Dewhirst Funeral Home building sold Despite sign, Wilkinson-Beane has no plans to expand to upper Union Ave. location By Gail OBer


LACONIA – The Dewhirst Funeral Home has sold its Lakeport building to a local man for $128,500. According to Funeral Director Glenn Dewhirst, all of his permanent records are now being kept at Mayhew Funeral Home and Crematorium in Meredith and anyone with prepaid arrangements has already been notified. Dewhirst said he sold the building partly because it needed a lot of work — especially a new roof — and that it was very expensive to heat and maintain. “The taxes were outrageous,” Dewhirst said, adding the city was “no help at all” when it came to his tax liability. According to Laconia’s online assessing data base, the land and building at 1061 Union Avenue is assessed at $490,600 — nearly four times the selling price. He also said the location was difficult because it is nearly impossible to make a left-hand turn onto Union Avenue out of his parking lot. When asked if some kind of merger or business arrangement has been made with Mayhew, he said the had gotten that far yet. He said letters to all of the families whose permanent records were in his hands have been sent informing them their records are at Mayhew. When asked why a sign for the Wilkinson-BeaneSimoneau-Pauquette Funeral Home and Crematory from preceding page and drove ahead alone. With the hostage drama entering its second day Thursday, Algerian security forces moved in, first with helicopter fire and then special forces, according to diplomats, a website close to the militants, and an Algerian security official. The government said it was forced to intervene because the militants were being stubborn and wanted to flee with the hostages. The militants — led by a Mali-based al-Qaida offshoot known as the Masked Brigade — suffered losses in Thursday’s military assault, but succeeded in garnering a global audience. Even violence-scarred Algerians were stunned by the brazen hostage-taking Wednesday, the biggest in northern Africa in years and the first to include Americans as targets. Mass fighting in the 1990s

was posted on the outside of the building along with a for sale sign, Dewhirst declined comment. Wilkinson-Beane President Russell Beane said he is friends with Donald Houle, the man who bought the building, and Houle allowed him to put his sign up to let people in Laconia know there was a local option. Beane said he has no plans to purchase the building or relocate any part of his operation there. had largely spared the lucrative oil and gas industry that gives Algeria its economic independence and regional weight. The hostage-taking raised questions about security for sites run by multinationals that are dotted across Africa’s largest country. It also raised the prospect of similar attacks on other countries allied against the extremist warlords and drug traffickers who rule a vast patch of desert across several countries in northwest Africa. Even the heavy-handed Algerian response may not deter groups looking for martyrdom and attention. Casualty figures in the Algerian standoff varied widely. The remote location is extremely hard to reach and was surrounded by Algerian security forces — who, like the militants, are inclined to advertise their successes and minimize their failures.
