20-year-old dead from suspected heroin overdose By Michael Kitch

Weirs Drive-In Theater


LACONIA — Police are investigating the untimely death of a 20-year-old man whose body was found in 18 Hillcrest Drive by a woman who is apparently his foster mother at 8:46 p.m. Thursday night. Det. Sgt Scott Roy confirmed yesterday

that Lance Reason, 20, was found unconscious and not breathing. “On first glance, it appears to be an accidental (drug) overdose,” Roy said. Fire Department Deputy Chief Deb Pendergast said emergency crews determined Reason was beyond resuscitation and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

The N.H. Medical Examiner’s office said yesterday that Reason’s autopsy has been completed but it will take about six to eight weeks to get the toxicology results. Reason’s cousin Troy Lomax of Braintree, Mass. called The Daily Sun yesterday afternoon and said that while he hadn’t seen see OVErdOsE page 9

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Declaring he “must become a better person,” San Diego Mayor Bob Filner said Friday he will undergo two weeks of counseling after a series of women claimed he made unwanted sexual advances that included groping, kissing and offensive comments. The announcement did little to stifle widespread calls for the former congressman to resign and further plunged the nation’s eighth-largest city into political turmoil. “Words alone are not enough,” Filner said at a nationally televised news conference. “I am responsible for my conduct and I must take responsibility for my conduct so that such conduct does not ever happen again.” Filner said he will receive twice-a-day see MAYOR page 8

CLEVELAND (AP) — A man accused of imprisoning three women in his home and subjecting them to rapes and beatings for a decade avoided the death penalty Friday, pleading guilty in a deal that will keep him in prison for life. “The captor is now the captive,” Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty said of 53-year-old Ariel Castro. The women’s escape from Castro’s home two months ago at first brought joy to the

city where they had become household names after years of searches, publicity and vigils, then despair at revelations of their treatment. Their rescue brought shocking allegations that Castro fathered a child with one of the women, induced five miscarriages in another by starving and punching her, and assaulted one with a vacuum cord around her neck when she tried to escape. Castro told the judge he was addicted to

pornography, had a “sexual problem” and had been a sexual abuse victim himself long ago. He pleaded guilty to 937 counts in the deal, which sends him to prison for life without parole, plus 1,000 years. Prosecutors agreed to take a possible death penalty charge off the table. Castro, wearing an orange prison jumpsuit and a bushy beard, was far more see CASTRO page 8

CAIRO (AP) — Called out by the army, the largest crowds in 2 1/2 years of upheaval filled Egypt’s streets Friday, while ousted President Mohammed was formally placed under investigation on a host of allegations including murder and conspiracy with the Palestinian militant group Hamas. Morsi’s supporters also turned out, but in vastly smaller numbers, showing no signs of backing down. The demonstra-

tions in Cairo remained mostly peaceful into the night, but five people were killed and two dozen injured in the city of Alexandria, officials said. Late Friday night, police fired tear gas to disperse hundreds of Morsi supporters in Cairo — a possible sign of a new intolerance for marches that block city streets. The announcement by prosecutors of the investigation against Morsi, which is likely to pave the way to a formal indictment and

eventually a trial, was the first word on his legal status since he was deposed by the military July 3. Since then, the Islamist leader has been held incommunicado in a secret location. Both sides tried to show how much public support they enjoy. But the millions who turned out for the pro-army demonstrations overwhelmed the streets in multiple cities in Egypt, including some that rarely see EGYPT page 8

WASHINGTON (AP) — Striving to get Edward Snowden back to America, U.S., Attorney General Eric Holder has assured the Russian government the U.S. has no plans to seek the death penalty for the former National Security Agency systems analyst. In a letter dated Tuesday, the attorney general said the criminal charges Snowden now faces in this country do not carry the

death penalty and the U.S. will not seek his execution even if he is charged with additional serious crimes. Holder’s letter followed news reports that Snowden, who leaked details of top secret U.S. surveillance programs, has filed papers seeking temporary asylum in Russia on grounds that if he were returned to the United States he would be tortured

and would face the death penalty. Snowden has been charged with three offenses in the U.S., including espionage, and could face up to 30 years in prison if convicted. The attorney general’s letter was sent to Alexander Vladimirovich Konovalov, the Russian minister of justice. see SNOWDEN page 5

LRGHealthcare to open 10 bed psychiatric care ward at Franklin Hospital Facility will join one at Elliott Hospital as only such facilities in the state By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

FRANKLIN — Franklin Regional Hospital will become the second hospital in New Hampshire to provide acute psychiatric care when it opens a 10 bed unit in October following the decision this week of the Health Services Planning and Review Board to approve the proposal by LRGHealthcare, which operates the hospital. Ellen Wolff, chief nursing officer and senior vicepresident of patient care services at LRGHealthcare, said that the decision is the culmination of efforts by the company to bring in-patient psychiatric services to the region that began in 2007, but were twice shelved for want of adequate resources. The ultimate success of the initiative, she said, stemmed from the inclusion of $5-million for the project in the $28-million appropriated to improve mental health services in the biennial budget, which was proposed by Governor Maggie Hassan and endorsed by the Legislature. “We were asked and we were willing,” Wolff said, explaining how the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) chose to place the unit at Franklin Regional Hospital. The unit will be a “designated receiving facility” (DRF), the only type of institution that can accept patients committed against their will other than New Hampshire (state) Hospital in Concord. Elliot Hospital, which operates an eight-bed unit in Manchester is the only other DRF in the state. Wolff said that the psychiatric unit will operate in space formerly occupied by the obstetrics unit, which will be retrofitted at a cost of $780,000. She said that no major structural renovations will be required, but the unit will be fitted and equipped with security features, accessible bathrooms and

special furniture. Since patients admitted involuntarily are entitled to a hearing within 72 hours of admission, the unit will include a courtroom. The unit will be staffed by the equivalent of 24 or 25 full-time employees, including security personnel round-the-clock. Genesis Behavioral Health, the regional mental health agency headquartered in Laconia and serving Belknap County and southern Grafton County, will provide support services as necessary. Wolff explained that the unit is intended to ease the pressure of what she called “pysch boarders,” patients requiring immediate care housed in hospital emergency rooms awaiting admission to New Hampshire Hospital, where there are just 130 beds for adults and children. She said that earlier this year more than 30 such patients were in hospital emergency departments and in June 10 of the 17 beds at Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia were occupied by patients requiring psychiatric

care. At the same time, Wolff said that psychiatric units in hospitals enable patients to remain closer to their families and communities. Since 1990, the number of beds at New Hampshire Hospital has shrunk from 316 to 130 while the number of beds for psychiatric patients in community hospitals has dwindled from 236 to 150. Six hospitals have closed their psychiatric units. The number of beds for involuntary admission has dropped even more sharply, from 101 in 1998 to 18 with the opening of the unit at Franklin Regional Hospital. “We are excited,” said Wolff, adding that “our goal is for this program to become a model for other community hospitals. Meanwhile, the biennial state budget also included funding for an Acute Psychiatric Residential Treatment Program (APTRTP) housed in a 16-bed facility at a location to be selected by the Division of Behavioral Health of DHHS, which is expected to issue requests-for-proposals this fall. Maggie Pritchard, executive director of Genesis Behavioral Health, has indicated that her agency intends to apply to operate the program at its property on Church Street in Laconia.

Brake failure said to have caused Center Harbor wreck

CENTER HARBOR — An investigation found that the brakes failed on the Chevrolet Avalanche that struck the building at 24 Plymouth Street housing Dewey’s Ice Cream Parlor and Cafe on Wednesday afternoon. The driver, Joshua Nungesser, 19, of 159 Old Center Harbor Road, Meredith, was traveling toward the center of town on Coe Hill Road when he discovered his brakes had failed and he could not slow his vehicle. He proceeded along Main Street then, apparently intending to avoid encountering traffic on Route 25-B and Route 25, sought to turn left on to Plymouth Street, where the uphill grade would have

slowed his vehicle. But, he failed to make the corner, first hitting a utility pole, which snapped in two, and then the building before coming to rest on the porch. Nungesser, who was alone in the vehicle, was taken to Lakes Region General Hospital with what Police Chief Mark Chase described as non-life threatening injuries. Kendra Bickford, one of two employees at the ice cream parlor, when the accident occurred, told WMUR-TV that they saw the Avalanche coming down Main Street at a high speed heard the “screeching wheels” and saw the truck crash into the shop. see next page

Culvert collapse creates deep lakes in Gunstock Acres BY GAIL OBER


GILFORD — A culvert collapse on Cumberland Road could cost the town as much as $75,000 to $100,000 to repair, said Public Works Director Sheldon Morgan yesterday. Morgan said the culvert, which is part of the drainage system for the part of Gunstock Acres that is closest to the Alton line, is the deepest in the town and transverses the lower part of the road about 100 yards in from Route 11. He said the collapse created water build up on the

Morgan described the water back-up as at the depth of a small lake — at it’s inlet point it was 25-feet deep after the culvert collapse and at the outlet side it was 50 feet-deep. He said culvert run through a ravine ran that was filled in the 1960s during some construction at Gunstock.

from preceding page pond level so they can accurately assess the problem. He was optimistic the pond would be low enough by the end of yesterday, however he spoke to The Daily Sun before it rained all afternoon. He said crews will likely fill in the existing culvert and build a slightly bigger one that will run over the old one. “We’re not going to take the old one out. It’s too deep,” he said. He said construction should begin within a week and he is hopeful Cumberland Road will be closed for no more than a week. “Unfortunately, traffic will have to

be diverted,” he said. He said the department has done about half of the road projects scheduled for this summer’s construction season and said some of those left on this year’s schedule may have to be postponed. “We’ll reevaluate everything and include our information in the next 10-year road improvement plan,” he said. This year, Wolcott paving and Busby Construction are the two companies the town chose for its subcontracting. Morgan said the scope of the project is beyond the equipment capabilities of Gilford’s Public Works Department.

Obama’s emphasis on the economy is all talk We have a president who loves to give campaign speeches to adoring crowds, but who doesn’t seem to have much interest in governing. That was apparent Wednesday, when Barack Obama delivered the first of several promised “pivot to the economy” speeches at Knox College in Galesburg, Ill., where he spoke eight years ago as a newly elected U.S. senator. The hour-long speech started off with some characteristic self-referencing — he didn’t have gray hair then, he noted, or a motorcade — and ended with a quotation from Galesburg native Carl Sandburg. But in between there was not much in the way of serious public policy. Nothing much that seems likely to speed up the nation’s sluggish economic growth or to increase the lowest-in-three-decades labor force participation. Obama called for increasing the minimum wage. That always tests well in polls. But in real life it tends not to create but to destroy jobs, especially for young people with few skills and little work experience. He also called for job retraining, a Community College to Career Initiative. Unfortunately, studies have shown for years that government job training programs aren’t very effective. In the meantime, the administration and congressional Democrats have been launching attacks on forprofit higher education firms, many of which do a better job of equipping young people for the job market. Obama mentioned in passing his administration’s efforts to connect 99 percent of students to high-speed Internet. But it’s not a lack of connectivity that is holding the economy back. The president said more about his proposal for universal pre-school education. But the administration’s own studies have shown that the four-decades-old Head Start program produces little in the way of lasting educational gains. This looks more like an expensive attempt to create more jobs for teacher union members — and more union-dues money to help elect Democratic politicians — than a serious attempt to stimulate the economy. Amazingly, Obama called for more money to create jobs in wind and solar energy. No mention was made of the hundreds of millions in loan guarantees lavished on the now bankrupt Solyndra and A123 Systems. To that list he added natural gas. But the boom in natural gas has occurred more despite, not because of administration policies. More serious perhaps was his call for more investment in infra-

structure, and for once Obama did not tout his ludicrously expensive plans for high-speed passenger rail — a technology half a century old and liable to be rendered obsolete by self-driving cars. But neither his administration nor Congress has been able to come up with financing to supplement the gasoline tax, which no longer provides sufficient revenue for road-building. Obama noted that Atlantic ports are not prepared to handle the supertankers that will be coming through the widened Panama Canal in 2015. What has his administration been doing about that? Infrastructure was not the only policy on which the president provided slogans rather than specifics. He called for expansion of tax-free savings programs as part of tax reform. But has the administration made any serious effort to engage with the tax-writing committee chairmen on the subject? Similarly, he decried high earners’ “generous tax incentives to save” — whatever those may be. But any hope of increasing revenues from high earners depends on a Democratic takeover of the House next year. Obama called for giving every homeowner a chance to refinance their mortgages, something that many have done, although administration programs to do so have helped far fewer than predicted. And, ominously, he added, “I’m also acting on my own to cut red tape for responsible families who want to get a mortgage, but the bank says no.” But didn’t the granting of mortgages to non-creditworthy borrowers trigger the collapse of the housing market? Inevitably, Obama talked about the Affordable Care Act and predicted gamely that people will be able to “comparison shop in an online marketplace, just like you would for TVs or plane tickets,” even as fellow Democrats are predicting a train wreck. But Obamacare is, as recent polling suggests, an increasingly hard sell. Voters seem to have gotten the idea that it’s causing businesses not to hire or to cut back workers’ hours. The problem Obama faces on this latest pivot to the economy is that most voters believe his policies have retarded rather than stimulated economic growth and job creation. This speech is not likely to change their minds.

LETTERS How can we live with ourselves? No HBO for our criminals? To The Daily Sun, Thanks so much to Michael Kitch for showing us just how truly deplorable the conditions are in our county jail. Now I know that the County Commission was not just crying “wolf” again. That place looks like a Russian gulag. After seeing these photos in his July 26 exposé, how can anyone not support the $43 million funding the commission seeks for a new state-of-the-art facility? Our criminals deserve nothing less. From the huge photo enlarged to take up half of the paper’s front page so we can see all the gory detail, is it obvious that the facility must have no air conditioning, and the criminals need to rely on electric fans, some made of plastic, to try to stay cool as they sleep. And I notice that each criminal does not even get his own personal fan, but must share a fan with other criminals who might not want it on the same setting. How’s that supposed to work? And those TV’s are not wide-screens. Geesh. I bet they

don’t even get HBO. And those beds! Don’t even get me started about those beds. Can’t we at least afford to give our criminals full size beds? Are those sheets even cotton? They look like a polyester blend, and we all know what a polyester blend feels like on a hot summer night. Then there is the picture where you can see that some of the paint on the floor of the booking room appears to be peeling. And some of the ceiling tiles in the gymnasium appear to be yellowing. How can we subject these poor criminals to such unappealing surroundings? Hasn’t anyone heard of drapery or carpets? And the color scheme... all white. What is this, “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”? What kind of message are we sending to our kids with a jail like this? Let’s just hope that if they take up crime, it is not in Belknap County. Our criminals deserve better than this. Frank Marino Meredith

Selectmen holding extraordinary number of non-public sessions To The Daily Sun, John Funk’s recent letter describing the action of the Gilmanton selectmen in effectuating his departure from the planning board is only part of the larger story. A review of selectmen’s minutes over the last several months indicates an extraordinary number of “non-public” sessions. New Hampshire law strictly limits the purposes for which any municipal board, including the selectmen, may exclude the public. Minutes must be kept of such sessions and unless the minutes are expressly “sealed” by vote of the board, they are available to the public. I took some time to review some recent unsealed minutes. In Mr. Funk’s case, the minutes of the session in which the selectmen apparently discussed him read in their entirety: “The selectmen discussed a letter to the planning board.” There was nothing in the minutes to indicate what the letter may have been about or that Mr. Funk was personally the subject of discussion. The statute provides that an individual who is the subject of a non-public session has a right to request that the session be public. However, there is no

express requirement that the person be notified that he/she is the subject of a non-public session, and the selectmen do not do so. Thus, the selectmen may discuss and draw conclusions affecting any individual without that person ever knowing that he/she was the subject of discussion nor given an opportunity to participate, respond or request a public session. It appears that the selectmen are conducting the business of the town in non-public sessions, and using such sessions to conduct vendettas against persons with whom they disagree or have some kind of personal animosity. Anyone who has volunteered to serve on a town board or committee may be in particular jeopardy, without ever knowing that he/she is a target, until some action is taken that affects the way the individual exercises his/her responsibility. Is this the way we want our town to be governed? Attending selectmen’s meetings can be an enlightening experience, and an opportunity to express concern with the conduct of the board. I urge concerned citizens to do so. Check the agenda on the town web see next page

LETTERS Discredited climate models driving flawed government policies

Philpot has forgotten he represents all of us, not just himself

To The Daily Sun, President Obama — Summer Cum Laude for Climate Demagoguery — has summoned the EPA post-haste to save the planet from imminent destruction from those dreaded CO2 emissions. The progressive’s war on energy and economic freedom continues. Can they save the spotted owl and it’s natural habitat or the polar bear from the searing heat of the global warming sun? Shhhh, the polar bear is doing just fine thank you. The Spotted Owl, despite the environmentalists best tree hugging efforts, is disappearing due to the bullying of the barred owl. During his recent Climate Action Plan speech, President Obama asserted that we are having longer wildfire seasons and they are due to “climate change”. Can’t say “global warming” anymore, since the earth has ceased warming for the past decade and a half, so the all encompassing, ever present “climate change” has become the new PE (progressive environmentalist) mantra. Once they realize how silly and purposely vague that phrasing is, they’ll come up with something even cooler, or warmer, like “sustainable planet protection parameters”. Causes a chill up ones spine doesn’t it? Okay, I made that up, but it does have a nice Agenda 21 ring to it doesn’t it? Check out Marita Noon’s article entitled, “The War for Economic and Energy Freedom is On”, where she referenced the American Forest Resource Council and the Canadian Journal of Forest Research. The research shows that the U.S. Forest Service’s quest to save a nocturnal winged creature was not the hoot they thought it was going to be. The lack of tree harvesting and subsequent forest overgrowth has damaged the logging industry, hurt local economies and caused great destruction to the very trees they were trying to save. Ann Forest Burns notes “instead of allowing the forests to make money through timber harvests, we are taking money away from forest management to fight fires”. It is the excess of trees per given acre that has made forest fires last longer and be more dangerous to battle. Another well intentioned liberal policy gone awry. Death, destruction and economic misery has been the result. No matter, just change the narrative and blame it on Republicans or climate change. After all, it is good intentions and not results that matter in the

To The Daily Sun, I had the displeasure of reading a recent article in your paper written about County Commissioner Philpot. He must be feeling pretty desperate to have to point fingers and make generalized uneducated statements about “The Republican leaders are out to do bad things”. Really? I recall this last budget cycle the conservative Republicans asking the commissioners to hold the line on spending on behalf of ALL TAXPAYERS, as everyone across the board is struggling to pay for all the spending the commissioners have been approving over the years. I was at those public hearings and witnessed Philpot’s deplorable behavior, when he walked out during one particularly important hearing. He forgets he was elected to represent the people and his behavior was as low as it gets. I see through Philpot’s ruse of pointing fingers away from himself. I believe he is squirming because a decision to determine who controls the county spending is about to be made and the fact that he and the other commissioners

Utopian fantasies of the modern day, delusional, liberal mind. Jeffrey Folks’ article, “Sunspots and the Great Cooling Ahead” uncovers evidence by many climate experts showing that we are likely heading into a period of global cooling due to reduced sun spot activity. Three of the last four winters and springs in the northern hemisphere have been unusually cold. He notes, “that for the world’s poor, a cold year means the difference between eating and going hungry”. No matter, it doesn’t fit the crony capitalist PE narrative and there is lots of money to be made and taxes to be collected by our friendly IRS to sustain these “unsustainable” initiatives. As our president kowtows to the environmentalist lobby for political and monetary favors, the damage to our weak economic recovery continues in a manner that harms the poorest among us the most. You know, the ones that Democrats claim they care so much about. Blocking the Keystone pipeline, shutting down coal plants and refusing to allow hydraulic fracturing (fracking) on public lands cost citizens jobs and lessens their purchasing power. Tyrannical EPA policies are being imposed on citizens based on terribly flawed and much discredited computer-generated climate models. Emerging economic entities such as China and India are more than making up for U.S. reductions in CO2 emissions and are not going to kill their growing economic freedom in order to make nice with our misguided president’s policies. Professor John Christy (Alabama University at Huntsville) calculates that a 50 percent reduction in U.S. emissions by 2050 would produce in 2100, a reduction in average temperatures of 0.13 degree Fahrenheit. So, why exactly are we ruining our economy? Would anyone who is actually enjoying the fruits of President Obama’s fundamental transformation of our free market, Constitutional Republic please stand up. Yes I know, Democrats and Republicans began this destructive process long before our president started skipping classes at Occidental College. He is however, putting the finishing touches on this progressive masterpiece, like Michelangelo with a sledgehammer. Russ Wiles Tilton

Can’t believe The Sun printed Jack Stephenson’s racist letter To The Daily Sun, I am shocked after reading the letter by Jack Stephenson published in The Laconia Daily Sun on Saturday regarding his opinion on “blacks”. The letter is racist, judgmental and incoherent. I am not as upset at Mr. from preceding page site. The selectmen normally meet Mondays at 6 p.m. Ultimately change will have to take place at the ballot box. Citizens need to be willing to step forward, learn about town government, and be willing to run for election and serve in the public interest. Carolyn Baldwin Gilmanton

Stephenson, who has his own very conservative, racist views, as to The Laconia Daily Sun for printing this garbage. No wonder Afro-Americans do not want to go “sailing” (or even vacation) in our lovely Lakes Region of New Hampshire. Mark Weinreb Laconia

Just build some bunk beds To The Daily Sun, One cost effective & quick solution to the housing crunch at the Belknap County Jail is to build bunk beds! Susan Bossert Laconia

have been working very quietly for the last two years to have a new state-ofthe-art prison built at the taxpayers’ expense. This prison will be an unfair financial burden on Belknap County residents and he knows it. $43 million dollars just for construction, then add on maintenance costs each year, payroll with benefits, administration costs, heat, electric, food, and all the other bells and whistles that the commissioners can dream up. The prison costs come to ALL OF US, on top of record unemployment, increased local and state taxes, and the start of paying for Obamcare in 2014. Philpot has forgotten he represents the PEOPLE of Belknap County and not his own agenda. It’s no wonder he is spouting off the way he is, after all, that’s what desperate people do when they think they cannot fool the people into agreeing with their schemes. What do you think his motivation is, considering how he turns his back on his constituents, how he behaves in public, and how he points fingers? Barbara Howard Alton

Thanks! Awesome Blossoms Garden Tour was great success To The Daily Sun, Opechee Garden Club has many to thank for the tremendous success of its “Awesome Blossoms” Garden Tour held July 13.

Sen. Andrew Hosmer

Bringing common sense business principals to Statehouse in Concord When I ran for the New Hampshire Senate, I wanted to bring common-sense business principles to Concord. To me, that means working with both parties to solve problems, being careful with taxpayers’ money, and focusing on things people really care about, such as economic growth and job creation, instead of getting caught in tired partisan battles. After six months on the job, I am happy to report that we have made progress. Real change has come to Concord. I have been happy to see compromise, with legislators from different parties working together, and to be a part of passing meaningful legislation that moves New Hampshire forward. For example, in this session, I worked with Republicans to modernize New Hampshire’s corporate law, making it easier to create businesses and spur job growth. I also partnered with my Republican colleagues to double and make permanent the Research and Development Tax Credit program. With strong bipartisan support, I co-sponsored a bill to protect restaurants and other service-industry enterprises from higher taxes on tipped wages — taxes that they can’t afford and which could hurt employment, especially in our tourism-supported industries. I also worked with a Republican colleague to streamline complex regulations by combining several different permits into one, thus saving time and expense for businesses, while keeping all of the same environmental protections in place. These steps forward which create jobs and make businesses more competitive were possible only because both parties worked together. To help the Lakes Region, I successfully worked to ensure that boating fees, intended solely for promoting water safety, will not be raided by the Legislature. The tourism that is so important to the economy of our region needs support like this. Again, I was happy to work with both sides to help everyMAYOR from page 2 briefings about city operations while participating full-time in what he described as “intensive therapy” beginning Aug. 5. He said he would return on Aug. 19 and focus on “doing right by the city in terms of being the best mayor I can be, and the best person I must be.” He said the two-week stint will be part of a continuing program that involves ongoing counseling. City Attorney Jan Goldsmith said Filner, not the city, will pay for the therapy. Filner, who is 70 and divorced, did not take any questions after the announcement. Several people who have called on Filner to resign said his plan for ther-

one see the importance of promoting a thriving economy on our lakes. Perhaps the biggest accomplishment was the two-year budget that Governor Hassan just signed into law. By articulating clear goals, listening to both sides, and compromising, we generated a budget plan that does almost everything the governor set out to do and gives everyone something to be proud of. This budget is balanced. It creates no new taxes or fees. It keeps tax cuts for businesses. And it spends wisely on high priorities: ending the developmental disability waitlist; increasing support for education; stabilizing funding for community mental heath organizations; restoring the program for children in need of services; and supporting innovation in the private sector. Does it do everything that everyone wanted? No. But by giving a little bit, both sides achieved the majority of their goals, and most important, the people and businesses of the state will be better off. And that is what compromise is all about. Clearly, more work lies ahead. We need to find a way to invest more in roads and bridges to keep our state competitive in the global marketplace and lower costs for drivers. We need to leverage Medicaid expansion so 58,000 hardworking, taxpaying Granite Staters are covered, creating 5,100 jobs, and expanding our economy by $2 billion. In all of this we must continue to look for ways to streamline government functions and continue to create an economic environment where New Hampshire businesses can thrive. I am encouraged by the cooperation and progress that I have seen so far, and I have been glad to help get Concord back to working together on solving problems and moving our state forward again. (Senator Andrew Hosmer of Laconia is the state senator from District 7, serving the towns of Andover, Belmont, Boscawen, Canterbury, Gilford, Northfield, Salisbury, Webster and the cities of Franklin and Laconia.) apy was inadequate and reiterated calls for the Democrat to step down. “Two weeks of therapy may help Bob Filner with his personal problems, but it does not help to address the needs of San Diego,” said Laura Fink, a political consultant who alleges that Filner patted her buttocks at a 2005 fundraiser when she was deputy campaign manager for the then-congressman. Kevin Faulconer, a Republican city councilman, said Filner’s “bad behavior” will not end after two weeks of therapy. “Bob Filner should leave to receive the help he obviously needs, but he shouldn’t take the office of the mayor and San Diego city government with him.” Faulconer said.

Spain train crash driver arrested

SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA, Spain (AP) — Investigations into Spain’s deadliest train crash in decades have only begun, but already a key question has been answered: Experts said Friday that the driver, not a computer, was responsible for applying the brakes because no “failsafe” system has been installed on the dangerous stretch of bending track. The question of whether the brakes failed — or were never used — in the approach to Santiago de Compostela may remain open until police can question the injured driver and analyze the data on the train’s just-recovered “black box.” Police announced they had arrested 52-year-old Francisco Jose Garzon Amo on suspicion of reckless driving because the train hit the turn Wednesday traveling far faster than its posted 80 kph (50 mph) limit. The train’s eight carriages packed with 218 passengers tumbled off the tracks into a concrete wall, and diesel

fuel powering the engine sent flames coursing through some cabins. As the first funeral ceremonies began Friday night, authorities working from a sports arena-turned-morgue announced they had positively identified 75 of the 78 people killed in the crash. They lowered the death toll from 80 after determining that some severed body parts had wrongly been attributed to different victims. They said five of the dead came from Algeria, the Dominican Republic, Italy, Mexico and the United States. Adif, Spain’s railway agency, confirmed that a high-tech automatic braking program called the European Rail Traffic Management System was installed on most of the high-speed track leading from Madrid north to Santiago de Compostela — but the cutting-edge coverage stops just 5 kilometers (3 miles) south of where the crash occurred, placing a greater burden on the driver to take charge.

CASTRO from page 2 engaged than in previous court appearances when he mostly kept his head down and eyes closed. He answered the judge’s questions in a clear voice, saying he understood that he would never be released from prison and adding that he expected he was “going to get the book thrown at me.” “I knew that when I first spoke to the FBI agent, when I first got arrested,” he said. Castro, who was born in Puerto Rico, said he could read and understand English well but had trouble with comprehension. “My addiction to pornography and my sexual problem has really taken a toll on my mind.” At the end of the 2 1/2-hour hearing, the judge accepted the plea and declared Castro guilty. Sentencing was set for Thursday. The women said in a statement they were relieved by the conviction. “They are satisfied by this resolution to the case, and are looking forward to having these legal proceedings draw to a final close in the near future,” said the statement released on their behalf. Gina DeJesus, Amanda Berry and Michelle Knight disappeared separately between 2002 and 2004, when

they were 14, 16 and 20 years old. Each said they had accepted a ride from Castro, who remained friends with the family of one of the women and even attended vigils over the years marking her disappearance. He was accused of repeatedly raping, beating and restraining the women, sometimes chaining them to a pole in a basement, to a bedroom heater or inside a van. Castro fathered a 6-year-old daughter with Berry, now 27, authorities said. On the day the child was born, Christmas 2006, Castro raped one of the other women, who had helped deliver the baby. Berry told authorities that she, her child and the other women never saw a doctor during their captivity. Knight, now 32, said her five pregnancies ended after Castro starved and repeatedly punched her. The women escaped Castro’s house May 6 when one of them kicked out part of a door and called to neighbors for help. Castro was arrested within hours and has remained behind bars. Residents of the street where Castro’s boarded up house is surrounded by a tall chain-link security fence welcomed the guilty plea and the news that the house would likely be torn down within a month, possibly for a park.

EGYPT from page 2 seen any rallies since the 2011 uprising. Throngs of people turned out in Cairo’s Tahrir Square and in other cities, answering a call by army chief Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, who urged them to give him a mandate to stop “potential terrorism” by supporters of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood. Portraits of the smiling el-Sissi in sunglasses dominated the crowd in Tahrir and one near the presidential palace across town. Posters with his picture were emblazoned with the words “the love of the people,” and demonstrators wore small photos of him around their necks or carried a picture of his face on an Egyptian onepound note. Security was heavy after el-Sissi vowed to protect the rallies from attacks by rivals. Tanks guarded one entrance to Tahrir and police were

stationed at other parts. “The army is here to protect the people. They don’t lie,” said Ezzat Fahmi, a 38-year-old in the crowd. He said el-Sissi called the rallies “so the entire world can see that the Egyptian people don’t want the Brotherhood anymore.” El-Sissi’s plea came at a time where the political standoff with Morsi’s supporters showed no sign of resolution. It raised speculation that he may be planning a crackdown on the toppled president’s allies, who have held a sit-in outside the Rabaa al-Adawiyah Mosque in Cairo and near daily rallies elsewhere in the capital for three weeks. The rallies have often turned violent, with more than 180 people killed this month. The Morsi supporters and opponents blame each other for the bloodshed, and people in both camps have been seen carrying weapons.

OVERDOSE from page one Reason in a number of years, he remembered him as an easy-going kid who looked a lot like his father. Lomax said he is very close to Reason’s father who, he noted, was on his way to Laconia. Lomax said Reason, a 2012 graduate of Laconia High School, came to New Hampshire as a foster child when he was about 10 and had recently been back in touch with his father, who he identified as Thomas Mitchell of Boston. Lomax said Reason was living in what he believed to be a foster home and that he had stayed there after he became an adult. “I feel terrible. The two were just starting to reconnect and Lance had come to Boston a few times to be with his dad,” he said, noting the two liked to play basketball together. When asked why Reason hadn’t returned to Boston to be with his father, Lomax said Reason had lived in New Hampshire for most of his life and “was a New Hampshire kid.” “He walked New Hampshire, he talked New Hampshire,” Lomax said, explaining people from different areas in Boston have different accents and mannerisms that differ greatly from people who grew up in New Hampshire. Laconia Police Chief Chris Adams said Reason’s death appears to be the third drug overdose death in the city this year. He said the investigation into Reason’s death is ongoing. In a prepared statement issued by Laconia Police, Capt. Matt Canfield said that although Laconia is a small community with some beautiful assets, there is a also heroin problem. “When most people think of heroin, the associate this powerful and addictive drug with large urban cities riddled with crime,” he said, describing heroin as a side of Laconia “that few see or want to see.” He said it is brown in color, can be injected, snorted, or smoked and it creates a physical and mental dependence for users. “Heroin is becoming cheaper and more plentiful in this area. In most cases, one can purchase heroin cheaper that buying a six pack of beer,” Canfield wrote. “This is a very scary reality that this community

must face.” He said Laconia Police are “working around the clock” to rid the streets of heroin and other drugs but it’s a problem that members of the community must come together with Lance Reason police to solve. (Courtesy photo) Earlier this week, city police arrested Carrie Conway, of 19 Bay Street and charged her with possession of heroin with intent to distribute after a police detective who had a warrant to search her teenaged son, found him walking in a parking lot with four small bags on him, along with $624. A warrant was obtained for a search of her home. This month, 12 separate people were indicted by a Belknap County grand jury for possession of either heroin, oxycodone or sedatives. These figures do not include the people indicted for cocaine, methamphetamine, or marijuana. In a brief telephone interview yesterday, Chief Adams said that heroin police are finding in the city and surrounding suburbs is more potent than police have traditionally seen and a user, be it the first time or last time, can easily die from it. He also said Laconia Police are working closely with police in surrounding communities to combat the recent spike in heroin abuse. Meredith Police are investigating an apparent drug overdose that occurred about two months ago, but as of a two weeks ago, were still awaiting toxicology reports. Gilford Police confirmed they are investigating at least one apparent drug overdose in their community this year. Anyone with any information about any recent drug activity is encouraged to call the Laconia Police Department at 524-5252 or the Greater Laconia Crime Line at 524-1717.

I don’t know if anyone has ever done that before,’’ said Guilmette, who lives in Salisbury Beach, Mass., less than a mile from the New Hampshire border.

We wanted to see the other islands and the buildings on them, so last summer Jay and I decided to try and visit every island on the lake.’’ says Guilmette.

Tilman & Orioles shut down Red Sox, 6-0

BALTIMORE (AP) — Chris Tillman pitched seven innings of two-hit ball, Adam Jones homered twice and the Baltimore Orioles defeated the Boston Red Sox 6-0 Friday night to end a three-game skid. The loss dropped the Red Sox a percentage point behind Tampa Bay in the AL East, pending the Rays’ game against the Yankees. Boston, which has dropped six of nine, had been alone atop the division since May 27. Tillman (13-3) tied a career high with eight strikeouts in becoming the Orioles’ first 13-game winner since Erik Bedard in 2007. In his past three starts against Boston, the right-hander is 3-0 with a 0.68 ERA. Jones hit a two-run homer in the first and a solo shot in the fifth to help Baltimore bounce back from three successive losses in Kansas City. It was the third multihomer game of his career. Manny Machado and J.J. Hardy also homered for

the Orioles, who improved to 6-2 against Boston this season. All three home runs were off John Lackey (7-8), who yielded a season-high tying five runs in 6 1-3 innings. The right-hander came in with a 12-4 lifetime record against the Orioles and had allowed two runs or fewer in six of seven starts since June 15. Jacoby Ellsbury had half of Boston’s four hits. The Red Sox got only one runner past second base in their eighth shutout loss of the year. Tillman began the game with a wild streak, giving up a single and a pair of two-out walks to load the bases in the first inning before striking out Daniel Nava on three pitches. In the bottom half, Nick Markakis singled and Jones hit an opposite-field drive to right that barely cleared the 25-foot scoreboard.

On Tuesday, July 23 a story in The Daily Sun mistakenly reported that the City Council approved an expenditure of $382,500 from the downtown Tax Increment Financing (TIF) District Fund for improvements to the “Gateway Plaza” at the Main Street bridge over the Winnipesaukee River. In

fact, the council approved an expenditure of not more than $300,000 for the project, which includes $15,000 for demolition and site preparation and $67,500 for the installation of electricity, water and drainage to support lighting and landscaping.

High water forces yet another ‘no wake’order posted for Silver Lake in Belmont & Tilton

BELMONT/TILTON — The New Hampshire Marine Patrol yesterday issued a “No Wake” order on Silver Lake, where the water level topped 467 above sea level. This order will remain in effect until the lake level drops below 467 feet. The gauge at the

Department of Environmental Services, Silver Lake station will be used to make this determination. Marine Patrol urges all boaters to be aware of their wakes and use caution when operating in channels or close to shore.

He’s also planning to stop by at the Fisherman’s Coop in Seabrook on his way north and pick up eight lobsters, which are currently selling for $3.99 a pound, for a lobster cookout for the family when he next arrives at Cow Island.

Gilford wins 3rd straight District 6 10U title By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

GILFORD — For the third straight year the Gilford 10U All-Stars won the District 6 Cal Ripken tournament. After going 5-0 in pool play the Gilford All-Stars faced off against Lakes Region in a three-game series, losing 6-3 in the first game but scoring 13-2 and 7-0 wins over the next two days in the tournament, which was played in Franklin and ended on July 3. ‘’Pitching and defense were the keys for us,’’ said Coach Rick Muthersbaugh, who is in his second year as coach of the All-Stars and was assistant coach when Gilford won their first district championship in Franklin in 2011. He said that his coaches, Jeff McKinney and Joe Rizzitano, helped develop the fielding skills of his young team, which included three eight-year-olds, one in the infield and two in the outfield, as well as prepare them mentally for the challenges of tournament play. ‘’Playing good defense helps keep you in the game and prevents big innings which can cost you the game,’’ says Muthersbaugh, who added that it is important for the young play-

ers to realize that making an error isn’t the end of the world. ‘’We tell them that errors are part of the game and the best thing they can do is put it behind them,’’ said Muthersbaugh. He said that Connor Sullivan was the ace pitcher for the Gilford All-Stars while his nine-year-old son, Ben, who first started at that position as seven-yearold, did a good job as catcher. Following the District 6 tournament the Gilford All-Stars went on to the state Cal Ripken tournament in Exeter, where they won a game for the first time and played competitive baseball in all three see next page

MANCHESTER — Circle K and Irving Oil locations across New Hampshire are celebrating Fueling Dreams: To Serve and Protect Day today, to benefit the 3,100 athletes of Special Olympics New Hampshire (SONH). From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. todaay, law enforcement officials and SONH athletes will team up to pump gas and wash windows for donations at over 50

Circle K and Irving Oil locations. The annual Fueling Dreams promotion began on July 3 with participating stores selling window clings to raise funds for SONH. The cling sales continue through July 28 at Circle K locations and August 3 at Irving Oil. “Since the beginning of Fueling Dreams in 1999, our enduring partnership with Circle K and Irving see next page

from preceding page games. ‘’We lost 2-1 to Exeter, the defending state champions, in the first game. The way we played earned us the respect of other teams and that what as a good feeling,’’ said Muthersbaugh. Gilford beat Great North Woods 14-4 in its second tournament game before bowing out with a 3-0 loss to Youngsville. ‘’It’s been a big improvement over the last three years. In our first state tournament we only played eight innings in two games because we were behind

by 10 runs in both of them. Last year we lost 3-2 and 5-4 in seven innings. But this year we were really competitive against teams which draw from a much bigger base than we have.’’ said Muthersbaugh. He said there were only 100 players in Gilford, Cal Ripken this year while some of the other tournament teams have a pool of 500 or more and have All-Star teams at each age level, which helps them prepare for future tournaments. ‘’It’s quite an accomplishment for a small town like ours to be competitive with much larger programs.’’ said Muthersbaugh.

MEREDITH — The League of NH Craftsmen Meredith Retail Gallery is hosting a collection of work by August’s featured artist Amee Sweet-McNamara, a profusion of earrings, bracelets, necklaces and pendants. Sweet-McNamara of Amee Runs with Scissors has provided an exclusive offering of her Soutache & Bead Embroidery jewelry. In a collection worthy of Anu, the Celtic Goddess of Plenty, Amee mixes metallic copper, sparkling stones and rich jewel tones evocative of the bounty of the harvest season. Amee refers to her particular technique as “Soutache & Bead Embroidery.” Soutache is fabric braid most commonly used in military decorations but also as a decorative trim on clothes. Amee uses a variety of beads including glass, metal, Swarovski crystal, shell, stone, pearl and - occasionally vintage plastic and buttons.

CONCORD — Shane Schultz, a 2013 Laconia High School graduate, completed the 40th annual NH Police Cadet Training Academy on Friday, June 28. He was one of 136 young adults, 99 of them being Basic/first year members, from 4 states to complete the challenge. This week long program gives these young people a taste of what life in law enforcement might be like. These young adults learned to push their bodies and minds to the limit with daily physical training and classroom time. Classroom lesson topics included report writing, police response to domestic violence, the many faces of facebook, k-9 demonstration, dangerous drugs, accident investigation, motor vehicle law, traffic control and direction, radar, officer down/ police shooting, liquor laws, DWI laws and arrest, probation and parole, firearms, juvenile laws, criminal law, fish and game, and self defense techniques.

Lakes Region Habitat for Humanity breaks ground on handicap-accessible home FRANKLIN — Lakes Region Habitat for Humanity has begun the building of its first handicap accessible home. When completed, the house, located at the end of Dearborn Street in Franklin,will be home to the Soboslai family. Recently, Wayne Hackett, the project manager for Habitat, and a group of volunteers from the Sanbornton Congregational Church put down insulation so that the concrete for the foundation can be poured. AccordLeft to right: Eric Sargent and Dave Soter of Mountain Top Builders, Wally Strauch of Sanbornton Coning to Hackett, “The gregational Church, Wayne Hackett of Lakes Region Habitat, and Steve Majeski of Sanbornton Congrehouse will be extremely gational Church.

Lakes Region Habitat for Humanity, and the Sobofrom preceding page nights in hot dorm rooms at NHTI. They learned to work as a team and rely on each other. This experience in discipline and commitment will prepare these young people for a career as a law enforcement officer, military member, public safety responder, or any other career they choose. Shane came home with the Academy’s Walter “Bud” Dockham Memorial Scholarship award of $1,000 and an extreme sense of pride to be one of the members of the academy’s first year of cadets where all of the basic year students graduated. He will add this scholarship to his Laconia Police Relief Asso-

He is ready to register for the week long program next year to learn whatever they have in store for the second year members.

slai family is extremely grateful. “The overwhelming support from the community to help people they don’t even know is very touching and heartwarming — to know there are people out there who want to reach out and help,” Kelly Sobasli said. Every day Kelly Soboslai tackles the issues that come with having muscular dystrophy but, thanks to Lakes Region Habitat for Humanity, things will become just a little easier with a new handicap accessible home. “Many people and organizations are co-operating to get this house built”, according to Jason Hicks, vice president of Lakes Region Habitat for Humanity. John B. Robinson, president of Wood and Clay, is acting as the general contractor on the build. “Not only is he donating his time to this effort, he has gotten many other members of the Lakes Region Builders and Remodelers Association involved. These include surveyor Carl Johnson, Belknap Landscaping for excavation, Coleman Concrete, Mountain Top Builders, Penco to assist with plumbing, RJD Electric, and Pella for windows. Other vendors making significant contributions include Rowell Sewer & Drain, Casella Waste Systems, and Belletetes Lumber. John Robinson said that they hope to make it a green building, making it as environmentally friendly as possible. While it may be more costly to build, he hopes that volunteer work will offset much of the cost. According to Hicks, Lakes Region Habitat for Humanity received a grant of $30,000 from the Fedsee HABITAT page 17

It seems like we are having a little resurgence in the condominium market in the Lakes Region. Just a little bit, but every little bit helps. Prices have dropped from the peak years and there is a pretty good supply of units available in all price ranges. Halfway through 2013 there have been 81 condominiums sold in Belknap County at an average price of $178,947. That total is up from the 72 transactions at an average of $157,002 per sale for the first half of 2012. Laconia has the most condominium complexes of any town in the area. Consequently, it has the most units for sale and has had the most transactions with fifty two units changing hands during the first half of the year. Everything from cottage condos along Weirs Boulevard to higher end free standing townhomes are selling. And there are some bargains. There were eleven units that sold below $100,000 in Laconia with five of those in the Meredith Bridge association over in the Weirs. These units typically are just under 1,000 square feet in size and have two bedrooms although there are some one bedroom garden units. They come with a garage or carport and the association has a nice clubhouse, pool, and gym. Plus, you can walk down to Weirs Beach and take a dip, play ski ball, or get lunch and two margaritas at Crazy Gringo’s and make it back home without getting into trouble. Condos here are selling in the $65,000 to $85,000 range which is really pretty affordable for a vacation getaway or primary residence especially considering they were selling between $125,000 and $150,000 back in 2006 and 2007. There were sixteen sales in the gated communities of South Down and Long Bay over the first six months of the year ranging from $147,474 for a 2,261 square foot, four bedroom bank owned unit at 5B Fells Way all the way up to $540,000 for a free standing 3,600 square foot home at 29 Prides Point. The homes in Long Bay are also a condominium form of ownership. There are a number of different associations within Long Bay with some providing full landscaping and snow removal services while others leave the lawn care for the owner. Of course, residents get the use of all the fabulous amenities including the beaches, dock-

ing facilities, walking trails, pools, and tennis courts. And it is these amenities that make these condos so desirable and saleable year after year. Imagine owning a condo in South Down for less than $200,000 and having all of these amenities! As of this writing I counted at least four available in that range. There were sixteen condo sales in Gilford ranging from quarter shares in a one bedroom unit at the Fireside Inn and Suites (a.k.a. B Mae’s Resort) for a mere $17,500 all the way up to $465,000 for a wonderful front row, three bedroom, four bath, 2,500 square foot unit in the desirable Broadview Condominium complex on Belknap Point Road. This unit has stunning views and the amenities include tennis courts, sandy beach, and docks. Of course, the Samoset Resort on Route 11 headed toward Alton is always a great place to settle in for an extended vacation with a great beach, pool, tennis courts and docks also available. A 1,173 square foot, six room, two bedroom, two bath unit sold here back in February for $186,500 while two other larger units came in at $260,500 and $280,000. There are over two hundred and forty condos currently on the market in Belknap County. You can find a number of units for less than $100,000. Or maybe a spectacular new Adirondack style unit with great lake views in the Town Homes at Meredith Bay on Scenic Road in Laconia is more your style. Those will set you back something in the $500,000 to $600,000 but you’re worth it, right? I guess the point is, whether you are looking for a primary home or vacation retreat there is something out there for every taste and budget. So let’s get cracking and get out and buy that new vacation property...

Soccer registration nights July 30 & Aug. 1 in Gilford GILFORD — The Gilford Parks and Recreation Department will be hosting the final two registration nights for the Fall Youth Soccer Program on Tuesday, July 30 and Thursday, August 1 from 5:30–7 p.m. in the Gilford Parks and Recreation Office. The youth soccer program is open to all Gilford students entering grades K-5 this fall. The registration deadline is August 23 and any registrations submitted after this day will be accepted on an availability basis only. Cost: $25/participant or $35/family by August 11. $35/participant or $45/family after August 11. For more information, contact the Gilford Parks and Recreation Department at 527-4722. HABITAT from page 15 eral Loan Bank (FHLB) in Boston. He explained the FHLB has an Affordable Housing Program. The Lakes Region Habitat for Humanity partnered with Meredith Village Savings Bank, who provided a loan for the project. The grant will pay off these costs which helps reduce the total construction costs. Marilyn Deschenes, president of Lakes Region Habitat for Humanity, said that there are three qualifications for the housing. The first is the need for housing, and the Soboslai family qualified due to Sobasli’s muscular dystrophy, as well as their current apartment not being handicap accessible. The second is the ability to pay. Deschenes said that Habitat set them up for success by putting the family through first time homebuyer courses. The third is the willingness to partner, requiring 500 hours of sweat equity. Deschenes said that this started a long time ago, and that work included classes, physical labor and other things done at home. “One thing we want to make clear is it’s not a giveaway program,” said Hicks. “It’s a no interest mortgage, but it’s still a mortgage.” There have been fundraisers held up by both Habitat for Humanity and the Soboslai Family, including the sold out Cupcakes for a Cause which brought in $2,200. The Soboslai Family has also done fundraisers on their own, including a fall and a spring concert that together brought in more than $2,500 at St. James Episcopal Church. Other small fundraisers have also been conducted to help the offset the cost. “This may seem like a lot of help from these companies and volunteers, but building a house is an expensive task,” said Deschenes. “The more donations we receive, the more volunteers that help, the less the family will actually have to pay for the house.” For more information, to donate or to get involved call 279-4820 or email

SANBORNTON — Two baskets, “Ferns” and “Dragonfly”, by Sharon Dugan of Sanbornton have been selected for the National Basketry Organization sponsored All Things Considered VII exhibition.

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis

the thick of it today, things may seem overwhelming. But don’t worry. By focusing on how you can help others succeed, you will in turn succeed. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Being prepared means doing what is asked of you, anticipating what else might be asked and then preparing for that, too. The success of an event comes down to 90 percent preparation and 10 percent presentation. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your style of managing people and situations will prove effective in multiple circumstances today. Soft words spoken with firm confidence will produce impressive results. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Fortune will favor the bold. Take massive action. Figure out what you think you need to do to generate the level of excitement and interest you want, and then do twice that amount. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 27). You’ll have the pleasure of dealing with a wide array of characters, and you’ll get good at relating to people who are very different from you. It will take guts to seize an August romantic opportunity, and you’re up for it. September, October and November require your diligence and sweat, but by the end of the year, you’re richer for it. Pisces and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 2, 22, 15 and 9.

by Chad Carpenter

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll make wise, if subconscious, social choices. You’ll keep shallow people at a distance, not because you’re mad at them, but because it’s wasteful to spend time in a way that doesn’t feed you on many levels. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Over time, even the gentlest of winds will change the mountainous landscape, penetrate rocks and influence the way the trees grow. You’re like that gentle wind now, subtly changing those around you. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). In the strange mood of the day, you may feel that your efforts are neither focused nor persistent enough to make a difference. But it’s the fact that you’re making an effort at all that endears you to others. CANCER (June 22-July 22). What has you so conflicted is an idea that’s based in real perceptions, yet is made unreal by the fantasy and baggage you’ve added to it. Retreat from conflict, and you’ll be advancing toward inner peace. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll enjoy using your amplified creative powers to make someone’s life better. Think of new ideas that could help someone, and present them without being asked. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). What you don’t understand far exceeds what you do. Your awareness of this is what makes you human. Bonus: You’ll meet kindred souls as you wonder, ponder and quest to put things together. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ve followed enough, and now it’s time to lead. What might strike you as odd is that the leading doesn’t feel the way you thought it would. It’s like you’re still learning, but from the head of the class instead of the back row. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You have a certain result in mind, and it requires you to direct people’s thoughts. The art of influence is in making it seem like it’s not happening. If your persuasion is felt, it suddenly will not be persuasive at all. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ve taken on one of your bigger ambitions, and in

––––––– ALMANAC –––––––


Today is Saturday, July 27, the 208th day of 2013. There are 157 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 27, 1953, the Korean War armistice was signed at Panmunjom, ending three years of fighting. On this date: In 1789, President George Washington signed a measure establishing the Department of Foreign Affairs, forerunner of the Department of State. In 1861, Union Maj. Gen. George B. McClellan took command of the Army of the Potomac during the Civil War. In 1866, Cyrus W. Field finished laying out the first successful underwater telegraph cable between North America and Europe. A previous cable in 1858 burned out after only a few weeks’ use. In 1909, during the first official test of the U.S. Army’s first airplane, Orville Wright flew himself and a passenger, Lt. Frank Lahm, above Fort Myer, Va., for one hour and 12 minutes.. In 1940, Bugs Bunny made his “official” debut in the Warner Bros. animated cartoon “A Wild Hare.” In 1942, during World War II, the First Battle of El Alamein in Egypt ended in a draw as Allied forces stalled the progress of Axis invaders. The Allies went on to win a clear victory over the Axis in the Second Battle of El Alamein later that year. In 1960, Vice President Richard M. Nixon was nominated for president on the first ballot at the Republican National Convention in Chicago. In 1974, the House Judiciary Committee voted 27-11 to adopt the first of three articles of impeachment against President Richard Nixon, charging he had personally engaged in a course of conduct designed to obstruct justice in the Watergate case. In 1980, on day 267 of the Iranian hostage crisis, the deposed Shah of Iran died at a military hospital outside Cairo, Egypt, at age 60. In 1996, terror struck the Atlanta Olympics as a pipe bomb exploded at Centennial Olympic Park, directly killing one person and injuring 111. Antigovernment extremist Eric Rudolph later pleaded guilty to the bombing. Ten years ago: Comedian Bob Hope died in Toluca Lake, Calif. at age 100. Lance Armstrong won a record-tying fifth straight title in the Tour de France. However, Amstrong was stripped of all seven of his Tour de France titles in 2012 by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. Five years ago: A gunman went on a rampage at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church in Knoxville, killing two people and wounding six others. (Jim D. Adkisson later pleaded guilty to murder and attempted murder and was sentenced to life in prison without parole.) Two bombs targeting civilians at a packed square in Istanbul, Turkey, killed 17 people. Iran hanged 29 people convicted of murder, drug trafficking and other crimes. Carlos Sastre of Spain won the Tour de France in one of the closest finishes in the 105-year-old race. One year ago: Britain opened its Olympic Games in a celebration of Old England and new, even cheekily featuring a stunt double for Queen Elizabeth II parachuting with James Bond into Olympic Stadium.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, July 27, 2013— Page 23


Dear Annie: I visit my family every summer and help my aging mother with her huge yard. About a decade ago, she and my stepdad bought a house for me. It was understood that eventually I would be able to put my name on the deed, but at the time, my financial situation was overwhelming. Due to cutbacks at work and other problems, I had to declare bankruptcy. But I should have all my debts paid off in about two years. When I saw my mother today, my aunt was present. Mom made a comment about my finances that left me covered in a bucket of shame. She has never done this before. I am angry, but I suspect she has no clue what she did. I wonder whether she is losing her perception of appropriate behavior and can no longer keep a confidence. The problem is, my aunt is now curious about my financial situation and feels she has the right to inquire since my mother brought it to her attention. I don’t know how to handle this. Any advice? -- California Dear California: It doesn’t matter what your aunt thinks she is entitled to. You are not required to discuss your financial situation with anyone who isn’t directly involved. When your aunt tries to get information from you, be polite but firm. Tell her, “I appreciate your concern, but I’d rather not discuss something so personal.” It’s possible your mother’s comment indicated suppressed anger about this situation, and you might discuss it with her. Otherwise, please suggest she see her doctor for a complete evaluation of her mental and physical health. Dear Annie: I recently attended my 10-year high school reunion. When we started college, Facebook was just gaining traction. At the reunion, I was mingling with my classmates and catching up. If someone had posted on Facebook that they

had gotten married or had a child, I would comment and say congratulations. There was one classmate who posted that she was going on a month-long trip to Europe. I told her that sounded fun. She responded by saying how awkward it was that I knew her personal business when we hadn’t spoken in 10 years. If someone doesn’t want others to know about their vacation plans, they shouldn’t post them on their Facebook page for all to see. You can put as much or as little information as you desire on your profile. You also can control who sees it. Was it rude of me to discuss this? -- Awkward Turtle Dear Turtle: No. When people post things openly on Facebook, they are courting comments from anyone who sees their page, whether or not that is the intent. As you said, there are ways to limit exposure, but you have to set the controls to do so. Privacy is becoming a luxury of the past. It is ridiculous to publicize your life and then act offended when people notice. Still, the best method of handling such unpleasant encounters is to apologize for intruding and back away. Dear Annie: “Betty” wrote in response to “N.N.,” suggesting that her husband’s depression might be linked to celiac disease. I do not have celiac, but have battled with several serious health problems for years. I finally saw a nutritionist, who diagnosed me as highly sensitive to gluten. I thought she was a quack, but I gave it a try. After three days of eating no gluten and feeling better, I decided to have a graham cracker. For the next several days, I suffered with a migraine, cramps and an awful “hangover” feeling. My advice is, even if the celiac test comes back negative, he might try going without gluten to see how he feels. My nutritionist had me add more lean protein and “safe” carbs such as quinoa and buckwheat to my diet. It’s been a year, and my symptoms and depression have much improved. -- CLP
