LACONIA — City Prosecutor Jim Sawyer said his office will drop the most serious charge against the man who allegedly threatened some youths with a broken BB pistol who he said had bullied his young son on a school playground. Ray Ellis, 50, of 4 Wallace Court is still facing one B-level misdemeanor charge of criminal threatening and a simple assault violation. He is free on $2,500 cash bail and must wear an ankle monitoring bracelet. A person convicted of a B misdemeanor can be sentenced to jail. Sawyer said that while his office had agreed not to prosecute the felony charge, he cannot speak for the Belknap County District Attorney’s see BB GUn page 6

County raises coming after unions agree to insurance concessions By rOGer aMsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — The Belknap County Delegation approved a $30.732-million budget 2012 budget last night which reduces county spending by $1.4-million from the $32.158-million authorized last year. The vote on the budget came after the impact of a new collective bargaining agreement, which reduces the budget by $363,650, was factored into the final count. Ed Philpot, chairman of the Belknap County Commission, opened last night’s meeting by Fuel Oil OIL & PROPANE CO., INC. announcing that com10 day cash price* Laconia 524-1421 subject to change missioners had reached

an agreement earlier in the day with three labor unions, the Sheriff’s Department, the Nursing Home and the Corrections Department, all of which are represented by the State Employees Association. The new contracts provide a two percent cost of living increase and so-called “step” increases, which are now performance based, which could amount to as much as 3-percent, but also change health insurance plans in a major way, resulting in a savings of at least $167,158 in this year’s budget. Those changes eliminate the so-called “point of service” insurance plan and increase employee costs by doubling copays and increasing prescription co-pays. Philpot said that the commissioners

would sign the contracts, most likely today, and said that there was a tradeoff in that the pay increases needed to be approved in order for the employees to agree to the health insurance cost changes, which come in the wake of a proposed 38-percent increase in premiums. Some members of the delegation demurred, with Rep. Colette Worsman of Meredith saying that the numbers on the budget sheet didn’t reflect the changes which the newly agreed upon contract would produce and that delegation members would be derelict in their duty if they approved a budget without the most recent numbers. Philpot said that the contracts had only see COUnTy page 10

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire state representative has dropped his gun on the floor of a state building while preparing to attend a hearing by a committee that deals with public safety. A fellow committee member says Northwood Republican Rep. Kyle Tasker dropped the gun in the legislative office building on Tuesday before attending a meeting of the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety committee. Sanbornton Republican Rep. Dennis Fields says he saw it. It’s unknown if the gun was loaded. Carrying a firearm isn’t illegal in the Statehouse complex after the Republican Legislature lifted a ban last year. Tasker listed firearm law reform as one of his priorities in the legislator handbook. He hasn’t returned phone calls seeking comment.

7.4-magnitude quake rattles southern Mexico MEXICO CITY (AP) — A strong 7.4-magnitude earthquake hit southern Mexico on Tuesday, damaging some 800 homes near the epicenter and swaying tall buildings and spreading fear and panic hundreds of miles away in the capital of Mexico City. One of the strongest to shake Mexico since the deadly 1985 temblor that killed thousands in Mexico City, Tuesday’s earthquake hit hardest in border area of southern Oaxaca and Guerrero states, where

Guerrero official confirmed that some 800 homes had been damaged, with another 60 having collapsed. Hours after the shaking at noon local time (18:06 GMT), there were still no reports of death or serious injury, even after a less powerful, magnitude-5.1 aftershock was felt in the capital and several other aftershocks near the epicenter in a mountainous rural region. “It was very strong, very substantial,”

said Campos Benitez, hospital director in Ometepec, about 15 miles (25 kilometers) from the epicenter. Guerrero Gov. Angel Aguirre, who is from Ometepec, was headed there to survey the damage and ordered emergency crews and civil protection to the area to help with the damage. The state did not say how many were displaced. In Mexico City, frightened workers and see QUAKE page 9

TOULOUSE, France (AP) — Police searched southern France on Tuesday for an expert gunman suspected of fatally shooting seven people in the head at close range in attacks that may have been motivated by neo-Nazi ties or grudges against minorities. The shooter is suspected of carrying out three deadly attacks: leaving four people dead on Monday at a Jewish school in Toulouse, three of them young children; kill-

ing two French paratroopers and seriously wounding another last Thursday in nearby Montauban; and fatally shooting another paratrooper in Toulouse on March 11. All the victims in the school attack were Jewish with duel French-Israeli citizenship, and the paratroopers were of North African or French Caribbean origin. The shots were fired at such close range that the gunfire burned the skin, prosecutor Francois Molins said Tuesday.

“We are confronted with an individual extremely determined in his actions, an armed individual who acts always with the same modus operandi,” he said, “in cold blood ... with premeditated actions.” He added the crimes appear to be premeditated due to the killer’s “choices of victims and the choices of his targets” — the army, the foreign origin of the victims or their religion. see TOULOUSE page 7

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — An unarmed black teenager shot to death by a neighborhood watch captain told his girlfriend moments before he was killed that he was being followed, a lawyer said Tuesday as federal and state prosecutors announced they would investigate. “’Oh he’s right behind me, he’s right

behind me again,’” 17-year-old Trayvon Martin told his girlfriend on his cellphone, the Martin family’s attorney said. The girl later heard Martin say, “Why are you following me?” Another man asked, “What are you doing around here?’” attorney Benjamin Crump said. The phone call that recorded Martin’s

final moments was disclosed as the U.S. Justice Department opened a federal civil rights probe into the Feb. 26 shooting and the local prosecutor convened a grand jury to investigate. A grand jury will meet April 10 to consider evidence in the case, said Seminole County State Attorney Norm Wolfinger. see WATCH page 9

Expensive care that hurts patients The biggest challenge for fixing American health care isn’t finding more money. It’s learning not to spend money on the wrong things. The solution, conservatives say, is simple: Have patients bear more of the costs now being covered by private or government insurers. The concept has merit, except for this: How on earth can we mortals know we don’t need something when the god wearing the stethoscope says we do? Guidelines are needed, and this is a job for government working with medical experts. To advance the process, here are examples of some low-hanging fruit of waste, ripped from the news: — Obesity surgery for teenagers. The New York Times reported on a 17-year-old — 5 feet tall and 271 pounds — who could have lost her excess weight through diet and exercise but didn’t try very hard. So a New York state program for low-income people paid $21,369 for an operation whereby a surgeon placed a silicon band around her stomach to curb feelings of hunger. After losing only 34 pounds, the girl began again downing chips and chocolate with abandon. She was almost back to where she started. Psychological factors often underlie serious weight problems. Until obese young people — who have time on their side — deal with the emotional part, subjecting them to surgery is cruel and a crying waste of money. — MRIs for athletes with minor pains. MRIs can detect tumors and help doctors confirm their suspicions. But they also find “problems” that, while best ignored, nonetheless provide a pretext for expensive medical intervention. As an experiment, Dr. James Andrews, a sports medicine orthopedist in Gulf Breeze, Fla., did MRI scans on 31 fit and happy professional baseball pitchers. He found abnormal shoulder cartilage in 90-percent of the athletes. Based on the scans, he could have operated on nine out of 10 of them — totally unnecessarily. Insurers pay over $1,000 for an MRI scan. The operation to fix the insignificant problems highlighted costs a lot more.

— Regular bone density tests for all women over 65. By the time women hit age 65, bone loss leading to osteoporosis progresses very slowly. If their bone density is found to be normal for their age, they don’t need bone density tests every two years, which Medicare covers, according to The New England Journal of Medicine. And when all this testing finds only mildly lower bone densities, the women are often overprescribed bisphosphonates, such as Fosamax. Bisphosphonates can cause rare but gruesome side effects. They make far more sense for older women with osteoporosis. — Stents for patients with stable heart pain. Patients showing symptoms of a heart attack often undergo angioplasty, involving the insertion of a metal tube called a stent. But about one in eight angioplasties are done on patients with stable angina who are showing only minor chest pain, according to an article in The Journal of the American Medical Association. For these patients, another study showed, stents didn’t do any more good than oral medications — and the operations themselves pose some risk. One doctor in Maryland reportedly extracted $3.8-million from Medicare for implanting nearly 600 medically unnecessary stents. I almost forgot to mention double CT scans, whereby hospitals administer two computerized tomography scans to a patient in the course of a single day. CT scans are both expensive and expose patients to high levels of radiation. Medicare pays whatever. A hospital in Tulsa, Okla., was found to have doublescanned 80-percent of its Medicare chest patients in 2008. Note that the above examples involved not only wasted money but subjected patients to potentially harmful “treatments.” Want to curb medical spending? We’ve hardly scratched the surface.

LETTER It is reassuring to see growing support for Year-Round Library To the editor, On behalf of the Gilmanton YearRound Library, its board of directors, staff and volunteers, I want to thank all the voters who supported the library at Town Meeting. It is reassuring to see that each year support grows. We will continue to offer quality

service to all residents and welcome new ideas as to how we can continue to serve the community of Gilmanton. Again, thank you for your continued support. Anne Kirby, President Gilmanton Year-Round Library Association

LETTERS Our president has noting to do with increase in oil production To the editor, In my very humble opinion, the biggest increase in man-made global warming of the past week came from the lungs of President Obama. In recent years, he ridiculed the Republicans for their “drill baby drill” stance. Then this week he exclaims to all his worshipers that “under my administration, America is producing more oil today than at any time in the last eight years”. Yes, that is a correct statement. However, in only the best liberal “smokescreen talk method” can our leader take credit for this. It is actually in spite of him rather than because of him. Audaciously, oxymoronically and arrogantly, President Obama takes credit for this increase in oil production. The real truth is that drilling has “decreased on federal lands” and the overall slight increase is due to permits that where issued under the Clinton and Bush administrations. Democrats have systematically

squashed efforts to increase oil drilling because they think oil is evil. Despite his bodacious, bombastic bloviating, our president has nothing at all to do with any increase in oil production. A charismatic, handsome orator can be a wonderful community organizer. However, with revealing clarity, his deceptive speech making, class warfare rhetoric and fiscal mismanagement have caused a dramatic loss of faith and trust in many of the citizens who voted for hope and change last time. Given his dearth of leadership skills, disastrous inexperience and thriving alternative media sites capable of unraveling his political spin, it is hard to imagine he will be able to regain much of that faith and trust. Perhaps there is hope that he won’t be able to “fundamentally transform” this wonderfully unique republic into a socialist, entrepreneur crushing, “unexceptional” country. Russ Wiles Tilton

I’m looking forward to see what Ms. Fountain’s students do next To the editor, I want to compliment all the Belmont High School students and their talented teacher, Lauren Fountain, who participated in the “Cabaret” performance that was held on March 7. The full title of this show was “Cabaret 2012 – Music Through the Decades” and it truly was a show that included music from many eras and musical genres. From a spirited “fife and drum” performance to start the show, to solo and group instrumental numbers, jazz, a fantastic doo-wop a cappella troupe, show-tunes, musical comedy numbers, country, swing, classic rock, modern rock, rap, electronic funk and hard rock performances the musicians and singers did an exceptional job and kept the audience fully engaged and entertained throughout. Special kudos to the several students who added their own original compositions to the mix and performed them skillfully and to enthusiastic applause. The show was entertaining throughout and was enhanced by the outstanding emcee work of Cawlin Clough and Tuckerman Zeller who were warm and witty throughout the evening. They kept the show flowing smoothly and did a great job announcing and acknowledging all

of the performers. The corny and clean jokes they threw in from time to time kept the audience laughing and entertained between performances. The performers played to a packed house, which was no small feat, considering very little fanfare and the fact that the Belmont-Gilford hockey team was playing at the same time in a very important playoff hockey game leaving fans of both the tough choice of which event to attend. Prior to the show, the audience enjoyed a delicious taco bar with tasty contributions from many volunteers. This was an overall fun-filled family night and a wonderful time was surely had by all. The Shaker Regional School District is incredibly fortunate to have found the multi-talented, energetic and dedicated Ms. Lauren Fountain. She had very big shoes to fill when she came into this position and has done an admirable and exceptional job in doing this and more. My family and I look forward to more first class entertainment from the Shaker Regional School District’s talented musicians and performers. Congratulations to all of the students and staff who worked so hard to put on such an exceptional show! Mike Iacopucci Belmont

LETTERS We’ll remember that day when we could have slowed spending To the editor, Dear Gilford taxpayers: Although my campaign for Gilford Budget Committee was unsuccessful, I want to thank all of those who voted for me. To those 516 people, your faith in me is truly humbling. I really appreciate your support. I urge the thousands of registered voters who did not come to the polls to reassess their priorities before the next town election. We must never forget that many patriots have died in the defense of freedom and our precious right to vote. Every vote counts and those willing to serve need your help. As Gilford taxes creep ever upward, the recession drags on, and our personal finances are strained more and more, we will remember that warm day in March when we could have

applied the brakes to expanding government, yet hit the throttle. I’m sure a lot of us will be pondering this troubling situation in the months ahead. I like to think that it’s never too late to change a flawed course, but the farther down that wrong road we go, the longer and more arduous the trip back. Let’s not go too far down that road before we turn around. Hold those in authority accountable! Although none of us know the future, you may have another opportunity the fill in that funny little box with “Savage” printed next to it. I hope I can again have your vote for creative and efficient government, lower costs, and greater accountability. We, the people, can make that happen! Stuart Savage Gilford

NH Constitution prohibits attorneys from impeachment process To the editor, I asked and was told that impeachments are no longer undertaken because of the cost, the cost being in the range of two million dollars and the main part of the cost comes from the charges that are run up by the attorneys who had been retained to do the work. My point is, that the New Hampshire Constitution, if followed, prohibits attorneys from having any role in an impeachment. Rule One: The New Hampshire Constitution provides that impeachments are handled by the Legislature, and the Legislature only. The New Hampshire Constitution does not list any role of any kind for the Executive Branch. Since the attorney general is appointed by the governor, that makes the attorney general part of the Executive Branch, and in turn that bars the attorney general from having any role in an impeachment. Rule Two: The role of the Judicial Branch is to conduct jury trials. Juries are selected to hear charges that include imprisonment, or fines, or in civil cases, the loss of money, and for no other reasons. Constitutionally the only role of a court is to conduct jury trials, and appeals to the verdicts of jury trials. Therefore, there is nothing in an impeachment that a court, or a jury or any person who is an officer of a court, would be involved with. Rule Three: There are no penalties in an impeachment, There are no fines, there is no imprisonment, or loss of freedom. Juries, however, are

specifically charged with handling charges resulting in a loss of freedom or a loss of money. Rule Four: Therefore the N.H. Constitution bars the Judicial Branch, or any member thereof, (other than the chief justice “conducting” the hearing in an impeachment of the governor) from doing anything in an impeachment. Rule Five: Attorneys are “Officers of the Court” and since they are “Officers of the Court”, they are under the discipline of the courts (Ref. Black’s Law Dictionary) and are also are barred from taking any action of any kind, in an impeachment. Rule Six: Article 7 Part II of the New Hampshire Constitution states. “No member of the General Court shall take fees, be of counsel,or act as an advocate in any cause before either branch of the Legislature; and upon due proof thereof , such member shall forfeit his seat in the legislature.” (from September 5, 1792) Therefore any and all Representatives who are also attorneys must recuse themselves from all proceedings relating to an impeachment. (In the event a bill comes up that has any relationship to an impeachment, then speaker (and attorney) William O’Brien must turn the gavel over to Deputy Speaker Pam Tucker and absent himself from the premises. Conclusion: only the Legislature, and the Legislature only, is to be involved in an impeachment. Rep. Robert Kingsbury Laconia (Belknap District 4)

Attention deficit is a disorder of the parent or teacher, not child To the editor, Attention deficit disorder is grossly misunderstood. It IS NOT a disorder of the child, only a disorder of the parent, or teacher. It also applies between married couples, but usually that is a learned response, to tune out nonsense repetitions and useless complaints. I learned long ago that so called ATD was really the sign of the most brilliant and active people — too

busy doing too many things at once, yet still able to do that. As observed and complained about in children it is ALWAYS a problem of the parent’s or teacher’s non attention to the child! Drug the parent or teacher, NOT the child! Let the child advance beyond the parents and teachers: encourage them to succeed where parents and teachers have failed. Jack Stephenson Gilford

LACONIA — Justice James Barry of Belknap County Superior Court yesterday afternoon dismissed a suit brought by Tom Tardif seeking to forestall the appropriation of any funds for pay raises for union employees in the 2012 county budget until collective bargaining agreements are approved by the County Commission and ratified by the union. Following an expedited hearing yesterday morning, Barry issued his order just hours before the Belknap County Convention held a public hearing on the budget, scheduled in anticipation of adopting the budget soon afterwards. Tardif, a former mayor of Laconia, claimed that a closed-door meeting of the Belknap County Commission, together with its “contract negotiating team,” and the convention held last week violated the “Right-to-Know” law (RSA 91-A). He claimed that the “contract negotiating team” is an advisory committee created by the county commission and subject to the Rightto-Know law while allowing that the “contract negotiating team” and union negotiators are exempt from the law at the request of one or the other. The commissioners included an appropriation of $251,000, a two-percent cost of living adjustment (COLA) and “step” pay raises for both union and non-union employees in their proposed 2012 budget. Although the convention must approve these appropriations, Tardif insisted it cannot discuss them in a closed meeting. Nor, he continued, since the convention has no authority over collective bargaining agreements, can it meet behind BB GUN from page one Office. He reminded the court that Ellis’s alleged victim is under 13-yearold and Ellis allegedly threatened the boy while both were on school property. “In the state’s mind, these are serious offenses,” Sawyer said, telling the Judge Jim Carroll he would be somewhat flexible on bail conditions but still wanted some cash and some supervision. In court yesterday with his wife, two sons and a second man, Ellis, dressed in a tailored suit stood ramrod straight next to his attorney, Phil McLaughlin, who argued some of the conditions of his continued bail. Most significantly, McLaughlin wanted to free Ellis from reporting daily at noon to the Police Department. He explained to Carroll that the day before the alleged incident, March 9, 2012, Ellis has been in the hospital for some type of cardiac treatment and was discharged with some medical restrictions and prescription medication that impacts Ellis’s ability to drive. McLaughlin successfully argued that asking Ellis to get a ride to the police station daily was burdensome and Carroll ruled he no longer had to report daily before noon. As to the ankle bracelet, Carroll withheld his ruling.

closed doors with the “contract negotiating team.” “The only reasonable purpose of such a meeting, Tardif claimed, could be “to sway or convince a majority of the delegation (convention) 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.” Furthermore, he held that the closed 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. Representing the county, attorney Paul Fitzgerald cited the exemption in the Right-to-Know law, for “strategy or negotiation with respect to collective bargaining.” Barry made short shrift of Tardif’s arguments. He noted that while he expedited the hearing and interrupted a criminal trial, Tardif “presented no evidence but simply made assertions of fact and quoted statutory and case law.” Barry found that because Tardif did not dispute that the “contract negotiating team” met in private with the commission and the convention to discuss prospective collective bargaining agreements, the meeting qualified for the exemption and complied with the statute. Likewise, he remarked that during the hearing Tardif’s “real concern appeared to be an inability to learn of certain line-items appropriations,” a concern he deemed “speculative.”

McLaughlin said the primary reason his client didn’t want to wear the ankle monitor was because it means he is in the legal custody of the Belknap County Jail and only a physician from the jail can prescribe medications for his client. “The existence of the bracelet causes an impediment (to Ellis’s health),” McLaughlin argued. He told Carroll the medications prescribed by the county and those prescribed by Ellis’ primary care physician are not the same although he noted for the record that in the past few days the county’s doctor has been in “better communication” with his client’s own doctor. Carroll ruled that for now Ellis will continue to wear the ankle monitor. However, should the two doctors in questions not continue to cooperate about Ellis’s medication, he said he would hold an emergency hearing to re-evaluate McLaughlin’s request.

Recount doesn’t change outcome of SB-2 vote BELMONT — A recount of the ballots cast on March 9 for the adoption of SB-2 or the Official Budget Act within the Shaker Regional School District yielded the same results — the initiative failed by 27 votes. According to School Board Chair Pret Tuthill, at least 10 district voters filed a written petition for a recount, which was held in the Belmont Middle School last night. Tuthill said 564 votes were cast and each was hand-counted for a second time. He said 60-percent of those who

voted need to support the measure in order for it to pass. While the number of votes remained the same — 312 voted yes and 252 voted no — apparently there was some question about the number of votes the measure needed to pass. Tuthill said the measure needed 339 votes and it failed by 27. Last Friday night, the moderator announced that it needed 344 votes to pass. Either way, it failed. — Gail Ober

Interior Minister Claude Gueant described the suspect as “someone very cold, very determined, very much a master of his movements, and by consequence, very cruel.” However, his suggestion that the attacker was wearing a camera around his neck that could be used to film and post video online was described by the prosecutor as “a hypothesis.” Norway’s Anders Behring Breivik, the right-wing extremist who killed 77 people in a rampage last year, had suggested in an online manifesto before the killings that a camera could be used to film such “operations.” There was no mention in his indictment that he used one. On Tuesday night, the school attack victims were being flown to Israel for burial there, accompanied by French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe. A funeral service is being held Wednesday in Montauban for the paratroopers. All three attacks — which also left a paratrooper and a teenage boy seriously wounded — were carried out by a man on a powerful Yamaha motorcycle who was wearing a helmet and carrying a Colt 45, Molins told reporters in Paris. But he said other clues to the killer’s identify were scarce. Molins noted that the attacks had occurred every four days, but said he could not address security arrangements that might be in place Friday — the fourth day after the attack on the Jewish school. President Nicolas Sarkozy has raised the terror alert for the southwest region to scarlet, the highest level on the four-color scale that auto-

matically added 14 new units of riot police and gendarmes to the region. Hundreds of extra police will be on duty Wednesday for the funeral services of the three paratroopers and Sarkozy will speak. More than 200 specialized investigators, including psychologists and profilers, are on the case and “no clue will be abandoned or neglected,” Molins said. Hundreds of people have been questioned, but no one has yet been detained and no searches carried out, he added. The manhunt took place as friends and family tearfully mourned the four people slain Monday at a Jewish school in northern Toulouse — a rabbi, his two young sons and a young girl. A “monster” is on the loose in France, Sarkozy declared, vowing to track him down. “There are beings who have no respect for life. When you grab a little girl to put a bullet in her head, without leaving her any chance, you are a monster. An anti-Semitic monster, but first of all a monster,” he said. The focus fell Tuesday on three paratroopers who had been expelled from their regiment near Toulouse in 2008 for neo-Nazi sympathies, a police official said. The prosecutor said that track was among those being studied. Investigators also are checking the hypothesis that the killer could be a former soldier with psychological issues or with racist and anti-Semitic motives. The killer has shown he can handle large-caliber guns with expertise, leading some to suspect he had a military or police background. France was reeling Tuesday after the school attack, the deadliest school see next page

Arts & Humanities Council Program Nineteenth Century American Popular Music Monday,

March 26 at 7pm

presented by Eric Bye

“American music has much to do with our identity. More than just entertainment; music is connected with social conditions, emerging from the sea, from cotton fields, lumber camps, and kitchens. Twentieth century music: blues, country, swing, rock, gospel, folk all emerged from earlier forms such as hymns, minstrel tunes, sea chanteys, voyageur tunes, ragtime, and patriotic songs from the Civil War. Come hear history played live on the banjo and mandolin.” Mr. Bye is a book translator from French, Spanish and German into English. He also has played, collected, and restored old five-string banjos since 1975. His musical interests include fretless banjos, tunes dating back to plantation days, and all types of traditional music: work songs, string and brass band music, and banjo orchestras. His program promises to be both educational and fun.

STATE SCHOOL from page one ings and five accessory structures. The other two lots, a 7.5-acre parcel at the junction of Meredith Center Road and Lane Road and a 10.4-acre parcel bounded by North Main Street and Old North Main Street, are both vacant. Last year, the Legislature directed the Department of Administrative Services (DAS) to offer the 200-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. However, a recent 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. Senator Chuck Morse (R-Salem), chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, told the group that “the state really wants to divorce itself from this land, to not write any more checks. We don’t have the money to maintain the property,” he continued, “but we’d like to see it preserved and we want you to have it.” Morse acknowledged the property is “not worth $10-million,” indicating that the state would entertain an offer from the city. Mike Connor of DAS, who is managing the transfer of the property, indicated that he understood Morse to say “there is room for discussion.” City Councilor Matt Lahey (Ward 2), who chaired a commission convened by the Legislature to consider the future of the site, assured the group that “we’re going to make a pitch to buy that property.” Likewise, City Councilor Bob Hamel (Ward 5) described the appraised value as “a very reasonable price” and looked forward to reaching an arrangement with the state. In 2010, Credere Associates, LLC of Westbrook, Maine completed a Phase I environmental assessment of the property, which identified likely risks to the natural environment and human health primarily in and around the buildings. Credere found that soil and groundwater have been contaminated by petroleum and other hazardous materials from leaking storage tanks, floor drains and waste disposal at several locations. Moreover, there are indications that the same contaminants, along with PCBs, pesticides, insecticides and coal ash, may have reached soil and groundwater at another half dozen places.

Records shows that sewer treatment on the property included a chlorination plant with associated sludge beds. Furthermore, the age and condition of the buildings suggest that asbestos, lead paint, mold and PCBs are likely present in many of them. Without a Phase II assessment, which will begin shortly with funding from the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the extent of the contamination and cost of addressing cannot be estimated. However, Rip Patten from Credere anticipated that conditions would not be out of the ordinary in light of the age and uses of the property and buildings. Steve Duprey of Concord, a developer, said flatly that “no developer would have any interest in the property until they’re assured it is all cleaned up.” Dismissing the Legislature’s $10-million price tag, he said that “it’s not even worth $2-million.” He suggested the state should “get rid of it for $1,” but cautioned that the city would be assuming a liability of between $1-million and $5-million.” Dick Christopher, a lifelong resident who observed the proceedings, spoke for many when he called the prospect of the city acquiring the property “a golden opportunity.” There was much less agreement about how to redevelop the site. Echoing the division of opinion that emerged at the earlier public meetings two years ago, one group favored siting an educational institution, perhaps a satellite of the Lakes Region Community College, on part of the property and devoting the rest to recreation and farming. Others preferred redevelopment that would foster professional employment and expand the tax base. Lahey pointed out that any public educational institution would require funding from the state, which has already made a significant investment at the Lakes Region Community College. Noting the Legislature has significantly reduced funding for the both the university and community college systems, he called the prospect of an educational institution on the site “a pipedream.” Ed Engler, editor and publisher of The Laconia Daily Sun, highlighted the inconsistency between the city purchasing the property from the state only to make it home to a state educational institution. Engler stressed that “this is not just any piece if land, not any 200 acres, but a very special property.” He said that its redevelopment could have a “transformative impact” on the city. In particular, he suggested that the development of the property could

contribute to reversing what he described as an “unsustainable” demographic trend marked by an aging population and declining school enrollment by “bring people here who don’t live here now.” Karen Barker, a strong advocate of using at least half the site for farming, met Engler’s recommendation of attracting a corporate headquarters to the property, by insisting “we must protect the agricultural soils whatever we do with that property.” She said that agriculture required little investment, was “a growth industry and did not preclude other uses while contemporary farmers were “well-educated young people.” City Councilor Henry Lipman (Ward 3) interjected that debating future uses was “putting the cart before the horse.” The immediate question, he said, is “can we reach a negotiated price with the state.” “Sometime property is not developable,” Duprey declared. He said that vacancy rates of more than 20-percent were common in the commercial real estate market and were depressing rents in occupied properties. “Negotiate a price, by the property, clean it up and button it up,” he recommended. “Take a pause. You could go 20 years,” he advised, implying that market conditions would determine the pace and direction of redevelopment. There was little or no support for using the property for retail stores or housing. from preceding page shooting in the country and the bloodiest attack on Jewish targets in decades. Schools across the country — and French schools around the world — held a moment of silence Tuesday to honor the victims. The French Football Federation said that a minute of silence in memory of the victims was being observed before each match in the French Cup quarterfinals on Tuesday and Wednesday night. In Monday’s shooting, the attacker first gunned down a rabbi and his two young sons, then chased down the daughter of the school principal, shooting her dead at point-blank range. Reports of the children’s ages varied, with the Israeli Embassy saying Tuesday the boys were 3 and 5 and the girl was 8. At the site of the second paratrooper killing, police found the charger for the gun used in all three attacks, but discovered no fingerprints or DNA on it, a police official said. Police are studying the online communications by the first paratrooper killed. He was shot March 11 after posting an announcement online to sell his motorcycle, the police official said, and investigators believe the gunman responded to the ad and lured the paratrooper into an isolated place to kill him. Behavioral analysts are helping with the investigation, the police official said, and comparing the actions of the suspected perpetrator to those of serial killers and to those such as Norway’s Breivik. Wails and weeping filled the air Tuesday as the school honored the victims, including the rabbi who taught there. Several young men pressed their heads against the rear window of a hearse in grief as it drove away. The rabbi’s widow covered her face and held her remaining child, a 1-yearold daughter, dressed in a bright pink dress. The widow’s uncle, Marc Alloul, described how the girl woke up in the middle of the night after the killings, calling out, “Papa! Papa!”

QUAKE from page 2 residents poured into the streets of the capital. Telephone service was down in the city and throughout the area where the quake was felt and some neighborhoods were without power, according to Mexico City Mayor Marcelo Ebrard, who set up a hotline for people to report damage. A pedestrian bridge collapsed on an empty transit bus. About 40 passengers were stranded for a short time on the Mexico City airport air train, but later released. The airport closed for a time but officials said there was no runway damage and they resumed operations. Samantha Rodriguez, a 37-year old environmental consultant, was evacuated from the 11th floor on the Angel

Tower office building. “I thought it was going to pass rapidly but the walls began to thunder and we decided to get out,” she said. Mexico City, built on a lakebed, was badly damaged in 1985 when an 8.0 earthquake killed at least 10,000 people. In past years, Guerrero has suffered several severe earthquakes, including a 7.9 in 1957 which killed an estimated 68 people, and a 7.4 in 1995 which left three dead. Tuesday’s quake was the strongest shaking felt in the capital since a magnitude-6.5 earthquake struck also in Guerrero in December. Officials said at least three people died in Guerrero, but there were no reports of widespread damage.

WATCH from page 2 The neighborhood watch captain, George Zimmerman, has not been charged and said he shot Martin, who was returning to a gated community in Sanford after buying candy at a convenience store, in self-defense after Martin attacked him. Police say Zimmerman is white; his family says he is Hispanic. “She absolutely blows Zimmerman’s absurd self-defense claim out of the water,” Crump said of Martin’s girlfriend, whose name was withheld. The case has ignited racial tensions in this Orlando suburb of 53,500 people, sparking rallies and a protest in Gov. Rick Scott’s office on Tuesday. “We are pleased the Department of Justice has heeded our calls and agreed to investigate this outrageous case,” said NAACP President Benjamin Todd Jealous said in a statement on Tuesday. “The rules of justice in this nation have failed when an innocent teenage boy can be shot to death by a vigilante and no arrest is made for weeks.” The Rev. Al Sharpton was expected to join Sanford city leaders at a town hall meeting Tuesday to discuss the investigation. The Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division said it is sending its community relations service this week to Sanford to “address tension in the community.” More than 350 people packed into the wood panelled sanctuary of the Allen Chapel AME Church, located in a traditionally black neighborhood of Sanford. A line flowed down steps with others trying to get in. Residents attending the town hall meeting cheered and jumped to their feet when local NAACP leader Turner Clayton Jr. suggested that the U.S. Department of Justice shouldn’t just review the investigation but it should take over the Sanford Police Department. “This is just the beginning of what is taking place,” Clayton said. “We’re going to make sure justice prevails.” Prior to the meeting, Sandera Duval held up a white sign in the sanctuary that said in simple black letters, “Justice for Trayvon.” “We want justice for Trayvon because this is a senseless crime,” said Duval, 62, a retired nurse. “That could have been my child or my grandchild.”

Crump told reporters Tuesday it was Martin who cried out when a man bearing a 9mm handgun came at him. Police said Zimmerman was bleeding from his nose and the back of his head, and told police he had yelled out for help before he shot Martin. Martin, who was in town from Miami to visit his father in Sanford, called his 16-year-old girlfriend in Miami several times on Feb. 26, including just before the shooting, Crump said. The discovery of the lengthy conversations, including one moments before the shooting, was made over the weekend by Martin’s father by checking his son’s cell phone log, Crump said. The teenager told the girl on his way back from the store he’d taken shelter the rain briefly at an apartment building in his father’s gated community, Crump said. Martin then told the girl he was being followed and would try to lose the person, Crump said. “She says: ‘Run.’ He says, ‘I’m not going to run, I’m just going to walk fast,’” Crump said, quoting the girl. After Martin encountered Zimmerman, the girl thought she heard a scuffle “because his voice changes like something interrupted his speech,” Crump said. The phone call ended before the girl heard gunshots. The last call was at 7:12 p.m. Police arrived at 7:17 p.m. to find Martin lying face down on the ground. Zimmerman was handcuffed after police arrived and taken into custody for questioning, but was released by police without being charged. Police have interviewed Zimmerman two times since then. Crump called the treatment patently unfair and asked if Martin would have received the same treatment if he had been the shooter. “We will not rest until he is arrested. The more time that passes, this is going to be swept under the rug,” Crump said. Crump said he plans to turn over information about the call to federal investigators; a grand jury in Seminole County is also likely to subpoena the records. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is also involved in the state case.

Romney routs Santorum in Illinois primary SCHAUMBURG, Ill. (AP) — Mitt Romney took a major stride toward the Republican presidential nomination Tuesday night, routing Rick Santorum in the Illinois primary for his third big-state win in a row and padding his already-formidable lead in the race for convention delegates. “What a night,” Romney exulted to cheering supporters in suburban Chicago. Looking beyond his GOP rivals, he said he had a simple message for President Barack Obama, the man Republicans hope to defeat next fall: “Enough. We’ve had enough.” Returns from 98 percent of Illinois’ precincts showed Romney gaining 47 percent of the vote compared to 35 percent for Santorum, 9 percent for Ron Paul and 8 percent for a fading Newt Gingrich. That was a far more substantial showing for Romney than the grudging victories he eked out in the previous few weeks in Michigan and Ohio, primaries that did as much to raise questions about his ability to attract Republican support as to quell those questions. Santorum, who hopes to rebound in next Saturday’s Louisiana primary, sounded like anything but a defeated contender as he spoke to supporters in Gettysburg, Pa. He said he had outpolled Romney in downstate Illinois and the areas “that conservatives and Republicans populate. We’re very happy about that and we’re happy about the delegates we’re going to get, too.” “Saddle up, like (Ronald) Reagan did in the cowboy movies,” he urged his backers. Romney triumphed in Illinois after benefitting from a crushing, 7-1 advantage in the television advertising wars, and as his chief rival struggled to overcome self-imposed political wounds in the marathon race to pick an opponent to Obama. Most recently, Santorum backpedaled after saying

on Monday that the economy wasn’t the main issue of the campaign. “Occasionally you say some things where you wish you had a do-over,” he said later. Over the weekend, he was humbled in the Puerto Rico primary after saying that to qualify for statehood the island commonwealth should adopt English as an official language. Initial results showed Romney’s victory was worth at least 41 delegates in Illinois. That gave him 563 in the overall count maintained by The Associated Press, out of 1,144 needed to win the nomination. Santorum has 261 delegates, Gingrich 135 and Paul 50. Exit polls showed Romney preferred by primary goers who said the economy was the top issue in the campaign, and overwhelmingly favored by those who said an ability to defeat Obama was the quality they most wanted in a nominee. He won among votes who said they were somewhat conservative or moderate, while Santorum prevailed among those who said they were “very conservative.” While pre-primary polls taken several days ago in Illinois suggested a close race, Romney and Restore Our future, a super Pac that backs him, unleashed a barrage of campaign ads to erode Santorum’s standing. One ad accused the former Pennsylvania senator of changing his principles while serving in Congress, while two others criticized him for voting to raise the debt limit, raise his own pay as a lawmaker and side with former Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton to support legislation allowing felons the right to vote. In all, Romney and Restore Our Future outspent Santorum and a super PAC that backs him by $3.5 million to $500,000, an advantage of 7-1.

COUNTY from page one been agreed to yesterday afternoon and that there was no time to make all of the minor changes which would have been needed. He said that the delegation was only being asked to approve the cost items and that the final budget which would be signed by the delegation, the so-called MS-42 form, would include the adjusted numbers. “There will be no surprises,’’ he said. Rep. Peter Bolster of Alton suggested that the delegation might vote to act on the proposed budget reduction and then come back again next week for

a vote on the budget but withdrew his motion after some discussion. Rep. Robert Greemore of Meredith then moved that the delegation approve the contract and the motion carried 14-5, with Guy Comtois of Barnstead, Robert Kingsbury of Laconia, Tyler Simpson of New Hampton, Robert Malone of Alton and Worsman voting against it. Discussion then moved to the budget itself and Worsman said she would like to propose a series of cuts, including one which would have reduced the pay of County Administrator Debra Shackett from $106,721 to $89,164, the same amount as County Attorney Melissa Guldbrandsen makes. That motion failed on a 7-11 vote as did several other attempts by Worsman to cut other budget items. Worsman also questioned the overtime budget in the Sheriff’’s Department and Sheriff Craig Wiggin said that there are times when he has no option, as is the case with after-hour transportation to N.H. State (mental) Hospital in Concord, something which his department had to do 267 times last year. When the final vote on the budget came the delegation set the final appropriation total at $30.732-million and the total amount to be raised by taxes at $13.883 million, which is down 1/3 percent from last year.

Most recently, Mark specialized in finished carpentry, with examples of his beautiful work found in homes and buildings throughout the Granite State. He was very active as a ski coach at Waterville Valley Ski Area for several years. Mark is survived by his loving daughters, Sara Ellen

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll come across intriguing news from credible sources and will share it to captivate the interest of your friends, colleagues and loved ones. You’ll like the level of attention you command. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The people in charge can be demanding, stubborn and controlling. Step back and think. You’ll cleverly find a way around the obstacles and difficulties that authority figures present. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have the freedom to believe what you want to believe. It’s a freedom that people have fought and died for, and you’re not about to take it for granted now. You’ll feel grateful for this and for your many other privileges. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You benefit from the input of a partner. Meet with someone you trust to help keep you on track with a project. Lay it out on the table, and determine together whether you’re trying to take on too much or too little. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Timing is everything. With the moon in your sign, you’re in sync with the cosmic clock. The perfect moment to act is when you’re thinking about when the perfect moment to act might be. Translation: now. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 21). You’re so clever. Your intelligent action will net you a new position before April is over. You’ll negotiate an important deal in May. Your personal life thrives on shared fun through June and July. Travel will connect you with the inspiration you need to begin a major project in September. Aquarius and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 2, 55, 29 and 18.


ARIES (March 21-April 19). It’s all about you now. The sun and Mercury in your sign are rooting for you to express yourself and actualize your potential. Family and friends echo the cosmic support. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A seductive character enters your world. There is something terribly engaging about this person, and even though you’re not sure you want to get involved, you’ll be magnetically drawn in. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You offered advice that wasn’t taken. No one wants to hear “I told you so,” especially when it happens to be true. Instead, you’ll offer compassion and a second chance, proving once more that you’re a stellar human being. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your memory is strong and undiscerning. You’ll recall important facts and less useful ones alike. With all the data swimming in your brain, focus requires more effort for you, but at the same time, you’ll be more creative. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You take your uniqueness for granted. You probably don’t even realize that you give people the opportunity to participate in situations they normally wouldn’t be able to access. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You want what you want, and you’re starting to think you might get it, too. Knowing the “why” will bring you closer to your goal -- and by the way, that is far more important than knowing the “how.” LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll get the communication started, fully aware of the difference between a conversation and a monologue. Others, not so much. So you may have to be the one to keep the ball bouncing back and forth.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Wednesday, March 21, the 81st day of 2011. There are 285 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On March 21, 1963, the Alcatraz federal prison island in San Francisco Bay was emptied of its last inmates at the order of Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy. On this date: In 1556, Thomas Cranmer, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, was burned at the stake for heresy. In 1685, composer Johann Sebastian Bach was born in Eisenach, Germany. In 1804, the French civil code, or the “Code Napoleon” as it was later called, was adopted. In 1806, Mexican statesman Benito Juarez was born in the state of Oaxaca (wuh-HAH’-kuh). In 1871, journalist Henry M. Stanley began his famous expedition in Africa to locate the missing Scottish missionary David Livingstone. In 1907, U.S. Marines arrived in Honduras to protect American lives and interests in the wake of political violence. In 1940, a new government was formed in France by Paul Reynaud (ray-NOH’), who became prime minister, succeeding Edouard Daladier (dah-lah-DYAY’). In 1960, about 70 people were killed in Sharpeville, South Africa, when police fired on black protesters. In 1962, the first Taco Bell restaurant was opened by Glen Bell in Downey, Calif. In 1965, more than 3,000 civil rights demonstrators led by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. began their march from Selma to Montgomery, Ala. In 1972, the Supreme Court, in Dunn v. Blumstein, ruled that states may not require at least a year’s residency for voting eligibility. In 1985, police in Langa, South Africa, opened fire on blacks marching to mark the 25th anniversary of Sharpeville; the reported death toll varied between 29 and 43. One year ago: Syrians chanting “No more fear!” held a defiant march after a deadly government crackdown failed to quash three days of mass protests in the southern city of Deraa. Grammy-winning bluesman Pinetop Perkins died in Austin, Texas, at 97. Mayhew “Bo” Foster, a World War II U.S. Army pilot who transported Nazi official Hermann Goering for interrogation in an unarmed, unescorted plane, died in Missoula, Mont. at age 99.

Winni Playhouse presents staged reading for Holocaust Remembrance Day LACONIA — On Saturday, March 24 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, March 25 at 2 p.m., the Winni Players, in conjunction with Temple B’Nai Israel of Laconia, will be producing their 5th annual staged reading to commemorate Holocaust Remembrance Day. This year’s selection will be Hana’s Suitcase by Emil Sher, based on the book by Karen Levine. The play is based on a true story. In 1994, Fumiko Ishioka, museum curator of the Tokyo Holocaust Centre, inspired by the testimonies of Holocaust survivors she met at a conference in Israel, becomes determined to

teach Japanese children of the plight of millions of Jewish children in World War II. From a museum in Auschwitz she acquires a few artifacts: a child’s sock, a shoe, a child’s sweater, a can of Zyclon B poisonous gas and a suitcase with the name “Hana Brady” on it - the first items for her Holocaust exhibit. This sets Fumiko and her students on a journey of discovery to learn as much as they can about Hana and discover whether she even survived the war. This year’s selection for the reading was chosen with children in mind.

“We’ve done some really interesting plays the past few years about the Holocaust which have sparked lively discussions, but the subject matter was not necessarily appropriate for children. This year’s selection was suggested by Rabbi Hannah Orden for the express purpose of presenting a piece that would allow families to come together and share their thoughts and feelings about the Holocaust with each other and other families,” says Bryan Halperin, executive director of the Playhouse. The play is appropriate for ages 11 and up, or slightly younger if the children have some knowledge of the Holocaust and the persecution of Jews during the war. Rabbi Orden will be moderating discussions with the cast

and audience after each performance. Four teens from the Playhouse’s theatre group have featured roles in this production, Adam Messinger, Meg O’Brian, Emily Hanf, and Nate Boutwell. Many other Playhouse regulars will be taking part as well including Chuck Fray, David Bownes, Diane Nickerson, Doreen Sheppard, Dorothy Piquado, Howard Amsden, Jen Bleiler, Jim Rogato, John Piquado, Judi Rogato, Mark Edelstein, Michael Baker, Steve Richmond and Ursula Boutwell. Performances will take place at the Weirs Beach location of the Winnipesaukee Playhouse. Seating is limited so reservations are recommended. Call 603 366 7377. A $5 donation is requested at the door.

LACONIA — The short life and tragic passing of Robbie Mills continues to inspire efforts, like Annual Robbie Mills 8 Ball Tournament, to ensure succeeding generations of teenagers enjoy the security and opportunity that were taken from him. The 5th annual tournament will be held this Saturday, March 24 at the Funky Monkey for the benefit of the Boys and Girls Club of the Lakes Region.The entry fee of $20 includes lunch. Registration begins at 10 a.m. and double elimination play following the rules of the Billiard Congress of America starts at 11 a.m. Trophies and cash prizes will be awarded, raffles will be held and food will be served. Mike Baron of the Robbie Mills Memorial Pool Tournament Committee welcomed Gold Sponsors at $500 and Silver Sponsors at $250 or alternatively suggested sponsoring a player for the cost of the $20 entry fee. He said that donations of goods, services or cash to support the event would also be appreciated. Since the Boys and Girls Club is a non-profit organization, all donations are tax deductible. Wendy Mills, Robbie’s mother,

recalled that the tournament sprang from a conference on the theme of “Stop the Violence” and has been a great success. “It is amazing to see the same people come back year after year,” she said, noting that a contingent from Vermont have been regular contestants. “They don’t miss it,” she continued. “If they are going to play in anything, they’re going to play in this tournament. That trophy with Robbie’s name on it means a lot.” Cheryl Avery, executive director of the club, said that since moving from the campus of the Sacred Heart Church near Laconia High School to Our Lady of the Lakes Catholic Church in Lakeport, teenage membership has fallen to next to nothing. “Restoring our program for teens is definitely a high priority for us,” she said. “We are actively seeking a location within a reasonable distance from the high school and middle school. The tournament will help us get there.” For more information contact Mike Baron at Baron’s Billiards, 528-5001, Pat Bushey at 738-3406 or Corey McGuigan at 534-0440.

GILFORD — Dine at Patrick’s’ Pub on Sunday, March 25, 5-9 p.m. and support the Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary. Patrick’s will generously donate a portion of the evening’s proceeds to the Auxiliary. The Auxiliary directly

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, March 21, 2012— Page 17


Dear Annie: My friend “Jodi” is 27 and very sheltered. Her parents still pay her rent and bills. I’m worried because Jodi has been acting out of character. She cheated on her husband with a 59-year-old man. He’s now her new boyfriend and “soul mate.” He’s creepy. He talks down to her and gropes her in public. She gives him her paycheck and the use of her parents’ credit cards. Jodi has a daughter from her marriage, and the little girl lives with her father. I work for Child Protective Services and know this “dream boyfriend” is a sex offender. When we go out as friends, she brings him along, and he says crude, disgusting things to us about our clothes and our bodies. He even tried to take money out of my purse. Jodi thinks this is funny and says I should lighten up. I told her about his history and that she should be cautious with him around her daughter. She became angry and said she never wanted to speak to me again. I’m OK with that. She’s not the person I once knew. My job obligates me to report that this man is spending time with a young child, and I have informed his parole officer. But I also think I should advise the little girl’s father, who has primary custody, and Jodi’s parents, who have secondary custody. My boss says I’ve done my duty by alerting the parole board, and that speaking to the family is a personal choice. My husband says I don’t need to crusade to protect every child. Finding out that the creep stays overnight when her daughter is in the house made my skin crawl. Should I tell the family? -- Not a Crusader Dear Crusader. Yes. We doubt Jodi’s parents will do anything since they already enable their daughter to be irresponsible. But the little girl’s father will want to do everything he can to protect his child. You can’t prevent Jodi from being an

idiot about this man, but please don’t turn your back on her daughter. Dear Annie: My brief romance with “Marie” ended many years ago when I left California to attend law school in Michigan. She married someone else and had a family, and so did I. We each divorced years later and, by chance, met up and rekindled our romance. Marie is a wonderful, dynamic woman, and every moment is filled with laughter and love. Our children have accepted us, and Marie encourages me to remain civil with my ex in order to co-parent effectively. Here’s my dilemma: When visiting my home, she saw a framed collage of pictures in my entrance hallway, some of which include my ex-wife and me. She calls it a “shrine.” I see it as pictures on the wall. My youngest son, now 14, likes this picture. Marie gave me an ultimatum, adding, “If he likes it so much, put it in his room.” I feel she is being unreasonable. I truly love Marie, but now I wonder whether I am trading one controlling partner for a new one. We have nearly broken up over this. -- Perplexed Dear Perplexed: It’s quite presumptuous for a girlfriend to dictate what pictures you can have in your hallway, especially when your son still lives with you and removing the collage would bother him. Unless you have a large portrait of your ex hanging in the living room, it’s not Marie’s business. Tread cautiously. Dear Annie: This is for “Fed Up,” whose brother-in-law helps himself to their food and wine. My mother also does this at everyone’s home because she thinks it’s cute. I was fed up, so I removed the tag from a jar of dog treats, and one day Mom walked into my house and ate one without asking. Rest assured, she no longer takes food from my kitchen without permission. -- Texas

LACONIA — Taylor Community has received a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council to present Nineteenth Century American Popular Music on Monday, March 26 at 7 p.m. in the Woodside Building at Taylor Community. Eric A. Bye will lead a public discussion on American music and how it has much to do with our identity as a nation. More than just entertainment, music is connected with social conditions, emerging from the sea, from cotton fields, lumber camps, and kitchens. Twentieth century music: blues, country, swing, rock, gospel, folk all emerged from earlier forms such as hymns, minstrel tunes, sea chanteys, voyageur tunes, ragtime, and patriotic songs from the Civil War. This program is free and open to the public. Make reservations for seating by calling 524-5600.
