Fish & Game buys boat ramp on Alton Bay

$1M purchase of Downing’s Landing will provide state’s first real public access to largest lake BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

ALTON — The New Hampshire Fish & Game Department this week purchased Downing’s Landing at the tip of Alton Bay, which will become the department’s first and only real public boat launch on Lake Winnipesaukee. “We’ve worked long and hard to find a

spot,” said Glenn Normandeau, executive director of the department. He described Harilla Landing on Long Island in Moultonborough, the only other state-owned launch on the lake, as a “nightmare.” Normandeau said the department paid $1-million for the property owned by the Downing Brothers, Inc. The site consists of two lots — one of 0.52-acres and

another of 0.31 acres — abutting the town beach at the junction of N.H. Routes 11 and 28-A. The property consists mostly of a paved parking lot, but includes two small buildings, the largest a 1,614-square-foot office building. The property has a current assessed value of $700,400. The acquisition was financed by see BOAT RAMP page 11

Massive pileup shuts I-10 in Texas; 2 are dead

BEAUMONT, Texas (AP) — Two people died and dozens were hurt Thursday when at least 100 vehicles collided in Southeast Texas in a pileup that left trucks twisted on top of each other and authorities rushing to pull survivors from the wreckage. The collision occurred in extremely foggy conditions at about 8 a.m. Thanksgiving Day on Interstate 10 southwest of Beaumont, a Gulf Coast city about 80 miles east of Houston. A man and a woman were killed in a Chevy Suburban SUV crushed by a tractor trailer, the Texas Department of Public Safety told KFDM-TV. Officials at Acadian Ambulance service said at least 51 people have been taken to area hospitals and at least eight are critically hurt. It wasn’t immediately clear how the pileup began, but Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Rod Carroll told The Associated Press the fog was so thick that deputies didn’t immediately realize they were dealing with multiple accidents. “It is catastrophic,” Carroll said. “I’ve got see TEXAS page 14

Hamas cries victory over Israel; truce holding GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Hamas leaders and thousands of flag-waving supporters declared victory over Israel on Gaza’s first day of calm under an Egyptianbrokered truce Thursday, as Israeli officials flew to Cairo for talks on easing a blockade on the battered Palestinian territory. Eight days of punishing Israeli airstrikes on Gaza and a barrage of Hamas rocket fire on Israel ended inconclusively. While Israel said it inflicted heavy damage on the militants, Gaza’s Hamas rulers claimed that Israel’s decision not to send in ground troops, as it had four years ago, was a sign of a new deterrent power.

“Resistance fighters changed the rules of the game with the occupation (Israel), upset its calculations,” Gaza Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas, who attended the rally, said later in a televised speech. “The option of invading Gaza after this victory is gone and will never return.” At the same time, Haniyeh urged Gaza fighters to respect the truce and to “guard this deal as long as Israel respects it.” The mood in Israel was mixed. Some were grateful that quiet had been restored without a ground operation that could have cost the lives of more soldiers. Others — particularly those in southern Israel hit by

rockets over the past 13 years — thought the operation was abandoned too quickly. Thousands of Israeli soldiers who had been sent to the border during the fighting withdrew Thursday, the military said. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the offensive’s aims of halting Gaza rocket fire and weakening Hamas were achieved. “I know there are citizens who were expecting a harsher response,” he said, adding that Israel is prepared to act if the cease-fire is violated. In a development that could complicate cooperation on the cease-fire, Israel see HAMAS page 11

CAIRO (AP) — The top leader of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood denounced peace efforts with Israel and urged holy war to liberate Palestinian territories on Thursday — one day after the country’s president, who hails from the movement, mediated a cease-fire between Israelis and Palestinians to end eight days of fierce fighting. “The enemy knows nothing but the language of force,” said Mohammed Badie. “Be aware of the game of grand deception with which they depict peace accords,” he said in a statement carried on the group’s website and emailed to reporters. His statement was a sharp deviation from the role played by President Mohammed Morsi in the last week. Egypt’s role in brokering the deal has been hailed by U.S. officials. The Brotherhood sometimes delivers

conflicting messages, depending on its audience. There are also ideological and generational divisions within the movement, with older leaders like Badie often seen as more conservative. The Muslim Brotherhood doesn’t recognize Israel and — at least officially — its members refuse to hold direct talks with Israeli officials. But Morsi has said that he will abide by the terms of Egypt’s 1979 treaty with Israel, and many members say they are in little hurry to enter into armed conflict with the Jewish state. Badie declared that “jihad is obligatory” for Muslims. But he also said that taking up arms would be the “last stage,” only after Muslims achieved unity. “The use of force and arms while the group is fragmented see BROTHERHOOD page 8

Brotherhood leader blasts peace with Israel

Egypt’s Morsi grants himself great power

CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s Islamist president unilaterally decreed greater authorities for himself Thursday and effectively neutralized a judiciary system that had emerged as a key opponent by declaring that the courts are barred from challenging his decisions. Riding high on U.S. and international praise for mediating a Gaza cease-fire, Mohammed Morsi put himself above oversight and gave protection to the Islamist-led assembly writing a new constitution from a looming threat of dissolution by court order. see EGYPT page 6

Bosses gone wild The sky is falling! The end times are upon us! It’s all over for America! And it’s all because of you execrable voters. This is the wretched wail of a few corporate chieftains who claim to be somewhere between flummoxed and furious that Barack Obama is back in the White House. With his diabolical ObamaCare and tax-therich attacks on us wealthy job creators, they moan, this president is out to destroy American business. “There’s a tsunami coming,” cried one, so we must save ourselves. How do these trembling titans of free enterprise intend to do that? By firing employees, thus sending a message to workers that voting for Democrats is bad for their health. “Elections have consequences,” exclaimed a Las Vegas boss, after offing 22 workers the day after Obama was re-elected. Echoing this self-serving political ethic, a Georgia owner of an aviation outfit told C-SPAN that his fear of ObamaCare made him fire enough workers to exempt his business from providing health care. “I tried to make sure that the people I had to lay off voted for Obama,” he noted, spewing spite. Then there’s Papa John’s, the billion-dollar-a-year fast-food chain. John Schnatter, the present “papa” of Papa John’s, had warned this summer that he’d jack up the consumer price of the chain’s pizza if Obama won, because he wasn’t going to eat the cost of assuring health coverage for employees. Post-election, however, Schnatter has decided not to slap his customers, but to slap Papa John’s workers, instead, by cutting their hours to part-time so he doesn’t have to pay for their coverage. “That’s what you do,” Schnatter snapped. “You pass on costs.” Yeah, and what an exemplary way for the millionaire boss to boost productivity and loyalty (not to mention morale of those who do the actual work that make customers want to buy Papa John’s pizza — or not). Despite all of Schnatter’s qualifications to take top prize in the “Political Boss Man of the Year” contest, he really didn’t come close to our winner. Numero Uno for 2012, hands down, is Robert Murray, multimillionaire chief backer of the coal giant Murray Energy. A die-hard right-winger and

Romney backer, this one-percenter required coal miners in his company to be stage props for Romney at an August rally he sponsored, and he also pressured his salaried employees to donate money to the Republican’s run for the White House. Alas, though, Murray’s man lost, and the coal baron is not taking it at all well. In fact, he’s taking it out on some of those very employees he coerced into Mitt’s campaign — and he says it’s all your fault, you Great Unwashed who voted for the radical socialist Democrat. First, the workers. Only hours after the election, Murray announced the firing of more than 160 of them at his various subsidiaries around the country, blaming disastrous policies that he claims Obama will now enact in order to bring about the “total destruction of the coal industry by 2030.” Peering into his politically warped crystal ball, the corporate soothsayer said he will be “forced” to fire more employees in coming months. Why? Bob explained it all in — believe it or not — a post-election prayer that he delivered to staffers at corporate headquarters. “Dear Lord,” he lamented, “the takers outvoted the producers.” (Guess which group he puts himself in. But I digress.) “The American people have made their choice ... away from capitalism,” he mourned. “We are a country in favor of redistribution, national weakness and reduced standard of living.” Thus, pleaded the sanctimonious boss, “Lord, please forgive me ... for the decisions that we are now forced to make.” So, see, it wasn’t Bob who fired those people. It was YOU, you Obama supporters — or, and Murray sneeringly calls you, the “receivers” of government giveaways who elected that communistical destroyer of enterprise. Dear Lord, indeed! Please save us from the pathetic pieties of such messianic political bosses. (Jim Hightower has been called American’s most popular populist. The radio commentator and former Texas Commissioner of Agriculture is author of seven books, including “There’s Nothing In the Middle of Road but Yellow Stripes and Dead Armadillos” and his new work, “Swim Against the Current: Even Dead Fish Can Go With The Flow”.)

People reporting crime tips shouldn’t shield their identify To the editor, On November 17 you printed a report about people calling the police with “tips” of crimes. Callers are promised anonymity. It is a known strategy of organized crime to start rumors and slander innocent people to incriminate them. By assuring callers that their reports will remain anonymous, this

system encourages deceit. Behind the shield of unaccountability, the caller is free to blame anyone for anything, true or false — and all the police then have to go by is hearsay. No one checks this source. People reporting crime tips should be required to report their identity. Susan G. Hayes Laconia

LETTERS Who’ll pay all the interest on the trillions Obama is borrowing? To the editor, Reading the letters here on Wednesday, one that caught my attention was captioned, “Obama offers plan for economic security for 100 percent of Americans. How I ask? I still see no evidence he has any intention or plan to lower the national debt. On the contrary he seems to me to just want to continue his big borrowing/spending socialist agenda. Last I read unemployment is still closer to 8 percent then to the promised 5.4 percent with nothing to show his government stimulus plan has any hope of working now any better then his first attempt in his first term. Instead, all indications from business and manufacturing look to be reducing workers hours to part-time or looking for bankruptcies relief. Expect to see a jump in employment next quarter due

to temp jobs during Christmas but we can’t count on them being sustained, so again I ask where will the economic security come from? We are fast becoming a Western European type economy so I wonder what they are going to do once we in this country can no longer subsidize their economies as we have since 1945? For that matter, I wonder what the plan is for when we can no longer pay even the interest on all the trillions Obama has borrowed and spent and the trillions more he intends on spending in his second term? You know last week that great mind, Jimmy V, wrote a list of all of us who were fooled by the results of the election. Well time will tell who was fooled, Jimmy. Steve Earle Hill

Donations go to pay for hospital care for unowned animals To the editor, I want to thank all the people who have donated money to the box my daughter and I set up at the Laconia Pet Center. My daughter Sarah found a kitty on Rte. 3 that had been hit by a car and left to die. Thanks to the compassionate staff at the VCA Lakes Region Veterinary Hospital at 1266 Union Ave., the kitty is now doing well. She does continue to need medical care and money is needed to pay for her treatment — the bill is over $800 already — and for the treatment of other

unowned animals that come into the hospital from time to time. The Ginger Sandy Fund at the Veterinary Hospital was established for this purpose and all money collected in the donation box at Laconia Pet Center (1343 Union Ave.) will be donated to it. This fund needs continual help from the kind people of the Lakes Region. We are especially grateful to Brett and the staff and customers at Laconia Pet Center. Thank you all. Michelle McCarthy Laconia

People care about Benghazi but a lot more about jobs & gas To the editor, Romney can make all the excuses he wants but he lost the election because of his big mouth. What he said about the 47 percent was a terrible thing to say. Did he really expect them to vote for him? And the bets he was making throwing around his money were an insult, too. Rich people think they can buy people but he couldn’t buy the White House could he? He is a sore loser and now he wants to give our president a hard time — like John McCain

is also doing. He is another sore loser — so concerned about something that already happened. The American people feel bad about Benghazi but they are more concerned about things that are happening here in America — like jobs, gas prices and people without power and food. Think about that, John McCain and Kelly Ayotte, and leave the president alone. If you want his job, run for it. Diana Field Franklin


THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, November 23, 2012 — Page 5

LETTERS Want results? We must take schools back from teachers’ unions To the editor, Frank Weeks commented on my article on education. He dances on some FANTASY that the teaching contingent of America is some highly trained, exceptionally competent group gushing with Masters degrees and PhD’s the rest of the public lacks. If his view held an ounce of truth maybe he can explain the broad spectrum of totally failed macro education statistics reported year after year, with 2012 being no exception. Global spending on education is about $3.9 trillion annually. America owns $1.3 trillion of that, far out spending any other country. Of the 34 OECD countries (Organization for Economic Development), Americas test scores rank us 25th out out of 34 in math, 17th out of 34 science and 14th out of 34 in reading. The 2012 SAT college entrance test scores reveal the lowest reading test scores in 40 years. The SAT scores also indicate 43 percent of the kids tested are likely NOT TO DO WELL IN COLLEGE. The PISA results (Program for International Student Assessment) puts the U.S. in about the middle of the 70 countries it tests, again with the U.S. spending the most per student. American TAXPAYERS nationwide are getting SCREWED BLUE between what they are paying for in macro education and what education outputs for results. It is certain the largest single theft of wealth in America. It is theft by DECEPTION. Paying education to produce Cadillac’s while they turnout VW Beetles is robbery by no other name. Stagnation and decline in education test results is not some NEW headline. Americas slow academic decline has been occurring for decades. Always tied to the same TEACHERS UNION PROMISE... more teachers, paid higher wages and better benefits will solve the problem. The HEART and ORIGIN of educations failure is rooted in POLITICS. Democrats OWN TEACHERS’ UNIONS and teachers unions’ own the Democratic Party creating a CRONY, bedfellow relationship. POOR, failed academic results means UNIONS can

SCREAM FOR MORE TEACHERS. Such demands were deafening during the election. Seven of 10 of the highest highest money contributed to Obama superpacs came from TEACHERS’ UNIONS. THEY HELPED OBAMA BUY THE PRESIDENCY unlike any other group. It is political INCEST paid for by YOU. The non stop unemployment lines and record 42 million people now on food stamps confirms educations failure. The REFUSAL of education to do its job produces ever longer bread lines and soup kitchens. More evidence? Fifty percent of this country is now dependent on some form of government monthly entitlement. We have added more than a MILLION teachers to classrooms, lowered teacher/pupil ratios steadily, raised teacher salaries and benefits unendingly. Nothing has stopped the academic decline. Education’s failure harms us economically, exacerbates social divisions, and endangers our democratic society, leaving too many citizens without the requisite knowledge to participate effectively. It means other countries will take the BEST and highest paid employment that requires the very highest skills. The global economy prizes most exceptional aptitude in math science and technology. The failure of education makes the U.S. less competitive in world markets and constitutes a genuine threat to our national strength and security. It is estimated if America could raise its math performance to even that of Canada it would add one trillion dollars to our economy. If you want macro public school performance to improve, parents have only ONE recourse. Take schools back from teachers’ unions that control them with IRON FISTS and IRON WILLS and carry union hand books to assure they always will. There is NO UNION mission statement aimed to improve ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE or improve efficiency to ever control costs. It is a sure recipe for failure and that is what we get. Tony Boutin Gilford

Thankful wonderful things have been done to make diagnosis better To the editor, As I sit here on Thanksgiving Day, with the sun shining through the bedroom window, my thoughts go to what I am thankful for. First of all that I am here. After being diagnosed with breast cancer, I am thinking of the wonderful things people have done to make this diagnosis better. After my operation, I received a wonderful soft black teddy bear wearing a pink bracelet and a camisole from an organization in Center Sandwich. My second gift was during radiation. Someone made beautiful cloth dolls that you were welcome to take home. So, I took one. These little gifts meant so much to me. I want to thank my husband for his patience and “doctoring”. He is an amazing guy. I want to thank everyone at LRGHealthcare Oncology. They

are just wonderful. I also want to thank my wonderful friends who were there when I needed them. It has been three years since my operation. All you ladies out there, be thankful that you have hair and boobs! I could feel sorry for myself but I have to remember that there is always someone worse off than me. For all you ladies that have been diagnosed with breast cancer, God Bless You. I have to add this little tid bit to my letter. All these organizations that are having fairs. They are Christmas Fairs not Holiday Fairs. If it weren’t for the Christmas season, you would not be having fairs. Get with the program. I am thankful that I can say that! Barbara J.

Man accused of threatening police says he has been denied right to speedy trial By Gail OBer

LACONIA — The former Gilford man who is accused of threatening to shoot a city police detective and the city prosecutor has asked his case be dismissed because the state violated his right to a speedy a trial. Attorney John Bresau filed his motion claiming that if the state didn’t drop the five misdemeanor charges against Bernard O. Huard, 54, then he should at least be freed from jail while he awaits his trial. On August 7, Huard allegedly called his physician’s office in Gilford to get some medication. In the course of his conversation with one of the doctor’s assistants, he is said to have threatened to get an AK-47 assault rifle and shoot two Laconia law enforcement officials. The assistant called the Gilford Police who notified the Laconia Police and together the two departments located Huard on Liscomb Circle. Police affidavits said he had a number of AK-47 bullets on him and was about to get a gun from the Liscomb Circle address where he was located. He was charged with three counts of criminal threatening, one count of resisting arrest and one count of disorderly conduct. Since the day of his arrest, he has been awaiting trial in the Belknap County House of Corrections with a cash-only bail amount of $50,000. Indicted in late August, Huard had been scheduled to stand trial on November 19. On November 7, Bresau was notified by the court that Huard’s case was being rescheduled to January 7, 2013 because of “limitations in the November docket and the court’s schedule.” Bresau argues that the N.H. Constitution and the Sixth Amendment

of the U.S. Constitution guarantees every criminal defendant the right to a speedy trial. In New Hampshire, Bresau said the Supreme Court adopted a four-pronged approach to speedy trials that balances the length of the delay, the prejudice cause to the defendant for the delay, the reasons for the delay, and whether or not the defendant waived his or her rights to a speedy trial. In Huard’s case, Bresau cited case law “where a defendant charged with a misdemeanor is not in jail, we do not consider a pretrial delay of fewer than six months to be presumptively prejudicial.” Breasau said that by the time Huard gets tried he will have been in jail for at least five months and has lost his liberty. He asked that if the court doesn’t dismiss the charges, it should allow Huard to be free while he awaits trial. Belkap County Attorney Melissa Guldbrandsen replied that the length of the delay “is the triggering mechanism.” Since the date of his arrest, he has been in jail less than four months and the date of the new trail is exactly five months from his arrest she argued. “In this case, the length of the delay — five months from arrest and approximately 4 1/2 months from indictment — while greater than policy, is extremely insignificant,” she wrote. She said the reason for the delay — “the practical administration of justice” — is reasonable and should not be a factor against the prosecution. As to whether his bail should be reduced or eliminated, she said the court has already held a bail hearing and there is no reason to change the existing bail order. No date has been scheduled for the motion hearing.

EGYPT from page 2 But the move is likely to fuel growing public anger that he and his Muslim Brotherhood are seizing too much power. In what was interpreted by rights activists as a de facto declaration of emergency law, one of Morsi’s decrees gave him the power to take “due measures and steps” to deal with any “threat” to the revolution, national unity and safety or anything that obstructs the work of state institutions. Morsi framed his decisions as necessary to protect the revolution that toppled Hosni Mubarak nearly two years ago and to cement the nation’s transition to democratic rule. Many activists, including opponents of the Brotherhood, criticize the judiciary as packed with judges and prosecutors sympathetic to Mubarak. Brotherhood supporters accuse the courts of trying to block their agenda. “He had to act to save the country and protect the course of the revolution,” said one of Morsi’s aides, Pakinam al-Sharqawi, speaking on Al-Jazeera. “It is a major stage in the process of completing the January 25th revolution,” she said, alluding to the starting day of last year’s uprising against Mubarak. In a nod to revolutionary sentiment, Morsi also ordered the retrial of

Mubarak and top aides on charges of killing protesters during the uprising. He also created a new “protection of the revolution” judicial body to swiftly carry out the prosecutions. But he did not order retrials for lower-level police acquitted of such killings, another widespread popular demand that would disillusion the security forces if carried out. Liberal politicians immediately criticized the decrees as dictatorial and destined to divide a nation already reeling from months of turmoil following Mubarak’s ouster. Some said they exceeded the powers once enjoyed by Mubarak. “Morsi today usurped all state powers & appointed himself Egypt’s new pharaoh,” pro-reform leader Mohamed ElBaradei wrote on Twitter. “A major blow to the revolution that could have dire consequences.” ElBaradei later addressed a news conference flanked by other prominent politicians from outside the Brotherhood, including two presidential candidates who ran against Morsi, Amr Moussa and Hamdeen Sabahi. They pledged to cooperate to force Morsi to rescind his assumption of greater powers. “We will work together as Egyptians until we achieve the goals of our revolution,” said ElBaradei, a former director of the U.N.’s nuclear agency and Nobel peace laureate.

380 Loudon residents take advantage of opportunity to take Master Plan survey By Kathleen Ronayne CONCORD MONITOR

LOUDON — The results of Loudon’s once-adecade master plan community survey are in, with input from the community on issues related to development, conservation, transportation and general opinions on life in Loudon. A total of 380 people responded to the survey, which was sent in October. Once every 10 years, the town updates its master plan, which guides development and growth. Now that the results are in, the next step is for the planning board to evaluate them with the Central New Hampshire Regional Planning Commission at a meeting on Dec. 20. This is just the beginning of what is likely to be a lengthy process. “It’s just an ongoing process,” said Donna White, administrative assistant to the planning board. Of the survey respondents, 45 percent said they have lived in Loudon for more than 20 years. The survey was available online, and residents were mailed postcards to alert them about it. A copy of the survey was also available in the Loudon Ledger, the town’s monthly newsletter. The survey had 56 questions, ranging from yes or no questions to multiplechoice and long-answer questions. The board used the last master plan, conducted in 2001, as a template for this survey, White said. Three frequent topics are the Route 106 corridor, conservation of the Soucook River and the New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Many questions relate to improving overall quality of life in Loudon and development. The board “took the same questions from (the old survey) that hadn’t been addressed, tweaked them to meet today’s questions, and then added a few others because of issues that have come up over the years,” White said. Each member of the planning board has a section of the master plan he is in charge of, such as transportation or housing, and will evaluate the ques-

tions related to that section. Although the survey included several questions about the Route 106 corridor, the state Department of Transportation has jurisdiction over that road. But gauging the community’s response is still an important part of making changes to it. One question asked whether residents supported expanding the commercial and industrial zoning area around Route 106. It extends about 500 feet back from the road in most places. If expanded, businesses could build farther back from the road. Forty-one percent of respondents said they were in favor, while 42 percent said they were against it, and 17 percent had no response. The survey also asked whether traffic control could be improved at certain intersections by adding traffic lights, and the majority of respondents said yes. On the Soucook River, 53 percent said they support development and improvement of access to the river, and 73 percent said they support restoration of the Mill Pond near the river. Sixty-eight percent of respondents said they support a greenway along

the river, which is a linear open space designed to accommodate wildlife and low-impact recreational use, according to the survey. Other questions related to improving the town’s quality of life and increasing development. One question asked why residents think Loudon is a desirable place to live, and respondents could select more than one answer. Topping the list was the town’s small-town/rural atmosphere, which 90 percent of respondents said made Loudon a good place to live, followed by 83 percent selecting the town’s proximity to cities. The two lowest ranking factors were employment and the education system, which only 5 and 9 percent of respondents, respectively, felt make the town a desirable place to live. A majority of people, 76 percent, were in favor of the town encouraging more commercial and industrial growth to broaden the tax base. A large shopping mall received a high disapproval rating, with 75 percent saying they disliked the idea. Heavy industrial parks also got a 68 percent disapproval rating. see next page

Lights & Sat. night racing supported by majority By Kathleen Ronayne CONCORD MONITOR

LOUDON — The majority of residents who responded to a recent town survey support installing lights and holding Saturday night racing at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Three-hundred-eighty people responded to the Loudon Master Plan Survey, which included four specific questions about the speedway. The rest of the questions related to general development, and the responses will be used to update the town’s master plan, which happens once a decade. The speedway-related questions asked residents if they would support installing lights, hosting night racing and allowing a casino on the speedway prop-

erty if the state decides to legalize expanded gambling. The survey also included a question about traffic flow on race days. “I’m just encouraged because it looks like the respondents have responded with a willingness to have an open mind and further dialogue, which is all you can ask,” said Jerry Gappens, the speedway’s general manager. Ninety-two percent of respondents, or 343 people, were Loudon residents. Members of the town’s planning board received the results of the survey Nov. 15. A total of 58.6 percent of respondents, or 201 people, said yes to installing lights to extend the NASCAR event day in case of rain, while 34.1 percent, or 117 people, said no.

Center Harbor tax rate increases $2.01 CENTER HARBOR — The New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration has set thew 2012 property tax rate at $12.97, an increase of $2.01. The total amount to be raised by property taxes decreased by $232,753, from $5,146,086 to $4,913,333. The

assessed valuation decreased by $91,594,137, from $473,647,681 to $382,053,544, a drop of 19-percent. The town portion of the tax rate rose by 92 cents to $4.81, the local school tax by 43 cents to $4.07, the state education tax 37 cents to $2.60 and the county tax 29 cents to $1.49.

2 tons of pigeon droppings found in Swedish church tower STOCKHOLM (AP) — A hatch on a Swedish church tower inadvertently left open for some three decades resulted in 2 tons of pigeon droppings amassing in the tower. The church’s property manager says the layer of droppings was 30 centimeters (12 inches) deep when it was discovered during a May inspection of the Heliga Trefaldighets Kyrka in Gavle, 170 kilometers (105 miles)

north of Stockholm. Lennart Helzenius said on Thursday that church staff had been shocked by the sheer number of bags of excrement cleaners were removing from the tower. He says the droppings filled 80 bags in the first round of cleaning, and then just as many in the second round. Helzenius says the hatch had probably been left open since the 1980s.

BROTHERHOOD from page 2 and disconnected, unorganized, weak in conviction, with faint faith — this will be destined for death.” In the meantime, he called on Muslims to “back your brothers in Palestine. Supply them with what they need, seek victory for them in all international arenas.” Badie’s title — General Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood — also implies a leadership role in the Islamist group’s sister movements across the world.

Under the deal, Gaza’s ruling Hamas is to stop rocket fire into Israel while Israel is to cease attacks and allow the opening of the strip’s longblockaded borders. The Hamas-Israel fighting was the first major international test for Morsi, who was caught between either supporting Hamas, one of the Egyptian Brotherhood’s sister movements, and Cairo’s regional and international commitments.

from preceding page About 33 percent of respondents said Loudon was growing as fast as neighboring towns, 15 percent said it was growing too fast and 9 percent said not fast enough. But almost 32 percent of respondents said they do not think growth is a major issue in Loudon. The board did not set a goal for how many people it hoped would respond to the survey, but White said she

thinks the 380 responses are fewer than the 2001 survey received. The survey was conducted mainly online, and there was no barrier to keep nonresidents from responding. The population of Loudon is about 5,300, according to the 2010 Census, which means less than 10 percent of the population responded to the survey. Members of the planning board could not be reached for comment.

Deepawali festival connects Bhutanese refugees here to traditional way of life BY ADAM DRAPCHO THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Last week, local Bhutanese refugees joined billions of other Hindus around the world in the celebration of Deepawali, a festival also referred to as Diwali. The multi-day event, sometimes called the “festival of light”, is celebrated at one of the darkest times of the year and recalls the story of Lord Rama, a legendary king who was exiled for 14 years and returned to his kingdom after defeating a demon. To mark his return, the legend says, villagers lighted oil lamps. Thus, the celebration is considered a victory of light over darkness, of good over evil. For their different religion, culture, and ethnic history, the Nepalese-speaking Bhutanese, though they had lived in Bhutan for centuries, became the object of persecution by the government of the mostly Buddhist kingdom. By 1990, the government began forcing the Nepalese-speaking Bhutanese to flee across the border, into refugee camps in Nepal. Their time in exile was even longer than Lord Rama’s, living for nearly two decades in the camps before resettlement programs were made available to them, transporting them to new homes around the world. Locally, some of those new homes included Laconia, Manchester and Concord. Bal “Bikash” Bhattarai, now 25, has only one memory of his life in Bhutan. For 17 years – most of his life – he lived in a refugee camp in Nepal. He came to the United States in 2008 with the ability to speak English and an degree in physical science he earned thanks to a scholarship to a nearby institute in India. Even so, he said, his first year in Laconia was not easy. “I had to struggle a lot,” he said. “It’s like a newlyborn baby in a new place.” Unsure of what to do with himself at first, he decided to approach passers-by and engage them in conversation. Even that proved to be puzzling to the newly-transplanted Bhattarai. He would begin with the conventional greeting of “hello,” and was confounded by the response, “What’s up?” “I never knew ‘what’s up,’” Bhattarai said. Instead of recognizing it as an informal greeting, he took the question literally. “I was confused, looking up, I didn’t see anything.” He can laugh, now, at some of the naive mistakes he made adjusting to the new life. Everything was challenging, even simple tasks such as identifying foods available at the supermarket. Getting a steady job was even more challenging,

especially without any references in this hemisphere. So, Bhattarai worked a series of temporary jobs — snow removal, construction labor, housekeeping, and working the night desk at a local hospitality agency. His determination paid off, though, as he’s been employed since 2009 as a nursing assistant at the Taylor Community and with Lakes Region Community Services. Like Bhattarai, those Bhutanese refugees who have found stability have done so through struggle — and he feared the effort of living in the United States could imperil some of his culture’s customs. For the past few years, in fact, the celebrations of Deepawali have been overlooked as too impractical for their new environment. The loss of culture would be ironic. They were expelled from Bhutan for having a culture and history distinct from the ruling majority, and managed

to protect their customs despite many years in refugee camps. Now they live in a society where cultural and religious freedoms are guaranteed by law, yet the economic pressures of that society have placed their traditions in peril. In the camps, and in villages in Bhutan, the Deepawali celebrations included groups of men who would travel from door to door, entertaining and blessing households with rhythmic traditional calland-response songs and enthusiastic dances, for which the performers were rewarded by gifts of food or money. In New Hampshire, such a celebration hasn’t proven possible. So, the culture has been adapted to the new circumstances. One such problem is that the community is too disparate to go door-to-door. Instead, the local Bhutanese traveled to central see next page

LHS seniors will be required produce to project that’ll involve significant amount of evidence-based research BY ROGER AMSDEN FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — High School students will be doing more evidence-based research in future years and will be required to complete a senior project which involves a significant amount of research. ‘’This will include such elements as writing for the argument, providing the evidence and using critical thinking skills to separate fact from opinion,’’ Steve Tucker, academic coordinator for teaching and learning at Laconia High School, told Laconia School Board members at Tuesday night’s meeting. His comments came during a discussion of what new Laconia High School Principal Jim McCollum sees as the major challenge he faces at the school. McCollum, in response to a question from School Board Chairman Joe Cormier, said that making academic excellence a clear goal by raising the bar for all students is his top priority and that it will take a significant amount of work over the next five years to achieve the kind of results he wants to see. In response to another question from Cormier, he said that the thing which most surprised him in the transition from Middle School principal to High School principal was the willingness of students to adapt to the changes he was bringing to the school. An advocate of the Teach Like a Champion program, which employs strategies designed to prevent distractions to learning and requires a higher degree of involvement in the classroom, McCollum said the program at the high school already has 15 teachers involved who are taking on two chapters at a time of the book and are implementing its recommendations. He said that the program meshes nicely with the existing LHS Pride program in which respect is the focus and that bringing the staff together so that there is a consistency of practice is a key to achieving results. Board member Scott Vachon asked of there are an adequate number of guidance counselors at the high school, given the kind of student resume-based programs which are being instituted in which skills from preceding page locations in each city — Laconia, Manchester and Concord — where the celebrations occurred. Dancing was restrained due to the smaller confines, but the songs were given full voice and were metered by a traditional drum. Another adaption to the new world, Bhattarai accompanied the music with an acoustic guitar. It took a concerted effort for the local Hindu Bhutanese to celebrate Deepawali this year, but Bhattarai said the continuation of the tradition is worth

and competencies are stressed. McCollum praised the energy and effectiveness of the four people in the guidance department and said that the new programs ‘’clarifies the structure of what they do’’ rather than add to their workload, McCollum reported to the board on his first quarter at the high school (he replaced Stephen Beals in June) and he noted that 41 percent of all high school students received academic honors in the first quarter. He also said that the school has 150 students taking part in the New Hampshire Scholars Program, which is an effort by area business and school volunteers to encourage and motivate all high school students to complete a defined, rigorous academic course of study that prepares them for successful transition to college or university coursework or vocational and technical training. McCollum also said that both the varsity cheer squad and the girls soccer team won state sportsmanship awards, which is very significant because see next page the trouble, especially for the new generation of his community, those born so recently that they have no memories of the camps, let alone Bhutan and what their ancestors went through because of and to protect their culture. It was for the youngest among them, he said, that the Bhutanese will find a way to carry on the tradition. “If we didn’t, they might forget everything else. Make them know, this is what we do in Deepawali... It is very, very important, to teach the new generations, to know how our forefathers celebrated the tradition.”


THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, November 23, 2012 — Page 11

from preceding page the awards are based on evaluations from the coaches of opposing teams. He said that all of the other fall sports teams also achieved high marks and that from his standpoint he was ‘’most excited about how our

players represented the community.’’ The board also took time to recognize Samantha “Sami” Hicks, a senior who was the first place finisher in the NHIAA Division III Cross-Country Championship

GUILTY from page one suspended if he completes a series of rehabilitation programs. He was also sentenced to an additional nine to 18 years — to be served consecutively, or after the 10 to 20 — but it was all suspended pending good behavior for 10 years. Mullarkey was credited with 455 days of pre-trial confinement. He and Joshua Shepard, 33, committed what police in Laconia, Belmont, Gilford, and Sanbornton say were 51 burglaries throughout the summer of 2010. The two burglarized a number of homes when the occupants were inside and sleeping. The one victim woke to find one of the two in her Emerald Street bedroom. He ran when she screamed and turned on the light. When asked by Judge James O’Neill III why he should accept Mullarkey’s plea — two previous plea deals had been rejected — atty. John Clothier said Mullarkey has been disabled and medicated for his entire life. He said Mullarkey stopped taking his medication and “lost control of his thought process.” “Mr. Mullarkey realizes this was a terrible event and that he caused great concern in the community,” Clothier said. He added Mullarkey cooperated with police, took them to the places he remembered burglar-

izing, and assisted them in closing many open burglaries. He has also written letters of apology to his victims and Guldbrandsen said the police and the victims are “on board” with the sentencing recommendation. “You and your associate held this community hostage for a summer and I’m being asked to incarcerate you for 20 years for 12 felonies,” said O’Neill, noting that each felony could carry a separate penalty of 7 1/2 to 15 years. Mullarkey said he only hoped “he would be given a chance to change” and that he knew it was “extremely wrong” to do what he did to his victims. After pondering for a bit, O’Neill asked the two victims in court if they were satisfied with the proffered plea and both said yes. “Ten years (the minimum sentence) is a long time and you certainly have earned them,” O’Neill began. “The victims have been reasonable and quite frankly, I think you got a break today,” O’Neill continued. “I think you and your associate terrorized this community for a period of time.” Mullarkey begins serving his sentence immediately. To the Daily Sun’s knowledge, he had no family members with him in court yesterday. — Gail Ober

BOAT RAMP from page one $556,250 in federal funds distributed through the Sportfish Restoration program, which is funded with proceeds from the marine gas tax, and $443,750 from the Statewide Public Boat Access Fund, for which $5 from each boat registration fee is earmarked. Owned by the Downing family for more than a century, the launch site will named the “Downing’s Landing Boat Access Facility” and so designated by a sign erected on the property. Normandeau noted that the property has served as a boat launch for many years and can continue to operate without further investment. By contrast, he remarked, that because the launch ramp on the Winnipesaukee River off Water Street in downtown Laconia was built on state

property, the department paid nothing for the land, but $1.7-million in construction costs. Normandeau said that the goal of the Statewide Boat Access Program is to provide launch sites on all of the ten largest lakes in the state. With the purchase of Downing’s Landing, he said that only Lake Sunapee and Lake Wentworth remain “on our hit list.” Although the state owns land for a launch site on Lake Sunapee, the Lake Sunapee Protective Association and town of Newbury have resisted the construction of an access road, parking lot and two 12-foot ramps for the past 22 years. Normandeau said that because Lake Wentworth is relatively shallow it offers few suitable locations. Altogether the department maintains 134 public boat ramps.

HAMAS from page 2 on Thursday arrested an ArabIsraeli man connected to Hamas and Islamic Jihad on accusations he planted a bomb on a bus in Tel Aviv that wounded 27 people in the hours before the agreement was announced Wednesday, police said. A Palestinian militant cell based in the West Bank village of Beit Lakiya dispatched the man, who lived in the village of Taybeh in Israel, to put a bomb on the bus, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said. He then got off and called his handlers, who remotely detonated the explosive by calling the phone, Rosenfeld said. “He admitted to carrying out the terrorist attack,” said Rosenfeld, who declined to name the man.

Attacks by Israeli Arabs are rare, though they have happened in the past. Nevertheless, the cease-fire raised hopes of a new era between Israel and Hamas. A senior Israeli official and three aides arrived in Cairo late Thursday and were escorted to Egypt’s intelligence headquarters, according to Egyptian airport officials, presumably to hammer out the details of a deal that would include easing a blockade of the territory. The airport officials declined to be named because they were not authorized to give information to the media. However, the vague language of the agreement announced Wednesday see next page

from preceding page and deep hostility between the combatants made it far from certain the bloodshed would end or that either side will get everything it wants. Israel seeks an end to weapons smuggling into Gaza, while Hamas wants a complete lifting of the border blockade imposed in 2007, after the militant group’s takeover of Gaza. Israeli officials also made it clear that their position had not warmed toward Hamas, which they view as a terror group aligned with their archenemy Iran and pledged to the destruction of the Jewish state. “Without a doubt, Israel in the long run won’t be able to live with an Iranian proxy on its border,” Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman told Israel’s Channel 10. “As long as Hamas continues to incite against Israel and talk about destroying Israel they are not a neighbor that we can suffer in the long run. But everything in its time.” Israel launched the offensive Nov. 14 to halt renewed rocket fire from Gaza, unleashing some 1,500 airstrikes on Hamas-linked targets, while Hamas and other Gaza militants showered Israel with just as many rockets. The eight days of fighting killed 161 Palestinians, including 71 civilians. Six Israelis, two soldiers and four civilians, were killed and dozens others wounded by rockets fired into residential neighborhoods. Gazans celebrated the truce after a night of revelry. “Today is different, the morning coffee tastes different and I feel we are off to a new start,” said Ashraf Diaa, a 38-year-old engineer from Gaza City. Hundreds of masked Hamas fighters appeared in public for the first time since the offensive during a funeral for five of their comrades. The armed men displayed grenade launchers and assault rifles mounted atop more than 100 brand-new pickup trucks. The latest round of fighting brought the Islamists unprecedented political recognition, with foreign ministers from Turkey and several Arab states visiting — a sharp contrast to Hamas’ past isolation. Israel and the United States, even while formally sticking to a policy of shunning Hamas, also acknowledged its central role by engaging in indirect negotiations with them.

A Everyday is a different day with new flavors daily

Egypt emerged as the pivotal mediator, raising its stature as a regional power. Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi will now have to assume a more direct role as a referee between Israel and Hamas, at a time when he faces many domestic challenges, including reviving a faltering economy. Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal and the head of the smaller Islamic Jihad militant group Ramadan Shalah met with Egypt’s intelligence chief Thursday as the follow-up talks geared up. Reaching a deal on a new border arrangement for Gaza would require major concessions from both sides. Hamas wants both Israel and Egypt to lift all border restrictions. In 2007, Israel and Morsi’s pro-Western predecessor, Hosni Mubarak, sealed the territory, banning virtually all travel and trade. Israel eased its restriction somewhat in 2010 in response to international pressure, allowing Gazans to import consumer goods, while barring virtually all exports and travel. Gaza’s battered economy recovered slightly, but the ban on exports prevented it from bouncing back fully. After Mubarak’s fall last year, Egypt eased travel through its Rafah crossing with Gaza. However, Morsi has rebuffed Hamas demands to allow full trade ties, in part because of fears this would give an opening to Israel to “dump” Gaza onto Egypt and deepen the split between Gaza and the West Bank. Palestinians hope the West Bank and Gaza, which lie on opposite sides of Israel, will one day make up the bulk of a Palestinian state. Israel has barred most travel between them during the past decade and closer ties between Egypt and Gaza could exacerbate the division. Israel, meanwhile, wants Egypt to halt weapons smuggling into Gaza through tunnels under the border. Hamas has been able to significantly boost its arsenal in the past four years, largely with weapons from Iran, according to Mashaal, who thanked Tehran for its support late Wednesday. As part of the cease-fire, Israel received U.S. pledges to help curb arms shipments to Gaza. The fighting gave a major boost to Hamas’ popularity, not only in Gaza but also in the West Bank, where the Islamists’ internationally backed rival, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, oversees a self-rule government. Abbas, the leading Palestinian proponent of nonviolence and negotiations with Israel, was forced to watch from the sidelines as his bitter rivals scored political points. A senior Abbas aide, Nabil Shaath, stood alongside Hamas leaders during Gaza City’s victory rally Thursday. Despite the symbolism, it was not clear whether the two sides would be able to mend their rift.

Cash-strapped post office testing same-day delivery WASHINGTON (AP) — Emboldened by rapid growth in e-commerce shipping, the cash-strapped U.S. Postal Service is moving aggressively this holiday season to start a premium service for the Internet shopper seeking the instant gratification of a store purchase: same-day package delivery. Teaming up with major retailers, the post office will begin the expedited service in San Francisco on Dec. 12 at a price similar to its competitors. If things run smoothly, the program will quickly expand next year to other big cities such as Boston, Chicago and New York. It follows similar efforts by eBay, Amazon. com, and most recently Wal-Mart Stores Inc., which charges a $10 flat rate for same-day delivery. The delivery program, called Metro Post, seeks to build on the post office’s double-digit growth in package volume to help offset steady declines in first-class and standard mail. Operating as a limited experiment for the next year, it is projected to generate between $10 million and $50 million in new revenue from deliveries in San Francisco alone, according to postal regulatory filings, or up to $500 million, if expanded to 10 cities. The filings do not reveal the mail agency’s anticipated expenses to implement same-day service,

which can only work profitably if retailers have enough merchandise in stores and warehouses to be quickly delivered to nearby residences in a dense urban area. The projected $500 million in potential revenue, even if fully realized, would represent just fraction of the record $15.9 billion annual loss that the Postal Service reported last week. But while startups in the late 1990s such as Kozmo.com notably failed after promising instant delivery, the Postal Service’s vast network serving every U.S. home could put it in a good position to be viable over the long term. The retail market has been rapidly shifting to Internet shopping, especially among younger adults, and more people are moving from suburb to city, where driving to a store can be less convenient. Postal officials, in interviews with The Associated Press, cast the new offering as “exciting” and potentially “revolutionary.” Analysts are apt to agree at least in part, if kinks can be worked out. “There is definitely consumer demand for sameday delivery, at the right price,” said Matt Nemer, a senior analyst at Wells Fargo Securities in San Francisco. “The culture in retail traditionally has been to see next page

PARADE from page one nesses have to offer and do some holiday shopping as well,’’ said Bullerwell. She said the parade also coincides with Small Business Saturday, which is observed nationally and encourages customers to shop at small, locallyowned businesses. She said that marching bands from Laconia High School, Gilford High School and Belmont High School will take part in the parade, courtesy of support from the Bank of New Hampshire, Meredith Village Savings Bank and Franklin Savings Bank. ‘’In addition to the bands there will be a float with the Grand Marshals, who are from the Santa Fund. We’ll also have a team of oxen, antique cars and Mr.

and Mrs. Santa, who will be accompanied by the Christmas Village elves,’’ said Bullerwell. She said a parade narative will be broadcast over loudspeakers with Pat Kelly and Nancy LeRoy broadcasting from the corner of Main Street and Pleasant Street. Once the parade passes up Main Street and through the heart of the downtown area it will proceed to Veterans Square where there there will be a lighting ceremony at the city’s Christmas tree, which this year features all new lights. ‘’We’re counting on good weather and a big turnout and hope that people will spend some time both before and after the parade finding out what downtown has to offer,’’ said Bullerwell.

TEXAS from page 2 cars on top of cars.” I-10’s eastbound lanes were expected to remain closed for most of Thursday. Texas Department of Public Safety trooper Stephanie Davis told KFDM that two people in an SUV died after the crash. She said at least 100 cars and trucks were involved in the accident.

Carroll said uninjured drivers tried to help as authorities sorted through the wreckage. “It’s just people helping people,” Carroll said. “The foremost thing in this holiday season is how other travelers were helping us when we were overwhelmed, sitting and holding, putting pressure on people that were injured.”

from preceding page get a customer into the store, with the immediacy of enjoying a purchase being the main draw. So sameday delivery could be huge for online retailers. The question is whether the economics can work.” He and others said that consumers are a fickle lot when it comes to shipping, seeking fast delivery, but also sensitive to its pricing. Many will order online and pick up merchandise at a store if it avoids shipping charges, or will agree to pay a yearly fee of $79 for a service such as Amazon Prime to get unlimited, free two-day delivery or even purchase a higherpriced item if it comes with “free” shipping. “Customers do like same-day delivery when it gets very close to a holiday or it otherwise becomes too late to shop,” said Jim Corridore, analyst with S&P Capital IQ, which tracks the shipping industry. “But while the

Postal Service has the ability to deliver to any address, they are not always known for their speed. To increase their speed might prove to be a much more complex offering than they’re thinking about.” As the Postal Service launches Metro Post and sets pricing, its target consumer is likely to include busy professionals such as Victoria Kuohung, 43. A dermatologist and mother of three young children, Kuohung for years has gone online for virtually all her family’s needs, including facial cleansers, books, clothing, toys, diapers and cookware.

Garment salesman held in 3 NYC merchant deaths NEW YORK (AP) — A garment salesman accused of systematically shooting three shopkeepers to death as they worked alone in their clothing stores was held without bail Thursday. Salvatore Perrone, who was held after his initial Brooklyn court appearance on murder charges, denies killing anyone, his lawyer said. Attorney Ken Jones, who represented Perrone only for the arraignment and hadn’t spent much time with him, said his client shows no remorse and appears “as though he could have some mental-health issues.” Perrone, of Staten Island, will be assigned another lawyer when he returns to court on Tuesday, prosecutors said. Perrone was taken into custody Wednesday in the suspected serial killings, which scores of detectives were investigating. A pharmacy worker recognized Perrone, 63, as the balding man shown in surveillance footage leaving the scene of the most recent shooting, on Nov. 16, with a duffel bag, police said. Another shopkeeper came forward and said Perrone had gone into his store and questioned him about whether he worked alone and when he closed, police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said. “It’s reasonable to assume he was going to keep doing this, and, by arresting him, we saved lives,” Kelly said. Detectives said they found the duffel bag at Perrone’s girlfriend’s home. Inside, they said, was a sawed-off rifle used in the killings, along with

.22-caliber ammunition, black gloves, women’s clothing, a bloody knife and a bottle of bleach. Perrone’s fingerprint was lifted from the murder weapon, Kelly said. Initially, authorities thought the killer might have targeted the Brooklyn shopkeepers, who were from Iran and Egypt, because of their Middle Eastern backgrounds. But on Wednesday, Kelly said there was no motive he could speak of. In the most recent killing, Rahmatollah Vahidipour, an Iranian, was shot three times in the head and chest at the She She Boutique. After that killing, detectives discovered the same gun was used in the fatal shootings of two other shopkeepers when ballistics matched the .22-caliber gun shell casings on all three. On July 6, Mohamed Gebeli, an Egyptian, was found shot at Valentino Fashion Inc. On Aug. 6, Isaac Kadare, also Egyptian, was shot in the head at Amazing 99 Cent Deal. There were other similarities in the deaths, authorities said: The bodies were all partially obscured, by clothing or, in one case, a box. The locations of the shops form an equilateral triangle and are about 4 miles apart, with addresses that contain the number eight. Police earlier this week said they were looking to speak to four people who possibly witnessed the most recent killing and released video and clear images of the four. But they zeroed in on the man with the bag, who they now say was Perrone.

from preceding page hung acknowledges that she would likely opt to wait an extra day or two for delivery, unless her purchase were a higher-priced electronics gadget or a special toy or gift for her son’s birthday. “I prefer not to spend my time driving in a car, fighting for parking, worrying about the kids, dealing with traffic and battling crowds for a limited selection in stores,” said Kuohung, as her 1-yearold-twins and 4-year-old son squealed in the background. “But right now Amazon delivers in two days since I’m a member of Prime, so it would have to be something I can’t get at the corner CVS or the grocery store down the street.” Under the plan, the Postal Service is working out agreements with at least eight and as many as 10 national retail chains for same-day delivery. The mail agency says nondisclosure agreements don’t allow it to reveal the companies. But given the somewhat limited pool of large-scale retailers — they must have a physical presence in 10 or more big U.S. cities to be a postal partner — the list is expected to include department stores, sellers of general merchandise, clothiers, even perhaps a major e-commerce company or two. Consumers will have until 2 or 3 p.m. to place an online order with a participating retailer, clicking the box that says “same-day delivery” and making

the payment. Postal workers then pick up the merchandise from nearby retail stores or warehouses for delivery to homes between 4 and 8 p.m. that day. In San Francisco, the post office will closely track work hours and travel, which could quickly add to costs depending on traffic, total package volume or the proximity of merchandise in a delivery area. “We’re trying to revolutionize shipping; we’re not simply trying to get a niche market of consumers,” said Gary Reblin, the Postal Service’s vice president for domestic products. He believes people of varying ages and income levels — young adults who don’t own cars, older Americans who are less mobile — will welcome avoiding costly or time-consuming trips to the store. By targeting big partners, Reblin said, the post office eventually hopes to push pricing down by making same-day delivery a standard option on retail web sites. The new same-day offering is part of the post office’s blossoming shipping and packaging business. That sector was one bright spot in the mail agency’s dismal 2012 financial report, which showed a loss of $15.9 billion and forecast more red ink next year This holiday season, the post office expects a 20 percent jump in its package volume, higher than its shipping rivals.

Budget clash leaves EU summit close to failure

Doctor says boxing legend ‘Macho’ Camacho is brain dead from gun shot SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Famed Puerto Rican boxer Hector “Macho” Camacho is clinically brain dead, doctors said Thursday, but family members disagreed on whether to take him off life support and two of the fighter’s aunts said later that relatives had agreed to wait two more days. Dr. Ernesto Torres said doctors had no more medical tests to perform on Camacho, who was shot in the face Tuesday night. “We have done everything we could,” said Torres, who is director of the Centro Medico trauma center in San Juan. “We have to tell the people of Puerto Rico and the entire world that Macho Camacho has died, he is brain dead.” He said at a news conference Thursday morning that Camacho’s father indicated he wanted the boxer taken off life support and his organs donated, but other relatives opposed the idea. “This is a very difficult moment,” Torres said. One of the fighter’s aunts, Aida Camacho, said Thursday evening that two of Camacho’s sisters had asked to have two more days to spend with him, and other family members had agreed even though they felt it was time to give in. “I’m a person of a lot of faith, and I believe in miracles, but science has spoken,” she said. Another aunt, Blanca Camacho, also said the family had agreed to the wishes of the two sisters from New York to hold off on ending life support. But, she added, “There’s nothing left here. He’s already dead.” Most of Camacho’s relatives left the hospital by Thursday night without commenting. About a dozen people stood vigil outside. One, Orvil Miller, a singer and actor, expressed sadness see BOXER page 31

BRUSSELS (AP) — The leaders of Britain and France staked out starkly different visions of the European Union’s future Thursday, leaving a summit on the EU budget teetering on the brink of failure after the first day. “I have my doubts that we will come to an agreement,” said German Chancellor Angela Merkel after a chaotic day of bilateral negotiations and a belated, short joint session of the 27 leaders. While British Prime Minister David Cameron is seeking to keep payments into EU coffers as low as possible, French President Francois Hollande called for sustained subsidies for farming and development programs for poorer nations. With each of the 27 nations having the power of veto over the 2014-2020 budget, the summit negotiations could stretch over the weekend, perhaps without result. Cameron voiced the concerns of several countries that do not want to see an increase in the bloc’s spending plan at a time when many member states are cutting budgets at home. “No, I’m not happy at all,” Cameron said about EU President Herman Van Rompuy’s offer to cap spending for 2014-2020 at €972 billion ($1.25 trillion) in spending commitments. “Clearly, at a time when we’re making difficult decisions at home over public spending, it would be quite wrong — it is quite wrong — for there to be

proposals for this increased extra spending in the EU,” Cameron said. Van Rompuy’s revised proposal late Thursday did not yield further to Cameron’s demands for cuts, keeping to the same total. The EU budget primarily funds programs to help farming and spur growth in the bloc’s less developed countries, and it amounts to about 1 percent of the EU’s gross domestic product. Hollande and Merkel said another summit meeting might be necessary. “We should not consider that if we don’t get there tomorrow or the day after, all would be lost,” Hollande said. “Germany wants to reach a goal, but there might also be the need for yet another stage,” Merkel said. The European Commission, the EU’s executive arm, supports more spending, arguing that crossborder initiatives will help create the economic growth and jobs that the bloc of a half-billion people needs, particularly during a financial crisis that has pushed some countries into recession. The amount of work Van Rompuy has to do to bring the conflicting views closer together was highlighted earlier Thursday as the bilateral meetings preceding the summit overran, forcing the opening discussions to be delayed by 2 ½ hours. Bilateral talks will resume early Friday, with a first joint session set for noon to see if a compromise is within reach.

North Stratford holds vigil for vet killed in Texas parade

NORTH STRATFORD, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire community is remembering a veteran who was killed in a Texas parade accident last week. The town of North Stratford held a candlelight vigil and salute Wednesday night for Sgt. Maj. Lawrence Boivin. He was one of the four killed last week when a train hit a float in a parade honoring veterans. Boivin grew up in North Stratford and graduated

from Stratford High School before serving 24 years in the Army, including spending tours overseas. In the Midland, Texas, parade, he pushed his wife to safety before the train struck. A funeral service was held at Fort Bragg, N.C., on Wednesday. Boivin will be laid to rest with full military honors at Arlington National Cemetery.

5 new businesses make their home on Gilford East Drive GILFORD — Gilford East Drive appears to be the hot new business avenue in the Lakes Region. With the recent move of MacDonald Veterinary Clinic from Union Avenue in Laconia to the former Wainwright Insurance building, there has been a wave of business growth on this small Gilford corridor, located just off Lake Shore Road and its intersection with Old Lake Shore Road. Kevin Sullivan of Weeks Commercial was a driving force in helping Dr. Robert MacDonald and his wife Susan select a location and space needed to expand the growing business of four years. The building located at 43 Gilford East Drive is positioning Dr. MacDonald with a future to double his business. “Treating small companion pets (cat, dogs, small At left: Dr. Rob McDonald of McDonald Veterinary Clinic, alongside office his team, Barbara Cavalley, De De Haley and Robin Fernald, are happy in their new home Gilford East Drive.

rodents) on Union Avenue in Laconia allowed for a great foundation for our business, however the need for more space and a quieter environment for our pets was crucial to keep moving forward,” stated Dr. MacDonald. The building in Gilford was a great fit from the start, one that happened to be closer to the majority of our patients, as well as creating room to expand. Dr. MacDonald also offers the exclusive New Hampshire veterinary clinic that treats chickens and other farm poultry. “The properties, land, and business spaces available on Gilford East Drive lent a perfect match for MacDonald’s Veterinary needs,” said Sullivan, “Dr. MacDonald has certainly carved a niche for his practice in the Lakes Region, and this acquisition will assist him in meeting his goals for the future.” The building is also home to Gator Signs and The Talon Hair Salon. Additional Gilford East Drive activity and business growth can be seen with Bill Seed’s coordination of the former Gould’s Garden Center (‘Agway’), owned by Jeff and Tracy Gould, sale to Bill Finethy of Gilford Home Center. Seed is another Weeks Commercial agent. Finethy recently opening Gilford True Value in the former Agway building. Sullivan also worked with Rich Vickery on the acquisition of 29 Gilford East Drive, where Weldfab and Watermark Marine Construction are currently housed. Catherine Crear, esthetician at Skin Care Plus Day Spa, opened her new business this year alongside Budget Tax Service and More, LLP, a full-service accounting and tax services firm, where partners Shelli Boucher, CPA and Karen Winkelmann, CPA are dedicated to providing individuals and small businesses with professional accounting services of the highest integrity. These women entrepreneurs worked with Weeks agent Warren Clement and signed leases with MRRB — Real Estate Ventures at 57 East Gilford Drive. In total there are now five new businesses at one great location. There are still a couple of other opportunities on Gilford East Drive, for those looking to capitalize on this energy in the Lakes Region. Weeks Commercial is located Laconia and is the only full service commercial real estate company in the Lakes Region. The company offers sales and leasing commercial real estate, along with real estate development consulting, and full service business brokerage. (www.cbcweeks.com, 528-3388)

MEREDITH — The Meredith/InterLakes Alumni Association has put together its Annual Giving Letter. The letter is sent to all alumni currently in the association’s database.

A copy of their updated class list needs to be sent to the Alumni Association for entry to the database. Individual alumni members may send their current information to the association. All information can be emailed to Nancy Morrill, nmorrill160@yahoo. com. Alumni may consider sending a donation for any amount to - The Meredith/I-L Alumni Assoc.. PO Box 1076, Meredith, NH 03253 The money that is raised from this fund raiser is mainly used to continue the association;s yearly scholarships given to worthy seniors at Inter-Lakes High School. This past year the asso-

ciation was able to award three $1,000 scholarships thanks to the generosity of its members and supporters. The funds are also used in part to help support the Annual Alumni Gathering, which is held each year on the first Sunday in June. This event gives all alumni the chance to reconnect with friends and class mates. Another expense that is covered each year is the engraving and purchasing of the Alumni Loyalty Cup, which has been awarded to a worthy senior since 1929. Each year the 50 year Class members are the honored guests of the Alumni Association, and this coming year the Class of 1963 will be honored.

from preceding page her business, it prevented patrons from visiting the gallery and shop. “This was really a blessing in disguise”, said McCarthy, “I’ve often thought about having a gallery downtown and this seemed like the perfect time and opportunity to make the move. Canal Street is such a nice, quaint street and very artistic. It is the perfect place to showcase the work of visiting artists.” In addition to curating monthly art exhibits, McCarthy also runs a small but quirky gift shop at The Studio.

Asked what makes her gifts different from those found at other shops, she replied, “Everything I have for sale at The Studio is art inspired. It all reflects an artistic and creative spirit, and it’s stuff I love. You can find an unusual gift without a trip to Boston or the Seacoast.” The Studio is open Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., with additional hours by chance or appointment. Monthly exhibits are planned and the public is always welcome. McCarthy can be reached at 603-455-8008.

LACONIA — The Laconia Altrusa Club recently made a very generous donation of hundreds of copies of a locally-written and published children’s book to the Reach Out and Read program at LRGHealthcare. Now in its 23rd year nationally, the Reach Out and Read (ROR) program has seen a revival the past few years here in the Lakes and Three Rivers regions of New Hampshire. LRGHealthcare employees and ROR program co-directors Karen Davis, RN and Mary Bidgood-Wilson, FNP, CNM find ways to purchase books at a reduced cost. In this case, they were thrilled to accept a straight donation of books. “The goal of the Reach Out and Read program is to prepare America’s youngest children to succeed in school by partnering with doctors and LRGHealthcare staff to ‘prescribe books’ and encourage literacy from a very early age — engaging parents and promoting reading as a part of everyday life for all children,” explains Davis. “We are grateful for this very generous gift from Laconia Altrusa Club members who do so much good throughout the community.” Through the Reach Out and Read program every patient ages six months through five years receives a brand new age-appropriate book at each ‘well-child’ visit with their doctor. There are a total of seven participat-

ing LRGHealthcare practices/clinics in the area. This particular book entitled “Betty the Bookworm Visits the Library” was written by local resident and Altrusa Club member Barbara DeAngelis and was illustrated by Brenda Mento. The main character, Betty, was the brainchild of Sue Clauson, also a member of Altrusa. Not-so-coincidentally at the heart of the story is an introduction to books and a new-found love for libraries and reading. “Altrusa members realize the importance of encouraging literacy from a very early age so we are thrilled to support the Reach Out and Read program. The opportunity to give back to our community is always rewarding, especially when the focus is the health, growth, and well-being of children. Learning to read and write at an early age is essential to this mission,” explains Barbara DeAngelis, author and Altrusa Literacy Co-chair. Altrusa raises funds through grants and events such as Taste of the Lakes Region. The organization also donates books to the LRGH Family Birthplace which are included in a take-home gift bags for new mothers in an effort to instill reading to children right from the start. For more information or to learn how you can make a donation to this program, please contact the Office of Philanthropy at LRGHealthcare at 7371042 or visit our website: www.lrgh.org.

from preceding page 18, at 7 p.m. the band will be performing at Woodside at the Taylor Community. Saturday, December 22, is the last of the holiday concerts and this one will be at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church on Parade Road in Laconia at 6:30 p.m.. All the aforementioned concerts are open to the public and are free of charge. An added treat at all performances

will be jazz numbers by the New Horizons Jazz Ensemble, the Laketones. The New Horizons Band rehearses weekly at the Music Clinic in Belmont and all interested musicians are invited to join the group. Beginning, intermediate as well as advanced musicians are welcome.

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis have social savvy. You realize that people need to be heard. Not everything they want is desirable, possible or convenient to you, but you encourage expression anyhow, and this makes all the difference. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). In spite of the bustle and craziness of the world, you’ll feel a human kinship. You’ll regard your fellow travelers as partners, whether they happen to be family, friends, co-workers or strangers. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll want a change. Maybe this comes out of a sense of frustration or because you’re comparing someone else’s results with yours. You have to ask yourself: Would this change be rational? AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The walls of a home have absorbed all of the energy generated between them. The walls have stories, and you have a gift for hearing those stories or at least detecting their emotional tone. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There’s a risk you’ve been considering for some time now. You’ll finally have the guts to take it. You have everything to gain and nothing to lose. The adventure is on! TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 23). You have an instinct for success this year. You envision a desired result and carefully define your aims. You’ll recognize a pattern in January and use what you know to make a timely play. February brings interference from your love life, and the interesting twist invigorates you. You’ll help someone dear in March. Libra and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 50, 1, 35, 28 and 15.

TUNDRA

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Beware of the slick salesman. This person may not be selling a product so much as selling him or herself. Remarks that sound offhanded and casual could actually be well thought-out and timetested. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It won’t take courage to move forward, only curiosity. Today the comfort zones, strangely, bring no comfort at all. All the action happens outside the realm of what is known. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Sometimes there’s a calm before the storm. Today there will be a storm before the calm. But you’re ready for a little excitement. When emotions run high, you’ll be at your best. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Whatever compels you to make up your mind about what to do or who to be is a positive force. That’s why even a crisis can be a blessing. The Greek word “krisis” means “decision.” LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll achieve an understanding where there hasn’t been one for a long time. This may not be an agreement, but understanding is the first step. Soon the communication will improve even more in this regard. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You know where you stand, and those around you know, too. This is no small feat. It takes a strong person to question, decide and declare himself. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Not all useful work is satisfying to you. But if you’re doing something that is useful and elegant, too, ideally reflecting your values and aesthetics, you will be most pleased. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, November 23, 2012— Page 25

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, Nov. 23, the 328th day of 2012. There are 38 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 23, 1942, during World War II, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed a measure establishing the U.S. Women’s Coast Guard Reserve, or SPARS (an abbreviation of the U.S. Coast Guard motto “Semper Paratus” — “Always Ready”). On this date: In 1765, Frederick County, Md. became the first colonial entity to repudiate the British Stamp Act. In 1804, the 14th president of the United States, Franklin Pierce (puhrs), was born in Hillsboro, N.H. In 1887, actor Boris Karloff was born William Henry Pratt in London. In 1903, Enrico Caruso made his American debut at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York, appearing in “Rigoletto.” In 1910, American-born physician Hawley Harvey Crippen was hanged at Pentonville Prison in London for murdering his wife, Cora. (Crippen’s mistress, Ethel Le Neve, was acquitted in a separate trial of being an accessory.) In 1936, Life, the photojournalism magazine created by Henry R. Luce (loos), was first published. In 1943, during World War II, U.S. forces seized control of Tarawa and Makin (MAH’-kihn) atolls from the Japanese. In 1959, the musical “Fiorello!,” starring Tom Bosley as legendary New York Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia, opened on Broadway. In 1971, the People’s Republic of China was seated in the U.N. Security Council. In 1980, some 2,600 people were killed by a series of earthquakes that devastated southern Italy. In 1992, in Germany, three Turks were killed when rightist militants firebombed their homes in Moelln (muln); in Berlin, hundreds of demonstrators protested in solidarity with foreigners. Country music star Roy Acuff died in Nashville at age 89. In 1996, a commandeered Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 767 crashed into the water off the Comoros Islands, killing 125 of the 175 people on board, including all three hijackers. One year ago: Yemen’s authoritarian President Ali Abdullah Saleh (AH’-lee ahb-DUH’-luh sahLEH’) agreed to step down amid a fierce uprising to oust him after 33 years in power. Today’s Birthdays: Former Labor Secretary William E. Brock is 82. Actress Elmarie Wendel is 80. Actor Franco Nero is 71. Actress Susan Anspach is 70. Screenwriter Joe Eszterhas is 68. Actor-comedy writer Bruce Vilanch is 65. Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., is 62. Singer Bruce Hornsby is 58. Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., is 57. Actor Maxwell Caulfield is 53. Actor John Henton is 52. TV personality Robin Roberts (“Good Morning America”) is 52. Rock singer-musician Ken Block (Sister Hazel) is 46. Rock musician Charlie Grover is 46. Actress Salli Richardson-Whitfield is 45. Actor Oded Fehr (OH’-dehd fayr) is 42. Rapper-actor Kurupt (Tha Dogg Pound) is 40. Actor Page Kennedy is 36. Actress Kelly Brook is 33. Actor Lucas Grabeel is 28. Actress-singer Miley Cyrus is 20. Actor Austin Majors is 17.

Anyone can select a tag and purchase one or more items for the child and help make their Christmas extra special this year. All My Life Jewelers, located in downtown Laconia, will be collecting toys for The Salvation Army starting on Saturday, Nov. 24 for a toy drive for children of families who need last minute toys. Captain Sally Warren said the Salvation Army expresses thanks to their many partners including community Angel Tag supporters, The Santa Fund, The WLNH Children’s Auction, and Toys for Tots, who help make Christmas happen for so many needy families.

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Dear Annie: Several months ago, my 17-year-old son’s girlfriend had a baby. I was upset at first, but then realized that the couple was young and needed help. My house now looks like a daycare center. For the whole nine months, we were part of the pregnancy. I paid for the mother to have an additional ultrasound, purchased a heartbeat bear for her and threw her a wonderful baby shower. Her mother helped a little, but not much. Two days after the baby shower, she told my son he isn’t the father. He doesn’t believe it and is really hurt. When the baby was born, we were notified via text. My son filed for paternity, and the mother was given 20 days to respond. She didn’t. My son took his DNA test, and his ex-girlfriend hired a lawyer. The mother of my grandson is 20 years old, and I believe she is scared of her mother. That woman kept her own children away from their biological father and controls everything about her children. She doesn’t allow her daughter to take the baby out of the house without a family member accompanying her. When the baby’s mother goes to work, she takes the baby with her. We cannot get any answers from them about why they won’t allow us to be part of our new grandchild’s life. It’s been two months, and we haven’t been able to see or hold him yet. What can we do? -- Heartbroken Mamaw Dear Heartbroken: Your son has taken a DNA test, and right now, all you can do is wait for the results. If it turns out the baby is not his, please let it go, no matter how difficult that would be for you. However, if the baby is indeed your son’s child, he should seek legal counsel, file for joint custody and put a visitation and child support plan into effect as soon as possible. Dear Annie: I am a retired person in my 60s who has been successful as a parent, spouse, environmental activist, em-

ployee and now as a community volunteer. I have a simple plea: Please, America, be more tolerant, respectful and civil when you express your political and religious beliefs to friends and family. Just because someone does not share your exact interpretation of the Constitution or the Bible does not mean they are any less patriotic, ethical or spiritual than you. Remember, tolerance and willingness to compromise are founding principles of our wonderful country. -- In Favor of Tolerance and Respect Dear In Favor: Amen to that. We don’t know why it has become so difficult for people to express themselves without resorting to disdain, anger and even violence, but it’s time to stop. The holiday season is a good time to remember the idea of peace and goodwill toward your fellow citizens. Dear Annie: I would like to respond to “Single Too Long,” the 45-year-old never-married man who can’t find the “right lady” who carries no baggage. At age 55, I am one such lady and have several others as friends. We are all highly educated engineers and, being able to support ourselves, did not have to settle for just any man. However, we were not often asked out, perhaps because our intelligence was intimidating, or because we were perceived as not being sufficiently needy. Men like to feel needed. My advice is to look within your own age group for women to date. Men seem to gravitate toward women at least 10 years their junior, which upsets women of their own age -who would be thrilled to date them. Second, Annie’s advice to go where the women are is spot-on. To male-deprived activities such as church and singing groups (which are always desperate for more tenors and basses), I would add group exercise classes such as Zumba and yoga. Men are welcomed into these classes, which offer great physical benefits regardless of the dating possibilities. -- Schenectady, N.Y.

Laconia Leafs volunteer time and muscle to help set up Santa’s Village

LACONIA — For the 37th year in a row, the happiest place in the Lakes Region later this month will be the Laconia Community Center, thanks to the efforts of many volunteer Laconia Leafs elves. The annual holiday tradition, now in its 37th year, opens Nov. 29 this year and runs through Dec. 2. Last Thursday, two of the Christmas Village founders, brothers Ernie and Armand Bolduc, along with a few of their friends and members of the Laconia Leafs hockey team unloaded truckloads of scenery and hauled up hundreds of decorations, lights, tinsel and other essential ingredients for making a magical holiday experience come true for thousands of area children. Christmas Village was modeled after a similar tradition started in Bristol by Richard “Wink” Tapply. Tapply’s son, Dick Tapply, who was Laconia’s Parks and Recreation director in the 1970s, started Christmas Village in the city, along with the Bolducs and a few other people who had lots of energy and holiday spirit. Ernie Bolduc said that, each year, between 4,000 and 5,000 people, of all ages, come through Christmas Village, which is free to the public. Bolduc said that, although the event is free, donations are welcome. He added that the Village takes thousands of volunteer hours, including the baking of more than 500 dozen cookies which are given with hot chocolate to the children after they have seen Santa Claus. “We need volunteers to bake cookies,” he added, noting that anyone who is interested can bring the cookies to the Community Center or contact the center to have cookies picked up. Despite all the hard work, Bolduc said doing something nice for

Will Fay, head coach of the Laconia Leafs, said the team has been helping erect Christmas Village for the last 11 years. A friend of Bolduc family, Fay said he was asked one year to help out and he and the team have been eager to do it every year since. “We probably provide 30 hours of help, but that pales in comparison to what others do,” Fay said.

Gilford Bicentennial Committee plans candlelight stroll

Just some of the many Belknap County 4-H members and leaders receiving awards at the 4-H Jubilee held recently at the Historic Belknap Mill in Laconia. (Courtesy photo)

Belknap County 4-H celebrates a successful year LACONIA — Over 100 members of the Belknap County 4-H family came together recently, from all corners of the county, to celebrate the successes of the past year. Gathering at the Historic Belknap Mill, volunteers, friends and families of the 4-H program were treated to turkey pie and sides generously donated by Hart’s Turkey Farm, as well as a plethora of other side dishes and desserts brought by guests. Over 50 certificates and awards were presented for recognition of accomplishments or appreciation for service. The range of accomplishments was staggering from acknowledging our youngest “clover bud” participants (ages 5-7) to awards for teen mem-

bers who made contributions to 4-H at the County, State and Regional levels, to appreciating several long time volunteers completing 25 to 40 years of service to the 4-H program. The event also featured a pumpkin decorating contest, prize raffle, and talent showcase by 4-H Youth. The event was made possible by the 4-H program, the Belknap County 4-H Fair Association and the Belknap County 4-H Foundation. For more information on becoming involved with Belknap County 4-H Programs, call UNH Cooperative Extension at 527-5475. from preceding page gardens and “green” building.

GILFORD — The Gilford Bicentennial Committee has for the past few months been in the process of planning its final event, a Candlelight Stroll on Saturday, December 15, from 4-7 p.m. There will be many, many lights starting at The Gilford Library on Potter Hill Road, to the SAU Building on Belknap Mt. Road, all the way to the Rowe House. All residents of Gilford and surrounding towns are invited to participate. The SAU building will be open with craftspeople. Tables are $20 for an inside booth, and there are still tables available. Businesses are also welcome, if they would like to have items, or gift certificates on hand for people looking for last minute gifts. There are activities planned at the Library, the Grange, 1834 Meetinghouse, and at the Rowe House. One homeowner has kindly offered to open her decorated home and is planning activities that would appeal to children, creating some tree ornaments. A second homeowner will have their home open and will be offering chowder and chili, along with a display of soy candles and there will also be a display on trapping. Santa will also stop by for a visit. There will be a horse drawn wagon ride for those interested. The evening will conclude with “A Dickens Christmas” program at 7 p.m. at the Gilford Community Church. The Bicentennial Committee is looking for people who would like to join in the festivities, either as a caroler or musician playing holiday music. Those who live in the village and would like others see their beautifully decorated home or who would like to bake Christmas cookies, setting up the hundreds of lights along the street and at the buildings, or help with maintaining the bon-fire at the Village Field entrance are all welcome. Contact Dee at: dchitty@gilfordnh.org or Sally at 528-0001 to become a part of this extra special holiday stroll.

LRCC student Anca Muresan wins Mildred Beach Hospitality Scholarship LACONIA — Lakes Region Community College (LRCC) Restaurant Management Honor Student, Anca Muresan of Meredith was recently presented with the Mildred A. Beach Hospitality Scholarship by the Lakes Region Tourism Association. The scholarship is given annually to a student that demonstrates leadership and outstanding academic performance in preparation for entrance into the hospitality industry. Muresan maintains a perfect 4.0 grade point average in her LRCC studies and serves as President of the College’s Hospitality Club that serves business and industry throughout the Lakes Region and beyond. Through their efforts LRCC Restaurant Management, Culinary Arts, and Baking and Pastry Arts students raise sufficient funds annually allowing members to experience a week-long Bermuda cruise at the end of each academic year. “It was a surprise for me to get the LRTA Scholarship,” says Muresan about the Beach Scholarship Award. “The LRTA has been good to LRCC hospitality students over the years and I am proud to be one of them. The Common Man family of restaurants (where Muresan is presently employed) has played an active role in the LRTA and the business has influenced my desire to excel in the restaurant industry.” She said the LRCC’s Hospitality Club has given a great deal to the Lakes Region community. “I am

BOXER from page 18 about Camacho’s fate and recalled his admiration for the fighter’s flamboyance. “He had the combination of the skills of a boxer along with a great sense for entertainment,” Miller said. Steve Tannenbaum, a friend and a former boxing agent for Camacho, said in a phone interview that he idolized Camacho as a boxer. “He is one of the greatest small fighters that I have ever seen,” he said. “Hector Camacho had a legendary status.” Tannenbaum said he initially believed Camacho would survive. “He was almost like the indestructible man. He had so many troubles with the law, so many altercations in his life. It’s a great shame.”

so proud of everyone that is involved in the Club today, students and professors,” continues Muresan. “Everyone is doing an amazing job and giving their best every day. The Club adopted a family for the Secret Santa Fund, provided food and service for the Salvation Army Turkey Plunge, and donated culinary equipment to LRCC’s new Baking and Pastry Associate Degree Program.” Lakes Region Community College is a fully accredited, comprehensive community college located in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire that serves over 1,200 students annually. LRCC offers 23 associate degree programs including Nursing, Fire Technology, Energy Services, Media Arts, Culinary Arts, Automotive, and Marine Technology, as well as short-term certificate programs. In addition, LRCC provides a strong background in Liberal Arts for students who choose to do their first two years at a community college and then transfer to a four-year college or university for a baccalaureate degree. LRCC is part of the Community College System of New Hampshire.

The 50-year-old Camacho was shot as he and a friend sat in a Ford Mustang parked outside a bar Tuesday night. Police spokesman Alex Diaz said officers found nine small bags of cocaine in the friend’s pocket, and a 10th bag open inside the car. Camacho’s friend, identified as 49-year-old Adrian Mojica Moreno, was killed in the attack. Doctors had initially said Camacho was expected to survive, but his condition worsened and his heart stopped briefly overnight Tuesday, Torres said. The bullet entered his jaw and lodged in his shoulder after tearing through three of four main arteries in his neck, affecting blood flow through his brain, doctors said. “That lack of oxygen greatly damaged Macho Camacho’s brain,” Torres said.
