‘Free Ward Bird’ the cry as friends rally in support of imprisoned M’borough farmer BY GAIL OBER


MEREDITH — After a four-year legal battle that eventually took him to the N.H. Supreme Court, Moultonborough farmer Ward Bird surrendered himself Wednesday to the N.H. State Prison, where he may spend the next 3 1/2 years of his life. As news of his incarceration spread throughout the community, the outrage

among his friends mounted and by 3 p.m. yesterday afternoon nearly 100 of them had massed at Picnic Rock Farm in Meredith to protest. “Free Ward Bird. Free Ward Bird,” they shouted as Ward’s wife Virgina Bird circulated among them and they waited for television cameras to show. The Meredith site was apparently chosen as the protest site because the farmstand

and that Rte. 3 location is where Bird markets his produce. But the story behind what sent this local farmer, husband, Boy Scout leader and father of four to prison pits the meaning of living in the “Live Free or Die” state against this same state’s criminal code, enacted to protect society from danger. According to Virgina Bird, in late March see BIRD page 11

SALE Single-stream a hit; Laconia recycling setting record pace BY ADAM DRAPCHO THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

Prices Start at


LACONIA — Since the introduction of single-stream recycling last January, the amount of recycled materials collected in the city has grown at a record pace and will likely top 1,000 tons for the first time by the end of the year. Between January and October, residents and businesses recycled 846.46 tons of

trash, 155.86 tons or 23-percent more than the 690.6 tons collected during the same period in 2009. Curbside collection jumped by 108.15 tons, from 428.94 tons to 537.09 tons, an increase of 25-percent, while the tonnage taken to the three collection points climbed by 47.71 tons, from 261.66 tons to 309.37 tons, an increase of 18-percent. Ann Saltmarsh, who manages the recycling program at the Department of Public Works,

said that “since we expanded the range of plastics and made recycling simple the results have been very encouraging. I have people asking for recycling bins every day.” Since the city pays a fixed price for recycling regardless of tonnage, every ton taken out of the waste stream and recycled reduces the cost of collecting, transporting and disposing of solid waste, which is see RECYCLING page 12 The

‘Harry Potter’ actors share torrid kiss

LONDON (AP) — Daniel Radcliffe was expecting a tender embrace when it came time to kiss co-star Emma Watson in the new “Harry Potter” film. What he got was torrid necking, Watson working magic with her lips “like an animal,” he said. “I thought it was going to be like a soft, sensual sort of moment, and it was this very vigorous kissing scene,” said Radcliffe, reprising the title role in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1,” the second-to-last of the big-screen adventures about the teen wizard, which opens Friday. “She really went for it, I have to say. It caught me slightly off guard, but yeah, I’m not complaining. Many men would lose a limb to be in that position,” Radcliffe said in an interview. The film casts Harry and best pals Hermione Granger (Watson) and Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) out into the world to fend for themselves, and the journey puts severe strain on their friendship. Under the spell of an artifact containing part of the evil Voldemort’s soul, Ron is sent into a jealous rage by a vision of Hermione, the girl he loves, and Harry taunting him as a third wheel in their relationship. Hermione and Harry then turn to each other and do some kissing that looks positively bestial.

SAYWHAT... A kiss that is never tasted, is forever and ever wasted.” —Billie Holiday

Sale of half Uncle Sam’s stock in GM raises $16-billion NEW YORK - U.S. taxpayers’ ownership of General Motors Co. was halved Wednesday and billions of dollars in bailout money was returned to the federal government as the automaker pulled off the nation’s largest initial stock offering in history. GM sold 478 million common shares at $33 each, raising $15.77 billion. The new shares start trading Thursday on the New York Stock Exchange. The U.S. Treasury, the United Auto Workers health care trust, and the Canadian governments have already unloaded their stock to investor firms that participated in the IPO. The stock is likely to start trading at least a few cents higher or lower than $33, as new investors buy the stock from firms that are “flipping,” or selling their stock right away.

To break even, the Treasury Department will need to sell its remaining 500 million shares at an average price of $53 each in the months and years to come. Most of the new stock will go to institutional investors, not to everyday investors, following a Wall Street sys-tem that rewards investment banks’ big customers. GM will set aside 5 percent of its new stock for employees, retirees, and car dealers to buy at the offering price. The deadline to sign up was Oct. 22, but the company has not revealed how many people took the offer. The government has agreed that it will not sell shares outside the IPO for six months after the sale. At $33 a share, taxpayers will recoup up to $13.6 billion on the IPO. “GM’s initial public offering is an impor-

tant step in the turnaround of the company and for our work to recover taxpayer dollars and exit this investment as soon as practicable,” Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said Wednesday. The GM debut comes at a time when auto stocks are performing well generally. The stock of GM’s crosstown rival, Ford Motor Co., has risen steadily this year, from about $10 in January to about $16.50 as the GM offering approached. The stock traded for a dollar in November, 2008. Ford did not take bailout money. With this stock offering, GM doesn’t rid itself of government intervention. The government remains a big shareholder. And three board members, plus Ed Whitacre, the chairman and former chief executive officer, were hand-picked by the government.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The House ethics committee on Thursday recommended censure for longtime Rep. Charles Rangel, suggesting that the New York Democrat suffer the embarrassment of standing before his colleagues while receiving an oral rebuke by the speaker for financial and fundraising misconduct. Censure is the most serious congressional discipline short of expulsion. The House, which could change the recommended discipline by making it more serious or less serious, probably will consider Rangel’s case after Thanksgiving.

The ethics committee voted 9-1 to recommend censure and that Rangel pay any taxes he owes on income from a vacation villa in the Dominican Republic. The five Democrats and five Republicans on the panel deliberated for about three hours behind closed doors. In a report, the committee said that censure had been recommended in the past in cases of lawmakers enriching themselves. In Rangel’s case, the committee said, its decision was based on “the cumulative nature of the violations and not any direct personal financial gain.”

Earlier, at a sanctions hearing, the 20-term congressman apologized for his misconduct but said he was not a crooked politician out for personal gain. He was in the House hearing room when the ethics committee chairman, Democratic Rep. Zoe Lofgren of California, announced the recommendation. Rangel faced Lofgren after the verdict and said, “I hope you can see your way clear to indicate any action taken by me was not with the intention of bringing any disgrace on the House or enriching myself personally.”

Michael Barone

Laying an egg called QE2 I don’t claim to be an expert on monetary policy or international finance, but I’ve been astonished by the degree of disrespect expressed here and abroad to the latest economic policies of President Barack Obama and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke. The policies in question are the Obama administration’s attempts to convince other countries (especially China) to strengthen their currencies and the Fed’s renewed bout of quantitative easing (generally referred to as QE2), which involves buying $600-billion in Treasury bonds by next June. Both are widely interpreted as attempts to lower the value of the dollar to make American exports cheaper and to reduce the huge export earnings of countries as varied as China, Germany and Brazil. Not surprisingly, Chinese and German leaders are squawking loudly, complaining that the United States is attempting to use their strength to compensate for our own weakness. Brazil’s finance minister, Guido Mantega, minced no words when he called the Fed’s action the beginning of “currency wars.” Obama’s efforts to get agreement at the G-20 conference were not successful. Seldom if ever has an American leader been pummeled with such criticism at an international economic conference. During the 2008 campaign, we were told that foreigners would once again respect America if voters elected Obama. That wasn’t apparent in Korea. In Washington, too, there have been complaints coming from a surprising source. Shortly after Bernanke announced the Fed’s QE2 policy, Federal Reserve Board member Kevin Warsh wrote an article for The Wall Street Journal saying that there won’t be much easing and that the Fed can’t compensate for bad fiscal policy. “The Federal Reserve is not a workshop for broken fiscal, trade or regulatory policies,” he wrote. Warsh has been regarded, by me and others more expert, as a solid Bernanke ally on the Fed, one given to justifying the chairman’s policies to the outside world, and he voted with Bernanke on QE2. But in the Journal, he wrote, “I consider the (Fed’s) action as necessarily limited, circumscribed and subject to regular review.” Translation: Ben, you haven’t got my vote for long. Similarly, many were surprised to see World Bank President Robert Zoellick write in the Financial Times Nov. 9 calling attention to the risk

of inflation. “Markets are using gold as an alternative monetary asset today,” he wrote. He urged economic policymakers to consider “employing gold as a reference point of market expectations about inflation, deflation and future currency values.” Gold prices, as viewers of cable news ads know, have been rising to nearrecord levels, so inflation is what Zoellick is worried about. Zoellick is no fringe character. He worked for James Baker at Treasury and State and was George W. Bush’s special trade representative and deputy secretary of state. This week, a group of predominantly Republican economists, financers and writers wrote an open letter to Bernanke calling for ending QE2. “The planned asset purchases risk currency debasement and inflation, and we do not think they will achieve the Fed’s objective of promoting employment.” Searing words. It’s highly unusual for such a group to put out such stinging criticism of a Fed chairman’s policy. In announcing QE2, Bernanke stressed the Fed’s statutory obligation to hold down unemployment. That was inserted into the Fed’s charge by Democrats in the 1970s but has clearly been considered of secondary importance by Chairmen Paul Volcker and Alan Greenspan to the Fed’s primary duty to hold down inflation. I suspect that Bernanke is less focused on reducing unemployment than he is on preventing deflation. His scholarly work has concentrated on the disastrous deflation that struck America and much of the world in the 1930s. As a Fed board member in 2003, he delivered a widely noticed speech warning of deflation and indicating how the Fed could fight it. He once wrote, presumably whimsically, that if deflation was a great enough threat, the Fed chairman could go up in a helicopter and throw money down into the streets. But now it looks like a lot of people want to ground Helicopter Ben. QE2 may have seemed a good match for the Obama administration policy of strengthening China’s currency and in the process weakening the dollar. But it seems a poor match with the incoming Congress — and with the heads of many of the world’s other leading economic powers. Can the Fed persist in a policy that has stirred such scathing criticism?

LETTERS Who would give Center Harbor another gift like Dr. Morill’s Park? To the editor, And to Centre Harbor residents: We see the selectperson’s take away a gift given in memory of a fine doctor, one of the last to make house calls and the man who vaccinated me, so I could attend school. Why? Can they not hear the will of the people? Are other properties not available (any property associated with me is NOT available). The vote was lost last March. As my dad would say; “close only counts with horseshoes and hand grenades!”. In common language, the park was given to the town “forever”, not until someone decided to take it. Guess that only means something to the generation who receives such a gift. The current persons in power and those from the legal authorities giving permission, knew neither the Dane’s who made it possible, nor Dr. Morrill, so this move is easy. Shame! Who would give such a gift in light of this situation? In addition the “purpose”, a police station, is not something that cannot be done elsewhere, as the law relative to this implies, nor, if you read carefully the minutes of the meeting to purchase the Brook’s house, was there any mention of a police station on that property as some have stated. It might have been on the minds of some, but never stated and certainly not in the vote. Putting all this aside, do we need a $1.3 plus, million police station? We need a police station, yes, but certainly not at that price (or in that location)! I have not heard a single person say we do not need a police station. The selectpersons do not mention additional employees with benefits and that is sure to come. Additional employees, vehicles and equipment will come and there are those that will say it was in the minutes/discussions of the meet-

ing leading to the vote, if one is passed. “Build a space too big and it will soon be filled to capacity”, another true saying of my dad, easily applied in a $1.3-million building. (Just an aside; will InterLakes start taking down buildings, letting go teachers or tearing up play fields now that school population is on the decrease? Once built it gets filled and more is asked for.) Now I read in this paper that the Chamberlain Reynolds Memorial Forest in Centre Harbor will be “harvested”. I could say a lot, but will only ask; who gets the timber profits (I should say income, because being a non-profit, you can be sure the income will be offset on the books with expenses)? Will the town get a timber tax — they do not receive property taxes on this Squam-front property? What will happen in a few years with the new “preserve” that runs from 25-B to Squam lake and takes in many acres? Some day, some person with time and accounting ability should figure what Centre Harbor has for property on it’s roles that is either at a reduced rate or pays no tax at all (schools, churches, town buildings/properties, cemeteries, parks, quasi religious properties and the like). What would all this property do to our current tax rate if taxed at a full rate like you and me? I did this exercise about 18 years ago, before many current reductions and found many million’s in values at the then current rates of assessment. Since we have added parks, preserves and barns to the “no” or reduced tax roles. Who picks up the slack? You and me. Thanks for hearing me out and giving concerned thought to this situation. Bob Heath Center Harbor

Some thanks are in order for downtown holiday decorations To the editor, Once again Downtown Laconia has been magnificently decorated to celebrate the season, and some thanks are in order: To our friends at MetroCast, your crew is great, they really put us in the holiday mood.

LETTERS Disingenuous criticism discourages good people from involvement To the editor, A quote of significant inspiration to me is that of Theodore Roosevelt’s in his farewell address to his officers and men at Montauk Point, New York. I hope that it is as inspiring to you, also. In part: “…and as you doff this uniform you have served so well, may I remind you that your obligation to your country is not over, for we Americans must practice duty all the days of our lives. When you return to your homes remember that’s your flag flying at the town square, nurture it well I pray you, for we have come so far as a nation but there is still much work to be done and so many who have yet to benefit in that great dream of our forefathers. I challenge each and every one of you to become involved in your local government, your school and your church. We must leave no ground unturned in the cultivation of our youth- body, mind, and spirit- for soon the torch of liberty must be passed to them and if you take up this quest with the same fortitude you have shown on the field of battle, I hold no fear for our country’s future. I stand humble in your shadow. I am your forever-grateful colonel. “ Spoken over a hundred years ago, it is as appropriate today as in September of 1898. And that challenge applies to all, not only to those who retire a uniform. Every municipality depends on its citizen volunteers, elected and appointed, to function for the good of all in their community. That type of volunteerism is not often fun, it takes of your spare time and it may be aggravating and frustrating. It is also necessary, spiritually rewarding, and dutifully satisfying. Giving yourself to

evening meetings, innumerable work sessions and Saturday seminars, thoughtfully addressing constructive criticism, and always being in a learning curve are all just part of the job for which you’ve volunteered. Most people you serve recognize and appreciate your good intentions and conscientious work, realizing that ninety-nine point nine percent of volunteers are honest, diligent neighbors, respectful of differing points of view. Sincere criticism and reflective debate is easily differentiated from the vitriolic faultfinding of the few. One person embellishing stories and inventing “facts” can appear to be a hundred while posing in the anonymity of pseudonyms and aliases. Our community has a few resentful people accusing many volunteers at various times of being crooks, “Gestapo agents”, self-serving “good old boys” and puppets for the town administrator. Volunteers can never please the few but are agreeable to a majority most of the time. Disingenuous criticism can be easily dismissed save one harmful component: Discouraging good people from becoming the volunteers that are needed to guide our town. New Hampshire communities have a rich history of citizen participation. Good people need to continue to accept Mr. Roosevelt’s challenge and become involved in local government and schools, insuring that honest and effective service to the community will be carried forward. Perfection belongs in an idealist’s dictionary. The reality is we are living in a darn nice town with a lot of good people. Natt King Moultonborough

Professor Sandy is a big spender so I’ll let him pick up the check To the editor, Enjoyed your recent letter to the Daily Sun, Mr.Sandy. A healthy dollop of counter punch with a dash of wit and sarcasm for flavoring. I like it ! A nice up grade from that rant on Republicans after the election tsunami swept Democrats out to sea. I’ll pass on “hug out at the OK corral” but I have a thought in it’s place. I suggest this you old back slapper. We meet for lunch at your favorite spot. It seems an appropriate suggestion given the up coming holiday season where people are supposed to forgive and “bury the hatchet”. Don’t get nervous that was meant rhetorically speaking. I am retired, your the working fellow, so meeting in Plymouth is fine with me. Your views always represent the big spending arm of government so I will let you pick up the check. I represent the conservative agenda so I will pick something very cost effective from the menu and pay

the tip to show my appreciation for your generosity. I am aware you could make a reverse argument based on long historical precedent that Democrats always want benefits for themselves paid for by someone else. The “invisible rich” are always a popular target. So I am prepared for that counter argument. It is a very valid one. We could pay the bill using the method most in vogue today which is put it on our kids credit card and let them pay it later. Lastly we could flip a coin. As I said it should be fun no matter who pays. I look forward to it. During the conversation you can check my body armour for liberal cracks and I will check yours for conservative ones. We may learn a lot about each other in the discovery process and find we have more in common than we think.. What say you professor Sandy? The ball is in your court. Tony Boutin Gilford

Soap & clean hands will not stop the spread of cholera in Haiti To the editor, With regard to the letter from Kevin Sperl in your November 18th issue asking for soap donations to help end the spread of cholera in Haiti: Cholera is spread by drinking contaminated water. Using soap to wash hands will not stop the spread.

What is needed is a source of uncontaminated drinking water, either by supplying clean bottled water or by properly treating the contaminated supply with chlorine. Spencer J. Brody, MD, MPH Meredith

LETTERS Is there not one American who can make this simple product? To the editor, Now that we have all been brainwashed into being “green” with our shopping bags (plastic, paper or store advertising bags) we find that those bags — MADE IN CHINA — are another way for our biggest competitor to try and poison the American population. If you cannot read the labels on the product, you deserve the consequences of your purchases. First the Chinese poisoned our pets. Then they poisoned the drywall. Now because we are trying to save the planet by using reusable bags, they have found a way of put lead in the composition of their product. Trying to save money in this global economy by buying at Walmart, which is, by the way, one of the biggest importers of Chinese manufacturing

— whose products continually carry hazardous ingredients that are the main contributor of the biggest health expense for the American public. Are you really telling me that there is not one person in America that cannot make this simple product better and less hazardous than the Chinese at less cost? It is time for taking chances and making a better life for your families. It is far better to try something and it fails, than never having tried at all. Do not go at something with the idea that it will fail and you may be out a little bit of money. Instead, have faith in yourself and give it a shot. Who knows, if you try something and it fails, it is far better to dream than to have done nothing at all. Bev Buker Gilford

I say don’t waste a penny on what’s not needed but music is To the editor, Maybe I’m a bit biased regarding music since our family has been active in music for as long as I can recall. But, it seems that a knowledge of music, and being active in it, has been the major step in being successful in life. Thus I find it a bit unbelievable that Gilford’s Community Band, always grossly underfunded, has been cut even more! Maybe a lot of the rough and dangerous “sports” programs should go back to support ONLY from participants, and the band fully funded, which would save taxpayers a bundle. Why should you

be so concerned with beating a tiny defenseless ball all over, when instead you could be enjoying good music? Dave Nix wrote a compelling message in The Laconia Daily Sun today (Nov. 17), which clearly shows the band has been grossly underfunded for many years. My Scotch heritage says don’t waste a penny on anything not needed, but MUSIC is definitely NEEDED! It should be based on public support. All in favor of music please send a short message to the Daily Sun stating that support. Jack Stephenson Gilford

To the editor, Another letter on the Gilford Community Band budget is more painful evidence of how addicted to government reliance people have become. What a sad state of affairs when we can’t even cut such a tiny amount from the budget for what amounts to be a government funded “privilege”. To be clear, I never wrote that the band members were greedy; however, the recent letter does give me reason to pause. Even though the letter writer states a number of “convenient” facts to support his case for “all about me”, he obviously has very little knowledge of what’s in or not in the town’s budget. There are NO coaching stipends in the Town of Gilford’s budget. Those reside in the school budget and while we’re on that topic, in the spirit of “true volunteerism”, I take it the clarinetist supports cutting or reducing those stipends like I have tried to do for the last three years (I digress). I’m not going to respond to actually listing all the cuts in the town’s budget because it’s obvious he doesn’t care about cuts that don’t affect him. Using the old pretzel logic government formula on how no increase in a budget is actually a “cut”, is just further evidence of the Neanderthal thinking of those that depend on government for everything including their hobbies and entertainment. Let’s address the letter writer’s comparison of wages from that of a life guard to a band director. For starters, life guard duties are a life-safety issue. I’ve argued that we should simply post a sign at the beach that reads “swim at your own risk”. This would clearly save the town a pile of money. I suppose the fear of law suits has trumped my suggestion. Additionally, life guards are usually local college students who look for a summer

job that relates to their major. Needless to say, none of them are on the school district payroll earning a steady salary with full benefits, like a Gilford band director. The letter writer goes on to say that the band has tried raising funds outside the town budget but found them to not be “viable”. This is a disconnect with the statements made by their spokesperson, Mr. Cheesebrough, who publicly stated they hadn’t sought private funding in the past as a “practical” matter but he supposed they could. Keep in mind, there’s still $250 in the budget for the band director. The band just needs to find the additional $750 for the band director’s $1,000 stipend. Let’s be clear. The $750 cut wasn’t for instrument maintenance, custodian fees or sheet music. It is for the band director stipend. It might surprise the clarinetist that I too was in a community band at one time. I clearly understand the value of that experience; however, that has nothing to do with how it’s funded. My community band experience was completely funded outside the government process. Most of the members were from the local school band along with many adults, like me, who had a love for playing music. We performed many concerts and enjoyed practicing together without relying on any government funds. Imagine, volunteers actually volunteering without pay. I realize that might be a foreign concept for some, but it’s really true. A community band can exist and produce great performances without the government’s help. Who knows, you may even discover a new sense of joy that you are self reliant and truly volunteering a great service to the community. Terry Stewart Gilford

To the editor, Last week I submitted a letter to the Sun but on the following day got a failure notice. Apparently for whatever reason it failed to go through so I’ll give it another try along with some additional thoughts. It’s been a long time since I was in the forth grade at the Callaghan School but today, Nov. 11, some old memories came back to me. I remember we got a new classmate named Richie. For the life of me I can’t remember his last name because he was only with us through fifth grade, I expect. Anyway Richie proved to be quite a character. That’s not to be confused with someone with character, he was just “a character”. Take for instance at recess when we kids played something as simple as tag. If Richie got tagged, “your it”, Richie inevitably called back “no sah, ya missed me”. This usually led to some spirited debate. Come spring and baseball if Richie got thrown out at first, well you guessed it, “no sah” ! Even if he was a yard away he would argue the point. It got so bad that on one occasion he refused to leave the base. One of the brighter kids, not me, suggested we ignore him and if he got home the run it wouldn’t count. He did, and it didn’t, causing Richie to storm off in a cloud of

very un-forth grade epithets and fury. It’s funny how some things like a letter in today’s Sun can trigger a memory from so long ago. Funny, funny, funny. By the way Marty, your still “it”. One week later and I have to admit to greatly enjoying the letters of Jack Stephenson and Bob Meade referring to that good ol’ nutty Professor Leo R. Sandy. After reading the professor’s letter the other day can anyone question why I dubbed him “nutty”? A world police force, professor? Just how in the world would that work? Who would pay for it? Who would be in charge of it? Some kind of free wheeling, massive military organization accountable to questionable authorities? Let’s see if my intuition is far off? Bet it would be funded by all the “rich” western countries but controlled by something like the United Nations. All nations would cede their sovereignty over to the “One World Body” in the name of social justice and peace. How am I doing professor? Hey, it’s nothing really, no really it’s nothing, I don’t have special abilities. Really it’s just that you have said it all before, several times. Several times you have seen your ideas dissected and destroyed see next page

Mayor to turn blue as the bird on Saturday? Laconia Mayor Mike Seymour dropped by the Lakes Region Salvation Army office recently to talk about Saturday’s annual Turkey Plunge at Weirs Beach. He was met by Advisory Board Chairperson Alison Whynot (left), Tommy Turkey — who presented the Mayor a Plunge T-shirt, and Army officers Captains Stephen and Sally Warren and a camera-shy Jackson Warren. Seymour will be plunging again this year and invited all Laconians to Weirs Beach this Saturday at 11 a.m. for the fun-filled family event. He invited people to plunge along with him or simply support a Plunger with a donation pledge to the Salvation Army. Following the Plunge, a delicious luncheon will be served across the highway at the Weirs Beach Lobster Pound featuring chili, chowder, soup and stew from seven of the Lakes Region’s finest restaurants. Plungers receive a complimentary lunch while the general public is asked for a $ 5 donation for the lunch. (Courtesy photo)

Liquor Commission issues 4 Loko warning

CONCORD (AP) — The New Hampshire Liquor Commission says caffeinated alcohol drinks are not approved for sale in the state and won’t be anytime soon. Liquor Commissioner Joe Mollica warns parents that University of New Hampshire students are buying Four Loko and other brand drinks in Massachusetts and bringing them back to campus. The FDA announced Wednesday that caffeine-infused alcohol drinks

are illegal and should be removed from shelves nationwide. The beverages — called “blackout in a can” by many students — contain a volatile mix of caffeine and alcohol. Mollica said the drinks are more dangerous than any drink the commission has seen on the market in many years. Connecticut liquor distributors have agreed to stop shipments and deliveries of the drinks.

Lawmakers put an end to Lynch administration’s bid for JUA ‘surplus” BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

CONCORD — The Lynch administration lost its latest — and likely its last — bid to swipe the $110-million surplus of the New Hampshire Medical Malpractice Joint Underwriting Association (JUA) yesterday when the Joint Legislative Committee on Administrative Rules (JLCAR) again unanimously rejected rules proposed by the Insurance Department that would grant the state control of the funds. On the recommendation of Governor John Lynch, the Legislature included the $110-million of the surplus in his 2010-2011 budget. Policyholders, led by LRGHealthcare of Laconia, challenged the state’s claim, insisting that the rules governing the JUA and their contracts with it granted them a right to a share of the surplus. In January, the New Hampshire Supreme Court denied the state’s claim and upheld the right of the policyholders. However, the administration declined to comply with the decision and instead began overhauling the JUA in order to transfer its surplus to the state coffers. Under the proposed rules the independent board of directors of the JUA

would be scrapped and all authority over its management and operations transferred to the insurance commissioner. The rules would replace the current contracts, which provide that the policyholders make up the deficits and share in the earnings of the JUA, and explicitly forbid transferring any share of either earnings or assets to private parties. The rules further grant the commissioner with exclusive authority to terminate JUA and transfer its assets to either another plan or “the general fund of the state.” In September, after a daylong hearing, JLCAR found that the rules conflicted with statutes that prohibit the insurance commissioner and members of his department from managing an insurer and forbid an insurer owned or controlled by a government or government agency from writing insurance in the state. The committee also held that authorizing the insurance commissioner to dissolve the JUA without legislative review and approval was contrary to the intent of the Legislature and interest of the public. And finally the committee concluded that the proposed rules failed

to accommodate the decision of the Supreme Court, which recognized the “vested rights” of policyholders in the surplus. Yesterday, the Insurance Department offered amendments, which they maintained overcame the flaws in the original rules. The committee, supported by the advice of its staff attorney disagreed, and again not only refused to approve the rules but went a step further by deciding to present a joint resolution to the Legislature to quash them. Under state law, agencies may adopt rules over the objection of JLCAR, with the proviso that if the rules are challenged in court, the burden of proof falls on the agency to show that the rules are consistent with the intent of the Legislature, serve the public interest and have no unforeseen economic impact. However, the law also provides JLCAR with the means of preventing agencies from adopting rules over its objection. The joint resolution, which must be

filed within 10 days of December 1 when the Legislature convenes, will prohibit the Insurance Department from adopting the rules until the Legislature has had at least 90 days to act on the resolution. Senator Jeb Bradley (R-Wolfeboro), the new Senate Majority Leader, said yesterday that he has begun drafting legislation that would forever forestall any transfer of funds from the JUA to the state. Attorney Scott O’Connell, one of the team representing the policyholders of the JUA, said that now the question of how to deal with the surplus rests with the directors and managers of the JUA. “This is where it has belonged since the Supreme Court ruled,” he said, “but the JUA was taken hostage by the administration and the Insurance Department. Now the JUA must do its job,” he said, explaining that the directors must calculate the surplus, determine what to keep in reserve and what to distribute to policyholders.

GILFORD from page one Gilford is one of 30 member municipalities, which together contribute $121,000 to the commission’s annual operating budget of $816,500. Gilford’s share amounts to about $8,500. Executive Director Kimon Koulet told the committee that the regional planning commissions were established by legislation in 1968 and began operations in 1971. He explained that the commissions were formed to foster and facilitate cooperation among cities and towns in addressing issues like transportation, environmental protection, hazardous waste and economic development of regional impact as well as to provide municipalities with technical assistance on a variety of undertakings. Describing the commission as “another bureaucracy, another step, another level,” Murphy said “that’s what makes government more unwieldy” and doubted that the commission provides “any value added.” Terry Stewart conceded that in 1971, when town officials had less formal education and professional training, the commission “may have

made sense.” But, today, he said that the work of the commission could be done equally effectively by town officials. He called the commission “the most unnecessary government largess I’ve ever seen” and declared “if we had the authority to defund the entire Planning Commission, I’d be the first to put up my hand.” However, Stewart acknowledged that if Gilford withdrew its funding, it would have no effect on the commission, but merely deprive the town of any benefits membership might provide. “It’s time to start unravelling it,” Murphy interjected, “or it will only get worse.” Stewart said that he was inclined to think the $8,500 is “well spent for the town.” Paul Blandford said that if town employees were assigned the work of the commission, it would cost the town more than its share of the commission’s budget. “The town gains the benefits for a small amount of money,” he said. The majority of the committee agreed. — Michael Kitch

(Laconia Daily Sun photo/Gail Ober)

BIRD from page one of 2006, Ward Bird, 45, was in his rural Moultonborough home recovering from what she described as a near fatal farming accident. According to Carrol County Prosecutor Robin Gordon, a woman, Christine Harris, was looking for a piece of property nearby when she became lost on the rural back roads. Both sides agree that she entered Ward Bird’s long driveway and drove to his house. Both sides also agree that the entire driveway was then and still is posted with an array of “No Trespassing” and “Private Property” signs. Both sides also agree that before entering the driveway and as part of her attempt to find the elusive property, Harris spoke to Ward Bird’s niece who gave her directions to the “Viano” land and told her that if she passed a white work trailer, she had gone too far. And both sides agree the niece called Ward Bird and told him what this woman was looking for and described the Ford Ranger pickup she would be driving. Harris missed the turn and headed up Ward Bird’s driveway. According to Gordon, when Ward Bird saw Harris get out of her truck he came out of the house waving a .45 caliber handgun and screaming at her to “Get the (expletive) off of my property.” Gordon said Harris asked Ward Bird if he was the boyfriend of the woman selling the property and Bird continued yelling. She said Harris got into her truck, mouthed to Ward Bird the words, “What an ass,” and drove off. According to Virgina Bird, who admittedly did not

see or hear the encounter although she was home, Ward Bird asked Harris to leave his property three times. After the fourth time Ward Bird asked her to leave, she said he told her he was going to call the police and turned to re-enter his home. She said her husband “always” carries a gun and this time it was a .45 caliber handgun carried in a back holster. She said her husband turned to go back into his home, removed the gun to check the safety, re-holstered it and went inside to call police. Harris went to the police crying and saying Ward Bird had threatened her with a handgun and had pointed it at her. Virginia Bird said the police asked Ward Bird to come down to the station the next night and “fill out a police report,” which he did. After an investigation, police charged Bird with one count of criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon and one count of reckless conduct with a firearm — both felonies. According to his friends and supporters, Ward Bird was offered a “deal” that in exchange for a guilty plea. “He had the opportunity to plead guilty to a lessor charge but he chose to stand on principal,” said supporter Chris Shipp who took time off his job as a Laconia firefighter to join in the demonstration of support. “That’s absolutely correct,” said Gordon, who acknowledged Ward Bird was offered a chance to plead guilty to a lessor charge and not do any jail time. “But he didn’t want to give up his [gun] permit.” see next page

from preceding page Gilmanton attorney Mark Sisti represented Ward Bird at his criminal trials — both of them. He said the first trial ended in a mistrial after he moved for one when a police officer gave “absolutely improper testimony” and Judge Kenneth C. Brown agreed. After Ward Bird’s second trial, with Judge Steven Houran presiding, a jury of 12 found him guilty of criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon and innocent of reckless conduct with a firearm. A guilty finding for criminal threatening with a handgun requires a mandatory sentence of 3 1/2 years to 7 years in state prison. Remaining free on bail, Ward Bird appealed his conviction to the N.H. Supreme Court because his defense wasn’t allowed to present testimony about Harris’s previous criminal record; that the indictment was insufficient to allege felony criminal threatening; that there was insufficient evidence to support a felony con-

viction; and the prosecution didn’t negate his justification of defense of his property. He also said the trial court committed a reversible error when it enhanced his sentence. All five Supreme Court justices this week voted to uphold the conviction. The justices ruled that Harris’s criminal background and Ward Bird’s lawyer’s inability to address it on his cross-examination was not an attempt by the state to mislead the jury by misrepresenting her. “She was a benign presence,” said Gordon. “She wasn’t there to do him harm.” Justices also said his defense of premises argument was also not substantiated by the evidence presented at trail and that the prosecution’s argument that Ward Bird’s reaction to Harris’s trespass was “unreasonable.” “A belief that is unreasonable, even though honest, see next page

from preceding page will not support the defense,” wrote Chief Justice John Broderick. As to whether the indictment did not sufficiently allege a felony because it made no mention of the gun or it’s alleged intended use, Broderick wrote that the indictment read that “he purposely put Christine Harris in fear of imminent bodily injury of physical contact by waving a .45 caliber handgun, a firearm and a deadly weapon pursuant to RSA 625:11” was enough. As to the evidence, Broderick said, “a rational juror readily could have found that the defendant’s actions of waving and pointing a gun toward the victim, while yelling, ‘Get the F off my property,’” constituted felony criminal threatening. Broderick also said despite the defendant’s claim there was no evidence that he fired a shot or said he would shoot Harris, the relevant part of the enhancement was that “the defendant used the firearm as a deadly weapon.” Justices also concluded that constitutionally, they had to “presume that the sentencing scheme is constitutional and cannot declare it unconstitutional except upon inescapable grounds.” In his opinion Broderick wrote that the N.H. Constitution “Does not prohibit the legislature from constricting the independent exercise of judicial discretion by the requirement of mandatory sentences.” When reached yesterday, Sisti said he was now concentrating on where Ward Bird “does his time.”

He said the trial judge, Judge Houran, recommended that he be incarcerated at a county jail, that he be eligible for work release and that he be allowed home confinement. “We’re disappointed,” said Sisti who said there are some bills pending in the Legislature regarding the defense of property and the display of firearms that could change the laws in the future. For Gordon, the verdict is a good one. “If you’re going to have a weapon, use it responsibly,” she said. “If people don’t like what the Legislature puts in the laws then they can elected people who will change them.” Gordon said Ward Bird had been told Harris may come to his house by his niece and that, if she did, what she was seeking. “She [the niece] gave him a head’s up,” Gordon said, adding that 12 people, meaning the jury, didn’t “buy his story” and neither did she. But his friends and family aren’t giving up on Ward Bird. By 6 p.m. nearly 200 people had showed up at Picnic Rock Farm and WMUR television was broadcasting live from the site. Ward Bird has a lot of friends. They’ve been helping Virginia and the children get the farm ready for winter. Ginny Ward is still running the Picnic Rock Farm Stand and the family friends are not going anywhere. They’ve started petitions, they’ve started a letter-writing campaign to Gov. John Lynch, and they’re not giving up on their friend, Ward Bird.

Concern up north about power lines that would lead to Franklin COLEBROOK (AP) — Plans to build a 140-mile line of high-voltage power towers in New Hampshire’s North Country is generating opposition. Hundreds of people turned out for a meeting Wednesday in Colebrook sponsored by a group Stop the Towers to express their opposition to the $1.1 billion Northern Pass project, which is being developed by Northeast Utilities, NSTAR, and a subsidiary of Hydro-Quebec. Power would be brought from Quebec to New Eng-

Tenney Mountain ski area to go on the auction block on Dec. 15 PLYMOUTH (AP) — A New Hampshire ski area that owes the town of Plymouth $170,000 in back taxes is going on the auction block. The Tenney Mountain ski area in Plymouth and Groton includes 445 acres of ski resort, 385 acres of vacant land and almost 40 acres of an undeveloped subdivision.

NEW YORK (AP) — Conservative blogger Kevin DuJan is psyched. He’s actually starting to think Palin can win the whole kit and kaboodle. No, not Sarah — though he hopes she’ll be the next president. He means daughter Bristol, on “Dancing with the Stars.” The 20-year-old Palin’s improbable run to next week’s finals — championed by websites like DuJan’s — has led to such an uproar that conspiracy theories are floating, some fans are insisting they’ll never watch again, and a Wisconsin man actually shot up his television, apparently in disgust over Palin’s dancing.

“There’s been more angst over this than over the 2000 election,” quips media industry analyst Shari Anne Brill, only slightly kidding. The real winner? ABC, of course. The always-popular “Dancing with the Stars” is enjoying a ratings boost, undoubtedly due to the novel casting. For those whose television tastes tend toward shows less awash in sequins, mirrors, feathers and fishnets, a brief recap: Many were surprised when the shy Bristol, once the country’s best-known teen mom, became a contestant on the hit show, where judges’ scores are combined with public votes to determine the winners.

RECYCLING from page one funded by property taxes. A year ago the cost jumped from $128 per ton to more than $144 per ton and by the end of this year will reach $146.42 per ton, driven by an increase in the tipping fee at the Concord Regional Solid Waste/Resource Recovery Cooperative (Coop) from $45.90 per ton to $66.80 per ton. In other words, each ton of solid waste removed from the waste stream by recycling represents an “avoided cost” of about $145 per ton. During the first 10 months of the year recycling reduced the cost of collecting, transporting and disposing of solid

waste by $123,212. Last month Bestway Disposal Services began collecting both trash and recyclables under a contract that pegs the cost of collecting recyclable materials at $10,000 per month, regardless of the tonnage. To the extent the “avoided costs” of handling solid waste exceed the cost of collecting recyclable materials, the overall cost of managing solid waste is reduced. For example, in October 89.73 tons of recyclable materials were collected at a cost of $10,000, which trimmed the cost of collecting, transporting and disposing of trash by $12,762 for a net reduction in solid waste expenditures of $2,762. Noting that the coop plans to construct a singlestream recycling facility, Saltmarsh pointed out that if it were already open and operating, the city would receive $30 for each ton of recyclable material it delivered. “That would more than double the net savings we posted over the 10 months,” she said, adding that she hopes the new recycling facility is up and running soon. But, Saltmarsh has her eye on much greater savings. “We recycle almost 7-percent of our trash,” she said. “That’s double from when we started and that’s great. But, the rule of thumb is that 60-percent of household trash can be recycled.” Saltmarsh estimated that an eighfold increase in recycling volume would reduce the annual solid waste budget, which is about $1.8-million, by more than half, saving property taxpayers more than $1-million. “And that does not include any revenue we would get from our recyclables,” she added.

Republican lawmakers pick conservative Alliance chief O’Brien to be next speaker of N.H. House CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire House Republicans nominated William O’Brien, a leader of a fiscally and socially conservative faction of lawmakers, to be the next speaker Thursday — a job he is all but assured of winning next month. With 298 seats in GOP hands, O’Brien will be elected speaker when the Legislature organizes Dec. 1. The Democrats’ only hope of playing a role in the outcome was if Republicans did not unite behind one candidate, but second-place finisher Gene Chandler — a former House speaker — moved to make O’Brien’s nomination unanimous among the GOP. “I’m looking forward to working with Republicans and Democrats in the New Hampshire House to fulfill the mandate for a new direction that the people of New Hampshire voted for on Nov. 2,” O’Brien said in a statement. O’Brien won on the second ballot, 142-133, over Chandler. John Reagan of Deerfield and Susan Emerson of Rindge also sought the job, but dropped out after there was no clear winner on the first ballot and threw their support to Chandler. Democrats chose Terie Norelli, the current House speaker from Portsmouth, as their leader on Saturday. Democrats lost control of both the House and Senate in the Nov. 2 election. O’Brien said afterward he plans to focus on building “an agenda of fiscal responsibility, affordable government and jobs.” But O’Brien also has been very active on social issues. He is co-chairman of the conservative House Republican Alliance, whose priorities include repealing gay marriage and enacting limits on abortion. The group also proposes reducing business taxes, requiring photo identification to vote and enforcing immigration laws. O’Brien argues allowing gays to marry weakened an institution meant to nurture children. He also opposed a bill last year to extending anti-discrimination protections to transgender individu-

Epsom school board chair steps down over ‘isims’ speech EPSOM (AP) — A New Hampshire school board chairman has resigned after an outcry over a Veterans Day speech in which he told students to repeat what he called five evil words: socialism, communism, progressivism, totalitarianism and liberalism. Gordon Ellis of Epsom says he didn’t realize his speech was objectionable until he arrived at an emergency school board meeting on Wednesday. He resigned as chairman, but kept his spot on the board. Ellis gave the speech in front of 470 kindergarten through eighth grade students at Epsom Central School. Ellis says he did not intend to be political and will make sure he watches what he says from now on. WMUR-TV says Ellis, a Vietnam veteran, claimed he was trying to teach students about enemies of the constitution.

als. O’Brien said during debate over the bill that it sought “to elevate a nebulous group to the sacred level we find in racial discrimination.” He called the bill unneeded and dangerous. Bills have been filed to repeal New Hampshire’s gay marriage law, which took effect in January, and to place limits on abortion. Democratic Gov. John Lynch signed the gay marriage law and a law to repeal a law requiring minors to notify their parents before an abortion. Republicans believe they have the votes to override any vetoes by Lynch on those issues. O’Brien tried unsuccessfully to win support earlier this year for capital murder legislation introduced after a Mont Vernon woman was killed with a machete in her bed during a burglary. The bill would have made home invasion killings a death penalty offense. O’Brien has filed a new bill that will be taken up this winter. One teenager has been convicted of first-degree murder in the case. Another youth faces trial on a murder charge in February and three others face sentencing on lesser charges. O’Brien, a 59-year-old lawyer from Mont Vernon, is entering his third House term. Chandler said Thursday that O’Brien will need to work with those who did not vote for him. “Obviously (the Republican caucus) is pretty evenly split. To get anything done, one side or the other has to compromise,” Chandler said. Chandler, 63, of Bartlett, served as speaker from 2000-2004. He decided not to seek the post for a third time in 2004 after an ethics complaint was filed against him for failing to report nearly $64,000 in gifts from lobbyists and supporters at corn roast fund-raisers. Chandler pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor related to the allegations, paid a fine and did community service. He called the failure to report the money a mistake and was re-elected. The legislative Ethics Committee recommended his expulsion in 2005, but the House voted instead to censure him and make him stand in front of Representatives Hall to accept a public rebuke. Afterward, many applauded him. At the time, O’Brien argued against expelling Chandler because it would disenfranchise the voters who elected him knowing about the charges against him.

Pooch Café LOLA

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Evening brings electric and progressive ideas. You’ll be a hit socially, if you’re in the mood. But if you’re not, you’ll still enjoy your own company as you do some of your favorite things tonight. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). One of Aesop’s fables declares that slow and steady wins the race. The reality: Slow and steady will indeed get you across the finish line. But if you want to get there before the others, a few bursts of speed will also be necessary. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Fame and power come with sacrifice. But so do anonymity and helplessness. Realizing that everything in life involves some kind of trade off, you decide to go for what you really want. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You realize when someone is not on your wavelength, but that doesn’t stop you from trying to communicate. This shows heart, but that’s not why you do it. You really want to make a connection. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The things that always worked well before may not be effective today. The rules have changed, and you don’t even know what the new rule is. This gives you the chance to experiment. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 19). It’s your year to shake it up, break your routine and expand your network. December is touched with glamour. January brings many occasions to laugh with people you’re comfortable around and also connect with people who challenge you. March opens a new source of income. Love signs are Sagittarius and Aquarius. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 15, 3, 19 and 50.

by Darby Conley

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your compassion reaches sublime heights. Not only will you knock yourself out to help others, but you’ll forgive yourself for whatever might have gone wrong in your past. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The way to happiness is not through unhappiness. You will not go through depressing and negative thoughts to wind up in a good place. Rather, it’s the small happy thoughts and feelings that lead to even greater joy. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Go through your finances and figure out what you have and what you need. The plans and projections you make will be lucky, especially when you resolve to balance your own needs before you reach out to help others. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your main concern is keeping up group morale. To that end, not everything needs to be brought up the moment you think of it. Make note of the points on which you disagree so that you can bring them up at an auspicious time. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Get the consent of everyone on your team before you move forward. They may not agree with the plan, but if they believe in you, that will count more than anything else. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You can’t solve the problem from the same frame of mind that created it in the first place. Conflict happens at one level of the mind, and its resolution happens at an entirely different level. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You feel lucky. You go about your life halfexpecting money to fall on you from the sky. Because of this optimism and the confidence it instills in you, the fortunes will favor you.

Yesterday’s Answer

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, November 19, 2010— Page 17

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, Nov. 19, the 323rd day of 2010. There are 42 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address as he dedicated a national cemetery at the site of the Civil War battlefield in Pennsylvania. On this date: In 1794, the United States and Britain signed Jay’s Treaty, which resolved some issues left over from the Revolutionary War. In 1831, the 20th president of the United States, James Garfield, was born in Orange Township, Ohio. In 1919, the Senate rejected the Treaty of Versailles (vehr-SY’) by a vote of 55 in favor, 39 against, short of the two-thirds majority needed for ratification. In 1942, during World War II, Russian forces launched their winter offensive against the Germans along the Don front. In 1969, Apollo 12 astronauts Charles Conrad and Alan Bean made the second manned landing on the moon. In 1977, Egyptian President Anwar Sadat became the first Arab leader to visit Israel. In 1985, President Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev met for the first time as they began their summit in Geneva. In 1990, the pop duo Milli Vanilli were stripped of their Grammy Award because other singers had lent their voices to the “Girl You Know It’s True” album.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, November 19, 2010— Page 19


Dear Annie: My son and daughter-in-law have a 14-yearold son and a well-endowed 12-year-old daughter, and the two of them behave like lovers. They will sit crammed together in the same chair with their arms wrapped around each other, holding hands with their legs entwined. If he goes outside, she follows. Their bodies are constantly touching each other. The even do this at family gatherings, and their parents seem oblivious. My granddaughter is usually the one who instigates this behavior, but my grandson goes along with it. My husband and I find it offensive, as does everyone else in the family. We are dreading the upcoming holidays. My son and his wife both work and are not in the house when these children come home from school, which makes me wonder what goes on when the kids are alone together for hours. My husband doesn’t want to say anything to our son because he fears it will cause a rift. Our daughter-in-law has never liked us and keeps her distance as much as possible. What is your opinion? -- Grandparents of Kissing Siblings Dear Grandparents: Parents need to supervise budding adolescents because their hormones and developing bodies can get them into trouble -- even with a sibling. Someone should speak to your son. If you are unwilling to do so, perhaps you could enlist a relative, friend or even one of the children’s school counselors to suggest he pay more attention to his kids. Dear Annie: When my wife and I were engaged, she bought a house in her name. We married five years ago, and she still has not put my name on our home even though all of my payroll checks are deposited into our joint account from which the mortgage is paid. I am not after her money or the house, but I wonder what

I can do to feel comfortable with this situation. We have three wonderful children, and we own two cars in both of our names, but not the mortgage. She makes more money than I do. Is this why? -- Confused Dear Confused: Have you asked your wife directly about this? Even if your income were not helping to pay for the mortgage, you are a married couple with children and these things should be in both of your names. Some women, out of self-protection, are reluctant to cede sole ownership of their possessions. However, were the situation reversed, she surely would expect you to add her name to the house. Unless your credit history makes you a risk, we suggest you discuss this with her and ask that she explain her reasoning. Dear Annie: I am writing in response to “Tom,” who met the girl of his dreams at a restaurant and is having difficulty handling rejection from her. He seems to be the victim of unrequited love, something I have experienced more than once. My heart goes out to him. Rejection is never easy, especially as we get older and see opportunities to find the right person slipping away. Unfortunately, for men, it seems that the person of our dreams is the college cutie who ignored us back in the day. Or maybe we were too busy pursuing an education and missed the chance to date during that time. As a 43-year-old male, I am adjusting my expectations and desires. There are many wonderful women closer to my age who would make terrific lifelong companions. I hope Tom gets over his desire for this much younger woman and searches for a more mature, yet equally desirable woman to share his life with. -- Trey Dear Trey: We hope so, too.

Ramblin’ Vewe Farm receives major contribution from Laconia Savings Bank GILFORD — Laconia Savings Bank has provided a contribution of $25,000 to help maintain the 300acre Ramblin’ Vewe Farm in perpetuity. Citing LAB’s support for the Farm’s mission, Executive Vice President – Investment & Trust Services Bob Esau commented, “we are pleased to be working with such a well regarded organization. The preservation of this farm and the educational opportunities it affords the residents of New Hampshire is a spectacular gift from the Persons Family and we have pledged our support to assist them in achieving their intended goal for Ramblin’ Vewe Farm.” Ramblin’ Vewe Farm’s mission is to conserve the heritage of working farms and rural landscapes. As part of their efforts they have enhanced a beautiful trail system in their 187 acre woodlands that many adults and children enjoy throughout the seasons. In the future, they hope to foster a variety of educational opportunities focused on both farming and the natural world. Those who already know of this hidden jewel utilize the farm’s hiking trails, visit the lambs, or just drive along Morrill Street to appreciate the open space and beautiful vistas. LSB understands the importance of preserving Ramblin’ Vewe Farm for our children, grandchildren, and future generations to come. Ramblin’ Vewe Farm’s Board wants to ensure that as Gilford and the surrounding towns’ population grows, Ramblin’ Vewe Farm will continue to be an oasis in a busy community. The Farm is raising funds to increase their endowment so that

it will support Ramblin’ Vewe Farm in perpetuity. The Board invites others to share its goal of preserv-

ing and protecting the natural beauty of Ramblin’ Vewe Farm.
