Time Warner Cable co. proposes selling CBS programming a la carte

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Time Warner Cable Inc. CEO Glenn Britt has offered to end a four-day blackout of CBS stations in three major cities, saying the cable operator would allow CBS to sell its stations’ signal “a la carte” to consumers instead of bundling it with other channels. That would “allow customers to decide for themselves how much value they ascribe to CBS programming,” Britt said in a letter to CBS CEO Leslie Moonves that was released to the media. CBS Corp. said it is formulating a response. CBS signals have been blacked out to some 3 million Time Warner Cable subscribers in New York, Los Angeles and Dallas since Friday in a dispute over how much the cable operator has to pay for CBS programming. Britt’s proposal is a radical departure from how TV is sold today — in packages that can contain a hundred or more channels, many of which consumsee CABLE page 8

A-Rod will play while appealing 211 game suspension NEW YORK (AP) — Defiant till the end, Alex Rodriguez is intent on evading baseball’s most sweeping punishment since the Black Sox scandal. Rodriguez was suspended through 2014 and All-Stars Nelson Cruz, Jhonny Peralta and Everth Cabrera were banned 50 games apiece Monday when Major League Baseball disciplined 13 players for their relationship to Biogenesis of America, a Florida antiaging clinic accused of distributing banned

performance-enhancing drugs. The harshest penalty was reserved for Rodriguez, the New York Yankees slugger, a three-time Most Valuable Player and baseball’s highest-paid star. He said he will appeal his suspension, which covers 211 games, by Thursday’s deadline. And since arbitrator Fredric Horowitz isn’t expected to rule until November or December at the earliest, Rodriguez was free to make his season debut Monday night and play the

rest of this year. Sidelined since hip surgery in January, Rodriguez rejoined the Yankees five hours after the suspension in a series opener at the Chicago White Sox, scheduled to play third base and bat fourth. “The last seven months has been a nightmare, has been probably the worst time of my life for sure,” Rodriguez said. The other 12 players agreed to their see A-ROD page 27

WOLFEBORO (AP) — Republican state Sen. Jeb Bradley said Monday that the rumors are true: He’s preparing to challenge Democratic U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen in New Hampshire’s 2014 Senate contest. Bradley, a former congressman, disclosed his plans during a meeting with U.S. Rep. Peter King, a New York Republican who was visiting the area as he explores a presidential bid. When King asked Bradley whether he would run for the Senate, Bradley

responded, “All the rumors are true.” He added, “The reaction I’m getting is very positive.” The comments were not meant as a formal announcement, which would likely come later this year. Bradley later retreated from them, saying he had yet to make a final decision. Shortly after the conversation, state GOP executive director Matt Slater said, “Our party welcomes all candidates to the race, and we look forward to a productive

primary that will produce a fiscally responsible nominee who will beat Sen. Shaheen.” State Democratic Party spokesman Harrell Kirstein said: “New Hampshire’s middle-class families need someone on their side and Jeb Bradley has proven time and again that he isn’t.” Polling suggests that Bradley would have a difficult task ahead of him.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Jeff Bezos, the Amazon.com founder who helped bring books into the digital age, is going after another pillar of “old media”: the newspaper. Bezos is buying The Washington Post and other newspapers for $250 million, The Washington Post Co., announced Monday. Bezos is buying the paper as an individual.

Amazon.com Inc. is not involved. Washington Post chairman and CEO Donald Graham called Bezos a “uniquely good new owner.” He said the decision was made after years of newspaper industry challenges. The company, which owns the Kaplan education business and several TV stations, will change its name but didn’t

say what the new name will be. Bezos said in a statement that he understands the Post’s “critical role” in Washington and said its values won’t change. “The paper’s duty will remain to its readers and not to the private interests of its owners,” Bezos said to Post employees in a see POST page 5

Resourceful Barnstead man’s hydroponic systems popular with backyard growers By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

BARNSTEAD — The Comtois family first got into hydroponics in the summer of 2006, using a system designed for commercial growers which was effective but expensive. Hydroponic growing, a method of growing vegetables using mineral rich solutions in water and without soil, now occupies five acres of their 93-acre Sticks and Stones Farm. ‘’The cost of the system we started with was equal to what it cost us to have it shipped here. We worked with it over the years, but we were always buying someone else’s system. And our prices were too high as a result. So I decided to try building my own,’’ says Guy Comtois. He decided to make his own using off-the-shelf materials and developed a horizontal hydroponics system using four inch PVC pipe cut into four foot lengths that are mounted on stands which can hold 30, 60 or 120 plants. ‘’The PVC pipe is UV treated so that it can withstand the sun and we run a drip line through each of the pods that hold 10 plants each,’’ says Comtois, who says that the drip line is controlled by a timer and periodically circulates the nutrient-rich water through the growing medium, coconut

fiber from Sri Lanka. ‘’There are no weeds and we found that we could take sections of pipe to farmer’s markets and let people pick their own lettuce,’’ says Barbara Comtois, who added that lettuce, tomatoes, basil, onions and baby carrots all grow well in the system. Guy says it took him about a year

to perfect his home made system and that it wasn’t until a customer who owned a summer home on a nearby lake was so impressed with it that he asked Comtois to build him one so he could take it back to his home in Massachusetts. ‘’I never planned on making them to sell,’’ says Comtois, who since that

time has started making the units and marketing them as a U-Gro system over the Internet. He’s sold 100 of them so far, mostly to people in California and the Southwest. ‘’We’ve sold them in 15 states so far and I have a provisional patent which I’m hoping to finalize soon.’’ says Comtois, who says he’s already had offers to partner with investors who would have them built in China. ‘’I don’t want to do that. It would defeat the purpose of why I built them in the first place, which is to encourage people to grow food locally and avoid all the shipping costs associated with agriculture,’’ He’s still working on new variations of the U-Gro and is now developing one now which is solar-powered. He and his wife moved to Barnstead from Pelham in 2000, looking for a new life after seeing the town they had grown up in become overgrown with development. ‘’We went to a youth baseball game and realized that we didn’t know any of the other parents there, that the town had changed so much we didn’t recognize it anymore. That’s when we decided we wanted something that was a little slower-paced,’’ says Comtois. He had worked remodeling retail see HYDROPONIC page 9

Selectmen gave Planning Board no warning they wanted Funk removed as chair By Gail OBer & ed enGler THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

GILMANTON — Members of the town’s Planning Board were not officially informed the Selectboard intended to ask their chairman, John Funk, to step down until moments before it happened on June 13. An item had been placed on the agenda referring to a “letter from the selectmen” but no details were provided when the customary pre-meeting packet was e-mailed to board members on June 10, nor when they sat down to do business three days later. Planning Administrator Desiree Tumas told The Daily Sun that copies of the letter requesting Funk’s resignation were not included in the pre-meeting packet she sent out because she was told by new Town Administrator Arthur Capello to keep them to herself until the board reached the pertinent item on the agenda on the 13th. Capello, who had only been on the job for a couple of weeks at the time, told The Daily Sun the letter wasn’t distributed beforehand because “if something is controversial it’s passed out the night of the meeting.” Funk reacted to the request by polling the members of the board for their opinion on the matter and when a 4-2 majority, including Selectboard Chairman Ralph Lavin, agreed they wanted him to relinquish the gavel because of they way he had reacted to the Police Department’s investigation of a property dispute, he resigned from the board itself. No vote was actually taken. Board member Laurie Sanborn did not attend the meeting and was replaced for the evening by alter-

nate member Kevin Farquharson. Sanborn told The Daily Sun she had a family commitment to keep that night but she would have attended had she known what the selectmen were up to. Farquharson was one the four people who supported Frunk’s removal. The others were Lavin, Wayne Ogni and Roy Buttrick. Marty Martindale and John Weston wanted Funk to remain as chair. For his part, Selectman Brett Currier told The Daily Sun it should not have come as any surprise that he wanted Funk and some other veteran members off the Planning Board because he said as much when he successfully ran for office in 2012. Funk said he actually learned of the effort to remove him in a phone call from the third selectman, Don Guarino, that was placed about an hour before the June 13 meeting began. Guarino is the Selectboard’s normal representative on the Planning Board but, according to Funk, he revealed that Lavin would be taking his place that night and the letter mentioned on the agenda called for his resignation as chairman. Guarino, on the other hand, told The Daily Sun he “didn’t think it (the Selectboard’s letter) was going to be a subject at the (June 13) meeting.” And, he said he did not know Lavin was going to make a motion to remove Funk a chairman. Guarino also disclosed that the letter in question derived from a nonpublic Selectboard meeting a month earlier and he was charged with bringing it with him to the Planning Board’s May meeting. But after a discussion centered around Funk’s alleged

maligning of the reputation of the Police Department, he decided the matter had been thoroughly vetted and that was enough. Guarino kept the letter in his pocket that night and only distributed a couple of related legal opinions— one from Town Attorney Walter Mitchell and one from County Attorney Melissa Gulbrandsen — that agreed that the Planning Board had exceeded its authority by including a property rights paragraph that rests at the heart of the police investigation controversy in a letter it sent to construction contractor Ryan Benson back in September 2012. He also distributed a letter Police Chief Joe Collins sent to the Selectboard in April in which the chief voiced his strong opinion that, “Mr. Funk clearly cannot continue as chairman of the Planning Board.” When the two other selectmen, Lavin and Currier, learned that Guarino had not presented the letter asking for Funk’s resignation at the May Planning Board meeting, they pressed forward. The controversial Planning Board letter — drafted by Tumas and approved by then Chairman Nancy Girard — informed Benson he no longer had a town permit to run a commercial enterprise on a residential lot he had been renting. Further, the offending paragraph stated that if he did not remove his personal property from the lot within a coupe of weeks, ownership of that property would pass to his landlord. Sometime after the first of the year, the land owner used a copy of the letter to Benson as justification for having the contractor’s property removed by a third party. Police got involved because Benson then reported that his belongings had been stolen. The theft was investigated as a criminal matter by Sgt. Matt Currier, who, until he began looking into the matter, had no idea what was happening between, Benson, his landlord and the Planning Department. The police investigation, with advice from Mitchell and Gulbrandsen, concluded the Planning Board had overstepped its bounds by inserting itself into the personal property ownership arena. And then Chief Collins became agitated when Funk came to the defense of the appropriateness of the letter to Benson through a series of e-mails that apparently enjoyed wide circulation. Ironically, Funk had nothing to do with the original drafting of the letter, but said he was just defending the reputation of his board. Chief Collin’s April letter to selectmen stated, “He (Funk) continues disparage the Police Department and belittle the officers of the department, including the chief. I do not believe he will treat citizens fairly because once he sets his opine on issues he won’t listen to reason. . . “ The chief further stated his opinion that Funk, himself an attorney, should have agreed with the opinions of Mitchell and Gulbrandsen and admitted the Planning Board had made a mistake. Funk said lawyers disagree on lots of interpretations of law and that’s why judges have the final say. Funk also said he believes a lot of the controversy can be traced to Selectman Currier, who is Sgt. Currier’s father. Brett Currier told The Daily Sun that had he been a selectmen at the time of Funk’s most recent reappointment, he wouldn’t have voted to re-seat him. “I said it when I was running,” he emphasized, adding that he has nothing personal against Funk and appreciates and thanks him for his service to the town for the last 15 years. He said the reason he didn’t support Funk as chairman was because other people with different ideas wanted to serve on the Planning Board and previous Selectboards had continued to reappoint the same people, year after year. Funk, as the longest serving member, became chairman earlier this year when selectmen refused to reappoint Girard to another term. As to the discussion that started the ball rolling toward the selectmen’s request for Funk’s gavel, Brett Currier said Girard and Tumas came to a nonpublic session of the board to complain about the way police, and specifically his son, were investigating the reported theft of Benson’s property.

Routine ID checks lead police in 2 towns to arrest people wanted in other states By Gail OBer

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Two people alleged to be fugitives from justice appeared by video in the 4th Circuit Court yesterday — a woman who was arrested by Gilford Police and a man in a completely unrelated case who was apprehended by Belmont Police. Belmont Police arrested Thomas S. Jenkins, of 32 River Road in Gilford for failing to appear in the Fulton County, Georgia, Superior Court to answer to one count of possession of heroin. He is charged with one felony count of being a fugitive from justice. Jenkins was one of three people who were at Leslie Roberts Town Beach after it was closed on Sunday night. Police ran a routine check on all three and learned Jenkins was wanted by Fulton County. His lawyer argued that Jenkins was released 18 months ago from a Fulton County Superior Court holding cell and not given any paperwork or notice to appear. He said his client lived in Georgia for 18 months after he was released from custody and never got any notice that he was to appear in court. Belmont Police wanted him held on very high or no bail but Carroll told the prosecutor to “get a governor’s warrant.” Belmont Police said Fulton County officials have said they will extradite him. The Daily Sun confirmed with Fulton County officials yesterday that Jenkins was arrested on September, 9, 2011 for one count of heroin possession. His lawyer argued he is employed

full-time as a cook at a local restaurant and is a substitute teacher for the Gilford School District, which was confirmed by the superintendent of schools yesterday. After hearing bail arguments, Judge Carroll ordered him held on $500 cash and $10,000 personal recognizance bail, to live at 32 River Road, to not drink any alcohol or take any nonprescribed drugs, and to report daily to the Gilford Police until the matter of his alleged non-appearance can be unraveled. In an unrelated matter, Joann Wilcox, 42, of 10 Derry St. Apt. 2 in Manchester was a passenger in a car that was being driven on the Gilford By-Pass that was stopped by Gilford Police. When the officer learned the driver was operative with a suspended license, he asked if there was someone in the car who could drive the car. Wilcox said she was a licensed driver but when the officer checked to make sure, he learned she was wanted on a probation violation due to a previous charge of possession of a controlled substance from the 24th Judicial Circuit Court of Missouri. Affidavits indicated police spoke to Cpl. Cositino of St. Francois County, Missouri who said the state of Missouri would take full extradition of her. She is charged with one count of being a fugitive from justice. Judge Jim Carroll ordered she be held without bail until a hearing on August 19 when she can have a hearing status. She had waived extradition when arrested in Missouri.

Fire on Water Street quickly controlled

LACONIA — Firefighters from three communities assisted Laconia at a building fire on Water Street yesterday that charred through a second floor ceiling. Capt. Bob Landry said at 7:30 a.m. the owner the home at 92 Water Street noticed water was pouring down from the second floor ceiling in to the first floor. He said he ran upstairs and saw a charged spot on the bathroom floor near the attic wall that had burned through the floor. Landry said the homeowner ran downstairs and shut off the water and called 9-1-1. Landry said it appears there was an

electrical fire that melted the solder on the water pipe, the water from which extinguished most of the fire. He said when firefighters arrived smoke was coming from the eaves and a first alarm was called bringing firefighters from Gilford, Belmont and Meredith to the city to either Water Street or to cover city stations. “Any time we have a wood-frame home with smoke coming from the eaves, it’s at least a first alarm,” Landry said. He said the house is inhabitable and the cause of the fire is likely electrical and accidental. No one was injured. — Gail Ober

She has asked other senior managers to stay in their posts as well. “Mr. Bezos knows as well as anyone the opportunities that come with revolutionary technology when we understand how to make the most of it,” she said in a letter to readers. “Under his ownership and with his management savvy, we will be able to accelerate the pace and quality of innovation.”

from preceding page recused himself from the discussion and said he offered to leave the room as well but others present told him he didn’t have to. Currier said he subsequently signed the letter requesting Funk step down because the situation had grown to involve the entire Police Department and its relationship to some members of the Planning Board and didn’t necessarily revolve around his son.

Trust. . . or lack thereof We’ve heard the president and his spokesman and other administration officials call all of their broken trusts, “phony scandals”. We watched multiple Sunday morning news shows try to challenge the “phony” claim, only to listen as the Secretary of the Treasury did his best to obfuscate what happened that led to the IRS scandal. He actually had the audacity to try to make a case that the treatment of the “right” and the “left” was evenhanded and equal. Secretary Lew went on to say that supervisors were removed from their positions, and tried to make that the end of the story. He didn’t say who. He didn’t say they got demoted. He didn’t say they got fired. He didn’t mention that Lois Lerner, the IRS director of Exempt Organizations and the woman who refused to give sworn testimony to the Congressional Committee and “took the Fifth”, has not been demoted, replaced, or fired, she has been given a nice gift in the form of an extended paid leave. A reward for deceit. This type of action on the part of the Obama administration is not new. It has become commonplace for the Obama team to ignore constitutional restrictions. It has become commonplace for them to selectively decide which laws they will prosecute and which they won’t. And, importantly, it has become commonplace for them to challenge the separation of powers called for in our constitution. The Supreme Court was embarrassed by the president during his State of the Union message. They were embarrassed again when, just recently, the Attorney General refused to accept the findings of the court and announced he is going to require the state of Texas to comply with the 60-yearold decision that was overturned by the court’s recent decision. Please understand, the separation of powers requires cooperation by the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches. It is incumbent of the Executive Branch, through the offices of the Attorney General, to enforce the ruling of the courts . . . but this administration arbitrarily refuses to do so. That’s dictatorial! The president and his team have repeatedly talked of bypassing Congress when they don’t get what they want. One such example was the president making “recess appointments” when the Congress was in session. Such appointments can only be made when they’re not. The Con-

stitution provides two specifics in this area. The first is that the Constitution gives Congress the right to make its own rules. The other issue is that there are certain cabinet level and other appointments that the president can make that must receive “the advice and consent” of the Senate. Brazenly, knowing that he had people he wanted to appoint who would not have received the endorsement of the Senate, he chose to appoint them anyway as “recess appointments” when the Senate was technically in session. That’s not upholding the Constitution now, is it? Perhaps the most disturbing scandal of all is Benghazi. Four brave Americans were brutally murdered. Our ambassador was one of those four and he was raped/ sodomized, suffered any number of wounds, his body dragged through the streets, and tossed into a ditch along side a road. We watched as our in-territory diplomats testified that they had people that could have been to Benghazi in an hour. Other sources indicated that significant military might could be have been flown across the Mediterranean from Italy. But all were told to “stand down”. That cowardice was followed by words to the effect “We couldn’t have gotten there in time.” That excuse has two major flaws. The first is, how did the decision maker(s) know how long the battle would rage before our men were killed? The second point is that it appears the killings took place about six hours after the attack began. This tragedy demands answers. Not the “What difference does it make?” from former Secretary of State Clinton. And not the lies about the attacks being caused by some obscure video. Serious answers starting with, Mr. President where were you when the attacks in Benghazi were going on? What could have more importantly occupied your time than the Benghazi raid and the lives of our citizens? (If a soldier leaves his post and goes AWOL while his unit is engaged with the enemy, he can be charged with desertion.) And why have all the survivors of the Benghazi attacks been hidden from Congress? Why haven’t their names been released? Why are they prevented from telling their story? Transparent administration? It’s depending on you to be mute and stay uninformed . . . and so far, it’s working. (Bob Meade is a Laconia resident.)

LETTERS Thanks to Harry Bean family for skillful work on warming hut To The Daily Sun, Anyone traveling on Route 11-A near the Gilford Town Hall will notice that the former Gilford Outing Club warm-up hut has taken on a new and impressive appearance. It will not be long before the building is fully restored and added to the list of historic structures that have been saved from possible demolition. Harry Bean, a member of one of Gilford’s oldest families, recently came forward and volunteered to assist in the restoration project. He volunteered not only his services but also that of his construction crew, which consisted of his father, son, grandson, and an employee, Lou Sousa. During the initial meeting that was held to discuss the work required, Harry stated that he would be able to complete the work in a week. He and his crew did exactly that — they began on Monday morning and by Friday afternoon, he called us to let us know that the work was done and that they were moving on. He insisted that he did not want to be recognized for the volunteer labor he gave to this project. However, he and his

employees — his family — do need to be thanked for their thoughtfulness and generosity. They are truly dedicated to the town that their family has called home for many generations. Members of the Bean family never had a chance to belong the Gilford Outing Club — they were too busy working. Yet, they came forward and helped save one of the club’s historic structures, not for the recognition but because they felt it was the right thing to do. With that attitude, they would have made phenomenal members of the organization. The preservation of history is hard work, but it is rewarding and can bring out the best in people. There are some wonderful families living in Gilford, and the Bean family is one of them. We wish to wholeheartedly thank them for the skillful work they put into this restoration project. It has truly been a pleasure working with them. We are sure that the entire town appreciates their hard work, caring, and dedication. The Anderson Family Gilford

We need specifics: what Rx drug & what is the man’s ailment? To The Daily Sun, I found Hillarie Goldstein’s letter regarding Sarah Palin, death panels and a man who has to go to the emergency room every time he nears death because of some Obamacare rule to be highly suspicious. Firstly, a major goal of the ACA is to end the emergency room being the sole source of care for the uninsured. Hillarie Goldstein does not tell us what the drug that supposedly is not covered is so she makes it impossible to fact-check her. Very convenient, Hillarie!. Her story is very suspicious like all the nonsense that comes from the far right. I want to know what that drug is and what ailment the 60 year old suffers from that he has to go to the emergency room. No names. I understand privacy but in order for me not to suspect Ms Goldstein of being dishonest or just gullible, I have to be able to fact-check her. I see the ACA as a stepping stone towards universal health care. Sure, it has faults but it certainly beats a world where insurance companies can drop you when you get sick or refuse

to insure you because you have a condition. It beats a world where billions of dollars of unpaid emergency room bills end up jacking up everyone else’s premiums. Someone has to pay and it isn’t the people using ERs. Regarding all the whining about immigrant reform, that is fear mongering and in some, a degree of bigotry. Recently, over 100 conservative economists and the CATO institute have come out in favor of immigration reform because it will boost the nation’s economy. (http://americanactionforum.org/ topic/more-110-top-conservative-economists-send-letter-supporting-immigration-reform) Of course, we all know that the right wing obstructionist don’t give a damn about the economy or people in hard times. These high-functioning sociopaths will never be able to understand anyone else’s pain. They were born without empathy. Add to that the Obama Derangement Syndrome and there is a group that needs therapy. James Veverka Tilton

LETTERS A chilling message to all who would volunteer in Moultonboro

If you can’t show you live in N.C, voter ID is ‘impossible’ to get

To The Daily Sun, As an elected member of the Moultonboro Planning Board and speaking as a concerned private citizen, I am appalled at the recent actions of our Board of Selectmen to intimidate multiple members of the Planning Board by threatening them with removal by public hearing if they did not immediately resign. All without presenting any evidence to them. The Board of Selectmen in a “ non meeting” with Town Counsel Peter Minkow, voted unanimously 4-0 ( Selectmen Chris Shipp was not present ) to have the Town Administrator Carter Terenzini and Town Counsel deliver the message to two sitting, duly elected board members to resign or face the indignity of a public hearing seeking their removal. The charges were “neglect of duty” and “malfeasance”. A deadline was presented and if the resignation was not delivered, a letter would be forthcoming with the public “lynching” soon to follow. A tense selectmen meeting on August 1st enforced the lack of thought that the selectmen put into the process and the actions they authorized. The “defendant’ was not told who his accuser(s) were. He was not told the details of the charges and despite the fact that only he, Carter Terenzini and Peter Minkow were present and their versions of the meeting vary widely, the selectmen chose to unequivocally believe Mr. Terenzini’s version of events. In doing so they backhandedly called the defendant and his wife liars. No selectmen was present at the resignation meeting. How can that be? A matter as important and as personally damaging as this can be , the chair and or vice chair should have had (I will use a phrase I read this week from Neil Young in the Weirs Times) the testicular apparatus to discuss this with the accused themselves. Unless of course the idea to send Terenzini and Minkow was perhaps suggested and even orchestrated by someone else in town hall. “Gee, that sounds like a good idea, let’s do that”. Asking for an elected official’s resignation with these two very serious charges, has the potential to permanently damage their reputations. Couldn’t this have been discussed

To The Daily Sun, This is in response to Jon Hoyt’s letter in the July 31st edition of The Sun: Mr. Hoyt, I find your diatribe against the GOP to be disturbing on many levels, perhaps the biggest one being the absolute paranoia you display. Your accusation that the GOP is only able to win through voter suppression is ludicrous on the face of it. As a number of indictments, trials, and convictions have illustrated, it is primarily Democrats who have been suppressing the votes of legitimate voters, enabling non-eligible voters to vote, stuffing ballot boxes, finding “lost” ballot boxes in the trunks of Democrat election official’s cars, and allowing the dead to vote. How is it that laws such as Voter ID will suppress the vote of any eligible voter? You make the claim that in North Carolina a state issued ID is almost impossible to get, making it equally difficult to vote. Really? I made a call to the North Carolina Secretary of State’s office and inquired about what was needed to get a state issued ID. All that is required to receive an ID card is “verification of an up-to-date North Carolina address”. Acceptable forms of verification include military orders, correspondence from the Social Security or Veterans Administration, vehicle registration, or a North Carolina voter registration card.” With one of those documents and $5 you can get a state issued photo ID. The only way it is “almost impossible to get” is if you cannot prove you reside in North Carolina, you don’t have the $5 to pay for one, or are too darned lazy to go get one. Strike One. In regards to “student’s parents will be fined if their kids vote at their school”, I must assume you are talking about college students attending a school not in their home town or home state. It has not been uncommon in the past that those students would use absentee ballots from their home town to vote. If their legal residence is in another town or state then that’s where they should vote. There may be issues that you do not understand (or

with each of the individuals before taking such a bold step? How about with the Planning Board chair? Our Town Counsel also needs to brush up on the Right-to-Know law. Consultation with Town Counsel is indeed a non meeting, but then having a meeting during the consultation and taking votes is stretching the fabric of the RTK law to the ripping point. He should be advising his clients to be follow not only the letter of the law but the spirit of the law as well. The selectmen seem intent to hold a public hearing “to decide what to do” in the words of the Chair Joel Mudgett, but the damage is done and it is almost irreparable. Do they not understand the implications of what they set in motion? We have a shortage of volunteers. This sends a chilling message to all in any elected or appointed office that the Moultonboro selectmen will have you removed if you dare disagree with them or make decisions they do not approve of. No discussion, no chance for the individual boards to address their concerns themselves and no chance for the board members to even get the facts before the public execution. And your reputation will be permanently damaged. Is this the American way? Is this the New Hampshire way? No to both, but it is apparently the Moultonboro way, and it is a wrong as wrong can be. Our Planning Board has been very effective and accomplished a great deal despite the fact that we have a very wide range of opinions and often long-winded discussions that at times can get contentious. I don’t object to that and in fact I choose to celebrate that diversity of thought, but in the end, when the votes are taken, we move on to the next item on the agenda. No one is asked to resign. So our little quiet village will be in the spotlight across New Hampshire and not in a good way. If there are indeed public hearings, they will be very ugly and contentious and in the end there will be no winners. The selectmen should take a step back and withdraw their threat. And then apologize publicly to the people whose reputation they have harmed and to the public at large for their abuse of power. Paul T. Punturieri Moultonboro

Open Farm Day was a success & we’re working on next year To The Daily Sun, The 2nd Annual Barnstead Open Farm Day 2013 was a success. Lots of folks came out to visit our farms and talk with our farmers. The Barnstead Farmers and Gardeners Network, and our farmers, want to thank the local businesses that were very supportive of our event; Blueberry Station, Clark’s Grain Store, Dominick’s Restaurant and The White Buffalo Trading Post. These folks put out our booklets and give up space on their own business signs

to promote this event. We are so grateful for their generosity and support. We also want to thank the Suncook Valley Arts and Artisans Tour for their support. These talented folks worked hard to make this year’s event a success. Thank you for all that you did. We are already working on next year’s Open Farm Day, and look forward to offering the public an opportunity to see our farms in operation. Don Walker Barnstead

more likely, don’t care to understand). My question about your claim: How is it that parents of a student who is legally an adult can be held liable for the actions of their son/daughter? That goes against a couple of hundred years of American jurisprudence. If such a case were brought before a judge it would be thrown out as it’s no different that you being charged with a violation of the law for something your neighbor did while he was away on vacation. Strike Two. Next you make some a claim about private schools down there, tie them into Mitt Romney and his son Tagg, and state “they will be making a fortune on those private schools.” Okay, prove it. You made the accusation, NOW PROVE IT. Or is this just something else you picked out of thin air to back up yet another of your baseless accusations? You also say the GOP will “kick numerous unemployed off” (you didn’t state exactly what they would be kicked off from) and that their benefits will be cut off. I’m sorry, but if they’ve exhausted their 99 weeks (almost two years) of their unemployment benefits, how is that the fault of the NC GOP? Those are federal benefits administered by the state. If they haven’t found work after two years, I would place the blame on Washington, and particularly the Obama Administration for its failure to get the economy moving again. (I could go on and on about that particular subject, but I know it would fall upon the ears of a closed-minded individual incapable of forming a cogent opinion not based upon the same old tired leftist talking points, fueled by feelings and not upon provable facts.) Strike Three. All you have managed to do with your letter is show that you really have no idea about reality, that what it is you profess to know “just ain’t so”, that feelings override any facts that contradict your beliefs, and that you pull “facts” out of thin air to make your accusations sound legitimate. Nice try. Dale Channing Eddy Gilford

I’ve come to love those ‘giants’ seen from Tenney Mtn. Hwy. To The Daily Sun, “Do you see over yonder friend Sancho, thirty or forty hulking giants?” I intend to do battle with them and slay them.” “Take care cried Sancho, those over there are not giants but windmills.....they turn the millstone.” The idiom “tilting at windmills” comes from the English and means “attacking imaginary enemies” and I fear that these enemies still exist in the Lakes Region area. I have come to love those “giants” seen from Tenney Mountain Highway and no, they are not attached to millstones like the ones Don Quixote attacked but nevertheless they continue to serve a useful purpose — in this case creating energy with a very small carbon footprint. I even get concerned when a few of them are not turning and it doesn’t matter to me if they are producing energy for us or someone else. Many

columns why people are still tilting at these wonderful inventions. Sound, sight, light flicker, health and the general impact on the environment. Try as I may, I can’t find any credible evidence for any of them as long as they remain at least eight hundred and fifty meters away from humans. Nothing is perfect and windmills do kill a few birds but when you consider fossil fuel alternatives, transmission lines, building windows, pesticide use, domestic and feral cats, it’s a drop in the bucket. Of course beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. I for one find them pleasant to look at. It’s reassuring to know that nature can be harnessed for our benefit instead of being its victim. As for people who spend half their year on the lakes and don’t want their property values to go down—my sympathy bucket is pretty empty at the moment.

Page 8 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, August 6, 2013

COUNTY from page one Executive Committee of the convention and Jane Cormier (R-Alton), clerk of the convention, met with Commissioner John Thomas (R-Belmont), chairman of the commission, County Administrator Debra Shackett and County Finance Director Glen Waring. Attorneys David Horan, representing the convention, and Sharon Somers and Robert Derosier, representing the commission, were also present. The purpose of the meeting, Worsman explained in her e-mail, was “to see if we could find some common ground regarding the budget, spending and if executive approval is or is not necessary for the 90+ fund transfers that have been made including now in excess of $25,000 out of the contingency fund.” Throughout the 2013 budget process the Republican majority of the convention has insisted that the convention can rewrite the budget proposed by the commission by adding or deleting, raising or lowering appropriations for particular line items. And, in the course of managing the budget, the commission may only reallocate funds from one line to another with the approval of the Executive Committee of the convention. With equal resolve the commissioners claim that the authority of the convention is limited to itemizing appropriations in 13 categories accord with the “Statement of County Appropriations and Revenue as Voted,” or MS-42 form, submitted to the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration. Within these categories, the commission contends it can distribute funds among different lines without the approval of the convention as long as expenditures do not exceed the total appropriations of the particular categories. “The commissioners position,” Worsman told members of the convention after the meeting, “is that they can spend money any way they so long as they don’t exceed the bottom line. This obviously clashes with the many votes taken by the convention that will heavily affect the 12014 budget.” Last week’s meeting stemmed from correspondence that began in June when Horan wrote to Thomas informing him that the commission had changed the amounts the convention budgeted in 91 separate line items and added dollar amounts to lines the convention left blank without seeking the approval of either the convention or its Executive Committee. He asked that the commission “immediately cease spending money from budget lines where zero money was appropriated, comply with the budget adopted by the convention and submit written requests to the Executive Committee for all transfers. He noted that the Executive Committee was meeting on June 24 and asked the commissioners to reply before the meeting. Nearly a month later, Somers replied on behalf of the commission

and refused to yeild an inch. “Having reviewed your points,” she began, “I believe and have advised the commission that your conclusions are not supported by New Hampshire law and that . . . the commissioners have acted correctly, prudently and legally.” Somers closed by remarking that commissioners wish “to move past this current impasse” and proposed that the chairman, vice-chairman and clerk of the convention, together with one of its five Democratic members, meet with Shackett and Waring. Rep. David Huot (D-Laconia) was troubled by news of the meeting. “The convention voted to hire an attorney and vote to authorize Colette (Worsman) to be the contact person,” he told The Daily Sun. “But, we never voted to authorize her to hold private meetings. What upset me the most,” he continued, “was that we weren’t told about the meeting until after the fact.” Huot said that he was “disappointed” that Worsman chose Tilton and Cormier to represent the convention without considering any other Republicans and “shut the Democrats out of the governing process altogether.” He said that he believes neither the convention nor the commission is “100-percent right” and suggested his perspective should be represented. Worsman told The Daily Sun that those who attended the meeting on Friday were carefully chosen to ensure a private meeting that did not contravene the “Right-to-Know” law. She said that she invited Tllton because he chairs the Executive Committee, which oversees the administration of the budget, and Cormier, who as clerk could take minutes if necessary. “I can’t help the fact that there are 13 Republicans and five Democrats on the delegation,” Worsman said. “I can’t change the facts.” Responding to misgivings expressed by Huot and Rep. Ruth Gulick (D-New Hampton) in an e-mail chain, Rep. Richard Burchell (R-Gilmanton) wrote, “Republicans do not get to whine in Concord when things do not go their way which is virtually always. What gives anyone the right to complain about the very open process which has been used in the county delegation?” To Huot he wrote, “Get a subpoena.” Worsman said that she was concerned that Huot provided her e-mail to members of the convention to the press, claiming that because it was copied to Horan it was a protected communication between client and attorney. Although Worsman indicated in her e-mail that the convention would file suit, she declined to comment to the newspaper what steps the convention would take next. Instead, she said that the convention has taken no decisions and will be consulting with its legal counsel. “This is tremendously unfortunate,” she said. “It saddens me that we need to protect the taxpayers of Belknap County.”

from preceding page drive down Highland St. towards Hannaford and look to your left. With all those double telephone poles and wires it looks like earth after all the rich people have gone to Elysium — and not one complaint! One wonders where all the impetus comes from when action is needed. Perhaps real estate and lake-front developers, golf course owners, tourist industry

and even environmentalists on occasion? The rest is easy. If you grew up with Gene Autry you’ll know how easy it is for the bad guys to stir up a town and form a lynch mob.

PLANNING from page one neither Terenzini nor the selectmen have explained the circumstances and conduct that led the board to vote to request their resignations. Nor has either received a formal statement detailing the nature of the charges against them. However, both acknowledge that Terenzini indicated that the proceedings arose from their conduct during the Planning Board’s deliberation of a request for a conditional use permit (CUP) by Bear’s Nest Trail, LLC. Bartlett and Ryerson said that Terenzini told them that “outside people” had questioned their behavior, but refused to identify the source of the complaints. “We cannot find out who is making these accusations,” Bartlett said. Bear’s Nest Trail, LLC constructed a 900-square foot lookout tower, with an average height of 27 feet, around 1,200 feet up the east flank of Red Hill without obtaining the necessary permits from the Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBA) and Planning Board. Reluctant to remove the structure, the property owner approached the ZBA and the Planning Board for approvals after the fact. In June, the ZBA granted a variance from the ordinance prohibiting development on slopes in excess of 25-percent and referred the matter to the Planning Board, which addressed the request for the CUP on June 26 and again on on July 10. In order to grant the CUP, the board was required to find that the project satisfied 11 criteria and performance standards prescribed by the zoning ordinance. When, after one public hearing and a site visit, the board met on July 10 two of these proved especially controversial: one, requiring the project be consistent with “the spirit and intent of the ordinance” and another requiring that there be no “practicable alternatives” to the project and that all measures have been taken to minimize its impact.” The minutes record that when the board was “polled” on the 11 criteria and standards, it deadlocked three-tothree on the two issues, with Bartlett abstaining on both and Ryerson voting “no” on both. According to the minutes, Bartlett said that he was “furious that this thing went ahead without a permit.” He said that he abstained because he did not believe the two criteria

were met. However, he also explained that “despite the fact that we want to pretend that this thing has not been built, the alternative really is to deny it and the effect of that would be to either require it to be moved or taken down or some other, or maybe we go to court for six months or a year. None of which,” he was reported to say, “are going to do anybody a lot of good.” Although Bartlett conceded the board would be sending “a very bad message,” he concluded that “it is the best interest of the town and the towns people” to grant the CUP and offered a motion to approve the request. At that point, several members noted that because board split on the two criteria, it had no choice but to deny the CUP. Paul Punturieri then proposed amending the motion to approve the CUP, which would restrict cutting and require re-vegetation of the site. Tom Howard, the chair of the board who had recused himself from discussion of the merits of the case, raised a point of order, noting that “a tie vote is a failure on the motion,” and cautioning that “to take this further before definitively making that point . . . is critical.” He suggested that were the board to vote yes after first voting no, its decision could be open to appeal. Bartlett countered that the board was polled on the 11 criteria and standards, but did not “vote”. After much discussion, the minutes record that Ryerson, who originally was polled as a “no” asked if she could change her vote to “yes”, noting that she had not voted on a motion, but been polled. After adopting Punturieri’s amendment, the motion to grant the CUP carried by a vote of five-to-two, with Punturieri and Peter Jensen dissenting. Both Bartlett and Ryerson voted with the majority alongside Russ Wakefield, the selectmen’s representative, Bob Goffredo and Keith Nelson. According to statute (RSA 673:13) the selectmen may remove elected members of local land use boards only for “inefficiency, neglect of duty, or malfeasance in office” and then only after a public hearing. The Selectboard has yet to schedule a public hearing. “I’m heartsick over this whole thing,” said Bartlett, who has retained an attorney. “I’m absolutely stunned,” echoed Ryerson. “Changing your mind is not against the law.”

CABLE from page 2 Craig Moffett, an industry analyst with Moffett Research LLC, called the proposal “mostly a bit of theater” that CBS would never accept. “CBS would never agree to a model where customers could opt to take it or leave it,” he said. “The economics of that would never be as attractive as the current model, where everyone has to pay whether they want the service or not.” Investors seemed to shrug at the proposal.Time Warner Cable shares slipped 68 cents or half a percent to finish at $116.42. CBS shares dipped 67 cents, a little more than 1 percent, to close at $53.86 Monday. TV station owners like CBS want to boost revenue and profit from the fees they charge to distributors — and many industry observers see this as their prime engine of growth in the coming years. But pay TV distributors say they’re trying to keep costs low to hang onto subscribers sick of paying higher monthly bills. Retransmission

fees paid by cable, satellite and telecommunications providers are set to double by 2018 to $6 billion, according to research firm SNL Kagan. The fee fights have become common in recent years. Most have been resolved within a few weeks. However, the American Television Alliance (ATVA), a grouping of pay TV distributors, says there are now a record 79 U.S. markets being affected by blackouts. Besides the Time Warner Cable dispute with CBS, starting on Thursday some Dish Network Corp. subscribers lost access to some ABC, NBC and Fox affiliate stations owned by Raycom Media Inc. in 36 markets in 15 states from Florida to Hawaii. Tens of thousands of DirecTV subscribers lost access to a local CBS station in Odessa, Texas, on Thursday. Five other blackouts are ongoing, including one between Cox Communications and Mt. Baker Cable in Seattle that has lingered since Jan. 1, 2012, according to the ATVA.


79-year-old guilty of sexual assaults of boy BELMONT — A 79-year-old man pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault for sexual contact with a boy who was under 13-years-old at the time. On July 23, George Webber, 79, of 8 Bean Hill Road was sentenced to serve 12 months in the Belknap County House of Corrections with six of them to be served in home confinement on one count and 10 years — all suspended — in the N.H. State Prison on the other count. He was ordered to pay $4,600 to his victim for counseling services. Webber is also ordered to register as a sex offender, to be on probation for two years after his release, to have no unsupervised contact with minors, to stay away from the victim, and to get

counseling and treatment. Indicted in March of 2013, Webber initially faced six counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault. Four charges were not prosecuted in exchange for his guilty plea to two of them last week. Paperwork from the Belknap County Superior Court shows the assaults took place in 2000. The victim and his father no longer live in the area. The case was investigated by the Belmont Police. The victim’s father, who will not be identified, said he wanted to thank the Belmont Police Department and the Belknap County Attorney for the lengthy investigation. “This chapter of our lives is behind us,” he said. — Gail Ober

HYDROPONIC from page 3 stores in shopping malls all up and down the East Coast and realized shortly after they bought the land in Barnstead that something new was in order for him and his young family. Both he and his wife were intrigued with the idea of raising their family on a self-sufficient farm and put their shoulders to the wheel to achieve it. Barbara home schools their two children and handles the business end of the farming operations. Using his skills as a builder. Comtois built the family home and two green houses for their produce business, followed by a farm stand where they could sell their vegetables. Then he put up shelters and run-ins for their animals, which included rabbits, which provide lean high protein meat, as well as Belted Galloway cattle, a sturdy breed which can handle New Hampshire winters. There are also chickens, who live in a portable roost which goes from one pasture to another so that they can live off the land while eating the worms and bugs that feed in the nutrient-rich soil left by the livestock. There’s also a pond filled with ducks, which will supply food at local restau-

rants. Two Belgian draft horses are used for plowing and pulling the hay wagon and also provide hay rides in the fall and sleigh rides in the winter for visitors to the farm. The vegetables grown at their greenhouses include basil, beets, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, chard, collards, cucumbers, eggplant, head lettuce, kale, leeks, radishes, spinach, summer squash, tomatoes, watermelons and winter squash. The farm grow raspberries, garlic, and asparagus using conventional methods and is also experimenting with fruit trees. Comtois is also a skilled rock cutter who has developed rock sculptures which can be seen at many resorts and private homes in New England. He says that he sees a bright future for small farmers in New Hampshire, especially with the eat local mantra which has developed in recent years. A two-term member of the New Hampshire House, Comtois serves on the House Environmental and Agriculture committee, the Republican says he works on behalf of legislation which will help small farmers.

3 shot dead at Pennsylvania town meeting SAYLORSBURG, PA (AP) — A gunman blasted shots through the wall of a Pennsylvania municipal building during a meeting on Monday and then barged into the meeting room and continued firing, killing three people, before he was tackled by a local official and shot with his own gun, a witness said. The shooting, which injured at least two other people, happened shortly before 7:30 p.m. during Ross Township’s monthly meeting, Monroe County emergency management director Guy Miller said. The gunman, who appeared to be “shooting randomly,” was captured and was treated at a hospital, which was placed on lockdown, he said. The shooter later was released into police custody, the hospital said. State police in Lehighton confirmed the three deaths and said the gunman had an ongoing dispute with township officials over the possible condemnation of his property. They said about 15 to 18 residents and town officials were at the meeting when the gunfire erupted. The Pocono Record said one of its reporters was in the township building and a gunman armed with a pistol with a scope shot through a wall into the meeting, in a rural area of northeastern Pennsylvania about 85 miles north of Philadelphia. The reporter, Chris Reber, told the newspaper that all he saw was holes go through the wall, with smoke and plaster blowing out. He said he heard automatic gunfire. “I ran out after the first round of shooting. I dropped to the floor. That’s what everyone did. ...

Then it stopped and I crawled out the side door,” Reber told the newspaper, which posted his account online. “I was the only person who crawled out. Everyone got behind a table. Some of the supervisors were over on the side throwing up.” Reber said a woman opened a door to the meeting room “and he (the shooter) was standing there. A man pushed her aside and was shot. People were shot inside the room.” The shooter returned to his car and came back inside with another weapon when a local official at the meeting grabbed him, Reber said. “(West End Open Space Commission executive director) Bernie Kozen was there tending to the man and he (the shooter) didn’t see them,” Reber said. “Bernie bearhugged him and took him down. He shot (the shooter) with his own gun.” Rep. Matt Cartwright, who represents the state’s 17th District, said he was “stunned and appalled at the atrocities that claimed the lives of innocent citizens in Ross Township.” He said he had heard about what Kozen did to prevent more bloodshed. “Mr. Kozen is a true hero tonight,” Cartwright said in an emailed statement. Kozen’s wife, reached by telephone at their home Monday night, said he wasn’t there and she was unsure when he’d be back. Ross Township has about 5,500 residents. According to its website, the board of supervisors meets at 7 p.m. on the first Monday of each month.

Losers of 7 in a row, Muskrats season ends in Maine LACONIA — The Muskrats season ended Saturday night in Sanford, Maine, where Laconia was beaten 4-2 in a play-in game to determine the fourth and final representative of the NECLB’s Eastern Division playoffs. Laconia and the Mainers had ended the regular season with identical 21-23 records. With a roster depleted by late-season injuries, the Muskrats lost their last seven games, enabling San-

ford to get in the hunt. Sanford advanced to a first-round playoff series with defending league champion Newport and the Mainers were taken out in two games. Newport starts a best of three series with Mystic on Wednesday to determine the Eastern Division champion. Vermont has already advanced to the Western Division final and will play the winner of the KeeneHolyoke series that is tied at one game each.

Children’s musician performing at Rotary Park tomorrow LACONIA — On Wednesday, August 7, Wayne From Maine will bring his uplifting and fun music to the Belknap Mill’s Outdoor Concert Series in Rotary Park. The concert starts at 6:30 p.m. The Wayne From Maine concert is sponsored by the Belknap County Early Childhood Council with further support from WEMJ. The concert is the next in a series that are being presented by the Belknap Mill this summer for the public. All concerts are free and held in Rotary Park on Beacon St. East next to the Belknap Mill.

Sanbornton church film series features Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet SANBORNTON — The Sanbornton Congregational Church – UCC, in partnership with the Sanbornton Town Library, is sponsoring a Film Series held on the first Wednesday of every month at the library. Show time will be 6:30-8:30 p.m. on the second floor of the library. The seventh film, to be shown on August 7, will be “Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet” ( 2002-120 minute documentary). This is the story of a seventh century prophet who changed world history in 23 years, and continues to shape the lives of more than 1.2 billion people. The film creates a detailed and intimate portrait of Muhammad, the man

and the prophet. It takes viewers not only to ancient Middle Eastern sites where Muhammad’s story unfolded, but into the homes, mosques and workplaces of some of America’s seven million Muslims to discover the many ways in which they follow Muhammad’s example. The enlightening documentary is a well-researched reminder that Islam is about peace, love and the acceptance of other people’s beliefs - the same tenets as those in Christianity and Judaism. For further information call 2863018 or visit the web site at uccsanbornton.org. Or call the Sanbornton Public Library at 286-8288

Internationally-known Jimmy Keys at Franklin Opera House Friday night FRANKLIN — Jimmy Keys, internationally known pianist and comedian, will perform at the Franklin Opera House on Friday, August 9 at 7:30 p.m. Jimmy Keys was born in Kent, England and as a young child he studied classical piano. At the age of twelve Jimmy started playing in school bands. He soon graduated to the local music scene, working in clubs and pubs with numerous pop, soul and rock groups, singing and playing keyboards. Later, he “went professional” and headed off to Germany with a local group, to seek fame and fortune following after dozens of other postBeatle bands! In the early 70’s he went on to work with many top artists including Ben E. King, Eddie Floyd and Percy Sledge. Later, with his own band, he worked extensively throughout Europe and the Middle East. In 1981 he decided to return to his first love, the piano, and become a

solo entertainer. Since then he has developed a very unique and highly entertaining comedy and musical act. He’s a cross between Elton John (in that he sings and plays the piano) and Robin Williams (in that his comedy is off-the-wall). His show is packed with comedy, impressions and favorite Broadway songs, wrapped around some of the most exciting piano playing and audience participation that you will ever witness. Good seats are never a problem at the historic Franklin Opera House, an intimate, 300 seat theater located in downtown Franklin, in the City Hall building. There are no obstructed view seats in either the orchestra section or in the balcony, and ample free parking all around. Tickets for Jimmy Keys are now on sale at www.franklinoperahouse.org, byvisiting the box office Mon-Fri 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. or by calling 934-1901. Reserved tickets are priced at $20 each.

A painting by B. Millner

Two artists to discuss their work Wednesday at Sandwich gallery CENTER SANDWICH — Kathi Smith and B Millner will each be speaking about their solo exhibits of their paintings at Patricia Ladd Carega Gallery on Wednesday, August 7. Smith, originally from Maine, lives in Holderness and is an adjunct faculty member at Plymouth State University. Millner spends his summers in Maine but also visits Squam Lake each August. Millner’s work is inspired by the play of light includes a variety of abandoned structures found around New England. Both a sculptor and a painter, Millner’s realism is precise. The contrast of his exceptional detail to flat cloudless skies is both captivating and engaging.

Smith thrives on “making order out of complicated spaces’ which almost always include a part of a house, a view from a window, or sideporch as seen through a thicket of branches. Her surfaces are about texture. The canvases are worked and worked again, scratched, scraped and rubbed. Rich color and marks complete the process. The result is an intimate and refreshing approach to landscape. Patricia Ladd Carega Gallery is located at 69 Maple Street in Center Sandwich. Gallery hours are from 10 to 5 Monday through Saturday and 12 to 5 on Sunday. For more information visit patricialaddcarega.com or call 284 7728.

Do You Need Antibiotics Before Your Dental Visit? The American Heart Association recommends following their guidelines for the prescription of antibiotic pre-medication before certain dental procedures. Conditions such as heart murmur, rheumatic fever, and certain congenital heart conditions no longer require premedication. However, certain heart conditions still warrant the use of antibiotics such as artificial valves or a prior history of infective endocarditis. Some patients with other medical conditions are also advised to take the antibiotics prior to dental care. For example, if you have had a total joint replacement surgery, then you are at risk of developing infections at the site of the prosthesis. Therefore, antibiotic premedication will be necessary before your dental visits following that joint surgery. The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons used to recommend pre-med for at least two years following surgery; however, those guidelines were changed in fall 2009. It is now recommended that total joint replacement patients always continue to take medication prior to dental appointments. You should ask your orthopedic doctor what he or she recommends for you. Make sure you inform your dental office about any new medical conditions or changes in your health so your dentist can help you manage these risks successfully. George T.

Author event Saturday at Annie’s Book Stop LACONIA — Annie’s Book Stop will host a “Meet the author” special event on Saturday, August 10 at 10 a.m. featuring James Novak, author of Ora’s Boy, and Catherine Dougherty, author of In Woolen Bikinis. James Novak grew up in Laconia and upon graduating from high school, enlisted in the United States Air Force. While in the Air Force, he attended college at night and eventually earned dual degrees in Business Administration and Economics. He graduated magna-cum-laude from Park College in 1970 and earned his Master’s degree in Public Administration from the University of Oklahoma in 1977. He has traveled extensively all over the world and currently resides with his wife in Bluffton, South Carolina. James has recently acquired a summer home here in the Lakes Region. Ora’s Boy is the true narrative of Sonny Virgin’s (a.k.a. Cousy) struggles to survive growing up in Laconia in the 1940s and 1950s. Abandoned by his father and rejected by his mother, Sonny, together with sisters Lorraine and Claudie, searched for love and approval. A remarkably endearing story, Ora’s Boy is made more memorable with its backdrop of

historical events and changes that happened during the era—World War II, the Korean War, the famous Boston Brinks robbery, Civil Rights Movement, and the advent of Rock N’ Roll. Catherine Dougherty, a native of New Hampshire, lives with her husband in the Lakes Region area, near Lake Winnipesaukee. She is a member of the New Hampshire Writers Project and currently serves as social media chair for the Greater Lakes Region Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Her debut novel in Polyester Pajamas, the first book in the Jean and Rosie series, was released in June 2012. She has also published several essays and poems, and is a featured author in the 20122013 publication 50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading presented by TheAuthorsShow.com. In Woolen Bikinis , released on July 5, 2013, is an engaging story about the unpredictable twists and turns that can happen in any woman’s life, as well as a strong friendship, one Jean and Rosie are fortunate to have, that can help carry one through. It’s also about Simple Pleasures, plenty of them (like woolen bikinis).

You’ve got to ask yourself one question: ‘Do I feel LUCKY?’

‘Meet the Quilters’ on Wednesday On a snowy day last January, a handful of quilters came to a “Meet the Quilters” program at the Country Village Quilt Guild meeting in Moultonborough. It was discovered that one was a yodeler, one worked on a fishing boat, one met her husband as a wrong number, and many other stories brought lots of humor to the meeting! The program will be repeated in better weather on August 7 at 1:30 p.m. in the Moultonborough Life Safety Building. All are invited to share tidbits about themselves and show a talent or interest that is not quilt related. (Courtesy photo)

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Today’s luck centers on your emotional life. You’ll experience improvements not only in how you are feeling, but also in how you are processing and acting on those feelings. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Those who aren’t ready for change will dig in their heels. Maybe they secretly want to see how powerful you are. Will you take them for a ride even though they fight you the whole way? PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If you swallow your opinions and don’t stand up for yourself, eventually you’ll spout off in the manner of Mount Vesuvius. So speaking up along the way is actually the kindest way to interact with others. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 6). Your birthday may be low-key, but it’s magical nonetheless. Loved ones will shower you with positivity and support. Let nothing distract you from putting dreams into action over the next four weeks. Financial prospects are hot in October. November brings an easy win. Physical improvements amp up your attraction quotient in 2014. Virgo and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 2, 18, 4 and 17. Today’s Birthdays: Jazz musician Charlie Haden is 76. Actor-director Peter Bonerz is 75. Actress Louise Sorel is 73. Actor Michael Anderson Jr. is 70. Actor Dorian Harewood is 63. Actress Catherine Hicks is 62. Rock singer Pat MacDonald is 61. Actress Stepfanie Kramer is 57. Actress Faith Prince is 56. Rhythmand-blues singer Randy DeBarge is 55. Actor Leland Orser is 53. Country singers Peggy and Patsy Lynn are 49. Actor Jeremy Ratchford is 48. Country singer Lisa Stewart is 45. Actress Merrin Dungey is 42. Singer Geri Halliwell is 41. Actor Jason O’Mara is 41. Singeractor David Campbell is 40. Actress Vera Farmiga is 40. Actress Ever Carradine is 39. Actress Soleil Moon Frye is 37. Actress Melissa George is 37. Rock singer Travis McCoy is 32.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The people who bring you joy and the people who bring you stress are one and the same now. The effort you put into making relationships good is a big part of what endears you to others. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Unexpected encounters have more of a charge to them than the expected ones. That’s why it’s worth it to come up with a few surprises, especially if you’re meeting familiar people. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If it seems like a relationship is changing and perhaps growing a bit more distant, that’s because it is. It’s for the better. You’ll be closer in the end for having this momentary luxury of personal space. CANCER (June 22-July 22). There may be a few instances in which you feel comfortable enough to let someone lead you through dangerous territory. Just be careful not to assume a false sense of security in this situation. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You have a dynamic presence, and you’ll shine in the right moment. But don’t try to shine all of the time. It only attracts too much attention, and you won’t know what to do with it all. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Defending your space is important, but if that’s all you do, you’ll have too narrow of a life. Letting people infringe on you a bit may be just the thing that’s needed to break open a new adventure. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You don’t have to talk to communicate. In fact, you cannot not communicate. The very way you animate your body is a message. Your awareness in this regard makes you most effective today. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You want to be assertive but not dominating. You’ll walk a narrow line with this today. Stay aware of the feedback others give you, and you’ll remain in good graces. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). As you express your honest feelings and needs, you may remember a time when you didn’t feel at liberty to do so. You no longer have a reason to take the submissive role, and this is something to celebrate.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Tuesday, Aug. 6, the 218th day of 2013. There are 147 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On August 6, 1945, during World War II, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan, resulting in an estimated 140,000 deaths. On this date: In 1813, during the Venezuelan War of Independence, forces led by Simon Bolivar recaptured Caracas. In 1825, Upper Peru became the autonomous republic of Bolivia. In 1862, the Confederate ironclad CSS Arkansas was scuttled by its crew on the Mississippi River near Baton Rouge, La., to prevent capture by the Union. In 1926, Gertrude Ederle became the first woman to swim the English Channel, arriving in Kingsdown, England, from France in 14½ hours. In 1930, New York State Supreme Court Justice Joseph Force Crater went missing after leaving a Manhattan restaurant; his disappearance remains a mystery. In 1942, Queen Wilhemina of the Netherlands became the first reigning queen to address a joint session of Congress, telling lawmakers that despite Nazi occupation, her people’s motto remained, “No surrender.” In 1961, Soviet cosmonaut Gherman Titov became the second man to orbit Earth as he flew aboard Vostok 2. In 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act. In 1973, former Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista, 72, died in exile in Spain. Entertainer Stevie Wonder was seriously injured in a car accident in North Carolina. In 1978, Pope Paul VI died at Castel Gandolfo at age 80. In 1988, an attempt by New York City police to enforce a curfew in Tompkins Square Park triggered a melee that left 52 people injured and led to the filing of more than 110 claims of police brutality. In 1993, Louis Freeh won Senate confi rmation to be FBI director. Ten years ago: Actor Arnold Schwarzenegger used an appearance on NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” to announce his successful bid to replace California Gov. Gray Davis. The same day, Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante (boost-ahMAHN’-tay) said he was entering the recall race as well. Five years ago: The government declared that Army scientist Bruce Ivins was solely responsible for the anthrax attacks that killed five and rattled the nation in 2001. (Ivins had committed suicide on July 29.) President George W. Bush, on his Asia tour, met with South Korean President Lee Myung-bak; Bush then traveled to Thailand, where he met with Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej (sah-MAK’ sun-TAH’-rah-ved). One year ago: Syria’s prime minister, Riad Hijab, defected two months after being forced into the position by President Bashar Assad. Marvin Hamlisch, 68, who composed or arranged the scores for dozens of movies including “The Sting” and the Broadway smash “A Chorus Line,” died in Los Angeles. Art critic and historian Robert Hughes, 74, died in New York.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, August 6, 2013— Page 25

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Dear Annie: Recently, our beautiful, intelligent, kind, responsible 20-year-old daughter told us she is a lesbian. “Sharon” has been sorting this out alone for the past two years, which breaks my heart. She told us that she has prayed not to be this way, tried dating men and even came up with a plan to move out of the country. Sharon’s father, siblings and I were surprised, but have assured her that we are thankful she told us so she can truly be herself and be happy. We love her just the same. However, Sharon has not told the rest of our family. Other relatives have made it clear that they believe gays and lesbians are disturbed and disgusting individuals who are going to hell. They have, in fact, recently stated these vile opinions to Sharon when she was last visiting. She told me it felt as if she had been punched in the stomach. Ironically, Sharon’s grandparents think the sun rises and sets on her. They have no idea that their divisive, hateful, dehumanizing comments apply to someone they cherish. Sharon loves her grandparents, aunts and uncles and is terrified of how they will respond when they find out. We worry that their rejection will push her back into depression. According to PFLAG, suicide is the leading cause of death among gay and lesbian youth. More than 30 percent of all reported teen suicides each year are committed by gay and lesbian youth. Fifty percent report that their parents reject them due to their sexual orientation, and 26 percent are forced to leave home because of conflicts over their sexual orientation. These are the children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews we love. We will stand with Sharon and pray for the judgmental, ignorant, bigoted souls to find enlightenment on this issue. -- Worried in Wyoming Dear Worried: Thank you for your compassionate understanding. Sharon does not need to come out to her relatives

any sooner than she is comfortable, and it helps enormously that you are so supportive. In many instances, families become more accepting when they realize the gay person is someone they know and love. We hope that is how it works out for your family. Dear Annie: My band performs at a lot of wedding receptions. We usually make plans with the family regarding what music they want. We cannot alter our music in the middle of a set just because a guest who has had too much to drink comes up to us with a song request. If the bride and groom took the time to specify the songs they do and don’t want to hear, they probably are not going to be happy if we suddenly start playing “The Chicken Dance.” One other tip: Talking to us while we are in the middle of a song is not a good idea. Please wait until we are on a break. -- Frustrated Bandleader Dear Frustrated: Excellent suggestions, and here’s one from us: Can you please not set the amplifiers to 11? We can hear you just fine without going deaf. Dear Annie: I read the thoughtful letter from “Concerned Grandma,” who is caring for her biracial 4-year-old grandson. Your response left out one of the best role models this child could have: President Barack Obama. Perhaps reading “Dreams from My Father” will give this dear grandmother more insight into the struggles her grandson might face as a fatherless child, as well as hope and inspiration. A photo of our biracial president might be a sweet thing for this little boy to have. In addition, the grandmother might want to seek out someone who can help reinforce and strengthen her as she stands alongside this child in a lifelong learning adventure. -- A Daily Reader

A-ROD from page 2 50-game penalties before they were announced, giving them a chance to return for the playoffs. Ryan Braun’s 65-game suspension last month and previous penalties bring to 18 the total number of players sanctioned for their connection with Biogenesis. At the center of it all was Rodriguez, once the greatest player of his time, reduced Monday night to saying that he was humbled, at 38, just to “have the opportunity to put on this uniform again” and adding if he

didn’t fight for his career, no one else would. A-Rod’s drug penalty was for “his use and possession of numerous forms of prohibited performanceenhancing substances, including testosterone and human growth hormone over the course of multiple years,” MLB said. His punishment under the labor contract was “for attempting to cover up his violations of the program by engaging in a course of conduct intended to obstruct and frustrate the office of the commis-

STATION from page one nity to bid on it. “It’s our right to choose or refuse,” said Beaudin. No dollar figure was discussed last night. Beaudin said the communication was not a bid but an indication that the owners of the marina may be interested in purchasing the property from the town. The property is on Sunset Drive and is directly opposite the marina. It is landlocked. The now volunteer Winnisquam Fire Company was disbanded in 2006 and 2007 and, despite occasional but regular interest from residents of the Lochmere section of Tilton and the lakefront area of Sanbornton, the Belmont selectmen have said they have no interest in reusing the property as a fire station. One half of the building is now home to the Belmont Department of Parks and Recreation and one half is used by the Belmont Fire Department for storage. Beaudin said the Parks Department is preparing to relocate to the Belmont Mill and said last night there are a few things the town needs to do to the historic mill before the department can move. A study prepared by a specially-convened Belmont Property Assessment Committee said the Winnisquam station was originally built in 1940 and has

seen a number of additions and renovations. When the current Belmont Fire Station opened in 1995, there was some discussion about relocating the Police Department there, however in 2000 police added 1,250-square-feet to the existing station. The committee looked at all town property except the library, the police department, and the current fire station on Route 140. The report said the walls of the station show signs of decay or “carbonation”, some of the mortar joints around the building are beginning to looses and the metal doors are beginning to rust. The roof needs to be re-shingled and the low-sloped roof over the kitchen needs to be completely rebuilt. The committee said the interior of the building is in fair condition and the combustion chamber on the furnace is cracked. “With the current condition of the Winnisquam Fire Station the Property Assessment Committee feels there is greater value in selling the building than there is repairing it,” reads the recommendation. If Winnisquam Marine is interested enough to make an offer on the property, Beaudin said it would be evaluated and placed on a warrant article at a future Town Meeting for a vote. — Gail Ober

sioner’s investigation.” In Chicago, Rodriguez wouldn’t deny using PEDs, saying “when the time is right, there will be an opportunity to do all of that. I don’t think that time is right now.” He added: “It’s been the toughest fight of my life. By any means, am I out of the woods? This is probably just phase two just starting. It’s not going to get easier. It’s probably going to get harder.” Rodriguez admitted four years ago that he used PEDs while with Texas from 2001-03 but has repeatedly denied using them since. “I am disappointed with the penalty and intend to appeal and fight this through the process. I am eager to get back on the field and be with my teammates in Chicago tonight,” Rodriguez said in a statement. Yankees manager Joe Girardi, minutes after losing captain Derek Jeter for the third time this year, was ready to welcome A-Rod back. “I’m not here to judge people. It’s not my job,” Girardi said. “He’s a player as long as he’s in our clubhouse.” Girardi called the suspensions “another black eye for us, but we’re trying to clean this game up.” The suspensions are thought to be the most at once for off-field conduct since 1921, when Commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis banned eight Chicago White Sox players for life for throwing the 1919 World Series against Cincinnati: Shoeless Joe Jackson, Eddie Cicotte, Happy Felsh, Chick Gandil, Fred McMullen, Charles “Swede” Risberg, Buck Weaver and Claude “Lefty” Williams. They had been suspended by the team the previous year and were penalized by baseball even though they had been acquitted of criminal charges. As for the modern-day All-Stars, Cruz, an outfielder, leads Texas in RBIs and Peralta has been a top hitter and shortstop for Detroit, a pair of teams in the midst of pennant races.
