Department of Safety employees notified Dave Barrett has died
CONCORD — David Barrett, a Gilford resident and the director of the Division of Safety Services within the N.H. Department of Safety, died yesterday. The office of Safety Commissioner John Barthelmes confirmed Barrett’s passing and said an announcement containing the news was sent out to department personnel. No further details regarding his death were available as of press time. The Division of Safety Services includes the Marine Patrol, the bureau with which Barrett has long been associated. He was also in charge of the Inland Water Moorings Program, the Boater Education Program and the Tramway and Amusement Ride Safety Bureau. — Adam Drapcho

LACONIA — The most recent of repeated calls to try President Barack Obama for treason by Harry Accornero, a Republican member of the New Hampshire House of Representatives from Laconia, has attracted nationwide attention.

Accornero charged that Obama has given “aid and comfort to the enemy” by allowing illegal immigrants from any country to enter the United States, obtain work permits and receive public services while refusing to jail or deport them when they are appresee TReasOn page 8

Hints of interesting races surface at Weirs candidates’ forum By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — The municipal candidates forum at the Weirs Community Center, sponsored by the Weirs Action Committee, drew fewer than a dozen voters last night, but offered glimpses of what promise to be lively contests for the city council seats in at least two of the six wards.

“Gee, we don’t have much of a crowd tonight,” remarked Warren Bailey, the veteran radio personality who hosted the event. Recalling that he had been through “rough times” in local politics, Bailey said that “Washington could take some examples from how you govern” and suggested the candidates “get on a plane and head to D.C.”

Mailing a letter to cost a penny more as of Jan. 22
WASHINGTON (AP) — It’ll cost a penny more to mail a letter next year. The cash-strapped U.S. Postal Service announced Tuesday that it will increase postage rates on Jan. 22, including a 1-cent increase in the cost of first-class mail, to 45 cents. Under the law the post office cannot raise prices more than the rate of inflation, which is 2.1 percent, unless it gets special permission from the independent Postal Regulatory Commission. The PRC last year turned down such a request. The post office lost $8 billion in fiscal 2010 and the bottom line is likely to be even worse when final figures for fiscal 2011 are released next month. The rate increase will make only a small dent in those losses, caused by the recession, movement of mail to the Internet, and a requirement that the agency fund future retiree medical benefits years in advance. see MAIL page 8

Social Security to hand out first raises since ‘09 WASHINGTON (AP) — Social Security recipients will get a raise in January — their first increase in benefits since 2009. It’s expected to be about 3.5 percent. Some 55 million beneficiaries will find out for sure Wednesday when a government inflation measure that determines the annual cost-of-living adjustment is released. Congress adopted the measure in the 1970s, and since then it has resulted in annual benefit increases averaging 4.2 percent. But there was no COLA in 2010 or 2011 because inflation was too low. That was small comfort to the millions of retirees and disabled people who have seen retirement accounts dwindle and home values drop during the period of economic
weakness, said David Certner, legislative policy director for the AARP. “People certainly feel like they are falling behind, and these are modest income folks to begin with, so every dollar counts,” Certner said. “I think sometimes people forget what seniors’ incomes are.” Some of the increase in January will be lost to higher Medicare premiums, which are deducted from Social Security payments. Medicare Part B premiums for 2012 are expected to be announced next week, and the trustees who oversee the program are projecting an increase. Monthly Social Security payments average $1,082, or about $13,000 a year. A 3.5 percent increase would amount to an addi-
tional $38 a month, or about $455 a year. Most retirees rely on Social Security for a majority of their income, according to the Social Security Administration. Many rely on it for more than 90 percent of their income. Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, said the COLA would give a boost to consumer spending next year, amounting to about $25 billion in government support, or 0.2 percent more economic growth, if beneficiaries spend it all. For comparison, last year’s 2 percentage point cut in Social Security payroll taxes was worth $115 billion to U.S. households. “It is not a magic bullet for the economy, see SOCIAL SECURITY page 12
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Republican presidential contenders attacked upstart Herman Cain’s economic plan Tuesday night as a tax increase waiting to happen, moving swiftly in campaign debate to blunt the former businessman’s unlikely rise in the race for the party’s nomination. Old animosities also flared anew as former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Texas Gov. Rick Perry swapped biting personal criticisms. “You have a problem letting other people continue speaking,” Romney lectured his rival as the two men interrupted one another repeatedly. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota led the verbal assault on Cain moments
after the debate began, saying his call for a 9 percent federal sales tax would only be the beginning, with the rate rising later. Former Sen. Rick Santorum wasn’t nearly as gentle, citing one analysis that found that taxes would go up for 84 percent of the nation’s households if Cain’s proposal went into effect. “We’re talking about major increases in taxes,” he said, adding that a single person and a couple with children with the same income would pay the same tax under Cain’s proposal. Undeterred, Cain insisted the charges were untrue. He said he was being criticized because lobbyists, accountants and others “want to continue to be able to
manipulate the American people with a 10-million- word mess,” the current tax code. Cain’s proposal is for a 9 percent personal income tax, a 9 percent corporate tax and a 9 percent national sales tax. The former pizza company CEO is the latest and unlikeliest phenomenon in the race to pick a rival for President Barack Obama. A black man in a party that draws few votes from Africans Americans, he had bumped along with little notice as Romney sought to fend off one fast-rising rival after another. That all changed in the past few weeks, after Perry burst into the race and then fell see CAIN page 17

Pressure on Nevada to Missing Hampstead boy found sleeping at neighbor’s (AP) — A 9-year-old boy missing fived a state trooper. change Jan. 14 caucus vote forHAMPSTEAD nearly 30 hours was found Tuesday sleeping Neighbors say Mark and Kerrilyn Frenette have
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada Republicans are facing intense criticism from Republican candidates and rival states to change the date of their GOP presidential nominating caucuses, drawing unwanted attention just as the spotlight turns on the state for Tuesday’s nationally televised political debate. It’s unclear whether the Nevada GOP will stick with its Jan. 14 date when 200 rank-and-file members vote on the matter at a central committee meeting in Las Vegas on Saturday. GOP leaders aren’t sure what the ultraconservative, unruly group will decide. Some state party members want the date moved to Jan. 17 to make New Hampshire happy. Others want to move the contest to Feb. 4 to comply with national committee rules and avoid losing any delegates during the national Republican convention in Tampa next year. Other Nevada Republicans have laughed off the boycott from the lesser known candidates and support the Jan. 14 date. “I’m OK with Jan. 14 as long as the Republican National Committee doesn’t penalize us,” said Lori Piotrowski, a Las Vegas activist who will cast her vote Saturday. “I definitely would want that in writing from them to make sure that doesn’t happen.” State Republican leaders voted earlier this month to move up their contest from Feb. 18, a five-week jump that has wreaked havoc on the Republican primary race and prompted New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner to threaten to hold that state’s historic presidential contest during the December holiday season. Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, businessman Herman Cain and three other presidential candidates consequently launched a boycott against Nevada, with Huntsman going so far as to skip the GOP debate in Las Vegas Tuesday night. Nevada GOP leaders have defended their new caucus date, but the party’s foot soldiers have voted against the executive board’s recommendations in the past, and their varied demands make for an unpredictable outcome. Heidi Smith, a GOP national committeewoman from northern Nevada who voted against the Jan. 14 date, said Republican leaders in New Hampshire have frantically been calling her to discuss a compromise. see NEVADA page 5
Market Basket faces big fines over workplace safety issues CONCORD (AP) — A company that operates Market Basket supermarkets faces over $589,000 in possible fines over workplace safety violations at two New Hampshire stores. The U.S. Labor Department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cited DeMoulas Supermarkets Inc., doing business as Market Basket, for 30 alleged violations at the stores in Concord and Rindge. The grocery chain is based in Tewksbury, Mass. OSHA says the inspection of the store in Rindge began after a worker suffered broken bones and head trauma in April when he fell 11 feet to a concrete floor from a storage area that didn’t have adequate guardrails. The Concord inspection began in May after an OSHA supervisor observed a similar guardrail problem. The company has 15 days to respond.
N.H. jobless rate ticks up a notch
CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire’s jobless rate has inched up in September. New Hampshire Employment Security said Tuesday that the seasonally adjusted rate was 5.4 percent, an increase of 0.1 percentage point from August. The unemployment rate for a year ago in September was 5.8 percent while the national unemployment rate for September was 9.1 percent. There were 2,900 fewer unemployed residents in New Hampshire in September than in September 2010.
peacefully in a neighbor’s home. The homeowners discovered Devin Frenette around 6:30 p.m. asleep in a bed in their Hampstead home, which is about 1,000 feet from his family’s home, investigators said. The boy had last been seen playing in the yard of his home Monday afternoon. His disappearance prompted a massive search by hundreds of volunteers and officers, dogs and a state police helicopter equipped with night vision gear. Devin, who’s just 3-foot-6, and his parents made a brief appearance before the media gathered in front of their home to thank the officials and volunteers who combed woods, swamplands and a nearby gravel pit and quarry looking for him. Devin wrapped his arms around his mother’s neck as she held him. His parents said no words can express their joy or gratitude at having him back. “Thank you so much,” mother Kerrilyn Frenette said tearfully. As the family returned to its house, Devin high-
three adult sons and adopted Devin and his older sister when Devin was 2. Neighbor Paula Smith said that her sons played with Devin’s older brothers when they were young and that Devin and his sister often played outside. “He’s the cutest little thing you’ll ever see,” she said. “He’s a little guy.” The Frenettes’ home is in a neighborhood of similarly styled contemporary houses where children frequently are out on bikes or skateboards, neighbors say. Tuesday it was teeming with police and reporters. Devin had wandered from his home in May but was found within hours several miles away. Barely two hours before Devin’s discovery, Fish and Game Department Capt. John Wimsatt had expressed optimism and urged townspeople to search garages, sheds and even cars on their properties. But Devin apparently chose a far more comfortable option. see BOY page 5
BANI WALID, Libya (AP) — Revolutionary forces celebrated the capture of one Moammar Gadhafi stronghold and closed in Tuesday on the last holdouts in the fugitive leader’s hometown of Sirte, putting total victory in their eight-month uprising just a few city blocks away. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton offered millions of dollars in new aid to Libya, encouraging the country’s unsteady new leadership to commit to a democratic future free of retribution. “I am proud to stand here on the soil of a free Libya,” Clinton said on a visit to the capital, Tripoli. “The United States was proud to stand for you in your fight for freedom and we will continue to stand
with you as you continue this journey.” Although two months have passed since Gadhafi fled the capital, Libya’s new leaders have refrained from declaring national “liberation” until the fall of Sirte, which Gadhafi transformed from a fishing village into a modern city after he seized power in 1969. Revolutionary forces on Tuesday pushed from the east into the small pocket of the city under the control of Gadhafi loyalists and captured a vegetable market, though they came under heavy fire from snipers and rocket-propelled grenades on the rooftops of residential buildings and homes along major streets.

Belmont dealing with mold problem on lower level of historic mill; air scrubber to be installed BELMONT — Due to higher than acceptable humidity levels in the basement of the Belmont Mill, selectmen Monday night authorized the town administrator to spend $4,500 on mold and humidity remediation. Administrator Jeanne Beaudin said the mold, which she emphasized is not the type of mold that is considered dangerous, nevertheless is there and the solution going forward is to keep two dehumidifiers working on either side of the preschool program. “This was totally unexpected,” Beaudin told selectmen, saying she could cover much of the expense from the Belmont Mill custodial services line in the budget. After getting notified about the problem by the Belmont Early Learning Center, Beaudin said she contacted the company Green Solutions to test the carpets and walls for mold and air quality. She said the report indicated there was no water damage but that because the preschool is in the basement, it is going to experience higher that aver-
age humidity levels. After only getting one bid to fix the problem, which she said includes a thorough carpet cleaning, the installation of an air scrubber for $2,900 and cleaning all the surfaces with an anti-fungal agent, she brought the proposal to selectmen. Beaudin said the Early Learning Center has budgeted $400 for cleaning the carpets and will apply that toward the remediation so the costs to the town are $1,100 for the before and after inspections and balance of $3,400 for the scrubber and the cleaning. Selectmen Ron Cormier and David Morse both said they understand that as a landlord it is the town’s responsibility but hopes the Early Learning Center uses the dehumidifiers so further problems won’t occur. Beaudin said she has also contacted the town’s insurance carrier but as of Monday evening’s meeting, had not heard back from them. — Gail Ober

Project manager asks for patience, says Oak St. improvements will be worth today’s inconvenience By Gail OBer
LACONIA — The long Oak Street-North Main Street reconstruction project is nearing completion said city Public Works Department project foreman Lee Thompson yesterday. Thompson said the projects was designed with two goals: to make the intersection less dangerous by adding a turning line and new street lights and to redo all of Oak Street including the electrical, gas, water, sewage and drainage. “People get the impression we’re not doing stuff but there’s really an awful lot involved,” said Thompson who has coordinated with all of the various utility providers, both public and private, to get all of the underground infrastructure done so the road can be completed correctly the first time.
Thompson said the Oak Street project is “going as well as we planned” and he said that by the end of next week the city should have finished grinding the remaining pavement, put in a new base, and raised the sewers and catch basins. He said the bases for the new traffic lights should be installed at the beginning of next week although the new traffic lights won’t be installed until the end of November. Thompson said he understands that residents are getting tired of the construction but, much like Highland Street last year, once the project is finished the neighborhood residents are really going to be happy. “The intersection will be much safer and efficient, there won’t be as much build-up of winter ice and snow, and the neighborhood will be much better,” Thompson said.
BOY from page 2 Wimsatt confirmed he was in a bed, asleep, when his neighbors arrived home. He said he did not know how long the boy had been there. Imploring the media not to question the family during its brief appearance, Wimsatt said Devin and his family had been through “a traumatic ordeal.” The search for Devin prompted an outpouring of community support and volunteers. It also stoked fear and anxiety in the small community near the Massachusetts border, 40 miles north of Boston. More than 100 volunteers lined up at a nearby commuter lot to assist in the search and were taken by bus in small groups to specific areas throughout the day.
Behind the scenes, the search had at least one grim moment. Lani Venturi, of Newton, was part of a 14-member search group that found a child’s sneaker in woods about 100 yards from Devin’s house early Tuesday afternoon. She said the group froze in place for about an hour until the sneaker could be shown to Devin’s parents. She said their search resumed when they got word that it wasn’t his. Before the neighbors found Devin in their home, there were rumors he had been seen here or there. But Wimsatt said there hadn’t been any credible sighting. “I’m sure he’s scared he’s going to be in trouble,” Wimsatt said two hours before the boy was found.
NEVADA from page 2 “No one can say what’s going to happen Saturday,” Smith said. The calendar scramble began after Florida skipped ahead of the four early contest states and set its primary for Jan. 31. Nevada, South Carolina and Iowa followed without consulting New Hampshire, leaving that state without a date to hold its historic contest. The confusion is driven by a New Hampshire statute that directs Gardner to hold the primary at least seven days before a similar contest. Nevada officials claim Gardner has misinterpreted the law by comparing Nevada’s sprawling caucuses organized by the state political parties to the primary New Hampshire state officials hold. A December start to the presidential contests is unprecedented, and critics fear the move would shorten the time voters have to scrutinize the candidates. The Republican National Committee had hoped to hold off the presidential contests until early February. Iowa, which has avoided the ire of New Hamp-
shire’s political leaders, is not budging. “Iowa is Jan. 3, and I do not anticipate the date changing,” Iowa Republican Party Chairman Matt Strawn said Tuesday. Nevada Democrats urged their Republican counterparts to stand firm Tuesday and announced they, too, would move their caucus date to Jan. 14. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the state’s senior senator and de factor Democratic leader, lobbied for Nevada’s third-in-the-nation contest in 2008 and is worried Republicans will back down and give away Nevada’s coveted early vote. Reid wants to protect Nevada’s position in the presidential nomination calendar for the 2016 elections, when Democrats hope to elect a successor to President Barack Obama. “After working so hard to ensure our state plays a key role in presidential elections, I hope today’s announcement will strengthen the resolve of those under pressure to place that status in jeopardy,” Reid said in a statement.

End in sight for white America? John Hope Franklin, the famed black historian at Duke University, once told the incoming freshmen, “The new America in the 21st century will be primarily non-white, a place George Washington would not recognize.” In his June 1998 commencement address at Portland State, President Clinton affirmed it: “In a little more than 50 years, there will be no majority race in the United States.” The graduates cheered. The Census Bureau has now fixed at 2041 the year when whites become a minority in a country where the Founding Fathers had restricted citizenship to “free white persons” of “good moral character.” With publication today of “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?” this writer takes up what this portends. And while many on the left are enthusiastic about relegating the America of Eisenhower and JFK to a reactionary past, I concur with the late Clare Boothe Luce. In this world, she said, there are optimists and pessimists. “The pessimists are better informed.” What are the seemingly inevitable consequences of an America where whites are a shrinking minority? First, the end of a national Republican Party that routinely gets 90-percent of its presidential votes from white America. California is the harbinger of what is to come. Carried by Richard Nixon in all five presidential elections when he was on the ticket and by Ronald Reagan all four times he ran, California, where whites are now a shrinking minority, is a state where the GOP faces extinction. John McCain’s share of the California vote was down to the Barry Goldwater level of 1964. When Texas, where two-thirds of the newborns and half the schoolchildren are Hispanic, goes the way of California, it is the end for the GOP. Arizona, Colorado and Nevada, also critical to any victorious GOP coalition, are Hispanicizing as rapidly as Texas. In every presidential election since Bush I in 1992, Hispanics have given 60 to 70-percent of their votes to the Democratic ticket. For Hispanics, largely poor and working class, are beneficiaries of a cornucopia of government goods — from free education to food stamps to free health care. Few pay federal income taxes. Why would they not vote for the Party of Government? Second, the economic crisis of California, brought on by an outflow of taxpayers and a huge influx of tax consumers — i.e., millions of immigrants, legal and illegal — will be mirrored nationally. For though the majority of immigrants and illegals comes to work, and work hard, most now come from Third World coun-
tries and do not bring the academic or professional skills of EuropeanAmericans. Third, the decline in academic test scores here at home and in international competition is likely to continue, as more and more of the children taking those tests will be African-American and Hispanic. For though we have spent trillions over four decades, we have failed to close the racial gap in education. White and Asian children continue to outscore black and Hispanic children. Can the test-score gap be closed? With the Hispanic illegitimacy rate at 51-percent and the black rate having risen to 71-percent, how can their children conceivably arrive at school ready to compete? Should this continue for three decades, what will it mean for America if Asians and whites occupy the knowledge-industry jobs, while scores of millions of black and Hispanic workers are relegated to low-paying service-sector jobs? Will that make for social tranquility? Affirmative action is one answer. But this is already causing a severe backlash, and the reason is obvious. When affirmative action was first imposed, whites outnumbered blacks nine to one. The burden of reverse discrimination on the white community was thus relatively light. Today, however, not only blacks, but Hispanics and women — two-thirds of the entire population — qualify for affirmative action in hiring and school admissions. And the burden falls almost entirely on white males, who are one-third of the country but threefourths of the dead and wounded coming back from Afghanistan. Sociologist Robert Putnam, author of “Bowling Alone,” has also found that the greater the racial and ethnic diversity in a community, the less social capital there is — i.e., people in diverse settings are far less disposed to cooperate for social goals. They retreat into enclaves of their own kind. Putnam found social capital at the lowest level he ever measured in Los Angeles, the most diverse community on earth. Yet, by 2042, the demography of every American city will approximate that of L.A. What is happening to America is happening across the West. Can Western civilization survive the passing of the European peoples whose ancestors created it and their replacement by Third World immigrants? Probably not, for the new arrivals seem uninterested in preserving the old culture they have found. Those who hold the white race responsible for the mortal sins of mankind — slavery, racism, imperialism, genocide — may welcome its departure from history. Those who believe that the civilization that came out of Jerusalem, Athens, Rome and London to be the crowning achievement of mankind will mourn its passing.
LETTERS My opponent hasn’t offered any great new ideas. Where are they? To the editor, I was wondering what my theme was going to be this year. Now, thanks to my opponent, I think I have found it. My opponent, in a interview with The Citizen, makes my age an issue and pigeonholes me as having an interest only in senior-related matters and cites the need for forward looking representation. He makes note of the fact that I am retired, don’t work. Being a city councilor IS my work, and I spend most days involved with matters that affect Ward 4 and the rest of the city. Last night for instance, I attended a meeting of Lakes Region Clear Water Assoc. about what milfoil and bacteria did to the economy and the future of this city over 30 years ago. We are again facing the same problems and the threat to our tourism industry. I was there looking for answers. Where were you Jack? Of course, this involves every age, so I guess I shouldn’t have been there. Thanks to my prodding for years, Wyatt Park is now getting attention to their problems and needs. Something for families and children. My involvement with supporting local
hospital and doctors in the JUA debacle when the state tried to steal over 100 million dollars from them consisted of appearing twice before the JALCAR committee in Concord and writing articles. This was not just for seniors. I believe every citizen is a health care patient. Where were you Jack? I had a major role in restoring funds to the Police Department this year so they wouldn’t have to lay off an officer. It really paid off. Safety is not just for seniors, it is for everyone. Right Jack? Speaking of the budget, no one attended public hearings on the budget. Where were you Jack with your innovative ideas? He ran two years ago and had the same theme. Forward thinking, new ideas. Well, Jack, it has been two years and have you offered those great ideas at anytime? Where were you? Age is NOT a problem. The problem is people who have ideas and thoughts but don’t express them. Wisdom is not a bad thing. Diversity is good. We can’t all be lawyers, bankers, CEO’s. Some of us have to be regular people. Councilor Brenda Baer Ward 4, Laconia
I was deeply disturbed by picture of dead moose on front page To the editor, I am wondering what the thought process was that would make anyone think that putting a full color, threequarter page photo of a dead moose with his tongue hanging out on the front page of your news paper appropriate? For that matter, having it on any page of The Laconia Daily Sun. “News” of the slaughter of a docile animal is not worthy of printing unless it is for a hunting magazine, or alike, in which the reader expects to see such carnage. I called the paper to say so and was told by Gail Ober to write a letter to the paper. Here it is. She then made the statement “I take it you are against hunting”. My reply was, “No. I am not against hunting; people will do as they choose. How-
ever I could never harm an animal. I am against people shoving such offensive photos in my face without warning or a chance to avoid those types of photos. I don’t want to see it. Yet, this morning when I walked into work, there in the newspaper rack, in practically full, front page coverage, was the photo of the dead moose — unavoidable”. She then went on to say that she was the one who submitted that photo of a couple of friends of hers and that she was surprised that it was so prominently displayed on the front page. Well, now, I can not get that picture out of my head. I am so deeply disturbed by having to have seen this. Louisa Simpson Sanbornton
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, October 19, 2011 — Page 7
LETTERS The Tea Party’s ﬁscal agenda is already on its death bed
I can count to 10, too; at least Obama is trying to get things done
To the editor, Where are the jobs, Mr. Boehner? You stood on the House floor in 2010 and hollered, “where are the Jobs, Mr President”? I saw dozens of clips of Republicans and tea partiers asking the same. What have you done about jobs? Nothing. You made a big deal about jobs and yet you have done nothing. Here is what you did last week, Mr. Speaker. You had “ABORTION DAY” in the House of Representatives for the seventh time this year but you have not offered one jobs bill. Seven abortion related votes in nine months and not one single jobs bill. Seven attacks on women’s health and rights and zero jobs bills. On Thursday your House voted to allow a hospital emergency room to turn away a pregnant woman who might be hemorrhaging or miscarrying. Anything to save a fetus. It’s those religious conservatives — endlessly playing “Christian Jihad in America”. Again, the Party of Death has struck with its latest, the “Let Women Die” law. I don’t remember the tea party campaigning on social issues in 2010 but intruding on people’s liberties seems to be the driving obsession now. From the bowels of the Trojan Horse of the Tea Party’s economic message have come Christian jihadists that have targeted women’s health clinics, reproductive rights, and gay rights. Good examples of these deceivers are found right here in N.H. How’s that less government intrusion workin’ out for ya? They want to shove their religion down your throats and use the government to do so. And did any of the GOP candidates run on union busting or passing restrictive new voting laws? Nope! Stifling your wages and making it harder to vote are what the right wing seeks. They want you impotent. When legislators bust unions, it is an intrusion designed to weaken working class Americans and strengthen the right wing aristocracy. Right wing corporatism is the road to serfdom
To the editor, My response to Mr. Boutin’s Top 10 Myths: # 1. Sometimes the rich even hire extra help when they need it but right now, even with all the tax breaks they are not hiring — no trickle down economics here. Wall Street rich guys just pad their pockets with your investments and you get the 1 to 2-percent return if any. # 2. For the most part the Democratic Party is for the people while the Republicans are not. You also forgot to mention that both Fanny & Freddie were deregulated under the Bush years. Easy money. # 3. Social Security is a gift that you didn’t earn or deserve but as long as you pay into it you will get a return from it. Your return compared with your investment is MUCH GREATER so after a year or so the gift part begins. In order words, after a year or so you are collecting what others are putting into it. Whatever Social Security you get it is a gift, so quit complaining. # 4. Read your own comment. # 5. Unions first came into being to protect the workers and to make the workplace safe. Money was only a part of it. Books have been written on this subject, so try one. In some respects they have gotten too strong but sometimes even fairness prevails. Stamps are still cheap for what we get for them and education . . . sorry gotta stop there as it might have been to expensive for some. # 6. Same as Social Security but I don’t know enough about it and will
because they seek to atomize and neuter Americans, making each of us separated, vulnerable, with no voice. We hear tea partiers claiming they want less government intrusion but as shown above, they are lying. When lawmakers attack reproductive freedom, they intrude into the personal lives and medical decisions of women and their families. When lawmakers attack gay rights, they attack liberty, justice and equality. Just as Islamists do, they inject religion to support their bigotry. Guess who was in N.H. this last week to fight gay rights? The Ayatollah Tony Perkins! Fiscally, the tea party’s fiscal agenda is on its death bed. In most of the polls, Tea Party approval ranges from 20 to 28-percent with disapproval ranging up to 53-percent. On cutting Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid to fix the economy, a large majority emphatically say “NO”. On raising taxes on the upper earners and closing tax loopholes on corporations, a strong majority say “GO FOR IT!” The modest hikes proposed would return us to the tax rates of the Clinton era, a time when America prospered greatly. But because the right is so blindly possessed by their naive yet miserly von Mises dogma, its still unacceptable. They ignore the higher taxes and Keynesian strategies of the 1950s and the 1990s when America shined economically. Cutting social programs in order to give tax breaks to those who don’t need them is DOA. The Tea party has fallen and it can’t get up. In a recent study done by authors David Campbell and Robert Putnam (see http://www.nytimes. com/2011/08/17/opinion/crashing-thetea-party.html?_r... ) the Tea Party and Sarah Palin were the bottom two in a list of groups or persons according to their approval. Atheists and Muslims did better than both the tea party and Palin. That’s really funny. James Veverka Tilton
I’m ready to ask Sen. Ayotte about rights to Social Security beneﬁts To the editor, As you know, Senator Kelly Ayotte is coming to Meredith on Friday. Look closely. She is only giving one hour, between noon and one, not really enough time to answer any questions one is tempted to ask. I for one, would like her to answer what she is doing to get all these people in funny clothing off the Social Security roles, when people who have paid into
the system but lack the full 40-quarters to collect are denied. Just what gives all these people who have not paid into the system the right to a check? I hope that these letters I write are getting the average American who is getting the shaft mad enough to remember when it comes time to vote, who NOT to vote for. Bev Buker Gilford
admit it. # 7. Pollsters or those who have those jobs can and will use math for just about everything. # 8. Socialism, have to be gentle here because of child labor laws, suffrage etc. Spending has nothing to do with it. Ask Michelle Bachmann about that. # 9. At least Obama tries to get things done. The banks and auto industries will thank him for that. Of course the banks are not as appreciative as the auto industry. # 10. I agree with you to the extent that we can’t keep on spending money without generating some income like repealing tax cuts, loopholes, reckless spending and fraud. Large companies have been expanding outside our borders for a LONG time, but why? It is good for their business and that is what they care about. We need inventors of new items that we need and can make here at a saleable price. Until then other countries will be making our stuff at a price we can afford to buy them at. Also, we may not have the workers to make these items because a.) we don’t want low income immigrant workers here without papers and b.) Wall Street beacons those who are after the big bucks. BUT stimulus money well spent always has a good return. You might not have been out of New Hampshire for a while but there is a large nationwide highway system built in the 1950s by stimulus money. Check it out. See how the rest of the country lives and breathes. Enjoy your trip. Jon Hoyt, Bridgewater

TREASON from page one hended by law enforcement agencies. He claimed that “Barack Hussein Obama has crossed the line” and is “attempting to overthrow our government from within.” Calling Obama “a fraudulent president who is selling out America,” Accornero urged “members of Congress to finally do your constitutional duty and hold Barack Hussein Obama accountable for his crimes against America.” In fact, Accornero began levelling charges of treason against Obama in letters to the newspaper months ago and began drawing attention from ultra-conservative groups like America’s Party, BirtherReport and the Patriots Union after speaking to the issue on “The Advocates,” the talk radio program hosted by conservative activist Niel Young and broadcast on WEZS-AM. Accornero said that the Veteran Defenders of America, a group sponsoring a rally in Washington on November 11 to call for Obama to resign or be impeached, and the Patriot News contacted him about his letters and asked if they could circulate them to other state legislatures. “I disagree with Obama on a lot of issues,” said Accornero with uncharacteristic understatement. He claimed
that the president was not only letting terrorists cross the borders but also supplying them with firearms, sending their children to school and providing their families with benefits. “Immigration is only part of it,” Accornero said. “He’s given $3-million to China to teach their kids to speak English and money to Pakistan and Iran. These are people who want to destroy us,” he declared. Accornero said that Obama has bypassed Congress to put American armed forces in harm’s way overseas. “And what about states rights?” he asked. “That’s in our Constitution.” As examples he said that Obama gave federal funds to Planned Parenthood to provide family planning services in New Hampshire after the Executive Council cancelled the state’s contract with the organization and claimed that he prevented Boeing from opening a factory in South Carolina because it is a “right-to-work” state. “You could go on and on,” Accornero said. “I believe these are treasonous acts.” Accornero said that he has heard from like-minded people from across the country. “It’s sad that a little state representative from Laconia gets all this publicity,” he reflected. “I guess they were looking for someone to stand up for what they’ve been saying for a long time.”
He remarked that he had also heard from others who did not share his opinion of the president. “I never knew women could use that kind of language,” he said. “There were words I didn’t even know.” Accornero conceded “I will be surprised to hear from Congress, but the ball is in their court.” Recognizing that Accornero, like other Republican representatives before him, drew unwelcome attention to the GOP majority in the N.H.
House, Majority Leader D. J. Bettencourt promptly issued a formal statement saying, “This really has nothing to do with the agenda that we are currently working on in the New Hampshire House. While I respect how passionate my colleague from Laconia may be on this matter,” he continued, “the best way to handle the problem of what President Obama has done to this country is by electing a new president in 2012 and we are working extremely hard toward that end.”
MAIL from page 2 Other proposals to cut the losses have included reduction of mail delivery from six to five days a week and closing thousands of offices across the country. The current 44-cent rate has been in effect since May 2009. “The overall average price increase is small and is needed to help address our current financial crisis,” Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe said in a statement. “We continue to take actions within our control to increase revenue in other ways and to aggressively cut costs. To return to sound financial footing we urgently need enactment of comprehensive, long-term legislation to provide the Postal Service with a more flexible business model.” The Postal Regulatory Commission now has 45 days to verify that the new prices comply with the law limiting the increase to an average of 2.1 percent across all types of mail. They
can then take effect. Because most stamps being issued are “Forever” stamps, they will remain good for first-class postage. But buying new Forever stamps will cost more when the prices go up. While the price for the first ounce of a first-class letter will rise to 45 cents, the cost for each additional ounce will remain at the current 20 cents. Other prices will also change including: —Postcards will go up 3 cents to 32 cents. —Letters to Canada and Mexico will increase a nickel to 85 cents. —Letters to other foreign countries will go up 7 cents to $1.05. —Prices for advertising mail, periodicals and parcels also will rise about 2.1 percent. —There will be a new three-month option for renting post office boxes, for people who need them only for a short time. —Delivery confirmation will be free on some parcel services, rather than being an extra charge. A major financial problem for the post office has been the requirement, imposed in 2006, that it pay $5.5 billion annually into a fund designed to cover the medical benefits for retired employees in the future. No other agency has such a requirement. But while the post office is not part of the federal budget, the fund receiving the payment is, so it counts as income to the government, making the federal deficit appear $5.5 billion smaller. Because eliminating the payment would make the deficit seem bigger, there has been reluctance to drop it.
DOG from page one a manifest intention of the donor to give an unconditional delivery of the thing” and that the petitioner, Ellen Sharps, had not intended the dog to be a permanent gift to her niece Kelly Conkey. He said the delivery of the product could come before the intent of making the gift permanent and because Sharps held the dog’s papers and Conkey had not paid anything to her for the dog, then Sharps was still Scrappy’s owner.

Putnam Fund brings Four Freshmen to Laconia for free Friday night concert By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — On Friday evening, the Laconia Putnam Fund will bring to the city a musical group whose influence in American pop music is rivaled only by its longevity. The group performing on Friday is The Four Freshmen, and like all Putnam Fund performances admission is free and seating at the Laconia High School auditorium is first-come, first-
seated. The show is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. The Four Freshmen formed in 1948 and was comprised of Bob Flanigan, Don Barbour, Ross Barbour and Hal Kratzsch. There have been many personnel changes through the band’s career, with the current Freshmen constituting what they refer to as the 22nd “incarnation” of the original quartet’s iconic sound, which see next page

from preceding page pairs barbershop-style vocal harmonies with jazz instrumentation and arrangements. The Four Freshmen are credited with inspiring Brian Wilson, who borrowed their close harmonies when he formed the Beach Boys, one of the best-selling bands to ever produce an album. Bob Ferreira, a 41 year-old drummer, joined the Four Freshmen almost 20 years ago and is the oldest member of the current incarnation of the group. He is joined by horn player Curtis Calderon and bass player Vince Johnson. At 35, guitarist and lead vocalist Brian Eichenberger is the youngest member. Ferreira said joining such an historic group, one which no longer features original members, is akin to being hired at a well-established company, or being drafted by the Boston Celtics. “The name is kind of an institution,” he said, “The organization stays the same but the players change.” Though the current batch of Freshmen weren’t born until the group’s history was already a couple decades old, Ferreira said he and his bandmates continue to find the Freshmen’s songbook intriguing and challenging. Not only is the vocal work as difficult as barbershop, the Freshmen provide their own instrumentation. In approaching the material, Ferreira said, the modern Freshmen stay true to the vocal arrangements on the original charts. However, when it comes to instrumentation, rhythm or other
arrangement considerations, they do whatever best suits their abilities and tastes. “We’re not a memory group or a nostalgia act – at least we don’t consider ourselves a nostalgia act.” None of them are old enough, he noted, to have nostalgia for pop music of the 1950s. “There’s nothing that says it has to be just like the record... Our influences and our styles do become, in subtle ways, part of what we do.” What they do, they do well, apparently. So well that founding member Bob Flanigan said at a Four Freshmen convention in 2007 that the current incarnation is the best staff to wear the mantle. Fans who remember seeing the Freshmen in their early years seem to agree, at least according to Ferreira. It’s a frequent occurrence for audience members to approach the musicians after a performance and proclaim, “You sound just like the real Four Freshmen.” Ferreira jokingly replies, “I thought we were the real Freshmen.” “We know what they mean,” Ferreira laughed. The group performs about a hundred times each year – enough for members to pursue projects on the side – and after their show in Laconia they’ll travel to Minnesota to record vocal tracks for an upcoming album. Ferreira said he and his bandmates are grateful for the opportunity to further the legacy of the Four Freshmen, and that they have a good time doing it. “I hope everyone can make it to the High School, it should be a lot of fun.”
LIBYA from page 3 forces, said the battle for Sirte, 250 miles (400 kilometers) southeast of Tripoli, was essentially finished so he was now returning home to the eastern city of Benghazi. “The fighting in Sirte is nearly over,” Ali said, adding that the holdouts were surrounded in a narrow, twoblock area. “I think they have a lot of ammunition, but our fighters will fire Grads and get it over with so maybe tomorrow it will be liberated and bombed and we will begin the hunt for Gadhafi.” In an apparent warning that Gadhafi
could still threaten the new leadership if he continues to elude capture, Clinton acknowledged in unusually blunt terms that the United States would like to see the ousted dictator dead. “We hope he can be captured or killed soon so that you don’t have to fear him any longer,” Clinton told students and others at a town hall-style gathering in the capital. Until now, the U.S. has generally avoided saying that Gadhafi should be killed. Libyan military spokesman Col. Ahmed Bani said Monday that the search would intensify after authorities declare victory.

LACONIA — High school football players in New Hampshire can do some things that the pros can’t. They can, for instance, return to the playing field after having suffered a concussion without ever having to pass a test that is mandatory for National Football League players who have had brain trauma injuries. Those tests, developed by Pittsburgh area doctors in the 1990s, help doctors evaluate an athlete’s recovery from a concussion and should be mandated statewide, Dr. John Grobman of Orthopedic Professional Associates in Gilford told the Laconia School Board last night. “I hope the state will mandate testing. You can’t go on the field in the NFL without passing that test,’’ says Grobman, who has been on the sidelines at Laconia High School athletic events ever since 1986 and says that he has seen substantial improvement in the way concussions are treated in recent years. He said that in recent years emergency room visits for high school and college athletes for closed head injuries are up, which is actually a good thing because it means that student athletes are being treated and evaluated. Grobman said that the impact test for concussion management is a 20 to 30 minute research-based computer test which helps measure an athlete’s recovery by measuring reflex and cognitive elements and comparing post injury results against a baseline based on an earlier test of the athlete. “It’s amazing how fooled you can be. You can look at and talk to an athlete after a brain trauma injury and think they’re fine. But these impact tests can tell you clearly whether or not they’re able to get back out on the field,” said Grobman. He said that high school athletes are especially vulnerable to what he called the “second injury syndrome’’ because their brains are still developing and that having the impact tests is crucial in determining whether or not an athlete is ready to return to competition. Grobman made his comments during a presentation on the health of athletes to the school board in which Laconia High School athletic director Jim Chase and Laconia Middle School athletic director Chris Ennis discussed steps being taken at the schools which are putting Laconia in a leadership position statewide on protecting athletes from serious injuries. Among those taking part in the innovative programs are Summit Heath of Belmont, which is run by 1986 Laconia High School graduate Lisa Charest, and which provides athlete performance testing and injury

risk assessment and develops specific exercises and stretching programs to address problem areas. She said that 80 high school athletes were screened and that 84-percent were at risk for ACL injuries, including 95-percent of the female athletes. Also partnering with Laconia High School through its outreach program is Granite State Physical Therapy, which has facilities in Concord, Hooksett and Laconia and provides an athletic trainer for Laconia High School. “We’re planning to work closely with Summit to make sure that safety is first,’’ said Brian Verville, Granite State Physical Therapy president. Grobman said that having a trainer available is a great thing for the school system and that the Laconia is the first school system in the area to have such a system. Superintendent of Schools Bob Champlin said that it was very reassuring to have Grobman at high school games and noted that was particularly so during an early season football game in which a Laconia High School player suffered what appeared to be a severe neck injury. Grobman said that the first word that he received see next page

CITY OF LACONIA Notice of Public Hearing Proposed Charter Amendment – Library Trustees

CANDIDATES from page one Jack Terrill, president of the Lakes Region United Way, in a rematch of the race Baer won by a nose in 2010. Richard Beaudoin, a semi-retired contractor who won a spot on the ballot with two write-in votes in the primary, faces incumbent Matt Lahey in Ward 2 while Tony Felch, with 10 times as many write-in votes as Beaudoin, seeks to deny Armand Bolduc a 15th term in Ward 6. As the candidates offered brief opening statements, Baer set sparks flying by reading a letter that appears in today’s edition of The Daily Sun that wrote in response to remarks made her opponent in an interview with The Citizen. Baer, who is 85, charged that Terrill made her age an issue and suggested that she was only interested in issues bearing on senior citizens and called for “forward looking representation.” As Terrill listened politely, Baer noted her efforts on behalf of the environment, support for LRGHealthcare and contribution to the city budget. Recalling that two years ago Terrill took “forward thinking “ as the theme of his campaign, she asked “well, Jack, it has been two years and have you offered those great ideas at anytime? Where were you?” In closing she insisted “age in not a problem. The problem is people who have ideas and thoughts but don’t express them.” “In my business,” said Bailey, introducing Terrill, “we call this the rebuttal.” Suggesting his remarks were misunderstood, Terrill said that he intended to stress that “we are from two different generations. I certainly respect my elders,” he continued, “and the work you do for the community.” He said that he entered the race because Baer had no opponent, adding “that is fundamentally wrong.” “I can offer a different perspective,” Terrill said. “That doesn’t mean one is right and the other is from preceding page from the emergency room at the hospital was that the player had suffered a concussion. He said that he was at another game in Gilford in which a Gilford player had taken a hard hit in the head and after resting wanted to get back into the game. “He appeared fine but we wouldn’t let him go back in. By the end of the game he was throwing up in the locker room,’’ said Grobman, He said that over the years he has never had a Laconia coach push him to say that a player was ready to return when he wasn’t sure that it was safe but that hasn’t always been the case with other schools in the area.
wrong, just that they are different.” Although there was no such sharp exchange between the candidates in Ward 1, Condodemtraky appeared determined to run Doyle a competitive race. Doyle, who was appointed to complete the term of Greg Knytych , said that she “listened and learned” and emphasized “it’s not about me. It’s all about you.” Condodemetraky proclaimed himself a “job creator” and “problem solver” who believes “you don’t live beyond your means” and in “long-term planning.” Asked about the project to acquire and reopen the Colonial Theater, both candidates said it should be funded privately, but Condodemtraky was especially forceful, calling it “a money pit” and insisting “we should not be spending any money on it.” Doyle did not respond to a question about the salaries and benefits of municipal employees, but Condodemetraky warned that freezing salaries and cutting benefits would undermine the morale of professional employees and prompt them to seek work elsewhere. He said that the cost of health insurance would continue to rise and the city should “look for another alternative” in partnership with other municipalities and the state. Neither Beaudoin nor Felch, the two write-in candidates on the ballot in ward 2 and 6 respectively, took positions on specific issues, but both said they welcomed an opportunity to serve the community. SOCIAL SECURITY from page 2 but it will certainly be a positive for households on fixed incomes,” he said. Federal law requires the program to base annual payment increases on the Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W). Officials compare inflation in the third quarter of each year — the months of July, August and September — with the same months in the previous year. If consumer prices increases from year to year, Social Security recipients automatically get higher payments, starting the next January. If price changes are negative, the payments stay unchanged. Only twice since 1975 — the past two years — has there been no COLA. Wednesday’s COLA announcement will come as a special joint committee of Congress weighs options to reduce the federal government’s $1.3 trillion budget deficit. In talks this summer, President Barack Obama floated the idea of adopting a new measure of inflation to calculate the COLA, one that would reduce the annual increases. Advocates for seniors mounted an aggressive campaign against the proposal, and it was scrapped. But it could resurface in the ongoing talks.

Government deports record 400k over 12 months MIAMI (AP) — U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director John Morton said Tuesday his agency deported nearly 400,000 individuals during the fiscal year that ended in September, the largest number of removals in the agency’s history. Morton announced the Fiscal 2011 numbers in Washington, saying about 55 percent of those deported had felony or misdemeanor convictions. Officials said the number of those convicted of crimes was up 89 percent from 2008.
Authorities could not immediately say how many of those crimes related to reentering the U.S. after being deported. Individuals can be convicted of a felony for returning to the U.S. or being found in the U.S. after they were deported. Among the 396,906 individuals deported were more than 1,000 convicted of homicide. Another 5,800 were sexual offenders, and about 80,000 people were convicted of drug related crimes or driving under the influence.
CAIN from page 2 back in the polls. However unlikely Cain’s rise, Tuesday night’s debate made clear that none of his rivals are willing to let him go unchallenged. “I love you, brother, but let me tell you something, you don’t have to pay a big analysis to figure this out,” Perry said to Cain. “Go to New Hampshire where they don’t have an income tax and they don’t have any interest in one,” he said, referring to the state that will hold the first primary early next year. The debate was the fifth since Labor Day, and the last scheduled for nearly a month in a race that is fluid in more than one way. While polls chart a series of rises and falls for various contenders — Romney remaining at or near the top — the schedule is far from set. Florida’s decision to move up its primary set off a scramble as Iowa maneuvered to make sure its caucuses are the first real test of the race and New Hampshire works to protect its halfcentury distinction as host to the first primary. Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman skipped this debate. He was in New Hampshire instead because he’s boycotting the Nevada caucuses in the dispute over the GOP primary calendar. Nevada has scheduled its contest for Jan. 14, and Republican officials are pressuring Romney and other
Republicans to join Huntsman’s boycott if the state refuses to hold the caucuses later in the month. Romney has so far refused to join the boycott, though the New Hampshire primary, traditionally the nation’s first, is a must-win contest for him. In a conference call with New Hampshire supporters before the debate, he reassured Republicans there that he sees their primary as important. Romney also used the call to preview the line of criticism against Cain, who has been near the top of polls for over a week and has been facing intense scrutiny, particularly over his tax plan. “Most people in middle income categories will have their taxes go up” under that plan, Romney said in the call, and he said senior citizens would be hurt. In that, he and Democratic President Obama agree. In an interview with ABC News, Obama said Cain’s tax plan would be a “huge burden” on middle-class and working families. Romney, too, expected challenges, including over how he plans to help the economy if he does become president. He told the Las Vegas Review Journal’s editorial board in an interview: “Don’t try to stop the foreclosure process. Let it run its course and hit the bottom. Allow investors to buy homes, put renters in them, fix the homes up and let it turn around and come back up,”

Empty Bowls banquet at Laconia Middle School Tuesday LACONIA — The 4th annual Empty Bowls Banquet will be held at the Laconia Middle School Cafeteria on Tuesday, October 25 from 6-7 p.m. Seventh grade students in thre Laconia Middle School Integrated Arts program have been working for the last seven weeks creating clay bowls with carved leaf designs which they are donating to the event, at which participants will be asked to give a donation for the bowls, soup and bread which will be served at the banquet. Tavern 27 is donating the soup and the bread for the meal. Co-owners Leslie Judice and Ray Simanson strive to use local ingredients whenever possible in their dishes, which is why they were asked to participate last year according to Alexis Eynon, a teacher in the school’s integrated arts program.
“One of the goals of this activity is to discuss how the choices we make with the food we eat impacts our local community and environment. By choosing to eat local foods we not only give back to our community members with our patronage, but we also reduce our carbon footprint by reducing the amount of energy needed to transport and process our food,” said Enyon. Reservations are required for the event and can be made by calling Enyon at 524-4632, extension 2334, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Suggested donation is $10 to $15 per person. Participants get to keep the clay bowl as a reminder of the need in the local community and their part in helping meet those needs. Proceeds will be donated to the St. Vincent de Paul Society and the New Hampshire Region of the American Red Cross.

‘Power Lunch’ at Gunstock on October 27 Methodist Mission group provides unique access to social media experts holding Artisan Fair
GILFORD — When most people hear the term “power lunch,” they think business suits, martinis and high pressure deals. At the 3rd Annual “A-Ha!” NH Social Media Business Summit scheduled for October 27 at Gunstock Mountain Resort, “Power Lunch” means having a unique opportunity to pick the collective brains of social media experts across a wide range of backgrounds and disciplines. The event runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Fittingly enough, Public Service of New Hampshire is the sponsor of the summit’s luncheon which will see one expert per table providing their skills, expertise and advice in a smaller group setting. “Social media is an incredibly important tool for businesses throughout the state, and we’re extremely pleased to be able to connect companies with the experts who can help them move their communications efforts forward,” said Public Service of New Hampshire Economic & Community Development Manager Pat McDermott. “The ‘power’ in this Power Lunch comes from having a chance to ask relevant questions of a uniquely talented group of professionals who are setting the tone in social media every day.” The Summit, produced by Epiphanies, Inc. in coordination with the New Hampshire Division of Economic Development, will feature keynote speaker Abby Fichtner, Evangelist for Startups at Microsoft discussing how to “Follow Your Own Path” as well as: — Lou Bortone (online visibility expert) – “Let’s Get Engaged! The Dream Wedding of Online Video and Social Media” — Steve Boucher (New Hampshire Division of
Economic Development Communications & Legislative Director) – “The No Bull Pursuit of Creativity in Business Blogging” — Nancy Clark (President and Owner Girl of the Glen Group) – “The Art of Fearless Storytelling” — Walter Elly (V2 Strategic Advisors) – “Social Media in Strange Places” — Ric Pratte (Meltwater Buzz Director) – “Where the Rubber Meets the Road: The Business Impact of Social Consumers” — Corissa St. Laurent (Constant Contact) – “Wonder Twin Powers….Activate! The Email and Social Media Super Duo” — Kevin Skarritt (CEO of Flock Marketing) – “Under the Influence: The New Social VIPs and Their Power Over Your Future” — Lani Voivod (Co-owner of Epiphanies, Inc.) – “Blip, Spurt, Dash: How to ‘A-Ha!’ Yourself and Your Biz With the Social Web” — Allen Voivod (Co-owner of Epiphanies, Inc.) – “Succeed in the Social Realm, You Will: 7 Jedi Strategies for Mastering the Social Media Force” “This whole day is designed to be an electric, inspiring experience for attendees,” said event organizer Allen Voivod. “It’s a day to generate ideas, spark conversations and ignite positive, purpose-fueled action. It’s going to help you raise your marketing and success game overall, and raise your team and your business up with you.” The registration fee for the 3rd Annual “A-Ha!” New Hampshire Social Media Business Summit is $75.

TILTON — The Tilton-Northfield United Methodist Church Mission Group will be holding its’ first annual Artisan Fair and Marketplace on Saturday, Oct. 22, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Riverfront Place on West Main Street. This year’s mission is to send a team to Carrefour, Haiti in April, 2012, and funds raised at “From The Heart” will help defray those costs. This would be the third and largest team that T-NUMC has sent to join forces with a non-profit mission organization called Experience Mission. The goal for the teams that go to Haiti is to finish demolishing family homes that were affected by the earthquake of January 2010, and to remove the rubble so families may begin the rebuild process on their existing property. Experience Mission hires a Haitian worker for every American worker, so the Haitians have a stake in the rebuilding of their community and maintain their dignity. The team also visits an orphanage in Petionville and spends time with over 100 children ranging from infancy to 18 years old. Items are collected throughout the year to bring to the orphanage. “From The Heart” Artisan Fair and Marketplace is just one avenue of fundraising utilized by the T-NUMC. There will be a wide selection of artisan crafts and marketplace products that include handmade jewelry, baked goods, candies, art, Norwex, Pampered Chef items, and a wide array of uniquely crafted items. For more information, visit www.tiltonumc.org or www.experiencemission.org.

DAILY CROSSWORD TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES
by Paul Gilligan
by Darby Conley
By Holiday Mathis ing life to the fullest sometimes requires that you abandon your rational sense. It has served you well on many occasions, so you might hate to do that. However, intuition trumps ration every time. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You won’t lose your cool. Of course, being the fire sign that you are, you never had much cool to begin with. Enthusiasm, energy and the need to make things happen have made you quite hot, indeed. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It may feel at times as though you were born into certain duties and obligations. You realize that you have choices regarding these things, though you are heavily inclined to do the bidding of your loved ones. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You have to do things your way. And today, you are an amazing artist. You not only make things pretty; you make them sound and taste exactly to your liking. You will be well received. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Everything does not have to be analyzed in order to go on existing. Sometimes you forget this. Realize that there’s a point at which you need to let go and be fine with the way things unfold. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 19). Write your wish list because you’re a powerful creator this year. Partnerships shift, and you’ll find increasingly beneficial arrangements as you roll with the changes. You use your resources well and will be trusted with greater responsibilities. You’ll rise to the occasion, and the results will be lucrative. Aries and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 2, 14, 39, 26 and 34.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). The elements of your life support each other like spokes in a wheel. Your relationships help your professional picture, and your family helps your domestic scene, and it all rolls along. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You feel so perpetually in the moment that you really can’t help but attract new fans and followers -- or at the very least, big smiles from people who like you immensely. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You may catch yourself saying, “Well, that’s just the way I am.” However, you should be warned not to define yourself rashly. How you are currently is not how you will always be. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Unless you consciously take action to turn off your overworked mind, you will feel overwhelmed. You can quiet your mind by listening to music, exercising or doing nothing at all. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Ever heard of a “mash note”? The word “mash” was 19th-century slang akin to “crush,” and the note in question is a romantic request of sorts. You will be receiving one shortly. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are ahead of the game. That is not always the best position. People validate you when you are in the middle of the game because they don’t understand you when you’re ahead of it. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You like to have a good time as much as the next guy, and yet fun and pleasure are not your primary interests. You will be far more intrigued by the prospect of a profitable venture. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Enjoy-

In 1977, the supersonic Concorde made its first landing in New York City. In 1987, the stock market crashed as the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged 508 points, or 22.6 percent in value. In 1994, 22 people were killed as a terrorist bomb shattered a bus in the heart of Tel Aviv’s shopping district. Entertainer Martha Raye died in Los Angeles at age 78. One year ago: The Pentagon directed the military to accept openly gay recruits for the first time in the nation’s history. Today’s Birthdays: Former U.S. ambassador to Russia Robert S. Strauss is 93.

Genesis Behavioral Health announces 45th Annual NH GOP Vice Chair to Meeting and Auction October 25 in Meredith speak at Pemi-Baker Republicans dinner
MEREDITH — Genesis Behavioral Health will hold its 45th annual meeting on Tuesday, October 25 at 5:30 p.m. at The Inns & Spa at Mill Falls. Lara J. Saffo, Grafton County Attorney, will provide the keynote address of the meeting, which has the theme “A Balancing Act: Mental Health & Public Safety,” Maggie Pritchard, executive director of Genesis Behavioral Health, says “Last year, more so than ever before, we struggled to balance funding challenges and regulatory requirements, while ensuring access to essential mental health services in the community. Achieving this balance required maintaining and strengthening our partnerships with other health care providers, schools, police and fire departments, corrections and the towns and cities we serve. Collaboration is key to a vibrant, strong community with healthy citizens.” The Helen Holbrook Leadership and Service Award and the Dr. George “Pete” Harris Community Service Award will be presented at the meeting. Kristen Welch, director of development and communications, says that the meeting will take place

NH role in Civil War topic for New Chester Meeting
BRISTOL — The Bristol Historical Society will host the annual New Chester Meeting on October 27 at the Old Town Hall on Summer Street at 7 p.m. The land that became the towns of Bristol, Bridgewater and Hill was originally part of a huge tract of land that had been purchased in 1753. It was named New Chester because most of the owners were from Chester, NH. The three historical societies alternate hosting an annual meeting in the fall. The program for the evening will feature Jere Daniell, Professor Emeritus of History at Dartmouth College. The title of his talk is New Hampshire Towns and the Civil War. The focus of this talk is what was going on on the home front and will address both formal town actions and non-governmental community responses. Specific topics include rewarding men who enlisted; helping citizens avoid military service; ostracizing war opponents; organizing aid societies; celebrating military victories; and post war memorializing. This program is open to the public and refreshments will be available. For further information call 744-2751. This program is made possible through a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, October 19, 2011— Page 25
Dear Annie: My husband and I have an old friend whom we’ve known more than 40 years. For the past 20, we have alternated spending Christmas Eve together. “Betsy” has one unmarried adult son who has not attended our Christmas events in many years. Our daughter now spends Christmas Eve with her husband’s family. My son and his wife, along with one aunt and uncle, have always come to us for the holidays, so the events at our home and Betsy’s have been lovely adult affairs. However, this year, our son has a new baby, and they are flying in to celebrate. Yesterday, I had coffee with Betsy and asked whether she’d mind if we host again this year since it would be so much simpler with the baby. Our house is already equipped with a highchair, portable crib, toys, etc. And it would be much easier for our son and daughter-in-law since Betsy’s house is not baby-proofed and our grandson will be 11 months old and getting into things. Betsy’s response was quite hurtful. She said my husband and I are too structured and kids should just go with the flow. I didn’t back down, and she finally relented, but in an unfriendly way, saying she didn’t want to “create a crisis.” She totally does not understand how much things will change with the addition of a toddler at a dinner party. I tried to get her to see our side, but she couldn’t. Next year, we will probably go to Betsy’s, since our son will likely start coming home every other Christmas. But what do you think of her response? -- A Devoted Grandmother Dear Grandmother: Actually, we can see both sides. Obviously, it is easier if the baby is at your house. However, children are quite adaptable and can manage at other places, too, if the parents keep a sharp eye, bring along toys and have a place for the child to lie down. Parents do it every
day. Still, we wish Betsy had been more gracious in responding to your request. It has obviously created some ill-will. Dear Annie: You answered a question about how much to tip for carryout restaurant service. I have the same question about a buffet. If the employee simply fills your drink order and takes away your dirty plates, do we need to leave the same 15 percent to 20 percent tip that is suggested for a regular meal? My wife thinks a dollar tip is good enough. I think it should be at least 10 percent of the buffet cost. What do you say, Annie? -- Wondering in El Paso Dear El Paso: You win this one. The server at a buffet who fills your drink order and clears your plates should be tipped 10 percent of the tab (before taxes). Thanks for asking. Dear Annie: Thanks for printing the letter from “Glendora, Calif.,” the 87-year-old who misses his kids but understands that they are living their own lives. I needed that, as I am currently packing up after being in the Pasadena area for 78 years. I am moving into an independent living facility. I was given a trial run at the facility and loved it. There were games to play, activities for the mind as well as the body, parties on the patio and myriad other activities that will keep me plenty busy. I will also be relatively close to my grandchildren, if 400 miles is close. I have no intention of sitting on my kids’ doorstep, but do relish being able to spend holidays with them. The rest of the time will be theirs when they want me, and to fill the void, I will walk my two small dogs, play bridge, join discussion groups and enjoy participating with others in day-to-day living. Life is truly a gift to use and enjoy. -- Pasadena Nana Dear Nana: We love your attitude.
