Democrats show off lineup of state & local candidates

LACONIA — With the filing period just a week away, the Belknap County Democratic Committee paraded candidates for governor, Congress and the state Legislature before a standing room crowd near 60 gathered for a pot luck supper at the Unitarian Universalist Society last evening. “Thank you all for coming,” began Matt Huot, acting chairman of the county committee, who added pointsee DEMS page 11

S’men worry fire truck vote may not be legal after all Decision on what to put before voters — & whether or not to approach judge — put off until Monday BY GAIL OBER


GILFORD — The effort to, as soon as possible, put a new fire truck in service took another strange and sudden twist last night when the selectmen voted to delay approving the final wording of a warrant article for fear the course set for voting on it may be in violation of state law. They voted to table whether or not to recommend an amended version of the article before the

voters on July 31 until Monday at 6 p.m. The amendment includes a clause that stipulates the town would have to vote each of 10 years to approve funding for a lease/purchase payment — or, a so-called non-appropriation clause. Earleir language committed future town meetings to approving the expenditure, with the first payment due in 2013. Town Administrator Scott Dunn told selectmen last night the warrant article, as written,

doesn’t get the town around the “no-means-no” clause in state law that says a town can’t go back to the voters in the same budget year for an appropriation request unless a majority of registered voters turns out to vote or a superior court judge certifies there is a legitimate emergency that can’t wait until the following March. The total votes cast in a town vote typically falls far short of the 50-percent mark. “Scott, do we have to go to a judge?” asked see GILFORD page 10

LMS to be honored Friday for commitment to student health & fitness BY ADAM DRAPCHO THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — When Kate Hohenberger was hired as a physical education teacher at the Middle School four years ago, she recalled that principal Jim McCollum challenged her to expand the program to engage more of the student body. A year later, Kyle Thornton was brought on as the second phys ed teacher, and

the two worked together to meet the challenge. On June 1, Thornton and Hohenberger have learned, the school will be honored with an “Outstanding Achievement Award,” given to one New Hampshire school per year. The award is given by the Governor’s Council on Physical Activity and Health. Representatives from Laconia Middle School will travel to

Obama calls Romney to congratulate him for gaining GOP nomination WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama on Wednesday congratulated Mitt Romney on securing the Republican presidential nomination, a gesture coupled with a new line of attack on the GOP challenger that portrays his economic record while governor of Massachusetts as a failure. The president called Romney and told him “he looked forward to an important and healthy debate about America’s future,” Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt said. Romney’s campaign said the call was “brief and cordial.” Both men wished each other’s families well during the upcoming race. Romney’s primary win in Texas on Tuesday pushed him past the 1,144-delegate threshold he needed to claim the nomination. Obama took the formal step of congratulating

Blackberry sinking fast but patents & network have value WATERLOO, Ontario (AP) — Research In Motion Ltd., the maker of the BlackBerry, is in steep decline. The company, once the crown jewel of the Canadian technology industry, is now worth 1 percent of Apple’s market capitalization. One way for RIM to stop the downward tailspin: It could sell itself to a competitor or financial firm. But who would step up to buy RIM —and why? Late Tuesday, the company said it expects to post an operating loss for the current quarter, a sign that BlackBerry sales are falling even faster than analysts expected. On Wednesday, the company’s stock hit its lowest level since 2003, the year RIM went from making two-way e-mail pagers to smartphones. The stock has fallen 93 percent since their peak in 2008. Since then, the BlackBerry’s dominance as the smartphone for on-the-go business people has been eviscerated by Apple Inc.’s iPhone, and more recently, by phones running Google Inc.’s Android software. Research firm IDC says BlackBerrys now account for 6.4 percent of the global smartphone market, a third of what they had two years ago. In that time, the company’s financial performance has suffered. RIM reported a 25 percent revenue decline in the latest fiscal quarter, to $4.2 billion from $5.6 billion. For the full fiscal year that ended on March 3, it earned $1.2 billion, or $2.22 per share, on revenue of $18.4 billion. That’s down from net income of $3.4 billion, or $6.34 a share, on revenue of $19.9 billion in fiscal 2011.

his opponent even as his team looked to shift to the Massachusetts story under Romney. In a five-page memorandum from senior Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod, the Obama camp cast Romney as poor steward of the Massachusetts economy during his 2003-2007 tenure as governor. “When it comes to Mitt Romney and his economic philosophy the facts are clear — it didn’t work then, and it won’t work now,” Axelrod wrote. Romney’s campaign, meanwhile, was bringing attention to failed stimulus projects under Obama and federal money given to green energy companies like Solyndra, a solar firm that received hundreds of millions of dollars from the government only to go bankrupt. The competing attack-lines came as Romney pivoted from a long primary slog to the Republican

nomination and a new summertime window to sway voters who have not yet fully tuned into the presidential campaign. Romney hopes to present himself as a worthy replacement for Obama who can help revitalize a slow-moving economy, the most important issue for voters. The country is “just beginning a general election, we’ve gone through a primary ... not a lot of people focus time on the characteristics of a new candidate like myself, and people will get to know me better. My guess is they’re going to get to know more about me than they’d like to by the time we’re finished,” Romney said in an interview on Fox News that aired Wednesday but was taped over the weekend. For months, Obama and his allies have signaled see PHONE CALL page 5

ATLANTA (AP) — Those cute mail-order chicks that wind up in children’s Easter baskets and backyard farms have been linked to more than 300 cases of salmonella in the U.S. — mostly in youngsters — since 2004. An estimated 50 million live poultry are sold through the mail each year in the United States in a business that has been booming because of the growing popularity of backyard chicken farming as a hobby among people who like the idea of raising their own food. But health officials are warning of a bacterial threat on the birds’ feet, feathers, beaks and eggs. “Most people can tell you that chicken meat may have salmonella on it,” said Casey Barton Behravesh of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “But surprisingly, we found many people are not

aware that live chicks and chickens can spread salmonella to people.” Since 2004, at least 316 people in 43 states got sick in an outbreak tied primarily to one mail-order hatchery. Health officials believe thousands more illnesses connected to the business were probably never reported. No one died, but three dozen people were hospitalized with bloody diarrhea or other symptoms. The illnesses were detailed Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine. Salmonella can cause diarrhea, fever and stomach pain but is rarely fatal. It is most dangerous to very young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems. The infection is usually contracted from food, but live animals can transmit it, see SALMONELLA page 10

BEIRUT (AP) — Thirteen bound corpses, many apparently shot execution-style, have been discovered in eastern Syria, U.N. observers said Wednesday, days after the massacre of more than 100 people provoked international outrage and the coordinated expulsion of Syrian diplomats from world capitals. The latest killings happened in Deir el-Zour province, where the bodies were found late Tuesday blindfolded with their hands tied behind their backs. A statement by the U.N. mission said some appeared

to have been shot in the head at close range. A video posted online by activists showed the men lying face down, pools of dried blood under their heads. The head of the U.N. observer team, Maj. Gen. Robert Mood, said he was “deeply disturbed by this appalling and inexcusable act.” The fresh killings underline violence that seems to be spiraling out of control as the uprising against see SYRIA page 12

Bettencourt apologizes for ‘inexcusable lapse in judgement’ in resignation letter CONCORD (AP) — Former Republican Majority Leader D.J. Bettencourt has apologized in his resignation letter for what he calls the “inexcusable lapse in judgment and integrity” that forced him to step down earlier this week. Bettencourt resigned Sunday after admitting he misrepresented the amount of work he performed for another lawmaker during a law school internship, but only after the lawmaker, Rep. Brandon Giuda, went public with the allegations. Two days earlier, Bettencourt issued a statement saying he would resign at the end of the legislative session, June 6, in part because he was about to get married and start a new job. At the start of Wednesday’s House session, the clerk read Bettencourt’s resignation letter, which included apologies to his peers, constituents and family. Bettencourt wasn’t present. “It is among my many regrets that through my own fault, I cannot express my thanks and say farewell to you all in person,” Bettencourt wrote. “I want the House to know that I am sorry for inexcusable lapse in judgment and integrity. We are citizen legislators. Our obligations as legislators never relieve us

of our obligations as citizens. I have breached those citizen obligations and I stand ready for the consequences.” Bettencourt, 28, also apologized to the law school, saying it had offered him the opportunity to learn and be part of an honorable profession. “But that profession comes with high expectations that my actions demonstrate I am not yet ready to meet. I can only hope that one day I will be worthy of it,” he said. According to Giuda, Bettencourt submitted records to the University of New Hampshire School of Law indicating he had completed a semester-long legal internship at Giuda’s office, despite working there for only one hour. Giuda complained to House Speaker William O’Brien, who met with both Bettencourt and Giuda on Friday and agreed that Bettencourt would resign at the end of the ses-

sion, citing “personal problems.” When Bettencourt made no mention of personal problems in his initial announcement, Giuda threatened to make the law school records public unless Bettencourt resigned immediately. O’Brien said Tuesday that Bettencourt’s actions were unacceptable, though he stopped short of saying he would have blown the whistle had Giuda not come forward. House Democrats on Wednesday wrote to O’Brien demanding that he explain why he didn’t request Bettencourt’s resignation immediately and why he supported allowing Bettencourt to resign without admitting wrongdoing. “The people of New Hampshire deserve answers to legitimate questions — questions asked not only by the minority in this body, but by the media, by members of the Republican caucus, and members of the public,” they wrote.

SUGAR HILL, N.H. (AP) — A rural post office in northern New Hampshire is now open just a halfhour a day for customers to buy stamps. No other services are available at the Sugar Hill post office across from Town Hall. A rural carrier from Lisbon is running it from 10:15 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. Customers found out Friday when they saw a notice posted on the door. Lisbon Postmaster Ron Spaulding tells the Caledonian Record ( the decision comes out of the Northern New England District office of the United States Postal Service. Messages left with the operations manager were not returned. The town offices and local businesses use the post office regularly. The Sugar Hill office survived an effort to close it in 1991.

from preceding page income of $3.4 billion, or $6.34 a share, on revenue of $19.9 billion in fiscal 2011. RIM issued the dire warning about its business Tuesday, adding that it will lay off a “significant” number of employees. Still, the company is defiant. Chief executive, Thorsten Heins, says he can turn things around with the help of fresh smartphone software. Heins joined RIM four years ago and was most recently its chief operating officer. He replaced co-CEOs Balsillie and Mike Lazaridis in January after the company lost tens of billions in market value. “My charter from the board of directors is very clear: long-term value creation with RIM,” Heins told The Associated Press in an interview at the company’s headquarters in Waterloo, Ontario, earlier this month. Analysts give RIM only a slight chance of coming out of the crisis. To hedge its bets, the company has hired bankers to look at its options. It’s not actively looking to sell itself, Heins said, but it wants to be prepared. “We are prudent because we know the situation is somewhat challenging,” Heins said. “So we are just looking at everything that could be an option. That doesn’t mean we are pulling on those options. But we need to understand ... what is our field of action that we could take in case we need to?” As RIM’s prospects worsened, last year marked a turning point in the way analysts assess RIMs value. Instead of treating it like a company with a future, they started looking at it as a collection of parts that could be split up and sold separately to the highest bidder.

Non-profit Laconia Ice Arena sets out to raise $267K to replace aging refrigeration system BY ROGER AMSDEN FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — The Winnipesaukee Skating Club has launched a $267,000 capital campaign — ‘’Think Rink for Kids’’ — which has the goal of replacement of the Laconia Ice Arena’s refrigeration system. ‘’We want to raise $50,000 before July 1 of this year and additional $217,000 within the next 24 months,’’ says Chuck Yaeger, president of the board of directors. He said that the capital campaign was prompted by a pledge by Merrill Fay of Fay’s Boatyard to provide a dollar for dollar match for funds raised in the first six months of the campaign. ‘’This is a major undertaking for the skating club and is a real financial challenge as the facility enters its second generation,’’ said Yaeger. Will Fay, arena manager and leader of the capital campaign, said that the current refrigeration system, which has been in place since the arena opened in 1994, has a life expectancy of 15 to 20

years and that the club needs to make repairs and improvements in order to allow the arena to continue serving the public. He said that the arena is home to the Lakes Region Youth Hockey Association, three high school hockey teams, the Laconia Leafs Junior Hockey team as well as groups like the Lakes Region Legends Men’s Hockey Club, a women’s group and a figure skating club and offers daily public skating. ‘’During the winter there are about 1,000 kids using the rink. We need to keep it going for their sake,’’ said Fay, who said that it took a real community effort to build the arena and that he is confident that the same kind of support will be forthcoming. Jay Meegan of the WSC said that the first $50,000 will be used to get the refrigeration system through the next season and that the second phase of the campaign will fund its replacement.

PHONE CALL from page 2 plans to target Romney’s Massachusetts record, with advisers noting that the state’s economy lagged in job creation and saw an increase in debt while he was governor. The critique builds upon a line of attack this month of Romney’s record at private equity firm Bain Capital, which Obama’s team contends led to job losses and bankrupt companies even while Bain profited. “Whether companies succeeded or failed, Romney Economics netted huge profits for him and his investors, but sometimes proved devastating for the middle-class workers whose jobs, benefits and pensions were put at risk,” Axelrod wrote in the memo released Wednesday. Axelrod sought to link Romney’s Bain record with his Massachusetts experience by noting that Romney ran for governor on the basis of his private-sector background. “Under Gov. Romney, the Massachusetts economy was not at the top or even in the middle, but close to the bottom of all the states,” he wrote. Republicans contend that Obama’s critique of the Bain record will backfire because it will give voters the impression that he is anti-business. The focus on Obama’s green energy record, including Energy Department funding for companies like Solyndra, gives Romney a chance to rebut Bain because Republicans say Obama essentially played the role of venture capitalist by investing government money in green energy companies. On Tuesday, Romney raised money in Las Vegas with Donald Trump, the real estate mogul who has stoked doubts about whether Obama was born in America. It was the start of a weeklong push to raise millions of dollars during a West Coast trip designed to help Romney bring in as much cash as possible ahead of a ramped-up campaign schedule later this summer. The former Massachusetts governor was looking to take advantage of his official claiming of the nomination, a triumph of endurance for a candidate who came up short four years ago and had to fight hard this year as voters flirted with a carousel of GOP rivals. According to the Associated Press count, Romney surpassed the 1,144 delegates needed to win the nomination by winning 105 delegates in the Texas primary, pushing his total to 1,191 delegates.

Who needs ‘em? JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America and the handful of other behemoths of Wall Street that dominate American banking — who needs them? After enduring years of insatiable greed by the slick-fingered hucksters who run these gambling houses; after watching in dismay as their ineptness and avarice drained more than $19-trillion from America’s household wealth since 2007 and plunged our real economy into the worst financial crisis since the 1930s Depression; after witnessing their shameful demands for trillions of dollars in taxpayer bailouts to save their banks and their jobs; and now after seeing them return immediately to business as usual, including paying multimillion-dollar bonuses to themselves — we have to ask: Huh!?! Oh, no-no, cry the banking titans, don’t even think of looking behind the curtain! Trust us, say these Wall Street alchemists, for we are essential to juicing the economy with our complex abracadabra investment schemes. In fact, however, those schemes just move money around, spiraling real investment capital from the grassroots up to superrich global profiteers who create nothing but more wealth for themselves. Shell games at carnival sideshows are more honest than big-bank trading houses, for the hustles of such hucksters as JPMorgan, Goldman, B of A, etc. are based on financial illusions, off-the-books accounting, illegally leveraged borrowing, ridiculous tax subsidies and hide-the-pea secrecy. The obvious truth is that these high-flying, high-tech, high-speed emporiums of high finance serve themselves, not us — so we have no obligation or need to keep serving them. Of course we need banks — to lend to us consumers and our productive businesses, to handle our commercial transactions, to manage our savings and provide financial advice, etc. But that’s not what the leviathans of Wall Street do. Rather than keep protecting them, let’s decentralize America’s capital, reinvesting our public trust in community banks and credit unions that actually deserve it and serve it. This month has brought us yet another screaming example of a bigshot Wall Street banker who got too big for his britches — a story revealing the inevitable excess that comes from banks that are simply too big. In April, Jamie Dimon — the swaggering chief of Wall Street’s largest financial conglomerate,

JPMorgan Chase — had scoffed at critics who warned that his banks high-flying investment division was dangerously overextended and risking collapse. “A complete tempest in a teapot,” scoffed Dimon. On May 10, however, Jamie’s teapot exploded, blowing a $3-billion hole in the nation’s largest bank ... and in Dimon’s reputation. Poor Jamie — why didn’t someone tell him? Some tried. As early as 2009, JPMorgan’s own internal risk managers raised concerns that this opaque division was pouring billions of dollars into speculative trades that were too large and too complex even to understand, much less manage. But their caution was dismissed, and Dimon himself pushed for more of these wondrous schemes, hailing them as perpetual profit-machines. OK, the bank’s execs were bedazzled by visions of sugary bonuses, but where were the federal regulators, who’re supposed to dog banker excess? Shoved aside by Dimon. While the Federal Reserve and Comptroller of Currency had more than 100 inspectors imbedded in JPMorgan, none were in the reckless investment division. The bank’s big-shot boss, who is politically wired to the top leaders of both the Republican and Democratic parties in Washington, had aggressively pushed against having regulators hovering around his hot investment profit center, assuring them that nothing was happening in there worth watching. Dimon had extra clout, for not only was he a Wall Street star sitting atop the biggest bank, but — get this — he also has a seat on the board of the New York branch of the Federal Reserve, which has regulatory authority over Wall Street and will now conduct the inquiry into JPMorgan’s disastrous risk-taking. Yes, Jamie the Fed official will investigate Jamie the banker. This is proof again that these banks are simply too big — too big for managers, regulators and the public interest. We don’t need yet another regulatory Band-Aid, we need Teddy Roosevelt to bust ‘em up. (Jim Hightower has been called American’s most popular populist.

LETTERS Romney = quick profits for investors at expense of the workers To the editor, Governor Romney has based his presidential campaign on the premise that he is best suited to improve our nation’ economy. As governor of Massachusetts his performance was disappointing. His record as governor was defined by broken promises and missed opportunities. He promised to cut spending and debt, but both increased while he was governor. State spending under Romney increased by 6.5-percent annually, and Romney increased Massachusetts’ long-term debt by 16.4-percent or $2.6-billion. He promised to “protect and create jobs”, but under Romney, Massachusetts was 47th out of 50th in the nation in job creation. It’s not surprising that Governor Romney failed to create jobs. His experience as a corporate buyout specialist wasn’t about strengthening companies and creating jobs for long-term economic growth. It was in reaping quick profits for himself and his investors at the expense

of workers and communities. Today, Romney promises more of the same policies that would run up deficits while creating an economy built on outsourcing, loopholes and risky financial deals. He has promised to reduce taxes on the wealthiest and saddle the burden of recovery on the rest of us. These are precisely the same policies that created the worst recession in 70 years and caused unimaginable damage to the American Middle Class. Governor Romney somehow expects different results from the same policies and he expects that the voters won’t remember what nearly drove our economy into a depression. Under President Obama, our economy is moving in the right direction again. We’ve added 4.25-million private sector jobs in the last 26 months, and manufacturing jobs are coming back to America. We can’t afford to return to the failed economic policies of the past. Duncan Porter-Zuckerman Center Sandwich

Please, Mr. President, hire some competent staff for a change To the editor, A note to President Obama: Please, please, please Mr.President stop embarrassing yourself and humiliating the whole country with yet again another blunder. Oh I know it was a mistake, unintentional but jeez this is just the latest in a long line of gaffs, screw-ups and mis-speaks. Calling a Nazi death camp “Polish” just because it was located on German occupied Polish ground doesn’t make it Polish. Good lord sir, don’t you have any speech writers that know better or do they just not care? I will credit your loyalty to staff but can you blame the Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk for being outraged and demanding an apology saying the remark smacked of “ignorance, lack of knowledge, bad inten-

tions” and amounted to “a distortion of history.” Polish Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski echoed their nations indignation calling it an “outrageous mistake, overshadowed by ignorance and incompetence.” I can’t see how anyone can argue with their assessment. People have been saying for a long while now that it’s amateur hour in Washington so this just adds fuel to the fire. Now I admit I am no fan of yours Mr. President, but even so I would still prefer that you would, even at this late date, hire competent staff so that it would not seem to the rest of the world that America is populated only by vast masses of babbling, unthinking boobs. Steve Earle Hill

Mitt: ‘Higher energy prices would encourage energy efficiency’ To the editor, In an online town hall-style meeting in late March, Mr. Romney blamed Mr. Obama for rising gasoline prices. Now that gas prices are falling, will Mr. Romney “blame” Mr. Obama for causing the prices to fall? In the same online town-hallstyle meeting, Mr. Romney mocked the president for saying that he

would like gasoline prices to “change (upward) gradually.” Will Mr. Romney have repudiated his own statements in his 2010 book, “No Apology?” There he wrote, “Higher energy prices would encourage energy efficiency across the full array of American businesses and citizens.” What’s a voter to believe?

LETTERS Demographics clearly show Social Security is now unsustainable

The truth is green is not only ready, it is already quite profitable

To the editor, I don’t know for sure if Bill Knightly is a modern-day liberal or not, as I am not a mind reader, though he obviously believes he possesses that cognitive super power. He somehow knows that Tony Boutin would vote to repeal Social Security today as evidenced by his reply letter to him recently. Perhaps that is how he knows that Tony would not last one round in a debate with him on this issue. Again, since I do not possess Bill’s super power, I’m not sure if it is because of his apparent delusional belief in said power or it is arrogant, liberal elitism that leads him to conclude he would get more response by debating with his kitchen chair. One can only imagine what magical powers Mr. Knightly’s inanimate piece of kitchen furniture must possess. Is Mr. Bill right about Social Security requiring higher taxes and professional leadership? Regardless, it will require a lot more than that. That is precisely because of it’s Ponzi-like aspects. As the decades have cascaded by, less people contribute compared to those taking from the system. Demographics clearly show that is now unsustainable. In 1950 there were 16.5 workers for every retiree. By 1965 that number had fallen to four per retiree and now it is 2.8 per retiree. By 2022 it will be 2.4 and by 2027, it will be 2.2 workers for every retiree. Baby boomers will be retiring at the rate of 10,000 per day for the next 19 years. Currently, 13-percent of the population is 65 and over. By 2030, that percentage will be 18-per cent. This according to the Pew Research Center. Social Security was originally sold as an insurance program where folks paid a premium. It was assumed that these funds went into a trust fund for people when they retired. Instead, that money has been spent as though it belonged to some general revenue, giant slush fund, to be managed at the whim of the government. So, over the decades, the money has been spent on everything from forest ranger uniforms to missile silos. We are therefore really talking about another form of income tax which means that in reality, there is no entitlement. Our government has been confiscating our money and doling it out as a form of welfare. Well, except there is no means testing for who gets this money. Hey, don’t scorch me for touching this third rail issue. This information was taken

To the editor, I thank Mr. Earl for being in agreement with me that the failure to adopt an effective national energy policy is indeed equally the fault of the “liberals” and the “conservatives”, “none of them have done a thing”. As for the North Dakota oil production which the Obama Administration has not acted for or against. “Some times nothin’ is a pretty Cool Hand”. As for space considerations, I would prefer that The Sun publish one letter that takes the effort to explore an issue in detail than publish dozens of shorter ideological “rants”. “Green this and Green that, none of which is ready”? The shareholders of Northland Power would probably disagree. Twenty-three percent of their current generating capacity comes from their wind farms. They currently have 17 projects under construction that are scheduled for completion in the next near 18 months. Not one of those projects is a “thermal” project.

from a discussion with Peter Schiff on the Jim Bohannon show. Imagine your financial advisor promising that if you give her $10,000 now at age 25, that same $10,000 will be waiting for you when you turn 67 or 70 or whatever the full retirement age will be at that time. What a deal! No interest was earned because of course it was never invested into an interest bearing account. If you are under 50 years of age, the above scenario will be overly optimistic. Simply because the current corrupt system is unsustainable and there will probably never be enough politicians willing to take on this issue beyond their bogus use of disingenuous, lofty, campaign rhetoric, they will continue to kick the can down the road until the road washes out. Didn’t Charles Ponzi and Bernard Madoff pay off investors with money from newer investors? Didn’t it work as long as the public was kept uninformed and there were sufficient new members to keep the money flowing? Didn’t they succeed through the deception of naive clientele while utilizing lofty rhetoric of promised riches? Our government has done the same thing for the past 67 years at the point of a gun, so to speak. Doesn’t Social Security need a total revamping rather than some honest tweaking? Shouldn’t politicians have to invest their money in the same enterprise they force us to join? Sorry Bill, but Tony offered the kind of bold solutions that will be needed to ensure our young people actually get to see any government and/or private money when they retire. You said that it would require a lock box which we can all agree on. It is a travesty that our congressmen and women spent the programs’ surplus revenue when it should have been saved and properly invested for the very problem we are now facing. A high crime of theft for which no one went to jail. The rest of your “positive” suggestions leave much to be desired: “ higher taxes, investments in education, building projects and other worthwhile endeavors”. I’m not sure how investments in education and building projects will “fix” social security, but then my IQ is probably not anywhere close to that of your Mensa kitchen chair. One can only imagine what you would choose to use social security revenues for in the pursuit of “worthwhile endeavsee next page

They are ALL either wind, solar or hydro projects. The stock is continuing to make new 52 week price highs in an over all stock market off by ~7-percent of it’s early April peak. The shareholders of Brookfield “RENEWABLE” Power have enjoyed a double in their investment in the last four years. Royal Dutch Shell has just announced a joint venture to build CNG & LNG fueling stations along the Trans-Canada Highway. Last time I checked our neighbors to the north have had the same Tory (“Republican”) administration in power for the last 10+ years. They some how find taxes to pay for most of their nation’s spending. Bi-lingual as a nation, one of their languages is referred to as a Romance language, derived from the Latin, as in ACTA NON VERBA.

Here are factors GOP’s redistricting committee didn’t consider To the editor, This letter is in response to Meredith Representative Colette Worsman’s letter in the May 22 issue of The Laconia Daily Sun regarding the redistricting lawsuit. It was because of her and Senator Forrester’s vote on HB-592 that has led Meredith to join in the lawsuit against the state. I take issue with a few things she stated: “The redistricting committee, appropriately set guidelines to ensure that the redistricting plan for New Hampshire House would be constitutional and not have excessive deviation.” What she did not say is that the House Special Committee on Redistricting did not consider the following legal factors, recognized by U.S. Supreme Court cases in their decision making: 1. That it is impossible to obtain perfect deviation using existing town boundaries; therefore, “reasonable” deviation is acceptable. Also, “substantial” and “substantially equal” are

acceptable standards as tests. 2. More deviation is permitted for state legislatures than for Congress. 3. The state Constitution is a factor to consider in determining reasonable deviation. N.H. Constitution, Section 2, Article 11, was amended by a super majority in 2006 to ensure that, to the extent possible, towns that had sufficient population for one or more reps get them. Secondly, she stated: “Instead of one or two representatives, Meredith will elect four, in tandem with Gilford. If Meredith has a concern, it will have four representatives accountable to its needs, not one or two.” Ironically, she talks about accountability. That is exactly what she did not do. She is accountable to us for her votes and in this case she failed to protect and preserve our right to our own dedicated representation. Paula Trombi Meredith

Isn’t there anything that can be done to preserve Red Hill Inn?

To the editor, I will say that probably many hundreds of thousands of people in the U.S. watched “Pretty Woman” starring Julia Roberts (Vivienne) and Richard Gere (Edward). It was a good romantic comedy filmed in 1990. The plot: Edward is a rich, ruthless businessman who specializes in taking over companies and then selling them off piece by piece. Vivienne is a prostitute who Edward hired for a week. His time with Vivienne has shown him another way of life — taking time off and enjoying life .Edward decides that he wants to create things rather than just making money. Just a movie! We are living it now with Mitt Romney and Bain Capital. However, Mitt never met a “Vivienne” during his time with Bain Capital. Mitt Romney is the Edward before he

To the editor, I wonder if there is anything that we can do to help preserve Red Hill Inn. I know that there are many, many people who love the inn and are truly sorry to see it go. Many of us have put our heart and soul into it and did our very best to make it the fine place it was. Many of us have enjoyed, multiple times, the experience and ambiance of the surroundings. Many of us have had absolutely marvelous events there — weddings, anniversaries, family get-togethers, meetings etc. Hearing the absolutely beautiful music from a wedding on the front lawn flowing over the fields on a sunny day would bring tears to ones eyes. Being part of a winter afternoon with horse drawn sleighs, people skat-

met Vivienne. At Bain Capital he took over companies for the sole purpose of making money without regard to the families he was destroying. REAL people lost their jobs, retirement plans and health insurance under his leadership in that company. Do we really want this kind of man as president of the U.S.? I don’t. Romney is embracing the Ryan plan that will totally destroy Medicare, Medicaid, and food stamps. These are the programs which Romney called the safety net for the poor and yet under the Ryan plan they will not exist. The Ryan plan also calls for more taxes for the middle class and poor, and reduces taxes for the rich which Mitt Romney supports. This is not a movie it is the future of America.

Romney’s not interested in education, just his $10M investment To the editor, After watching Mitt Romeny visit the school in Philly the other day, I learned a big lesson and that is to listen to what he is saying, too, so I turned on the sound (still had my eyes closed). He really sounded like he was into the education thing and had large scale ideas on how to fix any education problems. Nice photo op shaking hands with the future of our country while making them think he really cared about them. After all Mitt has kids that went to some of the best schools and did very well at them. Take Tagg for instance. He owns a company called Solomare Capitol, a private equity firm with a subsidiary called TA Associates that invests in for-profit schools. Romney has $10,000,000 (yup, that’s 10-million)

invested with them. Things are getting a little clearer now of his interest in charter and magnet schools. So, while trying to make us think he is interested in education his real interest is in his $10M investment, wonder how much that $10M will be worth if he becomes president. But don’t forget the college level and a place called Full Sail University, a for-profit college in Florida. Tuition is about $80,000, with a low graduation rate and high loan defaults. I don’t think Yale and Harvard need worry about them. But they did invest about $100,000 in his campaign. Ben Franklin is rolling over in his grave. Jon Hoyt Bridgewater.

Cut Jack some slack here; who’s among us right all the time? To the editor: In response to Ken Slater’s response to Jack Stephenson. Cut Jack some slack will you? Jack’s a guy trying to still contribute. Maybe you haven’t been able to see that. Many of us still appreciate his contribution. Maybe he’s earned the right to be a little crotchety. Maybe he’s not always right but who is? Your letter appeared to me to be

mean spirited. You have a bachelor’s degree in English, broadcasting, and speech education, a good lawyer and apparently, in this case, little common sense. Please listen with your heart. If you want to challenge someone please do it on substance, don’t attack the man whom God made. John Demakowski Franklin

from preceding page ors”. Doesn’t that sound like what the government already did with past surplus revenues? Well, so much for your “lockbox” idea. As Mr. Knightly waxes paradoxical as noted above, he reveals his true political leanings with no super power needed by me or the reader. Yes, professional leadership will be needed. Apparently the ones with superior, Democrat leadership. The only qualified politicians capable of using any extra funds for necessary “worthwhile endeavors”. Liberals just can’t help themselves, as Mr. Bill ends his patronizing scolding of Tony by brandishing that familiar leftist refrain of taxing the rich more so they pay their fair share — “the typical CEO made $9.6-million last year, they certainly can afford to pay more”. Let’s

just drive the wealth producers out of state, offshore and overseas, right Bill? After all, the unintended consequences of liberalist compassion has apparently never been observed by the “gang on the left” and thus one can’t reasonably expect them to learn from any past mistakes. Hey Bill, (1) if you tax something, you get less of it; (2) higher taxes and more regulations change peoples behavior in ways that allow them to avoid taxes; (3) lower taxes produce increased revenues. Please pass it on. Oh, and please don’t take my word for it. Check with Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Charles Payne, Mark J. Perry, Stuart Varney, Stephen Moore or google Arthur Laffer and try not to giggle. Russ Wiles Tilton

Life is a really a deep subject still largely unknown by man

To the editor, All through history (His story, Christ the Creator’s story) The Holy Bible has been criticized because it has not gone along with one new theory after another. Over time, the Holy Bible has always been vindicated. The ideas that contradicted it have been found to be wrong and the Holy Bible is proven to actually be the Holy Word of God! Hallelujah! The big controversy today is Creation vs. Evolution (evil-lution). The Holy Bible says that God created, but atheists and other evolutionists clam that life was first begun by atoms that moved at random, accidentally forming a first living cell. “It wasn’t there ; then it was!” That idea, at one time, seemed possible because people had been taught that first life was simple, a tradition that started when microscopes were primitive. People could look at a drop from a mud puddle and see little cells scooting around in the water. These cells, when enlarged a bit by the primitive microscopes of the day, looked simple. Some people though, “Anything that simple could have begun by accident!” With that ignorance, atheism seemed possible! But now we have discovered that every single-celled bacterium must accomplish, within it’s one cell, the same task we accomplish using the trillions of cells in our bodies: eating, digestion, metabolism, waste removal, reproduction — and even thinking — all within one cell!” To do all this, even some of the parts of a cell are really complex. There never was a simple cell! One complex cell part is called DNA. It directs much of what goes on in a cell. DNA is too complex for anyone to really under-

stand. Except the Creator, and, unfortunately for the poor atheists, even this single part of a cell is too complex to have formed by accident! But DNA, to do anything at all, depends on other parts of a living cell. By itself it is helpless. RNA, proteins, and little manufacturing and transport machines are among the cell parts that are necessary for DNA to do its work. Could all these complex cell parts just happen to bump together to form the first life? No! These cell parts only exist where there are living cells to make them! Even if you have all the parts, as in a dead whatever — anything from a dead single cell to a dead elephant — on one can make the dead parts live. Except God. Life is a deep subject still largely unknown by man. God reserves that for Himself. The theory of evolution is often supported by schools and textbooks which claim evolution started with “simple cells” which somehow just popped up and then evolved. Any such statement is obsolete and based on ignorance! Simple cells don’t exist. They have never existed! Modern discoveries have proven that cells can’t just pop up on their own! In fact, the parts, themselves are so complicated that scientists can’t make them — much less give them life. So, it seems obvious that someone with a better mind than humans must have made them! Living animals and plants are like God’s signature on creation. Only God can make them. For more information to help you counter the lie of evolution, Thomas Heinze has written two paperbacks, How Life Began, and Vanishing Proofs of Evolution. Bishop Paul W. Blake Laocnia

Problem with the world is the little sins that are in our hearts

To the editor, In response to Hillarie Goldstein’s letter, “One inequity we share...” Nice try Hillarie. The response that I was referring to starts, oh God please forgive me of my sins. It seems that we as a nation have succumbed to what I will call the Lenny Bruce syndrome. “Never robbed any churches or cut off any babies heads”, so I guess I’m okay. This kind of thinking is reinforced by the television programming that we watch. We can watch “Criminal Minds” or any of the the many other such shows that are on and we come away feeling justified, that we are not like the fiends in the show and therefore we’re okay. So when it comes to solving the problem of evil in the world we point our finger outward. It’s the rich people, the whites, the blacks, the Hispanics, if we could have changed Hitler’s upbringing, if we can change the way conservatives bring up their children. In reality the problem with the world is the little and sometimes not so little sins in each of our hearts. It’s the envy, the pride, the lust, the jealousy, the foolishness,the greed, the

hatred, that we have in our hearts. There’s a devil too, but if we can win the battle over sin, we win the battle with him also. How do we win the battle over sin? We win it though Jesus Christ, by turning away from our sins and turning to Christ and accepting His forgiveness of our sins, by receiving with joy the redemption He gives to us through the ransom He has provided for us by His death on the cross. If you will ask Him to forgive your sins and for Him to come into your heart, He will forgive your sins and His Holy Spirit will take up residence in your heart. Yet determine well that you want to live the rest of your life for Him, for accepting Christ is the beginning of your walk with Him, and continuing with Him to the end is what will gain you eternal life. In this will the world be healed, yet still much must transpire before that time. Perhaps you weren’t looking for so simple a solution. Everyone who is sincerely looking for the truth must receive it as it is, not as you wish it to be. John Demakowski Franklin

GILFORD from page one Selectman’s Chair Gus Benavides, to which Dunn said the selectmen have two clear choices: go to a judge or include a non-appropriation clause in the article. According to Selectman John O’Brien, the issue now is one of timing. Selectmen, by state law, must vote to recommend or not recommend a warrant article that would allow the town to lease a pumper tanker for $441,00 over 10-year period before June 5 or the warrant cannot be posted in time for a June deliberative session and a July 31 vote. To get the warrant article posted in time, selectmen will meet or June 5 at 6 p.m., they will adjourn, let the Budget Committee members vote on whether or not they recommend its passage, and then go back into session and vote to approve or not approve the passage of the new warrant article. Dunn said he would call for a BudCom meeting and “hope there’s a quorum.” Selectmen didn’t vote last night because it was late in the day when Town Attorney Walter Mitchell and an attorney from the Local Government Center — approached initially by Budcom member David Horvath Sr., — began their flurry of legal correspondence with Dunn. Dunn said he wanted to square the two seemingly opposite legal opinions about the legality of the special town meeting and committing the town to 10 years of future appropriations and selectmen agreed that waiting, even if it means putting the meeting off for a few months or taking it to a judge, would be the wisest course of action. According to a memorandum given by Mitchell to give to the Budget Committee two nights ago, the

“Selectmen have the authority the call a special town meeting as any time, for any purpose, consistent with (state laws).” Mitchell said the exception was the ability to raise and appropriate funds outside of annual town meeting and “in this case, to my understanding the proposed lease/purchase contact that is contemplated requires no payment of funds in 2012. Therefore, since no funds need to be raised or appropriated in this fiscal year, the approval of the court is not necessary.” Mitchell also said he understood that his opinion was in line with Department of Revenue Administrator policy, although it apparently was Dunn who spoke with DRA about the matter and not Mitchell. Not so fast, said LGC lawyer Christine Fillmore, who wrote that she was “Not aware of any statute that would give the town the authority to hold a meeting without court permission (other than the regular town meeting) in order to appropriate money,” she wrote. Dunn said she sent an expanded version of her reasoning to him and he forwarded it to Mitchell. The delay comes because as of last night’s selectmen’s meeting, Mitchell hasn’t responded to Fillmore’s expanded response. “Our intention is not to go around a judge but we don’t think it can be done (in time),” O’Brien said noting the town, without Engine 4, has a severely diminished firefighting capabilities. In a previous meeting, Fire Chief Steve Carrier has said he made arrangement with surrounding communities and altered the mutual aid response system to reflect Engine 4’s absence. Both O’Brien and Selectman Kevin Hayes have

said they believe a sitting judge would grant the emergency meeting, as does at least one member of the Budget Committee. The issue of a new pumper tanker came to the fore last year when the Board of Fire Engineers recommended to selectmen that the town replace the Fire Department’s 25-year old attack vehicle. Selectmen put the warrant article before the Budget Committee but many of its members challenged the need and also put into question some concern they had with maintenance of the current Fire Department equipment. Ultimately the Budcom voted 6-to-6 not to recommend spending $450,000 on the fire truck, the selectmen voted 3-to-0 not to recommend its passage and the article went down to defeat in at the SB-2 ballot vote last March, voters opting instead to repair Engine 4 and keeping it in service for a few more years before replacing it. According to Bill Akerley, the chair of the Board of Fire Engineers, when Engine 4 was sent for repairs, Lakes Region Fire Apparatus saw that when they tore down the pump, it was corroded beyond what they initially thought and coupled with other repairs the total costs of repair could be as much as $90,000. Additionally, the Commissioner of Safety ordered Engine 4 off the road because of a critical brake problem.

SALMONELLA from page 2 too, because the bacteria can be in their feces. Salmonella outbreaks have been linked to hatcheries for more than 50 years. And health officials have long warned that people can get salmonella from touching chickens — especially children, who tend to put their fingers in their mouths. Indeed, the CDC says children under 5 shouldn’t be allowed to touch chickens at all. Health officials also advise people not to bring birds into their homes and to wash their hands thoroughly after handling live poultry. About 20 hatcheries mail live chicks overnight in the U.S., supplying not only feed stores and farms but amateurs with backyard coops. The mail-order houses have been seeing record sales in recent years. “It’s all part of this greener, healthier lifestyle,” said Behravesh, a veterinary epidemiologist. Jonah McDonald, a 32-year-old Atlanta man who keeps three hens and insists a backyard egg tastes better, said he does not know of anyone who has gotten salmonella from handling chickens. “The kids in my neighborhood come over and feed scraps to my chickens,” he said. “It’s a real Always wondering when your car might break down?

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, May 31, 2012— Page 11

DEMOCRATS from page one edly “and for all the work you’re going to do.” “We have to merge together and be strong,” insisted Billy Shaheen, standing in for gubernatorial candidate Maggie Hassan. “We must win this election. A defeat is not acceptable,” he continued. “Remember Craig Benson,” he asked, “and the damage he did.” Turning to the Republican frontrunner for governor Ovide Lamontagne and Bill O’Brien, the controversial Speaker of the House, Shaheen, husband of U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen, warned that if the two are returned to the Statehouse “you will not recognize New Hampshire.” The slate of candidates for the four Laconia seats in the House of Representatives offered a sign that the party may be rebounding from being routed two years ago. Along with former district court Judge David Huot, Matt’s father, who announced his candidacy earlier this month, Robert Fisher, Charlie Smith and Chad Vaillancourt — all young and making their political debut — have joined the ticket. Fisher is the chief operating officer of Same Day Computer and owns two of the firm’s six franchises. Oddly enough, the founder of the company, Josh Youseff, also from Laconia, is running for the state Senate as a Republican. Fisher said that his priority will be to increase investment in “commercial infrastructure,” especially broadband, and public educa-

tion. Squaring the circle of freedom and equality, Fisher said that people must be “treated equally to achieve freedom.” A financial advisor by profession, Smith was raised in Laconia by working parents compelled to turn to welfare, from whom he took the the value of independence, diligence and compassion. He said that he was troubled by the conduct and decisions of the Republican majority in the Legislature and decided to run because “we need to stand up for the poor and middle class.” A lieutenant in the Laconia Fire Department and president of the Laconia Professional Firefighters, Chad Vaillancourt said that he and his wife, a school teacher, have always been proud of their professions and were offended to be called “thugs” and “a burden to society” by some Republican lawmakers. As a firefighter, Vaillancourt remarked that he often saw slices of life hidden to most. “I’ve seen children sleeping on the floor,” he said. “It’s not their fault. We’re failing them. That’s why I’m running.” From Gilford, BIll Johnson, who was elected to the House in 2002 and 2008, will run for the sixth time in in tandem with newcomer Lisa DiMartino. The mother of a son with cognitive disabilities, she said that she has taken “a journey of advocacy” on behalf of those with disabilities and intends to make the House the next stop.

Carol Shea-Porter, who is seeking to return to Congress from the First District after being ousted after two terms, was impressed with the House candidates.. “The Republicans see with their eyes, but not with their hearts,” she told Vaillancourt. “You see with your eyes and your heart. That’s the difference.” Jackie Cilley of Barrington, who with Hassan of Exeter, is one of two women vying for the Democratic nomination for governor, topped the bill. A native of Berlin, she recalled that the once thriving city has shrunk to less than 9,000 people and remarked “what I saw in Berlin and the North County is what I see New Hampshire becoming. The fix,” she said, “is to make the investments we need,” stressing “strategic investments in education, transportation and communications infrastructure.” Ciley called the pledge not to support a personal income or general sales tax “the biggest block” to investing in the future. Unlike Hassan, she has declined to take the pledge. That prompted some gentle advice from Shaheen, who said “it is difficult to win without taking the pledge the first time.” Recalling the career of his wife Jeanne, who served three terms as governor, he explained that after taking the pledge, she won sufficient trust among voters to open a conversation see next page

LMS from page one level of competition and intensity, both in games and in practice. The program educates students about how to exert themselves at a higher level without being sidelined by an injury. Two years ago, the school began hosting Family Fun nights. Held three times each school year, these nights offer students, their families and staff the opportunity to enjoy a healthy meal together and then engage in an evening of physical games. The newest feather in their caps is the Morning Activity program, which allows students to sign up for two days per week of an activity. Activities rotate every two weeks and, with two sections of activities offered per week, up a quarter of the student body has volunteered to come to school 45 minutes early for a physical game. Hohenberger and Thornton pick games that are likely new to the students, but with rules that are easy to learn. Floor hockey is the current morning activity, they’ve been surprised to find that team handball — a sport played professionally in Europe and at the Olympic games — has been the most popular activity so far.

“We need to offer healthy opportunities for our students,” said McCollum. National trends of childhood obesity are visible in Belknap County students, and continued inactivity could put them at risk of diabetes and other chronic health issues. “If we have an ability to make an impact, we feel compelled to do something.” Hohenberger said part of their job is to reach students who might not think of themselves as athletic. “Our focus is to get them moving,” she said. The programs have been developed with consultation of outside groups such as Healthy Eating Active Living New Hampshire, represented locally by Tammy Levesque. She noted that Hohenberger and Thornton are teaching habits and strategies that will continue to bear fruit long after students have left the school. “That’s something kids can take with them after school.” What does the award mean to the teachers? Thornton answered, “That we’re doing our job. If you have a passion for working for students, you want to do the best in your field.”

SYRIA from page 2 President Bashar Assad that began in March 2011 has morphed into an armed insurgency. Activists say as many as 13,000 people have been killed since the revolt began. In the wake of last weekend’s massacre in Houla, in which nearly half of the 108 dead were children, the United States and Western nations expelled Syrian diplomats in protest — a move Syria’s state-run media denounced Wednesday as “unprecedented hysteria.” The massacre drew continued harsh criticism Wednesday, even from Syria’s closest ally Iran, with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad saying that anyone responsible for the killings should be pun-

ished. “I’m not excluding anyone from this responsibility,” Ahmadinejad told France 24 TV station. U.N. investigators and survivors have blamed proregime gunmen for at least some of the carnage in Houla, a collection of poor farming villages in central Homs province, saying men in civilian clothes gunned down people in the streets and stabbed women and children in their homes. The Syrian government denied its troops were behind the killings and blamed “armed terrorists.” Damascus had said it would conclude its own investigation into the Houla deaths by Wednesday but it was not clear if the findings would be made public.

from preceding page of a general sales tax. He said that not taking the pledge would invite charges from Republicans and warned “that is a difficult conversation to have in an election.” But, while noting the difference between Cilley and Hassan, Shaheen urged Democrats to “get behind a

candidate you like and work hard for her or her. We’re going to win no matter which woman wins.” Andrew Hosmer of Laconia, making his second bid for the state Senate in District 7, chastised the “radical Republicans” for welcoming guns in the Statehouse, restricting women’s right to abortion, pressing for a right-to-work law, downshifting the cost of education to municipalities and slashing investment in higher education. “They are jeopardizing the future of our state,” he declared. “I’m running for the state Senate because I got mad,” said Bob Lamb, the West Point graduate and retired bank executive from Holderness running in District 2. He singled the economy, education and health care as the top priorities for state government and claimed the GOP majority has taken the wrong steps on all three. He said that the Republicans refuse to make necessary investments, reduced the tobacco tax but slashed spending for the university system and community colleges and reduced reimbursements to hospitals while saddling them with a tax. “In the private sector people who perform like this are fired,” he said. “We need to fire some people and we need to hire some people.” In 2010, the GOP took both Senate seats in the Lakes Region, which Democrats had held for two terms, and all 18 House seats in Belknap County.

Inter-Lakes grad raising funds to buy therapy dog that’ll help her cope with epilepsy while at college By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

MEREDITH — Violet Snook wants to go to college, but before she can enroll she must raise the money, not for herself, but for her roommate, “Forest”, a smooth coated collie. An aspiring artist and writer, Violet, who graduated from Inter-Lakes High School with the class of 2011, has both epilepsy and Lyme disease. Forest is a service dog, who will accompany her everywhere she goes and alert her to the onset of seizure, providing her time to take her medication to forestall it or seek a safe haven to endure it. Last spring, like other members of her class, Violet was looking forward to visiting college campuses when she was compelled to shelve her ambitions as the Lyme disease appeared to increase the frequency and intensity of her seizures. “It was very difficult,” she said, “admitting that I couldn’t go to college and questioning if I could be independent. I had a very hard time last summer,” she continued. “I couldn’t leave the house.” Then Violet said she turned herself to thinking how she achieve the measure of independence she

wanted and realized she would need a partner. She approached Canine Partners for Life, a service dog program in Pennsylvania. “Even though I couldn’t leave the house,” she declared, “I could take control of something.” Violet applied for the program, was thoroughly screened and ultimately accepted. “I had always been afraid of dogs,” she laughed. “Until I met Forest last year. He came right up to me, nuzzled and sniffed me as if to ask who ARE you in his own see next page

Heat survive Rondo attack; win 115-11 in OT MIAMI (AP) — The biggest postseason comeback in Miami Heat franchise history wasn’t enough. The Heat needed more — and got it, digging deep to take a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference finals. LeBron James scored 34 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, Dwyane Wade scored 23 and the Heat rallied from 15 down to beat the Boston Celtics 115-111 in overtime on Wednesday night. Mario Chalmers scored 22 for the Heat, who won despite an unbelievable night by Rajon Rondo. The Celtics guard played all 53 minutes and scored 44 points, dished out 10 assists and grabbed eight rebounds. Paul Pierce scored 21 points, Kevin Garnett added 18 and Ray Allen 13 for Boston. Allen’s 3-pointer with 34.3 seconds left tied the game at 99-all. James missed two shots, first a layup — he got the rebound of his own miss — and then a jumper on the final possession of regulation, and to overtime they went. Game 3 is Friday in Boston. The Heat had come back from 14 points down in playoff games twice before, first in Game 6 of the 2006 NBA finals — their title clincher — and again last season against Philadelphia. And this one was slipping away, more than once. James also two free throws 21 seconds into overtime, and Miami looked in trouble. The scoring dossier in overtime began like this: Rondo scored, Heat tied it, Rondo scored, Heat tied it, Rondo scored, Heat tied it.

When Rondo missed a layup with 1:33 left, Miami took advantage, with Udonis Haslem getting a dunk to put the Heat up 105-103. And after a turnover on the next Boston possession, Wade drove the lane, hit the deck and watched as his layup bounced on the rim and dropped through. Garnett stood over Wade and glared, to no avail. Wade hit the free throw, and Miami was up 110-105 with 59.7 seconds left. On a night where the Heat missed 16 free throws — including at least four by James in crucial situations — they would survive. Miami was down by 15 in the first half and by as many as 11 in the third quarter, before a pair of 3-pointers by James started a comeback. Wade made consecutive jumpers midway through the third to shake off a slow start to his night and get the Heat within three both times, and the 2006 NBA finals MVP set up Haslem for a three-point play with 2:55 left that gave Miami its first lead since the opening minutes, 73-71. As Haslem’s shot dropped, Wade spun at midcourt and punched the air. More highlights followed. Miami’s lead got to as much as seven in the third after James blocked Pierce’s shot near the rim, sending the ball high into the air and starting a sequence that was capped by a three-point play from Wade, pushing the margin to 78-71. It capped a 12-0 run for the Heat, who took an 81-75 lead into the fourth.

from preceding page unique way.” Violet explained that epileptics undergo chemical changes in advance of their seizures that emit a scent that trained dogs can sense. After she was accepted into the program, a piece of clothing she was wearing during a seizure was sent to Forest with which he has since been training to respond to Violet. Next month Violet will travel to Pennsylvania where she and Forest will undergo an intensive training course lasting three weeks, which will be followed by six shorter classes during their first year together, to forge the partnership that will ensure her independence. In the meantime, Violet, with support from Lucy Chaplin, her sixth grade special education teacher, has taken it upon herself to raise the funds she needs to complete the service dog program, which includes a donation to Canine Partners for Life and lodging and transportation for the training sessions.

“I decided to write a book,” she said. Recently published, “Behind the Artist’s Eyes,” tells of the personal and spiritual resources she has marshaled to free herself from disease. Her book is currently on sale at the Trinity Church or on-line at and may soon be available at local bookstores. “I would also like to speak to different civic organizations about my experience and about service dogs, to give something back to the community for the support they have shown to me,” she said. “She’s done all this totally on her own,” Chaplin said. “It’s all 100-percent Violet.” She added that donations can be made directly to Canine Partners for Life in Violet’s honor by visiting the organization’s website at or calling 1-610-869-4902. Violet hopes to enroll at Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida, where she intends to combine her passions for writing and art by studying animation. “I was inspired by “The Incredibles” and decided I want to work for Pixar,” she said.

Set in the early 1960’s with rock and roll all the rage, the play tracks the lives of Albert, a young talent agent with an idea to score a publicity coup for his rock star client who is about to be inducted in the army, and the MacAfee’s, a typical American family with a teenage daughter with stars in her eyes and a musical fever burning in her soul. With such memorable songs as Put on a Happy Face, One Boy, and A Lot of Livin’ To Do, and enough bounding energy to

lift the roof off, this show is sure to delight audiences of young and old alike. Under the experienced tutelage of Directors Jule Finley and Matt Potter, even the freshest novice to the stage will be sure to shine in this energetic and vivacious production. Everyone with a wish to participate in a theatrical “happening” is welcome to come and try out. Please bring shoes appropriate for dancing, and if you wish to sing a song of your choice, you may sing a cappella or bring a device on which to play your music. The only requirements to be eligible for selection are a schedule which allows for rehearsal time during the summer and performances August 23-25, and August 30-September 1, membership in Footlight, and a burning desire to have fun, showcase a talent, or discover a new one. Come audition to be part of the building tradition of community theater performing at the venerable and historic Franklin Opera House.

Names needed for care packages to be sent to soldiers serving in Afghanistan

SANBORNTON — The Missions Committee of Sanbornton Congregational Church, UCC, has sent dozens of “gift” boxes to military personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan. Each box must be sent to a specific person, and the committee has run out of names, according to Ann EmersonKnott, who is asking people to provide names of relatives or friends serving in Afghanistan so that they can send him or her one of the packages. “We send snacks that travel well such as beef jerky, boxed cookies, hard candy,

licorice; crackers and chips and other items such as socks, books, magazines, puzzles and games. Socks are always needed because of the heat and rough terrain. We include baby powder made with cornstarch, an old farmer’s trick, to sprinkle in socks to absorb moisture and keep feet clean and dry in 100 degree heat while haying. Daytime temperatures in Afghanistan reach 120 degrees,’’ says Emerson-Knott. To provide names contact: Ann Emerson-Knott, 934-4256 or by email at anngram@metrocastnet.

LACONIA — The New Hampshire Humane Society (NHHS), in partnership with VCA Lakes Region Veterinary Hospital, will spotlight a variety of cats and kittens available for adoption at the first ever Summer Adopt a Thon, exclusively featuring furry felines, on Saturday June 2 from 10 a.m to 3 p.m. at the LRVH facility on Union Avenue in Laconia. Following this special feline adoption initiative, originally launched by Humane Society of the United States as a nationwide trend some years ago, the NHHS hopes to adopt as many cats and kittens as possible during this one day adoption extravaganza. June is tagged nationally as Adopt A Shelter Cat Month, by all in the animal welfare industries, from California to Maine and all points in-between. Shelter spokesperson, Marylee Gorham stated, “while we have always fully embraced this feline June promotion, we have been somewhat stymied by the motorcycle event that falls right in the middle of our adoption efforts – translating into very slow, quiet days at the shelter during Bike Week. Thinking strategically, ‘let’s bring the mountain to Mohammed’ this year we thought lets hold a summer adoption event at the beginning of the month, and still welcome bikers if they happen to drop by later on”.

Tickets for 2012 Moultonborough House Tour on sale June 1 MOULTONBOROUGH — Tickets will be available for sale starting Friday, June 1 at the Moultonborough Library and Bayswater Books in Center Harbor for the 2012 Moultonborough House Tour to be held Thursday, June 28, presented by Friends of the Library. Needed directions and locations will be provided with the purchased $35 ticket. It’s been three years since the previous tour and the Library Friends are ready and eager to present a fabulous house tour this season with six different, interesting, never shown before homes. The most difficult job according to Mil Toczko of the Library Friends is to find willing home owners, who would be proud to show their domicile to the public, which is easier said than done. Friend’s President Marianne Rapp had just the duo to accept this huge challenge to head the tour. Jane Harrington and Carole Smith make a fine, dynamic team and agreed to co-chair this event, with the help of many Friends members. She said there are always unspoken heroes, who do a lot of work behind the scenes to bring these events to successful fruition. Helping and contributing much in various ways are: Marianne Rapp, Noel Ainscow, Susan Amiss, Kathy Seder, Jordan Prouty, Dotti and Roger Simpson, Paul Smith and the dedicated loyal Library Staff, plus many of their club members. She said many volunteers will be needed at each home to welcome guests and answer questions, as well as some volunteer men to direct parking at each residence. Volunteers will get a discounted ticket. Those who would like to volunteer can call: 253-6946 or 253-4044. One of the homes on the tour is a delightful lakeside home designed and built by the owners, formerly of Eagle’s Peak, which has a bit of everything and is situated on a beautifully landscaped plot overlooking Greens Basin. As one approaches the house through flanking granite lamp posts, the original metal art work above the garage doors, will catch your eye. This is a new home full of unique collections and highly individual ideas. The main floor is a captivating open concept that flows from dining and kitchen areas to living space and out onto a screened porch with scenic views. The master bed room boasts an adjoining sleeping porch. Both the upper and lower floors are dramatically decorated with fascinating historical pieces and eclectic N.H. fauna. The proceeds from this event will help the library acquire supplemental furnishings, equipment and help run seasonal activities. Bec ome and a MEM rece BER ive 1 by J mon uly 1 th F , 201 2 ree.

‘12’ free film showing at Laconia Public Library on Monday, June 4

LACONIA — The Laconia Human Relations Committee, in cooperation with the Laconia Public Library, presents “12”, another in their International Films Series, on Monday, June 4 at 6:10 pm at the Laconia Public Library. Please note the early start due to the length of the movie. The movie “12” is based on the story of the well-known American film, Twelve Angry Men. Here we have a modern day depiction of a Russian/ Chechen jury grappling with their own issues of living in a society struggling to recover from years of Communist totalitarian life while judging the crime of a Chechen youth. The young man is on trial for the murder of his stepfather. The jurors are divided by their own racism and prejudice in trying to come to consensus. This Russian film is by Nikita Mikhalkov. The Chechen/Russian war is brought center stage through flashbacks. The difference of the life experiences of the jurors highlights how they view the youth charged with murder, how Chechen is seen as a country, and how the jurors look at their future in Russia.

One by one, each man takes center stage to confront, connect, and confess while the accused awaits a verdict. As they deliberate, the accused revisits his heartbreaking journey through war in another series of powerful flashbacks. Of note is the fact that Russian juries must come to consensus on a verdict. Carol Pierce, of the Laconia Human Relations Committee, says, “What remains with me upon seeing this movie is to understand the lingering effects personally on Russian society (or any society) of years of totalitarian repression; repression that never really goes away. How one makes sense of such long-term trauma and inhumane treatment in order to survive day by day is the story of the survival of all humanity under stress.” The Laconia International Film Series is open free to everyone. Informal discussion follows the film. Light snacks are provided. Feel free to bring a cushion for comfort in viewing the movie. For more information, contact Carol Pierce at or Lovina Ellsworth at

Your lucky numbers are: 6, 49, 2, 39 and 18.


ARIES (March 21-April 19). You can let the past inform you without getting stuck there. Dwelling on the past would only prevent you from seizing the glorious opportunities of the here and now. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If your duties feel exhausting, consider taking a break from them altogether. There are times when doing nothing is far more productive than wearing yourself out. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Even if your current situation isn’t ideal (and whose is?), you wouldn’t want to go back to where you were. Remind yourself of all you’re grateful for and all you’ve been able to create in your life. CANCER (June 22-July 22). A curtain closing doesn’t have to mean the end of the play, so don’t let it be a disappointing experience. More than likely, the curtain will open again after a complete change of scenery has occurred. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your ideas are stellar, but they may not be quite ready to present to the world. Keep honing them. Test them out on your core group of trusted cohorts. If you don’t have such a group, start putting one together. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A task no longer brings you joy, and you’d just as soon not do it -- but your high level of responsibility won’t allow you to bail, so you’re stuck. Change your attitude and push through. There’s joy to be wrung out of this yet. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The moon favors you now, and so will other people. The consummate egalitarian, you may not be extremely comfortable with favoritism, but you’d do well to take advantage of it. This doesn’t

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, May 31, 2012— Page 21

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Thursday, May 31, the 152nd day of 2012. There are 214 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 31, 1962, former Nazi official Adolf Eichmann was hanged in Israel a few minutes before midnight for his role in the Holocaust. (Eichmann’s remains were cremated, the ashes scattered in the Mediterranean Sea.) On this date: In 1790, President George Washington signed into law the first U.S. copyright act. In 1859, the Big Ben clock tower in London went into operation, chiming for the first time. In 1889, more than 2,000 people perished when a dam break sent water rushing through Johnstown, Pa. In 1910, the Union of South Africa was founded. In 1911, the hull of the British liner RMS Titanic was launched from its building berth at the Port of Belfast, less than a year before the ship’s fateful maiden voyage. In 1912, U.S. Sen. Henry M. “Scoop” Jackson was born in Everett, Wash. In 1941, “Tobacco Road,” a play about an impoverished Southern family based on the novel by Erskine Caldwell, closed on Broadway after a run of 3,182 performances. In 1961, South Africa became an independent republic as it withdrew from the British Commonwealth. In 1970, a magnitude 7.9 earthquake in Peru claimed an estimated 20,000 lives. In 1977, the trans-Alaska oil pipeline, three years in the making, was completed. In 1985, at least 88 people were killed, more than 1,000 injured, as over 40 tornadoes swept through parts of Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York and Ontario, Canada, during an 8-hour period. In 1994, the United States announced it was no longer aiming long-range nuclear missiles at targets in the former Soviet Union. One year ago: Angered by civilian casualties, Afghan President Hamid Karzai said he would no longer allow NATO airstrikes on houses. Former Bosnian Serb military commander Ratko Mladic (RAHT’-koh MLAH’-dich) was placed in a U.N. detention unit in the Netherlands to await trial on genocide charges. Atlanta became the first city in the NHL’s modern era to lose two hockey teams as the Thrashers’ owners agreed to sell the struggling franchise to a group that moved it to Winnipeg.

Laconia Airport inviting public to Saturday’s Airport Awareness Open House’ GILFORD — While most people recognize airports are a vital area resource, not everyone realizes the value brought to the Lakes Region by the Laconia Municipal Airport. “Some don’t even know we have this gem of an airport right here in Gilford,” said Diane Cooper, airport manager. On Saturday, June 2, the airport will host its First Annual “Airport Awareness” Open House (rain date is June 3) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to highlight these and other resources and benefits the airport provides. Donna Gaudet Hosmer of Laconia discovered the value of this airport on a personal level in 2004 while pregnant with triplets. “I was 37 and it was shaping up to be a very difficult pregnancy,” said Hosmer. “My doctor referred me to a high-risk obstetrician outside of New York who’d successfully delivered thousands of triplets. But my husband and I had a 3-year-old daughter at home and a family business to run here, so I couldn’t just uproot my family and move out of state for nine months.” Hosmer, an owner of AutoServ Dealerships, was able to fly from the Laconia Municipal Airport monthly to see her out of state doctor. “I credit the healthy birth of my three children to having this convenient travel option. I have no doubt the outcome would have been very different if I wasn’t able to get there,” she added. Hosmer now serves as a member of the Laconia Airport Authority. “I knew this airport was a vital business resource because we use the airport regularly to fly to auto auctions up and down the east coast. But after our triplets were born healthy, we had a new-found appreciation for the airport.” The Laconia Municipal Airport is a high quality, friendly, regional airport offering over a mile of paved and lighted runway, terminal building, an Instrument Landing System (ILS), and other stateof-the-art enhancements. “Having a modern airport in our backyard makes it possible and convenient for business and recreational travel to and from the Lakes Region,” says Laconia Mayor Mike Seymour, chairman of the Laconia Airport Authority. The airport brings investment on many levels. “My family invested in a vacation home in the Lakes Region because we love the beauty of the area and enjoy Lake Winnipesaukee. The ability to fly in and out from the local airport five minutes away made this an easy decision,” said Bob Ready, founder/ owner of LSI — a global advanced technology lighting manufacturer. “Airports like Laconia’s are very important to my business. With airline travel being what it is today, we are using smaller airports to move our employees around the country which is a much better use of their time,” says Ready. The airport also serves as a source for future growth and development; bringing jobs, construction contracts and increased business opportunities to our regional and local economy. “Over the last six years, the airport’s funded over $12-million dollars in improvements and enhancements through federal general aviation grants,” said Cooper. “These grants bring sorely needed jobs and growth opportunities to our community.” Even less well-known is the fact that this local airport offers aviation education for adults and children, hosts medical and angel flights that help save lives, as well as offers summer STEM-based aviation and aerospace academies for youths. STEM programs like the ACE Academy, which began conducting week long academies last summer, “inspire students to excel in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) by relating those subjects to exciting real world career opportunities.” said Bill Seed, a founder of this educational program, as well as a recreational pilot and local commercial realtor. “Honoring aviation’s past while soaring to the future” is the motto of The Aviation and Aerospace Education Center at Winnipesaukee, based

at the Laconia Municipal Airport. “Eventually the Center hopes to build a ‘Children’s Dream of Flight Museum’ at the airport,” says Seed. “The museum would spark aviation interests in children at an early age with play elements including toys, crafts, and other camps and programs of interest to young people. We’re currently exploring a Build-A-Plane

program for high school students.” This summer the center will once again offer its FAA ACE (Aviation Career Education) Academy to students from 12 – 17 years of age. The ACE Academy offers a coed week-long program beginning Monday, July 16 through Friday, July 20, and new this year is a concurrent program for girls only. “By emphasizing a ‘Girls Only’ program, we hope to draw more young women into careers in aviation,” says Cooper who is the only female airport manager in New Hampshire and one of only eight female airport managers in all of New England. The ACE Academy tuition is $375 per student and financial aid is offered. Students experience hands on learning, flight simulation, aviation and aerospace field trips, as well as 30 minutes of actual flight time. The Academy hosts guest speakers who cover topics including careers in general, military and commercial aviation. “We are actively soliciting scholarships to help support the ACE Academy program for needy students. “The general aim is to generate enthusiasm for flying at an early age and we are excited to emphasize a program for girls only this year,” says Cooper. More information about the ACE Academy is available at or if readers are interested in sponsoring a student call Diane Cooper at 524-5003.

Dear Annie: My son has been dating “Meredith” for quite some time. They live together at college and plan to marry next year. I don’t know how to handle this girl. She never says thank you when you give her a gift, even in person, or when we cook dinner for her. And when the rest of us get up to clear the table, she just sits there. It’s awkward for me to ask her to help. She apparently was brought up without manners. I have discussed this with my son, who doesn’t seem to care, but it irks me to no end. Worse, my son always seems to be taking care of her. He rubs her back, clears her plate and brings her drinks and snacks. She never responds in kind. This is going to create a lot of tension at future family gettogethers, and I want to say something before they marry. Do I just tell her my feelings directly and let the chips fall? -- New Jersey Dear New Jersey: Please don’t. It’s possible that Meredith is horrifically shy and cannot bring herself to respond in a normal way. That would require that you patiently teach her. But if that’s not the case, you have a rude, indulged girl who isn’t going to change unless your son insists on it. And he has no intention of doing so. Talk to your son as neutrally as possible. Ask if Meredith treats you so poorly on purpose and, if so, why. Ask what you can do to improve things. But we urge you to do it without condemning Meredith, which would force your son to defend her. The point is to make him think about what his future with her will be like. If nothing changes, please find something to appreciate about this girl even if it kills you. The alternative is to risk alienating your son. Dear Annie: I am 45 years old, have never been married and

do not have kids. I am a straight man looking for a long-term relationship, but have had no luck finding the right lady. I have tried several dating websites, to no avail. I keep meeting divorced women with issues and baggage far beyond what I can handle. My longest relationship lasted nine months and ended abruptly. I have no problem dating divorcees with kids, but they don’t seem to want a man in my situation. And I’m having trouble meeting women who have never been married and don’t have children. What can I do? -- Single Too Long Dear Single: There are drawbacks to being 45 with no baggage. People wonder what’s wrong with you. Gather your closest friends and relatives and ask for an honest critique of your date-ability. Be willing to work on their suggestions. (Counseling can help if the issues relate to your basic personality.) The rest is going where the women are. Do some volunteer work. Travel. Join a choir, community theater, church group, political organization, whatever interests you. It will give women a chance to get to know you without the pressure of a relationship -- and vice versa. And keep in mind that becoming a stepfather can be rewarding as well as challenging. Please don’t dismiss it so quickly. Dear Annie: “Hands Tied in Michigan” said her husband works out of state and sometimes doesn’t call when he’s back from dinner with the guys. I say the wife needs to develop her own interests and friends and find ways to keep busy while he is away so she is not so demanding. It is excessive to expect a phone call each night. She sounds insecure and immature. After working all day and having dinner with co-workers, he may be finished talking for the day. Couples who have independent interests add more to their relationship. -- An Independent Wife

Hamel (Barnstead- left), and EST Professor, Wes Golomb (Deerfield- right), to the front at LRCC’s Awards Night held recently. Hamel received the Second Annual David Peel Scholarship awarded to an outstanding EST student who exemplifies the spirit of David Peel, one of the first LRCC EST graduates. “David Peel had great qualities as an EST student at LRCC,” says Golomb, who was one of Peel’s main professors. “He had an uncanny knack for finding and diagnosing building energy issues and solving them. J.P. Hamel was given the Second Annual David Peel Scholarship Award because of similar traits to Peel’s, making Mr. Hamel one of LRCC’s top EST students.” (Courtesy photo)

SANDWICH — Sandwich Home Industries offers two unique classes, one on designing and making silver jewelry and the other on constructing a basket using native New England tree material, brown ash and cherry, in late June. The Forged Silver Bracelet class will be held on Wednesday, June 27 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Sandwich Home Industries gallery. The six- hour class will be led by Sue Mulvey of Marlow. This is her third year teaching, and the course is one of the most popular of all the SHI summer classes. Mulvey, who began her career at the Brookfield (CT) craft center, (under Helga Manning) and then at Haystack Mtn, school (Deer Isl. Maine) under Heika Seppa, brings 44 years of experience to jewelry design, construction and sales. She has attended gemological institute of America programs and as a juried member of the League of NH Craftsmen has her art work in all six galleries as well as the League’s annual Fair in Sunapee. Also coming back for his third year is Eric Taylor, whose class will be held on Saturday, June 30 from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the SHI gallery in Sandwich. This 7 ½ hour class involves creating a basket using native materials. Students will weave hand pounded brown ash over a form into a graceful shape, then

using cherry wood complete the project assembling the oval base and steam bent handle and rims. Both of these classes are open to all levels and all tools will be provided. Taylor’s work has won numerous awards; he is currently featured at the Whitney Museum and Museum of American Folk Art in New York. His “swallowtail nest of boxes” won the Woodworkers Gallery Wood award, and in 2007 he was one of several basket makers featured in the book “Weaving History; A Basket Heritage Project. His work has won numerous awards from the League and his art is available at their Galleries across the state. While featuring these two classes, SHI also reminds the community of the eight children’s classes scheduled this season. The children’s programs will again take place at the Sandwich Children’s Center campus, (54 Maple St.) Information on these and all classes are available through the Sandwich Home Industries website: center-sandwich, or call 284-6831. The gallery, (2846831), is located at 32 Main Street on the green and across from the post office in Center Sandwich, and will be open Monday – Saturday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. The shop will remain open seven days a week through October 21.
