Gilmanton has daytime burglary woes of its own GILMANTON — Police Chief Phil O’Brien said there have been six unsolved burglaries in town in the past two weeks, adding his community to Alton and Belmont as towns that have seen a recent spate of home break-ins. O’Brien said the majority of Gilmanton burglaries occurred in the Iron Wroks section of town and all of them have similar characteristics. While he released few details, he said in each case, the burglar(s) were able see G’TON page 11

DNA links Noucas to mask found at Meredith crime scene By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — A forensic scientist yesterday testified that DNA taken from a ski mask and latex glove found in the bedroom of the Meredith duplex where Robert Hart died in the course of an armed robbery matches that of his alleged accomplice Michael Noucas.

Noucas, 27, formerly of 5 Stevens Avenue, Meredith is being tried in Belknap County Superior Court for conspiracy to commit armed robbery, accomplice to armed robbery and burglary. The prosecution alleges that on June 6, 2010 he and Hart, wielding a kitchen knife and a baseball bat and wearing masks and gloves, entered

a 3-story duplex at 16 Lake Street in Meredith intending to rob David Rivera of Brockton, Massachusetts of cash and drugs. But, when Rivera struck back the two found themselves fighting for their lives. Hart was beaten and stabbed to death while Noucas escaped with a slit throat, slashed ear and cut head.

Rivera was granted immunity from prosecution but ordered to testify. He insisted that despite killing one man and maiming another he remembered absolutely nothing. Without a witness to the mayhem, the state has only the testimony of Julie Sallies, Hart’s fiancee who is serving a prison sentence after see dNa page 10

Florida man confesses he’s been hacking e-mail of celebrities

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — A Florida man has acknowledged in a TV interview that he hacked into the email accounts of actress Scarlett Johansson and other celebrities and downloaded their private information. Christopher Chaney told Jacksonville’s WTEV (http://bit.ly/ qreD1U ) that he plans to plead guilty after he heads to Los Angeles to face charges. He is scheduled to appear in a Jacksonville federal court Friday awaiting transfer to California. In a story broadcast Thursday, the 35-yearold Chaney said he began celebrity hacking out of curiosity and it quickly became addictive. Authorities say celebrity hacking led to nude photos of Johansson and other information appearing online though Chaney told WTEV he never sold any of the pictures or information he found. He said he wanted to apologize to the celebrities for invading their privacy.

Showdown looms between Wall Street protestors & cops NEW YORK (AP) — New York City officials ordered Wall Street protesters to clear out their sleeping bags and tarps, setting the stage for a showdown Friday between police and demonstrators who vowed to do all they could to stay put. The owner of the private park where the demonstrators have camped out for nearly a month said it has become trashed and unsanitary. Brookfield Properties planned to begin a section-by-section power-washing of Zuccotti Park at 7 a.m. “They’re going to use the cleanup to get us out of here,” said Justin Wedes, 25, a part-time public high school science teacher from Brooklyn. “It’s a de facto eviction notice.” The demand that protesters clear out sets up a turning point in a movement

that began Sept. 17 with a small group of activists and has swelled to include several thousand people at times, from many walks of life. Their demands are amorphous but they are united in blaming Wall Street and corporate interests for the economic pain they say all but the wealthiest Americans have endured since the financial meltdown. There was a frantic scramble of activity in the park Thursday. Hundreds of demonstrators scrubbed benches and mopped the park’s stone flooring in a last-ditch attempt to get Brookfield to abandon its plan. A last-ditch protest was planned at midnight. Protesters would be allowed to return after the cleaning, which was expected to take 12 hours, but Brookfield said it plans

to start enforcing regulations that have been ignored. No more tarps, no more sleeping bags, no more storing personal property on the ground. In other words, no more camping out for the Occupy Wall Street protesters, who have been living at Zuccotti Park for weeks and triggered a movement against unequal distribution of wealth that has inspired similar demonstrations across the country and forced politicians in both parties to take notice. Protesters say they only way they will leave is by force. Organizers sent out a mass email asking supporters to “defend the occupation from eviction.” “We are doubling up on our determination to stay here as a result of this,” said see WALL STREET page 12

SEAL BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Scott Dekraai’s neighbors considered him one of the friendliest guys on the block, a man who invited them over for pool parties and played catch with his son in his yard. Friends of his ex-wife, though, say she lived in fear of the man now accused of gunning down her and seven other people at the hair salon where she worked. He suffered post-traumatic stress disorder from a 2007 tugboat accident that mangled his leg and left a colleague dead. His marriage to Michelle Fournier was

falling apart even before that, and the court battle over their 7-year-old son was still raging Wednesday, when Dekraai is accused of spraying the Salon Meritage with gunfire. Fournier’s boyfriend, Michael Warzybok, said at a court hearing Tuesday the judge had pressed Dekraai to explain why he needed more time with his son than the current arrangement called for. Warzybok said a court-appointed psychologist had found the current, roughly 50-50, arrangement was working.

“All of a sudden, he didn’t get his way,” said Warzybok, who was interviewed by the psychologist along with Fournier’s coworkers. He added that Dekraai had offered to meet Fournier for coffee Wednesday, the day of the shootings, but she turned him down. Fournier had indicated to friends and in court documents that she was afraid of her ex-husband. Her friend Sharyn White said that just weeks before the killings, she told her that Dekraai had stopped by the salon see SHOOTINGS page 12

Report finds there’s dearth Attorney General reports young Concord wife’s of programs for female request for divorce triggered murder-suicide and loving and angry and abusive. A week before CONCORD (AP) — The man who shot his wife to inmates in New Hampshire death the shooting, one friend told investigators, Sarah in front of her two young daughters over the

CONCORD (AP) — A New Hampshire civil rights advisory committee says the state’s female prisoners are deprived of programs and facilities afforded their male counterparts. The committee’s two-year study concludes that the approximately 130 women housed in a converted county jail in Goffstown live in cramped quarters and have limited training and recreation opportunities. Corrections Department spokesman Jeffrey Lyons says there are disparities and the department unsuccessfully sought funds during the past three budget cycles to build a women’s prison. Lyons said the department has improved mental health treatment and educational opportunities for female inmates in recent years. The committee’s findings mirror those in a similar study in 2004. Lyons said his department since the 2004 report has hired full-time mental health providers for female prisoners and opened a halfway house exclusively for women. The women are incarcerated in the former Hillsborough County House of Corrections, which the state leases from the county. The summary of the advisory report describes it as a “cramped, antiquated and ill-equipped” facility. Lyons doesn’t disagree. “We are limited to the confines of a small, outdated facility that was converted into a prison from a closed county jail with very little programming space,” Lyons said. “It is past time for the state to take immediate steps to close the Goffstown prison and provide a facility that eliminates the inexcusable disparities that exist between the treatment of men and women in the state’s correctional system,” said Jordan Budd, who chairs the advisory committee. Male prisoners are incarcerated at the New Hampshire State Prison for Men in Concord and the Northern New Hampshire Correctional Facility in Berlin. Committee members toured prison facilities and interviewed prisoners and correctional officers during the course of their study. The full report by the Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights will be released Monday.

Man struck by Amtrak train in Dover dies

DOVER (AP) — A 50-year-old New Hampshire man who was struck by an Amtrak Downeaster train in Dover has died. Dover police Lt. Brant Dolleman says the southbound train tried to stop but couldn’t before striking the man just north of the Washington Street overpass at 2 p.m. Thursday. He says the Dover man was alive at the scene but died minutes after arriving at a hospital. Dolleman says it’s dangerous but not uncommon for pedestrians to use the tracks as a shortcut. Police and Amtrak officials are investigating the man’s death. The train makes five trips daily between Portland, Maine, and Boston. It was delayed in Dover for an hour.

Twenty-two-year-old Matthew Balch shot his 25-year-old wife, Sarah, in the driveway of their home June 14 and then killed himself. The final report found that Balch’s mother had tried to protect Sarah by driving a pick-up truck between the two but Matthew Balch, swearing and toting a rifle, walked behind the truck and shot his wife in the head. The five-page report paints a picture of a relationship in rapid decline and an abusive man threatening murder and suicide if his wife left him. In the weeks before the shootings, friends said their arguments became more heated. Investigators say their text messages vacillated between warm

After a weekend when his wife spent more time out with friends than home and told Balch she wanted a divorce, he tried to win her back, the report said. On June 13 — the day before the shootings — he sent his wife roses at work and cleaned up the house but she did not come home. He loaded Sarah’s fiveyear-old daughter from a previous relationship and their two-year-old daughter into his truck and drove around the city looking for her. Sarah Balch did not answer his many calls to her cellphone. He called his mother at 11 p.m. to see if she knew where Sarah was. Diane Balch told her son the children needed to be home in bed. He returned home and, after the girls were asleep, resumed his search for Sarah. He again called his see MURDER-SUICIDE page 9

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama said Thursday that officials at the “highest levels” of the Iranian government must be held accountable for a brazen and bizarre plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the United States on American soil, insisting leaders of the world will believe the U.S. case without dispute once they absorb the details. U.S. officials, meanwhile, confirmed the Obama administration has had direct contact with Iran over the allegations. The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, met with Iranian officials at Iran’s mission to the U.N. on Wednesday — a highly unusual contact for two countries that do not have diplomatic relations.

Obama would not say whether Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, or its president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, knew of the alleged plan. Yet he called it part of a pattern of “dangerous and reckless behavior” by the Iranian government and said people within that government were aware of a murder-for-hire plot. The U.S. considers it an attempted act of terrorism. “We believe that even if at the highest levels there was not detailed operational knowledge, there has to be accountability with respect to anybody in the Iranian government engaging in this kind of activity,” Obama said in a news conference tied to the see IRAN PLOT page 6

Once again, the game is rigged And then there were 12. When the 435 House members and 100 senators failed in July to agree on a long-term deficit reduction plan, congressional leaders did what they often do when they don’t know what to do: They appointed a committee. But don’t sneer, for this is — cue the trumpets — a supercommittee! Made up of only a dozen lawmakers and perfectly balanced between Repubs and Dems, this panel is to find about $1.5 trillion in spending cuts and new revenues to shrink the federal deficit. They are to come to an agreement by Thanksgiving — how’s that for a symbolic deadline? The theory is that the group will be small enough to work together across partisan lines for the good of the country, independent of the competing budgetary needs of various groups and the demands of special interests. The problem with theories, however, is that reality has a way of intruding on their perfection. In this case, the intrusion is literal. The 12 solons will not be sitting at the table alone, for such names as AT&T, BlueCross/BlueShield, Citigroup and GE have been escorted inside by the members. They’ll not go in physically — but monetarily. For they are among the top donors of campaign cash to the 12 budgeteers, giving them an advantage over us plain citizens. For example, Wall Streeters have invested $17-million in the campaigns of the supercommittee’s six Republicans and $15-million in the six Democrats. That pile of political money will be a screaming presence in the negotiating room, for members will be thinking about their need to get more of it for the next election and will not want to offend donors. By the way, one of the first decisions reached by the committee members was that they would allow themselves to continue collecting campaign donations while they decide whose programs and subsidies get cut — and whose don’t. How do you think that’ll work out? Turkeys are not the only endangered species this Thanksgiving! This is one congressional committee that’s likely to affect your life, for it’s going to decide such things as whether to whack your Social Security benefits or cut back on Big Oil’s $4-billion-a-year taxpayer subsidy. You might have an opinion about

which choice the supercommittee members should make, but can you reach any of the members personally and get a chance to bend their ear? No? Too bad, because Big Oil can. And it is. So are insurance giants, Wall Street bankers, military contractors and other corporate powers — not only because of their big-dollar campaign donations, but also because they have some very special lobbyists who’re on a first-name basis with the members. You see, these lobbyists used to work for the 12 lawmakers on the supercommittee. In all, 109 former congressional staffers have now been hired by various corporate interests to lobby their old bosses. General Electric, for example, has eight lobbyists on board who previously were on the staffs of supercommittee members. They include the head of GE’s Washington lobbying brigade, who had been the chief of staff for Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont. Indeed, Baucus’ Senate office seems to have been a training ground for influence-peddlers — 26 of his former aides are now lobbying him and the other 11 deficit whackers to protect the subsidies that oil, insurance and other corporations receive from us taxpayers. As one congressional watchdog dryly notes,” It’s not like (the 12 members) are in an idealized, platonic debating society.” Indeed not. Once again, the game is rigged for those with the money and connections to play inside. Of course, the hired guns deny any insider advantage. The former chief of staff to supercommittee member Dave Camp, R-Mich., for example, is hustling Big Pharma’s agenda, but he says flatly, “I make my case just like anyone else.” Oh, sure — anyone else who has a top staffer-turned-lobbyist working the system for them, which leaves out roughly 99-percent of us! And they wonder why Congress and corporate lobbyists rank below E. coli bacteria in public approval ratings. (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”.)

I will not vote to override governor’s veto of pay day loan bill To the editor, An open letter to N.H. House Leadership: “Pay day loans”, loans made under this bill, allow an interest rate of 25-percent per month. If the loan were allowed to run for a year, that would be 30o-percent in a year. The loaning companies testified that they wouldn’t allow a loan

to run for a year and they would collect on the loan before it were to get up to 300-percent, so technically, 300-percent would “never” occur. The 300-percent per year rate of interest under this bill is approximately 10 times the 36-percent per year interest rate that Household see next page

LETTERS We again have chance to make veterans’ issues number one To the editor, Batter up, with Republicans at the plate this time around. Let’s see which one is talking veterans’ issues. Let’s see which one is the veteran candidate in N.H. Do we have a so called “Maverick” that the media is selecting FOR the veteran community to stand by? At least the appearance of the veteran community standing by a certain candidate? Doesn’t matter if true or false. A picture says a thousand words. Just get a veteran or few to put on their organizational hat and stand beside the candidate for a photo op and there you have it . . . SOLD! Seems like every four years in N.H. the veteran community, or at least some, are more than willing to SELL for the opportunity for a photo op. We hear that a candidate made a visit to a local VFW or Legion and spoke about the “economy” or “education” or his/her “health care or jobs plan” but never a mention about veterans’ issues. Oh yes, ‘Thank you for your service” will be thrown in there someplace. We have the opportunity in our small, closely-knit state to get up close and personal with these candidates and make veterans’ issues take “First Place” and demand accountability but we let that most often slip away. Why would we allow these candidates to discuss any other issue than veteran related issues when they come to our posts ? Why not demand truth ? Why not expect faith and trust? Just relating to the four candidates we hear about most often (which will upset some but what the…): Romney, veteran candidate. . . really ? Had a call from friends in D.C. saying,” Bob, Perry is the one we “think” we will be going with in South Carolina this time”. . . really? Why? I have seen the Paul commercial with the two Viet brothers speaking of their time and feelings and how the congressman worked the get their medals. . . really? It was one of his aids, not him, as with all. They mentioned how bad they felt because of never being thanked. Well, sorry but we Vietnam vets here

in N.H. understand. Get over it and join with us and take care of business. More important things to do. “Never again can one generation of veterans leave another generation of veterans behind”. It happened! Read the congressman’s veterans’ stance. Sounds good and bad . . . can’t be elected. Shows some character and don’t we wish they all could? Then we have Herman Cain? Where does he stand on veterans’ issues? He’s “surging” in the polls. Hurry, somebody put a hat on and stand beside him! Point is, every four years veterans in N.H. have the opportunity to make veterans’ issues “Number One”! Why do we settle for second or third place? Why do we settle for, “Thank you for your service”. Sure, stand beside the candidate of your choice BUT take that hat off. . . don’t sell out ALL veterans so cheap! Not this time. Which one is the veterans’ candidate? We care about those who have served? Those who are serving? Those who will be serving? Which one will protect the VA budget when cuts are discussed? Which one will take care of those troops when they do come home? Is this NOT maybe the “veterans’ responsibility” to be asking these questions? Making the veteran platform part of any debate and platform? Well, is the veteran debate out there in view? No! This I can tell you, the veteran community will certainly have a finger ready to point at somebody if the need is there “after” it’s over and the need is not met. Which one do you as a veteran have faith and trust in ? Which one has courage? Which one can look you in the eye and tell you the truth? Take the opportunity and discuss the POW being held in Afghanistan. . . the American soldier. . . that American son we talk about. Ask the candidate if he is an American POW and worth the effort to bring home. You can put the hat on IF you ask that question. Bob Jones Meredith

If Democrats really believed lives were at stake they had options

from preceding page Finance and Beneficial Finance charge for unsecured loans. As it has been explained to me, if the person used the title of their automobile for the loan and they miss a payment or two then they lose their automobile. Greed and a lack of knowledge of things economic, seem to be the main features behind allowing interest rates of 25-percent a month. That for many years a majority of representatives have had limited feelings for the economic well-being of people can be illustrated that for the last 31 years or more, jurors (who must serve, or face incarceration in prison) have been severely underpaid. The current rate of pay of a juror is a pittance of $20 dollars for a half day of jury service. $20 a half day when the current poverty rate of income is $20 an hour! So, from this fact alone, it can be said that the majority of representatives who

If Democrats thought the spending cuts should have been made in other areas, they could have amended the bill, that is an everyday practice in Congress. They could negotiate with Republicans … you know, that thing that President Obama promised. Democrat Leader Pelosi was an advocate of “Pay As You Go”, that is all Republicans were trying to do. Does anyone really think that $1.5-billion could not be easily cut out of a $4.50-trillion budget? Such a thought is ridiculous. 4. Finally, it was discovered that the money was not needed, that there was already was enough money in the budget. One wonders if all President Obama’s agencies are run so poorly that they don’t know their financial status? Or, was this last minute request for unneeded funds just an attempt to squeeze more money out of Congress? Or, was this just a trumped up attempt to create an issue that Democrats could try to use to win a few extra votes from ignorant people? Liberal Democrat policies, all too often with Republican support, have put our country on the verge of fiscal disaster. Any attempt to rein in government spending to avoid that disaster results in being called names, heartless, uncaring, racist, greedy, etc. Americans can see the harsh consequences of overspending by looking at Greece, which is small enough to be “bailed out”. Unfortunately, the U.S. is too big to be bailed out. Current spending policies will result in a fiscal disaster. It is not a question of if disaster will result, only a question of when it will happen. When that disaster occurs, hundreds of millions of Americans will be harmed, many are likely to die. It is the people who are unwilling to get our fiscal house in order who are “heartless” and willing to let Americans die. The TEA Party demands that Congress examine every dollar of spending, prioritize and start making real spending cuts. In this case the cuts see next page

the past 31 years; a majority of representatives, despite their glib promises during an election campaign, have not had any real feelings for the economic well-being of people! (By the way I have entered a Bill, LSR 2012-H-2243, that is now in process and if adopted, that would increase the pay for jurors from $20 a half day, up to the poverty level of $20 an hour.) No representative who has any feelings at all for the economic well-being of people would ever agree to this “Pay Day Loan Bill” and neither will I. On this bill, I ask the House Leadership to not even bring it up for a veto over-ride vote. If it is brought up, I would vote against the majority and I would, unhappily, vote to support the governor’s veto.

To the editor, Apparently I can read better than Mr. Veverka can hear. In his October 6th letter, he adamantly assured us the term “TEA Party” did not exist in the Hightower article referenced by my letter. “TEA Party” can found near the beginning of paragraph 8. The focus of my letter was on the TEA Party, what it is and isn‘t, its criticisms of both parties and wasteful government operations, and its focus on principles, not political party. My letter was inspired by the Hightower column, the most recent (at the time) attempt to malign the TEA Party and its principles. Hightower’s article and Veverka’s letter are just partisan attack pieces. It is a common liberal technique to attack anyone who tries to stop or even slow the growth of government. Anyone who won’t cave to whatever liberals demand will be smeared. It doesn’t matter whether the program works, is worth the cost, is counterproductive, or is affordable. The result of that intimidation is today’s approximately $15-trillion in U.S. debt and $80-trillion in unfunded liabilities. These are debts which unborn children will have to pay; this is intergenerational theft and it is immoral. President Obama plans to grow our debt by about $1-trillion annually for the foreseeable future. Everyone agrees this is unsustainable, yet, anyone trying to reduce spending is called names, in this case they called indifferent to people’s suffering. Hightower and Veverka excoriate Republicans for attempting to find $1.5-billion in spending cuts to balance the requested additional funds for disaster relief. Consider: 1. If Democrats really felt that lives were at risk, why not agree to the cuts? The cuts identified by Republicans would not have jeopardized a single life. 2. President Obama rushed to make $2-million in loan guarantees before the end of September, these could have been cut. So, if Hightower and Veverka were right that lives were in jeopardy, then President Obama and the Senate Democrats were willing

LETTERS The two doctors mentioned by Mr. Wiles are considered quacks To the editor, There are good reasons why the right wing is referred to as anti-intellectual and anti-science and Mr. Wiles gives us another example. Adding to climate change deniers, creationists and those who “pray away the gay” we have today’s vaccine Luddites who ignore centuries of fatal illnesses that have been largely overcome by science. Don’t let these fearmongers fool you, vaccinations are largely safe and save lives. As with all drugs, there are some risks with vaccinations. And remember this, if you fall for this anti-immunization nonsense, you could become a carrier and infect dozens who may have weaker immune systems. Your gullibility could cause a severe illness to some senior citizen who also believed this nonsense. Mr. Wiles prescription is a prescription for death. In the professional community of scientists, with peer review articles submitted, Dr. William Campbell Douglas and Dr. Russell Blaylock, mentioned by Mr. Wiles, are considered quacks. Blaylock is a retired neurosurgeon who sells on his website — (are you ready for this) brain repair pills! Fifty bucks a wack! Snake oil! No kidding! Brain repair pills! You have to be kidding me! Mr. Wiles lists so-called facts but presents little sourcing. One of his so-called facts is that in 2002 there were 65,984 pneumonia deaths out of which only 753 were flu deaths. No source? No credibility, Russ. On the otherhand, the CDC has done extensive and corroborated research. One has to realize that pinning down flu deaths is a tricky business because of all the deaths due to secondary infections that gained entrance due to influenze virus so the CDC has a spread. It is still the flu that opened the door to death. A good page that answers many questions is from the CDC at http://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/ disease/us_flu-related_deaths.htm Mr. Wiles writes as if all flu are created equal. They are not. Some are much more deadly. Here are two excerpts from the CDC page: “The CDC estimates that from the 1976-1977 season to the 2006-2007 flu season, flu-associated deaths ranged from a low of about 3,000 to a high of about 49,000 people. Death certificate data and weekly influenza virus surveillance information was used to estimate how many flu-related deaths occurred among people whose underlying cause of death was listed as respiratory or circulatory disease on their death certificate.” “The 36,000 estimate was presented

in a 2003 study by CDC scientists published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), using similar statistical modeling techniques, but only refers to a period from 1990-91 through 1998-99. During those years, the number of estimated deaths ranged from 17,000 to 52,000, with an average of about 36,000. The JAMA study also looked at seasonal influenza-associated deaths over a 23 year period, from 1976-1977 and 19981999. During that period, estimates of respiratory and circulatory influenzaassociated deaths ranged from about 5,000 to about 52,000, with an average of about 25,000. While the 36,000 number is often cited, it’s important to note that during that decade, influenza A (H3N2) was the predominant virus during most of the seasons, and H3N2 influenza viruses are typically associated with higher death rates. CDC believes that the range of deaths over the past 31 years (~3,000 to ~49,000) is a more accurate representation of the unpredictability and variability of flu-associated deaths.” So you see, Mr. Wiles’ quacks and the CDC don’t see eye to eye. Then there is the so called authority he mentioned, National Vaccine Information Center. Sounds like an important outfit, eh? This is a virulent anti-vaccination propaganda organization. Mr. Wiles junk science is piled higher than an mammoth’s shoulders and I couldn’t find a big enough ladder but I will add one more thing. From Pediatrics, the official journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics at http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/ content/112/6/1394.full “We reviewed data on thimerosal, aluminum, gelatin, human serum albumin, formaldehyde, antibiotics, egg proteins, and yeast proteins. Both gelatin and egg proteins are contained in vaccines in quantities sufficient to induce rare instances of severe, immediate-type hypersensitivity reactions. However, quantities of mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde, human serum albumin, antibiotics, and yeast proteins in vaccines have not been found to be harmful in humans or experimental animals.” Let us take a lesson from history: Between 1918 and 1920 a world wide flu pandemic struck. Between 50 and 100 MILLION died. — 100,000,000. We had no flu vaccine at the time and it caught us by surprise, too. It wasn’t until 1945 we had the vaccination option. James Veverka Tilton

IRAN PLOT from page 3 state visit of South Korean President Lee Myung-bak.

Iran has vehemently denied anything to do with the alleged plot to kill the Saudi envoy to the United States, Adel Al-Jubeir, at a Washington restaurant. U.S. officials have described it as a remarkably clumsy but deadly serious operation by Iran’s elite foreign action unit, the Quds Force. Two men were charged in New York federal court Tuesday for allegedly trying to hire a purported Mexican drug cartel member to carry out the assassination with a bomb attack. Obama is seeking a vigorous response from around the world, on see next page

from preceding page proposed by the Republicans could easily have be made. If American lives were threatened by the attempt to balance this new spending with spending cuts, it was the Democrats, rejecting any slowdown in their rush to bring on our country’s fiscal disaster, who were being heartless and willing to let Americans die.

Common Man restaurant in Ashland sustains minor damage from early Thurs. morning fire ASHLAND — The Common Man restaurant sustained minor damage in the early morning hours on Thursday, after an apparent electrical fire broke out at the host stand. Common Man Chief Operating Officer Warren Dodge said the fire alarm sounded at the Ashland Fire Department around 3 a.m. and the restaurant’s sprinkler system quickly doused the flames. The host stand and a portion of the restaurant’s pantry near the main entrance were burned, but the majority of the 200-year-old building was spared. “The damage is not extensive but we do have smoke and water remnants to clean up,” said Dodge. He said while

staff works with the fire department, insurance company and cleaning crews, the restaurant will be closed to guests for the day. Updates about Common Man Ashland’s re-opening will be made on the restaurant’s Facebook page www.facebook.com/ thecommonmannh, Twitter account @ thecmannh and to local media. Dodge invited anyone who had planned to dine at the Ashland restaurant to visit other Common Man family locations in the area including Common Man Express Deli in Ashland, Foster’s Boiler room at The Common Man Inn & Spa in Plymouth and Italian Farmhouse in Plymouth.

from preceding page top of increased sanctions and pressure against Iran from the United States itself. U.S. diplomats have given their host governments information about the foiled plot. The U.S. criminal complaint says the Iranian plotters hired a would-be assassin in Mexico who was a paid informant for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and told U.S. authorities all about their plot. “We’ve laid the facts before them,” Obama said of world leaders. He said once they analyze them, “there will not be a dispute” over what happened. The State Department conceded

Thursday that the response from foreign governments was initially skeptical. “When you look at these details, it seems like something out of a movie,” said department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland. “And that’s always the first reaction. That was the first reaction when this effort was briefed to some senior folks in this government,” she said. “But as you begin to give more detail on what we knew and when we knew it and how we knew it, it has credibility.” At the United Nations, American allies said the U.S. evidence of an Iranian plot was convincing, but Russia and China reacted with caution.

uch is the magic that happens every day at New Hampshire Humane Society, a dog like Terrell, slated for death at a shelter down south, travelled to the granite state, where he could at least have a fighting chance for a loving home. In truth, he was a bit of a wild man back in June, when he arrived, but under the guidance and positive leadership of volunteers assigned to helping him overcome his quirks, young Terrell a Labrador mix, has blossomed into a wonderful, loyal canine companion. He loves to travel to places where he can spread cheer, lately area nursing homes where he greets the elders calmly, immediately flopping on his back for a tummy rub. He is a dog

that needs humans that can ensure he is included and provided with plenty of interaction and exercise. He may not be able to resist cats, and of course, would like to be the one true

canine in your home. Please visit Terrell during our October Adopt a Shelter Dog promotion… for more information call 603524-3252 or check www. nhhumane.org for details.

MEREDITH — Late last month, ground was broken on a $5-million construction project on the grounds of Church Landing at Mill Falls. The expansion will result in two new buildings which will address a surprising problem at the inn: not enough suites to meet demand. The expansion project will add a pair of lakeside, three-story buildings, which will contain a total of 13 new rooms ranging in size from 504 to 805-squarefeet and will cost guests $389 to $459 per night. Michelle Brown, director of marketing for the Inns & Spa at Mill Falls family of lodging establishments, said construction will continue through the winter and reservations are currently being accepted for July 2012.

In addition to the two new buildings, located on the shore of Lake Winnipesaukee immediately south of Church Landing, the project will include an indoor/ outdoor pool, a sundeck with food and drink service, new boat docks, and covered cedar walkways connecting the buildings. Ashland-based firm Samyn & D’Elia Architects designed the new structures and CCI Construction is the general contractor for the project. Brown said the finished product will continue with the Adirondack style featured throughout Church Landing. All of the lodging added by the two buildings – which will be known as the “Birch Lodge” and the “Boathouse Lodge” – will be in the form of suites, bringing the total number of suites at Church Landing to 27 and the total number of rooms in all four of the the Inns & Spa at Mill Falls properties to 172. Brown said the decision to add only suite-sized rooms was an attempt to better serve the tastes of Church Landing’s clientele. “Our higher-priced rooms and suites are what goes first,” Brown said. In planning the the construction, she said the company asked itself, “What rooms are we out of the most?” The occupancy statistics answer that question clearly. Overall, Brown reported, Church Landing has an average occupancy rate of 64 percent. However, the percentage of occupied rooms rises quickly when the more affordable rooms are removed from the equation. For example, the two large suites in Church Landing’s “Lakeshore Cottage” were almost completely booked from May through August of this year. To continue attracting well-heeled guests, the new suites will feature amenities such as lake views, indoor whirlpool baths, a wet bar, fireplaces, double glass and tile showers and LCD televisions in the bathrooms. The average length of stay at Mill Fall lodging is two nights, Brown said. Most guests from from southern New Hampshire or southern New England, some will come from states that border New England and a few others will come from as far afield as the United Kingdom. Despite the landmark buildings which the company has constructed, Brown said the hallmark of the Mill Falls experience remains service, and to that end additional staff has been added this year to improve the customer experience.

MURDER-SUICIDE from page 3 mother, who went to the house because she was concerned he left the children alone. Diane Balch called Sarah, who answered and told her she was “done” with Matthew, but also said she would return home. Diane Balch called her son to tell him Sarah was returning home. Once the two returned, a heated argument ensued, Diane Balch said. She said she left the home about 3 a.m. Sarah, she told investigators, seemed “cold and done” and Matthew was begging forgiveness. An hour later Matthew Balch called his mother and told her, “Mom, you better get over here or your grandchildren will wake up to two dead parents.” She says she told him to stop being so melodramatic and go to bed. At about 8 a.m. June 14, Diane Balch received a phone call from a sobbing Sarah Balch, who told her Matthew had thrown her against a sliding glass door and would not let her take a shower. Diane Balch told her she was coming over and to call the police. She arrived to find her son walking toward Sarah with the rifle. When driving her truck between them failed to halt her son’s advance, Diane Balch told investigators she tried to get out of the truck. Her son slammed the door shut on her leg and shot his wife once in the head. Diane rushed to Sarah’s daughters, who witnessed the shooting. The five-year-old was yelling, “Daddy, why did you shoot Mommy?” Diane Balch said. Matthew Balch returned to the house briefly, to hug his mother and 2-year-old daughter. He told his mother he loved her and that he was sorry, before walking outside and killing himself. from preceding page dedicated only to taking reservations. At its height of business this summer, the Inns & Spa at Mill Falls employed 120 people and will scale down to 100 this winter. The construction this winter is only the latest of projects which have transformed the aesthetics and economic vigor of Meredith village, beginning with the development of the Mill Falls Marketplace, which opened in 1984. The company now known as Inns & Spa at Mill Falls now operates four inns, the marketplace and a gas station in Meredith.

GILFORD — The Budget Committee last night approved the selectmen’s recommended Planning Department budget for 2012 of $249,076 — an amount down about 15-percent from this year. The budget provides for one full-time planning director, one full-time building inspector/code enforcement officer, a part-time planning assistant and a part-time secretary. Neither the planning assistant or the secretary position will come with benefits. The budget includes $8,200 for dues to the Lakes Region Planning Commission — a figure reduced by about $231 when the LRPC voted to reduce its own operating budget by about 5-percent. Selectman Gus Benavides, who is the Selectboard’s representative to the Budget Committee said his Board went through every department line by line but payed special attention to the Planning Department. With building permits and planning requests down and the economy showing no overt or immediate signs of recovery, Benavides said the decision to reduce the full-time planning assistant to parttime to compensate for the down workload was one of necessity. When Budget Committee member David “Skip” Murphy asked if it was possible to the reduce the department expenses even further by eliminating one of the part-time positions, Benavides explained that the Planning Department was never going to be self-sustaining nor is it designed to be. Committee member Kevin Leandro said he didn’t see the benefit of the planning department to the taxpayer and wondered why the department pays $87,000 annually for the position of Building Inspector/Code

Enforcement Officer especially during the winter when construction in New England typically wanes. Planning Director John Ayre said the building inspector also responds to complaints all year long. “Can we subcontract this out? Leandro asked. Benavides said the selectmen never had the discussion but that he wasn’t opposed to having it in the future. As to the due for the Lakes Region Planning Commission, Benavides said for the six years he’s been a selectman he’s weighed the costs against the benefits to Gilford about the LRPC and has always found the benefits to outweigh the costs. He said like all expenses, he wishes the town didn’t have this one but as a selectman he supports Gilford’s continued membership. Speaking on behalf of the LRPC, Kimon Koulet explained the program and said that by combining the 30 communities that comprise the LRPC, the agency is able to leverage each dollar it gets to get six additional dollars of programming money. As examples, he said that if Ayer calls him for a specific kind of planning map, it costs the town nothing. Law books and access to legal materials come at a reduced price. Koulet especially lauded the household waste collection program that alone could have cost the town $9,867 if it had done it alone. He said the hazard mitigation plan, mandated by state statute would have cost taxpayers $6,700 and the road surface inventory management study would have been an additional $4,000. “I think you heard the key words,” said Chair Dick Hickok. “State statute.” “We have a system that we have to live in and if we exit that system our chances of Gilford being hurt are greater than being helped,” he said. “We’re going to get hurt.” Murphy made the motion to reduce the department budget by the $8,200 and Leandro seconded it for discussion. The motion failed and Murphy and David Horvath Sr. were the only two who supported eliminating the LRPC line item. The overall planning budget passed as presented by selectmen by a 10-to-2 margin with Murphy and Leandro voting against. Dormody also gave a trial run at taping last night’s session for Lakes Region Public Access television. It should air sometime next week.

Police detail how investigation of Shore Drive Rx robbery tied to discovery of counterfeit bills BY MICHAEL KITCH LACONIA — Ryann Johnson, the local woman arrested this week on charges of possessing counterfeit currency and conspiracy to commit robbery, remains in Belknap County Jail in lieu of $20,000 cash bail following her arraignment in the 4th Circuit District Court yesterday. According to police, Johnson, 30, was party to a robbery in January, when two men were allegedly beaten by her two accomplices. After a lengthy investigation, a warrant was recently issued for Johnson’s arrest, but before she was taken into custody police learned that she might also be in possession of counterfeit currency and obtained a warrant to search her home. On January 16, police responded to an address on Shore Drive where they found the glass door to the home shattered, the window of a parked car smashed and the homeowner “disheveled” and flecked with blood. In an affidavit, Detective Chris Noyes reported that officers spoke with the homeowner and another victim who claimed that Johnson arrived with two men unknown to them wearing hooded sweatshirts. One man told police he was expecting Johnson to give him a ride, but instead was surprised when one of the men knocked him to the ground with a blow to the face. He said that when he tried to retreat to the house, the men, one of whom had a hatchet, broke through the locked door and attacked the homeowner. The homeowner said the men fled when he yelled that the police were on their way. In May, Noyes interviewed a person familiar with the incident who corroborated the statements of the victims and a month later spoke with Johnson about “a series of crimes that she had knowledge of and/or was involved in,” including the incident on Shore Drive. According to Noyes, she told him that

one of the victims “had ripped her off of some pills” and that when she learned he was at the Shore Drive address, one of her two accomplices suggested they go there and take the pills. Johnson, Noyes claimed, told him that she drove the two men to Shore Drive and watched from a distance as one punched another man in Ryann Johnson the driveway, then both broke (Laconia Police photo) into the house and smashed the car window. She said that three beers were taken from the refrigerator, but they had intended only to take the pills, not enter the house or damage property. Meanwhile, on Wednesday, police received information that Johnson had several hundred dollars worth of bogus bills in her home at 96 Summer Street. Soon afterwards, police arrested a man for theft on an outstanding warrant from the Tilton Police who was carrying two counterfeit $100 bills. According to police, the man said that Johnson gave him the bills to purchase pills. Later that same day a juvenile, subsequently identified as the son of Johnson’s sister who also lives at 96 Summer Street, gave another juvenile a counterfeit $100 bill, which he tried to pass at the Big Apple convenience store. When police searched Johnson’s home. they allegedly found two $100 bills and six $20 bills — all counterfeit — in her bedroom. According to police, Johnson is free on bail for arrests on charges of criminal threatening in September 2011 and two counts of forgery in June 2011. She was charged with forgery, theft and receiving stolen property by Concord police in March 2011. And she was twice convicted of theft in 2005.

Faith, a criminologist with the New Hampshire Department of Safety told the court that she tested one orange ski mask and one latex glove against the DNA profiles of Hart and Noucas. Earlier in the week officers of the New Hampshire State Police Major Crime Unit, who collected evidence at the scene and from Hart’s body, testified to finding three ski masks and five latex gloves. Two masks were found in the bedroom, one near Hart’s body and another in the doorway, and the third in the car belonging to Sallies. Hart was wearing two

gloves when he died, a third was found in the bedroom. The fourth glove was recovered near the Meredith Police Station, where Sallies left Noucas, who was bleeding profusely, and the last was discovered int he glove compartment of her car. Faith testified that she tested the mask found near the doorway, explaining that the other mask was too soaked with blood to obtain a reliable profile of the wearer. She said that she tested the DNA taken from around the opening for the mouth against the profiles of both Hart and Noucas. Although the DNA of two persons was detected, neither belonged to Hart and one of the two was predominant. “To a reasonable degree of scientific certainty, excluding identisee next page

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, October 14, 2011— Page 11

DOG FIGHT from page one she said Conkey refused to give her back the dog. Sharps said she called the Strafford Police who told her the issue was a civil matter but an officer said he would call the Conkey family and see if he could get them to give “Scrappy” back. His police reports indicates Conkey refused. On October 3, Sharps filed a petition in Superior Court asking for “Scrappy’s” return, saying she had all of the legal paperwork indicated the dog was hers. At 4:15 p.m. on that date, Judge James O’Neill ordered “Scrappy” temporarily returned to Sharps and a county sheriff was sent to the Conkey home to get the dog. In Conkey’s reply, she said her mother had contacted her about taking one of her aunt’s dogs because she had two and was trying to give one away because he kept going to the bathroom in the house. She said she and her family took “Scrappy” for the weekend and her 3-year old son rapidly became very attached to him. Conkey said “Scrappy” “fit in perfectly well” in their household and said she didn’t hear from Sharps until a few weeks later, when she called the family to see how things were going with the dog. Conkey said she told Sharps “Scrappy” was not going to the bathroom in the house and was getting lots of attention and exercise from her 12-year-old daughter and her son. She said the next day Sharps called her and said she could “keep ‘Scrappy’ forever.” Conkey informed the family and said they “cheered and hollered ‘Thank-you.’” Conkey said she requested the dog’s paperwork so she could arrange for veterinary service and to license “Scrappy” with the town of Strafford. The next day (Oct.3) , wrote Conkey, Sharps called and changed her mind, demanding the immediate return of “Scrappy”. That was the day Conkey filed her from preceding page cal twins,” Faith stated, “Michael Noucas is the wearer of the mask.” She said that she would have conduct 3.1 quintillion (1 quintillion = 10 to the 18th power) tests to obtain a similar match. In addition, Faith testified that the DNA recovered from the latex glove found in the bedroom also matched that of Noucas with an even greater degree of certainty. Cross examining Faith, defense attorney Andrew Winter questioned aspects of the testing procedure, but scored his most telling points on the limits of DNA evidence. Asked how Noucas’s DNA came to be on the mask and glove, she replied “it is his DNA and no one else’s. I know it is his DNA. But, how it got there,” she conceded, “I don’t know.” Likewise, Faith acknowledged that without laundering DNA would linger for months, even years, and agreed when Winter said “there is no telling when the DNA got on to the objects.” The trial resumes this

suit in Superior Court and O’Neill ruled temporarily that “Scrappy” would be returned to Sharps. In her reply Conkey said Sharps broke her promise to her and her family and, in the process, broke her 3-year-old son’s heart. She said she was so upset that she called her husband, Tate, to come home from work and part of her request to O’Neill is that he be reimbursed $840 for the two days of overtime he missed while trying to deal with the “Scrappy” crisis. In court Wednesday, O’Neill listened to both families restate their cases. “Was their any consideration given for the dog?” asked O’Neill of both Conkey and Sharps. Conkey said she called to get the papers and Sharps described “Scrappy” and pure-bread Maltese. Sharps told O’Neill that she didn’t give the Conkeys her dog and they never called her. She testified that “Scrappy” was dirty and “covered with fleas” when she got him back. Conkey denied the above and said Sharps told

Strafford Police Lt. Michael Richard she gave the dog to the Conkeys but changed her mind. Richard’s police report supports this and also states that he told Sharps she couldn’t give something to someone and then demand it back two weeks later. Tate Conkey told O’Neill that he felt it was unfair and wrong to give something, especially to a child, and then take it back. Sharps told O’Neill that she “had the right to change her mind.” O’Neill told both parties that he would reread their filings and hoped to issue an ruling before the week ended. After O’Neill retired to his chambers, Sharps had some terse words for her niece but a sheriff’s deputy was able to quickly defuse the situation. The American Kennel club describes the Maltese as a toy dog covered from head to foot with a mantle of long, silky, white hair.

GILMANTON from page one to enter the homes either through an unlocked door or window. In two cases, a hidden spare key was located and used for entry. He said all of the homes were occupied and their victims were away, typically at work for the day. Items taken are generally high-end jewelry and in some cases, poor quality or imitation jewelry was left behind. In one case, he said a new muzzle loader that had been disassembled for cleaning was left right where it’s owner had put it. He said the burglar(s) are neat, apparently orga-

nized, and leave little or no signs that they have been in the home. O’Brien is urging residents to lock their doors and windows while not at home and to not hide spare keys outside their homes. He also urged residents to lock their cars, even when they are parked in their driveways. He asks that residents be aware of any suspicious activity near their homes and to report it immediately to the Gilmanton Police at 267-7401 or to the Belknap County Sheriff’s Department at 527-5454. — Gail Ober

SHOOTINGS from page 2 and threatened to kill her and others there. White, who is also Dekraai’s step-aunt, said Fournier told her she took the threat seriously though others in the salon laughed it off. She said Fournier also had told her that when they were still married Dekraai had once held a gun to her head. There is no sign that Fournier sought a restraining order against her ex-husband, though other friends agree she was afraid. “As recently as a month ago, she told me how scared she was and I offered to hire her bodyguards,” said Tim Terbush, a longtime friend. He said she turned him down because she feared that would only make Dekraai more angry. Six women and two men were killed in the shooting in the quaint seaside town of Seal Beach, which had had only one homicide in the previous four years. A wounded woman was hospitalized in critical condition, although police Sgt. Steve Bowles said Thursday she was showing signs of improvement. Authorities said they would not release the victims’ names before Friday, but another ex-husband of Fournier’s, Steve Huff, confirmed to The Associated Press that she was among the dead. Salon owner Randy Fannin’s niece, Tami Scarcella, told the Los Angeles Times her uncle also was among the victims. Police officers who arrived within minutes of reports of shots fired encountered a horrific scene, with bodies of victims scattered throughout the salon and a man bleeding in the parking lot outside. Ron Sesler, working the lunch rush at his restaurant next door, said he thought the rapid “pop, pop, pop” he heard was a jackhammer until a terrified woman ran in screaming, “They’re shooting people.” He said the man killed outside was a regular at the restaurant who just happened to park next to the gunman as he was running back to his truck.

“If he was late, the guy would have driven away. If he was early, he would have been in here,” Sesler said. Fournier’s brother, Butch Fournier, said he saw footage of the salon on TV and immediately sensed the horror. “The worst part about it was seeing the news and seeing the awning and knowing exactly what happened without even hearing a word,” he said. Police arrested Dekraai, 41, about a half-mile from the scene. He put up no resistance and was being held without bail Thursday. Throughout Seal Beach and the nearby city of Huntington Beach, where Dekraai lived, his bitter custody battle with Fournier was common knowledge among friends of both. “It was a very difficult battle,” said Jo Cornhall, who lives across the street from Dekraai. In court documents filed in February, Dekraai said he had 56 percent custody of his son and his ex-wife had 44 percent. He wanted the court to grant him “final decision making authority” when it came to matters involving their son’s education and his medical and psychological treatment. In court documents filed in May, Fournier described her ex-husband as “almost manic” when it came to controlling their son. She said Dekraai “is a diagnosed bipolar individual who has problems with his own medication and his reaction to same, and he certainly shouldn’t be allowed to have unilateral and unfettered control of any and all medical and psychological aspects of our son’s life.” She said then that giving Dekraai such authority would be akin to “a situation where the inmates are running the asylum.” Fournier also alleged that Dekraai had called 911 at least once and “advised that he was going to kill himself or someone else.”

WALL STREET from page 2 26-year-old Sophie Mascia of Queens, N.Y., who has been living in Zuccotti Park for three weeks and intends to sleep there Friday night. “I think this is only going to strengthen our movement.” Protesters have had some run-ins with police earlier, but mass arrests on the Brooklyn Bridge and an incident in which some protesters were peppersprayed seemed to energize their movement. The NYPD says it will make arrests if Brookfield requests it and laws are broken. Brookfield would not comment on how it will ensure that protesters do not try to set up camp again, only saying that the cleaning was necessary because conditions in the park had become unsanitary due to the occupation. A spokesman for Mayor Michael Bloomberg, whose girlfriend is a member of Brookfield’s Board of Directors, said Brookfield has requested the city’s assistance in maintaining the park. “We will continue to defend and guarantee their

free speech rights, but those rights do not include the ability to infringe on the rights of others,” said Bloomberg’s spokesman, Marc La Vorgna. “Which is why the rules governing the park will be enforced.” Bill Blasio, the city’s public advocate, expressed concern over the city’s actions as he inspected the park Thursday afternoon and listened to protesters’ complaints. “This has been a very peaceful movement by the people,” he said. “I’m concerned about this new set of policies. At the very least, the city should slow down.” The city is provoking a confrontation by enforcing a planned cleanup, said Doug Forand, a spokesman for 99 New York, a coalition of community groups that support the protest. “To us it’s clear the whole guise of cleanup is just a smokescreen for the mayor’s goal of shutting down the protest,” Forand said. “They are very clearly set on using this as a means of silencing the voices of dissent that the mayor does not want to hear.”

Weirs Action Committee hosting candidates forum

Cain vows to amp up to national campaign for GOP nod ATLANTA (AP) — Reveling in the national spotlight, Herman Cain is pledging to bolster his fledgling White House campaign. He’ll need to — and quickly — if he has any hope of winning the Republican nomination. The unlikely presidential contender has little campaign organization in Iowa, New Hampshire and other states where voting begins in less than three months. And he hasn’t done much else in those places to capitalize on his recent surge in polls. “We are now going to ramp up,” Cain promised this week. By that he means executing what aides call a 50-state strategy — for a nomination contest that’s determined state by state. It’s a nontraditional path that other candidates have tried unsuccessfully. Cain’s campaign, which can seem almost overwhelmed by the attention that comes with a big rise in polls, argues that competing in the early voting states, while important, is not the only way to win the party’s nomination. His aides note that Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign fanned out across the country and was successful. But Obama competed vigorously in the early voting states, too. Still, Cain, who never has held political office, clearly has struck a chord with a part of the Republican electorate craving a fresh face not tied to the GOP establishment. This is the first presidential contest since the tea party’s rise, and Cain is in many ways the natural culmination of the grassroots movement: a straight-talking political out-

sider, espousing an anti-tax platform. “The conservative wing of the Republican Party has been auditioning for an anti-Romney alternative for months now,” former GOP strategist Dan Schnur said. “They’ve tried Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry, and they both wilted under the scrutiny. So far, Herman Cain seems to be holding his own.” Atlanta Tea Party Patriots co-founder Debbie Dooley explains it this way: “With Herman, what you see is what you get.” There’s no telling how long the love for Cain will last or whether he can turn the buzz into votes on primary and caucus nights this winter. It takes more than enthusiasm to win the presidency. It takes money and organization, and Cain trails his top GOP rivals on both fronts. Earlier this year, Cain had to lend his campaign $500,000 to stay afloat. He’ll report his fundraising for the past three months within days. He is suggesting that money will no longer be a problem and says he now has enough to expand his campaign. “I didn’t want to get out in front and commit to spending a whole lot of money before I knew that the American people were going to say, ‘You know what? This long shot may not be such a long shot,” Cain says. His shoestrings campaign has a certain improvised feel as it scrambles to hire staff and keep pace with the intense media interest enveloping the former head of Godfather’s Pizza since he cruised past Romney in a recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll.

Melcher & Prescott directs donations to Baby Threads

LACONIA — In an ongoing effort to assist in community projects, Claire Hebert of Melcher & Prescott Insurance recently worked together with her associates to assist with a home fall-cleanup effort that could produce items appropriate for families in need. In checking in with the Lakes Region United Way she learned that an affiliate group, Baby Threads, could be an appropriate recipient for these goods. Baby Threads, a 501(c) 3 organization established in 2000 by the late Dorothy Foley and her daughter Bonnie Champagne, is staffed 100-percent by volunteers whose original purpose was to provide quilts for newborns. Through the years it has grown to include hygiene kits and clothing for children and adults alike; backpacks filled with school supplies; and now extends to nursing homes and homeless shelters. Their workshop is located at 668 Main Street in Laconia, which is open Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10-4. In conjunction with their “Out of Your Attic Thrift Shop” in Chichester, the group has assisted over 5,000 people from Concord to Lancaster. In addition to M&P associates, Hebert received generous donations of personal and dental hygiene products from Linda DiRosa, a local Mary Kay Director, as well as Glenda Reynolds of Creative Dental Solutions of Belmont. For more information on Baby Threads visit www. babythreadsofnh.com.

by Darby Conley

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You would rather make others feel relaxed, or even superior, than intimidated. You’ll humble yourself even when you are fully aware that it is unnecessary or inaccurate to do so. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). A sadness in you will find release. This might come about in your life or through your identification with another person’s story. Once the sadness is gone, something warm and tender will rush in to fill its place. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Morning brings a fortuitous event, one that you expect will occur again in the future. Your expectation of continued luck may be the very thing that makes it so. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You seem like you have everything together. This isn’t exactly true, though. Be mindful of your unmet needs. Tell people what they are so that you can give others the chance to help you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You think you’re fine on your own, but until you experience a deeper sense of fellowship and community, you won’t realize what you’re missing. Reach out and enjoy a sense of belonging. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 14). Your beauty is enhanced by your kindness. You’ll notice you have a strange power within your close relationships. You’ll let someone go in April and find out that they want you all the more because of the freedom that comes with loving you. November, May and June are the most profitable months. Gemini and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 25, 49, 29 and 14.

Get Fuzzy

HOROSCOPE

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Ask for what you want. Your needs will be met. This might be difficult for you to believe, having often been ignored by those too self-absorbed to really see you. Today will be different. Just ask. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You need guidance and direction. It is unfair of you to believe you will find your way on your own. Why waste time wandering aimlessly? Ask for assistance or, at the very least, a map. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Only seek relationships with those who are emotionally available. You need to be around a giver. With the proper nurturing, you could heal an old wound. It’s time for this to happen. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You realize that even if you are undeniably in the right, arguing with a stranger is senseless and will get you exactly nowhere. You’ll instead find a way to let the other person save face and move quickly on. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your physical response to stress might not be to your liking, but rest assured your body knows what it’s doing. It’s giving you the energy to handle things and handle them well. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You feel safe, even with people you don’t know too well. You’ll open up in some way. Not only will you express your truth, but you also will recognize that it is your right to do so. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are starting to realize that doing the right thing for yourself once or twice a week is simply not enough. It’s important that you make regular practice of it. Repeat the action often until it becomes habitual.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, October 14, 2011— Page 17

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, Oct. 14, the 287th day of 2011. There are 78 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 14, 1960, Democratic presidential candidate John F. Kennedy suggested the idea of a Peace Corps while addressing an audience of students at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. On this date: In 1066, Normans under William the Conqueror defeated the English at the Battle of Hastings. In 1586, Mary, Queen of Scots, went on trial in England, accused of committing treason against Queen Elizabeth I. (Mary was beheaded in February 1587.) In 1890, Dwight D. Eisenhower, 34th president of the United States, was born in Denison, Texas. In 1912, Theodore Roosevelt, campaigning for the presidency, was shot in the chest in Milwaukee. Despite the wound, he went ahead with a scheduled speech. In 1939, a German U-boat torpedoed and sank the HMS Royal Oak, a British battleship anchored at Scapa Flow in Scotland’s Orkney Islands; 833 of the more than 1,200 men aboard were killed. In 1944, German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel committed suicide rather than face execution for allegedly conspiring against Adolf Hitler. In 1947, Air Force test pilot Charles E. (“Chuck”) Yeager (YAY’-gur) broke the sound barrier as he flew the experimental Bell XS-1 (later X-1) rocket plane over Muroc Dry Lake in California. In 1961, the Frank Loesser (LEH’-sur) musical “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” starring Robert Morse as J. Pierrepont Finch, opened on Broadway. In 1977, singer Bing Crosby died outside Madrid, Spain, at age 74. In 1987, a 58-hour drama began in Midland, Texas, as 18-month-old Jessica McClure slid 22 feet down an abandoned well at a private day care center; she was rescued on Oct. 16. One year ago: Chile’s 33 rescued miners posed with President Sebastian Pinera and were examined by doctors a day after they were freed from their underground prison. Today’s Birthdays: Actor Roger Moore is 84. Country singer Melba Montgomery is 73. Fashion designer Ralph Lauren is 72. Singer Sir Cliff Richard is 71. Actor Udo Kier is 67. Singer-musician Justin Hayward (The Moody Blues) is 65. Actor Harry Anderson is 59. Actor Greg Evigan is 58. TV personality Arleen Sorkin is 56. Singer-musician Thomas Dolby is 53. Actress Lori Petty is 48. Actor Steve Coogan is 46. Singer Karyn White is 46. Actor Jon Seda is 41. Country musician Doug Virden is 41. Country singer Natalie Maines is 37. Actress-singer Shaznay Lewis (All Saints) is 36. Singer Usher is 33. Actor Ben Whishaw is 31. Actor Jordan Brower is 30. Actress Skyler Shaye is 25.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, October 14, 2011— Page 19

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Dear Annie: My husband and my son-in-law are both alpha males. My daughter and I are very close. In the early years of my daughter’s marriage, there was a small power struggle between her husband and me, but I bit my tongue until it bled. We seem to have reached detente. My husband, however, has not. “Joe,” my daughter’s stepfather, is a smart, nice guy. I married him when my daughter was in high school, and she respects him a great deal. She frequently asks for his advice and help. The problem is that my son-in-law, “Todd,” bristles at any advice from Joe and refuses to accept it. Then Joe becomes angry and cannot accept that Todd doesn’t want his territory invaded. We live several states away, but they need our help taking care of our granddaughter, so we visit regularly, always at their request. The visits always start out well, but after a day or two, the arguments begin, and I feel caught in the middle. Todd already has a fragile ego because my daughter is the breadwinner. He cannot tolerate Joe’s opinions on anything, and I can’t ask my daughter to help navigate this issue, because she will rightly back her husband. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Just writing this has helped reduce my blood pressure from our last trip. -Frustrated in Kentucky Dear Kentucky: It seems your daughter has married someone very much like her stepfather. Allow her to handle her husband her own way. You can work on yours. Joe doesn’t like that his advice isn’t appreciated, so try to get him to understand that Todd is sensitive to being told what to do -- just as Joe would be. Arrange your visits so your time together is limited. Stay in a motel if you can afford it. Go out for dinner by yourselves, saying you “want to give them privacy,” or better, insist on babysitting so they can have a romantic dinner out. When the two men have an unavoidable altercation and your blood pressure rises, leave the room and let them

hash it out themselves. Dear Annie: I am 14 and just started high school. I have always been friends with younger kids, so I am worried about making friends when there isn’t anyone younger. I go to a small school, and there aren’t a ton of people. I am friendly with everyone, but don’t have any really good friends I can count on. I had one friend last year who became competitive. She would make fun of me and get my other friends to join along. She still thinks we are good friends, but I am having other thoughts. I want to find a new best friend. Am I freaking out over nothing? -- Confused Dear Confused: Navigating high school can be socially challenging, but it won’t help to become anxious. Work on developing your self-confidence -- it is highly attractive. And remember, not everyone is “best friend” material, and thinking you must find someone puts pressure on you. If you are friendly and easy to be around, you will find people to hang with. Dear Annie: This is in response to the self-absorbed “Disappointed Reader,” who thought her in-laws were too demanding by wanting occasional calls and visits. Some of my friends have discussed this attitude. We decided that since our children feel no obligation to call or visit, we no longer have any obligation to give them anything. We’ve helped with down payments, washers, dryers, refrigerators, cars, furniture, restaurant meals and trips out of town. We’ve spent plenty on grandchildren who don’t say “thank you” or bother to send a birthday card. We were there for them when they needed us. Now they don’t have time for us. Our lawyers have rewritten our wills. “Disappointed Reader” may discover she isn’t getting so much as a personal memento. Thanks for the opportunity to give these selfish brats a heads up. -- Nana in Alabama
