Humane Society reports outpouring of support for badly neglected terriers


Youssef will be a GOP candidate for N.H. Senate

Starry, starry night


LACONIA — Marlee Gorham, public relations director of the New Hampshire Humane Society, said the organization has received a “huge response” in the wake of media coverage last week of the nine Jack Russell terriers rescued from a case of severe neglect in Plymouth. The dogs had been confined to crates for at least four years and were found to be living in their own waste when rescuers arrived. Since the dogs’ tales were told in local newspapers, Gorham said “we haven’t done anything except Jack Russell terrier business,” a situation the organization was happy to be in. The story inspired what she called an “unbelievable outpouring” of support and concern from dog lovers near and far, most of whom were particularly enamored of the Jack Russell terrier breed. The support has been more than just lip service, too. The Humane Society asked for donations to its Willow Fund, a restricted account used only to provide medical care for the animals the shelter accepts. see tErrIErs page 10

LACONIA — A local businessman, Joshua Youssef of Same Day Computers, said yesterday that he will seek the Republican nomination for the State Senate seat in District 7. District 7, as drawn by the redistricting plan enacted by the Legislature last month, consists of the cities of Laconia and Franklin and the towns of Belmont and Gilford in Belknap see sENatE page 10

Gay marriage shift gives Obama fundraising boost

NEW YORK (AP) — President Barack Obama has seen an uptick in fundraising since he announced his shift on gay marriage, with some Democratic rainmakers citing renewed interest from gay and lesbian donors who had been urging the president to clarify his stance on the divisive social issue. “The phone calls went on until one in the morning after the president spoke — people calling saying ‘Where do I go, what can I do to help, what events are coming up,’” said Robert Zimmerman, a Long Island, N.Y., Obama bundler. “People I’ve been seeking out for campaign support for months have been calling me saying, ‘I’m ready to give.’” Obama’s campaign has declined to say how much it has collected since the announcement but some staffers have asked supporters to give money as a way of expressing their approval.

Calls to toughen regs follow report of $2B JPMorgan loss WASHINGTON (AP) — JPMorgan Chase faced intense criticism Friday for claiming that a surprise $2 billion loss by one of its trading groups was the result of a sloppy but well-intentioned strategy to manage financial risk. More than three years after the financial industry almost collapsed, the colossal misfire was cited as proof that big banks still do not understand the threats posed by their own speculation. “It just shows they can’t manage risk —

and if JPMorgan can’t, no one can,” said Simon Johnson, the former chief economist for the International Monetary Fund. JPMorgan is the largest bank in the United States and was the only major bank to remain profitable during the 2008 financial crisis. That lent credibility to its toughtalking CEO, Jamie Dimon, as he opposed stricter regulation in the aftermath. But Dimon’s contention that the $2 billion loss came from a hedging strategy that backfired, not an opportunistic bet with the

bank’s own money, faced doubt on Friday, if not outright ridicule. “This is not a hedge,” said Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., chair of a subcommittee that investigated the crisis. He said the trades were instead a “major bet” on the direction of the economy, as published reports suggested. On Friday, Dimon told NBC News, for an interview airing Sunday on “Meet the Press,” that he did not know whether JPMsee JPMORGAN page 12

DALLAS (AP) — Decades after a heart condition forced him to retire from racing, Carroll Shelby still loved to drive muscle cars. Well into his 80s, the legendary car designer spent hours testing his last Mustang Shelby GT500, which sets a new record for horsepower and hits a top speed of more than 200 miles per hour. A one-time chicken farmer, Shelby had more than a half-dozen successful careers

during his long life: champion race car driver, racing team owner, automotive consultant and safari tour operator. His fabled Shelby Cobra sports car became an automotive and cultural icon, and he was later credited with injecting testosterone into Ford’s Mustang and Chrysler’s Viper. When Shelby died Thursday night in a Dallas hospital, he also was one of the nation’s longest-living heart transplant

recipients, having received a heart on June 7, 1990, from a 34-year-old man who died of an aneurysm. Shelby also received a kidney transplant in 1996 from his son, Michael. “What made him so unusual is he developed, literally, hundreds of cars,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of BarrettJackson Auction Company. “This guy was see SHELBY page 12

CHICAGO (AP) — A Chicago jury on Friday convicted Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson’s former brother-in-law of murdering her mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew in what prosecutors’ described as an act of vengeance by a jilted husband. Hudson, who expressed her undisguised disdain for William Balfour when she took

the witness stand and who endured weeks of excruciating testimony about the October 2008 killings, was overcome with emotion as the verdict was read. She bit her lip, tears welling in her eyes and streaming down her cheeks. A minute later, she looked over at her sister, Julia Hudson, and smiled.

Balfour, who faces a mandatory life prison sentence, showed no emotion. A few of his relatives looked upset, one repeatedly shaking her head and muttering that the verdict was unfair. As she had during the trial, Hudson looked back at Balfour’s supporters, then whispered something to her sister. see HUDSON page 13

Authorities say 2 young sisters kidnapped from Tennessee home didn’t eat for days GUNTOWN, Miss. (AP) — Hope was fading that two young sisters abducted from their Tennessee home would be found alive two weeks after they vanished: Their kidnapper had already killed their mother and sister, and he was armed with a pistol as officers closed in. Yet 12-year-old Alexandria and 8-year-old Kyliyah Bain went home to their father Friday alive, with no apparent injuries other than being tired, scared and itchy from poison ivy. They told the officers who found them that they had not had food or water for three days, said Mississippi Highway Patrol Master Sgt. Steve Crawford.

Big Papi says he’s fine after car accident on Boylston Street BOSTON (AP) — Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz is unhurt after a minor car accident on his way to Fenway Park. WBZ-TV in Boston reported Ortiz was involved in the crash as he was leaving a gas station on Boylston Street on Friday afternoon. Boston police spokesman David Estrada said no injuries and only minor vehicle damage was reported. He didn’t immediately have further details. The Red Sox also confirmed Ortiz was unhurt. Ortiz told WBZ: “I lost a little control coming out of the gas station and I hit a car, but I’m fine. Everybody is fine.” He said “we’re going to try to be fine” for Friday night’s game with the Cleveland Indians.

Beverly Goodman, the aunt of the slain mother, Jo Ann Bain, said she was relieved the girls were home but still saddened by the killings of Bain and Bain’s 14-year-old daughter Adrienne. “He’s been missing for so long. How do you hide out from 350 million people?” Goodman said. “I thought they were going to find them dead — the girls and him — so I am very, very relieved that those girls are home and they’re not dead, like I figured they were gonna be.” At one point, Mayes had claimed to be the girls’ father. That may be why he spared them, one criminologist said. It also may be that while he wanted

to escape prosecution, he didn’t believe the girls were better off dead. And he was close to the family, described as an uncle-like figure who smiled cheekto-cheek with the girls in Facebook photos. “He probably developed an attachment to them, and even the most vicious of killers can separate the world into people they care about, people they detest and people they don’t care about,” said James Alan Fox, a criminologist at Northeastern University. Authorities said Mayes, 35, killed Jo Ann Bain and 14-year-old Adrienne on April 27 in Whiteville, Tenn. Mayes’ wife, Teresa Mayes, is charged with see SISTERS page 4

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — One of the two charges against two Penn State administrators will likely be dismissed now that prosecutors have come forward to change by one year the date they allege former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky sexually assaulted a boy in the team’s showers, legal experts said. Five weeks ago, the attorney general’s office argued in a court filing concerning the charge of failing to properly report suspected child abuse against Tim Curley and Gary Schultz that the statute of limitations had not expired because the incident involving “Victim 2” occurred in March 2002. On Tuesday, Sandusky case Judge John Cleland granted prosecutors’ request to amend that offense date to February 2001. Under a timeline about the statute of limitations that was included in the March 30 filing by

state prosecutors, the failure-to-report charge now appears to fall outside the time limit by nine months. “Based on the prosecution’s own pleading, the statute of limitations is 10 years from the event,” Tom Farrell, Schultz’s lawyer, said in a statement Friday. “There is no dispute that the statute of limitations has expired on the failure to report count.” Asked whether that means the charge will be dismissed, the attorney general’s office declined to comment. University of Pittsburgh law professor David A. Harris predicted the failure-to-report part of the case will soon be dropped. “We generally don’t have, in the law, things that are as clear as this, but here we do have one,” Harris said. “A statute of limitations means that too much see PENN STATE page 11

Bank of N.H. branch in Conway robbed by woman CONWAY — Police are looking for a female suspect following a robbery at the Bank of New Hampshire on Route 16 in Conway. The woman walked into the bank, which has Laconia Savings Bank signs out front but recently changed its name to Bank of New Hampshire, with a demand note around 1:30 p.m., according to Conway Police spokesman Lt. Chris Perley. The amount taken was not released. The police are describing the suspect as 5 foot 7 inches tall, 200 pounds, with long dark hair. “She was wearing a long-sleeved shirt or jacket, a baseball cap with a ponytail pulled out the back and a shoulder bag or purse,” the department said in a written statement. “After the robbery the suspect left on foot and entered a vehicle parked in the area of David Haine Real Estate.” The vehicle was described as a dark, late model sport utility vehicle with a lighter colored lower section, according to the statement. “The suspect and vehicle were last seen leaving the area towards Pleasant Street.” The Conway branch was closed following the incident. A written statement from Bank of New Hampshire said it would reopen the following morning. Calls to the branch were directed to the corporate office, where a spokesman had few additional details to add. “All I know is it happened earlier this afternoon and no one was injured,” said Tom Garfield, an exec-

murder in the killings. She told investigators she saw her husband kill the mother and oldest girl, then drove him, the younger children and the bodies to Mississippi, according to court documents. His mother, Mary Mayes, also is charged in the kidnapping but maintains she is not guilty. Adam Mayes was hiding out with the girls in the woods just miles from his home in Mississippi, and some 90 miles from where the sisters were kidnapped in Tennessee. The area is frequented by hunters and dotted with deer hunting stands and other wood structures that one law enforcement official said may have been used for shelter. An officer combing through the area spotted Alexandria Bain face down on the ground Thursday evening about 100 yards behind a church. They also saw the younger girl and Mayes prone on the ground. Officers yelled for Mayes to show his hands, but he got to his knees, pulled a 9mm pistol from his waistband and shot himself in the head, said Aaron T. Ford, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Memphis, Tenn., office. Mayes did not say anything before shooting himself, and he did not brandish the gun toward the girls or officers. The girls only sat up and stayed in place when Mayes

shot himself, said Lt. Lee Ellington with the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks. “They were rather stoic in one sense and relieved,” he said. “I heard the older girl tell her sister, ‘Now we can go home.’” Guntown Police Chief Michael Hall had said previously that Mayes also had a sawed-off shotgun and a rifle with him. But Albert Santa Cruz, commissioner of the Mississippi Department of Public Safety, said Mayes had only the pistol he used to kill himself. Many questions remained about what exactly happened: Investigators have not said what the girls have told them since their rescue. Officers who were there said the main focus was to get the girls to safety, not question them on the scene. Authorities also have not said why Mayes may have wanted to kidnap the children or kill their mother and sister. And it wasn’t known how they survived in the woods. The girls were released from a hospital, officials said Friday, and reunited with relatives in Tennessee. Family spokesman David Livingston said their father, Gary Bain, was thrilled to have them back, but “you can understand that he is extremely distraught over the loss of his wife and daughter.” Funeral arrangements for Jo Ann and Adrienne see next page

State notifies Laconia it won’t help pay for widening portion of Main Street bridge project By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (DOT) has informed city officials that it will contribute 80-percent of the cost of reconstructing the Main Street bridge over the Winnipesaukee River to its existing dimensions, but will not share in the cost of widening the structure. “The long and short of it,” City Manger Scott Myers wrote In an e-mail to the mayor and City Council, “is . . . if the city wishes to include an additional amount of work in anticipation of future needs, we could do so during construction but the cost would fall entirely on us.” The City Council, while shelving a proposal to open Beacon Street East and Beacon Street West to two-way traffic, nevertheless requested the DOT to share the cost of widening the bridge to enhance the safety of the crossing. At the same time, a wider bridge would accommodate two-way traffic should it be deemed feasible in the future. In a memorandum, Director of Public Works Paul Moynihan explained that the guidelines for distributing state funding for bridge repair and reconstruction restrict DOT to replacing existing structures, even if they fail to meet design standards for new construction, unless it can be demonstrated that

Saturday May 12, 2012

they present a significant risk to public safety. The city supported its request by referring to the curve at the foot of Beacon Street West, which could be brought into compliance with state standards by widening the bridge. The agency was not persuaded by the evidence the city presented of tractor trailers crossing lanes and damaging curbs while negotiating the sharp bend. When rehabilitating the Main Street Bridge was first placed on the list for state aid in 2006, the estimated cost of the project was $900,000, Moynihan noted. By last year, when the bridge was evaluated, the estimate more than doubted to $2-million, which according to DOT is two or three times the average cost of rehabilitating a municipal bridge. Moynihan said that DOT expects the city to provide a plan and estimate indicating both the width of the bridge deck and the geometry of the approach road. The agency will review the design and determine

which elements qualify for state funding and which do not. The bridge is scheduled for state funding in fiscal year 2013, which begins on July 1. Moynihan said that DOT would expedite its review of the design to ensure the project is put out to bid this year. Moynihan suggested that without widening the bridge, the street could be moved northward on the troublesome curve to widen the roadway and flatten the bend, either with or without reducing parking spaces, depending on how far the street is moved. On the other hand, Moynihan said that widening the bridge on the the downstream side, which could cost anywhere from $50,000 to $500,000, would offer several alternatives. Widening could be confined to the “pinch point” on the curve. Or,footings and piers could be built, without laying a deck, to accommodate further widening to provide capacity for twoway traffic in the future. Lastly, the footings, piers and deck could be built to widen the bridge in 2013.

from preceding page Bain had not yet been made. Livingston said the FBI has asked that the surviving children not go out in public. They were to be interviewed by authorities on Saturday, he said. Mayes’ mother-in-law, Josie Tate, said Mayes

believed he was the father of the two younger girls, but she later said she didn’t believe that was true. Mayes’ wife, Teresa, told authorities he killed the mother and older child so he could abduct the other two children.

Who’s on first? Depending on which poll you believe, Obama is either up by 3, 7 or 9 points, or down by 1, 3 or 5. Or none of the above. Figuring out who’s going to be on first in November (which is the only time that counts) is not something you can do just by looking at a photograph of where people are today (which is what a poll does). You also have to look at the calendar and the dynamics. The economy seems to be in the midst of an uneven recovery. Things are better than they were but not good enough. Some months it seems like we’re doing much better. Some months it feels like anything but a recovery. If this were a steady uphill climb, none of the polls would show Obama behind. If people were really feeling hopeless, none of the polls would show Obama ahead. But as a betting woman, I’m betting on Obama. And while I’m never confident (you should have known my mother, whose first words on every call were “what’s wrong”), I’d be a lot more nervous if I were sitting in Mitt Romney’s camp. Why? Because Romney just wrapped up the nomination. With the exception of Ron Paul, all the guys and gals who’ve been trashing him for the past year are now singing his praises. No one’s running negative ads about multiple-choice Mitt. He isn’t fighting for his political life every Tuesday. The donors who missed the first train are jumping on and trying to make up for it, and the ones who got on early are strutting and digging in a little deeper. Commentators aren’t out there wondering why he can’t wrap this thing up even though he’s the only guy on the stage who could credibly debate Obama, speculating about brokered conventions and the rest. You get two sure bumps when you’re running for president. The first is when you wrap up the nomination. Romney — at long last — is a winner. Everybody loves a winner. But he’s running behind in at least half of the polls out there, and the blue line continues to float above the red one in the averages. Romney will get his second bump at the Republican convention. But it remains to be seen just how smooth and successful that convention will be. I will never forget going to the 1992 Republican convention, working for a network, expecting to spend my week discussing Bill Clinton’s record on taxes and spending in

Arkansas, and instead watching in amazement as grassroots Republican conservatives turned the convention into what might now be called a tea party rally. It was wild. Could they really be fighting about whether Abraham Lincoln deserved to be in the platform or whether his reference to the “better angels” was anti-Christian? Was that Ronald Reagan trying to convince an unruly convention to be more tolerant? Was the Pope a Democrat? You can bet the bank on this: The Democratic Convention will be a celebration of all things Obama. Nothing will actually happen, of course, but it will be four days of tears and cheers and the best television the party that is loaded to the gills with the best people in television can produce. No one will say a word, not a word, from the podium without the approval of Team Obama. The president will get as big a bump as the economy will allow. If it’s a good month, economically speaking, it will be a very good bump. What the Republican Convention will be like is another matter. Romney will have to give good speaking spots to all his major opponents. They will say what they want to say. There will be talk about whomever he picks as vice president, and it will not necessarily be favorable. If he doesn’t choose a hard-core conservative, hardcore conservatives on the convention floor will complain. If he does go with a hard-core conservative, the convention-goers will respond better than the swing voters. There may well be a platform fight or two — or at least some dissension or questioning of whether Romney can live with his own platform. It will be much more interesting for those of us who talk on television, but it’s likely to produce a smaller bump for just that reason. This is Romney’s first big bump, in a very so-so economic month (okay, worse than so-so), and he’s not running ahead. The best he can sell is a close race, which suggests that it might not actually be close. If Romney’s going to win in November, he should be ahead right now. And he isn’t.

LETTERS My beliefs are based on years of working with people in poverty To the editor, Mr. Boutin, in response to your letter, all I have to say is that you just made my point. You obviously have no idea about poverty issues nor do you want to. You are content in your belief that people in poverty would rather live on $10,000 (or less) per year then $30,000 per year. You are content in your belief that people in poverty are there because they are lazy and want a free handout. The point of my letter, which you missed, was that many people end up in poverty due to circumstances that put them there. Once there it takes time to get back out especially when jobs are so scarce. In my letter nowhere did I state that I felt the rich should pay for the poor. I do, however, believe the rich should have to pay taxes at the same rate as everyone else and not be able to fall back on the loop holes in our present tax structure so they don’t have to. Nor do I think they should hide their money overseas so they don’t have to pay taxes on it. My beliefs and statements are based on years of working in low-income agencies where I actually interacted with people in poverty so I know what they go through and how they got there. Do you? And yes Mr. Boutin, I actually do care about all the children, elderly, disabled, homeless and sick that are affected by drastic cuts. Unlike you I at least know the issues of the people I write about. You, however, say horrible things and it is apparent you know nothing about the poor. I am a caring compassionate person. You made a point in your letter saying there was nothing personal in you remarks. However, then you proceeded to make it sound like I was looking for, or expected, a free handout and that I was not a credible person. But you do that in all your letters. You attack anyone who has a different opinion than yours and try to tear them apart and not very nicely. You also made it clear that you are a typical Republican who could care less about your poorer neighbors and do not consider them worthy of your concern. Not once in my letter, Mr. Boutin, did I say I was getting any assistance. So you just decided, and took it for

granted, I was because I said I lived within the poverty level. All I receive is my Social Security which I paid into all these past years and am entitled too. Perhaps you aren’t aware but you can be in the poverty level without getting any assistance. In fact the new poverty levels were just released for this year and you can look them up. You may be a little surprised. Why you tried to bring the president and Democrats into your letter rather then just continuing to discuss my concern was rather evident. You have made to clear many times you don’t like him or the Democrats. Yesterday’s news showed the Republicans have proposed cutting the children’s health program, thus taking 20,000 kids off who will no longer will receive preventative/medical care. It shows cutting the Meals on Wheels program for the elderly shut ins. And in case you aren’t aware there are many elderly people who receive these meals and cannot cook for themselves and this helps keeps them from having to go into nursing homes which are much more expensive. Shows more drastic cuts to food stamps and that means kids will be going without much needed food, as will many adults. I could go on and on about these cuts but you have made it clear you aren’t interested/care. How can you possibly say that “no human being of whatever political persuasion, color or creed intentionally wants to inflict suffering on any human being”. Sounds a little hypocritical! As a side note, your statement that “blacks will vote for Obama and whites will vote for Romney” is extremely racist. It is also very inaccurate. There are many Black Republicans who will vote along party lines. There are many whites who will again vote for the president as they did last time (Republican and Democrat). Electing a president should have nothing to do with a person’s skin pigmentation. You should know that and be ashamed of yourself for making such a statement. Shame on you! Nancy Parsons Laconia

LETTERS Only winners in the Ryan budget are the rich & corporations

We had a gem of a Town Meeting in Sanbornton on Wed. night

To the editor, Because the economy is important, we need to look long-term at the Paul Ryan budget plan. Both Representative Bass and Representative Guinta voted for it. Governor Romney has also endorsed it. In all likelihood it is what we will be facing if the Republicans are in control. The plan includes cutting trillions of dollars. The cuts are aimed at the poorest Americans but some are aimed at the middle class. The Medicare program will no longer be in the same form it is today. The reason for all these cuts is to reduce the deficit. Another part of the budget is to reduce taxes paid by richest Americans and large corporations. Among other factors, it allows companies to manufacture items in this country and then process the money so they do not have to pay taxes. These changes will raise the deficit and make the rich richer. The plan calls for large increases in military spending. This will not reduce the deficit but increase it. Please note that the reduction of government programs results in the loss of federal jobs and state jobs. The

To the editor, Only three of 45 attempts to rescind SB-2 have succeeded in New Hampshire’s towns, concerning the method of gathering to legislate at our town level. So 45 towns have petitioners who wanted to be rid of SB-2, once they had it. I learn this in an informative online article by Robert Eaton, town moderator for Rye, New Hampshire. He points out that 80-percent of voters don’t come to Town Meeting, so that getting those same to vote in favor of Town Meeting, once SB-2 put its foot down on a town, doesn’t work and is “no surprise.” He writes this as an October, 2009, article, amended in January, 2012. He observes that because SB-2’s deliberative session (replacing Town Meeting — but one can vote at Town Meeting and one can only amend at a deliberative session) has “far fewer people attending . . . an unintended consequence of SB-2 means that fewer, instead of more, people will be deciding issues critical to the town.” I just talked to Mr. Eaton on the phone. Rye has SB-2 now. He said their first SB-2 deliberative sessions lasted only about an hour. Now, as moderator, he pitches for attendance and has had a seven-hour deliberative session, which he feels retrieves some of the community feeling of Town Meeting. He prefers Town Meeting. So I applaud those who voted on May 8 in favor of Sanbornton’s keeping Town Meeting. SB-2 is an imper-

people who lose their jobs do not pay income tax. This should be factored in as we look at the deficit. Remember the trillions of dollars of cuts mean less money going to the states and less money going to individuals. Programs like Pell Grants, school lunches, fuel assistance, food stamps, housing assistance, Meals on Wheels and many others will be cut or eliminated. Charitable programs will be overloaded and education will take a “big” hit. We have all seen the results. The federal government cuts the money given to the state and the state cuts the money going to the towns, and the towns either raise the property tax, cut programs or both. In my opinion the Paul Ryan Budget is not good for this country. The only real winners are the richest Americans and the large corporations. The rich will get richer and the poor will get poorer. The middle class will dwindle in size and have a lower standard of living. This is not the way I want America to go. Please join me and vote Democratic in the upcoming elections!

Valley Fire Equip. gave Gilford honest information; no surprises To the editor, Open letter to the Gilford Selectboard: First let me commend you on agreeing to what Valley Fire Equipment has been saying since day one, that the Ranger Fire Truck should be replaced. Valley took quite a beating for giving the town a realistic quote during the process. I noticed in your minutes of April 25 it was stated that another repair company — which we assume was in reference to Valley — missed these items. I will direct you to our quote given to the town — which we did not have a opportunity to come up and explain on December 6, 2011 — which had all of these items included. People will say our quote was very high and I hope now you can see the justification. As Lakes stated in the minutes, because certain items cannot be seen until disassembly, our quote included the worst case scenar-

io’s, including a new pump if needed. That is the reason we stated the work would be time and material since you would have the worst case price, with the advantage of actual costs based on what was needed for the work to be performed. So I leave you with this thought: who really looked out for your town with honest information and no secrets or surprises. Please also note — considering we did this all after losing the bid for the new truck — we had no vested interest in the project and still kept telling everybody the truck needed to be replaced. You will notice that I have copied The Laconia Sun because it seems that nobody in your town wants to say hey Valley is not the type of company that certain people described us as. Mark Goldberg, President Valley Fire Equipment Bradford, N.H.

fect, frayed patch-job at this point. We kept it away for a thirteenth time. We would be trading up for an Edsel, if we got SB-2 in this second decade of the 21st century. We had a gem of a Town Meeting on Wednesday. Patsy Wells, moderating, had us lift our paper ballots into the air to vote, no shouting matches. That set a positive tone. Hearing Budget Committee member Jeff Jenkins’ explanation for giving our volunteer selectmen a raise resulted in that passing. If we had not had the explanation but were in the solitude of a voting booth (what SB-2 promoters idealize), we probably would not have given the raise. The raise was reasonable. The raise was just. Town Meeting was concluded by 9:30. Let’s remember to check the town website to participate in the emergency warning system Police Chief Hankard is arranging for those who want it, as we learned at our Town Meeting. And I will not forget the toned-to-be-funny story about the problem of GPS and Mapquest sending people to Steele Hill Resort via Rufus Colby road! We shared laughter and good community spirit. We applauded Ian Raymond for his diligent work on our Energy Committee. We applauded Steele Hill Resort owner Bill Cutillo for his donation of funds towards road reconstruction up that way.

Decision making on land buy would have been enhanced by SB-2

Come see what life at Taylor Community is all about

To the editor, SB-2 was sorely needed at the Wednesday May 9th Sanbornton Town Meeting as evidenced by a controversial $60,000 land purchase, which passed by only 11 votes. SB-2 would have benefited the deliberative process as follows: 1. SB-2 would have required that Article 8 be on the official ballot where 570 residents, the number of voters the previous day, would have had the opportunity to vote instead of just the 145 present at the meeting. 2. SB-2 would have forced proponents to make a more comprehensive presentation. Maps and drawings of “rights of way” and boundary lines would have been very helpful in making an informed decision, but none of these visual aids were used. As it turned out, proponents only had

at the meeting, vs. a simple majority of 285 of official ballot voters of the worthiness of their cause. I believe persuading the larger number would have required harder work and better preparation to justify the purchase. 3. SB-2 requires a 30 day interval between the deliberative session and the official ballot vote. With 30 days and abundant information, I believe a robust debate would have commenced between opponents and proponents of the land purchase to the benefit of all. It is impossible to predict the fate of Article 8 under SB-2, but I am certain there would have been significantly more voter involvement and discussion on an article that is probably going to raise taxes for all Sanbornton residents.

LETTERS Roadside trash is a major problem all over New Hampshire To the editor, It is a major problem, all over our state: trash along our roads, beer cans, soda cans, coffee cups, papers, plastic water bottles, broken class bottles, and so many more. The list goes on and on. We in New Hampshire live in such a beautiful state with lovely forests, mountains, rivers, lakes and even a seacoast, yet even on remote areas trash is throw by The Litterbug Society. I live on Shaker Road in Belmont and my road is full of beer bottles and cans, which are all over both sides of the road all the way up to Shaker Village. Pout Pond and the trails are full of trash, and this same problem is occurring in every other town. The parking lots are now even lacking trash containers and so unwanted garbage is found all over the place. Even used condoms are left on the ground for out young children to pick up. (Passion Litterbug Lovers). Like many folk, I like to fish and am

aid fly fisherman, and practice catch and release. When I am fishing I often walk around many of our rivers and ponds and encounter worm container boxes everywhere, forked sticks every few yards and you will often find the usual beer cans, etc. Although I am a fly fisherman I do not have anything against bait fishing, but please take your trash with you when you leave. I’m sure most people could say amen to what I am saying. Thank God though for the good folks who volunteer to clean up our city, trails, forest, ect. I watched high school kids doing a great job in Concord and also kids for Tilton’s schools doing an great job along the river trail in town. Lets all get involved like these kids and be proud of this beautiful state; keep New Hampshire clean, and set a good example that others may follow. God bless the U.S.A. William (Liam) McCoy Belmont

Focus should not be on making sure we keep our prisons full To the editor, An open letter to N.H. Executive Councilor Ray Burton: I just read that the decision about whether to go with private contractors for N.H. prisons rests with the Executive Council. I imagine that the idea of jobs and business in the North Country is appealing to you, but I hope you’ll consider the can of worms that such a project would open. What is our goal in imprisoning folks? Hopefully it’s rehabilitation. They will be joining society again at some time, and recidivism is currently too high, we’d like to see people released who have skills and motivation to succeed in society, not released with anger and frustration. So our goal is to get folks out of prison with skills, in the shortest amount of time that makes safety sense. What is the goal of Corrections Corp of America? It is to make money for their stockholders! A friend who is in an investment club said that this

stock was recommended because of its great returns. That would be because it kept prisons full and did what it could to keep costs low. What incentives do they have to do good rehabilitation? To provide education, job skills and drug treatment? Do we have two thousand people who need incarceration in the North Country? By the way, access to families is important as folks serve terms. And visitation is impossible for many at such distances. If you look at the penal system, so many are imprisoned because of offenses that are drug related, and related to a lack of education and skills. This is where our focus should be. Not on keeping prisons full to keep a contract with a for-profit company. This is only common sense. And councilor, I know you are a common sense kind of man. With hope for some sane thinking on this critical topic. Barbara Zeckhausen Laconia

University System Chancellor’s Office will cost more all split up To the editor, I e-mailed a copy of my letter about university system budget cuts to The Sun to some friends. I have a number of responses with answers to my questions. This one from a manager at one of their facilities was most complete: “Kent — I can’t speak to all the issues you raise, but I can tell you that eliminating the chancellor position for the University System will ultimately cost more money. Currently, that office serves as a blanket agent for the entire system. Without it, each of the colleges and universi-

ties would have to set up their own staffing to cover the jobs now taken on by the chancellor’s office. Considering we have UNH, Plymouth, Keene, Manchester and Granite State, that’s considerably more people to do the job handled by one department now. There is no doubt that all government agencies need to take a hard look at their budgets and methods, just as we as individuals and families are doing, but throwing out the entire system is certainly not the answer.” Kent Warner Center Harbor

Professor Sandy should present his columns as book reports To the editor, In response to W. Richard Doerre’s response to Leo Sandy’s column on parenting in Nazi Germany, Leo doesn’t usually apologize so I will for him. Leo hates bigotry. So I’m sure that he doesn’t realize that what he is doing when he disparages different

groups is bigotry. From Leo’s world view, in order to make sense of the evil that is in world he needs to make different groups into boogeymen. He has no concept of a world where all men have sinned, in which he shares, or the cumulative affect that sin in a see next page

Bruce Heald authors book on N.H. men who fought in the Civil War By RogeR Amsden MEREDITH — The Civil War and New Hampshire’s role in it have always held a fascination for Bruce Heald, who virtually every summer’s day for 40 years in his role as purser for the cruise ship Mount Washington had a view as the ship arrived and departed of the veteran’s campground built by Civil War veterans at Weirs Beach. In recent years Heald, a long-time educator who came to the Lakes Region in 1958 as music director for the Inter-Lakes and Ashland school districts and is now adjunct faculty member at Plymouth State University’s History Department, researched several collections of rare handwritten letters from Civil War soldiers from New Hampshire which form the basis of his recently published book about the war. Published by the History Press, “New Hampshire and the Civil War: Voices from the Granite State’’ is Heald’s 37th book and he says that putting it together was an enjoyable exercise. ‘’A lot of my books have been picture books for the Arcadia Press and there’s no real narrative. This was the chance to put a book together in which I could let the words of the soldiers speak for themselves while providing the background which would tie everything together by providing context,’’ said Heald. ‘’The letters were sent from battlefields, encampments, hospitals and prisons and they offer a personal and intimate connection with New Hampshire during the through the voices of its heroic sons,’’ he says. Heald lets the soldiers and sailors tell their stories in their own words by weaving together the letters to those left behind — families in Sanbornton,

Tamworth, Portsmouth and Nashua and sweethearts in Concord and Manchester. He includes brief introductions to each volunteer regiment, accounts of more than one hundred personal letters and an in-depth look at camp life. Heald says the Granite State has a remarkable record of service during the Civil War. It supplied a total of 10,657 recruits for the infantry, cavalry and field artillery divisions in 1861, with the majority of these first recruits enlisting for three years of service. Among the most complete records that Heald came across was the diary of Freedom Sanborn of Sanbornton, who enlisted with the 12th New Hampshire Regiment in August of 1862 and fought at Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville and was wounded at the Battle of Gettysburg on July 2, 1863 when a musket ball passed through his throat, shattering his windpipe and leaving him unable to talk. Sanborn’s diary describes how he was furloughed following being shot and arrived in Laconia on July 31 and then went to his home in Sanbornton, where he was still to weak to help his family while they were haying. He was discharged on January 1, 1864 due o the loss of his voice but by the end of that year had recovered his voice. He lived only until October 1, 1873 when he died of a heart disease induced by his military service. Heald, who served in the Marine Corps from 1954-58 and was a member of the active reserves until 1962, also served two terms in the N.H. Legislature from 2005 until 2008. He spent Wednesday and Thursday of this week at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point where he was invited to speak at history and engineering classes about his book on the Civil War.

YOUSSEF from page one County and Andover, Boscawen, Canterbury, Northfield, Salisbury and Webster, in Merrimack County. “I made the leap,” said Youssef, who said that he had eyed running for the House of Representatives for several years, but chose the Senate when redistricting created an open seat without a sitting senator. “It’s a big step,” he conceded, “but for me the timing couldn’t be better. I’m in a good place with a flexible schedule.” Youssef, whose father left Egypt in 1967 and was three times teacher of the year during a career at Lakes Region Community College lasting 25 years, graduated from Laconia High School 1994. As a teenager he had begun tinkering with computers and, after a year at Syracuse University and another at the University of New Hampshire, he left school to go into business. “The Internet was just becoming a big thing,” he said. Youssef owned and operated Microtech, an information technology company in Laconia from 1996 to 2000 before leaving for California, where he joined a software development company that stumbled after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

Returning to New Hampshire, he started Same Day Computers in 2003, with a shop in Belmont and steadily grew to seven locations, all but one of which he subsequently sold to franchisees. “I’ve always had a keen interest in law and politics,” Youssef said. “Recently my passion for it has increased.” Describing the Legislature as “politically glazed,” he said that he would seek to bring a “fresh business perspective” with a “strong conservative approach” to state government. Government, he likened to “big business,” saying “it can’t run with money it hasn’t got.” Youssef said that he would seek to trim the size of government by finding “alternative and innovative methods of funding necessary programs and eliminating unnecessary ones.” At the same time, he considered himself “liberty leaning” on social issues. “Government has gotten its hands into people’s private lives more than the founders of the country and the framers of the Constitution ever imagined. I want to restore people’s freedom.” see next page


charges on March 15 after a three day jury trial. Charges resulting from the same incident are currently pending against Tyler Twombly. Belknap County Attorney Melissa Guldbrandsen, who prosecuted the case, applauded the rapid response of the Laconia Police Department to the initial call and the work of detectives in investigating the incident. She also commended the work of the U.S. Marshals Joint Fugitive Task Force in locating and capturing McNeil in Maine so he could be prosecuted.

PENN STATE from page 3 time has gone by to prosecute, and they are to be enforced to not put people to trial unfairly.” Barb Zemlock, president of the Pennsylvania Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, said prosecutors should move quickly to withdraw charges they cannot pursue so that “all involved — the prosecution and the defense — can focus on the issues that are before the court, and not those that are no longer viable.” The failure-to-report charges under the state’s Child Protective Services Law are classified as summary offenses, carrying up to 90 days in jail and a $200 fine. Curley, the school’s athletic direc-

tor, who is now on leave, and Schultz, the now-retired vice president for business and finance, also face felony perjury counts for allegedly lying to the grand jury that investigated Sandusky. The perjury charges have potential penalties of seven years in prison and $15,000 fines. The perjury charges pertain to much more recent events, when the men testified before a grand jury early last year. Their lawyers are seeking dismissal of the perjury counts on different grounds. In seeking the date change, prosecutors said only that “specific and authenticated findings” led them to conclude that the shower incident occurred in February 2001.

from preceding page Youssef said he had spoken with George Hurt of Gilford, who lost the nomination for the Senate to Jim Forsythe of Strafford in the Republican primary in 2010. Forsythe lost his seat to redistricting and chose to retire. According to Youssef, Hurt considered a second bid, but decided against it. Meanwhile, Andrew Hosmer, the Laconia Democrat who lost to For-

sythe in the last general election, after announcing that he would run in the First Congressional District later chose to seek the Senate seat in District 7.

TERRIERS from page one Many have contributed, including one woman who wrote a check for $2,000. “They do have a multitude of medical needs,” said Gorham. Hernia repair, vision problems, dental work, as well as the more routine care such as grooming and spay and neutering, have created a considerable and unanticipated expense for the notfor-profit organization. The Humane Society has also fielded calls from many who are interested in adopting the dogs. One adoption has already been completed and a few more are pending. Because the dogs came from an unusually adverse situation, the society will perform home visits to ensure that the adopters can provide a suitable environment. Gorham said the organization is also looking for adopters who are knowledgeable about the specific needs of the breed. “They’re very busy, outgoing and smart. They need a certain amount of exercise,” said Gorham. In addi-

tion to exercise, stimulation and affection, the adopters of these particular Jack Russell terriers should expect to be patient with the dogs, especially where it comes to house-breaking them and teaching them how to behave in a home. “These dogs need some latitude in that regard.” Despite their challenges, Gorham insisted that the shelter would continue working with the dogs until each and every one found a home. Even “Napoleon,” who at 17 years old is the most frail of the dogs. Gorham said, “Even if he only has a few months left, why can’t that be in a home where he’s warm and comfortable, not in a crate in a garage.

BELMONT from page one tive, additional parking, construction of pedestrian walkways, improved street-lighting, plantings and trees, and water and sewer improvements. The town is now waiting for responses from the requests for proposals from potential bidders, Cormier said. The total cost of the project phase is roughly estimated to be $1.5-million, Cormier said. The town has already received some grant funds to cover some of the cost: a $220,000 federal Community Development Block Grant and $200,000 from a state revolving loan fund dedicated to water system improvements. In addition voters this year authorized the town use of a Community Revitalization Tax which gives selectmen the option of granting property owners in the revitalization area short-term property assessment relief to encourage significant reinvestment in their buildings. As shown in plans prepared the Hoyle, Tanner Associates planning and engineering firm, the project would involved constructing a new road to the right of the Public Library connecting Main Street and that portion of Mill Street which runs in front of the Belmont Mill. The section of Mill Street which currently runs from Main Street along the left side of the library down

to the Mill would become a pedestrian walkway and green space. There would also be improvements, including landscaping, to Fuller and Sargent streets, south of Main Street. Cormier said that because of the extensive construction involved with the project all of the Old Home Day events in August will have to be held outside the downtown area. He said the Old Home Day Committee is currently looking at Bryant Field on Route 106 or the Belmont High School field on Seavey Road as two possible venues for the Aug. 11 event which draws thousands of people who turn out for the children’s activities, parade, barbecue, and fireworks, among other activities. The improvement project also involves moving the town’s 103-yearold bandstand. Cormier said that the Revitalization Committee will consult with the town’s Heritage Commission before the historic canopied structure is moved. But he noted the despite its age the bandstand is sturdy and so it should be possible to move it without jeopardizing its structural integrity. Three public listening sessions have been held to get public comment on the project, Cormier said. He said virtually all of the comments from the public were supportive. “They see this as a positive move to given the downtown a fresh look and that will hope-

They brought “Tilly” home on Tuesday. “Tilly”, though only about two-thirds of a healthy weight for her breed and age, has quickly attached to her knew family, which includes another Jack Russell named “Stella.” The Stevenses have enjoyed introducing “Tilly” to her new life, which includes trips to the groomer, meeting new friends, riding in the car and playing with toys. “She loves being in your lap, kisses are free in her book,” reported Margaret. “It’s been like having a little kid, full of wonder.”

thire playful and affectionate traits. “That really shows there is hope for dogs that are kept in very bad conditions. They can survive that and have a good life.” “Tilly,” a six year-old, was the first of the bunch to have a taste of the good life. Kimson Stevens and his son Sam saw the story when they took their usual Saturday morning trip to Dunkin’ Donuts last week. They brought the newspaper home and showed it to Margaret. “I wasn’t two paragraphs into the story and I was on the phone,” Margaret said. After leaving messages on three different

In 2003 a federally funded study commissioned by the state concluded Belmont Village was a historic and cultural resource that was worth saving. Three years ago the Heritage Commission (which voters approved at 2004 Town Meeting)

recommended that a citizens’ group be formed to study possible ways to revitalize the downtown area. Interest in pursuing the downtown revitalization was spurred by a public design brainstorming session — or charrette — held in 2010. The following year Hoyle Tanner was selected to prepare the revitalization plans. — Mike Mortensen

OBAMA from page 2 finance director, said in a posting to the campaign website that “if you’re proud of our president, this is a great time to make a donation to the campaign.” Chad Griffin, an Obama bundler and incoming president of the gay advocacy group Human Rights

Campaign, said most prominent gay donors had been supporting Obama all along despite his reluctance to champion gay marriage. Most had already given the maximum contribution to his campaign, Griffin said. But he said Obama’s announcement had boosted enthusiasm among many gay donors.

JPMORGAN from page 2 organ had broken any laws or regulatory rules. He said the bank was “totally open” to regulators. The head of the Securities and Exchange Commission, Mary Schapiro, told reporters that the agency was focused on the JPMorgan loss but declined to comment further. JPMorgan’s disclosure Thursday recharged a debate about how to ensure that banks are strong and competitive without allowing them to become so big and complex that they threaten the financial system when they falter. The JPMorgan loss did not cause anything close

to the panic that followed the September 2008 failure of the Lehman Brothers investment bank. But it shook the confidence of the financial industry. Within minutes after trading began on Wall Street, JPMorgan stock had lost almost 10 percent, wiping out about $15 billion in market value. It closed down 9.3 percent. Fitch Ratings downgraded the bank’s credit rating by one notch, while Standard & Poor’s cut its outlook JPMorgan to “negative,” indicating a credit-rating downgrade could follow. Morgan Stanley and Citigroup closed down more than 4 percent, and Goldman Sachs closed down almost 4 percent. The broader stock market was down only slightly for the day. Dimon gave few details about the trades Thursday beyond saying they involved “synthetic credit positions,” a type of the complex financial instruments known as derivatives.

SHELBY from page 2 89 years old and he was still developing cars.” Shelby first made his name behind the wheel of a car, winning France’s grueling 24 Hours of Le Mans sports car race with teammate Ray Salvadori in 1959. He had turned to the race-car circuit in the 1950s after his chicken ranch failed. He won dozens of races in various classes throughout the 1950s and was twice named Sports Illustrated’s Driver of the Year. He already was suffering serious heart problems when he won Le Mans and ran the race “with nitroglycerin pills under his tongue,” his longtime friend, Dick Messer, former executive director of Los Angeles’ Petersen Automotive Museum, once noted. Soon after his win at Le Mans, he gave up racing and turned his attention to designing high-powered “muscle cars” that eventually became the Shelby Cobra and the Mustang Shelby GT500. “He’s an icon in the medical world and an icon in the automotive world,” Messer said. “His legacy is the diversity of his life,” he added. “He’s incredibly innovative. His life has always been the reinvention of Carroll Shelby.” The Cobra, which used Ford engines and a British sport car chassis, was the fastest production model ever made when it was displayed at the New York Auto Show in 1962. A year later, Cobras were winning races over Corvettes, and in 1964 the Rip Chords had a Top 5 hit on the Billboard pop chart with “Hey, Little Cobra.” (“Spring, little Cobra, getting ready to strike, spring, little Cobra, with all of your might. Hey, little Cobra, don’t you know you’re gonna shut ‘em down?”) In 2007, an 800-horsepower model of the Cobra made in 1966, once Shelby’s personal car, sold for $5.5 million at auction, a record for an American car. “It’s a special car. It would do just over three seconds to 60 (mph), 40 years ago,” Shelby told the crowd before the sale, held in Scottsdale, Ariz. It was Lee Iacocca, then head of Ford Motor Co., who assigned Shelby the task of designing a model of Ford’s Mustang that could compete against the Corvette for young male buyers. Iacocca often joked that Shelby was so persistent he gave him the money and Ford V-8 engines to build the Cobra just to get him out of his office.

Buchholz solid as Red Sox beat Indians 7-5 BOSTON (AP) — Dustin Pedroia had three hits and three RBIs to back a solid outing by Clay Buchholz, and the Boston Red Sox beat the Cleveland Indians 7-5 Friday night to snap a three-game skid. Will Middlebrooks hit a two-run double off Ubaldo Jimenez and Daniel Nava, called up from the minors Thursday, made a pair of outstanding defensive plays to help the last-place Red Sox (13-19) win for only the second time this month. Boston had lost 11 of its last 12 home games and eight of nine overall. David Ortiz went 1 for 3 and scored a run but left in the seventh due to a sore left heel. Ortiz was involved in a minor car accident on his way to Fenway Park but said before the game that he was uninjured. Buchholz (4-1) allowed four runs — three earned — and eight hits over 6 1-3 innings. He walked three and did not have a strikeout. Five relievers followed, with Alfredo Aceves earning his sixth save in eight chances. Buchholz, who had given up five or more earned runs in each of his first six starts this season, got off to a shaky start. He retired his first two batters but allowed a walk and consecutive base hits by Travis Hafner and Carlos Santana to give the Indians a 1-0 lead. The right-hander then hit Shin-Soo Choo with a

pitch and manager Bobby Valentine went out to the mound. Buchholz retired Michael Brantley to end the inning. Buchholz toyed with trouble in the second and third, but Nava made two excellent plays in the outfield. In the second, he came up firing after Jason Kipnis’ single to cut down Jack Hannahan at the plate. Nava was aided by catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who blocked the plate and tagged out Hannahan after he missed it. In the third inning, with runners on second and third, Nava made a running catch near the left-field stands to end the threat. Buchholz retired 10 of 11 hitters before loading the bases on consecutive singles and a walk in the seventh. Rich Hill and Andrew Miller closed out the inning, but not before the Indians cut the lead to 7-4. Aceves allowed one run in the ninth. Leading 1-0 after Santana’s RBI in the first, Jimenez (3-3) walked Pedroia and Ortiz and hit Adrian Gonzalez with a pitch to load the bases. Middlebrooks drilled a double into left field to give the Red Sox a 2-1 advantage. Pedroia doubled home Nick Punto, who singled to snap an 0-for-19 slide, and Ryan Sweeney to extend Boston’s lead to 4-1 in the second.

Bridge on Alvah Wilson Road will be closed for about a month GILFORD — Sheldon Morgan, Director of Public Works, announced Friday that Alvah Wilson Road will be closed to through traffic at the bridge but open to local traffic either side of the bridge beginning on Wednesday, May 15 to facilitate repairs to the bridge. Morgan said that motorists will be able to reach Sprucewood Drive from Route 11-A and the schools from Belknap Mountain Road. He said that signs will be posted on both Route 11-A and Belknap Mountain Road and police will be on hand to direct traffic.

Morgan anticipates that the repairs will take at least three weeks to complete and indicated the bridge could be closed for a month. He apologized for giving short notice of the bridge closure, but explained that the contractor only discovered the need for more extensive repairs after beginning work on the bridge. Rather than suspend work and return later, he and the contractor agreed the most efficient and least expensive course was to complete the project. — Michael Kitch

HUDSON from page one Jurors deliberated for three days before reaching their verdict against Balfour, a 31-year-old former gang member who was the estranged husband of Hudson’s sister at the time of the triple murders. Just an hour before their unanimous verdict on all counts, they sent a note to the judge that three jurors still weren’t fully convinced of his guilt. With no surviving witnesses to the Oct. 24, 2008, slayings or fingerprints, prosecutors built a circumstantial case against Balfour by calling 83 witnesses over 11 days of testimony. Witnesses said he threatened to kill the entire family if Julia Hudson spurned him. Balfour’s attorneys proposed an alternate theory: that someone else in the crime-ridden neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side targeted the family because of alleged crack-cocaine dealing by Jennifer Hudson’s brother, Jason Hudson. During the 30 minutes in which they called just two witnesses, however, they presented no evidence to support that theory. Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez, who spoke to Hudson after the verdict, said the star was visibly relieved. She said Hudson had been determined to attended every day of the trial out of a sense of obligation to her mother. “She told me, ‘If it was me (who had been killed) my mother would be here every day. So, I’m going to be here every day,’” Alvarez said. Public defender Amy Thompson said she would appeal the verdict. “It has always been our position and it still is that William Balfour is innocent of these murders,” Thompson said. Alvarez reiterated to reporters what prosecutors had told jurors: that the evidence against Balfour was overwhelming. Jurors told reporters afterward that their deliberations were thorough and cordial, and that Jennifer Hudson’s celebrity didn’t influence them. They said it took time to piece everything together, and that a key was cellphone records showing Balfour was in the area when the killings happened.

Lakes Region Real Estate Market Report / Roy Sanborn

Big sales on the Big Lake There were seven waterfront sales on Winnipesaukee in April 2012 at an average price of $2.15-million! That compares to eight sales last April at an average of $1.06-million. Five out of the seven sales exceeded the $1-million mark. Could the era of numerous big dollar waterfront sales be returning? The least expensive sale for the month was at 20 Olive St in Alton. This seven year old, 2,922-square-foot, four bedroom and four bath home is in immaculate condition and has three levels of bright, cheery living space. The main level features an open floor plan with an eat-in kitchen with stainless appliances, dining area, large living room, hardwood floors, and a great wraparound farmer’s porch overlooking the water. All the bedrooms are on the second level and there is a large family room, den and office in the lower level walkout. This home sits on a level .87-acre lot with 290-feet of frontage and an L-shaped dock. This home was on the market for 182 days at $975,000 before accepting an $850,000 offer. It is currently assessed at $689,000. Over at 13 Friends Point in Tuftonboro, a vintage 1920’s seasonal three bedroom, four bath cottage with 2,650-square-feet of space found a new friend to live there. The cottage is the typical rustic finish of that era with classic brick fireplaces, pine floors, and natural woodwork. I suspect the new owner was more taken with the breathtaking views from this level 1.75-acre lot with 400 feet of shoreline, dock, and breakwater. This home has simply amazing views and sunsets. I expect the buyer’s new dream home might be on the horizon here. This property was only on the market for 40 days and 40 nights which is a pretty good indicator of just how nice the lot is. It was offered at $3.1-million and closed at $2.2-million with a tax assessed value of $1.432-million. Spectacular… The highest sale for the month was down at 50 Whitegate Road on Winter Harbor in Wolfeboro. This home is a 6,059-square-foot, four bedroom,

four bath Adirondack that has all the classic features you’d expect; the requisite stone fireplace in the great room, plenty of natural woodwork, wainscoting, beamed ceilings, first floor master suite, lower level family room, and incredible detail and quality throughout. This home was built in 2006 on a level 2.6-acre lot with 150 feet of southwesterly facing frontage. There’s a U-shaped dock for the water toys and a two car heated garage for the Bentley. This home has been on and off the market since 2008 for a total of 548 days starting at $3.6-million. The listing was revived this year at $3.49-million and sold the same day at $2.84-million. A buyer in waiting I suspect. The property is currently assessed at $2.863-million. While there were no sales on Squam last month, there were three sales on Winnisquam, compared to just one last April. The highest sale was at 25 Bay Shore Road in Sanbornton, This 1930’s vintage, 2,589-square-foot, four bed, three bath contemporary has been tastefully updated. It features a spacious kitchen, a huge living room with a fireplace overlooking the water, four season sun room, a second floor master suite, and a comfy den. This home sits on a .18-acre lot with 100-feet of frontage and a dock. This property was originally offered at $595,000, was reduced to $549,000, and sold for $518,000 after 348 days in the market. It is currently assessed at $482,800. So it looks like the waterfront market is off to a good start this year and it is promising to see some big dollar sales, too!

Pooch Café LOLA

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll be deciding what to do about a certain relationship. Build on the belief that you’re better off with this person in your life than you would be without him or her. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re not always your own best babysitter. Enlist the care of others. The influence of someone you admire will keep you accountable to goals that would not be reached otherwise. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Explore your options, and keep them open. There are some conversations that will stretch on for months, and everyone will be better off for not jumping to hasty conclusions. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You have a big heart, and you’re ready to forgive, no matter how many times you have already. Relationships will be healed. Love and forgiveness will weave together like the entwined fingers of prayerful hands. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll deal with well-meaning and possibly clueless people. You’re just the one for the job since you’re so unfailingly patient now. And hopefully others will be wise enough to heed your low-key guidance. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 12). You have lofty goals and an abiding faith to match: Everything is doable. In June, you’ll be exceptionally lucky in love. People treat you the way you’d prefer without prompting from you. You’ll make the most of connections in July and will see lifestyle improvements in August. In November, you will compete and win. Gemini and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 2, 38, 14 and 18.

by Darby Conley

ARIES (March 21-April 19). With all that you’re learning lately, you can’t very well expect yourself to understand instantly what your next move should be. You’ll need to process an issue, and this will take time. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your instinct to sketch out your thoughts on paper will lead to clarity on a matter that’s been bothering you. Make a list of known factors, and then make one of unknown factors. You’ll quickly sort this one out. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your family structure seems to require constant tending lately. Luckily, maintaining relationships with a steady flow of supportive communication is one of your specialties. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ve been driving yourself hard. Soon this rhythm will become comfortable to you. But now it’s important that you make every effort to ensure that you get the rest you need. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll get a mixed bag of advice and will be slow to act on any of it until you get a gut feeling about how to proceed. In the end, as usual, you’ll only do what you decide you want to do. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll enter into a rather stuffy environment. You’ll have a way of loosening up the room. You are apt to share with others, and even those who are terribly shy will open up to you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Every choice comes with a tradeoff. Money, time and energy will be rather obviously exchanged, but that’s not all. Get tuned into the hidden costs that are difficult to calculate because they will add up over time.

In 1780, during the Revolutionary War, the besieged city of Charleston, S.C., surrendered to British forces. In 1812, English poet Edward Lear, known for nonsensical verse like “The Owl and the Pussycat,” was born. In 1902, anthracite coal miners in Pennsylvania went on strike.

In 1958, the United States and Canada signed an agreement to create the North American Air Defense Command (later the North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD for short). In 1982, in Fatima, Portugal, security guards overpowered a Spanish priest armed with a bayonet who attacked Pope John Paul II.

In 1992, actor Robert Reed of TV’s “The Brady Bunch” died in Pasadena, Calif., at age 59. One year ago: A German court convicted retired U.S. autoworker John Demjanjuk of being an accessory to the murder of tens of thousands of Jews as a Nazi death camp guard. (Demjanjuk, who maintained his innocence, died in March 2012 at age 91.) Today’s Birthdays: Baseball Hall-of-Famer Yogi Berra is 87. Critic John Simon is 87. Composer Burt Bacharach is 84.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, May 12, 2012— Page 23


Dear Annie: Four months ago, my wife of 22 years left me. She moved in with her parents, filed for divorce and said she is going to find happiness. She had an affair, and we tried to work through it, but she wanted me to heal according to her timetable, not mine. I have custody of our children, and she rarely sees them. When she does, it is all fun and games and no responsibility. We both work professional jobs. I have been through all the hurts and emotions and everything that goes with a divorce. I keep hoping she will come to her senses and return home. Since she doesn’t pay any bills or child support, she left us in a difficult financial bind. I recently met someone who is a sweetheart. But I still have a few feelings for my soon-to-be ex. Do I move on or wait? -- Advice Needed in the Midwest Dear Advice: See a lawyer and make sure your wife pays child support and has regular visitation with her children. They will need to see her, and you are entitled to the financial assistance. And while it’s possible that your wife’s desire to be irresponsible and immature will diminish in time, we see no reason for you to wait around unless she is willing to get into counseling and work on her marriage. It is natural for you to still have some feelings for her, but you should not be stuck pining away. Rest assured she won’t be doing the same. Dear Annie: I am the step-grandmother of a 7-year-old whom I consider my granddaughter. “Missy” does not have a relationship with her father (my husband’s son), although we have been actively involved with her since she was an infant. Missy’s mother subsequently had another child, now 3, with someone else. We recently were informed that Missy cannot visit us on weekends without her little brother. According to their mother, he “cries all weekend when his big sister is gone.”

My husband and I feel this woman is simply seeking a babysitter for the weekends. We have resorted to elaborate reasons why we cannot have both kids, but I’m afraid we’re running out of excuses. We have not seen Missy for weeks now, but my husband refuses to take the 3-year-old. What should we do? -- Perplexed Dear Perplexed: You may be right that Missy’s mother is looking for free babysitting, but the price of saying no is rather steep. She seems perfectly willing to keep her away until you acquiesce, so you might reconsider and “adopt” the 3-year-old, as well. Missy might appreciate it. You also could try working out an arrangement that doesn’t involve weekends, perhaps taking Missy out for ice cream on Wednesdays or picking her up from school. It wouldn’t be the same, but at least you would remain in regular contact. If there is any way to encourage your stepson to be more involved in his child’s life, that would be a positive move. And also look into grandparents’ rights in your state. Dear Annie: I can relate to “There’s a Lady in the House.” I’ve been married for four months. I, too, found out after the wedding that my husband cursed. I tried everything from kisses for good words to lovingly pointing out that I did not appreciate his bad language. One day I lost it. After hearing the umpteenth curse word come out of his mouth, I simply responded in kind. The look on my husband’s face was incredulous. I said I was tired of butting heads over his language and if I can’t beat him I might as well join him and speak on a level he can understand. Was it drastic enough? You betcha! It actually worked. That day, my husband’s language not only changed, but he now also appreciates me so much more. -- Still a Lady in Texas
