Laconia unemployment rate highest of N.H. cities By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Although unemployment in the city has tumbled from 10.4-percent to 6.5-percent during the first 10 months of the year, the rate remained the highest among the eleven cities in the state in October. According to the New Hampshire Department of Employment Security, 530

of the city’s labor force of 8,120 were out of work in October, 330 less than the 860 who were jobless in January. Berlin and Franklin, which each counted 270 people without jobs and posted unemployment rates of 6.1-percent, were the only other cities where unemployment topped six-percent. The unemployment rate in the city is 1.5-percent above the state average of five-percent and tops the rate for Belknap

County of 5.2-percent. Likewise, the unemployment rate for the Laconia MicroNECTA, or urban cluster consisted of the city and towns of Belmont, Gilford, Gilmanton and Meredith, stood at 5.5-percent, one point below that for the city. The Department of Employment Security counts 15 public institutions and non-profit corporations among the 23 largest employsee uNEMPLOyMENt page 11

During class, texting is the new doodling

SUVA, Fiji (AP) — Three teWILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) — When his professors drone, Dan Kautz whips out his phone. Kautz, a senior at Wilkes University, might send a text message to someone across the room — “I can’t wait to get out of here” — or make plans with his roommates. He’s become so adept at texting during class that he can tap out a message without even looking at the screen, making it appear as if he’s paying attention to the instructor when he’s really chatting with his girlfriend. “Every single person I know texts in class at least occasionally,” said Kautz, a communications studies major from Pelham, N.Y. It’s no surprise that high school and college students are obsessive texters. What alarms Wilkes psychology professors Deborah Tindell and Robert Bohlander is how rampant the practice has become during class: Their recent study shows that texting at the school has surpassed doodling, daydreaming and note-passing to become the top classroom distraction. The anonymous survey of 269 Wilkes students found that nine in 10 admit to sending text messages during class — and nearly half say it’s easy to do so undetected. Even more troubling, 10 percent say that they have sent or received texts during exams, and that 3 percent admit to using their phones to cheat. The phenomenon is part of a broader revolution in the way young adults communicate. Most prefer texting to e-mail and certainly to talking

Authorities in Saudi Arabia arrest 149 al-Qaida suspects RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — Saudi authorities said Friday they arrested 149 al-Qaida suspects in a months-long sweep and thwarted attacks inside the kingdom on government officials, media personalities and civilian targets. Saudi Arabia’s anti-terror campaign has largely crushed al-Qaida’s operations in the kingdom since a series of attacks there that began in 2003. Some key militants, however, fled across the southern border to Yemen, where the regional al-Qaida branch has re-established a stronghold from which to plot attacks on Saudi Arabia and beyond. The new arrest raids over the past eight months revealed that al-Qaida-linked militants have also been able to maintain or rebuild an organizational structure inside Saudi Arabia with close links to al-Qaida leaders in Yemen. Interior Ministry spokesman Mansour al-Turki said those arrested had organized

themselves into three networks across the kingdom that had no knowledge of one another as well as several independent smaller cells. Most of the suspects arrested were Saudis; 25 were foreigners, said al-Turki. One woman was also among them. Saudi forces seized weapons and about $600,000 in the raids, he said. The groups had foreign links, raised funds and trained their members in the use of weapons and making explosives. They also sent some members to areas of conflict outside of Saudi Arabia, he said, without elaborating. Al-Turki said the sweep was not connected to last month’s failed mail bomb plot, which the Yemen-based al-Qaida offshoot has claimed it was behind. Saudi Arabia provided the key intelligence information that led to the last-minute foiling of the plot, in which mail bombs addressed to the U.S. ended up on planes flying out of

Yemen. The unexploded bombs were intercepted at airports in Dubai and England. Al-Turki said those arrested had been planning more than half a dozen attacks against Saudi government and military officials and establishments, as well as civilians and media figures. Some of the attacks were in advanced stages of preparations, he said. “Uncovering these cells is part of work that never stops,” he said. “The security authorities are continuously working to combat this misled group whether inside the kingdom or outside it, as it targets us or others through their abuse of Islam.” He said planning documents and computers were also seized. Some suspects connected to the plots have not been arrested and some are abroad, he said. Interpol has been informed. Some of the suspects were contributors to militant forums on the Internet and were identified by their usernames.

LONDON (AP) — U.S. allies around the world have been briefed by American diplomats about an expected release of classified U.S. files by the WikiLeaks website that is likely to cause international embarrassment and could damage some nations’ relations with the United States. The release of hundreds of thousands of State Department cables is expected this weekend, although WikiLeaks has not been specific about the timing. The cables

are thought to include private, candid assessments of foreign leaders and governments and could erode trust in the U.S. as a diplomatic partner. In Britain, Prime Minister David Cameron’s spokesman, Steve Field, said Friday that the government had been told of “the likely content of these leaks” by U.S. Ambassador Louis Susman. Field declined to say what Britain had been warned to expect. “I don’t want to speculate about pre-

cisely what is going to be leaked before it is leaked,” Field said. In Washington, State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said U.S. diplomats were continuing the process of warning governments around the world about what might be in the documents. Many fear the cables will embarrass the United States and its allies, and reveal sensitive details of how the U.S. conducts relations with other countries.

Roadshow Begins Next Week in Laconia! By Jason Delong

Treasure Hunters Roadshow STAFF WRITER Clean out your attics, closets and lock boxes, because the Roadshow is coming to Laconia next week. Roadshow experts will be in town examining antiques, collectibles, gold and silver. While the Roadshow will accept anything that’s old, they will be focusing on gold and silver coins dated 1964 and before, military items, toys and trains, musical instruments, pocket and wrist watches.

Coins made before 1964 are 90% silver and valuable because of the silver content or could be worth even more if one happens to be a rare date.” is expected to be a popular category this week due to soaring gold prices. Expert buyers for the Roadshow have noticed a tremendous increase in the amount of gold coming to the

Got Gold? This week, visitors can cash in on antiques, collectibles, gold, silver, coins or just about anything that is old. Roadshow and for good reason. Record gold prices have Roadshow guests cashing in on broken jewelry or jewelry they don’t wear anymore with our “fair and honest” purchase offers. The Roadshow encourages anyone planning a visit to take a minute and examine their jewelry box or their lock box at the bank and gather anything that’s gold. If a guest is not sure if something is gold, bring it anyway and the Roadshow staff will test it for free. Other gold items of interest include gold coins, gold ounces, gold proof sets and dental gold. Other types of items Roadshow experts hope to see include old toys and train sets. Archie Davis, roadshow toy expert spoke about some of the top toys getting great offers. “Old tin windup toys from the late 1800’s through the 1960’s are in great demand now.” said Davis, “Especially those that are character related. Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, the Flintstones or any character toys are sought. Old Buddy L toys from the 1920’s to 1960’s are in demand.” Basically any toys made before 1965 are wanted. Train sets made by Lionel,

American Flyer, Marklin and others have the potential to fetch high prices. Davis also stressed, “Toys with boxes and in mint condition bring sensational prices. Most of the toys that come to the Roadshow are not in perfect shape but can still bring good prices from

collectors.” When expert Tom Fuller was asked what he enjoyed most about working at the Roadshow, he was quick to answer “Old coins and paper currency. For as long as I can remember I have been fascinated with collecting coins.

I would go through the change in my parents grocery store looking for rare dates and errors. Once, I found a silver quarter that I sold for $300.00. Not bad for an 8 year old.” Fuller went on to explain that any U.S. coins dated 1964 and before are most sought after by collectors. Coins made before 1964 are 90% silver and valuable because of the silver content or could be worth even more if one happens to be a rare date. “We help people sort through their coins for unique dates.

Pat Buchanan

Why are we still in Korea? This writer was 11 years old when the shocking news came on June 25, 1950, that North Korean armies had crossed the DMZ. Within days, Seoul had fallen. Routed U.S. and Republic of Korea troops were retreating toward an enclave in the southeast corner of the peninsula that came to be known as the Pusan perimeter. In September came Gen. MacArthur’s masterstroke: the Marine landing at Inchon behind enemy lines, the cut-off and collapse of the North Korean Army, recapture of Seoul and the march to the Yalu. “Home by Christmas!” we were all saying. Then came the mass intervention of a million “volunteers” of the People’s Liberation Army that had, in October 1949, won the civil war against our Nationalist Chinese allies. Suddenly, the U.S. Army and Marines were in headlong retreat south. Seoul fell a second time. There followed a war of attrition, the firing of MacArthur, the repudiation of Harry Truman and his “nowin war,” the election of Ike and, in June 1953, an armistice along the DMZ where the war began. Fifty-seven years after that armistice, a U.S. carrier task force is steaming toward the Yellow Sea in a show of force after the North fired 80 shells into a South Korean village. We will stand by our Korean allies, says President Obama. And with our security treaty and 28,000 U.S. troops in South Korea, many on the DMZ, we can do no other. But why, 60 years after the first Korean War, should Americans be the first to die in a second Korean War? Unlike 1950, South Korea is not an impoverished ex-colony of Japan. She is the largest of all the “Asian tigers,” a nation with twice the population and 40 times the economy of the North. Seoul just hosted the G-20. And there is no Maoist China or Stalinist Soviet Union equipping Pyongyang’s armies. The planes, guns, tanks and ships of the South are far superior in quality. Why, then, are we still in South Korea? Why is this quarrel our quarrel? Why is this war, should it come, America’s war? High among the reasons we fought in Korea was Japan, then a nation rising from the ashes after half its cities had been reduced to rubble. But, for 50 years now, Japan has had the second largest economy and is among the most advanced nations on earth. Why cannot Japan defend herself? Why does this remain our responsibility, 65 years after MacArthur took the surrender in Tokyo Bay? The Soviet Empire, against which we defended Japan, no longer exists, nor does the Soviet Union. Russia holds the southern Kurils, taken as spoils from World War II, but rep-

resents no threat. Indeed, Tokyo is helping develop Russia’s resources in Siberia. Why, when the Cold War has been over for 20 years, do all these Cold War alliances still exist? Obama has just returned from a Lisbon summit of NATO, an alliance formed in 1949 to defend Western Europe from Soviet tank armies on the other side of the Iron Curtain that threatened to roll to the Channel. Today, that Red Army no longer exists, the captive nations are free, and Russia’s president was in Lisbon as an honored guest of NATO. Yet we still have tens of thousands of U.S. troops in the same bases they were in when Gen. Eisenhower became supreme allied commander more than 60 years ago. Across Europe, our NATO allies are slashing defense to maintain social safety nets. But Uncle Sam, he soldiers on. We borrow from Europe to defend Europe. We borrow from Japan and China to defend Japan from China. We borrow from the Gulf Arabs to defend the Gulf Arabs. To broker peace in Palestine, Obama began his presidency with a demand that Israel halt all new construction of settlements in East Jerusalem and the West Bank. Today, as his price for a one-timeonly 90-day freeze on new construction on the West Bank, but not East Jerusalem, “Bibi” Netanyahu is demanding 20 F-35 strike fighters, a U.S. commitment to a Security Council veto of any Palestinian declaration of independence, and assurances the U.S. will support a permanent Israeli presence on the Jordan river. And the Israelis want it all in writing. This, from a client state upon which we have lavished a hundred billion dollars in military aid and defended diplomatically for decades. How to explain why America behaves as she does? From 1941 to 1989, she played a great heroic role as defender of freedom, sacrificing and serving mankind, a role of which we can be forever proud. But having won that epochal struggle against the evil empire, we found ourselves in a world for which we were unprepared. Now, like an aging athlete, we keep trying to relive the glory days when all the world looked with awe upon us. We can’t let go, because we don’t know what else to do. We live in yesterday — and our rivals look to tomorrow. (Syndicated columnist Pat Buchanan has been a senior advisor to three presidents, twice a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination and the presidential nominee of the Reform Party in 2000. He won the New Hampshire Republican Primary in 1996.)

LETTERS Far too often, the innocent go to prison while the guilty go free To the editor, Who, we need to ask, are they protecting from whom? By “they,” I’m referring to the Moultonboro Police Department, the Carroll County District Attorney and the New Hampshire Supreme Court. How has it happened that our government units are now the champions of an illegal trespasser over the rights of Ward “Locky” Bird, an upstanding town citizen looking to protect his property? It certainly wasn’t supposed to be this way when the great American Experiment began over two centuries ago. “For the Founders,” writes internationally recognized constitutional expert John E. Finn of Wesleyan University, “the protection of liberty itself meant protection for property, and indeed, property was sometimes said to be the first object of liberty.” James Madison, chief author of the Constitution, writes in Federalist 10 that protection of the rights of property “is the first object of government.” As he sits in his cell at the New Hampshire State Prison, Moultonboro/ Meredith farmer Locky Bird, must be wondering what happened to his country’s Constitution that was supposed to protect his property rights. Now, according to the Town of Moultonboro, Carroll County and the State of New Hampshire, it is a crime to protect one’s property, especially if one is also exercising his supposed constitutional right to bear arms. In truth, it seems like our modern government representatives are more informed by Mein Kampf, Saddam Hussein and George Orwell than by James Madison and Thomas Jefferson. For over 100 years there has been a steady erosion and partisan-based reinterpretation of the Constitution and Bill of Rights until, it seems, the only ones left with any “right to privacy” are women seeking an abortion. Supreme Court nominees are approved by the Senate only after they pass one politically motivated

litmus test or another. And those who win confirmation repeatedly indulge in Lochnerizing (it’s a great word; look it up!), basing their opinions on nonconstitutional foundations. Meanwhile our criminal justice system has been corrupted by police departments and prosecutors. On one hand, they set criminals free by manufacturing evidence and bungling prosecutions (e.g. O.J. Simpson). On the other, they zealously pursue charges against those who are innocent of any crimes (as with District Attorney Mike Nifong against the Duke lacrosse players). How often have we heard about people being freed many years after conviction of violent crimes because of a later analysis of DNA evidence? Far too often, the innocent go to prison while the guilty go free, and in both cases, it is due to incompetence by our criminal justice professionals who are more concerned with justifying their jobs than with protecting their communities or pursuing justice. One great concern over this reversal in constitutional liberties is that, rather than protect society, it actually emboldens the real criminals like Timothy McVeigh, the Unabomber and other domestic terrorists who justify their actions with claims that they are defending their constitutional rights. Whatever possessed Chief Scott Kinman and Thomas Dawson to believe an unknown interloper over the word of Locky Bird, one of their own public-spirited residents? At the very least, the police should have nol prossed this case. Instead, they have become an embarrassment to their town, their state and their profession. Hopefully, the inspirational Free Ward Bird effort, with cooperation from Rep. Betsey Patten and Gov. Lynch, can reverse this travesty and succeed in securing a pardon to send Locky Bird back to his home, his farm, his family and his community. Rudy VanVeghten Former Meredith resident


THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, November 27, 2010 — Page 5

LETTERS Expiration of tax cuts at top tier will affect 2% of small businesses To the editor, And Happy Thanksgiving to you too, Mr. Boutin. Thank you for jumpstarting my day with your letter of November 24. By the way, you really ought to get your “Caps Lock” key fixed. It seems to be randomly getting stuck while you type. I do know who won this year’s election. I remember reading about it in this very newspaper. But I didn’t know that also meant that all dissent and argument must end. This is a democracy and if it is going to work then, no matter who happens to be in power at the moment, all sides are supposed to make themselves heard. Sorry, Commandante Antonio, we didn’t go to sleep Election Night and wake up in Havana prison. I also don’t remember you or anyone else taking, or being forced to take, a vow of silence between 2008 and 2010. The whole letter is a leftover turkey, stuffed with the usual non-facts and phony arguments of the corporate interests’ fake “friends of the people” groups. 6-1 opposition to the health reform legislation? No real poll (unless it was the one taken within the Republican House caucus) has ever had those numbers. The most recent polls generally have a roughly 50-50 split. It’s also interesting that in most of those same polls, between a third and 40-percent of those opposed don’t like it because it didn’t go far enough. Sure as sunrise, the next paragraph argues the corporate-sponsored claim that letting the Bush tax cuts expire for the wealthiest 2-percent will hurt small business. Nice grade-A fertilizer. Fact check: letting the top tier tax cuts lapse will affect less than 2-percent of “small businesses.” And guess what? Most of that 2-percent are small businesses only in the loophole language of the IRS. Anyone is considered a small business owner who makes even $1 from business income. George W. Bush was considered a small business owner the year he was in the White House and also made $84 from investments in an oil and gas company. CEO pay for sitting on a corporate board is also considered small business income. Most of those 2-percent are upper-income individuals in corporate practice or who are purely passive investors — not actual

small businesses owners. 98-percent of American small businesses don’t even make enough to be subject to the highest tax rates. What the majority of small businesses want, and need more than tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans, is customers. If people aren’t able to buy their goods or services, they’re not going to be hiring. Next in the letter comes another bogey-man claim: almost half of Americans pay no income tax. Therefore they are not “stakeholders” in the country and are parasites demanding handouts from the rest of us. Well: it’s true that the “bottom” 50-percent pay little or no federal income tax — but that’s only telling half the story. It ignores all the payroll taxes that everyone who has a job pays, as well as all state and local taxes. If you take all taxes into account, the top 1-percent of Americans pay 5-percent of their income, while the bottom 50-percent pay 10-percent. I also wonder if this letter-writer’s outrage extends to corporations who are able to game the system to avoid paying taxes on millions in profits. For instance, GE made $10.8-billion in profits last year, but didn’t pay a dime in corporate taxes. It also got back a “tax benefit” of $1.1-billion. Sorry, but a tax system where the head floor nurse in a hospital pays more taxes than GE, and pays at a higher tax rate than Bill Gates or Warren Buffet, doesn’t pass the smell test. But I guess we do have the best tax code that money can buy. And enough of the garbage that Democrats want an equal pie for all, and don’t want anyone to be able to make money. Democrats aren’t against people getting rich: they’re against those who get rich the Bernie Madoff, the Enron, or the FRM way. The letter concludes with two paragraphs of cliché’s, lazy labels, stereotypes and non-truths. Rather than deal with reality or in facts, it’s far easier (and probably more fun) to just spout slogans. Put a nickel in the old jukebox and play the “Right Wing Rant.” Having an opinion — whatever it is — is important and necessary. Just don’t try to pee on our legs and tell us it’s raining. Ed Allard Laconia

We’re again collecting for Christmas gifts for homeless vets To the editor, Its that time of year again. Winter is just around the corner. Being homeless is a very devastating experience . . . for anyone. At Christmas time is probably the most alone one feels. We are collecting again for Christmas, for Liberty House, NH Homeless Veteran Shelter, located on 75 W.Baker St, Manchester NH 03103. You can send a card to “Holiday Vets at Liberty House” or we will take it with our delivery. We all know winters are very long in N.H. We are in need, all canned goods, winter clothing, boots (size 9-12), socks, new underwear, hats, gloves, scarfs, warm coats, rain gear, pants, longjohns, sweat shirts, blankets, toiletries, and always, “tents, sleeping bags, back packs.” and of course “money.” If you would like to mail a check to Liberty

every dollar collected they can buy $15$20 worth of food from the food pantry. This year, from our collection canisters from Wayne’s Market, Fadden’s Store and Notch Grocery,we collected $990, $130.00 more than last year. “Thank you,” all! Do to the weather, the last delivery for the winter is Dec. 15, weather permitting. If you like to include a gift or a card, we will deliver it as well. There are usually around 10 vets who stay at Liberty House, but many transients come in out of the cold nightly. Drop things off at 47 Bell St., N.Woodstock (745-4725). Here’s wishing the blessings of Christmas for our troops. Pray they come home soon. And the happiest of all holidays for you and yours. Thank you all for what you do. Nancy Leclerc

LETTERS I think both sides have gone a little crazy about airport security To the editor, All week I have been listening to and reading about the controversy swirling around the airport screenings of passengers. So let me get this straight now, it’s the conservatives complaining about the violation of personal rights and affronts to dignity and the liberals telling us to submit to anything in the name of security. Good grief! Personally I think both sides have gone just a little crazy. Seems to me if one side says black the other jumps right to white in some kind of knee jerk reaction. No one seems to be thinking very clearly, which is perhaps the residual effect of 9-11 or the mid-terms. Who knows? It does, however, show just how polarized we have become as a nation. Liberals need to recognize that at times security trumps individual rights and conservatives, like me, must give those rights due consideration before just pushing them aside. Strangely the reversal of expected positions on the current debate points that out. Perhaps something positive can come of it if our “leaders” start thinking more and play less one-ups-manship all the time. If the readers take a moment to

think about it, nothing is as dire as the outraged pundants and commentators make it out to be. The intrusive screenings and optional pat downs are currently the best available option. It can be argued that there are better ways and perhaps that’s so, but for now air travelers need to grit their teeth and suck it up because it still beats a smoking hole in the ground. Now, for the ever so sensitive members of the traveling public, take the train, drive your car. Perhaps somewhat slower but there are no wandering hands playing touchy feeley or the worry of what really happens to those see through images that are suppose to be destroyed but have been rumored to have lived on in some cases. Plus the time perhaps has come for us to rediscover rail travel and give the over congested unfriendly skys a break. The last time I flew, a few years ago, it was a real pain. That was then and if reports are to be even half believed it’s much worse now. Next trip I embark upon I’ll try the train. Steve Earle Hill

Don’t blame Obama for the way we eat, it’s nothing new To the editor, In response to Anna DeRose of Moultonborough: We live in a deepfat fried, sugar-coated, pre-packaged, super-sized society, and that was the case long before Barack Obama ever took the office of President of the United States of America. So to blame him for the sugar-coated crap on store shelves doesn’t seem right. Generations of Americans have suffered from eating disorders: anorexia, obesity and diabetes. Nutrition and health experts have told us for generations to read our labels, and not just for fats and added sugar, but for chemical preservatives and other additives. I put canned corn in shepard’s pie

this week and the ketchup I put on my pie has become the Great American sauce. Health expert Richard Simmons has already gone before Congress to plead for the health and lives of American children, advocating for revamping the nation’s school lunch program and suggesting more extensive health and nutrition educational programs in our public schools. A little education in the present could possibly cut health care costs in the future. So please don’t blame Barack Obama for his inadequacies as president. He’s bringing home the troops. Lori Ann Hayes Laconia

Waiting to see in GOP reps will refuse government health care To the editor, The November election turned the state of New Hampshire into a red state. The voters elected three candidates to represent N.H. in Washington whose pledge was to vote against Obamacare. Democrats are now watching to see if they will refuse paid government health care to cover their families. The news in N.H. is a increase in

health care of 20 to 30-percent this year. I hope state and local officials will have NO on their minds during the budget process. I have always thought the GOP party to be hypocrites. I never thought they would vote fruitcake as their favorite desert. Happy Holidays. Henry Osmer Hill

Hearing to remove Laconia native Peter Hildreth from job starts Monday BY GAIL OBER

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — The hearing to remove city native and embattled N.H. Banking Commissioner Peter Hildreth from his job is scheduled to begin Monday and boasts a veritable Who’s Who of New Hampshire’s political and finance community as potential witnesses. Scheduled to appear either in person or through sworn affidavits and speaking in support of Hildreth are Laconia Savings Bank President Mark Primeau, Franklin Savings Bank President Jeff Savage and a number of other state banking and credit union executives. From the political world, former Governnors Walter Peterson, Steve Merrill and Craig Benson are expected to join County Commissioner-elect John Thomas of Belmont, former candidate for U.S. Senate Ovide Lamontagne, and former N.H. Dept. of Safety Commissioner Dick Flynn. Hildreth, who in his second 7-year term as commissioner, refused to resign at the request of Gov. John Lynch and in the wake of accusations that he could have and should have stopped a Meredith mortgage company before nearly 500 people lost an estimated $80 to $100-million dollars after its sudden collapse under the weight of a giant Ponzi scheme. Financial Resources Mortgage, Inc. and its servicing arm CL&M abruptly shuttered their doors in November of 2009. FRM president Scott Farah and CL&M President Donald Dodge both pleaded guilty to fraud and will be sentenced in U. S. Federal Court, District of New Hampshire in January of 2011. At the heart of Hildreth’s alleged malfeasance is the claim that one of his broth-

ers was an original investor in FRM and that Hildreth knew it and did not properly distance himself from supervision of the company — both when he was the Director of the Bureau of Securities and as Banking Commissioner. In his defense, Hildreth said he recused himself — though he said he was not required to — but admitted not putting is recusal in writing. In the wake of the collapse, Hildreth and former Securities Director Mark Connolly waged a very public and angry finger-pointing campaign against each other, each claiming the others department was responsible for the lack of oversight. Connolly has since resigned and, after more and more information became available, including the records of six Banking Commission audits of FRM that revealed about 75 violations including two that said CL&M was not licensed through the state of New Hampshire to act as a service arm. Connolly is not on either of the witness lists but the Governor’s Executive Council that is seeking Hildreth’s resignation and/or termination included Bureau of Securities Attorneys Jeffrey Spill and Kevin Moquin on its list Also on the Special Counsel’s witness list are Hildreth’s two brothers — Charles and Jon, Hildreth himself, and three of the victims of FRM including Gilford resident Harry Bean whose family lost nearly $4-million by lending through Farah into the private or “hard money” industry. Earlier this week, Merrimack County Superior Court Judge Larry Smukler refused to allow Hildreth attempt to exclude Lynch as a witness against him. He also lost a motion to delay the hearings.

Correction: FSB grant application deadline is Dec. 31

A story that appeared on page 17 of our Friday, Nov. 26 edition about grant funds to be used to help families in need of shelter find permanent and affordable housing contained confusing and inaccurate information. The Dec. 31 deadline (2 p.m.) mentioned in the story is for organizations to apply for grants from the Franklin Savings

Bank Fund For Community Advancement. Inquiries should be directed to Dorothy J. Savery at 934-8316. The focus of the story was on the bank’s donation of $7,500 to the Laconia Area Community Land Trust’s Transitional Shelter Program but the Dec. 31 deadline mentioned has nothing whatever to do with that program.

The Desmonds  of  Sanbornton  (above)  found  a  pet,  a  Labrador  retriever named Daisy on the first day of the New Hampshire Humane Society’s “adopt-a-thon” at the Belknap Mall. Shown here, from left to right, are Susannah, Morgan, Aaron and Tracy Desmond. At right,  Robert and Patricia Ballantyne of Belmont adopted Blizzard, a fivemonth-old cat. The annual event continues today, from 10 a.m. to 3  p.m. (Laconia Daily Sun photo/Adam Drapcho)

ADOPT-A-THON from page one event and had arranged to have 20 dogs transported to the society. Most of the dogs, she said, came from shelters in Alabama or South Carolina and would have likely been euthanized if not for dog adopters in places such as New Hampshire. The New Hampshire Humane Society, Di Maria added, never euthanizes an animal for money, space or time constraints. “All are with us until they find their forever homes,” she said. Most of the animals in the adopt-a-thon will find such a new home before the event ends Saturday. All dogs in the event have been implanted with identifying microchips, while all animals, excepting only the youngest kittens, had been spayed or neutered. Daisy, an eager five month-old female Labrador retriever mix, was one of the lucky ones, having earned the favor of the Desmond family of Sanbornton. Tracy and Susannah, along with their four yearold son Aaron and eight year-old daughter Morgan, came to the event to find a dog to add to their four house cats. Daisy quickly took to the Desmonds, curling up in Susannah’s lap and cleaning Morgan’s

ears as if she’d been a family member for years. Tracy said they had been browsing pets on the Humane Society’s website and decided to take advantage of the event at the mall because of the greater variety of dogs brought north. The adoption process was “very easy, very pleasing, very simple,” he said. Robert and Patricia Ballantyne of Belmont also found a new pet at the mall yesterday, a black five month-old cat named Blizzard. They’d been looking for a new pet, said Patricia, and decided the adopt-athon was the perfect opportunity. “It’s so convenient here for us,” said Patricia. “I wanted my pretty black cat,” added Robert. The adopt-a-thon will continue at the Belknap Mall today, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. TEXTING from page 2 municate. Most prefer texting to e-mail and certainly to talking on the phone, Tindell said. Indeed, most view texting as their right. Almost all the students surveyed by Tindell and Bohlander said they should be allowed to have their phones in class. And a clear majority — 62 percent — said they should be allowed to text in class as long as they’re not disturbing those around them. About one in four said texting creates a distraction. “Students these days are so used to multitasking ... they believe they are able to process information just as effectively when they are texting as when they are not,” Tindell said. Tom Markley, 21, of Lehighton, Pa., is constantly trading texts with his friends and his girlfriend during class. “If it’s a really boring class, texting is a nice alter-


Former Alton fire lieutenant gets more prison time

DOVER — The former Alton firefighter sentenced earlier this month in Belknap County Superior Court after pleading guilty to eight counts of arson, was sentenced to three to 10 years in prison in Strafford County Superior Court last week on charges stemming from three fires in that county. Stark Liedtke, 44, of Alton admitted to setting three fires on Berry Road in New Durham in 2006 and 2007 in addition to the eight acts of arson in Alton, for which has already begun serving his sentence. In addition to imprisonment, Liedtke was ordered to pay $39,000 in restitution to a property owner in New Durham and $625 to the town on top of $300,000 he was ordered to pay in to property owners in Belknap County and $7,000 to the town of Alton. Authorities began investigating Liedtke in March from preceding page

native to having to sit there and focus,” said Markley, a senior computer science major at Wilkes. But, he conceded, “there are definitely times when it takes away from your concentration. Suddenly you’ll be at the end of the period and say, ‘What did we do today?’” Tindell instituted a no-texting policy as a result of the study, which has been presented at a pair of academic conferences. She tells students that if she even sees a cell phone during a test, its owner gets an automatic zero. One Syracuse University professor has taken an even harsher stand. Laurence Thomas, a popular philosophy professor whose courses have waiting lists, walked out on his class of nearly 400 students last week when he caught a couple of students fiddling with their phones instead of paying attention to him. It wasn’t the first time Thomas has cut a class short because a student broke his no-texting rule. To Thomas, texting saps the class of its intellectual energy. “My job is to engage the class, to give them stuff to think about,” he said. “They need to respect that.” While Thomas keeps his eyes peeled for illicit texters, Tindell said most professors are likely as clueless as she used to be about the ubiquity of inclass cell phone use. Many of the surveyed students said their professors would be shocked if they knew about their texting habits. Kautz said most of his professors either don’t notice or don’t care if students text during class time. He doesn’t believe a blanket prohibition is the right way to go. “There are people who can text and still be focused on class,” he said. “If my roommate is short on quarters for laundry and wants to borrow some, of course I’m going to want to text him back right away and not hold him back for 40 minutes.”

following a series of suspicious fires along Route 28 in Alton and New Durham. He was initially arrested and charged for loitering and prowling near the Alton Traffic Circle after a homeowner on Range Road, not far from where an abandoned farmhouse at 117 New Durham Road burned in February, reported a suspicious person. As police searched the area Lt. Richard Vanderhoof saw Liedtke leave Hanniford’s Supermarket, walk past the all the parked vehicles and proceed down Route 28. Questioned by Vanderhoof, Liedtke, whose clothing smelt of gasoline, was unable to explain his presence or movements in the neighborhood. A K-9 unit followed a track from the property on Range Road to wetlands near the supermarket, where plastic bottles filled with gasoline see next page

But he acknowledged that some students text excessively. “I know some people will sit there for the entire class just typing away,” he said. “I don’t even know why they bother coming.” Chelsea Uselding, 20, a Wilkes junior from Chicago, sends an average of 150 texts a day. But she’s the rare student who doesn’t text during class — viewing that hour or two as a “nice break” from the phone and its unceasing demands on her time and attention. There’s also a practical reason why Uselding, a dual major in psychology and international studies, idles her thumbs. “I’m paying all this money to listen to the person speak, and I figure it’s a waste of my time if I’m not going to be listening,” she said. Some high school and college teachers have sought to adapt text messaging to classroom use, texting assignments; asking questions of the class and having students respond via text, with the results shown on a large screen; and allowing students to text questions or comments during class. “Our experience has shown that positive results can be achieved by encouraging students to bring their mobile phones out in the open and to use them to contribute to the class, and to their own learning — that is, by joining them instead of trying to beat them,” New Zealand scholars wrote in a 2009 paper published in the journal Communications of the ACM. Tindell and Bohlander advise professors to have clear, written policies on texting, to circulate around the classroom and make frequent eye contact, and to avoid focusing all their attention on their lecture notes or PowerPoint presentations. Tindell does allow students to text before class starts — and almost all of them do. “If they are going to go through withdrawal,” she quipped, “they might as well get their fix.”

More police reports of incidents at Laconia schools resulting from adherence to new Safe School Act By Gail OBer

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — While school administrators and city police believe in the local district’s proposed notolerance policy toward bullying, both agencies allow the initial application has been time consuming. With the School Board ready vote on its revised official policy on Dec. 21, administrators and police have already begun implementing the portions of the policy required by law. Lt. Christopher Adams of the Laconia Police Department is in charge of record keeping and crime statistics analysis. He said there are two levels of offenses that police and school administrators track — those that are violations of school policy but not necessary criminal and those that are criminal. As an example, drugs and alcohol possession are always reported to the police, generally through the School Resource Officer, because not only do they violate school policy, but because they are against the law. In addition, incidents of vandalism, criminal threatening, and assault are also reported to the police as are reports of theft and unauthorized taking. Adams said in 2009, 62 total criminal violations were reported to police through the Safe School Act (RSA 193-D) and so far this year there have been FIRE from page one was on scene. It turned out that a fire was burning in the three-story, 15-unit apartment building next door. The fire has since been labeled “suspicious” by investigators. Gee had reason to be concerned about the fire. She has friends that live at the building, 180 Union Ave., and her 15 year-old daughter, Kim Moore, was visiting them that night. In fact, it was her daughter who alerted the fire department. “She walked from preceding page were found. The track followed the same path a K-9 traced on the night of the fire a month earlier. Questioned further, Liedtke readily admitted to setting the fire on New Durham Road along with three others as well as attempting to set a fifth. Ultimately he would confess to torching eleven properties in the two counties. Liedtke, a lieutenant and 22-year veteran of the Alton Fire Department, told prosecutors that he first began starting fires as a teenager and said that he was unable to recall the number and whereabouts of all of them. His plea bargain stipulates that he is never again to serve as a firefighter or EMT.

about 40 crimes reported. He said the spike appears to be coming from the middle school but not necessarily because there are more incidents but because school administrators have adopted stricter reporting standards. Both he and School Board member Beth Arsenault said the increase at the middle level is also driven by some uncertainly as to what is an incident and that some of the incidents may be initially overreported. As an example Adams said about two or three weeks ago a couple of unnamed students wrote on one of the middle school doors with a ball-point pen. He said the incident was reported as criminal mischief or vandalism, logged with and investigated by police, but, until this year, would more than likely have been handled at the school level. But while Adams said the new reporting procedures have bumped the work load, he said the police are 100-percent behind the new reporting policies. “If the extra effort can prevent just one kid from being harassed or worse, then the enhanced policies will be a success,” Adams said. Adams said those students who violate the law face the near certainly of being referred to the Belknap County Juvenile Justice Program and for the those who are 17 or older, they are treated as adults in the criminal justice system.

out alongside the building and saw it [the fire]. She called 9-1-1 immediately,” said Gee. She added that she thought the department responded “in a timely manner,” though not everyone at the scene was of the same opinion. “There was no delay in our response,” said Fire Chief Ken Erickson. He said emergency dispatchers notified his department of the fire at 9:21 p.m. and the first crew, led by Lieutenant Chris Shipp, arrived at 9:24 p.m. On his heels was Lieutenant Kirk Beattie, who was off-duty at the time and responded from his home. When they arrived, they were greeted with an array of challenges. Firstly, the building was burning in an enclosed, void space beneath a three-story stairwell, to which there was no immediate access. Secondly, a man was laying on the ground outside the building and in respiratory arrest, apparently due to the inhalation of smoke or other toxins. If that weren’t enough, a crowd of dozens of young people, mostly in their 20s, who confronted the responders and accused them of responding slowly to the fire. “They damn near went after Lieutenant Beattie,” said Erickson. Beattie was attempting to treat the man who literally couldn’t draw a breath, while see next page

UNEMPLOYMENT from page one ers in the city. According to data tabulated by the Department of Employment Security, in the first quarter of this year, the total employment, public and private, in the city reached 8,758. The 533 private employers employed 7,337 people, accounting for 84-percent of total employment while 37 public employers, sixpercent of all employers, employed another 1,420 people, or 16-percent of the workforce. In the private sector, 81 manufacturers employed 1,555 people, or 21-percent of the workforce while 5,783 people, or 79-percent of employment in the private sector, worked in service industries. The average weekly wage in service industries of $682 was 20-percent less than the $852 paid by manufacturers. Weekly wages in the public sector also exceeded those paid by the service sector. Average weekly wages of 119 federal employees were $959, of 303 state employees were $752 and of 1,001 local employees were $688.

Total employment in the Laconia MicroNECTA was 13,699, or 58-percent of the 23,652 public and private sector employees in Belknap County. Beyond the city and four towns of the microNECTA, Tilton with 4,436 jobs — 3,567, or 80-percent of them in the service sector — represented the next largest employment base in the county, accounting for 19-percent of its total employment. However, Tilton also reported the second lowest average weekly wage of the eleven municipalities in the county of $492, reflecting the preponderance of employees in the service sector where weekly wages averaged $448. Barnstead, where 351 employees received average weekly wages of $458, reported the lowest compensation in the county. In the private sector, 183 people employed in manufacturing earned $384 a week while their 33 counterparts in services received $414. Meanwhile, 160 local government employees enjoyed average weekly wages of $522. In Belknap County, government — federal, state see next page

from preceding page the crowd closed in around him, leaned over him and, said Erickson, “yelled at him, what took you so long?... He felt threatened enough by the crowd that he called a police emergency.” In the nine years that Erickson has worked in Laconia, he can recall only one other time when firefighters had to call for emergency assistance from police. The other occurrance was when firefighters walked unknowingly into a violent domestic disturbance. Despite the unruly crowd, Erickson commended his firefighters for stabilizing the patient and delivering him to Lakes Region General Hospital, where he made a full recovery and was released the next day. Firefighters also used chainsaws to cut open an exterior wall of the void space, where they extinguished the fire and kept the damage minimal enough that no residents were displaced. “They did a remarkable amount of work in a short period of time,” said Erickson, who called the evening “a testament to how hard these guys work when the chips are down – I’m very proud of all they did – They put up with a lot of crap and they still do a great job.” Despite their hard work, the people who directly benefitted from the firefighters’ efforts displayed a distinct lack of appreciation, said Erickson. Referring to the crowd of people outside the building, he said, “most of them were very disrespectful with the police and uncooperative with the investigation.” Even the man whose life Beattie saved, said Erickson, “he was unbelievably rude to us in the emer-

gency room.” “It was a bizarre incident scene,” Erickson said. In Erickson’s analysis, the anger of the crowd was a result of a lack of appropriate action from those who first discovered the fire. He believes that there were people who came across the fire before Moore, but unlike her, they didn’t call 9-1-1. Instead, they called friends to have them move their car away from the building, or they called other people in and around the structure. Harry Bean, the owner of the building, agrees with Erickson’s theory. “Everybody was calling everybody else,” Bean said. Bean was asleep when he got his first call of the fire. He got five more calls before he was fully dressed, he said. “I don’t think it took the fire department long at all once they notified that there was a fire – they did an excellent job to make sure nobody got hurt and the building didn’t burn down.” Aside from the unruly crowd and unappreciative respiratory patient, there’s another detail about the fire that sticks in Erickson’s mind. He and other investigators can’t find a natural cause for the fire. There was no reason why a fire should have occurred in the space, which was initially used as a porch but many years ago was closed off when the stairwell was built. The scene investigation has concluded and Erickson said “it remains a suspicious fire – there’s no natural cause.” The investigation, conducted by Deputy Chief Charles Roffo and Laconia Police detectives, continues as witnesses are interviewed. — Adam Drapcho

San Diego drug tunnel had railcar, tons of pot KG & Shaq dominate as

SAN DIEGO (AP) — A sophisticated cross-border tunnel equipped with a rail system, ventilation and fluorescent lighting has been shut down by U.S. and Mexican officials — the second discovery of a major underground drug passage in San Diego this month, authorities said Friday. The tunnel found Thursday is 2,200 feet long — more than seven football fields — and runs from the kitchen of a home in Tijuana, Mexico, to two warehouses in San Diego’s Otay Mesa industrial district, said Mike Unzueta, head of investigations at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in San Diego. In Mexico, the tunnel’s cinderblock-lined entry dropped 80 to 90 feet to a wood-lined floor, Unzueta said. From the U.S. side, there was a stairway leading to a room about 50 feet underground that was full of marijuana. “It’s a lot like how the ancient Egyptians buried the kings and queens,” Unzueta said. Authorities seized more than 20 tons of marijuana. Unzueta said the tunnel discovered Thursday and another found in early November are believed to be the work of Mexico’s Sinaloa cartel, headed by that country’s most-wanted drug lord, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman. from preceding page and local — accounted for 107 or six-percent of all employers while employing 4,648 people, or a fifth of the workforce. In five of the eleven municipalities — Laconia, Alton, Barnstead, Meredith and Tilton — the average weekly earnings of public employees exceeded those of their counterparts in the private sector. However, in each case average compensation in the public sector was skewed by the number of federal employees. Only in Alton, Barnstead, Meredith and Tilton did the average weekly wages of local government employees top that of private sector employees.

“We think ultimately they are controlled by the same overall cartel but that the tunnels were being managed and run independently by different cells operating within the same organization,” Unzueta said. The passage found Thursday is one of the most advanced to date, with an entry shaft in Mexico lined with cinderblocks and a rail system for drugs to be carried on a small cart, Unzueta said. Three men were arrested in the United States, and the Mexican military raided a ranch in Mexico and made five arrests in connection with the tunnel, authorities said. U.S. authorities have discovered more than 125 clandestine tunnels along the Mexican border since the early 1990s, though many were crude and incomplete. U.S. authorities do not know how long the latest tunnel was operating. Unzueta said investigators began to look into several warehouses in June on a tip that emerged from a large bust of marijuana, cocaine and methamphetamine by the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department. U.S. authorities followed a trailer from one of the warehouses to a Border Patrol checkpoint in Temecula, where they seized 27,600 pounds of marijuana. The driver, whose name was not released, was arrested, along with two others who went to a residence in suburban El Cajon that had $13,500 cash inside. “That (trailer) was literally filled top to bottom, front to back,” Unzueta said. “There wasn’t any room for anything else in that tractor-trailer but air.” Three tons of marijuana were found in a “subterranean room” and elsewhere in the tunnel on the U.S. side, authorities said. Mexican officials seized four tons of pot at a ranch in northern Mexico, bringing the total haul to more than 20 tons. The discovery of the cross-border tunnel earlier this month marked one of the largest marijuana seizures in the United States, with agents confiscating 20 tons of marijuana they said was smuggled through the underground passage.

Celtics beat Toronto, 110-101

BOSTON (AP) — The old guys just didn’t forget. Kevin Garnett had 26 points and 11 rebounds, Shaquille O’Neal added 16 points and nine boards, and the Boston Celtics avenged a loss to Toronto by beating the Raptors 110-101 on Friday night. Still smarting after losing to Toronto five days ago, Boston pounded the ball inside to its aging, but very effective stars. “Kevin’s energy tonight was off the charts, and you knew it would be, if you know Kevin, because the last time we played them the guy in his position had a pretty good game,” Boston coach Doc Rivers said. “That’s just Kevin Garnett.” It was the Celtics’ third straight win after they lost consecutive games for the only time this season, the second coming at Toronto when Boston squandered a lead in the closing seconds of a 102-101 defeat on Sunday. Amir Johnson had 17 points and 11 rebounds off the bench in Toronto’s win. On Friday, he was held to 11 points with six boards. “Yeah, (Kevin and I) have this conversation all the time. The young guys can talk,” O’Neal said. “He was actually talking that he was a player.” Glen “Big Baby” Davis had 10 of his 18 points in the final quarter for Boston. Paul Pierce finished with 18 points, Ray Allen 17 and Rajon Rondo collected 14 assists in his first game after missing three straight with a strained left hamstring. Most of Rondo’s dazzling passes led to layups and dunks. Boston outscored the Raptors 64-44 in the paint. “We watched the tape and understand what our advantage is, and that’s what we did,” Pierce said. “We knew we could attack the inside. We were able to go inside against these guys.” Linas Kleiza led Toronto’s balanced scoring with 18 points. The Raptors, which had won four straight, had six players in double figures.

No. 1 Ducks score 5 TDs in Auburn digs out of 24 point hole to beat ‘Bama TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Cam Newton ran crammed into one end of the stadium amid all the a row to beat Arizona, 48-29 around Bryant-Denny Stadium with a hand over crimson, celebrating a win no one could have seen

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Darron Thomas passed for three touchdowns and ran for another and topranked Oregon earned at least a share of a second consecutive Pac-10 title with a 48-29 victory over No. 20 Arizona on Friday night. LaMichael James shrugged off talk of an injury to run for 126 yards and two scores for the Ducks (11-0, 8-0), who trailed 19-14 at halftime but surged in the second half to stay on course for a trip to the BCS national title game. The Ducks can lock up an outright conference title and a spot in the national championship game in Glendale, Ariz., next week with a victory at Oregon State. It was the third straight loss for Arizona (7-4, 4-4), which ultimately couldn’t keep up with the Ducks’ speedy spread-option. With temperatures in the mid-40s and periodic rain showers, there were concerns that the Wildcats would have trouble with their passing game, which had been averaging about 300 yards a game. But Nick Foles passed for a career-high 448 yards and three touchdowns, including an 85-yard score to Juron Criner. Thomas completed 14 of 24 passes for 148 yards and an interception. Oregon finished with 537 yards total offense, but Arizona kept up with 506 yards. Oregon was playing catch-up the entire first half and trailed for just the second time this season at the break. But the Ducks bounced back early in the second half with Josh Huff’s 85-yard scoring run, the longest play from scrimmage for the Ducks this season.

Expecting the Unexpected

his mouth, having hushed up those who might have thought his shot at the national title was done, along with the Heisman Trophy. He’s very much on track for both, thanks to his most audacious performance yet in this season of triumph and controversy. No one had ever rallied a team to victory over Alabama after trailing by 24 points. That’s just what Newton did Friday, leading No. 2 Auburn to a stunning 28-27 triumph that kept the Tigers in the thick of the BCS championship race and might have swayed any Heisman voters who had their doubts about voting for a guy hounded by unsavory allegations. Newton threw for three touchdowns against the ninth-ranked Crimson Tide. He ran for the other score. And a day that started like Auburn might be headed for a staggering blowout ended with No. 2 taking a victory lap around Alabama’s hallowed home field. “Cameron Newton is physically and mentally as tough as I’ve ever seen,” Auburn coach Gene Chizik said. “Period.” When Auburn fell behind 24-0 in the first half, it looked as though all those turned off by the prospect of Newton hoisting the Heisman and national championship trophies after his father was accused of seeking a huge payout might not have to worry about it. Both awards, it seemed, were slipping away. Not so fast. Newton again rallied a team that has trailed in eight of its 12 games, leaving the crowd of 101,821 in disbelief.

coming just a couple of hours earlier: the biggest comeback in school history. Newton had a 1-yard TD run and threw scoring passes of 36 yards to Emory Blake, 70 yards to Terrell Zachery and, finally, a 7-yarder to Philip Lutzenkirchen with 11:55 remaining that gave Auburn its first lead of the day. It held up, keeping the Tigers perfect heading to next week’s Southeastern Conference championship game against South Carolina. If Auburn wins that one, the reward will certainly be a berth in the national title game. “That’s the kind of team we have,” Zachery said. “We never give up.” Auburn (12-0, 8-0 SEC) trailed 21-0 before it even picked up a first down, and Alabama (9-3, 5-3) had a 314-2 lead in total yards when things looked especially grim for the Tigers. Newton’s day started with a rendition of “Take The Money And Run,” blaring over the loudspeakers during pregame warmups, and he got off to a very shaky start along with the entire team.

Energy project financing workshop offered on Thursday

LACONIA — On Thursday, Dec. 2 at 1 p.m., Energy Services Department personnel at Lakes Region Community College will be sponsoring a workshop called “Financing Energy Projects.” The format of the new workshop will be presentations, discussion, and questions. Workshop presenters are Eric Steltzer of the Governor’s Office of Energy and Planning and Clay Mitchell of Revolution Energy, who is also president of the N.H. Sustainable Energy Association. “Often the key to making energy projects work is the financing of those projects,” says LRCC Energy Services Technology Professor Wes Golomb. “It is best when there is little to no cost to the owner. LRCC faculty, staff, and students look forward to having two of the foremost energy experts in the state presenting at the college.” The “Financing Energy Projects” workshop will take place at #216 in the Center for Arts and Technology on Prescott Hill. The public is cordially invited to attend. Contact Golomb at 524-3207 ext. #763 for additional information.

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The pressure is off, and you’re in a good mood. Though you have many things on the agenda, you don’t expect that they will all happen in one day. In fact, you know it won’t happen and plan accordingly. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re a giver, and you always want to do whatever you can to make people smile. However, if you’re too agreeable, you won’t be able to keep all of the commitments you make. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Even if someone rains on your parade, the parade still will go on. That’s one of your wonderful qualities. You go forward in spite of the obstacles and sometimes even because of them. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Though you like to note how things might be improved, keep it to yourself. Otherwise, loved ones might feel criticized or be hurt by the fact that they don’t seem to meet your approval. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You will be the same charming and appreciative person you were yesterday, only today you’ll get noticed for these qualities. Just in the nick of time, too! You were starting to feel taken for granted! TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 27). People have often told you that you are talented. This year, you get financial proof that your gifts are exceptional and useful. People are moved by what you do. You’ll push forward with an idea that will take several months to realize. You’ll cross the finish line in June -- sweet victory! Family celebrates you. Capricorn and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 3, 22, 48 and 17.

Get Fuzzy

HOROSCOPE

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Investigate your options. The thing you want can be purchased for high dollar, or it can be purchased for low dollar. Determine what you want to pay, and you will find it for that price. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It certainly doesn’t hurt to have beauty and brains. However, the thing that’s really pulling people in is that they feel good around you. That is, quite simply, what keeps them coming back for more. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Some people don’t even realize that their selfesteem is something they can improve. In contrast, you’ll be quite aware of how you feel about yourself and will make a conscious effort to raise your selfregard. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll be a master of public image. You’ll bring attention to the desirable parts of your life and will deflect attention away from the aspects that are less pleasing and appealing. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You will be pleasant and selfless, not because you’re trying to get someone to like you but because that’s how you really are. The fact that people do like you is icing on the cake. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You can’t seduce someone who is so selfcentered that he or she will never fall for anyone but the one in the mirror. Think about this as you decide where to put your energy. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll flatter a person you like by mirroring his or her moves and attitude. They will feel at ease with you and will assume the two of you are more alike than you are different.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, November 27, 2010— Page 19

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Saturday, Nov. 27, the 331st day of 2010; with 34 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 27, 1910, New York’s Pennsylvania Station officially opened as it became fully operational with regular through train service from the Pennsylvania Railroad. On this date: In 1701, astronomer Anders Celsius, inventor of the Celsius temperature scale, was born in Uppsala, Sweden. In 1901, the U.S. Army War College was established in Washington, D.C. In 1909, author, poet and critic James Agee was born in Knoxville, Tenn. In 1939, the play “Key Largo,” by Maxwell Anderson, opened at the Ethel Barrymore Theater in New York. In 1942, during World War II, the French navy at Toulon (too-LOHN’) scuttled its ships and submarines to keep them out of the hands of German troops. In 1953, playwright Eugene O’Neill died in Boston at age 65. In 1970, Pope Paul VI, visiting the Philippines, was slightly wounded at the Manila airport by a dagger-wielding Bolivian painter disguised as a priest. In 1978, San Francisco Mayor George Moscone (mahs-KOH’-nee) and City Supervisor Harvey Milk, a gay-rights activist, were shot to death inside City Hall by former supervisor Dan White. In 1983, 181 people were killed when a Colombian Avianca Airlines Boeing 747 crashed near Madrid’s Barajas airport. In 1989, a bomb blamed on drug traffickers destroyed a Colombian Avianca Boeing 727, killing all 107 people on board and three people on the ground. One year ago: Tiger Woods crashed his SUV outside his Florida mansion, sparking widespread attention to reports of marital infidelity. Former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton announced daughter Chelsea’s engagement to longtime boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky. Space shuttle Atlantis and its seven astronauts returned from the International Space Station with a smooth touchdown. Today’s Birthdays: Actor James Avery is 62. Academy Award-winning director Kathryn Bigelow (Film: “The Hurt Locker”) is 59. TV host Bill Nye (“Bill Nye, the Science Guy”) is 55. Actor William Fichtner (FIHK’-nuhr) is 54. Caroline Kennedy is 53. Academy Awardwinning screenwriter Callie Khouri (Film: “Thelma and Louise”) is 53. Rock musician Charlie Burchill (Simple Minds) is 51. Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty is 50. Rock musician Charlie Benante (Anthrax) is 48. Rock musician Mike Bordin (Faith No More) is 48. Actor Fisher Stevens is 47. Actress Robin Givens is 46. Actor Michael Vartan is 42. Rapper Skoob (DAS EFX) is 40. Actor Kirk Acevedo is 39. Rapper Twista is 38. Actor Jaleel White is 34. Actress Alison Pill is 25.

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Dear Annie: Four of my five siblings and their partners are tremendously overweight. Two of my sisters claim to have the “family fat genes.” I don’t believe such nonsense. I love my siblings dearly, but sadly, their children are now “blossoming” into overweight adults and a few have children of their own who are getting pudgy. I live in another state, and when I visit them, I find it especially difficult to eat well and get enough exercise. My weight has been a struggle, and I am a lifetime member of Weight Watchers. I see the effort to maintain my weight as essential to my health. But the few times I have raised the subject, my siblings either refuse to talk about it or laugh it off, saying, “I enjoy eating and don’t want to outlive my retirement.” I know I am blessed to have the support of my spouse in my weight loss journey. My siblings are not so fortunate. When I visit, I sometimes suggest healthier meal options and a walk after dinner, but those things have little effect when coupled with a family barbecue complete with high-fat, high-calorie foods and multiple sugary desserts, not to mention hours of sitting in front of the TV. I know that obesity is a complex issue. I know they have to want to change. But I am terribly worried about their health. Is there anything I can say or do to encourage them? -- Concerned Sibling and Auntie Dear Auntie: Research indicates there truly are “fat genes” -- genetic markers that show an increased likelihood of obesity. However, those are the very people who must work harder to exercise regularly and watch their diet in order to stay healthy. You have done this, but your siblings have found it too overwhelming. All you can do is model healthier alternatives and periodically talk to each one individually, letting them know how much you love them, and that you will be supportive and helpful whenever they are ready.

Dear Annie: I think you give great advice and hope you can help me. “Frank and Laura” are two people I am not friends with anymore. I have told this to them on previous occasions, yet they somehow refuse to accept it. Lately, they have been visiting my home without calling and expect to come in and be entertained. They always seem to show up during dinner, and I know they expect us to serve them whatever we are having. I don’t know if they are being stubborn, but I want to make it clear in a delicate but firm way that the visits must stop. -- Confused Dear Confused: Is it possible that Frank and Laura are having financial troubles and appreciate a free meal? If so, it would be a kindness to continue. Otherwise, you need to be more forceful. When they ring the bell, tell them it’s not a good time to visit, and don’t let them past the front door. You might have to say it more than once, and there may come a point where you have to shut the door on them, but it’s the only way to get your point across in a way they will understand. Dear Annie: I am writing in response to “Concerned Mom in Pennsylvania,” who has a blind 18-year-old son. I, too, am legally blind. Using resources like the California State Department of Rehabilitation, I was able to go to college and get the accommodations I needed to be successful. I am now a practicing psychotherapist. My county has a program that provides cab rides for disabled persons and seniors for only 15 percent of the normal fare. One of the most important life-changing resources is my dog. I acquired her at no cost through Guide Dogs for the Blind of San Rafael, Calif. She has transformed my sense of isolation to one of empowerment and connection. -- Finding Light in California Dear Finding: Thank you for the excellent suggestions.

Lakes Region Real Estate Market Report / Roy Sanborn

iPhones, iPads & iBodes Okay, so the holiday shopping season starts off with Black Friday and now we have Cyber-Monday to boot! Crazy people are up at 4 a.m. running around the stores in the Lakes Region trying to find that special item to buy before they are all gone. I’m not sure which are the hottest items but I am sure there will be plenty of iPods, iPads, iPhones, flat screens, Xboxes, Wiis, Kindles (and some candles), Nooks, Droids, Blackberries, digital this and digital that sold over the next week. But the big thing is everyone wants to buy something at bargain basement prices. Everyone wants a deal, a steal, something on sale at 25-50-percent off, a deep discount, or a big bargain. So let’s try and sell some homes on Cyber-Monday at a bargain basement prices, too! Oh, that’s right, I forgot. They have been at bargain basement prices for some time. You just need someone to point them out? Right? Well, maybe we just need to have a different marketing approach when selling homes. After all, I don’t think they would sell as many Wiis if they had called it a Woo, Wee-Wee, or Waa. Who would have thought to market a phone as a Blackberry or Droid? But, that worked and they are selling by the millions! Calling a place to live in just a plain old “house” or “home” doesn’t have marketing flair. Maybe a new,

exciting name for these already deeply discounted homes might excite buyers. So, I thought given the name recognition of the iPhone it would be a good idea to combine it with “abode” to make iBode! The “iBode” will no doubt attract considerable attention in the marketplace this holiday season as the hottest new gift offered at bargain basement prices! Just think, we can offer iBodes while they last at 35-percent or more off retail pricing! Who wouldn’t want one? Well, here are a few iBodes to ponder that have been reduced in price significantly since they were first listed. I’m not saying that these are real deals — just that the price has been reduced by quite a bit indicating that, well, just maybe the owner wants to actually sell his iBode. First up is an iBode at 126 Washington Street in Laconia. This is a turn of the century iBode Patriot model with 2,109-square-feet of living space, three bedrooms, two full baths and a one car garage on just about an acre of land close to Bond Beach. The price started at $235,000 and they are down to $133,000 and it is a short sale. That’s 57-percent of the original asking price! Put a sale price tag on that at the outlet malls and it would be gone. I am not saying that the $235,000 original price was correct but at the time they listed it was

assessed at $230,6000 so it was probably fair. The current assessment is lower (like everyone else’s) at $151,600 but this seems like a potential bargain with some up side. Over at 44 Jackson Street in Laconia there is an affordable 1,277-square-foot, two bedroom (which could be converted back to three), one bath iBode Intro model that is on the market for $110,000. It was originally offered at $154,900 and it was assessed for $161,500 but that was adjusted down to $110,500 so you know the asking price is right on. At 46 Pine Street in Laconia there is a 2,856-square-foot, 4 bedroom 1 ½ bath iBode Patriot model that was originally offered at $189,900 which has been reduced to $139,900 as a short sale. This solid iBode has fantastic woodwork, pocket doors, tin ceilings, stained glass, upgraded systems, and a fantastic Jacuzzi room above the heated garage. The current tax assessment of $217,000 makes this property one of those steals that you get up at 3 a.m. for. There is a brand new model, the iBode Contempo, at 3 Sun Lake Drive in Belmont which was originally offered at $529,000 and has been reduced to $349,000. That kind of sounds like a bargain, but you have to remember, sometimes new models of the iBode have to have the bugs worked out. There always seems to be a glitch somewhere. But this 2,990-square-foot iBode has four bedrooms, three baths, a nice open floor plan with hardwood and tile floors, a screened porch, two car garage, and views of Winnisquam. The seller is “motivated” and this one is offered at a “Blow Out” price. It says so right on see next page

Kids will treated to penquin-themed exhibition at Laconia’s Goss Reading Room during December LACONIA — Friends of the Goss Reading Room on Elm Street, a branch of the Laconia Public Library, are offering their first children’s program, “Parade of Penguins”. Youngsters parading to the Goss during the month of December will be treated to Kirk Dougal’s collection of penguins. Along with Dougal’s extensive exhibit of penguins — brass, wood, ceramic, stuffed, great and small — each child will receive penguin gifts while the supply lasts. When asked how the collection started, Dougal answered, “It all started when I was 13. I was pumping gas at Irwin’s where my father worked and answered the phone. It was the very famous Admiral Richard E. Byrd calling his friend, Jim Irwin. That led me to find out more about him, so I went to the library and read a book written by Paul Rink,

“Alone in the Antarctic”. It was an exciting tale about Byrd’s second polar expedition in 1934, the year I was born, and how he lived alone in Antarctica and nearly died. This led into my interest in penguins. People started giving me penguins and my collection just grew over the decades. My favorite one won’t be on display. That is a tiny lapel pin my mother had made for me. When she went to the jeweler’s to pick it up, she fell and broke her shoulder.” Visit the Goss on Tuesdays or Thursdays from noon to 5 p.m. It’s that historic little library up on the knoll at 188 Elm Street, just beyond the end of the bridge; it’s been serving readers for over a century. Friends of the Goss are planning more programs for adults and children. Anyone interested in being a “Friend” or sharing an idea, please call 524-7683.
