Selectmen weren’t convinced Wesley Woods has charitable purpose BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

GILFORD — Although the Selectboard refused to explain its decision to deny the New England Deaconess Association (NEDA) a tax exemption for the Wesley Woods

retirement community, Town Administrator Scott Dunn has outlined the board’s reasoning in a letter to Reverent Herbert Taylor, president and chief executive officer of Deaconess Abundant Life Communities, which is affiliated with the

Methodist Church. The NEDA requested a tax exemption on 22 residential units housing reserved for the elderly and disabled. Last year the NEDA sought an exemption from property tax as a religious institution, which

the board denied. In renewing its request, the NEDA claims that as a charitable organization providing housing at less than market rents it is entitled to pay the town 10-percent of the shelter rent charged to see GILFORD page 10

Ex-Rutgers student gets 30 days in webcam/ suicide case

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — A former Rutgers University student who used a webcam to spy on his gay roommate was sentenced Monday to just 30 days in jail — a punishment that disappointed some activists but came as a relief to others who feared he would be made a scapegoat for his fellow freshman’s suicide. Dharun Ravi, 20, could have gotten 10 years behind bars for his part in a case that burst onto front pages when Tyler Clementi threw himself to his death off the George Washington Bridge. Instead, Superior Court Judge Glenn Berman gave Ravi a month in jail, placed him on three years’ probation and ordered him to get counseling and pay $10,000 toward a program to help victims of hate crimes. “Our society has every right to expect zero tolerance for intolerance,” the judge said. Prosecutor Bruce Kaplan said he will appeal the sentence, see WEBCAM page 16

Catholic leaders sue Obama over birth control mandate NEW YORK (AP) — Roman Catholic leaders opened a new front against the Obama administration mandate that employers provide workers birth control coverage, filing federal lawsuits Monday on behalf of dioceses, schools and health care agencies that argued the requirement violates religious freedom. Among the plaintiffs is the University of Notre Dame, which in February had praised President Barack Obama for pledging to accommodate religious groups and find a way to soften the rule. Notre Dame president, the Rev. John Jenkins,

said the school had since decided to sue because “progress has not been encouraging” in talks with administration officials. The lawsuits have been filed in eight states and the District of Columbia by the Archdioceses of Washington and New York, the Michigan Catholic Conference, Catholic Charities in Illinois, Mississippi, Missouri and Indiana, health care agencies in New York and two dioceses in Texas. “We have tried negotiation with the administration and legislation with the Congress, and we’ll keep at it, but there’s still no fix,” said New York Cardinal Timo-

thy Dolan, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. “Time is running out, and our valuable ministries and fundamental rights hang in the balance, so we have to resort to the courts now.” Erin Shields, a spokeswoman for the Health and Human Services Department, said Monday the agency does not comment on pending litigation. The liberal advocacy group Catholics United accused the bishops of serving a “right-wing political agenda.” Health and Human Services adopted the see CATHOLICS page 8

NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (AP) — A man survived a plunge of at least 180 feet over Niagara Falls in an apparent suicide attempt Monday — only the third person known to have lived after going over the falls without a safety device. Niagara Parks Police said witnesses reported seeing the man climb over a railing 20 to 30 feet out over the Horseshoe Falls at 10:20 a.m. and “deliberately jump” into the Niagara River. Seriously injured,

he surfaced in the lower Niagara River basin near the Journey Behind the Falls observation platform and managed to make it to shore on his own. “He waded ashore,” said Platoon Chief Dan Orescanin of the Niagara Falls, Ontario, Fire Department. “He must have gotten swept into an eddy, floated over there and was able to get out on his own. “That’s another stroke of luck,” Orescanin said. “If he was in the main current,

he would have been swept down river.” Orescanin said the man was conscious and talking at first but got quiet. He appeared to have chest injuries, including broken ribs and a collapsed lung, Orescanin said. The man was airlifted to Hamilton General Hospital with what police initially said were life-threatening injuries. Hospital spokeswoman Agnes Bongers said later see NIAGARA FALLS page 13

CHICAGO (AP) — President Barack Obama and leaders around the globe locked down an exit path from the war in Afghanistan, affirming Monday that they will close the largely stalemated conflict at the end of 2014, a strategy that means

their troops will still be fighting and dying for another two-plus years. Gathered in Obama’s hometown, the sprawling coalition of 50 NATO members and allies declared an “irreversible transition” that will put Afghan forces in the

lead of the combat mission by the middle of next year. Even in a backup role, though, the U.S. forces and all the rest will still face combat and attacks until the war’s end. see NATO page 10

The United States of Slot Machines A surprising fact: Gamblers spent more last year at commercial casinos in Indiana than they did at nonIndian casinos in all but three other states — not surprisingly, Nevada, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The 11 casinos and two racinos (horse racing tracks with slots) are the Hoosier State’s third-largest source of tax revenues. Cleary, the idea that gambling is sinful has vanished in much of the heartland — Iowa has 18 casinos — and increasingly on the coasts. Or let’s just say that the immorality attached to the activity and to preying on the working class, lonely elders and other vulnerable groups that flock to casinos has faded before the god of lower taxes. But that easy-come of living off gamblers seems to be vanishing as nearby states get in on the action. Indiana has relied on attracting players from neighboring Kentucky and Ohio. Kentucky still doesn’t allow casinos, but Ohio has succumbed. The Horseshoe Casino in Cleveland just opened, the Hollywood Toledo is about to debut, and the Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati is a mere year away. Like Indiana, Ohio sits just over the river from Kentucky and will be competing for its gamblers. As result, Indiana expects to lose about $100-million of the $800-million it had been collecting in gambling tax revenue. And that’s the casino story. In the beginning (the Great Depression), there was only Nevada. After five more decades, New Jersey let in casinos to bring ailing Atlantic City back to life. New Jersey is now losing customers to Pennsylvania. And as California becomes home to big new Indian casinos, Las Vegas will lose business, as well. More than half the states currently have casino gambling. The Foxwoods Resort Casino in semi-rural eastern Connecticut is the biggest casino in our hemisphere. The Mohegan Sun casino 14 miles away is the second-largest casino in our hemisphere. When Mohegan Sun opened, some envisioned the two tribe-run casinos

eating into each other’s business. But they both did well because the bordering states of New York, Massachusetts and Rhode Island didn’t permit casino gambling. Players from out of state have provided about half the $6-billion of gambling taxes that have gone into Connecticut’s coffers since Foxwoods became a full-blown casino 20 years ago. Last fall, New York state opened a casino at the Aqueduct racetrack in Queens. Gov. Andrew Cuomo seeks to build a hotel and a giant convention center there. Meanwhile, Massachusetts recently passed a law allowing three major casinos. And Rhode Island’s slot parlor on a former greyhound racing track has significantly cut into the Connecticut casinos’ business. Slots are where the big money comes from, providing over 70-percent of gambling revenues at most casinos. To keep up and add sexiness to what resembled a giant shopping mall in the Connecticut woods, Foxwoods built a new luxury hotel project. MGM Grand at Foxwoods opened with 800 new rooms, 1,400 more slots and a theater seating 4,000 — just in time for the 2008 financial meltdown. Foxwoods now owes its lenders a burdensome $2.3-billion. The enterprise could consider restructuring the debt, except it remains unclear whether a casino on sovereign tribal land can avail itself of federal Chapter 11 bankruptcy. As gambling becomes widespread, clearly more of the money comes from locals. That is money the same people could have spent in other parts of the economy. Some state officials argue that with casinos flashing lights smack across their borders, they must already cope with the problems and costs of gambling, so they might as well enter the game. They may have a point, but it’s a shabby scene nonetheless. (A member of the Providence Journal editorial board, Froma Harrop writes a nationally syndicated column from that city. She has written for such diverse publications as The New York Times, Harper’s Bazaar and Institutional Investor.)

Money for all those traffic lights could have gone to animal shelter To the editor, Whoever thought of putting up all those traffic lights in downtown? That is the craziest thing I have ever seen! At one time there were working mills downtown and lots of people worked in them. Those workers never had that many lights and got through town fine. Why then, now that the mills have closed, do we need all those lights now? The money could have been spent on things more important, such as; an animal shelter, better paved streedts; things for the kids to

play on in the park; a shelter for the homelss. There are a lot of things that money would have helped a lot more than six or seven lights on one street! We need to get some new people to run for office in Franklin that will spend the taxpayers money more wisely. Act now! If you have any suggetions about the shelter or anything else please call the Franklin City Hall or the Shelter at 934-4132. Diana Field Franklin


LETTERS Meredith will have 4 reps accountable for its needs, not just 2 To the editor, Every 10 years, the Legislature is charged with redrawing its districts to reflect changes in population. The federal Constitution requires that every vote have equal weight. This year, the House Special Committee on Redistricting had a unique challenge: to apply a new state constitutional provision that requires towns and wards with populations meeting a threshold population to receive a dedicated representative. For the first time, the House was challenged with balancing the state and federal constitutions. As most should know, the federal Constitution is the supreme law of the land. The 14th amendment provides for equal representation under the law. If a district has too few people for the amount of representatives it receives, it is over represented, often at the cost of another district, which may be under represented as a result. The redistricting committee, appropriately set guidelines to ensure that the redistricting plan for the New Hampshire House would be constitutional and not have excessive deviation. Meredith has enough population to receive at least one dedicated representative of its own. It does not have enough for twp. Gilford has enough for two, but would be under represented if given only two. It is necessary that both towns share representation with another town in order to provide equal representation. Here are some major points. Of course there is a lot of procedural misinformation in the letter, but I’m not sure we need to get in the weeds and respond to each point. There were no plans presented to the committee that were both constitutional and gave Meredith its own district. The committee spent possibly hundreds of hours attempting to mitigate situations like we face in Meredith and Gilford. Their conclusion was that the only way to ensure each vote carries equal weight in our county would be to combine towns. The fact is that instead of one or two representatives, Meredith will elect four, in tandem with Gilford. If Meredith has a concern, it will have four representatives accountable to its needs, not one or two. Sharing representation is not a burden, it is a ben-

efit. It benefits both communities. Ultimately, the court will decide whether the plan meets constitutional standards. I find it hard to believe that the court will force the legislature to appropriate representation in a manner that would cause us to disregard federal constitutional requirements. Towns do not have constitutional rights. People do. As much as we’d love to have passed a plan allocating representation strictly according to the 2006 constitutional amendment, it is not possible to do. Furthermore, to address the phony rhetoric regarding Speaker O’Brien, I understood when Republicans became the majority in Concord that if you are going to bring fundamental change to an institution, there will be those who will fight to defend the status quo. That includes a number of people who are ideologically opposed to our efforts, such as the Concord Monitor, Portsmouth Herald, Keene Sentinel and other left-leaning media outlets; or special interests, such as the labor unions; and some who have personality differences who will be warmly embraced by the first two groups to attempt to create a narrative or echo chamber to achieve their goals. However, this House and the House Speaker has accomplished most of what we set out to do. The first goal was always to create jobs, and we have taken huge strides in that regard. The numbers bear this out, since the last Election Day, unemployment has dropped by 1-percent, and New Hampshire’s unemployment rate is among the lowest in the nation. In fact, there are more than 10,000 New Hampshire residents who are now working, and more than 4,500 fewer who are unemployed. A good part of that is because we have made a better business climate for the state. We have made several business tax reductions relative to expanding tax credits and loss carry-forward, as well as several fee reductions for employers. While these weren’t huge, and not nearly enough in my mind, New Hampshire has gone from 50th — dead last — to 46th in the Tax Foundation rankings for business tax rankings.

LETTERS I challenge ideas & behavior without attacking people personally To the editor, In separate responses to a letter of mine, Niel Young and Terry Stewart accused me of violating the very Community Aspirations statement I had defended in that letter. I am not sure they carefully read my letter. Mr. Young admits he does not read me. I was simply trying to convey that that the Community Aspirations statement did not herald the formation of a new “language police.” Nor have I any desire to censor Mr. Young, Mr. Stewart, or anyone else and I believe I said as much in my letter. If they were censored, I would strongly object. “Tolerance,” however, does not mean that everyone had to agree all of the time. And, while everyone certainly has an equal right to express his or her ideas and opinions, it does not follow that “all ideas are created equal” and beyond questioning. Mr. Young also accused me of “attacking” Doug Lambert. I do remember writing a letter years ago in which I criticized his writing style (as Mr. Young has criticized the length of some of my letters) but I have not attacked Mr. Lambert as a person. In fact, I have met Mr. Lambert once or twice and recall having a civil conversation with him. I have not met Mr. Young but I am sure I could also have a civil conversation with him. What I HAVE done is challenge some of Mr. Lambert’s ideas and behaviors, such as his attack on Catholic Charities or

his participation in a frivolous lawsuit against the Gilford School Board. As to my statement that Mr. Young and his friends promote hatred, fear, and racial enmity, it is not a personal attack but is simply based on the written and broadcast record. It is an observation. I never called Mr. Young or his guests racists or bigots. I do not know their hearts and minds. Mr. Young states that he does not judge someone by the “color of his skin.” I am glad and accept him at his word. I do know, however, that Mr. Young and his friends promote urban myths and legends about President Obama (“Birther” conspiracy theories or that the president is a traitor or Muslim) that have been completely discredited. Perhaps they sincerely believe these lies. Perhaps they WANT to believe them. Whether or not this is “racism,” I do not know but it IS treating an AfricanAmerican differently than a white. After all, do you know of a white president who has had to put up with this crap? Perhaps “Birtherism” is not in itself “racist” but it IS part of many racist and white supremacist ideologies. Thus, one cannot help but think that perhaps at least some proponents of these lies are really just “angry white men” who are enraged that a black man with a “foreign-sounding” name is in the White House.

Bridge repair in Portsmouth example of excessive Concord spending

TO: N.H. Legislative Services FROM: Rep. Robert Kingsbury RE: Costs of Bridge Replacement What are the costs of the two bridges now being replaced in Portsmouth? The two bridges are the “Memorial Bridge” being done by New Hampshire and the “Sarah Mildred Long Bridge” being done by the State of Maine. Each State is responsible for half the costs of each bridge, I was told. I talked with individuals in Portsmouth and to

individuals in state government and both of them — perhaps being concerned about how that information might be used — said that someone else had whatever information I might be looking for. I also wanted to set up a visit to those bridges, but similar things happened to that request, and I have not yet visited either of those bridges. In my opinion both bridges failed because the gas tax money that is set aside for bridge maintenance (Part II, Article 6a) was spent for other projects, and the steel in these bridges instead of being repainted as needed, was allowed to rust out. Yet there is the much, much older (what, 1880s?) , largely steel, Brooklyn Bridge in New York City that is also over salt water, but that is still in service, versus these 1930s (?) bridges. I plan to use the information gained, in the Legislature next year, to help insure that the (Article 6a) tax money is spent for (Article 6a) purposes, because according to some reports there are some 300 bridges in New Hampshire that due to a lack of being repainted now and then are now so badly rusted that they too, are in need of being prematurely replaced. At any rate, what are the costs of replacing the two bridges in Portsmouth? Rep. Robert Kingsbury Laconia

from preceding page ment, but at least we are now heading in the right direction. Beyond this, we have passed 43 laws that in big ways and small have reduced regulations. This is a huge sea change from the past legislatures that passed many new regulations. We have not lost focus on why

we were sent here and have continued our efforts to create jobs, to bring fiscal responsibility to state government and to restore accountability. We’re going to keep moving forward on our efforts and I’m proud of what we have accomplished. Rep. Colette Worsman Meredith

To the editor, Every once in a while some person will make a statement that there is excessive spending in New Hampshire government. Scoffing, denying that there is any excessive spending, is the most common response. So for all the “doubting Thomas’s” and other scoffers, I plan to submit this one request about mishandled state spending in the follow request to Legislative Services. Premature bridge replacement, is only one of the existing examples of unnecessary spending of million and millions of dollars of state money. Given the time needed to put the words together, I could easily come up with another two or three such examples, possibly involving perhaps as much as some 2-billion mishandled dollars of state spending.

LETTERS Dr. Sam Alridge now scheduled to return home on July 1 To the editor, We received some good news from Sam Aldridge — that he is scheduled to return on July 1st. Hopefully, unlike his last deployment, that will materialize as anticipated. According to his wife, Kathy, it took 12 days for a package she sent to reach him, so if you are going to send him anything, best to do it relatively soon. We have already fielded several calls from people wanting to help, and want to thank everyone for the outpouring of support for Sam. He is the only surgeon in a very down-sized team working in rugged mountain Afghan terrain. His operating room has improved from his last tour (tent), with an actual mini-building, operat-

ing room tables, sinks, instruments and lights. He is working with great personnel attending to the medical needs of injured soldiers and civilians, and he’s also helping and teaching Afghan doctors. Typical of Sam, he still can see the beauty in the natural surroundings of the mountains around him. He did hear that “snow trout” were in a river not too far away, but opted out of posing as an Afghan to give it a try due to a lack of a fly rod, and also some minor safety concerns. He wanted to express his thanks and also to give a special hello to his LRGH family. Sandy & Everett McLaughlin Gilford

Nebraska senators worked for a days pay, then broke for cool one To the editor, I just finished reading the article in Wednesday’s Sun about the beer sales on the Nebraska-South Dakota state line. BY selling over 4-million cans of beer a year to the local Indians, business was booming with drunken Indians falling all over the place. Even the kids got into the act with many born with fetal alcohol syndrome. Difficult kids to work with if you never have and with possible funding cuts you may never get the chance. So the smarter ones decided to regulate sales and solve the problem. But with large beer bribes, this didn’t work out to good. As one senator said, “We’re

not here to protect people from themselves”. So even after trying to re-arrange the bill, more bribes came through and it finally died in committee. All was not lost as one smaller bill was passed — the prohibition against Sunday beer sales was lifted. At least the senators earned a “honest” days pay before breaking for a cool one. They must be Republicans. The next fight will be the $500-million lawsuit the Indians filed that WE the taxpayers will have to pay for if we lose. Good work guys. Jon Hoyt Bridgewater

Vote down fire truck purchase, again, & make them do right thing To the editor, Dear Gilford voters: Our selectmen are trying again to pull a fast one on all of us, with a double whammy; two nights in a row to vote on the unneeded new fire truck, obviously intended to make sure enough voters can’t make both meetings to block their goon votes. We expect that from the president, but not local selectmen. Our most intelligent and knowledgeable people in town totally disagree with that pseudo “need”. Just repair the truck and practice NORMAL GOOD maintenance, as one would do with their own equipment. If I abused

my equipment as the fire department does, I’d long ago been totally broke! Same goes for Pat Labonte and all other successful contractors in town! My personal opinion is that firemen have no interest in equipment maintenance, and the directors of the department (grossly misnamed) have no understanding of equipment or even firefighting; they’re just cheap politicians wasting our money. Any girl in town would do a better job! Let’s vote them down BOTH nights, and force them to do what is RIGHT and needed for Gilford! Jack Stephenson Gilford

To the editor, Let’s not forget about Mitt Romney the bully. The assault on a classmate was not a youthful prank. It was an attack on someone who was different. The young man must have been terrified and humiliated. It is preposterous for Mitt Romney to ask us to believe that he doesn’t remember this assault. Because he didn’t own his actions, his apology is hollow and meaningless. What in Mitt’s response showed that he has grown in his understanding of the seriousness of what he did to another human? He actually laughed in telling of his actions much like he laughed when he said he liked to fire people. Where is the empathy for other’s feelings?

We know he has not changed because we didn’t hear sincere sorrow for his victim or shame for his actions. Why didn’t he use this for a teachable moment to address the problem of the epidemic of bullying in this country? I fear that a person who exhibits such a lack of empathy in his character will not make good decisions in governing this country. Think of those who might fall victim to this lack of empathy and caring: the poor, the old, women, immigrants, gays, lesbians and minorities. He will operate as he has in the past without empathy or feelings for those he hurts and many will suffer. Character counts. Judith A. Rothemund Laconia

LETTERS SB-2 has attracted 50+% in Sanbornton only 4 of 12 times To the editor, In the many Sanbornton S-2 letters to the editor in the paper this year there have been many numbers used and many have been incorrect so here are some statistics. Sanbornton has defeated SB-2 12 times. The first time was in 1997 and the number of votes, pro and con, have varied greatly over the years. SB-2 requires a 3/5 or 60-percent super majority vote because it is a major change for a town. Many who vote yes think that if it could win on a simple majority they would have won most every year of the 12 but that isn’t true. Keep in mind that no means they want to keep Town Meeting and yes wants SB-2. In the 12 years it has been on the ballot, the greatest number to vote on it in one year was 841 and the lowest number was 468. In those 12 years the no votes got a simple majority eight times and the yes votes got a

simple majority four times. The greatest number of no votes in one year was 484 and the yes votes greatest number was 403. The largest no vote simple majority beat the yes vote by 127 and the yes votes largest simple majority win was by 77 votes. The message from Sanbornton has clearly been that they don’t want SB-2. That it lost this year, getting only 53-percent, dosn’t mean it is slowly getting closer to winning. The variations in the numbers over the years show that if it is put on the ballot next year it may lose by an even greater margin. What number of no votes would get them to leave it off the ballot for a few years? It seems like the time, money and energy spent on SB-2 could be better spent on a different cause for awhile.

You have until 6-30 to apply for low income property tax relief To the editor, It’s that time of the year again to remind readers of their opportunity to file for the N.H.

If I wrote about every exception, my columns would be too long To the editor, If more people were to read my columns instead of reading into them, they might get the main points I am trying to make. I should not have to apologize to the German people because they were not the focus of my last column. Many German parents raised their children to be good people such as the parents of Colonel Claus Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg and other courageous German officers who tried to stop Hitler and his henchmen from doing more damage in the world. Von Stauffenberg and others in the German resistance had moral courage and were cruelly killed for trying to do what what was right. My last column was about very harsh disciplinary procedures that were not uncommon in Germany prior to and during World War II that helped produce some of the worst

monsters of the Third Reich. Most Germans were not Nazis but enough of them were to wreak great havoc in Europe at the time. In the U.S. and other countries, the way serial killers are raised is well documented and produces the same results as those who committed crimes against humanity in WW II. Parental rejection of children combined with brutal punishment is not a formula for the development of healthy children who later take their unresolved childhood issues with them into adulthood. Also, because children grow up with other positive influences in their lives who help them become more resilient, children raised in very dysfunctional homes do not all turn out to be antisocial. If I were to write every exception to the rule on the topics I write about, my columns would be too long to print. Leo R. Sandy New Hampton

Belmont selectmen OK with 4 new police cruisers but 2 rescue boats another matter By Gail OBer

BELMONT — Police Chief Vincent Baiocchetti go the okay from selectmen last night to lease four police cruisers for four years each for an approximate cost of $9,417 each annually. He said the cost would cover the installation of the light bars that he will remove from four of his existing cruisers and included new cages. He said the cages from the existing Crown Victoria — a model no longer made by Ford Motor Co. — cannot be used in the new Interceptor model because the Interceptor has rear side airbags that cannot be disarmed. “I have driven one,” he told selectmen referring to the All-Wheel Drive Interceptor. “It handles nice.” With fingers crossed, Baiocchetti said he hoped the newer Interceptors would save fuel costs but while the new Fords are more fuel efficient, the price of fuel is beyond the control of all of them. Baiocchetti was allocated up to

$51,000 in his operating budget for the leases. Initially, it was hoped the department would also be able to replace the four-wheel drive vehicle but he told selectmen last night that the Dodge the department has now is working well for them and he is comfortable delaying its replacement for the time being. He also told selectmen that he would like to eventually replace all nine car radios but said each would cost at least $5,000. He noted that replacements should come sooner than later because the current car radios are more than 12 years old. In other police business, selectmen voted unanimously to award Great North Roofing, Inc. of Belmont the job of re-roofing the back of lower roof sections of the police department for $8,170. The company was one of two that submitted bids for the project. The second bid was for $9,995 from Buy Affordable Roofing. In Fire Department business, selectmen shot down a request from

Chief David Parenti, who asked the board to appropriate $7,000 from the emergency management budget to purchase a second boat to assist the existing boat during water rescues on Lake Winnisquam. Parenti framed his request by telling the board that when the department removed the 1976 pontoon-type boat from storage recently, members realized there were broken welds on the pontoons, the walls were separating from the frame and there were some flooring problems. He said it had been suggested to the town that a used boat be bought to replace this rescue boat about two years ago. His suggestion to augment what Parenti said was the only rescue boat on Lake Winnisquam was challenged by Selectman’s Chair Jon Pike who said he didn’t want two boats and that “nobody does any maintenance and then we cry wolf.” He said the boat in question “wasn’t big enough even in its day” and the

department should look to a full-sized pontoon as opposed to a half-pontoon. “I would rather have the right boat once than the wrong boat twice,” he said, telling Parenti to patch up the existing boat as best as he could and return to selectmen with the specifications for the right boat that could carry real-sized people. “The problem is I don’t have the money,” replied Parenti and also reminding Pike the boat has to be small enough to get under the Mosquito Bridge even in very high water. Selectman Ron Cormier agreed with Pike about only having one boat but was less critical of the inferred maintenance problems. “It’s a two-stroke motor and wooden boat. It’s 40-years old and it gets wet,” Cormier said. “Spec what you need and come back.” Parenti said records showed the boat was deployed eight times last year and 15 times over that past few years.

CATHOLICS from page 2 mandate to improve health care for women. Last year, an advisory panel from the Institute of Medicine, which advises the federal government, recommended including birth control on the list of covered services, partly because it promotes maternal and child health by allowing women to space their pregnancies. However, many leaders across faith traditions and political ideology

argued that the mandate’s exception for religious groups was too narrow. The original rule generally allowed churches and other houses of worship to opt out, but kept the requirement in place for religiously affiliated nonprofits, including hospitals, colleges and charities. The political furor caught the administration by surprise. In response, Obama offered to soften the rule so that insurers would pay for birth con-

trol instead of religious groups. However, the bishops and others have said that the accommodation, which is still under discussion, doesn’t go far enough to protect religious freedom. An Obama administration official said the rule was still under discussion with religious leaders. The lawsuits are the latest in the intensifying standoff between Roman Catholic bishops and the Obama administration during this election year.

The bishops plan a national campaign for religious freedom in the two weeks leading up to the July Fourth holiday. Last week, Washington Cardinal Donald Wuerl lambasted Georgetown University, a Jesuit school, for inviting Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to make a graduation speech. Sebelius, who defended religious freedom in her talk, was named as a defendant in see next page

from preceding page the lawsuits Monday, along with her agency and others. The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, a public interest law firm, had previously filed four other federal lawsuits challenging the mandate on behalf of religious schools and others. Still, observers had been closely watching for Notre Dame’s next step. The university, dubbed the Catholic Harvard, in the past indicated willingness to work with Obama, despite his support for abortion rights. Notre Dame came under unprecedented criticism from U.S. bishops and others in 2009 for inviting Obama as commencement speaker and presenting him with an honorary law degree.

In February, when Obama responded to the complaints of religious leaders about the mandate, Jenkins said in a statement that, “we applaud the willingness of the administration to work with religious organizations to find a solution acceptable to all parties.” On Monday, Jenkins said, “although I do not question the good intentions and sincerity of all involved in these discussions, progress has not been encouraging.” The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is not a plaintiff in the lawsuits. Pittsburgh Bishop David Zubik, whose diocese is among those suing the government, said the law firm Jones Day was handling the lawsuits pro bono nationally.

SANBORNTON — After alarms rang out in April about possible shortages in the Public Works budget, town officials said yesterday that despite the projected overages, they’re still not not sure if they will overrun the appropriated total operating budget. The town’s fiscal year ends on June 30. Town Administrator Bob Velsoki said town administrators and selectmen are reviewing other department’s budgets week-by-week and line-byline and have identified money that can be “implicitly transferred” to cover the overruns in Public Works. “We’re still trying to figure out if we’ll be over or under our (total) operating budget,” Veloski said. The 2011-2012 operating budget is $3.6-million — about the same as was approved for 2012-2013 at this month’s annual Town Meeting. Veloski said the town added $100,000 to the capital road budget and $50,000 to the capital bridge budget for next year as well as $25,000 for a complete property revaluation. Veloski said one of the worst mud season in recent history — triggered in part by a week of 80 degree temperatures in March — will likely cause the DPW to overspend its allotted 2012 budget by about $150,000. He explained that an “implicit transfer” allows the financial administration to

better track the specific areas where there is over-spending and underspending for fixes in future budgets. “Towns do it all the time,” he said. According to Veloski, there appears to be some projected overages in the transfer station and Fire Department budgets and Police Chief Stephen Hankard informed the board recently that he can delay the purchase of new bullet proof vests for his officers until next the fiscal year that begins July 1, saving about $1,500 from this year’s operating budget. As for the town’s unexpended fund balance, Veloski said it is somewhere around $518,000 — the audit is not finalized — or near the level recommend by the Department of Revenue Administration. He said once this fiscal year ends and the audit is complete, the selectmen should have an idea of how much, if any, of the unexpended fund balance can be used to lower or maintain the property tax rate that will get set in November. He said last year the town used $83,000 to offset the tax impact. He said one of the things that could drive up the town’s tax rate is a change in the funding formula for the Winnisquam Regional School District will mean Sanbornton taxpayers will be paying more. Largely beyond the control of the town’s government, Veloski said town’s people should be aware of the change.

GILFORD from page one residents or the town portion of the municipal tax rate, whichever is less. In 2011, Wesley Woods paid $73,119 in property taxes. Wesley Woods is located just off Gilford Ave. (Rte 11-A) and maintains a community function room in the nearby First United Methodist Church. After deferring a decision several times, on May 9 the board denied the request by a vote of two-to-one, with Kevin Hayes and John O’Brien in the majority and Gus Benavides dissenting. There was no discussion of the issue before the vote was taken. Afterwards, when an attorney representing NEDA asked for an explanation, Hayes curtly said, “no” and the other two selectmen remained silent. Dunn said yesterday that no issue has taxed the board more severely during his tenure. In his letter Dunn acknowledged that the NEDA is a legitimate non-profit corporation, but added that the selectmen were not convinced that the housing it provides represents a charitable use of the property. Attorney Rod Dyer, representing the NEDA, contended that because the debt service on the units of $300,000 exceeds the rental income from the units of $182,000, a subsidy from the NEDA provides housing at below market rents. “If it were not for the continuing contribution provided by the NEDA, there is no possibility that the community would remain in operation.” Furthermore, he noted that eight of the units are occupied by retired pastors, whose housing costs are supported by the Preachers Aid Society, which pays the NEDA $550 a month for three units, $676 for four units and $700 for one unit, based on the financial circumstances of the tenants. Dunn conceded that data presented by Russ

Thibeault of Applied Economic indicated rents at Wesley Woods were less than market rents in Gilford, but noted that the calculation assumed that between 90-percent and 100-percent of the entrance fee required to secure a unit would ultimately be refunded. Since no fees have been refunded, the board found that they should not be discounted but included in the housing costs, making rents at Wesley Woods comparable to market rents. Moreover, even if the entrance fees are refunded on the death or departure of the tenant, Dunn held that the financial arrangement failed to demonstrate a charitable purpose. Instead, since the fees paid no interest to the tenant, he suggested that they represented interest free loans to the benefit of the NEDA. And as entrance fees are required of all subsequent tenants, Dunn presumed that the NEDA will enjoy a “a perpetually revolving supply supply of interest free loans.” Finally, Dunn pointed out that the Preachers Aid Society reimburses the NEDA for the cost of housing the eight pastors at rates comparable to those of the other tenants at Wesley Woods. “There is no evidence,” he wrote, “that the NEDA is providing any charitable housing for these individuals.” In addition, the Preachers Aid Society paid the NEDA $185,000 to reserve each of the eight units, which was used to construct them. Although the NEDA may have to refund the money, it received an interest free loan to finance a share of the development in return for reserving the units. Dyer did not attend the meeting on May 9 and is currently on vacation. In his absence, Attorney Allison Ambrose said that any decision to appeal the board’s decision will be made after Dyer returns.

Volunteers needed to serve on Wyatt Park Neighborhood Coalition

LACONIA — Wyatt Park Neighborhood Coalition is the name chosen to administer the HEAL Community Grant, Parks and Recreation officials have announced. The grant was explained briefly at the recent community forum on Wyatt Park renovation and improvement plans. A smaller steering committee group will be responsible for planning and implementing all actions with regard to park improvement. The steering committee and its advisory board met last week and decided on a plan of action. There will be a group looking for volunteers to join the Coalition. They will be explaining in more detail what will be involved and what actions will be taken. There will then be another community forum which is required by the grant and at this meeting they will be doing some asset mapping of the neighborhood. There will be many new actions that will come from this committee and the advisory board will be there for any help that is necessary. People interested in becoming part of the Wyatt Park Neighborhood Coalition are asked to call Laconia Parks & Recreation at 524-5046.

NATO from page one In essence, the partners, led by Obama, are staying the course, sticking with a timeline long established and underscoring that there will be no second-guessing the decision to leave. Since 2010, they have been planning to finish the war at the end of 2014, even as moves by nations such as France to pull combat troops out early has tested the strength of the coalition. The shift to have Afghan forces take the lead of the combat mission next year has also been expected. Leaders presented it as a significant turning point in the war. It will be “the moment when throughout Afghanistan people can look out and see their own troops and police stepping up to the challenge,” said the NATO chief, Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen. What the world is poised to leave behind is an Afghanistan still riddled with poverty, corruption and political instability. Yet, out of money and patience, the U.S.-led partnership said it is confident Afghanistan will be stable and prepared enough to at least be able to protect itself — Spring is a time to get things tidied up, including debt.

Alton’s Boyster eyeing run for State Senate in District 6 By Michael Kitch ROCHESTER — Three candidates representing two factions of the Republican Party appear set to vie for the GOP nomination to the New Hampshire Senate seat in District 6, left open by the decision of Fenton Groen of Rochester to retire after serving just one term. District 6 consists of Alton, Barnstead and Gilmanton in Belknap County and the city of Rochester and towns of Farmington and New Durham in Strafford County. After serving two terms in the House, Peter Bolster of Alton, is a retired pastor eying the race. One of a dwindling number of centrist or moderate Republicans often reviled by his conservative colleagues as a RINO — “Republican in Name Only” — Bolster has cast votes against right-to-work, repealing gay marriage, loosening gun laws, withholding public funds from Planned Parenthood, and allowing employers to deny coverage for contraception. Bolster said that “I think I could be more effective in the Senate. It’s a smaller body that makes a greater effort to reach consensus.” He acknowledged that that with only 24 members the demands on the

time and energy of individual senators “give me a little pause.” The other two candidates, Representatives Sam Cataldo of Farmington and Susan DeLemus of Rochester, are both staunch conservative Republicans, committed to shrinking the size and reach of state government. Cataldo, a computer consultant, served in the House from 2002 to 2006 and, after a failed bid for a Senate in 2008, was re-elected in 2010. He serves on the Science, Technology and Energy Committee. Serving her first term in the House, DeLemus sits on the Election Law Committee as well as the House Special Committee on Education Funding. Prominent in the Tea Party, she was among those who berated the Ballot Law Commission for refusing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the birth of President Obama. Both Cataldo and DeLemus have consistently supported legislation to restrict abortion rights and relax gun rights, repeal gay marriage, enact a rightto-work law, deny public funds to Planned Parenthood and entitle employers to withhold coverage for contraception. But, they differ over the expansion of gambling, with Cataldo favoring and DeLemus opposed to the construction of four casinos.

from preceding page “making a decisive and enduring commitment to the long-term future of Afghanistan. The message to the Afghan people is that we will not desert them. And the message to the insurgency is equally clear: You cannot win on the battlefield. You should stop fighting and start talking.” The political stakes are high for the U.S. president, who will go before voters in November with tens of thousands more troops in Afghanistan than when we took office. His emphasis will remain that he is methodically winding down the war, after closing out the one in Iraq; U.S. voters desperate for better economic times have long stopped approving of the war mission. Wary of creating a vacuum in a volatile region, the nations promised a lasting partnership with Afghani-

stan, meaning money, people and political capital. The United States has already cut its own deal with Afghanistan in support of that goal, including a provision that allows U.S. military trainers and special forces to remain in Afghanistan even after the war ends. NATO said it will keep providing “long-term political and practical support” to Afghanistan after 2014, but added: “This will not be a combat mission.” The war dominated the summit, with the uneasy presence and ongoing tension with Pakistan eroding some of the choreographed unity. Obama had no official talks with Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari, although the two chatted briefly along with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Deep conflicts remained over Pakistan’s closure of key transit routes that NATO needs to support troops in Afghanistan — and to get those troops out.

COLD SORES — A HOT TOPIC Mouth sores can be painful, unsightly and annoying. Most mouth sores are caused by infections (bacterial, viral or fungal) or trauma. Canker sores and cold sores are the most common and can be distinguished by definite differences. Canker sores are small ulcers with a white or gray base and a red border that occur inside the mouth and usually take a week or two to heal. They are not contagious. Cold sores are blisters that occur outside the mouth (mostly around the edge of the lips) and they heal on their own in about one week. They are contagious. Once you have the virus associated with cold sores (Herpes type 1), you will always have it, although it may remain dormant for years. Thrush is a fungal infection and occurs when a specific type (Candida albicans) of yeast reproduces in large numbers. This type of yeast infection is common among denture wearers. Smokers are prone to leukoplakia – a thick white colored patch that forms on the inside of the cheeks, gums or tongue. This is caused by excess cell growth and it can develop into cancer, so a biopsy may be indicated. Oral cancer strikes an estimated 34,000 Americans each year, and over 7,000 die each year. During an oral exam, your dentist thoroughly examines the inside of your mouth and tongue to determine if that spot, bump, or sore is harmless or not. Early detection of oral cancer could be a life-saver – have you been checked out lately? George T. Felt, DDS, MAGD 9 Northview Drive 279-6959

HOLY from page one Fortier, who had been baptized Catholic but raised as a Methodist, began to see the Catholic Church in a new way, revealed through the work of its believers. “The sisters of the Immaculate Word and Blessed Sacrament were a huge inspiration to me to renew my commitment to the Catholic Church,” Fortier said. “I’ve always had a strong calling to be of service, primarily educationally. At that point in my life I was looking for opportunities to do that,” he said. While at St. Leo’s School in San Antonio, Fortier found himself surrounded by and working alongside Catholics. “Being in that community, that environment, really sparked that flame of my Catholic faith and wanting to be part of the Catholic Church.” Also while St. Leo’s, Fortier met Brenda, a fellow volunteer. They married in 1981. The Fortiers have six children, all passed through Holy Trinity’s grades and the youngest of the bunch is now a freshman at Laconia High School. In 1987, after having served as administrator of St.

Leo’s for a few years, Fortier and Brenda decided to relocate to New Hampshire and he found a position open in Laconia. He’s been at Holy Trinity ever since. When he started, Fortier said the school had about 140 students. That number has changed a lot over the years — it has crested 200 a couple of years — and is now at about 110. Of those students, a little less than half live in Laconia and one in four comes from a non-Catholic home. While the low enrollment can cause a challenge when it comes to financial aspects of the school, Fortier said it brings an advantage in the classroom. “Educationally, it has allowed us the opportunity to do a lot of things with small classes, individualized learning, strong parent connections.” In fact, when answering surveys about why they choose to send their child to Holy Trinity, Fortier said academic expectations and a safe and secure environment typically are given greater weight than the school’s religious affiliation. see next page

193 students receive associate degrees from LRCC GILFORD — The 43rd Annual Commencement Ceremony was held for Lakes Region Community College (LRCC) in Laconia graduates on Saturday at Meadowbrook Musical Arts Center. One hundred ninety-three students graduated in twenty-two academic programs with 202 degrees. Presiding over his first LRCC Commencement ceremony was new President Dr. Scott Kalicki, who served as vice president of Student Affairs at Southern New Hampshire University prior to taking the top position at LRCC. The Student of the Year Award was presented to Nursing student Rhonda Gagnon of Center Barnstead, president of LRCC’s Student Senate. Gagnon served as Student Senate vice president last year.

The Student of the Year Award is based on a vote of the faculty and staff. Liberal Arts student, Ian Bissonnette of Laconia was the class Valedictorian. He earned a perfect 4.0 grade point average in his studies at LRCC. The Chancellor’s Award of Teaching Excellence went to Nursing Professor Debbie Brady of Gilford. The Chancellor’s Award for Service Excellence was given to Carl Dodge of Laconia. Instructor of the Year was LRCC English Professor Arthur Deleault of Manchester, voted on by the students. Deleault has been voted Instructor of the Year more times than any other faculty member at the college.

NIAGARA FALLS from page 2 that the man was critically injured but was expected to survive. Authorities did not release the man’s name. Horseshoe Falls, on the Canadian side of the river, is the tallest of the three main falls, higher than the American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls. The man, believed to be in his 30s or 40s, was rescued about two hours later after fire department rescuers rappelled down the steep and rocky gorge and pulled him in a basket back up the cliff. “It was very difficult. Between the shale and the boulders, and everything is wet and slick. It’s slimy,” Orescanin said. About seven rescuers struggled to carry the basket up to a point where it could be lifted with ropes suspended from an aerial truck. “We had to basically hand carry him back up, a foot at a time, up the rope,” the chief said. The rescue came weeks before daredevil Nik Wallenda plans to walk over Niagara Falls on a tight-

rope after convincing United States and Canadian officials to grant an exception to laws prohibiting stunting. Although several daredevils have survived trips over the falls in barrels or other contraptions, beginning with Annie Edison Taylor in 1901, few have survived unprotected. In 1960, 7-year-old Roger Woodward was swept over the falls wearing a life jacket and survived. Authorities don’t believe Monday’s plunge, on a warm and sunny Victoria Day holiday in Canada, was a stunt. “Based on witness statements and surveillance video, it doesn’t appear in any way, shape, or form that this was anything other than a suicide attempt,” Niagara Parks Police Sgt. Chris Gallagher told WIVB in Buffalo. More than 6 million cubic feet of water go over the brink of the falls every minute during peak daytime tourist hours, according to the Niagara Parks Commission.

from preceding page The school’s unique traits have also been a boon when it comes to attracting and retaining staff. “We’ve been fortunate that the positions of teaching here at Holy Trinity... have attracted folks to teaching here, even though the financial compensation is less than what they might receive in the public sector,” Fortier said. Several teachers have taught for more than a decade at the school, while third grade teacher Judy Gessner will celebrate her 25th next school year. “It’s been a blessing to be here for 25 years. I’ve

had an opportunity to work with some very talented teachers, I have a tremendous staff, it’s been a joy to work with families and children who’ve attended Holy Trinity.” Though many administrators might feel satisfied after a quarter-century, Fortier said the reception on Wednesday shouldn’t be confused with a going-away party. “I still enjoy what I’m doing, I don’t see retirement in the near future. Holy Trinity is a great place for students to go to school, I’ve been fortuante and proud to be the principal of this fine school.”

Holderness angler lands 5.42-lb. salmon to take 30th Winni Derby BY ROGER AMSDEN FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — When Shane Nassar hooked what proved to be the winning landlocked salmon in the 30th annual Winni Derby early Sunday morning he wasn’t impressed. “It broke the water twice and I thought it was small. But it swam right to the boat after that and when I saw it up close,I knew it was pretty big, big enough to win’’ said Nassar, who landed the the 5.42 pound, 24.875 inch long female salmon near Sandy Island around 7:30 a.m. Sunday. ‘’I hadn’t gone to the awards ceremonies on Friday or Saturday so I didn’t know how big the leading fish was until I got to the dock. And then I had to worry that someone might bring in a bigger one,’’ said Nassar. He brought it to the Weirs Beach weigh-in station shortly after nine o’clock , where he found out from Fish and Game Department biologists that it was one of the few remaining 7-year-old salmons in the lake. And he then had to wait nearly three excruciating hours before knowing that his fish had won. “It was crazy. Every time I saw someone come in with a big fish I was praying that it was a lake trout and not a salmon,’’ said Nassar, 26, a carpenter who won $12,500 for his big fish. He said that he was fishing in a boat with Aaron Diamond and Jay Leader and used a DB Smelt lure to land the prize. ‘’It was something to be able to catch anything at all Sunday. Friday everyone was catching a fish but Saturday with all that bright sunlight was really slow and Sunday it was dead,’’ said Nassar, It was the only bite that he had all weekend in what was his third Winni Derby. He said that the fish was on ice and was going to be mounted as a permanent reminder of his big day on the lake as well as something for his family to admire. ‘’My grandfather’s a fishing guide on Squam Lake, so it’s nice to have this.’’ said Nassar, who is planning fishing trips to Martha’s Vineyard and perhaps to Alaska with his winnings. The other top fish in the salmon category were also landed Sunday with Denis Alix of New Ipswich landing a 4.52 pounder and Dana Pearl of Belmont bringing in a 3.84 pounder. The leader going into Sunday was Gloria Zela of Hooksett with a 3.80pound fish followed by Beau Chase of Sanbornton with a 3.76-pound fish.

Others from the area with good catches were Ryan Bonner (3.72 pounds) of Alton, Ron Lien (3.60 pounds) of Gilford and Aaron Diamond (3.50 pounds) of Thornton, who was in the same boat as the derby winner. Sam Zdon, 11, of Hillsboro, won the Junior Salmon Division grand prize with his 4.26-pounds. 23.625inch catch landed on Friday. He won a 2011 14-foot Alumacraft fishing boat with a trailer. Hayden Parent of Northfield finished second at 3.68 pounds and Brandon Pearl of Belmont was eighth with his 3.04 pound catch. Winner of $5,000 in the Lake Trout division was Jeremy Bryer of Bar Harbor, Maine with a 9.18pounds, 30 inch-monster. Paul Anticil (6.38 pounds) of Merrimack and Brady Belibac, only eight years old, (5.34 pounds), also of Merrimack, had the other two top catches. (There is no separate junior award in the lake trout category.)

The first annual Rick Davis Sportsman’s Award was presented during Sunday’s closing awards ceremony at the Laconia Ice Arena, and went to Rich Dumont, Jr., of Goffstown who landed a 2.82-pound salmon, which was the average weight of all salmon landed during the Derby. Glenn Davis, son of the derby founder who passed away last year after a 19-year battle with cancer, said that the award was to be presented to a fishermen who had landed an average fish and who was a true sportsman, like his dad was. He said that his father had run the derby for 30 years with the goal of improving and preserving the Lake Winnipesaukee fishery for all anglers. “It’s all about you, all about the lake and all about fishing,’’ said Davis, who said that he hoped the derby would continue to enjoy success. He recalled that when his father first started the see next page

PSU grants 1,400 degrees at joint undergraduate & graduate ceremony

PLYMOUTH — The 141st Plymouth State University commencement ceremony made history Saturday as the institution held its first unified graduation in decades by joining its undergraduate and graduate ceremonies, granting 1,400 degrees on the same day. PSU President Sara Jayne Steen welcomed the guests, stating the event marks a new chapter in Plymouth State’s history. “Both uniting the undergraduate and graduate ceremonies and awarding our first doctorates are milestones,” Steen said. Former Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) President Andrew Falender, who received an honorary Doctor of Science degree for his visionary leadership in conservation and education, was the commencement speaker. He focused on the idea of living life with the recognition that “it’s all borrowed time.” “You’ve had a terrific higher education experience,” Falender said. “Make sure every decision leads to a life you will be happy with and proud of in 10 or 20 years.” Class of 2012 President Nate Obin urged his classmates to look forward, and reminded them how their time is precious. “The last four years have gone by fast, kind of like my first trip down

the Pemi,” said Obin. “Today is not the end of the last four years of our lives; it’s the start of a new journey.” John and Cathy Bentwood received the Granite State Award, for their commitment to service reflecting Plymouth State University’s motto, Ut Prosim (That I may serve). The longtime residents of Plymouth have been instrumental in creating and maintaining a free annual cancer screening clinic, a regional free health clinic for the uninsured, and a shelter for people who are homeless. The Granite State Award honors those who have made exceptional contributions to the State of New Hampshire and its citizens. President Steen also noted the passing of Eugene A. Savage, an alumnus ‘58 who had devoted his life to helping and educating young people. She had recently presented him with PSU’s Henry W. Blair Medal for Distinguished Public Service. The 2012 Commencement marked the first graduation for PSU’s Doctor of Education program in Learning, Leadership, and Community. Ten doctorates were awarded. The commencement ceremony was held under sunny skies at Currier Memorial Field in Holderness and was attended by approximately 4,000 family members and guests.

from preceding page derby the lake was way overstocked and trophy size salmon were few and far between. He said that his father worked closely with the Fish and Game Department to help restore a balance to the lake which present day fishermen can now enjoy. The derby is now run by the Laconia

Rotary Club. Club president Diane LaBrie said that this year’s derby enjoyed good weather and attendance was up substantially over last year, when 1,200 took part. She said that final numbers on how many took part will be available later this week.

Annuity Model- Meredith police boat ‘sinking’, will be replaced ing For Retirees or Pre-retirement Historically, retirees could typically count on three resources retirement income that is divided roughly into thirds: With this traditional scenario, both the government and employer-sponsored components of the plan were considered “fixed-guaranteed income sources with adjustments for inflation”. Only one third of the plan, individual savings, was considered variable. This has changed and is now a sign of the times. Today, however, the majority of the burden for retirement income has shifted to the individual, because social security is continually being re-evaluated and benefits are being scaled back. Employer-sponsored plans have evolved from guaranteed pension payouts to more defined contribution plans, which result in a payout in retirement based on the level of participation and long-term market performance. “Guaranteed Income Key Component to Retiring Successfully” You may want to consider a guaranteed fixed income component to “shore” up your overall retirement plan. In short, adding an annuity to your retirement portfolio may be an opportunity to help ensure a portion of your retirement income will be guaranteed. An annuity is a contract you purchase from and insurance company. For the premium you pay, you receive certain fixed and/or variable growth options able to compound tax deferred or until withdrawn. Deferred annuities have been popular with IRA accounts because many consumers enjoy the principle and growth that are contractually guaranteed. Additionally, there are several options available to the purchaser when ready to take various income streams. There are withdrawal options where you can take 10% of either the depository value or accumulation value. Another provision in the annuity contract allowing you to take out a set amount of monies either for a set period or a set period with life is called annuitization and this option can give the owner of the annuity contract “income for life”. Remember, if you are withdrawing monies from your annuity you should be mindful that this is reducing the face amount and this could be problematic if you are in need of additional monies, especially later if you need to annuitize for income in later years. (Discuss this with your advisor; he can pilot you through this process) My clients always get a call when their statements come out so we can review and plan accordingly for the future. Annuities are designed for income planning and are predictable, however, that being said, they are used for long-term growth and income distribution. If you withdraw income or IRA monies that have a zero cost basis and that money is “tax qualified”, you will be subject to a ten percent penalty plus taxes at whatever marginal tax bracket you’re in. There are certain exceptions like utilizing section 72t at age 55, but I suggest you speak with your financial advisor or tax professional.

MEREDITH — The Board of Selectmen yesterday accepted the recommendation of Town Manager Phil Warren to replace the boat used by the Police Department to patrol island properties. Warren explained that the Boston Whaler, which has been leaking for some time, is no longer serviceable because the foam within its fiberglass hull has become waterlogged. “It has been leaking, but now it’s sinking,” Warren said. After finding that federal funds are not available to fund emergency watercraft on inland waters,

Warren approached the marinas and found a suitable 25-foot boat at Y Landing, which can be fitted with the motor and controls from Boston Whaler. The boat, he said, would cost $5,000 plus $1,000 to switch the motor and controls and another $1,000 to equip for the use of the police. He said that the $7,000 could be withdrawn from a fund for police equipment with a current balance of $13,000. “Considering we have a submarine,” Selectman Nate Torr remarked, “this seems the best solution.” — Michael Kitch

Selectmen will consider creating ‘emergency lane’ connecting Meredith Neck Rd. & Stonedam Island Rd. MEREDITH — Following discussion in a workshop yesterday, the Board of Selectmen will schedule a public hearing to consider designating the class VI road between Meredith Neck Road and Stonedam Island Road an “emergency lane.” Mike Faller, director of Public Works, proposed the measure as a means of ensuring access in the event Meredith Neck Road, which last year nearly washed out when a beaver dam was breached, were closed to through traffic. He explained that without the designation, the class VI road cannot be improved without entitling residents to petition the town to take over the road.

Faller explained that a very steep slope at the junction where the class VI road joins Meredith Neck Road cannot be negotiated by emergency vehicles. He suggested that material reclaimed from ditching could be used to raise and regrade the roadway, estimating the cost of the project at $1,000. Selectmen Peter Brothers was concerned that if the road was improved, motorists would be tempted to use it and wondered if it could be gated or barred. Faller replied that such improvements, apart from hindering emergency access and requiring regular monitoring, could lead to a change in the status of the road. — Michael Kitch

Blackhawk helicopter expected to land near LRGH today LACONIA — Although residents of “Hospital Hill” are accustomed to the comings and goings of helicopters, they may be surprised this morning when, as part of an exercise conducted by the New

Hampshire Air National Guard and LRGHealthcare a large Blackhawk helicopter touches down in the hospital’s employee parking lot on Highland Street at approximately 10 a.m.

WEBCAM from page 2 calling it insufficient. The tear-filled sentencing touched on many of the issues that made the case heart-wrenching and legally complicated: anti-gay bullying, teen suicide, hate-crime laws in the fast-changing Internet age, and the uses and abuses of technology in the hands of young people. Ravi did not speak in court but shed tears as his mother pleaded with the judge not to send him to prison. Afterward, Ravi, his family and his lawyers left court without comment. He is expected to appeal his conviction. In handing down the sentence, the judge quoted

an email from Clementi himself describing Ravi’s conduct as “wildly inappropriate.” At the same time, Berman pointed out that Ravi was not charged in Clementi’s suicide. He said Ravi has spent 20 months in “exile” since his arrest. And he suggested “hate crime” is a misnomer for what Ravi was convicted of: “I do not believe he hated Tyler Clementi.” He also said he has examined the bias intimidation laws in 39 states and found that New Jersey’s is among the broadest. Most, he said, are used only to increase the sentences of people convicted of violent crimes. The judge said he would recommend Ravi not be see next page

Bass erupts for Celtics & 3-2 series lead results BOSTON (AP) — They started as a Big Three and grew to a Big Four when Rajon Rondo earned the right to be mentioned along with the other Boston Celtics All-Stars. At no point, however, did Brandon Bass merit marquee billing in his first season in Boston. The fifth, newest and least-heralded member of the Celtics’ starting lineup, Bass erupted for a career playoff-high 27 points on Monday night, scoring 18 in the third quarter as Boston pulled away from the Philadelphia 76ers to win 101-85 and take a 3-2 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals. “We’ve got a few good players on the team that they had to focus on,” said Bass, who left the game to a standing ovation with 2 minutes left and Boston leading by 18. “That left me open, and I was able to take advantage of my opportunity.” The 27 points matched Bass’ regular-season career high, and the 18 points in the third was one off his career playoff high for an entire game. It was also more than the Sixers scored in the quarter as a team. “It was one of those games we needed something to ignite us together,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. “I thought the biggest difference was his energy. He

played with a force. I thought he just let himself go.” Kevin Garnett added 20 points and Rajon Rondo had 13 points and 14 assists for the Celtics, who can advance to the East finals with a victory in Philadelphia in Game 6 on Wednesday. The Sixers would need a win at home to force the series back to Boston for a decisive seventh game. As he walked to his postgame interview, Elton Brand told the Celtics’ ball boys in the hallway outside the locker rooms: “See you on Saturday.” No team has won consecutive games yet this series. “It would just be nice to win two in a row. That would be terrific,” Rivers said. “It’s not going to be easy. This series has been hard. Every minute, you think we’re leaking oil physically.” Brand scored 19 and Evan Turner had 11 points and 10 rebounds for Philadelphia, which led by six points early in the third quarter before Boston scored 14 of the next 16 points. Bass had eight of them, including back-to-back dunks followed by a steal that set up Ray Allen’s fast-break layup to give the Celtics a 63-57 lead with five minutes left in the quarter.

BALTIMORE (AP) — Down by three runs in the sixth inning, the Boston Red Sox desperately needed a spark to get back into the game against the Baltimore Orioles. With one mighty swing, David Ortiz launched a ball out of Camden Yards and sent the Red Sox on their way to an uplifting 8-6 victory Monday night. Dustin Pedroia had two RBIs and Mike Aviles scored the go-ahead run in the seventh to help Boston secure its ninth win in 11 games. The Red Sox are tied with the New York Yankees in the AL East cellar but are at .500 (21-21) for the first time since April 30. “It’s definitely not a goal, but it’s better than being under .500,” manager Bobby Valentine said. Boston trailed 5-2 in the sixth before Ortiz hit a drive that was so obviously gone that right fielder Nick Markakis didn’t even turn around to see it become the 62nd homer in the 21-year history of Camden Yards to land on Eutaw Street. It was his 10th homer of the season, second in three games, and the timing could not have been better.

“We start the rally afterward,” Ortiz said. “Somebody got to start it, right?” Adrian Gonzalez followed with a double and Daniel Nada hit a sacrifice fly before starter Tommy Hunter balked in a run to tie it, and the Red Sox were on their way. “We hit a couple of balls good early, but nothing like that,” Pedroia said. “That definitely jump-starts your offense and makes you feel like we can get to them.” Hunter lamented the balk, but acknowledged that Ortiz had the most telling hit. “The last inning was very frustrating,” he said. “I left the ball up to Ortiz. He pimped the (stuffing) out of the ball.” Chris Davis homered for the first-place Orioles, who swept a three-game series in Fenway Park earlier this month. It was the first meeting between the teams in Baltimore since the Orioles ruined Boston’s chances of reaching the playoffs with a walkoff win on the final day of the 2011 regular season.

from preceding page deported to his native India. Deportation is still a possibility, but a sentence of a year or more would have been more likely to trigger it. Prosecutors had asked that Ravi be sent to prison; they did not say how much time he should get other than that it did not have to be the maximum. If pros-

ecutors appeal the sentence, Ravi may not have to report to jail on May 31 as ordered. New Jersey gay rights organization Garden State Equality expressed disappointment with the punishment. In a statement, chairman Steven Goldstein suggested that while the maximum would have been an act of “vengeance,” 30 days was too light.

Franklin to honor fallen soldier Eugene Harriman on Memorial Day FRANKLIN — The city of Franklin is honoring Staff Sergeant Eugene H. Harriman, who died in the Vietnam War, by inscribing his name on the Franklin War Memorial Monument opposite the high school on Memorial Day, May 28. The dedication will be part of the Memorial Day parade that begins at 2 p.m. and the public is invited. SSG Harriman’s name was unintentionally omitted years ago when the Monument was erected. A Vietnam veteran, while researching another fallen veteran, came across the omission and notified the city of Franklin and local VFW Post 1698, both of which enthusiastically supported placing his name on the monument. After extensive research, Father Roger Sargent

then made contact and met with Attorney Guy L. Harriman, Jr., SSG Harriman’s brother, in Littleton to obtain family authorization to place his brother’s name on the Franklin monument. They then visited SSG Harriman’s grave in Franconia and viewed his name on the Town of Lisbon War Memorial.

Laconia Historical & Museum Society in search of eldest Laconia resident

LACONIA — The Laconia Historical & Museum Society’s new Director, Brenda M. Polidoro recently re-discovered a donation made by Ann Dearborn Kaligian. in April of 2007. This donation is what is referred to as the Centennial Cane. The cane was originally presented to Ms. Madeline Whelan by Ann and Robert Dearborn in July of 1993 as part of the City’s Centennial Celebration. Ms. Wheland was at the time the eldest Laconia resident. Robert Dearborn passed in 1996 and the cane has sat idle, until now. Polidoro said it is the intent of the Laconia Historical and Museum Society to carry on the tradition introduced by the Dearborns in 2007. On an annual basis, the Society’s Centennial Cane Committee will search to identify the eldest member of our community and present the cane to them during the month of July. Although the Centennial Cane will be part of the presentation ceremony, the cane will actually be kept on display at the Laconia Public Library – where the Laconia Historical and Museum Society’s office is located. Annually a recipient will be identified as the eldest in the community, photographed with the cane and presented with a proclamation from the Laconia Historical & Museum Society President. Those eligible to receive the Centennial Cane must be a resident of the City of Laconia and must be able to verify their date of birth. Those who would like to suggest a potential recipient, should call the LHMS office at (603) 527-1278 or email them at www.lhmslpl@ Deadline for submissions is June 15.

Exhibit on The Lee Settlement and Ossipee Mountain Park open at Castle in the Clouds in Moultonborough MOULTONBOROUGH — The Castle in the Clouds, working with the Oliver family of Moultonborough, is giving a special gift to the Town of Moultonborough and to everyone interested in the history of the region--a never before assembled exhibit of the life and times of the Lee Settlement and Ossipee Mountain Park--the precursors of The Castle in the Clouds. The exhibit, at Castle in the Clouds Carriage House, is open now on weekends, and will be open daily from June 9 through June 27. The area known successively as the Ossipee Mountain Intervale, Ossipee Mountain Park, Lucknow Estate, and now Castle in the Clouds, was first permanently settled by the Lees, and five other families, in the late 1700s. Now, several generations later, the Oliver family, descendants of the Lees, continues to treasure many of the artifacts remaining from those years, including farm tools, furniture, toys and clothes, letters and fine quality photographs. These make up the core of this most wonderful and evocative exhibit. But this is much more than an exhibit of historical memorabilia. It tells the story of one extended family’s struggle, to live a harsh life in a beautiful mountain valley, and to continue to stay there even when strong forces tried to drive them out. There is Martha Jane Lee’s spinning wheel, photos of young Lizzie Lee milking a cow, a photo of the wicked “spite fence” Tom Plant put up to force the Lees to sell, and nearby a letter from a distant relative commiserating with Martha Jane’s troubles. The curators of the exhibit, Ann Hackl and Nancy Gaver, have carefully used photographs, artifacts and some text to tell the story of these hard working pioneers and of the wealthy industrialists who

The exhibit is free with Castle in the Clouds admission and open during regular Castle hours.

Laconia Historical and Museum Society Presents “When Disaster Strikes: Stories of the Most Disastrous Events in Laconia’s History” Exhibit May - August In 1846, when Laconia was still known as Meredith Bridge, a fire destroyed nearly all of the buildings in town. Displaying resilience, the townspeople rebuilt. Just fourteen years later, another fire devastated the town again. This time, not only did the townspeople rebuild for the future, but also, they established a fire department to protect it. Since the mid-19th century, disaster has struck Laconia many times, often in the form of fire, sometimes with extreme weather, other times as pure happenstance. Regardless of the form of disaster, Laconia has persevered. When Disaster Strikes retells and illustrates the city’s most disastrous events to honor those who suffered through them and communicate how Laconia was shaped by them.

“Overboard! A True Bluewater Odyssey of a NH Man’s Survival” Wednesday, June 6th @ 7:00 Laconia Rotary Hall In May of 2005 Captain Tom Tighe and first mate Loch Reidy of the sailboat Almeisan welcomed three new crewmembers for a five day voyage from Connecticut to Bermuda. One of the new members was Ron Burd of NH. Four days into their voyage a massive storm struck and Captain Tighe and Reidy were swept from the boat and carried away by huge seas. The three new crew members somehow remained on the vessel as it was torn apart. Michael J. Tougias, an award winning author, brings this story to life, following the desperate struggles of both the crew on the boat and the Captain and first mate in the sea. This program is graciously sponsored by the New Hampshire Humanities Council and the Laconia Public Library.

This exhibit is presented by the Laconia Historical and Museum Society with generous support from the Laconia Public Library and a special thanks to the Lakeport Association, the Laconia Fire Department, Russ Hobby, and Bob Fortier. Exhibit on display through August.

Executive Director Gonzalo was thrilled to announce to her staff and the Board of Directors that the agency had received the highest grade possible. No deficiencies were noted by the visiting team of surveyors. In addition, VNMCH received commendation for exceeding expectations in several areas such as in patient admissions procedures, home safety evaluations, and in the implementation of proactive health care measures in the home. The intensive evaluation included agency operations, quality of care, staff qualifications, facilities, record keeping, adherence to all state and federal mandates and patient outcomes. The surveyors reviewed patient charts checking for

accuracy and completeness. They accompanied nurses and therapists on home health care visits to verify the quality of patient care and the outcomes achieved. They reviewed staff files to verify compliance with license and certification requirements including evidence of ongoing professional development. Finally, a complete inspection of our facility, our storage of medical supplies and vaccines and our procedures for the disposal of all medical waste was undertaken. In Gonzalo’s report to the Board of Directors she said: “In all instances, we met or exceeded acceptable standards”. The Board unanimously commended her for her outstanding work and that of every member of her staff.

Hannaford Supermarkets program helps more than 500 schools in NH

ALTON-MEREDITH — Alton Central School and Inter-Lakes High School in Meredith were among the more than 500 New Hampshire schools to receive funds from Hannaford Supermarkets 12th annual Hannaford Helps Schools program. Alton Central School received $2,119 and InterLakes High School $2,098. Hannaford customers generated donations for their local school by purchasing participating products between Sept. 4 and Dec. 3, 2011. These customers received “school dollars” and deposited them in collection towers at their local Hannaford. “Hannaford Helps Schools makes it possible for schools to provide something extra, at a time when most districts are facing difficult budget choices,” said Eric Blom, Hannaford spokesman. “Educators can be creative in using the funds provided through Hannaford Helps Schools. They decide for themselves how to use the contribution to best serve their students and their community.’’ In New Hampshire, 507 schools received a total of $153,407 toward the purchase of needed items such as computers, sporting equipment and playground gear. Overall, the program raised $778,876 and contributed to more than 2,600 schools in New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Maine and New York. Hannaford Supermarkets, based in Scarborough, Maine, operates 179 stores in the Northeast. Stores are located in Maine, New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont. All Hannaford stores feature Guiding Stars, America’s first storewide nutrition navigation system and most stores have full-service pharmacies. Hannaford employs more than 26,000 associates.

lar options and pitch them with a smile. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You love enthusiasm, and yet you are also aware of the dangers. High-pitched emotion can cause distortions of reality; the truth gets stretched, and promises are overblown. So you reserve the right to keep your cool. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your creativity is not an exhaustible resource. You’re hooked up to an endless source. Your job is to keep the channels open, clearing out restrictive thoughts and limiting patterns on a regular basis. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A gift will land in your hands. This is not the return of good karma or a reward for hard work. The only reason this blessing comes to you is because it wants to belong to you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The most attractive people in the world are the ones who know themselves. Embracing so-called “faults” turns them into advantages. Maybe the very thing you’ve been trying to hide is your ticket to success. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Unfortunately, good enough won’t be good enough. This is the kind of day when you have to go above and beyond the call -- or don’t bother going at all. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 22). You’ll appreciate the opportunity this year affords. You have stellar ideas, and you’ll love it when you get the chance to try them out. Your friendship circle widens in June. Someone you adore will extend a juicy invitation in July. Seize a sensational job offer in August. You’ll reach a milestone in September and celebrate big. Pisces and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 10, 22, 39 and 18.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Extend an invite, as it will be exceedingly lucky for you to do so now. Convenience will play a big part in whether or not your invite is accepted, so factor the geographic desirability and time of day into your proposal. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You may not be able to smoothly say what’s in your heart, but if you write it out, you’ll come to an interesting conclusion. Three pages is the magic number. At the end of the third page, a clear direction begins to form. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be in a position to give a VIP what he or she is asking for. Unfortunately, close doesn’t count. It has to be exactly right. So check and double check to make sure you’ve covered every detail. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Whatever you take on, be early. Your fortunes will be augmented when you’re the first on the scene, an initial adopter of technology and ideas, or the one who arrives to the meeting before everyone else. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your personal integrity prevents you from pushing anything on others that they do not need, even if this is what your family, boss or company wants you to do. Your honesty may cost you a sale, but it will win you a customer. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your responsibilities have you wound tight. That’s why your favorite people are the ones who can diffuse the tension by making you laugh. Steal relaxation wherever you find it. Everything is going to be absolutely fine. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have fantastic ideas. Don’t be afraid to speak up. Instead of asking others what they’d like to do, putting the responsibility on them, come up with three stel-

Country Throwdown opens Meadowbrook’s 17th summer season

GILFORD — The Meadowbrook U.S. Cellular Pavilion is set to open its 17th season on Saturday, May 26 with its summer kick-off show, Country Throwdown. This rockin’ all-day music experience features two stages and the Blue Bird Cafe singer songwriter tent. The party atmosphere includes unprecedented access to artists for meet and greets, onsite promotions and interactive displays, and one of the wildest tailgating scenes north of the Mason Dixon. Featured are Gary Allan, Justin Moore, Josh Thompson and Sunny Sweeney. Gary Allan’s voice is described as “raspy and unpolished. His sound is heavily influenced by the Outlaw Country greats. “When I was a kid, I didn’t care what you listened to, there was a cool factor to country music because you had Waylon and Kristofferson, and you had Willie and Haggard. Those are real life people.” Allan’s twentyfive singles, all have charted on The Billboard country singles charts, and twelve of these have also crossed over to the Billboard Hot 100. Also joining the party is Justin Moore. Since bursting onto the Country music scene in 2008 with “Back that thing up”, Justin’s songs have been blazing onto the country music charts with a list of steady hits like “Small Town USA”, “Backwoods,”, “How I Got To Be This Way”, “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away” and his most recent “Bait a Hook”. “Beer on the Table” and “Way Out Here” are Josh Thompson’s tributes to the blue-collar lifestyle and influences that are evident throughout his music. “I love the blue collar honky-tonk crowd,” says Thompson. “I have a dirty mouth and I should get my mouth washed out with soap more often. I am blunt and I say what I mean but I also mean what I say. I love the Grand Ole Opry and I am country music history buff”, says Sunny Sweeny. Tickets are on sale now. To charge by phone, call (603) 2934700 or online at www. Tickets are also available at the Alton Traffic Circle Store, Steve’s Stereo in Boscawen, Spun Music in Dover and the Tanger Outlets in Tilton.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, May 22, 2012— Page 29


Dear Annie: My brother and sister and I had an amazing childhood. Our parents stressed the importance of hard work and education. The three of us got advanced degrees, and my sister and I entered the workforce after graduation. Our brother, “Dennis,” however, seems content to live with my parents, working a seasonal minimum-wage job. He was unable to find employment when he graduated and has not bothered to look since. That was seven years ago. My parents do not charge him rent. They cook for him and take him on weekend excursions. They pay a portion of his student loan bills. Dennis doesn’t seem to have any ambition to move forward. It has created a lot of resentment. The last time I saw Dennis, he made a snarky comment when I revealed that I was a month behind in my mortgage payment. I was amazed at his nerve, and it resulted in no contact between us for almost a year. Resentment is also building toward my parents for continuing to allow him to mooch off of them. They are now in their 60s and nearing retirement. They deserve better. And I admit that I’m a bit jealous that Dennis gets handed to him the same things my sister and I have to work so hard for. I will be bringing my fiance to visit my parents for the first time, and we will be staying with them. I’m already dreading it. My fiance says to bite my tongue, that it’s my parents’ decision. But every time I see them, I notice how they have aged. Any suggestions? -- Frustrated in Ft. Worth Dear Frustrated: You need to follow your fiance’s advice and bite your tongue. This is your parents’ choice. The best you can do is be supportive of their needs, perhaps gently pointing out that they are crippling their son by allowing him to be so financially dependent. And perhaps stay somewhere else when you visit. Also consider that Dennis may have un-

diagnosed adult ADD or other psychiatric or medical problems that are interfering with his ambition. We feel sorry for him. When your folks are no longer around to enable him, he will be in serious trouble. Dear Annie: Can I use your column to register a complaint? I’m talking about people in restaurants who use napkins, either cloth or paper, to blow their nose and then put the napkin back on the table or plate. This is so disgusting. It’s not only rude to their fellow diners, but also disrespectful to the people who have to clear the table and pick up the germ-filled napkins. And it’s quite likely that these same servers then bring menus, water or drinks to the next table without washing their hands. Please, people, be considerate. -- No Name, Please, Some of These People Are My Friends Dear No: It is both crass and rude to use any table napkin to blow one’s nose. A small dab (with a tissue or handkerchief) is fine, but major nose blowing should be confined altogether to the restroom. Dear Annie: I agree with your advice to “Dumped Upon,” whose mother-in-law badmouths her ex. My mother often maligned my father to my brother and me after their divorce and even after his death. Her words made me dislike being around her. My sister-in-law told me I must stand up to her. I prayed about this problem. The next time she started in on my father, I said to her: “I am sorry your marriage to your husband was not all you wanted it to be, but I loved my father and found him to be loving and caring. I have fond memories of him. Please never say another bad word about him to my brother or me.” After that, she no longer mentioned him. I am -- Grateful
