Ayotte appearance in Tilton is big deal because of gun vote

Both sides of the fierce national debate over gun control in the wake of the slaughter of children and teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. were out in force in front of Winnisquam Regional High School in Tilton on Tuesday afternoon because of a scheduled appearance by U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte of Nashua. The Republican hosted a town hall-style forum in the school’s auditorium that was attended by hundreds. (Daryl Carlson/for The Laconia Daily Sun)

porters outnumbered her detractors among the crowd of some 315 gathered inside the auditorium. Opening an hour-long visit with a PowerPoint presentation, Ayotte framed the major issues facing the Senate, beginning with gun control and the “Protecting Communities and Preserving the Second Amendment Act,” introduced by her fellow Republican

Senators Ted Cruz of Texas and Chuck Grassley of Iowa, which she co-sponsored. She said the bill would enhance the current system of background checks, stiffen penalties for straw purchases and illicit trafficking of firearms, increase resources for prosecuting firearm crimes and enhance the safety and security of schools. see ayOTTe page 10

Geaux Tigers! LHS senior will be off to play tuba in LSU band By adaM drapcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Katherina Beliveau was dead-set on attending the University of Alabama, so she could fulfill her dream of playing in halftime shows for a football team playing in the mighty South-

eastern Conference (SEC). However, her parents insisted that she broaden her search. “My parents were like, you have to apply to more than just ‘Bama,” she said. As a member of the marching band, concert band, jazz band and pep band, as well as

a couple of local community bands, the Laocnia High School senior is far more concerned with what happens during the half-time show than the events that precede or follow. So, she searched YouTube for college marching bands in the SEC, and one performance cut her

search short. “I was so blown away, every section had their choreography, the music was awesome. I said, I don’t know what school this is, but I have to go here.” The performance, as it turned out, was by the marching band see LsU page 8

Holland has a new king

AMSTERDAM (AP) — Millions of Dutch people dressed in orange flocked to celebrations around the Netherlands Tuesday in honor of a once-ina-generation milestone for the country’s ruling House of Orange-Nassau: after a 33-year reign, Queen Beatrix abdicated in favor of her eldest son, WillemAlexander. At 46, King WillemAlexander is the youngest monarch in Europe and the first Dutch king in 123 years, since Willem III died in 1890. Like Beatrix before him, Willem-Alexander has assumed the throne at a time of social strains and economic malaise. Although the Dutch monarchy is largely ceremonial, he immediately staked out a course to preserve its relevance in the 21st century. “I want to establish ties, make connections and exemplify what unites us, the Dutch people,” the freshly minted king said at a nationally televised investiture ceremony in Amsterdam’s 600-yearold New Church, held before the combined houses of Dutch parliament. “As king, I can strengthen the bond of mutual trust between see KING page 7

FDA approves OTC morning after pill for ages 15 up WASHINGTON (AP) — The government is making the morning-after pill available over the counter for women and girls 15 and older — an attempt to find middle ground just days before a court-imposed deadline to lift all age restrictions on the emergency contraceptive. Today, Plan B One-Step is sold behind pharmacy counters, and buyers must prove they’re 17 or older to buy it without a prescription or else see a doctor first. Tuesday’s decision by the Food and Drug Administration lowers the age limit to 15

— and will allow the pill to sit on drugstore shelves next to condoms and spermicides or other women’s health products. But customers must prove their age at the cash register. Teva Women’s Health, which makes Plan B, said it would begin over-the-counter sales in a few months. The question is whether Tuesday’s action settles a larger court fight. Earlier this month, U.S. District Judge Edward Korman of New York blasted the Obama administration for imposing the age-17

limit, saying it had let election-year politics trump science and was making it hard for women of any age to obtain the emergency contraception in time. He ordered an end to all age restrictions by Monday, for Plan B and its generic versions. The FDA said Tuesday’s decision was independent of the court case and wasn’t intended to address it. Technically, the FDA approved Teva’s application to sell Plan B in this manner. The Justice Department remained mum see PILL page 10

TUPELO, Miss. (AP) — Ricin was found in the former martial arts studio of the man suspected of sending poison letters to President Barack Obama and other public officials, and was also discovered on a dust mask and other items he threw in the trash, federal prosecutors said in a court document made public Tuesday. The affidavit says an FBI surveillance team saw James Everett Dutschke remove several items from the studio in Tupelo,

Miss., on April 22 and dump them in a trash bin about 100 yards down the street. The items included a dust mask that later tested positive for ricin, the affidavit said. Traces of ricin also were found in the studio and Dutschke used the Internet to buy castor beans, from which ricin is derived, the affidavit said. Annette Dobbs, who owns the small shopping center where the studio was located, said authorities padlocked the door to it

sometime the search. She said Tuesday that FBI agents haven’t told her anything, including whether the building poses a health threat. Inside the studio is one large room with a smaller reception area and a concrete floor. Police tape covered the front and the small back door. Dutschke, 41, was arrested Saturday by FBI agents at his home in Tupelo, and is being held without bond pending a prelimsee RICIN page 12

CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire legislators crafting the state’s fourth medical marijuana proposal in six years said Monday they are disappointed that Gov. Maggie Hassan has asked them to strike a provision allowing patients to grow the

plants at home. Home cultivation is crucial to ensuring access for patients in rural areas and for those who can’t afford to buy the drug from dispensaries, said the bill’s House sponsor, Rep. Donna Schlachman, an Exeter Demo-

crat. Plus, many patients with terminal conditions who have waited years for medical marijuana don’t have the 18 months to two years it will take for dispensaries to open, she added. see MED-POT page 3

Markey & Gomez win 18-year-old in custody after Concord High incident primary races for Kerry’s Mass. U.S. Senate seat CONCORD (AP) — Police have taken an 18-yearold into custody at Concord High School after responding to a report of a student being threatened with a weapon. Authorities say they charged him with criminal

BOSTON (AP) — Democratic U.S. Rep. Edward Markey and Republican former Navy SEAL Gabriel Gomez won their party primaries on Tuesday, setting up a race between a 36-year veteran of Washington politics and a political newcomer for the U.S. Senate seat formerly held by John Kerry. Markey, of Malden, defeated fellow U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, of South Boston, in the Democratic primary while Gomez, a Cohasset businessman, bested former U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan and state Rep. Daniel Winslow in the GOP primary, according to unofficial returns. The special election is scheduled for June 25. The race to fill the seat Kerry left to become U.S. secretary of state has been overshadowed by the deadly Boston Marathon bombing, and the candidates had to temporarily suspend their campaigns. Even before the April 15 bombing, the campaign had failed to capture the attention of voters compared with the 2010 special election following the death of longtime Democratic Sen. Edward Kennedy. Former Republican Sen. Scott Brown won the seat, surprising Democrats, but was ousted last year in another high-profile race by Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren. Markey, 66, led all the other candidates in fundraising and had won the backing early on of Kerry and a large segment of the Democratic establishment, compared to the 58-year-old Lynch, a conservative, self-described “prolife” Democrat and former ironworker from South Boston who was dogged in part by his decision to vote against President Barack Obama’s 2010 health care law. Gomez quickly seized on the contrast between the veteran Markey and his own political newcomer status. He noted that in 1976, when Markey was first elected to Congress, Gerald Ford was president, the Internet had not been invented, eight-track recordings were popular and he was playing Little League baseball.

threatening with a dangerous weapon after the incident Tuesday night. No one was injured. Neighbors and students say police arrived at the school shortly before 8 p.m. Some streets around the school were blocked off for more than an hour.

Dover man saves Maine girl being attacked by dogs LEBANON, Maine (AP) — A New Hampshire man credited with saving the life of a 12-year-old Maine girl being mauled by her family’s pit bulls says the two dogs were trying to “tear the girl apart.” Adam Horr, of Dover, N.H., was visiting friends in Lebanon on Saturday when he heard screams. He knew immediately it was “something bad,” so he sprinted 75 yards through some woods that separate the properties.

The 41-year-old Horr tells The Portland Press Herald ( ) he didn’t have time to be scared. He started punching and kicking the dogs, who turned on him. Police say the dogs jumped a fence while Angel Sargent played with her sister and a friend. She was treated for bites on her neck, legs and shoulder. Her mother says she is doing well.

MED-POT from page 2 Sen. John Reagan, a Deerfield Republican and longtime backer of medical marijuana, said he was frustrated by the move and it’s likely the provision will be taken out of the bill to avoid a veto by Hassan. He said all that proponents of home growth can do is try again in the future. At a recent hearing on the bill, Rep. Ted Wright, a Moultonborough Republican, said he hoped to be able to grow plants at home for his wife, who is battling cancer. Marijuana helped her maintain a healthy weight during a difficult round of drug trials, and he said medical bills would make it tough to afford the roughly $400 a month it would cost to purchase pot from a dispensary. The governor “shares the concerns of law enforcement about the state’s ability to effectively regulate a home-grow option,” spokesman Marc Goldberg said

in a statement. Hassan voted for a medical marijuana bill in 2009 that included a home-grow option. Reagan said previous attempts to legalize medical marijuana in New Hampshire were met with efforts by law enforcement to prevent or delay their passage. “I don’t know why governors allow law enforcement to dictate the laws we create when their job is to enforce them,” Reagan said. Richard Crate of the New Hampshire Police Chiefs Association said Monday that once his organization realized there were enough votes in the Senate to pass a medical marijuana proposal, the group brought a list of concerns to the governor. Among those concerns was home cultivation, which Crate said he believes would lead to medical marijuana being diverted and sold illegally. The proposal is being rewritten in a Senate committee.

Legal pots means more $$$ for states & less for gangs The good things that should happen after marijuana is legalized are happening in Colorado. In November, voters in Colorado — and Washington state — legalized pot for recreational use. (Many states allow medical use of marijuana.) What are the good things? For starters, money, money, money for the state coffers. As of last week, lawmakers in Denver were still tussling over how heavily to tax marijuana sales. A leading plan centers on excise and sales taxes totaling 30 percent. The tax can’t go so high that it encourages a black market. The first $40 million collected from the excise tax would go to schools. And revenues from a 15 percent sales tax on pot plus the 2.9 percent ordinary state sales tax would be sent to local governments and cover the cost of enforcing the new marijuana regulations. Meanwhile, the state would save money it now spends on arresting, prosecuting and jailing citizens caught smoking the stuff. As one small example, Washington state no longer trains new police dogs to sniff out marijuana. Some lawmakers say they want “safeguards” in place to ensure that marijuana doesn’t end up in the hands of kids, criminals and cartels — like it’s not happening already. Speaking of which, turning pot producers and vendors into legitimate businesses is perhaps the most welcome outcome of marijuana legalization. As Elliott Klug, head of Pink House Blooms, a $3-million-ayear marijuana business in Denver, told The Wall Street Journal: “We were the bad guys. Now we are still the bad guys, but we pay taxes.” What he means is that while the new marijuana operations can operate in the open, they are not being treated as leniently as other farming ventures. The state is regulating them with a heavy hand, to the point of doing background checks on the growers’ tattoos. As more people pile into marijuana merchandizing, prices fall. (Pot prices in Denver are already down a third from their levels in 2011.) Taking the

big money out of a formerly illegal but popular product dismantles the criminal cartels’ business model. That means less violence on the streets, less smuggling at the Mexican border. It means ordinary citizens can hike in national forests without fear of tripping upon some gang-run marijuana operation. Unfortunately, while Colorado and Washington state are doing their bit to end the insanity, the federal government has not. Under federal law, marijuana remains an illegal substance. This means that legitimate pot growers can’t borrow money. (Banks will not lend to businesses the feds do not consider legal.) If a grower develops an especially high-quality plant, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office will not register it. Marijuana has been a $1.3 billiona-year business in this country, a business largely closed to the lawabiding. And there’s a collateral lost opportunity caused by our crazy prohibition on hemp farming. Hemp is an industrial product with many uses. Though it lacks the psychoactive properties of marijuana, hemp is a cousin of marijuana bearing some family resemblance. That’s the only reason American farmers are banned from growing it. Across the northern border in Canada, hemp waves on thousands of acres. Sadly, the Obama administration has lacked the courage to boldly move forward on changing the national marijuana laws. Last winter, President Obama took the baby step of saying the administration wouldn’t spend much time on recreational users. The U.S. Department of Justice is currently scratching its head over what to do about Colorado and Washington state. Eventually, the feds will come around, but how much money must be wasted on prosecution and how much tax revenues lost before that happens? (A member of the Providence Journal editorial board, Froma Harrop writes a nationally syndicated column from that city.)

All that phony talk of liberties meaningless because he’s Muslim To the editor, I was humored by the folks on the right who consider Senator Ayotte an actual representative of the people. Evidently, according to her, she is fighting out of state interests in the gun control battle. Out of state? Like energy corporations and gun nut groups? Marland’s cartoon in the Monitor was simply brilliant because she is a lapdog of the NRA just as she is lapdog of corporate lobbies. She ignored 89 percent of the people when she voted against expanded background checks. Ayotte ought to go. Her latest legal gymnastic stunt is joining Peter King, Lindsay Graham

McCain, in pushing for the Boston bomber to be considered an “enemy combatant”. Really? It was only two months ago and the far right was apoplectic about the presidential use of drones. All of the tea party and pseudo-constitutionalists were crying about how every American citizen has to be given their unabridged constitutional rights. Now, of course, because the bomber is a Muslim, all that phony talk of liberties is meaningless. Did anyone notice that John McCain wants to put troops on the ground in Syria? Are we really that stupid? He certainly is. James Veverka

LETTERS Participate in & enjoy Town Meeting; it’s an inherited treasure To the editor, SB-2 advocate Bill Whalen’s botherment with turnout for Town Meeting bothers me. The “approximately 150 Sanbornton residents who attend town meeting” deserve applause. SB-2 would replace that large number with darned few, keeping track of news reports on such. SB-2’s process can include discussion and altering of warrant articles at a required budget hearing (a meeting!), but no final decision-making. SB-2’s law, as written (40:13), veritably squirms with “may nots” about that warrant-article altering, throwing doubt on what’s behind SB-2’s establishment as an alternative to Town Meeting. Coping with SB-2 at long last a voter is alone in a booth with all the articles on her ballot. No one with whom to discuss. I see potential for exasperated, thrown-up hands and a straight line of “no” voting. Mr. Whalen went last year to Sanbornton’s Town Meeting, using the

microphone often. Bravo! People participate in our democratic process, where we are citizen legislators, making time for our town’s well-being by coming to Town Meeting, speaking, listening, and there together deciding. Our town’s budget is important; our money spent perpetuates our town. (Everything shouldn’t get a “no.”) This is where Mr. Whalen’s insistence on private voting booth time doesn’t convince. He thinks of Sanbornton only in terms of this year and his taxes. Just vote no and get it over with. He doesn’t care about a long-term Sanbornton that will succeed him beyond his time here. Yet he came to our town, liking it, because those preceding him did care. Before May 14’s voting share this letter with others, and bring it to May 15 Town Meeting too. Vote no on Question #1, and protect Sanbornton Town Meeting — then participate, even enjoy it. Town Meeting is our inherited treasure. Lynn Rudmin Chong Sanbornton

Good old covered dish supper is best way to get people together To the editor, Covered Dish Suppers are popular with churches, clubs, and other friendly organizations. Seems that I’ve enjoyed them at various churches for at least 74 years. On the way to last Sunday’s excellent dinner at the Gilford Community Church, Joan and I discussed the problem with getting some older or disabled people to those, and their perception that one must bring some food. Not so! There is always more than twice the food that can be eaten! And always people willing to drive to bring those who might have transportation problems. After waiting for about 25 minutes, and seeing the tremendous task ahead of consuming such a big variety of great food, I suggested to Pastor Michael Graham that getting started might be in order. His nice reply was it wasn’t up to him, and, oh “I hope

you don’t plan to write an editorial on this”. Hadn’t crossed my mind till then. But thinking of the many good older friends who had not gotten there to help us with the excess food, it seemed Michael had a good suggestion with that. So, here it is, mostly finished with the introduction. If you belong to a church, fraternal order, club of any kind, remember that the good old Covered Dish Suppers were the best way to get people together for pure fun and idea exchanges. Promote them, but when doing so, be sure to remind the seniors, and all, that they are welcome whether they bring food or not: their appetite and company are most important, and they can make someone happier by letting them bring you to and from the supper! Just ENJOY! Jack Stephenson Gilford

Free on-site childcare is available. Anyone who lives or works in the Lakes Region is welcome to participate and contribute their thoughts about how to make the Lakes Region the best place to live, learn, work, and play for everyone. This event is one of a series of listening sessions being held across the state this spring as part of the Granite State Future project, which will result in the creation of regional master plans for the areas served by NH’s nine regional planning commissions. You can register for the event, download the discussion guide that will be used that evening, and learn more about the Granite State Future project at event/granite-state-future . Lakes Region Listens started in 2010 as an initiative of the Lakes Region United Way, which sought to stimulate civic engagement on local issues. The Lakes Region Listens Steering Committee is comprised of people who live or work in the Lakes Region. We commit our time to creating opportunities for the general public to have a voice in matters of civic importance. We choose to do this work because we think it is important. Since mid-2011, we have worked with the Winnisquam Regional School District, the City of Laconia, the Financial Stability Partnership, the Laconia Health & Wellness Academy, Lakes Region Planning Commission, and the NH Office of Energy and Planning to facilitate local community conversations on a wide range of topics. For more information on the work

that Lakes Region Listens has done, you can visit our webpage: http://www. The conversations that we facilitate are different from public hearings in that they allow people to sit down around a table, learn about each other, and explain their experiences and individual points of view. Public hearings are an important part of our democratic process and they always will be. The conversations that we facilitate further enrich the democratic process by allowing people to share their knowledge and experience at a more detailed level. This allows nuances to be expressed and, sometimes, helps people find common ground on issues that may be polarizing their community. We feel strongly that this kind of dialogue is important to have here in the Lakes Region, and we are honored to serve in this capacity.

It is always a pleasure to work with people in the community that envision growth, access to local foods and innovation as a part of their leadership goals. I would also like to thank Alex Ray and The Common Man for help with some of the operational expenses. Northway Bank also helped with some of the advertising expenses.

I was fortunate to have the generous support of AutoServ of Tilton and all their help with the location and marketing. With the dedicated participation of more than 44 local farmers and food producers, the market brought in about 1,700 shoppers every weekend from January through March, on both Saturdays and Sundays. Shoppers eagerly awaited the arrival of the weekend so they could purchase their fill of wholesome, local food and fresh produce. Our Facebook community of 867 fans, has become a hub of local food lovers, and was always a-buzz with recipe sharing and positive feedback about the market; it was always great to see the interactions and heartfelt enthusiasm of everyone. My ongoing partnership with AutoServ of Tilton has been such a rewarding collaboration. I appreciate all the support from the Town of Tilton and the Tilton Police Department.

To the editor, A remarkably consistent picture is emerging from the Groton Wind Farm survey online, combine that with a growing number of residents, pro-wind proponents and visitors that are speaking out against future wind developments. They’re showing that the public’s attitude toward additional wind developments in the region are strongly leaning in the oppositions corner. Their Groton message, their findings and their photos are running rampant through out the foothills of Grafton County. This community is very upset and it is taking action. Besides sharing personal experiences, people are attending all local and state meetings, they’re educating themselves and they’re lending a helping hand to neighbors who feel helpless with these new proposals. Those living near proposed developments are happy to have such strong community support and backing. However, this stands in marked contrast with the impression conveyed from their state politicians, which typically portrays our massive grassroots opposition campaign in a negative light. And the press, it seems, is ignoring the Lakes Region Wind Farm topic all together. Giving disproportionate emphasis to the silent minority while ignoring the vocal majority that opposes additional wind development is currently a hot topic in our region. We voted to oppose future projects around the lake, we have organized and we will vote again. Our opinions have been formed by broken promises at the Groton Wind Farm, they’ve been formed by attending local/state meetings and by how developers have been conducting

business. Residents feel that developers are now buying their way into the community via: institutions, companies and residents alike. In other words their drumming up support and shutting up opposition threats to their plans. The preservation of valued landscapes motivates many around here. Much of the noisy debate over wind farms comes down to the location, site selection and scale are crucial, and these cumulative impacts must be considered. Another opposition to wind development is a reaction to the unseemly rush to development (also known as a gold-rush effect) — which I felt made a strong case for a moratorium. Unfortunately, Concord politicians did not. This green energy business model represents a new kind of divide for our community — a divide on peoples voting rights. Why didn’t our votes count. Have we lost our right to vote? Have we lost our voice? Do we have no right to be concerned? Do our kings and queens in Concord know what’s best for us? For them? Or is it simply about a new tax revenue stream? It’s a fact: public attitude toward existing and proposed wind developments around the Newfound Lake are: (a) that local people become less favorable towards wind farms after construction; (b) that the degree of acceptance decreases with proximity to them; and (c) that safety issues are a real concern for all in our community -— relating to emergency training, year-round access, boater safety, watershed concerns, wildlife issues and deforestation concerns.

To the editor, Those who are promoting the assignment of women to combat units are (in my opinion); basing that decision on one lie after another. The biggest lie is that success in combat leads to promotion. In WW II Generals Eisenhower, Bradley, Marshall, had never served in combat, not even in the “Great War” (WW I) when they were recently commissioned West Point Grads (and Military Institute Grads; whom the Army desperately needed in France). Due to serving in the rear areas in the U.S., they never were shipped to France. Yet, in WW II, they were “over” General Patton, who had served in combat in WW I, where he was wounded. In my 30 years of Army experience, the way to “promotion and pay” is to avoid any and all combat duty, or

even field duty; because the “promotions and pay” positions, normally go to those whose service was in the rear areas; as illustrated by the duties that Generals Eisenhower, Bradley and Marshall, had had. Another lie is that combat is being shot at. No, this also is a false statement, because being shot at, or shot up, or shot down; is not “Combat”. “Combat” is carrying the war to the enemy and winning the close battle. When it comes to women in combat, let us be a little more truthful about what combat is all about. There is more, a great deal more, a lifetime of experiences more; but enough for now.

Air traffic controllers will be back at work but funds for Laconia Airport fence could be in trouble By Gail OBer


LACONIA — The recent move by the U.S. Congress to take Federal Aviation Administration money set aside for Airport Improvements and direct it toward putting air traffic controllers back to work could effect planned safety improvements at the Laconia Municipal Airport. Manager Diane Cooper-Terrill said the application for completion of a wildlife fence around the airport is ready for submission to the FAA but she doesn’t know if the money for the project will still be available. “At this point we just don’t know,” she said, saying she hopes the airport hears something by summer but with sequestration and the FAA budget in a state of flux, she can’t predict anything. Cooper-Terrill said federal airport improvement money is typically allocated according to safety. The purpose of the $700,000 projects that includes a fence is to keep wildlife from straying on to the runway and potentially causing a collision with the aircraft that are landing or taking off. This is part three of the airport improvement project and the fence will be specifically designed to prevent burrowing animals from tunneling under the barrier. She said burrowing animals like rabbits, moles and mice are ofter preyed upon by larger animals like bobcats and coyotes. She also said Canadian Geese, turkey and ducks are a significant problem but not one that can be addressed by a fence. A report completed last year indicated “aggressive harassment” like pyrotechnics, propane cannons, and electronic scarecrows can be utilized to reduce birds in the area. The project will be largely funded by the FAA through and the state airport improvement fund.

Man charged with violating bail terms by possessing pot GILFORD — A Laconia man was charged Monday night with possession of marijuana after police stopped the car in which he was a passenger. Anthony L.C. White, 27, of 306 Lakeside Ave. was also charged with breach of bail. Sgt. Prosecutor Eric Bredbury said White was charged by Gilford Police earlier this month for resisting arrest and one of the conditions of his being free on bail was to not have any drugs in his possession. Bredbury said a patrol officer stopped the car that was driven by Stephanie Court, 21, of 293 Mechanic St. Apt. 1, Laconia when he noticed her speeding on Lake Shore Road near the Laconia Bypass. Court was charged with one count of driving while

intoxicated, a violation level offense for possession of controlled drugs and driving after her license was suspended or revoked. White was held overnight without bail because of the violation of his bail conditions. He appeared by video in the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division yesterday morning and was released on $1,500 personal recognizance bail. Bredbury explained that anyone who is arrested on who is free on bail must appear before a judge before he or she can be released. His resisting arrest trial is scheduled for May 16 and the trial for the marijuana possession is scheduled for June 3. — Gail Ober

Katharina Beliveau, a senior at Laconia High School, will be attending Louisiana State University in the fall, a school she chose specifically so she could play in its marching band. (Laconia Daily Sun photo/ Adam Drapcho)

LSU from page one for Louisiana State University — “The Golden Band From Tiger Land”. “Ever since then, I’ve been focused on LSU,” she said. And it helped that LSU offers a journalism program, which is Beliveau’s chosen major field of study. Music is something that Beliveau has always “tinkered with,” she said, but only recently did she start taking the pursuit seriously. Though now a Laconian, Beliveau spent her first years in Mannheim, Germany, the product of a native German mother and an American father stationed abroad while serving in the U.S. armed forces. In 2006, her family moved to Laconia. Beliveau speaks German fluently and has dual citizenship. Though she’s only been in Laconia for about seven years, she’s made the most of that time. “I don’t like sitting around and doing nothing. I just keep myself busy.” At a local nursing home, she’s volunteered 2,500 hours. She’s worked at the ice cream stand that was operated in the Laconia Antique Center. She performs in dramatic productions at the high school, recently playing the female lead role in “Oliver”. This summer, she’ll spend her time washing boats at Channel Marine and selling merchandise at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion at Meadowbrook. Someone who keeps herself informed of world events, Beliveau occasionally sketches political cartoons, a couple of which have been published on The Daily Sun’s letters to the editor page. Yet, amid all the above activities, and her schoolwork, Beliveau also found the time to teach herself to play two instruments, in order to be a part of the LHS marching band. Her parents first tried to dissuade her, arguing that she didn’t know how to play any instruments featured in marching bands. But, after cajoling and pleading through her freshman year, her parents relented. Over the course of a summer, she solved the puzzle of the clarinet. However, after a year of playing, she decided that the woodwind was to demure for her tastes,

substance. When a graduating senior left a hole in the band that no-one else would fill, Beliveau found the right instrument to fit her voice. In a way, her family has prophesized, at least in jest, her musical destiny. “It was always kind of a joke in my family: ‘Why don’t you just play the tuba?’” One day in the spring of 2011, she brought home the huge brass instrument. The outgoing tubist showed her enough to make a sound on the instrument, and she took it from there. She exclaimed, “It’s the biggest darn thing in the band!” She’s been playing tuba for less than two years but has managed to amass a great deal of experience with her instrument. She, for example, is the first tuba player in the Laconia High School jazz band, which requires her to transpose all of her sheet music to fit her range. That experience paid off a few months ago, when she e-mailed a video audition to the LSU band director. When she called to confirm its receipt, the receptionist told her to wait a week for a reply, instead the director, Roy King, rang her back within 10 minutes to welcome her to band camp this summer, where she’ll work to earn the honor of wearing gold and purple, the Tigers’ colors. “I’m super excited,” she said. Due to her citizenship status, she could have attended a German university for no charge. However, she said, “I’m a band geek,” and universities in Germany don’t have marching bands. She’ll still get a bargain on her tuition, though, because she’s planning to enroll in both the reserve officers’ training corps and the Louisiana National Guard. Although a passion for her, she plans to treat music as a hobby rather than a professional pursuit. Instead, she’s got her eye on journalism. She loves to write — she was twice a state finalist in the Constitution Day Essay Contest — and thinks she’s make a good news anchor. Whatever it is she does, it’s fair to expect she’ll approach it with more of a tuba’s punch rather than a clarinet’s whisper. “I just want to be productive, and do things that people will see,”

Cities & towns in regional trash disposal coop exploring their options as contract nears end By Michael Kitch LACONIA — With the Concord Regional Solid Waste/ Resource Recovery Cooperative (Coop), and Wheelabrator Concord Company, L.P. , operator of the trash incinerator in Penacook, in agreement on a new contract, it remains for the 25 member municipalities — among them Laconia, Belmont, Gilford Gilmanton and Tilton — to determine if it serves their best interests. The current contract, in place since 1989, expires in 2014, prompting member municipalities to explore alternatives in search of lower disposal costs, raising prospects that some municipalities might abandon the coop. Wheelabrator, seeking assurance of sufficient tonnage for its trash-to-energy operation, expects the member municipalities to decide by June 30. Laconia City Manager Scott Myers said yesterday that the coop has provided its members with an analysis of how they would be affected by the terms of the proposed contract and they are pursuing “due diligence” to compare the costs of Wheelabrator’s offer with other options. He said that while the coop has operated very successfully the expiration of the contract provides its members with an opportunity and a responsibility to explore alternatives. Jim Presher, director of the coop, said last week that the offer on the table is an eight-year agreement, running through 2022. It includes a tipping fee of $64 a ton, which is indexed to the rate of inflation, plus an administrative fee of $2. Currently, the tipping fee consists of Wheelabrator’s charge of $51, property taxes of $11, an administrative fee of $6 and costs to operate the ash landfill in Franklin of $20,

amounting to $88, which is offset by a subsidy from the coop’s cash reserves, leaving a total of $66.80. The closure of the ash landfill in 2015 will spare $20 in costs, enabling the Coop to withdraw its subsidy while maintaining the tipping fee around $66. In anticipation that Concord, which has issued a request for proposals for disposing of its trash, might leave the coop, the contract specifies that the remaining members will deliver 60-percent of the current tonnage of approximately 87,000 tons without Concord and 75-percent of the current tonnage with Concord. The primary current alternatives to the coop are landfills in Bethlehem, Berlin and Rochester. Myers said that whether or not they are feasible depends chiefly on transportation costs, which in turn are affected by the size of loads. Laconia, he explained, by trucking 27 tons or more of trash with each load has lower hauling costs than smaller communities that may transport only seven or eight tons at a time. Presher stressed that although the landfills offer competitive tipping fees, the transportation costs must be weighed together with the disposal costs to make sound decisions. Wheelabrator, which through 2019 will receive 15 cents per kilowatt hour for the electricity it generates at Penacook — more than twice the market rate of six or seven cents — has incentives to price competitively. With the sour economy and increased recycling, the tonnage of trash has shrunk. In 2005, the incinerator burned 145,237 tons compared to some 87,000 tons last year, a drop of 40-percent. Competitive pricing is necessary if Wheelabrator is to assure itself of the tonnage its requires.

COUNTY from page one as pharmaceutical, testing and X-rays at 14-percent above costs, the program is projected to generate $400,000 in annual revenue. The convention voted to schedule a public hearing and asked Logue to prepare a formal written proposal. Subsequently, Worsman, along with Rep. Mike Sylvia (R-Belmont), posed a series of questions to the county administrator. Shackett said yesterday that she sent Worsman a spread sheet listing the accounts affected by the program along with a PowerPoint presentation addressing some, but not all, the questions. She said that she did not include answers to all the questions in the PowerPoint because Logue was not available last week, but assured Worsman that “all of the questions will be addressed at the meeting,” adding “that way the public will also be informed. “

Worsman replied that “while we appreciate the bit of information we have received, there is much more that is necessary for the delegation to consider.” She stressed that members of the convention must have an opportunity to review the information prior to the meeting. Commissioner John Thomas (R-Belmont) said that the commission intended to ensure that the process of considering the request for a supplemental appropriation was a public process by explaining the plan and answering the questions with a presentation. He said that throughout the budget process members of convention reached decisions in private meetings. “They have to have a public hearing,” he said. Worsman, he continued, “didn’t want a public process, but they are not going to have a private meeting.” Worsman acknowledged yesterday that while she see next page

AYOTTE from page one Ayotte said she also co-sponsored two bipartisan bills to improve the mental health system by encouraging early intervention and broadening access to treatment while ensuring that mental health records reach the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). A former New Hampshire Attorney General, Ayotte stressed enforcing current law rather than enacting new laws. In particular, she said that Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms has failed to prosecute firearm offenses, noting that in 2010 only 62 of more than 49,000 attempts by felons and fugitives to purchase guns were referred for prosecution and only 13 individuals were convicted. From 2007 to 2011, Ayotte said, just 13 percent of all federal firearms offenses were prosecuted. In a presentation lasting more than half the hour allotted for the meeting, Ayotte addressed sequestration, the national debt, federal budget and health care as as well as proposed taxes on Internet sales and medical devices. In the time remaining she answered questions that New Hampshire State Senator and former Congressman Jeb Bradley of Wolfeboro selected from a batch submitted beforehand. None of the questions bore on gun control. However, under the guise of a question on mental health Peter Harmon raised the issue, saying “the elephant in the room here is gun control.” In reply, Ayotte turned the question back to improving the mental health system and enforcing the current laws. When Harmon pressed her Bradley intervened. “Okay, okay,” he said, meaning enough, enough.

“It’s not okay,” Harmon shot back. “She voted no.” “She answered your question, sir,” Bradley said, then, drawing from his cards, recognized a man with a question about the raid in Bengazi, the issue on which Ayotte has dogged the Obama Administration to fully explain the failure to secure the consulate and the lives of four Americans, including the ambassador to Libya . The man began by thanking Ayotte for her vote against universal background checks, prompting a round of thunderous applause. After Bradley closed the meeting, Connecticut resident Erica Lafferty, the daughter of Dawn Lafferty Hochsprung, the principal of Sandy Hook Elementary School who was shot to death on December 14, rose from her seat to confront Ayotte. Earlier in the day, at a similar meeting in Warren, Lafferty asked Ayotte why she thought the burden on gun dealers of expanding background checks was greater than the burden of her mother being “gunned down in the halls of her elementary school.” In Tilton, Bradley firmly parried Lafferty’s approach. Afterwards Lafferty said that she met with Ayotte’s staff before the vote and with the senator after her vote and drove from her home yesterday to confront her again. “She clearly and publicly betrayed my mom,” she said. “I’ll be here until she, all of them or at least enough of them, do the right thing. It’s a run-around,” she continued. “I’m not going away. They’re going to be sick of me.” Lafferty said her next stop is Houston, Texas, where the 142nd convention of the National Rifle Association opens on Friday.

PILL from page 2 on whether it planned to appeal Korman’s decision, and the White House had no immediate comment. The women’s group that sued over the age limits said Tuesday’s action is not enough, and it will continue the court fight if necessary. Lowering the age limit “may reduce delays for some young women but it does nothing to address the significant barriers that far too many women of all ages will still find if they arrive at the drugstore without identification,” said Nancy Northup, president of the Center for Reproductive Rights. The FDA said the Plan B One-Step will be packaged with a product code that prompts the cashier to verify a customer’s age. Anyone who can’t provide such proof as a driver’s license, birth certificate or passport wouldn’t be allowed to complete the purchase. In most states, driver’s licenses, the most common form of identification, are issued at age 16. “These are daunting and sometimes insurmount-

able hoops women are forced to jump through in timesensitive circumstances, and we will continue our battle in court to remove these arbitrary restrictions on emergency contraception for all women,” Northup said. Other contraceptive contraception advocates called the move promising. “This decision is a step in the right direction for increased access to a product that is a safe and effective method of preventing unintended pregnancies,” said Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash. “It’s also a decision that moves us closer to these critical availability decisions being based on science, not politics.” Social conservatives had opposed any efforts to loosen restrictions on sale of the morning-after pill, arguing that it was important for parents and medical professionals to be involved in such decisions involving young girls. The group Concerned Women for America charged that health officials were putting politics and so-called progsee next page

from preceding page has spoken with members of the convention, both Republicans and Democrats, but insisted “there have been no private or secret meetings.” She said there have been no Republican causcuses since December, when she invited Republican members to meet at the Laconia Public Library. “No decisions have been taken in private,” she vowed. Explaining her decision to cancel the meeting,

Worsman repeated that the county administration failed to provide the convention with the information it requested in sufficient time to prepare themselves to consider the request for a supplemental appropriation. She said that members had a right to seek information and to expect the administration to provide it so they could make informed, responsible decisions. Worsman has not yet rescheduled the meeting.

Sanbornton Historical Society offering CD with 60 of Lib Andrew’s best recipes By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

SANBORNTON — ‘’She was our New Hampshire’s Julia Child,’’ says Milly Shaw of Lib Andrews, who was known to all as the English Muffin Queen of the Lakes Region and who shared generously both the food she created and her enthusiasm for all things dealing with the culinary arts in her weekly Cooking With Lib column which ran from 1978 to 1990 in the Laconia Citizen. Those recipes will soon be available on a CD acording to Shaw, who says that Andrews, who lived at a 200-year-old farmhouse in town from the mid-1970s until her death in 1997, was a fabulous cook whose memory deserves to be honored. She said that Andrews, like Julia Childs, was a well-travelled person who had cooked in many different countries, and loved to share her knowledge of different cuisines with her friends and neighbors. Andrews was featured in Yankee Magazine in June of 1981 as a Great New England Cook and was state cookbook chair for A Taste of New HampshireSecond Helpings. While living in other parts of the world with her husband and “best friend,” Henry, a paleobotanist, Lib shared her cooking and friendship with the Cambridge County Centre in Cambridge, England. She cooked for her husband’s students in Poona, India and Arhus, Denmark, and the Botanical Staff at the National Museum in Stockholm, Sweden. ‘’She was a marvelous cook and was so involved in good causes in town,’’ said Shaw, who said that Andrews for many years cooked at the Sanbornton Historical Society booth at Market Day, making everything from Greek cuisine, coachmen’s special and Chinese egg rolls, to her famous English muffins. ‘’She once said that she proved that people in Sanbornton would eat something besides ham and beans,’’ says Shaw, 83, a long-time member of the Sanbornton Historical Society which she helped found in 1952 and the town’s postmaster for 30 years. She says that she can recall one time when Andrews had cooked up an entire meal as a fundraiser for the Sanbornton Fire Department Relief Association. ‘’I gave her $100 and said it was for all that she’s spent to make the meal. She took the $100 bill and gave it to the fire department,’’ Shaw recalls. Andrews started writing Cooking with Lib in 1978 after Laconia Citizen owner Alma Gallagher Smith suggested that she write a cooking column for the newspaper. She went on to write well over 600 columns over the next 12 years, providing an interesting history of each recipe along with it. Shaw has a complete collection of all of Andrew’s recipes and said that the society wanted to republish them in a large coffee table style book. ‘’But that would have been so large and so heavy that it wasn’t practical,’’ said Shaw, who said that instead the historical society worked with a California comfrom preceding page ress ahead of the health of children as well as women. “It makes no sense that kids need parental permission to take aspirin at school, but they’re free to buy and administer Plan B,” Penny Nance, CEO and president of CWA, said in a statement. Half the nation’s pregnancies every year are unintended, and doctors’ groups say more access to morning-after pills could cut those numbers. The pills contain higher doses of regular contraceptives, and if taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex, can cut the chances of pregnancy by up to 89 percent. But it works best if taken in the first 24 hours. The FDA had been poised to lift all age limits and let Plan B sell over-the-counter in late 2011, when Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, in an unprecedented move, overruled her own scientists. Sebelius said some girls as young as 11 are physically capable of bearing children but shouldn’t be able to buy the pregnancy-preventing pill on their own.

project would never have gotten off the ground. Shaw wrote the following introduction: ‘’Lib’s famous recipes, printed weekly in the Laconia Evening Citizen and the Lakes Region Trader, were used to make foods for Market Day and meals for families in need, and special fund-raiser dinners here and all over the Lakes Region. The history that accompanied each recipe was “tastefully” written by her. We honor your memory, Lib, and your good works.’’ Jack Porter of the Sanbornton Historical said that the society is grateful to family of Lib Andrews and the Laconia Citizen for donation their interests in the recipe collection and to Steele Hill Resorts for their Milly Shaw holds a copy of the June, 1981 Yankee Magazine which featured Lib Andrews of Sanborn- support of the project.

Edwin Encarnacion hit an upperdeck homer in the fifth inning, then connected for a go-ahead home run in the seventh that sent the Toronto Blue Jays over the Red Sox 9-7 on Tuesday night. Lester came in 4-0 in five starts this month but allowed a season-high six runs and six hits in six innings. “It was one of those nights for me from pitch one,” he said. “I just wasn’t able to repeat the ball down in the zone, and that’s big. Curveballs just kind of rolled in there and I didn’t have a very effective changeup.” Lester had not given up so many runs since the Blue Jays scored 11 times in four innings against him last July 22 at Toronto. “They’ve got a quick-strike offense and they swung the bats very well tonight,” Red Sox manager John Far-

rell said of the Blue Jays. “They didn’t miss pitches when they got them on the plate.” Toronto ended a four-game losing streak and avoided the first 18-loss April in club history. “We showed a lot of guts today, a lot of heart,” Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. David Ortiz homered and drove in four runs for Boston, which had won five in a row and was trying for its first 19-win April. Ortiz is batting .500 with 15 RBIs in nine games since coming off the disabled list. “He’s just done an outstanding job for us,” Farrell said. Mike Carp and Jonny Gomes also connected for the Red Sox, who head into May with the best record in the majors for the 11th time in team history. Encarnacion’s pair of two-run shots marked the 10th multihomer game of his career and second this season. He has nine home runs this year.

BELMONT — The Town Clerk swore in Sgt. Adam Hawkins this week in a brief ceremony at the Belmont Police Department. Hawkins, who is in charge of the Operations Division of the department and is in charge of all the uniformed patrol, is now the third in command. He grew up in the Lakes Region and graduated from Gilford High School in 2000. He graduated with an Associates Degree in Business Management from the University of New Hampshire and is currently completing his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Studies

He has coached Belmont High and Middle School basketball, works with the Special Olympics and the Belmont Elementary School Reading Program.

He is a member of the Belknap County Regional Special Operations Group.

FIRE from page one from deep-sea fishing with some of his friends and had some fresh haddock to cook. “He was frying it in his grandmother’s old fry pan when the whole thing flamed over,” she said. She said he hollered, “Oh my God, Oh my God. Call 9-1-1” and she and her two-year-old daughter ran from the house. She said she gave him a fire extinguisher that he used and it suppressed the fire but only for a second. “We just ran outside,” she said. She said her boyfriend, David, got a burn on his forehead and suffered some smoke inhalation. Jennifer also said the family uses the garage door as its primary entrance and the front and back doors are locked all of the time. She said the downstairs is finished and has a family room while the door to the back of the house leads to a three-season porch that the family hadn’t opened for the season. “It’s Laconia. I keep my doors locked,”she said, explaining why she couldn’t produce a key to let the Fire Department into the rear door. “I didn’t know where the keys were,” she said, adding that she was so terrified that she barely knew where her cell phone was.

She said she was very grateful for the quick actions of the Fire Department that saved the bulk of the rented home and many of her belongings, including those that belong to her two-year-old and her 16-year-old. She said the family has limited renters’ insurance and the insurance company is paying for them to stay in a hotel temporarily. Jennifer also wanted to offer some special thanks some of her neighbors who went the extra mile to see that the family got the immediate help they needed. She said Anthony Paraspolo and Tom Tardif went to Home Depot at 9 p.m. and Tardiff, a former mayor, spent $200 on plywood so the house could be secured. She said Chuck Clairmont and his girlfriend stayed up until midnight nailing the boards to the windows and that Erica Smith stayed with her the entire time. “I just don’t know what I would have done without my neighbors,” she said. The said the most important thing is that they’re alive and that no one was seriously injured in the fire or fighting it. She said she has a wonderful job and a wonderful boss who has been very supportive.

Hawkins promoted to sergeant at BPD

‘It’s a Grand Old Flag’ for Gilford Historical Society GILFORD — The Gilford Historical Society will sponsor a program entitled “It’s A Grand Old Flag” on Monday, May 6 at 7 p.m. at the Meetinghouse. This is a free program, and is open to the public. From the early days of our country, flags have been a symbol, a rallying point, and a source of pride and patriotism. This program presents a history of the evolution of the United States Flag. From Betsy Ross and before, to the present, the flag has been a story of our heritage. It is a story of our growth from the 13 original colonies to the addition of Hawaii.


The story is presented by Walt and Shirley Stockwell of Gilford. Walt is a long term vexillophile (lover of flags), and has over 100 of them in his collection. This presentation typically uses 20 or more of these full size replicas to demonstrate this history. It is also a colorful and entertaining time line. “It’s A Grand Old Flag” is a 45 minute presentation, followed by a question and answer period. The Gilford Meetinghouse is located in Gilford Village, at 24 Belknap Mountain Road. For further information, contact Karin at 387-8433.

Simple Steps for Renewing Lawns BY MELINDA MYERS The extreme heat and drought of 2012 was hard on lawns and gardens. “Many gardeners are facing a blank slate of bare soil, masses of dead patches that were once lawn or a bit of grass interspersed in a sea of weeds,” says gardening expert Melinda Myers. Myers recommends following these steps to improve lawns this season. Start this spring to renovate or improve your weather-worn lawn. Remember that water is critical to get newly seeded and sodded lawns to survive. So be prepared to help nature along with the recovery effort. Evaluate the damage. Then use the check

list below to find the best course of action to aid the ailing lawn. If the lawn is more than 60 percent weeds or bare soil, it’s probably time to start over. Use this opportunity to create a great foundation for growing a healthy lawn. Kill off the existing vegetation, add several inches of organic matter such as compost or peat moss and a low nitrogen slow release fertilizer into the top 6 to 8 inches of soil, and rake smooth. Select more drought tolerant grasses like rhizomatous (turf-type) tall fescues, buffalo grass, and Habiturf® native lawn mix. Make sure the grass is suited to the climate and plant according to the label. Then sow the seeds, lightly rake and mulch or lay sod. Water often enough to keep the soil moist until the seeds sprout

or the sod roots into the soil below. Then water thoroughly when the top few inches of soil are crumbly, but slightly moist to encourage deep roots. Fertilize new, existing and stressed lawns with a low nitrogen slow release fertilizer like Milor ganite. It won’t harm stressed lawns, young seedlings or newly laid sod. It will encourage slow steady growth. Southern lawns can be fertilized in April and again in early June. In the north fertilize around Memorial Day. And if 2013 turns into another hot dry summer, it won’t burn the lawn. If the lawn is more than 60 percent weeds or bare soil, it’s probably time to start over. Use this opportunity to create a great see SIMPLE STEPS page 17

SIMPLE STEPS from page 15 foundation for growing a healthy lawn. Kill off the existing vegetation, add several inches of organic matter such as compost or peat moss and a low nitrogen slow release fertilizer into the top 6 to 8 inches of soil, and rake smooth. Mow high to encourage deeply rooted grass that is more drought tolerant and pest resistant. And mow often, removing only a third of the total height. Be sure to leave these short clippings on the lawn. They return moisture, nutrients, and organic matter to the soil. Repair small dead and bare patches as needed. Use a lawn patch kit, grass seed and mulch. For small spots, loosen the soil surface, sprinkle grass seed and lightly rake. Or mix a handful of grass seed in a bucket of topsoil. Sprinkle the mix over the soil surface. Do a bit more soil preparation when renovating larger dead areas in the lawn. Remove or kill any weeds that have filled in these areas. Till two inches of compost, peat moss or other organic matter into the top six inches of soil. Sow seed, rake and mulch or lay sod.

Scott Haskins (603) 304-9111

Core aerate lawns that have more than one half an inch of thatch, those growing in compacted soils, or before overseeding. By removing plugs of soil you break through the thatch and create channels for water and fertilizer to reach the grass roots. Spot treat weeds on lawns that need minimal repair. Wait at least until fall to treat new and overseeded lawns. Spot treating minimizes the use of chemicals and reduces the stress on already stressed lawns. As always read and follow label directions carefully. Proper maintenance and a bit of cooperation from nature will help transform a lawn from an eyesore to an asset in the landscape.

Pitman’s Freight Room hosting Mr. Nick & the Dirty Tricks Friday night

LACONIA — Mr. Nick & the Dirty Tricks will perform Friday, May 3 at 8 p.m. at Pitman’s Freight Room. The group unites veteran musicians Nick David (a.k.a. Mr. Nick), “Lonely” Gus Carlson, Teddy B. (Bukowski) and Rick Rousseau for one of the region’s most formidable live outfits in any genre. But their hearts belong to blues. They play elegant, stomping and swinging classics like Little Walter’s “Mellow Down Easy,” Howlin’ Wolf’s “300 Pounds of Joy” and Wynonie Harris’ “Good Morning Judge.” Their bag of originals is a mix of rhumbas, jump blues, and boogies they’re developing for a debut album. “This band is a killer outfit,” says David. And that’s the truth. Everything comes together when they play: their deep mutual understanding and knowledge of blues, their originality and depth as players, and the band’s ability to put on a great show that brings people to their feet. Admission is $12, doors open at 7:30 p.m. and Pitman’s is a BYOB venue.

‘Seats for Success’ represents final push of Winnipesaukee Playhouse Building Project MEREDITH — Thanks to broad community support, the Lakes Region will soon have a new one-ofa-kind performing arts campus. The Winnipesuakee Playhouse is putting finishing touches on its state-of-the-art new theatre building on the site of the former Annalee Doll campus in Meredith. Performances will begin in the 200 seat venue in June. Purchase and installation of the theatre seats still remains to be accomplished before the season can open. The Playhouse’s Board of Trustees recently announced a new dimension to the Capital Campaign – Seats for Success – allowing members of the public the opportunity to sponsor a seat in the new theatre. Sponsored seats will have the name of the donor or a loved one’s name engraved for posterity, demonstrating their support. Artistic Director Neil Pankhurst says, “thanks to the dedication and hard work of our fantastic project managers at Bonnette, Page and Stone, the project is being completed on-time and on-budget. Not only that, it looks absolute fantastic and we cannot wait to begin welcoming the public. Final touches including painting and finish woodwork are happening now. We are looking forward to installing the seats. The building is coming alive.” Fund Development Chairperson Anita Springer adds, “we could not have achieved this building project without the support of so many in the community. We are particularly pleased that the Winnipesaukee Playhouse will be completing this major building project without any debt on our balance sheet. From the local businesses who donated to our campaign through the CDFA tax credits to the many individuals who contributed to ensure the success of this project, we have found wonderful support in this community for a new home for award-winning

plays and excellent arts education programs. We are grateful for the number of people in this area who recognize the importance of the new theatre project and are joining in to help.” As the Capital Campaign heads towards a grand finale at the end of this summer, each new $1,000 donation to help outfit the theatre with seats will recognize the donor by engraving their name on a seat in one of New Hampshire’s finest new theatres. Contributions of any size from now to the close of the campaign on Labor Day will be matched by each of two generous supporters. So for each new $1,000 donated, The Winnipesaukee Playhouse will receive $3,000 towards installing the seats and completing a successful Capital Campaign for the building of the new theatre in Meredith.

Jacks small, sturdy, very

handsome albeit he ambulates on rather short legs, travelled to New Hampshire by way of Alabama. Now he looks for a cool, granite state home.

Jacks is a gentle dog, thoughtful but certainly full of energy and ready to take a jaunty hike if you are willing. He is current on all his vaccines, neutered, dewormed-micro chipped, what more could a new owner need? There is an underlying concern he may have been hit or suffered some kind of head trauma at some point in his young life. He has a slight tremor that also affects his eyes but does not appear to be in any pain or discomfort, neither does he have significant loss of vision. WE feel he is entirely adoptable. Jacks gets along well with dogs he has met, cats, not so much. A family without small children would suit him to a tee. WE believe he is only about two years old, many happy years of joyous companionship ahead. Please give this handsome boy a second chance: Call 524-3252 or check

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have confidence in your gifts, but you also know that no one has all the answers. This humbles you. You will experience profound connection when you share your wisdom and listen to the wisdom of others. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll find yourself in a new place without a clear guide after which to model yourself. Observe the people who look like they know what they’re doing. Ask for tips about what’s appropriate. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You don’t really compete to win. You love the rush of the game. Of course, the rush is always more tangible when you’re winning, which is why you focus so intently today. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 1). Your work will be highly rated, and there is something even better than winning that comes of this event: You’ll no longer care what others think. You are free to create to your own liking. Memorable social arrangements occur over the next seven weeks. July sees you traveling. Commitments are cemented in September. Cancer and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 39, 4, 44, 19 and 30.

by Chad Carpenter

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Meeting other people’s definition of success can only be a hollow win. Decide what is important to you, and cut out the rest. Then you’ll be well on your way to an outcome that meets your own definition of success. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You won’t think about what you want without considering what it takes to get there. Winners take chances. Heroes endure personal risks to help others. VIPs act to make others feel important. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Quality products cost more money and are worth the price. Often the manufacturers of these items are willing to let you try before you buy. Take them up on that kind of offer today. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Because you are emotionally centered and morally grounded, you are likely to make excellent decisions in the days to come. You just might tackle your current challenges without a scintilla of doubt. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Stay calm. Remove yourself from stressors. Go easy. If you get angry, you’ll only get angry again later with yourself for allowing yourself to lose your cool in the first place. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The creative urge of yesterday is not going away, though it may be another week before you have all of the resources necessary to execute it properly. Develop your plans on paper. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You strive to be articulate -- not because you want to sound smart, but because you sense that the strong love you feel would best be communicated with beautiful words, artfully ordered. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Believing something does not automatically make it a fact. You will either do research or you will leave an opening in your line of thinking for proof or disproof. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There’s something you’ve wanted to accomplish for several weeks, but life seems to push back your plans again and again. You’ll have to strengthen your resolve to tackle this.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, May 1, 2013— Page 27

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Wednesday, May 1, the 121st day of 2013. There are 244 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 1, 1963, James W. Whittaker became the first American to conquer Mount Everest as he and Sherpa guide Nawang Gombu reached the summit. On this date: In 1707, the Kingdom of Great Britain was created as a treaty merging England and Scotland took effect. In 1786, Mozart’s opera “The Marriage of Figaro” premiered in Vienna. In 1898, Commodore George Dewey gave the command, “You may fire when you are ready, Gridley,” as an American naval force destroyed a Spanish squadron in Manila Bay during the Spanish-American War. In 1911, the song “I Want a Girl (Just Like the Girl That Married Dear Old Dad),” by Harry Von Tilzer and Will Dillon, was first published. In 1931, New York’s 102-story Empire State Building was dedicated. Singer Kate Smith made her debut on CBS Radio on her 24th birthday. In 1941, the Orson Welles motion picture “Citizen Kane” premiered in New York. In 1960, the Soviet Union shot down an American U-2 reconnaissance plane over Sverdlovsk and captured its pilot, Francis Gary Powers. In 1961, the first U.S. airline hijacking took place as Antulio Ramirez Ortiz, a Miami electrician, commandeered a National Airlines plane that was en route to Key West, Fla., and forced the pilot to fly to Cuba. In 1963, the Coca-Cola Co. began marketing TaB, its first low-calorie beverage. In 1971, the intercity passenger rail service Amtrak went into operation. In 1982, the World’s Fair in Knoxville, Tenn., was opened by President Ronald Reagan. In 1992, on the third day of the Los Angeles riots, a visibly shaken Rodney King appeared in public to appeal for calm, pleading, “Can we all get along?” Ten years ago: President George W. Bush, co-piloting an S-3B Viking, landed on the deck of the carrier USS Abraham Lincoln off the Southern California coast; standing below a banner strung across the ship’s bridge proclaiming “Mission Accomplished,” Bush declared that major combat in Iraq was over, but also said “difficult work” remained ahead. Five years ago: Three dozen people were killed in a double suicide bombing during a wedding procession in Balad Ruz, Iraq. A military jury at Fort Hood, Texas, acquitted Army Sgt. Leonard Trevino of premeditated murder in the death of an unarmed Iraqi insurgent. A U.S. missile strike in central Somalia killed the reputed leader of al-Qaida in Somalia. President George W. Bush imposed new sanctions against property owned or controlled by the military junta in Myanmar. One year ago: In a swift and secretive trip to the Afghan war zone, President Barack Obama signed an agreement vowing long-term ties with Afghanistan after America’s combat forces returned home. Hundreds of activists across the U.S. joined worldwide May Day protests, with Occupy Wall Street members in several cities leading demonstrations and in some cases clashing with police.

Page 28 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, May 1, 2013


Dear Annie: Recently, my wife and I stayed for four days at the home of one of her school chums. The gals yakked until late at night, so I was the first one up every morning. I’m an early riser anyway. I like reading the newspaper with my breakfast, so when I’d get up, I’d go outside and pick up the paper and bring it in. My wife says it was wrong to get the paper before our hostess. Anyway, after a couple of days, the school friend seemed in a snit about something, and my wife says that was the reason, even though she never said so when I asked whether something was bothering her. Recently, we were invited to stay with different friends for a weekend, and I am getting no end of hassle from my wife to make sure I wait for our hosts to finish with the paper. I figure I’ll just go out for coffee somewhere and buy a paper. My wife says it would be rude to take off at breakfast. Is this idiotic or what? -- California Dear California: It would be rude to read the paper in such a way that your hosts must wait for you to finish, or that you drag sections of it all over the house and fill in all the clues to the crossword puzzle. But there is nothing wrong with reading the paper early, putting it back together nicely and having it available to your hosts when they awaken. You can resolve this simply enough. When you arrive, inform your hosts that you are an early riser, and ask whether they would mind if you fetch their paper and read it with your coffee, promising to keep it in pristine condition for when they are ready to read it. You also could offer to go to the local coffee shop and bring back coffee and muffins (and a newspaper) for everyone else. Dear Annie: I need to vent. My daughter, my 8-year-old

granddaughter and I recently went to a Broadway show. After we were seated, a woman, her young daughter and her mother sat next to us. The woman was rather large, but instead of taking the aisle seat, she gave that to her mother and sat next to me. She was practically sitting on top of the chair arms due to her size and was taking up part of my space. At the end of the show, she told us we would need to climb over her because her knees hurt and she couldn’t move yet. I’m sure her knee problems are due to her size. This woman looked to be in her mid-30s. At this rate, she might not live long enough to see her daughter reach adulthood. Don’t you think she should have taken the aisle seat? -- Loved the Show, Disliked the Seat Dear Loved: It seems logical that the person with the most difficulty moving would prefer the aisle seat, but perhaps the woman’s mother insisted on taking it. When stuck in these situations, there isn’t much you can do other than show tolerance for two hours. Dear Annie: I had to laugh when I read “Frustrated Cook’s” letter. I remember how my parents battled with me over eating broccoli when I was a kid. I was forced to finish it, so I would wash small bites down with my sweet tea, as if they were pills. I’m 48 now, and broccoli is one of my favorite foods. However, I can no longer tolerate sweet tea. I think texture is often the issue, as it was for me. When I had kids, I never forced them to eat what I fixed. I gave them the option of making themselves a peanut butter sandwich if they did not want to eat my meals, but I also did not prepare a separate dish for them. -- Memphis Mama
