SB-2 again goes down to defeat in Sanbornton; Nickerson wins By GAil oBer
Unlike last year when the measure garnered 53 percent of the 60 percent it needed to pass, this year the SB-2 vote failed to earn a simple majority, failing by a vote of 352 against and 335 in favor. “Yes,” said longtime SB-2 opponent Tom Salatiello as Dick Gardner read the results aloud.

SANBORNTON — After what Selectman Guy Giunta termed a “spirited campaign”, SB-2, or the Official Ballot Act failed to gain voter approval for the 12th time in the 15 years since the enacting law was passed.
In a race that was nearly as close, two-term incumbent Selectman David Nickerson edged Town Moderator and former Selectman Patsy Wells by a vote of 348 to 316 in his quest for a third term. Nickerson said his goals is to see the “Y” or Lower Bay Road construction project to its
final completion. He also wants to continue to keep the town’s taxes as low as possible while continuing to provide high quality and efficient municipal services. He also said last night the Winnisquam Fire Station was of interest to him and he is see sanBORnTOn page 14
If community will cover extra cost is could happen in Sandwich in fall By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
MEREDITH — Full-day kindergarten could be a reality for Inter-Lakes Elementary School as early as the 2014-2015 school year, if the School Board and voters agree to a proposal. Board members gave the district’s superintendent approval to begin developing a district-wide proposal, and also gave consent for one of the board’s Sandwich representatives to begin pursuing full-day kindergarten in that town as early as the coming school year. Full-day kindergarten is thought by many to offer longlasting benefits to a child’s academic performance, especially those who might require intervention to address a specific shortcoming. The Laconia School District has already implemented full-day kindergarten throughout the district, and at a meeting earlier this year a Center Harbor see K page 13

they’re at it, the merchant members are hoping to purchase and install about 240 planters throughout the downtown area. The beautification effort will cost $13,500, said Main Street president John Moriarty, adding that flags are generally good for about two seasons of use. “They’re well beyond their acceptable life,” he said

Big 4 cellphone carriers unite for don’t text while driving commercials
NEW YORK (AP) — The country’s four biggest cellphone companies are set to launch their first joint advertising campaign against texting while driving, uniting behind AT&T’s “It Can Wait” slogan to blanket TV and radio this summer. AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sprint and T-Mobile will be joined by 200 other organizations backing the multi-million dollar ad campaign. The campaign is unusual not just because it unites rivals, but because it represents companies warning against the dangers of their own products. After initially fighting laws against cellphone use while driving, cellphone companies have begun to embrace the language of the federal government’s campaign against cellphone use by drivers. AT&T and Verizon have run ads against texting and driving since 2009. In 2005, Sprint Nextel Corp. created an education prosee TEXTING page 8

Philly abortion doctors gets life in prison for killing 3 babies PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Philadelphia abortion doctor convicted of killing three babies born alive at his rogue clinic dodged a possible death sentence Tuesday in a hasty post-verdict deal with prosecutors. Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 72, waived his right to appeal in exchange for a sentence of life without parole. Gosnell was convicted Monday of first-degree murder in a case that became a flashpoint in the nation’s abortion debate. Former clinic employees testified that
Gosnell routinely performed illegal abortions past Pennsylvania’s 24-week limit, that he delivered babies who were still moving, whimpering or breathing, and that he and his assistants dispatched the newborns by “snipping” their spines, as he referred to it. Prosecutors had been seeking the death penalty because Gosnell killed more than one person and his victims were especially vulnerable given their age. But Gosnell’s own advanced age had made it unlikely he would
ever be executed before his appeals ran out. Gosnell’s lawyer, Jack McMahon, said his client accepts the verdict and isn’t sorry he went to trial. He said Gosnell gave up a somewhat better deal early on but wanted to air the issues in court and is satisfied that he did so. “He wanted this case aired out in a courtroom and it got aired out in a courtroom in a fair way. And now he’s accepting what will happen. He’s an intelligent guy,” said see DOCTOR page 13
MOSCOW (AP) — A U.S. diplomat was ordered Tuesday to leave the country after the Kremlin’s security services said he tried to recruit a Russian agent, and they displayed tradecraft tools that seemed straight from a cheap spy thriller: wigs, packets of cash, a knife, map and compass, and a letter promising millions for “longterm cooperation.” The FSB, the successor agency to the Soviet-era KGB, identified the diplomat as
Ryan Fogle, a third secretary at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, detaining him briefly overnight. It alleged Fogle was a CIA officer trying to recruit a Russian counterterrorism officer who specializes in the volatile Caucasus region in southern Russia, where the two Boston Marathon bombing suspects had their ethnic roots. Fogle was handed over to U.S. Embassy officials, declared persona non grata and
ordered to leave Russia immediately. He has diplomatic immunity, which protects him from arrest. The State Department would only confirm that Fogle worked as an embassy employee, but wouldn’t give any details about his employment record or responsibilities in Russia. Some officials also referred inquiries to the CIA, which declined comment. see DIPLOMAT page 14
WASHINGTON (AP) — After weeks of debate and number-crunching, the Defense Department announced plans Tuesday to furlough about 680,000 of its civilian employees for 11 days through the end of this fiscal year, allowing only limited exceptions for the military to avoid or reduce the unpaid days off.
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, in a memo to the department, called the decision “an unpleasant set of choices” between furloughing workers or cutting training and flight operations. And during a town hall meeting with about 6,400 department personnel in Northern Virginia, Hagel was direct: “I
tried everything. We did everything we could not to get to this day this way. But that’s it. That’s where we are.” Telling the workers, he was sorry, Hagel said that after repeatedly going over the number, officials could not responsibly cut any deeper into training and other see DEFENSE page 3

Angelina Jolie admired for bravery after revelation of preemptive breast removals NEW YORK (AP) — “I hope that other women can benefit from my experience,” Angelina Jolie wrote in a powerful op-ed article Tuesday, explaining her decision to go public with having her breasts removed to avoid cancer. But amid the accolades for the film star’s courageous revelation, doctors and genetic counselors were careful to note that her medical situation — an inherited genetic mutation putting her at high risk of breast and ovarian cancer — was very specific, and that her course of action made sense for only a small category of women. Still, they hailed her bravery and said that she would surely help increase awareness — and thus, perhaps, help save some lives. “Having this conversation empowers us all,” said Rebecca Nagy, a genetic counselor who works frequently with women who test positive for a defective version of the BRCA1 gene, as Jolie did. “It’s wonderful what she’s done.” In a stunning op-ed piece in the New York Times, Jolie, 37, began by speaking of her late mother, Marcheline Bertrand, who died of cancer at 56, before she was able to meet most of her grandchildren. The actress revealed that beginning in February, she underwent three surgeries — which she succeeded in keeping secret from the public — in which her breasts were removed, and later replaced by implants. “I wanted to write this to tell other women that the decision to have a mastectomy was not easy. But it is one I am very happy that I made,” Jolie wrote. “My chances of developing breast cancer have dropped from 87 percent to under 5 percent. I can tell my children that they don’t need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer.” The actress also hinted that she might, at some point, have her ovaries removed, saying that she had “started with the breasts” because her risk of breast cancer was higher than that for ovarian cancer. She did not say how long ago she was diagnosed with the faulty gene.
While admiring Jolie’s straightforwardness, cancer surgeons and others in the medical community were quick to point out that hereditary cases of breast cancer account for only about 5 percent to 7 percent of all cases diagnosed each year. And those connected to the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes are an even smaller group. And so, women shouldn’t just run off and get tested for those genes, said Dr. Robert Shenk, medical director of the Breast Center at the University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland. “My worry is that people will be inappropriately tested,” said Shenk. “Awareness is great, but people shouldn’t just run in off the street and get a test.” Instead, he said, genetic counseling, including a close review of a patient’s family history, is crucial.
Nagy, the genetic counselor, who is also president of the National Society of Genetic Counselors, agreed. “The clues are in the family history. Has there been cancer in multiple generations?” she said. “Are there clusters of cancers, like breast and ovarian, on the same side of the family? Has the cancer been diagnosed at an early age — under 50?” If those factors exist, Nagy said, she conducts a thorough risk assessment with the patient. And if testing is warranted, there still needs to be some thought beforehand as to what one might do with the information. “It might not necessarily be surgery,” Nagy said. “It might be much more frequent screenings. Surgery isn’t right for everyone.”
DEFENSE from page 2 programs that affect the military’s readiness for combat. He added, “We’ll continue to search for ways to do better, but right now I can’t run this institution into the ditch.” Hagel said that the department will be evaluating the budget situation over time and will try to end the furloughs early if at all possible. But he and other officials also warned that while they will do all they can to avoid furloughs in the next fiscal year, they can’t promise it won’t happen. The furlough notices are expected to begin going out May 28, and workers will have several days to respond or seek appeals. The unpaid days off would begin no sooner than July 8, according to the memo. Officials said the furloughs will save the department about $1.8 billion. “I understand that the decision to impose furloughs imposes financial burdens on our valued employees, harms overall morale and corrodes the long-term ability of the department to carry out the national defense mission,” Hagel said in the memo. “I deeply regret this decision.”
J. David Cox Sr., national president of the American Federation of Government Employees, called the furloughs a slap in the face to civilians who live paycheck to paycheck. He said the department’s decision “to impose such enormous economic pain on its own workforce, while continuing to lavish billions in new and unnecessary spending on wealthy contractors, is utterly shameful.” Congressionally mandated automatic budget cuts initially forced the Pentagon to warn that the bulk of its 800,000 civilians would be forced to take 22 unpaid days off — one in each of the last 22 weeks of the fiscal year, which ends on Sept. 30. When lawmakers approved a new spending bill at the end of March, they gave the Pentagon greater latitude to find savings, and the furlough days were cut to 14. Under pressure from military leaders and members of Congress, the Pentagon will allow the Navy to avoid furloughs for tens of thousands of workers at shipyards. Civilians make up the bulk of the workforce at those facilities and are key to keeping production lines going and preventing major backlogs in the repairs of ships and combat vehicles.

Obama & Clinton won’t be destroyed by talking points On its face, the murder of Americans in Libya, including our ambassador, has absolutely nothing to do with the inappropriate relationship former President Bill Clinton had with a White House intern. But politically, that’s another story. The Republicans had a powerful weapon against President Clinton. But they couldn’t stop themselves. It wasn’t just wrong; it wasn’t just bad or even egregious judgment. They turned it into an impeachable offense and ended up looking worse than the president. Washington overkill, fueled by the bloodthirsty quest for bodies, ultimately provoked the public’s revulsion at such gamesmanship. The president ended up the victim. In those terms, Benghazi is deja vu all over again. No one doubts that something went terribly wrong in Libya. Mistakes were made. Security was, obviously, woefully inadequate. Those issues have been fully investigated — by no less distinguished a team than former Ambassador Thomas Pickering and former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen, who led an independent review board. No, the issue in Washington is not what went wrong with Libya. The issue is who tampered with Susan Rice’s talking points before she went on the Sunday talk shows. Who downplayed the “terrorism” part, and did they do so to make the White House look better? Was there politics going on in the editing of the talking points? Do they gamble in Casablanca? Yes, they do. And according to e-mails the president says were handed over months ago, e-mails the Republicans are claiming to be the “smoking gun” that will lead to the president’s impeachment and Hillary Clinton’s downfall, it appears that many hands took the pen to those talking points before Rice went on television. So, do Republicans really plan to impeach the president and destroy Hillary Clinton over who tampered with the talking points? Apparently, they think they can. On Monday, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., formally asked (demanded) that Pickering and Mullen sit for interviews with investigators from his committee. Pickering responded that he welcomes the opportunity to testify, but pointed out the obvious: He and Mullen had been charged with investigating security and safety at
diplomatic posts (real issues), not with looking into who tampered with the talking points. The two matters are “not even connectable, as far as I can see.” That’s because he can see straight. That’s because he’s not a politician or a talk-show host. Both Republicans and Democrats urged humanitarian intervention in Libya. When it appeared that humanitarian intervention triggered terrorism against Americans, that policy should have been subject to careful scrutiny. There are, almost certainly, many lessons to be learned. Pickering and Mullen and Hillary Clinton herself have already testified as to these issues. If further investigation of them is warranted, so be it. But it is an insult to those who died, and to all of those who are dealing with real problems in this country, to turn this into a Monica Lewinsky-like spectacle focused, this time, not on a blue dress but on the use of a figurative red pen. So Rice was put on television to “spin” the news. Isn’t that what everyone does on those shows? Is Congress really going to spend weeks investigating “spin”? Maybe I’m angry because I have too many friends struggling through hard times economically, with their health or their kids or their work, too many friends worried about real stuff, hoping there is some way the government can make things better, to have the patience for games I once found amusing to watch. Maybe I’m angry because all that these games accomplish — and the polls bear this out — is dividing us into our usual camps, right down the line, meaning that absolutely nothing gets accomplished, and people hate politics even more than they did before. But in the end, I’m sure of this much: Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are not going to be destroyed by the talking points. As for Republicans who are willing to risk their credibility on blowing up this scandal, that’s another thing. Bill Clinton is a whole lot more popular today than Newt Gingrich. You’d think people would learn. They don’t. (Susan Estrich is a professor of Law and Political Science at the University of Southern California Law Center.

Amazing: U.S. women have right to terminate pregnancy at will To the editor, Quite interesting that Ariel Castro will be charged with aggravated murder for terminating the pregnancies of the three captives in the Ohio kidnapping case. Even more amazing is the fact that women have the right in this country to terminate pregnan-
cies at will. Abortions are committed routinely in clinics and hospitals every day. How is this even remotely acceptable. The killing of a baby is, the killing of a baby, murder. Life is precious. Harry Mitchell Laconia
LETTERS Fire station should be much bigger priority than State School To the editor, First, I want to say how grateful I am to The Daily Sun and The Citizen for giving the public and its officials the opportunity to present their opinions, and the opportunity to inform the public of facts others may not be aware of. Without this input for anyone to express their views the public doesn’t always have the facts. My position today is to look at the purchase of the State Prison property, formerly known as the State School. This has been on the back burner for several years and still many questions are unanswered and reasons for the city to spend tax dollars for the property are few and indefinite. I will not at this time enumerate the steps taken, deadlines, etc. I will just make a few observations. Monday night at the council meeting, the last item to come up was a request to reinstate a bid to the state for this property. No new facts or plans were presented and it was decided to wait until the next meeting when we might have more information on just what it will cost to not only buy this property, but to get EPA funds to clean it up and then maintain the grounds, etc. At this time the Parks Department is overworked and undermanned taking care of all our new facilities and on the budget this year is money for a park at the Weirs. This too will demand maintenance and we have a $300,000 bond coming up to repair the Smith Track and this will require more attention. The additional acreage of the Prison Property will be another huge challenge or the addition of manpower and more money for maintenance. Let’s look at the EPA clean up. We received a memo from the planning director last night with the latest
report from Enviro Vantage addressing the projected costs of removing hazards and contamination from this site. It is estimated that before demolition of buildings, the cost to clean up would be anywhere from $175,000 to $295,000.00 for one building. There are 25 buildings and they averaged it to be $200,000 per building. This comes to FIVE MILLION DOLLARS. Further, there is NO guarantee we would get EPA funds. They allow up to $200,000 per site — no more than five sites per applicant. Supporters feel they can divide the property into five sites. Questionable. The city would have to be responsible for 20 percent of the cost. You cannot even apply for EPA funds until you own the land. In a non-public council meeting on January 23,2012 (minutes sealed for one year), it was decided to first protect the city, legally, from contaminants exposure, and second, in the event the city decided to go through with it, we needed this information to help us structure the offer. If we bought the property and didn’t receive EPA funds, we would have no such protection. Lastly, we are in the midst of budget deliberations and have received an excellent review from the auditors as to our financial stability. We were given a flow sheet which shows our bond indebtedness and included is room for new fire station and/or purchasing this property. The fire station is a priority necessary to our safety and has been on the list for several years. If we are willing to spend millions, should it be for our safety or for some unknown want.

LETTERS Many dogs out there who aren’t so luck and need a good home
Fact that lots of people believe something doesn’t mean it’s true
To the editor, Today’s thought for an editorial: An editorial is thoughts of one’s self with words of pinpointed views that others should or could consider? Maybe it is a process that one gets to in life that wants others to understand what we are writing about that is important to them. As a writer, I have many thoughts that I myself cannot keep up with and at times drive my husband crazy. Today’s view is one that I believe touches many lives and hearts of I know of. I like to discuss how animals affect our lives in ways that we sometimes just don’t know at the time. I, being an animal love my, spent my entire life growing up with dogs and later on having cats. The ideal animal in apartment life is a cat, since most landlords don’t appreciate dogs owners not cleaning up after them. Yes, we responsible pet owners pay for those who don’t take care of their animals. In later years, when we bought our house, we knew we would soon have a dog. There is a funny story, too, with viewing our house at the time. Our very dear friends who had their dog with them to see our future house and she is the real estate agent. Of course we loved their dog and the dog sat for them when they went on vacation and I must say that we loved “Bosco” right from the beginning. My husband says “come Bosco see your new house” — little did we know. He is loved and cherished as our other dog is and his name is “Buddy”. Bosco came into our lives to dog sit and we were happy to do but we knew our time was coming to close. We could not be without a dog so; Buddy came into our lives as we adopted him from the shelter and those two became the best of friends and stole our hearts. We now have our “boys” and they are a part of our lives that we could not see without. If we could have more dogs we would and we do what we can to donate, volunteer, and show our compassion with fellow canines alike. I share my story because many readers like us have stories of their own to share but those who hesitate to give their home to an animals without realizing how much love they give that is unconditional but, just happy to have a home where
To the editor, In response to Ms. Shealy’s referencing of Fox News and MSNBC, I would like to begin by reviewing accepted journalistic ethics and standards. While various existing codes have some differences, most share common elements, including the principals of truthfulness, accuracy, objectivity, impartiality, fairness and public accountability. Fox News, apparently Ms. Shealy’s prime source of news, is unencumbered by journalistic ethics. They are quick to break any rumor, opinion, half-truth, distortion or lie as “hard news.” As we all know, Fox News is the conservative alternative for viewers like Ms. Shealy who believe the so-called mainstream media have a liberal bent. It’s shows offer a steady diet of right-of-center commentary delivered with plenty of attitude and verbal sparing. Fox News is popular because it is entertaining, but it has little to do with objective reporting. This “news” agency is incapable of recognizing the very craft they’re supposed to practice. Executives of Fox News have boasted that their network aims to be “the voice of opposition.” What ever happened to “Fair and Balanced”? A former Fox News producer, Charlie Reina, described the Fox newsroom as being “permeated with bias.” He described how executive memos were distributed electronically each morning addressing the stories that would be covered and often suggesting, “how they should be covered.” “At the fair and balanced network no one in authority in the newsroom makes a move unmeasured against management’s politics, actual or perceived.” As long as Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes rule Fox’s roost, the network will be the last place to find “balanced journalism” –— it’s a megaphone for right wing propaganda.
they are loved and feel safe. Buddy is a rescue dog and, unlike Bosco he did not know the love of people that could love him until he came into our home. I put the truth out there that there are many dogs that are not so lucky and in need of a good home. Here so here is the caption of what goes on in the dog mind that is looking for a loving home: Rescue me please I am abandon canine who been lost and had several homes I am hungry for love and companionship My last owner hurt me when all I wanted was to play ball : Please rescue me When no one wanted me they sent me to the shelter And I was trying to be so good It’s scary at the shelter and although they all try to help us there is too many to care for So many of my friends are feeling sad too because we all wish we were the one going “home” today I wonder why people walk pass me as I gingerly wag my tail And wonder why I get sometimes overlooked I want the warmth of human a touch to nurture me The shelter survives on donations but we need more I try to put on a good show for those who seek to take me home But I am not myself I am smart and learn quickly I like to chase and sniff and help my fellow hunters I like soft playful toys and warm bed I like kisses and will greet so happily when come home If you had a bad day I will make you feel better You might have to train me for a while because I have been so confused for so long I will protect you and be your best friend I will make you proud Please rescue me Lee E.

In her statements that we “study the Muslim faith in our schools” and “Watch out America . . . God is aware and very patient. He will not hold his anger long”, Ms. Shealy exemplifies two of Fox’s favorite techniques — fear and the Christian God. With Fox there is never a break from fear: from Muslims, to swine flu, to recession, to homosexuals, to immigrants. The belief at Fox seems to be that when people are afraid, they don’t think rationally. And when they don’t think rationally, they’ll believe anything. Also at FNC, they like to portray themselves as one of “the people” and those with opposing views as an enemy of the people. The opponent is often referred to as “elitist”, a “bureaucrat”, “government insider”, etc. FNC, as does Ms. Shealy, will invoke Christianity. The idea is to declare yourself and your allies as patriots, Christians and “real Americans” and any one who challenges them is not. Basically, God loves Fox and Republicans and America, and hates taxes and anyone who doesn’t love the other three. Because they have been chosen by God to speak on behalf of all Americans, they perceive any challenge as immoral. Fox audiences, birthers and tea partiers often defend their arguments by pointing to the fact that a lot of people share the same views. This is a reasonable point to the extent that Murdoch’s News Corporation, as pointed out by Ms. Shealy, reaches a far larger audience than any other single media outlet. But, the fact that a lot of people believe something is not necessarily a sign that it’s true; it’s just a sign that it’s been effectively marketed. My criticism of Fox News should not be interpreted as defending any of the other news networks that also neglect journalistic ethics. L. J. Siden Gilmanton

LETTERS Rep. Burchell offers no solutions, he just votes against things To the editor, I have to respond to Rep. Dick Burchell’s letter to the editor published on May 10. The headline says that the Belknap County Convention “minority” has made the process with the Belknap County Commissioners as uncivil as possible. The real problem is with 12 of the members of the 18 member county convention. That is, 12 of the elected members of the New Hampshire House from Belknap County who will be responsible for costing Belknap County a lot of extra expense. They think that just because they agree with the ultra-conservative agenda to destroy local government, they assume they must be right. They give no credit to the commissioners for all the cost saving measures they have
put into effect in the past five years. They only worry about a nine percent increase without mentioning the past cost savings. They are out to destroy the morale at the county facilities. They seem to be bent on ending up in court and costing the county money. You can bet they will be pointing the finger after that happens. I urge all Belknap County voters to follow this story and watch their attempt to destroy local government. Rep. Burchell has a history of voting against budgets, against infrastructure improvements, against funding higher education. He offers no solutions; only votes against them. He and his cohorts of 12 need to be voted out next year. Steve Copithorne Alton

To the editor, I wrote a letter to the editor (April 13 issue) concerning the U.S. involvement in Iraq Iran war 1980) during the Reagan years. I made note of the FACT that WMDs were sold to Iraq to be used on the Iranians in Iraq Iran War. This caused Jack Stephenson and Steve Earle to call me a liar and a fool. I grew up in the old school where sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me. Steve Earle wrote on May 3rd that if I couldn’t take it, don’t dish it out. I can handle anything you can dish out, Steve. Now, my question to either of these
nitpickers is this: Where is your information that this never happened? Please give references with your answer so I can see what I was lying about. The letter written by Mr. L.J.Siden from Gilmanton was written in detail on the Bush years and explained what a war on lies and distortion looks like. Finally, as soon as I get a response from the nitpickers on references to how they determined me lying on sale of WMDs to Saddam, The war on Iran Iraq is over. Henry Osmer Hill
Great partnering make events like College Prep Night possible To the editor, Belmont High School PTO would like to thank the parents and students that attended our expanded College Prep Night on May 1. Feedback from the event has been very positive. Families surveyed stated that they left the event better informed about the college application process, standardized testing, financial aid, and financing a college education. Presentations by Dream Strategies and NHHEAF were fantastic! Thank you to friends of PTO that helped with food and drinks for our concessions and to Hannaford Supermarket of Gilford, the 99 Res-
taurant, and Applebee’s of Tilton for their generous donations. Part of our mission statement is to identify and support student programs to promote educational excellence. Such events would not be possible without the great partnering with BHS Administration and Guidance. We would also like to thank The Laconia Daily Sun and The Citizen for helping us advertise our event. Working together, we can all achieve great things!

Can’t put a price tag on smile brought to face of that veteran To the editor, There are heroes in our backyard serving those who have served. Last Saturday, Interlake’s Family Dental held a day of free care for N.H. veterans. Five dentists and a host of assistants and hygienists worked nonstop providing x-rays, cleanings, fillings, repairs, denture realignments, and whatever else these professionals do to keep the rest of us in good dental condition. Six veterans from the Bridge House Homeless Shelter in Plymouth were among the many who received excellent care that day. One Vietnam vet, plagued for years
with wobbly, dark-stained dentures, upon arriving back home grabbed my hand saying “Thank you (Interlakes Dental) I cannot thank you enough! I can talk to people... I can smile at people. This gave me back my confidence” For years he has worked in a grocery store but now looks forward to that work would a renewed sense of self-esteem and purpose. You cannot put a price tag on that. And his smile is beautiful! Thank you Interlake’s Family Dental for making a difference in the lives of our veterans. Cathy Bentwood RN, Director, The Bridge House Plymouth

LETTERS Meredith Lions trying to facilitate communication about services To the editor, In April, the Meredith Lions Club sent out surveys to non-profit organizations and service groups in Meredith, Center Harbor, Sandwich and Holderness. The purpose of the survey was to find out what services are needed in these communities as well as what kind are already provided. The turnout was just over 12 percent and most of the results saw a need for children and seniors. The participants were then asked to attend a forum to discuss the results and see what actions could or should be taken to provide needed services. The consensus of those attending was the major problem is lack of communication. Many groups are providing these services but they are not being made aware of to the public or at least to those who need it the most. The majority of these clubs reach out to a single focus group and forget the general public. Many house-bound seniors don’t have access to computers and/or the Internet where a lot of
information can be found. Many didn’t know that the library can have someone deliver books to them at home or even that Rite-Aid delivers prescriptions and other supplies to them. Another factor considered is “Good ole Yankee pride” and not wanting to ask for assistance when it is needed. It was decided that a clearing house is needed in this area detailing what each organization provides but to also find a way to reach the people who need these services. The Altrusa has a book at the Town Hall in Meredith with a list of many groups in the area and their information but accessibility is limited. The Meredith Lions Club is looking for assistance from all the groups in these communities to help us in setting up a plan to achieve a goal of reaching out to everyone with what we all do.

You’ve got to ask yourself one question: ‘Do I feel LUCKY?’
Richard C. Colby’s legacy continues because you remembered To the editor, To the officers of the Laconia Little League, its coaches, managers and players: Our family was very touched when we read about your expressions of respect, love and admiration for our father, Richard C. Colby, on your opening day. We grew up with LLL being a part of our family. We understood how much the game of baseball was his heart and soul. We saw the love that he felt for each of his players as he coached. We respected the way he would model and teach good sportsmanship to players and coaches alike. We witnessed the pride that he felt with each new development to the field and the Little League program. He was filled with anticipation and excitement as each
season began, looking forward to his first hot dog and the smell of popcorn in the air. We shared his happiness when he was able to visit Williamsport and witness the Little League World Series. He was honored and humbled when the field was named for him. It gave him joy to enhance the lives of children with his great love for baseball and Opechee Park. We are sure that somewhere Dad was enjoying the sights, the smells and the sounds as the kids marched proudly down Main Street and the first pitch was received into the catcher’s mitt with a slap. He is missed by many, but his legacy continues because you remembered. Thank you. Cathy Lines & Jeff Colby and their families

FLAGS from page one supplier. “Buying flags made in America is globally local, purchasing them from Trustworthy Hardware on Union Avenue is regionally local,” he said. The flags will be made of nylon, more durable than the previous polyester, and will feature red and white stripes that are sewn together, rather than red stripes printed on a white piece of fabric. Stars are also embroidered rather than printed. The flag poles will be longer than before, and aluminum as opposed to wood, so Moriarty thinks the new flags should have a longer life span than the previous, imported ones. The 80 flags will be installed on light posts throughout downtown. Joining them will be 120 barrels and 119 hanging baskets, planted with supertunia flowers mimicking the flag’s tricolors. The flowers will
be purchased from Petal Pushers on Parade Road, which is offering the organization a good deal as well as expertise on keeping the flowers vibrant. Moriarty said most of the funds for the purchases will be solicited from member businesses. However, the organization is also asking for help from the general public. “This is our whole town’s Memorial Day parade route. We want to make that statement that this is important...

This is a statement that shows that we care how downtown looks...

It will also include store displays, community events, social-media outreach and a national tour of a driving simulator. The campaign targets teens in particular. AT&T Inc. calls texting and driving an “epidemic,” a term it borrows from the federal Department of Transportation. The U.S. transportation secretary has been on a self-described “rampage” against cellphones since his term began in January 2009.

Senators hurrying to stop DRA from taxing restaurants on value of tips left for employees By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
CONCORD — The state has taken to hustling for tips, but yesterday the Senate Ways and Means Committee took steps to stop tax collectors including tips earned by employees in calculating the state tax liability of their employers. The committee, at the urging of the New Hampshire Restaurant and Lodging Association, unanimously agreed to prepare legislation that would reaffirm the original intent of the Legislature to exclude tips from the compensation component of the Business Enterprise Tax (BET) and forestall the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration (DRA) from requiring firms include tips when calculating their taxes. The issue arose earlier this year, when after excluding tips from collections for nearly two decades, DRA began informing businesses that they must be factored into their tax returns. Senator Andrew Hosmer (D-Laconia), who sits on the Ways and Means Committee and co-sponsored the measure, said that most of the restaurants in the Lakes Region he contacted were unaware of the issue. Enacted in 1993, the BET is levied at a rate of 0.75-percent against commercial entities based on the compensation paid to employees, interest paid to from preceding page hood the drivers showed risky behavior such as lane drifting or sharp braking, sometimes culminating in a crash. The unified ad campaign comes as some researchers are starting to say that while texting and driving at the same time is clearly a bad idea, it’s not contributing measurably to an increase in traffic accidents. The number of accidents is in a long-term decline, and the explosion of texting and smartphone use doesn’t seem to be reversing that trend.
creditors and dividends distributed to owners which together comprise the “enterprise value tax base.” In writing rules to administer the tax, DRA followed the statute, which stipulates that taxable compensation consists solely of payments made by businesses to their employees, by expressly excluding tips from the tax base. Among payments not considered compensation, according to the agency’s rules, were “tips to an employee in the course of employment by an employer provided that such amounts are not deductible expenses for the employer.” In 2008 DRA amended its rules to include most tips in the tax base. One revised rule provides that wages subject to federal income tax withholding as reported on an employee’s W-2 form are deemed taxable compensation while another rule excludes tips amounting to less than $20, which are exempt from federal withholding. Although the DRA changed its rules, it did not immediately enforce them and continued to advise taxpayers, in both its guide and on its website, not to include tips in calculating their tax liability. But, earlier this year businesses received letters from the Audit Division of DRA informing them of discrepancies between the wages they reported to the New Hampshire Department of Employment Security (DES) and those reported on their BET returns to DRA. The letters noted that tips accounted for the variances and reminded employers that the compensation element of the BET includes all tips in excess of $20. DRA proposed adjustments to tax returns, asking firms to remit the amount due by March 8, or, if they disagreed with the adjustments, to provide an explanation accompanied by payroll records for 2009, 2010 and 2011. The agency said that firms that failed to reply would be assessed with interest. Last week Senators Bob Odell (R-Lempster), Jeb Bradley (R-Wolfeboro), Lou D’Allesandro (D-Manchester) and Hosmer sponsored the amendment to House Bill 520, which would establish a commit-
tee to study introducing Keno, to exempt tips from the BET, which was heard by the Senate Ways and Means Committee yesterday. Melinda Cyr of DRA told the committee that she believed the original intent of the Legislature was to include tips of more than $20 in the BET, but since the rules did not specifically refer to the relevant section of the federal tax code, there was considerable confusion. “Some businesses paid tax on tips and others didn’t,” she said. After changing the rules in 2008 and conducting audits, DRA found the discrepancies between the BET returns filed with DRA and the W-2 forms filed with (DES). She suggested that excluding tips would lead to applying the BET, which was intended to tax all businesses uniformly, differently to different businesses, which could raise constitutional issues. When asked to measure the impact of excluding tips, Cyr said that the agency lacked sufficient data to offer even “a best guess.” However, she explained that in 2011 compensation represented $15.8-billion, or 5.9-percent of the total tax base of the BET of $18.4-billion. She assured the committee that DRA would forgive back taxes and only apply the new rule in the future. John Daigneault, an accountant with Leone, McDonnell & Roberts of Wolfeboro, said that his firm counted some 45 restaurants with aggregate annual sales of near $80-million among its clients. “Never once before February 2013 did DRA seek to tax tips under the BET,” he said, “because the tax was not meant to include tips.” He estimated that taxing tips would cost his clients about $75,000. Chris McDonough, owner of the Fratello’s restaurants in Laconia and Manchester and the Homestead restaurant in Bristol, estimated that tips amounted to approximately $1.1-million, or some 40-percent, of compensation at his three restaurants. He emphasized that “we have no control over tips because our customers decide how much to tip” see next page

South Down intramural squabble over how much land must be left as green space lands in Superior Court By Gail OBer
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — The governing body of the South Down Recreation Association is asking a Belknap County judge to stop the paving of about 1,400 square feet in the Gables Village — one of the many individual villages that comprise the gated lakeside community accessed off Parade Road. According to minutes of the Zoning Board of Adjustment that approved a variance for the project, the Gables received a variance in February to use an additional 10 percent of its open space for paving and private deck expansion. The association’s appeal of the ZBA decision also requests that the court issue a temporary restraining order against the Gables. Residents from the Gables said they want to be able to expand some of their decks and pave a portion of a gravel lot that is used for overflow parking because it is safer for some of from preceding page and questioned how he could be taxed on a transaction over which he has no control.” Jeff McLynch, executive director of the New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute, countered that state law allows employers to pay $3.27 per hour to employees receiving more than $30 a month in tips, treating tips as compensation to comply with the minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. Excluding tips from the BET, he said, would enable employers “to treat tips in two different ways, both to their benefit.” Speaking for the Restaurant and Lodging Association, Henry Veilleux explained that tips fall into two categories. Gratuitous tips, he said, are paid to servers by customers — not employers — in amounts they deem appropriate. Service charges, on the other hand, are paid by the customer to the business, generally for hosting large
its residents. There are a few homes that have one parking space and this would allow those owners to increase their individual parking. Those who spoke against the variance before the ZBA said it would allow all of the other villages in South Down to decrease their green space, that the people who bought homes in the Gables were aware of the green space restrictions before they purchased, and the runoff from additional paving would acerbate an already compromised storm water drainage problem in the villages that are below the Gables. According to City Planner Shanna Saunders, the SDRA is the governing body of the entire South Down development that is comprised of numerous individual villages — each of which has its own name, identity, amenities and governing board. The Gables is one of those villages and has 31 single-family homes in it. see next page
parties or events, then distributed among employees by the employer. Service charges, he acknowledged, are included in the BET because they are paid by the employer while gratuitous tips, which are not paid by employers, are not. According to the statute, Veilleux said, the tax base consists of “the sum of all compensation paid or accrued, interest paid or accrued and dividends paid by the business enterprise.” The intent of the Legislature to exclude gratuitous tips, he said, is clear. The rule treating gratuitous tips as compensation, he added, is inconsistent with the statute. While the committee agreed to proceed, Senator Jim Rausch (R-Derry) suggested that rather than amend HB-520, which appears an expendable bill, they find another vehicle with a greater chance of succeeding, most likely the so-called companion bill to the budget.
25-year Tilton-Northfield Fire commissioner steps down with blistering letter aimed at colleague By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
TILTON — After serving as one of three commissioners of the TiltonNorthfield Fire District for the past 25 years, Tom Gallant tendered his resignation this week, citing his differences with Commissioner Pat Clark and “the antagonistic tenor” marking the last year. Clark was re-elected to another term on the board in March. In a letter to the commission released to the media, Gallant said that it has never been “my willful intention to act as an impediment to the district,” then added that others view him differently. He noted that he considers his election to eight consecutive terms an indication that the voters believe he has done his job and done it well. However, Gallant continued, “what I am faced with and ultimately what the district is faced with is illogical people who have had and are having illogical influences on the district.” He said that the interests of the district have taken “a back seat and have become threatened by those who would seek to punish it because of a personal vendetta against Chief Ober.” He praised Ober’s leadership of the Fire Department, which he called
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, May 15, 2013 — Page 11
“second to none in the entire Lakes Region, whose accomplishments have been achieved “in spite of the tenor that has been set by the majority of the Board of Commissioners.” “With the re-election of Commissioner (Pat) Clark,” Gallant wrote, “it is brutally obvious that nothing will change,” adding that Clark has contributed to an atmosphere that is “not only unproductive but unhealthy.” He acknowledged his relationship with Clark is not healthy, professional or professional and that he could no longer be “a positive force” on a three-member board “heavily leveraged against me.” Resigning effective immediately, Gallant closed by remarking “it has been an honor to serve and I can assure you that I am not going away. I may not continue in an official capacity, but I will be present.” Gallant’s differences with Clark arose over the imposition of a requirement that Ober, upon being appointed chief, reside within the district. When Ober was unable to sell his home in New Hampton, a deadline was set over Gallant’s objections, and the chief, apparently facing dismissal, resolved the issue by renting an apartment inTilton at the eleventh hour. The two then quarreled over the preparation of the district budget.

Minutes indicate that when South Down was approved for development in the 1980s, there was a 80 percent minimum green space requirement. While that particular planning ordinance has changed, the SDRA says it was a condition of approval and was included in the deed restrictions put in place at the time of development.

LACONIA — Police are investigating the Saturday night/Sunday morning theft of a pickup that is owned by a local business. The truck was recovered in the Fireworks of Tilton parking lot early Sunday morning by a Tilton Police officer who was on routine patrol and thought the truck parked by itself was unusual. The officer ran the plate and learned it was registered to Laconia Ice Company. When Laconia and Tilton Police contacted the driver of the truck after it was recovered was when the victim first learned it had been stolen. Tilton Police said Monday that they don’t know why the truck was stolen from Laconia and dumped the same night in Tilton but said there have

DOCTOR from page 2 McMahon, who said Gosnell would now plead to federal drug charges that are still pending. The sentencing deal, reached after hours of terse negotiations, spares Gosnell’s family the task of pleading for his life in court, McMahon said. Gosnell has six children, the youngest of them a teenager born to his third wife, who has also pleaded guilty in the case. “He’s a proud man. To bring his young family into court was something he did not want to do,” McMahon said. Gosnell was instead sentenced Tuesday to two life sentences for two of the infant deaths. He faces a mandatory third life term Wednesday in the third death, when he will also be formally sentenced in the overdose death of a patient and hundreds of lesser charges. A 2011 grand jury investigation into Gosnell’s alleged prescription drug trafficking led to the gruesome findings about his abortion clinic. An FBI raid had turned up 47 aborted fetuses stored in clinic freezers, jars of tiny severed feet, bloodstained furniture and dirty medical instruments, along with cats roaming the premises. Prosecution experts said one teen was nearly 30 weeks pregnant when Gosnell aborted her fetus, and then allegedly joked the baby was so big it could “walk to the bus.” A second baby was said to be alive for about 20 minutes before a clinic worker snipped the neck. A third was born in a toilet and was moving before another clinic employee severed the spinal cord, according to testimony. from preceding page Director McAlister said, “Chief Eastman has a versatile Corrections background and is knowledgeable and experienced about the offender supervision and public safety needs in New Hampshire’s Lakes Region. She will be a positive asset in her new role as Chief.” Eastman is responsible for managing an office of five employees which supervises over 450 offenders on probation, parole, and other community-based supervision.
Newman resigns as Lakes Region Casino manager
BELMONT — Citing irreconcilable differences with ownership, Rick Newman has severed all ties with the Lakes Region Casino, ending a relationship with the venue that began in 1994. Newman said yesterday that he resigned his position as general manager and divested his interest in Casablanca Casino, LLC, which operates the charitable gaming at Lakes Region Casino, after finding himself at odds with the owner of the business, Craig Potts of Scottsdale, Arizona over operations. Newman, who maintains a lobbying operation Concord, said that he would no longer represent the casino before the Legislature. In 1994, Newman registered as a lobbyist for what was then Lakes Region Greyhound Park, owned by the
Hart family. Amid allegations of illicit gambling, the Harts surrendered their license and the track closed in 2005. A year later, when the venue was purchased by Marlin Torguson of the Torguson Gaming Group of Biloxi, Mississippi, Newman became general manager. Potts, an investor in the enterprise, acquired the business in 2011, retaining Newman as general manager. During Newman’s tenure, what was a pari-mutuel gaming venue with live greyhound and simulcast thoroughbred racing, became a home for charitable gaming featuring fine dining and live entertainment. When greyhound racing was outlawed in New Hampshire, the track was converted to an arena for moto-cross. — Michael Kitch
KINDERGARTEN from page one parent who works in the Laconia district wondered why her child couldn’t access the same benefits at Inter-Lakes Elementary. Howard Cunningham, a board member from Sandwich, asked at last night’s meeting if any other board members would object to his exploration of expanding the kindergarten day at Sandwich Central School, providing he could arrange to have any additional expenses paid for through either private donations or what he called “Sandwich community funds.” “Full-day kindergarten, and some degree of support for pre-school children, might help us retain younger families,” Cunningham said. The out-migration of young families is an issue for the region, he said, arguing that a full day of kindergarten, as opposed to the conventional half day, might give parents a reason to raise their children in the Inter-Lakes district. “Full-day kindergarten uncomplicates the lives of parents to a large extent,” he said. “I think it’s time that the Inter-Lakes School District as a whole
undertakes the question of full-day kindergarten,I would hope it’s something we could implement in the next budget cycle.” Offering full-day kindergarten in Sandwich is a relatively inexpensive proposal as the small school utilizes multi-age classrooms. The kindergartners share a classroom and a teacher with first graders, so having them stay for the entirety of the school day represents little extra cost as opposed to having them leave at mid-day — the teacher is already working a full school day. At the larger Inter-Lakes Elementary in Meredith, the change could require the hiring of additional personnel. Cunningham’s suggestion prompted only murmurs of support, with no board members objecting. Chair Richard Hanson said, “I’m not hearing any concerns... this is something we should be considering, I agree.” Upon hearing the board’s reaction, Superintendent Mary Ellen Ormond said she would gladly begin working with administrators to put together a proposal to offer full-day kindergarten for every see next page

Rays’ Moore picks up 7th win, TB beats Red Sox 5-3 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Tampa Bay’s Matt Moore pitched six strong innings and beat the Boston Red Sox 5-3 Tuesday night to remain unbeaten and claim a share of the major league lead in victories. Moore (7-0) yielded a double to Dustin Pedroia and a three-run homer to David Ortiz in the first, then limited the struggling Red Sox to one hit over the next five innings. The Rays overcame the early deficit with a fiverun fifth off John Lackey (1-4). Jose Molina and Matt Joyce each drove in two runs in the inning, helping Tampa Bay extend its winning streak to a season-high six games. Boston has lost six of seven, including three straight. Moore allowed three hits, walked two and struck out eight. The 23-year-old left-hander tied Washington’s Jordan Zimmerman for the major league lead in victories, became the first Tampa Bay starter to begin a season 7-0 and tied a club record by winning his eighth straight decision dating to September. Relievers Jake McGee, Josh Lueke and Joel Peralta got the Rays to the ninth, and closer Fernando Rodney struck out the side to finish the combined three-hitter and earn his seventh save.
Ortiz’s homer was his fifth this season and 27th of his career at Tropicana Field, the most by any opposing player. The designated hitter’s 67 RBIs at the Trop are second to Manny Ramirez’s 72. Moore settled after the home run to retire 12 in a row until Stephen Drew doubled off the right field wall with one out in the fifth for Boston’s third hit. Lackey breezed through the first two innings before having to work through a tight spot in third, when Tampa Bay loaded the bases with two outs but did not score. The Red Sox weren’t as fortunate in the fourth, when the Rays turned five singles and Luke Scott’s RBI double into five runs. Molina’s two-run single made it 3-3, and Boston first baseman Mike Napoli misjudged a Joyce’s infield pop fly that dropped for a two-run single that gave Moore a 5-3 lead. Lackey, making his 299th career start and 300th major league appearance overall, allowed five runs and nine hits in 4 1-3 innings. He walked one and struck out three in losing his third straight decision. Despite not having a hit after the fifth inning, the Red Sox managed to put the potential tying runs on base in the seventh when Drew and Jacoby Ellsbury before Shane Victorino lined out to end the threat.
DIPLOMAT from page 2 Fogle was the first American diplomat to be publicly accused of spying in Russia in about a decade. While relations between the two countries have been strained, officials in both Washington and Moscow sought to play down the incident. The Russian Foreign Ministry summoned U.S. Ambassador Michael McFaul to appear Wednesday in connection with the case. McFaul said he would not comment on the spying allegation. Russian officials expressed indignation the U.S. would carry out an espionage operation at a time when the two countries have been working to improve counterterrorism cooperation. “Such provocative actions in the spirit of the Cold War do nothing to strengthen mutual trust,” the Foreign Ministry said. Russia’s Caucasus region includes the provinces of Chechnya and Dagestan. The suspects in the April 15 Boston Marathon bombings — Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his elder brother, Tamerlan, who was killed in a manhunt — are ethnic Chechens. Tamerlan spent six months last year in Dagestan, now the center of an Islamic insurgency.
U.S. investigators have been working with the Russians to try to determine whether Tamerlan Tsarnaev had established any contacts with militants in Dagestan. Despite the end of the Cold War, Russia and the United States still maintain active espionage operations against each other. Last year, several Russians were convicted in separate cases of spying for the U.S. and sentenced to lengthy prison sentences. But Tuesday’s case had espionage elements that seemed more like “Spy vs. Spy” than Ludlum and le Carre.

Good Friends are Good for Your Health “Good friends are good for your health.” This headline statement made recently by the Mayo Clinic sums up the importance of seniors staying engaged and involved with others as an essential component of staying healthy and happy. “Human beings are social creatures. Our lives are improved by the quantity and quality of our relationships and interactions with others” according to the latest report from MetLife Mature Market Institute. The report goes on to point out that “A community that fosters these interactions by creating a meaningful and livable environment for all residents will reap the benefits.”
Tim Martin, president and CEO of Taylor Community, echoes the critical importance of the social interaction. “Whether you’re talking about a retirement community or the greater Lakes Region community we’re all a part of, being with others, making friends and staying active and involved ends up being most important in seniors’ happiness, and in fact, their health.” Research shows that one of the key drivers for senior resident satisfaction is the ease of making new friends. Martin explained, “Seniors look at important things like cost, services, and accommodations as they age, downsize and make see page 20

Help a Loved One Stay Independent Spring Cleaning Tips After a Muscle Disease Diagnosis Don’t fall into the trap of doing everything for that person Helping a loved one diagnosed with muscle disease such as ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) remain as independent as possible is one of the greatest gifts you can give as a caregiver. As the disease progresses and loss of function begins to occur, it is easy to fall into the trap of doing everything possible for the person. However, although muscle disease may rob someone of typical movement, it does not rob them of their spirit. A family care-
giver can help rather than hinder independence by following these tips: Be patient.Independence for a person with muscle disease can be slow and painstaking at times. Sometimes it seems faster and easier for caregivers to do it themselves. Be collaborative. Remember that people with muscle disease are capable adults even if they can’t communicate clearly. Through whatever means possible, discuss choices,
make joint decisions and defer to the person’s wishes in decisions regarding their medical care. Ask if the person wants help before helping. Don’t take over tasks that still can be performed if the person is given adaptive devices and time. Let the person use your hands. When a person with muscle disease needs help with something, it can be very frustrating to have a helper take over the task see page 21

The yard has been raked. The windows are washed. As you begin to think about where to store the 2012 tax return you just submitted, consider keeping it an estate planning notebook and making an estate plan review part of your spring cleaning routine. An estate planning notebook is a great tool for staying organized and streamlining the process of gathering your documents. A simple threeringer binder with tabs can be
a resource for an agent or trustee to locate your important papers and accounts, and items can easily be removed when they no longer pertain. It should be updated every year, so your annual tax filing is a great reminder to keep it current. Care should be taken to keep original documents in a fire-safe location, and this compilation of personal information is appropriately secure. Suggested categories of inforsee page 18

Asking the Right Question: Can My Loved One Continue to Live at Home? Making the decision to place a loved one in an Assisted Living community is a difficult one, and it almost always starts with a single question: Can my loved one continue to live at home? Try asking yourself this question, instead: “Should my loved one continue to live at home?” Sometimes people work very hard to keep their parent or spouse living with physical challenges or memory loss at home for as long as possible. But that may not always be best. Studies show that people better maintain cognitive function when they are exposed to mental stimulation. Proper medication management, eating a healthy, balanced diet, socialization, and reducing the stress in a person’s life can also cause dramatic changes in their physical and mental health. High quality Assisted Living communities offer all of this and more. They offer Residents the
opportunity to live with dignity; to have friends and new experiences. They allow families to hand off caregiving responsibilities, going back to just being families, who can enjoy one another without the stress or friction that sometimes comes with the caregiver relationship. They offer families peace of mind. It’s a common misconception that people should wait until they absolutely must move before moving into an Assisted Living community. The truth is, people who make the move when they are more able to form relationships and make independent choices tend to adapt much more easily than those who are more advanced in their decline. At Forestview Manor, many of our happiest Residents are our most independent Residents—who, for the most part, were adamant when their families made this choice that they did NOT want to live in a

To Age Successfully Into Your Nineties You Need a Purpose
Some people say they can’t wait for retirement so they can sit around and do nothing. Some people never want to retire because they can’t imagine what they would do with all that time. There has never been a time when more people are living into their nineties. But if one lives to be ninety-five years old and does not have quality of life, then many would agree there is no point. Over these last few decades, through a number of studies, we have learned that there are several components to aging well. By staying intellectually challenged, physically active, socially connected and spiritually involved in whatever way is meaningful to an individual, and if one can avoid disease, you can age well and successfully into your nineties. We also know that having a purpose and finding fulfillment, will enhance that life journey. The folks at Wesley Woods are finding that purpose. Some are retired, some are still working, all are finding fulfillment and fun living in the friendly neighborhood that is Wesley Woods. What they are doing a lot of, is volunteering
in whatever way has meaning to them. vol·un·teer [vol-uhn-teer] noun 1. a person who voluntarily offers himself or herself for a service or undertaking. 2. a person who performs a service willingly and without pay. For instance, our resident flag aficionado, technically called a vexillologist, and his wife, are volunteers for the Historical Society and the Squam Lake Science Center. Another couple, whose fabulous quilt work you have already heard about, both volunteer for VNA Health and Hospice. Several folks volunteer with Hands Across the Table. Many volunteer at their own or another church, often daily. One couple who moved from New York, in addition to their volunteer work with Hands Across the Table, continue to be part of the large network supporting the victims from Sept 11th where they lost a son-inlaw who was a firefighter. Two residents are often found volunteering at the Gilford library. And that is just the list of folks we know about. We also know that others are out all day, taking see page 21

As we age we may find it more difficult to make new friends from page 15
changes in their retirement living. But at the end of the day, it’s all about relationships with people, getting together, having fun, and not being lonely or bored.” Whether you live in a retirement community or in your own home, friendship and community become increasingly important. The good news for seniors living in the Lakes Region is that the opportunities are endless. “The reality is that there are a wealth of local options for seniors to be involved, engaged and entertained,” said Paul Charlton, marketing director at Taylor. “Right here on our Laconia campus we have music concerts, programs presented by the NH Humanities Council, speakers and presenters from UNH, Plymouth State University, Lakes Region Community College, trips, activities and events of all kinds and most of these are open to the public at no charge. Regular readers of the Daily Sun are informed of many and varied opportunities to join others for interesting, informative, rewarding and entertaining activities. Charlton noted that he thinks Laconia
is sometimes unfairly categorized as a town that offers little to do for seniors and people of all ages. “Nothing could be further from the truth! I am amazed at all there is going on at area churches, libraries, historical societies, museums, civic groups, fitness clubs, local farms, restaurants, Meadowbrook, Gunstock, the Friendship Club, Belknap Mill, LRGH, the Humane Society, Chamber of Commerce, the Wow Trail, Laconia Adult Education, Lakes Region Community College, and Senior Centers. The list goes on and on,” Charlton said. “It’s not a matter of seniors not having choices,” explains Taylor Community activity director Carol Warren. “But the important choice for seniors to make is to take the steps to connect with others. That’s much easier to do living in a retirement community, but seniors anywhere can participate and be involved as much as they want”. There’s no question that that we enjoy making new friends, but as we age we may find it more difficult. These senior tips published on Yahoo Voices for making new friends may help you
to get your old skills back in gear and develop the friendships you want. Recognize the importance of friendship. It’s very easy to take friendships for granted, right up until the moment when a friendship is lost. As we experience the void left by a friend who has moved away, we begin to see how very important friendship is in our lives. The presence of friends provides us with companionship, conversation, and caring. Without friends we can survive but the quality of life is definitely diminished. Acknowledging the importance of friends is the first and perhaps most important senior tip for making new friends. Be ready to put yourself where the action is. Knowing how important friends are is important but that knowledge is only useful if you act on it. Sitting in your home, cottage or apartment waiting for something wonderful to happen to or for you isn’t likely to bring a swarm of new friends to your door. A second important senior tip for making new friends is to put yourself where the action is.
This can mean signing up for things, joining things, being part of community activities. You don’t have to do everything, but if you want to make friends it’s important to join activities where you can meet others in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. Listen with compassion. Most human beings like to have an attentive audience. Making friends often means demonstrating that you have the capacity to look beyond your own problems or personal difficulties and extend yourself as a compassionate listener to meet the needs of someone else. There is simply no quicker way to make a friend, as the saying goes, than to be one. But listening with compassion is not easy. It requires patience, fortitude and the ability to put yourself in the other’s place. Don’t be afraid to share. There are lots of seniors who make it their business to be as compassionate and as caring as they can be and it truly does help them to begin friendships, but in most cases, if you want your friendships to develop and deepen, a good senior tip for making new friends is - don’t
be afraid to share. Sharing is meant not just as loaning a sweater or dividing a dessert, but reaching down deep and sharing yourself. Keep in touch. Knowing the importance of friendships will help you to get started. Putting yourself where the action is will allow you to meet folks. Infusing your relationships both with compassion and with a modest sharing of who you are can help to build friendships. But if you really want to maintain new friendships once they have been started, it’s crucial to stay in touch with your friends. There is no replacement in this world for friendship. As seniors sometimes we need to remember that, like anything worthwhile, making new friends takes work. Following these senior tips can get you off in the right direction.

and do it his or her way. He/ she doesn’t need a caregiver’s brain to plan things, just a pair of willing hands. Obtain adaptive devices as needed so he or she can continue to use the computer for entertainment and social interaction as well as for household chores such as paying bills, tracking down information, hiring services, and grocery shopping. Use adaptive devices and new strategies to perform tasks. For example, rearrange household objects or furniture and change the way a task is done (i.e., sliding something rather than carrying it). Keep in mind that using an adaptive device such as a wheelchair is a move toward independence rather than away from it. It is also important to keep in mind the various forms of treatment that can help a loved one stay strong and independent for as long
as possible. For example, a physician directed exercise program along with physical and occupational therapy can help a person stay strong and make the most of the abilities he/she still has. Speech therapy can help keep the ability to talk after problems with speech begin. A wide variety of supportive devices and assistive equipment can help a person stay mobile, communicate, and perform daily tasks such as bathing, eating, and dressing. Braces can support the feet, ankles, or neck. Additionally, there are medicines that can help relieve symptoms, help bolster coping skills and keep the person comfortable. Home Care Can Help The toughest — and most rewarding — part of your job may be figuring out how to help your loved one still feel in control of his or her life, even if you do not feel prepared or capable when increasingly more care is needed.

Elmer Riemer 95 years, Concord, NH “The comparison with living in my daughter and son-in-law’s home versus a nursing home is that here I have the option to choose how I live and the things I can do. I feel it is so easy for me to absorb love from my family now that I’m here, than it was in the nursing home. I am happy with the treatment I receive from the ladies at Sanctuary Home Health Nursing. They make it possible for my daughter to go to work during the day and for me to get the assistance I need.”
There’s just no place like home. Most who are faced with care needs agree.
The latest surveys report that when frailty, illness or injury occurs, staying at home is preferred by most people who need recuperative or long-term care.
Live Free Home Health Care offers top quality care and support for a wide range of needs that can make remaining in the comfort of home a viable option for the short or long term.

GILFORD — It won’t be the “Same Ol’ Situation” this Friday, May 17 when Mötley Crüe takes the stage at the newly expanded and newly named, Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion at Meadowbrook to open the 2013 Eastern Propane Concert Series This quartet of rock royalty makes its debut appearance at Meadowbrook and it’s the perfect way to open a new season at the newly upgraded venue. Joining Motley Crue will be special guest, Hinder. Tickets are still available and range from $39.75 to $106. To order, call (603) 293-4700 or log on to www.BankNHpavilion.com. Mötley Crüe first catapulted into public view in 1981, as the foursome distinguished themselves from the punk and New Wave-soaked Sunset Strip, donning New York Dolls debauched leather. Stylistically suggesting Alice Cooper, Kiss and Aerosmith, Neil’s caterwauling vocals and Mars’ melodic guitar riffs prompted the indie debut of Too Fast For Love that year. With the group’s burgeoning Southern Cali popularity and first tour, Crüesing Through Canada, the album sold 20,000 copies; enough to spur interest from Elektra Records, which remastered
Too Fast for release in 1982, followed by sophomore Shout at the Devil in 1983. The multi-platinum Oklahoma City hard rockers, Hinder got just freaky enough for their latest offering and fourth full length album. Of course they’ve still got some big rock anthems such as “Ladies Come First,” but tracks like the acoustic “Get Me Away From You” boast gritty charm with just the right amount of pop prowess.

National Healthcare Week celebrated at LRGHealthcare LACONIA — National Healthcare Week, the nation’s largest health care event, is a celebration of the history, technology and dedicated professionals that make our facilities beacons of confidence and care and is being celebrated at LRGHealthcare the week of May 12. National Hospital Day was originally conceived by a Chicago magazine editor as a public healthcare event that encouraged trust in the city’s hospitals in the wake of the ‘Spanish flu’ outbreak of 1918, which killed more than 600,000 Americans. The event expanded to an entire week in 1953 and renamed
National Hospital Week, later becoming National Healthcare Week. During National Healthcare Week, LRGHealthcare honors its dedicated, talented employees who give their best to care for our patients, day in and day out. An employee committee, led by Director of Human Resources Cass Walker, has planned a week full of food, fun, fairs, health and gifts to demonstrate gratitude to employees at Lakes Region General Hospital, Franklin Regional Hospital, and all affiliated practices.

your flock. You’re driven to know the plight of eagles, owls, penguins and parrots, too. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You will not be outmatched by the surprises of life. The same situations that stress other people out make you feel calmly vital and ready to rise to the challenge. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The unexpected way things unfold today will make for a good story later. Any inconvenience you experience will seem funny to you in retrospect. Keep a cool head. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Address the pressing issues quickly, but don’t dwell there. Get back to what you planned for this day. Let nothing derail you from your mission. Stay in charge of your time. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 15). You break out in some way this year. You don’t feel constrained by prevailing attitudes and views, and you’ll enjoy the look of surprise on people’s faces caused by your unconventional choices. A group adventure in June leads to an interesting career development in July. August is your chance to change a family pattern. Capricorn and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 12, 2, 22 and 35.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). New information sources, relationships and experiences will serve to expand your worldview. Knowing what is going on in other places will give you ideas about what to do in your corner of the globe. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You don’t always run as tight a ship as this, but because of your disciplined command, your vessel will take you and your crew exactly where you intend to go. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your agreement or disagreement will make all the difference in someone’s plans. Therefore, once you give your answer, don’t change your mind. And if you can give your answer quickly, it will be better for all. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ve experienced enough confusing dilemmas to come up with your own unique solutionfinding system. Whether you sit down or sit up, the result is the same. It doesn’t matter how you come to a conclusion, only that you do. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’re like the star of a fairytale now as you elude the monsters and dragons of the woods. They are not the only ones to watch out for, though. Avoid candy houses and perfect apples, as well. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your imagination is wild, and there are good reasons to tame it. Self-defeating thoughts are worse than any external enemy could be. Get ahold of your mental patterns, and you’ll have control of your life. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Ever aware that we are all sharing planet Earth, you’ll show respect in the way you navigate the more crowded spaces. It may feel like you’re the only one behaving with grace and manners, but others will take their cue from you. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You feel at home wherever you go today. Others are not so comfortable. Your protective instincts will kick in, and you’ll help someone who is hopelessly out of his or her element. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You know what they say about birds of a feather, and yet you won’t be content to stay with

In 1930, registered nurse Ellen Church, the st airline stewardess, went on duty aboard an akland-to-Chicago flight operated by Boeing Air ansport (a forerunner of United Airlines). In 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt gned a measure creating the Women’s Army uxiliary Corps, whose members came to be nown as WACs.

In 1972, Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace was hot and left paralyzed by Arthur H. Bremer while ampaigning in Laurel, Md., for the Democratic esidential nomination. (Bremer served 35 years a 53-year sentence for attempted murder.) In 1975, U.S. forces invaded the Cambodian and of Koh Tang and recaptured the American erchant ship Mayaguez. (All 40 crew members ad already been released safely by Camboa; some 40 U.S. servicemen were killed in the peration.) In 1988, the Soviet Union began the process withdrawing its troops from Afghanistan, more an eight years after Soviet forces had entered e country. Ten years ago: Emergency officials rushed a series of mock catastrophes in the Chicago ea on the busiest day of a national weeklong xercise. Five years ago: President George W. Bush, ddressing the Israeli Knesset, gently urged Midast leaders to “make the hard choices necessary r peace” and condemned what he called “the lse comfort of appeasement.” One year ago: Francois Hollande became esident of France after a ceremony at the ysee Palace in central Paris — the country’s st Socialist leader since Francois Mitterrand left fice in 1995.

Page 28 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, May 15, 2013
Dear Annie: I am finally divorced. My ex and I have a minor child together. He has met my new partner, and they get along great while at our son’s sporting events. I thought it would be healthy for our son to see us as friends. I also thought it would be nice to meet my ex’s new girlfriend since they’ve been a couple as long as I’ve been with my guy. I made several requests to introduce myself, but she refuses to meet me. I find this odd, because she helps take care of my son when he’s in my ex’s home. It seems to be a control tactic on her part. My ex never stands up to this woman about her treatment of me, and although I’ve never said a nasty word to her, she sends me ranting emails regularly. She once mailed a fourpage hate letter about my parenting skills. I feel bullied. For the record, my ex is kind to me when she is not around. But when he’s on the phone with me and she’s nearby, he becomes rude and hostile. I’m sure he’s putting on a show for her. I’ve always promoted my child’s father in a positive light, but I am tired of this infantile behavior. It’s exhausting. Requests, questions and messages about school activities often go unanswered, or I get one-word responses from him. Then he accuses me of not keeping him informed. My family has suggested that I stop communicating with him altogether. What do you think? -- Texas Dear Texas: If you have an opportunity to talk privately with your ex, calmly explain that it is diffi cult for you to deal with his inappropriate behavior on the phone, and you would appreciate it if he would be civil in your interactions. Otherwise, you will expect him to get his information through the school, and you will instruct the office to include him. His girlfriend seems abusive to you, and it’s a shame your
ex doesn’t have the backbone to stand up to her. (She may be abusive to him, as well.) We trust she does not take this out on your child, but please keep an eye on that. Dear Annie, I just left my dermatologist’s office after waiting an hour to see him, and I’m furious. Don’t doctors realize that their patients’ time is also valuable? Another doctor left me sitting in his office for two hours, and I was the second appointment of the day. When I asked the receptionist why the long wait, she told me the doctor likes to flirt with the nurses at the hospital. This same doctor charged me for a hospital visit after he popped his head into my room to say he was running late and didn’t have time to see me. If doctors know they are likely to run late, why don’t they stretch the time between appointments? I’m sick and tired of physicians expecting their patients to finance their fancy homes and golf memberships while they treat us so poorly. -- Fed Up in Louisville Dear Fed Up: Some doctors cannot help running late if they have emergencies. And others are working to schedule less crowded appointments or to phone patients when they are behind. But your most effective policy is to find doctors who are more accommodating to your schedule. If you consistently wait more than an hour for a regular appointment because the doctor is “flirting,” tell the doctor (not the receptionist) that you will be looking for another physician and why. Dear Annie: You have printed letters about adoptees searching for their biological families, but I think people ought to look at this in a different manner. If you don’t know your biological family, you also won’t know whether the person you fall in love with is a sibling. Everyone needs to know who his or her family is. -- Just a Thought
