Dying? Belknap 1 of 4 New Hampshire counties where number of deaths has been exceeding births By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

DURHAM — Belknap County is among four counties in New Hampshire — Carroll, Coos and Sullivan are the others — and 1,135 counties, or 36-percent of all counties, in the United States, which yesterday were widely described

in headlines as “dying.” Kenneth Johnson, senior demographer at the Carsey Institute of the University of New Hampshire, drawing on data collected by the Census Bureau, reported that in these counties the number of deaths exceeded the number of births, representing a natural decrease

in population. Never have so many counties been marked by a natural decrease in population, he found. Moreover, for the first time in American history, deaths topped births in two entire states — Maine and West Virginia. Johnson said yesterday that despite the natural decrease,

Belknap County was the only one of the four “dying” counties in the state where the population increased — from 56,325 in 2000 to 60,088 in 2010 — despite the natural decrease. “In-migration accounted for the growth,” he said, describing Belknap County as a “retiresee dyING page 8

N.D. close to banning abortions at 6 weeks

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota on Friday moved closer to adopting what would be the most restrictive abortion laws in the country, with lawmakers sending the Republican governor measures that could set the state up for a costly legal battle over the U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized the procedure. The North Dakota Senate overwhelmingly approved two anti-abortion bills Friday, one banning abortions as early as six weeks into a pregnancy and another prohibiting women from having the procedure because a fetus has a genetic defect, such as Down syndrome. North Dakota would be the first state in the U.S. to adopt such laws. Supporters said their goal is to challenge the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion up until a fetus is considered viable, usually at 22 to 24 weeks, though anti-abortion activists elsewhere have expressed concern about the strategy. “It’s a good day for babies,” said Rep. Bette see ABORTION page 9

Vatican critical of ‘left-wing’ reaction to new pope VATICAN CITY (AP) — The honeymoon that Pope Francis has enjoyed since his remarkable election hit a bump Friday, with the Vatican lashing out at what it called a defamatory and “anti-clerical left-wing” media campaign questioning his actions during Argentina’s murderous military dictatorship. On Day 2 of the Francis pontificate, the Vatican denounced news reports in Argentina and beyond resurrecting allegations that the former Jorge Mario Bergoglio failed to openly confront the junta respon-

sible for kidnapping and killing thousands of people in a “dirty war” to eliminate leftist opponents. Bergoglio, like most Argentines, didn’t publicly confront the dictators who ruled from 1976-83, while he was the leader of the country’s Jesuits. And human rights activists differ on how much blame he personally deserves. Top church leaders had endorsed the junta and some priests even worked alongside torturers inside secret prisons. Nobody has produced any evidence sug-

gesting Bergoglio had anything to do with such crimes. But many activists are angry that as archbishop of Buenos Aires for more than a decade, he didn’t do more to support investigations into the atrocities. On Thursday, the old ghosts resurfaced. A group of 44 former military and police officers on trial for torture, rape and murder in a concentration camp in Cordoba province in the 1970s wore the yellow-and-white ribbons of the papal flag in Francis’ honor.

NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stock markets fell Friday, ending the longest winning streak for the Dow Jones industrial average in nearly 17 years. The Dow dropped 25.03 points, or 0.2 percent, to 14,514.11 The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 2.5 points, or 0.2 percent, to 1,560.70, just shy of an all-time high from October 2007. The Nasdaq composite index dropped nine points, or 0.3 percent, to 3,249.

The Dow had notched a 10-day winning streak through Thursday, its longest since November 1996. The string of wins pushed the blue-chip index up 484 points, or 3.4 percent, to a Thursday close of 14,539.14. The index’s closing price on Feb. 28, just before the rally began, was 14,054.49. Trading Friday was tentative because investors feared that rising inflation could cause the Federal Reserve to retreat from policies aimed at boosting markets. The

government said that consumer prices increased in February at the fastest pace in more than three years. The increase was driven by a spike in gas prices; the core index, which excludes the volatile energy and food categories, increased more modestly. But both figures rose 2 percent compared with a year earlier, enough to get investors’ attention, said Peter Tchir, who runs the hedge fund TF see STOCKS page 12

BARRINGTON, N.H. (AP) — Police in Barrington, N.H., say a faulty oven appears to be the cause of two deaths from carbon monoxide poisoning. Police and fire departments responded

to a medical aid call at a home Monday night. They found David and Barbara Miller dead at the scene. The Millers were both 61. The couple’s son said he wasn’t able to

get ahold of his parents for a couple of days. When he arrived at the house Monday, he found his dad’s body upstairs and his mom’s body downstairs.

Dow doesn’t do much for Doug “It’s a sign,” exclaims a February Associated Press story — a sign that our economy is “healing.” “It signals that things are getting back to normal,” added a delighted market analyst. And a March 4 New York Times report heralded it as “a golden age.” The “it” they’re hailing is the Dow, that mystical force believed by faithful Dowists to be “The Way” — the provider of good fortune, often bestowing its magical beneficence by magical means. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is the holy measure of corporate stock prices, and it is now smiling warmly on its acolytes. Last week, the Dow Jones Average reached a new high, having regained every dime of the $11 trillion that Wall Street investors had lost in the 2007 crash. “Hallelujah,” shout the devout. “All praise the Dow!” Unless, of course, your wealth is dependent not on stock prices, but on wages. In that case, you’re among the majority of Americans who’re more concerned about the Doug Jones Average. Forget the buzz about “a golden age” — Doug, Darcy, Diego, Deewanna and all the other Joneses can’t even afford to enter the Golden Arches, for they’re still mired in the Great Job Depression that Wall Street’s crash caused. Washington rushed to the rescue of the financial elites, but the Joneses are still getting double-stiffed by Washington policymakers and by the very elites Washington continues to coddle. The GOP House refuses to talk about a minimal tax hike on the superrich, but members had no qualms about jacking up the payroll taxes on millions of workaday people. Meanwhile, even as corporate profits have rocketed up by 20 percent a year since the end of 2008, the chieftains are still refusing to increase hiring and are holding down wages. As a result, the share of America’s total income that goes to workers has now tumbled to the lowest level in nearly half a century. United Technologies (one of the 30 corporations whose financial performances are measured to calculate the Dow Jones Averages) is a force in that knockdown. This industrial giant, fed a regular diet of fat government contracts, has enjoyed annual revenue increases of some $2 billion a year since 2005, yet rather than increasing its workforce, CEO Louis Chenevert is shedding workers. Last month, only four days after announcing that United Tech’s stock price had leaped to a record high, the corporation revealed that it will fire 3,000 employees this year, on top of the 4,000 dumped in 2012. That is the harsh math behind

such recent smiley-face headlines as this one: “Household wealth back at pre-recession levels.” Oh, joy — we’re all rich again! Or not. The article attributes the gain in household wealth to “surging stock prices.” But before you start ripping up your floorboards in hopes of finding your share of this bounty, read deeper into the article to learn that the Dow doesn’t do much at all for the Doug. In fact, the wealthiest 10 percent of households own 80 percent of all corporate stocks. Harsher yet is the way the corporate powers are treating those financially stretched Americans who’re looking not for a bundle of wealth, but just a decent job. Today’s massive backlog of unemployed and underemployed workers allows corporations to bring in hoards of topquality applicants and literally toy with them. It’s now common for a job-seeker to return five, seven, nine or more times to the same company hiring hall for senseless rounds of interviews — only to have the company whimsically decide not to fill the opening at all. From Google to Starbucks, major corporations have roughly doubled the duration of their interview process in the last two years. The New York Times noted that one fellow seeking a video-editing job was run through a gauntlet of nine interviews and made to undergo a ridiculous battery of psychological and personality exams, along with a math quiz and a spelling test — after which the company simply closed the opening. Insulting, yes, but expensive, too. The out-of-work interviewee has to pay for producing work samples and cover the cost of everything from dry cleaning to parking fees. The job-dangling corporation, on the other hand, can simply force existing employees to shoulder a heavier load, while it trifles with applicants looking for what is laughingly referred to in CorporateSpeak as “the purple squirrel” — an applicant too qualified to exist. Even a dog knows the difference between being tripped over ... and kicked. The way workaday Americans are being kicked around today is revolting — both in the sense of being abhorrent and inevitably inducing a revolt.

LETTERS A pistol capable of 6 shots in 1.7 sec. is automatic enough to me To the editor, To Dave Schwotzer, twice now you have invoked my name in you diatribe. I did not get personal in my last letter but if that’s how you want to play it, let’s go! Let’s start with the word illegal. There are many things illegal, Dave, not just people. Take and examine some gun nut out there. I’m sure he has devices and weapons that are very illegal. Regarding my error in saying that an assault weapon shot President Regan, Jim Brady, Secret Service Agent Tim McCarthy and Officer Tom Delahanity; it was a German made Rohm, 6 shot revolver capable of emptying in 1.7 seconds. That’s automatic enough for me. It’s odd to me that this slipped your mind — the portions I wrote about President Regan’s attitude towards assault weapons and Justice Scalia comments saying M16s and the like have no place in the 2nd

Amendment. They did not say that it was a rifle or pistol that makes them an assault weapon. In regards to your term “Moon Bats”, I guess it’s understandable a person like you would have a problem with hallucinations. You know, like regarding all people with your mental illness as liberals. With regards to me having long hair and a ponytail, I have to say, I wish. At 62 my hair is quite thin. In regard to your references to me being an old hippie . . . absolutely. I guess if I have to imagine you, I would see a bald-headed redneck, who’s jealous of people with a good head of hair.

Lakes Region Flag Football teaches kids to be quick, agile & elusive To the editor, Too often, when playing the sport of football or when first being introduced to the sport of football, children are placed in an environment where they learn how to hit before they learn how to play the game. The Lakes Region Flag Football League, in conjunction with NFL Flag Football, provides a structured and organized non-contact football program that focuses on the basic fundamentals of football where children can learn the game at a very fast pace and in a competitive environment without the burden of wearing pads and a helmet. We teach our players the ability and the responsibility to avoid all contact, which makes them quick, agile, and elusive. NFL Flag Football offers great fun and teamwork, and all players on offense have the opportunity to touch the ball on any given play. The Lakes Region Flag Football

League adheres to the rules set forth by NFL Flag, and can be a great introduction to football for those players who want to someday join either a full-contact league or play high school football. We know all children have a dream to belong and to be loved, and all hope for a friend. To that end we promote the 5 C’s all children need: Confidence, Convictions, Character, Compassion and Competency. We also observe the Seven Guiding Principles of NFL Youth Programs, which can be found on our website. Our league is open to all boys and girls of the Lakes Region area, from ages 4-17 for our Spring and Fall Youth League seasons.

How I remember Mr. Sargent It was with a heavy heart I received the news that Mr. Sargent, my former English teacher from Gilford High School, had died. Memory and distance can trick the brain into freezing time altogether, and this can be particularly true when it comes to teachers and friends we leave behind after high school. I hadn’t seen Mr. Sargent since my graduation decades ago, so in my head he’s still the same as he was then, flattop haircut and shortsleeved dress shirts, a different striped tie for every day of the week. Mr. Sargent didn’t look like an English teacher, he looked like a math teacher or an engineer or like an actual military sergeant — the kind who would flip a quarter onto to your bunk and give you two weeks of latrine duty just because it didn’t bounce high enough off the blanket. If you didn’t know him — and I definitely didn’t that first day of 11th grade English — you’d expect him to be exacting and severe, the kind of guy who’d cut you no slack, no matter what. It didn’t help that while the other English teachers at Gilford got to serve up “The Great Gatsby” or “Catcher in the Rye” or “Lord of the Flies” — books with enough intrigue or violence or adolescent angst to make any lesson slightly more manageable — Mr. Sargent had the trying task of teaching early American Lit. The curriculum consisted of Pilgrim journals, Puritan sermons (mainly of the fire and brimstone variety), Emerson essays, and, worst of all, Henry Thoreau’s “Walden”, a book that seemed just as torturous to a 16-year-old as calculus or SATs or a gym class first thing in the morning. And we didn’t even have a proper classroom — we were shoehorned into a tiny, windowless space in a corner of the library that probably had been storage at some point or an office where the librarian hid to catch up on reading the Life or Outdoor magazines that never seemed to remain on the racks. There were no desks, so we all just sat on the floor in a semi-circle around Mr. Sargent, who sat in one of the only available chairs, crossed his legs, balanced whichever thankless text we currently had to read, and began to teach. And we all know what happened next, right? Even Mr. Sargent would have to agree that this is one of the oldest stories in the book, whether it was part of his early American from preceding page I am personally looking forward to getting started and working with these folks to help steer Bristol towards a bright and prosperous future! If you have any questions, comments or concerns regarding budgets, taxes or services in Bristol, I

Lit curriculum or not. I know I wasn’t the only one who ended up scrawling Emerson quotes on my notebook — the most popular was “Whoso would be a man must be a nonconformist” — or the only one who grudgingly admitted Thoreau had some pretty good points. (I was probably the only one who tacked a poem on my bedroom wall by the Puritan Reverend Michael Wigglesworth, but that’s a story for another time.) Emerson and Thoreau were rebel punks and Wigglesworth was possibly the original Goth—as for the deceptively meek Emily Dickinson? She was easily the trickiest of the bunch. I’m not sure how Mr. Sargent led us to a place where we could find value in what we read, where we could somehow connect words that were centuries old to our own world of Joe Strummer and John Hughes and the all-too enticing anti-Thoreau sentiment of “Greed is Good” from Wall Street. I think his gift had something to do with his sense of humor — this wry little smile he’d get once we wore ourselves out with complaints and finally happened upon the truth that he knew was there all along — but more to do with a deep and genuine kindness. His smile didn’t mean he was laughing at us—though we sure deserved that more often than not—it was just benevolent amusement that it took us so darn long to figure everything out. And I wonder now if we were shoehorned into that tiny room in Gilford High School by design rather than lack of space. It wasn’t much smaller than Thoreau’s cabin had been, and it certainly was spare. There was just us on the floor with our notebooks and pencils, and Mr. Sargent sitting in his chair, legs crossed, book on his lap. I suppose you could say that in addition to having this frozen-intime image of Mr. Sargent from my 11th grade English class so long ago, memory and distance also have allowed me to idealize his impact on me as a writer and teacher and an ever-evolving nonconformist, but I really don’t think so. With that vintage flattop and a different striped tie for every day of the week, he was probably the first real nonconformist I ever knew; Emerson and Thoreau would be proud. I’m proud too, that I could call him my teacher. (Kate Flaherty is a teacher and writer from Gilford.) would love to hear from you. You can reach me at 603-744-8761 or email me at Together we can make Bristol the greatest town on earth! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. Carol Huber Bristol

VATICAN from page 2 pers ran the photo Friday. The Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi noted that Argentine courts had never accused Bergoglio of any crime, that he had denied all accusations against him and that on the contrary “there have been many declarations demonstrating how much Bergoglio did to protect many persons at the time.” He said the accusations against the new pope were made long ago “by anti-clerical left-wing elements to attack the church. They must be firmly rejected.” The harsh denunciation was typical of a Vatican that often reacts defensively when it feels under attack, even though its response served to give the story legs for another day. It interrupted the generally positive reception Francis has enjoyed since his election as pope on Wednesday, when even his choice of footwear — his old black shoes rather than the typical papal red — was noted as a sign of his simplicity and humility. There was one clearly unscripted moment Friday, when the 76-year-old Francis stumbled briefly during an audience with the cardinals, but he quickly recovered. And for the second day in a row, Francis slipped out of the Vatican walls, this time to visit an ailing Argentine cardinal, Jorge Mejia, who suffered a heart attack Wednesday and was in the hospital. This upbeat narrative of a people’s pope who named himself after the nature-loving St. Francis of Assisi has clashed with accusations stemming from Bergoglio’s past. The worst allegation is that as the military junta took over in 1976, he withdrew support for two Jesuit priests whose work in the slums of Buenos Aires had put them in direct contact with the leftist guerrilla movement advocating armed revolution. The priests were then kidnapped and interrogated inside a clandestine torture center at the Navy Mechanics School. Bergoglio said he had told the priests — Orlando Yorio and Francisco Jalics — to give up their slum work for their own safety, and they refused. Yorio later accused Bergoglio of effectively delivering them to the death squads by declining to publicly endorse their work. Yorio died in Uruguay in 2000. Jalics, who had maintained silence about the events, issued a statement Friday saying he spoke with Bergoglio years later and the two celebrated Mass together and hugged “solemnly.” “I am reconciled to the events and consider the matter to be closed,” he said. Bergoglio told his official biographer, Sergio Rubin, in 2010, that he had gone to extraordinary, behindthe-scenes lengths to save the men. The Jesuit leader persuaded the family priest of see next page

Lakes Region Casino looking to make a big impression at Taste of the Lakes Region BY ADAM DRAPCHO THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

BELMONT — When Shannon Corbeil was hired as the head chef of Lakes Region Casino about seven months ago, she brought with her an expanded menu and the goal of turning the facility into a dining destination as well as a gaming facility. Word has been spreading slowly, though. She still comes across people who don’t know that there’s a casino in the region, let alone one that offers a full menu of food she describes as “pub fare, plus”. In an effort to raise Lakes Region Casino’s profile in the local restaurant scene, Corbiel will be one of the more than 20 chefs representing their restaurant at the 23rd Annual Taste of the Lakes Region, held Sunday, April 7, at the Conference Center at the Opechee Inn and Spa. The Taste of the Lakes Region is the primary fund raiser for the Laconia Altrusa Club, a service organization that promotes literacy in the region and offers scholarships to local high school graduates. Tickets cost $25 and can be purchased at the Coldwell-Banker brokerage or Hector’s Fine Food & Spirits in Laconia, or at Hart’s Turkey Farm in Meredith. All proceeds will go directly to benefit the club’s charitable activities. Corbeil, though she’s only been at the Casino for less than a year, has been cooking in the Lakes Region for about two decades. She recently worked at the Weirs Beach Lobster Pound, and before that, at Nadia’s Trattoria. Participating in the event means a great deal of time and ingredient costs for Corbeil and the Casino, with no direct remuneration from the event. Corbeil’s happy to put in the effort, for a couple of reasons. “Supporting Altrusa, everything they do for the community, they do a lot. If we can help support the community, that’s always a plus,” she said. Like other restaurants, though, Lakes Region Casino is hoping to do some face-to-face marketing at the Taste, putting their food in front of diners who might not otherwise taste what they have to offer. When Corbiel came on staff at the Casino, she said, “I changed everything.” That included the menu. Prior to her arrival, the Casino offered various sandwiches, pizza and appetizer-type options. She kept some of the old favorites and added many more, mostly entrees. Diners have responded, with new items such as ribeye steaks, bourbon-marinated

She’s planning to use the event to showcase her meatballs and marinara, both made by hand and in-house. “We’re trying to ge our name out there, how we have good food. Come in to try it out.”

Talk of Granite State’s Future at regional forum in Plymouth BY MIKE MORTENSEN

PLYMOUTH – Issues which bear on future economic opportunity were uppermost on the minds of those who participated in a brainstorming session on New Hampshire’s — and the North Country’s — future. About 30 people, most from the Pemi-Baker and Newfound areas, participated in the 2 1/2-hour session at the Plymouth Regional Senior Center Thursday evening to discuss, in small groups, the challenges which they believe the region needs to face in the coming years in order for the area to remain economically vibrant and be an attractive place for people to work, live and enjoy recreational opportunities. Addressing the implications of the state’s aging population, the need for better job opportunities, the lack of public transportation, the scarcity of high-speed Internet access in many rural communities, the need to protect the state’s natural beauty were are all matters which participants said need to be explored and addressed. Many saw the issues as interconnected and acknowledged the possible solutions as complex. Thursday’s event was one of 12 listening sessions taking place across the state to gather public comment which will be used to prepare both regional and statewide plans which address transportation, land use, economic development, housing, cultural and historic resources, health care and environmental protection. The effort is organized under the name Granite State Future. The other such gathering in central New Hampshire is scheduled for Tuesday, May 7, at the Laconia Middle School. The listening sessions are being conducted as part of a threeyear project to address regional planning issues. The endeavor is being underwritten by a $3.37 million federal grant with all nine of the state’s nine regional planning commissions participating. John Krebs, principal planner with the North Country Council, told participants to share “what is most important to you — how you want to see the future of where you live.” Addressing one economic piece is not enough, participants said. It’s hard to attract new businesses to an area if there is insufficient affordable housing in the area to accommodate the workers which those businesses need to employ. And the lack of public transportation often frequently poses additional difficulties for lowestincome families which spend in excess

of 30 percent of their income on transportation, according to a 2008 survey conducted by the Southwest Regional Planning Commission. The only alternative to private vehicles for those living in the 19 communities which comprise the Pemi-Baker region is one part-time taxi, according to Patsy Kendall, executive director of Transport Central, a non-profit created to develop and deliver transportation service for people who live in the communities around Plymouth. “We need to think of moving people around in these small communities,” said Kendall. Other issues which were raised during the session included the need to protect private property rights, and protecting the state’s natural beauty which some believed will be irreparably damaged by current and proposed wind farms on mountain ridges, as well as the Northern Pass electrical transmission line that would run from Canadian border to Franklin. Differences between challenges facing communities in the state’s southern tier and the rest of the state were noted. One participant noted that although the population of the Plymouth area was nowhere as diverse in the more urban communities the demographics of the more rural areas could well also change and those communities needed to plan for that contingency. Scott Stephens, a Campton resident who runs the Colonel Spencer Inn bed and breakfast, said that in Manchester, students attending the city’s public schools speak 71 different languages and he said that area communities should to be proactive in preparing for a more diverse population. “If we’re thinking 15 to 20 years out that’s going to be more of an issue,” he said. A stronger economic base was also seen as critical to giving young people and incentive to stay in the area once they finish their education. Joyce Palmer, an official of Granite United Way who is also on the staff of the Whole Village Family Resource Center in Plymouth Center, said as communities plan for the future they need to see how the issues can be integrated into an overall plan rather than being viewed as competing interests. “Being concerned about older citizens should not be seen as a threat to initiative to improve early childhood education,” she said. Participants said the listening session was one step in an ongoing process. “It would be said if this planning process ended with this conversation,” said Palmer.

Lombardi said the airing of the accusations following Francis’ election was “characterized by a campaign that’s often slanderous and defamatory.” Earlier this week, Lombardi issued a similar denunciation of an advocacy

group for victims of sexual abuse, accusing it of using the media spotlight on the conclave to try to publicize old accusations against cardinals. The accusations, Lombardi said, are baseless and the cardinals deserve everyone’s “esteem.” The accusations against Bergoglio were fanned by Horacio Verbitzky, an investigative journalist who was a leftist militant in the 1970s and is now closely aligned with the government.

LACONIA — A Belknap County Superior Court judge has denied country singer Eric Grant’s request that his attorney be allowed to individually question prospective jurors at his upcoming trial for aggravated felonious sexual assault. Grant’s attorney, Emily McLaughlin, has said that the “touchstone of a fair trial is an impartial trier of fact” and that the allegation made against him of sexual assault on a minor is such that potential jurors “will have strong biases and prejudices” against her client. McLaughlin said potential jurors may also have prejudices and biases about believing a child — now a teenager — who alleges sexual assault, a counselor, and police officers who are the only prosecution witnesses. She said her ability to individually question potential jurors about those biases will help ensure her client gets a fair trial. Grant was indicted late last year for one count of digitally penetrating a female on December 31, 2006 who was under 13 at the time of the alleged assault.

An indictment is not an indication of guilt or innocence. It is a statement by an independent grand jury that enough evidence exists to warrant a trial. Grant is the lead singer and namesake of the Eric Grant Band, a wellknown local band that has developed a regional if not national reputation. Speaking through his lawyer, Grant has proclaimed his innocence and said he will fight the charges. Other that the above media statement, he has declined to speak publicly about the charges. In his ruling against Grant, Judge James O’Neill said in N.H. Superior Court, voir dire — or the questioning of potential jurors is done according to the trial judge’s desire — unless it is a case that involves the jury knowing that the accused could be sentenced to death or life in prison. He ruled that neither death nor life imprisonment are possible penalties in Grant’s case and he would ask potential jurors any questions regarding their ability to be impartial triers of fact. O’Neill said he would consider any questions either McLaughlin or the Belknap County Attorney Office has during his questioning of the jurors as he deems appropriate.

DYING from page one ment and recreation” county, where, unlike counties characterized by agriculture or extractive industries, population has grown. However, Johnson said that the pace of pace of inmigration has slowed during the last decade, especially since the onset of the Great Recession. The natural decrease in the population, Johnson explained, is the result of both the declining number of births and falling fertility rate, or average number of children born to a woman during her lifetime. At the same time, the aging of the population is reflected in the growing number of deaths, which last year reached 2,513,000 in the United States, the most in any year. Between 2000 and 2010, while the population of the county rose by 6.5-percent the age group younger than 18 fell nearly as fast, 6.3-percent, to diminish from almost a quarter to barely a fifth of the population. Meanwhile, the median age increased from 40.1 to 44.7. The New Hampshire Center for Public Policy Studies projects that those

over 65 will represent 37-percent of the Belknap County population by 2030, the second largest share of senior citizens among the 10 counties. Johnson suggested demographic trends in Belknap County may be mitigated by its relative proximity to Concord and Manchester, noting that rural counties near more metropolitan centers have more robust population growth. Likewise, he said that Belknap County would continue to draw migrants while cautioning that a significant share of them would be beyond their child bearing years, who would accelerate the aging of the county population. For instance, Johnson said that one survey indicated that half of second homeowners plan to retire to their second home. In 2010, seasonal homes represented 28-percent of the housing stock in Belknap County. Russ Thibeault of Applied Economic Research expects that many of these seasonal homes will become year-round residences when their owners retire.

HUOT from page one is a retired district judge serving his second term in the Legislature. Democrats hold five and Republicans 13 of the 18 seats on the convention. Laconia residents Tom Tardif and Dave Gammon charged that the election of Representatives Colette Worsman (R-Meredith) as chairman and Bob Greemore (R-Meredith) as vice- chairman by secret paper ballot violated the Right-the-Know law. They insist that there is no basis in New Hampshire law for conducting any secret ballot vote during a meeting of a public board and that, in fact, RSA 91-A, specially prohibits such a practice. Convention members claimed they were following the advice of the clerk

of the New Hampshire House of Representatives, who cited a decades old Supreme Court advisory opinion that allowed the House to elect its speaker by secret ballot. On December 10, Worsman defeated fellow Republican Frank Tilton of Laconia by a vote of 9-7, but how the individual members of the convention voted was not disclosed. Tilton has since been a staunch supporter of Worsman’s leadership. On February 19, the convention voted 11 to 2 with four abstentions and one member absent to “reaffirm” the election of officers on December 10, 2012. Apparently this action was taken on the advice of County Attorsee next page

Abortion & minimum wage votes divide Belkap Co. delegation along party lines CONCORD — The 18 state representatives from Belknap County divided along strict party lines on two controversial bills before the House of Representatives last week. House Bill 483, sponsored by Representative Jane Cormier (R-Alton) would have required a 24-hour waiting period during which women seeking an abortion would be provided with information before granting their informed consent to the procedure. The Senate scuttled a nearly identical bill a year ago. The House Judiciary Committee recommended against the bill by a vote of 13 to 6 and after 30 minutes of debate the House followed suit by a vote of 229 to 121 as 35 Republicans joined the majority and 24 Democrats joined the minority. Four of the five Democrats among the county delegation — Lisa DiMartino of Gilford, Ruth Gulick of New Hampton, David Huot of Laconia and Ian Raymond of Sanbornton — voted against the bill while the fifth, Beth Arsenault of Laconia did not vote. Eleven of the 15 Republicans voted for the bill — Richard Burchell of Gilmanton, Guy Comtois of Barnstead, Cormier and Stephen Holmes

of Alton, Dennis Fields of Sanbornton, Chuck Fink of Belmont, Don Flanders and Frank Tilton of Laconia, Bob Greemore, and Herb Vadney and Colette Worsman of Meredith. Bob Luther of Laconia and Michael Sylvia of Belmont did not vote. The representatives also split over House Bill 501 restored the state minimum wage, which was originally introduced in 1949 but repealed in 2011, leaving New Hampshire the only northern state without a minimum wage and subject to the federal minimum wage by default. Originally the bill set the minimum wage at $8.25 per hour, a dollar above the current federal standard, but it was amended to match the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. The bill carried the House by a vote of 200 to 133. Again four of the five Democrats — DiMartino, Gulick, Huot and Raymond — voted with the majority while Arsenault was absent. Ten of the 13 Republicans — Burchell, Fields, Fink, Flanders, Greemore, Holmes, Sylvia, Tilton, Vadney and Worsman — voted against the bill while Comtois, Cormier and Luther did not vote. — Michael Kitch

Truck stolen in Chichester found in Belmont

BELMONT — Police recovered a vehicle yesterday off Marsh Hill Road that had been reported stolen by Chichester Police in December. Crp. Steve Akerstrom said the property manager of an apartment building notified police yesterday that a truck has been parked near the property for a while and appeared abandoned.

He said when a Belmont officer went to the site, he found a pick up that was on jacks with its rear tires missing. He said the officer ran the vehicle identification number and determined it had been reported stolen from Chichester. He said the truck was turned over to Chichester Police who continue to investigate the theft.

from preceding page ney Melissa Gulbrandsen, who after consulting with Worsman after the suit was filed on February 8, drafted the motion to reaffirm the vote. Subsequently, the convention, over the objections of the Belknap County Commission, authorized Worsman to retain Laura-Spector Morgan of the Mitchell Municipal Group to represent the convention in the suit. Earlier this week, when Worsman scheduled the meeting of the convention to hold a fresh election, she acknowledged that she did so on the advice of counsel, but declined to name the attorney. Meanwhile, Matt Huot, Repre-

sentative Huot’s son who chairs the Belknap County Democratic Committee, has called on Worsman to disclose the rules of procedure under which the convention conducts its business. He said that “these meetings are not governed by any clear set of rules,” charged that Worsman “is simply making things up on the fly,” and described the meetings as “unstructured and unproductive.” In fact, at one meeting County Commissioner Ed Philpot pointedly asked Worsman what rules the convention was following and was told it had not adopted rules. — Michael Kitch

ABORTION from page one Grande, a Republican from Fargo who introduced both bills. The state’s only abortion clinic is in Fargo, and abortion-rights advocates say the measures are meant to shut it down. Gov. Jack Dalrymple hasn’t said anything to indicate he would veto the measures, and the bills have enough support in each chamber for the Legislature to override him. Debate Friday was brief, with the Senate taking about an hour to pass both measures. No one spoke against the so-called fetal heartbeat bill, which the Senate took up immediately after passing the genetic abnormalities bill. The votes were largely on party lines,

with Republicans supporting the measures and Democrats opposing them. Opponents, who have promised legal challenges to both measures if they become law, urged Dalrymple to veto the bills. North Dakota is one of several states with Republican-controlled Legislatures and GOP governors that is looking at abortion restrictions. But the state is better positioned than most for a long court fight: It has budget surplus nearing $2 billion thanks to new-found oil wealth. The American Civil Liberties Union called the measures “extreme,” saying they would make North Dakota “the first state in the nation to ban most abortions.”

States wrestle with unregulated ‘gambling’ rooms ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The charity-run businesses under investigation in a Florida gambling probe started popping up in strip malls about six years ago and rapidly spread as the unregulated stores became a billion-dollar enterprise. One of the industry’s biggest players was toppled this week when about 50 people were arrested in a handful of states, many of them charged with racketeering and conspiracy, authorities said. They were all linked to Allied Veterans of the World, a veterans charity accused of masking a $300 million illegal gambling ring. Allied Veterans had about 50 locations, but by some estimates there are 1,000 such storefronts across Florida. These so-called Internet cafes, which authorities said are actually small casinos with slot machine-style games, have mushroomed in Ohio, South Carolina, North Carolina and elsewhere. “I’m thoroughly convinced they are illegal in every state in the union,” said David Stewart, a Washington lawyer who works for the casino industry’s main lobbying group, the American Gaming Association. He compared the parlors to kudzu, a fast-growing invasive vine. “They grow when people aren’t paying attention.” The scandal brought down Florida’s lieutenant governor, who was questioned in the probe but not charged. Authorities said charity leaders spent very little on veterans and lavished millions on them-

selves, buying boats, beachfront condos and Maseratis, Ferraris and Porsches. Authorities said they were also looking into campaign donations and lobbyists. An Associated Press review of the key players behind the charity showed they pumped more than $1 million into the campaign accounts of Florida politicians who had the power to regulate or put them out of business. The businesses in Florida and elsewhere often operate in a gray area. The game makers argue they are legal sweepstakes because there’s a predetermined number of winners, similar to a McDonald’s Monopoly game or Coca-Cola’s cap contest. The alleged ringleader, the charity’s attorney Kelly Mathis, wrote opinion pieces and argued before local governments the games were legal. To label these businesses as strip mall casinos “is an unfair and inaccurate characterization of these businesses,” Mathis wrote to in 2011. He said many customers don’t have Internet at home and pay bills, prepare resumes and check email there. “The sweepstakes simply is a marketing tool used to promote the Internet time and telephone time purchased at these cafes, the same type of sweepstakes offered at many checkout counters of large retailers who ask you to go online to complete a survey and the chance to win thousands in gift cards for that retailer,” he wrote.

DRUGS from page one one of the men, hand him something hand and have a short conversation with him. The deputy spoke to the two men who said they had asked Marquis if he had an cigarettes and he had told them no. They said he had gone into the Spa to buy some. Marquis exited the Spa and began walking down Church Street. The deputy met him at the corner of River Street and the two exchanged pleasantries. Marquis told the deputy he didn’t have any drugs on him, only a glass pipe that he had bought for smoking tobacco. The deputy noted that he had

never seen a glass pipe used for tobacco and asked Marquis if he could search him. He said Marquis assented and as the deputy began the search, he said Marquis admitted to having a small amount of marijuana in a pill bottle. He told the deputy he had two cigarette packs in his pocket. The deputy determined Marquis had 17-1/2 30 milligram pills of oxycodone in one bag and one-half a Xanax pill and three Adderall in another. BCSC Deputy Judy Estes and Public Defender Kate Geraci agreed on $500 cash bail and Gordon set personal recognizance bail for $2,000 on his own.

‘North Shore’ restaurant builds a loyal following in Laconia in just 1 year Greeserving nside RESTAURANT great quality food By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Dave Henrick and his partner Yvette Imhof wanted to leave Peabody, Mass. and relocate to the Lakes Region, where they had been seasonal visitors for decades. They couldn’t do it, though, without bringing some of their favorite North Shore flavors with them. Lakeside Famous Roast Beef, located at 1091 Union Avenue, opened a year ago. Henrick and Imhof have found that there’s plenty of love in Laconia for North Shore favorites. “I’ve been coming to this area for over 40 years, this is always a place I wanted to be,” said Henrick. A retired insurance industry executive, Henrick has traveled the world and indulged his love of good food

wherever he’s gone. Transitioning from that career to one of a restaurateur, however, it was the food he was most familiar with that he chose to feature at his first restaurant. “Everybody goes back to their roots,” he said. The menu at Lakeside features pizza and calzones, salads, sandwiches and subs, and pasta dishes. There’s little on the menu that’s unique among other eateries on Union Ave., especially in the vicinity of Lakeside. Yet Lakeside has been able to set itself apart, said Henrick. “It’s the same type of food but it’s prepared differently.” At Lakeside, the marinara sauce is made in-house. So is the Alfredo sauce, roast beef and chicken fingers. Steak tips are marinated in-house. Onion see next page

from preceding page are cut, breaded and fried under Henrick’s or Imhof’s watch. All their seafood is fresh, not frozen. They make their own clam chowder, which became a customer favorite this winter. All of those products, and others that Lakeside staff make in-house, could be more easily purchased prepared and frozen. For Henrick, though, “it makes a difference” to prepare the items to meet his and Imhof’s standards. Patrons seem to have agreed, as business at Lakeside has continued to grow, even through the winter. When planning the restaurant, Henrick said his strategy was to serve the local, year-round residents instead of trying to attract the business of here-today gone-tomorrow vacationers. Critical to that strategy was to set prices at levels that locals could afford several times a week. Indeed, there are no sandwiches or subs that cost more than $8, there are even a couple that cost less than $5. Whether it’s insurance or subs, Henrick said, success in business can be found by following three principles: “You have to have a good product, reasonably priced, and you have to make a connection with the customers.” Henrick’s serious about that last

one, too. He prides himself on being present at the business seven days a week, often greeting every customer with a smile. He’ll take an order on the phone, cook the food himself and even make the delivery. For his business, he said, success is determined not by whether he can get a patron to try his place but whether they’ll come back, and whether they’ll naturally think of Lakeside when they get hungry. “You’ve got to work hard to get a customer, you have to work twice as hard to keep a customer,” he said. It’s been a lot of work to keep so many customers coming back. But when he gets a phone call from someone who can’t remember when they’ve had a better sandwich, he says it’s all been worth the effort. “Those compliments go a long way.” His best compliment yet came in the form of a delivery order to Lakes Region General Hospital. It’s not unusual for his restaurant to deliver to employees there, so he didn’t think much of the order until nurses at the maternity ward told him his customer was waiting in one of the delivery rooms. An expectant mother decided that the meal she wanted on the day of her child’s birth was a meatball sub (with hot pepper relish and red

His favorite part of owning a restaurant, though, is the opportunity to be charitable in his new home community. “You have to have balance,” he said, “The most rewarding thing is the

back part, the giving back.” After a year in business, Henrick said he’s glad he decided to bring the flavors of his home town to his new home, and that he looks forward to earning more repeat customers. “I would really like to thank the people of the Lakes Region, thank you very much for your support.”

STOCKS from page 2 Market Advisors. “It’s real and it’s a drag, and I think people are growing concerned that it can get out of control quickly,” Tchir said. He said signs of economic improvement and inflation “make them wonder if there will be continued market pressure on the Fed” to end its bond-buying programs. The market’s recent rally to multiyear highs was fueled in part by the Fed’s efforts to keep interest rates low and encourage investment. The Dow’s win streak matched a 10-day run that ended on Nov. 15, 1996. To find a longer uninterrupted series of gains, you would have to go back to Jan. 3, 1992, when the Dow rose for 11 consecutive days. The index’s longest winning streak was 14 days, ending June 14, 1897. Stocks opened lower and extended their losses at 10 a.m. after a closelywatched index of consumer sentiment fell to its lowest level since the

end of 2011. The University of Michigan’s preliminary consumer sentiment index dropped 5.8 points to 71.8, according JPMorgan analyst Daniel Silver said in a note to clients. Stocks reversed the losses briefly at midday, then drifted back down in the afternoon. Traders are processing big banks’ scores on “stress tests” administered by the Fed. The Fed said late Thursday that JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs both need better plans to cope with a severe recession. It gave them until September to revise their plans. Still, the Fed allowed both banks to increase their dividends and buy back their stock, signaling that regulators believe the banks are fundamentally sound. The stock of JPMorgan fell 98 cents, or 1.9 percent, to $50.02. Goldman’s stock rose 82 cents, or 0.5 percent, to $154.84. The S&P 500 closed just five points from its all-time closing high of 1,565, reached in October 2007.

Maryland lawmakers vote to repeal death penalty ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland lawmakers approved a measure abolishing the death penalty on Friday and sent the bill to Gov. Martin O’Malley, who has long supported banning capital punishment. The House of Delegates voted 82-56 for legislation already approved by the Senate. Eighty Democrats and two Republicans voted for the bill, which needed 71 votes to pass. Eighteen Democrats joined 38 Republicans to vote against it. The vote represented a major victory for the Democratic governor, who has pushed for five years for the death penalty’s repeal. He is widely believed to be weighing a presidential bid in 2016. “We have a moral responsibility to stop doing the things that are wasteful and do not work and, that I would argue, run contrary to the deeper principles that unite us as Marylanders,” O’Malley said, flanked by a group of death penalty opponents, including NAACP President Benjamin Jealous. Under the bill, life without the possibility of parole would be the most severe sentence in the state.

Supporters of repeal argued the death penalty is costly, racially biased, a poor deterrent of crime and sometimes wrongfully applied. The possibility of executing the innocent prompted many lawmakers to support the measure. “I can live with putting to death criminals who committed what are truly grievous and wicked acts against our children, our police, our mothers and our daughters,” Delegate Luiz Simmons, D-Montgomery, said on the House floor, “but what I am opposed to, and what I can no longer live with, is using the death penalty to accidently put to death an innocent man or woman.” Opponents insisted capital punishment was a necessary tool in punishing those who commit the most egregious crimes. “This bill is wrong-spirited,” said Delegate Michael McDermott, an Eastern Shore Republican. “It’s a shame that we will not allow future generations to have the option of putting the absolute worst of the worst to death.”

Whaleback Mountain deep in debt; Enfield ski area will likely close ENFIELD (AP) — Whaleback Mountain ski area in Enfield, N.H., is likely to close under the weight of more than $1 million in outstanding debt. Co-owner and two-time Olympic skier Evan Dybvig says he plans to sell assets to pay outstanding taxes. The Valley News ( ) reports that Whaleback Mountain LLC owes $73,000 to the town of Enfield dating back to May

2011, according to town records. Dybvig said his lender is prepared to foreclose on the property. “We have tried numerous avenues to recapitalize the business to put ourselves on surer footing without success. Our only option at this point is to close,” a letter posted by Dybvig and co-owners Frank Sparrow and Dylan Goodspeed says on Whalebacks’ website.

3 teens granted immunity to testify in Ohio rape trial that’s been tied to football culture

STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (AP) — A judge granted three teenagers immunity from prosecution Friday before they agreed to testify about the alleged sexual assault of a drunken 16-year-old girl after a party in eastern Ohio last summer. Mark Cole, Evan Westlake and Anthony Craig invoked their Fifth Amendment right against testifying for fear of self-incrimination as the trial in Steubenville entered its third day. Testimony from the three is a crucial part of the state’s evidence because the West Virginia girl says she doesn’t remember what happened. Trent Mays, 17, and Ma’Lik Richmond, 16, are charged with digitally penetrating the girl early in the morning of Aug. 12, first in a car and then in the basement of a house. Mays also is charged with illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material. The two maintain their innocence. Cole testified Friday that he took a video of Mays and the girl in the car, then deleted it. Westlake testified he saw Richmond’s encounter with the girl in the basement. The third boy, who has yet to testify, said at a hearing last fall that he took a photo of the alleged basement attack that he also deleted.

And we play really, really well together. That increasing level of maturity really shows up on Uncaged.”

Waterville Valley Hall of Fame honors second class of inductees on April 6 WATERVILLE VALLEY — Continuing a proud tradition of recognizing people or groups that have made Waterville Valley Resort the very special place it is, the 2nd annual Hall of Fame induction awards ceremony and dinner will take place on April 6 at the Waterville Valley Conference Center. The program is open to the public. Reservations are required. The 2013 “class” of inductees includes honorees that have had a significant and long term impact on the legacy of Waterville Valley. The list includes Ralph and Grace Bean, the owners of Waterville Valley Resort before the Tom Corcoran era; Jack and Marci Williams, who for the last 27 years hosted the Jack Williams Race for Wednesday’s Child; Franz Dubach, long time owner of the William Tell Restaurant who continues to volunteer his expertise for charity events; and Volvo of New England, a company that has sponsored and supported Waterville Valley Resort for over 20 years. Jack and Marci, Franz, and Frank Gaffney, representing Volvo of New England will all be present to accept their awards. The Beans who were such a rich part of the fabric of the valley, have unfortunately passed away but will be with us in spirit. Tom Gross Jr., President of Valley Operations for the resort said, “We are particularly excited this year to welcome Jack and Marci Williams

who have hosted possibly one of the longest running ski charity events anywhere in support of such a great cause – special needs adoptions,” He added, “Having Volvo as an inductee in the same year is really fitting as Volvo has been a huge supporter of Jack and Marci’s race”. Franz Dubach is a legend in the area. His culinary presentations at the William Tell are still talked about long after he has sold the business. He is often asked to be guest chef and local charity fundraisers. Ralph and Grace Bean were rock solid citizens of Waterville Valley. Grace was a selectperson for many years and author of the book “The Town at the End of the Road”. Ralph continued on Tom Corcoran’s Waterville Company Board of Directors for many years after selling the resort to Tom. Tickets for the dinner are $75 per person, or $800 for a reserved table of ten. Space may be limited. For reservations call Therese at 603-236-8311. A reception at 6 p.m. will be followed by dinner at 7 p.m. Presentations will take place at the end of the dinner. The Waterville Valley Hall of Fame Committee received and reviewed more than 70 nominations and chose these deserving recipients for the 2nd annual award ceremony. Those individuals nominated, but not chosen this year, may still be inaugurated in years to come.

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis people want to change another person instead of improving their own scene. You know better. Your efforts are best invested in self-development, and you’ll take great joy in the process now. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Share your talent. Because you have a wonderful eye and a gift for creative interpretation, you make people pay attention to the glorious details all around us. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). If you finish one short assignment today, it may be enough to make your whole weekend feel productive -- provided the assignment is something you really wanted to do. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll have fun and let your social guard down, too, but don’t let it fall too far. Open books look like a mess, and they don’t fit neatly anywhere, either. Stay a little mysterious. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You have a healthy respect for yourself, but you don’t often preen for hours in the mirror like a model getting ready for a magazine shoot. Today may be the exception, as you’ll be in just the mood to get playful with your image. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 16). The next six weeks bring new partnerships, alliances and joint ventures. April is a pleasurable break from routine. May increases your determination. The progress of a project may be delayed in June, and this works in your favor. Lucrative bonuses come in April and July. A new relationship bond is formed in August. Taurus and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 39, 14, 32, 14 and 2.


ARIES (March 21-April 19). Some of your psychic wounds, though they may not go deep, are still fresh enough to be tender to the touch. The one who is compelled to “touch” will help you discover this. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The best dancers don’t look at their feet to make sure they are doing it right. They just dance. Someone is likely to be capturing your performance on video or in memory, and you can always analyze later. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You respect the privacy of others, but you’re still very curious about what goes on when you’re not there. Intimacy is created in a delicate balance between respect and curiosity. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You have the kind of friend who shows you what community and friendship really mean. That’s a person to celebrate and cherish when you get the chance this weekend. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You want “next level” access in this video game of life, and yet, like any game, you won’t get there until you’ve taken the steps to gain the keys. Even the cheats can only help you if you’re in the game. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You approach many aspects of life as an art, including love. Self-doubt is a normal part of artistic development that you may be experiencing, but keep going, and you’ll regain your confidence. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Certain loved ones have earned your trust and plenty of freedom, which you gladly give. Be sure to stay involved, though. Your care and support are still needed. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Often,

Yesterday’s Answer

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, March 16, 2013— Page 19

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Saturday, March 16, the 75th day of 2013. There are 290 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On March 16, 1968, during the Vietnam War, the My Lai (mee ly) Massacre of Vietnamese civilians was carried out by U.S. Army troops; estimates of the death toll vary between 347 and 504. On this date: In A.D. 37, Roman emperor Tiberius died; he was succeeded by Caligula. In 1521, Portuguese navigator Ferdinand Magellan reached the Philippines, where he was killed by natives the following month. In 1751, James Madison, fourth president of the United States, was born in Port Conway, Va. In 1802, President Thomas Jefferson signed a measure authorizing the establishment of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y. In 1850, Nathaniel Hawthorne’s novel “The Scarlet Letter” was first published. In 1912, future first lady Pat Nixon was born Thelma Catherine Ryan in Ely, Nev. In 1926, rocket science pioneer Robert H. Goddard successfully tested the first liquid-fueled rocket, in Auburn, Mass. In 1935, Adolf Hitler decided to break the military terms set by the Treaty of Versailles (vehrSY’) by ordering the rearming of Germany. In 1945, during World War II, American forces declared they had secured Iwo Jima, although pockets of Japanese resistance remained. In 1972, in a nationally broadcast address, President Richard M. Nixon called for a moratorium on court-ordered school busing to achieve racial desegregation. In 1983, radio and television star Arthur Godfrey died in New York at age 79. In 1988, Protestant extremist Michael Stone launched a one-man gun-and-grenade attack on an Irish Republican Army funeral at Milltown Cemetery in Belfast, Northern Ireland, killing three of the mourners. One year ago: A jury in New Brunswick, N.J., convicted former Rutgers University student Dharun Ravi in the webcam spying episode that ended in the suicide of his gay roommate, Tyler Clementi. (Ravi served less than a month in jail for invasion of privacy, bias intimidation and other counts; he’s appealing his conviction.) Actor George Clooney and his father, Nick Clooney, were arrested during a protest outside the Sudanese Embassy in Washington. Today’s Birthdays: Comedian-director Jerry Lewis is 87. Country singer Ray Walker (The Jordanaires) is 79. Movie director Bernardo Bertolucci is 72. Game show host Chuck Woolery is 72. Singer-songwriter Jerry Jeff Walker is 71. Country singer Robin Williams is 66. Actor Erik Estrada is 64. Actor Victor Garber is 64. Actress Kate Nelligan is 62. Country singer Ray Benson (Asleep at the Wheel) is 62. Rock singer-musician Nancy Wilson (Heart) is 59. Golfer Hollis Stacy is 59. Actress Isabelle Huppert is 58. Actor Clifton Powell is 57. Rock musician Jimmy DeGrasso is 50. Folk singer Patty Griffin is 49. Country singer Tracy Bonham is 46. Actress Lauren Graham is 46. Actor Judah Friedlander is 44. Actor Alan Tudyk is 42. Actor Tim Kang is 40. Rhythm-andblues singer Blu Cantrell is 37. Actress Brooke Burns is 35. Rock musician Wolfgang Van Halen is 22.

Page 20 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, March 16, 2013


Dear Annie: I desperately need your help. I thoroughly love my solitude. I love to garden, cook, sew and read. I grill every few weeks and make it a fantastic outdoor experience just for me. I could hardly wait to retire so I could finally enjoy myself completely. Unfortunately, it didn’t turn out that way. Between my neighbors, relatives and even former in-laws, my time is no longer my own. I am interrupted while doing yard work or sitting on my deck. And heaven forbid I begin to grill. One person has figured out how often I grill and tends to arrive at that time and finagle an invitation. When I make an excuse to prevent the intrusion, he turns it into a guilt trip. I am at the end of my rope. I no longer look forward to good weather, because I know it means another season being bothered by intrusive people. How do I stop this without turning everyone into an enemy? -- Want My Solitude Back Dear Want: These people are taking advantage of you, and you are permitting it because you fear they will dislike you otherwise. Don’t be afraid to set boundaries on this behavior. It’s perfectly OK to say you are not up to having company, that you would prefer to be alone, that you don’t have enough food to invite them for dinner or that you cannot entertain at the moment. You don’t have to give excuses or reasons. It is your home. Escort them to the door while repeating that you are so sorry you cannot accommodate them. If you do it enough, they will understand that you are not the local coffee shop, and they will be more respectful of your time. Dear Annie: I was dating this amazing girl for a few months, when all of a sudden, she up and told me her feel-

ings toward me had changed. She won’t tell me what happened or why she doesn’t want me in that way anymore. The most confusing part is that she still calls me at 3 in the morning just to talk, or gets me to stay up all night because she can’t sleep and doesn’t want to be alone. When I see her, she still has that look on her face that says I just made her day. It’s very confusing, and I don’t know what to make of it. I still have feelings for her. It’s been a few months, and I don’t know how to broach the subject. -- Dazed and Confused Dear Dazed: For your own mental health, please break things off completely. We don’t doubt that this girl is fond of you, but not in a way that will make you happy. She is treating you like a puppy: something to cuddle when she’s feeling low, but otherwise left in the kennel. Tell her you are finished taking on the role of platonic confidante, and stop answering her late-night calls. You cannot get over her if you remain involved in the hope that she will change her mind. You can do better. Dear Annie: “Animal Lover” makes a valid point that no one wants an animal to soil their carpets. I have a solution. Please tell your readers that there are doggie diapers (for females) and belly bands (for males) that can be found at pet shops and on the Internet. My elderly boy wears his belly band daily because his medication causes frequent urination. These options should make it easier for hosts to welcome their canine guests. It also provides pet owners options for their own homes. There is no reason to give up your elderly or medicated canine or to suffer unnecessarily. That’s when our furry children need us the most. -- Please Share

Gordon Nash Library news

NEW HAMPTON — The Gordon Nash Library hosted a Zentangle class which was such a great success that another class will be held at the library on March 30. Participants learn to make beautiful images using structured patterns with pen on paper. The workshop is $35 plus a $10 materials fee. There are free materials for Friends of the Gordon-Nash Library so participants can save $10 by joining the Friends of the Library. On March 20th at noon B.B.B.G.

There are always interesting refreshments provided by the book group discussion leader, Diane Bacon. That very evening, March 20 at 6 p.m. the Gordon-Nash Movie Night will be showing, “Lovely, Still” starring Academy Award Winners, Martin Landau and Ellen Burstyn. What begins as an odd and awkward encounter quickly blossoms into what appears to be a romantic late life love affair that takes us on a heartfelt and wonderful journey which takes an unexpected turn. Skillfully and sensitively directed by Nik Fackler, the film also stars Elizabeth Banks and Adam Scott, and features original music by Conor Oberst and a score by Nate Walcott and Mike Mogis of Bright Eyes There is a $5 suggested donation. Popcorn is free. The very next day, March 21, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. N.H. Historical Society Presents: Family Stories: and why telling them matters, with Humanities Scholar and Storyteller, Jo Radner.

Lakes Region Real Estate Market Report / Roy Sanborn

Waterfront sales report There were three sales in February on Lake Winnipesaukee at an average of $1.26 million. That’s down from last February when we had seven sales that were all below the million dollar mark resulting in an average price of just $606,429. While the total number of sales are down this year so far, at least a few high dollar properties are moving. The largest sale in February is a brand spanking new Scott Fuller Development home at 34 Boathouse Road in Moultonborough. This 5,500-square-foot, high quality contemporary has all the features expected in a grand lake home on Winnipesaukee including a great room with soaring cathedral ceilings, massive stone fireplace, and a wall of windows facing the lake that opens out to a massive lakefront deck. There’s a first floor master suite with a fireplace and private deck and a gourmet kitchen that is open to the great room and dining areas. Upstairs are three quest suites, a media, bonus room, and loft area from which you can view the stunning great room below. The walk out lower level has a large family room with a fireplace, billiard room, and home theater (of course!) This home sits on a private .89 acre lot with 180feet of frontage, a sugar sand beach, and sunset views. The exterior is finished in cedar shingles and clapboards with a natural stain for that Adriondack feel. Sounds pretty spectacular to me! This home was listed at $2.5 million and sold for $2.35

million. At the other end of the spectrum, the least expensive sale on the lake was at 40 Governor Wentworth Highway in Tuftonboro. This property consists of a 1960’s vintage, year round 2/3 bedroom home and a Victorian era three bedroom guest cottage on a half acre lot with 91-feet of frontage on Winter Harbor. The main house has basic amenities including an eat in kitchen living room, den, one full bath, two beds down and a large room on the second floor for sleeping a herd of kids and will probably make way for a new waterfront home. The guest cottage looks more interesting with its wrap-around porch and would be a neat structure to keep as it is also located steps to the lake. This property was originally listed at $795,000, was reduced to $635,000, and sold for $585,000 after 469 days on the market. The current assessment is listed at $782,700 so whether the new owner is going to build new or use as is, I bet he is delighted with his purchase. There were no sales in the month of February on Winnisquam or Squam! Ouch! If you are a property owner on a lake I would highly encourage you to visit the Lake Winnipesaukee Watershed Association’s website at www. . This non-profit organization is dedicated to protecting and preserving the water quality in the Lake Winnipesaukee watershed

area. Its ongoing activities include coordination and assistance to the UNH Lakes Lay Monitoring Program on Lake Winnipesaukee, educational outreach and awareness programs, assistance to communities in milfoil prevention activities, and development of the Lake Winnipesaukee Watershed Management Plan. There is a wealth of information here about how to do your part in keeping our lake pristine and they also post their newsletters on line that you will find extremely informative. Lake monitoring data can be found on www. along with recreation information, watershed maps, and info about the watershed management plans. These are two great sites that everyone who loves Winnipesaukee should visit! As of this writing there were 176 homes for sale on Lake Winnipesaukee with 73 of those below the million dollar mark! You can get onto lake with an island property generally starting in the $200-400,000 range. There is a camp available right now on Bear Island for $169,900. I’m not saying it’s great, but it is a buy at $100,000 below assessed value! There are 16 homes available on Winnisquam starting just under $300,000 and many, many homes on smaller lakes in the are starting perhaps for a little less. So, if you want your piece of waterfront heaven in the Lake Region this would be a great time of year to start your search. Please feel free to visit www.lakesregionhome. com to learn more about the Lakes Region real estate market and comment on this article and others.
