Gilford moves to evict long-term tenants from ‘hotel’ BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

GILFORD — Town officials are taking the first steps toward evicting tenants of the Paugus Bay Plaza Condominiums at 131 Lake Street whose stays exceed the terms of the municipal zoning ordinance and unit owners’ deeds. Code Enforcement Officer Dave Andrade this week ordered David Akridge, presi-

dent of the Paugus Bay Condominium Association, to remove the tenant from the unit he owns within seven days or face penalties, including legal fees, court costs and a $275 fine for each day the tenant has lived in the unit beyond the 30 days permitted by the ordinance. Andrade said yesterday that he has found a handful of similar cases, including at least one tenant with a long-term lease, and anticipates more cease and desist

orders will be forthcoming. It is ironic that Akridge was the first unit owner to be sited since as president of the condominium association he reminded the members of the restrictions on their units in a letter dated December 15, 2011. “We can say affirmatively,” the minutes record, “that the leasing of your individual unit for an extended duration is in violation of the see HOTEL page 12

LACONIA — Barring lengthy litigation, the redistricting plan adopted by the New Hampshire Senate last week will serve as the playing field for the general election in November. And for the first time in many years Laconia, which has not returned one of its own to the Senate since 1958, will find itself in a radically redrawn district. Two cities, Laconia and Franklin, are joined with eight towns — Andover, Belmont, Boscawen, Canterbury, Gilford, Northfield, Salisbury and Webster — to form District 7. Only see SENATE page 10

‘Kidnapped’ off streets of Boston, college students get free snowboarding lessons at Gunstock BY ROGER AMSDEN FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

biggest challenge. So we decided to go and ‘kidnap’ a few students and bring them up here for the day,’’ joked Bill Quigley, Gunstock’s marketing director. He said that the three students had big plans for Thursday but completely revised their plans when they learned about the DEALS (Drop Everything and Learn Skiing or Snowboarding) promotion that Gunstock was running at City Place in Boston in cooperation with the Boston area radio station, The River 92.5. see GUNSTOCK page 10

LACONIA — The owner of a Lakeport pawn shop has pleaded guilty to one count of receiving stolen property. Court records show Ralph Alexander, 52, of 169 Sheridan St., the owner of Curbside Treasures, was fined $1,000 with $750 of it suspended and also ordered to pay a $60 fee. Alexander must also pay $100 in restitution to the Police Department and be on good behavior for six months. In statements written just after his arrest, police said they learned from confidential informants that Alexander would purchase stolen goods — ranging from jewelry to tools — and sell the outside the city. Police said he willingly bought goods he knew were stolen yet completed a written statement saying he never purchased stolen property. Two other charges of sworn falsification (lying to police) and violation for failing to report purchased item to police were not prosecuted.

Obama lets 10 states flee ‘No Child Left Behind’

WASHINGTON (AP) — It could be the beginning of the end for No Child Left Behind. The goal was lofty: Get all children up to par in math and reading by 2014. But the nation isn’t getting there, and now some states are getting out. In a sign of what’s to come, President Barack Obama on Thursday freed 10 states from some of the landmark law’s toughest requirements. Those states, which had to commit to their own, federally approved plans, will now be free, for example, to judge students with methods other than test scores. They also will be able to factor in subjects beyond reading and math. “We can combine greater freedom with greater accountability,” Obama said from the White House. Plenty more states are bound to take him up on the offer. While many educators and many governors celebrated, congressional Republicans accused Obama of executive overreach, and education and civil rights groups questioned if schools would see NO CHILD page 8

Government reaches $24B settlement over foreclosure abuses WASHINGTON (AP) — A landmark $25 billion settlement with the nation’s top mortgage lenders was hailed by government officials Thursday as long-overdue relief for victims of foreclosure abuses. But consumer advocates countered that far too few people will benefit. The deal will reduce loans for only a fraction of those Americans who owe more than their homes are worth. It will also send checks to others who were improperly foreclosed upon. But the amounts are modest.

It’s unclear how much the deal will help struggling homeowners keep their homes or benefit those who have already lost theirs. About 11 million households are underwater, meaning they owe more than their homes are worth. The settlement would help 1 million of them. “The total number of dollars is still small compared to the value of the mortgages that are underwater,” said Richard Green, director of the University of Southern Cali-

fornia’s Lusk Center for Real Estate. Federal and state officials announced that 49 states joined the settlement with five of the nation’s biggest lenders. Oklahoma struck a separate deal with the five banks. Government officials are still negotiating with 14 other lenders to join. The bulk of the money will go to California and Florida, two of the states hardest hit by the housing crisis and the ones with the most underwater homeowners. The see MORTGAGE page 13

CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire is getting $43.6 million under a settlement among 49 states and the five largest mortgage lenders over foreclosure abuses. Attorney General Michael Delaney said at a news conference Thursday that about two-thirds of New Hampshire mortgages are held by the five banks in the settle-

ment: Bank of America, Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo and GMAC/ Ally Financial. About $4.5 million, Delaney said, will provide lump sum payments of about $1,800 to homeowners who were foreclosed on by those five banks after Jan. 1, 2008. But the lion’s share of the money — $19

million — will be used to help struggling homeowners stay in their homes by reducing their principal balance if their mortgages are held by the five banks. “At least 60 percent must be allocated to reduce the principle of borrowers who are in default or who are at serious risk of see SETTLEMENT page 13

BRUSSELS (AP) — Just hours after Greece gave in to painful new job and spending cuts, European ministers declared Thursday that Athens didn’t go far enough and demanded more within a week in exchange for a €130 billion ($170 billion) bailout to stave off bankruptcy. The ministers gave the debt-ridden country until the middle of next week to find an extra €325 million ($430 million) in savings, pass the cuts through a divided parliament, and get written guarantees

that they will be implemented even after the elections of a new government in April, said Jean-Claude Juncker, the Luxembourg prime minister who chaired Thursday’s meeting of finance chiefs of the 17 euro countries. The new austerity plan, which makes sharp cuts to the minimum wage and thousands of public-sector jobs, ignited fresh criticism from unions and the country’s deputy labor minister, who resigned in protest after Greece agreed to the deal.

Even debt inspectors conceded that the new measures would keep the country in a recession for a fifth straight year. But Greece’s finance minister warned that the alternative will likely be worse. “Unfortunately the choice we face is one of sacrifice or even greater sacrifice — on a scale that cannot be compared,” Evangelos Venizelos told reporters, after the meeting with ministers from the 16 other countries that use the euro.

Modified ‘right-to-work’ bill back before lawmakers CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire legislation curtailing union powers that Democratic Gov. John Lynch squelched last year resurfaced Thursday in revised form at a legislative committee hearing. Supporters and opponents once again lined up on the issue of collective bargaining during the meeting of the House Labor, Industrial and Rehabilitative Services Committee. Rep. Will Smith, R-New Castle and the bill’s sponsor, said the revised legislation was “clearer” and would be more acceptable to the legislature. He denied accusations that he was pushing a “unionbusting bill.” “This is not an anti-union bill. It’s a pro unionmember bill,” Smith said as the largely union audience laughed. Currently, public workers do not have to be in a union and pay union dues. But when a union negotiates worker contracts, both union members and non-union members must pay agency fees and both are covered by the contract. The bill passed by the legislature and vetoed by the governor last year would have allowed nonunion members to opt out of paying the agency fees. Smith’s revised bill would give workers the choice of joining or not joining the union. Those who don’t would not have to pay agency fees and would not be covered by the contract. About 300 people attended the hearing. The committee expects to make a recommendation in a few weeks. Opponents said the governor’s veto last year reflected public opposition to the measure and they urged a quick recommendation to kill the bill. “Time is a finite entity, and right-to-work legislation in the past three months has been deliberated, vetted and defeated,” said Democratic Rep. Mary Gorman from Nashua. see RIGHT TO WORK page 13

Advocates for mentally ill suing N.H. CONCORD (AP) — Advocates for the mentally ill filed a lawsuit against New Hampshire on Thursday, saying the state needlessly confines the disabled in mental wards because it lacks services to treat them in the community. The plaintiffs and their lawyer, led by the Disabilities Rights Center, want a federal judge to order the state to expand community services and crisis intervention programs. “People who are institutionalized are isolated from loved ones,” said Attorney Amy Messer, legal director of the Disabilities Rights Center. “For others who cycle in and out of New Hampshire Hospital and community hospitals around the state, their lives are marked by constant disruption and change.” Assistant Attorney General Anne Edwards said her office is in the process of reviewing the lawsuit. “Obviously we will be defending the state’s system.” The class-action lawsuit comes 10 months after a federal investigation found the state’s mental health system fails its citizens in need and is in crisis. Federal investigators say the state’s mental health system relies too heavily on confining the mentally ill in the New Hampshire State Hospital and its nursing home component Glencliff Home. “Reliance on unnecessary and expensive institutional care both violates the civil rights of people with disabilities and incurs unnecessary expense,” Assistant U.S. Attorney General Thomas Perez wrote in the April 2011 report.

Claims in the lawsuit mirror the conclusions of the federal investigation and come as no surprise to state officials who for years have acknowledged deficiencies in the system and developed a 10-year plan to address them. DHHS Commissioner Nicholas Toumpas in 2009 labeled it “a broken system.” The Disabilities Rights Center and advocates who filed the lawsuit say the state is violating the Americans with Disabilities Act by segregating the mentally ill in institutions and not providing less restrictive alternatives in the community. They say they filed the lawsuit as a last resort, after lengthy negotiations with the state failed to produce any results. Lawyers for the mentally ill said Thursday that New Hampshire has regressed since the late 1980s, when it was lauded by the National Institute of Mental Health as a leader in providing community services for the mentally ill. Messer said admissions to New Hampshire Hospital and Glencliff House in Benton have “skyrocketed” from 900 in 1989 to 2,300 in 2010. “Once sent to Glencliff, few people ever return to their community,” Messer said. “Over the years more people have died at Glencliff than have returned to their community.” Kenneth R. is a 65-year-old resident of Glencliff House and a named plaintiff in the lawsuit. His guardian, Jayne McCabe, said Thursday he’s been there seven years and desperately wants to leave, but there are no services in the community to help him cope with his mental illness and paraplegia.

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP) — A California woman has her gold necklace back months after she accidentally flushed it down her toilet. San Rafael sanitation district employees were performing routine cleaning work on a pipeline last month when they came across Ann Aulakh’s necklace. Aulakh’s friend had left a message with the district after the chain was lost. Sewer Maintenance Supervisor Kris Ozaki said

workers remembered the message and used it to trace the necklace back to Aulakh. A worker dropped it off at her home. Aulakh told the Marin Independent Journal the necklace was a gift from her husband on their first Christmas together in 1993. She said she was convinced it was gone for good after she inadvertently flushed it down the toilet in October.

Obama governs from a rich-liberal cocoon It’s unusual when a reporter sympathetic to a politician writes a story that makes his subject look bad. But Ryan Lizza of The New Yorker has now done this twice. The first time was in an article last April on Obama’s foreign policy in which he quoted a “top aide” (National Security Adviser Tom Donilon? It sounds like him) saying that the president was “leading from behind” on Libya. Not what most Americans expect their presidents to do. Now, in an article based on leaked White House memos marked up by Obama, Lizza has done it again. Contrarian liberal blogger Mickey Kaus sums it up: “The president’s decision-making method — at least as described in this piece — seems to consist of mainly checking boxes on memos his aides have written for him.” A $60 billion cut in the stimulus package? “OK.” Use the reconciliation process to pass the health care bill? A checkmark in the box labeled “yes.” Include medical malpractice reform in the health care bill? The man who as an Illinois legislator often voted “present” writes, “We should explore it.” According to Lizza, Obama prefers getting information and making decisions by staying up late and reading memos rather than meeting with people — a temperament that’s a liability because face time with the president is one of his major sources of political capital. Lizza’s reporting undercuts the stated thesis of his article: that Obama sought to bring bipartisan governance to Washington, but was foiled by Republicans’ partisan intransigence. Evidence that Obama ever seriously considered Republican approaches is minimal in the New Yorker article. The alternatives Lizza describes Obama as considering are for even more spending and government control, such as a much bigger stimulus package. He mentions just in passing that Obama “had decided to pursue health care reform” as well as the stimulus package — a choice that inevitably made bipartisanship harder to achieve. At one point Lizza does quote Obama writing on a memo, “Have we looked at any of the other GOP recommendations (e.g., Paul Ryan’s) to see if they make any sense?” Another president might have looked at Ryan’s proposals himself or might even have called him on the phone. George W. Bush, in contrast, worked with Democrats — and sometimes even talked with them — on his education plan, his tax cuts and the Iraq War resolution. He

even tried, unsuccessfully, to negotiate with them on Social Security. And on Obama’s failure to reach a “go big” budget agreement with House Speaker John Boehner last summer, Lizza presents only the White House talking point: “conservative colleagues rebelled, and Boehner withdrew.” He doesn’t mention Republican claims that Obama upped the ante, demanding more tax increases. Lizza’s White House sources apparently didn’t leak any memos about some of Obama’s more recent actions, but his article provides a jumping off place for understanding them. As in Chicago, Obama seems to live in a cocoon in which Republicans are largely absent, offscreen actors that no one pays any attention to. His personal interactions are limited to his liberal Democratic staff — and to the rich liberals he meets at his frequent fundraising events. He has held more of these than George W. Bush, who in turn held more than Bill Clinton. Two decisions in particular seem tilted toward rich liberals. One was the disapproval of the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada, even after it survived two environmental impact statements. Obama says he wants more jobs and to reduce American dependence on oil from unfriendly foreign sources. The pipeline would do both, and is endorsed by labor unions. But Robert Redford doesn’t like Canadian tar sands oil. Case closed. The other astonishing decision was the decree requiring Catholic hospitals and charities’ health insurance policies to include coverage for abortion and birth control. Here Obama was spitting in the eyes of millions of Americans and threatening the existence of charitable programs that help millions of people of all faiths. Catholic bishops responded predictably by requiring priests to read letters opposing the policy. Who’s on the other side? The designer-clad ladies Obama encounters at every fundraiser. They want to impose their views on abortion on everyone else. Obama fundraising seems to be lagging behind its $1-billion goal, and Democrats fear Republicans are closing the fundraising gap. So Obama seems to be concentrating on meeting the demands of rich liberals he spends so much time with.

LETTERS Are anti-SB-2 people who skipped town session uniformed voters? To the editor, After attending the Feb. 8 Shaker District public hearing, I reviewed the statements made both for and against the passage of SB-2. Here are few facts, thoughts and questions that came to mind: — Fact: Many people ARE intimidated when taking part in a hand or voice vote. Their privacy is in question. The passage of SB-2 would eliminate this intimidation — all votes are by secret ballot. — Fact: There ARE many older folks, workers, and absent citizens who are unable to attend that could cast an absentee ballot due to infirmity, winter relocation or because of their work schedules. The passage of SB-2 would give these people the opportunity to take part in the process. Statements made against the passage of SB-2: — “People not attending the deliberative session would be uninformed voters.” — “Decisions would be made by only a small number of people.” — “Only a handful of people attended the (SB-2) deliberative session held regarding the Belmont Municipal budget. As I reviewed these statements, I

remembered a very interesting fact regarding who did NOT attend the municipal deliberative session: — Fact: Not one of the people who spoke against the passage of SB-2 was in attendance! Only one Belmont School Board member even bothered to attend. Referring back to their negative opinions regarding the passage of SB 2, I have a couple of questions: — Question: Because you did not attend the deliberative session, does this qualify YOU as an “uninformed voter?” — Question: Does your lack of attendance represent a lack of interest in the municipal side of the process? In my opinion, SB-2 corrects problems that are inherent with the existing methodology used to conduct our district meetings. The intimidation factor does indeed exist, and there are people who would like to attend but are unable to. What it can NOT correct is the lack of participation and motivation suffered by too many citizens, in all aspects of our democratic process. Until that problem is resolved, only a few people will continue to represent the many. Ken Knowlton Belmont

The per person U.S. debt is now $48,900; our family owes $1.075M To the editor, Kent Warner’s letter of Feb. 7 struck me humorously. The government has looted $6-trillion from the Social Security “Trust Fund”, and Kent, in good style lib-think, “spins” the looting to make one think it’s a benefit. Nice touch Kent! Maybe Kent can put spin on the entire government debt, not just that part looted from the Social Security Fund. Our debt now stands at $ 15.3-trillion (U.S. National Debt Clock), and Obama has just increased the debt limit another $1.2-trillion, which by the end of the year will make our debt $16.4-trillion, and the debtto-GDP (Gross Domestic Product, the sum of all goods and services produced in the U.S. in any given year) ratio about 1.05. So, by the end of 2012, we will have mortgaged over one full year of U.S. goods and services (and over

Chinese). Greece, which is in a severe economic and financial crises leading to riots and the resurgence of the Communist Party, has a debt-to-GDP ratio of 1.6 versus our 1.05. We’re not that far away from Greece’s situation. At our current rate of deficit spending we will equal Greece’s debt-to-GDP ratio in about six years. The per-person government debt in the U.S. is $ 48,900. There are 22 people in the Pounds’ clan, including, Elizabeth, our newborn great-granddaughter. The total government debt for the Pounds’ clan is $1,075,800, or a little over $1-million. Kent, with your smooth lib-talk, maybe you can give me some spin to explain to Elizabeth how this debt is to her advantage. Elizabeth and I are looking forward to your reply.

LETTERS When FRM comes up, Gov. Lynch slithers away to background To the editor, I am taking this time to urge every person in and around the state of New Hampshire to read Mark Connelly’s book “Cover Up”. This book is not fiction but thoroughly checked out and brought to light by Mark and several victims of this states’ largest Ponzi scheme, who worked many, many hours trying to get to the reason for so many victim’s being taken in by FRM. There is documented proof that our N.H. government is trying to cover up this mess that they helped to create. For those of you thinking we were foolish in risking our life savings in FRM, think again! We all checked out this company thoroughly before lending one dime. We checked several times on the credibility of FRM through our government, who are there to protect consumers from fraudulent people

like Scott Farrah and were lied to several times about it. Even though Governor Lynch knows and is covering up the deceit in his office he refuses to reimburse the many victims who have fallen prey to this cover up. Governor Lynch is very gracious when he is shaking people’s hands at state fairs, balloon rallies and honoring veterans that make him shine. But when there is a conflict involving him he slithers away in the background. After several attempts he grudgingly allowed us a 20 minute meeting and then slipped away to a pre-arranged meeting. I guess our plight wasn’t important or was too uncomfortable for him. If you think our N.H. government is watching out for you — THINK AGAIN! Thelma Bean Gilford

Gilmanton board knows few people will vote at school meeting To the editor, Each time it seems like the Gilmanton School Board has an opportunity to provide further information and commit to more discussion, particularly on the budget, I actually believe that they are prepared to do their due diligence. Then each time I find that I gave them too much credit for looking deeply into such issues. At the School Board meeting on Feb. 7, I thought there was going to be more discussion on the budget. Instead I was told by the chairman of the School Board, who spoke to me in a very disrespectful manner and tone, that once the School Board voted on their budget, they made no further changes. They would not make changes either

in response to the Budget Committee or to the public, but held firm on their budget number. They then would rely on the body to vote at the School District Meeting, knowing that very few people actually come and vote. They are able to maintain their budget that they derive according to what they want and not what they actually need without any challenges. They have stated that they are actually driving their budget towards having a fund balance at the end of the year. Who pays? We do. Please vote on Tuesday, March 13 and attend the School District Meeting on Saturday, March 24 at the Gilmanton School at 10 a.m. Joanne Gianni Gilmanton Iron Works

The ‘pledge’ is actually a promise to raise our property taxes To the editor, Promises, promises! Pledges, pledges. Democrat and former N.H. Senator Jackie Cilley will not take the pledge against a sales tax or income tax, a lightning-rod issue. Democrat and former N.H. Senator Maggie Hassan will. Both are filed to run for governor. Absent a sales tax or income tax, the actual pledge is to raise our property tax. We could wish that on March 17 they’d both pledge to remember the Little People. In this climate, that’s the 99-percent for whom raised property tax may hit in the form of a landlord passing it on to a tenant with higher rent; or it may mean continued pummeling of fixed-income seniors.

Or it may mean more extended family members living under one roof, and someone under that roof delaying going to college. Small businesses must pass on their costs to their customers. School boards will act on pleas for austerity cuts. As candidate Cilley responsibly explains, we need to have the discussion. On the upcoming Hallmark card day, Valentine’s Day, both Hassan and Cilley can pledge love for New Hampshire, proven by their running for this difficult job of governing New Hampshire, with its handicaps of so-large volunteer Legislature and so-decreasing support for all levels of public education.

LETTERS What expertise does State Dept. have in Keystone pipeline matter? To the editor, Mothers lock your doors, the oil Nazi cometh. Feb. 7 finds that James Veverka wants to split some very fine hairs about shale oil. Okaym he’s correct that the shale oil I referred to was discovered a century ago and the stuff is not conventional oil. It’s a kerogen, a solid mix of organic chemical compounds, from which hydrocarbons called shale oil can be produced. It is estimated that we have 2.8 to 3.3-trillion barrels of the stuff. That’s over and above the discovery’s of “natural sweet crude oil” in Montana and the Dakota’s in the past 10 years. But Mr. Veverka doesn’t want to count any of that as a resources he wants, and will only accept renewable green energy. Fine he can have the green stuff that still can’t be brought down to a cost effective level but until someone does I intend to heat my home with oil and run my car on gas. If he and Obama intend to cause (as the president promised) to make the cost of energy soar, well then I intend to call them out on the mater. Intentionally driving the cost of energy up hurts we in the 99-percent most. That’s a fact that Jimmy V. just can’t get around. It wasn’t the fault of the guy who stopped Keystone, it was the Wall Street speculators who drove up the price. Holy jeez, and just why did the speculafrom preceding page Eric Caron Connection, Brian Howe, Tyrone Nunziata, the Garen Clan, everyone at Pitmans Freight Room, Kevin Shortt, and all the Laconia Police officers who were able to make it out to the jam. Maven not only performed, but organized and kept the evening fun and entertaining!

tors drive up the price. Just maybe they knew shutting down the project was going to lesson the amount of oil available in the next few years so they saw a profit to be made, ya-think Jim? Call me crazy but if I’m not mistaken the Department of State has to do with international relations, diplomacy, treaty’s and the such. I thought it was Energy, Interior, and EPA that had to do with things like Keystone, so how does the Dept. of State come into it and why? Does State have geologists, engineers, scientists, technical experts to look into it or is their very long nose into it only because the president needed cover. Intentionally killing tens of thousands of union and non-union jobs hurts working American families. That’s another fact that Jimmy V. just can’t get around. About nasty. I don’t know how anyone can weigh, measure, or quantify such things but I do know that every time a progressive, a liberal, or a Democrat gets challenged on some point or other they end up calling someone a “racist, a red-neck, stupid, ignorant” and an array of other vile demeaning names. When things don’t go their way politically they more often then not resort to violence, vandalism, intimidation and destruction as though it was their God-given right to act like seven-yearolds throwing a temper tantrum. And as for all those terrible conservatives, last time I check they still are and have been giving more to charity’s then liberals ever did. What bad people. James Veverka is a dedicated left winger who sees the world with liberal blinders on. He hears the world through the filters of progressive logic and resources like Move-on, Huffington Post, MSNBC and Time. Nothing will change his mind but his views and positions will continue to be challenged because he and they are wrong. Steve Earle Hill

Obama’s class warfare talk might lead to Greece-like civil unrest To the editor, As President Obama “struts and frets his hour upon the stage” are we, as John Myers opines, “strapped down and forced to watch this tragedy play out”? Some interpret Shakespeare’s Macbeth as his belief that after the queen’s death, life is meaningless and there probably is no God. In a strange twist of liberal irony, it appears that our leader feels that capitalism is a lie, secularism is the truth and the light and there is no true God. If you were taken in by his inspiring prayer breakfast speech, remember his past and present spiritual advisers, Jeremiah Wright and Jim Wallis. Jim of course offers a theological defense of the welfare state and “gun to our head” taxation. “Teach a man to fish and then force him to give half of his catch away”. It’s the progressive right thing to do. His latest State of the Union speech was certainly full of “sound and fury”, signifying nothing new. Again he rang the statist bell, ringing the necks of of the wealthy with that familiar refrain, “the wealthy are not paying their fair share”. Bringing into focus his redistributionist refrain, “I do think at some point, you’ve made enough money”. Just where would this multimillionaire draw the line? John Myers’ article in a recent Personal Liberty Digest, suggests that President Obama’s actions are eerily reminiscent of another Shakespeare play, Richard III, who more than a century earlier had dragged England into one of it’s bloodiest civil wars. Today, Obama’s class warfare rhetoric and crushing of our economy threaten to bring this country into civil unrest not unlike that of Greece. The “Occupy Wall Street” movement is merely a decadent symptom of the disease that has metastasized from a progressive, entitlement mentality. Shakespeare’s fictional ruler, Richard III was depicted as cunning, conniv-

ing and charismatic. Then we have Macbeth, a tragic story of destruction at the hands of a tyrant who created a poisonous atmosphere within his court and beyond it’s walls. Have we not progressed much further down the road to the “Winter of our Discontent” as John Steinbeck lamented in his last novel about this country’s moral decline? These chilling parallels are enough to scare Rod Serling into hiding in his own “Twilight Zone”. Is it not the Marxist indoctrination of a man who detests capitalism and seems to deplore American exceptionalism, that is watering the seeds of a modern day sour “Grapes of Wrath”? As the depression era “Dustbowl” decimated the economy of the southwest and beyond, so it seems modern day liberalism seems hell bent on forcing our free enterprise, democratic Republic into the dustbin of history. Bludgeoning businesses with suffocating regulations and totalitarian taxation. Filling the NLRB with private enterprise killing union organizers. Taking over ownership of banks and auto companies and then picking the winners and losers. Forcing Obamacare down our throats therefore placing government in charge of another 17-percent of the U.S. economy. Adding almost $5-trillion to our debt in just three years forcing future generations to pay for government greed and wanton, reckless spending. Blowing almost a trillion dollars on shovel-ready jobs that didn’t exist. Blowing billions of dollars on green energy projects that are not yet viable. Billions of taxpayer dollars wasted in paybacks to unions, supporters and contributors in a shameless, pecksniffian example of “crony socialism”. The aforementioned examples only scratch the surface in explaining the destruction that this administration has caused this nation. Edmund see next page

New Beginnings marking 20 years of help for victims of domestic & sexual violence BY ADAM DRAPCHO

LACONIA — As New Beginnings celebrates 20 years of service to Laconia and Belknap County, the organization is also preparing to enter an era where the need for its services seem greater than ever, while revenue sources are becoming increasingly unpredictable. New Beginnings, a non-profit agency, was founded in April of 1991, with the mission of assisting Belknap County residents who find themselves the victims of stalking or domestic or sexual violence. Services include a 24-hour crisis line, support groups, emergency shelter, educational and outreach programs and advocacy for victims navigating the court system or other agencies. Kitty Kiefer, education and outreach coordinator, said the organization operates as an independent non-profit, though it is part of a coalition of “sister agencies” throughout the state, all of which offer similar services. The coalition offers a means of networking and referrals between the agencies, as well as a mechanism to disperse state and federal funding dedicated to the mitigation of sexual and domestic violence. Over the course of the agency’s history, Kiefer said New Beginnings has seen a rise in the need for its services, an increase which has accelerated since 2008, coinciding with the economic recession. Kiefer reported that her agency counted 731 people who required services in 2011. Those victims required 7,250 services, a marked increase from the 5,961 services provided in 2009. More victims come from Laconia than any other town, said Kiefer, which is partly due to the greater population as well as vicinity to the shelter. She said most people are surprised to learn that more than 10-percent of the victims New Beginnings serves are men. The spike in the need for services is the result of general economic strife, said Kiefer. “We’re finding it takes more time to meet all the needs of those we serve. A few years ago it was common to provide advocacy at the court, have a follow-up call, and that was all someone needed from us. Now, people who we provide advocacy to to often need help accessing resources like affordable housing and financial assistance,” said Kiefer. She said that, just a few years ago, those who required emergency shelter typically stayed for two weeks or a month. These days, “the average length of stay is turning into

three or four months.” New Beginnings provides those services with the modest staff of four fulltime employees and one part-timer, whose efforts are augmented by a pool of volunteers. Kiefer noted that the organization is always looking for more volunteers, especially to staff the 24-hour crisis line. A training session for new volunteers is planned for March. Asked about the demand for her agency’s services, Kiefer said, “The need is huge.” She cited a recent study that concluded that one in three women in New Hampshire has been the victim of a physical assault by an intimate partner, and one in four has been the victim of a sexual assault. Exactly how much abuse exists locally is a difficult thing to assess. Despite years of educational outreach programs and public information campaigns, Kiefer said people still are coming to the realization that some behaviors that might have previously been thought of as normal should really be considered abusive. She observed that whenever her organization does an educational program in a given community, New Beginnings will see a spike in abuse reports from that town. She’s found that abuse adapts to new technology, too. Actions such as deleting phone numbers from a partner’s phone or controlling someone’s Facebook page could be considered a kind of emotional abuse. As with many other social service agencies, Kiefer said the spike in need for her organization’s services has not been accompanied by an increase in revenues. Last year, for the first time since its founding, New Beginnings closed the books at a loss. This year, the organization is planning a series of fund raisers. The first fund raiser comes today. “Coffee Break to Break the Cycle” is an initiative wherein local shops agree to donate to New Beginnings and to display educational materials. The Downtown Deli, Laconia Village Bakery and Awakenings Espresso Cafe are participating. Kiefer said the organization is trying out new ideas, trying to find the best way to involve the community in supporting the agency’s services. New this year is a gala-type event which will be held in November. In honor of New Beginnings’s two decades of operation it will be a 1920’s-themed event. The task before Kiefer and her colleagues is daunting, however, she can’t imagine walking away. “For me, I know that this us such a problem, I know that I have to work to prevent it... I’m putting my time and energy where I can help.”

from preceding page Burke once said, “The people never give up their liberties but under some delusion”. Shall we all pray that those paying attention will outnumber those being deluded? Shall we also

pray that those who pay taxes will continue to outnumber those who don’t? I will, because our very survival depends on it. Russ Wiles Tilton

Gilford selectmen adopt new entertainment ordinance By Gail OBer

GILFORD — Selectmen unanimously adopted the provisions of a revised live and unusual entertainment policy that clarifies what the town expects from its live entertainment venues and outlines a method by which it can enforce the rules. At 14 pages, the new ordinance was prepared by Town Administrator Scott Dunn and recently reviewed by town counsel. Selectmen held their vote during a posted meeting on Tuesday evening, after the close of the annual deliberative session of Town Meeting. This is the second and final draft of the new ordinance and, after legal counsel review, it appears the proposed language that any individual selectman could vote to deny a permit for “any reason” has been changed to “any lawful reason.” Key in the new ordinance is that live entertainment permits for establishments that who hold valid liquor licenses will only be given to the holders of the liquor license. This provision came to the fore last October when state and local police raided a local strip club and made several drug related arrests. The town moved to revoke the club’s entertainment permit — which is tied to the state liquor sale license — but discovered the license was not registered in the name of the club, but instead held by the club’s landlord. In addition, if a live entertainment license is granted to a venue that holds a liquor license, the revocation of the liquor license by the state will automatically trigger the revocation of the live entertainment permit.

No entertainment permits will be given to organizations or venues that are not building code and fire code compliant and that are not operating within appropriately zoned area. Gilford’s ordinance also gives a set timeline of 21 days within which the town must act on granting or denying a live entertainment permits. Should the town fail to act in time, a permit is automatically given for a 30 day period. Each permit will be reviewed by the police and fire chiefs as well as the code enforcement officer. The town’s police chief will have the authority to determine if the live venue will have uniformed police officers on premises who would be paid for by the venue. A classic example is the uniformed police officers who regularly patrol the U.S. Cellular Meadowbrook Pavilion during concerts and are on hand for traffic control both before and after a concert. If a particular venue wants to challenge the police chief’s determination, representatives can appeal to the Board of Selectmen. Each live entertainment permit shall be good for one year, unless it is a permit requested for a specifically shorter period of time like a one-time-only event or a seasonal venue, and no existing permit is a guarantee on renewal. The town’s Police Chief, and/or Fire Chief can immediately revoke a live entertainment permit, however the holder of the permit can petition selectmen in writing withing 14 days of the revocation for a public hearing to be held at selectmen convenience. A copy of the new ordinance is available at Gilford Town Hall and will be made available as Chapter 38 of the Town’s ordinances that are posted on its Website.

NO CHILD from page 2 be getting a pass on aggressively helping poor and minority children — the kids the 2002 law was primarily designed to help. The first 10 states to be declared free from the education law are Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, Oklahoma and Tennessee. The only state that applied for the flexibility and did not get it, New Mexico, is working with the administration to get approval. Twenty-eight other states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico have signaled that they, too, plan to flee the law in favor of their own plans. The government’s action on Thursday was a tacit acknowledgement that the law’s main goal, getting all students up to speed in reading and math by 2014, is not within reach. The states excused from following the law no

longer have to meet that deadline. Instead, they had to put forward plans showing they will prepare children for college and careers, set new targets for improving achievement among all students, reward the best performing schools and focus help on the ones doing the worst. Obama said he was acting because Congress had failed to update the law despite widespread agreement it needed to be fixed. “We’ve offered every state the same deal,” Obama said. “If you’re willing to set higher, more honest standards than the ones that were set by No Child Left Behind, then we’re going to give you the flexibility to meet those standards.” The executive action by Obama is one of his most prominent in an ongoing campaign to act on his own where Congress is rebuffing him. see next page

N.H. Senate links serious boating offenses to revocation of license to drive a motor vehicle By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

CONCORD — Without debate and by voice vote the N.H. Senate this week adopted legislation authorizing the director of the division of motor vehicles to revoke the driving license of boaters found to have operated recklessly or caused or contributed to an accident leading to the death or injury of another. Senate Bill 285 was sponsored by Senator Jeanie Forrester (R-Meredith) in response to the case of Erica Blizzard, who was convicted of negligent homicide after the boat she was piloting struck an island, killing one of her passengers and injuring another. Soon after her conviction the Department of Safety revoked her Safe Boating Education certificate for one year and her boating privileges for three years. Blizzard has appealed the revocation of her boating privileges to the New Hampshire Supreme Court,

which has yet to issue a decision. However, Blizzard kept her driving license and, the day after she was convicted, was charged with negligent driving. She was ultimately found guilty in the Fourth Circuit Court — Laconia and fined $250. Forrester said that SB-285 would enable to the Department of Safety to revoke the driving license of someone who committed a serious boating offense. Under current law the boating privileges of any person convicted of driving under influence of alcohol or drugs shall be revoked for one year. The Senate Transportation Committee amended SB-285 to stipulate further that any person convicted of aggravated driving while intoxicated shall also lose their boating privileges for the same length of time as their driving license is revoked. SB-285 will now be sent to the House of Representatives for consideration.

new and unused condition. Police determined the tools were stolen from Lowes Home Center in Gilford by the person who allegedly sold them to Brent moments after they were taken. He was released on $2,000 personal recognizance bail and will appear in Laconia District Court on March 22. — Gail Ober

from preceding page No Child Left Behind was one of President George W. Bush’s most touted domestic accomplishments, and was passed with widespread bipartisan support in Congress. It has been up for renewal since 2007. But lawmakers have been stymied for years by competing priorities, disagreements over how much of a federal role there should be in schools and, in the recent Congress, partisan gridlock.

The law requires annual testing, and districts were forced to keep a closer eye on how students of all races were performing — not just relying on collective averages. Schools that didn’t meet requirements for two years or longer faced increasingly harsher consequences, including busing children to higher-performing schools, offering tutoring and replacing staff.

GuNSTOCK from page one The students happened to be at City Place only because one of them, Lauren Savage, 18, of Dallas, Texas, had lost her cellphone in that area the day before and, after receiving a call from someone who had retrieved it, had gone there with her friends to pick it up. She said that she has skied before in Vail, Colorado, and wanted to try snowboarding. She is a film production major at Emerson College, as is Dennis Connors of Sayreville, New Jersey, who just happened to be celebrating his 19th birthday Thursday. “I never could get the hang of skiing. I always fell on my butt,’’ said Connors, who said his skiing experience was limited to a few outings at a ski area in northern New Jersey. Darian Carpenter, 18, of Berkley, Mass., said he has had a little experience skiing/ He is a musical theatre major. Instructing the snowboarders in proper technique was Jenna Rogato, who provided encouragement to

them as they tried to master the basics of heading down the hill while maintaining their balance and trying to keep their dignity despite numerous falls. The lessons were captured on a camcorder video by Ryan Reed of Rewatchable and will be used in future promotions both by Gunstock and The River 92.5, which broadcasts from a solar-powered historic studio in Haverhill,Mass. and is an independently owned station with a listening audience in the Merrimack River valley area. Steve Friedman of The River said that the a high percentage of the station’s listeners are skiers and has been running a Ski and Ride with The River promotion in recent weeks. Quigley says that despite the less than stellar snowfall this winter Gunstock has 90 percent of its snowmaking terrain open and has excellent skiing conditions. ‘’We’re looking for a big President’s Day weekend and lots of skiers during both Massachusetts and New Hampshire school vacation weeks,’’ says Quigley.

SENATE 7 from page one Laconia, Belmont and Gilford remain from what was District 4 and they are the only municipalities in Belknap County in the new district. All the rest — Franklin and six towns — are in Merrimack County. For the first time since the 1960s, when Edith B. Gardner of Gilford began her string of 10 straight terms in the Senate, Laconia will no longer anchor a Senate district including most of the towns in Belknap County. However, Laconia, Gilford and Belmont represent together 56-percent of the registered voters in the new district. None of the 24 incumbent senators lives in the new District 7. Jim Forsythe, who currently represents District 4, is from Strafford, which has been placed in District 17. In any event, last month Forsythe announced that he would not seek re-election. Five of the six towns in Merrimack County in the new District 7 — Boscawen, Canterbury, Northfield,

Salisbury and Webster — were also in the old District 7, currently represented by Republican Andy Sanborn. But, his hometown of Henniker is not among them. The first redistricting plan released by the Senate Republican majority included Loudon, where Sanborn owns property, in the new District 7, prompting rumors that would move to Loudon and run to keep his seat. However, the original plan also moved Holderness from District 2 to District 3. When Holderness residents balked at being wrenched from the neighbors in Plymouth, Ashland and Center Harbor, Senators Jeanie Forrester of District 2 and Jeb Bradley of District 3 arranged to return Holderness to District 2. That in turn required shunting Andover and Salisbury from District 2 to District 7 and Loudon from District 7 to District 15, which Sylvia Larsen of Concord, the Senate Democratic Leader, has represented for eight terms. After a fluury of rumors that Sanborn would move to Gilford to maintain residence in District 7, he announced last week that he and wife Laurie, who serves in the House of Representatives, will move to Bedford, where both intend to seek re-election. Earlier Republican Senator Raymond White, the incumbent from Bedford, had announced that he would retire from the Senate after serving one term. Among Republicans, only Patrick Hynes, a principal of Hynes Communications, LLC of Concord who see next page

A graduate of Laconia High School with family in the city, Hynes announed he was weighing a bid for the Senate last month. George Hurt of Gilford, who lost to Forsythe in the GOP primary in 2010, said that “a lot of people” have urged him to throw his hat in the ring. He added that he has discussed his candidacy with some of those who supported his last campaign and expects to announce his decision sometime in March. Andrew Hosmer of Laconia, who two years ago lost a bid for the District 4 Senate seat to Forsythe, would be the most likely Democrat to run. But, last WEIRS BEACH

summer he declared that he would challenge twoterm congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter for the Democratic nomination in the First Congressional District. Party leaders have urged him to reconsider and Hosmer acknowledged this week that “a number of people whose counsel I value” have spoken to him about running again for the Senate instead. He said that until recently “I haven’t given it much thought,” but added “out of respect for some good loyal supporters I certainly will consider it.” By most measures the new District 7 offers a Democrat a somewhat more favorable venue than than the current District 4, which has been a GOP stronghold for decades. The towns in Merrimack County, particularly Canterbury, Boscawen and Webster, have proven more favorable to Democrats

In the last four general elections, Democratic candidates for the state Senate have not polled less than 46-percent of the vote in Boscawen, Canterbury, Northfield, Salisbury and Webster and twice have won majorities of 60-percent and 54-percent. These five towns represent 26-percent of the electorate in the new District 7. Republican state Senate candidates carried Franklin and Andover in 2004 and 2010 and Democrats in 2006 and 2008, mirroring the swing from one party to another throughout the state. In the new District 7, Republicans accounted for 31-percent and Democrats 26-percent of all registered voters as of December 14, 2011 with undeclared voters making up the balance of 41-percent.

HOTEL from page one Declaration and the unauthorized use of the unit places you at risk for substantial penalties by the Town of Gilford.” Long known as One Gilford Place, the property consists of two components, one residential and the other commercial. The residential component consists of 63 residential condominium units on two floors of a building that envelops the commercial space on the ground floor beneath it. The residential units were approved by the Planning Board as a hotel/motel and limited to “transient occupancy,” defined as not more than 30 consecutive days or 30 days in any 60 day period. Only one unit, reserved for the hotel/motel manager, can qualify as a year-round residence. In accordance with the Planning Board’s approval, the building operated as a conventional hotel/motel for some time. But, some years ago the reception desk was abandoned along with any outward indication in the form of signage or advertising that the units are available to travelers or transients. Instead, the individual owners arrange to let their units. Several units are currently advertised on Craigslist. One owner offering a one-bedroom unit on the first floor for $699 a month, including utilities, seeks a “long term tenant” with a minimum lease of one year. Another advertises a studio apartment for $995, a one-bedroom unit for $1,095 and a twobedroom unit for $1,195. The deeds to the condominiums are even more restrictive than the zoning ordinance. The deed stipulates that neither ownership nor occupancy of a unit indicates that owners or occupants have “established or intend to establish residency” in Gilford and expressly prohibits them from using units as legal residences. Designated “resort units,” they are restricted to “recreational use similar to that of

a motel or motor lodge unit and only for transient lodging.” The deeds restrict the right of owners to rent to the same tenant as well as to occupy their units or house their guests for more than two consecutive weeks between September 1 and June 1. In his letter to members, Akridge noted that the Marriott TownePlace Suites in Gilford, while also subject to the zoning ordinance, can and does offer extended stays. He enclosed a “folio,” which he said unit owners “may want to consider using if you’re going to do any type of unit rental as an extended stay as a transient lodging facility.” He stressed that occupants must have a permanent address other than 131 Lake Street, not register a car or avail themselves of any services open only to Gilford residents. Akridge recommended that members consult with legal counsel before taking this course. In the same letter he also reminded members that if they were renting their units they must register with the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration for payment of the rooms and meals tax. In 2010, Akridge appeared before the Zoning Board of Adjustment to request a variance to change the use of the units to senior housing. He told the board that unit owners wanted the ability to rent for a longer period, specifically to tenants 55 years old and older from September to May, in order to reap some income from their property. Advised that the board did not consider senior housing an appropriate use, he withdrew the request, indicating that the association would return to discuss other possible off-season uses. Although Akridge has not returned to the ZBA since, he told members that the board intended to approach the town about offering extended stays and “self-policing” to demonstrate that “we can conform with transient lodging use.”

City’s forum on State School property set for March 20 LACONIA — The city will host a forum on the future of the former Laconia State School property on North Main Street on Tuesday, March 20 at the Laconia Middle School, beginning at 6 p.m. The forum will feature a moderated panel discussion among invited professionals and officials experienced in redeveloping comparable properties, including those like the state school site requiring environmental remediation. Planning Director Shanna Saunders said yesterday “this will be a work session.” She said that the information compiled by the commission convened by the Legislature, chaired by City Councilor Matt Lahey (Ward 2) and assisted by the United States Environmental Protection Agency will be used to frame feasible sce-

narios for redeveloping the property in keeping with the views offered by members of the public at two community meetings in 2010. The public is welcome to attend the forum and is invited to ask questions and offer comments following the panel discussion and work session. Saunders said that once plans for the property are prepared, they would be presented to the public. The 2012-2013 state budget provides for the sale of approximately 199 acres of the 212-acre site that housed first the state school and later a state prison to the city for $10-million. Russ Thibeault of Applied Economic Research, who appraised the property for the City Council, placed its value at closer to $1.5-million. — Michael Kitch

RIGHT TO WORK from page 3 Proponents say the so-called right-to-work legislation spurs economic growth, and they credit Indiana’s recent conversion to the right-to-work principle as helping create about 450 new manufacturing jobs in that state. “The ink on the new law had not even dried when we learned that Caterpillar, one of the nation’s largest manufacturing firms, will immediately relocate a plant from Canada to Indiana, specifically because it is now a right-to-work state,” said House Speaker William O’Brien of Mont Vernon in his written testimony to the committee.

Experts say, however, that many factors influence states’ economies and that it’s nearly impossible to isolate the impact of right to work. Over the years, job growth has surged in states with, and without, right-to-work laws. Smith’s bill is one of several measures this session that have drawn the ire of unions. One would take away collective bargaining rights altogether. Others would prohibit mandatory agency fees for non-union members and the deduction of union dues from public employee paychecks. Another measure would ban former public employees or union members from sitting on the state’s contract negotiating team.

SETTLEMENT from page 2 default,” Delaney said. The balance would help facilitate short sales and fund payment forbearance due to unemployment. An additional $9.5 million will be used to help homeowners who have zero or negative equity in their property refinance by lowering their principle balances. To qualify for this assistance, homeowners must be current on their mortgage payments, have a current interest rate in excess of 5.25 percent and their mortgages must be held by one of the five banks in the settlement. Delaney said he expects New Hampshire homeowners who qualify will see some tangible benefit from the settlement within three months. The relief applies only to owner-occupied properties and not investor properties. The state will receive $10 million to fund foreclosure prevention and homeowner assistances programs and to expand its consumer protection activities. Delaney said New Hampshire signed onto the set-

tlement agreement because it provides immediate relief to struggling homeowners and brings badly needed reform to the mortgage servicing industry. “During this economic downturn, too many New Hampshire citizens have been harmed by the misconduct and deceptive practices of our largest bank mortgage servicers,” Delaney said. “Our New Hampshire citizens are struggling to stay in their homes and trying to restructure the terms of their loans, and they need our help now,” Delaney said. “This is meaningful relief for thousands of New Hampshire homeowners.” Banking Commissioner Ronald Wilbur said the money would “begin to break the logjam consumers are feeling now in seeking refinancing.” In addition to the $43.6 million, the Banking Department will be getting $1 million in the settlement to help defray costs it incurred during the past three years of the mortgage crisis. Wilbur said in 2005, the state averaged less than 500 foreclosures a year. In the past four years, that number has hovered at about 3,500 foreclosures a year.

MORTGAGE from page 2 two states stand to receive roughly 75 percent of the settlement funds. Of the five major lenders, Bank of America will pay the most to borrowers: nearly $8.6 billion. Wells Fargo will pay about $4.3 billion, JPMorgan Chase roughly $4.2 billion, Citigroup about $1.8 billion and Ally Financial $200 million. The banks will also pay state and federal governments about $5.5 billion. The settlement ends a painful chapter of the financial crisis, when home values sank and millions edged toward foreclosure. Many companies processed foreclosures without verifying documents. Some employees signed papers they hadn’t read or used fake signatures to speed foreclosures — an action known as robo-signing. President Barack Obama praised the settlement, saying it will “speed relief to the hardest-hit homeowners, end some of the most abusive practices of the mortgage industry and begin to turn the page on an era of recklessness that has left so much damage in its wake.”

The deal requires the banks to reduce loans for about 1 million households that are at risk of foreclosure. The lenders will also send $2,000 each to about 750,000 Americans who were improperly foreclosed upon from 2008 through 2011. The banks will have three years to fulfill terms of the deal. The states have agreed not to pursue civil charges over the abuses covered by the settlement. Homeowners can still sue lenders on their own, and federal and state authorities can still pursue criminal charges. The deal, reached after 16 months of contentious negotiations, is subject to approval by a federal judge. It’s the biggest settlement involving a single industry since the $206 billion multistate tobacco deal in 1998. But for the many people who lost their homes to foreclosure in the past two years, some of them improperly, a check for $2,000 is small consolation. “Two thousand dollars won’t cover my moving costs,” said Brian Duncan, who was evicted from his Tempe, Ariz., home last April.

Eleanor Stockbridge Dalton, 87

RINDGE, N.H. — Eleanor Dora (Patten) Stockbridge Dalton, 87, Rindge, died peacefully Monday February 6, 2012 at the Catholic Medical Center in Manchester, surrounded by many of her large family. Eleanor was born on September 24, 1924, daughter of Fred and Lura (Gray) Patten, and grew up in the Belmont, Gilmanton and Alton areas of New Hampshire. She married Carl Stockbridge, Sr. in 1940 and she spent much of her life as a housewife and mother to her children in their home in Belmont, NH. She married Hal Dalton in 1965 and resided in Belmont where they lived until 1980. Together they moved to their new home in Rindge where they spent most of their time farming, canning and tending the gardens. They also boarded horses, raised chickens and pigs, and had beautiful flower gardens. They loved having family over to visit, cooking a big meal and playing card games, board games, and puzzles. Eleanor and Hal were married 35 years before Hal passed away in 2001. Eleanor spent the last few years being cared for by her granddaughter, Mandy Elliott and her two young children, Veronica and Vanessa, at the same home in Rindge where she had spent the last 32 years. “Grammy Dalton” enjoyed helping Veronica with her homework, playing games with Vanessa and coloring, too. Eleanor spent her weekdays at the Monadnock Adult Care Center on North Street in Jaffrey where she enjoyed her time with many of her friends playing bingo, doing puzzles, listening to

music and much more. Eleanor, widow of Hal Dalton (2001), is also predeceased by two of her daughters, Ellie Gallucci and Linda Lord, a granddaughter Patty Beringer, and 2 grandsons Robert Leroux Sr. and Larry Elliott II. Eleanor is survived by her first husband and father to her children, Carl Stockbridge, Sr. of Gilmanton. She is also survived by a son Carl Stockbridge, Jr. and his wife Sandra of Belmont and 4 daughters, Marie Ostiguy and her husband Roger of New Braintree, MA, Judy Dagen and her husband Neil of Sharon, NH, Sharon Elliott and her husband Larry of Northfield, NH and Jean Hueber and her husband Roland of Gilmanton, NH. She was “Mother” to seven, but “Grammy Dalton” to many. She leaves behind 27 grandchildren, 59 great grandchildren and 10 great great grandchildren. Family and friends are warmly invited to calling hours on Saturday, February 11, 2012 from 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM at the Cournoyer Funeral Home & Cremation Center, 33 River Street, Jaffrey. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated immediately following calling hours at 12:00 Noon, in Saint Patrick Church, 89 Main Street, Jaffrey, NH. Eleanor will be laid to rest in the spring at Park Cemetery in Tilton, NH. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Good Neighbor Fund, PO Box 486, Jaffrey, NH 03452. To share a memory or to send a condolence to the family, please visit www.cournoyerfh.com

ALTON — Florence Robie Reed Holway was born in Belmont, Massachusetts on June 2, 1915 to Edna Charles Brown and Byron William Reed. Although she grew up in Belmont, her mother’s family had old and deep ties to Cape Cod going back to the great whaling days, so she summered on the Cape and planned to live there. She received a degree at Mass. Art and moved to the Cape to paint portraits. Shortly she became well known enough to be hired by several families on Staten Island to paint their children. The outbreak of WWII put a stop to private portraiture and Florence went back to Boston and worked at Mass. General as a medical artist studying the affects of sulfur drugs in the kidneys. Her kidney drawings are still considered extraordinary. In 1943 she married Spear T. Holway, who was being shipped to Okinawa. They had five children during and after the war: Sidney Thomas Holway, Byron Reed Holway, Charles Thatcher Holway, Robie Ellen Holway and William Spear Holway. In 1958 Florence left Cape Cod, a single mom with five children, and landed in Peterborough, NH where she put herself through Keene State College by working nights at Monadnock Hospital. After

receiving her Education degree in 1963 she moved to Alton, NH where she continued to raise her children, taught school, farmed and gardened, and carried on her passion for painting and opening her own gallery. Florence was known nationally and abroad for her courage and perseverance as she fought long and hard to change both federal and state legislation for victims of rape. Even to the end Florence was a woman of great determination. As she wished, she died in her home with family at her side. She was strong and healthy most of her life, but at the age of 96 her body was tired. She is survived by her five children, nine grandchildren and nine great grandchildren. She lived her life giving and doing for others. For this reason her memory will warm our hearts forever. A Memorial Service will be held on Thursday, February 16, 2012 at 5:00 pm at Peaslee Alton Funeral Home, 12 School Street, Alton, NH . Rev. Charles Wilson, pastor of The Bay Church will officiate. Family and friends are welcome. Interment will be in the spring at New Riverside Cemetery in Alton. To express condolences, please visit: www.peasleefuneralhome.com

DAILY CROSSWORD TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES

by Paul Gilligan

by Darby Conley

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis though you are a strong individual, right now you are also quite impressionable. Use this to your advantage. Surround yourself with the kind of people you want to be more like. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Something is not working in your daily routine, and this may be causing you to feel tired or unwell. This is an easy fix once you pinpoint the exact problem. Greater health and vitality will soon be yours. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll work on your mindset and make a conscious effort to think like a winner. Your mental take on things will have an effect on how you look, the way you carry yourself and how convincing you are to others. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Follow-through is a strength of yours. You’ll commit fully to whatever action you take. And because you are feeling impulsive now, you might not think it through first. Luckily, your instincts won’t steer you wrong. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A former sweetie may romanticize about your past together, or an old pal might want to gab with you about the good old days. Gently nudge everyone into the present because there’s a lot of good in what’s going on now. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 10). It’s your turn to have fun. Your internal search engine scans the world at large for the data that will contribute to your happiness. Professional achievement will be good for your finances in March. Humor will be a cornerstone of your attitude. April’s “setbacks” are a blessing, as they guide you to more fruitful efforts. Taurus and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 25, 49, 30 and 14.

TUNDRA

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You realize that relationships often are built over encounters that are few and far between. In order for the relationship to gain momentum, someone has to take initiative. That someone is you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your many successes will be the subject of inquiry. People want to know how you did what you did. Additionally, some of them would like to know whether you can help them achieve similar results. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Mood swings are not always a negative occurrence. Today’s shifts in feeling will be the cause of spontaneous excitement. In the future, you’ll look back on today in wonderment. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Due to the uninspiring nature of mundane chores, it’s often difficult to get started, though satisfying to finish. Handle things quickly, and it soon becomes second nature to keep the orderly groove going. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you don’t have the buy-in and support of your family, it will be very difficult to be successful in today’s big tasks. So communicate your desire clearly, and try to get your people on board. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There will be a financial reversal in your household. The one who usually wants to save will spend, and the one who usually spends will save. Everything balances out in the end. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re a little obsessed right now with an object of desire. When you really want something, there’s no point in putting it off. Move forward so you can check this one off your list and start thinking of other things. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Even

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, February 10, 2012— Page 17

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, Feb. 10, the 41st day of 2012. There are 325 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Feb. 10, 1962, the Soviet Union exchanged captured American U-2 pilot Francis Gary Powers for Rudolf Abel, a Soviet spy held by the United States. On this date: In 1763, Britain, Spain and France signed the Treaty of Paris, ending the Seven Years’ War. In 1840, Britain’s Queen Victoria married Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. In 1912, Joseph Lister, the “Father of Antiseptic Surgery,” died in Walmer, Kent, England, at age 84. In 1942, the former French liner Normandie capsized in New York Harbor a day after it caught fire while being refitted for the U.S. Navy. RCA Victor presented Glenn Miller and his Orchestra with a “gold record” for their recording of “Chattanooga Choo Choo,” which had sold more than 1 million copies. In 1949, Arthur Miller’s play “Death of a Salesman” opened at Broadway’s Morosco Theater with Lee J. Cobb as Willy Loman. In 1962, Republican George W. Romney announced his ultimately successful candidacy for governor of Michigan. In 1967, the 25th Amendment to the Constitution, dealing with presidential disability and succession, was ratified as Minnesota and Nevada adopted it. In 1968, U.S. figure skater Peggy Fleming won America’s only gold medal of the Winter Olympic Games in Grenoble, France. In 1981, eight people were killed when a fire set by a busboy broke out at the Las Vegas Hilton hotel-casino. In 1992, boxer Mike Tyson was convicted in Indianapolis of raping Desiree Washington, a Miss Black America contestant. (Tyson served three years in prison.) Author Alex Haley died in Seattle at age 70. In 2005, playwright Arthur Miller died in Roxbury, Conn., at age 89 on the 56th anniversary of the Broadway opening of his “Death of a Salesman.” One year ago: Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak refused to step down or leave the country and instead handed his powers to his vice president, stunning protesters in central Cairo who waved their shoes in contempt and shouted, “Leave, leave, leave.” Today’s Birthdays: Opera singer Leontyne Price is 85. Actor Robert Wagner is 82. Rock musician Don Wilson (The Ventures) is 79. Singer Roberta Flack is 75. Singer Jimmy Merchant is 72. Rock musician Bob Spalding is 65. Olympic gold-medal swimmer Mark Spitz is 62. World Golf Hall of Famer Greg Norman is 57. Actress Kathleen Beller is 56. Country singer Lionel Cartwright is 52. Movie director Alexander Payne is 51. ABC News correspondent George Stephanopoulos is 51. Actress Laura Dern is 45. Country singer Dude Mowrey is 40. Actress Elizabeth Banks is 38. Pop singer Rosanna Taverez is 35. Actress Julia Pace Mitchell is 34. Country musician Jeremy Baxter is 32. Rock singer Eric Dill is 30. Rock musician Ben Romans is 30. Actress Emma Roberts is 21. Actress Makenzie Vega is 18.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, February 10, 2012— Page 19

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Dear Annie: My mother is 86 and lives in another state. My 33-year-old nephew and his three kids live with her, as do my niece, “Joanna,” and her two children. Not one of them has a job. Several months ago, Mom broke her hip and was in rehab for four months. During that time, Joanna used Mom’s ATM card and took all the money out of her account. She also opened credit cards in Mom’s name and ran up huge bills and stole Mom’s mail-order pills and sold them on the street. What’s worse is that my sister, the mother of this niece and nephew, insists that I am not permitted to say one negative word to my mother about them. She claims the thievery is between Joanna, Mom and God. My mother is scared of all of them. I have called Adult Protective Services, but was told they’d only step in if my mother made a report. My sister says I need to forgive Joanna and let it go. How do I do that? There has been no accountability, no restitution, no apology. Also, I found out that Mom’s good jewelry was pawned for drugs. Any ideas? -- Mad in Omaha Dear Omaha: Adult Protective Services may not be able to step in if Mom appears to be mentally healthy and refuses to cooperate. Your sister is trying to protect her children. Shame on her for allowing them to financially abuse their grandmother. Please try the Eldercare Locator at 1-800-677-1116 (eldercare.gov) and ask what assistance is available in Mom’s state. Dear Annie: After several weeks of arguments with my husband about his parents’ intentional cruelty toward me and his lack of defense, we finally confronted them. We tried to do it gently. We shared that they had hurt my feelings with their behavior. Their reaction was the opposite of what we had hoped. Instead of apologizing for their wrongs against me, they imme-

diately went on the defensive and insisted that my husband and I will always be the “children,” and they will always be the parents and will not tolerate “lectures” from their kids. I choose to no longer be surrounded by such mean people. My husband is trying to stand up for me, but it’s difficult for him because they are so controlling. Am I wrong to feel he should defend me, even if it means we are no longer speaking to his parents? -- Confused in Oregon Dear Confused: Your husband must put you first. He should insist his parents behave in a civil manner toward you, but if they can’t or won’t, it is OK for you to stay away as much as possible. Your husband, however, may choose to visit his parents without you. Please don’t take this as a lack of defense. They are his folks, and he loves them. We recommend you support his efforts to stay in touch with them and he support your need to stay away. Dear Annie: “Looking for Some Answers” didn’t know what to do about her alcoholic friend who got behind the wheel. The man who killed my 18-year-old son did not feel he was too drunk to drive. Our small police department does not have an alcohol test kit in every patrol rig, so the officer had to drive 45 minutes back to the station to get one. By the time he returned, the man had sobered up enough to pass. This man is a murderer because he chose to drink and drive. It’s been 10 years, but I still miss my son every day. God forgive me, but I wish these drunks would just die and stop killing innocent people. “Looking” should call 911 and turn her friend in every time she gets behind the wheel under the influence. Drunk drivers are selfish people who need help. -- Klamath Falls, Ore. Dear Klamath Falls: Your loss is heartbreaking. Our condolences.

Reception Monday for Historical Society exhibit on Native Americans

LACONIA — The Laconia Historical and Museum Society will hold a reception for its winter exhibit, “Re-imagining Captain Jack” in the exhibit space on the second floor of the Laconia Public Library on Monday, February 13 from 5-7 p.m. “Re-imagining Captain Jack” explores how past and present generations of Laconians have seen and celebrated the city’s Native American roots. It shows how new knowledge and inherent appreciation have steadily enlightened residents and made their celebrations more in line with the Native American cultures they seek to honor. The Laconia Historical and Museum Society says that it owes much thanks to the Laconia Public Library for its generous funding, its dedicated volunteers for their time, and the Laconia Indian Historical Association for its support. The exhibit will be on display at the Laconia Public Library through April during normal library hours. For more information visit www.LaconiaHistorical.org or contact or office at 527-1278.

Plymouth State University emergency outdoor siren test planned for February 15

PLYMOUTH — Plymouth State University will test its PSU Alert Emergency Outdoor Siren at noon, Wednesday, Feb. 15. The test will last about five minutes. The purpose of the PSU Alert Emergency Outdoor Siren is to notify campus and community residents, staff and visitors to an imminent threat or danger. The PSU Alert Emergency Outdoor Siren is part of a comprehensive emergency alert system established to respond to emergencies. The siren is located on a pole adjacent to the Hartman Union Building on High Street and should be audible outdoors for approximately a one-mile radius. The siren is tested twice a year (at noon on the third Wednesday in September and February) and otherwise will sound only when there is threat of imminent danger to those in the campus community. Questions or comments regarding the PSU Emergency Alert Siren test can be sent to Chief Public Relations Officer Timothy Kershner at 535-2476.

Audubon chapter to hear about Baja on Thursday

Pine Gardens Manufactured Homes Sales & Park

Used Burlington - $15,900

MOULTONBOROUGH — The Lakes Region Chapter of the New Hampshire Audubon Society will feature a presentation titled “1000 Miles of Solitude: Driving the Baja California Peninsula” on February 16 at 7:30 p.m. at the Loon Center. Pam Hunt of the Conservation Department of NH Audubon drove the length of the peninsula in February 2010 and says there’s a lot more to Baja than Tijuana and Cabo San Lucas, and unless you’re only interested in surfing or a quick hop across the border, the best of Baja is tucked into the 1000 miles of Mexico Route 1 that connects these two cities. She says there are two Mexican states in Baja California; the state of Baja California itself in the north, and Baja California Sur. While the north has a population of over 3 million, mostly in cities like Mexicali

and Tijuana, the southern, mostly coastal population is only a little over 500,000, half in La Paz, in an area three times the size of New Hampshire. At higher elevations, the desert gives way to scrub, dry forests, and pine-oak forests. These varied habitats support varied fauna and flora, including snakes, lizards, and a range of mammals from mice to antelopes. Offshore in the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez there is more natural diversity; besides the famous breeding areas for California Gray Whales and various sea turtles, the warm waters are noted for their fish and invertebrates, as well as hurricanes. The Loon Center is located on Lee’s Mill Road; follow the signs from Route 109 or from Route 25 near the Moultonborough Central School. Refreshments will be served.
