2 men admit guilt for Alton robbery of store clerk
LACONIA — Two of the men who robbed a store clerk of a night deposit at the TD Bank in Alton in December of 2012 have been sentenced to the N.H. State Prison. Scott Prior, 25, of Alton pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit robbery and one count of being an accomplice to theft.

Principal looks to create freshman ‘house’ within LHS BY GAIL OBER
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — Administrators at the high school have proposed creating a freshman “house” to help eighth graders make the transition from middle school to high school. They made their proposal to the School Board Tuesday night. The purpose of the “house” said High School Principal Jim McCollum would be giving the freshman group of students a specific place and specific teachers to help ease the move up to grades 9-12.
He said he would need a year to prepare for the change for the freshmen, meaning the program would begin in 2014-2015. He told the board he would like to extend the program to sophomores during the following school year or 2015-2016. McCollum, who is the former principal at the middle school, explained Tuesday that middle school is very structured — sixth graders are largely confined to one floor, seventh graders to a different floor and eighth graders on yet another. The high school, he said, is much more free-
form and some students find the transition between the two — especially in the freshman and sophomore years — to be difficult. “This will give a space they can call their own,” said McCollum, noting all eighth graders will go through a career and academic assessment through the guidance department to see what classes are appropriate. He also said teachers and guidance counselors for those grade levels will better coordinate with each other to provide a sense of continuity between individual classes. see LHS page 9

Private prison for N.H. idea declared dead
CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire officials have decided against building a private prison to house state inmates after a consultant’s report raised serious security concerns about the arrangement and questioned whether proposals from four private companies addressed the state’s needs. The state sought proposals, specifically for the construction and private operation of a men’s prison, a women’s prison and a “hybrid” prison that would house both men and women on the same campus. MGT of America, based in Tallahassee, Fla., was hired in July to evaluate the four proposals. In a report released Wednesday, MGT said all of the proposals raise “significant issues” about compliance with the design, construction and operation requirements outlined by the state. “It was determined that the private vendors’ proposed prices may be understated, as those prices did not account for all the (stipulated) requirements,” the report states. “This fact therefore made it impossible to conduct an accurate apples-tosee PRISON page 11

N. Korea warns its military is cleared for nuclear attack SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Ratcheting up the rhetoric, North Korea warned early Thursday that its military has been cleared to wage an attack on the U.S. using “smaller, lighter and diversified nuclear” weapons. The Pentagon, meanwhile, said in Washington that it will deploy a missile defense system to the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam to strengthen regional protection against a possible attack from North Korea. The defense secretary said the U.S. was seeking to defuse the situation.
Despite the rhetoric, analysts say they do not expect a nuclear attack by North Korea, which knows the move could trigger a destructive, suicidal war that no one in the region wants. The strident warning from Pyongyang is latest in a series of escalating threats from North Korea, which has railed for weeks against joint U.S. and South Korean military exercises taking place in South Korea and has expressed anger over tightened sanctions for a February nuclear test. Following through on one threat Wednes-
day, North Korean border authorities refused to allow entry to South Koreans who manage jointly run factories in the North Korean city of Kaesong. Washington calls the military drills, which this time have incorporated fighter jets and nuclear-capable stealth bombers, routine annual exercises between the allies. Pyongyang calls them rehearsals for a northward invasion. The foes fought on opposite sides of the three-year Korean War, which ended in a see NORTH KOREA page 6
Rutgers fires basketball coach after tapes of abuse & taunts made public
PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — Once the video went viral, Mike Rice’s coaching days at Rutgers were over. Now the question is whether anyone else will lose their jobs — including the athletic director who in December suspended and fined Rice for the abusive behavior, and the university president who signed off on it. Rice was fired Wednesday, one day after a video surfaced of him hitting, shoving and berating his players with anti-gay slurs. The taunts were especially troubling
behavior at Rutgers, where freshman student Tyler Clementi killed himself in 2010 after his roommate used a webcam to spy on him kissing another man in his dorm. It also came at an especially embarrassing time for the NCAA, with the country focused on the Final Four basketball tournament this weekend. Rice, in his third season with the Scarlet Knights, apologized outside his home in Little Silver, N.J. “I’ve let so many people down: my players,
my administration, Rutgers University, the fans, my family, who’s sitting in their house just huddled around because of the fact their father was an embarrassment to them,” he said. “I want to tell everybody who’s believed in me that I’m deeply sorry for the pain and hardship that I’ve caused.” Athletic Director Tim Pernetti was given a copy of the tape by a former employee in November and, after an independent investigator was hired to review it, Rice see COACH page 9

Cyprus: is this such a bad thing? “Government is theft.” The old libertarian battle cry came to mind when the news hit, two weeks ago, that Cyprus was about to confiscate 7 percent of all the insured deposits in the island’s two biggest banks. Nicosia also planned to siphon off 10 percent of uninsured deposits, those above 100,000 euros ($130,000), and use that cash as well to finance Cyprus’ share of a eurozone bailout. The reaction was so scalding that the regime had to back off raiding insured deposits. The little people of Cyprus were spared. Not so the big depositors, among whom are Cypriot entrepreneurs and thousands of Russians. Their 10 percent “haircut” has now become an amputation. Large depositors in the Bank of Cyprus, the island’s largest, face confiscation of 60 percent of their capital. In Laika, the No. 2 bank, which is to be euthanized, the large depositors face losses of up to 80 percent. All of Laika’s bondholders will be wiped out, and all employees let go. When the Cypriot banks opened again on March 28, capital controls had been imposed. Only 300 euros may be withdrawn daily from a bank. Folks leaving Cyprus may take only 1,000 euros. What has this crisis to do with us? More than we might imagine. Last week, Jeroen Dijsselbloem, the Dutch chairman of the eurozone’s finance ministers, let the cat out of the bag. The bail-in of big depositors and bondholders, who are being forced to eat a huge slice of the Cypriot bailout, may serve as a model for future bailouts. The hot money that came into Cyprus, said Dijsselbloem, either to be laundered or hidden from taxes, or to seek a higher rate of return, was wagered money. And when bets go bad, government is not obligated to made the gamblers whole again. The former eurozone policy of protecting senior bondholders and uninsured depositors, said the Dutch conservative, is history. If money comes from Northern Europe to bail out the Club Med, Club Med bank bondholders and big depositors will be “bailed in.” Translation: Uninsured savings in Spain, Italy and Slovenia may be raided and bondholders liquidated to bail out their troubled banks. To Malta, Luxembourg, Latvia and other banking centers, the handwriting is on the wall: What happened in Cyprus could happen here. So great was the shock from Dijsselbloem’s remarks, by day’s end he was backtracking, declaring Cyprus was not a template but a “specific case” with unique circumstances. None too soon. For as Barclay’s bank noted, “The decision to bail in senior bank debt and large depositors will likely have a price impact on equity and credit instruments of
those euro area banks that are perceived as the weakest.” Barclay’s was saying that bondholders and big depositors in banks of other troubled eurozone countries may take a second look at where they have stashed their cash and whether their assets may be subject to sudden confiscation. And the monied class may decide, in the wake of the Cyprus slaughter, that security of principal is preferable to a higher rate of return in a risky institution. When capital controls are lifted in Cyprus, why would any depositor, who had been scorched in the inferno, risk leaving any major deposit in a Cypriot bank? Nicosia’s days as a banking center, where total bank deposits exceeded seven times its gross domestic product, are over. And facing a dramatic contraction in their economy, what do Cypriots do now? The effect across Europe is likely to be a gradual selloff of bonds in Italian and Spanish banks and transfers of cash out of these banks into U.S. and European banks where the interest rate offered may be lower but the principal is more secure. Nor is this an unhealthy development. If taxpayers in Northern Europe have to rescue mismanaged Club Med banks, why should not bank bondholders be wiped out, just as they were at Lehman Brothers? And ought not uninsured depositors who stuffed cash into these banks to get higher rates of return or evade taxes or launder dirty money get burned as well? From Asia to Europe, people concerned about the safety of their money are looking at Cyprus, with many surely saying, “There, but for the grace of God, go I!” And they likely hear in the anguished cries of Russian, British and Cypriot depositors, who got no warning and failed to get out in time, a fire bell in the night for themselves. If this persuades depositors to seek security first for their income, pensions and savings, and to transfer funds out of risky banks into more solid institutions, is that such a bad thing? If Kipling’s Gods of the Copybook Headings, who arrived on Cyprus in March with their terrible swift sword, are back in charge, is this not better than having Western taxpayers forever securing the deposits and investments of the rich and feckless? Those Russian depositors wiped out in the Cyprus slaughter may not have died in vain.

LETTERS The people are speaking & most don’t want pay-as-you-throw To the editor, The people are speaking. The response to the City Council asking the public to weigh in and make their preference known as to Option 3 (mandatory recycling), and Option 4 (pay-as-you-throw) has been outstanding. Following the council meeting of Monday, March 11, and an appeal by councilors at that meeting and again in The Daily Sun by this councilor with phone numbers and e-mail address, there has been a steady flow of phone calls, e-mails, and personal contact with the people. As of Tuesday, April 2nd, this councilor has personally received 42 NO PAYT with only 9 in favor of PAYT. Option 3 is the overwhelming choice. We are talking over 70 percent against PAYT. Along with their choices there have been many suggestions for solutions that will help implement any plan. This number or percentage has also been reflected with other councilors, as well as with the mayor who has
conceded it is running 70-30. To say the council is leaning to favoring PAYT may not be entirely true and the public shouldn’t give up and think it is a done deal. We are listening to you. Keep sending your wishes to e-mail at City Hall, email@example.com. nh.us . They all get distributed to all the councilors and mayor. Once again if you want to call your councilor or any councilor, the numbers are: Brenda Baer, 524-6349; Ava Doyle 393-6533; Matt Lahey 524-4283; Henry Lipman 528-0191; Bob Hamel 524-6360; Armand Bolduc 524-2514; and Mayor Seymour 524-6552. There is a special meeting on Wednesday, April 24th at 7 p.m. of the council, open to all, and at that time there will be a vote on which option the city will use. Your voices are being heard and we work for you, so let us know what you want. Councilor Brenda Baer Ward 4 - Laconia
Like to see indictments for war proﬁteering but that’s not illegal To the editor, In his recent letter to The Sun, my friend Steve Earle brought up an excellent point: he asks why, if I think that Bush and Co. should be in jail for “waging aggressive war,” did I not mention the Democrats who are at the very least morally culpable because they endorsed the Iraq War? Steve asks an excellent question and I will try to answer it. First, if I had made a list of everyone responsible for this war, my letter would have been much too long. Contrary to what Steve says, there WERE members of Congress who voted against supporting Bush’s war. I can agree with Steve, however, that those who did support it probably had a pretty good idea of what they were doing. Second, while the members of Congress are certainly guilty in a moral sense, it might be hard to try them in a court of law since it is the Executive
Branch that wages war and the Congressional endorsement and support for the Iraq war never reached the level of a Congressional Declaration of War. I am certainly not a prosecutor but prosecutors generally like to prosecute cases where there is at least a chance of winning. In America, we cannot convict people of crimes unless it can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt that they have broken a LAW. We are a nation of laws and you can do something totally despicable that is still completely legal! To be honest, I would much rather see Dick Cheney and a number of other individuals and corporations indicted for “war profiteering.” Unfortunately, this does not seem to be a crime in the United States or at least one that people take very seriously. Perhaps it should be. E. Scott Cracraft Giliford

LETTERS Use your right to free speech, don’t try & limit someone else’s
Per pupil cost for both rich & poor should follow the student
To the editor, Barbara McElroy’s letter of April 3rd claims that the U. S. Supreme Court decision in Citizens United resulted in “corporate interests taking precedence over the interests of the public” and not only “threatens both public health and our democracy”, but “is the biggest threat yet to the well being of our citizens”. She spends much of her time bashing corporations for promoting the sale and use of “unsafe and often dangerous products”, which she claims is directly related to the decision which allows corporations to unduly influence politicians. Citizens United is a decision based upon the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. It confirms a precedent of 35 years ago that the inherent worth of speech to inform the public does not depend on the identity of the speaker, whether corporation, union, association or individual. Under Citizens United, unions have the same First Amendment rights to fund their political speech as do corporations and individuals. Does Ms. McElroy object to unions using their member dues to lobby politicians and influence legislation, or is her disdain limited to corporations because she does not like the content of their political speech? The foundation of the First Amendment is that it protects and promotes the free exchange of ideas regardless of source and however personally disagreeable one may find the content of the speech.
To the editor, Before I get into the real reason for this letter, a big thanks to The Laconia Daily Sun for reviewing my radio program podcast where the mayor and three councilors took the time (2 hours) to address pay-as-you-throw for our rubbish pickup. There are folks who are still wrestling with what is the best way for their dollars to be used. There are Laconia taxpayers who see this as a major policy change and want to feel secure that they fully understand the plan. The Laconia Post Office and the Senior Center, across the street, are two stops where I can certainly get the “pulse of the city”. Usually it is a pleasant experience. Yesterday one fellow (known him for many decades) decided to give me his feelings re: my strong support of Parents Choice in Education, an alternative to the government schools. He does not want his
Ms. McElroy claims that health and safety standards such as asbestos and lead paint bans, vehicle safety standards, tobacco warning labels along with food and pharmaceutical safety “would not have occurred in the presence of” Citizens United. Really! What then is the role of the Food and Drug Administration, the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Environmental Protection Agency? These federal agencies and others issue regulations concerning health and safety of the public, and I fail to see how the decision in Citizens United prevents or hinders their respective authority. It should be noted that not all forms of commercial speech have full First Amendment protection. The ability of corporations to use commercial speech or advertising has traditionally been regulated by government for truth and accuracy. This is one of main responsibilities of The Federal Trade Commission. Ms. McElroy’s promotion of a Constitutional Amendment to re-establish the ability of government to regulate campaign spending is misguided. She should use her First Amendment rights to individually or collectively advocate her position on public issues rather than seek to diminish another’s Constitutional right of free speech. As Voltaire is quoted as saying: “I disapprove of what you say, but will defend to the death your right to say it”. Richard R. Gerken Meredith

What government function do they perform? Another American to buy into government education is always the answer. Did anyone ever consider that the customer/student is poorly served? In this state the lawmakers will vote down any help for students who would excel in a parents’ choice policy. The affluent, and the less fortunate should have the per pupil cost follow the student. If we are serious about a great education then let’s make certain that ALL students are equal when it comes to opportunity. Parents and students can “cherish” an education within an alternative to government schools. Niel Young Laconia
Will Mr. Cherien turn out to be the honest man some say he is? To the editor, On March 18, I sent the following letter to Ed Cherien of Iberdrola Renewables, with a second request sent on March 26. Here it is April 2nd and I’ve yet to get a response. Why? “Mr. Cherien: I am a resident of Grafton, New Hampshire and when you did a presentation at our town Fire House last fall, and then again at a Q&A session in Alexandria, New Hampshire you stated that if Iberdrola didn’t have the community’s support, you would not move forward on the project. As I’m sure you’re aware, both towns had warrant articles pertaining to this project on the ballot. The overwhelming response has been that we, the residents of these towns, do NOT want your wind turbines. At a meeting in January with the Groton
selectmen, Miles Sinclair spoke of what an honest and trustworthy man you are. As he has spent a great deal of time meeting with you, I can only he assume he knows you much better than those of us who’ve only had exposure to you at the above mentioned presentations and Q&A sessions. In light of him vouching for your character and there being video recorded of your statements in Alexandria, I look forward to seeing the press release published ASAP declaring that Iberdrola is ceasing to pursue the Wild Meadows Wind Project. I’d also appreciate it if you e-mail me a copy of the press release as well.” It’s time to show us if you’re the honest man claimed to be, or if your true colors tell a different story.

PSU, Center for Environment & Squam Lakes Assoc. agree to continue watershed protection collaboration PLYMOUTH — Plymouth State University and the Center for the Environment (CFE) and the Squam Lakes Association (SLA) have agreed to continue a joint agreement to protect and improve the health of the Squam Lakes Watershed ecosystem. PSU President Sara Jayne Steen and SLA President Peter Webster signed the agreement during a Wednesday ceremony. The objective is to facilitate and grow their joint capacity to engage in research, monitoring, education, and stewardship of the watershed. “This agreement is important because as we try to protect Squam Lake, we need a great laboratory and it allows PSU students interested in the environment to actually apply their work for the purpose of protecting this jewel,” Webster said. CFE Director Joe Boyer said this agreement helps gives PSU students applied research experience while providing a valuable service to the people of the Lakes Region. “Our relationship with communities in
the Lakes Region is important because we all value the services provided by a healthy environment. Together we can point the way to a brighter future for the local environment, community, and economy” said Boyer. Bathroome CFE and SLA have previously partnered on several research projects such as water quality, methods for reducing milfoil, a recreation study, and an analysis of land use regulations in the watershed towns. In addition, SLA has hired PSU students for summer field positions and often supports class field trips, providing invaluable hands on opportunities for PSU students. Currently, PSU assistant professor Shannon Rogers is working on a study of the ecosystem services provided by the Squam watershed. “These types of projects help both the SLA and CFE. Together we can increase our capacity and ability to serve the region,” said June Hammond Rowan, associate director of CFE and 2nd vice president of SLA.
LACONIA — City police continue to investigate a crash that closed Route 106 near the Belmont line at the Laconia Bypass interchange to all traffic for about a half hour yesterday morning. The initial investigation indicates a Mazda Tribute, driven by Hannah M. Hutchinson, 23 of Quincy, Mass. exited the bypass and failed to yield
to a northbound Ford bucket truck driven by Ronald Judd, 50, of Laconia. The crash occurred at 8:46 a.m. Laconia Police were assisted by Belmont Police at the scene. Both drivers were transported with what fire officials described a non life-threatening injuries. The accident remains under investigation.
NORTH KOREA from page 2 truce in 1953. The divided Korean Peninsula remains in a technical state of war six decades later, and Washington keeps 28,500 troops in South Korea to protect its ally. U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Washington was doing all it can to defuse the situation, echoing comments a day earlier by Secretary of State John Kerry. “Some of the actions they’ve taken over the last few weeks present a real and clear danger and threat to the interests, certainly of our allies, starting with South Korea and Japan and also the threats that the North Koreans have leveled directly at the United States regarding our base in Guam, threatened Hawaii, threatened the West Coast of the United States,” Hagel said Wednesday. In Pyongyang, the military statement said North Korean troops had been authorized to counter U.S. “aggression” with “powerful practical military counteractions,” including nuclear weapons. “We formally inform the White House and Pentagon that the everescalating U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK and its reckless nuclear threat will be smashed by the strong will of all the united service personnel and people and cutting-edge smaller, lighter and diversified nuclear strike means,” an unnamed spokesman from the General Bureau of the Korean
People’s Army said in a statement carried by state media, referring to North Korea by its formal name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. “The U.S. had better ponder over the prevailing grave situation.” However, North Korea’s nuclear strike capabilities remain unclear. Pyongyang is believed to be working toward building an atomic bomb small enough to mount on a long-range missile. Long-range rocket launches designed to send satellites into space in 2009 and 2012 were widely considered covert tests of missile technology, and North Korea has conducted three underground nuclear tests, most recently in February. “I don’t believe North Korea has to capacity to attack the United States with nuclear weapons mounted on missiles, and won’t for many years. Its ability to target and strike South Korea is also very limited,” nuclear scientist Siegfried Hecker, a senior fellow at the Center for International Security and Cooperation at Stanford University, said this week. “And even if Pyongyang had the technical means, why would the regime want to launch a nuclear attack when it fully knows that any use of nuclear weapons would result in a devastating military response and would spell the end of the regime? “ he said in answers posted to CISAC’s website.

After completing a second successful season, Tilton Winter Farmers’ Market looking for new home BY ADAM DRAPCHO THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
TILTON — Joan O’Connor’s been in this position before. Four years ago, she partnered with a Concord greenhouse to start a winter farmers’ market. She worked to grow that market, and by the end of the second year was proud of the vibrant weekly source for locally-produced food and goods. However, the business partner she worked with declined to renew the relationship for a third year, instead choosing to run the operation himself. “I’m still fuming,” she said, when asked about the Concord market. “They helped themselves to my market. I had to start from scratch.” O’Connor rose to the challenge, proving she could replicate her success. She was fortunate to find a much more benevolent partner in Tilon, the car dealer AutoServ, which owned an unused building on Route 3, across the street from the company’s high profile main location. Now, after two successful years running the Tilton Winter Farmers’ Market, O’Connor finds herself again looking into a future without a secure location. She learned recently that AutoServ would be seeking a tenant for the building, and if they are successful in their search, she wouldn’t be able to fill the same building next winter with shoppers and vendors every weekend. At least this time, the potential parting is far more amicable. She may even be able to host a third season of winter market hosted by AutoServ, if the building is still vacant at the end of autumn. However, what she’d really like is a permanent location. She’s already proven that there’s plenty of interest, both among local growers and those who would like to buy food grown by neighbors. Her first winter in Tilton, she held markets on Saturdays and saw as many as 1,200 to 1,600 shoppers visit each day. Her second season of markets, which concluded this past weekend, she held markets on both Saturdays and Sundays, seeing between 800 and 900 shoppers on each day. Vendors were similarly enthusiastic. She was able to fit 44 of them in the space, offering meats, eggs, dairy products, and vegetables that were either produced using winter growing techniques or harvested in warmer months and frozen or stored. Were there more space, O’Connor could have welcomed many more farmers; she said she had a waiting list of about 90 vendors who wanted to set up at her market. After a meeting yesterday with the general manager of the Tanger Outlet Mall in Tilton, O’Connor is
Joan O’Connor, left, founder/owner of the Tilton Winter Farmers Market had many in the community to thank on the last seasonal day on Saturday, including the AutoServ family for providing the building for a second year. Behind her (l-r) are Paul Gaudet Jr., Roland Gamelin, and Sen. Andrew and Donna Hosmer and children, Bridgid, 11, Amelia, Ava and Drew, all 8.( Daryl Carlson for The Laconia Daily Sun)
happy to report that she’s “in the planning stages” of offering a Friday afternoon market in that facility’s parking lot during the summer months. She’ll have to pare down her vendor list to 30, as that’s all that she can fit in the space. For O’Connor, who grows and sells composting worms on a farm in Henniker, the Tanger site is a welcome development, a chance for her to do what she loves for the summer. She’s hoping that, by the time winter comes around again, she’ll have found a place to permanently site and build a winter market. She’ll consider locations along the I-93 corridor, such as Manchester or Concord, but she likes the Tilton location. “It’s been a good two years. People came to the

market, it was well-received here. It worked in this region, I like it here,” she said. By continuing to be a visible presence in Tilton this summer, she’s hoping someone will approach her. “I need a location,” she said. Ideally, she’d like a place with an abundance of natural sunlight, one which would provide a welcome respite in the harsh cold of winter. At the least, she needs 12,000-square-feet of space, accessibility, plenty of parking and visible from highly-trafficked throughways. “I love the challenge of making this work,” she said. “There’s some young farmers in this area. They are coming up hard and strong, good, ethical farmsee next page

LRGHEALTHCARE from page one million surplus of the New Hampshire Medical Malpractice Joint Underwriting Association (JUA) to the general fund. LRGHealthcare played a major role in challenging the ploy and was awarded $5.1 million when the policyholders’ claim to the surplus was upheld by the New Hampshire Supreme Court. The award lessened the adverse impacts of the decisions by the state to levy the MET at 5.5 percent on the net income from patients services and withhold payments for uncompensated care. Lipman stressed that while coping with trying financial pressures LRGHealthcare provided community benefits with an aggregate value of $35.9 million in 2012, which included $15.9 million in subsidized medical services, $13.3 million in unreimbursed costs for Medicaid patients and $4.6 million in free or discounted care. In addition, the company incurred $15.6 million in unreimbursed costs for Medicare patients and $2.96 million in uncollectable debts while providing $3.1 million in discounts to uninsured patients. During the the year, LRGHealthcare introduced several new services and programs, which were highlighted at the meeting. Dr. Paul Racicot reported on the progress of Convenience Care, the walk-in clinic for the treatment of minor ailments and injuries, which has cared for some 2,000 patients since opening in December. He that the hours, originally 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week, are being “tweaked” to account for heavier than anticipated traffic in the early morning, especially on Saturdays, which he said took him by surprise. The charge of $150 a visit, Racicot said, is the lowest in the state. As part of the hospital rather than a free-standing facility, he explained that the clinic ensures a continuum of care while noting that only five-percent of patients have been referred to the emergency room. Dr. Carolyn Crosby described the growth of the Palliative Care Unit since it began in 2007. The team of physicians, nurses, social workers and chaplains not only ease the pain and symptoms of those with severe or terminal medical conditions but also from preceding page ers. I want to help them make a living... We need a better marketplace, a good, established farmers’ market.” Dennis Gaudet, president of AutoServ, said O’Connor can count him as one of her fans. “It’s been great,” he said. Financially, the market is a loss compared to what the company would realize from a long-term renter, but the relationship has proven to be a powerful public relations benefit. He would be willing to continue the

assist patients and their families with the difficult decisions facing them. partnership, in some capacity, he said. Gaudet has become a farmers’ market convert in the course of the experiment. A self-described “city boy at heart,” Gaudet said, “The closest I ever got to a farmers’ market was Market Basket,” referring to the nearby supermarket. However, he’s come to love the freshness and intrinsic advantages of locally-produced food. “We really learned from the experience. The quality’s there, I think it’s better for my family.”
Still a part-time presence limited to inpatients, Crosby said that the unit has proven its worth by shortening hospital stays and reducing readmissions, especially of nursing home residents. Dr. Raza Shariff and Carole Lines-Domin introduced the Weight Institute of New Hampshire, which offers not only all forms of bariatric surgery but a range of services and programs to reduce weight and combat obesity by exercise regimens, lifestyle changes and sound nutrition.

COACH from page 2 was suspended for three games, fined $75,000 and ordered to attend anger management classes. University President Robert Barchi agreed to the penalty. Pernetti initially said Tuesday he and Barchi viewed the video in December. The president issued a statement Wednesday, saying he didn’t see it until Tuesday and then moved to fire the 44-year-old coach for repeated abusive conduct. Through a school spokesman, Pernetti backed up his president and said Barchi did not view the video until this week. “Yesterday, I personally reviewed the video evidence, which shows a chronic and pervasive pattern of disturbing behavior,” Barchi said in a statement. “I have now reached the conclusion that Coach Rice cannot continue to serve effectively in a position that demands the highest levels of leadership, responsibility and public accountability. He cannot continue to coach at Rutgers University.” The video shows numerous clips of Rice at practice during his three years at the school firing basketballs at players, hitting them in the back, legs, feet and shoulders. It also shows him grabbing players by their jerseys and yanking them around the court. Rice can also be heard yelling obscenities
and using gay slurs. Several college coaches said they had never seen anything like the Rutgers video and it broke a cardinal rule: Never put your hands on a player. “Don’t tell me that’s the old way. That’s the wrong way,” said John Thompson Jr., the Hall of Famer who led Georgetown to the 1984 national title. Thompson, the father of current Hoyas coach John Thompson III, called the images “child abuse.” UConn women’s coach Geno Auriemma, winner of seven national titles, said “there is no line that could be drawn that would make that behavior acceptable.” The most famous case of a coach accused of abusing a player is the one involving Bob Knight of Indiana. The university put him on a zero-tolerance policy in 2000 after an investigation into a former player’s allegations that the coach had choked him during a practice. When a student alleged that Knight grabbed him later that year, Knight was fired. Knight, who now works for ESPN, couldn’t be reached Wednesday. The Rice video drew outrage on campus and all the way to the capital in Trenton, with lawmakers and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie supporting the firing at the state’s flagship public university.
LHS from page one Key to the recommended change is one hour of math, social studies and English for the entire year during the morning “block” during freshman and sophomore years. Before junior year, students would meet again with guidance counselors who will help them with a career “pathway.” Pathways in the junior and senior years would be in four core areas — industrial engineering, design, building and manufacturing; health and human services; arts, media and communication; and business, management and administrative. All four pathways will have a technical and an academic component to them. The newly recommended format is also more academically rigorous, said McCollum, and more aligned with the new “common core assessments” that
are defined as standards designed to be robust and relevant to the real world. School Board members had a number of questions for McCollum, including how the students who fall behind will be helped and what will be done in seventh and eighth grades for basic skills preparation. Addressing the first, McCollum said there are a variety of methods students can access to get back on track including remediation — VLACS, or the Visual Learning Academy that is on-line, after school support, afterschool library support and summer school. To the second, McCollum said common core literacy and common core mathematics will be mastered before high school. He said skills build upon each other through successive years and “mastery must be achieved.” When asked, McCollum said the district would need a year to implement the Freshman House and an additional year to implement the Sophomore House. He told the board that if it chooses to go with the new model they should consider a six- to seven-year commitment.

Belknap Commission asking for supplemental appropriation of $200k it says will generate $400k more in revenue at the county nursing home LACONIA — The fraught relationship between the Belknap County Convention and the Belknap County Commission will be tested later this month when the commissioners appear before the executive committee of the convention to request a transfer of funds and a supplemental appropriation. The commissioners will ask to transfer $52,000 from the contingency account to fund a full-time corrections officer at the county jail. When the budget was adopted, the commission contends the convention inadvertently stripped the funding for the existing position not once but twice. The commission will also request approximately $200,000 to expand the capacity of the nursing home to accept skilled nursing patients for shortterm stays while undergoing physical and occupa-
tional therapy. Skilled nursing services represent a source of revenue and the commissioners project the investment will generate a return of some $400,000. Since the services are provided by a third party agency under an existing contract, adding to capacity requires no additional personnel. Representative Colette Worsman (R-Meredith), who chairs the convention has tentatively scheduled the executive committee to meet on Monday, April 15 at a time to be announced to consider the commission’s requests as well as review the county’s expenditures in the first quarter of 2013. Meanwhile, the executive committee will also meet a week earlier, on Monday, April 8 at 12:30 p.m. to review the county expenditures in 2012. — Michael Kitch
SHERIFF from page 2 Nelson said Maynard was fleeing from a deputy and crashed his car into a bridge in nearby Delbarton. Maynard got out of the vehicle and pulled a gun on the deputy, who fired in self-defense, Nelson said. Authorities did not announce what charges Maynard might face. Crum was elected last year and had just taken office in January, but he’d already helped indict dozens of suspected drug dealers through the county’s new Operation Zero Tolerance. It’s unclear whether that crusade was related to his death, but residents and county officials suspect it. County Commission President John Mark Hubbard said Crum’s team has targeted people “who spread the disease of addiction among our residents.” “We were and we are proud of him and his service,” he said. “To say Eugene will be missed is a vast understatement.” The county courthouse was evacuated and closed after the shooting. Streets into the city of about 3,200 were temporarily blocked off and officers held white sheets around the crime scene, Crum’s body further shielded by two vehicles. Later, a bouquet of red roses with a red ribbon was fastened to a guardrail above the parking lot. Though there is no indication of any connection, Crum’s killing comes on the heels of a Texas district
attorney and his wife being shot to death in their home over the weekend, and just weeks after Colorado’s corrections director also was gunned down at his home. Delegate Harry Keith White, who campaigned with Crum last year, said his friend was killed in the same place where he parked his car most days to eat lunch, near the site of a former pharmacy known for illegally distributing pills. He wanted to be certain the “pill mill” remained closed. “I think anybody you ask would tell you he was a great guy, always with a positive attitude, always trying to help people,” White said. “It’s just a sad, sad day for Mingo County and the state of West Virginia.” Operation Zero Tolerance was Crum’s way to make good on a campaign pledge, White said. State, federal and local authorities have all tried to crack down on West Virginia’s drug problem, which centers on the illegal sale of prescription drugs in the southern counties. Mingo County is in the southwest corner of West Virginia, on the border with Kentucky. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says West Virginia has the second-highest rate of drug overdose deaths in the nation. And in February, federal officials said they had prosecuted more than 200 pill dealers in the past two years.

N.H. House Democrats pass $11B budget that doesn’t include casino revenue CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire’s House passed an $11 billion, two-year budget package Wednesday that does not support legalizing a casino, a move that drew quick criticism from the governor and Senate. Gov. Maggie Hassan, a Democrat, criticized the plan put together by the Democratic majority because the House cut spending rather than include the $80 million in her budget from licensing a yet-tobe-approved casino. “We can address the challenges of the House budget by moving forward with a plan to license one high-end, highly regulated casino that will help us invest in our priorities,” Hassan said in a statement. Her call for the House to approve a casino was echoed by Senate Finance Chairman Chuck Morse, a Salem Republican and sponsor of a casino bill passed to the House last month. Morse said the House budget relies on inflated revenue estimates as well as unnecessary tax increases on gas, diesel and cigarettes while passing the casino bill “would provide the state with millions in non-tax revenue allowing us to fund our priorities, from education to infrastructure, without increasing taxes on New Hampshire citizens.” The House’s decision not to embrace gambling means the differences over revenue sources is likely destined to be settled in June, after the Senate passes its own budget. Without the gambling revenues, House budget writers scaled back education aid, such as giving a smaller increase to the state’s university system and putting off implementation of a new school construction program. It also offered less aid to the state’s hospitals to offset Medicaid and charity care costs than Hassan had proposed. The House proposal spends about $2.7 billion from GUILTY from page one day, he was sentenced to serve 1 1/2 to 3 years for the conspiracy to commit robbery charge. He was also sentenced to serve 3 1/2 to 7 years — all suspended — for being an accomplice to theft. He was credited with 113 day of pre-trial confinement. Justin LaValley, 25, of Rochester pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to committee robbery, one count of conspiracy to commit theft and one count of second degree assault. After agreeing to serve 2 1/2 to 7 years in jail for the conspiracy to commit robbery with six months suspended for good behavior in Belknap County Superior Court yesterday, O’Neill rejected his plea saying he didn’t deserve getting the possibility of six months of his sentence being suspended. The two sides returned later in the afternoon and agreed LaValley would serve the entire 2 1/2 years of the minimum sentence. LaValley was also given a suspended sentence of 3 1/2 to 7 years for the second degree assault and a suspended sentence of 3 1/2 to 7 years for conspiracy to commit theft. He was credited with 116 days of pre-trial confinement. The court also ordered both men to pay the Alton Village Store $1,122 and $1,000 to Cincinnati Mutual Insurance Company. The robbery of the female clerk took place at 10:10 p.m. when the two accosted her as she went to the night deposit box. She chased LaValley and he threw her to the ground as he fled, causing her to suffer a concussion. According to his attorney, LaValley deserved some consideration because he admitted what he had done when the Alton Police went to his house to question him. Although the victim wasn’t in court, LaValley expressed sorrow for his crimes to both the victim and the town of Alton. He told O’Neill that it was time he “grew up and stopped acting like a punk.” County Attorney Melissa Guldbransen prosecuted LaValley. She said she wanted to completment Alton Det. Jason Tremblay and the combined work of he Alton Police Department whose work led to the guilty pleas of both men. She also thanked the bank, which provided video surveillance of the attack to Alton Police. — Gail Ober
state taxes, roughly a 4 percent increase over the current budget and $52 million less than Hassan proposed. The $11 billion budget when federal and other funds are totaled is 10 percent higher. Democrats passed their package 194-172, largely along party lines. The House — regardless of whether Democrats or Republicans held a majority — has considered dozens of casino bills over the years but never passed one.
The House budget also contains a phased-in 12 cent hike in the gas and diesel tax to pay for highway improvements that Hassan has not ruled out as a funding source to fix deteriorating roads and bridges. The House went along with Hassan’s recommendation to raise the cigarette tax 30 cents to $1.98 per pack to raise money for spending, overriding a Republican effort to limit the increase to 20 cents. see next page
PRISON from page 2 apples cost comparison of state vs. private operation of correctional facilities.” The state also released its own report Wednesday — prepared jointly by the Department of Administrative Services and the Department of Corrections staff — that raised similar concerns. “We were more focused on compliance with court orders that have been out there since the 1970s and have evolved through time,” said Mike Connor, director of plant and property management for DAS. “We were concerned about whether staff would be adequate or have the skills necessary to meet those requirements.” A looming concern — and central to a lawsuit filed last year — is that female inmates don’t have the same access to programs and facilities as male prisoners. None of the four proposals were for a women’s prison, although they did include hybrid prisons. In a related development Wednesday, the House approved spending $38 million to build a new women’s prison. The Senate has yet to vote. The House also passed a bill that would ban the state from using private prisons under all but emergency circumstances. The MGT report also raised concerns about the high staff turnover rate in private prisons, saying the lowest paid guards in the industry make half what an officer at the state prison in Concord does.
“High turnover rate ... can impact the skills and stability of the workforce and have a direct impact on the safety and security of the facility operations,” the report states. The four companies that submitted proposals were Corrections Corporation of America; the GEO Group; Management and Training Corporation; and The Hunt Group. Arnie Alpert, New Hampshire program coordinate for the American Friends Service Committee, said the state’s decision not to pursue a privately run prison was welcome news. He noted that the four companies are the giants of the private prison industry, “yet they did not explain how they would comply with various legal requirements the state is under.” The state paid MGT $171,000 to vet the 60 boxes of data that came with the proposals and to develop a financial model that showed current and future prison expenses. MGT determined that the net cost in 2012 dollars of housing inmates — including staffing, overhead, maintenance, and food — is $36,435 per male inmate and $37,573 per female inmate. The consultants projected that over 20 years, the figures would increase by 68 percent for the men and 99 percent for the women. “It’s a great tool the state can use for ‘what if’ scenarios,” Connor said.

Red Sox beat Yankees again, this time 7-4 NEW YORK (AP) — Clay Buchholz chilled the Yankees’ bats, speedy Jackie Bradley Jr. got his first major league hit and the Boston Red Sox beat New York 7-4 on a cold Wednesday night to open a season with consecutive wins for the first time since 1999. Pitcher Hiroki Kuroda became the latest Yankees player to get hurt, leaving in the second inning with a 2-0 deficit, four batters after Shane Victorino’s line drive bruised the middle finger of his pitching hand. While the Red Sox under new manager John Farrell are off to their best start since going 5-0 in 1999, New York has been outscored 15-6 and outhit 26-15. The Yankees have failed to hold a lead at any point in their opening two games for the first time since 1998. Boston burst ahead 6-0 with a four-run third against Cody Eppley, and the Yankees never challenged. Buchholz (1-0) allowed one run and six hits in seven innings, struck out four and walked two. Joel Hanrahan pitched the ninth for his first save with Boston. Jacoby Ellsbury drove in two runs for the Red Sox, and Bradley singled up the middle in the third for a hit he’ll long remember. New York said Kuroda (0-1) was being sent for X-rays and other tests. The Yankees already have five All-Stars on the disabled list: shortstop Derek Jeter, third baseman Alex Rodriguez, first baseman Mark Teixeira, outfielder Curtis Granderson and pitcher Phil Hughes. Travis Hafner and Vernon Wells hit their first home runs for the Yankees, a solo drive by Hafner in the fourth and a three-run drive by Wells in the eighth against Alfredo Aceves. Before the first pitch, the Yankee Stadium sound system played Foreigner’s “Hot Blooded.” But it was 43
degrees at gametime, and Boston shortstop Jose Iglesias and first baseman Mike Napoli wore ski masks. The crowd of 40,216 was the smallest for a Red Sox-Yankees game in the Bronx since 27,631 were across the street at the old ballpark on May 27, 1999, according to STATS. And for the second straight game, the stadium was nearly empty in the late innings. Kuroda, New York’s most dependable starting pitcher last year at 16-11, allowed three singles in the first and fell behind on Jarrod Saltalamacchia’s two-out hit. Victorino’s drive hit Kuroda’s right hand leading off the second inning. Kuroda was checked by the Yankees and stayed in the game, then hit Bradley with a pitch in the lower leg. One out later, Kuroda walked Ellsbury on four pitches and forced in a run by hitting Daniel Nava in the lower leg. Yankees manager Joe Girardi went to the mound along with pitching coach Larry Rothschild, trainer Steve Donohue and an interpreter — allowed for the first time under a rules change this year. Kuroda left after 1 1-3 innings, the shortest start of his five big league seasons, and was replaced by Eppley. Run-scoring singles by Victorino and Bradley made it 4-0 in the third, and Iglesias’ double chased Eppley. Ellsbury greeted Adam Warren with a tworun single. Hafner, wearing short sleeves, homered into the Yankees bullpen in right-center. That was the first home run of the year for New York, which hit a team-record 245 last season. Dustin Pedroia added an RBI grounder in the sixth.
from preceding page House Republicans offered more than a dozen amendments to increase spending on programs ranging from school construction to moving up the effective dates for business tax breaks Hassan and House Democrats would delay to save money. They proposed paying out less aid to the state’s hospitals to foot the bill. House Finance Chairwoman Mary Jane Wallner, D-Concord, said further reducing hospital aid would hurt the state’s chances of implementing a managed care program. “To make managed care work, we need the hospitals working with us, and if we don’t reimburse them for uncompensated care, we probably won’t find a partner willing to work with us,” she said. The state has been stymied in implementing a managed care program for Medicaid because the hospitals have so far refused to participate; ten of the state’s largest hospitals are suing the state over the reimbursement rate. Hassan had included more aid in her budget in an
attempt to win the hospitals over and was critical of the House’s decision to budget less for aid than she recommended. Republicans also balked at giving Hassan authority to take money from programs with specific funding sources to close a possible deficit in this year’s budget. The state has more than 200 dedicated funds for programs ranging from dam maintenance to land conservation. The budget package requires Hassan to get permission first from the 10-member joint legislative Fiscal Committee. The House also defeated efforts to allow new charter schools and unlimited expansion of existing schools. The House budget establishes a moratorium on new publicly funded charter schools and limits on enrollment in existing schools. The House also passed a $227 million public works budget for the next two years that contains money for a new 224-bed women’s prison and transitional facility in Concord by the men’s prison. The project would cost $38 million and is the largest single item in the proposed budget.

LACONIA — A discussion on durable — or medical — powers of attorney in New Hampshire will take place this coming Monday at 6 p.m. at St. Francis Healthcare at 406 Court St. The session will examine the implications of these documents from a both a legal and personal conscience perspective.

Moultonborough garden program kicks off MOULTONBOROUGH — The town is accepting applications for its new Community Garden plots located at the Lions Club property on Old Route 109. The applications may be obtained on-line at the Town’s web site www.moultonboroughnh.gov by clicking on Town Committees and then clicking on Community Garden or Town Hall. Under this new program, a resident — whether year-round or seasonal — or taxpayer may sign up for one or more plots in which to raise fruits and vegetables. Participants may access their 20-foot by 30-foot plot(s) on Memorial Day weekend and must have it fully cleaned up by Oct. 30. The plots are being fully tilled by the Town and provided with compost and water for $60 per plot. The Conservation Commission and its Commu-
nity Garden Sub-Committee have been working for six months to set up the garden program. “This is a great opportunity for those with limited land area or poor soil conditions to grow nutritious, inexpensive, and delicious food for their families, friends and — if they choose — to donate to those in need,” said Ken Kasarjian, sub-committee chairman. Selectmen Chairman Joel Mudgett said, “Moultonborough has a great tradition of community projects and this is just one more way in which citizens can interact with their neighbors while providing an opportunity to be a bit more self reliant in a safe environment.” He also thanked the Lions Club for its efforts, including contributing toward the electrical costs.
PLYMOUTH — Lamson Library and Learning Commons at Plymouth State University will present “The Secret of Small: miniARTures,” an exhibition by PSU Art Department member Henrieke I. Strecker, opening this Sunday from 5–7 p.m. Sunday. The exhibition will be located near the information desk on the Lamson Library’s main floor through June 3. Strecker has been involved in photography and alternative photographic processes for 30 years, exhibiting in Germany, the U.S. and online. She has
also experimented widely with printmaking and is fluent in digital media, including video. Locally, she has taught workshops at the AVA Gallery in Lebanon, Holderness School and New Hampton School. “When you look closely at these original miniatures, you will notice that the quiet expression in color, line and texture is larger than their actual size. The connection you will have with them is intimate in nature,” says Strecker. Attendees are invited to meet Strecker at Sunday’s opening reception.
CONCORD — State Sen. Jeanie Forrester has announced that she will hold a public forum about the Local Government Center with the center’s recently named interim director George Bald on Tuesday from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Tilton Senior Center, 11 Grange Road. The forum will give members of the public a chance to ask questions about changes at the LGC following an order by the state to refund $50 million to cities and towns and for the LGC to reorganize its operations. Bald, the former commissioner of the state Department of Resources and Economic Development, was named to head the LGC after Maura Carroll stepped
down as executive director in February. Last August, the state ordered the LGC, which operates risk pools that provide local governments with medical, property, workers’ compensation and other insurance, to return $50 million in 2010 overpayments to its members. The LGC was also ordered to change operating procedures and become more transparent. Forrester, R- Meredith, hosted a similar LGC forum in Plymouth last month. Forrester is asking those planning to attend the Tilton forum to contact her by Friday either by calling 271-2609 or seding an emailing to firstname.lastname@example.org

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You don’t have to be No. 1 overall to be the very best. You’re not really in competition with anyone else anyway today. No one would have the first clue about what it takes to be the best you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The moon lends you an extra dollop of influence. You’ll be surprised at how much feeling, meaning and inspiration you can deliver when you simply look into another person’s eyes and smile. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It’s rare when this happens, but it will happen today. You’ll get this indescribably profound feeling, and you’ll just know that you’re in the right place at the right time and it’s all OK. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 4). It will be an ego-boosting year, and you’ll have to be careful not to get a big head over all the attention you get! A new responsibility puts you in charge this month. Power doesn’t interest you, but making a difference will. You’ll trade in an old habit for improvements in June. July finds you more in love than ever. Scorpio and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 5, 50, 25 and 14.
by Chad Carpenter
ARIES (March 21-April 19). The wind does not command the sailboat. If that were true, all boats would wind up in the same place. Don’t forget that you are the captain. The way you set your sails determines the direction you go. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). All of the scenarios that didn’t work out led you to the situations that worked brilliantly. Today, you do not even mind which way it goes, because you know both have equal merit. You always find your way. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Do not confuse the idea of nurturing with being touchyfeely or soft. Nurturing is a way of letting others relax enough to grow into the next move. Today will show you that you can be nurturing and still be tough. CANCER (June 22-July 22). The No. 1 rule of remaining a bit mysterious is to avoid answering questions that were not asked of you. This is also an excellent principle to apply to today’s negotiations. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’re not asking that every day be epic, but you’re a little tired of the same old, same old right now, and you’re not sure how best to mix it up. Luckily, a fresh face in your scene will do that for you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Laughing hard is noisy. Laughing harder is silent. It’s as if the hilarity itself takes over and the noise can’t come out. That’s the cosmic gift of the day: extreme humor. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Even innocent people sometimes clam up suspiciously when the police are around. Why is this? The mere idea of authority has a way of making us ultra-accountable. You can use this principle to maintain order today. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Fellow Scorpio Zig Ziglar made the point that calling traffic lights “stop lights” is pessimistic because they are also “go lights.” And you will find many more optimistic ways of expressing yourself in your present good mood! SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Some long to know what people think of them -- but not you, not now anyway. You are so busy doing your thing that you don’t even care (SET ITAL) if (END ITAL) they think of you, just as long as they stay out of your way. You’re on a mission.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Thursday, April 4, the 94th day of 2013. There are 271 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 4, 1968, civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., 39, was shot to death as he stood on a balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tenn. (James Earl Ray later pleaded guilty to assassinating King, then spent the rest of his life claiming he’d been the victim of a setup.) On this date: In 1818, Congress decided the flag of the United States would consist of 13 red and white stripes and 20 stars, with a new star to be added for every new state of the Union. In 1841, President William Henry Harrison succumbed to pneumonia one month after his inaugural, becoming the first U.S. chief executive to die in office. In 1850, the city of Los Angeles was incorporated. In 1912, China proclaimed a republic in Tibet, a move fiercely opposed by Tibetans. In 1933, the Navy airship USS Akron crashed in severe weather off the New Jersey coast with the loss of 73 lives. In 1949, 12 nations, including the United States, signed the North Atlantic Treaty in Washington, D.C. In 1960, Elvis Presley recorded “Are You Lonesome Tonight?” in Nashville for RCA Victor. In 1973, the twin towers of New York’s World Trade Center were officially dedicated. (The towers were destroyed in the terrorist attack of Sept. 11, 2001.) In 1975, more than 130 people, most of them children, were killed when a U.S. Air Force transport plane evacuating Vietnamese orphans crashlanded shortly after takeoff from Saigon. In 1983, the space shuttle Challenger roared into orbit on its maiden voyage. (It was destroyed in the disaster of January 1986.) In 1988, the Arizona Senate convicted Gov. Evan Mecham (MEE’-kuhm) of two charges of official misconduct, and removed him from office. (Mecham was the first U.S. governor to be impeached and removed from office in nearly six decades.) Ten years ago: U.S. forces seized Saddam International Airport outside Baghdad. Sammy Sosa of the Chicago Cubs became the 18th player to hit 500 career homers, connecting for a solo shot in a 10-9 loss to Cincinnati. Five years ago: Texas authorities started removing the first of more than 400 girls from a compound built by a polygamist sect. Lisa Montgomery was sentenced to death in Kansas City, Mo., for killing Bobbie Jo Stinnett (STIN’-net), a mother-to-be, and cutting the surviving baby from her womb. Pirates seized the French luxury yacht Le Ponant and its 30 crew members off the coast of Somalia. (The crew was released a week later; six alleged pirates ended up being captured.) One year ago: Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney unleashed a strong attack on President Barack Obama’s truthfulness, accusing him of running a “hide-and-seek” re-election campaign in an address to newspaper editors and publishers. A federal judge sentenced five former New Orleans police officers to prison for the deadly shootings on a bridge in the chaotic days following Hurricane Katrina.

Page 20 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, April 4, 2013
Dear Annie: Recently, I invited my best friend, “Evan,” and his family of four to join my family at a popular out-ofstate theme park. Our children are similar ages, and we have always gotten along well even though we live in different states. My wife and I are members of a vacation program and offered to use our hotel points to save Evan a great deal of money. We didn’t expect anything in return, but we had discussed how much fun we’d have together. This didn’t happen. Evan and his family ignored us, made no effort to interact with my wife or children, and had other friends and family join them at the resort and in our shared rooms. They frequently went their own way in the theme park and were distant during the rare times that we were together. The final insult occurred on the last day, when they simply left the resort without saying goodbye or even thanking us for the stay. Clearly, Evan took advantage of our kindness, and interactions since indicate that his family is oblivious to their behavior. Are we wrong to have expected them to spend time with us? Evan and I have a long history, and I want to preserve the friendship. I prefer to drop this issue, while my wife wants to wash our hands of these people completely. Is there a tactful way to address this and salvage the friendship? -- No Explanation Given Dear No: The friendship you are trying to preserve is the one between you and Evan, so let your wife know that she is off the hook. Even if there is some reason for their rude behavior, that is not an excuse. They also were unappreciative of your generosity, although that may have created some awkwardness that contributed to the problem. It’s fine for you to remain in contact with Evan, but don’t plan any more vacation trips. If Evan should bring up the possibility of getting the families together again, simply say
that he and his kids seemed uninterested in spending time with you before, so you think it’s best not to repeat the experience. Dear Annie: I’m 26 years old, happily married and have a beautiful 2-year-old daughter. My oldest brother is an alcoholic. He was in a terrible auto accident last year and nearly died. I don’t want to enable him by continuing to welcome him into my life. I’ve tried to explain this to my parents and my sister, but my words fall on deaf ears. Last month, my brother and I got into an argument at my parents’ house because he is jealous that I have a better relationship with his children than he does. It ended with me saying, “Stay out of my life.” Now, I’m the black sheep of the family while the others still welcome my brother with open arms. I love him, but I can’t deal with watching him kill himself. Am I wrong to walk away? -- Loving Sister in Missouri Dear Sister: This isn’t about right or wrong. It’s about what you can live with. Tell your parents that you are contacting Al-Anon (al-anon.alateen.org) because you want to do what’s best for your brother and also for your family. It will help you deal with your brother and at the same time let your parents know that you care about him. Dear Annie: “Sticky” said she’s having a hard time in Florida because people don’t use their air conditioning. We moved to Florida 40 years ago. It took us a couple of years to get acclimated, and our electric bill was an incentive to be moderate with the thermostat. A few years ago, we moved from humid Florida to bonedry Arizona, and that has been a harder adjustment. Not everyone has the same definition of comfortable. -- Old Man Gone West
