As a member of what has widely been called ‘’The Greatest Generation’’ Giguere says he’s never been ready to claim that what he did that day was heroic. ‘’The real heroes are those guys who didn’t come back. And there were plenty of them that I knew,’’ said Giguere. ‘’We were young and didn’t know what we were getting in to. We were doing what we were told to do,’’ he says, adding that there were ‘’20 guys on the ship that I went in on that didn’t make it.’’ Giguere says that he ‘s not sure why he was assigned to the beach battalion but thinks it may have had something to do with his ULTIMATE BIKERS GLASSES marksmanship score.

After seeking a suitable site for the past five years, Happy Tails, a nonprofit corporation, has prepared a plan to build the park on part of a 25-acre rectangular tract in the South End, between the end of Spruce Street and Growtth Road, which is owned by the city. The city purchased the land in 1976 with a Land, Water, Conservation grant from the federal government, which restricts the property to recreational uses.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — An 84-yearold Florida widow who bought her Powerball ticket after another customer let her get ahead in line came forward Wednesday to claim the biggest undivided lottery jackpot in history: $590 million. Gloria C. MacKenzie, a retiree from Maine and a mother of four who lives in a modest, tin-roof house in Zephyrhills, where the lone winning ticket in the May 18 drawing was sold, took her prize in a lump sum of just over $370 million. After federal taxes, she is getting about $278 million, lottery officials said. She did not speak to a crowd of reporters outside lottery headquarters, leaving quickly in a silver Ford Focus with her son and family friends. She was accompanied at the lottery offices by two unidentified attorneys. MacKenzie bought the winning ticket at see JACKPOT page 9

WASHINGTON (AP) — With broad support from Republicans and Democrats, a House committee Wednesday approved legislation to tackle the growing problem of sexual assault in the armed forces by taking away the power of military commanders to overturn convictions in rape and assault cases. The bill passed by the House Armed Services Committee also requires that anyone found guilty of a sex-related crime receive

a punishment that includes, at a minimum, a dismissal from military service or a dishonorable discharge. “The word should go out clearly and strongly that if you commit a sexual assault in the military, you are out,” said Rep. Michael Turner, R-Ohio. Turner and Rep. Niki Tsongas, D-Mass., wrote many of the provisions in the House bill. By stripping commanders of their longstanding authority to reverse or change

court-martial convictions, lawmakers are aiming to shake up the military’s culture and give victims the confidence that if they report a crime their allegations won’t be discounted and they won’t face retaliation. Frustration has been building on Capitol Hill for weeks over the Defense Department’s failure to staunch sexual assaults in the ranks. The Pentagon estimated in a recent see MILITARY page 4

TSA drops plan to allow small knives on commercial airliners

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Transportation Security Administration is abandoning a plan to allow passengers to carry small knives, souvenir bats, golf clubs and other sports equipment onto planes in the face of fierce congressional and industry opposition, the head of the agency said Wednesday. By scuttling the plan to drop the knives and sports equipment from TSA’s list of prohibited items, the agency can focus

its attention on other priorities, including expanding its Pre-Check program to identify ahead of time travelers who don’t pose a security risk, TSA Administrator John Pistole told The Associated Press. Pistole had unveiled the proposal to loosen the rules for carry-ons in March, saying the knives and other items can’t enable terrorists to cause a plane to crash. He said intercepting them takes time that would be better used searching for explo-

sives and other more serious threats. TSA screeners confiscate over 2,000 of the small folding knives a day from passengers. Skeptical lawmakers, airlines, labor unions and some law enforcement groups complained that the knives and other items in the hands of the wrong passengers could be used to injure or even kill passengers and crew.

Bob Luther will make a second run for mayor; Felch challenges again in Ward 6 BY MICHAEL KITCH LACONIA — When the filing period for city offices opened yesterday, former City Councilor Bob Luther, who represented Ward 2 for seven consecutive terms between 1996 and 2008, was first through the door to file for his second bid at the mayor’s office. After resigning his seat on the council when he moved from Ward 2, Luther ran for mayor in 2009 against Mike Seymour, who won easily by carrying all six wards and polling 1,421 votes to Luther’s 874. Last month Seymour announced he would not seek re-election to a third term. In 2010, Luther, a Republican, was elected to the first of two terms in the New Hampshire House of Representatives. Tony Felch of Lakeport will again challenge Armand Bolduc, who has served on the City Council for three decades and said he intends to continue, in Ward 6. In 2011, Felch ran a write-in campaign to earn a place on the ballot but lost the race to Bolduc, 221 to 125. Felch, a native of the city and member of the class of 1977 at Laconia High School, has managed the Mountain View Apartments on Mile Hill Road for the past 20 years. He is the president of the Leavitt Park Association and the New Hampshire Billiards League. Felch said that he enjoys a congenial relationship and has no profound differences with Bolduc, but believes “it is time for a change and new ideas.

We shouldn’t be doing everything the way it’s always been done because it’s always been done that way,” he said. A strong supporter of a “pay-as-youthrow” trash collection program, he said that would vote to introduce it if the mandatory recycling recycling fails to reduce the amount of trash collected at the curbside and cost of disposing of solid waste its supporters project. While Felch believes the city could benefit from acquiring the former Laconia State School property, he said that the city must be assured that the price of purchasing the site and cost of addressing the environmental issues are reasonable. Brenda Baer, who has represented Ward 4 on the council for the past eight years, filed for re-election to a fifth term. Perhaps the most outspoken and fiscally conservative councilor, Baer, who initially opposed the property tax cap, has sought to keep a tight grip on spending while working hard to secure funding for the improvement of Wyatt Park, which is currently underway. She was in the forefront of the opposition to a “payas-you-throw” program. Armand Maheux, who has served on the Police Commission since 1995, filed for re-election to a seventh consecutive term. Maheux managed a department store, shoe store and jewelry store before joining the Police Department as a part-time officer in 1965. In 1973, he became a full-time officer. After five years on the force, he left to take a position with Aavid Thermalloy.

MILITARY from page 2 report that as many as 26,000 military members may have been sexually assaulted last year, up from an estimated 19,000 assaults in 2011, based on an anonymous survey of military personnel. While the number of sexual assaults that members of the military actually reported rose 6 percent to 3,374 in 2012, thousands of victims were still unwilling to come forward despite new oversight and assistance programs aimed at curbing the crimes, the report said. “The military has obviously been unable to solve this problem independently,” Tsongas said. The legislation is part of a sweeping defense policy bill that the Republicanled Armed Services Committee pulled together during a daylong session. The $638 billion measure for the fiscal year beginning Oct. 1 included $86 billion for the war in Afghanistan as well as contentious provisions on the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and nuclear weapons. The full House is expected to vote on the bill next week. Despite the congressional clamor to cut the deficit, the committee bill rejects several Pentagon attempts to save money. It spares a version of the Global Hawk unmanned aircraft, rebuffs attempts to increase health care fees for retirees and their dependents, and opposes another round of domestic base closures. In fact, the panel didn’t just say no to more base closings, it went as far as including a provision barring the Pentagon from even planning for another

round. That drew ridicule from Smith, who offered an amendment essentially eliminating the prohibition on the Pentagon thinking ahead. Smith said it made no sense to tie the Pentagon’s hands as it faces smaller budgets. “I don’t think this committee has the luxury of being so darn parochial anymore, to say every single time any one of the (military) services comes into our state and says, ‘Look, we’ve got to rearrange,’ that we’re going to fight toothand-nail to stop them,” Smith said. But Smith’s amendment was soundly rejected, 44-18. Several Republicans argued that they didn’t want the Pentagon wasting time planning for an effort that Congress would never accept. The committee approved an amendment to provide $140 million as a down payment to install ground-based interceptors at a new missile defense site on the East Coast to expand the country’s defenses from a potential ballistic missile attack by Iran. The measure would require the site at a yet-to-be-determined location to be ready by 2018. Overall, the bill fails to acknowledge the automatic, across-the-board spending cuts that Washington has grudgingly accepted. The cuts of $41 billion hit the Pentagon on March 1 and forced the military to furlough workers and scale back training. The Pentagon faces deeper reductions in projected spending of close to $1 trillion over a decade, but the bill see next page

Gilford Selectboard chairman labels conditions at county jail ‘deplorable’ BY GAIL OBER

LACONIA — For the past few years the Belknap County commissioners have taken some summer evenings to visit individual municipal governing boards, visits referred to collectively as “county conversations”. This year, most boards are touring the county facilities and Tuesday it was the Gilford selectmen’s turn. “They (the county) have improved the court house and nursing home wisely,” said Board Chair Kevin Hayes, noting he was exceptionally impressed with the Belknap County Nursing Home. “It was clean, bright, and offers a lot to their residents,” Hayes said. “The place was immaculate.” As part of a $2.3 million federal stimulus grant spread over three years, Belknap County was able to upgrade nearly all of its facilities with the exception of the Belknap County House of Corrections. Some of those upgrades included the renovation of the county administrative wing, a historically-sensitive new roof on the county courthouse as well as an

overhaul of the HVAC system. Security was added to the Belknap County Attorney’s Offices and the conference room, used by multiple government and community agencies was redone. Hayes said he liked the new administrative wing, calling it “clean, practical and accessible.” “Again, they have made good use of old space,” he said. Hayes was far more critical when it came to the jail. “It’s deplorable,” he said, saying he knows that the people who are incarcerated have either been found guilty of crimes or are accused of crimes and society doesn’t want them house in the “Taj Mahal” but that something needs to be done. He said he goes to the jail once weekly for some Christian outreach counseling but said he had never gone past the visiting room or seen “where those guys and girls come from.” Hayes was especially dismayed at the cramped and hot women’s quarters on the second floor where up to 12 women can be housed in a small room with one bathroom.

In his opinion, the purpose of incarceration is primarily for rehabilitation and though the county has put many good work and education programs into place, he said the space limitations clearly effect the ability of those programs to reach the people who need them. “Recidivism is far too high,” he said. “Education is a lot cheaper than incarceration.” After his tour on Tuesday, Hayes said he would support a reasonable proposal for investing into an upgraded county corrections program that would include a new jail. Hayes was accompanied by Selectman John O’Brien and Town Administrator Scott Dunn. The tour of the facilities was given by Commissioners John Thomas and Steve Nedeau who were accompanied by County Administrator Deb Shackett. The Commissioner said they were very happy that the individual communities had taken the time to go on the facilities tours. To date, Gilford selectmen, the Laconia City Council, the Barnstead selectmen and the Tilton selectmen have gone on the tour.

from preceding page did not reflect that reality for next fiscal year. The Pentagon likely will have to cut $54 billion to meet the numbers dictated by the so-called sequester. The committee’s action on sexual assaults came one day after a high-profile Senate hearing during which senators grilled military leaders about the scourge in their ranks. The leaders conceded that they have been less than diligent in dealing with the problem, but pushed back against far-reaching legislation to give

the authority to level charges to a military prosecutor rather than the victim’s commander. Military leaders are more receptive to the House provisions, would strip commanders of the discretion to reverse a court-martial ruling, except in cases involving minor offenses. Commanders also would be barred from reducing a guilty finding by a court-martial to guilty of a lesser offense. The measure also would require that anyone found guilty of rape, sexual assault, forcible sodomy or an

attempt to commit any of those offenses receive a punishment that includes a dismissal from military service or a dishonorable discharge. The legislation eliminates the five-year statute of limitations on trial by court-martial for sexual assault and sexual assault of a child. It also establishes the authority for military legal counsel to provide legal assistance to victims of sex-related offenses and requires enhanced training for all military and civilian attorneys involved in sex-related cases.

IRS should outlaw all ‘social welfare’ political fronts — left & right If you’re covered in political stink, it might be prudent to avoid yelling “dirty politics” at others. Lately, a mess of right-wing tea party groups have been wailing nonstop that they have been targeted, harassed and denied their civic rights by partisan, out-ofcontrol, Obamanistic IRS thugs (no adjective too extreme when assailing Obama or the IRS). The groups certainly are right that it’s abhorrent for a powerful agency to run a repressive witch hunt against any group of citizens just because of their political views. After all, liberals have frequently felt the lash of such official repression by assorted McCarthyite-Nixonite-Cheneyite forces over the years, and it must be condemned, no matter who the victims. In this case, however, the rightwing groups were not targeted by government snoops and political operatives, but tagged by their own applications to be designated by the IRS as 501(c)(4) “social welfare” groups. This privileged status would allow them to take unlimited bags of corporate cash without ever revealing to voters the names of the corporations putting up the money. The caveat is that 501(c)(4)s are supposed to do actual social welfare work and cannot be attached to any candidate or party, nor can politics be their primary purpose. Forget what the rule says, though. Such notorious political players as Karl Rove and the Koch brothers have cynically set up their own pretend-welfare groups, openly using them as fronts to run secret-money election campaigns. Suddenly, hundreds of wannabe outfits were demanding that they be given the special hide-themoney designation, too, brazenly lying about their overt political purpose. Some even asserted that they were engaged in no political activity, when their own websites bragged that they were. It was these groups’ stupidity and audacity that prompted the IRS inquiries, and their current hissy fit about the agency is really just a PR effort to let them continue their “social welfare” fraud. I think of a “social welfare charity” as being an altruistic enter-

prise, like The Little Sisters of the Poor — not the avaricious Little Koch Brothers of the Plutocracy. Yet the brothers have created their very own 501(c)(4) charity, which they used last year as a political front group for funneling $39 million into campaigns against Democrats. Interesting, since, the law bans these taxexempt entities from spending more than 49 percent of their funding on political efforts to promote their “issues.” Yet, there they are — hoards of political (c)(4)s, mostly right-wing, operating primarily as political pipelines for secretly gushing corporate money into raw, partisan campaigns. Their hocus-pocus lawyers and congressional consiglieres have badgered the IRS into handing them the (c)(4) getout-of-jail-free card, then defied the agency to stop them as they dump millions of corrupt dollars into our elections. For example, American Action Network, a “charity” created by Wall Street lobbyists, has spent two-thirds of its revenue on elections, including putting up $745,000 from secret donors to elect Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin. How ironic, then, that Johnson is now one of the tea party mad dogs howling at IRS officials. It’s scandalous, Johnson shrieks, that some tea party groups have not been given (c)(4) status, because IRS agents have had the temerity to question whether the groups actually are charitable enterprises — or just rank political outfits fraudulently posing as charities. While tea party groups should not be singled out for IRS scrutiny, neither should they be allowed to cheat in elections by shamefully masquerading as Little Sisters of the Poor. That’s the real IRS scandal. (Jim Hightower has been called American’s most popular populist. The radio commentator and former Texas Commissioner of Agriculture is author of seven books, including “There’s Nothing In the Middle of Road but Yellow Stripes and Dead Armadillos” and his new work, “Swim Against the Current: Even Dead Fish Can Go With The Flow”.)

4th graders could teach us about politeness in addition to math To the editor, Relative to a letter in Wednesday’s issue of the Sun, it spurred me to call my own fourth grade grandson and ask him if it made sense to appropriate money unnecessarily when an excess of already appropriated money was available to handle the contin-

gency. He replied that it probably wasn’t a good idea and, furthermore, that it was unsophisticated and possibly rude to chortle over someone else’s opinion about which you disagree. Rep. Dick Burchell Belknap 5 Gilmanton

LETTERS Liberal aims are often cloaked in pleasant-sounding schemes To the editor, While finishing up my studies on Constitutional History of the U.S. at a University in Cedar City, Utah I had the opportunity and privilege to stay with the university provost and his family. This afforded me a rare opportunity to get his attention and spend hours in conversations over the dilemma we are facing in this country. One evening the topic centered upon constitutional usurpation and tyranny. During one of those discussions Dr. Groft shared with me an occurrence that had happened a few years before. There had been a farmer who accidentally killed a gopher by running over it with his tractor. It cost him thousands of dollars in fines. It seemed that this non-native species was somehow protected and the federal bureaucracy was going to use him as an example. We discussed this for some time, until the Dr. stated “Lets go for a ride”. The ride was a short one. Taking only a few minutes. He stopped the car near a large brick building. He asked “Do you have any idea what this building is?” Of course my response was “ No”. “It’s a federal building connected to the Department of Interior” was his response. He shared with me how this all came about. Late one night the city was awakened to the sound of tractor-trailer trucks coming through the city. Then the sounds of heavy equipment working. Those who saw the trucks and equipment stated that there was no markings on any vehicle. The federal plot thickens as I was informed that up until that time a colony of gophers had lived there. This was during the Clinton era when socialism and tyranny took a few giant steps forward. Sound familiar? So what is happening in Cedar City, Utah now? More of the same. Today property owners’ land is being confiscated by the federal government for the use of the same gopher they plowed under during the Clinton years. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is blocking construction or development in anyway that might harass the poor rodent. You cannot be any more intimidating than bulldozing. Pacific Legal Foundation attorney Jonathan Wood states that Cedar City

is under siege. “The town is inundated with prairie dogs that are leaving parks, gardens, vacant lots, and even the local cemetery pockmarked with burrows and tunnels. Development projects are blocked by federal prairie dog protections. And public health is imperiled because prairie dogs-which are rodents, after all and can be carriers of diseases”. The federal government uses the Commerce Clause (Article 1, Section 8) to block owners and state from using their property. Somewhere in time the courts found they could use the Commerce Clause and General Welfare Clause and change its meaning to push their socialist agenda. We may soon see the little rodents at the local super market with their EBT card. Surely if wind farms can literally hack to pieces thousands of federally protected birds with impunity then why is harassing a gopher a federal crime? Where is the justice for eagles and hawks who claimed territory that wind farms destroy? There may be more to it than what appears on the surface. Agenda 21 is a communist plot created by the United Nations. And favored by likethinking presidents who use executive orders to stealthily ease us into a world government plot that controls all resources, land, people and even the air we breath. Bill Clinton was infamous for this tactic. Is communism creeping into your town by stealth? Code words have been used by sneaky liberals for decades. Do these words sound familiar? Smart Growth, Sustainable Development, Wildlands Project, Regional Visioning Projects, Going Green, Regional Planning, Historic Planning, Growth Management, Conservation Easement, Facilitators, Green Building Codes, Sustainable Farming, Consensus. These words are constantly in flux as Americans catch on to the communist agenda. D.I.C.E.D. the Draft International Covenant on Environment and Development is the United Nations covenant for global government. The first version was submitted to the U.N. in 1995 during its 50th anniversary. A fourth version was submitted on September 22,2010. see next page

Sen. Andrew Hosmer

N.H. can’t wait; expanding Medicaid helps taxpayers, businesses & our hospitals Last week, the New Hampshire Senate Finance Committee rejected expanding Medicaid in New Hampshire and instead opted to delay and study. This politically motivated decision is fiscally short-sighted and will hurt our health care system and our entire economy. The Medicaid program is a partnership between the federal government and the states. It primarily covers poor children, senior citizens, expecting mothers, and people with disabilities. Today, New Hampshire covers about 132,000 people, and the costs are split 50-50 between the state and the feds. However, under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), states now have the option to extend Medicaid to working adults with annual incomes up to $15,856. And instead of splitting the costs evenly for this new group, the federal government will pay 100 percent from 2014-2016, and then after 2020 it will pay 90 percent. According to non-partisan studies from the Lewin Group and New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute, the economic impact of this extended coverage is overwhelmingly positive. It’s estimated that over the next seven years, New Hampshire will receive $2.5 billion in federal funds, New Hampshire’s hospitals will save $400 million, and the economic spinoff will create upwards of 5,000 jobs and $2.8 billion in gross state product. And how much will this cost New Hampshire? Zero, once managed care in Medicaid is implemented in the coming year. So where’s the opposition coming from? Despite the huge benefits, some have argued that there is still a risk for New Hampshire, since the federal government might somehow renege on its promise. The history of Medicaid is contrary to this fear, as the federal government has never failed to fully fund Medicaid in more than 45 years. Also, if they ever do, New Hampshire can pull out at any time. Others say that it makes financial sense to stop and study for a year. This is unnecessary as expansion has been studied by non-partisan groups and their conclusions are quite similar. In fact, delaying a year costs us $340 million, drives up costs for businesses, and leaves tens of thousands of people in New Hampshire without coverage. Putting politics aside and even

beyond the clear economic and fiscal benefits, extending Medicaid coverage is important for our entire health care system. Our current system, with skyrocketing insurance costs, increasing demands for charity care, declining Medicaid reimbursement rates and an inadequate understanding of mental health issues, is broken and in need of immediate, substantive reform. Expanding Medicaid, regardless of how one feels about the ACA, is an opportunity to address and begin reforming our health care system. Even fiscally conservative governors from across the country, including Chris Christie (R-NJ), Jan Brewer (R-AR), John Kasich (R–OH) and Rick Scott (R-FL), support Medicaid expansion, because it just makes so much sense for their states, and they are willing to look past the shortterm politics. If New Hampshire doesn’t take advantage of expansion, our hard earned tax dollars will go to subsidizing health care in these other states. How ironic that N.H.’s healthcare system is struggling, yet Granite Staters will be paying for other states’ health care. If this happens, New Hampshire will be 50th out of 50 states in the return of federal tax dollars to the state — the biggest “donor state” in the whole country. The human cost is also staggering. Medicaid expansion would cover 58,000 hard-working New Hampshire tax-payers (including 1500 veterans and 800 of their spouses). These people are our neighbors, people we see at church, ball games and the grocery store — people who work multiple jobs trying to keep a roof over their head and food on the table. When I campaigned for the State Senate I remember well how many people told me they were tired of hyper-partisan politics. I promised that I would remember those conversations and put them into action when elected. This doesn’t have to be a partisan issue: we have a genuine opportunity to work together as pragmatic problem solvers. It’s rare that a real, genuine solution is open to us. Let’s grab it. Let’s put Granite Staters first and do what’s best for our healthcare providers, our business community, our economy and the hard working taxpayers of New Hampshire. (Democrat Andrew Hosmer of Laconia represents District 7 in the N.H. Senate)

Chat at Hector’s in 2008 sheds light on County Commission tactics To the editor, I wrote this letter some time ago but held onto it because of the content. I know people will see this as a personal attack on two elected representatives and I don’t like making these accusations without having personally witnessing the offense. The facts stated are true and considering the level of animosity between the County Commissioners and the County Convention I feel that the good citizens of the county might need to hear this so they can better decide for themselves which direction the county should be taken. As I follow the details of the commission and convention in the paper I seem to be getting more and more upset with the way the reporting is biased against the convention. If the reporters had witnessed the actions of the commission members maybe they would sound so one sided. What first riled me up to write this letter is what I read in the article from May 2 titled “Sanbornton Rep Praises Commissioners, County Staff, Says He’s Ashamed of Delegation”. This got me quite upset. Then I noticed the letters from the local leaders of the local Democrat Party supporting the county commission I decided to share some personal information I have. What bothered me is when the article that says “particularly troubling for Fields are accusations of dishonesty on the part of the commissioners which have been raised by delegation members.” A direct quote from Rep Fields is “I know John and Steve and know you’re honest.” Dennis also says “’I resent it when people imply you’re not being honest.” Dennis please pay attention because this isn’t an implication, these are merely the facts. In early 2008, while a Laconia City Councilor, I went to Hector’s with two representatives after attending a particularly contentious County Convention meeting concerning the county budget. I was there to continue explaining the negative impact that the proposed budget would have on Laconia’s taxpayers. These reps, who are now commissioners, detailed for me some of the illegal activities that they used to do with the exclamation that “what the public doesn’t know doesn’t hurt them” and “I don’t care if it wasn’t right or legal, I got things done.” Many of the things they told me were about how they would “get even” with people they didn’t like. At the time I sort of dismissed this as merely bragging by a couple of convention members but watching the actions of the County Commission over the past

several years make me wonder if they weren’t telling the truth. I do believe that it is the responsibility of the County Commission to pay all legal bills from lawyers representing any county official in official court proceedings. The fact that this commission filed suit against the Registrar of Deeds because she wouldn’t do what they wanted, which was in violation of the state laws regarding her duties is one thing. The fact that they still refuse to pay the legal bills from defending herself against their lawsuit sounds just like one of the stories relayed to me at Hector’s. Then I read a letter from the Democrat leadership saying “The quagmire that Belknap County Convention Chair Colette Worsman has created for this county is unnecessary and counterproductive.” I say thank you to Collette for trying to keep our elected representatives HONEST. They go on to chastise Rep. Worsman over the supplemental appropriation for the nursing home because it will generate $200,000 in additional revenue. I wonder how they know this when the paper reported that one of the commissioners that I am writing about refused to provide the information requested in advance of the public meeting. This again sounds like a tactic that this commissioner relayed to me that he took against someone else because he “didn’t want to give him time to come up with questions to ask that would stop the project.” Then I read in the paper that the county administration is going to hurt the public by not taking any new patients into the nursing home until they get more money. County Administrator Debra Shackett told the commissioners that “Our only control is through admissions”, which sounds like a strategy that Commissioner John Thomas told me that night. Get the public on your side, no matter what it takes. I really wonder why the Democrat representatives seem to like and support the commissioners so much? The letter from the local Democrat leadership ends with the statement “This vitriol must stop”. I agree, but the difference is that I want the commissioners to perform their job by honoring their oath of office. I want them to open the doors to become more transparent, keep their actions honest and legal and to work with the County Convention and its leadership instead of fighting every step of the way. Actions speak louder than words and see next page

from preceding page There are 79 articles and 242 pages. U.N. agenda 21 transform them into Global Law. Article 51 states we must pay 0.7 percent of GDP for official development assistance. Article 69 deals with settlements of disputes by Permanent Court of Arbitration, the International Court of Justice. Agenda 21 is not about safeguarding the environment, it is about control. George Soros, Ford Foundation, World Bank, Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Bill

and Charles Stewart Mott Foundation are funding and pushing the implementation of this global authoritarianism. Federal agencies are working to do the same. When a liberal speaks, listen closely. Then compare his rhetoric with other tyrants like, Hitler, Mao, Lenin, and Stalin. They cloak their aims with pleasant sounding schemes. They are designed to ensnare the masses. Creating a yoke of bondage. Gene F. Danforth

LETTERS Alton spends taxpayer dollars for transparency, will Belmont? To the editor, Your June 4 edition carried significant coverage of the Belmont Selectmen’s meeting wherein the board concluded that they would be willing to revisit their June 17 decision to withdraw support of Lakes Region Public Access (LRPA) television. A principle reason expounded by the Board for acting to drop out of LRPA was that they were unable to find a volunteer to film their meetings for later play-back on cable Channel 26. I have information that may better able the Belmont Selectmen (and taxpayers) to decide whether they want to stay on television, or not. But first full-disclosure: I am the Town of Alton’s representative to the LRPA Board of Directors, which admittedly instills in me a bias, but also fuller knowledge of what is working and what is not. Belmont apparently wants out since they are not getting their meetings and shows, with the exception of the Central Baptist Church services, on Channels 25 and 26. The church has a videographer so their recordings go to LRPA for broadcasting on Channel 25 without any hitches. The Town, however, without an unpaid videographer finds themselves dark on Channel 26.

Alton’s experience might set an example for other LRPA municipalities. Since 1999 Alton’s Selectmen meetings have been on Channel 26 and a year or so later the School Board meetings went on the air also. For years the videos were taken by volunteers, but in the mid-2000’s the volunteers started to burn out. When the Budget Committee meetings stopped appearing on Channel 26 due to no one showing up to do the videotaping for free, a petition warrant article appeared at Town Meeting to pay videographers from taxpayer funds. The vote in favor wasn’t even close. Consequently the Town Budget every year provides funds to pay videographers to film the Selectmen, the Budget Committee, and significant meetings of the Planning Board and other public bodies. To date I am unaware of any taxpayer complaints that the $35 per shoot is not well spent. Alton voters rarely attend the meetings in person, but there is little doubt that they stay tuned in to what their elected officials are up to. Alton taxpayers are willing to anteup to have transparency in local government. Now the region will see how important that is to Belmont voters. Bob Longabaugh Alton Bay

The worst part of a government will be its tax collecting agents To the editor, After the last few letters I’ve written to the editor, I look back and wonder if readers might think I’m getting a bit over excited. Well no, I don’t think so but still I might explain to readers that first of all I don’t trust politicians or the government. I don’t trust Republicans or Democrats, or libertarians or — you name them. Sure it’s a matter of degrees over which I think are better or worse but overall you can only trust them so long as they are in your sight but watch out anyway, their tricky. The worst part about governments are their taxing agents. In our case it’s the IRS and I don’t know anyone of any party, anywhere who likes the IRS. Mostly we fear them because of their near God-like powers to make our lives a misery, to destroy us, take away our liberty, homes, money just anything. Sure they are a necessity, all governments need to be funded, and our IRS is supposed to be independent of political influence and pressure but now we see how easily it was for that to change. Whether readers like or dislike the Tea Party, conservatives, or groups that support Israel, it should send a cold shiver

up your back to know it might be your turn next if you find yourself disagreeing with current or future administrations. Local democrats have for many years been advocating for an income tax here in New Hampshire. The object lesson coming out of DC might and should give citizens of the Granite State second thoughts on that concept. The idea that it can’t happen here is just silly. I do hope that some good will come from this abuse of power and that people all across the country can finally find some common ground and demand that those in Washington we elected to do our bidding are forced by a groundswell of righteous anger and outrage to finally truly reform our national tax system. A good start would be a federal flat income tax. No exceptions, no deductions just a simple, straight, low percentage tax. That way every citizen has a stake in the game and no one can be singled out, persecuted or harassed by politicians or political parties. Just saying. Something must be done and this is the time. Steve Earle Hill

from preceding page right now your actions are speaking the same words you once told me. I would fully support an investigation by the state Attorney General into the dealings

of the Belknap County Convention. My opinion is that criminal charges would result from such an investigation. Greg Knytych New Hampton

Laconia brother & sister have small legal dispute settled by Judge Judy By Gail OBer

LACONIA — A local woman who claimed her brother damaged a door to her apartment building while he was babysitting for her children has had her day in court — on Judge Judy. Kendra Peters of 43 Messer St. Apt. 2 said she and her brother Leon Bushy-Peters flew to Los Angeles over Halloween in 2012 to have the famous cantankerous television judge resolve their small claims issue. “Oh I love Judge Judy,” Peters said yesterday when contacted by telephone. “She chewed me up and spit me out.” She said the show paid for her, her son and her former downstairs neighbor and friend Bob Luther to stay in the Macy’s Plaza Hotel, which she described a “nice, nice.” She said her brother and his wife stayed elsewhere but their accommodations weren’t as nice as hers. “Like a Super 8” she said. Peters said, and paperwork filed with the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division confirmed the problem began when she asked her brother Leon Bushy-Peters to stay in her apartment and watch her children while she was in Maine last summer. “I entrusted him to stay here and watch my kids and he locked himself out,” she said. “He forgot where I told him I put the second key.” She said being on the show was fun but very scary. A very outgoing woman in her mid-30s, she said the show’s producer was initially excited when she got there because she was so animated. “Then they told me I had too many sparkles (glitter),” she said, saying that when she walked out and saw all

the lights her knees “were quaking.” Peters said Judge Judy looked at her and said “you may be pretty but I have brains and that’s why I am up here,” Peters said. She said at one point, Judge Judy looked at her and said , “Oh my God can you hurry it up.” She said when Judge Judy asked her brother what happened he told her, “Yeah, I did it.” Peters said she thought Judge Judy was mad at her because Leon had already accepted responsibility for the door. She said she got $750 plus the cost of the door plus an all expense paid trip for the five of them to Los Angeles. Her brother, Peters said, got $500 for his troubles. “We’d never been to Los Angeles. We had a weekend on her,” Peters said. A letter from the landlord indicated the door cost $496.18 to replace and install and that it was her responsibility to pay for. Peters said yesterday that she has to move because the rent is too expensive and that her landlord had told her she would deduct it from her security deposit. She hasn’t moved yet but said she still needed money to reimburse the landlord. “I love my brother,” Peters said. “I just need my money. I’m a single mom with three kids.” Peters said she thinks the show already aired but staff at the courthouse said they thought the episode may be running again Friday. Notice of the disposal of the case was sent to the Laconia court by the Judge Judy show. “Judge Judy” is a television court where small claims are arbitrated, reads the notice of dismal.

D-DAY from page one enlisted. But one of my buddies and I kept score for each other on the firing range and inflated our scores a little so that we could qualify for an extra $5 a month in pay,’’ says Giguere. He also recalls having won a lot of the ‘’liberation money’’, French francs which were distributed to those going ashore in the invasion in poker games with his fellow servicemen leading up to the invasion. ‘’We lived in tents and spent a lot of time on the rifle range and would go on hikes all the time,’’ says Giguere, who recalls that when there was a chance to get off base and go dances he was pretty popular with the English girls for his jitterbug skills. It was cold and dark and the seas were running high when the LCI-85, carrying about 185 soldiers and with a crew of 20, headed out from Southampton, England as part of the third wave of the invasion, headed for the Easy Red section of Omaha Beach. When it reached the beach it grounded too far out for the ramps to be put down and was moving to another section of the beach when, as reported by the LCI-85 captain ‘’as the ship grounded a teller mine exploded under the bow splitting the void tank. The port ramp went down and the troops began going ashore. Shells

and machine gun fire began to hit us. About 50 troops got down the port ramp before a shell hit it and blew it off the sponsons and over the side. As the starboard ramp had not gone down and the wounded men were jamming the deck, we backed off the beach again.’’ Giguere recalls that there was carnage on the deck and tended to a fellow serviceman, who had a badly wounded arm, before going over the side of the ship to reach shore. ‘’I threw away my backpack (and all of the liberation money) and jumped into the water with just my rifle. The water was up to my chest,’’ he recalls. After wading ashore he took shelter behind a German hedgehog obstacle and suffered a shoulder wound. as a bullet grazed him. He tended to his wound and then made it further up the beach where, unable to find other members of his unit, he hooked up with a group of soldiers that were headed up a ravine towards a German pillbox. When the group neared the side of the pillbox, Giguere, who had a good throwing arm, tossed seven grenades at it, the last being a smoke grenade. ‘’Then I got out of there because the smoke grenade was used so that the destroyers just off the beach would have something to shoot at’’ said Giguere. see next page

If it rains on Saturday morning, LHS graduation will be moved inside Middle School & seating will be by invitation only By Gail OBer


LACONIA — With what is now called tropical storm Andrea bearing down on the Atlantic Coast, administrators at the Laconia School District told the School Board there is a contingency plan for Saturday morning’s scheduled graduation. As of 4 p.m. yesterday, the Laconia High School graduation will be held at 10 a.m. on the grass at Opechee Park. Administrators said they are prepared to move the graduation inside the Laconia Middle School should it rain and said they will notify guests and School Board members via Alert Now — school alert system.

Business Administrator Ed Emond said should the graduation be moved inside only those with invitations will be admitted in the smaller space. He said the school district is still working on parking and possible shuttles from the High School and Pleasant Street Elementary School. The venue, that has traditionally been held on the football field at the high school, was relocated for this year while the new Bank of New Hampshire Stadium is under construction. Former School Board Chair and current Vice President of Hospital Clinical Services at LRGHealthcare Marge Kerns is the commencement speaker.

from preceding page After the pillbox was overrun and the bluff was taken, Giguere moved back down to the beach to try and locate his unit. He was talking with an officer when a German shell exploded, killing the officer, knocking Giguere out and leaving him with shrapnel wounds. When he woke up four days later on June 10, his 18th birthday, he was in the 40th Army Hospital in Southampton, England. Sent back to the United States aboard the Queen Mary in July, Giguere says that English Prime Minister Winston Churchill was also on the same ship, headed for a conference in Canada with American President Franklin Roosevelt. ‘’I had a 30-day leave but when I got back to Laconia I got an emergency call back and went to Oceanside, California’’ says Giguere, who was sent to Pacific Theatre where he took part in the invasion of the Philippines. At one point he was behind enemy lines for 14 days, delivering supplies to Navajo code talkers in the mountains. He then took part in the invasion of Okinawa in April of 1945 where he received his third Purple Heart. One of the first ashore, Giguere was a few days later sent out to round up some of his fellow servicemen after Japanese snipers started to infiltrate the

area they were in. ‘’There was a cemetery near a village there and some of the guys would go up there and smash funeral urns because they thought there would be gold teeth in them. Just as I got there I got shot in the foot by a sniper,’’ Giguere recalls. He was slated to be in the invasion of Japan but was spared that experience by the Japanese surrender after two atomic bombs had been dropped on that island nation. ‘’I guess you could say the A-bomb saved my life. I’m one of the lucky ones who survived those invasions,’’ says Giguere. After the war, Giguere came back to Laconia where he married Rachel Simoneau. He worked at Scott and Williams in Lakeport until they closed and he and his wife raised five children. He is now married to his second wife, Claire Nedeau,. In addition to his two Purple Hearts, Giguere was also awarded the the Silver Star and the highest military honor the French government can award to an American, the French Legion of Honor. His story was among those told in a children’s book “A Day That Changed America: D-Day” which was published in 2004.

JACKPOT from page 2 a Publix supermarket in the town of about 13,300, which is 30 miles northeast of Tampa. It is best known for the bottled spring water that bears its name — and now, for one of the biggest lottery winners of all time. The $590 million was the secondlargest lottery jackpot in history, behind a $656 million Mega Millions prize in March 2012, but that sum was split, with three winning tickets. In a statement read by lottery officials, MacKenzie said she purchased the ticket after another buyer “was kind enough to let me go ahead in line.” MacKenzie let the lottery computers generate the numbers at random. She said she also bought four other tickets for the drawing. “We are grateful with this blessing of winning the Florida Lottery Powerball jackpot,” the statement said. “We hope that everyone would give us the opportunity to maintain our privacy for our family’s benefit.”

The winner had 60 days to claim the prize. Lottery spokesman David Bishop said MacKenzie, her lawyers and her financial adviser spent about two hours going through the necessary paperwork. “They had clearly been preparing for this. They took all this time to get everything in order,” Bishop said. Minutes after the announcement, a dozen reporters in Zephyrhills were camped outside MacKenzie’s gray duplex, which backs up to a dirt alley and is across from a cow pasture. Neighbors were surprised by her good fortune. “She didn’t say anything about it. She’s so quiet and secluded. She’s usually in the house,” said James Hill. “I’m very happy for her. It couldn’t have happened to a nicer person. She was always pleasant and smiling.” Another neighbor, Don Cecil, joked, “I hope she gets a better place to live.” MacKenzie’s neighbors offered few see next page

Her house, situated among mostly mobile homes and pre-fabricated houses, has a chain-link fence with a sheet-metal roof and an old TV antenna. MacKenzie retired to Zephyrhills more than a decade ago from rural Maine with her husband, Ralph, who died in 2005. Back in her hometown of East Millinocket, Maine, relatives and friends were surprised to hear of her good fortune. Robert MacKenzie, Ralph’s brother, said the couple met just after World War II after Ralph got out of the Navy. He went to work in the town’s paper mill, laboring as a technician for almost four decades. He said the couple raised four children in East Millinocket, a town of less than 2,000 people in northern Maine. A daughter and son still live

in East Millinocket, another son lives in Florida and another daughter lives out of state, possibly in Massachusetts, he said. Robert MacKenzie said he didn’t know his sister-in-law had won until a reporter called him. “Holy mackerel,” he said when told of her winnings. He added: “It hasn’t soaked in, but I’m happy for her. That would be great because she’s a widow and she can have a nice home now.” One of the MacKenzies’ daughters, Melinda “Mindy” MacKenzie, a high school teacher, still lives in the family home in East Millinocket in a quiet middle-class neighborhood of white clapboard houses. Ralph MacKenzie enjoyed snowmobiling, hunting and fishing, said Andrew Hopkins, a retired high school teacher and assistant principal who taught some of the MacKenzie children. “They were good people. That’s about all I can tell you,” said Hopkins, who lives across the street.

DOG PARK from page one 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. Brie Stanley, president of Happy Tails, said that the park would be larger than most dog parks in the state and the play pen for puppies would be unique. There are nine urban dog parks in the state — in Concord, Portsmouth, Hooksett, Manchester, Derry, Rochester, Nashua, Conway and Dover — seven of them on municipal property, but only four managed by the municipality. Stanley said that 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. Stanley said that Happy Tails will present a conceptual plan to the Technical Review Committee convened by the Planning Department on Wednesday, June 12, to the Parks and Recreation Commission the following week and finally to the City Council. 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. .

OBAMACARE from page 2 Senate. In a 170-113 vote, the House also re-affirmed its support for bringing state insurance rules in line with the federal law. After passing a bill in March, the House added that bill’s language as an amendment to an unrelated measure Wednesday as a backup given that the Senate appears poised to kill the original. Opponents of accepting the grant money argued that public outreach should be left to the federal government. But supporters argued that the community health centers, hospitals and other organizations that know New Hampshire’s uninsured population best should play a leading role in educating them about the complicated law. “It’s high time we got off the dime and started helping our citizens learn about Obamacare and how it affects them, what benefits it offers and what the cost of coverage will be,” said Rep. Ed Butler, D-Harts Location. “Regardless of what you think about the law, we should be able to agree that all New Hampshire residents deserve to be informed about the changes that are coming.” Under the overhaul law, new insurance marketplaces will offer individuals and their families a choice of

workers at major companies already get. The government will help many middle-class households pay their premiums, while low-income people will be referred to safety net programs they might qualify for. Enrollment starts Oct. 1 with coverage taking effect Jan. 1. After that, virtually everyone in the country will be required by law to have health insurance or face fines. New Hampshire opted not to establish its own marketplace and is partnering with the federal government to regulate insurers and provide consumer assistance. But the process has been slowed by persistent disagreements about who has the final say over implementing the law. Rep. John Hunt, R-Rindge, said he believes the insurance department can’t spend any of the grant money, even if accepted, without the approval of the Legislature’s Joint Health Reform Oversight Committee. He offered an amendment Wednesday that would explicitly spell that out, but it failed to pass. Opponents of accepting the federal money argued that the health overhaul law is a federal law that should be explained by federal officials. “It’s not something we have any

Dolecal appointed to Tilton-Northfield Fire Commission NORTHFIELD — Pat Clark of Tilton and Paul Auger of Northfield, the two members of the TiltonNorthfield Fire District Commission remaining after the resignation of Tom Gallant, last evening selected Les Dolecal of Tilton from among four candidates — all women — to serve the balance of Gallant’s term until the annual district meeting in March 2015. A native of Chicago raised in upstate New York, Dolecal served as a deputy sheriff in Rochester for 12 years before moving to Oregon in 1988 where she became the inspector general of the Department of Corrections. In 2002 she came to New Hampshire as Assistant Commissioner of Corrections. Currently she is the assistant superintendent of the Merrimack County Department of Corrections. A resident of Tilton, Dolecal served on the committees that recommended candidates for the positions of town administrator and police chief and also was a member of the panel screened candidates for police chief in Northfield.

Dolecal said that she was asked to apply for the seat on the commission, which she considers a “short-term” position. “My feeling is not to run for the position when it is on the ballot,” she said. “Sometime ago I decided not to run for elective office and I’m not anxious to change that.” Alluding to the tensions that have divided the commission, which ultimately prompted Gallant to publicly air his differences with Clark in his letter of resignation, Dolecal said she aimed “to help bring stability to the commission by putting some of the obstacles behind us and lay the groundwork for continued success.” Jane Alden and Judy Tilton, both od Tilton, and Gretchen Wilder of Northfield were the other candidates. Both Auger and Clark commented on the strength of the field, saying they were impressed by all the candidates. — Michael Kitch

from preceding page particular knowledge of,” said Rep. Dan McGuire, R-Epsom. “This is something the federal government could do as easily, if not more easily, than we could.” Supporters countered that the public is hungry for information. One lawmaker described being approached by someone who had heard radio ads in Vermont about that state’s progress in implementing the law and who wondered when New Hampshire would do the same. Another said her uninsured hair stylist questions her every six weeks about when there will be more information. “People out there have no idea what’s going on, and it’s up to us to explain it,” said Rep. David Huot, D-Laconia. Opponents of the second bill cast it as an attempt to move New Hampshire toward a state-operated

marketplace. “Let’s not be adopting the Affordable Care Act. It’s not New Hampshire’s mess, it’s the federal government’s mess, and we need to stay away from it,” said Rep. Pam Tucker, R-Greenland. Rep. Bill O’Brien, R-Mont Vernon, said instead of a partnership exchange, New Hampshire will end up with a “partnership of confusion.” He said the voting for the amendment would be like telling the state’s residents to “put on a blindfold and jump off that cliff.” But supporters noted that the same law that prohibits the state from having its own marketplace or exchange also requires the state insurance department to retain as much of its traditional authority as possible. “We should not be giving away the right to direct our health care insurance processes,” Butler said.

KNIVES from page 2 a letter to Pistole asking him to keep in place the current policy prohibiting passengers from including the knives and other items in their carry-on bags. Flight attendant unions organized protests in Washington and at airports across the country. And Airlines for America, which represents major U.S. airlines, as well as top executives from some of the nation’s largest airlines, came out against the plan. “After getting the input from all these different constituents, I realized there was not across-theboard support that would serve us well in moving forward,” Pistole said. By dispensing with the controversial proposal, he said the agency can focus on programs to identify the greatest security threats. “It is a recognition that, yes, these items could be used as weapons, but I want our folks to focus on

those things that, again, are the most concern given the current intelligence,” he said. Pistole’s announcement that he was dropping the plan came as the House was expected to vote on an amendment to a Homeland Security spending bill that would block the TSA from spending money to implement the plan. The amendment will still be offered and it is expected to pass, said Eben Burnham-Snyder, a spokesman for Rep. Ed Markey, D-Massachusetts, a sponsor of the amendment. Pistole’s decision is a “victory for every single person who sets foot on a plane, and a reaffirmation that the government listens to the people,” Markey said in a statement. But some opponents changed their position in recent weeks as Pistole explained his reasoning to see next page

Wellington State Park boat ramp open again BRISTOL (AP) — The Wellington State Park boat access facility at New Hampshire’s Newfound Lake is open once again after being shut down for repairs. Workers replaced a missing piling and set new pilings to install a floating dock. The ramp closed just after Memorial Day weekend so the work could

be done. The boat ramp was built in 1996. Last September, Fish and Game officials replaced the old concrete boat launch ramps at the site with ramps of a newer, more innovative design. Newfound is one of the state’s largest lakes.

Among those who initially criticized the TSA plan was Debra Burlingame, whose brother Charles was the pilot of the plane that hit the Pentagon in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. “They laid out a case for this that I thought made a lot of sense, and I really changed my mind,” she said in an interview. “The TSA is so overwhelmed with the screening process and what they are trying to keep off airplanes, that

I think to lessen that difficult task or mitigate it can be a good thing,” Burlingame said. “There is a safety issue. But there is a difference between safety onboard an aircraft and security aboard an aircraft.” The proposal would have permitted folding knives with blades that are 2.36 inches (6 centimeters) or less in length and are less than 1/2 inch (1 centimeter) wide. The aim was to allow passengers to carry pen knives, corkscrews with small blades and other knives.

Sachems knocked out of baseball playoffs by Conant

MANCHESTER — Laconia’s bid for a state high school baseball championship ended in the semifinal round of the NHIAA Division III tourney last night at Southern N.H. University, where the Sachems were beaten 5-3 by Conant (Jaffrey). Laconia, the tourney’s top seed, finished a stellar

campaign with a 17-2 record. The Orioles entered the tournament as the 5th seed and will not play Somersworth for the title on Saturday at NE Delta Dental Stadium, home of the Fisher Cats.

Bruins go up 3-0 with 2 OT win over Penguins BOSTON -- Patrice Bergeron scored 15:19 into the second overtime to lead the Boston Bruins to a 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins and a 3-0 series lead in the Eastern Conference finals on Wednesday night. The victory gave Boston a commanding edge in the best-of-seven series and a chance to advance to the Stanley Cup finals in Game 4 on Friday night

at home. Tuukka Rask stopped 39 shots for the Bruins. Tomas Vokoun made 52 saves for the Penguins one game after he was yanked from the net after giving up three quick goals in the first period. David Krejci also scored for Boston. Chris Kunitz scored Pittsburgh’s only goal.

BOSTON (AP) — One night after setting season highs for both runs and hits in a thumping of Texas, the Boston Red Sox couldn’t muster much support for starter John Lackey in a 3-2 loss to the Rangers on Wednesday. Lackey, however, will take his performance every time out. The right-hander delivered his fourth straight quality start, allowing just one run on five hits with five strikeouts and no walks over six innings. “I think I’ll take giving up one run for the rest of the way,” he said after his first no-decision of the season. “I feel pretty good. I feel like I’m competing at a pretty high level right now.” The 34-year-old spent time on the disabled list earlier this season with a right biceps strain, which came after he missed the entire 2012 season following successful Tommy John surgery to reconstruct a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. Lackey threw 108 pitches against Texas. He has surrendered three earned runs or less in eight of his nine starts this season, permitting one earned run or less in five of those outings. “He’s a veteran guy with a lot of success, and now that the competing with his own body is behind him, yeah, I see that growing each time he goes out there,” Red Sox manager John Farrell said.

Lackey likes the results so far. “I’m definitely happy where I’m at,” he said, “but you guys keep thinking I’m surprised that I’m successful. I’ve been pretty good in this league a few times.” Lackey’s lone mistake Wednesday came in the fourth inning on a 1-2 cutter to Adrian Beltre, who hit the pitch into the center-field stands for his 12th home run and a 1-0 lead. It was too bad for Lackey that he wasn’t on the mound Tuesday night, when the Red Sox had 19 hits in a 17-5 rout of the Rangers. “We couldn’t put any runs on the board for him, which kind of stinks,” Saltalamacchia said. “I think for a personal note, it was good for him to go out there and throw like that.” Elvis Andrus hit a tiebreaking, two-run double in the seventh inning after earlier ending a 1-for18 slump as the Rangers snapped a four-game road losing streak. Saltalamacchia doubled in a run for Boston in the eighth, but Joe Nathan pitched the ninth for his 18th save in 19 chances. Neal Cotts (1-0) got the win despite walking three of the four batters he faced. Craig Breslow (2-1) took the loss. Dustin Pedroia tied the game with his fourth homer in the sixth off Alexi Ogando, who returned after being on the disabled list since May 16.

Wine and tapas testing at Tavern 27 Saturday night LACONIA — Winemaker Kenny Likitprakong of Hobo Wine Company will be at Tavern 27 at 8 p.m. Saturday, June 8 for an evening of Wine and Tapas. Likitprakong started his company, Hobo Wine Co. in 2002 in California at Hallcrest Vineyards in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The Hobo Wine Co. makes and markets a distinctly nontraditional series of wines using sustainably farmed, organic grapes and vegan methods of wine making. His wines are notably approachable and unpretentious, just like the winemaker himself. Likitprakong had determined that Hobo Wine

Company would make no guarantees about repeating a varietal year after year. Each bottling would be a live-in-the-moment, you-may-not-get-it-again release. “Kenny’s wines are not widely available and we are extremely fortunate to have them here in New Hampshire,” states Leslie Judice, co-owner and chef of Tavern 27. “His wines are the kind that chefs love, as they have a very clean flavor profile that pair well with food. Being that we share Kenny’s appreciation for quality, organic ingredients, we are extremely see next page

PLYMOUTH — Mary Ellen Sakura, a resident of Thornton, has a new show opening June 9 at at the Gallery at Red Gate Farm on Highland Street in Plymouth. This collection of work by Ms. Sakura is aptly named “Exploring the World Around Us”. A broad spectrum of subjects are explored in this show, but the underlying theme in this body of her work of oils, acrylics and prints is that of the natural world which surrounds people living in the Lakes Region and White Mountains of New Hampshire. Ms. Sakura and her husband David have been residents of the area for many years, living formerly in Waterville Valley where they have been active supporters of the Rey Center since its inception. Ms. Sakura is a retired school teacher with over 37 years of experience working with adults as well as kindergarten through High School students.

Demonstration by master knife maker Zach Jonas on Friday, June 14 at Crafts League’s Meredith shop “The knife is man’s oldest and most useful tool, but they can also be objects of great beauty,” says knife maker Zach Jonas. Zach hand crafts functional knives with sharp blades that capable of performing to a very exacting standard and are also exquisite, with smoothly polished wood handles. His knives are both functional and collectible works of art. The League of NH Craftsmen Meredith Retail Gallery, located at 279 Daniel Webster Highway, is featuring Jonas’s work during Bike Week, and he will be giving a demonstration of his technique on Friday, June 14, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jonas is a newly juried member of the League. With an undergraduate degree in philosophy and a post baccalaureate diploma from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, he has been crafting handmade knives since 2007. He apprenticed under For Tee Times 528-GOLF (4653) 528-PUTT (7888)

Master Smith J.D. Smith through the American Bladesmith Society and the Massachusetts Cultural Council. He has also traveled to learn from other ABS Master Smiths, a Grandmaster engraver and a Master Japanese sword maker. He was awarded membership in the League of NH Craftsmen in 2012. “I draw much of my inspiration from a global variety of rich and long-standing traditions of bladecraft,” says Zach. “I am intrigued by the mystique and technical perfection of the samurai blade, by the sinuous curves of the Persian and Indian armory, and by the hardheaded pragmatism of Western pieces. It is not only the aesthetics that I seek to draw from these traditions, but also the beauty of function; without function, a knife is only an ornament, and without beauty, it is nothing more than a means to an end.” see next page

Completely restocked Sandwich League Gallery opens Saturday at 10 a.m. SANDWICH — The Sandwich Home Industries, (SHI) opened its Gallery doors this past Mother’s Day, with a completely restocked shop of art and craft merchandise from over 167 juried league of New Hampshire craftsmen. This is the 87th consecutive year for the Center Sandwich shop on the town green and, following a decades old tradition, the organization will present various demonstrations throughout the summer. The work of Elaine Fuller of Red Door Pottery, who gave the season’s first demonstration, is featured in the gallery. “Having Elaine start our education program for 2013 is so appropriate,” said Sandy Joncas, Director of Education for SHI, “she is one of the most popular artisans that demonstrate throughout the season at the Gallery and sets a high standard of excellence.’’ This year the Gallery has more new artisans work than ever before. “We are excited to introduce several new artists for the Gallery, including Mark White of Wilton and his astonishing contemporary jewelry” said Julie Deak, Gallery Director. Another new artist this year is Grant Taylor of South Acworth, who crafts traditional leather belts in various styles and sizes. He learned his craft from an old friend of the Sandwich community and gallery, Gordon Keeler (wooden bowls and belts) who died last summer after over 50 years of wood turning and leather work. “ For more than 25 years, the League has conducted an “annual Christmas Ornament contest” among all statewide juried craftspeople and a year in advance the shop managers select the one they like the best. This year’s ornament, which will be on sale at the Sandwich Gallery, is a miniature, woven black ash basket with a white oak handle made by Alice Ogden, of Salisbury. Ogden has been with the League since 1980, making baskets of all sizes. Some of her creations will be on display at the Smithsonian Museum this fall though January 12, 2014. SHI’s President Peter Van Winkle says that the Industries recently held its annual meeting and released the 2012 performance report. “Probably the most stunning statistic this past year is the 3 year, 350% increase in Art and Craft classes. The continued and growing interest in our education program for both children and adults has caused us to reassess our long term education strategies and may involve a major capital program to expand our class room and studio facilities”. Three new board members were welcomed by SHI at the meeting; Jennifer Allen, of Sandwich, Linda Spear of Madison and Diane Garfield of Center Harbor. One of the largest single day educational programs operated by the Industries is the “Artisans on see next page from preceding page Along with Zach’s knives, the Meredith Retail Gallery showcases a wide range of handcrafted items made by juried members of the League of NH Craftsmen. Today the League of NH Craftsmen Meredith Gallery represents nearly 250 artists and craftspeople. Offering quality handmade work by New Hampshire’s finest artists, it features glass, pottery, wrought iron, metal sculpture, wood, jewelry, fiber and wearable art. There are classes, workshops, lectures, and demonstrations throughout the year to educate the public about the techniques and creativity that goes into fine handcraft, and why it is so valuable. Founded in 1932, the League of NH Craftsmen is one of the oldest and most prestigious craft organizations in the country. The League was formed during the years of the Depression to help New Hampshire craftspeople make a living through difficult financial times, through education and by building an audience and market for fine handmade craft.

As the girl moves through nature’s seasons, she comes to realize that the beauty that surrounds her is God’s work. This book works as a children’s picture book and also as a keepsake gift book. Murray’s poem is wonderfully and colorfully illustrated by Marissa Corbin.

Explore how food grows through ‘Walk and Talk’ programs offered at Moulton Farm MEREDITH — Moulton Farm is bringing back two popular programs enabling the public to explore the farm that has been producing food for more than 100 years. “Last year we invited the public to get a ‘behind the scenes’ view of the farm through our ‘Walk and Talk’ series,” says John Moulton, owner of the Meredith farm. “It was very popular and gave a lot of people the opportunity to see how we grow food and some of the methods we use to preserve the soil for future generations. We’re happy we can do this again this year.” The sessions are free and will be held on the second Tuesday of the month from June through September. The first ‘Walk and Talk’ session will be on Tuesday, June 11 at 6 pm. In addition to walks in the fields, some sessions will feature special activities. Sessions start at the farm stand and last approximately one hour. The events are rain or shine and sturdy footwear is strongly suggested. “Join us one time or for every session,” invites Moulton. “The farm is always changing and nature is always making life interesting in one way or another.” The farm will also continue its popular ‘Little Sprouts’ program which introduces young children to how food grows. Children ages 5 through 9 can help plant, maintain, and harvest a vegetable garden. As part of the once a month Wednesday morning sessions children will learn about gardening methods, bugs, worms, watering, and sun. There is a small fee for the program and advanced sign up is strongly recommended. Children can attend one session or multiple sessions. The first session is on June 26.

information that isn’t pertinent to your audience. Your brevity puts you in a class above. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There are no right answers or wrong answers today. There are just mindful and less mindful answers. The more thought you put into you response to the world, the better the reaction will be. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You may take sheer joy in an experience, but the person who wasn’t there will find it difficult to understand. Practice telling the story. Your storytelling skills will someday take you far in life. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Why should a tree be judged by its fruit? That’s the old wisdom. There is so much to a tree. Take the holistic approach to the “tree” in your own life. Maybe there’s a different way to judge the situation. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 6). Through the next six weeks, a development in your personal life makes life exciting. Old relationship problems smooth out, favorably affecting other areas of your life. Finances free up so you can afford the item you know will make your work better. You’ll see a different part of the world in July and November. Aries and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 33, 50, 26, 5 and 46.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your relatives have set a precedent, and now it’s up to you to follow the example. You’ll feel their energy bearing down on you, but not in an overly aggressive way. It’s just the push you need. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Do not accept more work than you are currently handling. It will be tempting to say “yes,” but if you do so off the cuff, you are not taking enough into consideration. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are curious but not exactly adventurous enough to branch out just yet. It’s wise to test the waters. Singles: A restless feeling may cause you to drift into the arms of someone unexpected. CANCER (June 22-July 22). What was broken will now be fixed. Bonus: The cost will be minimal. An encounter with neighbors will be another point of interest. What are they doing there? LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Computers, electrical systems and other technical devices will be part of today’s plot. Hopefully, everything is working as it should, but if not, there are people standing by to help. Don’t fly blind in this regard. Get recommendations. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Go on and demonstrate your unique approach. You have courage, integrity and more. You’ll influence people and gain fans. It’s not an overnight process, but that’s good because you’re in it for the long haul. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Question: How can you change your loved one’s mind? Answer: You can’t. But you can be so firmly convicted in your own mind that you make your point of view seem righteous, joyous and way more fun. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If you’re feeling a little creatively drained, remember: Each rock creates its own space. If a rock can be creative, so can you. And today you have it in you to put something in the world that wasn’t there before. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, June 6, 2013— Page 23


Dear Annie: My husband is a high-ranking officer in the military. He has worked hard to achieve his current position and is highly respected. The problem is, his family treats him like a child. In a few months, there will be a formal ceremony to mark his change of command. My in-laws will be in attendance, and they are certain to embarrass him. They insist on calling him by his unusual childhood nickname (he cringes every time). They talk down to him and give him gifts meant for children, such as books for teen boys (last Christmas), a small child’s backpack (last birthday) and now a child’s piggy bank, which they intend to present to him in front of his unit at the ceremony. These gifts are not intended as jokes. My husband is always gracious on the outside but horrified on the inside. Is there some way to remind his family that he is indeed an adult and has certainly earned the right to be treated like one? -- Proud Military Spouse Dear Spouse: It is difficult to change ingrained behavior without the cooperation of all the people involved. Your husband apparently has determined that the best way to handle his parents is to leave things as they are. That is his choice. While we appreciate your desire to be supportive and protective, you might also be adding to his stress because your reaction is one of anger and embarrassment. Ask your husband whether he wants you to talk to his parents. If he says no, we urge you to separate their behavior from your husband’s reputation. His patient tolerance of their inappropriateness says many positive things about the strength of his character. Dear Annie: My nephew, “Joe Smith,” has a Ph.D. He is marrying “Jane Doe,” who will soon have her M.D. What is the proper form of address for her? Would she be


Dr. Jane Doe-Smith or Ms. Jane Doe-Smith or something else? When I address an envelope to both of them, do I write Dr. and Dr. Joe Smith or Dr. and Mrs. Joe Smith or The Doctors Joe and Jane Smith? It is difficult to be politically correct these days. -- S. Dear S.: It’s complicated, but not impossible. When introducing either of them, always use “Dr.” If you are using titles when addressing an envelope, it would depend on whether it is formal (“Dr. Jane Smith and Dr. Joe Smith”) or informal (“The Doctors Smith”), and whether she is retaining her maiden name (“Dr. Jane Doe” and “Dr. Joe Smith” on separate lines). If she is hyphenating her name, find out whether she prefers “Dr. Jane Doe-Smith” or “Dr. Jane Smith-Doe” and use that. When in doubt, ask what the preference is. Dear Annie: I could identify with the letter from “California,” who found out after 40 years of marriage that her husband had been cheating on her with prostitutes for the past two decades. She was unsure of what to do next. I, too, had a husband who cheated on me for 20 years. His conquests were also often prostitutes. After 35 years of marriage and five kids, I gathered up all of my courage and filed for divorce. It was the most difficult thing I have ever done. Fast-forward four years. I am a gainfully employed, personally fulfilled and happy community volunteer who is dating a sweet, kind 65-year-old widower. This man loves, cherishes and respects me in ways I never thought possible. I feel like a queen! I may live three more years or 30, but I will never regret making the change I did. Remember that no one can go back and make a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending. -- Heart Full of Joy in Pennsylvania
