New Hampshire buckles down for Hurricane Sandy NEW HAMPTON (AP) — New Hampshire awaited the worst of Hurricane Sandy with caution and curiosity Monday, with the governor declaring a state of emergency and urging all drivers to get off the road and gawkers gathering at the coast. The National Weather Service said the main impact of the

storm was to reach the state around mid-afternoon and continue through early Tuesday. The storm was expected to bring wind gusts of up to 70 mph, rainfall ranging from an inch to 4 inches and coastal flooding. Utilities were reporting over 99,000 power outages by

Monday evening. The state Emergency Operation Center was open at level 3 — 4 is the highest. “Our first goal has to be public safety,” said Lynch, who asked businesses to release workers early, if possible, and directed state agency heads to send non-essential workers

As expected, Superstorm Sandy turned & took dead aim at New Jersey ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — A furious Hurricane Sandy made the westward lurch that forecasters feared and took dead aim at New Jersey and Delaware on Monday, washing away part of the Atlantic City boardwalk, putting the presidential campaign on hold and threatening to cripple Wall Street and the New York subway system with an epic surge of seawater. Gaining speed and power through the day, the storm knocked out electricity to more than 1.5 million people and figured to upend life for tens of millions more. It clobbered the boarded-up big cities of the Northeast corridor, from Washington and Baltimore to Philadelphia, New York and Boston, with stinging rain and gusts of more than 85 mph. As it drew near, Sandy moved closer to converging with two cold-weather systems to form a hellish superstorm of snow, rain and wind. Forecasters warned of 20-foot waves bashing into the Chicago lakefront and up to 3 feet of snow in West Virginia. Airlines canceled more than 12,000 flights, disrupting the plans of travelers all over the world, and storm damage was projected at $10 billion to $20 billion, meaning it could prove to be one of the costliest natural disasters in U.S. history. President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney canceled their campaign appearances at the very height of the race, with just over a week to go before Election Day. The president pledged the government’s help and made a direct plea from the White House to those in the storm’s path. “When they tell you to evacuate, you need to evacuate,” he said. “Don’t delay, don’t pause, don’t question the instructions that are being given, because this is a powerful storm.” Sandy, which killed 69 people in the Caribbean

Firefighter injured in Wolfeboro WOLEBORO (AP) — A firefighter has been injured while fighting a fire at a vacant home in Wolfeboro, N.H. Authorities say 23-year-old Thomas Trask was taken to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. His condition and the nature of his injury were not immediately known. The Wolfeboro Fire Department responded to the fire shortly after 2 a.m. Sunday. They had it under control about 3:30 a.m. The state fire marshal’s office is assisting the department with investigating the cause of the fire.

before making its way up the Atlantic, began to hook left at midday and was about 40 miles south of Atlantic City by evening, moving west-northwest at almost 30 mph — faster than forecasters expected. Pete Wilson, who owns an antiques shop in Cape May, N.J., at the state’s southern tip and directly in Sandy’s path, said the water was 6 inches above the bottom edge of the door. He had already taken a truckload of antiques out but was certain he would take a big hit. “My jewelry cases are going to be toast,” he said. “I am not too happy. I am just going to have to wait, and hopefully clean up.” New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said people were stranded in Atlantic City, which sits on a barrier island and was mostly under water late Monday. He accused the mayor of allowing them to stay there. With the hurricane fast approaching, Christie warned it was no longer safe for rescuers, and advised people who didn’t evacuate the barrier islands to “hunker down” until morning. “I hope, I pray, that there won’t be any loss of life because of it,” he said. By early evening, the hurricane was expected to barrel into southern New Jersey or Delaware. That would put New York City and Long Island along its dangerous northeastern wall, facing perhaps 11 feet of water. While the hurricane’s 90 mph winds registered as only a Category 1 on a scale of five, it packed “astoundingly low” barometric pressure, giving it terrific energy to push water inland, said Kerry Emanuel, a professor of meteorology at MIT. “We are looking at the highest storm surges ever recorded” in the Northeast, said Jeff Masters, meteorology director for Weather Underground, a private forecasting service. “The energy of the storm surge is off the charts, basically.”

In New York City, authorities worried that salt water would seep through the boarded-up street grates and through the sandbags placed at subway entrances, crippling the electrical connections needed to operate the subway. Authorities also feared the surge of seawater could damage the underground electrical and communications lines in lower Manhattan that are vital to the nation’s financial center. Hours before landfall, there was evidence of the storm’s power. A construction crane atop a luxury high-rise in New York City collapsed in the wind and dangled precariously over the streets. Forecasters said the wind atop the building may have been close to 95 mph. Off North Carolina, a replica of the 18th-century sailing ship HMS Bounty that was built for the 1962 Marlon Brando movie “Mutiny on the Bounty” went down in the storm, and 14 crew members were rescued by helicopter from rubber lifeboats bobbing in 18-foot seas. Two other crew members were missing. They were believed to be wearing survival suits capable of protecting them from cold water for 15 hours. At Cape May, water sloshed over the seawall, and it punched through dunes in other seaside communities. Sandy also tore away an old section of Atlantic City’s historic boardwalk. “When I think about how much water is already in the streets, and how much more is going to come with high tide tonight, this is going to be devastating,” said Bob McDevitt, president of the main Atlantic City casino workers union. “I think this is going to be a really bad situation tonight.”

NEW YORK (AP) — Stock trading will be closed in the U.S. for a second day Tuesday as Hurricane Sandy bears down on the East Coast. Bond trading will also be closed. The last time the New York Stock Exchange was closed for weather was in 1985 because of Hurricane Gloria, and it will be the first time since 1888 that the exchange will have been closed for two consecutive days because of weather. The cause then was a blizzard that left drifts as high as 40 feet in the streets of New York City. The New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq said

they intend to reopen on Wednesday and would keep investors updated. Much of the East Coast was at a standstill Monday as the storm approached. Mass transit and schools were closed across the region ahead of the storm hitting land, which was expected to happen later Monday. Areas around New York’s Financial District were part of a mandatory evacuation zone. The storm surge is already pushing water over seawalls in the southern tip of Manhattan. see MARKETS page 16

Avoiding Problems With City’s move to entice employees to waive health Advisors insurance benefit paying off with $155,000 savings Financial As I am sure many of you already know, Financial AdLACONIA — City Manager Scott Myers reported yesterday that the city has been spared almost $155,000 in health insurance costs during the 20122013 fiscal year as eleven employees have chosen alternative coverage. Earlier this year the City Council offered a stipend of $3,200 to employees with proof of alternative health insurance. The stipend is paid quarterly in increments of $800 at the end of each three-month period, not in advance to ensure the city is not exposed should an employee leave the employ of the city. The city contributes 88 percent of the cost of health insurance, which amounts to $8,188 for the singleperson plan, $16,376 for the two-person plan and $22,436 for the family plan. One person opted out of the single-person at $8,188, seven from the two person plan at $114,632 and three from the family plan at $67,308 for a total of $190,128. Less the stipend payments of $35,200, the net savings amount to $154,928. However, Myers cautioned that the numbers are


volatile since several factors cause the budgeted appropriation for health insurance to fluctuate during the year. If the circumstances of employees choosing alternative coverage change, leaving them without health insurance, they are entitled to enroll in the city’s program. Likewise, employees who marry or have children during the year would likely enroll in a more two-person or family plan. And employees may enroll in one of the plans offered by the city each year on their anniversary. Nevertheless, the projected savings amount to 5.7-percent of the $2.7-million budgeted for health insurance. Currently there are 35 employees enrolled in the single-person plan at a cost to the city of $286,580, 36 enrolled in the two-person plan at a cost of $589,536 and 82 enrolled in the family plan at a cost of $1,839,752 . Myers noted that this year the cost of health insurance premiums decreased and employees contributed a greater share of it. — Michael Kitch

vice is only as good as the Advisor who gives it. “This is not rocket science”! When dealing with anything related to money it is normal to encounter problems. Take for example investments: Individuals have various expectations on how their money should be returned to them in terms of gains. Stock investors are in many cases looking for greater returns than let’s say C.D. investors. Whatever your expectations are, they should be in line with your Advisor’s guidance and your reasonable expectations. What I’m trying to communicate to you is that you have a responsibility to yourself to understand what is being proposed to you by your advisor. At DAK Financial Group, LLC I ask my clients to sign an agency “Statement of Understanding”. We want our clients to understand what they are purchasing and this also helps them understand that we care and want them to have products purchased by our firm that genuinely help them. Unfortunately, some investors have had a negative experience with financial professionals. In every case, the investors made one or more of the following three mistakes and left him or herself open to a problem. Please avoid these mistakes in your dealings: Never make a check payable to the advisor for investments or insurance. The only time you should ever make a check payable directly to an advisor is for payment of consultation fees. For an investment or payment to an insurance carrier always make the check payable to an investment firm that is not owned by the advisor. Never place funds in an opportunity that is controlled by the advisor. For example, if the advisor is putting together a few investors to by an apartment building and the advisor is the general partner, then he or she has total control over your funds. Never invest in an illiquid investment. Stocks, bonds, mutual funds, annuities and insurance products are typically liquid. You can get out of these contracts (subject to vesting or surrender charges if any). Exotic investments which promise high returns, such as oil and gas deals, real estate deals and equipment leasing deals are not typically liquid. In other words you are pretty much stuck with these deals if they go south. It’s my personal opinion that whatever vehicle you choose to use, you as the purchaser should be familiar with the inner workings of the arrangement you make with the company or companies you do business with. You should make sure to do your due diligence to protect yourself from scans. All the best; DAK. ••• Dave Kutcher is a contributing writer for FOX Business News!

Then & now We are mindful of the adage that, those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it. As we approach the upcoming election, an election that may actually be the most important in our lifetime, it is worth taking the time to reflect on how history has dealt with issues similar to what we face today. Franklin D. Roosevelt was inaugurated into office in March of 1933, during the Great Depression. He had run for office on the promise of a “New Deal” and, one of his first acts was to sign into law, the National Recovery Act (NRA). That act called for industry, labor, and government to work together to eliminate competition, and to regulate prices, wages, hours, and so on. Roosevelt’s aim was to have a “government planned economy”. The NRA spurred growth and power for the unions but did little to improve the economy or employment. In 1935, the Supreme Court ruled that the NRA was unconstitutional. However, Roosevelt had it quickly replace by the Wagner act which incorporated many of the items that were in the NRA. Many of Roosevelt’s programs essentially put the citizenry on the government payroll — the Office of Price Administration (OPA), the Works Progress Administration (WPA), the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), and others. In spite of the myriad programs designed to get people working, until World War II started, unemployment ranged from 14.6 percent to 23.6 percent. Roosevelt increased the top tax bracket from 63 percent up to 94 percent of earnings. While he is most noted for the passage of the Social Security System, which was the first giant step towards a socialist structure, it must be noted that his actions in expanding the federal government and imposing it into the business community, did not increase private sector jobs. It is believed that those actions actually extended the life of the Great Depression. The next bit of historical perspective is about Lyndon B. Johnson, who was a powerful senator from Texas, and the Senate majority leader for six years while Eisenhower was president. He was selected to be John Kennedy’s running mate in the 1960 election, and he became president when Kennedy was assassinated. Johnson took the next truly giant steps toward socialism as he was able to pass legislation for Medicare and Medicaid, the 1964 Civil Rights act, immigration reform, the “War on Poverty”, and other social programs. To provide for the initial funding of these programs, Johnson convinced Congress to authorize use of unspent surplus Social Security funds for the programs. In exchange for those funds, government secu-

rities were put into the proverbial Social Security “lock box”. While each of the programs can be argued on its own merits, the accumulative costs of them have contributed greatly to the financial crisis that exists today. As far back as 2004, the Cato Institute calculated that the “War on Poverty” had consumed over $9 trillion, with little change in the level of poverty to show for it. The fundamental problem being that those on poverty are most often those just entering the work force and/or those who have left it, the elderly. This year, Medicare announced that it estimated its un-funded liabilities to be in excess of $38 trillion. The Social Security and Medicare programs will be greatly impacted by the fact that 10,000 people per day are retiring and those numbers will continue for the next nineteen years as “Baby Boomers” take their retirement. The IOU’s in the Social Security lock box will have to be redeemed, which mean that during that period, new securities will be sold in order to have the funds to redeem them. Under President Kennedy, the top marginal tax rates were reduced from 91 percent down to 70 percent. The drop in rates caused a substantial increase in tax revenues. During his tenure, President Johnson increased the rate from 70 percent up to 77 percent. Unemployment numbers were excellent, ranging from 3.8 percent to 5.2 percent. President Johnson’s social programs were an enormous step towards a socialist system but, as you can see, the cost of those programs is being passed down to future generations. When President Obama was elected, with the help of a Democrat controlled House and Senate, he followed the lead of Roosevelt and Johnson and took the third giant step towards socializing this country. He did so by passing the Affordable Care Act, aka “ObamaCare”. With his party having total control over the Legislative Branch, Obama had the opportunity to address the economy and employment issues, which had been devastated by the bursting of the housing bubble. Rather than address those issues, the president chose to spend his capital in pursuit of ObamaCare. The bill was forced through both houses without a single Republican vote. Essentially, ObamaCare expands Medicare into covering the entire population. There can be no doubt that rationing of medical care will result, and services will be curtailed. While there is currently a shortage of primary care physicians, that condition will only worsen as bright young people choose other professions rather that becoming government-controlled physicians. When Obama was inaugurated, see next page

LETTERS GOP reps supposed to represent us, not these outside interests To the editor, I am supporting Kate Miller, Sandy Mucci, Lisa DiMartino and Bill Johnson for Meredith and Gilford State Representatives. Tuesday November 6 is a very important day. Each of us has a civic duty and a freedom to get out and vote. Over the past two years I like many have become shocked and dismayed at our legislators in Concord. When a legislator is elected and sworn in they take a pledge to you and me, to our state and country. That is, “I do solemnly swear, that I will bear faith and true allegiance to the USA and the State of N.H. and will support the constitution thereof, so help me God.” No where in that oath does it say, I pledge to Tax Payer Protection, Cornerstone, ALEC, Grover Norquist, Bill O’Brien, Jason Sorens or any other outside group. I reproach our current legislators as they pledge to these self-consumed ideologues. They are elected to represent us, the constituents, not outside interests. During the campaign in 2010 we heard the words from many, “I am running to create jobs, shrink government and restore the N.H. advantage.” Lost jobs, increase government by attempt-

ing to destroy our state Constitution through giving more control to the Legislature and loosing the N.H. advantage are not acceptable. Supporting others before considering what is best for our communities is not acceptable. I said it in 2010 and I will say it again, our legislators need to work together to create pragmatic solutions to our issues here in N.H. Loose the hate and divisiveness, work as a team player and leave ideologies at the Statehouse door. Those have added to this campaign, “preserve freedom.” America is free and freedom is defended every day by our service men and women. Think about what freedom really is. I am supporting Kate Miller, Sandy Mucci, Lisa DiMartino and Bill Johnson to represent Meredith and Gilford in the Statehouse not just because I am a Democrat, but because they are ready and willing to reach across the partisan divide and work with their colleagues, together in the best interest of ours our state and our future. Cutting services, education and revenue is not a recipe for a strong, vibrant and attractive state. Carla Horne Meredith

You’re telling us former superintendent doesn’t support education? To the editor, I am a big supporter of Jeanie Forrester, our current state senator. In my opinion Jeanie has gone to Concord and served her district (2) with hard work and has represented us as she promised she would. I just can’t sit by and read letters that distort her record of the last two years. It seems to me the supporters of Jeanie’s opponents seem to forget how and why she was elected. Two years ago the voters of N.H. fired the majority of the Democrats in the N.H. House and Senate and took all five seats on the Governors Council. In our district for example, the voters realized we need a change, and that change was Jeanie Forrester, and Jeanie beat and incumbent senator. I just read a letter form Lisa Merrill. First of all I would dispute the event she attended in Danbury was the only public speaking opportunity that Mrs. Merrill could attend; there were other events she could have attended that were on the weekends and not in the mornings. At the end of her letter she

stated that she can’t support a candidate who doesn’t support education. As she stated in her letter that retired school superintendent Phil McCormack supports Jeanie, as does long time school board member Jack Carty. Is Mrs. Merrill telling us that Mr. McCormack, after spending his many years as a teacher, principal and school superintendent doesn’t support education? Also after all of his years on our school board, Mr. Carty doesn’t support education either? Personally, I think that this is nothing but pure politics. I will be retiring in December, and I know I can’t afford to survive going back to the tax and spend Democrats. I would like to ask all of you voters out there that care about our district and state, please support Jeanie Forrester for another term. Her record is clear, she understands the importance of having a strong and balanced approach to our great state and Jeanie has proven the has our backs for the long term. L. Michael Hatch, Meredith

LETTERS No scapegoat this time, Mr. President; stand up and take blame To the editor, Just one of the many, many reasons that our president has proven he is incompetent to serve four more years. Now we know that President Obama and his administration have been blatantly lying to all Americans for two weeks. They knew just 24 hours after the brutal murders of three brave Americans and Ambassador Stevens who, was tortured, sodomized and dragged through the streets, that it was a terrorist attack on our embassy on the anniversary of 9/11. To save face, just before the election, they chose to cover up the truth and insisted it was because of some video. Now we learn that “his White House,” as the president calls it, did know of the possible attacks on the embassy. They chose to ignore this and did absolutely nothing to beef up the security to protect these men. We have also learned of a diary that was written by the ambassador where he stated he feared for his life and told of the dire lack of security due to monetary cuts. All the apologizing and sweet-talking our president has done with these ruthless countries has had absolutely no affect. They hate America and always will. They want to see our demise. The left was so willing to credit Obama for killing bin Laden, now let’s see if they have the honesty to credit him with the death of these Americans. He is the Commander-in-Chief and these atrocities happened under his watch. He needs to stand up and take

the blame. Mr. President, there is no scapegoat this time! These unfortunate acts are the consequences of electing a president whose experience in dealing with terrorist nations is no better than yours or mine. This is what happens when our media jumps in bed with a candidate instead of vetting him honestly. I realize that the television viewers, who only watch mainstream media, are most likely unaware of these lies. This is unfortunate and due to the dishonest censorship of the radical left media news outlets ABC, MSNBC, CBC, NBC and all of their affiliates. Did our American citizens ever imagine they would see the day when the mainstream media chooses to keep the truth from us, just as they do in the communist and socialist countries? Well the sad fact is, that day has arrived. We can no longer trust this left wing media and believe we are seeing the real news as it happens. Why would any American want the media keeping them in the dark by censoring news? This is detrimental to the security and safety of all Americans. It is time to take a stand against the mainstream media and tell them to stop this deceitful censorship of the news and let them know that you want the news reported truthfully as it happens! For the preservation of our great country, we must vote this president out! Linda Dupere Campton

Mr. Lamb thinks another $30 to register your car is no big deal To the editor, I recently attended a political candidate forum where Robert C. Lamb, Jr., was one of the candidates speaking on why the Democrats should retake control in Concord. One of the “facts” presented by Mr. Lamb was that since the Republicans have taken control in January, 2011, New Hampshire now has 148 “Red Listed” bridges — implying that Republicans have allowed the deterioration of our bridges and infrastructure. He asserted that 148 “Red Listed” bridges are simply unacceptable and he suggested that the gas tax could be raised to pay for the repair of roads and bridges. He further berated the Republicans for cutting the $60 vehicle registration fee in half to $30. He gleefully stated that he would have no problem paying a $60 registration fee, which could be used for infrastructure repair. I decided I would check Mr. Lamb’s facts. Department of Transportation records reveal that when the Democrats left office in 2010, there were 148 “Red Listed” bridges. At the end of 2011, the last full year reported, with Republicans in power, there were 140 “Red

Listed” bridges, eight less than when the Democrats held power. Additionally, the $60 vehicle registration fee was allowed to “sunset” on June 30, 2011. These repairs were done without adding any new fees or debt to the taxpayers of N.H. and working within a balanced budget. In addition to presenting accurate facts, I suggest that Mr. Lamb needs to take notice that many people in this economy are hurting. Now is not the time to raise taxes or fees of any type. Perhaps in Mr. Lamb’s world, $30 is insignificant; however, when I told one friend of mine about Mr. Lamb’s suggestion to raise the vehicle registration fee another $30, his response was “Doesn’t he realize that’s two days food for my wife and me?” I suggest to Mr. Lamb that he redirect his efforts from attaining perfect attendance at political forums and educate himself on the needs of New Hampshire’s everyday folks.

from preceding page the unemployment rate was 7.6 percent. Since that time the rate has ranged from 8.1 percent to 9 percent, except for this month when it dipped to 7.8 percent. However, that rate is somewhat suspect as it does not include a report from one of the largest states. Like Roosevelt, President Obama has spent considerable resources without diminishing or

eliminating the basic economic and jobs problems. And, like Johnson, he has presided over a huge expansion of government with no defined plan on how to pay for it. Your vote may decide if we are to be a government of, by, and for the people, or, if we are to follow the European model on the road to serfdom. (Bob Lamb is a resident of Laconia.)

It doesn’t matter where Lisa Merrill sends her kids to school To the editor, In Diana Thomas’ recent letter, she inappropriately admonishes Inter-Lakes School Board member Lisa Merrill for speaking out against the voucher bill while also sending her children to a private school and for her concern about public school enrollment. Lisa’s children all attended public school through the 8th grade. She has been, and always will be, supportive of public schools. Lisa has championed creating a level playing field between public and private schools by creating more opportunities for children in public school — such as increasing computer utilization as well as the use of software applications to promote the educational development of all students. Lisa Merrill also researched grants and brought a proposal to Principal Bennett for the 7th grade students to participate in the national Lexus Eco challenge which included a component of the 7th grade science curriculum. She led a team of students to win the Lexus Eco challenge, by teaching them how to: 1. leverage the Internet for data research, 2. create a survey and poll the public, 3. create a PowerPoint presentation, and 4. present that presentation to the Lexus Chal-

Bob Lamb’s commitment to public education sets him apart To the editor, On November 6, New Hampshire voters will once again join with millions of other Americans across this country to exercise one of our most precious rights — the right to vote for the candidates of our choosing. I am writing to urge you to support Bob Lamb to serve as our next State Senator to serve the residents of Senate District 2. I have had the opportunity to hear Bob speak at a number of public events over the past months. He has impressed me with his honesty, integrity and his willingness to engage with community members of all stripes to listen to our views and concerns. Over and over again, Bob Lamb has demonstrated that he has the skill set to be a truly great Senator in the New Hampshire State Senate. His financial and business acumen will be especially important in the upcoming budget cycle that the new legislature will tackle in January.

The cost per person is $20 and limited seating is available.

But fundamentally, I think the most compelling reason to support Bob Lamb in his bid for the Senate is his commitment to public education in New Hampshire. Like Bob, I believe that the future economic development of this state requires a passion and commitment for public education at all levels, and especially at the university and community college level. We simply must be forward thinking about training and retaining an educated workforce to ensure that businesses will be encouraged to come to New Hampshire. Bob Lamb often lauds his own public education and the opportunities that it has created in his own success in life as the driving force behind his focus on educational opportunities for all. For these and many other reasons, please join me in voting for Bob Lamb on November 6. Elizabeth O’Neil Meredith

lenge Board of Judges electronically. As the immediate past president of the Inter-Lakes PTO, I have had a front row seat observing all of the school board members. There has not been a member who has been more actively involved and unselfish with her knowledge and personal time than Lisa Merrill. My son was a part of the Eco Challenge “Weed Busters” team and I witnessed first hand the benefits of that involvement. The team learned hands on the benefits of community service and hard work. This was an experience that money could not buy, and was a first of its kind initiative in the I-L school system. It really does not make a difference where Lisa Merrill sends her children to school. Her actions show that she is fully committed to doing what she can to ensure that the I-L students are provided outstanding educational experiences. This is why in the March 2012 school board election she won reelection to a second three year term on the school board by a large margin. What matters is what the parents think — and they clearly think that Lisa has their children’s best interest at heart. Mary Williams Meredith

LETTERS Rich kid, poor kid . . .it doesn’t matter; loss to local school is same To the editor, I attended a candidates’ night last evening in Northfield and listened carefully to the Democratic candidates for state representative and Senate. They all opposed the new education tax-credit program (and, oddly, spoke out against voucher programs as well, which aren’t even available to N.H. parents). The reason the Democrats gave for opposing these programs was their belief that the tax-credit program would, in some unique way, take valuable dollars from the public schools. They clearly don’t understand the tax-credit program or state aid to local districts. Two of the Democratic candidates, Lorrie Carey and Andy Hosmer, admitted to sending their own children to private schools. They do this presumably because those private institutions provided a better fit for their children than their local public schools. But when they made that decision, the state stopped paying adequacy aid for their children. The state doesn’t pay for empty chairs. If any student leaves the public school for any reason, state aid stops for that student. This is true regardless of the parents’ income or reason for removing the child.

The new tax-credit program provides low- and moderate-income parents a way to send their children to the school that best fits their child. There is no difference in state funding to local districts when wealthy parents remove a child using their own money for private school or a lowerincome parent does the same thing using the new scholarship program. The question we must ask anyone in opposition to the tax-credit scholarship program is this: Why is it acceptable for wealthy parents to take children out of public schools but not acceptable for low- or moderateincome parents to do the same? If the answer involves “taking money away from public schools,” then you know that person doesn’t understand — or chooses to misrepresent — the tax-credit scholarship program. The fact is that whether a rich kid leaves a public school or a poor kid leaves, state money to that school stops. Democratic candidates: Why are you against poor kids having the same chance as rich kids to attend the school that will give them the best opportunity for success? Rep. Gregory Hill Northfield

What Jeanie Forrester advocates is school choice for all kids To the editor, Bob Lamb claims that Jeanie Forrester voted to reduce public school aid. This is not true. She voted to give parents a choice about where their child is to be educated. The education tax credit bill, which Jeannie Forrester supports, comes from business donations to a nonprofit scholarship organization. A student receiving such a scholarship can attend any school he/she likes, whether it’s a private school, another public school, or home schooling. Since funding for public schools depends on the number of students attending that school, under-performing schools have a reason to oppose education tax credits-except that when kids leave with a scholarship, the school dis-

trict has a budget protection cap, and can’t lose more than one-quarter of 1 percent of its total budget (meaning they keep no less than 99.75 percent of their budget) no matter how many students leave. So there isn’t cause to worry-unless it’s about the students forced to stay in an under-performing school. What Jeanie Forrester advocates is school choice. She wants to give children a chance to attend a better school, if they can qualify for it, and if their parents think it’s the best thing to do. No child should have to stay in a substandard school simply so the school district can collect a few more tax dollars. Jackie Colthart Ashland

and community colleges in order to develop a workforce that has the skills and background demanded by today’s employers. Bob Lamb also understands that New Hampshire has to develop a long-term plan to address the state’s infrastructure; our roads, our bridges, and broadband expansion. As we all recognized during our tenure in the New Hampshire State Senate, Bob Lamb understands that health care costs are a major cost driver that thoughtful leadership in the Senate must address. We all understand how important it is to have a state Senator serve who understands the importance of working in a bi-partisan manner to move New Hampshire forward-something that is sorely lacking in the current legislature. Bob will be single-minded in his focus on jobs and the economy, and won’t be side-tracked by the agenda of out-of-state interests.

To the editor, Voters in Alton and Gilmanton: Alton and Gilmanton will be electing a total of three representatives, two from District 5 and one representing Alton, Barnstead and Gilmanton. As we learned in the 2010 election, the political views of the candidates are very important in guiding the future of New Hampshire. The three Republicans (Holmes, Burdick and Cormier) running for office are extreme conservatives by their own admissions. They have rigid social agendas, such as shrinking government without regard for the consequences, cutting the state budget and pushing state-mandated financial obligations on local communities (thereby raising your taxes), imposing right to work on our laborers, interfering with women’s rights, repealing gay marriage, cutting funding for public education, including UNH, limiting health care options by refusing to accept federal funds for Medicaid,

and on and on. Remember what happened in Concord for the past two years under Speaker O’Brien. His party was mean-spirited and divisive, carrying out a nationally directed agenda for extreme conservatives. Do you want a repetition of the same thing? That’s not the New Hampshire we know. The three Democrats (Chase, Henry and Smith) want to focus on restoring our economy, strengthening our government to provide essential social services, supporting our schools and protecting individual rights. They put people, not ideology, first. They want to work together with others to achieve consensus and get us back on the right track. To promote healthy cooperation and good governance, please vote for Democrats to represent our area: Deb Chase, Jean Henry and Roberta “Tess” Smith. Nancy Scribner Robert Ronstadt Gilmanton

LETTERS Ed Philpot is passionate about right way to spend tax dollars

Tilton needs its own voice in Concord; let’s elect Jane Alden

To the editor, As Election Day draws nearer, I ask you to join me in supporting incumbent Belknap County Commissioner, Ed Philpot, for re-election. Why should you give him your vote? I have known Ed since my husband and I moved to the Lakes Region 10 years ago. We first met Ed when he and I were involved in the ski program at a local elementary school, where we monitored the extracurricular activity and progress of more than 40 students on the Gunstock slopes. I began to know Ed, then the school board chair, as a volunteer in the community and dedicated father of three children. Passionate about the right way to spend the tax dollars in our community, Ed has a track record of fiscal responsibility. He spearheaded the facilities plan that renovated three schools, both on time and under budget. That was the school board chair that impressed me. Another attribute that makes him the most solid candidate for the long-term vision for our county is his knowledge of our local community. He knows what’s going on in our towns and cities. He owns a business here, a home also. He and his wife, Dianne, have educated their three children

To the editor, I write this in support of Ms. Jane Alden in the upcoming election to represent the Towns of Tilton and Sanbornton. I have come to know Jane through her work as chair of the Planning Board as well as her position on the Budget Committee here in Tilton. She is a tireless advocate for seniors and the disabled. She is informed on the issues that matter to our area and I have no doubts as to her honesty and integrity. We don’t always agree,

in our local public schools. He shops where we do, buys what’s on sale like we do, struggles and sometimes succeeds like we do. What many of you don’t know, however, is that Ed came from humble roots. The son of a laborer and a laborer himself (before law school), Ed turned his young-adult construction job into a law career specializing in building and construction litigation. Ed recognizes, appreciates. . . and remembers. . . the struggles of working families and communities. He is a mindful gatekeeper of finances. Even though he can chide with the best lawyers I know, he is a gentle listener. He is an avid arbiter and evaluator of local opinion, local fact, and local circumstance. Ed knows our communities’ issues and resident struggles because he lives them, every day. A vote for Ed Philpot only makes sense in these economic times because he knows our problems and opportunities, and possesses sound economic principles to manage the county business, with a track record to prove it! I ask that you join me in casting your vote for Ed Philpot for County Commissioner on Nov. 6th. Kim Weeks Laconia

Nice to see Forrester running campaign free of negative content To the editor, I intend to vote for Jeanie Forrester in the upcoming election for our state senator. Three major reasons support my decision. 1. Her established record of outstanding performance on executing the representational elements of the job. Much of a senator’s job is to be available and responsive to her constituent’s needs for guidance in dealing with the maze of state rules and regulations as well as the plethora of agencies who apply them. Jeanie seems to be extremely responsive to constituent’s queries and her record of being “on the job” is outstanding. We’re clearly getting our money’s worth in this regard. Let’s continue to benefit from her dedication and performance. 2. The significant improvement in

financial discipline which she and others put in place during her first term. State spending increased about 24 percent from 2006 to 2010. We now have a two year budget which is truly balanced (without accounting gimmicks) and has a reduction in the use of general funds of 11 percent. Again, let’s keep the folks who made this happen. 3. She is running a campaign free of negative content. After experiencing the last two local campaigns (and the current national one), I have began to despair the course of our democracy. Jeanie seems honestly committed to not go down that path. Reason enough to make one want to help her succeed. Thomas Wilson Center Harbor

but she always has a well thought out position that she is willing to discuss. She is the only person in the race that is from Tilton and she understands the issues that are particular to the community. Tilton needs and deserves a voice in Concord and for me, Jane Alden is that voice. Please join me in supporting her at the polls and vote for Jane Alden for state representative. Joe Jesseman, Selectman Town of Tilton

Elect Phil Preston to House; I know he’s caring, honest & fair To the editor, My vote is for PHIL PRESTON for STATE REPRESENTATIVE in District 9. Phil has lived in New Hampshire for 35 years and I have known him for most of them. He has always been involved with town and government affairs. He has served on land use boards, as town and school district moderator and presently serves as selectman. I serve on the selectboard with Phil and he has always been caring, honest and fair, doing what is best for the town and the residents.

Phil believes that government should be prepared to help citizens whose health or other circumstances puts them at risk. He is always accepting of other people’s point of view. Phil is concerned about providing an adequate education for children, protecting the environment, and he will work to restore civility and respect in the New Hampshire Legislature. Vote for Phil Preston, he is the right person to do the job and to do it right! Jeanette Stewart, Chairperson Ashland Selectboard

Set record straight; Jeanie initiated & helped arrange info sessions To the editor, In response to a recent letter to the editor from Kay Anderson regarding Jeanie Forrester’s involvement with the public information sessions on the new voter ID law: This isn’t a public endorsement of Jeanie, but simply to set the record straight. Jeanie initiated the public information sessions by reaching out to each of us and asking if we would be interested in providing this opportunity to our residents. Jeanie worked to arrange the time, date, and location

and coordinate it with the Deputy Secretary of State, Dave Scanlan. She sent out an e-blast to town clerks and town officials to notify them of the public sessions and she issued a press release to the newspapers to invite the general public. Jeanie attended each of the sessions. Her communities are a priority and she works very hard to serve us. Cindy Reinhartz, Town Clerk Tilton Kerri Parker, Town Clerk Meredith

I like Bob Lamb; he’ll will make sure Northern Pass never happens To the editor, In the race for State Senate between Bob Lamb and Jeanie Forrester three things seem to me to be important: 1. Bob Lamb was a senior financial guy is a big bank and really knows his way around money and budgets. Concord doesn’t.

2. It’s time we made decisions for New Hampshire folks that are based on N.H. facts and figures rather than the Tea Party ideologies. 3. I don’t like Northern Pass and Bob Lamb will make sure it doesn’t happen Vote for Bob Lamb for State Senator John Thompson, Center Harbor

DON’T BE AFRAID OF YOUR DENTIST ! It is estimated that at least 85 million Americans avoid the dentist due to dental phobias. If you fall into this category, there is hope for you. There are strategies that can help you overcome your anxieties while you are at the dental office. Gentle relaxation techniques and soothing imagery are just two of them. For people who may need further soothing, certain prescribed medications taken before the appointment have a calming effect that makes the dental visit more comfortable. If you consider yourself afraid of the dentist, you need to make your feelings known to the dentist and the staff. You may have special concerns that they can accommodate. Perhaps you want to know what’s going on each step of the way or perhaps you don’t want to know what is going on at all! You may simply want someone who is very gentle, takes things slowly, and doesn’t push you into things you’re not ready for. All of these preferences can be accommodated with ease once they are understood. The only thing that should scare you about dentistry is what happens when you avoid it. Happy Halloween! George T.

Carye family decision to preserve 387-acre woods praised By RogeR Amsden THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

Electric companies playing catch up with power outages LACONIA — The strong winds and sheets of rain that announced the arrival of Hurricane Sandy on Monday afternoon knocked power service to thousands of residents, while crews with Public Service of New Hampshire and the New Hampshire Electric Cooperative were preparing to work through the night to correct the outages. PSNH reported that 61,000 of its customers had reported power outage as of 5 p.m. on Monday, with most of the outages affecting customers in the southern tier of the state. The power company expected the additional help of 550 line and tree crews, who traveled from as far as Texas, to bolster local crews and contractors. New Hampshire Electric Cooperative stated at 4:30 p.m. that 8,000 members were without power, representing about one-tenth of the cooperative’s

membership. The power cooperative serves 115 towns in the state. The number of NHEC outages fluctuated throughout the day as crews sought to keep pace with Sandy’s damage. The peak of outages for the cooperative occurred at 3 p.m., when a tree fell across a transmission line in New Durham, cutting power to substations in that town as well as neighboring Alton. NHEC was anticipating the assistance of 30 crews from Illinois, who were expected to be at work by this morning. Both power providers were expecting further outages, as the worst of the storm was forecasted to occur during the overnight hours. PSNH customers should report an outage by calling 1-800-662-7764 or by visiting NHEC members should call 1-800-343-6432 to report an outage.

LACONIA — The Department of Public Works announced yesterday that due to Hurricane Sandy, there will be no collection of trash or leaf and yard waste today, Tuesday, October 30. All curbside collection will be set back one day for the remainder of the week; that is, Tuesday’s route will be run on

heroin. It’s more and more likely to be prescription pain killers. Strang said opiates in all forms are highly addictive. He said they have a legitimate use for treatment of pain but once addictions sets in — and very often he said addiction can stem from what once was a legitimate medical problem — addicts will do almost anything to get the drug. In cases of long-term use and or abuse, he also said more and more of the drug is needed to get the same feeling, often leading to overdose and death. According to statistics provided by Capt. William Clary of the Laconia Police Department, prescription drugs, especially oxycodone — oxys, blueberries and other street names — were the leading cause of drug-overdose deaths in New Hampshire. And for Clary and Roy — the leaders of the Laconia’s Problem Oriented Police (POP) project on prescription drug abuse — opiates and the fallout from their abuse are taking their toll on Laconia. It’s not just the overdoses Clary explained. “We’ve responded to a call for a woman screaming at a pharmacist to give pills,” he said, adding police have gotten calls from threats ranging from threats

in doctors’ offices to thefts, assaults and robberies that are drug related. He said many of the burglaries in the city and surrounding area — including the bed-time burglaries during the summer of 2011 — stemmed from opiate drug addiction. On July 8 in Gilford the pharmacy at Shaw’s Supermarkets was robbed and the robber demanded oxycodone. Clary also said people who abuse prescription opiates often either take them inappropriately — like chopping them up and inhaling them or liquifying them and injecting them — or they consume alcohol and/or other drugs along with the opiates. “These are particularly dangerous combinations,” Clary said. At the county level, Department of Corrections Superintendent Daniel Ward said he is seeing more and more inmates coming to jail who are opiate addicted. “We see the beginnings of withdrawal symptoms if inmates are here for a few days,” he said. “It begins with cramps and muscle spasms and

Tilton convenience store robbed on Monday afternoon TILTON — Police are investigating a robbery that occurred yesterday at the Express Mart in the Lochmere section of town. Lt. Ryan Martin said the report came at 3:30 p.m.

yesterday afternoon. As of 5:30 p.m. police had no one in custody. No further information was available.

from preceding page usually progresses to nausea,” he added. Ward also said the protocols for withdrawal in jail have changed and there is no more Librium to ease the symptoms. “Oh it’s going to be uncomfortable,” he said. “But withdrawal won’t kill someone.” Ward has lost one patient in the past to opiate overdose. He said the man self-reported to jail and was fine when he arrived but was found dead in his cell about six hours after he arrived. He said the ensuing investigation revealed the man had taken a number of opiates just before he came to the jail. Financially, the Belknap County Department of Corrections has two full-time nurses and three parttime nurses. Although treating drug addiction is not their only job, he said nearly two-thirds of the inmates in jail are addicted to something. Increasingly, he said the addictions are prescription opiate related. There is a labor cost he said. “We have a duty to supervise and we have to check on them more often,” he said. “There’s too much of this medication out there,” said Belknap County Sheriff Craig Wiggin, echoing Clary, Ward and other area police officers. Police say the problem is predominately over-prescribing by physicians. “Sure we’ll occasionally see Internet drugs from other countries or the results of thefts and robberies, but most of it comes from the doctors,” he said, adding people stealing the drugs from a family member or friend is also not uncommon. At least one area physician recently lost her license for over-prescribing but Clary said this was an extreme case and took months of investigation. “Every community has it’s own Dr. Feel Good and people will know who that is,” said Strang. “That information is spread quickly throughout the community.” Wiggin and Strang both said the real problem is doctor shopping and Strang agreed. “I’ve seen people travel the Interstate 93 corridor going to different emergency rooms and presenting with the same symptoms,” Strang said. Now at Lakes Region General Hospital, Strang said he recently had a couple come in at the same time and

tell him they were heroin addicts and wanted him to prescribe the opiate Percoset for them. “They told me if I didn’t proscribe for them they would go out and use again and that if one of them died it would be my fault,” he said. He said he responded by telling them he would treat them for their addiction and hospitalize them, but would not give them the requested drugs. He said they left — angry. Strang said while emergency rooms are “an easy target” because of the volume of people who get seen, they are not the prime source of opiates because emergency room physicians rarely prescribe for more pills than is needed to get a patient through the night or weekend. “Usually two or three days at the most,” he said. “Physicians are trusting soles,” he said. “We want to help.” Strang said information shared between doctors is not privileged, but more doctors need to make inquiry phone calls to other physicians if they suspect something isn’t right. “If we don’t do our due diligence, they’ll keep coming back for more,” he said. Doctor shopping — or going to multiple doctors for the same ailment to get prescription drugs — is illegal but he said New Hampshire is “ground zero” in New England because it is the only state without a central registry. Strang said he’s seen people who have multiple doctors in the state and their “job” is to go from doctor to doctor with the same pain symptoms and get medication. These people fill their prescriptions in different pharmacies, usually don’t use insurance, and generally pay in cash he said. “Opiates are relatively inexpensive and the cost of the drugs plus a doctor’s visit is no deterrent because of the high street value of some of the pills,” he said. For example, Laconia Det. Sgt. Scott Roy said the average street value of one 30 milligram pill of oxycodone is between $30 and $40, depending on how far north a person is who purchases it. Strang’s solution is one he’s been working on for nearly 10 years — a central registry for physicians and pharmacists to record their narcotic prescriptions. see next page

Diane Lacey elected to again head SEA union BARTLETT — The State Employee’s Association re-elected Diana Lacey of Belmont as the president of the organization for another two-year term. The election took place on day two of the organization’s 72nd Annual convention held at the Attitash Grand Summit Hotel. Of the 148 votes cast, Lacey received 94 votes, defeating her opponent, Bruce Vanlandingham by 37 points. It was viewed as a strong vote of confidence in Lacey, having completed her first term in office, which began just two days before the most anti-

labor legislature in nearly a century was elected. “The delegates made clear that they are All In To Win and are committed to ending the race to the bottom approach that some politicians have taken with working families in NH,” said Lacey who is the first full time female SEA President and is a 20 year veteran of state service. Other elected Officers included, Ken Roos, for a second term as First Vice President, Betty Thomas as Second Vice President, Ralph Tilton as the long time SEA Treasurer, and Shelley Elmes, Secretary.

Gilford Fire/Rescue brings women down from Lockes Hill Trail GILFORD — A Fire Department team rescued a 62-year-old woman from Lockes Hill Trail Saturday afternoon after she fell and injured her ankle. Chief Stephen Carrier said the seven-member rescue team used the department’s Argo All-Terrain Vehicle to reach the woman who was located near the top of the loop of the trail. The department

accessed the trail by setting up a command post at Kimball Castle. The rescue crew was able to use the woman’s cell phone coordinates to map exactly where she was. Crews put a split on her ankle, secured her to a carry bed, and carried her to the ambulance. She was taken by ambulance to Lakes Region General Hospital.

Correction: Budget decision on free coffee at Gilford Town Hall not yet made A Daily Sun report on the October 18 meeting of the Gilford Budget Committee included a couple of reporting errors. The committee didn’t vote to eliminate $350 from the administration budget for coffee but rather asked the administrator to return to them with an exact figure for how much providing coffee for town hall employees and guests was

costing. Some members of the committee objected to paying for that particular amenity. Also, Town Administrator Scott Dunn clarified that the town is still a party to the Liberty Hill Coal Tar suit but he does not expect the town to expend any more money on related attorney fees. He said there is a potential settlement expected in the near future.

from preceding page Law enforcement stands behind him said Wiggin who recently participated in a task force to research and encourage the passage of the bill that sets up a drug registry in New Hampshire. “We are the 49th state to create a registry,” said Strang, noting Missouri is the now the only state without one. Operating without the registry, Strang said New Hampshire was like an “island” in New England and people flocked to the state to doctor shop. The law, which goes into effect in January of 2013, sets up a prescription drug registry and allows doctors and dispensers to consult it before writing or

filling a prescription. “Our goal is preventing doctor shopping,” Strang said, adding the law has criminal penalties against only in the case of a willful violation by a treating physician and or pharmacy. Law enforcement has no access to the registry except with a court-ordered warrant for a specific person’s records. “There is no mining by police,” Strang said. Wiggin likes the law. “We don’t want to see anyone denied medical care but do want doctors and pharmacists to stop prescribing drugs that aren’t warranted,” he said.

His second career was with the Ardiff law firm and later driving his new PT Cruiser as a courier for the Salem, MA law firm of Tinti, Quinn, Grover and

Frey. Wayne was an avid Patriots fan. Upon his retirement, Wayne and Fran moved to Herrick House in Beverly, MA. He continued to enjoy the North Shore during driving expeditions with weekly Sunday morning breakfasts (crispy waffles on a warm plate). After Fran’s death in 2006, he moved to Meredith Bay Colony Club in Meredith, NH, where he danced often and enjoyed many rural outdoor events. Wayne was the son of the late Sarah Putnam and Earle Curtis and is survived by children: sons, Richard Curtis and wife, Jeannine, and Scott Curtis all of MA, and daughters Lynne Butcher and husband, Bernard, of CA and Cynthia Curtis and partner, Jim, of NH. His step-daughter is Deb Leavitt and her partner, Craig, of Fort Myers, FL. He has 9 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren.

Clarification: House candidate Tim Lang supports education tax credits Clarifying a portion of a report on the October 19 Candidiates Night forum at the Old Town Hall in Sanbornton, House District 2 Candidate Tim Lang of Sanbornton said he supports the law that now allows private businesses to make donations to non-

profit scholarship funds that could be used to offset the costs of private or parochial school and take a tax credit from the business enterprise or business profits tax. He said he doesn’t consider said law to be a “voucher” program.

DEBATE from page one that made it relatively easy to reschedule,” said Daily Sun editor and president Ed Engler. “We appreciate both Josh and Andrew working with us to fit this in with so few days remaining before the Nov. 6 election — not to mention the folks at the Belknap Mill Society.” No questions for the two candidates will be taken from the floor, but voters attending the forum will be afforded the opportunity to submit written questions that would like each man to answer. Writing

materials will be provided. Laconia has not had one of its own residents serve in the 24-member Senate for over one-half century but that will change with the election of either the Democrat Hosmer or the Republican Youssef. Neither man has ever held elected office before. Hosmer is general manager of AutoServ Nissan in Tilton. Youssef owns the Same Day Computer store in Laconia and has franchised like stores in a number of other New Hampshire communities.

NH SANDY from page one were going to be impressive,” he said. “Plus, I’ve never seen what the ocean looks like in a storm.” Though the beach was closed, dozens of onlookers gathered on the sidewalk, some cheering as if they were on an amusement park ride each time a wave crashed over the seawall. Elaine St. Pierre from Goffstown, 69, said she initially thought her husband was crazy to suggest driving to Hampton, but called it “a once in a lifetime thing.” “It’s an unusual sight,” she said as she got sprayed by the water. “I’m glad we came, but I’ll be glad to get home.” Some marshy areas and roads near the beach were flooded. In nearby Portsmouth, City Hall, the library and other buildings were closing at 4 p.m. and Halloween trick or treating — originally planned for Tuesday —was postponed until Saturday. The ports of Portsmouth and Portland, Maine, took the unusual steps of closing to commercial traffic at 5 p.m. Monday because of anticipated high winds, the Coast Guard said. Numerous schools across the state were closed and flights were canceled at Manchester-Boston

Regional Airport. At least 13 shelters have been opened across the state. Earlier, Lynch put 100 New Hampshire Guard soldiers on active duty to conduct wellness checks, assist with debris removal and distribute food and water. Utilities secured crews from Canada and a number of states as they prepared for prolonged power outages and tree damage.

MARKETS from page 2 CME Group’s New York trading floor was closed, but its electronic markets for commodities were functioning. Crude oil fell 74 cents to close at $85.54 in electronic trading. CME said electronic trading for commodities would also be open Tuesday. CME said it would reopen its stock index futures trading Monday night at 6 p.m. ET for overnight electronic trading and keep it open through 9:15 a.m. Tuesday. Trading on interest rate futures and options on futures including Treasurys, Eurodollar and Fed Funds would reopen at the same time Monday night and stay open Tuesday. Bond trading will be closed Tuesday. The Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association called for an early close to bond trading Monday, at 12 noon. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note was 1.72 percent, compared with 1.75 percent late Friday. European stock markets fell. France’s CAC-40 fell 0.8 percent, Britain’s FTSE fell 0.2 percent and Germany’s DAX lost 0.4 percent. Insurers such as Munich Re, Aviva PLC and Zurich Insurance fared worse than other stocks as investors worried about the potential cost of the storm’s damage. “The economic impact cannot be underestimated,” said Elsa Lignos, an analyst at RBC Capital Markets. The uncertainty generated by the storm comes at the start of a big week in the United States. This is the last full week before next Tuesday’s presidential election and culminates Friday with the release of monthly jobs data, which many analysts think could have an impact on the vote.

MANCHESTER — Cross-country coach Andrew Mercer was already convinced that Samantha ‘Sami’ Hicks was one of the greatest runners if not the fastest ever to ever wear a Laconia Sachems uniform, if not the fastest ever. On Saturday, she won the NHIAA Cross-Country Division III Meet, giving her coach another piece of evidence to support his assertion. Hicks easily won the Division III Cross-Country Championship, completing the five kilometer course at Derryfield Park in Manchester in a time of 19 minutes, 38 seconds. “Sami” Hicks, shown here at left, celebrates with teammates Katelyn Bailey and Amber Gilbert at the NHIAA cross country state meet, held in Manchester.

Everything changes when you know why you’re doing what you’re doing.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Tuesday, Oct. 30, the 304th day of 2012. There are 62 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 30, 1912, Vice President James S. Sherman, running for a second term of office with President William Howard Taft, died six days before Election Day. (Sherman was replaced with Nicholas Murray Butler, but Taft, the Republican candidate, ended up losing in an Electoral College landslide to Democrat Woodrow Wilson.) On this date: In 1735, the second president of the United States, John Adams, was born in Braintree, Mass. In 1893, the U.S. Senate gave final congressional approval to repealing the Sherman Silver Purchase Act of 1890. In 1921, the silent film classic “The Sheik,” starring Rudolph Valentino, premiered in Los Angeles. In 1938, the radio play “The War of the Worlds,” starring Orson Welles, aired on CBS. In 1944, the Martha Graham ballet “Appalachian Spring,” with music by Aaron Copland, premiered at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., with Graham in a leading role. In 1945, the U.S. government announced the end of shoe rationing, effective at midnight. In 1953, Gen. George C. Marshall was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Dr. Albert Schweitzer received the Peace Prize for 1952. In 1961, the Soviet Union tested a hydrogen bomb, the “Tsar Bomba,” with a force estimated at about 50 megatons. The Soviet Party Congress unanimously approved a resolution ordering the removal of Josef Stalin’s body from Lenin’s tomb. In 1972, 45 people were killed when an Illinois Central Gulf commuter train was struck from behind by another train in Chicago’s South Side. In 1974, Muhammad Ali knocked out George Foreman in the eighth round of a 15-round bout in Kinshasa, Zaire (zah-EER’), known as the “Rumble in the Jungle,” to regain his world heavyweight title. In 1985, schoolteacher-astronaut Christa McAuliffe witnessed the launch of the space shuttle Challenger, the same craft that carried her and six other crew members to their deaths in January 1986. One year ago: Britian’s Sunday Telegraph published an interview with Syrian President Bashar Assad, who warned that a western intervention in Syria would lead to an “earthquake” that “would burn the whole region.” Today’s Birthdays: Actor Dick Gautier is 75. Movie director Claude Lelouch is 75. Actor Ed Lauter is 74. Rock singer Grace Slick is 73. Songwriter Eddie Holland is 73. Rhythm-and-blues singer Otis Williams (The Temptations) is 71. Actor Henry Winkler is 67. Rock musician Chris Slade (Asia) is 66. Country/rock musician Timothy B. Schmit (The Eagles) is 65. Actor Leon Rippy is 63. Actor Harry Hamlin is 61. Actor Charles Martin Smith is 59. Country singer T. Graham Brown is 58. Actor Kevin Pollak is 55. Actor Michael Beach is 49. Rock singer-musician Gavin Rossdale (Bush) is 45.

Page 20 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, October 30, 2012


Dear Annie: I was with my ex-husband for 18 years before I divorced him. We have three children, and he hasn’t been the best father or husband. Lately, however, he has been nice and comes around to visit the kids. I appreciate the fact that he is doing this, but he is now saying things to me that make me uncomfortable. He slept on my couch a couple of nights because he stayed late with the kids when I was out. But now he is coming every day and staying over every night. We often end up sleeping together. I told him to stop coming around with the expectation that we are getting back together, because we are not. But he refuses to listen, and now he has asked me to marry him again. He won’t take “no” for an answer. What should I do? -- Think I’ve Been Too Nice Dear Think: For starters, stop sleeping with him. By allowing him to spend the night in your bed, you are leading him on, encouraging him to believe there is hope. If you are serious about keeping him as an ex-husband, you must put an end to the couch sleepovers. When you return home, insist that he leave the premises. If you don’t have the backbone for that, drop the kids at his place instead of letting him come to yours. Or hire a babysitter. You are creating this problem. You can stop it. Dear Annie: How do you handle someone who constantly interrupts? She always knows more about the story and makes me feel inadequate. She’s loud, abrasive and obnoxious. We had a good group of friends, and this person ingratiated herself into our clique. Only one of the other women likes her, but it’s enough to keep her around. I’d love to put her

in her place, but don’t want to cause a rift with my friends. -- Annoyed Dear Annoyed: Does she do this with everyone, or only you? If it’s just you, it could be that you take a long time to get to the point, or you monopolize conversations more than you realize. However, if she does it to everyone, you can say, “I’m sure you have something to add, but I’d appreciate it if you would let me finish first.” Many people who interrupt do not realize they are doing it and need to be reminded, nicely, when they overstep. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Bring Back Wedding Etiquette,” who thought it was tacky that the bridal couple requested that guests contribute to their honeymoon. My son and his fiance also set up a website for guests to contribute to certain categories of their honeymoon expenses. They did this because they reside in a foreign country, but the wedding ceremony is in the U.S. They cannot carry gifts back with them, nor do they have a place here to store them. They are making the suggestion that if people want to give them a wedding gift, they can donate online. It may seem tacky to some, but they came up with the fund in order to be helpful. It is in no way meant to coerce anyone into paying for their honeymoon. People should consider the circumstances of the couple involved before they criticize. -Proud Mom of a Considerate Couple Dear Proud: Couples who live overseas, particularly those stationed in the military, are given dispensation to request monetary gifts because otherwise it becomes complicated, if not downright impossible, to give presents. However, honeymoon websites are deliberately specific categories, and when those are the only options available, it seems like pressure even if that is not the intent.

All New England Choral Festival at PSU Nov. 1

PLYMOUTH — More than 200 high school students from 50 New England high schools will sing their hearts out November 1 at 7 p.m. at Plymouth State University. The students will join the University Chorale and the PSU Chamber Singers, participating in the 35th Annual All New England Choral Festival, directed by PSU Professor Dan Perkins, conductor and artistic director of the festival. The concert in Hanaway Theatre at the Silver Center culminates weeks of advance preparation and a full day of rehearsals for the students and workshops for their teachers. The Dover High School choir, directed by Robert Finch, will be featured on the program. This year’s theme is “Villages of the Earth,” for which the choirs will be singing in Chinese, Latin, Spanish and Hebrew, as well as performing some works in English that focus on the global community. Three University Chorale members from Hong Kong have assisted on the Chinese pieces. The centerpiece of the concert will be “Villages of the Earth,” a three-movement work by American

composer Janika Vandervelde. Poetry for this work was composed by peace activist Meridel le Seur and encourages listeners to “...let us seek each other in the villages of the earth.” Director Perkins says students have enjoyed discussing the relevance of this poetry while viewing world news and events. The culminating work on the program will be “Shed a Little Light” by James Taylor. Tickets for the concert are $15 for adults, $13 for seniors and $11 for youth at the Silver Center Box Office, (603) 535-2787 or (800) 779-3869. Tickets are also available online at The PSUChamber Singers, an ensemble of 16-24 voices open to all PSU students by audition, performs music of all periods and styles in concerts both on and off campus. The ensemble has performed in England, South Africa, Vietnam, Italy, Canada, the American Southwest, and throughout New England and the East Coast. The University Chorale is a 70-80 voice ensemble open to all PSU students. The ensemble performs works from all periods and styles, often in collaboration with other New Hampshire choirs and orchestras.

Mr. Nick & the Dirty Tricks at Pitman’s Thursday

LACONIA — The Live Thursday Night Music Series at Pitman’s Freight Room will present Mr. Nick and the Dirty Tricks Thursday, November 1 at 8 p.m. Admission to the BYOB event is $10. Mr. Nick & the Dirty Tricks unites veteran musicians Nick David (a.k.a. Mr. Nick), “Lonely” Gus Carlson, Teddy B. (Bukowski) and Rick Rousseau for one of the region’s most formidable live outfits in any genre. But their hearts belong to blues. Real blues. They play elegant, stomping and swinging classics like Little Walter’s “Mellow Down Easy,” Howlin’ Wolf’s “300 Pounds of Joy” and Wynonie Harris’

“Good Morning Judge.” Their bag of originals is a mix of rhumbas, jump blues, and boogies they’re developing for a debut album and currently taking to legions of fans in New England on their way to stages throughout the US and abroad. “This band is a killer outfit,” says David. And that’s the truth.
