Saloon remains said illegally buried next door BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — The Wide Open Saloon has not only been razed to the ground, but allegedly buried under it at the southern corner of the adjacent lot that houses the Weirs Beach Drive-In Theater in violation of state law.
Jim Martin, public information officer of the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (DES) , said yesterday that officials of the agency, acting on information from undisclosed sources, visited the recently excavated site last week and found a significant amount of construction debris, left from the demolition of the Wide
Open Saloon. He added that members of the Spill Response and Complaint Investigation Section met with the owner of the Wide Open Saloon, Brandi Baldi, the principal of 38 Endicott Street North, LLC, and her husband Larry, who admitted to having buried remains of the building on the site see WIDE OPEN page 16

LACONIA — Today is election day and presumably most voters have made up their minds as to which candidates deserve their vote. But while political candidacies never have been for the faint of heart, there are some, many who are involved in the New Hampshire Senate District 7 race, who feel new political bottoms have been reached on both sides. see SENATE 7 page 18

POINT PLEASANT BEACH, N.J. (AP) — A week after Superstorm Sandy pummeled the East Coast, wiping out entire communities, residents were bracing for yet another potentially damaging storm. A nor’easter taking shape Monday in the Gulf of Mexico was expected to begin its march up the coast, eventually passing within 50 to 100 miles of the wounded New Jersey coastline on Wednesday. The storm was expected to bring winds of up to 55 mph, coastal flooding, up to 2 inches of rain along the shore, and several inches of snow to Pennsylvania and New York. One of the biggest fears was that the storm could bring renewed flooding to parts of the shore where Sandy wiped out natural beach defenses and protective dunes. “It’s going to impact many areas that were devastated by Sandy,” said Bruce Terry, the lead forecaster for the National Weather Ser-

No rest for Obama & Romney in campaign’s final hours COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The White House the prize, President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney raced through a final full day of campaigning on Monday through Ohio and other battleground states holding the keys to victory in a tight race. Both promised brighter days ahead for a nation still struggling with a sluggish economy and high joblessness. “Our work is not done yet,” Obama told a cheering crowd of nearly 20,000 in chilly Madison, Wis., imploring his audience to give him another four years. Romney projected optimism as he neared the end of his six-year quest for the presidency. “If you believe we can do better. If you believe America should be on a better course. If you’re tired of being tired ... then I ask you to vote for real change,” he said in a Virginia suburb of the nation’s capital. With many of the late polls in key states tilting slightly against him, he decided to campaign on Election Day in Ohio and Pennsylvania, where he and Republicans made a big, late push. The presidency aside, there are 33 Senate seats on the ballot Tuesday, and according to one Republican official, a growing sense of resignation among his party’s rank and file that Democrats will hold their majority. The situation was reversed in the House, where Democrats made no claims they were on the verge of victory in pursuit of the 25 seats they need to gain control. National opinion polls in the presidential race made the popular vote a virtual tie. In state-by-state surveys, it appeared Obama held small advantages in Nevada,

Ohio, Iowa and Wisconsin — enough to deliver a second term if they endured, but not so significant that they could withstand an Election Day surge by Romney supporters. Both men appealed to an ever smaller universe of undecided voters. More than 30 million absentee or early ballots have been cast, including in excess of 3 million in Florida. The state also had a legal controversy, in the form of a Democratic lawsuit seeking an extension of time for pre-Election Day voting. There were other concerns, logistical rather than legal. Officials in one part of New Jersey delivered voting equipment to emergency shelters so voters displaced by Superstorm Sandy last week could cast ballots. New York City made arrangements for shuttle buses to provide transportation for some in hard-hit areas unable to reach their polling places. Judging from the long early voting lines in some places and the comments made in others, the voters were more than ready to have their say. “I watch the news all the time, and I am ready for it to be over,” said Jennifer Walker, 38, of Columbus, Ohio, who said she took time off from work to attend the president’s speech during the day in a show of support. “I feel like he is getting better with the economy. I don’t think it’s hopeless. It takes time.” But Bryan Dobes, 21, a University of Iowa student from suburban Chicago, voted for Romney on Monday and said unemployment and spending have been

too high under Obama. “He promised a lot of hope and change, and I’m not seeing it,” he said of the president. “No retreat, no surrender,” sang rock icon Bruce Springsteen, warming up Obama’s crowd on a frosty morning outside the State Capitol in Madison, Wis. The Boss then boarded Air Force One for his first flight. “Pretty cool,” he judged it. Romney had Kid Rock and the Marshall Tucker Band in the wings for his late appearances in Ohio and New Hampshire. “This is it,” the challenger said in a lastminute emailed request for campaign donations. “I will lead us out of this economic crisis by implementing pro-growth policies that will create 12 million new jobs. With your help, I will deliver real change and a real recovery. America will be strong again.” In his longest campaign day, Romney raced from Florida to a pair of speeches in Virginia to Ohio and then an election eve rally in New Hampshire. Obama selected Wisconsin, Ohio and Iowa for his final campaign day, an itinerary that reflected his campaign’s decision to try and erect a Midwestern firewall against Romney’s challenge. Vice President Joe Biden and Republican running mate Paul Ryan of Wisconsin went through their final campaign paces, as well. In Sterling, Va., not far from Washington, the vice president accused Republicans of running away from their record, but added, “a leopard can’t change his spots.”

Community College breaks ground on $6.4M Health & Science Building BY ROGER AMSDEN FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — Ground was broken Monday morning at Lakes Region Community College for the school’s new 21,800-square-foot, $6.4 million Health and Science Academic Building. LRCC President Dr. Scott Kalicki said that the new facility is the second phase of an expansion of the college, the first of which saw a new academic building completed in 2005. He said that work will begin immediately on the new building and that there is ‘’a very ambitious schedule’’ which will see it completed by the start of the next academic year. Tom Goulette, LRCC vice president for Academic Affairs, who has been working on plans for the new building for the last three years, said the two-story building will have 12 classrooms and a 140-seat miniauditorium and four new state of the art chemistry labs as well as biology and physical science labs, two new Fire Science labs as well as faculty offices. ‘’This will help LRCC’s nursing students prepare for the future,’’ said Goulette, who credited Tom Clairmont, president and CEO of LRGHealthcare, for the partnership which the college has developed in nursing and health care programs. Ross Gittell, chancellor of the Community College System of N.H., said that the new building shows that the college system is responsive to the needs of local industry, like LRGHealthcare, and noted that since 2003 the nursing program at LRCC has tripled in the number of students it serves and that science programs have quadrupled during that time. “This project is about adding capacity for training in high-need fields in health care and the physical sciences, modernizing instructional facilities for important programs like fire protection, and continuing the strong partnerships between the community college and NH industry in support of job creation and the development of a highly-skilled local workforce,” Gittell said.
Lakes Region Community College (LRCC) broke ground on a new $6.4 million Health and Science Academic Building Monday morning. Taking part were State Rep. Alida Millham, (R-Gilford); Larissa Baia, LRCC vice president for student services and enrollment; Sate Sen. Jeanie Forrester, (R-Meredith); Scott Myers, Laconia city manager; Tom Goulette, LRCC vice president for academic affairs; Paul Lowendowski, SMRT architect; Allen Coen, chairman of LRCC’s Fire Technology Program; Dr. Sott Kaliicki, LRCC president; Alice Mowery, LRCC’s chief ﬁnancial ofﬁcer; Dr. Ross Gittell, chancellor of the Community College System of NH; Jim Kimball of Bonnette, Page and Stone; Michael Seymour, mayor of Laconia and Randy Remick, president of Bonnette, Page and Stone. (Roger Amsden/for The Laconia Daily Sun)
He praised LRCC’s Kalicki for becoming a leader in the state’s community college system through programs like nursing and energy management. Budget for the project is $5,550,000, not including
design and fit up. The project design was completed by SMRT Inc., of Portland Maine and Bonnette, Page & Stone of Laconia is construction manager for the project.

Meredith tax rate dips 3 cents By Michael Kitch
MEREDITH — At a workshop yesterday, Brenda Vittner, director of Administrative Services, told the selectmen that the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration (DRA) has set the 2012 property tax rate at $12.62 per $1,000 of assessed value, a decrease of three cents. The town portion of the tax rate rose from $4.16 to $4.20 and the county tax climbed a nickel from $.32 to $1.37 while the local school tax dropped 11 cents from $4.87 to $4.76 and the state education tax slipped a penny from $2.30 to $2.29. Vittner said that she initially calculated the town tax to rise six cents, but DRA added revenue in the form of payments in lieu that were reported to the agency but not to the town, which trimmed the increase by two cents. She said that revenues also included $725,000 drawn from the undesignated fund balance , which matches the amounts used to stabilize the tax rate for the past four years. The total undesignated fund represents at least 7.25-percent of gross appropriations, meeting the guideline set by the board in 2008 (rainy day fund). Town Manager Phil Warren advised the selectmen that the 2103 budget promises to be “one of the most chal-
lenging” of his tenure and advised them to expect increased expenditures to meet urgent needs. He said some $300,000 worth of projects, mostly roadworks, were deferred this year to control expenditures and employers contributions to the New Hampshire Retirement System increased significantly. The board scheduled three budget workshops on November 26, 27 and 28, beginning at 4 p.m. at the Town Hall Annex. NOTE: The Board of Selectmen unanimously agreed to hold a public hearing on a controversial proposal to tighten the regulation of septic systems in the Lake Waukewan watershed on December 3. Town Manager Phil Warren assured the board the schedule afforded sufficient time to notify all interested parties and receive the comments of town counsel. Eric Furst warned the selectmen that many property owners who would be affected by the ordinance would be unable to attend the hearing. However, he was told that anyone unable to appear in person would be invited to submit their comments in writing. The public hearing is the first to be scheduled since the Waukewan Watershed Advisory Committee first recommended the ordinance to the selectboard in 2010.
NORTHFIELD — Police said a woman accidentally stabbed her boyfriend in the leg when the two were apparently playing with a knife he had just bought. According to Chief Stephen Adams, the Park Street man had just bought a Bowie knife from Walmart and was letting his girlfriend look at it when he tripped and fell into the knife.
Adams said the man had a cut on his thigh that was about one-half inch deep and about one inch long. He said the man was taken by ambulance to Franklin Regional Hospital where he was treated and released. Police said the incident was not criminal in nature and no further investigation is needed. — Gail Ober
CONCORD (AP) — Police have arrested a New Hampshire man on charges that he robbed a couple outside of a Concord hotel. Police arrested 28-year-old Cory Porter of Concord on Monday, with the help of the U.S. Marshal’s Service. Porter also was
charged with conspiracy and criminal threatening with a deadly weapon. Police said Porter was arrested in connection with an armed robbery that took place on Oct. 11 in front of the Residence Inn. Three others had been arrested previously.

An Apology from the Editor I make it a point to print every letter I receive that meets a basic standard of appropriateness. During election seasons, that has proven to be more and more difficult and I have now officially met my match. Last week, I printed a record 130 of your letters — but it was not near enough. Dozens and dozens of election-related letters have not been published and now, won’t be. There just isn’t enough time or space. To those of you who took the time to write letters that weren’t published, I apologize. — The Editor
LETTERS I ask that today you consider rejection of Question #2 To the editor, On November 6, 2012, Question #2 (CACR 26): Proposed Amendment, which authorizes “The legislature shall have concurrent power to regulate the same matters by statute. In the event of a conflict between a statue and a court rule, the statute, if not otherwise contrary to this constitution, shall prevail over the rule,” is being considered. I would like to incite to our citizens that Question #2 is a substantial step to undoing the work of our framers’ Constitutional construct for our government and, particularly, our judicial system. Our founding fathers, be it pursuant to the Federal Constitution or in our State Constitution, confirmed their steadfast belief that an independent and objective judicatory was the central premise of our judicial system. Our founding fathers in the State’s Constitution designed the blueprint for our government as three independent branches — the legislative, the executive, and the judicial. They deemed the relationship among the branches to be one of checks and balances. That very system of checks and bal-
ances is under attack if the proposed amendment #2 is adopted. The Judiciary is not without oversight by either of the branches of government. The Executive defines the membership of the court; and the Legislature continues to oversee the Judiciary’s budgeting which lays the foundation for the operation of the judiciary. The Legislature continues to retain other civil remedies to other concerns of the Legislature over the operation of the Judicial branch without the approval of Question #2. The 200 plus years of this system of three independent branches with a corresponding system of checks and balances was to ensure the independence and objectivity of the Judiciary. On November 6, 2012, I will be voting no on Question #2. I am doing so because I am deeply committed to preserving the Judiciary’s objectivity, and I confidently believe that independence preserves the freedoms of all our citizens. I ask your consideration of rejection of Question #2. Judge James M. Carrol Presiding Justice of the 4th Circuit Court in Laconia
Today’s GOP is heavily influenced by Tea Party & Free Staters To the editor, To the Voters of Gilford and Meredith: As an educator and parent, I am very concerned about the upcoming elections. The four Republican candidates on the ballot want to help Speaker O’Brien continue his attack on education, civil rights, woman’s rights, and all that we, as residents of New Hampshire, value so greatly. This is not your father’s Republican party anymore but a group who are heavily influenced by the Tea Party and Free State Project. These individuals vying for the four seats in the N.H. House of Representatives are: Kevin Leandro, a Gilford resident who unsuccessfully sued the Gilford School District last year and cost the taxpayers over $10,000 in legal fees, Herb Vadney, another “fiscal conservative” who wants to
join Speaker O’Brien’s brigade, Bob Greemore and Colette Worsman, both incumbents who have been supporters of O’Brien’s agenda. In September’s primary, a good number of Republicans who had the guts to stand up to Speaker O’Brien lost in the primaries to individuals who are not true Republicans, but Tea Partiers and Free Staters. I strongly suggest that voters of Gilford and Meredith vote for the Democratic candidates who have made a commitment to public education, safety and citizens’ rights . Please consider voting for Lisa DiMartino, Sandy Mucci, Bill Johnson, and Kate Miller. I know I will now come under attack and be called all types of names for speaking my opinion, but . . . it is my opinion! Joe Wernig Gilford
I object to I-L School Board tag being used in partisan letter To the editor, I was concerned to see that Lisa Merrill, in her last letter to the editor endorsing Bob Lamb for N.H. State Senate District 2, signed the letter as an Inter-Lakes School Board member, implying that the I-L School Board is endorsing Democrat candidate Lamb. Ethics and the N.H. School Board Association both indicate that public officials are supposed to leave their personal agendas at home.
Also as a member of the I-L School Board, I would like to say that Lisa Merrill only expresses the opinions of herself. The seeming distortion of Jeanie Forrester’s record on education, written under the guise of the I-L School Board, is an insult to the voters, who are all smart enough to figure out their own voting preferences. Carol Baggaley Center Harbor
LETTERS ‘Welcome to Republican Country’ sign insults many & divides us To the editor, On Sunday, at the intersection of Routes 3 and 25 in Meredith, candidates Jeanie Forrester and Colette Worsman stood with a sign that read “Welcome to Republican country”. Displaying signs supporting one’s candidates or positions is universally accepted, but signs asserting that this country is of one particular persuasion is exactly what divides us as it shuns the majority of citizens. This is every citizen’s country — whether you are an independent, a Democrat, a Republican, a Libertarian or a member of the Green Party. A sign like that helps to explain why the Republicans have refused to work with the rest of Congress in DC and why the state of N.H. has been taken in such an extreme direction by our current Legislature. As so many of the elected Republicans in the national and N.H. Legislature have demonstrated and publicly stated, it is either their way
or no way. The facts, based on Gallup data from polling taken Sept. 24 - 27, 2012, are: U.S. citizens claim party afflication as: Independent 38 percent, Democrat 32 percent and Republican 28 percent. The Independents polled were asked how they lean — based on their replies the U.S. breakdown is Democratic 50 percent and Republican 43 percent. This may not be printed until after the election, if so let’s hope we have elected candidates who recognize and embrace the fact that there is great diversity in our country. Let’s hope we have elected candidates who are willing to work to unify and not divide, who are willing to represent all of the citizens and not just those with their same party affiliation. Denise Doyle, Secretary The Meredith and Center Harbor Democratic Committee
Ms. Taylor had perfect opportunity to ask Sen. Forrester questions To the editor, As Jeanie Forrester’s field intern, I have travelled with her for most of the campaign. Driving her while she knocked on hundreds and hundreds of doors, attending forums, parades, meetings, since April of this past year. So I was surprised to read a letter to the editor from Fran Taylor of Holderness wanting to know when she’ll get to ask Jeanie questions — especially since just recently Ms. Taylor sat two chairs away from Jeanie during Councilor Burton’s visit to Holderness to
give an update on the Medicaid Managed Care program for N.H.. There was ample opportunity for Ms. Taylor to ask questions of Senator Forrester, yet she did not. And contrary to claims otherwise, Jeanie has appeared at seven forums with Bob Lamb. As a young adult, I appreciate how Jeanie has conducted her campaign — it has been positive and fact-based and, of course, I will be voting for Jeanie. Addie Johnson Campton
Ask how the state budget was balanced and you will be amazed To the editor, I express my deepest concern for this state and the nation. This election has had the greatest word manipulations ever heard. One side claims one thing and the other side claims another. Both are not lying, they are just using words for the own purpose. The only way to overcome these differences is for you, the voter, to look into just what is said and then find out what is actually occurring. Both sides are claiming a balanced state budget, which is true, but ask
you will be amazed. There is a TV add that one candidate balanced the budget and did not vote for any new taxes. True, but check the word new and then find out that over 33 additions to existing taxes and fees were voted for. The budget referred to was the most unbelievable manipulations of numbers any accountant could ever find. Please look into the facts before you vote. Thank you and please vote. Bill Tobin Sanbornton

To the editor, It was so great to get a reply from Mr. Stewart, where he continues to show how “out of touch” he is with the governing bodies in Gilford — and especially when he was a past member of the Budget Committee. Similar to your earlier reply, you say that I “bend with the political wind”. Perhaps you did not read my earlier reply as I appreciated that you made a point for me. Evidently, your political view is that you should come up with a thought and attempt to force it down the throats of the voters as you think it’s the right thing to do. Perhaps, I’ll have to make you aware that it’s the job of a selectman to represent the people of Gilford. I want to vote for what they say, not what I say — I work at listening to the will of the people of Gilford and vote accordingly. You mention that I vote with the bureaucrats relative to school spending. Guess what, as a selectman, I DON’T HAVE ANY VOTE CONCERNING THE SCHOOLS! Think
about it — the School Committee has everything to say concerning the school budget. If you could remember correctly, there is a separate budget and a separate deliberative session JUST FOR THE SCHOOL BUDGET! I do go to the session but as a voter not a selectman. Additionally, the default budget containing the “many” contracts you mention have mostly to do with the schools. We do have two union contracts involved in the town budget and one for the town administrator. Another reminder and perhaps it’s not your idea, but unions do have a right to form, leaving one contract for the TA. That’s “many”? And lastly, you mention that you have met with Mr. Leandro on several occasions. And you send in a letter to the editor supporting him? Wow, evidently you’re an easy one to convince. John T.

I’m proud of my mom & know she’ll be voice for all constituents To the editor, I am writing this letter in support of my mother, Jane Cormier for the N.H. House of Representatives Belknap District 8. My mom is running because she is very concerned with the future of my generation. With debt and costs rising, it is clear to all who are paying attention, our nation is in trouble. And unless we get our finances in order, we are not going to be able to have the same freedoms my mother enjoyed in her youth. My mom doesn’t want that to happen to my brother and I or to the rest of our generation Right now, everything we buy from food to gas to health care, costs almost double what we paid foury ears ago. Families now earn $4,000 less per household and college tuition is
more than I can even afford to pay. These are FACTS and they need SOLUTIONS. My mom (as do other conservative Republicans) understands we need to stop spending money we don’t have, live within our means as a state and nation, and assist businesses in N.H. in getting back to work. A vote for Jane Cormier is a vote for solutions, not mean spirited rhetoric. I am proud of my mom and know she will be a true voice for ALL her constituents. She has acan-do attitude and gives 100-percent of herself to what she undertakes. We both love our “Live Free or Die” state. That is why I ask you to vote for Jane Cormier in Belknap District 8 on Nov. 6. Catherine Martinez Alton

Cut spending by $800M or raise taxes by same amount: would you call that a deficit? Starting in 2008, the governor and Legislature adopted a series of unusual practices that obscured spending decisions. As a result, the two gubernatorial candidates this year fight over what the facts really are. Republican Ovide Lamontagne claims that Democrat Maggie Hassan raised spending when she was Senate majority leader and left the state with an $800 million deficit. She claims she balanced the budget and spending went down. A careful look behind the curtain shows that significant spending increases without the money to pay for them caused a huge deficit and that forced the most recent Legislature to pass a significant correction. The source of the problem is a series of very unusual measures that hid some spending, relabeled other spending and made apples-to-apples comparisons difficult. During the recession and its aftermath, the state didn’t have the revenues to support the amount of money it wanted to spend. Rather than reducing spending, the state borrowed money to support regular spending. The state used to pay for school building aid (not the building itself, but state support of local annual debt service payments) out of its general operating fund. But from 2008 through 2010, we paid with borrowed money. In addition, we borrowed money to pay for a year’s worth of regular debt service payments. Under the state’s accounting system, because these expenditures ($170 million over three years) were paid for with borrowed money instead of taxes, they don’t show up as generalfund spending. That is not a spending cut, but if you did not know how our budget works you might be misled into thinking it was. Similarly, the budget for 2010 and 2011 included large payments from the federal government for state fiscal stabilization. These were essentially one-time windfalls to bail out state spending. Because the money used for some general operating expenses came from Washington, it was not counted as state general or education-fund spending. If you didn’t understand how our budget works, you might be misled into thinking it was a $167 million spending cut. Thirdly, the 2010-11 budget renamed spending on the liquor commission as liquor-fund spending, moving it out of the general fund. Again, if you didn’t under-
stand how our budget works, you might be misled into thinking that $90 million was cut. It was not; it was relabeled. An apples-to-apples comparison is easy if you add the comparable lines back in. Doing so, we find that the 2010-11 budget was 14.2 percent higher than two budgets prior — definitely not a cut. The unusual shifting around also explains why critics like to say that the budget from all funds (including highways, turnpikes, dedicated funds and all federal money) increased 24 percent since 2008. That 24 percent is based on budgeted rather than actual amounts because of some different rules, but the actual spending is at least 21 percent higher, with some spending authority not lapsing. The fiscal gimmicks and the need for more borrowed money also explain why state general obligation debt increased by 43 percent over those same four years after having increased by only 8 percent in the prior four years and 4 percent in the four years prior to that. As a state, we borrowed a lot of money officially and used federal borrowed money to prop up spending that we formerly paid for for with state taxes. That created a deficit. Budget observers right and left all agreed that because of the unusual measures — whether you supported them or not — the Legislature’s budget in 2011 faced a structural deficit of $800 million. In New Hampshire terms, that means that the state would have to decrease spending or increase revenues by $800 million to balance the budget. The previous years had been balanced by the legislative tricks, but the borrowing and the bailouts would disappear from the next budget, creating an $800 million hole the next Legislature would have to close. Regardless of whether you supported those unusual budgetary measures, it is unquestionably true that we used unprecedented borrowing and bailouts to delay some decisions and create an $800 million problem that had to be fixed (and was fixed by the current Legislature through spending cuts).

We could keep hating & ﬁghting but wouldn’t it be better if. . . To the editor, By now I doubt that any person in America still has not made up their mind about which man they want to be president. As a most intense and exhausting election season comes to a close, the real nature of the candidates (and their supporters) comes out loud and clear. On Friday, the two candidates boiled down their message to the lowest common denominator. Barack
Obama rallied his crowd to exact “revenge” against Republicans, clearly a threatening tone. Mitt Romney promises to work with all people to fix the things that have gone wrong, and policies that are not working. His line is “Vote for love of country”. We could keep hating and fighting each other, if you like, but wouldn’t it be better if we all just try to get along? Alan Moon, Tilton

Lamb will work in bi-partisan manner to develop job strategies To the editor, Over the past two years, I have been shocked and disappointed by the extreme positions taken by many currently serving in the state Legislature. That’s why this election is so important to me and many others. We simply must elect officials to the New Hampshire legislature who are genuinely willing to roll up their sleeves and address the primary issues we face: jobs and the economy. That’s why I am so strongly in support of Bob Lamb’s candidacy to the New Hampshire State Senate. Bob will take into consideration facts and information from multiple sources in voting on crucial legislation; the state budget, Medicaid expansion, the state retirement system, and the infrastructure needs of our state. I believe as Bob does that the budgetary decisions must be based on realistic budget projections and revenue. But the seri-
ous underfunding of public education by the current legislature must be stopped if we want to avoid crippling our economy for years to come. Bob has committed to voting in support of a balanced budget, and restoring the $50 million in cuts to the university and community college systems while implementing a tuition freeze to help to reduce the impact on our students. Bob understands that it is crucial that we have an educated workforce in order to grow our economy. Bob Lamb has also promised to work in a bi-partisan manner to develop strategies to create jobs, and grow the economy. I believe that Bob Lamb will be an outstanding state Senator, and I strongly urge you to join me in voting for Bob Lamb for the New Hampshire State Senate on November 6. Sharon Smith Plymouth
Jeanie Forrester has been back to Bristol many, many times To the editor, I read the letter from Selectman Richard Alpers and was quite surprised by what I read. Alpers falsely claims that Jeanie has “been absent in Bristol.” Senator Forrester, a former town administrator, visited every single one of the 31 towns in District 2 when she first decided to run for office — that included the Town of Bristol. She took that initiative because she values the work the selectboards do for their communities and wants to represent them well in Concord. Since elected to Senate District 2 she has been back to Bristol many, many times. Just recently she attended the “Lights on After School” in Kelley Park and spent time learning about the program. She’s visited the Bristol schoolscv — attending two classes, she’s been to the ribbon-cutting for the
groundbreaking of the Minot-Sleeper Library, she’s held ice cream socials at Riverview Village, she’s been to the Old Home Days, and church suppers. And, yes, she’s been back to visit the selectboard to give them an update on activities in Concord and the district. Just recently, Jeanie worked with the towns of Bristol, Ashland, Plymouth, and Holderness to hold a private-public partnership economic development forum. Those who know Jeanie know that she doesn’t seek the limelight, she is there to help her constituents. Jeanie is the hardest-working Senator District 2 has had in a long time. I’ll be voting for Jeanie on November 6th and encourage Bristol residents to vote for her too. Andrew Hemingway Bristol

LETTERS Public colleges & universities should be heavily funded by state
I beseech you, my neighbors, to vote with compassion, not fear
To the editor, A recent letter by Karen Sticht attempts to downplay the nearly $50M in N.H. higher education funding cuts by Concord’s current administration, claiming that N.H. tuition is a “good deal” and “comparable” to other states. She also asks a series of questions: “Were cuts made or were there just no increases? How much was cut? How much remains? Where will it be spent? Why were cuts made?” Roughly 50 percent cuts were made from $100M (FY2010 and 2011) to $51M (FY2012) and $54M (FY2013). The older budget (gencourt.state. nh.us/legislation/2009/hb0001.pdf) gave explicit allocation to UNH, PSU, Keene State, etc. The new $50M budget (gencourt.state.nh.us/legislation/2011/ hb0001.pdf) has no allocations, and according to a discussion I had with tea party incumbent Bob Greemore, will be allocated by the chancellor’s office. Greemore told me he and his fellow legislators made the cuts to “send a message” to the university system. About what, I don’t know, except maybe get ready for privatization. Sticht’s web link shows the average tuition of all schools in each state based on last year’s tuition, with N.H. the 4th most expensive in the country, and Pennsylvania (Penn State) holding the #1 slot. We are “comparable” only to the most expensive states. But more to the point we need to examine the before-and-after impact of Concord’s cuts. Here are tuitions for school year 2010-2011, before the cuts (usnh.edu/ students/fastfacts.pdf) UNH: $10,730; PSU and Keene: $7,650. Compare to current tuitions after the budget cuts: UNH: $16,422 (+53 percent), PSU and Keene: $10,410 (+36 percent). Penn State’s tuition increase in the corresponding period is +8 percent. My guess is we’ve handily snatched
To the editor, I spent the morning re-reading the American Nurses Association, Code of Ethics and was struck (again) by the deeply meaningful content of this document. It states that the nurse practices with compassion and respect for the inherent dignity, worth and uniqueness of every individual, unrestricted by considerations of social or economic status, personal attributes or the natureof health care problems. Additionally, it promotes respect for every individual’s right to selfdetermination, whether we agree with their choices or not. It also declares that nurses collaborate with other health professionals and the public in promoting community, national and international efforts to meet health needs. Whenever I read this document I am filled with a sense of pride for the profession I belong to and can’t help but think the provisions described in this code would have been a great addition to the declaration of independence. How, as a society, can we not embrace these same values? How, as individuals, can we not promote any effort to meet the health care needs of our neighbors? The Patient Protection
the #1 spot away from Pennsylvania. “Good deal”? Maybe for Penn State. Quoting USNH Chancellor Edward MacKay in the USNH 2012 annual report, the FY12 budget cuts resulted in New Hampshire having “the lowest level of [state] support in the nation on a per capita basis.” With an aging state, and arguably the 1st or 4th highest in-state tuitions in the country, we are forcing our young people out of state based on economics, not for lack of excellent educational opportunities. How does this benefit NH’s economic future when students can’t afford tuition in their own state? It’s an issue for all residents, not just those with collegeage or college-bound children. Higher education funding shouldn’t be a political issue. It’s a common sense issue that creates a young, desirable workforce, which creates and keeps jobs in New Hampshire. Employers will not come here if there is no educated workforce to draw from. Families will not move here if they cannot find affordable education and subsequent employment. The aging of N.H. will continue. Lastly, public colleges and universities should be heavily funded by the state, affording 2- and 4-year degree programs to our young people. It’s the state’s obligatory investment in its own future. The push towards privatization of public education at all levels is well underway (read: vouchers). It may save the state money in the short term, but the costs of underfunded K-12 and unaffordable higher education systems will far exceed the money saved. One message our legislators are clearly sending: they value the $20M they gave to private tobacco companies over the $50M they took from public education. Chris Mega Meredith
Martha Richards is type of leader we need in Grafton County To the editor, I have heard Martha Richards at several candidate forums these past few months and have been impressed by Martha’s forward thinking about some of the critical issues facing us in Grafton County. Here are some of the priorities Martha wants to focus on as Grafton County Commissioner: — Develop a long-term plan that will address the dire lack of mental health services and our aging population in our county. Martha will engage our County’s citizens to participate on these committees to make sure they get the services they need. — Maintain a balance between the downshifting of costs to the county while ensuring our needy citizens get the services they require. Martha spearheaded the geothermal and wood chip energy programs
for the Grafton County complex that will save money for our taxpayers. — Continue and improve the work at the new corrections facility that she started while she was Grafton County Commissioner in 2006-2010. I have worked with Martha with the annual Keep The Heat On! Fuel assistance fundraiser. Under Martha’s leadership, she has been able to raise nearly $150,000.00 in the past seven year for fuel assistance for residents in the Plymouth region that spans 17 towns. Martha is the type of leader we need in Grafton County. She is always looking ahead to see what needs to be done and determines the best way to accomplish it. I hope you will join me on November 6 and vote for Martha Richards for Grafton County Commissioner. Maureen Lamb Holderness
Hosmer advocates for public ed but sends his kids to private school To the editor, Andrew Hosmer confuses me. I read a letter recently that pointed out that Mr. Hosmer, a candidate for the State Senate, professed to be of the Catholic faith community, while supporting the pro-choice (pro-abortion) position
be a major contradiction, considering that The Challenge of Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship, from the U.S. Catholic bishops states, “There are some things we must never do, as individuals or as a society, because they are always incompatible see next page
and Affordable Care Act is a step in that direction. Yet, as a society, we’ve allowed this legislation to be dismissed as “ObamaCare” in an effort to demean the provisions that benefit us all. Why are we so afraid to call it what it is: Patient Protection and Affordable Care? The AARP principles also proclaim that every individual has the right to affordable, high quality health care, with adequate protection against high health care costs. Why do we not see this critical value as the central theme of this election? I beseech you, my N.H. neighbors, to vote with compassion and not with fear. Although it is difficult to find hard data, other than the reported 4 million dollar base pay, Anthem’s CEO received 42.5 million dollars in merit pay in 2004. Is this the best utilization of our precious health care dollars? Please, support President Obama and the Democrats on Tuesday. As a nurse, I know they are the ones who will legislate on behalf of every individual in this country, not just the select few that control the most resources. Barbara McElroy, RN Rumney

Tuesday, November 13th @ 7:00 Laconia Rotary Hall The Laconia Public Library will host newly-published author Jane Rice, a Moultonborough resident who has researched the high-flying exploits of New Hampshire’s aviation pioneer, Robert S. “Bob” Fogg. Bob learned to fly in 1918 and started barnstorming in New Hampshire in 1920. He started the Concord airport and taught many future aviators to fly, but he is perhaps best known for hopping passengers at the Weirs and delivering the first airmail on Lake Winnipesaukee in a war-surplus Curtiss flying boat. Classic Waco biplanes, Travel Airs, the famous “Staggerwing” Beechcraft and a Sikorsky flying boat were among the aircraft that once carried Weirs visitors on scenic thrill rides over the waters of Lake Winnipesaukee, and many other lakes and ponds around the state. Jane’s grandfather, Thomas E.P. Rice, was another World War I aviator who flew with Fogg at the Weirs in the 1930s, but family history research into Mr. Rice’s story turned into the first book published on the aviation career of Bob Fogg, a piece of New Hampshire’s 20th-century history that has been overlooked by other historians. Jane’s book, entitled “Bob Fogg and New Hampshire’s Golden Age of Aviation: Flying Over Winnipesaukee and Beyond,” is in the collection of the Laconia Public Library and will also be available for sale and signing at the program. Hosted by Laconia Public Library and the Laconia Historical Society.

BELMONT — After reviewing the supplemental information provided by Town Planner Candace Daigle, selectmen voted 2-to-1 yesterday to keep the land use department funding as presented and continue with the position of land use technician. Selectman Chair Jon Pike and Vice Chair Ron Cormier supported the $296,000 request while Selectman Ruth Mooney did not. “I have made some phone calls. They come back to me and tell me the Land Use budget is heavy,” she said, explaining her dissent. Mooney said her recollection of the discussion surrounding the discussion of the position of land use technician was not that selectmen were trying to get rid of anyone but that they wanted some accountability of what duties are performed and how selectmen can justify the position to the taxpayers. Pike said that it is the responsibility of the selectmen to ask what exactly it is that the taxpayers are paying for and now that he had Daigle’s explanation and a break down of the duties of the land use technician, he would support it. Conservation Commission Chair Ken Knowlton and Planning Board Chair Peter Harris both attended the meeting. Knowlton complimented the selectmen on asking the question and said he “wholeheartedly agreed with accountability.” He said when he was on the Budget Committee he “always asked if something was wanted or needed.” He also spoke in favor of keeping the land use technician position. Harris said he used “to think exactly like the people who have asked the questions.” He lauded the expertise that he feels the Planning Board gets from the Land Use Department and said he was there to “speak on their behalf and their department.” Both have previously said the duties performed by the land use technician have helped both the community and the people who want to do business or live there. When Mooney asked if other towns the size of Belmont (about 7,500 people) had land use technicians, Beaudin said typically most towns have someone who performs the duties but the position is not always carried in the planning department. Daigle said her breakdown shows the land use technician performs tasks in 17 different categories — most notably the conservation commission, land use, and road inventories. Daigle also said there is savings to the town because having a land use technician means the town doesn’t have to spend money on paying outside contractors to perform the services done by him. “That’s exactly what I wanted,” Pike said. “It’s not just the salary but the avoided expense.” see next page from preceding page with love of God and neighbor.” “A legal system that allows the right to life to be violated on the grounds of choice is fundamentally flawed.” Andrew Hosmer confuses me. Although he is on the one hand, for “choices”, he opposes education tax-credit programs, which allow parents options in choosing schools which serve the best interests of their children. While advocating for public education for others, he sends his own children to private school. Does it seem fair that taxpayers, who fund public education (my community spends $19,000+ per pupil for elementary students), can’t have some tax relief so that they can choose an academic setting that they find more academically, morally, physically and spiritually in line with their beliefs? Or, is it only for the privileged few? Are these the actions of someone who has the best interests of our community in mind? Neil Flaherty Gilford

2 vehicles involved in Rte. 106 crash in Belmont BELMONT — Police continue to investigate a two car crash that happened at 2:40 p.m. yesterday on Route 106 near the Fruit Street intersection. While details are scarce, one of the cars appeared to skid across Route 106, roll up on to its side and stop on the front lawn of the Belmont Business Park. The windshield was broken from the car and one of the witnesses said one of passengers was partially ejected. The second car stopped further north. Police said Douglas Franks, 69, of Gilford was taken by ambulance to Lakes Region General Hos-
pital because of injuries sustained in the crash. A statement released the the media did not say if Franks was driving one of the cars. Traffic was slowed through the area but police were able to keep one lane open. Sgt. Richard Mann was at the scene and said it appeared all of those involved were wearing seat belts. Anyone who witnessed the crash or has any information about it is asked to call the Belmont Police at 267-8350. — Gail Ober
from preceding page He also said he understood that while not all communities have an “land use technician” nearly all of them have the same duties performed people in other departments. “It’s like comparing apples to oranges,” he said. The selectman’s final operating budget will be presented to the Budget Committee on November 13 at 6:30 p.m. The board will discuss and finalize the capital budget at their next meeting but the Budget Committee will begin working on the rest of the budget next Tuesday.
In other business, Town Administrator Jeanne Beaudin said the N.H. Department of Revenue set the town’s 2013 property tax rate late last week and she expects tax bills to go out by the end of this week. The 2012 rate is $21.70 per $1,000 of evaluation. She said the town rate is $7.42, which is down by 10 cents; the local school portion is $10.93, which is up 48 cents; the state-wide property tax used to fund school adequacy is $2.16 and is down by 19 cents; and the Belknap County rate is $1.19 and down 5 cents.

I’m sure you will agree that planning is vital in almost anything done well. This could not be truer than planning for your retirement. After working with retirees for many years, there are two types of regrets I’ve listened to over the years; not having enough money at retirement or not having spent enough of the monies accumulated. Let’s face it; Retirement Planning is not about living an extravagant lifestyle, it’s about making choices now when you still have time to influence your future. If you stop and think a bit, retiring is also about common sense and common sense goes a long way. If you break it down into various considerations like CASH FLOW for example, you can think it through logically. Let’s say you earn $60,000 a year and your expenses are $50,000 a year, you probably don’t want to take that $10,000 vacation this year. I think you would agree that this would be cutting it pretty close. However; you could perhaps share expenses with another person. For example, if your expenses could be cut in half by sharing living expenses with another family member or friend this might generate another $2,500 monthly and these additional monies could really impact your budget positively. I think the most practical way to look at your retirement is to factor in your lifestyle and longevity and make projections based on reasonable assumptions for these variables. These variables are just that. One variable is that no one knows for certain just how long any of us will live. Common sense tells us that tax qualified monies like IRAs, 401K monies, and/or pension assets need to be spent as practically as possible. On the other hand, holding on to your monies as tax qualified funds now means you will pay taxes on a greater amount and possibly at a higher rate later during your retirement years when your health might not support your ambitions. Which is the wiser choice? No one knows until they sit down and look at what they want for their retirement. Every advisor is different and we all tend to advise based on our own “personal bent”. My experience is that elder Americans could have been better served if their advisor had encouraged them to spend their tax qualified accounts systematically and enjoy the fruits of their labors evenly over time. This strategy could have provided needed monies and fewer taxes in the long run. This is true especially if the retiree dies leaving a fully taxable IRA to his/her beneficiaries (this is referred to as income with respect to the decedent). I hope this is not coming across sounding too technical, but retirement planning is a financial process that involves a lot of emotional decisions. There is way too much information to cover in this short article. I will continue this topic of Retirement Planning Issues in my next article. I’m heading to Maine to hunt for a couple of weeks and Steve Spratt, my associate will write the next article.

VENEERS: Your ticket to Hollywood? Veneers are a great way to improve the appearance of your smile if your teeth will support them. Teeth that are structurally sound may be candidates for veneers, which can be delivered using a gentle procedure that requires minimal reshaping of the teeth – in many cases without even using Novocain. Dental veneers use a thin covering of porcelain (made in a lab) or composite resin (made in the dental office) to create a beautiful, natural looking “facing” on the visible parts of your teeth. They look great regardless of what is underneath them. If your teeth are discolored from injury, medications such as tetracycline, or other causes you may want to ask your dentist about veneers. In addition to changing the color of your teeth, veneers can also alter their size, shape, and arrangement. Do you have spaces between your front teeth, or teeth that are worn or chipped? Veneers can make these defects go away. They have a pleasing naturalness and will last for many years when properly performed. Thinking about changing your smile? Ask your dentist if this technology can work for you. George T. Felt, DDS, MAGD 9 Northview Drive 279-6959 www.meredithdental.com

Huard argues police interview was improper & his medical records were obtained without permission By Gail OBer
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — The man who allegedly threatened the lives of a Laconia police detective and the city prosecutor claims the police violated his rights when they interviewed him at the hospital and when they obtained his medical records without a warrant. The attorney for Bernard O. Huard, 54, formerly of Gilford, filed two motions to suppress evidence — one arguing that when police first encountered him he was placed in handcuffs and taken to Lakes Region General Hospital for a psychological evaluation and one arguing the information police obtained from his doctor was privileged and violated his right to privacy. Huard is charged with three counts of enhanced criminal threatening, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct for allegedly calling a doctor’s office and telling them he was going to kill Det. Kevin Butler and Prosecutor Jim Sawyer. He allegedly told an employee of the doctor’s office he was going to get an AK-47 (assault rifle) and shoot the two. When police detained Huard, he allegedly had 40 rounds of AK-47 ammo in his possession and was allegedly trying to obtain a rifle from a person he knew. While in an observation room at LRGH where he remained handcuffed, Public Defender John Bresau said said Capt. William Clary came in and began speaking with him about his allegedly threats on the Butler’s life. During the conversation, he said Clary questioned Huard about Butler and Sawyer, asking him if he ever made formal complaints against either of them. Police reports indicate that Huard repeated his threats against the two, saying Butler was keeping him from entering the computer game Farmville and Butler and Sawyer were making movies about him and projecting them in 3-D on to the wall in his room. Bresau argues that Huard was in custody when Clary began speaking with him and Clary was required to read him his Miranda rights regarding statements to police and self-incrimination before speaking with him. “In the absence of a formal arrest, the court is to examine whether a suspect’s freedom of movement was sufficiently curtailed by considering how a reasonable person in the suspect’s position would have understood the situation,” said Bresau citing New Hampshire case law. He said Clary’s discussion with Huard was tan-
tamount to an interrogation, that he remained in physical custody (the handcuffs) and that Clary knew about the alleged threats before Huard had been brought to the hospital. In a different motion to suppress the evidence, Bresau said the employee of the doctor’s office is a former police officer who had had working relationships with both Gilford Police, to whom she initially reported the alleged threat, and the Laconia Police, where she worked as a sergeant. Bresau argues that no provision of N.H. state law provides for the release of privileged medical information based on the scenario presented. “The (physician-patient) privilege belongs to the patient, who may prevent the physician from revealing statements whose confidentiality the patient wishes to preserve,” he wrote. Bresau said the communications Huard made to the doctor’s office were related to obtaining medications and the questions posed by the reporting employee were designed to elicit information about the state of his mental and physical health. The employee related the information to the doctor and Bresau said the doctor called Huard to try and help him. Bresau argues the employee violated the doctor patient privilege when she called the Gilford Police and the conversation the employee had with Huard ultimately resulted in the alleged threats. Bresau argued further that Gilford Police seizure of Huard’s medical records without a warrant from the employee constituted a unlawful search and seizure. Arguing against the motions is Belknap County Attorney Melissa Guldbrandsen, who said the statements allegedly made by Huard regarding Butler and Sawyer had nothing to do with his attempt get a medical diagnosis or treatment related to any medical condition and the statements should be admitted into evidence. “HIPAA authorized disclosure if the medical entity ‘in good faith, believes the use or disclosure is necessary to prevent or lessor a serious and imminent threat to the health or safety of a person or the public...,’ “ Guldbrandsen wrote. Guldbrandsen said the employee acted reasonably because she had a “good faith reason” to believe Huard was going to harm the two. She said the employee’s statement and voluntary release of Huard’s medical records to police did not see next page

SENATE 7 from page one “Too much stress has been laid on the candidate’s characters, life stories or personal good faith,” wrote the Economist columnist Lexington in the most recent issue of the magazine. “Too little has been laid on the feasibility of their products.” For voters of Senate District 7 the stress on personality and character has been endless. Just recently, the N.H. Democratic Party mailed two oversized postcards to an unknown number of registered voters in the district. One of them depicts Republican Joshua Youssef as saying that being a victim of domestic violence is a woman’s fault and the most recent one infers that Youssef behaved in a sexually inappropriate way with his young son. As to the first charge, in a debate in Franklin, Youssef said he would support more education to assist people who find themselves in domestically violent situations. In the other, the alleged improprieties came to light as part of Youssef’s ugly and seemingly endless divorce and subsequent child custody case. A marital master and a district court judge found the accusations to be unfounded and Youssef said he now enjoys a fruitful and loving relationship with his son — if not with his ex-wife. In both cases, Democrat Andrew Hosmer has distanced himself from the above allegations. In a phone conversation yesterday, he said he was especially offended by the accusations made about Youssef and his son and said he had spoken with representatives of the N.H. Democrats to voice his displeasure. Democratic Party media spokesman Colin Gately sent The Sun an e-mail declining to comment, saying only that the Democrats were busy getting the vote out. “It’s gone too far,” said Hosmer, adding that while he has been in touch with the state Democrats, he has no input or control over the postcards they mail. “Kids and families should be left out of this.” GOP media spokeswoman Meg Stone said yesterday that the mailers “were a tasteless and desperate attack by Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley. “It’s just more of the same,” she said. Youssef said yesterday he is working with a first amendment attorney and will file suit against the Democratic Party for the statements made in the fliers.

“Somebody needs to stand up to this filthy. filthy politicing and that will be me,” he said. But Homser’s family has been a recent target as well. Within the past week an online blog written by Nathan Defosses of 789 Union Avenue attacks Hosmer for what the author calls “nannygate.” He claims Hosmer has paid for nannies for his four children without paying a nanny tax. Hosmer responded by saying he and his family have employed a series of nannies for a number of years and have always used a nanny service that is registered with the U.S. State Department. Yousef said yesterday than he knows Defosses and considers him a supporter but said he had no knowledge of his blog. Additionally, independent reporter Chris King has targeted Hosmer, again on his use of nannies. Youssef said he has been interviewed by King, who appears to operate a blog, but said he’s only met him about four times and doesn’t consider him a friend. About three weeks ago, a man who gave The Daily Sun a false name leveled the same nanny accusations against Hosmer. Youssef said he doesn’t know Trey (in reality Troy) Brown but has read some of his letters to the editor written in support of his campaign. Perhaps the most serious allegation made so far is one made by Hosmer against King, who he said taped a telephone conversation with campaign manager Lucas Meyer without Meyer knowledge or approval. It is illegal in New Hampshire to tape a phone call or any other conversation without the knowledge and consent of the person being taped. The conversation, which appears as part of King’s blog, appears to center around whether or not Hosmer would agree to be interviewed. see next page from preceding page constitute a “search” or a “seizure.” As to Huard’s statements to Clary while he was in the observation room at LRGH, Guldbrandsen said Clary asked him repeatedly if he realized he was making statements in front of three police officers and Clary had asked Huard to stop talking. She said despite Clary’s warnings to the contrary, Huard continued to talk and made additional threats against Butler. She said Huard made the statements to Clary of his own free will and the statements should be allowed to be admitted into evidence. A hearing on the motions was held Monday afternoon in the Belknap County Superior Court. Huard’s trail is scheduled for November 19.

Manufacturers give strong thumbs up to curriculum at LRCC LACONIA — Lakes Region Community College received unanimous support last week from more than 20 regional advanced manufacturing leaders of the curriculum it is designing to prepare New Hampshire workers and job seekers for success in high-skill, high-tech positions. The voice vote was taken during a meeting of LRCC’s “business advisory committee” to update entrepreneurs on progress the school has made under the $19.9 million federal Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training grant, approved in 2010 and awarded to Great Bay Community College in Portsmouth and its six consortium colleges. Funds from the grant are being used to develop or update advanced manufacturing curriculums and laboratories across the Community College System of New Hampshire. The initiative has been embraced by manufacturers across the state, who have struggled to find enough qualified people to keep up with demand for their products, which are used by companies in industries as diverse as aerospace, medical and automotive. The call for help was repeated October 26, with Gary Groleau, corporate manager of labor relations for New Hampshire Ball Bearings, based in Laconia, saying the discussion of how to create a pipeline of qualified job applicants for companies desperate for workers began years ago and “the hiring problem is not going away.”
“We need an orderly way to bring new people in,” he said. “We need a program like TAACCCT to do it.” Carl Daniels, energy services and technology head at LRCC and former Aavid Thermalloy employee, agreed, and added that the workforce need is nationwide. “These are good people,” he said of the hordes of job seekers, from recent high school graduates to veterans returning from military service, to workers displaced due to layoffs, to currently employed people whose skills have fallen behind current technologies. “But they just don’t know how to do the work.” The curriculum being developed at LRCC and the six other colleges in the consortium was developed to align directly with the needs of regional manufacturers. Business leaders were brought in to guide the development process and have even donated thousands of dollars in equipment to ensure a smooth transition from training and education programs at the community colleges onto the manufacturing floors of their companies. Thermalloy, specifically, has donated several pieces of automated machinery to LRCC, including a Matsura vertical milling machine. The company’s investment in the program totals in the thousands of dollars. The curriculum approved by manufacturers Friday includes courses as part of an advanced manufacturing certificate; an associate’s degree program is in the works. Courses cover machine processes, blueprint reading and solid modeling, computer numerical con-
from preceding page Hosmer said Meyer was in Tilton when he had the phone conversation with King and Tilton Police confirmed last night it was reported to them and the detective bureau is looking into it. What Hosmer has enjoyed and Youssef hasn’t is the overt financial support of his party. While numerous attempts to reach voters on behalf of Hosmer have been paid for by the Democratic Party, the state GOP has not visibly supported Youssef. Locally, Republicans have included him in advertising that depict a sample ballot.
“No we have not sent any mailers into that district because we have limited resources,” said Stone. But like, Lexington, a Brit, said in his references to the American presidential election, “...take a step back, and this small-minded, mean election points to a big, reassuring constant of American politics. Pitted against each other in contests turbocharged by partisanship and pots of money, politicians often overreach... “The temptation to overreach is never far away. Happily, in American politics, punishment for those who succumb is often close behind,” he said.
trolled machining and machine tool math. Math, in particular, is a concern of employers looking to make hires, but going to college to brush up or learn it “doesn’t have to be scary,” according to Jennifer Scotland, director of the WorkReadyNH site at Great Bay Community College in Portsmouth. The program, free to people ages 18 and over who are unemployed or underemployed and who are not full time students, provides professional assessments to participants in technical and soft skill competencies, provides 60 hours of training and then awards tiered certifications, which job seekers can cite as part of the application process and which can help employers quickly sort resumes. A gateway program aimed at decreasing unemployment, it is considered an accessible first step of sorts toward earning a full degree. WorkReadyNH sites, funded in part by the TAACCCT grant, are up and running at four of the seven community colleges, and a location is expected to open soon at LRCC. The words “urgent” and “need” were used repeatedly during the meeting, and are no surprise to Don Brough, TAACCCT project director at LRCC. Excited about the unanimous vote of support for the new curriculum, he said as he showed off space that will house a new manufacturing lab at LRCC that the college’s industry partners are crying out: “You MUST do this!” And as he plans the layout of the lab, purchases computers and other equipment and adds to the growing list of industry supporters, he’s happy to oblige. After all, he said, Laconia has a lively history of manufacturing, and he wants to take it into the next generation.

LAKEPORT from page one way center, the freight house is the sole remaining reminder of that bygone era and now houses all kinds of memorabilia from Lakeport’s past, knitting machinery from the old Scott and Williams plant, a large collection of scrapbooks and assorted memorabilia from association co-founder Bob Fortier’s collecion, a railroad collection owned by Annie Oehlschlaeger. There are wooden water pipes, Victorian clothing donated by the Richardson family and even a lawn jockey, a statue of a black boy with a hitch for horses held in his hand, which for years was on the lawn of the Goss Reading Room in Lakeport and was the subject of an intense controversy in 1967. Armand Bolduc, association president, said that the small statue has been stored for years in the basement of the Goss Reading room, ever since ot was removed from the lawn 45 years ago.

In all the association raised pver $100,000 according to Dorothy Duffy, a long-time volunteer with the association, said that it was unfortunate that Fortier, who has given so much to the association over the years, was unable to attend the grand opening of the museum due to knee surgery. She said that one of the displays honors the longtime ‘’Queen’’ of Lakeport, Wanda Tibbetts, who helped form the association and was the motivating force in keeping it focused on preserving the freight house and fostering community pride in Lakeport. Claire Clark of Black Brook, who composed a song for the grand opening in honor of Tibbetts, sang the song with Tina Hayward, Susan Dath and Jane Kneuer as she played her guitar. State District One Executive Councilor Ray Burton, a long-time railroad buff, attended the grand opening and said that the museum will help keep Lakeport’s history alive and adds to the attractiveness of the area. Duffy said the association is already planning to host school tours and plans on having the museum open during the summer months so that tourists can visit it and learn more about Lakeport’s history. She said the association is most grateful to so many for their help with donations, artifacts, in-kind services, advice and support from the community, along with railroad friends, historians and appraisers.

vice. “It will not be good.” Some communities were considering again evacuating neighborhoods that were hit hard by Sandy and where residents had only recently been allowed to return. No town had made a final decision to do so as of Monday evening. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg decided against a new round of evacuations. “When Sandy was coming in, all the signs said that we were going to have a very dangerous, damaging storm, and I ordered a mandatory evacuation of lowlying areas, something that a lot of people don’t like to hear,” he said. “In this case, we don’t think that it merits that. It is a different kind of storm; the wind is coming from a different direction.”

Squam Lakes Association presenting program on invasive plant species Thursday night HOLDERNESS — The Squam Lakes Association (SLA) is hosting its monthly speaker series on Thursday, November 8 at 7 p.m. White Mountain National Forest (WMNF) Botanist, Chris Mattrick will present a program on invasive plant species. Invasive species have been characterized as a “catastrophic wildfire in slow motion.” Thousands of non-native invasive plants, insects, fish, mollusks, crustaceans, pathogens, mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians have infested hundreds of millions of acres of land and water across the nation, causing massive disruptions in ecosystem function, reducing biodiversity, and degrading ecosystem health in our nation’s forests, prairies, mountains, wetlands, rivers, and oceans. “Locally, the most frequently encountered invasive plants are Japanese knotweed, non-native shrub honeysuckles, Oriental bittersweet, and glossy buckthorn in terrestrial systems, and milfoil in aquatic systems”, said Chris Mattrick. “Effective control measures exist for nearly all invasive species, but early detection and rapid implementation
of control measures are key to successfully managing infestations”, he added. The WMNF is undertaking innovative prevention and control measures to minimize the impact of these introduced species on the landscape. Join us as we learn more about the threat of non-native invasive species and how you can help through the White Mountain Early Detection Network. The program will begin at 7 p.m. at the SLA Headquarters, 534 Route 3, Holderness. For more information call the SLA at (603) 968-7336. The Squam Speaker Series is a monthly program that focuses on a variety of local/regional conservation and environmental topics. All talks in the series are free and open to the public. The Speaker Series will continue in January with a visit from a local sled dog team and a program on mushing in NH. The Squam Lakes Association is dedicated to conserving for the public benefit the natural beauty, peaceful character and unique resource values of the Squam Lakes and surrounding watershed. For more information visit: www.squamlakes.org.

By Holiday Mathis have control when you really don’t. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Others only know you up to a certain point, and you will continue to protect your privacy so well that the majority of people don’t even realize there is more of you to know. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). To overcome an obstacle is usually a commendable feat. But what if the obstacle was self-invented? In that case, conquering it is not only a feat; it’s also a duty. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your recuperative powers are strong. Also, you have the resourceful ability to make something new out of something old. At the very least, you’ll remember to recycle. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Not only do you pay lip service to your devotions; you prove your devotion in the way you schedule your time. Your strong attachment to home and family will be apparent in your lifestyle. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The amount of love you give is not always equal to the amount of love you receive from a particular individual. But your love always comes back from somewhere and in a multiplied form. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 6). You’ll be emboldened to take risks that weren’t options until now. This month brings a professional boost. Developments in your love life lead to December travel. You’ll use your resources to enhance your image in January. Your name goes into a hat in February, and if you want the opportunity, it’s yours. Leo and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 45, 1, 14, 34 and 26.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll get off to an excellent start, as the moon in your fellow fire sign adds fuel to your motivation. Make the most of the morning’s mental clarity by taking an hour to plan one of the more complex parts of your life. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Having a schedule and checking it several times throughout the day will help you stay on track. However, don’t be bound to this list of tasks. Important options will surface unexpectedly in the late afternoon. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). As your guiding planet decides to travel backward, you start to work a problem with a different approach. You could very well figure this one out by the day’s end. CANCER (June 22-July 22). The dangerous temptation of electronic envy could be a problem now, as the glossy allure of other people’s digitally accessible “alleged” lives is only a click away. Keep in mind that much depends on the photographer. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The moon in your sign empowers your playful urges. It’s true that not everyone understands your sense of humor, but as long as the majority of people in the room “get it,” the others will go along for the ride. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). As your guiding planet, Mercury, changes direction, messages could be misconstrued, lost or forgotten. Luckily, when something is really important to you, you’ll write it on your heart. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It is easy for you to accept what you cannot change. What’s hard is figuring out whether or not something falls into that category. Sometimes it looks like you

bles and exactly how misunderstandings occur. Amy-Jill Levine is University Professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies, E. Rhodes and Leona B.

She has produced lecture series for “The Great Courses” and was one of the experts in the “Saving Jesus” seminars.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, November 6, 2012— Page 29
Dear Annie: My husband, “Paul,” wants nothing to do with my 36-year-old son, “Alan.” I admit that Alan lived with us too long and has done some terrible things, but he’s my son and I love him. I’ve enabled him because of his health problems. He has diabetes, epilepsy and vision problems and, in the past year, has lost 80 pounds. A few weeks ago, Alan threatened suicide and had a knife in his hand. Paul didn’t know what to do and called the police to have Alan arrested. We found out later that he was doing drugs, so Paul kicked him out and issued a restraining order keeping his stepson away from the house. Alan was gone for several weeks, living with various friends. Despite the restraining order, he came over yesterday morning. He hadn’t eaten in days. His friends have abandoned him, and he is homeless. Paul said he “needs to learn,” but I was worried sick and was so glad to see him. But when Paul saw him eating at the kitchen table, he threatened to move out. I thought I had found a home for Alan at the local mission, but discovered he was blackballed because of some incident years ago. Now he’s on the street with no medicine, friends or money. But, Annie, he’s my son. No one should live like this. Paul refuses to let him come back, even conditionally. I’m not crazy about it, either, but I don’t know how to get Alan the help he needs. What can I do? -- Heartbroken Mother Dear Mother: This must be terribly painful for you, but there are limits to how much you can help a child who is on drugs and refuses to help himself. Contact NarAnon (nar-anon.org) at 1-800-477-6291 and ask for assis-
tance. You also could call or visit the local mission and see whether they will give you a referral to another facility that might take Alan in. Dear Annie: In June, I received an invitation to my second cousin’s high school graduation. The same day, I received an invitation to her sister’s wedding with a note saying she also had just graduated from college. Mind you, I had not heard from this side of the family in years. (My husband recently died, and I received no condolences.) I sent a respectable amount of money to the younger sister and a lovely Catholic Bible to the bride and groom (a Catholic friend suggested this). I was quite thrilled to do this for them. But here I sit, months later, with no thankyou note, not even a preprinted acknowledgment. If the bride and groom are too busy, even a note from my cousin would diminish my disappointment. What do you think of this? -- B.W. in Florida Dear Florida: We think this is quite rude. You can, of course, call your cousin and ask whether the gifts were received. A lost item is always a possibility. And if you don’t attend these events or know these people well, you do not have to send anything more than a card with your best wishes. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Bring Back Wedding Etiquette” about the couple who requested donations for their honeymoon. I was aghast, to put it mildly. Had I received that invitation, I think I would have made a donation to a national food bank in their name and sent a note saying, “A couples massage might last an hour. This donation in your name will feed a family for several days.” -- Omaha
