Others, including two members of the delegation — Representatives Jane Cormier of Alton and Richard Burchell of Gilmanton — immediately sent letters to this newspaper reproaching Philpot. In his statement, Glassman said that he was “appalled” to read Philpot’s remarks, see PHILPOt page 12

Obama says Trayvon ‘could have been me 35 years ago’ WASHINGTON (AP) — In a rare and public reflection on race, President Barack Obama called on the nation Friday to do some soul searching over the death of Trayvon Martin and the acquittal of his shooter, saying the slain black teenager “could have been me 35 years ago.” Empathizing with the pain of many black Americans, Obama said the case conjured up a hard history of racial injustice “that doesn’t go away.” Obama’s personal comments, in a surprise appearance in the White House press room, marked his most extensive discussion of race as president. For Obama, who has written about his own struggles with racial identity but often has shied away from the subject in office, the speech signaled an unusual embrace of his standing as the nation’s first black

Newly release photos shed light on end of manhunt for Tsarnaev

BOSTON (AP) — After a week of chaos, the suspect in the deadly Boston Marathon bombings emerged from his hiding spot bloodied and seemingly exhausted — the red dot of a sniper’s rifle lighting his forehead. Photos of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev released by a state police officer give a long-awaited glimpse into the end of an episode that kept the city and its suburbs on edge. The images, the first of Tsarnaev from that night in April, were released to Boston Magazine on Thursday by a state police photographer angry about a Rolling Stone cover shot of Tsarnaev and hoping to counter what he said was the music magazine’s glamorization of the terror suspect. The release was unauthorized, and Sgt. Sean Murphy faces an internal investigation and possible suspension. Murphy’s 14 photos show the 19-year-old Tsarnaev emerging from his hiding spot in a drydocked boat in Watertown, just west of Boston, his right hand up in surrender in one, his head buried in his arms in another. In every picture of Tsarnaev, the red dot of a sniper’s rifle sight is trained on his head. To Watertown resident Anna Lanzo, the photos show a teen, as weary as he appears, still capable of standing, running and doing the damage she worried he’d do when she was trapped in her house three months ago while her neighborhood was on lockdown. see MANHUNT page 3 Meredith Cinema Meredith Shopping Ctr. • 279-7836 Friday (7/19) - Thursday (7-25)

president and the longing of many African-Americans for him to give voice to their experiences. “When you think about why, in the African- American community at least, there’s a lot of pain around what happened here, I think it’s important to recognize that the African- American community is looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that doesn’t go away,” Obama said during his 20-minute remarks. A Florida jury last week acquitted George Zimmerman of all charges in the February 2012 shooting of Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old. The verdict was cheered by those who agreed that Zimmerman was acting in self-defense, while others protested the outcome, believing Zimmerman had targeted Martin because he was black.

Despite his emotional comments on the case, the president appeared to signal that the Justice Department was unlikely to file federal civil rights charges against Zimmerman. Traditionally, he said, “these are issues of state and local government,” and he warned that the public should have “clear expectations.” Following the verdict, some civil rights leaders called on Obama to lead a national conversation on race. But the president has resisted. Before Friday, his only comment on the verdict had been a written statement in which he called Martin’s death a tragedy and appealed for calm. But throughout the week, the president kept track of the national response to the verdict, particularly see OBAMA page 9

CONCORD (AP) — A mediator will join contract negotiations between New Hampshire and the State Employees’ Association, which are at an impasse after six months, with the greatest differences over wages and a new deductible in the health care plan. Union President Diana Lacey said bringing in a mediator would introduce a new perspective into the negotiations. “Sometimes a neutral perspective is very helpful,” she said. Matt Newland, state manager of employee relations, said a meeting between the parties is scheduled for mid-August. New Hampshire announced tentative, two-year agreements last month with the state’s four labor

unions representing 10,000 workers. The Teamsters Local 633 and New England Police Benevolent Association have since ratified contracts with the state. The New Hampshire Troopers Association, which represents about 300 workers, continues to negotiate with the state, but talks with the SEA reached an impasse this week. The SEA is the largest union, representing about 7,500 workers. SEA’s bargaining team asked union leaders after last month’s announcement of a tentative agreement to decide whether to hold a ratification vote by members, and the leaders instead told the negotiators to return to the table and try for a better deal. The tentative agreement rejected by SEA leadsee SEA page 3

LAC-MEGANTIC, Quebec (AP) — Insufficient brake force was applied before an oil train came barreling out of nowhere in the middle of the night and slammed into a small town in Quebec, killing 47 people, officials said Friday. Donald Ross, chief investigator for the Transportation Safety Board of Canada, said the insufficient brake force could have been due to mechanical problems with the handbrakes, or a problem with the way someone applied them. “The train got out of control because it wasn’t fully immobilized,” said Transportation Safety Board

investigator Ed Belkaloul. “The number of brakes (applied) is important, but the quality of the braking is also important.” An unattended Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Railway train was parked overnight on a rail line before it came loose, hurtling down a seven-mile (11-kilometer) incline on Jan. 6. The train derailed and ignited in LacMegantic, near the Maine border. All but one of its 73 cars was carrying crude oil, and at least five exploded, setting off massive explosions that devastated the small lakeside town of 6,000 people. see TRAIN page 14

HANHUNT from preceding page “I was petrified,” said Lanzo, 70, who recalled police swarming her yard, searching under her car and motioning her to get back whenever she approached her windows while they searched for Tsarnaev. Watertown town Councilor Cecilia Lenk saw nothing she didn’t expect in the pictures of Tsarnaev, but it doesn’t mean the photos had no effect. Starting with the Rolling Stone cover, the pictures have revived memories of a terrifying time for Watertown

residents, she said. “It’s kind of like you’re not able to get away from it,” Lenk said. Tsarnaev has pleaded not guilty to numerous charges related to the April 15 bombing, which killed 3 and injured more than 260 others near the marathon’s finish line. He was captured April 19 after escaping during a shootout with police in Watertown the night before, running over his older brother and fellow suspect,

mentation of the deductible a year so workers could save money from their raises to pay it. “The timing is off. There’s not enough of a raise,” she said. The state offered the four unions wage increases of 1.5 percent on July 1; 2.25 percent on July 1, 2014; and 2.25 percent on Jan. 1, 2015. State employees had not received an increase in 4½ years. About 2,000 workers, including those covered by the two ratified contracts, have begun receiving the wage increase. The agreements also proposed modifying sick leave provisions to discourage abuse of short-term absences. The $38 million to pay for the agreements was included in the state budget adopted last month for the two years that began July 1. Lacey and Newland both said they are trying to negotiate an agreement that costs the same amount as was funded in the budget. Lacey said the SEA proposed two raises instead of three that would take effect with enough time to help offset the cost of the deductible. She said sick leave proposal was off the table but the state is insisting on its health and wage package. Newland would not comment on whether the sick leave proposal had been withdrawn.

ers called for a new health care deductible, $500 for individuals and $750 for families, to start in January. It would increase to $1,000 for families in 2015. Newland said the deductible applies to a few defined services such as hospitalization and imaging, and most employees would not be affected. He said the state’s proposal to the four unions also contains financial offsets to the $500 deductible. The state proposes continuing a program in place now that provides state workers with $200 toward deductibles, glasses and other out-of-pocket expenses for completing an annual health risk appraisal form. It also implements a voluntary wellness program where workers can qualify for up to $300 in cash payments for getting a physical, flu shot and biometric or other screenings. “The $200 has been in place for several years. People are already using that. It’s not new money,” said Lacey. She said the $300 is taxable and workers would receive closer to $260. She also said hospital stays and a series of other medical services cannot be waived. Lacey said the union wants to restructure the time when the deductible and wage increases take effect. She said the union proposed delaying imple-

Tamerlan Tsarnaev, in the process. Tamerlan Tsarnaev died following the shootout. Watertown was in lockdown the next day as thousands of law enforcement officers, in helmets and Humvees, descended for a door-to-door search for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. He was captured, and caught on film by Murphy, after the lockdown was lifted and a homeowner noticed streaks of blood on his boat. The Rolling Stone cover story on Tsarnaev was released online this week, a few days after his public court appearance. Critics blasted the magazine, saying the cover shot of Tsarnaev was reminiscent of the magazine’s flattering portrayals or rock legends such as Jim Morrison. Rolling Stone says the story was part of its commitment to “serious and thoughtful coverage” of important political and cultural issues. Murphy, in his statement to Boston Magazine, said his photos show “the face of evil” and “the real Boston bomber, not someone fluffed and buffed for the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.” Murphy has not returned calls from The Associated Press. No one answered the door Friday at the blue cottage along the coast in Biddeford, Maine, where neighbors said he spends weekends. Christina DiIorio-Sterling, a spokeswoman for U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz, who is prosecuting the marathon bombing case, called Murphy’s release of the photos “completely unacceptable.” Defense attorney Peter Elikann, who’s not involved in the case, said that Tsarnaev’s attorney could try to use Murphy’s statement to try to show the investigation was biased against her client. “If he expressed that he released those because of anger or because of hatred, that’s never good to do in a criminal investigation,” Elikann said.

Jim Hightower

Helping hands are helping themselves The word “help” is so uplifting, conveying our best humanitarian values. How odd, then, to see it used in this New York Times headline: “Banks’ Lobbyists Help in Drafting Financial Bills.” I’ll bet they did! We all know how altruistic, beneficent and kindhearted Wall Street lobbyists are — when it comes to helping themselves, that is. The article explains that a small army of high-dollar influence-peddlers are not merely asking our lawmakers to free big banks from pesky rules that limit their reckless greed, but instead the lobbyists are helping to write the laws themselves. There’s that word again. In this case, “helping to write” is a euphemism for “dictating” the language, turning the members of Congress into obedient stenographers. For example, one key bill that zipped out of the House finance committee in May is essentially a do-it-yourself lawmaking product of Citigroup. In a concise 85 lines, it exempts big chunks of dangerously high-risk Wall Street speculation from any bothersome regulation. More than 70 of those 85 lines were penned by Citigroup lobbyists with “help” from other banks. The committee even copied two key paragraphs word for word from the language that Citigroup handed to the members. This group of DIY bill-writers insists that nothing is amiss here — we’re not trying to gut the Wall Street reform package passed just three years ago, they say, we’re simply trying to reach “a compromise.” I was born at night, but it wasn’t last night! The 2010 reforms were a compromise, and the American people would like to see them made much tougher, not weaker. Wall Street, of course, feels entitled to snake inside, assume the role of lawmaker and pervert the public will. As one lobbyist puts it, “We will provide input if we see a bill we have interest in.” After all, they just want to help. But why are our elected solons so willing to buddy up with such self-serving helpers? Here’s one member of Congress who finds the whole relationship distressing: “It’s appalling,” said Rep. Jim Himes,

D-Conn., talking about the money that special interests stuff in the pockets of lawmakers. “It’s disgusting ... and it opens the possibility of conflicts of interest and corruption,” he added. So, naturally, he promptly joined the disgusting system that has turned our Capitol into a wide-open bazaar for buying and selling legislative favors. “It’s unfortunately the world we live in,” the Connecticut Democrat shrugged. Even though Himes is only in his third term, he’s become an aggressive trader in this bazaar, heading up fundraising for his fellow Democrats in the U.S. House. Why him? One, as a member of the committee that oversees Wall Street, he can attract campaign cash like honey attracts flies — especially when big banks are lobbying furiously to get exemptions from legislation that restricts some of their destructive profiteering. Two, Himes has proven to be a trusted ally of the wheeler-dealer bankers, supporting their dereg bills. And three, he is one of them, having been made a millionaire as a Goldman Sachs banker. Republicans are totally in Wall Street’s pocket, but Democrats are sinking into it, too. With the admirable exception of Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., and a handful of other Dems who stood with consumers, most Democrats on the committee joined every Republican member in May to do the bank lobby’s bidding. Six days later, Himes’ fundraising operation arranged for the seven freshmen Democrats on the committee, each of whom had stood with the bankers, to trek up to the heights of Wall Street for a personal bonding session with the CEOs of Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan Chase. Thus are forged the ties that bind. Hey, Democrats, don’t just deplore this corrupt system, stand with us to overthrow it. To learn how, go to (Jim Hightower has been called American’s most popular populist. The radio commentator and former Texas Commissioner of Agriculture is author of seven books, including “There’s Nothing In the Middle of Road but Yellow Stripes and Dead Armadillos”.

Laconia City Council must be all right-wing fanatics, too To The Daily Sun, Hokum: 1.) something purportedly impressive or legitimate but actually untrue or insincere; 2.) a stock technique for eliciting a desired response from an audience. Philpot should be ashamed but seems too arrogant to understand the limitations of his perspective (see July 19 article in the LDS). Incidentally,

LETTERS If you find yourself in trouble in water, try to conserve energy To The Daily Sun, I am passing along some critical information that just might help someone avoid adding to the growing list of local drowning accidents. I gathered this information over 20 years ago while serving as the Safety Officer for the N.H. Wing of The Civil Air Patrol. At that time, I received several monthly national safety type information packages and presented some excerpts, from one of them, at one of our monthly meetings. Unfortunately, I no longer have the original documents so I will just summarize the information, as I remember it, here. Basically, unless a medical problem, or an incapacitating injury leads to the drowning, physical exhaustion ALWAYS precedes it. This is accelerated by hypothermia, fear, panic and the struggle to stay afloat. Now here is the good part to practice and remember if needed. You must conserve as much energy as possible to extend the time for your rescue. One way to do this is to get comfortable doing what we used to call the “dead man’s float”. I know that doesn’t sound too

good, but it is merely just relaxing and hanging suspended in the water with even your face under water. Raise your head and take a deep breath when needed and you will be surprised how long that you can do this. It will give you some time for help to arrive or if you are on your own, time to think of the best escape plan. If you must swim for shore, stop and rest this way before it is too late, then continue swimming. If you are in any kind of a current, go with it and angle toward land. My father made me practice this and obviously the best time to learn it is before you actually need it. Try it, it just might save the old bacon some day. Salt water is a whole ‘nother ballgame and I don’t know enough about it . My only advice is that unless you are a very strong swimmer and are aware of the effect of cold water on your body, be like me and keep your feet planted on the bottom while playing in the surf. (Usually for a very short time.) Stay safe and enjoy our lakes and streams. Donald Lockwood Laconia

Painting people you don’t agree with as ‘bad’ is politics at its worst To The Daily Sun, As an elected official, I am totally dismayed to read Commissioner Philpot’s latest diatribe against the majority in the Belknap County Delegation. “These are bad people looking to do bad things...”. Wow. What a value judgement! Speaking for myself, I can tell you I DO NOT “want to kill government, want government to go away.” Rather, I want government to be accountable to the people, open and transparent, and not the bloated abomination it has turned into. Whether it is about government spying, IRS scandals, birthing hopeless deficits which take away the future of our youth, then yes, I am not about BIG CORRUPT government. I believe in small, accountable government. Does this make me “bad”? I don’t think so. What is “bad” (for lack of a better word) is power-mongering in the extreme. Arrogance is pretty “bad” as

well. Divisiveness is “bad” on my list, too. And all three of these words are what I think of when I read Commissioner Philpot’s “bad” statement. The Belknap County Delegation majority level funded our current budget. No jobs were cut. The majority is seeking definition of what NH RSA 24:14 really means so future delegations know how to proceed with the budget process. The majority in this delegation seeks to support the taxpayers of Belknap County whenever spending seems inappropriate, especially in these difficult times. Everyone may not agree with these ideals, and that is fine. But, trying to paint people who do not agree as “bad” is politics of the worse sort. One only has to wonder why Commissioner Philpot would resort to it. Rep. Jane Cormier Belknap District 8 Alton, Barnstead, and Gilmanton

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, July 20, 2013 — Page 5



Why would anyone call an elected official a ‘bad’ person? To The Daily Sun, As a lifelong Republican, I am personally offended by the headline in today’s Laconia Daily Sun. I think most readers would agree with me that there are few “bad people” in this world. Terrorists are bad people; no one in either our Republican delegation or Democrat delegation is a “bad person”. Nor are any of our commissioners “bad people”. I cannot imagine why anyone could be so unprofessional as to call any elected official a “bad person”. Even if the quote is printed in an article, I cannot imagine putting it as a headline in a paper. The issue of the jail is a local issue; it’s not about national politics. During my professional career and family life, I have faced discrimination numerous times. In none of those cases, have I ever been called a “bad person”; nor have I ever even thought of calling those who were discriminating against me “bad people”. It would be unprofessional, polarizing, and eliminate any possibility of joint problem solving. Professionally, I was a systems designer and project manager in information technology working in major insurance corporations starting in the early ‘70s. When I married, my parking space was eliminated along with my health insurance because “my husband had them”. I was given a lower raise because “it was not right that I made more than my husband”. I was fired due to “illness of pregnancy”. In all cases, I was discriminated against merely because I was a woman. I lived with discrimination against our daughter due to her physical disability. She was not allowed to participate in public school activities because of her seizures caused by a vaccine when she was 11. We were openly told that she was not welcome in friends’ homes because their parents were afraid “she was contagious”. Her math teacher told her in front of the class that “her brain was not properly developed”. Our daughter attended a private high school so that she could participate in all school activities. By understanding her disability, her classmates worked with her as a team to anticipate and solve issues before they arose. They developed solutions together so that she became captain of her swim team and traveled to Hawaii on a school trip. Likewise, in college, her professors and friends worked with her to solve problems for transportation to internships and study abroad. In all the situations where I experienced discrimination, I analyzed the situation as I would any problem as an analyst and project manager. In my career, I worked within the system to make changes by prototyping and implementing remote work and flexible work weeks so that I could balance my daughter’s needs with my job requirements. As a mother, I worked with my daughter to be open about her disability and to work for solutions to lead a normal life. In every case, above all, I demonstrated professionalism by example. I have been an active Republican for 45 years volunteering in several states over that time. In all those years, I have never seen the personal nature of attacks that I have seen recently,

especially here in New Hampshire. This is the first time that I truly feel that I, along with all Republicans, am being discriminated against because I am a Republican. Fifty years ago, I worked with my dad to build our house in Barnstead. From the time I dug the first hole and mixed cement for support; my heart was in New Hampshire and always will be. Politically, I have defended the 1st in the nation primary and touted the New Hampshire model in many other states explaining the active participation in primaries and the volunteer legislature. If we read the media carefully, their intent is a one party system. I doubt anyone in New Hampshire desires us to lose not only the checks and balances of two parties, but the creativity of different perspectives. I believe in our elective process. In primaries, I actively support candidates who align most closely with my stance on issues. However, even if “my” candidates do not prevail in the primary, in the general election, I actively support those Republican candidates who do prevail in the primary. While I may not have supported some members of the Republican Belknap delegation during the primary, I did support all of them during the general election. To call any of them a “bad person” is to call everyone who supported them a “bad person”. Right now, they are attempting to do their job representing the citizens of Belknap County. In business, my project team may have had differences of opinion, but we discussed them and worked to a common solution which we then presented to our customers. I believe in the 80/20 rule; it is idealistic to believe that we will agree 100 percnet with anyone on all issues. Above all, I strongly believe in being fiscally conservative. The current issue of the jail has to do with the ability to live within our means as every family in Belknap County must do. It is an insult to the taxpayers of Belknap County to divert attention from the real problem of the jail to a political play in the media for the next election cycle. When I worked with customers on systems solutions, my team’s first step was to understand what they already had and then work with them to define the requirements for what they needed. Working with the customer, we then ranked those requirements into needs vs. nice-to-haves. In developing solutions for those requirements, we presented well-defined options along with a well-defined cost-benefit analysis and pros and cons for each option. We then worked with the customers to understand each option and to select the one that most closely fit their needs and their pocketbook. During implementation, we tracked closely to the budget defined from the cost-benefit analysis. This is common problem solving methodology. As a taxpayer, I would like to see all options for the jail with thoroughly defined cost/benefit and pros/cons for each. I believe that there was a range in cost initially presented of about $23 million. Rather than unprofessional name-calling, it’s time for the commissioners to go back and present a professional set of options to the taxpayers of Belknap County, who are the customers.

To The Daily Sun, I read a letter to the editor this morning from Bernadette Loesch. You make some good points Bernadette, and I am sure there are other people who are thinking the same way. A sound investment is good business. Unfortunately, the convention has not seen the facility and obviously do not care about lawsuits. Last May, Superintendant Dan Ward and Commissioner Steve Nedeau came before the Meredith Selectboard with a presentation on a criminal justice system assessment. Mr. Ward, I would consider an expert at his job, handed out a report titled “Criminal Justice Master Plan.” This 165 page report prepared by David Bennett should be read by all public officials in Belknap County.

A story for people still pointing a finger at George Zimmerman To The Daily Sun, After reading letters from people who are unhappy with the verdict in the George Zimmerman Trial, it seems to me that people are, well let me give you an example from my childhood to get the feel of it. When I was in the 6th grade we were coming home from school one December day after performing our Nativity play. We had them in public school back then. I was a shepherd in the play, wearing a chair cover for a shepherd’s robe and having a mop pole for a shepherd’s staff. After getting off the school bus my friend and fellow 6th grader Rick took my mop pole from me and threw it over the snowbank into the yard on the corner, which was our bus stop, and he refused to retrieve it. So I challenged Rick to a fight. Rick wanted to change cloths before the fight, so we went to his house. When he came out of his house after changing the

fight proceeded. We wrestled around in the snow for a while and ended up in Rick’s garage with me pinned against the wall staring at Rick’s fist cocked and ready to let me have it in the kisser. A second or so goes by and Rick still hasn’t punched me. At this point Ricks older brother comes out of the kitchen door, it was an attached garage, and say’s,”hit em Ricky, hit em” and Rick says, “I can’t, my hands are cold” (from rolling around in the snow). Well, more seconds went by and I wiggled myself free. I got Rick in a head lock. I was a fairly strong kid. Rick started crying, gave up and I won the fight. Which worked out for both of us, for we were able to become good friends and had many high adventures thereafter. The fight was only to gain Ricks respect. But now to the point of my writing. There was a girl on the school bus, the prettiest girl on the bus. see next page

are two highlights in this report. Programs such as cognitive behavioral treatment, a non-clinical form of educating and “New Direction Program” designed to create marketable skills are explained in detail in this report. On a separate note, as I have already stated the current facility is unsanitary, unsafe and unacceptable for the county employees and those incarcerated there. Anyone of a sane mind who had a tour would agree. So I will say again to the entire convention, When are you planning on having a tour of the Belknap County Correctional facility? “Are you afraid of the answers?” I find it disappointing that the taxpayers have voted for this kind of conduct. Maybe things will be different next year. Carla Horne Meredith

LETTERS Obama’s gross dishonesty is not indicative of blacks, it’s just him To The Daily Sun, The problem (or advantage) of being black: Some of our top leaders are black. Starting with our president, Obama, who has, used his father’s race as a way to be one of the richest men in the USA, taking over the government as if he is already THE DICTATOR! Maybe many react to his excesses and gross dishonesty as if that is a problem with blacks, but, we know he is a total exception to the norm. I have known many brilliant, honest, and very helpful blacks, starting with the valedictorian of my high school class, also from a poor family. While we played after school, he worked to support his family, helped others with their school work, taught Sunday school, and excelled in sports! And like me, went to Rutgers University, where he was nice to let me ace engineering as he excelled in premedical studies! We must first look at the history of blacks in America. Many are here as a result of the years of slavery. The blacks in Africa who were chosen for slaves were the easy going nice people. The people in the USA who wanted and could afford slaves were the educated successful ones. Thus slaves were exposed to good education, or good knowledge from observation. I recall in grade school, as the skinny kid, I got picked on by the cowardly bullies: They were the weakminded fools, who formed gangs to protect their weakness. I put up with a lot of that bullying, until a big, black kid, came up to me on the playground,

and for no apparent reason started a “fight”, in which I quickly found myself on top, the winner, with a new good friend! No one picked on me anymore! Shows exceptional kindness and brilliance about behavior! Gangs are basically a bunch of cowards. As I’ve observed it, it is very dangerous to be surrounded by a gang of whites, always safe with a gang of blacks, who will protect anyone! Blacks seem to dominate in sports, with the great combination of exceptional intelligence and strength. During WWII black pilots formed the most outstanding fighter squadron to protect bombers, with record of never losing a bomber! As a pilot since I was 13, with too many airplanes, I’m well aware how extremely difficult their record was: takes exceptional intelligence, skill, and strength! I never could have done that! I much prefer the calm and beauty of soaring, playing the thermals and slope lift from hills, much like three dimensional sailing! I really wonder why we don’t see blacks domineering in sailing. Somehow they just aren’t involved. Much sailing, such as racing catamarans, would match their exceptional strength, intelligence, and intuition. Where are they? I’d love to get them into the sail training program at Fay’s Boat yard, or as a start, sailing with me, at 80 years old almost a has been for racing, but would love to teach newcomers! Jack Stephenson Gilford

Newfound Lake would be seen as energy corridor for State of N.H. To The Daily Sun, More than nine months have passed since the international energy giants first revealed their plans to build a series of massive wind turbine farms around Newfound Lake and the Mount Cardigan area. I can assure you the Wild Meadows Wind Farm project is still on the table. Secondary roads have been cleared, individual turbine sites have been cleared and staked for each turbine location site. So, while many believe that this project is still in discussion stages, I know it is already in motion. We’re not stupid. We know what land clearings look like and we also know it’s not free. While controversy continues in Concord about the fate of our community, I ask myself how can this be happening without community approval? I can’t give you a timetable for their ground-breaking ribbon-cutting ceremonies because they haven’t even filed for a permit yet. You have to laugh at this type of from preceding page She apparently like Rick better than me. The next day she came up to me and said, “you’re a dirty fighter. You cheated. You got Rick’s hands cold so he couldn’t fight.” Her view was less then unbiased and it reminds me of those still pointing the finger at George Zimmerman. The question is, do we want our justice to be that? John Demakowski Franklin

arrogance, otherwise it will eat you up. If these projects do get the green light, a flurry of activity will start in the region. Once completed, the rural landscape traditionally associated with forests will be dotted by tall, white towers with massive tripleblades, equipped with blinking red lights and many, many power lines. Details are sketchy at best for us, but rest assured developers are holding the master playbook in hand. Consulting firms have been contracted in helping developers navigate through the permitting process, a college professor is starting up a study with two of her students to tell us how we should feel and lawyers are lobbying in Concord to get’er done. I laugh because this community is so furious and stand united against these next three developments — not for their aesthetics but for what it will do to our watersheds, rivers, streams and lake. Having five renewable energy plants in the area already... and adding three additional wind farms to this area will change us for decades to come. Newfound Lake will be seen as an energy corridor for the State of New Hampshire. I can assure you that other Lakes Regions are closely watching us but not helping us. It’s time to get some skin in the game and help a neighbor out. We’d do the same for you! Ray Cunningham Bridgewater

To The Daily Sun, With the debate on guns and gun control running hot here in the United States, we have something to learn from this saga. On July 22, 2011, Anders Breivik, a 32-year-old Norwegian, went on a shooting rampage on Utøya, an island in a fjord some 24 miles northwest of Oslo. Camped on the island in an annual youth encampment were some 600 young people, mostly teens. The carnage was 69 killed and 33 wounded by gunfire plus many more injured in the panic-driven scramble by the trapped teens to avoid being shot. Brevik had earlier set off a powerful 2100 pound car bomb in the government quarter of Oslo, killing 8 and injuring 209. The details of all this are well known as Breivik had been forthcoming on the details involved both before and during his trial. His motives are fully explained in a 1,500-page political manifesto he wrote and e-mailed to hundreds of people prior to the event. An hour-and-a-half after the bombing, Breivik, dressed as a police officer and armed with a semiautomatic rifle and pistol plus a bag full of loaded magazines for his weapons, boarded a small ferry for the short 600 meter crossing from the mainland to the 26-acre wooded island. He attempted to convince Monica Boesei, the camp manager, that he was there to ensure that the campers were secure in the wake of the Oslo bombing. Boesei, however, was suspicious and walked away to summon the camp security guard, off-duty police officer Trond Berntsen. Breivik followed her close behind. Berntsen, with his 10-yearold son beside him, saw them coming and knew right away from his many years as a police officer that this scene was wrong — he must have, because he practically threw his son into the bushes to get him out of the way (this saved his son’s life). As Berntsen confronted the armed intruder, Breivik shot him in the head and then gunned down a fleeing Monica Boesei. Breivik then shot both twice in the head. Here we come to the lesson of this letter. Trond Berntsen was NOT ARMED. There were ZERO guns on the isolated island except for those in the hands of the perpetrator. You anti-gun folks that want to ban all guns and prevent them from being anywhere near children should like this idea. Some 600 young people in camp, almost all of

them teens, were WITHOUT ARMED PROTECTION. But I wonder why our own president and vice president have an army of hired guns to protect them and their families, but openly campaign to restrict “We the People” from protecting ourselves and our families. Berntsen, being an off-duty police officer, in this instance was not allowed to have a gun. So here we have a “gun free zone” so popular with anti-gun supporters. Most police officers in Norway at that time worked unarmed, carrying weapons only with permission in special circumstances. Officers in police cars were allowed unloaded weapons with ammunition accessible, but in locked boxes. In my opinion, this is what should have and could have happened on Utøya. Berntsen should have been allowed to be armed. He was an experienced police officer who knew how to handle firearms and who instinctively sensed the danger and would have confronted Breivik WEAPON against WEAPON. This was the ONLY chance that could have saved all the innocent lives lost on the island. If an armed Berntsen could have stopped Breivik at this point, NOT ONE of the young people on that island would have perished. NOT ONE. In fact, I believe there should have been MORE than one ARMED security guard on that island. As it was, Anders Breivik spent the next hour-and-a-half unmolested methodically gunning down nearly everyone he could find, even shooting at those attempting to flee by swimming. In my opinion, it was a disgrace not to have armed protection for these young people and a disgrace for civil authority to take so long to get together armed intervention. What was it that finally stopped Anders Breivik? When an officer finally showed up with a GUN, he lay down his arms and surrendered. Breivik had enough ammunition and the declared and admitted resolve to have killed everyone. The 2012 annual youth encampment was subsequently cancelled, but the camp was resumed this July at another site on land along the same fjord. But this time the youth were protected by armed police patrols. Since gun control is such a sensitive subject now, I expect this letter to bring forth both support and opposition from the right and the left, respectively. Bring it on. George E. Brunstad Meredith

Mr. Philpot owes the Belknap House Delegation one huge apology To The Daily Sun, Dear Mr. Philpot: What a disgraceful display of arrogance in the article on the front page of The Daily Sun describing the Belknap County Delegation as “bad people looking to do bad things”! You have gone too far with the rhetoric by attempting to smear the good names of people who have been tasked with working towards a balanced budget for the county. In case you haven’t been in the “real world” lately, look around you and you’ll see all of the people in

our county struggling to get by while you sit with the other commissioners attempting to find new and different ways to hike the budget and taxes all at the same time. From the sound of the article, it seems as if you may have stayed at the party too long and need to move over for someone who can think clearly and make informed decisions for the county. In the the meantime, you owe the delegation a HUGE apology. Elena Ball Gilmanton Iron Works

Lakes Region physician charged with writing pain killer Rx to himself under fake name By Michael Kitch CONCORD – A physician who lives in Center Harbor and practices medicine in Wolfeboro has been charged with one count of obtaining a prescription by fraud. Dr. Hasan Duymazlar, D.O. was criminally charged on July 17. An emergency hearing of the N.H. Board of Medicine was held on July 18 and he voluntarily surrendered his license to practice medicine yesterday. According to documents made available from the medical board, on July 8, 2013 an Ossipee pharmacist “A” told a N.H. State Police investigator that one of his customers, S. F., appeared to be getting a large quantity of oxycodone — an opiate used to kill pain. State police were told that when one of his pharmacists asked the patient for identification he didn’t provide it and left. Pharmacist “B” across the street said he had also refused to fill a prescription for S.F. who he thought resembled a different customer

named M.S. Police learned from pharmacist “B” that the prescription was issued by Duymazlar and when pharmacist “B” looked on Duymazlar’s (unnamed) hospital’s Website to see what he looked like, he recognized him as the man who just tried to fill the prescription. He printed the photo and showed it to pharmacist “A” who also allegedly recognized Duymazlar as S.F. Pharmacist “A” told police he had previously spoken to Duymazlar on the telephone, and telling police he had an English accent. He remembered S. F. has an English accent. The next day, police contacted the pharmacy where M.S. typically fills his prescriptions and were told he has an English accent, is in his early 50s, and speaks with an accent. Police also learned that on July 6 a man with reddish hair and an English accent had gone to a North Conway pharmacy and filled a prescription for 120

oxycodone pills. Police took the surveillance video of the transaction. Investigators contacted the Director of Risk Management at the (unnamed) hospital that employs Duymazlar who told them that several fraudulent prescriptions had been reported to them and all had been written on the hospital’s emergency room prescription paper. The administrator told them S.F. And M.S. were never patients in its emergency room. Police compared the video surveillance from the North Conway pharmacy to a known photo of Duymazlar. He was charged two days later. In November of 2009, Duymazlar entered into a settlement agreement with the Board of Medicine and agreed to to pay a $3,000 fine and take 36 hours of continuing medical education for prescribing controlled and non-controlled substances for his ailing father, for not documenting them, and for writing them in his nurse’s name.

OBAMA from page 2 by black Americans, and had discussions with his family, aides said. He was ready to address the verdict earlier this week during a round of interviews with Spanish language television stations, but the matter never came up. On Thursday, he told his senior advisers that he felt the country needed to hear from him — not in an interview or speech, just a frank discussion of his views and experiences. He spoke from the podium in the White House briefing room with no notes.

Even as the president urged the public to accept the verdict — “once the jury’s spoken, that’s how our system works” — he gave voice to the feelings held by many angered by the jury’s decisions. There’s a sense, Obama said, “that if a white male teen was involved in the same kind of scenario, that, from top to bottom, both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different.” The president spoke emotionally about Martin’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, saying they had displayed incredible grace and dignity. He

never mentioned the feelings of Zimmerman, whose brother has said the former defendant has faced numerous death threats. Martin’s parents released a statement following the remarks, saying, “President Obama sees himself in Trayvon and identifies with him. This is a beautiful tribute to our boy.” Zimmerman’s brother, Robert, also welcomed the president’s remarks, telling Fox News that “the American people need to have some time to digest see next page

from preceding page what really happened and to do that soul searching the president spoke of.” Despite that fact that Obama’s race has been central to the narrative of his political rise, he has rarely addressed the matter as a public figure. He last spoke about race in a substantial way as a presidential candidate in 2008 in addressing criticism over incendiary comments made by his former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright. In 2009, Obama stumbled when commenting on the arrest of a black Harvard professor in the professor’s home, saying the police “acted stupidly.” The president was forced to retract his statement, then held an awkward “beer summit” at the White House with the professor, Henry Louis Gates, and the white arresting officer. But on Friday, Obama spoke poignantly about the distrust that shadows many African-American men, saying that they can draw nervous stares on elevators and hear car locks clicking when they walk down the street. “There are very few African-American men in this country who haven’t had the experience of being followed when they were shopping in a department store,” he said. “That includes me.” In a departure from his typical caution on legal matters, the president also waded into the thorny debates on racial profiling and Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law, despite the fact that neither was formally raised during Zimmerman’s trial. Obama said it would be useful “to examine some state and local laws to see if they are designed in such a way that they may encourage the kinds of confrontation” that led to Martin’s death. He questioned whether a law that sends the message that someone who is armed “has the right to use those firearms even if there is a way for them to exit from a situation” really promotes peace and security. And he raised the provocative question of whether Martin himself, if he had been armed and of age, “could he have stood his ground on that sidewalk” and shot Zimmerman if he felt threatened when being followed. Seeking to inject a sense of hope into his otherwise somber remarks, the president said race relations in the United States have improved with each passing generation. He said his young daughters and their friends are “better than we were.” “We’re becoming a more perfect union,” he said. “Not a perfect union, but a more perfect union.”

Use words associated with Laconia Bike Week on a product you’re selling & you must now pay fee to rally promoters By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — This year, for the first time, “Laconia Motorcycle Week” became a registered trademark, conferring exclusive rights to prevent the unauthorized use of the trademark on its owner, the Laconia Motorcycle Week Association. Charlie St. Clair, executive director of the association, said that he was moved to register the trademark by the experience of Sturgis, South Dakota and Daytona, Florida, which host the other two largest U.S. rallies. After trademarking its event, Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, Inc. gained exclusive rights to “Sturgis” and “Black Hills” was ultimately able to prevent the Chamber of Commerce in Sturgis, Kentucky from using the phrase “Little Sturgis Rally and Races for Charity”. After a private company sought to register “Daytona Bike Week,” the Chamber of Commerce only prevailed in protecting the identity its rally it had taken since the 1930s after lengthy, costly litigation. “We didn’t want to go through anything like that,” St. Clair said. At the same time, St. Clair noted that while the local rally traces its origin to 1916, the event would not be what it has become without the efforts of the

association, for the registered trademark represents an asset. By registered the phrase “Laconia Motorcycle Week,” along with “Laconia Bike Week,” “Laconia Motorcycle Rally” and other similar phrases, as a trademark, the Laconia Motorcycle Week Association is entitled to license its use of those words on products and services. St. Clair said that some Rally Patrons, who pay $200 for the designation, are exempt from the licensing fee. The fee for wholesalers is $500 while the fees for retailers at the rally are $500 for one booth, $800 for two booths and $2,000 for three or more booths. Authorized products — T-shirts, patches, pins and the like — may be designated “licensed by the Laconia Motorcycle Week Association.” The fees collected by the association are over and above fees vendors must pay the city to set up shop in the city during Bike Week. The association, St. Clair explained, retains 70-percent of the revenue from licensing the trademark. Good Sports, Inc. of Manchester, Connecticut, whose subsidiary Hot Leathers is a major sponsor of the rally, receives 30-percent and in return assumes see next page

PHILPOT from page one adding that his reaction was “exacerbated by the fact that The Daily Sun’s headline at the top of page 1 was “Philpot takes aim at ‘bad people’ leading GOP delegation”. He noted that The Citizen, which also reported on Philpot’s remarks, headlined its story “County Democrats Looking to 2014 Elections.” “If Commissioner Philpot really feels that publicly uttering such a statement is going to help improve the strained relationship between the commissioners and the Republican delegation,” Glassman continued, “he undoubtedly doesn’t have a good understanding of human nature. Speaking on behalf of all Republicans in Belknap County, “ he said, “I want to see the commissioners and the entire delegation able to work together on such critical matters as the county budget and the county prison.” But, he closed, “to do so, at this juncture requires a public apology from Commissioner Philpot.” “I was very shocked to say the least,” Glassman said yesterday. He said that he sent an e-mail directly to Philpot urging him to apologize quickly and publicly to put the matter to rest. He copied his e-maill to Philpot’s col-

leagues, Commissioners John Thomas of Belmont and Steve Nedeau of Meredith — both Republicans — as well as to Representative Colette Worsman of Meredith, who chairs the convention, and Representative Frank Tilton of Laconia, the chairman of the Executive Committee of the convention. Philpot’s differences with the delegation began last December, shortly after the commission presented its budget, when the delegation claimed authority over the budget he believed was vested in the commission. The breach widened as the delegation prepared its budget, choosing to reject the commission’s suggestions for reducing the amount to be raised by property taxes in favor of stripping stripping employee benefits from the budget. After the commission shuffled money within the budget to fund the benefits, the dispute fell to the hands of attorneys. Meanwhile, the commissioners have spent much of the past year planning to replace the county jail with a new facility. The project has scant support among the delegation, some of whose members have challenged the process followed by the commission and openly rejected its findings and recommendations.

Sheriff’s Dept. makes drug bust in Alton ALTON — A Belknap County sheriff’s deputy seized several ounces of marijuana at 12:45 a.m. Thursday morning after he spoke with two people who were in a “potentially disabled” car on Main Street. Jeffrey G. Boucher, 27, of 12 Meadowview Drive in Newton, N.H. was charged with one misdemeanor count of possession of a controlled drug, one felony count of possession of a controlled drug, and one count of felony possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute. Boucher is the owner and was the driver of the car. Patrick E. Hanlon, 29, of 3 Patriot Drive in East Hampstead, N.H. was a passenger in the car and was charged with one misdemeanor count of pos-

session of marijuana. Deputy Justin Blanchette said he went up to the car when he saw it by the side of the street and detected evidence of marijuana. He said he discovered marijuana and psilocybin mushrooms in plain view. Police towed the car back to the Belknap County Sheriffs Department where it was impounded and searched after sheriff’s obtained a search warrant. Along with the marijuana,, police allegedly found a digital scale and packaging equipment. Both men were released on personal recognizance bail and given an August 22 appearance date at the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division. — Gail Ober

In the wake of a motion to compel the release of evidence and police affidavits — filed by Carter’s attorneys, Judge Jim Carroll of the 4th Circuit Court ruled the state “may” release the affidavits supporting Carter’s arrest on or after July 22. The affidavits will be given only to Carter’s defense team, however he ruled, at the state’s request, the defense can only discuss them with Carter and may not give him written copies. see next page

LACONIA — The Laconia Parks Commission was told this week that ‘’Hands Across the Water’’, an event designed to put Weirs Beach in the Guinness Book of World Records, is shaping up as a success. ‘’Things are coming together nicely,’’ Tom O’Brien, president of the New Hampshire Lakes Association, said of that organization’s plan to have more than 2,000 canoes and kayaks assemble and paddle together on Saturday, September 7 to form the world’s largest raft . ‘’We’re at the point where we’re going to be bringing in an event organizer for about six weeks,’’ O’Brien told the commission this week. He said that the canoes and kayaks will be launched from a number of shoreline access points, public and private, roughly between Awka Marina to the west and Pendleton Beach to the east. Once all of the boats are assembled the 3,000 to 4,000 participants will raise their paddles, and then join hands and raft together for at least 30 seconds. He said the event will break the current world from preceding page In addition, the affidavits will not be released to the public. Priscilla Carter’s and Timothy Carter’s bodies were found by Belmont Police on May 24 after an officer went to the home to check on the family’s well-being. A co-worker of Priscilla Carter had contacted police. He was charged with the homicides on July 10. Carter was arrested while driving his mother’s car on May 24, about three hours after his mother and brother were found by Belmont, Tilton, and New Hampshire State Police. He was initially charged with breach of bail and driving after suspension or revocation and held for about seven weeks, unable or unwilling to post $200 cash bail. — Gail Ober

record, set in upstate New York last summer, when 1,925 canoes and kayaks gathered at 4th Lake at Inlet, New York in a ‘’One Square Mile of Hope’’ fundraiser for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. A blast of the horn from the MS Mount Washington cruise ship will be sounded at 10 a.m. as the signal for the participants to paddle out to a designated area, 1,000 feet by 1,000 feet, just off from Weirs Beach, which will be surrounded by support boats.. ‘’We’ll be off the water by noon,’’ said O’Brien, who said the focus will then shift to Endicott Park at Weirs Beach, where there will be educational exhibits as well as live music. ‘’We’re not planning on having any food vendors. We want participants to do business with local establishments,’’ says O’Brien. Commissioners noted that the request for use of city facilities will go before the Laconia Special Events Committee and will be taken up by the City Council when it meets Monday night. O’Brien said he plans to update the Parks and Recreation Commission next month on the event. The commission was updated by Parks and Recreation Director Kevin Dunleavy on plans by Happy Tails Dog Park of Belmont for a dog park on cityowned property located between the end of Spruce Street and Growtth Road in the South End. The commission has given conceptual approval for the dog park plan, which has also been presented to

the Laconia Planning Board and will come before the City Council for discussion Monday night. ‘’At some point they’ll be going ahead with a fullfledged design,’’ said Dunleavy. He also updated the commission on plans for repairs to the Smith Track at Opechee Park. The City Council in its budget approved in June appropriated $300,000 for repairs to the track. Dunleavy said the contract for repairing the track has been awarded to Cape and Island Track and Tennis and that work will commence as soon as they are available, most likely in September. He said that work will be done in two phases, with the first one being removal of the rubberized material which currently covers the track. ‘’They want to look at the existing asphalt first. It may need an overlay before they can do the next phase.’’ said Dunleavy. He said that the new surface will be polyurethane based but still permeable, which will allow water to be dissipated. He said that the new surface will have an eightyear life expectancy, compared to five for the old surface and that by the time it has been resurfaced once that the underlying asphalt may need to be replaced 16 or 20 years down the road. The six-lane, 400 meter track was installed in 1998 and refurbished in 2001, 2005 and 2011. The track has been closed since last Spring.

TRAIN from page 2 A spokesman for the agency said it has had a closer look at 25 tanker cars since gaining access to the blast site two days ago — and has taken pictures and samples. The investigators said they are also analyzing the contents of the tanker cars that did not explode in the crash, looking for clues on why the crude oil in the other cars exploded so violently. The agency says the investigation has already resulted in two safety advisories urging a revision of the Canadian Rail Operating rule governing the securing of parked trains. It says the rule is not specific enough because it does not spell out how many handbrakes to apply for various weights and types of cargo. It also said that the standard, so-called “push-pull test” does not always accurately show whether the brakes have been adequately applied. “Rule 112 says you need a sufficient number of brakes. What does that mean, sufficient? Because if you have a locomotive of 120 rail cars, that is the problem, a train engineer has to decide how many of those elements to take into account and that is the problem,” said Belkaloul.

Advice To The Players kicks off season with Shakespeare Comedy Cabaret SANDWICH —Advice To The Players welcomes back Mark Woollett as director of Sandwich Summer Shakespeare; ATTP’s summer program of youth camps and professional performances. A veteran teacher, performer and director with the company since 2006, Woollett’s last stint in Sandwich was as director of the popular production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream two years ago. “It is always a pleasure to be back in Sandwich with Advice To The Players,” says Mark. “We have had some incredible summers out here doing Shakespeare with students and adults and I’m sure this year will be no exception.” First up is a student presentation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Sandwich Fairgrounds Stage. This one-hour performance is the culminaAndrew Codispoti as The Barker in Advice To The Players’ The Life and Death of that Dastardly Villain, Richard III, a.k.a The Bunch Back’d Toad. ‘Toad’ can be seen at Midsummer Mirth: A Shakespeare Comedy Cabaret taking place on Friday and Saturday evenings, July 26-27 and August 2-3, at 7:30 p.m. at the Sandwich Town Hall.

Next, Advice To The Players gets the humor ball rolling this season with Midsummer Mirth: A Shakespeare Comedy Cabaret; four evenings of food, drink and laughter at the Sandwich Town Hall. Midsummer Mirth is full of music and hilarity, culminating in a second act which has to be seen to be believed: The Life and Death of that Dastardly Villain, Richard III, a.k.a The Bunch Back’d Toad. ‘Toad’ is Woollett’s hilarious melodrama adaptation of Shakespeare’s Richard III, complete with audience cue signs (“Boo! Hiss!” and “Hurray!”), top hats, twirled mustaches, and innocents tied to the railroad tracks. The Comedy Cabaret is on Friday and Saturday evenings, July 26-27 and August 2-3, at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $10 at the door. The company’s mainstage production opens on August 9 and plays throughout Sandwich Old Home Week. Also directed by Woollett, Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare’s most mature comedies and combines sparkling wit with earnest clowns and an epic battle of the sexes. Much Ado just might be the world’s first romantic comedy with juvenile hijinks, broken hearts, and the playful and profound love affair of Beatrice and Benedick - Shakespeare’s couple-of-acertain-age, who are “too wise to woo peaceably”. Much Ado About Nothing will be presented at 2 p.m. on Friday, Saturday & Sunday, August 9, 10 & 11 and Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday, August 15, 16, 17 & 18 at the Sandwich Fairgrounds Stage. There will be an evening performance on Tuesday, August 13 at 7:30 pm at the Sandwich Town Hall. Tickets are $20 for adults, $10 for seniors and students and free for ages 12 and under.

Vegan potluck/BBQ planned at Black Swan Inn in Tilton on July 26 TILTON — Have you ever tried a barbecued burger...without the meat? Or potato salad made with a “mayonnaise” that’s egg and dairy-free? How about “ice cream” without the cream? It’s hard to imagine, isn’t it? But these are only some of the animal-free foods that will be offered at the vegan potluck/BBQ at the Black Swan Inn on Friday, July 26 from 5-7:30 p.m. Free and open to the public, attendees are asked to bring a vegan (no meat, fish, dairy, eggs, or honey) dish that serves 6-8 people. And if the thought of making a vegan dish seems too daunting, one can always bring a salad, juice, fruit ice/sorbet, or other plant-based food from the supermarket. “We’re receiving donations of veggie burgers, vegan ‘seafood’ and even vegan marshmallows from companies that want the public to sample their products,” said organizer Louisa Dell’Amico. “In addition, Café Indigo, a Concord-based vegan café, is donating their award-winning carrot cake.” Several other weekend activities that are free and open to the public include demonstrations on How to

Make Healthy Smoothies for Kids, and How to Make Sprouts on Saturday afternoon; hatha yoga classes and crystal singing bowls healing meditations on both Saturday and Sunday mornings; a silent auction (to benefit VINE farm animal sanctuary) with mostly veggie or animal-themed items as well as a gift basket from Bath & Body Works (which does not test their products on animals); and a demo on Sunday afternoon on How to Make Kale Chips. Plus, science-based DVDs on food and nutrition will be running throughout the weekend. Dr. Dann and the Off Mission Blues Band will be playing on Friday night also as a VINE fundraiser for a $5 admission fee. A few other activities with a fee attached are: a Vegan Victorian Tea on Saturday afternoon, a pizza party cooking class/sampling Saturday night, and a brunch on Sunday from 10 a.m.- 1 p.m. Reservations are required for all activities (even the free ones!). For a complete schedule of events, go to or call Louisa at 729-0248.

Meredith Kiwanis donates to Camp Spaulding The Meredith Kiwanis Club was pleased to have Ed Orlowski from Child and Family Services join the club’s weekly breakfast meeting at the Meredith Community Center. Orlowski spoke to the group about the summer camp program offered to New Hampshire children, Camp Spaulding, which is dedicated to low and moderate income families. The program adjusts the fee for camp to each family’s income on a sliding scale, so that a family may pay as little as $50 for their child to attend this $1,000 camp. Meredith Kiwanis is proud to be able to provide contribution of $1,000 to Camp Spaulding for the 2013 Summer Camp Season.

Lakes Region Real Estate Market Report / Roy Sanborn

Be cool We had 99 residential home sales in June in the 12 towns covered by this Lakes Region real estate market report. That’s pretty good! The average sales price came in at $329,928 with a median price point of $203,000. Once again, 50 percent of the sales were at or below $200,000. Last June there were 92 transactions with an average sales price of $251,218. For the first six months of 2013 there have been 447 sales at an average of $279,082 compared to 412 sales in the first half of 2012 at a slightly higher averages sales price of $291,352. That’s an 8 percent increase in total sales while the average price is down a little over 4 percent. The dog days of summer are upon us with seemingly unrelenting high temperatures and humidity. If you are out looking for a new home, probably one of the most noticeable and welcoming features upon entering the front door is if there is air condi-

tioning. On days like we have had this past week a.c. becomes a huge selling feature. That refreshing cold blast of air that greets you wasn’t always as common as it is today. You might not know it but the father of modern air conditioning was a man named Willis Carrier, or Willie to his friends. Despite the urban legend, air conditioning was not invented by LL Kool J. You might recognize the name Carrier as it is still one of the major manufacturers of a.c. units today. I think Willie also had something to do with Carrier pigeons, but that’s another story. Anyway, Willie was able to perfect the production of cold air by compressing gases, somehow inexplicably changing the heat generated in the process to ice cold air. It seems like only air conditioning repair technicians understand this process and thus a see next page

from preceding page whole service industry was created to fix a.c. units that invariably break down on the hottest day of the year. Here is a little history lesson on keeping cool. Man has always sought relief from the heat. In prehistoric times, the cavemen got out of the sweltering heat of the mid day sun by heading down to their cave. Everyone knows that getting below ground into some dark hole is a cool place to be. The Neanderthal’s gift to modern civilization, the man cave, is still a very cool place to go especially if it is in the basement. No a.c. is necessary down there, just a wide screen and a big old stuffed chair. Of course, an off shoot of the air conditioning technology, the kegerator, is a highly desirable component of staying cool in a man cave and something that adds immeasurable value to any home. Way back in the second century, the Chinese invented a seven bladed, rotary, hand cranked fan which produced cool breezes for the members of the royal palace. In ancient Rome, the Emperor had mountains of snow trucked in (by donkey cart) from the high mountaintops and placed in his courtyard to keep things cool. That’s not very cost effective way to do things but their government was not that much different than ours and, well, we know what happened there. Air conditioning was kind of lost in the dark ages. Probably the coolest place back then was in the dungeons, but I suspect no one went there seeking comfort from a blistering heat wave. Visitors to the dungeons might have stayed cool for a while but then lost their heads over something entirely different. For centuries, people have sought relief from the summer heat by going to cooler places like the mountains and the seacoast to take a dip in the water. The summer heat is actually responsible for the tourism industry here in the Lakes Region and elsewhere. Who doesn’t have fond memories of lying awake in bed in a small rustic cabin on a sweltering summer evening listening to the frogs chirp and praying for

a breeze? These days vacationers may be awake at night listening to a noisy a.c. unit but at least they are cool. Shortly after the invention of electricity, the electric fan was invented by Schulyer Wheeler in 1886 at the age of 22. His middle name was Skaats. (That’s true, look it up.) He obviously had too much time on his hands, but it was an all important step toward the development of the a.c. unit itself. Everyone knows you gotta have a fan inside that thing to get the cold air out. The first attempts at building air conditioning systems utilized toxic and flammable gases like propane and ammonia as the refrigerant. Unfortunately, when the machine malfunctioned and leaked, the escaping gases were fatal to the heretofore cool occupants of the building. This was the origin of the phrase “Guns don’t kill people, Air Conditioners do” . Even the unionized Fan Workers of America could not halt the steady march toward being cool 24/7. Willie Carrier’s invention of the first modern air conditioner in 1902 is his contribution to modern society and will never be forgotten as long as there are air conditioning repairmen. LL Kool J’s contribution to society; not so much. The first window air conditioner was invented by Robert Sherman of Lynn, Massachusetts in 1945. Who said nothing good ever came out of Lynn? So, if you are selling a home and have air conditioning make sure it is cranked up for each showing. If you don’t have a.c. and this weather doesn’t improve, go buy a window unit and be cool. Either that or try selling your home in December. Your choice... Please feel free to visit to learn more about the Lakes Region real estate market and comment on this article and others.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Whether your reasons for interacting with someone are good or bad doesn’t matter half as much as the fact that you have a reason at all. Give it up, and you’ll be free to make a stellar connection. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Often, it is the most accomplished person in the room who is also the most humble. This person is secure and doesn’t feel the need to bring on extra attention. You’ll fit the description today. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Compassion, modesty and frugality -- all virtues you aspire to even though you don’t think of that aspiration as barrels of fun. Today will challenge this notion, though, as you’ll be smiling and laughing and virtuous. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 20). You’ll be free with your emotions, and you’ll share your ideas and feelings with great enthusiasm. Motivating people is your thing in August, which makes your personal life run smoothly. In September, you’ll be well paid for this skill, too. You’ll be on the better side of a trade in October. Family keeps celebrating you all year! Leo and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 14, 11, 49 and 38.


HOROSCOPE ARIES (March 21-April 19). When off to the beach, don’t be in such a hurry that you forget the all-important item: sunscreen. Similarly, don’t let your overeager anticipation of an upcoming life event result in a painful burn. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Mysterious events and obscure motivations have you feeling as if you’re doing a jigsaw puzzle with a great many missing pieces. Step back for perspective, and the image you’re trying to piece together will become clear. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The reason people don’t eat breakfast by candlelight is that it’s too bright to see the flickering flames. A little darkness is good for ambiance, personalities and relationships. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Rumor has it that you need 17 facial muscles to smile and 43 to frown. Staring blankly takes no effort at all, which is possibly why it’s so unattractive. You’ll choose emotion and engagement because you don’t mind the work. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Sometimes you wonder, but there’s no need to doubt or fear: You are the right person for the position you’re in. How do you know? Because you’re in the position. Do your best, and it will be more than good enough. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). From the dark heart of the storm comes the lightning. That’s you: a powerful force at the center of the action. Just be careful of where you strike, because your energy is intense and will change things. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If what you do doesn’t work out, check your motives. You may realize that your needs are different from what you thought they were. With a better motive and the same action, you will find success. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There is reciprocity in life, though sometimes it comes around too slowly for your taste. That’s why you appreciate the unfolding of this day so much. Karma will be a fast boomerang. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The one who is arguing may sound impressive to those who don’t know that it doesn’t take any special understanding to argue a point. You’ll listen between the lines and understand what’s really going on.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Saturday, July 20, the 201st day of 2013. There are 164 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 20, 2012, a gunman wearing a helmet, body armor and a gas mask opened fire inside a crowded movie theater in Aurora, Colo., during a midnight showing of “The Dark Knight Rises,” killing 12 people in one of the deadliest mass shootings in recent U.S. history. (Suspect James Eagen Holmes has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to more than 160 counts of murder and attempted murder.) On this date: In 1861, the Congress of the Confederate States convened in Richmond, Va. In 1871, British Columbia entered confederation as a Canadian province. In 1917, the World War I draft lottery went into operation. In 1923, Mexican revolutionary leader Pancho Villa was assassinated. In 1944, an attempt by a group of German officials to assassinate Adolf Hitler with a bomb failed as the explosion only wounded the Nazi leader. President Franklin D. Roosevelt was nominated for a fourth term of office at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago. In 1951, Jordan’s King Abdullah I was assassinated in Jerusalem by a Palestinian gunman who was shot dead on the spot by security. In 1968, the first International Special Olympics Summer Games, organized by Eunice Kennedy Shriver, were held at Soldier Field in Chicago. In 1969, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin became the first men to walk on the moon after reaching the surface in their Apollo 11 lunar module. In 1976, America’s Viking 1 robot spacecraft made a successful, first-ever landing on Mars. In 1982, Irish Republican Army bombs exploded in two London parks, killing eight British soldiers, along with seven horses belonging to the Queen’s Household Cavalry. In 1988, Massachusetts Gov. Michael S. Dukakis received the Democratic presidential nomination at the party’s convention in Atlanta. Iranian leader Ayatollah Khomeini (hoh-MAY’nee) accepted a truce with Iraq, even though he said the decision was like drinking poison. In 1993, White House deputy counsel Vincent Foster Jr., 48, was found shot to death in a park near Washington, D.C.; his death was ruled a suicide. Ten years ago: Gen. John Abizaid, the top commander of coalition forces in Iraq, predicted that resistance to U.S. forces in Iraq would grow in coming months as progress was made in creating a new government to replace the dictatorial regime of Saddam Hussein. Five years ago: Pope Benedict XVI wrapped up a six-day World Youth Day Festival in Sydney, Australia, by challenging young people to shed the greed and cynicism of their time to create a new age of hope for humankind. One year ago: After years of preparation and months of buildup, London’s Olympic moment finally arrived as Royal Marine Martyn Williams carried the Olympic torch from a Royal Navy Sea King helicopter into the Tower of London on the shore of the River Thames.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, July 20, 2013— Page 25


Dear Annie: My 32-year-old sister, “Ashley,” got herself into trouble. From my earliest memories, she has always lied. She recently got out of drug rehab, but it doesn’t seem to have helped. My parents and Ashley’s biological mom consistently bail her out of trouble, whereas my other siblings and I have to learn from our mistakes. Ashley is jobless and collecting government assistance and is on Facebook all day long, but says she is “trying.” Ashley is a manipulative con artist. I believe there also may be some mental illness. She is divorced and has three children, and her actions are not in their best interests. I’ve caught her in a few lies since rehab, and I’m at the point where if I see her again, I may blow up. I have a big heart, but I cannot find it in me to forgive her for the terrible things she has done and the hurt she has caused. The stress is causing me physical pain. Ashley is still my sister, and I love her. How do I help her without getting angry about the poor decisions she continues to make? -- Ashley’s Sis Dear Sis: You cannot help Ashley until she is willing to help herself, and that may never happen. We understand your anger and frustration, but you’ll feel better if you can simply accept that this is who she is. Please concentrate your efforts on those children. They need stability and solid role models in their lives, and you can provide both. Can you take them to the park after school? Help with homework? Cook them a meal or take them out on the weekends? Whatever hours you can give them will be time well spent. Dear Annie: There is a girl in our group of friends who is really starting to annoy me. She constantly has her phone in her hand. She also won’t do certain things because she’s worried

people will “judge” her. She doesn’t play any sports and isn’t in any club, because they’re “lame.” Also, she always needs one friend by her side so she won’t be alone. She may be insecure, but it’s really starting to make me resentful. What should I do? -- California Dear California: These high-maintenance friends don’t realize how exhausting they are to be around. If you think you can gently tell her that her insecurities are getting the best of her, go ahead. But it’s a delicate balance. If you think she will turn on you, it might be best to ignore what you can and spend as little time in her company as possible. Dear Annie: This is in response to “Wanting No Regrets,” who wants to divorce his wife and go back to his ex-fiancee. I was married for 27 years when I ran into my ex-boyfriend from high school. My marriage wasn’t horrible, just boring. My ex was sweet, wonderful, loving and made me feel 17 again. We decided to get divorced and finally be together. It only took six months for me to realize what a horrible mistake I had made. Everything I disliked about him in high school was a thousand times worse. I’d forgotten his flaws and convinced myself he was perfect. “Wanting” needs to take off the rose-colored glasses and remember why he didn’t marry his ex in the first place. You were correct when you told him to try working through his problems with his wife. Even if things don’t work out, he should hold off getting too involved with his ex. He may realize that he was lucky to have gotten out of their engagement the first time. My ex will always have a special place in my heart, but not enough to live with him. -- Been There, Done That

When bringing hazardous material to the collection facility, please be advised that the quantity of hazardous waste accepted from each household is limited to 10 gallons or 50 pounds. Products should be kept in their original container with the lid tightly secured.

If heading to Laconia’s Public Works Garage for drop-off, check out their Swap Table after dropping off your hazardous products.

In the past three years, more than 58,000 gallons of hazardous waste have been collected from more than 5,000 Lakes Region households.

ASHLAND — Author Rebecca L. Matthews, a resident of Whitefield, will be available to sign copies of her book, The Light Within, at the Rock the Park NH event at the L.W. Packard Field on Saturday, July 27 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Love, betrayal, hope, and tragedy will unite this broken family. Judy has been a bitter, angry person for years. Her constant yelling has affected her children’s attitudes and pushed her husband away. But all that changes one night, when she finds herself on a deserted road being touched by God. This moment begins a transformation that will affect everyone around her. Judy struggles at first to let go of her old ways, but as she learns to let go and allows God to guide her, she finds that life changes for the better. She becomes calm and peaceful as she places God first and foremost at the center of her life. Her children notice the change and how differently they are treated, and their attitudes begin to transform as well. But Judy’s husband, Rich, continues keeping his distance. When he finally reveals why, the whole family is affected, and their marriage comes to an end. Judy tries to move on, and Rich does too, but both feel guilty for their part in the downfall of the marriage. Rich desires the peace that Judy has, but he can’t seem to escape what he has done. Meanwhile, their daughter is dealing with her own new struggles at school, where conflict abounds. When a horrible accident occurs, everyone in the family will be put to the test. Experience the transformation with this family as they discover The Light Within and find peace in the midst of chaos.

55th Canterbury Fair: fun for the whole family Tilton Masons plan breakfast and bake sale

CANTERBURY — An annual volunteer-run celebration of small-town community, this year’s Canterbury Fair will once again kickoff with the Woodchuck Classic 5k Road Race, and also include traditional Morris dancing, children’s games on the green, a huge What-Not “tag” Sale, a used book sale, antiques, live music, canoe polo on the fire pond, juried crafts, a pie baking contest, food for every taste, and a special drumming performance. Always the last Saturday in July, this year’s Fair is on July 27 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Canterbury Center. Many local organizations lend a hand to make the Fair a success, including the Sunset Mountain Fish and Game Club, which provides a chicken barbeque. “The secret BBQ sauce has been a crowd pleaser for many years,” said Canterbury Fair Chair, Lisa Carlson. Tickets are available for sale throughout the morning of the Fair. For the second year, a pie-baking contest will be held. Three categories of home-baked pie will be

evaluated by local “celebrity judges” who will taste pies in the blueberry, apple, and the “wild berry” (open) category. After the judging, the pies will be sold as desserts at the Chicken Barbeque and at the baked goods table. Music will fill Canterbury Center for most of the day with Dudley and Jacqueline Laufman accompanying the Morris Dancers, as well as local groups “The Fiddling Thomsons,” “Home Folks,” and a special drumming performance this year. The Canterbury Historical Society uses Fair Day to open an exhibit in the Elkins Memorial Building, with this year’s installation entitled “Canterbury Through the Years 1900-2000.” Their one-room schoolhouse is also open for the Fair. Parking is available nearby for a $5 suggested donation, with free bus service to the Fair. Canterbury Center is closed to vehicular traffic during Fair Hours. Net proceeds from the Fair benefit the Canterbury Fund, which aids local families in need.

Common will be transformed for a day into a bustling fairground for the 61st Annual Hebron Fair on Saturday, July 27. One of Newfound Lake region’s most popular summer events, the fair will open with a church bell ringing at 9 a.m. A silent auction starts at 11 a.m., the live auction begins at 1 p.m., and the chicken barbecue will be at 5:30 p.m. It is rain or shine and admission is free. Proceeds benefit the Union Congregational Church. Over 100 craftspeople will be selling their wares. In addition to the many crafts, there will be a variety of delicious foods, including a melting pot of homemade baked beans at the lunch tent; a huge selection of rummage in the church basement; white elephant items; used books and puzzles; t-shirts; plants and much more. The children will enjoy pony rides, face paint-

providing great entertainment for all ages. The auction will feature a large selection of used furniture and other great stuff. Under the big striped tent, starting at 1 p.m., Rev. “Honest John” Fischer will be taking bids on fantastic pre-owned treasures, as well as a multitude of items and gift certificates generously donated by local businesses. The silent auction runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. In addition to all the goodies, preserves, fresh vegetables and plants, gift baskets donated by local businesses will be raffled at the church’s food and plant table. The following day, Sunday, July 28, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., there will be a $2-a-Bag Sale in the church basement. Also on Sunday afternoon. unbeatable bargains will be available under the white elephant and book tents.
