Rotarians see 10,000 daylilies in Laconia’s future BY ADAM DRAPCHO
I WANNA RIDE
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
GREAT DEALS! COOL GIVEAWAYS!
LACONIA — The Laconia Rotary Club has given the city flowers in past years. In 1997, the club helped develop downtown’s Rotary Park and the club continues to sponsor landscaping there. More recently, Rotarians helped the city populate the refurbished Stewart Park with attractive plantings. This year, the club has purchased $1,000 worth of daylilies, and is looking for the public’s cooperation in an effort to plant the flow-
ers from one end of the city to the other. Rotarian Warren Clement, who is organizing the project with help from Dale Squires of Belknap Landscape Company, said the club’s vision is to plant the daylilies, grown by Merrymeeting Garden Center in New Durham, in front yards and along road sides from the Belmont town line all the way to Meredith. “It might take three years, but we’d like to plant 10,000 throughout the city,” Clement said. The flowers will be sold for $1 per plant and see DAYLILIES page 8

Bullying expert suggests we’re raising ‘meanest generation’ BY ROGER AMSDEN FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — Parents of Laconia Middle Schoolers were told Tuesday night by an anti-bullying expert that there is an epidemic of bullying in American schools that affects 30 to 50-percent of the nation’s school children. “All indications are that we are raising the meanest generation ever,’’ said Dr. Malcolm Smith, a family life and family education specialist with the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension Service. “It’s time to get more serious as parents. But it’s not a school problem, or a parent problem or a school board problem. It’s everybody’s problem,’’ said Smith, who said that if the same level of threat was posed by a communicable disease there would be an overwhelming public outcry for action. He said that he was severely bullied himself as a teenager and that 40 years later he can still recall the incident, in which he was shoved to the ground and spat upon by other students at a Kansas high school and called ‘’farm trash.’’ see BULLYING page 14

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dick Clark stood as an avatar of rock ‘n’ roll virtually from its birth and, until his death Wednesday at age 82, as a cultural touchstone for boomers and their grandkids alike. His identity as “the world’s oldest teenager” became strained in recent years, as time and infirmity caught up with his enduring boyishness. But he owned New Year’s Eve after four decades hosting his annual telecast on ABC from Times Square. And as a producer and entertainment entrepreneur, he was a media titan: his Dick Clark Productions supplied movies, game shows, beauty contests and more to TV, and, for a time in the 1980s, he boasted programs on all three networks. Equally comfortable chatting about music with Sam Cooke or bantering with Ed McMahon on “TV’s Bloopers and Practical Jokes,” Clark was listed among the Forbes 400 of wealthiest Americans.

3 Secret Service agents fired in wake of prostitution scandal WASHINGTON (AP) — Moving swiftly, the Secret Service forced out three agents Wednesday in a prostitution scandal that has embarrassed President Barack Obama. A senior congressman welcomed the move to hold people responsible for the tawdry episode but warned “it’s not over.” The agency announced three agents are leaving the service even as separate U.S. government investigations were under way. The Secret Service did not identify the agents being forced out of the government
or eight more it said remain on administrative leave. In a statement, it said one supervisor was allowed to retire and another will be fired for cause. A third employee, who was not a supervisor, has resigned. The agents were implicated in the prostitution scandal in Colombia that also involved about 10 military service members and as many as 20 women. All the Secret Service employees who were involved had their security clearances revoked. “These are the first steps,” said Rep. Pete
King, R-N.Y., chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, which oversees the Secret Service. King said the agency’s director, Mark Sullivan, took employment action against “the three people he believes the case was clearest against.” But King warned: “It’s certainly not over.” King said the agent set to be fired would sue. King said Sullivan had to follow collective bargaining rules but was “moving as quickly as he can. Once he feels the facts see SECRET SERVICE page 8
WASHINGTON (AP) — Defense Secretary Leon Panetta apologized Wednesday for gruesome, newly revealed photographs that show U.S. soldiers posing with the bloodied remains of dead insurgents in Afghanistan. He said war can lead young troops to “foolish decisions” and expressed concern the photos could incite fresh violence against Americans. The White House called the two-yearold photos “reprehensible,” joining Panetta
and other top military officials in expressing regret for the latest in a string of embarrassing missteps by the U.S. military in a war that’s built on earning the trust and confidence of ordinary Afghans. In recent months, American troops have been caught up in controversies over burning Muslim holy books, urinating on Afghan corpses, an alleged massacre of 17 Afghan villagers and other misdeeds. “This is war. I know that war is ugly and
it’s violent, and I know that young people sometimes caught up in the moment make some very foolish decisions,” Panetta said. “I am not excusing that behavior, but neither do I want these images to bring further injury to our people or to our relationship with the Afghan people.” “My apology is on behalf of the Department of Defense and the U.S. government,” Panetta told a news conference in Brussels see PHOTOS page 12
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Their battle joined, challenger Mitt Romney savaged President Barack Obama’s handling of the economy on Wednesday while the commander in chief commiserated up close with victims of the recession and warned that Republicans would only make matters worse.
“Obama is over his head and swimming in the wrong direction” when it comes to the economy, Romney said in a scorching speech delivered across the street from the football stadium where the president will deliver his Democratic National Convention acceptance speech this summer. “Even if you like Barack Obama, we
can’t afford Barack Obama,” the former Massachusetts governor declared, an evident reference to the president’s ability to transcend at least some of the public’s dissatisfaction with the pace of the recovery. Romney quoted liberally — and mockingly — from Obama’s 2008 campaign pledges to see CAMPAIGN page 15

BELMONT — A three-alarm fire that heavily damaged an apartment building at the corner of Gale Avenue and Nelson Court Tuesday night is believed to have started in a debris pile which had been building up in recent weeks on the Nelson Court side of the building. ‘’That appears to be the area where it started,’’ said Belmont Fire Department Deputy Chief Sean McCarty, who said yesterday afternoon that the investigation into the cause of the fire is still ongoing. Displaced by the fire was a family of four, the only people still living in the large building, which since November 2 of last year has been owned by the HSBC Bank of Plano, Texas. Angela Joyce, who lived in a second floor apartment with her husband, Robert, and sons David, 17, and Logan, 11, said that she was alerted to the fire around 8:45 p.m. by a person from a neighboring home who had spotted the fire and pounded on her door. “I had been watching television when I heard that the building was on fire. I grabbed the dog and got out quick,’’ said Joyce, who said that firefighters were able to rescue a pet ferret as well as three cats who were still in the apartment when she left. Her husband said that he was grateful that firefighters moved his motorcycle away from the building and said that his pickup truck, which was parked on the sidewalk just below the upstairs bedroom window, suffered only minor damage when firefighters broke out the window to vent the smoke. Joyce said that her family was planning to leave the building in two weeks anyway but didn’t know how many of their possessions had been damaged because they hadn’t been able to re-enter the burned out building as of yesterday afternoon. She said that they were being assisted with their immediate needs by the local Red Cross chapter and would most likely be staying with relatives. Fire Chief David Parenti said that when the initial call came in at 8:47 p.m. Belmont’s Engine 2 was enroute to a three-alarm fire in Laconia and that the first truck on the scene on Gale Street was Engine 3, which reported a heavy fire and requested a second alarm. He said that after Engine 1 arrived at the scene

an aggressive interior attack was mounted and that, based on the volume of fire and size of the building, a third alarm was requested. Belmont’s Engine 2 was released from the Laconia fire to come to the scene, along with units from a half dozen nearby towns. Parenti said that at one point all companies were removed from the building due to deteriorating conditions. After a brief exterior attack companies regrouped and completed interior operations. He said that the area of the building where the fire apparently began is not salvageable.

The real GSA scandal is Big Labor payoffs Stop the presses: Big-spending Democrats are finally up in arms over a federal boondoggle. Details of the U.S. General Services Administration bacchanalia get worse by the day. We’ve graduated from overpriced breakfasts in Vegas, friendsand-family junkets galore and in-house videos mocking their own profligacy to extravagant bonuses, alleged kickbacks, obstructionism and bribes. But the scandal is still small potatoes compared to the potential billions GSA is pouring down the Big Labor drain. Whistleblowers and an independent inspector general investigation estimate that the GSA’s Sin City conference cost taxpayers an estimated $1-million in 2010. Washington bureaucrats squandered another $234,000 on public relations damage control. An interim GSA director announced Tuesday on Capitol Hill that 35 upcoming conferences would be canceled at a cost savings of less than $1-million. Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland vowed that GSA officials would be “made to pay back” taxpayers. The arrogance of these civil servants is, of course, jaw-dropping. Regional Commissioner Jeff Neely, the Paris Hilton of GSA party animals, wrote in an invitation to personal friends: “We’ll get you guys a room near us, and we’ll pick up the room tab. ... I know I’m bad, but as Deb and I often say, why not enjoy it while we have it and while we can. Ain’t gonna last forever.” Neely’s gone, along with seven other top administrators, and the GSA travel budget has dried up for now. But this is just a sliver of the permanently enshrined waste that constitutes the bread-and-butter business of the behemoth agency, which runs on a $45-billion annual budget — including $5.5-billion in federal stimulus money to oversee capital building projects. Thanks to President Obama (whose White House reflexively tried to blame Party in the GSAgate on the Bush administration), the federal government is steering that money toward Big Labor patrons with a proven track record of cost overruns, construction delays and corruption. As I’ve reported previously, the linchpin is E.O. 13502, a unionfriendly executive order signed by Obama in his first weeks in office. It essentially forces contractors who bid on large-scale public construction projects worth $25-million or more to submit to union representation for its employees. The blunt instrument used to give unions a leg up is the “project labor agreement,” which in theory sets reasonable prework terms and conditions. But in practice, it requires contractors to
hand over exclusive bargaining control, to pay inflated, above-market wages and benefits, and to fork over dues money and pension funding to corrupt, cash-starved labor organizations. These anti-competitive agreements undermine a fair bidding process on projects that locked-out, nonunion laborers are funding with their own tax dollars. And these PLAs benefit the privileged few at the expense of the vast majority: In the construction industry, 85-percent of the workforce is nonunion by choice. David G. Tuerck of the Department of Economics and Beacon Hill Institute at Suffolk University testified on Capitol Hill last year: “The adoption of a PLA amounts, in effect, to the conferral of monopoly power on a select group of construction unions over the supply of construction labor.” The mandate serves “one purpose: to discourage competition from nonunion contractors (and, in some instances, union contractors) to the end of shoring up declining union power, along with union-mandated wages and benefits, against competitive pressures.” The institute’s studies show that PLAs have added between 12 and 18-percent to school construction costs in Massachusetts and Connecticut. The total price tag for GSA projects built with PLAs remains unknown. But here’s just one example: The Washington Examiner reported in 2010 that the GSA paid the federal Lafayette Building’s general contractor an additional $3.3-million above the initial $52-million contract to ensure that the project was built with a union payback PLA. The Obama administration had previously tried to slip a PLA mandate into a $35-million jobs center construction project in New Hampshire, but retreated when state contractors challenged the provision as an unfair restriction on competition. According to The Washington Times, just 8.7-percent of construction workers are unionized in New Hampshire. Among the GSA administrators fired over Vegas-palooza was Robert A. Peck, chief of the agency’s Public Buildings Service. That’s the same office overseeing the $5.5-billion in stimulus contracts for capital projects like the Lafayette Building. But neither Peck nor any other GSA official nor the White House has been held accountable for job-killing union favoritism in its everyday contracting practices. And as the pro-competition watchdog website The Truth About Project Labor Agreements points out: “Numerous (GSA) projects have been awarded to contractors submitting PLA bids at the expense of qualified firms opposed to PLA see next page
LETTERS Trying to label me a right wing extremist doesn’t make it so To the editor, Hey, Marty’s back! Welcome back into the fray Marty. I’m speaking of Marty Valengavich of course readers. Marty says he’s been absent due to family issues. Well we all hope it was nothing to serious and it was resolved well. I hope you and your family are all doing well. Now back once more into the breach. Marty doesn’t think I’m a moderate and I can understand that because it’s my habit to usually write in response to the most offensive assertions, smears and slanders. For instance, a while back I got into a back and forth when one gentleman who said that the Tea Party were all racists. I took offense to that having been to several. I saw no racist signs or heard no racist comments. Still the writer insisted they existed but when challenged couldn’t show any proof or evidence of it. Another, for instance, was when debating another writer who declared Fox News lies. Yet he too was unable to give even a single example of such. Progressives love to throw around these kinds of accusations, heck they use the claim of racism like a club trying to bully people who honestly disagree with them politically into silence. Marty says James Veverka ticks me off. He’s right! O’l Jim starts with one letter accusing conservatives of, you
guessed it, racism then in the next goes on an anti-Christian rant blaming all the ills of the world, it seemed, on them. So yes, I was offended by his hypocrisy and just plain nasty attitude. Never once does he mention Jews, Muslims, Hindus or any other religion which all have had their dark moments. So why Christians? Easy, most fundamentalist Christians are conservatives. It’s not religion he hates it’s conservatives he despises. Jim will write these long, long letters and uses people like Paul Krugman as reference sources. Heck he once even used his own letter as a reference. So yea Marty, people like that annoy me. I even responded to one frequent writer who wrote that we (the U.S.) sold weapons of mass destruction to Saddam Hussein, which was a flat out lie. This person wrote the same thing not once but twice with a couple years separating his letters. And yes I called him on it both times. But trying to label me as some hard right wing extremist doesn’t make it so. Even if it were so you still have not offered readers any evidence to support those accusations you made before family matters curtailed your letters. Were waiting. Steve Earle Hill
We applaud Rep. Bass for his effort to protect natural treasurers To the editor, As a New Hampshire native, I have ingrained in me a deep connection with our state’s forests, lakes, mountains and wild places. Conserved lands are an important part of our heritage, our identity, economy and quality of life. Congressman Charlie Bass understands this, and we should applaud his efforts to help protect our state’s natural treasures by supporting the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). Dollars for this fund come from offshore drilling revenues set aside for conservation; this means no tax dollars are spent. The benefits to the public are many: LWCF has aided in establishing state parks and national wildlife ref-
uges ensuring continued access to trail heads, traditional hunting and fishing grounds, wildlife viewing and the outdoor recreation. Generating nearly $4-billion annually in sales and services, outdoor recreation provides jobs for Granite Staters, attracts visitors to the state and generates an estimated $261-million in tax revenues. Congressman Bass as well as Senators Shaheen and Ayotte understand the important role land conservation plays in preserving the character of our state and the economic boost they provide to our families and communities.

LETTERS Ask our reps in Washington to support Mercury clean air standard
An active, bright kid will become a major problem if ignored
To the editor, More than ever, improving the North Country economy is one of my top priorities. While there is no silver bullet, we do have silver buckshot. We can enhance our pristine outdoor environment for residents and visitors and we can replace job-draining oil and propane imports with job-creating, locallyproduced wind, wood, and energy efficiency. The Environmental Protection Agency’s new Mercury air pollution standard will help us achieve both. The greatest remaining form of unregulated air pollution is Mercury – along with arsenic, chromium, nickel, and other toxic gases – released directly into the atmosphere largely by 400 old, coal-fired power plants located in states upwind from New Hampshire. Mercury and these air toxics cause cancer, neurological damage such as reduced IQ, heart disease, asthma attacks, and premature death. Mercury from these coal plants has polluted all of New Hampshire’s land and fresh water bodies and harmed New Hampshire wildlife dependent upon them. A new study finds that mercury in a wide-ranging number of birds and bats is high enough to cause physiological and reproductive harm. One-quarter of freshwater fish tested for mercury had levels so high that eating them would pose a health risk to women of childbearing age and young children. Fish consumption advisories now apply to all NH fresh water bodies. These old coal plants also belch out smog and microscopic particles that make Coos County air unhealthy to breathe during over ten days each year. Way back in 1990, Congress knew about these issues and ordered EPA to regulate Mercury and air toxics. Finally in December, after twenty years of delay, EPA released the mercury and air toxics air pollution standard. This new standard will eliminate 90 percent of power plant mercury air pollution, preventing as many as 11,000 premature deaths, 130,000 asthma attacks, 4,700 heart attacks, and 540,000 lost days of work
To the editor, I must compliment Ryan Griffin for his letter in the April 3 Laconia Daily Sun. I grossly oversimplified the ADD problem (ie, showed one side), and Ryan has an excellent response to that, also oversimplified, BUT a good step in expanding understanding. I’ll try to expand a bit on it, and hope that Ryan, and others will also try to promote more understanding. I’m sure we will both disagree on points BUT that’s the way to move to the center. Ryan, I hope you get to be 79 and more, where you will realize you have to rely on many others much more than ever expected. “ADD” as I have it, and most of my very successful friends have it, never goes away, but we adapt as we must. The many other forms you have referred to sometimes are “cured”, but too often are a lifetime problem. When recognized and treated, the child has a better chance (as well as the parent and teacher). It seems to me that much other education problems we see are caused by neglected, undisciplined children. At least those with diagnosed “ADD” get a better chance. But what
due to illness each year. By 2016, the Mercury standard will generate health benefits of between $37 billion and $90 billion each year, delivering $3-$9 in health benefits for every dollar spent to reduce pollution. The Mercury standard will not reduce the reliability of our electric system. It gives utilities sufficient time to comply by installing cost-effective pollution controls already being used by the best performing power plants. Power from uneconomic coal plants can be replaced with excess capacity from natural gas plants that are currently being run at less than full capacity. Longer term – and here is where economic and jobs benefits for the North Country are created – greater use of energy efficiency and clean wind and wood power can affordably replace old coal plants. There is also an issue of fairness here. Coal utilities wanting a free pass on their air pollution have been able to block the national Mercury standard for two decades. So, seventeen states have adopted their own power plant Mercury standards, New Hampshire being first to do so in 2002. In response, Public Service Company of New Hampshire created hundreds of construction jobs installing a pollution scrubber on its Merrimack Station coal plant. While we’ve cleaned up our act, air pollution continues to blow into our state from Midwest power plants. This is why we need a national Mercury standard. Unfortunately, the new national Mercury clean air standard has come under harsh attack in Congress, with more attacks in the works. Please thank Senator Kelly Ayotte, Senator Jeanne Shaheen, and Congressman Charlie Bass for standing up for New Hampshire and voting to defend the national Mercury standard. We should encourage Congressman Frank Guinta to join the fight for healthier air and clean energy jobs in New Hampshire. Ray Burton N.H. Executive Council - District 1 Bath
Granny D’s cause will be alive & well at May 11 dinner in Concord To the editor, I hear the people’s raised voices against corrupting money in politics wherever I go! Dread accompanies this election period already. Dread for the slam-bang of nasty and pricey TV ads. Dread for the purchased outcome of what is meant to be fair and free elections. The people making our will known, via our votes, is what democracy is all about. However, we have Citizens United case (corporations are people with free-speech rights) dragging down that ideal that Granny D called clean elections. I was in Florida last week, gave an arm up to an elderly woman who’d fallen in the rough surf. She later played a Scrabble game with my older daughter and me. I asked if she’d heard of Granny D. She hadn’t. She was immediately interested. She knew all about Citizens United case and that we must get corrupting money out of our elections. I decided
Never Too Old to Raise a Little Hell”. One recent morning I had an informing call from Public Citizen, and gave them a donation. They are taking Citizens United case to court, trying to get it overturned. Here in New Hampshire on May 11th, Bill McKibben will be speaking at a fundraiser dinner for Coalition for Open Democracy. Coalition for Open Democracy is Granny D’s ongoing group, still at it, working hard to get her clean elections goal achieved. Please put this May 11 event on your calendar. This dinner will be held at NH Audubon, 84 Silk Farm Rd. Concord, 6 to 8 p.m. Doors open at 5:15 for social time. Seats limited, $40. Anyone with the will to fight for what’s right could give support now by attending the dinner and hearing Bill McKibben on this topic. For Information: 661-8621. I hope to see you there.

about those other ignored ones? An active eager bright kid WILL become a major problem if ignored! There should be NO difference in schools up to 8th grade, from 1945 to now! Sadly there are much more nonsense distractions which clearly prevent learning, which is why the typical student today has learned much less of the basics. BUT, in China, Japan, Russia, India and others the students are far ahead of where we were back in 1950, while our students are several years behind our 1950 standards. Clearly that is NOT due to drug treatment of children, but MAY be due to family neglect and failure of our schools. It is all tied together! No single cause or cure. Just as an aside: I have observed that students involved in music (orchestra, band, chorus, etc. ALL seem to do a lot better academically. Which is causing which? Back to you Ryan, and as still a young “kid”, you can do better than this antique! Jack Stephenson Gilford
GOP trying to restrict voters they know don’t agree with them To the editor, Voter suppression is a strategy to influence the OUTCOME OF AN ELECTION by discouraging or preventing people from exercising their “right to vote”. The history of the United States of America has been one of an on-going fight to expand the right to vote. Originally the vote was restricted to “white men with property” eliminating African Americans and many poor white voters. Finally women got the right to vote. In the 1960’s came the Voting Rights Act. This act lowered the voting age, increasing the numbers of citizens who were empowered to vote. Now, thanks to the Republicans, comes “voter dis-enfranchisement”. Under the banner of voter fraud the Republicans are systematically changing voters rights. Republican-controlled legislatures in
many states have passed a wide range of new bills in 2011 that will restrict, rather than broaden, access to the ballot box. As a result, the estimates are that as many as 5-million voters could be disenfranchised in the 2012 election. Some of these voter laws include, elimination of same-day registration, early voting, absentee ballots, Sunday voting, photo identification, college students being able to vote on campus. Pending Senate votes on SB-318 and SB-289, the state of N.H. is doing the same thing. All of these “laws” restrict the poor, minorities, senior citizens and our younger college citizens. These laws are to enable the Republicans to restrict the voters that they know will not vote Republican. Cathy Dawson Laconia
Strength of our community again shown with Army cleanup To the editor, The Main Street Initiative of Laconia, Inc. would like to thank Sgt. William R. Enos and Sgt. Joseph Dougherty, the US Army Recruiters, and the new Army recruits for their efforts on Saturday, April 141h, to clean and sweep the sidewalks and apart of Main Street between Beacon Street and Pleasant Street. These young men showed a great deal of energy and enthusiasm and we greatly appreciate their efforts and their commitment to the community. We would also like to thank the Laconia Public Works Department for
providing the brooms, bags, signs, and truck used on Saturday morning. Finally, but certainly not least, we would like to thank Drew and Elisa Seneca of the Downtown Deli for providing the pancake breakfast and water for the recruits and for their contribution to the beautification of the downtown. This great event was another strong showing of the strength of our community, as evidenced by our people. Again, thanks to all who contributed and worked on the clean-up! Patrick Wood, President Main Street Initiative of Laconia, Inc.

Sanbornton officials preparing for May 9 Town Meeting; SB-2 on ballot again By Mike Mortensen FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
SANBORNTON – Voters will be asked to approve a nearly $3.7-million operating budget, plus another $1.1-million for special items and capital expenditures when they go to Town Meeting next month. The proposed operated budget to be voted on at the May 9 Town Meeting is $3,687,279 – an increase of 1.4-percent. The town’s operating budget for the current fiscal year which ends June 30 is $3,639,154, according to Town Administrator Bob Veloski. The proposed operating budget which is being recommended by the Budget Committee is $2,765 less than the figure proposed by the Board of Selectmen. Veloski said the Budget Committee and selectmen differed on just two items. The Budget Committee voted to add $3,230 to a line item in the general government portion of the budget, but cut $5,994 from the amount selectmen had recommended for the library. The largest of the special expenditures is for $266,252 to resurface and install improved drainage systems for Upper Bay and Steele Hill roads. Two-thirds of the cost — $177,502 — would be paid by the state, with the rest coming from local taxes. DAYLILIES from page one will be sold as “bare-root” plants. Clement said the daylily is a hardy plant that will grow in just about any soil and can be planted by even novice gardeners. He recommends that the lilies be planted about a foot apart, and as the years go on, the flowers will propogate and fill in the spaces in between. He wasn’t sure how many plants the club will get for its $1,000 bulk purchase, if there’s any profit generated from the sale the club will use the revenue to purchase more flowers. Those who wish to purchase lilies should contact Clement at 520-7650 or Squires at Belknap Landscape Company (528-2798 ext 29). In addition to purchasing flowers, Clement said the club is looking for volunteers to help with planting and would happily accept donations to help further the project. If the club’s vision is achieved, the Laconia landscape will soon be carpeted with colorful, blooming lilies. Clement said, “It’s a beautification program. We have an awful lot of visitors that come to the area, it’s a way of saying, ‘welcome.’” He noted that the flowers would also benefit the local residents would be surrounded by flowers for much of the year. “When the lilies start to bloom, you know it’s summer,” he said. “Let’s brighten up the place.”
In return for the state’s two-thirds funding, the town would become responsible for maintaining Upper Bay and Steele Hill roads in the future. The transfer of the two roads from the state to the town is addressed in a separate warrant article. Around $288,000 in special spending is being sought by the Fire Department. The biggest request is for $269,000 to buy a tanker truck to replace an existing fire engine. If approved, the money would come from capital reserve funds. Voters approved $219,000 for the same purpose last year, which town officials say was not enough to fund the purchase. Other special expenditures for the department are $10,000 for protective clothing for firefighters, $5,000 for emergency medical equipment, and $4,300 for EMS billing and paramedic intercept expenses. Capital budget expenditures to be considered are $109,000 for equipment leased by the Highway Department, and $400,000 to repair various town roads. Voters will also be asked to decide if they want to spend $60,000 to purchase 4 3/4 acres behind and next to the Old Town Hall on Tower Hill Road. If approved, the land would be used for potential expansion of the town offices.
The Town Meeting is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 9, in the Sanbornton Central School. Voting for local offices and one referendum question will take place the preceding day, Tuesday, May 8, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. in Town Hall. The referendum question – by petition – seeks to have the town replace the traditional Town Meeting format with the official ballot (SB-2) method of deciding all local town issues by ballot during daylong voting. This marks the seventh time Sanbornton voters have been asked to approve the change. The question has failed to get the necessary threefifths majority when it was on the ballot in 1999, 2000, 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2006. Budget Committee Chairman Earl Leighton, one of the people behind the latest SB-2 petition, noted that when the question was last on the ballot, 57-percent of the voters supported the change — 3-percent short of the margin needed to pass. “I’m hopeful this might be the year,” he said. There is only one contested race on the ballot. Selectman Karen Ober is being challenged by Mark Ryba.
Clement’s pitch sold John Moriarty, a fellow Rotarian whose family owns the Eight Gables Mall on Union Avenue. Moriarty is planning to plant flowers in front of the property and hopes to start a trend that spreads in both directions along the busy thoroughfare. For Moriarty, the sale represents more than an affordable way to beautify his commercial property.
He is especially attracted to the idea of a common symbol that visually ties the city’s downtown to the neighborhoods of Lakeport and The Weirs. “Unified with colorful lilies seems like a nice image for the city,” he said. “I endorse this program,” Moriarty said. “It’s an improvement in quality of life, it makes Laconia a better place to be.”
SECRET SERVICE from page 2 are clear, he’s going to move.” The embarrassing scandal erupted last week after 11 Secret Service agents were sent home from the colonial-era city of Cartagena on Colombia’s Caribbean coast after a night of partying that reportedly ended with at least some of them bringing prostitutes back to their hotel. The special agents and uniformed officers were in Colombia in advance of President Barack Obama’s arrival for the Summit of the Americas. A White House official said Wednesday night that Obama had not spoken directly to Sullivan since the incident unfolded late last week. Obama’s senior aides are in close contact with Sullivan and the agency’s leadership, said the official, who requested anonymity because they were not authorized to
speak publicly. In Washington and Colombia, separate U.S. government investigations were already under way. King said he has assigned four congressional investigators to the probe. The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, led by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., sought details of the Secret Service investigation, including the disciplinary histories of the agents involved. Secret Service investigators are in Colombia interviewing witnesses. The incident occurred before Obama arrived and was at a different hotel than the president stayed in. New details of the sordid night emerged Wednesday. A 24-year-old self-described prostitute told The New York Times that she met an agent at a discotheque in Cartagena and after a night of drinking, the pair agreed the agent would pay her $800 for sex at the hotel. The next morning, when the hotel’s front desk called because the woman hadn’t left, the pair argued over the price. “I tell him, ‘Baby, my cash money,’” the woman told the newspaper in an interview in Colombia. She said the two argued after the agent initially offered to pay her about $30 and the situation escalated, eventually ending with Colombian law enforcement involved. She said she was eventually paid about $225. The tawdry episode took a sharp political turn when presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney said he would fire the agents involved. Romney told radio host Laura Ingraham on Wednesday that “I’d clean house” at the Secret Service.
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, April 19, 2012 — Page 9
LETTERS Prof. Sandy should get to know some fundamentalist Christians To the editor, In response to Leo Sandy’s America’s four fundamentalisms: From reading Leo Sandy’s columns it sounds to to me like he gets very little from life experience and most of what he writes from what he’s read or what he’s been taught. He talks about Fundamentalist Christians as if their influence on the Republican Party is the sum total of their influence on society. I’m not disowning the affect of Christian fundamentalism on politics, for it largely flows from a Christian’s understanding of a human nature that is corrupt and not changeable outside of a rebirth, that is the Holy Spirit coming to live in your heart through Jesus Christ. This human nature, it is clear that our founders were familiar with. They gave us a republic based on our Creator given rights for all men to be treated as equals under the law. As a practical matter they distrusted our human nature and set up a constitutional republic of limited government with checks and balances that would best protect us from our own human nature, for politicians are humans also. They further added a bill of rights. This government worked. It also allowed religion — and we were by in large a Christian nation — to shape our society and our laws. This helped to keep in check men’s inclination toward licentiousness. This licentiousness, it was recognized would cause a downward spiral that would end in tyranny. Here fundamentalist Christians and Leo Sandy, whom seems to think that our human nature is something that evolves to the good through education and that the limited government and the checks and balances set out in our Constitution are no longer needed, have a disagreement, but it’s not unthinking. He mentions Creation verses science meaning evolution. I do do not have enough space in this letter to deal with that. Suffice
it to say there is a real question as to what is actually science. He judges fundamentalists Christians as, “bigoted, patriarchal, uncritical and insensitive to real social problems such as poverty, racism, the crisis in health care and the increasing impoverishment of America’s children.” It seems that he believes that the leviathan entitlement state is the answer to these problems and because we don’t subscribe to this political philosophy that we don’t care about these. I suggest that Leo should get to know some fundamentalists Christians before he writes scandalous things about them. If he did he might find Christian churches functioning in the community with food pantries to feed the poor, pastors visiting prisoners in jail, Christian’s networking with Christian pastors from around the world, some black, some brown, some white, forming bonds of friendship and sharing across cultural boundaries. He might find Christians struggling with how to show God’s love to a homosexual friend or relative without tickling their ears with the lie that homosexuality is not a perversion of God’s design and purpose. He might find Christians giving generously to feed the hungry and those suffering persecution around the world. He might find Christians struggling to provide health care for their families, yet still not believing that Obamacare is the answer to this problem. He might even find that Jesus still heals. He might find dedicated teachers in Christian schools whom with financial sacrifice to their families teach in Christian schools because that is where they feel that they can make the most difference for our future generation. Clearly he’s not getting this side of the story from Henry A. Giroux. John Demakowski Franklin

A kayaker who did not wish to be identified was rescued from the cold waters of Paugus Bay on Wednesday afternoon by Laconia Fire/ Rescue personnel. His craft was swamped by the wake of a passing power boat. (Laconia Daily Sun photo/Michael Kitch)
RESCUE from page one and firefighters David Jensen and Andy Francis reached and rescued the man, who was in the channel opposite the Four Season near the head of the bay, within six minutes of being alerted. The man was brought to shore to find his mother and girlfriend waiting then escorted to an ambulance, where his cold, wet clothes were removed and he was wrapped in blankets before being taken home. The man said that since the powerboat neither
slowed nor stopped, whoever was at the helm must not have realized that his wake swamped the kayak. According to an officer of the New Hampshire Marine Patrol, who arrived by boat from Glendale after the man had been brought ashore, the water temperature was 46 degrees. Erickson suggested that someone in water that cold would begin to lose muscle control after approximately 15 minutes. — Michael Kitch
CLARK from page 2 hospital, also was part of radio as partner in the United Stations Radio Network, which provided programs — including Clark’s — to thousands of stations. “There’s hardly any segment of the population that doesn’t see what I do,” Clark told The Associated Press in a 1985 interview. “It can be embarrassing. People come up to me and say, ‘I love your show,’ and I have no idea which one they’re talking about.” One of his later TV projects, “American Dreams,” served as a fitting weekly tribute to Clark’s impact. Airing from 2002 to 2005, this NBC drama centered on a Philadelphia family in the early 1960s and, in particular, on 15-year-old Meg, who, through a quirk of fate, found her way onto the set of Clark’s teen dance show, “American Bandstand.” The nostalgic “American Dreams” depicted a musi-
cal revolution, which Clark so reassuringly helped usher in against the backdrop of a nation in turmoil. While never a hit, the series was embraced by older viewers as a warm souvenir of the era that spawned Clark, and as an affectionate history lesson for their children and grandchildren. President Barack Obama noted the nostalgia. “More important than his groundbreaking achievements was the way he made us feel — as young and vibrant and optimistic as he was,” Obama said in a statement. Clark bridged the rebellious new music scene and traditional show business. He defended pop artists and artistic freedom, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame said in an online biography of the 1993 inductee. He helped give black artists their due by playing original R&B recordings instead of cover versions by see next page

4 of 10 apartments in High Street building were badly damaged by fire By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — Fire Chief Ken Erickson said yesterday that the occupants of the ten units of the multifamily building at 63 High Street, which caught fire Tuesday night, escaped without serious harm thanks to efforts of the first firefighters to reach the scene. The 3-alarm fire began near the corner of the porch running across the front and down one side of the two-and-a-half story building to its front entrance. Erickson said that when Lieutenant Jason Bean arrived with his platoon from Central Station, the building was enveloped in dense smoke and fire was racing toward the entrance through which residents sought to leave. He said that Bean and his team — Brian Keyes, Scott Lewandowski, Brad Hardie and Rick Hewlett — checked the flames before they reached the doorway and helped residents out of the building. Erickson said that the building housed 15 adults and six children, five of whom were taken to Lakes Region General Hospital across the street, one for smoke inhalation. The Disaster Action Team of the Red Cross offifrom preceding page white performers, and he condemned censorship. He joined “American Bandstand” in 1956 after Bob Horn, who’d been the host since its 1952 debut, was fired. A year later, Clark integrated the show with black dancers. “It still wasn’t acceptable for them to dance with white kids, so the blacks just danced with each other. We were waiting for the explosion, but it never happened,” Clark told Pennsylvania Heritage Magazine in 1998. “The wonderful part about our decision to integrate then was that there were no repercussions, no reverberations, no battles at all — it just happened right there on a television screen in front of millions of people.” Under Clark’s guidance, “Bandstand” went from a local Philadelphia show to a national phenomenon, introducing stars from Buddy Holly to Madonna. It was one of network TV’s longest-running series as part of ABC’s daytime lineup from 1957 to 1987. “I played records, the kids danced, and America watched,” was how Clark once described the series’ simplicity. In his 1958 hit “Sweet Little Sixteen,” Chuck Berry sang that “they’ll be rocking on Bandstand, Philadelphia, P-A.” As a host, Clark had the smooth delivery of a seasoned radio announcer. As a producer, he had an ear for a hit record. He also knew how to make wary adults welcome this odd new breed of music in their homes. Clark endured accusations that he was in with the squares, with critic Lester Bangs defining Bandstand as “a leggily acceptable euphemism of the teenage experience.” In the 1985 interview, Clark acknowledged the complaints. “But I knew at the time that if we didn’t make the presentation to the older generation palatable, it could kill it. “So along with Little Richard and Chuck Berry and the Platters and the Crows and the Jayhawks ... the boys wore coats and ties and the girls combed their hair and they all looked like sweet little kids into a high school dance,” he said. Clark suffered a stroke in 2004 that affected his ability to speak and walk. That year, he missed his annual appearance on “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.” He returned the following year and, although his speech at times was difficult to understand, many praised his bravery, including other stroke victims. “I’m just thankful I’m still able to enjoy this once-a-year treat,” he told The Associated Press by email in December 2008 as another New Year’s Eve approached. Ryan Seacrest, who subsequently took over main hosting duties on the countdown show from Clark, said in a statement Wednesday that he was “deeply saddened.” “I idolized him from the start,” Seacrest said. “He was a remarkable host and businessman and left a rich legacy to television audiences around the world.”
cials reported that 23 people — 17 adults and six children aged between four months and 12 years — were displaced by the fire when the utilities were shut down. The Red Cross provided money for lodging to four families. Erickson said that four of the 10 units were deemed uninhabitable after firefighters took down exterior walls, exposing the apartments to the elements, in the course of fighting the fire. He anticipated that residents could return to the remaining six units yesterday or today once the electricity and fire alarms were reconnected. He estimated the cost of the damage at approximately $75,000. The first firefighters to arrive reported fire glowing from beneath the northwest corner of the porch. Erickson said that the firefighters were hampered as the fire burned through the porch to the soffit at the corner of the building. “Jay Ellingson was using a chain saw on the soffit when the porch collapsed
under him,” he said. “If he weren’t such a strong guy he could have cut himself or another firefighter in half.” Erickson said that containing the fire and evacuating the building was “a lot of work for just five firefighters.” Within minutes after the alarm was sounded, another fire was reported in Belmont. Erickson credited the Lakes Region Mutual Fire Aid Association with efficiently deploying the apparatus and personnel between the two simultaneous structure fires blazing so near one another. Bean’s team at High Street was joined by Captain Kirk Beattie, who was off-duty but smelled the smoke from his home, as well as firefighters from the Weirs Beach Station and Gilford. A second and third alarm brought firefighters from Meredith, Holderness and even Belmont. Meanwhile, units from Franklin, Tilton-Northfield, Gilmanton, Barnstead and Loudon were dispatched to the fire in Belmont.

Alton panel picks 2 finalists for school superintendent ALTON — The Superintendent Search Committee comprised of school board members, administrators, teachers, community members, and parents announce the finalists for Superintendent of Schools for the Alton School District – SAU #72. The Central School staff and the community will be invited to a reception for the two men on May 8. More details will follow at a later date. William Lander of Ossipee is currently serving SAU 83 – Fremont School District – as a part-time superintendent, which supports a pre-K – 8 grade school of 530 students and 50 teachers/staff. His experience has included budgeting, negotiations, a building project, strategic planning, and especially providing direction for the improvement of curriculum and instruction focusing on grade level expectations serving as the
foundation. He has high expectations, is flexible, and possesses the interpersonal and communication skills necessary in a strong leader. Jay McIntire of Tamworth is currently serving as superintendent for SAU 13, which includes the towns of Freedom, Madison, and Tamworth. Seven hundred students attend three elementary schools and their high school students attend Kennett High School in nearby Conway. In serving a multi-district SAU, he has provided leadership and support to boards, large and small. His specific experience has been in special education and his expertise in the development of programs for students with gifts and talents. He would also bring knowledge in emergency planning, budget development, school law, policy development and human resources.
LACONIA — The Belknap County Commissioners last night unanimously approved the request of Dan Ward, superintendent of the Department of Corrections, for a federal grant to support “New Directions,” a technical education program for inmates of the county jail. Ward told the commission that the grant, awarded by the United States Department of Education, would be applied to expanding the program to include basic carpentry and auto mechanics in partnership with the Lakes Region Community College. The projected budget for the two additional classes is $75,764, consisting of matching in-kind services, supplies and equipment worth $47,966 and grant funding of $27,798. Questioned by Commission Chairman Ed Philpot, Ward assured the commissioners that while expanding the program would place additional responsibili-
ties on department employees, there would be no additional costs to the county. Ward said that the program has capacity for a maximum of 60 inmates. He said that the goal of the program is to increase the number of inmates who are fully employed after their release by between 2-percent and 3-percent. In addition, he said that the program aims to secure employment for 25-percent of participants within six months of their release and to have kept a job for a year after their release. Overall the program is designed to reduce the inmates returning to jail by providing them with marketable skills and encouraging them to pursue their education and training. Those who successfully complete the program, Ward explained, will receive credits from Lakes Region Community College toward furthering their education. — Michael Kitch
PHOTOS from page 2 following a meeting of NATO allies at which the way ahead in Afghanistan was the central topic. The photos were published in Wednesday’s Los Angeles Times. One shows members of the 82nd Airborne Division posing in 2010 with Afghan police holding the severed legs of a suicide bomber. The same platoon a few months later was sent to investigate the remains of three insurgents reported to have accidentally blown themselves up — and soldiers again posed and mugged for a photo with the remains, the newspaper said. A photo from the second incident appears to show the hand of a dead insurgent resting on a U.S. soldier’s shoulder as the soldier smiles. Panetta said he had urged the newspaper not to publish the photos, which it said it were given by a member of the 82nd Airborne.
“The reason for that is those kinds of photos are used by the enemy to incite violence, and lives have been lost by the publication of similar photos in the past,” he said in Brussels. His British counterpart, Philip Hammond, said he regretted the “besmirching of the good name” of all coalition troops who act properly. There was no evidence of a violent Afghan backlash in the first hours following the photographs’ publication. In fact, there was no immediate comment from the Afghan government or President Hamid Karzai’s office, and many officials said they were not aware of the pictures, which were taken in Zabul province. The governor of the province, Ashraf Nasary, said he could not comment because he did not know about the incident or who was involved.

Napoli homers again as Rangers beat Red Sox 6-3 BOSTON (AP) — Mike Napoli hit a two-run homer and drove in four runs, Derek Holland pitched seven solid innings and the red-hot Texas Rangers completed a two-game sweep with a 6-3 win over the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday night. Josh Hamilton had three singles and drove in a run for the Rangers, who won their sixth straight. It was Napoli’s fourth home run in three games to go along with a two-run double. He hit a pair of homers in the Rangers’ lopsided win Tuesday. Kevin Youkilis had a two-run homer for the Red Sox, who dropped their third consecutive game, and Josh Beckett (1-2) took the loss despite holding the Rangers down one night after they hit six homers in an 18-3 win. Holland (2-0) held Boston to two runs on four hits, walking three and fanning seven. Boston has lost eight of its last 10 games at Fenway Park against the Rangers. The Red Sox have lost eight of their first 12 games
this season heading into their first matchup against the rival Yankees, who come to town Friday for Fenway’s100th anniversary celebration. Unlike Tuesday when the Rangers pounded Boston’s pitching en route to the easy win, they relied on the formula that’s helped them to the AL’s best record. Texas, which improved to 10-2, once again got strong starting pitching. The Rangers’ starters have opened the season 8-0 for the first time in club history and posted a 1.84 ERA in their last eight games, allowing three runs or fewer in the previous six. Beckett allowed three runs on seven hits, striking out seven and walking one. It was his second straight strong start, coming off an eight-inning, one-run outing when he got the victory over Tampa Bay in Boston’s home opener last Friday. Pinch hitter Jarrod Saltamacchia lined into a game-ending double play against Joe Nathan with runners on first and third.
N.H. lawmakers working on major changes to school building aid program CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire lawmakers are moving ahead with a new school aid construction system that uses rankings to determine which projects get funding, but the House and Senate must first resolve differences in their proposals. The Senate voted without debate Wednesday to replace the House’s proposal with its own and send it back to the House. Senate Education Chairwoman Nancy Stiles said the passage sets the stage for the two sides to negotiate a compromise. The biggest difference between the chambers is how to fund the aid, said Stiles, R-Hampton. The House would cap funding at $50 million while the Senate would let the Legislature set the amount every budget cycle, she said. “The House is pretty strong on wanting to put on a $50 million cap,” Stiles said. The deadline to act on compromise legislation this
CAMPAIGN from page 2 repair the economy. At the same time, Obama sketched his case for re-election in swing-state Ohio, where he met with unemployed workers who have enrolled in job training programs. Then he spoke at the Lorain County Community College. “Right now, companies can’t find enough qualified workers for the jobs they need to fill” locally, he said. “So programs like this one are training hundreds of thousands of workers with the skills that companies are looking for. And it’s working.” By contrast, he said, between the years 2000 and 2008, Republican policies produced “the slowest job growth in half a century ... and we’ve spent the last three and a half years cleaning up after that mess.”

session is June 7. Both bills call for paying off existing aid commitments as a top priority which means the House proposal would leave only $6.4 million for building aid the first year and $16.5 million four years later. Since 1955, New Hampshire has paid a share of stateapproved public school construction projects without limits on who can get aid. The state’s share ranges from 30 to 60 percent of the principal depending on the type of school district and is paid in installments over the life of the bond taken out to pay for the project. Under both proposals, the state would pay its share of the principal up front to reduce local borrowing costs, but applications for aid would be ranked according to criteria such as unsafe conditions, obsolete facilities, overcrowding and maintenance efforts. The House proposes paying 100 percent up front; the Senate, half up front and half on completion. Though Democratic Gov. John Lynch has long called for reforms to the system so aid could be targeted to the neediest districts, neither proposal figures a community’s ability to raise money for a project into its ranking system. However, Lynch has said he supports the concept being proposed in the bills. In an effort to give poorer communities more aid, the Senate’s proposal would increase the spread for the state’s share to between 20 and 80 percent. A community’s wealth would not be a factor in determining a project’s rank, but it would be a factor in the state aid the community received once a project made the priority list, Stiles said. She said poorer communities would get closer to 80 percent. The Senate’s plan also allows exceptions for emergencies should a project need to be bumped up in priority.

NH Jazz presents a ‘The Government Inspector’ at Sant Bani School starts tonight, runs through Saturday special Saturday Show:
SANBORNTON — Featuring a cast of 20 high school and six junior high students, with magnificent costumes by former Sant Bani parent, Mary Randall, The Government Inspector opens tonight at 7 p.m. at Sant Bani School. Greedy, self-serving small-town politicians. A corrupt bureaucracy. Bribes. And in the title role, a complete slacker, a morally deficient anti-hero. That’s the hilariously self-centered world of The Government Inspector by Nikolai Gogol, in an up-
to-date, new translation by Alistair Beaton and directed by Craig Jaster, Sant Bani School’s Director of Performing Arts. The play revolves around a classic case of mistaken identity, when a shabby young civil servant named Khlestakov (played by senior Andrés Orr) is mistaken for, yes, a Government Inspector “traveling incognito.” The local mayor (senior Adison Lintner) is determined to prevent him from seeing how awful conditions are in his backwater provincial town; and if that task proves impossible, well, perhaps he and his cronies could persuade the gentleman through kid glove treatment…and cash? Meanwhile, the Inspector’s arrival excites the imagination of the whole town, especially the Mayor’s excitable wife (freshman Sophia Gilberto) and pitifully naïve daughter (junior Emily Monfet), a situation Khlestakov wastes no time in enjoying to his advantage--before leaving town with a pocketful of cash and, it would seem, not a jot of remorse. Hopefully conditions have improved since the massive and thoroughly corrupt bureaucracy under Russia’s Tsar Nicholas I, who is said to have made the observation that the play ridiculed everyone, most of all himself, yet to his credit did not punish Gogol, but rather intervened on his behalf so the play could be produced in 1836. The great gap in status between the educated and the working classes is also closing (culture wars? what culture wars?), but audiences are bound to appreciate the classic comedy of status differences as observed through Gogol’s jaundiced eyes. The only character unimpressed by Khlestakov is his own servant Osip (played by freshman Chai Kim), who comes closest to being a voice of reason in the play, urging his master to get out while the going is still good. The Government Inspector will be performed April 19, 20 and 21 at 7 p.m, in the Studio theater at Sant Bani School. Tickets are $5/$2.50 for students and senior citizens. For advance reservations or more information, call the school at 934-4240.
NEW HAMPTON — A remembrance gathering honoring the life of the late Plymouth State University Professor Emeritus Thomas O. Schlesinger will be held at the Plymouth State University Welcome Center and Ice Arena on Saturday, April 21 from 12:30–3 p.m. Subsequent to a 21 year career in the US Army, Dr. Schlesinger taught Political Science at Plymouth State University for 25 years and State University of New York, Fredonia from 1967-1970. Born in Berlin, Germany, Dr. Schlesinger arrived in the United States in February, 1940. One of the “Ritchie Boys,” a group of young, mostly Jewish, immigrants who joined the US Army and he was specially trained in methods of psychological warfare at the former Camp Ritchie, Maryland.
Assigned to the Counter Intelligence Corps and imbedded with Allied troops, Dr. Schlesinger was heavily involved at the Battle of the Bulge and Remagen Bridge helping to break German resistance in both open and covert operations, later interrogating Nazi officials and camp guards in preparation for trial at Nuremberg. At Plymouth State University, Dr. Schlesinger chaired the Sidore lectures for several years from its inception and enthusiastically worked with the Model United Nations Program. He served on the boards of the World Affairs Council of NH and the NH Civil Liberties Union. Event speakers will include current and former Plymouth State University faculty and former students of Dr. Schlesinger.

Shepherd’s Hut Market opens for second season
GILFORD — Since opening its doors in July, the Shepherd’s Hut Market at Ramblin’ Vewe has earned a reputation for farm fresh eggs, freezer lamb, and fresh locally grown garden vegetables, along with a photographic note cards, many of them shot at Ramblin’ Vewe Farm. Now entering its second year, the market is open Saturdays from 10 a.m.2 p.m. and by appointment. “The intention of this shop is to serve not only as a retail market, but also as a welcome center to the farm and its walking trails, and this year we’re excited to extend it’s purpose to become a place to learn all about wool and the wonderful things that can be done with it,” says owner Joyce Keyser. When Ramblin’ Vewe Farm Trust, managers of the sheep farm, decided to permit the market to open its doors as a farmer’s market there was an agreement that part of the goal was to promote the sheep indus-
try with educational opportunities centered on sheep and wool. Being married to Ramblin’ Vewe Farm’s long time shepherd, Jeff Keyser, Joyce has been exposed to the delights of spring shearing season and intrigued by all the things that can be done with wool. On Saturday, April 28 there will be a felting workshop – wet and dry felting will be taught for a modest fee to cover materials. Attendees will be able to learn several fun hands-on crafts that include making an exfoliating soap cover. Needle felting will be demonstrated and participants will have an opportunity to try their hand at this fun and easy craft. Plans are also in the works for workshops and demonstrations in natural dying, spinning, weaving, fleece skirting and the washing and combing of wool in preparation to felt or spin. For questions or more information, call Joyce at 527-1873. You may also E-mail her at jekeyser@ metrocast.net.

LACONIA — The Junior High Religion classes from Holy Trinity School went on a field trip on Sunday March 25 to York, Maine. The first stop was at the York House of Pizza followed by an exploration of the Nubble Light House. The students became marine explorers on all the rocks and caves that are on the mainland near the lighthouse and learned about the bucket used to transport the children of the former
lighthouse keepers to the mainland for school each morning. The highlight of the trip was the live musical presentation of the Life and Passion of Christ presented by about 125 of the parishioners of St. Christopher Church in York, called “To God be the Glory”. The dramatic portrayal of the Gospel stories was an inspiration to all in preparation for the upcoming Easter celebration which is the most important feast of the Christian Church.
LACONIA — Five of New Hampshire’s ten Community Mental Health Centers (CMHCs) recently received a $25,000 grant from the Cogswell Benevolent Trust to support implementation of a shared Electronic Health Record (EHR) system. Project partners include: Genesis Behavioral Health, Seacoast Mental Health Center, Greater Nashua Mental Health Center, Monadnock Family Services, and Northern Human Services. Noting federal regulations require all healthcare organizations to implement an EHR by 2015, Maggie Pritchard, executive director of Genesis Behavioral Health in Laconia, said support from Cogswell Benevolent Trust comes at a critical time. “The next twelve to eighteen months represent the largest portion of the costs associated with this project,” said Pritchard. “Given CMHCs were not provided with access to any incentive funds to defray any of these costs, we must seek grant funding.” Citing a $125,000 grant from the Endowment for Health awarded last summer, Jay Couture, executive director of Seacoast Mental Health Center in Portsmouth, said this latest show
of financial support testifies to the strength of their collaboration. “This is a very complex project that involves nearly every employee from each agency,” said Couture. “I believe the Cogswell Benevolent Trust appreciates the collaborative nature of this project and understands what is at stake for mental health care in the state long-term. The five community mental health centers involved in this project are part of the NH Community Behavioral Health Association, an organization comprised of the ten community mental health centers throughout New Hampshire. These centers serve more than 52,200 individuals in our state living with—and recovering from—mental illness and emotional disorders. Genesis Behavioral Health is designated by the State of New Hampshire as the community mental health center serving Belknap and southern Grafton Counties. A private, nonprofit corporation, Genesis serves over 3,000 children, families, adults and older adults each year. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 603-524-1100 or visit the website at www.genesisbh.org.

By Holiday Mathis to assess the motive behind it. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’re not one to look back, and yet you can’t help thinking about what you almost had. Second chances abound as long as you realize what you missed out on and are willing to try again. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You like to see things well done, whether or not you’re the one doing them. Your moneymaking faculties will be put to good use as you gather up the opportunities that others miss. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll love the casual way in which you connect with those you’ve known for a long while. It’s easy and effortless, just the way you like it. Take this as a sign that these are the right people for you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). What you name things will matter a great deal. Decide on a name that will make people wonder. Give others the gift of mystery, and they’ll give you the gift of curiosity. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A certain successful person you know will be more than pleased to help you become successful, too. Asking in the right way will be key. You’ll be guided by the spirit of humility and realism.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Thursday, April 19, the 110th day of 2012. There are 256 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 19, 1912, a special subcommittee of the Senate Commerce Committee opened hearings in New York into the Titanic disaster. (The hearings, which were subsequently moved to Washington, D.C., concluded on May 28.) On this date: In 1012, Alphege, Archbishop of Canterbury, was slain by Danish invaders in Greenwich, England, after refusing to allow himself to be ransomed. In 1775, the American Revolutionary War began with the battles of Lexington and Concord. In 1861, a week after the Civil War began, President Abraham Lincoln authorized a blockade of Southern ports. In 1943, during World War II, tens of thousands of Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto began a valiant but ultimately futile battle against Nazi forces. In 1951, Gen. Douglas MacArthur, relieved of his Far East command by President Harry S. Truman, bid farewell in an address to Congress in which he quoted a line from a ballad: “Old soldiers never die; they just fade away.” In 1966, Bobbi Gibb became the first woman to run in the Boston Marathon, which at that time did not allow women to participate. (Gibb jumped into the middle of the pack after the sound of the starting pistol and finished in 3:21:40.) In 1967, Kathrine (cq) Switzer became the first woman to run the Boston Marathon under an official number by registering without mentioning her gender; by her own estimate, she finished in 4 hours and 20 minutes. (Bobbi Gibb, again running unofficially, finished in 3:27:17.) In 1982, astronauts Sally K. Ride and Guion S. Bluford Jr. became the first woman and first African-American to be tapped for U.S. space missions. In 1993, the 51-day siege at the Branch Davidian compound near Waco, Texas, ended as fire destroyed the structure after federal agents began smashing their way in; dozens of people, including sect leader David Koresh, were killed. In 1995, a truck bomb destroyed the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, killing 168 people. (Bomber Timothy McVeigh was later convicted of federal murder charges and executed.) In 2005, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger of Germany was elected pope in the first conclave of the new millennium; he took the name Benedict XVI. One year ago: Cuba’s Communist Party picked 79-year-old Raul Castro to replace his ailing brother Fidel as first secretary during a key Party Congress. Today’s Birthdays: Actor Hugh O’Brian is 87. Actress Elinor Donahue is 75. Rock musician Alan Price is 70. Actor Tim Curry is 66. Pop singer Mark “Flo” Volman is 65. Actor Tony Plana is 60. Former tennis player Sue Barker is 56. Former race car driver Al Unser Jr. is 50. Singer-songwriter Dar Williams is 45. Actress Ashley Judd is 44. Singer Bekka Bramlett is 44. Actress Jennifer Esposito is 40. Actress Jennifer Taylor is 40. Jazz singer Madeleine Peyroux is 38. Actor James Franco is 34. Actress Kate Hudson is 33. Actor Hayden Christensen is 31. Actress Catalina Sandino Moreno is 31.

Huggins Hospital, Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice form partnership WOLFEBORO — Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice and Huggins Hospital have announced a new project called, “The Partnership for Better Care.” The pilot program, which is partnering with Internal Medicine Associates of Wolfeboro, will focus on helping people with chronic illness to better understand their symptoms, medications and life style changes to help them stay as healthy as possible. The program will work on developing better communication and links among the hospital, home care agency and the primary care practice to keep the patient the focus of the team. “Despite best efforts, there are still people who don’t get the help they need,”says Bette Coffey, branch director for Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice. “The hospital typically cares for acute health issues and the VNA typically cares for individuals who need their care at home. What about the individual with a serious chronic illness who isn’t sick enough to go to the hospital and doesn’t necessarily qualify for home healthcare? That person can still benefit from our help, especially if they want to stay out of the hospital.’’ Susan Dionne, VP of Nursing at Huggins Hospital, believes this partnership is a natural and logical CALENDAR from preceding page

choice stating, “It makes perfect sense to partner with Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice. We find that a large number of hospital readmissions happen because of issues during an individual’s transition in healthcare. A closer partnership between the hospital, Visiting Nurse Association and primary care physicians will mean better care for our clients.”
The Partnership for Better Care has already enrolled its first patient and expects to be able to serve those individuals who can benefit most from the program. Margaret Franckhauser, Chief Executive Officer for Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice, explains “we hope to be able to learn from our patients how we can better manage their care.”
LACONIA — Wilkins-Smith Post 1, The American Legion, annually sponsors high school juniors to separate programs called Boys State and Girls State. These are separate five-day programs, where interested juniors (heading to their senior year) will become familiarized with local, county, and state government operations. It has been described as “a week that
shapes a lifetime” by those who have attended. Applications are available at all local high school guidance offices and must be received at Concord by May 26. Applications should also be available on line at: www.nhboysstate.org for the Boys State application. Beginning this year there is a $25 application fee to assure us that the student is committed. The $300 course fee is paid by the Post.
Boys State, Girls State applications are available

Pike Industries urges drivers to increase awareness around construction sites BELMONT – With the onset of spring and increased construction activities on the New Hampshire highways, representatives of Pike Industries urged motorists to increase awareness and use extra caution while driving in the vicinity of highway construction sites. “New Hampshire will undertake a number of road projects this year that will improve road safety and commerce for the driving public,” said Christian Zimmermann, president of Pike Industries. “Pike employees are doing their part to build and improve the roads and bridges we all depend on, and it is crit-
ical that New Hampshire motorists keep them safe by obeying posted speed limits, putting cell phones away and using extra caution in work zone areas.” Zimmermann said safety is a priority for Pike Industries and it’s employees, and that changes in signage, work zone design and increased driver awareness have contributed to reduced work zone accidents and injuries in recent years. However, he said speed and distracted drivers remain a concern for workers. “The people working on these road projects are our neighbors, friends and relatives, and we all need
to ensure they return safely to their families each night,” said Zimmermann. National Work Zone Awareness Week, April 23-27, is an annual campaign held at the start of construction season to encourage safe driving through highway construction sites. It is observed across the country by state, local and federal transportation officials in April, the start of highway construction season across most of the country. For more information on National Work Zone Awareness Week, visit http://www.ops.fhwa.dot.gov/ wz/outreach/wz_awareness.htm.

Dear Annie: My 85-year-old uncle, a widower, spends several days a week at casinos. This is no penny-ante stuff. He gambled away everything he ever owned and had to move into subsidized housing. He is somewhat fatalistic at this point, figuring he won’t live much longer and so he wants to have fun. While we recognize his right to spend his money as he pleases, bank statements indicate he is now using credit cards at the casinos. He has run up debt on at least three cards, making only the minimum payments to keep them active. He has no “estate” left to hold responsible for debts after his death and figures everything will be written off. He sees nothing ethically wrong with this. So, who will get stuck paying for the $20,000 in credit card debt when he dies? Who pays for the selfishness of his addiction? Why do credit card companies continue to raise credit limits for people his age, and how do they not notice that his charges are almost exclusively coming from gambling institutions? The casinos are no help getting him to stop. They send buses to pick him up. Is there anything I can do? -- Wish He Knew When To Fold ‘Em Dear Wish: If your uncle has no assets at the time of his death, the debt would likely be written off. He could arrange to have himself barred from entering casinos, but he obviously doesn’t want to be rescued from his addiction. Credit card companies are in the business of extending credit, and casinos are in the business of getting people to gamble. They aren’t going to be of assistance. You can contact Gam-Anon (gam-anon.org) for support, but understand that this becomes your problem only if your uncle gambles himself into destitution earlier than expected and you end up taking care of him. There’s no point to being angry and frustrated. You don’t have to admire your uncle, but you can learn to accept him as he is.
Dear Annie: My 2-year-old daughter still sleeps with my husband and me in our bed, and this obviously is putting a damper on our sex life. We have placed a “big girl bed” in our bedroom, but she won’t use it. So we let her fall asleep in our bed and then transfer her to her own. However, most of the time, it’s so late that we fall asleep without moving her. Or, she wakes up in the middle of the night, and my husband puts her back in our bed. Any suggestions? -- Want My Privacy Dear Want: Your daughter has learned that she is entitled to sleep with Mommy and Daddy. If you want a different result, you will need to work at it. You cannot simply fall asleep because you’re tired, or let her sleep with you because it’s easier than training her to sleep in her own bed (preferably in her own room). This is simple behavior modification. You will need to place her in her bed repeatedly. She’s going to cry repeatedly. Be firm and insistent, but not angry. It will take a long time to get her to change her sleep habits, and every time you give in, you’ll be starting over from scratch. Talk to your pediatrician about it, and make sure your husband is on board. Dear Annie: “Frazzled” said her husband had an affair 30 years ago and now has a 17-year-old daughter from that union. Forget the morality of it. The scientific aspect is amazing! The fact that his sperm laid dormant for nearly 13 years is what’s really important. Find out how he did that, and you will be able to replace cryogenics and make a fortune. -- Curious Dave Dear Dave: Very funny. For the math obsessed, “Frazzled” said her husband had a “long-term affair” with a 16-year-old girl that began 30 years ago. If the affair lasted 13 years and he broke things off when she became pregnant, the daughter could easily be 17 now.
