Gilford School Board preparing for Monday night presentation in defense of continuing to employ a superintendent

GILFORD — The School Board will formally present on Monday night its position on the recent passage of a controversial warrant article which some believe compels the School District to reorganize without the inclusion of a traditional superintendent. The meeting, which will begin at 6 p.m., will be held at the Gilford High School Library instead of the SAU office, where the board typically meets. The change of location allows more room for public attendance. Kurt Webber, board chair, had stated at a board meeting on March 22 that the board would soon release a official statement detailing why it intends to continue its current form of organization. However, he said yesterday that the board’s statements on the matter had been criticized for being “one-sided,” and the decision to instead present its position at a public meeting was intended to accommodate a “discussion” including those who are anticipated to bring differing interpretations of the events. see GILFOrd page 11

LACONIA — After more than 1,000 tons of solid waste were recycled last year, the recycled tonnage continued to climb in the first quarter of this year. In the first three months of the year 264.68 tons of recyclables were collected compared to 225.91 tons during the same period a year ago, an increase of 38.77 tons or 17-percent. Curbside collection rose

CENTER HARBOR — The Board of Directors of the New Hampshire Music Festival has voted to sell the organizations property here. The asking price is $1,695,000. Board Chairman Ronald I. Sibley made the announcement on Friday, saying an initial decision to sell, last year, by the board was temporarily put on hold until economic conditions improved. Incorporators, volunteers and donors were informed during the annual meeting last fall that the sale was pending. Sibley said that at its most recent meeting in March, the board decided it was time for the property to be marketed so it could be available during the warmer months. The Festival purchased the expansive, estate style, 60-acre property located at 52 Symphony Lane in 2000, with the ultimate goal to build see MusIC FEstIVaL page 9

Spanish police arrest man who twice escaped via faxes from his wife

MADRID (AP) — Spanish police say they have arrested a man who twice escaped from custody by having his wife send fake faxes ordering his release. F i f t y - s e v e n - y e a rold Jose Carlos Serna was taken into custody at his home in San Lorenzo del Escorial, a suburb north of Madrid, on Friday, while hiding in a hollowed-out sofa, police said. In December, he was in a cell at Arganda del Rey courthouse awaiting trial when officers got a fax purportedly from a regional court. It was followed by a phone call purportedly from a court official, corroborating the release order. Officers tried to verify the order, but their calls went unanswered. When they received a second call confirming Serna’s release, he was freed to a waiting taxi. Both calls came from his wife, Gema Maria Serna, whom police tracked down to a house in the northern suburb and arrested on March 3. It was not the first time Serna used the see ESCAPE page 8

Stocks rise as unemployment dips to 2-year low NEW YORK (AP) — A drop in the unemployment rate to a two-year low sent stocks higher Friday. The Labor Department said the unemployment rate fell to 8.8 percent, the lowest since March 2009, as companies added workers at the fastest two-month pace since before the recession began. Approximately 216,000 new jobs were created last month, offsetting layoffs by local governments. Economists had expected the unemployment rate to remain at 8.9 percent. “We are clearly seeing a breakout in the labor market,” said Paul Zemsky, the head of asset allocation at ING Investment Management. “The jobless recovery is ending and we are moving into a job expansion stage of the economy.” The report helped send the Dow Jones industrial average to a new 2011 high

during early trading. Stocks then pared those gains in the afternoon as oil prices hit new 30-month highs. Crude oil jumped $1.22 to settle at $107.94. The Dow’s 100-point gain early in the day seemed unwarranted because the employment report was just slightly better than expected, said Jack Ablin, chief investment officer at Harris Private Bank in Chicago. “There’s a relief that the job gains were continuing, but it’s not a huge surprise,” he said. “It’s worth maybe 40 points on the Dow.” Stocks rose across the market. Eight of the 10 company groups that make up the S&P 500 index moved higher, led by a 0.9 percent rise in industrials shares. The Dow rose 56.99 points, or 0.5 percent, to 12,376.72. The average of 30 large company stocks gained 1.3 percent for the week. The Dow has already risen 6.9 percent this year. That’s the best start since 1999.

The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 6.58, or 0.5 percent, to 1,332.41. The Nasdaq composite rose 8.53, or 0.3 percent, to 2,789.60. All three indexes made gains for the second week in a row. The S&P 500 rose 1.42 percent and the Nasdaq 1.7 percent. “This jobs report shows that we are in the early stages of a sustainable recovery in employment, and that is what’s letting the market put the recent correction behind us,” said Phil Orlando, chief equity strategist at Federated Investors. The Institute of Supply Management reported a slight slowing in manufacturing growth during March. The trade group’s index of manufacturing activity slipped to 61.2 from February’s 61.4. The drop was largely expected after manufacturing hit its highest level since May 2004 during February.

BOSTON (AP) — Former Boston Red Sox general manager Lou Gorman, the architect of the team that came within one strike of winning the 1986 World Series, died early Friday morning of congestive heart failure. He was 82. “All he wanted to do was make it to Opening Day, and he made it,” said his nephew, Tom Dougherty, who answered the phone at Gorman’s Weston home. “He lived a great life. And he was truly one of the nicest men you ever wanted to meet.” Gorman died peacefully at 1:50 a.m. after

an illness of almost a year, surrounded by his family at Massachusetts General Hospital, Dougherty said. “Lou Gorman was a giant in our industry,” current general manager Theo Epstein said shortly before the Red Sox were scheduled to open their season against the Texas Rangers. “We’ll dearly miss this good, humble man who leaves an unmistakable legacy on the Red Sox and major league baseball.” James “Lou” Gorman was the Red Sox general manager from 1984-93, building

the 1986 AL championship team led by Roger Clemens, Wade Boggs, Jim Rice and Dwight Evans that was one strike away from winning the World Series. It wasn’t until 2004 that the Red Sox finally won it all and ended what had become an 86-year title drought. “Lou Gorman was a legendary figure in the game of baseball,” Red Sox owner John W. Henry said. “Over the course of a career that spanned five decades, Lou helped to build winning teams across the see GORMAN page 9

N.H. GOP House leader labels Catholic bishop a ‘pedophile pimp’ CONCORD (AP) — The Republican leader of the New Hampshire House on Friday called Roman Catholic Bishop John McCormack a “pedophile pimp” who should have been led from the Statehouse in handcuffs after speaking at a rally criticizing a state budget proposal. McCormack was among about a dozen speakers at Thursday’s rally to protest deep cuts to social services included in the House’s $10.2 billion budget. Rep. D.J. Bettencourt of Salem took issue Friday, writing on his Facebook page that McCormack had no business urging lawmakers to protect the vulnerable, given his role in the clergy sex abuse scandal in the last decade. Before being named bishop of Manchester in 1998, McCormack served as a top aide to Cardinal Bernard Law in Boston, where the Catholic sex abuse scandal began and where he was in charge of investigating sexual misconduct allegations. In 2002, McCormack averted unprecedented criminal charges against the New Hampshire diocese by agreeing that it had harmed children by moving abusive priests from parish to parish. “Would the Bishop like to discuss his history of protecting the ‘vulnerable?’” Bettencourt wrote. “This man is a pedophile pimp who should have been led away from the State House in handcuffs with a rain coat over his head in disgrace. He has absolutely no moral credibility to lecture anyone.” A spokesman for the diocese said Bettencourt’s comments were false, defamatory and detracted from the real issue — the state’s obligation to care for the poor. “Bishop McCormack’s message to the people of

New Hampshire yesterday was the simple message of the gospels: The church and our broader society have a fundamental obligation to care for the poor,” Kevin Donovan said. Bettencourt stood by his comments later Friday. “Yes, my language was colorful, but I stand by the sentiment in describing a Rep. D.J. Bettencourt man who has in my opinion brought shame and dishonor on my church here in New Hampshire,” he said in a statement. “As a practicing Catholic it is truly disappointing that we would have a leader with a record of enabling such egregious and unacceptable behavior.” The Washington-based group Catholics United said it would continue to pressure Bettencourt to retract his statements. “With his comments, Republican Majority Leader D.J. Bettencourt has not only embarrassed himself, he’s become an embarrassment to the entire state of New Hampshire,” said James Salt, the group’s acting director. We call on all elected officials to denounce Republican Bettencourt’s comments in the strongest terms possible.” As required under church rules, McCormack sent a resignation letter to the Vatican last summer when he turned 75, but he has remained in office while awaiting formal recognition. Under the 2002 agreement he reached with the state, prosecutors agreed to not seek criminal indict-

ments against the diocese for failing to protect children from molesting priests. In return, the diocese agreed to enact strict child protection policies, admitted its actions had harmed children and opened itself to audits by the attorney general’s office. Over the years, McCormack has acknowledged that he made mistakes and that he did not adequately help victims. When the final audit was released in 2009, then-Attorney General Kelly Ayotte said the church had made dramatic policy changes to protect children, but she recommended further improvements to which the diocese quickly agreed. During his speech at the rally, McCormack urged lawmakers to pass a budget that is “just and meets the needs the needs of the most vulnerable in our society.” “We urge the legislature and the governor to place the poor, the unemployed, and our most vulnerable citizens first. Our commitment to human solidarity, the dignity of human labor and justice for the weak and marginalized demands no less,” McCormack told the crowd. Republican House Speaker William O’Brien defended Bettencourt, saying that while he would have used different words, he shares Bettencourt’s belief that McCormack did not properly protect children. “I certainly agree with the concerns. I don’t agree with the language or the implication of the language,” said O’Brien, of Mont Vernon. O’Brien, also a Catholic, said he would not discipline Bettencourt. “He is an invaluable asset to the state of New Hampshire,” he said. The House passed the budget proposal but it has yet to move through the Senate.

State still seeking ‘black box’ info to convict Meredith man of negligent homicide By Bea Lewis

THE CITIZEN OF LACONIA

LACONIA — Efforts to prosecute a Meredith man for negligent homicide in connection with a fatal motor vehicle accident remain stalled while the state continues to seek information from Chrysler and Bosch, the manufacturer of the vehicle’s socalled black box. Donald E. Thompson, 50, of 24 Winton Rd., Meredith, was the sole witness to the July 24, 2009, crash that killed Deborah Jean Howard, 42, of Campton, a teacher with the Newfound Area School District and a former Miss New Hampshire. Thompson was indicted in February 2010 on alter-

When did we declare war on Libya? Now that Benghazi has been spared what we were assured would be a massacre by Moammar Gadhafi’s army, why are the U.S. Air Force, Navy, CIA and Special Forces still attacking in Libya? If our objective was to spare the defenseless people of Benghazi from slaughter, why, mission accomplished, did we not stop bombing? Why are we plunging deeper in? Did Gadhafi attack us? Did he attack a NATO country, thereby triggering Article 5 of the treaty requiring us to go to war? Have his forces carried out massacres of such magnitude in recaptured towns and cities as to morally mandate our humanitarian intervention? Where? What has Gadhafi done in any rebel city that has fallen to him to compare with what Syria’s Hafez al-Assad did in Hama, when he rolled up his artillery in 1982 and slaughtered between 10,000 and 20,000 to teach the Moslem Brotherhood a lesson in loyalty? Not a decade after Hama, Assad was the welcome ally of George H.W. Bush in Desert Storm. With Benghazi secure, by what right did we attack the Libyan soldiers defending Ras Januf, Brega and Sirte? What crimes were they committing by defending their cities from rebel attack and their government from being overthrown by force and violence? Is this not what all soldiers take an oath to do? None of this is written in defense of Gadhafi, a loathsome man and murderer of innocents, but to ask: Why is this small civil war in a North African desert country America’s war? The White House will not even concede America is at war. And understandably so. For that would trigger follow-up questions. If we are at war with Libya, who started it? What was the casus belli requiring us to go to war? Did Libyan troops attack U.S. citizens or ships in the Mediterranean? Who is the aggressor in this war? The truth: America is fighting another war of choice in Libya, and this one without any constitutional sanction. Congress not only did not declare this war, Congress was not even consulted. Yet, once begun, wars create new political realities. Now that Obama and Hillary Clinton have declared that Gadhafi must go, and U.S. military power has been put massively in on the side of the rebels, Gadhafi cannot win without Obama losing face and the United States being humiliated. Saving Obama’s face and preserving our superpower image may be the cause for which we kill a number of Libyans who did nothing to us. There is, however, a more compel-

ling reason Gadhafi must go. Should he survive our drive to dethrone and kill him with that cruise missile into his compound the first night of our attack, he is likely to return the favor, as he did at Lockerbie after Ronald Reagan’s 1986 attack on his compound. Should Gadhafi retain power at the end of this war, with friends and family dead, how safe will U.S. airliners be on the North Atlantic run? If, as Reagan rightly said, Gadhafi is the “mad dog of the Middle East,” can you leave such a wounded and rabid animal alive? Our intervention raises other questions that should have been asked and answered before Obama plunged us into this civil war. Absent some lucky air or cruise missile strike, how do we remove him from power? How do we declaw him so we do not awaken some morning to a horrific reprisal on U.S. citizens for what we did to him? The rebel army is not up to it. It did not just retreat from Sirte after tribal forces joined the Libyan army to repel them. It fled in a Mad Max rout, abandoning town after town until some rebels had fled all the way back to Benghazi. Even with the United States and NATO imposing a no-fly and nodrive zone on Gadhafi’s army, the rebel army is not a force that can march to Tripoli and depose him. And it is unlikely to become such a force anytime soon. The rebels lack the arms, training, equipment and numbers to march 600 miles and capture and hold half a dozen towns along the way against hostile tribes and Libyan troops. Who, then, is going to do it? Obama has said we will not put boots on the ground. But if we don’t put U.S. advisers in, who will train, arm and lead the rebels? The Germans and Turks want no part of this war. The most bellicose allies, Britain and France, had a hellish time in Bosnia before the Americans came and pulled their chestnuts out of the fire. As for the Arab League, Qatar has sent a few planes, but where is the Egyptian army, half a million strong and right next door? Why is Arabs fighting Arabs an American rather than an Arab problem? The truth: There is no “international community.” There is Uncle Sam. He does it, or it does not get done. (Syndicated columnist Pat Buchanan has been a senior advisor to three presidents, twice a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination and the presidential nominee of the Reform Party in 2000. He won the New Hampshire Republican Primary in 1996.)

LETTERS This 1.7% cut in the national budget isn’t extreme, it’s inadequate To the editor, Every child knows which parent to approach for permission to do something risky, expensive, inappropriate, or too impractical. The parent who says “No” is called “mean”, “uncaring“, “selfish”, etc. Some marriages have problems because over-spending threatens financial disaster, e.g., eviction, inability to purchase real needs like food and health insurance. Sometimes one spouse stands up to avoid the disaster, slashes expenses, sells expensive toys, cancels unessential services, etc. Family members enjoying the excess spending may call these cuts “extreme” and the responsible parent “mean”, “uncaring“, “selfish”, etc. Across our country city, state, and federal governments have recklessly over-spent and over-committed future spending. Some cities and states cannot pay their bills and face painful austerity remedies. Daily, our federal government adds $4-billion to our debt which approaches the level that caused crises in Greece and Ireland, and is forcing harsh austerity programs elsewhere to avoid similar disasters. Planned deficits on top of our current $14+ trillion national debt could inspire a return to normal interest rates, driving interest costs near $1-trillion annually. Our country is approaching financial disaster that could quickly cause a great drop in our standard of living, slashing the value of people’s incomes, benefits, savings, homes, and other assets. No one ever wants parties to end, but the recovery and clean-up from reckless

parties can be painful. And, ending the reckless partying and cleaning up the mess is the assignment given by the American people to our elected representatives last November. This assignment will not be easy. New Hampshire legislators must close this year’s $100-million budget gap and an $800-million budget gap next year. Federal legislators face a $1.65-trillion deficit this year and at least $1-rillion deficits for the foreseeable future. If you took every dollar from every rich American, you could not pay off our debts and commitments. And, you still would not have stopped the reckless over-spending. To solve the problem, our legislators must slash spending. Like the responsible spouse struggling to save the family from disaster, legislators struggling to cut government spending will be called “mean”, “uncaring“, “selfish”, etc. Republican proposals to cut $61-billion from the $3.6-trillion federal budget have already been called “extreme”. This 1.7-percent cut is not extreme, it is inadequate! But, it is a start. The proposed Democrat cut which apparently is up to $20-billion is a meaningless 0.6-percent. The needed spending cuts may sting some, but they will avoid a very painful financial disaster. Our legislators are addressing a nearly impossible task, they deserve our support, our encouragement, and our thanks. Don Ewing Meredith

Don’t mind a fine of 1-million times my tax because it’s still zero To the editor, Okay, I finally got all my tax data together, but haven’t received the needed 1040 forms. Searching online I find the government is saving money by no longer mailing out tax forms. Then I found I could only download instruction forms. Could someone inform me how they expect us to get the needed forms, or is Obama’s goal to make us ALL late in filing, so they

Retired, with no income, I have not needed to pay IRS taxes for many years, but still must file a return (even when the instructions say I don’t need to). I don’t mind a fine of 1,000,000 times the tax, which is still zero, but IRS doesn’t work that way. Maybe this is the year for no one to file tax returns, since no forms provided, and let the IRS dissolve! Jack Stephenson

LETTERS You really want higher ed to be controlled by one set of beliefs? To the editor, I am writing in response to Russ Wiles’ letter on April 1. I will defer his questions to my students, who can better answer how I teach since they are ones who are in the most advantageous position to do so. I can only say that I write and teach because I have more questions than answers about the world. It seems to me that Mr. Wiles has more answers than questions but I could be wrong. Although Mr. Wiles waxes eloquently in his letter, there are some flaws in his argument. First of all, Steyn did not mention culling radical, Muslim terrorists. He put all Muslims into a single category. Had he said that, an argument could have been made in a different way. For example, how do we know that we are only culling this specific group and not Muslims who just want to live their lives in peace. In fact, the U.S. is probably going to send Pakistan into radical Muslim hands because of all the innocent civilians that our drones have killed. Peaceful Muslims are not safe because of the way that people like Mr. Wiles thinks. Likewise, Americans aren’t safe because there are Muslims who also think like Mr. Wiles does. This may be the kind of world that Mr. Wiles wants to live in but not I. I would urge him to use his eloquence in pursuit of peace instead of dwelling on the tired, old us versus them paradigm that does nothing but create enemies. Culling is a messy business because you can’t avoid harming innocent people. Wolves cull deer and they take down the old and sick thereby strengthening the herd. Bombs, however, cull populations of people indiscriminately and they even result in “friendly fire”. Eight out of 10 casualties in war are civilians. I urge Mr. Wiles to look up what

multiculturalism really means so he can understand it better. When we reach out to those who are different and celebrate these differences , it doesn’t mean giving up our own American identity unless that identity is fragile in the first place. People respond better to honey than to vinegar. Strident attitudes and behavior will not win converts. They just make people dig in. So if we want moderate Muslims to lose their fear of extremist Muslims and stand up to them, we have to find ways to engage them in positive ways. I try to do that by my involvement in the Pakistani Educational Leadership Institute during the summer. As far as academic freedom goes, fascists, communists, totalitarians and authoritarians are against it because of the tendency of academics to question traditional beliefs and policies. Galileo did this and look what happened to him. Mr. Wiles needs to be careful what he wishes for if he does not want to end up in the company of people like this. Does he really want higher education to be controlled by a prescribed set of beliefs that are written in stone? Another reason I became a professor, is because my professors didn’t lie to me about the world. Before college I was given a sanitized view of the world that didn’t square with what I learned in college. I trust people who tell the truth. I am not always sure where to find the truth but I know where not to find it. Only in an atmosphere of open inquiry can the truth be found. The university that Mr. Wiles dreams of exists in North Korea and Iran. I would also like to correct Mr. Wiles’ analysis of my political position. I don’t consider myself a liberal because I find that position too conservative. Leo R. Sandy New Hampton

We’ll be effective stewards of your investment in mental health To the editor, As town meeting season comes to a close, all of us at Genesis Behavioral Health are grateful for the generous appropriations we received from so many of the towns we serve. These are challenging times for all of us, and we know that the municipalities and the voters had a difficult job to do. Your generosity was notable, particularly during a year when community mental health centers such as Genesis are facing potentially devastating budget cuts. These cuts will directly affect our ability to serve the indigent and Medicaid recipients in our communities. The appropriation you made to Genesis Behavioral Health will help us provide Emergency Services to any resident of your town who is experiencing a mental health crisis. Currently, we are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to provide crisis intervention, regardless of an individual’s ability to pay. The funding we receive from towns alle-

viates the deficit we incur as a result of providing this round the clock program to our communities. To the towns of Alton, Belmont, Bristol, Center Harbor, Ellsworth, Gilford, Gilmanton, Groton, Hebron, Holderness, Meredith, New Hampton, Plymouth, Rumney and Thornton — thank you for investing in us! We will be effective stewards of your investment, and we look forward to working with you to ensure mental health services are available for every resident of your community. (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, non-profit corporation, Genesis serves over 3,300 individuals each year. For more information, call 524-1100 ext. 445 or visit the website at www.genesisbh.org.) Margaret M.

LETTERS You’d think we were asking Obama to undergo major surgery To the editor, I have been watching events unfold in the Middle East and can’t help wonder how this will all turn out. Our current president does not seem at all on top of events and when something happens like the revolt in Libya he seems to dither and diddle about unable to decide what to do. His supporters claim he is being thoughtful and responsible however that seem less the case to me and more that he is in so far over his head that he resorts to going golfing rather then dealing with the stress of an international crisis. Not since Jimmy Carter has our chief executive looked so lost. It certainly lends credibility to those who said he was to inexperienced for the job back when Obama was just a candidate. After writing these words I expect to hear from many on the left, outraged that I should be so critical and telling everyone how wrong I am. Perhaps I’m wrong but it’s just the way it looks to me, and I’ll admit I’m no fan of the president. I do wish those on the left would keep at least some sort of openness in their thinking and not just react with a knee-jerk reaction to anything that even sounds critical of the man. Still I suppose I’m asking a lot from those who derided everyone in the Tea Party as racists because we objected to the incredible spending this president oversaw. Not to mention how they have reacted to anyone who has dared ask for the man’s birth certificate. You’d think they were asking him to undergo a major sur-

gery or something. John McCain had to provide a long-form certificate all because he was born in Panama while his father was stationed there when in the Navy. I have been keeping an open mind on that issue expecting that the president was born in Hawaii as was presented but I have just seen a very troubling video on you tube which gives me pause for thought. I invite readers to check this out at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mw hKuunp8D8&feature=player I have no tech abilities or experience so am not in any position to make an informed judgment on this but I will say that it doesn’t appear to be doctored in any way. It is smooth and steady still amazing things are being done with electronics and recordings these days and perhaps someone out there with expertise on these things could verify the authenticity or debunk it if it’s a fraud. When things like this appear it’s no wonder people have questions and I freely admit I’m troubled deeply by it. This brings up an interesting question. IF, and I say if this, or any president, should be proved to have been ineligible elected what would be the effects of such a finding? How would his or her position be resolved and what about laws, treaty’s, and policy’s, how valid or invalid would they be? Just something to think about. Perhaps the question will stir some interesting responses? Steve Earle Hill

Letters from Shaheen & Ayotte could have been written by Monsanto To the editor, Let us value non-human life. The Japanese nuclear plant accident reporting counts it as a “save” to humans that the radiated water lost from the power plants is flowing into the sea, maybe 3,000 times higher in radioactivity than good science would allow. Well, what about the fish? What about the sea mammals? What about the kelp harvested by humans but also sea creatures’ food? What about bees in the face of Monsanto’s successful drive for permission to sell genetically-modified alfalfa seed? Both my Democraticparty Senator, Shaheen, and my Republican-party Senator, Ayotte, sent me replies to my query about this Monsanto product that has beekeepers and organic farmers under Monsanto’s boot. Shaheen’s letter and Ayotte’s were so alike that I suspect Monsanto supplies them with sample letters for constituents. Neither letter

acknowledges my concern for our necessary pollinators, the bees. Apparently neither senator inquired why Monsanto wants GM alfalfa rights. They need it so they can spread the powerful poison, Roundup, where the alfalfa will be planted. The GM alfalfa will grow despite the Roundup. What about the bees? They get poisoned. What about wildlife? On NHPR I heard a concerned citizen from Wyoming voice that “the wildlife has little place left to be” in Wyoming, while intense energy-harvest is happening, pushed harder now by President Obama. I hope some election I can vote for an environmentalist presidential candidate. Remember when Vaclav Havel, poet, was elected president of the Czech Republic in 1993? We’d be blessed to have an environmentalist national leader some day, if it’s not too late. Lynn Rudmin Chong Sanbornton

The score was Republicans 10 & Conservatives 8; taxpayers lost To the editor, Last night at 7 p.m, we, the “conservative six” delegates took our “whipping” and watched the successful 10 “Republican” delegates (the winners) chortle to each other as they voted in the County Commissioner’s budget, which eventually contained some 2.1-million more dollars in it than the current county budget. The County Commissioners had asked for an increase in county spending of some

can delegates removed $224,000, leaving an increase of “only” $2.1-million over this year’s budget. (The details are in today’s, April 1st, newspapers.) Looks like every municipality in Belknap County will be increasing the amount of tax money they have to collect, so they can send in some 2.1-million more dollars to the Belknap County Treasurer than they did for the current fiscal year. Rep. Bob Kingsbury

‘200 by 2020’ project begins; collaborative aims to tie Lakes Region employers into the education of a young workforce By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Last week seven local agencies launched “200 x 2020,” a collaborative effort to foster closer relationships between the education and business communities aimed at readying young people to join the workforce. The project is being undertaken by the Lakes Region United Way, Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce, NH Works, Belknap County Economic Development Council, Lakes Region Community College, Huot Technical Center and Laconia Shared Youth Vision Team. The aim of the initiative is to enroll at least 200 local businesses by 2020 in a program to provide local students access to a wide range of vocational, technical and occupational experiences throughout their school years in order to address the needs of the regional labor market in the future. More than three dozen representatives of local schools and businesses met at the Taylor Community’s Woodside building to introduce the initiative. Alan Robichaud, community development director of the Lakes Region United Way, opened the meeting by recalling that recently a scheduled job fair was cancelled for want of sufficient prospective employers, but suggested that a weakened but recovering economy offered an opportune setting to begin preparing for a more robust labor market. Ginger Dubois of NH Works, a program of the New Hampshire Department of Employment Security, noted that unemployment among 14 to 17 year olds wishing to work stood at

18-percent. She said that because of relatively high unemployment among adults, teenagers faced stiff competition for scarce jobs from more highly qualified and experienced applicants. Tara Fortner, a graduate assistant at Plymouth State University, presented the results of a survey of workforce preparedness and career development services and programs offered by regional schools. Altogether 25 of 49 schools, including eight high schools, responded to the survey. On the strength of the survey Fortner framed a series of recommendations for developing closer partnerships between schools and businesses. Businesses, she said, should offer students more opportunities for internships and apprenticeships as well as provide speakers and mentors. Firms should also help schools identify the knowledge and skills required for different occupations and develop courses of instruction to impart them. For their part, the schools should lend greater importance and designate more time and resources to “school-tocareer” activities. They should also require instruction in the knowledge and skills sought by employers. The group heard from Rhonda Hanaway and Chris Kelly of the Greater Meredith Career Partnership Program, which has enrolled approximately 50 businesses to offer a variety of opportunities to students since it began several years ago. Robichaud said that the meeting provided a strong start to a collaborative effort to “reintroduce the community to school-to-career initiatives.”

Bayard now chairing Meredith Planning Board MEREDITH — Bill Bayard has been chosen to succeed Herb Vadney as chairman of the Planning Board. Bayard, an economist with the New Hampshire Electric Cooperative, has served on the board for 15 years, the first five as an alternate member. For the past six years he has chaired the town’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP) Committee, a position he expects to surrender in light of his new responsibilities. Bayard is also

vice-chairman of the town’s Energy Committee and represents Meredith on the Lakes Region Planning Commission. Vadney chaired the Planning Board for the past decade before stepping down to run unopposed for the seat on the Board of Selectmen that opened with the retirement of Chuck Palm. Bayard said that with relatively few projects on the drawing board, “this is a nice time to learn.”

Familiar faces re-appointed to city boards LACONIA — The City Council this week made numerous re-appointments to municipal boards and commissions. Pamela Clark, Dorothy Duffy, and Mary Jane Hoey were all reappointed to the Heritage Commission, which oversees historical properties in the city. Wanda Tibbetts was reappointed as an alternate member and Charlie St. Clair, one of the original members, was named an alternate member at his request. Bob Selig and John Perley were

reappointed as trustees of the Laconia Public Library. Jim Rogato was reappointed to the Licensing Board, where he serves as chairman alongside Fire Chief Ken Erickson and Police Chief Mike Moyer. Mitch Hamel was reappointed to the Parks and Recreation Commission; Betty Ballantyne was reappointed to the Advisory Committee of the Putnam Lecture Fund; and Don Flanders was reappointed as trustee of the Trust Funds.

Gulbrandsen sworn in as Belknap County Attorney Laconia District Court Judge Jim Carroll administers the oath of office to new Belknap County Attorney Melissa Guldbrandsen of Alton at the county courthouse on Friday morning. Gulbrandsen was appointed by the Belknap County Convention to fill the remainder of the elected term of Carroll himself. He resigned when Governor John Lynch appointed him to the bench. (Alan MacRae/for the Laconia Daily Sun)

ESCAPE from page 2 trick on police. He escaped from Valdemoro jail in October using the same tools. He had been in prison for heading a gang that in 2008 kidnapped a Spanish businessman and held him captive in the southern Portuguese beach resort area of the Algarve. Since his last escape Serna had rented several houses, including the heavily fortified suburban home where he was arrested. Police said Serna had equipped the house with rein-

forced window protection and a secret entrance that could not be easily detected or approached. He had also hired a number of men to drive him around while pretending to be an Italian university professor. Officers broke in through a skylight to find Serna hidden, the police statement said. BLACK BOX from page 3 defense attorney James Moir meet and ensure that all discovery information from Chrysler and Bosch that the prosecution has received has been turned over to the defense. The court further allowed the state to keep trying to acquire the requested discovery information from Bosch. Another review hearing is to be scheduled. Moir has argued that the black box data may be skewed because multiple people attempted to retrieve the information, including the N.H. State Police, before it was finally successfully downloaded by Chrysler technicians In Auburn, Mich. Thompson stopped less than a half-mile after the collision allegedly occurred and called 911 to report that his air bag had deployed. Moir has said Thompson was unaware that another vehicle was involved.

MUSIC FESTIVAL from page one a world class concert hall. In spite of initial strong support from major donors, the plan did not come to fruition. The economic downturn in 2008 and 2009 was a major contributing factor to the decision to table building plans in 2010. In reaching the decision, the board determined that the construction costs for the facility would be too high and that there was insufficient endowment to operate and maintain the campus facility. Instead, the Festival will continue to present quality music at Silver Center for the Arts at Plymouth State University and Gilford Auditorium, as well as other venues. “A permanent home has long been a goal of the Festival, and we believe it may still come to pass when the time is right,” said Sibley. “The Festival continues to focus on presenting the finest in music and education programs serving New Hampshire’s communities.” The property has been listed with ColdwellBanker. Auctioneer Gary Wallace has been selected to handle the sale of furnishings and contents. Preparations are in place for the Festival concert season, July 5 – August 13, featuring inspiring 2011 Music Director, Benjamin Loeb and the prominent musicians from across the nation and world who make up the Festival Orchestra. This season will showcase the talents of Festival musicians along with gifted guest artists including Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Lisa Loeb, pianist Joel Fan, conductor JoAnn Falletta, conductor, singer, performer, Matt Catingub and more. The season will include four unique series: Classics, Pops, Chamber Music and a new Maestro and Friends Recital Series on Sunday afternoons featuring Benjamin Loeb and special guests. In the Cham-

ber Music Series, Festival Orchestra musicians will present their favorites from this intimate repertoire that has a special place on the mantle of great music. Classics concerts will be offered at Silver Center for the Arts in Plymouth on Thursday evenings and at Gilford Auditorium on Friday evenings. Founded in 1952, the New Hampshire Music Festival brings music performances to the Lakes Region and is well regarded for its artistic standards. As part of its educational work, the Festival sponsors programs throughout the year working with area schools. As a part of the Mostly Music Education Program, the Festival brings free community concerts to the Lakes Region each year. Upcoming Mostly Music Free Concert events include: Randy Armstrong World Fusion Music – Friday, April 22, 2011, Gilford Auditorium, 7 p.m.; Adrian Anantawan, violin and Benjamin Loeb, piano – Friday, May 13, 2010 – Laconia Congregational Church, 7 p.m.

GORMAN from page 2 sport, including the 1986 American League champion Red Sox.” Commissioner Bud Selig praised Gorman, who spent eight years in the U.S. military, as “A Navy man who became a baseball man.” “Lou was a perpetual optimist, a wonderful storyteller, and a contributor to many outstanding baseball causes,” Selig said. “On behalf of major league baseball, I extend my deepest condolences to Lou’s family and his many friends and admirers throughout the game of baseball.” The Red Sox were still formulating plans for a tribute, a spokeswoman said. A native of Rhode Island, Gorman helped launch the

expansion Seattle Mariners in 1976 and also worked for the Baltimore Orioles, Kansas City Royals and New York Mets. But his greatest success was with the 1986 Red Sox, who came back to beat the California Angels in the AL championship series in stunning fashion, then took a 3-2 lead over the Mets in the Series. Boston led 5-3 with two outs in the 10th inning, when Calvin Schiraldi and Bob Stanley coughed up the lead, then Mookie Wilson dribbled a slow roller toward Bill Buckner. The ball went through his legs for a Mets victory, and New York went on to win Game 7 as well. The title of his first book reflected how close he had come: “One Pitch From Glory: A Decade of Running the Red Sox.”

Page 10 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, April 2, 2011

An opening day to remember for salmon fishermen in downtown Laconia By AdAm drApcho LACONIA — Jim Makris was befuddled yesterday morning. He’s owned the Opechee Trading post near the Messer Street bridge for five and a half years, and every April 1, the waters outside his shop are filled with anglers celebrating the opening day of fishing for landlocked salmon and rainbow trout. Yesterday, though, he didn’t see a single one. No one fly fishing off his dock, no spin fishermen in boats or fishing from the bridge. “It’s bizarre, I’m really surprised,” he said. “I’m surprised there’s nobody out there.” As it turned out, there were people “out there.” However, instead of populating the typical hot-spot near Makris’s shop, on the bank of Lake Opechee, where it drains into the Winnipesakee River. Instead, they were on the other side of downtown, on the stretch of the river between the Main Street and Fair Street bridges, where the fish were hitting lures and bait as though they were making up for lost time. William McCoy of Meredith, by way of Ireland, was one of the many anglers, who were plying either bank of the river. He looked out the window this morning and had second thoughts until his friend, who was already at the river, called and told him the action was hot. “We fish in all kinds of weather,” he said.

Jim Daubensbeck traveled to Laconia from Boscawen. Yesterday was his first experience fishing for landocked salmon on April 1, and he was glad he did. He had two good-sized salmon in the snow, thanks to tips from Mike McCall, a fellow fly fisherman who told him how to trick the salmon in that river. “Just a friendly New Hampshire fisherman, willing to share a spot,” Daubensbeck said. McCall, of Manchester, could afford to be generous. He’d come up with a friend Mike Grant, an old

fishing buddy who grew up in Maine but now lives in Rhode Island. The two fly fish throughout the winter and shrugged off concerns about a snowy start to the salmon season. “We’ve had quite the day,” said McCall. He wasn’t kidding. McCall and Grant first stopped at the Merrimack River in Franklin, then came up to Laconia. Between the two of them, they estimated they had caught at least 30 salmon by lunch time, averaging 18 inches in length, releasing all but a few that had been injured from previous encounters. The fish had swum up the river from Lake Winnisquam, hoping to catch lunch in the river’s shallower, fast-moving waters. After they had caught their first two, Grant said, he and McCall figured they had already had a good day. The experience since then, he said, might be the best fishing they’ll have all season. “For landlocked, this is fantastic. I’m definitely quite happy.” Makris was glad to hear that the river was thick with happy anglers. Fishing, especially with tied flies, he said, is all about developing the expertise and technique necessary to trick a fish into thinking that a bit of colorful feathers on a string is a tasty insect or, in the case of salmon, a smaller fish. Then, once hooked, coaxing a large fish such as a salmon onto the shore is an added thrill. And if that wasn’t enough reward, Makris said, “There’s nothing wrong with a good salmon in the fry pan.”

RECYCLING from page one only 2-percent, from 146.41 tons to 149.36 tons , but recyclables taken to the three remote locations jumped from 79.5 tons to 115.32 tons, an increase of almost 36 tons, or 45-percent. The city pays a fixed price of $10,000 to collect recyclable materials regardless of tonnage. Therefore, every ton taken out of the waste stream and recycled reduces the cost of collecting, transporting and disposing of solid waste, which is funded

by property taxes, by $147.24 per ton. In the first quarter, recycling trimmed nearly $33,000 from the cost of collecting, transporting and disposing of solid waste as well as offset the cost of collecting recyclable materials with almost $3,000 to spare. During the five years from 2006 to 2010 the collection of recyclable materials has more than doubled, rising from 443.43 tons to 1,006.69 tons, an increase of 127-percent. However, the nearly 1,007 tons collected last year represents only 7-percent of all resi-

dential and commercial solid waste, which amount to about 14,000 tons a year. As a rule of thumb, 60-percent of all solid waste can be recycled. Ann Saltmarsh, who manages the recycling program at the Department of Public Works, said that while she is pleased by the steady increase in the number of households and businesses that choose to recycle, much more participation would result in correspondingly greater savings for property taxpayers.

Lester & Red Sox drop season opener in Texas, 9-5 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — David Murphy ran to first base looking out toward the left-field corner and expecting the ball to drop in foul territory. Except his slicing liner kicked up chalk for the Texas Rangers. Like so many times while winning their first American League championship a year ago, the Rangers pulled off an exhilarating comeback. “There isn’t anything changed with those guys,” manager Ron Washington said after a 9-5 win Friday over the Boston Red Sox in the season opener. Pinch-hitter Murphy’s tiebreaking, two-run double off hard-throwing Daniel Bard was part of a four-run outburst in the eighth for Texas, which before the game raised the AL championship flag. “My body language brought it back in. I was praying the ball would hit the chalk, and it did,” Washington said. “When it hit the chalk, I lost it.” Rangers newcomers Mike Napoli and Yorvit Torrealba ran home to break a 5-all tie. Murphy scored on a double by Elvis Andrus before another double by AL MVP Josh Hamilton. Napoli, Ian Kinsler and Nelson Cruz all homered for the Rangers, whose opener came exactly five months after a Game 5 loss to San Francisco at home ended its first World Series. The reloaded Red Sox, who added All-Stars Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford after missing the playoffs last season, blew leads of 2-0 and 4-2. “Every loss is frustrating. We’ve got 161 to go,” Kevin Youkilis said. “We know we’re better than we played today. There’s going to be a lot of games like GILFORD from page one The warrant article, included on the town ballot through a citizens’ petition, asked voters if the district should return to an organizational model developed in 1998, when Gilford withdrew from a Laconia-based SAU. That model did not include a superintendent’s position, educational leadership was to be shared by building principals and an noneducator was to look after business matters. “We’re going to present our side of the story,” Webber said, adding there will be a period for public feedback regarding the board’s presentation. “It will be an interesting meeting,” he said.

that this year, but hopefully not too many in a row.” Murphy pinch-hit for No. 9 batter Julio Borbon, the center fielder whose two-base error on the first play of the game led to the Red Sox scoring a pair of unearned runs. Borbon remained a starter even after five errors in 21 spring training games, a move that allows the Rangers to play Hamilton in left but relegates Murphy to the bench. “I do it for my teammates. I love my teammates,” said Murphy, who started 105 games last season. “Would I like to be included more? Yes. But if I continue to hit, I don’t think I should have a problem.” Bard said he made the exact pitch he wanted to Murphy. “Sinker down and away. It was on the knees, outer black,” Bard said. “He just barely got the bat to it. Three inches to the left and that’s a foul ball, and we’re having a different conversation.” Darren Oliver, the third Texas reliever, got the victory even after allowing a homer to David Ortiz in the top of the eighth that tied it at 5. Gonzalez had two hits and drove in three runs in his Boston debut. Crawford went 0 for 4 with three strikeouts while leaving a runner in scoring position each at-bat. Napoli pulled a pitch down the left-field line in the fourth for a three-run shot off left-hander Jon Lester, putting Texas up 5-4 and sending the sellout crowd of 50,146 into a frenzy. “When you’re making your debut, that’s what you want to do,” said Napoli, who walked in the eighth before Torrealba singled. “I did my part today to help us win. It’s a good start.”

Napoli played the last five seasons with the AL West rival Angels, though he was traded in January to Toronto, which four days later sent him to the Rangers for reliever Frank Francisco. Kinsler returned to the top of the Texas order where he primarily hit in 2009 and started the season with a homer to make it 2-1. That extended his team record with his 14th career leadoff homer. An inning later, Cruz hit a towering fly that dropped just behind the 14-foot wall in left. C.J. Wilson, who won a Rangers-best 15 games last year when he made the transition from the bullpen to the rotation, struck out six with two walks in 5 2-3 innings. The crafty left-hander gave up four runs. Lester gave up five runs over 5 1-3 innings. It was the first time in 125 career games he allowed three homers, and only the second time the lefty didn’t have a strikeout. Gonzalez broke the 2-all tie in the third with a two-out, two-run single. Boston’s Jacoby Ellsbury, who finished with two hits and scored twice, opened the game with a fly to right-center. Borbon knocked the ball away from right fielder Cruz as he was about to make the catch. “It was a very aggressive play on Borbon’s part. Cruz was camped,” Washington said. “It didn’t bother us. We gathered ourselves and kept playing baseball.” Ellsbury scored on a two-out double by Youkilis, and Gonzalez drove in a run in his first Red Sox at-bat before being thrown out trying to stretch his hit into a double.

The Garage Mahalic Spring is coming. NASCAR has fired up its engines, the sweet smell of racing fuel and burning rubber is in the air, and as the frost heaves recede gear heads begin to think about getting their prized street rod or motorcycle on the road. It’s a time when many men dream about a Garage Mahal. The fact is, put simply, men like (1) garages and (2) basements. You can’t generally reverse that order of preference unless there is a full blown man cave in the basement that includes a well stocked bar, a large flat-screen, and a leather couch. Men don’t care about closet space, the size of the bedrooms, or how fancy the kitchen is. But the bigger and fancier the garage is, the better. Real men care about things like where to store their stuff and where they can go to work on “a project.” Even if it’s not really fancy that’s okay too, the male species likes to mark his own territory and make it his very own. Real men are true Garage Mahalics . Now before the female readers snub their noses at all of this, it should be noted that most of the world’s greatest inventions were created in a garage including the Wright Brother’s airplane, Apple and Hewlett Packard computers, the automobile, and Flubber. The invention of Flubber certainly explains man’s infatuation with this most basic structure. Let’s also not forget that countless rock bands got their start in this architectural icon. Walt Disney created Mickey Mouse when he was working one night in his garage and saw mice playing cards. Garages helped mold this nation. What do Garage Mahalics look for? A truly great garage that has at least five bays with finished interior walls and a floor with that fancy epoxy coating or black and white alternating linoleum tiles giving it that vintage 50’s look. Heat and hot and cold running water are a must. The ceilings should be high enough to allow a car to be put on a lift without crushing the roof when it is raised. A grease pit would be a bonus. The Garage Mahal should also have a compressor and a MIG welder. There must be plenty of storage cabinets (faced with shiny diamond plate), peg boards on

the walls, and lots of lighting so you can see how great things look. Last, but not least, a big honking stereo. Part of my job, as a REALTOR, is to provide the male members of the buying public with invaluable assistance in finding their dream Garage Mahal. This service is intended to lessen the stress involved for couples looking for the perfect home and ensuring harmonious marital bliss. With that in mind, here are properties currently on the market in our area that have achieved Garage Mahal Gold Status: At the least expensive end of the spectrum, there is a six car garage located at 393 Durrell Mountain Road in Belmont with plenty of height and depth for all your toys. Sitting conveniently next to the garage is an 1,800 square foot two bedroom, two bath ranch with a great open floor plan, cathedral wood ceilings in the great room, stone hearth, two wood stoves, and some closets. This home is offered at $207,000 which is well below the current assessed value of $239,000. Good garage, good deal. Down in Gilmanton at 271 NH Route 140, there is another six car garage with high ceilings and one bay with doors at either end so you can drive your snow machines in one side and out the other. This garage comes equipped with a like-new 2,593 square foot, three bedroom, three bath cape. The home features hardwood floors, cherry cabinetry and granite counter tops in the kitchen, a first floor master suite, a fully finished basement, and closets. A great garage and a very nice house priced at $278,500. A car collectors dream garage can be found at 89 Daniel Webster Highway in Center Harbor. There you’ll find space for 16 cars in a 48’ x 80’ heated garage with three 12’ doors, a ¾ bath, and an office. Nice! After a hard day polishing your antique cars you can stroll back to the 1790’s vintage, 2,946 square foot, three bedroom, two bath, renovated farmhouse with closets. The home has a new heating system, 200 amp electric service, winsee SANBORN page 19

You will strike the balance. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You want to make an improvement, but may not be sure how to go about it. There are many cures available to choose from. Just be sure to look for one that’s better than the disease! PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The change you make today will stick because you’re doing what’s right for you. Others may benefit, but that’s not why you’ll put in the effort. This is purely personal. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 2). You’ll get the top-rate treatment you deserve this year, as loved ones heap attention on you. The risk you take this month pays off in October. In May, you will turn a hobby or personal interest into a moneymaker. In June, you’ll find a new audience that really gets what you’re doing. September brings renewal and upgrades.

Shopping will be involved, and you’ll find the best deals or negotiate your way into what you want. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You have a competitive advantage, but it won’t benefit you unless you know what it is. Investigate this now. Ask for opinions from objective parties. Find out what is special about your position and how to leverage this. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are compassionate and sensible. You are favored among loved ones for this very reason, and you will be given priority status. Your suggestions and needs will be heard and acted upon. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll focus on a new goal. It is not readily apparent how to proceed in this matter. Luckily, you’ll be among those who know the best way to move things along. Ask and learn. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There are those who look up to you and require your counsel. You sometimes struggle to be the person you ask others to be. No one is perfect. The important part is that you try. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It’s as though you are standing in wet cement. You can get out now on your own accord, but don’t stick around any longer, or the cement will dry and you’ll be truly stuck.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Saturday, April 2, the 92nd day of 2011. There are 273 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 2, 1811, James Monroe became the seventh U.S. Secretary of State. On this date: In 1513, Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon landed in present-day Florida. In 1792, Congress passed the Coinage Act, which authorized establishment of the U.S. Mint. In 1865, Confederate President Jefferson Davis and most of his Cabinet fled the Confederate capital of Richmond, Va., because of advancing Union forces. In 1917, President Woodrow Wilson asked Congress to declare war against Germany, saying, “The world must be made safe for democracy.” (Congress declared war four days later.) In 1932, aviator Charles A. Lindbergh and John F. Condon went to a cemetery in The Bronx, N.Y., where Condon turned over $50,000 to a man in exchange for Lindbergh’s kidnapped son. (The child, who was not returned, was found dead the following month.) In 1956, the soap operas “As the World Turns” and “The Edge of Night” premiered on CBS television. In 1982, several thousand troops from Argentina seized the disputed Falkland Islands, located in the south Atlantic, from Britain. (Britain seized the islands back the following June.) In 1986, four American passengers were killed when a bomb exploded aboard a TWA jetliner en route from Rome to Athens, Greece. One year ago: President Barack Obama, visiting a factory in Charlotte, N.C., hailed a new government report showing the most jobs created in nearly three years, saying, “We are beginning to turn the corner.” Gunmen seeking to pass themselves off as U.S. and Iraqi soldiers raided a Sunni village outside Baghdad, killing at least 24 people in an execution-style attack.

Page 16 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, April 2, 2011

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Dear Annie: I am ready for the loony farm. Both of my adult sons are back at home, one with his child. My husband retired last year. I am still working. One son, “Matt,” contributes toward rent and household chores, but the other, “Joe,” sits like a bump on a log and does nothing. I’m sure that Joe has Adult Attention Deficit Disorder, but he won’t do anything about it. I don’t want to throw him out, but he leaves us no choice. He always claims we love his brother more, but it’s not true. Matt is simply more responsible, while Joe sits around looking for handouts. I am a firm believer in tough love, but Joe always finds a way to make us feel guilty. Please help. I need my sanity. -Drowning in Denver Dear Denver: Kids are great at playing on their parents’ guilt. Stiffen your backbone, and tell Joe he will not be permitted to become a freeloader simply because you love him. If he wants to remain in the house, he must contribute either rent money or household help, no excuses, and if that is too much to ask, he is welcome to find another place to live. We also recommend you contact CHADD (chadd.org) for information and suggestions about adult ADD. Dear Annie: I have been married for 36 years. “Alvin” and I have not had a good marriage in a long while and have separated several times. In the past few years, Alvin has been unfaithful. After a recent affair, I shamed Alvin into reluctantly returning home. I now realize that no amount of time will fix the lack of trust. I truly cannot forgive him for his years of infidelity. I no longer love him. We have nothing in common except our grown children. I do not enjoy or want to be intimate with him. I am tired of pretending things are OK. I am miserable, and I know he is not happy, either. I do not enjoy being around

his family. The last time we separated, I dated other men and found it refreshing. I now wish Alvin would leave, but I doubt he will, because I made him feel so guilty. At the time, I thought I needed him, but forcing him to come back made it worse. I’d like to warn your readers to be careful what they wish for. I feel stuck, but hope I can find the words to end this relationship for both of our sakes so we can each move forward. -- Mrs. Miserable in California Dear Mrs. Miserable: Here are the words: “Alvin, this isn’t working out. We are both unhappy and deserve better. Please come with me for counseling so we can figure out the best way to handle our relationship and whether it’s worth staying together.” Good luck to both of you. Dear Annie: This is in response to “Emotionally Drained,” whose husband is bipolar and abusive. She will not be able to help her husband, and it will only get worse as the years go by. An untreated mental illness can drag down those closest to it. My husband burned all his bridges with family and friends, and I felt responsible for his well-being. I think children would have better memories of their father from a distance and grow up more stable with one sane parent, rather than with a mother who is emotionally drained and a father who is mentally ill and abusive. -- Stress Free at Last Dear Readers: We are carrying on Ann Landers’ tradition that April 2 be set aside as Reconciliation Day, a time to make the first move toward mending broken relationships. It also would be the day on which we agree to accept the olive branch extended by a former friend or estranged family member and do our best to start over.

Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column. Please e-mail your questions to: anniesmailbox@comcast.net, or write to: Annie’s Mailbox, c/o Creators Syndicate, 5777 W. Century Blvd., Ste. 700, Los Angeles, CA 90045.

Artist-in-Residence program at Gilmanton School Hypnotist performance to culminate with unveiling of mural on April 6 to benefit LHS band

GILMANTON — The Gilmanton School’s annual Artist-in-Residence program will culminate with the unveiling of a mural on Wednesday, April 6. The project, a collaboration between guest artist Cynthia Robinson and a group of sixth grade students, will be revealed during assemblies for students and teachers at 1 p.m. and 1:45 p.m. and at a 6 p.m. event for families and community members. Robinson, a resident of Moultonborough, has more than 20 years of experience teaching and directing arts programs in the state of New Hampshire. Her artwork and the projects she creates with students include many artistic media, from drawing and

SANBORN from page 13 dows, roof, and insulation. This property is offered at $459,000 which just a shade over the current assessment of $435,000. Over at 75 Water Street in Meredith there is an 8,000 square foot toy garage with 14 foot doors on each end. You can surely fit at least eight cars in there, the biggest motor home you can find, boats, or the excavator you have always wanted plus some. The house that comes with this gem is a wonderful lake home that overlooks Lake Waukewan and 180’ of shorefront across the street. It has a great cottage feel with an open floor plan, a country kitchen that opens into the great room featuring cathedral ceilings, exposed beams, and a large stone see-through fireplace that is also visible from the wonderful wrap-around porch. The home has walls of windows on three sides to bring in the sun and lake views and some closets. This property is offered at $879,000 and is sure to excite the most serious of Mahalics. A very upscale, brick carriage house complete with a clock and bell tower can be found at 224 Dane Road in Center Harbor. This one of a kind garage can hold twelve vintage iron horses in grand style. I don’t think this setting would quite work for old street rods. But it certainly would work for a Ferrari or Porsche collection and given the $3.5 million price tag for this garage a new buyer could probably afford them. The classic Royal Barry Willis brick colonial that comes with the CLASSIC CAPE garage was constructed in 1930 and sits on a private 44 acres lot with views of Squam Lake. It has 7,500 square feet of living space, eighteen rooms, six bedrooms, seven baths, seven fireplaces, a bunch of closSeller Is Offering $5000 Towards The Buyers Closing Costs! 2700 Sf Classic ets, a cozy master suite Cape With Separate Legal Yr Cottage. with a private den, a Cape Offers 5 Bedrms, 2 Baths Hardwood Floors Throughout, Fireplace music room, and a priAnd Large Formal Dining.
