Bear Island residents criticize dock at Cattle Landing BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

MEREDITH — Nearly two dozen residents, most from Bear Island, urged the Board of Selectmen to take steps to correct flaws in the design of the new docks at Cattle Landing when the board met last night. “”We’re delighted with the new dock,” began Don Morrissey of Gilford who summers on the island, “but it does have some problems.”

The floating concrete dock is 80 feet long. It is anchored by three piles projecting from the side of the dock, one at the end and two on the south side, bracketed to the dock by four-foot by six-foot timber frames or guides. It is lined with posts, set flush to the dock, with cleats between them. Morrisey said that not only did the piles limit the capacity of the dock but also posed a hazard to boats, which struck the guides. The pile at the end of the dock, he said, eliminated what had traditionally been a

“drop off and pick up” spot, available when both sides of the dock were occupied. He proposed framing and decking the docking to enclose the projecting piles. “I haven’t run into anyone who is pleased with the dock,” said Michael Robinson, who said his Boston Whaler was damaged when it slipped under the dock, then struck it when lifted by wave action. He said that such incidents were common with the small boats that represent much of the traffic at see DOCK page 13

Record turnout for 11th Annual Brenda’s Ride with Friends BY ROGER AMSDEN FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — The 11th annual Brenda’s Ride with Friends drew a record turnout of 239 motorcycles Saturday, with well in excess of 300 riders making the scenic run around Lake Winnipesaukee to raise funds for the Oncology Department at Lakes Region General Hospital. Bikers set out from the Weirs Beach Lob-

ster Pound at mid-morning with an escort of five police motorcycles from Laconia, Meredith, Tilton, Northfield and Alton and returned to the Lobster Pound for an afternoon of music, food and fund-raising raffles. The event was started in 2003 by Brenda Ganong, a cancer survivor since 1997, and her husband, John, and drew 35 bikes the first year it was held. Since then participation has grown every

CDC: 300,000 new Lyme disease cases each year

ATLANTA (AP) — Lyme disease is about 10 times more common than previously reported, health officials said Monday. As many as 300,000 Americans are actually diagnosed with Lyme disease each year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced. Usually, only 20,000 to 30,000 illnesses are reported each year. For many years, CDC officials have known that many doctors don’t report every case and that the true count was probably much higher. The new figure is the CDC’s most comprehensive attempt at a better estimate. The number comes from a survey of seven national laboratories, a national patient survey and a review of insurance information. “It’s giving us a fuller picture and it’s not a pleasing one,” said Dr. Paul Mead, who oversees the agency’s tracking of Lyme disease. The ailment is named after Lyme, Conn., where the illness was see LYME page 12

Village bloodbath highlights Egypt’s new agony CAIRO (AP) — The police captain says he has memories of pretending to be dead, of men being dragged around by cars, of a policeman being told by his attacker: “We will give you a slow death.” Mohammed Abdel-Hamid was the sole survivor of an assault on a police station a few kilometers (miles) from the Pyramids in which 15 police were killed by supporters of deposed President Mohammed Morsi. An officer in his 20s, he lies in a police hospital in Cairo, shot in the shoulder and leg, recounting to The Associated Press what happened in Kirdasah, an impoverished village ordinarily known for

its handmade rugs. This decades-old confrontation between two perennial Egyptian foes — police and Islamists — has erupted anew after the ouster of Mohammed Morsi, the elected Islamist president on July 3. It turned bloody on Wednesday, when the military raided two protest camps of Morsi’s supporters in Cairo, killing hundreds of people. The Kirdasah attack began three hours later, with the mob peppering the police station with firebombs and gunfire. Inside were Police Chief Gen. Mohammed Gabr; his deputy, Amer Abdel-Maksoud; and seven other officers plus seven

rank-and-file policemen and soldiers. “The whole town was in the streets protesting and chanting,” Abdel-Hamid. The siege went on for six hours until “we ran out of ammunition and we got no reinforcements while the machine-gun and automatic-weapons fire got heavier.” Rocket-propelled grenades demolished the outside gates and set vehicles on fire, he said. The last words he heard from the police chief on the phone to Cairo HQ were, “We are going to die here.” He said heavy smoke forced the men out of the building where attackers tied some see EGYPT page 7

Judge bars motive evidence in Fort Hood trial Mexico prints text

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — A military judge blocked several key pieces of evidence Monday that prosecutors said would explain the mindset of the soldier accused in the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, including his belief that he had a “jihad duty” to carry out the attack. Prosecutors had asked the judge to approve several witnesses and various evidence to support what they allege motivated Maj. Nidal Hasan to carry out the attack, which killed 13 people and wounded more than 30 others at the Texas military base. But the judge, Col. Tara Osborn, blocked nearly all of it.

Prosecutors wanted to suggest that Hasan, an American-born Muslim, carried out a “copycat” attack. But the judge said introducing such material would “only open the door to a mini-trial” of Akbar and result in a “confusion of issues, unfair prejudice, waste of time and undue delay.” The judge said prosecutors also couldn’t introduce three emails, ruling that the needed redactions would make them irrelevant.

books with 117 errors

MEXICO CITY (AP) — As Mexican children trooped back to school on Monday, they had already learned one lesson: You can’t believe everything you read in your textbook. Their new government-provided books are riddled with the sort of errors that students are supposed to be learning to avoid: misspellings, errors of grammar and punctuation, and at least one city located in the wrong state. The foul-up is an embarrassment for a government that is trying to overhaul Mexico’s much-criticized school system. Officials promised to give teachers a list of the errors so they can try to manually correct at least see BOOKS page 9

Kidnap suspect leaves Guardian chief: UK had newspaper drives destroyed LONDON (AP) — British agents oversaw the tough meetings in which officials demanded the money to victim’s family destruction of an unspecified number of the GuardGuardian comply. Eventually, he said, officials

SAN DIEGO (AP) — A man who died in a shootout with FBI agents after kidnapping a 16-year-old girl and killing her mother and brother named a member of the victims’ family as his life insurance beneficiary, a spokesman for the man’s family said Monday. James Lee DiMaggio left $112,000 to Hannah Anderson’s paternal grandmother, said Andrew Spanswick. He didn’t know why but believes it was for the benefit of Hannah, the girl abducted by DiMaggio. Hannah was rescued in the FBI shootout on Aug. 10 in the Idaho wilderness and returned home to San Diego. DiMaggio, 40, had been like an uncle to the Anderson children and the father’s best friend. DiMaggio named Bernice Anderson as the sole beneficiary of his employer-issued life insurance policy in 2011, substituting her for his sister Lora Robinson, the lone survivor of his immediate family, Spanswick said. DiMaggio lived with Bernice Anderson for about two years before buying a house in 2009 in Boulevard, about 65 miles east of San Diego, Spanswick said. Authorities found the remains of Christina Anderson, 44, and Ethan Anderson, 8, in the Boulevard house after it was set on fire. DiMaggio’s sister called Hannah’s father, Brett Anderson, on Friday to tell him about the life insurance payment. see KIDNAP page 12

threatened legal action, and that’s when the editor allowed British agents into his basement. A spokesman for British Prime Minister David Cameron declined comment. Rusbridger said the destruction wouldn’t curb the Guardian’s reporting, suggesting that copies of the Snowden files were held elsewhere and that reporting would continue outside the U.K. He added that British police’s recent detention of David Miranda — the partner of Guardian reporter Glenn Greenwald — and the seizure of the former’s laptop, phones, and other devices would similarly have no effect on Greenwald’s work. Snowden’s leaks — published in the Guardian, The Washington Post, and other publications — have exposed the details of the United States’ global surveillance apparatus, sparking an international debate over the limits of American spying. And as lawmakers debate reforms and civil liberties group go to court, journalists have been wrestling with the implications of mass surveillance. Rusbridger said Monday that the spies were growing so powerful “it may not be long before it will be impossible for journalists to have confidential sources.”

ian newspaper’s hard drives in an apparent bid to keep the fruit of Edward Snowden’s leaks safe from Chinese spies, the paper’s editor said Monday. Alan Rusbridger made the claim in an opinion piece published on the Guardian’s website, saying that a pair of staffers from British eavesdropping agency GCHQ monitored the process in what he called “one of the more bizarre moments in the Guardian’s long history.” He said the hard drives were torn apart in the basement of the Guardian’s north London office with “two GCHQ security experts overseeing the destruction ... just to make sure there was nothing in the mangled bits of metal which could possibly be of any interest to passing Chinese agents.” It was not clear exactly when the incident occurred. Rusbridger gave a vague timeline, suggesting that it happened within the past month or so. Guardian spokesman Gennady Kolker declined to comment further, and messages left with GCHQ after working hours were not immediately returned. An operator at the intelligence agency’s switchboard said no one was available until Tuesday. Rusbridger said the destruction was the culmination of weeks of pressure on the Guardian by British officials. Shortly after his paper began publishing reports based on Snowden’s leaks, he said he was contacted by “a very senior government official claiming to represent the views of the prime minister” who demanded the return or destruction of Snowden’s material.

Respect... make it contagious Imagine if you will, two young men meet somewhere in their town. They strike up a conversation and quickly become friends. It doesn’t seem to matter that one of the young men is obviously poor while the other seems to be from a rather well-off family. They meet on a regular basis and talk of the things that interest them both . . . their friendship grows. One morning before leaving home, William, the well-to-do young man, is advised by his mother that they are having friends for dinner and he replies that he will bring his friend. And he did. Sadly, William’s friend was embarrassed as he entered William’s beautiful home and saw all those people beautifully dressed chatting as they awaited to be served a sumptuous meal in the elegant dining room. It was, to say the least, awkward and humiliating. William’s heart ached for his friend and he couldn’t understand how his parents and their friends could not see beyond the tattered clothes of his friend and discover the person that he knew and respected, the person who was his friend. That experience so moved young William that he dedicated his life to bringing respect and nourishment of the body and soul to those who are often invisible to others. Young William Booth founded what we now know to be the worldwide Salvation Army. In Laconia, we are fortunate to have a very active and diverse branch of that army, headed up by Captains Steven and Sally Warren. Among their many outreach programs, the Salvation Army offers a noon day meal at what they call The Friendly Kitchen. Over 20 different churches and other organizations contribute to providing a substantial meal every Tuesday through Sunday noon at their main building on Union Avenue. There are no restrictions on who may enter the dining hall. Often, some of the diners are workers in the area who know they are welcome and who know that volunteers from some local church or other organization have prepared a nice luncheon, including beverages and desert. Other diners may be temporarily residing at the Carey House or be local folks who enjoy the meals and the social aspect of community dining. Often, if there are left-overs, the remaining food

can be given to the Carey House next door, where it will be used to help feed some of their residents. There are a number of organizations who contribute food stuffs to the Salvation Army, including local supermarkets, farms, and individuals. Should you like to make a food contribution please call the main office at 524-1834. Next door to the main building is the Salvation Army’s Carey House, 528-8086. This house provides temporary shelter for up to 31 people each night. Within that number there are three modest sized family units, and the other rooms can accommodate up to 14 men and 6 women. The Carey House staff works with each of the residents to develop action plans to help them find work and regain their independence. As part of those plans the staff assists in myriad ways to help the residents find permanent housing. In speaking with Amanda Lewis, the director of the Carey House, I asked what kinds of items are most needed to help support the Carey House operation. One of the first items mentioned was paper products, particularly toilet tissue. As you can imagine, the bodily functions of 31 people requires substantial amounts of bath and facial tissues, paper towels, bar soap, washing machine detergent, and other cleansing agents. Of course there are any number of food stuffs that would also be welcome. Please consider the Carey House needs when you make your next shopping trip . . . they are located on the corner of Union Avenue and Spring Street and have an ample parking lot right off Union Avenue. Another of the Good Works of the Salvation Army is its Thrift Store at 77 New Salem Street, in Laconia, 737-9998. This is a sizable location and it accepts most donations, except mattresses. Because of space limitations, on occasion they will put a hold on some electronics items that get overstocked. Otherwise, clothing (regardless of season), household items, furniture, toys, and most everything else is welcome. Those wishing to take a tax deduction simply need to ask and a receipt will be provided for the goods donated. This location provides temporary work for Carey House residents while also providing a shopping outlet for those seeking useful clothing, household, and electronics at very reasonable see MEADE next page

LETTERS Description of sex assault wasn’t suitable for public consumption To The Daily Sun, On Thursday (8/15), a front page story appeared regarding a local man facing multiple rape charges. Daily Sun reporter Gail Ober went too far in her unnecessarily graphic description of these alleged assaults. I believe, that most readers needed no more clarification than the official charges levied. Testimony in open court doesn’t need to be quoted when it is inappropri-

ate for public consumption. Whether young or old, your readers don’t glean more information from such sensationalism, the alleged crimes are disgusting enough, but your story was nothing short of pornographic. PS: I realize what sells newspapers, but Gail remember yours is FREE! Bill Akerley Gilford

With enough public input, delegation will vote for prudent spending To The Daily Sun, There is much discussion about the condition of the Belknap County Department of Corrections (Jail) and the idea of building a new 42 million dollar facility at $380,000 per inmate. Upon invitation, on August 12, 2013, we joined with several New Hampshire Representatives for a tour of the jail to learn about the building condition and utilization of space. The facility is located just north of the downtown Laconia area with the jail, sheriff and nursing home sharing the same location. The outdoor grounds look fine, parking seemed plentiful and the brick exterior of the building looks good. The building structure is made of concrete and brick materials that should last for hundreds of years if properly maintained. The current number of inmates being housed is about 111. The length of stay of inmates held between January 1, 2013 and August 12, 2013 included 439 for 1 to 15 days, about 119 held for 16 to 60 days and 78 held over 60 days. Almost 70 percent of the total number of inmates were held for less than 15 days. Jails are usually for non-convicted people being held waiting a trial, bail, etc. As we entered the building through a door near the newly renovated County Commissioners offices and conference/meeting room, the concrete walls were nicely painted, the flooring and ceilings looked great and restrooms were clean. The jail Superintendent Daniel Ward, Sr. did a superb job of briefly explaining the basic operations, the use of rooms and answered questions sincerely. He said tours of the jail

are done almost on a daily basis and anyone interested is welcome to call for a tour appointment. Through connecting doorways, we entered the main area of the jail where the security control room, classrooms, visiting booths and five maximum security cells are located. The overall condition looked great. The concrete walls have a fresh coat of paint and the resilient floors were shiny with polish. It was stated that the inmates painted the walls in this area. As we proceeded through a hallway to the large gym area where 16 minimum security woman inmates were jointly housed, it was obvious that building maintenance was little to none. The concrete walls and floors need painting and the ceilings have large stain marks. Upon inquiring about the stains, the explanation was that the roof leaks and buckets are used to catch rainwater. It was unknown as to why the leaks have not been repaired. Roof leaks can cause much damage to ceilings, walls, electrical circuits, etc. and should be patched right away to stop the leak until a permanent repair is completed. The beds were basic metal framed with mattress. However, it sure seems that the use of bunk beds by jail inmates is appropriate since military personnel are required to sleep in them as Mr. David DeVoy, an experienced longtime military person pointed out in a recent letter. About 43 minimum security men were located in two large rooms with a shared bathroom. The upstairs room, referred to as the attic, was housing about 13 “work release” inmates who work at the nursing home. A portable

LETTERS Middle East cultures seem to be best under control of strong men To The Daily Sun, After reading, watching and listening to the news and debates concerning events in the Middle East over the past few years I’ve begun to question this nation’s belief that people in that part of the world actually seek or even approve of democracy. Most recently the “Arab Spring” has turned pretty stormy which is really not much different from before the democracy movements. Perhaps I’m wrong but given the history, culture, and dominate religion, Islam, all of which are authoritarian based, I consider that it is perhaps a fools errand to attempt to promote democracy there. That culture seems to have done best when under the control of one sort of strong man or another. Now I’m not saying that is any sort of just or even a peaceful society but compared to the chaos

of the recent half century it could not be much worse. Presently Egypt is suffering from the threat of potential civil war; Syria is in full blown revolt with 100,000 dead, some estimate; Iraq is showing signs of joining the bloody circus as has Libya and Afghanistan. Right now here in the U.S. our leaders are debating whether or not we should provide weapons to the Syrian rebels and what to do about Egypt? I say stay clear of the whole thing, we have no dog in those fights. Getting involved is a no-win position for us. Who ever prevails in Syria will be no friend of ours and in Egypt the army kept the Muslim brotherhood under control for decades so even if another Mubarak gains power that is better for us then the brotherhood. Still let them decide. Steve Earle Hill

from preceding page air conditioner used in the medical room was relocated to the attic area during the recent heat spell. Purchasing more of the relatively low cost portable air conditioning units could be a reasonable solution when summer temperatures are extreme. There are about 10 smaller rooms housing between 3 and 7 inmates each that have several individual rooms with bunks off a common area used for TV watching, card games, etc. Some of the individual room door locks broke and have not worked for a long time. The locks were never repaired due to high cost and apparent lack of real need. The neglect of ongoing maintenance makes these inmate areas look run down and dirty since the walls and floor need painting, the bathrooms are in need of patching, tiling, painting, etc. However, painting is inexpensive, especially if the inmates do the work as they did in the main area of the jail. The showers could be repaired by removing old wall material, replacing plumbing fixtures as needed and installing new wall backing with ceramic tiles. One shower stall was lined with plastic sheathing in attempt to stop water from penetrating the walls. A skilled plumber and tile contractor could repair a shower stall in only a couple of day’s time. This should be done right away since water leaks from the shower could cause more damage in other areas. An estimate for a new jail building was obtained since some believe that the jail looks so bad it is not repairable. Most admit that the 42 million dollars seems exorbitant. Before spending many millions of dollars for a new building and demolishing the existing space, it would be prudent to obtain several estimates to fix the roof on a permanent

basis, remodel the bathrooms, install reasonable air and heating systems, tile some of the floors while allowing the inmates to paint all the walls and remaining floors. Upon completion of remodeling, this area will look like the main area mentioned earlier. In terms of space, a tour handout indicates the design capacity of the jail is 87 inmates, which is 24 less than the current 111. An estimate from several contractors to build a basic concrete wall addition with brick veneer exterior about 10,000 SF in size (much less than 15 percent of the combined existing facility) seems like a reasonable way of increasing the capacity. At 100 to 200 dollars per square foot, the cost would be between 1 and 2 million dollars. The additional space along with the use of bunk beds will provide more than the needed inmate capacity. It will also free up the gym to be used again for winter exercise and other activities. Hopefully, the 42 million dollar new jail building amount is not being used as a means of convincing people that a 21 million dollar building will be a bargain! Also, if neglecting jail repairs is being used as an attempt to justify an entirely new jail building, the strategy should be stopped. With enough public input, optimistically, the majority of the current delegation will vote for prudent spending. In the meantime, using a practical approach to make repairs should be approved before there is more unnecessary damage to the building. Rep. Jane Cormier (Belknap District 8) Rep. Stephen Holmes (Belknap District 5) Robert Daniels Alton

Got Lunch! Laconia program co-founder John Walker presents Mayor Mike Seymour with a plaque honoring his efforts on behalf of the program. (Roger Amsden photo for the Laconia Daily Sun)

Got Lunch! hailed as a revolution that started in Laconia BY ROGER AMSDEN

LACONIA — Laconia Mayor Mike Seymour hailed the success of Laconia’s Got Lunch! at an ice cream social Monday afternoon honoring the program’s volunteer workers. Seymour, who was presented with a ‘’Mayor Mike’’ plaque at the event, said he couldn’t be more proud, of the efforts of those involved in the program, which since it started three years ago has delivered 61,567 lunches to hundreds of school age children during the summer months. The program has now spread to 14 New Hampshire communities. Saymour called Got Lunch! ‘’a revolution which started right here in Laconia.’’ John Walker, who along with the Rev. Paula Gile, associate pastor of the Congregational Church of Laconia, UCC, helped start the now widely emulated program, said that Seymour’s support and encouragement, along with that of former Superintendent of Schools Bob Champlin, were crucial in getting the program up and running and involving the community in supporting it. Seymour said that it now seems surprising to him that no one else had devised a summer program for feed-

ing school children when nearly 70 percent of the city’s school children qualified for free or reduced lunch programs. Walker said that more than 25,000 meals were distributed by the program to more than 500 children this summer during the weeks when schools are not in session and that more than 70 volunteers helped pack and assemble shopping bags filled with groceries, including fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as delivering them to more than 300 households across the city. ‘’When we got together to start the program the first person I called was Ed Engler at the Laconia Daily Sun and he said he’d be glad to help us get the word out about it. The first call I got after the story ran was from Mayor Seymour and he’s been a strong supporter since that time,’’ said Walker. He said that there are now 14 similar programs in the state and the latest community to start a Got Lunch! program is Gilford, where Tom Francouer has volunteered to lead the effort. Walker praised Seymour’s work as mayor, calling him ‘’the best small-city mayor in the country,’’ and said that his leadership will be missed when his term of office ends in January.

RIDE from page one One rider who has been at all 11 events is Kurt McLaughlin, a firefighter from Cambridge, Mass., who grew up with John Ganong in Somerville, Mass., where they both rode motorcycles together as teenagers. “I wouldn’t miss it,’’ says McLaughlin, who just arrived back home from attending the Sturgis, S.D., motorcycle rally and was riding with a contingent of Cambridge firefighters in Saturday’s ride.

“This community is unbelievable. Everybody pulls together to help out. That’s why it’s so great to live here,” said John Ganong, who moved to the Lakes Region 30 years ago from Somerville, Mass., and has been involved in the real estate field in the Lakes Region for many years.

Youssef insists he didn’t break election law LACONIA — Former District 7 Senate candidate Joshua Youssef said yesterday that he did not violate any state election laws when he created a blog that mirrored that of his ex-wife’s attorney Ed Mosca. He said his blog, www.edmoscablog. com, had a disclaimers throughout, saying Mosca was not responsible for its content and it was not affiliated with Mosca. Youssef, a Laconia Republican, lost his bid for the District 7 Senate seat in 2012 to Democrat Andrew Hosmer, also of Laconia. Youssef said he was very concerned that the Office of the State Attorney would continue to spend the time and resources of the taxpayers to investigate an alleged election law violation months after the complaint was no longer relevant. Youssef, who said he will likely run again for the Senate District 7 seat in 2014, said the investigation into was “beyond irresponsible” and is emblematic of the waste of government resources he believes is one of the biggest problem facing the state. On Aug. 6, the civil division of the AG’s Office told him to “cease and desist” using or face possible criminal charges. Assistant Attorney General Stephen G. LaBonte said Youssef violated

the provision of RSA 666:6 by creating the blog he said was close enough to Mosca’s blog that people could misconstrue who wrote it. The investigation was triggered by a complaint filed in February. “This is state agencies wielding power they don’t have,” Youssef said yesterday, adding only a court of law has the legal right to “order” him to do stop using the blog. “No (criminal) charges have ever been filed,” Youssef said, noting only a judge or jury could order a “cease and desist.” “Some believe RSA 666:6 is not constitutional and would be struck down if challenged to the Supreme Court,” he said, classifying his use of the blog as “free speech” and saying the courts have traditionally given “broad latitude” to political speech. He said the investigation into www. was politically motivated by a Democratic Party-led executive branch. “Now I’m more politically motivated than I ever have been, “ Youssef said. “Government is a customer service industry and the people of New Hampshire have lost faith in their government.” He said he would work to restore that faith. District 7 is comprised of Laconia, Franklin, Belmont, Gilford, Northfield, Webster, Canterbury, Andover and Salisbury.

EGYPT from page 2 of them to cars and dragged them, beat them with wooden and metal poles, stabbed and poured acid on them, slashed their throats. A video posted on social networking sites and circulated on newspaper websites such as el-Watan showed the police chief stripped of his clothes, sitting in a pool of blood, next to a dozen others. A second showed a scalped officer. A third showed one of the policemen on the asphalt with his back to a car that appeared to have been used in his dragging. Someone with face off-camera was seen killing a motionless man. Abdel-Hamid said he and three soldiers fled into a residential building to seek refuge but he was turned back by an old man who called him “traitor.” He said he and others were dragged across the village to the steps of a mosque where others were lined up for beatings and mutilation. “I still remember the sounds of the prayers blaring from loudspeakers just behind me, but that didn’t stop the bearded men from finally opening fire on all of us,” the captain said. He

slumped beside the bodies, pretending he too was dead, and like the others was covered in a sheet. Later two men discovered he was alive and spared him, thinking he was a poor soldier, he said. They “were filming me and asking me to complain about the Interior Ministry not sending us reinforcements,” he said. He said he was put on a motorcycle taxi, dumped in front of a relative’s home and then taken to the police hospital. For Egyptians, the current violence is reminiscent of the Islamist insurgency that raged in through part of the 1980s and 1990s. Hundreds were slain on both sides. Security forces stormed villages and killed dozens; militants on motorcycles assassinated officers. Foreigners and Egyptian Christians were targets of terrorist attacks. “These days are back,” said policeman Yasser Abdel-Hamid, speaking at the Police Hospital in Cairo after visiting his injured boss. After five days of deadly street battles with pro-Morsi supporters, “I can’t sleep for the sound of whistling sniper fire,” he said.

It’s like a miracle,’’ says Brenda, who says that one of her grandsons, 11-year-old Ben Gloddy of Northfield , is the New England flat track motorcycle racing junior champion. She isn’t the only Ganong who feels that a miracle has taken place in their life. Her husband, John, who had a heart transplant in January 2011, says that

he’s ‘’never felt better in his life.’’ John, who has been known to ride his motorcycle dressed in a Santa Claus outfit at various fundraising events ever since he moved to the Lakes Region, performed a Blue Brothers routine with his son, Jason, Saturday afternoon.

MOULTONBOROUGH — Paul Punturieri, a member of the Planning Board who as “Moultonboro Blogger” operates the website “Moultonboro Speaks,” has begun soliciting signatures on a petition urging the Board of Selectmen to abandon removal proceedings against two members of the Planning Board — Josh Bartlett and Judy Ryerson. The petition, posted on-line at “Moultonboro Speaks,” reads: “We the undersigned citizens of Moultonboro, New Hampshire hereby petition the Moultonboro Board of Selectmen to cancel the scheduled public hearings to remove two elected Moultonboro Planning Board members and immediately refer the matter directly to the Moultonboro Planning Board for any action they so choose.” By press time, there were 31 signatories to the petition. Punturieri’s goal is to collect 500 signatures. On July 18, after conferring the town counsel Peter Minkow, the selectmen agreed to exercise the authority granted them by statute to remove elected members of the Planning Board after a public hearing. After Bartlett and Ryerson declined an offer to resign, the selectmen scheduled a public hearing on Sept. 9 to determine if there is sufficient cause to remove them for “inefficiency, neglect of duty or malfeasance in office.” Last week the Planning Board, after a lengthy discussion at a special meeting, approved a resolution not to support the removal of Bartlett and Ryerson by a vote of three-to-one. — Michael Kitch

BOOKS from page 2 117 mistakes. The Education Department acknowledged it found them only after 235 million elementary textbooks were being printed. “It’s not fair. Children are impressionable. The moment they see the error, it stays with them,” complained Edith Salinas, a graphic designer who had just dropped her sixth-grade girl off at school. Education Secretary Emilio Chuayffet has called the errors “unforgivable,” but he blames Mexico’s previous administration for the stumble. He says he was faced with the predicament of choosing between stopping the printing of flawed textbooks so they could be corrected and making sure the country’s 26 million school children had textbooks for each

subject at the start of classes. Earlier this month, Chuayffet pledged to find out who was responsible. He also gave the Mexican Academy of Language the task of ensuring that future editions won’t have such errors. “How are we going to nurture minds with grammatical mistakes?” he said when he signed an agreement with the academy. Still, Chuayffet’s department has been less than transparent about just what the errors are. It had not released the list of mistakes to the public or even to the language academy members. The teacher’s union also said it had seen no such list, and teachers leaving the classrooms on Monday said they had not received it.

Forrester could be in line for chair of powerful Senate Finance Committee By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

CONCORD — Midway through her second term in the New Hampshire Senate Jeanie Forrester (R-Meredith) could find herself chairing the powerful Senate Finance Committee with the reshuffling of the Senate leadership following the decision of Senator Peter Bragdon (R-Milford) to resign as President of the Senate. Bragdon resigned the presidency amid controversy triggered by his original decision to keep the position while simultaneously serving as executive director of the Local Government Center (LGC). Almost at once Senator Chuck Morse (R-Salem), chairman of the Finance Committee, announced his bid to succeed Bragdon and was immediately endorsed by Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley (R-Wolfeboro), who equally quickly endorsed his

candidacy. Morse is serving his fourth term in the Senate and his third as chairman of the Finance Committee. Forrester, who was the lone freshman to serve on the Finance Committee in her first term became vice-chairman in her second. Yesterday Forrester acknowledged that she has been the subject of speculation, but declined further comment. Meanwhile, Harrell Kirstein, communications director of the New Hampshire Democratic Party, charged that Forrester was tied to controversy surrounding Bragdon’s acceptance of the post with the LGC. According to Kirstein, Bragdon, speaking on WMURTV last weekend, indicated that he began considering the position with the LGC on July 12 while flying to a conference in Seattle. A week later he appointed Forrester to committee studying the LGC and the statute governing the management of risk pools.

“Why, days after he decided to seek the LGC job did he abuse his powers as Senate President to stack an oversight committee with Senator Forrester?,” Kirstein asked. “What promises did Forrester make to Bragdon in exchange for being appointed to a committee overseeing the LGC?,” he continued. “Did she know that he was seeking a publicly funded $180,000 per year job with the organization at the time?” Forrester flatly denied suggestions that there was anything improper about her appointment. She said that that she was not aware that Bragdon had taken an interest in the job with the LGC when he appointed her to the study committee. As the vice-chair of the Senate Public and Municipal Affairs Committee and a former town administrator in Tuftonboro and New Durham, she considered the appointment appropriate. She said that she had a significant interest and extensive experience of the controversy surrounding the LGC and during the summer hosted several roundtables in her district with George Bald, the LGC’s interim executive director. “The LGC did some things that must be corrected,” Forrester said, recalling that the issues by the Bureau of Securities Regulation, especially the refund of excess premiums to municipalities, were raised when she was a town administrator. However, she added: “If these problems can be corrected, I don’t want to to see the LGC go away.” Likewise, she insisted that the New Hampshire Municipal Association provides valuable services to cities and towns and is no longer bound to the LGC. FORT HOOD from page 2 sent numerous emails starting in December 2008 to Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical U.S.-born Islamic cleric killed by a drone strike in Yemen in 2011. However, the judge will allow evidence about Internet searches on Hasan’s computer around the time of the attack and websites that Hasan had listed as “favorites.” Military prosecutors have said they would show that Hasan felt he had a “jihad duty,” referring to a Muslim term for a religious war or struggle. Prosecutors have called almost 80 witnesses so far, but they weren’t expected to begin tackling his motive until this week. Hasan — who is acting as his own attorney but has mostly sat in silence — could also soon shed light on such questions, if prosecutors rest their case as expected this week. If Monday were any indication, he may be ready to talk. In a rare move, Hasan spoke up on Monday, first to challenge the government’s definition of “jihad” and, for the first time since the day testimony began, questioned a witness. Hasan briefly cross-examined Staff Sgt. Juan Alvarado, who saw a gunfight between Hasan and Kimberly Munley, one of the Fort Hood police officers who responded to the shootings. Alvarado said Hasan tried to shoot Munley after she had been shot and disarmed. “Are you saying — and I don’t want to put words in your mouth — are you saying that after it was clear that she was disarmed, I continued to fire at her?” Hasan asked. Alvarado said that was correct. The exchange marked the first time Hasan has questioned a witness to the shooting. And earlier Monday, Hasan asked that the definition of “jihad” be adjusted. Prosecutors didn’t object, and jurors were told that “under Islam, the central doctrine that calls on believers to combat enemies of the religious belief.” Such moments have been rare during the trial, during which Hasan has rarely spoken. In fact, the judge — once again — urged Hasan on Monday to forgo representing himself and to allow trained attorneys to take over. Osborn told Hasan she believed he would be better off with a lawyer who knew the rules for military trials, such as when to raise objections and how to spot issues that could be cited on appeal. “Remember when I told you that I thought you would be better off with a trained lawyer, who would know the rules for courts martial. ... You know that,” the judge said. “Repeatedly,” Hasan replied. “You still wish to proceed pro se?” she asked. “I do,” Hasan said.

Creditors file objections to Detroit bankruptcy DETROIT (AP) — The city’s biggest employee union, retirees and even a few dozen residents filed objections Monday to Detroit’s request for bankruptcy protection, the largest municipal filing in U.S. history and a move aimed at wiping away billions of dollars in debt. The filing by the American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees Michigan Council 25 also came before expected objections from two city pension systems, bondholders, banks and others who hope to convince federal Judge Steven Rhodes not to allow the Chapter 9 petition by Detroit emergency manager Kevyn Orr. Rhodes set Monday as the eligibility objection deadline. Attorneys for large creditors have until just before midnight to file objections electronically. Individual creditors who fear losing their pensions and paying more for health care began filing objections Monday in person at the court. By early Monday evening, more than 100 objections had been filed including those made by several smaller city unions. “We think the creditors and banks will

make objections during the litigation on a proposed plan of adjustment, which we are slating to be finished by year’s end,” said Bill Nowling, spokesman for Orr. Since 1954, 29 of 62 municipal bankruptcies pursued in the U.S. have been dismissed. The AFSCME, the AFL-CIO and city retirees claim in their objection that Michigan’s emergency manager law — which gives Orr his authority — impairs vested pension rights violating the state constitution. They also claim Orr did not negotiate in good faith with city creditors and that he has not yet proved Detroit is insolvent. “The city, led by its unelected, politically appointed emergency manager ... hastily commenced this unconstitutional, unlawfully authorized Chapter 9 proceeding seeking the haven of bankruptcy to illegally attempt to slash pension and other post-employment benefit obligations and cram such reductions down the throats of current and former city employees such as the AFSCME Detroit Employees,” read their objection.

KIDNAP from page one “They had a long conversation about their mutual loss, trying to make sense of what happened, and neither of them had an explanation,” Spanswick said. “Brett seemed to recognize that Lora was as much a victim in this as everyone else. He wished her the best.” A request for comment from Brett Anderson, made through family spokeswoman Stacy Hess, was not immediately answered. DiMaggio worked as a telecommunications technician at The Scripps Research Institute in San Diego. Spokeswoman Jan Coury declined to comment. Steven Weisbart, chief economist at

the industry-backed Insurance Information Institute, said insurers generally won’t challenge a claim unless the beneficiary is suspected of involvement in the death. Investigators have given no indication that DiMaggio had any accomplices. “Pretty much as long you’re dead, the insurance company has very little opportunity to deny the claim,” Weisbart said. Lora Robinson has taken possession of her brother’s cat, Princess, from Hannah Anderson, Spanswick said. DiMaggio, a cat-lover, took Princess while on the run, and the cat was reunited with Hannah after the rescue.

LYME from page 2 first identified in 1975. It’s a bacteria transmitted through the bites of infected deer ticks, which can be about the size of a poppy seed. Symptoms include a fever, headache and fatigue and sometimes a telltale rash that looks like a bull’seye centered on the tick bite. Most people recover with antibiotics. If left untreated, the infection can cause

arthritis and more severe problems. In the U.S., the majority of Lyme disease reports have come from 13 states: Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Virginia and Wisconsin. The new study did not find anything to suggest the disease is more geographically widespread, Mead said.

SMALL from page one Police Chief Merritt “Doug” Salmon said yesterday police were called to the campground around 10:50 p.m. on Friday by the girls’ father. He said police interviewed everyone involved and determined there was enough probable cause to arrest Irving Small, 69, 14B Meetinghouse Lane in Hanson, Mass. The alleged victims are from neighboring Whitman, Mass., and Small knows the family. Hanson and Whitman are neighboring communities south of Brockton, Mass., in the southeastern portion of the state. In court yesterday, New Hampton Police Sgt. Monica Cunningham testified that she separately interviewed both girls, who are in their early teens, as well as other members of the family. She said the disclosure of the alleged

assault initially came from the girls’ older sister who reported it to her father. The father called New Hampton Police. Salmon said Small faces two separate felony counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault — each offers a different theory of the case — and one felony count of indecent exposure. Salmon said the case centers around alleged activity over the past week but said his department is also working very closely with Massachusetts police and community resources in both states. Judge Jim Carroll ordered Small to sign a waiver of extradition and to stay away from the family and the communities in which they live. As of 10 p.m., Small had not posted bail. A probable cause hearing is scheduled for Aug. 27.


DOCK from page one the dock. Others pointed out that the posts, which are flush with the dock are of little use when tying up or stepping ashore, while the cleats are a hazard to those getting in and out of their boats. One man noted that the ramp is not properly matched to the dock, hindering the use of wheelchairs. The selectmen directed Warren to present the issues to the manufacturer and ask what can be done to address them and, at the same time, to approach the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services to determine if Morrissey’s proposal would represent an expansion of the dock requiring the agency’s approval.

had it not been raining or had there been too much snow for firefighters to access the area, it’s possible that many of the other homes would have burned as well. Many also reminded selectmen they have town sewer and pay fairly high property taxes. The town is undertaking a road inventory to gradually determine the legal status of all the roads in Belmont. The inventory began in 2009 and, according to state law, it is illegal for a municipality to spend money or resources maintaining private roads. The standard for a public road is set by state law and states a road must have been prescriptively used or used without the permission of the owner since 1948 in order to be “grandfathered.” The only other way a road can be public is if the town builds it, if it is part of a designated subdivision, or if the road is brought up to a minimum standard and the town votes to accept it as a public road. The east portion of Jefferson Road from Tucker Shore Road to the railroad tracks was built by the town in 1937 and will continue to be a public road. The westerly section, said Land Use Technician Rick Ball, “is not that clear-cut.” The earliest record regarding plowing and regular maintenance of Jefferson Road west is in 1973 when the Board of Selectmen told the former road agent to plow it. Selectman Chair Ron Cormier told the crowd that the town is not trying to take something away from them but must definitively prove the west portion of Jefferson Road is public in order to legally continue plowing it. He encouraged them to check their deeds and bring any available information to the town for review. Selectmen said last night that as a result of road inventory, the town has stopped maintaining other private roads in Belmont. Cormier said the westerly portion of Jefferson Road — or Jefferson Loop — is not the only private road to lose services, but it is one of the private roads in town that has the most homes and residents.

BELMONT — Selectmen voted unanimously last night to continue servicing what they consider to be the private portion of Jefferson Road and all of Lakeside Drive until Oct. 20, 2014. With about 60 people packed into the Corner Meeting House, the board told residents to research their property records to see if there is any proof the town was responsible for the portion of Jefferson Road west of the railroad tracks. “It just doesn’t make a lot of sense,” said one woman whose family has owned property for years and has had town sewer since the 1980s. “We don’t want to get an attorney but we certainly will.” Last night’s public hearing was really to discuss declaring Bayview Road and Wakeman Road emergency access roads, but most who came were residents of the west portion of Jefferson Road who also want an emergency declaration. As a result of the decision to wait, there will be no change in services until October 2014 although selectmen had initially planned to stop services much sooner. Many who spoke at last night’s public hearing said not maintaining or plowing that portion of road should fall under the same emergency clause as Bayview and Wakeman Roads because not maintaining them will create a safety hazard. One man said his home burned down in 2006 and,

The amount of soda Americans consume is alarming. Teens today drink three times more soda than 20 years ago. We all know soda contains sugar, but did you know that acids are formed once the sugar combines with plaque (a sticky film of bacteria constantly forming on our teeth)? One study from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry tested different products and assigned numbers to them (pH) based on the amount of acid the product contained. The lower the number, the more acid is in the product. Pure water is “7” (neutral), battery acid is “1”. The acid formed in your mouth from popular cola drinks rates “2.5”! The stickiness of bacteria keeps the harmful acids against the teeth and these acids attack and dissolve tooth enamel. This process of “biocorrosion” results in a damaged area that we call a “cavity”. Soda is not the only culprit – fruit juice and sports drinks are almost as bad, along with foods that contain sugars and starches. The longer the food remains in the mouth (especially with breath mints, hard candy and cough drops), the more the teeth are subjected to acid attacks. Adults with receding gum lines are also at risk because acid can do more damage below the gum line (not visible to the eye) than above it. Good oral health means making wise decisions and limiting your intake of sweet drinks & sugary snack foods is one of them.

Kuster in Plymouth today to discuss efforts to end homelessness with local veterans, advocates PLYMOUTH — U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster will meet with local veterans and advocates to discuss homelessness and other issues facing retired service members during a visit to the Bridge House Shelter today at 11 a.m. Kuster, who represents the 2nd Congressional District, is a member of the House Veteran’s Affairs Committee. She will provide an overview of efforts currently under way in Congress and within the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to end veteran homelessness. She will also seek input and feedback from local veterans and other roundtable participants, including officials from the Bridge House, who will discuss the agency’s inclusive ser-

vice model, among other topics. The Bridge House, which serves veterans and civilians alike and their families, originally opened in 1989, licensed to serve eight people. Since then, the agency has relocated to its current Highland Avenue location, which often serves as many as 30 people and features a range of counseling, job training and parenting program, among others. Cathy Bentwood, the agency’s director, is also working with other local leaders to develop Soldier On New Hampshire, the state’s first permanent housing community, which could house up to 50 formerly homeless veterans.

Appalachian Mountain Teen Project Receives $2,000 Grant from Meredith Village Savings Bank MEREDITH — The Appalachian Mountain Teen Project (AMTP), a non-profit, community-based prevention program that operates throughout the Lakes Region of New Hampshire, has received a $2,000 grant from the Meredith Village Savings Bank Fund. These funds will help support the organization’s activity-based mentoring program, which uses a powerful combination of interventions to encourage the social, emotional, economic, academic and vocational success of young people facing challenging life circumstances. The activity-based mentor program fosters resilience and leadership skills in youth through group activities and weekly one-on-one mentoring in the school setting from a professional staff member. The group events range from school activities to day long and multi-day/overnight trips focusing on outdoor wilderness adventure and experiential education. The program also provides opportunities for older participants to serve in leadership roles. “With recent budget cuts at the state level, many community programs have had to close or cut services,” said Nathan Boston, Executive Director for Appalachian Mountain Teen Project. “With support from local organizations, we have been able to con-

LRPC launches Soak Up the Rain Waukewan

MEREDITH — This summer, the Lakes Region Planning Commission (LRPC) is implementing Soak Up the Rain Waukewan, a new site-level education and planning program to assist selected property owners in the five communities comprising the Lake Waukewan watershed. The purpose of the program is to work with residents interested in evaluating their property’s interaction with the lake and taking steps to maximize the property’s ecological performance. Property owners in the Lake Waukewan watershed are eligible to receive free technical assistance that will provide a snap shot of their property’s current impact on the lake, a list of low-cost, do-it-yourself improvements, and an action plan for implementation. Although the program is new, its formation is the result of many years of hard work advanced by local officials, researchers, and volunteers seeking to manage and protect one of the region’s key natural resources. Randy Eifert, Chairman of the Waukewan Watershed Advisory Committee recalls the outcomes first envisioned by his Committee when it released its award-winning Waukewan Watershed Management Plan almost a decade ago: “Since 2005, our Committee, comprised of volunteers from the Lake’s five communities, has been seeking opportunities to address the top recommendations from our Plan. Stormwater planning is one of our highest concerns and this project will complement our endeavors and assist us tremendously.” While the primary focus of the program is to provide technical assistance, some funding is also available to go a step further with four pilot sites, where recommended best management practices (BMPs) will be installed to emphasize the program’s educational component. According to Kimon Koulet, LRPC’s Executive Director, “These installations, funded partially through the program and partially by the property owner, will create functioning, three-dimensional examples of the installations and practices that see next page from preceding page gling children and young adults a second chance at a bright, successful future and the opportunity to build friendships and mentor relationships that will last a lifetime.” The Appalachian Mountain Teen Project (AMTP) was initiated as a summer program in 1984 with start-up support from NHCF by program founder, Donna San Antonio, and was incorporated as a year round program in 1987. AMTP was created as an independent, community-based non-profit youth and community service program to serve the Lakes Region of Central New Hampshire. Since 1984, AMTP has formed long-term mentoring relationships with over 550 teens and conducted thousands of activity days with teen groups. Over time, the program has expanded to include parenting courses, classroom based diversity programs, a program to help youth successfully transition to Middle School, and efforts to improve access to and success in post-secondary education. Since 1984, the AMTP has served over 5,400 people in 8 school districts and 19 communities.

organizations of all sizes in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont and supports the arena’s programs and operations. Many of these programs are open to the public and promote a healthy, active lifestyle for New Hampshire’s citizens and families. “We are inviting the public to a free Community Skating Party as a way to express our deep appreciation for Northeast Delta Dental and their many contributions to the well-being of this and hundreds of other New England David Gyger, PSU Ice Arena Manager; Tammie Croft, Senior Account Manager, Northeast Delta Dental; communities,” said PSU Stephen Barba, PSU Executive Director of University Relations; and John Scheinman, PSU Major Gifts President Sara Jayne Officer at Plymouth State University’s Hanaway Rink.

Donations of unwanted boats helps keep Lake Winnipesaukee Sailing Association afloat GILFORD — The Lake Winnipesaukee Sailing Association sailing school, a non-profit organization, derives a portion of its funding from the generous donations of older boats by people in the Lakes Region community. Some of these boats are used in the program, while others are sold. Info In July LWSA received the generous donation of a 14 foot Carolina Skiff with a 25 HP outboard. The boat was donated by Tom Dalton, a Belmont cabinet maker and contractor. This sturdy boat will be used by the sailing school as a chase/ rescue boat. Instructor Liam Shanahan, center; boat donor Thomas Dalton, right, and LWSA instructor Ben Crosby The LWSA Sailing with donated Carolina Skiff. (Courtesy photo) School has taught thousands of local youngsters from 7 to 16 years of age to nationally certified instructors who teach in a fleet of sail over the past 26 seasons. The program has five 27 sailboats and four motorboats. See from preceding page DES, LRPC and others have been featuring and promoting for effective storm water management. They will serve to educate and familiarize local officials with simple, low-cost stormwater solutions.” Sites selected to receive assistance will exhibit high potential for improved runoff interruption, dissipation, infiltration and/or detention. In particular, the program seeks to facilitate improvements that will alleviate dissolved oxygen impairment in the lake. For example, properties with large areas of bare soil/sand susceptible to

erosion, sites with roof/driveway runoff that travels uninterrupted during storms, and sites with lawns extending to the shoreline all represent sites whose ecological function would be enhanced through the program’s recommendations and implementation projects. Soak Up the Rain Waukewan is being initiated by the LRPC and funded through the NH Department of Environmental Services. Individuals interested in enrolling in the program or needing more information can contact Dari Sassan, LRPC Regional Planner, at (603) 279-8171 or

Beyond the Fringe hair salon relocates to historic Streetcar Building LACONIA — Local salon owner Kelsey Nims knew she needed more space to satisfy growing customer demand for services. As the owner of Beyond the Fringe, she knew that she needed more parking, larger styling areas and updated equipment, which meant moving. So, when she began searching for just the right space for her salon, she knew it was going to be a challenge. When introduced to the available space in the historic Streetcar Building in downtown Laconia she knew it was the right fit, for her and her clients. Open in the new location since early 2013, Nims is thrilled with the growth she’s witnessing. “To take Beyond The Fringe to the next level, I knew I was going to have to move. When I saw the Streetcar Building location, it was obvious: the physical characteristics of the building and the available space were so impressive, I knew I

wanted my salon associated with the heart and soul of the Lakes Region community. With over 1,000 employees in one-quarter mile of the downtown area, the Streetcar Building is the right space for the salon, now and in the future. I couldn’t be happier with the increase in our client base.” Weeks Commercial, the largest commercial and industrial real estate brokerage firm from the Lakes Region to the north country, handled the transaction. Sales Associate Kevin Sullivan brokered the lease and maintains the exclusive listing for the available remaining space in the building. The Streetcar Building houses professional/ office and restaurant space in a historic, turn of the century brick manufacturing building. Completely renovated in the 1980’s for its current use, the building was originally home to the Laconia Car Company, which

New hires announced for Newfound School District office

NEWFOUND — The Newfound Area School Board is holding an Open House welcome reception to meet the new superintendent of schools, Stacy Buckley, on Wednesday, September 11 from 5-7 p.m. at the Newfound Regional High School library media center. In addition to the new superintendent, Michaela Limanni and Anne Holton have been appointed to new positions at the central office of SAU#4. Limanni has been appointed as the new business administrator of SAU #4. Limanni has an extensive business background in both the public and private sectors and has most recently worked as the business administrator for the Dover School District. Limanni will begin his service to the Newfound Area School District on Monday, September 16 and will be replacing Dan Rossner who will be leaving the position at the end of September after five years of dedicated and exemplary service. Holton has been appointed as the student services administrator for the Newfound Area School District. Holton began her position on July 1. She has an extensive background in special education and administration and was chosen from a highly qualified pool of applicants for the position. The School Board commissioned a study to examine its special education costs relative to other similar districts this past year and believes Holton will be an excellent addition to the team. Vincent Paul Migliore, School Board Chair, notes “The Board now has in place an experienced administrative team to lead our district to future success and improvement. We look forward to working with the new team to continue to advance education and programming for the students, families and taxpayers of the Newfound Area School District”.

manufactured cable cars, and then the Laconia Shoe Company. It is owned by Cable Car Realty of Nashua. Bill Dube, owner of Cable Car Realty, reflected on his confidence at having a locally owned real estate firm handle the transactions in the building. “Weeks Associates has done a great job bringing quality tenants to the Streetcar Building. Cable Car Reality has a history of downtown revitalization efforts in New Hampshire and we want to be an integral investor in the redevelopment of downtown Laconia. As such, the addition of Beyond The Fringe to the building is a welcome addition to the other fine tenants we have and continues to help rebuild a strong economic base in the local community. Our partnership with Weeks is a rewarding and fruitful one.” At right: Realtor Kevin Sullivan of Weeks Commercial Real Estate and salon owner Kelsey Nims stand in front of the entrance to Beyond The Fringe Salon, which opened early this year.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You express yourself passionately when appropriate, but what is needed today is a more controlled and to-the-point energy. Practice your presentation with this end in mind. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Anyone can react to bad news. You’re different. You’re empathic, and you use your gift to (SET ITAL) prevent (END ITAL) bad news from happening in the first place. You notice when there is a need and serve it before things get out of hand. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 20). Your talent opens possibilities for you that do not exist for others. You’ll use your privileged position to promote good will and create smart solutions to common problems. Your commute changes for the better in September, and more lifestyle upgrades will follow. October and December bring financial bonuses. Capricorn and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 3, 33, 28 and 13.

Just be careful not to coddle them too much, or they will turn soft, expecting you to go all out all of the time. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You like to know that your presence matters. However, if your energy is too overwhelming, people will feel intimidated, shut down around you and be too uptight to contribute their ideas. Strike a balance. CANCER (June 22-July 22). A burst of health, strength and vitality will have you feeling groovy. Confident and happy in your stride, heads will snap to check you out when you walk by. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Love and logic seldom go together. So there’s no sense in wondering “What was he thinking?” or “Why did she do that?” Instead, wonder “What was he feeling?” and “What’s the best response?” VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have the opportunity to ease someone’s mind, salve their hurt or soothe their pain. Seeing the opportunity (others won’t) and acting on it is what makes you a healer. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23).

Your heart is pure now, but if you continue to flirt, danger could eventually wear you down. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When life is not on track, don’t wait for the turning point.

Page 28 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, August 20, 2013


Dear Annie: Three years ago, my mother was diagnosed with lung cancer and then a brain tumor. She has had numerous surgeries and treatments. Mom is the youngest of five siblings. The whole time she has been fighting this disease, her siblings have been unsupportive. In three years, one uncle has visited twice and called twice. Another lives less than two miles away, but has stopped by for a total of one hour. His wife and kids have neither visited nor phoned. My aunt speaks to my mother about twice a year. She never visits. She also yells at Mom and is rude to her. She has managed to convince my 84-year-old grandmother that these arguments are my parents’ fault. Several years ago, this same aunt had cancer, and my mother was there for her all the time -- like family should be. I find it hurtful and disheartening that her siblings are so uncaring. They never offer to help, let alone offer words of comfort. Is this normal behavior? The only thing my mother has asked for is moral support from her family, and she has received none. My father, my brother and I feel only animosity toward these family members, knowing how much they have hurt our mother. I think we should forget about them and cut off contact. What do you say? -- Loving Daughter Dear Daughter: We don’t know why your aunts and uncles haven’t been more supportive. In some families, one person often becomes a “caregiver” by virtue of his or her personality. It sounds as if your mother is that person. It means her siblings do not know how to respond appropriately in caregiving situations because they never have had to do so. Before you decide to cut them off, please let your mother decide. She may prefer to forgive them and continue the relationships, although with a more limited set of expectations. Dear Annie: My niece was married at city hall nearly two

years ago. My wife and I attended the ceremony, and afterward, we went to lunch. Two weeks later, they had a small catered reception at his grandmother’s house. My wife and I attended and gave them a card with a check. Now they want to have their wedding blessed in a church. I think that’s great, except they are having another reception, this time at a banquet hall with all the bells and whistles. Since we already gave a card and a check at the first reception, are we obligated to give another? If so, how much? I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. -- Confused About the Etiquette Dear Confused: You aren’t giving a gift in honor of a reception. You are giving a wedding gift to the couple. Since you already have done so, you are under no obligation to present them with another. However, if you feel obligated to bring something to the latest reception, it could be a small gift with sentiment attached, such as a framed photograph of the couple. Dear Annie: I feel compelled to write to “Can’t Believe Adults Act This Way,” whose daughter is being bullied by other teachers at her school. You suggested the main bully craves power and control, thinks the daughter is a threat and could be insecure. This is happening to me right now. I am a veteran teacher of 29 years. The principal is indeed as you described. She has wanted me gone for the past four years and has made outrageous accusations that I have had to defend with the union. I realized, also, that this was draining my energy to teach. My advice for this first-year teacher is to look for a new job where she feels comfortable and can teach and do what she is trained for and not waste her energy on bullies. She sounds like a promising teacher who needs to be planted in fertile soil where she can flourish. -- Looking for Something Better

Photographers to exhibit at Vynn Art Gallery

MEREDITH — Tamworth photographers Mike Porter and Susan Brewer will display their works at the VynnArt Gallery located at 30 Main Street in Meredith, on Saturday, Aug. 24 and Sunday, Aug. 25. A meet the artists reception will be held on Saturday from 2-5 p.m. The show will include some of their favorite works and will feature several large pieces printed on aluminum that give the photographs wonderful luminosity and an almost three dimensional appearance. It was photography that brought the pair together. Susan was the owner of a Cafe in Marblehead, MA and showcased local art on the Café walls, changing the work out on a monthly basis. Mike, a captain at the Marblehead Fire Department, had his first show at the Café and he was an inspiration for Susan to get reacquainted with the camera, and better acquainted with him. The couple splits their time between Tamworth and Marblehead and are grateful to call two areas so rich in natural beauty, home. They have both since won multiple awards for their work. Their photos include enticing images of landscapes and wildlife, shot using High Dynamic Range (HDR) Photography as well as more traditional methods.
