Day 1 of mandatory program saw stunning rise in volume of recyclables By Michael Kitch
VOl. 14 NO. 21
City gets easements to improve Fair & Court intersection By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — Improvements at the intersection of Fair Street and Court Street — among the most dangerous junctions in the city — are in the works after the Planning Board last night approved
plans to construct a new building and reconfigure the parking lot at the Faircourt Plaza Condominium on the corner. Many people still refer to the existing structure as the Aubuchon building, though the hardware company has been gone from that location for several years.
M.T. McCarthy of Unit 1 Realty Holdings, LLC, owner of the 2.71 acre lot, granted the city two easements in the course of planning the project. One easement consists of a triangle at the northeast (Aubuchon) corner of the intersection and the other of five
feet along the east side of Fair Street from Court Street to a curb cut providing access to the lot. Planning Director Shanna Saunders said that the Department of Public Works requested the easements in the course of reviewing plans for the project see INteRseCtION page 12

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — On Monday, the first day of the mandatory recycling program, the volume of recyclable materials collected on the route through the northern part of the city, including The Weirs, rose to 43-percent of the total solid waste stream, compared to 23-percent two weeks earlier. Ann Saltmarsh, who manages the recycling program at the Department of Public Works (DPW), described the increase as “stunning and very encouraging.” She said that the introduction of the program has led to unprecedented demand for complimentary green recycling bins. Since Monday, when stocks ran out, Saltmarsh said that she has taken the names and phone numbers of more than 350 residents seeking bins. She said that she has placed a rush order for 1,200 bins and expects delivery of some next week when she will begin distributing to the waiting list. Likewise, the inventory of 64-gallon wheeled recycling toters is shrinking. Saltmarsh said that

Judge asks police to justify BOLO alert after bodies found in Winnisquam By Gail OBer
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
FRANKLIN — A 6th Circuit Court, Franklin Division judge ordered the state to submit a reason why police issued a “be on the lookout for” (BOLO) alert for the man whose mother and brother were found murdered on May 27.
As of yesterday, the state had filed no response to the order dated on June 24. Shawn Carter, 31, formerly of 20 Dutile Road in the Winnisquam section of Belmont was detained by police at 2:41 p.m., which was about three hours after police discovered his mother and brother chopped to death in the home. Police stopped Carter
on Rte. 3 and determined his was operating after his license has been suspended. He has previously been convicted of operating without a license. The BOLO alert desribed the car Carter was thought to be driving and warned officers that he might be armed. see BOLO page 11

20 evacuated after flash flooding in Lebanon
Today High: 82 Chance of rain: 30% Sunrise: 5:07 a.m.
LEBANON (AP) — About 20 people were evacuated from an apartment complex in Lebanon Tuesday following flash flooding that washed out and damaged roads as the community braced for more rain. Just over 2 inches of rain fell in the area between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. Tuesday, following Monday night’s flooding from heavy rains, said. Gov. Maggie Hassan. Tuesday’s thunderstorm and flash flooding covered Slayton Hill Road with water and rocks making it impassable. Twenty people were evacuated from a nearby apartment complex following the evacuation of 15 people the night before, said Fire Chief Chris Christopoulos. He estimated that about 20 roads were impassable Tuesday evening. An emergency shelter had been set up at the Lebanon High School for people stranded by the flood damage. The state opened its Emergency Operations Center to monitor the area’s flooding, Hassan said. see FLOODING page 15

Defiant Egyptian president says he won’t step down CAIRO (AP) — His fate hanging in the balance, embattled President Mohammed Morsi vowed not to resign Tuesday, hours before a deadline to yield to the demands of millions of protesters or see the military suspend the constitution, disband parliament and install a new leadership. The Islamist leader demanded that the powerful armed forces withdraw their ultimatum, saying he rejected all “dictates” — from home or abroad. Outside on the streets, the sense that both sides are ready
to fight to the end sharpened, with clashes between his supporters and opponents that left at least seven dead. In an emotional speech aired live to the nation, Morsi, who a year ago was inaugurated as Egypt’s first freely elected president, pledged to protect his “constitutional legitimacy” with his life. He accused loyalists of his ousted autocratic predecessor Hosni Mubarak of exploiting the wave of protests to topple his regime and thwart democracy.
“There is no substitute for legitimacy,” said Morsi, who at times angrily raised his voice, thrust his fist in the air and pounded the podium. He warned that electoral and constitutional legitimacy “is the only guarantee against violence.” Morsi’s defiant statement showed that he and his Muslim Brotherhood are prepared to run the risk of challenging the army. It also entrenches the lines of confrontation between his Islamist supporters and Egypsee EGYPT page 8
WASHINGTON (AP) — In a major concession to business groups, the Obama administration Tuesday unexpectedly announced a one-year delay, until 2105, in a central requirement of the new health care law that medium and large companies provide coverage for their workers or face fines. The move sacrificed timely implementation of President Barack Obama’s
signature legislation but may help the administration politically by blunting a line of attack Republicans were planning to use in next year’s congressional elections. The employer requirements are among the most complex parts of the health care law, which is designed to expand coverage for uninsured Americans. “We have heard concerns about the complexity of the requirements and the need
for more time to implement them effectively,” Treasury Assistant Secretary Mark Mazur said in a blog post. “We have listened to your feedback and we are taking action.” Business groups were jubilant. “A pleasant surprise,” said Randy Johnson, senior vice president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. There was no inkling in advance of see OBAMACARE page 14
PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) — Fire crews battling a wildfire should identify escape routes and safe zones. They should pay close attention to the weather forecast. And they should post lookouts. Those are standards the government follows to protect firefighters, which were toughened after a wildfire tragedy in Colo-
rado nearly two decades ago. On Tuesday, investigators from around the U.S. were arriving in Arizona to examine whether 19 highly trained firefighters who perished over the weekend heeded those rules or ignored them and paid with their lives. In the nation’s biggest loss of firefighters since 9/11, violent wind gusts Sunday
turned what was believed to be a relatively manageable lightning-ignited forest fire in the town of Yarnell into a death trap that left no escape for the team of Hotshots willing to go to the hottest part of the blaze. The tragedy raised questions of whether the crew should have been pulled out much see FIREFIGHTERS page 23

U.S. home prices rise in Cop calls Zimmerman ‘credible’; judge disallows remark May by most in 7 years
WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. home prices jumped 12.2 percent in May from a year ago, the most in seven years. The increase suggests the housing recovery is strengthening. Real estate data provider CoreLogic said Tuesday that home prices rose from a year ago in 48 states. They fell only in Delaware and Alabama. And all but three of the 100 largest cities reported price gains. Prices rose 26 percent in Nevada to lead all states. It was followed by California (20.2 percent), Arizona (16.9 percent), Hawaii (16.1 percent) and Oregon (15.5 percent). CoreLogic also says prices rose 2.6 percent in May from April, the fifteenth straight month-over-month increase. Steady hiring and low mortgage rates have encouraged more Americans to buy homes. Greater demand, a limited number of homes for sale and fewer foreclosures have pushed prices higher. Prices are still 20 percent below the peak reached in April 2006, according to CoreLogic. Sales of previously occupied homes topped the 5 million mark in May for the first time in 3 ½ years. And the proportion of those sales that were “distressed” was at the lowest level in more than four years for the second straight month. Distressed home sales include foreclosures and short sales. A short sale is when a home sells for less than what is owed on the mortgage. see HOME SALES page 31
SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — A judge tossed out a detective’s statement that he found George Zimmerman credible in his description of fighting with Trayvon Martin, a decision that benefits prosecutors who are trying to discredit the defendant’s self-defense claims. Other efforts by prosecutors to attack Zimmerman’s story on Tuesday included the cross examination of a friend he called after shooting Martin and the testimony of a doctor who found the defendant’s injuries to be insignificant. They also sought to introduce school records that indicate Zimmerman had studied the state’s self-defense law, in another swipe at his truthfulness. Prosecutors took the unusual step of trying to pick apart the statements of an investigator they’d called as a prosecution witness because some of what he said appeared to help the defense. Prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda asked the judge to strike Detective Chris Serino’s statement that he thought Zimmerman was credible when he described how he got into a fight with Martin. Serino was the lead investigator on the case for the Sanford Police Department. De la Rionda argued the statement was improper because one witness isn’t allowed to evaluate another witness’s credibility. Defense attorney Mark O’Mara argued that it’s Serino’s job to decide whether Zimmerman was telling the truth. Judge Debra Nelson told jurors to disregard the statement. “This is an improper comment,” the judge said. Zimmerman has said he fatally shot the unarmed black 17-year-old in self-defense in February of 2012 because Martin was banging his head into a
concrete sidewalk. Zimmerman, 29, could get life in prison if convicted of second-degree murder. He has pleaded not guilty. To earn a conviction on the charge, prosecutors must prove there was ill will, spite or a depraved mind by the defendant. The prosecutor also questioned Serino about his opinion that Zimmerman didn’t display those negative emotions toward Martin. De la Rionda played back Zimmerman’s call to police to report the teen wailing through his gated community. Zimmerman uses an expletive, refers to “punks” and then says, “These a-------. They always get away.” The detective conceded that Zimmerman’s choice of words could be interpreted as being spiteful. The state has argued that Zimmerman profiled Martin from his truck and called a police dispatch number before he and the teenager got into a fight. Zimmerman has denied the confrontation had anything to do with race, as Martin’s family and their supporters have claimed. Zimmerman’s father is white and his mother is Hispanic. Several moves by prosecutors Tuesday were aimed at showing inconsistencies in Zimmerman’s statements. Prosecutors asked the judge to allow them to introduce school records showing Zimmerman took a class that addressed Florida’s self-defense law. They say it will show he had knowledge of the law, even though he claimed he didn’t in an interview with talk show host Sean Hannity. The interview see ZIMMERMAN page 15

Why Reagan Democrats drifted back home On Nov. 3, 1969, Richard Nixon, his presidency about to be broken by massive antiwar demonstrations, called on “the great silent majority” to stand by him for peace with honor in Vietnam. They did. Within days Nixon’s approval surged to 68 percent. The ferocious Republican partisan of the 1950s had won over millions of Democrats. Why? Because sons and brothers of those Democrats were doing much of the fighting in Vietnam. If Nixon was standing by them, they would stand by him. In 1972 Nixon would win 49 states. Ronald Reagan, backed by his “Reagan Democrats,” would win 44- and 49-state landslides. Yet since Reagan went home, Democrats have won the popular vote in five of six presidential elections. The New Majority is history. The Reagan Democrats have departed. What happened? Answer: For a generation, when forced to choose between Middle America and corporate America, on NAFTA, most-favored nation for China, and free trade, the GOP establishment opted to go with the Fortune 500. In the GOP the corporate conservative rides up front; the social, cultural and patriotic conservatives in the back of the bus. Consider who has benefited most from Republican-backed globalization. Was it not corporate executives and transnational companies liberated from the land of their birth and the call of patriotism? Under the rules of globalization, U.S. corporations could, without penalty or opprobrium, shut their factories, lay off their U.S. workers, erect new plants in Asia, produce their goods there, and bring them back free of any tariff to sell to consumers and kill the U.S. companies that elected to stay loyal to the U.S.A. They then used the profits from abandoning America to raise executive salaries to seven and eight figures. And how did the Reagan Democrats make out? Real wages of U.S. workers have not risen for 40 years. One in three U.S. manufacturing jobs vanished between 2000 and 2010. The nation that used to produce 96 percent of all it consumed depends now on foreigners for the clothes and shoes we wear, the TV sets we watch, the radios we listen to, the computers we use, the cars we drive. A nation that used to export twice what it imported has been running huge trade deficits for decades. China now holds $1 trillion in U.S. debt and can buy Smithfield hams out of the petty cash drawer. With 50,000 U.S. factories closing in this new century, the greatest manufacturing power in history has been hollowed out, as Beijing booms at our expense. Corporate America is building the new China that is pushing Uncle Sam out of the west-
ern Pacific. “Where did the ‘America’ in corporate America go?” asks Robert Patterson in National Review. The Bush aide hearkens back to “Engine Charlie” Wilson, Ike’s first secretary of defense, who said, “For years I have thought what was good for our country was good for General Motors and vice versa.” Wilson’s words were twisted by a capitalistbaiting press, but he saw GM as first and foremost an American company. Before Wilson there was William Knudson, the dollar-a-year man of FDR’s war effort who converted GM and Detroit into the great arsenal of democracy, a story movingly told by Arthur Herman in “Freedom’s Forge: How American Business Produced Victory in World War II.” “In the good old days,” writes Patterson, “Americans could at least count on business leaders being pro-American. Beloved or not, major corporations functioned as true stakeholders of America: fortifying American industry and building American factories, spreading American innovation, paying billions of dollars in American taxes and creating millions of high paying ‘family-wage’ jobs that helped create and sustain an expanding middle class.” And today? “No longer committed to a particular place, people, country or culture, our largest public companies have turned globalist, while abdicating the responsibility they once assumed to America and its workers.” Citing Joel Kotkin’s work, Patterson adds, “the worst offenders are Apple, Facebook, Google, the high-tech firms secluded in Silicon Valley, a dreamland where the information age glitterati make Gilded Age plutocrats look bourgeois.” Google has five times GM’s market capitalization but employs only onefourth the number of GM’s American workers. Steve Jobs’ Apple has “700,000 industrial serfs” working overseas. Since we bailed it out, GM has become “General Tso’s Motors,” creating 6,000 new jobs in China while shedding 78,000 U.S. jobs here. Marco Rubio today leads Senate Republicans in doing the bidding of corporate America, which, in payback for its campaign contributions, wants amnesty for 12 million illegal aliens. Agribusinesses need more peons. Restaurant chains want more waitresses, dishwashers, busboys. Construction companies want more ditch-diggers. Silicon Valley demands hundreds of thousands more H-1Bs — foreign graduate students who can be hired for half what an American engineer might need to support his family. “Merchants have no country,” said Thomas Jefferson. “The mere spot they stand on does not constitute so strong an attachment as that from which they draw their gains.” Amen to that.
LETTERS Convention could not borrow because it had not yet appropriated To The Daily Sun, Why do those responsible for enforcement or interpretation of laws ignore the affairs regarding Belknap County? The misdeeds are many, one of which is the Tax Anticipation Notes (TANs) for FY 2013. The need for additional money to sustain county services surfaced because the convention had not acted upon the appropriations for the ensuing FY 2013 annual budget. On Feb. 4, 2013 at 4:30 p.m., the Executive Committee motioned to authorize the county treasurer to borrow an amount not to exceed $10 million in TANs. Flaws: 1. Treasurer Michael Muzzey can only borrow money “upon the order of the commissioners” and accordingly was only able to explain the process in support of a request to borrow. However, he was unable to make an official request. (RSA 29:8 Borrowing) 2. On Feb. 4, 2013 at 4:30 p.m., at the Executive Committee’s meeting, the only commissioner present was Stephen H. Nedeau. Therefore, the vote by the Executive Committee is automatically VOID. 3. On Feb. 4. 2013 at 5:06 p.m., the convention at its meeting discussed the Tax Anticipation 10 million dollar borrowing to “keep the whole delegation informed”. However, no delegation vote was taken. 4. On Feb. 4, 2013, absent any kind of recess or adjournment of the convention’s meeting, a commission meeting occurred. The quorum of “Commissioners Edward D. Philpot Jr., John H. Thomas (via conference call) and Stephen H. Nedeau”, authorized the county treasurer to request borrowing of up to $10 million in Tax Anticipation Notes (TANs). (Motion carries) Motion by M/Philpot, S/Nedeau to
adjourn at 5:06 p.m.. Unanimous. Motion carries. 5. The Executive Committee prematurely voted to approve the borrowing, without the county treasurer possessing the commission’s order. Flaw. (RSA 29:8) 6. The approval of the county convention for such borrowing must be secured, unless the convention has not acted upon the appropriations for the ensuing year. No vote regarding 2013 TAN by the convention has any validity prior to the adoption of the budget. 7. On Feb. 19, 2013, a vote by the convention was taken to “authorize the county treasurer to issue an amount not to exceed $10 million in TANs for FY 2013 for Belknap County”. Motion carried. This vote has no validity because the convention had not acted upon the appropriations for the ensuing year. Moreover, on February 8, 2013 a Right-to-Know petition, per RSA 91-A:7, was filed with Belknap Superior Court. The courts shall give proceedings under this chapter high priority on the court calendar. Our challenge has neither a date for an oral/evidentiary hearing, nor a substantive order for over 143 day since filing. Why should plaintiff have to motion the court to place this suit on the trial calendar (SC Rule 13)? On April 1, 2013, the Petition For Declaratory Judgment Per RSA 91-A:7 was transferred to Grafton County Superior Court regarding the use of secret paper ballots. Our petition, a challenge of the use of paper ballots in open meeting, in effect, is a challenge that any action by Belknap County’s Convention and its Executive Committee since December 2012, 2012 are null and void.

LETTERS U.S. was and is founded by Declaration as a Nation Under God To The Daily Sun, The three most important documents relating to the foundation of our republic are the Declaration of Independence (1776), the Constitution (1787) and the Bill of Rights (created 1789, adopted 1790). The most familiar and most often quoted section among these three organic documents comes from the Declaration and is as follows: “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their CREATOR with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” The true source of our two most important rights, life and liberty, are singled out and identified in our nation’s founding document, the Declaration of Independence. The true source of these rights is not man nor the writ of man nor is it the Declaration itself or the Constitution or the Bill of Rights. The source of these rights is also not vested in Congress or the courts or any government agency or functionary. The true source of our rights to life and liberty is our Creator God. This self-evident truth as applied to our nation cannot be changed because, unlike the Constitution, the Declaration cannot be amended. It was not intended by the founders to be amended. The statement that legally founded The United States of America is found within the last paragraph of The Declaration of Independence and is as follows: “We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of America, in general Congress, assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the World (God) for the rectitude (making right) of our intentions (to found a new nation), do, in the name, and by the authority of the good people of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, that these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be free and independent states: that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and as free and independent States, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliance, establish commerce, and do all other acts and things which independent States of right may do. And for the support of this Declaration, with
a firm reliance on Divine Providence, (superintending protection of God) we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.” A founding statement is not to be found in the Constitution and it should thus be self-evident that the Constitution does not stand alone without the Declaration. The Declaration is a binding founding contract and, unlike the Constitution, has no provision for amendment. To deny the self-evident truth that we are a nation founded under God is to reject and nullify the Declaration compact, and this would leave us with a Constitution with no founding article or covenant. The Constitution superseded the Articles of Confederation but did not nullify the Declaration. We first had to have a nation in order to contract laws for that nation. It cannot be the reverse. That is obvious when looking at the Constitution itself: The Preamble begins, “We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union...” The inclusion of “more perfect...” implies the Union was already formed. The clincher is in the last sentence of the Constitution: “DONE in convention by the unanimous consent of the States present the seventeenth day of September in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and eighty seven, and of the independence of the United States of America the twelfth.” Eleven years as a functioning United States of America put us into the twelfth year. Whether the reader agrees or disagrees with the principles presented here does not matter. Their inclusion in our non-amendable founding document is an undeniable matter of fact. Even if our federal government, all civil authority, and/or the courts deny the existence of these principles, take away our First Amendment rights to exercise and express these precepts, and prosecute us for even mentioning them, they still cannot erase the fact that The United States of America was and is founded by the Declaration of Independence as a Nation Under God. Otherwise, explain why have we been celebrating the forth of July as the date of the founding of the United States of America since 1776? George Brunstad Meredith

to keep them in for the entire show. Even firecrackers pose a risk to your hearing as they produce sounds starting at more than 40 decibels above what OSHA considers unsafe which presents the risk of irreversible ear damage. When listening to smartphones and MP3 players, keep them at a low volume. This can be a tough thing to monitor with children and teens but it’s important to limit their volume with the use of headphones and earbuds. If they can’t understand a conversational-level voice at arm’s length away, it’s too loud. Protect against swimmer’s ear by making sure to dry ears completely after swimming. Do your best to drain any residual water from your ear canal. Also, monitor the bacterial count when swimming at the beach. Many beaches post signs. Stay out of the water on the days that the bacterial counts are high. If you are still concerned, a few drops of white vinegar in each ear canal will help reduce troubles. We often take our hearing for granted, but the truth is that hearing loss, especially when left unaddressed, affects our quality of life. Hearing is a significant connection to the world, and we should do all we can to protect it. The cells of the ear that are the first to be damaged or die are those that allow us to hear higher-frequency sounds clearly, like the sounds of birds singing and children speaking. Ironically, these are the sounds my clients report missing the most. Repeated exposure to loud noise, over an extended period of time, presents serious risks to hearing health as well. If you have to shout over the noise to be heard by someone within arm’s length, the noise is probably in the dangerous range. Warning signs include pain in your ears after leaving a noisy area, ringing or buzzing (tinnitus) in your ears immediately after see next page
You’ve got to ask yourself one question: ‘Do I feel LUCKY?’
Author Michael Tougias will present a slide presentation of his book, “Fatal Forecast: An Incredible True Tale of Disaster and Survival at Sea”. In November 1980, two fishing vessels set out from Cape Cod to Georges Bank. The National Weather Service had forecast typical fall weather in the area, even though the organization knew its only weather buoy at George’s Bank was malfunctioning. Soon after the boats Michael Tougia reached the fishing ground, they were hit with s hurricane force winds and massive, 60-foot waves that battered them for hours. Using slides from the actual storm and rescue, Tougias will explain one of the most remarkable survival stories ever recorded. This is an edge-of-your-seat tale you won’t want to miss.

To The Daily Sun, As schools let out for summer and vacation gets into full swing, I urge readers to protect their own, and their children’s, hearing. Noise-induced hearing loss cannot be reversed. Summer brings a chorus of sweet sounds. But it also brings noise that can be harmful to our ears. Prolonged exposure to the roar of lawn mowers, power tools, motorized recreational vehicles, target shooting, concerts, loud sporting events, and fireworks all can wreak havoc on our hearing. In fact, the single bang of a firecracker at close range can permanently damage hearing in an instant, making it forever more difficult to hear the subtler sounds of summer. While many noisy recreational activities are part of summer’s delight, it is extremely important to take precautions to ensure that these activities do not damage our hearing. Noise is one of the most common causes of hearing loss; both the loudness of the noise and the length of time you’re exposed to it matter. However, by taking some simple measures, people can protect their hearing while still enjoying their summer activities. Do all you can to limit the length of time you spend in a noisy environment. When you do participate in noisy activities, alternate them with periods of quiet. When you know you will be exposed to loud sounds, use earplugs.

LETTERS Delegation needs to take the same tour selectboards are taking To The Daily Sun, I would like to thank the County Commissioners, Deb Shackett and the staff at Belknap County Corrections for a very informative and educational tour on Thursday. In past years the commissioners would go out to towns and present updates called “County Conversations” to selectboards around the county. This year your selectboards were invited to go to them and see what the different departments actually do, what we have accomplished with infrastructure and programs and what our needs are going forward. Which was a great idea; I personally learned new things about county and observed some interesting things. We met at the court house and stopped at the several areas including Youth Services, County Attorney, Register of Deeds, and the court room. The Youth Services gave us an update on new programs that they are implementing with a 68-77 percent success rate for adults and Juveniles. Great news! We observed thousands of books dating back to the 1700s to book #1 at the Registry. We also toured the exterior, new roof top heat pump units (viewed from the ground!), new windows and a new composite roof that has a 50 year warranty, all of this being paid with federal stimulus money. (I can hear two guys ranting “it’s not free”) We then drove over to the County from preceding page exposure to noise or you suddenly have difficulty understanding speech after exposure to noise (you can hear people talking but cannot understand them). Please enjoy your summer, but not at the risk of your hearing. Family gatherings, visiting grandchildren, attending summer’s many concerts and the sound of summer song birds are the things you will miss one day if you don’t take measures to protect your hearing today.

Complex. Starting in the administration wing which was renovated to allow those staff to work in a secure environment, we walked through the entire building. We then had a tour of the Sheriff Dept. and dispatch area which was also very interesting. Last stop was the corrections facility. Commissioner Thomas informed us that the building has had a span of construction projects which range from 1890 to 1988. Entering from the sheriff area, we walked down a long hallway and up a narrow set of stairs to “the old crutch factory” where there are 13 or so cots to house the women. Also up there is a bathroom with a shower, sink and toilet. It was also very hot. The women had been recently been moved to the “gym” because of the temperature in the crutch factory. The rest of the facility was also viewed and I will simply say that the conditions are unsanitary, unsafe and unacceptable for the employees and for those incarcerated. I could go on for 20 pages describing what I observed but that is not the intent of this letter. The unacceptable behavior in the county arena has to change. The duty of the County Commissioners, which is the oldest form of county government in America, are to approve budgets, oversee spending and hire county employees, among other duties. The County Delegation seems to want both jobs. First off, the county budget is the responsibility of the commission, Second, how in the hell can the delegation control the budget when they have no idea what they are dealing with? For example, I asked how many delegation members had taken a tour like the one we had and the number was three — back in 2008. Really?! I suggest that the delegation schedule the very same tour that the selectboards are taking, I know they will learn something. The situation with the county corrections facility is to a point where the answer is not yes or no, but rather how. There is a big difference between liberal and humanitarian and there is a big difference between spend and investment. Selectman Carla Horne Meredith

Comes to the Meredith Bay Colony Club
Friday, July 5th at 2:00pm FREE and Open to the Public
Mary Todd was born of an aristocratic family in Lexington, KY. She married the man she loved, Abraham Lincoln, against the wishes of her family. Together they worked to achieve their goal of becoming President and First Lady. Sparkling with humor and insight, Sally Mummey, as Mary Todd Lincoln, shares stories of life and love; triumphs and challenges; and life in the White House during the tumultuous years of the Civil War. One of the finest presenters of Mrs. Lincoln in the country today in looks, dress, and first-person presentation, Mummey portrays a lively, accurate, and wellresearched Mary Todd Lincoln in this Chautauqua living history program. As a historian, Mummey brings to life the complicated contrasts of this most famous and historically significant First Lady. Through the use of authentically reproduced clothing (from the corset to the parasol), lectures and storytelling, authentic speeches, and informal, spontaneous dialogue, she brings to life the many facets of this unconventional modern woman of the 1860s, who was perhaps the most misunderstood of her time. Mummey remains in character throughout her performance and her presentations appeal to audiences of all ages.

Shaheen in Lakes Region to tout importance of promoting N.H. tourism overseas By Michael Kitch
LACONIA — Braving foul weather, United States Senator Jeanne Shaheen, accompanied by local representatives of the travel and tourism industry, cruised Lake Winnipesaukee aboard the M/S Mount Washington yesterday. Speaking briefly before the ship weighed anchor at Weirs Beach, Shaheen stressed the importance of travel and tourism to New Hampshire, noting that the hospitality industry represents the second largest sector of the state economy and provides employment for more than 60,000 of the state’s residents. With its seacoast, lakes and mountains, she said that offers a variety of natural, cultural and recreational attractions for visitors. “Anyone who is traveling can find whatever they’re looking for in New Hampshire,” said the senator. The purpose of the senator’s visit was to highlight Brand USA, the public-private private partnership that promotes the nation overseas in an effort to attract more foreign visitors to our shores. Brand USA was established by the federal Travel Promotion Act of 2010, of which Shaheen
was one of 53 Senate co-sponsors. She announced that Susan Presby of the Mount Washington Cog Railway has been named to the advisory board of Brand USA. , “Visitors from abroad stay longer and spend more,” Shaheen said by way of introducing Mike Fullerton, director of public affairs of Brand USA. Fullerton said that Brand USA initially targeted three markets — the United Kingdom, Canada and Japan — augmenting the promotional efforts of the New Hampshire Division of Travel and Tourism which touts the state in the same three countries. This spring the advertising campaign was extended to Australia, Brazil, China, Germany, Mexico and South Korea. Together the nine markets account for three-quarters of all visitors from abroad. In 2012, some 67-million international visitors came to the United States, — seven-percent more than 2011 — where they spent $168-billion. Amy Landry, executive director of the Lakes Region Association, said that expenditures by tourists visiting the Lakes Region climbed nearly 9 percent in 2012, led by a 10 percent jump in Belknap County. She said

Belmont woman charged Planning Board has no big issues with using with theft of cable TV vacant city land in South End for a dog park service at apt. building By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
BELMONT — A former Church Street resident was charged last week for allegedly trying to steal cable television services. Jennifer Mitchell, 39, formerly of 36 Church St. Apt. 202 is charged with one count of theft of services, criminal mischief (vandalism), and criminal liability for the conduct of another. Police said other people in her building called them on June 27 to report someone appeared to be fiddling with the cable box. According to Lt. Rich Mann, a police officer driving down Church Street then saw Mitchell and an unknown male near the cable box with a pryingtype device. He said the two walked in opposite directions and the lone officer followed Mitchell to her apartment. Mann said Mitchell wouldn’t initially come out of the apartment but turned herself in at 12:39 p.m. at the Belmont Police Station. To date, he said the male hasn’t been identified. MetroCast Cablevision said the damage to the box was about $500. — Gail Ober
1st of 4 summer fireworks displays over Weirs Beach is tonight at midnight
LACONIA — The Weirs Action Committee has announced the 2013 schedule for public fireworks displays over Weirs Beach. The first spectacular will be start a minute before midnight on Wednesday, July 3. Future displays will be set off (all at 10 p.m.) on Friday, July 26, Friday, August 9 and Sunday, September 1. There is no charge for the viewing. Visitors are encouraged to watch from the north end of the beach, from the public docks, or from the boardwalk. As the fireworks reflect onto the lake below, a flotilla of boats will light up the lake with colorful navigation lights. The July 3rd show is sponsored by the City of Laconia. And various area businesses have joined together with the Weirs Action Committee to present the Friday night fireworks shows on July 26 and August 9. The Labor Day weekend show on September 1st is sponsored jointly by the Weirs Action Committee and the Half Moon Enterprises. For further information about the fireworks, please visit the fireworks webpage at WeirsBeach. com; or call the Lakes Region Chamber information booth at 603-366-4770; or e-mail the Weirs Action Committee at email@example.com. from preceding page moved out in increased marches in Cairo and other cities. Morsi’s supporters have stepped up warnings that it will take bloodshed to dislodge him. While Morsi has stuck to a stance that he is defending democracy in Egypt, many of his Islamist backers have presented the fight as one to protect Islam. “Seeking martyrdom to prevent the ongoing coup is what we can offer as a sign of gratitude to previous martyrs who died in the revolution,” Brotherhood stalwart Mohammed el-Beltagy wrote Tuesday in his official Facebook page. Political violence was more widespread on Tuesday, with multiple clashes between the two camps in Cairo as well as in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria and other cities. A march by Morsi supporters outside Cairo University came under fire from gunmen on nearby rooftops. At least seven people were killed in Cairo, according to hospital and security officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media.
LACONIA — Despite the concerns of one abutter, the Planning Board expressed no major misgivings when Happy Tails Dog Park of Belmont presented its plans for a dog park on city-owned property in the South End for a design review last night. Brie Elliott, president of Happy Tails, a nonprofit corporation, told the board that the organization has prepared a plan to build the park on part of a 25-acre rectangular tract located between the end of Spruce Street and Growtth Road. The city purchased the land in 1976 with a Land, Water, Conservation grant from the federal government, which restricts the property to recreational uses. Elliott said that Happy Tails seeks to lease four
or five acres at the southeast end of the property to house a parking area, access paths and two fenced dog parks, one of 1.3 acres divided in half for small and large dogs and another 40 feet by 20 feet for puppies. She said that the park would be larger than most dog parks in the state and the play pen for puppies would be unique. The park would be approximately 640 feet from the nearest residence, but closer to Scotia Technology at the foot of Growtth Road, in the Lakes Industrial Park. However, Elliott said that the hours when the park was likely to be most heavily used would not coincide with the workday at the plant. Elliott explained that there are nine urban dog parks in the state — in Concord, Portsmouth, Hooksee next page

Hassan signs bill banning 1 ounce, or less, lead jigs CONCORD (AP) — A bill banning a type of lead fishing tackle blamed for killing loons will be law in New Hampshire in three years. Gov. Maggie Hassan signed the bill Tuesday that gives retailers time to sell the banned tackle to people living in states where it is legal. The ban takes effect June 1, 2016, and prohibits the use of lead-weighted hooks known as jigs that weigh an ounce or less. Selling the banned jigs will be a violation with a fine of up to $250. The current law prohibits lead jigs that are an inch long or less. New Hampshire lists the loon as a threatened species and was the first state to pass a partial ban on lead tackle in 1998. “Ensuring a bright economic future for New Hampshire and maintaining our high quality of life means protecting our wildlife and preserving what makes our state special. This commonsense, biparti-
san measure will help protect our fragile loon population from deadly lead poisoning, preserving an important part of the natural beauty of New Hampshire that drives our tourism economy,” Hassan said in a statement. The New Hampshire Loon Preservation Committee says 49 percent of adult loons die as a result of ingesting lead fishing tackle and half of those deaths are from tackle that is currently legal. Loons typically don’t breed for the first six years, making the loss of adults devastating to population growth. Bill opponents argued they weren’t convinced the measure will reduce loon deaths, which they said vary annually. Some also worry the ban will hurt local businesses and potentially could mean a loss of bass fishing tournaments in New Hampshire that draw competitors from around the country. Supporters said New Hampshire’s loons are a tourist draw that needs to be protected.
Governor agrees to raise I-93 speed limit to 70 from Canterbury north

CONCORD (AP) — Starting in January, drivers can go a little faster on parts of New Hampshire’s Interstate 93. Gov. Maggie Hassan signed a bill into law Tuesday raising the speed limit effective Jan. 1 from 65 miles-per-hour to 70 miles-per-hour on I-93 from mile maker 45 between Exits 17 and 18 in Canterbury to the Vermont border. There’s an exception: the stretch through Franconia Notch. Hassan encouraged drivers to obey the new limit and keep their safety in mind and the safety of others. Lawmakers had considered and rejected raising
the speed limit on other stretches of highway. The only increase approved was for the stretch of I-93 that Hassan agreed to on Tuesday. “We must always be cautious when considering speed-limit increases in order to maintain the safety of our citizens and of visitors using our highways,” Hassan said in a statement. “The limited nature of the 5 mile-per-hour speed-limit increase in a targeted region of the state, along with the overwhelming, bipartisan support for the measure, makes me comfortable with signing this measure into law, bringing the speed limit more in line with the habits of our rural travelers.”
from preceding page sett, Manchester, Derry, Rochester, Nashua, Conway and Dover — seven of them on municipal property, but only four managed by the municipality. Happy Tails would ask to lease the land at no charge while itself bearing all the costs of constructing, managing and maintaining the dog park, including the insurance required to indemnify the city. The agreement would run for five years, after which the city would have the option to either renew or cancel the lease or assume management of the dog park. The agreement between the city of Manchester and the Manchester Dog Park Association, she suggested, could serve as a model for Laconia. Brian Gilbert of Edwards Street told the board
that he owns a 10 acre lot abutting the proposed dog park, which is zoned for residential use. He feared that if the park is approved the value of the property and the opportunity to develop it would be diminished. He also expected to become “the receptor of an awful lot of barking.” Gilbert said he believed there is a dog park at the New Hampshire Humane Society on Meredith Center Road and suggested “use that. I think you’re going to ruin this property by letting this happen.” After the meeting Elliott spoke with Gilbert, explaining that Humane Society chose not to open a dog park because it preferred to pursue other priorities and not bear the cost of insurance. see next page

BOLO from page one Carter has been held in the Belknap County House of Corrections on $200 cash and $2,000 personal recognizance bail since the day of his arrest but he has not been charged with any crimes relating to the murder of his relatives. His defense team appeared with Carter in Franklin on June 11 — the original date set for his trail for operating after suspension — and made a motion to dismiss the case because the state never provided the reason for the traffic stop in the first place. Gordon verbally gave the state additional time to respond in writing to the motion to dismiss but issued his written order for a “timely” justification on June 24. Belmont Police went to the Carter residence at 20 Dutile Road, next to Winnisquam Marine, around 11 a.m. to make a requested well-being check. The responding officer found Priscilla Carter and Timothy Carter “chopped” to death. To date, no arrests have been made in the double homicide but Belmont Police said in a Twitter feed a few from preceding page Elliott said that the Parks and Recreation Commission had granted “conceptual approval” to the project and that she intends to present the plan to the City Council when it meets on July 22. If the proposal is welcomed a fully engineered site plan would be prepared for the final approval of the Planning Board and Parks and Recreation Commission and an agreement drafted for the City Council.
days after the discovery of the bodies that they believed the general public was in no immediate danger. Carter has appeared in district court twice on the operating after suspension charge that occurred in Tilton — the day after his arrest in the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division and on June 11 in the Franklin Court. In Laconia, Judge Jim Carroll ordered Carter held on $200 cash bail and set a trial date of June 11 in the Franklin Court, which has jurisdiction but didn’t have a sitting judge available on May 28 — the day of Carter’s first appearance. Carter’s trial for operating after suspension is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on July 12. The file indicates the trial could be “long” and has set aside three hours for it. Carter is also charged with one felony count of sales of narcotic drugs, and the probable cause for it is also scheduled for July 12. The alleged sale took place nearly 18 months ago in Tilton and Gordon ruled that there is no compelling reason for cash-only bail on the drug charge.

Witness describes Bulger’s involvement with him in cocaine-dealing business BOSTON (AP) — He returned to his South Boston neighborhood after seven years in prison for armed robbery to a warm greeting from James “Whitey” Bulger. “Welcome home,” the reputed gangster told William Shea when they met on a street corner. Then he passed him $500 cash. During the next decade, Shea worked with Bulger to build a booming cocaine-dealing business, Shea testified Tuesday at Bulger’s trial. But, he said, Bulger created a charade to make it look like he wasn’t involved in the operation in order to protect his local reputation. Shea also said his friendly relationship with Bulger took an icy turn after Shea said he wanted out. “You remember what happened to Bucky Barrett?” Shea said Bulger told him, referring to a safecracker whom prosecutors say Bulger killed. Bulger has pleaded not guilty to charges against him, which include participating in 19 slayings in the 1970s and ‘80s while he was allegedly running the notorious Winter Hill Gang. The 83-year-old fled Boston in 1994 and wasn’t captured until 2011. During Tuesday’s proceedings, the last day of testimony until Monday, prosecutors also played recorded jailhouse conversations. During one of the three recordings, Bulger mimics the “rat-tat-tat” sound of a machine gun when speaking about a local bar owner, Edward Connors.
Prosecutors say Bulger and his partner, Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi, gunned down Connors in a phone booth because they were afraid he’d tie them to the killing of a Bulger rival. “The guy in the phone booth. Rat-tat-tat!” Bulger says during the 2012 conversation with a relative. He also remarks that someone threw his name “into the mix” about that murder, before making the “rattat-tat” sound again. Earlier Tuesday, Connors’ daughter, Karen Smith, who was 7 when her father was killed, gave emotional testimony during which she recalled learning her father was dead by seeing the picture of his sprawled body on TV. Shea’s testimony, by contrast, was at times lighthearted and even nostalgic. Shea was asked to point out Bulger and identified him as “the young fella there,” causing Bulger to chuckle. Shea said he thinks Bulger reached out to him when he got out of prison in 1977 because he was in the 5th Street Crew, a violent South Boston outfit that had tensions with Bulger. “He was making a sincere effort ... to absorb us,” Shea said. Shea said he later saw a money-making opportunity by reining in drug dealers who were operating independently and taking a cut of their earnings. He approached Bulger, who agreed to the plan, but didn’t want to be linked to dealing.

Instead, Shea testified, Bulger would tell people being intimidated by Shea’s group to just deal with it, and they’d capitulate. Bulger later helped him find suppliers as they moved from dealing low-grade marijuana to highquality cocaine. By the mid-1980s, Shea said, they were making $100,000 a week, and Bulger was getting a $10,000 weekly cut. Shea said he wanted to get out of operation by 1986 or so, believing he’d earned enough and police were on to him. Bulger objected, saying Shea was essential to the operation. But Shea would leave for Florida for weeks at time, trying to show Bulger things could run without him. After one trip, an agitated Bulger mentioned Barrett. During one of their last meetings, Bulger, Flemmi and another gang member drove Shea to an empty housing project, where Bulger directed him to a con-
INTERSECTION from page one and indicated that improvements would be made a priority. Saunders said that the easements would enable Department of Public Works to open the intersection and improve sight lines both to traffic turning from Court Street on to Fair Street and entering Court from Fair Street and perhaps provide space for a turning lane on Fair Street. According to the tax card, the existing building on the lot consists of nearly 19,000-square-feet divided into commercial condominium units housing Skate Escape, Little Caesar’s Pizza, a laundry operation run by LRGHealthcare, manufacturing space and several warehouses. The section of the existing building protruding from the front facing Court Street, currently occupied by Skate Escape, will be demolished, along with the northeast corner of the building. The remainder of the building will be reconfigured into six commercial condominium units, leaving the existing units in tact. The new 6,895-square foot building, which will house Advanced Auto Parts, will be constructed on the southwest quarter of the lot facing Court Street, with a parking area between the entrance and the sidewalk. To accommodate the additional business, 26 parking spaces will be added to the property, bringing the total to 109.

‘Healthy’ Lackey pitches Red Sox past Padres, 4-1 BOSTON (AP) — John Lackey had a simple explanation for his recent resurgence. “I’m healthy,” Lackey said after pitching eight strong innings for Boston in a 4-1 win over the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night. “I’ve been locating the ball pretty good, but it has happened before, you know.” Not this frequently, and not recently. Lackey (6-5) won his fourth straight decision and has a winning record for the first time since late in 2011. He missed all of last season recovering from Tommy John surgery and after an early scare in April appears to be throwing the way he did a few years ago when he was one of the top pitchers in the American League. Lackey struck out six and scattered six hits while walking just one. The only run he allowed was a solo homer by Jesus Guzman in the seventh. “He’s been a good pitcher for a long time,” Boston catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia said. “It’s just a matter of being healthy, having a feel, having the velocity back. And that’s what he’s doing.” Boston fans, who repeatedly booed Lackey as he struggled through injuries two years ago, cheered him as he left the mound after the top of the eighth.
“I’m just having a good time pitching,” Lackey said. “I’m not really worried about what slack I need to pick up or any of that. I missed a full season. I’m enjoying feeling good and enjoying competing.” Koji Uehara replaced Lackey in the ninth and struck out two, earning his fifth save for the Red Sox, who improved to 6-1 during a nine-game homestand. The Padres have lost four straight and six of seven. San Diego rookie Robbie Erlin (1-1) threw 93 pitches over 3 2-3 innings before getting pulled after Brandon Snyder’s bases-clearing double in the third put Boston up 3-0. “He had to work for every out he had. It drove his pitch-count up,” manager Bud Black said. “The ball off the wall with the bases loaded was the backbreaker. But Robbie competed. For a young pitcher coming in here, he didn’t back down, didn’t scare off, went at them.” Lackey last had a winning record at 12-11 in late 2011, when he finished the season 12-12 and missed all of last year recovering from surgery. He needed only six pitches to get out of the sixth inning before Guzman spoiled the shutout bid in the seventh with a shot off the top of the Green Monster in left. The umpires held up Guzman at second briefly before conferring and ruling it was a homer without going to video replay. Boston fans booed the call, but replays showed it was correct. David Ortiz hit his 500th career double in the first and Jose Iglesias added an RBI single in the sixth for Boston. Erlin was solid through the first three innings, but could not get himself out of trouble in the fourth. Ortiz led off with a single and Mike Napoli followed with a walk. After striking out Jonny Gomes for the first out, Erlin walked Saltalamacchia to load the bases for Snyder. Snyder forced Erlin to throw nine pitches, fouling off five before hitting a double off the upper right corner of the Green Monster — just a few feet more to the right and it would have been a grand slam. Snyder was thrown out trying to stretch out a triple, which would have left Erlin liable for another possible run. Erlin was done for the night after Snyder tagged his 93rd pitch. He allowed three runs on five hits and three walks in 3 2-3 innings. “I felt like I was one pitch away the entire time until that last pitch,” said Erlin, who was making his third career start. “I tried to go inside, left it belthigh over the plate, and he hit it off the wall.” Iglesias added an RBI single in the sixth to put Boston up 4-0, then the Padres broke up Lackey’s shutout bid on Guzman’s homer to left in the seventh. Boston nearly took the lead in the first when Dustin Pedroia walked and tried to score from first base on Ortiz’ double down the right-field line. But Chris Denorfia hit second baseman Logan Forsythe with the relay and Forsythe threw out Pedroia at the plate. OBAMACARE from page 2 the administration’s action, he said. Under the law, companies with 50 or more workers must provide affordable coverage to their full-time employees or risk a series of escalating tax penalties if just one worker ends up getting governmentsubsidized insurance. Originally, that requirement was supposed to take effect next Jan. 1. Business groups complained since the law passed that the provision was too complicated. For instance, the law created a new definition of full-time workers, those putting in 30 hours or more. But such complaints until now seemed to be going unheeded. The delay in the employer requirement does not affect the law’s requirement that individuals carry health insurance starting next year or face fines. That so-called individual mandate was challenged all the way to the Supreme Court, which ruled last year that requirement was constitutional since the penalty would be collected by the Internal Revenue see next page

from preceding page Service and amounted to a tax. Tuesday’s action is sure to anger liberals and labor groups, but it could provide cover for Democratic candidates in next year’s congressional elections. The move undercuts Republican efforts to make the overhaul and the costs associated with new requirements a major issue in congressional races. Democrats are defending 21 Senate seats to the Republicans’ 14, and the GOP had already started to excoriate Senate Democrats who had voted for the health law in 2009. Senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett cast the decision as part of an effort to simplify data reporting requirements. She said since enforcing the coverage mandate is dependent on businesses reporting about their workers’ access to insurance, the administration decided to postpone the reporting requirement, and with it, the mandate to provide coverage. “We have and will continue to make changes as needed,” Jarrett wrote in a White House blog post. “In our ongoing discussions with businesses we have heard that you need the time to get this right. We are listening.” Republicans called it a validation of their belief that the law is unworkable and should be repealed.

Special restrictions, traffic pattern to be in effect during Meredith fireworks display MEREDITH — With final preparations underway for the town’s Fourth of July fireworks display on Thursday, the Greater Meredith Program is reminding citizens about the special safety precautions that will be in force during the display which is scheduled to begin at 9:30 p.m. The Fire Marshall for the State of New Hampshire requires 300 feet to be isolated around the area of the fireworks, so vehicles or spectators are permitted inside that perimeter. To comply with safety regulations, the Meredith Boat Ramp and Town Docks will be closed, starting
at 7 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. In addition, Route3 from Lake Street to Route 25 will be closed at 8:30 p.m. and re-opened at approximately 10:30 p.m. Traffic will be diverted from Route3 onto Lake Street and then to Main Street to avoid the closed section of Route 3. Greater Meredith Program officials are appealing for the public’s cooperation during the set-up and display of the fireworks. In the event that Thursday night’s display is not held because of rain it will take place on Friday evening.
MOULTONBOROUGH — Former state Agricultural Commissioner Steve Taylor will give a talk, “The Great Sheep Boom and Its Enduring Legacy on the NH Landscape,” on Wednesday, July 10, sponsored by the Lakes Region Conservation Trust, in partnership with the New Hampshire Humanities Council. In a brief 30-year period in the early 19th century the New Hampshire countryside became home to hundreds of thousands of sheep. Production of wool became a lucrative business, generating fortunes and providing the only time of true agricultural prosperity in the state’s history. It left behind a legacy of fine architecture and thousands of miles of rugged stonewalls. During this morning presentation, Steve Taylor will discuss how farmers overcame enormous
challenges to make sheep husbandry succeed, the forces from beyond New Hampshire which led to the demise of the industry, and the social consequences that lasted a century. The program will take place in the upstairs of the Carriage House at the Castle in the Clouds beginning at 9 a.m. The program will conclude at 10:30 am. This program is open to all and there is no preregistration required. As with all LRCT programs, the property is accessed via Ossipee Park Road. All LRCT educational programs and guided excursions are free to all. For additional information about the program, or to request directions, contact LRCT at firstname.lastname@example.org; 253-3301. For those interested in viewing historic landscape features first-hand, there will be a guided excursion following the presentation. This outdoor program will be limited to 30 participants and preregistration is required. Contact LRCT (email@example.com; 253-3301) to reserve a spot. During the walk, Steve Taylor and LRCT’s Property Adopter Larry DeGeorge will lead participants on trails within LRCT’s Castle in the Clouds Conservation Area and share some of the history of this landscape with participants. Additional detailed information about the outdoor portion of the program will be provided to those who preregister.

Rock /blues band to play during dinner-dance Fri. at Beans and Greens GILFORD — New Hampshire’s own Crunchy Western Boys Band will be performing Friday, July 5 at the Thunder Moon Dinner and Dance at Beans and Greens Farm. The event runs from 6:30-10 p.m. Tickets for the Thunder Moon Dinner and Dance are $20 for adults and $5 for children under 5 years old. For those who to pass on dinner and just take in the music, tickets are $10. Reservations are strongly recommended. No alcohol will be served as this is a BYOB event. The band regularly plays their own versions of Bob Marley and U2 songs, but band member Steve McBrian points out “Our music is 90 percent original,” adding, “We write a lot of our own stuff. We aren’t really bluegrass. We have a rock and pop sensibility too.” CWB, as they are known to their fans, is a prime example of what it is like to be well rounded and ungrounded. Perhaps the best way to describe this group is fun...”it’s clear they enjoy what they’re doing”, says Martina Howe of Beans and Greens Farm. The group, made up of Morris Manning, Jim McHugh, Jacob Stern and
Steve McBrian, play only acoustic instruments including banjos, fiddles, harmonicas and guitars. “I’m always joking that we’re the loudest acoustic band on the planet,” said McBrian, who, in addition to performing in the band, also handles their public relations. Just as their music is rather eclectic and undefinable, so too is their fan base. McBrian is still sometimes amazed at the mix of people he sees when he looks out over the audience. There’s another thing that amazes McBrian, too, “We get people to dance.” This can be an elusive accomplishment for some musical groups, but not for these guys. “People tell us they aren’t going to dance, just listen, but by the end of the night it’s funny to see how many of them have changed their minds”, reports Andy Howe, recalling last year’s Thunder Moon event held at Beans and Greens Farm under the then-new Pavilion. It was so much fun last year that the Howes have decided to do it again for the Independence Day weekend crowd, offering a lengthy menu made up completely of foods which were all produced and prepared right on the

farm by their own staff. “We guarantee there’s plenty on this menu and that no one will go away hungry”, Martina interjects. From a choice between barbeque or teriyaki chicken, to gazpacho, a mix of vegetable, kale
chips, hand cut french fries and more, not to mention a choice of delectable desserts for anyone who leaves room. After a meal like that, people will need to get up and dance to burn off some calories.

FIREFIGHTERS from page 2 earlier and whether all the usual precautions would have made any difference at all in the face of tripledigit temperatures, erratic winds and tinderbox conditions that caused the fire to explode. In 1994, 14 firefighters died on Colorado’s Storm King Mountain, and investigators afterward found numerous errors in the way the blaze was fought. In the Storm King tragedy, a rapid change in weather sent winds raging, creating 100-foot tongues of flame. Firefighters were unable to escape, as a wall of fire raced up a hillside. The U.S. Forest Service revised its firefighting policies as a result of the blaze. “The reforms after Storm King were collectively intended to prevent that from happening again, which was mass entrapment of an entire Hotshot crew,” said Lloyd Burton, professor of environmental law and policy at the University of Colorado. “There are so many striking parallels between this tragedy and what happened on Storm King in 1994, it’s almost haunting.” Those changes included policies that say no firefighters should be deployed unless they have a safe place to retreat. They must also be continuously informed of changing weather. “If you don’t have those things in place, it’s not advisable to deploy a team in the first place, because you can’t guarantee their safety,” Burton said. The Hotshot team from Prescott entered the smoky wilderness over the weekend with backpacks, chain saws and other heavy gear to remove brush and trees and deprive the flames of fuel. But the blaze grew from 200 acres to about 2,000 in a matter of hours as “the wind kicked up to 40 to 50 mph gusts and it blew east, south, west — every which way,” said Prescott City Councilman Len Scamardo. “What limited information we have was there was a gust of wind from the north that blew the fire back and trapped them,” Scamardo said. The crew’s only surviving member, Brendan McDonough, was on a hill top working as the lookout when the winds picked up, said Wade Ward, spokesman for the Prescott Fire Department. McDonough notified the other Hotshots that the weather was changing rapidly and that the fire had switched direction because of the wind. McDonough also told his fellow crew members that he was leaving the immediate area because he was in danger and asked them if they needed anything. “He did exactly what he was supposed to,” Ward said Tuesday of McDonough, who was in his third season with the unit. Retired smoke jumper Art Morrison, a spokesman for the Arizona State Forestry Division, said it’s essentially a judgment call as to whether a spot can work as a safe haven to escape to if the flames suddenly blow toward crews and they have to flee for their lives. “Whatever they used as a safety zone just didn’t work,” he said. Dick Mangan, a retired U.S. Forest Service safety official and consultant, said it is too early to say if the crew or those managing the fire made mistakes. “This just might have been a weather anomaly that nobody saw coming that happened too quickly to respond to,” Mangan said. He said the crew members might have taken too many risks because they were on familiar ground and were trying to protect a community they knew well. “When you’ve got especially structures and residences involved, and you’ve got local resources, there’s a fair amount of social and political pressure, some of it self-generated by the firefighters, who want to do a good job,” Mangan said. “They don’t want to see a community burn down. They want to get in there.” A team of fire officials drawn from across the country by Atlanta NIMO, or National Incident Management Organization, arrived in the area Tuesday to find out exactly what went wrong. They plan to make their way into the charred fire scene and issue a preliminary report in the coming days, said Mary Rasmussen, a spokeswoman for the Southwest Area Incident Management Team. With the investigation just beginning, it’s not clear what help water- or retardant-dropping air-
craft could have provided for the doomed crew. One contractor, Neptune Aviation Services, had three aerial tankers making drops on the fire earlier in the day. But at the time the firefighters died, the planes had been grounded because of treacherous conditions, said chief executive Ronald Hooper. “It wasn’t safe for them to be in the air at that time,” Hooper said. There were “severe winds, erratic winds and thunderstorms in the area.” Weather reports from around the time of the firefighter deaths show how volatile the wind became. At 4 p.m., the wind was blowing out of the southwest, but one hour later, it had switched to the exact opposite direction and dramatically increased in speed. It was gusting at 22 mph at 4 p.m. but was at 41 mph by 5 p.m. However, government dispatch logs show at least two other planes were flying over the fire at the time, one large tanker and one small one. There was also at least one firefighting helicopter in the air early Sunday afternoon.

Donald Charles Huegel, 74 SANBORNTON — Donald Charles Huegel, 74, left us peacefully on June 29, 2013. Donald was born in Teaneck, N.J., on July 21, 1938, son of Edward Huegel Sr. and Pauline (Brennan) Huegel. He lived in New York until 1983 when he moved to New Hampshire. Donald was a hard worker with a strong work ethic who was employed his entire life. He worked for more than 20 years at Hong Luck Restaurant in New York and in New Hampshire he was employed by Shaw’s, Laconia High School and Aubuchon Hardware in Laconia.

Most of all, Donald enjoyed spending time with his family at reunions, at the shore in New Jersey and the lakes in New Hampshire. He was a loyal fan at the theater performances and athletic events of his nephews in New Hampshire. Donald was truly an angel on earth. He was a gentle and loving family member and friend and he brought smiles and compliments to everyone he met. He saw the beauty in everyone and he didn’t hesitate to tell them so.
Donald is predeceased by his mother, his father, his stepfather, and a brother, Edward J. Huegel He is survived by two sisters, Michele Norton of Montvale, N.J., and Elaine de Mello of Sanbornton; a brother-in-law, a sister-in-law, and many cousins, nieces and nephews.

fun changes that. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A floating feeling dominates your consciousness today. The present seems everlasting when you’re fully in it, but one thought later, and it seems like something you can’t possibly hold on to. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Distance might make the heart grow fonder, but silence only hardens it. An opportunity to patch things up with a loved one who’s been long out of touch should be seized at once. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll root for the underdog. You see how sometimes there are too many factors beyond a person’s control acting against their achievement. Your assistance and cheerleading will help give someone a fair shot. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 3). To have compassion for others you have to have it for yourself -- and you will to a much greater degree. This frees up energy in you. In August, you’ll try new things and connect with different people. In September, territorial instincts kick in, and you’ll establish personal boundaries. December and March are financially stellar. Aries and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 49, 47, 21 and 8.
by Chad Carpenter
ARIES (March 21-April 19). When the past starts to feel closer than it actually is and memories seem to be holding you back, avoid the side view mirror and step on the gas. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Recent heartaches and emotional double-vision have been a shock to your system, and now you’re trying to ram your way through. Instead, slow down, take a deep breath, rest and regenerate. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Did you choose this life, or did it choose you? Either way, you see it as your responsibility and take as much control of it as you possibly can. You’ll make an adjustment tonight that will help you create what you want. CANCER (June 22-July 22). A mysterious person seen from afar or engaged only by chance isn’t at all mysterious once you get to know him or her. You might be that mysterious person to someone else, as well. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’re a matchmaker for more than love relationships. Today you naturally will see how people might connect and how they need one another. You’ll bridge groups of people, making it easier for them to know one another. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A distant friend or relative is in the picture again, and you might feel resentful that they haven’t been in the picture consistently all along. But everyone inhabits his or her own picture. Compassion brings things into proper focus. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Those who worked hard to get where they are sometimes think they are entitled to better treatment, but not you. You believe all people are equal regardless of their station in life, and you treat everyone the same. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A long day feels longer when it seems that all you do goes unrecognized or unappreciated. Don’t be afraid to speak up for yourself when the sun goes down and gently remind others of the hard work you put in. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It’s hard to say what you value more now: time alone or time with loved ones. Both feel in short supply, as too much of your life seems to be devoted to other responsibilities. But today’s

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, July 2, 2013— Page 27
––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Wednesday, July 3, the 184th day of 2013. There are 181 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 3, 1863, the three-day Civil War Battle of Gettysburg in Pennsylvania ended in a major victory for the North as Confederate troops failed to breach Union positions during an assault known as Pickett’s Charge. On this date: In 1608, the city of Quebec was founded by Samuel de Champlain. In 1775, Gen. George Washington took command of the Continental Army at Cambridge, Mass. In 1890, Idaho became the 43rd state of the Union. In 1898, the U.S. Navy defeated a Spanish fleet outside Santiago Bay in Cuba during the Spanish-American War. In 1913, during a 50th anniversary reunion at Gettysburg, Pa., Civil War veterans re-enacted Pickett’s Charge, which ended with embraces and handshakes between the former enemies. In 1938, President Franklin D. Roosevelt marked the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg by dedicating the Eternal Light Peace Memorial. In 1944, during World War II, Soviet forces recaptured Minsk. In 1950, the first carrier strikes of the Korean War took place as the USS Valley Forge and the HMS Triumph sent fighter planes against North Korean targets. In 1962, French President Charles de Gaulle signed an agreement recognizing Algeria as an independent state after 132 years of French rule. In 1971, singer Jim Morrison of The Doors died in Paris at age 27. In 1988, the USS Vincennes shot down an Iran Air jetliner over the Persian Gulf, killing all 290 people aboard. In 1993, Hall of Fame pitcher Don Drysdale died in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, at age 56. Comedian “Curly Joe” DeRita, the sixth member of the Three Stooges, died in Woodland Hills, Calif., at age 83. Ten years ago: The U.S. put a $25 million bounty on Saddam Hussein, and $15 million apiece for his two sons. (The $30 million reward for Odai and Qusai Hussein went to a tipster whose information led U.S. troops to their hideout, where the brothers were killed in a gunbattle.) Five years ago: The Pentagon announced it had extended the tour of 2,200 Marines in Afghanistan, after insisting for months the unit would come home on time. Venus and Serena Williams won in straight sets to set up their third all-sister Wimbledon final and seventh Grand Slam championship matchup. Larry Harmon, who turned Bozo the Clown into a show business staple, died in Los Angeles at age 83. One year ago: A federal judge in Amarillo, Texas, found Clayton F. Osbon, a JetBlue Airways pilot who’d left the cockpit during a flight and screamed about religion and terrorists, not guilty by reason of insanity of interfering with a flight crew. Andy Griffith, 86, who made homespun American Southern wisdom his trademark as the wise sheriff in “The Andy Griffith Show,” died at his North Carolina home.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, July 2, 2013— Page 29
Dear Annie: I’ve been friends with “Jane” and “Carol” since college. Unfortunately, since her mom died well over a decade ago, Jane has become a hermit. She is distant, and whenever we make plans, she makes an excuse at the very last minute to cancel on us. We’re frustrated. While I can sympathize with her terrible loss, I feel she needs to move on and start living again. She can’t hide in her room forever. Carol and I are not sure how to approach this. We want to be sensitive to Jane’s feelings but at the same time get her to realize that she has friends and family who love her and want to spend time with her. What should we do? -- Frustrated Friends Dear Friends: If Jane has been so severely depressed about her mother’s death for more than a decade, she needs professional help. She is stuck. Tell her you are worried about her, and suggest she look into counseling to help her get her life back on track. She also can find a Motherless Daughters support group through hopeedelman.com. Dear Annie: After 56 years of marriage, our father passed away and left my mother alone for the first time in her life. Four years after Dad died, Mom suffered a bout of meningitis. While she has recovered completely, she is convinced that she is bedridden. I moved back home to take care of her because no one else would. My younger sister lives in the house with us, but does her own thing. The problem is, four other siblings live in the same city, and three are retired. Yet no one helps look after Mom but me. Mom has a sharp tongue, but her memory is shot. Even when she is insulting, she doesn’t remember it. I drive nearly 100 miles a day to and from work. When I get home, I clean the kitchen and make sure Mom has a hot
meal while watching TV. I am D.O.T.: disappointed, overwhelmed and tired. My spirit is broken; I don’t spend time with friends; I don’t talk on the phone; I don’t do anything. I worry that I will die of exhaustion and Mom will be alone. My mother, of course, has no sympathy for my situation. I am not the executor of her will or a beneficiary. But I would like to enjoy a few years before my life is over. -- Tired and Miserable Dear Tired: You are kind, compassionate and devoted. But you don’t need to wear yourself out for your mother. That does neither of you any good. Of course, your siblings should step up, but they are not going to do it, so handle this as if you were an only child. Your mother could benefit from day care programs, and you need respite care. Contact the Eldercare Locator (eldercare.gov), AARP (aarp.org), the Family Caregiver Alliance (caregiver.org) and the Alzheimer’s Association (alz.org) for information and help. Dear Annie: “Trouble in Hubbard” is the executor of her mother’s estate. She is concerned that one grandson has borrowed a great deal of money, and she wants to deduct that amount from his inheritance after Grandma dies. As an executor of an estate (or trustee of a trust), “Trouble” has no choice but to divide and distribute Grandma’s will or trust the way it’s written upon her death. Since debts owed Grandma prior to her death are legitimate assets of the estate, this would require adjusting a beneficiary’s share of distributions. To do otherwise opens the executor or trustee to lawsuits from the other beneficiaries. If it contributes to family strife, “Trouble” should resign in favor of appointing a bank or licensed trust company as executor. -- Kailua, Hawaii
