Largest study yet on cellphones finds no link to cancer

LONDON (AP) — Danish researchers can offer some reassurance if you’re concerned about your cellphone: Don’t worry. Your device is probably safe. The biggest study ever to examine the possible connection between cellphones and cancer found no evidence of any link, suggesting that billions of people who are rarely more than a few inches from their phones have no special health concerns. The Danish study of more than 350,000 people concluded there was no difference in cancer rates between people who had used a cellphone for about a decade and those who did not. Last year, a separate large study found no clear connection between cellphones and cancer. But it showed a hint of a possible association between very heavy phone use and glioma, a rare but often deadly form of brain tumor. However, the numbers of heavy users was not sufficient to make the case.

Gadhafi killed after found hiding in drain pipe SIRTE, Libya (AP) — Dragged from hiding in a drainage pipe, a wounded Moammar Gadhafi raised his hands and begged revolutionary fighters: “Don’t kill me, my sons.” Within an hour, he was dead, but not before jubilant Libyans had vented decades of hatred by pulling the eccentric dictator’s hair and parading his bloodied body on the hood of a truck. The death Thursday of Gadhafi, two months after he was driven from power and into hiding, decisively buries the

nearly 42-year regime that had turned the oil-rich country into an international pariah and his own personal fiefdom. It also thrusts Libya into a new age in which its transitional leaders must overcome deep divisions and rebuild nearly all its institutions from scratch to achieve dreams of democracy. “We have been waiting for this historic moment for a long time. Moammar Gadhafi has been killed,” Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril said in the capital of Tripoli. “I

would like to call on Libyans to put aside the grudges and only say one word, which is Libya, Libya, Libya.” President Barack Obama told the Libyan people: “You have won your revolution.” Although the U.S. briefly led the relentless NATO bombing campaign that sealed Gadhafi’s fate, Washington later took a secondary role to its allies. Britain and France said they hoped that his death would lead to a more democratic Libya. see GADHAFI page 27

ZANESVILLE, Ohio (AP) — The exoticanimal owner who killed himself after turning loose dozens of lions, tigers and other beasts was deep in debt, and a fellow big-cat enthusiast said Thursday that he had taken in so many creatures he was “in over his head.” A day after sheriff’s deputies with highpowered rifles killed nearly 50 animals set free by Terry Thompson, the sheriff refused to speculate why he did it. Many

neighbors, meanwhile, were puzzled as to why Thompson — a man who seemed to like animals more than people — would lash out in a way that would doom his pets. However, court records show that he and his wife owed at least $68,000 in unpaid taxes to the IRS and the county, and he had two federal tax liens filed against him last year. He had just gotten out of federal prison last month for possessing unregistered weapons.

Kenny Hetrick, who has six tigers and other animals on his property outside Toledo, said he used to see Thompson at exotic-animal auctions a few times a year in Ohio. Many of Thompson’s tigers had been donated to him by people who bought baby animals that they no longer wanted once they started to grow, Hetrick said. “He really had more there than what he could do,” Hetrick said. “I don’t know what see ANIMALS page 27

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — A small earthquake hit the San Francisco area on Thursday afternoon, causing a sharp jolt on the same day Californians took part in an annual earthquake preparedness drill. The quake, with a preliminary 4.0 magnitude, struck at 2:31 p.m. and was cen-

tered across the bay from San Francisco, about two miles southeast of Berkeley. Jack Boatwright, a seismologist with the U.S. Geological Survey, described it as a “sharp little earthquake” that had a “very nice impulsive character.” San Francisco police and officials at Uni-

versity of California, Berkeley, said they had no immediate reports of injuries or damage. Tami Humphrey, director of a preschool just north of Berkeley, was outside with her students when the quake struck. see QUAKE page 26

Biden touts president’s jobs plan in speech at PSU, Federal judge grants Gary Sampson new trial enters Obama’s name in New Hampshire Primary Convicted of 3 murders, 1 in Meredith

BOSTON (AP) — A federal judge on Thursday threw out the death penalty sentence against a man convicted of killing three people in Massachusetts and New Hampshire during a weeklong crime spree in 2001 and ordered a new trial to determine if he will be put to death. Chief U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf ruled that Gary Sampson was denied his constitutional right to have his sentence decided by an impartial jury and that he is “entitled to a new trial to determine whether the death penalty is justified in his case.” The judge’s decision was angrily denounced by the father of Jonathan Rizzo, one of Sampson’s victims. “I wish I could say I was surprised. I’m not surprised, I’m extremely disappointed and phenomenally outraged at the fact that one man with the ego the size of Judge Wolf’s tried to overturn the good work done by so many people in coming to the right decision many years ago,” Mike Rizzo told reporters in a conference call. Sampson, a drifter who was raised in Abington, pleaded guilty to carjacking two Massachusetts men after each picked him up hitchhiking. He said he forced both men to drive to secluded spots, assured them he only wanted to steal their cars, then stabbed them repeatedly and slit their throats. He then fled to New Hampshire, broke into a house in Meredith and strangled a third man. In a motion for a new trial, Sampson’s lawyers argued that three see SAMPSON page 8

PSNH wants higher rates to pay for scrubber

CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire’s largest utility wants to increase customers’ electric bills starting in January to pay for its $430 million scrubber at its coal burning plant in Bow. The scrubber, mandated by a 2006 law to reduce sulfur and mercury emissions, won’t be fully operational until 2012 or 2013. But Public Service Company of New Hampshire says in documents filed with the state that customers are already getting cleaner air from it and should start paying for the equipment. The Public Utilities Commission will decide on PSNH’s request after a December hearing. The company would spread out the cost of the scrubber over 20 years. The Concord Monitor reports a PSNH spokesman says the scrubber will ultimately lower rates and save customers money.

CONCORD (AP) — Barack Obama became an official candidate Thursday for the New Hampshire presidential primary, a formality for a man unlikely to face a serious Democratic challenger in the rapidly approaching primary election. While Vice President Joe Biden submitted the required paperwork to the secretary of state on the president’s behalf, his trip served other purposes as well. He promoted the president’s latest economic plan in an early afternoon speech at Plymouth State University and offered a reminder in a state buzzing with GOP contenders that Obama cannot be taken lightly in the 2012 presidential contest. While the Republican candidates have been campaigning here for months, Obama has barely begun to shift his massive campaign apparatus into gear. And he has work to do in a fiercely independent state that may lean blue but has increasingly soured on the Democratic president. Biden did not acknowledge any political weakness when asked about poor polling numbers and instead turned the focus to the crowded GOP field. “There’s no fundamental difference between and among any of the Republican candidates,” he said. “So it’s already pretty clear whoever the candidate is what the battle lines will be in terms of how we see the future of America. And we’re prepared to take that case, and anxious to take that case and contrasting that case, to the people of the United States and the people of New Hampshire.”

Obama’s popularity has reached an all-time low in the small battleground state, according to a University of New Hampshire poll released this week. Just 41 percent of state voters said they approve of his job performance, compared to 53 percent who disapprove. “If you had to bet right now, you’d say he’d probably lose,” University of New Hampshire pollster Andy Smith said of Obama’s general election outlook in the state. In some ways, Obama has never been a local favorite. He finished a disappointing second place to Hillary Rodham Clinton in the 2008 Democratic presidential primary. And Smith points out that Obama’s numbers have plummeted among independents and members of his own party. There was little visible sign of that disappointment Thursday, however. Biden’s motorcade passed just one protester on the drive to Plymouth State University. A man held a cardboard sign that read, “Obama isn’t working.” Cheering supporters greeted Biden at the State House, where he submitted Obama’s declaration of candidacy. Earlier in the day, the vice president visited the Tilton Diner, where he posed for pictures with unsuspecting patrons and chatted with New Hampshire Gov. John Lynch and local business owner Alex Ray, both Democrats. “I know it’s a harder job than he thought it was,” Ray said, shrugging off Obama’s challenges. “But to see BIDEN page 26

Laconia schools introduce new program to help parents prepare their children for kindergarten By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — As a former kindergarten teacher, school Superintendent Bob Champlin knows well that students show up for their first day of school with a range of preparation. Some already know their colors, shapes and many letters of the alphabet, while others are new to the fundamental concepts of learning. Further, he knows that such differences in basic school readiness predict the child’s rate of success for the rest of that year and into the primary grades. With that being said, it’s understandable why Champlin last evening joined Mayor Michael Seymour in enthusiastically welcoming the parents of young children who attended the first session of “Ready for Kindergarten,” a new program which trains and equips parents to ensure their children will hit the ground learning on their first day of school. “The city is really excited about this program,” Seymour told the group of parents at the program orientation, held at Elm Street School. To be successful in kindergarten, students should have been introduced to basic elements of literacy, numeracy and proper social and emotional behavior. “We think this program is a good starting point,” he said. Champlin then added, “We think that the first teacher is mom, is dad. We think that you have the

most impact... Congratulations to all you guys for being here.” After leaving the rest of the orientation to Shannon Robinson-Beland, coordinator of the program, Champlin said the district has tried for years to start such a initiative. “We couldn’t do it on our own,” he said. To finally succeed in bringing the Ready for Kindergarten to Laconia, the third district in New Hampshire to do so, the school district partnered with the Lakes Region Community Services Family Resource Center and received financial support from the Lakes Region United Way and both the state and county level of Head Start. Ready for Kindergarten, a program developed by the Children’s Reading Foundation, costs about $150 per participating household per year to run. Thanks to the funding partners, parents participate at no cost to them. Making it available for free is a critical detail, especially in Laconia where a strong majority of students come from household whose income is low enough for them to quality for either free or reduced-price school lunches. The parents who take advantage of the opportunity will attend three classes this year, where they’ll be given age-appropriate training so they’ll know see next page


Man whose medical bills sparked spat between hospital & county sentenced to 4 1/2 years in prison By Gail OBer

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — The local man who cut off his electronic bracelet and fled to New Jersey will spend the next 4 1/2 years in New Hampshire State Prison. David Halterman, 31, was returned to jail for a minimum on one year and a maximum of two years for a parole violation yesterday. As part of the proceeding before Judge James O’Neill, he also pleaded guilty to one count of felony escape and was sentenced to an additional 3 1/2 to seven years and fined $4,000. While Halterman’s case is not extraordinary, it was, in part, his unchallenged release on a monitoring bracelet so he could seek medical care that triggered the recent dust-up between LRGHealthcare and Belknap County. In a letter sent to the county commissioners, LRGHealthcare President and CEO Tom Clairmont said he learned that jail superintendent Dan Ward would make recommendations to County Attorney Melissa Guldbrandsen about releasing inmates on bracelets who need huge amounts of medical care so the county would not responsible for the bill. The charges were hotly contested by the county from preceding page how to stimulate, through play, their child’s thinking about language, numbers, and social and emotional behavior. Parents will also be given materials necessary to engage their children in such play. Organizers hope parents will return for more training every year until their child reaches school age. Parents who sign up when their children are infants will have received 15 training sessions by the time their child enters kindergarten. For the pilot year, the program has a capacity for 35 households. All but a few of those slots are taken. Terri Forsten, assistant superintendent, said the district typically sees about 160 kindergarteners each year. The goal, she said, is to grow the program so that in coming years there will be enough room for every parent of a young child. Parents who missed the first session are still welcome to sign up for the second, which will take place on January 19 at Pleasant Street School. The final session will take place on May 3 at Woodland

commissioners, Ward and Guldbrandsen and a second letter from LRGHealth apologizing for releasing the first letter to the media and suggesting a face-to-face discussion, where the issues were seemingly resolved. Halterman, who had allegedly suffered a stroke, was released on a electronic monitoring bracelet when his attorney petitioned the court for the release so he could seek medical care and Judge James O’Neill granted it because the motion was not opposed by Guldbrandsen’s office. He had been incarcerated on a probation violation and was awaiting a Sept. 15 hearing on the violation. Halterman removed his bracelet in Manchester and was captured on his way to somewhere by the New Jersey Transit Authority at a New Jersey bus station. Charged and convicted on a number of non-violent offenses including conspiracy to commit forgery, Halterman has twice fled New Hampshire — once by jumping out a second story window while police were coming in the front door -— and was twice returned by the U.S. Marshal working with the Belknap County Sheriff Department — once from Arizona and once from Kentucky. Heights School. Interested parents should call Robinson-Beland at 524-1741 extension 15 for more information. “Playing with your kid is going to make them a stronger learner,” Forsten said, adding that the cost of the program, both in terms of dollars and time, is “such an inexpensive investment when you think of what children are seeing in return.” Statistically, children who come from wealthier homes, where parents are more likely to have a college education, tend to be better-equipped for kindergarten. However, as Champlin noted, it doesn’t cost anything to show children how to count and parents don’t need a degree to read a child a book. Although Thursday’s event was only the first session of the new initiative, Forsten was encouraged by the number of parents who signed up – and showed up – to spend a couple of hours for the sake of their child’s future. “I think it says people are eager and ready to support their children’s learning,” she said.

EduJobs bailout, Part III One of my son’s Suzuki violin teachers had a wise twist on an old saying: “If at first you don’t succeed, try something else.” The corollary? “When you do succeed, don’t stop. Do it again.” The White House could use some remedial Suzuki lessons in economics. They’ve got everything completely bass-ackward. In February 2009, President Obama signed the trillion-dollar American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Nearly $115-billion was earmarked for education. The stimulator-in-chief’s crack team of Ivy League economists predicted the law would hold the jobless rate under 8.5-percent.The actual unemployment rate in October 2009 skyrocketed to a whopping 10.2-percent. In August 2010, President Obama went back to the well. With deeppocketed public employee unions by his side, he lobbied hard for the socalled “EduJobs” bill — $26 billion more to bail out bankrupt states, school districts and public hospitals. Nearly half went to teachers, whose unions raked in an estimated $50-million in rank-and-file dues as a result. Obama’s economists had promised the jobless rate would be down to 7.9-percent by then. The actual unemployment rate in August 2010 was 9.6 percent. Now, after the Senate rejected President Rerun’s latest halftrillion-dollar stimulus proposal, Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid are pushing for a “mini” $30-billion union jobs package for teachers (with $5-billion to mollify police and firefighters unions). In addition to funding fantastical green school construction jobs (earmarked for unionized-only contractors in an industry that is 85-percent nonunion), the EduJobs III bill will purportedly “save” 400,000 education jobs at an average cost of nearly $80,000 per job. Those will be paid for with a 0.5-percent surtax on millionaires. The job-savings estimates come from the same economic wunderkinds who predicted the jobless rate today would be 7.1-percent. The actual unemployment rate reported this month is 9.1-percent. While the White House decries layoffs, the inconvenient truth is that the EduJobs III union payoff is a drop in the bucket compared to the millions laid off in the private sector. According to official government statistics, the share of the eligible population now holding a job has sunk to 58.1-percent, the lowest since July 1983. So, where did all the original EduJobs money go? One survey by the Center on Education Policy found that much of the cash went to bolster fringe benefits and administrative staff. The Fordham Institute’s education analyst Chris Tessone noted: “There is no reason to expect anything but business as usual from another round of subsidies. ... More

subsidies just protect the status quo at great expense to taxpayers.” While strapped, reckless-spending school districts bemoan the edge of the federal “funding cliff,” another chunk of the EduJobs money went to states that didn’t even need it — and had kept their teacher payrolls full through responsible fiscal stewardship. As education journalist Chris Moody reported last summer, states including North Dakota, Tennessee, Arkansas and Alaska, whose budgets are in the black, received tens of millions in superfluous school subsidies. “Arkansas,” Moody found, “has a fully funded teaching staff for the coming year, but the state will still receive up to $91-million for teaching jobs.” In Alaska, school districts had already made hiring decisions for teachers and apportioned the children in each class based upon those numbers. Nevertheless, to fulfill their teachers union-pandering mission, Obama showered the state with $24-million under the bill — money that a state education bureaucrat acknowledged “probably would not go to adding new teachers.” Other states, such as Illinois and West Virginia, raked in hundreds of millions more in EduJobs dough even though they hadn’t yet burned through 2009 education stimulus money. In fact, a total of 20 states and the District of Columbia have spent less than 5-percent of their allotments, according to Education Week magazine. An Obama education official helpfully suggested that the unneeded money be spent on “on-campus therapists” instead. Many other school districts failed to heed warnings against binging on full-time hiring sprees with temporary funding. Education Week reported this spring that the New Hanover County (N.C.) school district used $4.8-million in short-term EduJobs money to fund 88 teaching positions, in addition to more than 100 classroom slots funded with 2009 stimulus tax dollars. Obama and the Democrats blame meanie Republicans for the fiscal emergencies these districts now face. But who devoured the Beltway candy instead of eating their peas? Washington rewards bloated school pensions, Taj Mahal construction outlays and chronic local education budget shortfalls by pouring more money down their sinkholes. Instead of incentivizing fixes, politicians — dependent on teachers union campaign contributions and human shield photo-ops — incentivize more failure. The solution to this vicious cycle of profligacy? It’s elementary: Try something else. (Syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin is the daughter of Filipino Immigrants.

LETTERS Calif. study was done on one Smart Meter & it wasn’t an Elster To the editor, A letter to the editor on October 11 by Fred Anderson, president/CEO of New Hampshire Electric Cooperative concerning the Smart Meters case study in California this year by the Council on Science and Technology does not cover the entire forum this study presented and the input from the many sources who were asked for their expert opinions. Many were scientists with an abundance of credentials. The case study was done on only one meter (Itron meter) and under controlled conditions at the manufacturing facility. The Elster meter that has been placed on homes, libraries ,post offices, banks and many business places has not been tested for health effects. I have called the North Carolina Elster Solutions center and I spoke with Mr. Schaffer, a representative of the company and he informed me that the meter has not been tested for health effects. The conclusion was that the closer one is to the meter, the more radio frequency deposited in the person. A quote from the letter on October 11 stated “There is no evidence that additional standards are needed to protect the public from Smart Meters”. There are many scientists who would argue this point. One prominent name would be an epidemiologist, his name being Dr. De Kun Li, PHD. This man was invited to give his opinion to the California Council on Science and Technology concerning Smart Meters safety. The

main theme of his answer deals with standards and guidelines of the FCC. The following is a paragraph explaining the current national and international standards for safety levels and government agencies: “Currently there are no national or international” standards “ for safety levels of radio-frequency. What the FCC is currently using are “guidelines” which which have much lower certainty than a “standard”. One can go to many government agencies websites like NIOSH,EPA,FDA, etc to verify this. Therefore, for anyone to claim that they meet FCC Standards gives a false impression of safety certainty compared to “guidelines”, which implies that a lot is unknown. Another fact is that the guidelines FCC is currently using do not apply to non-thermal effects or mechanisms (e.g. cancer,birth defects.auto-immune diseases, etc.), which are the focus of the public’s concern. I would encourage everyone to read the letter by Norbeck Hankin, center for Science and Risk Assessment, Radiation Protection Division at the EPA. One can Google on the Internet all this info by going to Council on Science and Technology/California. The public needs to be informed and be able to opt out of this dangerous technology.

Hunt and kill if you like, I just don’t want to have to look at it To the editor, I have to agree with Louisa, who wrote stating that the picture of the hanging moose on the front page of the paper was in bad taste. It made me ill. In response to Terry Martin’s letter: The issue was not about hunting or

to look at a picture of a dead animal when all you want to do is to catch up on the news. Good for you if you were raised to hunt and kill. I wouldn’t do it, but I really don’t care if you do. I just don’t want to have to look at it. Nancy Bacon

LETTERS This is a great idea but still calls for supplemental appropriation

Fighting hate & taking care of other lefty peeves at same time

To the editor, On October 19 the Belknap County Commission summarily appropriated $1,500 per month for the remainder of the current fiscal year to pay for the “EXTRA or additional ” “band width” necessary to create and provide “video” arraignment between the county jail and district court. This is a cost effective idea which will save in transportation cost, manpower and expedite the process. However the commission did not comply with the law. No line item(s) was cited as being the source of the necessary funding. No communications line item was listed as unencumbered to transfer funds. No line items were listed in the County Attorney’s office. In fact no new line item was presented to account for the supplemental appropriation with the specific purpose of “video conference”. When challenged on this point, the response was “its only $1,500 a month”. When asked about going out to bid to such providers as MetroCast, FairPoint or SigTel, the answer was we have the cheapest. Clearly, this is a supplemental appropriation with a new purpose that requires funding. The source of

To the editor, Did I miss something? Several weeks back while promoting the anti-hate crimes hoopla during which the leftistgroup Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) was invited into Laconia’s schools, we were told that hatred is on the rise locally and throughout America. The genesis of the sudden push was claimed to be a so-called hate crime in Concord, where supposedly somebody wrote some mean things with a marker on the porch of the apartment of recent immigrants. The flurry of meetings, workshops, and assemblies featuring what some might term “propagandists” from the SPLC was billed as a way to be proactive here in the Lakes Region, despite the fact no such crime has occurred that anyone could pinpoint, other than perhaps through specula-

that funding could be a grant, loan, contingency or transfer(s) extra unencumbered tax dollars. The FY 2011 budget is the sum of all the individual line items that make up the annual budget. Appropriations by the County Convention shall be itemized in detail and a record thereof shall be kept by the clerk of the convention. In this chapter, an appropriation means an amount of money authorized for a specified purpose by the legislative body. (RSA 24:14, I, I-a.) No county commissioner, or elected or appointed county officer, shall pay, or agree to pay, or incur any liability for the payment of, any sum of money for which the county convention has made no appropriation, or in excess of any appropriation so made except for the payment of judgments rendered against the county. (RSA 25:15, I.) This is a good cost effective idea but is worth ignoring the law? Clearly this is a supplemental appropriation. Why doesn’t the commission simply apply to the County Convention for an appropriation to be made subsequent to the adoption of the annual county budget? ( RSA 24:14-a) Thomas A. Tardif Laconia

I just don’t want something that breaks my heart shoved in my face To the editor, In response to the letter from Mr. Martin in The Daily Sun on October 20, I am not going to make this a personal battle and will try not to insult anybody. I would just like to inform Mr. Martin that I did not eat a steak just before I wrote my letter about the picture of the dead moose. I am a “card carrying” vegetarian who does not knowingly harm anything, ever. I am offended by pictures of meat in supermarket circulars, that is why I don’t look at them. It is “moose season” and I hate every minute of any killing season when I fear having to see a dead animal strung from a tree or laying in the bed of a pickup truck. Mr. Martin states when he sees a moose he thinks “steak, yeah baby”;

when I see a dead anything, I think “poor thing”. The difference is that you aren’t offended if you DON’T see a dead animal. I try to avoid seeing the harming of any animals on television and if I happen to see something that I couldn’t avoid, it does disturb me, as the picture of the dead moose did. I, too, wish hunters “good hunting” with a quick, clean kill so that the animal doesn’t suffer. I am not anti-hunting; if one chooses to do so, so be it. I, however, choose to spend time with my loved ones in the “great outdoors” hiking. I just don’t want something that breaks my heart shoved in my face. Simple, really. The Bible Mr. Martin speaks of is a whole other story. Louisa Simpson Sanbornton

Inappropriate for a newspaper to flaunt such a photo on page 1 To the editor, I was offended by Terry Martin’s response to Louisa Simpson’s letter about the photo of the dead moose on the front page. Ms. Simpson simply voiced her opinion that such a photo is disturbing and not appropriate for such publication. I agree with her. People engage in all sorts of personal and social activities that others might find offensive or even immoral. I would not find it appropriate for a newspaper to flaunt photos of such activities on its front page. And why does Mr. Martin have to be so rude and offensive towards Ms. Simpson? I am a “card carrying” vegan, which Ms. Simpson, despite Mr. Martin’s doubts, may or may not be, and as such I find hunting to be immoral. But why do hunters often have to be so aggressively offensive in their reference to vegetarians? Most of our family and friends are meat-

eaters. But we would never be offensive towards them or denigrate them for this. And why would anyone presume that vegans/vegetarians are any less caring about humanity because of their care for non-human beings? My love of animals does not preclude my love of humanity and, yes, Mr. Martin, I would be deeply disturbed by photos of dead people in the streets or of any being that has been harmed or killed. Also, if we based our morality exclusively on the Bible and what God supposedly does or does not condone, we would still have institutions espoused in the Bible such as slavery and bigamy. The Bible says that animals are under our dominion. Why should that dominion not be the love and care of non-human animals rather than the slaughter of these creatures? Tom Stankosky Meredith

tion and generalities. Fast forwarding to this week, we learn that all the machinations have, in fact, been long in the works. In fact, we now learn that it was the shooting of Congresswoman Gabby Giffords that got this ball rolling and, of course, we all know who caused that: Sarah Palin, a (gasp!) REPUBLICAN. And the perpetrator used (BIG gasp!) a GUN! There you have it — in addition to fighting all this hate we find in America, we can take care of a few other lefty pet peeves at the same time. . . all in the name of “educating” the children. It’s almost perfect. Oh, and one last thing — do the folks down at Catholic Charities ever consider the company they keep? Doug Lambert Gilford

CRIME from page one National Incident-Based Reporting System sponsored by the Justice Research and Statistics Associations, indicates that through September 2,517 crimes were reported in the city compared to 2, 720 during the same period a year ago. Crimes are broken into two groups. Group A consists crimes against persons, property and society, which includes drug, pornography and weapons violations. Group B consists of non-violent offenses like disorderly conduct, public drunkenness, driving under the influence, trespassing and so on. Crimes against persons and property decreased, but crimes against society as well as Group B crimes increased. The number of crimes against persons dropped from 646 in 2010 to 529 this year, a decrease of 18-percent. With the sole exception of criminal threatening, which rose 7-percent, all crimes against persons declined. Simple assaults, which represent 66-percent of crimes against persons, fell by 22-percent, from 443 to 347, while aggravated assaults dropped 13-percent, from 40 to 35, and forcible rapes decreased 31-percent, from 13 to 9. The number of crimes against property has fallen 12-percent, from 1,133 to 994. However, the most common property crime, larceny, not including shoplifting or theft from vehicles and buildings, jumped 54-percent, with 316 reported cases compared to 205 in 2010. All other classes of property crime decreased. Shoplifting declined 45-percent, from 58 to 32, theft from buildings 56-percent, from 158 to 69 and theft from vehicles 22-percent, from 98 to 76. Despite the work of the well publicized “bedtime burglars”, the total number of break-ins dropped 26-percent, from 128 to 95.

Vandalism, next to larceny the most prevalent property crime, decreased 23-percent, with 251 reported incidents compared to 328 a year ago. The 129 drug violations reported through September represent an increase of 44-percent increase over the same period last year and accounted for 89-percent of the crimes against society, with the balance consisting of four reports of possession of obscene material, two of prostitution and five of weapons violations. Captain Steve Clarke, commander of the operations division, reported on the work of the drug

unit led by Detective Chris Noyes. So far this year the units has arrested or indicted 13 people and is pursuing eight outstanding warrants, all for sales of narcotics, as well as seized $2,762 in cash, two firearms and a taser. The unit has also purchased or seized quantities of marijuana, cocaine, crack and heroin, along with prescription drugs, oxycodone and morphine. In addition, the unit has discovered and closed three laboratories for making methamphetamine and assisted Belmont Police in shutting down another.

ELLACOYA from page one 75 feet — equipped with a catering kitchen and walk-in refrigeration. The pavilion would be built between the existing bathhouse and the waterfront, with setbacks in compliance with shoreland protection statutes and regulations. The plan foresees the pavilion as a venue for weddings, receptions and other functions, for which a license to serve alcohol would be required. Bald said the state is fortunate to own frontage on the lake that provides public access for both residents and visitors. Those vacationing at the RV park, he noted, “expect full access to the frontage” and a building and jetty “would certainly have a detrimental impact on the campers.” Furthermore, he said that a dock and jetty would “pose serious environmental concerns,” doubting that the project could be pursued without “conflicts with the Comprehensive Shoreland Protection Act and other laws adopted to protect lake frontage.” Finally, Bald said that the project raised “issues with winter use, adja-

cent swimming areas, and space rental issues that add to my unease.” Bald closed by telling Mullen that his department would no longer give consideration to the proposal and wished him well in finding another location for the sailing center. Last year, residents of Lake Shore Park, along with those who frequent the recreational vehicle park at Ellacoya, became concerned when Mullen hosted a fundraising event for the project during the Timberman Triathalon. Soon afterwards residents of Lake Shore Park convened a committee to monitor the project. Mullen first approached the New Hampshire Department of Resources and Economic Development (DRED), which owns and manages the state parks, about the project in 2007 and has corresponded with the agency off and on ever since. In August 2010, in response to a request from Ted Austin, the director of the Division of Parks and Recreation, Mullen prepared a written proposal. In March, he was told that Bald was considering the proposal “and hopes to make a decision by mid-April. However, in July Bald assured one of Mullen’s critics that “I have not given the organization any indication that we are supportive of going forward. and told The Daily Sun that he did not expect to making a decision on the proposal in the near future.

SAMPSON from page 3 jurors had given inaccurate answers to questions they were asked during the jury selection process. Wolf found that one of the jurors had intentionally and repeatedly answered questions dishonestly in an attempt to avoid talking about subjects that were painful to her. She never disclosed, for example, that her husband had a rifle and had threatened to shoot her, that she had ended her marriage because of her husband’s substance abuse and that her daughter had served time in prison because of a drug problem. Wolf said in his ruling that if the woman had disclosed those things during the jury selection process, the court would have found that there was a “high risk” that after listening to the evidence at Sampson’s trial, her decision see next page

LETTERS Then why is Bike Week traffic data being collected in first place? To the editor, I would appreciate something being explained to me, please. Your Bike Week numbers article of October 18 explained how the Lakes Region Planning Commission installs vehicle counters at up to 10 different spots all around Laconia to gather information on vehicle movement during Bike Week. The article then goes on to say, and I quote, “The data collected is not used, IN ANY WAY, to approximate how many vehicles, let alone people, were out and about during Bike Week.” I guess what I’d like to know is if the

LRPC pays out some amount of money to have this done and if so why? If the data is not used (in any way) to guesstimate how many people are visiting during Bike Week then why is it being collected in the first place? Is it to identify “congested” spots? I don’t have 15 years of university or anything but I betcha I can make a prediction about where the “congested” spots will be during the event. Just wondering how the money is being spent is all.

Never mind what patient needs, a government board will decide To the editor, I have to agree with the caption for one short letter here in The Sun (Oct. 20): “Allowing people to die to balance the budget is a heartless act”. Good thing that’s not happening but it reminds me that ObamaCare, when implemented, would steal $500,000,000 from Medicare. A board would decide what “cost effective

treatments” elderly patients would be allowed to receive, never mind what a person’s doctor decides was needed. Never mind what a patient needs. A government board will decide for us. No need to bother with free choice here in America anymore. Steve Earle Hill

Let’s confine dead animal pictures to the red neck publications To the editor, Sorry I did not response earlier in the week, but I just wanted to let you know how appalled I was when I saw the cover of your paper on Tuesday. I was disgusted and was almost tempted to take all the newspapers in the rack and throw them directly in the garbage. A picture of anything

dead, especially an innocent and defenseless animal, such as a moose, should not be printed in a local paper. Have them send the photos to Bow and Arrow magazine or some other redneck periodical please. Eric Moss Gilmanton

from preceding page on whether to sentence Sampson to death could have been influenced by her life experiences. Wolf said the woman likely would have been excused from serving on the jury. “In essence, despite dedicated efforts by the parties and the court to assure that the trial would be fair and the verdict final, it has now been proven that perjury by a juror resulted in a violation of Sampson’s constitutional right to have the issue of whether he should live or die decided by twelve women and men who were each capable of deciding that most consequential question impartially,” wrote Wolf, who presided at Sampson’s trial. But Mike Rizzo disagreed with the reasoning, saying that he does not believe Wolf’s decision was based on a desire to get it right. “I believe Judge Wolf is trying what he thinks is good for his image and himself, he doesn’t care about anybody else,” Rizzo said. “It’s clear it’s been on his agenda for six years based on his action since the trial ended to do everything he could to ensure this is overturned and did not happen on his watch.” “I’ve heard and seen so many things from the judge over the years to be surprised at this, but, again, unfortunately, I’m very disappointed in the outcome,” Rizzo said. “I feel terribly for the jurors who found themselves in this position through, I don’t think, any willful deceit on their part.” Sampson was the first person sentenced to death in Massachusetts under the federal death penalty law. Massachusetts, which does not have a death penalty, has not executed

anyone in more than half a century. Sampson pleaded guilty to federal charges in the carjacking and killing of Jonathan Rizzo, a 19-year-old college student from Kingston, and Philip McCloskey, 69, of Taunton, in July 2001. A federal jury in Boston recommended the death penalty after hearing weeks of gruesome testimony about the killings. Separately, Sampson pleaded guilty in state court in New Hampshire in the killing of Robert Whitney, 58, of Concord, a former city councilor. Sampson received a life sentence in Whitney’s death. “Gary Lee Sampson has admitted to the cold-blooded murders of Philip McCloskey, Jonathan Rizzo and Robert Whitney. Today’s order does not change that fact,” U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz said in a statement. Ortiz said prosecutors will meet with the victims’ families to discuss the ruling and plan to “examine all of our legal options.” Said Christina DiIorio-Sterling, a spokeswoman for Ortiz: “We are strongly considering an appeal as one of the options.” But Mike Rizzo said he was not sure whether he could go through trial again. “I don’t know how I’d do that, how to do that at the moment,” he said. “I can’t imagine dragging all that drama and all of those things, how that’d feel — to drag all that stuff to the surface again and have to deal with it for what would be the fourth or fifth time for us, given all the hearings we’ve been through.” During the trial’s sentencing phase, Sampson’s lawyers said he was abused see next page

Commission defers decision on request to make juvenile prosecutor post at court house full-time BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — The Belknap County Commission this week deferred a decision on the request by County Attorney Melissa Guldbrandsen to convert the part-time position of juvenile prosecutor to a full-time position as soon as possible. Guldbrandsen, who earlier this month said she would seek to upgrade the position beginning in January, 2012, told the commissioners that she was prompted to accelerate her request by the resignation of the incumbent juvenile prosecutor Benjamin LeDuc, who has taken a full-time position with Rockingham County. “I’m anxious to to get the position filled as soon as possible,” Guldbrandsen said, asking to post it as a full-time position in order to attract a rich pool of applicants. She said that there were sufficient funds in the department’s budget to fund a full-time salary with benefits for the balance of 2011. Apart from handling juvenile cases, Guldbrandsen said that a full-time prosecutor could also manage misdemeanors and felonies originating with the Belknap County Sheriff’s Department, which had been assigned to Lieutenant Chris Cost, who recently retired. She stressed the benefits of having a county prosecutor engaged in arraignments in district court, particularly in felony cases, which are subsequently prosecuted in superior court. Sheriff Craig Wiggin said that his department made 117 arrests last year and 89 so far this year and that felonies account for more than half the from preceding page

cases taken to court. “Having a county prosecutor there on the ground from the beginning is very advantageous and an efficient use of resources,” he said, adding that the county attorney is faced with more complex cases with increasing frequency. Guldbrandsen expressed concern about the mounting caseload of the attorneys in her department, which she said has grown from 120 to 234 indictments per attorney during the past 10 years. “I’m concerned about the workload. I’m concerned about burn-out. And I’m very worried about turnover,” she said. Without disagreeing with Guldbrandsen, Ed Philpot, chairman of the commission, reminded her that her proposal is “very, very different from what we talked about, what we authorized when we created this position.” He recalled that the appointment of a juvenile prosecutor stemmed from conversations between county and municipal officials and was designed to spare local police officers the often timeconsuming task of managing juvenile cases. He said that in the three months since LeDuc was hired there was insufficient experience and data “to support the viability the position.” Moreover, Philpot said that to post a full-time position would presume the county convention would approve it, which he said is “a presumption I’m not willing to make.” At the same time, he agreed that “this is a discussion we need to have,” but emphasized “I’m not comfortable doing anything now outside the context of the 2012 budget.”

“I feel horrible for the victims’ families,” Sullivan said. “Sampson is an admitted cold-blooded killer and he deserves the death sentence that the jury imposed,” he said. Wolf had ordered that the execution be carried out in New Hampshire — the closest state with a death penalty — to make it more accessible to Sampson’s victims. New Hampshire has a death penalty, although it hasn’t executed anyone since 1939.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, October 21, 2011 — Page 11

After hearing oral arguments in two cases, members of the New Hampshire Supreme Court yesterday took off their robes and answered questions from an audience of about 500 Lakes Region high school students assembled in the auditorium at Moultonborough Academy. The justices are (l-r) Robert Lynn, Gary Hicks, Chief Justice Linda Dalianis, James F. Duggan and Carol Ann Conboy. (Alan MacRae/for The Laconia Daily Sun)

SUPREME COURT from page one whether or not that evidence caused the jury to see an alleged domestic assault by the defendant in an unfair light. Arguments from Lisa L. Wolford, the state assistant appellate defender and assistant state attorney general Elizabeth Woodcock for the state also centered around how much force is necessary to prevent someone from taking something and whether or not a person’s criminal record can be told to the jury. The second involved the Fourth Amendment prohibitions of search and seizure. The case revolves around a police affidavit for a warrant to

search a woman’s house and the definition of “curtiledge” — an Old English term that defines an area of a person’s property that is typically used for household activity. This case centered around whether police were justified in getting a search warrant for a woman’s home to look for marijuana when their affidavits to a judge indicated they were in the tree line of her property when they smelled it but beyond a stone wall and the mowed lawn. Arguing that police were within their rights and the search was valid was Assistant Attorney General Nicholas Cort. Arguing that police came on

Students’ questions range from how each attorney decides which case he or she will try to how lawyers learn to answer the barrage of questions each faces by the five members of the Supreme Court. In a full court session, each attorney has 15 minutes to present a case and answer questions from the judges. A green light that goes from yellow to red over the 15 minutes of the time is on the lawyer’s podium. When that light turns red, that’s it — the attorney’s time is up. see next page

358 South Main Street, Laconia, NH

Hate crimes in Laconia said relatively few in number but group believes level of tolerance & civility can be improved By RogeR Amsden LACONIA — Police Chief Chris Adams says there have only been 17 incidents of what could be classified as bias related in Laconia in the last five years. But that doesn’t mean that the city has some kind of immunity to intolerance and bullying or that racial and ethnic bigotry doesn’t exist here says Adams, who was one of the speakers taking part in a tolerance and civility event Wednesday night at Laconia Middle School. He said that the most serious of those incidents involved the harrassment of an employee of one of the largest businesses in the city a few years ago and resulted in an arrest. In another incident a same sex couple who had moved to the city to escape their tormenters in another community were tracked down and driven out of Laconia. Other incidents have included vehicle vandaism, the painting of swastikas on the bridge behind City Hall in 2007 and writings on the sidewalks near the homes of refugee families. He said that although the Police

Department trains it officers to look for signs of what its incident report forms call “bias motivation” that it is difficult to determine in individual instances whether crimes are motivated by hate. “It’s not an enormous problem, but we do have hate crimes here,’’ said Adams. The Wednesday night session was a followup to a meeting held two weeks ago at the Lakes Region Community College which drew over 100 people and at which speakers from the Southern Poverty Law Center in Atlanta described the state of hate in America. Concerns raised by participants at the earlier meeting served as the framework for Wednesday night’s meeting, which attracted about 55 people who tackled a variety of issues in small group discussions. Among the issues raised in those discussions two weeks ago were the virulent nature of political discourse, the intolerance of different points of view, expressions of hate and contempt for minority groups, and how society as a whole has a staggering acceptance of see next page

from preceding page All four attorneys agreed that it wasn’t easy and knowing the law and their case were paramount. After the end of the session, the five judges — Chief Justice Linda Dalianis; Senior Associate Justice James E. Duggan; Associate Justice Gary Hicks; Associate Justice Carol Ann Conboy and Associate Justice Robert Lynn — returned to the stage without their robes and sat in chairs that were no longer behind the courtroom bench used during arguments. Each judge gave the students a little bit of personal background that, in part, explained how they came be to appointed and confirmed to the high court. Questions included one student who wanted to know how each justice kept their own personal feelings from cases. “If we care, we’re off,” said Dalianis, meaning that if any judge has a relative, friend or previous knowledge of a case then they recuse or take themselves out of the discussion and deliberation. Duggan explained further that judges have strong opinions and that should a judge disagree with others, then he or she can issue a separate ruling. “Emotions don’t drive us but neither of us are blank slates,” said Conboy. One student wanted to know if the judges “hung out” with each other, to which they all laughed and responded there are frequent lunches, occasional golf games and some annual picnics and holiday parties but for the most part each judge has his or her own life. “We spend a lot of time together during the day,” said Duggan. One students asked if any of them had ever regretted a ruling. “We wrestle with that every day,” said Dalianis who also noted that if judges are continually “secondguessing” themselves then they don’t

belong on the bench. Dalianis also said judges are not swayed by public opinion. When one students asked why celebrities get treated differently, Dalianis said they wouldn’t in her court but that fortunately, New Hampshire doesn’t have a lot of celebrities. When one student asked if the judges thought the judicial system was becoming more of a part of people’s regular lives, Dalianis said she thought that, sadly, more people were becoming less and less engaged by the justice system and what it represents. She said the judge’s road tours were specifically designed to generate interest in the justice system to younger people. Duggan had some words for the media. He said the judges don’t behave like many television judges, but said that more importantly, some television shows have allowed people to think they can act as their own lawyers when they really shouldn’t. Lynn said that since the inception of the U.S. Constitution there has become more and more laws and statutes, many of them delving into places like the Internet and technology, places and concepts the founding fathers could never had imagined. One students asked if they had “pet peeves” and all agreed that disorganized lawyers were at the top of the list. Lynn said that his is, in his estimation, the general public doesn’t understand how many different sides there can be to a story. “Just because somebody says this is what happened, it may not be,” Lynn said. Hicks said his pet peeve was when all people aren’t treated with dignity and respect. The rest of the judges nodded in agreement and the question-and-answer session ended.

A story in Thursday’s edition of The Daily Sun mistakenly reported that the Visiting Nurses of Meredith and Center Harbor care for about 50 to 70 people annually.

Music Festival Visiting Artists program starts next week

CENTER HARBOR — The New Hampshire Music Festival’s Visiting Artists Program next week will treats classical music lovers to a passionate performance by violinist Adrian Anantawan, joined by gifted pianist Amy Yang. Anantawan will visit elementary schools in Laconia, Meredith and Moultonborough on Violinist Adrian Anantawan Thursday and Friday, October 27 and 28 to share his talent and his inspiring story and will perform in a free community concert at 7 p.m. on Friday, October 28 at the Congregational Church of Laconia. Anantawan was born without a right hand and uses a special prosthetic device to hold the bow. When he was nine his mother convinced him to take up violin as a way to focus his energy and do better in school. Instead, it changed his life. He began to audition for youth orchestras and won various competitions in his native Canada. The Curtis Institute’s violin professor, Ida Kavafian, described his audition for that institution: “I said to another member of the violin faculty, wait until you hear the Mozart A Major Concerto which has this adagio that take enormous control and very mature musicianship. When he played it, I looked over at the faculty member and saw that she was really, really moved by it, and I had to fight back the tears because it was so profound, so profoundly beautiful.” In 2006, Anantawan graduated from Curtis and won scholarships to attend the National Art Center Young Artist Program, studying with Pinkas Zukerman.

CENTER HARBOR — As planning moves forward for its 60th anniversary season, the New Hampshire Music Festival is pleased to announce the appointment of Frank Pesci as interim executive director. In this capacity, Pesci will seek to solidify the foundation of the Festival’s operations, customer service, communications and fundraising, ensuring the success of the Festival’s interaction with its supporters for seasons to come. Citing the NHMF’s grounding in the community as one of the oldest cultural institutions in the state, as well as its commitment to bringing world class performers to the residents of the Lakes Region, Pesci says he sees his appointment as “a unique opportunity to draw in the supporters who have molded the Festival’s story for

decades and to tell that story to new audiences that will sustain the Festival’s mission for the next 60 years.” Pesci joins the Festival with a history of operations, community relations and development success, having served several performing arts and education-focused non-profit organizations including the Brookline Music School (Brookline, MA) the Suzuki School of Newton (Newton, MA), the Musical Theatre Institute for Teens (Washington, D.C.) and the Bethesda Academy of Performing Arts (Bethesda, MD). An accomplished performer in the classical, liturgical, jazz, rock, and musical theatre idioms, Pesci is currently a staff singer at Trinity Church in the City of Boston, and is a self-published composer of choral music, art song, chamber music, concert music and opera.

TILTON — The Energy Committee of Sanbornton will be hosting a free workshop on October 21 at 7 p.m. at the Winnisquam Regional High School Cafetorium. The workshop will be presented by members of the energy committee, two of whom are Building Performance Institute Certified Building Analysts, who specialize in home energy audits. They will cover the techniques that do-it-yourself homeowners can use to inexpensively tighten up their homes, make more efficient use of energy and save money. Subjects covered will include: air sealing, insulation, indoor air quality, heating system safety concerns, and financing/government resources/ rebates that are available. Discussions will identify the most cost effective actions the homeowner can take in an effort to conserve energy. The workshop is open to the

public and will be of help to a wide range of people from inexperienced beginners who don’t think they can afford to weatherize, all the way to homeowners who want to do an extensive energy saving upgrade to their home by having a professional energy audit and professional installation of energy efficient heating systems and building envelope improvements. This is the first in a series of workshops to be held. Future workshops will focus on renewable energy. The series is conducted as part of a grant that was awarded by the New Hampshire Office of Energy and Planning for energy outreach and education. In addition the grant is helping to fund activities in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) program and an energy technologies curriculum that will be available to the students at the Winnisquam Regional High School next year.

More than 40 students taking part in ‘Sound of Music’ production at GHS

GILFORD — Roger’s and Hammerstein’s “The Sound of Music” will come alive on the stage at Gilford High School this November. This will be the first time since 1990 that the school has presented this classic family musical. After hosting heavily attended auditions in early September, director Matt Demko, vocal director Denise Sanborn and choreographer Sarah Sedgley selected a cast of over 40 talented students and began rehearsals right away. Sanborn has been working with the cast on their vocal harmonies for the classic music and lyrics written by Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein. Sedgley will be providing choreography for many of these great tunes, including: “Do-Re-Mi,” “Sixteen Going On Seventeen” and “So Long Farewell.’’ Heading up the technical side of things will be long time technical director Scott Piddington,who leads a wonderful crew of GHS students. Tammy Denver will lead a crew of dedicated parents to provide the costumes, and GHS band Director Lyvie Beyrent will direct an orchestra of high school students and community members. The talented cast will feature Grace McLaughlin as Maria Rainer and Parker Ayer as Captain Georg von

Trapp. Featured roles will be played by Sam Drouin (Elsa), Corwin Leber (Max), Zack Tousignant (Rolf) and Sarah Cook (Mother Abbess). The von Trapp children will be played by Heather Hunt (Liesl), Roland DuBois (Friedrich), Caitlin Houston (Louisa), Nate Drouin (Kurt), Emily Hanf (Brigitta) and Gilford Middle School students Cat McLaughlin and Kaia Langathianos as Marta and Gretl. “We had a lot of success with last year’s production of ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.’ We wanted to go in a different direction with this year’s show and do a classic family musical,” said Demko. “This is one of the best known musicals out there that has stood the test of time. “The Sound of Music”is still as popular today as it was in 1959. This musical has it all – great characters, excellent songs that people recognize, and one of the best and most inspirational endings ever seen in a musical. “The Sound of Music” has a wide appeal and all who see it will enjoy it. Show dates will be Friday and Saturday evenings, November 11-12 and 18-19 at 7 p.m. All performances will take place in the GHS auditorium. Tickets will be $7 for adults and $5 for students and senior citizens and will be available at The Gilford Village Store and Greenlaw’s Music starting in November.

Preservation Hall Jazz Band at PSU

The Preservation Hall Jazz Band will perform at Plymouth State University on Friday, October 28. (Courtesy photo)

PLYMOUTH — The Silver Series for the Performing Arts at Plymouth State University will present the iconic Preservation Hall Jazz Band at 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 28. The legends of jazz will perform in the Hanaway Theatre at the Silver Center for the Arts. Ben Ratliff, writing for the New York Times said, “Even before Hurricane Katrina the Preservation Hall Jazz Band had been reviving. Now, touring heavily, making new records and collaborations … the band has become worth another hearing.” The band’s collaborations with the likes of Del McCoury, Tom Waits, Ani Defranco and Paolo Nutini demonstrate that jazz standards can be as progressive as any other musical form. Recruiting younger players and expanding its repertoire, the PHJB has modernized its approach while keeping the old-time faith; hiring musicians whose strong links to the pioneers of jazz assure the music’s authenticity. This combination makes for a multigenerational mix with appeal to a range of musical constituencies. Band members are Ben Jaffee, creative director and tuba; Mark Braud, trumpet and vocals; Charlie Gabriel,

clarinet and vocals; Clint Maedgen, saxophone and vocals; Joe Lastie Jr., drums; Freddie Lonzo, trombone and vocals and Rickie Monie, piano “They don’t venture into the recording studio often … but when they do, they make it count,” according to Jeff Giles at Pop Dose. “For proof, look no further than Preservation: An Album to Benefit Preservation Hall [their latest release], an album whose matter-of-fact title doesn’t even hint at the many treasures it holds in store. …Andrew Bird joins in for “Shake It and Break It,” Tom Waits lends his distinctive growl to “Tootie Ma Is a Big Fine Thing,” Jim James (as Yim Yames) shows up for “Louisiana Fairytale,” and Del McCoury stops by for “After You’ve Gone.” And that’s just within the first five tracks — before the album’s finished, you’ll also hear from Ani DiFranco, Pete Seeger, Richie Havens, Merle Haggard, the Blind Boys of Alabama, Dr. John, Steve Earle, Buddy Miller, and more,” Giles said. Tickets for the Preservation Hall Jazz Band performance at the Silver Center are $35-25 for adults, $33-23 for seniors and $25-15 for youth at the Silver Center Box Office, 535-2787 or (800) 779-3869. Tickets are also available online at silver.plymouth.edu.

MEREDITH — The Greater Meredith Career Partnership Program will receive a Gold Circle Award from the New Hampshire Partners In Education on Tuesday, October 25 at the Center of New Hampshire Convention Center. The Career Partnership Program is a school-to-work initiative of the Greater Meredith Program, Meredith’s Main Street program. The Career Partnership Program began about five years ago from a collaborative effort between the Inter-Lakes School District and the Greater Meredith Program and included Dr. Phil McCormack (Superintendent of SAU #2), Rusty McLear (then GMP Chair and owner of the Inns & Spa at Mill Falls), Jack Carty (then School Board Chair), Chris Gribben (Inter-Lakes High School Guidance Counselor) and Jeanie Forrester (then

Executive Director of GMP). The Gold Circle Award celebrates the valuable partnerships that schools and volunteer programs have with local businesses. By receiving volunteer and other resource support from organizations in their community, schools are able to balance resources to provide their students with the best educational experience possible. “I was pleased to submit the application for The Gold Circle Award because I know first-hand all the great partnerships that have been created and the value the Career Partnership Program has brought to our business community and our young adults,” said Forrester. For more information about the event or The Career Partnership Program, contact Rhonda Hanaway, Executive Director, at 279-6162, ext. 304, or email at rhonda.hanaway@interlakes.org.

Lakes Region United Way sets $1.23 million fund raising campaign goal LACONIA — The Lakes Region United Way community fundraising drive has begun and the organization has set what LRUW President Jack Terrill says is an aggressive campaign goal of $1,230,000. He says that a dedicated volunteer team is working diligently and rallying resources to help meet that goal. “For the past few months, these enthusiastic volunteers have been doing a lot of homework, meeting regularly and reaching out to local supporters. They are eager and prepared to conduct the most successful campaign in our history and, most importantly, committed to improving the quality of life for all residents,’’ said Terrill. He said the United Way is focused on education, income and healthy communities in central New Hampshire. There is a blend of experience for this year’s effort. Marti Ilg of Lakes Region Child Care Services will continue as Co-Chair, joined by Laura DiFonzo of Melcher and Prescott Insurance. Returning on the team are Deborah Jordan of Northway Bank and Susan LaFlamme of 3M/Innovative Paper Technologies, along with newcomers Cynthia Bodah of Laconia Savings Bank, Christopher Fecteau of Northway Bank, Tracie Fitzpatrick of LRGHealthcare, Shannon Robinson-Beland of Lakes Region Community Services, Family Resource Center of Central NH, and Julie Rothemund of Lakes Region Child Care Services Assisted by LRUW Campaign Director Judi Taggart, this team will provide campaign support based on their experience, training and increased knowledge of the positive effect United Way has on our community. Ilg will continue to provide leadership to these efforts. “As a campaign team and speakers bureau member, I have the opportunity to talk with people about the importance of early learning. The prosperity of our region depends on our ability to steward the next generation of lifelong, eager learners. A 3 year old today is only 3 once, so their development isn’t going to wait for the future. I encourage people to get the greatest return on their donation by investing in early childhood programs. Investing wisely in children and families will be paid back

through a lifetime of responsible citizens.’’ says Ilg. Co-chair DiFonzo added, “On the campaign team we primarily support Lakes Region employers in their employee fundraising campaigns. We also engage and inform people about the LRUW support that is taking place in their own back yards. Seeing the number of Lakes Region employers that encourage social responsibility in the workplace is heartwarming. On a personal level, it’s all about keeping the place where I work, live and raise our family a healthy place.”

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Dear Annie: My husband and I have been married more than 40 years. We are retired, have no debts and are financially comfortable. We have a great family. Due to age and medical conditions, my husband is almost completely impotent. But he won’t stop trying. I have done everything I can think of to discourage him. I dress modestly day and night. I rarely, if ever, let him see me undressed. I turn off any TV program that makes any reference to love or sex as soon as he comes into the room. I never participate in any pastime that he enjoys. I always make sure I am reading or applying hand lotion when I come to bed. I push him away anytime he approaches me. I never respond to his inquiries as to why he is so repulsive to me or what he could do to make his approaches less objectionable. I don’t want it to be “better.” I want him to stop. I suggested separate bedrooms, but he said, “Then move out.” In spite of all this, every six or eight weeks, he wants to grope me for half the night. He expects me to respond -even participate. When I don’t, he gets all upset, moody and sometimes terribly angry. I have normal, sexually oriented dreams, but I want him to leave me alone. What more can I do? -- Sick of It Dear Sick: Do you object because your husband wears you out trying to have sex when he is not able? Or is it that you simply don’t want sex anymore? If the former, we think you should talk to his doctor about available treatments and consider that once “every six or eight weeks” could be something you lovingly tolerate. If the latter, you won’t get much sympathy here. We know many women past menopause aren’t interested, but we believe intimacy is an important part of marriage, and when one partner makes unilateral decisions about sex, it leads to

trouble. You are being unfair to your husband by dismissing his needs. And don’t kid yourself. Even after 40 years, being constantly rebuffed and denied can damage your marriage. Please remember how much you love your husband, and reconsider your attitude. Dear Annie: My wife and I divorced after 25 years of marriage, and she moved to the East Coast. Her former best friend, “Karen,” with whom she no longer has contact, is also divorced and still lives in this area. I would like to ask Karen out, and I’m pretty sure she would accept. However, I am concerned about propriety, as our families were quite close when we were all married. We even vacationed together, although there was never anything inappropriate between Karen and me. What should I do? -- Sleepless in L.A. Dear L.A.: If either of you has been divorced less than a year, any romantic involvement with Karen will set tongues wagging about what was going on during your respective marriages. If that kind of gossip doesn’t bother you, it certainly doesn’t bother us. Dear Annie: You recently printed a letter from “Lonesome,” a 65-year-old single woman who was having difficulty making friends. Among other suggestions, you mentioned Elderhostel. I just want to let you know that this organization now has a new name: Road Scholar. Aside from foreign travel, it also offers many interesting trips in the United States. -- Hanover, N.H. Dear Hanover: Thank you for the correction. In 2009, Elderhostel changed its name to Road Scholar (roadscholar. org) and continues to offer educational travel opportunities for those over 55.

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your energy is tireless now because the more you do the more you feel like doing. And when your intention is to do what’s mutually beneficial, small details work themselves out and all goes smoothly. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Sometimes you’re afraid to want what you want because you feel it makes you seem too greedy. Rest assured, you won’t be taking from others to add to your scene. You want others to succeed right along with you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll enter a new social or professional realm before the year is over. You’ll be gathering influences and getting your look and presentation together over the next few days. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You don’t mind stress. Tension actually helps you become your very best. You create something useful and beautiful from unlikely or even opposing elements. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A sensitive and creative creature, you are also easily hurt by anyone who doesn’t respond as you would like to your ideas. Today it’s particularly important only to share with your trusted supporters. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 21). This year brings more fun than you’ve had in a while. You’ll make a new friend in November, and soon this influence will affect your daily life in a positive way. You’ll learn a method or follow a strategy straight to a better income. Someone blossoms in the bounty of your love and nurturing. In May, you’ll win a contest. Taurus and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 15, 32, 11 and 20.

TUNDRA

ARIES (March 21-April 19). When you were younger, you trusted people because you had to. There were no options other than to take what adults provided. You will trust the world in this manner once again. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Complete old business before starting new projects. This will require some cleanup, and it also may involve you giving away some things you know you’ll never use again. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). What you really desire is space, time and liberty. If you let them, minor details have a way of clouding your open blue sky. Stay focused on all of the ways you are free. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Consider that you may have been sent to earth by angels who believe it their most important responsibility to watch over you and guide you. You’ll get evidence to support the theory today. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You might need to lighten up a bit. It will help you to think of your life as a kind of video game. You have choices, and when things don’t go right, you can go back and play again. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It’s frustrating when you look for things and don’t find them. However, you’re willing to go through the frustration because when you do land on the treasure, it brings such immense satisfaction. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re powerful. Also, you know more about the future than you think you do. Write down your wants, and put the list away to be read at the end of the year. You’ll be amazed by how many of your wants will be obtained by then.

Page 22 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, October 21, 2011

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, Oct. 21, the 294th day of 2011. There are 71 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 21, 1879, Thomas Edison perfected a workable electric light at his laboratory in Menlo Park, N.J. On this date: In 1797, the U.S. Navy frigate Constitution, also known as “Old Ironsides,” was christened in Boston’s harbor. In 1805, a British fleet commanded by Adm. Horatio Nelson defeated a FrenchSpanish fleet in the Battle of Trafalgar; Nelson, however, was killed. In 1917, members of the 1st Division of the U.S. Army training in Luneville, France, became the first Americans to see action on the front lines of World War I. In 1944, during World War II, U.S. troops captured the German city of Aachen (AH’kuhn). In 1959, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, opened to the public in New York. In 1960, Democrat John F. Kennedy and Republican Richard M. Nixon clashed in their fourth and final presidential debate in New York. In 1967, the Israeli destroyer INS Eilat was sunk by Egyptian missile boats near Port Said; 47 Israeli crew members were lost. In 1971, President Richard Nixon nominated Lewis F. Powell and William H. Rehnquist to the U.S. Supreme Court. (Both nominees were confirmed.) In 1986, pro-Iranian kidnappers in Lebanon abducted American Edward Tracy (he was released in August 1991). In 1991, American hostage Jesse Turner was freed by his kidnappers in Lebanon after nearly five years in captivity. One year ago: Eight current and former officials pleaded not guilty to looting millions of dollars from California’s modest blue-collar city of Bell. Today’s Birthdays: Actress Joyce Randolph is 87. Author Ursula K. Le Guin is 82. Rock singer Manfred Mann is 71. Musician Steve Cropper (Booker T. & the MG’s) is 70. Singer Elvin Bishop is 69. TV’s Judge Judy Sheindlin is 69. Actor Everett McGill is 66. Musician Lee Loughnane (Chicago) is 65. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is 62. Musician Charlotte Caffey (The GoGo’s) is 58. Movie director Catherine Hardwicke is 56. Actress-author Carrie Fisher is 55. Singer Julian Cope is 54. Rock musician Steve Lukather (Toto) is 54. Actor Ken Watanabe is 52. Actress Melora Walters is 51. Rock musician Che (chay) Colovita Lemon is 41. Rock singer-musician Nick Oliveri (Mondo Generator) is 40. Christian rock musician Charlie Lowell (Jars of Clay) is 38. Actor Jeremy Miller is 35. Actor Will Estes is 33. Actor Michael McMillian is 33. Reality TV star Kim Kardashian is 31.

Living memorial created for Lakeport woman

With funds received in memory of Mildred E. Ladieu added to the Henry Rogers Fund, which is designated to gardens, plantings and holiday decorations of Torrey Park and the Lakeport Freighthouse, Lakeport Community Association members recently added hydrangea bushes, recommended by her daughter, Eileen, to their Torrey Park gardens in her memory. Ladieu, who graduated from the Laconia School of Nursing in 1938 and was employed at the Laconia Hospital as a private duty nurse, retired after many years of nursing and lived independently at her Lakeport home until her death at age 94. She had a passion for reading and gardening. Shown in the photo are her son, Jim Ladieu, grandson Sage Ladieu and great-granddaughters, Aspen and Alexis Ladieu and LCA members Jerry Horn and Brenda Moulton during the Lakeport Community Association memorial service at Torrey Park.

Lawyer for Laconia man accused of raping Nashua jogger says client was lost & asking for help BY JOSEPH G. COTE NASHUA TELEGRAPH

NASHUA – The man police say attacked and sexually assaulted a woman jogging through a residential neighborhood was disoriented and asked for help at a local school before police found him, according to his attorney. Charles Keefe, a defense attorney representing 22-year-old Stefan Wollmar, of Laconia, said during Wollmar’s arraignment on Monday that Wollmar had been wandering around Nashua and was disoriented when he ended up at Pennichuck Middle School early on the morning of Oct. 14. He asked staff there to call police because he needed help, Keefe said. Wollmar was taken to the police station and was eventually arrested that night and charged with aggravated felonious sexual assault, police said.

Police were first called to Marie Avenue around 5:30 a.m. Oct. 14 for a reported assault. The victim, a 33-year-old woman, said she was jogging when she was suddenly knocked to the ground and raped by an unknown man, police said. The woman was able to run home and call police before she was taken to the hospital and treated and released for minor injuries, according to Nashua Deputy Police Chief John Seusing. Seusing said, a couple of hours later, another person called police to report a suspicious person. Police responded and found Wollmar and took him to the police station, Seusing said. Wollmar has denied the police allegations, Keefe said. He will appear at a probable cause hearing at Nashua’s district court on Oct. 27, according to court documents. Wollmar was held over the weekend on $100,000

cash bail. That was reduced to $30,000 following his arraignment and he posted bail later that day, according to a court clerk. Police said they believe Wollmar was staying with friends in Nashua, but they don’t know how long he was in the city or any connection to him and the Marie Avenue neighborhood, Seusing said. “There is no indication whatsoever the person we arrested knew the victim,” Seusing said. “Wrong place, wrong time.” The residential area is popular for joggers, police said. Seusing said the random and violent nature of the crime set police on the attacker’s trail immediately, with several detectives working the case and all uniform officers on the lookout for potential suspects. “We worked this case very hard,” he said. The Class A felony with which Wollmar is charged is punishable by up to a 15-year prison sentence, plus fines, Seusing said.

Biden munched on the fries ordered by Gen Johnston of Claremont. “It was delightful. I told him he should eat more,” she said noting she has not yet made a decision on who she will vote for. Obama is polling at about 41-percent in the state right now. Waitress Allison Gingras of Tilton said it was exciting to have a sitting vice president at the counter. “It’s nice to see candidates come into the dinner,” she said. Barbara Zeckhausen of Laconia said she was thrilled to see the vice president and had her picture taken with him.

QUAKE from page 2 “We felt it pretty good. It felt like a drop and then a shake,” she said, adding: “The kids didn’t even notice.” More than 8½ million people signed up to participate in the preparedness drill, which took place at 10:20 a.m. and was labeled the Great California ShakeOut. The quake also came almost 22 years to the day after the Loma Prieta earthquake struck the Bay area during the 1989 World Series. The magnitude-6.9 quake killed 63 people, injured almost 3,800 and caused up to $10 billion damage. It Seattle resident Joaquin Miller was in Oakland when Thursday’s shaking began. He said he first thought it was coming from a passing big rig.

BIDEN from page 3 this day I support Obama. He hasn’t kicked his campaign into gear yet.” Indeed, Republican presidential candidates have flooded the state in recent months in anticipation of the Granite State’s presidential primary, the first such contest in the nation and now expected for early January. Secretary of State Bill Gardner confirmed that Obama is the only Democrat who has qualified for the ballot so far. The GOP field will include more than a half-

dozen contenders. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has solid leads over Obama in head-to-head matchups, and Rep. Ron Paul of Texas is locked in a statistical tie with Obama. Smith suggested that Obama’s struggles in New Hampshire offer a warning for the president’s reelection prospects. “It matters who the candidate is, but even against Ron Paul he’s not at 50 percent,” Smith said. “He could bounce back up. But it’s not good right now.”

Biden & Lynch stop at Tilt’n Diner for piece of pie BY PAULA TRACY NH UNION LEADER

TILTON — Vice President Joe Biden stopped by a New Hampshire diner Wednesday afternoon for a plate of apple pie and some retail politics, surprising the early afternoon crowd. Biden came to New Hampshire to officially file paperwork for President Barack Obama to enter the first-in-the nation primary and to address Plymouth State College students on jobs. But between stops, he met for a bite to eat at the Tilt’n Diner with Democratic Gov. John Lynch and Alex Ray, owner of the establishment.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, October 21, 2011 — Page 27

GADHAFI from page 2 Other leaders have fallen in the Arab Spring uprisings, but the 9-year-old Gadhafi is the first to be illed. He was shot to death in his ometown of Sirte, where revolutionry fighters overwhelmed the last of is loyalist supporters Thursday after weeks of heavy battles. Also killed in the city was one of is feared sons, Muatassim, while nother son — one-time heir apparnt Seif al-Islam — was wounded and aptured. An AP reporter saw cigaette burns on Muatassim’s body. Bloody images of Gadhafi’s last moments raised questions over how xactly he died after he was captured wounded, but alive. Video on Arab teleision stations showed a crowd of fightrs shoving and pulling the goateed, alding Gadhafi, with blood splattered n his face and soaking his shirt. Gadhafi struggled against them, tumbling and shouting as the fightrs pushed him onto the hood of a ickup truck. One fighter held him own, pressing on his thigh with a air of shoes in a show of contempt. Fighters propped him on the hood as hey drive for several moments, apparntly to parade him around in victory. “We want him alive. We want him live,” one man shouted before Gadhafi was dragged off the hood, some fighters ulling his hair, toward an ambulance. Later footage showed fighters rollng Gadhafi’s lifeless body over on the avement, stripped to the waist and a ool of blood under his head. His body was then paraded on a car through Misrata, a nearby city that suffered a rutal siege by regime forces during he eight-month civil war that even-

tually ousted Gadhafi. Crowds in the streets cheered, “The blood of martyrs will not go in vain.” Thunderous celebratory gunfire and cries of “God is great” rang out across Tripoli well past midnight, leaving the smell of sulfur in the air. People wrapped revolutionary flags around toddlers and flashed V for victory signs as they leaned out car windows. Martyrs’ Square, the former Green Square from which Gadhafi made many defiant speeches, was packed with revelers. In Sirte, the ecstatic former rebels celebrated the city’s fall after weeks of fighting by firing endless rounds into the sky, pumping their guns, knives and even a meat cleaver in the air and singing the national anthem. The outpouring of joy reflected the deep hatred of a leader who had brutally warped Libya with his idiosyncratic rule. After seizing power in a 1969 coup that toppled the monarchy, Gadhafi created a “revolutionary” system of “rule by the masses,” which supposedly meant every citizen participated in government but really meant all power was in his hands. He wielded it erratically, imposing random rules while crushing opponents, often hanging anyone who plotted against him in public squares. Abroad, Gadhafi posed as a Third World leader, while funding militants, terror groups and guerrilla armies. His regime was blamed in the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland and the downing of a French passenger get in Africa the following year, as well as the 1986 bombing of a German discotheque frequented by U.S. servicemen that killed three people.

ANIMALS from page 2 his deal was, but he was in over his head.” On Tuesday, Thompson, 62, threw open the cages at his animal preserve and committed suicide. His body was found near the empty cages with a bite on the head that appeared to have been inflicted by a big cat shortly after Thompson shot himself, Sheriff Matt Lutz said. It appeared his body had been dragged a short distance, Lutz said. Deputies killed 48 animals — including 18 rare Bengal tigers, 17 lions and eight bears — in a hunt across the

Ohio countryside that lasted nearly 24 hours. Only a monkey was still missing, and it was probably killed by one of the big cats, Lutz said. Thompson had run-ins with his neighbors and the law over escaped animals and conditions at his preserve. But whether he acted out of desperation or vengeance in setting the animals loose was unclear. “I know how much he cared for them, and he would know that they would be killed,” said Judy Hatfield, a family friend who visited the farm many times and said it wasn’t unusual to have a monkey jump on her lap.
