Council thinking twice about firefighter grant vote By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — After a consultant recommended the city add eight firefighters during the next three years, City Councilor Henry Lipman (Ward 3) has asked his fellow councilors to reconsider their earlier decision to reject a federal grant that would fund the compen-
sation and benefits of four firefighters for two years when the council meets on Monday. In January, against the recommendation of Fire Chief Ken Erickson, the council voted to refuse a Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) grant of $642,028 awarded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA) by a vote of four-to-two, with councilors Matt Lahey (Ward 2) and Ava Doyle (Ward 1) dissenting. Both Erickson and City Manager Scott Myers stressed that apart from the cost of outfitting the firefighters with turnout gear and equipping them with handheld radios, estimated at about $15,000, the grant would
fund their salaries, overtime and benefits for two years, with no requirement to retain them when the funding was exhausted. Myers explained that the purpose of the grant is to shorten response times and expand suppression capability while reducing the risk of injury to firefighters. see FIrEFIGHtErs page 8

Police found naked 5-year-old & variety of drugs in Union Ave. apartment By Gail OBer
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — Police have charged the two people who were arrested Thursday in a drug bust on Union Avenue with two counts each of allowing a child to be exposed to methamphetamine. Affidavits obtained from the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division yesterday state that when police went into the home of Nicholas Phelps, 26, and Courtney Rogers,

25, Rogers 5-year-old child was found naked and within reach of methamphetamine. The two charges are added to five charges against Phelps — three for narcotics possession and two for possession of narcotics with intent to sell them. Rogers, who is the mother of the young girl, is also charged with two counts of possession of narcotics. After their separate video appearances yesterday, Judge Jim Carroll ordered

After not seeing any activity around the apartment from 9 a.m. until 2:45 p.m. police “breached” the residence and found the little girl.

Obama apologizes for calling Calif. AG ‘best looking’
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama has apologized to California Attorney General Kamala Harris for causing a stir when he called her “the best-looking attorney general” at a Democratic fundraiser they attended together this week. A spokesman for Harris said she had a great conversation with Obama and strongly supports him but would not say whether she had accepted the president’s apology. Obama apologized to Harris by telephone Thursday night after returning from two days of fundraising in California, White House press secretary Jay Carney said. At a fundraiser in Silicon Valley earlier that day, Obama raised eyebrows when he said Harris “happens to be, by far, the best-looking attorney general in the country. It’s true! C’mon.” He prefaced the remark by saying she is “brilliant and she is dedicated and she is tough, and she is see HARRIS page 5

DENVER (AP) — A white supremacist prison gang member was arrested and another was still being sought for questioning Friday in the death of Colorado’s prisons chief as authorities investigated whether the gang had any ties to the killing. James Lohr, who has the words “Hard” and “Luck” tattooed where his eyebrows would be, was taken into custody early Friday in Colorado Springs. He was wanted for questioning in the slaying of Department of Corrections Director Tom Clements.
Authorities believe Lohr was in contact with gang associate Evan Ebel days before the killings of Clements and pizza delivery man Nate Leon. Police said they believe Ebel killed Leon and Clements less than a week before he died in a Texas shootout, but the motive is unclear. Clements was shot to death March 19 in Monument, just north of Colorado Springs. Leon was killed two days earlier. His body was found in the Denver suburb of Golden. Colorado Springs police arrested Lohr after a short foot chase that started when
officers tried to stop the car he was driving, according to a statement. Lohr was booked on felony evading charges and also held on three separate outstanding arrest warrants unrelated to the Clements case. He is scheduled to appear in court Monday. Authorities issued an alert Wednesday asking other law enforcement agencies to be on the lookout for Lohr and Thomas Guolee, both of Colorado Springs, who were identified as 211 Crew members. Ebel was a member of the same gang. see GANG page 4
NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — Rutgers’ coaching scandal spiraled deeper Friday, bringing down the popular athletic director and a school vice president while donors threatened to cut off their contributions to New Jersey’s largest public university. The day of mounting troubles for the school began with Athletic Director Tim Pernetti resigning over his failure to immediately fire coach Mike Rice, who was
caught on video hitting, kicking and taunting players with anti-gay slurs at practice. The video was shown Tuesday on ESPN, prompting outrage nationwide and on campus, where the coach’s conduct was especially sensitive because of the 2010 suicide of a student who killed himself after his roommate used a webcam to record him kissing another man. Rice was fired by Pernetti on Wednes-
day, but the athletic director immediately came under criticism for only suspending and fining the coach after the video was brought to his attention four months ago. Pernetti said Friday he wanted to fire Rice on the spot but did not because the consensus among school officials at the time was that it didn’t warrant dismissal. Rutgers President Robert Barchi came see RUTGERS page 9
GATINEAU, Quebec (AP) — A man shot dead another man at a day care center in Quebec then killed himself, and the 53 children present were evacuated unharmed. Police said some may have watched the killings. For a moment, Canada feared its own
version of last year’s deadly school shooting in the U.S., where 20 young children were killed. Police on Friday received a call about an armed man with a shotgun threatening people, Gatineau Police Chief Mario Harel said. They arrived to find one man dead
with a shotgun beside him and a second man, an unidentified employee of the day care, also dead. Harel said the shooting seemed to be related to a recent separation between a couple but didn’t elaborate. see QUEBEC page 10

At least 36 killed in Nigeria bus crash with gas tanker
LAGOS, Nigeria (AP) — An official says at least 36 people have been killed in a bus crash in which a gasoline tanker exploded in southwest Nigeria. The explosion happened Friday afternoon in Nigeria’s Edo state. Federal Road Safety Corps spokesman Jonas Agwu said three people survived the collision between the large bus and the tanker. Agwu said the crash resulted in a fire that burned for hours, making it difficult for officials to know how many people died in the crash. Nigeria has some of West Africa’s worst roads, despite its oil wealth. Massive potholes and poor paving, coupled with aggressive drivers, are blamed for many crashes. World Health Organization data shows Nigeria suffers from one of the world’s highest traffic fatality rates.
Federal judge makes morning-after pill available to under-17 girls without Rx WASHINGTON (AP) — The morning-after pill might become as easy to buy as aspirin. In a scathing rebuke accusing the Obama administration of letting election-year politics trump science, a federal judge ruled Friday that there should be no age restrictions on the sale of emergency contraception without a doctor’s prescription. Today, buyers must prove at the pharmacy that they’re 17 or older; everyone else must see a doctor first. U.S. District Judge Edward Korman of New York blasted the government’s decision on age limits as “arbitrary, capricious and unreasonable,” and ordered an end to the restrictions within 30 days. The Justice Department was evaluating whether to appeal, and spokeswoman Allison Price said there would be a prompt decision. President Barack Obama had supported the 2011 decision setting age limits, and White House spokesman Jay Carney said Friday the president hasn’t changed his position. “He believes it was the right common-sense approach to this issue,” Carney said. If the court order stands, Plan B One-Step and its generic versions could move from behind pharmacy counters out to drugstore shelves — ending a decade-plus struggle by women’s groups for easier access to these pills, which can prevent pregnancy if taken soon enough after unprotected sex. Saying the sales restrictions can make it hard for women of any age to buy the pills, Korman described the administration’s decision, in the year before the 2012 presidential and congressional elections, as “politically motivated, scientifically unjustified and contrary to agency precedent.” Women’s health specialists hailed the ruling. “It has been clear for a long time that the medical and scientific community think this should be fully over the counter and is safe for women of all ages to use,” said Dr. Susan Wood, who resigned as FDA’s women’s health chief in 2005 to protest Bush administration foot-dragging over Plan B. Half the nation’s pregnancies every year are unintended. Doctors’ groups say more access to morningafter pills — by putting them near the condoms and spermicides so people can learn about them and buy them quickly — could cut those numbers. They see little risk in overuse, as the pills cost $40 to $50 apiece. “The fact that it’s over the counter does not make people have sex,” said Dr. Angela Diaz, director of New York’s Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center. Social conservatives criticized the ruling. “There is a real danger that Plan B may be given to young girls, under coercion or without their consent,” said Anna Higgins of the Family Research Council. “The involvement of parents and medical professionals acts as a safeguard for these young girls. However, today’s ruling removes these common-sense protections.”

Scott Brown suddenly topic A in N.H. politics BOSTON (AP) — Former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown has set New Hampshire’s political world ablaze by hinting he may run for office in the Granite State, drawing sharp criticism from Democrats and widespread interest from Republican leaders. Brown’s political future is far from certain, but the former tea party darling, now a Fox News contributor, is well known in New Hampshire and maintains a national fundraising network that forces people across the political spectrum to take him seriously. “Scott Brown is well liked up here,” New Hampshire GOP Chairman Jennifer Horn said Friday. “New Hampshire Republicans want to hear what he has to say. If he decides to run, I think they’ll give him an honest chance.” After delivering a speech in New Hampshire on Thursday night, Brown told reporters he’s likely not “done with politics” and emphasized his connection to the state, which he described “like a second home.”
Asked if he might challenge Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire in 2014, he said: “I’m not going to rule out anything right now.” There is no sign that Brown has begun to lay the groundwork for a serious campaign. He has been out of office since January after losing an expensive and bitter re-election battle against Massachusetts Democrat Elizabeth Warren last fall. But those close to him suggest that Brown, known at times for being impulsive, would take a serious look at the New Hampshire Senate contest if he is received well in the coming weeks. He said he’s been invited to speak in the state four of the next five weeks. As news of his comments spread Friday, top New Hampshire Republican operatives such as Rich Killion suggested that Brown could be a force. “I think Granite State voters would definitely welsee BROWN page 7

Alum Chris Burch donates $1.3M to Tilton School for artiﬁcial turf ﬁeld
TILTON — J. Christopher Burch, class of 1972, has donated $1.3 million to Tilton School that will be used for the construction of an artificial turn athletic field. The announcement of the single largest gift ever received by the private preparatory school was made by Head of School Peter Saliba at an assembly on Friday. “We’re lucky today to have a visitor to campus, Mr. Chris Burch, class of 1972,” Saliba said upon welcoming Burch to the stage for the announcement. “He’s been a great alumnus to the school. I am pleased to announce that Mr. J. Christopher Burch has given us the largest gift in the history of the school.” A four-year student from Pennsylvania, Burch was active on the soccer, hockey, skiing and tennis teams; as a member of the chess and ping pong clubs, and as a writer for The Tiltonian, the school newspaper. He also served on the Board of Trustees from 1982-1985. “That’s what this school is about. Where you can GANG from page 2 Lohr, 47, and Guolee, 31, are not being called suspects in Clements’ death, but their names surfaced during the investigation, El Paso County sheriff’s spokesman Jeff Kramer said. Both were wanted on warrants unrelated to the Clements investigation. Kramer has said it was possible that one or both of the men were headed to Nevada or Texas. Guolee’s mother, Deborah Eck, told The Denver Post that Guolee called her husband a week and a half ago to ask for a ride to the police station so he could turn himself in for what she believed was a parole violation. But she said they never heard back from him. Police came to her house Wednesday looking for Guolee. “One cop said if he would have turned himself in for violation of probation, he probably wouldn’t be in

go over to that (Head’s) house, and you feel part of a family. And when you get older, you want to feel part of a family,” Burch said during his address to the situation he was now,” Eck told the newspaper. Lohr has been wanted in Las Animas County in southeastern Colorado. He was arrested for violating a protection order in Trinidad on Dec. 1, 2012, after police found that he’d been drinking with friends at a tattoo shop. According to court documents, drinking was a violation of a protective order against him, and he was arrested. Lohr then failed to appear in court in that case Feb. 20, and a warrant was issued for his arrest. Lohr has a shaved head in his booking photo. In addition to the words on his eyebrows, he has a shamrock — a tattoo favored by some 211 Crew members — near his right eye. Lohr has a criminal record going back to 1992. In 1996, after he pleaded guilty to burglarizing a home, court records show he was ordered to have no contact with his estranged wife after she told police he repeat-
the Chapel audience, which included students, faculty, and board members. “I am excited to be part of Tilton School, I’m excited to be part of the community, a group of students that are remarkable. I want you guys to remember this moment.” “I want to let you know this is one of the happiest days of my life,” Burch said in closing. Burch is most well known for his role in the business world. In his 30-plus years as an entrepreneur, he has guided the rise of more than 50 companies and has redefined innovation, essentially cornering the market in the retail and lifestyle brand industries. He is the founder and CEO of Burch Creative Capital, a firm with offices in New York City and Shanghai, China, the co-founder of Tory Burch LLC, and the founder of C. Wonder. This gift follows Saliba’s March announcement that Tilton School had learned it was the recipient of a $500,000 bequest from Arthur Sweatt (class of 1949) which will be put toward campus enhancements and endowment.
edly broke into her home and stole items to pawn. In 2006, Lohr was charged with burglary with a weapon and assault causing serious bodily injury. Court records show those charged were dismissed because of a lack of evidence. Court records show Guolee was arrested in 2001 after a member of the Crips gang told Colorado Springs police he was jumped by Guolee and another gang member because they believed he was a member of a rival gang. The witness told police Guolee and the other gang member punched and kicked him in the face and left him bleeding. In 2007, Guolee was charged with assault and intimidating a witness while in the El Paso County jail after an inmate said he was assaulted by three men, including Guolee, because they thought he was going to testify against a suspect in another case.

Woman said robbed of purse while walking along Shaker Road in Belmont BELMONT — Police are actively investigating the robbery of a woman who told police yesterday that two men stole her purse while she was walking along Shaker Road near Elk Farm. The woman told police a car pulled along side of her and one man got out to ask to ask directions. While they were talking he stole her purse. She said she was unharmed and neither man showed a weapon. She described the car as a black two-door compact. She said the man who stole the purse was about 6-feet tall and weighed about 200 pounds. She said he had a spider tattoo on his
neck and wore a black hooded sweatshirt with a red bandanna. She said the driver was slim built and that both men appeared to be in their early 20s. This is the second robbery in two weeks in Belmont. About 10 days ago, a taxi driver reported he was robbed on Route 107 by his two male passengers at knife and gun point. The men were described by the driver as a tall thin black male and a shorter heavier white male. He was unharmed. Anyone with any information about these crimes robberies is asked to call police at 267-8350.
HARRIS from page 2 exactly what you’d want in anybody who is administering the law.” Harris was present and had addressed the crowd before the president spoke. The “best-looking” comment instantly lit up news blogs and websites, with some highlighting it as an example of the hurdles working women still face. Carney and Harris’ spokesman, Gil Duran, both noted that Obama and Harris are longtime friends. “He called her to apologize for the distraction created by his comments,” Carney told reporters Friday. “He did not want in any way to diminish the attorney general’s professional accomplishments and her capabilities.”
He noted that Obama also commented on Harris’ smarts. Carney went on to say that Obama “fully recognizes the challenge women continue to face in the workplace and that they should not be judged based on appearance.” In an emailed statement, Duran noted the longstanding ties between Obama and Harris. “They had a great conversation yesterday, and she strongly supports him,” he said. Duran later said he would not comment beyond the statement. He declined to say whether Harris had accepted the president’s apology or whether she was offended by his comment.

Bloody Chicago President Obama’s hometown of Chicago still goes by the old nickname “Windy City.” But after three miserable decades of strict gun control and permanent Democratic rule, Chicago has cemented its reputation as America’s Bloody City. No amount of statistical whitewashing can cover up the stains of the left’s ideological failures there. But as Obama continues to wage war on law-abiding gun owners, his home team is trying its hardest to spread smiley-face lies upon damned lies to downplay Chicago homicide statistics. On Monday, April Fools’ Day, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy held a press conference to tout a “dramatic” drop in the city’s homicide rate. The headlines read: “March homicides drop dramatically in Chicago” (USA Today); “Murders fall 42 percent in America’s deadliest city: Chicago” (NBC News); and “March homicides drop 69 percent in Chicago” (Las Vegas Sun).” Emanuel trumpeted the drop as a “good sign.” He hyped statistics to the Associated Press showing that first-quarter 2013 murders in Chicago tied the same time period in 2009. Murders decreased 69 percent compared to the same month last year; first-quarter homicides fell by 42 percent compared to the same time frame last year. Emanuel insisted: “We are clearly having an impact on the homicides.” But it’s all in how you slice, dice and spin it, of course. Let’s face it. Gun-grabbers in Democratic-dominated cities have an institutional incentive to fudge the numbers. In New York City, which rivals Chicago when it comes to out-of-control gun-control regulations, a New York Police Department whistleblower recently exposed systemic manipulation of crime data. As anti-Second Amendment crusader Michael Bloomberg made the rounds last spring touting the Big Apple as “the safest big city in America,” an internal NYPD report confirmed that more than a dozen crime reports had been manipulated — including felonies downgraded and incident reports deep-sixed — to lower the crime rate. As punishment for exposing the tampering and corruption, the whistle-blowing officer, Adrian Schoolcraft, who secretly taped the manipulation, was suspended and forced into a psych ward. He’s still fighting for justice and has never received an apology. So, call me crazy, but I wouldn’t put it past Team Obama’s Chicago theater directors to goose their
numbers to improve the optics for Dear Leader. Speaking of the lobbyist in chief, he parachuted into Colorado this week and surrounded himself with Denver police officer human props during a gun-control campaign event. The rank-and-filers were none too happy with being exploited for political purposes. “To protect and serve” is supposed to be a public safety imperative, not a campaign imperative. But back to the Bloody City. In 2012, Chicago racked up the nation’s deadliest death toll, with 506 of its residents murdered. The murder rate has simply returned to its bloody business as usual over the past five years. Here’s the firstquarter death toll breakdown: 2013: 70; 2012: 120; 2011: 75; 2010: 75; 2009: 70. The Second City Cop crime blog adds that Emanuel’s claim regarding the homicide rate dropping to levels not seen since the 1950s “is based solely on the population decrease in the city of Chicago. This is an amazing abuse of numbers, but as Mark Twain said, ‘There are lies, damned lies and statistics.’ Welcome to ‘statistics.’” Local Chicago CBS 2 reporter Jay Levine didn’t buy the whitewashing bunk, either. He challenged City Hall with a piece entitled: “City Touts Lower Homicide Stats, But Context Reveals Return To Normal.” Put simply, “2013’s 70 first-quarter homicides was a major improvement over 2012’s 120 — but not over 2011 or 2010 or 2009.” While Emanuel sang “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” for the press, the Bloody City was still reeling after a 6-month-old baby was shot and killed in gang crossfire. On Easter weekend, a mob of violent teens terrorized shoppers in the Magnificent Mile district. Similar outbreaks of racially driven attacks have escalated in Chicago under the reign of Daley-Emanuel-Obama. By some police estimates, gang violence accounts for up to 80 percent of the city’s homicides. Plagued by juvenile delinquency, organized crime, ruinous government dependency, corruption and out-of-control spending, these liberal-dominated hellholes have proved impervious to progressive “social justice” engineering. It’s the insane demagogues blaming guns who need their heads examined. (Syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin is the daughter of Filipino Immigrants.

LETTERS Trouble is, Listens’ organizers have already decided the outcome To the editor, After I picked myself up off the floor, I re-read Bruce Mallory’s “N.H Listens’ Role is Complimentary ....” letter to the editor (March 29 edition of The Laconia Daily Sun) once more to make sure I didn’t miss something. Dr. Mallory wrote, “We weren’t sure exactly what that was, so we Googled it.” Rest assured that prior to tapping out the letters on his keyboard, he had both a profound and a deep understanding of the word “that” in the quote above. “That” refers to the Delphi Technique. Dr. Mallory had quite a few half truths in his letter, and you know the old saying don’t you? A half truth is a whole lie. How can I make such a bold statement? It’s easy. I’ve had several conversations with Dr. Mallory, both in person, on the phone and via e-mail. In a recent email conversation, Dr. Mallory clearly talked about the Delphi Technique. You can read his exact words here: http://go.askthebuilder. com/mallorydelphi. One face-to-face conversation about the Delphi Technique happened in the presence of two of his minions and two of my friends. We were all sitting in the warm sun gathered around an outdoor table at the Burrito Me restaurant in downtown Laconia. In case Dr. Mallory can’t remember that either, the date was August 23, 2012. I still have Dr. Mallory’s e-mail invitation to that meeting if you’d like to see it. Yes, he invited me to discuss NH Listens and how it’s perceived in the community. While sipping iced tea, I clearly told Dr. Mallory that NH Listens employs the Delphi Technique. He denied it. Speaking of facts, here are a few more. The Delphi Technique is a highly unethical method of running a meeting. The organizers of the meeting position the gathering to make the attendees believe they’ll be providing valuable input that will guide an initiative. Highly trained facilitators run the meetings using powerful psychological triggers. Dr. Mallory clearly said in his letter that his NH Listens meetings are facilitated. The meetings that employ the Delphi Technique all have the same or similar structure. The attendees
are first addressed as an entire group with a welcome introduction. Then the attendees are broken up into circles or smaller discussion cells. These cells meet privately for at least 90 minutes. Each cell has it’s own facilitator. The meeting concludes with all attendees gathering together once more where a brief summary of points from each cell is presented to the entire group. These summary points are then combined into a consensus document that the organizers publish. The trouble is the organizers have already decided on the outcome of the meeting’s consensus document. They steer the discussion by providing discussion points that are highly biased, and the facilitators cleverly extract what they want from the attendees as they chat in the small discussion cells. What’s more, there are almost always plants in each discussion circle that are loyal to the initiative’s cause and/or are paid to be part of the discussion. Their programmed input in the small discussion cells is almost always favored by the facilitator and the other plants. This input always makes it into each cell’s summary points. As they say, the proof’s in the pudding. Just a little over two weeks ago I attended one of the “facilitated small group discussions” as Dr. Mallory calls them in his letter to you. It was held at the Plymouth Senior Center. The topic was the Granite State Future. I attended the listening session as a member of the media to cast a harsh spotlight on this unethical meeting format. One of Dr. Mallory’s UNH’s peers, Molly Donovan — the head facilitator that night — tried to stop me from video taping the event, but I politely informed her that I have crystal clear First Amendment rights in that setting to tape, record, quote and photograph the attendees and event.

LETTERS So what? The subject of my letter was energy production, not war To the editor, The other day Henry Osmer questioned my ability to read but I must assure him that I can indeed, although after reading more of his thinking I might wish I couldn’t. Henry keeps trying to revise history, suggesting to readers that the Iraq was strictly a Bush/Republican deal. He even suggested I look up the vote, so I did. In the Senate the vote to give the president the authority to use force was 77 yea to 23 nay and the yeas included 48 Republicans and 23 Democrats. In the House it was 297 yea and 133 nay, which included 82 Democrats voting yea with the 215 Republicans. Liberals don’t have to like it but the votes were bipartisan, so they can stop trying to change the facts of history any time now. On another subject, Henry responded to a statement in one of my letters saying solar panels and wind turbines are subsidized by the government. His response was that the Wars in Iraq an Afghanistan cost much
more then these subsidies. While true, so what? The subject of my letter was energy production not wars. Liberals like Henry, when unable to respond to a factual statement always either try to change the subject (this example), or try to attack the author of the statement. While Henry offered to engage me in civil debate on issues he has shown he is incapable of doing so. A few days ago he demanded we all turn off Fox News and tune into a MSNBC program. No thanks Henry, though I realize MSNBC and Saturday Night Live are probably where you get all your information. I prefer a balanced network. To show the absurdity of relying on MSNBC, the other day Chris Mathews gave the definition of racism as: One race, the white race, thinking it has the right to rule all the other races. For readers information that IS NOT the definition of racism. Look it up if you doubt me. Steve Earle Hill
Ms. Buker has right to publish misinformation but it will be challenged To the editor, In her recent letter to the Sun, Thea Aloise wrote: “Bev Buker is my next door neighbor . . . she is a very caring and compassionate person as I know her.” Ms. Aloise also stated that I “owed an apology” to Ms. Buker for my criticism of her false statements about immigrants, particularly the refugees in our area. If I in any way personally offended Ms. Buker, I do apologize for that but I believe I referred not to her personally but to her hateful and bitter diatribes and her “apparent” lack of compassion which unfortunately DOES appear in her letters. That was not a personal attack on Ms. Buker but rather a statement of truth based on simple observation of the things she has published in this paper over the years on a number of matters. I do not know Ms. Buker but Ms. Aloise is probably right: Ms. Buker is quite likely a very nice and compassionate lady on a personal level. I find that many people with whom I disagree are likable people. But ,that does not change the fact that Ms. Buker frequently DOES write vitriolic and angry pieces to this paper. Ms. Buker certainly has the right to
her opinions on immigration or anything else. But, unfortunately, she doesn’t just express an opinion about immigration. She also disseminates misinformation or disinformation about immigration and other issues. Misinformation is based on a simple misunderstanding of the truth and is, of course, pardonable. Disinformation, on the other hand, is disseminating false information on purpose. I am quite willing to give Ms. Buker the benefit of the doubt and assume she simply does not know what she is talking about when it comes to immigration or the refugees living in the Lakes Region. Ms. Buker has the right to publish this misinformation but she does not have the right to expect that she will go unchallenged and her misinformation will go uncorrected. There are a lot of myths in the community about our refugees and other immigrants and how they get all sorts of “free rides” and they need to be refuted. These legal, hard-working members of our community have a right to have these accusations challenged with the truth. E. Scott Cracraft Gilford
from preceding page you won’t see in the video are unicorns prancing under rainbows. You might find those on the Granite State Futures website. My guess is after watching the video you’ll probably agree that Dr. Mallory is suffering from one of two conditions: He possibly has temporary fatigue amnesia from writing too many grants, or he’s mimicking Jon Lovitz’s famous character on Satur-
day Night Live — Tommy Flanagan, the pathological liar. Whichever it is, I strongly suggest you don’t believe another word from his mouth or fingertips until such time as he makes a formal apology and calls the Durham NH Fire Department to have them on stand by in case his tweed pants catch on fire.

With football ﬁeld under construction, Opechee Park graduation site likely for Laconia High School Class of 2013 LACONIA — High School Principal Jim McCollum said this year’s senior class will likely be graduating at Opechee Park on Saturday June 8 at 10 a.m. Graduation has traditionally taken place on the Laconia High School football field but this year the field is being renovated as part of the Huot Technical Center project and it likely won’t be ready until after graduation. “If some how the field behind the school is ready we can make the change,” said McCollum, adding is is most likely not possible. He told the School Board Tuesday night that members of senior class “have been part of (the discussions)
all along.” McCollum said the goal is to incorporate Lake Opechee as a backdrop for the commencement exercises. Responding to School Board Chair Joe Cormier, McCollum said the school was prepared to set up 1,600 chairs. There was also some discussion about letting guests bring there own chairs. June 5 is senior night when graduating seniors get their achievement awards. June 7 is the graduation night for the Laconia Academy and that graduation typically takes place in the auditorium. — Gail Ober
Belmont police warn of uptick in scams BELMONT — Local police are sounding the alarms about an uptick in phone and mail scams and frauds in the area. According to Lt. Richard Mann, the department has seen an increase in the number of reported lottery frauds. He said the caller or typically calls or mails the potential victim and tells them they are the winners of a widely known lottery. Mann said to be especially wary of of demands to send money in order to claim the prize. He said the fraudster will often tell the victim that the money is needed “up front” so taxes or other processing fees can be paid. He also said it is a violation of federal law to play a foreign lottery via phone or e-mail. Other types of fraud include a
request to reship an Internet purchase. “Do not accept packages you didn’t order,” he said, saying that people should refuse delivery or contact the shipper without opening it. As to credit card purchases, police say make sure the site you are using is secure and that you initiated the contact. He said to never send credit card information to an unsolicited e-mail or on the telephone unless you called them first. He also warned people to reconcile their credit cards and bank statement regularly and to shred all paper accounts. People should also be aware of missed bills because they could indicate a secure account has been compromised. — Gail Ober
BROWN from page 3 come Scott Brown into the race,” Killion said. “In the early stages of political endeavors like this I often look at the opposition’s reaction as a basis of viability,” he continued, citing “a tangible sense of panic” from Democrats. Indeed, Democrats in New Hampshire and Washington have reacted swiftly and strongly. The state party began issuing fundraising emails just minutes after Brown’s comments were published by The Associated Press. A party spokesman said the initial 12 hours of online fundraising were the best in the state party’s history, but declined to release any numbers. “This has been a very lucrative day for the party,” said state Democratic Chairman Ray Buckley. Shaheen’s campaign distributed an urgent message to supporters early Friday: “This is serious: Brown’s campaign spent $40 million in 2012. Most of that went to lie-filled attack ads. He’ll try the same thing against Jeanne,” the campaign wrote. Shaheen, a former New Hampshire governor, faces her first re-election test as a senator next year. Recent polling shows she is popular heading into the next election season, although Republicans suggest the political landscape could change dramatically by the fall of 2014. Should he run, Brown’s path would
certainly not be an easy one. The voters who know him best rejected his re-election just six months ago. And he would have to convince New Hampshire residents that he is one of them, despite having lived most of his life in another state. Brown’s primary residence is in Wrentham, Mass., but he owns a home along New Hampshire’s seacoast. New Hampshire law has a sevenyear residence requirement for candidates for governor and state senate, but no time requirement for U.S. Senate candidates. So long as Brown is a registered New Hampshire voter before the 2014 candidate filing period, he would be eligible to run. Republican operative Jamie Burnett said many New Hampshire voters already feel a special connection to Brown because they volunteered on his 2009 special election campaign. “He almost became their adopted son when he won that race,” Burnett said, adding that he still sees Brown bumper stickers on cars around the state. “But he would have his work cut out for him.” The list of out-of-state politicians who successfully launched New Hampshire political careers is a short one. It includes former three-term Republican Gov. Mel Thompson, who lived in Georgia and Florida before moving to New Hampshire. Former see next page

Towns’ pursuit of Mass. flood money continues Seeking grand bargain deal with GOP, CONCORD — Once again the Legislature has renewed the effort to compel Massachusetts to pay its share of compensation to 18 cities and towns in New Hampshire for land taken for flood control projects 60 years ago while in the meantime reimbursing the municipalities for a share of the foregone funding they are owed. In 1953, the state took possession of 18,473 acres and acquired easements on some 40,000 acres from 18 cities and towns along the Merrimack and Connecticut rivers where high water can be held to mitigate flooding downstream. The Merrimack River Valley Flood Control Compact and Connecticut River Valley Flood Control Compact, which were approved by Congress, stipulated that Massachusetts would contribute 70 percent and New Hampshire 30percent to reimbursing the municipalities annually for the foregone property tax revenue on the sequestered land. Three of the 18 municipalities — Franklin, Webster and Salisbury are in Senate District 7 represented by Andrew Hosmer (D-Laconia) while four — Bristol, New Hampton, Sanbornton, and Hill — are in Senate District 2 represented by Jeanie Forrester (R-Meredith). In July, 2006, not long after the “Mother’s Day Flood,” then Governor John Lynch wrote to his counterpart on Beacon Hill, former governor Mitt Romney, threatening legal action if Massachusetts did not pay the $3.2 million he claimed its owed the communities. He charged that Massachusetts made no payment in 1994, only partial payments from 1995 to 2002 and has paid nothing at all none at all since 2003. Since then the arrearages have mounted to $4.5 million according to the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration (DRA).
Payments are based on the current tax value of the foregone acreage. Until 2011 New Hampshire paid the municipalities the money owed them by Massachusetts in anticipation of ultimately being reimbursed. But, in 2011 the state paid only its 30 percent share and in 2012 made no payment at all. This year two bills have been introduced to address the issue. House Bill 581, sponsored by Representative Mario Ratzki (D-Andover) simply urges the Attorney General expedite the pursuit and recovery of monies owed to the state by Massacusetts. The other, Senate Bill 150, sponsored by Senator Andy Sanborn (R-Bedford) , would appropriate $800,000 in each year of the upcoming biennium to reimburse cities and towns for arrearages accrued in fiscal years 2011 and 2012. In Senate District 7 for these two years Franklin, which lost 1,284 acres, is owed $37,741, Salisbury, which lost 2,491 acres, $85,567 and Webster, which lost 1,091 acres, $27,463. In Senate District 2, Bristol, which lost 193 acres, is owed $11,406, Hill, which lost 820 acres, $40,063, New Hampton, which lost 552 acres, $23,660 and Sanbornton, which lost 782 acres, $38,967. Forrester, who serves on the Senate Finance Committee, said that the Senate has tabled SB-150 in anticipation of seeking to include an appropriation for the municipalities in the Senate version of the 2013-2014 state budget. She said that the two states “are pointing fingers at each other” and expected that the impasse would only be resolved after protracted negotiation or litigation. “I am going to fight to get the funds for the communities I represent,” Hosmer, a member of the Senate Ways and Means Committee, said yesterday, cautioning that there are many significant demands on relatively scarce funds.
FIREFIGHTERS from page one However, the majority of councilors expressed concern that once the grant expired, there was no assurance the city would have the means to retain the additional personnel. Deputy Chief Deb Pendergast, who prepared the grant application, said it was submitted with the expectation that a plan to maintain the increased staffing would be developed. Myers suggested that a reserve account could be established and the benefits package adjusted, noting that managing resources to keep the positions would be a priority. Meanwhile, last month Municipal Resources Inc. of Meredith, which the city council commissioned to review coverage, overtime and scheduling at the Fire Department, issued its report, featuring the recommendation to hire four firefighters in 2014 and two in each of the next two years. MRI suggested the council reapply for the SAFER grant. MRI offered three options for
deploying the additional personnel, which which would, the consultants predicted spare between 47 percent and 92 percent of the increased cost by trimming overtime. The report claims the service would be improved by enabling the department to provide two fire companies and two medical units during each shift and eliminating the need for overtime to offset the first absence on each shift. Apart from the issue of overtime, MRI concluded that given the risks and experience of fire in the city the department should be expanded to support two fire companies of three apiece and two medical units of apiece, representing a shift of 10. “This pattern of incremental resource increases should continue through the remainder of the decade,” the report continues. On hearing the presentation by MRI, Councilor Bob Hamel (Ward 5 ) said that that had he known what the report contained “I would probably have voted to accept the grant.” Clearly he is not alone.

Obama proposes cuts to Social Security WASHINGTON (AP) — Seeking an elusive middle ground, President Barack Obama is proposing a 2014 budget that embraces tax increases abhorred by Republicans as well as reductions, loathed by liberals, in the growth of Social Security and other benefit programs. The plan, if ever enacted, could touch almost all Americans. The rich would see tax increases, the poor and the elderly would get smaller annual increases in their benefits, and middle income taxpayers would slip into higher tax brackets despite Obama’s repeated vows not to add to the tax burden of the middle class. His proposed changes, once phased in, would mean a cut in Social Security benefits of nearly $1,000 a year for an average 85-year-old, smaller cuts for younger retirees. Obama proposed much the same without success to House Speaker John Boehner in December. The response Friday was dismissive from Republicans and hostile from liberals, labor and advocates for the elderly. But the proposal aims to tackle worrisome deficits that are adding to the national debt and placing a longterm burden on the nation, prompting praise from independent deficit hawks. Obama’s budget also proposes new spending for public works projects, pre-school education and for job and benefit assistance for veterans. “It’s not the president’s ideal approach to our budget challenges, but it is a serious compromise proposition that demonstrates that he wants to get things done,” said White House press secretary Jay Carney. The budget, which Obama will release Wednesday to cover the budget year beginning Oct. 1, proposes spending cuts and revenue increases that would result in $1.8 trillion in deficit reductions over 10 years. That figure would replace $1.2 trillion in automatic spending cuts that are poised to take effect over the next 10 years if Congress and the president don’t come up with an alternative, thus delivering a net increase in deficit reduction of $600 billion. Counting reductions and higher taxes that Congress and Obama have approved since 2011, the 2014 budget would contribute to $4.3 trillion in total deficit reduction by 2023. The budget wouldn’t affect the $85 billion in cuts that kicked in last month for this budget year. A key feature of Obama’s plan is a revised inflation adjustment called “chained CPI.” This new formula would effectively curb annual increases in a broad swath of government programs from preceding page Republican Sen. Gordon Humphrey represented New Hampshire for two terms in the U.S. Senate despite being raised in Connecticut, living out-ofstate as an airline pilot until shortly before his election. Horn said other New Hampshire Republicans already considering the Senate contest would not step aside for Brown. Those include former Congressman and current state Sen. Jeb Bradley, former Congressman Frank Guinta
but would have its biggest impact on Social Security. By encompassing Obama’s offer to Boehner, R-Ohio, the plan would also include reductions in Medicare spending, much of it by targeting payments to health care providers and drug companies. The Medicare proposal also would require wealthier recipients to pay higher premiums or co-pays. Obama’s budget proposal also calls for additional tax revenue, primarily by placing a 28 percent cap on deductions and other tax exclusions. That plan would affect wealthy taxpayers as would a new administration proposal to place limits on tax-preferred retirement accounts for millionaires and billionaires. Obama made the same offer to Boehner in December when he and the speaker were negotiating ways of avoiding a steep, so-called fiscal cliff of combined across-the-board spending cuts and sweeping tax increases caused by the expiration of Bush-era tax rates. Boehner rejected that plan and ultimately Congress approved tax increases that were half of what Obama had sought. “If you look at where the president’s final offer and Boehner were ... they were extremely close to each other,” said Maya MacGuineas, president of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget. “We do think that it’s a very good sign that the president has included real entitlement reforms in the budget.” Boehner, in a statement Friday, said House Republicans made clear to Obama last month that he should not make savings in entitlement programs that both sides agree on, contingent on more tax increases. “If the president believes these modest entitlement savings are needed to help shore up these programs, there’s no reason they should be held hostage for more tax hikes,” Boehner said. “That’s no way to lead and move the country forward.” The inflation adjustment would reduce federal spending on government programs over 10 years by about $130 billion, according to White House estimates. Because it also affects how tax brackets are adjusted, it would also generate about $100 billion in higher taxes and hit even middle income taxpayers. Once the change is fully phased in, Social Security benefits for a typical middle-income 65-year-old would be about $136 less a year, according to an analysis of Social Security data. At age 75, annual benefits under the new index would be $560 less. At 85, the cut would be $984 a year.
and former U.S. Sen. John E. Sununu. At least one New Hampshire Republican operative isn’t taking Brown seriously. A veteran of state and national politics, Michael Dennehy said the remarks “make for fun talk around the water cooler, but Brown for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire is not realistic.” “His comments are disrespectful to the people of New Hampshire who take their politics and their officials very seriously,” Dennehy said.
Gilford police say man’s resisting arrest moves included 4-letter words, head banging & head butting
GILFORD — A local man is free on personal recognizance bail after trying to run from away from police after hitting a guide wire for a commercial sign with his vehicle on Cherry Valley Road Monday night. Police said Cameron Lobo, 24, of 344 Old Lake Shore Road #13 tried to run from police but fell and rolled down the hill toward the Gunstock Inn. He is charged with one count of simple assault, one count of resisting arrest and a number of motor vehicle violations, including driving while intoxicated. After police caught him, Lobo is said the have begun yelling obscenities and wouldn’t comply with the officer. During the struggle, the officer deployed his Taser and Lobo was subdued until a
second officer could get there. While being transported to the Gilford Police Department, Lobo allegedly began hitting his head on the separation barrier while cuffed in the back seat. When he wouldn’t calm down the transporting officer sprayed him with pepper spray. After being treated on the side of the road by Gilford Fire and Rescue, he was taken to LRGH for evaluation. While there he alleged head-butted one of the police officers in the chest and spit on a nurse who was helping police put him into four-point restraints. He was treated and transported to the Belknap County Jail. The next day he was released on $2,500 personal recognizance bail.

Chris Christie and the school’s board of governors. Barchi, who took office in September 2012, said he first saw the video only this week, but was aware it existed in late November when Pernetti gave him a summary of what was on it at the time. “This was a failure of process. I regret that I did not ask to see this video when Tim first told me of its existence,” Barchi said. “I want to apologize to the entire Rutgers community for the negative impact that this situation has had on Rutgers. “I also apologize to the LGBT community and all of us who share their values for the homophobic slurs shown on that video. I personally know how hurtful that language can be.” Based on the information he received from Pernetti, Barchi said he “agreed with and supported his recommendation to suspend, rather than fire, coach Rice at that time. It was not until Tuesday evening of this week, when I watched the video, that I had the opportunity to witness personally
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, April 6, 2013 — Page 9
for the first time what Tim had seen last fall. “I was deeply disturbed by the behavior that the video revealed, which was much more abusive and pervasive than I had understood it to be. As Tim acknowledged on Wednesday, his decision to rehabilitate, rather than fire, coach Rice was wrong.” Barchi said the school hopes to appoint an interim athletic director in a few days but he admitted he had no idea whether that person would come from inside or outside the university. The 42-year-old Pernetti is a Rutgers graduate who played tight end for the Scarlet Knights from 1989-93. Pernetti said in his resignation letter to Barchi that “my first instincts when I saw the videotape of Coach Rice’s behavior was to fire him immediately. However, Rutgers decided to follow a process involving university lawyers, human resources professionals, and outside counsel.” “Following review of the independent investigative report, the consensus was that university policy would not justify dismissal. I have admitted my role in, and regret for, that decision, and wish that I had the opportunity to go back and override it for the sake of everyone involved,” it said.

QUEBEC from page 2 The Racines De Vie Montessori daycare is located in two homes, and Sergeant Jean-Paul LeMay said police found a body in each one.

Invasive beetle identified in N.H. CONCORD (AP) — An invasive beetle that has beleaguered 18 other states including Massachusetts and Connecticut has made its way to New Hampshire. The emerald ash borer, originally from China, has killed millions of ash trees nationwide since being discovered in Michigan in 2002. It’s often spread by people transporting firewood, and much of the outreach nationally has focused on a “Don’t Move Firewood” campaign. Officials from the New Hampshire Department of Resources and Economic Development and the Department of Agriculture, Markets and Food said Friday that a suspect tree was spotted in Concord on March 28, and federal authorities later confirmed that insect specimens from the tree were the invasive beetle. Agriculture Commissioner Lorraine Merrill said the discovery wasn’t unexpected, and that the state is beginning its response, which starts with a survey to determine the extent
of the beetle’s presence. “This is something we’ve been prepared for. (The ash borer) is in neighboring states and we knew it was somewhat inevitable that it would make its way up here,” Merrill said. The next likely step is quarantine to prevent the removal of ash logs and firewood from any affected areas in the hopes of slowing the pest’s spread, Merrill said. If unchecked, the beetle can devastate ash tree populations, damaging forests. The metallic green insect’s larvae feed just below the bark and adults go after the leaves. Ash trees where the pest is found typically die within two to five years. Ash is a commonly used landscape tree and makes up about six percent of New Hampshire’s northern hardwood forests. It has a wide variety of uses from flooring and furniture to hockey sticks and baseball bats. It’s also preferred for firewood according to Jason Stock with the New Hampshire Timberland Association.

Streak of filling Fenway Park for 793 consecutive games likely to come to an end on Wednesday BOSTON (AP) — Boston Red Sox president Larry Lucchino stood in an empty Fenway Park to discuss the ballpark improvements for the upcoming season. At the home opener on Monday, all those seats will be filled. On Wednesday, maybe not. The Red Sox are preparing for the end of the sellout streak that has covered a record 793 regularseason games dating back to May 15, 2003. And, though Monday’s home opener against Baltimore will bring that total to 794, “what happens after that is unclear,” Lucchino told reporters on Friday at the annual pre-opener tour of ballpark improvements. “The streak will probably end in April, the first or second series. That’s fine,” Lucchino said. “It’s extraordinary. I don’t think anybody will come close to that for some time. We’re proud of it, but we move on. “The fact is that the fans supported the team in such numbers with such consistency. This year it will be easier. People will be able to get tickets because it is not all sold-out in advance.” The Red Sox play the Orioles again on Wednesday and Thursday night and, as the announcers say, “Good seats are still available.” Boston could play a record 17 home games in April, when the weather is bad and kids are in school and tickets are most difficult to sell. Although Fenway Park has long been one of baseball’s jewels, it wasn’t until the Yawkey era ended and the ownership group led by John Henry bought the team that baseball’s oldest ballpark truly became a star. The new owners spent $285 million to renovate Fenway, with new video boards and seats above the Green Monster alongside less visible additions like family bathrooms and a waterproof seating bowl. Tours amble through the ballpark in the offseason and before games, and fans have filled it to watch the Red Sox play in unprecedented numbers. Thanks to World Series championships in 2004 and 2007 — and an expanded capacity — the team has drawn over 3 million fans in each of the past four seasons. “I feel like we’re filled with understanding that a streak of nearly 10 years meets a natural end,” Red Sox spokesman Charles Steinberg said. “The point was never to have a streak. The point was: A park this popular in a region with fans this passionate should be able to sell all of its seats. That’s why when the streak ends, the philosophy doesn’t change.” But the team’s strategy to fill the park has had

to change after the ballclub’s collapse in September of 2011 and a last-place finish last season. Major League Baseball also stuck the Red Sox with too many April games. Either way, the Red Sox knew they had some work to do to make it up to fans. The team added new televisions around the grandstands, expanded the information boards along the upper deck and replaced the protective screen behind home plate with a thinner mesh that makes it easier for fans to see through it. The season ticketholders’ club room now has its own kitchen, new bathrooms and improved acoustics and lighting. New menu items have been added throughout the ballpark, and during April, fans can buy two hot dogs for the price of one or half-price hot chocolate. Players will see an improvement, too, with thicker pads of high-impact foam in right and center field. And ticket prices were frozen for the third time in five years. Red Sox chief operating officer Sam Kennedy said 87 percent of season ticket-holders renewed this offseason, down from 95 percent the year before. Although the team has sold 2.2 million tickets before opening day, the plummeting prices on the resale market may have scared off season ticket-holders who needed to unload games they couldn’t use. The sellout streak of 793 regular-season games — 819, including playoffs — shattered the record of 455 set by the Cleveland Indians when they opened Jacobs Field and also surpassed the all-sports record set by the NBA’s Portland Trail Blazers from 1977-95. But there has been some doubt about the integrity of the sellouts, with The Boston Globe last year sending reporters to ticket windows into the seventh inning to buy seats for supposedly sold-out games. (The team says it uses the definition of a sellout that is common in the industry, one that includes giveaways and standing room sales that bring the attendance above the seating capacity.) The end of the streak will be a good thing for many fans, especially those who had been unable to land tickets in the past. Some games have as many as 5,000 seats still available; Lucchino said groups of up to 200 can still buy tickets to many games. “Throughout the streak, there was an assumption that you couldn’t get tickets,” Steinberg said. “We want to make sure that those who want to go to a game know that they can.

Napoli leads Red Sox to 6-4 win over Blue Jays TORONTO (AP) — Mike Napoli hit a two-run homer and drove in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning, and the Boston Red Sox beat the Blue Jays 6-4 on Friday night in manager John Farrell’s return to Toronto. Will Middlebrooks added a solo shot for Boston and Junichi Tazawa (1-0) got the win despite allowing a tying homer to Jose Reyes in the seventh. Andrew Bailey pitched the eighth and Joel Hanrahan finished for his second save. A crowd of 45,328 let Farrell have it all night. The former Toronto manager left the Blue Jays last fall to replace Bobby Valentine in Boston. Reyes went 4 for 5 with two RBIs and Josh Johnson gave up nine hits over six innings in his Toronto debut. Farrell was jeered during batting practice and booed when he came to home plate to exchange lineup cards, doffing his cap on his way back to the bench. The ill will continued throughout, with Farrell booed when he came out to check on injured shortstop Jose Iglesias, and again when he made a pitching change in the sixth. Pinch-hitter Jonny Gomes drew a one-out walk

from Esmil Rogers (0-1) in the eighth and went to third on Dustin Pedroia’s double. Napoli followed with a grounder to third that was gloved by Maicer Izturis, who fell down on the play and couldn’t recover quickly enough to throw home. The Blue Jays put runners at second and third with one out in the bottom half, but Bailey got Adam Lind and Izturis to fly out. Middlebrooks gave the Red Sox some insurance with a line-drive homer to left off Jeremy Jeffress in the ninth. Toronto’s Mark DeRosa hit a solo homer in the fifth, his first in three years, a drive that bounced off the top of the center-field wall and went out. Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista was held out of the lineup with a sore right ankle and replaced by Rajai Davis. The two-time major league home run leader hurt his ankle stepping on first base while beating out a double play in the eighth inning of Thursday’s 10-8 win over Cleveland. Boston opened the scoring in the second when Shane Victorino scored on Jacoby Ellsbury’s basesloaded single, but Toronto tied it in the bottom half on DeRosa’s sacrifice fly.

As of April 1, 2013 there were 936 residential homes on the market in the twelve communities covered by this report. The average asking price was $513,337 and the median price point was $249,900. Our inventory is down a bit from last April when there were 994 homes available which is great news, but the average price and median price point is also a bit lower as well. Our current inventory represents just a little over a 12 month supply of homes on the market. Not too bad... A recent article on the Fox Business News website by Brendon DeSimone cautioned readers not to be fooled by three real estate myths. Hey, what do you know, Real Estate Mythology! The first myth was that spring is the best time to sell a home. It has long been the conventional wisdom that spring was the time when buyers with families are out looking so they can find a new home to be into by the time the new school year started. No one wants the kiddos traumatized by starting mid-year at a new school. We’ve got video games for that! In the Lakes Region spring has always been a big selling period. Buyers finally have been able to dig themselves out from under the snow banks and are excited that they can actually see
the properties they might want to buy. But the article says that the best time to sell is actually the holiday season and right after. I can certainly agree that the buyers out looking for property on the second day of Christmas or when the weather is a balmy twenty four degrees are definitely serious! And, many buyers feel that a new year brings bright, new possibilities in home ownership leading them to embark on the search for a castle to call their own. The following chart (see next page) shows how many homes were sold each month in the twelve towns in this report. Our biggest sales months come during the summer and the fall. But homes sell all year round. I really think the best time to sell your home is when you have it ready to sell. Make sure it is in the best possible condition with all repairs taken care of, a fresh coat of paint where necessary, and above all make sure it is clean, clean, clean. And, I can also guarantee that no one is going to buy your home unless it is on the market. The second myth is for buyers and that is always to start with your lowest offer on a property.

AN AFFORDABLE ALTERNATIVE Cabinet refacing starts at only
from preceding page truth is you don’t necessarily want to start with your highest and best, but you almost certainly won’t get anywhere with a low ball offer on a well priced home. You will most likely anger the seller to the point where you won’t get as good a deal as if you had come in with a more appropriately thought out offer. Now, it is true that some homes are overpriced and probably will sell well off the asking price, but those sellers are generally not very receptive to low ball offers. You may be better off pursuing a more reasonably priced home. That’s why you should have the advice of a REALTOR® to help you determine property values and seller motivation before you make an offer. Most of the time, low ball offers will get you nowhere. The third myth is that a cash offer will trump all others given the risk involved in getting financed today. Buyers always tend to believe that a cash offer is something that seller’s can’t resist. The article asks you to consider that you received two offers on your home that is listed at $399,000. One was cash for $375,000 and the other was at full price but financed with 25 percent down, a pre-approval letter, and quick contingency periods. The article recommends that the agent for the buyer with financing provide the seller with everything possible to prove that his client can meet the terms of the financing contingency and make the case that his deal is better. He might even arrange that the seller or seller’s agent talk with the buyer’s lender. It also helps a lot if the lender is someone local and that has a reputation of being able to provide superior

customer service and be able to work through the glitches that always seem to pop up. Other things to consider in the deal would be how much of a deposit that the cash buyer is putting down, the condition of the property, and how well it will fair in a home inspection. Is the cash buyer likely going to try to negotiate more on defects found in the home inspection? Is the value of the home questionable at all and does the cash offer request an appraisal to be done? There’s a lot to consider in either offer! Getting financing on any home today can be a little daunting to say the least. But, any deal that can eliminate financing altogether certainly carries a lot of weight by eliminating the appraisal and underwriting process. And that’s another reason why you need a REALTOR® to help you evaluate and give you assistance in the decision making process. Maybe next week we’ll get into legends...

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, April 6, 2013— Page 19
Dear Annie: I’ve always had a problem with my mother and sister. When I was a child, I often stayed with my grandfather. I loved this man fiercely. He died recently, and the last 10 years of his life were terrible. My mother and aunts rescinded his DNR and disregarded his wishes about life support, forcing him to remain in a partially vegetative state for years. My sister, “Alice,” inserted herself into this drama at every opportunity. She had to be removed from his bedside when she became hysterical and lashed out at the nurses. Alice submitted the death notice to the local paper without checking with anyone. She left out many family members, who are furious and are taking it out on me. My aunt (the executor of the will) has made it clear that I won’t get the small tokens my grandfather left me unless I pick sides. I doubt Alice’s grief is genuine. When I moved away, my aunts paid her to stay with Grandpa, and she told me she was only doing it for the money. My mother and aunts won’t set a date for a memorial because they’re all so busy trying to hurt each other. Every family function becomes a three-ring circus. How can I grieve for a grandparent who meant the world to me when I’m busy refereeing? -- Brokenhearted Dear Brokenhearted: Our condolences on the loss of your grandfather. Please don’t focus on how genuine your sister’s grief is. If she is behaving for the sake of drama, so be it. And the executor of an estate does not have the legal right to withhold a bequest. You can talk to your grandfather’s lawyer about that. We know how upsetting this is for you, but you would be better served by staying out of the family fights with as much diplomatic neutrality and distance as you can muster. Dear Annie: I hope you will print my “public service” letter for all contractors and building managers: Please place the toilet paper holder in the restrooms high
enough that one does not have to bend over to get the toilet paper out. This is particularly important in handicapped stalls where the paper dispenser tends to be below the handrail. Someone with a back problem will have a great deal of difficulty reaching down to six inches from the floor to get the paper. Thank you. -- An Iowa Back Patient Dear Iowa: Ideally, the toilet paper holder should be placed so that the paper (not necessarily the holder) is at elbow height when one is seated. Dear Annie: You print lots of letters from grandparents who say their kids keep them isolated from their grandchildren. Here’s my perspective: In our extended family, we have one grandparent who is an active alcoholic and hoarder (so we can’t visit), two who smoke multiple packs a day (so we limit our time), two who think the best entertainment is mocking us (so we limit our children’s exposure) and one who believes the Earth revolves around her. When we had our first child, all six of these grandparents descended on our house at once, stayed for many hours, offered no assistance whatsoever, expected to be waited on hand and foot, and mocked our parenting decisions. These parents ignore whatever boundaries we set. They aren’t abusive, and there are no insurmountable differences. But they don’t respect that my spouse and I work long hours and value the limited time we have together. We don’t want to be manipulated, ignored or berated. If any one of these parents treated us respectfully, we would gladly open our home to them more often. They say how selfish my generation is, but frankly, we have great-grandparents with whom we have wonderful relationships because they show respect and understanding. We go out of our way to make sure they spend time with their great-grandchildren. -Fed Up with Grandparents

opinions. Not you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Be wary of the one who comes on strong in the beginning. This may actually be a sign of commitment phobia. It’s complicated, but you can avoid the complication by vowing only to form healthy, natural-feeling relationships. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You tap into the secret desires of others. You know they want excitement and challenge, and you provide this, perhaps unconsciously but quite thoroughly nonetheless. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You learn a lot about a person by observing his or her daily routine. Your routine now can be shuffled ever so slightly to fit nicely with the patterns of another. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 6). You are ambitious, but you don’t want for power and money. You’re more interested in matters of social change, creativity and peace. You have high ideals, but the results you see in April and May let you know that they are also attainable. Family developments in June brighten your scene. A special connection rules the summer. Libra and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 5, 27, 44 and 39.
by Chad Carpenter
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Having a lot of money means you can help people. Having very little money means less stuff to manage and be stressed about. Both states have their merits, so enjoy wherever you are. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). As you dream about a trip you want to take, the mental traveling you’ll do is almost as wonderful as the real thing -- and without any of the cost or risk. Eventually, you’ll get where you want to go. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When your body needs food, so does your mind. Timely and healthful eating will be necessary for you to turn out an optimal performance and meet the demands of the day. CANCER (June 22-July 22). The thing about mediocrity is that it’s relative. That’s why you can never tell whether another person is settling for less. People have their own ideas about the parameters of more and less, and you won’t judge that. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Luckily, change doesn’t happen instantly. If it did, existence would be chaotic and meaningless. The change you’re making is a slow process, and it’s going well. You’ll see in a few weeks! VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may suddenly realize you don’t need something (or someone) you thought was absolutely crucial to your scene. Replacing “need” with “want” (or “don’t want,” for that matter) is liberating. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The kitchen cabinets are telling a story about what you like, how organized you are and what you haven’t been able to let go of. Do you dare take these cabinets on as a project and change the story? SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Getting into a relationship is like getting into a car deal. To avoid buyer’s remorse, you’ll examine the issues, observe the quirks, and look for flaws and faults before you take things any further. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have ideas. Also, you know how to conjure more when you run out. If anyone needs ideas, you’re the one they should ask. Note that some people mistake ideas for

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Saturday, April 6, the 96th day of 2013. There are 269 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 6, 1973, Ron Blomberg of the New York Yankees became Major League Baseball’s first designated hitter as he faced pitcher Luis Tiant of the Boston Red Sox at Fenway. (Blomberg was walked with the bases loaded; Boston won the game, 15-5.) On this date: In 1830, the Church of Jesus Christ of LatterDay Saints was organized by Joseph Smith in Fayette, N.Y. In 1862, the Civil War Battle of Shiloh began in Tennessee as Confederate forces launched a surprise attack against Union troops, who beat back the Confederates the next day. In 1896, the first modern Olympic games formally opened in Athens, Greece. In 1909, American explorers Robert E. Peary and Matthew A. Henson and four Inuits became the first men to reach the North Pole. In 1917, Congress approved a declaration of war against Germany. In 1943, “Le Petit Prince” (The Little Prince) by Antoine de Saint-Exupery was first published in the U.S. by Reynal & Hitchcock of New York. In 1945, during World War II, the Japanese warship Yamato and nine other vessels sailed on a suicide mission to attack the U.S. fleet off Okinawa; the fleet was intercepted the next day. In 1959, “Gigi” won the Academy Award for best picture of 1958; Susan Hayward was named best actress for “I Want to Live!” and David Niven was named best actor for “Separate Tables.” (To the embarrassment of the show’s producers, the scheduled 2-hour ceremony fell about 20 minutes short.) In 1973, NASA launched Pioneer 11, which flew by Jupiter and Saturn. In 1988, Tirza Porat, a 15-year-old Israeli girl, was killed in a West Bank melee. (Although Arabs were initially blamed, the army concluded Tirza had been accidentally shot by a Jewish settler.) In 1998, country singer Tammy Wynette died at her Nashville home at age 55. Ten years ago: In the Iraq War, U.S. forces encircled and began flying into Baghdad’s international airport. British forces in the south made their deepest push into Basra, Iraq’s secondlargest city. Five years ago: President George W. Bush and Russian President Vladimir Putin, meeting at the Black Sea resort of Sochi, failed to overcome sharp differences over a U.S. missile defense system as they closed their seven-year relationship. Anti-China demonstrators caused chaos as the Olympic torch was relayed through London ahead of the Beijing games. One year ago: Five black people were shot, three fatally, in Tulsa, Okla.; two suspects, Jake England and Alvin Watts, are accused of targeting the victims on the basis of race. A Navy F18 Hornet jet whose pilots were forced to eject crashed in a spectacular fireball into a big apartment complex in Virginia Beach, Va., scattering plane parts and wiping out some 40 units, but killing no one. Fang Lizhi (fahng lee-juhr), 76, who was one of China’s best-known dissidents, died in Tucson, Ariz. Painter Thomas Kinkade, 54, died in Los Gatos, Calif.

Dinner-dance benefits River Crew Art program
LACONIA — A dinner-dance fundraising event for the River Crew Art Program will take place on Saturday, May 18, from 5 to 10 p.m. at the VFW Hall in Laconia. All proceeds will benefit River Crew Art, a program that aims to help homeless people by showing them how to use photography and art to raise community awareness about homelessness. Tickets for the event will go on sale soon. Volunteers are now seeking sponsors for the event, as well as items for a raffle and silent auction. Those wishing to become a sponsor, donate a raffle item, or make a donation to the River Crew Art Program can contact Dick Smith at: (203) 841-9155 or email: richard9445@ sbcglobal.net. Elaine Morrison can be reached at 5271974 or email@example.com.The program began
in February 2012 under the guidance of local volunteers Dick Smith and Elaine Morrison. During the past year, participants in the River Crew Art have created both artwork and photography, which was exhibited last September at the Busiel Mill in Laconia. The group also maintained a planter as part of the city’s Adopt-A-Spot program and received an award for its efforts. As part of their desire to give back to the community, participants painted over graffiti on the back of Laconia’s old police station. Smith and Morrison are now raising funds, which will go toward the purchase of additional art supplies and materials. The springtime dinner-dance, featuring the music of Annie and the Orphans, is part of that effort.
