BARNSTEAD — Voters decided by a nearly two-toone margin against turning over their town’s policing duties to the Belknap County Sheriff’s Department. Two-hundred and twenty-one people cast their ballots at the annual town meeting held Saturday morning at the Barnstead Elementary School after about one hour of floor discussion. Only 77 voters supported the change, while 144 voted to keep things the way they are. Despite the three public hearings held previously regarding the proposed arrangement with the sheriff, people at Saturday’s meeting still had plenty of questions. Sheriff Craig Wiggin was there to answer the questions, as was Chief Kenneth Borgia. Wiggin gave a brief presentation to the voters about what entering into a contract would mean and how the voters came to be deciding what will be the future of Barnstead’s policing. “It’s been a couple of years now,” Wiggin said. “The town came to the county and asked if it was possible. The short answer is ‘Yes.’ ” see BARNSTEAD page 7

any another site in town, was defeated by an 87-106 vote. The petitioned article on the reserve fund noted that the fund, which had been established in 2008 as a mechanism for donations for a future community/senior center has yet to receive any donations, and called for transferring the remaining fund balance and any accrued interest to the town’s general fund. Selectmen had unanimously opposed the article out of a desire to retain future options for the town-owned site, which has been the subject of controversy for a decade. In 2002, the Lion’s Club offered to expand its facilities off Old Route 109 for the use of
the community on the understanding that the town would take over the operating and maintenance costs. The offer was rejected by a voice vote at town meeting. Five years later, by a majority of 271 to 69, voters approved the purchase of the 18-acre lot and building for $495,000 and the town leased the property to the club, without charging rent, for 10 years. Soon after the property was acquired the Recreational Strategic Planning Team, chaired by Tom Howard, unveiled plans to construct a community/senior center, with playing fields and a swimming pool, at the see M’BORO page 9

MOULTONBOROUGH — Voters overwhelmingly supported the rebuilding of a soccer field at Playground Drive at Saturday’s town meeting, rejecting an attempt to amend the warrant article to redirect $199,500 in funding to an alternate site at the former Lions Club property off from Old Route 109.

Yellowstone bison arrive at Fort Peck
BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Sixty-four bison from Yellowstone National Park were shipped almost 500 miles to northeast Montana’s Fort Peck Reservation on Monday, under a long-stalled relocation initiative meant to repopulate parts of the West with the iconic animals. The transfer — anticipated for months — came in the middle of a snowstorm and with no prior public announcement, as state and tribal officials sought to avoid a courtroom battle with opponents worried about bison competing with cattle for grazing space. Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer described the move as a major step in efforts to restore Yellowstone’s genetically-pure bison across a larger landscape. “This is where we’re going to establish the beachhead of genetically pure bison that will be available as their numbers grow to go to other reservations BISON page 12

Gunfights erupt as insurgency reaches Syrian capital
BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian rebels battled regime forces Monday in a heavily protected, upscale area of Damascus, activists said, in a sign that the country’s outgunned opposition is increasingly turning to insurgent tactics. At least three people were killed in the firefight, which was the most serious clash in the Syrian capital since the uprising
began a year ago. The battle with machine guns and automatic rifles brought the country’s violent conflict to the streets of a neighborhood that houses embassies and senior government officials. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which has a network of activists throughout the country, said 18 government troops were wounded in the fighting
and two later were believed to have died. Rami Abdul-Rahman, who heads the Observatory, described the clash “as the most violent of its kind and closest to security centers in Damascus since the revolution began.” He said several “armed groups of defectors” came from one of the suburbs and fired a rocket-propelled grenade at the see SYRIA page 13
FORT LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) — The Army staff sergeant accused of slaughtering 16 Afghan civilians in a nighttime shooting rampage has a sketchy memory of the night of the massacre, his lawyer said Monday after meeting his client for the first time. Lawyer John Henry Browne said Robert
Bales remembers some details from before and after the killings, but very little or nothing of the time the military believes he went on a shooting spree through two Afghan villages. “He has some memory of some things that happened that night. He has some memories of before the incident and he has some memories of after the incident.
In between, very little,” Browne told The Associated Press by telephone from Fort Leavenworth, where Bales is being held. Pressed on whether Bales can remember anything about the shooting, Browne said, “No,” but added: “I haven’t gotten that far with him yet.” see SUSPECT page 11
ATLANTA (AP) — As a fierce thunderstorm that seemed to come out of nowhere closed in, hot-air balloon pilot Edward Ristaino spotted an open field 4,000 feet below and calmly and tersely warned the five skydivers aboard the craft, “You need to get out now.” He may have saved their lives, but he lost his own. With lightning spidering across the sky and the wind rocking their parachutes, the skydivers floated safely to the ground,
while the balloon was sucked up into the clouds, then sent crashing to earth. Ristaino’s body wasn’t found until Monday, nearly three days later. “If we would have left a minute later, we would have been sucked into the storm,” said skydiver Dan Eaton. The group had taken off Friday evening, ascending into a blue sky from a festival in Fitzgerald, Ga., about 175 miles south of Atlanta. From the air, they could see only a haze that soon turned menacing.
“It started off as just a red dot on the radar, and then it mushroomed very quickly into a big storm. This one just popped up out of the blue,” Ben Hill County Sheriff Bobby McLemore said. The 63-year-old Ristaino sighted a 15-acre clearing, then told the skydivers to get out, uttering the words with remarkable calm. Skydiver Dennis Valdez said he regrets not strapping the pilot in with him when he jumped, but he didn’t realize how dire see next page

Students rally for arrest of ‘watch’ captain Killings continue in Toulouse, France ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — College students around Florida rallied Monday to demand the arrest of a neighborhood watch captain who shot an unarmed black teen last month, though authorities may be hamstrung by a state law that allows people to defend themselves with deadly force. Police have described the man who fired the shot, 28-year-old George Zimmerman, as white; his family says he is Hispanic and is not racist. Zimmerman claims he shot 17-yearold Trayvon Martin last month in selfdefense during a confrontation in a gated community in Sanford. Students held rallies on the campus of Florida A&M University in Tallahassee and outside the Seminole County Criminal Justice Center, where prosecutors are reviewing the case to determine if charges should be filed. The students demanded Zimmerman’s arrest. Zimmerman spotted Martin as he was patrolling his neighborhood on a rainy evening last month and called 911 to report a suspicious person. Against the advice of the 911 dispatcher, Zimmerman then followed Martin, who was walking home from a convenience store with a bag of Skittles in his pocket. from preceding page the situation was. “We had no idea what was going on in the pilot’s head,” Valdez said. “It was only apparent to me post facto that he was definitely very nervous about the weather, rushing to get us out of there.” Likewise, skydiver Jessica Wesnofske said she didn’t comprehend how bad the storm had become until the winds whipped and rocked her parachute on the way down. An updraft took Ristaino into the clouds, 17,000 or 18,000 feet up, he told his ground crew via walkie-talkie. Then the storm apparently collapsed the balloon and twisted it into a streamer. In his last transmission, he reported that he was at 2,000 feet and saw trees beneath him, according to the sheriff. After searching the woods with helicopters, airplanes, horses and allterrain vehicles, crews found Ristaino’s body in the gondola of his twisted-up craft, about eight miles from where the skydivers landed. The storm’s chaotic crosscurrents had complicated searchers’ efforts to figure out where the balloon crashed. Authorities used radar images of the storm to help guide the 50 to 75 searchers across 12 to 15 square miles.
“I don’t think a man who exited his vehicle after the 911 dispatcher told him to stay inside the car can claim self-defense,” Carl McPhail, a 28-yearold Barry University law school student, said at the Sanford rally. The 70 protesters at the Sanford rally chanted “What if it was your son?” and held posters saying, “This is not a race issue.” Many carried Skittles. Martin’s parents and other advocates have said the shooter would have been arrested had he been black. “You would think that Sanford is still in the 1800s claiming that this man can call self-defense for shooting an unarmed boy,” restaurant owner Linda Tillman said. The case has garnered national attention and civil rights activist Al Sharpton and radio host Michael Baisden planned to lead another rally Thursday in Sanford. U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown, D-Fla., along with members of the Congressional Black Caucus and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, have asked that the U.S. Department of Justice to review the case, and White House spokesman Jay Carney said Monday during a briefing that officials there were aware of what happened.
TOULOUSE, France (AP) — A gunman on a motorbike opened fire Monday at a Jewish school, killing a rabbi and his two young sons as they waited for a bus, then chased down a 7-year-old girl, shooting her dead at point-blank range. It was the latest in a series of attacks on minorities that have raised fears of a racist killer on the loose. Authorities said the same weapon, a powerful .45-caliber handgun, was used in two other recent shootings in southwestern France, also involving an assailant who fled by motorbike. Those attacks left three people dead — military paratroopers of North African and Caribbean origin. The shootings echoed across a nation that has been focused on an upcoming presidential race in which issues about religious minorities and race have gained prominence. President Nicolas Sarkozy — facing a hard re-election battle — raised the terrorism alert level in the region to its highest level, while also noting a possible racist motive. “This act is despicable, it cannot go unpunished,” Sarkozy said in a primetime address to the nation. “Each time this man acts, he acts to kill, giving
his victims no chance.” Monday’s attack was as quick and methodical as it was terrifying. At around 8 a.m., with more than 100 students and other worshippers inside a synagogue adjoining the Ozar Hatorah school, the gunman coolly got off his motor scooter. He opened fire at 30-year-old Jonathan Sandler, a rabbi who taught at the school, and his sons, 4-year-old Gabriel and 5-year-old Arieh, while they waited for a bus to a Jewish primary school across town. As the shots rang out, panicked students darted inside the school grounds and the attacker chased them, witnesses said. At one point, he grabbed the principal’s 7-year-old daughter, Miriam Monsonego, by her hair, shot her in the head and fled. Cries of, “There are shots! there are shots!” rang out in the synagogue, recalled a 29-year-old neighbor who gave only his first name, Baroukh. He said some children took refuge in a basement. Nicole Yardeni, a local Jewish official who saw security video of the attack, described the shooter as “determined, athletic and well-toned.” She said he wore a helmet with the visor down. see TOULOUSE page 11

One of the best things you can do for a person is to give them a job. Jobs bring funds for the necessities of life for self and family. Having a job also brings a feeling of self worth and the satisfaction that comes with accomplishment. It brings deserved respect. Let’s take a look at some of those ‘greedy rich people’ that are being demonized and see how many jobs they provide. First in line is Bill Gates who, with his friend and partner Paul Allen, dropped out of college and started the Microsoft Corporation. Their software ingenuity facilitated the change from “dumb” computer terminals tied to a mainframe to the personal computers we have today. Because of their genius, the world changed, and those two people became very wealthy. They made many other people very wealthy, too. Gates is estimated to be the richest person in the world, with assets of $59-billion. His former partner, Paul Allen, is worth $13-billion, and Microsoft CEO Jeff Balmer slightly under $14-billion. Microsoft employs nearly 100,000 people worldwide, about 65,000 of them in this country, virtually all of who pay taxes. Now, considering that his creativity and foresight resulted in the creation of all those jobs and everything attached to them, Bill Gates has been exceedingly generous in sharing his wealth in the hopes of making a better world. He has given billions, yes billions, to medical research in the hopes of finding a cure for aids, and he has given more billions, to try and find a way to improve our failing education results. For those who don’t know, our results in the various measurable education categories place us 13th to 17th in world rankings. Our high school graduation rates hover around 70-percent, with a graduation rate of only 50-percent in most urban areas. Surprisingly, many educators have been resisting the financial contributions of Bill Gates and many others, preferring to continue to teach in the same ways that brought us to mediocre levels in world rankings. The reader might access this Washington Post article to get a feel for the disdain some educators feel towards a person who is contributing billions of dollars to try and find a way to overcome the ever falling results in education. (http://voices.washingtonpost. com/answer-sheet/guest-bloggers/ the-bill-ga...) Another bright young man
who has contributed to changing the world in the way people communicate is Jeff Zuckerberg, the founder of “Facebook”. Forbes 400 had him listed at $17.5-billion in net worth but since Facebook recently underwent an Initial Public Offering (IPO) of its stock, it is now estimated that this 27-year-old creative entrepreneur is worth approximately $27-billion. He has offered to make sizeable contributions in the hope of improving our education results. In fact, Zuckerberg donated $100-million to the city of Newark, NJ, and only asked that he be allowed to have a say in how the money was going to be used. His offer was sneered at, as educators didn’t believe he had any knowledge of substance to contribute. Zuckerberg’s Facebook social networking creation now has almost 850-million users, none of whom pay anything for the service but use it to communicate and share information with people around the country and around the globe. Facebook employs about 3,000 people in jobs that didn’t exist before Zuckerberg’s entrepreneurial genius took hold. It is a tribute to him and his staff’s skills that they have been able to manage and grow that creation with those 3,000 employees. No one has to pay to use Facebook. A tally of the wealthiest includes others in computer/internet related services includes Google which has three people with a total net worth of $39.6-billion, and provides almost 35,000 jobs. Has anyone had to pay to access the Google search engine? Or has anyone had to pay to use Google’s “G-Mail”? Oracle’s Larry Ellison has a net worth of about $33-billion and he provides almost 100,000 jobs. The late Steve Jobs, founder of Apple, was worth $7-billion. His innovative contributions have been beyond simply leading edge — he led and the computer world followed. His company, Apple, has 75,000 employees, most of who are in this country. Dell computer’s Michael Dell has $15-billion in assets and his company provides over 100,000 jobs. There are also a couple of very forward thinking entrepreneurs who had the foresight to see that computerization and the Internet offered huge, yet to be explored marketing opportunities. Meg Whitman, who founded “e-Bay”, checks in at $6.2-billion and provides near 28,000 jobs. Jeff Bazos, see next page
LETTERS Why are reasonable Republicans allowing this verbal abuse? To the editor, What has happened to the Republican Party? They have become the most verbally abusive, and have shown the most outrageous behavior, I’ve seen from a group of people since the 1960s. They have attacked women, children, the elderly, the poor, minorities and homosexuals relentlessly. Republicans no longer appear to be a viable party that exists in the USA for the benefit of all the people of the USA. Now, I am well aware not all Republicans are doing this. However, why aren’t those who don’t agree, not speaking out against these types of behaviors? By remaining quiet you
are only condoning this. You can still have your conservative views without being abusive. What sickens me the most is the fact these people claim to be Christians. This is not Christian behavior. In Leviticus 19:18 the Lord says “Thou shalt love they neighbor as thyself”. I also wonder how can we, the USA, tell other nations to improve their human rights policies when we can’t even do it in our own country? All we have been showing lately is anger and hate. What must the other nations think of us? Nancy Parsons Laconia
I learned a lot about Gilford during the day I spent at the polls To the editor, First, my compliments to all the candidates in Gilford, who thought enough of their town to commit to running for elective office. When I first “ran” for Budget Committee some years ago, I was unopposed and can now state that I much prefer last Tuesday’s version, with a large slate of candidates for the voter to choose from. Secondly, my thanks to everyone who took the time to exercise their
franchise and vote. I learned a lot about my community spending the day outside the polls and it was well worth being there. Lastly, thanks to all that supported me by vote, letters to the editor, at the polling station and placing signs. I appreciate the trust that has been place in me as a member of the Budget Committee and will work hard to maintain that trust. Richard Grenier Gilford
There’s a right way and a wrong way to find two-thirds of a vote To the editor, Let’s have a little math lesson here. It seems that reporters need to learn some basic arithmetic. (These days a lot of reporters need to learn some basic English, but let’s not get started on that.) Center Harbor’s Building Renovation won by 17 votes, not by 5. (It’s not a big difference, but let’s get our facts straight.) When a proposal requires a 2/3 majority, it needs twice as many votes in favor as votes against. So, since Article 2 had 81 negative votes, it needed 162 affirmative votes to gain approval. It got 179. That’s 17 votes more than the 162 required. It “won by 17.” (Two years ago, some reporters made the same mistake, saying that the proposal “lost by 6 votes” when it correctly “lost by 16.”) Likewise, in Moultonboro, the SB-2
“fell short by 406 votes,” not by 163. (If 163 voters had SWITCHED from “no” to “yes’” it would have won, but that is not the same as “falling short by 163.”) With 575 “no” votes, it needed 863 “yes” votes to meet the 60-percent requirement (which is 50-percent more “yes” votes than “no” votes). That’s “falling short by 406 votes” (the number of ADDITIONAL affirmative votes it needed in order to win.) We don’t have the same confusion when a proposal (or a candidate) needs a simple majority. We say it “won by” or “lost by” the difference between the two tallies. We dont say “if xyz number of voters had changed sides” (which is HALF the difference between the two tallies.) It’s when we deal with the 60-percent or 2/3 requirements that we get twisted around. Bob Beem

LETTERS Babies in the womb deserve to live as much as the rest of us To the editor, A great deal of thanks to New Hampshire lawmakers who recently voted to make abortions more difficult to arrange here in New Hampshire. I offer a couple of stories to support the saving of lives before birth. Recently in a hospital doctors fought hard to save the life of a baby that was in distress still within the mother’s womb, in the second trimester of her pregnancy. And success was there, a life was saved. At the same time, an abortionist put to death an unborn child taken from a mother who was also in her second trimester. One baby saved, one baby killed. A woman went to see her doctor with what she believed to be a big problem. She was in the second trimester, about 25 weeks into the pregnancy. She told the doctor that with two kids at home already, one of them still under a year old, she didn’t think she could cope with having another child. Couldn’t the doctor do something to make conditions easier for
her? Make her life more stress free? The doctor said she could kill one of the children, maybe the one not yet a year old. This would give her some rest time which would be beneficial for the growing baby inside her. She was horrified at the suggestion. The idea of murder appalled her. She said that she was only thinking of an abortion for the unborn, not murder. The doctor pointed out that murder is murder, even if the baby is in the womb. In the second trimester of pregnancy, the baby has begun to move, kick, and respond to outside stimuli. The baby is a living, growing human, a person. What makes some people believe that abortion is okay? Those people ought to see the ultrasound picture of the developing 25-week old infant in the womb, a growing child deserving of life as much as the rest of us deserve to live. And don’t forget, your mom chose life. Abortion is murder. Life is precious. Harry Mitchell Laconia

Gilmanton school warrant includes a budget increased 2.6 % To the editor, Thank you voters for your support of the Gilmanton SB-2 school petition. The final numbers are 533 yes votes and 300 no votes. I also want to thank the letter writers for their voices on this important issue. The last School District meeting will be held at 10 a.m. at the Gilmanton School on Saturday March 24. Voting will take place on the warrant articles, a copy of the warrant articles can be found by searching the, “Gilman-
ton School District Meeting Website”. If the entire warrant article requests are accepted the school budget will increase $259,144.00 over last year’s budget, an increase of 2.6-percent. I question the need for these increases. Please take the time to read the warrant articles and attend this very important meeting. Your input and votes are very important; it’s your tax dollars that fund these increases. Douglas Isleib Gilmanton Iron Works
In the old west, shooting from the hip tended to end badly To the editor, Referring to March 16 Daily Sun article by Gail Ober, I don’t know Kevin Hayes personally but recall he seems to be wrong on every issue, same as for the Wesley Woods tax status. So why can’t Kevin do the same research our Supreme Court did?
In the old west, shooting from the hip like that, without understanding who you were shooting at, left you dead. I’d settle for Kevin no longer a selectman. At least we still have two excellent selectmen! Jack Stephenson Gilford
from preceding page the creator of Amazon.Com, has $19.1-billion and 14,000 employees. These handful of computer/Internet related people have been creative, forward thinking, risk takers who have literally changed the world. Most of us take advantage of that genius at little or no cost to us. And by the way, these few people are providing about 380,000 jobs, in just this one business
segment. Some are willing to put their boot on the neck of creativity and entrepreneurship, all in the name of “fairness”. They demonize the wealthy job creators and call them greedy. Greed, one of the seven deadly sins . . . just like envy. Beware of the unintended consequences resulting from that demonization. (Bob Meade is a Laconia resident.)

LETTERS Having ‘The Talk’ about drugs & alcohol could change a teen’s life To the editor, I would like to excerpt an article written by the Chief of Police in a small (6,300 pop.) town of which I have had a connection with since the mid 1960s. I have paraphrased much of it for brevity sake. After an annual three day celebration of the vibrant history and related heritage of the town, drawing some 50,000 to 60,000 visitors which was very successful in many ways, especially from the standpoint of safety, the chief reported that although there had been very few arrests (five), too many of them involved teens and alcohol. His timely article, sadly, was too late for one local high school senior girl, who died in a car wreck probably as he penned his words. So, with all that stated, I pass on his words of advice for all who have anything to do with our kids; parents, teachers, grandparents, aunts and uncles and town/school officials. With Spring Break season here and proms and graduations soon to follow, we need to be on the offense to keep kids safe. We need to have ‘The Talk’. One poor decision made during any one of these exciting but critical times can severely impact a teen’s life. A citation for ‘Minor in Possession’ of alcohol can determine what schools you will or will not be able to attend or if you will be able to attend at all or even if you will be welcomed into the military. A felony charge of marijuana possession carries much heavier penalties and will in many cases close doors. Add that to those charges being tied to a vehicle accident with the likely hood of injury or death (of perhaps a friend), presents even more life changing penalties and emotional memories that will last a lifetime. ‘The Talk’ has to come from the parent, or a family member who has a mentor relationship with that teen. If the child is old enough to know about alcohol and drugs, he/she is old
enough for you to initiate a serious discussion about use and abuse. — Help them distinguish the difference between adult appropriate and moderate use of alcohol vs. abuse and inappropriate behavior. — Use concrete examples from the news, TV and movies. — EMPHATICALLY point out that alcohol use by teens is ALWAYS illegal. — Discuss the bodily damage drugs and alcohol can do to a still developing teen. — Discuss the specific problems of abuse that have a greater chance of arising such as fights, hangovers, sexual behavior and other life changing poor judgments. — Establish rules and firm consequences. Let them know just how serious you are about this issue. — Know where they are and with whom they hang with. And don’t yield to ‘…but everyone will be there’ or …’it’s just not fair!’ — If you are not comfortable with this ‘Talk’ practice; write notes, give ‘The Talk’ in a mirror so you know your expression is meaningful. (I think my mother had lock on this one. She had a look that would be with me whenever I was tempted to cross the line). Some helpful websites are: www. timetotalk.org and www.adolescentsubstance-abuse.com. Don’t just pass these on to them; go online with them. Let them know how serious you are. The message has to come from you. Research has shown that kids whose parents have had regular discussions about use and abuse are 40-percent less likely to use these substances. In light of recent history in Moultonborough the parents, teachers and town leaders can and MUST lead by example. Thanks to Chief Pete Wingert for his wise words. Rick Heath Moultonborough

To the editor, I wonder what C. Bradford Morgan would think about this statement: “Every child does not deserve a public education; instead, they deserve a publicly funded education”. The first is a locked system that is government funded, staffed with government employees, and teaches a specified curriculum: a couple of systems fits all. Add to that a growing philosophy that they know what is best for the children than their parents. I have personally heard this view and have video of teachers saying just that. We also see this trend in society in general – let the professionals make the decisions for us. The second is a 180-degree change of direction by putting the parents in charge to choose the best of a number of systems for their child (which could included a “government school”, as C. Bradford Morgan put it). This is how most of society works still – parents making choices for their children (seems to have worked well for the last few hundred years). This used to be the norm up until the rise of the progressive movement in the United States at the beginning of the last cen-
tury. Then, such progressive luminaries as John Dewey advocated for what has become our current “industrial style” system that become so union dominated. It may well be time that in order for our nation to educationally progress forward, we have to return back to letting parents, make those decisions. This is emblematic of the two polarizing political views now becoming more and more public – who knows what is best for society, its citizens, and the children? Is it government, where it seems that our educated bureaucrats (assumed to be non-partisan in theory and rarely in practice) are making more and more “for the common good” as they insert themselves more and more into what used to be considered “private society”? Bureaucrats are deciding that they will make those decisions independently, regardless if empowered by actual law or not? We end up with government by regulation instead of by legislation by our elected (and therefore, accountable) peers. Or is it individual citizens, in their own “pursuit of happiness”, making see next page
Cityâ€™s 4th of July Committee weighing options on celebration date By Michael Kitch
LACONIA â€” With the Fourth of July falling in the middle of the week this year â€” on a Wednesday â€”Kevin Dunleavy, director of parks and recreation, told the Parks & Recreation Commission last night that the committee planning the parade, carnival and fireworks is considering celebrating Independence Day on another day. Last week Dunleavy approached the City Council about celebrating the holiday on the preceding Saturday â€” June 30th â€” in hopes of enlisting more marchers in the parade and drawing more people to the carnival. When councilors raised no objections Dunleavy said that he would continue to seek the opinion of other interested parties. Repeating his reasoning to the commissioners, Dunleavy said that the committee would like to move forward while conceding â€œI anticipate some people will not react positively.â€? Mitch Hamel asked what if any
adjustments other communities are making. Dunleavy said that he was unaware of any town planning to celebrate other than on the fourth. But, City Councilor Bob Hamel (Ward 5) pointed out that because the holiday was on the Wednesday that was the day most people would not be working. â€œItâ€™s a holiday,â€? he said, â€œand if thereâ€™s no parade, no fireworks, no celebration , what are you going to do?â€? Dunleavy suggested that holding the parade earlier in the day, perhaps ten in the morning, would improve participation. He said that by the afternoon people were spending time with their families and friends. While some agreed, Hamel said that if the parade were held later, more of those who lined the route would be likely to stay for the carnival in Opechee Park. Acknowledging that time was running short, Dunleavy said that he would pass the suggestions on to the committee. He said that the committee must make its decision in the next few weeks.
BARNSTEAD from page one While money was arguably the reason the town reached out to the county, money was discussed but did not seem to be foremost on the minds of the voters who spoke at Saturdayâ€™s meeting. What seemed to be the key questions which were asked over and over again at the other public gathering were also asked at the town meeting. Significantly, what would happen to the existing four full-time police officers, what would happen to the parttime secretary and part-time police officers, and would there be a physical police presence in Barnstead, preferably 24 hours a day. â€œWe are under a microscope,â€? said former Selectman and Police Study Committee member Gordon Preston, who noted he had been fielding a lot of phone calls from other small communities about the unique-to-New Hampshire proposal to cede policing authority to a different and existing police entity.
â€œI truly urge you to go for this contract,â€? Preston said noting, in his observations, the police department has â€œhad issuesâ€? that are similar to those seen by many small departments. Many who spoke against the proposed contract with the sheriff, said they liked the idea that they could go to the Police Department and talk to the part-time clerk, whose position would have been eliminated if the Sheriff took over the police contract. â€œSo we wonâ€™t have anyone to talk to?â€? asked one man. Wiggin dispelled that by telling the audience that his intentions were to hire the same four pull-time officers who already patrolled the town, leaving Borgia to supervise the departt ment as a Deputy Sheriff with a sergeant rank. John Starkey was one of those who was happy with the local control Barnsteadâ€™s citizens still held over their police department and who said see next page
from preceding page their own decisions for themselves with a government sitting in the way back, and getting out of the way by enforcing and protecting our individual rights and allowing the private sector to solve its own issues and problems? The bigger the government, the smaller the citizen. The more that government intervenes, the more that crowding out of private society happens. As that happens, the foundation
of our republic is weakened. Iâ€™d rather see parents make the decision and my trust is with them. After all, as one looks across the nation, it is clear that our current system has severe problems that merely throwing more money to do more of the same invokes t that popular definition of insanity. In this, Doug Lambert is correct: more choice, not less. Skip Murphy Gilford

Worsman and Simpson among 7 state Representatives to question evolution CONCORD — Representatives Colette Worsman of Meredith and Tyler Simpson of New Hampton, both Republicans, were among the seven members of the New Hampshire House of Representatives who voted against scuttling a bill to require that evolution be taught as a theory in public schools. House Bill 1148 would require not only that evolution be taught as
a theory but also that “the theorists’ political and ideological viewpoints and their position on the concept of atheism” be included in the instruction. On a roll call vote the House rejected the bill by the overwhelming margin of 280 to 7. The remaining 16 representatives from Belknap County, also all Republicans, voted with the majority. — Michael Kitch
COUNTY from page one living adjustment (COLA) and socalled “step” pay raises for both union and non-union employees in their proposed budget. The commission further budgeted for a 30-percent increase in the cost of health insurance for county employees, only to learn that premiums will rise by 38.5-percent beginning July 1. Ed Philpot, chairman of the County Commission, has indicated that neither wages nor benefits are among the issues than remain to be resolved with union members. Tardif notes that on March 12 the county delegation met for a “budget work session.” When the meeting convened, the delegation immediately voted to enter a “non-meeting” to consider “strategy or negotiations with respect to collective bargaining,”
which was not posted. The meeting was closed to the public and press and lasted about 90 minutes. Tardif claims that the “contract negotiating team” is an advisory committee created by the county commission and subject to the Right-to-Know law. He allowed that the “contract negotiating team” and union negotiators are exempt from the law at the request of one or the other. However, Tardif argued that the county delegation has no authority over either union or non-union employees or collective bargaining agreements, which is the preserve of the commission. Instead, the delegation’s authority is confined to compensation and benefits awarded to the elected county officers — the county see next page
BARNSTEAD from page one he would pay for public works, fire and police services and felt is essential they all work together. Describing himself as a direct descendant of those who fought against the British (and taking a good-natured poke at Preston, who is a British native) he said he has “more confidence in local taxes.” Starkey said he gets upset when his taxes go to Washington or Concord and he didn’t want to add Laconia to the list. Northwood Police Chief and Barnstead resident Glenon Drolet spoke directly against subcontracting services to the Sheriff’s Department. “You’re giving up total control of your police department,” began Drolet, himself a former Rockingham County Sheriff’s Deputy. “Hold your local people responsible and don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater,” he continued. “If your officers don’t respond the way you want, get rid of them.” Drolet reminded people that though Barnstead is a small town “stuff happens in this time,” saying that Franconia and Mont Vernon are small towns too but horrible crimes happened in both those places. Another woman who gave her name as Carol echoed Drolet. She referenced the MRI report that presented a rather unflattering look at the management of the current police department - the entire report is posted on the Barnstead Website - and said the town could resolve those issues which is why they elect selectmen. “But don’t give up control,” she said. Jim Barnard, a former Barnstead Police chief who was just re-elected to another term as selectman, said that if there is an issue in the existing police department, the town should
change it. “We need to address these issues fairly and honestly,” Barnard said. “In my native Hungary,” said Kathy Preston, “We have a saying that fish start smelling from the head. Get someone to run the department as it should.” Resident John Savage asked Selectmen if alternatives other than contracting with the sheriff’s department were discussed and outgoing Selectman Kathy Grillo said Selectmen hadn’t looked at any yet. Selectman’s Chair Robert LaRoche said he saw a cost benefit to going with the sheriff’s department because they have detectives, special equipment and prosecutors, to which Rep. Guy Comtois, R-Barnstead warned that instead of being governed by a fivemember board of selectmen elected directly by residents, control would go to an 18-member county delegation where Barnstead had one vote and parts of three others. Yet others chastised the selectmen for waiting for a “blank promise” from the sheriff’s department instead of fixing the way the department is being run. Others said the selectmen should investigate other options. At the request of five members, the vote was held by secret written ballot. In the end only about eight percent of the town’s 2,733 registered voters cast ballots. Following the vote, Wiggin said he was willing and able to do whatever the residents of Barnstead wanted and needed his office to do and that hasn’t changed. “In this case, they voted to keep local control. I hope they address the issues that need addressing and that the residents support their police department,” he said.
Town added to civil suit over health insurance settlement By Gail OBer
BELMONT — A Belknap County Superior Court judge ruled that the town of Belmont could be included in a civil action filed against two of its selectmen and its town administrator regarding a $11,100 settlement to one of the selectmen. George Condodemetraky filed the request for summary judgment when he learned the town had paid Selectmen’s Chair Jon Pike a sum of money to reimburse him for his own health insurance premiums for the years after his divorce from Town Clerk Cynthia DeRoy. Initially filed against Pike, Selectman Ron Cormier and Town Administrator Jeanne Beaudin individually, Judge James Barry Jr. ruled yesterday to allow Condodemetraky’s motion to add the town as a respondent. Pike is represented by his own attorney, Paul Fitzgerald, while Beaudin and Cormier are represented by Town Attorney Laura Spector. In the initial response filed on behalf of Beaudin and Cormier, Spector has asked the judge to dismiss the case because, in part, it was filed against Beaudin and Cormier individually. Spector was at last night’s Selectman’s meeting and was there to meet with the board in what is commonly called a “non-meeting” but in reality is a legal consultation with an entity - in this case the Belmont Board of Selectmen - and its attorney.
When asked if there would be a reconvening of the board or any announcements made after the legal consultation, Selectman Chair Jon Pike said, “Likely not.” Reconvening after consultation is one of Spector’s defenses of the actions of Cormier, who is accused by Condodemetraky of moving and seconding the motion to settle with Pike in a non-public meeting, ostensibly violating RSA 91-A the state’s Right to Know law for acting to appropriate town funds in a non-public setting and acting without a quorum. One of Condodemetraky’s clams against Beaudin was that she didn’t say on the agenda that Selectmen would reconvene after the “non-meeting.” In her initial response, Spector said Cormier’s action came in a public session reconvened after the “non-meeting” with Cormier on May 6. By that time, though, Pike and Selectman David Morse had both recused themselves from the meeting, leaving Cormier the last and only Selectman in the room. Spector also noted that while what Condodemetraky alleges about Cormier is technically true, N.H. State law makes no provisions for appointing alternative selectman and Cormier had consulted with two former selectmen Ron Mitchell and Ward Peterson. Her response stated all three, Cormier, Mitchell and Peterson, agreed this was the best was to settle the threatened lawsuit. No date has been set for a trial.
from preceding page attorney, sheriff, treasurer, commissioner and register of deeds — which it sets biennially. Tardif acknowledged that the commissioners included appropriations for the compensation and benefits for union employees in the proposed budget, pending the ratification of collective bargaining agreements. Although the delegation must approve these appropriations, it cannot discuss them in a closed meeting. Moreover, Tardif insists that the delegation, which has no authority over collective bargaining agreements, cannot meet behind closed doors with the “contract negotiating team.” The only reasonable purpose of such a meeting, he claimed, could be “to sway
or convince a majority of the delegation to amend the Commission’s proposed budget which includes salary appropriation amounts for an anticipated two-percent COLA (cost of living adjustment) and three-percent Merit Raises in excess of $200,000 absent any contractual agreements requiring such appropriations.” If the delegation approves these appropriations, Tardif concludes it could do so only on the strength of information it received at the non-meeting. He argued that the non-meeting was intended to deprive the public of the rationale for either increasing or decreasing appropriations to fund collective bargaining agreements that have been neither approved by the county commission nor ratified by the unions.
M’BORO from page one site for approximately $5 million, which would cost some $208,000 a year to staff and operate. When the Moultonborough Citizens’ Alliance challenged the project, the battle was joined. Howard’s team placed two articles on the warrant for the 2008 town meeting. The first, to raise and appropriate $375,000 for architectural and engineering services for the project failed 256 to 198. But, the second, appropriating $100,000 to a capital reserve fund for the center, carried by a eleven votes,
148 to 137. With plans for the community center stalled, town officials turned their attention to playing fields. In 2009, voters overwhelmingly approved an appropriation, including the balance of $87,500 remaining in the capital reserve fund for the community/senior center, to improve a playing field, either by rebuilding the existing field at Playground Drive, at the top of Moultonborough Neck, or building a new field at the Lion’s Club site. see next page

The Importance of an Oral Examination A healthy mouth does not hurt or interfere with comfort during chewing, and a really healthy mouth enables you to look great when you smile. Your dentist is trained to examine and diagnose problems ranging from subtle things that you don’t even know about, to major problems that you wish you didn’t know about. Oral conditions can also have an impact on systemic (general medical) conditions. The human body is complex and it’s all connected. Regular check-ups are important for detecting dental problems at an early stage, and this can help to keep dental costs to a minimum. During the exam, your dentist looks for cavities, gum disease, bite problems, and esthetic problems. He also performs screening for oral cancer which is more successfully treated with early detection. Another condition that benefits from early detection is gum disease, which you may not even know you have since it is painless in the early to middle stages. Your dentist will evaluate the gums and recommend proper treatment. Treating mild gum disease (gingivitis) is less time consuming and less expensive than treating severe gum disease (periodontitis). Did you know that a person with diabetes or heart disease is at greater risk of complications if they also suffer from gum disease? Remember: the absence of pain does not mean you have a healthy mouth. Have you had a dental examination this year?

Recycling bins to proliferate throughout city By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — Beginning soon residents and visitors will be able to recycle when they are out and about throughout the city. With a $45,000 grant awarded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the Parks and Recreation has purchased 240 bins, which are divided in two with one half for recyclable materials and the other for disposable trash. Kevin Dunleavy, director of Parks & Recreation, said that bins will be placed in all the city parks and playing fields as well as at the five municipal beaches. Bins will also be distributed around downtown and along Lakeside Avenue at The Weirs. Bestway Disposal Services, Inc. , which operates a similarly divided At the head of the WOW Trail at Lakeport, Kevin Dunleavy (right), director of Parks and Recreation, truck, will be emptying joined by Ann Saltmarsh, who manages the recycling program at the Department of Public Works, and the containers on a freTyler Smith and Kyle Buffum (left) of Bestway Disposal Services, Inc. displayed one of the new recyquent schedule.

Dunleavy said waste, which is currently more than $150 a ton. that the schedule will be adjusted as required. “Every little bit helps,” he said, “and these bins will Dunleavy reminded residents that recycling metal make it easy for everyone.” from preceding page The choice between the playing fields rekindled opposition to the community/senior center as its opponents suspected that a playing field at the site would be the first step toward pursuing construction of the larger complex. Their suspicions were confirmed when, early in 2010, Town Administrator Carter Terenzini presented a plan for a building, playing field and parking lot on the property. Opposition to the project at planning board hearings a petition asking the Board of Selectmen to halt all planning and curtail all expenditures for the redevelopment of the Lion’s Club property until a public hearing was held led to the appointment of the “Blue Ribbon Commission on Community Services and Facilities.” The commission reported in April 2011, recommending that the rehabilitation of the playing field at Playground Drive “proceed as soon as possible.” The commission also recommended constructing a gymnasium “on or adjacent to existing school land,” noting that while it considered the Lions’ Club property it “does not believe that is the best approach.” Elsewhere in its report the commission acknowledged that the Lion’s Club building “continues to serve as a foundation for the community” as a home for clubs and programs, including the Boy Scouts, meals-on-wheels and food pantry.” But, the report concluded that the building is sufficient to support these activities “for several years into the future” and made no mention of a community/senior center. When article 22, which dealt with the soccer field, came to the floor Saturday, Chris Shipp pointed out that the 2009 article had been supported by a wide majority of voters but had not been carried out by selectmen. Selectman Russ Wakefield said he wasn’t on the board in 2009, but that the wet conditions of the Lions Club property raised doubts in the minds of many people.“There were a lot of unknowns at that time and it made no sense to put money into a pit. If it had been poorly planned and carried out we would have been crucified.”
He said there were many concerns about the impact of the project on abutters to the Lions Club property, which might be flooded if the grade of the Lions Club property was changed. Howard sought to amend the article to redirect the funds to the Lions Club property, maintaining that there would only be a one percent change in grade and that the field would be nowhere near the actual wetlands on the property. He said the dimensions of the proposed field were such that it was smaller than a regulation size field and could not be used for varsity competition. Howard said, “I may not be right, but I will stand up for what I believe is right.” Paul Punitrieri opposed the amendment, saying that the Playground Drive site was the best choice. “Why in the world would we want to put it anywhere else,’’ as did Josh Bartlett, who said that the town had a lot more information than it did in 2009 and that the Lions Club site wasn’t wanted by the Recreation Department. Newly elected Selectman Jonathan Tolman also spoke against the amendment, citing what he said was “a very thorough review’’ by the Blue Ribbon Commission which put the Playground Drive property as the top priority. The proposed amendment was overwhelmingly rejected in a showing of green voting cards, as was a second amendment proposed by Howard. Voters agreed to add $100,000 to the proposed $7.9 million operating budget in order for the town to to enter into a five-year lease purchase agreement for a new heavy rescue truck. The move became necessary when the fire department’s 25- year-old Rescue 1 truck failed to pass inspection due to a cracked frame. Voters also approved a collective bargaining agreement with the newly unionized police department which adds $19,720 to the budget. The town is currently appealing a Public Employees Labor Relations Board’s 2-1 ruling certifying the union to the state Supreme Court.
Laconia planning director invites public to ‘visioning session’ for prison property By Michael Kitch
LACONIA — The public is invited to what Planning Director Shanna Saunders called a “visioning session” on the future of the property that formerly housed the Laconia State School and Lakes Region Correctional Facility, which will be held this evening at the Middle School beginning at 6 p.m. The session is being funded by $3,000 grant from the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. The session will feature a roundtable discussion among invited stakeholders and public officials, including representatives from the City Council, Lakes Region Planning Commission, Belknap County Economic Development Council, Ahern State Park Advisory Committee. Senators Chuck Morse of Salem, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee. Jeanie Forrester of Meredith, who serves on the committee, will also attend. The discussion will be moderated by Roger Hawk of Hawk Planning, LLC of Concord, using the information and recommendations presented by Via
Nuova, a consulting firm that considered the reuse of the property in 2010. “We want to draw on the expertise of the stakeholders and officials,” Saunders said, adding that she expected the session would rank options for redeveloping the site. Saunders said that following the round-table discussion, members of the panel will address questions or comments from members of the public. Last year, the Legislature directed the Department of Administrative Services (DAS) to offer the 212-acre property, together with two smaller parcels nearby, to the city of Laconia for $10 million and, if the city declined it, to offer it to Belknap County. If neither the city nor the county purchased the property, it would be put on the open market. An appraisal of the property prepared for the DAS placed the value of the site at $2.16 million. The appraisal included the two smaller lots leased by the state to the city with an aggregate value of $700,000. Excluding the value of the smaller lots, there is little difference between the appraisals performed for the state and the city.
SUSPECT from page 2 In an earlier interview with CBS, Browne said unequivocally that Bales can’t remember the shootings. Bales, 38, has not been charged yet in the March 11 shootings, though charges could come this week. The killings sparked protests in Afghanistan, endangered relations between the two countries and threatened to upend American policy over the decade-old war. Earlier Monday, Browne met with his client behind bars for the first time to begin building a defense and said the soldier gave a powerfully moving account of what it is like to be on the ground in Afghanistan. Browne said he and Bales, who is being held in an isolated cell at the military prison, met for more than three hours at Fort Leavenworth. “What’s going on on the ground in Afghanistan, you read about it. I read about it. But it’s totally different when you hear about it from somebody who’s been there,” Browne told the AP. “It’s just really emotional.” Browne, a Seattle attorney who defended serial killer Ted Bundy and a thief known as the “Barefoot Bandit,”
has said he has handled three or four military cases. The defense team includes a military defense lawyer, Maj. Thomas Hurley. The lawyers have said they plan to meet with Bales this week. At their meeting, Browne said Bales clarified a story, provided initially by the soldier’s family, about the timing of a roadside bomb that blew off the leg of one of Bales’ friends. It was two days before the shooting, not one, and Bales didn’t see the explosion, just the aftermath, Browne said. The details of the blast could not be immediately confirmed. Military officials have said that Bales, after drinking on a southern Afghanistan base, crept away to two villages overnight, shooting his victims and setting many of them on fire. Nine of the dead were children and 11 belonged to one family. Bales arrived at Fort Leavenworth last Friday and is being held in the same prison as other prominent defendants. Pfc. Bradley Manning, who is charged with leaking classified documents to the WikiLeaks website, has been held there on occasion as he awaited trial.
TOULOUSE from page 3 “You see a man park his motorcycle, start to shoot, enter the school grounds and chase children to catch one and shoot a bullet into her head,” Yardeni said. “It’s unbearable to watch and you can’t watch anymore after that. He was looking to kill.” Toulouse Prosecutor Michel Valet said a 17-year-old boy was also seriously wounded. “He shot at everything he had in front of him, children and adults,” Valet said. “The children were chased inside the school.” All of the dead were dual IsraeliFrench citizens, the Israeli Foreign Ministry said. By 8 p.m., as a dozen police blocked access to the school,
cries again echoed from within as community members mourned over the victims’ bodies before they were to be flown to Israel for burial. Authorities immediately increased security at schools and synagogues around the country. The attack revolted France, where school shootings are extremely rare, and drew strong condemnation from Israel and the United States. France has suffered bouts of criminal anti-Semitism over the years, often targeting synagogues or Jewish cemeteries. Monday’s slayings were the deadliest to target a Jewish site since Palestinian militants shot and killed six people in the popular Jo Goldenberg deli in Paris’ Marais district in 1982.

Laconia arrests 4 for DWI over holiday weekend LACONIA - City police arrested four people over the St. Patrick’s Day weekend and charged them with driving under the influence of alcohol. Lt. Matthew Canfield said the department had one additional DWI patrol car paid for by a DWI patrol grant that was on the road from 9 p.m. Saturday to 1 a.m. Sunday. According to Police logs and Canfield arrested Friday night was Bradford Taylor, 42, of 4 Hill St. Canfield said just after midnight, a caller reported seeing a full-sized white van traveling in the wrong lane on Belmont Road headed toward Laconia. At 5:47 a.m. Saturday, police said they received a report of a vehicle on Water Street that was idling with its lights on. Officer arrested Aaron Marchione, 22, of 53 Parsonage Drive and charged him with driving while intoxicated. Steven Capachiette, 56, of 121 Keyser Road in Meredith was charged with DWI at 12:32 a.m. Sunday after police arrested him on the Laconia ByPass near the intersection of Belmont Road.
Brandee Laundry, 32, of 97 Winter St. was charged with driving while intoxicated after police received a phone call from Blueberry Lane that a woman who appeared intoxicated had pulled into the driveway and had just reentered her car and was driving away. Police responded to a medical call at the downtown night spot Funky Monkey at 11:33 p.m. Saturday and took one man into protective custody for drunkenness. Justin M. DeWolfe, 17, of 29 Baron Drive Apt. 2 was also charged with one count of disorderly conduct and one count of simple assault. Police responded back to the night club at 1:05 a.m. for a report of another fight outside the club but no arrests were noted in the logs. Gilford Police reported no DWI arrests over the weekend. Chief Kevin Keenan said he had three patrol units out Saturday night and Sunday morning and reported an overall quiet weekend. Meredith Police reported one arrest for DWI on Sunday afternoon. — Gail Ober
GILFORD — New hours for the Office of the Town Clerk Tax Collector are Monday through Wednesday and Fridays from 8:30 a.m. t0 4:30 p.m. Thursday the office will be open from 8:30 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. Town Clerk Denise Gonyer said the change in the Thursday night hours will be effective beginning this Thursday, March 22, and are the result of the loss of one full-time employee as of last Friday.
Gonyer wanted taxpayers to note that there may be times during lunch breaks and times of peak business when phone calls will be answered by the machine. She said the employees in her office would return them as soon as possible. She also said people could also access the town clerk’s tax collectors service by mailing tax bills and going on line at www.gilfordnh.org or firstname.lastname@example.org. — Gail Ober
BISON from page 2 and other public lands all across the West,” Schweitzer said. Tribal and state officials signed an agreement Friday allowing the transfer to take place, said Robert Magnan with the Fort Peck Fish and Game Department. Caught off guard were landowners and property rights groups that opposed the relocation. They filed a request for a temporary restraining order Monday afternoon to halt the move. Helena attorney Cory Swanson said moving the animals without public notice following years of controversy amounted to a “sneak attack.” After state district Judge John McKeon in Glasgow did not rule on the request by the close of business
Monday, Swanson said he would return Tuesday with a request for the animals to be ordered back to the Yellowstone area. For the Assiniboine and Sioux tribes of Fort Peck, tribal leaders said the relocation offers a chance to revive their connection with an animal that historically provided food, clothing and shelter for their ancestors. The trip from Yellowstone was capped by a welcoming caravan of tribal members who fell into line behind the trailers that carried the bison across the Missouri River and onto the reservation. Dozens of tribal members crowded the pen as the bison were unloaded in a field 25 miles north of Poplar, their camera flashes spooking several animals until officials forced back the onlookers. A drum group gathered to sing a traditional song of welcome.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, March 20, 2012— Page 13
Peyton Manning finalizing deal with Broncos DENVER (AP) — The Denver Broncos got their Man. Make that Peyton Manning. Pending final contract negotiations, Manning will join John Elway’s Broncos with hopes of winning another Super Bowl. So much for Tebowmania. Still to be decided is what happens to last season’s quarterback sensation, Tim Tebow. The Broncos and Manning agent Tom Condon spent Monday working out parameters of a deal expected to be worth about $95 million over five years after the NFL’s only four-time MVP called Elway, the Broncos’ revered QB-turned-executive, and told him he had decided to come to Denver. Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams also said Manning let him know that he had picked the Broncos. Adams released a statement Monday confirming the Titans were out of the running and later said to The Tennessean: “He called me himself and told me he wasn’t coming, that he made his mind up to go with Denver.” Besides the Titans, the San Francisco 49ers had been a finalist in the chase for Manning, who turns 36 on Saturday and missed all of 2011 because of multiple neck surgeries. ESPN first reported the record-setting quarterback instructed his agent to negotiate the details of a deal with the Broncos, less than two weeks after the Indianapolis Colts released him rather than pay
a $28 million bonus. “I think it’s a great place for him,” Broncos defensive end Robert Ayers said outside the Broncos’ complex. “I don’t think he made a bad decision. I think he made a great decision. Hopefully we can prove him right and hopefully we can win a lot of games here.” Despite being sidelined all of last season, Manning’s success in the past — the Colts averaged a 12-4 record from 2001-10 — made him by far this offseason’s top potential signing and perhaps the most desired free agent ever. He was wooed to Denver by Hall of Fame quarterback Elway, who led the Broncos to two Super Bowl championships and now serves as their vice president of football operations. Elway, who retired from the game after winning his second straight title in 1999, never sounded all that convinced Tebow was the answer at the sport’s most important position and now could trade the enormously popular but flawed QB. Tebow energized the Broncos in leading them to the playoffs last season — and has fans all over the country — but his play was erratic. “I wouldn’t say I feel bad for him,” Ayers said. “It’s a business. And I’m pretty sure Tim understands that. ... We wish him luck, no matter what he does. I hope he’s here. He’s a great leader, a great locker room guy.”
SYRIA from page 2 house of an army brigadier general. They then entered a building where they were chased by security forces. It was not clear whether the general was hurt, he said. The state-run SANA news agency gave a different version of events, saying the fighting broke out when security forces stormed an apartment used as a hideout by an “armed terrorist” group in the Mazzeh neighborhood. The report said two gunmen were killed and a third was arrested while a member of the security forces was killed. Due to restrictions on journalists in Syria, it was impossible to reconcile the two accounts. Since the start of the uprising against President Bashar Assad, the regime has referred to its opponents as terrorists and insisted the revolt is driven by a foreign conspiracy, not popular will. The uprising began with mostly peaceful protests against the government, inspired by the Arab Spring uprisings across the region. But the regime cracked down violently, opening fire on demonstrations and
rounding up thousands of protesters. Russia, a key Assad ally, said the Syrian government and rebels should halt their fighting once a day to give the Red Cross access to the wounded. The call came after Russian officials met with the International Committee of the Red Cross, which had urged Moscow to take such a stand. Russia had previously backed the ICRC’s call for a cease-fire, but Monday’s statement from the Foreign Ministry was worded more strongly than previous ones in an apparent signal that Moscow is raising the pressure on Syria. A resident of the Mazzeh district of western Damascus said Monday’s two-hour clash began with an exchange of fire from automatic rifles and machine guns, and ended about 4 a.m. local time. “We also heard three strong explosions,” said the man, who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of government reprisal. He added that the clash was close to the Swiss Embassy and the home of Maj. Gen. Assef Shawkat, the deputy chief of staff for security affairs, who is married to Assad’s sister.

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Everything cannot be important to you at once, although it may feel that way as this new season opens before you. There’s a wonderful sense of urgency to your mood. You want to know, do and be “it all.” SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). In some way, you’ll feel like a professional basketball player stepping up to the free-throw line. The pressure is on, but it’s also your chance to be a star and save the day. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your concern about social standing is well founded. Image is important, and so is reputation. You’ll be deciding how you want to be perceived in the new season and making fresh decisions. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll love the particular brand of distraction that seeks you out today. You may decide that it’s not a diversion at all, but rather a delightful bit of meaning that’s been purposefully put in your path. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A little plan might fall through, but the big picture is still intact. In some way, the pressure is off of you now. This is your chance to make a new deal. Above all, you have hope. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 20). Believing impossible things takes practice. You’re just the kind of dreamer who will practice often, and your belief will bring about miraculous results. Your harmonious personal life makes it possible for you to give quality attention to your work. You’ll excel and be promoted. Moves and renovations happen in May. Virgo and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 50, 23, 41 and 39.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You have the sense that the world is full of promise and that you’re just the one to make good. It’s as though the sky was painted for you alone and the angels are awaiting your orders. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You have a clear intention for the day and a stellar sense of direction to help you head toward it. You’re also willing to change your tactics or jump onto a different path whenever necessary. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re constantly learning and growing, and sometimes you just want to stop and take stock of where you are. Love helps you do this. Having someone to talk to and share special moments with will help you to realize your many blessings. CANCER (June 22-July 22). The imbalance in your life will be set right. You’re realizing more and more that just because things aren’t quite the way you want them to be doesn’t mean they are not perfect in the grand scheme. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Sometimes you talk off of the top of your head, and it doesn’t come out the way you want it to. People hear your heart, though, and it’s in the right place. So anything you say that’s a little off won’t count for much. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There’s much to gain from keeping up with loved ones. They may vent about topics that are irrelevant to you, and yet you can appreciate the fact that others have different priorities and interests. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re going into a new season, but you won’t forget your heritage. You’ll attract good fortune as you pay homage to the ghosts who have inspired the person you are today.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Tuesday, March 20, the 80th day of 2012. There are 286 days left in the year. Spring arrives at 1:14 a.m. Eastern time. Today’s Highlight in History: On March 20, 1912, a coal mine explosion in McCurtain, Okla., claimed the lives of 73 workers. On this date: In 1413, England’s King Henry IV died; he was succeeded by Henry V. In 1727, physicist, mathematician and astronomer Sir Isaac Newton died in London. In 1815, Napoleon Bonaparte returned to Paris after escaping his exile on Elba, beginning his “Hundred Days” rule. In 1852, Harriet Beecher Stowe’s influential novel about slavery, “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” was first published in book form after being serialized. In 1933, the state of Florida executed Giuseppe Zangara for the shooting death of Chicago Mayor Anton J. Cermak at a Miami event attended by President-elect Franklin D. Roosevelt, the presumed target. In 1952, the U.S. Senate ratified, 66-10, the Treaty of Peace with Japan. At the Academy Awards, “An American in Paris” was named best picture of 1951; Humphrey Bogart best actor for “The African Queen”; Vivien Leigh best actress for “A Streetcar Named Desire”; and George Stevens best director for “A Place in the Sun.” In 1969, John Lennon married Yoko Ono in Gibraltar. In 1977, voters in Paris chose former French Prime Minister Jacques Chirac to be the French capital’s first mayor in more than a century. In 1985, Libby Riddles of Teller, Ala., became the first woman to win the Iditarod Trail Dog Sled Race. In 1987, the Food and Drug Administration approved the sale of AZT, a drug shown to prolong the lives of some AIDS patients. In 1995, in Tokyo, 12 people were killed, more than 5,500 others sickened when packages containing the poisonous gas sarin were leaked on five separate subway trains by Aum Shinrikyo (ohm shin-ree-kyoh) cult members. In 1999, Bertrand Piccard of Switzerland and Brian Jones of Britain became the first aviators to fly a hot-air balloon around the world nonstop. One year ago: As Japanese officials reported progress in their battle to gain control over a leaking, tsunami-stricken nuclear complex, the discovery of more radiation-tainted vegetables and tap water added to public fears about contaminated food and drink. Today’s Birthdays: Producer-director-comedian Carl Reiner is 90. Actor Hal Linden is 81. Country singer Don Edwards is 73. TV producer Paul Junger Witt is 69. Country singer-musician Ranger Doug is 66. Hockey Hall-of-Famer Bobby Orr is 64. Blues singer-musician Marcia Ball is 63. Actor William Hurt is 62. Rock musician Carl Palmer is 62. Rock musician Jimmie Vaughan is 61. Actress Amy Aquino is 55. Movie director Spike Lee is 55. Actress Theresa Russell is 55. Actress Holly Hunter is 54. Rock musician Slim Jim Phantom is 51. Actress-model-designer Kathy Ireland is 49. Actress Liza Snyder is 44. Actor Michael Rapaport is 42. Actor Alexander Chaplin is 41. Rock singer Chester Bennington (Linkin Park) is 36.

Dear Annie: My wife of three years always seems to have something derogatory to say about “Janie,” my 20-year-old daughter from my first marriage. If Janie vacuums, my wife says she didn’t do it right. If she has a half-filled garbage can, my wife tells her it needs to be emptied, etc. I am so tired of the nitpicking, but I don’t know what to do. My wife and I have a toddler girl and a 7-month-old boy, and I love them more than anything. But don’t you think she should mind her own business about my older daughter? -On the Edge in Pittsburgh Dear Edge: To some extent, yes. Janie is a member of the household and should do her chores. However, your wife needs to find better ways to handle Janie, or she will create resentment all around. Please don’t simmer silently. Talk to your wife so she understands how much this bothers you. See a counselor who specializes in blended families. And contact the National Stepfamily Resource Center (stepfamilies.info) for help. Dear Annie: We are volunteers at an educational center that teaches English, provides tutoring and offers social services to minorities. The problem is our supervisor. He is constantly rude and sharp with the volunteers, as well as with prospective financial donors who could help support the program. When we bring this to his attention, he will take some responsibility in the moment, but he proceeds the next day as if the conversation never took place. Over the past seven years, his behavior has gotten worse. I know he received some counseling in the past, but there has been no improvement. We have watched him bark orders at the paid staff, and he seldom uses “please” or “thank you” with anyone. He speaks poorly of others and disregards any suggestions made to him. He takes advantage of the volunteers by asking them to do personal favors, and he once asked
a volunteer to loan him money. He reports to a board where he has formed a couple of friendships that are more personal than professional, and they aren’t inclined to do anything. How do we handle this? We don’t want to quit, although a couple of valuable people have left and it has had a huge impact. We have put a lot of time and energy into this program and have formed relationships with the students. We don’t want to shortchange them because of this supervisor. Any suggestions? -- Feeling Stepped On Dear Stepped On: Asking for personal favors and loans is completely inappropriate and should be reported. However, if continuous attempts to get the supervisor to change his ways have failed and the board will not intervene, your choice is to put up with this behavior or leave. Some people would interpret the supervisor’s personality as more brusque than bullying and would ignore most of it. In fact, you might even be able to correct him at the time, as long as you use tolerant humor. If you opt to stay, this is the tack we would recommend. Dear Annie: Your advice to “Not a Mommy” was spot on. I, too, have never wanted kids. When asked to hold a baby, I reply, “Thanks. I can see it from here.” Older women used to ask, “Who will care for you when you’re old?” But where are those adult children now? Living across the country with families of their own? It makes no sense to have a child to support you in your old age, to save your marriage or to please your husband, parents or society. One of the first things I told my fiance was that if he wanted kids, he needed to move on. We’ve been married 28 years. A woman shouldn’t feel bad because she is not mother material. Children are better off with someone who will cherish them. -- Not Mother Material

VA Medical Center radiology office expanding hours beginning in April MANCHESTER — In April 2012 the Diagnostic Imaging Department at the VA Medical Center will begin extending their outpatient hours for General Radiology services to 8 p.m. In the past the department has only been open until 5:30 p.m. This extension comes as a direct result of the Veteran’s requests for more availability of services. Veterans will now be able to come in and get General Radiology exams without needing to take time out of their work schedule. This includes general Radiology exams such as; chest, spine, abdominal, upper and lower extremity x-rays and Bone Densitometry scans. These new hours will also allow the veterans to call and schedule their pending Radiology exams in Ultrasound, CAT Scan and Fluoroscopy after they get out of work. Any questions on the new outpatient hours or the availability of services should be referred to the Diagnostic Imaging Department toll free at 1-800892-8384 ext 6291 or 603-624-4366 ext 6291.
