Families of murder victims from throughout state gather in Laconia for dedication of Memorial Garden By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — State and local officials paid tribute to the efforts of Carmen Doucette, whose daughter was killed by her estranged husband in Plymouth in 1990, at a dedication ceremony for the N.H. Homicide Memorial Garden at Stewart Park on Thursday. ‘’It was her passion that made this happen,’’ said Sandy Matheson of the Victim Witness Unit of the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office, one of several speakers at the event which drew people from all parts of the Granite State.
Doucette, who lives in Lakeport, is the president of the Lakes Region chapter of the Nationwide Organization of Parents of Murdered Children, orchestrated the building of the memorial. ‘’It’s a beautiful memorial. We were blessed to have so many people help us out,’’ said Doucette, who singled out Ginger Kay Wells of Garden Artisans, who designed the garden, and Richard Freeman, who did the brick work. New Hampshire Attorney General Michael Delaney also praised Doucette’s effort and said that it was fitting see MEMOriaL page 12

Disco Queen Donna Summer dies from cancer at 63
NEW YORK (AP) — Like the King of Pop or the Queen of Soul, Donna Summer was bestowed a title fitting of musical royalty — the Queen of Disco. Yet unlike Michael Jackson or Aretha Franklin, it was a designation she wasn’t comfortable embracing. “I grew up on rock ‘n’ roll,” Summer once said when explaining her reluctance to claim the title. Indeed, as disco boomed then crashed in a single decade in the 1970s, Summer, the beautiful voice and face of the genre with pulsating hits like “I Feel Love,” ‘’Love to Love You Baby” and “Last Dance,” would continue to make hits incorporating the rock roots she so loved. One of her biggest hits, “She Works Hard for the Money,” came in the early 1980s and relied on a smoldering guitar solo as well as Summer’s booming voice. Yet it was with her disco anthems that she would have the most impact in music, and it’s how she was remembered Thursday as news spread of her see DISCO page 15

Police reports shed new light on Trayvon Martin shooting ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Trayvon Martin’s autopsy shows he had marijuana in his system the night he was killed by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, and a gunshot to his chest came from close range, according to nearly 200 pages of previously undisclosed documents released Thursday. At least one investigator wanted to charge Zimmerman with manslaughter but was overruled, according to the documents, which are shedding new light on a case that has raised questions about racial profiling and “stand your ground”
laws. The investigator, who was on the scene after the shooting, wrote on March 13 that the confrontation should have been avoided. That report came nearly a month before Zimmerman was arrested. The documents, photos and video were turned over by prosecutors to defense attorneys earlier this week before they were released to the media. Included in the many witness interviews were accounts by an acquaintance of Zimmerman’s who said he’s racist and a co-worker who said Zimmerman bullied him and mocked him with an exaggerated Middle Eastern accent.
The autopsy says medical examiners found THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, when they tested Martin’s blood and urine. A police report shows the 17-year-old had been shot once in the chest and had been pronounced dead at the scene. The autopsy says the fatal shot was fired from no more than 18 inches away. Also in the package is a photo showing Zimmerman with a bloody nose on the night of the fight. A paramedic report says Zimmerman had a 1-inch laceration on his head and forehead abrasion. see TRAYVON page 13
Facebook’s initial public stock offering puts total value at $104B NEW YORK (AP) — Facebook’s initial public offering of stock is one of the largest ever. The world’s definitive online social network is raising at least $16 billion for the company and its early investors in a transaction that values Facebook at $104 billion. It’s a big windfall for a company that began eight years ago with no way to make money. Facebook priced its IPO at $38 per share
on Thursday, at the top of expectations. The company is selling just a portion of its shares as part of the offering. The $38 price means all of its shares will be worth about $104 billion, giving the company a market value higher than Amazon.com and other well-known companies such as Kraft, Disney and McDonald’s. Facebook’s stock is expected to begin trading on the Nasdaq Stock Market some-
time Friday morning under the ticker symbol “FB.” That’s when so-called retail investors can try to buy the stock. Facebook’s offering is the culmination of a year’s worth of Internet IPOs that began last May with LinkedIn Corp. Since then, a steady stream of startups focused on the social side of the Web has gone public, with varying degrees of success. It all led up to see FACEBOOK page 9

Manchester man charged with 2001 murder of pawn shop owner
CANDIA, N.H. (AP) — As the years passed with no arrest, the brother of a slain Manchester pawn shop owner and real estate broker found shot to death in his bed nearly 12 years ago refused to sit by idly. Robert Jodoin, whose brother George was killed, nagged the Auburn police, the state police and the attorney general’s office — year in and year out. On Thursday, his persistence — and the efforts of a veteran investigator — were credited in helping provide a breakthrough in the cold case. Arthur Collins, 43, of Manchester, was arraigned on two counts of seconddegree murder. Police say Collins fired multiple shots into George Jodoin’s head on Dec. 26, 2001. He is being held without bail at the Rockingham County House of Corrections. A probable cause hearing has been scheduled for June 4. “It’s been hell. Total hell,” was all Robert Jodoin would say after the brief hearing, which he attended with his brother, Peter. Collins’ wife, Dorothy, sobbed heavily. Before court began, she disputed the charges. She said she was with Collins when police surrounded their car at about 4 p.m. Wednesday and made the arrest. Other members of Collins’ family said Collins and Jodoin were best friends who went deep-sea fishing together and often got together over drinks. Collins, they said, would occasionally do work for Jodoin — towing cars or hauling metal. “I don’t believe it,” said Collins’ stepson, 20-year-old Steven Bussiere. “They were, like, inseparable.” “Why would he kill his best friend?” Bussiere asked. “My Dad took a polygraph and cooperated with them.” The arrest warrant affidavit remains sealed and Senior Assistant Attorney General Jeffery Strelzin
would not pinpoint any breakthrough in the case. He did say it came together in recent months. “Every cold case is different,” Strelzin said, adding that sometimes technology and scientific advancements bring new clues. “But often it’s simply just the passage of time,” Strelzin added. “It can hurt you in a case, but it can also help you. People’s allegiances change. People end up deciding to do, let’s say, the right thing.” Strelzin said “significant progress” was made in April. Collins’ lawyer, Greg Albert, said his client will plead not guilty when it’s time to enter pleas. “He’s just looking forward to the facts coming out,” Albert said. Auburn Police Capt. Gary Bartis said Thursday it was a combination of Robert Jodoin’s persistence and the dogged police work by veteran investigator Bill Barry that solved the case. Barry retired from the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office last year after 26 years as an investigator and went to work part-time for the Auburn police nearly one year ago. Bartis said Robert Jodoin respected Barry’s record and asked if he could be assigned to his brother’s unsolved homicide. Barry soon found himself teamed with Detective Robert Freitas of the attorney general’s cold case unit. “Bill’s like a pit bull,” Bartis said. “He wouldn’t let go.” Bartis, who was one of the lead investigators on the Jodoin killing in 2001, said Robert Jodoin really spearheaded the effort. Past efforts by the Auburn police to get the cold case unit engaged, he said, had been unsuccessful. “He was such a pain,” Bartis said, “But he was just trying to get justice for his family and his brother.” Strelzin confirmed George Jodoin see MURDER page 13

Michelle Cardinal is LPD Officer of the Year By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — Not that anyone is counting, but women took more than their share of the honors when the Police Commission on Thursday recognized officers, employees and volunteers for exceptional performance during the past year. Officer Michelle Cardinal was named Officer of the Year, earned a lifesaving award and was cited as part of the team that solved a spate of burglaries, while Officer Kendra Neri was recognized for her part in handling a shooting, two robberies and several burglaries and Officer Brandy Enis was cited for her role in apprehending the so-called “bedtime burglars.” Not be to outdone, Carole Veer, a graduate of the first Citizens Police Academy who immediately joined the Victim Services Unit, was honored as Volunteer of the Year. During the past three years she has guided countless victims of assault, rape and theft through the criminal justice system, assisted the prosecutor with arraignments and trained her half-dozen fellow volunteers, who Chief Chris
Adams said together contributed more than 400 hours to the department last year. After interning with the department and graduating from Plymouth State University, Cardinal began her career with LPD in August, 2008. Apart from her work as a patrol officer, she revived the D.A.R.E. program, which was “in disarray, under funded, and had no directiion.” She found the program, which is funded entirely by donations, in the red and and put it in the black. The program has reached every fifth grader in the city and Cardinal has begun working through the seventh graders. Cardinal was also commended for her prompt response last May upon finding a man in Parker Street with a rope around his neck who had lost consciousness and turned blue. She quickly cut the rope and the man, who had tried to hang himself in his home when the rope snapped, survived. Patrolling near Bartlett Beach on Lake Winnisquam one morning shortly before Christmas, Cardinal spotted a vehicle in the parking lot that see next page

from preceding page the Gilford Police reported stolen in the course of a burglary. Together with Officer Jeff Wholley, Cardinal went to Chapin Terrace, where two homes were reported burgled, and learned a second vehicle had been stolen. Her initial discovery began an investigation by seven officers that ended later the same day with the arrest of two suspects, one carrying a stolen and loaded handgun, who were charged with several burglaries in Lakeport and Gilford, and the recovery of two vehicles, three firearms and other property. The entire team — Sergeant Gary Hubbard, Officers Jonathan Howe, Adam Marsh, Robert Sedgley and Neri along with Detectives Kevin Butler and Robert Cameron — received a distinguished unit action award. Apart from the Chapin Terrace burglaries, Neri was part of two other investigations for which units were commended for their performance. In April 2011, she was the first to the scene of a shooting on Stafford Street, where she cleared the hallway, emptied the apartment and helped the victim. Then she spoke with those who were present, gathering information that assisted Detectives Scott Roy and Chris Noyes in a lengthy investigation leading to the capture and conviction of the shooter. Last December, Neri twice responded to armed robberies at the Laconia Oasis convenience store within days of each other. On the second occasion, she anticipated the suspects would flee in the direction they took two nights before and intercepted them. Although they resisted and escaped, other officers established a perimeter and Officer Michael Finogle and K-9 Jago tracked the suspects from where Neri encountered them, soon apprehending one of the pair and recovering the BB gun used in the robbery. The second suspect was arrested a day later. Neri, Finogle and Jago received meritorious service awards and were among 10 officers to share a distinguished unit action award. Last summer, when residents were shaken by a string of nighttime burglaries of occupied homes, Enis was on routine patrol in the Shore Drive neighborhood one night when she saw two individuals coming toward her cruiser, which was hidden in shadow. When they reached her, she approached and identified the two. The next morning, when a burglary in the area was reported, her information provided Detectives Scott Roy and Chris Noyes with direction for their investigation. When one of the two was arrested for selling drugs, he ultimately confessed to more than dozen burglaries. A hallmark of the department is that individual honors are overshadowed by distinguished unit action awards for teamwork. Lieutenant Matt Canfield, Sergeant Hubbard, Officers , Kevin Shortt, Adam Batstone, Howe and Wholley, along with Detectives Jeff Stiegler and Butler, were commended for apprehending an intoxicated man, who had fired shots from an assault rifle into an apartment below. Likewise, Hubbard, Shortt and Noyes, together with Officers Ben Black and Joe Marquis, worked together to identify and capture a man who committed domestic violence and looted a convenience store. Nevertheless, there remains a place for individual heroics, like when Black answered a call to find a very large 28-year-old man with the mind of a child refusing to go to his room and brandishing a small knife. Black persuaded him to drop the knife, but he quickly grabbed another much bigger one and threatened the officer. Standing just a few feet away in a tight space, Black drew his weapon, remained calm and convinced the man to let go of the knife and lie on the floor. And just to prove not all police work is exciting, Black was also commended for his part in managing the department’s fleet, including the snow blower.

Gay marriage & the shackles of matrimony I think gay marriage is an incredibly boring subject; though, I do like to hear right-wingers say that it will bring the whole edifice of Western civilization crashing down. It’s hard, these days, to find such messages of good cheer. I don’t yearn for such a union, so I have no personal stake in the issue. Occasionally, my gay friends tell me they’ve got married. They never seem especially exuberant. So the liberal progressives glory in Obama’s “courage” and many a doubting heart is lighter and more forgiving about the president’s betrayals. Trashing the Constitution, green lighting torture, and claiming the unilateral right to order the execution of anyone, anywhere on the planet ... wiped clean off the windscreen. It started with lesbian couples in Vermont in the mid-1990s, freaked out they’d lose their babies. Vermont Freedom to Marry was born, and it is now the most powerful democratic organization in the state. It is most certainly responsible for the victory of Gov. Peter Shumlin, who was elected in Nov. 2010 and who, nine months later, was the first sitting governor in the United States to preside over a same-sex wedding ceremony. Fairly early on, gay-marriage lobbying groups realized that whatever else, they had a gigantic moneyraising machine on their hands. Not long thereafter, the right wing realized the same thing. John Scagliotti, maker of “Before Stonewall,” a famous movie about the birth of the gay movement, says he reckons gay marriage is so potent a fundraising tool because whereas it’s hard to visualize anti-discrimination, it’s not at all hard to visualize two men or two women saying, “We do.” So Obama didn’t really have too much of a choice. Though, it wasn’t risk free, since there are a lot of straight voters out there, as in the state of North Carolina, which recently voted overwhelmingly against gay marriage. North Carolina voters simply don’t like samesexers getting hitched. But many of Obama’s key organizers felt he was selling out on the issue. “Obama’s gay marriage stance sets off money rush” was the headline in the Chicago Tribune. According to MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell, one out of six of the “bundlers” in Obama’s fundraising machine is gay. (Bundlers are fundraisers whose success at bringing in specific amounts of money is tracked by the candidate they are supporting. Often, they receive honorific titles for surpassing certain thresholds.) Now they’ll be toiling with tripled ardor, and the recent huge Hollywood fundraiser
hosted by George Clooney probably saw a last-minute surge in big contributions. Cynics suggest that the timing of Obama’s announcement that, “I’ve just concluded that, for me personally, it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married” might of had something to do with that event. There are many tricky questions, particularly now that morals and the surgeon’s knife have deepened their own relationship. What happens when someone who’s had a sex change and who is already receiving domestic-partner benefits at work for his male partner, goes through sex reassignment surgery and acquires the physical impedimenta of the opposite sex? Should the couple lose their benefits until they get legally married? Many gays don’t see marriage as a great step forward. Like Obama only two years ago, they say civil unions would have been enough. “The pursuit of marriage in the name of equality,” says Bill Dobbs, radical gay organizer, “shows how the gay imagination is shriveling.” Judith Butler, professor at University of California, Berkeley, has exhibited similar disquiet. “It’s very hard to speak freely right now, but many gay people are uncomfortable with all this, because they feel their sense of an alternative movement is dying. Sexual politics was supposed to be about finding alternatives to marriage.” As Jim Eigo, a writer and gay activist put it, what’s the use of being (gay) if you can’t be different? “So why are current mainstream gay organizations working to strike a bargain with straight society that will make some (gays) less equal than others? Under its terms, gays who are willing to mimic heterosexual relations and enter into a legally-enforced lifetime sexual bond with one other person will be granted special benefits and status to be withheld from those who refuse such domestication. ... Marriage has no more place in efforts to achieve equality than slavery or the divine right of kings. ... At this juncture in history, wouldn’t it make more sense for us to try to figure out how to relieve heterosexuals of the outdated shackles of matrimony?” And why marriage to just one person? Why this endless replication of the Noah’s-ark principle? (Alexander Cockburn is coeditor with Jeffrey St. Clair of the muckraking newsletter CounterPunch. He is also co-author of the book “Dime’s Worth of Difference: Beyond the Lesser of Two Evils”.)
LETTERS No, my views are not the result of living some privileged life To the editor, Concerning Nancy Parsons response to my letter: Talking about race does not make any one a racist any more than talking about food makes one a chef. Analyzing and commenting on past voting patterns by race, economic status, age or even hair color has noting to do with being a racist nor does predicting future voting patterns by any criteria. Identifying who supports Barack Obama and why is political analysis. Racism is what someone feels in their heart. I feel no personal animosity of any kind towards Blacks, Hispanics, Asians or any other ethnicity. If you want to call me far right for my intense dislike of the debt creating, dependency producing, welfare state honchoed by government command then I accept all name calling. Small, transparent government is the best government. Government has demonstrated repeatedly it’s incompetence to manage anything that does not go BANKRUPT. Social Security and Medicare are both insolvent because almost all beneficiaries collect $5 worth of benefits for every $2 they paid in. Both programs are pure WELFARE by other names. No wonder Nancy demonizes Paul Ryan! She and Democrats do not want these gravy trains fixed on their WATCH. Let the NEXT generation take the pain. As proof of their gutlessness, let’s show grandma in video clips dumped off a cliff in her wheel chair by a person wearing an elephant emblazoned T-shirt. Nancy Parsons’ views represent the precise crossroads that America finds itself at in this years election. There are two clear choices. Continue the Obama, socialist path we have been on since the day he took office or America can pull up its socks the way it always has. Admit the hard truth; the only economic course that works long term is CAPITALISM, despite it’s warts. Government policies must focus like a laser to STIMULATE economic growth, NOT INHIBIT IT. Government has to partner with business, not be it’s COMPETITOR. Government has to incentivize private investment, NOT REPLACE IT in new technologies for energy and the environment. Let capitalism work,
private sector reap the rewards that will produce even more growth, more jobs and prosperity. If capitalism loses its bets then let capitalism EAT the LOSSES, not taxpayers. Solyndra is the perfect example. It is only ENERGIZED, SUSTAINABLE economic GROWTH that can best finance the needs of the less fortunate in any society. A JOB not a WELFARE CHECK, a fish pole, not free fish is the best answer to individual responsibility and the problems that have plagued this country for the past five years. THE SIMPLE TRUTH Is we cannot tax enough people, enough money to pay for the amount of $OCIALISM required in a continually floundering economy. One has to look no further than the countries of Greece, Italy ,Spain, Portugal & Ireland to see where run away $OCIALISM cloaked in ALTRUISM ends. Nancy thinks my views may be the result of living some privileged life. For my youth I lived in a cold, rented, millowned, tenement house just 50-feet from a 4-story worsted woolen mill the size of a Walmart. The deafening looms could be heard for two blocks. My dad worked 70 hours a week at two jobs for all the years I was home. Days at the mill and four nights a week at the local watering hole called Mac’s Bar ‘n Grill. The air in the place was 90 proof. Mac’s was closed Sundays. Dad and I would go down to clean up the mess left from the Saturday night crowd. It was the one day each week I knew, I was certain, I could spend time with my father. I swept the floors of peanut shells and wiped the tables clean of spilled beer. Dad went down cellar to change the kegs. I was age 12 then. I started my first (and not my last) business that year selling worms and crawlers to augment the opulence of my 50-cent allowance. The priest came by and bought my product. Parishioners heard my worms caught trout. My business took off. I ran it till I graduated. I had a lawn route in summer and a snow shoveling route in winter. I made sprays at Christmas and sold them door-to-door. I have tasted hard times and they ENTITLED me to NOTHING. They were a fine MOTIVATOR to take individual responsibility for creating a far better life. Which I did. Tony Boutin

She was rudely told that he considered himself a women and pointed out Macy’s “nondiscrimination” policy. When she insisted, he requested a manager who verified that Macy’s did have such a policy that permitted “transgenders” to use any fitting room they wished. Johnson stood her ground, claiming that permitting him in the fitting rooms would violate religious beliefs. She cited another Macy’s policy protecting against religious discrimination. In the altercation, the “transgender” gathered several of his friends and verbally assaulted Miss. Johnson with expletives. Ultimately, John was fired for her efforts. American’s freedom of religion is eroding from a number of directions. Schools are discounting grades for students who include biblical words and concepts in their school work or recitals. The so called “candy cane case” has been submitted to the Supreme Court after eight years of tussle in the lower courts. In 2003, third grader Jonathon Morgan attempted to hand out candy cane-shaped pens — with a “religious” message attached — to his classmates. He was stopped by the principal and the parents sued. And the case is still unsettled. Churches are being denied use of facilities for worthship services. Pastors are forbidden to hold Bible studies in their own homes. Building and use permits are being denied to congregations who, in some cases, have already purchased property. Two main forces are behind these attacks: Freedom from religion activists and homosexual militants. The anti-religious drive is not so much against all religions, BUT SPECIFICALLY AGAINST BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY. Most others: Islam, Catholicism, Buddhism, Hinduism, etc., are tolerated or welcomed
To the editor, I’ve been following the letters here as always and found a couple of bones to pick. One liberal-leaning writer inferred that conservatives state opinion as fact. Well I find that most conservatives site facts that are easily checkable with non partisan sourses. You can agree or disagree but I would note that this same writer a few months ago was stating as fact that “the Fox News lies”, yet when challenged could not site even one example of such a lie. Another couple different liberal writers were saying that “the Tea Party are all racists”. Couldn’t show any evidence of any wide spread racism but that didn’t stop them from smearing anyone who dared disagree with their view. It was presented as fact as far as they were concerned. So where did they get these non facts? Most liberals admit they don’t listen to Fox News and have never been to a Tea Party. But I bet they watch MSNBC, moveon.org and other George Soros-funded sites. Talk about partisan, slanted views! I just have to wonder if I am the only
into our “multicultural” society. Tolerance applies to everyone but The Lord Jesus Christ. So how did we get here? Mostly because Bible Believers sat back on their “blessed assurance” and let it happen. Can we fix it. YES! If we get enough Gospel back into the culture. That’s a tall order, given how pervasive sin has become. But we need to fight back every way we can. The current theory is: take time to make friends with every sinner, then try to coax him to follow Christ. That’s good, but it would be easier if he already knew the Way of Salvation, and he just hasn’t made a decision yet or needs a little tug. A generation ago, that was mostly the case because so many people grew up in Sunday school or were exposed to a higher saturation of the culture with Christian principles. For a lot of people today, we need to start from the ground up because they have no biblical frame of reference or even have a negative view of Christ and the Holy Bible. Since few are interested in coming to us in our churches, WE NEED TO GO TO THEM. Christians, however, are too busy to do much of that. That’s where strong, no-nonsense Gospel tracts come in. Place a tract with an engaging story in the hand of a “full blown sinner”, confused, but searching, and the Mighty Ghost has something to work with in his or her life. The appeal of that tract will set in his soul for the rest of his or her life. He may not be ready, yet, but when trouble comes, as it surely will, God can give him a nudge through the memory of that tract. For the soul winner, distractions flood our lives diverting us from the most important work we have to do. But “the precious freedom that we have may soon disappear”. We need to work before the night comes. Bishop Paul W. Blake Laconia
Deal after deal, Romney drove firms into debt & bankruptcy To the editor, I think everyone would agree that our economy needs to create more jobs to put everyone back to work who wants to. That would provide more folks with disposable income to buy goods and services that will further grow our manufacturing base and provide tax revenue to the federal government to pay for government services and pay down the deficit. Even in New Hampshire where the unemployment rate is relatively low there are thousands of folks looking for good jobs. Unfortunately the rhetoric coming from the likely Republican nominee does not match his record; what he actually did to grow jobs and expand the productive economy. Mitt Romney says he know business and how to create jobs. But his business record isn’t one of growing companies and creating jobs. He created great wealth for himself and his partners, but saddled many companies with more debt than they had before he came on the scene. Of course Mitt Romney can run his private equity business in whatever way he wants if it’s legal — and it is. But I question the
his money on the backs of the workers in company after company and then claims that that experience gives him the expertise to run the country. In deal after deal, Mitt Romney and Bain Capital drove companies into bankruptcy and put thousands of Americans out of work as he and his investors walked away with millions. And now he’s touting his experience as the way to grow the US economy and create jobs. That is more than misguided — it’s cynical and wrong. Romney didn’t really care about creating or even preserving jobs, rewarding hard work or responsibility. He was far more concerned with making money for himself and his partners. Are those the values we need in a president? I think not — especially when that same kind of single minded focus on placing profits ahead of people is exactly what caused the crisis we’re still recovering from. Mitt Romney’s economic policies and experience will not create a strong, durable economy. They are the last thing we need in New Hampshire or in the nation. Anne Rogers
one who sees these accusations as just a little hypocritical? Now I see where the price of gas has been dropping lately and my friend Marty says that after blaming Obama for prices rising earlier this spring I should give the president full credit for the recent drops in price. Well I would if he had actually done something to cause those prices to drop. So far I have not read or heard of anything he has done in that regard so I will withhold judgment on that while reminding folks that when he took office gas was around $1.80/gal. A drop from $3.84 per, down to around $3.65 is better then a sharp stick in the eye, but only slightly. Still a funny thing happened today. My oil company sent me the coming years monthly budget payment plan. No, it has not dropped — it’s gone up $40 per month. I don’t believe I’m alone in this so unless I mistaken it seems that heating oil will be going up. Now that I will give full credit to Obama for. Steve Earle Hill

LETTERS Bush claimed tax cuts would pay for themselves. They did not To the editor, Mitt Romney speaking in Des Moines, Iowa recently stated “a prairie fire of debt is sweeping across Iowa and our nation... , and when you add up his (President Obama) policies, this president has increased the national debt by five trillion dollars.” If one believes the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, CBO, the policies from the George W. Bush Administration is the main causes for the national debt and is to be the main source for future deficits. The facts are that President Obama had to go into deficit spending to move this country out of recession. The vast bulk of the deficit came after President Clinton gave President Bush a surplus. Bush used the surplus and borrowed monies from the Chinese to pay for his tax-cuts and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Yes, there is some blame on Obama for
the deficit but this country needs to remember that George W. Bush started with a surplus and gave it away. The recession started on his watch. Mitt Romney has called for $10.7-trillion in proposed tax cuts, with no specifics of course, which is much larger than the amount of tax cuts under G.W. Bush. Bush claimed the tax cuts would pay for themselves. History demonstrates that they did not. Romney is making the same claim, tax cuts will pay for themselves. It appears that Mitt Romney’s fiscal policies will follow the same path as Bush’s to which some economists claim will make the US deficit even worse. Romney is going to have to do a better job of explaining his rationale for debt reduction before I can have faith that he can extinguish the “prairie fire” sweeping across this nation.

Sediment is pouring in to Monkey Pond, endangering Waukewan To the editor, Knock, knock! Anyone home in Meredith! Lake Waukewan is in grave danger from the Foundry Ave. area sediment and who knows what else; it appears to be from the old reservoir brook that runs right through the Foundry Ave. area and down into Monkey Pond. Any new development in the area of Foundry Ave. should looked at very carefully. A variance in this area from residential to light manufacturing, repair shop, etc. is much too vague. Maybe the zoning board should take a look at the Monkey Pond area on Lake Waukewan. Sediment is pouring into the pond and lake. It would be nice
to know where this is coming from. The Town of Meredith hires attorneys to sue themselves; this doesn’t make much sense for the taxpayers. I faxed a letter to the state EPA a year ago asking them to look at Monkey Pond problem I never even got a reply. If you want attention from the state or town government don’t pay your taxes; a group of guys will show up at your house with mask on, no name tags and dressed like their going to invade Poland — but otherwise I guess they just pick-up their paychecks. PS: next time vote SB-2. George Horne Meredith Center
Baby Boomrs went without to prepare for their own retirement To the editor, The following was written by my niece, Louise Brooks, who lives in California. I must say, she is right on: “I just read a vile article that puts the blame of the entire current economy on Baby Boomers sucking up all the government benefits from the “young people.” The writer called it “eating our children.” This is my response. We (Gram and Grampa) are Baby Boomers... We’ve never spent anybody’s money but our own hard-earned. We worked our butts off for 40 years, NOT even taking our raises in pay for the last 20 of those years, so we could but the money in a 401K, so we could retire without being dependent on the government. That meant sacrificing... having just enough to have a comfortable but far from lavish life... buying used cars, living a modest 1,500-square-foot, 3-bedroom house, NOT partying all weekend because we couldn’t afford it, no cruises, no trips to Europe, etc. and just having enough to pay the bills, buy clothes and shoes for the kids and maybe go to Disneyland once every two years. As many of of Baby Boomer friends did, we gave out food to the hungry, raised money for the poor and took care of the needy. And, even though, now retired, many of us still donate more than 10-percent of our “set” income to those same causes, besides physically volunteer-
ing to work at food lines, etc. We have done and still do our fair share. Not to mention, helping in any ways we can to support our younger descendants (children, grands, etc.). I’m very disturbed that because of the economy young people cant get jobs, because, we did, at least, have that opportunity. I worry that young adults getting out of school and the soldiers who are finally coming home won’t be able to find good jobs, too. But please, don’t blame it all on the Baby Boomers. There are a lot more Baby Boomers working hard and trying to make and save enough money to sent their kids to college and hopefully retire at 65, than the select few who actually did screw up the economy. One fault we had was being uniformed. (Remember, we didn’t have cable news, Internet, cell phones, etc.) Our major weakness of lining their pockets with the county’s money, accepting bribes from big businesses (lobbyists) and leaving our federal economy in shambles. (That’s nonpartisan statement.) I hope that we as Baby Boomers and you young people “in the know” will have enough sense to not allow vile news articles to separate and cause hatred between the grandparents and their “awesome” grand-kids and that we’ll all vote into Congress those who choose to serve (not control) see next page
Conway man accused of early morning theft from Gilford auto repair business GILFORD — A Conway man was ordered held on $1,000 cash bail after police allegedly caught him trying to steal items from a car at a Lake Shore Road auto repair shop. Affidavits filed by police said Timothy Hodge, 22, ran from police, who called out their local K-9 and his handler, who found him hiding in the woods behind American Automobile and Liscomb Circle. Police said Patrol Officer James Callahan was driving past the business when he saw the headlights of a Dodge Durango come on and then go off. Callahan knew the business was closed for the night — it was 2:48 a.m. — and he called for backup and doubled back toward the business. Two officers found a wallet with Hodge’s identification on the front seat of the Durango. There were keys in the ignition and a license plate attached to the rear of the car that matched a second license plate that was attached to a nearby Jeep. Hodge, who was apparently bare-
foot, initially admitted to police the wallet belonged to him but that he had been picked up from a nearby restaurant by some people in a Dodge Neon who gave him the key to the Durango. Police found the Neon in the parking lot with the keys in the ignition. They said it had recently been moved because of the rain patterns surrounding it. Sgt. Cory O’Connor checked to doors to the dealership and noticed that one of the locks on an overhead doors had been broken. After clearing the building, police noticed wet barefoot tracks “matching Hodge’s lack of shoes” on the concrete floor. During a second interview, Hodges allegedly said he was with three other men and said they allegedly conspired to break into the business, take the keys, and steal items kept in the vehicles. Hodges faces one count of burglary and Chief Kevin Keenan said yesterday there is an active investigation and more arrests and charges are expected. — Gail Ober
GILFORD — Firefighters plucked a local man from an abandoned well early yesterday morning after he apparently fell through a piece of wood that had been covering the opening. Police said they were called to 1424 Lake Shore Road at 1:20 a.m. for a report of a drunken male banging on the door of a residence at Kip and Joe’s Trailer Park. After they got there, officers said they heard a male yelling for help but were initially unable to find him. After searching through the brush, the two police officers found 41-yearold Robert Stitt trapped about eight feet down into the abandoned well. Deputy Fire Chief Richard Andrews said responding firefighters lowered a ladder into the well and one of them climbed down to evaluate the extent
of Stitt’s injuries. Andrews said though he appeared battered and bruised, Stitt was able to climb up the ladder on his own to safety. Emergency responders took Stitt by ambulance to Lakes Region General Hospital for evaluation for a possible back injury. Andrews said records show the well used to supply the trailer park with its water but was abandoned after the town ran municipal water to the it. Fortunately, the well was dry. He said Code Enforcement Officer Dave Andrade has already made contact with the owner of the park who has said he will immediately cover the old well with a permanent cement cover. — Gail Ober
FACEBOOK from page 2 Facebook, the company that’s come to define social networking by getting 900 million people around the world to share everything from photos of their pets to their deepest thoughts. “They could have gone public in 2009 at a much lower price,” said Nick Einhorn, research analyst at IPO investment advisory firm Renaissance Capital. “They waited as long
as they could to go public, so it makes sense that it’s a very large offering.” Facebook Inc. is the third-highest valued company to go public, according to data from Dealogic, a financial data provider. Only two Chinese banks, Agricultural Bank of China in 2010 and Industrial and Commercial Bank of China in 2006, have been worth more. At $16 billion, the size of the IPO is the third-largest for a U.S. company. The largest U.S. IPO was Visa, which raised $17.9 billion in 2008. No. 2 was Enel, a power company and No. 4 was General Motors, according to Renaissance Capital. For the company that was born in a Harvard dormitory and went on to reimagine online communication, the stock sale means more money to build on the features and services it offers users. It means an infusion of funds to hire the best engineers to work at its sprawling Menlo Park, Calif., headquarters, or in New York City, where it opened an engineering office last year. And it means early investors, who took a chance seeding the young see next page

TELEVISION from page one prisoners and to search those who are returning from work details or court for contraband. With an average inmate population that hovers between 110 to 120 men and women, the area is undeniably busy virtually 24 hours a day. In the past few weeks, the booking rooms have taken on another role — that of a makeshift courtroom. Installed in Room 1 is a video machine with about an eight-inch screen through which an accused can see a fixed panoramic view of the courtroom in which he or she would typically appear. In keeping with many of the other county jails, Belknap County has recently installed a videoconference system — an electronic communication system that allows real-time video communication between an inmate and a sitting judge in the 4th Circuit Court in Laconia, formerly the Laconia District Court. The prisoner stands against the wall of one of the booking rooms and can see a panoramic fixed image of the courtroom. The people in the courtroom see the prisoner, his or her back to a beige cinderblock wall, on a 42-inch flat screen television permanently set up in one of the smaller courtrooms in the Laconia Division Courthouse. Ward and Sheriff Craig Wiggin — whose department is responsible for transporting prisoners to and from court — say the new system will streamline much of the moving about of prisoners for routine court matters such as arraignments, court payment issues and specific other matters that routinely require a person’s presence in court. “It’s a wonderful program that has made it more convenient and better for security and contraband,” Ward said while giving a visual tour of the process Tuesday afternoon. “We are handling fewer people and making it more efficient and safer,” said Wiggin who said courthouse safety is always a concern. “We want to avoid the Donnybrooks like we had a few years ago in Laconia District Court,” he said, referring to the courtroom attack of a man being arraigned for a double homicide by the relatives of from preceding page social network with start-up funds six, seven and eight years ago, can reap big rewards. Peter Thiel, the venture capitalist who sits on Facebook’s board of directors, invested $500,000 in the company back in 2004. He’s selling nearly 17 million of his shares in the IPO, which means he’ll get some $640 million. The offering values Facebook, whose 2011 revenue was $3.7 billion, at as much as $104 billion. The skyhigh valuation has its skeptics, who worry about signs of a slowdown and Facebook’s ability to grow in the mobile space when it was created with desktop computers in mind. Rival Google Inc., whose revenue stood at $38 billion last year, has a market capitalization of $207 billion.

the victims. But like all new things, the video conferencing system has it drawbacks and bugaboos — initially from the short learning curve for filling out paperwork by corrections officials that is typically filled out by circuit court staff to the more crucial matter that the antiquated booking area was not designed for video conferencing. “When we have video arraignments we have to shut down the booking room,” Ward said who noted that every sound in the entire booking area, including routine conversations, doors opening and closing, even a mop bucket being rolled along the floor can be heard and is disruptive to the court procedure. “It’s echoey.” As one example, Ward said there were eight arraignments Monday and at one point, two police officers (a Belknap County Sheriff’s deputy and a Laconia Police officer) were forced to wait in their cruisers with their respective prisoners for an ongoing video arraignment to end. Another drawback said Ward is that arraignments are scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. but must stop at 11 a.m. because he needs all his staff to facilitate lunch for the inmates. Arraignments begin again at 1 p.m. He also said each arraignment takes at least two members of his staff away from their routine assignments. While Ward said he is definitely optimistic about the program and says each day gets a little less confusing as he and his staff become more familiar with the equipment and the process. Jesse Friedman, the head of the Belknap County Public Defenders Office, is less than convinced. “I would be lying if I thought due process was being afforded to all of our clients,” Friedman said. “It short changes a defendant’s right to be brought before a court.” One of Friedman’s key issues is protecting the confidentiality of conversations between attorneys see next page

from preceding page and clients. He said there are nine attorneys in his office and, unlike Merrimack County that has one attorney in the jail with the accused and a second one in the courtroom before the judge, his staff is too thin. Initially, he said defense attorneys tried representing their clients by standing next to the defendant in the jail’s booking room. But lawyers told him they felt more effective standing before the judge in the courtroom. Being in the courtroom also allows the defense attorney direct access to the various prosecutors, the judge and other courthouse facilities. But being in the courtroom limits the private and often spontaneous conversations the accused need to have with their lawyers. A solution, one that Ward and Freidman both said was a big improvement, was the installation of a secure telephone line whereby the accused can leave the booking room with the video camera, enter a second booking room and converse via telephone with his or her attorney. The procedure also requires a private location for the lawyer who is in the courthouse but who must leave the courtroom to hold what was previously a whispered conversation. Friedman also believes the defendant has the right to see and hear everything that goes on in the courtroom and not just the fixed video image he or she sees on what is about an 8-inch screen. He said it’s a little better now than when the system initially went on line about three weeks ago, because the entire courtroom can been seen but initially the camera was fixed only on Judge Jim Carroll. He also noted that other N.H. courts with this system have multiple cameras in the courtroom while Laconia has one. He is also concerned the booking rooms are not private and the phone conversations between his attorneys and their clients could be overheard. “Due process requires confidentially before, during,
and after and court appearance,” Freidman said. Friedman’s other concern was the paperwork process. Completed paperwork must be faxed from the jail to the courthouse so the judge and the defense attorneys can review it before the arraignment begins. “Yesterday we had an arraignment at 10 a.m. and only got the paperwork about five minutes before,” he said. Despite his stated concerns, Friedman said the system has some true advantages — especially in cases where defendants are being held in distant jails or in cases that involve the non-payment of fees and child support matters. And if the arraignment — the official reading of the charges against an accused — was the only thing that happened, he said he would be more comfortable with the process. But combined with an arraignment is typically a preliminary bail hearing where a judge makes an initial determination as to the conditions surrounding whether or not the accused can be freed from incarceration. Very often, said Freidman, issues arise in the arraignment that can have a profound effect on the determination of initial bail and conditions and it is typically a 10-day window before the accused gets his or her formal bail hearing. “One miscommunication and someone spends 10 days in jail,” Friedman said. “That’s a very long time to be denied a basic freedom.” Friedman said in his opinion, a small county like Belknap County should reconsider the arraignment portion of the video conferencing system. “It’s just a two minute drive from the jail to the courthouse,” he said. Friedman said he did want it noted that Judge Carroll, Wiggin, Ward, local police and all of the staff at the 4th Circuit Court have worked cooperatively and willingly to try to resolve any and all issues as they arise.
CASTRO from page one Cuban artists and entertainers are also finding it easier to visit the U.S. due to an easing of travel restrictions by President Barack Obama’s administration. Castro, 50, is a noted advocate of gay rights and head of Cuba’s National Center for Sex Education. She has pushed for the island to legalize gay marriage for years, so far without success. She recently praised Obama’s stance in support of same sex marriage, and said her father, President Raul Castro, also favors such a measure, though he has not said so publically. It will not be Mariela Castro’s first visit to the United States. She was granted a visa to attend an event in Los Angeles in 2002, during Republican President George W. Bush’s administration, and also made stops in Virginia and Washington. Prominent Americans have also been frequent visitors to Cuba. Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter came last March, and a bi-partisan delegation led by
U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy, a Vermont Democrat, was here in February, meeting with President Castro as well as an imprisoned American subcontractor. Carmelo Mesa-Lago, the dean of Cuba economywatchers and an expert at the University of Pittsburgh, said Cuba has long had a large presence at the LASA conference, without sparking much protest. “Academic exchanges like these are not new, but what’s different in this case is who she is,” he said. The LASA International Congress, which includes hundreds of sessions on academic topics, takes place May 23-26 in San Francisco, a city closely associated with the history of the gay rights movement. Cuba’s state-run press said Castro will be among 40 Cuban experts in attendance. According to the website of the New York Public Library, Castro is also to take part in a May 29 talk with Rea Carey, director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, about international gay rights, as well as sexual identity and orientation in Cuba.

Skip Lane of Jaffrey, whose son 17-year-old son Craig was stabbed to death in a January, 1989 gas station robbery in Peterborough, reflects on his son’s life following a dedication ceremony in Stewart Park in Laconia for the N.H. Homicide Memorial Garden. (Roger Amsden photo for the Laconia Daily Sun)
MEMORIAL from page one that the memorial dedication came just the day after the state’s Cold Case Unit had made an arrest in a 2001 murder case. ‘’All of you have lost a loved one and this garden, which is a symbol of life, is important memorial to them,’’ said Delaney. Ward 6 City Councilor Ava Doyle also spoke and said that the garden would be ‘’a place of peace and solace’’ for those who have had a loved one murdered. She also praised Doucette, who along with her granddaughter Jillian Reynolds, formed the local Parents of Murdered Children chapter two years ago. Reynolds was only 18 months old when her mother was shot to death by her estranged husband in Plymouth and was raised by Doucette, her grandmother. Doucette said that after her daughter’s murder, the New Hampshire
Attorney General’s office put her in touch with a group in Concord which brought together family members whose children had been murdered and that the group meetings helped her to deal with her grief. “After I had my terrible loss, I found out that talking about what had happened to my daughter with other people who had the same experience helped me heal. Talking and letting your feelings out is very important to healing. But I don’t know how I would feel or how I could cope with it if the murder wasn’t solved,’’ she said. Wendy Mills of Laconia, whose son Robbie was killed when his bicycle was robbed 14 years ago, said that the memorial park serves as a place of unity for those who have lost a loved one. “This park is an absolute symbol of what parents of murdered children have gotten together to do to support each other, to move forward with our lives and comfort each other,” she said. see next page

TRAYVON from page 2 “Bleeding tenderness to his nose, and a small laceration to the back of his head. All injuries have minor bleeding,” paramedic Michael Brandy wrote about Zimmerman’s injuries in the report. Whether Zimmerman was injured in the Feb. 26 altercation with Martin has been a key question. The 28-year-old Zimmerman has claimed selfdefense and said he only fired because the unarmed teenager attacked him. Zimmerman was not arrested for weeks because he invoked the Florida’s law that does not require a person to retreat in the face of a serious threat. He was released on bail and is in hiding while he awaits trial on a second-degree murder charge. He has pleaded not guilty. The investigator who called for Zimmerman’s arrest, Christopher Serino, told prosecutors in March that the fight could have been avoided if Zimmerman had remained in his vehicle and awaited the arrival of law enforcement. He said Zimmerman, after leaving his vehicle, could have identified himself to Martin as a concerned citizen and talked to him instead of confronting him. He said there is no evidence Martin was involved in any criminal activity. The lawyer for Martin’s parents seized on the investigator’s recommendation. “The police concluded that none of this would have happened if George Zimmerman hadn’t gotten out
of his car,” said attorney Ben Crump. “If George Zimmerman hadn’t gotten out of his car, they say it was completely avoidable. That is the headline.” A separate report written by Serino at the crime scene says Martin had $40.15, Skittles candy, a red lighter, headphones and a photo pin in his pocket. A single 9mm shell casing was found near Martin’s body. New witness accounts also emerged Thursday. A witness, whose name is redacted, told investigators he saw “a black male, wearing a dark colored hoodie,” on top of a white or Hispanic male who was yelling for help. The witness, who was looking out the sliding glass door at his home about 30 feet away, said he saw the black male throwing punches “MMA (mixed martial arts) style.” He said he told the fighters he was calling the police. He said that as he was making the call, he heard a shot. He looked outside and saw the person who had been on top laid out on the grass as if he had been shot. He said the other fighter was standing on the sidewalk, talking to another person with a flashlight. The case has become a national racial flashpoint because the Martin family and supporters contend Zimmerman singled Martin out because he was black. Two acquaintances paint an unflattering picture of Zimmerman in police interviews. A distraught woman tells an investigator that she stays away from Zimmerman because he’s racist and because of things he’s done to her in the past, but she see next page
MURDER from page 3 and Collins knew each other and had “a relationship that was based on business and friendship.” Strelzin said Collins was on investigators’ radar screen back in 2001, as were other suspects, “but not enough evidence rose to the surface.” George Jodoin’s business partner in the “I Buy and Sell Everything Pawn Shop, Glenn Baroody, was in
court Thursday but declined to comment. George Jodoin, 50, was a world traveler with a penchant for adventure and sports. He was planning a trip to Thailand and Baroody was going to care for the numerous livestock he kept at his Auburn farmhouse. It was Baroody who found him dead in his bed when he came to the house to get instructions on feeding the animals.
from preceding page For some at the ceremony, the unsolved murder of a loved one is still a hard burden to bear. Skip Lane of Jaffrey said the 1989 murder of his 17-year-old son Craig in Peterborough is still unsolved. ‘’He was working in a gas station and they stabbed him in the neck and left him there to die. Nobody I know thinks they’re going to outlive their children. But it happened and it’s still a mystery as to who killed him,’’ said Lane. Others have more recent memories of the loss of
a loved one. Heather Hatch of Grafton said that her brother, William, 24, and his girlfriend, Crystal Farnham, 23, were both killed last June and were shot multiple times. Their accused killer, Bobby Lacombe, is scheduled to stand trial in October. ‘’He (the accused) was my brother’s best friend. I just don’t know how something like this could happen. But I’m here to keep the memory of my brother alive,’’ said Hatch.

BELMONT — The players on the new girls’ lacrosse team at Belmont High School are competing at a sub-varsity level in their inaugural season, most players are new to the sport and only two members of the team are older than freshmen. Despite these factors, the team has excelled this season, posting a record of six wins, two losses. It has three games left this season, with the last home game at 4:30 p.m. this afternoon against Merrimack Valley. “Beginning the season, I had hoped we would be competitive but didn’t expect to be doing this well,” said coach Wayne Keriensieck. He said the team has “blown away all expectations” and that their success is due to what he observes as a natural athleticism of the players. “Once they got the basics of catching, throwing and pickup up ground balls, they took off.” Perhaps youthful exuberance is the team’s secret weapon. The team has one senior and one junior.
Those upper-classmen share the team with 11 freshmen and seven eighth graders. The vast majority of them had never picked up a lacrosse stick before joining. That was the case with Kayla Robbins, a captain and the team’s lone senior. She decided to join the team because, “I’d seen people playing it, I thought it looked cool.” She found the sport to be fun and a way to meet and connect with new people. Asked about their success, Robbins said the newness of the sport keeps the energy level high for her and her teammates. “All the girls are excited to play, they’re excited at every game... it gives you that extra drive to win.” Robbins felt it was “a good thing to have this sport, it gives another option.” Aside from lacrosse, girls at Belmont High School have only softball or track as spring sport options. At the other end of the age spectrum, eighth see next page
from preceding page didn’t elaborate on what happened between them. “I don’t at all know who this kid was or anything else. But I know George, and I know that he does not like black people. He would start something. He’s very confrontational. It’s in his blood. We’ll just say that,” the unidentified woman says in an audio recording.
A man whose name was deleted from the audio told investigators that he worked with Zimmerman in 2008 for a few months. It wasn’t clear which company it was. The man, who described his heritage as “Middle Eastern,” said that when he first started many employees didn’t like him. Zimmerman seized on this, the employee said, and bullied him.

Cody Ross drives in 4 & Red Sox beat Rays 5-3 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Cody Ross homered and drove in four runs, Felix Doubront won his third consecutive start and the Boston Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-3 on Thursday night. Ross extended Boston’s lead to 5-2 on a two-run single off reliever Wade Davis with two outs in the eighth. Doubront (4-1) allowed two runs and six hits over 5 2-3 innings. The left-hander was hit on the ear by a ball during batting practice Tuesday and cleared one day later to make his scheduled start. Matt Moore (1-4) gave up three runs and five hits in six innings for Tampa Bay, which had its fourgame winning streak snapped. Alfredo Aceves, the fifth Boston reliever, got four outs for his eighth save. He allowed B.J Upton’s RBI single with two outs in the eighth.
After falling behind in the count 0-2, Ross worked a bases-loaded walk off Moore to put the Red Sox up 1-0 in the first. Moore avoided further damage by striking out Daniel Nava to end the inning. Boston went ahead 2-0 on Marlon Byrd’s secondinning homer. Ross made it 3-0 with his seventh homer, on an 0-2 pitch with two outs in the third. Jeff Keppinger got the Rays within 3-1 on an RBI single in the third. Upton reached base with two outs when Kelly Shoppach was charged with catcher’s interference and went to second when Luke Scott was hit by a pitch. Rich Thompson, who has played in 1,388 minor league games, cut the Tampa Bay deficit to 3-2 with his first big league hit, a run-scoring single in the fourth.
DISCO from page 2 death at age 63. Summer died of cancer Thursday morning in Naples, Fla., said her publicist Brian Edwards. Her family released a statement saying they “are at peace celebrating her extraordinary life and her continued legacy.” Luminaries from Aretha Franklin to Dolly Parton
and Barbra Streisand mourned the loss, as did President Barack Obama, who said he and Michelle were saddened to hear of the passing of the five-time Grammy winner. “Her voice was unforgettable, and the music industry has lost a legend far too soon,” he said. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to Donna’s family and her dedicated fans.”
from preceding page Emily Ennis is also in her first year of lacrosse training. “I saw a flyer at my school and I thought it could be different. I thought, why not try it.” Ennis plays soccer and basketball and thinks lacrosse is a unique challenge, especially with the greater complexity of rules. “I like it a lot, I’m definitely going to keep playing.” Kreiensieck reported that it took about $400 to get the team started, all expenses covered by private donations and fund raising efforts. Parents have volunteered to provide transportation, refreshments and other supporting functions. As a club team, Belmont is competing against junior varsity squads from other schools. Kreiensieck said that’s fair competition for his athletes, both in terms
of age and ability. He thinks the team will continue with the current arrangement for at least one more year before petitioning the school district to sponsor the team as a varsity sport. He figures the team needs at least 18 players to support a varsity program, so as long as the current level of participation remains, things look good for the team’s future. While it’s necessary to look forward, Kreiensieck and his team are enjoying where they are presently. Robbins said she is looking forward to their final home game this evening, and are hoping a healthy contingent of local fans show up to see what the team can do and cheer on their efforts. “It lets the girls know they have support from the school behind them. Having a lot of people here gives us that extra oomph to do well.”

John and Cathy Bentwood selected for Granite State Award by Plymouth State University PLYMOUTH — Plymouth State University will present the 2012 Granite State Award to John and Cathy Bentwood of Plymouth for their commitment to service reflecting Plymouth State University’s motto, Ut Prosim (That I may serve), at the May 19 graduation ceremony. “The Bentwoods, as a medical team (he a surgeon and she a registered nurse) and as engaged citizens, have served to reduce human suffering by providing direct aid and assistance to individuals, and guidance and leadership for organizations that offer aid both locally and internationally,” says PSU President Sara Jayne Steen. Like so many New Hampshire people, the Bentwoods came to New Hampshire for a brief sojourn and have stayed for nearly 40 years. What some people see as accomplishments, the Bentwoods see as opportunities. Among their many “opportunities” are creation and maintenance of a free annual cancer screening clinic, a regional free health clinic At left: John and Cathy Bentwood. (Courtesy photo)
for the uninsured, and a new shelter for people who are homeless. “Skin cancers were on the rise. John was talented at identifying and treating these lesions and I was pretty good at starting things that seem doable,” Cathy remembers. One day every July was dedicated to diagnosing skin lesions. Between 90–110 folks would begin lining up outside the door at 8:30 a.m. We didn’t break for lunch; just saw everyone until the last patient left. We got a lot done in an extremely efficient, neighborly way, and no one paid a dime (though sometimes patients delivered homemade cookies the following week),” she said. The regional free clinic, a team effort, was a little different, but a natural extension nonetheless. The cancer screening was available to everyone across the economic spectrum. The Free Clinic was created for folks who had jobs, but found insurance unaffordable. The Bentwoods are currently excited to be part of a local collaboration of civilians and veterans who are working to solve the housing shortage for those who’ve enlisted in the military. This national, gold standard, Soldier On project will be the first of its kind in New Hampshire. Beyond the Plymouth area, both have been medical volunteers providing services to people in need, whether in Honduras, Haiti, Africa or post-Katrina Louisiana. In addition to their medical help, the Bentwoods have fostered children, been engaged as court-appointed advocates for children at risk, sponsored and resettled refugee families from Vietnam, Rwanda and Honduras, and developed educational presentations for New Hampshire legislators by partnering with New Hampshire Peace Action. The Bentwoods say it has been an honor to be engaged with others in so many capacities. “Successfully advocating for affordable health care—now that would have been an accomplishment; closing the shelter because homelessness was eradicated would have been an accomplishment. We simply became involved in some very satisfying endeavors,” they said.

PLYMOUTH — Plymouth State University’s ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability has led to its being named among North America’s greenest colleges by the Princeton Review. The Princeton Review, in collaboration with the Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council, noted PSU has demonstrated ‘notable commitments to sustainability in their academic offerings, campus infrastructure, activities and career preparation.’ PSU President Sara Jayne Steen said the students, faculty, and staff are dedicated to sustainability, and the ranking recognizes the University’s achievements. “When you see the campus efforts through the EcoHouse, for example, a living and learning laboratory in which students make sustainability decisions

about the building, you are impressed,” said Steen. “Sustainability at PSU is a campus-wide initiative.” The Review notes that “there is a rising interest among students in attending colleges that practice, teach, and support environmentally responsible choices.” Plymouth State was also included in last year’s greenest college ranking by the Princeton Review. Brian Eisenhauer, PSU’s Director of Environmental Sustainability, said he is heartened that the University’s sustainability efforts are being recognized. “Plymouth State University has a long commitment to sustainability in operations and in our educational efforts,” said Eisenhauer. “Our achievements are only made possible through the hard work of many students, staff, and faculty, and it is a great honor to see them recognized.”

Brownie troop helps stock Common Food Pantry Bank of NH & LACONIA — A group of energetic girls from Troop 10608 gathered at the Laconia Area Center of Community Action recently spent a Saturday stocking the shelves of the Common Food Pantry with food donated from the annual US Post Office food drive. What usually takes an hour, the girls accomplished in minutes as bags of food were passed along hand to hand in very orderly fashion. Many thanks are offered by the CAP to the Laconia Post Office for collecting and donating the food and special thanks to Brownie Troop 10608 for lending a helping hand.

Bank of NH will offer a presentation to provide assistance in understanding banking services and programs, as well as answer questions related to these banking services. Bank of NH (formerly Laconia Savings Bank) is a longtime sponsor of the Land Trust’s first-time homebuyer seminars, which are designed to take the mystery out of the home-buying process, especially for those with limited financial resources. The upcoming 5-week session is scheduled to begin on May 29 at the Taylor Community, Woodside Building. The series runs on Tuesday evenings from May 29 through June 26 from 6 to 8 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.

Page 20 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, May 18, 2012
Dear Annie: I am married to “Chris,” a wonderful man. He was previously married and has major trust issues because of his ex-wife. I can handle most of this, but one thing has become worse over the past two years. Chris has this idea that I wear outfi ts that show too much skin and attract other men. But, Annie, I don’t wear clothes like that. In fact, I gave away whatever I used to own that he didn’t like (spaghetti straps, skirts above the knee, etc.). But he still says I look “too provocative.” I wear only pants and high-necked shirts with sleeves, but it’s still not appropriate enough for him. I offered to let him shop for me, but he refuses. I don’t want to keep fighting about something so dumb -- and that I know is due to his cheating ex-wife. But I have done as much as possible to show him I love and respect him. What more can I do? -- Paying the Price for the Ex Dear Paying: Chris has become obsessed with controlling your appearance, and this is unhealthy. Right now, it wouldn’t matter what you wore. Since he is getting worse, we strongly urge you to get some professional counseling, preferably together. Chris must learn to keep a lid on his insecurities so he can function more rationally, and a counselor will help you work on coping skills. If he doesn’t get a grip on this, it could escalate into something that threatens not only your marriage, but also your personal well-being. Dear Annie: My younger sister, “Debbie,” is planning a fall wedding. Our father and his wife have been severely addicted to pain pills for most of their 20-year marriage. They have attended birthday parties, barbeques and weddings completely looped. It’s not a pretty sight. Because of this (and other reasons), I chose to distance myself and have had little contact with them for 10 years. A few years ago, Debbie did the same because she was tired of being embarrassed,
worried, stressed and scared for their health. Debbie doesn’t want to invite Dad to the wedding. She didn’t even want him to know about it, but he found out from other relatives. She shouldn’t have to worry about whether Dad is going to fall down at the ceremony because he is high, or whether he can keep his balance while being introduced to her new in-laws. Is this the right decision? -Bride’s Sister Dear Sister: Debbie does not have to invite Dad if doing so will spoil her day and make her miserable, but she should take responsibility for her decision and tell him the reason. However, there is another possible solution. She could enlist the help of a reliable guest (or hire a professional sober companion) to be the “caregiver” for Dad and his wife, making sure they don’t get out of control and create a scene. Other readers have done this and found it quite helpful. Dear Annie: The letter from “Mom in Connecticut” brought back wonderful memories regarding thank-you notes. I am one of four children, now in our 50s and 60s. When we were younger, our parents had a hard and fast rule: We could play with or wear our gifts on the day we received them, but we could not touch them again until we had written our thank-you notes. Mom provided the notes and colored pencils, so that we could draw pictures until we were old enough to write more. This started when we were so young that we never knew any different. To this day, I send a handwritten thank-you note. I figure the gift-giver spent time and effort to select, purchase and send a gift to me. The least I can do to show my appreciation is send a personal note on real stationery. As my parents used to say, it’s what nice people do. -- Born in Connecticut, Now in Arizona

DAILY CROSSWORD TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES
by Paul Gilligan
by Darby Conley
By Holiday Mathis It’s an actual path that leads to a different you. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll require several mood boosts throughout the day. A hot shower, a funny comic, a beautiful day dream, a prayer -- all ways to keep yourself feeling good. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). No one is pushing you, but you’ll push yourself. You want to be first, the clear victor in the game. You’ll catch your breath and make a final sprint past the winning post. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll take control of your schedule. You’ll also realize that just because you signed up for certain tasks doesn’t mean you have to do them the same way all the time. There is more leeway than you once believed. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). With wide-shut eyes, you watch the movie in your mind. You’ll experience the scenes with a vivid clarity that would have been impossible to achieve with all of the distractions of yesterday. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your relationship with a certain person is changing rapidly. The better you get to know this one the more opportunity you see in your future together. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 18). You’re exceedingly clever and will figure out what needs to happen in order for you to get what you want. Someone new finds your personality enchanting. You’ll reorganize your finances and sock away money monthly. November brings a big purchase. December and February are very romantic. Cancer and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 2, 33, 25 and 16.
by Chad Carpenter
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Thinking is the brain’s natural sorting process, and you’re enjoying your own organizational process. You welcome new thoughts because they represent learning and fresh energy coming into your life. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). All animals have territorial zones around them, and you’re an animal, too. If someone encroaches on your territory, you’ll bristle. Out of respect, you’ll be careful not to cross the lines with others. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Long ago, you stopped yourself from experiencing an emotion, and now it resurfaces, wanting more than ever to be expressed. Work your way through it. It will evaporate when it completes a cycle. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll feel the need to relax, though it’s not as easy for you to do this now. You’ll have to go out of your way to release built-up tension. The stress easing out of your being will be a wonderful sensation. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Some are comfortable with mediocrity, but you are not. You’ll work harder to make yourself remarkable. You’ll strive for higher scores and get impressive results. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You just made a plan, and it already needs to be altered to fit the new circumstances. That you’re able to adjust easily is a skill in and of itself -- and one you’ll be using often in the weeks to come. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll avoid restlessness by changing the routine. You’ll do something that’s different from what you’d normally be doing, and it’s more than a single act.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, May 18, the 139th day of 2012. There are 227 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 18, 1926, evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson vanished while visiting a beach in Venice, Calif. (McPherson reappeared more than a month later, saying she’d escaped after being kidnapped and held for ransom, an account that was greeted with skepticism in some quarters.) On this date: In 1012, Theophylact, son of Gregory, Count of Tusculum, became Pope Benedict VIII, succeeding Pope Sergius IV. In 1642, the Canadian city of Montreal was founded by French colonists. In 1765, about one-fourth of Montreal was destroyed by a fire. In 1896, the Supreme Court, in Plessy v. Ferguson, endorsed “separate but equal” racial segregation, a concept renounced 58 years later in Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka. In 1910, Halley’s Comet passed by earth, brushing it with its tail.
