Senate bill now in works to sell State School property to city for $2.16M; hearing scheduled for Tuesday By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Senator David Boutin (R-Hooksett), chairman of the Senate Capital Budget Committee, yesterday introduced legislation that effectively accepts the city’s offer for the former Laconia State School site off North Main Street by directing the Department of Administrative Services (DAS) to offer the property to the city for its fair market value.

The Capital Budget Committee has scheduled a hearing on the legislation, which takes the form of an amendment to a House bill still in the hands of the Senate, on Tuesday, May 8 beginning at 1 p.m. The committee must report the bill to the full Senate by May 10 and the Senate must act on the bill no later than May 18. Last year, the companion bill to the 20122013 state budget directed the DAS to offer the site to the city for “not less than

$10-million,” However, the appraisal of the property prepared by the Bureau of Rightof-Way of the New Hampshire Department of Transportation placed its value at $2.16-million. The appraisal closely matches the value calculated by Russ Thibeault of Applied Economic Research, who appraised much but not all of the site for the city in June, 2011. Last month, after receiving the state’s see STaTE SCHOOL page 8

MOULTONBOROUGH — When a planned Earth Day program at Moultonborough Academy was canceled by administrators due to lack of interest, some students decided to protest. They refused to return to classes at the end of the lunch period and staged a sit-in in the cafeteria. That prompted Andrew Coppinger, principal of the high school, to go to the cafeteria and tell the protesters why the Earth Day program had been called off, and in no uncertain terms condemn their demonstration as being disruptive and showing immaturity on their part. What Coppinger did not know until later is that one student with a smartphone was videoing the princisee VidEO page 10

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Those who knew and loved Junior Seau say they didn’t see this coming. “This is not anything I thought he would ever do,” former San Diego Chargers safety Miles McPherson said. Like many of Seau’s friends, McPherson was still trying to comprehend the death of the former star NFL linebacker the day after his body was found inside his home in suburban Oceanside with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest. The San Diego County medical examiner ruled the death a suicide on Thursday. “Junior is a warrior. He played 20 years in the NFL as a linebacker. You have to be a warrior. Warriors conquer problems they face and they run at them,” McPherson said Thursday. McPherson, now the pastor at the Rock Church in San Diego, said that’s why Seau’s see SEAU page 9

BEIJING (AP) — The diplomatic disarray deepened Thursday after a blind activist reversed course and asked to leave China with his family, abandoning an arduously negotiated agreement even though he had left the protection of the U.S. Embassy and was in a Beijing hospital ringed by Chinese police. Bewildered and alone with his wife and children, Chen Guangcheng periodically switched on a cell phone to tell friends and foreign media he felt scared and wanted to

go abroad, and that he had not seen U.S. officials in over a day. He even called in to a congressional hearing in Washington, telling lawmakers he wanted to meet with U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. “I hope I can get more help from her,” Chen said. Chen’s high-profile effort to keep his case in the public eye served to increase pressure on Washington and embarrass Beijing as it hosted Clinton and other U.S. officials for annual talks on global political

and economic hotspots. Taken aback at Chen’s change of heart, U.S. diplomats spent much of Thursday trying to confirm that the family wanted to leave, and they eventually said they would try to help him. Still, it remained unclear how they might do so now that he has left the embassy, or whether the Chinese would be willing to renegotiate a deal that both sides thought had been settled a day earlier.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Now that 13 people have been charged in the hazing death of a Florida A&M University drum major, the future is murky for a famed marching band that has performed at the Grammys, presidential inaugurations and Super Bowls. The band was suspended immediately after Robert Champion’s death in November, and even the governor says it’s far too soon for the Marching 100 to take the field again. Champion’s mother, Pam, took

that even a step further: She said the band should be disbanded so the university can “clean house.” She and the family’s attorney contend there is a vast effort among students and others to cover up who is responsible for her son’s death. “If you don’t clean the filth out it just stays there,” she said Thursday. “You can’t move forward as business as usual.” Eleven people — all band members — have been charged with felony hazing resulting in death, said Gretl Plessinger, a

Florida Department of Law Enforcement spokeswoman. Eight of them had been arrested by Thursday. Two others face misdemeanor charges. Much like its renowned band, questions remain about the future of the school in Florida’s capital city. There is still an ongoing criminal investigation into the finances of the band, as well as a probe by the state university system into whether top officials at the university ignored past warnsee HAZING page 5

Arizona neo-Nazi found to Welfare fraud check bill met with skepticism in Senate have killed 4, then himself

GILBERT, Ariz. (AP) — Many considered Jason Todd Ready to be the most high-profile neo-Nazi in Arizona. He led groups of heavily armed civilians into the desert to look for illegal immigrants as he repeatedly tried to win public office. But Ready’s beliefs and actions got so extreme, including statements that land mines would be a good way to stop border crossers, that the state’s most conservative politicians distanced themselves from him. Unwelcome among Republicans, Ready ran for sheriff in January as a Democrat. He continued to lead immigration patrols and posted Facebook updates, but there was little to suggest his personal life was in turmoil. On Wednesday, police said, Ready, a burly 39-yearold who went by “JT,” shot and killed four people, including a 16-month-old girl, in the Phoenix suburb of Gilbert where he lived. He then turned the gun on himself. The dead included Lisa Lynn Mederos, 47, who was Ready’s girlfriend; her daughter Amber Nieve Mederos, 23; and Amber’s boyfriend, Jim Franklin Hiott, 24. The child was found alive but was pronounced dead at a hospital. Gilbert police Sgt. Bill Balafas said a woman believed to be Lisa Mederos called 911 around 1 p.m. Wednesday asking for the police to come to the house. Not long after, the operator heard shots fired and the line went dead.

CONCORD (AP) — Senate budget writers expressed skepticism Thursday that a proposed system to require welfare recipients and applicants to go through a new verification check will save New Hampshire money by detecting fraud. Witnesses told the Finance Committee the cost savings aren’t known because no one knows how much staff time it would take to cross-check possible welfare fraud detected using technology to broaden the databases already examined by the state. They said legitimate beneficiaries who have to defend themselves against faulty findings could face delays in getting help from the state, which would mean they would turn to their local welfare offices. “A hit does not mean a person is ineligible,” state Rep. Neal Kurk, R-Weare, noted. Kurk said the House rushed the bill out without having time to determine if raw statistical findings from a test run of food stamp and welfare cases would result in savings. LexisNexis, which sells its analytical services to states, did the computerized analysis of the state’s welfare and food stamp case files for free. But it hasn’t so far given state officials enough names for them to match against the cases it flagged as poten-

tially fraudulent to determine the company’s success rate of identifying actual fraud. LexisNexis said it would provide the information only if the state paid for it. Kurk said that one of the few names the company gave to the state was of a woman who supposedly was dead but actually was alive and in a nursing home. Republican House Speaker William O’Brien championed the new system and pushed it through the House. He argued the state could save potentially millions of dollars by cross-checking information provided by welfare applicants and recipients against a variety of public databases. But the Department of Health and Human Services said that it is already doing much of what O’Brien proposes and that “hits” of possible discrepancies in databases still have to be checked by staff to see if they are fraudulent claims. “These databases or ‘hits’ are only a starting point,” said Jennifer Jones, legal counsel for the state division of family assistance. She said LexisNexis gave the state 10 names to check and none of the information about them found by the company affected their eligibility. She said it see WELFARE page 11

Waterville Valley becomes ‘official mountain resort’ of the RedSox WATERVILLE VALLEY, N.H. (AP) — Wally the Green Monster on a snowboard? It could happen now that a ski area in New Hampshire has become “Official Mountain Resort” of the Boston Red Sox. The three-year corporate sponsorship deal with Waterville Valley Resort was announced Thursday. It will include Fenway Park promotions such as Waterville Valley lift ticket-giveaways, advertising on the center field scoreboard and other efforts aimed at luring Red Sox fans to the White Mountains. Officials say the partnership highlights the historic nature of both outfits — Fenway Park just celebrated its 100th birthday, and Waterville Valley has been attracting tourists from Boston for even longer than that.

Shaheen uses N.H. Ball Bearing visit to push need to continue Export-Import Bank By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen renewed her call for reauthorization of the ExportImport Bank, which helps businesses sell their products overseas, following a tour of New Hampshire Ball Bearing’s Astro Division plant here Thursday. She said that she came away impressed with the company’s advanced manufacturing capabilities, which includes producing key components for the defense and aerospace industries as well as a worldwide market where its ball bearing products are in demand. Shaheen said that unless Congress acts to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank, it will hit its lending cap and will be forced to cut off its support for small businesses. ‘’Growing exports is crucial to growing our economy, and the Export-Import Bank helps companies get the financing and insurance they need to complete an export deal. The bank will shut down by May 31 if Congress does not act,’’ said Shaheen. “We can’t afford to let that happen. Last year alone, the bank helped finance more than six billion dollars in export sales from small companies in the United States and has set a goal of increasing this volume by an additional $3-billion in the coming years,’’’ said Shaheen. Rich Bardellini, vice president of manufacturing for NHBB, said that renewal of the bank ‘’is critical to us’’, and even more so for many of NHBB’s customers, including Boeing Aircraft. ‘’We produce parts for the 787 Dreamliner (a midsize wide body passenger aircraft which went into service last October) and those exports mean a lot more business for us and a lot more work for our team,’’ said Bardellini. The Astro Division, with about 500 employees, is Laconia’s second largest employer. Shaheen said an attempt was made in the U.S. Senate to amend the House-passed JOBS Act in

March to reauthorize and raise the lending cap on the Export-Import Bank but it was defeated along partisan lines. She said that since that time there has been some rethinking of the importance of the bank and there is some bipartisan support for reauthorization. ‘’Last time there was a lot of extremist opposition. We’re hoping that saner heads will prevail this time,’’ said Shaheen. The bank itself has come under fire in recent years for the large share of its loans going to the foreign purchasers of American-built aircraft. Delta, in particular, has argued that such loans give foreign airlines a sizable competitive advantage. Shaheen said that 95-percent of the potential markets for American products are overseas but

only 1-percent of American firms are doing business outside of the United States. She said that the current congressional mandate for the Export-Import Bank is to focus on small business support through its new “Global Access for Small Business” initiative designed to dramatically increase the number of small companies taking advantage of its programs. She says that as more small companies become aware of the bank’s programs, more businesses will be able to access new markets and create new jobs and noted that exports by New Hampshire firms grew by $1-billion last year. Shaheen said that advanced manufacturing firms like NHBB are creating high-paying jobs and helping maintain the nation’s technological edge, but see next page

25-year-old Mark Ryba challenging TLC Jewelry is your Local incumbent Karen Ober for seat on Gold Buyer Cathy Mathews, owner of TLC the Sanbornton Selectboard JEWELRY, 279 Main St. Tilton has

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, May 4, 2012 — Page 5


SANBORNTON – The only contested race on Sanbornton’s ballot next Tuesday is not drawn in sharp lines. Rather it is a choice between an incumbent selectman with a year on the job who pledges to listen to a range of opinions, and a challenger who sees his youth a key to enticing to more people to get involved in town affairs. Next Tuesday voters will choose between Selectman Karen Ober and Mark Ryba for a three-year term on the town’s three-member Board of Selectmen. The other local positions on the ballot – Budget Committee, Cemetery Trustee, Library Trustee, Moderator, Supervisor of Checklist, Trustee of Trust Funds — are uncontested. Ober started serving as a selectman last May when she was elected to fill the one year remaining in the term of husband, Steve, who had resigned from the board in mid-term some time before because of work responsibilities. “I want to use the knowledge I’ve gained from this past year,” she said of her decision to run for re-election. Ryba says his reason for running is to represent what he called “the honest voice of the community,” adding: “It’s important to get more young people involved,” said Ryba, who is 25. As a rural community covering 48-square-miles, the maintenance of town roads is major priority. Ryba says that the approach that town officials have been taking a “Band-Aid” approach to maintenance in the interest of short-term cost savings. But he feels that taxpayers would HAZING from page 2 ings about hazing. The Champion family has already told FAMU it plans to sue the university. FAMU itself set up a task force to look at hazing, although the panel has not met since a flare-up over whether it should follow the state’s open meetings laws. Several members have since resigned. Whatever happens, it’s too soon for the band to start playing again, said Florida Gov. Rick Scott. He said he doesn’t believe the school is yet in a position to make sure the same thing doesn’t happen again. “The band’s got a great history, but we can’t afford to lose another individual like Robert Champion,” Scott said. “So I think they ought to continue the from preceding page their success depends on a highly skilled workforce.

be better served by “doing it right the first time (at more cost) which would be cheaper in the long run.” Ober says that having an effective road maintenance program has been hampered by the turnover in the Public Works Director’s position — four times in recent years. “If they stay they can work on a comprehensive road maintenance plan,” she said She credited selectmen who in recent years built public support for selling bonds to finance the so-called “Y” project, a multi-year road improvement program which included Lower Bay, Upper Bay, Hunkins Pond, and Steele Hill roads. “Now we need to have the maintenance to keep those roads in good condition,” she said. Moreover, Ober said the town needs a plan for maintaining its many dirt roads, to minimize the springtime repairs during “mud season.” Ryba, who moved to Sanbornton two years ago, says that if he was elected he would work to get more people involved in town affairs which he believes would result is more accountability on the part of town government toward taxpayers. Ober sees the challenge as “continuing to work for a responsible budget which the taxpayers can afford and still provide good services.” “One of my goals has been bringing people together so that we can look at both sides of the issue,” Ober said. The election will take place in Town Hall on Tower Hill Road. The polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Town Meeting will be held at the school on Wednesday night.

process they’ve been going through with their task force, but I don’t think it’s ready yet.” FAMU President James Ammons — who did not respond to multiple phone calls requesting comment the past two days — has still not said publicly what he plans to do about the band. Several members of the board that oversees FAMU have also declined comment this week, deferring questions to the chairman of the board. Chairman Solomon Badger, citing the other investigations, said he was hesitant to discuss the future while the other investigation remains pending. Marjorie Turnbull, who is also on the board of trustees, said FAMU should not even consider reinstating the band until university officials are certain hazing has been stamped out. “We’ve got to know this isn’t going to happen again,” Turnbull said. Hundreds of pages of records reviewed earlier this year by The Associated Press showed years of repeated warnings about brutal hazing passed without any serious response from the school’s leadership until Champion’s death. Police files show that since 2007, nearly two dozen incidents involving the band, fraternities and other student groups had been investigated.

For Wal-mart, ‘whatever’s necessary’ meant bribery Wal-mart has long boasted of its “Always Low Prices,” but now it has confirmed that it also has “Always low morals.” The bottom line has always been THE line for Wal-mart executives, and sinking to the ethical bottom to enhance that line has not only been tolerated, but legitimized as a proven path to executive promotion and riches. Squeezing suppliers, crushing competitors, exploiting employees, using enslaved workers in foreign factories and resorting to other brutish tactics to pound out another dollar in profit are central components of Wal-mart’s management ethos and business plan. Now, we can add bribery to the list of accepted practices — so accepted that even getting caught at it doesn’t mean you get fired. Walmart de Mexico is now the largest retailer and employer in that country, an exalted status that it gained the old-fashioned way: by doling out millions of dollars in corporate bribes. With sluggish sales and a tarnished brand in the U.S., the retailing giant has been pushing hard to expand internationally, and in amazingly short time, its Mexican branch became huge, with one out of five Walmart stores presently located there. All it took, we now learn from an excellent investigative report by The New York Times, was the systematic spreading of muchos, muchos pesos to government officials across the country to gain needed permits quickly, dodge environmental restrictions and generally have the company’s path cleared for market domination. Not only is this wrong, it is seriously criminal — a blatant violation of our Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. And, lest you think the corruption was the work of some lower-level manager gone rogue, the knowledge of this wholesale bribery scheme goes all the way to the top, including the current and one former CEO. David Tovar, a Wal-mart PR agent, was rushed out as the scandal was gaining media coverage to assert, disingenuously, “We are committed to getting to the bottom of this matter.” Too late, sir. Wal-mart already reached bottom. Apparently, though, a skunk doesn’t smell its own stink — or at least it’s not offended by it. Thus Wal-mart honchos are addressing the nauseating stench of

this still-evolving bribery scandal as though it’s coming from somewhere else. “We are deeply concerned by these allegations,” declared PR man Tovar, “and are working aggressively to determine what happened.” Well, gosh, you could just walk aggressively over to the executive suite and ask CEO Mike Duke, board member Lee Scott and vice chairman Eduardo Castro-Wright. All three have first-hand knowledge of what happened, for they were butt-deep in it. You see, while Wal-mart’s massive bribery payments took place in Mexico, the corruption emanated from the very top of corporate headquarters in Bentonville, Ark. It stems directly from Wal-mart’s ruling ethic of grabbing market share and profits at all costs, pressuring managers to achieve “very aggressive growth goals” by doing “whatever was necessary.” A decade ago, when Castro-Wright became head of Wal-Mart operations in Mexico, he decided that “necessary” included unbridled bribery. As early as 2005, this was known by the corporate chieftains in Bentonville, including then-CEO Scott. Also, Duke, who oversaw all international divisions at the time, was told in 2005 about corrupt payouts, which eventually totaled some $24-million. So, did Scott and Duke rebuke the perpetrator? No. Instead, Scott rebuked those who’d brought the illegalities to his attention, chiding them for being too aggressive. Fearing that exposure could hurt Wal-mart’s stock price, he killed the internal investigation by turning it over to — guess who? — CastroWright. Yes, the very same man pushing the bribery scheme! The bribes continued, and in 2008, CastroWright was promoted to vice chairman of the corporation. Scott has since retired with a golden pension and a multimillion-dollar fortune, and Duke was elevated to CEO, now drawing $18-million in pay. It’s all part of Wal-mart’s business model — and it’s stinkier than a whole den of skunks could possibly be. (Jim Hightower has been called American’s most popular populist.

Meredith Center lucky to have such great group of volunteers To the editor, Every time I have driven past Child’s Park in recent weeks when the weather is good, I have found numerous families taking advantage of the wonderful new playground recently installed by a wealth of local volunteers. It is great to see so many children taking advantage of this new facility.

We in Meredith Center are lucky to have such a dedicated group of volunteers that provided labor and materials to transform this park into one that draws children and families out to play. Thanks again to all who participated! Kate Miller Meredith

LETTER Long-terms interests of city we love lie in buying that property To the editor, I read the recent letters to the editor from Mr. Gordon King and Councilor Brenda Baer in opposition to the city’s offer to purchase the Laconia State School property and felt the need to publicly express my support of the City Council’s decision to invest in the city’s future by offering to purchase this property. When I served as chair of the Belknap County Economic Development Council in 2010, I told the Belknap County Commissioners that I believed that the development of the Laconia State School property was the most important opportunity for greater Laconia over the next 20 years. I still hold this belief. The Laconia State School property is unique and valuable to the region due to its topography, its proximity to Lake Opechee and Lake Winnisquam, downtown Laconia, the O’Shea Industrial park, and the moderate to high income residential housing, such as those on Shore Drive, Old North Main Street and in South Down Shores, that form a significant percentage of the city’s property tax base. The manner in which this property is developed will have a significant impact on its abutters, and on the City of Laconia as a whole, for years to come and the purchase of this property will ensure that we maintain local control over this development. Mr. King correctly notes that there are no plans for how this property would be used. However, a number of proposals were brought forth during the prior public hearings on this subject and purchasing the property will allow the city to fully consider how the property fits into its future and determine what is in our best interests. If

the city decides wisely, the Laconia State School property could become an engine for our economy that attracts young professionals to Laconia, increases surrounding property values and contributes to the revitalization of downtown. Were the city to pass on the opportunity, the state would make the decision and it might not be in our long term best interests. For example, the state could sell the property to a retailer, like Walmart or a supermarket chain, and the property could be transformed into yet another retail outlet that creates low wage jobs without adequate benefits, reduces residential property values in the surrounding areas, and further siphons business out of downtown. The state could also choose to sell the property to a residential developer who could build a new gated community on the hill that is owned by weekend residents who add little to our local economy. Further, when these owners move here permanently in their golden years, they will contribute to the ever increasing age gap in our region and the county’s soon to be out of control Medicare costs associated with this age gap. Like Councilor Baer, I do not like to pay taxes and would prefer to keep taxes as low as possible. However, I plan to live and work here in Laconia for many years to come and I care deeply about the long term future of this city. In the long term, the money spent now on the purchase of the State School property will be returned many times over and, in my opinion, the council made the right decision in deciding to make this long term investment in the city’s future.

Number of good reason why Romeny can be labeled anti-women To the editor, Not only is the Republican Party engaged in a “war on women” but their nominee for president, Mitt Romney, is also anti women. Romney has vowed to eliminate Planned Parenthood; he supported the Blunt-Rubio bill that would put women’s health issues, including contraception, in the hands of their bosses; he has pledged to repeal the

Affordable Health Care Law (Obamacare) designed to help women; and, he is iffy about supporting the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. President Obama, on day two, signed the Lilly Ledbetter Bill; he has faced the Catholic Church to protect all women’s rights and was also threatened to veto the Blunt-Rubio bill; and, he introduced and supported see next page

We already have too much tax exempt property in City of Laconia To the editor, I read with great interest a letter from Gordon King. Not to ruin his reputation, but I agree with Gordon! And what is scary is that the state of N.H. may sell we Laconia residents the LSS/Prison property land at “bargain basement price. The state wants to unload that property. We know it, and they know it. There was a time, 1993 to be precise, when I had a plan to remove the prison, move the N.H. Tech from Prescott Hill to the prison site, expand, and include dorms. Few were interested in my legislation. I also suggested moving the Liquor Commission offices to Prescott Hill, saving $900,000 a year from not paying rent in Concord. And now with the place a dump, our city government wants to pay $2,16-million, before buildings are torn down, debris removed, and contamination solved, what will the full price for this adventure in government costs? Would you agree that you and I know better in how our money should be spent? Just yesterday my wife had to listen to my rant about all that government tells me to give them from my labor. We have too much

tax exempt property in Laconia and throughout N.H. We are told by City Council what projects to donate our property tax dollars to. Is that okay with you? Is there a project you prefer to have done, and nobody listens to you? Let’s talk about priorities. Three number ones with me: Fire, Police, and ambulance services. What is next? Our streets, our roads, all plowed, sanded, and salted following a snow or ice storm. Staying with priorities, let us now look at education. What has been your thinking to this point? Oh,yes, throw more money at the government schools. Fine, but here is how I want my property tax dollars and federal dollars to be spent re: education. After our safety services are funded, divide the per pupil costs among all parents with students of school age. Now, allow the parents through legislation to choose where their children will be educated. A check is written from the city to the school chosen by the parents. Time to force the government schools to compete for those dollars. Those of us in the private sector compete every day. Niel Young Laconia

LETTER National Teacher Recognition Week has special meaning for LRSF To the editor, April, May and June are very busy months at the office of the Lakes Region Scholarship Foundation. We are preparing for this year’s scholarship awards: reviewing applications, contacting sponsors and getting all of the paperwork done for our annual Donor Day. While checking the calendar to set all of the deadlines necessary for this time of year, our executive director, Joan Cormier, noticed that May 7th through May 11th is National Teacher Appreciation Week. Additionally, Joan and the staff have been going over the data base of the wonderful people, service organizations and families who have set up funds through our office to help students pursuing education beyond high school. They discovered some remarkable and relevant facts. Since 1956 through 2011 over $210,000 has been awarded in honor or in memory of 57 specific educators. This total does not include the thousands of scholarship dollars contributed by teachers themselves through their professional organizations in support of our college-bound students. Another gratifying fact is that half of the 57 awards are permanent endowments, with a total market value of $640,000 as of year-end 2011, and will continue to benefit our local students for generations to come. Three of these endowment funds were established through generous bequests by the educators themselves from their estate. What a wonderful discovery! Isn’t it remarkable that these educators, who spent their lives giving to students during their pre-college years, have continued to help students with their education, in a different way. What is even more significant is that 25-percent of these awards were made in honor of

special teachers during their lifetime! What a wonderful circle of life, teachers helping students and students honoring teachers and then these donations in turn help other students. As a retired teacher, National Teacher Recognition Week has always had a special place in my heart. Seeing the impact that my fellow teachers and their families have made to help the young people of the area continue to grow, and learn, and become skilled professionals, and educated adults makes me so proud of my profession. Being a part of an organization like Lakes Region Scholarship Foundation, which works as a clearinghouse to assist all of our donors and benefactors, has been a wonderful opportunity for me to serve the young people of our area. I feel that my service as a trustee of the Lakes Region Scholarship Foundation since 2008, and now as its president, gives me an opportunity to help my fellow teachers continue their legacy. Anyone who wishes a copy of our 2012 tribute to teachers and the list of all the teachers recognized with awards through the Lakes Region Scholarship Foundation since 1956, please contact us at 527-3533 or Perhaps you knew one of these educators, or perhaps you, or someone you know, would like to honor another wonderful teacher from our area? Our gratitude and best wishes to all our Lakes Region teachers the whole year long – not just for teacher appreciation week! Henry Brooks Adams, a journalist from the late 19th-early 20th century once said: “A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influences stops.” How true! Paulette Loughlin, President Lakes Region Scholarship Foundation

Sheridan Rd. improvement deal brings smile to residents’ faces BY MICHAEL KITCH

MOULTONBOROUGH — After persuading town officials to reconsider plans to widen a stretch of Sheridan Road to town standards a year ago, residents of the lightly traveled byway welcomed the revised plan for improvements presented at a public meeting this week. Bonnie Muscavtiz, who feared a widened road would have come to within 18 inches of her 200-year-old cape graced with antique roses and aged lilacs, described the new plan as “definitely better, a lot better.” She said that only five or six trees would have to be felled and then only with the approval of property owners. A stone wall must be moved to allow for construction, but will be reset once the work is complete. “They’ve made concessions,” she said. “All in all the meeting went quite well.” Originally a cow path, Sheridan Road runs northward from Route 25 for a little more than two miles then forks into Range Road leading northwest to Squam Lake and School House

Road heading northeast to Sandwich. Both the southern and northern reaches of the road have been reconstructed, leaving some 1,650 feet, or about a third of mile, in the middle in disrepair. Narrow and picturesque, the road is lined with mature oaks, maples and evergreens and stone walls. Last year the town planned to widen the stretch of road to 22-feet with onefoot shoulders and drainage swales to match the remainder of the road, but returned to the drawing board when residents balked at stripping the verge of nearly 30 trees and removing several venerable stone walls. The new design calls for reconstruction of the contested section of the road to its existing width of 18-feet with a closed drainage system incorporating asphalt curbing and catch basins as well as reclamation of 4,125-feet of pavement from the intersection with Jones Road to the Sandwich town line. The budget for the project is $425,000. Work is expected to begin late in the summer or early in the fall, starting at the Sandwich town line and proceeding southward.

STATE SCHOOL from page one $10-million offer, the City Council authorized City Manager Scott Myers and City Council Matt Lahey (Ward 2) to make a counter offer to purchase the property, along with the Robbie Mills Sports Complex for the appraised value of $2.16-million. The counter offer by the city prompted the Senate leadership to introduce legislation repealing the state’s original offer of not less than $10-million and accommodating the city’s counter offer. It would offer the site for sale at its fair market value with a rider that the transaction would close not later than May 1, 2013. The legislation defines the property as “the former Laconia state school property and the former Laconia state school and training center center property,” except for 17-acres housing the 911 call center and the building vacated by Lakes Region Community Services that would remain the property of the state. The sale would be subject to the statute (RSA 4:40) governing the disposal of state property-owned real estate, except that the review and approval of the transaction by the Council on Resources and Development, made up of representatives of state agencies, would not be required. Otherwise, the statute stipulates that the property must first be offered to the municipality where it is located and cannot be sold for less than “a current market value.” The sale would require the approval of the Long Range Capital Planning and Utilization Committee, consisting of members of the legislative and executive branches of government that oversees property owned and leased by the state, and the governor and executive council. The appraised property consists of three tax parcels. The largest, some

200-acres, is bounded by North Main Street to the east, Meredith Center Road and Eastman Road to the north and Ahern State Park to the west and south and divided roughly in half by Right Way Path. This parcel includes some 60-acres adjacent to the Robbie Mills Sports Complex bounded by Eastman Road and Green Street known as Risley Field, which the city leases on a short-term basis to provide parking for the sports complex. There are some 26 buildings on the large parcel, all in varying degrees of disrepair, all but a handful on its western half. Likewise, numerous sources of likely contamination were identified on the parcel by Credere Associates, LLC in 2010, most within some 62-acres south of Right Way Path where about two-thirds of the buildings are congregated. Two underground storage tanks and petroleum stained soil was found just north of Right Way Path. The parcel was appraised at $1,760,000, There are also two smaller parcels. An undeveloped 10.4-acre lot at the junction of Old North Main Street and North Main Street was appraised at $300,000. An unimproved wooded lot of 7.5-acres at the corner of Lane Road and Meredith Center Road was appraised at $100,000. The state leased both smaller parcels to the city in 2000 for 99 years at $1 a year. In making its counter offer, the City Council agreed to purchase the two smaller parcels for their appraised value, despite holding leases on both. But, the council added the Robbie Mills Sports Complex, 10.2-acres owned by the state and leased to the city for 99 years, in its counter-offer. The sports complex, which was part of the Laconia State School campus, was not included in either appraisal


THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, May 4, 2012 — Page 9

MISS NH from page one Lyman is currently wrapping up her junior year at New England College in Henniker, where she is studying education. Nine years ago, she was a girl who loved to dance and who was about to have her world turned upside-down by the diagnosis of soft tissue sarcoma, a kind of cancer found typically in middle-aged men and a disease that often is treated as terminal. At the time, she was the only female adolescent in the country with such a diagnosis. “It was a little scary,” Lyman admitted. In adversity, though, she found inspiration. Her successful treatment included surgery and a stay at a Children’s Hospital in Boston. While there, on a day when the then 14-year-old was sapped of strength and optimism, she was fortunate enough to be paid a visit by Red Sox catcher and threetime All-Star Jason Varitek, who made a habit of touring the hospital and bring cheer to young patients. It worked for Lyman. “He just completely turned everything around for me,” she said. Not only did her spirits improve, so did her health. Since then, Lyman has been an advocate for positive thinking, especially for those facing dire circumstances. Referring to Varitek, she said, “I want to do what he did for me.” For at least the next year, she’ll be in

a great position to do just that. For her platform statement, the part of a pageant participant’s application where she describes how she’ll use the title, Lyman said she would further the mission of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which grants the wishes of children suffering from life-threatening illnesses. Soon, she’ll be certified as an official wish-granter for the organization, and the honor of granting a wish is at the top of her list of things she’s looking forward to doing as Miss New Hampshire. When Lyman was 15, and headover-heels for dancing, Make-A-Wish made real her dream of having her own dance studio, constructing it in the attic of her Gilford home. She remembers the day clearly, especially how so many of her friends, family and fellow dancers conspired and labored to give her such a surprise. “I’ve been volunteering for them since I got my wish,” she said about Make-A-Wish. “I’m okay, I’m good. Let’s help other people... Knowing you can really give people that joy, you’re enriching what they have.” Lyman’s duties will surely see her helping many other organizations and causes over the next 12 months. “I’ll be volunteering five days a week for the next year,” and will take a break from college until she passes the crown on to the next Miss New Hampshire.

SEAU from page 2 death is so puzzling. Seau’s ex-wife, Gina, told The Associated Press that while Seau sustained concussions during his playing career, she had no idea if they somehow contributed to his death. McPherson also said he didn’t know if concussions would have contributed to the death of Seau, who was known for his ferocious tackles followed by celebratory fist pumps. “There is no football player — maybe a punter — that has not had multiple concussions, I would guess,” McPherson said. Longtime Chargers chaplain Shawn Mitchell said he wasn’t aware of any major issues that would lead Seau to take his life, including any difficulties making the transition from the playing field to retirement. Seau played his first 13 seasons with the Chargers before

moving on to the Miami Dolphins and then the New England Patriots. He helped lead San Diego to its only Super Bowl, after the 1994 season; was voted to a Chargers-record 12 straight Pro Bowls; and was named All-Pro six times. Mitchell said many players struggle once they leave the game. “Junior was quite the opposite,” said Mitchell, the pastor at New Venture Christian Fellowship in Oceanside. “Junior was one of the few guys with face recognition and first-name recognition across the nation. I’m almost amazed when people say he was torn up and missing the limelight. Golly, for a guy not in the league, the guy was doing contracts and he had a series on TV. He was such an icon and he had three cities, San Diego, New England and Miami, which loved the guy. I haven’t seen in Junior what I see in hundreds of players, and that is a sense of great loss.”

VIDEO from page one pal’s tongue-lashing and then posted it on-line as a YouTube video for all the world to see. Fifty-seven students were suspended for taking part in the protest, Coppinger said, but he said the YouTube aspect of the incident has not prompted Moultonborough school officials to reconsider their policy regarding allowing cells phones in the school, nor was it likely to. “It’s a reality of what happens,” Coppinger said of young people using their cell phones to express themselves, be it through conversation, texting, or sharing of photos or videos. He acknowledged that the newer, more sophisticated technology features packed into today’s mobile phones present additional challenges, such as a students, teachers or other school employees, being recorded surreptitiously, but he said, “Banning them outright doesn’t seem to me to be practical.” Coppinger said that, with limited exceptions, Moultonborough students are prohibited from

having their cell phones visible or using them in the school while classes are in session. However, students can use their phone when they are in the cafeteria during the lunch period. So the student who recorded Coppinger’s speech had not violated the cell phone policy, he said. He said that the first time a student violates the policy their phone is confiscated, and turned in to the school office where the student can pick it up at the end of the day. Students who repeat the violation have their phone taken and it will only be returned to a parent, Coppinger explained. Coppinger said the number of incidents of using cell phones during school time has dropped significantly since the policy was adopted. The reason the April 20 Earth Day program was canceled was because only about half of the students had signed up for the events despite repeated encouragement to do so. Coppinger said that the Earth Day program, with its outdoor activities, presents “logistical challenges,” which makes it impractical to run

the event with only half the student body participating. “You can’t have the other half just doing nothing,” he said. The only sensible alternative was to have the normal school schedule, he added. “Senior class, the biggest class that was most upset had the worst sign-ups ever. How dare you protest when you didn’t sign up. How dare you sign the petition when you didn’t sign up,” a visibly angry Coppinger is seen saying to the students in the YouTube video. Coppinger ventured that about 90-percent of Moultonborough Academy students have cell phones at school. He said the phones make it easier for students and parents to contact each other, whether because of something unexpected or just to let a parent know when to pick up their kid after sports practice. He said Moultonborough Academy’s policy is typical. The student handbooks for Laconia and Gilford high schools clearly state that students there, too, must have their phones turned off and out of sight during class. In Gilford, students are not allowed to use them anywhere in the building, including the cafeteria. Laconia High’s policy specifically gives teachers and school administrators the right to confiscate a cell phone if they feel the student is using it inappropriately. EDWARDS from page 2 ited individual political contributions to $2,300 per election cycle. “She thought it was a little low,” Huffman, 48, replied to laughter. “Our furniture business did not really involve furniture. It was money for Sen. Edwards.” Edwards has pleaded not guilty to six criminal counts related to campaign finance violations involving about $1 million provided by Mellon and another donor. Some of the money was used to hide the candidate’s pregnant mistress as he sought the White House in 2008. He faces up to 30 years in prison and $1.5 million in fines if convicted. Huffman took the stand after several of Edwards’ former aides testified about their knowledge or suspicions of the married candidate’s affair with Rielle Hunter, a videographer seen going to and from his hotel rooms on campaign stops. After nearly two weeks of somber testimony from witnesses in dark suits, the interior designer breezed into the windowless, oak-paneled courtroom in a yellow checked blazer with matching yellow tie and pocket square.

WELFARE from page 2 took 20 hours to verify the information. State Sen. Bob Odell, a Republican committee member from Lempster, noted the bill would require the state to verify eligibility by cross-checking the raw data before providing assistance. “My concern is that if someone is looking for food stamps or other benefits and there’s a delay, won’t they go to the town welfare office?” Odell asked House Finance Chairman Ken-

neth Weyler. Weyler said some may seek local help, but he urged the committee to pass the bill anyway. Senate President Peter Bragdon, another committee member, asked Weyler if the 56 people receiving benefits and listed as dead by LexisNexis are indeed dead. “These are numbers that came up on this data search that can’t be confirmed,” replied Weyler, R-Kingston.

from preceding page in a smile, he spoke in a drawl suited for the sitting parlor of an antebellum mansion. Huffman said he met Mellon in 2004, after he visited the small town near her estate, wrote her a note and received an invitation to visit. Huffman recounted driving up a long winding driveway, past a guard, to Mellon’s home in Virginia horse country. “Well, it’s nice, obviously, but nothing ostentatious,” he said. “Nothing gold and velvet about it, just a nice, rich farmhouse.” The two hit it off and the heiress asked Huffman to become “evening friends,” a familiar voice to call before bed. Their conversations ranged “from the state of the world to how much her plant had grown in the pot.” Huffman said Mellon had become enamored of the handsome and youthful senator from North Carolina. He made it his mission to arrange an introduction. Huffman’s sister had gone to law school with Edwards’ key aide Andrew Young, and he called to invite Edwards to Mellon’s estate. By then it was early 2006, and Edwards had been criticized for $400 haircuts. Incensed, Mellon sent Young a handwritten note requesting that any future expenses for the senator’s personal needs be sent to her lawyer in New York, so that they could be paid without government oversight. Young previously testified the note arrived as Edwards was struggling to find money to provide for his mistress, Rielle Hunter, without his vigi-

lant wife finding out. Huffman was on hand in December of 2005 when Edwards arrived at Mellon’s home for what the campaign called a “prospecting” visit. At dusk, Edwards lifted off from the airstrip on Mellon’s estate in her private jet, headed to Chapel Hill. “There goes the next president of the United States,” Huffman recounted her saying. A couple weeks later, Huffman said Mellon told him she’d sent a $10,000 check. She instructed him to cash the check and give the money to Young, who had asked her for up to $600,000 for a “non-campaign purpose.” Several more checks followed, each increasing in size. He said neither he nor Mellon knew how the money was being spent. The heiress closely followed the campaign against then-senators Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, whom she referred to in a letter shown to the jury as the “Old Rag.” “She was having fun with this,” he said In addition to the $725,000 in secret money, Mellon provided $6.6 million to Edwards’ political action committee and his poverty center. The checks stopped after her lawyer learned about them and confronted the interior designer, who confessed that the money had gone to Young. The lawyer is expected to testify Friday. Earlier Thursday, former Edwards staff member John Davis recounted running into Hunter in the elevator of a Detroit hotel where the candidate was staying, even though her contract making videos for the campaign had expired weeks earlier.

LFD presents defibrillator to Senior Center By Michael Kitch

LACONIA — The city took another step towards enhancing its enviable record of cardiac care yesterday with the purchase of a pair of Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDS), one to serve the Laconia Senior Center and another to act as a mobile unit, which will be used by lifeguards at municipal beaches. Shawn Riley, deputy chief of emergency medical services at the Fire Department, said that the addition of the two AEDs, purchased with a $2,000 grant from the state with the approval of the City Council, brings the number of registered AEDs in the city to 45. He explained that registering AEDs with the Bureau of Emergency Medical Services and the 911 call center ensures that anyone reporting a cardiac emergency will be told where to find the nearest AED as well as how to operate it. “They will walk you through it step-by-step,” said Riley. Riley said that AEDs have been placed not only

in all the schools and public buildings but also in many private firms and nonprofit corporations. He urged any business or organization with an AED that has not been registered to contact him at the Fire Department (524-6881) for assistance with the registration process. One of the new AEDs will be housed at the senior center at 17 Church Street where it will also be accessible to the teachers and students of the alternative education program. The other AED will be carried on the GATOR, the small utility vehicle operated by the Fire Department, during Motorcycle Week before being assigned to lifeguards for duty at the beaches. Riley said that the AEDs have contributed to the city’s survival rate among those stricken by sudden cardiac arrest of 24-percent, which is four times the average for the country as a whole. “We are working to maintain and improve our high level of cardiac care,” he said.

CHINA from page 2 spokesman Mark Toner confirmed U.S. officials weren’t able to see Chen in person Thursday but spoke twice with him by telephone, and once with his wife, Yuan Weijing, outside the hospital. “It’s our desire to meet with him tomorrow or in the coming days,” Toner said. “But I can’t speak to whether we’ll have access to him. I just don’t know.” Earlier, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said U.S. officials would continue to work with Chen and his wife to try to find a satisfactory

new solution. “We need to consult with them further to get a better sense of what they want to do and consider their options,” Nuland said. Meanwhile, the Obama administration’s handling of the case drew sharp criticism from Mitt Romney and Republican lawmakers. Campaigning in Virginia, the Republican presidential candidate said reports that American officials allowed Chen to leave the embassy represented a “dark day for freedom” and a “day of shame for the Obama administration.” see next page

Death of Boston man with connections on a NYC train platform triggered $180,000 worth of mystery NEW YORK (AP) — The mystery began with a heart attack, a man with a past, and a bag of money that federal authorities now want to keep. In August, a retired Teamster from Boston stepped off an Amtrak train in New York City and collapsed on the platform at Pennsylvania Station. As medics tried to revive him, police searched his backpack for identification. Inside, they found the stuff that “Law & Order” episodes are made of: $179,980 in cash, bundled with rubber bands and tucked inside two plastic bags. That raised some eyebrows. So did the dead man’s background. William P. Coyman, 75, a lifelong resident of Boston’s Charlestown section, had a criminal history dating to 1955. His record included prison time in New Hampshire after he was caught with a pile of cocaine and $20,000 that had just been stolen from a department store. from preceding page Rep. Frank Wolf, a fierce Beijing critic, told the congressional hearing held to discuss Chen’s case that the Obama administration’s handling of it was “naive,” adding that “a purported diplomatic triumph evolved into a diplomatic fiasco.” In a phone call from his hospital room in Beijing, Chen told lawmakers: “I want to meet with Secretary Clinton. ... I want to thank her face to face.” He also expressed fears for the lives of his other family members, including his mother and brothers, and voiced concern that people in his home village were suffering retribution for helping him. “I want to thank all of you for all your care and all your love,” he concluded, speaking in Chinese that was translated into English by a rights activist at the hearing. A self-taught lawyer, the 40-year-old Chen became an international human rights figure and inspiration to many ordinary Chinese after running afoul of local government officials for exposing forced abortions and

Coyman’s old union, International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 25, was notorious for its organized crime ties in the 1990s. Years ago, Coyman’s name was mentioned in news articles about allegations that union officials were shaking down Hollywood film crews and forcing producers to give cushy film set jobs to gangland hoodlums. He’d worked as a driver on some of the films in question. Police brought in a drug-sniffing dog, which indicated traces of narcotics in both Coyman’s backpack and briefcase, according to a court filing. Investigators contacted one of Coyman’s relatives, who said he had been working as a courier for a company called 180 Entertainment and was supposed to have been delivering cash from Boston to Philadelphia when he died. Agents looked into the company and found that its registered headquarters was a small house in see next page sterilizations carried out as part of China’s one-child policy. Until his escape last week, his nearly seven years in prison and abusive house arrest with his wife, 6-year-old daughter and mother fueled outrage and added to his stature — and in turn upped the stakes for Washington in helping him. Chen said throughout his six-day stay at the U.S. Embassy that his desire was to remain in China with his family, and U.S. diplomats said that was their goal in negotiations with Chinese officials. After several days of talks, U.S. officials said they extracted a guarantee that Chen would be relocated outside his home province to a university town where he could formally study law. U.S. officials said they would periodically monitor his situation, though they did not specify how. But hours after a gleeful Chen left the U.S. compound, he changed his mind, driven in part by his wife’s tales of abuse and retribution in the days after Chen managed to escape from his rural farmhouse.

Police charge young woman with false report of rape LACONIA — A young Meredith woman has been charged with making a false report to law enforcement after claiming that she had been raped. Laconia Police report that Twyla Wixson, 19, of Gary’s Way, reported on April 8 that she had been the victim of an aggravated felonious sexual assault, having been raped by a person she knew. However, investigating detectives found that many of her

statements did not seem truthful and Wixson later admitted to police, according to a police statement, that she had consented to the act and that it was not the crime she had initially reported. Yesterday, Wixson turned herself in to the Police Department and was released on $1,000 personal recognizance bail. She is due to appear June 28 in Laconia Circuit Court.

from preceding page collar section of Philadelphia, with personal watercraft and two luxury cars parked in the driveway. All this made the Drug Enforcement Administration very suspicious. In February, federal prosecutors in New York asked a judge for permission to keep the cash as the suspected proceeds of drug dealing. Reached by the AP in California, Coyman’s son, also named William, declined to speak about the situation, other than to say that the money didn’t belong to the family. “The people connected to that money are probably not good people,” he said. “My dad was a great man. But clearly he had a colorful history. ... As a kid growing up, my father was in the newspaper and it was embarrassing. It has been embarrassing my whole life.” Friends and relatives who posted remembrances of Coyman on websites after his death recalled the brighter side of his life, including a fondness for Irish song, loyalty to family and an affinity for the local horse track. A lawyer from Providence, R.I., has filed court papers claiming the cash on behalf of 180 Entertainment. In the filings, the attorney, Steven D. DiLibero, identified his client as a man named Joseph Burke but didn’t explain the company’s business or say where the money was headed. Court records obtained by The Associated Press

show that Burke is another longtime Charlestown resident with a colorful past. In 1988, he was sent to prison for a string of six bank robberies in Florida. At the time, he told FBI agents he had been involved in as many as 18 heists of banks and armored cars, in several states, before being captured in Minnesota. Prison didn’t rob him of his criminal impulses. While still incarcerated, in 1994, Burke was caught in an FBI sting conspiring to distribute 5 kilograms of cocaine in Charlestown with the help of some associates. He had more time tacked on to his sentence and was finally released on a combination of probation and parole in October 2010. Contacted by The AP, DiLibero said he wouldn’t talk about Burke or give any information about the mysterious $180,000. On April 20, Burke was arrested on an alleged probation violation. Since his release from prison, he had failed a drug test and also had been accused of leaving the country without permission, according to remarks made by lawyers and a judge at an initial hearing on the matter. Prosecutors involved in Burke’s cases in New York and Boston didn’t return phone calls. A spokeswoman for the DEA declined to comment. Real estate documents show that the Philadelphia house listed in some records as the headquarters of 180 Entertainment is owned by Anthony Fedele, a former business partner of the late Philadelphia music producer Stephen Epstein. Before his death, Epstein was known for being a close friend and occasional business partner of Joseph “Skinny Joey” Merlino, the onetime boss of the Philadelphia mafia. The courts have yet to rule on whether the DEA will get to keep the money. Coincidentally, A&E announced in March that it had teamed up with Boston-born actor Mark Wahlberg to make an unscripted docudrama about Coyman’s old union, Teamsters Local 25. The union says it cleaned up its act years ago after top officials were convicted in a series of federal racketeering investigations.

GILMANTON — The Gilmanton Year-Round Library welcomes New Hampshire artist Conrad Young at a reception on May 12 from 2 to 4 pm at the Library. His artwork will be on display at the Library during May and June. Conrad Young was privileged to spend his childhood growing up in small villages all over New

Hampshire. At the age of seven, he knew that he would be an artist. His part-Indian mother and uncles were artistic, and one uncle wrote fiction novels and illustrated his own stories. Art training began in high school, and after graduation he attended the Van Emburge School of Art in Plainfield, New Jersey. There he specialized in watercolor. After art school, he worked for advertising agencies as art director for about ten years, eventually starting his own advertising agency. In 2006, after a successful advertising career, Young decided to pursue his love of watercolors again. He began painting landscapes and covered bridges.

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis of you -- otherwise you wouldn’t recognize it. Knowing this, you’ll use your observations of others to unearth hidden feelings and air them out. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The world may be more or less the same as it was yesterday, and yet you see yourself differently in relation to it. It will be so natural and easy to work with all that you have that you’ll wonder why you were making it so hard. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). In a dance, neither person causes the other person to dance. There is a natural reaction and response -- (SET ITAL) you move here, I’ll move there. (END ITAL) You’ll be in a kind of dance today, swaying to the impulse of the moment. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re not as lost as you think you are. In fact, you have arrived at a destination you hoped for many years ago. Take full advantage of your surroundings. You’ll find your way when you are no longer looking for it. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Believing, thinking and deciding are futile mental exercises. There are only two categories that matter: You either do or you don’t do. The only way to make things happen is to act. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (MAY 4). You’ll live life on your own terms. Next month, new friends bring you the job you wanted most. In August, pitch in to help partners and you’re the one who will ultimately be rewarded. September features an adventure vacation - passions will be ignited in on far-off adventures. Revamp and remodel in November. Capricorn and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 13, 11, 48 and 23.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You work within a structure of intelligent individuals. It’s not mandatory to know what everyone does, but it might be nice to find out what’s going on outside of your area of expertise. Ask around. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It would be too easy to settle for being uninformed -- people around you are certainly doing it. You prefer to do your research. You’ll look before you leap so that you know what you’re getting into. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Meetings are on the agenda. If you expect to learn all you need to know at the meeting, you’ll only be disappointed. This is a chance to see and be seen. Get ready to do a bit of show and tell. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are the pilot of your own ship. Your vessel will be affected by the wind and currents today, but you’re still ultimately the one in charge, hands expertly gripping the wheel. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Love is not an intellectual exercise. You may feel that you should give your love to someone (or perhaps to yourself), and yet you can’t force the issue because it just doesn’t work that way. Relax into love. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Once you get the creeping suspicion that you’re not going to get what you need or want from a situation, it’s best to move on. The lesson will occur to you long after you have left the scene. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Subconscious desires and core needs will be the emphasis, neither of which can be addressed through logic. So resist trying to reason about unreasonable things, and lead with your feelings. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). What you see in others also exists in a part

––––––– ALMANAC –––––––


Today is Friday, May 4, the 125th day of 2012. There are 241 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 4, 1942, the Battle of the Coral Sea, the first naval clash fought entirely with carrier aircraft, began in the Pacific during World War II. (The outcome was considered a tactical victory for Imperial Japan, but ultimately a strategic one for the Allies.) On this date: In 1626, Dutch explorer Peter Minuit landed on present-day Manhattan Island. In 1776, Rhode Island declared its freedom from England, two months before the Declaration of Independence was adopted. In 1862, after a monthlong siege, Union forces prepared to unleash a massive bombardment against Confederate troops at Yorktown, Va., only to discover the Confederates had slipped away during the night. In 1886, at Haymarket Square in Chicago, a labor demonstration for an 8-hour work day turned into a deadly riot when a bomb exploded. In 1904, the United States took over construction of the Panama Canal. In 1932, mobster Al Capone, convicted of income-tax evasion, entered the federal penitentiary in Atlanta. In 1959, the first Grammy Awards ceremony was held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Domenico Modugno won Record of the Year and Song of the Year for “Nel Blu Dipinto Di Blu (Volare)”; Henry Mancini won Album of the Year for “The Music from Peter Gunn.” In 1961, the first group of “Freedom Riders” left Washington, D.C., to challenge racial segregation on interstate buses and in bus terminals. In 1970, Ohio National Guardsmen opened fire during an anti-war protest at Kent State University, killing four students and wounding nine others. In 1994, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and PLO leader Yasser Arafat signed an accord on Palestinian autonomy that granted self-rule in the Gaza Strip and Jericho. One year ago: President Barack Obama said he had decided not to release death photos of terrorist Osama bin Laden because their graphic nature could incite violence and create national security risks. Separately, officials told The Associated Press that the Navy SEALs who’d stormed bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan shot and killed him after they saw him appear to lunge for a weapon. Today’s Birthdays: The former president of Egypt, Hosni Mubarak, is 84. Opera singer Roberta Peters is 82. Jazz musician Ron Carter is 75. Rock musician Dick Dale is 75. Pop singer Peggy Santiglia (The Angels) is 68. Actor Richard Jenkins is 65. Country singer Stella Parton is 63. Actor-turned-clergyman Hilly Hicks is 62. Irish musician Darryl Hunt is 62. Singer Jackie Jackson is 61. Rhythm-and-blues singer Oleta Adams is 59. Rhythm-and-blues singer Sharon Jones is 56. Country singer Randy Travis is 53. Actress Mary McDonough is 51. Comedian Ana Gasteyer is 45. Actor Will Arnett is 42. Rock musician Mike Dirnt is 40. Contemporary Christian singer Chris Tomlin is 40. Rock musician Jose Castellanos is 35. Singer Lance Bass (‘N Sync) is 33. Actor Alexander Gould is 18. Actress Amara Miller is 12.

Dear Annie: I have known “Molly” for 10 years. One of her roommates is my current girlfriend of five years. Molly has always been a good friend to both of us, but now I’m seeing a different side of her. She is short-tempered, passive-aggressive and a complainer. Molly nit-picks everyone to near provocation. She constantly complains about the small, well-behaved dog that belongs to the third roommate. When Molly lobbied for a fence, I was given authority to purchase the fencing. I fronted the cost of the material, installed the fence and landscaped. Molly not only balked at paying her $26 share, but was shocked to hear that in order to finish the landscaping, it would cost another $15 apiece. Meanwhile, I’m donating all the labor. This is how every situation goes. We are all tired of tiptoeing around trying not to provoke her. Apparently, her boyfriend of eight months saw the change, too, and they broke up, but not before Molly was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. She allegedly is taking medication, but she disclosed to my girlfriend that she is constantly depressed and suicidal. When she’s not depressed, she is angry and confrontational. Since my girlfriend is the only one to whom she divulged this information, I think she has a responsibility to take the necessary steps to ensure that Molly doesn’t harm herself. At the very least, shouldn’t she tell Molly’s mother? -- Concerned in California Dear Concerned: Yes, assuming Molly’s mother will be a source of help and not an additional problem. Molly’s current behavior indicates she may not be taking her medication, or she may need it to be adjusted. Please contact the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance ( for information and suggestions. Dear Annie: For the past 20 years, I have sent my nieces and

nephews birthday cards with $50 checks -- until they graduated college. I have also sent high school and college graduation, shower, wedding and baby gifts. My kids are in their early teens. This practice is no longer reciprocated by one sister-in-law. The kids will say, “Auntie forgot my birthday again.” I tell them it’s nice to get a gift, but they shouldn’t expect one. But it makes me furious that this particular sister-in-law has stopped sending gifts. Money is not an issue for her. She is just rude and thoughtless. If it were my own sister, I would say something, but I don’t feel it is my place to address my husband’s sister. How do I get over feeling slighted and hurt for my kids? -- Nicer Aunt Dear Aunt: We would hope that you gave your nieces and nephews gifts because you wanted to, not because you expected a reciprocal arrangement. And your sister-in-law’s financial situation may not be as flush as you believe. We know you think she copped out as soon as her kids got everything from the relatives, but even so, you cannot dictate to someone whether to give presents to your children. But it would be nice if she sent a card, and you or your husband can tell her that much. Dear Annie: “Stressed Out from Loud TV” complained that her husband’s hearing loss is giving her headaches because he turns the TV up so loud. I also thought I was losing my hearing, so I went to the doctor, who took one look in both of my ears and told me my ear canals were impacted with wax and bits of tissue paper that I had used to try to clean out the wax. After the nurse irrigated my ears, I could hear clearly again. The doctor told me never to put anything, even Q-tips, into the ear canals. She suggested letting the force of water clean them during a shower. Hope this helps. -- I Can Hear Again
