CONCORD — The presence of Marine Patrol on the lakes in the future perhaps hinges on legislation sponsored by Rep. David Huot (D-Laconia) that would repeal a statute halving boat registration fees as of July 1, 2015. Huot’s bill passed the House of Representatives and now awaits a vote in the Senate. The registration fees represent close to 60-percent of the Marine Patrol budget with a Recreational Boating Safety Grant from the United States Coast Guard accounting for the balance. The grant includes a “maintenance of effort” clause that requires the Coast Guard to reduce the amount of the grant to match reductions in state funding for marine safety. The state budget adopted by the House of Representatives appropriates $4.6-million in fiscal year 2014 and $4.9-million in fiscal year 2015 to Marine Patrol, with registration fees representing $2.8-million and $3.1-million of the revenue. The registration fees were introduced in 1992. As the number of registrations rose, peaking at 102,258 boats in 2005, Marine Patrol was able to fund its operations without adjusting the fees. However, by 2008 the number of registrations had shrunk while inflation had more than halved the purchasing power of dollar since 1992.

LACONIA — Hundreds of people who turned up for last month’s 26.4.26 marathon relay in Gilford got to see some new technology in action as a small drone-like object flew over the crowd, hovering from time to time as it captured images of the event which

were later aired on Lakes Region Public Access TV and WMUR in Manchester. The helicopter-like device, known as a hexacopter by virtue of its six rotors, is about 30 inches across and 25 inches tall and is powered by lithium polymer batteries which give it 10 to see EyE IN sKy page 11

Older brother was buried in Virginia

DOSWELL, Va. (AP) — Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev has been buried in a cemetery in central Virginia, infuriating some members of the area’s Islamic community who say they weren’t consulted and flooring at least one neighbor who said she didn’t even know she lived near a burial ground. The secret interment this week at a small Islamic cemetery ended a frustrating search for a community willing to take the body, which had been kept at a funeral parlor in Worcester, Mass., as cemeteries in Massachusetts and several other states refused to accept the remains. Tsarnaev, 26, was killed April 19 in a getaway attempt after a gun battle with police. His younger brother, Dzhokhar, was captured later and remains in custody. They are accused of setting off two shrapnel-packed pressure-cooker bombs April 15 near the marathon finish line, an attack that killed three people and injured see BURIAL page 3

State Dept. wanted ‘terror’ removed from Benghazi talking points WASHINGTON (AP) — Political considerations influenced the talking points that U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice used five days after the deadly Sept. 11 assault in Benghazi, Libya, with State Department and other senior administration officials asking that references to terror groups and prior warnings be deleted, according to department emails. The latest disclosures Friday raised new questions about whether the Obama administration tried to play down any terrorist factor in the attack on a diplomatic

compound just weeks before the November presidential election. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed when insurgents struck the U.S. mission in two nighttime attacks. The White House has insisted that it made only a “stylistic” change to the intelligence agency talking points from which Rice suggested on five Sunday talk shows that demonstrations over an anti-Islamic video devolved into the Benghazi attack. Numerous agencies had engaged in an email discussion about the talking points

that would be provided to members of Congress and to Rice for their public comments. In one email, then-State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland worried about the effect of openly discussing earlier warnings about the dangers of Islamic extremists in Benghazi. Nuland’s email said such revelations “could be abused by members of Congress to beat the State Department for not paying attention to (central intelligence) agency warnings,” according to a congressional see BENGHAZI page 4

Texas paramedic who responded to explosion linked to bomb makings WACO, Texas (AP) — Texas law enforcement officials on Friday launched a criminal investigation into the massive fertilizer plant explosion that killed 14 people last month, after weeks of largely treating the blast as an industrial accident. The announcement came the same day federal agents said they found bomb-making materials belonging to a paramedic who helped evacuate residents the night of the explosion. Bryce Reed was arrested early

Friday on a charge of possessing a destructive device, but law enforcement officials said they had not linked the charge to the April 17 fire and blast at West Fertilizer Co. “It is important to emphasize that at this point, no evidence has been uncovered to indicate any connection to the events surrounding the fire and subsequent explosion ... and the arrest of Bryce Reed by the ATF,” the McLennan County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

Texas Department of Public Safety said earlier Friday that the agency had instructed the Texas Rangers and the sheriff’s department to conduct a criminal probe into the explosion. The agencies will join the State Fire Marshall’s Office and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, which have been leading the investigation and never ruled out that a crime may have been committed. see PARAMEDIC page 10

CLEVELAND (AP) — A DNA test confirmed another dark twist in the story of three women imprisoned in a house for about a decade: Kidnapping and rape suspect Ariel Castro is the father of a 6-yearold girl who escaped from the house along with the women, a prosecutor said Friday.

As the investigation into the women’s ordeal continued, the FBI also said no human remains were among more than 200 pieces of evidence collected from the house. Two of the women, including the one who gave birth to the girl, returned to relatives’ houses earlier this week. The third

woman, Michelle Knight, was released from a hospital Friday with a request that her privacy be respected. “Michelle Knight is in good spirits and would like the community to know that she is extremely grateful for the outpouring of flowers and gifts,” the statement said.

SHAKER from page one field be named in Cozort’s honor, which noted that he began in career with the district in 1990 as principal of Belmont Elementary School and was a steadfast supporter of the soccer program at Belmont High School. Goulette offered a motion to name the upper soccer field “Cozort Field” and appoint a committee to design and place a sign to that effect without drawing on public funds. The motion carried by a voice vote. Heidi Hiutchinson of Canterbury, who chairs the board, asked on Thursday if the district had adopted a policy bearing on naming property and whether the board was bound to implement the motion voted by the district meeting. Superintendent Maria Dreyer replied that the district had no relevant policy and suggested that without a policy it would be difficult for the board not to comply with the will of the district. “I don’t know how much standing we’d have with the public if we didn’t act on something they voted at the district meeting,” said Robert Reed. Asked if he would represent the board on the committee, Sean Embree said that “I’m not interested in being on the committee if we’re going to discuss do we have to this or not.” Hutchinson clarified that she understood the vote to charge the committee with arranging for a sign and raising the funds to erect it. With that Embree agreed to serve along with Reed as the board’s representatives on the committee. Dan Clary, principal of of the high school, was named to the committee by the motion, and it remains to the moderator to appoint the four public members. MARINE PATROL from page one Safety, said that as Marine Patrol’s resources diminished, the boating season, traditionally June, July and August, stretched to between ice-out and ice-in. As calls for service rose, he said that the number of seasonal officers dwindled and the condition of the fleet and equipment deteriorated. Moreover, the agency’s headquarters at Glendale became structurally unsound and began sinking into the lake. In 2009, the Legislature, with the support of the New Hampshire Marine Trades Association and New Hampshire Lakes Association, doubled the registration fees, adding a rider that they would revert to their original rates in 2015 without legislation to maintain them. However, Sweeney said that Marine Patrol fared less well in the 2012-2013 budget. Apart from trimming the operating budget, the Legislature also drained more than $1 million from the Navigation Safety Fund, a dedicated fund accrued from the annual surpluses in the operating budget, and stipulated that future operating surpluses would lapse to the general fund rather than the Navigation Safety Fund. Sweeney called these measures “a double whammy” to Marine Patrol, which threaten its funding from the Coast Guard. Meanwhile, an assessment of the headquarters building at Glendale in Gilford found it was settling in several directions, its roofs fail to meet snow load requirements and it is not handicapped accessible. Moreover, the mechanical and electrical systems are inefficient and inadequate. The report recommended replacing the building at an estimated cost of $11-million. This year the Public Works Bureau of the New Hampshire Department of Administrative Services revisited the report and proposed replacing the building with a smaller 32,000-square foot structure for a cost of $9.4-million. Sweeney said that if registration fees were halved in 2015, revenues would decrease by at least $1.6-million a year, leaving the agency approximately $500,000 short of meeting operating expenses. That he said would require another budget reduction, which could jeopardize funding from the Coast Guard and put paid to tackling the conditions at Glendale. Huot’s bill to repeal the repeal (House Bill 411) carried the House by 36 votes, 189 to 153, with only 10 Republicans — and only one of 13 Republicans from Belknap County — voting with the majority.

BURIAL from page 2

more than 260. Their uncle, Ruslan Tsarni of Montgomery Village, Md., took responsibility for the body after Tamerlan’s wife, Katherine Russell, said she wanted it released to her in-laws. He said his nephew was buried in a cemetery in Doswell with the help of a faith coalition. “The body’s buried,” said the uncle. “That’s it.” Tsarni has denounced the acts his nephews are accused of committing and has said they brought shame to the family and the entire Chechen community. Dozens of communities approached about hosting a gravesite had refused, many with concerns about gravesite vandalism and backlash from the public. With costs to protect the funeral home mounting, Worcester police earlier appealed for help finding a place to bury Tsarnaev. They had announced Thursday that “as a result of our public appeal for help, a courageous and compassionate individual came forward to provide the assistance needed to properly bury the deceased.”

Martha Mullen, of Richmond, Va., told The Associated Press in a brief telephone interview that she offered to help after seeing news reports about towns and cemeteries refusing to allow burial. She said she is not the only person who helped with arrangements. “It was an interfaith effort,” she said. “Basically because Jesus says love your enemies.” The cemetery is hidden among the rural woods and hills of Caroline County, about 30 miles north of Richmond, and contains only 47 graves in all. All were covered with reddish-brown mulch except for two that appeared newly dug, neither with any kind of marking and one of them presumably Tsarnaev’s. On one of the new graves lay a vase full of roses at one end and a single red rose at the other end. The other new grave was bare. A news helicopter hovered overhead, along with a swarm of television news trucks in what is ordinarily a tranquil meadow in a large, wooded section within sight of a roller coaster at the Kings Dominion amusement park along Interstate 95.

Belknap Convention will take up request for $200k to expand Medicare rehab capability at nursing home on May 21 LACONIA — The Belknap County Convention has scheduled a public hearing at the county complex on Tuesday, May 21 at 6 p.m. to consider the request by the Belknap County Commission for a supplemental appropriation of $200,000 to expand the capacity of the nursing home to offer rehabilitative services paid for by Medicare. Earlier this month Rep. Colette Worsman (R-Meredith), the chair of the convention abruptly cancelled a public hearing to address the request, saying that the county administration failed to provide sufficient information in time for members to make a responsible decision.

Worsman said yesterday that while she still had some questions to answer she was satisfied the convention would have enough information to proceed and fully expected that it would reach a decision after the public hearing. Matt Logue, director of the nursing home, has suggested that by accepting a limited number of patients enrolled in Medicare and referred by hospitals for short stays to undergo physical, occupational and speech therapy, the nursing home would generate $400,000 in additional revenue, enough to cover the cost of expanding the services and return and return a net gain of $200,000. — Michael Kitch

GILFORD — A Laconia man was charged with seven counts of theft by unauthorized taking yesterday after turning himself in to Gilford Police. Gilford Lt. James Leach said Allen R. Dore, 28, of 81 Pine St. Apt.1 was seen on video tape, shoplifting on

seven different days at Hannaford Supermarket between March and May. Leach said he was also served with a no trespass order and cannot return to Hannaford’s. Dore is free on personal recognizance bail.

BENGHAZI from page 2 official who reviewed the 100 pages of emails. The official spoke only on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to speak publicly about the emails that still have not been released. The final talking points that weekend reflected the work of several government agencies — CIA, FBI, State Department, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence — apparently determined to cast themselves in the best light as the investigation was just getting underway. A scathing independent report in December found that “systematic failures and leadership and management deficiencies at senior levels” of the State Department meant that security was “inadequate for Benghazi and grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place.” Eight months after the attack, the long-running and bitter dispute between the Obama administration

and congressional Republicans on the subject shows no sign of abating. The GOP argues that the administration deliberately tried to mislead Congress and the American people. The White House insists that Republicans are trying to politicize the issue. “There’s an ongoing effort to make something political out of this,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said Friday of the disclosure of the emails, which the administration had provided to lawmakers. “The problem with that effort is that it’s never been clear what it is they think they’re accusing the administration of doing.” Republicans have complained that the administration was trying to conceal that the attack was the work of terrorists and not a protest over an anti-Islamic film that got out of hand. Such revelations just before the election perhaps could have undercut President Barack Obama’s record on fighting terrorism, including the killing of 9/11 mastermind Osama bin see next page

Paul Smith School garden will teach Franklin kids where food they eat comes from By Gail OBer


FRANKLIN — A few children said “eew” when they saw bugs, swatted at a few black flies, and crinkled their little noses at the smell of the fertilizer, but a sunny day playing outside in the dirt is always welcome, especially when the goal is the learn to grow vegetables and fruits. As part of a three-phase project spearheaded by Paul Smith School teacher LeAnne Fifield, all of the students at the elementary school will get a chance to plant their own little piece of a vegetable and flower garden. “Everybody likes eating strawberries,” said teacher Leann Miller. “Today they’re going to learn how to plant them.” Strawberries are just a few of the plants that went into the ground yesterday. Into six individual raised box-garden beds and three separate ground-level beds, students planted blueberries bushes, plum and cherry trees, and a variety of vegetables including beans and peas. Many of the plants were grown from seeds inside the class room with the assistance of teachers and grow lamps. Miller said the gardening projects will be incorporated into the overall science curriculum at the Paul Smith School. Master Gardner Terri Paige of the UNH Cooperative Extension Program and Fifield began the program last year when they helped the students build Phase I — a butterfly garden near the main entrance. The remaining gardens are on the other side of the main entrance and will be primarily for food, including some that will go to a local food pantry. Each class room will have a slot in a maintenance schedule where by the students will be responsible, with their teachers, for watering, weeding and ultifrom preceding page Laden, one of his re-election strengths. The State Department emails and other internal administration deliberations were summarized last month in an interim investigative report by Republicans on five House committees.

It said Islamic extremists with ties to al-Qaida took part in the attack, cited reports linking the attack to the group Ansar al-Sharia, mentioned the experience of Libyan fighters and referred to previous warnings of threats in Benghazi. The reference to al-Sharia was deleted, but Nuland wrote later that night that changes she had seen “don’t resolve all my issues and those of my building leadership, they are consulting with NSS,” a reference to the National Security staff within the

White House. She also wrote that she had serious concerns about giving information to members of Congress “to start making assertions to the media that we ourselves are not making because we don’t want to prejudice the investigation.” Senior administration officials, including Jake Sullivan, deputy chief of staff at the State Department, and Ben Rhodes, the White House deputy national security adviser, met that Saturday morning to discuss the talking points. see BENGHAZI page 10

Susan Estrich

Mother love My daughter was born on Mother’s Day, 23 years ago. It was the happiest day of my life — matched only, almost three years later, by the birth of my son. I had never felt such love before. Hooray for Hallmark. Years passed. My own mother died. My daughter went off to college and then graduated. My son went off to college. I see young mothers struggling with squirmy children, exhausted mothers losing their tempers in the mall, mothers and daughters walking and shopping, women my age caring for their own mothers, and I know how hard some of those moments are. But still, I am hopelessly jealous. I want to say to those tired women, “Don’t you know how lucky you are?” — as if my saying it would somehow light a bulb in their brains, calm their nerves, make them realize that the days may be long but the years are so very short. They fly by, and suddenly you are alone at the mall, on the walk, and instead of a squirming child in your arms, you have time on your hands, instead of too many calls from your mother, there are no calls at all. So this column is not for all the mothers who will be surrounded by family on Mother’s Day; it’s not for the sons and daughters who will be toasting their mothers on what is the biggest day of the year for eating out. This one is for those of us who have lost our mothers, for those of us whose children won’t be with us that day, for those who never knew the joy I did or who loved and lost. This one is for those of us who are trying to make our peace with the hardest part of being a mother (or a child), which is not sleepless nights, expense, exhaustion or aggravation. It’s letting go. It is true. From the time our children are born, we begin the process of letting them go into the world, and they begin the process of leaving us.

That is a mother’s most important job: not to hold on, but to let go. All of those stories about the mother bird sitting on her eggs and then the baby birds flying away... How could I have missed that? My mother hated birds. Maybe that’s why. There is a scene in “White Oleander,” a wonderful novel about the foster care system, that describes teenage girls, abandoned by their mothers, giving birth, screaming in pain, crying out for their mothers. To grow up without a mother’s love leaves a hole you never stop trying to fill. But no matter how we try, no matter how much we love, in ways big and small, we disappoint our children, we do things wrong, we fail them. “Just you wait,” I want to say to those young women. “If only I could do everything again,” I say to myself. I remember a moment, years ago, driving with my two young children in the back seat. I was one of those girls who always had an easier time with my professional life than my personal life. I knew I was smart, but no one ever told me I was pretty. I knew I could support myself, but I feared I would always be alone. And there I was with two children — my children, my blessed, beautiful children! And I wanted to freeze the moment, to be there always, right there. But of course, that is not how life works. Children need to grow. They need to have their chance at life, with all of its ups and downs. And as they age, so do we. So, 23 years later, I will not be toasting my new baby on Mother’s Day. I will do what I do most Sundays: go to the market, read the paper, do my work. My children will call me, and I will tell them I am fine, good luck with exams, congratulations on the new cat, I am so proud of you. I will think of my own mother, may she rest in peace. I will try to remember, really, how lucky I am, how grateful I should be. I will do my best, which, ultimately, is all any mother can do.

Time in voting booth will still be a lot shorter than town meeting To the editor, A recent letter from a Sanbornton resident stated that Sanbornton voters entering the voting booth after SB-2 is approved, would take too long. It expressed the concern that residents would show up to vote not having any previous knowledge of what is being voted on. And it also maintained that reading all the warrant articles and proposed budget items in the privacy of a voting booth could cause delays in voting. This is a rather insulting assumption and perhaps the writer should apologize to all the voters of Sanbornton. Any resident/ taxpayer of Sanbornton knows that all the warrant and budget information is available weeks before voting day. First the proposed budget is reviewed at a public meet-

ing held by the town Budget Committee and the public is invited to ask questions and is offered a copy of the proposed budget. Secondly the warrant and budget information is available on the town website. Last but not least, there are copies of the town’s Annual Report available at the town office and Library. These contain all the information needed to make an informed decision. And as far as delays go, no matter how long a wait at the election booth, it will still be a heck of a lot shorter than the time spent at a town meeting! Sanbornton voters — please vote YES on Question #1 on election day Tuesday May 14th from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Bill Whalen Sanbornton

LETTERS Granite State Future forum was not about sharing opinions To the editor, I want to compliment you on the very accurate article in your May 8, 2013 edition titled: At Granite State Futures Talk, Tensions Over Competing Perspectives. I attended the meeting because I wanted to hear ideas from other Lakes Region citizens, and I wanted to see if N.H. Listens was going to employ the unethical Delphi Technique. I’m pleased to report I wasn’t disappointed on either account. I didn’t witness any tension in my small discussion cell, but it could have been present in one of the other six or seven gathering circles, if that’s what you want to call them. You see, the folks at N.H. Listens don’t allow everyone in the room to hear what everyone has to say. They divide and conquer. That strategy worked pretty darned well for Caesar. N.H. Listens uses a facilitated meeting format when they host these Granite State Futures meetings. They advertise the meetings telling citizens that if they attend, their opinions will be included so that all in New Hampshire can hear what you have to say. Guess what? That doesn’t happen, not by a long shot. You see when you get Delphied, as did 116 people who attended — I left myself out of the count because I know how to resist all the psychological tricks that N.H. Listen employs at these facilitated meetings — you have a better chance of landing a 15-pound lake trout in Opeechee Bay than you have of all of your opinions being shared. Here’s why. Each discussion cell, usually made up of about 8 to 12 people, meets on their own for nearly 90 minutes. Believe me, lots of opinions about lots of topics are talked about in that amount of time. But at the end of the meeting, each discussion cell gives a very very brief summary of just a few of their discussion points. Each summary, read aloud to the entire group, only lasts about two minutes, maybe three. You can’t say much in 150 seconds. If you were at the meeting and you put forth five or six stellar ideas, there’s a good chance not one of them made it into the final summary. Doesn’t that stink? I wouldn’t call that “listening”, would you? I’d call that ignoring.

Also, the N.H. Listens group provided a handout filled with biased talking points that each cell was to use to “guide” the discussion. This is also classic textbook Delphi Technique. The meetings N.H. Listens runs, like the one in Laconia on Tuesday night, all have a predetermined outcome based on the discussion points and the plants they summon to attend the meeting. For example, there was a section in the handout about global warming that contained all this biased data about how the Lakes Region and New Hampshire are in peril! Nowhere in the handout did they talk about the four periods of Continental Glaciation that occurred here in North America in the past two million years. Do you want proof of what a good job Mother Nature can do when it comes to climate change? Visit Mt. Major and you’ll see a glacial erratic boulder that weighs hundreds of tons that was dropped there by the last glacier that was here just 15,000 years ago! Or drive up through Franconia Notch on I-93. See the shape of the notch right where the Old Man used to look down? That’s a classic glacial carved valley. Now tell me, how much climate change does it take to create ice thousands of feet thick that stretched from Cape Cod back up to the North Pole? And then how much climate change does it take to melt it with no factories, buses, trucks or man around? See my point how the Delphi Technique is unethical? Finally, at the end of our meeting it was time to select a spokesperson for our cell. I volunteered. No one else in our group volunteered. The facilitator of our group was a young woman named Molly trained in the ways of the Delphi Technique by N.H. Listens. She tried her best to not have me be the spokesperson. When we voted, I got eight out of the ten votes, but she only counted five. After a boisterous protest from myself and two others, she finally backed down. Talk about unprofessional. I can’t for the life of me figure out why she didn’t want me to be the spokesperson for the group. Well, honestly I can. I’ve sort of see next page

LETTERS Only competition lowers prices naturally, not the government

Ralph Rathjen is right person for opening on Sanbornton BudCom

To the editor, Johan Andersen of Gilford wrote recently on health care and its costs. His thinking typifies the same “lost in outer space” logic Jimmy Veverka often illustrates when he puts his crayons to paper. Johan suggests we all would be happier if health care cost less. If only the people in health care would just agree to accept lower wages our troubles would disappear. Like Jimmy, Johan produces some incredible comedic material while attempting to write straight stuff. If problem solving was as simple as asking people to take wage cuts wouldn’t it be nice if the people working in the oil industry took a pay cut allowing expensive gasoline to cost less. Wouldn’t it be nice if teachers and professors took a 25 percent pay cut so taxpayers and parents didn’t have to go BROKE trying to educate their kids. Johan’s logic reveals his COMPLETE lack of understanding of how economics and free enterprise works. Wouldn’t it be nice if an ice cream cone cost less... just slash the wages of those working a Dairy Queen to make it happen. Come on Johan ,use your noggin for something besides a hat rack. The price of items and servicers are a function of what they are worth in society on a comparative basis. They reflect the value the market place puts on them between a willing buyer and a willing seller. WORSE. . . government often sticks it’s pig snout in to DISTORT competitive free markets that continually determine the fair value of all goods and services. This creates government/business/collusion/cronyism that hurts all of us. Government interference in private enterprise does nothing but drive up costs or CREATE self-induced SHORTAGES of that product or service. If something is worth a dollar in the real world and government demands it cost 50 cents, I guarantee you that product will soon be IMPOSSIBLE to find. No one will accept LESS than their skills are worth under capitalism for very long. In addition, investors and risk takers, the required INGREDIENTS to lower the cost of anything, run for the hills when prices are artificially held back by government. Health care is expensive for count-

To the editor, Write-in Ralph Rathjen for Sanbornton Budget Committee. As a community, we always try to encourage residents to become involved in the process of government through expanded participation to all our boards and committees, ensuring better representation by more people and not just the same dedicated, reliable and over worked volunteers. We invite and welcome people with a variety of backgrounds, to offer new eyes with a fresh look, in this case, to our review of past budgets and future budget planning Ralph and his family moved to Sanbornton in 2010, on the property between Upper and Lower Bay Roads, which they farm under the name “ KREBS Farm”, on Upper Bay Road. This is where the Rathjen’s have chosen to retire and live the “Rural Sanbornton Dream”, as they plan and plant the land to produce the best products possible. As a family, the Rathjens have quickly become

less reasons that go far beyond what doctors or nurses make in wages. Why isn’t Johan screaming at Democrats for not promoting LIMITS on tort judgments in health care? It is a well known fact that hundreds of billions of dollars are urinated out the window annually to pay for tests prescribed by doctors to COVER their rears legally from an army of ambulance-chasing lawyers. Doctors do not have to take a pay cut, nor any one else in health care, to have costs drop. That government DICTATES cuts for them will only reduce health care availability and dilute the quality of care. There is nothing better to lower costs for ANYTHING than improved efficiency. It is ONLY more competition that reduces prices NATURALLY. Lasik eye surgery is the perfect example. Prices keep dropping from intense competition because government has kept its snout out. What is GOVERNMENT doing in general health care? KILLING COMPETITION while cramming down 3,000 pages of NEW rules, regulations and ENORMOUS TAXES that will have ONE RESULT — HIGHER COSTS. Even Obama admits Obamacare will do NOTHING to reduce health care costs for the typical middle class American family. That you suggest we arbitrarily CUT THE PAY of workers in a particular industry because you do not like the costs is pure funny page material. The NEW Obamacare has 100,000 codes (up from 16,000) to define what health service a doctor or hospital has provided. Did you get hurt in a chicken coop or a pig sty — they have different codes. Did you bump into the light pole from the left or right — they have different codes. It will take tens of millions of man hours from the health care industry to SIMPLY COMPLY with the reports and regulations of Obamacare, costing HUNDREDS of billions of dollars that provide ZERO HEALTH CARE TO even ONE person but will make the cost of health care RISE. Then we have people like Johan walking the world suggesting the only way to reduce health care costs is to cut doctor and nurse wages. A comedy writer could not produce funnier material than his. Tony Boutin Gilford

Question still out there; why need for mass destruction weapons? To the editor, Dear Don Ewing: I am still awaiting your answer as to why people in this country have to arm themselves with weapons of mass destruction. You have had more than a week to answer those of us who are

puzzled as to why people need high power weaponry. A timely answer would be greatly appreciated. Bernadette Loesch Laconia

from preceding page developed a reputation here in the community of telling the truth about what’s going on with this Granite State Futures initiative and the unethical behavior of N.H. Listens group. I’m sure all the facilitators were warned I’d be at the meeting. If you want to discover more truth and facts about the Granite State Futures project and see a video about the Delphi Technique being used at a N.H. Listens meeting that happened

in Plymouth about two months ago, you should visit a website I discovered about a month ago. Go to: P.S. If you don’t believe me about the Delphi Technique and NH Listens, just go to and type in “delphi technique”. If you were at the meeting on Tuesday night in Laconia with me, you’ll probably be pretty upset when you discover you were flimflamed., Tim Carter Meredith

involved in the community through the library, old home days, farmers markets, Farm to Restaurant Connection, Heritage Farm and the NH Food Bank. I believe that Ralph Rathjen is the right person for the opening on the Budget Committee, at this time. He has extensive experience in financial analysis and has served on a number of advisory and finance boards over the years. In his present endeavors he has proven the ability to appreciate the present needs and the vision to plan for the future, under unpredictable conditions. This is exactly who Sanbornton needs, as we come slowly out of the recent difficult economic times. Ralph is the person with “fresh eyes” and “vision” to work for the “best interest” of we the taxpayers. I encourage you to join me, and Write-in Ralph Rathjen for Budget Committee on May 14th.

Patsy handles everything that comes her way with integrity to the core To the editor, Dear voters of Sanbornton: On May 14th, Sanbornton voters will be heading to the polls to elect a Selectmen. Patsy Wells is running. Patsy Wells has been part of my family for a number of years. In the years together as a family, we have been through a lot of life experience’s with Patsy, tons of joy, and sadly, also great tragedy. Needless to say,with those experience’s, you get to know someone very well and how they deal with the things life sends you. I will tell you, regardless of what comes her way, Patsy handles it with the highest level of integrity to her core. She walks the “high road” because that’s where she lives. She also is one of the most pure of heart human beings I’ve ever had the honor to know. What you see is what you

get, a no-nonsense, sharp as a knife, hard working woman who never stops being who she is. Patsy deeply cares about Sanbornton and the people who make it what it is. Patsy has been a selectman here before as many of you are aware of. She is no stranger to the workings of the town Sanbornton, and knows what it takes to make this great place move ahead into the future. Sanbornton has a great opportunity to once again utilize the assets of her knowledge, fairness and truth. I have no doubt what so ever, Patsy would make positive things happen for Sanbornton. Please support, on May 14th, the most positive choice for the Sanbornton selectmen seat, Vote for Mrs. Patsy Wells! Gordon Gourlay Sanbornton

Guns used to commit Chicago crimes are almost all bought elsewhere To the editor, Recently Steve Earle claimed of my letter, “James gives a clutter of statistics of which I will not endeavor to challenge because they are insignificant to the point.” Oh really? A clutter to Steve maybe. The statistics in my letter — http://www.laconiadailysun. com/index.php/opinion/letters/68016james-veverka-5-3-685 — clearly negated his claims in the first letter that background checks don’t work. They do. The statistic were from Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research, not Breitbart, Fox, or the NRA liars. The data clearly said that in the states that had universal checks and forbade anyone under a domestic abuse order to possess a firearm, the intimate partner homicide rate dropped 19 percent. That is a significant number of lives saved. The study also showed that states with loose gun laws undermined the states with better laws. It also noted that gaps in federal laws drastically weaken intelligent state gun laws. Take Chicago, the right wing’s favorite punching bag. In other parts

of Illinois, the gun laws are looser. That is why 43 percent of the guns seized by law enforcement in Chicago were originally purchased in other parts of Illinois, particularly Cook County. Illinois does not license or otherwise regulate firearms dealers which opens the door to Chicago’s gun trafficking. The remaining 57 percent of Chicago guns all came from out of state, most significantly from nearby Indiana and distant Mississippi. (http://www.theatlanticcities. com/neighborhoods/2012/08/wherechicagos-guns-come/3090/) Here is a NYT article complete with map on where 50,000 Chicago crime guns came from. ( interactive/2013/01/29/us/where50000-guns-in-chicago-came-from. html?_r=0) The next time I read a sentence with “law abiding citizens” from a gun nut I am going to throw up. The whole idea of gun checks is to find the one’s who AREN’T law abiding citizens. 700,000 people have been denied guns since 2000. Unlicensed dealers at see next page

LETTERS SB-2 would create even a smaller ‘few’ ruling the ‘many’

Patsy Wells in public service for greater good of entire community

To the editor, Mr Grey’s letter supporting SB-2 for Sanbornton is mostly about numbers. He thinks that 149 at Town Meeting as opposed to the 570 at the election booth is “the rule of the many by the few”. I look at it differently. The 150 at Town Meeting could speak about and amend warrant articles. In other words, participate directly. With SB-2 it will be 50 or so speaking and amending at the deliberative meeting and 570 voting on what the 50 decided. I think 50 versus 570 is an even smaller few ruling the many. As to the many excuses for why people don’t go to Town Meeting, well I’ve heard them all. Betcha if I offered free Red Sox tickets many could find time to go. I wish more would attend Town Meeting but I defend their right

To the editor, I support Patsy Wells for selectman. In Patsy’s years on the Sanbornton Selectboard (2004 – 2007), I first watched her as she guided the town in a reasonable direction during turbulent times. Then worked with her on the Selectboard for several years as she led us as a board and a community to grow and work together, always respecting, valuing and listening to the thoughts and ideas of her fellow selectmen and town’s people. She gives her position 100 percent of her time and energy, as she researches and balances the ever-changing needs of our town, never wavering and always honoring her commitment. Her past knowledge of the town work-

to choose whether or not they attend. There if one of his listed excuses that angers me. The “aren’t comfortable speaking up in public” or as others often say voting in the comfort and privacy of the voting booth. No one ‘has’ to speak at Town Meeting. Others don’t want to raise their hand to vote and let people see what they voted. When I think of the many people who have fought and were maimed of killed to give us this right it really puts raising a hand to vote in perspective. Please vote NO to SB-2. Town Meeting has worked for over 200 years and it’s not broken. SB-2 is 20 years old and the Legislators are still trying to get the bugs out of it. Evelyn Auger Sanbornton

To Rep. Worseman & her convention supporters I say, ‘press on’

Not a lot of space for free thinking at Granite State Future forum To the editor, Tuesday night I attended a NH Listens session for the Lakes Region Planning Commission. I was under the impression that it would be for the people to air their concerns about what they think needs to be planned. However, in my group of 19 people, there were only one or two other “common citizens” from the local area. Everyone else was a professional of some kind, or had special interests they wanted the commission to hear about. After speaking with a few other friends, I discovered that the situation was the same all around the room. The facilitators did a great job, but since every topic was pre-planned, there was not a lot of space for free thinking. The discussions were mostly about spending money that will line the pockets of the special interest groups. For whose benefit? Certainly not for landown-

ers in the country. Certainly not for middle class hard-working individuals who now will have to pay more for repairing and helping the cities. I felt it was an intrusion of government mandates, pushed by the elite, upon those of us who truly feel that we have rights, too, yet won’t be heard, because we were not represented at that meeting Tuesday night. Now we are facing a bill in the N.H. Legislature that will force us to pay extra for water rights, which they are taking away from us. Check out SB-11. It would allow water districts set up to take over control of private wells by eminent domain. That’s all part of Governor Lynch’s “Water Sustainability” Initiative. Is this what we want for New Hampshire? I don’t. Peggy Graham Sanbornton

ings will help us as we move forward to make well planned, and researched decisions in finances and growth. Patsy is about preserving Sanbornton for all generations and passing along a thoughtfully planned and cared for town. She may not always agree with a person or an issue but you can be assured she will listen respectfully to the cares and concerns and come to a logical and educated decision. She is not in this position for “herself” but for the greater good of the entire community. I hope you will join me in voting for Patsy Wells for selectman in Sanbornton on May 14th .

Request for Reconsidertion of Condition Roberts Cove Road

On behalf of the Trustees of Brewster Academy, Regina A.

The property is located in the Lakeshore Residential Zone. If the meeting is cancelled due to weather or lack of a quorum, the public hearing will be continued to Thursday, June 6, 2013 starting at 7:00 pm in the Alton Town Hall. A notice shall be posted on the front door of Town Hall announcing the meeting cancellation and continued meeting date, time and place. Please contact the Planning Department at 875-2162 with any questions. Plans are on file in the Planning Department on the first floor of the Alton Town Hall. You are invited to come in to view them during our regular business hours of 8:30 to 4:00 Monday through Friday.

To the editor, Belknap County Convention Chair Colette Worsman and her supporters on the convention have received severe criticism over the past several weeks over their handling of the Belknap County budget process. As a Belknap county resident I want to say that the criticism is completely unwarranted. In the Belknap County budget-making process, the convention represents me, the taxpayer, and they are doing exactly what I would want them to do on my behalf which is to intelligently question every line item in the county budget to determine its validity. Without their efforts the Belknap County budget would be 9 percent higher this year. In my view, it isn’t the average taxpayer who is complaining, it is those that didn’t get the increase they were looking for. The convention’s job, by law, is to oversee the budgeting process, not to “rubber stamp” a commissioner budget 9 percent higher than last year. The chairs of the Belknap County and Lakes Region Democrats have called for a “cease fire in the ongoing battle between the majority of the delegation’s Republican members and the county commissioners”, but instead of raising a white flag the county commissioners keep on fighting. If the Democrats want peace, have the Belknap County Commissioners stick to the line item approved budget and get written permission for any changes from the Executive Committee per RSA 24:14 instead of transferring money as they see fit. Checking the county website proves the public may not even access the approved 2013 Belknap County Line Item Budget. The web site shows only the department totals under the 2013 Budget, not the individual line item

expenses that were approved. Additionally, there are indications that the county commissioners are spending money from lines where no appropriations exist in violation of RSA 24:15. Rep. Worsman and her supporters would be derelict in their duty if they didn’t challenge these actions. The county commissioners recently requested a $200,000 increase to the 2013 budget to enable the nursing home to potentially receive $400,000 in additional revenue. In spite of the acrimony of the earlier budget process, Rep. Worsman scheduled a public hearing to discuss the matter but the county commissioners did not provide sufficient backup information to justify the expenditure and Rep. Worsman cancelled the meeting. Good for her. Any reasonable business person would insist on plenty of supporting material for any project where there is the possibility to double your money in a short time. The convention would be neglecting their oversight duties if they were to approve a budget increase without sufficient justification. To Rep. Worsman and her convention supporters, I say good show and press on. The Belknap County Commissioners are like a big ship with a small rudder. It takes a long time and hard work to effect change. Rep. Worsman and her convention supporters have added a couple of feet to that rudder and we are beginning to see some positive change i.e. no tax increase this year and no longer a “business as usual” approach in determining the Belknap County Budget. If the Democrats want peace tell them to stop fighting. Roger Grey Sanbornton

Sen. Ayotte is fighting to keep guns out of the hands of criminals To the editor, Senator Kelly Ayotte, a longtime prosecutor who served as our state’s Attorney General, is someone who is widely respected by law enforcement at all levels from across New Hampshire. During her time as Attorney General, she earned a reputation for working hard to prevent violence while also vigorously prosecuting criminals. I have always and continue to be a strong supporter of the Second

Amendment and the rights of law abiding citizens to keep and bear arms. That’s a commitment that Senator Kelly Ayotte shares. The senator has also kept her focus on key areas that we have identified as essential to preventing violence, strengthening mental health services, improving the existing background check system, bolstering school safety and increasing prosecutions of those see next page

LETTERS SB-2 worked in Gilmanton without a hitch; don’t be bullied To the editor, I’ve been reading the articles in the newspapers regarding information pertaining to SB-2 in Sanbornton and I must say I’m amazed at the amount of incorrect information, scare tactics, and pressure put upon the citizens of your town. You might ask, “Why would someone from Gilmanton write to the newspapers about our town? What does she know?” Good questions. Let me respond. Two years ago our town tried for the 5th or 6th time to pass SB-2. Prior attempts were met with much the same rhetoric I’m seeing from your town: “Deliberative Session will take away the rights of the town to make decisions” or “SB-2 is destructive and complicated. My response is BOLDERDASH! A small group of us got together in my town and put to rest the lies and distortions put out by the “nay sayers” who really don’t know what they’re talking about. My suspicion is that either there is something untoward going on with the select people who bash SB-2 or they just don’t like change. This year was our first chance to try SB-2 for our town and for the school district and guess what? IT WORKED WITHOUT A HITCH! We had more

people show up for the Deliberative Sessions (otherwise known as Town Meeting or School District Meeting), people stood and voiced their opinions, added or deleted from the budgets and Warrant Articles, just as is done at any town meeting. Then they had the opportunity to look over the final budgets during the month before our town election so as to be informed before going into the voting booth to vote on how our tax dollars would be spent. Not everyone in the town showed up for the Deliberative Sessions; and yet, no less showed up than we usually have at the Town Meetings. Sanbornton, don’t be bullied or fooled by those who would say differently. SB-2 opens up opportunities that you now don’t have. You will be able to vote for your choices for elected positions as well as vote for the budget, including Warrant Articles, in the privacy of the voting booth, or by absentee ballot (people on vacation, those in the military, and any others who cannot physically come to the polls). Tell your town how important it is that YOU make the final decisions on how your tax dollars are spent at your Town Election. It’s YOUR money. Elena Ball Gilmanton Iron Works

Gun control advocates are mostly pro killing of 1M fetuses annually To the editor, Gun control advocates say their proposals are worth whatever the impact to law abiding citizens, “if they save just one life”. History teaches that gun controls create more, not fewer victims, but gun control advocates persist anyway, ignoring the additional deaths. Aside from their refusal to learn from history, what makes me so skeptical of their claimed desire to save lives is gun control advocates’ unconcern about millions of other unnecessarily lost lives. Most gun control advocates support Obamacare. Obamacare’s Independent Patient Advisory Board (IPAB) essentially will ration spending on those “too young” or “too old” (suggested as under 15 and over 40), thus causing millions of Americans to die prematurely or live limited or painful lives. Some people in President Obama’s inner circle (Steven Ratner, former Obama car czar, economist Paul Krugman, and Peter Orszag, Obama’s OMB Director) admit that the IPAB is, essentially, the much ridiculed “death panel.” President Obama says, “maybe you are better off not having the surgery but taking the painkiller”. While this may be true, such a decision should be made by the patient and doctor based on the patient’s circumstances, not forced by remote, faceless, unaccountfrom preceding page who commit gun-related crimes. In this debate, Senator Kelly Ayotte has been able to stand on her extensive experience as a prosecutor and as Attorney General. We appreciate the efforts she has made to advocate for common sense solutions that are focused on keeping firearms out of the hands of criminals and those with mental illness. Sheriff Douglas R. Dutile Grafton County

able bureaucrats. Gun control advocates are mostly pro-abortion, pro killing over one million fetuses annually. That’s more than 100 times as many lives as are taken by murder. The trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell in Philadelphia shows that these million plus annual abortions include living breathing moving babies killed after birth. Where is the outrage against these barbaric murders? Where is their concern for these lives? Are gun control advocates fighting for other things that save lives? E.g., tougher sentences for violent criminals, elimination of “gun free zones” which create so many defenseless victims, or elimination of bureaucratic obstacles to getting a gun when a person is faced with credible threats? No. Are they protesting President Obama’s cutting federal gun prosecutions nearly in half, or his releasing criminal illegal aliens from prison unnecessarily in response to the sequester? No. Have they condemned President Obama for the “Fast and Furious” program that funneled guns to Mexican drug cartels who used them and other weapons to kill Americans and about 30,000 Mexicans? No. Gun control advocates’ lack of concern for millions of other destroyed lives is inconsistent with their claimed concern for gun victims. While I am sure many gun control supporters do care, they are being deceived by their liberal leaders who know their proposals won’t save lives. Liberal leaders advocate these proposals because they advance their objectives of increasing government power at the expense of the freedoms and independence of law abiding, and in particular middle class, American citizens.

Meredith man arrested with stolen gun agrees to spend at least 15 months in prison By Gail OBer


MEREDITH — A former Meredith man will serve a minimum 1 1/4 years in the New Hampshire State Prison after pleading guilty yesterday in the Belknap County Superior Court to two counts of possession of a dangerous weapon and one count of receiving stolen property. Benjamin Vachon, 30, was sentenced to serve 1 1/2 to four years for one count of being a felon in possession must serve the minimum with three months suspended upon good behavior. On the second count of receiving stolen property he was sentenced to a suspended 3 1/2-to-seven year term that is consecutive to the first sentence. On the single count of receiving stolen property he was sentenced to serve four to 10 years — all suspended. Vachon was supported in court yesterday by his girlfriend, his mother, his step-mother, his father and his sister entered his guilty pleas. All four women spoke in support of him, telling Judge James O’Neill III that he “has a good soul” but had made mistakes for which he was ready to atone. “The goal here was not the fight the charge,” said Vachon’s attorney Eric Wolpin, who noted that he and Belknap County Attorney Melissa Guldbrandsen worked out the plea on the day he was arraigned. Wolpin said there were numerous issues with the state’s case that he could challenge but said Vachon wanted to plead guilty and not go to PARAMEDIC from page 2 “This disaster has severely impacted the community of West, and we want to ensure that no stone goes unturned and that all the facts related to this incident are uncovered,” DPS Director Steven McCraw said. McLennan County Sheriff Parnell McNamara said residents “must have confidence that this incident has been looked at from every angle and professionally handled — they deserve nothing less.” The statement did not detail any further reasons for the criminal investigation and said no additional information would be released. Reed, meanwhile, was in federal custody.

The next day, Sunday, Sept. 16, Rice appeared on the talk shows and said evidence gathered so far showed no indication of a premeditated or coordinated strike. She said the attack in Benghazi, powered by mortars and rocket-propelled grenades, appeared to be a copycat of demonstrations that had erupted hours earlier outside the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, spurred by accounts of a YouTube film attributed to a California man mocking the Prophet Muhammad.

trial. He said his client had been convicted on first-degree assault charges 10 years ago and had served eight months in the House of Corrections. He said Vachon had been sober since 2006, was working and had a trade in the logging and tree business, but had suffered an injury that lead him to narcotics addiction and back to alcohol. Guldbrandsen agreed that Vachon had been willing to plead his case from the day he was indicted and she told the court the police were in agreement with the negotiated plea. Vachon was arrested by Laconia Police on March 23 and charged with his third count of driving while intoxicated. During the traffic stop, Laconia Police did an inventory search on Vachon’s car and found an empty ammunition clip on the floor of the back seat and a loaded 9 mm handgun tucked underneath the steering column. Police impounded the car and after getting a warrant found another gun, one reported stolen from Belmont, in a box in backpack. According to a clerk in the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division, Vachon also pleaded guilty to the DWI in front of Judge Jim Carroll yesterday afternoon. She said he was sentenced to serve 30 24-hour sentences and his license was suspended indefinitely. Vachon was convicted of driving while intoxicated in 2006 and 2007. O’Neill told Vachon he should consider himself fortunate to have the support of his family and he should not disappoint them again. was arrested after McLennan County deputies were called earlier this week to a home in Abbott, a town about five miles from West, and found bombmaking materials — including a galvanized metal pipe, canisters filled with fuses, a lighter, a digital scale and a variety of chemical powders. “After further investigation, it was determined that the resident had unwittingly taken possession of the components from Reed on April 26,” says the complaint signed by ATF special agent Douglas Kunze. An ATF explosives specialist and a chemist examined the items and agreed the “combination of parts can be readily assembled into a destructive device,” the complaint says. Reed made an initial appearance in federal court in Waco on Friday, but did not enter a plea. Officials have largely treated the West explosion as an industrial accident, though investigators still searching for the cause of a fire that preceded the blast have said they would treat the area as a crime scene until all possibilities were considered. The State Fire Marshal’s Office released a statement Friday saying it decided to continue pursuing a criminal probe because roughly 250 leads have developed and more than 400 people have been interviewed. Authorities have focused on ammonium nitrate, a chemical commonly used as a fertilizer, but that also can be explosive in the right conditions, as the cause of the explosion.

EYE IN SKY from page one 15 minutes of air time according to Shane Selling, who bought it last month and assembled it just in time to use it at the relay. ‘’It was a trial run for us. Denise Beauchaine of LRPA told me she’d like to get some aerial footage of the event and I was happy to do it,’’ says Selling, who run SOS Tech, which provides computer and IT services, and who is a technical consultant for LRPA, where he manages the information servers. Selling says that the DJI S800 hexacopter is fitted with a device called a gimbal, a gyro-stabilized mount, which keeps the high definition SLR camera it carries perfectly balanced so that there is no wobbling for the video feeds it sends back to the monitoring device on the ground. ‘’It holds the camera perfectly still,’’ says Selling, who says that the Sony Aplha NEX-5R camera carried by the hexacopter is capable of both live video as well as still photography. ‘’It’s purely a hobby for me. I’ve been interested for about two years in getting one,’’ says Selling, who

says the device, which he bought second hand, cost him $7,000. He sees many applications for it, from aerial video and photography for commercial use such as car and real estate ads, to live event coverage for television stations in situations where renting a helicopter is prohibitively expensive. Beauchaine is very enthusiastic about the added capabilities that it gives to LRPA in its coverage of local events. ‘’It gives our viewers new perspectives on what’s happening and adds some excitement to our coverage,’’ she says. Selling says that the hexacopter is equipped with GPS technology which allows it to hover over a designated spot while rotating the camera so that it can monitor everything taking place beneath it while a pitch sensor keeps it on a level plane. And there is a fail safe system which kicks in if the connection with the controller is lost. The machine will return to the launch site and on the return it see next page

Lester pitches 1-hitter as Red Sox beat Jays, 5-0 BOSTON (AP) — Jon Lester pitched a one-hitter Friday night, allowing only Maicer Izturis’ two-out double in the sixth inning, and the Boston Red Sox broke a three-game losing streak with a 5-0 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. Just nine days shy of the fifth anniversary of his no-hitter, the left-hander retired the first 17 batters before Izturis lined a clean double several feet over the outstretched arm of third baseman Will Middlebrooks that landed just inside the foul line. Lester then ended the inning by striking out pinch hitter Adam Lind. Lester (5-0) allowed just one of the remaining nine batters to hit the ball out of the infield and finished with five strikeouts. The closest the Blue Jays came to another hit was Brett Lawrie’s low liner starting the sixth that center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury caught easily. Izturis was the only runner allowed by Lester, who pitched the third shutout and 10th complete game of his career. He was coming off two of the poorer performances of his outstanding season, both losses in which he didn’t get the decision. Despite Lester’s brilliance, the Red Sox led just 1-0 through six innings. They scored in the second against Ramon Ortiz (0-1) when Daniel Nava walked, took third on a single by Jarrod Saltalamacchia and scored when shortstop Izturis fielded Middlebrooks’ grounder but his throw to start a potential inning-ending double play eluded second from preceding page will maintain the same height and pathway it followed so that it will not crash into a building or other obstacle. He said that the hexacopter features modular construction which makes it easy to assemble and take apart and also means that parts can be replaced without having to replace an entire unit. Selling demonstrated the hexacopter recently at Opechee Park with help from his father, Tom Selling, a licensed professional engineer who has his own business, T.R. Selling Engineering, with Shane handling the flight controls while his father manned the monitoring device which received the video feed. The hexacopter took off and went up to about 150 feet where it took still pictures of those on the ground and ten then was flown over the Laconia Little League’s Colby Field before being brought back to its launch site after a demonstration of its hovering capacity near the outfield fence at the field. Selling says that he’s looking to replace the current rigid landing gear with a retractable one so that the landing gear, which is visible in some current aerial photographs and videos, will be out of sight. He says that police departments around the country are already using hexacopters in a variety of ways, from monitoring traffic to active crime scenes,

baseman Mark DeRosa. The Red Sox finally built a comfortable lead with four runs in the seventh, making it 5-0. Singles by Ellsbury and Shane Victorino put runners at first and second and they moved up on a wild pitch by Brett Cecil. Dustin Pedroia singled in a run, but the next two batters struck out. Then Saltalamacchia doubled in two runs and Middlebrooks drove in another with his second double of the game. On May 19, 2008, at Fenway Park, Lester pitched his only no-hitter in a 7-0 win over the Kansas City Royals. Friday’s outing was the fourth time he allowed just one hit while pitching at least seven innings — and the third time against Toronto. The other two were over eight innings in a 1-0 win in Boston on April 29, 2008, and seven innings in a 2-0 win at Toronto on April 28, 2010. He also did it against Kansas City in eight innings of a 1-0 win on July 18, 2006. Boston continued to waste numerous opportunities. It left runners on base in each of the first seven innings after stranding runners in all nine innings of Thursday night’s 5-3 win over the Minnesota Twins. NOTES: Toronto designated hitter Rajai Davis left the game with a left oblique strain. Lind pinch hit for him in the sixth. ... Buchholz (6-0) pitches for Boston against Mark Buehrle (1-2) in the second game of the three-game series Saturday.

Bruce Heald publishes book on NH country stores

MEREDITH — “Old Country Stores of New Hampshire’’ written by Dr. Bruce Heald and published by The History Press tells the story of country stores, an essential and beloved part of the state’s character often hidden on the back roads and byways of the Granite State. Developed from trading posts as travelers settled throughout the state, they are recognizable for their vast array of merchandise and a fragrant blend of tobacco, spices and coffee. The country store became the center of the community, where residents could play checkers, mail letters, attend town meetings and shop. They are still fixtures in many towns today, including the Brick Country Store in Bath, considered to be the oldest in the United States, dating back to 1790; Fadden’s General Store and Sugarhouse in North Woodstock, which produces award-winning maple syrup; and the Old Country Store in Moultonborough, which had its beginnings as a tavern.

Roche Realty Group sales surge 61% MEREDITH — During the period from January 1 through May 3 of this year Roche Realty Group, Inc. experienced a 61% increase in total sales volume compared to the same period during 2012. Frank Roche, president of Roche Realty Group, which has offices in Meredith and Laconia, said “We are very pleased with the encouraging sales activity we have experienced this past winter and into the spring months. It certainly is a great indication that the market is improving and that many individuals are finding some great values out there in the marketplace.” Roche said the company had total sales volume of $30,659,408 involving 104 transaction sides. This sales volume resulted in Roche Realty Group being ranked as the #10 real estate firm in the state of New Hampshire in total sales volume for that

period of time. During 2012 the company had gross sales of approximately $80,000,000 involving 305 transaction, which represented at that time a 17% increase in unit sales over the previous year. At the current time, the company has almost 60 pending sales ready for closing, which Roche said is another great indicator that the year 2013 is off to a very good start. On the waterfront side, sales activity on Lake Winnipesaukee has been steady but not exceptional. Year-todate there have been a total of 24 waterfront sales on the “Big Lake,” including all towns, with the highest sales price thus far at $2,350,000. The majority of the sales year-to-date (17 sales) have been selling below the million dollar mark, which would appear to be below the average selling price of last year.

Anthony was a singer and musician, acting as music director and organist for several Catholic churches around Massachusetts.

Lakes Region Real Estate Market Report / Roy Sanborn

April waterfront sales report There were 10 waterfront homes sold on Lake Winnipesaukee in April at an average sales price of $805,588. That total is up from the seven sales last April but the average price is down from $2.15 million. This is due to only three sales exceeding the million dollar mark last month compared to the five out of seven that were over a million last April. The least expensive sale on the big lake was at 251 Dockham Shore Road in Gilford. This is a 1938 vintage, four bedroom, seasonal cottage on a third acre lot with 50-feet of frontage, a sandy beach, and a dock. Now this charming little place is only 968-square-feet so you get the idea that the bedrooms are tiny, but who cares? There’s a knotty pine living room with cathedral ceilings and a field stone fireplace and a great screened porch to tell tall tales on. What more do you need? This property took a little time to sell. It was originally listed in September 2010 at $699,000 and then relisted in May of 2012 at $499,000. The price was subsequently reduced to $399,000 and sold then for $350,000. The current tax assessment is $684,960. I’m thinking the buyer got a pretty good deal... The property that sold closest to the median price point is at 56 Loch Eden Shores Road in Meredith. This property sold well below the assessed value of $812,600 but it took a while to find a buyer, too. It was first listed for $859,900, was reduced to $749,000, and finally sold after 402 days on the market for $695,000. Built in 1955, this house was a little newer, but it also had that knotty pine interior, cathedral ceilings, requisite stone fireplace, and enclosed porch. It was also a little larger with 1,411-square-feet of living space and three bedrooms and one and a half baths. The house is located on a private .48-acre double lot and has 190-feet of southwesterly facing frontage in a quiet cove. Sounds like a skinny dipping spot to me... The largest sale on Winnipesaukee in April was at 62 Sticks and Stones (will break my bones?) Road in Moultonborough. This 1929 vintage, 2,431-square-foot, five bedroom, log-sided home also has a large great room with knotty pine walls, cathedral ceilings, and a stone fireplace, but the price is also creeping up due to everything else it has. The house has lots of porches; one on the lakeside, a farmer’s porch on the front, plus a screened one so you can tell lies at night with-

out getting bit by the bugs. The house sits on a 5.22-acre parcel with a level lawn area, 375feet of sandy southwesterly facing frontage, and a forty foot permanent dock. Permits are in place for a new seven bedroom Adirondack home and a seasonal dock system for five boats. This property was listed at $1.74 million and sold for $1.625 million after just 40 days on the market. It is assessed for $1.484 million. I bet someone is excited, what do you think? There was one sale on Winnisquam at 210 Black Brook Road in Meredith. This is a 3,500-squarefoot, three bedroom, three bath, gambrel style home on a 1.31-acre lot with 252-feet of frontage. This home was built in 2003 and offers fantastic views of the lake from the deck, the great room, and from a Light House Tower! I wonder if there is a damsel in distress up there? The home has vaulted ceilings, floor to ceiling fireplace, custom wood work, a kitchen with hickory cabinetry and Jenn-Air stove, and even an adorable guest cottage. There’s a two car garage and a 24-foot dock to tie up your motorized vehicles. This home was listed for $799,000, reduced to $699,000, and finally sold for $600,000 after 587 days on the market. It is assessed at $672,100. See the pattern? There was also one sale on Squam in April and to me it is a quintessential Squam Lake property. Located at 55 Laurel Island Lane in Holderness, this classic 1940’s compound includes a charming 3-4 bedroom seasonal main home with a field stone fireplace, knotty pine interior, and a fantastic wrap-around porch plus a two bedroom guest cottage. Pretty special! There’s also a three car garage and two additional outbuildings offering other bunkhouse possibilities. The private 1.27 acre lot has 180-feet of frontage, a boat house, and dock. This property was listed at $1.399 million in June of 2012, relisted this year at $1.05 million, and sold for $975,000 in just nine days. I think they had a buyer waiting and I bet he’s extremely happy...

Dear Annie: I am writing a long overdue thank-you note to my parents. They are faithful readers of your column. Mom and Dad, I am thankful that: You stood your ground and did not give in to me, even when I threw fits and demanded my way. You supported me in school and gave me the tools to succeed, instead of letting me waste my potential. You made me honor the commitments I had made, instead of allowing me to quit when it became hard or boring. You took me to church on Sundays, rather than allowing me to sleep in. You insisted that I respect authority, not thinking it was cute when I defied adults. You made me speak using clean language, not tolerating profanity even though “everyone else talked that way.” You checked my Facebook page and other social media, making me remove anything inappropriate or insulting to others. You explained the dark and dangerous path I was choosing when I was tempted to dabble in alcohol and drugs, instead of turning a blind eye. You encouraged and persuaded me to wait when I considered having sex as a teen, rather than buying me birth control. You showed me how to forgive others and overlook offenses, instead of letting me develop a bitter spirit. You taught me the value of teamwork, not a “Me First” attitude. You guided me to develop goals and not live for immediate self-gratification. You helped me choose friends carefully and wisely, instead of welcoming everyone into my life under the guise of being

non-judgmental. You insisted that I apologize when I was wrong and make efforts at reconciliation, rather than create unnecessary enemies. You lectured me often, instead of biting your tongue. You were the authority figures in the home, and I knew it. Even though I yelled that you hated me, I didn’t really believe that. I knew that every word and action from you came from a giant heart of love. Here’s to you, Mom and Dad. Thank you for your courageous parenting. -- Young Adult Who Is Better for It Dear Young Adult: We can only imagine how proud your parents will be to see this. We hope every parent who reads your letter will make a copy to keep by their bedside and believe that their own child wrote it. Thank you. Dear Annie: “California” asked about the gifts for a young man entering boot camp. Unless they do it differently now, you can’t just change your mind. You sign a contract. Leaving would be “going AWOL,” and they will come looking for you. -- Been There Dear Been: Actually, this is not so. You can change your mind about enlisting, as long as you go through the proper procedures to do so. Dear Annie: Your response to “Iowa” was a little short of information. She questioned why toilet paper dispensers were so low. According to the Americans with Disabilities Act, they are required to be at that height. Requirements also include heights for side and rear grab bars, as well as minimum stall sizes and clearances. Did you know that a 5-foot circle is required as a clear dim within a handicapped stall? There is more, but you get the point. -Christian in Aptos

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis

ment, writing and opinion sharing that by evening you’ll long for silence and perhaps some mindless entertainment. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A casual relationship is becoming more important to you. The rhythm of it suits your life nicely. The exchanges you share may be lighthearted, but they are also meaningful and filled with feeling. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll prepare yourself well, anticipating potential problems and making sure that the solutions are close at hand. Brilliance occurs in the planning and setup stages of a project. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If you start to lose steam or develop a less than enthusiastic attitude, being around a happy person, even if it’s only for a few minutes, will put you in a positive mood. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 11). Business activities are especially vigorous over the next four months, and you’ll advance quickly with new responsibilities and better remuneration. June features enriching connections and unexpected invitations. With romance as an afterthought, someone will work madly to get and hold your attention. Pisces and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 4, 14, 37 and 19.

by Chad Carpenter

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Carefully phrase your compliments and be thoughtful with your praise. Loved ones want to be recognized for their unique qualities, not for how well they suit your needs. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). With so many planetary influences rooting for you these days, it’s a wonderful time for you, if you know what to do with it. Don’t be afraid to go for what you really want! GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Morality and honor are virtues not to be confused. “The difference between a moral man and a man of honor is that the latter regrets a discreditable act, even when it has worked and he has not been caught.” -- H. L. Mencken CANCER (June 22-July 22). The best gift you could give another now is your kindness. It will trump anything you could buy today. Your sincere words of comfort and support would not be possible without your inherently good heart. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You want to partner with someone who will carry out mundane processes and handle the details so you will be free to create. You may not find this person, but look anyway, because you’re unlikely to find that which you don’t seek. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You don’t need approval, but you will benefit from gaining trust. Bonus: The work you do to gain someone’s trust will also build your confidence and skills. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There are two kinds of stress: destructive stress and helpful stress. Cut out destructive stress by biting off slightly more than you can chew but not enough to choke you. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The intensity of your life will be dialed up today. Though you may not be certain of exactly how you feel, you’re absolutely certain that you do feel something. Take all the time you need to process. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The day features so much speculation, argu-

Page 22 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, May 11, 2013

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Saturday, May 11, the 131st day of 2013. There are 234 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 11, 1973, the espionage trial of Daniel Ellsberg and Anthony Russo in the “Pentagon Papers” case came to an end as Judge William M. Byrne dismissed all charges, citing government misconduct. On this date: In 1647, Peter Stuyvesant arrived in New Amsterdam to become governor of New Netherland. In 1858, Minnesota became the 32nd state of the Union. In 1862, during the Civil War, the Confederate ironclad CSS Virginia was scuttled by its crew off Craney Island, Va., to prevent it from falling into Union hands. In 1927, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences was founded during a banquet at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles. In 1935, the Rural Electrification Administration was created as one of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal programs. In 1943, during World War II, U.S. forces landed on the Aleutian island of Attu, which was held by the Japanese; the Americans took the island 19 days later. In 1950, President Harry S. Truman formally dedicated the Grand Coulee Dam in Washington state. In 1953, a tornado devastated Waco, Texas, claiming 114 lives. In 1960, Israeli agents captured Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In 1981, legendary reggae artist Bob Marley died in a Miami hospital at age 36. The Andrew Lloyd Webber musical “Cats” opened in London. In 1985, 56 people died when a flash fire swept a jam-packed soccer stadium in Bradford, England. In 1996, an Atlanta-bound ValuJet DC-9 caught fire shortly after takeoff from Miami and crashed into the Florida Everglades, killing all 110 people on board. Ten years ago: The United States declared Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein’s Baath Party dead. Lithuania became the first ex-Soviet republic to approve entry into the European Union as voters completed a weekend referendum. Canada beat Sweden 3-2 in Finland to win its first hockey world championship in six years. Five years ago: Serbia’s pro-Western president, Boris Tadic (boo-RIHS’ TAH’-dich), declared victory in parliamentary elections — a stunning upset over ultranationalists. Parvati Shallow was the last woman standing on CBS’ “Survivor: Micronesia — Fans vs. Favorites.” (Shallow had previously come in sixth place on “Survivor: Cook Islands.”) One year ago: A Chicago jury convicted Oscarwinner Jennifer Hudson’s former brother-in-law, William Balfour, of murdering her mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew. (Balfour was later sentenced to life in prison.)
