LACONIA — The man arrested Wednesday morning for allegedly manufacturing methamphetamine in a downtown apartment is being held on $100,000 cash-only bail after appearing in court yesterday. Affidavits filed by police indicate Jeffrey Waterman, 45, kept a handwritten diary detailing his various experiments with meth making, in one case, noting that a batch made on a date he noted as Jan. 11 with a 10-pack of Sudafed nearly “blew up” because he was “mixing quickly.” He also allegedly wrote the capsules were hard to crush. Police said yesterday they received a tip Tuesday about Waterman’s alleged activities and by Wednesday morning had secured a warrant to search 614 Main St. Apt 34. Police supervisors said they evacuated a portion of Main and Pleasant Streets because of the volatile nature of methamphetamine and the chemicals used to make it. see METH page 11

LACONIA — Juliette Low brought together a handful of girls in Savannah, Ga. in March of 1912, forming an organiza-

tion that would become known as the Girl Scouts. In the century since, millions of girls have passed through the organization, which has grown to be the largest worldwide association of women and girls.

There are dozens of former Girl Scouts and scout leaders at the Taylor Community. Yesterday, they gathered to celebrate the organization’s centennial by reviewing see GirL SCOUTS page 8

And this is what we’ve been praying for?

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Memphis officials on Thursday approved naming a city street after the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., nearly 44 years after the civil rights leader was killed in the city. The 10 members of the Memphis and Shelby County Land Use Control Board voted unanimously to re-name a nine-block downtown stretch as Dr. Martin Luther King Avenue. Previously called Linden Avenue, it runs in front of the FedExForum, where the Memphis Grizzlies play their home games, and parallel to Beale Street, the famous tourist drag. The street also runs near the Clayborn Temple, where King rallied with striking sanitation workers days before he was assassinated by James Earl Ray on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel on April 4, 1968. King also led a march on Linden Avenue during the strike.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Pentagon leaders scrambled Thursday to contain damage from an Internet video purporting to show four Marines urinating on Taliban corpses — an act that appears to violate international laws of warfare and further strains U.S.-Afghan relations. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta called Afghan President Hamid Karzai to offer assurances of a full investigation and the top Marine general promised an internal probe as well as a criminal one. Investiga-

tors moved quickly to identify and interview at least two of the four Marines. They were members of a battalion that fought for seven months in former Taliban strongholds in southern Afghanistan. Their unit, the 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines, returned from Helmand province to its home base at Camp Lejeune, N.C., last September. Marine officials said that a battalion officer confirmed to investigators on Thursday, based on his examination of the video, that the four men depicted uri-

nating had been members of the battalion. Two have since moved on to other units. As the video spread across the Internet in postings and re-postings, U.S. officials joined with Afghans in calling it shocking, deplorable, inhumane and a breach of military standards of conduct. It shows men in Marine combat gear standing in a semicircle urinating on the bodies of three men in standard Afghan clothing, one whose chest was covered in blood. see VIDEO page 8

WASHINGTON (AP) — Fixed mortgage rates fell once again to a record low, offering a great opportunity for those who can afford to buy or refinance homes. But few are able to take advantage of the historic rates. Freddie Mac said Thursday the average rate on the 30-year fixed mortgage fell to 3.89 percent. That’s below the previous record of 3.91 percent reached three weeks ago. Records for mortgage rates date back to the 1950s. The average on the 15-year fixed mort-

gage ticked down to 3.16 percent. That’s down from a record 3.21 percent three weeks ago. Mortgage rates are lower because they track the yield on the 10-year Treasury note, which fell below 2 percent. They could fall even lower this year if the Fed launches another round of bond purchases, as some economists expect. Average fixed mortgage rates hovered around 4 percent at the end of 2011. Yet many Americans either can’t take advan-

tage of the rates or have already done so. High unemployment and scant wage gains have made it harder for many people to qualify for loans. Many don’t want to sink money into a home that they fear could lose value over the next few years. Mortgage applications have fallen slightly on a seasonally adjusted basis over the past four weeks, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association.

Alabama court declares Natalee Holloway dead 6 years after Aruba disappearance BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — The parents of Natalee Holloway looked on somberly as a judge on Thursday declared their child dead, more than six years after the American teenager vanished during a high school graduation trip to the Caribbean island of Aruba.

“We’ve been dealing with her death for the last six and a half years,” Dave Holloway said after a brief hearing. He said the judge’s order closes one chapter in a long ordeal, but added: “We’ve still got a long way to go to get justice. Natalee Holloway disappeared in Aruba on

Michael Barone

Romney is connecting with conservatives & tea party To win just under 40-percent of the vote in a primary with five active candidates is pretty impressive, even for a candidate like Mitt Romney, who started off with significant advantages in New Hampshire. Yes, he is well-known there because he was governor of nextdoor Massachusetts, had run before and owns a house on Lake Winnipesaukee. But the exit poll indicates Romney held his own among independents, tea party supporters and late deciders. He didn’t lose ground in the heat of the campaign, despite his ragged performance in Sunday’s debate (he was obviously not candid about why he didn’t run for re-election as governor) and his Monday statement, instantly regretted if I read the videotape right, that “I like being able to fire people who provide services to me.” Romney easily exceeded the 25-percent ceiling that many critics perceived, and he’s running at least a bit above that in the few postnew-year polls in the next primary states, South Carolina and Florida. Reporters covering New Hampshire had a hard time getting a feel for why people supported Romney. Polling indicated that Romney voters were more firm in their support than backers for other candidates. But while Romney had no trouble filling the venues of his relatively few late campaign events (held at times and in places inconvenient for hostile media and hecklers), you didn’t encounter many Romney fans in the crowds at other candidates’ events. What you did encounter was many voters who said that they were undecided and, in the last week, many who said they had narrowed their choice down to Jon Huntsman and Rick Santorum — two candidates with significant differences on foreign policy and an emphasis on cultural issues. My sense is that these were tactical voters, waiting to see which candidate had momentum and gauging their mettle at campaign appearances. In relatively secular New Hampshire, they clearly broke more for Huntsman, who lived in the state and held more campaign events than anyone else, than for Santorum, who delighted in taking hostile questions on issues like same-sex marriage, or Newt Gingrich, who alternated between events on issues like brain science and attacks on Romney’s business career. The exit poll makes it clear that Romney has connected with many selfdescribed conservative and tea party

Republicans. His standard speech includes encomiums of the Founding Fathers and quotations from the Declaration of Independence. Americans in recent years have, as best-seller lists testify, a growing interest in the Founders, and one of the achievements of the tea party movement is that voters are measuring candidates’ policies against the Founders’ principles. All six active candidates have obtained tickets to South Carolina, some first-class and some wangled with the political equivalent of frequent-flier miles. Rick Perry flew into New Hampshire for the two 10-hours-apart debates at which he pitched his appeal to South Carolinians and then flew right back south. Santorum got his ticket from his tied-for-first finish in Iowa, and Gingrich, suspiciously specific about the contents of his supposedly independent super-PAC’s 27-minute antiRomney film, is headed down there, as well. Huntsman, though far behind Romney in New Hampshire, did well enough to get the chance to make his case to South Carolinians. And Ron Paul, who finished second, was going to keep on keeping on no matter how he did. South Carolina Republicans have a tradition of backing winners, going back to Strom Thurmond’s backing of Richard Nixon over Ronald Reagan at the 1968 national convention. In 1988, Thurmond protege Lee Atwater engineered South Carolina’s early primary, just before Southern Super Tuesday, to help his candidate, George H.W. Bush. Ever since, South Carolina, a state that voted from 88-percent to 99-percent Democratic in Franklin Roosevelt’s days, has clinched the Republican nomination, and not for the candidates deemed most conservative: Bush in 1988 and 1992, Bob Dole in 1996, George W. Bush in 2000 and John McCain in 2008. No nonincumbent Republican presidential candidate has won both the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary before. Romney has, though with an asterisk in Iowa, and his flight path to the nomination seems clear. But he’s going to have competition, which is good for him and for the Republican Party, and victory is not assured. He still has to earn it.

LETTERS The unfairness is that too few are already carrying too many To the editor, It is PEOPLE who create PROSPERITY! NOT GOVERNMENT. Every attempt by government to change the normal ebb and flow of economic cycles ends in a total absolute train wreck of destruction (or bankruptcy). Look at it’s recent intervention in housing, where endless liquidity was supplied by the fed at generational low interest rates combined with the lowering of mortgage eligibility standards (controlled by government) dictating that 55-percent of mortgages HAD TO BE to people with LOW or NO credit. They also facilitated Wall Street at every turn. Have you noticed not ONE, NOT ONE single person out of the tens of thousands that work on Wall Street has been indicted by the Justice Department for breaking or even BENDING ONE law out of the thousands that control mortgage lending. Why? Because they didn’t! Interestingly though, SIX top executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (government) were indicted last week and if convicted will spend many years in jail. It seems they tried to COVER UP the huge percentage of high risk mortgages carried on the books at those places. If the housing crash that put tens of millions out of work and caused millions more to be tossed from their homes was Wall Street’s fault, why the hell hasn’t a whole army of people been charged with criminal activity? You sure know Obama wouldn’t be hesitant to “hang” any of that crowd if he thought he could make even one case stick. Government induced, financed and greased the entire housing collapse and anyone with an IQ above 10 is well aware of it and agrees with it. People below 10 — the jury is out on that. A nation is only as good as the collective intelligence, imagination and genius of its citizens. Government does not create or produce a single PENNY, PEOPLE DO! All government does is SPEND and allocate capital in ways that only strengthen it’s powers and broaden it’s coverage — the IDENTICAL approach of every DICTATOR on earth. Just step back and look at what Obama is trying to do. Make government huge and MORE CONTROLLING only strengthens HIS powers to FINANCIALLY reward those who vote for him. People MAKE money and

percent or more of America now have the insane idea it’s Governments job to GUARANTEE every person minimal economic prosperity. Socialists want to abdicate THEIR responsibility as individuals to government, believing government must ALWAYS feed them, house them, pay their education (including college) and pay all their medical bills. Democrats are like teen agers that never want to leave home and take care of themselves. These lunatics just do not get it ! Every time we make any persons living standards the responsibility of some OTHER person we compromise and DILUTE the structural integrity from which our prosperity originates. Capitalism is so successful it is copied by every emerging country form China to Vietnam with the same wonderful results. Hundreds of millions of people across Asia are being lifted from poverty for one reason only..... CAPITALISM. There has never been a greater more VISIBLE contrast in history between the rewards of capitalism and the dangers of socialism. The countries of Europe, long steeped in socialist, run away spending and poor productivity, now find themselves imploding under the weight of their own debt. They either suffer severe austerity forced on them by their debt holders or go bankrupt. International bond traders push them all toward the bankruptcy cliff and they are left with ZERO OPTIONS. Look at the mess there that DEBT and Obama-style spending has caused. In 1979, 65-percent of all income taxes were paid by the top 20-percent of earners. Today the top 20-percent pay 86-percent of all income taxes paid. It is beyond absurd and sheer insanity to state that the top earners in this country are not paying their FAIR share. That is pure DEMOCRATIC fantasy, political clap trap without evidence. In essence about 25-percent of this country are now carrying 100-percent of the country on their backs with 50-percent of Americans freeloading off the rest not paying a nickel in income taxes. If there is a tax UNFAIRNESS it is that two FEW are already carrying too MANY. The people yelling the wealthy do not pay enough are those trying to break into the freeloading zone. Tony Boutin

LETTERS Do I have this right? Laws don’t kill people — people kill people? To the editor, Thirty-two GUNed down at Virginia Tech, 12 GUNed down at Columbine, five GUNed down at Red Lake High School, 166 police officers GUNed down this year (and they were armed). According to Antonet Piper, there have been many more school shootings here in the United States. Now Piper, who represents the gun breed of American Society, endorses arming students in our schools. While the NRA and gun proponents propagandize that “guns don’t kill people, people kill people”, they conveniently neglect to tell us that in 68 to 72-percent (depending on sources) of violent crime murders, the “people” choose handguns as their instrument of killing. Piper and other gunaholics are quick to blame legislation, or laws if you will, with the death of these students. But if we follow her logic, wouldn’t it reason that “Laws don’t

kill people — people kill people”? I’m alarmed that Piper suggests curbing school violence by advocating arming more “people” with their favorite weapon for killing — the handgun. We can also thank House Republican Speaker O’Brien and his cronies at the Statehouse for legislation that will not only allow us to protect our homes, but will now allow us to gundown our neighbors in the street if we “feel threatened”. Before all the NRA members, Free Staters and other gun advocates write-in to whine and complain about being picked on, I want to be clear that I have no desire to take away their precious guns or their 2nd Amendment rights; I just don’t want the barrels of their guns in my face and their gun culture jammed down my throat. L.J. Siden Gilmanton

The good news is there are alternative ways to grow our food To the editor, What’s on Your Plate? Most likely, it is fossil fuels reconstituted as veggies, meat or fruits. The problem is the fossil fuel cupboard — it can’t be re-stocked in our lifetime. As long we return to the cupboard day after day, year after year, we will eventually end up like Old Mother Hubbard. The good news is that there are alternatives, ways to produce our food that uses the sun’s energy as it comes in, instead of stored solar energy in the form of fossil fuels. Even better news is that these alternatives are very well suited to growing food here in N.H., a state known for rocky soil and uneven terrain, but blessed with

an abundance of water! To learn more and get inspired, plan to attend the film showing of “A Farm for the Future” at the Laconia Public Library, on Wednesday, Jan. 25 from 6:30-7:45 p.m. The film is sponsored by Back to Farming at Laconia State School, a grassroots citizen group advocating for the return of agriculture to the former Laconia State School property, as part of a larger effort to expand the capacity of our local food system. Free and open to the public — refreshments provided. For more information contact me at 5288560 or barkers@alumni.unh.edu. Karen Barker Laconia

LETTERS Mormons subjugate the Bible to the Book of Mormons To the editor, In response to Alma Allred: I’m sorry that you disagree with me, but understand this, I have actually researched my assertions. No, I am not a Mormon but I have had numerous conversations with many, and to a man, prior to 1985, not one of them claimed to be a Christian. An LDS yes, but not a Christian. I have also had many visits from your young missionaries, and neither do they claim to be Christian, but LDS. You question my interpretation of The Bible, yet it is the Mormons who have deemed it necessary to re-interpret scriptures for which hundreds of manuscripts exist which support traditional Christianity. As to your critiques of my citations: 1. You say Smith believed Jesus, the apostles and the prophets, and yet your teachers disparage Apostle Paul, who writes in the first century. They disparage him to dismiss his teachings which fly in the face of “different gospels”. In fact, he writes “But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed.” Galatians 1:8. Sorry to say this, but it looks as if Paul saw Joseph Smith (and Moroni) coming. 2. I didn’t say Jesus was a God Child, but LDS say Lucifer (Satan) is and by extension that we are all God’s children (Mormon teaching) and they are brothers. But let me ask you this, if Jesus is Jehovah and Lucifer is a only a God child, what gave him the right to question God Jehovah’s plan of salvation. Does the pot say to the potter, “why hast thou made me thus?” 3. I Corinthians

11:11 does not make any reference to your teaching of theosis. You welcome to cite your books references, but they carry no weight. 4. Your (general) own website, FAIRmormon.org reads under the heading of “Original sin” quoting Elaine Pagels, “Original sin is the innovation. It is a post-biblical novelty without scriptural support. Given that the doctrine is explicitly repudiated by modern revelation, the Saints (LDS) feel no need to accept it. The articles citations: Elaine Pagels, “The Politics of Paradise: Augustine’s exegesis of Genesis 1-3 versus that of John Chrysostom,” Harvard Theological Review 78 (1985): 68. Again, you try to discount Pauline teaching, but real Christians know the truth. There are far too many deviations from traditional Christianity in LDS theology to attempt to debate them here, but on this I stand, you quote the verse “by their fruits you shall know them.” But that doesn’t tell the whole picture. Jesus also said to those who claimed to do good deeds, “depart from me, I never knew you.” Mormons subjugate The Bible to the Book of Mormons (their modern revelation), while The Bible warns against that very thing. You tell me, are you Christians, or do you come preaching another gospel? In your own words, “Jesus is Jehovah in Mormonism.” I will quote Peter. Jesus asked, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered him, “You are the Christ.” Well that works for me. And to clear this up, the title of my letter is in the words of the editor, not my own.

Keynesians fix a broken bubble by folding it into an even bigger one To the editor, It’s mid-week and once again readers are treated to the never ending nonsense of James Veverka. Today, he tells us the economy is doing just fine, Keynesian economics are working here and in Europe. Really? Remind me, what’s the unemployment rate again, well over 8-percent? That’s not counting those who are under employed, those who have given up looking; count them and the percent doubles. How about the housing market? Must be booming according to Jimmy’s warped perceptions. Manufacturing? Cost of energy, food, clothing, automobile or anything else you can think of? No Jim, it’s not “just fine”, here or in Europe. Readers should recognize that in Greece, France, or wherever when governments try to put austerity measures in place the unions come out in force rioting and burning. Political leaders beholding to unions for their positions fold under the pressure. That’s not Keynes working, that’s mob rule. Dumb, self destructive mob rule. The problem with Keynes is it creates economic bubbles which eventually burst. To fix the problem they fold

the broken parts into another, larger bubble and viola it’s fixed. That is until that one bursts then the cycle is repeated. There comes a point though, where it doesn’t work any more and we are fast reaching that point. Seventeen trillion in debt and growing toward twenty. The rest of the world isn’t going to finance our extravagance and governmental overspending forever and when the credit line runs out, “turn out the lights, the party’s over”. No more Social Security, no more Medicare, Obamacare, unemployment, food stamps, child care, no more viable government to take care of those who refuse to take care of themselves. What happens then Jimmy? Rioting and burning? If that happens can the nation hang together or will the dramatically polarized factions tear the nation apart or will a military coup “save” the nation? Personally I’d rather not find out. I’m hoping people have enough sense to recognize that Keynes doesn’t work long term, socialism has never, ever worked anywhere and that it’s time to pay down the credit cards. Steve Earle Hill

LETTERS How does paying people not to produce grow an economy? To the editor, After reading several tirades by Mr. Vaverka, I decided it was time to respond: It is blindingly apparent that Mr. Vaverka thinks he can win his arguments via sarcasm, name calling and truth‐twisting. In his latest rant, he claims that the CBO, along with many financial institutions, believe that President Obama’s defeated American Jobs Act would have created 2-million jobs. The only website where I was able to find this figure was americanprogress. org (Center for American Progress), an extremely left-wing progressive group created by the DNC and funded by George Soros, Herb Sandler, and other extreme progressives. The website fails to mention that the CBO, in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, estimated that the bill would create a direct government spending increase of about $175-billion. With a total price tag of $447-billion, that works out to about $223,500 per hypothetical job created. How about the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act? According to the CBO, the ARRA created or saved about 3.6-million jobs at a cost of $821-billion, or $228,055 per job. Perhaps this is an acceptable return‐ on‐investment for Mr. Vaverka, but not for most financially responsible Americans. How about energy prices, Mr. Vaverka? What has President Obama done to make energy prices more affordable? He has placed a moratorium on drilling in the Gulf (while Cuba, Mexico, China, Russia and others take advantage of our absence), delayed the Keystone XL Pipeline, and shutting down drilling in the Permian Basin of Texas (to save a lizard). Want to stop worrying about Middle East turmoil and its effect on oil prices, Mr. Vaverka? Elect a president that is serious about reducing our dependency on Middle East oil by tapping our abundant resources rather than wasting $535 million in ARRA funds

on a failed Solyndra solar panel scandal and bowing to the Saudi king. What about the “rich folk the GOP are protecting”, Mr. Vaverka? Does that include the rich folks in Congress? In 2010, seven of the top 10 richest members of Congress were Democrats. The Wall Street investors that the “Occupy Wall Street” crowd protested contributed over $34-million to Congress in 2009, 62-percent going to the Democratic Party. Why aren’t there any “Occupy Hollywood” protestors, protesting the rich and famous Hollywood crowd? Could it be because, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, in 2010 the movie and TV industries donated nearly $6-million to Democrats versus only $1.4-million to Republicans? I think Mr. Vaverka is barking up the wrong (money) tree. So Mr. Vaverka, how does paying people not to produce grow an economy? As with all well-intentioned government programs, welfare as a prime example, unemployment benefits are being scammed by people who love to work the system. I know there are many of genuinely unemployed people in need of assistance, but just like the union‐made, employee pension Ponzi scheme that brought General Motors and Chrysler to their knees (until the taxpayers bailed them out), an economy cannot grow if it is paying billions of dollars to people who are generating no saleable goods or services. Also, Mr. Vaverka, the failed policies in Europe are liberal, not conservative. Just look at the early retirement policies of Greece, and the government‐ mandated paid vacations, by most EU countries, that more than twice exceeds the average 14 days taken by American workers. Just like a true liberal, if you can’t make your point with facts, resort to name calling and sarcasm. Good job Mr. Vaverka! Roger Davis Belmont

WINTER PRE-OWNED TRACTOR BLOWOUT!

Tenure doesn’t mean no consequences for acting irresponsibly To the editor, Professor Sandy, what an example you set. When one embarks on the path of picking and choosing which laws you will or will not follow, I posit to you, that the journey may not end as well as you might hope. The New Hampshire State prison is full of people who have made the same decision you are advocating. Full of people who feel there is insufficient reason to follow that law. NHSP is full of people who broke the unjust law. Full of people victimized by the system; set upon by the man. You assert, “that I am solely responsible for the emotional and physical safety of my students while they are in my class and my judgment reigns supreme.” Well that’s wrong. First each of has responsibility for ourselves. Second, legally, PSU bears some responsibility for you and your students on campus. Third, let’s just say not everyone agrees that your judgment reigns supreme. You assert, “No one tells me what to do in my classroom.” Oh really, per-

maybe the president of PSU would care to take umbrage with that. If not the president perhaps the chancellor of the university system might wish to have some input? You probably are tenured. That does not mean there are no consequences for behaving or speaking irresponsibly. Laws are not made to be broken. Just as we don’t get to pick and choose which speed limits are enforceable we don’t get to decide which other laws to dishonor. Bad laws are not made to be broken. They may need changing but there is a difference and it is not as small as you seem to believe. I support your right to have an opinion. I expect that you will express that opinion. Advocating often, loudly and with great vigor is to be applauded. Your choice of how to advocate in this situation seems suboptimal. The logic for that assertion is simple professor: Two wrongs don’t make a right. Maybe your mother should have said that to you at some point. Just my honest opinion. Marc Abear

Virginia Hutton laughs as she watches her great-grandaughter Emma Noel attempt to eat a deliciously messy s’more during a centennial celebration of the Girl Scouts held at the Taylor Community on Thursday. (Laconia Daily Sun photo/Adam Drapcho)

GIRL SCOUTS from page one its history, singing in rounds and eating a lunch of Sloppy Joes, ants-on-a-log and s’mores. Jessica Riendeau, day camp coordinator for the Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains, the chapter which includes all of Vermont and New Hampshire, was a guest speaker for the celebration. She said that records show that there were Girl Scouts in New Hampshire at least by 1917. At its peak, in the 1990s, Riendeau said the local chapter had nearly 25,000 members. These days, there are about 15,000 Girl Scouts in New Hampshire and Vermont, and she estimates that as many as one in five adult women in the state have taken the Girl Scout promise. Riendeau said the organization has evolved over the years, changing some of the wording of its key phrases, adopting cookie sales as a key fund raiser and amending laws so that scouting can fit in among the many more choices that girls have to enrich their lives. Riendeau attributed the drop in participation since the 1990s to the many other activities competing for the attention of girls. “For girls, their world has changed. When Girl Scouts first started, women didn’t have the right to vote,” she said. “There’s a lot more opportunities for girls.” Lately, though, the organization has re-evaluated its rules and priorities and Riendeau said participation has ticked upward as a result. Now, girls can join a troop without the obligation to attend the regular meetings. They can join just to go to a camp or specific event. Despite these changes, Riendeau said the “philosophy, core values haven’t changed.” In 1912, as in 2012, Riendeau said the mission of the Girl Scouts is to develop “courage, confidence and character” in girls. They do this by providing experiences outside of the girl’s usual activities and by

teaching them the Girl Scouts’ brand of leadership, which Riendeau defined as “a team coming together for a common good, to make positive change.” The Girl Scouts, she said, is in the business of “empowering girls to see their self-worth. Girls can make a positive impact on the world.” Among the centennial celebration were Virginia Hutton, who joined the Girl Scouts in 1928 when she was 10-years-old and living in Springfield, Vt. She was joined by her great-granddaughter, Emma Noel, an 11-year-old living in North Berwick. Both agreed that their scouting experience was one they wouldn’t want to do without. “It was wonderful,” said Hutton, who was an active Girl Scout until 1935. About eight years later, Hutton was emboldened enough to enlist with the U.S. Marine Corps and served her country as a first lieutenant overseeing a post exchange in Arlington, Va. About scouting, she said, “It’s terrific, it really and truly is. You never forget it.” The experience made such an impression on her that her daughter, granddaughter and great-granddaughter all followed in her scouting example. Noel, enjoying a s’more with her great-grandmother, said it’s hard for her to say how scouting has changed her because she’s been a part of the organization for most of her young life. It’s taught her to be helpful to those that need help, to be a better student, to be a supportive friend and to be more active. For example, she first tried basketball through scouting, and now that’s one of her favorite sports. Noel will be among the many girls and women traveling to Savannah in June, the place where it all began, to take part in the 100th anniversary “camporee.” “I think being a girl scout has been an advantage in a lot of ways,” she said.

VIDEO from page 2 It’s not certain whether the dead were Taliban fighters, civilians or someone else. The incident will likely further hurt ties with Karzai’s government and complicate negotiations over a strategic partnership arrangement meant to govern the presence of U.S. troops and advisers in Afghanistan after most international combat troops withdraw by the end of 2014. Panetta said the incident could endanger U.S.Afghan-Taliban peace talks. “The danger is that this kind of video can be misused in many ways to undermine what we are trying to do in Afghanistan and the possibility of reconciliation,” Panetta said at Fort Bliss, Texas, adding it’s important for the U.S. to move quickly to “send a clear signal to the world that the U.S. will not tolerate this kind of behavior and that is not what the

The emergence of the video comes at a delicate time in relations among the United States, Afghanistan’s elected government and the Taliban insurgency fighting for both territorial control and cultural and religious preeminence in Afghanistan. The U.S. is trying to foster peace talks between the Karzai government and the Pakistan-based Taliban high command, and has made unprecedented offers to build trust with the insurgents, including the planned opening of a Taliban political office to oversee talks. Anti-American sentiment is already on the rise in Afghanistan, especially among Afghans who have not seen improvements to their daily lives despite billions of dollars in international aid. They also have deplored the accidental killing of civilians during NATO airstrikes and argue that foreign troops have culturally offended the Afghan people,


Hector’s marking 25th Anniversary with Jan. 18 benefit for LPD K-9 Fund By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — The Peterson’s — Carl and Carla — are celebrating their silver anniversary as owners of Hector’s Fine Food and Spirits by hosting a benefit for the K-9 Unit of the Laconia Police Department on Wednesday, January 18. “We want to celebrate all our wonderful years in the city by expressing our thanks and making a contribution to the community that has been so good to us,” Carla said. “It’s all for the bow-wow!” The Petersons will donate 20-percent of all the proceeds from lunch and dinner on the day to the fund to purchase the K-9 that will replace “Jago”, who is retiring after an exemplary career in law enforcement. Beginning at 7 p.m. Officer Kevin Shortt, the K-9 handler, will conduct the raffle drawings, which feature two grand prizes, the first two nights at the Lakeside Luxury Suites at Church Landing in Meredith, which will be finished in June, with a value of $600 and the second one night at an Inn at Mill Falls of your choice with a value of $250. Other prizes include a gift basket from the Cascade Spa at Church Landing, a snow board and cooler from Coors, two coolers from Budweiser, a backpack from Southern Wine and Spirits of New England and shirts from Paws Antiques. In addition, there are gift certificates from Napa Auto Parts, Trustworthy Hardware, All My Life Jewelers, Tranquillity Spa, Prescott’s Florist, Lisacha’s Beauty Lounge, Bootleggers, Quik Laundry and Cleaners, Laconia Electric, Irwin Marine and other local merchants. Raffle tickets went on sale at Hector’s yesterday. Police Chief Chris Adams said “we’re very thankful to the Petersons for their efforts on behalf of the department.” So far the community has raised nearly half the $10,000 needed to keep the K-9 Unit on the street. Adams said he expected to have Shortt and his partner in basic patrol school with the New Hampshire State Police, which includes obedience, officer protection, criminal apprehension, building search, evidence recovery, crowd control and tracking, by March. from preceding page mostly when it comes to activities involving women and the Quran, the Muslim holy book. Pentagon officials said the criminal investigation would likely look into whether the Marines violated laws of war, which include prohibitions against photographing or mishandling bodies and detainees. It also appeared to violate the U.S. Uniform Code of Military Justice, which governs conduct. Thus, some or all of the four Marines could face a military courtmartial or other disciplinary action. Karzai called the video “completely inhumane.” The Afghan Defense Ministry called it “shocking.” And the Taliban issued a statement accusing U.S. forces of committing numerous “indignities” against the Afghan people. U.S. officials said a military criminal investigation was being led by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, the law enforcement arm of the Navy. The Marines will do their own internal investigation. Panetta said the actions depicted in the brief video were inexcusable. “I have seen the footage, and I find the behavior depicted in it utterly deplorable. I condemn it in the strongest possible terms,” Panetta’s statement said. “Those found to have engaged in such conduct will be held accountable to the fullest extent.” The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, said he was deeply disturbed by the video and worried that it would erode the reputation of the entire military, not just the Marine Corps. A veterans group, the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, noted the video was the act of a small number of Marines and said it did not reflect the behavior of the millions who have served honorably.

Gilford joins what is expected to be long list of towns opposing giving Laconia greater say over sewer system BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

GILFORD — The Board of Selectmen this week authorized town administrator Scott Dunn to speak against House Bill 1130 that would weight voting on the advisory board of the Winnipesaukee River Basin (sewer) Program (WRBP) according to the population of the 10 member municipalities when it is heard by the House Public Works and Highways Committee on Thursday, Jan. 19 at 9:30 am. The WRBP is the sewer system serving Laconia, Belmont, Center Harbor, Franklin, Gilford, Meredith , Moultonborough, Northfield, Sanbornton, and Tilton, whose ratepayers fund its operating budget and capital improvements. Its nearly 60 miles of sewer mains, 12 major pump stations and wastewater treatment plant handle an average of 6.2-million gallons of sewage per day. The system is owned by the state and administered by the Department of Environmental Services (DES), but its operation, maintenance and improvement are funded by the ratepayers of the member municipalities. Sponsored by Rep. Frank Tilton (R-Laconia) the bill would entitle the member of the advisory board appointed by each municipality to cast one vote for every 500 residents of the municipality. Currently, each of the member municipalities has one vote. According to the 2010 census, the bill would grant Laconia 32, or 26-percent, of the 123 weighted votes. Franklin would have 17 votes, Belmont 15, Gilford 14, Meredith 12, Northfield 10, Moultonborough 8, Tilton 7, Sanbornton 6 and Center Harbor 2. Dunn said that he anticipated all nine towns belong to the WRBP would openly oppose the bill. MORTGAGE from page 2 omist, said that until hiring picks up and unemployment drops significantly, the impact of lower mortgage rates will remain muted. Previously occupied homes are selling just slightly ahead of 2010’s dismal pace. New-home sales in 2011 will likely be the worst year on records going back half a century. Builders hope that the low rates could boost sales next year. Low mortgage rates were cited as a key reason the National Association of Home Builders Request for Design/Build Proposals The Town of Sanbornton is accepting design/ build bids for replacement of Tilton Bridge Rd. bridge deck (DOT Bridge #131/098), existing abutments to be reused. Scope of work to include removal and disposal of old deck, installation of a precast concrete one lane bridge deck (Load Resistance Factor design Code HL93), gravel wearing surface, guard rails, as well as align and match roadway approaches. Footers are scoured and will need to be addressed by an approved method of repair. Drawings with a P.E. stamp will be required detailing superstructure and attachment to existing abutments. A review by NHDOT will be conducted for comment and to ensure compliance. Contractors must be state approved, provide proof of insurance and provide surety bond. Bids must be received at the Sanbornton Town Office by noon, Wednesday February 2, 2012. Proposals should be clearly marked “Tilton Bridge Proposal”. Please contact Bob Veloski at 603-286-8303 with any questions or to schedule a site visit. The Town of Sanbornton reserves the right to accept or reject any and all bids.

“The bill would pre-empt the efforts of the members of the WRBP to work together to address a number of issues, including governance, in a manner that only serves to benefit Laconia,” he said. “It is premature when the group is looking at the bigger picture and collecting more data to address the entire statute governing the WRBP.” Meanwhile, the Laconia City Council, with Councilor Brenda Baer abstaining, voted to support HB 1130 and instructed City Manager Scott Myers to formally communicate its position to Representative Gene Chandler (R-Bartlett), chairman of the House Public Works and Highways Committee. At the same time, the council expressed its trust that Tilton would act in the best interests of the city in responding to any amendments to the bill that might be offered. In September, the advisory board of WRBP asked Tilton to withdraw the bill, which it feared would disrupt several initiatives to restructure the administration and operation of the WRBP. The board explained that together with DES the WRBP has embarked on a flow metering program, which would provide data on the usage of each municipality to support a revision of the formula for allocating costs among them. The board also noted that the member municipalities are negotiating a memorandum of understanding with DES to govern the budgeting of the program, introduce a capital improvements program, adjust the formula for allocating costs and reconsider the governance of the WRBP. Tilton, former head of the Public Works Department in Laconia, declined to drop the bill, which he recently called “my favorite.” survey of builder sentiment rose in December to its highest level in more than a year. But so far, they have had little impact on the depressed housing market. To calculate the average rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country Monday through Wednesday of each week. The average rates don’t include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for the 30-year loan fell to 0.7 from 0.8; the average on the 15-year fixed mortgage was unchanged at 0.8. For the five-year adjustable loan, the average rate declined to 2.82 percent from 2.86 percent. The average on the one-year adjustable loan fell to 2.76 percent from 2.80 percent. The average fee on the five-year adjustable loan rose was unchanged at 0.7; the average on the oneyear adjustable-rate loan was unchanged at 0.6.

ALTON from page one federal court Website are heavily redacted and supporting documents sealed for electronic accessing by an order of United States magistrate Judge Ladya McCafferty. The names of the two plaintiffs are not revealed. This story is based on the electronically available redacted complaint. The elder of the two men was ultimately convicted of and sentenced to serve up to 40 years in state prison for three counts of sexual misconduct with a child. According to the suit, the elder plaintiff was convicted on Feb. 25, 2009 of three counts of sexual misconduct against one child. In December of 2009, Judge Larry Smukler granted the man a new trial and all charges against him were dropped altogether on Oct. 25, 2010. A spokesman for the N.H. Department of Corrections said he was incarcerated from April 9, 2008 until Feb. 12, 2010. The younger man pleaded guilty on June 9, 2007 of two counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault against his stepdaughter. Judge James O’Neill vacated both his sentences on July 1, 2010. Prison records indicate he was incarcerated in the N.H. State Prison from June 9, 2008 until July 2, 2010 when he was transferred to Belknap County. He was released on July 12, 2010. The suit claims the exculpatory evidence was uncovered by Belknap County Attorney Office prosecutors in February of 2009 while they were preparing their second case against the elder man for allegedly assaulting a second child.

Count 16 of the suit says the prosecution found “exculpatory evidence, consisting of pages A1-199 inclusive and B1-B27, which had not previously been disclosed to either the plaintiff or his counsel, even though the documents had been in the possession of the Alton Police Department for approximately six, or more years.” The civil suit claims the withheld information included paperwork by Corriea in September of 2002 stating the alleged second victim “came to his office to complain about (a Rochester, NY man ) by stating (the man) had been angry at (initials) and had decided to make a false report of sexual assault against (initials) stepfather, with the sole purpose of making (initials) life miserable.” Alleged exculpatory materials also included statements made to Iwans that one victim was allegedly assaulted by a different man with the same first name and a similar statement made in 2005 to Nichols, and an undated report of a similar nature made by Heath-Roberts. The civil rights suit has four components all citing the Civil Rights Act of 1871, last amended in 1983 and the rights secured by the Fourth and Fourteenth Amendments of the United States Constitution and well as similar rights established under the New Hampshire Constitution. There are four separate causes of action: a civil rights violation filed for the father, a civil rights violation filed for the son, a civil rights violation against the defendant the (town) of Alton and supplemental claims against all of the defendants individually including a claim of malicious prosecution.

Stonyfield CEO resigns to focus of food policy CONCORD (AP) — Saying he wants to devote more time to changing national food policies to help consumers, Gary Hirshberg is stepping down as the CEO of New Hampshire’s Stonyfield Farm and handing over responsibilities of the organic yogurt company to the former CEO of Ben & Jerry’s. Hirshberg, of Stonyfield, will remain as chairman of the Londonderry company, overseeing its European divisions and other initiatives. The 57-year-old Hirshberg said Thursday the company is in great shape and the change leaves him time to focus on U.S. food and agriculture policy. A Democratic activist and fundraiser, he also wants to spend time on efforts to re-elect President Barack Obama and support a New Hampshire gubernatorial candidate for the 2012 election. Hirshberg said he is not running for governor. Walt Freese will become Stonyfield CEO on Jan. 23. He was CEO of Ben & Jerry’s in Burlington, Vt., from 2004-2010. Hirshberg says Freese will be an amazing successor. “Finding somebody who can run not a seven-cow operation as we were once, but a $400 million company who understands that they’re not going to have the benefits of producing cheap food and spending a ton of money on advertising is not an easy person to find. In Walt Freese, I just couldn’t be more thrilled, I think he’s the right guy,” Hirshberg said. He said he first approached Freese — his only candidate — about the job in 2010, after Freese had left Ben & Jerry’s and was taking some time off. Freese, also 57, was chief marketing officer for Ben & Jerry’s before he became CEO. Before that, he served as president of Celestial Seasonings in Boulder, Colo., and held senior management roles with Kraft/General Foods and Nestle. “This is what I want my life to be about ... working for businesses that both can be strong and vibrant financial enterprises and contribute in a meaningful way to the world. This just seems to me to be the perfect fit,” Freese said. Stonyfield Farm is owned by French food company Danone, one of the world’s biggest yogurt makers. Danone initially invested in the company in 2001. It sells Stonyfield, Oikos and YoKids yogurts, among others. Hirshberg said he wants to concentrate on various agricultural policies, especially food labeling. He helped form a broad coalition of farmers, businesses, unions, health groups and others called “Just Label It,” calling for mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods, like many other countries do. “We as consumers really do have the right to know what’s in our food,” Hirshberg said.

“ I was… coerced… by my Mother to take this course, but it has really helped my wife and I get on the same page as a couple.”

Benches to be added along handicap trail in Belmont Town Forest as Eagle Scout project BY GAIL OBER

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

BELMONT — In order for a Boy Scout to earn Eagle Scout rank, he has to do a community project and once again the town’s conservation land will be the beneficiary. Future Eagle Scout Kurt Oberhausen presented the Conservation Commission last week with three choices for his project and with the commissioners decided he should build benches for resting along the handicap trail in the Belmont Town Forest. “The trail wraps along a large pond,” penned Oberhausen in his written submission. “No benches or sitting areas are located around the trail.” To earn an Eagle Scout rank, said Conservation Commission Chair Ken Knowlton, whose organization has benefited throughout the years from the efforts of the Boy Scouts, said each young man must submit three possible proposals and complete one Two years ago, aspiring Eagle Scout Alvin Nix build birdhouses and duck blinds for the Sanborn Farm property. Unfortunately, Knowlton said, sometime over the past summer, the blinds and birdhouses were all taken down and thrown into the woods. Knowlton reported it to local police and wrote a letter to local newpapers expressing his outrage, but said despite his sadness at the apparent willful destruction, he and the Boy Scouts will continue to improve conservation and town forest lands in Belmont and he and

the rest of the commissioners welcomed Oberhausen’s project suggestions with open arms. He said Oberhausen initially suggested either a picnic tables or bench along the trail would be a good project Conservation Commission members felt benches would be better because picnic tables can generate trash and littering. Oberhausen would also like to include signs identifying different plants and trees along the handicap trail, telling Commissioners it would be a great way for people to learn what plant and tress species are native to the Belmont area. One of Oberhausen’s other suggestions was building kiosks at the beginning of trails in “Pop’s Woods” with maps and trail information. His third suggestion was a bridge along the “Kurtis Bartlett Trail” but Conservation Commission members said it would likely be too involved because it may involve excavation and the ditch he suggested bridging is deep and rocky. Oberhausen told the commissioners that he liked the idea of the benches best because people who walk along the handicapped trail should have a place where they can rest. Commissioners also liked the idea of the tree and plant identification signs “Thank you very much and thank the rest of the Boy Scouts for us,” said Knowlton. “We enjoy giving back to the community,” replied Oberhausen.

Man who damaged police department sign in 2010 now charged with threatening police officer

LACONIA — The man who caused $2,000 in damage to the Police Department sign in November 2010 allegedly threatened to rip out the throat of a local police officer who was arresting him for criminal mischief. Affidavits filed in 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division allege Laconia Police were arresting Daniel P. Levesque of 42 Strafford St. on an outstanding warrant when he threatened one of the arresting officers. “You ask too many (expletive) questions,” Levesque alleged said repeatedly to Officer Kevin Shortt, who was helping the arresting officer collect Levesque’s belongings. Police said Shortt was asking Levesque to describe a “Sawzall-type” blade he was afraid was going to be left behind when Levesque became angry and told Shortt he was going to use the blade to “rip out (his) (expletive) neck.” In his affidavit, Short also said he believed Levesque had some mental instabilities that make him a serious threat to the lives and safety of the public. It was in November 2010 that Levesque took what was described as a mace-type ball on a stick fastened

to strap that connected both his hands and used the make-shift weapon to repeatedly smash the sign in front of the Police Department. During that encounter, he also threatened a police sergeant with the same weapon by swinging it at him. While the threatened sergeant kept him occupied, Levesque was taken down from behind by a second officer but because he had the mace-ball fastened to both his hands, police were unable to handcuff him until they got him inside the building when a third officer cut the straps from Levesque’s wrists, removed the weapon, so he could be restrained. One officer was cut during the altercation. When Levesque appeared on Wednesday in Circuit Court, Judge James Carroll ordered some people from Genesis Behavioral Health to be with him and further ordered him held on $2,000 cash bail that could be converted to personal recognizance if he is admitted to a secure mental health facility. He is also facing one charge of vandalism for punching a thermometer and breaking it during a visit to a Howard Street acquaintance in December. — Gail Ober

Composting workshop scheduled for Wednesday at Laconia City Hall

LACONIA — The Laconia Conservation Commission is inviting city residents to attend a question and answer session on “Backyard Composting Made Easy’’ led by Kelly McAdam, agricultural resources educator with the Belknap County Cooperative Extension Service, on Wednesday, January 18, at 6:30 p.m. at Laconia City Hall. City residents are being encouraged to reduce the weight of waste items

brought to the city transfer station as a way of reducing costs for the city. McAdam says that a backyard compost station is the ultimate way to reduce, reuse and recycle and that is produces a useful product of pure organix fertilizer which is useful during the growing season. For more information contact Scott McPhie, conservation planning technician, at City Hall 527-1264 or by e-mail mcphies@city.laconia.nh.us.

Habitat for Humanity looking for general contractor to coordinate home building project in Franklin FRANKKLIN — Lakes Region Habitat for Humanity is looking for a general contractor to help it build its 32nd house, a small ranch house of approximately 1,300 square feet with an attached one car carport or garage which would be built in this city starting in April or May. Marilyn Deschenes, president, said that the house will be built from the ground up and will be the first handicapped accessible house built by the organization. She said that previously the Habitat board of directors had a qualified general contractor as a member but doesn’t at present. “We have a lot of great expertise and experience within our board of directors, but in this particular area, we need some help. If anyone knows someone who is interested in helping us on a volunteer basis, please have them give me a call”, says Deschenes, adding, “We’re always on the lookout for materials donations as well.” She said a site and civil work contractor are needed to estimate and track

expenses, plan work schedules and coordinate with subcontractors, supervise lot preparation including a suitable driveway, grading and foundation work and supervise necessary utilities work for the house (water, sewer, gas, electric). A construction contractor is needed to estimate and track expenses, plan work schedules and coordinate with subcontractors, supervise the build of the house from the foundation up and to supervise all laborers to ensure proper framing, electrical, plumbing, mechanical, insulation and finish work inside and out. She said that ideally, Lakes Region Habitat would like the new house to be a “Blitz Build”, where contractors and tradesmen are able to get the house built and tied in with all utilities and mechanicals installed in a few weeks time. Then non-skilled volunteers could assist with the finish work inside and out. For more information on the current project, or to get involved, go to www. lrhabitat.org or call 279-4820.

Debbie Bolduc talks about Facebook at Guys’ Night Out meeting on Thursday

GILFORD — Debbie Bolduc, owner of BizBuzz Marketing Partners, will help the men at Guys’ Night Out to understand the benefits of using Facebook On Thursday, January 19. Guys’ Night Out programs begin at 6 p.m. with a social hour followed by a dinner provided by Ellie Murphy at 7 p.m. Right after dinner Ms. Bolduc will speak about the basics of Facebook and answer any questions. Reservations are needed by Jan 16 and can be made by calling the church office at 524-6057. Cost of the event is $10 and is open to all men from the Lakes Region. Bolduc says that many who are just basic users of computers may not appreciate its potential for both business and personal use. This night will be sort of a “Facebook for Dummies”

discussion with no prior knowledge required. The 50+ age group is the fastest growing population on Facebook, which is now the largest website in the world. Many of this generation find it a great way to share and view photos of grandchildren and stay in touch with distant family members. Others have discovered or reconnected with relatives and old classmates through the popular site. Those involved with community organizations will learn how easy it is to promote events and causes. As with anything, there are precautions to take, and knowing the ins and outs of the security and privacy settings is a key component in how much people choose to share and with whom to share it.

Registration underway for spring season of Lakes Region Flag Football MEREDITH — Registration is now open for the spring season of the Lakes Region Flag Football League. The LRFFL is based in Meredith with games and practices are played on the Inter-Lakes High School turf field. The LRFFL is open to all boys and girls in the Lakes Region area between the ages of 5-15, with four 4 divisions as follows: ages 5-6; ages 6-8; ages 9-11; ages 12-15. All divisions are co-ed. Flag football is played 5-on-5 and requires no helmets, and no equipment is needed as this is a non-contact sport. Offensive players are considered “tackled” when a defender pulls the flag off of the ball carriers belt. The season will run from mid-April

to early-June. Games are scheduled to be played on Saturday afternoons, with a Wednesday night practice of 1 hour per week. The season will culminate in Playoff Games and Super Bowl Championship games in all age divisions (except 5-6) in June. Early registration fee is $45 before February 1. This fee is all-inclusive, and each player will receive an NFL Flag reversible team jersey and a set of NFL flags to keep. (There is a $5 discount for multiple player registrations). Registration is available online. Sign-up today at: http://www.nflflag. com/website/home/lrffl Those with questions can contact the league by e-mail at lrffl@metrocast.net.

by Darby Conley

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis that you’ll come out very much ahead if you seize this chance. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Gentle movement will bring harmony to your world. Walking is a kind of active meditation. Also, the sensory input of the changing scenery is like a wonderful workout for your brain. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Kindness is your calling card. You’ll embody the qualities of compassion, patience and love just when someone in your midst most needs this influence. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll have a competitive edge because you don’t mind seeing an endeavor for the competition it really is. Others might say it’s “just for fun,” but part of the fun is that only one team can win. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Mix with those who have experience in the realm in which you want to succeed. Learn from someone who has “been there and done that.” You’ll gain insights and create the same success for yourself. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll be surprised by the shards of past pain that reemerge long after you thought you were past it. Be patient. Moving on is a process. You’re developing perfectly. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 13). You’ll be more perceptive and attuned to the world around you. In the next 10 weeks, you’ll seize an opportunity to make money. You’ll accept a proposition in March. Travel and adventure are connected to what’s going on with your family in April. You’ll be widening your skill base and experience in July. Aquarius and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 10, 2, 13 and 28.

TUNDRA

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Bring your emotions to everything you do. You could miss something by living too much in your head or approaching every situation from an intellectual standpoint. Engage your body and feelings. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Something that only takes a moment or two -- for instance, keeping your keys in the same place consistently or writing down all appointments -- will yield a huge return on your investment of attention. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). An old saying goes “loose lips sink ships,” and that’s not all they sink. Relationships, opportunities and reputations also hang in the balance now. By remembering past mistakes, you’ll be careful of what you reveal and to whom. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You haven’t had the time to read as much as you would like. An obligation will drop from your schedule, and the ideal way to spend this newfound time will be with your nose in a book. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). One person sees a big dog and thinks: threat. Another person sees the same dog and thinks: friend. Either one could be correct. Realizing that others don’t perceive things as you do gives you an advantage today. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There are those who will take up your time with pointless chatter. If it’s pleasant, you won’t mind. But if it’s both pointless and boring, you’ll take precautions not to be caught in the same situation again. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There will be an opportunity to make money while learning. You probably won’t be making much, but the education is so valuable

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, January 13, 2012— Page 17

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, Jan. 13, the 13th day of 2012. There are 353 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 13, 1982, an Air Florida 737 crashed into Washington, D.C.’s 14th Street Bridge and fell into the Potomac River after taking off during a snowstorm, killing a total of 78 people; four passengers and a flight attendant survived. (Half an hour after the Air Florida crash, a Washington Metro train derailed during rush hour, killing three passengers.) On this date: In 1733, James Oglethorpe and 120 English colonists arrived at Charleston, S.C., while en route to settle in present-day Georgia. In 1794, President George Washington approved a measure adding two stars and two stripes to the American flag, following the admission of Vermont and Kentucky to the Union. (The number of stripes was later reduced to the original 13.) In 1864, composer Stephen Foster died impoverished in a New York hospital at age 37. (In his pocket: a note which read, “Dear friends and gentle hearts.”) In 1945, during World War II, Soviet forces began a huge, successful offensive against the Germans in Eastern Europe. In 1962, comedian Ernie Kovacs died in a car crash in west Los Angeles 10 days before his 43rd birthday. In 1966, Robert C. Weaver was named Secretary of Housing and Urban Development by President Lyndon B. Johnson; Weaver became the first black Cabinet member. In 1978, former Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey died in Waverly, Minn., at age 66. In 1987, West German police arrested Mohammed Ali Hamadi, a suspect in the 1985 hijacking of a TWA jetliner. (Although convicted and sentenced to life, Hamadi was paroled by Germany in Dec. 2005; he is on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list.) In 1990, L. Douglas Wilder of Virginia became the nation’s first elected black governor as he took the oath of office in Richmond. In 1992, Japan apologized for forcing tens of thousands of Korean women to serve as sex slaves for its soldiers during World War II, citing newly uncovered documents that showed the Japanese army had had a role in abducting the so-called “comfort women.” One year ago: Vice President Joe Biden became the first top U.S. official to visit Iraq since the country approved a new Cabinet; Biden emphasized to Iraqi leaders that the U.S. wanted nothing more than for Iraq to be free and democratic. Today’s Birthdays: Actress Frances Sternhagen is 82. TV personality Nick Clooney is 78. Comedian Rip Taylor is 78. Actor Billy Gray is 74. Actor Richard Moll is 69. Rock musician Trevor Rabin is 58. Rock musician James Lomenzo is 53. Actor Kevin Anderson is 52. Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus is 51. Rock singer Graham “Suggs” McPherson is 51. Country singer Trace Adkins is 50. Actress Penelope Ann Miller is 48. Actor Patrick Dempsey is 46. Actress Traci Bingham is 44. Actor Keith Coogan is 42. Actress Nicole Eggert is 40. Actor Orlando Bloom is 35. Actor Julian Morris is 29.

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Dear Annie: I recently moved into an apartment with three other guys. We get along well and have fun together. One of my roommates is a serious player and has no qualms about dating six women at the same time. With each one, he implies that the relationship is exclusive. He told me he does this because he got burned once. I told him that’s a risk in any relationship and that he should stop being part of the problem. Now he brings his various girlfriends to the apartment. They think he’s a great guy who seems so genuine. I have to interact with them and feel horrible lying, smiling and pretending I don’t know what’s really going on. What should I do? If I expose him, it will sour our relationship. At the same time, I can’t keep pretending that his womanizing is OK. Do I really have to move again? -- New Yorker Dear New Yorker: You cannot become involved in every roommate’s issues, nor can you be every woman’s protector, although bless you for trying. These women are responsible for their own character judgments, good or bad. You have told The Snake how you feel about his behavior, and we think you should do so again, more forcefully, pointing out that he has become the type of person he detests. And when he brings a girlfriend over, we recommend you vacate the premises or retreat to your bedroom. You should not be forced to put on a phony face for his benefit. Dear Annie: My son recently married his longtime girlfriend. My wife and I paid for the rehearsal dinner and the honeymoon, and the bridal couple paid for the rest. The reception was small, and the ceremony even smaller. They also wanted no children younger than high-school age. We would have liked to expand the guest list, but it wasn’t our money, and we didn’t push. My sisters felt that their young children should have been

invited, and one boycotted the wedding in protest. Then, two months later, our cousin married, opting for a destination wedding. Neither my sisters nor I could make it. Afterward, the couple held a local reception and specifically said “no children.” The same sister who boycotted my son’s wedding was perfectly OK attending this childfree reception. My son is moving out of state next year, and my wife and I are retiring to Florida. I would just as soon write off that branch of the family, but my wife wants to make a big deal out of this snub. Your suggestions? -- Put Out in Peoria Dear Put Out: The two weddings are not exactly comparable in that your son is a closer relation to your sister’s young children than your cousin’s child is, and she was not as offended by their exclusion. However, boycotting your son’s wedding was petty and selfish. You need not make a big deal out of this or write them off. Moving away will take care of any regular contact while leaving open the possibility of reconciliation down the road. Dear Annie: “Worried Driver in Lafayette, Ind.” asked for a universal sign to get people to stop talking on their cellphones while driving. Despite all the hysteria, the fact is that in the 15 years that cellphones have become widespread, traffic accidents and fatalities have decreased 25 percent, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. -- Hawaii Dear Hawaii: The problem with quoting statistics is that you have to put them in context. Overall traffic fatalities did dip, but “distracted driving” accidents (e.g., eating, drinking, adjusting the radio and cellphone use) increased by up to 16 percent. Also, even though hand-held phone use decreased by 5 percent and is against the law in more states, 18 percent of distracted-driving fatalities involved cellphone use.

Church Landing & Conneston Construction take made in America challenge MEREDITH — The Inns & Spa at Mill Falls, in conjunction with Conneston Construction, Inc., of Gilford, have taken on the Made in America Challenge with the Church Landing Phase II expansion project. The Made in America Challenge, an initiative of ABC-TV’s World News Tonight with Diane Sawyer, is based on the simple concept of buying products that are made in America and help put Americans back to work. “ABC World News Tonight and Diane Sawyer have been touting the virtues of this idea on the show for some time and it sparked our interest here in Meredith as we are in the construction phase of the Church Landing expansion,” said Rusty McLear, president of The Inns & Spa at Mill Falls. “We thought ‘wouldn’t it be great to take this challenge, make this construction project Made in America, and help create jobs for Americans?’ ‘’ CCI began construction last fall on the Church Landing expansion, which features two new buildings with a total of 17,000 square feet of guest rooms, lounges and an indoor-outdoor pool. “In a construction meeting in October, we went around the room and asked ourselves ‘would it really be that hard to make sure as much, if not all, of the project was in fact manufactured in this country?’,” said Ross Currier, Vice President of CCI. “We wondered that maybe a lot of what we’re already buying meets the definition of being Made in America. So that’s just what we did.” According to Currier, all subcontractors were tasked with analyzing every single material to be

used in the construction project to determine if everything being used is Made in America. “If we determined it wasn’t Made in America, we asked ourselves, can we switch to a product that is domestically made? Is there an option to buy it in the US? If there is, will we have to pay more?,” said Currier. “These were the questions we asked ourselves, and what we discovered is that this expansion project could be 95% Made in America.” McLear hopes this effort will help to serve as a blueprint for others looking to take Phase II of Church Landing at the Inns & Spa at Mill Falls, looking down the waterfront at the lodges from Church Landing. (Courtesy photo) the Made in America Challenge and help put elevator that we plan to install. That particular type of Americans back to work. elevator is just not made in the U.S., but we are working “While it has taken some effort, this initiative has been with a manufacturer in Canada to supply that. Additionwell worth the time spent,” said McLear. “We are proud to ally, a small amount of the electrical panels, breakers and say this project is 95% American made. Everything from other switching gear, as well some of the screws, nuts and the nails, the steel, the staples, the lumber and the bathbolts are made outside the U.S.” tubs are domestically made. The remaining 5% that we weren’t able to buy American included the limited access see next page

Youth boat building scholarship program sets sail with $450 donation from MVSB WOLFEBORO — Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB) recently donated $450 to fund a scholarship for the New Hampshire Boat Museum’s 2011 Youth Boat Building Program. Local student, Kendra Ladd was selected by the Museum as the recipient. Entering the 7th grade at Kingswood Regional Middle School, Kendra is an avid sportsperson and was excited to have the opportunity to craft her own boat. “I learned how to use new tools and gained many new friendships,” said Kendra. “Now that I have built my own boat, I am planning to go fishing and for joy rides and hang out with my friends doing everything I can possibly do with my boat.” The New Hampshire Boat Museum was founded in 1992 by a group of dedicated antique and classic boating enthusiasts. According to Hank Why, chairman of the board of Trustees for the Museum, “the common goal was to preserve the boating heritage of the New Hampshire Lakes. Thanks to the generous support of donors like MVSB, we are able to continue the tradition of boat building with our programs for adults, families and area youth like Kendra, passing down the great joys many of us have experienced recreating out on New Hampshire’s many beautiful lakes. During the course, students are taught the safe use of hand tools and small power tools and learn how to assemble their own boats from a kit.”

12 year-old Kendra Ladd is shown receiving her scholarship award from Nancy Stock, MVSB Wolfeboro branch supervisor, and Hank Why, chairman of the board of trustees, New Hampshire Boat Museum. (Courtesy photo)

GILFORD — The Gilford Parks and Recreation Department is sponsoring a six-week art class for children ages three and up on Tuesday mornings from 10–11:15 a.m. The program will run for from January 19 through February 23 and will be held in Conference Room A in the Gilford Community Church.

Cost is $60 for the session, which includes all necessary materials. For more information, call the Parks and Recreation Department at 527-4722. from preceding page Currier added that the team was able to realize that in some instances products were the same price, yet provided better quality “By creating awareness of this effort, we have been able to create a Made in America development, and have not added substantially to the total budget, just $4,000 or so to overall cost,” added McLear. “Even though certain goods are more expensive, in total, the cost of the project is nearly identical – an effort well worth the time, awareness, and minimal increased expense, especially if we can contribute to putting Americans to work.” McLear noted that while several New Hampshire projects receiving federal stimulus funds are required to buy American made products, this construction project is the only privately funded project in New Hampshire to be Made in America. According to findings on ABC-TV World News, if every builder bought just 5 percent more American materials it could create 220,000 jobs.
