Laconia’s clear choice for mayor: Ed Engler newspaper editor & president wins 74.1% of votes; bownes, Hamel & bolduc elected to council By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA —In yesterday’s election, Ed Engler topped Kailief Mitchell by a wide margin to win the race for mayor while Armand Bolduc staved off a challenge from Tony Felch in Ward 6 to earn his 16th consecutive term on the City Council, incumbent councilor Bob Hamel prevailed over Tom Tardif in Ward 5 and David Bownes
bested Richard Beaudoin in Ward 2 to capture the only open council seat. Incumbent city councilors Ava Doyle (Ward 1), Henry Lipman (Ward 3) and Brenda Baer (Ward 4) ran unopposed. Engler, the president and editor of the Laconia Daily Sun, polled three of every four votes cast in besting Mitchell, an academic assistant at the Spaudling Youth Center, 1,155 to 403. Engler carried Wards
1, 2, 3, 4 and 6 by 100 or more votes while Mitchell ran closest in Ward 5, where he has served as moderator for the past seven years, narrowing the margin to 114 to 82 . When the votes were tallied Engler said that he was not surprised by the result. “In the last week or so I felt pretty good about the situation,” he remarked. He said that in local elections that are not overshadowed by see eLeCTIOn page 6

This needs to be done and done as soon as possible,’’ said Alida Millham of Gilford, a former chairman of the Belknap County Delegation who came aboard only recently as a member of the committee.
She said that the overcrowded conditions at the jail and the cost of outsourcing prisoners to other facilities around the state made prompt action imperative.

TORONTO (AP) — Toronto Mayor Rob Ford acknowledged for the first time Tuesday that he smoked crack “probably a year ago” when he was in a “drunken stupor,” but he refused to resign despite immense pressure to step aside as leader of Canada’s largest city. Ford said he loves his job and “for the sake of the taxpayers, we must get back to work immediately.” Allegations that the mayor had been caught on video smoking crack surfaced in news reports in May. Ford initially insisted the video did not exist, sidestepped questions about whether he had ever used crack and rebuffed growing calls to leave office. The mayor was forced to backtrack last week after police said they had obtained a copy of the video in the course of a drug investigation against a friend of Ford’s. see FORD page 11
NH Supreme Court to rule on death penalty in 2008 cop killing
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — For the first time in more than half a century, New Hampshire’s Supreme Court on Wednesday will rule on the constitutionality of the state’s death penalty and whether the death sentence of a man convicted of killing a police officer will stand. The court will release its ruling in the appeal of Michael Addison, who was sentenced to death in 2008 for gunning down Manchester Police Officer Michael Briggs two years earlier as the officer was trying to arrest him in connection with a string of violent robberies. Addison is the only inmate on New Hampshire’s death row. Besides the issues Addison’s lawyers
raised on appeal a year ago, the court will also review the fairness of his death sentence — comparing it to cases in other states in which a police officer was killed in the line of duty. If the court vacates Addison’s death sentence, prosecutors would be barred from seeking the death penalty again. If it upholds the death sentence, Addison could become the first person executed in New Hampshire since 1939. Addison’s lawyer, David Rothstein, argued that holding the trial in Manchester — in a courthouse 100 yards from police headquarters — injected passion and prejudice into the case. Prosecutors countered
Mall shooting puzzles friends & relatives of gunman
TEANECK, N.J. (AP) — Relatives and friends of a young man who fired shots in New Jersey’s largest mall, trapping terrified shoppers for hours before killing himself, struggled Tuesday to reconcile those actions with a person they described as pleasant and well-liked. Investigators don’t believe the gunman, identified as 20-year-old Richard Shoop, intended to shoot anyone when he began firing at the ceiling
and elsewhere at the Garden State Plaza in Paramus, about 15 miles northwest of New York City, shortly before the mall closed Monday night. There were no other injuries. “We think he went in with the intent that he was not going to come out alive,” Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli said. News of Shoop’s suicide stunned friends and relatives. As recently as last week, Shoop had spoken about a potensee SHOOP page 9

that both sides worked to guarantee a fair trial and that jurors certified their verdict was not influenced by arbitrary factors. The ruling comes as the New Hampshire Coalition Against the Death Penalty is launching a new campaign to repeal the death penalty. Gov. Maggie Hassan has said she would sign a repeal bill if it did not invalidate Addison’s sentence. Briggs, 35, was 15 minutes from the end of his shift on Oct. 16, 2006, when he and his partner — both on bicycle patrol — confronted Addison in a dark alley. Jurors found that Addison shot Briggs in the head at close range to avoid arrest. see ADDISON page 10

Why should Germany listen to ‘globalists’? Chutzpah. I believe that’s the word for it. Just days after learning the Americans have been tapping her phones and taping her conversations, Angela Merkel has been publicly upbraided by the U.S. Treasury for being a bad global citizen. What did she do to deserve this? Merkel just won a third term as chancellor with a record vote and has an approval rating near 80 percent. But she is a bad global citizen because Germany is running the world’s largest trade surplus. The Washington Post thinks the Treasury’s tongue-lashing is overdue, as does Paul Krugman of the New York Times: “In this environment, a country that runs a trade surplus is ... beggaring its neighbors. It is diverting spending away from their goods and services to its own, and thereby taking away jobs.” Is this not astonishing? Competing successfully in world markets is now tantamount to stealing food off the table of one’s less-competent and less-successful neighbors. By this standard, America was a selfish nation and a rotten global citizen for the first seven decades of the 20th century, when we ran trade surpluses every year, averaging 4 percent of GDP. From the Civil War through the Roaring ‘20s, with a high tariff, we became the mightiest manufacturing power the world had ever seen. Our economic independence enabled us to stay out of two world wars. And when we did go in, we won within months in 1918, and we won again only a few years after Pearl Harbor. Is this a record to be ashamed of? Every modern nation that has risen to world power has done so through economic nationalism: Britain under the Acts of Navigation; the United States under protectionist Republicans from 1860-1914; Bismarck’s Germany; postwar Japan, which rose from the ashes of 1945 to become the world’s second economy; and China from 1980 to today. Trade surpluses, run at the expense of rival powers, have been the hallmark of great nations in their rise to preeminence. Though Germany is smaller than Montana, with a population not a fourth that of the United States, she is the powerhouse of the European Union, makes some of the finest products on earth, and sells abroad one-third of all she produces. Her unemployment rate is only 5 percent. Why is that not a record to be admired? And whom are the Germans supposed to emulate? Answer, if you can believe it, Obama’s America. The Post and Krugman feel the Germans must shake off their habit of working and saving and start spending to get Club Med countries like Spain and Greece out of intensive care. The Post wants Merkel to
embrace the Social Democrats’ idea of raising the minimum wage to $11.50 an hour, which was too rich even for the mayor of D.C. The need, says Treasury, is for “rebalancing.” Basically, what the globalists want is for prudent counties with trade surpluses to start running deficits to get money flowing, like transfusions, into the moribund economies. Where as “Engine Charlie” Wilson reportedly said, “What’s good for General Motors is good for the country,” the globalists retort, “What’s good for the global economy is good for America.” But is this true? From their behavior in recent decades, neither the Chinese nor Japanese nor Germans, proprietors of the second, third and fourth largest economies on earth, buy into this ideology. And how has America’s conversion to globalism, since George H.W. Bush proclaimed the coming of the New World Order, worked out for us? From 1989 to 1993, Bush 1 ran $360 billion in trade deficits in goods, a U.S. record. Bill Clinton, who enlisted the Republican establishment to help ratify NAFTA and U.S. membership in a World Trade Organization where the United States has the same vote as Armenia, ran $1.8 trillion in trade deficits. Clinton’s deficits were then dwarfed by George W. Bush’s, who ran up $5.3 trillion in trade deficits in goods. In four years and eight months, Obama has piled up trade deficits totaling more than $3 trillion. Thus, during 25 years of freetrade globalism, the United States has run up well over 10 trillion, or ten thousand-billion, dollars in trade deficits in goods. And what do we have to show for it? Our economic independence is history. We rely on foreigners for the necessities of life. We are the greatest debtor nation in history. Beijing and Tokyo bank scores of billions in annual interest payments on the T-bills and Treasury bonds they hold. And as the gleaming cities of Asia rise, America’s infrastructure visibly crumbles. The real wages of our working men and women have not risen in decades. In the first decade of this century, we lost 6 million manufacturing jobs as 55,000 factories disappeared. Why should successful Germans emulate the folly of the failed American politicians responsible for the decline of the greatest republic in the history of mankind? (Syndicated columnist Pat Buchanan has been a senior advisor to three presidents, twice a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination and the presidential nominee of the Reform Party in 2000. He won the New Hampshire Republican Primary in 1996.)
LETTERS We are meeting to catalogue possible solutions to jail issues To The Daily Sun, We are a group of concerned citizens consisting of three Belknap County representatives and two private citizens that has been meeting in an effort to catalogue possible solutions to the issues surrounding the county jail. We are Bob Greemore, Mike Sylvia and Dick Burchell, delegates to the Convention, and two local businessmen, Dave DeVoy of Sanbornton and George Hurt of Gilford, who are private citizens who are knowledgeable about the jail. All of us are concerned that overcrowding be eased, that substandard mechanical systems be improved and that the beneficial programming now in place be expanded as room to do so is made available. Each of the ad hoc members of this committee has his own favored solution but this letter is not meant to advocate one position over another. The members are concerned that time has passed since deficiencies at the jail were identified and that, despite the investment of several hundred thousand dollars in analysis and planning, the Belknap Commission seems stymied by the almost universal disapproval of the plan presented by Ricci Greene. That plan, at an estimated cost of $42.5 million, is simply unaffordable and has won almost no support. Should we languish with the current situation because we are not able to afford everything that may be desirable? We think that the most evident shortcomings of the jail may be mitigated by one or more of the following options. We hope that this is the beginning of a public forum where all are encouraged to present their opinions and concerns. Each option will have strengths and weaknesses and these, together with associated costs, will need to be weighed. We would be remiss if we did not mention that Chapter 30 of State law, section B:12, specifies that twice a year the commissioners are to inspect
the prison and to then file a report with the Attorney General within 30 days. This has been done only twice in recent years, once in 2009 when conditions were described as satisfactory and once in 2013 when conditions were described as dire. Commissioner Philpot was central to both reports since he was vice chair in each case. It seems a fair question to ask him “what happened?” and we look forward to his answer. Option 1: A free standing pod which likely would be a temporary answer to resolve the issue of substandard accommodations for women; 2: A plan previously presented for expansion to the rear of the existing jail in the area near where the sheds now stand. This plan should be located and examined as to its practicability; 3: A women’s wing which would be contiguous with, but not attached to, the existing facility. Presumably, a fenced exercise yard could be located between the current facility and the new wing; 4: Relocation of existing executive and administrative office space to rental space until a less expensive wood frame building can be erected to house the commissioners and county staff. The women’s quarters and program rooms could fit within this very expensive space; 5: Temporary relocation of the women to a building which, at least prospectively, could be leased from the state and located at the site of the former state school. The county needs to evaluate the growth in its jail population as well as the various possible means of contending with that growth. We hope that this document can serve as a springboard that assists in that evaluation. Rep. Bob Greemore, Meredith Rep. Mike Sylvia, Belmont Rep. Dick Burchell, Gilmanton Dave DeVoy, Sanbornton George Hurt, Gilford

LETTERS Obamacare will make things be more equal for all Americans To The Daily Sun, Just read your letter, Mr. Boutin, and all I read was the same Fox News talking points. Insurance companies, for too many years, have had the pleasure of dropping people who are very ill, denying coverage to people (even kids) with pre-existing conditions, increasing their rates every year to make more profits while cutting benefits, upping maximum annual pay outs for conditions, even cancer. You just do not seem to get it. They now cannot do this stuff so old policies which don’t meet new standards under the Affordable Care Act have been discontinued. Some deductibles also went up and some benefits were cut out just so they could make a profit. See things will now be more equal for all people in the USA and people will all have access to health care. As to an increase in rates. Give me a break. Rates increased every year in the past. That was a given. I worked with people who got raises just to see them complain because their health insurance rates went up using up their raises. And complaining because some benefits they had the year before were cut out and no longer covered. Also companies that provided health insurance for their employees, to save money, worked with the insurance companies to cut stuff out so the premiums they paid on behalf of their employees stayed low. As to people who are having their policies of last year canceled the fact is that those policies do not follow current regulations for what they offer. These people will be able to get better coverage for less premium dollars. Insurance companies are the ones canceling the policies because it is more expensive for them to do what is necessary to comply
with the current regulations. They do not want to loose profits and will get rid of these rather then adjust them to meet the standards just to keep the cost down so they make money. This is an example of what power the insurance companies have had for so many years. Might I suggest you start paying attention to what is actually being said by the doctors, hospitals and other people involved with this new insurance act. I just had major surgery and my bills to date are over $180,000. One ambulance ride for a total of five miles cost me over $3,000. I’m lucky because I have insurance. If not I still would have gotten the care but you and others with insurance would be paying my bill. NO BILL GOES UNPAID. Hospitals,labs and doctors have to up their rates to make up for any loses due to unpaid bills so the ones with insurance doing the paying. People go to the ER all the time to get care because they have no insurance. They agree to make monthly payments problem is most times they can’t. So these bills go unpaid. So if everyone has some sort of insurance hospital, lab and doctor costs will stabilize and possibly go down. How is that a bad thing. I’ll end this with one question because I have been reading your letters for years now and you certainly have a hate for President Obama. Why? Would you like him better if he were white or Republican? And yes, before you say it, race is a very important factor in all of this and has been since the day he announced he was running. People know this but they will never admit it because no one wants to admit they have racist attitudes, especially in 2013. Nancy Parsons Laconia

Woman who pleaded guilty to selling heroin that resulted in fatal overdose asks for new trial By Gail OBer
LACONIA — A woman who is serving a 15- to 30-year sentence for her role in supplying a 22-year-old woman with the heroin that killed her is petitioning the court for a new trial. A hearing on the matter is scheduled for tomorrow in Belknap County Superior Court. Karen Mekkelsen, 29, formerly of North Main Street, pleaded guilty in March 2012 in Belknap County Superior Court to conspiracy to distribute heroin with a death resulting. She also pleaded guilty to a different charge of possession of heroin with intent to distribute. Mekkelsen, who is represented by Atty. Matt Lahey, said evidence discovered during the investigation and trial of one of her alleged con-conspirators revealed that a man who was not identified in the initial investigation posted on Facebook that he was the one who gave Ashley Denty the fatal dose. “I killed her, I shot her up and it’s my fault and innocent people went to prison because of me, she was my best friend,” wrote the Plymouth man on his Facebook page. Ashely Denty, 22, formerly of Union Avenue was found dead by her neighbors on April 1, 2011, after they heard her 2-year-old son crying and convinced him to open the door and let them in. The N.H. State Medical Examiner said her death was caused by a heroin overdose. Mekkelsen claims the Belknap County Attorney’s Office had the information from Laconia Police in transcripts taken on April 24, 2013, and had forwarded them to the prosecution on July 9. At the time, the county was prosecuting Alfredo Gonzales, 48, for his alleged role in supplying the heroin to Mekkelsen. He was
charged with one count of distributing heroin with death resulting. In the wake of this new information, charges against Gonzalez were dropped in August. Mekkelsen asked the court in September to grant her motion for a new trial, appoint a new lawyer for her, and schedule an emergency hearing. In October, Judge James O’Neill granted her request for a new courtappointed lawyer, Lahey. Asst. County Prosecutor Carley Ahern has objected to Mekkelsen’s request for a new trial by saying Mekkelson also pleaded guilty to a charge of possession of a controlled drug with the intent to distribute it, which is a separate and distinct event from the sale of the heroin that killed Denty. As to the possession charge, affidavits at the time of her arrest said Laconia Police found 26 bags of heroin on her and that she told them Gonzalez was allegedly providing her with 600 bags weekly to sell, or $2,000 daily. Ahern, in her motion objecting to a new trial, said Mekkelson has failed to show why the recently unearthed and, in her opinion, exculpatory evidence would lead to a verdict in her favor. Ahern also said that in order to grant a new trial the laws says the evidence must not have been discovered by the moving party, that the evidence is admissible, and that it is of such a character that a different result would be reached — standards she said haven’t been met. “However, the third party’s statements are unreliable, contrary to statements by all other witnesses and are inconsistent with the physical evidence including the medical examiner’s report and the reported time of death,” Ahern wrote. The motion hearing for a new trial is scheduled for tomorrow at 9 a.m.
ELECTION from page one a divisive issue the engaged segment of the electorate weighs the candidates then chooses the one with whom they feel most comfortable. Although he purchased print advertising and distributed yard signs, Engler sensed that his success owed much to word of mouth, noting that people both inside and outside the city promoted his candidacy. Engler said that he intended “to start getting engaged from a conversation standpoint immediately,” adding that he has been approached by some and will approach others. Economic development, the primary theme of his campaign, he indicated would be a priority, beginning with how to apply the funds accrued by the downtown tax increment financing (TIF), a question currently before the City Council. “I intend to participate in that conversation,” Engler said. Mitchell, in his first bid for major office, said “it was a great campaign, a really good race. I put my heart and soul into it. The people had a
really tough choice,” he continued, noting that there was little difference between the candidates on many issues. “The subtleties made the difference,” he said. In the most hotly contested of the council elections, Bolduc polled 282 votes to Felch’s 170 to keep his seat in Ward 6. In the strongest turnout among the six wards, nearly one of every four registered voters cast ballots in a tribute to the energy of the campaigns waged by both candidates. Bolduc said that he walked the entire ward and phoned most voters while Felch spent his spare moments going door-to-door throughout the ward. Felch, who challenged Bolduc for the second time, doubted he would do so again. “I’m glad I put my name out there and gave people the opportunity to choose,” he said, “but the people have spoken and they like things the way they are.” Felch called for eliminating the primary election during his campaign and vowed to pursue the issue. “He’s my councilor,” he said of Bolduc, see next page

LACONIA — A majority of the unit owners at Briarcrest Estates yesterday petitioned the Belknap County Superior Court to intervene in pending litigation in an effort to forestall the sale of the manufactured housing park to the Lakemont Cooperative Inc., which was formed by a minority of tenants of the park. Attorney Philip McLaughlin, representing at least 175 of the 240 residents of the park, claims that the state statute governing such transactions fails to anticipate that a majority of tenants will prefer commercial to cooperative ownership and to provide them with a role in affecting the sale of the property. Nevertheless, they have a “direct and apparent interest” in both the transaction and litigation, namely “their desire not to be forced to assume for themselves or their successors, through an involuntary process, debt associated with the proposed acquisition of Briarcrest Estates by Lakemont Cooperative, Inc.” In July Mark and Ruth Mooney, the owners of the park, accepted an offer from Hometown America Corporation of Chicago to purchase the park for $10 million. In accord with a state law entitling park tenants to make a counteroffer and requiring park owners to bargain in good faith, a group of residents, with encouragement and assistance from ROC-NH, a program of the New Hampshire Community Loan Fund, incorporated as the Lakemont Cooperative and matched the $10 million offer. In response, the Mooneys asked the Belknap County Superior Court to approve the sale of the park to Hometown America. Attorney John Giere, representing the Mooneys, claimed that approving the transaction would be in keeping with the statute, which is is intended to safeguard the best interests of tenants, most of whom oppose cooperative ownership of the park. The Lakemont Cooperative, represented by Attorney Robert Shepherd of Nashua, asked the court to dismiss the Mooneys’ petition. Shepherd told the court that as the owners of the
park the Mooneys were in no position to represent the interests of its residents. Shepherd reminded the court that the statute does not prescribe that the cooperative include a specific number or percentage of tenants to make an offer and pursue the transaction. By refusing to sign the purchase and sale agreement, he charged, the Mooneys have wrongfully refused to consider the cooperative’s offer and failed to negotiate in good faith, exposing themselves to penalties amounting to $10,000 or 10 percent of the sale price whichever is greater. In seeking a role for the majority, McLaughlin told the court that “the legislation (RSA 205-A:21) . . . did not contemplate that the Community Loan Fund, or any affiliate, such as ROC-NH, would organize a tenants’ organization that represented the will of a distinct minority.” At the same time, he noted that nothing in the statute “prohibits Briarcrest tenants from intervening in the present action” or bars the Mooneys from weighing the opposition of a majority of tenants to cooperative ownership when fulfilling their duty to bargain in good faith. McLaughlin asked the court to conclude that the Mooneys “may, as they discharge their statutory duty to bargain in good faith, take into account, that good faith extends to consideration beyond the will of the minority (whether in an association or not) and should consider the will and the reasons for the opposition of the majority.” McLaughlin filed a petition bearing the signatures of both the 11 original complainants and their supporters from 131 households in the park with the court. Together they represent 59 percent of the 241 sites in the park. Meanwhile, the Mooneys and the cooperative are at odds about how the litigation should proceed. So far attorneys representing the two parties have failed to reach agreement. Those representing the Mooneys, believe that the issue is a matter of law that can be resolved based on the pleadings and documents before the court, while Shepherd prefers a more traditional approach, including discovery through interrogatories and depositions and perhaps a trial.

JAIL from page one tendent Daniel Ward said that he had obtained an estimate of a three-year lease of a 48-bed temporary facility for $1,787,000. Architect Gary Goudreau said that utilities — water, sewer and power — would have to be connected to the temporary unit, which would also need security fencing, bringing the
cost to around $2 million. The other $500,000 of the bond issue would be used to have a schematic design done of the proposed 94,000 square foot facility the committee has been considering, a design which Goudreau said would provide the basis for cost estimates for the a new facility which would be based on an actual see next page

Gilmanton property tax rate drops by $2.27 BY GAIL OBER
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
GILMANTON — Town Administrator Arthur Capello said the state Department of Revenue Administration has set the town’s tax rate at $21.15 per $1,000 of valuation which is down $2.27 from last year. The municipal rate dropped from $5.47 to $4.67 and the local school rate went from $13.93 to $12.36. The Belknap County portion of the rate went from $1.36 to $1.39 and the State-wide Property Tax went from $2.39 to $2.43. Capello said the selectmen’s proposed operating budget for 2014 is down about $50,000 from the 2013 operating budget — or $3,315,218 in 2013 to $3,260,237. He said yesterday that the board and the department heads also had to compensate for an additional $40,000 for contributions to the state retirement system so, in real numbers, the selectmen eliminated $90,000 from the 2014 operating budget request. “The department heads were given a direction of flat-lining (their budgets), and that’s what they did,” Capello said. As for raises, Capello said none was incorporated in to the 2014 budget. However, he said selectman are considering a separate warrant article that would include some as-yet undermined amount for raises. Some of the operating budget savings came from switching employee healthcare to School Care, a Cigna Insurance company product that Capello said gives essentially the same coverage but for less money, saving $12,000. Gilmanton also saved $14,000 by switching their workers’ compensation insurance from the Local Government Center to Primex. At this point, he said selectmen have not finished the capital budget. from preceding page design which would factor in local construction costs, rather than costs designed on programs. Ward said that the bottom line for the facility proposed by the Ricci Greene consulting firm is actually $37 million, not the much touted $42 million which has been used for months, and County Commissioner Ed Philpot said that he was hoping value engineering based on a schematic design could sharply reduce that cost. Goudreau said that it is his considered opinion is that any attempt to come up with a program of renovations and additions to the current facility should see only the 1988 addition used and all of the rest of the current building demolished. ‘’Putting money into rehabbing anything other than the 1988 addition doesn’t make sense,’’ said Goudreau, who pointed out that the exterior envelope of the current building is cracking and that there is a long list of building defects. He said that even if the 1988 addition is used it would still need and 4,000 square foot addition to provide the 17,500 square feet of space needed for the community justice program. Hunter Taylor of Alton, a new member of the committee whose wife was recently named a member of the Gunstock Area Commission, said that he was concerned that the committee was hung up on achieving a goal which didn’t command enough community support to pass the County Delegation. He suggested bringing in a plan with a $15 million price tag which would be capable of winning support to get something done. ‘’Once the camel’s nose is under the tent more things can happen,’’ said Taylor, who said that unless something was done to improve the facility ‘’you can bet a federal judge in Concord will tell us. That’s where we will ultimately go.’’ But Philpot questioned whether it was wise to put that much money into a project and not do it good see next page

Sanbornton tax rate Belmont selectmen want second opinion on Fire climbs 13% to $22.97 Department’s Engine 2 before refurbishment
SANBORNTON — The New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration has set the 2013 property tax rate at $22.97 per $1,000 of assessed valuation, an increase of $2.64, or 13 percent, over the 2012 rate. The amount to be raised by property taxes grew by $103,303, of 1.2 percent, from $8,676,001 to $8,779,304 while the total assessed valuation dropped by $45,173,395, or 10.4 percent, from $432,619,969 to $387,446,574. The town tax rose from $7.68 to $8.72, the local school tax from $8.96 to $10.25, the state education tax from $2.40 to $2.56 and the county tax from $1.29 to $1.44.
SHOOP from page 2 tial new job and seemed especially happy about it, according to a woman who said she had known him since they were little. “He told me that he was going to get a new job at this TV place and he was going to make good money,” Madison Barbarini said. “He told me that he was doing really well and it seemed like he was really happy. Things just don’t add up. Why would he do this? It doesn’t make sense.” The friend she knew “honestly would never hurt a fly,” Barbarini added. The suspect’s brother, Kevin Shoop, told reporters outside their home on a quiet suburban block in Teaneck that his brother was “a great person” who was liked by friends and family and gave no advance warning about what he intended to do. “He just sadly decided to make an act of — an act of, I guess, self-indulgence — by taking his own life publicly,” Kevin Shoop said. “And it’s a tragedy to us all. And we’re going to now handle matters and deal with them.” Dod Geges, the owner of a pizzeria in Teaneck where Shoop worked for several years, said Shoop didn’t show violent tendencies and “was always sad” when he heard about shootings on TV. Shoop left an ambiguous note with his family that raised concern, however. Molinelli, the prosecutor, would not call it a suicide note, but he said it did “express that an end is coming. It could have been prison. ... It could have been what he did last night. It gave his family reason to reach out to us.” from preceding page enough so that it would have a long, useful life and meet future needs. Commission Chairman John Thomas said that low-balling the costs would leave the county in the same situation that it is in today and cut out needed programs. ‘’One of the reasons Steve (fellow Commissioner Steve Nedeau, who like Thomas has a law enforcement background) and I are so strong for this project is that he and I are tired of seeing the grandchildren of the same people we used to lock up being brought in here,’’ said Thomas. The current facility has a capacity of 120 inmates but has had as many as 151 on some days in recent months. ‘’We’re bursting at the seams. We need the space and we need the mental health and substance abuse programs.’’ said Ward. County Administrator Debra Shackett said that if the county sticks with the current facility is faces other major costs, including as much as $1 million for new HVAC system for the jail, where ‘’no air is moving and mold is growing.’’ Sheriff Craig Wiggin said that the costs of transporting prisoners around the state was becoming a major burden for the Sheriff’s Department and that since mid-July he has already spent an additional $12,000 in salary, put 8,000 miles on the fleet, and incurred $3,000 in additional fuel costs. ‘’It’s just going to get worse. The wheels are going to being coming off our cars and we’re going to be exceeding our overtime and auto fleet budgets,’’ said Wiggin.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
BELMONT — Selectmen have asked Fire Chief Dave Parenti to get a second opinion about the condition of a fire engine before any decisions are made to refurbish it. Parenti told selectmen during his budget presentation last month that he may ask for about $200,000 to refurbish Engine 2, but wanted to make sure that it would last eight to 10 years before the town spent the money. Saying body rust was one of the key problems, he suggested taking it to Repair Service of New England — or RSNE — of Gilford to make sure the frame rails were not rusted and selectmen agreed. On Nov. 4, selectmen were forwarded a letter sent by RSNE owner Rick Gagnon which concluded, “In our opinion, it isn’t likely this unit will be reliable for the next 10 years.” RSNE expressed concerns about the integrity of the frame air system, the brakes, the air lines, the
radiator, the water piping and the injectors. They tested the transmission and engine oil but said the results weren’t back yet. What was not in the report, said Selectman Jon Pike, was any mention of the condition of the frame rails. “I don’t like this letter,” Pike said. His interpretation of the RSNE letter was that Parenti, who was not at Monday’s meeting, was against refurbishing the truck. Pike also said that for years the Fire Department used Winnipesaukee Truck Repairs and said he was under the impression the selectmen were going to get an evaluation of the frame rails from RSNE. “I think we need two opinions,” Pike said. Selectman Ron Cormier and Selectman Ruth Mooney agreed.

Democrat Bill de Blasio elected mayor of New York NEW YORK (AP) — Bill de Blasio was elected New York City’s first Democratic mayor in two decades Tuesday, running on an unabashedly liberal, tax-the-rich platform that contrasted sharply with billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s record during 12 years in office. With 21 percent of precincts reporting, De Blasio, the city’s public advocate, had 72 percent of the vote compared with 26 percent for Republican Joe Lhota, former chief of the metropolitan area’s transit agency. De Blasio, 52, will take office on Jan. 1 as the 109th mayor of the nation’s largest city. He ran as the anti-Bloomberg, railing against economic inequality and portraying New York as a “tale of two cities” — one rich, the other working class — under the pro-business, pro-development mayor, who made his fortune from the financial information company that bears his name. “Today you spoke loudly and clearly for a new direction for our city,” de Blasio told a rollicking crowd of supporters at the YMCA in his home neighborhood of Park Slope, Brooklyn, a far cry from the glitzy Manhattan hotel ballrooms that usually host election night parties. “We are united in the belief that our city should leave no New Yorker behind,” he said. “The people of
this city have chosen a progressive path, and tonight we set forth on it together as one city.” De Blasio, who held a commanding lead in the polls throughout the campaign, reached out to New Yorkers he contended were left behind by the often Manhattan-centric Bloomberg administration, and he called for a tax increase on the wealthy to pay for universal pre-kindergarten. He also pledged to improve economic opportunities in minority and working-class neighborhoods. He decried alleged abuses under the police department’s stop-and-frisk policy and enjoyed a surge when a federal judge ruled that police had unfairly singled out blacks and Hispanics. The candidate, a white man married to a black woman, also received a boost from a campaign ad featuring their son, a 15-year-old with a big Afro. Despite his reputation for idealism, he has also shown a pragmatic side, having worked for both Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton and Gov. Andrew Cuomo, and was known for closed-door wheelingand-dealing while serving on the City Council. If de Blasio’s margin of victory holds, it will surpass Abe Beame’s 40-point win in 1973 as the largest by a non-incumbent since five-borough elections began in 1897.
CHRISTIE from page 2 courting constituencies that often shun the GOP: minorities, women and even Democrats, who outnumber Republicans among registered voters by more than 3-to-2. Christie, who is openly considering running for president, has said his success offers a template for broadening the GOP’s appeal after the disastrous 2012 election cycle and the party’s record-low approval ratings following the recent government shutdown. Christie will take over later this month as chairman of the Republican Governors Association, a position that will further raise his national profile. Christie becomes his party’s biggest winner on a night in which the GOP was expected to lose a gubernatorial election in Virginia that featured conservative firebrand Ken Cuccinelli. Christie, in contrast, painted himself as a pragmatic leader who worked with Democrats to get the job done during his four years in office. It was a picture that largely went unchallenged during an election that was never really in doubt. The Obama administration declined to deploy its
best political weapons against Christie, while Buono struggled to earn the support of her party’s most devoted supporters. The Democratic Governors Association spent less than $5,000 on the contest while pouring more than $6 million into the Virginia election. Christie built a national fundraising network, dramatically outspending Buono on the airwaves and improving his organization beyond New Jersey. The Christie campaign spent $11.5 million on TV and radio ads, compared with Buono’s $2.1 million, according to SMG Delta, a Virginia-based firm that tracks political spending. Buono repeatedly tried to use Christie’s presidential ambitions against him, accusing him of putting his interests ahead of New Jersey’s. She supported gay marriage and abortion rights, while Christie opposes both. When it became clear last month that the New Jersey Supreme Court would rule in favor of gay marriage, Christie dropped an appeal, allowing the practice to become legal in the state. During a debate less than a month ago, Christie admitted he might not serve out his full second term should he launch a White House bid. “I won’t make those decisions until I have to,” he said. Facing a skeptical moderator, he replied in the usual blunt, you-gotta-be-kidding-me manner that has proved appealing to voters of both parties: “I can walk and chew gum at the same time. I can do this job and also deal with my future.”

German authorities uncover stache of 1,400 paintings suspected to be Nazi hoard AUGSBURG, Germany (AP) — It started with a routine check by German tax inspectors — and resulted in the discovery of an art hoard so vast and spectacular that no one yet knows how the story truly ends. On a high-speed train from Zurich to Munich on Sept. 22, 2010, Germany’s briskly polite officialdom was on the lookout for customs and tax cheats. Thousands of German citizens had bank accounts in Switzerland, many of them undeclared, and the route from Zurich was a prime target for those carrying substantial sums of cash. One elderly man on the train raised their suspicions and prosecutors launched a preliminary tax FORD from page 2 “Yes, I have smoked crack cocaine,” Ford told reporters earlier in the day. “There have been times when I’ve been in a drunken stupor. That’s why I want to see the tape. I want everyone in the city to see this tape. I don’t even recall there being a tape or video. I want to see the state that I was in.” Later at a news conference, he said acknowledging the drug use made him feel as if he had “1,000 pounds off my back.” Authorities have said the video, which has not been released publicly, does not constitute enough evidence to charge the mayor with a crime. Police have said they want to talk to the mayor, but his lawyer so far has declined. Police spokesman Mark Pugush said Ford’s acknowledgement of crack use will be passed on to investigators. Several Toronto city councilors called on Ford to step down, and Canada’s justice minister urged him to get help. The controversy has drawn comparisons to the 1990 arrest of then-Washington Mayor Marion Barry, who was videotaped smoking crack cocaine in a hotel room during an FBI sting operation. Barry served six months in federal prison for misdemeanor drug possession but later won a fourth term in 1994. Earlier in the day, the 44-year-old Ford walked out of his office and asked reporters to ask him the question they first posed back in May. He then acknowledged he smoked crack but said: “Am I an addict? No. Have I tried it? Probably in one of my drunken stupors a year ago.” Municipal law makes no provision for the mayor’s forced removal from office unless he is convicted and jailed for a criminal offense. City Councilor Denzil Minnan-Wong, a member of Ford’s executive committee, said he would put forward a motion asking Ford to take a leave of absence. “My first reaction was ‘Wow’,” Minnan-Wong said. Councilor Jaye Robinson said the mayor needs to step aside and address his problems. “We have become a laughing stock of North America, if not the world,” Robinson said. Canadian Justice Minister Peter MacKay said it was “a sad day for the city of Toronto.” “As a human being, I think the mayor of Toronto needs to get help,” MacKay said. The populist Ford has been dogged by allegations of bad behavior since becoming mayor three years ago, promising to end what he called wasteful spending at city hall. His campaign galvanized conservatives in Toronto’s outlying suburbs, where initiatives like downtown bike lanes were considered excessive and elitist. The crack episode is not the first time Ford has been forced to admit drug use. During the campaign, he acknowledged after repeated denials that he was busted for marijuana possession in Florida in 1999. Ford apologized over the weekend for excessive drinking. He said he should not have been “hammered” drunk in public when he appeared at a street festival in August, calling it “pure stupidity.” He also said he got “a little out of control” after St. Patrick’s Day in 2012, when city hall security guards said they witnessed a “very intoxicated’ Ford having trouble walking and swearing at aides. The mayor has also been accused of making an obscene gesture from his car and texting while driving. In 2011, Ford angered the city’s gay community by declining to attend Toronto’s gay pride parade, breaking with tradition observed by three previous mayors.
probe against him. Two years later, in February 2012, the trail led to the man’s apartment in a wealthy district of Munich. Once inside, inspectors found a far more glittering prize than smuggled cash or evaded taxes: a huge collection of hidden artwork that sheds new light on some of the 20th-century’s master painters and reawakens painful memories of Germany’s Nazi past. The paintings, drawings, engravings, woodcuts and prints numbered more than 1,400 in all and were created by an all-star roster of modern art: Marc Chagall, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, PierreAuguste Renoir, Oskar Kokoschka, and leading German artists Otto Dix, Max Liebermann, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner. At least one older work was in the trove: a 16th-century engraving of the Crucifixion by Albrecht Duerer. Some pieces — ones by Matisse, Chagall, Dix — were previously unknown, not listed in the detailed inventories compiled by art scholars. Investigators’ excitement at the find was tempered by a disturbing question. At least some of the works had apparently been seized by the Nazis — so who were they taken from and who now are their rightful owners? At a news conference Tuesday in Augsburg, Germany, prosecutors wouldn’t identify the elderly suspect, citing tax secrecy laws and the ongoing investigation. They did say he hasn’t asked for the artwork back and that they were not currently in contact with him.
Prosecutors are probing whether he improperly acquired the works, but no charges have been filed and prosecutors say there may not be any. Although prosecutors didn’t name the suspect, heirs of the late Jewish collector Alfred Flechtheim issued a statement saying the case raised “justifiable suspicions” that some works the Nazis had taken from him might have been bought by Hildebrand Gurlitt, an art dealer who acted for the Nazis. A Max Beckmann painting that once belonged to Flechtheim was sold two years ago through the Lempertz auction house in Cologne. A legal adviser for Lempertz, Karl-Sax Feddersen, told The Associated Press that the seller was Gurlitt’s son Cornelius. The German magazine Focus also reported that Cornelius Gurlitt was the man under investigation. Neither Cornelius Gurlitt nor his lawyer could immediately be reached for comment Tuesday. The mystery now turns to the art. The 121 framed and 1,285 unframed works found in one room at the apartment were “professionally stored and in a very good condition,” said Siegfried Kloeble, head of the customs investigations office in Munich. He said it took a specialist company three days to remove the paintings; officials refused to say where they are being kept now. Investigators, aided by a leading art historian, are trying to establish the artworks’ legal status and history. So far, officials said they have done at least preliminary research on only about 500 of the pieces.

Belknap County Republican Committee plans Common Core Forum on November 13 LACONIA — Common Core is the name given to a revised curriculum as mandated by the State and Federal governments through New Hampshire’s Department of Education. Many states and local communities have accepted the new curriculum; however, many questions and concerns are now being raised about the curriculum. Some of the areas in question are its components, its value, its impact on local control of education, and the cost to taxpayers. In an effort to address these and other questions and concerns, a “Common Core Forum” is being held on Wednesday November 13 at 7 p.m. at the Beane Conference Center, 35 Blueberry Lane in Laconia. The Forum is open to the general public, however, people are asked to RSVP by November 8 for this event as seating is limited. The intent of the Forum is to create greater awareness of what Common Core is, and what its proponents and opponents are saying about it. The
Forum will feature five panelists with a wide range of knowledge about Common Core. The panelists include two experts who also served on the Common Core panel discussion held recently at the Institute of Politics at St. Anselm College which was attended by over 200 people. They are Sandra Stotsky, Ed.D and Jamie Gass, Pioneer Institute. Joining them on the panel are Ann Marie Banfield, a Common Core expert from Cornerstone Policy Research; Glenn Cordelli, a New Hampshire State Representative serving on the House Education Committee; and Doris Hohensee, representing New Hampshire Families for Education. The Forum is being hosted by the Belknap County Republican Committee, but it is intended to provide information about Common Core to the general public since Common Core affects all families regardless of political affiliation. For more information, or to RSVP, email to BelknapRSVP@gmail.com.

Franklin VNA & Hospice holding annual wreath sale through Nov. 15 FRANKLIN — The annual wreath sale to benefit Franklin VNA & Hospice is in progress and will go on through November 15. “This year, we are trying to be more environmentally aware and save some trees so we are encouraging people who have internet access to order online at our website www.vnafnh.org”, Tryon explained. “The online store is very easy to use and uses PayPal for secure payments. Eliminating paper forms has also allowed us to expand the variety of items we can offer and, as an added bonus, there are 3 online items that can be shipped direct from the grower. Of course, phoning an order to me is always an option, as well. However, direct ship is not an option on phone orders.” As per previous years, orders will be delivered in time for Thanksgiving and will be available for pick-up on Tuesday, November 26 and Wednesday, November 27 at the Franklin VNA office. Starting November 6 and for 6 Wednesdays thru December 18 (skipping the night before Thanksgiving), a free Hospice volunteer training will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wanda Belyea, Volunteer Training instructor, says for more information or to register for Hospice volunteer classes, con-
tact Beth or Bruce at Franklin VNA & Hospice at 934-3454. The VNA will present its annual musical concert for the benefit of its Hospice Program on November 10.

This year’s program is being hosted by the First Baptist Church of Sanbornton, 17 Church Lane, Rte 127, Sanbornton. Beth Rodd, coordinator of the event for the VNA, says “November is national Hospice month. The VNA of Franklin’s Hospice program, along with Clayton Bushman on behalf of the Lakes Association of Churches, presents this program every November to support and to honor the Hospice program. This gathering also gives us the opportunity for a memorial service to remember our Hospice patients who have died over the past year.” The program begins at 3 p.m. and runs for about an hour and a half. Refreshments will be served at the end of the program and a free will donation in support of the Hospice program will be taken.

Classic comedy Harvey at Winnipesaukee Playhouse MEREDITH — The Winnipesaukee Playhouse will be presenting Mary Chase’s Pulitzer Prizewinning comedy Harvey. This classic comedy will be presented by the Winni Players Community Theatre Group on Friday through Sunday, November 8-10 and 15-17. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Harvey, which premiered on Broadway in 1944 and was made into a film starring James Stewart in 1950, was most recently revived on Broadway in 2012 when it featured The Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons.

Elwood introduces Harvey to everyone he meets, and
his sister, Veta, increasingly finds his eccentric behavior embarrassing. She decides to have him committed to a sanitarium to spare her and her daughter Myrtle Mae from future embarrassment. Those circumstances only begin the comedy as mistakes and mix-ups at the sanitarium cause even more upheaval. Director Charles Fray helms a cast of Winni Players regulars including Diane Nickerson, Maggie Roberts, Bryan Halperin, Michael Baker, Meredith Imbimbo, John Wade, Lynn Dadian, John Piquado and Barbara Webb.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Peek into your dreams of the past week because they have something to teach you. Sure, some of them were weird and hard to understand, but you’ll have a pretty good idea as to the meaning. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Make a list before you get into action. This practice is the key to your success. The list allows you to expend less mental energy. You’ll rely on the order you established and in the end have brainpower to spare. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The old saying goes that “you can’t take it with you,” but people still like to think they own their possessions for as long as they can grasp them. They’ll be touchy about that today, so be careful about crossing territorial lines. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 6). Your emotional life will brim with fresh feelings, and you’ll be inspired to create something beautiful in the world that wasn’t there before. Rest up at the end of the year. You’ll need strength to fully take advantage of the January opportunity to work hard and earn much. May and September bring more of the same. Pisces and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 30, 40, 22 and 48.
HOROSCOPE ARIES (March 21-April 19). The world was here before you and has plenty to teach you. You’ll be drawn to matters of history, and you’ll find a way to frame the present that will look good in retrospect. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There’s always a cause and an effect. The ones who don’t create the cause are not entitled to the effect. Your role today is to remind people not to be so spoiled. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The day brings a situation in which it will be better to take action than not. You won’t feel that you’re informed enough. You won’t feel that you’re ready. But the time to act is within 24 hours. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You try to apply the right remedy to every less than optimal situation you encounter: truth to slander, freshness to toxicity, vitality to lethargy. You’ll be successful in this game. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The excitement is palpable. The opportunity that’s coming to you is what you’ve worked so hard to achieve. All of what you want is wrapped up in this; it’s like a burrito of your hopes and wishes. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Some people are never so creative as when they get caught doing what they ought not to be doing. You use creativity proactively, and that’s part of why you are not even tempted to stray from your path. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Stay alert. What’s beautiful in the world won’t linger, waiting to be adored. It will fly by and only be appreciated by those who are observant and quick enough to catch it. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your appetite is not insatiable; you’ll be quite satisfied, indeed. But that part doesn’t last. This is the way it is with people like you who are always growing and striving to understand more. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You will feel a driving need to take stock of what you own and have achieved. You may also do a personal inventory of your good and bad qualities. Be kind to yourself during this process.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, November 6, 2013— Page 19
––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Wednesday, Nov. 6, the 310th day of 2013. There are 55 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 6, 1888, Republican Benjamin Harrison won the presidential election, defeating Democratic incumbent Grover Cleveland with an electoral vote count of 233-168, even though Cleveland led in the popular vote. On this date: In 1632, King Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden was killed in battle. In 1860, former Illinois congressman Abraham Lincoln defeated three other candidates for the presidency: John Breckinridge, John Bell and Stephen Douglas. In 1861, Confederate President Jefferson Davis was elected to a six-year term of office. In 1893, composer Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky died in St. Petersburg, Russia, at age 53. In 1928, in a first, the results of Republican Herbert Hoover’s election victory over Democrat Alfred E. Smith were flashed onto an electric wraparound sign on the New York Times building. In 1934, Nebraska voters approved dissolving their two-chamber legislature in favor of a nonpartisan, single (or “unicameral”) legislative body, which was implemented in 1937. In 1944, British official Lord Moyne was assassinated in Cairo, Egypt, by members of the Zionist Stern gang. In 1947, “Meet the Press” made its debut on NBC; the first guest was James A. Farley, former postmaster general and former Democratic National Committee Chair; the host was the show’s co-creator, Martha Rountree. In 1956, President Dwight D. Eisenhower won re-election, defeating Democrat Adlai E. Stevenson. In 1962, Democrat Edward M. Kennedy was elected Senator from Massachusetts. In 1977, 39 people were killed when the Kelly Barnes Dam burst, sending a wall of water through Toccoa Falls College in Georgia. In 1990, about one-fifth of the Universal Studios backlot in southern California was destroyed in an arson fire. Ten years ago: President Bush signed an $87.5 billion package approved by Congress for Iraq and Afghanistan. Federal judges in New York and California blocked a new ban on certain late-term abortions, a day after President Bush signed it into law. The U.S. Mint unveiled the new nickel. Five years ago: President-elect Barack Obama spoke by phone with nine world leaders and met privately at the FBI office in Chicago with U.S. intelligence officials, preparing to become commander in chief. One year ago: As Americans went to the polls, President Barack Obama extended congratulations to rival Mitt Romney “on a spirited campaign” and said he was “cautiously optimistic” he would win. The president and first lady spent Election Day in Chicago while Romney gathered with his family at a waterfront hotel in Boston to watch the election returns.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, November 6, 2013— Page 21
Dear Annie: My wife and I have been happily married for 27 years. We are both in our early 50s, physically fit and active. My wife looks the same today as the day we married. She’s extremely attractive. The problem? She has no sex drive. She never really has. But in the past few years, her cold shoulders seem much more pronounced. We currently have sex maybe once every two weeks. She seems to enjoy it once things get rolling. But when I ask why she prefers such infrequent encounters, she says “it’s too much work” and she “doesn’t have the need for it” like I do. The two times per month are great. But the other 28 days are frustrating. I would like more intimacy in our marriage and have asked her for it. But it doesn’t seem to be an issue with her, and she’s not particularly sensitive to my needs. Any advice would be appreciated. -- Frustrated in South Dakota Dear Frustrated: Since your wife started marriage with a diminished libido, it’s unlikely to have improved at this point. Please ask her to discuss this with her doctor in order to strengthen your marriage. She should be willing to make the effort, but if she refuses to address this, we hope you will not make sex the focus of your relationship. If your wife has other qualities that make her a good partner, try to concentrate on those. We know many folks -- male and female -- would be thrilled to have sex twice a month. Intimacy is important, but it isn’t everything. Dear Annie: As a self-employed hairstylist facing the upcoming flu season, I would like to speak on behalf of all personal service providers. Most of us work on a commission basis and do not have sick leave. If we are not at work, we don’t get paid. If we get sick from clients, we miss work and run the
risk of infecting our fellow employees and our families. Last year my Christmas holiday was ruined when I became sick because clients with fevers dragged themselves to the salon to get their hair done. Several coughed right in my face. They’ve taken every over-the-counter drug on the market and can hardly keep their eyes open, but still think it’s OK to sit in my chair. If your child is too sick to go to school, please don’t decide it’s a good day to get their hair cut because they’re home anyway. If you are sick (sore throat, coughing, fever), please respect us and stay home. If you come in anyway, and we can see that you are sick, do not get insulted and storm off when we say we will not be able to perform your service that day. We’ll be happy to do it when you are better. -- Stylist Trying To Stay Well Dear Stylist: Thank you for reminding people that we each have a responsibility to take our health and that of others seriously. If you have a fever, cough, sniffles or other indication that you may be contagious, please stay home. You’ll feel better -- and so will everyone else. Dear Annie: I’d suggest to “Any Name in Any City” that whatever is going on between her and her husband probably has nothing to do with her weight. I agree with you, Annie, that he is a bully and a verbal abuser. My husband, an alcoholic, was both verbally and physically abusive to me when I was a petite 127 pounds after two children. I finally got him into treatment and myself out of the marriage. He dated 13 women in a year and then married a woman twice my size. Something else is going on, and you may never know what it is. Life is short. Get out. -- California
