Council eliminates on-street parking at 2 Lakeport locations By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — The City Council this week restricted on-street parking on several streets in Lakeport on the recommendation of the Department of Public Works and with the support of City Councilor Armand Bolduc (Ward 6). Parking will be prohibited on the east side of Belvedere Street from its intersection with North Street to the south and School Street to the north. Belvedere Street carries two-way traffic. The council recognized that the congregation of the Bible Speaks Church, located on the west side of Belvedere Street, relies on onstreet parking. However, the width of the street is not sufficient to accommodate parking on both sides without hindering the flow of traffic and passage of emergency vehicles. With the opening of a municipal parking lot on Manchester Street, the council agreed to ease the congestion around Sanborn Park by forbidding on-street parking in the vicinity. Parking will be prohibited on both sides of Mechanic Street see PaRKInG page 8

Near zero public interest in water rate hike Laconia pumping as much as 1/3 less water out of Paugus Bay than was true just a few years ago By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — Following a public hearing Monday evening, the Water Commission unanimously approved the first rate increase since 2007. Superintendent Seth Nuttleman recommended raising the usage rate 30 cents, from $1.15 per 100 cubic feet (hcf), or 748 gallons, to $1.45 per hcf, while holding the base rate at $20 per quarter.
For the average household of four, using 25 hcf a quarter, the annual cost of water would increase by $30, from $195 to $225, or from $0.53 to $0.62 per day. Nuttleman pointed out that despite the rate increase the average resident will pay slightly more than one cent a gallon for water. Paul Dibona, chairman of the commission explained that the rate increase was required to bridge the gap between rising operating expenses and falling water con-
sumption. While the cost of fuel, electricity and chemicals have increased during the past five years, the volume of water billed has decreased by approximately 11-percent, he said. Nuttleman told the commission that on a recent “slow day’ the department pumped less than a million gallons of water, noting that a few years ago on a “slow day” it pumped 1.5-million gallons. He estimated see waTeR page 10

Erica Blizzard’s boating privileges case before Supreme Court today By lynne tuohy ASSOCIATED PRESS
CONCORD (AP) — A New Hampshire woman who killed her best friend in a boating accident wants her boating privileges restored. The lawyer for 38-year-old Erica Blizzard of Laconia will argue before the New Hampshire Supreme Court on Wednesday Fuel Oil OIL & PROPANE CO., INC. that state law governing 10 day cash price* Laconia 524-1421 subject to change her three-year suspen-
sion is unconstitutionally vague. Blizzard was convicted of negligent homicide for failing to keep a proper look-out. Her best friend, 34-year-old Stephanie Beaudoin of Meredith, was killed in the Father’s Day 2008 accident. Blizzard and another friend, Nicole Shinopulos of Burlington, Mass., were seriously injured. Attorney Jim Moir, who represents Blizzard, says the law doesn’t specify lengths of suspensions for specified offenses. The law, he stated in court documents, “fails to set any limits on the length of suspensions.”
Moir called the three-year suspension “unexplained, unguided and arbitrary.” He also said state officials never specified which provision of the law they were invoking to issue the suspension. “There are hundreds of distinct provisions,” said Moir, noting that one ground for suspension is “improper snorkeling.” Mark Seymour, the Department of Public Safety hearing officer who issued the suspension in June 2010, said boating privileges can be suspended for any period of see BLIZZaRd page 10

Postal Service has lost $5.1B over last 12 months; owes huge payment to retirement fund
WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Postal Service said Tuesday it has lost $5.1 billion in the past year, pushing it closer to imminent default on a multibillion-dollar payment and to future bankruptcy as the weak economy and increased Internet use drive down mail volume. The financial losses for the year ended Sept. 30 came despite deep cuts of more than 130,000 jobs in recent years and the closing of some smaller local post offices. Losses will only accelerate in the coming year, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe warned, citing fasterthan-expected declines in first-class mail. He implored Congress to take swift, wide-ranging action to stabilize the ailing agency’s finances as it nears a legal deadline Friday to pay $5.5 billion into the U.S. Treasury for future retiree health benefits. Congress is expected to grant a reprieve, but see USPS page 4

E-mail & TV talk add news twists to Penn State case STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — A former Penn State graduate assistant cited by a grand jury report as claiming he saw an ex-assistant football coach sexually abusing a young boy in a campus locker room shower says in an email he made sure the act was stopped and then went to police — contradicting what the report says. Mike McQueary’s comments, in an email made available to The Associated Press on Tuesday, appeared to add more confusion to a scandal that has enveloped the university and resulted in the firing of head
coach Joe Paterno, the ousting of president Graham Spanier and charges of perjury against the athletic director and a senior vice president. McQueary, now the football team’s wide receivers coach, told a friend from Penn State that he made sure the 2002 shower assault he witnessed was stopped and went to the police about it. The friend made McQueary’s email, written Nov. 8, available to the AP on Tuesday on the condition he not be identified. McQueary, who has been placed on
administrative leave and did not coach in Saturday’s 17-14 loss to Nebraska, wrote: “I did stop it, not physically ... but made sure it was stopped when I left that locker room ... I did have discussions with police and with the official at the university in charge of police .... no one can imagine my thoughts or wants to be in my shoes for those 30-45 seconds ... trust me.” Added McQueary: “Do with this what you want ... but I am getting hammered for handling this the right way ... or what I see PENN STATE page 11
NEW YORK (AP) — Crackdowns against the Occupy Wall Street encampments across the country reached the epicenter of the movement Tuesday, when police rousted protesters from a Manhattan park and a judge ruled that their free speech rights do not extend to pitching a tent and setting up camp for months at a time. It was a potentially devastating setback. If crowds of demonstrators return to Zuccotti Park, they will not be allowed to bring
tents, sleeping bags and other equipment that turned the area into a makeshift city of dissent. But demonstrators pledged to carry on with their message protesting corporate greed and economic inequality, either in Zuccotti or a yet-to-be chosen new home. “This is much bigger than a square plaza in downtown Manhattan,” said Hans Shan, an organizer who was working with churches to find places for protesters to
sleep. “You can’t evict an idea whose time has come.” State Supreme Court Justice Michael Stallman upheld the city’s eviction of the protesters after an emergency appeal by the National Lawyers Guild. The protesters have been camped out in the privately owned park since mid-September. Mayor Michael Bloomberg said he ordered the sweep because health and see OCCUPY page 8

Subdivided Laconia tract tied up in FRM mess sold to mysterious Rhode Island company for $115,000 BY GAIL OBER
LACONIA — A federal bankruptcy court judge ordered the prospective residential development known as Apple Ridge sold yesterday to the highest bidder — ADROC, LLC, a Rhode Island company that submitted a last-minute bid for the 15.3 acre parcel near Rte. 106 South. ADROC, a company whose court paperwork lists it as a Central Falls, R.I.-based comapny bid $115,000 for the property — $15,000 more than than offered by N.H. developer Richard Anagnost. The bid tendered on the day before the scheduled bankruptcy trustee auction on Monday. ADROC also agreed to provide the city with a $175,000 performance bond on the property before the closing. That bond will replace one already in hand at City Hall. Phil Brouillard is the attorney listed for ADROC, which, according to an employee at the N.H. Dept. of the Secretary of State, filed its registration paperwork for New Hampshire yesterday — the day after it was awarded the sale. The paperwork submitted to U.S. Federal Bankruptcy Court, N.H., said the ADROC, LLC has an address of 501 Roosevelt Ave. Suite 201 in Central Falls, R.I and is managed by Jeffrey Karll. A representative of the Rhode Island Secretary of State’s Office said Monday she has no listing for ADROC, LLC in Central Falls, R.I. A representative of Lenox Property Management Co. said Monday that Suite 201 was empty and that’s its tenant had just recently moved. Asst. Planner Seth Creighton said Brouillard came to the Laconia Planning Office with a check yesterday for the $175,000 but later took the check back, telling Creighton that said he called ADROC after he dropped off the escrow check and they told him “that they don’t have any paper work yet, so they suggest he not move too quickly.” Apple Ridge and the Provencal Park Realty Trust were involved in a $33-million Ponzi scheme orchestrated by Scott Farah formerly of Financial Resource Mortgage Inc of Meredith. It was almost two years ago to the day that the Ponzi collapsed leaving hundreds of people who lent money through Farah and his partner Donald Dodge out of their life savings. The two men, through their respective companies, FRM and CL&M were supposed
to, in turn, finance various developers to do improvements on the properties. Farah is serving a 15-year sentence for wire and mail fraud in a medium security federal prison in Pennsylvania and Dodge is serving a six year sentence for mail fraud in a minimum security federal penitentiary, also in Pennsylvania. Farah and Dodge promised high interest rates to the individual lenders explaining the loans were short term, generally 12 to 18 months, and would be repaid once the developers were able to get conventional financing from commercial banks. Many of the lenders were paid some interest, but most were never repaid any principal. In addition, a number of the developers have come forward and said they were never given the loans they arranged through Farah and Dodge to complete the build outs. Most of them also lost millions of dollars. In the case of Apple Ridge, federal court documents indicate the property was owned by Susan Farah, Scott Farah’s wife and Scott Farah and Brouillard were the co-trustees. Mortgages on the undeveloped property, valued by the city of Laconia by its on-line assessing company at $106,000 for the part of Provencal Road and $83,400 for the part of Apple Ridge Road, were issued to various lenders for upwards of $2.3 million. Because the site plan permits for Apple Ridge are set to expire in 90 days unless the property was sold or transferred, bankruptcy Trustee Steven Notinger said a quick sale of the property would be best for his role in sorting through the various FRM/ CLM assets and retrieving as much of any real assets as possible for future redistribution to the victims. To date, bankruptcy court documents indicate the bankruptcy trustee firm Donchess and Notinger has been paid $1.06-million in fees in five separate installments since the case began in late 2009. In addition, $250,000 was paid to the accounting firm of Verdolino and Lowey. The above figures do not include expenses or fees paid to other organizations or people for consultations and other research. Notinger’s attorney, Deborah Notinger did not return a phone call for this story. Of the $115,000 sales price, the city of Laconia will get about $13,000 in back taxes and the balance will be held in the estate of CL&M until further order of the court.
USPS from page one that will only delay the day of reckoning for an agency struggling for relevance in an electronic age. Based on current losses, the Postal Service says it will run out of money — or come dangerously close — next September, forcing it to halt service. “We are at a point where we require urgent action,” Donahoe said. In the event of a shutdown, private companies such as FedEx and UPS could handle a small portion of the material the post office moves, but they
do not go everywhere. No business has shown interest in delivering letters everywhere in the country for a set rate of 44 cents for a first-class letter. For the fiscal year ended Sept. 30, the post office had income of $65.7 billion, down $1.4 billion from the previous year. Expenses totaled $70.6 billion. The loss of $5.1 billion was less than a previous estimate of $10 billion, but only because the $5.5 billion payment — originally due Sept. 30 — was deferred until Nov. 18 with the see next page

Huot planners learn heating plants more compact now BY GAIL OBER
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — School Board member Malcolm Murray last night told his colleagues the new boiler system at the renovated and expanded Huot Regional Technical Education Center will fit into the space now allotted for the current heating plant. He said it’s good news because architects and engineers had initially thought they would have to built a new room to accommodate the upgrade. He said architects designing the Huot expansion said the new 4-boiler plant should be able to accommodate any future expansion at the high school as well. Murray is also a member of the committee that is supervising the Huot Center project. Business Administrator Ed Emond remarked that heating technology had come so far so fast that the new boilers are half of the size of the ones in the
Middle School — finished just a few years ago. In addition, the two houses the School District purchased on Dewey Street are gone and the area had been back-filled with clean soil. That space will be used for a new Huot Center building on the High School campus. Superintendent Bob Champlin said there is a minor issue with a coal bin the district thought had been removed but said the engineers are working on a solution. Emond and Murray said the next Huot Center building committee meeting is Nov. 30 at the Harvard Street School at 6 p.m. and it is anticipated the architects will have some near complete renditions of the exterior of the Dewey Street addition. In other action, the School Board elected Bob Dassatti to his second consecutive term as board chair. Stacy Sirois, serving her second three-year term from Ward 5 was elected vice-chair.

N.H. seeking bids to build and operate private prisons
CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire is seeking bids from private businesses to build and operate one or more state prisons. Gov. John Lynch said Tuesday the state has issued three requests for proposals — one to build and operate a prison for male inmates, one for a female prison and one for a facility that would house both male and female inmates. He says the requests don’t obligate the state to privatize its prisons but offer a way to compare that approach to the cost of a statefinanced, state-run prison. Lynch says the Concord state prison and women’s prison in Goffstown are aging, inefficient and costly to repair.
from preceding page approval of Congress. In 2010, losses totaled $8.5 billion. Mail volume this past year totaled 168 billion pieces, compared with 171 billion in 2010, a decline of 1.7 percent. At the same time volume was declining, the post office was required to begin service to thousands of new addresses to accommodate population growth and new businesses. The Postal Service, an independent agency of government that does not receive tax money for its operations, is not seeking federal funds. Instead, postal officials want changes in the way they operate so they can save money. They have asked Congress for permission to reduce mail delivery to five days a week, which many lawmakers oppose, and to eliminate or reduce the annual payments of about $5.5 billion to prefund retiree health benefits. The agency also wants the return of at least $6.9 billion it says was overpaid into federal retirement funds. The service also seeks more layoffs, which are barred by current contracts with its employee unions, and the authority to negotiate with unions on a possible alternate health care system that would cost less. Postal Service losses have been mounting over the past few years as more private mail and bill payments have been switched to the Internet, and the recession has hurt returns on advertising and other business mail. Of particular concern has been the decline in lucrative first-class mail, largely consisting of personal letters and cards, bills, payments and similar items.

Return of the War Party? Is a vote for the Republican Party in 2012 a vote for war? Is a vote for Mitt Romney or Newt Gingrich a vote for yet another unfunded war of choice, this time with a nation, Iran, three times as large and populous as Iraq? Mitt says that if elected he will move carriers into the Persian Gulf and “prepare for war.” Newt is even more hawkish. America should continue “taking out” Iran’s nuclear scientists — i.e., assassinating them — but military action will probably be needed. Newt is talking up uber-hawk John Bolton for secretary of state. Rick Santorum has already called for U.S.-Israeli strikes: “Either we’re going to stop them ... or take the long term consequences of having a nuclear Iran trying to wipe out the state of Israel.” But if Iran represents, as Bibi Netanyahu is forever reminding us, an “existential threat,” why does not Israel itself, with hundreds of nuclear weapons, deal with it? Bibi’s inaction speaks louder than Bibi’s words. He wants the Americans to do it. For the retired head of Mossad, Meir Dagan, calls attacking Iran “the stupidest thing I have ever heard of.” He means stupid for Israel. Why? Because an Israeli attack would be costly in planes and pilots, and only set back Iran’s nuclear program. And such a pre-emptive strike would unify Iranians behind the regime. Moreover, Israel would be inviting Tehran’s ally Hezbollah to rain down rockets on Israel, igniting another of the bloody Lebanon wars that Israel was desperate to end the last time. As for the United States, the only way we could eliminate Iran’s nuclear program would be days of air and missile strikes. Iran could retaliate by cutting off oil exports and mining the Strait of Hormuz, tripling the world price of oil, and hurling the European Union and United States into recession. Iran could also turn Hezbollah loose on Americans in Lebanon and urge Shias to attack U.S. troops, diplomats and civilians in Bahrain, Iraq and Afghanistan, and here in the United States. No one knows how this would end. A U.S.-Iran war could force us to march to Tehran to remove the Islamic regime and scour that huge country to ensure that it was shorn of weapons of mass destruction — for an Islamic regime that survived a U.S. war would be hellbent on acquiring the bomb to pay us back. Yet, we lack a large enough army to occupy Iran. And why should thousands more Americans have to die or come home to be fitted for metal limbs so Israel can remain sole proprietor of a nuclear weapon from Morocco to Afghanistan? And where is the hard evidence Iran
is acquiring nukes? The U.S. intelligence community declared in December 2007, with “high confidence,” that Iran was no longer seeking nuclear weapons. It has never rescinded that declaration. And there is no conclusive evidence in that media-hyped report last week from the International Atomic Energy Agency that Iran is for certain building nuclear weapons. Indeed, that report was exposed as the work of incompetents within hours. Relying on intelligence agencies, the IAEA said a top Russian nuclear weapons scientist had been instructing Iranians for years. The scientist turns out to be V.I. Danilenko, who has no expertise in nuclear weapons, but is a specialist in using conventional explosives to produce nanodiamonds for the manufacture of lubricants and rubber. Are we being lied and stampeded into yet another war by the same propagandists who gave us the yellow-cake-from-Niger forgeries? Bibi calls Mahmoud Ahmadinejad another Hitler and says we are all in 1939 again. But is this credible? True, Ahmadinejad hosted a Holocaust conference featuring David Duke and said Israel should be wiped off the map, but he does not control Iran’s military, has lost favor with the ayatollah, and has been threatened with impeachment. Ahmadinejad is a lame duck with less than two years left in his term. Is mighty Israel afraid of this man? Told that the IAEA said Iran was actively pursuing nuclear weapons, Ahmadinejad laughed: “The Iranian nation is wise. It won’t build two bombs against 20,000 (nuclear) bombs you (Americans) have.” Does he not have a point? How would an Iranian bomb secure Iran, when Israel’s nuclear arsenal would be put on a hair trigger, and Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Egypt would then rush to get their own bombs? In that South Carolina debate, Ron Paul, the one person there proven right on Iraq, was given less than 90 seconds to speak. Under the Constitution, said Paul, no president has the right to launch an unprovoked attack on Iran without congressional authorization. Before America goes to war with Iran, let Congress, whose members are forever expressing their love for the Constitution, follow it, and vote on war with Iran. And before we go to the polls in 2012, let’s find out if the GOP is becoming again the same old War Party that bankrupted the nation. (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 Hampshire Republican Primary in 1996.)
LETTERS Selectman’s position is incompatible with other hats she wears To the editor, Conflict of interest? It may be a grey area of RSA-669, but what is right is right and what is wrong is wrong! On November 14, I attended the Gilmanton selectmen’s meeting to raise a concern regarding conflict of interest. In a 2002 article “Knowing the territory – A survey of Municipal Law for NH Local Officials” it states the following: B. Common Law Incompatibility. Two positions might be incompatible even though they are not listed in RSA 669:7 or any other statute. Whenever two positions bear a special
relationship to each other, one being subordinate to and interfering with the other, with inconsistent “loyalties” or responsibilities, then the person cannot legally hold both positions. The concern is over a member of our Board of Selectmen who is married to the chairperson on the School Board, works as the Administrative Assistant to the School Superintendent, takes minutes for the School Board and also the Budget Committee. Does that raise a conflict in your mind? Cindy L. Houghton Gilmanton Iron Works
School that needed to borrow is now returning $521,000? To the editor, In reading the meeting minutes of both the Gilmanton Selectboard and the Gilmanton School Board, it is now clear that many missteps were made in their recent conflict. At the time that the school administration was requesting funds, their own report showed that their daily account balance averaged over $1-million and that they earned $8,900 in interest on money they were holding, even though they are not allowed to have a fund balance. As of September 15, 2011, the school
administration acknowledges that it will be returning $521,000 of our money. This amount was determined by an audit. All this information is public record. Any citizen can get copies of any public record by going to the appropriate office with the form “Right-to-Know” request, pursuant to RSA 91-A. Again, where are your selected school board members while the school administration speaks for them. Douglas Isleib Gilmanton
When truth is simple, having high IQ sometimes gets in your way To the editor, A major difference between the way a Christian views the world and the way a secularist views it is that the Christian understands the fallen nature of man, that our flesh is corrupt and sinful. The only solution to that problem is to receive God’s forgiveness for our sin through Jesus Christ. When we do this and commit the rest of our life to Christ, the Spirit of God takes up residence in our heart and enables us to walk in a Godly manner according to our cooperation
with His Holy Spirit. We understand that all efforts made in the flesh apart from God are futile. When secularists develop all these schemes believing that human nature will reform itself, it sometimes seems rather comical. This is not due to pessimism. This is understanding marveling at naivety. When the truth is simple, sometimes having a high IQ only gets in your way. John Demakowski Franklin
Thanks to mailman for being concerned about my well being To the editor, During a recent trip I was pleased to find out that I was missed by our mailman in Lakeport.

LETTERS We need our reps to put our country ahead of their parties To the editor, On October 11, the U.S. Senate passed legislation that would penalize China for keeping their currency exchange rate artificially low. The bill would apply sanctions on any country that trades their currency lower than it should be against the dollar. Within an hour House Speaker Boehner announced that the House would not take up the bill stating that it would “start a trade war”. In case no one has noticed we have been in a trade war with China for at least 15 years and we have all but lost that war. All anyone has to do to see the effects of it is to drive across Vermont on Rte. 11 and pass all the closed factories and warehouses. Our trade deficit with China last year was $270-billion and is expected to be $300-billion this year. The Chinese have kept their currency low, subsidized their industries and if that weren’t enough used our money to buy a trillion dollars of our national debt that they use as an insurance policy they hold over our head. What Speaker Boehner doesn’t want isn’t a trade war, we already have that. He is terrified that if we anger the Chinese they will start to unwind their huge U.S. bond position, and that will drive up interest rates and put the country back in recession. So we do nothing? The first thing we should do is pass the currency bill in the House to let the Chinese know we mean business.
Then a serious look at holding Chinese imports to some percentage of matching U.S. exports needs to be negotiated. Business as usual has to stop. The government needs to put a program in place that will allow U.S. companies to repatriate their overseas profits that are held offshore when they bring jobs back to the U.S. A tax credit program to write off the costs of reopening plants here should be developed and passed by the Congress immediately. I recently heard a talking head on a business show say when asked what we need to do get the economy going, “We need to go out and spend, we are in a consumer economy”. Really, the United States of America is going to come out of the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression by selling Chinese crap to each other. The Administration can’t seem to propose anything that doesn’t first and foremost benefit a host of unions and the Republicans don’t really do . . . anything. We need our representatives in Washington to put the country ahead of their party and the next election cycle and actually work on getting our manufacturing base back and working. If it causes a trade war than so be it. But doing nothing shouldn’t be an option. I contacted both Congressman Guinta and Bass for their position on the Currency Bill and have not had a response to date. James Edgar Meredith

Gunstock owes a lot, including discounts, to the county taxpayers To the editor, The Belknap County Convention (Delegation) filled the vacancy for the 5-year seat on the Gunstock Resort Commission. Mr. Gammon was not the anointed one. A major issue that was discussed was one of Mr. Gammon’s goals to reestablish “Discounted Lift Tickets for Belknap County residents”. Gunstock’s Commission is ignoring that Belknap County residence made the resort possible. The current position of Belknap County skiers having to pay the same ski lift ticket costs as non-county or out-of-state skiers is an issue that must be re-visited by the Gunstock Commission. The commission’s position was restated during the incumbent’s interview: the county taxpayers are not the skiers who make the operation financially feasible, it’s the tourist that do. If that were a fact, then a “Discount County Resident Lift Ticket” would not impact the gross revenues any more that giving FREE Ski
Lift tickets to all employee and others. In fact, the Gunstock Resort is not just a snow season enterprise, but is a three season enterprise with the goal of four seasons. The fact is, if it were not for the full faith and credit of Belknap County taxpayers, Gunstock would not have survived. In fact, because the taxpayers assumed the huge Gunstock debt and the use of full faith and credit word of the county taxpayers, Gunstock would not be as profitable today. Gunstock uses the county’s good name a credit to borrow at rates below those available to comparable public enterprises. It’s time Belknap County skiers and taxpayers attend the Gunstock Commission meetings to stand up and be counted. The meetings are no longer held in the back room offices in the Lodge, but are held in the ticket office which has an occupancy permit and accommodating seating. Thomas A. Tardif Laconia

As low as
Right-to-Work will give all N.H. workers the freedom they deserve To the editor, Far too many of the workers in New Hampshire are currently trapped in a system that does not work for them. The system works instead for the labor unions and these trapped workers as you can probably guess are employed by the same labor unions. It’s a vicious cycle that can and must be broken. We need to demonstrate our trust in New Hampshire workers by allowing them greater freedom at their place of employment, including allowing them to decide if they want to be a part of a labor union, a right they currently do
not have. As is usually the case in these unfortunate situations, those with the fewest other options are the most likely to be trapped into these sort of “join a union or be fired” scenarios. This is unfair and something we should not tolerate. Therefore I ask that our legislators make New Hampshire a Right-ToWork state and give all New Hampshire workers the freedom they deserve.

SWIFTS from page one will be sold for attendance at the Dec. 11 concert. The Pemigewasset Choral Society was founded in 1973, with Earl Norwood as its first conductor. Norwood’s retirement from the role coincided with Bob’s arrial at Plymouth State College (now Plymouth State University) as a professor of music. Making the move with him was his wife Margot, who was also a member of the school’s music faculty until she retired in 2002. During his first semester at Plymouth, said Bob, “The previous director couldn’t continue, so I was asked to take one of the rehearsals.” Choir members – there were about 40 at the time – liked him enough that they asked him to stay on. The following year, 1980, the choir’s accompanist left the group and Margot stepped in. Between the two of them, they’ve racked up more than two-thirds of a century of service to the choral society. After the Dec. 11 performance, they’ll make a graceful departure from the group. “It just is time,” said Bob. “We love it, it’s better to quit while you’re ahead.” The society has decided who will
succeed Bob, though an official announcement has yet to be made. Under the Swifts’ leadership, a young choral society grew into a robust and celebrated group. Membership, at about 140, is more than triple the size when they first joined the group, and performances typically start with a packed house and end with a standing ovation. For the Swifts, the Pemigewasset Choral Society illustrates how music can bring together people who might otherwise never meet. Music, it turns out, is what brought together Bob and Margot when they were both high school-aged and living in upstate New York. Bob’s father – the tree near which the apple fell – was a music professor and choir director who started the New York State Music Camp. It was at the camp that Margot and Bob’s paths would first intersect. They will celebrate the 49th anniversary of their union next week. The results of a survey of choir members earlier this month reveals the diversity of the membership. They are five members younger than 25 and 33 older than 75. Choir members reported working in 32 different fields,

including farmers, carpenters, psychotherapists and a ship’s captain. They travel from as far as northern Vermont, Concord and Maine to weekly rehearsals. Birthplaces include 24 states and three European countries. About as many members have had singing lessons as have not. Contributing to the choir’s character is the fact that there’s no audition process to join. As Bob said, the requirements are “A love of music, a love of singing and can commit to the rehearsal time.” Borrowing a phrase from the years they spent at Memphis State University, Margot said, “Y’all come sing – it’s that kind of philosophy.” “It’s such a fellowship, people enjoy each other’s company,” said Bob, noting that some members of the choir have been around since its founding. A handful of Plymouth State University students are permitted to sing in the choir for class credit, though most positions are reserved for members of the general community. The choir’s season begins in September, when members attend weekly rehearsals to prepare for December performances. After about a month off, the choir reconvenes to rehearse for a spring concert series. Material used includes major works such as Haydn’s “The Creation” or Handle’s “Messiah.” The choir also will sing
spirituals, early music or jazz pieces. Every other summer, the choir has embarked on a tour. They’ve traveled several times to Canada, have been to the United Kingdom and most recently on a cruise to Bermuda. Their most profound experience with the choir came not from an international tour or even a local concert, it came during one of their regularly scheduled rehearsals, the one held immediately after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Bob recalled how the group closed the rehearsal by singing, “America the Beautiful,” and how, due to tightening throats, some of the lyrics were difficult to sing, such as, “O beautiful for patriot dreams that sees beyond the years/Thine alabaster cities gleam undimmed by human tears.” “That was one of the most powerful experiences of my life,” said Bob. “It as an affirmation of what the country stands for.” “It’s an emotional thing because it bonds everyone together,” added Margot. After nearly four decades of sharing the bond of “tons and tons of music,” she said they refer to the choir as their “second family.” “I wish they wouldn’t make so much of us, the choir will go on,” said Bob, though he added, “They’re the most wonderful people in the world. It’s going to be very difficult to stop.”
PARKING from page one between Clinton Street and Manchester Street and on both sides of Manchester Street between Mechanic Street and Willow Street. In addition, overnight parking will be banned in the municipal parking lot at the corner of Manchester Street and Willow Street. NOTE: City Manager Scott Meyers reported that the value of new construction, represented by the difference between the value of building and demolition permits, through the first seven months of the tax year (April to April) was $11.4-million, more than the $9.7-million posted in 2010, but less than the $12.2-million posted in 2009. Together with the rate of inflation, measured by the Consumer Price Index, the value of new
construction multiplied by the current tax rate is used to calculate the limits of the property tax cap. . . . . . After the first third of the fiscal year welfare expenditures are running 34-percent ahead of the pace set a year ago. Through October, expenses for city relief were $28,055 compared to $20,934 for the same period last year and represented two-thirds of the $41,433 spent on welfare in the 2010-2011 fiscal year. . . . . . . For the Fire Department this October was the busiest in several years with 284 calls for services, a third of them occurring simultaneously other calls. Medical emergencies represented 59-percent of the calls and fires the remaining 31-percent. Downtown accounted for 43-percent of all calls.
OCCUPY from page 2 safety conditions had become “intolerable” in the crowded plaza. The raid was conducted in the middle of the night “to reduce the risk of confrontation” and “to minimize disruption to the surrounding neighborhood,” he said. By early Tuesday evening, some protesters were being allowed back into the park two by two. But they could each take only a small bag. Still, some protesters believed the loss of Zuccotti Park may be an opportunity to broaden and decentralize the protest to give it staying power. “People are really recognizing that we need to build a movement here,” Shan said. “What we’re dedicated to is not just about occupying space. That’s a tactic.” But without a place to congregate, protesters will have a harder time communicating with each other en masse. The leaders of the movement spent most of Tuesday gathering in small groups throughout the city — in church basements and on street
tered text messages and email. Robert Harrington, owner of a small importing business in New York, stood outside the barricade with a sign calling for tighter banking regulations. “To be effective it almost has to move out of the park,” Harrington said. “It’s like the antiwar movement in the ‘60s, which started as street theater and grew into something else.” “The issues,” he added, “are larger than just this camp.” Protesters milling around Zuccotti Park said they were dismayed by the court ruling. Chris Habib, a New York artist, said he hoped the group could settle on a new protest site during a meeting later Tuesday evening. He was confident the movement would continue even if its flagship camp was dismantled. “A judge can’t erase a movement from the public mind,” he said. “The government is going to have to spend a lot of time in court to defend this.” Pete Dutro, head of the group’s finances, said the loss of the move-

Ward 1 to vote at Bean Conference Center on Jan. 10 LACONIA — The voters of Ward 1 will cast their ballots at the Beane Conference Center on Blueberry Lane when they go to the polls in New Hampshire’s First-in-the-Nation Presidential Primary on January 10. City Clerk Mary Reynolds told the City Council this week that construction at the Belknap County Complex slated to begin early next month will render the regular polling station inaccessible. She said that she considered two alternatives — the Weirs Community Center and the Beane Center — at opposite ends of the ward. The moderator, ward clerk and selectman, she explained, expressed a preference for the Beane Conference Center, which is not far from the county complex where voters are accustomed to voting as well as convenient for taking breaks for lunch, collecting children from school and going to and from work. Ward 1 City Councilor Ava Doyle, herself a resident of The Weirs, said that other things being equal she would like to have a polling station at The Weirs, but acknowledged that “a good portion of that part of the ward will be closed” and agreed with
Reynolds that the Beane Conference Center was the most suitable location. In a letter to the council, Craig Beane offered the venue without charge, explaining that the conference center is on one floor, handicapped accessible and has parking for 75 vehicles. The building was originally constructed as a house of worship for a Jehovah Witness congregation. — Michael Kitch from preceding page ment’s original encampment will open up a dialogue with other cities. “We all knew this was coming,” Dutro said. “Now it’s time for us to not be tucked away in Zuccotti Park, and have different areas of occupation throughout the city.” The aggressive raid seemed to mark a shift in the city’s dealings with the Wall Street protests. Only a week ago, Bloomberg privately told a group of executives and journalists that he thought reports of problems at the park had been exaggerated and didn’t require any immediate intervention.

Police investigating Sunday night burglary of home on Academy St. LACONIA — Police are investigating the burglary of an occupied home on Academy Street that occurred sometime Sunday night. Lt. Matt Canfield said the homeowner woke about 7:30 a.m. Monday and realized her sliding glass door had been forced opened. He said investigation officers found numerous attempts to enter the home
by someone using something with which to pry open doors and windows. He said only cash was taken and that it didn’t appear similar attempts were made in any of the surrounding houses. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Laconia Police at 524-5252 or the greater Laconia Crime Line at 524-1717. — Gail Ober

WATER from page one that that demand for water was shrinking at an annual rate of near two-percent, tracing the decline in consumption to conservation measures, including more efficient fixtures and appliances commonplace in newly constructed homes. James Belcher, a landlord with 17 apartments in the city, wrote urging the commission to reconsider the 15.38-percent increase in the rate, which he said would raise his costs by $875 a year to his costs. He said he could not pass the additional cost to his tenants for fear they would move, leaving him with vacant units. By confining the increase to the usage rate, Nuttleman said the commission sought to spare commercial customers like Belcher, since multifamily properties, hotels and the hos-
pital, are charged a quarterly base rate of $20 for each flushable fixture. Lisa Morin told the commission that she found it “counter-intuitive” that “we’re using less water, but you’re charging us more” and asked what steps were being taken to reduce costs. Nuttleman replied that fixed costs that do not vary with the volume of water produced represent a large share of the department’s operating expenses. He said that the department has successfully negotiated lower electricity charges and replaced aging pumps with more efficient “variable frequency drive pumps” requiring less power. Compensation and benefits for the 16 employees, he said, account for about a third of operating costs. “We do not feel we are over staffed,” Nuttleman said.
BLIZZARD from page one time, including up to life. Seymour said in his order that Blizzard’s act of piloting her boat at 18-20 mph “in near zero visibility and crashing into an island constitutes, at a minimum, careless and negligent operation of a boat.” Blizzard, an experienced boat pilot who operates her family’s marina, drove her 37-foot speedboat into the ledge wall of an island in Lake Winnipesaukee. She told investigators the weather was inclement and she couldn’t see the bow of her boat. The jury that convicted Blizzard in March 2010 deadlocked on two alcohol-related charges, including a more serious negligent-homicide charge. The three women had had dinner and cocktails at the Wolfetrap Restaurant in the hours before the accident, and a partially consumed bottle of vodka was found in the wreckage. Blizzard testified that she was not impaired at the time of the 6:15 a.m. crash. The women were returning to Shinopulos’ house after going to the home of Blizzard’s father on Governor’s Island to play a yearly pre-dawn Father’s Day prank of decorating his lawn with unusual items. Authorities estimate her blood-
alcohol level was 0.15 percent, nearly twice the legal limit, based on blood drawn several hours after the crash. A forensic toxicologist for the defense testified that the results were elevated because of the amount of blood Blizzard lost from her injuries. In making the argument that the suspension law is vague, Moir cited a 1986 ruling by the New Hampshire Supreme Court that said a law that allowed the DMV director to suspend a driver’s license “for any cause which he may deem appropriate” was unconstitutionally vague. Assistant Attorney General Kevin O’Neill said the statute at issue in Blizzard’s suspension is clearly distinguishable from the statute in the 1986 case. He said the law calls for suspension “for the operation of a boat improperly or so as to endanger the public.” “The length of suspension is neither punitive nor arbitrary and capricious,” O’Neill said, noting the death and serious injuries caused by Blizzard’s conduct. At the time of the accident, Blizzard was head of the New Hampshire Recreational Boaters Association and only weeks earlier had testified against imposing speed limits on Winnipesaukee, the state’s largest lake.
Local entrepreneur focuses on greeting cards with personal touches, created online By AdAm drApcho
LACONIA — Bob Haywood is a greeting card guy. He likes to send cards to people in honor of their anniversaries, birthdays, or any reason he thinks one would be appreciated. Haywood, a Lakes Region resident since 1984, has worked in many jobs throughout his life. When he was unable to find work after being laid off from a local construction company in 2008, he decided to start a company that enhances the greeting card experience. In October, Haywood registered Hard Copy Cards as his business name. He said he offers to the community a service that provides personalized cards, including the client’s own photographs and messages, in a way that is both more convenient and more affordable than the conventional competition. The trick to his trade is a website service he discovered in February of 2010 and began using for his personal use. For him, the service solved a problem. Money was tight after being unable to find work, and the service allowed him to send cards for significantly less than what it would have cost him to do it the old-fashioned way of purchasing a card from a retailer. He also found that the cards were more meaningful because he was able to include his own photos and create the greetings. “I really liked it. People I was sending the cards to were like, ‘Wow, how did you do that?’” Hard Copy Cards offers two avenues for clients to get their cards. For
those who want a full-service experience, Haywood will create and mail the cards for the clients, using their photos and messages. However, for those who have even a slight amount of Internet capability, he assures, the clients will be able to create the cards themselves. “Once you send one or two cards, it’s like sending an e-mail. It’s that easy,” Haywood said. In the time it would take to put on one’s shoes and walk to the car in order to buy a conventional card, Haywood said his clients will have already created and shipped theirs. The cards can also be used by businesspeople who want to keep in touch with their customers, he noted. Those who choose to make their cards will sign up for a membership of the website. For a monthly fee, they’ll buy points which can be used to create and ship cards. Various kinds and sizes of cards are available, from postcards up to 8 by 11 inches. The website will also store birthdays and other dates and remind the client when they’re approaching. Haywood said his company marries the best parts of e-cards, their affordability and customizability, with the charm of a conventional peice of mail. “It’s emotional, it’s physical, it’s not going to get lost in their spam filter,” he said. “Somebody says, ‘Wow, someone took the time to make me a card!’ It makes me feel good, I’m in the feelgood business,” he said. Haywood can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 998-2994.
PENN STATE from page 2 thought at the time was right ... I had to make tough impacting quick decisions.” According to the grand jury report, McQueary testified he spoke to his father and then to Paterno before speaking to athletic director Tim Curley and senior vice president Gary Schultz, who oversaw campus police. Paterno has not been charged with any crime, and state prosecutors have said he is not a target. Curley and Schultz are accused of breaking the law by not going to police but maintain their innocence. McQueary’s actions also have been scrutinized, with some critics suggesting he didn’t do enough after witnessing what he said was the sexual abuse of a child. Emails to McQueary from the AP were not immediately answered Tuesday. McQueary’s remarks in the email to his friend came less than a day after former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky’s admission that he showered with and “horsed around” with boys stunned legal observers. Sandusky’s comments, they said, could be used by prosecutors trying to convict him of child sex abuse charges. Experts in criminal law and crisis management questioned Sandusky’s decision to give a TV interview in which he said that there was no abuse and that any activities in a campus shower with a boy were just horseplay, not molestation. “Mr. Sandusky goes on worldwide television and admits he did every-
thing the prosecution claims he did, except for the ultimate act of rape or sodomy? If I were a prosecutor, I’d be stunned,” said Lynne Abraham, the former district attorney of Philadelphia. “I was stunned, and then I was revolted.” Abraham, who led a grand jury probe involving 63 accused priests from the Philadelphia archdiocese, was retained this week to lead an internal investigation of Sandusky’s charity, The Second Mile, from which he’s accused of culling his victims. Sandusky is charged with abusing eight boys over the span of 15 years. He told NBC on Monday that he is not a pedophile but should not have showered with boys. “I could say that I have done some of those things. I have horsed around with kids. I have showered after workouts. I have hugged them, and I have touched their legs without intent of sexual contact,” Sandusky said Monday on NBC News’ “Rock Center.” ‘’I am innocent of those charges.” When NBC’s Bob Costas asked him whether he was sexually attracted to underage boys, Sandusky replied: “Sexually attracted, no. I enjoy young people. I love to be around them. But, no, I’m not sexually attracted to young boys.” Sandusky apparently decided to talk to Costas by phone Monday at the last minute, with the blessing of his attorney, Joseph Amendola, who was in the studio. What was especially astonishing about Sandusky’s interview was when see next page

from preceding page he stumbled over the question about whether he was sexually attracted to children, said crisis management expert Eric Dezenhall, who runs a Washington consulting firm. “That may not be legal proof that he’s guilty, but it is certainly not helpful, to struggle with the question,” Dezenhall said. The state grand jury investigation that led to Sandusky’s arrest followed a trail that goes back at least 13 years, leading to questions from some quarters about whether law enforcement moved too slowly. The grand jury report detailed a 1998 investigation by Penn State police, begun after an 11-year-old boy’s mother complained that Sandusky had showered with her son in the football facilities. Then-District Attorney Ray Gricar declined to file charges. Another missed opportunity came in 2002, the grand jury said, when then-graduate assistant McQueary told Paterno that he had witnessed Sandusky sodomizing a child in the team’s showers. The case apparently took on new urgency two years ago, when a woman complained to officials at her local school district that Sandusky had sexually assaulted her son. School district officials banned him from school grounds and contacted police, leading to an investigation by state police, the attorney general’s office and the grand jury. Gov. Tom Corbett took the case on a referral from the Centre County district attorney in early 2009 while he was serving as attorney general. He bristled Tuesday when asked whether it was fair for people to criticize the pace of the probe. “People that are saying that are illinformed as to how investigations are conducted, how witnesses are developed, how backup information, corroborative information is developed, and they really don’t know what they’re talking about,” he told reporters. The attorney general’s office declined to comment on the pace of the investigation. The Patriot-News of Harrisburg reported Monday that only one trooper was assigned to the case after the state took it over in 2009. It wasn’t until Corbett became governor early BOEHNER from page one cans will follow him or that a deal is in sight. Republicans have been unified for two decades in opposition to higher taxes, while Democrats on the supercommittee insist on additional revenue before they will agree to cuts in benefit programs like Medicare as part of a compromise. The speaker said that the plan, outlined a week ago to Democrats on the committee, was “a fair offer.” Adding tax reform would generate economic growth, he said, speaking as the supercommittee groped uncertainly for a compromise to reduce red ink by $1.2 trillion or more over a decade. Any deal must be certified by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office as meeting the $1.2 trillion target, circulated to lawmakers and then posted publicly before the committee takes formal action. Failure to
this year that his former investigations supervisor in the attorney general’s office, Frank Noonan, became state police commissioner and put seven more investigators on it, the newspaper said. Noonan’s spokeswoman, Maria Finn, said Tuesday that manpower was increased in the case this year, but she could not confirm the numbers reported by the newspaper. “The investigation, at the time, was gaining momentum,” Finn said. “There were more leads. There were more things to do at that point. It’s not that the state police weren’t doing anything and Noonan comes in and changes things.” With the case now drawing global media attention and potential civil litigants watching from the sidelines, Sandusky went on the offensive in the NBC interview. Criminal defense lawyer Mark Geragos, who represented O.J. Simpson and other celebrity defendants, said he would “knock my client over the head with a two-by-four before I would let them do it, but it cuts both ways.” “If prosecutors use it, it can end up being testimony without cross examination,” he said. He called the Penn State case an unusual case that may call for unusual tactics, given the “instantaneous uproar to convict the guy.” Penn State’s trustees have hired the public relations firm Ketchum, which through corporate communications director Jackie Burton said only that “the details of all our client assignments are confidential.” Paterno, who authorities say fulfilled his legal responsibilities, has hired Washington lawyer Wick Sollers. Also Tuesday, lawyers for Schultz and Curley issued a statement in which they said it was “a travesty” that prosecutors sought to delay their clients’ preliminary hearing until next month. “Mr. Curley and Mr. Schultz are anxious to face their accusers, clear their good names and go on with their lives,” attorneys Caroline Roberto and Tom Farrell said. The attorney general’s office declined to comment on that. Sandusky’s next court date is Dec. 7, when he is due for a preliminary hearing in which a judge would determine if there’s enough evidence for prosecutors to move forward with the case.
matic deficit cuts in 2013 that both sides say they want to avoid. The full committee hasn’t met in several days, but various subgroups have been in near constant contact. More than deficit reduction is at stake, one year into an era of divided government. Democrats are hoping to add elements of President Barack Obama’s jobs legislation to any deficit-cutting deal, including extensions of a Social Security payroll tax cut and unemployment benefits that are due to expire at the end of the year. A comprehensive rewrite of farm programs may hang in the balance, too, and lawmakers also must pass legislation to assure sufficient funds to reimburse doctors who treat Medicare patients. As the pace of private talks intensifies, the two sides vie publicly for the high ground in public opinion.

Players file antitrust complaint against NBA NEW YORK (AP) — NBA players filed an antitrust complaint against the league in Minnesota and plan to file another complaint in California later Tuesday. The first antitrust suit vs. the NBA was filed in Minneapolis, where NFL players had some level of success in a similar court proceeding this summer. Timberwolves forward Anthony Tolliver, Pistons guard Ben Gordon, free agent forward Caron Butler and Derrick Williams, the second overall draft pick by Minnesota in June who has yet to sign a rookie contract because of the lockout, are listed as plaintiffs in the Minnesota case. NBA players’ association executive director Billy Hunter said another complaint will be filed in the Northern District of California. Those plaintiffs include Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups, Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard and Leon Powe. According to the Minnesota complaint, the classaction lawsuit has been broken up into “subclasses” because they are “so numerous and geographically
so widely dispersed that joinder of all members is impracticable.” The plaintiffs argue that the lockout “constitutes an illegal group boycott, price-fixing agreement, and/or restraint of trade in violation of the Sherman Act” and that the owners’ final offer for a new CBA would have “wiped out the competitive market for most NBA players.” David Boies, an attorney for the players, said in a press conference Tuesday afternoon the lawsuit was an attempt to restore competitive free-market conditions. “We hope it’s not necessary to go to trial,” he said. The NBA already has filed a pre-emptive lawsuit in New York seeking to prove the lockout is legal and contends that without a union that collectively bargained them, the players’ guaranteed contracts could legally be voided. During oral arguments on Nov. 2, the NBA asked U.S. District Judge Paul Gardephe to decide the legality of its lockout, but he was reluctant to wade into the league’s labor mess. Gardephe has yet to issue a ruling.

Meredith Village Savings Bank celebrates 30 years with Children’s Auction
MEREDITH — Meredith Village Savings Bank, which was the first corporate sponsor of the WLNH Children’s Auction, will mark its 30th year as a sponsor of the event, which supports children and families in need throughout the Lakes Region. This year the televised auction is scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 6 through Saturday, Dec. 10 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 6 to 10 p.m. every day and on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The bank contributed $5,000 this year in its role as the “Ed’s Corner Sponsor,” named in honor of Ed Darling, one of the Children’s Auction founders and the host of the live auction broadcast. As part of Ed’s Corner, Darling will interview several members of the bank’s leadership team on-air throughout the week. “We’re pleased to have Meredith Village Savings Bank on board as a sponsor again this year,”said Darling. “The bank’s generous support in the early years of the Children’s Auction helped us lay the foundation for the extraordinary success of this event throughout its 29-year history. MVSB’s continued support is a testament to the bank’s strong community spirit and commitment to addressing the needs of children and families in the Lakes Region.” In addition to monetary donations, the bank has

provided volunteer support to the event for many years. Each year, MVSB employees serve as phone bank operators, cashiers, runners, camera operators
and in other support roles for the auction. As in years past, MVSB will act as a drop off point throughout the Lakes Region for donated items. Due to space concerns, the office in the Hannaford in Plymouth will not be able to accept donations, but the office in downtown Plymouth will. As those familiar with the auction know, local citizens can also donate much needed items such as diapers, canned goods, toiletries, and socks on “theme days”. “We’re excited to be the Ed’s Corner sponsor for the Children’s Auction this year,” said MVSB CEO and President Sam Laverack. “Like Ed, MVSB has been a part of the auction since it began and it’s been a privilege for us to be a part of one of our region’s most successful and inspiring fundraisers. There’s nothing more rewarding than being able to make a difference in the lives of children and families in the communities we serve.” The WLNH Children’s Auction is in need of donated items, and financial and volunteer support in order to reach its goal this year. To learn how to help, visit www. childrensauction.com, contact by e-mail at email@example.com, or call 524-1323. Since 1982, the auction has raised more than $2.2 million for local organizations.

GILFORD — At the historic Weeks Cemetery on the corner of Hoyt Road and Belknap Mountain Road in Gilford, Department of Public Works employees and cemetery trustees have been working at restoration efforts since 2009. The hill-top cemetery, previously all but hidden from view by brush and overgrowth has now been revealed. Complementing the landscape improvements was the installation of a a wrought iron gate, graciously donated by local blacksmith Ray Haidaichuk. Now the cemetery trustees, lead by chairperson Susan Leach, have ordered daffodil bulbs to beautify the property. Trustees are happily accepting donations in any amount to help defray the cost of the bulbs and asking for volunteer planters to come help on Saturday November 19. The project, supported in general by the Gilford Rotary Club and the Opechee Garden Club, will see 1,000 daffodil bulbs planted along the face of the hillside,
where a narrow carriage path for hauling caskets up the steep slope may now be seen and used to walk up the hill. For corporate support and to rally volunteers, Gilford’s Belknap Landscape Company came to mind first due to the recent coordination of a volunteer tulip planting effort at Laconia’s Stewart Park. BLC enlisted the support of neighboring Appletree Nursery in Winnisquam, who supplied the daffodil bulbs at their cost. Volunteers are encouraged to participate by meeting at the cemetery Saturday at 9 a.m. Spectators are welcome and volunteers asked to meet at the Belknap Landscape tent in the parking lot overlook for coffee and instructions before the digging begins. If volunteers have a battery-powered drill and an digging auger, planting will go that much quicker. Several augers will be on hand. For more information contact Dale Squires at 455-1594 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

DAILY CROSSWORD TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES
by Paul Gilligan
by Darby Conley
By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Giving attention to the things you don’t want in your life is a sure way to make things hard for yourself. Instead, you will be a master of focus, putting your attention only on the things you want to develop. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Most people will not be able to keep up with your energy level now. They may look like they understand you, but this could be an act. Slow down, and give the other person a chance to follow you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You are as inspired by friendship as you are by loneliness. Complexities of character such as this will never cease to fascinate the people around you. You’ll attract new fans with your mysterious ways. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll field unexpected opportunities. It won’t be necessary to make a decision now. Keep thinking of your options. Tonight, you’ll apply your talents to turning an ordinary event into something remarkable. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are loved, but for some reason, you may not feel like you can safely let that love in. The ones who disappointed you in the past may have something to do with this. Challenge yourself to open up today. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 16). Your social scene will sparkle with animated and attractive characters. You’ll love the feeling of belonging that grows through 2012. December brings the chance to vault financial obstacles. You’ll gain recognition for your talent in May. In June, physical and competitive efforts lead to increased vitality and success. Cancer and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 15, 3, 24 and 1.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Wanting something (or someone) too much isn’t good for you. There’s a difference between channeling your passion well and being needy. Relax, and you’ll play the game better. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Can you drown out a feeling with a thought? You can and do on a regular basis. Today, though, it might be simpler and healthier to let the feeling happen. In a moment, it will be over, and you’ll be lighter for the experience. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll exercise your will over your moods, the environment and whatever oppressive forces are around. You’ll do this just to prove to yourself and the universe who really is in charge. CANCER (June 22-July 22). There will be a mess to clean up. And though this is a normal and expected part of life, it doesn’t make it any more pleasant. You’ll get the job done by handling one small area at a time. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You love how life always gives you the next thing to do. Today you probably won’t see the succession clearly. You’ll have to handle the first and second tasks before the second and third tasks become clear. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You do need more peace and quiet than other people right now. Just make sure that you’re not running away from a problem or isolating yourself out of fear. Solitude will be healing when it’s a destination and not an escape. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The old influences just don’t excite you like they used to. There’s no time like the present to start a new collection of jokes that make you laugh, pictures that inspire you and sounds that make you want to move your body.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, November 16, 2011— Page 25
Dear Annie: My girlfriend, “Sophie,” and I broke up three months ago after a five-year relationship because of my inability to commit. While we were together, I was brutally honest about how I felt, even though I hated how unhappy she was listening to me. Sophie and I have taken multiple short breaks in the past. I saw her last month and apologized. I told her I had made the mistake of my life by letting her go. Apparently, I needed substantial time to realize what was important to me. Unfortunately, Sophie told me she no longer sees a future for us and asked me to stop calling. She said she’d contact me when she was ready to be friends. I want to give her the time she has asked for, but I’m afraid if I wait too long, I will lose her forever. I now realize I desperately want to spend the rest of my life with her. But I have inflicted so much damage. If I ignore Sophie’s request to give her time, it might only make matters worse. I would do anything to get her back. Should I go after her or wait for her to come to me? -- M in Hawaii Dear M: Are you going to propose? If so, go after her. If not, leave her alone. Your feelings are no longer trustworthy to Sophie. Unless you are ready for a lifetime commitment, ring in hand, do the girl a favor and let her find someone she knows won’t walk out when he feels overwhelmed. She deserves certainty and stability. Dear Annie: Recently, two of my cousins were in town. They come here frequently to visit their husbands’ families. I’m the only cousin who still lives in our hometown, but they have never once called to say hello or plan a get-together. All I want is a “Hi, how are you?” It only takes a few minutes to make a telephone call, and if I’m not at home, my an-
swering machine will get the message. I am family, too, and whenever I am in their area on business or vacation, I always make the time to visit. I also call frequently. Is it too much to ask that they do the same? Would plans for a family reunion be out of the question? -- In Need of Family Contact Dear Contact: Of course your cousins should call, but they may not realize how much you would appreciate it, even if they can’t arrange to see you. So tell them. Say you’d love it if they picked up the phone when they are in your area, just to say hello. And while you’re at it, ask if they’d be interested in a family reunion. We think they will. Dear Annie: I sympathize with “Maine Husband,” who is the caregiver for his wife with multiple sclerosis. I’m sure his wife is extremely grateful to have him in her life. My husband has had to take over more and more of the household chores because of my disabilities, and I am so honored to have him. He makes my life a joy. When we are invited out and I don’t feel well enough to go, I make sure I have everything I’ll need for the few hours my husband will be gone. Then he can go and relax. I can always call him if I have a problem, but he feels better for getting out of the house, and I feel better knowing I am not taking up all of his time. “Maine” has to speak up for himself. Maybe if he asked the relatives to watch his wife for a few hours, they would understand his position. If they sat in a wheelchair all day, they might see how hard it is to rely on someone else to do all the simple things they take for granted. There is a special place in heaven for people like my husband. -- C.
