Former Laconia state rep mails handaddressed letters to all 1,395 people who registered to vote in city on election day By MiKe MOrtensen FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — A former state representative is saying that he has uncovered local evidence of alleged voter fraud in last November’s General Election. Bob Kingsbury says that following the Nov. 6 election, he mailed a letter to each of the 1,395 people who registered at the Laconia polls on Election Day. Sixty of the letters were returned by the Postal Service as undeliverable, he said. “That means they don’t live here. They never lived here” and therefore were not eligible to vote in the city, Kingsbury said. see VOTErS page 14

GI admits leaks, accuses military of ‘bloodlust’
FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) — Bradley Manning, the Army private arrested in the biggest leak of classified material in U.S. history, offered to plead guilty Thursday to charges that could send him to prison for 20 years, saying he spilled the secrets to expose the American military’s “bloodlust” in Iraq and Afghanistan. It was the first time Manning directly admitted leaking the material to the antisecrecy website WikiLeaks and detailed the frustrations that led him to do it. Sitting before a military judge, the slightly built 25-year-old soldier from Oklahoma read from a 35-page statement through his wirerimmed glasses for more than an hour. He spoke quickly and evenly, showing little emotion even when he described how troubled he was by what he had seen. “I believed that if the general public, especially the American public, had access to the information ... this could spark a domestic debate on the role of the military and our foreign see LEAKS page 8

Now a ‘simple pilgrim’, Benedict resigns papacy CASTEL GANDOLFO, Italy (AP) — As bells tolled and the clock struck 8, the brass-studded wooden doors swung shut Thursday at this palace in the Italian hills, marking an end to Benedict XVI’s papacy and the start of his final journey as a “simple pilgrim.” Capping a day of tearful farewells that included an extraordinary pledge of obedience to his successor, Benedict entered history as the first pope in 600 years to
resign — leaving the Catholic Church in unprecedented limbo and ending a pontificate shaped by struggles to move beyond clerical sex abuse scandals and reawaken Christianity in an indifferent world. On Benedict’s last day, the mood was vastly different inside the Vatican than at Castel Gandolfo, the 17th-century papal retreat set in the hills south of Rome, where he will spend the first two months of his retirement.
At the seat of the popes, Benedict’s staff bade the pontiff goodbye in scenes of dignified solemnity, with Swiss Guards in full regalia and prelates kneeling to kiss his papal ring one last time. A livelier atmosphere reigned in the countryside, with well-wishers jamming the hilltop town’s main square, shouting “Viva il Papa!” and waving the yellow and white flags of the Holy See. see POPE page 13
CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire’s net benefit could be zero if a proposed casino is built in the southern part of the state in competition with one in Massachusetts once social and regulatory costs are counted, according to a study released Thursday. The New Hampshire Center for Public Policy Studies released its analysis on what would happen if the state authorizes one casino to be built requiring a $500
million investment and authorizing 5,000 video slot machines. The center estimates the state would break even at best if a casino is opened at Suffolk Downs in Massachusetts as planned. The center estimates the New Hampshire casino would generate $138 million in revenues without a casino at Suffolk Downs but only $68 million with the opening of the nearby Massachusetts facility. The study estimates the social and
regulatory costs would be $68 million, leaving the state with a net benefit of zero. “While allowing a casino to operate in New Hampshire will undoubtedly result in tax revenue to the state, the amount of the revenue depends on the established tax rate and license fees charged to developers,” concluded the study. But the center added that “the regulatory and social costs of expanded gambling see CASINO page 10
WASHINGTON (AP) — The weakest quarter for the U.S. economy in nearly two years may end up being a temporary lull. Economists think growth has begun to pick up on the strength of a sustained housing recovery and a better job market. The economy grew at an annual rate of just 0.1 percent from October from Decem-
ber, a government report Thursday showed. That’s only slightly better than the Commerce Department’s previous estimate that the economy shrank at a rate of 0.1 percent. And it’s down from the 3.1 percent annual growth rate in the July-September quarter. Economists said the weakness last quar-
ter was caused by steep defense cuts and slower company restocking, which are volatile. Residential construction, consumer spending and business investment — core drivers of growth — all improved. Steady job growth will likely keep consumers spending, despite higher Social Security see ECONOMY page 8

The court jesters of sequester Traffic alert: There’s a massive clown car pileup in the Beltway. And with the White House court jesters of sequester behind the wheel, no one is safe. Fiscal sanity, of course, is the ultimate victim. President Obama has been warning America that if Congress allows mandatory spending “cuts” of a piddly-widdly 2 percent to go into effect this week, the sky will fall. The manufactured crisis of “sequestration” was Obama’s idea in the first place. But that hasn’t stopped the Chicken Little in Chief from surrounding himself with every last teacher, senior citizen and emergency responder who will be catastrophically victimized by hardhearted Republicans. Curses on those meanie Republicans! How dare they acquiesce to the very plan for “cuts” — or rather, negligible reductions in the explosive rate of federal spending growth — that Obama himself hatched? How low will the kick-the-can Democrats go? Among the ridiculous claims the administration is making: The National Drug Intelligence Center will lose $2 million from its $20 million budget. That scary factoid appears in an ominous Office of Management and Budget report purporting to calculate the Sequester Disaster. So lock the doors and hide the children, right? Wrong. As Reason magazine’s Mike Riggs points out, the NDIC shut down in June 2012, and some of its responsibilities were absorbed by the Drug Enforcement Administration. Ready for more reckless, feckless farce? Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano played Henny Penny during a panicked speech at the Brookings Institution Tuesday. She warned that her agency’s “core critical mission areas” would be undermined by the sequester. To cynically underscore the point, “waves” of illegal aliens were released this week from at least three detention centers in Texas, Florida and Louisiana, according to the Fort Worth Star Telegram. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed the release of some illegal immigrants Monday night, but would not say how many or from which detention centers.
The real punch line, as I’ve reported relentlessly, is that the catch and release of criminal illegal aliens has been bipartisan standard operating procedure for decades. The persistent deportation and removal abyss allows hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens — many of them known repeat criminal offenders — to pass through the immigration court system and then disappear into the ether because we have no determined will to track them down and kick them all out of the country. While Napolitano shrieks about decimation of the DHS workforce, DHS workers tell me that the double-dipping of retired ICE brass — who get back on the payroll as “rehired annuitants” — is rampant. While this open-borders White House phonily gnashes its teeth over the sequester’s effect on national security, its top officials are lobbying for a massive nationwide amnesty that would foster a tsunami of increased illegal immigration for generations to come. The shamnesty beneficiaries will be welcomed with open arms, discounted college tuition, home loans and ObamaCare. And as every outraged rank-and-file border agent will tell you, DHS top officials have instituted systemic non-enforcement and sabotage of detention, deportation and removal functions. In another emetic performance, Obama parachuted into a Virginia naval shipyard this week to decry Pentagon cuts that would gut our military. But I repeat: The reductions in spending are CINO: Cuts In Name Only. If the sequester goes into effect, Pentagon spending will increase by $121 billion between 2014 and 2023. Fiscal watchdog GOP Sen. Tom Coburn adds that $70 billion is spent by the Defense Department on “nondefense” expenditures each year. Send in the clowns. Wait. Don’t bother. They’re here.

LETTERS Sequester wouldn’t actually cut any of our current spending To the editor, How does anyone understand the real impact of the “sequester”? Let’s consider what the “sequester” would mean to your family budget. If President Obama were in charge of the “sequester” for your family budget, he might tell you that you will have to cut the following: 1 1/2 meals a week, turn your thermostat down 5 degrees, cut your electricity use by 100 KwH/month, reduce driving 100 miles per week, and cut half the spending for other really important things in your life, e.g., medicine. It sounds pretty scary! You wouldn’t think it was so bad when you discovered that these cuts were all in President Obama’s greatly inflated budget for your family’s future spending. In that budget President Obama planned that you would add two meals a week, raise your thermostat 6 degrees, increase electricity use by 150 KwH/month, increase driving by 130 miles per week, and triple spending on other important things in your life. President Obama’s “sequester” wouldn’t actually cut any of your current spending! In fact, your future spending will still increase! The same is true with the national “sequester”. While President Obama runs around screaming (figuratively), “The sky is falling! The sky is falling!”, the “sequester” doesn’t reduce current spending by a single dime! Even if the “sequester” reduced the amount of money we currently spend,
which it doesn’t, that would only be a 2.5 percent reduction. In President Obama’s economy most families have probably already been forced to make even larger spending cuts. Of course you could cut 2.5 percent of spending without eliminating food, medicine, transportation, and other essential things. Although President Obama threatens to cut essential services, he could choose to cut less important spending. Rather than cutting services that harm middle and lower income Americans, he could cut waste, fraud, and abuse to easily cut the spending in the “sequester”. Why would President Obama cut essential services and cause widespread harm when no real cuts are required and while so many things could be cut without harming anyone? Why have 30,000 criminals already been released from jail so they can harm Americans again? Is it just to make Republicans surrender? Is it to have more money for rewarding his political supporters? Does he want to hurt middle income Americans? Since he proposed the “sequester” that he now opposes, is he just having fun manipulating the media and toying with the American people? Or, is it madness, as Bob Woodward suggests? If the “sequester” harms any American, it is because President Obama chose to, but was not forced to, cut things that cause harm. Don Ewing Meredith
Don’t fall for good old boy promises coming from Don Guarino To the editor, Dear fellow Gilmanton resident,: We have a three person Board of Selectmen so it is very important that we elect selectmen that are truly independent. On March 12th, we can elect Betty Ann Abbott to serve as a truly independent voice as our next selectman! Betty Ann is not only knowledgeable, dependable and thorough; she will not be unduly influenced. She has previously served us as selectman, including as chairperson. She was not a rubber stamp for anyone and delved into issues to reach the best results for the town. She will be a good steward of our tax dollars and bring much needed professionalism to the board.
While I am thrilled to vote for such an outstanding candidate as Betty Ann, I am worried that my fellow voters will listen to and fall prey to glad handing and good old boy promises from her opponent, Don Guarino. His prior record as selectman shows inconsistency in terms of attendance, punctuality and follow through on issues. We don’t need a selectman who is unorganized or inattentive to details. We need a selectman who is independent and not a rubber stamp for another selectman. Don Guarino actively campaigned and supported Brett Currier last year and it is clear to me they would be two peas in a pod. see next page

Other than mafia wars, I can’t recall mass shootings before 80s To the editor, After reading John Rodgers letter of February 22, I felt it necessary to respond as the content of the letter led me to assume that he, at least in part, was referring to me. 1. I don’t recall anyone referring to the tragedy in Newtown as a conspiracy, at least I know I didn’t. I will say though that when Rahm Emanuel was Obama’s chief of staff he said, and I quote, “you never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” I believe that’s the mindset of the Obama presidency. 2. When someone is elected president they are supposed to, whether they have an R in front of their name or a D, represent all of the people. I have yet to see anything in his agenda that is representative of me. I am a conservative and he is a socialist/liberal who I didn’t vote for in 2008 because I didn’t think he was qualified and I didn’t vote for him in 2012 because he had proven it. As far as him wanting to ban all guns, I can guarantee you that if a bill to confiscate all firearms came to his desk he would jump on his golf cart and head for the White House so fast that one might think that Danica Patrick was running her qualifying lap for the Daytona 500 on Pennsylvania Avenue. You can have him. 3. I also have no recollection of any one mentioning anything about doors being kicked in, so I guess that’s a figment of your imagination. The only thing that was brought up was the idea of being prepared to protect yourself and your family as best you can so I guess that would include somebody kicking in my door. I would advise against it. 4. Mr. Rodgers I have no idea if you are a gun hater or not and I don’t believe I recall anyone insinuating that you are; I just think you and others are misinformed. 5. Of course the NRA is supported by gun manufacturers, which to me is no different than AARP supporting every company in the country they can get a cut from to forward to the DNC.
6. What type of background check would have prevented the tragedy in Newtown? 7. Now to the preposterous proliferation of semi-automatic rifles such as the AR-15 etc. First a little history. The first semi-auto rifle was produced by Winchester in 1903. It was a .22 auto. caliber. In 1905 Winchester followed with a center-fire model of the gun and you had a choice of .32 or .35 cal. And either a 5 or 10 shot magazine. Both of these calibers are much larger than the .223 which the AR-15 is chambered for. So in reality, we’ve had semi-auto rifles for over one hundred years and some of these rifles had hi-capacity magazines. The only difference between these rifles and the so-called assault type weapons is the physical appearance. I’ve stated this before and I will say it again, give me a half an hour with a semi-auto hunting rifle, a few tools and a can of paint and you would be hard pressed to tell the difference between the two. I can’t remember any mass shootings, except for the mafia wars, before the 1980s. If I’m wrong I’m sure I’ll be corrected. If you watch the violent movies and video games that were produced in that time frame what do you see? You see assault type weapons in all of them. These shootings have in almost all cases been perpetrated by young people so I suggest you do the math. 8. As far as buffoonery goes I have seen a lot more evidence of it in the letters from the misinformed. As far as the pig comment is concerned, you are apparently relying on misinformation there also. The facts are that pigs, when given the proper living conditions, are very clean animals and it is also a fact that they are very intelligent , so if that comment was aimed at me, thank you. 9. Last but not least, just in case you’re interested, I don’t own an assault type rifle and have no desire to. Dave Schwotzer Meredith

To the editor, Remember Bizarro World? This world of opposites from Superman Comics of the 1960s was cube-shaped and their motto was “Us do opposite of all Earthly things!” Bizarro World has come to the Statehouse in Concord, where the motto seems to be, “Us do the opposite of what government should do!” Democrats talk of themselves as saviors for the poor and downtrodden (the 99 percent), while painting Republicans as heartless and cold. So it should come as some surprise that the Democrats are fighting tooth and nail to repeal a program designed solely to expand education choices to children from families making less than 300 percent of the federal poverty level. Upper-income families have choices now, but few-lower income families do. The right education can lift a child up to full potential, and Democrats are opposed: Welcome to Bizarro World. Imagine your child going to a school where he is bullied relentlessly, yet you are powerless, lacking the resources to choose a better school. Imagine knowing there is a public school in the neighboring town that has an academic or extracurricular program that would greatly benefit your child but you can’t afford to move there. Imagine learning that there is a private school nearby that offers programs that would greatly help your autistic child, but even with the financial aid they offer, the cost is just out of your reach. Just today I learned of a woman who wants to use the new scholarship program to switch her child from a private school to a public school in the next town. The Democrats would say no, making her a slave to her zip code. Bizarro World. These circumstances are real: I could introduce you to these families,
and many others in similar circumstances. They are the sole reasons why I worked to pass the school choice scholarship bill last year. But this year the Democrats are voting in lock step to repeal that bill. It’s bad enough that they willfully and continually misrepresent the facts. It’s worse when you realize that they are saying to lowerincome families, “Too bad. We, not you, know what’s best.” But “best” for whom? Democrats argue that parental choice means depriving districts of state adequacy funding (currently $3,450). The Democrats are putting the interests of the public school bureaucracy ahead of the needs of children from lowerincome families. Republicans believe this is wrong. Republicans believe that our first and only focus must be on children as individuals. Children are our most precious resource, so it is also in the public’s interest that they attend school in the environment where they will do their best. Republicans understand that parents are in the best position to know what’s right for their children. It’s the Democrats who are only willing to allow wealthy parents to make that choice. Bizarro World. If you can afford to pay tuition at a school outside your district, Democrats say that’s perfectly okay. In fact, many of them do. They are trying very hard to ignore (and have you ignore) the fact that any child leaving public school for any reason has the same effect on state adequacy payments to that school. Yet they use “loss of aid” as the reason to stop lower-income children from leaving their public school. Tell your Democratic representatives and senators you think what they are doing is bizarre. It’s time they come back to Earth. Gregory Hill Northfield
Quality of care from all employees at LRGH was very professional To the editor, I would like to share a recent experience in regards to the care given to my husband, Bill, at LRGH. Two weeks ago he was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit through the Emergency Room. The service and care given from the moment we walked into the hospital was excellent. During his approximate week’s stay, he was cared for by doctors, specialists, techs, nurses, medical assistants, aides, etc.. The quality of care from ALL employees of
LRGH including housekeeping, linen, food service, cafeteria and volunteers was very professional and extremely caring. Each and every one of them went above and beyond, Hopefully, we won’t have to go back anytime soon, but if the need arises, we know we will be in good hands. Thank you to all of you, you are appreciated by many. Linda Knightly Gilford
Good for bipartisan effort to legalize the growing of hemp in U.S. To the editor, What do a Republican, a Libertarian and a couple of Democrats have in common? They are all sponsoring a bill that would legalize the growing of hemp in this country. Good for them! Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul have teamed up with a couple of senators from Oregon to federally legalize hemp. This plant is an unbelievable example of nature’s gifts to mankind. It can produce clean fuel, a high quality protein for animal and human food and one of the best edible oils that is rich
be converted into lubricating and fuel oils, plastics, building material, clothing and paper. It can be grown in just about any environment and requires very little attendance or pesticides. The U.S. is the world’s largest consumer of hemp products, which is grown just about everywhere in the world — except the United States where it is still illegal to grow, which begs the question why? The hemp laws were motivated by special interests, namely Dupont, the lumber industry and William Randolph Hearst, the newspaper magnate see next page

LACONIA — A 99-year-old former Belvedere Street woman filed suit earlier this month claiming her grand-niece abused her power of attorney and used the woman’s money for her own benefit. Marion Chartier, who lives in an assisted living facility in Vermont, also contends that Donna Stivali and her husband Peter withdrew $179,000 in equity from the home in 2004 and 2005 without Chartier’s knowledge or permission. She also contends Peter Stivali allowed an attachment of $3,585 to the house without her knowledge or consent. She asked the court to order the Stivalis to return $268,000 to her and Belknap County Judge James O’Neill ordered a temporary attachment to the Stivalis for $300,000 each until the matter is resolved. According to paperwork filed in Belknap County Superior Court, the Stivalis and their children initially moved into an upstairs apartment in Chartier’s home. Donna Stivali assisted Chartier, who lived alone but occasionally needed assistance, by driving Chartier to doctors appointments, purchasing groceries and necessities, and “eventually, in managing” her finances. In exchange for the assistance, Chartier charged the Stivali family $350 monthly that included utilities to live in her home with the agreement the family paid for its own groceries and personal items. In 2003, the Stivalis had difficulty paying the rent and Chartier, in what her attorney describes as her
attempt to help them, made a gift of the home to them reserving to her a rent-free life estate in the home. Pleadings indicate that shortly thereafter the Stivalis began charging Chartier $400 in rent and $400 for heat monthly. The complaint says in 2004 a “questionable” release of life estate was filed and recorded in the Belknap County registry of Deeds on April 16, 2004. Chartier said she never agreed to end her release of life estate, and since it was filed, the Stivalis has been taking over control of more and more of the home “forcing her into smaller and smaller living quarters.” In 2009, Chartier added Donna Stivali to her joint accounts so she could assist with her finances and paying her bills. She also said she cashed in a certificate of deposit and put the $20,703 in a passbook savings to which they both had access. Chartier said that between January and June of 2010 Donna Stivali withdrew $14,736 for her own benefit. On February 2, Chartier gave her nephew William Rodd her power of attorney and named Stivali as the alternate. On December 25, 2011, Rodd died and Donna Stivali became her power of attorney and as such, said Chartier’s attorney, was obligated to observe the standards of a prudent person for Chartier’s benefit. On January 6, 2012 and under the influence and direction of Stivali, Chartier removed $50,031 from one account and deposited it in an account to which

both women had access. Bank records show the majority of checks from that account were written by Donna Stivali. Chartier also had an account into which her Social Security checks were deposited and she thought that account was being used for her day to day needs. On January 4, 2013, pleadings say that the Stivalis took Chartier to Lakes Region General Hospital and “abandoned her in the emergency room.” After being under observation for a week, hospital staff called and told the Stivalis that Chartier didn’t need hospitalization but were told the Stivalis didn’t want Chartier back in the home. Complaints say they refused to assist the hospital in finding alternative living arrangements for her and failed to fill out paperwork, including financial documents needed to help her qualify for alternative living arrangements. William Rodd’s widow immediately agreed to help Chartier and on January 18, 2013 Chartier stripped Donna Stivali of her power of attorney and granted it to Natalie Rodd. Since January 18, Chartier has been living in an assisted living facility near Natalie Rodd in St. Johnsbury, Vt. Chartier said the day before she was taken to LRGH, $440 was taken from her account for “heat.” The day she went to LRGH, she said $400 was taken for “household” and cashed a counter check at the bank payable to cash for $7,400. Around January 20, 2013 and after the Stivalis refused to allow Chartier back into the house, $200 was taken from the account through an ATM, leaving $98.11 from the original balance of $50,031 in January of 2012. Peter Stivali’s attorney David Osman replied by saying Chartier’s petition is invalid because it was signed by her attorneys — the firm of Normandin, Cheney and O’Neil, PLLC — and not her and that the pleadingz were somewhat vague and doesn’t see next page

“I continue to have some optimism about the economy despite the efforts of Washington to kill it, because the labor market continues to improve,” said Joel Naroff, chief economist at Naroff Economic Advisers The latest indication of the job market’s strength came Thursday in a government report that the number of Americans seeking weekly unemployment benefits fell 22,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 344,000. Applications for unemployment have fallen steadily in recent months. The four-week average has declined nearly 11 percent since November. At the same time, employers added an average of 200,000 jobs a month from November through January. That was up from about 150,000 in the previous three months.

were targets to be neutralized.” Manning admitted sending hundreds of thousands of Iraq and Afghanistan battlefield reports, State Department diplomatic cables, other classified records and two battlefield video clips to WikiLeaks in 2009 and 2010 while working as an intelligence analyst in Baghdad. The battlefield reports were the first documents Manning decided to leak. He said he sent them to WikiLeaks after contacting The Washington Post and The New York Times. He said he felt a reporter at the Post didn’t take him seriously, and a message he left for news tips at the Times was not returned. Manning said he was appalled by a 2007 combat video of an aerial assault by a U.S. helicopter that killed 11 men, including a Reuters news photographer and his driver. The Pentagon concluded the troops mistook the camera equipment for weapons. “The most alarming aspect of the video to me was the seemingly delightful bloodlust the aerial weapons team happened to have,” Manning said, adding that the soldiers’ actions “seemed similar to a child torturing ants with a magnifying glass.”

LEAKS from page 2 policy in general,” Manning said. A military judge, Col. Denise Lind, is weighing whether to accept Manning’s guilty plea to reduced charges on 10 counts. Even then, military prosecutors can still pursue a court-martial on the remaining 12 charges. One of those is aiding the enemy, which carries a possible life sentence. Prosecutors haven’t disclosed their plans. Manning said he didn’t think the information would harm the U.S. and he decided to release it because he was disturbed by the conduct of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and the seeming disregard by American troops for the lives of ordinary people. “I felt we were risking so much for people who seemed unwilling to cooperate with us, leading to frustration and hatred on both sides,” he said. “I began to become depressed at the situation we found ourselves mired in year after year. In attempting counterinsurgency operations, we became obsessed with capturing and killing human targets on lists.” He added: “I wanted the public to know that not everyone living in Iraq

LRCC’s new Advanced Manufacturing program receives major donation from Aavid Thermalloy BY ROGER AMSDEN FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — An advanced manufacturing program which is being developed at Lakes Region Community College received a major donation recently from Aavid Thermalloy, one of 22 Lakes Region manufacturing firms working with the college to develop a curriculum that will help provide a steady stream of workers with the skills to meet their present and future needs. The 8,000 pound Matsuura RA III Vertical Milling Machine, which right up until it was moved was being used to turn out products for Aavid’s advanced thermal solutions line in Laconia, was so massive that it actually required knocking out sections of an exterior and interior wall so that it could be brought into the first floor of the academic building which currently houses the college’s fire science, computer and electrical programs. Don Brough, who is project director for the advanced manufacturing program, said that the milling machine will be a key component of the advanced manufacturing lab which is being put together at the college and which will occupy half of the first floor space of the building. ‘’Aavid and a lot of other advanced manufacturing firms in the area are being very supportive of the new program and helping us shape it so that it helps meet their needs for skilled workers,’’ says Brough. He says that the school is one of seven community colleges in the state which have formed a consortium which received a $19.9 million federal Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grant in 2010. Funds from the grant are being used to develop or update advanced manufacturing curriculums and laboratories across the Community College System of New Hampshire. Brough, TAACCCT project director at LRCC, says the college received about $950,000 as its share of the grant and is working to develop a curriculum and hire instructors for the programs it is developing in cooperation with local businesses.
Carl Daniels, Energy Services Technology head at LRCC and former Aavid Thermalloy employee, is heading up the Advanced Manufacturing Department. “College personnel appreciate Aavid’s benevolence,” says Daniels, adding ‘’the new milling machine will be used extensively to educate students in state-of-the-art manufacturing.” Brough said that the Lakes Region historically has been a strong manufacturing area lost a lot of that during the 1970s and 1980s when the piece work kinds of jobs with their repetitive tasks went overseas. ‘’There was once a machining program at the college but it closed down due to lack of students,’’ says Brough, who can recall working at one of those jobs at AllenRogers in downtown Laconia during summers when he was attending Duquesne University in Pittsburgh and he ran turning machines that made golf tees. He said that the manufacturing jobs which remain in the area are high-skilled jobs which are also highly paid, averaging $75,000 per year. But all of the area’s major manufacturers are facing worker shortages as older workers retire and fewer young people are coming through to replace them. Brough says that a three-tiered approach is being developed in the school’s program. The first component is a WorkReadyNH program free to people ages 18 and over who are unemployed or underemployed and who are not full-time students. It provides professional assessments to participants in technical and soft skill competencies, provides 60 hours of training and then awards tiered certifications, which job seekers can cite as part of the application process and which can help employers quickly sort resumes. A gateway program aimed at decreasing unemployment, it is considered an accessible first step of sorts toward earning a full degree. The next step up is a tuition-based certificate program for those looking for careers in advanced manufacturing. Brough said that it is a year long program divided into two semesters see next page

SPORTS Fay’s Boat Yard Mite 1 Lakers finish regular season in 2nd place
Challenge denied: Belmont falls to Gilford
The Fay’s Boat Yard Mite 1 Lakers hockey team battled against the NH Avalanche Squirt team on Saturday night in their final game of the GSL regular season in the Squirt 4 division. The Lakers were first on the board with two goals within five seconds of each other by Matthew Hale who netted all six of the Lakers goals in the game. Lakers forwards Breanna Ricker, Zachary Spicuzza and Kameron Young battled hard in the second period along with defenseman Andrew Rowley and Jaden Morin to keep the Avalanche out of the Lakers zone but the Avs fought hard and tied the game in the 2nd period with three unanswered goals. Intensity increased in the third period when both teams put their fourth goal on the board with the Lakers forwards Logan Stroud, Jacob Allison, Liam Lichocki and Evan Guerin fighting to keep the puck away from the Avalanche. With just a minute and a half left in the game defenseman Peyton Vachon, Owen Guerin and Griffin Tondreau worked hard to try and keep the Avs deep in their own zone. Hale put the Lakers ahead with the Lakers fifth goal and then put the sixth and final goal for the Lakers on the board with .007 seconds left despite the Lakers being short-handed by one player due to a penalty. Goalie Patrick Goodwin saw a lot of action and made 18 saves in the game. With this win the Lakers clinched 2nd place in GSL Tier 4 and will start their quest to win in the playoffs on March 8 at the Everett Arena.

GILFORD — After the game, Belmont High School boys’ varsity coach Derek Hamilton conceded that his team’s season, which had ended moments earlier after a 51-43 playoff loss to Gilford, was a strong step forward from last year, when the Red Raiders had won only four games and were left out of tournament play. This year, Belmont won twice as many games and had the experience Tuesday of winning a playoff game at home, knocking off Fall Mountain Regional. Still, he couldn’t help put wonder, had

things gone slightly differently, if his 13th seeded team could have pulled an upset last night against the 4th seeded Gilford. At the start of the fourth quarter, Belmont trailed by five, 32-27. With hot-shooting Bret Spaulding in the midst of a 19-point game, the Red Raiders needed only a couple of opportunities to take the lead and perhaps move on to the quarter-final round. It wasn’t to be, though. “Some of those bounces didn’t go the right way,” said Hamilton. Spaulding started the game hot, hitting two threesee next page

Athletes, parents and LHS staff celebrated the season with a gathering at the high school. The event was organized by the SACHEM’s Pride team, a leadership team that works to create a strong academic and social culture in the school.
Gilford a 17-16 edge. Though tenuous, the lead would prove lasting. The score favored the Eagles at the half, 23-18. Belmont threatened in the third, coming within three points after another Spaulding three-pointer with 4:45 left in the quarter, answering a three sank in the previous possession by Gilford’s Sam Prescott. But Orton again put up a determined effort, scoring with a layup with 3:40 left in the third, then a harddriving basket with just under two minutes left. In the fourth, Gilford showed poise and took home the win. Josh Joyce, who would end the night as Gilford’s leading scorer, helped secure the result by scoring half of his 18 points in the final quarter. Orton, with 13, was the second-highest scorer for Gilford. “I think we lost some steam down the stretch,” said Hamilton, adding, “I’m proud of the guys and where we’ve come.” Gilford coach Chip Veazey said Belmont gave his team a good run. “It was really a tough game, Belmont’s a tough team, we knew it was going to be a battle.” He praised Orton’s performance, whose rebounds and baskets came at pivotal points in the game, as well as Joyce, whose fourth-quarter production “gave us a bit of breathing room.” There were other players on the roster whose roles in the game didn’t translate into score sheet statistics. The pestering defense of Matt Troiano, who scored eight, disrupted Belmont’s perimeter play, and Cam Partridge, held scoreless, earned his coach’s praise by limiting Spaulding’s influence. “Cam made him work,” said Veazey. Gilford moves on the quarter-final round and will host fifth-seeded Campbell on Saturday night at 7 p.m. The winner of that game will face either Mascoma Valley Regional or the top-seeded Berlin in the semi-final round, held Tuesday night at Southern New Hampshire University.
Bergeron leads Bruins to 2-1 OT win over Senators BOSTON (AP) — Patrice Bergeron scored the winning goal with 1:21 left in overtime after a replay review, lifting the surging Boston Bruins to a 2-1 win over the Ottawa Senators on Thursday night. Nathan Horton scored the other goal for Boston, which won its fourth straight and was coming off a 4-1 road trip. The Bruins are 13-2-2 this season. Tuukka Rask made 30 saves for the Bruins, including a pair of stellar stops in OT. Jim O’Brien scored for the Senators, who had a five-game winning streak snapped.
Bergeron deflected a shot from the left circle that broke off Ottawa goalie Robin Lehner and trickled across the goal line. The crowd roared, the light went on and horn sounded, but the referee behind the net waved it off. After a review, replays clearly showed the puck slid across when Lehner reached back and knocked it into the net before pulling it back out. Lehner, recalled from the AHL on Feb. 22 after top goaltender Craig Anderson was sidelined with a sprained ankle, stopped 44 shots.

KNIFE from page one on knives, effectively making all knives “legal.” To highlight his point, he took a pocket knife from his briefcase, opened its three-and-a-half inch blade and held it up as if it were an umbrella. “This is essentially legal on campus,” he was recorded to say. By the time Jeff St. Cyr, chairman of the board, reminded Miller that the policy allows adults to carry knives but “not having a knife open” and asked him to put it away he had already done so, after displaying it for less than 30 seconds. Reporting on the meeting in The Baysider weekly newspaper, Tim Croes made no mention of the incident, writing only that Miller was the only member of the board to vote in favor of forbidding all weapons on school grounds. But, the video made its way to Facebook and by Wednesday had reached WMUR-TV, then the Associated Press. Most reported Miller as “pulling,” “flashing” or brandishing” the knife to the distress of parents of schoolchildren. Speaking on television, Karl ingoldsby said “it was a very large knife” while Keith Dube said Miller’s conduct was “ridiculous” and called for a “reprimand.” With no pun intended, Maureen Paul remarked “you can make your point a different way. . . verbally, but not by brandishing a knife.” Dube, who did not attend the meeting, said yesterday that after seeing the video he was troubled that “an elected school board member would be brandishing a knife at a board meeting,” He believed that if a member of the public were to do the same thing, “he
would be escorted from the building by the police.” He conceded that Miller was expressing a legitimate opinion, but “he just went about it the wrong way. At the very least he showed poor judgement.” As a write-in candidate, Dube last year challenged Miller for the seat on the School Board but fell 90 votes shy. He said that as a member of the Budget Committee, Miller was a critic of of the School Board and since joining the board was the lone member to recommend against the $18.7-million renovation and expansion of Alton Central School on the school district warrant in March. Commenting on the incident with the knife, Dube conceded “if he was a different person, it might have been handled differently.” “They’re really shooting the messenger,” Miller said, stressing that twice the other four members of the School Board voted against his proposal to ban all weapons from school property. “Zero tolerance. That’s my goal,” he said. “I’m the guy trying to make sure we don’t become another Newtown or Aurora.” Miller said that when he displayed the knife “the other members were not offended. I told them they should be offended,” he continued. “I was offended.” Dube said Police Ryan Heath informed him that he has referred the incident to the New Hampshire State Police. Meanwhile, he remarked that “I didn’t want him on the School Board in the first place” and suggested he should consider resigning. But, while noting that “lots of parents are very upset,” Dube “there is nothing organized at this point.”
POPE from page 2 Cheers went up as the 85-year-old Benedict stepped out onto the palace balcony and, arms outstretched, declared his papacy was nearing the end. “I am simply a pilgrim beginning the last leg of his pilgrimage on this Earth,” he said. Then giving a final blessing, he declared: “Grazie e buona notte” — “Thank you and good night” in Italian. It was a remarkable bookend to a papacy that began on April 19, 2005, with a similarly meek speech delivered from the loggia overlooking St. Peter’s Square, where the newly elected Benedict said he was but a “simple humble worker in the vineyard of the Lord.” Over his eight-year papacy, Benedict tried to set the church on a more traditional course, convinced that all the ills afflicting it — sexual abuse, dwindling numbers of priests and empty pews — were a result of a misreading of the reforms of the Second Vatican Council.
His successor is likely to follow in his footsteps, given that the vast majority of the 115 cardinals who will elect the next pope were appointed by Benedict himself and share his conservative bent. For the time being, the governance of the church shifts to Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the camerlengo, or chamberlain, who along with the College of Cardinals will guide the church and make plans starting Monday for the conclave to elect the 266th leader of the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics. One of Bertone’s first acts was to lock the papal apartment inside the Vatican. In another task steeped in symbolism, he will ensure that Benedict’s papal ring and seal are destroyed. Benedict’s journey into retirement began with a final audience with his cardinals, where he sought to defuse concerns about his future role and the possible conflicts arising from having both a reigning and a retired pope living side-by-side inside the Vatican.

VOTERS from page one Kingsbury, who has run for office 18 times, but elected only once — to the state House in 2010 only to lose his bid for re-election last November — said he will turn over the names of those voters whose letters were returned to the City Clerk’s office, the Belknap County Attorney, the Laconia Police Department and the state Secretary of State’s office in Concord. Kingsbury said that when the voter ID bill came up during his term in the Legislature, the bill’s opponents maintained that voter fraud did not exist in New Hampshire. But Kingsbury says that given that 60 — or 4 percent — of those who registered on Election Day could not be contacted by mail less than four months after the election proves election fraud is real. Kingsbury says that he hopes the results of his mailing will encourage lawmakers who support stricter voter identification laws to work to get a bill passed. “Anybody in the Legislature can have this proof that there is voter fraud,” he said. City Clerk Mary Reynolds said the fact that some of Kingsbury’s letters were returned does not necessarily indicate vote fraud. “The address they give when then register is where (they) live on that day. They may have moved since,” she said. The letters which Kingsbury mailed out in handaddressed envelopes in December and January asked the voters to support him if he runs for office in the future but his real goal not was not to attract supporters, it was simply to find out how many people don’t really live where they say they live. Reynolds explained that those registering at the polls are required to fill out a registration application and to verify their identity, citizenship or domicile. Those unable to provide some form of documentary proof, such as a photo ID, must fill out an affidavit indicating they are who they say they are and the polling place moderator is required to affirm that affidavit. Reynolds said that three days after last November’s election Kingsbury requested a copy of each affidavit submitted on Election Day. But that request was denied when, after consulting with the Secretary of State’s Office, it was determined the affidavits were not public information under the state’s Right-to-Know law, she said. Reynolds referred questions regarding the affidavits themselves to David Hough, the chairman of the Supervisors of the Checklist. Efforts to reach Hough BRISTOL from page one He said the woman told police she was walking toward downtown Bristol from the area of Cumberland Farms when the man pulled up and offered her a ride. She said he got out of his car and tried to grab her arm but she was able to pull away from him and get to her home safely.

for comment were not immediately successful. Kingsbury also requested and was provided copies of the marked checklists from each of the city’s six wards, for which he paid $125, Reynolds said. In addition to mailing letters to the 1,395 voters who registered at the polls on Election Day, Kingsbury said that he mailed letters to another 2,700 unique addresses in the city where voters already registered are shown to be residing, based on checklist records. Out of those 2,700 letters, 115 were returned to Kingsbury as undeliverable, he said. According to the City Clerk’s Office, there are 9,674 registered voters in Laconia, of whom 7,681 voted in last November’s election. On Wednesday Reynolds said that she will turn over any information she gets from Kingsbury to the Supervisors of the Checklist, “who I am sure will be in contact with the (state) Attorney General’s office for guidance on how proceed.” Assistant Attorney General Steve LaBonte said that his office investigates all formal complaints of election law violations. Complaints can even be filed on-line, through the state AG’s website, he said. LaBonte said that if he is contacted by election officials in Laconia he would direct them to turn over whatever material they had and in addition he would likely also speak directly with Kingsbury, as the one initiating the complaint. “Once we receive a complaint we would open up an investigation,” he said, noting that the investigation could take “a few months” to complete. He said that his office is already investigating a number of complaints arising out of the September primary and the November election. When asked why he plans to provide the information he has gathered to Belknap County Attorney Melissa Countway Guldbrandsen, Kingsbury said that she could convene a grand jury to look into the allegations of voter fraud. As to the purpose of also giving his information to Laconia police, he said, “They’re the ones who will have to arrest anyone who needs to be arrested.” Interestingly, state law requires the Secretary of State’s office to mail a first-class letter to all election day registrants who did not present a photo ID at the polls instructing those voters to return written confirmation within 45 days that they registered and voted on Election Day. Names of those voters whose letters are returned as undeliverable or who fail to confirm their registration must be referred to the the Attorney General’s Office for investigation and possible prosecution for vote fraud. When told that the law already requires the Secretary of State to verify the authenticity same-day voter registrations and to refer any suspected cases to the AG, Kingsbury said prosecuting someone for vote fraud in New Hampshire is virtually unheard-of. Sitting in the cramped front room of his Union Avenue apartment Tuesday, Kingsbury readily acknowledged that even if the 60 voters whose letter were returned had not been allowed to vote it would not have changed the outcome of the last November’s election. “But many elections are won or lost by just a few votes,” he said. Asked whether it was worth it for him to spend the money — about $2,000 — for the copies of voter checklist, as well as for the postage and stationary, Kingsbury responded, “What I have done is to get it recorded that there is voter fraud” in the state, he said.

March 15 STEM & Manufacturing Career Panel & Open House at Huot Center
Susan Ross, LHS senior, is a Huot Technical Center student in the Manufacturing Engineering Technology Capstone program. Over the past four years, she has been enrolled in HTC’s Principles of Engineering, Open Engineering, and Robotics. She is looking forward to the STEM Career Panel on March 15 as it will be an opportunity to gain advice from the professionals as she enters college and starts her career in Chemical Engineering. She has been accepted to WPI, Amherst, UConn, Lowell, Buffalo, URI, and University of New Haven. Her goal is to attend Northeastern and she is anxiously waiting to hear from them soon. When asked how the Huot Technical Center has helped her, she expressed “it has helped to narrow down my career path and gain a sense of the different types of engineering and how it relates to society.” The project she is most proud of is the Eiffel Tower replica in the background, made out of bass wood, which she designed by reading blue prints. She claims that perseverance and a lot of patience helped her see this project to the end. (Courtesy photo)
LACONIA — A career exploration panel for high school students will be offered by the 200x2020 Initiative on Friday, March 15 (snow date is Monday, March 18) at the Huot Technical Center to provide information about careers in Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) and Manufacturing. Students from any Huot Center sending school may attend during their school’s regularly scheduled block at the Huot. Permission slips are required for this event and may be obtained through each high school guidance department. Permission slips are due back by March 12. The panel will be comprised of a variety of local professionals currently employed in high-tech fields, including engineers, programmers, and managers at several local manufacturing facilities, as well as a
Local discussion group following ‘The Bible’ television mini-series
LACONIA — The Bible is an epic five-week, 10 hour television miniseries premiering this Sunday, March 3, at 8 p.m. on the History Channel. Each week the History Channel will show episodes on Sunday and Wednesday nights. Lifetime will also show episodes on Monday nights. Here in the Lakes Region, people interested in knowing more about what they see on the Mini-series are invited to join a discussion group that will meet every Tuesday evening at 7 p.m. following the Sunday filming. The discussion group will meet at the Skate Escape meeting room, located at 161 Court Street, Laconia. This discussion group is sponsored by the Community Fellowship Group and is free and open to everyone. Andrew Matthews, M.Div. a teacher and communicator with over 25 years of experience in Biblical studies will be leading the discussion each night starting on March 5. For more information about this discussion group contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call(603) 455-0758. Created by producers Mark Burnett (four-time Emmy award winner: Survivor, The Apprentice) and Roma Downey (star of Touched by an Angel), the miniseries includes an international cast of actors. The Bible miniseries is not a documentary, it is a scripted, acted docudrama filmed on location in the Middle East and Morocco. Inspired by re-watching the classic Ten Commandments film, Mark Burnett and Roma Downey set out to show the scarlet thread of redemption found in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, using the latest special effects and quality film-making techniques.
civil engineer, an engineer from PSNH, and representatives of the advanced manufacturing programs at the Huot Technical Center and Lakes Region Community College. In addition, the Huot Technical Center will host an open house on March 15 from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. for parents and community members interested in learning more about their unique four-year Manufacturing Engineering Technology and Pre-Engineering Programs that prepare students for high-tech careers. The Huot Technical Center accepts students from Belmont, Franklin, Gilford, Inter-Lakes, Laconia, and Winnisquam Regional high schools. The STEM & Manufacturing career panel is the third of four career exploration panels organized by the 200x2020 Initiative for the 2012-13 academic year. The panels are designed to provide information and guidance to high school students seeking to learn more about local career options. The first panel of the year was in November and focused on law enforcement and public safety. The second panel was in January and highlighted
careers in architecture and construction. The final career panel for this school year will be on May 3rd and will focus on arts, audio/video technology & communications. The 200x2020 Initiative is a workforce development partnership between Lakes Region United Way, Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce, Belknap EDC, Lakes Region Community College, the Huot Technical Center, Greater Meredith Career Partnership Program, Lakes Region Community Services Council, Project Extra!, NHWorks, and many school-to-career coordinators and guidance counselors from our local schools. The goal of the partnership is to get a minimum of 200 businesses signed on by 2020 to provide local students access to a full range of vocational, technical and occupational experiences throughout the school years to support our region’s long-term workforce development needs. In addition to the career exploration panels, 200x2020 is currently developing an on-line database of high school internship and job shadow opportunities in the Lakes Region which will be available starting in the 2013-14 school year.

by Darby Conley
By Holiday Mathis Some people wish they knew what others were thinking. You’re different. You have a pretty good sense of what others are thinking, not to mention feeling, and you’re not always sure you want to know. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When you participate in nature, you do not do so as an outsider and curator of the wild. You are nature, too. At least for some of the time, you will feel at peace with your place in the natural order. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your mind is open. That doesn’t mean it’s empty. It is more challenging to be open-minded when you know as much about the world as you do. But you succeed in this because you let your curiosity lead. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Just because you believe an idea to be true doesn’t mean you shouldn’t question it. You’ll have to poke around a bit for the truth, but when you find it, the sunshiny light will pour in. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It amazes you that people often don’t know what will make them happy. Part of the reason is that there is so much misinformation in the world on the subject. You’ll educate someone on the matter today. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 1). The warm, playful air about you attracts like-minded friends. The needs of your heart will be met in your professional life in April. You could even move for work and find that your new environs are just what were needed for personal success. June begins a deep renovation. Thankful loved ones celebrate you in August. Scorpio and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 30, 2, 38 and 11.
by Chad Carpenter
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You mastered the art of being an exciting person long before you knew it was an art. You might say that excitement just comes with the territory of being an Aries. Others expect it from you now. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ve heard that times are tough, but you must be tougher than the times, because you go forward undaunted -maybe even a little pushy. If anything, the times seem to be intimidated by you today. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You create loveliness in your personal environment, and not because you’re an artistic elitist but because it’s life affirming to do so. Through the beautiful tone you set, you’ll help others feel good. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Feelings come and go. If you have someone in your life whose love for you is more constant than the passing emotions of the moment, that is something to celebrate. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). As you stroll a rather ordinary setting, you’ll feel out of place. True, you were meant for the extraordinary. But sometimes it’s up to you to make the environmental transformation happen. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The expression is true: The days are long, but the years are short. What can you do for 15 minutes a day that, by this time next year, will have added up to something remarkable? LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You can be sure that your presence is a comfort to someone. You’ve suspected this, but it’s wonderful to hear it outright and to feel the truth of it. You’ll love knowing that you’ve helped. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).

FRANKLIN — Thomas Eugene Byers, March 29, 1950 - February 25, 2013. Tom was born an adventurer in San Francisco, CA. He loved to travel to destinations unknown and believed it was your responsibility to explore the world if it took your last dime. He believed you should go to a show, eat at a fancy restaurant and live life to its fullest, like it was your last day because at the end of the road you can’t take it with you. Tom was also a basic man at heart, who loved to sit with his children for a picnic of sourdough bread, hard salami and loaf of Velveeta. Tears would come to his eyes as he explained to them that they would never fully understand his love until they had children of their own. Tom was a master artisan of wood and self proclaimed cabinet maker, although his gifts of art were so much more. He loved long bike rides to the beach, English muffin pizzas with everything on them and listening to the “Star Spangled Banner” which always brought tears to his eyes.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, March 1, 2013— Page 19
Dear Annie: I was just 18 years old when a routine doctor’s visit exposed off-the-chart high blood pressure and landed me in the emergency room. As a carefree teen in my first year of college, I felt healthy and assumed it couldn’t possibly be anything more than a little stress. Even the ER doctor took a look at me and said he was sure there couldn’t be anything wrong. Imagine the shock when the blood tests showed I had stage-four kidney disease. I was dangerously close to needing dialysis or a kidney transplant, but I had no clue that I’d been suffering from a silent killer. Kidney disease often goes undetected because symptoms may not appear until the kidneys are actually failing. One in three American adults is at risk due to high blood pressure or diabetes, two of the leading causes. The good news is that early detection and proper treatment can slow the progress. My battle with kidney disease has turned me into a fitness guru and an advocate for kidney patients. I now do something active every day. By following a careful diet and working closely with my doctors to manage my high blood pressure, I have been able to prevent further damage. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and positive attitude can affect your medical prognosis in the best possible way. I can attest to it. Will you please encourage your readers to get their kidneys checked? March is National Kidney Month and March 14th is World Kidney Day. The National Kidney Foundation is urging Americans to learn about risk factors and get their kidneys checked with a simple urine and blood test. For more information on these tests and staying healthy, and for a schedule of free kidney health screenings across the country, please suggest that your readers visit the National Kidney Foundation at kidney.org. -- Leslie Field, Bradbury, Calif. Dear Leslie Field: Thank you for reminding our readers
how important it is to get regular checkups to make sure their systems are running smoothly. More than 26 million Americans have kidney disease, and most don’t know it. People often don’t consider their kidney health, yet it can make a tremendous difference in the quality of one’s life. We hope our readers will check the National Kidney Foundation website for more information. Dear Annie: Now that I’m part of the over-50 crowd, I’m finding it increasingly difficult to read the expiration dates on goods, even with my reading glasses on. Particularly troublesome are the expiration dates that are at the bottom of a white box where the numbers are indented and also in white. The manufacturers would do us baby boomers a great favor by marking the expiration dates in an easy-to-read location, preferably in black ink with larger letters and numbers. If we can see them, we will replace them more readily when they expire, which would be a boon for business, as well. -Maryanne Dear Maryanne: You’ve made an excellent argument, and we hope it wins over the product manufacturers. We’re on your side. Dear Annie: “Faithful Wife” said her husband of 44 years was showing some intense behaviors around an old flame, spending $12,000 on a facelift and accusing his wife of lesbianism. If these behaviors are a continuation or exacerbation of old behaviors, I am right with you on your advice. But if they are changes from a man who used to be reasonably “normal,” then I would suspect frontotemporal dementia, of which these sorts of socially disruptive disinhibitions are classic symptoms. -- MA, LSA

NOFA-NH Winter Conference at Laconia Middle School today & Saturday
LACONIA — The Northeast Organic Farming Association’s Winter Conference, the largest organic agricultural event of the year, will be held today and Saturday at Laconia Middle School. Hosted by the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New Hampshire (NOFA-NH), the event will attract farmers, gardeners and folks of all ages and experience levels from throughout New England who care about their local food systems, sustainability and organic farming. The theme of this year’s Winter Conference is Resilience/Building a Resilient Community. Friday’s fullday intensive workshops are geared towards farmers, serious gardeners and homesteaders, with topics including hands-on tractor maintenance, food production, marketing and management. Friday evening features a ‘Mixer for Farmers’ organized by the NOFA-NH Beginner Organic Farmer program and The Greenhorns, hosted by Prescott Farm in Laconia; and an open-to-the-public lecture by Ecologist and Author, Tom Wessels.
Saturday morning starts with Keynote Speaker, Kristin Kimball, who will share her book The Dirty Life: On Farming, Food, and Love. Three sets of workshops will follow, on all manner of topics that illustrate the finer points of resiliency.

Designed by Fran Orenstein from Unfed Design, GMP logo decals were distributed to those in attendance. “It is our hope that they will be displayed on the doors of businesses and/or a cars or trucks in support of the Greater Meredith Program”, said Liz Lapham, Executive Director of the GMP. In his remarks, Chris Kelly, President of the GMP Board, commented that in the past years, GMP has invested over $100,000 back into the community through various programs and projects. The Career Partnership Program, The Courtyard on Main and the Meredith Roundabout were all recipients of awards in 2012. Following a talk by Dennis Delay, an economist from the NH Center for Public Policy, Kelly acknowledged all the GMP volunteers and board members for their in kind donations of time and talents as the “backbone of our organization”. For his dedication to the Career Partnership Program and his uncanny ability to sell tax credits to keep the Career Partnership Program healthy and ongoing the Greater Meredith Program’s Volunteer of the Year Award went to Ted Fodero. The 2012 GMP Board Member of the Year Award was presented to Rusty McLear for his continuous support of the GMP. Among his many contributions, one that was cited was his idea to create a Beautifi-
