‘Poison pill’ ends up killing State School bill CONCORD — Legislation to repeal the rider attached to the 2012-2013 state budget prescribing the process for selling the former Laconia State School property died last week when conferees failed to reconcile the different versions of the bill adopted by House of Representatives and Senate. In 2011, the Legislature, at the initiative of the Senate, circumvented the statutory process for disposing see PILL page 12

Bolt struck tree about 25 ft. from huddled Boy Scouts By Gail OBer


BELMONT — As of 5 p.m. yesterday two of the six Boys Scouts who were taken to Concord Hospital dealing with the after effects of a Monday evening lightning strike in Gilmanton remain hospitalized, said Daniel Webster Council Marketing Director Greg Osborn. The remaining 17 boys scouts, who

were taken to other hospitals including Lakes Region General Hospital, Franklin Regional Hospital, Speare Memorial Hospital, and Huggins Hospital have all been released he said. Osborn said he understands the hospital personnel ran some metabolic tests on the boys and thought they should be further monitored overnight. He said all but one was scheduled to be discharged today.

He said the parents of all the boys were notified and most of them returned to Camp Bell on the Griswold Scout Reservation in Gilmanton yesterday. He said most of the boys are from Southern New Hampshire but a few were from Massachusetts and a few other states. Twenty-three boy scouts who were participating in a leadership course at Camp see SCOUTS page 10

Judge deciding if Zimmerman jury will hear other calls he made to police to report suspicious characters

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — Several times in six months, neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman called police to report suspicious characters in the gated townhouse community where he lived. Each time, when asked, he reported that the suspects were black males. On Tuesday, the judge at Zimmerman’s murder trial in the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin listened to those five calls and weighed whether to let the jury hear them, too. Prosecutors want to use them to bolster their argument that Zimmerman was increasingly frustrated with repeated burglaries and had reached a breaking point the night he shot the unarmed teenager. The recordings show see CALLS page 9

Obama opens 2nd-term drive against climate change WASHINGTON (AP) — Appealing for courageous action “before it’s too late,” President Barack Obama launched a major second-term drive Tuesday to combat climate change and secure a safer planet, bypassing Congress as he sought to set a cornerstone of his legacy. Abandoning his suit jacket under a sweltering sun at Georgetown University, Obama issued a dire warning about the environment: Temperatures are rising, sea level is climbing, the Arctic ice is melting and the world is doing far too little to

stop it. Obama said the price for inaction includes lost lives and homes and hundreds of billions of dollars. “As a president, as a father and as an American, I’m here to say we need to act,” Obama said. “I refuse to condemn your generation and future generations to a planet that’s beyond fixing.” At the core of Obama’s plan are new controls on new and existing power plants that emit carbon dioxide — heat-trapping gases blamed for global warming. The program also will boost renewable energy

production on federal lands, increase efficiency standards and prepare communities to deal with higher temperatures. Obama called for the U.S. to be a global leader in the search for solutions. But Obama’s campaign will face extensive obstacles, including a complicated, lengthy process of implementation and the likelihood that the limits on power plants will be challenged in court. Likewise, the instantaneous political opposition that met his plan made clear the difficulty the presisee OBAMA page 6

5-4 Supreme Court decision ends key element of Voting Rights Act WASHINGTON (AP) — A deeply divided Supreme Court threw out the most powerful part of the landmark Voting Rights Act on Tuesday, a decision deplored by the White House but cheered by mostly Southern states now free from nearly 50 years of intense federal oversight of their elections. Split along ideological and partisan lines, the justices voted 5-4 to strip the government of its most potent tool to

stop voting bias — the requirement in the Voting Rights Act that all or parts of 15 states with a history of discrimination in voting, mainly in the South, get Washington’s approval before changing the way they hold elections. Chief Justice John Roberts, writing for a majority of conservative, Republicanappointed justices, said the law’s provision that determines which states are covered

is unconstitutional because it relies on 40-year-old data and does not account for racial progress and other changes in U.S. society. The decision effectively puts an end to the advance approval requirement that has been used to open up polling places to minority voters in the nearly half century since it was first enacted in 1965, unless see VOTING RIGHTS page 7

MOSCOW (AP) — Yes, he’s at a Moscow airport, and no, you can’t have him. Russian President Vladimir Putin gave the first official acknowledgment of the whereabouts of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden on Tuesday and promptly rejected U.S. pleas to turn him over.

Snowden, who is charged with violating American espionage laws, fled Hong Kong over the weekend, touching off a global guessing game over where he went and frustrating U.S. efforts to bring him to justice. Putin said Snowden is in the transit zone of Sheremetyevo Airport and has

not passed through Russian immigration, meaning he technically is not in Russia and thus is free to travel wherever he wants. After arriving Sunday on a flight from Hong Kong, Snowden registered for a Havana-bound flight Monday en route to see SNOWDEN page 3

Muskrats are beaten at New Bedford, 7-6; now 1 game back NEW BEDFORD, Mass. — The Muskrats rallied for three runs in the 8th inning here last night but it was not enough to overcome an early 4-run deficit and Laconia was beaten by New Bedford, 7-6. Laconia had 11 hits for the game, three by right fielder Jake Peevyhouse (Arizona State) and each each by left fielder Joe Torres (Iona) and second baseman Joey Bielek (Arizona State). Bielek drove in three runs and first baseman Ryan McBroom (West Virginia) added two more. With the loss, Laconia dropped to 8-4 in the Eastern Division of the New England Collegiate Baseball League, one game behind division leading Newport (Conn.). New Bedford is now 4-9. Starting Laconia pitcher Joe Donino (Columbia) went four innings and took the loss. He surrendered just three hits but walked five. Torres, Peevyhouse and McBroom all singled during the Muskrat’s eighth inning rally that also benefited from a couple of walks and four New Bedford wild pitches. Catcher Tanner Hill (Texas State) flied out to right with two men still on base to end the threat. Laconia plays at Newport tonight and at Holyoke on Thursday night before returning to Robbie Mills Field for a Friday night game against Mystic. First pitch is scheduled for 6:30 p.m.

Pedroia drives in 4 runs as Red Sox beat Colorado 11-4

BOSTON (AP) — Dustin Pedroia drove in four runs and had three of Boston’s season-high 20 hits, and Ryan Dempster took advantage of an early cushion that kept getting bigger for the Red Sox in their 11-4 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night. Mike Napoli added two RBIs and Jacoby Ellsbury, Daniel Nava and Jose Iglesias joined Pedroia with three hits apiece as the Red Sox gave Dempster an abundance of offense after scoring just two runs in his previous two starts combined. Dempster (5-8) allowed two runs and six hits over six innings, leaving with an 8-2 lead and picking up his first victory since June 9. The Red Sox had at least three hits in every inning until the fifth, when they finally went hitless but still got a runner on base on a two-out walk to David Ortiz. It was also the first inning Boston failed to score after roughing up Juan Nicasio (4-4) early. from preceding page Venezuela and then possible asylum in Ecuador, but he didn’t board the plane. Speculation has been rife that Russian security services have been talking to Snowden and might want to keep him in Russia for a more thorough debriefing, but Putin denied that. “Our special services never worked with Mr. Snowden and aren’t working with him today,” Putin said at a news conference during a visit to Finland. Because Moscow has no extradition agreement with Washington, it cannot meet the U.S. request, he said. “Mr. Snowden is a free man, and the sooner he chooses his final destination the better it is for us and for him,” Putin said. “I hope it will not affect the businesslike character of our relations with the U.S. and I hope that our partners will understand that.” U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Tuesday that the U.S. wants Russia to show respect for the rule of law and comply with common practices when it comes to fugitives from justice. Putin’s staunch refusal to consider deportation shows his readiness to further challenge Washington at a time when U.S.-Russian relations are already strained over Syria and other issues, including a Russian ban on adoptions by Americans. “Just showing America that we don’t care about our relations, we are down to basically a Cold War pattern: The enemy of your government is our friend,” said Masha Lipman of the Carnegie Moscow Center.

Markey wins Mass. U.S. Senate seat in special election

BOSTON (AP) — Longtime Democratic U.S. Rep. Edward Markey defeated Republican political newcomer Gabriel Gomez in a special election on Tuesday for the state’s U.S. Senate seat long held by John Kerry, a race that failed to draw the attention that the state’s 2010 special Senate election did. Markey, 66, won the early backing of Kerry and much of the state’s Democratic political establishment, which was set on avoiding a repeat of the stunning loss it suffered three years ago, when Republican state Sen. Scott Brown upset Democratic state Attorney General Martha Coakley in the election to replace the late Democratic Sen. Edward Kennedy. Gomez, a 47-year-old businessman and former Navy SEAL, positioned himself as a moderate and Washington outsider who would challenge partisan gridlock, contrasting himself with Markey, who was first elected to the U.S. House in 1976. Markey had an advantage of about 8 percentage points over Gomez with most precincts reporting

late Tuesday, according to unofficial returns. He took to Twitter to thank voters after his victory. “Thank you Massachusetts!” he tweeted. “I am deeply honored for the opportunity to serve you in the United States Senate.” Gomez said he called Markey to congratulate him and wished him “nothing but the best.” In a concession speech to supporters, Gomez said he was a better person as a result of the campaign and believed Markey would be a better senator having gone through the election. Gomez said he’d waged the campaign with honor and integrity but was “massively outspent” by Democrats in the five-month election and was facing the might of the national Democratic Party. Markey outspent Gomez throughout the race, and Republicans were unable to match a well-oiled Democratic field organization in an election that saw relatively light turnout in much of the heavily Democratic state.

Court seals documents related to killing near Hernandez home ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts court said Tuesday it has sealed documents related to the killing of a semi-pro football player found dead a mile from the home of Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez. Attleboro District Court officials said documents related to the case, including search warrants, have been impounded, meaning the public can’t see them. No charges have been filed.

State police have searched in and around Hernandez’s home in North Attleborough several times. At least three search warrants have been issued in connection with the investigation. Odin Lloyd, who played for the semi-pro Boston Bandits, was found slain June 17. The 27-year-old’s relatives said he was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee and that the two men were friends. see HERNANDEZ page 12

Fighting the build a new stadium con game Something’s gotten into Brazilians that hasn’t caught on here, but should. They’re out on the streets protesting their government’s plan to sink billions into monuments to sport. Rather than celebrate their country’s hosting of the soccer World Cup next year and the Olympic Games in 2016, they are saying “hey.” As in “hey,” our streets are lousy. “Hey,” the schools are substandard. “Hey,” despite our economic miracle, poverty persists. Most gratifying is the Brazilians’ chant: “A teacher is worth more than Neymar!” That would be Neymar da Silva Santos, a 21-yearold soccer great, said to be making $18 million year. A higher value has trumped Brazilians’ love of soccer. Could you imagine Texans taking to the streets and shouting, “A teacher is worth more than Tony Romo”? (Romo just signed a six-year, $108 million contract.) They’d be called downright un-American, if not socialist, even though the Dallas Cowboys’ $1.2 billion stadium was built with public largesse. For starters, the city of Arlington issued municipal bonds to help the Cowboys’ billionaire owner, Jerry Jones, build his palace. Nine years ago, its voters were conned into raising taxes on themselves to repay the bonds. Objections were crushed under the avalanche of pro-stadium ad spending. Arlington further enriches Jones by owning the stadium and therefore not collecting real estate taxes on the $905 million property — another $17 million a year given to Jones and lost by the city. Actually, all Americans have been sucked in because the interest on those bonds is tax exempt: Thus, Jones gets lower borrowing costs, and U.S. taxpayers subsidize his stadium to the tune of $65 million over 29 years. Tax-exempt municipal bonds were intended to help local governments build roads, sewers and schools. Applying them to coliseums since 1986 will cost U.S. taxpayers $4 billion, according to numbers crunched by Bloomberg. In 1986, Congress tried to stop cities and states from financing

sports facilities with tax-exempt bonds. The legislation was messed with in a way that encouraged local governments to borrow even more for sports facilities. In most cases, Americans passively march behind their civic leaders, dutifully wearing the team caps and shirts. They find their identities in these mega-businesses and adulate their players-for-hire. Usually, a threat to leave town is enough to quiet unruly naysayers, as happened in Indianapolis. The Colts said in 2006 that without substantial taxpayer help, they would be gone. And so a new Lucas Oil Stadium, where the Colts will play 10 home games this year, was built at a cost of $720 million. The Colts paid $100 million of it, and the taxpayers the rest through a bunch of new levies. Of course, the locals issued municipal bonds, a debt made more painful by the 2008 market collapse. Some of those losses were made up by cuts in grants for the arts and culture. Yet team worship continues apace. Hardly a bar in Indianapolis isn’t lit by Colts neon. Stadiums are sold as economic engines. But when you add it all up — the subsidies, local dollars diverted to far-off owners and players, and the rest — sports facilities provide little economic benefit, notes Harvard urban planning expert Judith Grant Long. She found that the average “public-private partnership” to build stadiums left the cities paying 78 percent and the teams 22 percent. As for the Olympic Games, Goldman Sachs economist Jose Ursua says that they rarely turn a profit for the community. Whether Brazil would be an exception seems of little interest to the demonstrators there. This is about taking care of the people, about themselves, not sacrificing their interests to the sports machine. If only Americans could reclaim their self-regard with similar zest.

She has written for such diverse publications as The New York Times, Harper’s Bazaar and Institutional Investor.)

— LETTERS — Shame on you. HB-542 had nothing to do with telephone rates To The Daily Sun, An open letter to our N.H. State Senators: One has to question why an amendment regarding telephone rates and service that has nothing to do with HB-542 was added as an amendment to that bill? Very deceptive if you ask me. Where is the transparency in state government? I hope you don’t have to explain

to you constituents on election day why you supported the amendment in question. It deregulate telephone service in New Hampshire and eliminates the PUC from supporting customers who have a problem with service. Please vote NO on the HB-542 Amendment. Bill Whalen Sanbornton

LETTERS Several reps had hard time tuning in & another was fast asleep To The Daily Sun, I attended the meeting of the Belknap County Convention on Monday night. The presentation by the House of Corrections warden, his staff and Ricci/ Greene Architects was clear, to the point and realistic. It is a 70 year projection (as was emphasized time and again) by the architects and warden. Yes, it was Worsman’s suggestion that Belknap County would save tons of money by continuing to send those offenders to Strafford County for much less money, but that’s just not practical or feasible. “Out of sight, out of mind” under the guise of not spending the money for a correctional facility to replace a building that has a multitude of building code violations, inadequate space, impractical and useless features just doesn’t make sense. Ricci/Greene Associates drove home the point that their model is based on getting the offenders the much needed help while incarcerated, then rehab leading to re-entering their respective communities a more productive citizen. I believe this is often referred to as “breaking the vicious cycle of recidivism”. Ricci/Greene’s many years of developing successfully operational facilities all over the country was impressive. What the convention might have misunderstood was that the projected 180 person building would be built with the future population increase in mind instead of having to add on or come

back in a few years to ask for additions as a result of overcrowding. I believe it’s called being cost effective...right? The convention just did not seem to understand the very fact that each new generation will have citizens who will be in need of this type of facility; the model ideally does its job of housing, rehabbing and returning this population to society at large. This model is being used in parts of the country with statistics to which prove their rate of success. Both Rep. Greenmore (R-Meredith) and Chairperson Worsman (R-Meredith) asked questions of Ricci/Greene that would take a crystal ball with which we would be able to look into the future and in turn correctly predict it’s outcome. . . if only we could, how idealistic our country, state and county would be. Rep. Tilton’s (R-Laconia) query of if the facility could be ‘built in phases and if that would be more cost effective’ Rep. Dennis Fields (R-Sanbornton) summed it up best by stating “the proposed plan is the best over the long run for the county and urged his fellow legislators to support it.” Most disturbing was that an open public meeting was not run by “Roberts Rules of Order”....why? And last but not least, watching one of the representatives in attendance falling asleep while at the meeting...huh? Bernadette Loesch Laconia

Work largely complete at top of M’borough Neck Pathway To The Daily Sun, Those who travel the northernmost section of Moultonborough Neck Road, and certainly those who use that section of the Moultonborough Pathway, have noticed the completion of repair/refit work on the pathway lane adjacent to both sides of the roadway. The section of the pathway affected by this work runs from where the pathway first enters from the area of the playground to the top of the hill south of the intersection with Green’s Basin Road. The troublesome gravel strip separating the pathway from the roadway has been eliminated, and the pavement now covers the full width from roadway to the outer edge of the pathway itself.

section is repainting of lines separating the roadway from the pathway surface. Similar repair/refit work will be done on key areas further down the Neck Road, but that effort will be held until September, after the peak summer traffic period. The work already done and to be done later will go a long way toward making use of the Pathway much safer. The Moultonborough Pathway Association wishes to thank town road agent Scott Kinmond and his crew from the Moultonborough DPW/ Highway Department for their efforts in effecting this work.

LETTERS 1776 was really a lousy year filled with incompetence & panic To The Daily Sun, Here comes another Independence Day. As we collectively set to glorify ourselves and bask in our romanticized “Spirit of ‘76”, we might want to take a moment to reflect. The “spirit” in ‘76 was incompetence, panic, folly, failure and pessimism encased in disease, defeat and retreat. For the most part, 1776 was a lousy year. George Washington forced the British to evacuate Boston March 17. The British commander, William Howe, sailed his army to Halifax to await reinforcements. Washington marched his troops to New York. Both sides knew New York was the lynch pin of colonial unity. It was the hub of colonial communications, commerce, finance, industry and wealth. Nonetheless, Washington’s decision to engage at New York was militarily unsound. “Britannica rules the waves” and New York was an island. Its only connection to mainland America was a narrow bridge more than 10 miles north of the city. Once deciding upon New York, Washington and his advisors concluded Long Island would be crucial. It was the gateway to the city. The “brain trust” did not seemed to appreciate both Long Island and Manhattan Island would be death traps if the British came in force under sail. Throughout April, May and June, Washington’s army fortified. On July 2, the Continental Congress in Philadelphia voted to “dissolve the connection” with Britain, and the British began landing in force at Staten Island. Congress adopted The Declaration of Independence two days later. At Staten Island, huge British ships, some with nearly a 100-mounted gun, landed — and they just kept coming. On August 12 alone, 100 ships arrived. On August 22, Howe attacked. Five days later, Long Island fell. The Continental Army — outnumbered more than two to one — barely escaped annihilation at night through horrendous rains and wind. Washington proved himself an ineffective, indecisive and undisciplined

leader. Even after 50 days of British buildup, he could not bring himself to abandon an unwise plan. In the fight, the Redcoats outsmarted and outfought him. He lost personal composure at the Battle of Brooklyn as his army disintegrated in panic. The British occupied Manhattan. The continentals retreated northward. At the Battle of White Plains (Oct. 28), the continentals were handily defeated again. They retreated into New Jersey. Gen. Howe, knowing he had destroyed the Continental Army, turned command over to Lord Charles Cornwallis and went on holiday. Cornwallis chased Washington across New Jersey. Illness plagued the continentals. At any given moment, perhaps 40 percent was incapacitated. Troops deserted en mass taking their weapons. Cornwallis continued pressing. By November’s end, the king’s forces had driven the Continental Army to the banks of the Delaware. Between Dec. 2 and 11, Washington retreated across the river into Pennsylvania near McKonkey Ferry. Although it would get better in the following 10 days, a Christmas Eve assessment was bleak by any measure. The Continental Army was ill clothed, demoralized, sick and near collapse. In a week, all enlistments would be up and the army would simply dissolve. Washington’s leadership was in question. His seconds in command thought him inept. Fearing the hangman, the Continental Congress fled Philadelphia Dec. 12. Civilians lost faith. They lined up to pledge loyalty to the crown in exchange for amnesty. Knowing the war was all but won, Gen. Cornwallis ceased military operations for the winter and set his army about consolidating its gains. He retired to New York on personal leave. Camped with Washington and the Continental Army, the poet of political prose, Thomas Paine, wrote, “These are the times that try men’s souls.” Robert Moran Meredith

What difference does it make when we have American Idol to watch? To The Daily Sun, Much ado about nothing or something? You be the judge. Two middle fingers up is what the community organizer received from Russia and China as he vacations on Ssafari in the land of his birth while Edward Snowden thumbed his nose at that empty suite Secretary of State John Kerry. Snowden is making the rounds of all Obama’s friends: Hong Kong, China, Moscow, Russia, Havana, Cuba, Caracas, Venezuela and finally, Quito, Ecuador. By the time we get him back he’ll resemble a wrung out sponge as Obama’s friends will squeeze all the information they can out of the traitor. Six months from now our idiot populist (Mainstream Democrats) won’t even remember or want to remember who Edward Snowden is but they’ll remember what Lady Gaga wore to the music awards.

bor. Ask him if he can tell you who the following people are, (Brian A. Terry, Ty Woods, Glen Doherty, John Hammer, Sean Smith, and Chris Stevens.) I’ll give you a hint: one was killed as a result of Eric Holder’s debacle and four were killed as a result of team Obama and Clinton failing to send back-up and you can Google the one who’s left. But after all “what difference does it make,” as long as we have American Idol the Bachlorettd and Dancing with the Stars? Add to it that ignorance is bliss when it comes to “U.N. Agenda 21”. But, as Alfred E. Neuman said, “What, Me Worry?” Groton New Hampshire got in step with the Obamanation and Agenda 21. Check out the spinning abominations on their mountains.

City Council will look at using downtown TIF funds to leverage larger projects By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — After hearing a presentation of the improvements to the streetscape around the Main Street bridge over the Winnipesaukee River this week, the City Council has begun to consider a more expansive approach to projects within the downtown Tax Increment Financing (TIF) district. Tax increment financing allows municipalities to delineate TIF districts, then apply a portion of the future tax revenues that accrue from the increase in assessed value generated by new construction, expansion or renovation of property in the district to finance public improvements by either paying cash or servicing borrowings, within it. The boundaries of the downtown TIF district enclose an area roughly ringed by Fair Street, New Salem Street, Church Street, Union Avenue and Court Street. The district included 287 properties spread over 145 acres, which together represented a total assessed value of more than $70-million when the district was established in 2004. With the reconstruction of the Main Street bridge scheduled to begin next spring, the TIF committee presented a plan for enhancing the area at the foot of Main Street, which represents a major gateway to downtown. The concrete fronting the parking garage on one side and Sawyer’s Jewelry on the other would from preceding page If you see a windmill from your property, petition your town to remove your view tax and then the surrounding towns can sue Groton for the lost revenue.

be replaced with brick pavers and both areas would be landscaped, using local materials, like granite and timbers, and plantings. There would be seating areas and pedestrian lighting. The improvements would be designed to accommodate the eventual extension of the riverwalk through the intersection. The cost of the improvements would be approximately $455,540, depending on the quality and price of the materials used. Finance Director Donna Woodaman told the council that the balance in the TIF fund was $311,000 and another $173,000 would be added to it at the close of the fiscal year on July 1 for a total of $484,000. City Councilor Henry Lipman (Ward 3), chairman of the council’s Finance Committee, questioned the wisdom of applying virtually the entire balance of the fund on one project in the absence of a comprehensive plan for improvements downtown. “I want

to see the entire plan,” he said, “to see what we would be giving up.” Councilor Matt Lahey (Ward 2) suggested that the balance be used to service a borrowing to finance a more expansive project, not limited to the immediate vicinity of the bridge. He said that the impact on downtown would be much greater than making a series of incremental improvements as funds became available. City Manager Scott Myers said that the TIF would generate at least $173,000 annually, enough to service a borrowing of about $2-million with a reasonable term. Planning Director Shanna Saunders reminded the council that a timely decision on the proposed improvements was necessary in order to incorporate them into the design and reconstruction of the bridge.

OBAMA from page 2 dent will face in seeking broad support. “There will be legal challenges. No question about that,” former EPA Administrator Christie Whitman said in an interview. “It’s a program that’s largely executive. He doesn’t need Congress. What that does, of course, is make them (Congress) madder.” Obama also offered a rare insight into his deliberations on whether to approve the Keystone XL oil pipeline, deeming it in America’s interests only if it doesn’t worsen carbon pollution. Obama has faced intense political pressure from supporters and opponents of the 1,200-mile pipeline from Canada to Texas. Declaring the scientific debate over climate change and its causes obsolete, Obama mocked those who deny that humans are contributing to the warming of the planet. “We don’t have time for a meeting of the flat-earth society,” Obama said. Obama’s announcement followed years of inaction by Congress to combat climate change. A first-term effort by Obama to use a market-based approach

called cap-and-trade to lower emissions failed, and in February a newly re-elected Obama issued lawmakers an ultimatum in his State of the Union: “If Congress won’t act soon to protect future generations, I will.” Four months later, impatient environmental activists reveled in the news that Obama was finally taking matters into his own hands, announcing a series of steps that don’t require congressional approval. “This is the change we have been waiting for,” said Michael Brune, who runs the Sierra Club, an environmental group. “Today, President Obama has shown he is keeping his word to future generations.” Republicans on both sides of the Capitol dubbed Obama’s plan a continuation of his “war on coal” and “war on jobs.” The National Association of Manufacturers claimed Obama’s proposals would drive up costs. Republican Rep. Shelley Moore Capito of the coal-heavy state of West Virginia slammed what she called Obama’s “tyrannical efforts to bankrupt the coal industry.” see next page

Police investigating breakins at 2 auto repair shops

LACONIA — Police are investigating two separate burglaries of two city automotive shops. The owner of Bayside Automotive on Union Ave. said his shop was targeted some time Saturday night into Sunday morning. He said the thieves got in through a window on the west side of the building. Steve Cray said the thief or thieves stole a number of tools but that the items taken didn’t make any sense to him because many of them were specialty tools like a harmonic balancer for a Chrysler and an oxygen-sensor socket kit. He also said some more common tools were left behind. “(Whoever it is) is either a mechanic or an idiot,” Cray said. He said the shop has been on Union Avenue for about 40 years and this is the first time they’ve had a burglary. He said before the WOW Trail was built there was the occasional vandalizing of cars in the back of the building but since the trail was built there haven’t been any problems. He said his tool suppliers have records of everything they’ve bought and will be providing police a complete list of what was taken. Police are also investigation a burglary at Bayview Auto Body on Artisan Court — which is reached through Gilford, off Lily Pond Road — that was reported on June 13. Lt. Rich Simmons said it appears someone took one of the cars that was in the hard and used it to break the locked gate. Simmons said the “inside of the place was trashed” in a way that looked like the thief or thieves were looking for stuff. He said things were taken from then shop. Anyone with any information is asked to call Laconia Police at 524-5252 or the Greater Laconia Crime Line at 524-1717. — Gail Ober

VOTING RIGHTS from page 2 Congress can come up with a new formula that Roberts said meets “current conditions” in the United States. That seems unlikely to happen any time soon. President Barack Obama, the nation’s first black chief executive, issued a statement saying he was “deeply disappointed” with the ruling and calling on Congress to update the law. But in the South, Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley said that, while the requirement was necessary in the 1960s, that was no longer the case. He said, “We have long lived up to what happened then, and we have made sure it’s not going to happen again.” The advance approval, or preclearance, requirement shifted the legal burden and required governments that were covered to demonstrate that their proposed election changes would not discriminate. Going forward, the outcome alters the calculus of passing election-related legislation in the affected states and local jurisdictions. The threat of an objection from Washington has hung over such proposals

for nearly a half century. Unless Congress acts, that deterrent now is gone. That prospect has upset civil rights groups which especially worry that changes on the local level might not get the same scrutiny as the actions of state legislatures. Tuesday’s decision means that a host of state and local laws that have not received Justice Department approval or have not yet been submitted can take effect. Prominent among those are voter identification laws in Alabama and Mississippi. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, a Republican, said his state’s voter ID law, which a panel of federal judges blocked as discriminatory, also would be allowed to take effect. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, dissenting from the ruling along with the court’s three other liberal, Democratic appointees, said there was no mistaking the court’s action. “Hubris is a fit word for today’s demolition” of the see next page

from preceding page “The federal government should leave us the hell alone,” said Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson, whose agency handles Texas’ environment and energy markets. Even industry groups that have been friendly to Obama and supportive of his climate goals, such as the Edison Electric Institute, which represents power plants, signaled their apprehension by calling for “achievable compliance limits and deadlines.” Obama said the same arguments have been used in the past when the U.S. has taken other steps to protect the environment. “That’s what they said every time,” Obama said. “And every time, Excellent Dental care isn’t out of your reach anymore!

Best dam man in N.H. retiring By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — “The best dam man in New Hampshire,” crowed longtime friend Dave Gilbert as family, friends and colleagues gathered at the home of Lisa Landry near the Lakeport Dam on Friday to celebrate the coming retirement of Bob Fay, who operated the dams throughout the Winnipesaukee River and Pemigewasset River watersheds for 74 days short of 36 years. “He’s made us all look good,” said Jim Gallagher, chief engineer of the Dam Bureau, who presented Fay with a proclamation from Governor Maggie Hassan and a plague from his workmates. The governor lauded Fay for his stewardship of what are among the most important natural resources and valuable economic assets in the state. Commemorating Fay’s years of service, the plaque features an early photograph of the original Lakeport Dam, which prompted one wag to exclaim “Bob took that picture.” During his tenure Fay’s made his home and office at the corner of Elm Street and Fore Street overlooking the Lakeport Dam in the quarters that housed offices of the Winnepissiogee Lake Cotton and Woolen Manufacturing Company. During the 19th century, the company controlled both watersheds, managing lake levels and stream flows to turn the countless spindles and bobbins of the mills that lined the 134 miles of the Merrimack Valley to spawn the industrial transformation of New England. “I live where I work and I work where I live,” Fay once remarked. “The Lake Company controlled the lakes with an iron hand,” he said, explaining that as water was stored to power the mills hayfields and pastures were flooded, sparking conflicts with farmers, and when the lakes were drawn down navigation was hindered, angering lumbermen rafting timber and shippers transporting goods.

The two watersheds include New Hampshire’s four largest lakes — Winnipesaukee, Squam, Winnisquam and Newfound — which together serve as the headwaters of the Merrimack River. Stretching over some 60,400 acres, the lakes represent half the surface water of the entire Merrimack Valley. “Winnipesaukee is still a big reservoir,” Fay said, “but, today the challenge is reconciling the special interests.” Lake levels and stream flows, he explained, are managed to accommodate boating enthusiasts, whitewater kayakers, hydro-electric generators, spawning fish, marine contractors, marina operators and shorefront landowners — always, Fay stressed, with an eye to Mother Nature. “All the special interests in the world can’t change Mother Nature,” he said. The levels of the lakes, especially Winnipesaukee which dominates its watershed, are managed within operating ranges based on historical data measuring rainfall and inflow day-byday. “We try to stay on the curve and with average precipitation, we’re all right,” said Fay. For example, spring flows are managed to bring Lake Winnipesaukee to “full reservoir” — 504.32 feet above sea level — by June 1. As the boating season wanes, the level is allowed to fall a foot or more to limit ice damage to shorefront properties and to capture the melting of the winter snowpack and the coming of the spring rains, which together return the lake to full. In the meantime, downstream flows are managed between 250 cubic feet per second (cfs), or 7.5 gallons, and 1,100 cfs at the Lakeport Dam to optimize the generating potential of hydroelectric operations at the Lakeport, Avery and Lochmere dams. Much of the time, managing the water requires a series of incremental adjustments, but sudden changes see next page

CALLS from page 2 Zimmerman’s “ill will,” prosecutor Richard Mantei told Judge Debra Nelson. “It shows the context in which the defendant sought out his encounter with Trayvon Martin,” Mantei said. Defense attorney Mark O’Mara argued that the calls were irrelevant and that nothing matters but the seven or eight minutes before Zimmerman fired the deadly shot into Martin’s chest. The prosecution is “going to ask the jury to make a leap from a good, responsible, citizen behavior to seething behavior,” O’Mara said. The judge did not immediately rule on whether to admit the recordings. Prosecutors played the calls with the jurors out of the courtroom at the beginning of a day in which a former Zimmerman neighbor testified about what she saw of the confrontation. Also, prosecutors presented graphic photos of Martin’s body, a police officer described trying to revive Martin as bubbling sounds came from his chest, and

a police manager described how she helped Zimmerman set up the neighborhood watch. In the calls, Zimmerman identifies himself as a neighborhood watch volunteer and recounts that his neighborhood has had a rash of recent break-ins. In one call, he asks that officers respond quickly since the suspects “typically get away quickly.” In another, he describes suspicious black men hanging around a garage and mentions his neighborhood had a recent garage break-in. Zimmerman, 29, could get life in prison if convicted of second-degree murder for gunning down Martin as the young man walked from a convenience store. Zimmerman followed him in his truck and called a police dispatch number before he and the teen got into a fight. Zimmerman has claimed self-defense, saying he opened fire after the teenager jumped him and began slamming his head against the concrete sidewalk. Zimmerman, whose father is white and whose mother is Hispanic, has denied the confrontation with the black teenager had anything to do with race, as Martin’s family and its supporters have charged.

from preceding page of weather may require much more. Then, Fay said “somebody’s going to get a bellyache. We don’t want to hurt anybody, but we have to manage the water.” Fay recalled that in the autumn of 2005, when heavy rains raised Lake Winnipesaukee to a record level — nearly a foot above full and more than two feet above its average seasonal level — discharges at the Lakeport Dam reached 2,500 cfs for several weeks, flooding shoreline properties downstream, particularly at Silver Lake. By the following spring, lakeside homeowners, marina operators, marine contractors and boating enthusiasts, concerned by the low level of the lake, convened a meeting with officials of the Dam Bureau, who some charged had drawn the lake too low. “Mother Nature is Mother Nature,” Fay remarked at the time, noting that “we’re seeing the effects of an extremely wet fall and an extremely dry spring” and suggesting that those concerned by the low level of the lake “can pray for rain.” Two weeks later, when torrential rains raised the lake more than a foot over a weekend, Fay asked “weren’t we smart to take the lake down to where we did in anticipation of this storm?” Fay kept a close eye on Mother Nature, day-in and day-out. Rising at 5:30 every morning, he began by checking the weather data then went to his gauging station on the weir above the Lakeport Dam, where he measured the overnight precipitation, melting any snow on a hot plate, as well as the lake level, water temperature and stream flow. At 7:30 a.m., once he has collected the data, Fay, announcing himself as the “dam man,” recorded a message describing conditions throughout the watershed. The recorded message spared him from fielding calls, which in the past could run to as many as 350 a month. At 8 a.m. Fay conveyed his information and offered his advice to the operating engineer and by 8:30 began adjusting discharges at the Lakeport, Avery and Lochmere dams. In addition, every two weeks during the winter Fay measures the depth and water content of the snowpack at seven sites

around Lake Winnipesaukee in order to estimate the run-off come spring. “There is always water going over the dam,” said Steve Doyon, one of four operating engineers he said Fay had “trained or tolerated. We spoke every weekday morning at 8 a.m. and sometimes three or four times day,” he recalled. “And Bob worked weekends too. He lived it.” He said that while he had the tools for his job, Fay’s “wealth of knowledge and experience showed me how to use them.” Peter Ames, a veteran dam operator who is among those aspiring to succeed Fay, said the two have spent every morning together for the past two months as he tries to grasp a share of more than three decades of accumulated wisdom. “He told me just knock on my door or call any time,” Ames said. Although Fay hails from upper New York state, his roots in New England reach to 1656 when eight year old John Fay arrived at Boston aboard the “Speedwell,” the ill-fated sister ship to the Mayflower. He has spent most of his life on and around the water. “I started working on boats and outboard motors when I was 12 or 13,” he said. As a high school student in Connecticut, he worked the second shift at Electric Boat in Groton. “I began as a tin knocker,” he recalled, “and worked on the Nautilus and the George Washington. One of my school mates was the daughter of the skipper of the Nautilus when it went under the North Pole.” Fay was working on boats in Laconia in September 1977 when he spotted a little advertisement in The Evening Citizen for a dam operator to replace Bill Marshall, who was retiring after 30 years on the job. “I moved from one end of Fore Street to the other,” he said. As for his retirement, Fay said only that he will be spending more time with his son Bobby and daughter Leeann and especially granddaughter Meredith and grandson Dawson, while conceding “there’s always a boat in it somewhere.” Yesterday, on the eve of Fay’s retirement, the water in Lake Winnipesaukee stood at 504.32 inches, exactly “full reservoir.”

SCOUTS from page one Bell were taking shelter under a tarp during a quick-moving thunderstorm that rumbled through the area around 7 p.m. A lightening strike on a nearby pine tree knocked a few of the boys off their feet and most, including three counselors, were burned to some extent by the strike. All 26 were seen by area hospitals. The Associated Press reported a Boy Scout spokesman as saying that on Tuesday the only physical evidence of the scout’s close call on the hill top was a visible scar running from the top of tree to the ground, caused when the sap and water inside it boiled and split the tree open. Scout leader Gerry Boyle was nearby when the bolt hit and he told AP the ground shook. “Another 25 feet (closer) and it would have been a whole different story,” he said. Boyle said that some scouts began to feel burning, tingling sensations about 20 minutes after the strike. Minutes later more scourts developed the same symptoms and sensations and by night’s end all were affected. Spider-web like marks appeared on the arms and legs of some. Osborn said the first priority in any Boy Scout emergency is making sure everyone was safe and then getting the appropriate medical treatment for those who are injured, after which notification to the appropriate parent is made. He said as news of the incident got out, the Daniel Webster Council’s Facebook page lit up, eventually getting over 3,000 hits Monday night alone. After the strike, Belmont Fire Chief Dave Parenti said the scouts stayed sheltered for about 15 to 20 minutes while counselors identified the most seriously injured and prepared to get out of the woods. They were all taken by bus to Belmont Fire Station where they were evaluated and taken to various area hospitals. “Their attitude was unbelievable,” Parenti, himself a former scout leader who has camped at Camp Bell said referring to the scouts themselves. “Their behavior made our job 110 percent easier.” The actual triage operation at the Belmont Fire Station, which was chosen because it is staffed 24-7, is centrally located, and close to Camp Bell went “very very well,” said Parenti. He said that while the area fire depart-

ments haven’t done a mass-casualty drill in a while, the way Lakes Region Mutual Fire Aid is set up and the level of coordination enjoyed by local fire departments, meant all of the various emergency personnel who responded were familiar with each other. “We do train together on all kinds of things,” Parenti said, adding Belmont works so often with other communities that all of them speak the same terminology and know each other. “That closeness pays off,” Parenti said, who said he has been fire chief for three years and his team never ceases to amaze him. “I’m always impressed by their skills.” Parenti said the one area where he could have improved was media communications. He said was inundated by the media, as was to be expected, and should have asked for more help from his lieutenants and other fire chiefs who responded to help with incident coordination while he spoke with reporters. Lakes Region General Hospital handled eight of the boys while Franklin Regional Hospital took six of them. Disaster Preparedness Director John Prickett said hospitals in the central Granite State work together and individually preparing for high numbers of casualties from a single event. He said LRGH trains to handle up to 75 patients but, in cases like the one in Gilmanton Monday night, would prefer to spread the injured out to other area hospitals. He said the most common drill is to practice for a school bus accident. Prickett, who went to LRGH for Monday’s incident, said once the notice came to them, the ER staff began emptying out the beds. He said there were six people who were ready to be admitted so staff brought them to rooms. Another six were discharged leaving 12 open beds in the emergency room for the scouts. He said because of the prior planning and the warning given to them by the Boy Scouts it was “just another busy night” at the LRGH emergency room. He said the Belmont Fire Department did an excellent job of determining who needed emergency care the most and getting them to area emergency rooms. Prickett said there is always room from preceding page

MAJOR from page one tors to the fundraising reform. Russ Wilder of the BRCC said that altogether the four parcels cover 30 square miles of land crisscrossed by more than 70 miles of hiking trails. Three of the parcels lie on or near Mount Major in Alton. These include some 75 acres that straddle the two major trails leading up the mountain from the parking area off Route 11, owned by Dave Roberts, who has hiked, mapped, photographed and chronicled the Belknap Range for years. When the from preceding page for improvement and said communications with parents was one thing he felt needed work. He said the issue was there were around 200 scouts at Camp Bell and the Hidden Valley Scout Camp and, as news of the strike made the airwaves, parents were calling the hospital to see if their sons were involved. “Our after action area of improvement will be patient tracking,” he said. He echoed Parenti in complimenting the individual boy scouts on their calmness and professionalism. “My son is an Eagle Scout and scouting teaches leadership,” he said. Both the Belmont Fire Department and LRGH Preparedness staff will be conducting after-incident assessments. (Associated Press contributed to this story.)

property appeared on the market, Roberts purchased it with the intention of holding it for the SPNHF. The second property, 100 acres owned by the Jensen family, abuts the 60-acre Mount Major State Forest at the summit. The 455 acres to the west of the summit owned by the Hertel family is the largest of all the parcels. The fourth parcel, 331 acres in Gilford owned by Peggy Gage, Peter Meneghin and John Cullinane, lies on the eastern reach of the Belknap Range on the slope of Piper Mountain at the head of Moulton Valley, which is riven by the falling waters of Moulton Brook. The SPNHF intends to own and manage three parcels around Mount Major, while ownership and management of the property in Gilford will fall to the LRCT. Difley said that Mount Major rivals Mount Monadnock as the most frequently climbed peak in the state and more often than not is the first mountain young climbers tackle. Yet, she noted that most who scramble to the summit to capture the expansive views of Lake Winnipesaukee fail to realize that the trails cross privately owned land and their way to the top depends on the generosity of these landowners. Moreover, Difley stressed that like other “iconic landscapes” around the state, the Belknap Range representing a breathtaking backdrop the Lake Winnipesaukee, offering spectacular see next page

from preceding page views as well as as abundant recreational opportunities and wildlife habitat. Echoing Difley, Don Berry of the LRCT said that if these parcels change hands, the new owners could restrict or deny access. He added that the forests blanketing the Belknap Range, like those of the Ossipee Mountains, protect the water quality of Lake Winnipesaukee. “Protecting these these uplands has been a priority for many years,” he said. Difley said that the SPNHF has applied for several grants and expects to announce commitments for as much of $385,000 shortly. Wilder, who serves on the Alton Conservation Commission, said that a public hearing on a proposal to contribute to the project will be held on July 2 while Everett McLaughlin of the Gilford Conservation Commission said that it intends to invest toward the purchase of the Gage property. As Jack Savage, vice-president of SPNHF, extolled the popularity of Mount Major among youth organizations, a group of girls from a science camp in Raymond came to the trailhead. “I couldn’t have ordered this,” he remarked. “This is it,” said one of the counselors leading the group. “We don’t want it ever to change.” “We’re working on that,” Savage replied.

PILL from page one of state property by directing the Department of Administrative Services (DAS) to offer the property to the city for $10-million and, if the city declined, to offer it to Belknap County at “fair market value.” If neither the city nor the county accepted the offer, the department was instructed to contract with a broker and sell the property on the open market by May 1, 2013. The law stipulated that the governor and Executive Council must approve any sale. Senate Bill 19, sponsored by Sen. Jim Rausch (R-Derry) would have cut short this process and reverted to the procedure prescribed by statute (RSA 4:40). which requires review by the Council of Resources and Development, consisting of officials of major state agencies, and the approval of the Long Range Capital Planning and Utilization Committee, composed primarily of legislators. The committee must find a property is “no longer needed by the state” before recommending its sale to the governor and Executive Council, which must approve any transaction. However, Sen. Peter Bragdon (R-Milford), the president of the Senate, attached an amendment to the bill that would eliminate of one of three toll booths on the Everett Turnpike in Merrimack, one of the four towns in his Senate district. While residents of Merrimack have clamored for scuttling the toll booths for years, the Legislature has steadfastly refused. The House stripped Bragdon’s “poison pill” amendment and adopted the original bill, prompting the House and Senate to convene a committee of conference. The Senate conferees insisted on

eliminating the toll booth, their House counterparts refused and the bill failed. Mike Connor, Deputy Commissioner of Administrative Services, said yesterday that the contract with the broker has expired and the agency is not actively marketing the property. But, he said that the DAS would “entertain legitimate offers for the property,” just as it would for any other parcel owned by the state. City Councilor Matt Lahey (Ward 2), who has been at the forefront of the city’s effort to acquire the property, said that the failure of the legislation has left a window of opportunity to strike a deal under the original streamlined process. He said that the city has a variety of options and should consider structuring a package to propose to the state. — Michael Kitch HERNANDEZ from page 3 Hernandez’s attorney has said he will refrain from commenting on the substance of the investigation while it is ongoing. Reporters have been camped out for days at Hernandez’s sprawling home on the Rhode Island line, not far from the stadium where the Patriots play. They reported Tuesday that Hernandez got a visit from Boston defense attorney James Sultan. A spokesman for Michael Fee, the attorney who has been representing Hernandez, said Tuesday that Sultan’s firm, Rankin & Sultan, has been cocounsel on the case from the beginning.

Circus with long history coming to Laconia LACONIA — The Kelly Miller Bros. Circus, founded during the Depression, is marking another milestone this year as it celebrates its 75th anniversary. Founded in 1938 by Obert Miller and his sons, Kelly and Dores, this traditional tented circus has seen the passing of the millennium and still offers the same great family entertainment it presented in its humble beginnings. While the show in 1938 was little more than the Miller family, some ponies, and a couple of monkeys, they still moved about the country, as they do today, in trucks and went through the same routine each day of setting up and giving performances in a new town. The all new 2013 season will feature elephants, horses, llamas, camels, clowns, and a host of international circus stars, but each morning the public gets an altogether different kind of show as the circus lot comes to life. Circus trucks

pull onto the lot in the early morning hours, animals are unloaded, stakes are driven and elephants lift the giant Big Top into the air. Best of all, the public is welcomed to watch this entire spectacle free of charge. In fact, after the first of the four massive main poles that support the Big Top are set in place, the public is invited to step into the tent and see men and beasts complete their work. A knowledgeable circus veteran will be on hand to explain the action and answer questions about circus life.

This season the Kelly Miller Bros. Circus will travel nearly 10,000 miles and give performances over 200 cities and towns as it winds across North America from March through October. The all new edition promises a more exciting and extravagant exhibition than ever. Everyone is invited to step back in time as the Kelly Miller Bros. Circus brings the history and tradition of the old-fashioned circus to Laconia on Friday and Saturday, July 5 and 6, thanks to the sponsorship of the American Legion Post 1.

Performances will be at 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. on Friday and 2,5 and 7:30 p.m. on Saturday at the Memorial Park Field, and the tent raising will begin at approximately 9 a.m. on Friday. Advance tickets are available at American Legion Post 1- Laconia, Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce, Patrick’s Pub, Weirs Beach Citgo & The Citizen Office. Tickets bought in advance are $ 10 for Adults and $6 for children. Tickets purchased on show day at the Circus Box Office will be $15 for adults and $7 for children.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, June 26, 2013— Page 19


Dear Annie: We live in a quiet family neighborhood. Recently, a neighbor tried to locate the owner of a rental home next door in order to discuss a shared fence issue. When our neighbor could find no contact information through the city department of housing, he searched the Internet. He was shocked to discover that for the past 10 years, the owners have had a porn site registered at that rental home address. None of us wants a porn site associated with our neighborhood. How should we handle this? -- No Name or Location, Please Dear No Name: While we certainly understand your moral objections, these owners seem to be running a legal operation. Most web-based or home-based businesses are fine unless there are customers or employees coming to the house. There may be a requirement to have a business license, but that’s about it. You can contact a lawyer in your city to find out whether there are other possibilities, but we suspect there is nothing you can do, legally, about this. Sorry. Dear Annie: I share a small workspace with someone who constantly coughs, sneezes, clears her throat, blows her nose and grunts. Worse, she never covers her mouth, so I am surrounded by airborne germs all day. It’s extremely annoying and interferes with my ability to concentrate on my work. I know some of this is allergies, but she also doesn’t stay home when she is sick. I have offered cough drops and antihistamines, which she has refused. I suffer from allergies, as well, but try to keep my symptoms to myself. I have talked to my boss, but she won’t deal with it. Other co-workers are unwilling to switch desks with me (understandably). I used to like going to work, but I am ready to hand in my notice. What do you suggest? -- Had It with the Hacking Dear Had It: First be more direct with this co-worker, explaining your discomfort and asking her to please cover her nose and mouth. If that doesn’t help, can you complain to the

human resources department or a higher-up? Is it possible to move your desk? Would you be willing to wear a surgical mask or filter? Allergies can’t always be helped, but people should be considerate of one another. Dear Annie: I read your advice to “Nervous in Vermont” with much interest, being the parent of a transgender child myself. Even if an initial conversation may have seemed encouraging, it can be dangerous for trans kids to come out to their parents. Half of all homeless kids are LGBT, some as young as 12, and were kicked out of their parents’ home after coming out to their families. And a staggering number of trans kids end up committing suicide if met with scorn, shame or parental refusal to accept or discuss the subject. Coming out must be done eventually, but unless the child is nearing 18 or has contingency plans, one must take into consideration the things that can go wrong. I’d like to offer a couple of parental resources for such situations: Trans Youth Family Allies ( is a wonderful group of parents of trans kids that includes a support email list, as well as organized trainings for schools and other organizations. Gender Spectrum ( holds a yearly Gender Spectrum Family conference in Oakland, Calif., as well as a trans-masculine oriented Gender Spectrum conference in Seattle, Wash. These two groups can be of incredible assistance to parents after their kids have come out. We’ve found that going through the process of accepting our kids is not dissimilar to the grieving process. What is lost is not the person (thank goodness), but our hopes, dreams and plans for our child. We fear for them and their future. But we support each other and learn to move on, create new dreams and celebrate our children’s true identities. -- Sara

By Holiday Mathis

strongly indicates that this is the case. What you want doesn’t make sense, but you can’t change that you want it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Simplify, prioritize and eliminate what’s been cluttering your view. Once you define your values, much of what you prize will be represented in the physical world. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Meet your own needs. Once your needs are met, you won’t feel the need to grip the controls of life so tightly. You’ll be still and centered while those around you are caught up in a swirl of high drama. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll be recognized for an achievement. This won’t feel the way you anticipated it would. Consider why this is so. Perhaps you are being called to a different kind of achievement. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 26). This year features your strong sense of your unique talents. You’ll stand out from the group and be comfortable in this as you realize you’re headed for big things. You’ll gain expertise in July. In August, you’ll be the recipient of a grand gesture. In October, you’ll protect the integrity of something you hold sacred. Pisces and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 22, 35 and 18.

by Chad Carpenter

ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you create a habit, you no longer have to use your precious and limited daily reserves of willpower to execute that activity. Do it consistently until it becomes a natural process for you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Acting on behalf of another person, you will meet many interesting people. You’re a true friend, and you will try to connect your loved ones with the people who will be good for them to know. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Timing is crucial to your success. It’s not something you have to sense, it’s simple science. You know when you feel most alert, and you’ll make those times count by doing your hardest work then. CANCER (June 22-July 22). The people you love will try your patience. The reason they are able to do this so effectively is that they are the people you love. Your caring makes you vulnerable, and you wouldn’t have it any other way. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There is such a thing as too much inspiration. Ultimately what inspires and motivates you the most isn’t people trying to inspire and motivate you, it’s (SET ITAL) you (END ITAL) taking action and enjoying it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You require an overview perspective that will help you understand where you are. If only life were like those signs at the mall that read, “You are here.” A mentor can act as an objective observer and shed some light on this. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your success is not a function of ability or talent. You have plenty of both, but that is not the magic ingredient. You are competent and work hard, and that is the real reason you will succeed. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Don’t attempt to wing it today. Although your instincts are terrific, you will still do best when you have a structure that supports your goals. Turn to what has worked before. It will work again. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Does your soul have an agenda that your mind doesn’t know about? Today’s evidence

Yesterday’s Answer

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, June 26, 2013— Page 23

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Wednesday, June 26, the 177th day of 2013. There are 188 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On June 26, 1963, President John F. Kennedy visited West Berlin, where he delivered his famous speech expressing solidarity with the city’s residents, declaring: “Ich bin ein Berliner” (I am a Berliner). On this date: In 1483, Richard III began his reign as King of England (he was crowned the following month at Westminster Abbey). In 1870, the first section of Atlantic City, N.J.’s Boardwalk was opened to the public. In 1915, following a whirlwind courtship, poet T.S. Eliot married Vivienne Haigh-Wood in London. (The marriage proved disastrous, but the couple never divorced.) In 1925, Charlie Chaplin’s classic comedy “The Gold Rush” premiered at Grauman’s Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood. In 1936, President Franklin D. Roosevelt was nominated for a second term of office by delegates to the Democratic national convention in Philadelphia. In 1945, the charter of the United Nations was signed by 50 countries in San Francisco. In 1948, the Berlin Airlift began in earnest after the Soviet Union cut off land and water routes to the isolated western sector of Berlin. In 1950, President Harry S. Truman authorized the Air Force and Navy to enter the Korean conflict. In 1973, former White House counsel John W. Dean told the Senate Watergate Committee about an “enemies list” kept by the Nixon White House. In 1988, three people were killed when a new Airbus A320 jetliner carrying more than 130 people crashed into a forest during a demonstration at an air show in Mulhouse (muh-LOOZ’), France. In 1990, President George H.W. Bush went back on his “no-new-taxes” campaign pledge, conceding that tax increases would have to be included in any deficit-reduction package worked out with congressional negotiators. In 1993, President Bill Clinton announced the U.S. had launched missiles against Iraqi targets because of “compelling evidence” Iraq had plotted to assassinate former President George H.W. Bush. Ten years ago: A jury in Fort Worth, Texas, convicted former nurse’s aide Chante Mallard of murder for hitting a homeless man, Gregory Biggs, with her car, driving home with his mangled body lodged in the windshield and leaving him to die in her garage. (Mallard was later sentenced to 50 years in prison.) Five years ago: The U.S. Supreme Court struck down a handgun ban in the District of Columbia as it affirmed, 5-4, that an individual right to gun ownership existed. One year ago: Sen. Orrin Hatch won the GOP primary in Utah, handily turning back a challenge from tea party-backed Dan Liljenquist (lihl-IHN’kwihst). In Oklahoma, five-term Rep. John Sullivan fell to a tea party-supported candidate, Jim Bridenstine, who went on to win election to Congress. Essayist, author and filmmaker Nora Ephron, 71, died in New York.
