25-year-old killed in late night crash on Mile Hill Rd. By Gail OBer

LaCONia, N.H.

LACONIA — A Franklin man was killed early Thursday morning when he appeared to have lost control of his car on Mile Hill Road. Laconia Police confirmed that Jamison Kaplan, 25, who

last known address was 368 Main Street in Franklin was thrown from the vehicle as it was climbing Prescott Hill from Laconia to Belmont. According to Jim Tarte, who lives at 260 Mile Hill Road, he was sleeping when he awoke to see and hear ambulances and

police on his front lawn. He said he saw Kaplan partially hanging out from the passenger side window and it seemed to him car had flipped over three or four times and landed on its roof. Tarte said it appeared as though Kaplan suffered neck, back and head injuries.

Tarte said there was a second young man and a young woman with Kaplan but they were both taken to Lakes Region General Hospital where Laconia Police Capt. Steven Clarke said he understands they were treated and released. CraSH from page one 10

War-weary House majority sends Obama a message on Afghanistan

WASHINGTON (AP) — War-weary Republicans and Democrats on Thursday sent the strongest message yet to President Barack Obama to end the war in Afghanistan as the commander in chief decides how many U.S. troops to withdraw this summer. A measure requiring an accelerated timetable for pulling out the 100,000 troops from Afghanistan and an exit strategy for the nearly 10-year-old conflict secured 204 votes in the House, falling just short of passage but boosting the hopes of its surprised proponents. “It sends a strong signal to the president that the U.S. House of Representatives and the American people want change,” Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Mass., said shortly after the vote. Obama will begin drawing down some of the troops in July, with see WAR page 14

29 dead, 700 flee as drug gang battles hit west Mexico MORELIA, Mexico (AP) — A gunbattle between rival drug gangs in western Mexico left 29 bullet-ridden bodies in fake military uniforms heaped across a roadway and inside bullet-riddled vehicles in the Pacific coast state of Nayarit, the army said Thursday. The bodies, all male, were found Wednesday scattered around 14 shot-up pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles, two of which had bulletproofing. Television images of the scene near the town of Ruiz showed what appeared to have been a convoy of cartel vehicles that was ambushed or engaged by another column of gunmen on a stretch of rural highway.

Military-style boots, bulletproof vests, hand grenades and thousands of rounds of ammunition were found at the scene. Federal and state officials gave conflicting reports on the incident. Nayarit state police said officers responding to reports of a kidnapping found four wounded men at the scene of the shootout. One injured person died later, and three remain at the hospital, Nayarit officials said. The army said two suspects wounded in the battle were found at the scene. It was unclear if the two reported by the army were included in, or additional to, the state figure. The army said in a statement that around the same time Wednesday, soldiers

engaged in a shootout with armed suspects in a town about 35 miles (60 kilometers) north of Ruiz. Two suspects — a man and a woman — were killed in that confrontation. The military statement did not say whether the two shootouts were related. Nayarit’s attorney general Oscar Herrera told a radio station that preliminary reports indicated the two gangs involved in the fierce highway battle were the Sinaloa and the Zetas drug cartels. He said one of the two cartels kidnapped a man of the rival gang, which resulted in a car chase and subsequent gunfight. Nayarit and the nearby states of Michosee MEXICO page 8

BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — Sixteen years after the bull-necked military commander went on the run, a pale and shrunken Ratko Mladic was hauled into a courtroom Thursday to face charges of genocide in ordering torture, rape and the slaughter of 8,000 Muslim men and boys in the Bosnian town of Srebrenica in 1995. A Serbian government that has changed mightily since Mladic’s alleged atrocities

trumpeted his early morning arrest as a victory for a country worthy of EU membership and Western embrace. It banned all public gatherings and raised security levels to prevent ultra-nationalists from making good on pledges to pour into the streets in protest. Riot police broke up one small protest. Mladic was one of the world’s most wanted men, and faces charges of genocide

and war crimes at the U.N. war crimes tribunal in The Hague, Netherlands, where judge Fouad Riad said there was evidence of “unimaginable savagery.” “Thousands of men executed and buried in mass graves, hundreds of men buried alive, men and women mutilated and slaughtered, children killed before their mothers’ eyes, a grandfather forced to eat see SERBIA page 10

Trial of Gilford man charged with raping baby sitter in hands of jury CONCORD (AP) — A New Hampshire jury began deliberating Thursday whether a man forcibly raped and impregnated his children’s 15-year-old baby sitter in 1997. The case has drawn wide attention because of accusations that the pastor of the Baptist church both attended made the girl apologize to the congregation for getting pregnant out of wedlock, then helped move her to the home of a church family in Colorado and arranged to put the baby up for adoption. Concord police were forced to shelve their investigation into the rape allegation when they could not locate the girl for questioning. They recently found her through online posts and reopened the case. Ernest Willis, 52, of Gilford, has pleaded guilty to one count of statutory rape, acknowledging the girl was under the legal age of consent. Willis testified that the two had sex on only one occasion, it was consensual and that no force was used. Prosecutors say he raped the teen twice, and used force or ignored her pleas to stop on both occasions. The 12 jurors deliberated for just under an hour before court closed Thursday. They are scheduled to return to court Friday, after hearing four days of testimony. Both Willis and the teen attended Concord’s Trinity Baptist Church. The case was shelved until last year, when online tips helped authorities find her Arizona. A lawyer for Willis told jurors during final arguments Thursday that the accuser has changed her story since 1997 so she would “look more like a victim.” Defense attorney Donna Brown argued that Tina

Anderson never said in 1997 that Willis forced himself on her. Brown noted Anderson’s testimony that she had trouble remembering everything that happened 14 years ago. The Associated Press typically does not identify those who say they are victims of sexual assault, but Anderson asked that her name be used. The case has drawn national attention because of its circumstances. At the close of his testimony Thursday, Willis denied that he offered to take Anderson out of state and to pay for an abortion. He also said he did not offer to punch her hard in the stomach to induce a miscarriage. “I never said that in any way, shape or form,”

Willis testified. Merrimack Superior Court Judge Larry Smukler initially barred prosecutors from questioning Willis about the offers, saying they were irrelevant in light of Willis’s statutory rape plea. But Smukler ruled Thursday that Willis opened himself up to the questions by testifying Wednesday that he would never harm the girl. Prosecutor Wayne Coull argued that Anderson’s mother and Phelps sent her to live with strangers against her will and ignored her pleas to go live with her grandparents in Texas. He also noted that Phelps had her stand before the congregation and see JURY page 14

Census finds people in Northern NE are, on average, oldest in U.S. BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — An aging population, low birthrate and a small minority population are cited as some of the reasons Vermont is the second oldest state in the country. The latest statistics released by the U.S. Census Bureau found that Vermont has the second highest median age in the country at 41.5. Maine’s median age of 42.7 is the highest. New Hampshire has the fourth oldest population, with a median age of 41.1. Utah has the youngest at 29.2. The national median age is 37.2 An expert speaking about Vermont said it was also possible the state’s rural nature was not attractive for the modern young adult. “I’ve heard that there’s a generational issue: that

younger and newer generations tend to lean toward more urban environments than the Baby Boomers did, and Vermont doesn’t have many real urban areas to offer,” said Chip Sawyer, of the University of Vermont’s Center for Rural Studies. “Some people look at the state and see only Burlington as an urban area,” Sawyer said. “Some people look at the state and say there is no urban area.” Others say Vermont isn’t ready to deal with the challenges of an aging population. “We’re not really ready for this change, and we have to start strategically figuring out what it means to live in a society that’s growing older,” said AARP-Vermont Executive Director Greg Marchildon. “That also said, we’re not an organization that believes this is the end of the world.”

Privatization is road to hell Billionaires are different from you and me, for obvious reasons, including the fact that they buy much pricier baubles than we do. A sleek car costing $100,000? Why, for them, that’s just an easy impulse purchase. A few million bucks for a Matisse original? Go ahead — it’ll liven up the hallway. How about throwing a fat wad of cash at a university to get an academic chair named for you? Sure, it’s all part of the fun of living in BillionaireLand. Then there is the top crust of the upper-crust — such megalomaniacal megabillionaires as the Koch brothers. Using money from their industrial conglomerate, their foundation and their personal fortunes, these two far-out, laissez-faire extremists are literally buying public policy. Their purchases of everything from politicians to the tea party help them push the privatization of all things public and the elimination of pesky regulations and taxes that crimp their style. To advance their plutocratic privatization cause, brother Charles has even gone on a shopping spree for an invaluable bauble that most of us didn’t even know was for sale: academic freedom. And it’s surprisingly cheap! For only $1.5-million, Koch bought a big chunk of the economics department of Florida State University a couple of years ago. His donation gives him control of a new “academic” program at this public institution to indoctrinate students in his self-serving political theories. The billionaire gets to screen all applicants, veto any he deems insufficiently ideological, and sign off on all new hires. Also, the department head must submit yearly reports to Koch about the faculty’s speeches, publications and classes, and he evaluates the faculty based on “objectives” that he sets. Charles has made similar purchases of academic freedom at two other state universities, Clemson and West Virginia. Also, in a May 20 piece at Alternet.org, investigative researcher Lee Fang reveals that Koch has paid $419,000 to buy into Brown University’s “political theory project,” $3.6-million to establish Troy University’s “center for political economy” and $700,000 for a piece of Utah State’s Huntsman School of Business, which now has the “Charles G. Koch Professor of Political Economy.” Imagine the screams of outrage we’d hear from the Kochs if a labor union were doing this.

A recent article in The Onion, the satirical newsweekly, printed a downsize-big-government spoof that Charles and David would love to turn into reality. The parody disclosed that President Obama had come up with a surefire plan to balance the federal budget: Rob Fort Knox! “I’ve got the blueprints,” Obama is quoted as saying, “and I think I found a way out through a drainage pipe.” Unfortunately, with today’s political climate dominated by howling winds from the far-right fringe, there’s no longer any room in American culture for satire. Sure enough, some laissez-faire extremists at such Koch-funded corporate fronts as Cato Institute and Heritage Foundation are presently howling for the government to sell all of America’s gold stored in Fort Knox. Noting that we have billions worth of bullion in the vaults, a fellow from Heritage made this keen observation: “It’s just sort of sitting there.” Uh, yeah, professor. Like Mount Rushmore, the Grand Canyon, the Lincoln Memorial and other national assets — being there is the point. Yet these ivory tower ideologues are using the current brouhaha over the budget deficit as an opening to push their loopiest fantasies of selling off all of America’s public properties, facilities, systems and treasures to create a no-government, plutocratic paradise. Just spread our public goods out on tables, like a flea market from hell, and invite the global rich to buy it all. For example, a fellow from another Koch-funded front, the American Enterprise Institute, observes that the government could raise billions of dollars to retire that pesky deficit simply by selling our interstate highway system. Americans would then have to pay tolls forever to the corporate owners, but hey, he exclaims, remember that tolls “work for the River Styx, why not the Beltway?” What a perfect metaphor for privatization! In ancient mythology, dead souls must pay a toll to be ferried across the River Styx and enter the depths of hell. (Jim Hightower has been called American’s most popular populist. The radio commentator and former Texas Commissioner of Agriculture is author of seven books, including “There’s Nothing In the Middle of Road but Yellow Stripes and Dead Armadillos” and his new work, “Swim Against the Current: Even Dead Fish Can Go With The Flow”.)

LETTERS Risk taking? No, we’ve been reduced to waiting for entitlements To the editor, Did you ever notice that politicians talk about liberty often? If it is such a great thing, if it is such a wonderful thing to talk about. . . why are they so crappy at defending it? There are 27 amendments to the Constitution of the Unites States. Many of the amendments serve to protect us individually and as a nation. The first 10 are known as the Bill of Rights. That’s how strongly our predecessors we felt about the principles when they enacted them. The fourth amendment protects the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures. It says our security shall not be violated and no warrants shall be issued but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized. Those words seem pretty clear. Have you noticed how much have we allowed our fourth amendment rights to erode? How much have we encouraged our politicians to infringe on the fourth amendment rights we have been given and entrusted with? The war on drugs, the war on crime, and the war on terrorism are all declared, active and ongoing. They will all make us safer . . . right? They all have been used as the rationale to legislatively reduce our individual freedoms. It will make us safer you understand . . . but it also makes us less free have you noticed? The executive branch of government has accumulated immense authority through accretion. It has had foisted upon it the power to distort the process of determining guilt or innocence. Some of the damage becomes notice-

able through police cutting corners and stretching their prerogatives. There used to be a probable cause standard that meant something. When police wanted to stop and search you they needed probable cause as defined by the fourth amendment. Now the standard is something called reasonable suspicion . . . which means what exactly? Didn’t know that? Well neither did I. James Madison said, “All men having power ought to be distrusted to a certain degree.” He wasn’t wrong then and he isn’t wrong today. The question is how much freedom are you willing to give up in the name of safety? Are you safer now than you were 30 years ago? Are you more prosperous now than you were 30 years ago? Has the loss of freedom actually made us safer and more prosperous? Are we really striking a bargain that benefits us? There is a choice to be made between freedom and safety. Many feel safety is reason enough to allow freedom to erode. That choice is not unanimous. Freedom is more precious than safety. We must control our fear and understand that freedom has a price. Freedom is why our ancestors came here. It is part of what made America the land of opportunity. Without the freedom to try there can be no chance to fail and there will be no opportunity to succeed. The right to take risk and to gain from having done so used to be part of who we were. Is it still part of who we are or have we been reduced to waiting for our entitlements? Freedom does not depend on the virtue of our leaders. Freedom depends on our own protection of the constitution. Just my honest opinion. Marc Abear Meredith

I suggest men get parents permission before prostate treatment To the editor, We have this legislative attack right now on abortion services in New Hampshire. Women who are pregnant and under age 18 will be required to notify their parents of their upcoming medical care or go before a judge (as if their work load weren’t crazy right now without this proposed change) to set aside legal requirement for that sharing, a sharing which will happen without law if the relationship between parents and

daughter is good. I suggest that men undergoing prostrate cancer treatment (can happen at any age) also need legal supervision. Radiation or surgery for prostrate cancer can cause loss of erection and also infertility. If the purpose of having sex is to procreate, and that fetus should come to term, then prostrate treatment is a reproduction impediment and not to be taken lightly. It see next page

I call on MP to set no wake policy when lake exceeds 540-feet To the editor, Please find attached two photos. One of them is from last year, August 14, 2010, which shows my beach on Lake Winona. At the time this photo was taken, the water level of 539.5. The other photo shows this same piece of property last week. May 19, 2011. As you can see we no longer have a beach. Supposedly, this photo was taken at a time when the DES verified the water level to be 540.3, which is .3 above the new level that they have decided for Waukewan, which effects our property on Lake Winona. Due to the size of the watershed for our lakes and the dam’s inability to discharge, we will often be above the 540.0 level set in the DES final decision. This water level is unhealthful. We run the risk of washing phosphorous into Lake Winona, Snake River (a valuable wildlife habitat) and Lake Waukewan from backing up groundwater, eroding shoreline and impacting septic systems. Some who care to learn about ecology know that higher phosphorous can lead to toxic cyanobacteria blooms and other dangerous conditions negatively affecting water quality and lake health. There are studies underway at some prestigious organizations including researchers at Dartmouth, which are analyzing the suspected link between ALS and cyanobacteria. Cyanobacteria is very expensive if not impossible to treat in town water supplies. Shouldn’t we be concerned about this? Waukewan had cyanobacteria blooms three years in a row before the water level was dropped last year. Last year, there was no cyanobacteria bloom. Shouldn’t we do everything we can so we don’t introduce more phospho-

rus into our lakes? Lowering the lake level back to the 539.5 level greatly assisted the reduction of phosphorous in our lakes. At this high water level, wave action from power boats erodes our shorefront creating siltation in the lake which is further detriment to water quality and lake health and our property is subject to damage. Most lake shorefront lots are fairly small and therefore, septic systems are quite often situated in close proximity to the water. Water levels this high back up groundwater saturating functioning and legally built septic systems causing them not to function properly. The result is the leaching of phosphorus into the water, damaging water quality and making it unhealthy to swim or recreate on our lakes. We must all call for the water level to be lowered back again to the interim level that was set last year by the DES to 539.5, as it was last August. This is the healthiest and best environmental position for humans and wildlife. I beg residents and individuals who use these lakes (and depend upon Waukewan for drinking water) to speak out before it is too late. If not, we and our lakes and wildlife will pay a terrible price in order to accommodate the few who prefer higher water for their docks and recreational boating. I call upon the DES to reconsider their decision and to immediately re-set the water level to a healthier and more intelligent level. I call upon the N.H. Marine patrol to set a policy for “no wake” at both of these lakes when water levels exceed the 540 established by the DES. Linda Heminway New Hampton

from preceding page should not be, as it is now, a matter between a doctor and his patient.

not telling you that there is a lot higher percentage of low-wage jobs in these places, whereas N.H. has a much better middle class and a higher standard of living than most states. N.H. has one of the four lowest unemployment rates in the country, so clearly we have been doing something right for some time. Why change a good thing. Like I said before, this law is solely the brainchild of wealthy corporations and their rich lobbyists. “Right to Work” should read “Right to Work for Less with less Worker Rights”. It seems like wherever you go, the hard-fought for good living of the middle class is getting stripped, while the politicians keep trying to give more to the wealthy corporations and their Wall Street counterparts. I don’t get it. People complain that we have lost manufacturing jobs here, but it is the policies of this government and its politicians that caused this, not unions or the working class.

LETTERS Liberals can’t understand that radical Muslims hate Jews & Israel

to Deadline tickets purchase t. 1s ne Ju is will be No tickets door. e th at ld so

To the editor, Another stupid liberal idea is offered for the Middle East. I don’t know how many times now the lesson has been taught and liberals just don’t learn. It’s been said that doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results is the definition of crazy. This lends credence to those who say liberalism is a mental disorder. President Obama, last week, urged Israel to return to it’s pre-1967 borders. This is supposed to appease the Palestinians and open the path to a peaceful resolution of the troubles there. Really? Really, really, really? He has got to be kidding? Liberals are predisposed to appeasement I know, but after 60 odd years of broken promises and agreements by numerous Muslim leaders and radical groups why have not even liberals gotten it into their heads that it is not a give back of land that motivates them? It’s the complete destruction of Israel they say they want but is even that true? I doubt it. What we are dealing with there is that regions version of the KKK. Hammas, PLO, and all those other groups are religious hate organizations motivated by the same things that motivated the Klan. They even use the same tactics up to and including terrorism and murder. First off they hate Jews and even if Israel were to be destroyed they would still hate Jews. They would still want to kill

Jews and do so at every opportunity. Also they hate Christians, especially American Christians and only slightly less so American non-Christians because this country supports Israel. Even if we hadn’t supported Israel they would hate America because we are not Muslim, though we shouldn’t feel special because they also hate Hindus and Buddhists. In fact the only people they don’t hate are other Muslims except of course those Muslims who are not of the right sect or fundamental enough (read radical enough). Every American president since Eisenhower has struggled with and tried to resolve the Middle East situation to no avail. Why is because radical Muslims don’t want a peaceful resolution they have been taught from childhood to hate and murder. They want their 72 virgins. (Probably no one explained that a virgin is only virgin once. Apparently they haven’t figured out that after the 72 one they still have the rest of eternity to deal with). Dealing with the problems in the Middle East is something like dealing with diabetes. You can’t cure it but you can manage it. Our president would rather go with the appeasement policy which has failed nations and people all throughout history. When I see our liberal president taking that approach once again I can only shake my head as mutter, “stupid” under my breath. Steve Earle Hill

We need help broadening Winni Playhouse support to 500 families To the editor, Recently The Winnipesaukee Playhouse was named “Best Summer Theatre” in Yankee Magazine’s Travel Guide to New England issue. The magazine writes “if you like your theater up close and personal, this 84-seat venue stages professional plays in the summer and high-quality community theater in off months. You can’t beat the price.” As an organization we’re only 8-years-old, but we’ve also been recognized by N.H. Magazine and the New Hampshire Theatre Awards for the quality of our productions. We currently perform our shows in a small venue in Weirs Beach, and our summer season starts in less than a month. We have professional actors from NYC, Boston and beyond who will be here to entertain you, and we encourage you to get your subscription or reserve your tickets before dates start filling up! Two weeks ago the Lakes Region had the opportunity to see 15 one act plays produced by our community and teen theatre groups as the final production of our latest winter season. The plays were written by local teens and adults in a playwriting workshop we gave last fall. These aspiring writers had the amazing experience of seeing their plays onstage, directed and acted by local talent. Our future plans are to build a 180-250 seat theater on the former Annalee Doll site in Meredith, creating a one-of-a-kind performing arts campus. Consider joining us there on June 1 for a Business After Hours

perfect venue for theatre and arts education in the region. Already completed is an outdoor amphitheatre for staging plays or musical events and which will be used by our children’s program this summer. Our weekly children’s summer camps take place on the site and are currently enrolling. These camps are a wonderful opportunity for children to be introduced to theatre and the arts or to enhance their skills and cultivate their interest in performing arts. But to move our theatre to the campus we need help from the Lakes Region community. And so we’ve launched the “Drive for 500”, to raise awareness about the Capital Campaign and broaden the community’s support to 500 families! We have a donor who is matching pledges as they come in, up to one million dollars, doubling the value of your donation. When they offered this challenge the couple said that thanks to the Playhouse, “we don’t have to go to Boston for good theatre!” Check out our website to see all the programs we offer the community year round at WinniPlayhouse. org. Join us on June 1, or for one of our professional summer productions, subscribe to our summer season, take a tour of our campus, and make your gift to this year round, community based not-for-profit organization and become one of the “Fabulous 500” who helps make the Meredith Campus dream come true!

LETTERS Why is Medicare going broke? Let me tell story about a wheel chair To the editor, Medicare is going broke. Here is a example why. My dear friend John, who has lived with my wife and I, had a stroke 20 months ago. Last week he finally received his electric wheel chair from a local N.H. distributor. Since he is wheel chair bound this new unit gives him the opportunity to change his elevation at will, and gives him the mobility he needs.He is fully aware that with a full charge he can go 6 mph with a range of 25 miles.As soon as the weather breaks and the side walks are clear, he has informed me, that we are going on a TOUR. My friend John’s speech is hard to understand after the stroke, but trust me, he’s sharp as a whip. So when the chair was finally delivered last May 13, after a 9-month wait ,and countless face-to-face doctors visits the ( $21,000) LUNAR ROVER PERSONAL TRANSPORT UNIT paid for by Medicare was now in the hands of my friend, who now owns the chair. THIS is no more then a wheel chair with a marine battery under it. He states it helps him get around but there is no way its worth $21K, it cost more than a car. No wonder Medicare and Medicaid

are broke he yells at me in slurred speech. He continues his rant, your always writing letters to the editor, why don’t you do some research and find out why this wheel chair cost the taxpayers $21K. Okay my grumpy old 69-year-old friend here is the skinning on your motorized wheel chair. As you know on May 13 ( Rehabilitation Equipment Association of Manchester) came to our residence and after an hour of demonstration left you a Quantum 600 MWC that you now own, price to taxpayers $22,368.00. After further research I found out that Medicare and Medicade use many distributors for MWC, the norm is they pay 60 to 70-percent of said price quoted. That leaves the cost of my friends MWC between $16 and $17K. I know the old goat would still find my research unacceptable so I kept digging. I hate to be wrong, but you can go online and one buy the same Quantum 2010 MWC with tilt for 4 grand, plus a $418 shipping fee. All this research has given me a headache. I need a couple of aspirins but at 4 bucks a pill I cant afford it. Maybe I can if OBAMACARE kicks in. Thomas Sellew Lochmere

Wide Open Saloon stakeholders tell judge fireravaged building presents no immediate danger By Gail OBer

LACONIA — City Code Enforcement Officer Bill Stewart testified in Laconia District Court yesterday that the Weirs Beach landmark restaurant gutted by fire last September posed a danger of collapse and should be demolished. Judge Jim Carroll took the matter under advisement and there was no immediate word as to when he would render a decision. Stewart said his external investigation coupled with 30 years of experience in the building trades and in code enforcement indicate the charred Wide Open Saloon is listing toward the railroad tracks. “I’m surprised it didn’t collapse this winter,” he said. Stewart spent about 20 minutes answering questions posed by both the City of Laconia’s lawyer Walter Mitchell and owner building Brandi Baldi’s lawyer Freidrich Moeckel. Last month the Laconia City Council unanimously passed an order demanding Baldi raze the building and remove the debris from the property. It was the city’s desire the building be removed by the upcoming annual Motorcycle Week but, with Baldi’s challenge of the city’s order, it seems unlikely it will happen before the annual rally begins on June 11. Stewart also said in his opinion it would not be financially feasible to rebuild atop the first floor that was not damaged by the fire but suffered extreme water damage during the fire and subsequent elemental damage by laying exposed all winter. When Mitchell asked him if the building was a danger to public safety, Stewart responded in the affirmative and added the upcoming Bike Week

posed particular safety issues. “Have you ever seen a biker burn down a building?” Moeckel asked. After Stewart said “no” Judge Carroll reminded everyone that the applicable statute refers to safety and hazardous conditions only, not bikers. “My primary concern is it’s unsafe, a public hazard and an attractive nuisance,” Stewart said. “But you can’t be certain (of an imminent collapse)” Moeckel said. “Not absolutely but I can’t say it won’t.” replied Stewart. Baldi testified briefly that she had enclosed the entire site with a six-foot fence and that she would be willing to provide security during Bike Week. While the burned out building may be an eyesore, the specific case before Carroll is whether or not the building poses an immediate threat to the general public and if tearing it down will mitigate that threat. Not only Baldi has challenged the city’s demolition order. A mortgage on the property is held jointly by Alfred Mitchell and Andre Skonieczny, who also filed a response to the order saying they had not had ample opportunity to complete a foreclosure against Baldi and a demolition order was premature. Should Carroll order the demolition, more than likely the city would pay for it and place a lien on the property for the expenses. According to the Laconia Planning Department, after the building is demolished the owners have one year to rebuild on the same footprint. After one year, the site will be classified as a nonconforming lot and any building proposal would need to go through the city planning and zoning process.

MEXICO from page 2 acan and Zacatecas have become battlegrounds for drug cartels fighting for control of the area. The Sinaloa cartel, Mexico’s most powerful, has long been active in Nayarit, which borders its home base in Sinaloa state, but the gang has recently been challenged by the Zetas and by remnants of the Beltran Leyva cartel. In nearby Michoacan state, officials said 500 marines and soldiers have been deployed to an area where at least 1,200 villagers fled their homes during three days of clashes between rival drug traffickers, which appeared to be unrelated to the

Nayarit conflict. The government gave the families refuge at five shelters in two nearby towns. The arrival of security forces Wednesday appeared to have soothed fears and hundreds of villagers decided to go back home by Thursday. Officials said only 300 people remained at the five shelters Thursday evening. It is at least the second time a large number of rural residents have been displaced by drug violence in Mexico. In November, about 400 people in the northern border town of Ciudad Mier took refuge in the neighboring city of Ciudad Aleman following cartel gunbattles. That shelter has since see next page

Vet Home will mark Memorial Day on Tuesday

TILTON — Memorial Day Services will be held at the New Hampshire Veterans Home (NHVH) in Tilton on Tuesday, May 31 at 11 a.m. in the Veterans Home “Town Hall.” Residents of the home, staff, family members, and friends are invited. Memorial Day is especially meaningful to the residents and staff of the New Hampshire Veterans Home because it commemorates the sacrifice of U.S. soldiers who died while in the military service. First enacted to honor Union and Confederate soldiers following the American Civil War, Memorial Day was extended after World War I to honor Americans who have died in all wars.

Major General William N. Reddel, III, Adjutant General of New Hampshire, will give the Memorial Day address. General Reddel serves as Military Chief of Staff to the governor and is the executive head of the Adjutant General’s Department. As Adjutant General, he oversees all aspects of the Adjutant General’s Department, which includes Army and Air National Guard and the New Hampshire Veteran’s Cemetery. In addition, the program will include a welcome from Commandant Barry Conway, an invocation and a benediction, Pledge of Allegiance by a member of the NHVH Resident Counsee next page

Tire marks show where a car driven by a Franklin man crossed Mile Hill Road in Laconia and crashed into a pole and a flower display. The car flipped a number of times and landed next to the house at 260 Mile Hill Road. The driver, identified by police as Jamison Kaplan was killed. Two others were taken to LRGH by ambulance with non-life threatening injuries. (Laconia Daily Sun/Gail Beane)

CRASH from page one Tire marks on the roadway show the car, a white Honda Civic, veered off to the right side of the road and hit a gulley or culvert. It appeared Kaplan corrected the car back on to the road but lost control and shot across the road, landing against Tarte’s home on the left side of Mile Hill. Tarte pointed out where the car struck a piece of telephone pole that held a mailbox at the end of his driveway, crushed a whiskey barrel planter and rolled until it landed next to his front porch. Pieces of red plastic tail light lenses still lay in Tarte’s driveway but he said he didn’t want to touch or clean anything until he was sure the police and the Belknap County Accident

Reconstruction Team were finished with their investigation. Tarte said the car rolled over a few times and that he saw a number of beer cans and half-gallon bottles strewn about his driveway. He said police took them as evidence. Tarte said there has been a problem with speeding on Mile Hill Road for as long as he can remember but in the recent years it has gotten much worse. He said most of the speeding issues are from people heading down the hill toward Academy Street but there are cases, like yesterday morning’s crash, that involve speeding up the hill. Clarke said police were still investigating the cause of the crash and are looking into whether or not drugs or alcohol were involved.

SERBIA from page 2 the liver of his own grandson,” Riad said during Mladic’s 1995 indictment in absentia. Mladic, 69, appeared frail and walked very slowly Thursday evening as he went into a closed-door extradition hearing. He wore a navy-blue jacket and a baseball hat with gray hair sticking out the sides, and carried what appeared to be a towel in his left hand. He could be heard on state TV saying “good day” to someone in the court, and a guard told him, “Let’s go, general.” Mladic’s lawyer said the judge cut short the questioning because the suspect’s “poor physical state” left him unable to communicate. “He is aware that he is under arrest, he knows where he is, and he said he does not recognize The Hague tribunal,” said attorney Milos Saljic, adding that Mladic needs medical care and “should not be moved in such a state.” Belgrade B-92 radio said one of Mladic’s arms was paralyzed — probably the result of a stroke. Deputy war crimes prosecutor Bruno Vekaric said that Mladic is taking a lot of medicine, but “responds

very rationally to everything that is going on.” Extradition proceedings could take a week or more before Mladic’s expected transfer to The Hague, where he faces life imprisonment. The U.N. court has no death penalty. Only one of 161 people sought by the tribunal remains at large — Goran Hadzic, a former leader of Serbs in Croatia. International law experts hope the arrest will send a message to figures like Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi that no leader charged with a war crime can expect to escape justice forever. “Impunity has really been withdrawn from war criminals,” said Richard Goldstone, the prosecutor in the 1995 indictment. “It’s a very different world, and the prospects of them standing trial one day have been heightened considerably.” The arrest also releases Serbia from widespread suspicion that it was protecting Mladic. U.N. war-crimes prosecutor Serge Brammertz was due early next month to give the United Nations a report critical of Serbia’s lack of cooperation with the hunt for Mladic and other fugitives. The Netherlands had used such reports to justify blocking Serbia’s efforts to join the EU, and the arrest could help Serbia shed its image as a pariah state that sheltered the men responsible for the worst atrocities of

WOBURN, Mass. (AP) — The brother of Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan was sentenced Thursday to the maximum 2½ years in jail despite tearful pleas from the skater and her family to spare him any more time behind bars. Mark Kerrigan, 46, was convicted Wednesday of assault and battery, but acquitted of involuntary manslaughter in the 2010 death of Nancy and Mark’s 70-year-old father, Daniel Kerrigan, at the family’s home in Stoneham, just north of Boston. Nancy Kerrigan broke down and cried as she asked the judge to send her brother home instead of back to jail. “Any sentence for Mark would only serve to extend an unnecessary situation that already seems as if it has been never-ending,” she said. “We ask that you please ... send him home with us today so that he can rejoin our family,” she said. Mark Kerrigan also spoke to the judge before sentencing. “Your honor, I’d just like to say I loved my father and I miss him very much and I’d like the opportunity to return home with my family so we can finish see next page

Fish & Games says it has killed bear that charged Center Harbor woman on deck at her house CENTER HARBOR — The black bear believed to have injured a local woman on her home deck this week has been killed, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department reported today. The bear was a large adult male that exhibited extremely aggressive behavior. It was shot by a N.H. Fish and Game Conservation Officer Wednesday night at approximately 9 p.m., near the location of several recent incidents involving bears, people and pets. The bear was located and shot in the same neighborhood in which 55-year-old Jacqueline Berghorn

was injured by a black bear outside her home, receiving non-life-threatening injuries, on Sunday, May 22. “This is something that we as wildlife protectors do not relish. Ultimately, it came down to protecting the public,” said Col. Martin Garabedian, Chief of N.H. Fish and Game Law Enforcement. “Our Department is being put into a situation that is totally preventable. We have no doubt that this bear became a problem because it became habituated to finding food at human dwellings and had

completely lost its fear of people.” Garabedian emphasized that everyone in New Hampshire needs to understand and follow the basics of avoiding bear-human conflicts: never intentionally feed bears; take down your birdfeeders from April to December; keep your grill clean; and remove bear attractants such as unsecured trash and dog food from your yard. Previous residents of the neighborhood where the aggressive bear was killed had a history of feeding bears, according to authorities.

Senate fails to come to rescue of N.H. hospitals BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

CONCORD — In putting the finishing touches to its budget yesterday the Senate Finance Committee took a $250-million bite out of the state’s 26 hospitals, which Henry Lipman, senior vice-president and chief financial officer of LRGHealthcare of Laconia, said will hinder the provision of essential medical services and increase the cost of private health insurance. Like the House, the committee withheld about $129-million in general funds, forgoing an equal amount in federal matching funds, in Medicaid payments for the 13 largest hospitals, including Lakes Region General Hospital, of which the greatest share is $115-million in payments for uncompensated care to uninsured and indigent patients. Likewise, the committee would continue to levy the Medicaid Enhancement Tax (MET) on hospitals at a rate of 5.5-percent of net revenues, which is projected to yield $200-million in fiscal year 2012. Since 1991, when the MET was first introduced, the proceeds were returned to the hospitals after being used to leverage federal funds, which were

transferred to the general fund. However, the Senate Finance Committee would transfer $100-million of the revenue from the MET to the general fund and use $75-million of the balance, in place of money from the general fund, to make Medicaid payments to health care providers. The remaining $25-million, matched by federal funds, would be applied to the smaller, rural, socalled critical access hospitals like Franklin Regional Hospital and Speare Memorial Hospital. In other words, the Senate proposes to apply revenue from taxing hospitals rather than general funds to provide reduced payments for uncompensated care to hospitals. “The state has walked away from its obligation to fund the Medicaid program,” said Steve Ahnen, president of the New Hampshire Hospital Association. He projected that hospitals will post losses of $127-million this year and $132-million next. Ahnen said that apart from the reduction in Medicaid funding, he anticipates hospitals will come under additional financial pressure with the introduction of Medicaid managed care, which has been endorsed by Governor John Lynch as well as the see next page from preceding page

grieving over my father’s loss, so I can be there to help my mother,” he said. Brenda Kerrigan, Nancy and Mark’s mother, is legally blind. But prosecutor Elizabeth Keeley urged the judge to impose the maximum sentence, citing Mark Kerrigan’s long criminal record, including multiple convictions for drunken driving. She said that less than two months before he had an altercation with his father, Kerrigan had been released from jail after serving a 4-year sentence for various crimes, including violating a restraining order taken out by his former wife. Keeley told the judge that Kerrigan, despite being given numerous chances while in jail and on probation, still has not learned how to control his temper and his drinking. She said the Kerrigan’s family support for him has not helped. “Regrettably, they, in supporting him, are not helping him,” she said. “And the days of familial violence being a private matter are long over.” Six months of his sentence will be suspended. His lawyer said he will receive credit for the four months he has spent in jail and will become eligible for parole after serving about eight months of his sentence. Kerrigan was jailed in February after a judge found he violated the no-alcohol condition of his release on bail. Prosecutors alleged that Mark Kerrigan caused his father’s death while in a drunken rage during an altercation on Jan. 24, 2010. They said Mark Kerrigan put his hands around Daniel Kerrigan’s neck with such force that he broke cartilage in his father’s larynx and triggered his heart failure.

Red Sox beat Tigers 14-1; 11th win in 13 games DETROIT (AP) — The Boston Red Sox roughed up one of baseball’s best pitchers this season. Then, Boston refused to take it easy on Detroit’s relievers. Jacoby Ellsbury hit a three-run homer off Max Scherzer in a five-run second inning, and hot-hitting Boston went on to rout the Tigers 14-1 in an eightinning, rain-shortened game Thursday. “We put up a crooked number early and then we kept at them,” Boston manager Terry Francona said. “That’s a nice formula for winning. When you keep them off the scoreboard, that makes for a good day.” The Red Sox, who beat Cleveland 14-2 on Wednesday, scored at least 14 runs in back-to-back games for the first time since 1998. “I’m glad we had two good days in a row,” Francona said. “It’s nice to have games like that every once in a while.” Boston has won 11 of 13 and trail the AL Eastleading New York Yankees by percentage points, but that fact doesn’t do much for Francona yet. “It’s a little early,” he said. Since the Red Sox got off to an 0-6 start — their worst since 1945 — they’ve won 28 of 44 games and lead the majors with a 17-7 record this month. “You can’t judge a team in a couple weeks,” Boston catcher Jason Varitek said. Or, a player. Carl Crawford is making his slow start this season a distant memory. Crawford’s two-run triple gave the Red Sox a seven-run lead, chasing Scherzer, and he had another run-scoring triple later in the game while becoming the first Boston player with four hits in consecutive games since Dustin Pedroia in 2008. Crawford had two triples in a game for the eighth

time in his career and the first time in three years. “It’s fun to watch him run,” Varitek said. Crawford’s second triple made it 9-1 in the seventh inning. The Red Sox didn’t let up, scoring five runs in the eighth. Boston became the first team to score at least 14 runs three times in a seven-day span since Atlanta did it in 2006, and the first to score 14 in back-to-back games since Texas in 2008, according to STATS, LLC. Alfredo Aceves (2-0) allowed a run on five hits and struck out six over six innings. Aceves made his second start with Boston and the seventh of his career. “He took some steps in the learning process,” Varitek said. Aceves has won his last 12 decisions, dating to 2009 when he was a Yankees reliever, for baseball’s longest wining streak since Cliff Lee won the same number of consecutive decisions with Cleveland three years ago. Aceves’ previous 11 wins were as a reliever. With an inning left to play, the umpires decided to start a rain delay more than an hour after it started to rain. Almost an hour later, the game was called. Detroit had won three straight and poor pitching ruined the streak. Scherzer (6-2) gave up a season-high seven runs on seven hits and two walks in two-plus innings, lasting fewer than five for the first time this year. He has lost consecutive starts after winning his first six decisions.

House and Senate. He said that only if the state ends the next biennium with a surplus could hospitals expect to receive additional funding. Lipman estimated that LRGHealthcare, which closed its last financial year with a $2.3-million operating loss, would lose between $3-million and $4-million in operating revenue. He anticipated that the loss would stall the corporation’s return to the black as well as restrict its operational flexibility. “This will put severe pressure on all aspects of our operations,” Lipman said, “including the range of our services and the size of our payroll.” Lipman noted that while the impact of the House budget was born by the 13 largest hospitals, the Senate proposal would also place the smaller, rural hospitals at risk. “This takes the problem beyond Laconia to Plymouth, Wolfeboro and Conway, “ he said. Finally, Lipman expected that the reduction in revenues would lead hospitals to shift a greater share of their costs to private insurers, adding to to the already high and rising cost of health insurance.

Correction: Volvo will be raffle prize, not auctioned off A story about an automobile that has been donated by Lovering Volvo to the Boys & Girls Club of the Lakes Region as a raffle prize that appeared in our Thursday, May 26 edition left confusion as to the exact nature of the fundraising event built around it. The 2012 Volvo S60 will not be auctioned off, as was stated in one part of the story. Instead, a fully paid 3-year

lease of the vehicle, which includes all maintenance and mechanical repairs, is a raffle prize. Tickets are $10 each (three for $25 and seven for $50) and can be purchased over the weekend at Patrick’s Pub and Eatery in Gilford, where the car will be on display. The following weekend, the Volvo will be on display at the 99 Restaurant in Tilton.

Clarification: Bench dedication at Belmont’s Penstock Park A story about Memorial Day activities planned in the Town of Belmont that appeared in our Tuesday, May 24 edition was unclear about the location of ceremony to dedicate at granite bench in memory of Fred Livingston, past assistant chaplin of American

Legion Post #58. The ceremony will take place immediately following the traditional ceremony at the Veterans Monument across from St. Joseph Church and will take place in nearby Penstock Park.

JURY from page 3 apologize for getting pregnant out of wedlock. “What happened to Tina at the hands of those people in her life is why she kept that secret for so long,” Coull said. “She got shamed, shunned silenced and sent away.” Brown argued that was all the more reason for Anderson to shift the blame to Willis by saying her forcibly raped her and offered to help abort the fetus. “It happened one time and there was no force — that’s what Tina said

in 1997,” Brown said. Coull reminded jurors that Anderson did nothing to re-open the investigation. In 2010, he said, she was married with three children, had a master’s degree and was teaching music at a Baptist college in Arizona. “She doesn’t have to go back down this road,” Coull said. Brown said that “convicting Ernie Willis of something he didn’t do because of sympathy to Tina will add one more wrong to a case that has too many wrongs already.”

WAR from page 2 all combat forces due out by 2014. McGovern and others fear that the initial reduction will be a token cut of some 5,000, numbers they argue fail to reflect that Osama bin Laden is gone and the United States can’t afford spending $10 billion a month on the war. An Associated Press-GfK poll earlier this month found 59 percent oppose the war and 37 percent favor it, with significant support for Obama’s plan to start removing troops this summer. “Five thousand on July 1 and nothing else, that won’t fly,” said Rep. John Garamendi, D-Calif. “That will create a great deal of anger.” Twenty-six Republicans joined 178 Democrats in backing the Afghanistan measure. Eight Democrats and 207 Republicans opposed it. In the Democratic-controlled House last July, a similar measure got 162 votes. The tally on Thursday reflected the increasing exasperation in Congress with the costly war, even among the typically more hawkish Republicans. But among the measure’s foes, Rep. Mike Coffman, R-Colo., said the accelerated timetable “would pull the rug out of the entire strategy,” and Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, said “the sacrifice

of blood and treasure will be thrown away for considerable impatience.” The divisive issue was part of three days of debate on a broad, $690 billion defense bill that would provide a 1.6 percent increase in military pay, fund an array of aircraft, ships and submarines and increase health care fees slightly for working-age military retirees. The bill meets the Pentagon’s request for $119 billion to fight wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The House passed the military blueprint for the budget year beginning Oct. 1 on a vote of 322-96. In another sign of exasperation with war, the House overwhelmingly backed a measure barring any taxpayer dollars for U.S. ground forces or private security contractors in Libya with the exception of those involved in rescue missions of U.S. service members. The vote was 416-5. Obama angered lawmakers with the amount of consultation with Congress before launching air strikes against Libya in March. Several members also have complained that Obama violated the 1972 War Powers Resolution, failing to seek congressional authorization for the U.S. military role in Libya. Obama recently said the U.S.


Hooksett toll plaza crash victim was college student from Congo

HOOKSETT (AP) — The motorist killed in a fiery crash at a toll plaza over the weekend in New Hampshire has been identified as a student from the African nation of Congo.A Manchester funeral home identified the victim as 23-year-old Steve Nkuli Ituome (eh-TOO’me), who was attending school in New Hampshire. Funeral director Buddy Phaneuf (Fuh-NEFF’) says Ituome’s uncle, a Roman Catholic cardinal, presided over a funeral Mass on Wednesday.

New Hampshire state police are investigating the high-speed crash late Saturday at the Hooksett Tolls. Witnesses report that the vehicle, borrowed from another college student, was traveling more than 100 mph. Ituome was the nephew of Cardinal Laurent Monsengwo Pasinya, the archbishop of Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Ituome’s remains will be shipped back to the Congo for burial.

Wisconsin judge voids controversial labor union law on right-to-know law grounds

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The fight over stripping collective bargaining rights from Wisconsin’s public workers will move into the state Supreme Court, and possibly back into the Legislature, after a judge ruled Thursday to strike down the law that passed despite massive protests that paralyzed the Capitol. Republican backers of Gov. Scott Walker’s proposal said they were confident the state Supreme Court would overturn the judge’s ruling that the law is void because lawmakers broke open meetings statutes during the approval process. She had temporarily blocked the law shortly after it passed in March. The Supreme Court was scheduled to hear arguments in the case on June 6. Republicans who control the Legislature also could pass the measure a second time to avoid the open meeting violations. Still, Democrats and union leaders who helped organize protests against the measure that grew to as large as 85,000 people praised the victory, even if it could be fleeting. “It tells legislators ‘You can’t be arrogant,’” said Marty Beil, executive director of the state’s largest public employee union. “You have to do it in the light of day. You can’t take stuff

away from people in a backroom deal.” Mary Bell, president of the state’s largest teachers’ union, said she hoped the judge’s ruling would lead to lawmakers reconsidering passing the law again. “It is not in the best interest of students, schools or Wisconsin’s future to take the voices of educators out of our classrooms,” Bell said in a statement. “We’ve seen how this issue has polarized our state.” The last time the Legislature took up the issue, tens of thousands of protesters, including many teachers, descended on Madison in a futile attempt to persuade lawmakers to reject the proposal. The protests lasted for weeks and made Wisconsin the center of a national debate on union rights. Meanwhile, all 14 Democratic senators fled to Illinois to prevent a 20-member quorum to pass the bill. Senate Republicans eventually called a special committee meeting with roughly two hours’ notice so it could amend the bill to take out spending items to avoid the quorum requirement. Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi noted in her ruling Thursday that the open meetings law typically calls for 24-hours’ notice of meetings, or, in cases with just cause, two hours. Sumi said nothing justified such short notice and declared the law void.

Phase II of Church Landing expansion receives Planning Board approval

MEREDITH — The Inns & Spa at Mill Falls has received planning board approval to begin construction on Phase II of its Church Landing expansion to add 15 deluxe lake view rooms and suites in two new buildings and one renovated cottage on site. The two new buildings — The Birch Lodge and The Boathouse Lodge — will be constructed on either side of the existing Lake Shore Cottage, which resides at the South end of Church Landing. The new additions will be connected to the existing Church Landing by a semi-covered cedar walkway. Construction will begin in October 2011. The rooms will all offer lake views, balconies, and screened porches. In addition, each room will have a fieldstone fireplace, indoor whirlpool bath, wet bar, double glass and tile shower, and a bathroom LCD TV. “We are very excited to get the go ahead from the planning board to begin work on this part of our expansion project,” said Rusty McLear, president and CEO of The Inns & Spa at Mill Falls. “Church Landing at Mill Falls has been exceptionally well received by the public. These

upgrades and additions will not only enhance our image but more importantly our guests’ experience.” The expansion will also offer a new lobby and game area; a second indoor/ outdoor infinity pool with two jacuzzis; an outdoor fire-pit; a large sundeck with food and beverage service; a semi-covered cedar walkway connecting all buildings; new boat docks; 186 feet of additional lake frontage; and a new valet parking lot. “It is thrilling for our vast number of repeat guests to know that each time they visit, we are adding more facilities and more options to consider, while keeping our focus on our core mission — unforgettable customer service,” said Gail Batstone, general manager of The Inns & Spa at Mill Falls. “We often hear the comment, ‘So, what are you adding this year?’” Samyn & D’Elia Architects of Ashland are heading up the design, and CCI Construction is handling the general contracting duties. Pat Sava Designs will be coordinating the interior, and the rooms will be decorated with dark wood in the Adirondack style. The new buildings are scheduled to open in May of 2012.

headliner concerts to the new state-of-the-art Kingswood Arts Center recently built by the Governor Wentworth School District in Wolfeboro. The move coincides with a shift in the Festival’s business model and a new strategic plan that positions the organization to meet the challenges of the economy and national decline in audience numbers at performances. This combination of forward thinking strategies has already resulted in an increased level of support that enables the Festival to present a strong line-up of first-class concerts for its inaugural season at Kingswood Arts Center. The new Center provides more comfort to both performers and patrons with its air conditioning, spacious seating and convenient parking. Great Waters Music Festival will also be collaborating with the Wolfeboro Friends of Music on three Sunday Afternoon Piano Concerts that will introduce their Steinway grand piano into the community and to its new home at the Kingswood Arts

Center. The first concert of the season will feature a diverse program of Brazilian classical, jazz, ballads, and improv played by local pianists as well as touring artist Arlene Kies. Patrons will be welcome to come and go throughout the afternoon and will also have the opportunity to interact with the pianists. The second piano concert, at 2 p.m. on June 26, will be performed by Sally Pinkas, artist in residence at Dartmouth College playing Mozart, Ravel and Brahms. The final piano concert, at 2 p.m. on July 17, will be a collaboration with the Heifetz International Music Institute, whose gifted young students and piano faculty will present a concert of solo piano works. The Great Waters Music Festival will kick off July 8 with An Evening with Rockapella. On July 15, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy will present How Big Can You Get – 100 Years of Cab Calloway. Back by popular demand, the USAF Liberty Jazz Band will give a free community concert on August 5. Also returning, on August 12, will be the Capitol Steps presenting song parodies and skits conveying a special brand of satirical humor. Capping off the season on August 19 will be award-winning composer Neil Berg’s 101 Years of Broadway featuring an all-star New York cast and band. Further information and tickets for all these events are available at the Great Waters Music Festival’s new office location from 9 a.m. — 5 p.m. Mondays — Fridays, by calling 5697710, or visiting www. greatwaters.org.

NH Humane Society to decrease service hours in Laconia effective June 1

LACONIA — The NH Humane Society will decrease the number of days the organization will be open effective June 1. According to Executive Director Mary Di Maria, “NH Humane Society is open for business 34 hours per week to the general public, but contracting Police Departments have access 24 hours a day. Stepping back general service from five to four days weekly will allow us to remain a strong community resource for so many during these economic hard times.” The local animal welfare agency has long been the final port of call for pet owners near and far when hard decisions must be made. “Surrendering the family pet in response to such varying factors as job loss, foreclosure, financial hardship, and relocation is never easy,” said shelter spokesperson Marylee Gorham. “We will always be a resource for those in distress.” The Society does not euthanize any adoptable animal for time or space constraints, rather the lost, aban-

doned, neglected, and unwanted creatures of the Lakes Region are provided all medical, behavioral, and pastoral care necessary until adoption day. “We have many additional programs in place geared towards community including relief for starving, privately owned animals via the Pet Food Pantry, twice monthly low cost Spay Neuter Clinics, education programs to elementary school children, college internships, canine training classes, and Pet Therapy to area nursing homes,” added Gorham. “We hope to continue these services well into the future, while at the same time we must continue to be a viable entity for the region we serve.” NH Humane Society is a private stand-alone animal welfare agency relying entirely upon the support of donors both individual and business to meet the needs of the animals the agency is pledged to serve. No Federal, State or national funding is provided. For more information about the Society, visit www.nhhumane.org.

All Guided Discoveries are designed to allow children to learn about and explore the natural world using handson activities and play. A popular session, Wild Art, has been brought back again this summer for two sessions. Educators from the Currier Museum Art Center and the Science Center will help children explore two and three dimensional media by discovering the rich variety of plant and animal life at the Science Center. The Science Center is also pleased to bring Grammy Award-nominated musician and storyteller Steve

Schuch for Earth Songs August 1 — 5. Schuch fuses Celtic/Folk roots with classical and contemporary influences. The Earth Songs Guided Discovery will culminate in a special concert, “Songs & Tales of the Earth,” on Friday, August 5. “We are so pleased to be able to offer children such a wide variety of weeklong summer programs,” said Amy Yeakel, Education Program director at Squam Lakes Natural Science Center. “Our Guided Discovery educators bring so many different talents and experiences for children of all ages.” For more details about Summer 2011 Guided Discoveries, including fees and registration, visit www.nhnature.org or call 968-7194.

Pooch Café LOLA

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You have the key to making money. Instead of merely learning what to do or going through the motions that someone has laid out for you, you take the exact actions that will produce value for others. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There will be people around you who know more and have more success in a certain area. You have more knowledge and expertise in an entirely different realm. So think of yourself as an equal. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your personal power increases at your will. “Keep your chin up” is not merely a metaphor; it’s a physical suggestion that will change the way people treat you today. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your first impulse is usually a generous one, but be careful today not to over-give. You could create an unhelpful dependency. Opt to teach others what you know instead of doing it for them. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A relationship may feel stagnant, but that’s about to change as you ask yourself a magic question: “How can I truly make this person’s life better?” Your musings will produce solutions. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 27). You are so attractive, in part because you seize opportunities to improve yourself and radiate happiness. Your community involvement increases in the months to come. You have something to sell, and you’ll bring in more than anticipated for it. A spiritual calling will lead to adventure. August and September are romantic. Pisces and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 10, 2, 38 and 4.

by Richard Thompson

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You have strong feelings for someone, though you don’t have them all the time -- only when you let yourself. Today, when you are near this person, everything seems luminous. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You want to be appreciated for the full range of who you are. But there’s so much to you that some people won’t be able to understand. So you’ll cultivate friendships with many different people. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It seems that everyone around you wants to be bigger than life and famous for it. You don’t. You are truly wise, realizing that the ordinary life-sized life is the perfect size to live in an extraordinarily beautiful way. CANCER (June 22-July 22). There are big events on the horizon. The special dates are to be celebrated in particular ways, and it will all require a great deal of organization on your behalf. Make preparations. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You arrived at this place because you dreamed about it. Some of the dreams were what you wanted, and some were what you didn’t want. The two kinds have collided to create this current reality. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You don’t have to sample everything to know what you like and don’t like. You’re intuitive, and you get a sense about things before you dive in completely. So don’t let anyone pressure you. Believe in your subconscious leanings. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll meet someone who is aligned with your values and principles -- a new and true friend. Not every true friend is this much like you. There are people you love with whom you have far less in common.

The British Royal Navy sank the German battleship Bismarck off France, with a loss of some 2,000 lives, three days after the Bismarck sank the HMS Hood. On this date: In 1861, Chief Justice Roger Taney, sitting as a federal circuit court judge in Baltimore, ruled that President Abraham Lincoln lacked the authority to suspend the writ of habeas corpus (Lincoln disregarded the ruling). In 1896, 255 people were killed when a tornado struck St. Louis, Mo., and East St. Louis, Ill. In 1935, the Supreme Court struck down the National Industrial Recovery Act. In 1936, the Cunard liner RMS Queen Mary left England on its maiden voyage to New York. In 1937, the newly completed Golden Gate Bridge connecting San Francisco and Marin County, Calif., was opened to pedestrian traffic (vehicular traffic began crossing the bridge the next day). In 1985, in Beijing, representatives of Britain and China exchanged instruments of ratification on the pact returning Hong Kong to the Chinese in 1997. In 1993, five people were killed in a bombing at the Uffizi (oo-FEET’-zee) museum of art in Florence, Italy. One year ago: On the defensive more than five weeks into the nation’s worst-ever oil spill, President Barack Obama insisted his administration, not oil giant BP, was calling the shots in the still-unsuccessful response. Today’s Birthdays: Dolores Hope (widow of Bob Hope) is 102. Actor Christopher Lee is 89. Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger is 88. Actress Lee Meriwether is 76. Musician Ramsey Lewis is 76.

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Dear Annie: I am in an awkward social situation. My 3-year-old daughter and I were invited to join a group of moms and children at a local park. At first, it was great, but now the other mothers have decided they don’t like me. They don’t say it to my face, and they aren’t obviously rude, but they mostly ignore me when I speak, and if they do respond, their answers are curt. I have tried being extra nice, but I am still treated like an outcast. My daughter loves playing with the children in this group, and since she doesn’t get a lot of social interaction, I do not want to take these friendships away from her. I have considered sitting at a different table, but I’m afraid the other mothers will think me rude and will then forbid their children from playing with mine or treat my daughter unfairly. I know if I tell them I feel I’m being treated poorly, they will deny it. I am not the first person they have kicked out of the group. What do I do? -- Socially Inept Dear Inept: That crowd sounds like high-school mean girls who never outgrew their cliquishness. We strongly recommend you find a substitute playgroup that gets together at another time or in a different location. Your daughter is young enough to get over the loss of these friendships if you don’t make a big deal out of it, and she will make new friends. Meanwhile, continue to be nice until you can extricate yourself. Dear Annie: I am in need of wedding etiquette advice. Both my fiance and I are entering the Army after we marry, although we aren’t sure exactly when. We do not wish to receive gifts because neither of us has storage space, nor can we afford to rent it. When we enter the military, we will be

gone for six weeks of basic training and another six months for advanced individual training. Obviously, we would find it much more practical to receive money. Is there any way to ask our guests for cash instead of gifts? Could we ask them to send gifts at a later date when we return from training? We considered renewing our vows in a year and getting gifts then. What do you think? -- Future Army Bride and Soldier Dear Future Bride: People are going to get you gifts regardless of what you want them to do. It is impolite to tell guests to give you money, but you can ask your parents and friends to spread the word. To be on the safe side, you also should register at a store where you can return the gifts and get cash or credit. And while we aren’t particularly in favor of them, popular registries also include intangibles, such as honeymoons and house down payments. Regardless of what your guests choose to give, we hope you will show appropriate appreciation in your thank-you note. Congratulations and best wishes. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Maria in Texas,” who fears abusing her child. She should contact Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (ascasupport.org) to begin the process of healing the damage caused by being an abused child, which will then stop her from abusing her own children. I was in that same repetitive trap 28 years ago. The group therapy at ASCA is life changing and lifesaving. Please recommend this to those who find themselves repeating what was done to them as children. -- Pennsylvania Dear Pennsylvania: Thank you for providing this resource to our readers. It will surely help.

Graton & Associates, with the first and most important task being the replacement of the wooden shake roof. The total project, including repairs to the walkway, is estimated to cost $45,000. The voters of Ashland approved a warrant article appropriating $25,000 for the repairs at the March town election. The Sarah S. MacMillan Foundation gave $10,000 for the project. The Historical Society set out last month to raise the remaining $10,000 by offering to match all private donations of up to $5000 with funds from its Squam River Covered Bridge Fund, which consists of money left over from the construction of the bridge.

Laconia is check-point for New England Motomarathon endurance ride SHELBURNE — Laconia will be one of the checkpoints of the Motomarathon Association’s 2nd Annual New England Motomarathon to be held June 9 — 12. Routes are kept secret until the night before each day’s ride, and participants must complete a sequence of self-recorded check-points using digital cameras over the four days, averaging approximately 400 miles per day. Day One routes will be handed out to participants at Kawasaki/KTM/ Aprilia dealer Motofit, located in Danbury, CT, at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, June 8 and again at 8 a.m. on Thursday, June 9. Riders will record the designated check-points on the way to Shelburne, NH, spending three nights

and two days riding, checking in and out from the headquarters hotel, Birch Bend MotoLodge, which caters to motorcyclists. Riders will return to Danbury on June 12 for the Awards Dinner at Motofit. The ride, designed by Routemaster Daniel Monteiro and sponsored by Motofit, Revolution Insurance, and Butler Motorcycle Maps, will include check-points near two of the nation’s biggest motorcycle rallies: Americade in Lake George, NY, and Laconia Motorcycle Week in New Hampshire. “The Motomarathon format has struck a nerve with today’s long-distance riders,” said Revolution Insurance Chairman Cliff La Motta. “This four-day endurance tour takes on the best backroads in the region, including the New Hampshire Notches. Revolution Insurance, Motofit

Offering state-of-the-art technology for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and heart disease. The best technology is here, right in your community.

and Butler Motorcycle Maps are proud to promote this highest form of motorcycle sport-touring.” For more information, visit www.motomarathon. com or contact John Metzger at (303) 641-1062, or e-mail john@metzger.com.

Meredith Village Savings Bank offering day trip to Ogunquit Playhouse

MEREDITH — Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB) will host a scenic one-day trip to Ogunquit and a show at the acclaimed Ogunquit Playhouse on Saturday, July 23. Upon arriving at the “Beautiful Place by the Sea,” participants will have several options for exploring this picturesque seaside resort town incuding enjoying breathtaking scenery from aboard a trolley; discovering local art and culture reflected through an array of galleries and museums; walking the Marginal Way, a mile-long cliff walk meandering along the ocean’s edge; watching a lobster boat pass through the hand-operated bridge in Perkins Cove; and visiting the beach ranked in the “Top 10 of American Beaches” by Ladies Home Journal. After a morning exploration, attendees will meet for lunch at Jonathan’s Restaurant, where they will have a choice of chicken, pork, or scallop and crab-stuffed sole. Then the group will be off to “America’s Foremost Summer Theatre” for the Broadway classic “The Music Man.” The critically acclaimed production follows fast-talking traveling salesman Harold Hill as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band he vows to organize – despite the fact that he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef. Quirky characters and awardwinning songs make this play a classic. For many years, MVSB has partnered with Rick and Wanda Bogin of Plymouth Travel to host a number of motor coach tours and other trips to exciting destinations and cultural events. For more details about this excursion to Ogunquit, or to reserve a spot, visit www.mvsb.com/travel, call Plymouth Travel at 536-2403 or MVSB at 528-1500.


Lohan begins serving sentence on house arrest

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lindsay Lohan returned to a women’s jail before dawn on Thursday and was released before rush hour to begin serving a four-month jail sentence at her home for a probation violation. The actress left the lockup with an ankle monitor that she must wear for about 35 days, sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said. The term is longer than the three weeks or less that Lohan would have spent in a solitary confinement unit at the jail, where she served 14 days last summer for another probation violation. Whitmore said the “Mean Girls” star is paying for the costs of her monitoring.
