Boys & Girls Club & Genesis Behavioral Health competing for access to same federal money BY ROGER AMSDEN FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Belknap County Commissioners will have to decide between two community organizations seeking sponsorship for $500,000 federal Community Development Block Grants by sometime early next month.

Commissioners agreed to schedule a public hearing for July 10 on the requests from the Boys and Girls Club of the Lakes Region and Genesis Behavioral Health for projects the organizations told the commission Wednesday morning are vital to their missions. But the county can only

apply for one $500,000 grant at a time, although it has the option of splitting that amount between the two groups. Maggie Pritchard of Genesis, which is a regional mental health agency, serving Belknap and southern Grafton Counties, said the agency wants the grant so that it consolidate its

offices, currently located on Church Street and North Main Street in Laconia, in the former Southern New Hampshire University building at 22 Airport Way in Gilford next to Laconia Municipal Airport. She said that the property is available for $550,000 and it see GRANT page 8

Northern Pass to announce new route today

CONCORD (AP) — Northern Pass is announcing Thursday a new route for its proposed 180-mile, high-voltage power line originating in northern New Hampshire. The privately funded $1.2 billion Northern Pass project plans to build a line that would transmit 1,200 megawatts of Canadian hydroelectric power into New England, but it has run into strong opposition. Critics argue the power line’s towers along the route — especially in the North Country — would rise above the trees and would damage New Hampshire’s environment, lower property values and make the state less attractive to tourists. The Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests bought conservation easements in an attempt to block Northern Pass from securing a route. The project will announce a new route on Thursday. see PASS page 7

Patriot’s Hernandez charged with murder ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) — New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was arrested Wednesday and charged with murder in the shooting death of a friend prosecutors say had angered the NFL player at a nightclub a few days earlier by talking to the wrong people. Hernandez, 23, was taken from his North Attleborough home in handcuffs just over a week after Boston semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd’s bullet-riddled body was found in an industrial park a mile away. Less than two hours after the arrest, the Patriots announced they had cut Hernandez, a 2011 Pro Bowl selection who signed a five-year contract last summer worth $40 million. Lloyd was a 27-year-old athlete with the Boston Bandits who was dating the

sister of Hernandez’s fiancee. He was shot multiple times on a secluded gravel road, authorities said. Hernandez “drove the victim to that remote spot, and then he orchestrated his execution,” prosecutor Bill McCauley said. If convicted, Hernandez could get life in prison without parole. “It is at bottom a circumstantial case. It is not a strong case,” his attorney, Michael Fee, said at a court hearing during which Hernandez was ordered held without bail on murder charges and five weapons counts. Lloyd’s family members cried and hugged as the prosecutor outlined the killing. Two were so overcome with emotion that they had to leave the courtroom. McCauley said the slaying stemmed

from a night out at a Boston club called Rumor on June 14. He said Hernandez was upset about certain things, including that Lloyd had talked to some people Hernandez “had troubles with.” The prosecutor did not elaborate. Two days later, McCauley said, on the night of June 16, Hernandez texted two friends from out of state and asked them to hurry back to Massachusetts. Surveillance footage from Hernandez’s home showed him leaving with a gun, and he told someone in the house that he was upset and couldn’t trust anyone anymore, the prosecutor said. The three men picked up Lloyd at his home around 2:30 a.m., according to authorities. As they drove around in their see HERNANDEZ page 8

WASHINGTON (AP) — In a historic day for gay rights, the Supreme Court gave the nation’s legally married gay couples equal federal footing with all other married Americans on Wednesday and also cleared the way for same-sex marriages to resume in California. In deciding its first cases on the issue, the high court did not issue the sweeping declaration sought by gay rights advocates that would have allowed same-sex couples to marry anywhere in the country. But in two rulings, both by bare 5-4 majorities, the justices gave gay marriage supporters

encouragement in confronting the nationwide patchwork of laws that outlaw such unions in roughly three dozen states. Gay-rights supporters cheered and hugged outside the court. Opponents said they mourned the rulings and vowed to keep up their fight. In the first of the narrow rulings in its final session of the term, the court wiped away part of a federal anti-gay marriage law, the Defense of Marriage Act, that has kept legally married same-sex couples from receiving tax, health and pension benefits that are otherwise available to

married couples. Justice Anthony Kennedy, joined by the four liberal justices, said the purpose of the law was to impose a disadvantage and “a stigma upon all who enter into same-sex marriages made lawful by the unquestioned authority of the states.” President Barack Obama praised the court’s ruling against the federal marriage act, labeling the law “discrimination enshrined in law.” “It treated loving, committed gay and lesbian couples as a separate and lesser see GAY MARRIAGE page 4

Concord pulls out of regional trash disposal cooperative but Laconia & Gilford remain By Michael Kitch BOW — When the Concord Regional Solid Waste/ Resource Recovery Cooperative (coop) met here last evening, the city of Concord and six towns — Belmont, Bradford, Dunbarton, Gilmanton, Henniker and Pembroke — withdrew from the coop by rejecting the contract negotiated with Wheelabrator Concord Company. Nineteen municipalities, including Laconia and Gilford, approved new deal, which run until 2022. Earlier this month, the Laconia City Council, at the recommendation of City Manager Scott Myers, unanimously voted to accept the coop’s proposed new contract with Wheelabrator, which operates the waste-to-energy facility at Penacook. Myers told the

council that after weighing the tipping fees at alternative disposal sites and negotiating reduced haulage costs with Waste Management, he concluded the agreement best served the city’s interests. Gilford also chose to accept the coop contract. Although the town has no curbside collection, residents or contractors haul trash to the Laconia Transfer Station, from where its is taken to the Wheelabrator incinerator in Penacook. In 2012, Laconia delivered 12,408 tons of trash, or 14-percent of the 86,386 tons of solid waste delivered by the 25 members of the coop while Gilford accounted for 4,837 tons, or 6-percent of the total. The contract anticipated Concord’s decision. In 2012 Concord represented 27,128 tons, or 31-percent, The contract specified that if Concord agreed

to the contract, the coop members must deliver at least 75-percent of the current tonnage of 87,000 tons. Without Concord, the remaining members must deliver only 58.5-percent of current tonnage. Director of Public Works Paul Moynihan, who represents Laconia at the coop, said that without Concord and the six towns the remaining tonnage represents 55.04-percent of the current total, shy of the amount specified by the contract. However, he said that Jim Presher, executive director of the coop, and members of the team that negotiated the contract indicated that Wheelabrator may be open to accepting the arrangement despite the shortfall in tonnage. The members of the coop authorized the chairman, Bill Harman of Weare, to enter a contract with Wheelabrator.

GAY MARRIAGE from page 2 class of people,” Obama said in a statement. “The Supreme Court has righted that wrong, and our country is better off for it.” House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said he was disappointed in the outcome of the federal marriage case and hoped states continue to define marriage as the union of a man and a woman. Boehner, as speaker, had stepped in as the main defender of the law before the court after the Obama administration declined to defend it. The other case, dealing with California’s constitutional ban on same-sex marriage, was resolved by an unusual lineup of justices in a technical legal fashion that said nothing about gay marriage. But the effect was to leave in place a trial court’s declaration that

California’s Proposition 8 ban was unconstitutional. Gov. Jerry Brown quickly ordered that marriage licenses be issued to gay couples as soon as a federal appeals court lifts its hold on the lower court ruling. That will take least 25 days, the appeals court said. California, where gay marriage was briefly legal in 2008, would be the 13th state, along with the District of Columbia, to allow same-sex couples to marry and would raise the share of the U.S. population in gay marriage states to 30 percent. Six states have adopted same-sex marriage in the past year, amid a rapid evolution in public opinion that now shows majority support for the right to marry in most polls. The 12 other states are Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont

and Washington. The day’s rulings are clear for people who were married and live in states that allow same-sex marriage. They now are eligible for federal benefits. The picture is more complicated for same-sex couples who traveled to another state to get married, or who have moved from a gay marriage state since being wed. Their eligibility depends on the benefits they are seeking. For instance, immigration law focuses on where people were married, not where they live. But eligibility for Social Security survivor benefits basically depend on where a couple is living when a spouse dies. This confusing array of regulations is reflected see next page

Commissioners say they’re following law, refer protest about transfers to their lawyer By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Belknap County Commissioners decided Wednesday to refer a letter they have received from an attorney representing the Belknap County Convention to their own attorney rather than respond directly. ‘’It was nothing but demands, a list of a dozen demands,’’ said Commissioner Steven Nedeau of the letter from attorney David Horan, who was hired by the convention by a 9-7 vote in April to represent the county legislative body in its dispute with the commissioners over who has control over transferring monies between line items in the county budget. Commissioners said the letter included a request from attorney Horan to meet with the county’s attorney and Commissioner Ed Philpot, himself an attorney, said that the commission should not reply to the letter but leave the matter in the hands of its own attorney. ‘’We should defer to our attorney and let him meet with their attorney. The attorneys are not authorized to do anything without approval. But we should allow them to have that conversation with our attorney and get it resolved,’’ said Philpot. The commission and the convention have been at odds over who has line item control over each and every item in the county budget, with the convention asserting that it does have that transfer power while the commission believes that authority is limited to the broad subtotals that define departments, such as the nursing home. Earlier this year the commission made a number of budget transfers after the convention cuts its $26.2 million budget request by $600,000. At that time commissioners, armed with a legal opinion from an attorney they had consulted, said they were confident that they have the power to move the funds within each department in order to meet the contractual obligations the county has in funding health insurance, sick day bonus and longevity which are specified in the union contracts with employees which are still in force. from preceding page more broadly in the disparate treatment of gay couples between states. And the court’s decision did not touch on another part of the federal marriage law that says a state does not have to recognize a samesex marriage performed elsewhere. Indeed, the outcome of the cases had supporters of gay marriage already anticipating their next trip to the high court, which they reason will be needed to legalize same-sex unions in all 50 states. The Human Rights Campaign’s president, Chad Griffin, said his goal is to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide within five years through a combination of ballot measures, court challenges and expansion of anti-discrimination laws. The rulings came 10 years to the day after the court’s Lawrence v. Texas decision that struck down state bans on gay sex. In his dissent at the time, Justice Antonin Scalia predicted the ruling would lead to same-sex marriage. On Wednesday, Scalia issued another pungent dissent in the Defense of Marriage Act case in which he made a new prediction that the ruling would be used to upend state restrictions on marriage. Kennedy’s majority opinion insisted the decision was limited to legally married same-sex couples. Scalia read aloud in a packed courtroom that included the two couples who sued for the right to marry in California. On the bench, Justice Elena Kagan, who voted to strike down DOMA, watched Scalia impassively as he read. “It takes real cheek for today’s majority to assure us, as it is going out the door, that a constitutional requirement to give formal recognition to same-sex marriage is not at issue here_when what has preceded that assurance is a lecture on how superior the majority’s moral judgment in favor of same-sex marriage is to the Congress’ hateful moral judgment against it. I promise you this: The only thing that will ‘confine’ the court’s holding is its sense of what it can get away with,” Scalia said.

Commissioners said the convention did not allocate enough money to cover the level of health insurance the county is obligated to pay for each employee and that if transfers were not allowed into the health insurance accounts, the only other option would have been layoffs to get the number of employees down to a level where each received the required level of benefit. The convention hired Horan after those transfers, which some convention members characterized at public meetings as being illegal. On Monday the convention held a closed-door session with Horan which lasted nearly a half hour. Belknap County Convention Chairman Colette Worsman (R-Meredith) said during an Executive Committee meeting that there were 27 accounts for which the convention budget included no funds that the commission has spent money from so far this year. She said that she had counted ‘’a total of 91 items

which they have moved’’ and that seven departments have fund totals different from what the delegation voted. Executive Committee Chairman Rep. Frank Tilton (R-Laconia) said that funds ‘’cannot be moved without our authority and that the county treasurer cannot sign checks without our authority.’’ But commissioners on Wednesday morning, citing state law, said that Tilton is wrong. They said that section 29:1 under Title II Counties, reads ‘’the county treasurer shall have custody of all moneys belonging to the county, and shall pay out the same only upon orders of the commissioners.’’ Commissioners also said Section 29:5 of Chapter 29 reads ‘’The order of the county commissioners shall be a sufficient voucher for the payment of assisted person accounts, appropriations by the county convention and all other sums for which the county may be chargeable.’’

Help paying for Rx There is a continuum of services available to help those in need of prescription medicines. Most assistance programs measure individual or household income based on the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) guidelines. Income is the determining factor in whether or not assistance will be provided . . . specifically, income as a percentage of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL). The individual poverty level for 2013 is $11,490. In multiple person households, add $4,020 for each additional person. For example, a family of four would have up to $23,550 in combined income and be considered at or below the poverty level. ( poverty/13poverty.cfm) Virtually every drug company has what is called a Patient Assistance Program. The rules vary from company to company as most will allow income of 200 percent of the poverty level to qualify for free medicines, while some other drug companies allow up to 300 percent, and a few up to 400 percent of the FPL. Therefore, a family of four could have income at 200 percent of the poverty level ($47,100) and probably qualify for medicines from almost any pharmaceutical company. Qualifying income for a family of four at 300 percent would be $70,650, and at 400 percent $94,200. While these programs are not age dependent, some of the drug companies do require that those who are Medicare (Part D) eligible, first be denied “extra help” (low income support) from the Social Security Administration. There is an excellent website — — that identifies drug companies, the medicines they manufacture, and the conditions each sets for providing patient assistance. Individuals who are Internet savvy, and who may be on a limited number of medicines, may access the Needy Meds website and get the information they need to manage their own applications. For most people, however, dealing with multiple drug companies, their differing requirements, and in some cases, differing ordering intervals, can get to be a bit confusing. Because of that, many people turn to programs like LRGHealthcare’s Medication Connection Program, or the Medication Bridge Programs at other hospitals around the state. The normal process for accessing one of these programs is for the Primary Care Provider (PCP) to refer the patient to the program at the

medical facility to which he or she is associated, and to provide a copy of the patient’s medication list. Once the referral is received, the program manager will send an application to the patient, along with a request for the financial and other information required by the drug companies who offer the medicines on the list the PCP has provided. When the program manager receives the information back from the patient, his or her experience can generally tell whether or not the patient meets the criteria specified by the drug companies involved. If it appears that they will accept the patient’s application, the program manager obtains the necessary prescriptions from the PCP, arranges the information in the form and structure required by each of the involved drug companies, and sends it in to them. A patient’s confidential file is then established and copies of all the pertinent information is retained. Upon approval from each involved company, the medicines for the patient are normally sent directly to the PCP’s office, where the patient can pick them up. As most medicines are ordered in three month intervals, the PCP prescriptions usually call for a 90 day supply with three refills. The program manager establishes the re-order dates for each medicine, normally in a computerized file. The medicines are reordered at the appropriate time and, after the third refill is ordered, the re-application process is initiated. That process requires the patient to provide updated financial information to be sent to each of the involved companies. There are a number of companies that offer drug discounts cards or coupons. Those who may have accessed the website for www. might have noticed a number of medicines that offered coupons. To view the entire list of coupons that are available that provide a discount, log into http:// function=list&letter=a. Needy meds also offers its own, free discount card that may be used, but there are a few restrictions, such as it can’t be combined with insurance. For more detailed information log into http:// index.htm . A follow-on to this article will provide additional information on a number of addition resources that are available to help people receive their medicines. The article is planned to run on July 9.

LETTERS Plan presented for a new county jail is simply not affordable To The Daily Sun, It will be interesting to see what the candidates for mayor of Laconia will have to say if they are asked about support for a new county prison. After being a part of a slug-fest over a mere 1.3 million dollar increase in the 2013 budget, it should be interesting to see how an increase of over five million dollars a year, every year into the foreseeable future, will play out. One of the presenters Monday night, Laura Maiello, is quoted as citing a ‘high rate of recidivism” as one reason to support the proposed new prison. What was glossed over was that most new incarcerations are not because of the commission of a new crime but because of violations of parole or probation. As the commissioners noted, the county rate of recidivism as actually on the decline. In other jurisdictions, community based parole and

probation is supervised by a district attorney, which has led to successful outcomes. Perhaps we should consider the abilities of our own capable county attorney and examine this approach. It is troubling that the new state prison for women has a cost authorization of thirty-eight million dollars for 224 beds, or less than $169,000 a bed, while the proposed new county prison would have a cost of at least $236,000 per bed. Perhaps there is a need to expand and renovate the existing prison but the plan which was presented is unaffordable. We need to have an unbiased assessment of the existing physical plant before we proceed any further and the process to accommodate that evaluation needs to be fair, honest and open. Rep. Dick Burchell Belmont District 5 Laconia

With emphasis on school sports, we will slip further behind To The Daily Sun, Laconia High School students continues to fail at math. Their proficiency level is stalled at about 22 percent. The same level prevails across the state. This dismal average has continued year after year with no discernible effort made to improve our students ability to compete! (None that has had any record of success!) This seeming indifference is overshadowed by the school’s emphasis on games and sports. (Look at the trophies in the lobby.) Plainly put, this constitutes a grievous misconception that this prevailing inequity can continue even as we struggle to gain employment in a world market-place! We have a fatal attraction to games that puts academic achievement in near limbo status! Scholastic success doesn’t have anywhere near the acclaim, attention and euphoria gen-

Most of the young boys playing football on the new state-of-the-art field cannot pass mathematics or science exams! Does that make any sense whatsoever? We are not competitive with Asians, they will garner the high-tech jobs, and unless we make a drastic changes in our evaluation, we will slip further behind most industrial nations as we become a service-oriented country on a much lower wage scale! Unless we bite-the-bullet and admit we are haphazard and indifferent to meaningful change in education, we may, in future years, be dominated by elitist-military corporations that further divide people into two classes: the poor and ignorant and the wealthy!

Need to go back to recognizing bicycle riders as pedestrians To The Daily Sun, Back during WWII, gas rationing led to many people riding bikes, and too many accidents. The quick cure was to recognize that bikes are more like pedestrians than cars, so should ride on left side of the road facing auto traffic, so they can see and avoid

danger from cars and trucks. That worked excellently. Sometime later, the insanity of treating bike riders as cars got established, resulting in many deaths and injuries. The path of a bike is highly unpresee next page

LETTERS Low skilled immigrants pay less in taxes than value of benefits To the editor, Let’s be frank, our politicians are trying to force Comprehensive Immigration Reform down our throats because it benefits the politicians themselves, even though it hurts most Americans. With 20 million unemployed or underemployed Americans, we don’t need the low skilled, poorly educated immigrant workers who flood this labor pool driving down wages and taking jobs Americans desperately need. They tell us this cheap immigrant labor keeps prices down, for example, that immigrants provide us with cheap lettuce and apples because Americans won’t pick fruits and vegetables for the average farm worker pay of about $8.65 per hour. But many Americans already work at the current wages, so many more unemployed or underemployed Americans would take jobs held by illegals if the jobs paid more. Employers would have to pay more if the labor market was not flooded with low skilled (immigrant) workers. Labor is only about 10 percent of the produce cost so doubling farm labor pay would provide a decent income to workers at only a minor cost to consumers. (Small compared to the food stamp program cost for each net income tax payer of about $1066/year.) The worst cost of illegal immigration is that many Americans are victims of accidents and violent crimes committed by people who shouldn’t even be here. The next worst cost is probably to the poverty, depression and dependency that harms so many low skilled Americans because of illegal aliens. But, let’s consider the financial cost of this “cheap” labor. Each average illegal immigrant household receives approximately $16,000 more in benefits that it pays in taxes (legal immigrants receive more). Assuming two workers per household, that works out to about $4/ hour. In addition, Americans, who lose jobs to illegal workers, receive various unemployment and welfare benefits that average about $30,000. That is

a cost to the taxpayer of about $14.50 per hour. Adding the above, the true cost of allowing a farmer to hire cheap illegal workers is $27.15 per hour, not just the $8.65 paid by the farmer. Even $27.15 understates the real cost. It doesn’t include the cost due to depressed wages, the cost of imprisoning violent criminal immigrants, and the cost of property stolen by illegal alien criminals; I don’t know how to estimate these and other real costs. The low wages paid to illegal workers allow farmers and other employers to earn big profits. Portions of those profits go to taxes and to influence politicians to continue taxing other Americans to subsidize their businesses. A recent study by the OECD says that immigrants, all together, annually cost American taxpayers $140,000,000,000 more than they pay in taxes. High skilled immigrants pay more taxes than they receive in benefits. Low skilled workers take far more in benefits than they pay in taxes. The Senate’s Comprehensive Immigration Reform bill will allow 7 unskilled immigrants for every high skilled immigrant worker, thus this bill will create a huge additional cost for American taxpayers. The beneficiaries of the Senate’s Comprehensive Immigration Reform bill will be politicians, employers, and special interest groups. The claims they are making are intended to deceive us. We’d be stupid to believe their promises again. The vast majority of the American people will continue to be victimized by immigrant criminals, competition from surplus and illegal labor that lowers wages or takes our jobs, and from increased taxation to subsidize rich people and benefit the politicians. Call, write, or e-mail Senators Ayotte and Shaheen and your congresswoman and demand that they oppose this Comprehensive Immigration Reform Bill. Tell them to just enforce current immigration laws.

Liberals can’t comprehend difference between opinion & lie To The Daily Sun, Starting out this week in The Sun, it appears I’ve been taken out to the wood shed once again by letters from Henry Osmer and L.J. Siden. Henry asks, what I have ever done for America? Well gee Henry, I’m sorry, but I just don’t have a great long list of sterling accomplishments to present to you. The sorry fact is that I am very average, much like millions and millions of other average Americans. I have never done anything of great merit nor have I done anything of great disrepute. I’m just average, so from preceding page dictable, since steering is also a part of balancing. The slower they go the more unpredictable the path. Let’s all spread the word and get government to correct the rules to make bike riding Safe! Jack Stephenson Gilford

by that measure do you judge that I have no right to an opinion or more importantly no right to express my opinions? Seems that tends to be the general feeling I get from you and many others on the left. L.J. Siden appears to share a trait with Bernadette Loesch and others on the left — they fail to comprehend the difference between an opinion and a lie. Anyone who dares disagree with them must be lying. They allow for no other possibilities and in most instances they attribute this to racism. It’s all nonsense of course. L.J. makes his case that no one is trying or would be able to deny Americans their 2nd amendment rights, yet just a couple of months ago Diane Feinstein, on a Sunday morning TV show, said if she had the votes it would be turn them in Mr. and Mrs. America. She was talking about our guns, not big gulp drinks. see next page

Street performers approved by City Council for trial period of 30 days By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — The sound of singing, strumming and drumming may soon be heard on the boardwalk at The Weirs as well as in parks and street corners around the city following the decision of the City Council this week to permit William LeClair and Joe Casellas to perform on municipal property for a trial period of 30 days. They will accept tips. In a letter requesting permission to perform, LeClair, a guitarist, explained that he and Casellas, who plays bongos, wished to use an amplifier for harmonics and mixing, noting that it is designed for use in parks and on streets. City Manager Scott Myers told the councilors that but for the amplifier the duo needed no permission to play on municipal property so long as they did not erect a tent, offer anything for sale or obstruct vehicular or foot traffic. However, because LeClair wants to use an amplifier, he requires approval from the council to seek loudspeaker and entertainment permits from the Licensing Board.

Councilor Ava Doyle (Ward 1), who represents The Weirs, said that residents and businesses at the resort welcomed street performers — jugglers, stilt walkers, mimes and others as well as musicians. However, she reminded her colleagues that there has been much controversy among owners of entertainment venues and innkeepers about noise at night and expressed concern about buskers competing with businesses that booked entertainment. She suggested approving a trial period of 30 days and limiting the hours, perhaps to between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. LeClair told the council that he did not expect to play into the night and certainly not beyond 8 p.m. If the permits are granted, he said the two intend to play popular songs from the 1960s and 1970s along with some inspirational and original numbers, primarily in the afternoon on weekends. Myers said that LeClair could be expected to apply “common sense” and in approving his request for a 30-day trial period, the council chose not to impose time limits.

New York man vacationing in Center Harbor becomes disoriented on walk

CENTER HARBOR — A 79-year-old man with Alzheimer’s walked about three miles from his vacation home Tuesday afternoon while area police and members of the N.H. Department of Fish and Game searched for him. The New York man was reported missing by his wife at 4:55 p.m. who said she had taken a nap and he had gone out to walk the dog but hadn’t returned yet. He had been gone about an hour before search crews were called.

The couple was staying in a cabin on Sturtevant Beach Road and the man was unfamiliar with the area. At 6:30 p.m. a resident of Mead Farm Road called to report an elderly man was at her home that he didn’t know his name and seemed disoriented. Search crews confirmed it was the lost man. He was checked out by medical crews and returned to his cabin.

New Hampton woman charged with doctor ‘shopping’ CONCORD — After a six-month investigation by the N.H. State Police Drug Diversion Section, six people have been charged with obtaining controlled drugs by fraud. Two, including a New Hampton resident, were charged with “doctor shopping” or going to different doctors to obtain prescription medication for the same alleged illness and one was charged with altering a prescription. Charged were Susan Pignato, 50, of 1 Linden Fields Road in Exeter; Michelle Darwish, 49, of 760B Route

16 in Ossipee; Stephanie Mann, 37, of 153 Middlesex Road in Merrimack, John Fabiano, 27, of 88 West Sixth Street in Lowell; Patricia Drake, 46, of Route 132 North #590 in New Hampton and Julie Gilbody, 47, of 11 Allds Road in Nashua. Gilbody faces five counts of obtaining controlled drugs by fraud. All were released on personal recognizance bail and given arraignment dates in their home area’s respective circuit courts.

PASS from page 2 Former Sen. Judd Gregg, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen and Gov. Maggie Hassan recently added their voices to those opposing any attempt to traverse the Connecticut Lakes headwaters that Shaheen and Gregg worked to protect. The Legislature debated a series of bills this year aimed at slowing down or stopping construction. None that would stop the project survived. New Hampshire businessmen objected that passing laws aimed at hindering Northern Pass could affect unrelated projects. Supporters argue the Canadian

power would reduce the need for electricity from fossil fuel sources that produce carbon emissions and would provide property tax revenue from Northern Pass facilities to the communities the line passes through. They also say it would provide jobs for New Hampshire. Lawmakers did agree to take another look at the criteria a special siting committee uses to evaluate projects like Northern Pass as well as wind power projects that critics argue also damage New Hampshire’s image as a tourist state. see next page

GRANT from page one will take $1.9 million to renovate it. Pritchard said that Genesis is also in the running for state funds for the establishment of a 16-bed crisis unit which would serve the area north of Concord and would relieve some of the pressure on hospitals like Lakes Region General in Laconia, where three weeks ago 10 of the 17 emergency bays were occupied by people waiting for beds at the New Hampshire State (mental) Hospital. Asked by Commissioner Steven Nedeau how confident she was that Laconia would become the site of a crisis center, Pritchard said that the Legislature has shown that ‘’it wants to move ahead on this’’ and that she is reasonably confident. ‘’I’m not a gambling woman. I wear a helmet when riding a motorcycle

and only play the quarter machines when I’m in Las Vegas. But I think chances are good,’’ said Pritchard. Commissioner John Thomas wondered about the difficulty for the agency’s clients might have in getting to the airport location and Pritchard said that transportation would be available for those clients from the city’s downtown area,. She said that discussions about the use of the building had already been held with the Laconia Airport Authority and the Gilford Zoning Board of Adjustment. Genesis is going through the county, rather than the Town of Gilford, to obtain the grant because Gilford’s higher than average family income makes it less likely that it would qualify for a CDBG grant. Speaking on behalf of the Laconia

Boys & Girls Club, board chairman Al Posnack said that the club recently purchased the St. James Episcopal Church building for $700,000 and has so far paid $190,000 of that amount and would use the money to pay off the $510,000 balance. ‘’Our goal is not to have a mortgage,’’ said Posnack, who said that the club is also looking to raise $1.5 million for renovations to the building and grounds through a capital fund drive. Board member Russ Thibault said the club is ‘’preventive medicine in

alleviating down the road problems’’ and serves more than just Laconia. Club Executive Director Cheryl Avery said the club now has a 17,000square foot-facility, seven times larger than its previous home, and is looking to have a major impact on the community through its expanded programs.. Commissioners plan to meet next Tuesday afternoon, following the County Corrections Committee meeting, to discuss the grant requests and public hearing.

A short time later, Hernandez returned to his house, and he and one of the other men were seen on his home surveillance system holding guns, McCauley said.

Attempted burglary nets 18-year-old 15 months in prison By Gail OBer

LACONIA — An 18-year-old man will serve a year and three months in the New Hampshire State Prison for attempted burglary for breaking the glass at Curious Goods on Main Street in Laconia with an intent to steal paraphernalia and resell it. Brandon Heacox, 18, of 6 Cumberland Road Apt. 34 pleaded guilty yesterday in Belknap County Superior Court and was sentenced to 1 1/2 to 3 years with three months suspended. Heacox also pleaded guilty to two counts of receiving stolen property for taking a compound bow and a handgun from a hunter’s truck in Gilford. He was sentenced to two consecutive sentences of 3 1/2 to 7 years — all suspended pending his good behavior. He was credited with 279 days of pre-trial confinement credit. Initially, Judge James O’Neill expressed a little trepidation about the seemingly light sentence for two crimes involving the theft and subsequent sale of dangerous weapons. Heacox had sold the compound box to a third party who was associated with a Tilton Pawn Shop and he traded the gun for an Xbox with one of his friends — what was willing to testify at Heacox’s trial.

Public Defender Alison Schwartz said her client was 17 when he committed the crimes and had just turned 18. She said he had participated in every program available to him while in the Belknap County Jail, had earned his GED, went to chapel and had no disciplinary issues. She said he didn’t want his life to continue down the same path that it was and he now realizes his behavior was staring to tear his family apart. Two members of Heacox’s family were in court with him and Schwartz said they were prepared to help him when his incarceration period ends. Schwartz also pointed out that Heacox faces an additional 20 years of prison time should he not be of good behavior upon his release. “It’s not too late for him,” she said. Heacox read from a prepared statement and took full responsibility for his actions. He told O’Neill that “his journey to self-healing was not quite to its end yet” but that his time in prison would be spent learning from his mistakes and becoming a better person. O’Neill asked him to tell him why he should accept the proposed sentence and Heacox said, “I apologize and hope I can make it up.” see next page

from preceding page after the slaying. Investigators did not specify who fired the shots. They did not identify the two other people who were with Hernandez or say whether they were under arrest. According to McCauley, Hernandez and his friends later returned the car to the rental agency, and Hernandez offered the attendant a piece of blue chewing gum. She found a .45-caliber shell casing and a piece of what appeared to be chewed blue gum in the car and threw them out. Later, investigators retrieved the items from a trash bin, and the casing matched others found where Lloyd was killed, McCauley said. The two weapons seen on the surveillance footage have not been found, he said. In arguing unsuccessfully for bail, Hernandez’s attorney said the athlete is unlikely to flee, is a homeowner, and lives with his fiancee and an 8-monthold baby. He also said Hernandez had never been accused of a violent crime. As he was led from his home in the morning, Hernandez was wearing a white V-neck T-shirt, with his arms inside the shirt and behind his back. He spit into some bushes on his way to a police cruiser. Later, as he was taken from the North Attleborough police station to court, two dozen supporters cheered, some yelling, “We love you, Aaron!” “Words cannot express the disappointment we feel

knowing that one of our players was arrested as a result of this investigation,” the Patriots said in a statement announcing he had been cut. The team added: “We realize that law enforcement investigations into this matter are ongoing. We support their efforts and respect the process. At this time, we believe this transaction is simply the right thing to do.” The Patriots drafted Hernandez, who is originally from Bristol, Conn., in 2010 out of the University of Florida, where he was an All-American. During the draft, one team said it wouldn’t take him under any circumstances, and he was passed over by one club after another before New England picked him in the fourth round. Afterward, Hernandez said he had failed a drug test in college — reportedly for marijuana — and was up front with teams about it. In other off-the-field troubles, a Florida man filed a lawsuit last week claiming Hernandez shot him in the face after they argued at a strip club in February. And The Boston Globe reported that Hernandez lost his temper and threatened a teammate during an argument in the team’s weight room shortly after he was drafted. Hernandez became a father on Nov. 6 and said he intended to change his ways: “Now, another one is looking up to me. I can’t just be young and reckless Aaron no more. I’m going to try to do the right things.”

N.H. House & Senate approve compromise budget for next 2 years of $10.7 billion CONCORD (AP) — The New Hampshire Legislature passed a $10.7 billion bipartisan budget Wednesday that eases the waiting time for services to the disabled and mentally ill, but puts off a decision on whether to expand Medicaid to 58,000 poor adults. The Senate voted unanimously to pass the budget, followed by the House passing each bill in the twobill package by over 300 votes. “The large, bipartisan support for the priorities in this budget — caring for our most vulnerable, public PUNCH from page one Officer Michael Armstrong, who underwent surgery to repair his nose and eye socket, told Johnstone that he didn’t take the assault personally. “What you did was assault a police officer,” he said. “Your actions show no regard for public safety.” “We are not your punching bag for you to take out your aggression...,” Armstrong told him. “But we will continue to do our jobs.” Speaking on behalf on Johnstone were his father, mother, his AA sponsor, and one of his middle school teachers. They, along with his lawyer John Bresaw, pleaded with Judge James O’Neill to sentence Johnstone to 12 months in the Belknap County House of Corrections and not send him to the New Hampshire State Prison. “I’m asking you not to let society fail him as I failed him as a mother,” said Valerie Johnstone who was weeping openly and barely able to speak. She apologized to Armstrong and told him she has a nephew in law enforcement and couldn’t “imagine the call received by Mrs. Armstrong saying her husband was hurt.” All said Johnstone was developmentally disabled, had learning disabilities, and had struggled in school. They said he was bullied by his peers in school mostly because of his sister who was born from preceding page O’Neill told him he should be grateful for his family and their support of him.

The package creates a nine-member commission to study expanding Medicaid and issue a report Oct. 15. Hassan has said a special legislative session may be needed in the fall to authorize expanding Medicaid under the new federal health care law. Republicans praised the budget for containing no

All said Johnstone’s actions were inexcusable and agreed he should be punished, but rehabilitated through the programs offered at the county jail. Karen Muthersbaugh, his middle school special education teacher, said she has stayed in touch with Johnstone and his family since he was in her middle school class. She said he is very protective of those who accept him. “He’s always trying to defend someone and that may have come into play here,” she said. Affidavits filed with the court by police said Johnstone tried to interfere with Armstrong when the officer went to place his friend and fellow passenger in the car Abdul Kamara into protective custody. Kamara is serving a 1 1/2 to 4 years sentence in the N.H. State Prison for his role in the altercation. The two struggled and when Armstrong went to take him to the ground, Johnstone punched him in the face. Johnstone continued to struggle until he was zapped by a Taser by another officer. Murthersburgh said Johnstone has “a lot of heart and is super kind. She also said he is a “hero to his sister.” After hearing from both sides, O’Neill recessed court for about five minutes while he went in chambers to contemplate his decision. He told Johnstone that while the developmental disorders and the bullying could be considered mitigating factors, he agreed with the 1 1/2 to 5 years sentence requested by the state because ultimately he “assaulted and severely injured a Laconia Police Officer who was doing the job he was sworn to do.”

Democrats praised it for providing more aid to colleges and college scholarships and increasing funding for social services. Sen. David Pierce, D-Etna, said the bipartisan budget contained many good things, but warned that it fails to deal with deteriorating highways, forces $10 million in cuts to state employees and $7 million in cuts at the Department of Health and Human Services and does not guarantee Medicaid expansion. He called on his colleagues to work next year to address the issues. “We will undo much of the good if we go loudly (with praise of spending) with one hand and take away silently with the other,” he said. see next page 4TH OF JULY from page one recreation, said yesterday that the parade will feature its traditional complement of marchers, but invited any group wishing to participate to complete a parade application with the Department of Parks and Recreation.

Selectboard told usual snow fence is not safe enough for bottom of Gilford sledding hill By Gail OBer


GILFORD — Cat Path resident Susan Leach last night suggested the Selectboard plant soft evergreen trees at the bottom of the sledding hill on Rte. 11-A to stop sledders from going into the road. Leach, who has been associated with the former Gilford Outing Club since the 1960s said the orange plastic fence put up in the winter is not adequate to the task. “The kids will hit soft evergreens and bail out,” she said. She said she was very afraid for the sledders, nearly all of whom are children, because the sleds are plastic now and much faster than when the sledding hill was established after the Gunstock Outing Club took out the rope tow. The hill is on town property. “I know you have a liability sign but it’s your

watch,” she said, noting that with two or three feet of snow there’s not much fencing left. Selectman John O’Brien said that to the best of his knowledge, only one person has gone through the fence. Leach also said she thinks many of the people who use the sledding hill are not from Gilford and this could be because the Laconia Country Club stopped sledding on its property. Selectmen said they would take the request under advisement. In other business, selectmen accepted a donation from the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion at Meadowbrook for $5,949.91 to install street lights on Kimball Road. The poles will be installed by Public Service of New Hampshire and are for lighting the newly expanded Meadowbrook concert venue.

N.H. gets requested waiver out from under ‘No Child’ CONCORD (AP) — U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan has approved New Hampshire’s request for a waiver freeing the state from some provisions of the No Child Left Behind Act, giving the state more flexibility in using a school accountability system. State education officials made the request last year. At that time, then-Gov. John Lynch wrote Duncan, saying that New Hampshire school districts are increasingly hampered by inflexible provisions in the law. Education officials said Under No Child Left Behind, about 75 percent of the state’s schools would have been labeled as “failing” next year under proficiency requirements. “I am encouraged by the innovative thinking and strong commitment to improving achievement for all students that is evident in New Hampshire’s request,” Duncan wrote Tuesday in a letter to state

Education Commissioner Virginia Barry. Duncan said New Hampshire has demonstrated that it has college- and career-ready expectations for all students and a high-quality plan to implement an accountability system. Duncan said the state also is committed to developing and implementing teacher and principal evaluation and support systems that are devoted to student achievement and has assured that it will evaluate and revise administrative requirements to reduce duplication and unnecessary burden on districts and schools. In 2011, Duncan’s department offered states the chance to request flexibility from certain requirements of the law in exchange for rigorous and comprehensive plans designed to improve outcomes for students. “New Hampshire is now free to pursue more effective and innovative ways to address the needs of all our students and prepare them for the jobs of the 21st century economy,” Gov. Maggie Hassan said. “By receiving this waiver, New Hampshire will continue to protect its most underserved students, close achievement gaps, increase equity, and improve the quality of instruction while also pursuing needed comprehensive reforms and protecting local control.”

from preceding page any time without penalty. New Hampshire’s Medicaid program covers low-income children, parents with nondisabled children under 18, pregnant women, senior citizens and people with disabilities. The expansion would add anyone under age 65 who earns up to 138 percent of federal poverty guidelines, which is about $15,000 for a single adult. Legislative leaders could call a special session to vote to authorize expansion after the commission files its report, but the Senate would not agree to a firm date as the House wanted. Hassan also could call lawmakers into special session — a move she indi-

cated might be needed to ensure New Hampshire starts the program Jan. 1 to begin capturing the estimated $2.5 billion in federal funding the state would get over seven years. The House and Senate largely had agreed on spending priorities entering negotiations. Besides increases in funding for higher education and services for the mentally ill and disabled, the budget also funds four new charter schools. The budget contains money for state workers’ first pay raise in 4 1/2 years, but the deal negotiated with the largest union is in jeopardy after union leaders voted not to recommend a ratification vote largely over a new health care deductible.

Lackey sharp as Red Sox beat Rockies BOSTON (AP) — John Lackey certainly looks and sounds fully recovered from elbow-ligament replacement surgery. It shows both on and off the mound. Lackey struck out a season-high 12 over seven strong innings and Daniel Nava drove in two runs, leading the Boston Red Sox to a 5-3 victory Wednesday and a sweep of the two-game series against the Colorado Rockies. “Probably the strongest he’s been all year,” Boston manager John Farrell said. “Outstanding fastball command, good power to it and a lot of strikes.” The 34-year old right-hander gave up two runs and eight hits without walking a batter. Mixing a fastball and slider most of the time, he threw 73 of 98 pitches for strikes. Lackey (5-5), who missed all of last season rehabbing from the Tommy John surgery, struck out nine over the first four innings — getting three each in the first, second and fourth — while allowing Wilin Rosario’s first-inning RBI single. “I’ve been feeling pretty good,” Lackey said, often breaking into smiles and joking, a big change from his demeanor in his early days in Boston. “I still feel like I’m getting stronger. It was a process, a lot of work, I’m still building.” With the top two starters in the rotation — Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz — both going through tough stretches, Lackey knows he’s been one to pitch in big games. “Jon will be fine. Clay has done great. I’m not worried about those guys,” he said. “I’ve been the guy that has gone first in playoff games.” Lester has struggled after a strong start, losing three of his last four decisions. Buchholz is currently on the 15-day disabled with a neck strain. Lackey had his 14th career double-digit strikeout game, first since Oct. 3, 2010. “It speaks to where my stuff’s at

right now,” he said of the strikeouts. Shane Victorino had three hits and Dustin Pedroia added two for the Red Sox. Roy Oswalt (0-2), making his second start since being recalled from DoubleA, allowed five runs and nine hits in six innings, striking out five and walking one. Colorado’s Michael Cuddyer extended his hitting streak to 23 games with two solo homers, matching Dante Bichette’s club-record set in 1995. “The Red Sox are good at putting the ball in play and creating some things. It was a lot of contact, a lot of action, and I just think they found some holes early,” Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. “I thought Roy settled in and made good use of his fastball as he went along. In the end, battled for us to give us six.” The Rockies finished a road trip in which they lost seven of nine. New Boston closer Koji Uehara worked a perfect ninth for his second save. The Red Sox wasted little time jumping to a 3-1 lead against Oswalt in the first. Jacoby Ellsbury had a leadoff double and scored on Victorino’s single to right. David Ortiz followed with his 499th career double, a drive high off the Green Monster that scored Victorino. Nava then had an RBI single when the ball bounced off the second-base bag and into short left just as shortstop Josh Rutledge was attempting to make a play on it. Oswalt, 3-2 with a 2.16 ERA DoubleA Tulsa, struck out 11 without allowing a walk in his first start against Washington last Thursday. Boston increased it to 5-1 in the third on Mike Napoli’s bases-loaded RBI single. He improved to 6 for 9 and four RBIs this season with the bases full. Nava followed with a sacrifice fly before Oswalt got the next two outs to strand runners on second and third. In the sixth, the Rockies cut it to 5-2 on Cuddyer’s leadoff homer off a billboard above the Monster seats. They

Muskrats beaten by 1st place Gulls, 7-2

NEWPORT, R.I. — The Muskrats fell two games behind Newport in the NECBL Eastern Division standings after losing to the Gulls 7-2 here Wednesday night. Laconia’s 8-5 record is now good enough for a second place tie with Mystic. Laconia scored the first two runs of the game in the top of the fourth but Newport came right back to tie and then scored a single run in the fifth to take the lead for good.

Laconia managed just five hits. Designated hitter Joey Bielek (Arizona State) had the only extra base hit, a double in the fourth that plated a run. Evan Phillips (North CarolinaWilmington) started for Laconia and took the loss. He yielded three runs on seven hits over 5 innings of work. Laconia plays at Holyoke tonight before returning home to host Mystic on Friday night at Robbie Mills Field. Game time is 6:30 p.m.

DeGalan hired as director of development at Speare PLYMOUTH — Julie DeGalan, of Campton, has been hired as the new director of development for Speare Memorial Hospital. Moving to the Plymouth area 25 years ago, DeGalan was hired by Plymouth State University in the career office. When an opportunity arose to integrate the University’s existing Development Office and Alumni Relations, DeGalan became the institution’s first director of advancement saying, “The philosophy behind merging the two was that alumni builds relationships and development follows.” DeGalan explains that development is about getting to know people and strategizing how to link what a potential donor is interested in and what an organization wants to accomplish. Health care is one avenue for donors to give back and improve society. It was DeGalan’s connection to the greater Plymouth community that impressed Speare’s President and CEO Michelle McEwen. McEwen says, “This is where Julie lives, and as she has shared, Speare has been her health care provider of choice. Combined with her experience and expertise in health care

The opening reception for the show will take place on Sunday, July 7 from 1-3 p.m. Refreshments will be served. The public is welcome to attend. Geribo, a nature and animal artist, is showing a selection of her animal paintings in a show titled “Animals: Wild and Tame”. The show will feature a variety of Geribo’s work from 30”x40” to 3”x5”, from Bengal Tigers to Yorkshire Terriers. All of her paintings are created using her mediums of choice: oils, acrylics, pastels, and watercolors. Geribo is passionate about animals and uses her artwork to support a variety of wildlife conservation organizations through the website that she co-owns with her husband, internet architect James Fontaine. Geribo and Fontaine are also very passionate about helping shelter animals and, again using her paintings of over sixty breeds of dogs and cats, they

CENTER HARBOR — Author Rebecca L. Matthews a resident of Whitefield, will be available to sign copies of her book, “The Light Within” on Saturday, July 6 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Annual Flea Market & Craft Fair, 52 Main St, Center Harbor. 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.

Edward Andrews awarded grant from National Endowment for Humanities

LACONIA — Dr. Edward Andrews, a native of Laconia, and an assistant professor of history at Providence College, was recently selected by the National Endowment for Humanities (NEH) to receive a prestigious NEH Summer Stipends Program grant, totaling $6,000. NEH Summer Stipends support individuals pursuing advanced research that is of value to humanities scholars, general audiences, or both. In July, Andrews will head to England for two months to conduct his research. The title of his project is “One Soul, tho’ not one Soyl”: American Missionary Connections with Asia

at the Dawn of the Global Age.” Andrews main focus will be to explore the interconnections between protestant missionary activity in America and similar efforts in India and Southeast Asia during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The summer stipend will allow him to research manuscripts and rare book collections at the University of Cambridge and the British library, where he will work with the records of the Society for promoting Christian Knowledge and the British East India Company. One Soul will offer important insights into early modern globalization during its most formative years.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The chasm between saying and doing can be deep and wide. You’ll consider this when a person’s talk doesn’t ring quite true. Stay alert to the discrepancies. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). In your book, people prove themselves over time. Your “wait and see” approach will usually save you from future headache and heartache. This time, though, it won’t hurt to give someone the benefit of the doubt. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There are ideas inside you waiting to be released. You can’t teach yourself to be creative, but you can learn to get out of your own way and let your natural creativity flow. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 27). Your birthday present from the stars is the gift of accurate estimations. Sound too practical to be fun? This super power is just what you need to succeed again and again. You’ll correctly assess what’s necessary to reach a goal, how much it will cost and whether it’s the right aim for you. You’ll have winning down to a science. July brings your first prize. Pisces and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 13, 22, 24 and 7.

by Chad Carpenter

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You can’t rely on your drive to get a job done. Create a system that will carry you through whether or not the drive is there. A Virgo will be helpful in the situation. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll have the chance to include new people in a venture, but be careful. Like the colored gels that change the look of stage lights, what you add to your life right now will change the way you see everything else. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There’s something automatic in a loved one’s response to you. Think of this as a challenge. Interrupt the pattern just for fun. This is how you keep from falling into a rut. CANCER (June 22-July 22). There are times when being careless with personal information or money is of little consequence, but this is not one of them. You’ll benefit from being a bit guarded with both. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Are you getting better? That’s the only question you care about today. You fear sliding backward, but sometimes in order to take a big leap forward, you have to back up a bit to get momentum. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may procrastinate most of the day, but finally, you won’t be able to put it off any longer. Then you’ll celebrate a personal victory when you finally do the thing you’ve been putting off. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Learning to talk and walk are momentous times in a personal history, and after the driver’s license, first kiss, etc., we tend to lose track. But momentous moments occur at every age. You could have one such moment today. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Sometimes you worry about whether other people are having much more fun than you. They’re not. They’re having just as much, maybe less. Does knowing this make you feel any better? SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Automate more of your life. A learning curve will be involved, but once the arc is bridged, you’ll free up so much time that you’ll wonder why you didn’t do this ages ago.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Thursday, June 27, the 178th day of 2013. There are 187 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On June 27, 1963, President John F. Kennedy spent the first full day of a visit to Ireland, the land of his ancestors, stopping by the County Wexford home of his great-grandfather, Patrick Kennedy, who’d emigrated to America in 1848. On this date: In 1787, English historian Edward Gibbon completed work on his six-volume work, “The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.” In 1844, Mormon leader Joseph Smith and his brother, Hyrum, were killed by a mob in Carthage, Ill. In 1846, New York and Boston were linked by telegraph wires. In 1893, the New York stock market crashed. In 1922, the first Newberry Medal, recognizing excellence in children’s literature, was awarded in Detroit to “The Story of Mankind” by Hendrik Willem van Loon. In 1942, the FBI announced the arrests of eight Nazi saboteurs put ashore in Florida and Long Island, N.Y. (All were tried and sentenced to death; six were executed while two were spared for turning themselves in and cooperating with U.S. authorities.) In 1944, during World War II, American forces liberated the French port of Cherbourg from the Germans. In 1950, the U.N. Security Council passed a resolution calling on member nations to help South Korea repel an invasion from the North. In 1957, more than 500 people were killed when Hurricane Audrey slammed through coastal Louisiana and Texas. In 1977, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down state laws and bar association rules that prohibited lawyers from advertising their fees for routine services. In 1988, at least 56 people were killed when a commuter train ran into a stationary train at the Gare de Lyon terminal in Paris. In 1991, Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, the first black jurist to sit on the nation’s highest court, announced his retirement. (His departure led to the contentious nomination of Clarence Thomas to succeed him.) Ten years ago: More than 735,000 phone numbers were registered on the first day of a national do-not-call list aimed at blocking unwelcome solicitations from telemarketers. Five years ago: North Korea destroyed the most visible symbol of its nuclear weapons program, the cooling tower at its main atomic reactor at Yongbyon. (However, North Korea announced in September 2008 that it was restoring its nuclear facilities.) In Zimbabwe, roaming bands of government supporters heckled, harassed or threatened people into voting in a runoff election in which President Robert Mugabe was the only candidate. One year ago: Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II and former Irish Republican Army commander Martin McGuinness offered each other the hand of peace during a private meeting inside Belfast’s riverside Lyric Theatre. A 22-year-old former Texas Tech University student from Saudi Arabia, Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari, was convicted in Amarillo of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction. (He later received life in prison.)

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, June 27, 2013— Page 23


Dear Annie: A distant relative, whose family I had never heard of, contacted me on the Internet begging for family photos and history for her grandmother. Out of the goodness of my heart and at great expense, I took a week and sorted through ancient photos and family history, scanned and labeled the photos, and emailed them to her. However, when I later checked, I saw those photos and family history online. I didn’t recognize any connection between her family and mine, although she insists there is one. Furthermore, our family is very private and has no interest in having our history and photographs published on the Internet for anyone to see. Last year, when my cousin had his identity stolen, the authorities said identity thieves often get information (like the mother’s maiden name) from genealogical websites. I wrote this woman a polite email and informed her of the identity theft and our family’s request that our privacy be respected. I asked that she remove the family photos and history from the site. She wrote back a scathing email, calling me “rude” and saying she did not have to be at my beck and call. She finally agreed to remove the information, but when I checked later, she had actually added more. This “cyber-bully’s” hateful words and total breach of trust have made me physically and emotionally ill. She is a manipulative, lying, exploitative, ungrateful, self-entitled, abusive witch. I went to great expense, time and work, giving her copies of treasured family photos so that her “Nana” would know where her father came from. Nana wrote to tell me she’d like to visit her “newly discovered family.” I don’t want to see or hear from any of these evil people again. How can I stop her from posting our family photos online? -- Bamboozled Dear Bamboozled: We contacted and asked what you can do about removing the offending photos and

history from their website. They said to email, saying you did not intend for these photographs to be posted. Give as many details as possible, and they will try to resolve it. However, there are no guarantees. To some extent, you have already lost the battle, because these photos and history are out there, and more importantly, you don’t know what else this woman might do with the information. We hope your letter serves as a warning to anyone who sends such personal data to people they barely know (and even those they do). Everything can be posted online and made accessible to anyone who looks. Dear Annie: My husband has a habit of interrupting me while I’m still talking. He anticipates what I’m going to say and will answer before I’m finished speaking. If I ask what he wants from the grocery store, he will start telling me while I’m still asking, which means I can’t hear what he says. This is both annoying and rude, but he doesn’t get it. Any ideas? -- Frustrated in Louisville Dear Frustrated: If you have told him how annoying this is and he is unwilling to work on it, we recommend you change your response so you are less aggravated. Stop speaking when he starts. Don’t correct him if he “anticipates” wrongly. You can then respond to or ignore what he says, depending on your mood, but try not to get angry. Dear Annie: I got a chuckle out of the question of the evening meal being “dinner” or “supper.” I grew up in a rural area, but have lived in a large city for the past 35 years. My cousin recently called to ask whether we could get together for dinner. When I said I’d love to, he replied, “Great! I get in town at 11 a.m.” It took me a few minutes to realize he meant the noon meal, which on the farm is called “dinner.” -- Jean

Recognized for their leadership abilities, these educators represent both the public and public/private sectors and teacher training institutions. Predominately female, most of the PELP participants work in Pakistan’s remote and rural areas. PSU staff, graduate instructors and community members have worked with more than 200 educators from Pakistan since the inaugural institute in 2004. According to statistics compiled by ITA, alumni of the program acting as master trainers in Pakistan have shared their enhanced knowledge with more than 100,000 educators and students. Plymouth State University President Sara Jayne Steen accepts an intricately embroidered shoulder bag gift from PELP participant Gul Rakhshanda. The bag, handcrafted in Pakistan, signifies a token of remembrance from the PELP students to the University. (Courtesy photo)
