LACONIA — A former Belmont man was sentenced to 12 months in the Belknap County House of Correction yesterday after being convicted by a jury of two counts of misdemeanor criminal threatening that were classified as hate crimes. According to testimony and indictments, Paul Costella, 39, was a customer at the automotive department of Walmart in Tilton in November of 2012 when he became angered by an employee and went on an anti-Semitic rant, saying he was going to get a gun and “kill the Jews.” After an investigation by the Tilton Police, Costella was indicted by a Belknap County grand jury on June 3, 2011. He was tried by a jury in January of 2012, but the trial ended in a mistrial on January 19 after the jurors could not reach a unanimous decision. Belknap County Prosecutor Melissa see raNT page 6

‘Lincoln’ collects even dozen Oscar nominations

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Steven Spielberg had a great day at the Academy Awards nominations, where his Civil War saga “Lincoln” led with 12 nominations. It was not so great for Kathryn Bigelow, Tom Hooper and Ben Affleck, whose films did well but surprised — dare we say shocked? — Hollywood by failing to score directing nominations for the three filmmakers. “I just think they made a mistake,” said Alan Arkin, a supporting-actor nominee for Affleck’s Iran hostagecrisis tale “Argo.” “Lincoln,” ‘’Argo,” Bigelow’s Osama bin Laden manhunt thriller and Hooper’s Victor Hugo musical “Les Miserables” landed among the nine best-picture contenders Thursday. Also nominated for the top honor were the old-age love story “Amour”; the independent hit “Beasts of the Southern Wild”; the slave-revenge narrative “Django Unchained”; the shipwreck story “Life of Pi”; and the lostsouls romance “Silver Linings Playbook.” A mostly predictable see OSCARS page 6

NRA, one of the pro-gun groups that met with Biden during the day, rejected the effort to limit ammunition and dug in on its opposition to an assault weapons ban, which Obama has previously said he will propose to Congress. “The vice president made it clear, made it explicitly clear, that the president had already made up his mind on those issues,” NRA president David Keene said following the meeting. “We made it clear that we disagree with them.”

Opposition from the well-funded and politically powerful NRA underscores the challenges that await the White House if it seeks congressional approval for limiting guns and ammunition. Obama can use his executive powers to act alone on some gun measures, but his options on the proposals opposed by the NRA are limited without Congress’ cooperation. Obama has pushed reducing gun violence to the top of his domestic agenda following see BIDEN page 8

TAFT, Calif. (AP) — A 16-year-old student armed with a shotgun walked into class in a rural California high school on Thursday and shot one student, fired at another and missed, and then was talked into surrendering by a teacher and another staff member, officials said. The teen victim was in critical but stable condition, Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood told a news conference. The sheriff said the teacher at Taft Union High

School suffered a minor pellet wound to the head and declined treatment. The gunman had as many as 20 rounds of ammunition in his pocket, the sheriff said. When the shots were fired, the teacher tried to get the more than two dozen students out a back door and also engaged the shooter in conversation to distract him, Youngblood said. A campus supervisor responding to a call of shots fired also

began talking to the gunman. “They talked him into putting that shotgun down. He in fact told the teacher, ‘I don’t want to shoot you,’ and named the person that he wanted to shoot,” Youngblood said. “The heroics of these two people goes without saying. ... They could have just as easily ... tried to get out of the classroom and left students, and they didn’t,” the see SHOOTING page 10

QUETTA, Pakistan (AP) — A series of bombings killed 115 people across Pakistan on Thursday, including 81 who died in twin blasts on a bustling billiards hall in a Shiite area of the southwestern city of Quetta. Pakistan’s minority Shiite Muslims have increasingly been targeted by radical

Sunnis who consider them heretics, and a militant Sunni group claimed responsibility for Thursday’s deadliest attack — sending a suicide bomber into the packed pool hall and then detonating a car bomb five minutes later. It was one of the deadliest days in recent years for a country that is no stranger to

violence from radical Islamists, militant separatists and criminal gangs. Violence has been especially intense in southwest Baluchistan province, where Quetta is the capital and the country’s largest concentration of Shiites live. Many are ethnic Hazara who migrated from neighsee PAKISTAN page 11

N.H. mom guilty of sexually Flu season strikes early & hard in some places NEW YORK (AP) — From the Rocky Mountains cold. Over the holidays, 250 people were sickened at exploiting teen daughter to New England, hospitals are swamped with people a Mormon missionary training center in Utah, but

CONCORD (AP) — A New Hampshire lawyer remained stoic Thursday as a jury pronounced her guilty of exploiting her 14-year-old daughter to produce child pornography. Jurors had the federal case for less than an hour before convicting the 43-year-old woman of all eight counts — transporting her child across state lines to produce child pornography, possession of child pornography and six counts of sexual exploitation to produce child pornography. Her daughter — who did not testify and appeared in the courtroom for the first time to hear the verdicts — showed no visible reaction. The girl was whisked away right after the verdicts by federal victim advocate Jennifer Hunt, who asked reporters to refrain from approaching her. The convicted sex offender faces a minimum, mandatory prison term of 25 years and a maximum of 100 when she is sentenced April 22, U.S. Attorney John Kacavas said. Defense Attorney James Moir said it’s too soon to decide whether to appeal. He said neither he nor the defendant knew the 14-year-old was in the courtroom. The trial lasted only two days but jurors were presented with a series of sexually explicit videos that prosecutors said the mother made of her daughter having sex with two men on different occasions, and a video of the mother performing oral sex on her daughter in May 2012. Juror Peter Evans of Manchester said it was difficult case to deliberate, “but the evidence was pretty overwhelming.” “I feel confident we made the right decision,” said Evans. “She’s going to deserve whatever she gets.” Kacavas said he was not surprised by the speed with which the jury reached its verdicts. “This is a graphic case in which the defendant see EXPLOIT page 13

with flu symptoms. Some medical centers are turning away visitors or making them wear face masks, and one Pennsylvania hospital set up a tent outside its ER to deal with the feverish patients. Flu season in the U.S. has struck early and, in many places, hard. While flu normally doesn’t blanket the country until late January or February, it is already widespread in more than 40 states, with about 30 of them reporting some major hot spots. On Thursday, health officials blamed the flu for the deaths of 20 children so far. Whether this will be considered a bad season by the time it has run its course in the spring remains to be seen. “Those of us with gray hair have seen worse,” said Dr. William Schaffner, a flu expert at Vanderbilt University in Nashville. The evidence so far points to a moderate season, Schaffner and others say. It looks bad in part because last year was unusually mild and because the main strain of influenza circulating this year tends to make people sicker and really lay them low. David Smythe of New York City saw it happen to his 50-year-old girlfriend, who has been knocked out for about two weeks. “She’s been in bed. She can’t even get up,” he said. Also, the flu’s early arrival coincided with spikes in a variety of other viruses, including a childhood malady that mimics flu and a new norovirus that causes vomiting and diarrhea, or what is commonly known as “stomach flu.” So what people are calling the flu may, in fact, be something else. “There may be more of an overlap than we normally see,” said Dr. Joseph Bresee, who tracks the flu for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Most people don’t undergo lab tests to confirm flu, and the symptoms are so similar that it can be hard to distinguish flu from other viruses, or even a

the culprit turned out to be a norovirus, not the flu. Flu is a major contributor, though, to what’s going on. “I’d say 75 percent,” said Dr. Dan Surdam, head of the emergency department at Cheyenne Regional Medical Center, Wyoming’s largest hospital. The 17-bed emergency room saw its busiest day ever last week, with 166 visitors. The early onslaught has resulted in a spike in hospitalizations. To deal with the influx and protect other patients from getting sick, hospitals are restricting visits from children, requiring family members to wear masks and banning anyone with flu symptoms from maternity wards. One hospital in Allentown, Pa., set up a tent this week for a steady stream of patients with flu symptoms. But so far “what we’re seeing is a typical flu season,” said Terry Burger, director of infection control and prevention for the hospital, Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest. On Wednesday, Boston declared a public health emergency, with the city’s hospitals counting about 1,500 emergency room visits since December by people with flu-like symptoms. All the flu activity has led some to question whether this year’s flu shot is working. While health officials are still analyzing the vaccine, early indications are that it’s about 60 percent effective, which is in line with what’s been seen in other years. The vaccine is reformulated each year, based on experts’ best guess of which strains of the virus will predominate. This year’s vaccine is well-matched to what’s going around. The government estimates that between a third and half of Americans have gotten the vaccine. In New York City, 57-year-old Judith Quinones skipped getting a flu shot this season and suffered her worst case of flu-like illness in years. She was laid up for nearly a month with fever and body aches. “I just couldn’t function,” she said.

Power & powerlessness Years ago, when the candidate I was working for rejected my advice, I made the mistake of going back to the headquarters and telling my loyal staff (who together had formulated the rejected proposal) that our recommendation had been declined. I did my best, I told them, but I just couldn’t make the sale. One of my closest pals, and one of the smartest politicos I’ve ever known, took me aside to tell me I had made a monstrous mistake. I thought he meant my failure to sell our plan. No, he said, that was clearly impossible. The mistake was telling everyone I’d failed, rather than convincing them that, upon further reflection, I’d changed my mind and come to the conclusion, shared by the candidate, that our plan was flawed. You just admitted to half of the campaign that you are powerless, he explained. Far better in the long run for them to think you were just wrong. Wise advice. Someone should have told John Boehner. He emerged from the latest debacle not as the guy who stood up, but as the guy who gave up. He comes out of it not wrong, but irrelevant. On the day he was elected Speaker of the House, he was being tagged by friend and foe as the congressional equivalent of a lame duck, neither the leader of his party nor the leader of the House, the guy with the gavel, not the power, a man whose word does not mean a majority, even of his own whips. He may get invited to the White House in the future, but it will be the Senate leaders who cut the deal with the president, and the Democrats in the House — joined by a minority of Republicans, the splinter group in a party divided — who enact it. The Speaker could not even hold his own lieutenants. He might just as well have agreed with them. On the eve of the vote, the everpugnacious former Labor Secretary Bob Reich sent an e-mail exhorting Democrats that no deal would be better than a bad deal. Actually, as a Democrat, I disagree. The president might have been prepared to blame congressional Republicans, but he’s the president, the guy who couldn’t put the deal together. His State of the Union would have been a disaster, the very sort of ugly politics people voted

against. So there was a deal — a partial, unsatisfying deal that violated all of Boehner’s claims that Republicans weren’t ready to give on taxes, that dealt not at all with spending cuts, that was opposed by the majority of his party. House Republicans didn’t redeem themselves in the public’s eye; they looked like a divided, weak and increasingly irrelevant group. They didn’t stand on principle; they fell apart on politics. What could he have done? If he couldn’t get his party to the table to make a deal, then maybe the second best solution was not to advertise his weakness but to affirm his leadership, even if flawed. The result was a foregone conclusion. Boehner’s fate was not. He didn’t just lose. He gave up any vestige of power. Not an auspicious way to begin a new Congress. Publicly speaking, the folks who support the deal and the folks who oppose it can probably agree on one thing: The Speaker gets no credit with the former and plenty of blame from the latter. Lose-lose. There might have been no chance for him to win much, but losing with everyone is the one thing you want to avoid in politics — unless you are standing on principle in doing so. I never heard Boehner stand up and say that even if he were the only Republican to support it, he would make a deal and stand by it. I never heard him say he’d resign if no one followed it. When I complained to my friend that people would think I was wrong for doing whatever it was that I didn’t want to do, he told me that unless I was willing to resign over it (and maybe I should have), holding on to the appearance of power is more important than taking the heat both inside and outside. Yep. Boehner is now trying to double back, insisting he won’t play ball in the future, that his principles really are that. It might work. But I wouldn’t count on it. Power is easy to lose and hard to get back. (Susan Estrich is a professor of Law and Political Science at the University of Southern California Law Center.

Advance your own positions, sure, but respect those of others To the editor, I submitted a letter to The Sun a few weeks ago in which I mentioned I am a lifelong resident of the Holderness/ Sandwich area. In times past, people treated those with a differing point of view with respect. I am a hardcore conservative and do not agree with our president on much of anything. Never the less, I try to respect the views of others.

This brings me to the point of this letter. I do not own a gun. At 70 years of age and being an amputee I probably will not hunt again. However, I am 100 percent opposed to gun control as it is another excuse for big government to take away our freedoms. Guns do not kill; the person pulling the trigger does. Many liberals do not respect a difsee next page

LETTERS You have to get mad before things like a new jail get passed To the editor, When is enough, enough? It is now. The Belknap County’s insistence on building a 42.6 million dollar PRISON, which will also include $1.6 million MORE for personnel and maintenance is insulting. But there is more. The amount that has to be paid annually on the $42.6-million bond for 30 years will amount to between $2.5 and $3 million more. This item is not included in the regular budget. Why should this bother you? Everyone who lives in the county will find the reason in their tax bills or rent bills. Most people who get a tax bill or increase in their rent, believe it is city or town government’s fault. They don’t always associate increases in taxes or rents with what the county spends. Unfortunately, these cities and towns do not have the ability to cut the county budget. They only have to pay the bill. The City of Laconia alone pays over 20 percent of all of the county’s budget. But, wait, this is only part of the out of control spending. The county at present is looking for a 9-percent increase in their regular budget. It would represent approximately $250,000 more to be paid by Laconia than last year. We know that the increase in bond debt and additional personnel and maintenance is going to run over 3 million dollars. Next Monday, January 14, the Laconia City Council will host the Belknap

County Commissioners and the Belknap State Representative Delegation. There will be a lot of discussion on these two subjects and the city would like to see the public from all over the County and city take part in this discussion. Usually, people don’t come out for this kind of hearing, but once the budget is passed by the delegation and approval of loan for prison, it is too late, and we all know how people react when they get their tax bills or increase in rent. You have to get mad BEFORE these things get passed. Hopefully, there will be a good number of delegates and commissioners present at the meeting and that they will hear what the people want and do the right thing. When spending the taxpayer’s money we should ask, is it necessary. Can it wait? Will it do harm if it isn’t done right away? The commissioner’s comment that this should be done “ right” is always the politicians reason for spending more and building more than is necessary. More is not always better. The public is being told every day to do with less and they do. It is time for government to do with less. There are many reasons for delaying this project and reducing the present budget. These will be discussed at the meeting on Monday by the Council, and hopefully by you, the public. Councilor Brenda Baer Ward 4 - Laconia

Winter Farmer’s Market open every Sat. & Sun. through March To the editor, After wrapping up the first Tilton Winter Farmers’ Market of the season, I’m exhausted but excited about the wonderful, warm reception our farmers and other vendors received from the community. It was heartwarming to see so many new and returning visitors from near and far, coming to buy locallyproduced foods and goods from local N.H. vendors. Everyone was excited that the market has been extended to both Saturdays and Sundays to better accommodate busy family schedules. We received raves for the addition of fresh, N.H.-grown mushrooms, honey, dried beans, chutneys, vegan and gluten-free foods, granola, veggie burgers, body-care, beer, herbal products and other goods. Returning vendors featured a wonderful assortment

of local offerings, including fresh, NH-grown tomatoes, root vegetables, meats, cheeses, coffees, popcorn, wine, milk, yogurt, fudge, soups, baked beans, breads, baked goods, and so many other items. It was a true community spirit that helped me pull this market together again and thanks go to all participating vendors, and to our sponsors — The Gaudet family and AutoServe NH for their very generous donation of the space, to Northway Bank, Osborne’s Agway and Common Man’s Tilt N’ Diner for their generous sponsorship. This enables us to operate the Tilton Winter Farmers’ Market every Saturday and Sunday through March. Joan O’Connor, Director Tilton Winter Farmers’ Market Henniker

LETTERS The really positive aspect of solar is that it has a real pay-back To the editor, I read the letter from Mr. Steve Earl with great interest. I would like to thank him for pointing out his misconceptions in as far as it relates to solar PV. My opinion, just like Mr. Earl’s opinion, really does not matter in the Renewable Energy discussion. What is important are the hard facts. Solar PV is either grid tied, which means the energy produced through the system is dumped directly onto the grid spinning your meter backward, or it is a battery-based system which allows the owner of the system to use the generated power directly without involving the meter and the grid. Generally quality battery systems are more expensive and the batteries have a lifespan of 8-10 years. I would suggest the only time to use battery systems are when your property does not have access to the grid in the first place. If you are like the majority of us we are grid connected and our goal is to be grid neutral meaning we would like to produce the power needed to not have an electric bill. Until fairly recently the biggest hindrance has been the substantial upfront cost of buying a solar production system. System costs have dropped and production efficiency has increased dramatically. Panels produce more power and inverters convert more power for far less cost. Breaking a solar production system down to incremental factors is fairly meaningless, something akin to pur-

chasing a new car one part at a time. By the time you are done pricing your car one part at a time you will quickly realize you can’t afford to ever own a car in the first place and yet we do own cars and they are affordable. Looking at system cost is irrelevant to looking at system value. By way of example would anyone buy a home if the number we looked at was the amortized cost over 30 years? A $300,000 property costs $620,000 over the life of the mortgage. Would we ever pay $620,000.00 for a $300,000.00 property? Probably not and yet we enter into mortgages willingly. The really positive aspect of solar PV is that it actually has a pay-back unlike your car, furnace, electric bill, heating oil or propane bills. For people on fixed incomes nothing makes more sense than renewable energy. The reason is you become a fixed cost producer NOT a consumer. A real life example: 10kWatt system 72,000.00 installed Payback in year 4. No electric bill for the next 25 years. Net return on the life of the system (under warranty): $138,387.00 (190.41 percent). How many oil or gas fired furnaces have a return of investment of 190 percent or any payback at all? Monthly cost: less than the electric bill. John Ramsey Meredith

from preceding page fering point of view. This is clearly shown by the cartoon on Page 4 of today’s (Jan. 9) Sun. In depicting an NRA member/supporter as an ignorant person, the cartoonist actually is defining himself. He’s no different than the picture he draws. Sadly, it seems to me the editor of The Laconia

Daily Sun must feel the same way. Work hard to advance your own point of view; but respect the opinions of others with differing points of view and don’t sling mud. I believe that is what America is all about. Steve Currier Holderness

People on government assistance should give up right to vote To the editor, Not too long ago, I received an e-mail from a friend that made me change my mind about the young generation of future politicians that are one day going to run this country. All this young woman (21-years-old) wanted was to be put in charge and all I want is for her to have a chance to correct all the damage done to this country by week-kneed politicians who follow the bad leaders rather make waves doing as the people who elected them wanted them to do. The following is a quote from her mail: “Put me in charge of food stamps. I’d get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho’s, just enough money for 50 pound bags of rice and beans, blocks of cheese and all the powered milk you can haul away. If you want steak and frozen pizza, then get a job. Put me in charge of medicaid. The first thing I’d do is get women Norplant birth control implants or tubal ligations. Then we’ll test recipients for drugs, alcohol and nicotine. If you want to reproduce or use drugs, alcohol or smoke, then get a job. Put me in charge of government housing. Ever live in a military barracks? You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair. Your “home” will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions wil be inventoried. If you want a plasma TV or XBox 360 then get a job and your own place. In addition, you wil either present a check stub from a job each week or you will report to a government job. It may be cleaning the roadways of

trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you. We will sell your 22 inch rims and your low profile tires and your blasting stereo and speakers and put that money toward the “common good”. Before you rant and complain that I’ve violated someone’s rights, realize that all of the above voluntary. If you want our money, accept our rules. Before you say this would be “demeaning” and ruin their “self esteem”, consider that it wasn’t that long ago that taking someone else’s money for doing absolutely nothing WAS demeaning and lowered self esteem. If we are expected to pay for other people’s mistakes we should at least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices. The current system rewards them for continuing to make bad choices. AND while you are on the government subsistence, you no longer can VOTE! Yes that is correct. For you to vote would be a conflict of interest. You will voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a government welfare check. If you want to vote, then get a job.” This young woman should be commended for her wisdom, which seems to be a lot wiser that the people who keep these same politicians in office year after year hoping one of them will get on the band wagon and help struggling Americans who are forced to pay for all the ingrates.

LACONIA — A former Pittsfield man was convicted by a Belknap County jury Wednesday for his fourth conviction for drunken driving. He will be sentenced at a later date and could be ordered to serve as much as 3 1/2 to seven years in prison. Belknap County Attorney Melissa Guldbrandsen said Steven Houlne, 57, was arrested by Laconia Police Officer Holly Callanan after a concerned citizen reported seeing him operating erratically on Summer Street on June 19, 2011. Guldbrandsen said Houlne refused to submit to any field sobriety tests or a breathalyzer but several witnesses testified to his impairment, including that he had an open beer in the car.

Prosecuting Attorney Roni Karnis said “this is a good example of how important it is for citizens to fulfill their civic duty and report impaired drivers.” Guldbrandsen said no one was injured in Houlne’s case but this is his fourth conviction in less than 10 years and is therefore a felony. She said he will face an indefinite loss of his drivers license. Indictment paperwork obtained from Belknap County Superior Court show Houlne was convicted of DWI in March 2, 2007 in Concord District Court and was convicted twice for DWI on December 27, 2002 in Hookset District Court. — Gail Ober

RANT from page one Guldbrandsen brought Costella to trial for a second time in October of 2012 and he was convicted on October 25, 2012 of two enhanced misdemeanors counts of criminal threatening and one misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct. Costella maintained his innocence. In a phone call to The Daily Sun made the day before his sentencing, he said he had waited 45 minutes for an oil change and a female employee at Walmart noticed a picture of him and his daughter in his car posing with a flag that had a swastika. He said the woman assumed he was a Nazi and confronted him. “She started calling me a Nazi and a skin head,” Costella said. He also said that during his presentencing investigation, he expected Judge James O’Neill to order him to write a letter of apology to the three Walmart employees affected by his rant and he said he wasn’t going to do that because he didn’t do what they said he did. “I’m not like that person,” he said. In fact, as part of Costella’s sentenc-

ing yesterday, O’Neill ordered him to write a letter of apology as a condition of his sentence despite his attorney’s previous argument that she didn’t think it was appropriate. Costella’s complete sentence was no jail time for the disorderly conduct charge. He was ordered to pay a $500 fine plus $120 in court costs with half of it suspended on good behavior. For the first criminal threatening conviction he was sentenced to 12 months in the Belknap County House of Corrections. He must serve at least three months before he is eligible for a home confinement bracelet. O’Neill said the Department of Corrections could consider work release as long as he completed anger management therapy and drug and alcohol treatment. On the last criminal threatening conviction, Costella was sentenced to two to five years in the N.H. State Prison to be served consecutive to his House of Corrections sentence. The state prison sentence was all suspended pending his completion of the above conditions and his continued good behavior for 10 years.

bunch. But it’s baffling how Bigelow — the first woman to earn the directing Oscar for her 2009 best-picture winner “The Hurt Locker” — missed out on a nomination for one of last year’s most-acclaimed films. “Yes, it was a surprise,” Spielberg said of Bigelow. “But I’ve been surprised myself through the years, so I know what it feels like.” Spielberg was snubbed for a directing slot on 1985’s “The Color Purple,” which earned 11 nominations, including best picture. He also was overlooked for director on 1975’s “Jaws,” another best-picture nominee. “I never question the choices the academy branches make, because I’ve been in the same place that Kathryn and Ben find themselves today,” said Spielberg, who finally got his Oscar respect in the 1990s with best-picture and director wins for “Schindler’s List” and another directing trophy for “Saving Private Ryan.” ‘’I’m grateful if I’m nominated, and I’ve never felt anything other than gratitude even when I’m not — gratitude for at least having been able to make the movie. So I never question the choices.” Especially this time, when “Lincoln” has positioned itself as the film to

beat at the Feb. 24 Oscars. Its nominations include best actor for Daniel Day-Lewis for his monumental performance as Abraham Lincoln, supporting actress for Sally Field as Mary Todd Lincoln and supporting actor for Tommy Lee Jones as abolitionist firebrand Thaddeus Stevens. Oscar directing contenders usually are identical or at least line up closely with those for the Directors Guild of America Awards. But only Spielberg and “Life of Pi” director Ang Lee made both lists this time. The Directors Guild also nominated Affleck, Bigelow and Hooper, but the Oscars handed its other three slots to David O. Russell for “Silver Linings Playbook” and two real longshots: veteran Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke for “Amour” and newcomer Benh Zeitlin, who made his feature debut with “Beasts of the Southern Wild.” Zeitlin, whose low-budget, dreamlike film about a wild child in Louisiana’s flooded backwoods won the top honor at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, said he never expected to be competing “alongside the greatest filmmakers alive.” “I’m completely freaking out,” Zeitlin said. “Those guys taught me how see next page

Sanbornton cheese makers specialize in mozzarella, ricotta & . . . quark? By RogeR Amsden

‘’It’s sort of like cream cheese with a kick. It’s really versatile and can be used in a lot of recipes which call for cream. We make it several flavors, plain, honey and cinnamon, maple, and garlic and chive, which is our most popular flavor,’’ says Melia, who adds that it’s great on bagels and as a dessert cheese. She says that they create their own cultured buttermilk as the first step in making Quark, adding rennet to fresh milk and letting it stand in a cooler for 18 to 24 hours before processing it. ‘’It makes it chunky, When we were in Connecticut we developed our own starter culture for Quark,’’

she says. She says that the fresh mozzarella is made in a traditional manner with the milk placed in fine mesh bags that resemble pillowcases and allowed to drain until curds are formed. ‘’It takes a lot of babysitting and we use a PH meter to determine when its ready. It then goes into scalding water until it turns into a taffy like mixture. We then out it into a big metal bowl and cut it up and roll it into balls. The idea is to get as much calcium out of it as possible.’’ Melia says the ricotta cheese is made with whole milk and is produced in small batches and hand ladled for a rich creamy texture. She has over 20 years experience in the farming industry, as does her husband, who has spent his entire life in the dairy industry. She holds a master’s degree in agricultural education and taught Agricultural Science for over seven years before she started raising a family. Keefe says that she is hoping to make the farm store the centerpiece of operations at Swain Farm, which uses a diversified approach to make the best use of its resources. The farm has a herd of about 100 cattle, about equally split between milkers and beef cattle and sells sides of beef as well as pork products. ‘’We can custom cut meats for people and we’re looking to expand our milk sales from direct on-thefarm sales to local independent stores, farmers’ markets and restaurants,’’ says Keefe. She says that Swain Farm will hold an open house on Saturday, January 26 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at which people will be able to tour the farm and see where their food comes from ‘’We’re going to have cheese samples and tours so that kids can see the animals and get to know more about farms,’’ says Keefe, who is also an artist and will have her paintings on display.

Lee, who won the directing Oscar for “Brokeback Mountain,” agreed that there were surprises — but pleasant ones, particularly for Zeitlin’s inclusion. “Newcomers, veterans, a European,” Lee said. “It’s great company, and it’s an honor to line up with them, and encouraging because there is a newcomer.” Colleagues of snubbed filmmakers were not so happy. “That put a damper on my enthusiasm,” ‘’Argo” co-star Arkin said of Affleck, an A-lister who’s arguably proving himself a better director than actor.

“I thought his work was the work of an old master, not somebody with just two films under his belt. I thought it was an extraordinary piece of directing.” “I would have loved him to have been recognized in this,” Hugh Jackman, a best-actor nominee as Hugo’s tragic hero Jean Valjean for “Les Miserables,” said of director Hooper. “But no one will be able to take away the achievement, nor really that the eight nominations that ‘Les Miz’ has are more shared with him than with anyone.” see next page


SANBORNTON — Quark, a German cheese with a sweet flavor and soft texture which is largely unknown outside of German communities across America, has arrived in the Lakes Region. ‘’It’s almost like a cream cheese,’’ says Leigh Melia, who along with her husband, Harold, have started the Lake Winni Cheese Company, which specialize in soft, fresh cheeses which also includes mozzarella and ricotta. The Melias and their two daughters moved to Meredith in October from Lebanon, Connecticut, where they ran what she describes as a small hobby farm of their own with chickens, dairy cattle and pigs,. Since shortly after moving here they’ve been making their own cheeses at the Swain Farm on Hunkins Pond Road. ‘’We were scouring the countryside to find a place where we could use the milk from our five cows to make cheese. We needed a place with a commercial kitchen and were looking at places like the American Legion that had one. We found about Swain Farm from the people at Beans and Greens in Gilford, who told us that they sold fresh milk from the farm.’’ says Harold. When they talked with Betsey Keefe from Swain Farm about their ideas from making cheese they found exactly what they were looking for, a commercial kitchen with milk processing equipment. ‘’It’s worked out just great,’’ says Keefe, who works with her parents, David and Elaine Swain, to keep the last dairy farm in town, and perhaps the only one remaining in Belknap County, running as a commercially viable operation. Leigh Melia says that while in Connecticut they had a lot of German customers for their Quark, which she says becomes an instant favorite of those who try it.

The VHS pile that was on the VCR when I was born was past Spielberg movies, and that’s why I started wanting to do this, was watching them thousands and thousands of times.” Other nominees were caught off guard over how the category shook out. “I would be lying if I didn’t say I was surprised,” Russell, a past nominee for “The Fighter,” said about Bigelow.

SANBORNTON — Quark, a German cheese with a sweet flavor and soft texture which is largely unknown outside of German communities across America, has arrived in the Lakes Region. ‘’It’s almost like a cream cheese,’’ says Leigh Melia, who along with her husband, Harold, have started the Lake Winni Cheese Company, which specialize in soft, fresh cheeses which also includes mozzarella and ricotta.

The president put Biden in charge of an administration-wide task force and set a late January deadline for proposals. “I committed to him I’d have these recommendations to him by Tuesday,” Biden said Thursday, during a separate White House meeting with sportsmen and wildlife groups. “It doesn’t mean it’s the end of the discussion, but the public wants us to act.” The vice president later huddled privately with the NRA and other gun owner groups for more than 90 minutes. Participants in the meeting described it as an open and frank discussion, but one that yielded little movement from either side on longheld positions. Richard Feldman, the president of the Independent Firearm Owners Association, said all were in agreement on a need to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and people with mental health issues. But when the conversation turned to broad restrictions on high capacity magazines and assault weapons, Feldman said Biden suggested the president had already made up his mind to seek a ban. “Is there wiggle room and give?” Feldman said. “I

But the administration was hoping to soften their opposition in order to rally support from pro-gun lawmakers on Capitol Hill. Biden’s proposals are also expected to include recommendations to address mental health care and violence on television and in movies and video games. Those issues have wide support from gun rights groups and pro-gun lawmakers. The vice president also met Thursday with representatives from the entertainment industry, including Comcast Corp. and the Motion Picture Association of America. He’ll hold talks Friday with the video game industry. During his meeting with sporting and wildlife groups, Biden said that while no recommendations would eliminate all future shootings, “there has got to be some common ground, to not solve every problem but diminish the probability that our children are at risk in their schools and diminish the probability that firearms will be used in violent behavior in our society.”

from preceding page Composer Alexandre Desplat, who wrote the music for “Zero Dark Thirty” and “Argo” and earned a best-score nomination for the latter, said he was puzzled over Affleck and Bigelow’s exclusion. “I think they both deserved to be nominated,” Desplat said. “Unfortunately, I don’t decide.” “Zero Dark Thirty” has had backlash in Washington, where some lawmakers say it falsely suggests that torture produced a tip that led the U.S. military to Bin Laden. It’s hard to imagine that affecting the film’s Oscar nominations, though, given Hollywood’s history of playing loose with facts in depicting true-life stories. The academy’s directing snubs virtually take “Argo,” ‘’Les Miserables” and “Zero Dark Thirty” out of the best-picture race, since a movie almost never wins the top prize if the filmmaker is not nominated. It can happen — 1989’s “Driving Miss Daisy” did it — but a directing nomination usually goes hand-inhand with a best-picture win. The nominations held other surprises. “Amour” won the top prize at last May’s Cannes Film Festival but mainly was considered a favorite for the foreignlanguage Oscar. It wound up with five nominations, the same number as “Zero Dark Thirty,” which came in with expectations of emerging as a top contender. Along with best-picture, director and foreign-language film, “Amour” picked up nominations for Haneke’s screenplay and best actress for Emmanuelle Riva as an ailing, elderly woman tended by her husband. “It’s the last stage of my life, so this nomination is a gift to me, a dream I could never had imagined,” Riva said. “Michael’s talent is to make the film real. ... That’s why it touched the world. We are all little, fragile people on this earth, sometimes nasty, sometimes generous.” Riva is part of a multi-generational spread: At 85, Riva is the oldest best-actress nominee ever, while 9-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis is the youngest ever for her role as the spirited bayou girl in “Beasts of the Southern Wild.” Spielberg matched his personal Oscar best as “Lincoln” tied the 12 nominations that “Schindler’s List” received. Two of Spielberg’s stars could join the Oscar super-elite. Both Day-Lewis and Field have won two Oscars already. A third would put them in rare company with previous triple winners Ingrid Bergman, Walter Brennan, Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep. Katharine Hepburn holds the record with four acting Oscars. A best-picture win would be Spielberg’s second, while another directing win would be his third, a feat achieved only by Frank Capra and William Wyler, who each earned three directing Oscars, and John Ford, who received four. “Lincoln” also was the ninth best-picture nominee Spielberg has directed, moving him into a tie for second-place with Ford. Only Wyler directed more best-picture nominees, with 13. “I think Steven is a full-fledged genius. I think he has transformed the motion-picture industry more than once, and he’s constantly pushing the envelope and changing,” Field said. “He stands alone. And he has the most profound respect, and he’s a scholar of John Ford and William Wyler and many others. ... He’s a scholar of all of this because he’s so endlessly curious.”

Plymouth’s O’Connor headed for St. J.

ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) — The Vermont town of St. Johnsbury has a new interim manager. Merelise O’Connor of Plymouth, N.H., started this week. She tells the Caledonian-Record her most pressing priority is building a municipal budget before the end of the month. O’Connor was town administrator in Plymouth. She also was deputy director of the Governor’s Office of Energy and Community Services under former New Hampshire Gov. Jeanne Shaheen. O’Connor most recently served as assistant executive director of the New Hampshire Municipal Association. She was provided to St. Johnsbury through Municipal Resources Inc., which selectmen voted to hire last week.

GILFORD from page one they were talking about. When asked, Selectman Kevin Hayes said it was likely that, if the warrant article was passed, the tax collector position would likely be held by the same person who is elected to be town clerk. As it stands now, the town clerktax Collector position is one position, elected every three years. Denise Gonyer has held the position since 2005 and all totaled, has worked in the office for 25 years. She was recently feted by the N.H. Tax Collectors Association. Gonyer was at Wednesday’s selectman’s meeting for the discussion about changing this year’s voting location. After the meeting she said the selectmen’s discussion was the first time she had heard about the possible warrant article affecting her position. When reached yesterday she declined comment. Last year and after selectmen reduced the staffing in Town Clerk-

Tax Collector Office, Gonyer made a motion at the annual deliberative session of town meeting to add $12,500 into the budget to hire a part-time employee. Although the motion passed and the money was eventually added to the bottom line of the town budget, selectmen refused initially to hire a parttime employee — deciding instead to commission an evaluation of the operations of the Town Clerk-Tax Collector Office. The independent evaluation was performed by Municipal Resources, Inc. of Meredith and recommended adding a 20 hour position to the office staff, which selectmen did immediately after getting the report. The MRI study didn’t address whether or not the town clerk-tax collector position should be divided into two separate positions. Selectmen said they would decide whether or not to put the article on the town meeting warrant at their January 23 meeting.

SHOOTING from page 2 sheriff said. “They knew not to let him leave the classroom with that shotgun.” The shooter didn’t show up for first period, then interrupted the class of 28 students. Investigators had not yet had a chance to interview the student and so had no immediate word on a motive or whether the attacker had a previous disciplinary record. Nor did they know where he got the shotgun. The Sheriff’s Department did not release the boy’s name because he was a juvenile and had yet to be charged. But many students and community members said they knew the boy and said he was often teased, including Alex Patterson, 18, who went to Taft with the suspect before graduating last year. “He comes off as the kind of kid who would do something like this,” Patterson said. “He talked about it a lot, but nobody thought he would.” Trish Montes, who lived next door to the suspect, said he was “a short guy” and “small” who was teased about his stature by many, including the victim. “Maybe people will learn not to bully people,” Montes said. “I hate to be crappy about it, but that kid was bullying him.” Montes said her son had worked at the school and tutored the boy last year, sometimes walking with him between classes because he felt sorry for him. “All I ever heard about him was good things from my son,” Montes said. “He wasn’t Mr. Popularity, but he was a smart kid. It’s a shame. My kid said he was like a genius. It’s a shame because he could have made something of himself.”

to a hospital in Bakersfield. Officials said a female student was hospitalized with possible hearing damage because the shotgun was fired close to her ear, and another girl suffered minor injuries during the scramble to flee when she fell over a table. Officials said there’s usually an armed officer on campus, but the person wasn’t there because he was snowed in. Taft police officers arrived within 60 seconds of first reports. Bakersfield television station KERO reported receiving phone calls from people inside the school who hid in closets. About 900 students are enrolled at the high school, which includes ninth through 12th grades. Authorities went room by room through the school and expected to spend the day checking backpacks to make sure no other weapons were on campus. Wilhelmina Reum, whose daughter Alexis Singleton is a fourth-grader at a nearby elementary school, got word of the attack while she was about 35 miles away in Bakersfield and immediately sped back to Taft. “I just kept thinking this can’t be happening in my little town,” she told The Associated Press. “I was afraid I was going to get hurt,” Alexis said. “I just wanted my mom to get here so I could go home.” Taft is a community of fewer than 10,000 people amid oil and natural gas production fields about 120 miles northwest of Los Angeles. The attack there came less than a month after a gunman massacred 20 children and six women at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., then killed himself. That shooting prompted President Barack Obama to promise new efforts

LHS girls’ varsity team 7-1 after win over Plymouth On Tuesday Evening the Laconia High School girls’ varsity basketball team beat Plymouth to improve to 7-1 on the season. Coach Jeff Greeley said a lethargic start saw the Sachems with a 18-7 lead at the half. “We came alive in the second half to win by 20 points, 47-27,” he said. Cali Swormstedt led the offensive charge with 12 points, all from behind the three-point arc. The team plays next at Franklin on Friday.

Laconia-Winnisquam hockey dealt overtime loss at Kearsarge The Laconia-Winnisquam ice hockey team fought Kearsarge Regional High School to a tie after three periods, only to suffer an unfortunate 4-5 overtime loss on Wednesday. Coach T.J. Galligan said his team faced a 1-4 deficit at the start of the third period. Matt Missert and Brandon Martin each scored, then a Dakota Tyno goal with 31 seconds left forced the game into overtime. Galligan said, “We outplayed them in overtime, hit three posts and had nine shots to their three, but a bad bounce of the puck sent them in on a breakaway to end the game. Great comeback, just a little short.”

LMS girls’ A team picks up wins over Gilford, Kingswood and Belmont The Laconia Middle School girls’ A basketball team picked up a trio of wins within the past week. The first of the three wins was a home game on January 4, with Gilford as the visitors. Laconia won with the score of 29 to 21. Jera Kirk scored nine points, Alyssa Miner scored six and Amelia Clairmont had five points. Coach Chick Tautkus said, “Katie George and Lily Johnson led a third quarter group, with stingy hustle and defense, that propelled the girls to another hard-fought victory.” The team followed that effort with a 38-29 victory earned January 8 at Kingswood.

GILFORD — Chip Veazey has been coaching basketball at Gilford High School ‘’one year at a time’’ ever since 1982-83 and during his tenure the former Laconia High School sharpshooter (class of 1973) has chalked up over 400 wins as a head coach. Unlike many high school coaches, Veazey is not a teacher at the school where he coaches, instead working at his family’s business, Boulia-Gorrell Lumber Company. His philosophy is simple. ‘’Play hard, play together and play to the best of your ability,’’ says Veazey, who says that he always tries to get the most of the talent available to him. ‘’Getting the kids to play up to their ability and be focused and work hard is what counts,’’ says Veazey, who gives his current Gilford’s Josh Joyce looks for an opening to pass around Winnisquam’s Spencer Pevine as Gilford team, which is 6-0 folhead coach Chip Veasey watches the play during Tuesday’s game at WRHS.

Laconia Leafs drop 5-2 game against Northern Cyclones The Laconia Leafs started the final stretch of the season on Wednesday in Hudson, where they took on the Northern Cyclones. The newly named Assistant Captain, Matt Howard of Oswego, N.Y. got the start between the pipes. Howard stopped 40 out of 45 shots on the afternoon. The Atlantic Junior Hockey League second place team Cyclones netted the first three goals of the game over the first two periods. In the third Laconia made a run to tie the game when Cody Steadman (White River Jct, Vt.) found the back of the net twice in a matter of 19 seconds. Villa Rica, Georgia’s Nick Turner had a hand in both goals with a pair of assists. With Laconia down by one, the Cyclones stuck again to put the game out of reach for the Leafs. The Leafs will be back in action next Thursday, when they head back to Cyclones Arena to try and even things up against their interstate foe. LMS from preceding page composure, which he credited in securing the win. Lastly, on January 9, the team picked up a 50-24 win over Belmont.

GILFORD from preceding page Partridge and Jack Athanas have been steady contributors, along with Patrick Scannel and that he likes his team’s ability to move the ball around and get it to the player in the best position to take a shot. Currently Gilford is one of only three undefeated teams in Division III along with Campbell 7-0 and always tough Conant 6-0. To date Gilford’s only loss, one which doesn’t count in the regular season’s standings, was a 66-46 lost to a tall and talented Prospect Mountain team (4-2), which reached the state Division III finals last year, in the championship game of the annual Lakes Region Holiday Basketball Tournament which was

played over Christmas vacation. ‘’They’re a formidable team with four big inside players. They’re a very physical team and we weren’t getting our best shots against them,’’ said Veazey, who says that he is looking for the Eagles to step it up they meet Prospect Mountain in regular season play in February, a game which might prove to be a preview of this year’s Division III title game if Gilford continues to come together as a team. The Golden Eagles face a big test tonight when they host a tough Berlin team which is currently 6-1 on the season and appears poised to make another post season run.

DENVER (AP) — The eight teams left in the NFL playoffs can thank their special teams for a good part of their success. That’s one reason players are still upset Commissioner Roger Goodell has floated the idea of abolishing kickoffs altogether. Baltimore Ravens return specialist Jacoby Jones, who returned two kickoffs for touchdowns this season, said if the league gets rid of the electrifying plays, “I’m going to retire. I will go (ballistic). ... If they take out kickoffs, they’re going to hate me in this league.” The idea is only a suggestion, one Goodell says the

league will consider in the offseason for safety reasons, but players are vehemently opposed to such a radical change they contend would shake the foundation of America’s most popular sport. “I haven’t found anybody that likes the idea, because, first of all, the sport is called football, so you can’t keep taking the foot part of it out,” Denver Broncos punter Britton Colquitt said. “It would also be really confusing if they were like, ‘Stay tuned for kickoff,’ and there was no kickoff, you know? What are they going to say, ‘Stay tuned for the start of the game’? “Boooring!”

EXPLOIT from page one made the video evidence that speaks for itself,” Kacavas said. The defendant —who has been held without bond since her arrest in November — remains in custody. In their final argument Thursday, prosecutors played the defendant’s own words — recorded during various expletive-laden jailhouse telephone calls to her parents in December — calling her daughter a liar and blaming her for her predicament. “This is not her daughter’s fault,” U.S. Attorney John Kacavas said. “Tell her by your verdicts she should have been a mother.” Moir argued that his client did not force or prompt her daughter to engage in the sex acts she videotaped. “You can hate her. You can be morally outraged by what she did,” Moir told jurors. “You can have these emotions but you have to put them aside when you deliberate.” Kacavas countered that the government didn’t have to show the defendant “caused” her daughter to engage in the sexual conduct depicted in the videotapes. “All she had to do was use or employ this child in making child pornography,” Kacavas said. “She sexually exploited her child.” The final prosecution witness Thursday was FBI agent James Scripture, a computer forensic examiner. He testified that all the explicit videos the jury saw Wednesday were on the defendant’s computer, including some that were uploaded from her iPhone. He said the video of the defendant performing sex acts on her daughter was created a week before the defendant took the girl to Canada and videotaped her having sexual intercourse with a 19-year-old she’d met online. The defense called no witnesses. Two men testified they had sex with the defendant and with her daughter multiple times during separate encounters in 2012, including a weekend-long encounter in Ontario, Canada in May 2012 — three weeks after the girl had turned 14. Both men said the defendant videotaped several of the sexual encounters. The Associated Press doesn’t typically identify victims of sexual assault; it is not naming the mother to avoid identifying the girl.




Pastor slated for inaugural withdraws over anti-gay preaching (AP) — The evangelical pastor chosen to give the benediction at President Barack Obama’s inauguration withdrew from the ceremony Thursday after remarks surfaced that he made two decades ago condemning the gay rights movement. The Rev. Louie Giglio of Passion City Church in Atlanta said in a statement he withdrew because it was likely that the “prayer I would offer will be dwarfed by those seeking to make their agenda the focal point of the inauguration.” Addie Whisenant, a spokeswoman for the Presidential Inaugural Committee, said the committee had chosen Giglio because of his work to end human trafficking. Giglio organizes the Passion evangelical conferences that draw tens of thousands of young people. “We were not aware of Pastor Giglio’s past com-

ments at the time of his selection and they don’t reflect our desire to celebrate the strength and diversity of our country at this inaugural,” Whisenant said in a statement. The liberal website ThinkProgress posted audio of the sermon Wednesday. In the talk, which the pastor said he gave 15 or 20 years ago, Giglio cited Scripture and called same-sex relationships sinful and an abomination. He warned congregants about what he called the “aggressive agenda” for acceptance of the “homosexual lifestyle.” And he recommended the writings of an advocate for therapy that aims to convert gays and lesbians into heterosexuals. Repeatedly in the sermon, Giglio urged congregants to welcome gays and lesbians to the church and said God loves them.

WASHINGTON (AP) — For 30 years, Jack Lew has had a hand in some of the biggest economic deals negotiated in Washington. What awaits him if he’s confirmed as treasury secretary could far exceed any challenge of the past — a triple-decked potential crisis that will test his experience the moment he opens his office door on the third floor of the Treasury Building Lew, nominated for the job Thursday by President Barack Obama, has honed his skills in the trenches of fiscal policy, helping forge major deals encompassing Social Security and budgets for the likes of former Speaker Tip O’Neill and President Bill Clinton. Obama highlighted that experience in announcing Lew’s selection, an unmistakable nod to the fast-approaching deadlines to raise the government

borrowing limit, avert deep and immediate spending cuts and extend government operations. “I trust his judgment,” Obama said. “I value his friendship. I know very few people with greater integrity.” Flanked by Lew and outgoing Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner in the White House’s ornate East Room, Obama in effect underscored the nation’s changing economic landscape. In Geithner, Obama had a longtime international finance specialist with the Treasury and the Federal Reserve who took office in 2009 at the height of the nation’s banking crisis. In Lew, currently the White House chief of staff, he has a premier budget expert and close ally as the government plunges into its next struggle over debts and deficits.

PAKISTAN from page one boring Afghanistan. The billiards hall targeted Thursday was located in an area dominated by the minority sect. In addition to the 81 dead, more than 120 people were wounded in the double bombing, said police officer Zubair Mehmood. The dead included police officers, journalists and rescue workers who responded to the initial explosion. Ghulam Abbas, a Shiite who lives about 150 yard (meters) from the billiards hall, said he was at home with his family when the first blast occurred. He was trying to decide whether to head to the scene when the second bomb went off. “The second blast was a deafening one, and I fell down,” he said. “I could hear cries and minutes later I saw ambulances taking the injured to the hospital.” Hospitals and a local mortuary were overwhelmed as the dead and wounded arrived throughout the evening. Weeping relatives gathered outside the emergency room at Quetta’s Civil Hospital. Inside the morgue, bodies were laid out on the floor.

The bombs severely damaged the three-story building where the pool hall was located and set it on fire. It also damaged nearby shops, homes and offices. Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, a Sunni militant group with strong ties to the Pakistani Taliban, claimed responsibility for the attack. Hazara Shiites, who migrated from Afghanistan more than a century ago, have been the targets of dozens of attacks by Lashkare-Jhangvi in Quetta over the past year, but Thursday’s was by far the bloodiest. Human Rights Watch sharply criticized the Pakistani government for not doing enough to crack down on the killings and protect the country’s vulnerable Shiite community. It said more than 400 Shiites were killed in targeted attacks in Pakistan in 2012, including over 120 in Baluchistan. “2012 was the bloodiest year for Pakistan’s Shia community in living memory and if this latest attack is any indication, 2013 has started on an even more dismal note,” said Ali Dayan Hasan, Pakistan director at Human Rights Watch.

Similarly, today a lot of excitement will spring from a small package. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Instead of searching far and wide for your next adventure, search close and narrow. The mystery you can solve inside yourself will make all things possible. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You will get many chances to make a first move, but this new moon in your sign is one of the most powerful start dates of the year for you. Seize the opportunity. Claim your destiny. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Since most people don’t listen, and you do, you’ll find it easy to make a favorable impression. You’ll wow someone with your insightful remarks -- made possible by focused attention and careful listening. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Whatever you’ve been thinking about, go ahead and do it! You don’t have to have all of the information and resources you need to get started. A singular intention is enough. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 11). Your emotional intelligence goes up a few points in the next six weeks as you find new ways of relating and bonding with your loved ones. What you observe in February helps you build an acute social awareness that you’ll later utilize in an important breakthrough. New professional goals will be met in August. Leo and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 4, 44, 1 and 15.


ARIES (March 21-April 19). You can’t be in two places at once. Also, if you leave all your doors open, you’ll live in a very insecure place where unwanted elements can drift in and out. You have to close some doors to fully go through others. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Hard work is usually uncomfortable, and sometimes it hurts. You’ll feel better when it’s done. Later, you’ll be proud of the leaps of experience and the maturity you gained by knuckling down. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be mingling, trying to figure out who will be a help to you in the weeks to come. Think of social environments as labs to learn more about yourself. Be aware of how you feel around certain people. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Whether you’re making a commercial purchase or an energetic investment in another person, feelings of attraction can make you overlook red flags. Being very excited isn’t a good reason to rush forward. Be more judicious. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you can give your understanding, encouragement and acceptance to another person, you can certainly give it to yourself. It doesn’t matter which comes first, but definitely do both. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Boundaries, in their many forms, serve a real purpose these days. The fences you build will establish territorial lines and also assign responsibility. They also offer protection and a greater sense of control. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Under these practical skies, it’s easy to get caught up in work, and you’re far less likely to get caught up in a daydream. So give yourself credit for any fantasizing you can manage; it will improve

Yesterday’s Answer

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, January 11, 2013— Page 17

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, Jan. 11, the 11th day of 2013. There are 354 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 11, 1913, the first enclosed sedantype automobile, a Hudson, went on display at the 13th National Automobile Show in New York. On this date: In 1805, the Michigan Territory was created by an act of Congress. In 1861, Alabama became the fourth state to withdraw from the Union. In 1908, President Theodore Roosevelt proclaimed the Grand Canyon National Monument (it became a national park in 1919). In 1927, the creation of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences was proposed during a dinner of Hollywood luminaries at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. In 1935, aviator Amelia Earhart began an 18-hour trip from Honolulu to Oakland, Calif., that made her the first woman to fly solo across the Pacific Ocean. In 1942, Japan declared war against the Netherlands, the same day that Imperial Japanese forces invaded the Dutch East Indies. In 1943, the United States and Britain signed treaties relinquishing extraterritorial rights in China. In 1963, the Beatles’ single “Please Please Me” (B side “Ask Me Why”) was released in Britain by Parlophone. In 1964, U.S. Surgeon General Luther Terry issued the first government report that said smoking may be hazardous to one’s health. In 1972, East Pakistan changed its name to Bangladesh. In 1977, France set off an international uproar by releasing Abu Daoud, a PLO official behind the massacre of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics. In 1995, 52 people were killed when a Colombian airliner crashed as it was preparing to land near the Caribbean resort of Cartagena — however, a 9-year-old girl, Erika Delgado, survived. One year ago: Joran van der Sloot (YOHR’uhn VAN’-dur-sloht), the longtime suspect in the still unsolved disappearance of American Natalee Holloway in Aruba, pleaded guilty in Lima to the 2010 murder of a Peruvian woman, Stephany Flores; he was sentenced to 28 years in prison. Today’s Birthdays: Producer Grant Tinker is 88. Actor Rod Taylor is 83. Composer Mary Rodgers is 82. The former prime minister of Canada, Jean Chretien (zhahn kray-tee-EHN’), is 79. Actor Mitchell Ryan is 79. Actor Felix Silla is 76. Movie director Joel Zwick is 71. Country singer Naomi Judd is 67. World Golf Hall of Famer Ben Crenshaw is 61. Singer Robert Earl Keen is 57. Actress Phyllis Logan (TV: “Downton Abbey”) is 57. Musician Vicki Peterson (The Bangles) is 55. Actress Kim Coles is 51. Actor Jason Connery is 50. Contemporary Christian musician Jim Bryson (MercyMe) is 45. Rock musician Tom Dumont (No Doubt) is 45. Rhythm-and-blues singer Maxee Maxwell (Brownstone) is 44. Movie director Malcolm D. Lee is 43. Singer Mary J. Blige is 42. Musician Tom Rowlands (The Chemical Brothers) is 42. Actor Marc Blucas is 41. Actress Amanda Peet is 41. Actor Rockmond Dunbar is 40. Actress Kristolyn Lloyd (TV: “The Bold and the Beautiful”) is 28.

LACONIA – With two highly successful comedy nights in the books, Pitman’s Freight Room in Laconia kicks off the 2013 season with another high powered show as Brad Mastrangelo (Las Vegas, Comedy Central, Tonight Show, cruise ships) and Chris Pennie Brad Mastrangelo (Courtesy photo) (Comedy Central, CMTV) will take the stage Jan. 19 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15 and seats may be purchased in advance by contacting Pitman’s at (603) 527-0043. “We have had two outstanding shows,” said Pitman’s owner Dick Mitchell. “Even though the last show was close to Christmas we still had nearly 100 people in the room. “We had a number of repeat attendees, but also had a large number who were first timers. I think the word is getting out as to how good the shows are.” Also appearing will be Chris Pennie, a Boston area star who has appeared on Comedy Central and CMTV where he was a finalist in the CMTV comedy competition. Mastrangelo has appeared on Comedy Central and the Tonight Show and is one of the most sought after acts in the business. Mastrangelo’s unique routine hits home with audiences of all backgrounds as he relates tales of family, marriage, fatherhood and countless other topics. A frequent writer for Jay Leno’s Tonight Show monologue, Mastrangelo’s observational comedy has earned him rave reviews and spots on the best comedy stages around the country. “I’m looking forward to this show,” said Mastrangelo. “I’ve heard a lot about the room from other comics who have worked Pitman’s. “The comedians I’ve spoken to have said the room is great and the atmosphere is unlike that of any of the rooms we are used to working,” added Mastrangelo referring Pitman’s unique décor which includes antiques, steamer trunks which serve as tables, along with couches and easy chairs scattered throughout the regular seating. Among the previous comedians who have performed at Pitman’s are Mark Scalia, Mitch Stinson, Artie Januario and Jimmy “PJ” Walsh. All are Boston area headliners who work or have worked Las Vegas. “This is a great room,” said Januario who appeared at the Dec. 15 show. “It has a great feel and the crowd was extremely receptive.’’

SANBORNTON — The First Fruits Food Pantry, which was organized by members of Second Baptist Church, 322 Upper Bay Road, Sanbornton, distributed 40+ Christmas boxes filled with a turkey and all the components of an old fashion Christmas dinner on Wednesday December 19. Another 40-50 boxes were given out as the usual monthly distribution to families in the Sanbornton area. Church members are aware that many families, especially those with children, are struggling to keep their heads above water these days. Second Baptist began this local outreach in November 2005 and operated out of the local town hall. A year later the congregation voted to appropriate the funds to construct and furnish the First Fruits Food Pantry and has been distributing complete boxes of food goods to 35-45 families on a monthly basis ever since, not to mention emergency needs throughout the month. Those who feel moved to support this ministry with funds, goods or volunteer time can contact the church office at 524-5996. The church holds worship on Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, January 11, 2013— Page 19


Dear Annie: My husband and I recently moved to the city where my husband’s family lives. One of his brothers has been married for two years. (It’s his third wife.) “Pete” is a likable guy who often arranges fun activities. Pete moved into his wife’s house when they married. She had a teenage daughter, a dog and a cat. Pete got rid of all three. He is obsessive-compulsive and doesn’t like to clean up after pets and couldn’t tolerate his wife’s daughter. The girl now lives with her father, who isn’t a great parent, so she sometimes sleeps in the park. We don’t know what he did with the animals. Pete also made his wife sign over her house because she wasn’t paying her portion of the mortgage and bills. Pete’s wife confides in me, and while she accepts everything he does, she is miserable. My husband and I feel guilty hanging out with Mr. Good Times when he is creating so much pain for his wife and stepdaughter. How do we continue accepting fun invites when we know he is such a control freak? I realize I can’t interfere in his marriage, but I don’t want him to think we condone his treatment of his wife and stepdaughter. The fact that Pete sees nothing wrong with his actions is disturbing. What can we do? -- Worried Sister-inLaw Dear Worried: Abusers often come across as charming guys. But we don’t know what’s really going on. The pets could be fine, the daughter might be OK if her biological father stepped up, and if Pete’s wife wasn’t paying the mortgage, having the house in his name may have been justified. However, all of these things together make Pete’s behavior questionable, if not pathological. If he is forcing these changes onto his wife and she feels trapped, please encourage her to call the Domestic Violence Hotline ( at 1-800-799-SAFE. And speak up. Tell Pete you find his behav-

ior disturbing. Dear Annie: My sister and I are trying to plan a nice dinner for our parents’ 50th wedding anniversary. We would like to invite about 30 close family members and friends to a restaurant that our parents like, but footing the bill for everyone’s meal would be difficult. Would it be OK to add this sentence to the invitation: “We chose a restaurant that we think is affordable to all. Gifts are not required. Your presence will be gift enough.” Or do you have another suggestion? -- Want To Do the Right Thing Dear Want: In other words, you want the guests to pay for their own meals. That necessitates rephrasing the entire invitation because you are asking them to host themselves. Try this: “Please join us in taking our parents out to their favorite restaurant.” Dear Annie: “A Guy in Virginia” asked whether it was OK to look at a woman’s tattoo. I’d like to take this opportunity to clarify sexual harassment. It has a very strict legal meaning at the federal and state level in order to regulate how people behave in the workplace. It has nothing to do with a guy checking out some woman in the grocery. It’s sexual harassment if the person in authority says, “If you don’t sleep with me, I will fire you” -- or not give you a raise, flunk you, etc. It’s sexual harassment if it creates a hostile work environment -- a pattern of looking at pornography at work, making lewd comments or sexist jokes, or displaying suggestive calendars or photos. It is not sexual harassment to say, “I like your hair,” although a pattern of personal remarks that make someone uncomfortable would eventually constitute a hostile work environment. It is NOT about what happens outside the workplace. So if you don’t want someone to stare at you, don’t wear revealing clothes, get a tattoo or wear pink hair. -- BTDT in the Northeast

Plymouth State University announces creation of Division of Online and Continuing Studies PLYMOUTH — As the world moves into the 21st century, education is taking different forms and paths; Plymouth State University is embracing the value of online and continuing education with the creation of the Division of Online and Continuing Studies (DOCS), formerly the Frost School of Continuing and Professional Studies. DOCS will serve undergraduate, online students – reflecting the changing educational needs of full and part –time students as well as students who want a combination of evening, daytime and online courses. Dr. Nancy Betchart, Dean of PSU’s Division of Online and Continuing Studies, said the change reflects PSU’s goal of offering quality, college level courses and degree programs to adults and working professionals. “We have seen a tremendous response to our online course offerings over the last 8 years and saw almost 3000 enrollments in 2012. By entering PSU through DOCS, students have priority for online and evening classes or they can blend online, evening, and daytime classes in a schedule that meets their needs,” Betchart said. “We are pleased to now offer four different degree programs 100% online (Criminal Justice, Communications/Media, Nursing and Business Administration),

but will continue to work with students who prefer evening classes or a blended approach. Out staff is committed to helping students who are trying to balance their education with work and/or family responsibilities find a program and schedule that works.” DOCS offers opportunities for commuting, working, and/or non-traditional students to continue their educations by completing a degree or just taking courses for professional development with a variety of options. — Students may be admitted to PSU through DOCS and earn a PSU degree through 100% online degree programs or through a blended approach of face-toface (evening and/or daytime) and online courses. — Students can take online, evening or daytime courses part-time without being formally admitted. — Non-credit courses are also offered for those seeking educational enrichment, professional development opportunities and summer camps for youth. — DOCS offers College Level Examination Program (CLEP) testing – another way to expedite progress toward a degree. — Students may apply or enroll for fall, spring or summer terms

GILFORD — Roger Bailey of Gilford will talk at the Guys’ Night Out program of the Gilford Community Church on Thursday night, January 17 which gets underway at 6 p.m. Bailey has a new invention called the AIR (Amphibious Ice Rescue) RESPONDER. He has also created a company in Gilford that produces Amphibious Ice Rescue equipment. This equipment will be used by first responders to rescue people on water that is either open or iced over. The AIR RESPONDER is like a hydro-plane boat powered by an off the shelf snowmobile. The night begins at 6 p.m. with socializing, followed by dinner catered by Ellie Murphy at 7 p.m. The cost for the entire evening is $10 per man and reservations are needed by January 14 and can be

made by calling the church office at 524-6057. The Gilford Community Church is located at 19 Potter Hill Road in Gilford Village just off of Rt. 11A. All men in the Lakes Region are invited to attend .

from preceding page Cook, RN. “These staff members are committed to the people in our care. They are not only careful to do everything to the highest possible quality standard, but they also go the extra mile to create an environment that is warm, comfortable, and homelike for our residents. “This year, like last year, the surveyors continued to be impressed not only with the quality of care we provide, and the level of excellence in our operation, but also with the interactions

they saw between staff and residents, and the genuine love that our staff feel for the people in our care. I would like to thank the Forestview staff for their hard work and dedication—it shows. Not only in something like a deficiency-free state survey, but also in the happiness and satisfaction of our residents and families every day.” Forestview Manor is an assisted living facility offering a range of care, and specializing in care of residents with Alzheimer’s, dementia, and memory loss.
