Young man takes own life while fleeing Gilmanton police GILMANTON — A 25-yearold local man is said to have shot himself to death Monday while fleeing police who wanted to question him about an alleged assault in Loudon. Christopher Morgan was found laying on an access road to Meetinghouse Road around midday, suffering from

a gunshot wound to the head. He was was transported to Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia and then on to Darmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon. He was pronounced dead at 4:51 p.m. According to a police report, at about 11 a.m., Loudon Police notified Gilmanton Police there

were looking for Morgan in connection with a domestic violence assault that had allegedly taken place earlier in the day. Later, an unidentified officer attempted to speak with Morgan at a home on Meetinghouse Road but Morgan is said to have fled into a wooded area to avoid the contact.

The Gilford K-9 unit was called upon to help track down Morgan and while the search was on, police heard a single gunshot. Acting police chief William Robarge said the incident remains under investigation by both police departments, in conjunction with the N.H. Chief Medical Examiner’s Office.

Pope’s butler vows to help with Vatican scandal probe

MIAMI (AP) — A witness says a naked man chewing on the face of another naked man on a downtown highway ramp kept eating and growled at a police officer who fatally shot him to make him stop. Larry Vega told WSVN-TV in Miami that he was riding his bicycle Saturday afternoon off the MacArthur Causeway that connects downtown Miami with Miami Beach when he saw the savage attack on the bridge’s off-ramp. “The guy was, like, tearing him to pieces with his mouth, so I told him, ‘Get off!’” Vega said. “The guy just kept eating the other guy away, like, ripping his skin.” The slain man was identified by the MiamiDade County Medical Examiner’s office as Rudy Eugene, 31, Miami television stasee MIAMI page 9

VATICAN CITY (AP) — The biggest scandal to rock the Vatican in decades widened Monday with the pope’s butler, arrested for allegedly having confidential documents in his home, agreeing to cooperate with investigators — raising the specter that higher-ranking ecclesial heads may soon roll. Few believe butler Paolo Gabriele worked alone to leak dozens of documents shedding light on power struggles, corruption and intrigue inside the highest levels of the Catholic Church. The leaks have tormented

the Vatican for months and painted a picture of a church hierarchy in utter disarray. Gabriele, the pope’s personal butler since 2006, was arrested Wednesday evening after Holy See documents were found inside his Vatican City apartment, adding an unfathomable Hollywood twist to the already sordid Vatileaks scandal. He remains in custody in a Vatican detention facility, accused of theft, and has met with his wife and lawyers. Gabriele’s lawyer, Carlo Fusco, said Monday his client was “very serene and calm,” despite the whirlwind of speculation

surrounding his arrest. He said Gabriele himself had told the Vatican judge investigating the case that he would “respond to all the questions and will collaborate with investigators to ascertain the truth.” Italian media reported Monday that a cardinal is suspected of playing a major role in the scandal. However, the Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, denied the reports categorically. He said many Vatican officials were being questioned but insisted “there is no cardinal see VATICAN page 10

Qatar officials say 13 children among 19 dead as result of mall fire DOHA, Qatar (AP) — Qatar’s Interior Ministry said 13 children were among 19 people killed in a fire that broke out in one of the country’s fanciest shopping malls late Monday morning, raising questions about building safety in the booming Gulf state. At least some of the victims died as rescuers struggled to reach a child care center at the Villaggio mall in the capital Doha, according to Qatar’s Minister of State for Interior Affairs, Sheik Abdullah bin

Nasser Al Thani. Four of the children killed were Spanish citizens living in the small Arab emirate, the Spanish Foreign Ministry said. It did not identify the children, citing Spanish privacy regulations. Also, a 3-year-old French child was among the victims, the deputy minister for overseas French citizens, Yamina Benguigui, said in a statement. Young New Zealand triplets were also

believed to be among the victims, said New Zealand’s Prime Minister John Key, though he could not yet confirm the deaths. “We tried our best, but when we got there, the children were trapped inside. We are very sorry for what happened. We tried as much as we could to save these people,” Sheik Abdullah told reporters in Doha.

Bettencourt law school cheating scandal gives Democrats more fuel for Nov. CONCORD (AP) — The New Hampshire House Republican leader’s resignation and admission he falsified law school reports casts GOP leadership and the party in a bad light, and voters could take out their irritation at the ballot box, political observers said Monday. Rep. D.J. Bettencourt announced Sunday he was resigning from the Legislature immediately while admitting he had misrepresented legal work he performed for another legislator while attending the University of New Hampshire School of Law. Matters came to a head over the weekend after Rep. Brandon Giuda, R-Chichester, called on the 28-year-old Bettencourt to resign, claiming he fabricated law school records indicating he completed a semester-long legal internship at Giuda’s office despite working there for only one hour. The hullabaloo will give Democrats ammunition in November’s elections, fueling the party’s claims that the GOP has been pushing issues state residents don’t favor and that leadership has been problematic and “dishonest,” said Andrew Smith, a University of New Hampshire political science professor. “Democrats will use that as a campaign argument against Republicans broadly,” Smith said. “As a broad principle, they’ll say it’s time to go in and clean up Concord.” The state Legislature, with 400 seats in the House and 24 in the Senate, is overwhelmingly Republican. The governor, John Lynch, is a Democrat. Bettencourt, in his Friday announcement that he would step down from the Legislature on the final day of the session, June 6, said he had just graduated from law school and was about to get married and begin a new job as executive director of the New Hampshire Legal Rights Foundation, a

nonprofit legal advocacy group. He said it was time “to move on to the next exciting phase of my life.” The announcement angered Giuda, who had met with Bettencourt and House Speaker William O’Brien, R-Mont Vernon, earlier in the day to talk about the misrepresentations Bettencourt had made to the law school. The three agreed Bettencourt would announce he was resigning due to “personal problems.” After Giuda saw Bettencourt’s resignation announcement, he threatened to make the law school records public unless Bettencourt resigned immediately. Giuda said Monday he agreed last winter to let Bettencourt work for him in his one-person home office for a legal internship to meet his requirement to graduate from law school. Bettencourt agreed to work every Friday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. for the semester but ended up working only one hour in total, Giuda said. Giuda said that after he saw that Bettencourt had participated in the law school’s May 19 commencement in cap and gown, he obtained the internship records and learned that Bettencourt had submitted to the university 11 weeks of reports — with details such as court hearings, meetings and talks with clients that had never happened — giving him the credits he needed to graduate. “When I saw those, I got a pit in my stomach,” Giuda said. “This wasn’t just cheating. This was premeditated at the same time he’s standing at the podium castigating other people on ethics.” He said he forced Bettencourt to resign because of

his deception, not his politics, and his party affiliation didn’t matter. “To me this has nothing to do with party,” Giuda said, “it has to do with an individual.” Bettencourt didn’t return a phone call Monday for comment. O’Brien, the House speaker, also could come under pressure in the days ahead, said Bob Clegg, a former Senate majority leader and speaker pro tem of the House during his 14 years in the Legislature. He said people are going to ask if O’Brien was covering up for Bettencourt and how Bettencourt came to land a job at the New Hampshire Legal Rights Foundation, which lists O’Brien as its vice chairman on its website. “I believe the speaker was trying to help the kid out of a bad situation, but a lot of people are going to ask if that was the right thing to do,” said Clegg, a Republican from Hudson. “Are the coming days going to be tough on Speaker O’Brien? You bet.” Within hours of Bettencourt’s resignation, state Democratic Party Chairman Raymond Buckley said it’s time for O’Brien to “come clean” about his role. O’Brien doesn’t have a listed phone number and couldn’t be reached for comment on Monday, Memorial Day. Rep. Lee Quandt, R-Exeter, said he expects honesty and integrity to be the main issues in the fall elections. “What you’re going to see is we’re going to be touting all the money we saved and all the wonderful things we did,” he said, “and the Democrats and the voters are going to say, ‘But can you trust them? They lied.’”

Unwanted baby left on step at Portsmouth Hospital

PORTSMOUTH, (AP) — Police in New Hampshire say a healthy newborn baby boy was dropped off at the Portsmouth Regional Hospital in what appears to be the case of a parent leaving an unwanted baby at a designated safe haven without fear of prosecution. Portsmouth Police Capt. Mike Schwartz says the baby, dropped off about 4 a.m. Saturday, is just days old. Police are investigating to be sure the baby wasn’t abducted or is associated with a crime. State child services officials are also involved. Schwartz says it’s the first such case he’s seen since New Hampshire’s safe haven law was passed in 2003. WMUR-TV says it’s the third case in New Hampshire since the law was enacted.

Waste, fraud & abuse Republicans want to throw Granny off the cliff. They also want to take away Pell Grants, and food stamps from those in need, etc., etc. So say the orchestrators of the Democrat political strategies for the 2012 elections. Raising taxes is the only answer, because it’s “fair”, even though raising taxes on the rich is only a gnat’s eyelash in the overall scheme of thing. If spending is not brought under control, we cannot raise taxes enough to overcome our deficits. Many businesses include as part of their staff, an “Internal Auditing” function. Internal auditing is used to verify that company policies and practices are being carried out and results are reported properly. Integrity in reporting results are examined and validated, and operating inefficiencies are highlighted. Department managers who want to ensure they are operating within the guidelines specified by the company often request this selfassessment function. These routine actions are an integral part of companies avoiding the “waste, fraud, and abuse” we often hear will be addressed in government. However, although we often hear politicians are going to fight waste, fraud and abuse, we never hear about a real audit or corrective steps that show real savings from such an audit. Another part of business and government planning is budgeting. In government, most often last year’s budget becomes the baseline or starting point for this year’s. Any reduction in the rate of growth for the following year, is considered a “cut”, and is subject to demagoguery by one side or the other. In business, many companies use a “zero based” budgeting concept where individual departments build their business plan and corresponding budget for the year starting with a blank slate. Departments have to prove their need for resources and funding based on what they are committing to achieve for the company. Here are some examples of how our government operates . . . Congress became somewhat embarrassed by having to vote themselves annual raises, especially in years when the public economy was stagnant or in a downturn. To overcome their embarrassment, they enacted a law which provides them automatic pay increases every year unless they specifically vote, in a given year, to not have their salary raised. How many readers have had their wages raised over 57-percent in the last 13 years?

The Federal Government sometimes establishes a new cabinetlevel department. Normally, these are well intentioned and designed to improve a process and achieve more desirable results. During his administration, President Carter established the Department of Energy in an effort to reduce our dependence on “foreign oil”. He also established the Department of Education, which many consider to be a direct violation of the 10th Amendment to the Constitution, as it imposes the federal government into state and local decisions. Since its inception, this department has spent billions and billions of dollars with only a steady decline in achievement to show for it. Yet, the cry is to throw even more money at the problem. From 1980 to 2011, this department’s annual budget has risen from $13.1-billion to $77.8-billion, while student testing scores have declined over the period. When the Energy Department was formed in 1977, the United States imported about 6.6-million barrels of oil per day. Instead of those numbers declining, they increased to a point where we were importing 9+ and 10+ millions of barrels per day. Those numbers did drop to slightly under 9-million barrels in 2011, due primarily to the economic downturn, the high price of gasoline, and the drop in fuel oil consumption due to the unusually warm winter. The President asked for the Energy Department’s budget to again be increased to $29.5-billion for 2012. Clearly, in a business enterprise, these two departments would either be eliminated or their budgets severely reduced until they could prove their worth. The same might be said for the General Services Administration which recently grabbed headlines with its obscene indulgences at taxpayer’s expense. Here is a case where an internal auditing function would have red flagged and stopped such abuses. And, be aware that this department is also responsible for the millions and millions of dollars that are being spent on building space that has gone unused for years. Waste, fraud, and abuse . . . it’s being perpetrated by the federal government on its citizen taxpayers. If we want to help those who are in need, we need to do so by finding ways to pay for that help without adding to our debt and deficit. We do that by getting rid of bureaucratic waste and inefficiency. (Bob Meade is a resident of Laconia.)

LETTERS My father died so that Mr. Preston wouldn’t have to salute flag To the editor, I would like to thank you for the editorial reminding your readers and all concerned for the celebration of Memorial Day. I am well aware, personally, of the sacrifices military men and women, and their families, make to assure our freedom. My father was killed in the Pacific when I was 15 months old and my step-father was in the United States Army for 21 years. My brother served a tour in Vietnam and my first husband served two tours in Vietnam, wounded in the 2nd tour of duty. As a captain in the United States Army Nurse Corp, I cared for patients from World War II and from the Korean and Vietnam Conflicts. Later, my orders deployed me to Frankfort, Germany, in a military hospital caring for soldiers from Desert Storm. It was a privilege and an honor to know them. For the last three meetings of the Board of Selectmen of Ashland, the replays on channel 3 show Selectman Philip Preston not saluting the flag of the United States and it appeared he did not say the Pledge of Allegiance. At the May 21 Board of Selectmen’s meeting, I said to Selectman Preston “you choose neither to salute the

flag of the United States nor to recite The Pledge of Allegiance”. Mr. Preston muttered he had personal reasons and felt he was a “patriot” and the Pledge of Allegiance’ was rote (mechanical; use of memory with little intelligence — Webster’s definition). I leave Mr. Preston to define the word “patriot” but he has no right to say when I recite The Pledge of Allegiance it is rote nor is it rote to others. I also have personal reasons, very personal reasons, and saying “I Pledge Allegiance to the Flag” is stating your loyalty to the flag of the United States. It is said with passion and love. Men and women have died to defend the flag of this country which has given Mr. Preston the right to dissent. The American flag flies daily at my home. This flag was flown over the USS Arizona, sunk at Pearl Harbor. Over 1,100 sailors lost their lives on the USS Arizona. It is truly ironic that my father, who I never had a chance to know, had his voice muted when his destroyer was sunk by an enemy so that Mr. Preston can stand silent with arms at his side before the flag of the United States. Freedom indeed was not free. Freedom was purchased in World War II alone by the blood of more than

Let’s develop a test for people who’d like to serve on City Council To the editor, Many businesses require potential employees to take a test to prove they are fit for the job. Would it be fair to ask the same of those running for public office? I’m not suggesting a mandatory test but an optional quiz for those who would attempt to serve on the City Council. Before running for office it would seem any responsible citizen would want to know if they are prepared to deal with the nuts and bolts of the job without needing to receive interpretation and tutoring from the city manager. The test could be easily generated by using current government materials and asking questions about them. Does the person who is thinking about helping to run the city understand the various ordinances and laws? Can they read and comprehend documents generated by law-

to spot the benefits and limitations in an insurance policy? Can they crunch the numbers and answer questions about the budget? Are they able to compose their thoughts and opinions in writing? I’m sure the city could find qualified volunteers to create fair and insightful questions The results would remain the property of the person who took the test. If they did well they could boast about the results. If they did poorly they could say they didn’t take the test or belittle the testing process. The test could be made available to anyone who cares to take it. Perhaps it could be offered to high school students or even published on line. If nothing else the test would clarify some of the tasks council members are asked to deal with and help us appreciate the work they must try to do. Tom Becker

LETTERS Firefighters are firefighters, not necessarily shade tree mechanics To the editor, I thank The Daily Sun for covering the May 24 Gilford Budget Committee “public hearing”. I don’t know if I was counted as one of the 14 taxpayers who bothered to show up to get some more informed impressions of the status of the selectmen’s recent fire truck proposal. Probably not, as after the first 20 minutes there seemed no intent by the Budget Committee to determine whether there would be a meeting or not, and I left to pursue a more productive enterprise. I awaited in vain for someone to introduce a motion to adjourn, but after 20 minutes there had been none. It seems clear to me that some of the members of the committee where more intent on debating the merits of having the actual meeting that they were having rather than having the meeting. That is, the public hearing for the benefit of the public that had been scheduled. You take a two or three-year-old to the grocery store and they choose to put five or six items in the cart. Before checking out you let them choose two or three items they can have and put the rest back on the shelves for another time. By the time they enter pre-school they come to understand “What Mick says”.

I have already at two previous public meetings “I bothered to attend” as a concerned citizen, stated what my position is on replacing “a piece of junk”. I am something of a shade tree mechanic myself. I once went to pick up an old Ford Escort from a dealer and when they handed me a +$2500 estimate for the cost of making it inspectable, they also inquired as to whether I wanted to leave the car to be “junked” there. After a few days of shade tree work and the $400 for parts I returned and had my car stickered. I later sold that “junk” car for $800, $250 more than I was asking before I had it stickered and $3,300 less than I had paid for it. For my purpose the car was junk but still had as junk a residual value more than the garage was calculating. That did not stop me from replacing it with a more expensive and reliable late model Forester. It has been observed before that firefighters are firefighters and not necessarily shade tree mechanics. Thank you for staying for the rest of the circus and reporting on the “public hearing” meeting finally adjourning and now to be continued.... Tim Sullivan Gilford

Electric Coop has not been candid & open about wireless meters To the editor, Transparency means “to be candid, frank and open”. I really believe N.H. Electric Coop has been very deceptive to its public members. The first example that comes to mind is that an open meeting in every town sponsored by the NHEC was never conducted. “The Right to Know Law (RSA 91-A) was violated. The flyers that accompany the bills were programmed so the members were not aware of the scope of this ruse to undermine our “Fourth Amendment Rights”, to feel safe and secure in our homes. Our privacy and choice were voided by this company. The NHEC Ethical Code under transparency states, “NHEC is dedicated to providing information to its members about its operation”. It also states: “. . . to keep the members informed of the operations of the coop.” And, under Legal and Regulatory Compliance: “NHEC will comply with all local,state and federal laws,

and regulations applicable to the activities of the company”. As a member, I feel the issue of being transparent to the members is non-existent. This power company has mislead the members by leaving out publicly available facts and information regarding this wireless electric meter. Does anyone know that propane gas inside or outside our homes — the wireless smart meter has the potency to ignite a fire? I went to the Meredith Fire Department and they were unaware of the circumstances or were they aware there it was not “UL certified”. RF spikes have been known to break appliances. Wireless smart meters cause arcing, interfere with ground interraprtors (GFIS) and have implicated in fires, especially in homes with older wiring. Is anyone aware that the effect of radiation outside and inside our homes is detrimental to the plants and animals? Rosemary Landry Meredith

At 79, I figure I’ve gotten back about 1/3 of what I put in to SS To the editor, Relative to Tony Boutin’s interesting letter of May 25: Tony means well, but being young (compared to me), he missed a very important point. The money we have paid into Social Security had, on average, three times the value of the money returned. Thus at 79, so far I’ve netted about 1/3 of what I paid in. By Social Security guestimates (based on averages) I should have died two years ago, and thus they are WAY ahead on income versus outgo! The make believe “deficit” is due ONLY due to our wonderful helpful government helping themselves to OUR investment, and NEVER paying us fair interest rates on our investment! Medicare is a totally different govern-

snake!. Based on what I, or any reasonable person would pay doctors for treatment, (and again on normalized money value) I paid far more into Medicare than received, despite having unusually large numbers of medical difficulties. BUT, the GOVERNMENT controllers, obviously getting enormous kickbacks, pay doctors and hospitals four to eight times what’s reasonable! THAT IS NOT welfare! That is government THEFT. The idea of Medicare is good, BUT the completely rotten dishonest government runs cost to the sky. Still, it is NOT welfare! If you think that is bad now, wait until “Obamacare” kicks in, with 100 times more waste and graft, and far less service. Jack Stephenson

LETTERS One inequity we share is lack of care over what happens to kids

Top 6 in the country

LRGHea Doctors, Re lthcare Oncology search Tea m & Staff

The Conquer Cancer Foundation of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) has recognized LRGHealthcare’s Oncology Department, in collaboration with NH Oncology, as one of six community oncology practices in the country for their work in improving cancer care through high-quality clinical trials program.

To the editor, John Demakowski responded to my letter, so I’ll respond to his. Alice Miller is a Swiss psychoanalyst who became known for her work in understanding and explaining the effects of child abuse on individuals and society. Her main premise is that along with the abuse itself, the abused child usually learns a dynamic in which the only reality they are allowed to see is the abuser’s. So that inside the child’s psyche, the attitudes and rationalizations that justify the abuse are internalized and there is no one inside the child’s mind to take the child part and sympathize with him. Because the has learned to identify with the parent, he denies and represses the experience of his own suffering. The only means left to him then to communicate what has been to hims is to “act it out” the phrase used to describe how he tells the world what was done to him by doing to to someone else. This “acting out” is purely subconscious. The person doing it does not know that’s what he’s doing. Alice Miller wrote many books. One of them was about the childhood of Adolph Hitler. I don’t remember the title, but anyone who’s interested

could easily google it. In the book she chronicles his daily beatings by his father, who not only beat him severely and repetitively, but demanded worshipful respect from his son at the same time. Hitler, she writes was “scapegoated” by his father for his own self-hatred, most likely learned from a similar treatment by his own father. Hitler ten grew up full of shame and rage that he was not conscious of and unloaded it by “scapegoating” the Jews. According to Miller, this kind of child rearing was prevalent in Germany at that time. Rather than maligning the Germans, this explanation actually exonerates them and restores their humanity. It shows they are not genetically disposed to act like villains, but rather victims of toxic parenting. John Demakowski is right. A profitable inquiry would be into what inequities we all are heir to, as a nation and as a world. I think looking at the world conditions since time began, one inequity we all share is the lack of people everywhere taking seriously what happens to young children. Leo Sandy just pointed our one very blatant and identifiable example of it. Hillarie Goldstein Franklin

Rep. Guinta welcomes avalanche of money from wealthy outsiders

City of Laconia Department of Public Works 603-528-7379/603-527-1298

To the editor, Congressman Frank Guinta recently rejected (accompanied by juvenile name calling) former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter’s wonderful idea to put New Hampshire citizens ahead of outsiders by denouncing SuperPAC money. An appalling 93-percent of SuperPAC money has come from just 726 individuals — 23 out of every 10 million people (see: itsallpolitics/2012/02/09/146629883/ another-senate-campaign-could-seesuperpac-truce)! I’m not shocked that Congressman Guinta welcomes the coming avalanche of money from super-wealthy outsiders. After all, Congressman Guinta is a fan of taking money wherever he finds it, and then using it as wastefully as possible. He was the #1 spender in the country for taxpayer-funded congressional mailings (which look suspiciously like campaign mailers), while closing one of our two district offices to help pay for them — offices that are there to

help New Hampshire citizens in need, not congressional campaigns. Congressman Guinta has has yet to explain the $355,000 that mysteriously arrived in his campaign account in 2010 and is still being in investigated by the FEC. These are some reasons why he was selected to the elite club of the 14 most corrupt legislators in our Congress. As a leader of the regressive wing of the reactionary faction of the government hating tea baggers, he has earned a National Journal ranking as the 31st most conservative congressman, all the while living off of the taxpayers for many years in a variety of government jobs. Putting outsider SuperPACs ahead of New Hampshire citizens is standard operating procedure for Congressman Guinta. Re-electing Carol Shea-Porter will give us an honest, trustworthy, effective legislator who cares only about the citizens of New Hampshire. Lew Henry Gilmanton Iron Works

Taking up full page with one letter to editor is not very green of Tim To the editor, Just a quick note in response to Tim Sullivan of Gilford who seems to think my “rants” about the rising costs of energy are just me blaming liberals. Not so. I have been mad ever since the 1973 oil embargo. We created the Department of Energy to make the U.S. energy independent. There have been Republican administrations and Democratic ones and none of them have done a thing to make independence happen. Right now, Obama is in the oval office and he was elected to fix FIX THINGS, that includes energy independence. Gas and oil

are indispensable to this nation and Obama has only made matters worse. His obsession with GREEN this and GREEN that, none of which is ready for prime time — you’re darn right I’m going to rant about it. As for the Dakota oil fields, that’s private land which Obama can’t control. Production is up in spite of him, not because of him. And speaking of rants, Tim’s letter took up the equivalent of a full page of this paper, not very green of him. Steve Earle Hill

LETTERS Freedom to make choices about what we eat used to be a given To the editor, Can anyone give me an example of a society that became freer and happier when it’s citizens relinquished essential liberties in order to obtain some elusive government certified safety? Our very own U.S. Food and Drug Administration has recently declared the following: “There is no absolute right to consume or feed children any particular food.” “There is no ‘deeply rooted’ historical tradition of unfettered access to foods of all kinds.” These remarks were in response to a Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund lawsuit filed against the FDA over their banning of raw milk in interstate commerce. This is because the FDA is supposedly “promoting bodily and physical health” by doing so. Nothing could be further from the “truth”. That would be the ever elusive concept that most news sources are loathe to reveal when it comes to this subject. They won’t tell you that clean, raw, unpasteurized milk is far superior nutritionally to the boiled to death, fake stuff sold in supermarkets. They will try to keep hidden, the incestuous relationship between our government and the powerful dairy lobby and their factory farms. Those would be the farms where cows are forced to stand on concrete all day, never allowed to feed on healthier pasture meal, injected with antibiotics and given hormones so they will produce more milk since they live about half as long as pasture fed cows. I’m guessing that not many folks know that in the past several decades there have been more illness and disease derived from pasteurized/homogenized milk than from the unadulterated, nutritious stuff. Freedom to make choices for our children and ourselves about what we put into our bodies used to be a given. One would think that making informed choices about our health would be easier today with the world wide web. The response is endlessly fascinating when I write about this subject. Depending on one’s point of view, I may be viewed as a conservative, liberal, libertarian, capitalist or anti-capitalist. The thing is, I just want to be treated like an adult and have the government do it’s constitutionally intended role and otherwise leave me alone to make my own choices and take responsibility for them. Anyone who watches the John Stossel show knows that our government has so many rules and regulations that there is no way anyone, including

attorneys can possibly keep abreast of them. Or that despite this massive assault on our lives, our federal government sees fit to write hundreds upon hundreds more each year. Is this really all about protecting helpless citizens or is it about playing the “gotcha game” with people just trying to make a living in order to obtain more revenue for more government programs. Randy and Karen Sowers are honest, small farmers who had $70,000 seized from their bank account through a law called the Bank Secrecy Act which they had never heard of. Now, according to Food Freedom News, “The Dept of Justice has since sued to keep $63,000 of the Sowers’ money though they committed no crime, to the best of their knowledge, other than maintaining their privacy”. Another small farm may bite the dust due to government bullying. Last year, Taylor’s Produce Stand had $90,000 seized by the feds who then dropped the charges and kept $45,000 of the Taylor’s money. These are just two recent examples of our government’s abusive power causing financial ruin to small business owners. CAFOs (confined animal feeding operations) a/k/a large government approved farms, are out to squash the small farmers out of existence. If you like you can check out the website for more stories of abusive power such as the one about the government deciding what kind of hogs folks in Michigan are allowed to raise and sell like the Baker’s Green Acres Farm. Many of you have no doubt heard about the FDA’s war against Amish raw milk farmers. Or other major government wars on lemonade stands, walnut health advocates, salt, nutritional supplements etc. As Dr. Joseph Mercola notes, “it’s about your ability, your right, to purchase and consume pure unadulterated food — a right that continues to be threatened for those living in the United States”. Okay, so just where are those examples that “government intrusions for our own good” makes us healthier, happier and freer? Cuz, I’m just not feeling the love. Please support your local farmers and farmers’ markets while you still can. They may not be around much longer if the complacency of U.S. citizens continues to grow unabated until we are a liberty-infused republic no longer. Russ Wiles Tilton

Critical that we find a way to continue to fund N.H. Poison Control To the editor, There is a crisis on the verge of happening in Concord and, this time, individuals do have a voice. The state’s Poison Control Center will close July 1 unless the necessary $600,000 in operating funds are found somewhere in the state budget. A recent federal ruling found that New Hampshire had been paying these bills out of the wrong fund, so there is a scramble to find another source to keep open our access to this critical service. Nationally, according to the American Association of Poison Control

behind car crashes for cause of death by injury. Parents, schools, even doctors’ offices rely on the Poison Control Center for quick information on dangerous situations: 20,000 calls from N.H. each year. These calls can usually mean avoiding a trip to the emergency room, and a $7 savings to the health care system per incident. Losing this service will ultimately cost the state vastly more than the $600,000 it needs to find to keep our participation intact. The Legislature’s Fiscal Committee is meeting on this issue.

Laconia Memorial Day observance sparks meeting Lakeport Square flagpole of 2 men with a German POW camp connection dedicated in memory of ‘Queen’Wanda Tibbetts By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Ward 5 City Councilman Bob Hamel said that he was proud to see a float carrying 1940 Laconia High School graduate and World War II veteran John Mont in Monday’s Memorial Day parade because it gave him the opportunity to meet Mont. He said that Mont, who had been a B-17 crew member during the war whose airplanes were twice shot down over Europe, had spent 13 months in a German prison camp, Stalag 13-B, which was the same camp Hamel’s father, Armand, was also held as a prisoner. Hamel said that his father had been a member of a three-man .30 caliber machine gun group which went ashore with the second wave on Normandy Beach on D-Day on June 6, 1944. He said that his father was captured shortly after the group landed and had spent 11 months in the prison camp. Mont who was a top ball turret gunner on a B-17 which crashed into the English Channel on Dec. 30, 1943 after it had lost two engines in a raid on Ludwigshaven, Germany. He survived and on mission on Friday April 13, 1944 Messerschmitt plant in Augsburg, Germany Mont’s aircraft was so badly damaged that the crew had to bail out. He was taken prisoner and spent the next 13 months in Stalag 13-B. ‘’It was great to finally meet him,’’ said Hamel, who said that his father had died at a relatively young age, 59, and that his experience as a prisoner of war may have contributed to that. Mayor Michael Seymour was the featured speaker at the traditional observance at Veterans’ Park and said that it was important that ‘’we never forget those who laid down their lives for us. They gave their tomorrows for our todays.’’ He urged the large crowd attending the ceremony to honor those who are still serving and quoted Abraham Lincoln who said “a nation which does not

LACONIA — Mayor Michael Seymour recalled that the first time he ever met Wanda Tibbetts: ‘’She gave me the business about things that needed to be done in Lakeport and left me with no doubt about what Lakeport and Leavitt Park meant to her.’’ Seymour made the remarks Monday as he spoke at a dedication ceremony for a new flagpole in Lakeport, in a garden area just across the railroad tracks from the Lakeport Fire Station. Having a flagpole erected at the site was a longtime goal of Tibbetts, known to all as ‘’the Queen of Lakeport’’ and of the Lakeport Community Association, which she helped form in 1997 to help revitalize and preserve the Lakeport section of the city. Tibbetts, who ran Wanda’s Beauty Shop on Elm Street for more than 40 years, died in February of this year and was a widely recognized community leader and spokesman for Lakeport. ‘’She was a terrific lady and when she said something, people jumped,’’ said Ward 6 City Councilman Armand Bolduc, who is a member of the Lakeport group’s board of directors. Bolduc said that more work remains to be done in the area of the flagpole, including installation of a a flower garden and a granite marker with a plaque which will honor Tibbetts’ memory. He said that the association is working towards opening the nearby freight house as a museum, another of her goals, by the middle or end of August. Bob Fortier, one of the founders of the association and a member of the board of directors, said that he remembers Tibbetts taking a leadership role when the Lakeport bridge was rebuilt and there were concerns over how it would impact the community. Over the years the association has helped pursee next page

The name of the victim, who was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital, had not been immediately determined by authorities, said Detective William Moreno. Messages left Monday for a police spokesman were not immediately returned. A spokeswoman said Monday that the hospital would not be releasing any information about him. A surveillance video camera from The Miami Herald building nearby captured images of the men’s naked legs lying side by side after the shooting. Vega said the victim appeared gravely injured. “It was just a blob of blood,” Vega said. “You couldn’t really see, it was just blood all over the place.”

Shaker board gets briefing on ‘pay to play’; no action planned By Mike Mortensen FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

BELMONT — The Shaker Regional School Board has taken under advisement information dealing with the issue of students paying a fee to participate in sports or other extracurricular activities. But the board his not expected to alter its present policy which allows students to participate in activities at little or no cost. The matter was addressed at Thursday’s School Board meeting held in Belmont, Interim Superintendent Tom Haley said the board received the results of a statewide study on fees charged by schools for students participating in various athletic programs. That study, conducted by the New Hampshire Interscholastic Athletic Association, was presented along with a detailed outline of how much the school district spends on sports and other after-school programs. Haley said that total cost of sports and other extra-curricular programs at the district’s four schools comes to about $300,000 a year. That figure includes transportation costs and any stipends paid to coaches and faculty advisers.

Pick-up driver killed in 1 vehicle Chemung Rd. accident MEREDITH — The driver of a 1990 Chevy pickup truck was killed late Sunday night as the result of a single-vehicle accident on Chemung Road. Police have not publicly identified the victim of the crash pending the notification of relatives. According to a police report, officers were called to the scene at 11:22 p.m. and discovered the truck had

been traveling west bound and had left the roadway near Loon Point Road. it appeared the vehicle had side-swiped several small trees before striking a larger one head-on. The driver was declared to be dead at the scene. The accident remains under investigation.

EGYPT from page 2 Shafiq, also a former air force commander, in the June 16-17 runoff. They were the top vote-getters in last week’s first round of voting. Announcing the final results, election commission chief Farouq Sultan said that Morsi won close to 5.8 million votes, or almost 25 percent, while Shafiq gar-

nered 5.5 million votes, or nearly 24 percent. Finishing third was leftist candidate Hamdeen Sabahi with 4.8 million votes, or about 21 percent. To get the support it needs, the Brotherhood must tone down its religious rhetoric and offer far-reaching concessions, such as protecting the right to protest and strike, election-watchers said.

Presently most Shaker students and their parents pay little or no out-of-pocket expenses to participate in extra-curricular activities, though in some sports, like hockey, players have to pay for their own equipment. Haley said the board is not looking toward any change in policy. “The consensus of the board is it’s good to have information (about the cost of extra-curricular activities and how various schools cover that cost), and the board is not really looking to move in any particular direction. But if the matter should come up in the future they will have some information to use as a starting point.” In other business, after two very brief public hearings, the board approved taking money from two special-purpose trust funds to pay for building repairs and technology improvements. The board authorized spending nearly $56,000 for work on the roof of Canterbury Elementary School. It also supported improvements to the school districts computer network and replacing of some existing equipment, including $32.500 for a new server.

VATICAN from page 2 under suspicion.” But Lombardi acknowledged that the investigation continues. And on Monday, Italian daily La Repubblica published a rambling interview with what it described as another Vatican “mole,” someone who described the various agendas at play behind the leaks. The unnamed leaker said the aim was to show how weak Pope Benedict XVI is, the fears of his secretary of state, and to make clear that the “fundamental role of the church is to defend the Gospel, not accumulate power and money.” Lombardi dismissed as “pure fantasy” such a rash of unsourced reports about the investigation in the Italian media, which have been on a frenzy ever

since reports of Gabriele’s detention emerged Friday. Gabriele, a 46-year-old father of three, was always considered extremely loyal to Benedict and his predecessor, John Paul II, for whom he briefly served. Vatican insiders have said they were baffled by his alleged involvement, and Lombardi said Monday that the entire scandal has caused pain throughout the Vatican. Benedict, who in March appointed a commission of cardinals to investigate the leaks, was being kept informed of developments and is “aware of the delicate situation that the Roman curia is going through,” Lombardi said. He acknowledged the “negative image” of the Vatican that was emerging from the scandal but said the developments made it ever more important to “reestablish a climate of clarity, truth, transparency and trust as soon as possible.”

Income — Invest Wisely: It’s Worst Time for Seniors In Last Ten Years

Seniors are more affected by declining interest rates than any other group, since many of them depend on income from investments. Some retirees still have a heavy reliance on CD’s and Treasury Securities. These rates are now the lowest in more than 10 years! If investors keep depending on these sources, they may continue to find their income declining. This can only lead to personal financial disaster – living expenses keep increasing, while income decreases. (TAX rates, we all know, are going to rise, and look at what gas prices are doing to our wallet.) Is there a way out? Yes. The solution is the same as it has always been – purchase/invest longer term. In my opinion the purchase/investment time horizon for retirees is there life expectancy. After the age of 65, a male’s life expectancy is roughly 16 years. That investor/purchaser should be purchasing investments with a 10-16 year term, not six months or one year. If you have a choice, would you rather outlive your money or have your money outlive you? Before judging this advice, consider its validity. If you had invested ten years ago, or even five years ago, with your life expectancy as your time horizon, would you be better or worse off now? You would be better off because you could have purchased Fixed Index Annuities or higher paying stocks, paying better interest rates/index credits or dividends. (These all could have been locked in at attractive rates because longer term purchases help take the bumps out and allow the Companies to manage their profits and this provides a better long-term rate for the consumer. Unfortunately, many retired investors/purchasers still invest out of fear, opting for short-term securities with low income payments. The result is what we see today – falling income and a bleak individual financial picture. So what can retirees do now? In my opinion, invest or purchase long term. There are deferred annuities that pay much better rates than CD’s and Government Securities, and they are safe. (Your monies are protected by the collateral assets of the Insurance Companies, much like Homeowners Insurance. Insurance Companies set monies aside to pay claims so there are legal reserves set aside.) Another alternative is a lifetime immediate fixed annuity that provides an income you cannot outlive. Consult with an advisor experienced in working with pre-retirees and retirees, and learn about these and other ways to maintain your income even if rates are low. Lastly, tax qualified money, in particular, is designed for income payouts. Please be smart, spend your qualified monies and enjoy your life. I see too many people wait until they’re 70 ½ before the government makes them spend their tax qualified accounts. For many it’s tragic that they didn’t enjoy the money earlier in life when they really could have enjoyed it. Dave Kutcher is certified in Long-Term Care Planning (CLTC).

Thick smoke billows from a brick storage building at Paugus Bay Marina in Lakeport during a Sunday afternoon fire. Cause of the fire is still under investigation. (Roger Amsden/for The Laconia Daily Sun)

FIRE from page one of boats to the foot of Paugus Bay. Firefighters initially sought to protect boats which were parked near the building and in the marina’s main storage facility, which is located only a hundred or so feet away from the older brick building. No boats were in the facility according to marina owner Kevin Keenan, who said that there were mainly floats stored inside. Keenan said the fire apparently started as a brush

fire near the railroad tracks at the rear of the building. He said that firefighters did an excellent job in bringing the fire under control and preventing it from damaging the boats stored outside. Firefighters responded to the scene after seeing thick black smoke in the air as they started to return from extinguishing a brush fire along the WOW Trail where is crosses Moulton Street, to the rear of the NAPA Auto parts building. No one was injured in the blaze.

RETIREES from page one all former police officers who put in for full retirement pensions and then, allegedly, took full-time jobs with the county. NHRS retirees are generally not allowed to work full-time at another public sector job that pays into the same retirement system.

Belyea is a retired Meredith police officer who is the court security supervisor for the Belknap County and an employee of the Sheriff’s Department. NHRS claims he received $463,758 in pension funds over the five year period in question and it wants its money back. The system also asserts that Belyea was paid $479,050 by the county over the same period and neither he nor the county paid anything into the fund that was based on those wages. It wants $40,838

from Belyea and another $42,571 from the county. Eagan is also a retired Meredith police officer who works as the county’s community services coordinator. NHRS claims he owes $284,248. Loanes is a retired Belmont police officer who is now director of the county’s Restorative Justice Program. He has been asked to repay $248,505. The newspaer reported that all three men may appeal the claims made against them through two different levels at NHRS and then on to the N.H. Supreme Court, if necessary. NHRS Group II employees — mostly police officer, firefighters and corrections officers — have been allowed to retire at age 45 and 20 years of service so it is not at all unusual for them to go on to other careers. Last July the law was changed so that new hires will not be allowed to reture until ages 52 1/2 and 25 years.

Heat pound Celtics in second half, win game 1, 93-79 MIAMI (AP) — A big early Miami lead was wasted. Once the Heat took control again, they simply ran away from the Boston Celtics. And the NBA finals are now three wins away for LeBron James and the Heat. James scored 32 points and grabbed 13 rebounds, Dwyane Wade scored 10 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter and the Heat beat the Celtics 93-79 on Monday night in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals. Shane Battier, playing in the conference finals for the first time, scored 10 points and had 10 rebounds for the Heat, who wasted an early 11-point first-half lead before running away to break a halftime tie. Miami outrebounded the Celtics 48-33, and blocked 11 Boston shots. It was those last two stats that had James lauding the night as a team effort. “We get a lot of the press, we get a lot of the headlines,” James said. “But our teammates, they do everything to help us win ball games.” Kevin Garnett scored 23 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for Boston, which got 16 points, nine rebounds and seven assists from Rajon Rondo and 12 points from Paul Pierce. Ray Allen shot just 1 for 7 from the floor for Boston, which was outscored by 10 in the first quarter and 11 in the third. “On the road, you can’t have two quarters of lulls,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers said.

Game 2 is Wednesday night in Miami. It’s the third straight year the Heat and Celtics have met in the playoffs, the third straight year James has seen his postseason path go through Boston as well — the first of those matchups coming in 2010, his final run with Cleveland. Each of those came in the first or second rounds, not this close to the NBA finals. And while both sides would say there’s a long way to go in this series, Game 1 winners have a decided edge in any best-of-seven, the conference final being no exception. In the most recent 10 postseasons, teams with 1-0 leads in conference finals have advanced 15 out of 20 times. One of the five instances of a team rallying from a one-game deficit was last year, when Miami ousted Chicago in five games. Last season’s Miami-Boston series ended with James scoring the final 10 points of Game 5, and the start of this year’s matchup had him putting on another offensive display. He had 13 points in the first quarter — two more than the entire Celtics roster — and Miami ran out to a 21-11 lead after the opening period. Garnett made three of his four shots in the quarter, while everyone else in Boston green was 2 for 16 from the floor. “They came to play,” Rivers said. “I mean Miami.” The 11 points matched the lowest output by any team in the opening quarter this postseason.

Red Sox pick up 7-4 Memorial Day win over Tigers BOSTON (AP) — Mike Aviles wanted to take advantage of his second chance, even though he wasn’t entirely sure he earned it. After an umpire’s mistake on what should have been the third strike, Aviles lined a single to center to spark a three-run second inning that gave the Boston Red Sox the lead for good in a 7-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Monday. “I got another swing, got another hit, one run scored there and we ended up scoring two more right after that,” Aviles said. “It helped us out, gave us momentum and we kept rolling from there.” Felix Doubront pitched six innings of four-hit ball, Ryan Sweeney had three hits after being activated from the disabled list and Jarrod Saltalamacchia homered for Boston. The victory was tainted by an injury to 2008 AL MVP Dustin Pedroia, who left in the fifth inning with a jammed right thumb. “He’ll probably have some tests,” Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said. “Right now I don’t think he could play tomorrow, if I was a betting man. But don’t bet on it.” Detroit played most of the game without manager Jim Leyland and third-base coach Gene Lamont, who were ejected after the umpires appeared to blow

the call on Aviles’ foul tip. Leyland argued with the umpires until they tossed him from the game, then erupted in the visitor’s clubhouse after it was over. “There shouldn’t have been a second-inning rally,” he said, his voice rising. “There were three outs. I’ve been in the game a long time. ... You guys need to write something and hold people accountable.” With two outs and a runner on second, Aviles swung at what would have been strike three. It was ruled a foul tip by plate umpire Jeff Nelson, and on appeal to first base ump Bill Welke the ball was determined to hit the dirt before catcher Gerald Laird could glove it. Replays appeared to show a clean swing and miss by Aviles, and Laird clearly caught the ball before it could hit the ground, meaning Aviles should have been out. Aviles lined an RBI single to center. Daniel Nava doubled him home and scored on Pedroia’s single to make it 4-1 before Adrian Gonzales hit an inningending groundout to first base. Doubront (5-2) gave up home runs to Gerald Laird and Delmon Young and just a pair of singles. He struck out six and walked one.

If you or your child participate in sports, there is a risk of injury to the teeth that is best managed by wearing a mouth guard. Mouth guards should always be worn for contact sports (hockey, football, etc.), and research in sports dentistry shows that wearing a mouth guard during noncontact sports that pose a risk of injury to the mouth is a wise thing to do (racketball or skateboarding, for instance). Just what will a mouth guard do for you? It will cushion any blow to your face that could result in dental injury. This will minimize the shock to your teeth, thereby lessening the chances of a chipped, broken or lost tooth. By absorbing the force of the impact, the mouth guard also helps protect against nerve damage to a tooth (which can result in the need for root canal therapy). It is typically worn to cover the upper teeth and custom-fitted by your dentist, which will allow for the most comfort regarding speech and breathing. Inexpensive one-size-fits-all “boil and bite” mouthguards are adequate for many people, but may have problems with fit and be uncomfortable to the point that they don’t get worn. It’s OK to try one, but if you can’t wear it comfortably you would be better off with a custom guard. Think of a mouth guard as one more essential piece of sports equipment needed to safely play the game. A properly fitted mouth guard can protect your smile and help save time and money in the long run. Are you and yours getting the protection you need in this area? Enjoy your sports safely…

Shepherd’s Hut offering classes on spinning yarn & weaving GILFORD — Joyce Keyser, owner of the Shepherd’s Hut Market located at Ramblin’ Vewe Sheep Farm, 637 Morrill Street in Gilford, has announced two opportunities for people who want to learn more about spinning yarn and weaving. She says that on June 2 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Ellen Gelotte and Marlene Witham will be demonstrating the drop spindle and the spinning wheel. “I’m pleased to have them come back to the market to demonstrate and teach a bit of what they know about this wonderful craft,” says Keyser. “Both ladies were with us last September for the School to Farm Program, when many area 4th graders were able to come to the farm to see various aspects of farming and learn a bit about where there food and in my case, wool, comes from and what is done with it.” Gelotte, a juried spinner with the League of NH Craftsmen, first became interested in spinning after visiting Strawberry Banke in Portsmouth with her children, and later took lessons at the Fiber Studio. She is a past president of NH Spinners and Dyers Guild. At the School to Farm Program she ably demonstrated the drop spindle and made lots of friends among the children. She will once again demonstrating the drop spindle, which twists wool roving on a spindle weighted at the bottom, middle or top by a circular object called a whorl.

Now Marlene reports “I am now spinning quite a bit and using the yarn for knitting socks and I even knit a sweater for myself this last winter. I seem to be drawn to fibers in many ways. I love the feel of the roving slipping and winding though my hands on to the bobbin on the spinning wheel.

Segment your life so you can focus on one important task at a time. Concentrate exclusively on what you’re doing, and put everything else on the other side of an imaginary wall. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You can count on yourself. You’re tougher and more resilient than you were, and you’re getting better all the time. The trials you’ve taken on keep you strong. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You want to get to a certain feeling. Being aware of what that feeling is will help you seek out the specific situation that will help you harness that emotion. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The reason you’re given so much work is that someone trusts you to get the job done. So instead of feeling put-upon or overloaded, you can be proud of the high level of faith that others have in you. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 29). There’s a revolution starting inside of you. You question things that have been ingrained in your behavior and thoughts for years. The new you finds more to be excited about, and motivation will be high throughout the year. You’ll form an alliance or sign a contract in July. August brings a different kind of work. Libra and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 3, 44, 18 and 20.



ARIES (March 21-April 19). Mystery and intrigue will pull you forward. You’re curious by nature, and one clue leads to another. You may not solve this one, but you’ll learn something valuable as you try. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You have managed well in some respect and will do well to remind yourself. Travel back in time to connect your awareness of the “past you” with the present, and apply what experience has taught you. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). A sense of humor is such a valuable asset that you’ll choose your friends and alliances today based on their potential to make you laugh and feel lighthearted and happy. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Problems tend to clump together. To sort out a mess, isolate a problem from the other problems around it. By fixing one thing, you just might fix everything. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Part of staying relevant is being proactive. You’ll sharpen your skills, even when there’s no apparent need of it. When the time comes, you’ll be ready. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your loved ones know that you love them even when they make the wrong decisions. You may have to show this kind of love again today, the kind where you hold back the urge to say “I told you so.” LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Authenticity will be the theme. You’ll find it easy to be true to yourself, to honor your preferences and to speak up when things aren’t going in a direction that’s comfortable to you.

Saturday’s Answer

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, May 29, 2012— Page 19

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Tuesday, May 29, the 150th day of 2012. There are 216 days left in the year. Today’s Highlights in History: On May 29, 1942, the movie “Yankee Doodle Dandy,” starring James Cagney as George M. Cohan, premiered at a war-bonds benefit in New York. Bing Crosby, the Ken Darby Singers and the John Scott Trotter Orchestra recorded Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas” in Los Angeles for Decca Records. On this date: In 1765, Patrick Henry denounced the Stamp Act before Virginia’s House of Burgesses. In 1790, Rhode Island became the 13th original colony to ratify the United States Constitution. In 1912, the ballet “L’Apres-midi d’un Faune” (The Afternoon of a Faun), with music by Claude Debussy, premiered in Paris with Vaslav Nijinsky dancing the title role. In 1917, the 35th president of the United States, John F. Kennedy, was born in Brookline, Mass. In 1932, World War I veterans began arriving in Washington to demand cash bonuses they weren’t scheduled to receive until 1945. In 1943, Norman Rockwell’s portrait of “Rosie the Riveter” appeared on the cover of The Saturday Evening Post. In 1953, Mount Everest was conquered as Edmund Hillary of New Zealand and Tensing Norgay of Nepal became the first climbers to reach the summit. In 1961, a couple in Paynesville, W.Va., became the first recipients of food stamps under a pilot program created by President John F. Kennedy. In 1973, Tom Bradley was elected the first black mayor of Los Angeles, defeating incumbent Sam Yorty. In 1985, 39 people were killed at the European Cup Final in Brussels, Belgium, when rioting broke out and a wall separating British and Italian soccer fans collapsed. In 1987, a jury in Los Angeles acquitted “Twilight Zone” movie director John Landis and four associates of involuntary manslaughter in the movie-set deaths of actor Vic Morrow and two child actors, seven-year-old Myca Dinh Le and six-year-old Renee Shin-Yi Chen, who were killed by a falling helicopter. One year ago: A week after Joplin, Mo., was nearly leveled by the deadliest tornado to strike the U.S in decades, President Barack Obama visited the city to offer hope to survivors and promises of help.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, May 29, 2012— Page 21


Dear Annie: My sister-in-law, “Kate,” has a son who is a year older than mine. For my husband’s sake, every time Kate comes to town, I tell her she’s welcome to stay with us. Kate doesn’t always behave herself. I try to blow off her offensive comments, but it’s hard. My husband says, “My sister is stupid. Don’t let her get to you.” But her last visit was the final straw. She asked whether my 2-year-old son is “normal” because he has a big head. Annie, he looks like his father, who is tall and broad-shouldered. So is my brother, who played high school sports. She asked this repeatedly, and each time, I calmly told her that his pediatrician says he’s perfectly fine. Then she had the gall to ask my husband whether our son was actually his. Kate also will make nasty remarks such as, “Did you serve bad bacon? It tastes funny,” or “You don’t wash your floor. It’s sticky.” I’d love to tell Kate exactly how I feel about her rude comments, but I know the consequences won’t be worth it. I already ignore her phone calls and reply only by text. I’m tired of crying to my husband over Kate’s nasty behavior. I can tell that he is getting irritated with me. What do I do? -- Ready To Explode in N.D. Dear Ready: First, stop complaining to your husband. It’s tiresome and accomplishes nothing positive. Instead, learn better ways to handle Kate. When she complains about your sticky floors, reply, “Oh, I’m so sorry. Here’s a mop.” If she dislikes the food, smile and tell her, “Sorry I can’t make what you like. Feel free to do the cooking.” When she insults your son’s size, nicely say, “He’s so athletic looking, like his father and uncle.” The trick is to remain wonderfully polite, sweet and perfectly innocent while you drive her nuts. It might help to understand that Kate says these things because she is jealous. We feel sorry for her.

Dear Annie: Please publish this letter to my friends and relatives who do not own computers: I don’t mind helping you, but there are rules: I am not going to research a term paper for your child. If I have printed out information, please store it wisely. I may not have saved it to the computer I am currently using. If you have access to the Internet, please look things up yourself before asking me. A dear relative recently became angry when I told her I no longer have the family tree information she wanted, nor did I have time to re-create the file. Also, paper and printer ink are expensive. I do freelance writing and editing and need my supplies for that. It would be nice if people would reimburse me for some of the expense or buy a pack of paper once in a while. -- Computer Geek Dear Geek: You ought to attach this letter to any work you do for others so they understand your rules. Those who ask for favors should not expect you to pay for the privilege. Dear Annie: “Lost My Appetite” better get used to being around diabetics unless she plans to lock herself up in the house forever. Type 1 diabetes is an epidemic, and people with the disease aren’t going to wait to eat. They need to time their insulin precisely. Doing it in the bathroom doesn’t always work because some bathrooms are disgusting and many don’t have a counter to put your supplies on. I think her friends will be thankful that “Lost” stays home. -- Sterling, Mass. Dear Sterling: We heard from a great many diabetics who took issue with “Lost’s” position. Watching someone inject insulin is not pleasant. However, when one has close friends or family members with diabetes, it requires that you put a lid on your sensitivities. Otherwise, simply show up later.

Belknap County Master Gardeners’ Plant Sale in Tilton on Saturday

TILTON — The annual Belknap County Master Gardeners’ Plant Sale will be held on Saturday June 2 starting at 9 a.m. at 452 School Street. Carefully potted perennials, herbs, grasses, and some annuals await visitors to the sale. All plants will be $5 each, with a maximum of ten plants per customer. There will also be garden art, books, magazines, and some tools. Each plant has a label with information about flower color and light needs. Master Gardeners will be available to assist and answer

questions buyers may have. From downtown Tilton, follow School Street for about two miles; the sale will be on the left. Look for the bright yellow sign. The proceeds from the plant sale will be used to fund Master Gardener projects throughout Belknap County. The Master Gardener Program is part of the UNH Cooperative Extension which has provided training to over 500 Master Gardeners who, in turn, have donated thousands of hours to communities in their counties.

THEATRE from page one reflected in Jewett’s stories, and the ways in which her regional portraits speak about both the essential New England character and universal experiences of geographic isolation, cultural insulation, and how individual identity is shaped and defined by community. The play combines excerpts from the company’s

original production based on “The Country of the Pointed Firs”, and “Dunnet Landing Stories”, with contextual remarks and audience discussion. The program is free and open to the public. Tea and cookies will be served. For more information, contact Mary Ahlgren or Maggie McCall at Hall Memorial Library at 2868971.

MALL FIRE from page 2 istry said on its official Twitter page. Another 17 people were injured, including four children, according to authorities. Most of those hurt were rescuers responding to the blaze. Witnesses earlier reported thick black smoke pouring from the ritzy mall around midday. Amateur photos and videos posted online showed firefighters rescuing victims by climbing on the roof. The Interior Ministry said the fire was extinguished hours later. The cause of the fire is under investigation. Thick smoke and heat hindered rescue efforts, as did a lack of floor plans and malfunctioning sprinkler systems, the ministry said on Twitter. Sheik Abdullah said all buildings in the country abide by safety requireServices ments, but a special committee will nonetheless be set up to monitor building safety standards. The Villaggio opened in 2006 and is one of Qatar’s most popular shopping and amusement destinations.
