5 implicated in theft of $8k in silver coins from Laconia man By gAil oBeR
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — Five people, included two men who are brothers, and two women who are sisters, are facing a variety of charges related to the burglary of a Lake Street home and subsequent theft of thousands of dollars worth of silver. According to police affidavits, on September 26 Chad Verrill, Randy Verrill, and Susan Weeks allegedly went to the home of a Lake Street man after learning from someone the man had a locked gun safe in his closet. Chad and Randy Verrill are each charged with burglary, theft, and breach of bail. A fourth person, Lindsey McNeel allegedly let them in to the home and is charged with being an accomplice to burglary and being an accomplice to theft. A fifth person, Nicole Perra is charged with one misdemeanor count of lying to police. Although the police affidavits don’t detail what the relationship was between the victim and McNeel and Pera, who are sisters, presumably he knew them both and one or both had access see SiLVEr page 7

Popular file-sharing website Megaupload shut down
McLEAN, Va. (AP) — One of the world’s most popular file-sharing sites was shuttered Thursday, and its founder and several company officials were accused of facilitating millions of illegal downloads of films, music and other content. An indictment accused Megaupload. com of costing copyright holders at least $500 million in lost revenue. The indictment was unsealed one day after websites including Wikipedia and Craigslist shut down in protest of two congressional proposals intended to make it easier for authorities to go after websites with pirated material, especially those with overseas headquarters and servers. Megaupload is based in Hong Kong, but some of the alleged pirated content was hosted on leased servers in Ashburn, Va., which gave federal authorities jurisdiction, the indictment said.

Bizarre day for GOP field: Perry quits in favor of Newt; Santorum was actual winner in Iowa; & ex claims Newt wanted open marriage NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — The race for the Republican presidential nomination is veering toward South Carolina surreal. Mitt Romney was stripped of his Iowa caucus victory Thursday, then was stung by Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s withdrawal and endorsement of Newt Gingrich, the former House speaker who was stunningly accused in turn by an ex-wife of seeking an open marriage so he could keep his mistress. “Newt’s not perfect, but who among us is,” said Perry, abruptly quitting the race
shortly before an evening debate and less than 48 hours before the polls open in Saturday’s first-in-the-South primary. His decision to end a once-promising candidacy left Romney, Gingrich, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and Texas Rep. Ron Paul the remaining contenders in the race to pick a Republican to challenge Democratic President Barack Obama this fall. Recent polls, coupled with Perry’s endorsement, suggested Gingrich was the candidate with the momentum and Romney the one
struggling to validate his standing as frontrunner. Whatever else the impact, the day’s events reduced the number of contenders vying to emerge as Romney’s principal conservative alternative. The former Massachusetts governor had other challenges in a state where unemployment approaches 10 percent. He adamantly refused to explain why some of his millions were invested in the Cayman Islands, how much was there or whether any other funds were held offshore. see GOP page 12
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — Kodak’s moment has come and gone. The glory days, when Eastman Kodak Co. ruled the world of film photography, lasted for over a century. Then came a stunning reversal of fortune: cutthroat competition from Japanese firms in the 1980s and a seismic shift to the digital technology it pioneered but couldn’t capitalize on. Now
comes a wistful worry that this American business icon is edging toward extinction. Kodak filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Thursday, raising the specter that the 132-year-old trailblazer could become the most storied casualty of a digital age. Already a shadow of its former self, cashpoor Kodak will reorganize in bankruptcy court, as it seeks to boost its cash position
and stay in business. The Rochester, N.Y.based company hopes to peddle a trove of photo patents and morph into a new-look powerhouse built around printers and ink. Even if it succeeds, it seems unlikely to ever resemble what its red-on-yellow K logo long stood for — a brand synonymous in every corner of the planet with captursee KODAK page 11
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Sarah Burke was an X Games star with a grass-roots mentality — a daredevil superpipe skier who understood the risks inherent to her sport and the debt she owed to it. The pioneering Canadian freestyler, who helped get superpipe accepted into the Olym-
pics, died Thursday after a Jan. 10 crash during a training run in Park City, Utah. Burke, who lived near Whistler, in British Columbia, was 29. Tests revealed she sustained “irreversible damage to her brain due to lack of oxygen and blood after cardiac arrest,” according to
a statement released by her publicist, Nicole Wool, on behalf of the family. A four-time Winter X Games champion, Burke crashed on the same halfpipe where snowboarder Kevin Pearce sustained a traumatic brain injury during a training see SKIER page 9

Our growing class divide What planet does presidential wannabe Rick Santorum live on? When it comes to grasping the situation of America’s hard-hit workaday majority, this sweater-vested ultra-right-winger is further out than Pluto. In a recent debate, Santorum assailed a tax plan proposed by frontrunner Mitt Romney. It wasn’t the plan’s details that caused Rick to stamp his tiny feet, but Romney’s expressed intent to help the “middle class.” Tut-tut, chided the ideologically-pure Santorum, Republicans mustn’t use such language, for it creates an impression of class warfare. After all, he lectured: “There are no classes in America. We don’t put people in classes.” Sure, Rick — today’s jobless economy, a national epidemic of union busting and wage knockdowns, absurd tax giveaways to the superrich, the ongoing Wall Street bailout, inexcusable corporate subsides, rising poverty, the slashing of antipoverty programs and a decade of falling incomes for the vast majority, while the elite 1-percent makes off with triple-digit increases in its wealth — there’s no class war happening. Just close your eyes, hum a happy tune ... and live on Pluto. Meanwhile, in the same week that Santorum spoke, the Pew Research Center released a new survey showing how far removed he is from regular people’s experience and concerns. Two-thirds of Americans see “strong conflicts” between the rich and poor in our country, a stark division between those few who have wealth, power and security, and the vast majority who don’t. The few do not have the same objectives as the many, and the survey found that this class separation — yes, class — is the No. 1 source of social tension in America today. Interestingly for the far-out Santorum, not only do 73-percent of Democrats and 68-percent of independents agree, but so do 55-percent of Republicans. One of the hidebound myths in our culture is the Horatio Alger fantasy: You might be born poor, Bucko, but America’s the land of upward mobility — anyone with grit and
gumption can scramble from the very bottom of the economic ladder all the way to the top. At last, though, this musty myth is being dispelled, as everyone from academics to Wall Street protesters are proving that it simply isn’t true. Even prominent politicos are catching on. As one said last fall, “(Movement) up into the middle income is actually greater ... in Europe than it is in America.” That’s no liberal talking, it’s Rick Santorum! The same guy who now says, “There are no classes in America,” was at least visiting reality just a few months ago. While GOP leaders still try to dismiss the issue of income inequality, the mobility issue goes to the very core of America’s identity — it’s too big to deny or ignore. John Bridgeland , a former Bush aide who now heads a policy group called Opportunity Nation, says bluntly that Republicans “will feel a need to talk about a lack of mobility — a lack of access to the American Dream.” Many recent studies confirm that our country has developed a class “stickiness” that is alarmingly dangerous to our social unity. A Pew research report finds that about 62-percent of Americans born on the top rungs of the economic ladder stay there as adults, and 65-percent born on the bottom rungs remain stuck there for life. In a ranking of nine affluent countries, Canada was tops in upward mobility and the U.S. was last. America won’t offer a true opportunity for upward mobility unless we restore a unity of purpose among all of our people — and we can’t achieve that as long as top corporate and governmental leaders deliberately widen the chasm separating the rich from the rest of us. (Jim Hightower has been called American’s most popular populist. The radio commentator and former Texas Commissioner of Agriculture is author of seven books, including “There’s Nothing In the Middle of Road but Yellow Stripes and Dead Armadillos” and his new work, “Swim Against the Current: Even Dead Fish Can Go With The Flow”.)
Senator Forrester voted against funds for Plymouth State To the editor, State Senator Jeanie Forrester is voting against funds for Plymouth State University, and all the other state higher education institutions. Educated people are the best way to have full employment in New Hampshire, and the country. The short-sighted stand taken by
the Republicans is destructive of the future of our state. We all need to let our elected representatives hear from us on these ill conceived bills which are damaging our future. Kent Warner Center Harbor

LETTERS Sen. Forrester could have helped restore $10M to UNH system To the editor, I am deeply disappointed in Sen. Jeanie Forrester’s recent votes to defeat SB-309-FN, a bill that would have restored $10-million in state funding to the University System of New Hampshire (USNH), which includes Plymouth State University. Sen. Forrester was one of six Republican votes against the bill in the Senate Finance Committee and she again voted against the bill in the full Senate. The Legislature’s $45-million in cuts to USNH funding last year were utterly short-sighted and mean-spirited. Prior to the cuts, New Hampshire already ranked dead last among the 50 states in state support for public higher education, with the result that students graduating from college in New Hampshire were already burdened with the highest student debt load among the 50 states, second only to the District of Columbia. And yet the Republican bullies in the Statehouse couldn’t stop themselves from kicking our college kids and parents even harder when they were already down. SB-309-FN was intended to put some of the funding back into public higher education. The bill was sponsored by Sen. Molly Kelly of Keene, who plainly has a better sense than
Sen. Forrester of what it means to have a state public university in her district. New Hampshire’s great commodity, when it comes to attracting strong businesses and higher-wage jobs to our state, is its educated workforce. Investing in public higher education is the surest way of guaranteeing that New Hampshire continues to produce the next generation of skilled workers. The Republicans’ attack on public higher education sends two messages: first, to our students, that they need to leave New Hampshire to find an affordable college education; and second, to prospective employers, that our state does not put a priority or premium on training a highly skilled workforce. Once our students leave New Hampshire to seek their educations elsewhere, we know they won’t be back, and especially not if we can’t attract skilled jobs to our state. Senator Forrester’s votes against public higher education are a blow to the state and a particular blow to her district. If we can’t depend on our own State Senator to put the interests of her constituents ahead of her allegiance to her party bosses, we need to find a new state senator. Paul Phillips Plymouth

LETTERS Better example of irrational mind of liberals couldn’t be dreamed up To the editor, The 535 million dollars thrown down a big green rat hole of crony paybacks plus the 1,110 laid off employees might have been worth the cost if this exposure had brought some sanity to the environmentalist movement. Especially since Solyndra was the third solar company to go bankrupt in 2011. No such luck. To quote investigative bulldog, Michelle Malkin, this is the “Night of the Keynesian Dead” and this Utopian nightmare has legs, big, hairy, expensive ones. Apparently, sweet dreams for the likes of James Veverka and Paul Krugman. Profusely, perspiring night terrors for most of the rest of us. DNC spokeswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, no stranger to audacious bloviating she, assured Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday” that President Obama bears no responsibility because he was not the CEO of Solyndra. The facts are as follows: (1) Obama met with executives of Solyndra at least 20 times, after which his administration fast-tracked the loan approvals; (2) preliminary studies did not conclude that this company was a viable entity yet Obama ordered that stimulus funds be forwarded to this monstrous boondoggle; (3) Solyndra senior executives walked away with bonuses after the company collapsed; (4) the bottom line is that this loan was approved even after the administration had been told that bankruptcy was inevitable. Ms. Wasserman-Schultz nevertheless remains convinced that our President has no connection to this mess of gangrene. A more prescient example of the irrational mind of progressive Democrats could not have been dreamed up by Michael Moore and his environmentalist pals.
Getting back to the “Environmentalism has Legs” theory, check out the doubling down of taxpayer funded “green technologies”. First, Tonopah Solar company is getting a $737-million loan from Obama’s DOE. One of the investment partners is Pacific Corporate Group. PCG’s executive director is Ron Pelosi, brother of the former speaker of the house. Do you suppose the two of them lamented Solyndra’s untimely demise while sharing spoon victuals at Nancy’s purported $10,000 per night Four Seasons hotel suite in Hawaii? At least this was on Nancy’s dime though police escorts did cost the local taxpayers $34,000 to keep her royal highness comfy and safe. Could myopic movie maker, Michael Moore have come up with a more perfect example of “crony socialism”? I think not. First Solar, Sun Power, ethanol subsidies, the Chevy Volt and so many other overhyped, ineffective, green technologies backed by hard earned citizen greenbacks of which we seem to have little say in the matter. Google the likes of George Soros, George Kaiser and you’ll get an eye full of billionaire, progressive, influence peddling that leads straight to the White House. Jeffrey Immelt, star of stage, screen, GE, NBC and Obama’s Jobs Czar provides just one more oxmoronic, Democrat backdrop for all this blatant, crony, socialist corruption. The fact that liberal Democrats continue to extort our money and throw it away when this country so desperately needs some fiscal common sense makes me “more frustrated than an illiterate rapper trying to find a word that rhymes with luck”, to quote Larry the Cable Guy. I wonder if anyone else out there feels the same way I do? Russ Wiles Tilton
Beer & baseball go together; I urge commission to reconsider To the editor, I was disappointed with the Laconia Parks & Recreation Commission’s recent decision to deny the Laconia Muskrats’ request to sell beer at Robbie Mills Field. While I appreciate the commission’s concerns for public safety and the continued maintenance of a family-friendly environment at the park, I think a total dismissal of the idea is inappropriate. As Muskrats’ GM Noah Crane mentioned, beer and baseball have a long history. Beer has been served at Major League ballparks around the U.S. for decades, and some ballparks are even named after breweries that sponsor them (see: Coors Field, Miller Field, Busch Stadium.). Fenway Park allows fans to drink beer during the game (up to the 7th inning, anyway), and last year it successfully petitioned the City of Boston to permit the park to sell mixed drinks as well. To my knowledge, parents still take their kids to Fenway to watch the Red Sox despite the availability of alcohol.
Closer to home, attending a ballgame at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium (home of the New Hampshire Fisher Cats in Manchester) was named 2011’s “Favorite Sporting Event for Families” by Parenting New Hampshire Magazine. Either the magazine’s judges completely overlooked Samuel Adams Bar & Grill out in left field, or they simply concluded that families, beer, and sports can all responsibly occupy the same place at the same time. We should not hesitate to draw the same conclusion here in Laconia, especially considering the sale of beer would substantially increase the Muskrats’ projected revenues (which would improve the club’s long-term viability) and entice young adults and groups to take in a Muskrats’ game. I urge the commission to reconsider its decision and allow beer to be sold at Robbie Mills Field in a responsible manner befitting America’s pastime. Matt Huot Laconia

To the editor, The Laconia Fire Department wants to warn everyone about the hazards of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. Carbon monoxide is one of the leading causes of accidental poisoning deaths, and accounts for more than 50,000 emergency department visits each year in the U.S. During the cold weather months people will seal up their homes as tight as possible to keep in the heat. Moreover, we simply stay indoors for longer periods in the winter months. Many elderly people stay in their homes for extended periods. This can lead to a medical emergency, which can be fatal, caused by a build-up of carbon monoxide (CO) in the blood stream. Heat equipment that burns fuel (gas stoves, furnaces, water heaters, wood stoves, coal stoves, fireplaces, pellet stoves, gas dryers, and kerosene heaters) can generate carbon monoxide. If a person stays inside their home for prolonged periods, they will breathe in and accumulate dangerous levels of this gas. If the heat equipment is defective, the build-up of CO can be rapid and fatal. CO detectors collect the deadly gas and then will alarm if levels exceed safe limits. They alarm for rapid build up of the gas and for slow accumulating build up. Place a CO detector in your home if you use any type of heating equipment that burns fuel such as wood, coal, or gas. A small leak in a chimney can allow CO to seep into your home. If the home is well insulated the gas will not escape. Normal use of doors will exchange the air in your home. However, if you do not leave the home the gas will stay inside with you. Occasionally open your doors or windows to air out the home. Do not run your car in the garage. A car engine produces enormous quantities of CO and can quickly overcome the occupants.
Never use an outdoor grille inside your home. Do not use a gas oven to heat your home. Do not use any gasoline-powered engines (snow blowers, generators) in your home/garage, or near doors or windows. Do not sleep in any room with an unvented gas or kerosene heater. Follow instructions on any portable heating device A serious problem with CO poisoning is that a person affected will feel tired. Unknowingly the person or persons will go to sleep and possibly never awake. That is why CO is known as the “Silent Killer”. You cannot see or smell the gas. Only a CO detector will tell you that it is present. Laconia Fire Department has portable CO detectors in most of our fire trucks, as do most area fire departments. We use these devices to help locate the source of the CO. Do not ignore symptoms — severe headaches, dizziness, confusion, nausea or faintness. If you think you are experiencing symptoms of CO poisoning get fresh air immediately and call 911 for emergency assistance. A build up of carbon monoxide will present symptoms similar to the flu. A key clue is that your skin will have a reddish hue. This is caused by the CO displacing the oxygen in your blood stream. Your blood gets darker and is reflected in skin color. Remember that at anytime you suspect a fire or you need our help for any emergency do not hesitate to call 911. Do not call the landlord, the furnace repair person, your friends or family – call the fire department. It is extremely important that we be notified as soon as possible of any emergency so that we can effectively deal with it. Time is probably the most critical element in an emergency response.

To the editor, Next week the New Hampshire Senate will decide the fate of H.B. 648 concerning private property rights. Passed overwhelmingly by the House last year, H.B. 648 is now up for vote in the Senate. PSNH claims it should have the right to take a citizen’s property by eminent domain if a power project is deemed “beneficial” to the state. Opponents state that argument is not valid due to New Hampshire Constitutional Amendment 12-a, which says no corporation can take a person’s land for a private development project
no matter what perceived “benefits” are claimed. If a senator votes otherwise, he/she is saying the N.H. Constitution can simply be ignored when it is deemed beneficial. Our N.H.

To the editor, Imagine my surprise when I received a phone call from a lady who was displeased that I disagree with James Veverka in the paper. It was a brief talk until I hung up. Now, readers should realize that I am not an elected official. I’m not run-

able to get $4,000 for the coins. Officers also said when they spoke with Weeks she told them she gave the Verrill’s a ride to the house but didn’t know they were going to commit burglary. McNeel, Randy Verrill and Weeks were arrested in late December and it was during a telephone call Randy Verrill made from the Belknap County Jail to his father and brother that allegedly admitted he’d be in trouble if “the girls” talk to the police. Both Chad and Randy Verrill implicate themselves in the burglary, said the police, and during the phone call the two were trying to get their stories straight. During the call, police said Chad Verrill, who at not been arrested at the time of the, told his brother to “keep his mouth shut,” that Randy “already knows what we need to do,” and if they are arrested they will say they watched McNeel and Parra steal the coins. Police also said chad Verrill threatened to “go out with a bang” if the police came to arrest him and that “one of those (deleted) will be getting punched in the face.” Chad Verrill was arrested yesterday, apparently without incident, and as of last night was in Belknap County Jail being held on $10,000 cash bail. A person at the Belknap County Jail said yesterday both Verrills and Weeks, who is facing one count felony criminal liability for another are incarcerated.
WEB from page 2 ment said that Kim Dotcom, 37, and three other employees were arrested Thursday in New Zealand at the request of U.S. officials. Three other defendants are at large. Before Megaupload was taken down, it posted a statement saying allegations that it facilitated massive breaches of copyright laws were “grotesquely overblown.” “The fact is that the vast majority of Mega’s Internet traffic is legitimate, and we are here to stay. If the content industry would like to take advantage of our popularity, we are happy to enter into a dialogue. We have some good ideas. Please get in touch,” the
statement said. The indictment may have prompted a response from the loose affiliation of hackers known as “Anonymous,” which claimed credit for attacking the Justice Department’s website. The site was inaccessible Thursday evening. “The Department of Justice web server hosting justice.gov is currently experiencing a significant increase in activity, resulting in a degradation in service,” the agency said in a statement. “The Department is working to ensure the website is available while we investigate the origins of this activity, which is being treated as a malicious act until we can fully identify the root cause of the disruption.”

Police said Perra said McNeel spoke of the safe quite often and wondered what it contained. Perra told police she overheard McNeel talking on a cell phone about the safe to Chad Verrill on the day of the burglary. She said she left the victim’s house and was in the driveway when she saw Weeks and the two Verrill brothers walk up toward the house. McNeel allegedly let the three into the victim’s house through the sliding glass door, later alleging telling police she left the sliding glass door open because she knew they were going to get into the residence and she didn’t want the sliding door broken. She also told police the two Verrills were carrying a crowbar and were wearing Latex gloves. Police say the two men were able to pry open one side of the two door safe and stole ten 10-ounce silver bars, 120 1-ounce U.S. silver dollars and 20 President John F. Kennedy silver half dollars. When he returned home, the homeowner noticed the safe had been moved and pried opened and he called police. He estimated his loss to be about $8,000 as silver was selling for $36 per ounce.

4 area municipalities express opposition to Tilton’s bill to give Laconia more say over regional sewer system matters; city pays 50% of costs but has only 10% vote By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
CONCORD — Nearly half the nine towns, which together with Laconia are members of the Winnipesaukee River Basin (sewer) Program (WRBP) opposed a bill that would lend the city a predominant role on the advisory board by weighting the votes of the 10 municipalities when it was heard by the House Public Works and Highways Committee yesterday. House Bill 1130, sponsored by Rep. Frank Tilton (R-Laconia) 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. The Laconia City Council endorsed the bill, but Belmont wrote to the committee expressing its opposition and representatives of Meredith, Gilford and Franklin were on hand to speak against it. The WRBP, established in 1972, 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. Tilton told the committee that because costs are allocated according to the number of connections and volume of usage, Laconia pays 50-percent of operating and 40-percent of capital expenditures. Moreover, he said that since approximately 94-percent of the residences and businesses in the city are connected to the municipal sewer system future growth of the WRBP requiring capital expenditures will occur in the nine towns that bear relatively smaller shares of costs. “The bill actually eliminates a weighted vote,” Tilton claimed, explaining that with a fraction of the connections and population of Laconia, Center Harbor wields equal voting power on the Advisory Board. Tilton, who chaired the boards during his tenure as Laconia’s director of public works, said that until recently there was no need to weight the voting because the members always reached consensus. The dispute over the construction of an ultra-violet disinfection system at the Franklin treatment plant in the last two years, he called “a very contentious item” that prompted him to file the bill. Without weighted voting, he said, “the smaller communities could band together and tell larger communities how to spend their money.” Representative Gene Chandler (R-Bartlett), who chairs the committee, asked why, since preparation of the WRBP’s operating and capital budgets rested with the DES and the Legislature and the Advisory Board had no authority over either, the issue was important. Tilton replied that the DES has never

ignored the advice of the board. Phil Warren, Meredith town manager, acknowledged that the DES has worked with the communities, but said that during the past year the board has been working with the agency to formalize their relationship. At the same time, the DES and the board commissioned Camp, Dresser & McKee, Inc. to undertake a study that would collect information on usage that would enable the WRBP to refine its billing process, which in turn could support changes to a reallocation of voting power on the board. By distributing votes by population, Warren said, “one community will basically run the show.” “Referring to the discussions between the board and the DES, Scott Dunn, Gilford town administrator, said that Tilton’s bill “puts the cart before the horse.” He urged the committee to kill the bill so that the process of restructuring the WRBP could proceed to a conclusion. Franklin City Manager Elizabeth Dragon also said that “the bill circumvents the process,” stressing that the members have worked well together.” Anticipating that the restructuring could require legislation, she asked “wouldn’t it be better if we came back to you with a consensus?” Dragon indicated that the position of Laconia must be recognized, but said that would most likely involve a number of factors “not just population.” Harry Stewart, director of the Water Division at the DES, said that the agency took no position on the bill. However, he said that the DES had entered a memorandum of understanding with the Advisory Board that grants the board authority to “adopt procedures” and “establish a more formal structure.”

REAL ESTATE TAX ABATEMENT DEADLINE MARCH 1, 2012 As you may have read in recent business and economic reports, real estate tax assessments in many New Hampshire municipalities have not been reduced to reflect some very significant, if not drastic drops in current fair market values. Mass appraisal analyzes recent sales to construct a statistical model and standard methodology to predict selling prices, and not a fee appraisal assessing each single property. According to Stephan Hamilton, Director of the Property Appraisal Division of the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration “mass appraisal is not easy to do and not perfect. It is difficult to do at best, and especially with so few sales”. State statutes require that real estate tax assessments be based on current fair market values. It is recommended that you review your current tax assessment given current market conditions, as you may find that your property is assessed disproportionally higher than current market value. This office has successfully represented a number of property owners in central New Hampshire in recent years, whose tax assessments have been reduced, and in some cases, very substantially. Should you conclude after reviewing your current assessment that your property may be over-assessed, and wish to consider filing for a Real Estate Tax Abatement, please contact our office for further information as to the process involved, and the terms of our representation of your interest. Since the deadline for filing the Tax Abatement Application is Thursday, March 1, 2012, and lead time is necessary to perform an appraisal, it is important to TAKE ACTION NOW, if you wish to file a Tax Abatement Application by March 1, 2012.

NORTHERN PASS from page one that pretended to safeguard property owners but “but really enables utility companies to use eminent domain.” The Northern Pass project proposes to build 180 miles of power lines through the center of the state to bring hyrdo-generated electricity from Quebec for use in the United States. The plan has drawn strong support in Franklin, where a power conversion station would be located that would add perhaps $250-million to the city’s tax base, but determined opposition from hundreds of North Country property owners, conservationists and outdoor recreationists. Northern Pass is owned by Northeast Utilities (parent company of Public Service of New Hampshire), NSTAR and Hydro-Quebec. With 19 of the 31 towns in her Senate district in the path of either or both the preferred or the alternate route of the transmission lines, Forrester has been a staunch opponent of the Northern Pass project and an equally staunch champion of private property rights. She co-sponsored HB-648 in the Senate and immediately challenged Bradley’s attempt to amend it. Together with Senate President Peter Bragdon (R-Milford), Forrester countered with an amendment stipulating that “no public utility may petition for permission to take private land or property rights for the construction or operation of an electric generating plant or for any private development, including but not limited to participant·funded projects.” A “participant-funded” project is one, like Northern Pass, that is not funded by New Hampshire ratepayers. Bradley then introduced a fresh amendment prohibiting public utilities from seeking the power of eminent domain to build electric transmission
facilities unless the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) finds the project necessary to ensure the reliability of the transmission system or either lowers electric rates or provides environmental benefits. Meanwhile, when pressed at a committee hearing, Donald Pfundstein, a lobbyist representing Northern Pass, for the first time indicated that while the company did not intend to petition the PUC to use eminent domain, if it did, the state would have to determine if the project conferred a compelling public benefit. The revelation, together with Bradley’s amendments, aroused suspicions that Northern Pass was seeking to circumvent the constitutional protection of private property Yesterday Bradley introduced another amendment, adding Article 12-a to the statute governing eminent domain along with the statement “Therefore, no private development entity may petition the public utilities commission for the use of eminent domain.” Together with Pfundstein’s remark, some suggest that the amendment would allow Northern Pass to petition the PUC for designation as a “public utility,” which in turn would entitle the company to seek power of eminent domain from the same agency. However, Bradley yesterday insisted that “Northern Pass is not a public utility.” Bradley said that the Senate agrees that “private developers” cannot use eminent domain and also that “New Hampshire needs a reliable energy structure.” He said that he sought “to make sure the language serves both these goals.” Asked how his position differs from that of Forrester and Bragdon, he replied “I don’t have an answer for that.”
SKIER from page one accident on Dec. 31, 2009. Wool said Burke’s organs and tissues were donated, as she had requested before the accident. “The family expresses their heartfelt gratitude for the international outpouring of support they have received from all the people Sarah touched,” the statement said. A four-time Winter X Games champion, Burke will be remembered as much for the hardware she collected as the legacy she left for women in superpipe skiing, a sister sport to the more popular snowboarding brand that has turned Shaun White, Hannah Teter and others into stars. Aware of the big role the Olympics played in pushing the Whites of the world from the fringes into the mainstream, Burke lobbied to add superpipe skiing to the Winter Games program, noting that no new infrastructure would be needed. Her arguments won over Olympic officials and the discipline will debut at the Sochi Games in 2014, where Burke likely would have been a favorite for the gold medal. “Sarah, in many ways, defines the sport,” Peter Judge, the CEO of Canada’s freestyle team, said before her death. “She’s been involved since the very, very early days as one of the first people to bring skis into the pipe. She’s also been very dedicated
define herself by winning. For her, it’s been about making herself the best she can be rather than comparing herself to other people.” She was, Judge said, as committed to the grass roots of the sport — giving clinics to youngsters and working with up-and-coming competitors — as performing at the top levels. “She was a great, positive person for the whole team, the whole sport,” said David Mirota, the Canadian team’s high performance director. “She enlightens the room, and she’s great.” News of Burke’s death spread quickly through the action-sports world, where the Winter X Games are set to start next week in Aspen, Colo., without one of their biggest and most-beloved stars. “She’s probably one of the nicest people I’ve known in my life, and that’s about the only thing I have to say about it,” said American superpipe skier Simon Dumont, a multiple X Games medalist. Jeremy Forster, the program director for U.S. Freeskiing and U.S. Snowboarding, said freeskiers would remember Burke “first, as a friend, and then as a competitor who constantly inspired them to do greater things.” “She was a leader in her sport, and it’s a huge loss for the freeskiing community,” Forster said. “Shocked and saddened,” former freestyle Olympian Jeremy Bloom said on Twitter. “Sarah was a true

MARKET from page one The same was true Dan Nelson of Hobbitt Hill Farm in Wentworth, who quickly sold out all 80 pounds of his hydroponic tomatoes, as well as dozens of cucumbers that he brought to the market, “There’s a nice flow of people coming through here. I’m hoping I have a lot more ripe tomatoes ready the next time I’m here,’’ said Nelson. Dick Houle of Belmont said that he and his wife were enjoying their first visit to the farmer’s market and were impressed by the variety of food and produce being offered. “I guess everyone loves to eat local and they’re finding what they want here,’’ said Houle, who was carrying a large apple pie that he’d bought from one of the vendors. Organizer Joan O’Connor says that she can’t say enough good about the AutoServ dealership which is letting her use the 12,000-square-foot building through March as the site of the Tilton Winter Farmers’ Market. She started the Concord Winter Farmers’ Market two years ago but found out in July that she would

need to find a new location. So she drove on up from Henniker, where she runs Joan’s Famous Composting Worms, and talked with Dennis Gaudet, AutoServ owner, who had just purchased the property. ‘’He liked the idea and had Roland Gamelin, the AutoServ director of operations, work with me. I am so lucky to have this building and all the trust they put in a total stranger from Henniker and my visions for a market in Tilton. They have done a lot with their electronic bill-board, AutoServ newspaper inserts in December and January and preparing the building for this market in two months. They arranged the police detail, snowplowing, salting, sanding, and all the other things we needed to make this place work’’ says O’Connor. She has brought in many of the vendors she’s dealt with in past farmers’ markets as well as new vendors from the Lakes Region, like Huckins Farm of New Hampton with raw milk and fresh eggs, Woodshed Roasting Company of Laconia and Granite Ledge Coffee of Canterbury, Heart Song Farm of Gilmanton with its fresh goat cheese, Two Sisters Garlic of Canterbury with its unique garlic jellies, see next page

KODAK from page 2 ing, collecting and sharing images. “Kodak played a role in pretty much everyone’s life in the 20th century because it was the company we entrusted our most treasured possession to — our memories,” said Robert Burley, a photography professor at Ryerson University in Toronto. Its yellow boxes of film, point-and-shoot Brownie and Instamatic cameras, and those hand-sized prints that made it possible for countless millions to freeze-frame their world “were the products used to remember — and really define — what that entire century looked like,” Burley said. “One of the interesting parts of this bankruptcy story is everyone’s saddened by it,” he continued. “There’s a kind of emotional connection to Kodak for many people. You could find that name inside every American household and, in the last five years, it’s disappeared.” Kodak has notched just one profitable year since 2004. At the end of a four-year digital makeover during which it dynamited aged factories, chopped and changed businesses and eliminated tens of thousands of jobs, it closed 2007 on a high note with net income of $676 million. It soon ran smack into the recession — and its momentum reversed. Years of investor worries over whether Kodak might seek protection from its creditors intensified in September when it hired major restructuring law firm Jones Day as an adviser. Its stock, which topped $94 in 1997, slid below $1 a share for the first time and, by Jan. 6, hit an all-time closing low of 37 cents. Three board members recently resigned, and last week, the company announced that it realigned and simplified its business structure in an effort to cut costs, create shareholder value and accelerate its long-drawn-out digital transformation. The human toll reaches back to the 1980s, when Tokyo-based Fuji, an emerging archrival, began to eat into Kodak’s fat profits with novel offerings like single-use film cameras. Beset by excessive caution and strategic stumbles, Kodak was finally forced to cut costs. Its long slide had begun. Mass layoffs came every few years, unraveling a cozy relationship of company and community that was perhaps unequaled in the annals of American business. Kodak has sliced its global payroll to 18,800 from a peak of 145,300 in 1988, and its hometown rolls to 7,100 from 60,400 in 1982. Veteran employees who dodged the well-worn ax are not alone in fearing what comes next. Some 25,000 Kodak retirees in this medium-sized city on Lake Ontario’s southern shore worry that their diminished health coverage could be clawed back further, if not disappear, in bankruptcy court. from preceding page Miles Smith Farm of Loudon with its Scottish Highlander beef, Surowiec Farm with winter greens and apples, Rolling in the Dough of Tilton and Sweet Treat Greetings of Northfield, along with purveyors of locally grown pork products. O’Connor , who works for eight certified organic farms as a Community Supported Agriculture site manager, says that Winter Farmers’ markets are growing in popularity all over the country. ‘’They give people a chance to find things all under one roof which are grown right in their area and help farmers get through the winter,’’ she says. The market will be held from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. every Saturday, January through March. For a complete list of vendors visit www.tiltonwinterfarmersmarket.com.

Laconia police showed weapons 33 times in 2011 but no shots were fired; detail in year-end report given to commission By Gail OBer
LACONIA — City police reprimanded seven officers and fired one non-sworn civilian employee during 2011, command staff reported to the Police Commission yesterday. Six of the seven reprimands came following an internal affairs investigation and one led to the termination of an unsworn civilian employee for insubordination. Other internal affairs investigations resulted in two suspensions, one written reprimand and two oral reprimands. One report of mishandling evidence was determined to be unfounded. Police also monitor their own police codes of conducts and reported 42 violations of them to commissioners. Eight of the violations were for courtesy reasons, 12 were for unsatisfactory performance and four were driving violations. The remaining internal code includes violations of the department’s reporting for duty requirements and reports filed internally. One person was reprimanded for conduct unbecoming an officer. The year-end report is presented annual in January to Police Commissioners and also includes internal statistics police keep on uses of force and violations of their own code of conduct. Statistics show the department, which consists of 38 sworn police officers, reported 98 incidents of “use of force” but none of the reports of use of force generated internal affairs investigations. Use of force is different things to different police departments, but a Laconia officer is required to file a report every time he or she uses any kind of force,
including placing their hands on someone. Of the 98 uses of force reported in 2011, 38 involved uses of “open hands” while two involved use of a closed fist. Police showed their weapons 33 times but were never called upon to fire them. Officers also showed a Taser (electric stun gun) seven times and deployed them twice. City police also used pepper spray 11 times. Police also swore in two full-time officers bringing their total complement up to the recommended staffing levels of 38 full-time sworn police officers. In other business, Jason Tivey and Eric Adams (no relation to Chief Christopher Adams) were sworn in as full-time officers yesterday. Tivey will graduate from the N.H. Police Training and Standards this summer while Adams is a former police officer from Tilton who served for five years on the N.H. Drug Task Force. Eric Adams is the son of Northfield Police Chief Steve Adams. Police also reported to commissioners the department made 19 drug busts in 2011 — including one working in conjunction with the Gilford Police Department. During those arrests the seized 21 grams of cocaine, 52 grams of heroin, 115 oxycodone pills and small amounts of other drugs. In the course of the 19 arrests, police seized $2,700 in cash, two guns including one short-barrel shotgun and one Taser. There are 20 pending warrants for sales of controlled drugs, two for possession with intent to distribute drugs, and two for possession of narcotics. Police also busted three methamphetamine labs in Laconia and assisted in one meth bust in Belmont.
GOP from page 2 Under pressure from his rivals to release his income tax returns before the weekend — a demand first made by Perry in a debate on Monday — he told reporters it wouldn’t happen. “You’ll hear more about that. April,” he said. Gingrich grappled with problems of a different, possibly even more crippling sort in a state where more than half the Republican electorate is evangelical. In an interview scheduled to air on ABC News, Marianne Gingrich said her ex-husband had wanted an “open marriage” so he could have both a wife and a mistress. She said Gingrich conducted an affair with Callista Bistek — his current wife — “in my bedroom in our apartment in Washington” while she was elsewhere. “He was asking to have an open marriage and I refused. That is not a marriage,” she said in excerpts released by the network in advance of the program. Gingrich declined to respond to his ex-wife’s com-
ments, telling reporters his two daughters from the first of his three marriages had sent a letter to ABC “complaining about this as tawdry and inappropriate.” In fact, the letter made no such accusations. Instead, Kathy Lubbers and Jackie Cushman wrote ABC that anyone who has endured a failed marriage “understands it is a personal tragedy filled with regrets, and sometimes differing memories of events.” A short while later, R.C. Hammond, a spokesman for the former speaker, said of Gingrich’s ex-wife’s account: “It couldn’t be any more opposite of the truth.” The interview with the second of Gingrich’s two ex-wives and the evening debate weren’t the only political events in the run-up to the Saturday primary. Television commercials for the remaining candidates and their allies ran virtually without letup, generally designed to diminish each other’s support.

Union members swarm Statehouse protesting labor bills CONCORD (AP) — The state House is considering a series of bills that would lessen the power of unions through several measures, including repealing collective bargaining. The House Committee on Labor, Industrial and Rehabilitative Services held hearings Thursday on six bills in front of around 350 bill opponents, mainly public union members. The proposed measures also prohibit mandatory agency fees for non-union members, deducting dues from public employee paychecks and ban former public employees or union members from the state’s negotiating team. “This is where they to use a jack hammer to try to put in legislation that will chip away at the foundation of the New Hampshire advantage,” said Professional Fire Fighters of New Hampshire president, David Lang. Union members said the whole package of bills worries them, but the repeal of collective bargaining would be the most devastating. Unionized public sector employees currently negotiate their contracts with public employers through the union. Both union and non-union members receive the same contract at the end of the negotiations. Proponents of collective bargaining say this ensures fair wages in the absence of competition. Rep. George Lambert, R-Litchfield, presented his collective bargaining prohibition as providing an option. Employees could still choose union representation, but non-union employees would be free to negotiate on their own. “I find it offensive that I can be forced into a confrom preceding page of the state were watching an average of about six commercials a day paid for by Romney’s campaign and Restore Our Future, a group supporting him. Gingrich, Paul, Santorum and their backers raised the total higher. Santorum ran commercials likening Romney to Obama; Gingrich’s cast the former speaker as the only candidate who could defeat the president this fall. In a sign of the shifting campaign, Restore Our Future stopped attacking Santorum so it could concentrate its fire on Gingrich. Santorum, whose fortunes have ebbed since what appeared to be a narrow loss in Iowa, pronounced himself the winner there after all when state party officials in Des Moines announced he had finished 34 votes ahead of Romney instead of eight behind. “There have been two contests. We won one,” he said, and he proceeded to ridicule Romney and Gingrich as weak challengers to Obama. “How can you differentiate ourselves on the major issues of the day if we nominate tweedledum and tweedledee instead of someone who stood up and said, ‘No’?” he said to one audience, referring to his opposition to a requirement to purchase health care coverage.
tract that I didn’t sign and, potentially, was signed before I was ever born,” Lambert said. Lambert said public employees should be able to negotiate their own contracts based on their specific skills and abilities if they so desire. Union members say some bills target unions unfairly. One bill prohibits union dues being deducted from public employees’ paychecks but does not place restrictions on other deductions such as charities, health funds or housing and utilities payments. Two of the bills echo last session’s so-called rightto-work bill by prohibiting unions from collecting agency fees from non-union employees with one and prohibiting union representation of non-union employees with the other. Unions have already found the current Legislature to be hostile. The House passed a bill earlier in January to prohibit charging non-union members agency fees for contract negotiations, and the so-called right-to-work bill veto was sustained in November. Between hearings, bill opponents gathered on the State House steps in a PFFNH-organized rally. General President Harold Schaitberger told the crowd the bills were part of an organized, nation-wide attack on labor. Referencing the public response to anti-union laws in Wisconsin, Schaitberger told listeners they would fight the bills and win. “They’re looking for a quick victory,” Schaitberger said. “I’ll tell you what; we’ll see them at the ballot box.” Iowa Republican chairman Matt Strawn said the party would not name an official winner because the results were so close and some votes couldn’t be counted. Results from eight of the state’s 1,774 precincts were not certified to the state party by Wednesday’s 5 p.m. deadline. It was Strawn who had stepped before a microphone shortly before 2 a.m. in Des Moines on Jan. 4 to declare Romney the victor. That announcement propelled the former Massachusetts governor into New Hampshire, where he breezed to victory in the opening primary of the campaign a week later. He arrived in South Carolina the following day, front-runner then for sure, now more shakily so.

By Holiday Mathis chance for unnecessary problems. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Disable your call waiting for a while and do the equivalent in other areas of your life as well. Arrange things so that once you are really involved in an activity you are unlikely to be interrupted. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have strong instincts about money now. You’ll make a plan and follow through with it, and soon money will flow to you through new channels. You have a good use for it, too. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Just because you share the same bloodline with a person doesn’t mean that you have similar beliefs. Talks on the topic of religion or politics can lead to trouble among family members. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Certain promises have been made, and this is an excellent time to collect on favors, material items and money owed to you. You’ll only have to mention it once and wah-lah! PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll easily fall into the tendency to put too much pressure on yourself. Don’t require that you others like and admire you. Mix and mingle with the simple intention of having a good time. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 20). You’ll be a person of action right from the start of your new year, and you’ll approach your endeavors with great energy and speed. Regular contact with loved ones will be the key to building relationships over the next three months. Travel and adventure in May will introduce you to new business. Money will be more plentiful in July. Aries and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 1, 22, 48 and 17.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Just because it’s the way you’ve always been doing it doesn’t mean it’s the way you have to do it today. Nothing is written in stone. Agreements are broken every day. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If it’s not going right, you’ll recognize the problem and take action to reverse the trend. Take care not to say “maybe” when what you really mean is “no way.” GEMINI (May 21-June 21). No matter how perceptive you are at judging people, you’ll make a mistake or two along the way. You won’t be sorry if you err on the side of belief. No one will ever fool you twice though. CANCER (June 22-July 22). The Latin expression (SET ITAL) quid pro quo (END ITAL) means “something for something.” You’ll get the feeling that someone is doing a favor for you because they expect one immediately from you in return. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll enjoy home decorating and arranging your domestic scene in a way that is pleasing to you and anyone lucky enough to come into your world. You are naturally good at creating an open, friendly environment. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll learn form others as you have conversations that bounce more or less equally from person to person. The one who drones on and doesn’t lob the conversational ball back is not being open to learning LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The question of whether to add a new gadget to your scene will come up.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, Jan. 20, the 20th day of 2012 with 346 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: In 1265, Britain’s House of Commons, which became a model for parliamentary bodies, met for the first time. On this date: In 1783, U.S. and British representatives signed a preliminary “Cessation of Hostilities,” which ended the fighting in the Revolutionary War. In 1892, the first officially recognized basketball game was played at the YMCA gym in Springfield, Mass. In 1936, Edward VIII becomes king of the United Kingdom. In 1945, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the only president to be elected to four terms in office, was inaugurated to his final term. He died three months later and was succeeded by Harry Truman. In 1961, John Fitzgerald Kennedy began his presidency with inauguration ceremonies on the newly renovated east front of the Capitol. In 1981, Ronald Reagan was inaugurated as the 40th president of the United States. That same day, 52 American hostages were released by Iran after 444 days in captivity. In 1990, at least 62 civilians were killed and more than 200 wounded when the Soviet army stormed into Baku to end what Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev called fratricidal killing between Muslim Azerbaijanis and Christian Armenians. Also in 1993, Oscar-winning actress Audrey Hepburn died of cancer at her home in Switzerland. She was 63. In 1995, a strike-shortened National Hockey League season opened with teams playing a 48-game schedule instead of the usual 84. In 1996, Yasser Arafat was elected president of the Palestinian Authority with 88 percent of the vote. In 2001, George W. Bush was inaugurated as the 43rd president of the United States. Just hours before leaving office, U.S. President Bill Clinton issued 176 pardons -- a number of them controversial. In 2003, Britain said it was sending 26,000 troops to the Persian Gulf for possible deployment to Iraq but France said it wouldn’t support a U.N. resolution for military action. In 2007, U.S. Sen.

Tavern 27 at Mystic Meadows snowshoe league meeting on Wednesdays
LACONIA — With snowshoeing becoming one of the fastest growing winter sports in the northeast, the staff at Mystic Meadows in conjunction with Tavern 27 has planned a unique and fun filled weekly Snowshoe League and a Guided Snowshoe Walk. The events will take place on a well groomed trail at the par 3 golf course, Jade Trace. The trail is a pulseraising roller coast of ups, downs and hair-pin turns, but also offers a simple loop for the less experienced. The weekly Wednesday evening Snowshoe League will feature relay races, obstacle courses, snowshoe kick ball and volleyball. Points are awarded
for attendance and how players place in the evening’s event. At the end of the season, prizes will be awarded for players with the most accumulated points at an awards banquet held at the Tavern. Teams and League games will change each week and will consist of two or more players depending on the game. Happy hour is from 4-6 p.m. and teams will then be drawn or chosen and the games will follow. Cost of the league is $9 per person each week. All league fees will go to the end of the year banquet and awards. Upon paying league dues, league members will receive a $10 voucher for Tavern 27 which must

TOWN OF ASHLAND REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL Project Description: The Town of Ashland, NH is requesting proposals from qualified structural engineering firms to examine and report on the condition of the Ashland Fire Station roof located at 9 Main Street, Ashland , NH. General Information: The Fire Station has individual roof sections over the Office, the Hose Tower, the Radio Room and the Garage which houses the equipment. All the roof sections consist of a metal deck with a light weight fill and a smooth built up roof which was installed around 1976. In 1987 the Office roof received a layer of .5 inch thick fiberboard and the Garage received a layer of 3 inch thick expanded polystyrene (EPS) over the existing roofing. A ballasted Carlisle roof system was then installed. Currently the office roof insulation is 100% saturated with water and there are active roof leaks during the winter months which would lead to the conclusion that the EPS is wet in some if not most of the roof system. The Garage section appears to have sagged in the center causing additional ponding of water. Scope of Work: The Town is looking for the cost of a written report on 1) the existing condition of the roof, 2) options in saving the current roof, 3) estimated cost of all proposed repair options and 4) clear solutions to the problem which may entail a new roof. Site Inspection: The Fire Station may be inspected by appointment Monday through Friday between the hours of 9 am and 4 pm by contacting the Town Administrator, Paul Branscombe at (603) 968-4432. Proposal Deadline: The Ashland Town Administrator will accept written proposals at the Town Office until 4 pm on Friday February 3rd, located at 20 Highland Street, Ashland. Mailing address: PO Box 517, Ashland, NH 03217. Proposal Award: The proposals received will be reviewed and discussed at the regular meeting of the Ashland Board of Selectmen to be held on Monday February 6, 2012 in the Elementary School Library, 16 Education Drive at 7 pm. The Ashland Board of Selectmen reserves the right to reject any or all proposals for any reason.
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, January 20, 2012— Page 19
Dear Annie: My husband and I are in our early 50s. We have been married for one year and have not been intimate for six months. Until he transferred to a second-shift job, our bedroom was exciting. Now I’m not allowed to touch him. Anything more than a hug and he pushes me away. I miss how we once were. He says he hasn’t been feeling well but refuses to see a doctor or a counselor. If he’s not willing to discuss this further, it’s hard to know what to do or think. I love him dearly, and he tells me he loves me, too, but with all these mixed signals, I’m not so sure. Any ideas? -- Boston Beauty Dear Boston: It’s possible the job switch is exhausting him, or there could be something at work that is making him unwell. Or he could have met someone else on his new shift. There are other possibilities, but if he refuses to see a doctor or a counselor, it means he prefers to leave things as they are, and this is unacceptable. Please see a counselor on your own and figure out your next step. Dear Annie: We became close to one set of neighbors over the years. Their 17-year-old daughter often baby-sat our two children, ages 9 and 11. Six months ago, we attended a social event together while their daughter stayed with our kids and one of their friends, who was sleeping over. At some point, the sitter walked the kids to her parents’ house, took their car (she had just gotten her driver’s license) and drove them to a local ice cream store where her friends were working. She told the kids not to tell their parents. Three days later, our 9-year-old accidentally spilled the beans. I called the sitter and fired her, and then I told her mother what had happened. Her only response was, “Well, it wasn’t illegal.” We haven’t spoken since. Two weeks ago, I texted the sitter and told her to call me
so we could fix this mess already. I hoped she would apologize to my wife, even though she has not admitted she did anything wrong. Instead, her mother texted me back and told me to leave her daughter alone. She then reminded me that I never paid the girl for sitting that night. I am still in absolute shock. Any advice? -- Upstate N.Y. Dad Dear Dad: This girl showed terrible judgment, but that is not unusual for a 17-year-old. She should have apologized immediately for putting your children at risk and doing something without your permission. You should have forgiven her, with the understanding that it would not happen again. It would have been better if her mother had not become involved, although we suspect the sitter was in tears after being fired and Mom thought she was protecting her. To resolve this, please walk over to the neighbors’ house and pay the girl the money you owe her in person. Then, gently and kindly, explain that her behavior that evening alarmed you and made you question how responsible she is. Give her the opportunity to apologize. We hope she will. Dear Annie: Like “Road Worrier,” I was unable to get my mother, who was legally blind with macular degeneration, to give up driving. She always said a prayer before getting behind the wheel. Living in different states made it difficult, so I spoke with an attorney, who told Mom that either she gets rid of the car or I would ask for legal guardianship and make ALL her future choices. She was furious but knew I meant business. The car was gone within a week. Her anger didn’t last long, but I was willing to risk a permanent estrangement. It would have been worth saving the life of someone’s child whom she eventually would have killed. -- Did What Needed To Be Done

Busiel Community Room and Gallery features ‘Through Cherrie’s Eyes’
LACONIA — The Busiel Mill in downtown Laconia is featuring an exhibit of photographs taken by Cherrie Durgin of Sanbornton. Titled “Through Cherrie’s Eyes”, the exhibit includes images of birds and blooms found mostly in her backyard. Durgin’s yard even was visited by a Cooper’s Hawk during one of sev-
eral snow storms last February and March. Durgin says at first she was excited to see him sitting on one of her feeder poles, but her bird feeding station was not only serving seeds to her songbirds but on occasion was offering a meal to their predators. She was very happy to see the hawk leave the vicinity.
MOULTONBOROUGH — The Lakes Region Tea Party’s monthly meeting will be held on Wednesday, January 25 at 7 p.m. at the Moultonborough Public Library. The subject for the evening, (which has generated considerable interest among members) is “Local School Problems—Let’s
Return to the Basics.” Leading up to the 2012 November election there will be a straw poll at every meeting, reflecting the current mood of the voters. In addition, attendees are encouraged to discuss any political issue that is of interest to them. All interested people are welcome to attend.
Local Tea Party plans discussion on schools
Another unusual occurrence in her backyard was the arrival of a pair of blue birds in late October -- a pair soon became six blue birds, and they all roosted in the same bird house. Durgin said it was comical to see them come out of the bird house in the morning. She said she doesn’t think they were expecting all the snow we had. The bluebirds left her area on November 2, certainly looking for warmer and better hunting grounds. Her exhibit is on display at the Community Room downstairs at the Busiel Mill. The Busiel Mill Community Room and Gallery is open to visitors from 9-5 p.m. on weekdays and other times by appointment. Artists interested in displaying their work in this gallery should contact Joe The Busiel Mill in downtown Laconia is featuring an exhibit of photographs taken by Cherrie Durgin of Sanbornton.

Free workshop on lowering energy prices February 1 in Sandwich SANDWICH — Several local energy committees and conservation organizations in conjunction with the University of New Hampshire will be providing residents with information and techniques to save money on home energy use through a free “Button Up NH” weatherization workshop at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, February 1, at the Benz Community Center, 18 Heard Road, in Center Sandwich. The Center Harbor Energy Committee, Sandwich Energy Committee, Tamworth Energy Committee, Plymouth Area Renewable Energy Initiative (PAREI), and Global Awareness Local Action (GALA) of Wolfeboro are all taking part in the workshop. Participants in the workshop, one of 20 being held around the state, will learn from a certified energy professional how to undertake basic air sealing, insulation, and conservation measures to reduce fuel and electricity use that will save money and make homes more comfortable throughout the year. Home heating prices are predicted to rise by another 10 percent this
coming heating season on top of previous spikes. “We’re looking at a substantial increase in what we have to spend to heat our homes this winter,” program coordinator Denise Blaha of UNH notes. “Fortunately, there are many ways to guard against fuel price increases, which the Button Up NH workshops will cover in detail.” Workshop topics will include: common sources of energy waste in homes, easy do-it-yourself steps to save energy, how-to air seal, when to bring in an energy efficiency professional, and where to find technical and financial resources to make more substantial improvements. In addition to the workshop, residents will be able to receive personalized assistance to energy related questions and get guidance through the process of implementing an energy reduction project, such as air sealing an attic or basement or implementing a solar hot water or electric system.
