Left alone for 5 years, sewer rates in Laconia will now have to rocket up? LACONIA — Sewage was high on the City Council’s agenda this week as Paul Moynihan, director of public works, presented a proposal to increase sewer rates in light of mounting deficits in the sanitary sewer fund and the capital improvement program pursued by the Winnipesaukee River Basin Program (WRBP), which treats sewage on a regional basis. see SEWER page 10

Senate Finance chairman proposes offering state school property to Laconia for $10-million CONCORD — The Senate Finance Committee yesterday considered a proposal to sell the 212 acres on North Main Street that once housed the Laconia State School and Lakes Region (prison) Facility to the city of Laconia for $10-million. There was no immediate word as to where the $10-million price tag came from. At more than $47,000 per acre, the asking price for the land would far exceed any

amount that has been speculated by Laconia residents familiar with the situation. Senator Chuck Morse (R-Salem), chairman of the committee, presented an amendment to the House Bill 2, the so-called companion bill to the budget, directing the Department of Administrative Services to offer the property to the city for not less than $10-million by July 1, 2012. If the city declines the offer, the property would

be offered to Beknap County “at the current market value” and if the county also refuses it would be put on the open market and sold to the highest bidder “at no less than the current market value.” The transaction is to close no later than May 1, 2013 and all proceeds from the sale would be placed in the state general fund.

LACONIA — If you make lemonade when life gives you lemons, what do you do when a career in the shoe business gives you a pile of unwanted shoes? When a group of downtown merchants asked themselves this question, their answer was to create the first ever “Downtown Still Has Sole” show walk. The concept for the event, as described

by Larry Frates of Frates Creative Art Center, was hatched at an informal gathering of downtown business people at LaBelle’s Shoe Repair, where the semiretired Bob LaBelle was lamenting his unwanted collection of forgotten shoes – shoes that were dropped off by clients who never returned, and shoes that manufacturers gave him for display purposes.

Calif. preacher now says world won’t end until Oct. 21

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — As crestfallen followers of a California preacher who foresaw the world’s end strained to find meaning in their lives, Harold Camping revised his apocalyptic prophecy Monday, saying he was off by five months and the Earth actually will be obliterated on Oct. 21. Camping, who predicted that 200 million Christians would be taken to heaven Saturday before global cataclysm struck the planet, said he felt so terrible when his doomsday message did not come true that he left home and took refuge in a motel with his wife. His independent ministry, Family Radio International, spent millions — some of it from donations made by followers — on more than 5,000 billboards and 20 RVs plastered with the Judgment Day message. Follower Jeff Hopkins also spent a good deal of his own retirement savings on gas money to power his car so people would see its ominous see RAPTURE page 7

Violent thunderstorms kill 7 in Oklahoma & Kansas EL RENO, Okla. (AP) — Violent thunderstorms roared across middle America on Tuesday, killing seven people in two states, with several tornadoes touching down in Oklahoma and high winds pounding rural Kansas. The high-powered storms arrived as forecast, just two days after a massive tornado tore through the southwest Missouri town of Joplin and killed 122 people. Several tornadoes struck Oklahoma City and its suburbs during rush hour, killing at least five people and injuring at least 60 others, including three children who were in critical condition, authorities said.

Cherokee Ballard, a spokeswoman for the state medical examiner, said four people died west of Oklahoma City in Canadian County, where a weather-monitoring site in El Reno recorded 151 mph winds. She did not have any immediate details about the deaths. At Chickasha, 25 miles southwest of Oklahoma City, a 26-year-old woman died when a tornado hit a mobile home park where residents had been asked to evacuate their trailers, Assistant Police Chief Elip Moore said. He said a dozen people were injured and that hundreds were displaced when the storm splintered their

homes. In Kansas, police said two people died when high winds threw a tree into their van around 6 p.m. near the small town of St. John, about 100 miles west of Wichita. The highway was shut down because of storm damage. More severe weather occurred after nightfall as the storms continued east, but none with the power of the daytime storms. Their path included Joplin, which is cleaning up from a Sunday storm that was the nation’s eighth-deadliest twister among records dating to 1840.

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire man accused of raping and impregnating a 15-year-old fellow church member in 1997 told his pastor that he had initiated sexual encounters twice with the girl, the pastor said during the man’s trial Tuesday. Chuck Phelps, then-pastor of Concord’s Trinity Baptist Church, testified at the trial of Ernest Willis of Gilford. Tina Anderson, now 29, has testified that

Willis raped her twice that summer, when she was the baby sitter for his children and he was 39. She also said Phelps made her apologize to fellow church members before relocating her to Colorado to live and put her baby up for adoption. Phelps said in court that he didn’t force Anderson to apologize, and that her relocation was never intended to cover up what happened. “There was no part of this in my mind that ever said, this is how we can get

her out of town so Ernie Willis can walk,” Phelps said. Willis, 51, pleaded guilty last week to one count of having sex with Anderson, who was under the legal age of consent at the time. Willis denies having sex with her on more than one occasion and claims the sex was consensual. He is charged with forcible rape, which carries a sentence of up to 20 years in prison. see WILLIS page 12

Playing chicken with ‘full faith & credit’ New polling by Rasmussen shows voters highly conflicted over which party to blame for our economic troubles and which is best able to end them. But Americans agree on one thing: The economy is lousy. And from that, we can reasonably deduce that they don’t want a lousier economy. Given such uncertainty, is now a politically smart time for Republicans to play a honking stupid game of chicken that could plunge a struggling economy into total misery? No, but they can’t resist. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and company have remarkable confidence in their ability to stage manage a fire-twirling act in a gunpowder factory. Not since they shut down the government in 1995-96 have Republicans engaged in such highwire theatrics. (We note that the voters did not reward those efforts in subsequent elections.) Despite pleas from their Wall Street allies, Republicans are threatening to vote against raising the federal debt limit unless Democrats cave on the deep spending cuts they demand. Even if one wants these reductions very badly, one ought not go about getting them by risking the full faith and credit of the United States. A default on U.S. debt could have apocalyptic consequences on global markets. But “Aha!” ringmaster Ryan insists: It’s all under control. We’re not going to permit a real default on American debt. No siree. As the House Budget Committee chairman explains, Republicans are contemplating only a “technical default” on U.S. debt, and that would not shove our economy over the cliff. You see, the government would continue to pay interest on the debt while putting off payment of other bills — for instance, Social Security benefits. Oh, that will go over big. Most Americans may not grasp the economy’s inner workings, but they do understand Social Security payments. And they know in their gut that if something happens to the monthly benefits on which many elderly subsist, something awful is going on in Washington. And this time, they won’t blame

Democrats. Some economists say that pulling off a “technical default” at this point in the calendar would be technically next to impossible. Bruce Bartlett, a Treasury official in the Reagan administration, notes that while the budget managers can shuffle around who gets paid first, the fiscal year ends on Sept. 30, giving them minimal flexibility. Of greater concern, a technical default might not be warmly received even by financiers who fully get the concept. Put bluntly, the world markets could think that American leaders have gone out of their ever-loving mind and pound the “sell” button on the United States. “We think this is no way to operate a highly advanced economy such as the U.S.,” write Morgan Stanley economists David Greenlaw and Ted Wieseman. “And, the risk of investor confusion obviously begins to rise as the U.S. political system appears to become more and more dysfunctional.” Always the practical ones, the Morgan economists offer investors advice on how “to play the looming debt ceiling showdown.” They offer two very different scripts. “Under one plausible scenario,” they write, “there is panicked selling of Treasuries because of general investor confusion.” In another, investors realize that there is virtually no chance of a real default because the Treasury Department has tools to avoid it. The result of the expected Treasury interventions? Yields go lower, and the roof doesn’t cave in. “It really boils down to a highstakes game of chicken,” Greenlaw and Wieseman conclude. You’d think that Ryan and fellow GOP hot-rodders — already so busy trying to dismantle government guarantees on Medicare — would not be inclined to simultaneously dangle the economy over the abyss, but they are. And isn’t it exciting? (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.)

Each spring, Dr. McDonald donates the profits from a number of clinics throughout the

organizations. This year, there were approximately 100 animals that were vaccinated during a three-hour period at the clinic, which was held at the Benjamin Rowe House. A big thanks also goes to those who watch for this event as an opportunity to support their historical society while being responsible pet owners.

LETTERS Right to Work isn’t going to bring manufacturing jobs back to NH To the editor, It is sad when well-intentioned people do what they think is best and only make a situation worse. A local representative had a letter published in The Sun making an argument that Right to Work is key to bringing manufacturing jobs back to N.H. and the Lakes Region. The representative is wrong. The letter presented no logic supporting the assertion. The representative laments the loss of over a thousand manufacturing jobs in the Laconia. Probably true but that does not support the assertion that Right to Work will repair any issue, let alone one related to job creation. Curiously, the lamentation isn’t for the people impacted by job loss it is for the loss of the governmental funding for public services. Can there be a more twisted logic for initiation of Right to Work. The logic seems to say we want bigger government not more manufacturing jobs. Think about that for a moment. The representative laments the loss of two thousand manufacturing jobs in Belknap County. Again, the lamentation isn’t for the people impacted by job loss it is for the reduction in the tax base. This seems to be the clarity of articulation one finds in the statement by the farmer who, wanting to feed his horse says to the farmhand,” Throwing the horse over the fence, some hay.” The Right to Work legislation does nothing to bring those jobs back. It does not change the federally mandated minimum wage. There is no logic presented articulating what the gain will be from passage of the legislation or how the gain will be achieved. There is no accountability mechanism if the assumptions are wrong. The representative laments the loss of thirty eight thousand manufacturing jobs in New Hampshire. The lamentation isn’t for the people impacted by the job loss rather it is for the reduction in the tax base. This is crying over spilled milk. The legislation does nothing to make New Hampshire more competitive. The problem with the position taken by the representative is that it fixes something that is not broken.

No root cause analysis is presented. It suggests Right to Work wastes the legislature’s time and does nothing to improve the competitive position of the state. There is nothing in the representative’s letter that explains how this legislation improves anything. The representative’s letter advocates Right to Work but it fails to explain what is gained. It lacks all critical thought about the goal or the steps necessary to reach the goal. Right to Work does not reduce spending. It does not reduce the debt. It does not change the prevailing wage rates. It does not reduce the regulatory burden. It does not change the tax structure. It does not change energy costs. Where were our representatives when the regulatory burden went up? Why has the regulatory burden not even been a topic of discussion? Is it hard to understand that regulatory burden is a factor in competing for manufacturing jobs? The state has eight major tax sources. A major review of what is being taxed and the rates applied has not been undertaken for decades. Perhaps the business community would be impacted by tax rates. This might be an opportunity for competitive advantage. The cost of energy is a factor in manufacturing. Nothing has even discussed with respect to energy save for Northern Pass. Why? The economy is supposed to have been shifting away from manufacturing and into information services and green jobs. That is the centrally controlled policy of the government. That is what the best and the brightest have come up with for a plan for the country. How’s that working out for you? Looking nostalgically at a time when manufacturing was the main source of employment and tax revenues may be a pleasant stroll down memory lane. Making policy based on this kind of fuzzy logic is akin to driving your car forward while watching only the rear view mirror. Support for Right to Work, as articulated by the representative is wrong for New Hampshire. Marc Abear Meredith

LETTERS As a group, the 22 Right to Work states are ahead of the pack

Councilman Hamel, there is no excuse for you not voing

To the editor, In his letter of May 19 Martin Carney incorrectly claims that workers in Right-to-Work (RTW) states are worse off than those in forced unionization states. Actually they are better off. First. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, average unemployment in the forced unionization states is 8.31-percent, in the 22 RTW states it is 7.95-percent. In addition, 13 of the 22 RTW states are significantly below the national average unemployment rate while only 13 of the 28 forced unionization states are below the national average. Second. Mr. Carney falsely claims that RTW states have a lower standard of living. In general RTW states offer an equal standard of living for less cost. For example, using Sperlings Best Places comparison of costs of living, Concord is about 17-percent more expensive than Houston, 23-percent more than Jacksonville, FL., 15-more more than New Orleans, 1-percent more than Richmond, VA, 25-percent more than Tampa, FL, 30-percent more than Pierre, SD. Comparisons consider: housing, food, utilities, transportation, health, and miscellaneous costs. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reveals that wages vary by state and occupation. Comparing N.H. to five randomly-picked Texas jobs, two jobs paid a little more in Texas and three paid a little more in NH. Considering cost of living the Texas jobs would usually provide a significantly higher standard of living. Insurance underwriter, NH - $64,430, TX- $63,080; computer analyst, NH- $76,510,

To the editor, Thank you to the three members of the Laconia City Council who voted yes to alert our legislators to vote to override the John Lynch veto of Right to Work legislation that passed the N.H. House and Senate overwhelmingly. This would mean that both the public and private sector could fill job openings with highly qualified folks without the dictate of mediocrity that is bred in the private and public sector by labor unions — you know, where the person next to you can slough off and at contract time get the same raise as you. “Right to Work” is a win-win for private/public employers and folks who are more qualified for a position can negotiate a good deal for themselves based upon their worth and experience at another business. As I recall an elected representative of the people allows one to question a fellow member as to why they are abstaining on a vote by the government body — City Council,

TX $81,460; sales managers, NH $117,750, TX$113,900; registered nurses, NH $63,340, TX- $66,180; tellers, NH- $25,680, TX- $23,700. Third. Information from the U.S. Commerce Department shows that from 2000 to 2010, personal income growth in RTW states averaged 24.3-percent, in forced unionization states it averaged 10.9-percent. Fourth. According to the Commerce Department, the US lost 3.66-million private sector jobs from 2000 to 2010. Nevertheless, private sector employment in RTW states gained by 0.3-percent while private sector employment fell on average 5.5-percent in forced unionization states. Fifth. PHH Fantus, the nation’s longtime leader in business relocation, reported that at least half of all businesses looking to expand or relocate start their search by crossing off states that don’t have Right-to-Work laws. To me the more important issue is personal liberty, it is wrong to force people to pay a third party just to get or keep a job. New Hampshire’s Right-to-Work bill, HB 474, provides that personal liberty without affecting people who want to be in a union. Evidence shows that Right-to-Work states provide liberty, choice, and greater worker benefits. Right-toWork is a win-win-win for workers. But, Governor Lynch sided with union bosses over workers and vetoed the Right-to-Work bill. New Hampshire’s Legislature must over-ride Governor Lynch’s veto. Don Ewing Meredith

N.H. House, County Delegation. I have done that during my time serving the people. I have this thing about explaining why one could not vote yes or no. Is it because there is a conflict of interest? Then you should have excused yourself before discussion began! Enough folks voted for you — why are you not representing them? There is no excuse for not voting. As for those members of the N.H. House who show us by their vote against Right to Work we will know they are more interested in pleasing labor unions than seeing N.H. move ahead with more jobs and even better paying jobs — because the best will be working and they will be rewarded for being excellent employees. I for one will not vote for a Democrat or Republican who does not vote to override — in fact, I will work to relieve them from their duty as a representative. Ditto for the State Senate.

Legion is still hosting bingo games; join us on Thursday nights To the editor, Contrary to any rumors that are circulating around Laconia, the Bingo Games at American Legion Post 1 will NOT be shutting down! We have recently had a very poor turnout at our Bingo, which we can attribute to a new, more financially lucrative game at Funspot AND these unfounded rumors. We have had to withstand a loss recently due to poor player turnout, but keep the games operating for our dedicated players. The only thing that could cause us to shutter our doors would be the sustained poor

turnout and loss to the organization. OUR profits go back into the community through youth sports, American Legion Baseball, high school scholarships, children’s programs and helping veterans. These rumors hurt our ability to aid these programs. Instead of spreading these rumors bring another player with you to help bolster our program thus increasing payouts. We play on Thursday nights at 6:30 p.m. See you there. Earlon Beale American Legion Post #1 Laconia

Commissioner George N. Copadis

Rep. Andrew Hemingway

Over the last 30 years, there have been numerous attempts to pass socalled Right to Work legislation in New Hampshire. In the past, each time this type of legislation had been introduced in the legislature, it had been quickly defeated – by both Republican and Democratic majorities. This year is different. Both the House and Senate passed so-called Right to Work legislation for the first time in the state’s history. Thankfully, Gov. John Lynch vetoed this legislation because state government should not be in the business of dictating to private companies what can or cannot be included in contracts with their employees. Despite claims to the contrary, this legislation is neither pro-business nor is it pro-worker. It will do nothing to strengthen New Hampshire’s economy, and in mine – and many others’ opinions – it would weaken it. On Wednesday, the House will vote to override the Governor’s veto. I urge House members to sustain the veto. I also urge the people of New Hampshire to make it clear to their representatives that this is simply not needed in New Hampshire. It may work in the deep South – but New Hampshire is not the deep South. New Hampshire’s economy is one of the strongest in the nation. Our unemployment rate is 45 percent below the national average. We have a high quality of life, fueled by the fact that we have one of the highest incomes per capita in the country. We are the most livable state and the safest state in the nation. And we all know what a great place this is to do business and to raise a

When I heard a loud, angry group of firefighters interrupting the business of the Legislature by shouting in unison from the Statehouse gallery, “We protect your families!,” I wondered as a citizen whether to take that as a threat. I wonder whether it was lost on those firefighters that they were hired and they agreed to protect all families in their districts, regardless of whether that person supports or opposes the Right to Work legislation, regardless of whether someone supports or opposes their regular salary and benefit increases and regardless of whether someone says “thank you” or something quite the contrary for their services. I also wonder if there are any firefighters out there who wish they could disassociate themselves from the union that supports such raucous behavior with their money, particularly since they must pay their union dues in New Hampshire whether they like it or not. I wonder if any of these firefighters would use the Right to Work legislation to get the job they love without being held hostage by the control and involuntary fees of a third party? I’ve spoken with teachers who wish they could opt-out of their union, which forces them to pay money toward efforts to keep their pay level with that of their less capable colleagues. Good teachers and their students are harmed by such union rules that prop up poorly performing instructors, but good teachers and students are not allowed to do anything about it. They get to pay for the privilege to be held back. The private sector unions are not immune from such scrutiny. The autoworkers, for instance, ran General Motors into the ground with their unsustainable demands, which could have cost everyone at the company their jobs, even those who didn’t want to join the union and were happy with a more reasonable arrangement with their employer. Were GM in a Right to Work state, the company could have hired non-union employees willing and able to work for an agreed upon wage and benefit package, and the bailout never would have been necessary. The bottom line is this: Right to Work legislation allows people to work for the company of their choice accord-

So-called Right to Work is wrong for New Hampshire family. So-called Right to Work states – such as Alabama, Arkansas and Mississippi – routinely have a much higher poverty rate, and much lower income per capita. We are leading the way here in New Hampshire. Why would we want to reverse direction and follow the lead of those states? New Hampshire Department of Resources and Economic Development Commissioner George Bald has stated he has met with thousands of businesses over the years, many looking to locate to New Hampshire and many more located right here in our state. Not once has the topic Right to Work ever come up in all of his discussions with New Hampshire businesses and prospective businesses. Not once did a business tell him they would not move to New Hampshire because so-called Right to Work was not in effect. Not once did a New Hampshire business ever tell him they were leaving the state because Right to Work was not in effect. I have been Commissioner of Labor for the last six years. I have met and worked with over 2,000 business leaders in various capacities. Not once has a business leader in this state told me they believe Right to Work should be adopted in this state. Right to Work is wrong for business, wrong for workers and wrong for New Hampshire. I urge lawmakers to do what their predecessors – both Republican and Democrat – have done for years and reject Right to Work in New Hampshire. (George N. Copadis serves as Commissioner of Labor for the State of New Hampshire.)

LETTERS Right to Work isn’t going to bring manufacturing jobs back to NH To the editor, Re; Letter to the editor, 5/21: “Where was she when Shea-Porter was being yelled at?”: Justice calls for commending the author of the letter (Susan Dolan, New Durham) for putting things in perspective. The writer notes that Congressman Guinta in his local meeting was subjected to no more rudeness than former Congresswoman Shea-Porter received in her many “Town Hall” meetings she held during the summer hot season of yelling at her for her vote for health care reform. (The congresswoman calmly replied that she delivered on her cam-

paign promise to vote for improving health care.) I was the camera-person for recording Shea-Porter’s meeting in Alton for LRPA-TV’s Channel 26. I can testify to how rudely she was treated by most of the audience, and how civil she was in her response. I am not a Democrat (I am an “Independent”) and yet I felt moved to apologize to the congresswoman in a subsequent meeting for the terribly inhospitable reception she received in Alton. I am usually proud of Alton, but I was ashamed that night. Bob Longabaugh Alton Bay

Right to Work means more, well-paying jobs for N.H. ing to terms they are willing to accept without being forced by a private, thirdparty entity to pay for unwanted protection and to follow unsustainable or counterproductive rules. Not everyone thinks that the unions are do-gooders with everyone’s interest in mind. And even if these folks who chose not to join a union are wrong, they still have the right in a free society to associate or to not associate with whatever organization they choose without interference. Since New Hampshire is not yet a Right to Work state, Granite Staters are being denied that right. Opponents to the pending Right to Work legislation have said that the law would bring lower wages and poor job conditions, but a quick look at the facts show that these are scare tactics not much different than the one firefighters were using when they were shouting from the Statehouse gallery. In fact, the truth is that Republicans who do not vote for Right to Work legislation will be at great risk of violating their promise to voters to stimulate jobs and promote economic opportunity. The Right to Work law would unquestionably attract jobs to New Hampshire, which would undeniably lead to economic growth and opportunity. It does everywhere else. It took just six months for the State of Oklahoma to move from 40th in job creation to first in the nation after the Sooner State passed Right to Work. That’s just one example. In general, the 22 right-to-work states are more prosperous than union-shop states; they have higher gross state product growth (55-percent verses 41-percent), higher personal income growth (53-percent verses 41-percent) and higher population growth (12-percent verses 6-percent). With the stats and logic on the side of Right to Work, it’s now up to the Republican Party to come together and prove to voters they can fulfill their promises to create jobs and stimulate the economy. This legislation will truly be the test for the party. (Rep. Andrew Hemingway, a Republican from Bristol, is chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire.)

Commissioners want jail to progress from warehouse to correction program By Gail OBer


LACONIA — Commissioners reviewed the Belknap County Complex renovation projects with the Belknap County Convention on Monday, earning its stamp of approval on most of the recommendations. In perhaps one of the most ambitious of programs, Commissioner Ed Philpot, D-Laconia, said the review of the entire county corrections philosophy will precede any changes in the jail facility. “We want to go from being a warehouse to a community correction program,” said Commissioner Stephen Nedeau, R-Meredith. A study, costing $80,000, will begin shortly, starting with a tour of the Belknap county jail during the annual Motorcycle Week. The money is part of the U.S. federal stimulus money commissioners said, and the convention agreed that there was no use spending money to build a jail unless there was community corrections program that would be supported by a new facility and within the fiscal limits of the county taxpayers. With the cot of the annual incarceration of one prison in county jail between $120,000 to $150,000 per inmate, Nedeau said ideally the program would more effective manage pretrial confinements and work to eliminate recidivism — or repeat offending. According to Superintendent Daniel Ward, who has testified at a number of commissioner’s meetings, the Belknap County Jail was built to house 87 inmates and has undergone several renovations and additions since the 1880s when it was originally constructed. Ward said at any given time he has housed upwards of 120 inmates, generally by converting the gymnasium into a dormitory. It addition, the upstairs attic area is used to house women prisoners and has a maximum capacity of 12 although he has housed as many as 16 women at the same time. Nedeau told convention members the crowding and substandard facilities is a “disaster just waiting to happen.” In previous interviews, Ward attributes about 70-percent of the incarRAPTURE from page 2 lighted sign showcasing Camping’s May 21 warning. As the appointed day drew nearer, Hopkins started making the 100-mile round trip from Long Island to New York City twice a day, spending at least $15 on gas each trip. “I’ve been mocked and scoffed and cursed at and I’ve been through a lot with this lighted sign on top of my car,” said Hopkins, 52, a former television producer who lives in Great River, NY. “I was doing what I’ve been instructed to do through the Bible, but now I’ve been stymied. It’s like getting slapped in the face.” Camping, who made a special appearance before the press at the Oakland headquarters of the media empire Monday evening, apologized for not having the dates “worked out as accurately as I could have.” Through chatting with a friend over what he acknowledged was a very

cerated population to drug and alcohol issues and one of Philpot’s future hopes is to have a drug court within the Belknap County system. “The local courts are a river of alcohol and substance abuse,” said Convention Chair Alida Millham (R-Gilford), repeating what a state judge had previous told her. Philpot added that mental health issues along with drugs and domestic abuse are the instances that involve the most repeat incarcerations. Barnstead Rep. Elaine Swinford said repealing some of what she called the more “unreasonable drugs laws would be a start. “A seed in an ashtray can land you in jail,” she said. Rep. Robert Kingsbury (R-Laocnia) and Rep. Bob Greemore (R-Meredith) said they would like to see participation in the upcoming study include some local people including one of the convention members and some of the local law enforcement. Swinford also said with a newly designed corrections program, the county could potentially reduce some of the money it sends to outside agencies who perform many of the duties a community corrections system should. County Administrator Debra Shackett said the initial study group will include county employees such as Sheriff Craig Wiggin and Youth Services Director Brian Loanes as well as a local judge, the N.H. Public Defenders Office and staff from Belknap County Attorney Melissa Guldbrandsen’s office. She said after the initial study, members of the rest of the community will be encouraged to participate. She also said it will be one of the prime subjects for the annual round of “county conversations” with individual municipal governing bodies that begin in July. Other capital projects are fixing the roof over the Sheriff’s Department dispatch area, finishing the Belknap County Complex renovation that includes a small office for each commissioner so as to avoid Right To Know conflicts, a security door in the County Attorney’s Office, a secure reception area in the Sheriff’s Department, and air conditioning for the nursing home laundry. difficult weekend, it dawned on him that instead of the biblical Rapture in which the faithful would be swept up to the heavens, May 21 had instead been a “spiritual” Judgment Day, which places the entire world under Christ’s judgment, he said. The globe will be completely destroyed in five months, he said, when the apocalypse comes. But because God’s judgment and salvation were completed on Saturday, there’s no point in continuing to warn people about it, so his network will now just play Christian music and programs until the final end on Oct. 21. “We’ve always said May 21 was the day, but we didn’t understand altogether the spiritual meaning,” he said. “The fact is there is only one kind of people who will ascend into heaven ... if God has saved them they’re going to be caught up.”

80-thousand feet or bust: Huot Center students launch high altitude balloon carrying camera By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

GILFORD — Students from the Huot Regional Technical Education Center got some hands-on experience in launching a high altitude balloon Tuesday morning at Laconia Municipal Airport. A strong wind out of the west arrived just as the launch took place around 11 a.m. and the balloon quickly shot up into the air with its four an a half pound payload and headed east across Lake Winnipesaukee. “It feels good. It was an awesome launch,’’ said John Daniszewski, a Laconia High School senior who was tasked with holding the balloon down as it was inflated with helium. He and Robbie Vachon, also from Laconia, held the balloon’s neck tightly as it was wrapped with duct tape to prevent it from leaking and the payload, which consisted of a battery, electronics, a GPS beacon and a lightweight fast frame camera, was attached to the balloon. The hope is that the balloon will reach an altitude of 80,000 feet and that the CMOS camera, which is faster and lighter than a CCD camera, will capture frames which show the earth’s curvature according to Dan Caron of the newly-formed Aviation and Aerospace Education Center at Winnipesaukee. Caron, an Air Force Association 2004 Teacher of the Year Award recipient, said that a balloon launched last year from Kingswood Regional High School in Wolfeboro reached an altitude of 80,000 feet and captured some amazing photos. “We’re hoping this one will go at least that high,’’ said Caron, who says that the education center is a non-profit venture designed to promote interest among young people in science, technology, engineering and math, the so-called STEM subjects, in order to make the American education system competitive with that of other nations. Ken Martin, who teaches pre-engineering and manufacturing at the Huot Center, said that the students involved in the balloon launch are planning careers in mechanical and aeronautical engineering and that the hands-on experience gained by the students is invaluable for their future careers. “They’re all going on to college and this kind of activity, along with their classroom work on this curriculum, will help prepare them for the challenges they’ll face,’’ said Martin. The balloon which was launched is a prototype developed by VentureKits, a New York based nonprofit dedicated to the vitality of science and math education. “This is our fourth launch and our fourth success,’’ said Armin Ellis, co-founder of VentureKits, who said that the company is moving toward mass pro-

duction of the balloon kits with an eye to an expanding market in the educational field. Ellis, who earned his PhD at Dartmouth College, said that he met Caron while working on his degree and knowing of his interest in aviation and aerospace, asked him to work with VentureKits in developing a curriculum which would include such diverse elements as atmospherics and engineering for use with the balloons. “The kids get to a do a lot of things, from understanding concepts and design and contributing their own ideas, in a project like this which culminates with an actual launch. It holds their interest and really motivates their learning,’’ says Ellis. Bill Seed, a Gilford realtor and one of the directors of Aviation and Aerospace Education Center, says that the non-profit organization plans to acquire two adjacent hangar buildings at the airport to house its programs, which would include a Take Flight Resource Center. “We’re looking at a regional approach which would help train teachers and excite students,’’ says Seed. see next page

Dropping of state standard for allowable traces of arsenic in potable water supply puts Inter-Lakes schools in reactive mode By Gail OBer


MEREDITH — School Board members last night were apprised of three different options to eliminate low levels of arsenic detected in the Inter-Lakes Elementary School’s water supply. Water is supplied through a well and through routine testing, the state Department of Environmental Science determined in January that its most recent test had failed a maximum allowable threshold. Temperino said the state recently dropped its arsenic standards from 50 parts-per-billion to 10 parts-per-billion and the elementary school levels hover around 13 parts-per-billion. The three possible solutions include digging a new well, treating the water from the existing well or building a water line from the municipal water supply to the school through Prescott Park. A note went home to parents in February and Temperino said the principal does provide bottled water for the students to drink. She said the levels are not severe enough to affect the on-site preparation of school lunches. Maintenance Director Chris Wald has been working with the DES and recommended treating the water with a salt-water softener as the best and most efficient solution. He said a new well would more than likely tap the same underground water supply and building a water pipe to the school could cost upwards of $100,000. “Is this treatable?” asked Board Chair Richard Hanson who said he wants the problem fixed the right way and not necessarily the least expensive way. “I want to assure the board we are not looking for the cheapest way out,” Temperino said. “We test frequently and the parents are pretty used to getting the letters.” Wald, with the assistance of the DES, said he determined the arsenic was inorganic and would respond to the treatment. He estimated a treatment system could cost between $15,000 and $20,000 and would have ongoing costs of about 10 pounds of salt softener monthly. The elementary school uses about 1,300 gallons of water daily. Arsenic occurs naturally and is more likely than not present at some minor concentration levels in most New England wells. In other action, the board agreed to listen to a from preceding page Diane Cooper, airport general manager, says that she is excited about the education center’s plans and thinks it would be a wonderful resource for educators and those interested in careers in aviation and aerospace.

presentation from Glacial Energy — a wholesale energy company that pools energy resources and may save school district some money through bulk purchasing. “I would like to know more,” said Vice Chair Howard Cunningham who agreed with Hanson and member Jack Carty that hearing the presentation reflected no commitment of the board’s part to Glacial Energy or the Town of Meredith that suggested the presentation. The board also agreed to reschedule one of next month’s meetings to June 23 in order to listen to a presentation from the Local Government Center about health insurance and the results of its study as to what factors are driving the soaring costs. Cunningham suggested the heads of the unions be formally invited to the presentation and also suggested the meeting be held in a larger forum because there may be many school district employees and members of the public who would be interested in hearing the presentation. No decision was made on an alternative meeting site but Superintendent Phil McCormick said he doesn’t think the board should officially invite all of the staff to the session at this point in time, but agreed that it was a public meeting and the site should be large enough to accommodate all who wish to attend. He said the heads of the union have already been notified about the presentation.

Body of boy found in Maine returned to Texas for weekend funeral

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — A family friend says the body of a boy left along a dirt road in Maine is back in Texas for a funeral to be held this weekend. Shirley Miller, a long-time friend in Texas, told the Associated Press Tuesday that the body of 6-year-old Camden Hughes is back on Texas soil. The funeral is scheduled for Saturday. Camden’s body was released Friday by the Maine medical examiner. The boy’s mother, Julianne McCrery, of Irving, Texas, is being held in New Hampshire, where she’s charged with killing the boy before leaving him in South Berwick, Maine. She was originally detained in Massachusetts. Miller says McCrery’s father, her other son and the son’s father traveled to Maine to retrieve Camden’s remains. She says they didn’t meet with Julianna McCrery.

Council made aware of 36-year-old ordinance, never enforced, that would add substantially to building costs By Michael Kitch

LACONIA — Homebuilder Kevin Morrissette told the City Council this week that a recently discovered ordinance requiring architectural or engineered plans, bearing stamp, for all one and two-family dwellings is a unnecessary cost and hindrance to development. Morrissette urged the council to repeal the ordinance, adding “time is off the essence. If it weren’t for this, I’d be digging a cellar hole now.” The council referred the issue to its Government Operations Subcommittee. Bill Stewart, the code enforcement director, said that the ordinance was adopted in 1975, but to the best of his knowledge has never been enforced. It applies to residential buildings, but commercial buildings of less than 4,000 square feet are exempt.

Morrissette said that the inconsistent application made a mockery of the ordinance. “Someone could build commercial building of less than 3,900 square feet without having to get a stamp,” Morrissette said, “but a 1,200-square foot house requires a stamp at substantial cost.” He said that the required stamped plans could cost between $3,000 and $5,000. “I could not find another municipality that asks for it,” he continued. “It’s a very unusual situation and doesn’t make sense.” Although Stewart said he agreed that the ordinance treats residential and commercial construction inconsistently, he described it as “necessary.” He explained that architectural or engineered plans improve the quality of newly constructed housing and shifts liability to the responsible parties. Rather than repeal the ordinance he would prefer to apply to all commercial as well as residential construction.

SEWER from page one Councilors were clearly troubled by the magnitude of the proposed rate increases “A 30-percent increase out of left field is not workable,” said Councilor Henry Lipman (Ward 3), chairman of the council’s Finance Committee. Lipman was especially concerned at rate increase needed to fund the WRBP’s capital program. “We must find a different means of financing capital projects other than 30-percent rate shocks.,” he said. The proposal was referred to the Finance Committee, which is expected to report next month. The sanitary sewer fund is a so-called enterprise fund, which defrays its operating costs and capital outlays with operating revenue from sewer rates and interest income on retained earnings. Since 2008 the fund has posted an operating deficit, which rose from $62,680 in 2008-2009 to $540,855 in 2009201o and is projected to reach $500,000 again in 2010-11. The 2011-2012 budget projects the operating deficit will top $1-million. Sewer rates consist of two parts, a fixed quarterly charge and a consumption charges based on water usage measured in units of hundred cubic feet (HCF). An HCF is equivalent to 750 gallons of water. The average household uses 120 HCF of water, or 90,000 gallons, a year. The deficit in the sanitary sewer fund has arisen from three factors. As the sluggish economy and greater conservation have dampened water sales, the proceeds from consumption charges have dwindled. Moynihan reported that water usage fell from 687,690 HCF in 2006 to 525,600 HCF in 2010, a drop of nearly 25-percent. Second, as interest rates plummeted, interest income dropped even more sharply, from $114,460

in 2008 to $37,033, and is budgeted to shrink to $12,000 next year. Finally, expenses of the WRBP which collects and treats the city’s sewage, are rising. Laconia’s share of the WRBP budget, which represents approximately two-thirds of the sanitary sewer fund budget, rose 27-percent between 2007 and 2010 and is slated to increase another 3-percent in 2011-2012. Sewer rates were last increased in 2007, when the cost to the average household went from $281 to $395, or by 40.5-percent. To overcome the deficit, Moynihan, together with acting city manager Pam Reynolds, propose raising sewer rates over the next three years, beginning with a 30-percent increase in July. The fixed quarterly charge would rise from $27.25 a to $30 , or 9-percent, and the consumption charge would rise from $2.39 HCF to $3.30 HCF, or by 38-percent. The annual cost to the average household is projected to increase from $395 to $516, or by 30-percent. Reynolds stressed that among neighboring municipalities, only Belmont, where the sewer rate is the lowest in the state, currently charges less than Laconia. With the increase, the city’s rates will top those of Belmont and Tilton, but remain less than Gilford, Meredith and Franklin. Despite the increase, revenues will again fall short of expenses. Consequently, Reynolds proposes a second increase in July, 2012, when the fixed quarterly charge would rise to $38.25, or by 28-percent, and the consumption rate would rise to $3.92 HCF, or by 19-percent, to put the system in the black. The annual cost to the average household is projected to climb another 21-percent, from $516 to $623. With the second increase, Laconia’s rates would remain see next page

New York Times corrects N.H. man’s obituary, 112-years years after the death WALPOLE, N.H. (AP) — When Daniel Schwenk came across his great-uncle’s 112-year-old obituary in The New York Times, he noticed some errors and sent a lighthearted letter to the paper. He didn’t count on a full-length story Tuesday correcting the mistakes. “We just did it as sort of a tongue-in-cheek thing, but it’s blossomed out,” said Schwenk, 77, a retired dentist who lives in Walpole, N.H. The obituary published June 29, 1889, was for Lt. Milton K. Schwenk. The five-paragraph story listed his first name as Melton, not Milton. It had

the wrong dates for his years spent at the United States Naval Academy and his family’s hometown and state. The story also said his father, Abraham, immigrated to the United States, when really he was born in Schuylkill County, Pa. “I realize it is a tad late,” Daniel Schwenk wrote last month, “but I would like to correct the notice.” The Times took it seriously and dug into Milton Schwenk’s past, even looking at other newspapers’ obituaries on him and at a book about the family. It see next page

STATE SCHOOL from page one committee adopted the amendment and added to the proposed budget, which is expected to be completed tomorrow. However, Senator Jeanie Forrester (R-Meredith), a member of the Finance Committee said that she had yet to see the amendment and that it had not been discussed in committee. “I heard about it and understand we are going to discuss it tomorrow,” she said. In April, the City Council agreed to commission Russ Thibeault of Applied Economic Research to appraise the property in anticipation of preparing a bid for some or all of the properties. City Councilor Matt Lahey (Ward 2), who chaired a commission convened by the Legislature to study how the site could be redeveloped, suggested the initiative. The site consists of four parcels, including some 60 acres adjacent to the Robbie Mills Sports Complex known as Hank Risley Field, which is owned by the state, but provides parking for the complex, which is home to the Laconia Muskrats of the New England Collegiate Baseball League. Stressing the importance of parking to success of the complex, Lahey proposed seeking to acquire the parcel. Furthermore, Lahey suggested the city also consider acquiring the 77 acres bordered by North Main Street, Meredith Center Road and Right Way Path, which represents about a third of the former

state school site. To facilitate the transaction, Lahey suggested the city offer to surrender its long-term leases on two other, smaller state-owned parcels, one of 7.5 acres at the corner of Meredith Center Road and Lane Road and another of 10.4 acres between North Main Street and Old North Main Street. Unencumbered by the leases, the properties could be offered for sale. Earlier this month, when the Senate Finance Committee began weighing the sale of the site, Lahey journeyed to Concord to explain the city’s interest in it. Morse welcomed the city’s proposal after learning that in order to sell the property the state would have to spend more than $500,000 on legal, appraisal and marketing services as well as an environmental assessment, to bring it to market. Calling the site “a money pit,” Morse considered transferring the property to the city a preferable alternative and indicated that if an arrangement could be reached, he would seek to withdraw the funding for roof repairs and environmental assessment at the site from the 2012-2013 capital budget. Morse proposed a meeting with city officials and Governor John Lynch, who also proposed selling the site in his budget address, to discuss the future of the property. However, after two false starts, the meeting has not taken place.

SHOES from page one On June 2, at the first Laconia Downtown Farmers’ Market of the season, a booth will be set up with a pile of shoes. Residents who wish to participate – individuals, families, clubs, organizations, businesses, anyone really – will select a shoe and then draw at random the name of one of the 35 participating downtown businesses. The participants will then have two weeks to transform the shoe into something representative of the business they drew. “They can paint it, they can add to it, they can take away, they can do anything,” Frates said. By June 18, the transformed shoes should be delivered to the respective businesses, where they will be displayed through June 28. From June 20 to 28, while the shoes are on display, members of the public can stop in to LaBelle’s Shoe Repair and collect a walking map of the downtown area, listing the locations of all the shoes. The idea is for people to follow the route and return to LaBelle’s to cast a ballot for their favorite. The winning shoe maker will be announced at the June 30 Farmers’ Market, where all entries will be exhibited. Frates said the range of participating businesses illustrated a downtown that has a lot to offer residents. Through the walk, residents will visit florists,

a coffee shop, bakeries, restaurants, lawyers, a cycle shop, barbers and salons and others. A point which Frates hopes the event will make is that all these independent, local merchants exist within easy walking distance of one another. “The reason I think it’s worth doing is it brings the community together. It breaks down the stereotypes and the walls. Realizing that yes, times are tough, but you still have to smile, you still have to have a good time,” said Frates. “I think it’s great, it’s going to get a lot of people involved in downtown,” said Jan Boudreau, current owner of LaBelle’s Shoe Repair. “And, it’s just for fun,” said Randy Bullerwell, owner of All My Life Jewelers, another one of the participating businesses. Frates said it was a conscious decision of the informal group to put on the event without engaging with the Laconia Main Street organization, the Chamber of Commerce or Belknap Independent Business Alliance. This event was conceived to exist without attaching itself to the agenda of an existing organization. “Why wait for someone else to do something?” Frates asked. “Sometimes merchants have to take the shoe by the horn and do something.”

Reynolds anticipates a third rate hike will be required in July, 2013 to pay the city’s share of the increase in the WRBP’s debt service to fund the ultraviolet disinfection system and other improvements at its waste-water treatment plant in Franklin. Moynihan told the councilors that although the total project cost was originally estimated at $8.8-million, Penta Corporation of Moultonborough submitted a low bid of $7.4-million. Moreover, the WRBP received grants totaling $1.2-million, which will reduce the cost to the 10 member municipalities to $6.2-million, which will be borrowed over 20 years.

Laconia, with more than half the 14,500 connections to the WRBP, contributes 40.55 to the principal and interest payments of the program. Beginning in 2014, the project is estimated to increase the city’s share of the WRBP’s debt service by $247,647 , from $259,308 to $500,645 . Reynolds said that she has yet to calculate the rate increase required to defray the cost of the additional debt. Councilor Ava Doyle (Ward 1) said that since as water usage decreased and sewer rates increased, ratepayers were being penalized for conserving water. She was especially concerned at the adverse impact the rising sewer rates would have on the hospitality industry at The Weirs.

PSU awards 860 undergraduate degrees PLYMOUTH — Plymouth State University awarded 860 undergraduate degrees May 21 during its 140th Commencement, a ceremony moved indoors due to inclement weather. Accompanied by a bagpiper, the graduating seniors and faculty marched into venues at the Foley Gymnasium, the Hartman Union Building and the Silver Center for the Arts to celebrate the class of 2011. The crowd of several thousand people was welcomed by PSU President Sara Jayne Steen, who acknowledged the graduates’ hard work and determination in earning a degree, and she urged them to use it to improve their future. “You will have the opportunity granted to few people throughout human history — to earn your living doing something you genuinely love,” Steen said. “All of you here today are carrying other people’s dreams, as well as your own. You’ve worked hard to get this also have been given a great gift. Please use it well.” Senior class President John East congratulated his classmates on their accomplishments, but urged them to never let go of their dreams. “It is time for us to take control of our lives, and be self motivated to achieve our dreams,” said East. “Your work is to discover the world, and with all of your heart, give yourself to it. Surround yourself with work and people that make you smile, and that is all you will ever need in life.” Steen, USNH Chancellor Edward

MacKay and George Epstein, vice chair of the USNH Board of Trustees, presented Honorary Doctorates of Business to Dick and Betty Hanaway of Holderness for their notable business, civic and humanitarian accomplishments throughout the Lakes Region. “Betty and I are proud to have been a part of the ongoing transformation of this region we love so much,” said Dick Hanaway. “We would like you to think that you, too, could join us in making a difference. It is with humility and a profound sense of gratitude that we accept these honorary degrees.” Betty Hanaway thanked the University for the recognition, and then quoted Oliver Wendell Holmes, stating, “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” Grappone Automotive Group CEO and Plymouth State alum Larry Haynes then delivered the commencement address, advising the graduates to embrace the opportunities a college degree provides them, and never waste time. “The one thing we do not get back in life is time, and when it’s gone, it’s gone forever,” Haynes said. “Be sure to embrace challenges — don’t shy away from them. Anyone can do the easy stuff. The more challenges you take on, the more you will learn and grow as a person.and keep both your eyes and your minds wide open.”

Moving numbers around, police chief implores council to restore $13k budget for crossing guards LACONIA — Chief Mike Moyer assured the City Council this week that the Police Department budget was adequate, but asked to restore the $13,000 for crossing guards requested by the department and eliminated by the city manager. “I’m very hesitant about cutting them from the budget,” Moyer said. “I’d hate to see anyone get hurt for $13,000.” He proposed offsetting the additional expense by reducing the appropriation for part-time officers from $50,000 to $40,000 and leaving the position of animal control officer

vacant for several month. In anticipation that further reductions in expenditures may be required to compensate for increased retirement costs transferred to the city by the state Moyer said “we have a plan B” to cut $57,000. With Lieutenant Chris Adams set to succeed him, the chief said that Adams’ position, the equivalent of a patrolman, could be left open and a detective moved to patrol to ensure full shifts. “We need the boots on the ground,” he said. — Michael Kitch

WILLIS from page one Phelps began testifying after Merrimack Superior Court Judge Larry Smukler ruled Tuesday that conversations Phelps had with Willis after learning Anderson was pregnant were not protected by pastoral privilege. “He said that he was the aggressor,” Phelps said of Willis’ admissions. Anderson, seated in the front row of the courtroom, wept openly and repeatedly shook her head as Phelps testified. Smukler called a recess and cautioned lawyers about the possibility of a mistrial if Anderson could not control

her emotions, one of the lawyers said. Anderson did not return to the courtroom for the rest of the afternoon. Phelps testified he believed Willis was going to be arrested in 1997, after Phelps told police he knew that a church member having sex with an underage child. But Phelps also said he helped arrange Anderson’s relocation to Colorado to live with a Baptist family there and put her baby up for adoption. Phelps said Concord police never followed up with him and got defensive when asked by prosecutor Wayne Coull whether he notified police that Anderson would be leaving the state. Phelps said he did not. “I didn’t whisk her away,” said Phelps. “I’ve been thrown under the bus on this thing.” Phelps testified that Anderson’s apology to the congregation was voluntary and meant to help her secure the congregation’s “love and support.” see next page

from preceding page also had background on an 1887 gunshot wound to his hand that cut short his career in the Navy. Daniel Schwenk said that through the process, he learned that his great uncle has some descendants that he hopes to meet some day.

Beckett leads Red Sox to 4-2 win in Cleveland CLEVELAND (AP) — Once upon an October, Josh Beckett got his first win at Progressive Field. Four years later, with not nearly as much at stake, he got No. 2. Beckett picked up first regular-season win in Cleveland — where he pitched an October gem to save Boston’s season in 2007 — to lead the Red Sox to a 4-2 win Tuesday night over the Indians, who couldn’t quite muster another late-inning rally. Beckett (4-1) allowed one run and five hits in 6 2-3 innings and lowered his ERA to an AL-low 1.69. Afterward, he was asked if it felt good to finally end his winless drought in Cleveland. “I think I won here in the playoffs,” he said, straight-faced. “It’s not my first win at Progressive Field. Those wins (in October) are bigger anyway, aren’t they?” Indeed. With the Red Sox trailing 3-1 in the series and on the brink of elimination, Beckett won Game 5 of the 2007 ALCS, striking out 11 in eight dominant from preceding page “This was no shunning, if that’s where you’re going,” Phelps said. But former church members who witnessed it testified Tuesday Anderson appeared terrified and humiliated. Christine Barnhart had recently joined Trinity Baptist Church in 1997, when Anderson was part of what Barnhart described as “a church discipline session.” Barnhart said Anderson was “pale as a ghost, scared to death, a frightened little child.” Barnhart said she was “mortified” by session. The Associated Press typically doesn’t identify those who say they are victims of sexual assault, but Anderson has agreed to have her name published and has been the subject of extensive media coverage because of the circumstances of the case. Concord police said they could not locate Anderson in 1997 to investigate the rape allegations reported by both Phelps and Anderson’s mother, and the case was shelved. It was Barnhart’s husband, Matt, who last year posted information about the church discipline session to a blog dealing with Independent Fundamentalist Baptist “cult survivors.” His post ultimately led police to Anderson and Willis was arrested.

innings to beat CC Sabathia. Boston rallied to win the next two at home and made the World Series. “Nah, not a big win at all,” Beckett said sarcastically on his way out of Boston’s clubhouse. Jason Varitek hit a two-run homer in the seventh off Fausto Carmona (3-5), and Jonathan Papelbon got his ninth save as the Red Sox continued to make up ground in the standings. They are a league-best 15-7 in May, and in the thick of the AL East race after an 0-6 start. Adrian Gonzalez hit an RBI single for the Red Sox, who ended a five-game losing streak in Cleveland. Boston has won nine of 11. Travis Buck homered in the ninth for the Indians, who had their four-game winning streak stopped and were hurt by running into outs four times. Cleveland, which dropped to 19-5 at home, had a runner thrown out at third to end the second; Varitek gunned down would-be base stealers at second in the third and fourth; and Matt LaPorta got doubled up off first for the final out in the fifth. Anderson’s mother, Christine Leaf, testified Tuesday she did not follow up on her report to the police because she thought they would pursue Willis. “I was under the impression Mr. Willis was going to turn himself in and admit to having sex with my child,” Leaf she said, referring back to 1997. She was asked whether it made her angry that Willis did not do that. “No, I tend to forget things,” Leaf replied. Leaf testified she did not try to keep her daughter’s whereabouts a secret to police or relatives who were trying to reach out to her. But her sister-in-law, Barbara Kingsbury, contradicted that testimony. Kingsbury said she asked Leaf for Anderson’s address so she could write to her and invite her to come live with Kingsbury’s family in Boscawen. “She (Leaf) said no one was allowed to know where she was at,” Kingsbury said. Coull asked Leaf why she didn’t bring her daughter to talk with police before the move to Colorado. “I could not force my daughter to do anything,” Leaf replied. “Except move her from her friends and family to live with strangers in Colorado?” Coull pressed. “Yes. It was the right thing to do,” Leaf replied. Phelps will resume testifying Wednesday. Willis’ lawyers say he also will testify.

Pooch Café LOLA

By Holiday Mathis powerful and empowering. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It’s easy for you to get attention when you want it. But you’re not always sure what to do with it once you have it. Get back in touch with your purpose. Remember what you want. Then you’ll make the attention you get count. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You want to know what motivates people, and you also want to know how they do what they do. Your curiosity will make others feel important, and they will want to share openly with you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Levity and mischief are in order. Refuse to be too serious, and for a while, it will seem as though you live outside the fixed rules and structures of ordinary existence. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ve had some luck with the game you’ve been playing. Your winnings satisfied you for a time, but that time is over. Now you want to raise the stakes again to make things interesting. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You may not be in charge, but you are in the know about what’s going on with your people, and this gives you a certain influence. You believe in yourself, and others believe in you, too. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 25). Education is your ticket to success, and you’ll quickly learn what you need to know. June features the loving words you long to hear. You’ll attract money in July. Resist using it to establish your status. Remain conservative and low key, and you’ll be financially comfortable. You’ll be offered a prime opportunity in September. Leo and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 26, 43, 9, 45 and 28.

by Richard Thompson

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The best leaders understand that leadership is a humbling position. To adopt a vision that is right for everyone in your group, you have to really listen well to the others. You’ll do a stellar job of this. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll be in a curious, experimental mood, and you’ll lead with your sense of fun and adventure. Because of this, you will land in a magical state of mind, and others will live in your magic, as well. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It’s a lucky day for retail therapy because you’ll accurately estimate what you need. You’ll get a lot of use out of what you purchase today, and you’ll get the best price, too. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You never want to be a nag. That’s why you’ll search for the most enticing and imaginative way to keep someone thinking about the benefits of doing what you want them to do. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Some friends need more patience and compassion than others. Being a good pal sometimes means having to overlook thoughtless comments, especially when they were clearly not intended to harm. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You love to nurture others and witness their development. You will experience one of your favorite kind of moments today -- the one where you see the lights come on because a person finally understands. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). As the sign of the scales, you balance opposing qualities in a way that makes others marvel. For instance, today you are simultaneously confident and modest,

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, May 25, 2011— Page 19

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Wednesday, May 25, the 145th day of 2011. There are 220 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 25, 1961, President John F. Kennedy told a joint session of Congress: “I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth.” (That goal was accomplished eight years later with the Apollo 11 mission.) On this date: In 1787, the Constitutional Convention began meeting in Philadelphia after enough delegates had shown up for a quorum. In 1895, playwright Oscar Wilde was convicted of a morals charge in London; he was sentenced to two years in prison. In 1911, Mexican President Porfirio Diaz resigned; he went into exile in France for the rest of his life. In 1935, Babe Ruth hit the 714th and final home run of his career, for the Boston Braves, in a game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. In 1946, Transjordan (now Jordan) became a kingdom as it proclaimed its new monarch, Abdullah I. In 1968, the Gateway Arch in St. Louis was dedicated by Vice President Hubert Humphrey and Interior Secretary Stewart Udall. In 1979, 273 people died when an American Airlines DC-10 crashed on takeoff from Chicago’s O’Hare airport. In 1981, daredevil Dan Goodwin, wearing a Spiderman costume, scaled the outside of Chicago’s Sears Tower in 7½ hours. In 1986, an estimated 7 million Americans participated in “Hands Across America” to raise money for the nation’s hungry and homeless. One year ago: President Barack Obama ordered 1,200 National Guard troops to boost security along the U.S.-Mexico border. Today’s Birthdays: Country singer-songwriter Tom T. Hall is 75. Actor Sir Ian McKellen is 72. Country singer Jessi Colter is 68. Actress-singer Leslie Uggams is 68. Movie director and Muppeteer Frank Oz is 67. Actress Karen Valentine is 64. Rock singer Klaus Meine (The Scorpions) is 63. Actress Patti D’Arbanville is 60. Actress Connie Sellecca is 56. Rock singer-musician Paul Weller is 53. Actor-comedian Mike Myers is 48. Actor Matt Borlenghi is 44. Actor Joseph Reitman is 43. Rock musician Glen Drover is 42. Actress Anne Heche (haych) is 42. Actresses Lindsay and Sidney Greenbush (TV: “Little House on the Prairie”) are 41. Actor-comedian Jamie Kennedy is 41. Actor Justin Henry is 40. Actress Molly Sims is 38. Singer Lauryn Hill is 36.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, May 25, 2011— Page 21


Dear Annie: Nearly 23 years ago, at the end of my Ph.D. studies, I became ill with severe depression. Not recognizing the problem, I self-medicated with illegal drugs and became an addict. I was so messed up that I had to move back in with my parents, who provided a roof over my head but nothing else. My father, a doctor, sent me to a psychiatrist who misdiagnosed me with bipolar disease. I was unable to work and had no money. At the end of a year, I was no better. I tried to burglarize my father’s office to get drugs, and my parents had me arrested. They then disowned me, and I became homeless. I lived in a shelter and began working at simple jobs I felt I could handle. After two years, a friend insisted I be hospitalized in a mental health facility. A psychiatrist there correctly diagnosed me with major depression and began treatment. Within a matter of weeks, I was much improved and able to stop using illegal drugs. From there, I found a job near my educational level. I later married and have since lived a productive and happy life. Here’s the problem: I have seven siblings. Some of them still speak ill of me to others, even manufacturing dramatic lies about me. My recovery has seemingly meant nothing to them. Can you help me understand why they drag me down like this? After all the years I lost, it seems like a very ugly thing to do. Is there anything I can say or do to stop it? -- Long Recovered Dear Recovered: You need to tell your siblings how much this hurts you. People who exaggerate and gossip often do so because they crave attention, and in some perverse way, your siblings believe your story gives them celebrity status while making them feel superior. You might ask them why they feel the need to denigrate you to others. Then ask if they will please stop because it is hurtful and undermines

whatever sibling relationship you have. Dear Annie: I associate with some older gentlemen through my church. Many of them have nose hairs and eyebrows so long you could comb them. Why aren’t their wives telling them to take care of this? It is repulsive for those of us who have to look up at them while conversing. Ladies, please be helpmates to your husbands. -- Turned Off Dear Turned Off: We have to assume these men do not realize they have hairs hanging from unattractive places, and it’s possible no one around them is willing to bring up the issue. And at some point, the eyesight can weaken, and these hairs are not noticed. We urge people to take care of their personal grooming since it makes an impression, justified or not, and if you need a magnification mirror, get one. Dear Annie: I sympathize with “Fed-Up Roommate,” whose friend insists on controlling everything within their apartment and makes her life miserable. Years ago, I was in a similar situation. With the landlord’s approval, I gave my roommate 30 days’ notice to find someone else to live with her, and I moved out. If “Fed Up” can afford to do this, she might consider taking this action rather than suffering through another nine months of her roommate’s bossiness until the lease expires. When people are considering moving in together, it is important that they have a serious talk beforehand about housekeeping, bill paying, visitors and anything else that can come up when you room with another person. Even best friends who think they know each other well can be unpleasantly surprised when they are sharing close quarters. In my case, moving in with my best friend ruined the relationship. -- Sadder but Wiser

This project will construct a groundwater treatment facility to remove excessive levels of iron and manganese from the City’s Acme and Franklin Falls Wells.

system will minimize further deceased carrying capacity of system pipelines and associated fire flows. “This has been a team effort and users of the City’s water system will benefit from the partnerships that were formed to make this project a reality,” said Brian Sullivan, Municipal Services director, about the department’s commitment to improving the quality of Franklin’s public drinking water and the work involved in securing funding to see this project through to completion. “This process began back in October of 2007” and “without the support of the Franklin City Council, City Manager, and all City department heads, NH Department of Environmental Services and USDA Rural Development, we would have never been able to pull this off.” City Councilor and Chair of the Municipal Services

Department (MSD) Committee, Jay Bowers, agreed and added that when Sullivan took over as MSD chairman five years ago, “he had two major goals — first was a workable recycling program that would save the city money; and second, a solution for the City’s decade old ‘brown water’ problem. This groundbreaking ceremony culminates the hard work of many people to put an end to [that] problem.” Mayor Ken Merrifield, added that he too was happy to say that this project will help correct a long-standing water quality issue for our residents. “My hat is off to the municipal services committee, Manager Dragon, Director Sullivan, and his team; all those who helped fund the facility-including our city’s water customers.” For more, contact City Manager Elizabeth Dragon at 934-3900.
