about the current plans for constructing a new county jail. Hamel based his misgivings on reports of the conceptual plan presented by Ricci Greene Associates, a consulting firm engaged by the commission to assist with the planning process. The plan envisions a two-story, 94,450-squarefoot facility estimated to cost

$42.5-million. It would have 180 beds, plus five for inmates requiring medical care. A third of the beds — 44 for men and 16 for women — would be reserved for inmates awaiting trial, on work release, undergoing treatment or on electronic monitoring. The remaining 120 beds — 88 for men and 32 for women — would be allotted to

maximum, medium, and minimum security inmates as well as those with special needs. The major feature of the project is the community corrections component, an array of therapeutic services, educational programs and vocational training to prepare inmates for a successful return to the see JAIL page 10

Initial mandatory recycling results encouraging but not spectacular BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — The volume of recyclables collected at the curbside increased during the first week of the mandatory recycling program, but fell short of 30-percent of the solid waste stream, which is among the targets set for the program. On the five routes, 43.18 tons of recyclables were collected during the week of July 1 compared to 36.05 tons during the week of

Recycling tonnage represented 20.3-percent of the 211.04 tons of solid waste collected during the two week period (June 24 to July 5) compared to 16.8-percent during the prior period (June 10 to June 21).

Estranged husband charged with killing N.H. women who had been missing for 2 week

CONCORD (AP) — The death of a New Hampshire woman who had been missing for nearly two weeks is a homicide, and an arrest warrant has been issued for her estranged husband in Vermont on a second-degree murder charge, authorities said Monday. The charge alleges that James Robarge recklessly caused the death of 42-year-old Kelly Robarge on June 27 in Charlestown, by inflicting trauma to her body. James Robarge of Rockingham is jailed at the Southern State Correctional Facility in Springfield, Vt., on unrelated motor vehicle charges stemming from his arrest last week in Bellows Falls near a medical center. Vermont State Police have charged the 43-year-old Robarge with being a fugitive from justice. He was see ROBARGE page 9

Quebec town braces for discovery of more bodies LAC-MEGANTIC, Quebec (AP) — Traumatized survivors of an oil train derailment that wiped out the heart of a small town braced for more bad news as inspectors were finally cleared to enter the charred site’s epicenter and look for remains late Monday, more than two days after the disaster that killed at least 13 people. A total of 50 were missing and the death toll was sure to rise. Quebec provincial police Sgt. Benoit Richard said eight more bodies had been

found in the wreckage after firefighters doused the flames and cooled down some of the oil tankers that were in danger of exploding. Five bodies were found over the weekend, and police would not say where the newly discovered ones were, for fear of upsetting families. All but one of the train’s 73 tanker cars were carrying oil when they came loose early Saturday, sped downhill nearly seven miles (11 kilometers) into the town of LacMegantic, near the Maine border, and

derailed. At least five of the cars exploded. Maude Verrault, a waitress at downtown’s Musi-Cafe, was outside smoking when she spotted the blazing train barreling toward her. “I’ve never seen a train moving so fast in my life, and I saw flames ... Then someone screamed ‘the train is going to derail!’ and that’s when I ran,” Verrault said. She said she felt the heat scorch her back as she ran from the explosion, but was too terrified to see TRAIN page 4

CAIRO (AP) — Egypt was rocked Monday by the deadliest day since its Islamist president was toppled by the military, with more than 50 of his supporters killed by security forces as the country’s top Muslim cleric raised the specter of civil war. The military found itself on the defensive after the bloodshed, but the interim president drove ahead with the army’s political plan. He issued a swift timetable for the

process of amending the Islamist-backed constitution and set parliamentary and presidential elections for early 2014. The killings further entrenched the battle lines between supporters and opponents of ousted President Mohammed Morsi, who was removed by the military July 3 after a year in office following mass demonstrations by millions of Egyptians. Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood called for an

uprising, accusing troops of gunning down protesters, while the military blamed armed Islamists for provoking its forces. The shootings began during a protest by about 1,000 Islamists outside the Republican Guard headquarters where Morsi, Egypt’s first freely elected leader, was detained last week.

Roman Catholic parishes in Tilton & Franklin merging to form Saint Gabriel By Mel Flanagan CONCORD MONITOR

TILTON/FRANKLIN — Catholic parishes in Franklin and Tilton have merged to form one consolidated parish, Saint Gabriel, the Diocese of Manchester has announced. Saint Paul Parish in Franklin and Saint Mary of the Assumption Parish in Tilton combined for the new parish. The Rev. Raymond Gagnon, who previously served as pastor of both churches, will act as pastor of Saint Gabriel. “The buildings are staying where they are, and they’re keeping the names they have,” Gagnon said. “What changes is the group of people that form the community. They become a new entity with a new identity, and that’s where Saint Gabriel comes in.” The former parish churches will remain as the two worship sites for Saint Gabriel and will keep their names as Saint Paul Church and Saint Mary of the

Assumption Church, as Gagnon said. The parish headquarters, including its business office, telephone number and mailing address, will be located at Saint Paul. The merger officially took effect Monday and did not come as a surprise, Gagnon said. It had been in the works for about five years and began with a study and a discussion between parishes in the area. In 2009, he said, the group determined Saint Paul and Saint Mary would merge when it became necessary. In 2011, the parishes were twinned, which means their finances remained separate but they shared a pastor. The pastor of Saint Mary of the Assumption retired, and Gagnon, who had served as pastor at Saint Paul since 2004, became pastor of both parishes. “With the twinning process, that’s when you learn more about each other and start the process of merging,” he said. One of the most difficult changes for parishioners

during the merging process is scheduling Masses, he said. When Saint Paul and Saint Mary were twinned two years ago, they cut weekend Masses from three at each parish to two at each. “You have to adjust Mass times and people have to get used to going at a different time,” Gagnon said. “When you start messing around with people’s schedules, they are not always happy.” On the positive side, consolidating Masses means a larger congregation at each Mass, which Gagnon said leads to a better service. The merge has many additional benefits for both him and parishioners, he said. The pastor now only has one parish council and one finance board, which streamlines the meeting process. The parishioners will collaborate for future social activities and fundraisers. “They will work better because you get more see SAINT GABRIEL page 11

Imagine growing food for our community at the former Laconia State School!

Local food is fresher, grows the local economy, keeps land in production without raising infrastructure costs (thus saving taxpayers money), maintains the open landscape and natural beauty that is treasured by residents and visitors alike, and preserves some of the best agricultural soils in our area. Food grown at the former Laconia State School is about as local as we can get! Agriculture is one of the highest and best uses of this property, given its history and characteristics. In the 1800’s the Crockett family recognized the agricultural value of this large tract of farmland and established a multi-faceted farm on the shores of Lakes Opechee and Winnisquam. When the property was acquired by the State of NH in the early 1900’s, a working farm was an integral part of the new institution. Until 1971, this highly productive farm provided large quantities of food for several state-run facilities, as well as offering vocational opportunities that enabled some residents to secure paid employment with local farmers. As we look to the future, we imagine a landscape that once again has diverse and thriving agricultural ventures. In NH, agriculture is a growing sector of the economy, with nearly $7.6 million dollars in sales in Belknap County alone (2007 census data). Soils and topography dictate what types of farming would be most appropriate to individual sites on the property. Some areas can support crops such as hay, vegetables, and fruits. Other areas are best suited for livestock or forestry. The proximity of the property to a population center affords easy access to community involvement, agricultural business development, and educational opportunities for all ages. Other towns and cities in NH can, and have, imagined growing food for their communities on land held in common for their citizens. The town of Chester leases their town farm to a local farmer who raises vegetables, chickens, beef, and other products. Joppa Hill Educational Farm leases the town farm in Bedford, providing agricultural learning opportunities as well as a community garden. In Westmoreland, the former Cheshire County Complex is now home to the Maplewood Demonstration garden, a partnership with Antioch University New England that will provide food to community organizations. Can you imagine it here?

Task force looking at allowing chickens in residential areas seeking input on Thursday By Michael Kitch

LACONIA — The task force charged with clarifying sections of the zoning ordinance will hold a public meeting on Thursday, July 11 beginning at 10:30 a.m. at City Hall to consider proposals to permit keeping chickens in residential neighborhoods and to revise the definition of agriculture. The issues arose a year ago when a resident of Bay Street, in the residential single-family district, sought a variance to keep chickens, which falls under the definition of agriculture in the zoning ordinance. The Zoning Board of Adjustment discovered that the strict wording of the ordinance prohibits not only the keeping of chickens but even the growing of flowers, fruits and vegetables in most parts of the city for both commercial purposes or personal use. The proposal before the committee would permit keeping not more than five hen — but no roosters, capons or guinea hens — for the sole use of the household in residential districts. The breeding of chickens and sale of eggs would be prohibited. Nor

could chickens be slaughtered on the premises. Chickens would be kept in coops placed in rear or side yards at least 10 feet from the residence and 20 feet from any lot line. Chickens would not be allowed to roam free and manure, not more than one cubic yard, would be stored in a closed container. City Councilor Armand Bolduc (Ward 6), who farms in Gilford, warned that chickens would be a bad fit in residential neighborhoods. The manure is not a good thing,” he said, explaining that it is laced with ammonia, smells to high heaven and sticks to the feet. “You can’t get rid of the smell,” he warned. Chickens, he added, would attract varmints — weasels, foxes, coyotes and rats. Wondering why people would want to keep chickens, he said that without roosters, the hens would lay no eggs. “You can buy eggs at the supermarket for less than it will cost to raise chickens to lay them,” he remarked. Councilor Henry Lipman (Ward 3) was troubled that the task force was dealing with chickens rather than addressing the signage ordinance, which is also part of its immediate charge. The signage ordinance,

he noted, hinders development in the city, which he stressed has a “vulnerable tax base.” The Planning Board, Lipman said, “needs to prioritize.” As written the definition of agriculture makes no distinction between commercial and personal uses. In revising the ordinance a definition of “garden” as “the growing of flowers, fruits or vegetables” for personal consumption but not for commercial sale would be added. Gardens would be allowed throughout the city in all zoning districts. Those unable to attend the meeting may offer their comments and suggestions by sending a letter or e-mail to the Planning Department at 45 Beacon Street East, Laconia, NH 03246 or planning@city. The committee consists of three members of the ZBA — Steve Bogert, the chairman, Suzanne Perley and Michael Foote — three members of the Planning Board — Bill Contardo, Larry Guild and Jay Tivnan — and three members of the public — Steve Weeks, Sr., John Moriarty and Joe Driscoll, Jr.

TRAIN from page 1 look back. The blasts destroyed about 30 buildings, including a public library and Musi-Cafe, a popular bar that was filled with revelers, and forced about a third of the town’s 6000 residents from their homes. Much of the area where the bar once stood was burned to the ground. Burned-out car frames dotted the landscape. Sophie L’Heureux, a manager at Musi-Cafe, was woken up at home by the explosion. She said she

believed there were about 50 people in the bar, including many close friends. “I’m in survival mode right now. My priority is to try sleep if I can, eat if I can,” she said. “For the rest, it’s one minute, one day at a time.” The derailment raised questions about the safety of Canada’s growing practice of transporting oil by train, and was sure to bolster arguments that a proposed oil pipeline running from Canada across the U.S. — one that Canadian officials badly want —

would be safer. Raymond Lafontaine, who believed he lost three members of his family, including his son, said he was angry with what appeared to be lack of safety regulations. “We always wait until there’s a big accident to change things,” said Raymond Lafontaine, who had three missing relatives. “Well, today we’ve had a big accident, it’s one of the biggest ever in Canada.” The fires sparked by the exploding tanks burned see next page

PSNH finds power line sagging from heat & high demand caused Friday outage By Gal OBer


LACONIA — A spokesman for Public Service of New Hampshire said yesterday that a “sagging section” of a power line caused the first power outage that hit the Gilford and Laconia around 3 p.m. Friday afternoon, causing 7,000 people to lose electricity. Media Relations Manger Martin Murray said a section of line sagged because of the heat and high electrical demand and made contact with a tree

Clarification: House boat is docked at Bear Island, not anchored off it

The solar-powered houseboat launched last Friday by Claude von Rosgen of Carlisle, Mass., will be tied to a dock at a camp on Bear Island this summer when he’s not taking it out on Lake Winnipesaukee. A headline and a caption in Saturday’s paper may have given the impression that it would be anchored off from the island, not tied up at a dock.

for two days, impeding investigators from reaching some of the “hot spots,” including the area near the destroyed Musi-Cafe. “It’s a zone that we’ve started to work on and we’ll work on it more in the hours to come,” Richard said. The area remained part of a criminal investigation and investigators were exploring all options, including the possibility that someone intentionally tampered with the train, Richard said. Canadian Transport Minister Denis Lebel said the train was inspected the day before the accident in Montreal and no deficiencies were found. Lebel defended his government against criticisms it had cut back on rail safety measures. He said the rail remains a safe way to transport goods the vast majority of the time. Earlier Monday, Queen Elizabeth II expressed deep sadness over the disaster, saying in a message through the federal government that the loss of life “has shocked us all.” Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper toured the town Sunday and compared it to a war zone. The train’s owners said they believed brake failure was to blame. “Somehow those brakes were released, and that’s what is going to be investigated,” Joe McGonigle, Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Railway’s vice president of marketing, told The Associated Press on Sunday. Officials were also looking at a locomotive blaze on the same train a few hours before the derailment. Meanwhile, crews were working to contain 100,000 liters (27,000 gallons) of light crude that spilled from the tankers and made its way into nearby waterways. There were fears it could flow into the St. Lawrence River all the way to Quebec City. Quebec’s Environment Ministry Spokesman Eric Cardinal said officials remained hopeful they could contain more than 85 per cent of the spill. Local fire chief Denis Lauzon said firefighters in a nearby community were called to a locomotive blaze on the same train a few hours before the derailment. Lauzon said he could not provide additional details about that fire since it was in another jurisdiction. McGonigle confirmed that a fire was reported after the first engineer tied up and went to a local hotel. “We know that one of our employees from our engineering department showed up at the same time to assist the fire department. Exactly what they did is being investigated so the engineer wasn’t the last man to touch that train, we know that, but we’re not sure what happened,” McGonigle said.

beneath it. He said that power outage lasted about 70 minutes and power crews removed the tree. The second power outage at 7 p.m. was caused by a failed splice and effected the same customer area. Murray said they believe the second outage could have been caused by the stressed placed on existing lines by the first outage. The second outage, that affected the same area of McIntyre Circle to Ellacoya State Park, the Weirs, Governors Island, the Laconia Municipal Airport and three neighborhoods in Gilford, took 3 1/2 hours to restore, said Murray, because the entire section of line needed to be replaced. He said a crew walked the entire line yesterday morning to check for additional vegetation and splices that could be at risk for future failure. Murray said there was a “separate, third, outage” that effected customers in the Hilliard Road area of Laconia but at 1:05 p.m. yesterday he was still look-

ing into the cause. Gilford Fire Chief Stephen Carrier said yesterday his department responded to two electrical-related calls Friday afternoon. One that reported an “transformer explosion” on Flower Drive at 3 p.m. (off Sleeper Hill Road) and one for a downed power line on Pinecrest Drive where a line fell and shorted the electrical panel on a residents home. He said he doesn’t know if the power outage caused either event or if the two events were the result of the power failure.

Help paying for Rx - Part 2 For those people who are on Medicare, “Part D” offers the ability to select a drug insurance plan from any one of a number of providers. The options, or variables, are many. Some plans offer relatively low monthly premiums, but others are quite expensive. Some offer lower premiums but have higher deductibles. Copays vary as well. For these reasons, Medicare has developed an excellent website ( part-d/index.html) where individuals can compare insurance company coverage and cost, based on the medicines the individual is taking. Most people have heard about the coverage gap, commonly called the “donut hole” in Medicare Part D. When a person has incurred $2,970 in drug costs during the year (which is the combined cost paid by the insurance company and the policy holder), they then go into the coverage gap. While in the gap, their co-pay for brand name drugs will be 47.5 percent of the drugs retail cost, and 79 percent of the price for generic drugs. This continues until a total value of the drugs purchased amounts to $4,750. At that time, what is called “catastrophic” coverage takes over and co-pays are reduced dramatically . . . until the new year, when the whole process starts anew. For those people with limited resources, Social Security offers what is called “Extra Help”, or low income support for the individual’s Part D insurance. To qualify, an individual’s income must be $17,235 or less, $23,265 if married and living together. If qualified, a modest monthly premium is provided, copays are reduced, and the coverage gap is eliminated. Social Security indicates that the “Extra Help” provision can save a person an average of about $4,000 per year. For more information about this program you can access this website, http://www. . The statewide Service Link organization has an office in Laconia. They are an excellent resource serving the Belknap County area, and they have assisted countless citizens in their Medicare Part D search process. They may be reached at 528-6945. As a side note, while Medicare Part D has a defined enrollment period at the end of the year, there are some situations that allow individuals to enroll in a plan beyond the open enrollment period. For more information you may contact Service Link or access the following website, http://www. pdf/11219.pdf Medicaid, also called Title XIX, provides health coverage to children, pregnant women, parents, seniors and people with disabilities. The minimum income level for eligibility is 133 percent of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL). How-

ever, in calculating eligibility the state Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) takes into account all income and assets, and a series of deductibles, to arrive at individual or household eligibility. If approved, the person/family may be eligible for doctor, hospital, dentist, vision, and other medical benefits, including prescription medicines. Those who think they may qualify for Medicaid benefits, may call New Hampshire’s DHHS office at 1-800852-3345 X5254. For those who are internet savvy, there are a number of internet links. However, the most direct link, and the quickest to determining possible eligibility is . This site is very user friendly and can provide you with an answer as to whether or not there’s a possibility you may qualify for cash assistance, medical services, food stamps, or Medicare. It is recommended that families with children under the age of 19, who do not have health insurance, either call DHHS at the above number, or access the Internet link to determine if, based on their income, they might be eligible to qualify for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Depending on household income, insurance may be provided at partial or no cost for children’s coverage. Those who qualify for Medicaid may receive their prescription medicines as part of that program. This website will link the reader to more information on eligibility and benefits. Another very useful discount program is called RX Outreach. It is a non profit organization, a fully licensed mail order pharmacy, that offers prescription medicines to uninsured and underinsured individuals and families, as well as those who have limited prescription drug coverage. They are often used by those who either fail to qualify for direct help from a drug company, or the medicines they need are not part of a drug company’s patient assistance program. The reader may access this website, http://www. . Walmart gained some recognition for their pharmacies when they came out with their program to provide a large number of generic medicines, charging $4 for a one month supply, $10 for three months. Once a drug company’s patent expires on its brand name drug, other companies can provide their generic version of that medicine.

LETTERS Women’s section of county jail is accident waiting to happen To The Daily Sun, You article referring to the proposed county correctional facility seems to be lacking and missing some very valid points. Headlining the article as a “new county jail” may just lead people to believe it’s going to be a jail. That might certainly, in my opinion, prejudice people who weren’t at the Belknap County Commission presentation when Ricci/Greene Associates presented their findings and recommendations for the proposed new correctional Facility. To say that Republicans don’t have the votes for the new correctional facility is also giving us a skewed picture based on the quotes within the article. Were just three of those on the convention interviewed for this article? There were other representatives on the convention who agreed wholeheartedly with the presentation and what is needed now. How much more money will be “wasted” on studies to determine that the present building should be torn down? In my opinion, it might be more accurate to say that the presentation by the warden, gave a very grim view of the present state of the building, to those of us present in very clear, indepth and concise terms couldn’t have been more to the point. Sounds more as if we are perfectly content to go back to the times of ‘Les Miserables’,

‘Devil’s Island’ (movie: ‘The Great Escape’), ‘The Man in the Iron Mask’, ‘Don Quixote’ and ‘Oliver Twist’ by Charles Dickens. Is the convention willing to take us back to a time when we treated those who are incarcerated in such inhuman conditions? At the meeting it sure sounded as if the present facility has numerous code violations to make it just about impossible to be “housed” or work there. It also sounded as if the present facility is not just about ready to fall down, but should and must be torn down in the near future. Would those members of the convention, who are against moving ahead with plans, want one of their family members to be housed in such deplorable conditions? How has the facility passed INSPECTIONS over the years? Sounds like a potential death trap to me! The women’s section upstairs is just an accident or death waiting to happen. Are those representatives who are against building another correctional facility that callous as to the needs of the guards, other staff and the inmates? We don’t treat our beloved pets in a manner such as was described that night. Why in the world would we treat human beings in such a disgraceful manner or disregard? Bernadette Loesch Laconia

LETTERS You know Zimmerman but bet you’ve never heard of George Thomas

We’ve reached point where religion is viewed as harmful to society

To The Daily Sun, Bernadette Loesch engaged in paradoxical, progressive reasoning in her reply to my letter about the left clinging to a 1950’s, 1960’s race mentality. I provided a variety of examples of how the media used quotes and photos and took them out of context in an effort to convict Zimmerman prematurely, in the court of public opinion. Her reply to those examples was to ask me why I took them out of context. How does one respond to such a Yogi Berra like reply any better than the AFLAC duck’s reply, “whaaaaa?” So let me ask Bernadette to explain the actions of the left as I offer some more examples of extreme liberal bias. Why would prominent Democrats like Gov. Jennifer Granholm and congressman Bobby Rush don hoodies while Jamie Foxx walks about wearing a T-shirt with Trayvon’s picture on it, if they are not promoting a fallacy that white on black crime is still omnipresent in this society and without proper lawful prosecution? Why would Hassan Adeeb, a Maryland teacher, use a “current affairs” lesson plan which compared the killing of Trayvon to the killing of a 14 year old black boy, Emmitt Till for allegedly flirting with a white girl? The lesson included information from “Think Progress”, a far left think tank and the commentary from former MSNBC attack dog, Ed Schultz. Why let students follow the trial first, ask questions and come to their own conclusions using objective, critical thinking skills? Because that would interfere with the indoctrination of students into their activist agenda on racialism. One can almost envision MSNBC host and race baiter, the Rev. Al Sharpton, nodding his head in approval. Where is the outrage by compassionate, understanding and tolerant modern day liberals, ideals that Ber-

To The Daily Sun, When case precedent becomes so far removed from the Constitution from which judges are supposedly basing their ruling on; that you can’t recognize one from the other, it’s time for the average Joe to take a look at the Constitution and the ruling and see for himself how they square. I’d like to look at Abington School District v. Schempp, the 1963 U.S. Supreme Court case that rendered school sponsored Bible reading in public schools “unconstitutional”. In Abington School District v Schempp, the Supreme Court ruled that school-sponsored Bible reading, even though the student could opt out with a note from his parents, violated the establishment clause of the 1st Amendment to the Constitution, that even though the 1st Amendment as well guaranties the free exercise of religion, the court judged that, that free exercise was subject to limitations and arbitrarily judged that schoolsponsored Bible reading fell outside of that guarantee. Or if not arbitrary they judged that this exercise was harmful to at least some of the students. Let’s look at what the amendments to U.S. Constitution say concerning this: Within the 1st Amendment it says, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;”. The 9th Amendment says, “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” The 10th Amendment says, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” Within the 14th Amendment it says “No state shall” “deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” This amendment was passed to guarantee newly freed slaves equal protection under the law. The court used the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment, quoted above, to apply the establishment clause, also above, to the states. Note that in the 1st Amendment, the establishment clause is specific to Congress where as the free exercise clause is broad. The 9th Amendment, also above, forbids any right written by way of amendment from being interpreted in a manner that will undervalue other rights, as the use of the 14th Amendment to disparage the free exercise of religion guaranteed in the 1st Amendment In a functioning democracy, state and local govern-

nadette decries we all should live by, with regard to black on black crimes in places like Chicago, Detroit and DC? Why does the decaying mainstream media not even bother to mention that there is far more black on white crime than vice versa and ignore it as though it no longer exists? I’ll bet you dollars to donuts that Bernadette has never even heard of George Thomas. Until a couple days ago, I had never heard of him. Thomas is black and he and four other blacks including one woman, carjacked, abducted, tortured, raped and murdered a young white couple, Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom, in the most horrific way imaginable. If you have the stomach for it, you can read the gut wrenching, heart breaking details in Jack Kerwick’s July 3rd column at Hey Bernadette, do you suppose that virtually every living, breathing person in this country would be aware of this sickening case if Christian and Newsom had been black and their assailants white? And please, no more progressive, paradoxical poppycock answers if you please. Racialism is a core component of the progressive disease that is “political correctness”. It’s the kind of secular humanism and moral relativism that causes blood to shoot out of ones eyes. It is how modern day liberals can ignore the acts of the George Thomas types of the world and still sleep with a clear conscience. How’s that for “perceived injustice”, Bernadette? Do me a favor and go read Walter William’s “Proclamation of Amnesty and Pardon”. It just may cure you of your apparent “white guilt” and allow you to have that open mind that you want conservatives types like me to have. Russ Wiles Tilton

ments most closely reflect the free will of the people. If the Warren Court were interested in making a constitutional ruling and were not pursuing some other agenda that previous courts patiently pioneered, it should have upheld The Abington School District’s right to have these exercises. For in order for the court to accomplish its desired affect it needed to change the specificity of the establishment clause, a major change in its meaning. This was done for them by a previous court in a previous ruling, this is how they do it with out appearing to be revolutionary. They then ignore the 9th and 10th Amendments completely and disparaged the peoples protection from Congress “prohibiting the free exercise” of religion. In doing this and in other similar court decisions, within a generation and a half they have changed the character of the American people, for the compulsory nature of education and the cost of private education being prohibitive to most, most of our children attend public schools. Those who graduate from high school spend 12 years, at an average 1078 hours per year, in a school system that God has been expelled from. These decisions have turned our public schools into purveyors of atheism and the expounders of all sorts of evil doctrines, which was the natural result of these decisions, for social rules governing the conduct of a people always flow from some type of apriori assumption. If you can’t assume God, you are forced to assume the other. The neutral stance would have been to allow the FREE exercise of religion to continue. George Washington and his right hand man, Alexander Hamilton would have considered these decisions treasonous. Read it for yourself in the 27th-29th paragraphs of George Washington’s farewell address. Here’s an excerpt, “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens.” Can you see it? The issue is not that the practice of school sponsored Bible reading has been unconstitutional, but that the attitude has changed from viewing religion as an indispensable support, to that of, it is harmful. This will prove to be the undoing of our nation if it is not turned around. John Demakowski Franklin

The 60s? This ain’t your daddy’s Republican Party any more To The Daily Sun, I don’t know whether to laugh or cry when I read Bob Meade writing that 80 percent of the Republicans in Congress voted for the Civil Rights Act in 1964. It’s political false advertising — like putting a 767 next to a biplane and saying that all airplanes are the same. Where are those 80 percent to be found in today’s Republican party? They’re not. Those congressmen and senators couldn’t even be nominated in today’s version of the party. If they

were already in office they would lose primaries to opponents from the knuckle-dragging wing which currently holds the entire party by its shorthairs. This ain’t your daddy’s Republican party. Look at last year’s presidential primaries. In 2012 clownish buffoons like Bachman, Cain, Trump and Perry were all front-runners. 40 years ago they would have been laughed off the debate stage by fellow Republicans. see next page

LETTERS Backlash continues in response to religious war against women To The Daily Sun, The misogynist and religious war against women is not going well at all. Time and time again, tea party plagued states pass unconstitutional laws regarding abortion and family health care clinics. The strategy is to close as many clinics as possible and limit pregnancy termination to 20 weeks. Sometimes 18. Unfortunately for the puritanical party, that time frame is unconstitutional after Roe v. Wade. After the tea party rode into power on economic platforms, once in power, the Trojan Horse’s doors opened at night and all the screaming religious banshees took to the legislative halls throughout America. Wars against women, workers, and voters were declared. Seven of 10 support Roe v. Wade so many were aghast as the minions of the religious right assaulted the laws protecting a woman’s right to choose. And the clinics. But alas, the Imams, Ayatollahs and Mullahs of the Christian right are now being tarred, feathered and pilloried. Right wing abortion laws have been struck down by the courts in eleven states in the last year: Oklahoma, Georgia, Mississippi, Arizona, North Carolina, Kansas. Idaho, Texas (2011), Idaho, Arkansas, and North

Dakota. Furthermore, a federal court has ruled that emergency contraception must be made available over the counter for all ages. Many of these cases will eventually end up at the U.S. Supreme Court where a 5-4 majority ruling against the laws is a likely outcome on most of these various restrictive laws. It all depends on Justice Kennedy really. But Roberts could be a surprise, too. After Oklahoma appealed, the court sent a list of questions regarding their blocked RU-486 ban. So, it has begun and we progressives and moderates hope for an outcome as uplifting as the DOMA and Prop 8 rulings which crushed the tea party and the religious right. In related matters, a Reaganappointed judge struck down the use of anti-abortion license plates in North Carolina because pro-choice ones were not also offered by the state. And a Louisiana abortion doctor liability law designed to drive abortion providers out of practice was also struck down. So all in all, things are looking up as the backlash continues against the Christian Sharia. James Veverka Tilton

Thanks, over 50 kids got scholarships to Prescott Farm summer camp To The Daily Sun, Prescott Farm has so much to be thankful for this summer camp season! We are at our highest registration rate ever. This is mainly due to all the help we have received with our Camp Scholarship Fund (CSF). We can’t thank enough the local businesses and people that have supported our CSF this summer, as it has offered so many more children the opportunity to attend our camps that otherwise wouldn’t have been able to. We believe every child deserves the chance to experience environmental education and our CSF, supported by many generous community organizations, is designed to help families who would not otherwise be able to attend our camp. Full and partial scholarships are available, but funds are limited on a first come, first serve basis. The demand this year exceeded far beyond what we had available, but with help from Meredith Village Savings Bank, WLNH Children’s Auction, PSNH, Belknap County Master Gardeners, Bank of New Hampshire, Pike Industries, Mill Falls at the Lake and many other generous individuals, we were able to provide over 50 children with scholarship assistance! Again, we want to thank those businesses and individuals, because this couldn’t have been possible without their support! The Lakes Region community is

strong, both businesses and individuals truly can make a difference when working together. Our WildQuest day camps are licensed by the State of N.H. and led by experienced environmental educators. Our goal is to foster an appreciation and understanding of the natural and cultural history of Prescott Farm, and by extension, children’s own special places as well. We believe that a camp experience with us will enhance your child’s ecological awareness and provide fun learning opportunities in a community-minded and non-competitive atmosphere. Camp always includes nature activities, animal and plant identification, arts and crafts, quests, games, and hands-on learning. Most of the day is spent outdoors. Extended care can provide supervised playtime before and after regular camp hours. If you would like to support our CSF or have a child that may like to attend our summer camp, but are in need of scholarship assistance please contact us at 603-366-5695. Also, you may go online to our website, to view our latest WildQuest Summer Camp information. We look another great summer with you!

19 fallen Arizona firefighters honored at Sunday evening vigil in Laconia By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — More than 50 people turned out Sunday night at Opechee Park for a candlelight vigil held by the Laconia Fire & Iron Motorcycle Club to honor the memory of 19 firefighters who died last week while battling a wild fire in Arizona. Lt. Dave French, president of the club and a lieutenant with the Laconia Fire Department, said that he got the idea for the vigil from the club’s Nashua chapter, which had organized a vigil of its own. ‘’I thought there were enough people in the Lakes Region who would want to pay tribute to those firefighters who lost their lives in Arizona for us to hold a vigil here. For us, it’s like losing a member of our family and we wanted to do something to honor them,’’ said French. With a giant flag held by a ladder truck draped behind the rows of club members and Laconia firefighters,

Mike Kinane, a member of the Laconia club and a former wildland firefighter from Southern California, read the names of the 19 victims, with a minute of silence observed after each name was read. The event concluded with the Hotshots Prayer, which ends ‘’For if this day on the line/ I should lose my life/ Lord bless my hotshot crew/my children and my wife.’’ The 19 firefighters who died were members of an elite unit of wildland firefighters known as the Granite Mountain Hotshots, and several were members of the Fire & Iron Motorcycle Club of Arizona. French said that the local club has 10 members and that some of its members have taken trips to other parts of the country Arizona where they rode with members of the Arizona club. ‘’Some of those who lost their lives rode with our club members. So for some us it’s a very personal tragedy.’’ said French.

Police say failure to stop at sign likely

cause of Saturday crash in Gilford GILFORD — A Bridgewater woman was ejected from her Chrysler Town and County van during a collision at the intersection of Hoyt Road and Gilford Avenue at 9 a.m. Saturday. Gilford Police said Lacy Barrows of 2320 River Road was taken by ambulance to Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia, from where she was taken by helicopter to Massachusetts General Hospital with what police described a serious injuries. The other person in the collision was Douglas Page of 719 Gilford Avenue in Gilford. Page was driving a 2011 Chevrolet Silverado and was uninjured.

Det. Sgt. Christopher Jacques said Barrows was exiting Hoyt Road and Page was headed east toward Gilford Village. Preliminarily, he said, evidence at the scene suggests she didn’t stop at the stop sign at the end of Hoyt Road. He said it appears Barrow’s van hit the passenger side of Page’s truck. The Belknap Regional Accident Investigation Team investigated and one lane of Gilford Avenue was closed for several hours. Jacques said as of mid-day yesterday Barrows was listed in stable condition at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. ­—­Gail­Ober

EGYPT from page 2 said troops descended on them and opened fire unprovoked as they finished dawn prayers. “I was in the last row praying. They were firing from the left and right,” said Nashat Mohammed, who had come from southern Egypt to join the sit-in and was wounded in the knee. “We said, ‘Stop, we’re your brothers.’ They shot at us from every direction.” After a battle lasting about three hours, at least 51 protesters were killed and 435 wounded, most from live ammunition and birdshot, emergency services chief Mohammed Sultan told to the state news agency. At a nationally televised news conference, Army Col. Ahmed Mohammed Ali said police and troops came under “heavy gunfire” at around 4 a.m. and attackers on rooftops opened fire with guns and Molotov cocktails. A soldier and two policemen were killed, and 42 in the security forces were wounded, eight critically, he said. While he said troops had a right to defend the facility, Ali did not directly explain how the protester deaths occurred. He expressed condolences but offered no apologies for the deaths. A collection of video of the clashes

provided by the military to Egyptian TV showed protesters on rooftops lobbing projectiles at troops below, including firebombs and toilet seats. It also showed some armed protesters firing at close range at the troops, but it did not show what the military did. It was also not clear at what time in the fighting the videos were shot. It included aerial views of the clashes. Several witnesses from outside the protest said the gunfire started when troops appeared to move on the camp. University student Mirna elHelbawi told The Associated Press that she watched from her 14th floor apartment overlooking the scene, after she heard protesters banging on metal barricades, a common battle cry. El-Helbawi, 21, said she saw troops and police approaching the protesters, who were lined up on the street behind a make-shift wall. The troops fired tear gas, the protesters responded with rocks, she said. Soon after, she heard the first gunshots and saw the troops initially retreat backward — which she said led her to believe the shots came from the protester side. She saw Morsi supporters firing from rooftops, while the troops were also shooting.

Tilton man’s eye said in jeopardy after fireworks cake mishap

TILTON — Police Chief Robert Cormier said the family of a Vista Heights Road man reported he could loose his left eye after a fireworks display struck him in the face. Cormier said James Virgin, 48, of 45 Vista Heights had ignited a 19-shot AAH firework cake and one of the charges hit him in the eye. He said the other 18 shots went into the air. Police said their initial investigation indicated the firework was anchored properly to the ground, that spectators were a safe distance away, and there was a hose nearby. He said the firework was purchased locally and

was a class C-rated device, meaning it was rated for consumers and not professionals. Cormier said Virgin was lucid and calm during the incident and told police that he thought the firework had a “quick fuse.” Virgin was transported by ambulance to Lakes Region General Hospital where he was transferred to Massachusetts General Hospital. Cormier said fireworks dealers recommend using an 18-inch punk or smoldering stick to set off all fireworks. — Gail Ober

ROBARGE from page 2 arraigned on that charge in Windham District Court in Brattleboro on Monday afternoon. The Brattleboro Reformer reported Robarge, who is being held without bail, refused to waive his rights to extradition. That means the state of New Hampshire now has 30 days to file a request for his return to the state to face the second-degree murder charge. His attorney, Mimi Brill, declined to comment. Fish and Game officers and New England K-9 Search and Rescue found the body of a woman Saturday in a wooded area in Unity. An autopsy Sunday confirmed the body was that of Kelly Robarge, and the cause of death was homicidal violence by undetermined causes. On June 27, the day she disappeared, Kelly Robarge had filed for a divorce

from Robarge. Shortly after she was reported missing, New Hampshire authorities had said they feared she had suffered serious injury or death. A vigil was held for her in Charlestown and a fundraising effort was being conducted in nearby Claremont. A plastic jug on the counter of Wade’s Place, an ice cream stand, had the sign “Help Bring Kelly Robarge Home Safe.” Once it was confirmed that her body had been found, the sign had been changed to “Help Us Lay Kelly to Rest Peacefully,” said Mercedes West, who works at the ice cream stand and goes to college with one of Robarge’s daughters. West said over $100 has been raised so far. A lot of people who don’t know the family or what happened have donated, she said. “We’re going to continue as long as we can to help out the family in their time of need,” she said.

LIBRARY from page one consulting firm engaged by the commission to assist with the planning process. The plan envisions a twostory, 94,450-square-foot facility estimated to cost $42.5-million. It would have 180 beds, plus five for inmates requiring medical care. A third of the beds — 44 for men and 16 for women — would be reserved for inmates awaiting trial, on work release, undergoing treatment or on electronic moni-

toring. The remaining 120 beds — 88 for men and 32 for women — would be allotted to maximum, medium, and minimum security inmates as well as those with special needs. The major feature of the project is the community corrections component, an array of therapeutic services, educational programs and vocational training to prepare inmates for a successful return to the community.

Hamel said that since approximately 20-percent of the county property tax commitment is borne by Laconia the project would place an onerous burden on the city’s taxpayers. Councilor Henry Lipman (Ward 3), chairman of the Finance Committee who has already voiced his concerns to the commission, roughly calculated that the city’s share of the debt service and operating costs of the facility as proposed would match or exceed the limit on the amount to be raised by property taxes set by the local property tax cap. Acknowledging that there are “significant deficiencies” at the existing county jail, Lipman said that the commission should be asked to “start with what property taxpayers can afford.” Councilor Brenda Baer (Ward 4) suggested that the council copy its letter to the county convention members.

Ex-buddy says he saw Bulger shoot 2

BOSTON (AP) — The former righthand man of James “Whitey” Bulger testified Monday that he saw the alleged mobster open fire on a car and kill two men in 1982. Kevin Weeks took the witness stand at Bulger’s racketeering trial and said he saw Bulger extort multiple businessmen and drug dealers for a cut of their profits. Weeks said he first developed a friendship with Bulger in the 1970s while he was working as a bouncer at Triple O’s, a South Boston bar where Bulger did business as the leader of the Winter Hill Gang. Soon, he said, he was working as an enforcer, driving around South Boston and picking up cash from local bookmakers Bulger and his gang were extorting. “Sometimes I’d beat somebody up,” he said. In May 1982, Weeks said, he went

from being muscle to helping Bulger in a murder. The target was Edward “Brian” Halloran, a man who Bulger had heard was cooperating with authorities. “Brian Halloran was talking to the FBI about Jim Bulger and some murders,” Weeks said. Weeks said that after another Winter Hill member told Bulger he had spotted Halloran on a pay phone, Bulger drove to one of the gang’s hangouts in a “hit car.” Bulger was wearing a wig and fake moustache, he said. Bulger told him to drive to the waterfront and wait there, Weeks said. A short while later, Bulger drove up, with a man wearing a ski mask lying in the back seat. Weeks said the man waved to him, but he said he did not know for sure who it was. Weeks said Bulger handed him a see next page

did a wonderful job,” Gagnon said. “He stayed around for a couple hours after and met just about everybody who showed up.” The event’s success demonstrates one of the benefits of the new combined parish, he said. “Basically, when you get more people working together, it makes for a better dynamic,” Gagnon said. “This was a chance for all of us to take a good look at what it means to be a church and to commit ourselves to the vision of what our ancestors had of what Saint Gabriel wants us to do, which is to bring Christ’s message to the world.”

who were allegedly killed by Bulger and the gang. He served five years in prison after pleading guilty to being an accessory to five murders. Bulger stared straight ahead during much of Weeks’ testimony and only glanced at him occasionally. Weeks also described how Bulger acquired a liquor store in South Boston. Prosecutors say Bulger forced Stephen Rakes to sell his liquor store to him in 1984 to use as a headquarters for his gang and as a source of “legitimate” income. Weeks denied that the gang forced Rakes to sell the store, saying Rakes had agreed with an offer from Bulger to buy the store for $100,000. He said when they arrived at Rakes’ house to close the deal, Rakes said his wife didn’t want to sell the store and complained about the selling price. “He was trying to shake us down,” Weeks said. At the time, Rakes’ two young daughters were in the room and Bulger was bouncing one of the girls on his lap, Weeks said. He said he pulled a gun out of his waistband and put it on the table. The girl on Bulger’s lap reached for the gun, Weeks said. Bulger then told him to put it away. Weeks said Bulger told Rakes he couldn’t back out of the sale. “At that point, we went through with the deal,” he said. “We didn’t go to him to buy the store. He came to us. It wasn’t your regular extortion,” Weeks said. Rakes, who was in the courtroom for Weeks’ testimony, later disputed his account and said he was forced to sell his store to Bulger. “Kevin continues to lie, as usual, because that’s what he has to do,” he said. “My liquor store was never for sale — never, never, never.”

AIRPLANE CRASH from page 2 The students had been in the rear of the aircraft, where many of the most seriously injured passengers were seated, Hersman said. The NTSB also said part of the jet’s tail section was found in San Francisco Bay, and debris from the seawall was carried several hundred feet down the runway, indicating the plane hit the seawall on its approach. Investigators have said Flight 214 was flying “significantly below” its target speed during approach when the crew tried to abort the landing just before the plane smashed onto the runway. Authorities do not know yet whether the pilot’s inexperience with the Boeing 777 and landing it at San Francisco’s airport played a role. The airline acknowledged Monday in Seoul that

the pilot at the controls had flown that type of plane for only a short time and had never before landed one at that airport. Asiana spokeswoman Lee Hyomin said pilot Lee Gang-guk had logged nearly 10,000 hours operating other planes but had only 43 hours in the 777, a plane she said he was still getting used to. It’s not unusual for veteran pilots to learn about new aircraft by flying with more experienced colleagues. Another pilot on the flight, Lee Jeong-min, had 12,390 hours of flying experience, including 3,220 hours on the 777, according to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport in South Korea. Lee Jeong-min was the deputy pilot helping Lee Gang-guk get accustomed to the 777, according to Asiana Airlines.

If you have contemplated dental implants as a choice for replacing one or more missing teeth, here are a few things you should know. First, dental implants are an excellent option for tooth replacement. Restorations built on implants look and feel like your natural teeth, so they allow you to eat and speak with comfort and confidence. Second, implants are not for everyone. You need to be in generally good health and have adequate bone (size, shape, and location) to support the implant. If you are losing your teeth to gum disease, don’t despair – dental implants are generally resistant to gum disease. The success rate of implants is high assuming an ongoing commitment to professional oral hygiene services and to thorough, effective homecare. Finally, implants involve surgical procedures and require multiple visits for completion of the restorative work. The entire treatment from start to finish may take from 6 months to a year, so you must have patience. Dr. Felt has more than 25 years of experience in placing and restoring dental implants. Ask about putting this technology to work for you. For more information, check the links on the website listed below.

from preceding page a two-way radio, told him to watch Halloran in a restaurant, then let him know when Halloran was coming out. Weeks said he told Bulger, “The balloon’s rising,” as Halloran started to leave the restaurant, a reference to Halloran’s nickname, “Balloonhead.” When Halloran walked outside, Weeks said he told Bulger, “The balloon’s in the air.” Halloran got into a blue Datsun driven by a friend, Michael Donahue. Weeks said he saw Bulger pull up to the car. “He slid across the front seat and he yelled out, ‘Brian!’ and he proceeded to start shooting,” Weeks said. The car Halloran and Donahue were in drifted across the road and hit something, Weeks said. Halloran then got out of the car, and “Jim Bulger just started shooting right at him,” Weeks said. “His body was bouncing on the ground.” Both Halloran and Donahue were killed. Weeks said he had never met Donahue, and he was not a target of the shooting. Both Bulger and the person in the back seat fired at the car, Weeks said. When he called Bulger later that night, Bulger said he was eating dinner with his girlfriend and urged him to “go get something to eat,” Weeks said. Donahue’s son Thomas, who has attended every day of the monthlong trial with his mother and two brothers, said hearing Weeks testify about the killing of his father had shaken his family. “It tears you apart hearing the horrific story,” he said. Weeks, who was a close associate of Bulger’s for two decades, later became a government witness and eventually led authorities to the bodies of people

Local synagogue holding its annual Jewish Food Festival this Sunday LACONIA — Traditions, old and new, continue at the 15th annual Jewish Food Festival at Temple B’nai Israel in Laconia on Sunday, July 14 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The festival is about the taste and smells from the kitchens of Jewish mothers and grandmothers through the ages. This is not one dish at a time, not a meal at a time, but a huge array of all the textures and tastes that flood your senses when you are confronted with an array of cheese blintzes, stuffed cabbage and sweet and sour meatballs, matzo ball, cabbage and borscht soups, Moroccan chicken, chopped herring, liver, apricot couscous and Israeli salads, sandwiches of brisket, corned beef, pastrami and tongue, kugels, latkes, hummus, strudels, rugulah and more. The Jewish women who congregate in the temple kitchen, cook these traditional foods while sharing family history and stories. “I always form my matzo balls with two spoons”, “no, you have to mold them by hand”, “should we use schmaltz (chicken fat)?”, “Too much

fat,” I use margarine”, my Bubbie didn’t use margarine!” Add a touch of sugar to the blintz cheese”, shape them oblong”, no they should be square”. Master Chef Irene Gordon is the ultimate decision maker. Fold, chop, mix, talk, laugh, advise. And more than one husband or father has joined the cooking brigade, done the shopping, helped with packaging. Temple B’nai Israel’s take out service is available and includes most of the foods to be served on July 14. Preorder on line at or call 267-1935 to place an order. Orders over $60 include a copy of Temple B’nai Israel’s cookbook. This Festival is about more than food. People will find treasures at the Nearly New Boutique on the front lawn, the lemonade stand, run by the children of the congregation traditionally donates all profits to St. Vincent de Paul’s food pantry. The gift shop is full of new items, many for use for the High Holidays in early September. As for the traditional raffle, it has been see next page

Book-signing event on Saturday to benefit Conservation Trust CENTER HARBOR — Six New Hampshire authors will come together to “Spread the Love of the Lakes Region” at Bayswater Books on Saturday, July 13 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. as they sign their books and support the Lakes Region Conservation Trust. Headlining the event will be author and New Hampshire celebrity Fritz Wetherbee signing all of his books including the latest, Milestone, a collection of the New Hampshire stories he has written for WMUR-TV’s New Hampshire Chronicle. Joining Wetherbee will be Ruth Doan MacDougall signing her latest edition of 50 Hikes in the White Mountains, Mike Dickerman with his book White Mountains Hiking History, Jane Rice signing Bob

Fogg and New Hampshire’s Golden Age of Aviation, Sandwich poet Page Coulter with her book A River Called Bearcamp and Jeannette Buell autographing copies of her cookbook compiled from Lake Winnipesaukee island residents, Hungry for Summer. Representatives from the LRCT will be on hand to answer questions and LRCT Winnipesaukee Paddle Maps and Hiking Guides will be on sale at the event. The idea for the event came from store owner Michelle Taft, who wanted to draw attention to the importance of maintaining and protecting the wildlife and recreational resources of the Lakes Region by featuring New Hampshire authors, while also supporting the LRCT. Taft said “I think that the beauty of the Lakes Region is widely known, but the need to preserve

the unique character of the region is great and requires the attention of the public at large, as well. We thought that it would be a great opportunity to create an event to host New Hampshire authors and highlight the many aspects of what make the Lakes Region such a great place to live and visit.” Since 1979, the Lakes Region Conservation Trust (LRCT) has protected more than 20,000 acres of shore frontage, islands, forests and mountaintops, including the 5,381-acre Castle in the Clouds property. Bayswater will raise awareness of the importance of the natural resources in this area by hosting a “Spread the Love of the Lakes Region” multi-author event and donating a portion of the proceeds to the LRCT.

Jazz trio to entertain Thursday at Laconia’s Pitman’s Freight Room LACONIA — The Chris Bakriges Jazz Trio will perform Thursday at 8 p.m. at Pitman’s Freight Room. Admission is $12 and Pitman’s is a BYOB venue. Chris Bakriges, piano, and Rich Mollin, bass and vibraphonist Mark van Gulden will eam up for an evening of originals, fresh arrangements of jazz standards, and adventurous takes on music from other genres. They started their musical relationship and friendship several years ago, and enjoy challenging each other to find new ways to stretch musically while bringing spontaneity and musical discovery to every performance. Bassist Rich Mollin has longstanding ties with the legendary improviser Paul Bley, organist Jeff Palmer, and Spyro Gyro’s alumnae Jeremy Wall. Rich teaches at the State University of New York’s Oneonta campus. Vibraphonist Mark van Gulden is music director at ArtisTree, a community arts center and gallery located in Woodstock, Vt.

Chris’s personal stamp puts him firmly within instrumental jazz while attracting new audiences in search of depth and creativity.

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis

enemies? Answer: quietly. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Busy people often feel important. Some say that this glorifies “busy” and that “busy” doesn’t equal “important.” Then why are busy people so in demand? Making commitments does make you important to the others involved. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Deferred dreams are often like submarines: invisible below the waves, until they unexpectedly torpedo your day. Bring your aspirations to the surface, and reclaim them to the world. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Don’t fight the old. It is unnecessary now to overturn the powers that be. This isn’t a time for revolution; it’s a time for exploration. Better to set off for new horizons than to waste energy trying to transform the old stomping ground. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 9). Something you thought was fun a few years back now gets new life. This revival puts joy in your work, and you’ll play differently, too. There’s business to clear up in August, and then you’re free to pursue a lucrative job. September educates you through travel. Lifestyle changes (perhaps involving a commute) help you rock 2014. Pisces and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 20, 11, 8 and 32


ARIES (March 21-April 19). Doubt has its place. It can be helpful -- as helpful as faith and at times even more so. It can prevent mistakes of overconfidence. Doubt can save the day. Of course, it’s something to keep in check. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There’s a fine line between showing concern and becoming a busybody. Be sure to ask more than once whether your advice or help is indeed needed -- and don’t be disappointed when they can handle things on their own. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your confrontational mood will bring about change. The change itself may be unnecessary; many of the best things in life are. But it will keep things interesting, so why not? CANCER (June 22-July 22). Oscar Wilde said, “I can resist anything except temptation.” Your powers of resistance are strong, but a great temptation will challenge them. Stop, take a deep breath, and consider the consequences carefully. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll find out what happens when you put all of your attention into one special interest: The awesome stuff becomes weird, and the weird stuff becomes awesome. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’re strong. You may wish you could be lazy, watch television all day and eat nothing but breakfast cereal. Alas, that’s not who you are. Once you get moving, you’ll remember why you choose “strong” again and again. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Thinking differently is harder than moving your body differently. But if you can learn a new dance or sport, you can learn a new thought process. Build it one habit at a time. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You feel good when you’re productive. It’s important to note, though, that your worth doesn’t come from your productivity. Do it for the joy it brings you and others. Don’t do it because you have to, but because you want to. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Are they trying to bring you down? It’s because they perceive you as being above them. It’s a sign that your power is on the rise. How do you use that power in a way that doesn’t make

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Tuesday, July 9, the 190th day of 2013. There are 175 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 9, 1943, during World War II, the Allies launched Operation Husky, their invasion of Sicily, with nighttime landings of American and British troops; a full-scale incursion by sea began in the small hours of July 10. (More than a month later, the Allies secured the island from the Axis.) On this date: In 1540, England’s King Henry VIII had his 6-month-old marriage to his fourth wife, Anne of Cleves, annulled. In 1776, the Declaration of Independence was read aloud to Gen. George Washington’s troops in New York. In 1816, Argentina declared independence from Spain. In 1850, the 12th president of the United States, Zachary Taylor, died after serving only 16 months of his term. (He was succeeded by Millard Fillmore.) In 1896, William Jennings Bryan delivered his famous “cross of gold” speech at the Democratic national convention in Chicago. In 1918, 101 people were killed in a train collision in Nashville, Tenn. The Distinguished Service Cross was established by an Act of Congress. In 1938, Supreme Court Justice Benjamin Cardozo died in Port Chester, N.Y., at age 68. In 1953, the MGM movie musical “The Band Wagon,” starring Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse, had its world premiere at New York’s Radio City Music Hall. In 1962, pop artist Andy Warhol’s exhibit of 32 paintings of Campbell’s soup cans opened at the Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles. In 1974, former U.S. Chief Justice Earl Warren died in Washington, D.C., at age 83. In 1986, the Attorney General’s Commission on Pornography released the final draft of its report, which linked hard-core porn to sex crimes. In 1992, Democrat Bill Clinton tapped Tennessee Sen. Al Gore to be his running mate. Former CBS News commentator Eric Sevareid died in Washington at age 79. Ten years ago: The Bush administration defended the war against Iraq, saying that information on Saddam Hussein’s alleged illicit weapons programs was solid even though one of President George W. Bush’s claims — that Iraq had sought uranium from Africa — was based on faulty evidence. Five years ago: Citing new DNA tests, prosecutors cleared JonBenet Ramsey’s parents and brother in the 1996 killing of the 6-year-old beauty queen in Boulder, Colo. Massachusetts One year ago: Facing sagging jobs numbers, President Barack Obama sought to recast the November election as a fight over tax fairness, urging tax cut extensions for all families earning less than $250,000 but denying them to households making more than that. The remains of 6 U.S. airmen lost over Laos in 1965 were laid to rest in a single casket at Arlington National Cemetery. Detroit’s Prince Fielder became only the second player, after Ken Griffey Jr., to win multiple titles in the All-Star Home Run Derby, thrilling the crowd at Kauffman Stadium with eight splash shots into the right-field fountain and beating Toronto’s Jose Bautista 12-7 in the final.

Michael Tougias Best-selling Author to Present Survival Story


July 10 at 7:00 pm

Author Michael Tougias will present a slide presentation of his book, “Fatal Forecast: An Incredible True Tale of Disaster and Survival at Sea”. In November 1980, two fishing vessels set out from Cape Cod to Georges Bank. The National Weather Service had forecast typical fall weather in the area, even though the organization knew its only weather buoy at George’s Bank was malfunctioning. Soon after the boats Michael Tougia reached the fishing ground, they were hit with s hurricane force winds and massive, 60-foot waves that battered them for hours. Using slides from the actual storm and rescue, Tougias will explain one of the most remarkable survival stories ever recorded. This is an edge-of-your-seat tale you won’t want to miss.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, July 9, 2013— Page 25


Dear Annie: This is my second marriage. My husband has two children from his first marriage and a stepdaughter. His first wife had several affairs. I feel it may have been due to his lack of support for her. He was always working and never had time for his wife and kids. We married five years after his divorce. My husband and I are happy, and he is devoted to me. But he continues to work a great deal, and I am often lonely. I know it would help to have my own outside interests and hobbies and to go out with my friends, but I miss the closeness I had with my first husband. We did everything together. The problem now is his kids. We have not spoken to them in nearly three years. When his oldest granddaughter sent us a graduation invitation, I sent her a text thanking her for inviting us. She wrote back, “Who is this? I do not recognize the number.” That really hurt me. I gave nine years of my life to that little girl, trying to be a good step-grandmother. I wrote her back and said, “Once upon a time, you called me Grandmommie. I still love and miss you.” I have heard nothing more from her. My husband’s children have no respect for their father because he was always gone. I tried to overcome that for many years, but it went sour. What can we do to get these problems corrected? Should we send a graduation gift? -- Hurting in Oklahoma Dear Oklahoma: First, while your relationship with these children seems distant, let’s not mix apples and oranges. Unless your phone number is programmed into this grandchild’s phone, your name would not come up when you texted, and she would not have known who was contacting her. You can call the children and grandchildren directly and ask how to warm up the relationship.

But we can’t promise anything will change unless your husband becomes more involved, and he does not seem inclined. But please send a graduation gift. It’s a start. Dear Annie: I am at my wits’ end. I have tried every angle imaginable to stop an employee from showing her butt crack. I even bought her a long T-shirt. She wore it once and says she can’t find it. Am I wrong to think that she should not be allowed to dress this way? She says that I am the only person who has a problem with it, but I’m simply the only one willing to speak up. Firing her is not an option. -- Fairfield, Conn. Dear Fairfield: If there is no consequence for dressing so unprofessionally, there is no reason for her to change her clothes. Dress codes should be enforced. We recommend you talk to whoever is in charge and ask that a dress code be established and consequences spelled out -- including termination for someone who repeatedly and deliberately refuses to adhere to the requirements of the job. This girl undoubtedly believes her exhibitionism is appealing. But it is actually a source of ogling and amusement at her expense. She should save it for after hours. Dear “No Hypocrite in Paducah, Ky.,” who is addicted to alcohol, criticized family members for being addicted to food. He said, “How is it more legitimate to grab a doughnut when under stress than to pour myself a cocktail?” There is a HUGE difference. I grew up in a home where both of my parents were alcoholics. Alcohol changes a person’s behavior toward others. Food does not. I would much rather have had obese parents than emotionally damaging alcoholics. I wouldn’t have needed so many years in therapy. -- Lynn in Louisville
