BERLIN — Republican presidential hopeful Gary Johnson spent some time in Berlin on Monday as part of his effort to focus his campaign in the Granite State. Johnson said he is putting his chips on the table in New Hampshire and laying his primary fate in New Hampshire’s hands in an effort to gain some added attention in the crowded field of would-be nominees. Although he’s been relatively overlooked by national media and excluded from early debates because he didn’t meet polling standards, Johnson says he’s not complaining. “I think it’s a process. I think at a certain point the light shines bright on whatever it is that you’re doing.” What he’s doing is touring the state talking about what he believes is wrong in the country and sharing how he would solve those problems. Johnson says he is “offering up real live solutions.” Among those solutions are promises to submit a balanced budget to Congress and veto spending that isn’t balanced. Balancing the budget is something he feels makes sense not just fiscally, but also for national security. “The greatest threat to national


Michael Smith, 50, of Berlin, was indicted on a charge of criminal threatening. He is accused of pointing a gun at Amy Levesque and threatening to kill her on July 14 in Berlin. A Gorham man, accused of firing his gun in a residence and shooting himself, now faces felony charges. David Gray, 22, was indicted on a charge of reckless conduct. He is accused of firing a 9mm pistol in an apartment on April 9, while other people were in the proximity, placing them in danger of injury. A Jefferson man also faces a charge of reckless conduct for allegedly throwing a knife. Kirt Cameron, 48, is alleged to have thrown a steak knife at Lucille Cameron on June 8 in Jefferson. Thomas Shaheen, 18, of Carroll, was indicted on a charge of aggravated driving while intoxicated. He is accused of driving drunk and causing a collision on June 17 in


LANCASTER — A Colebrook man accused of a daylight robbery of the Rite Aid in Berlin was among those indicted by a Coos Grand Jury on August 19. Shawn Labonville, 41, was indicted on charges of theft by unauthorized taking and acts prohibited. He is accused of stealing Oxycontin valued at more than $1,500 from Rite Aid in Berlin on July 5. He is also alleged to have been in possession of Oxycontin when police caught up with him in Colebrook later that same day. A Northumberland man is accused of raping a woman in Lancaster. Randall Savage, 26, was indicted on a charge of aggravated felonious sexual assault. He is accused of engaging in sex with the woman while she was asleep on Feb. 5. He also faces a Class A misdemeanor charge of sexual assault.

security is our spending,” he said. Johnson pointed to European nations to illustrate his point. He noted that the German Chancellor recently announced that nation would have a balanced budget by 2014. “It suggests strength,” he said, adding that, the worse a country is at budgeting, in his opinion, suggests the level of its weakness, using Greece, Spain, and Ireland as examples. Pointing to his notoriety for many vetoes during his two terms as governor of New Mexico, Johnson said he opposes spending money on things that don’t make legislative sense. “I really did make a difference,” he said, pointing out that both parties have become accustomed to passing legislation that is common sense and doesn’t need to be law. “My whole tenure as governor was about the issues first and politics last.” Johnson said that lawmakers need to get away from the model of passing laws just to prove they did something, and really look at the issues. That starts with a good example, he explained. “I think the next President needs to be a penny pincher.” He advocated grounding Air Force One, reducing the spending of the entire

Colbert’s PAC is more than a gag (NY Times) — “Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow,” a political action committees known as Super PACs created by the comedian Stephen Colbert, may be a running gag on “The Colbert Report” on Comedy Central, but it is spending money as it sees fit, with little in the way of disclosure, just like its noncomedic brethren. Comedians, including Colbert in the last election, have undertaken faux candidacies. But his Super PAC riff is a real-world exercise, engaging in a kind of modeling by just doing what Super PACs do. And he has come under some real-world criticism for inserting himself in the political process so directly. Colbert, who lampoons conservative talk show hosts by pretending to be one, is now making fun of Super PACs by actually forming one. His committee spent money on advertising in Iowa during the run-up to the Ames straw poll, which took place Aug. 13. It’s as though Jonathan Swift took his satirical suggestion about Irish babies one step further and actually cooked one. “I am much taken by this and can’t think of any real parallel in history,” said Stephen Hess of the Brookings Institution. “Yes, comedians have always told jokes about elections, but this is quite different. This is a funny person being very serious, actually talking about process. What comedian talks about process?”


I can’t prove it, but I can say it.” —Stephen Colbert

TRIPOLI, Libya (NY Times) — Buoyed by their seizure of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi’s fortress-like compound in Tripoli, rebels sought to strengthen their control on Wednesday, placing a nearly $2 million bounty on the Libyan leader’s head and dispatching fighters toward one of his last bastions of support, his tribal hometown of Surt. In another sign that Colonel Qaddafi’s regime had come

unglued, loyalists holding more than 30 foreign journalists captive in a Tripoli hotel abruptly let them go. “We are free,” Matthew Chance, a CNN correspondent, told his network as he and the others were allowed to depart the Rixos hotel with the aid of Red Cross workers who took them away. The journalists had been held captive there since the weekend,

when rebel forces first invaded Tripoli in what has proved to be a decisive turn in the sixmonth-old conflict. But as a reminder that he remained on the loose, Colonel Qaddafi said in an address broadcast early Wednesday on a local Tripoli radio station that his retreat from the Bab alAziziya compound, which rebel forces overran on Tuesday, was only a tactical maneuver.

Sudden fame for city at earthquake’s epicenter

MINERAL, Va. — More than 100 years before the earth started shaking here on Tuesday, it was the earth — or, more precisely, what the town’s fathers found in it — that put Mineral on the map. This crossroads in central Virginia was Tolersville then. But the discovery of pyrite, sulfur, lead and other minerals turned it into a booming little town, and by 1902 it was incorporated and named after the only thing anybody knew it for. It got a new distinction just before 2 p.m. on Tuesday when an earthquake rattled the East Coast, and suddenly television screens all over the world were broadcasting a map of Virginia, with Mineral at the center. “It’s a small town. It’s a pretty tough town; the mining and all,” said Edwin Keller, 60, who grew up in Mineral, was mayor for 12 years and is also a former fire chief for the town. “But real friendly and good people.”

10th Mountain Division honors the past atop Mount Washington BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

Each year, on the second Thursday of August at 11 a.m. sharp, veterans of the 10th Mountain Division and their families from around the northeast assemble at the top of Mount Washington. They report to the summit of "The Rock Pile" to pay tribute to and to remember members of the 10th Mountain Division. The division was formed in 1943 and was deployed to fight on foot, skis and snowshoes in the roughest mountain terrain of Italy during World War II. After the war, the division was briefly re-designated as the 10th Infantry Division before it was inactivated. Sen. Bob Dole, a veteran of the 10th, saw to its reactivation in 1984. This year, the ceremony took place on Thursday, Aug. 11, and consisted of placing a wreath in front of the bronze plaque that commemorates these brave soldiers near the Tip Top House. The observance was introduced by the arrival of Nuke Edridge, 87, who climbed Mount Washington on foot, appearing just moments before the chaplain-led prayers, the flower placement, and the playing of taps. A roll call of veterans who passed away since last year's ceremony was announced as white flowers were laid below the wreath. A red flower was also placed in remembrance of the soldiers of the current 10th Mountain Division who died during the last year. The 10th Mountain Division is a light infantry division of the United States Army based at Fort Drum, N.Y. It is a subordinate unit of the XVIII Airborne Corps and the only division-sized element of the U.S. Army to specialize in fighting under harsh terrain and weather conditions. The division retains the "mountain" designation for historical purposes but is actually organized as a light infantry division. Over 50 members of the 10th Mount Division from Fort Drum participated in the moving event. "It was beyond a moving experience," Randy Davison, of Conway, who along with Therese, his wife, have attended the past five ceremonies. "We've gone up with our neighbor — Bruno daForno, 96, of Conway and Malden, Mass., who is member of the 10th Mountain Division. He's such an amazing guy. He met his wife on a snow train back in the 1940s. "It was an incredibly emotional day," he added. "There were a ton of soldiers from Fort Drum, and the tears were just coming down their faces when the list of veterans who had died was read off. I would highly recommend anyone going to next year's ceremony." The 10th Mountain Division has a storied history. According to the Fort Drum website ( m i l / A b o u t Fo r t D r u m / Pa g e s / hist_10thMountainHistory_lv3. aspx), "In November 1939, the Soviet Union invaded Finland.

Peg McWade of Groton, Mass., laid a white flower below the memorial wreath in remembrance of her late husband, Gordon "Tiny" McWade, 94, who passed away on February 11, 2011. His brother in arms, Bruno daForno, 96, of Conway and Malden, Mass., added an Edelweiss flower to the rocks above the wreath after spreading his longtime friend’s ashes on the summit. Also present at this year’s ceremony were John McDonald and Herbie Schneider of North Conway. (COURTESY PHOTO)

Realizing the importance of the peak, the Germans made seven counterattacks over two days. After the first three days of intense combat, the division lost 850 casualties to include 195 dead. The 10th had captured over 1,000 prisoners. The 10th was now in a position to breach the German's Apennine Mountain line, take Highway 65 and open the way to the Po Valley. "On April 14, 1945, the final phase of the war in Italy began. With the 85th and 87th leading, the 10th Mountain Division attacked toward the Po Valley spearheading the Fifth Army drive. The fighting was fierce with the loss of 553 mountain infantryman killed, wounded, or missing in the first day." After the war, the division was briefly redesignated as the 10th Infantry Division, a training unit, also seeing brief deployment to Germany before inactivation. The 10th was reactivated in 1985, according to the website Wickipedia and the division saw numerous deployments to contingencies throughout the 1990s. "Division elements participated in Operation Desert Storm (Saudi Arabia), Hurricane Andrew disaster relief (Homestead, Fla.), Operation Restore Hope and Operation Continue Hope (Somalia), Operation Uphold Democracy (Haiti), Operation Joint Forge (Bosnia and Herzegovina), Operation Joint Guardian (Kosovo), and several deployments as part of the Multinational Force and Observers (Sinai Peninsula)," the site states. "Since 2001, the division and its four combat brigades have seen numerous deployments to both Iraq and Afghanistan in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, respectively."

SSIL appreciates service To the editor: On August 3, group members of SSIL (Sight Services for Independent Living) a statewide, community based program sponsored by the Department of Education, division of Adult Learning and Rehabilitation, Services for the Blind and Visually Impaired, for adults age 55 or older with functional vision problems to maintain their independence at home and in the community, traveled to Thanksgivings Restaurant & Legends Pub, located at 128 Main St., Gorham. SSIL provides opportunities to talk with others who are experiencing or have experienced similar frustrations and solutions. Also, the program enables participants to get new information, learn about and try low vision aids, and to develop new skills that help them regain confidence and cope more effectively with the effects of vision loss. Thanks to the hospitality of Jack Piattoni and his dedicated wait staff Meghan of Thanksgivings Members of SSIL enjoyed a wonderful outing for lunch. Jack’s personal generosity, inviting them to an afternoon of individual attention as he opened his doors prior to regular business hours for the general public. Jack took the time to introduce himself and inform every one of his house specialties which mainly consisted of turkey but with several other offerings as well. (and with his self acclaimed Italian background) members were surprised of little Italian cuisine offerings except for that mouth watering Italian lemon cake . . Meghan was so thoughtful and saw to all details for exceptional service (no one would have realized this was her first waiting experience). We wish the best to her in her endeavors at college in her future... Very few if any crumbs were left behind … Linda Vaillancourt/Group Leader, Berlin and Members of SSIL Berlin/Gorham

Nothing wrong with article To the Editor, I am responding to the letter writen by Carl Gagnon about the news concerning our Councilwoman. I have read the article printed by BDS and personally find nothing wrong with it. Being a politician means the your life becomes an open book. Anything that this person does is newsworthy. She’s a politician. It comes with the job. There are many other politicians that wish their “ youthful lapses in judgement” weren’t made public but they are news. Our leaders are supposed to be law abiding citizens (at least). William Dwyer Berlin

Once upon a Berlin Time 1966 IV

Hello fellow Berlinites. In early June of 1966, a Berlin High School senior, Rodney A. Young, was named a Presidential Scholar by President Lyndon Baines Johnson. He eventually went to Washington D.C. and met with this nation’s top leader. Young, whose hometown is Milan, was one of two students from New Hampshire and part of this country’s 121 others to receive this prestigious award in the spring of 1966. News of the selection came to Young in a telegram signed by Johnson. It said: “I am happy to inform you that today I am naming you a Presidential Scholar of 1966. Mrs. Johnson and I join in warm congratulations and invite you to meet with us in the White House on June 7”. While in high school, Young received many accolades, along with being an honor student through his four years at BHS. In September of 1966, Young headed to Cornell University to study agriculture. I am not quite sure what career he later embarked on later, but he surely had a great start. I do believe that Rodney still lives in the Milan area, along with his wonderful wife Sue. A June headline in the local paper spoke of the resignation of Berlin High School principal Richard J. Bradley, which took effect for the coming school year. Bradley resigned to become the first full time director of evaluation and secretary of the commission on public secondary schools, with the New England Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. His newest job was to set up evaluations of the 500 secondary schools in New England, which were members of the association. Also, he would select evaluation committees and had the responsibility for submission of their reports. Dick Bradley’s credentials made him no stranger to this new evaluation program. He was chairman of the steering committee for the evaluation of Berlin High School and also served as chairman of the visiting evalua-

tion committees for Whitefield, Portsmouth, Keene and some Manchester schools. Bradley was also the New Hampshire representative on evaluation and accreditation committee for the commission on public secondary schools. So, he was certainly qualified to embark in this new career in his life. Dick came to Berlin High School in September of 1954 as a teacher of physical education and quickly moved into an administrative position, being an assistant principal in 1956 and principal in 1960. He also served as director of adult education and of the basic adult education program initiated the year before he left. This great educator was also the first director of the North Country Summer School and was a project director for programs under Title I of the Federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act. He coached varsity hockey from 1954 to 1965, with the exception of the 1960-61 season and was the first coach for Berlin High School to ever win the N.H. Schoolboy hockey championship in 1963. Bradley received his bachelor’s degree from Boston University in 1951 and his master of education degree in secondary school administration from the same institute in 1959. From July 1952 until August 1954, Bradley served with the U.S. Marine Corps and attained the rank of captain. While in Berlin, he was involved with the corps and many other community activities. During his twelve years spent here in the “Paper City”, Dick Bradley certainly became an historical icon in the Berlin Public School system. People that I spoke with who had him as a coach or principal and knew him personally, all believed the same thing. He was a disciplinarian, fair principal and coach and a great asset to Berlin High School and this city. Moreover, the likes of him have yet to be replaced after all of these years. see 1966 page 5

Mr. Bradley lives in California with his wife Pam and still reminisces about the years that he spent here. I and several of his former students and hockey players are still in contact with him via email. He seems to be enjoying his retirement and family and has also said that he would like to return to Berlin someday for a visit. He is more than welcome and I am sure that many people would like to see him again. Many people got their diplomas in 1966, but the happiest one of all was Mrs. Hilda Brungot. Mrs. Brungot was a 79 year old great grandmother who dropped out of Berlin High during her junior year. She did this during the early 1900’s to help earn money, so her brother Charlie could go on to college. Being that she always wanted a diploma, she went out and earned one sixty years later. Hilda had to do her homework though and her daughter, Mrs. Connie Martin, a teacher in Stark, urged her to enroll for a series of examinations to be given by Guidance Director John Nay of Groveton High School. Before taking these exams, which came at the rate of one per week, Hilda had to study diligently. She borrowed books from her daughter and Guidance Director Roy Cascadden. Mrs. Brungot said that she read from the time she got up until the time she went to bed in the evening. The exams were not easy, as each one took three to four hours to complete. They covered correctness and effectiveness of expression, interpretation of reading materials in social studies, natural sciences, literature and general mathematics. After all of this, she passed with flying colors and earned what the state board of education called a “certificate of high school equivalency”. It wasn’t quite like a high school diploma, but it carried the same weight. She wasn’t the first or last

person to do this, but there weren’t many 79 year old women with 25 grandchildren and nine great grandchildren who did. Of course, Hilda was a special lady. She probably held a political office longer than any other woman legislature in the nation. Hilda was elected a state representative for 15 terms since 1931, losing only three times. Most people said that she was all washed up, when she lost twice in a row, but she ran again in 1964, winning a seat from Ward III. Mrs. Brungot served 19 times, finishing her political career in 1975. She certainly got her political science education in the halls of the New Hampshire Legislature.

Groveton’s own Randy Potter captures “Clash of the Titans” at Riverside BY JEAN LEBLANC THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

GROVETON — Dale Ernhardt Sr. got the thrill of a life time finally winning the Daytona 500 and the congratulatory response afterwards came from his closest rivals, fellow racers, and fans. Although in a much smaller capacity, Groveton’s own Randy Potter took over the lead on lap 106 and held off Pelham’s Wayne Helliwell Jr. and the hard charging Quinney Welch from Lancaster, to win the 2011 Munce’s Superior/ Central Asphalt Paving “Clash of the Titans” 150 at Riverside Speedway in Groveton, on Sunday. “This is awesome,” said Potter in victory lane. “To win a big race like this is great and its even better because this is my home.” In victory lane it was a feeling of respect from ACT regular Wayne Helliwell Jr. and WMMP’s top gun Quinney Welch. The smiles on their faces after a hard fought 150 laps of racing said it all. Welch started on the outside pole and looked invincible for the first 92 laps. Helliwell took charge on lap 94 after a restart. However the bright orange #27 had a rear view mirror of the #02 and Randy Potter. Caution flew on lap 103 allowing Welch to duck into the pits for tires. Welch set a torrid pace to run down

the leaders coming from the back of the pack. After three restarts on lap 104, Potter worked hard on the outside and took the lead by lap 106. Helliwell stayed close to Potter, looking for any slip up by the home town kid. The duo worked their way through lapped traffic and by lap 134, Welch was back in the top three. Caution free racing over the final 40+ laps kept the final three in those positions. Potter celebrated a satisfying win in victory lane, where he began his racing at the young age of 16. Lancaster Auto Sales sponsored time trialing on the previous night for the Late Models. Bobby Baillargeon, of Kingston, clicked off the fast time of 13.29 seconds. Riverside regulars Jesse Switser was second at 13.32 and Jeff Marshall third at 13.38. Heat wins went to Chip Grenier, Quinney Welch, and Eric Williams. Mike Kenison carried checkers in the consolation race. The Budweiser Super stocks completed their 2011 point championship season with young gun Nick Gilcris winning the feature. Matt Carbone was in the runner-up spot, however capturing the point championship for the second straight season. David Allen, Trevor Roy, and Allison Barney rounded out the top five. It was race #1 in the chase for the

Jiffy Mart Cyclone division. Current point leader Cole Kilby made a statement taking the 25 lap event. Jason Wyman, Travis Moulton, Jerrad Ainsworth and Dana Graham finished in the top five. Moulton and Chris Ouellette were winners in the qualifying races. The Thunder Road Street Stocks came to Riverside Speedway, to take on the Riverside regulars. The field of 26 had their event halted after rain forced managements hand to pick up the event at Thunder Road during

Labor Day Weekend. On Saturday evening, the racing was hard and grinding for the JA Corey/ US Cellular Outlaws. 2010 champion Dan Sidney battled all night long and captured the event. Chandler Davis and Mike Paquett survived to get to the podium. New comer Cody Benoit and rookie Aaron Smith were top five finishers. David Ofsuryk and Davis carried the checkers in their respective heats. The Caron Building Center/Sign see TITANS page 15

RESIDENTS of DUMMER The town building in Dummer will be closed Thursday, August 25 due to asbestos removal.

Lean-to shelter construction planned for Nash Stream STRATFORD — Plans for a new lean-to shelter have been approved for development in the Nash Stream Forest, and work will begin on the foundation piers next week. The Cohos Trail Association announced that the New Hampshire Division of Forests and Lands has given the green light to the siting of the first leanto structure in the Nash Stream Forest. The threesided shelter will be located on the Sugarloaf Arm Trail on the southeast shoulder of Mt. Sugarloaf. The foot trail group will hold the first of what will eventually be several work days on Wednesday, August 31 to ferry tools, equipment, and cement up the mountain via ATV machine and a trailer. They hope to install ten simple foundation piers that will underpin a shelter to be donated and milled out by the Garland Mill of Lancaster and by members of the Timber Framers Guild of North America, and stabilize a prefabricated composting latrine recently completed by Jack and Chad Pepau of Stark. Volunteers are welcome to join the effort during the day. The trail association only asks that those interested bring a pair of work gloves,eye protection, a liter or two of water, and a snack.

JOHNSON from page one

TOWN OF GORHAM NEW HAMPSHIRE LEGAL/PUBLIC NOTICE PUBLIC HEARING ZONING BOARD OF ADJUSTMENT Pursuant to RSA 676:7 notice is hereby given that a Public Hearing is to be held on Wednesday, August 31, 2011 at the Town Hall located at 20 Park Street in the Public Meeting Room (2nd Floor) at 7:00 pm for the following: • Richard Briggs (property is now owned by Bradley Christopher) is requesting a Variance concerning Article IV, Section 4.02 C (4) of the Town of Gorham Zoning Ordinance for property located at Tax Map U24, Lot 33 (4 Proposed Valley Road). The applicant is requesting a variance to build a 24 x 32 garage on property that does not have frontage on a public street as required by the Town of Gorham Zoning Ordinance. This is a rehearing of this variance request as the Zoning Board of Adjustment granted the variance on June 9, 2011. The board of Selectmen subsequently filed a Motion to Rehear which was granted by the Zoning Board of Adjustment at its August 4, 2011 meeting. Paul S. Cyr, Jr Chairman Gorham Zoning Board of Adjustment

Executive Branch and, having the leadership travel more efficiently and effectively. “If the President is going to snarl every city he travels to then stop traveling,” Johnson said. Johnson is also in favor of eliminating the tax code and implementing the “Fair Tax.” That system would abolish the IRS and apply the same federal consumption 23 percent tax to all Americans. Included in that system, he said would be a pre-bate included of around $200 a month for everyone (roughly 23 percent of poverty level), to offset the tax for lowincome families. He explains that in order to balance the budget 43 percent of the government spending needs to go. That would certainly mean cuts in the “Big Three,” Medicare, Medicaid and the military, but in each case he believes they can still exist in more efficient manners. Johnson advocates federal block grants to the states for fixed amounts for Medicare and Medicaid along with a removal of “strings and mandates” that cost money for the states to implement. This would reduce the bureaucracy and the administrative costs, while still benefitting the populace. He admitted that the key question with military cuts is “can we provide ourselves a strong military defense and cut spending?” The answer, he said, is if we stick to defense and eliminate nation building we save money. “We can’t continue to be the world’s sheriff when we’re only 5 percent of the world’s population.” With the three big spending areas addressed, Johnson said he also favors eliminating the Department of Education and the Department of Housing and Urban Development. He said that he believes states can adequately handle their educational systems without a national mandate and the Washington bureaucracy cuts into the amount of money

Once the foundation piers are installed, they will be left to cure and dry. The shelter and latrine material will be brought to the site in late September and assembled at that time. Anyone who would like to attend the work session, getting to the work-day site is simple enough. Travel to Mile 9 on the Nash Stream Road, north of the Emerson Road and Route 110 in Stark. Cross the big stinger bridge over Nash Stream and look for a pullout on the left 100 feet north of the bridge that is parking for the Sugarloaf Mountain Trail. Do not block the lane to the west. Hike away from the road up the grassy way past a camp and through a gate. Walk 700 feet to a trail junction with the Sugarloaf Arm Trail. Turn left onto that trail and walk uphill a mile to a yellowtopped grade stake on the right side of the trail. Other stakes march off into the woods on the right. Follow them a short distance to the lean-to site. If you would like additional information, email or go to Facebook and search for Friends of the Cohos Trail. You may post questions or requests for information there.

that could otherwise be spent on schools. Giving the responsibility back to the states would result in 50 laboratories of best practices all out to compete, he said. “There would be best practice.” As for HUD, Johnson said it has outlived its need. He added that he would have never established the Department of Homeland Security and Transportation Security Administration. Airline security should be left to airlines, he explained, saying that it would be as good and less intrusive. He added that bad behavior is often dealt with by vigilant passengers. That societal correction of bad behavior can be used to help save money on prison spending as well, Johnson said. He pointed out that 2.3 million Americans are incarcerated, while China, which has a far larger population has only 1 million of their citizens in prison. “I am the guy I think that is going to empty out federal prisons,” said Johnson, who favors legalizing marijuana and looking at drugs as a health issue and not a criminal justice issue. He said that drug use should not be criminalized because we have effectively created prohibition related crimes, and drug use isn’t the only target. “We have criminalized a lot of behavior that many wouldn’t consider criminal,” he said. “I’m not that guy. I don’t want to criminalize bedroom behavior. I don’t want to criminalize 10 million Americans playing poker online.” Johnson, who is an avid mountain climber, said that there’s nothing in his resume to suggest he won’t do just what he says. He firmly believes that problems should be identified, analyzed and solved and takes pride in the fact that of all the candidates vying for the Republican nomination, he is the only one viewed favorably by his own state according to a recent report.

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There are two ways to improve your family history. First, report it in the best light possible. And second, be aware that you are creating it with your current actions. Let them be noble, interesting contributions. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll make up for past mistakes with the good deeds you do today. You’ll be thoughtful, on time and ready to chime in with charming insights. You’ll be on your game. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You love the feeling that anything can happen. This morning, the possibilities open up because you make it known that you are willing to take a spur-ofthe-moment risk. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You believe in unseen things like wind, true love and the inherent kindness of the human spirit. You’ll continually look for proof of the existence of these forces and others. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Instead of merely fulfilling your obligation, you will think about how your mood and attitude affect others and will supply a good dose of enthusiasm and generosity of spirit. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 25). You’ll cultivate an appetite for the finer things in life and will attract many opportunities to enjoy them. In September, you will gain greater control over your physical energy. You’ll reach a health-related goal by year’s end. A loving person will help you develop your potential. Your professional life will be a source of pride. Taurus and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 29, 41, 35 and 3.

by Darby Conley

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re an expert organizer. You’ll arrange your environment in such a way as to make it easier to keep clean and orderly. It’s amazing what a few well-placed trash bins and shelves can accomplish. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You anxiously await someone’s decision, which will affect future events for you. Whatever answer comes, there’s an advantage in it for you if you look for one. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll become deeply involved in a group in the weeks to come. This happens slowly as you participate in activities and learn more about the history of the group and its members. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You may tense up when you are diverted from your plans this afternoon. Tell yourself that it’s all going to be fine -and probably even better than what you originally wanted. Relax and go with the flow. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You will enjoy the temporary reassignment of certain roles in your life. For instance, a sibling can be a good friend to you, your children can be your teachers, and your inner critic can also be a wonderful coach. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Collaboration is a tool for creativity. So is conflict. So when people try to get into your business or cause trouble, maybe it is the blessed event that will inspire your greatest masterpiece. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). No matter how well you plan what you’re going to say, in the moment, you’ll come up with something unexpected. You resist being a puppet, even if you also happen to be the puppeteer.

For Rent by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: A young bride-to-be who signed her letter “Touchy Decision in Ohio” (June 18) prefers her stepdad walk her down the aisle at her wedding, but is worried about what her biological father (whom she sees once or twice a year) and other relatives might think. In my many decades on this earth, especially during the last 10 or 15 years, I have seen all sorts of changes in wedding etiquette, including the customs governing who walks down the aisle. In addition to fathers escorting daughters, I’ve seen brothers escort sisters and children walk their mother to the altar. In “Ohio’s” case, the logical solution, and the more appropriate one, to me, would be to have both gentlemen escort her down the aisle, one on either side. What could be lovelier? The bride-to-be should consider that the hurt feelings that often crop up on sensitive occasions such as this, if not attended to beforehand, can tarnish the memory of the event in the minds of loved ones forever. -- BARB H. IN SPRINGFIELD, MASS. DEAR BARB: Thank you for your response. Opinions regarding “Ohio’s” letter are numerous and varied. A majority of those I heard from agree with your suggestion that both dads share the task. However, others viewed it differently. My newspaper readers’ comment: DEAR ABBY: If the biological father wanted to be a part of his daughter’s life he should have made more of an effort to be there for her. The stepdad no doubt put up with all the growing pains associated with raising a teenager as well as other parenting challenges. These are the prerequisites for walking a daughter down the aisle. Although most males can father a child, not all of them can truly be a FATHER. -- STEPDAD TO A WONDERFUL DAUGHTER DEAR ABBY: I can’t believe how ignorant, uncaring and

selfish a bride would be to dump her dad on her wedding day. Everyone WILL notice and everyone WILL care. Ladies, unless your father is a total loser who was absent, a drunk, a jailbird, an addict or a deadbeat, walking you down the aisle is HIS privilege -- no one else’s. It also shouldn’t be based on how much money he was able or willing to fork over for the wedding. This is the day a real man and father has looked forward to since the day you were born. And to any man who is asked to escort a bride down the aisle: Before agreeing, ask what her situation is with her father. You may be taking a spot you don’t deserve. -- MARY IN OHIO DEAR ABBY: My daughter wanted her stepfather AND her biological father to be part of her wedding. So her stepdad (my husband) walked her down the aisle to where I was sitting in the first row. I stood up, gave her my handkerchief and kissed her cheek. Then her father stepped out from the row behind me, and her stepdad handed her over to her father, who walked her the rest of the way to the altar and gave her away. Everyone was happy with this amicable solution. -- JOYCE IN ALABAMA DEAR ABBY: I was in the same situation at my wedding. My solution was to have my stepfather walk me down the aisle and my father do the father/daughter dance. That way both men were acknowledged and each one given his special time. -- KATHY IN NEW ENGLAND DEAR ABBY: Rather than worry about her father’s feelings, the young woman could have her mother walk her down the aisle. Mom has been the constant in her life and there’s no reason she shouldn’t accompany her daughter to the altar. That way, Mom gets recognition for her part in raising her daughter and no feelings are hurt. -- GRETCHEN IN THE HEARTLAND
