GILFORD — With far fewer officers to patrol the state’s lakes and tidal waters than in past years, the Marine Patrol service is looking at how it will allocate resources as it responds to needs of boaters and other recreational enthusiasts this summer. Marine Patrol Lt. Tim Dun-
leavy said he is hoping the service will have a cadre of 47 full-time and seasonal officers by the time summer rolls around. The exact number will not be known until new seasonal officers actually complete their training. Seasonal officers make up a bulk of the Marine Patrol force, and Dunleavy is anticipating there will be 40 of them out on the waters this summer.
That number is approximately half what Marine Patrol had last summer, Dunleavy acknowledged. He said he will take into account the amount of boating traffic during peak periods, as well as calls for service and weather forecasts, in determining how Marine Patrol personnel will be assigned across the state. “We will also be reviewing how
we prioritize calls as they come in and which ones need an officer (to respond) right away,” he said. But he went on to stress the agency remains totally committed to providing for the safety of the boating public. Dunleavy said he expected that about 20-percent of the Marine Patrol force would be assigned to patrols on Lake see MARINE PATROL page 9

‘The Scream’ fetches $120M at auction
NEW YORK (AP) — One of the art world’s most recognizable images — Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” — sold Wednesday for a record $119,922,500 at auction in New York City. The 1895 artwork — a modern symbol of human anxiety — was sold at Sotheby’s. The buyer’s name was not released. The previous record for an artwork sold at auction was $106.5 million for Picasso’s “Nude, Green Leaves, and Bust,” sold by Christie’s in 2010. Munch’s image of a man holding his head and screaming under a streaked, blood-red sky is one of four versions by the Norwegian expressionist painter. The auctioned piece at Sotheby’s is the only one left in private hands. The image has become part of pop culture, “used by everyone from Warhol to Hollywood to cartoons to teacups and T-shirts,” said Michael Frahm of the London-based art advisory service firm Frahm Ltd. “Together with the Mona Lisa, it’s the most famous and recognized image in art history.” A buzz swept through the room when the artwork was presented for see PAINTING page 12

13 charged in hazing death of Florida A&M band member ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Thirteen people were charged Wednesday in one of the biggest college hazing cases ever prosecuted in the U.S., accused in the death of a Florida A&M University drum major who authorities say was mercilessly pummeled by fellow members of the marching band. The charges came more than five months after Robert Champion, 26, died aboard a chartered bus parked outside an Orlando hotel following a performance against a rival school. While the most sensational hazing cases have typically involved fraternities, sorori-
ties or athletic teams, the FAMU tragedy in November exposed a brutal tradition among marching bands at some colleges around the U.S. “The death ... is nothing short of an American tragedy,” said State Attorney Lawson Lamar. “No one should have expected that his college experience would include being pummeled to death.” Eleven defendants were charged with hazing resulting in death, a felony, and misdemeanor offenses that all together could bring nearly six years in prison. Two others face misdemeanor charges.
It was not immediately clear whether those charged were all students or whether they included faculty members or others involved in the road trip. By Wednesday afternoon, two students were in custody at the Leon County jail in Tallahassee: Rikki Wills, 24, and Caleb Jackson, 23. Both are charged with felony hazing resulting in death. Wills, who was also drum major, declined comment when reached by phone. No working phone number was available for Jackson. The names of the 11 others have see HAZING page 8
BEIJING (AP) — A cloud hung over annual talks between the United States and China on Thursday as a blind Chinese dissident who took refuge in the U.S. Embassy appealed to Washington for more help, saying from his hospital room in Beijing that he now fears for his family’s safety unless they are all spirited abroad. China already demanded an apology from the U.S. even before Chen
Guangcheng balked at a deal in which he would remain in his homeland. Now that he wants to leave, the case could overshadow talks in which Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner are to discuss foreign policy and economic issues with their Chinese counterparts. After six days holed up in the U.S. Embassy, as senior officials in Beijing
and Washington tussled over his fate, Chen left the compound’s protective confines Wednesday for a nearby hospital for treatment of a leg injury suffered in his escape. A shaken Chen told The Associated Press from his hospital room that Chinese authorities had warned he would lose his opportunity to be reunited with his family if he stayed longer in the embassy. see CHINA page 14
LONDON (AP) — The 17 countries that use the euro are facing the highest unemployment rates in the history of the currency as recession once again spreads across Europe, pressuring leaders to focus less on austerity and more on stimulating growth. Unemployment in the eurozone rose by
169,000 in March, official figures showed Wednesday, taking the rate up to 10.9 percent — its highest level since the euro was launched in 1999. The seasonally adjusted rate was up from 10.8 percent in February and 9.9 percent a year ago and contrasts sharply with the picture in the U.S., where
unemployment has fallen from 9.1 percent in August to 8.2 percent in March. Spain had the highest rate in the eurozone, 24.1 percent — and an alarming 51.1 percent for people under 25. Austerity has been the main prescription see EUROPE page 8

In Arkansas, 2 women claim NFL great Junior Seau found dead of apparent suicide a leg after dropping a ball carrier or quarterback. OCEANSIDE, Calif. (AP) — Junior Seau, a homediscarded $1M lottery ticket grown “It’s a sad thing. It’s hard to understand,” said superstar who was the fist-pumping, emoBEEBE, Ark. (AP) — When she plucked a winning lottery ticket out of the trash, Sharon Jones’ luck changed instantly. The $1 million prize let her pay off debts, give thousands of dollars to her children and buy a gleaming new pickup truck. But now her jackpot is in jeopardy. A judge ruled this week that the money belongs to another woman, who says she threw the ticket away after a lottery machine incorrectly told her it was a loser. The Arkansas Lottery Commission insists there are no problems with its equipment. “Why does she have the right to come back after she’s already thrown it away and say, ‘Oh no. Now that it is a winner, I want the money?’” said Jones’ husband, William, who was laid off last year after working in construction. Sharon Jones claimed the $1 million prize last July, turning in a scratch-off “Diamond Dazzler” ticket that the other woman, Sharon Duncan, said she purchased earlier at the Super 1 Stop convenience store in Beebe, about 35 miles northeast of Little Rock. Duncan told a judge she discarded the ticket after an electronic scanner told her it was “not a winner.” “And then the next thing you know, 10 months later, you’re fighting for something that was trash,” William Jones said. Years ago, Sharon Jones quit her job washing dishes at a cafe in nearby Searcy to tend to her father-in-law as he was dying from a lung disease. She often collected discarded lottery tickets because they can qualify for secondary prizes. What used to be her father-in-law’s bedroom now contains three large plastic bins full of thousands of old tickets — and a copy of the winning ticket. Jones discovered the ticket was a winner when see LOTTERY page 4
N.H. Senate kills pot decriminalization bill
CONCORD (AP) — The Senate has rejected a bill that would have decriminalized possession of a small amount of marijuana in New Hampshire. The Senate voted without debate Wednesday to kill the House-passed bill that made possessing under half an ounce of marijuana punishable by a fine in some cases. A first offense would have been a violation punishable by a $250 fine. The second would have been $500. Subsequent offenses would have been misdemeanors subject to a year of jail time and a $1,000 fine. Offenders under 21 would also have been ordered to take a drug awareness program. All offenses are currently misdemeanors punishable by up to a $2,000 fine and a year in jail. Gov. John Lynch had promised to veto the measure.
Shot that killed Maloney may have come from basement window PORTSMOUTH (AP) — The shot that killed Greenland police chief Michael Maloney during a drug raid and firefight may have been fired from the front window in the basement, new court documents show. A search warrant affidavit released Wednesday says Cullen Mutrie fired on four drug task force detectives immediately after they kicked in his front door when he did not respond to their knocks. The warrant states that gunfire later came from a basement window on the front side of the house. The bodies of Mutrie and girlfriend Brittany Tibbetts were found in the basement. Investigators say Mutrie shot Tibbetts before killing himself. Attorney General Michael Delaney said Tuesday that Maloney helped four wounded officers into vehicles. He said Maloney was shot once in the head while crouched behind his cruiser.
tional leader of the San Diego Chargers for 13 years, was found shot to death at his home Wednesday morning in what police said appeared to be a suicide. He was 43. Police Chief Frank McCoy said Seau’s girlfriend reported finding him unconscious with a gunshot wound to the chest and lifesaving efforts were unsuccessful. A gun was found near him, McCoy said. Police said no suicide note was found and they didn’t immediately know who the gun was registered to. Seau’s death in Oceanside, in northern San Diego County, stunned the region he represented with almost reckless abandon. The same intensity that got the star linebacker ejected for fighting in his first exhibition game helped carry the Chargers to their only Super Bowl, following the 1994 season. A ferocious tackler, he’d leap up, pump a fist and kick out
Bobby Beathard, who as Chargers general manager took Seau out of Southern California with the fifth pick overall in the 1990 draft. “He was really just a great guy. If you drew up a player you’d love to have the opportunity to draft and have on the team and as a teammate, Junior and Rodney (Harrison), they’d be the kind of guys you’d like to have.” Quarterback Stan Humphries recalled that Seau did everything at the same speed, whether it was practicing, lifting weights or harassing John Elway. “The intensity, the smile, the infectious attitude, it carried over to all the other guys,” said Humphries, who was shocked that Seau is now the eighth player from the ‘94 Super Bowl team to die. Seau’s mother appeared before reporters outside the former player’s house, weeping uncontrollably. see SEAU page 5

Parks & Rec Commission approves circus big-top returning to Memorial Field By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — The Parks and Recreation Commission last night unanimously approved the request of the Main Street Initiative to host a July return of the Kelly Miller Circus to Memorial Field in the South End. The alliance of downtown businesses had on Tuesday night agreed to replace American Legion Post No. 1 as the big-top’s local sponsor. John Moriarity, president of the Main Street Initiative, expressed his appreciation to the commission for hastily convening a special meeting to consider the request. He explained that the group has formed a committee to manage its sponsorship of the circus, which will be chaired by Don Vachon, who brought the event to the city last year, and Drew Seneca of the Downtown Deli. He said that Memorial FIeld was the preferred site because “it has proven successful and is located downtown, which is the focus
of our efforts.” Commissioner Mitch Hamel sought assurances that the field would be restored after the event. Vachon said that the circus has accepted responsibility for repairing any damage to the playing surface. Kevin Dunleavy, director of the Parks and Recreation Department, noted that last year the lack of rainfall limited the extent of the damage. Apart from the 150-foot by 150-foot big top with seating for 1,100 people, the circus travels in more than 30 vehicles and includes more than 30 animals, including three elephants, five tigers, four camels, a zebra, two llamas, two horses, eight ponies and seven dogs. “With your approval we’re prepared to start printing posters and moving forward,” Moriarity told the commissioners. Following the vote, chairman Jeff Pattison turned to Moriarity, Seneca and Vachon to remark “you’ve got yourselves a circus.”

Brady Sullivan’s Langley Cove development plans back before Planning Board By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — Nearly eight years after originally proposing a large residential development at Langley Cove on Weirs Boulevard and a year after the Planning Board rejected its last plan for the project, Brady Sullivan Properties of Manchester will present a fresh proposal to the Technical Review Committee when it meets next week. Originally, in 2004, Brady Sullivan proposed building 375 housing units on an elongated 84-acre tract marked by extensive wetlands and steep slopes that straddles Langley Brook and parallels Weirs Boulevard. The Planning Board expressed concerns about the density of the project, which would lead to increased stormwater runoff, soil erosion and traffic congestion and ultimately rejected the plan in 2009. The company returned a year later with a plan for 291 units. All the units and parking would be developed on 20.3 acres of the 66.6-acre site, leaving the more than two thirds of the property north of Langley Brook, which consists of extensive wetlands, undeveloped. Much of the area to be developed consists of steep slopes. In 2010 the City Council adopted an ordinance regulating development on steep slopes. The ordinance will apply to the project. Since the project was first conceived, Brady Sullivan purchased Paugus Woods, a 90-unit residential community abutting the Langley Cove property to the east. The acquisition enabled the two properties to be linked, providing the second means of access and egress from Langley Cove that the Planning Board required. The plan called for the 291 units to be divided between apartments and townhouses. Two buildings, each with 36 apartments, another three-story building with 78 apartments and a clubhouse would be constructed on the high ground to the east, near the boundary with Paugus Woods. Along with four single-family homes and four duplexes, the townhouses would be strung along either side of a loop road between the apartment buildings and private homes along the boulevard. Without reducing the number of units, the latest plan seeks to address environmental concerns raised by the Planning Board, especially the management and treatment of stormwater. Meanwhile, the impact of the project on the volume of traffic on Weirs Boulevard and White Oaks Road has yet to be measured. LOTTERY from page 3 the state’s database wouldn’t let her enter the ticket number. The state Lottery Commission said it is confident its machines work properly. “We’ve never had a report of a mis-scanned ticket,” spokeswoman Julie Baldridge said. William Jones said the couple was living paycheck-to-paycheck before hitting the jackpot. After the two claimed their prize money, they looked to buy a house to replace the ranch-style home they live in now. “That was one of the first things on our agenda,” he said, explaining that their plans all “got shattered” when ownership of the ticket was disputed. A judge issued a restraining order — but only after the Joneses spent some of the money. The two now have about $490,000 remaining from see next page
Drive-thru Aroma Joes Coffee to be built on Union Ave. lot that’s been vacant since 2002 fire BY MICHAEL KITCH LACONIA — Aroma Joes Coffee, with 13 outlets in New Hampshire and Maine, plans to open a drivethru outlet at 644 Union Avenue, the vacant lot that last housed the Back Water Bar & Grill until it burned in December 2002. The 0.52-acre lot was acquired by ADSC Real Estate, LLC of 91 Bisson Avenue, which is the address of Bonette, Page & Stone Corporation, for $200,000 in 2011 and was most recently assessed at $120,900. Aroma Joes Coffee proposes to build a 384-square foot building toward the rear of the lot with an entrances and exits from and to Union Avenue on both sides of the property. A so-called “rain garden,” or landscaped area, at the front of the lot between the driveways will capture rainfall to reduce run-off from the site. Three parking spaces on the property would be reserved for employees.
The Laconia outlet would be strictly a drive-thru operation. Aroma Joes Coffee has drive-thru service at all 13 of its locations with adjoining coffee houses only in Somersworth and Sanford, Maine. In New Hampshire the company operates at three locations in Rochester and two in Somersworth as well as in Dover and Barrington. It has six locations in Maine, two in Sanford along with outlets in Portland, Biddeford, Berwick and South Berwick. Aroma Joes Coffee not only offers coffee and espresso but also flavored iced coffees, energy drinks and baked goods beneath the slogan “it’s wicked good” and the promise of personal service with “No Intercoms, No Mistakes, No Attitudes.” Aroma Joes Coffee will present its proposal to the Technical Review Committee (TRC), consisting of representatives of city departments, on May 9 in anticipation of appearing before the Planning Board in June.
SEAU from page 3 “I don’t understand ... I’m shocked,” Luisa Seau cried out. Her son gave no indication of a problem when she spoke to him by phone earlier this week, she said. “He’s joking to me, he called me a ‘homegirl,’” she said. Seau’s death follows the suicide last year of former Chicago Bears player Dave Duerson, who also shot himself in the chest. In October 2010, Seau survived a 100-foot plunge down a seaside cliff in his SUV, hours after he was arrested for investigation of domestic violence at the Oceanside home he shared with his girlfriend. The woman had told authorities that Seau assaulted her during an argument. There was no evidence of drugs or alcohol involved in the crash and Seau told authorities he fell asleep while driving. He sustained minor injuries. “I just can’t imagine this, because I’ve never seen Junior in a down frame of mind,” Beathard said. “He was always so upbeat and he would keep people up. He practiced the way he played. He made practice fun. He was a coach’s dream. He was an amazing
guy as well as a player and a person. This is hard to believe.” Seau’s ex-wife, Gina, told the UnionTribune San Diego that he texted her and each of their three children separate messages: “I love you.” “We’re all in shock,” she said. “We’re beyond sad and beyond shocked. The kids and I are just huddled together at home. There is no way to make sense of this.” Seau, who played in the NFL for parts of 20 seasons, is the eighth member of San Diego’s lone Super Bowl team who has died, all before the age of 45. Lew Bush, Shawn Lee, David Griggs, Rodney Culver, Doug Miller, Curtis Whitley and Chris Mims are the others. Seau’s also is among a few recent, unexpected deaths of NFL veterans. Seau, however, is not known to have been a plaintiff in the concussion litigation. When Humphries joined the Chargers in a 1992 trade, he said it was obvious Seau was “the person who had the most energy, the most excited, the guy who tried to rally everybody.” Humphries said Seau “brought out a lot of youngness” in older players.

from preceding page the $680,000 they received after taxes. They say they gave tens of thousands of dollars to their children and about $4,500 to a relative who has a child with Down syndrome. One of Duncan’s attorneys said his client isn’t ready to talk about the lottery ticket yet. Another lawyer, James “Red” Morgan, argued in court that she simply made a mistake by throwing away a $1 million ticket and that the only right she willingly parted with was to enter the ticket for the possibility of a secondary prize. White County Judge Thomas Hughes concluded that Duncan bought the winning ticket, even though lottery records and store security video didn’t synch up to the precise timing of the purchase. He ruled that Duncan never abandoned her right to claim the winnings.
“The $1 million was never found money,” the judge said Tuesday. Lottery officials investigated Jones’ account of finding the ticket and were satisfied with it, Lottery Security Chief Lance Huey testified. Attorneys for the Joneses plan to appeal the judge’s decision. In the meantime, the remaining money is in limbo. Asked what the pair would do if they had to turn over a full $1 million, Jones laughed. “I hope I don’t have to answer that question,” he said before confiding that there’s no way they could pay back the money. Meanwhile, at the convenience store, signs tout the store’s fried chicken and remind passers-by: “Winning Million Dollar Lottery Ticket Sold Here.” “We’ve still got each other,” Jones said. “We’re going to live regardless.”

Elizabeth Warren: Native American? Elizabeth Warren is the Harvard law professor running for Senate in Massachusetts as a Democratic populist-progressive champion. But don’t call her “Elizabeth Warren.” Call her “Pinocchio-hontas,” “Chief Full-of-Lies,” “Running Joke” or “Sacaja-whiner.” Warren has claimed questionable Native American minority status for years to reap career “diversity” benefits. Now, Cherokee leaders, campaign rival GOP Sen. Scott Brown and an army of Twitter detractors have called her out for gaming the racial-preference system. Live by identity politics, die by identity politics. The Boston Herald reported last Friday that Harvard administrators “prominently touted Warren’s Native American background ... in an effort to bolster their diversity hiring record in the ‘90s as the school came under heavy fire for a faculty that was then predominantly white and male.” When asked for proof of her tribal heritage, Warren’s campaign first denied that she had ever bragged about it. But from 1986 to 1995, Warren listed herself as a minority professor in a professional law school directory. While the Democrat’s team scrounged for evidence over the weekend, Warren stalled for time by asserting that she didn’t need to provide documentation because family “lore” backed her up. Someone told her a story, you see, and magically conferred native status upon her. Through narrative, all things are possible! (Notorious “fake Indian” Ward Churchill is wondering why he didn’t think of this alibi first before the University of Colorado at Boulder fired him for academic fraud.) On Tuesday, Warren finally discovered a great-great-great-grandmother supposedly “certified as Cherokee” and a random cousin somehow involved with a museum that preserves Native American art. There’s also a great-great-grandfather somewhere in Warren’s dusty genealogical records who spent time on a Cherokee reservation. Because walking a mile in someone else’s moccasins is now just as good as being born in them.
Native American officials aren’t buying Warren’s 1/10,000th Cherokee claim. Suzan Shown Harjo, a former executive director of the National Congress of American Indians, told the Herald: “If you believe you are these things then that’s fine and dandy, but that doesn’t give you the right to claim yourself as Native American.” When Brown raised the issue, Warren and her progressive strategists traded in the candidate’s Native American blanket for a War on Women victim’s mask — because asking a privileged Harvard prof to verify her minority claims is sexist, of course. “If Scott Brown has questions about Elizabeth Warren’s wellknown qualifications,” her campaign manager railed, “he ought to ask them directly instead of hiding behind the nasty insinuations of his campaign and trying to score political points. Once again, the qualifications and ability of a woman are being called into question by Scott Brown, who did the same thing with the Supreme Court nomination of Elena Kagan. It’s outrageous.” Once again, the left’s incurable love affair with oppression chic is on naked display. It’s an Olympic competition of the haves to show their have-not cred. Just a few weeks ago, it was the White House tokenizing Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor — the “wise Latina” — as “disabled” in an official graph promoting the administration’s minority hiring practices. What’s her disability? She has diabetes. No, it’s not debilitating, nor does it fall anywhere near the definition of disability under federal law. But like their friend Elizabeth Warren, the Ivy League social engineers at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. just couldn’t help embellishing their “diversity” record to score political correctness points. Birds of a manufactured feather flock together. (Syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin is the daughter of Filipino Immigrants.

Far too often we are subjected to halftruths, fear mongering, misrepresentations of the actual facts, as in this case, or skillfully crafted creations of high paid, “spin doctors,” put forth as gospel truth. This morning you provided a welcome and refreshing change. Kay M. Anderson Laconia
LETTERS Austerity in Wisconsin & N.J. working about as well as in Greece To the editor, Thanks to Denise Terravechia for once again reminding people that Hitler abolished trade unions as every right winger wishes to do. Mussolini and Franco did the same. Fascists hate trade unions because fascism is technically “corporatism” and that marriage of the state with industrial giants demands that people are made impotent in the workplace. Right wingers prefer authoritarian dictatorships in the workplace. In right wing world, jobcreators are infallible monarchs. Popes. Wisconsin is where great things happened for workers rights in the early 20th century. And yet again, Wisconsin is where a century of progress came under attack by Governor Scooter Walker and his “handlers”, the Koch Brothers. Walker first attacked collective bargaining rights as soon as he was sworn in. None of this was campaigned on. This willful deceit will end up costing him his job. Then he went after women’s rights, Planned Parenthood, “badger care” (child health care) and education in order to give tax breaks to corporate interests and the top earners. Last week, Walker repealed the 2009 Equal Pay Enforcement Act. Now, if a woman is being discriminated against by being paid less than a man for the same job, she has no recourse. This guy does EVERTHING wrong! What is with these people attacking workers, women, families, healthcare and equality? Do they hate people? Are they functioning sociopaths? Freedom-sucking sociopaths! Right, Russ? With his back on the floor, Walker can now lay claims that he has
brought Wisconsin to the very bottom in the jobs department. 50th! How is that AUSTERITY working out for ya Scooter? Knowing the end is in sight, Walker has asked Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey to visit Wisconsin. This is a clown car worth watching. Last month alone, New Jersey lost 11,000 jobs in the private sector. Here we have two examples of how NOT to run a state! How does one failed governor help another failed governor? While the national economy is gradually improving and adding a quarter million jobs a month, austerity states like Wisconsin and New Jersey are losing jobs. Austerity is really bad for business, taking $1.50 out of the economy for every dollar in spending cuts. That is just the opposite of what stimulus spending does. The same thing is happening in Europe. Those with harsh austerity measures are spinning their wheels in the mud. Nations like Germany and Poland which pumped money into new technologies and infrastructure were not hit hard. Poland didn’t even have a recession because it invested in Poland to pump up the economy. Keynes was right! Britain’s David Cameron is one of those leaders that tries the same failed policies over and over because they are party dogma. Brits can now blame austerity for the first double dip recession since the 1970s. Austerity is like Anemia. Von Mises and Hayek were naive. Voting Republican is like bringing an army of termites home to do some carpentry projects. James Veverka Tilton
Gilmanton superintendent’s sweet deal is far cry from ‘no benefits’ To the editor, In reply to the recent article by Mike Mortensen, published in the Laconia Daily Sun on April 26: we found several factual discrepancies with the major item being Superintendent Fauci’s benefits. Renee Kordas, the School Board chair, was quoted as saying that Superintendent Fauci will receive no benefits. However, the School Board meeting minutes from the April 10 vote on his new contract state the following:, “salary rate of $60,000 for 104 days, 25 days of vaca-
tion and/or sick time, three days each bereavement and personal time, no health or dental insurance and professional development and dues will be paid for by the district”. A stipend of approximately $3,500 will be paid in lieu of health and dental benefits was listed in the meeting but was not mentioned in the meeting minutes. Most workers receive zero benefits when employed part-tìme. Apparently paid vacation and days off should not be considered benefits. see next page

LETTERS $2.16-million would be better spent ﬁxing Laconia’s streets
This is great country; good will always prevail if we work hard
To the editor, I do not understand why the Laconia City Council wants to buy the former Laconia State School property. I can understand buying the Robbie Mills Complex rather than leasing it but not the rest of the land. I have not see any plans for how this land might be used. And if the $2.16-million is such a good price why hasn’t a private developer expressed interest in the land. If the state does accept the state’s offer, does this mean the city and taxpayers like myself will have to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to demolish the contaminated buildings and get rid of the rubble. And what about the facility across the road from the baseball field. It houses some of the worst sexual offenders in the state. This facility was never moved when the state closed the prison. State
To the editor, Land of the free because of the BRAVE! I capitalized brave because we all are here in the first place due to some brave men and woman. They came on a dangerous voyage and they did not have permission from Native Americans to take their land. So I’m a little confused by all the outrage that I read in many articles about people from south of the border who want a better life. They come here and do the jobs that the “good American” sitting at home watching the Kardashians won’t do. Also since we seem to be so busy defunding our schools lets educate ourselves. Puerto Rico, among other territories that do not speak English as a first language, are part of the USA. Before we take the lazy way out and blame the lack of jobs, security, and crime on immigrants, we need to remember that we are all immigrants, or descended from immigrants, and we are ruining our country more than a few immigrants crossing the border could ever do. Look at Congress and our state Legislature. The people there are a greater threat to our democracy and our jobs than the immigrants that are a handy scapegoat. Someday we will be able to live in a place where we will be judged by what we do, not by a color scale. After the immigration issue becomes old news, who will be targeted next? Try to put yourself in someone else’s shoes. Sup-
correction officials have been very closed mouth about this facility. You can see it if you drive down that road. It is a complex of white buildings surrounded by steel fence which must be about 15 feet high. I believe it is called Green Street. I hope the state refuses the city’s offer. The money the council is willing to pay for this land and for which council members have not announce how it might be used, could be better spent fixing up city roads. I agree with Ward 4 Councilor Brenda Baer as to why she would not vote for this purchase. The does already own a lot of land which is not taxed. This includes a small parcel near to my home which is overgrown and disgusting to look at. The city has never done anything to clean it up in the past 25 years. Gordon D. King Laconia
Local stores should be ashamed to be selling synthetic pot To the editor, To all the stores that sell K3, Everest, Chill Spice or any other form of synthetic pot: You should be ashamed of yourselves. Do you have any idea what you are doing to our children? Do you know the damage you are helping to inflict? How do you sleep at night or look yourselves in the mirror? You are selling synthetic pot to kids under the guise that it is legal. Legal or not, this stuff is 10 times more addicting than pot. This stuff is dangerous. It severely alters their chemistry. It makes them violent. It makes them moody. Some kids get suicidal. You are helping to destroy kids lives. You are helping to destroy families. Some kids have overdosed. This stuff is more dangerous in my opinion that some drugs because it is legal. The kids feel they are doing nothing wrong. It does not take much
to get addicted. It does not take much to get hooked. Parents are doing all they can to keep their families safe and healthy. We try to instill in them that doing drugs in wrong. But this stuff is legal and they do not look at it as doing drugs. They do not realize what it is doing to them. The DEA cannot get ahead of manufacturers. The dirty manufacturers change the control every time the federal government makes a form of this illegal, thereby making the new version legal. But you can help, you can stop selling it. You can cut the supply. You can help keep our kids safe. Our town has banned the substance, but it is still nearby, in Laconia and other nearby towns. Do the right thing! Stop the destruction of your youth. Help us help our children. Christine McNamee Gilford
SB-361 is setback for full-court press against Northern Pass To the editor, When the N.H. House Science and Technology Committee held a hearing on SB-361, I expressed concern because, as a strong opponent of Northern Pass, I thought enacting this bill would slow down the work necessary to keep this project out of our state and, as a legislator, I knew procedural pitfalls were out there. SB-361 creates a commission to study the feasibility of burying these transmission lines along existing transportation corridors. The fact of the matter is, however, that such a commission was already established under a bill already signed into law by Governor Lynch. And that commission, with its members already selected, was scheduled to begin work on April 14. But SB-361 repealed that from preceding page Most of what was written in the article tries to put positive spin on a questionable decision. This is an example of the superintendent controlling the School Board rather than the School Board looking out for the public. Joanne Gianni Gilmanton Iron Works
commission to create a different one on the same topic. Nevertheless, the House Science Committee sent the bill on to the House floor where we passed it last Wednesday. The problem for those of us opposed to the Northern Pass project is that the bill has now been referred to another committee — the House Transportation Committee — for another hearing. So the work of the commission cannot begin for an even longer period of time. This is exactly what I was worried about. I am extremely disappointed that the work of the commission already created by current law could not have gotten under way in a timely fashion. Every means possible should be available to this state to continue the full-court press against any forward movement on the Northern Pass project. A great opportunity to keep the pressure on has been delayed, and a great opportunity for the commission’s work to begin has been missed. Rep. Suzanne Smith Grafton, District 7 Plymouth & Hebron Hebron
pose you happened to be born across the border, and knew that on the other side, just a few miles from where you were born, there was an opportunity to provide your family with a better life and a real future? Would you go for it or let it slip past? Would you watch your family struggle with poverty, or sell drugs and work for cartels in order to just make it from day to day with no expectation that tomorrow will be any better? We will never know because we weren’t born on the other side of the border. If we continue this hypocrisy we will have no chance to remain the number one nation. Other countries will benefit from the dreams and hard work and creativity of immigrants. Just like America used to do. Why does it seem that the work ethic is now found mostly in those who are new to this country? It’s time to rededicate ourselves to education, work, and to claiming a share of the American dream. Only you can stop yourself. To my fellow Latinos: keep on working hard. This country is a great country, and good will always prevail if we work hard. President Obama spoke of the attitude we need to bring to our communities. “But what we can do, as flawed as we are, is still see God in other people, and do our best to help them find their own grace. That’s what I strive to do, that’s what I pray to do every day”. Carlos Cardona Laconia
Obamacare greatly improves coverage for mental health care To the editor I am submitting this because of a letter in The Laconia Daily Sun by John P. Rogers of Gilford. Thank you John. Mental health issues are part of our daily lives. Probably mental health issues have affected you, one of your family members, one of your friends or just someone you have heard about. Until Obamacare, most health insurance plans drastically restricted the amount of coverage you could receive for mental health care. Co-pays and deductibles were high and ceiling limits were low. Many people with mental health problems were not able
to afford care or had very limited care. Under the Affordable Health Care Act, mental health benefits must be provided at the same level as medical and surgical benefits. In other words, many more people with mental health problems are going to get the help that they need. According to an article in the Foster’s Daily Democrat dated January 16, 2011, this provision under the Affordable Care Plan would cover about 485,000 people in New Hampshire alone.

If ﬁre chief won’t move to Tilton-Northﬁeld, let’s ﬁnd a new one To the editor, Tilton-Northfield Fire Fighters Association gave the commissioners a letter regarding the uncomfortable position they are in due to the residency issue with the chief and their support for the chief — their leader. The chief has put you in this position by making his desire to change the terms of his letter of employment that he agreed to when he was hired a public issue to gather public support in his favor. You are looking for a quick resolu-
tion because this is making your job uncomfortable, instead of asking the commissioners to change their policy why don’t you ask our chief to support you and our communities and abide by the letter of employment he signed. If the chief is adamant he will not move to the district, the commissioners should start advertising. I am sure there are plenty of qualified firefighters that would like a chance to live in our community and be our chief. Lisa Swancott Northfield

Calif. student forgotten in cell for 4-days recalls hallucinations, suing DEA for $20M
SAN DIEGO (AP) — A college student picked up in a drug sweep in California was never arrested, never charged and should have been released. Instead he was forgotten in a holding cell for four days and says he had to drink his own urine to stay alive. Without food, water or access to a toilet, Daniel Chong began hallucinating on the third day. He told The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday that he saw little Japanese-style cartoon characters that told him to dig into the walls to find water. Chong tore apart the plastic lining on the walls. “I ripped the walls and waited for the room to flood for some reason,” said the 23-year-old University of California, San Diego, student, three days after he left the hospital where he was treated for dehydration and kidney failure. “I can’t explain my hallucinations too well because none of them make sense.” Later he added, “I felt like I was completely losing my mind.” Four days later, agents opened the
door on a fluke and found him covered in his own feces, Chong said. Chong’s attorneys filed a $20 million claim Wednesday against the Drug Enforcement Administration, saying his treatment constitutes torture under U.S. and international law. “He nearly died,” said Chong’s lawyer, Eugene Iredale. “If he had been there another 12 to 24 hours, he probably would have died.” The five-page notice, a required precursor to a lawsuit, was sent to the DEA’s chief counsel in Washington and cites damages for pain and suffering, future medical and psychiatric treatment, and loss of future earnings. The $20 million figure refers to the maximum Chong and his lawyers would seek. The top DEA agent in San Diego apologized Wednesday for Chong’s treatment and promised an investigation into how his agents could have forgotten about him. The incident stands out as one of the worst cases of its kind, said Thomas Beauclair, deputy director of the National Corrections Institute, a
HAZING from page 2 not been released. Jackson was serving probation for a felony battery charge, according to state and local records. He was arrested in 2009 by Tallahassee Community College police for battery and resisting without violence and arrested again by Tallahassee police a year later, according to county jail records. Champion had bruises on his chest, arms, shoulder and back and died of internal bleeding, Lamar said. Witnesses told emergency dispatchers that the drum major was vomiting before he was found unresponsive aboard the bus. The prosecutor gave no motive for the beating. But witnesses said Champion might have been targeted because he opposed the routine hazing that went on in the marching
band or because he was gay, according his family’s attorney. Legal experts had predicted more serious charges, such as manslaughter or second-degree murder. Champion’s mother, Pam, said she was glad charges were brought but disappointed they weren’t more severe. “I thought it should send a harsher message,” she said. Lamar said prosecutors didn’t have the evidence to bring more serious charges. “The testimony obtained to date does not support a charge of murder, in that it does not contain the elements of murder,” he said. “We can prove participation in hazing and a death. We do not have a blow or a shot or a knife thrust that killed Mr. Champion. It is an aggregation of things which exactly fit the Florida statute as written by the Legislature.”
federal agency that provides training and technical assistance to corrections agencies. “That is pretty much unheard of,” he said, noting that, in his 40-year career, he has heard of instances where people were forgotten overnight but not for days. A federal law enforcement official familiar with DEA operations said the agency’s protocols require that cells be checked each night. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the matter, said the cell where Chong was held is not intended for overnight stays because it does not have a toilet. U-T San Diego was the first to report Chong’s ordeal. Chong told the AP that he went to his friend’s house April 20 to get high. Every April 20, pot smokers light up in a counterculture ritual held around the country at 4:20 p.m. Chong slept there that night and, around 10:50 a.m. the next day, agents stormed into the house as Chong said he was rolling a joint at the kitchen
table. The raid netted 18,000 ecstasy pills, other drugs and weapons. Nine people, including Chong, were taken into custody, according to the DEA. Chong was moved from cell to cell for several hours and then questioned. He said agents then told him that he was not a suspect and would be released shortly. He signed some paperwork, was put in handcuffs and sent back to the holding cell, a 5-by10-foot windowless room. The room is one of five cells at the facility. The only view in was through a tiny peephole in the door. He said he could hear the muffled voices of agents and a toilet flushing. As the hours dragged into days, he said he kicked and screamed as loud as he could. At one point, he ripped a piece of his jacket off with his teeth and shoved it under the door, hoping someone would spot it and free him. Chong said he ingested a white powder that he found in the cell. Agents later identified it as methamphetamine. Chong said he ingested it to survive.
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — A deeply tanned New Jersey mother accused of causing skin burns to her young daughter by taking her into a tanning booth pleaded not guilty Wednesday to a child endangerment charge, and the tanning salon’s owner appeared to corroborate her story. Patricia Krentcil faces a seconddegree child endangerment charge. Through her attorney, she pleaded not guilty in Newark Municipal Court on Wednesday morning. Krentcil is free on $2,500 cash bond. Before Wednesday’s court hearing, Krentcil, whose skin has a deep bronze color from regular visits to the tanning salon, called the accusation a lie. “It’s all made up,” she said. She told The Associated Press her daughter, who was 5 at the time of the alleged incident in mid-April and has since turned 6, got sunburned by being outside on an unseasonably warm day. She said her daughter, however, had mentioned to school offi-
cials when she complained of itching that she had been to a tanning salon with her mother. Krentcil had told various TV stations her daughter was in the room at the salon but not in the stand-up tanning booth. The owner of City Tropics Salon in Nutley, who only identified himself as Anthony, said employees who were there on the day in question told him the girl remained outside with her father and brother and didn’t go into the tanning booth while Krentcil was inside. He said a sign is posted in the salon that refers to New Jersey state law barring anyone under 14 from using a tanning salon. “I would never harm a child,” he said. “I have seven kids of my own. It’s just ridiculous.” Krentcil’s attorney, John Caruso, said outside court that she will be exonerated, because the evidence will show the child never entered the booth.

EUROPE from page 2 across Europe for dealing with a debt crisis that’s afflicted the continent for nearly three years and has raised the specter of the breakup of the single currency. Three countries — Greece, Ireland and Portugal — have already required bailouts because of unsustainable levels of debt. Eight eurozone countries, including Greece, Spain and the Netherlands, have seen their economies shrink for two straight quarters or more, the common definition of a recession. Economies are contracting across the eurozone as governments cut spending and raise taxes to reduce deficits. That has prompted economists to urge European Union policymakers to dial back on short-term budget-cutting and focus on stimulating long-term growth.
“The question is how long EU leaders will continue to pursue a deeply flawed strategy in the face of mounting evidence that this is leading us to social, economic and political disaster,” said Sony Kapoor, managing director of Re-Define, an economic think-tank and policy advisory company. In a nod to shifting attitudes about austerity, European Central Bank president Mario Draghi recently called for a “growth pact” in Europe to work alongside the “fiscal pact” that has placed so much importance on controlling government spending. Bailout fears have intensified in recent months as Spain, Italy and other governments face rising borrowing costs on bond markets, a sign that investors are nervous about the size of their debts relative to their economic output.

Rt 3, Weirs Beach • 366-2110 DARTS A New Hampshire Marine Patrol boat accompanies the M/S Mt. Washington during its shakedown cruise as it leaves Center Harbor Bay and heads out onto Lake Winnipesaukee. (Roger Amsden photo for the Laconia Daily Sun)
MARINE PATROL from page one Winnipesaukee, the state’s largest lake. The waterborne patrol force is responsible for enforcing boating laws and responding to emergencies on all state lakes and ponds, as well as the Seacoast tidal waters and up to three miles from the state coastline, and even out to the Isles of Shoals. Officers patrol larger lakes, such as Winnipesaukee and Squam, daily. Smaller lakes and ponds are patrolled less frequently. Dunleavy explained coverage of smaller water bodies is accomplished by officers towing a small patrol craft on a trailer to three to 10 lakes and ponds in a given day, where they then launch the boat and patrol one to two hours at each one. Cuts in Marine Patrol’s budget are what have necessitated the cutback in personnel, Dunleavy said. He said the ultimate extent of the funding cuts is still hard to determine because Marine Patrol draws funding from the Navigation and Safety Fund which depends in part on money collected from boat registrations, which varies from year to year. In past years money remaining in the fund after Marine Patrol paid its operating expenses, could be used, with legislative approval, for large undertakings by the agency such as building work, purchase of new patrol craft, new communications equipment or major replacement of aids to navigation. But the as the result of legislative action any balance in that fund will now instead be funneled into the general fund, Dunleavy explained. While some have calculated that that figure could potentially amount to $1.2-million, he said it was too soon to know for sure. The use of funds that in the past have been more or less dedicated to the boating safety services, for other state purposes has marine dealers worried.
Saturday May 12, 2012 Autograph Session: 5:30pm–7pm Bell Time: 7:15pm
Bruce Wright, vice president and general manager for Irwin Marine, said that it is critical that Marine Patrol provide a certain level of service in order to ensure a safe boating environment. “We need to be sure we don’t undermine that (important economic) resource,’ he said. Budget cuts have also resulted in dissolving the state Department of Safety Services which was made up of Marine Patrol and the Bureau of Tramways and Amusement Safety. Oversight of Marine Patrol was transferred to State Police and the Tramways and Amusement inspection agency was placed under the Fire Marshal’s Office, explained Jim Van Dongen, spokesman for the Department of Safety. Early statistics suggest that this boating season could be much busier than last year’s. Van Dongen said that the number of boating registrations for the first four months of this year is 40,056 — 7-percent higher than for the same period last year. But both Dunleavy and Wright suspect that that increase is due largely to the unusually warm weather in March and the record early Ice Out on Winnipesaukee. “I’m expecting that what appears to be an increase will level out by the Fourth of July,” Dunleavy said. He said it will probably not be until sometime in June — after children are out of school — before Marine Patrol will be able to gauge just how busy the boating season will be. Wright said that the 35-percent increase in boat registrations processed by Irwin Marine so far this year was largely weather driven. Though he said he is optimistic for a good boating season, he said it would take until the end of this month before a clear picture emerges.

LACONIA — “Apps” might mean Angry Birds or Instagram to some, but for Rob Clifford the word conjures the sight, flavor and aroma of spinach-artichoke dip, ravioli Florentine in a sun-dried tomato and pesto cream sauce, and Caprese salad, with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and Kalamata olives. As head chef and kitchen manager for Fratello’s Italian Grille, those are the three most popular appetizers on his menu. They’re also the dishes that he’s preparing to bring to the Altursa Club’s 22nd Annual Taste of the Lakes Region, to be held Sunday at the Conference Center at the Lake Opechee Inn and Spa. Clifford, a native to the area, is quite familiar with the annual event. He’s only missed one Taste of the Lakes Region.

Bidding started at $40 million with seven buyers jumping into the competition early. The battle eventually boiled down to two phone bidders as the historic hammer price was finally achieved after more than 12 minutes. The record price includes the buyer’s premium, an additional amount the buyer pays the auction house. Sotheby’s said the pastel-on-board version of “The Scream” is the most colorful and vibrant of the four and the only version whose frame was handpainted by the artist to include his poem, detailing the work’s inspiration. In the poem, Munch described himself “shivering with anxiety” and said he felt “the great scream in nature.”
Norwegian businessman Petter Olsen, whose father was a friend and patron of the artist, said he sold the piece through Sotheby’s because he felt “the moment has come to offer the rest of the world the chance to own and appreciate this remarkable work.” “I have lived with this work all my life, and its power and energy have only increased with time,” Olsen said. Proceeds from the sale will go toward the establishment of a new museum, art center and hotel in Hvitsten, Norway, where Olsen’s father and Munch were neighbors. The director of the National Museum in Oslo, Audun Eckhoff, says Norwegian authorities approved the Munch sale since the other versions of the composition are in Norwegian museums.

The juvenile driver of this Chevrolet pick-up truck sustained minor head injuries after attempting to turn left onto Corliss Road in Meredith and was struck by another pick-up traveling in the other direction. Both vehicles spun 180 degrees, with the Chevrolet coming to rest against the side of a school bus that was stopped at the intersection. (Laconia Daily Sun photo/Adam Drapcho)
Truck slides up against empty school bus after wreck MEREDITH — A crash on Route 104 on Tuesday afternoon saw one man transported to Lakes Region General Hospital for treatment of minor injuries. According to a statement issued by the police department, a juvenile driving a 2003 Chevrolet S-10 pick-up was traveling west on Route 104 at about 2:40 on Tuesday and turned left onto Corliss Hill Road, crossing the path of 27 year-old Justin Sargent of New Hampton, who was driving a 1992 Ford pick-up. Sargent struck the Chevrolet on the passenger door area, sending both vehicles spinning 180 degrees. The juvenile’s Chevrolet came to a rest with the driver’s side of the vehicle pressed against the side
of a school bus which was stopped at the end of Corliss Hill Road. There were no students on the bus at the time and damage to the bus was minor. The driver, 63 year-old Kenneth Folkes of Meredith, was not injured. Sargent was also uninjured. Because the Chevrolet’s passenger side door was damaged, and because the driver’s side was pressed against the bus, the juvenile driver had to be extracted from the vehicle by Meredith Fire Department personnel. He was then transported to the hospital for treatment of minor head injuries, including cuts. — Adam Drapcho
CHINA from page 2 U.S. officials verified that account. But they adamantly denied his contention that one American diplomat had warned him of a threat from the Chinese that his wife would be beaten to death if he did not get out of the embassy. “I think we’d like to rest in a place outside of China,” Chen told the AP, appealing again for help from Washington. “Help my family and me leave safely.”
Only hours earlier, U.S. officials said they had extracted from the Chinese government a promise that Chen would join his family and be allowed to start a new life in a university town in China, safe from the rural authorities who had abusively held him in prison and house arrest for nearly seven years. Clinton spoke to Chen on the phone when he left the embassy and, in a statement, welcomed the resettlement agreement as one that “reflected his see next page

Red Sox bats quiet again in 4-2 loss to A’s BOSTON (AP) — Brandon McCarthy beat an AL East opponent once again, holding Boston to one run over 6 2-/3 innings as the Oakland Athletics defeated the Red Sox 4-2 Wednesday night. Seth Smith drove in a pair of runs for Oakland. The A’s, who started the day with the majors’ worst batting average and fewest runs in the AL, took two of three games from the Red Sox. Boston has lost seven of its last eight in Fenway Park. McCarthy (2-3) allowed five hits, walked three and fanned four. He improved to 8-0 with a 3.34 ERA since 2009 against AL East clubs. Brian Fuentes gave up Dustin Pedroia’s RBI double in the ninth, but got his first save. Daniel Bard (2-3) took the loss, allowing four runs on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings. Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks, recalled earlier in the day when Kevin Youkilis was placed on the 15-day DL with a strained lower back, went 2 for 3 with a double and a stolen base in his first major league game. David Ortiz went 2 for 4 and is hitting .488 in Fenway. Bard breezed through the first three innings,
allowing only Cliff Pennington’s first-inning single and a walk in each of the next two before the A’s grabbed a 1-0 lead on Smith’s RBI single in the fourth. They took advantage of left fielder Cody Ross misplaying Smith’s RBI double in the sixth, scored three runs and chased Bard to open a 4-0 edge. Smith lofted a fly near the corner that Ross overran, and the ball bounced on the track behind him. Kila Ka’aihue followed with a double into the rightfield corner and, after Bard hit Kurt Suzuki on the left hand, Brandon Inge had an RBI double. Matt Albers got the next two batters, stranding runners on second and third. Boston had the first two runners on in the fifth, but Marlon Byrd failed on two sacrifice attempts before popping out. McCarthy then easily retired the next two hitters — Mike Aviles and Ryan Sweeney. Byrd’s sacrifice fly made it 4-1 in the seventh. Boston’s Adrian Gonzalez struck out with the bases loaded to end the seventh and bounced out to end the game. He went 0 for 4 and is hitless for his last 15 at-bats.
from preceding page choices and our values.” But the murky circumstances of Chen’s departure from the embassy, and his sudden appeal to leave China after declaring he wanted to stay, again threatened to overshadow talks that were to focus on the global economic crisis and hotspots such as North Korea, Iran, Syria and Sudan. The Chinese Foreign Ministry signaled its unhappiness with the entire affair, demanding that the U.S. apologize for giving Chen sanctuary at the embassy. “What the U.S. side should do now is neither to continue misleading the public and making every excuse to shift responsibility and conceal its wrongdoing, nor to interfere in the domestic affairs of China,” said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin said late Wednesday in a statement that was a response to comments from Clinton praising the deal on Chen. Chen, 40, became an international human rights figure and inspiration to many ordinary Chinese after running afoul of local government officials for exposing forced abortions carried out as part of China’s one-child policy. He served four years in prison on what supporters said were fabricated charges,
then was kept under house arrest with his wife, daughter and mother, with the adults often being roughed up by officials and his daughter searched and harassed. Blinded by childhood fever but intimately familiar with the terrain of his village, Chen slipped from his guarded farmhouse in eastern China’s Shandong province at night on April 22. He made his way through fields and forest, along roads and across a narrow river to meet the first of several supporters who helped bring him to Beijing and the embassy. It took three days for his guards to realize he was gone. In Washington, State Department spokesman Mark Toner disputed Chen’s claim that he was left alone by the Americans at the hospital. “There were U.S. officials in the building,” the spokesman told reporters. “I believe some of his medical team was in fact with him at the hospital.” He said U.S. officials would continue visiting Chen while he was there. Chen’s supporters in the U.S. called on Clinton to meet him directly, and one of them, Republican Rep. Christopher Smith of New Jersey, said it appeared the resettlement agreement “seems to have been done under significant duress.”

Former AMC head speaking at PSU commencement PLYMOUTH — The 141st Plymouth State University commencement ceremony will make history Saturday, May 19 as the institution holds its first unified graduation in decades by joining its undergraduate and graduate ceremonies. Former Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) President Andrew Falender will be the commencement speaker. During his 23-year tenure, AMC tripled its membership, increased its endowment ten times over, modernized and built dozens of AMC facilities and substantially increased volunteer programs and activities, providing many more people the opportunity to enjoy the out-of-doors and enhance their understanding of nature. Falender said he is humbled to provide the commencement speech at PSU. “Recent graduates should never underestimate the good they can do for this world,” Falender said. “I’ve seen examples where recent college graduates have saved lives while working in one of AMC’s huts, have inspired students to dedicate their lives to protecting the environment while working in one of AMC’s education programs, and in thousands if not hundreds of thousands of cases have opened the eyes of young and
old alike to the wonders of nature.” He added that his AMC experience was always centered on education. “We needed to bring education to everything we dealt with; we needed to be regional conservation leaders in those areas where we were most qualified; and, we needed to be seen as well managed and fiscally astute,” Falender said. “We always were trying to make the most of huge opportunities, to make a real impact.” PSU President Sara Jayne Steen says, “Andy Falender is a wonderful leader, a man who has dedicated himself to making a difference, with extraordinary results. We are honored to have him join us.” The 2012 Commencement also is the first graduation for PSU’s Doctor of Education program. The commencement ceremony starts at 10 a.m. at Currier Memorial Field off Route 175-A in Holderness, adjacent to the Foley Gymnasium. In the event of rain, the main ceremony will be held in the Foley Gymnasium and be broadcast via closed circuit TV alternative ceremonies at the PSU Ice Arena and the Court Room in the Hartman Union Building.

one of its biggest energy loads: hot water. Perhaps the most important aspect of this ongoing sustainability effort is that much of the work is done by students. It’s a true “boots on the roof” experience, because it is run as an”Energy Raiser” (much like a ‘barn raising’) by Plymouth Area Renewable Energy Initiative (PAREI). The relationship between New Hampton School and PAREI began on Earth Day 2010, when science faculty Rebekka Joslin’s Projects in Sustainability class worked with to install a 60-tube Apricus system on half of Veazey dorm. In 2011, the School put a 30-tube system on Smith House, which includes the Headmaster’s house and the Alumni Hall reception area. This year, the School and PAREI will team up to put another system on the other half of Veazey dorm see next page

LACONIA – Hundreds of residents from Laconia and Northern New Hampshire are coming together May 12, for Walk MS, presented by Biogen Idec & Élan. The five-mile route starts and finishes at Opechee Park. Check-in opens at 9 a.m. and the official start is 10 a.m. Organized by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, fundraising by Walk MS participants helps individuals and families address the challenges of living with multiple sclerosis. There are more than 2,500 people in New Hampshire known to have MS, which can dramatically impact the lives of as many as seven family members for each person diagnosed. People affected by MS count on the National MS Society to provide MS education, support, advocacy, and services, and to fund cutting-edge research and treatment to stop disease progression, restore lost function, and end MS for future generations. Each walker, 12-years-old and above, is required to raise at least $25. T shirts are awarded for at least $100 in fundraising, but historically walkers easily average above $200. And, there are prizes for higher levels of fundraising. Family members and coworkers have fun forming teams, who walk and fundraise together. Teams and individual walkers can register online, www.walkMSgne.org, to take advantage of e fundraising tools. Registrations are also accepted by phone, 1 800 344 4867 opt. 2, and in-person on Walk day. Volunteers are also needed to make the walk run smoothly. Send questions about walking, fundraising, or volunteering to walkMSgne@nmss.org. Of the many sponsors that make Walk MS possible each year, our most loyal and generous are Biogen Idec & Élan, EMD Serono & Pfizer, Bernie & Phyl’s Furniture, Data Associates, Patients Like Me, WMUR TV9, Honest Tea, Laconia Savings Bank, and Pure Protein. Multiple sclerosis interrupts the flow of information between brain and body and can stop people from moving forward in their lives. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS. MS is typically diagnosed between ages 20 and 50, but teenagers and even young children can have the disease. MS affects women nearly three times more often than men. There are more than 19,000 people with MS in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont; 400,000 cases in the U.S., and 2.1 million worldwide.

by Darby Conley
By Holiday Mathis to let go. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your drive pushes you; your goals pull you; and your life distracts you. There’s probably a good reason. These distractions are telling you something about what you need and what you really think is important. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). How will your life look after you’ve achieved your aims? Envision it as much as you can today while your imagination and creativity are exceptionally strong. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have this habit of creating the magic and then giving other people the credit for what you did. Stop deflecting the glory. Soak it in, and let it fuel your next endeavor. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The bottom line is your vitality will improve when you get more sleep. Revisit your nighttime routine. Does it support relaxation as much as it could? A few key adjustments will make a big difference. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll be making an agreement with life. If you give it your very best and expect to get something back for your effort, it will go all wrong. Giving and expecting nothing -- that’s when the magic happens. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 3). You have a way of building excitement around yourself, and you’ll love the feeling of being in the spotlight. Others will seek your nurturing and guidance in June. Your internal compass will point the way. You’ll take on a new project in July, and things happen quickly for you -- a sign that you’re on the right path. Scorpio and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 19, 24, 30 and 14.
by Chad Carpenter
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your idols may fall. That’s what human idols do, after all. The good news is that no one can take away what you’ve learned or the qualities you admired in the first place. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Does that special person in your life make you want to be a better partner? If not, you’ll be turning the question around in your mind. How can you make your loved ones want to rise to the occasion of you? GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The plan changes and you’ll go with the flow. Your flexibility will be appreciated, although maybe you shouldn’t make a habit of this. People need to know that you’ll hold them accountable for their actions. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Honesty is not as hard to come by as people think. The key to getting truthful answers from people is to make it OK for them to tell the truth. If others think the truth will anger or disappoint you, they won’t mention it. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). People owe you, and it’s time to cash in your chips. You can do so with your head held high. Everyone knows the score, and it would be wrong for you not to take your turn. Also, others will love to know they helped you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your nurturing qualities will be amplified. You’ll continue to look for ways to build other people up, especially if you believe they have less than you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You don’t want to waste what you’re given, and yet not all of it is going to work for your situation. Holding on just because you’re afraid to lose is not a good enough reason. In that case, it’s better

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Thursday, May 3, the 124th day of 2012. There are 242 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 3, 1937, Margaret Mitchell won the Pulitzer Prize for her novel, “Gone With the Wind.” On this date: In 1791, Poland adopted a national constitution. In 1802, Washington, D.C., was incorporated as a city. In 1911, Wisconsin Gov. Francis E. McGovern signed the first U.S. workers’ compensation law to withstand constitutional review. In 1916, Irish nationalist Padraic Pearse and two others were executed by the British for their roles in the Easter Rising. In 1933, Nellie T. Ross became the first female director of the U.S. Mint. In 1948, the Supreme Court ruled that covenants prohibiting the sale of real estate to blacks or members of other racial groups were legally unenforceable. In 1952, the Kentucky Derby was televised nationally for the first time on CBS; the winner was Hill Gail. In 1960, the Harvey Schmidt-Tom Jones musical “The Fantasticks” began a nearly 42-year run at New York’s Sullivan Street Playhouse. In 1971, the National Public Radio program “All Things Considered” made its debut. In 1979, Conservative Party leader Margaret Thatcher was chosen to become Britain’s first female prime minister as the Tories ousted the incumbent Labor government in parliamentary elections. In 1986, in NASA’s first post-Challenger launch, an unmanned Delta rocket lost power in its main engine shortly after liftoff, forcing safety officers to destroy it by remote control. In 1987, The Miami Herald said its reporters had observed a young woman spending “Friday night and most of Saturday” at a Washington townhouse belonging to Democratic presidential candidate Gary Hart. (The woman was later identified as Donna Rice; the scandal torpedoed Hart’s presidential bid.) One year ago: The White House said that Osama bin Laden was unarmed when Navy SEALs burst into his room at his Pakistan compound and shot him to death, a change in the official account that raised questions about whether the U.S. ever planned to capture the terrorist leader alive. Chicago’s Derrick Rose became at age 22 the NBA’s youngest MVP. Francisco Liriano pitched the major leagues’ first no-hitter of the season, throwing his first career complete game in Minnesota’s 1-0 victory over Chicago. Actor-director Jackie Cooper died in Santa Monica, Calif., at age 88. Today’s Birthdays: Folk singer Pete Seeger is 93. Actress Ann B. Davis is 86. Actor Alex Cord is 79. Singer Frankie Valli is 78. Sports announcer Greg Gumbel is 66. Pop singer Mary Hopkin is 62. Singer Christopher Cross is 61. Country musician Cactus Moser is 55. Rock musician David Ball is 53. Country singer Shane Minor is 44. Actor Bobby Cannavale is 42. Country musician John Hopkins is 41. Country-rock musician John Neff is 41. Country singer Brad Martin is 39. Actor Dule Hill is 37. Country singer Eric Church is 35. Dancer Cheryl Burke is 28.

Marc A. Landry, 61 MEREDITH — Marc Amedee Landry, 61, passed away gently at home on April 29, 2012 after a long battle with many illnesses. He was preceded in death by his beloved parents, Lucille E. Landry and Amedee S. Landry. Marc is survived by his only, and adored daughter, Kristalee Landry of Tilton, NH, and her daughter Alyssa Fay. Marc is also survived by his elder brother Dennis Landry of Manchester, MD, and wife Susan; and sister Pamela Landry McKenzie of Los Lunas, NM, and husband Burton. Born, October 1, 1950, Marc’s first adventure in life was traveling to Lima, Peru aboard the Santa Cecila, a Grace Line ship, at the tender age of six weeks. He grew up in Lima, Peru and La Paz, Bolivia, and lastly in Dover, NH, as his father pursued his State Department career. Marc was bilingual, learning Spanish and English together at an early age; this language fluency served him well throughout his life.
Marc’s life was filled with many adventures and challenges; he faced all of them with spirit and clarity of purpose. He was a strong advocate for the services he needed, and always found a way to get his needs met. He likewise advocated for others whose voices could not be heard so clearly. One of Marc’s undying loves was his Doberman Pinscher “Macho’. This dog filled a place in his heart that held no other; they will be together for eternity in a beautiful place both loved for many years. Marc’s passing leaves his family bereft. He is shorn of his physical suffering, and for that we are grateful. His last adventure is exploring what lies beyond these earthly tethers. We pray that he is reunited with his loving parents and enjoys the peace and rest he so deserves. As per Marc’s request, there will be no ceremonies to mark his passing. Flowers and cards may be sent to his daughter Kristalee Landry @ 1 Frasiers Lane, Apt E, Tilton, NH 03276.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, May 3, 2012— Page 25
Dear Annie: Last year, our youngest brother, “Don,” was diagnosed with throat cancer. Within three months, it had spread over his entire body. Don is only 58, married with two children. When he was initially diagnosed and having a terrible time, his wife told people he was acting like a big baby. He drove himself to treatments or had a neighbor or brother-in-law take him. When the treatments didn’t help, he had to give up his job. His wife told the rest of us that her husband didn’t want to see us, although her family was allowed to stop by. She and her son (by a previous marriage) told Don that they were taking him for a drive, and she dumped him at the hospice about 40 miles away from home, even though there is a perfectly good one much closer. Four days later, she called my sister and said they had to do this because Don’s condition was so bad. The next day, my sister went to visit. She said Don was alert, but very depressed. His wife had had the phone removed from his room. Don had no idea that his family and co-workers had been trying to reach him. The co-workers had even taken up donations to help. He thought no one cared. Now his wife has told the staff that he cannot have any guests unless she brings them. The workers at hospice are only following the wife’s wishes and have threatened to call security on family members who try to visit. What can be done about a person so evil that she would allow him to die alone like this? -- Indianapolis Dear Indianapolis: This sounds like a nightmare. Hospice follows the instructions of the person with power of attorney. Try contacting the social worker at hospice and ask whether someone will check on Don to see whether he can receive phone calls. If your brother is of sound mind, he can ask for the phone to be put back in his room. And if you can tem-
porarily set aside your differences with Don’s wife, call her and ask whether there is anything you can do to help, and whether you can accompany her to see Don. We hope the entire family will support one another through this. Dear Annie: My husband is extremely overweight. He has back problems, and his knees ache. I have discussed the dangers of heart problems, the increased chance of diabetes, etc., but he really doesn’t care. Unfortunately, it has affected the way I look at him. Seeing his belly folding over his belt is NOT a turn-on. It is disturbing to see the one you love neither care what he looks like nor see what he is doing to our marriage. How can I get him to realize the severity of this? -- Concerned Dear Concerned: Your husband knows he is overweight, but the idea of diet and exercise is probably more effort than he is currently willing to put forth. Your criticisms are not going to create an incentive, so please find another tack. He should see his doctor about his weight and perhaps get a referral to a nutritionist. If you are in charge of the meals at home, make sure they are healthful. Invite him to join you for a walk after dinner or any other activity that is pleasurable. Above all, he needs to know you love him regardless, and that your concern is because you want him around longer, not because you want him to be more attractive in bed. We know that is not a trifling matter, but please start from a less pressured place. Dear Annie: “Michigan” said the boss took a portion of the tips from the waitstaff. I have been a server for 25 years. The hourly rate is often less than $4. I have been required to share my tips with the busboy, the bartender and even other servers. Never have I known of a business owner taking a portion. This is highly unethical. -- Hard Worked and Broke
