Yet another committee to study CH police station issue By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
GILFORD — When in March an overflow crowd of Town Meeting voters rejected the selectmen’s proposal to build a new police station, the dilemma returned the selectmen to the drawing board. One of the first
steps in that process occurred yesterday morning when the board met with Police Chief Mark Chase to discuss the development of another proposal, which they hope will find more favor with voters, and to talk about concerns for the coming year.
“We have a very clear message” from the voters, Chase told selectmen. That message, he interpreted, was that they did not want the town to build a new police station but rather to renovate and add on to the existing municipal facility, in which the police department is
currently located. “I don’t feel it’s the best solution, but it’s what the people want,” he said. Selectmen agreed to form a new building committee with seven members, representing a mix of veterans of past buildsee CENtEr harBOr page 10

Colorado police pepper-spray 8-year-old at his elementary school
DENVER (AP) — Eight-year-old Aidan Elliott had thrown a TV and chairs at his Colorado elementary school and was trying to use a cart to bust through a door to an office where teachers and other students fled for safety. No one could calm the boy, not even the staff in a program for children with behavior problems like him. So they called police, who had intervened with Aidan twice before. Police found him with a foot-long piece of wood trim with a knife-like point in one hand and a cardboard box in the other. “Come get me, (expletive),” he said. When they couldn’t calm him down, one squirted Aidan with pepper spray. He blocked it with the cardboard box. A second squirt hit the youngster in the side of the head, and down he went, according to an account of the Feb. 22 standoff in a police report first obtained by KUSA-TV. Aidan and his mother went on national talk shows on Wednesday to say using pepper spray see SPRAY page 12

White House says shutdown would delay pay to troops WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration warned Wednesday that a federal shutdown would undermine the economic recovery, delay pay to U.S. troops fighting in three wars, slow the processing of tax returns and limit small business loans and government-backed mortgages during peak home buying season. The dire message, delivered two days before the federal government’s spending authority expires, appeared aimed at jolting congressional Republicans into a budget compromise. Billions of dollars apart, congressional negotiators were working to strike a deal by Friday to avert a shutdown by setting spending limits through the end of September. The last
such shutdown took place 15 years ago and lasted 21 days. President Barack Obama telephoned House Speaker John Boehner on Wednesday, and Boehner’s office said the speaker told Obama he was hopeful a deal could be reached. As the talks continued, the White House sought to put the prospect of a shutdown in terms people would care about, warning even that the beloved National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade in the nation’s capital would be wiped out. The Smithsonian Institution and national parks around the country would also be closed. A shutdown would come at an especially busy time for the Smithsonian. The Cherry
Blossom Festival, which concludes this weekend, draws many tourists to an area near the museums. The Smithsonian counts about 3 million visits each April and has already sold 23,000 IMAX movie and lunch combos to school groups for the month. Under long-standing federal rules, agencies would not be affected that provide for U.S. national security, dispense most types of federal benefit payments, offer inpatient medical care or outpatient emergency care, ensure the safe use of food and drugs, manage air traffic, protect and monitor borders and coastlines, guard prisoners, conduct criminal investigations and law enforcement, oversee power distribution see SHUTDOWN page 13
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin voters sent Republican Gov. Scott Walker a clear message about their unhappiness with his muscling through a law restricting union rights by sending a once runaway state Supreme Court race toward a near-certain recount and filling the governor’s former post with a Democrat. While Walker downplayed the significance of Tuesday’s elections on Wednesday, saying they were skewed by exceptional turnout in the liberal cities of Madison and Milwaukee, Democrats warned they were only a sign of what’s to come. Recall efforts have been launched against 16 state senators from both parties for their support or opposition to the bill eliminating most public employees’
collective bargaining rights. “This continues to add fuel to the tremendous fire of enthusiasm and passion to recall the Republican senators that support Scott Walker’s backwards priorities for the state,” Wisconsin Democratic Party chairman Mike Tate said of the election results. In the most closely watched race, a littleknown assistant state attorney harnessed union supporters’ anger to come from behind and possibly unseat a Wisconsin Supreme Court justice often associated with Walker. Justice David Prosser won a nonpartisan, four-way primary with 55 percent of the vote. The general election was expected to be a runaway after second-place finisher JoAnne Kloppenburg got half as many votes.
But Wednesday, unofficial returns showed Kloppenburg with a slim 204-vote lead over Prosser. His campaign has said a recount is expected. In another significant race, Democrat Chris Abele bested Republican state Rep. Jeff Stone to become the next Milwaukee County executive. Walker held that post until he was elected governor in November, and Stone twice voted for his anti-union bill. Walker discounted Abele’s win, saying Milwaukee County is historically Democratic. He also chalked up the close Supreme Court race to heavy voting in Milwaukee and Madison. Turnout in the state capital was 54 percent — twice the level usually seen in an April election.

Linguist who relearned to Preventing blasts a focus at Japan nuclear plant talk after ‘06 Bike Week crash dies at age 44 NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — As a Yale University linguist, Maria Babyonyshev knew better than most how words are formed. That expertise proved crucial after a Hells Angels motorcyclist crashed into her car during Motorcycle Week in New Hampshire in 2006, seriously injuring her. Babyonyshev, who suffered broken bones, head trauma and strokes in the crash, had to relearn to talk. She was able to make a strong recovery in speaking because she knew how language works, her husband, Ted Walls, said Wednesday. “It was amazing,” Walls said. “Because of her background in linguistics, she was actually able to make a stunning recovery. People wouldn’t realize how hard she was working.” Walls said his wife, who had moved to the United States from the Soviet Union and had studied in Massachusetts, died March 18 at their home in North Kingstown, R.I., of complications from the 2006 Motorcycle Week accident. There were 10 deaths that year during the annual event. Walls said his wife would recover words through a series of basic questions she asked and answers he gave her. If she wanted to eat, for example, she might start with “category?” and then narrow the choices as Walls gave her options. After six to nine months, she was able to string together sentences, he said, and eventually she spoke so well it was difficult to tell she had see LINGUIST page 12
Catholic Bishop McCormack to meet with Rep. Bettencourt
CONCORD (AP) — The Republican leader of the New Hampshire House is getting his private meeting with Roman Catholic Bishop John McCormack to apologize for his choice of words in calling McCormack a “pedophile pimp.” Jim Rivers, spokesman for state Rep. D.J. Bettencourt of Salem, said Wednesday that Bettencourt will meet privately with McCormack on Thursday. Rivers said the meeting is between a parishioner — Bettencourt is Catholic — and his bishop. Kevin Donovan, spokesman for the Diocese of Manchester, also said the meeting is private and McCormack won’t be commenting afterward. Last week, Bettencourt called McCormack a “pedophile pimp” who should have been led from the Statehouse in handcuffs after speaking at a rally criticizing spending cuts in the House budget. Bettencourt later said his comment was inappropriate and requested a meeting.
TOKYO (AP) — After notching a rare victory by stopping highly radioactive water from flowing into the Pacific, workers at Japan’s flooded nuclear power complex turned to their next task early Thursday: injecting nitrogen to prevent more hydrogen explosions. Nuclear officials said Wednesday there was no immediate threat of explosions like the three that rocked the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant not long after a massive tsunami hit on March 11, but their plans are a reminder of how much work remains to stabilize the complex. Workers are racing to cool down the plant’s reactors, which have been overheating since power was knocked out by the 9.0-magnitude earthquake and tsunami that killed as many as 25,000 people and destroyed hundreds of miles of coastline. Unable to restore normal cooling systems because water has damaged them and radioactivity has made conditions dangerous, workers have resorted to pumping water into the reactors and letting it
gush wherever it can. Superheated fuel rods can pull explosive hydrogen from cooling water, so now that more water is going into the reactors, the concern is that hydrogen levels are rising. Technicians began pumping nitrogen into an area around one of the plant’s six reactors in the early hours of Thursday to counteract the hydrogen, said Makoto Watanabe, a spokesman for Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency. They want to prevent hydrogen explosions that could spew radiation and damage the reactors. An internal report from March 26 by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission warned such explosions could occur. The nitrogen pumping also has risks, but the nuclear agency approved it as a necessary measure to avoid danger, spokesman Hidehiko Nishiyama said. The injection could release radioactive vapor into the environment, but residents within 12 miles (20 kilometers) of the plant have been evacuated.
TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) — A former U.S. congressman invited by Moammar Gadhafi arrived in Tripoli on Wednesday on a self-described private mission to urge the Libyan leader to step down as rebels and progovernment forces waged near stalemate battles. Curt Weldon, a Pennsylvania Republican who has visited Libya twice before, said he leading a private delegation and had informed the White House and some members of Congress about his trip. He was in
Libya’s capital as a White House envoy, Chris Stevens, was meeting rebels in their de facto capital, Benghazi, to gauge their intentions and capabilities. Gadhafi has been widely excluded from international efforts to broker a peace plan, with rebels insisting that his four-decade rule must end. Weldon would be one of the few high-profile Westerners to meet with Gadhafi since the rebellion began in February. see LIBYA page 11

The return of Hoovernomics America owes a debt of gratitude to such insightful Republican governors as Scott Walker of Wisconsin, John Kasich of Ohio, Rick Snyder of Michigan and Chris Christie of New Jersey. Were it not for them, many Americans — myself included — would still be thinking that today’s state budget messes are mainly the product of a national economic crash caused by the reckless greed of Wall Street banksters and rich speculators, as well as the abject failure by political leaders to tax their superwealthy campaign contributors in order to meet the growing needs in education and other essentials. Luckily, the GOP guvs have set the record straight by explaining that the budget woes are the fault of teachers who have health coverage and firefighters who get pensions. You see, it’s these greedy public employees, pulling down $30,000 to $50,000 a year, who’re sapping the economy and draining government treasuries — NOT billionaire casino dealers in Wall Street hedge funds who pay far lower tax rates than a firefighter and contribute far less to our nation than a teacher. It has literally been incredible to hear these learned governors lecture us that fixing state budgets is simple: deregulate corporate power, cut taxes on the super-rich (again), fire tens of thousands of middleclass public employees, eliminate state programs even as the need for them rises and — just to boost the morale of teachers, firefighters and others — take away their democratic right to bargain collectively for workplace fairness. Unfortunately for the governors, the public still doesn’t get it. By overwhelming margins, the people oppose these gubernatorial assaults on workers, worker rights and America’s middle-class dream. The governors can flim and flam, deceive and deflect, but they should remember that two things not long for this world are dogs that chase cars and politicians who lie to the people. While lying to the people is a big problem for these guvs, they’ve got another fundamental flaw that needs fixing. They’re Hooverites. “Hoover” as in Herbert Hoover. It took him some 80 years, but he has now made what looks to be a full comeback to power. With the
Great Depression spreading misery across America, President Hoover’s prescription was to insist on reducing the size and spending of governments in order to boost “business confidence.” Hoovernomics was a disaster for our country, and it was not good for him — he lost the presidency in 1932 to FDR. So here we are in a new century with widespread relentless unemployment, mass underemployment, stagnant wages, a rapidly falling middle class and dimming economic prospects even for college-educated young Americans. In the face of this destabilizing, inegalitarian pressure on our economy and society, what remedy are America’s corporate and political leaders demanding? Hoovernomics. Not a single jobs bill is in the congressional hopper. Despite rhetoric about a new green economy, the White House has offered no job-creation plans at all. Instead, Washington’s entire energy is going down the Hoover-hole of restoring business confidence. The deficit is the devil, cry the New Hooverites, as they wildly slash spending and try to kill federal programs like Head Start that lift people up. Not to be outdone, a covey of extremist right-wing governors are demonizing, disempowering and firing thousands of public employees. These Little Hoovers maniacally shriek that with state revenues down and so many families out of work, the smart thing to do is to eliminate more jobs! They’re shoving teachers, firefighters and other public employees out the door — thus shutting off the taxes that these employees pay to the state, while simultaneously increasing the number of out-of-work people looking for jobs. If ignorance is bliss, they must be ecstatic. Hoovernomics is back — as goofy and destructive today as it was last century. (Jim Hightower has been called American’s most popular populist. The radio commentator and former Texas Commissioner of Agriculture is author of seven books, including “There’s Nothing In the Middle of Road but Yellow Stripes and Dead Armadillos” and his new work, “Swim Against the Current: Even Dead Fish Can Go With The Flow”.)
Why can’t Democrats accept the will of American voters? To the editor, As he left Constitution Hall, Benjamin Franklin was asked by Mrs. Powe, “What kind of government have you given us?” Franklin responded, “A Republic if you can kept it.” Across the country, the people spoke. They elected a majority of Republicans to represent their interests.
The Democrats lost. Rather than accept the will of the majority, they have resorted to mob rule thuggery in an attempt to intimidate the elected representatives. Have Democrats given up on the Republic in favor of bully politics? Bob Meade Laconia
LETTERS School Board has responsibility to carry out will of the voters To the editor, A response to the Gilford School Board and Joe Wernig: At Monday evening’s School Board meeting the board laid out its case for ignoring the will of the voters. They began by stating that the voters in 1998 and 2011 were confused! How insulting to the local electorate! The School Board built a case around a handful of narrow quotes from 12-year-old meeting minutes. All of these statements where made during the debate process and none of the ideas presented made it into the law. At every town meeting or deliberative session any taxpayer can make a motion to amend any particular article. This did not happen. The plan passed as proposed. The board also relied heavily on their “smoking gun”, a letter from some partisan at the DOE stating an obscure law that is only meant to define a “standard” school and not to dictate the administrative structure of a district. When presented with a reading of RSA 194c:5 (the intent of this law IS to dictate the administrative structure of a district) which simply states that a superintendent is NOT required and superintendent services may be divvied up amongst other staff or contracted out, the School Board chose not to respond. During the meeting I read from the district’s own policy, which stated the School Board has a responsibility to carry out the will of the district’s voters. Once again, the School Board chose not to respond. Joe Wernig
did respond however: he stood up, turned to me and in a very thuggish manner began to yell at me, telling me I needed to “ just live with it” and perhaps I should consider moving. I requested an opportunity to respond, considering Joe had directed his comment at me rather than to the board. Chairman Webber, using very poor taste, didn’t allow me to respond, thus protecting the School Board’s ever loyal lapdog from my response. To Joe Wernig: I researched the RSAs, showed up at the meeting prepared and with the law in hand and presented word-for-word readings of the law. I didn’t issue any opinions just facts. I understand that the democratic process and rule of law may not mean much in your household, but in mine it does. No, I will not just accept a thwarting of the will of the voters. At the last meeting Joe stated that he often votes on articles without knowing anything about them. That says a lot about Joe Wernig. If he can’t value and take his own vote seriously how could he respect the votes of the overwhelming majority of the district’s voters? So Mr. Wernig, as an American, I cannot possibly take your slobbering attempt to intimidate me seriously. In conclusion, I would like to respond to the School Board and some of their supporters who criticized the media for giving this story too much play: any time an elected body refuses to listen to its contingents it SHOULD be a big story. This isn’t going away! Kevin Leandro Gilford

LETTERS Truth will prevail; time will bring out facts about Obama’s birth
House Republican budget is an economic & social disaster
To the editor, The 1930s were a time of turmoil and unrest. Communists, fascists and socialsits squabbled like sibling rivalries for power. Hitler’s Nazism (national socialism) , Mussolini’s Fascism and Stalin’s Marxism found their way to America. Franklin Roosevelt brought approval from all three with his dictatorial edicts. In a confused state of mind he often conferred with his communist adviser Alger Hiss. In 1934 Weld Frank wrote “..fascism may by so gradual in the United States that most voters will not be aware of its existence...they will be judicious, black frocked gentlemen: graduates of the best universities: disciples of Nicholas Murray Butler and Walter Lippmann”. Harold Ickes, Roosevelt’s secretary of Interior proclaimed “ what we are doing in this country were some of the things that were done in Russia and even some things that were done under Hitler in Germany. But we are doing them in an orderly way”. He is the same Harold Ickes that refused to let the Army place radars atop of hills in Hawaii in 1941. Exclaiming that he “didn’t want any tree’s cut down”. He is the father of Harold Ickes who received a political appointment from President Bill Clinton. Joshua Reuban Clark had seen it coming and attempted to warn America of the evil fast approaching. He served as ambassador to Mexico and assistant Secretary of State for six years. He saw a “force of evil being gestated or generated in the United States”. It infiltrated the State Department. He was hired as an attorney by the first international conglomerate in the U.S., The American International Corporation. He saw the corporation buying up all the copper,steal, boats, oil railroads and more. Clark found out 18 months later when our men were sent to fight in the first World War what their plan had been after Woodrow Wilson took office. Wilson had no love for our Constitution and Clark saw him groomed for the presidency by wealthy powerful men. Wilson spoke of a force so pow-
To the editor, The state budget that New Hampshire’s Republican-controlled House passed on March 30 is an economic and social disaster that manages to combine the worst of both worlds. It is not penny wise, and it is definitely dollar foolish. It mutilates the state’s health, education and safety in the short term. And its provisions guarantee the need for even greater state expenditures in the future, while crippling N.H.’s chances for recovery, growth and prosperity. This so-called budget drops preventative health care for children, cuts access to vital health care services, eliminates treatment for 8,000 people with severe mental illnesses, and slaps hospitals with a $115-million tax increase. It cripples special education and cuts funding for the state university and community college system by almost 50-percent. These cuts come when it is more important than ever that students be able to get the education and skills they need for a 21st century world and economy and for the jobs that come with good wages and enable new workers to raise and provide for a family. A skilled and healthy workforce is necessary if our state hopes to attract good businesses and industries. When it comes to public safety, the House budget eliminates the Consumer Protection Bureau, fires the state’s auditors, drastically reduces support for victims of domestic violence and cuts drug and alcohol treatment for 25,000 people. It ends effective programs that helps kids with drug or behavior problems stay out of trouble and out of jail and helps them find jobs and become productive members of society. And it will force the closing of the state prison in Berlin. The budget proposals also include radical malicious and self-defeating attacks on working people: on police officers, fire fighters, teachers, and on every working
erful that men dind’t speak beyond a whisper when mentioning it. Thses men operated through the Carnegie Foundation for International Peace. Their objective was to “get the masses to do whats good for them”. Wilson ran on the promise to “keep our boys out of the war” Six weeks following his election our men were conscripted and dying in a senceless war. And those who manipulated our country were gaining more power and accumulation untold wealth. And so it has been since. More wars, more frequently. More turmoil, more deceit, more control, more debt. Bigger profits for the money changers and conglomerates. For over 100 years we have had no transperancy within our government. “The illegal we do immediatley. The Unconstitutional takes a little longer” Henry A. Kissinger, Oct 28, 1973. The New York Times. Truth will always prevail. Time will bring about the facts on Obama’s birth. Our Founding Fathers were well versed on natural and ;aws of nations. “The Law of Nations” written by Emer de Vattel in the mid 1700’s states: To be of a country, it is necessary that a person be born of, a father who is a citizen; for if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country”. America is divided between those who espouse communist ideologies, those who are confused and those who hold fast to our Divinely Inspired Constitution. We have come a long way since our founding. Made many mistakes and accomplished untold successes. We have burried our dead all around the world, fed the hungry, clothed the naked and brought thousands here to educate. When the flags of communism, fascism and socialsim no longer flutter and the halls of higher learning return to principles they have betrayed, those who held fast will commence repairing assaults upon our legacy. And Old Glory will once again smile down upon the brave and free who have held our Constitution inviolate. Gene Danforth Danbury
Sue Smith Benefit Yard Sale drop offs tonight and Friday night To the editor, Last week the N.H. House approved a state budget for FY2012-13 that made major cuts to nearly every state service, from education to social services to public safety. The 243 House Republicans who voted for the budget, insist that revenue shortfalls required cutting programs, Yet these House members have approved four bills (HB-37, HB-154, HB-166, and HB-213), that, if revenue exceeds their predictions, will reduce taxes on businesses, communications, and meals and lodging and, consequently, lose the state tens of millions of dollars, to the benefit of tourists and global corporations — not NH residents. In another revenue-losing measure, the House cut the tax on cigarettes. The GOP-dominated House has passed other legislation that will, if approved in the State Senate, lose
additional revenues. For example, HB-519 withdraws New Hampshire from RGGI that, since 2008, has brought $31-million to state citizens and businesses for energy efficiency and conservation projects. The House budget also eliminates the State Arts Council that annually generates millions of dollars from private sources for cultural programs. House Majority Leader William O’Brien called passage of the budget a “historic achievement” that takes “government back to the point that we are living within our means.” On the contrary, the budget and other bills for which he is so proud, will decimate the social, health, cultural, and education programs of the state and ensure that the “means” will be smaller for everyone. Margaret Merritt Center Sandwich
person in New Hampshire, whether they belong to a union or not. If the economy recovers faster than predicted and the state collects more revenue, under this budget none of that money will go to help fix any of the damage already done. It will all go to tax cuts that primarily benefit out-of-state people and corporations. Combined with other cuts, this means that while the House is hammering families and communities across the state, it is also reducing revenue by over $200-million. The Republicans claim that they have avoided downshifting costs from the state to towns and counties. They might as well argue that the sun rises in the west. Despite what they say, the harm done by their budget will show up at the local level in increased costs to police departments, courts, jails, hospitals (especially emergency rooms), schools, nursing homes, and public works departments. If you think your property taxes are too high now, as the emcee used to say: “You ain’t seen nothing yet!” The end result is going to be a New Hampshire that is poorer, less safe, less healthy and less educated. States that have already engaged in a similar “race to the bottom” ended up there and have stayed there. Despite the Republican rhetoric about the importance of business, under their economic plan this will be a state where businesses close, young people leave, and new and expanding companies avoid. This budget is not thought out, illogical, cruel, harmful, with no care is given to short or long term consequences, and with no social conscience. Under the House Republicans, we’ve gone beyond issues of a revenue problem or a spending problem. We have a leadership problem and a lack-ofresponsibility problem. Ed Allard Laconia
GOP cut to DHHS budget is indeed a true & major reduction To the editor, Representative Greg Hill, in an April 5 letter to the Daily Sun, asserted that the Department of Health and Human Services budget was not cut but was actually increased for next year. This is not accurate. In FY 2010 and FY 2011, states received American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds as a bridge to avoid major cuts in public safety, education and health and welfare programs, which would otherwise have happened as a result of the deep recession. This temporarily alleviated pressure on the general fund appropriations. The ARRA funds were not intended to be permanent and ended with the FY 2011 appropriation.
In FY 2011, the general fund budget for DHHS was approximately $617-million, but was augmented with $94-million in ARRA funds for a total of $711-million. Thus the FY 2012 general fund appropriation would have had to be $711-million just to remain at the prior year level. The governor’s budget reduced this by 5-percent, to a level of approximately $675-million. The House further reduced this by $38-million, to approximately $637-million. This is indeed a true and major reduction and is the source of the current discussion on the impact of the cuts. Russ Armstrong Gilford
Republicans, get on with governing in a civil & productive way To the editor, Is is reflected clearly in the papers this week, the speaker and majority leader need to go.

LETTERS Stop giving free medical care to people who don’t want to work
America grew to be a great nation when family was an institution
To the editor, We have been hearing of the federal government shutting down. It has not happened yet. I think they are trying to scare the American people. Are we scared yet? It might not be so bad if they do shut down. They need to stop SPENDING our hard earned tax dollars and get real. They are much too busy being corrupted by everything they touch or do. Would it not be nice if we had a government that cared about the American people? They are too busy taking the American people to the cleaners while others who should not get a free ride do. We had our election and nothing has changed. Same old same old. That is why we need someone who has never been in politics. Lets see Donald Trump get in instead of the same old crooks.
To the editor, I can remember a time, before shopping malls, when most businesses were closed on Sunday — even in the city, everything, with the exception of a corner store which serviced several blocks in the urban neighborhood in Chicago, that I grew up in, was closed. This custom even inspired songs such as, “Sunday Morning Coming Down”. It was an American custom to keep Sunday as a day of rest. There was plenty to find fault with in American culture; racism, especially prejudice against black people was common. Yet the family was an institution that was held in high esteem. Most believed in and aspired to marriage for life. Sexual relations outside of marriage still brought the stigma of shame, which if not assuaged by the compassion of God’s love through His people, often proved hard to bear. Most of our citizens at least nominally attended Protestant or Catholic Church services. Voluntary prayer and Bible reading in public schools was at the discretion of the local school boards, many encouraged it. To this I should add that a belief in a God who judged men according to their deeds was common. These things were part of American culture. My Mom was born in 1914. I asked her if these things were so when she was growing up. She confirmed that they were. From the study of history, that I have done, these customs and beliefs seem to have been common in the middle of
Don’t be fooled by talk. Promises none of them have EVER kept. You know how Obamacare is. We must not let Obama in again or we are all FINISHED! Think about that. If he was sincere he would have shown his birth certificate that we all have asked to see. Where is it? He is a dictator, just like Hitler. Not getting the medical care people need is how he is getting rid of the people that he says is making health care go through the roof. Well then, stop giving it to lazy people who do not want to work because they will loose all the free benefits they are getting. While we find it hard to survive this crazy world of today. We get no help from the government. Instead we are taxed even more. How much can we take? Anna DeRose, Moultonborough

the 19th Century and at the time of the American Revolution. America grew to be a great nation through a time when these customs and beliefs were common and encouraged. In the past 40 years — I know the roots for these changes go back to the middle of the 18th century and before by those working, knowingly or unknowingly, sometimes making major changes in how things were understood, sometimes making small seemingly innocuous changes, willing to wait patiently for a later generation for which the greater changes would go unnoticed — we have had an avalanche of falling away from these customs and beliefs. We now have a generation who think the blessings of prosperity, that God had bestowed on America because we were a God-fearing nation with customs that reflected His laws and righteousness are a birthright that Americans are entitled to whether they follow God or not. Unless we repent and turn back to the God who created us, I fear that God is going to break the staff of prosperity that we have been accustomed to. I’ve been to several third world countries. The prosperity that we have enjoyed is one of the exceptions in this world. It is not the norm and we may lose it shortly, because we have not the sense to realize from whom it comes and what He requires. John Demakowski Franklin
Why would ‘safe’ boating advocates be pushing for more speed? To the editor, What an unfortunate event. Senator Forsythe voted in support of his friends at Safe Boaters of NH who want high speed boating on the Broads. Forsythe sold out his support of local business, many of which have seen an increase in their profits from family boaters and anglers returning to a friendlier, tamer Lake Winnipesaukee. Business owners employ people and pay revenue taxes to our state. Forsythe’s vote was self-serving to pay back a favor to benefit a small number of boaters who want to go fast. These go-fast boaters are led by Scott Verdonck, who is promising our state reps he will not ask for more than 55 mph in the Broads, when he was actually quoted in the Concord Monitor as saying, “Of course we have members that would prefer no limits,” adding that he personally opposes any limits because he has yet to see data supporting their effectiveness. Does this sound like someone who is satis-
fied with 55? Safe Boaters are misinforming reps a compromise has been reached and everyone is happy with the 55 mph in the Broads. This is not true. Almost 80-percent of people want the speed limit law left alone. There have already been two compromises on speed limits. A law already exists (RSA 270-D:2.1x.d), which allows for high speed boating with no speed limit and keeps the public at a safe distance of one-half mile away. Under the proposed bill of 55 mph in the Broads, boats are only required in stay 150 feet from other boats or shoreline. A boat traveling at 55 mph eats up 150 feet in 1.8 seconds, which is not enough time to avert a collision. Why would a group who advocates SAFE BOATING want FASTER speeds? Please tell your Reps to vote ITL on SB-27. Leave speed limits alone. Mark & Nancy Watson Alton Bay

LETTERS Other options for dealing with power shortage worse than Pass To the editor, Just a thought. My name is Bob Kennelly and I am probably the only one who has written to support the Northern Pass. I believe it is the only way to get ample, green electric energy to our area. I have been vilified for this opinion. I retired 15 years ago from an electric utility where I worked for 41 years, which makes me an old man with knowledge of electric utilities and how they work. I agree with many of the complaints that have been written by people living in the effected areas about the impact of Northern Pass on the beauty of the land. However I disagree with many other statements as wrong or misleading — the right of way is always supposed to be 150 feet, not more than that; the height is supposed to be between 80 and 135 feet; people state there is no local need for the power, but PSNH has already bid for the power. We are dealing with the results of history in the power industry. Several years ago the power industry was deregulated and the electric utilities had to sell there power producing facilities. This had a profound effect on the supply of electric power. The utilities had to sell the plants to big companies like South Florida Power and Enron. Since utilities no longer could produce power, they no longer had to answer to state public service commissions
about having reserve power in place for peak loads times such as a hot summer. The big companies that now produced power did not care about have standby power because it was not profitable. Luckily this deregulation craze slowed down before it got to N.H. The net effect of all this is that not enough new power generation is being built which will inevitably lead to rolling blackouts and such if we have a severe summer. The options for dealing with this problem seem far worse than Northern Pass. Underground cables is not an option due to cost and maintenance problems. The Vermont option could work but I do not know why it was turned down. The part of this that worries me is that Canada is going to say the heck with you and we’re going to keep this energy to ourselves. The other fear I have is the plants in the Midwest that are burning coal and spewing pollutants into the atmosphere to drift our way in the air. In short I want Niagara Falls and TVA and Boulder Dam and water power from Canada. Nobody else is saying this and I think N..H should know. I want this clean and readily available power for my grandkids and great-grandkids. I want to that you if you just listen to me. Bob Kennelly Meredith
There will be yard sale on Sue Smith’s behalf on Saturday To the editor, If you have ever been hospitalized or had a loved one facing the challenges of a debilitating illness, you may remember certain nurses who stand out in your memory — ones who were particularly kind and supportive and went the extra mile in providing care to their patients. Sue Smith has been that kind of nurse. Whether working with the developmentally disabled at the former Laconia State School or at Lakes Region General Hospital in the elder care unit, she has offered skilled care and words of encouragement to her many patients, as well as to their families. Now she is facing her own challenges as she struggles to regain her mobility after a series of setbacks which required amputation of her legs. Her goal is to live independently again in her own home, and with the grit and determination she has shown throughout her ordeal, this reality seems to be closer at hand. Needless
to say, there are still many hurdles to overcome and expenses to meet. On Saturday, April 9, there will be a yard sale held on her behalf at Tardif Park clubhouse, Crescent Street, Laconia, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.. Anyone wishing to donate items for the sale may bring them there on Thursday and Friday evenings from 5:30 to 8 p.m.. Cash donations will also be much appreciated, as there will continue to be a myriad of expenses in order to make her return home possible. Checks may be made payable to “The Sue Smith Fund” and forwarded to any of the Meredith Village Savings Bank branches. For further information, you may phone 524-6466. Please make plans to attend the sale. Let us show community support and put the fund over the top for this extraordinary woman. Claire Clark Laconia
Let’s hope Meredith reps come to value the work of BCEDC To the editor, Last week, the Belknap County Economic Development Council held its annual meeting and named the recipients of several of their annual awards. Two of these awards went to Meredith residents; a fact of which we should be proud. In addition to posthumous recognition of Senator Carl Johnson’s work, the Council awarded Rusty McLear with its Directors Award in recognition of his vision in transforming the mill buildings in Meredith. Tom and Lori Oakley shared the Corporate
mitment to community service. It is unfortunate that Meredith’s State Representatives, Colette Worsman and Bob Greemore, fail to see the great value the Belknap County Council provides to our town and our county. BCEDC brings jobs and economic vitality to our county, which is critical in these times of budget crises and slow economic growth. The council certainly values what Meredith residents have to offer our region; let’s hope our elected representatives can come to understand what the council has to offer as well.

The coaching staff of the Lakes Region Wavemakers is hosting the
4th annual Wave Swim Clinic
April 11th-20th & May 2nd- 11th* This clinic is geared towards swimmers who have just completed their winter swim season, swimmers who want to get a jump on the summer season, and swimmers who are looking to get a taste of what the swim team experience is like. This clinic offers a great opportunity for experienced swimmers to maintain their fitness level while fine tuning their skills. New swimmers will be introduced to the sport of competitive swimming. Over the 4 weeks, swimmers will receive evaluation of their strokes and technique, while learning the practice drills which are essential to building strength, endurance and improving their swimming ability.
GILFORD — Before the Board of Selectmen vote on an official acceptance of the recent state Department of Transportation audit of the main Route 11-A/village intersection it will host a public hearing at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the meeting room at the town offices. DOT has identified the spot where the state highway intersects with Belknap Mountain Road and Schoolhouse Hill Road as one of the most dangerous in the state. The audit, which can be viewed in its entirety on the Gilford town website, recommends local taxpayers pay for sidewalks on Belknap Mountain Road and School House Hill Road. Other audit recommendations for the town to pay for would include trimming the tree canopy that overhangs School House Hill Road near 18 Schoolhouse Hill Road and install a sign on Schoolhouse Hill Road warning people of the upcoming intersection. In exchange, DOT said it should remove a tree and relocate a retaining wall near 5 Schoolhouse Hill Road and clear the vegetation from the northeast corner of the intersection. DOT also said it should evaluate the size and location of “speed limit” signs, remove directional signs that point to Alton and Gilford Village, and install rumble strips on Route 11A near the intersection. The state said it should consider lowering the grade on Route 11-A on the eastbound — Laconia — approach and move back the guardrails on the westbound — Gunstock — approach. According to Town Administrator Scott Dunn and with the exception of the sidewalks, which may be challenged by selectmen depending on input at Wednesday’s public hearing, all of the local suggestions could be completed by the local public works department as part of the regular work schedule but would still come at some cost to the local taxpayers.

DOT met with Belmont’s Selectmen and offered them an opportunity to participate in a 90-percent federaland 10-percent state-funded program that would pay for safety repairs to two of it’s “five percent” intersections. According to the audit performed by DOT on Oct. 1, 2010, the village intersection was identified on the most recent “five percent report” or the federal Highway Safety Improvement Program that requires states to submit an annual report describing not less than 5-percent of their highway locations exhibiting the most severe safety needs. The intent of this provision is to raise public awareness of the highway safety needs and challenges and is also referred to as the transparency report. Dunn said no such offers have been made to Gilford as far as its ability to participate in HSIP federal funds even though the criteria for inclusion appears to be the same as Belmont’s. “Coincidentally, the town of Gilford was the beneficiary of a Road Safety Audit presentation by officials from DOT on March 23. The primary focus of this discussion was a list of improvements that are recommended to make the Route 11A/Belknap Mountain Road/Schoolhouse Hill Road intersection safer,” wrote Dunn to DOT engineer William Oldenburg in e-mail sent yesterday. “Unfortunately, during the Gilford presentation there was no mention made of any grant funding source, nor is any mention made of this in the actual report. This leads us to wonder why a “hazardous” intersection in Belmont may be eligible for grant funds while a “dangerous” intersection in Gilford has not been identified for possible grant funding eligibility,” Dunn continued. The federal grant program, redesigned in 2005, does not pay for sidewalks but is designed specifically to pay for signs, painting and minimal see next page

Laconia planners don’t want to impose impact fees on projects already approved By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA —Following a public hearing this week, the Planning Board agreed to exempt all previously approved projects and affordable housing developments from development impact fees and to recommend draft regulations for the assessment and administration of such fees to the City Council next month. Impact fees are one-time charges on new development, levied when projects are approved by local planning boards, to fund either investment in municipal capital projects serving the development or to recoup past investment in expanded facilities that accommodate it. A year ago the Planning Board recommended the City Council adopt a schedule of impact fees initially prepared and presented by Bruce Mayberry of BCM Planning LLC of New Gloucester, Maine in June 2009. The Planning Board favored levying impact fees at 25-percent of their full rate and applying them to the full range of municipal services — schools, police, fire, recreation roads and library. The effect would be fees of $1,907 for a detached single family home, $915 for a townhouse, $2,319 for a duplex, $1,740 for a multi-family building and $1,453 for a manufactured housing unit. Commercial projects would be charged by the square foot and assessed only for their impact on public safety services and roads. At from preceding page sight-line improvements like tree and brush removal. Dunn said increasing police presence and putting a speed trailer near the intersection is doable within the existing police budget. In its notice of public hearing, Selectmen also indicated as a board it “would most likely be opposed” to rumble strips on Route 11 and changing the elevation of the road. Town officials also said they would like the NHDOT to paint speed reductions notices or “traffic calming
the 25-percent rate retail space would be charged $0.75, office space $0.55 and industrial space, including storage, $0.24. Since then the council has held a public hearing and reviewed several draft ordinances. The most recent draft would exempt, or “grandfather,” all projects the board has approved but the developer has yet to complete from impact fees. State law exempts approved projects from changes to ordinances and regulations, but authorizes municipalities to levy impact fees at their discretion. At the request of the council, the board reconsidered the exemption in light of an estimate that the city would forgo as much as $2.6-million in fee income by “grandfathering” approved projects. Planning Director Shanna Saunders found that since 2004 the Planning Board has approved 18 residential projects with a total of 1,198 units that remain to be constructed and occupied. She calculated that if the remaining units were completed and assessed impact fees, the proceeds would amount to $2.6-million, or $1,888 per unit, between 2011 and 2014. Attorney Regina Nadeau, speaking on behalf of developer Kevin Morrissette, reminded the board that the recession stalled construction and sales, leaving developers with servicing debt and paying taxes on land that has lost value and produced no income. “They have already incurred see next page devices” onto the road. The N.H 2011 “five percent” report contains accident information from 2002 through 2009 but does not include the fatal accident in February of 2010. As part of the preparation for the audit, Gilford Police reported 21 “reportable” incidents at the intersection, including the fatal crash. While speeding is partially to blame for many of the accidents at the village intersection, police said it did not appear to play any role in the February fatal crash.

CENTER HARBOR from page one ing committees as well as fresh perspectives. Selectmen David Hughes and Randy Mattson agreed, over disagreement from Selectman Charley Hanson, that the committee should look at all town department needs when developing options. Hanson wanted the committee to restrict its scope to police services. Mattson cautioned, though, that fiscally-conscious voters might not like any of the renovation options. “They’re going to be huge,” she said, referring to the costs of such a project, adding that’s why previous building committees decided to pursue other avenues. The committee will have to wait until March, 2012 to ask voters for approval for a project and the police department’s space concerns can’t wait that long. “We have some needs that will have to be addressed immediately,” said Chase. As he explained at the Town Meeting, his department’s limited available space compromises its ability to properly store evidence and process bookings. Chase presented two options to selectmen. The first option was to rent a temporary building. “It’s got its issues,” he said of the proposal. The cost of delivering, placing and renting such a building for a year would cost about $44,000, he said. Another drawback is that the town would have to figure out where to locate the building, such as in the alreadycrowded parking lot or on nearby park land, which could elicit political repercussions. Another possibility, which also carries political baggage, would be to construct a temporary wall across one of the bays used by the Fire Department. Chase said the newly created room would be used for evidence processing and storage. from preceding page costs they did not anticipate,” she said, warning that “impact fees will ensure that these projects do not get built.” “Grandfathering is very important,” Morrissette told the board. He said that the real estate market is marked by excess supply, slack demand and falling prices, adding “there’s not much light at the end of the tunnel.” Developers, he continued, “have already incurred additional costs.” Urging the board to sustain the exemption for approved projects, he said that “what’s before you is as good as it gets.” Attorney Pat Wood questioned the wisdom of introducing impact fees. “What purposes are we raising the money for?,” he asked. He said that the proceeds from impact fees can only be applied to projects required to accommodate increased development. “Capital expenditures in recent years,” he insisted, “are clearly not development related.” Asking “what capital infrastructure do we need because of this development,” Wood said that before assessing impact fees, the board must identify legitimate purposes for the funds. “You’re not done,” he said. Linda Harvey, executive director of the Laconia Area Community Land Trust, was troubled to find
Anticipating a negative reaction from Fire Chief John Schlemmer, Chase told selectmen, “Unfortunately, we have to make choices, compromises.” He didn’t have an estimate for the cost of construction, which Hanson put at about $1,000, but Chase said the cost of evidence lockers would be about $6,000. “It will be a lot cheaper to do that than get a trailer,” Hanson noted. “I am adamantly against this,” said Schlemmer. The bay in question is currently used to house the fire department’s rescue boat and relocating it would result in slower response times. Additionally, firefighters need the space to load hoses onto trucks, a task which cannot be done outside during freezing temperatures. If the temporary wall is to be constructed, Schlemmer said the fire department would have to go looking for space elsewhere. “We’re just going around in a big circle now.” Selectmen concluded that they would inspect the area in question and revisit the question at the board’s next meeting, which will be held at 7 p.m. on April 13. Resident Dennis Schofield said, instead of trying to interpret voter intentions through their votes, the town should send out surveys. That way the town could find out how much voters were willing to spend and how they’d like it spent. “You’re going to get registered voters, taxpayers, who should have a say... Let’s go out and ask them.” Although she said she’s not in favor of the concept, Helen Heiner asked if the town had a position on contracting with the county or other regional police authority to provide local services. Barnstead, for see next page that the board had deleted an exemption for affordable housing from the draft. Saunders explained that the proposal includes a waiver of up to 80-percent of impact fees for projects that further “smart growth” by rehabilitating and reusing existing buildings and noted that most affordable housing development meets this test. Harvey was not impressed. “We would not be able to absorb impact fees,” she said. She reminded the board that the trust has undertaken projects at the request of the city, including the Millview, a housing complex built on the site of the former Vernitron factory on Union Avenue. Financing such projects, she said, is very challenging and complex and additional costs are difficult to meet. “We hope the city will continue its partnership with us,” Harvey said. “An impact fee does not feel like that.” Persuaded, the board unanimously agreed to exempt approved projects and affordable housing and recommended assessing impact fees at 25-percent of their full value for five years, then reviewing the fees in light of the condition of the property market and the property. City Council will have the final word.

recession. “When you were born in the 20s and grew up in the 30s, I’ll tell you about a hard time. This is just a temporary dislocation.” Also unlike the times of his youth, when drug crimes were only present in the worst of urban neighborhoods and “rape was unheard of,” he said residents who think Center Harbor doesn’t need a modern police force are mistaken. “Look at Mont Vernon, that is a nice, quiet town. Look at Franklin,” he said, referring to an 11-person drug bust reported on in yesterday’s newspapers. “How far away is Franklin?” Marshall concluded his statement by recommending that a defense lawyer be appointed to the building committee, one who could point out areas where limited facilities are compromising prosecutions. “We’re leaving ourselves vulnerable,” Marshall said.
BELMONT from page one when, by a margin of just two votes, just 116 residents of the Shaker Regional School District added $213,830 to the 2011-12 budget with the intention prodding the School Board into settling its differences with the teachers’ union and accepting a collective bargaining agreement. “I know he was hurt and emotionally drained to think of all the work he did to the town budget,” Pike said making the motion to table Knowlton’s resignation for 60 days. Selectman Ron Cormier agreed and Selectman David Morse was not at Monday’s meeting. A motion to table any matter cannot be discussed and must be voted immediately. Knowlton was not at Monday’s meeting but said in an earlier telephone conversation that his recnt letter to the editor pretty much said it all and that he was hurt and insulted by the action of the school district’s voters in light of the cuts and sacrifices the Belmont Budget Committee worked so hard to get the town’s own employees to accept. “I reflected back to the months of meetings held the by the Belmont Budget Committee, selectman’s reps and department heads,” Knowlton wrote. “From the start, the state of the economy and that fact that many taxpayers were struggling to make
ends meet were discussed... We ‘nickeled and dimed,’ squeezed and cut, succeeding in finalizing a flat budget,” he continued. He went on to say the same people who worked so hard to level fund the town budget “sat by quietly” while the Shaker amendment to increase the school budget was discussed on the floor. Tongue firmly in cheek, Knowlton wrote that perhaps the economy had “turned around and people were no longer in need of tax relief” and profusely apologized for “misinterpreting” what he had been hearing from taxpayers about budget cuts and now “realizes things out there aren’t so bad after all.” He also wondered aloud if some town officials were “intimidated when it comes to speaking up in their own defense at school meetings.” “Either way,” he continued, “it finally sunk in just how futile our efforts were and what a waste of time it will be for me to continue serving on the Budget Committee.” Selectmen said they will revisit his resignation in 60 days. Knowlton said he would continue to serve on the Conservation Commission and Pike and Cormier reappointed him to a three-year term Monday night without any further discussion. — Gail Ober
LIBYA from page 3 Weldon, who served two decades in Congress before losing his seat in 2006, was part of a bipartisan delegation that visited Libya in 2004 after Gadhafi agreed to abandon his nuclear program. The seven-member U.S. team included then-Sen. Joe Biden and included an address by Weldon to the Libyan Peoples’ General Conference — a pro-
Gadhafi forum — to urge greater understanding between Libya and the United States. Weldon also visited Libya last year to study U.S. business opportunities. “There is no question that America should play a critical role in helping the Libyans build a new government,” Weldon wrote in an editorial published Tuesday in The New York Times.

from preceding page example, is exploring such a relationship with the Belknap County Sheriff Department. “Where are we with this issue? It’s going to come back up and around.” Chase said he was paying close attention to the Barnstead proposal. “It’s borderline comical, from my perspective,” he said. Yes, Sheriff Craig Wiggin’s proposal will save money, he added, but only by offering police protections with fewer officers. The same reduction could be made by the municipal department. By dissolving the municipal department, “What they will lose is that community contact,” he said. Carl Marshall urged the town to press forward and said residents of his age won’t buy arguments that proposals should be scuttled due to the current

LINGUIST from page 3 the impairment. Babyonyshev left her native Soviet Union after her father got into trouble with Soviet authorities for a book he was writing, Walls said. She attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and even returned to Yale as an associate research scientist after the accident, he said. “This is a person who really was a bright star in the Russian community in the Boston area,” Walls said.
MIT professor Kenneth Wexler said Babyonyshev made important contributions in the linguistics field, such as showing how children have particular difficulty with structures of certain kinds of verbs. That research could prove useful for pinpointing genetic causes and understanding autism and other language disorders, he said. “She was quite well known,” Wexler said. “I think her work was penetrating, creative, motivated by a deep curiosity about what’s in the human mind.”
SPRAY from page 2 on an unruly 8-year-old was too much. Police and officials at Glennon Heights Elementary in Lakewood, Colo., say it could’ve been worse. “Had the officers chosen to be hands-on with him, the potential for him getting some type of injury and, maybe even officers, would have been much higher,” police spokesman Steve
Davis said. “It was the best choice made,” he said. Aidan started acting up while on the bus to school, the police report said. He began screaming and then continued after breakfast while throwing chairs at his teachers. “He was being very aggressive, very violent,” said Melissa Reeves, the school district spokeswoman.

0-5 Red Sox come up empty again in Cleveland CLEVELAND -- Asdrubal Cabrera had four RBIs, Shin-Soo Choo hit a two-run homer and the Cleveland Indians kept the built-to-win Boston Red Sox winless on Wednesday night with an 8-4 victory that dropped one of baseball’s big spenders to 0-5. From Cambridge to Cape Cod, the panic buttons are glowing. The Red Sox are off to their worst start in 15 years and look nothing like the team many forecast to be the last one standing in October. Boston hasn’t started this poorly since 1996, and after finishing this series Thursday, the Sox head home to face the rival New York Yankees on Friday and what could be angry fans in Fenway Park. Reliever Rafael Perez (1-0) worked 1 1/3 perfect innings for the Indians, who have won three straight. Cabrera hit a three-run homer off reliever Dan Wheeler to cap a strange sixth inning, when mistakes on the mound and in the field cost the Red Sox four runs. Matt LaPorta also homered for Cleveland. In the sixth, Boston relievers Dennys Reyes, on for
Daisuke Matsuzaka (0-1), hit the first two batters and walked the third, forcing manager Terry Francona to make another switch. Wheeler got Michael Brantley to line to third, where Kevin Youkilis dropped the ball. Youkilis quickly recovered, stepped on the bag and threw home. Veteran catcher Jason Varitek, assuming a force was still in effect, caught the ball with his foot on the plate. However, because Youkilis had already gotten one out, Varitek had to tag the runner, but Travis Buck scored without being touched. The play underscored Boston’s many struggles so far, and Cabrera made things worse by belting his first homer to right, putting Cleveland ahead 7-2. The Red Sox are batting just .190, and have a team ERA of 8.33 -- hardly championship-caliber numbers. Before the game, Francona said he makes a point of not watching TV while his team is scuffling, so he didn’t see the graphic showing that no team starting 0-4 has won the World Series. Despite the unexpectedly poor start, he’s not panicking.
SHUTDOWN from page 2 and oversee banks. Mail deliveries would continue in the event of a shutdown. U.S. postal operations are not subsidized by tax dollars. According to the shutdown scenario described by the administration, the government would have to significantly cut staffing across the executive branch, including workers at the White House and civilian employees at the Defense Department; close to 800,000 workers would be affected. Congress and the federal court system will also be subject to a shutdown. At the Pentagon, defense officials were finaliz-
ing plans that would lay out how the department would deal with a shutdown. But they already have acknowledged that U.S. military troops — including those in war zones — would receive one week’s pay instead of two in their next paycheck if the government were to close. Military personnel at home and abroad would continue to earn pay, but they wouldn’t get paychecks until there was a budget agreement and government operations resumed. Col. Dave Lapan, a Pentagon spokesman, said that the Pentagon would be open on Monday and would be staffed.
BOAT from page one sels to proceed at “a safe speed that is reasonable and prudent under the existing conditions.” However, the Senate amended the bill by maintaining the current daytime and night time speed limits but exempting the Broads, where the daytime speed limit would be 55 mph. The amendment represented a compromise, offered by Scott Verdonck, the president of SBONH, in response to requests from lawmakers who hoped that it would settle the contentious issue that has roiled the Legislature since 2006. Verdonck said yesterday that after meeting with several key representatives he expects the House to endorse the Senate bill without further amendment. “They want this over and done with,” he said, “and they seem happy with the Senate compromise.” The Winnipesauke Family Alliance for Boating Safety (WinnFABs), which has been in the vanguard of the campaign to impose speed limits on the lake,
fought the amended bill in the Senate and is girding to pursue its opposition in the House. SB-27 carried the Senate by the narrowest of margins, 13 to 11, and was initially referred the the House Resources, Recreation and Development Committee, which includes three Republicans from the Lakes Region — Christopher Ahlgren of Wolfeboro, Peter Bolster of Alton and Dave Russell of Gilmanton — all of whom have supported imposing speed limits in the past. But, the committee vacated the bill and it was sent to the Transportation Committee, whose chairman, Sherman Packard of Londonderry, and vice-chairman, John Hikel of Goffstown, have opposed speed limits. Hikel was among the sponsors of SB-27. The Lakes Region is not represented on the Transportation Committee. “We supported the compromise to put this issue to rest,” Verdonck said. “If it passes, we will not come back except to protect it. Not to repeal it.” — Michael Kitch

Dan Hicks and The Hot Licks visit Flying Monkey
PLYMOUTH — Dan Hicks and The Hot Licks bring their self-described “folk jazz” style to The Flying Monkey Movie House & Performance Center at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 14. Since the early 1960s, Hicks has deftly blended elements of Swing, Jazz, Folk, and Country music. The lyrics of his songs range from the sublime to the ridiculous, all presented with his uniquely skewed and inscrutable touch. The band’s latest release, “Tangled Tales,” reflects Hicks’ original off-center point of view with its quirky and playful melodies that complement his trademark lyrics: a medley of complex rhymes and jive vocabulary that sounds as fresh and witty as it did 40 years ago when the Hot Licks shot to national prominence. Tickets to Dan Hicks and The Hot Licks’ performance are $25 for Reserved Orchestra, Tables, and Balcony, and $30 for Gold Circle. Tickets may be purchased online at www.flyingmonkeynh.com or by calling the box office at 536-2551. Dinner is available from 6 — 7 p.m. at an additional charge. Advanced reservations for the dining section are required.

11 prizes offered in LRGH Auxiliary’s ‘Make Your Home Beautiful’ raffle LACONIA — Ticket holder will have eleven changes to win a home or office makeover from The Home Beautiful in the Lakes Region General Hospital Auxiliary’s 3rd annual “Make Your Home Beautiful” raffle. The grand prize is $5,000; first prize $3,000; second prize $2,000; third prize $1,000; two prize awards of $250 and five awards of $100. Raffle proceeds will be used to purchase high to low safety beds for the LRGH Eldercare unit and Staxi transport wheelchairs used throughout the hospitals. The Hi/Lo beds are designed to assist patients who have difficulty getting in and out of regular hospital beds, and are identified as “high-risk” for falls. The bed is also helpful when transferring a patient with limited mobility from a wheelchair or stretcher. “LRGHealthcare participated in a statewide initiative to reduce patients falls,” said director of Medical Safety & Healthcare Management Gloria Thornington. “Because the Hi/Lo bed is capable of being lowered to seven inches from the floor, the risk of a patient falling and being injured is greatly reduced. The Hi/Lo bed also provides a better ergonoic approach to patient care for staff, and may reduce the risk of injury to staff when transferring a patient to and from the bed.” Raffle tickets sell for $5 each, 3 for $10 or the best value of 10 for $25. They are on sale from now until November 8, 2011 and are available at the LRGH Gift Shop, FRH Gift Shop, The Home Beautiful, Gilford Gift Outlet, Kellerhaus, Lee’s Candy Kitchen at Mill Falls, and The Laconia Antique Center. The LRGH Auxiliary supports the provision of healthcare in the LRGHealthcare community by raising funds to enhance patient care and programs.
Kicking off the 3rd annual “Make Your Home Beautiful” raffle, hosted by the LRGH Auxiliary are (l-r): Home Beautiful owner Bruce Hamel, LRGH Auxiliary Member Barbara Tuttle, LRGHealthcare President and CEO Tom Clairmont, LRGH Auxiliary President Nancy Paterno, South End Media Representative Kurt Muhlfelder, Mix 94.1 Morning Show Hosts Amy Bates and Fred Caruso, LRGHealthcare Philanthropy Director Bill Parkinson and vice president of the Home Beautiful Tom Dubois.

Founded in 1898, the Auxiliary has a long tradition of fulfilling needs for special medical equipment, sup-

Pooch Café LOLA
By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are sensitive to the feelings of others; therefore, people open up around you. What you learn because of this may be surprising or even shocking. You will keep a sacred trust. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Prepare for an upcoming meeting as though you are practicing for a game. Rehearse what you’ll say. Play out different scenarios, and try to guess how the other person will react. Plan your countermove. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You take care to make others feel comfortable around you. When someone new enters your realm, you’ll immediately initiate a connection. Through your example, you’ll teach good manners to an ill-mannered world. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You may start out less confident than you could be. A pep talk in the mirror will be in order. With a little extra attention to your image, you’ll come across better than you thought you could. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your many responsibilities will require you to be outgoing. Your heart remains light, even as you deliver a substantial message. You will smile and laugh your way to a successful outcome. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 7). Your eye-on-the-prize mentality will serve you well. Stay on track, and you will soon accomplish what you set out to do. In June, you’ll win one prize and be ready for a change. A new study, hobby or activity will strike your fancy. Shared adventure bonds you with a sweetie in July. August brings career luck. Aquarius and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 12, 41, 25 and 3.
by Darby Conley
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your agenda may not be so easily sold on its own. But when you piggyback your plan with one that is already positioned to succeed, you’ll have a smash hit on your hands. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The same guidelines that were put in place to keep order and create safety are now stifling your freedom and limiting your joy. Investigate to see whether rules can be broken or bent to suit you. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You have an appropriate command of your space. You send all the right signals so that others come close when you need them to hear and see you and stay far away when you prefer to be alone. CANCER (June 22-July 22). The initial impression someone made years ago is still affecting the way you think of this person today. But something will happen to change all of that. Stay open-minded. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are bright and capable -- a natural choice to lead the group. And yet you may not feel that you want the extra responsibility that comes with the role. You’ll find a way to lead without being the official leader. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll influence those who see you as serious and knowledgeable. To help this image along, move more slowly than everyone else. Your every gesture will seem to have greater importance. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Though you look forward to having downtime when you can recharge your energy, you still have a ways to go. Take short breaks instead of long ones. Distractions abound. Remember what you came to do.

Therapy dog and owner-author present new book at Meredith Public Library
MEREDITH — Local author Holly Raus, accompanied by her therapy dog Ben, the subject of her new children’s book, will give two presentations at the Meredith Public Library on April 12 and 13. A special children’s program is scheduled from 3:30 — 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 12 when Raus and Ben will present their new book “Ben: The Very Best Furry Friend.” In addition to Story Time, the event will include songs and a special dog craft. Copies of the book will be signed by the author — and paw-printed by Ben. On Wednesday, April 13 from 6:30 — 8 p.m., Raus and her golden retriever will present “Therapy Dogs with Holly and Ben.” Discussing the role of therapy dogs and how they differ from service dogs, Raus will share some of the experiences she and Ben have shared from their seven years of volunteer work as a Pet Partners team. After the presentation, Raus will be available for questions and a book signing — and Ben will once again happily provide his paw print “autograph.” Studies have shown that petting an animal can provide health benefits such as lowering blood pressure and creating a feeling of well being. Together, Raus and Ben have visited nursing homes, adult day care centers, a children’s bereavement camp, schools and libraries.
They have given presentations to Boy Scout troops,The Meredith Historical Society and made appearances at an autism seminar and a local wellness fair. The focus of their work has evolved into promoting children’s literacy by their “Tales for Tails” program, targeted to improving reading skills by having children read aloud to Ben. Therapy dog reading programs are becoming more visible throughout the U.S. and have shown results of higher levels of reading fluency and increased number of correct words read per minute. “Tales for Tails” has been a program at the Gilford Public Library since 2006. This volunteer work provided inspiration for Raus to begin a new career as a library assistant. She is currently a staff member at the Meredith Public Library and Ben has accompanied her there as a special guest to her Story Times. “Ben: The Very Best Furry Friend” is available for purchase online at www.Amazon.com, www.barnesandnoble.com, or by contacting the author at email@example.com. At right: Holly Raus, accompanied by her golden retriever therapy dog, will present and sign copies of her new children’s book, “Ben: The Very Best Furry Friend,” at the Meredith Public Library on April 12 and 13.

Meadowbrook U.S. Cellular Pavilion announces venue improvements
GILFORD — The Meadowbrook U.S. Cellular Pavilion has announced several major venue improvements for the 2011 season. Following their most successful season in 2010, the venue is reinvesting in its infrastructure to give fans an even better concert experience. The improvements address several areas that were identified as projects that would most improve the overall experience of a concert at the Meadowbrook U.S. Cellular Pavilion. “We are all about enhancing our customer’s experience,” said RJ Harding, Meadowbrook U.S. Cellular Pavilion president. “We are always thinking about the fan’s perspective on how we can improve the venue. We think the improvements to the bathrooms, lawn signage, and sound system upgrades as well as the introduction of the Laconia Savings Bank Exclusive pre-sale and Samuel Adams Brew-
house are going to be a big hit with our fans.” The Lawn and Upper Reserved seating sections are getting major audio and visual upgrades with the installation of a new 10 foot by 16 foot LED screen and a state-of-the-art audio system. Traditionally lawn seats have a bad rap for being too far away to see and hear the concert very well. However, the Meadowbrook U.S. Cellular Pavilion lawn seats start 200 feet from the stage, the closest of any venue in New England. With the LED screen, it will allow all lawn seats to get an even better view of what is happening on stage and the upgrade from a standard audio system to a line array system will make the acoustics on the lawn noticeably better. The exclusive VIP bathrooms are under construction and will be ready for the 2011 season. Inner Circle VIP members receive special pre-sales, discounts on VIP parking, sneak peek announcements, and now get
the perk of an exclusive top-of-the-line restroom facility with live video displays of the action on stage to avoid missing a minute of any show. The building formally known as the Center Stage Café is being remodeled into the Samuel Adams Brewhouse. This new concept will feature a full bar with many different Samuel Adams brews on tap and a mouthwatering pub menu. The Samuel Adams Brewhouse is open to all ticket holders and provides a pub style atmosphere to enhance the concert experience. Certain select nights will also have plated dinner service. The Meadowbrook U.S. Cellular Pavilion is partnering with Laconia Savings Bank to offer an exclusive pre-sale throughout the season. Cardholders may use their LSB credit or debit cards and purchase premium seats before the general public. More details are available at www.laconiasavings.com.

ers through proven and adaptable Disney business philosophies. “These are turbulent times for the business community,” said Karmen Gifford, LRCC executive director. “Bringing Disney and its proven business practices to Meredith is one way we’re working to help local organizations grow and prosper.” “This is a convenient way to experience Disney Institute programs in local business communities,” said Jeff James, vice president for Disney Institute. “Our programs teach easily-adaptable strategies and best practices that have been part of our company for more than 80 years.” The program will introduce participants to five core Disney business principles: Leadership Excel-
lence; People Management; Quality Service; Brand Loyalty; and Inspiring Creativity. “What makes the Disney learning experience so different and meaningful is that we don’t simply teach theory,” said James. “We give participants an ‘insider’s look’ at business philosophies that have helped Disney consistently rank as one of the world’s most admired companies and brands. Engaging content presented in an entertaining fashion provides participants with tools that can literally transform their organizations.” Program registration is $399 per person and includes all course materials.

Uno’s Restaurant to host fundraiser for Gilford High School Performing Arts April 10
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, April 7, 2011— Page 21
Dear Annie: I’ve been close friends with “Lucy” since high school. In the past few years, I’ve noticed that she is imitating everything I do, and I mean everything. I recently dyed my hair red, and she did the same, even using the same stylist. She bought the same carpet, painted her house the same color as ours and last year acquired the same breed of dog. She buys her grandkids the same gifts we buy ours. I just purchased a jacket, and when Lucy saw it, she bought the same one and flipped out because she could not get it in the same color. I know imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but this is scary. It’s as if Lucy is trying to live my life. Last week, I bought a set of new sheets. Lucy stopped by as I was making the bed and asked her usual questions -- where did I buy them, how much did they cost, etc. But then she asked what my husband was like in bed. She confided that her sex life is not so good and once thought her husband was having an affair. I was flabbergasted and finally said it was personal and nobody’s business, and I refuse to discuss my sex life with anyone. Lucy became agitated, said I should be willing to answer her question since we’re good friends and then left in a big huff. I haven’t seen her since, although she lives down the block. Should I have answered her? I think I need to end the friendship, but how? -- Feeling Uneasy Dear Uneasy: No one needs to answer such personal questions. Imitation is usually a sign of insecurity in one’s own taste. It often helps to offer to shop with the person and help them develop their own style. Lucy, however, seems to be looking for more than style. She wants a life upgrade, and she’s chosen yours. We suggest you put gradual limits on the amount of contact you have. Continue to be friendly, but find
a way to be busier. When you go out, alter your schedule so you have less of a chance of running into her. And if she ever asks for help, urge her to seek professional counseling. Dear Annie: I have sent thank-you notes for various gifts throughout my life. No matter what I wrote, at least one person was unhappy with it. One thank-you was followed by a reprimand from an elderly relative, saying I should have written more. Another was fussed over by an aunt who said I wrote too much and it sounded contrived. When I sent a thank-you e-mail, I was chastised because it wasn’t handwritten. I think people should be happy their gift was acknowledged. Most etiquette rules were formed prior to the invention of electronic mail. What is the real difference between an e-mail and a hastily hand-scratched note? -- B.S.C. Dear B.S.C.: Handwritten notes are considered more personal and show greater effort. E-mail thank-you notes are perfectly fine for those who are more casual and don’t mind receiving thanks in this manner. However, unless you are still a child, no one should be chastising you. You have difficult relatives, dear. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Burning Up in Vermont” and laughed out loud when you said, “And now he can take the bus.” Vermont is a very rural state. The likelihood of bus service where this person lives is remote to none. You should have suggested he carpool with someone he works with, although that might be equally difficult. -- B.B. Dear B.B.: We admit we are not familiar with rural Vermont, and it’s possible “Burning” lives in an area where there is no bus service. In which case, we hope carpooling is a feasible alternative.

LACONIA — The deadline to apply for the 9th Annual Susan E. Boultbee Memorial Nursing Scholarship is Friday, April 15. Boultbee was a creative and energetic RN at Lakes Region General Hospital (LRGH) for many years and was full of passion for nursing and school, while also raising three boys. The 2011 scholarship will be for $1,500, and the Boultbee family is looking for individuals who have attributes similar to Sue, as well as a financial need. The award will be presented to a candidate
in good-standing who is eager for a nursing degree. Special consideration will be given to “later-in-life” candidates, as Sue was when she was pursuing her degrees. The award will be presented in May by Sue’s family. Applications are available in the Human Resources offices at LRGH and Franklin Regional Hospital. For more information, contact Ellen Garneau, RN, MS at LRCH at 524-3211 or e-mail egarneau@lrgh. org; or contact Christina Northup at 524-3211 or e-mail email@example.com.
