Alton voters approve deal with teachers on 4th try By michAel Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

ALTON — Voters approved the collective bargaining agreement negotiated between the Alton Teachers’ Association the School Board last night by a margin of 270 in favor and 172

against with 443, or 12-percent of the 3,573 registered voters casting ballots. It was the fourth time in two years that a contract proposal was put to a vote. One two occasion, starting in March 2010, contract proposals failed by majority vote

and once on a tie vote. In August the School Board and teachers’ union reached agreement on the one-year contract that would freeze the pay of veteran employees at the step on the salary schedule they reached on June 30

and of those appointed after July 1 at the step at which they are hired. All 47 employees would receive a one-time payment equal to one-percent of their salary, which would not be incorporated into the salary see aLTOn page 17


LACONIA — After considering four options prepared by staff, the Government Operations Committee of City Council yesterday agreed to recommend a redistricting plan to the entire council that effectively undoes the most contentious feature of the ward lines drawn a decade ago. The federal and state constitutions require that the boundaries of all federal, state and municipal electoral districts be redrawn every 10 years to comply as closely as possible with with the principle of “one man, one vote” in light of population changes reported by the United States Census. Ten years ago, the boundary between Ward 1 and Ward 3 was gerrymandered to ensure that two incumbent city councilors — Paul Bordeau in Ward 1 and Fred Toll in Ward 3 — remained in separate see waRds page 12

Helicopter crashes in NYC’s East River; 1 dead

NEW YORK (AP) — A helicopter on a private tour with five people aboard sputtered and crashed into the East River on Tuesday afternoon shortly after takeoff from a riverbank heliport, killing one passenger and injuring three others. The 40-year-old victim apparently was trapped inside as the chopper sank about 50 feet below the surface of the swift-moving water, police said. New York Police Department divers pulled her from the water about 90 minutes after the Bell 206 Jet Ranger went down at around 3 p.m. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Emergency crews arrived within seconds of the crash to find the helicopter upside-down in the murky water with just its skids showing on the surface. The pilot, Paul Dudley, and three passengers were bobbing, and witnesses reported a man diving down, possibly in an attempt to rescue the remaining passenger. The passengers were friends of the pilot’s family: including a husband and wife who were British and living in Portugal and the wife’s daughter, also British, who died at the scene.

Amanda Knox flies home to be with family in Seattle SEATTLE (AP) — Amanda Knox returned to her hometown of Seattle on Tuesday with four years in an Italian prison behind her, the stabbing death of her roommate still a mystery and the media frenzy surrounding her case as strong on U.S. soil as it was in Europe. Friends and family who held spaghetti dinners, bowling events and concerts to raise money for Knox’s defense were thrilled to have her home, but her supporters were a small presence at the SeattleTacoma International Airport compared to

the media: dozens of U.S. and international reporters, along with cameras and satellite trucks. Knox’s life turned around dramatically Monday when an Italian appeals court threw out her conviction in the sexual assault and fatal stabbing of her British roommate. On Tuesday a courtroom picture of Knox crying after the verdict was read appeared on the front pages of newspapers in Italy, the U.S., Britain and around the world. The court’s decision, fueled by doubts

over DNA evidence, stunned the victim’s family and angered the prosecution, which insists that she was among three people who killed 21-year-old Meredith Kercher. But for Knox’s grandmother Elisabeth Huff, “it was like the weight of the world had gone.” “We all are as happy as can be. I can’t tell you how long we’ve been looking forward to this day,” Huff told The Associated Press outside her home in West Seattle, a tightknit community a few miles across Elliott see KNOX page 17

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — After a surge of new speculation, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie declared with finality Tuesday that “now is not my time” to run for president, dashing the hopes of Republicans still searching for someone other than front-runners Mitt Romney and Rick Perry. Christie had insisted for months that he wouldn’t run. But then came an intense weekend of reconsideration before he made a firm announcement at a news conference at the New Jersey Statehouse. His

decision means the campaign now basically belongs to Romney and Perry, battling to take on President Barack Obama three months before the first GOP voting. Though both men have extensive party support, Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, has failed to win over some skeptical conservatives, and Perry, the Texas governor, has been falling in opinion polls as quickly as he had risen. Christie was the latest, perhaps last, hope of some establishment Republicans

who had already been rejected by Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan and others who declined to run for president in 2012. He’s been governor of New Jersey for less than two years, but he’s cut the budget, curtailed public sector unions, and dealt with a Democratic legislature with disarming and combative confidence. Christie disputed the idea that his name see CHRISTIE page 8

DETROIT (AP) — The union that once set the gold standard for American wages is giving up pay raises in exchange for a piece of the auto industry’s profits and the promise of thousands of new jobs.

Under agreements struck with Ford and General Motors, most of the companies’ factory workers will get profit-sharing checks instead of annual raises. They’ll also get a signing bonus. In turn, the automakers will

increase their workforces and invest billions more dollars in their factories. It’s an unusual turnabout for the United Auto Workers. For decades, its members’ see FORD page 4

ASHLAND — A Thornton man was transported to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon on Tuesday for treatment of serious injuries resulting from a one car accident on I-93, near Exit 24. Michael E. Manuel, 50 has been charged with driving while intoxicated in connection with the incident. According to a State Police report, the accident was reported at 9:30 a.m. Investigators at the scene determined that Manuel was traveling southbound in a 1998 Ford Escort when his vehicle suddenly veered across the roadway and into the median. The car then traveled up a steep embankment, where it flipped over the guardrail of the northbound lane of travel, landing in the passing lane. The vehicle kept rolling across the northbound lanes before coming to rest in the median

strip between the highway and the ramp for Exit 24. Manuel was ejected from the car. He was treated at the scene by members of the Ashland Fire Rescue and subsequently transported to Speare Memorial Hospital in Plymouth in serious to critical condition. He was later transported to Dartmouth Hitchcock Hospital for further treatment. State Police reported that that speed and alcohol appear to have been contributing factors in the crash. The incident remains under investigation. Assisting at the crash scene were troopers from Troop F, Troop G and Troop D , as well as a Trooper from the Technical Accident Reconstruction Unit in Troop E. Also at the scene where the Ashland Police Department and the Ashland and Plymouth Fire Rescue Units.

FORD from page 2 pay and benefits were the envy of workers around the world, and it wouldn’t hesitate to strike to protect them. But the agreement signals a new reality. After the industry nearly collapsed two years ago, a sobered UAW is no longer fighting the Big Three but fighting to compete against rivals who pay their workers far less. “We are aware of the competition that Ford and General Motors and Chrysler face,” UAW President Bob King said Tuesday after announcing terms of a new four-year contract with Ford. “If we are going to succeed in the long run and really be able to have long-run security and decent income for our membership, we can’t put Ford and GM and Chrysler at a competitive disadvantage.” Ford Motor Co. and the UAW agreed on a four-year contract Tuesday, three weeks after the union reached a similar agreement at General Motors Co. The companies are promising at least 17,000 new U.S. jobs over the life of the contracts, and are offering workers signing bonuses and profit-sharing payments. But the companies will be able to contain their costs by not paying annual raises to their U.S. fac-

tory workers and by hiring thousands of new workers at lower wage rates. King said he understands some workers will be unhappy, but he thinks they can live with the terms. GM workers have already ratified their agreement; Ford workers are expected to wrap up voting by Oct. 14. “They know the competitive structure as well as I do. They know their family and friends who are underemployed (and) unemployed,” King said. “They know how important it is to have long-term jobs so they can be back in 2015. Maybe we will be able to do some fixed cost increases then.” Ford workers will get at least $16,700 over the four-year contract, in the form of a $6,000 signing bonus, $7,000 in lump-sum and inflation protection payments and at least $3,700 in profitsharing this year. That’s more generous than GM’s agreement, which guarantees workers at least $11,500. Ford plans to add 5,750 U.S. factory jobs under the deal, on top of 6,250 it announced earlier this year, for a total of 12,000 jobs by 2015. It also pledged to invest $4.8 billion in its U.S. factories. When combined with $1.4 billion in investments that have already been see next page

CONCORD — Plymouth resident Jason Michael MacDonald, 35 had died while incarcarated at the N.H. State Prison. N.H. Department of Correction officials announced on Tuesday afternoon that he was found unresponsive in his bunk in the prison’s dormitory area during the morning prison population court, around 8:25 a.m. The State Police Major Crimes Unit is investigating MacDonald’s death as “utimely”. MacDonald was serving a one to two year sentence for burglary. He began serving his sentence just over a month ago, on September 1. He would have been eligible for parole on August 30, 2012. MacDonald was sentenced in Belknap County Superior Court in Laconia.

M’borough officials asking residents to aid search for new police chief by completing online survey MOULTONBOROUGH — The Selectboard is asking the community to weigh in on the upcoming search for the next chief of police. The method for community involvement will be an online survey available on the town’s web site: The survey contains a number of fixed and openended questions aimed at identifying the ideal characteristics they think are needed in the next chief of police and the issues the chief will face when they arrive at their new job. There are also questions aimed at identifying issues of concern and what steps the next chief can take to improve the effectiveness of the department to meet the community’s needs. This community input will help the selectmen shape a profile and challenge statement that will be used in the upcoming recruitment process to identify the chief that will be the best fit for Moultonborough. Chairman of the Selectboard Joel Mudgett said, “Public support for the police department is essential and the face of the department to the community is the chief. The town wants to hear from the people of Moultonborough what is important to them as we go forward with hiring a new chief of police. We hope folks will make it a priority to take the 10 minutes that is needed to complete the survey and assist us in this most important matter.” from preceding page announced, Ford plans to invest $6.2 billion by 2015. Ford union leaders approved the deal around noon Tuesday after a meeting in Detroit. The deal is subject to a vote by Ford’s workers. Voting is expected next week. If they agree to the contract, Ford’s 41,000 hourly workers will get $1,000 more as a signing bonus than the $5,000 bonus GM workers got under their agreement. The GM agreement also gives most workers profit-sharing payments instead of annual raises and promises 6,400 new or retained jobs. John Fleming, Ford vice president of manufacturing, said most of the 5,750 additional hires will be paid $19.28 per hour, a fraction of the $28 hourly wage of Ford’s older workers. Ford currently has less than 100 entry-level workers, but will hire thousands more by 2015. Ford agreed to a lower wage for entry level workers in 2007 when the company was losing billions of dollars. As a result, the agreement is expected to lower Ford’s labor costs, which are the highest in the U.S. auto industry.

The state Bureau of Securities Regulation says the center has acquired a surplus more than $100 in million in taxpayer money and needs to return that amount to cities and towns. The center says it has returned surpluses through the years in the form of rate reductions, saying communities prefer to have stability rather than get a check one year, and see a rate spike the next.

Was Awlaki really an American? Friday morning, Predator drones operated by the CIA and Joint Special Operations Command rendezvoused over Yemen and launched Hellfire missiles that blew to pieces the radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki. A declared enemy in the war on terror was eliminated. Yet Awlaki was a U.S. citizen. Reps. Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul denounced the action. Kucinich said President Obama “trampled on the Constitution.” Paul said Awlaki had never been convicted. “Nobody knows if he killed anybody.” Paul described what was done as “assassinating” an American. Did we have the right to target and kill Awlaki? According to U.S. intelligence, Awlaki inspired or incited the Fort Hood massacre and Times Square bomber. Intelligence officials say he played a direct role in the attempt to bring down an airliner over Detroit at Christmas 2009. That would make him an accomplice in attempted mass murder. Indeed, there is more hard evidence tying Awlaki to acts of terror against the United States than there ever was tying Saddam Hussein to acts of terror against us. Yet it is also true that Awlaki was never convicted of these crimes. What, then, is the legal case for killing him? Answer: America is at war with al-Qaida — a war authorized and funded by Congress. In that war, Awlaki, hiding in a foreign country, has been inspiring and inciting Muslims to massacre U.S. citizens who are noncombatants — a war crime under the Geneva Conventions. Adds Obama, Awlaki was the “external operations” chief for alQaida in the Arabian Peninsula. And even if Awlaki were not an operations officer in al-Qaida, only a propagandist, his actions would seem to constitute wartime treason. When killed, he was traveling with 25-year-old Saudi-born Samir Khan, another American, who edited and wrote Inspire, the English-language magazine of al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula. Khan, who had proclaimed, “I am proud to be a traitor in America,” was also killed in the drone attack. Do we have a right to target enemy propagandists who do not carry out acts of mass murder but encourage or instigate them? Ezra Pound, the American poet and expatriate who made wartime broadcasts from Mussolini’s Italy attacking Jews and FDR, was charged with treason and spent a dozen years in St. Elizabeth’s Hospital for the Insane. Lord HawHaw, the American-born William Joyce, who broadcast from Berlin during World War II, was executed by the British, though like Pound, he killed no one. Mildred Gillars, the American-born “Axis Sally,”

was imprisoned for treason in the United States after World War II. Ikuko Toguri D’Aquino, the American woman branded “Tokyo Rose,” was imprisoned for treasonous radio broadcasts, though later pardoned by President Ford. Would it have been unconstitutional for the U.S. military to target the radio station broadcasting Tokyo Rose? Alfred Rosenberg, the Nazi ideologist and race theorist, was convicted at Nuremberg and hanged. One does not have to kill in wartime to get the death penalty for war crimes. Several of the German saboteurs put ashore in Florida and Long Island were U.S. citizens who were tried in secret and executed. Their executions were upheld by the Supreme Court. As the Obama administration argues, were Japanese-Americans to have been found engaged in support of Japanese forces in wartime, they could have been targeted and killed. The order to intercept and shoot down the aircraft carrying Adm. Yamamoto, architect of Pearl Harbor, would appear to qualify as wartime assassination. As does Winston Churchill’s decision to drop British-trained Czech and Slovak agents into Czechoslovakia to assassinate Reinhard Heydrich. That assassination produced severe blowback. The Nazis exacted retribution on the Czech village of Lidice, killing all the males over 16 and sending the women and children to concentration camps. But the controversy over the AwlakiKhan killings raises real issues. The lack of a declaration of war prevents us from charging such individuals with treason, which, under the Constitution, “shall consist only in levying War against” the United States “or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.” The issue of dual citizenship also arises. Awlaki was a citizen of the United States, having been born here. But he was also a citizen of Yemen. What was his nationality: American or Yemeni? Was he really one of us? In the Oath of Allegiance to the United States, the new citizen pledges, “I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen.” Did not Awlaki’s leadership of al-Qaida contradict any allegiance? Obama did the right thing, but we need clarity in this new kind of war. Having struck al-Qaida in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen, where else is it permissible to use drones to kill enemies? If American propagandists for al-Qaida are legitsee next page

LETTERS The professor just wants permission to indoctrinate students To the editor, Over the years I have come to recognize that what we call freedom can be as messy as the floor in an abattoir. Free speech can be downright ugly and offensive. Freedom of assembly can turn into confrontations of one sort or another. The right to life can turn deadly for some. And so it goes. One has to wonder what the founders were thinking when they read what Jefferson and his associates wrote in the Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Surely those men had to know that what they were calling “truths” would be looked upon in future years as mere suppositions, not truths. And “self evident”? Certainly learned men will one day demand some material proof, not simply take the word of Jefferson and the founders. Who would ever believe that “all men are created equal”. My goodness, just look around you . . . tall, short, comely, plain, bright and dull, variations in color. For sure, this is not ‘equal’. Endowed by their Creator? A humanist would take issue with that statement, and demand proof of such. This word ‘unalienable’ is an insistence that these new proclaimed Rights are God given and cannot be taken away? Who ever heard of such a thing? That those Rights include Life and Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness? Does that really mean that everyone is entitled to life? Liberty? And the pursuit of Happiness? Pshaw! What are those fools thinking? If you notice, the founders didn’t guarantee happiness. Nor did they guarantee anyone would be entitled to it. They only said that we have a God given

right to pursue it. Further, they didn’t guarantee anyone would be as successful as their neighbor, but they gave each of us the liberty to make the most out of the talents we were given. The right to life called for in the Declaration, and codified in the 14th Amendment, said that God given right couldn’t be taken away without ‘due process’. But we’re smarter now and we just ignore that ‘unalienable right’. For shame! This preamble brings me to Tuesday’s column by Professor Sandy. He did his best (using the work of others, as he is inclined to do) to use emotion in his attempt to plead for equality of outcome. After reading his column I was once again reminded of the words of Albert Camus, the French philosopher, author, and anarchist, who said, “The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience”. Professor Sandy doesn’t really want equality of outcome, as he and we all know that is an impossibility. He simply wants permission to indoctrinate students so that they agree with his positions. You see, he doesn’t trust that Jefferson and the founders knew what they were doing when they entrusted plain, everyday people to think for themselves, to achieve based on their own merits, to have a shot at catching the gold ring in life’s merrygo-round. How could the founders possibly have thought that just plain folks would be smart enough to make decisions for themselves? Like a said, freedom can be as messy as the floor in the slaughterhouse. It’s a beautiful thing though, isn’t it? Why don’t we replace ‘tenure’ with merit? Bob Meade Laconia

President Obama’s Jobs Act is needed for the better of America To the editor, Why, when the citizens who voted them in are struggling to survive in this economy, do our elected representatives refuse to help.? The Jobs Act is fully paid for under the President’s deficit-reduction plan. Is the goal of our congressmen and

women to act for the better of America, or to make sure the current president is a “one-term president”? You can be sure your constituents are watching what you do. Virginia Heard Center Sandwich

LETTERS Where’s the evidence that Pres. Obama is friend of environment? To the editor, Interesting that Oct. 3 news reports David Axelrod, chief strategist for President Obama’s re-election campaign, criticized Gov. Perry’s campaign during a Sunday night interview by saying, “Campaigns are like an MRI for the soul — whoever you are, eventually people find out.” Yet, MRI-time spent on Mr. Axelrod, senior adviser to President Obama until his new job, will show that in January of this year, “Axelrod, presumably no agronomy expert, evidently argued against placing restrictions on GM alfalfa.” Monsanto got free-rein to get its genetically modified alfalfa into our croplands (which may prove irreversibly damaging), along with pushing use of its toxic Roundup, that kills bees as well as weeds. Organic farmers need organic alfalfa, but GM alfalfa travels harmfully into organic alfalfa fields. Honey producers need healthy bees as do pollen-dependent crops, but Roundup kills bees. About President Obama on this poor treatment of our environment: “Unhappily, the decision falls into line with other Obama administration gestures of fealty to the agrichemical lobby — like appointments of loyal Monsanto men to key ag-policy posts.” President Obama and David Axelrod, watching the Republican candidates, both hope that he has an environmental “good” card to play during his re-election bid? It hardly seems so. My daughter, an ecolo-

gist, does tell me that Interior Secretary Kenneth Salazar is an excellent choice. And her boss, new Chief of U.S. Geological Survey, Doug Beard, also is excellent. But we have the sad fact that President Obama recently denied his own EPA its science-based higher standards for clean air. What, exactly, is a positive act President Obama has done for our environment? He still, post Fukushima-Daiichi’s ongoing nuclear accident, supports new nuclear power, underwritten with taxpayer dollar subsidies (private money won’t touch it). He still lauds “clean coal,” as mountaintops are removed in our Appalachians. The Oct. 3 New York Times editorial predicts his Department of State will give a green light to the Keystone XL pipeline’s “acidic crude oil” coming south over the extensive Ogallala Aquifer, risking it as Canadian stuff gets to Texas. What is decided for the Keystone XL pipeline could determine what happens with New Hampshire’s much-disliked Northern Pass energy carried from Canada into mega-cities south of us. Both provoke the cry of “yeah, jobs!” overlooking serious environmental losses. Obama an environmentalist president? Hardly. His “MRI for the soul” mainly shows murkiness on the environment. That statement of Axelrod’s certainly backfires. Lynn Rudmin Chong Sanbornton

Government gets largest chunk on your money from gasoline To the editor, Transparency has not been in the Federal Reserve’s vocabulary since its birth in 1913. However some things do leak out they wish would stay hidden. They received unprecedented authority during the recent financial crisis. And used that power. The Government Accountability Office recently audited the FED’s emergency lending programs. Buried on page 131 of their 266 page report they found the FED had shipped trillions of dollars to overseas banks. The GAO was established as the General Accounting Office by the Budget And Accounting Act of 1921. It is required to “investigate, at the seat of government or elsewhere , all matters relating to receipts, disbursement and applications of public funds, and shall make to the President and Congress reports and recommendations looking to greater economy or efficiency in public expenditures”. In one year, Fed officials indiscriminately offered loans of $ 16-trillion to from preceding page imate targets, who else is? Sympathizers? And for how long can we launch such attacks? A decent respect for the opinion of mankind would seem to require answers. (Syndicated columnist Pat Buchanan has been a senior advisor to three presidents, twice a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination and the presidential nominee of the Reform Party in 2000. He won the New Hamp-

many Europeans banks. CitiGroup, Bank of America and Goldman Sachs were included in the loans. The GAO found that 65-percent of those “emergency loans” went to foreign companies and banks. The American taxpayer bailed out our own banking industry and Europe’s. What other secrets are they hiding? Dr. Tracy Farrigan is a geographer with the Resource and Rural Economics Division of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Economic Research Service. Her research centers on rural poverty and related household wellbeing issues. She wrote in May 20, 2011: “Since 1980, the total cost of tax expenditures has increased by over 250-percent and currently exceeds $1.1-trillion. The primary reason for this growth is that there is greater bipartisan support to enact tax expenditures than to fund or increase direct spending programs, especially since tax expenditures are often viewed as tax cuts. These expenditures have significantly reduced the share of taxpayers who owe Federal Income tax. As a result, in 2009, only half of rural taxpayers owed federal income tax. This is slightly below the overall rate of 53-percent of all tax payers and reflects the lower income levels of rural taxpayers.” The Americans for Tax Reform Center for Fiscal Accountability reported that in 2011, cost of Government Day falls on August 12. Working people must toil 224 days out of the year just to meet all costs imposed by government, a full 27 days longer see next page

FEMA/EFSP GRANTS BELKNAP COUNTY HAS BEEN AWARDED FEDERAL FUNDS UNDER THE EMERGENCY FOOD AND SHELTER NATIONAL BOARD PROGRAM. Belknap County has been chosen to receive $13,639 to supplement emergency food and shelter programs in the county. The selection was made by a National Board that is chaired by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and consists of representatives from The Salvation Army; American Red Cross; United Jewish Communities; Catholic Charities, USA; National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA; and, United Way of America. The Local Board was charged to distribute funds appropriated by Congress to help expand the capacity of food and shelter programs in high-need areas around the country. A Local Board will determine how the funds awarded to Belknap County are to be distributed among the emergency food and shelter programs run by local service agencies in the area. The Local Board is responsible for recommending agencies to receive these funds and any additional funds available under this phase of the program. Under the terms of the grant from the National Board, local agencies chosen to receive funds must: 1) be private voluntary non-profits or units of government, 2) have an accounting system, 3) practice non-discrimination, 4) have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food and/ or shelter programs, and 5) if they are a private voluntary organization, they must have a voluntary board. Qualifying agencies are urged to apply. Public or private voluntary agencies interested in applying for Emergency Food and Shelter Program funds can pick up an application at Lakes Region United Way, 95 Water St., Laconia NH, download it from or contact Lakes Region United Way at (603) 524-6864. The deadline for applications to be received is noon, Tuesday, November 1, 2011.

CHRISTIE from page 2 was just one more on that list. “They weren’t searching. They came right to one target, and it was me,” he said Tuesday. “And it has always been me.” But he said he was sure, “Now is not my time.” There are still other potential challengers. Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman is showing some promise in New Hampshire; former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum has support from social conservatives in Iowa and former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain is rising in national polls. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin still hasn’t said whether she’ll run. But Christie’s announcement leaves Perry and Romney as the two Republicans who have the profile, campaign organization, fundraising prowess and earlystate promise for a serious run at the nomination. Within hours, Christie donors started picking sides. The Romney campaign said Ken Langone, the Home Depot financier who helped lead the push to get Christie to run, had jumped on board. Iowa busi-

nessman Gary Kirke, who met with Christie earlier this year to urge him to run, announced he would support Perry. Both Romney and Perry will be pushing for the support of Christie himself, who now could become something of a 2012 GOP kingmaker. He declined to endorse a presidential candidate on Tuesday, but he promised his backing would mean something if and when he does. “I’m not a halfway kind of guy,” Christie said. His support could help give Romney credibility among the tea party conservatives who haven’t fully embraced the Massachusetts governor. And it could give Perry a way to quiet concerns about his viability. The race’s two-man dynamic has already been on display. Romney’s campaign didn’t bother to attack his Republican opponents, instead focusing on Obama, until Perry joined the race. In the weeks since Perry announced his campaign, the two men have gone after each other on immigration and Social Security. Perry’s campaign is focused almost solely on beating Romney.

LGC from page 5 as the Professional Fire Fighters of New Hampshire; the New England Police Benevolent Association; the State Employees’ Association of New Hampshire; the National Education Association of New Hampshire; the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees; and the American Federation of Teachers of New Hampshire. The firefighters’ union originally sued the center in 2010 alleging that the center was misusing health insurance premiums and not returning surplus funds to New Hampshire communities, as required by state law. The lawsuit was eventually dismissed. Mitchell, who recently retired as executive director of the Public Employees Labor Relations Board, said his contract as hearings officer for the case runs through Dec. 22. He said he was offered a longer term but didn’t think that would be necessary. The bureau’s complaint also accuses the center of violating securities laws and seeks administrative penalties. The center recently acknowledged its 2003 corporate restructuring was not done correctly and that it would return to a nonprofit status. The bureau had called the restructuring illegal and now is assessing the center’s proposed changes. from preceding page than 2008. In 2011 the cost of government consumes 61.42-percent of national income. (Yes! They have charts) Federal regulations cost U.S. businesses $ 1.75-trillion a year, 59-percent more than in 2005, according to a new report from Office of Advocacy in U.S. Small Business Administration. The cost-per-employee was $7,647 for firms with fewer than 20 employees and $5, 411 for businesses with 20 to 499 employees. Hidden taxes and fees decrease our availability cash. Dr. Steve Entin, president of the Institute for Research on Economics of Taxation states, “visibility requires that the tax system reveal clearly to citizen/ taxpayer what he or she must pay”. “Taxes should be visible to people who pay them, if people don’t accurately perceive how much government policies cost them, then how can they make informed decisions in our democratic process”. Clouded visibility misleads the average taxpayer with an accurate respect to how much we pay in taxes. The government receives the largest chunk of your money from gasoline. In 1980 a gallon of gas cost $1.11, state and federal tax amounted to 13.8cents; 1985 a gallon cost $1.19 while taxes increased to 22.0-cents. In 1997 gasoline was still low at $1.23 a gallon, but taxes had increased to $42.8-cents, a 210-percent increase. 48-percent of the cost of a gallon of gasoline goes straight to the government. Production/Exploration covers 34-percent. Wholesale 12-percent and Refining 6-percent. Excise taxes is often hidden from the consumers. Vaccination taxes: the government imposed 75-cent per dose tax: Firearms: government imposed 10-percent tax on pistols and rifles and 11-percent on cartridges: Phone taxes: first imposed to fund the Spanish-American War cost taxpayers $5 billion. 35c tax on a $1.14c loaf of bread: 18c on a 50c can of soda is taxes. There are fees and taxes on your airline ticket, your utility bill. Hotel stays average 11-percent and car rentals average 8.24-percent. Tax the rich you say? Take a look at the Internal Revenue Service’s Statistics of Income. In 2009, millionaires made up 0.1-percent, or fewer than 240,000 of the 140-million tax returns filed. Their contribution in paid taxes amount to 17-percent to 28-percent of total income tax returns per year. Hating the rich is nothing but class envy. Most did not inherit their money. Only through sweat, hard work and sleepless nights they continued to pursue their dream. Some failed at first so they tried again and again till they succeeded. Men like Bill Gates and John Huntsman did not need bureaucratic bungling to create their success and they do not need it in order to share it. Gene F. Danforth Danbury

LETTERS Do Weiner’s actions mean every Democrat is a pervert? No! To the editor, Readers of the September 23 paper might have taken a look at the letter Nancy Parsons wrote in response to my request that she supply some way for readers to confirm her charges that the Tea Party is racist and lies and so on. So she did, (kind of). Nancy tells us that Sen. Doug Leborn called Obama a “tar baby”. Then Pat Buchanan referred to the president as “boy” on the Al Sharpton show. No reason not to believe her I don’t think, but is either of those men members of a Tea Party group or is just being Republicans enough? As to racist signs down south she tells me to “get over it”, their documented, she says. I guess that’s the same as the “everyone knows” justification argument. Apparently we must take her word that southern Tea Party’s have been infiltrated by “hate groups”. Well I guess she told me! Sorry but I was unaware of the very loose criteria necessary to smear and besmirch millions honest decent people. But okay, I’ll play by Nancy’s rules. Who can forget that great former Democratic Congressmen Anthony Weiner. Yeah, the lying pervert who got his pictures out to the ladies on Facebook. Since the criteria for a smear only requires one or two odd balls then I guess Nancy must agree that she and all Democrats are smut peddling perverts. What about those union goons now that took over the port of Longview out in Seattle, smashed everything up and held several security guards hostage for several hours. A violent criminal act, therefor Nancy must recognize the she and all Democrats are smut-

peddling perverted, violent criminals. Then there was that incident where the left claimed and continues to claim that a Tea Party mob spat upon and called a group of black congressmen the “n” word numerous times. A claim long debunked so now we have it that Nancy and company must be smutpeddling, perverted, violent criminal behaving, liars. I base that completely on her criteria. Let me say right out that is pure garbage. I’ve never met Nancy Parsons but can not believe that she, or the vast majority of Democrats, are anything other then decent people caught up in the heated political rhetoric of our times. She, and most Democrats, must recognize that playing into the smear tactics of professional politician’s who have so far been unable to put forward anything resembling a viable argument to counter their critics does not put them or their party in any good light. What’s more, it shows just how desperate and unethical these pros can be. By the same token, the vast majority of Tea Party people are equally decent and honest and no more deserve to be painted with the same dirty brush, which should be reserved for those who actually say or do outrages things. Seems like all those calls for civility by the left only mean that the right must be civil but that they have a free hand to smear, lie and name call. So Nancy, you have a choice between honestly debating the positions of your party or wallowing in the mud of smear and slanders that scoundrels choose. Up to you. Steve Earle Hill

If you think this is a bad economy you haven’t seen anything yet To the editor, The U.S. economy is indeed tipping into a new recession. And there’s nothing that policy makers can do to head it off. The recession call isn’t based on just one or two leading indexes, but on dozens of specialized leading indexes, including the U.S. Long Leading Index, which was the first to turn down before the Arab Spring and Japanese earthquake to be followed by downturns in the Weekly Leading Index and other shorter leading indexes. The most reliable forwardlooking indicators are now collectively behaving as they did on the cusp of full-blown recessions. Today, the key is that cyclical weakness is spreading widely from economic indicator to indicator in a tell tale recessionary fashion. A new recession isn’t simply a statistical event. It’s a vicious cycle that, once started, must run its course. Under certain circumstances, a drop in sales, for instance, lowers production, which results in declining employment and income, which in turn weakens sales further, all the while spreading like wildfire from industry to industry, region to region, and indicator to indicator. That’s what a recession is all about. But how can we have a new recession just a couple of years after the last one officially ended? Isn’t this too short for an economic expansion? The indicators have been in place for more

than three years. Before the Lehman debacle there were already warning signs of a longstanding pattern of slowing growth. At least since the 1970s, the pace of U.S. growth, especially in GDP and jobs has been stair stepping down in successive expansions. This pattern was expected to persist in the new economic expansion after the recession ended, and it certainly did. Because the “Great Moderation” of business cycles from about 1985 to 2007 is now history, the resulting combination of higher cyclical volatility and lower trend growth virtually dictates an era of more frequent recessions. It comes as no surprise that with the latest expansion only a couple of years old, we’re already facing a new recession. Actually, such short expansions are hardly unheard of. From 1799 to 1929, nearly 90-percent of U.S. expansions lasted three years or less, as did two of the three expansions between 1970 and 1981. In other words, such short expansions are unusual only with respect to recent decades. It’s important to understand that recession doesn’t mean a bad economy we’ve had that for years now. It means an economy that keeps worsening, because it’s locked into a vicious cycle. It means that the jobless rate, already above 9-percent, will go higher, and the federal budget deficit, already

Chris Cost retires after 29-year-long career in Lakes Region law enforcement By Gail OBer


LACONIA — From the time he was in grade school in Syracuse, N.Y. , now retired Deputy Sheriff Christopher Cost knew he wanted to do something in law enforcement. Accepted into the Criminal Justice program at Northeastern University in the mid 1970s, Cost said his father, a physician, always hoped his middle child — Cost is the fourth child of seven — would be a lawyer. “I think he was a little disappointed when he found out I preferred the enforcement side,” Cost said last week. His office door plastered with “For Rent” and “Get Out” signs put there as a joke by his many coworkers, his desk and floor covered with boxes filled with personal belongings, Cost reflected for a while on his long career. After Northeastern University, Cost knew he wanted to stay in New England. “I loved Boston,” he said recalling being a relatively poor college student who would hang around outside Symphony Hall and listen to the Boston Symphony Orchestra. “I couldn’t afford tickets,” he said with a grin. Graduating in 1982, Cost like many of his generation, found himself in the middle of a recession with no job and little or no experience. Massachusetts had just passed Proposition 2 1/2 and “Prop 2 1/2” limited the amount of increase a community could level on its property taxpayers — and public service agencies were cutting back on personnel. Taking anything he could find to keep a roof over his head, Cost’s first job in “law enforcement” was as a midnight to 8 a.m. private security guard in Boston’s financial district. “My paychecks covered my room and board with just enough left over to send cover letters and resumes to every law enforcement agency in New England,” he said. “I lived by the classified section.” Cost’s first opportunity came from former Bristol Police Chief Barry Wingate in 1983 when he offered from preceding page above a trillion dollars, will soar. If you think this is a bad economy, you haven’t seen anything yet. And that has profound implications for both Main Street and Wall Street. Marc Abear Meredith



Cost a job as a patrol officer. “Now those were the old days,” he said smiling. “I got paid $11,500 a year and I had to buy my own gun — a Smith and Wesson .357 Magnum revolver.” After a year and a half in Bristol, he saw an ad for a patrol officer in Laconia and former chief Bruce Cheney hired him. “I loved Bristol,” Cost recalled saying he had a small apartment and got to know just about everyone in the small Grafton County community. “But the pay increase was for me like hitting the lottery,” he said. He made the adjustment to a city-type police department. He said the key is interacting with people. “I want them to know who I am and I want to know who they are. Good, bad or indifferent,” he said. Cost became a sergeant in Laconia but was not chosen to remain a sergeant when former Chief Bruce Babineau redesigned the command structure of the LPD. Staying on the force as a senior patrol officer, Cost was one of the first police officers who joined in the search for Robbie Mills — the 14-year old boy who was senselessly murdered Aug. 2, 1998 while he was riding his new bicycle along Messer Street. “I can still remember sitting on Wendy’s (Mills) front stoop on Isabelle Street the night he disappeared,” Cost said, his brown eyes welling at the thought. “We were each smoking a cigarette and she looked at me and told me she knew something terrible had happened.” Cost said Robbie’s body was found the next day and he was tapped to go to Wendy’s home and bring her to the police station. “One of the worst days of my life,” Cost said. Emotionally drained by the ensuing investigation, arrests and trial, Cost said former Sheriff Steve Hodges hired him to be a detective. “He took a big chance on a 40-year-old police officer,” Cost said adding that Hodges “recharged” his career when he chose him over a number of younger applicants. Cost stayed with the Belknap County Sheriff’s Department and is retiring as second in command. He also became the Sheriff’s Department prosecutor, somewhat fulfilling his father’s dream of his becoming a lawyer. Also an adjunct professor at New England College, teaching in the Criminal Justice Department, Cost said that will likely be his primary focus. see COST page 12

COST from page 10 He said he will pick up at least one additional teaching course in the spring semester but will spend his winter relaxing with his family and doing all the things around the house he’s been wanting to do. “I am a tinkerer,” he said, noting he is not allowed to go up on ladders or use chainsaws, but declined to elaborate other than to say he’s fallen off a few ladders in his day. Cost and his wife are also avid

animal lovers and have four Australian Shepherds as family pets. He said they would like to someday purchase a piece of property with acreage and own and operate a dog kennel. He said his and his wife also plan on traveling. While most of his siblings are still in Syracuse, he has family all over the country as well as “lots of places I just want to see.” “I’m still going to be around,” he said. “But 29 years is enough.”

WARDS from page one wards by extending a narrow finger of Ward 1 southward to include Bordeau’s home on Edgewater Avenue, across the street from Opechee Park and the Ward 3 polling station. The plan endorsed by the Government Operations Committee would add that portion of Ward 1 — and more — to Ward 3. The population of Laconia fell from 16,541 in 2000 to 15,951, a drop of 3-percent, reducing the ideal size of each of the six wards from 2,756 to 2,659. The 2010 populations of wards 2, 4, 5 and 6 , as currently drawn, fall between three-percent above and onepercent below the ideal, Their boundaries required no change. However, with 2,955 people ward 1 was 11-percent above the ideal and with 2,304 people ward 3 was 13-percent below it. City Manager Scott Myers said that because adjustments were required to only two of the six wards and the two abutted one another, the redistricting process was relatively straightforward. He reminded the committee that in delineating the new boundaries the interests of incumbent city councilors and locations of existing polling stations must not be considered. Planning Director Shanna Saunders prepared four options for the committee members — Councilors Ava Doyle (Ward 1), the chairman, Matt Lahey (Ward 2) and Arman Bolduc (Ward 6), who was absent. The first option simply transferred the teardrop bounded by North Main Street and Old North Main Street from ward 1 to ward 3. Despite affecting only 158 people, it left Ward 1 fivepercent above the ideal and Ward 3 seven-percent below it. The second option moved the appendage added to Ward 1 in 2001, between Folsom Street on the south, Lewis Street on the north, Pleasant Street to the west and Edgewater Avenue to the east, to Ward 3 along with a portion of Wildwood Village. Again relatively few — 172— people would be affected. But, the deviations of the ideal ward size mirrored those of the first option and it divided Wildwood Village, which is governed by one homeowners association, between two wards. The third option combined elements of the first two, adding both the teardrop described by North Main Street and Old North Main Street and the appendage at the southernmost reach of ward 1 to ward 3. Although 283 people would be moved from one ward to another, all six wards would be within three-percent — plus or minus — of the ideal.

Unlike the first three options, which shifted population from Ward 1 to Ward 3, the fourth swapped people between the two wards. The area between Lexington Drive to the north and Blueberry Lane to the south moved from ward 1 to ward 3 and an area to south east of Holman Street and north of Gale Avenue moved from ward 1 to ward 3. Altogether 867 residents of Ward 1 would find themselves in Ward 3 and 573 residents of Ward 3 would find themselves in ward 1. Myers noted that this option easily uprooted the most people without approximating the ideal ward sizes significantly more closely. Lahey asked about the prospects of drawing Ward 1 as a horseshoe enclosing most of Paugus Bay to create a ward for the greater Weirs portion of the city. While Saunders, who did the headcounting and mapping, cringed, Myers said that such an ambitious plan would require major adjustments to all six wards. Because the redistricting plan must be placed on the ballot of the presidential primary as an amendment to the City Charter, he doubted that such a major undertaking could be completed by the necessary deadline. Myers and Saunders acknowledged that all four options met the standards and recommended the third option as the least disruptive. “If the goal is minimal deviation and disruption,” said Lahey, “then it’s the third option.” Doyle agreed. Ironically, Mark Condodemetraky, who is challenging Doyle for the City Council in Ward 1, lives on Edgewater Avenue, in the very house occupied by Bordeau when he was a councilor. Myers pointed out that state law (RSA 49-C:9) provides only that a candidate must be “a registered voter in the ward in which he or she seeks election.” In other words, Condodemetraky was a resident of Ward 1 when he filed his candidacy in August and will be a resident of Ward 1 when the election is held in November. Therefore, if elected he could represent the ward for one term, after which because of redistricting he would become a resident of Ward 3. When the city was last redistricted, Bordeau, who represented Ward 1, was surprised to find that the initial plan — drawn without regard to where incumbent councilors resided — placed him in Ward 3. To protect his seat, he persuaded his colleagues to add the appendage that included his home in Ward 1. A decade later it appears that appendage will be placed back in Ward 3.

ALTON from page one schedule or included in any employee’s compensation after 20111-2012. The hourly rate for time spent serving on committees would be trimmed from 3.75-percent of the base teacher’s salary in the prior contract to one-percent, which the school board calculated would save $2,358. Although budgeted at $750, the longevity stipend, which applies to five positions, would be set at $500. The School Board pegged the new cost of the contract at an additional $23, 523, $12,492 less than that the $36,015 price tag of the agreement voters rejected in March of this year, which was attempt number three.

Although the Budget Committee unanimously endorsed the contract presented in March, it recommended against the revised agreement by a vote of four-to-two, with Marc DeCoff and Linda Goossens, the School Board representative in the minority. At the deliberative session last month Steve Miller of the Budget Committee charged that the teachers were asking for more pay “after generating the worst annual performance of the Alton Central School in the history that state elementary and middle school comparisons have existed. The school board wants us to believe,” he continued, “the new teachers’ mantra, ‘the worse you do, the more you are worth.’”

MEREDITH from page one War veteran James Gilman, who bought a lot there in 1789. A cellar hole, well and the sill of a barn a homestead of Gilman’s descendants is still visible on the land. The most notable person who lived within the parcel was Dudley Leavitt, who moved to Meredith in 1806 and established a farm that would grow to 115 acres. Leavitt did more than produce agricultural products – he was a school teacher, wrote textbooks, was a selectman and published Leavitt’s Old Farmer’s Almanack from 1797 until he died in 1851. Materials produced on the property proved valuable to the region. A quarry was operated on the property until the mid-20th century. The quarry produced a crushed stone product favored for building road beds. It is thought that the quarry’s product can be found beneath much of Route 25. The parcel’s most impressive remaining manmade feature is a large stone retaining wall, dam and sluiceway that was built by Sewall Leavitt in the 1830s. The structure was used to funnel water underneath a wheel that powered a reciprocating saw blade. According to Heyduck’s history, the mill’s products included long beams that were used to construct nearby barns. After operating it for several years, Leavitt sold the mill to John Page, for whom the pond and brook would eventually become named. The water features on the property, which made the sawmill possible 170 years ago, are still relevant to the region. Billings said the Meredith Neck watershed, which flows into Fish Cove, is one of the largest sources of water that feeds the northern half of Lake Winnipesaukee. By preserving the forest and

wetlands at the heart of that watershed, the town has also preserved the elements that contain and filter water before it enters Winnipesaukee. Those who would like to circle the abandoned quarry, see the 20-acre Page Pond or get an up-close view of the sawmill site may do so, thanks to a new and growing network of trails. Nearly five miles of trails have been established on the parcel. The trails are mostly flat and are easy to walk, although visitors should be prepared for insects and the occasional puddle. Fishing and hunting is permitted on the property, as is snowmobiling in the winter. For Billings, Page Pond and Forest is just beginning to reach its highlight. Autumn’s rich foliage, followed by winter’s stark beauty, is his favorite time of year to tread in the footsteps of Gilman, Leavitt and many other previous residents. “Snowshoeing out here is off the charts,” he said. Since the completion of the Page Pond and Forest conservation effort, John and Nancy Sherman have also conserved a contiguous 53-acre parcel, which brings the total of conserved acres to more than 600. John and Billings think there’s potential to grow that number to 1,000 acres. Why make the effort? Think of Meredith Bay, Sherman said. Today, the shore of the bay features a couple hospitality establishments in between lakeside parks. “Somebody had some foresight,” he said, and those parks were made unavailable to developers, who would otherwise have prevented the general public from enjoying the bay. “I think, 50 years from now, people will say, ‘Wow, there’s a piece of land in town that doesn’t have any buildings on it.’”

KNOX from page 2 Bay from downtown. “WELCOME HOME AMANDA,” read the marquee at a record store in the neighborhood where Knox grew up. Another welcome sign was hung at her father’s house. A bar offered half-price drinks to celebrate her acquittal. At least one TV station in Washington state tracked the progress of her flight on the air using a plane-tracking website. Knox, 24, left Perugia’s Capanne prison Monday night amid cheers that a companion compared to those at a soccer stadium. Hundreds of inmates — most of them in the men’s

wing — shouted “Amanda, ciao!” and “Freedom!” as she walked into the central courtyard, said Corrado Maria Daclon, head of the Italy-US Foundation, which championed Knox’s cause. Daclon said Knox jumped a little for joy and waved to the prisoners. She was soon on her way home, protected by the darkened windows of a Mercedes that led her out of the prison in the middle of the night, and then Tuesday morning to Rome’s Leonardo da Vinci airport. She flew from Rome to London, where she took a direct British Airways flight to Seattle, flying business class with full-length seat and menu options including champagne, smoked salmon and prawn salad.

Mollie Babcock is the homeless education liaison for the Laconia School District, which last year counted 33 students who, at some point  during the school year, qualified as homeless. She said that statistic is “trending up.” (Laconia Daily Sun photo/Adam Drapcho)

Number of homeless students enough of a concern that Laconia schools now provide staff member to act as liaison for services BY ADAM DRAPCHO THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — The city’s youngest residents have not been immune to the current and ongoing global economic slump. Mollie Babcock, the Laconia School District’s education liaison to homeless students, reported that last year the district counted 33 youngsters who qualified as homeless. She said that statistic is trending upward and thinks there are several more students who would qualify if the district was aware of their living situation. During the 2010-2011 school year, Babcock said, the district counted 20 elementary students, 10 middle schoolers and three high school students who, at one point during the year, were considered homeless by the definition employed by the district. “When most people think homeless, they think living in a box on the street,” Babcock said. Fortunately, most of the district’s homeless children are living in sheltered conditions. The district uses the definition of homelessness outlined in the McKinney-Vento Act, a federal piece of legislation which provides funding for the support of such students. According to the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, a homeless child is someone who lacks a fixed, regular and adequate night-time residence. The definition includes children and youth who share the housing of others due to loss of their own home, are living in a motel or hotel for lack of alternatives, are living in emergency shelters, are abandoned in hospitals or are awaiting foster care placement. Also included in the definition are children who are living in shelters that are “not designed for or ordinarily used as a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings,” children living in vehicles, abandoned buildings or substandard housing. Most of the district’s homeless students, historically and current, have been students living in a friend’s home because of conditions, economic or otherwise, which force them to leave their home. However, Babcock said she is seeing “more than ever” students living in tents, campers or other shelters which are inadequate for long-term residence, especially in winter conditions. Once identified by the district, homeless students are eligible for support. Babcock can arrange for the students to receive help procuring school supplies, health supplies and clothing. If the student’s new

shelter is somewhere outside of city limits, she can provide transportation so the student doesn’t have to change schools. The furthest distance the district has transported a homeless student to and from every day has been Manchester. Babcock assumed the liaison duties four years ago, prior to which Superintendent Bob Champlin fulfilled the role. Babcock said the number of students identified as homeless has been “definitely trending up” recently, and that she expects there are more students in the district that she doesn’t know about. “In my opinion, there are more students we have not identified yet,” said Babcock. The qualifying students might not be on the list because they don’t realize that they fit the school’s standard for homelessness, they might also choose to keep quiet about their condition for fear of attracting a stigma. Babcock noted that there’s no requirement that students identify themselves as homeless if they don’t want to, but, “We can better help them if we know the situation they’re living in.” The disruptions that come with a crisis such as homelessness, especially transiency, are known to detract from a student’s ability to succeed at school. Babcock’s role is to ameliorate those disruptions so that school becomes a point of stability in an otherwise tumultuous life. “When we better understand where your family is coming from, we are an incredibly supportive community and district,” Babcock said. “For children, having stability gives them a sense of security in the world. That’s something they get at school every day.” With support of district administrators, Babcock is leading workshops for teachers throughout the district, explaining which children would qualify as homeless and what services the district can provide. “I don’t want these services to not be accessed because people are afraid to speak up or they don’t know it’s available,” she said. Babcock can be reached by calling 524-8733 extension 1004, or students may speak with their guidance counselor to access services. Serving as a liaison for homeless students can be challenging, she acknowledged, but she feels its a job well worth doing. “I think it’s a great way to stay connected to the community. It saddens me that we need this position but I’m glad that there’s someone reaching out to the families.”

A Show of Hands opening at The Studio LACONIA — “The message of the handprint is ‘I was here’. The hand signifies touch, and the ability to create” says artist Tamara Wyndham, whose handprint paintings are on exhibit through the month of October at The Studio at 84 Union Avenue. Ms. Wyndham draws upon a long tradition of the handprint going back to the Paleolithic caves of 30,000 years ago. Starting with a contact print of the hand, Wyndham layers translucent colors to build up a vibrant luminosity. The layers add both physical and metaphorical substance, enhancing the original print. “Our hands create, and make us human. Because of our opposable thumb, we can grasp tools, and so express our intelligence and imagination. It is my hope that these paintings bring to the viewer an awareness of the marvel of the ability of our hands; to create, to express, to touch”. Melissa McCarthy, who runs The Studio, said that she is excited to bring this work to the Lakes Region. “Tamara is traveling from New York City to bring her work to New Hampshire for the first time, and I’m thrilled that The Studio will be the venue for this exhibit.” As part of the exhibit, The Studio is presenting a special event, “Hands Down” on Saturday, October 8 from

11 a.m.-2 p.m. in which the artist will make prints of volunteer’s hands.

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis you should take it. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You will feel compelled on some very deep level to study a person. This isn’t someone you would typically think of as a role model, but he or she embodies a quality you want to obtain. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). An average person who focuses intently can become superhuman. That’s because focus is power. You will be increasingly mindful of where you put your attention CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You simply cannot force yourself to do what you don’t want to do. On a different day, under other circumstances, you would be able to do it. But you want something else now, and your best bet is to give in to it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Perhaps your professional dealings are not as profitable as they could be because you have reasons other than financial for doing business. Keep your integrity high, and the money will follow soon. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You will be dealing with certain recurring and unhelpful thought processes. The best way is to ignore them. Tend to something else. Read a book. Look at pretty pictures. Anything to get your mind out of the negative spiral. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 5). Widely diversified interests lead to exciting friendships and/or professional developments. Partnerships stabilize in November, and you could embark on a joint project that will be many years in the making. Your industrious nature will net you an award in December. Family celebrates you throughout 2012. Leo and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 2, 24, 37 and 31.

by Chad Carpenter

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your observations are astute, especially in regard to a certain colleague. You might not like what you surmise from watching this person; however, you can use the information to your advantage. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll express the creativity inside of you. You probably don’t even realize it’s there, but once you get in motion, you are suddenly amazed at the results. It won’t feel like you’re the one making it happen. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You have the courage to move forward in spite of your fear. It’s not something you have to develop. There is bravery in you, and all you have to do is remember it’s there. It powers you ever forward. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your tendency toward perfectionism will be prominent. You’ll find that it’s not enough to do a fine job. You’ll keep going with the job until you reach the stellar result to which you are accustomed. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You will be suddenly struck with the impulse to give yourself something you really, really want. The feeling is similar to the way you realize that if you don’t transfer money into your account, you could bounce a check. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll trace a zigzag course through this day. There’s a logic to this. Perhaps it hardly makes sense, but trust that you have your reasons. Luckily, you won’t have to report to anyone else or explain yourself. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your ego hardly ever needs as much attention as the other guy’s. That’s why you usually wind up doing the stroking instead of getting stroked. Well, it’s your turn, and

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Wednesday, Oct. 5, the 278th day of 2011. There are 87 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 5, 1921, the World Series was covered on radio for the first time as Newark, N.J., station WJZ relayed reports from the Polo Grounds, where the New York Giants were facing the New York Yankees. (Although the Yankees won the opener, 3-0, the Giants won the series, 5 games to 3.) On this date: In 1892, the Dalton Gang, notorious for its train robberies, was practically wiped out while attempting to rob a pair of banks in Coffeyville, Kan. In 1931, Clyde Pangborn and Hugh Herndon completed the first non-stop flight across the Pacific Ocean, arriving in Washington state some 41 hours after leaving Japan. In 1941, former Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis — the first Jewish member of the nation’s highest court — died in Washington at age 84. In 1947, President Harry S. Truman delivered the first televised White House address as he spoke on the world food crisis. In 1953, Earl Warren was sworn in as the 14th chief justice of the United States, succeeding Fred M. Vinson. In 1981, President Ronald Reagan signed a resolution granting honorary American citizenship to Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg, credited with saving thousands of Hungarians, most of them Jews, from the Nazis during World War II. In 1988, Democrat Lloyd Bentsen lambasted Republican Dan Quayle during their vice-presidential debate, telling Quayle, “Senator, you’re no Jack Kennedy.” One year ago: President Barack Obama convened the first-ever White House summit on community colleges, calling them the “unsung heroes of America’s education system.” Today’s Birthdays: “Family Circus” cartoonist Bil Keane is 89. Actress Glynis Johns is 88. Comedian Bill Dana is 87. Actress Diane Cilento is 78. Rhythm-and-blues singer Arlene Smith is 70. Singer Richard Street is 69. Singer-musician Steve Miller is 68. Rock singer Brian Johnson is 64. Actress Karen Allen is 60. Rock musician David Bryson is 57. Rock singer and faminerelief organizer Bob Geldof is 57. Architect Maya Lin is 52. Actor Daniel Baldwin is 51. Rock singer-musician Dave Dederer is 47. Actor Guy Pearce is 44. Actress Josie Bissett is 41. Singer-actress Heather Headley is 37. Pop-rock singer Colin Meloy is 37. Rock musician Brian Mashburn is 36. Actress Parminder Nagra is 36. Actor Scott Weinger is 36. Actress Kate Winslet is 36. Rock musician James Valentine (Maroon 5) is 33.

Piche’s hosts the open house each year to feature all that is new in alpine, cross-country, and snowboard equipment and fashions for the upcoming season. It is also the time

of year when winter sports enthusiasts begin to think about getting their equipment tuned-up and ready for when the snow arrives. “The release of Carol’s book coincides so nicely with our open house,” said Pat Bolduc of Piche’s. “We’re excited to have a book signing here. It adds a totally different dimension to this event.” The public is invited to attend; free refreshments will be served. Anderson will have copies of her books for sale on Saturday. For more information, call Piche’s in Gilford at 524-2068. .

Thrift Shop ‘from the waist down’ sale underway

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, October 5, 2011— Page 25


Dear Annie: I would like to know the proper way to dispose of pain medications when a loved one passes away. Quite recently, my sister’s friend’s husband died from cancer. Two days later, my sister and her friend were trying to sell his unused Oxycontin and morphine. I find this appalling. I have read that it is not wise to flush the meds down the toilet because it affects our drinking water. So, please tell us the proper way of disposal. -- Confused in My State Dear Confused: How nice that your sister wants to be a drug pusher. Studies have found traces of painkillers, estrogen, antidepressants, blood-pressure medicines and other pharmaceuticals in water samples. The medications you cite are classified as controlled substances and cannot be legally donated or dispensed. Unless the labeling specifically says to flush them, the DEA does not recommend sending any medications down the toilet. Instead, it encourages bringing unwanted medications to community take-back collections. Readers can check with their pharmacy for drug recycling or community take-back programs. If there are no such programs near you, contact your state and local waste management authorities. Unused medications can also be ground up or dissolved in a small amount of water or alcohol, and mixed with coffee grounds or kitty litter, and then put in a small sealable plastic bag and hidden in the trash. Please help your sister get rid of these medications properly before she gets arrested. Dear Annie: I am a doctor working in a medium-sized medical practice. It was a great place to work until we hired “Dr. Judy,” an aggressive physician who tried to get others fired. When her chances of becoming a partner disappeared, she abruptly left, taking a lot of staff with her. She

set up shop a few miles away and is actively recruiting our clients. One of the other doctors on our staff went on disability and instead of returning to us, went to work for Dr. Judy, saying the hours were shorter and there would be less stress. This same doctor is getting married next month. The owner of our practice was extremely disappointed that she left us and decided not to attend the wedding. However, I have remained good friends with her. Should I attend her wedding, possibly offending my colleague whom I respect a great deal? Or should I politely decline and send a gift? -- Not Sure What To Do Dear Not Sure: Your colleague has not given you any ultimatums and isn’t likely to do anything to antagonize those physicians who are still loyal to the practice. You are entitled to have a life outside of the office. If you want to attend the wedding, by all means go. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Lonesome,” the 65-year-old single woman who complained that she didn’t have any friends to shop or have lunch with. I was doing OK with that letter until she said, “Senior groups are 10 years too old for me.” It’s no wonder she has no friends. I’m 60. One of my best friends died last year at the age of 87. I knew her for four years and was lucky to know her. It did not matter how old she was. She had a great sense of humor and was full of life. Every precious minute I spent with her was a gift. Maybe “Lonesome” should rethink what it means to be a friend. -- Honored To Have Known Her Dear Honored: We completely agree that age should not be a factor in choosing one’s friends. Whether older or younger, one can find shared interests and true camaraderie.

LRGH holding annual Health Fair on October 13 Squam Lake Association’s fall celebration is Saturday

LACONIA — The Lakes Region General Hospital Auxiliary will host its 10th Annual Fall Craft Fair on Saturday, October 15, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at Laconia High School. Proceeds from this annual event benefit the LRGHealthcare Breast Health Program – a program which offers support and education to women in our community who are facing a potential or current diagnosis of breast cancer. Back in 2002 the LRGH Auxiliary was asked to partner with the Breast Health Program in order to raise funds for a new “Comfort Bag” project, providing a thoughtful and very practical gift to women facing a diagnosis of breast cancer. The first craft fair was held in October of 2002 and shortly thereafter LRGHealthcare patients would receive a bag containing supplies to assist with education and recovery after breast cancer surgery. Since that first craft fair over $45,000 has been raised through the efforts of dozens of Auxiliary members and hospital volunteers. These funds have allowed the group to provide 466 Comfort Bags. Women who have received these Comfort Bags after breast cancer surgery have expressed sincere appreciation. The doctors and staff at LRGHealthcare are always working to increase awareness about the importance of early detection, and to remind the public that they have access to the very best technology. For a limited time, patients who qualify based on financial guidelines can now receive FREE digital
