Two young men — Doug Oliver (left) and Brendon Olden (Right) of Btanching Walls of Meredith — spent much of the week pursuing what Olden called “a lost art” by building a dry stone wall at a home on Massachusetts Avenue in Laconia. Olden said that they began with a pile of random rocks left on the homeowner’s front lawn by a friend, which they exhausted with half the wall built. “Patience,” Oliver said of the temperament required of a stone mason. “It’s a puzzle and sometimes the rocks don’t cooperate,” added Olden, who ensures his art is not lost by sharing with school children.(Laconia Daily Sun photo/Michael Kitch).

Dutch ban foreigners from buying marijuana

AMSTERDAM (AP) — This country of canals and tulips is also famous for “coffee shops” where joints and cappuccinos share the menu. Now, the Netherlands’ famed tolerance for drugs could be going up in smoke. A judge on Friday upheld a government plan to ban foreign tourists from buying marijuana by introducing a “weed pass” available only to Dutch citizens and permanent residents. The new regulation reins in one of the country’s most cherished symbols of tolerance — its laissez-faire attitude toward soft drugs — and reflects the drift away from a long-held view of the Netherlands as a free-wheeling utopia. For many tourists visiting Amsterdam the image endures, and smoking a joint in a canal-side coffee shop ranks high on their to-do lists, along with visiting cultural highlights like the Van Gogh Museum and Anne Frank House. Worried that tourism will take a hit, the city’s mayor, Eberhard see POT page 12

More taxes! Less spending! — same old songs on new front WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans defied a veto threat and the House voted Friday to prevent federal loan costs from doubling for millions of college students. The vote gave the GOP a momentary election-year triumph on a bill that has become enmeshed in partisan battles over the economy, women’s issues and President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. The measure’s 215-195 passage was largely symbolic because the package is going nowhere in the Democratic-domi-

nated Senate. Both parties agree students’ interest costs should not rise, but they are clashing along a familiar fault line over how to cover the $5.9 billion tab: Republicans want spending cuts and Democrats want higher revenues. Friday’s vote underscored how with Election Day just over six months away, much of Congress’ work and passion can be aimed as much at political positioning as it is at writing law. Both parties want to show they are trying to help college

students and their families cope in today’s unforgiving economy and, when possible, force their opponents to cast votes that might create fodder for TV attack ads. The GOP bill would keep interest rates for subsidized Stafford loans at 3.4 percent for another year, rather than automatically growing to 6.8 percent on July 1 as they would under a law enacted five years ago by a Democratic Congress. The increase would affect 7.4 million students and, the see STUDENT LOANS page 4

WASHINGTON (AP) — Don’t panic yet. The government reported Friday that the economy got off to a tepid start this year, but that doesn’t foreshadow a repeat of the near-standstill that happened in 2011. “The economy is firmly on a growth trajectory,” said Sung Won Sohn, an economics professor at California State University’s Smith School of Business. “The first-quarter slowdown will be temporary.” Still, the January-March report was dis-

couraging. Economists had expected gross domestic product — the broadest gauge of economic output — to expand at a 2.5 percent annual rate for the first three months of the year. Instead, the Commerce Department said it was 2.2 percent, mainly because of government budget-cutting and a slowdown in business investment. And some of the January-March growth, meager as it was, probably came at the

expense of the current quarter. An unseasonably warm winter pulled car buyers into showrooms earlier than usual. The same was true for housing construction. That’s one reason it jumped at a 19 percent pace from January through March. Economists doubt consumers can keep spending as freely as they did in the first three months of this year: an annual pace that was 2.9 percent faster than in the see ECONOMY page 14

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — Calling it an “oversight,” George Zimmerman’s attorney said Friday the neighborhood watch volunteer did not disclose that a website had raised more than $200,000 for his defense, even though his family told the judge they would have trouble coming up with his bond.

“Quite honestly, with everything he is going through over the past several weeks, if that is the only oversight committed, then we’ll deal with it,” said Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara. O’Mara claimed the family was not trying to be deceptive, but Florida Cir-

cuit Judge Kenneth Lester said he wanted to know more about the money. O’Mara doesn’t think the judge will change Zimmerman’s bond in light of the new information. Zimmerman was released from jail earsee ZIMMERMAN page 13

Lebanon High teacher shot to death with 4 kids nearby; husband arrested GRANTHAM, N.H. (AP) — The husband of a longtime educator nominated for New Hampshire teacher of the year in 2007 was charged Friday with shooting her to death inside their home with their four children nearby. Natalie Perriello was shot multiple times Thursday night, the attorney general’s office said. Her husband, 41-year-old James Perriello, was arraigned on a second-degree murder charge Friday afternoon in Newport District Court and is being held without bond. The couple’s children weren’t physically hurt. The state public defender’s office says no one has been assigned to Perriello’s case yet. Natalie Perriello, 42, taught computer science and personal finance at Lebanon High School for the last four years. She also taught for 14 years at Canaan Elementary School. Grief counselors were available at both schools Friday. While teaching at Canaan Elementary School in 2007, Perriello was one of 23 nominees for New

Hampshire teacher of the year. “Natalie was a beloved teacher here for almost 14 years, and certainly our loss is affecting colleagues and former students,” said Assistant School Superintendent Patrick Andrew. Andrew said many of the teachers were so close to her that they received text messages about her death long before investigators made it official. Being in the upper valley, Canaan Elementary and Lebanon High Schools were both in session this week because they typically follow the Vermont school calendar. Most New Hampshire schools were

on spring break this week. Lebanon High School Superintendent Gail Paludi released a statement saying, “We are all grieving over the sudden loss of Natalie Perriello.” Paludi said counselors were available throughout the day and would be on hand at the high school from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday to provide additional support. She said the killing “has shaken our entire school community.” A hearing scheduled for May 8 will determine if there is probable cause to advance the case to trial.

Gilford Public Works chief defends vehicle maintenance competence of his mechanics BY MIKE MORTENSEN

GILFORD – In the face of criticism leveled during the debate of whether to replace a 25-year-old fire truck, Public Works Director Sheldon Morgan said that he is confident of the caliber of service work his mechanics perform on town vehicles. On Wednesday evening during a discussion before selectmen on whether to replace Engine 4, which has multiple mechanical and safety defects, some on hand criticized that mechanics in Public Works Department were doing shoddy repair work and were also failing to flag serious mechanical and safety defects. “I’m very confident in my men,” Morgan said Thursday. “If we see something we were uncomfortable with we would make everyone aware of it.” He acknowledged that Budget Committee member Kevin Leandro was “probably partially right” in saying that Highway Department mechanics failed to spot some problems on Engine 4 when the vehicle was inspected at the DPW garage last fall. But Morgan explained that based on some of the vehicle defects, which were described during the selectmen’s meeting, it is entirely possible that some

of those problems went undetected, not because of inattention but because the problems would be very hard to spot without actually removing certain parts of the truck. Morgan explained that the DPW has one full-time mechanic and a supervisor who are responsible for performing the routine maintenance on approximately 45 town vehicles. Most are assigned to the DPW, and the Fire and Police departments, with a handful allocated to other departments. He said the department performs inspections on town vehicles and does other routine maintenance such as oil changes, tire rotation and general repairs. They will not do specialty repair work, such as the water pump on Engine 4 which has totally failed, he said. On Wednesday evening all three selectmen concluded that Engine 4’s problems were so severe and so costly to repair that they decided to petition the Superior Court for permission to hold a special Town Meeting at which voters will be asked to approve funds to purchase a new truck, at a cost expected to be between $441,000 and $450,000. Voters rejected a like proposal in March.

STUDENT LOANS from page 2 Obama administration says, cost each an average $1,000 over the life of their loans. Democrats trained their fire on the Republican plan to pay for the bill by abolishing a preventive health fund created by Obama’s 2010 revamping of the health care system. Democrats said that program especially helped women by allocating money for cancer screening and other initiatives and that eliminating it was only the latest GOP blow against women — a charge Republicans hotly contested. “Give me a break,” roared House Speaker John

Boehner, R-Ohio, to rousing cheers from Republican lawmakers. “This is the latest plank in the so-called war on women, entirely created by my colleagues across the aisle for political gain.” Democrats voted solidly earlier this year to take money from the preventive health fund to help keep doctors’ Medicare reimbursements from dropping. Obama’s own budget in February proposed cutting $4 billion from the same fund to pay for some of his priorities. Since the early days of this year’s GOP presidential contest, Democrats have been accusing Repubsee next page

In its veto message, the White House argued that “women in particular” would be helped by the prevention fund and added, “This is a politically motivated proposal and not the serious response that the problem facing America’s college students deserves.” House GOP leaders abruptly scheduled Friday’s vote after Obama barnstormed around the country in recent days to accuse them of ignoring students’ needs.

He said “we became concerned for the safety of our employees, adding that the location of the branch, in a rural setting near the interstate highway, “makes it an attractive target.” Before deciding to close the branch, Seymour said that the bank took steps, including reducing its operating hours, to improve its profitability and considered alternatives. “But, nothing made sense in terms of dollars and cents,” he said. “We’ve never had to close a branch before.” Seymour said that the Bristol office is a 10-minute drive from the Exit 23 Plaza and noted that the Circle K convenience store at the plaza offers an Allpoint ATM, which holders of ATM or debit cards issued by Franklin Savings Bank can use without a surcharge. Apart from its headquarters in Franklin, Franklin Savings Bank will continue to maintain offices in Bristol, Boscawen, Gilford, Laconia and Tilton. rent interest rates extended temporarily, heaping further pressure on congressional Republicans to act. Democrats said Republicans only staged Friday’s vote to remove it as an issue on which they would be vulnerable. They noted this months’ lock-step GOP vote for a 2013 federal budget that would have let Stafford interest rates double in July, and said Republicans had done little in Congress on the issue until this week. “They’re just looking for a way to cover their rear ends,” said Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif. Republicans said they were working methodically on the problem and accused Democrats of inventing a controversy to stir up their voters.

NEW HAMPTON — Franklin Savings Bank has announced that its branch in New Hampton, which opened 14 years ago, will close at the end of the business day on August 31, when accounts will be transferred to the bank’s Bristol office. Mike Seymour, Senior Vice-President of Marketing, said that “this was an extremely difficult business decision” ultimately based on the failure of the branch to achieve satisfactory profitability. He explained that when the bank established the branch on N..H Route 104 near Exit 23 on I-93 additional commercial development was planned for the location, including a supermarket. But, the anticipated projects were not undertaken as the town chose to manage its growth. Without the expected growth in commerce, the growth of the branch was limited to the residential market in a town with approximately 600 households. “We just never got over the hump,” Seymour said. Furthermore, Seymour noted that since Franklin Savings Bank was founded in 1869 it has been robbed just twice and both robberies occurred at the

Illegal immigration problem solving itself? Those who saw mass migration from Mexico as a threat and those who did not all agreed on one thing: It was unstoppable without dramatic action by the federal authorities. They turned out to be wrong about that. The title of a new report from the Pew Hispanic Center, “Net Migration From Mexico Falls to Zero — and Perhaps Less,” says it all. So everyone buckle your seatbelts, if indeed more Mexicans are going back to Mexico than crossing into the United States. It would change a whole bunch of calculations in presidential campaigning. And it would make whatever the Supreme Court says about Arizona’s tough immigration law less consequential. The reason for this changed pattern matters most, and activists on the issue have an interest in pushing their own explanations. “The antiimmigrant climate” may account for some of it, Jennifer Lee of Colorado Legal Services told The Denver Post. Ignoring, as many advocates do, the difference between legal and illegal, she fools nobody. Immigration-control groups link the trend to a weak economy and lack of jobs. That makes it temporary and thus keeps them in business. To see the changes as permanent, argues Mark Krikorian, executive director at The Center for Immigration Studies, is “wishful thinking by people who just want amnesty.” Which, actually, very few Americans want. While there are those on the far left and the cheap-labor right who “just want amnesty,” they are a minority according to every reputable poll. Most who want to put illegal immigrants “on the path to citizenship” also insist that this amnesty be the last. That means it must be paired with serious workplace enforcement. In any case, this trend is not temporary. Demographers following the plunging birthrates in Mexico have been predicting this day would come for some time. There’s now a sharp reduction in the number of 18- to 35-year-old Mexicans — the age group most likely to come here illegally. “Their number was a huge bulge and is receding,” Roberta Jacobson,

assistant secretary in the Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs, told the Association of Opinion Journalists at a State Department briefing on Monday. While rising unemployment is the immediate trigger for the sharp decline in immigration from Mexico, she said, the drop-off in illegal entrants “will probably continue.” The more manageable numbers can only help advance the sort of comprehensive immigration reform that got wedged into America’s leftright divide. The lower boil could help Republicans seeking Latino votes in swing states moderate much of their party’s no-pity position. Likely presidential nominee Mitt Romney is already softening some harsh views expressed when he needed to appease the party’s base. Another factor in stopping the wave of illegal immigration was beefed-up enforcement, the Pew report noted. President Obama was the first president in decades to start seriously going after employers hiring undocumented workers. Rougher state laws undoubtedly played a part, but some are rather ugly. How preferable that Americans trust the federal government to enforce the immigration laws, which is its job, after all. Could America be close to actually solving one of its vexing problems? Smart reform of our immigration laws would do the following: It would protect our native and legal immigrant workers from unfair competition. It would let us devise an immigration program that meets our need for more skilled workers. And it would restore some peace at the border. Someday, Mexicans and Americans may be able to easily cross into each other’s countries for business, visiting, shopping or dinner. If the pressures at the southern border are starting to ease for sure, then that day may come sooner than we thought.

She has written for such diverse publications as The New York Times, Harper’s Bazaar and Institutional Investor.)

Ask any of them why they don’t and the most common answer is that the selection resembles the forthrightness of the defendant ant the Nuremberg trials. Who eats in a restaurant where the menu cover is inscribed “SLOP”? American voter enthusiasm has been badly injured and most non-voters are skeptical of even the most sincere and humble candidate.

I say we need to stop this lethargy and adopt a more adventurous point of view. We’re all human, and every one of us regardless of our good intentions is bound to fail occasionally. We need to be beware of the ones who wallow in failure and deliberate subterfuge, while they glory in how they stiffed the people with subtlety and aplomb. We need to use our brains, and read responsible research on such people and avoid them. They never honor promises to do better. They don’t intend to. Get to the know the candidates

LETTERS Ashland Class of 1955 could never thank Miss Kvedar enough To the editor, While I was still in high school in the middle 1950s I had my first newspaper story published. The story was written with encouragement from my Ashland High School teacher Miss Eva Kvedar, who later married Alfred Kodis, a fellow teacher. When I retired from the newspaper business a few years ago, I acknowledged her support in the final news column I wrote, I thanked her for setting me off on the path which led to my career as a journalist. Miss Kvedar as we knew her, was a member of our AHS yearbook staff and made certain our writing was the best it could be. The AHS Class of 1955 of which I was a member dedicated our yearbook to her saying: The last two years at AHS have been fuller and richer through our contacts with her as teacher and friends. Her inherent qualities of sincerity, integrity and fair play have been a constant source of inspiration and encouragement to all of us.” I kept in touch with her for years. She often wrote me letters of encouragement and acknowledged the writing awards which I received thanks to her pushing me during high school. One time after seeing a story I had written she sent me a note saying: “What’s with the creative writing 101?

Was my high school English class elevated to college status?” Fifty years after graduating from high school she continued to be a mentor to me. We exchanged letters up until a month ago. I knew she had cancer. In her final note on the last day of March she told me that chemotherapy was not working and it was only a matter of time that the cancer would have its way with her. In that note she said she always tried to remember the good times we had together in high school. “I hope you can recall some too,” she wrote. I have just learned that my mentor died on April 5 at the home of her daughter in Los Altos, California. after a brief and courageous battle with cancer. After Eva and her husband Alfred retired from teaching in 1992 they moved to Florida. He died in 2003. They had four children John, David, Martha and Diane and five grandchildren. Dear Miss Kvedar, all members of the Ashland High School Class of 1955 could never thank you enough for what you did for us. We all miss you. Speaking on behalf of my fellow classmates, we extend our deepest sympathies to your children, their spouses, your grandchildren and all other family members. Gordon D. King Laconia

As for your not liking the tax, you are the one who voted this person into office wanting a “change” — which you got — so live with it like the rest of the sheep. Most of the sheep this guy is going after now, is the young vote, who have not been around when things were “good” in this country. If you care to look back in history, it was the young sheep in Germany that idolized their leader making a living hell over there and the young sheep are willing to do the same here. If you can remember, just five years ago this person was referred to as the “anti-Christ”. Getting back to the 1-percent tax, the only ones this is not going to effect are those on welfare who do not have accounts of any kind and most of their transactions are done with card vouchers. So in all fairness, before you call me out again check out

Bev Buker Gilford Editor’s Note: I was curious about Ms. Buker’s assertion that the Obama Administration was going to propose, after the fall election, a 1-percent tax on all financial transactions so I took her suggestion and went to — a website that deals with debunking rumors and urban legends. According to, the Obama Adminstration is not considering a proposal for any such tax. One lone member of Congress, Rep. Chaka Fattah (D-Penn.) has, since 2004, championed the idea of replacing all federal taxes on individuals and corporations with a tax on all financial transactions. He calls it the “Debt Free America Act” but has not to date been able to attract the support on any other member of Congress, let alone get his bill our of committee and on to the House floor for a vote. (

Last year 515 voted on election day & just 144 at Town Meeting To the editor, S-2 will be on the Sanbornton May 8th ballot and should be adopted for the following reasons: At the 2011 Sanbornton Annual Town Meeting only 144 people, out of a town population of 2895, voted on the first warrant article. Conversely, 515 people voted on the 2011 official ballot. Had SB-2 been in effect, many more citizens would have had the opportunity to consider warrant articles. Under SB-2 controversial article supporters would have to actively promote and sell the merits of the article less voters turn it down due to lack of knowledge. Some might say, “everyone will automatically turn down a tax increase”. Not if the article makes sense and is presented properly; to say otherwise is to admit that Sanbornton voters lack any sense of what’s good for the community.

SB-2 requires the Board of Selectmen to hold a deliberative session in February but the actual vote on financial articles does not take place until March. The 30 day delay between the deliberative session and official ballot gives proponents and opponents of financial articles time to make their case thus affording citizens the opportunity to make a more knowledgeable decision. Gone are the days when the majority of Sanbornton citizens turn out for the Town Meeting. SB-2 addresses this change by making easier for citizens to vote on the governmental decisions that affect us all. If you believe better government results when citizens are better informed and participate in higher numbers, then SB-2 is clearly the way to go. Roger Grey Sanbornton

from preceding page sneaky government tactics, murder, mayhem an wild weirdness than you’ll ever find on your T.V. and it’s all true! Isn’t it great to feel you’re being informed about what’s going on and these people want to know the truth? That’s because in spite of preconceived ideas and Obama’s hopeysmoke, the NRA loves America and its people, and its Constitution.

How about the United Nations looking to USURP our sovereign right to govern ourselves? Impossible? No, not if King Obama is enthroned for four more years! Now that’s even more exciting than the Disney Channel and its the truth! Pray for Gods forgiveness (Psalm 12:8) and vote N.R.A. Jay Gould Penacook

has so viciously attacked to drive up cost (another of his efforts for “green” energy.) No matter how you try to twist it, EVERYTHING Obama has done has been entirely AGAINST low cost energy or helping the USA to thrive! Kent, you are going to have to explain how you come to the backwards conclusion that city dwellers are benefiting from high gasoline prices. Seems to me that they are the ones who must commute farther to a job, so are hurt most by gasoline prices. As for alternative sources of energy, why do you ignore the safest, cheapest, cleanest, not affected by foreigners, nuclear electric power plants? Why is the USA so far behind most European countries? Politics, just plain stupid, ignorant, backwards politics! IF it can be done wrong, that’s the way Obama and Congress will do it!

Real problems at Bike Week occur when young punks show up To the editor, Dear Crystal Furnee: Last time I checked we still have freedom of speech. So please don’t ask me to “leave it at that.” Every single year they have had Motorcycle Week in New Hampshire someone complaints about the noise or the way people dress; or something about the bikers. I am so tired of it. The truth is, and always has been, that the people who are drinking and getting arrested aren’t bikers at all, and the accidents are caused by people hitting motorcycles not the other way around. I was riding with four other people when a woman biked out of her driveway and hit a 21 year old on his bike and killed him. He died with his head in my lap, so please don’t tell me about statistics. People throw cigarettes (among other things) out the window of their car and it hits us in the face. During Motorcycle Week of course there are more arrested because there are more people there. You need you’re police logs in the newspaper though because then you will see that there are more people under 25 being arrested in N.H. every week — in every town around before Motorcycle Week even gets here. There are teen drinking parties in Gilford, stolen property, disorderly conduct, sexual assault in Tilton, driving after suspension in Laconia, juvenile problems

in Franklin, etc. Its not the bikers that cause the problems its the people that come to look on and experience bike week that do. A lot of the bikers are working all day and spend their time selling T-shirts and other things. The real problems occur when the young punks who gets boozed up decide to come there. They start fights and harass people (most being those who live in N.H.) This happens every year. It’s the same in Daytona and Sturgis and there are always a lot more bikers at those places, believe me. There is a lot of difference between someone who rides on a motorcycle and one that wears a patch on his back: people who wear patches are likely to be doctors, lawyers, business owners, therefore they do not get drunk, cause trouble, or get arrested. There is a difference between being a “Biker” and a wanna be. So anyways, if you check the arrests then you will see that more have addresses right in N.H. and don’t even own a motorcycle. And yes, motorcycles do make noise, but if you put a thousand cars together then that makes noise too. Anyone near the race track can hear that noise for miles. If N.H didn’t want the money Motorcycle Weeks brings in then why do we invite them here in the first place? Have fun. Diana Field Franklin

LETTERS Affordable universal health care is not a privilege, it’s a right To the editor, I hate to be the bearer of bad news to my liberal and progressive friends, but there is more than a fair chance that the U.S. Supreme Court will invalidate the entire Affordable Health Care (“Obamacare”) Act as unconstitutional because of the mandate to purchase insurance. Our current court, unfortunately, is dominated by extreme conservative ideologues that seem more interested in a political agenda than the law. If they are going to uphold the right of a corporation to be regarded as a “person,” chances are they are going to come down on the side of corporate medicine too. The broken health care system we now have is largely the fault of the insurance and pharmaceutical companies. They spend millions to lobby against real health care reform and have for a long time. We blame the politicians but at the end of the day, we can only, blame ourselves that we are the only developed, democratic nation without a rational, affordable, and universal health care system. We accept the misinformation and outright lies promoted by these corporations and their lobbyists. Remember when the Clintons proposed health care reform in the 1990s? Remember when opponents hired for their attack ads the middleaged woman who whined to her husband that if the Clinton reforms came to pass, “I won’t be able to choose my own doctor.” Well, that was a bit of a

lie and besides, if you are covered by an HMO you may not be able to choose your own doctor anyway! They also lied to the American people and scared them with Canada’s “socialized medicine” and how Canadian’s hate it. This is a clever half-truth. Most Canadians DO complain about various aspects of their system but most, including the Conservative Party, accept the basic model of a single-payer plan and universal coverage. Studies DO show that very few Canadians want anything close to what we have. Now, the same people are promoting lies that health care reform will result in “death panels” for the elderly and the end of Medicare or that illegal aliens will be covered under the plan. Of course, these are all lies too but they will tell them shamelessly to prevent any sort of rational reform to the system we have now — a system which really only insures their profits. The industry tries to scare us into thinking that it will be horrible if the government gets involved in health care decisions. Well, right now, the people who decline or approve coverage are working for insurance companies who make a profit by denying claims. Which is worse? Which is more corrupt? So, the Supreme Court may well side with corporate medicine. But, there is an isotope of silver behind even this mushroom cloud. Perhaps, the American people will wake up and finally refuse to accept the broken, unjust way our country delivers health care.

Perhaps the people will decide perhaps indeed that people should not be mandated to purchase insurance from anyone anymore. Everyone could be covered under a “single-payer” plan. That way, we could take the insurance companies out of the equation. After all, they have been a big part of “the problem” for years. Far from being “socialistic,” Obamacare is way too generous to the private sector in general and the insurance industry in particular. I noticed how the insurance companies were upset when a “public option” was on the table but they were fine with the mandate to purchase insurance as long as that mandate requires that people purchase health insurance from them! A public option that competed with the insurance companies would be a good start. A single-payer plan would be even better. A single-payer plan would not have to necessarily be a federal program. It could be a program like unemployment insurance which has federal involvement but is administered by the individual states,

much as the Canadian provinces and Vermont are already doing. One final note: recently, a writer to The Sun correctly noted that Germany’s health care system was established not by the Nazis but by German Chancellor Graf (Count) Otto von Bismarck years before Adolf Hitler was even born. But why did he establish it? Bismarck was not, by any possible stretch of the imagination, a “socialist.” Bismarck reformed health care “from the top down” to undercut a strong and growing socialist movement in Germany. Under that system, by the early Twentieth Century, Germany led the world in medical research, treatment, and pharmaceuticals. American medical students used to study German so they could read the most up-to-date articles in the medical journals. Affordable, universal health care is not a privilege. It is a fundamental human right. It should therefore be a priority for our country and our leaders. E. Scott Cracraft Gilford

All is well with the N.H. Music Festival; join us this summer To the editor, It is important for everyone to know that all is well with the New Hampshire Music Festival. Everyone involved with the Festival, the Board of Directors, Festival Management and its many supporters, are united and focused on preparing for another exciting and successful music festival for 2012. This will mark our 60th season, making us the oldest summer music festival in New Hampshire. Our world class musicians will soon be returning to us from all over the United States and we are eagerly anticipating their return. With the recent signing of a 10 year agreement with Plymouth State University, we are now assured our magnificent orchestra will continue to perform the concerts in the state of the art Hanaway Theater in the Silver Center for the Arts. Paul Polivnick, our long time Music Director, has been appointed Conductor Laureate and will be returning to

us for the first three concerts of 2012. Having Maestro Polivnick return to conduct the three opening concerts will definitely add to the emotion, exhilaration and celebratory feeling we expect this summer. Everything points to the 2012 season of the New Hampshire Music Festival being one of the most exciting ever. Please consider joining us at one of our Thursday or Friday evening Classical concerts, or Saturday evening Pops Concerts or our Tuesday evening Chamber concerts. We are truly fortunate to have such a world class music festival available for our enjoyment here in the heart of New Hampshire. As the Boston Globe has said, “it is truly a hidden jewel of the Lakes Region of New Hampshire.” Come and check it out. More information is available at the Festival website Gene Bishop Ashland

LETTERS Illegal immigrants already here remains a huge problem for us To the editor, Letter writer Mike Gaumont (April 24) claims America’s problem with illegal immigration is “only getting worse,” and New Hampshire’s Representative Frank Guinta is just the man in Washington to solve it with a multi-billion dollar Berlin wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. With all respect, Mr. Guinta and his supporters are running behind the news. Illegal immigration has been shrinking dramatically in the past few years, and now a report this week from the non-partisan Pew Foundation, based on official data from both U.S. and Mexican authorities, finds the flow of undocumented people across the border has reached a net zero – a “standstill” – for the first time in decades. Several factors are at work, Pew says. The downturn in the U.S. housing construction industry, which draws many illegals, is a factor, but so is the dramatic increase in border

enforcement begun under President George W. Bush and accelerated by President Obama. And U.S. deportations have reached a record high. One factor decidedly not in play is Arizona’s punitive new anti-immigrant law. Thanks to federal court actions, it hasn’t gone into effect yet. The United States still has a huge problem to resolve with illegal immigrants who are already here, who form a largely law-abiding part of our economy. Rep. Guinta’s Berlin Wall won’t fix that. Former Rep. Carol Shea-Porter, who’s running again to reclaim her seat in Congress, has a strict but sensible and humane approach to this problem, not unlike the one Senator John McCain and President Bush supported before Tea Party extremists like Rep. Guinta captured the Republican Party. Robert Gillette Ossipee

Public Access TV communities getting prime times dedicated to their programs By Mike Mortensen FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — In an effort to make showing of public meeting programs on the local public access channel more consistent and user-friendly, Lakes Region Public Access television has changed its program lineup so certain communities get prime time time slots on the same day each week. LRPA Executive Director Denise Beauchaine said Friday that the move was approved by the LRPA Board of Directors on Tuesday and the new program format was implemented Wednesday. Under the plan the six communities which pay dues to the public access service will have the primetime timeslot (7:30-11 p.m.) and the so-called drive-time time slot the following morning (5-9 a.m.) dedicated to the showing of their public government meetings on MetroCast Cable Channel 26. “It should make it much more userfriendly,” Beauchaine said of the schedule change. “The same pattern and consistency will make it easier for people to know when their program is running.” Under the new arrangement,

Wednesday will be Belmont’s prime time night. Alton’s will be Thursday, Northwood’s Friday, and Gilford’s Sunday, Beauchaine explained. Prime time lineup on Mondays and Tuesdays will be for Laconia and Meredith, with each community getting the preferred slots on each of the two nights on alternate weeks. “So one Monday will be MeredithLaconia night and Tuesday the Laconia-Meredith night, and then the next week Monday will be Laconia-Meredith night and Tuesday MeredithLaconia night,” Beauchaine explained. The reason for the different MondayTuesday setup is because LRPA is committed to carrying the live telecasts of the Laconia City Council and the Meredith Board of Selectmen, which both occur on Monday nights and sometimes on the same Monday nights. This new arrangement makes it possible that on those Mondays that the Laconia City Council meeting preempts the Meredith Selectmen that the Meredith selectmen’s meeting can then be repeated in its entirely the following day in prime time. Overall, the older meetings will be shown in the drive-time period, while see next page

the most recent meetings will be scheduled in prime time. One complaint from some local communities has been up until now the prime-time slots by and large went to the larger communities, like Laconia and Meredith, and the smaller towns had to settle for their meetings being shown overnight or Saturdays and other times when viewership is typically low. The 10 communities which are in the Lakes Region Cable Television Consortium are using their upcoming cable TV franchise negotiations with MetroCast Cablevision to get the cable provider to make it possible to target local government and other community programs to cable TV subscribers in one particular community, rather than the Metro-

Cast system as a whole. In the meantime, Beauchaine sees this plan to give LRPA member communities their own primetime night as a step forward. “Most have indicated that they are happy with it,” Beauchaine said of the initial feedback she has received on the new schedule. She said that she hoped by early next week to have information about the new schedule viewable on Channel 24 which is the public access community bulletin board. Beauchaine that if more communities become LRPA then changes would be made to so they would be assured of prime-time exposure for their meetings, too.

Annual Coin Show Opens to Public BY DAVID MORGAN STAFF WRITER This year the annual International Coin Collectors Association will open it’s doors to the general public. The five day coin show is a unique opportunity for anyone that has coins, whether it’s a single coin or an entire collection. They can meet with and sell directly to the collector’s club. Admission is free and there is no obligation to sell. The types of coins the collectors are looking for include silver dollars, half dollars, quarters and dimes

dated 1964 and before. Actually, the half dollars can date all the way to 1970. The government used silver to make most U. S. coinage until 1965 when they started using cheaper clad. Silver coins made before 1965 are made with 90 percent silver and are worth many times their face value because of today’s high silver market. Recently, silver has been trading for about $32 per oz. Five years ago, silver was just over $4 per oz. This dramatic increase has raised the price of these silver coins dramatically. Therefore, people that have these coins are selling them to take advantage of the

record high prices. During this five day event, those who have coins they wish to sell will be able to do just that. Unlike selling your coins at a pawn shop or one of those traveling “we buy anything” sales, this show is operated by collectors who pay much higher prices. This show isn’t just for silver coins either. They are also interested in gold coins, paper currency, nickels and pennies too. The United States government started minting coins in 1792. If those early coins are in good condition, they can be worth big money. For instance, a 1792 silver dollar could be worth as


much as $20,000 if it’s the right one. Compare that to a common wheat back penny from the 1960’s— still collectible but only worth a few cents. Old paper currency can be worth a lot too. A common silver certificate is only worth a couple of bucks but an 1890’s $20 bill in excellent condition could be worth thousands. This event is a place you can learn about the coins and paper currency that you have and a chance to sell directly to collectors.

Laconia firefighters responded to reports of smoke coming from an Elm Street home on Thursday. (Courtesy photo)

LFD tracks down blaze on Elm Street LACONIA — Firefghters dispatched to Elm Street late Thursday afternoon in response to reports of smoke coming from a residence arrived to be struck by the pungent smell of burning plastic but to find no sign of smoke. As crew began checking homes in the vicinity of 247 Elm Street they saw a man, blackened with soot, emerge from 229 Elm Street, where a

large commercial vacuum cleaner had been destroyed by fire. Fire Chief Ken Erickson said that flames reached into the floorboards, but because there were no furnishings in the home, the fire did not spread. He estimated the value of the fire damage to the flooring and smoke damage throughout the residence at approximately $10,000.

Sales data shows Laconia housing

market to have bottomed out in 2010 LACONIA — Data gathered by the Assessing Department, based on the property tax year from April 1 to March 31, indicates that after bottoming out in 2010, the housing market in the city began to rebound in 2011. After peaking at 425 in 2007, sales dropped to 242 in both 2009 and 2010, but rose to 264 in 2011 and 282 in 2012. However, average home continued to decline throughout the same period, from $227,804 in 2007, to 214,939 in

2008, to $208,193 in 2009, to $196,894 in 2010, to $196,318 in 2011 and to $183,101 in 2012, a drop of approximately 20-percent over the six years. The number of foreclosures, which tripled from 13 to 38, from 2008 to 2009 then jumped to 75 in 2010, began to decrease in 2011 when there were 64, still many more than prior to the recession when they could be counted on the fingers of one hand. — Michael Kitch

POT from page one van der Laan, is hoping to hammer out a compromise with the national government, which relies on municipalities and local police to enforce its drug policies. Relaxing outside The Bulldog, a coffee shop in downtown Amsterdam, Gavin Harrison and Ian Leigh of Northern Ireland said they hoped the

city wouldn’t change. “I think it’s going to be a shame for Amsterdam, I think it’s going to lose a lot of tourists,” Harrison said. Leigh said he had been visiting Amsterdam for a decade and had noticed the erosion of tolerance over the years. “It’s taking a step back,” he said. see next page

DOG ATTACK from page one the case is assigned to Officer Kevin Baron, who is cooperating with the Belmont Police to determine the whereabouts of the dog and the identity of its owner, so far without success. Woodbury recalled that after the attack, when she had distanced herself from the dog, which was in the roadway, a blue pickup truck stopped to avoid the animal. She thought the driver may have recognized the dog. Woodbury, who is without health insurance, was treated for her injuries at the emergency department of Lakes Region General Hospital, where she was given an antibiotic to prevent infection. She said that her left hip is severely swollen and badly bruised and she finds it painful to sit. “I have photographs of the teeth marks,” she said. Above all, Woodbury said that she is seeking assurance that the dog has been vaccinated against rabies. She said that she was told at the hospital to defer immediate treatment for rabies, which is very expensive and painful, until confirming whether or not the dog has been vaccinated. “It’s been two days and I haven’t heard anything,” she said. “I still don’t know the status of the dog.” “I’m terrified that someone else will get bit if that dog gets loose again,” Woodbury said. “That is a dangerous animal. and other people walk in that neighborhood.” from preceding page Coffee shop owners have not given up the fight. A week ago they mustered a few hundred patrons for a “smoke-out” in downtown Amsterdam to protest the new restrictions. A lawyer for the owners, Maurice Veldman, said he would file an appeal against the ruling by The Hague District court, which clears the way for the weed pass to be introduced in southern provinces on Tuesday. If the government gets its way, the pass will roll out in the rest of the country — including Amsterdam — next year. It will turn coffee shops into private clubs with membership open only to Dutch residents and limited to 2,000 per shop. The Netherlands has more than 650 coffee shops, 214 of them in Amsterdam. The number has been steadily declining as municipalities imposed tougher regulations, such as shuttering ones close to schools. But the new membership rules are the most significant rollback in years to the traditional Dutch tolerance of marijuana use. The government argues that the move is justified to crack down on so-called “drug tourists,” effectively couriers who drive over the border from neighboring Belgium and Germany to buy large amounts of marijuana and take it home to resell. They cause traffic and public order problems in towns along the Dutch border.

ZIMMERMAN from page one lier this week, and has gone into hiding ever since over concerns about his safety. He is accused of second-degree murder for the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager. Zimmerman wasn’t charged for more than six weeks, setting off nationwide protests. He claims self-defense. Zimmerman’s father is white and his mother is from Peru. An attorney for Martin’s family said the teenager’s parents were “offended” Zimmerman did not tell the judge about the money. “This is a bombshell that was dropped,” Benjamin Crump said. O’Mara said he learned about the money this week, after Zimmerman’s release. The family used $5,000 from the website as well as a second mortgage on their home to bail out Zimmerman, O’Mara said. Zimmerman has also used some of the money for living expenses. Zimmerman disclosed the $200,000 when his defense

attorney was closing down his social media accounts and the website earlier this week, O’Mara said. “We just didn’t have a lot of conversations around money and the website,” O’Mara said. The defense has started a Facebook page and Twitter account for Zimmerman, and another website under O’Mara’s control, . It will allow supporters to donate to a legal defense fund. “I don’t want my client to have any Internet presence unless it is through my office,” O’Mara said. “What I’m trying to do is limit the enormity of danger that comes into this case in places like Twitter and false Facebook accounts.” Zimmerman’s lawyer said most donors had contributed in the range of several hundred dollars. He said he didn’t want their names publicized. “My fear is they will be targeted for reprisals, animosities,” O’Mara said. Also Friday, Lester refused the prosecution’s request to issue a gag order on those involved in the murder trial. He said he would not stop Zimmerman’s attorneys from talking to the media.

Shaker board has interviewed 3 candidates for interim superintendent post By Mike Mortensen BELMONT — The Shaker Regional School Board hopes to select an interim superintendent early next month for the 2012-13 school year. Shaker Board Chairman Pret Tuthill said Friday that the board interviewed three candidates for the position during a non-public session Thursday evening in Canterbury. Tuthill would not say whether the candidates were already working in the Shaker District which serves Belmont and Canterbury, or working in other districts, or combination of both. He did say, however, that he was impressed with the three candidates that were interviewed. “I could live with all three of them,” Tuthill said, stressing that he was speaking for himself. But he

indicated that there seemed to be broad support on the board for two of the candidates. “I think there are a couple they could wrap their arms around,” he said. Tuthill said the board plans to hold a special meeting on Monday, May 7, to select which of the three candidates they want to hire to replace interim Superintendent Tom Haley, whose contract ends on June 30. Tuthill said the board would spend the time between the May 7 meeting and the next regular meeting on May 10 to negotiate contract terms with the prospective interim superintendent; and assuming that all contract issues are settled, the board would take a formal vote at the May 10 meeting and announce their choice publicly at that time. The Shaker School District has been without a permanent superintendent since October 2011 when Mark Blount resigned after just 15 months

on the job, citing irreconcilable differences with the School Board over educational philosophy. Haley has been serving as the interim superintendent since Blount’s departure. In February it appeared the board was close to naming a new permanent superintendent at the culmination of a formal search process. But then one finalist abruptly pulled out of the running and the other was dropped from consideration after news report emerged tying him to apparent financial irregularities in the school district where he was superintendent. In other business Thursday, Tuthill said the board set public hearings for May 24 on a proposal to withdraw funds from the Technology and Buildings and Grounds expendable trusts. The Technology Trust hearing is set to begin at 5 p.m. and the Buildings and Grounds Trust hearing at 5:30, said Tuthill.

PARTY from page one warrant and around 2:30 a.m. entered the building, where they found minors ranging in ages from 14 to 20 hiding through the home. Police found beer cans and liquor bottles strewn about. Juveniles told police that several revelers drove to the party under the influence of alcohol and officers found several vehicles parked in the driveway as well as alcohol containers outside the home. They also said that police disrupted the party just as it was beginning. Babacar Kamara, 18, of 48 Baldwin Street and Jocelyn DuBois of 99 Merrimac Street were arrested for unlawful possession of alcohol by a minor, a violation carrying a minimum fine of $300 for the first offense and $600 for the second and subsequent offenses. The juveniles were released to their parents. Supervisor Sergeant Michael Finogle and Officers Holly Callahan, Brandy Enis and Lindsey Legere cleared the scene at 5:01 a.m. — Michael Kitch

ECONOMY from page 2 vious quarter and the fastest in more than a year. They probably can’t afford to. Americans’ after-tax income rose just 0.6 percent in the first three months compared with a year earlier. That was the puniest pay increase in two years. People spent more in part because they socked away less. The savings rate fell to 3.9 percent of after-tax income. That was down from 4.5 percent. Economists worry that people won’t keep spending more unless their income grows. Stock prices rose Friday despite the report of weaker growth. David Rosenberg, chief economist at Gluskin Sheff, said investors might have bid up stocks because they think the Federal Reserve is more likely to pursue another round of bond buying to stimulate the economy. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke “has created the impression that if the economy stumbles, he’ll be there to hold your hand,” Rosenberg said. The lackluster first-quarter growth follows gov-

ernment reports that hiring slowed sharply in March and the number of people seeking unemployment benefits reached a three-month high. With 12.7 million people unemployed, today’s economy needs much faster growth to boost hiring. Growth would have to be roughly 4 percent for a full year to lower the unemployment rate, now 8.2 percent, by 1 percentage point. In 2011, a series of setbacks struck the economy. Gas prices rose sharply. An earthquake in Japan shuttered factories there and cut off supplies to U.S. manufacturers. A standoff in Washington brought the federal government to the brink of default, rattling investors and consumer confidence. And Europe’s debt crisis threatened to diminish U.S. exports and further spook investors. The economy slowed to an annual rate of just 0.4 percent in the first quarter of 2011. Unemployment, which had been falling, rose again last summer. But most economists think the U.S. economy is more resilient this year.

SECRET SERVICE from page 3 of working, according to a memorandum describing the changes obtained by The Associated Press. In some cases under the new rules, chaperones will accompany agents on trips. The embattled Secret Service director, Mark Sullivan, urged agents and other employees to “consider your conduct through the lens of the past several weeks.” The Secret Service said it would conduct a training session on ethics next week. Sullivan said the rules “cannot address every situation that our employees will face as we execute our dual-missions throughout the world.” He added: “The absence of a specific, published standard of conduct covering an act or behavior does not mean that the act is condoned, is permissible, or will not call for — and result in — corrective or disciplinary action.” “All employees have a continuing obligation to confront expected abuses or perceived misconduct,” Sullivan said. The agency-wide changes were intended to staunch the embarrassing disclosures since April 13, when a prostitution scandal erupted in Colombia involving 12 Secret Service agents, officers and supervisors and 12 more enlisted military personnel who were there ahead of President Barack Obama’s visit to a South American summit. But the new policies announced Friday raised questions about claims that the behavior discovered in Cartagena was an isolated incident: Why would the Secret Service formally issue new regulations covering thousands of employees if such activities were a one-time occurrence? “It’s too bad common sense policy has to be dictated in this manner,” said Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. “New conduct rules are necessary to preventing more shenanigans from happening in the future, and whether these are the best, and most cost effective, rules to stop future misconduct remains to be seen.”

Red Sox winning streak reaches 5 in Chicago CHICAGO (AP) — Darnell McDonald hit a tiebreaking three-run double and homered to help the Boston Red Sox rally to beat the Chicago White Sox 10-3 on Friday night. David Ortiz hit a two-run shot for the Red Sox, who are 5-0 since blowing a 9-0 lead against the New York Yankees Saturday for their fifth straight loss. After Paul Konerko’s home run in the fifth gave the White Sox a 3-2 lead, the Red Sox responded with a five-run sixth inning, highlighted by McDonald’s bases-clearing double. Boston starter Daniel Bard (2-2) took advantage of the run support and threw seven strong innings. He allowed three runs, two earned, on six hits and retired 13 of the last 14 batters he faced. He struck out six and walked one. Before Friday, Bard was only backed by two total runs in 12 1-3 innings. White Sox starter John Danks (2-3) struggled in his fifth start of the season. He allowed seven runs on six hits in 5 2-3 innings. Chicago has lost four straight. Danks was unable to hold a lead for Chicago in the sixth inning. He issued back-to-back walks to Adrian Gonzalez and Kevin Youkilis. Ortiz then loaded the bases with a single and Cody Ross followed with an RBI single

to tie the game. With two outs and the bases still loaded, McDonald lined a double down the left-field line. Marlon Byrd ended Danks’ night with an RBI single to put the Red Sox ahead 7-3. The game was played in cold and windy conditions. The temperature at first pitch was 39 degrees, but it didn’t slow the Red Sox hitters. They have hit 12 homers and scored 53 runs over the last six games. Trailing 1-0 in the second inning, Youkilis drew a leadoff walk then Ortiz followed with a two-run shot to right. It was Ortiz’s fourth of the season and his 382nd of his career. He is tied with former Red Sox great Jim Rice and Frank Howard for 59th on the career list. Alejandro De Aza led off the first inning with a double down the left-field line. Two outs later, A.J. Pierzynski doubled off the left-field wall to score De Aza. In the third inning, Alexei Ramirez reached on Youkilis’ throwing error and advanced to second on Konerko’s bloop single. With two outs, Ramirez came across to score on a passed ball by catcher Kelly Shoppach. Ross and Shoppach had back-to-back RBI singles in the seventh inning to extend the Boston lead to 9-3. McDonald homered in the ninth.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The New England Patriots selected Arkansas defensive end Jake Bequette with the 90th selection of the NFL draft Friday night. New England traded down for the pick, sending their 62nd pick to the Green Bay Packers for Nos. 90 and 163. That No. 163, in the fifth round Saturday,

is the only pick the Patriots have left. The 6-4½, 274-pound Bequette, the defensive MVP of the 2012 Cotton Bowl, can play either defensive end of outside linebacker. He was the second defensive end taken by the Patriots in the first three rounds of the draft. Thursday, they traded up to the 21st pick to take Syracuse DE Chandler Jones.

Patriots trade down, then take Arkansas DE in 2nd round

Redneck home seller tips- Part Deux I have received a number of calls and letters requesting more tips for rednecks who are selling their homes. It seems there are more rednecks in the area that need help than I thought. In the future when u rite me, pleeze try and rite ledgitable and dont print sew small. Anyway, here goes. You might be a Redneck Home Seller if you have chickens running loose around your yard. Please put them in the chicken coup prior to showing your property. Chickens can distract buyers from seeing the many finer points of your home. This also goes for pit bulls, alpacas, cats, and small children. Also, please take note: despite your interpretation of the zoning regulations, livestock are not allowed in all zoning districts. Remember, where chickens are outlawed, only outlaws will have chickens. If Billy the Big Mouth Bass, the talking fish, is the focal point of your living room, you definitely are a redneck and you will need help to sell your home. Please consult with a qualified home staging expert to arrange your home to maximize its appeal for the discerning home buyer. He or she will find a place to put Billy, your Dale Earnhardt Senior paint by number portrait, and your NASCAR die cast racecar collection. It will be someplace that will really enhance your home. That place will most likely be where the sun don’t shine. No.... I know what you were thinking, but I meant the closet in your guest bedroom. When your real estate agent tells you that your home is not approved by Fannie Mae, please stop arguing with him. He is not trying to pick a fight and he surely is not referring to your second cousin that married your third cousin on your mother’s side. I know she thinks your home is just wonderful, but your agent has never set eyes on her. What he is referring to is the Federal National Mortgage Association whose function is to finance the other-

wise un-financeable and to line various politicians’ pockets. At this writing, no one is sure which is more important. I think they are having some kind of hearings on that down in D.C. If you have some of those colorful signs on your property that say something like “This Property Protected by Smith and Wesson” or “My dog can make it to the gate in 2 seconds, can you?” you are definitely a Redneck Home Seller. It would be prudent to remove them while you are trying to sell your home. Some people could erroneously think that (a) you are not a very friendly sort of guy or (b) this might not be a safe neighborhood. It does seem that most people that have seen you are kind of intimidated though. I guess that is probably why the neighborhood is so safe. That and the fact that you shoot tin cans off the fence from the back porch. Anyway, I know they are cool signs, but please remove them. Finally, you should remove any redneck lawn ornaments such as tractors, farm implements, and other rusty iron from your front (or back) lawn. The venerable and appropriately placed horse drawn hay rake or plow is probably the only exception to this rule. All bathroom fixtures should be inside your house. Toilets turned into planters are not “in” and should also be removed along with those two romantic claw foot tubs you have side by side on your yet to be completed back deck. Despite the success of the Cialis commercials they might help some things but they won’t help you sell your house...

FRANKLIN — Members of the LRGHealthcare Board of Trustees, Senior Management Team, and major donors from Twin Rivers’ communities assembled at Franklin Regional Hospital on Friday, April 20 to celebrate the regional kick-off of LRGHealthcare’s Strengthening the Community’s Well-Being Capital Campaign. LRGHealthcare President & CEO Tom Clairmont explained that “the major focus of the Strengthening the Community’s Well-Being Capital Campaign is to raise the necessary funds, through philanthropic giving, to convert existing LRGH and FRH inpatient rooms to single patient rooms.” Renovations will include private bathrooms and showers, family sleep sofas and state-of-the-art patient lift systems, providing the safest and easiest way to move a patient. Private rooms allow patients the opportunity to sleep better, heal faster and have private discussions with their family and health care providers. It is also crucial for infection control. In addition to private patient rooms, renovations include a new endoscopy suite at LRGH, updating medical imaging equipment at Franklin Regional Hospital and Lakes Region General Hospital, and expansion of the LRGH Emergency Department

We are proud to kick off the Community Campaign to assist with improvements for quality healthcare.” In closing Clairmont said “Now we are reaching out to all in the communities our hospitals serve to ask for their support.

Laconia Savings Bank donates $1,000 to initiative to raise funds for charities that assist visually-impaired LACONIA — Laconia Savings Bank recently presented Randy Pierce and his guide dog Quinn with a $1,000 donation towards 2020 Vision Quest. Pierce spoke recently to the Laconia Savings Bank Retail Lending Team about reaching new heights through teamwork and communication and was surprised with this unexpected donation. Pierce founded 2020 Vision Quest with the goal to raise funds for several charities including the NH Association for the Blind and Guiding Eyes for the Blind, which both provide valuable services to visually impaired and blind individuals. Pierce and Quinn recently entered the record books as the first blind man and guide dog to summit all of New Hampshire’s 48 highest mountains during a single winter.

chair ramp at the SHS’ historic Lane Tavern in Sanbornton. Participating Lodge members were Ralph Carter, George Luke, Frank Viana and Bruce McLaughlin and SHS members were Dave Witham and Jack Potter. The Lowe’s Home Center of Tilton provided construction materials on a generous cost-sharing basis with the SHS. The SHS thanks Mike Lariviere and Jeff Chandler for their support and assistance in this project. This wheelchair ramp is the second phase in making the SHS’ Lane

Tavern handicapped accessible. In 2011, the Sanbornton Historical Society installed a stairlift to make the Lane Tavern’s second floor ballroom handicapped accessible and to open the way for many others to enjoy the programs and events of the SHS. Laconia Savings Bank gave a significant donation toward the purchase of the stairlift and several SHS members and supporters provided the balance of the funds to purchase this stairlift.

MEREDITH — Inter-Lakes High School Senior Kendall Donohoe won the Meredith Rotary Club’s Four-Way Speech Contest. This contest was open to students from InterLakes High School, and Moultonborough Academy. Contestants were required to write a 5-7 minute speech that was original in content and applied to the four principles of the Rotary Four-Way Test. Those principles are: 1. Is it the truth? 2. Is it fair to all concerned? 3. Will it build goodwill and better friendship? 4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned? Donohoe will now compete against students selected by other Rotary clubs in the Rotary District that covers the southern half of New Hampshire and Vermont, to determine the District’s four-way speech contest winner.

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis mind and keep you on task. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll spend a fair amount of time looking at the big picture. To an outsider, you appear to be a person staring into space. They can’t see the magnificent wheels turning in your mind. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You are still being too hard on yourself, expecting maximum productivity without allowing time to laugh, kick back and recuperate. Don’t skip these crucial steps, as they are critical to your success. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have that special charisma that makes people give you their full attention. You will have a receptive audience, so take your sweet time telling a story, giving a performance or explaining what you know. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Once you fully bond with someone, it’s next to impossible to separate you permanently from that person. Temporary separations end in you being magnetically drawn back together. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You feel a strong empathy with someone who is going through an intense experience. Your empathy is an expression of love that widens your perception and further opens your heart. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 28). Operating in groups will be a specialty, and you’ll be an integral part of a winning team this year. You’ll visualize yourself succeeding and then create the same dynamic in your reality. A shift in perspective helps you find a way to make more money in June. November brings exciting visits with those you’ve missed. Pisces and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 25, 49, 27 and 16.

by Chad Carpenter

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re a sponge for knowledge now, and you’ll learn from those who have what you want. The best teacher, however, is experience. Dive in and go for the hands-on experience whenever possible. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When you have a plan and follow it, you’ll feel productive. You might get even more accomplished by just winging it; however, you won’t get the same winning feeling as you do when you follow a plan. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You won’t do things in the expected order, but you’ll get them done nonetheless. A loved one might find this puzzling or even maddening. But why should you do things like everyone else? CANCER (June 22-July 22). Most people think it’s important to be right, but they’re wrong about that. You’ll be amazed at what happens when you give up the need to be right. Your mind will quiet, and you’ll be present to the moment. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your standards of style come into play. You may like someone very much, but you won’t take the relationship to the next level until you’re satisfied that your styles will mesh well. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your skills get rusty if you don’t use them. You’re in just the mood to freshen up your bag of tricks. Practice that thing you used to be able to do to prevent losing the skill altogether. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Writing to-do items down on paper seems so “old school” in today’s high-tech world. However, it’s the method that’s going to make this day a great success, because it works the best to focus your

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Saturday, April 28, the 119th day of 2012. There are 247 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 28, 1789, there was a mutiny on the Bounty as rebelling crew members of the British ship led by Fletcher Christian set Capt. William Bligh and 18 sailors adrift in a launch in the South Pacific. (Bligh and most of the men with him managed to reach Timor in 47 days.) On this date: In 1758, the fifth president of the United States, James Monroe, was born in Westmoreland County, Va. In 1788, Maryland became the seventh state to ratify the U.S. Constitution. In 1817, the United States and Britain signed the Rush-Bagot Treaty, which limited the number of naval vessels allowed in the Great Lakes. In 1918, Gavrilo Princip, the assassin of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria and the archduke’s wife, Sophie, died in prison of tuberculosis. In 1942, pollster George Gallup said most Americans preferred to call the current global conflict “World War II” or “The Second World War” (other suggestions included “Survival War” or “War of World Freedom”). In 1945, Italian dictator Benito Mussolini and his mistress, Clara Petacci, were executed by Italian partisans as they attempted to flee the country. In 1952, war with Japan officially ended as a treaty signed in San Francisco the year before took effect. Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower resigned as Supreme Allied commander in Europe; he was succeeded by Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway. In 1967, heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali refused to be inducted into the Army, the same day General William C. Westmoreland told Congress the U.S. “would prevail in Vietnam.” In 1987, Contra rebels in Nicaragua killed Benjamin Ernest Linder, an American engineer working on a hydroelectric project for the Sandinista government. In 1988, a flight attendant was killed and more than 60 persons injured when part of the roof of an Aloha Airlines Boeing 737 tore off during a flight from Hilo (HEE’-loh) to Honolulu. In 1992, the Agriculture Department unveiled its pyramid-shaped recommended-diet chart that had cost nearly $1 million to develop. One year ago: President Barack Obama reshuffled his national security team, with CIA Director Leon Panetta succeeding Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Gen. David Petraeus replacing Panetta at the CIA. Today’s Birthdays: Pulitzer Prize-winning author Harper Lee is 86. Director-actor Richard C. Sarafian is 82. Actress-singer Ann-Margret is 71. Actress Marcia Strassman is 64. Actor Paul Guilfoyle is 63. “Tonight Show” host Jay Leno is 62. Rock musician Chuck Leavell is 60. Actress Mary McDonnell is 59. Rock singer-musician Kim Gordon is 59. Actress Simbi Khali is 41. Actress Bridget Moynahan is 41. Actor Chris Young is 41. Rapper Big Gipp is 39. Actor Jorge Garcia is 39. Actress Elisabeth Rohm is 39. Actress Penelope Cruz is 38. Actor Nate Richert is 34. Actress Jessica Alba is 31. Actor Harry Shum Jr. (TV: “Glee”) is 30. Actress Jenna Ushkowitz (TV: “Glee”) is 26. Actress Aleisha Allen is 21.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, April 28, 2012— Page 23


Dear Annie: I am 57 and single. I truly regret leaving my husband of only three years, but he never wanted to spend time with me, did not communicate, drank beer all the time and spent every day in the garage working on ship models. My life was easy with him. I didn’t have to do anything but show him affection. I loved him and still do, but I thought I would be happier finding someone I could talk to and do things with. I was married for 34 years to my first husband, and he ended up falling in love with my sister. How do I get over my second husband and all the regret of leaving him? I told him I made a terrible mistake, but all he said was I should have thought of that earlier. I asked whether I could have two days a month with him. He replied that we could be friends, but nothing more. I have begun dating again and met a guy I liked initially, but everyone tells me I’d be jumping from the frying pan into the fire. He is controlling and tells me that I “need” to do this and “need” to think that. He says he loves me, but I can’t handle all the arguing over stupid things when we disagree. He thinks the world is out to get him. He doesn’t even shower unless I tell him to. I have sought counseling, and was told not to move in with my new boyfriend. But it hurts to let him go. I am so overwhelmed and don’t know what to do. Please help -- Washington Dear Washington: Take a deep breath, and stop chasing after the men in your life. Your new boyfriend is not the right guy, and the sooner you break it off the better. Yes, it will hurt, but not as much as it would if you stayed with him. Your ex-husband has made it clear that he is no longer interested, and frankly, you didn’t seem happy with him, either. Please use this time to figure out what you want

from a relationship. You are trying too hard to have a man in your life and are making poor choices. Go back to your counselor if you think it might help you clarify things. Dear Annie: My wife and I will be celebrating our 10th anniversary this summer. She is an incredible mother, grandmother and wife. The problem? Absolutely nothing. We love each other more than anything and get along great. In 10 years, we’ve never even raised our voices. We both cook, clean, do yard work and share in raising our granddaughters. We never take advantage of each other or do anything we wouldn’t want the other to do. Basically, we treat each other the way we want to be treated. It’s been the happiest 10 years of our lives. Thought you might like getting a positive letter for a change. -- Never Been Happier Dear Happy: You’ve made our day! It’s good to hear from someone whose marriage is filled with love, respect and mutual consideration. Thank you. Dear Annie: I can identify with the letter from “Florida,” who said the fireworks that used to accompany sex have become duds. Two years ago, I convinced my husband to go for counseling with me, and he’s a good guy, so he went. I asked for sex twice a week, plus cuddling and affection at other times. We tried for a while, but it became more effort than it was worth. He seemed to feel ashamed that he needed a little blue pill, so the fire burned out. I’m an attractive and interesting woman. I have many hobbies and work out at a gym with a trainer. Men notice me wherever I go. But my husband is still the love of my life, so I exercise to burn up my sexual needs. -- Southern Belle

Artistic Roots offers free classes for veterans thanks to MVSB grant PLYMOUTH — Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB) is pleased to sponsor Artistic Roots in its endeavor to provide free art classes, demonstrations and workshops to all veterans. MVSB recently announced a $1,000 sponsorship of the organization’s Art for Veterans Project (AVP). Artistic Roots is a cooperative of artists and artisans from Central New Hampshire. Its mission is to support local artists and bring art to its wider community. It operates a multidisciplinary, visual arts gallery and teaching center on Main Street in Plymouth that is handicap-accessible. AVP offers art and craft demonstrations, classes and workshops to all veterans at no charge. Fifteen professional artists from central New Hampshire will share their skill and expertise at classes held throughout the year at Artistic Roots at 73 Main Street in downtown Plymouth. “We are so grateful to Meredith Village Savings Bank for this generous gift to promote the arts and

honor the veterans in our community,” said Monique MacIntosh, executive director for Artistic Roots. “In addition to giving opportunities for creative expression to the heroes who have bravely served our country, the AVP project is a way to support local artisans financially and professionally.” The program, which starts this month, includes drawing, painting, woodworking, pottery, fiber arts, flytying, print-making, mosaics, digital photography and blacksmithing. Instructors who are interested in participating should contact program leaders, Kathy and Tom Grabiek, at the Artistic Roots gallery. For more information or to preregister, visit the gallery at 73 Main Street or call (603) 536-2750. Meredith Village Savings Bank, founded in 1869, is an independent mutual savings bank with 11 offices serving individuals, families, businesses and municipalities in the Lakes Region and the Plymouth area. More information can be found at

Ted Nugent says he’s insulted by cancellation of concert at Fort Knox Army post LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ted Nugent said he was insulted by the cancellation of his planned concert at an Army post over his comments about President Obama. Commanders at the Fort Knox, Ky., post nixed Nugent’s segment of a June concert after the rocker

and conservative activist said at a recent National Rifle Association meeting that he would be “dead or in jail by this time next year” if Obama is re-elected. Nugent told The Associated Press this week that his words were not intended as a threat against the president.

“To think that there’s a bureaucrat in the United States Army that would consider the use or abuse of First Amendment rights in determining who is going to perform at an Army base is an insult and defiles the sacrifices of those heroes who fought for the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights,” Nugent said.
