Pass the hat: commission refuses to pay convention’s legal bill BY ROGER AMSDEN

LACONIA — Belknap County Commissioners say they won’t pay a $1,500 bill for legal services brought forward by the County Convention from the Mitchell Municipal Group of Laconia. ‘’It’s not our bill. We had

Shackett’s words echoed the warning that Commissioner Ed Philpot gave to the convention in March when he said, “If the Mitchell Group presents us with an invoice, we would not pay it, because we did not hire the attorney.” Disregarding the advice, the convention instead voted

to hire the Mitchell Group to defend itself against a lawsuit brought by former Laconia Mayor Tom Tardif, which charged that it had violated the state Right-to-Know Law by electing its officers by secret ballot last December. Shortly after the suit was see LEGAL BILL page 7

City of Keene going after ‘Robin Hood’ group that feeds coins into expiring parking meters

KEENE (AP) — The city of Keene, N.H., has sued a group that feeds change into parking meters that are about to expire, saying members are harassing enforcement officers. The group calls itself “Robin Hood of Keene.” Members walk city streets with rolls and dimes of quarters to feed the meters. WMUR-TV reports the city accuses the group of interfering with officers’ work. It asks them to stay at least 50 feet away. The group records its time outside and posts videos online, sometimes showing members following the officers. The city says one officer suffered stress, anxiety and heart palpitations from the group’s actions. Group member Garret Ean says he’s not trying to cause any medical problems. He says he tries to keep a good demeanor with all the parking meter enforcers.

Obama fires IRS commissioner over tea party targeting WASHINGTON (AP) — Hurrying to check a growing controversy, President Barack Obama ousted the acting commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service late Wednesday amid an outcry over revelations that the agency had improperly targeted tea party groups for scrutiny when they filed for tax-exempt status. Obama said Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew had asked for and accepted Steven T. Miller’s resignation. Obama made no public criticism of Miller but spoke of inexcusable “misconduct” by IRS employees

and said new leadership at the agency was critical. “Americans are right to be angry about it, and I am angry about it,” Obama said in a televised statement from the White House. “I will not tolerate this kind of behavior in any agency but especially in the IRS, given the power that it has and the reach that it has into all of our lives.” Miller’s ouster came five days after an IRS supervisor publicly revealed that agents had improperly targeted groups with “tea party” or “patriots” in their appli-

cations for tax exempt status. It came a day after an inspector general’s report blamed ineffective management in Washington for allowing it to happen for more than 18 months. The report said tea party groups were asked inappropriate questions about their donors, their political affiliations and their positions on political issues, resulting in delays averaging nearing two years for applications to be processed. Miller’s departure hardly ends the see IRS page 8

CONCORD (AP) — A special House committee charged with researching gambling voted by the narrowest margin Wednesday against legalizing a casino in New Hampshire. The House Ways and Means and Finance committees voted 23-22 to recommend that the full House kill a Senate bill that would allow up to 5,000 video slot machines and 150 table games. The House is scheduled to vote on the bill next week. Before voting, the panel heard presen-

tations on 17 amendments that would do everything from strengthen regulatory controls to making the license 20 years instead of 10 years and opening up the licensing to new applicants at that point. One proposed change would have allowed any business with a liquor license to have video slot machines. Some proposals would have changed the division of the profits. One would have increased the state’s take. But none were voted on by the commit-

tee before the vote to kill the bill was taken — to the frustration of bill supporters. State Rep. Peter Leishman, a Peterborough Democrat and amendment sponsor, said voting without considering amendments to strengthen the bill was “patently unfair.” But opponents argued the bill was flawed. “We are not there yet,” said Ways and Means see CASINO page 10

WASHINGTON (AP) — One after another, the charges have tumbled out — allegations of sexual assaults in the military that have triggered outrage, from local commanders to Capitol Hill and the Oval Office. But for a Pentagon under fire, there seem

to be few clear solutions beyond improved training and possible adjustments in how the military prosecutes such crimes. Changing the culture of a male-dominated, change-resistant military that for years has tolerated sexism and sexist behavior is proving to be a challenging task.

“Members of the Hill, people in the department and the American people have the right to be outraged,” Pentagon press secretary George Little said Wednesday, adding that the military “must hold ourselves to a higher standard.” see PENTAGON page 11

Pat Buchanan

Obama got only 39% of white vote & it mattered not Has the bell begun to toll for the GOP? The question arises while reading an analysis of Census Bureau statistics on the 2012 election by Dan Balz and Ted Mellnik. One sentence in their Washington Post story fairly leaps out: “The total number of white voters actually decreased between 2008 and 2012, the first such drop by any group within the population since the bureau started to issue such statistics.” America’s white majority, which accounts for nine in 10 of all Republican votes in presidential elections, is not only shrinking as a share of the electorate, but it is declining in numbers, as well. The Balz-Mellnik piece was primarily about the black vote. Sixtysix percent of the black electorate turned out, to 64 percent of the white electorate. Black turnout in 2012 was higher by 1.7 million than in 2008. Hispanic turnout rose by 1.4 million votes. But from 2008 to 2012, the white vote fell by 2 million. This is the crisis of the Grand Old Party: Minorities, peoples of color — Hispanic, black, Asian — gave 80 percent of their votes to Obama. And while the minorities’ share of the electorate was 26 percent in 2012, minorities constitute 36.3 percent of the population. And their share of both the electorate and the population is inexorably rising. Obama won only 39 percent of White America, lowest ever of any victorious presidential candidate. But he did not need any more white votes, when he was carrying people of color 4 to 1. Any good news in the Census Bureau report for the GOP? Only this: The tremendous turnout of black Americans in 2012 was surely due to Obama’s being under ferocious attack and in peril of being repudiated. Black folks turned out in record numbers to rescue the first black president. That situation will not recur in 2016. Yet the bad news for the Republican Party does not cease. While the total Hispanic vote rose by 1.4 million between 2008 and 2012, some 12 million eligible Hispanics did not bother to vote. And when one considers that Romney lost Hispanics 71-27, any Democratic effort to get out the Hispanic vote is going to be problematic for the GOP. Only 48 percent of eligible Asians voted. But when they did, they went 70 percent Democratic. Asians’ numbers, too, are growing, and as more go to the polls, the GOP crisis deepens. The Republican response to this gathering disaster? Led by Senators Marco Rubio, John McCain and Lindsey Graham, Republicans are pushing for amnesty and “a path to citizenship” for the 11 to 12 million illegal aliens in the country today.

Who are these folks? Perhaps half are Hispanic, but 90 percent are people of color who, once registered, vote 4-to-1 Democratic. One would not be surprised to hear that the Senate Democratic Caucus had broken out into chants of “Go, Marco, Go!” Setting aside the illegals invasion Bush 41 and Bush 43 refused to halt, each year a million new immigrants enter and move onto a fast track to citizenship. Between 80 and 90 percent now come from the Third World, and once naturalized, they vote 80 percent Democratic. This brings us back around to the Electoral College. After Richard Nixon cobbled together his New Majority, the GOP carried 49 states in 1972 and in 1984, 44 states in 1980 and 40 in 1988. In four elections — 1972, 1984, 1988 and 2004 — the Republican Party swept all 11 states of FDR’s “Solid South.” Such were the fruits of that evil Southern Strategy. But when conservatives urged Bush 1 to declare a moratorium on legal immigration in 1992 and build a security fence, the politically correct Republican establishment fought tooth and nail to keep the idea out of the platform. So, where are we? Eighteen states, including four of the seven mega-states — California, New York, Illinois and Pennsylvania — have gone Democratic in six straight elections. Two others, Florida and Ohio, have gone Democratic twice in a row. And white folks are now a minority in the last mega-state, Texas. In Ohio, which produced seven Republican presidents, more than any other state, Republicans are dropping out, and may be dying out. “Eight years ago, blacks and whites voted at about the same rate (in Ohio),” write Balz and Mellnik. In 2008, “the participation rate for whites dropped to 65 percent, while the rate for blacks rose to 70 percent. Last November, the turnout rate among whites fell to 62 percent, while the rate for blacks ticked up to 72 percent.” From these Census figures, white folks are losing interest in politics and voting. Yet, whites still constitute three-fourths of the electorate and nine in 10 Republican votes. Query: Is the way to increase the enthusiasm and turnout among this three-fourths of the electorate for the GOP to embrace amnesty and a path to citizenship for 12 million illegal foreign aliens? Or is it to demand the sealing of America’s borders against any and all intruders? Just asking. (Syndicated columnist Pat Buchanan has been a senior advisor to three presidents, twice a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination and the presidential nominee of the Reform Party in 2000. He won the New Hampshire Republican Primary in 1996.)

LETTERS Less chance of being victim of gun violence today than in years To the editor, In her letter of Friday May 10, Bernadette Loesch wrote that “The gun violence epidemic is not a Democrat, Republican or any other political party problem.” The truth is, the supposed “gun violence epidemic” which Bernadette and President Obama refer to, is not there at all. Current FBI statistics report crime, in general, is at near historic lows, versus the population. Also, a newspaper article published on Thursday, May 9 states that a recent study by the Pew Research Center shows gun crime is the lowest it has been in 10 years, having peaked in the early 1990s at slightly higher then 7 per 100,000 population and has dropped steeply by almost 50 percent, to about 3.5 per 100,000 population. In other words, the alleged, “gun violence epidemic” that Bernadette refers to does not exist. And consider-

ing that I have heard the president make recent references to the, alleged “gun violence epidemic”, I would have to say that the, supposed, epidemic is certainly being pushed by the Democrats as well as a biased and liberal media that drills sensationalist events, such as a mass murder, into the public minds by rehashing stories over and over and repeatedly showing the same few seconds of video until folks feel that society is coming apart at the seams unless we do something drastic... now! In reality, this is probably the safest time in the last decade or so for the average citizen to go about their business and feel free from the chance of being a crime victim. C’mon people, it’s time to quite letting party politics and a sensationalist media do the thinking for you and start giving your brains a chance. Michael G. Shanks New Hampton

Thanks for helping make Dad’s 90th birthday such a special one To the editor, I am writing to express my thanks for all of your help and support in making my father, Jim Zanes’, 90th birthday party a huge success. Your graphic artist designed an exceptional ad to announce the festivities. Kudos to her for her imagination and creativity! Ms. Ober took time to visit with Dad and wrote a wonderful article that was published in your paper. She certainly captured his personality and humor! Dad is hugely grateful for the companionship and good wishes sent his way during the open house. Seeing

friends and family and celebrating the occasion made for a great day for him. As always, we appreciate the time and support given to Dad and our family by the Mt. Lebanon Lodge. The men who sponsored this party took time out of their busy lives to make Dad’s day very special. Please check their website at www.lakesregionmasons.org for upcoming community activities. Again, as Dad would say, “Please accept our heartfelt thanks for everything that you did!”. June Garen Gilmanton

Before ‘Fast & Furious’ Bush had ‘Wide Receiver’; both were wrong To the editor, Recently, I made a mistake regarding the Fast and Furious “gun walking” program. I claimed It was started by Bush. That particular gun walking program was indeed begun by President Obama but it was a continuation of George Bush’s 2006 gun walking pro-

gram called “Operation Wide Receiver”. So, gun walking was begun by the ATF under Bush while Obama unwisely restarted the program with his own version. Both have been highly criticized and rightly so. James Veverka Tilton

OPEN D A ILY :30

I thank Sen. Ayotte for her vote & urge her to keep fighting To the editor, To all those writers spending their time and energy attacking Sen. Ayotte for her recent vote against the purely political and emotionally inspired gun control law, save your time and breath. The billionaire mayor of NYC, Michael Bloomberg is doing it for you with millions of his dollars spent on TV adds trying to discredit her. He also spent an unknown amount of his bucks to send out-of-state rabble-rousers to the recent Warren and Tilton, N.H. town meetings, complete with signs and an agenda to disrupt these meetings. Do you really want that blowhard trying to operate in New Hampshire? Just Google “Bloomberg security” and you will find all kinds of articles on this hypocrite’s security detail. He even gets special dispensation to travel to Bermuda with his heavily armed force of NYPD officers. The local cops there don’t even feel the need to be armed. Like most of our large cities, NYC is a haven for gangs and murderers. I say, let him prove that all of their long-standing gun

control laws make one iota of difference in the safety of his average citizens. I don’t have to make this stuff up. Again Google “firstread.nbcnews. com Ayotte” and you will get the facts straight from an NBC reporter, Kassie Hunt. Also when checking his security, read a few of his misuses of what he refers to as “his private army”. Apparently they even have tanks and anti-aircraft guns — anti-aircraft guns? Even I find that hard to believe. Doesn’t sound like a city bleeding red ink really needs a standing army. I’m sure that this letter wont make any difference in the opinions of those fixated on more and more government control, whether it be for guns, education or other areas. As for me, I truly thank Senator Ayotte for that vote and wish her well in the continuing battle against the DC gang in power in their attempt to turn us into a flock of sheep begging for directions to the trough. Donald Lockwood Laconia

What has Obama actually done to make our future brighter? To the editor, I keep wanting to ask those folks who voted for Obama, why? What has he done to deserve your votes? Sure he’s slick and cool but what has he actually done to make your lives better or to make the future for your kids brighter? As far as I can tell every program he supports hurts average people — unless you consider welfare and food stamps the good life. Yes, he supports education in the form of teachers’ unions but look at the state of the nation’s education. We are way down the lists of student achievement among industrialized countries. Kids are still graduating high school who can’t read. Collage grads come out with degrees but can’t find jobs and are saddled with crushing debt. Who’s fault is that? The collages who continue to raise tuition year after year and now Obama wants to excuse the debt. So who gets hurt? All those who pay taxes, that’s who, us. And he’s so cool with his “green” environmental plans. Yup, he invests billions of tax dollars in all kinds of green energy only to see them go bankrupt one after another. Who get hurt? We do, the taxpayers. To pay for all these bloopers, Obama borrows trillions then waists them on

bail outs that fail, investments of millions in foreign countries, and then want to be allowed to borrow more trillions to do more of the same. Who gets hurt? Yep, we do. Notice gas prices are down to around $3.42 gal. Swell, only double what it was when he was first elected. Are the 1 percent suffering from any of this? Nope, its the poor, elderly and working families taking the brunt of it. But unemployment is down you know. Well consider this, millions will graduate high schools and collages in the next couple of months only to find no jobs waiting but neve fear they will not find themselves on the unemployment rolls those are only for workers that have been laid off. Moms and dads will continue to carry the load without break for, what, years to come? And the industries just keeps leaving the country one after another. I could go on and on and on and I will, but in another letter. Let this one sink in a little with those who actually are able to use their own minds outside the incessant drone of progressives telling them what to think, feel and say. Steve Earle Hill

Voters add more money for police & firefighters at Sanbornton Town Meeting BY GAIL OBER

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

SANBORNTON — After considerable discussion, voters chose to add a total of $33,650 to the Budget Committee’s recommended 2013-2014 operating budget of $3,776,638 at Annual Town Meeting last night. The increases adds $19,879 to the Police Department for raises for patrolmen, $10,925 to the Fire Department for two additional per diem firefighters to be on duty during the week, $1,500 to the Highway Department for renting a vibrator roller and $1,344 to the library for fixed operating costs. The increases raise the total operating budget for the fiscal year that begins July 1 to $3,810,286. About 150 people — approximately 7 percent of those eligible to participate — were at the meeting and the only vote regarding the operating budget that was close was about the vibrator-roller rental, which passed by a vote of 83 to 64. The reason for the rental, said selectmen, was because the old one keeps breaking and parts are becoming more and more expensive and hard to get. Selectboard Chair Dave Nickerson said the rental would give the selectmen a year to decide whether to continue to rent a vibrator-roller, buy a new one or subcontract the work to an outside agency. The police asked for between 4 and 12 percent raises to stop the migration of police officers from Sanbornton to other communities who can pay them more money. By means of example, Sgt. Justin Howe, who is also a town resident, said over the past 14 years, Sanbornton has paid about $250,000 to train new officers. He said each officer now requires $35,000 each in training and can’t become completely effective for six months to a year. The request for raises beyond the across the board 2 1/2 percent was triggered by the recent departure of one of the department’s senior patrol officers and lead investigator who took a job in Hooksett that will pay him $10,000 more after he completes his in-house training.

The issue, said Chief Stephen Hankard is that all police officers in New Hampshire require the same training but once they get a few years of experience, they become targeted by bigger towns that can pay them considerably more money. He said the pay increases will not bring Sanbornton to the same pay scale as other communities in the area but will make it more competitive. “If we can get close they won’t jump for the money,” Hankard said. Fire Chief Paul Dexter said his goal was to add two additional per diem officers so there are three people, including himself, who are in the fire station four days a week. He said this gives him more than two people to respond to an incident and frees him to be the incident commander. He said the department and the town have done a great job of building up the equipment used by the firefighters and EMTs and now is the time to invest in manpower. As always, the library is a bone of contention between some members of the Budget Committee and the Board of Library Trustees. Speaking for some member of the BudCom was Chair Earl Leighton, who said the $1,344 was eliminated from the budget request because either the line items were underspent, overspent or the money was spent on non-budgeted items like a refrigerator and and air conditioner. Leighton also said the library pay overtime rates to people who work more than 10 hours — a statement that Director Cab Vinton said was not true. What makes the library different from the rest of the town departments is that once the money is appropriated by Town Meeting, the library trustees take over the budget administration; selectmen cannot take money from the library and spend it in other department without permission of the library trustees. He also said that, by law, the library cannot over spend its budget, unlike other departments in town that can ask selectmen for transfer money from another department to overcome a shortage or an emergency.

Inter-Lakes School Board again wrestling with traffic safety issues around Meredith campus By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

MEREDITH — The Inter-Lakes School Board awarded a contract to reconstruct the Inter-Lakes Elementary School playground at a meeting on Tuesday night. Board members also reconsidered recurring topics of traffic safety for vehicles as they enter and leave the Meredith campus, and the possibility of recording board meetings for access through the Internet. “The chairman and I have spoken a few times about videotaping our meetings,” superintendent Mary Ellen Ormond told the board. “I would like to move forward with this and get some basic pricing.” Ormond said she’d like to gather pricing information for the microphones and camera needed to record meetings, which could be posted for viewing on the district website. A few years ago, with a different superintendent and a different school board, a similar proposal was rejected as an inexpedient use of taxpayer dollars. For years Meredith Selectboard meetings have been broadcast live, and recorded for later broadcast, on Lakes Region Public Access television. “This is just a discussion,” Ormond said. “I would look at what it might take to do... at least start off low-tech, see how many hits it gets. If people are watching it, we might invest some more.” Earlier in the meeting, Ormond told the board that she and other district representatives recently met LEGAL BILL from page one filed, the convention had sought permission from the commissioners, in whom state law vests the authority to engage and direct legal counsel representing the county, to hire its own attorney. Citing the statute, the commission refused the request but retained Paul Fitzgerald of the Wescott, Millham and Dyer law firm of Laconia, to defend the convention. After the commissioners refused the convention’s request, the convention appealed the denial to itself, and voted 10-7 to authorize Worsman to seek legal counsel. Both Laura Spector-Morgan of the Mitchell Municipal Group and Fitzgerald filed appearances

with the chiefs of fire and police departments in the school district’s three towns to discuss safety issues, including the topic of vehicular traffic exiting the Meredith campus and turning onto Route 25, especially those turning left to head toward Center Harbor. Vehicles stopped in the left-turn lane have poor visibility if there’s a driver in the right-turn lane, an issue which has long been of concern at the school. Board member Sally Whalen, one of the Center Harbor representatives, recently asked Ormond to see what could be done to mitigate the hazard. Although there have been a few accidents at that location, Ormond said, they have been minor and haven’t resulted in serious injury. Hiring a police officer to work the intersection would cost about $28,000 per year, she said, and officers wouldn’t stop traffic during winter months due to the steep hill just to the south of the school campus. “The biggest fear is that someone would hit their brakes and cause more problems than it would solve,” she said. Board member Howard Cunningham, who had been on the board when it previously looked at the problem, said, “The most effective solution would be the purchase of property, construction of road for ingress/egress out of Prescott Park (to Rte. 3 North).” That plan would prove expensive, he said. Other board members noted that it would also direct far more traffic through and around Prescott Park’s athletic fields, which might cause additional safety concerns.

Whalen and board member Carol Baggaley suggested redirecting left-turning traffic to the campus’s northern exit, which features only one outgoing lane. “The visibility is so much better,” said Whalen. However, the better sight lines come with a requirement of increased patience as the northern exit is also the one used by buses. Drivers also must drive past the high school’s main entrance, which often sees a lot of back-and-forth foot traffic as students walk to athletic fields. “It’s a conundrum to try and parse through,” said Ormond., who agreed to attempt a “pilot” program in which left-turning traffic would be diverted to the northern exit, and a crossing guard would be stationed at the high school’s entrance for pedestrian safety. Ormond said she would give the board a report on the effectiveness of the pilot. “At least then we can make some hard decisions.” Lastly, the board unanimously agreed with the playground committee’s recommendation to hire M.E. O’Brien & Sons, a Medfield, Mass. company, to construct a new playground at Inter-Lakes Elementary. The winning bid of $126,640 was less than a competing bid from Utiliplay Parks & Playgrounds, Inc., and more than that of Pettinelli & Associates. Assistant superintendent Trish Temperino, representing the playground committee, said the M.E. O’Brien & Sons bid was favored because its proposed design was deemed superior to the others.

in Belknap County Superior Court on behalf of the county with Spector-Morgan later withdrawing. The issue Tardif raised was apparently resolved when the convention held a new election at which votes for the convention officers were made in public. ‘’I think it was pretty clear up front that we had already hired an attorney for the delegation,’’ said Philpot, who said that the flip side is that the Mitchell Group had provided the services in good faith. ‘’When we tried to explain to the delegation that there had never been a question in the past about how this got handled, they wouldn’t listen. It’s just another example of the continued friction which

resulted in yet another bill for taxpayers. It was unnecessary and is a bill the delegation members should pay,’’ said Philpot. Commissioner Steve Nedeau said that the Mitchell bill isn’t the only one for legal services the county faces, pointing out that the convention has hired another attorney to represent it in potential legal action against the commissioners over who has control over line items in the county budget. ‘’The chairman of the convention was down in Concord soliciting attorneys for that suit,’’ said Nedeau, who said that the commission needs to be consistent see next page

County Nursing Home recovering from outbreak of gastrointestinal illness LACONIA — The West Wing of the Belknap County Nursing Home has reopened for public visits but the East Wing remains closed to visitors due to an outbreak of gastrointestinal illness. Both wings were closed for nearly a week after the outbreak was first reported to the state Bureau of Infectious Disease Control last week according to Charlotte Flanagan, infection control specialist at the Nursing Home. ‘’We were able to open the West Wing to the public this week but we have to wait for four days with no new cases in the East Wing before we

reopen it. Hopefully that will be Saturday,’’ said Flanagan, who noted that only visitors to terminally ill patients had been allowed to visit the home during the outbreak. She said that visitors were instructed to wash their hands frequently but were not required to wear masks as the illness is not caused by airborne agents. Symptoms, which included vomiting and diarrhea, were mild and lasted less than eight hours for most of those affected said Flanagan. — Roger Amsden

LACONIA — Police arrested two men at Cumberland Farms Tuesday night after someone reported a disturbance from inside the store. Michael J. Gallos, 36, of 76 Center St. was charged with criminal threat-

ening, criminal mischief, disorderly conduct and simple assault. Matthew Wade Andrews, 25, of 9 Sargent Place #66 was charged with disorderly conduct.

IRS from page 2 matter. Three congressional committees are investigating, and the FBI is looking into potential civil rights violations at the IRS, Attorney General Eric Holder said earlier Wednesday. Other potential crimes include making false statements to authorities and violating the Hatch Act, which prohibits federal employees from engaging in some partisan political activities, Holder said. Miller, a 25-year IRS veteran, took over the agency in November when the five-year term of Commissioner Douglas Shulman ended. Shulman was appointed by President George W. Bush. Obama has yet to nominate a permanent successor. A new acting commissioner was not announced Wednesday evening. In an email to employees, Miller said, “This has been an incredibly difficult time for the IRS given the events of the past few days, and there is a strong and immediate need to restore public trust in the nation’s tax agency. I believe the service will benefit from having a new acting commissioner in place during this challenging period.” In Lew’s letter asking for Miller’s resignation, Lew wrote that the inspector general’s report “has created an urgent need to restore public trust

and confidence in the IRS by installing new leadership for the service.” At the time when tea party groups were targeted, Miller was a deputy commissioner who oversaw the division that dealt with tax-exempt organizations. The report by the Treasury inspector general for tax administration does not indicate that Miller knew conservative groups were being targeted until after the practice ended. But documents show that Miller repeatedly failed to tell Congress that tea party groups were being targeted, even after he had been briefed on the matter. The IRS said Miller was first informed on May, 3, 2012, that applications for tax-exempt status by tea party groups were inappropriately singled out for extra, sometimes burdensome scrutiny. At least twice after the briefing, Miller wrote letters to members of Congress to explain the process of reviewing applications for tax-exempt status without revealing that tea party groups had been targeted. On July 25, 2012, Miller testified before the House Ways and Means oversight subcommittee but again was not forthcoming on the issue — despite being asked about it.

Commissioners say convention majority has already prejudged proposal to expand nursing services By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, May 16, 2013— Page 9

City reported to be in good shape on debt service front By michAel Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — City Manager Scott Myers told the City Council this week that after reviewing the principal and interest payments on the city’s outstanding and projected borrowings that it would be possible to borrow for the reconstruction of the Central Fire Station and purchase of the Laconia State School property without raising annual debt service above the self-imposed limit set to comply with the tax cap. Myers said that Finance Director Donna Woodaman prepared a projected debt schedule of outstanding principal and interest payments as well as servicing a borrowing of $850,000 to resurface the Smith Track at Opechee Park and complete the Weirs Community Park, which is proposed in the 2013-2014 budget. In addition, the schedule projects the debt service on borrowings of $4-million for the Central Fire Station and $2-million for the purchase of the State School property. The schedule indicates that the additional debt can be accommodated within the $3.2-million limit

on total annual debt service, which the council has adopted, except for three years — 2015, 2016 and 2017 — when principal and interest payments would reach $3.4-million. Myers said he expected to recommend the reconstruction of the Central Fire Station in the 2015-2016 budget. The city previously purchased two lots along Tremont Street to accommodate expansion of the fire station. Meanwhile, Myers suggests adjusting the $3.2-million limit to reflect growth of the property tax base by applying an annual increase in the Consumer Price Index of 1.5-percent, which he described as a “very conservative assumption.” If the limit on annual debt service were adjusted, payments on projected borrowings would remain well within it. “The city has a reasonable and manageable level of debt,” Myers said. He said that the $1.8-million in capital outlay funded with cash within the operating budget proposed in the 2013-2014 budget represents 8 percent of all city appropriations, a level which maintained on a regular basis contributes to managing the debt burden.

LACONIA — Belknap County Commissioners, continuing their long-running turf war with the Belknap County Convention, criticized the convention Wednesday morning for what commissioners say is a lack of transparency in its decision making. ‘’They want to make decisions before they even get here and without any input,’’ Commissioner Steve Nedeau (R-Meredith) said as the commissioners collectively expressed their frustrations with the convention. The remark was touched off by a discussion of what will be taking place at next Tuesday’s public hearing on the commission’s request for a $200,000 supplemental appropriation to expand the capacity of the nursing home to offer rehabilitative services paid for by Medicare. Earlier this month Rep. Colette Worsman (R-MerBEAR from page one edith), the chair of the convention, abruptly canof the coop.” Shortly after that she said two police celled a public hearing to address the request, saying the coop. officers came who were very angry to learn someone that the county administration failed to provide suf“It totally destroyed one of the coops,” she said. had shot at the bear. ficient information in time for members to make a “The chickens flew away and were all over.” “They freaked out and started yelling at me,” she responsible decision.

LHS from page one will line the path into the stadium, are available for purchase by local organizations or individuals who wish to be a lasting part of the project. Of the 20 granite steps, said Emond, six remain unclaimed and can be engraved with a name or message in exchange for a $5,000 donation to the campaign. For a $1,000 gift, donors can engrave a 12-inchsquare granite paver, of which 40 were initially available and 15 are still up for grabs. Emond said there are also opportunities for donors to sponsor a brick in the walkway; a large brick for $250 or a smaller one for $125. “It’s an opportunity for people in the community to participate in this project,” said Emond. Those interested in learning more about the opportunity, visit the district’s website at www2.laconiaschools.org or call the district office at 524-5710. The first phase of the Huot Technical Center project is complete, with students in several programs already utilizing a newly-constructed, 34,000-square-foot building along Dewey Street. Attention has now turned to the old Huot space, which will be renovated and reconstructed. Meanwhile, crews have also been busy all school year behind the school, moving countless truckloads of earth to re-shape the hill behind the former site of

the football field into a three-tier configuration. The first tier, located where the football field used to be, has been converted into a parking lot with room for 140 cars, with a small practice field to the south side. Raised above the parking lot will soon be a state-of-the-art synthetic playing field — Bank of New Hampshire Stadium — able to host all sports that play on a rectangular field. Grandstand seating is in place for 775 cheering fans, including a press box donated by Mas-Con. A third tier, yet higher than the playing field, will be the site of Bobotas Field, a natural grass practice field. City Councilor Matt Lahey, one of the proponents of the campaign, said much of the progress toward the million-dollar goal has been thanks to corporate donations — Bank of New Hampshire, Irwin Automotive Group, Irwin Marine, Meredith Village Savings Bank, Eptam Plastics, among others — and Lahey said there are further naming rights available. For example, he’s courting possible sponsorships for the stadium’s press box and concessions stand, as well as for the Huot Center’s automotive program. For those who don’t have a corporate account from which to make donations, though, Lahey said the stair, paver and brick sponsorships represent a rare opportunity for individuals. “As residents of this city, as alumni, they have a chance to play a role in a

significant improvement,” he said. Craig Kozens, teacher, football coach and soon to be the school’s athletic director, noted that the stadium will be the premier athletic facility in central New Hampshire, and is likely to remain such for a long time. For those who sponsor a portion, however large or small, he said, “They’ll have a lasting piece of the entire project.” CASINO from page 2 Chairwoman Susan Almy, D-Lebanon. “If we keep saying it’s not ready yet, it won’t ever be ready,” replied Rep. Katherine Rogers, D-Concord. Even with the recommendation to kill the bill, supporters said they will take the fight to the House floor. Under House rules, supporters will have to defeat the motion to kill the bill before passage and amendments can be considered. The House has considered dozens of casino bills over the years but never passed one. State Sen. Lou D’Allesandro, a Manchester Democrat and the bill’s prime sponsor, said he was disappointed with Wednesday’s vote, but would not give up. “The real game will be played on the House floor,” he said. Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan has been lobbying hard for representatives to support the Senate bill. She included $80 million from a licensing fee in her budget, but the House budget passed last month to the Senate does not rely on gambling revenue. Senate Republican leaders say their version of the budget will spend less than the House’s proposal rather than accept some of the House’s budget assumptions, putting pressure on the House to approve a casino. Both sides agree it would be unlikely the state would get any revenue from gambling in the next two years besides the gambling license fee. “I am extremely encouraged by the closeness of today’s committee vote,” said Hassan. “As the bill moves to the floor, I believe the full House will give a more complete consideration to this legislation and the proposed bipartisan amendments that were not voted on today.” House Speaker Terie Norelli, a Porstmouth Democrat, said she could not predict next week’s vote but said she believes it will be close. The House panel weighed a number of possible changes to the Senate bill with 12 of the 22 supporters signing onto one proposed amendment which is expected to be offered next week if the House agrees to consider the bill. Among its proposed changes, the amendment would strengthen the regulations, prohibit political contributions to state candidates and bar them from soliciting money from the casino operators, limit indoor entertainment venues to1,500 seats and require applicants to negotiate agreements with live entertainment centers that would be affected by a casino offering shows. Rather than sell 24 hours a day, seven days a week, they proposed making the casino stop selling drinks at 1 a.m., the same time charities must stop. The Senate bill allocates most of the state’s profits to highway improvements, higher education and economic development in the northern part of the state. The House passed a bill that would phase in a 12 cent tax increase on gas and diesel to pay for highway improvements and also attached it to the budget package, which ensures it will be part of negotiations next month over the spending plan for the two years beginning July 1. from preceding page which will be considered. ‘’I don’t know what it is, but is a process which is patently incompatible with open government. It’s obvious decisions are being made without having a healthy discussion in public,’’ said Commissioner Ed Philpot (D-Laconia), who suggested that the commission send a letter to the convention expressing their concerns and offering to open a discussion about openness in decision making. The convention will hold the public hearing on the supplemental appropriation request at 6 p.m. next


Lester picks up 6th win by shutting down Rays, 9-2 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Jon Lester stayed unbeaten, Stephen Drew hit his second career grand slam and the Boston Red Sox roughed up AL Cy Young winner David Price and the Tampa Bay Rays 9-2 on Wednesday night. Price (1-4) departed from the marquee pitching matchup because of left triceps tightness during Boston’s eight-run third inning, which Drew finished with his towering homer off Jamey Wright. Coming off a one-hit, complete game shutout of Toronto, Lester (6-0) allowed two runs in seven innings to help end the Rays’ season-best six-game winning streak. The Red Sox, meanwhile, stopped a three-game losing streak that’s been part of a May slide. They are 5-9 this month after going a major league-best 18-8 in April. Price left with one out in the third inning after giving up an RBI single to David Ortiz. The left-

hander walked toward the plate after delivering the pitch to the Red Sox designated hitter and appeared to grimace. The Rays weren’t as fortunate in the third, when Price walked Drew and gave up a single to Jacoby Ellsbury to begin Boston’s biggest inning of the season. Pedroia’s RBI single gave the Red Sox a 1-0 lead. Ortiz’s opposite-field single that just eluded diving third baseman Evan Longoria made it 2-0. Mike Napoli doubled and Jonny Gomes singled off Wright to drive in the final two runs charged to Price, who allowed four runs and five hits in 2 1-3 innings. Jarrod Saltalamacchia walked with two outs to load the bases for Drew, who lifted a 1-1 pitch into the half-filled right-field stands at Tropicana Field. Pedroia has a seven-game hitting streak, and he’s had multiple hits in six of those games. Middlebrooks hit a solo homer off Kyle Farnsworth in the eighth.

Dartmouth freshman accused of raping fellow student HANOVER (AP) — A Dartmouth College rugby player from Great Britain has been charged with raping a female student, and police suspect there is at least one additional victim. Hanover police said 20-year-old Parker Gilbert, a freshman from London, was arrested Thursday and charged with four counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault. His arrest followed a complaint from a female student who said she was attacked after

Gilbert entered her unlocked dorm room early on the morning of May 2. Police said they have reason to suspect that at least one other woman was recently attacked by Gilbert, who is being held on $75,000 bail. He could not be reached for comment. Police said he did not yet have a lawyer. Dartmouth College said it does not comment on ongoing criminal investigations.

PENTAGON from page 2 As new sexual assault allegations emerged this week involving an Army soldier who was assigned to prevent such crimes — the second military member involved in similar accusations — the Pentagon said Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is working on a written directive to spell out steps aimed at resolving the escalating problem. But President Barack Obama, fuming at a news conference last week, warned that he wanted swift and sure action, not “just more speeches or awareness programs or training.” Sexual offenders need to be “prosecuted, stripped of their position, courtmartialed, fired, dishonorably discharged. Period,” he said. “The president has made very clear his expectations on this issue,” Little said, adding that Hagel told Obama on Tuesday about an Army sergeant first class at Fort Hood, Texas, who faces allegations of sexual misconduct. The case involves the soldier’s activities with three women, including an allegation that he may have arranged for one of them to have sex for money, according to a defense official. Those allegations come on the heels of a Pentagon report last week that estimated that as many as

26,000 military members may have been sexually assaulted last year, based on survey results, out of 1.4 million in the services. That report, and a recent series of arrests and other sexual assault problems across the military, have triggered a rush of initiatives from the Pentagon and proposed legislation on Capitol Hill.

Nunes given PSU’s Distinguished Staff award

PLYMOUTH — The 2013 Plymouth State University (PSU) Distinguished Operating Staff Award was presented to Nikki-Ann Nunes during a ceremony held on May 8. Nunes was chosen from a field

of six semi-finalists for the annual award, which was presented by PSU President Jayne Steen. “Everything she does is accomplished at the highest levels of quality,” Steen said. “She makes every human being with whom she works know that they are valued and they are her highest priority.” Nunes is the administrative assistant in the Department of History and Philosophy and the Social Science Department, and has been working at PSU 10 years ago. In their nomination letters, her co-workers describe Nunes as, “always willing to learn new things and takes on new challenges with verve. Her dynamic personality helps to knit the new department into a cohesive whole. She is extremely dedicated to her faculty; she is a beacon of good will for the department and all of its members.” Nunes said she was stunned when she was announced as the winner of this year’s Distinguished Operating Staff award. “I’m shocked that I won,” said Nunes. “I love Plymouth State University, the diversity, the people I work with, it’s a beautiful place to live and work; I wake up every morning and think, I get to go to work!” Nunes, a Holderness resident, is the mother of a 20-year old daughter, Chelcey. She is a longtime volunteer and board member of Keeping You Me and Memories Alive, Inc., a local non-profit group that assists cancer patients and their families.

LACONIA — The ‘Musicians Band Together’ fundraiser will be held Sunday, May 26 from 2-8 p.m. at the VFW Hall on Court Street in Laconia. Many of the area’s finest musicians are joining forces to give their time and talent to put on a oneof-a-kind show that’s part concert, part dance and part jam fest, all to raise money to benefit the Lily Johnson Memorial Fund and the Allyssa Miner Benefit Fund at Franklin Savings Bank. In addition to a day full of live music ranging from intimate solo acoustic performances to full band rock and roll jams, there will be plenty of food, raffles and tributes to Lily and Allyssa. Tickets are $10 in advance and are available at the Laconia VFW, the Sunflower Shop, the Laconia Pizza Hut, Greenlaw’s Music, The ClothesLine Children’s Resale Boutique- Laconia Store and at Tilton Autoserv. A very limited number of tickets will also be available for $15 at the door. This will be a nonsmoking event, the VFW will have normal bar service, and those under the age of 21 must be accompanied by an adult. The music will kick off at 2 p.m. with local favorites Jim Tyrrell, Matt Langley, Josh & I, Meg Josalen, Don Bartenstein, Paul Luff, Eric & Paul, Just Hanging and Resonant Soul all playing sepa-

rately, together, and with friends. The bands will then take over, starting with the George Brown Band, followed by Jam Sandwich and then a special reunion of the local power rock band Powerlock. The night will peak with surprise guests in an All-Star Jam Session. Manny Pimentel will be the DJ and provide the sound system for the entire event. There will be raffle items galore, all donated by generous, local businesses. If your business has an item or gift certificate to donate, contact Sherry at The ClothesLine Children’s Resale Boutique at (603) 369-0108 or email lrmusicbands2gthr4lilyandallyssa@yahoo.com. The fundraising was officially kicked off by the Freemasons of Mt Lebanon Lodge #32, who donated the printing of the tickets and an additional $100 to start things off. The Laconia VFW has also stepped up to pay for advertising and is also donating the use of its hall. “I felt like I had to do something after what happened”, said organizer and local musican Jeff Gandolfi, “Music is one of the things I know I can do that would make a difference. I have a lot of friends who are musicians, and I knew if I called, they would be there immediately. I have a lot of other friends that are helping in so many ways, getting donations and hanging posters, we’re all just pulling together to make this happen, and I can’t thank them enough.”

MEREDITH — The Lakes Region Symphony Orchestra’s (LRSO) last concert of the season on Saturday, May 18 at 7:30 p.m. at the Inter-Lakes High School in Meredith will feature Jan Fuller, the winner of the LRSO Concerto competition sponsored by the Bank of New Hampshire. This is the 4th year of the competition and the Jan Fuller (Courtesy photo) selection process was extremely challenging as those who auditioned were extraordinary young musicians. The students competed for scholarships and an opportunity to play with the full LRSO orchestra. This year there were two winners: pianist Joseph Parker who performed in November and Cellist Jan Fuller who is performing Saturday.

Fuller is from Concord and started playing cello at age 5 with Donna Dennison, the LRSO principal cellist. He has performed with the Boston Youth Symphony Orchestra for 3 years before he joined the New England Conservatory Youth Orchestra as principal cellist. At the Interloch and Tanglewood Music Festivals he sat as principal cellist. He is currently studying with Natasha Brofsky at the New England Conservatory. Also on the program, the LRSO will perform Wagner’s Overture to Rienzi. This overture has long been a favorite of orchestras due to its showy orchestral brilliance and melodic splendor. The 3rd piece to be performed is Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3 (Eroica). The emotionally moving piece embodies Beethoven’s concept of heroism in musical terms. Tickets are $15 for adults and $8 for children and college students. Tickets are available on at www. LRSO.org/tickets, at ticket outlets: Innisfree Bookshop and Mobil station in Meredith; Greenlaw’s Music in Laconia; and Bayswater Books in Center Harbor. Tickets may also be purchased at the door the evening of the concert.

Northeast Organic Farmers plan summer workshop series

CONCORD — The Northeast Organic Farming Association of New Hampshire will host monthly workshops and farm tours throughout the state focusing on a range of topics, from experimental orchard establishment and farm-scale seed saving, to management intensive rotational grazing and cover cropping. The goals of the series are manifold: Each session will be rich in information about various production techniques; Participants will have the opportunity to connect with farmers who have particular expertise; see next page


THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, May 16, 2013— Page 17

from preceding page Each session will give participants the opportunity to connect with other farmers in their region and throughout the state who share similar interests. On Saturday, May 18 from 9:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. the Earle Family Farm, a 30 year old highly diversified organic farm in South Conway will be hosting a hands-on work and learn day in their small orchard. Participants will actively design a healthy environment for young apple and pear trees using permaculture methods. This will include contour swales for water retention, reusing orchard trimmings and hedge and roadside brush trimmings to create brush beds that initially aid as solar traps, then humus as they decay back into soil. Comfrey will be planted as a living mulch, and some herbs planted to attract beneficial insects. A pot luck lunch will be shared at noon. A Cover Cropping and Roller Crimper Demo will be Wednesday, June 5, 6-8 p.m. at Brookford Farm in Canterbury. Participants can discuss cover cropping with other interested growers, make connections, and continue the dialogue. Bring along a blanket, flatware, silverware and a dish to share. After the tour, please join in for a potluck meal. On Tuesday, July 16 from 6-8 p.m. join Steve Normanton for a tour of Normanton Farm, an organic, pasture-based meat and vegetable farm in Litchfield. Normanton will take attendees for a walk about his pastures, which are set up for management intensive rotational grazing, both as a means to improve soil and reduce supplemental feed costs. He’ll share his experience developing his grazing system, and answer questions about his management decisions and techniques. NOFA-NH & UNH Cooperative Extension will host a Seed Production Workshop on Wednesday, August 7, 6-8 p.m. at Sanborn Mills, Loudon. Participants will learn what steps they can take to become more than just a seed saver, from pollination and plant breeding to wet and dry seed extraction techniques. The basics of hand pollination, necessary isolation distances, plant roguing, seed harvesting and processing techniques, and proper seed storage will be discussed. This program is supported by the Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture. To attend the workshops or find out more information, contact Ray Conner, Beginner Farmer Program Coordinator, bof@nofanh.org or (603) 224-5022

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis

try to get paid for it, too. But getting paid will change your feelings and focus. There are some things that are kept pure by leaving money out of the equation. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Except for in cartoons, most hypnotists don’t really use fob watches to put subjects in a trance. Similarly, you don’t need a prop to command attention, because you have the power of your voice and intention. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The good thing about not being “normal” is that it allows you to see how “normal” has been a sham all along. If no one completely fits the definition, then what is it really defining? PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your plan will get better when you know more, but don’t spend all of your time gathering information. At some point, you have to jump into the game. Effort and persistence are as important to your success as knowledge. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 16). This is a passionate time. You’ll express yourself in such an engaging way that you’ll earn fans. June shows a domestic decision. Tired of toeing someone else’s line, you’ll start your own venture in July. Profits follow an excellent plan. Test your ideas out, and enlist the help of experts to get you rocking and rolling. Aries and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 9, 22, 28 and 19.

by Chad Carpenter

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It’s been said that you can’t fit a square peg in a round hole, but this depends on what the peg is made of. Some materials are quite malleable. Similarly, you feel willing to adjust to make things work today. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). People have their own ideas about what���s amusing, and it’s not always easy to get them to loosen up and laugh. But you have an advantage these days: Your brand of humor has universal appeal. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You don’t always follow through with an action just because it makes sense to do so. Some things worth doing are nonsensical, at least on the surface, but you’re compelled by deeper reasoning. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Some endeavors are just pointless, but you feel you have to go through with them anyway to get where you want to go. This is not a day to waste time questioning. Do what needs to be done. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A cellphone can be an alarm clock, a map, a flashlight, a music box, a camera and a thousand other things. Oh, and it can call people. You’ll meet a person who is similarly versatile, and the relationship will serve multiple purposes. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll be a shoulder to cry on. Listen with an open heart, but don’t advise. Unless you’ve really experienced a similar circumstance, it would be overstepping to assume you know how another person feels. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). People should respect your domain, and you shouldn’t have to fight to stay in charge of what happens there. Alas, if you have something good going on, there will always be those who want to home in on it. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You build an easy rapport with fellow water signs today -- that’s Cancer, Pisces and other Scorpios. Professional and platonic conversations lead to emotional bonds that go deeper. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It makes sense to pursue what you enjoy and

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, May 16, 2013— Page 19

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Thursday, May 16, the 136th day of 2013. There are 229 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 16, 1943, the nearly month-long Warsaw Ghetto Uprising came to an end as German forces crushed the Jewish resistance and blew up the Great Synagogue. An estimated 7,000 Jews were killed during the uprising, while about 7,000 others were summarily executed. The remaining Jews, more than 40,000 of them, were deported to concentration camps. On this date: In 1763, the English lexicographer, author and wit Samuel Johnson first met his future biographer, James Boswell. In 1770, Marie Antoinette, age 14, married the future King Louis XVI of France, who was 15. In 1868, the U.S. Senate failed by one vote to convict President Andrew Johnson as it took its first ballot on the 11 articles of impeachment against him. In 1913, jazz musician and bandleader Woody Herman was born in Milwaukee. In 1920, Joan of Arc was canonized by Pope Benedict XV. In 1929, the first Academy Awards were presented. The movie “Wings” won “best production,” while Emil Jannings (YAHN’-ings) and Janet Gaynor were named best actor and best actress. In 1939, the government began its first food stamp program in Rochester, N.Y. In 1948, CBS News correspondent George Polk, who’d been covering the Greek civil war between communist and nationalist forces, was found slain in Salonika Harbor. In 1953, Associated Press correspondent William N. Oatis was released by communist authorities in Czechoslovakia, where he’d been imprisoned for two years after being forced to confess to espionage while working as the AP’s Prague bureau chief. In 1961, Park Chung-hee seized power in South Korea in a military coup. In 1975, Japanese climber Junko Tabei became the first woman to reach the summit of Mount Everest. In 1988, the Supreme Court, in California v. Greenwood, ruled that police can search discarded garbage without a search warrant. Surgeon General C. Everett Koop released a report declaring nicotine was addictive in ways similar to heroin and cocaine. Ten years ago: President George W. Bush launched his re-election campaign. The Senate committed $15 billion to fight global AIDS. In Casablanca, Morocco, five simultaneous suicide attacks claimed the lives of 33 victims, in addition to a dozen suicide bombers. Five years ago: President George W. Bush visited Saudi Arabia, where he failed to win help from Saudi leaders to relieve skyrocketing American gas prices. Osama bin Laden said in an audio statement that al-Qaida would continue its holy war against Israel and its allies until the liberation of Palestine. Robert Mondavi, the patriarch of California wine country, died in Yountville at age 94. One year ago: Gen. Ratko Mladic went on trial at the Yugoslav war crimes tribunal in the Netherlands, accused of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes.

Page 20 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, May 16, 2013

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Dear Annie: I have an 8-month-old puppy, and I take her to a local dog park so she can run off leash and play with the other dogs, which she loves. In the three months I have been taking her, “Phoebe” has never been attacked or fought with another dog. That was until last night, when Phoebe approached another dog that was on a leash and that dog attacked her. My puppy whimpered and howled while being bitten on her neck and back. I tried to get her away, but the other dog was so vicious. The owner of the other dog just stood there making no effort to pull his dog away, nor did he apologize. I finally extracted Phoebe from the other dog’s mouth. As I was walking away, the owner said he doesn’t know why his dog doesn’t like other dogs. I was too shaken to reply. Besides, I felt sorry for the vicious dog, wondering what could have happened to make him like that. Luckily, Phoebe was not severely injured. I did my best to soothe her, but it took several minutes to calm her down. Before I left the park, I warned other owners about the dog that attacked mine. Why would someone bring a dog that hates other dogs to a dog park? There is a gentleman who arranged for the park to exist and is the “leader.” Should I tell him what happened? I don’t want to get the park shut down, which is why I didn’t call the police. What do I do? -- Phoebe’s Human Mom Dear Mom: If the park has a “leader,” then he is the person to notify. This owner seems ignorant of dog behavior and may have been trying to “socialize” his dog by bringing the animal to a pet-friendly park. But it sounds as if that dog needs training. It would be a kindness for someone to point that out to him and make a referral before an animal is seriously hurt. Dear Annie: As an alcoholic in recovery, it was interesting

to me to observe the self-righteousness in my family about my addiction as they went through their heart surgeries stemming from their addictions to chocolate cake, bacon and cherry pies. They are just as addicted to food as I am to alcohol. They say it’s “different,” but how is it more legitimate to grab a doughnut when under stress than to pour myself a cocktail? In spite of their heart surgeries and the struggle of carrying 300 pounds on a body designed for 150, they somehow see slamming down a cherry cobbler as acceptable, but my having a beer is a sin. Moderation in all aspects of our lives might not be a bad idea. -- No Hypocrite in Paducah, Ky. Dear Paducah: Addictions, regardless of type, involve the inability to control one’s appetite, whether it be for food, drugs, liquor, gambling, whatever. Unlike most other addictions, however, one cannot give up food altogether. So while we agree that there is hypocrisy, and of course moderation is best, there is in fact a difference between food, which is necessary for life, and alcohol, which is not. Imagine how much harder it would be to control your addiction if you were told that you absolutely must have three shots a day, but not a fourth. Or a beer. Or a replacement from the well-stocked pantry. Not an excuse, mind you. Just an observation. Dear Annie: I agree with “Retired Teacher” about high school guidance counselors. She is right on the money. Guidance counselors are not in schools to assist students with personal problems. That isn’t even in their job description. Their primary function is to advise students about the courses they need to graduate. After that, a multitude of assessment responsibilities fill their time. While many may wish they could counsel to the emotional well-being of their students, they simply don’t have the time. -- K.

MEREDITH — The Lakes Region Symphony Orchestra’s (LRSO) last concert of the season on Saturday, May 18 at 7:30 p.m. at the Inter-Lakes High School in Meredith will feature Jan Fuller, the winner of the LRSO Concerto competition sponsored by the Bank of New Hampshire. This is the 4th year of the competition and the Jan Fuller (Courtesy photo) selection process was extremely challenging as those who auditioned were extraordinary young musicians. The students competed for scholarships and an opportunity to play with the full LRSO orchestra. This year there were two winners: pianist Joseph Parker who performed in November and Cellist Jan Fuller who is performing Saturday.

Fuller is from Concord and started playing cello at age 5 with Donna Dennison, the LRSO principal cellist. He has performed with the Boston Youth Symphony Orchestra for 3 years before he joined the New England Conservatory Youth Orchestra as principal cellist. At the Interloch and Tanglewood Music Festivals he sat as principal cellist. He is currently studying with Natasha Brofsky at the New England Conservatory. Also on the program, the LRSO will perform Wagner’s Overture to Rienzi. This overture has long been a favorite of orchestras due to its showy orchestral brilliance and melodic splendor. The 3rd piece to be performed is Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3 (Eroica). The emotionally moving piece embodies Beethoven’s concept of heroism in musical terms. Tickets are $15 for adults and $8 for children and college students. Tickets are available on at www. LRSO.org/tickets, at ticket outlets: Innisfree Bookshop and Mobil station in Meredith; Greenlaw’s Music in Laconia; and Bayswater Books in Center Harbor. Tickets may also be purchased at the door the evening of the concert.

GILFORD — The Gilford Parks and Recreation Department will be sponsoring a Senior Momentum program on Monday, May 20. The group will meet at the Community Church, Fellowship Hall at 9 a.m. for “Coffee and a Classic” As we gear up for summer, we will be watching
