New furnace but old chimney leads to CO crises in downtown apartment building By GAil oBer


LACONIA — Dangerous levels of carbon monoxide forced the evacuation of a 3-story, 12-apartment building at 12 Pleasant Street Wednesday night. Fire Chief Ken Erickson said firefighters were called to the apartment building by tenant Sherry Roderick, who said she had noticed smelled something all day and knew someone had been working on the furnace earlier that day. Firefighters entered the building with a multi-gas meter and while climbing the stairs to the second floor readings indicated the carbon monoxide level was 30 parts-per-million — a level considered unsafe for long-term exposure. Lt. Chris Shipp evacuated the building and requested an ambulance to be on the safe side. At some point, see CO page 10

Gale School question back on Shaker/Belmont radar screen By GAil oBer


BELMONT — After a lengthy discussion, members of the Shaker Regional School District asked Interim Superintendent Maria Dreyer to contact a specialty realtor to get an estimate on how much value the unoccupied Gale School building has. Dryer offered her services after telling the members she has contacts with a company that specializes in selling old schools

after working with the company in a previous school district. “It’s a wonderful building,” said Belmont School Board member Donna Cilly. “Everyone wants to keep it but nobody has any money.” She said that every year that goes by, the historic building deteriorates and becomes more and more of a liability to the school district. Cilly put into words the conundrum faced

by the Shaker Board — no one wants to see the Gale School destroyed but when school district taxpayer see the price tag for relocating it, the will to do it just isn’t there. Belmont member Rich Bryant suggested a non-binding warrant article to take the temperature of the district’s voters. Sean Embree, also of Belmont, said a warrant article would provide the board with the feelings of the voters but he was for a stronsee GaLE page 10

N.H. Ball Bearings contributes $10k to LHS fund drive By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — While much attention has been paid to the new athletic stadium currently being constructed as part of a $16.8-million building project at the High School, Gary Groleau’s attention is drawn to the renovations to the Huot Regional Technical Education Center, especially the investments made in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics programs, collectively referred to as STEM. Groleau, a graduate of LHS, is a recent appointee to the N.H. State Board of Education. He’s also the corporal manager of organizational development at New Hampshire Ball Bearings and is a trustee of that corporation’s charitable foundation.

Not a banner year but Belknap Co. still more Republican than most By michAel Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — As one of just five counties — three of them in New Hampshire — among the 65 counties in the six New England states carried by the Republican ticket of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in this week’s presidential election, Belknap County again showed

itself as one of the strongest — if not the strongest — redoubts of the GOP in the state. Belknap County joined Carroll and Rockingham counties in New Hampshire, Piscataquis County in Maine and Litchfield County in Connecticut to deny President Obama a majority of the vote. Romney carried eight of the 10 towns in the

Early plane crash report says New Hampton School trustee made 180º turn, wheels up

HOOKSETT (AP) — A preliminary accident report of a New Hampshire plane crash that killed a Rhode Island couple says the pilot appeared to be in good spirits shortly before the crash. The National Transportation Safety Board released its preliminary report in the Oct. 25 accident on Interstate 93 in Hooksett. Herman and Doris Hassinger, both 83 and from Block Island, died. Herman Hasinger was a long-serving trustee of New Hampton School and was on his way north to a board meeting at the Belknap County prep school. He took off from Block Island State Airport and landed at Boire Field in Nashua to clean the airplane’s windscreen before departing for Laconia. Shortly after takeoff, Hassinger contacted the Boston terminal radar approach control see PLANE page 10

Life sentence for man who shot Giffords & killed 6 TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Gabrielle Giffords limped to the front of the courtroom and stared silently Thursday as she came face-to-face for the first time with the man who tried to kill her. The former congresswoman hadn’t been near Jared Lee Loughner since the deadly rampage outside a meet-and-greet at a supermarket that killed six people and left her partially blind, with a paralyzed right arm and brain injury. Giffords’ astronaut husband told Loughner what Giffords couldn’t, before he was

sentenced to seven life terms for the January 2011 slayings and attempted assassination of a member of Congress. “Mr. Loughner, you may have put a bullet through her head, but you haven’t put a dent in her spirit and her commitment to make the world a better place,” Mark Kelly said. Giffords, wearing a black brace around her torso, looked closely at the 24-yearold Loughner for several minutes without uttering a word. Loughner returned their gaze, but

showed no emotion. His mother sobbed nearby. Loughner was then ordered to serve the seven consecutive life sentences, plus 140 years in federal prison for the shootings that killed six people and wounded 13, including Giffords, as she met with constituents in a Tucson shopping plaza. His guilty plea enables him to avoid a federal death sentence. No state charges will be filed. The sentencing marked the end of a see GIFFORDS page 4

Off to Asia: Obama to visit Myanmar, Cambodia & Thailand

WASHINGTON (AP) — Less than two weeks after his re-election, President Barack Obama will become the first U.S. president to visit the once pariah nation of Myanmar, drawing attention to the country’s shift to democracy and highlighting what his administration regards as a marquee foreign policy achievement. Obama will also travel to Cambodia, a first for a U.S. president as well, and to

Thailand during the Nov. 17-20 trip. In Cambodia, the president will attend the East Asia summit in Phnom Penh and meet with leaders of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. The symbolic highlight of the trip, no doubt, is Obama’s stop in Myanmar, also known as Burma, a country emerging from five decades of ruinous military rule. While there, Obama will meet with President

Thein Sein and also with Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, the White House said. While the trip places new focus on Obama’s foreign policy and to American attention to the Asia and Pacific region, it also comes at as Obama begins sensitive negotiations with congressional leaders about how to avoid looming tax increases and steep cuts in defense and domestic see OBAMA page 11

CONCORD (AP) — Two oil companies are paying the state of New Hampshire a total of $35 million to settle pending claims from a lawsuit alleging that they added MTBE to gasoline, knowing that it would contaminate ground water supplies, Attorney General Michael Delaney said Thursday.

The state, which sued the companies and others in 2003, contends they knew they were supplying a product with unique hazards — specifically, that MTBE travels father and is more difficult to clean up than other contaminants. Shell Oil Company and Sunoco Inc.

agreed to the settlement, Delaney said. “Shell is pleased to reach a resolution with the state of New Hampshire in this matter,” said Kayla Macke, a spokeswoman for Shell. A call to an attorney representing Sunoco wasn’t immediately returned see MTBE page 12

Saying election result defies logic, Kingsbury asks for Laconia recount LACONIA — Representative Bob Kingsbury (R-Laconia), who lost his bid for re-election to a second term, yesterday asked the New Hampshire Secretary of State for a recount of the votes for state representative in the six wards of Laconia (Belknap County District 3). It was illogical to accept, he suggested, that one Republican candidate would get 500 votes less than another, or than one Democratic candidate would attract 1,000 votes more than his ticket-mates. District 3 returns four members to the New Hampshire House of Representatives. This year teach party fielded a full slate of four candidates. Democrat David Huot topped the ballot with 3,682 votes, followed by Republicans Frank Tilton with 3,604, Don Flanders with 3,584 and Bob Luther with 3,239. Kingsbury finished fifth with 2,989, 250 votes out of the money. In requesting a recount, Kingsbury

noted that the pool of voters was the same for all eight candidates. Furthermore, he said that the four Republican candidates ran similar campaigns and found themselves facing similar criticism for their contribution to the record of the Legislature, which was controlled by Republican lawmakers during the past two years. Kingsbury found it suspicious that while similar Republican candidates faced a common electorate, the difference between the winning and losing Republican was approximately 500 votes. He observed that among the four Democratic candidates, who also ran “essentially identical races,” the difference between the first and last place finishers was even greater, approaching 1,000 votes. Citing the “two extreme swings of votes,” Kingsbury asked for the votes to be recounted. — Michael Kitch

Man who pushed girlfriend into Wolfeboro campfire gets 7 1/2 years WOLFEBORO (AP) — A New Hampshire man accused of attacking his girlfriend with a rock and pushing her into a campfire in Wolfeboro has been sentenced to at least 7 1/2 years in prison. David Connor Ford was arrested in April. Police said he punched her in the face with his fists and the rock, attempted to strangle her and held her down into an active fire pit. The woman

suffered several injuries, including second-degree burns on her arms. Foster’s Daily Democrat reports the 31-year-old Ford told police he was “black out” drunk during the incident. Ford’s charges initially included attempted murder. The Carroll County attorney’s office said Ford was willing to enter a guilty plea if that charge was dropped. He pleaded guilty to assault and criminal restraint charges.

GIFFORDS from page 2 nearly two-year-long saga in which Loughner, who has schizophrenia, was forcibly medicated at a Missouri prison medical facility so he can be competent to understand the charges against him. U.S. District Judge Larry Burns recommended Thursday that he remain there indefinitely. Some victims, including Giffords, welcomed the plea deal as a way to move on. It spared victims and their families from having to go through a potentially lengthy and traumatic trial and locks Loughner up for life. At the hearing, Loughner looked nothing like the smiling bald man with a bruise around his eye seen in the mug shot taken after the shooting. He had closely cropped brown hair and was wearing dress pants, shirt and tie. One by one, his victims had the chance to tell him how his actions immeasurably changed their lives. They approached the podium to address Loughner, and asked the judge if they could turn to face him. Loughner told the judge that he would not speak, and sat showing no visible emotion at a table with his attorneys. The last victim to approach the podium was Giffords, causing the courtroom to go quiet and somber. The couple had been sitting several rows behind the prosecutor’s table, across the room from Loughner. As they sat in the courtroom, Kelly put his arm around her, and she

would lean into him. When they made their way gingerly to the podium, the 42-year-old Giffords, dressed in black pants and a turquoise shirt, limped. Kelly held her arm and spoke to Loughner, who stared blankly at the couple. “Gabby would trade her own life to bring back any one of those you savagely murdered on that day,” Kelly said. “Gabby works harder in one minute of an hour fighting to make each individual moment count for something than most of us work in an entire day.” Kelly added: “Her life has been forever changed. Plans she had for our family and her career have been immeasurably altered. Every day is a continuous struggle to do those things she once was so good at.” Kelly kissed Giffords when he was done. He grabbed her hand and helped her walk back to her seat. Susan Hileman, who was shot three times while trying to save her 9-yearold neighbor, shook as she spoke. “We’ve been told about your demons, about the illness that skewed your thinking,” she said. “Your parents, your schools, your community, they all failed you. It’s all true. It’s not enough.” Officials at Pima Community College had suspended Loughner over safety concerns after his classroom disruptions. They told him that if he wanted to return, he would have to get a mental health clearance. Loughner withdrew.

Meredith native, now naval officer, helping to interdict narcotics smuggling By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

MEREDITH — Operation Martillo is a multinational effort aimed at disrupting the use of coastal waterways in Central America as illicit trafficking routes. The effort includes partners from 14 countries, three branches of the U.S. Military and various law enforcement agencies. It also includes Brendan Poh, who grew up in Meredith and is now a lieutenant junior grade with the U.S. Navy. Poh, the son of Timothy and Diane Poh of Meredith, graduated from New Hampton High School in 2005 and, through the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps, earned a bachelor’s degree in religious studies from the College of the Holy Cross. Since his graduation from college in 2009, Poh has been a commissioned naval officer. He currently serves on the USS Curts, a 450-feet long guided-missile frigate. The USS Curts was built 30 years ago with the specialized task of hunting Soviet submarines. While the country today faces different threats to its national security, the Curts has found herself well-suited to finding and chasing down suspicious vessels, some of which are found to be transporting cocaine or marijuana to the United States, or cash or weapons to heading in the other direction. “My job is pretty demanding,” Poh said during an interview conducted via satellite phone. Poh, a junior department head in charge of three divisions, serves as a navigator on the warship. He helped navigate the USS Curtis from her port in San Diego to South America, where helicopters

or other aircraft scan the coastal waters for boats behaving suspiciously — typically, small boats travelling at high rates of speed. Once identified, a visit, board, search and seizure team from the USS Curts boards an inflatable vessel to make contact with the suspicious boat. “I have to get suited up to help out with that,” said Poh, a member of the board and search team. Armed with assault rifles and protected by body armor, Poh and his fellow team members make contact with the vessel and search for contraband. Twice he’s thwarted a shipment of drugs, likely headed for black markets in the United States.

Poh said the offending vessels can vary in size or appearance, but that they’re usually smaller than what one would expect to find operating in the ocean. Not much longer than 30 feet, sometimes as small as 15 feet, he said, “kind of like something you would imaging fishing on Lake Winnipesaukee with.” If the boaters are indeed transporting illicit materials, they make the “search” part of Poh’s job easy, ditching bales of plastic-wrapped narcotics as the Navy team approaches, a vain attempt to avoid prosecution. “They know they’re going to get caught, so they throw their drugs overboard,” he said. Poh is nearing the conclusion of his four-year commitment to the Navy, a commitment he made as part of the ROTC program that helped put him through college. Poh comes from a family with a strong tradition of military service — his father, brother and sister have all served. He plans to continue his service with a two-year shore tour in San Diego. “My time on the Curts has definitely been memorable,” said Poh. “You meet a lot of people, you learn a lot of memorable things,” he said, specifically referring to the different cultures he’s encountered at ports in Central and South America. After his shore tour, Poh isn’t certain where his career will take him next. However, he said, California is starting to feel like home. “I still miss New Hampshire, I miss the great times I had there. I’ve settled myself a little in the West Coast.”

We’re 2 countries now, not on speaking terms You know who won the election, and as I write I don’t. But whether Barack Obama is re-elected to a second term or Mitt Romney is elected the 45th president, the contours of their support during this fiercely fought campaign show that we live in Two Americas. The culturally cohesive America of the 1950s that some of us remember, usually glossing over racial segregation and the civil rights movement, is no longer with us and hasn’t been for some time. That was an America of universal media, in which everyone watched one of three similar TV channels and newscasts every night. Radio, 1930s and 1940s movies, and 1950s and early 1960s television painted a reasonably true picture of what was typically American. That’s not the America we live in now. Niche media has replaced universal media. One America listens to Rush Limbaugh; the other to NPR. Each America has its favorite cable news channel. As for entertainment, Americans have 100-plus cable channels to choose from, and the Internet provides many more options. Bill Bishop highlighted the political consequences of this in his 2008 book, “The Big Sort.” He noted that in 1976 only 27 percent of voters lived in counties carried by one presidential candidate by 20 percent or more. In 2004, nearly twice as many, 48 percent, lived in these landslide counties. That percentage may be even higher this year. We’re more affluent than we were in the 1950s (if you don’t think so, try doing without your air conditioning, microwaves, smartphones and Internet connections). And we have used this affluence to seal ourselves off in the America of our choosing while trying to ignore the other America. We tend to choose the America that is culturally congenial. Most people in the San Francisco Bay area wouldn’t consider living in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, even for much better money. Most Metroplexers would never relocate to the Bay Area. There are plenty of smart and creative and successful people in both Americas. But they don’t like to mix with each other these days. They especially don’t like to talk about politics and the cultural issues that, despite the prominence of economic concerns today, have largely determined our political allegiances over the last two decades. One America tends to be traditionally religious, personally charitable, appreciative of entrepreneurs and

suspicious of government. The other tends to be secular or only mildly religious, less charitable on average, skeptical of business and supportive of government as an instrument to advance liberal causes. The more conservative America tends to be relatively cohesive. Evangelical Protestants and white Catholics make common cause; the 17th century religious wars are over. Southern or Northern accents don’t much matter. That’s typical of the Republican Party, which has always had core support from people seen as typical Americans but who are not by themselves a majority in our always diverse country. The more liberal America tends to be diverse. Like Obama’s 2008 coalition, it includes many at the top and at the bottom of the economic ladder. That’s typical of the Democratic Party, a coalition of disparate groups — immigrant Catholics and white Southerners long ago, blacks and gentry liberals today. Ronald Reagan, speaking the language of the old, universal popular culture, could appeal to both Americas. His successors, not so much. Barack Obama, after an auspicious start, has failed to do so. As a result, there are going to be many Americans profoundly unhappy with the result of this election, whichever way it goes. Those on the losing side will be especially angry with those whose candidate won. Americans have faced this before. This has been a culturally diverse land from its colonial beginnings. The mid-20th century cultural cohesiveness was the exception, not the rule. We used to get along by leaving each other alone. The Founders established a limited government, neutral on religion, allowing states, localities and voluntary associations to do much of society’s work. Even that didn’t always work: We had a Civil War. An enlarged federal government didn’t divide mid-20th century Americans, except on civil rights issues. Otherwise, there was general agreement about the values government should foster. Now the Two Americas disagree, sharply. Government decisions enthuse one and enrage the other. The election may be over, but the Two Americas are still not on speaking terms.

LETTERS Our country has always had its issues but it’s still the greatest To the editor, With a divisive campaign behind us, it was not surprising that on Tuesday, the citizens of our country came out in record numbers to cast their vote, ensuring their voice was heard. I was fortunate enough during the election to have a few minutes to stand back and observe the voting process at Gilford Middle School. The gymnasium was a scene of bustling activity, from people waiting to hand in their ballots to voters filling out exit polls. Civility was present anywhere I looked; we, as a nation, take our right to vote very seriously. Yet, we enjoy the campaigns, debates, and voting, no matter how frustrating we find them. I was not the only one who observed this process. A lone teenager watched from a window above, while his classmates walked back and forth behind him. We set a wonderful example for him, a future voter, and during elections, we set an even better example for the rest of the world. With the election now behind us, we continue on. The following day, campaign workers were out removing campaigns signs from the roadsides throughout the Lakes Region. Despite our happiness from victories and our disappointments from losses, we accept them and move on. I learned how special our freedom and election process are from

my father, who was forced from his homeland during World War II. At the age of 19, he found himself homeless, fighting in a horrible war, eventually spending time in a P.O.W. camp. He never forgot how he found out the war had ended -— workers from the American Red Cross showed up at the camp with the two things that the prisoners were in dire need of — food and medical supplies. I’m sure this had quite a bit to do with the fact that he came to this country, became a citizen, worked here, and raised his family here. From him I learned the value of working hard for your family and for your country. He has since passed away, but I will never forget a conversation I had with him once when I was particularly frustrated with what I saw with the political world. He saw our country through the eyes of a man who had very personally experienced the results of what world leaders can do with their evil missions. At the end of an election that has divided us right down the middle, we need to remind ourselves about something my father said to me during our conversation: “Always remember, this country has always had its issues and problems, but America is still the greatest country in the world.” Carol Anderson Gilford

N.H. Republicans exorcised like demons from another time & space To the editor, Well, it is over. It was a nasty and tiresome election cycle but America’s majority beat the corporatists. They beat the religious right. They beat the tea party. They beat the “Citizen’s United” ruling. The Koch brothers spent 400 million and didn’t even get a tee-shirt! People saw the pathological lying and the distortions of the right wing hate machine and stuffed them in the garbage disposal where they belong. Their radical agenda is no longer recyclable so the next time the far right rears its ugly head, the people will recognize the smell right away. They will not be fooled by economic conservatives who have an extreme social and religious agenda that would make Mullah Omar beam

with pride. N.H. can teach us a lot because it changed so dramatically. 75 House seats! Exorcised like demons from another time and space! No more Ayatollah O’Brien sitting at the table with ALEC or the religious clerics to craft laws. No more bizarre unhinged behavior in Concord from Harry Accornero. The hate-laden trash talk and incivility was just too much for N.H. The Grand Outdated Party needs to return to the sanity that most Northeastern Republicans presented over the decades until the American Taliban and the corporate puppets took it over. Many of us were swing voters until Newt Gingrich’s shameful years on the hill. If we didn’t get it then, we see next page

The only time I use the word hate is when talking about winter

To the editor, Each year the Inter-Lakes High School Giving Tree strives to meet the Holiday needs of high school students in grades 9-12 and their families through school and community support. Last year, the Giving Tree helped 47 students at Christmas and 25 families were given Thanksgiving Baskets. The I-LHS Giving Tree is asking for community members, local organizations and businesses to participate in the program for this upcoming holiday season. Participation may include

To the editor, If Mr. Knightly thinks I am stepping away from being an American citizen utilizing the First Amendment because the socialists continue to be in charge, he does not know me at all. Has he ever been a candidate for office? Did he win? Did he say I used the word “hate” in addressing a thought about public and private unions? The one time one may hear the word hate from me in public will be my deep feelings about winter! I do believe labor unions tend to hold back employees who show such overwhelming promise in their work — for examples: educators. Why shouldn’t the best have the option of asking for a personal review to be rewarded for work beyond what was expected? Is the answer: we don’t promote competition among staff? That is what I was told by a teacher within the county. Merit Pay would create too much competition among the teachers

I may just as effective as a civilian & I won’t have to wear a tie To the editor, I wish to congratulate the winners of the District 2 State Rep. race: Colette Worsman, Lisa DiMartino, Herb Vadney, and Bob Greemore. While my candidacy ultimately was not successful, I have no regrets. No one wants to lose an election by just six votes but, I cannot think of a better man to lose to then my friend Bob Greemore. I am very appreciative of the 3,385 people who cast votes for me. I am proud that this “Glorified Trucker” was able to beat three well-respected Democrats who between them have 12 state rep.

races under their belts, and a indecisive selectman armed with a cellphone camera. This close defeat is actually a blessing as I now know that my family is growing once again and my time will better spent providing for their future. I will continue to actively advocate for taxpayers, making recommendations for common-sense government reforms on my own schedule. I may be just as effective as a “civilian” . . . plus I will not be required to wear a tie. Kevin Leandro Gilford

People in soup kitchens vote for people who will help them To the editor, Thankfully it’s over! If some of the money that was spent for signs, mail, calls and TV was given to the soup kitchens instead of being thrown in the trash there would be a lot more food on the soup kitchen shelves. Did anyone who ran for office think of the hungry and homeless? I never heard any of them say so, and I never saw any of them come to the soup kitchens either. Believe it or not they vote too! There’s a mixture of people who eat at the soup kitchens. Some come because they hate to eat alone, others because their food stamps have been

cut way down. Other people have no job or don’t have a place to live, or just got out of prison. Some come because they have spent their money gambling. But no matter the reason, they are still voters and they will vote and have voted for the people they believe will help them. To get a job; to get off the street; to care about them and donate to the food kitchen so they can eat. Politics is not just for the rich! It’s time for the rich to realize that and help out the 47 percent Romney doesn’t care about. Diana Field Franklin

from preceding page caught on with the emergence of the tea party. They are not fit for governance in a free and compassionate society of equals because they care for neither. There was a day when conservatism meant cautious advance and careful change but now it means

epic naivete and intolerance in both the economic and social realms. Pragmatism is a thing of the past with the radical right. Congratulations N.H. for exceeding many expectations! James Veverka Tilton


— that is sad! If Tony Boutin supports the Right To Work, then he has supporter in me. We do not have a chance of our citizens who would like to work in a union shop and have the skills to be so much better than the current union employees, of negotiating a starting salary with the owner of the company. Good person lost, and mediocrity continues. Knightly says he caught a few minutes of my program, first he is fibbing about “hate”, and second, why not listen more often, and prove me wrong. Shameful? What is shameful is Americans voted for socialism. And my grandchildren will have to pay for theirs and Barack Hussein Obama’s actions/desire to change this once great country. BHO does not believe in compromise, so don’t give me that. Niel Young Laconia

Many people to thank for success of Pleasant Street Fall Festival To the editor, On October 27th, Pleasant Street School held its annual Fall Festival with the hearty goal of raising funds to support the children of PSS. We are writing to thank the many individuals and businesses within the community that helped make our event this year a huge success. A larger than life thank you to all the area businesses that donated items for our raffle table and concession stand. The impact of having over 50 great raffle prizes and a food-filled concession stand at no cost to us is immeasurable. A big thanks to all of our PSS bakers, the bake table was a huge success due to the never-ending sea of homemade items, yummy! We also want to extend our appreciation to the Laconia Fire Department for bringing not one but two of their engines to the festival. Seeing the

huge ladder extended high into the sky was a sight that brought both awe and excitement to kids big and small. Another great big thank you goes out to Officer Cardinal from the Laconia Police Department, the smiles on the faces of the children sitting in the police car were priceless and really took this event to the community level we were hoping for. Last but not least without the people that donated their time to help run this event, it would have never had the success it did. So to the families that donated prizes and funds to keep our costs down, to the school staff, parents, grandparents and PSS alumni that kept all aspects of the festival running smoothly, and to everyone that brought their families to experience what a special day it was, thank you, thank you, thank you! See y’all next year! Pleasant Street School VIPSS

LETTERS Words cannot repay what we owe you veterans, but thank you!

I will do my best to be available & transparent to my constituents

To the editor, Since we became an independent country, many years have come and gone but there is one constant that remains from the 1700’s through today. Our country has had many brave men and women volunteer to defend our country. There was a movie produced about World War II, whose name I cannot recall, but at the end there is a line which rings true (even though the words are not an exact quote), “Where do we get these brave men and women to always step forward when the need arises?” These men and women come from all over our country and too many times are taken for granted. Men and women, who during times of war and peace, are on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week and spend countless holidays, birthdays and special events away from their family and friends. The pay is not great, but they continue to volunteer and many make it a career. They are mothers, fathers, aunts,

To the editor, I would like to offer a sincere thank you to all the folks who supported our campaign for the NH House of Representatives in Belknap District 8 — Alton, Barnstead, and Gilmanton. Although it was not a stellar day for New Hampshire Republicans, Belknap Districts 5 & 8 demonstrated conservative values do indeed matter. Our decisive win proved trust in those conservative values can offer a successful election. We offered an open and honest dialogue with constituents and were rewarded with solid numbers at the polls. Thank you for your support. As your elected official, I will do my very best to be available and transparent in ALL duties as a member of the N.H. House of Representatives. We will hold monthly “Meet & Greets” and I will be most communicative regarding happenings at the

uncles, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, cousins and friends. We may not always agree in the wars and battles that we fight, but this should not deter us from the support we give to these men and women in uniform. It is through the sacrifice that they and the numerous individuals before them have made, which provides us with the freedoms we have to disagree and speak our objections. While words cannot pay what we owe you and your families, we ‘thank you’ for your sacrifice. To the families who have lost loved ones, we offer our most heartfelt condolences. Many of us have never endured the pain you must feel, but our hearts hurt for your loss and wish we could help ease your pain. Let us never forget the people who did not make it home. Remember those still serving in our prayers and never take for granted the sacrifices they make. In closing, one more time I would like to say. . . THANK YOU! Blue Star Mothers of N.H.

I have asked Sec. of State for recount of votes in House District 3 To the editor, In Laconia, the pool of voters voting for Laconia’s four representatives, was identical for all of the four seats available in “Belknap District 3” (Belknap District 3, is Laconia). The pool of voters voting for one of those candidates was identical, to the voters, voting for each of the other four candidates. All four Republican candidates for representative ran similar races. All four Republican candidates were attacked in essentially identical ways about the record of the 2011-2012 (Republican) Legislature. On the Republican side, among the four Republican candidates there was approximately a 500 vote swing between the two higher vote getting Republican C\candidates and the two lower vote getting Republican candidates — a 500 vote swing coming

from identically the same voters? With two times 500 being a total of a thousand votes. On the other side, all four Democratic candidates ran essentially identical races. On the Democratic side, one candidate had essentially a thousand more votes than any of the other three Democrats, and all of that thousand vote difference in voting coming from the same identical voters? On the basis of those two extreme swings of votes, today, (Nov. 12), I asked the Secretary of State to conduct a recount of the races for representative in Belknap District 3. Recounts are one of the ways used to find mistakes. In problems involving voting, the Secretary of State handles mistakes, and mistakes, only. Representative Robert Kingsbury Laconia

TOWN OF NEW HAMPTON PLANNING BOARD November 20, 2012 7:00 PM - at the Town Office Meeting Room 6 Pinnacle Hill Road, New Hampton, NH 1. Roll Call 2. Minutes

NH House. There will be plenty of information flowing, and our website, will let you know of important upcoming legislation and/or events. It is my personal belief we are heading for some real challenges and changes in New Hampshire’s future. But never forget, there are those of us in the N.H. House and Senate who believe in the Constitution and all it stands for. We will do our best to hold the line in its defense, and try to keep our promise to constituents for NO N.H. income tax, indeed no NEW taxes in this time of wildly growing government and fiscal insanity. I, for one, promise to be truthful and energized as your elected representative in Concord. God Bless N.H. and God Bless the United States of America. Jane Cormier Alton

Out of site of the public, an eyesore remains upright in Lakeport To the editor, Wednesday’s paper had yet another story relative to the Wide Open Saloon. In the continuing saga, the Baldi’s allegedly buried at least some of the building debris. The city is right on top of this burned out building perhaps because it is in a “tourist” location and it might turn them away from the Weirs. There is another building in Laconia — at the corner of Sheridan and School Streets — that may be an older burn but really has not been

addressed as the eyesore that it is. Out of the eyes of the public, it sits gutted out, and causes blight on the rest of the neighborhood. One can only assume that the owners had fire insurance on the building itself and have perhaps used it for other purposes while the neighborhood has to endure their wreck of a building. When is the City of Laconia going to take action on this building? Will a petition by the local residents help? Earlon Beale Laconia

The only thing missing Obama’s America will be freedom To the editor, Are we headed over a fiscal cliff? Not to worry, everything will be fine. Just ask President Obama and half the nation who just voted him back into office. We have everything to look “forward” too. We will have free birth control, unlimited abortions, free food stamps, unlimited Pell Grants, ObamaCare, amnesty for all who want to cross our unprotected boarders, and that includes those radical Muslims, who just walk into our country.

Barack Hussein Obama will foot the whole bill. Honest, he has a treasure chest filled with trillions of dollars. Why in the past four years he only spent five trillion, there is plenty left over and it’s all free, we won’t have to pay back any of it! The only thing that will be missing is “Freedom” but that’s over rated anyhow. Who needs it? Just ask any liberal and they will tell you that the government will take care of us!

GALE from page one ger one that would offer the school for sale for one year and, if it didn’t sell, to allow the district to tear it down. Chair Preston Tuthill recalled the last time the school district brought forward a warrant article that called for selling the school for $1 with the district paying for the relocation. “It never made it to annual meeting. We got crucified at the public hearing,” he said. According the the Belmont Heritage Committee Website, the Gale School was built in 1894. After construction it was named after Napoleon B. Gale who left $10,000 to the town. The remainder of Mr. Gale’s estate was left to the city of Laconia and used to construct and fund the Gale Memorial Library. Mr. Gale represented Belmont residents in the N.H. State Legislature during 1867 and 1868.

The school sits on the hill behind the Middle School, at the western edge of Bryant Field. According to Tuthill, the insides have been re-mediated for hazardous waste. Tuthill said the estimated cost to move and refurbish the Gale School was about $1 million at least four or five years ago. He said it would cost about $250,000 to tear it down and remove the debris. Vice Chair Heidi Hutchinson of Canterbury said she doesn’t want to see the building destroyed but does want the district voters to know that the board is still considering its options. Dreyer said she thought she could get the information from the specialty realtor before the December 6 school board meeting. Tuthill added the Gale School to the next meeting agenda.

CO from page one Erickson said owner Dwight Barton came to the building and, without telling firefighters, went into the basement and turned off the furnace. When firefighters entered the basement, they found carbon monoxide levels to be 160 parts-per-million — a level that can cause immediate vomiting and dizziness and is fatal after about an hour. With the furnace shut down, firefighters were able to ventilate the building and, after an hour, residents were allowed to return. Deputy Fire Chief Charles Roffo inspected the heating system yesterday morning and determined the new

furnace had been set on high-heat but the old chimney was inadequate to handle the pressure and a seal blew out causing the furnace to partially vent into the basement. Erickson said Barton is working with fire officials to remedy the situation. Erickson added that as of January 2013, all multi-family buildings in New Hampshire will be required to have carbon-monoxide detectors. Shipp said he wanted to thank Roderick for alerting the fire department, saying the carbon monoxide levels would likely have risen through the night and had she not notified the fire department, there could have been a more serious outcome.

PLANE from page 2 facility. Ten minutes later, he made a 180-degree turn. Air traffic control tried to contact Hassinger several

times, but there was no response. An examination of the plane afterward showed the landing gear wasn’t down.

LETTER from page 8 brave Americans who were slaughtered at our consulate in Libya received the help they needed, right? I can’t wait to hear Michelle Obama say how, for “second time” in her life, she can be proud to be an American. In addition, their friend and reverend of 20 years can once again say “God

Bless America” instead of “God ***” America.” Remember the liberal way, it’s not “what you can do for your country”, it’s “what your country can do for you”, just ask Obama. Linda Dupere Campton

Gilford tax rate dips 25¢

GILFORD — The Department of Administration has set the 2012 Gilford property tax rate at $18.30, which is 1.4 percent less that the 2011 rate of $18.55. The local education rate is $9.21 and decrease of 1.5 percent from the 2011 rate of $9.35. The local part of the rate remained the same at $4.93 and the Belknap

County rate decreased 3.9 percent from $1.53 in 2011 to $1.47 in 2012. The state-wide property tax used to fund education adequacy dropped from $2.74 to $2.69 or 1.8 percent. Town Administrator Scott Dunn said he expects tax bills to be in the mail within a week with a due date of around December 17. — Gail Ober

NHBB from page one present a $10,000 gift from the foundation, a gesture reflecting the close relationship the company has with the tech center. The gift will join others made to the growing total school and community officials hope will reach $1-million, as a private supplment to the public money being spent on the project. The gift was as pragmatic as it was charitable, Groleau explained. As the city’s second-largest employer, New Hampshire Ball Bearings requires applicants that have a combination of technical skills and academic knowledge within the STEM family of studies. “Skilled labor is conspicuously absent,” Groleau said. With the expansion of STEM programs and improvement in equipment being undertaken at the Huot Technical Center, he foresaw the ability for his company to hire local graduates for jobs that pay well and offer opportunities for advancement. “These are the kinds of programs needed to supply that pipeline of employment,” he said. One of the developments that excite Groleau is the intertwining of the applied sciences, as taught at the technical center, with the academic programs in the high school’s college preparatory curricula. “I see the science labs as a natural transition to the traditional academic world,” he said, calling it “a template for the whole state to follow.” Chris Ennis, assistant principal at Laconia Middle School, serves on a region-wide STEM committee, dedicated to the promotion of technical sciences among students. Middle schoolers are offered enrichment programs such as robotic, environmental science and a rocket club. “It’s about getting kids to see what’s out there and get excited about it,” Ennis said. Once those students leave the middle school, the hope is that they’ll

carry their excitement for STEM into more advanced opportunities, be it in the manufacturing program, physics classes, or both. Groleau, who served on the committee that planned the Huot Center’s expansion, said students who graduate from the program will be qualified applicants for preengineering positions or design and manufacturing jobs at New Hampshire Ball Bearings. They’d also benefit from relationships, especially Project Running Start, between the Laconia School District and Lakes Region Community College, which allow students to earn college credits while still in high school. As the company has with the city’s school district, New Hampshire Ball Bearings has consulted with the community college to develop a manufacturing program that will produce graduates ready for local employment. “In manufacturing, the model is very vertical,” said Groleau, noting that New Hampshire Ball Bearings will provide financial support for employees who wish to pursue further education, which in turn might lead to a promotion. “There’s an awful lot of opportunity,” he said, but it isn’t currently easy to find qualified candidates for openings. The company is holding an open house on Saturday, from noon to 3 p.m., to try and entice applications from engineers and machinists. “There’s a tremendous skills gap... Recruiting is a real challenge.” Within a few years, though, he hoped many local graduates would be able to fill those positions. “Brain power is the major currency of the 21st Century,” said Groleau. “This place is paying big dividends.” Donation opportunities are outlined on the School District website.

OBAMA from page 2 spending. Obama ended the longstanding U.S. isolation of Myanmar’s generals, which has played a part in coaxing them into political reforms that have unfolded with surprising speed in the past year. The U.S. has appointed a full ambassador and suspended sanctions to reward Myanmar for political prisoner releases and Suu Kyi’s election to parliament. In a statement, White House press secretary Jay Carney said Obama intended to “speak to civil society to encourage Burma’s ongoing democratic transition.” A procession of senior diplomats and world leaders have traveled to the country, stopping both in the remote, opulent capital city Naypyitaw, built by the former ruling junta, and at Suu

Kyi’s dilapidated lakeside villa in the main city Yangon, where she spent 15 years under house arrest. The East Asia Summit in Cambodia will also provide Obama with opportunities for possible sideline discussions with a number of fellow heads of state, including leaders such as outgoing Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao. Also expected to attend are Russian President Vladimir Putin and Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda. “The Myanmar trip is potentially historic, and for that reason has both tremendous opportunity and risk associated with,” said Matthew Goodman, a former Obama international economics adviser.But the East Asia Summit, he added, is also important “as an opportunity to reaffirm U.S. engagement as an Asia-Pacific power in regional affairs.

public office, 12,760 to 12,127. Leonard bested Cataldo five of the six wards in Rochester to carry the city by 778 votes, while Cataldo swept all five towns in the district — New Durham, Farmington, Gilmanton, Barnstead and Alton. Cataldo outsee next page

GOP from page one ner margin. When he won the seat two years ago, Guinta carried Laconia and all seven towns in the district to capture 60-percent of the county’s share of the district’s vote. This year, when the presidential election increased the number of ballots cast by 70-percent, Guinta again carried Laconia, but lost three of the nine towns — Barnstead New Hampton and Tilton — by a total of 154 votes to again carry the county but by 1,221 votes out of 30,769 cast, or 52-percent. Nearly two-thirds of Guinta’s margin of victory was contributed by Alton, where he won by 787 votes. In the contest for governor, Democrat Maggie Hassan outpolled Republican Ovide Lamontagne in all 10 counties, but in none by a narrower margin than her 1,054 vote win in Belknap County. Nevertheless, Hassan carried the city of Laconia and nine of the 10 towns in the county while Lamontagne took only the GOP stronghold of Alton,1,966 to 1,320. With the redistricting of the New Hampshire Senate, the eleven municipalities of Belknap County were spread among three Senate districts. The city of Laconia and towns of Belmont and Gilford represented more than half the ballots cast in District 7, where Democrat Andrew Hosmer topped Republican Josh Youssef. Carrying all six wards, Hosmer took Laconia 4,257 to 3,101, capturing 69-percent of the vote, as well as Belmont and Gilford . District 2, where incumbent Republican Jeanie Forrester overcame the challenge of Democrat Bob Lamb, includes Center Harbor, Meredith, Sanbornton and Tilton, which accounted for almost 30-percent of the ballots cast in the race. Forrester carried all four towns by a total of 1,316 votes. Alton, Barnstead and Gilmanton were incorporated into District 6,

which was won by Republican Sam Cataldo, who beat Democrat Richard Leonard in a close race by 633 votes, 12,760 to 12,127. Cataldo topped Leonard in all three of the towns in Belknap County and his 793 vote margin in Alton ensured his victory. After being shut out of all 18 seats in the New Hampshire House of Representatives by the Republicans in 2010, Democrats won five this year, matching the number they captured in 2008. Democrat Ruth Gulick won the open seat in District 1 (New Hampton and Center Harbor). Democrat Lisa DiMartino polled the second highest number of votes to take one of four seats in District 2 (Meredith and Gilford). Democrat David Huot won one of four seats in District 3 (Laconia). Democrat Ian Raymond won one of two seats in District 4 (Sanbornton and Tilton). And Democrat Beth Arsenault won the seat in District 9 (Laconia and Belmont). Seven incumbent Republicans were reelected — Colette Worsman and Bob Greemore in District 2, Don Flanders, Bob Luther and Frank Tilton in District 3 , Dennis Fields in District 4 and Guy Comtois in District 7 (Barnstead). Only two incumbent Republicans — Harry Accornero and Bob Kingsbury , both of Laconia— were ousted. Republicans won open seats in District 5 (Alton and Gilmanton), District 6 (Belmont) and District 8 (Alton, Barnstead and Gilmanton) to retain a majority of more than two-to-one on the Belknap County delegation. Although Obama did not match his performance of 2008, Shea-Porter ran stronger this year than in 2010 while Hassan, despite her relatively weak showing, carried the county. Together with the heavy turnout, there was enough pull from the top of the ticket to enable Democrats to reverse most of the losses they suffered in 2010 by capturing one state Senate seat as well as five House seats.

MTBE from page 2 Thursday afternoon. A trial against remaining defendants is scheduled to start in Concord on Jan. 7, 2013. They are Exxon/Mobil Corporation, Irving Oil Co., Citgo Petroleum, ConocoPhillips Co., and Vitol S.A. The state is seeking damages to perform comprehensive investigation and remediation of MTBE contamination sites. “We must ensure that our public waters remain clean and safe for the benefit of all our citizens,” Delaney said. He called the settlement “a substantial recovery that will be used to clean up contaminated groundwaters throughout New Hampshire.” At the time the lawsuit was filed, some of the oil companies said when used as intended, MTBE is safe and effective, and the problem was with leaking gasoline storage tanks. MTBE, or methyl tertiary butyl

ether, is a petroleum-based additive that has been used in gasoline since the 1970s to increase octane and reduce smog-causing emissions. Since 1990, it had been used widely in states with air quality problems to satisfy a federal requirement that gasoline contains 2 percent oxygen. While it was credited for cutting air pollution, MTBE was found in the late 1990s to contaminate drinking water supplies when gasoline is spilled or leaks into surface or groundwater. A number of states found MTBE in groundwater near leaking gasoline storage tanks and water agencies reported MTBE found in drinking water supplies, although in most cases concentrations did not exceed EPA advisory levels. The additive has been banned in a number of states, including New Hampshire, which has had a ban in effect since 2007.

Forrester carried 22 of 27 towns in win over Lamb

MEREDITH — “I’m looking forward to getting things done,” said Jeanie Forrester of Meredith, the day after she withstood a challenge from Democrat Bob Lamb of Holderness to keep her seat in State Senate District 2. With the results from all 27 towns in Belknap, Grafton and Merrimack counties accounted for, Forrester won with 14,943 votes to 12,680 for Lamb, a margin of eight-percent. Forrester carried 22 towns, including Meredith by 889 votes and Haverhill by 592 votes, easily offsetting Lamb’s 757 vote edge in Plymouth. When Forrester won the seat in 2010 it encompassed 31 towns. With redistricting the district dropped nine towns and added five new ones. Nevertheless, the advantage of incumbency rested on from preceding page polled Leonard in Alton by 793 voters, 1,965 to 1,172, to provide his final margin of victory. When Dick Green, a former mayor of Rochester who served three terms in the state Senate as well as director of the division of economic development at the New Hampshire Department of Resources and Economic Development and executive director of the Pease Development Authority, entered the Republican primary, the New Hampshire Democratic Party all but conceded the seat. However, when Cataldo upset Green in the primary Leonard stepped up to run a very competitive race.

familiarity with 22 of the 27 towns, all of which Forrester had frequented during her first campaign and again during her first term. She said that she learned from longtime Executive Councilor Ray Burton that “the job of a senator is not only to make law, but also to be an advocate for the communities you represent.” Forrester said that with the House controlled by the Democratic majority and the Senate divided between 13 Republicans and 11 Democrats the Legislature will require a greater measure of collaboration and cooperation to succeed. She believes that her experience with Main Street programs and as a town administrator will equip her to work well in the changed environment. “What a great election for our country and our state,” said Lamb, marveling at the number of people who cast ballots. “I’m very pleased,” he remarked of his first bid for office. “I loved the process, worked very hard and ran a competitive race. I’m a much better informed person,” he continued. “I’m very grateful to the voters of the district.” Lamb said he intended to remain active without he Plymouth Area Democrats, but as yet has not given any thought to the next election. ­—­Michael­Kitch

DENVER (AP) — Omayra Vasquez blinks and does a double take when asked why she voted to reelect President Barack Obama. The reason for her was as natural as breathing. “I feel closer to him,” said Vasquez, a 43-year-old Federal Express worker from Denver. “He cares about the Spanish people.” Millions of Hispanic voters seconded that emotion Tuesday with resounding 71 percent support for Obama, tightening Democrats’ grip on the White House and putting Republicans on notice that they must seriously court the nation’s largest minority group if they want to win the presidency again. According to initial exit polls, Republican candidate Mitt Romney, who backed hard-line immigra-

tion measures, came away with 27 percent Hispanic support, less than any presidential candidate in 16 years. It also was a sharp drop from the 44 percent claimed by President George W. Bush in his 2004 re-election after he embraced immigration reform. “We could have won this election if the party had a better brand name with Hispanics,” said Al Cardenas, chairman of the American Conservative Union. “I don’t believe there’s a path to the White House in the future that doesn’t include 38 percent to 40 percent Hispanic support.” Cardenas said Hispanics were only a large part of a worrisome trend in the electorate, which is increasingly comprised of younger and minority voters who traditionally do not back Republicans. If the 1980 electorate looked like the 2012 version, he added, Jimmy Carter would have defeated Ronald Reagan. Matt Schlapp, who was political director of George W. Bush’s 2000 campaign, drew parallels between the GOP’s standing with Hispanics and the party’s troubles with African-Americans. “The idea that we would somehow copy that with the Hispanic community is troubling,” he said.

the roar of engines and seen stock cars racing around the pond in a cloud of flying snow and ice chips, this program offers the chance to discover “the rest of the story.” The club has been racing for over 30 years, and their Latchkey Cup race attracts hundreds of spectators who have donated thousands of dollars for the Norris Cotton Cancer Center.

Jane Rice signing books at Annie’s Book Stop Saturday

LACONIA — Author Jane Rice will be at Annie’s Book Stop in Laconia from 2-4 p.m. on Saturday, November 10 to sign copies of her recently released book, “Bob Fogg and New Hampshire’s Golden Age of Aviation.” Thanks to her father, Lyman Rice, and his many pilot friends, Jane Rice was exposed to the antique airplane hobby from a young age. There was a grass airstrip in the back yard and a variety of old airplanes in the hangar over the years, but although she never learned to fly, she has always been interested in the historical side of aviation, starting with Amelia Earhart and other early women pilots and moving on to investigate the history of the Weirs Seaplane Base, where her grandfather flew in the 1930s. She lived on Parade Road in Laconia, as a child, just up the hill from the Weirs, and some local readers may recall seeing airplanes parked in the yard where the Petal Pushers greenhouse is currently located. She graduated from Laconia High School and Nasson College in Springvale, Maine, and has

worked at the Moultonborough public library for twenty-nine years. Here is the story of Robert S. Fogg, the Granite State’s true pioneer of aviation, which includes many previously unpublished images of airplanes and aviators of the 1920s and 1930s. Bob Fogg brought aviation to Concord and the Weirs in the early ‘20s and he and his pilots introduced flying to a whole generation that grew up in that time period. For those interested in the history of the Lakes Region, it describes the seaplane base that was a prominent feature of the Weirs boardwalk from 1923 until the early 1950s, and the planes that hopped passengers from many lakeside resorts throughout New Hampshire. Classic Wacos, Travel Airs, Beech Staggerwings and Sikorsky amphibians that once plied the blue skies over Lake Winnipesauke come to life again in the pages of this fascinating history. Annie’s Book Stop is located at 1330 Union Avenue, next to Barton’s Motel.

When Aladdin gets a chance to meet the Princess and fulfill his dream, he is taken off the path by a bearded stranger who knows the secret of a lamp in Aladdin’s possession. Soon Aladdin knows the power of the lamp, but will that be enough to save the Princess, before she disappears forever?

Make a radio-controlled yacht this winter at the NH Boat Museum WOLFEBORO — People who like to work with their hands will have an opportunity to build their own radio controlled model yacht to sail with the New Hampshire Boat Museum’s Back Bay Skipper group next summer at a six-week course being offered by the museum which starts in January. The Back Bay Skippers were founded in 2008 and is a program of the New Hampshire Boat Museum. The members meet each Tuesday in Wolfeboro during the warm weather on Back Bay to competitively sail their radio controlled yachts which are 1 meter long (39 3/8”) and displace 10 lbs. This is a fun group of over 50 sailors and even more spectators. During the weekly session, participants will be taught how to build their model boat with the help of expert instructors. Everything needed is supplied in the cost of the workshop except the paint for the boat. The exact dates the course will meet will be determined by the group after signing up.

The cost to participate is $395 for the boat kit, radio system, and an administrative fee, or $230 for those who already own the radio system. Both prices include a one year museum membership. The deadline to sign up for this course in November 30 to allow the Museum to purchase the kits. Mark Whitehead, Chair of the Back Bay Skippers said,” This is an opportunity to have a world class yacht of your own without the expense and hassle of a full size boat. You will experience the same exhilaration as you would in a big boat, with the added bonus of getting to know a great group of new friends.” To learn more about the class contact Mark Whitehead at 539-4973 or People can also sign up on the Museum’s secure website at under the programs button. For further information contact the Museum at 603-569-4554, museum@, or via Facebook.

WOLFEBORO — Steve Arsenault, one of the finest climbers in the East, will present a program about his experiences at the Wolfeboro Public Library on Tuesday, November 13, at 6:30 p.m. The program includes a photographic tour including climbs in Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States. The program is free and open to all. Arsenault has done first ascents in New Hampshire, Australia, Canada and, in particular, Wyoming. He was the first New England climber to climb many of the big walls in Yosemite, including El Capitan. He put up a number of what are now considered to

be classic routes in the White Mountains. Early in his career as a climber, while on leave from Vietnam in 1969, Arsenault and a friend did a first ascent of VMC Direct Direct on Cannon Cliff. Recently he was asked to join a first ascent of a hard crack climb in Jackson. Arsenault has been climbing for 45 years and he continues to actively climb as he takes trips throughout the world each year. He makes his home in Wolfeboro. For more information call the Wolfeboro Public Library at 569-2428. The library is open Monday through Thursday, 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday and Saturday 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Detective work brings benefits. Poke around in a mess. What good are blessings in disguise if they never reveal themselves and no one makes the effort to recognize them? SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Though there’s a snappy pace to the proceedings, avoid speedy assumptions and judgments. Your neutrality will allow you to pick up on the nuances that others miss. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The result you want requires that you attract a certain someone’s attention. If you feel negative on the inside, it will be hard to radiate a noticeable aura. So the time you spend feeling good is well worth the effort. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll spend a good deal of time on a computer or other machine (SET ITAL) not (END ITAL) earning a fortune. Those who wonder why just don’t understand the love affair you have with your devices. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). What makes you an excellent friend is that you have been there for a person in her time of need, and yet you don’t expect the return favor. Good karma always comes back, and often from an unpredictable source. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (NOVEMBER 9). This month gives you a way to perform for people whose opinions matter to you. You could even make money at this. Your friendships will be diverse and interesting all year. Real love takes time, and you give it that time in December even though you’ll be busy. An investment in a project pays in May. Aries and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 50, 13, 24, 9 and 11.

by Chad Carpenter

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Helicopter parents have a hard time walking the fine line between helping a child out of actual necessity and overdoing it out of a perceived necessity. You’ll have your own version of a helicopter parent hovering over you today. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll be in an affectionate and demonstrative mood. Every time you express appreciation toward your loved one, he or she feels that much more love for you. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re willing to work hard for your family and/ or the people you have chosen to care about. Your sense of purpose is so strong through the weekend that the hard work feels more like a noble mission. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your ideas are good. Inviting collaboration will make them even better. Bounce your opinions off of someone with similar tastes and different talents. A Libra or Virgo person would be ideal. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Anyone who has ever tried to “pill a cat” can attest: Cats will fight you if you try to feed them anything unappealing. Your cat nature will emerge tonight when someone presents statements you find hard to swallow. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). With the moon in your sign, you don’t have to do much to gain support for your righteous efforts to make the environment as clean, nurturing and safe as possible. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Do you really have an obligation to be original? After all, what you do within a group is amazingly effective today. Still, the answer is yes. Adding your personal signature will be crucial to the success of all.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, Nov. 9, the 314th day of 2012. There are 52 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 9, 1938, Nazis looted and burned synagogues as well as Jewish-owned stores and houses in Germany and Austria in a pogrom that became known as “Kristallnacht.” On this date: In 1620, the passengers and crew of the Mayflower sighted Cape Cod. In 1872, fire destroyed nearly 800 buildings in Boston. In 1918, it was announced that Germany’s Kaiser Wilhelm II would abdicate. He then fled to the Netherlands. In 1952, Chaim Weizmann, the first president of Israel, died. In 1953, Welsh author-poet Dylan Thomas died in New York at age 39. In 1961, U.S. Air Force Maj. Robert M. White became the first pilot to fly an X-15 rocket plane at six times the speed of sound. The Beatles’ future manager, Brian Epstein, first saw the group perform at The Cavern Club in Liverpool, England. In 1963, twin disasters struck Japan as some 450 miners were killed in a coal-dust explosion, and about 160 people died in a train crash. In 1965, the great Northeast blackout occurred as a series of power failures lasting up to 13½ hours left 30 million people in seven states and part of Canada without electricity. In 1967, a Saturn V rocket carrying an unmanned Apollo spacecraft blasted off from Cape Kennedy on a successful test flight. In 1970, former French President Charles de Gaulle died at age 79. In 1976, the U.N. General Assembly approved resolutions condemning apartheid in South Africa, including one characterizing the white-ruled government as “illegitimate.” In 1989, communist East Germany threw open its borders, allowing citizens to travel freely to the West; joyous Germans danced atop the Berlin Wall. One year ago: After 46 seasons as Penn State’s head football coach and a record 409 victories, Joe Paterno was fired along with the university president, Graham Spanier, over their handling of child sex abuse allegations against former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky. Republican presidential rivals, debating in Rochester, Minn., warned the United States could be doomed to the same sort of financial crisis that was afflicting Europe unless federal deficits were drastically cut and the economy somehow revived. Taylor Swift won her second entertainer of the year award at The Country Music Association Awards. Today’s Birthdays: Baseball Hall of Famer Whitey Herzog is 81.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, November 9, 2012— Page 23


Dear Annie: I often feel sharp bites like pinpricks on different places of my body, especially at night. At first, it happened only in the bedroom, but now I get them while sitting in my family room and even in my car. I thought it might be bedbugs, but an exterminator ruled that out. He said he had no idea what was causing the bites and couldn’t help. A second exterminator told me the same thing, so I was really disappointed in them. But the bites are becoming worse. I’m not imagining them, because other members of my family have experienced the bites, as well. We cannot see the bugs, but we know we are being bitten. It is unpleasant living this way, and we certainly don’t want to spread the problem to others. I am so frustrated that we cannot get this diagnosed and treated. Can you tell us where to turn? -- Twice Bitten Dear Bitten: In many states, it is illegal for exterminators to apply pesticides without knowing the type of bug they are targeting. Talk to your doctor, and also see a dermatologist to find out whether you have physical evidence of bites and can identify the culprits. Some doctors consider “invisible bugs” to be psychological in origin, but there are plenty of tiny mites that cannot easily be seen. You may also have an infection or allergy. Have you made any changes to your environment (new shampoo, soap or detergent, recent gardening, getting a pet)? Wash all your clothes, sheets, towels, etc., in hot, soapy water and put them in the dryer. Seal blankets and other items in plastic bags. Clean the floors and carpets. And now we’re going to do the same because your letter made us itchy. Dear Annie: I have given baby showers for each of my close friends. However, these same friends are now expecting showers for their second and third kids, too. I believe every child is a reason for celebration. But I find it

tacky for them to think everyone should attend another large baby shower within two years. I am happy to visit the mother and baby after the child is born and bring a gift. But has etiquette changed so much that there are multiple baby showers within the same family? -- Still Friends Dear Still: No, etiquette has not changed that much. The intent of a baby shower is to welcome the new child into the world and provide necessary items for the child’s care. With subsequent births, those items can be handed down, making another shower unnecessary. However, it is OK to have a second shower if the guest list is small and limited to family, very close friends and those not invited to the first one. Also, it’s OK if there is a large gap between births (making hand-me-downs less likely) or a couple has moved to a new city with new friends. And some friends host a “shower” for the overwhelmed parents, which is also fine. Of course, whether or not to participate is entirely up to you. Dear Annie: I read a response to “Disappointed in Ohio,” who complained that the husband of one of her friends kept attending their regular all-girl get-togethers. I am part of a small group of women who worked at a bank together 60 years ago. We have been having lunch for several years. One of the women developed Alzheimer’s and lives in a care facility. When she could no longer drive to our lunches, her husband brought her to the restaurant and picked her up when we were done. After a while, we invited him to stay. We enjoy his company. Sometimes another friend’s husband comes along, and the two men eat at a separate table and visit, leaving us to have our “girl chat.” I have a feeling that when his wife can no longer come, we will still invite him to join us. -- Omaha

A faithful adaptation of Mark Twain’s famous novel, Big River was written in 1984 and has a score by Roger Miller, the king of country music. The original production won seven Tony Awards including Best Musical. It follows the story of Huck Finn and runaway slave Jim, as they travel the Mississippi to gain Jim’s freedom. It includes favorite characters like The Widow and Miss Watson, Tom Sawyer, Pap Finn, and The King and The Duke. This will be the largest production the Winni Players has ever undertakenand it encourages participants of all ages and levels of experience to come join the fun. Auditions will take place at the education building on the Playhouse’s Meredith Campus at 50 Reservoir Road. Auditioners need only attend one of the audition dates. Kids who are interested in auditioning should come prepared to sing one minute of a traditional musical theatre song (not

contemporary and please not from Big River). They may be asked to learn a short dance piece at the audition.
