Perhaps part of a dying breed, Robert Sawyer has owned both building & business for 33 years BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Unlike his grandfather and father, both watchmakers, Robert Sawyer readily admits he cannot fix a timepiece, but for the past 33 years he has run Sawyer’s Jewelry like clockwork, sustaining one of the longest running family businesses to operate from its own down-

town property. Sawyers’s father Jack learned watchmaking apprenticed to his father Alexander, who ranked among the finest craftsmen at the Boston Jewelers Building. Sawyer recalled that when his father grew restless confined to a small workshop in a big city, his brother, a traveling salesman, told him that Myer Kassner was seeking

a buyer for his jewelry store in Laconia. “In 1945 my father took the train to Laconia and bought the business at 628 Main Street,” he said. “He was an entrepreneur,” he continued, describing his father as equally willing to take risks and work hard. Sawyer said that his father kept shop during the day, returning the profits to the business,

and repaired watches in the evening to support his family while becoming one of the first gemologists in New Hampshire certified by the American Gem Society. By 1952, the business had outgrown its space and moved to new quarters twice the size across the street at 633 Main Street. Sawyer, who as a schoolsee SAWYER page 5

City takes delivery on new ATV, courtesy of Bike Week profits BY ADAM DRAPCHO THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Several years ago, beginning with the fiscal year ending in 2007, City Council decided to establish a special account for Motorcycle Week. The reason was to provide a clear accounting of the 9-day annual event, a way to prove whether or not the fees collected from vendors were

Hillary Clinton receiving blood thinners to dissolve clot

WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton continues to recover in a New York hospital where she’s being treated for a blood clot in her head. Her doctors say blood thinners are being used to dissolve the clot and they are confident she will make a full recovery. Clinton didn’t suffer a stroke or neurological damage from the clot that formed after she suffered a concussion during a fainting spell at her home in early December, doctors said in a statement Monday. Clinton, 65, was admitted to New YorkPresbyterian Hospital on Sunday when the clot turned up on a follow-up exam on the concussion, Clinton spokesman Phillipe Reines said. The clot is located in the vein in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear. She will be released once the medication dose for the blood thinners has been estabsee CLOT page 10

New Year’s night House vote seals ‘cliff’ deal WASHINGTON (AP) — Past its own New Year’s deadline, a weary Congress sent President Barack Obama legislation to avoid a national “fiscal cliff” of middle class tax increases and spending cuts late Tuesday night in the culmination of a struggle that strained America’s divided government to the limit. The bill’s passage on a bipartisan 257167 vote in the House sealed a hard-won political triumph for the president less than two months after he secured re-election while calling for higher taxes on the wealthy. Moments later, Obama strode into the White House briefing room and declared, “Thanks to the votes of Republicans and Democrats in Congress I will sign a law

that raises taxes on the wealthiest 2 percent of Americans while preventing tax hikes that could have sent the economy back into recession.” He spoke with Vice President Joe Biden at his side, a recognition of the former senator’s role as the lead Democratic negotiator in final compromise talks with Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. In addition to neutralizing middle class tax increases and spending cuts taking effect with the new year, the legislation will raise tax rates on incomes over $400,000 for individuals and $450,000 for couples. That was higher than the thresholds of $200,000 and $250,000 that Obama campaigned for. But remarkably,

in a party that swore off tax increases two decades ago, dozens of Republicans supported the bill at both ends of the Capitol. The Senate approved the measure on a vote of 89-8 less than 24 hours earlier, and in the interim, rebellious House conservatives demanded a vote to add significant spending cuts to the measure. But in the end they retreated. The measure split the upper ranks of the Republican leadership in the House. Speaker John Boehner of Ohio voted in favor, while Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia and California Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the party’s whip, opposed the bill. Supporters of the bill in both parties expressed regret that it was narrowly see FISCAL CLIFF page 23

NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) — Since escaping a gunman’s rampage at their elementary school, the 8-year-old Connors triplets have suffered nightmares, jumped at noises and clung to their parents a little more than usual. Now parents like David Connors are bracing to send their children back to school, nearly three weeks after the shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown. It won’t be easy — for the parents or the children, who heard the gunshots that killed 20 of their classmates and six educators. “I’m nervous about it,” Connors said. “It’s unchartered waters for us. I know it’s

going to be difficult.” Classes are starting Thursday at a repurposed school in the neighboring town of Monroe, where the students’ desks have been taken along with backpacks and other belongings that were left behind in the chaos following the shooting on Dec. 14. Families have been coming in to see the new school, and an open house is scheduled for Wednesday. An army of workers has been getting the school ready, painting, moving furniture and even raising the floors in the bathrooms of the former middle school so the smaller elementary school students can reach the toilets.

Connors, a 40-year-old engineer, felt reassured after recently visiting the new setup at the former Chalk Hill school in Monroe. He said his children were excited to see their backpacks and coats, and that the family was greeted by a police officer at the door and grief counselors in the hallways. Teachers will try to make it as normal a school day as possible for the children, schools Superintendent Janet Robinson said. “We want to get back to teaching and learning,” she said. “We will obviously take time out from the academics for any conversations that need to take place, and there will be a lot of support there.

The Depardieu Revolution When Socialist President Francois Hollande took office, he swiftly made good on his pledge to raise the top tax rate on Frenchmen who earn a million euros a year — to 75 percent. The regime would now confiscate three of four dollars that the most successful Frenchmen earned. Paris also imposes a wealth tax on assets worth more than $1.7 million. This broke it for Gerard Depardieu, the famed actor and bon vivant who has performed in scores of films in such roles as Jean Valjean in “Les Miserables” and Cyrano de Bergerac. Depardieu put his Paris mansion up for sale, crossed the border into the Belgian village of Nechin, gave up his French passport and is renouncing his French citizenship. A tiny community of French already reside in Nechin, a kilometer beyond the reach of Hollande’s tax police. Depardieu says that this past year 85 percent of all he earned went for taxes. Over a 45-year career, he contends, almost $200 million in income has been taxed away by the French government. “I don’t like the rich,” Hollande has said. The sentiment is reciprocated. One French radio station claims that 5,000 French citizens have fled since he took office. Hollande’s regime, writes Edward Cody of The Washington Post, has all but declared Depardieu a traitor. Labor Minister Michel Sapin calls him an example of “personal degradation.” Culture Minister Aurelie Filippetti charges him with “deserting the battlefield in a war against the economic crisis.” “When someone loves France, he should serve,” says Hollande, calling Depardieu “pathetic” and “unpatriotic.” Which raises a question for Americans. For our revolution was born of a tax rebellion against the Stamp Act, the Townshend duties and the tea tax that led to the Boston Tea Party. Purpose of these taxes: Have the colonies pay a fair share of the cost of the French and Indian War, in which British soldiers had driven the enemies of the colonies out of the Ohio Valley. But when farmers in Pennsylvania rebelled against a whiskey tax to defray the cost of our Revolutionary War, President Washington marched out with 13,000 militia to crush that tax rebellion. While the socialist left has come down hardest on Depardieu, he is well within a tradition of the cultural left. As The Associated Press’ Thomas Addison reports, when the British top tax rate was 95 percent in the 1960s, the Beatles’ George Harrison wrote “Taxman” with the lyrics, “There’s one for you, 19 for me.” In 2005, Beatles’ drummer Ringo Starr moved to Monaco, where the income tax rate is zero. Sean Connery, the first “James Bond,” departed Britain in the

1960s for Spain and the Bahamas, writes Addison, “another spot with zero income tax.” In the 1970s, his successor as 007, Roger Moore, also chose tax exile in Monaco. In those years of confiscatory tax rates in England, the Rolling Stones relocated to Southern France. What does this teach us? That socialism, the forced redistribution of income and wealth from those who produce it to those who do not, eventually forces a man to choose between himself and his family — and his government. Socialism creates and exacerbates a conflict in loyalties. A regime that takes three of every four dollars a man earns is an enemy of what that man works to accomplish for himself and his family. Mitt Romney was castigated for keeping bank accounts in the Caymans, Bermuda and Switzerland. Yet countless U.S. companies leave profits abroad to evade U.S. taxes. Californians flee to Nevada, Arizona, Idaho and Colorado to escape Golden State taxes. Are they disloyal to their home state, or are they doing what is right by their families, their first responsibility? With federal income taxes on America’s most successful rising today to almost 40 percent, New York City residents will also pay a top rate of 12 percent to the state and city plus a 9 percent sales tax on their purchases, plus payroll taxes for Medicare and Social Security, plus property taxes, auto taxes, gas taxes and cigarette taxes. For many successful Americans, over half of all they earn is now taken by government. And reading The New York Times’ year-end editorial, these may soon be seen as the good old days. The Times urges Obama to consider sweeping new taxes to “reduce income inequality.” Among the revenue raisers for which it urges consideration: Almost tripling the capital tax rate to 40 percent, capping deductions for high earners, restoring the estate tax to confiscatory levels, higher tax rates or surcharges on multimillion-dollar incomes and raising the corporate tax rate — already the highest in the world. “All that would be only a start,” says the Times. A carbon tax, a value-added tax, a financial transactions tax should all be looked at. Can a man love his country and hate its government? Of course. Ask Alexander Solzhenitsyn. Ask the patriots of ‘76. This un-American and egalitarian fanaticism rearing its head today may one day force just such a question upon American patriots. (Syndicated columnist Pat Buchanan has been a senior advisor to three presidents, twice a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination and the presidential nominee of the Reform Party in 2000. He won the New Hampshire Republican Primary in 1996.)

LETTERS One would expect a non-bias paper to give that story prominence To the editor, I would like to make readers aware of an AP story that was published in this very paper last Saturday, Dec. 28th. This was a story about the City of Chicago reaching the tragic milestone of 500 murders for the year. Chicago is now officially less safe then most war zones! This is BIG news considering the recent public debate over the 2nd Amendment and gun control. You see, Chicago has some of the most rigid and restrictive gun laws in the country. It should be noted that Chicago’s over-restrictive gun laws have actually contributed to the increase in crime. When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns. Most people did not see this story because it was hidden way back on page 16 between the Obituaries and Classifieds; the editors gave more prominence to other AP stories about a pet chicken, Gov. Lynch cleaning out his desk and a story about Lakes Region Flag Football registration (opens Jan. 1st). While

I commend The Laconia Daily Sun for running this story (most main stream liberal rags did not), I am shocked at how blatantly it was hidden. One would expect a non-bias paper with journalistic integrity to give this story appropriate prominence giving how relevant it is to current public debate. . . but that wouldn’t help the liberal narrative. Isn’t it ironic that the only industry boosted by the Obama presidency is the firearms industry, that he is trying to shut down? Can you say epic failure? The good news is that the 500 murder victims in Chicago are still eligible to vote for the Democrat of their choosing. Kevin Leandro Gilford (Editor’s note: The story Mr. Leandro refers to was placed toward the back of the paper because those were the only pages that had not yet gone to the press by the late hour that the story was made available by Associated Press.)

Latest data shows global warming levelled off about 14 year ago To the editor, A Department of Environmental Services news release dated Dec. 26 states: “the state has experienced erratic winters, record breaking high temperatures and several summer droughts. These weather extremes have prompted a state-wide discussion about how a changing climate can affect New Hampshire and our many natural-resource-based sectors.” Once again the DES is going fullbore into an expensive and fruitless program to fight climate change. And once again, the DES is playing selfserving taxpayer-funded political theatre with climate change. These “extreme” weather events have been occurring for as long as humans can remember them. There is no scientific basis for thinking that the “erratic winters, record breaking high temperatures and several summer droughts” that occurred recently were due to maninduced climate change, while the same types of events that occurred a couple of hundred years ago were not. We have had great gales, freshets, droughts, you name it, recorded throughout our early preindustrial history. There was the year —

reported to have had no summer. It even snowed in July. Well, that’s all weather. Climate change is something that took us out of the last Ice Age. Further — if the DES had bothered to check — both NASA and East Anglia University’s CRU have (reluctantly, I suppose) recently published data that show that global warming slowed and then levelled off about 15 years ago. The planet has been gently cooling since then, while atmospheric CO2 levels have continued to increase. CO2 — and other GHGs — therefore CANNOT be causally connected to global warming, yet the DES persists in this obsolete and discredited crusade to reduce emissions. I have previously challenged the DES to demonstrate that there is a direct connection between CO2 levels and warming. (Remember that correlation is not causation.) As the DES is unable to do so, it must re-evaluate its climate change policy (hiring policy also for science advisors), and save the money it’s wasting in a senseless fight against a purely natural phenomenon. Or the DES could spend the money where it will be effective in protecting our forests and waters. Sincerely, John Lukens, Ph.D.

LETTERS Laconia’s always been lucky when it comes to youth sports support To the editor, I am writing to say what should have been said when I was awarded the 2012 Debra Bieniarz Memorial Award from the City of Laconia. I am 43 years old and have lived all but about a year of it in Laconia. During that time I have been involved with many organizations, none closer to my heart then the Rich Velasquez Youth Sports Equipment Foundation. I was lucky enough to have been a friend of Rich Velasquez. I saw firsthand how he enjoyed seeing youth involved in sports. For that reason and for my own love of doing for others, and for youth is why I do what I do. This award was a total surprise to me. The night was kept from me and planned mostly be my wife, Shelly. I want to thank Randy and Sue Bullerwell for submitting my name for this award. Randy and Sue have always been there supporting me and RVYSEF from the start. There support and support from my family make it possible to be involved and help others. When receiving the award and being tricked to attend the City Council meeting, many thoughts were running through my mind. Then Mayor Seymour asked me if I wanted to say a few words. As with most anything asked from me I said sure. Then I said to myself, what, NO! Too late, there I

was in front of the microphone. I had to make it quick so no one would see my soft side. I do need to thank everyone that has ever been in my life. They are what set the roots and foundation for me as an individual. From coaches in Little League and Lou Athanas Basketball to my school teachers, they all had an influence on me. I was given the chance to play youth leagues despite having epilepsy. I was given the chance and for that reason I want to make sure every child has the same kind of chance regardless of any circumstances. Thank you to the Dunleavys, the Arrudas, the Achbers, the Joyals, and every other family that has been involved with youth sports in Laconia. A few others not to forget for me are Mr. Colby (RIP), Charlie Stafford, Coach Red Charland, and Tom O’Shea. This certainly does not include everyone. Laconia has always been lucky when it comes to youth sport support. Like some things in this great area we live in, we kind of take for granted and not realize what we have. I hope future generations allow the youth to play sports for the fun and not the stress that sometimes brought on by winning. Thank you Laconia for allowing me to be involved.

We have this new thing now to store solar power: batteries To the editor, In Tony Boutin’s letter of December 20, 2012, he mentioned that solar is not very effective on cloudy days. He is an update on solar power: they are

SAWYER from page one boy worked in the store, remembered walking downtown after school with others his age, whose families also owned and operated businesses downtown. “Everyone knew everyone,” he said. “Business was local and all about people to people.” After graduating from Laconia High School in 1964, Sawyer spent six years at the University of New Hampshire, first earning a degree in business administration and then a master’s degree in education counseling, and two in the United States Army as a community service officer at Fort Lee in Petersburg, Virginia. In 1972, he returned to Laconia to find that his father, who was diagnosed as diabetic when he sought to enlist within days of the attack on Pearl Harbor, was losing his eyesight. “It was a difficult time for him,” Sawyer said, explaining that his life was so closely entwined with the business that he was naturally frustrated by the prospect of having to leave it. Sawyer, then a young man of 33, acquired the business from his father in 1979 in a transaction he called “bittersweet.” At the time, the company operated stores in Wolfeboro and Plymouth as well as Laconia. At once, Sawyer moved the store in Laconia, purchasing the property at the foot of Main Street where the firm has been headquartered ever since. A year later he opened a store at the Mountain Valley

Mall in North Conway and in 1984 closed the store in Wolfeboro to accept the offer to become “the” jeweler at the newly developed Mill Falls Marketplace in Meredith. At its peak, the company operated four stores and employed nearly 50 people. The Meredith store was the last to close in 2009 when, Sawyer said, “we right-sized.” Much of the success of the business he credits to his “team,” all with at least 15 years in the industry and most of those with the firm. “My job is to manager the assets of Sawyer’s Jewelry — the people and the money.” he said, remarking that he long thought of himself as the chief financial officer. Not long after taking ownership of the business Sawyer began acquiring property downtown. In 1983, he purchased four storefronts at 50-62 Canal Street and later in partnership with Kevin Sullivan, then the owner of Melnick’s Shoe and Athletic Center, took an interest in the block housing the Empire Beauty School, Funky Monkey and Family Dollar. Sawyer is also among a group of investors who own the properties between the jewelry store and beauty school. “I believe it is the best interests of downtown to have people who are in business here own the real estate,” Swayer said. “They are invested in the community.” Sawyer chaired the Planning Board when the South Down Shores project see next page

from preceding page was being designed and developed and served a term on the City Council in 1990-1992. “I had unrealistic expectations,” he confessed, adding that he has not hankered after public office since. A longtime member of the Laconia Rotary Club, he played a major role in the capital campaign to fund construction of the addition to the Laconia Public Library and was among those instrumental in establishing the Main Street Program. While others wring their hands at the adverse effects of urban renewal on downtown, Sawyer

said that “complaining about urban renewal is like regretting the mistakes you made when you were 16. We have to accept what we have and do the best we can with it.” He would like to reopen Main Street to two-way traffic, from one end to the other, as well as the Colonial Theatre, stressing that “arts, entertainment and food are three important things for downtown.” Despite a wavy shock of grey that betrays the challenges of operating a business and managing properties through two severe recessions in a business district that’s a shadow of what it once was, Sawyer’s broad smile, flashing eyes reflect the energy, resilience and intensity he has applied to his enterprises, with which he said he has begun to “add some balance to my life.”

TILTON — Two days after a truck caught fire in one of the service bays at the Tilton AutoServ, General Manger Andrew Hosmer said everything is back to normal. Hosmer said a pickup that was inside the bay apparently caught fire around 2:23 a.m. on December 29. He also said one of his long-time parts department employees was in building checking in an early morning parts delivery and was there to call emergency responders immediately. “He heard a loud bang,” Homser said, noting the fire triggered the sprinkler system in the shop and the damage was largely contained to the lone pickup. Hosmer said Fire Clean Up Services of Belmont were there the next morning and did an “extraordinary job” cleaning up the smoke smell that permeated the building. He also wanted to thank the Tilton-Northfield Fire Department and the Tilton Police Department for their quick response. “I want people to know how important it is we have the Tilton-Northfield Fire Department led by Chief Brad Ober,” Hosmer said. “The fire was contained almost immediately and could have been catastrophic had it not been for their quick response,” he continued. In his media statement about the event, Ober said there were no injuries and although the fire remains under investigation, he said it doesn’t appear to be suspicious. Firefighters from Franklin and Bemont assisted at the scene and Sanbornton provided station coverage for Tilton-Northfield. — Gail Ober CAR from page one ning in a week.

Simmons said police want people to remember to lock their cars, even when they are in the driveway, and to use a second key to lock them while they are warming them.

‘Boo-Boo’ Giuffrida pleads guilty to receiving stolen property & credit card fraud; spitting on cop charge still pending By Gail OBer

LACONIA — The Lowell, Mass man associated with former boxer Dicky Eklund pleaded guilty to three counts of receiving stolen property and two counts of fraudulent use of a credit card in the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division on Monday. Judge Jim Carroll accepted a predetermined plea agreement from Gary “Boo Boo” Giuffrida, 58, of 339 High St., First Floor, Lowell, that sentenced him to one year in prison with all but 43 days suspended pending good behavior. He was credited with 43 days of time served. Giuffrida took a credit card belonging to one victim from the locker room at Planet Fitness, who reported it missing to the Belmont Police. Police learned someone fitting Giuffrida’s description had tried to use the card at Shaw’s Supermarket in the Belknap Mall shortly after it was stolen. The next day, a Planet Fitness employee reported that Giuffrida was “rummaging” through people’s belongings in the locker room. She told police who he was but he denied any involvement. Later that afternoon a third man reported his mother’s credit card had been taken and she learned it had just been used at American Eyecare also in the Belknap Mall. The responding officer went to the store and learned a man fitting Giuffrida’s description has just made a large purchase. The officer found Giuffrida in the parking lot and he was wearing a new pair of Oakley sunglasses on his head. After being taken into custody, police

found Giuffrida had three credit cards on him that had been stolen. Once in custody, Chief Vinnie Baiocchetti said Giuffrida damaged the cameras in the Belmont Police Department booking room. From there Giuffrida was taken to Lakes Region General hospital for evaluation. Once at the hospital, the transporting officer called Laconia Police for assistance in getting Giuffrida back into the cruiser for transport to the Belknap County Jail. During the course of preparing him for transport, Giuffrida alleged spit through a spit mask on the Belmont Officer. Recently, he was indicted by a Belknap County grand jury for one count of assault (the spitting) that carries the possibility of an enhanced penalty of two to five years in prison because he allegedly assaulted a police officer, who he knew was a police officer and acting in an official capacity. Giuffrida is scheduled to be arraigned in the next few weeks in Superior Court. He is free on personal recognizance bail until then. He has signed a waiver of extradition and has agreed to pay $776.82 in restitution. Carroll also ordered Giuffrida to stay away from the Belknap Mall, and all of his victims. Giuffrida was represented by Public Defender Kate Geraci. The 2010 movie “The Boxer” was based on the life of Dicky Eklund, also of Lowell. Eklund and his friend Giufrida were also featured in a 1996 HBO documentary — “High on Crack Street: Lost Lives in Lowell” — about crack cocaine use in Lowell.

SANDY HOOK from page 2 want the kids to reconnect with their friends and classroom teachers, and I think that’s going to be the healthiest thing.” Teachers are returning as well, and some have already been working on their classrooms. At some point, all those will be honored, but officials are still working out how and when to do so, Robinson said. “Everyone was part and parcel of getting as many kids out of there safely as they could,” she said. “Almost everybody did something to save kids. One art teacher locked her kids in the kiln room, and I got a message from her on my cellphone saying she wouldn’t come out until she saw a police badge.” After the evacuation, teachers grouped their children at a nearby fire station, Robinson said. One sang songs, while others read to the students, she said. Julian Ford, a clinical psychologist at the University of Connecticut who helped counsel families in the days immediately following the shooting, recommended addressing it as questions come up but otherwise focusing on regular school work. “Kids just spontaneously make associations and will start talking about something that reminds them of someone, or that reminds them of some of the scary parts of the experi-

ence,” Ford said. “They don’t need a lot of words; they need a few selective words that are thoughtful and sensitive, like, ‘We’re going to be OK,’ and ‘We really miss this person, but we’ll always be able to think about her or him in ways that are really nice.’” It will be important for parents and teachers to listen and be observant, Ford said. “Each of the boys and girls are going to have different reactions to different aspects of the environment, different little things that will be reminders to them,” he said. Parents might have a harder time with fear than children, Ford said. Before the shooting, a baby sitter would take Connors’ children to the bus stop. But Connors said he’ll probably take the third-graders to the bus the first few days. “I think that they need to get back into a normal routine as quickly as possible,” Connors said. “If you’re hovering over them at all times, it almost intensifies the fear for them.” His children, who escaped unharmed, ask questions about the gunman. “It’s hard for us to say why,” Connors said. “That’s kind of what we tell them. This person wasn’t well, was sick and didn’t get the help he needed.” Connors said his children are excited to go back to school but presee next page

Northern Pass fails to identify new route by self-imposed deadline BY ANNMARIE TIMMINS CONCORD MONITOR

CONCORD — Northern Pass officials missed their own deadline Monday when they failed to unveil a new North Country route for their behind-schedule hydro-power line by year’s end. Project officials had told investors in early 2012 they’d have a route in hand by the fall. When they didn’t, they pushed an announcement off again, to the end of 2012. In December, project officials reiterated that self-imposed deadline at a conference for financial investors. While Northern Pass officials did post an “update” on the project’s website yesterday, the post provided no new information about the proposed route through the northern-most part of the state, where the project has faced the most opposition. Instead, the post largely repeated what project officials have said previously as they’ve struggled to find landowners willing to sell them enough contiguous parcels to site a hydropower line up north. “We are pleased to report that we have identified a new route in the North Country that we will submit to the New Hampshire (project review board) in the future for consideration and review,” read the post. It continued: “We believe . . . communication and dialogue is critical to the ultimate success of the new route and the project overall and felt it was necessary to take some additional time to continue these efforts before we publicly announce the new routing proposal.” The post did not say if Northern Pass has acquired all the land it needs for the North Country section of the route or whether it is still trying to purchase final pieces. Nor did it give a new deadline by which a route would be made public or when construction would begin if the project receives the federal and state permits it needs. But project officials have said previously that construction won’t begin before 2014; it was originally supfrom preceding page dicted they might be nervous as the first day approaches. He hopes the grief counseling services continue, he said. “It’s going to be a long road back,” Connors said. “Back to what I guess is the biggest question. Everyone keeps throwing that word around the new normal. What does the new normal look like? I think everybody kind of has to define that for themselves.”

posed to start in 2013. Northern Pass spokesman Martin Murray declined to answer questions about the post yesterday, including whether the new route would include plans to bury power lines as opponents have requested. The lack of new route details did not go unnoticed by project opponents yesterday. The Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests has been trying to block Northern Pass by acquiring conservation easements on property it believes is critical to a route. It has raised more than $1 million toward that effort. Yesterday, forest society spokesman Jack Savage said Northern Pass’s route update left him reassured the society’s efforts have been successful. “They’ve been saying for a year and a half now that they would identify a new route,” Savage said. “They’ve been saying for two years now that they would build public support. They’ve had a governor challenge them to build public support. And none of that has come to pass. “I think you are seeing the result of a poorly conceived project falling flat,” Savage said. Northern Pass, announced in 2010, would bring hydro-power from Canada through New Hampshire and into the New England energy grid. Project partners – Hydro-Quebec, Northeast Utilities and Public Service of New Hampshire – plan to run the 140 miles of new line from Groveton south within existing PSNH transmission corridors. But they need to clear a new 40-mile path from Groveton north to the Canadian border. Since May, Northern Pass has bought nearly 45 parcels in the northernmost part of the state, spending more than $4 million for one 300-acre parcel. But project officials have faced fierce opposition from locals and environmental groups. Christophe Courchesne, a staff attorney with the Conservation Law Foundation, was watching for an announcement from Northern Pass yesterday. “There is nothing new in this announcement,” he said. “I am skeptical that as of today they are any closer to having a successful project than they have been for the last 18 months.” Savage agreed. “I think they just don’t have a route,” he said. “The route is a fairy tale at this point. It’s a nice story for investors, but it’s not true.” Opponents in the North Country were also awaiting an announcement see next page

ATV from page one way to Weirs Beach, nor does it take into account what City Manager Scott Myers called “soft costs,” such as the time city employees spend in planning for the event. Convinced that the account would continue to replenish itself, City Council decided in Fiscal Year 2011 to begin spending from the Bike Week proceeds. In keeping with the resolution that established the fund, the many has been spent on capital purchases that benefit the community at large but are also useful during Bike Week. In Fiscal Year 2011, the city spent $47,457 from the fund to purchase a pair of police cruisers. The following year, the fund made possible improvements to the Weirs Beach boardwalk as well as the purchase of two defibrillators. During the current fiscal year, the city has used Bike Week revenues to purchase an all-terrain vehicle for the Fire Department and a cruiser for the Police Department. There are also plans to order two additional defibrillators and a rescue vehicle for the Fire Department. After those expenditures are made, the account should have a remaining balance of $110,870.

Deborah Pendergast, deputy fire chief, said her department recently took delivery of the all-terrain vehicle, a Polaris Ranger 800, which will serve as a significant upgrade to a John Deere Gator that was used to respond to emergencies in places inaccessible to larger vehicles. Where the Gator had two seats that were open to the elements, the Ranger seats up to six people and has a removable enclosure. Pendergast said the Ranger will be employed during forest calls, such as fires or medical emergencies. The all-wheel drive vehicle, which was ordered with an additional set of studded tires, will also be used to respond to medical calls on the frozen surface of Lake Winnipesaukee. “We used to walk out to those,” she said. The smaller vehicles are also useful in crowded environments, such as Fourth of July celebrations and other events. Pendergast said, “It gets used a lot during Bike Week. Often we can get in to areas that we can’t get in with an ambulance or a truck.” She added that she was “glad” to see the fund being used to augment the city’s capabilities, especially Laconia’s ability to host one of the world’s largest motorcycle rallies. “It makes a lot of sense,” she said.

from preceding page from Northern Pass yesterday. Attorney Bob Baker of Columbia has monitored North Country land purchases by Northern Pass. He has also kept a close watch on deadlines set – and missed – by the project. “The bravado and confidence of (Northern Pass’s) spokespersons are matched only by their lack of credibility,” Baker said yesterday by email. Jim Dannis, another opponent from Dalton, called Northern Pass’s post a “non-announcement.” “From my perspective,” Dannis wrote in an email, “this . . . is a major setback for Northern Pass and its owner, Northeast Utilities. Top executives from Northeast Utilities repeatedly promised a full route announcement by the end of the year. They failed to

deliver. This not only hurts their credibility in the markets but calls into question whether Northern Pass has a viable route at all.” Dannis also questioned the approach Northern Pass officials are taking with the route – to announce it publicly after they have built more community support. “The announcement from today does not identify any route,” he wrote. “It gives no opportunity for the public to provide any additional input.” Citizen Watches Repairs

Underage drinking party broken up at Weirs home LACONIA — Police arrested 14 people between the ages of 16 and 21 at a house party on New Years Eve. Police said they were notified about the party at 36 Ashley Drive just after 11 p.m. and multiple officers responded.

Party goers face a variety of charges and most were released to a responsible adult. Ashley Drive is located off Pendelton Road, in the Weirs Beach area of the city. — Gail Ober

Stampede after fireworks kills 61 in Ivory Coast ABIDJAN, Ivory Coast (AP) — A crowd stampeded after leaving a New Year’s fireworks show early Tuesday in Ivory Coast’s main city, killing 61 people — many of them children and teenagers — and injuring more than 200, rescue workers said. Thousands had gathered at the Felix Houphouet Boigny Stadium in Abidjan’s Plateau district to see the fireworks. It was only the second New Year’s Eve fireworks display since peace returned to this West African nation after a bloody upheaval over presidential elections put the nation on the brink of civil war and turned this city into a battle zone. With 2013 showing greater promise, people were in the mood to celebrate on New Year’s Eve. Families brought children and they watched the rockets burst in the nighttime sky. But only an hour into the new year, as the

crowds poured onto the Boulevard de la Republic after the show, something caused a stampede, said Col. Issa Sako of the fire department rescue team. How so many deaths occurred on the broad boulevard and how the tragedy started is likely to be the subject of an investigation. Many of the younger ones in the crowd went down, trampled underfoot. Most of those killed were between 8 and 15 years old “The flood of people leaving the stadium became a stampede which led to the deaths of more than 60 and injured more than 200,” Sako told Ivory Coast state TV. Desperate parents went to the city morgue, the hospital and to the stadium to try to find missing children. Mamadou Sanogo was searching for his 9-year-old son, Sayed.

Snowmobile crashed into tree in Andover; tot hurts leg ANDOVER (AP) — Law enforcement officers say a snowmobile has crashed into a tree in New Hampshire, injuring the 2-year-old daughter of the operator. Conservation Officer Thomas Dakai of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department says the crash happened Tuesday afternoon on private property in Andover. He says a 35-year-old man was

driving a snowmobile with his toddler daughter sitting in front of him and his 4-year-old son sitting behind him. He says the snowmobile struck a tree, and the girl suffered a serious leg injury. She was taken to Franklin Regional Hospital. The crash was investigated by the Fish and Game Department and Andover police.

CLOT from page 2 lished, the doctors said. In their statement, Dr. Lisa Bardack of the Mount Kisco Medical Group and Dr. Gigi El-Bayoumi of George Washington University said Clinton was making excellent progress and was in good spirits. Clinton’s complication “certainly isn’t the most common thing to happen after a concussion” and is one of the few types of blood clots in the skull or head that are treated with blood thinners, said Dr. Larry Goldstein, a neurologist who is director of Duke University’s stroke center. He is not involved in Clinton’s care. The area where Clinton’s clot developed is “a drainage channel, the equivalent of a big vein inside the skull. It’s how the blood gets back to the heart,” Goldstein said. Blood thinners usually are enough to treat the clot and it should have no long-term consequences if her doctors are saying she has suffered no neurological damage from it, Goldstein said. Clinton returned to the U.S. from a trip to Europe, then fell ill with a stomach virus in early December that left her severely dehydrated and forced her to cancel a trip to North Africa and the Middle East. Until then, she had canceled only two scheduled overseas trips, one to Europe after breaking her elbow in June 2009 and one to Asia after the February 2010 earth-

quake in Haiti. Her condition worsened when she fainted, fell and suffered a concussion while at home alone in mid-December as she recovered from the virus. This isn’t the first time Clinton has suffered a blood clot. In 1998, midway through her husband’s second term as president, Clinton was in New York fundraising for the midterm elections when a swollen right foot led her doctor to diagnose a clot in her knee requiring immediate treatment. Clinton had planned to step down as secretary of state at the beginning of President Barack Obama’s second term. Whether she will return to work before she resigns remains a question. Democrats are privately if not publicly speculating: How might her illness affect a decision about running for president in 2016? After decades in politics, Clinton says she plans to spend the next year resting. She has long insisted she had no intention of mounting a second campaign for the White House four years from now. But the door is not entirely closed, and she would almost certainly emerge as the Democrat to beat if she decided to give in to calls by Democratic fans and run again. Her age — and thereby health — would probably be a factor under consideration, given that Clinton would be 69 when sworn in,

Medication Management:

Using In-Home Care Can Reduce Hospital Readmissions, Improve Seniors’ Lives

Here is a powerful statement: medication mismanagement is a leading cause of preventable hospital readmissions.* There are many reasons why seniors may mismanage their medications: not understanding the dosage or the reason for the medication; simple forgetfulness; inability to open a pill bottle; or perhaps even lacking the transportation or resources to obtain a refill. The problem Jennifer Harvey has become so widespread BSN CDP that more than 125,000 people RN Co-Ownerdie each year due to prescription Clinical Director medication non-adherence, according to the National Council for Patient Information and Education. With healthcare reform cracking down on hospital readmissions, home care has the opportunity to positively affect this problem. Various studies** have provided the following facts regarding improving medication management: • 11% of all hospital admissions are the result of prescription medication non-adherence. • Every day, prescription non-adherence costs more than $270 million in additional hospitalization and other medical costs. • 9 out of every 10 outpatients are taking prescribed medicines improperly, contributing to prolonged or additional illness. • People who miss doses need 3 times as many doctor visits as others and face increased medical costs. In-home caregivers can serve as a senior’s advocate in coordinating communication across care providers. Being aware of and informed on all of a senior’s current prescriptions helps avoid adverse drug interactions. LIVE FREE HOME HEALTH CARE can assist clients in developing better medication management practices by providing helpful reminders and medication management charts, and through regular, ongoing in-home care services. We can also monitor for medication side effects and report to others when an issue is potentially problematic.

IS YOUR BITE WORSE THAN YOUR BARK? A “good” bite is one in which the teeth, bones, and muscles are aligned in a posture that is functional, stable, and comfortable. Bite problems occur when teeth are not aligned in harmony with the jaw joints, bones, and chewing muscles. When your teeth are not aligned correctly, some of the symptoms you can experience are worn, cracked, fractured, or loose teeth, aching teeth and jaws, and morning headaches. The common denominator in all these conditions is hyperactive chewing muscles. When you clench or grind your teeth you can exert more than 300 pounds of bite pressure – one patient was recorded at over 900 psi. That’s a lot of pressure on the teeth, and it causes different problems for different people. The diagnosis of these problems involves a careful examination of your bite pattern (“occlusal analysis”) using study models and may include testing with a computer driven mapping system called a T-Scan. The T-Scan enables the operator to make a movie of your bite pattern with 100 frames per second, and this information makes it possible to adjust your bite to a condition of harmony that is stable and comfortable. This “occlusal adjustment” or equilibration is a very delicate procedure that requires special skills and patience, but when done with care it can reduce the risk of future dental damage due to bite problems.

Furniture craftsman Phillip Eisenmann is Artist in the Library for January and February

Visitors can see this Tiger Kitchen table at the Gilmanton YearRound Library during January and February when the work of furniture craftsman Phillip Eisenmann will be featured as “Artist in the Library.’’ A reception for the artist is scheduled for Saturday afternoon, January 5, from 1:30 to 3. (Courtesy photo)

GILMANTON — The furniture crafting skill of Gilmanton resident Phillip Eisenmann will be featured at the Gilmanton Year-Round Library during

January and February. A reception for the artist is scheduled for Saturday afternoon, January 5, from 1:30 to 3. One of the pieces on display will be available for bidding as an item in the silent auction to be held at the annual Library Icebreaker evening on February 16. A visit to the Library will allow people to submit bids ahead of time. Eisenmann has been designing and building custom furniture and cabinetry for more than 10 years. After graduating from the University of New Hampshire in 1995, Phil returned home to his native southern Ohio where he began working with a small finish carpentry crew and later a small custom furniture and cabinetmaking company. In 2000, after returning to New England, Phil launched Eisenmann Woodworking in his new home town of Gilmanton, to continue building and designing custom furniture and cabinetry based on traditional designs, but with the practicality of today’s needs and lifestyles. Eisenmann Woodworking specializes in heirloom quality Early American and Shaker style casework and furniture, but the portfolio includes custom designs ranging from Adirondack (Camp) Furniture, to Arts and Craft Styles, to Contemporary Designs. Being a small shop, Eisenmann Woodworking takes great pride in working intimately with clients on every aspect of their commission, whether it is a single Tavern Table or an entire Kitchen.

Tilton Winter Farmer’s Market open weekends TILTON — The Tilton Winter Farmers’ Market, the only two-day market in the state, will open Saturday, January 5 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the same hours on Sunday, January 6. ‘’We’ll be open two days on the weekend right up until March 30’’ says Joan O’Connor, founder of the market, who says the phenomenal success of the market in its first year, when it drew as many as 1,000 customers a day, led to the decsion to expand the market. She said that the market is grateful to the AutoServ Family of Dealerships the Lakes Region, which has made the former Hillside Agway store available to the market for the second winter in a row, providing a convenient location to pick up farm-fresh local food and homemade goodies. Currently it is expected that the market will have 45 vendors selling their goods; including organic produce and greens, locally raised meats, eggs, dairy, cheese, homemade breads and pastries, gourmet popcorn, tomatoes, garlic, fudge, apples, cider, local honey, granola, NH maple syrup, jams and jellies, coffee and teas, wine and beer, body care, herbal products, dog treats, composting worms.

New this year are the New Hampshire Mushroom Company of Tamworth and a micro-brewery from Canterbury, Canterbury Aleworks. For those hooked on dairy and cheese, Brookford Farm of Canterbury is one out of five cheese vendors at the market. Dennis Gaudet, owner of AutoServ, knows the importance of fresh foods and healthy living. “I am excited for the opportunity to once again sponsor the market and help bring fresh offerings to the community. In the summer there are many places to buy fresh foods, but the options dwindle during the winter months. Inside AutoServ Tilton, we opened the AutoCafe as a quick alternative for our employees, customers, and the general public to grab healthy breakfast and lunch offerings instead of fast food. In December we opened the AutoServ Fitness Center, so all of employees have free access to healthy activity. It is important that healthy options are easily available, and the Tilton Winter Farmers’ Market offers just that. The market also helps the community by giving vendors a local place to bring their goods to the public. We are very pleased to be able to once again support the market and the community”

Aircraft raffle drawing held Saturday at Laconia Airport GILFORD — The non-profit group, WinnAero, has scheduled its raffle drawing with thegrand prize being a 1966 Cessna 172 four place aircraft plus $ 1,200 in cash at the Laconia Airport Terminal on Saturday, January 5. The ceremony will start at noon with the actual drawing at 1 p.m. Retired Air Force Colonel Bob Fortnam of Pembroke, NH will have the honor of drawing the winning ticket. Col. Fortnam was a bomber pilot during World War II and his story is inspirational. Still actively flying today on a weekly basis at age 89, Col. Fortnam was the World War II co-pilot of a bomber which sustained major battle damage. With the aircraft commander incapacitated with a stomach wound, Col. Fortnam took command and attempted to bring the crippled bomber home to its base in England. Unable to make it due to damage, the Colonel successfully brought the aircraft down in a crash landing in then occupied Holland.

Captured by the Germans, he and his crew, including the wounded aircraft commander, survived 19 months as POWs before returning to the States. The Board of WinnAero is most pleased that this aviation combat hero has consented to drawing the winning ticket. WinnAero believes that this raffle prize, with a dollar value of $ 27,500 plus the $ 1,200 cash, may be the single highest value raffle ever held in the Lakes Region. WinnAero’s mission is to provide aviation and aerospace career education to youth in a hands-on manner. All its educational outreach reinforces the academic STEM Principles of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Proceeds from the raffle, less expenses, will be used to fund educational programming. Additional information available at www.winnaero.org.

PLYMOUTH — Longtime employee of Plymouth State University, Deb Tobine of Campton, has been named the recipient of the 2012 Patricia Storer Award. Tobine was honored for her ongoing commitment to assisting PSU students in achieving their goals, as the academic advisor. The Patricia Storer Award was established in 2008 to honor a Plymouth State employee who exemplifies dedication, knowledge and respect in serving the students, staff and faculty at Plymouth State University. Storer was a longtime Plymouth State employee who, during her career, served in a variety of roles, including faculty member in the education department, dean of women students, associate dean of academic affairs, and registrar. “Persistence and determination have paid off in my life, and that is what I try to instill in the students with whom I meet,” said Tobine. “We are all a part of our students’ lives, and they a part of ours. For most, we are their foundation, their encouragement, their tough love, their support. We are all a part of helping to make their dreams come true.” PSU President Sara Jayne Steen said Deb Tobine’s dedication to Plymouth State students is an excellent reflection of the award’s namesake. “We are honoring someone today for extraordinary work in education, with the theme that education really does transform our students’ lives,” said

Steen. “The award also affirms Ut Prosim (That I May Serve) as a motto fully lived on the campus.” Steen also related receiving a letter from the parent of a student, thanking the university for the efforts made on behalf of the student by Deb Tobine. “They thought of her as an angel and said they would never forget her,” noted Steen. Tobine also stated that some of the best advice she can provide struggling students is to learn from their mistakes. “Yes, we need to hold them accountable and responsible for their actions, but we are also in a place where we can nurture them and help them develop the skills that will lead them into a successful life after PSU.” PSU’s Associate Vice President for Undergraduate Studies, Dr. David Zehr, echoed the praise and respect her colleagues have for Tobine. “She is wise and warm-hearted,” Zehr said. “She values rigor and integrity. She is supportive without coddling, and she carries out her duties with compassion, with a smile, and with a genuine commitment to helping all students, all faculty, and all staff understand the importance of academic advising.” During her 28 years of service to PSU, Deb has earned an associate’s degree and a bachelor’s in Interdisciplinary Studies from Plymouth State. Tobine is married and has two children and four grandchildren. She is the daughter of Virginia Burnham of West Rumney.

by Darby Conley

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). People always want what they can’t have. You know this, and you intuitively feel compelled to create a sense of scarcity around what you have to offer. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Nothing attracts a crowd like a crowd. “Everyone is doing it” is an idea that many influencers use to add numbers to their group. You’ll use this principle in some way today. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When you find yourself thinking you don’t have control over a situation, look for all the ways in which you do have control. There is always something to be done. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Rejection is no fun, and most people will do anything to avoid it. Yet, the only way to make exciting things happen in your life is to risk rejection. So you’ll gladly take the risk today. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Everyone has something to join and follow these days, but finding the truly worthy cause is still a challenge. Research will be necessary in order to see past the superficial to the actual work being done. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 2). You don’t even have to think about all the kind words you say. They naturally flow from your compassionate heart, connecting and endearing you to the people who make your life wonderful this year. The opportunities you attract with your compassion will move you to new places. You’ll earn big from a July sale. Aries and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 15, 2, 9, 3 and 17.

by Chad Carpenter

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You feel driven and tenacious now, but can you keep this up in the days, weeks and months to come? Make a longterm plan that includes checkpoints. Accountability will be key. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). In a sense, you’re on a never-ending journey, and therefore you cannot expect to arrive anytime soon -- or anytime at all, really. This should help you relax and enjoy yourself. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If you want to know what a big-time success looks like, look in the mirror. You are capable of greatness. Whatever strides you make today are just the beginning. Keep track of them. You’ll want to remember them later. CANCER (June 22-July 22). While trying to stick to the moral high road, distracting thoughts could have you wondering what exactly is in it for you? You are, after all, a human being and not a saint. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your actions will reflect your basic belief that everyone is on the same level. You see those who try to separate people into classes as sadly misguided, and you’re right. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Don’t be a good soldier in the army of life. If you’re not headed where you want to go, stop marching and step out of line. Expect trial and error. Don’t settle for taking orders from an invisible leader. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your efforts to create rapport may not seem to be working, but they really are. The connection will be made. Note that it’s much easier to have an influence over people who like you.

In 1983, the musical play “Annie” closed on Broadway after a run of 2,377 performances. In 2006, 12 miners died in a methane gas explosion at the Sago Mine in West Virginia, W.Va., but one miner, Randal McCloy Jr., was eventually rescued. One year ago: A gas pipeline in central Syria exploded; the government blamed “terrorists” while the opposition accused officials of playing on fears of religious extremism and terrorism to rally support behind President Bashar Assad.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, January 2, 2013— Page 21

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Dear Annie: I was diagnosed with depression more than 20 years ago. When I was in high school, I was hospitalized for close to a year. Because money and insurance have been sporadic, I have been on and off of medication. Plus, once I get on a good medication, I start feeling that I don’t need it anymore. Last year, my husband lost his job, so I have no insurance and have been off of medication since. Annie, my depression feels like it is crushing me. I am tired all the time and not interested in doing anything. I interpret everything my husband says as insulting or angry, although I know it isn’t. Part of the problem is, we haven’t had sex in three years. He says he just doesn’t want to. So I feel pretty worthless. I fantasize about dying. I feel this dark cloud hanging over me. I try to put on a happy face, but it doesn’t help much. My husband knows about my depression, but there isn’t much we can do without money. Please help me. -- Tired of It Dear Tired: There are resources for you. First contact the National Alliance on Mental Illness (nami.org) at 1-800-950NAMI. You also can find a listing of free or low-cost health centers in your area through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (hhs.gov) and the Partnership for Prescription Assistance (pparx.org), which also can help with medication. And don’t overlook your local community centers and nearby medical schools for low-cost counseling services. Just writing us shows your commitment to getting well. Hang in there. Dear Annie: My husband and I have a friend who was given an award a few years ago. Many of us attended the event, and friends from afar sent congratulations and accolades. Since then, however, “Ralph” brings up the award at every occasion, showering everyone with photos and bragging to the skies.

This is getting rather tiring to the rest of us. Some people have made a few comments to him, saying it’s time to “let it go,” but it doesn’t help. Ralph thinks he’s truly hot stuff now, and it’s become unbearable to be around him. We all enjoy the company of his wife, who unfortunately doesn’t try to curtail his boasting, but we certainly don’t wish to be around Ralph anymore. Is there any polite statement we could make to get him to stop the ego talk? -- Had It Dear Had It: Poor Ralph. This is obviously the only thing he has to brag about, and he’s not going to stop as long as he thinks he can still get mileage out of it. Try to be tolerant. When he mentions his award, plaster a fake smile onto your face, pat his arm and say, “Yes, Ralph, we know,” and then change the subject or walk away. Dear Annie: This is in response to “Some Talk, Please,” who reports that her husband is otherwise a good guy, but rarely talks to her and sulks for sex. She also said that one of her children has been diagnosed with Asperger syndrome. I would like to remind her that the apple does not fall far from the tree. If they have a child with Asperger’s, it is possible that her husband may have the same diagnosis. This was the case with my son and my husband. I strongly suspected my husband had some form of autism. He was gracious enough to see a psychiatrist, who diagnosed him with Asperger syndrome and schizoid disorder. My husband truly is clueless about intimacy. There are resources available on the Internet for spouses of people with Asperger’s and also for those who want to learn how to be intimate. I let my hubby know I am grateful for all he does. I also let him know that when my emotional needs are met, then I will engage in sex. -- Been There, Done That

FISCAL CLIFF from page 2 drawn, and fell far short of a sweeping plan that combined tax changes and spending cuts to reduce federal deficits. That proved to be a step too far in the two months since Obama called congressional leaders to the White House for a postelection stab at compromise. Majority Republicans did their best to minimize the bill’s tax increases, just as they abandoned their demand from earlier in the day to add spending cuts to the package. “By making Republican tax cuts permanent, we are one step closer to comprehensive tax reform that will help strengthen our economy and create more and higher paychecks for American workers,” said Rep. Dave Camp of Michigan, chairman of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee. He urged a vote for passage to “get us one step closer to tax reform in 2013” as well as attempts to control spending. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi also said the legislation included “permanent tax relief for the middle class,” and she summoned lawmakers to provide bipartisan support as the Senate did. The bill would also prevent an expiration of extended unemployment benefits for an estimated two million jobless, block a 27 percent cut in fees for doctors who treat Medicare patients, stop a $900 pay increase for lawmakers from taking effect in March and head off a threatened spike in milk prices. It would stop $24 billion in acrossthe-board spending cuts set to take effect over the next two months, although only about half of that total would be offset with savings elsewhere in the budget. The economic as well as political stakes were considerable. Economists have warned that without action by Congress, the tax increases and spending cuts that technically took effect with the turn of the new year at midnight could send the economy into recession. Even with enactment of the legislation, taxes are on the rise for millions. A 2 percentage point temporary cut in the Social Security payroll tax, originally enacted two years ago to stimulate the economy, expired with the end of 2012. Neither Obama nor Republicans made a significant effort to extend it. House Republicans spent much of the day struggling to escape a political corner they found themselves in.

“I personally hate it,” Rep. John Campbell of California, said of the measure, giving voice to the concern of many Republicans that it did little or nothing to cut spending. “The speaker the day after the election said we would give on taxes and we have. But we wanted spending cuts. This bill has spending increases. Are you kidding me? So we get tax increases and spending increases? Come on.” Cantor told reporters at one point, “I do not support the bill. We are looking, though, for the best path forward.” Within hours, Republicans abandoned demands for changes and agreed to a simple yes-or-no vote on the Senate-passed bill. They feared that otherwise the Senate would refuse to consider any alterations, sending the bill into limbo and saddling Republicans with the blame for a whopping middle class tax increase. One Senate Democratic leadership aide said Majority Leader Harry Reid would “absolutely not take up the bill” if the House changed it. The aide spoke on condition of anonymity, citing a requirement to keep internal deliberations private. Despite Cantor’s remarks, Boehner took no public position in advance of voting the bill as he sought to negotiate a conclusion to the final crisis of a two-year term full of them. The brief insurrection wasn’t the first time that the tea party-infused House Republican majority has rebelled against the party establishment since the GOP took control of the chamber 24 months ago. But with the two-year term set to end Thursday at noon, it was likely the last. And as was true in earlier cases of a threatened default and government shutdown, the brinkmanship came on a matter of economic urgency, leaving the party open to a public backlash if tax increases do take effect on tens of millions. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office said the measure would add nearly $4 trillion over a decade to federal deficits, a calculation that assumed taxes would otherwise have risen on taxpayers at all income levels. There was little or no evident concern among Republicans on that point, presumably because of their belief that tax cuts pay for themselves by expanding economic growth and do not cause deficits to rise. The relative paucity of spending cuts was a sticking point with many House Republicans. Among other items, the extension of unemployment benefits costs $30 billion, and is not offset by savings elsewhere.
