No red flags raised toward Huot money at Senate hearing By michAel Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
CONCORD — The N.H. Senate Capital Budget Committee all but applauded funding for the renovation and expansion of the Huot Regional Technical Education Center
in Laconia at a public hearing yesterday, though some doubts linger over state support for tuition and transportation, on which enrollment depends. Earlier the House Public Works and Highways Committee unanimously agreed to
include funding for two vocational technical centers in the 2012-2013 capital budget — $7.125-million for the Huot Center and $8.875-million for its counterpart at Pinkerton Academy in Derry. Representative Frank Tilton
(R-Laconia), who shepherded the project through the House, was confident the Senate would approve the funding, not least because Derry is the home of Senator Jim Rausch, a fellow Republican who sits on see HUOT page 12

House GOP won’t push Medicare vouchers as part of debt ceiling compromise
WASHINGTON (AP) — The GOP plan to replace Medicare with vouchers will have to wait, party leaders acknowledged Thursday as lawmakers and the White House bowed to political realities in pursuing a deal to allow more government borrowing in exchange for big spending cuts. Both sides hinted at movement and Vice President Joe Biden reported progress from an initial negotiating session. Spending cuts and increasing the amount of money the government can keep borrowing to pay its bills are “practically and politically connected,” Biden said at the start of budget meetings with lawmakers at Blair House, the guest residence across Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House.

Obama: ‘We never forget, we mean what we say’ NEW YORK (AP) — Solemnly honoring victims of the Sept. 11 terror attacks, President Barack Obama hugged survivors, thanked the heroes of one of the nation’s darkest days and declared Thursday that the killing of Osama bin Laden after all these years was an American message to the world: “When we say we will never forget, we mean what we say.” On a brilliant blue-sky day, one of reflection more than celebration, Obama offered New Yorkers a moment of their own. Standing at the gritty construction site of ground zero, where the towers fell and a memorial now rises, the president laid a
wreath of red, white and blue flowers for the nearly 3,000 who died as he marked a turning point for the nation and this city of steely resilience. For Obama, the day was about the importance of being in New York in the aftermath of the successful raid to find and kill bin Laden, the al-Qaida leader. Obama addressed families who have watched and wondered for nearly a decade whether the government would track down its most infamous enemy. On this special ground, Obama never mentioned bin Laden’s name. Still, this was where the terrorist
inflicted his greatest damage on a similarly sunny day in 2001 when hijacked airliners were crashed into the World Trade Center. Nearly 200 other people died when a third airliner hit the Pentagon — Vice President Joe Biden led a ceremony there on Thursday, and Bush Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld attended — and others were killed when yet a fourth plane crashed in Pennsylvania. Enthusiastic, emotional New Yorkers waited on streets to see the president, but there were few displays like the more raucous exuberance of a few days earlier. see OBAMA page 12
WASHINGTON (AP) — Some of the first information gleaned from Osama bin Laden’s compound indicates al-Qaida considered attacking U.S. trains on the upcoming anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. But counterterrorism officials say they believe the planning never got beyond the initial phase and have no recent intelligence pointing to an active plot for such an attack. As of February 2010, the terror organization was considering plans to attack
the U.S. on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. One idea was to tamper with an unspecified U.S. rail track so that a train would fall off the track at a valley or a bridge, according to a joint FBI and Homeland Security bulletin sent to law enforcement officials around the country Thursday. The al-Qaida planners noted that if they attacked a train by tilting it, the plan would only succeed once because the tilting would be spotted the next time.
The warning, obtained by The Associated Press, was marked for “official use only.” Information on the train plot appears to be the first widely circulated intelligence pulled from the raid this week on bin Laden’s secret compound in Pakistan. After killing the terror leader and four of his associates, Navy SEALs confiscated a treasure trove of computers, DVDs and documents from the home where U.S. officials see TRAINS page 13

Flood waters threaten N.H. House votes to allow schools to use ritzy Memphis enclave ‘reasonable force’ to maintain discipline
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Mud Island, which juts into the Mississippi, pays homage to the mighty river with an elaborate scale model of it, a museum about its history, and a paddlewheel steamboat that looks like something straight out of “Huckleberry Finn.” But now Mud Island is getting too much of the Mississippi. Rising waters practically lapped at the back porches of some of the island’s expensive houses Thursday, and homeowners weighed whether to stay or go. Up and down Ol’ Man River, from Illinois to Louisiana, thousands faced the same decision as high water kept on rolling down the Mississippi and its tributaries, threatening to swamp communities over the next week or two. The flooding is already breaking highwater records that have stood since the 1930s. see MEMPHIS page 7
Elementary school in Strafford closed by smell
STRAFFORD, N.H. (AP) — About 450 students in Strafford, N.H., have been sent home early because of a chemical odor detected throughout the school. The Strafford fire chief said Thursday that the smell appeared to be coming from a chemical floor adhesive being used in some school renovations. A few students who complained of feeling ill were checked out by emergency medical technicians but not hospitalized. The fire chief told WMUR-TV that the area under construction — the fifth-grade wing — appeared to be well ventilated but that shifting wind blew the odor into the school.
CONCORD (AP) — Retired Nashua teacher Robert Sherman told lawmakers Thursday of a time when he was asked to deal with a student who’d run into the men’s room to hide from a female teacher who’d caught him smoking. “I gave the student clear orders not to move until an administrator came — and he charged (at) me,” Sherman said. Sherman and a second teacher restrained the young man, but Sherman was asked later to explain a red mark on the student’s arm from the encounter. The Senate Judiciary Committee heard testimony from Sherman and others in support of a bill that would give school officials immunity if they acted “in good faith” in using “reasonable” force to maintain discipline. The bill would change the law, which allows for “necessary” force, to “reasonable” force when a student creates a disturbance or refuses to leave, or when force is needed to maintain order. The committee is expected to vote later on the proposal. Lead sponsor, Rep. Dan McGuire, R-Epsom, said a stronger law is needed to support school officials who otherwise “might have the threat of a lawsuit hanging over their heads.” Rep. Ken Gidge, D-Nashua, also a sponsor, said classrooms are much more dangerous places for teachers than they used to be. He said teachers want the bill to become law. Gidge told the story of a substitute teacher who was hit in the head with a hole punch after asking
a student to hand over his ear phones. He spoke of students who went to administrators to unfairly accuse teachers of violence. “It is needed. The students can’t run the schools. The teachers need to run the schools,” he said. But advocates for disabled students said the change was unnecessary. They said teachers and administrators already can use force to protect themselves or others in a dangerous situation. “If someone is getting hurt, that’s a time to restrain. I agree with you on that,” said John Richards, executive director of the Governor’s Commission on Disability. But he said the bill may encourage teachers to use force in inappropriate situations. “If a kid is yelling in class, is that a reason to backhand a kid?” he asked. Michael Skibbie, a lawyer with the Disability Rights Center, said the existing law is sufficient. He said the difference between “necessary” and “reasonable” force isn’t a meaningful distinction in a situation where force is appropriate. “The ability to control the situation and protect yourself is intact under current law,” he said. “I think there’s a risk that you’re inviting a greater use of force” with the proposed change. Patricia Victorin, the mother of a child with disabilities, said her son’s limitations are not obvious. He might wring his hands, rock or try to hide in the classroom but he’s never been aggressive.

Thankfully, America’s Asian footprint vanishing With his order to effect the execution of Osama bin Laden by Navy SEALs, 40 miles from Islamabad, without asking permission of the government, Barack Obama made a bold and courageous decision. Its success, and the accolades he has received, have given him a credibility as commander in chief that he never had before. The law professor, it turns out, is a gunslinger. Should the president now decide on a major withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan in July, or side with his generals and make a token pullout, either way, the country will accept his decision. Yet, as one looks to the Maghreb and Middle East, to the Gulf and Pakistan, events of this historic year point to an inexorable retreat of American power and the American presence. Consider Pakistan. Today, that nation is red-faced that its military and intelligence services lied or did not know Osama was living in a mansion a mile from their West Point. And Pakistan is humiliated that U.S. commandos flew in by chopper at night, killed Osama in his compound, and made off with his body, computers and cell phones. Relations are close to the breaking point. Mobs are burning American flags. Angry congressmen are talking of cutting off aid to Pakistan for disloyalty and duplicity in hiding bin Laden. Pakistanis are enraged Americans would trample on their sovereignty like that. Even before Sunday’s killing of Osama, Pakistan’s prime minister had reportedly told Hamid Karzai in Kabul to let the Americans leave on schedule in 2014, and let Pakistan and China help him cut his deal with the Taliban. In the long run, this is likely to happen. U.S. and NATO forces leave, the Taliban returns, and Pakistan moves into the orbit of China, which has far more cash — $3-trillion in foreign currency reserves — and more of a long-term interest in South Asia than a busted United States on the far side of the world. The “Great Game” will go on in Afghanistan, but without Western players — only Iran, Russia, China, Pakistan and India. In the other two critical Islamic nations in the region, Turkey and Egypt, we see a similar unraveling of ties to Washington. Turkey has been going its own way since she refused George W. Bush permission to use Turkish bases to invade Iraq. Ankara has become less secular and more Islamic, and begun to highlight her identity as a Middle Eastern nation. She has repaired relations with neighbors America regards as rogue states: Iran and Syria. And she has become the champion of the Gaza Palestinians.
Since Hosni Mubarak’s fall, Egypt has pursued a similar course. Cairo has allowed Iranian warships to transit Suez and is about to reestablish ties to Tehran. She has brokered an agreement uniting Hamas and the Palestinian Authority, and is about to reopen the border crossing between Egypt and Gaza. Israeli anger and American alarm are politely ignored. Though their population, like Pakistan’s, is anti-American, neither Turkey nor Egypt is openly hostile. Yet both pursue policies that clash with U.S. policy. And this new distance from Washington is being met with the approval of Turks and Egyptians. For the one thing all of the uprisings of the Arab Spring have had in common is a desire of these peoples to be rid of American hegemony. Indeed, taking inventory after four months of Arab revolts, it is difficult not to declare America a net loser. Our ally of 30 years, Mubarak, was overthrown. The new government is moving away from us. Our ally in Tunisia was ousted. Our unpopular and ruthless ally in Yemen is still fighting for survival. The brutality shown by our friend, Bahrain’s King Khalifa, against peaceful Shiite demonstrators probably means eventual loss of basing rights for the U.S. Fifth Fleet. We are to begin pulling troops out of Afghanistan this summer and complete the withdrawal in 2014. We are down from 170,000 troops in Iraq to 50,000. All are to be gone by year’s end. Americans have had their fill of nation-building. We cannot afford any more decadelong wars where the benefits to the American people have to be endlessly explained. Why is America’s footprint shrinking in that part of the world? First, Americans have never been less popular there, and one demand of every revolution is for a new government, independent of the United States, that will defend the national sovereignty. Second, we are broke. We can no longer afford the bases. We can no longer afford the wars. We can no longer afford the aid. Third, the true vital interest of the United States in this part of the world is that these Islamic countries not become base camps of terror, especially nuclear terror, targeted against the United States. That end is surely better served by packing and departing than by staying and fighting.

LETTERS 45/30 boat speed limits are working well and are appreciated To the editor, An open letter to the Honorable Members of the N.H. House Transportation Committee: We are extremely appreciative of your 11 votes to ITL SB-27. The comments from both sides were well put to kill this bill, as the reps have listened to the N.H. people who want keep the 45/30 mph law as it is without any changes and certainly NOT to raise the limits to 55 mph on the Broads. The recently released N.H. Marine Patrol Activity Data for 2010 showed even more improved accident and incident numbers than previous years. This, along with 2009 data, give additional evidence that the 45/30 mph law is indeed working from the Marine Patrol data perspective, from the perspective of hundreds of families, business/community leaders and N.H. individuals testifying of their vastly improved lake experiences through e-mails and phone calls. We believe we have presented facts and data enough over the years that prove the 45/30 speed limits are working well and are appreciated and enjoyed by an overwhelming number of the general public
and many Lakes Region businesses and associations. These reasonable limits allow the safe and comfortable access to Lake Winnipesaukee for the broadest spectrum of users. We thank Representatives Cloutier, Dwinell, Gagnon, Hawkes, Hinch, Lindsley, Marcus, Rhodes, Scontsas, Tholl and Williams for understanding how much safety and sanity mean to most of us, individually and collectively. Your vote to ITL SB-27 and not allow any more amendments, committee studies or other attempts to change the current speed limits will be remembered by all who appreciate what you have done. Please use your influence to persuade all members of the House, during the floor hearing we believe will be held on May 18, to see the common sense and logic of your positions. Meanwhile we hope that N.H. residents contact their respective N.H. House Reps to also urge them to support the ITL of Senate Bill 27 (to kill the bill). We are forever in your debt.

Declaring ‘local control’ of state resources is opening Pandora’s Box To the editor, An open letter to the members of the N.H. House of Representatives: As you are no doubt aware by now, the House Transportation Committee voted 11-6 to declare the compromise SB-27 that would increase allowable speed on the area of Lake Winnipesaukee known as The Broads, ITL. The reason that the majority of the committee gave for their decision is that “it’s a local issue and the locals objected”. Without getting into the unethical and deceptive ways that opponents of SB-27 were able to create the illusion of local support, this is NOT a local issue. Lake Winnipesaukee is the largest lake in N.H. and the one of the largest, if not the largest, tourist draws for the state’s tourist industry. Decisions about the lake and its use affect everyone in New Hampshire. If you go along with the thinking of the Transportation Committee you
and decision making to local landowners who own property near our state’s prime resources, and because of this the legislature will be flooded with requests for bills in the future for restrictions of public use on public property of all types “because the locals want it so it’s a local issue”. Do not open Pandora’s Box! Safe Boaters of NH has provided you with facts and backed up those facts regarding the safe use of Lake Winnipesaukee for all boaters. We came up with the compromise that leaves 86-percent of Lake Winnipesaukee unchanged but opponents to the compromise SB-27 say that is not good enough, they want it all. We urge you to support SB-27 when it gets to the floor and avoid opening Pandora’s Box, something that will touch off a stampede of bills restricting the public use of public property on the whim of private landowners.

LETTERS Value of companies could be going down as stock price goes up
‘Right-to-work bill is just another part of attack on middle class
To the editor, Today we are becoming increasingly alarmed about the economy’s prospects. We are becoming increasingly disgusted with our politician’s ineffectual efforts to improve our economic prospects. Some of the discontent is born of the lack of actual recovery of the economy. The talking heads are covering news stories about the rosy statistics and smiling faces. Not everyone is participating in the joy. Unemployment statistics are edging down. But no one is quite sure if the reason for the decline in the statistics is from the method used to calculate unemployment or whether things are getting better and we are just not recognizing it. The current method of calculating unemployment simply stops counting people as unemployed after a period of time regardless of whether they are working or not. The statistics actually measure unemployment benefits paid instead of actually measuring the level of unemployment. The difference is important because if we do not properly articulate the description or the scope of the issue our probability of formulating an appropriate response is greatly diminished. You cannot understand an issue if you do not properly measure the size and clearly articulate exactly what problem needs a solution. When was the last time you heard anyone, talking head or politician, talk about what to do to add jobs? Share prices of stocks on Wall Street are close to a three year high. But no one is talking about why the stock prices are up. Is it due to the devaluation of the dollar? The Federal Reserve’s been pumping of money into the economy in massive amounts.
To the editor, The “right to work” (RTW) bill before our state legislature is a deliberately misnamed proposal. It’s a deceptive piece of work that holds out a phony promise of economic development and more jobs while really being just another part of the broad attack on the middle class. If this was a product sold in stores, it would be fined for violating truth in advertising laws. It has nothing to do with the right to work: no one in New Hampshire is ever required to join a union or to pay union dues in order to hold a job. RTW is better described as “Right to Work for Less.” Despite what its supporters claim, studies of RTW states show no gains in employment rates, investment or productivity and no significant higher growth rate. On the other hand, working in a RTW state results in a 6-8-percent reduction in pay for all workers — whether union or non union — and fewer companies offering health care or pension plans. During the recent economic downturn, the states with the highest unemployment were RTW states. And fewer jobs and lower wages mean less purchasing power in N.H., less of a ripple effect when it comes to helping support business and jobs in other stores and offices. Between 1977 and 2008, N.H.’s per capita personal income grew by
That should be reflected in the price of stocks. That does not mean the underlying value of the companies is greater. It does not mean economic activity is increasing. It may even mean the value of the companies is going down while the price per share rises. But no one asked the chairman of the Federal Reserve at his press conference what his take on the matter is. House prices are still in the dumper. They are not going to recover for years to come. Many of the companies that were in the housing market are now gone. Their workers had skills appropriate to building and selling houses. Many of those skills do not transfer directly to other professions. Those jobs are not coming back in the near term. The price of gas is soaring. That makes getting to work more expensive. It makes growing food more expensive. It makes manufacturing many products more expensive. It makes transporting goods and services more expensive. But inflation is under control according to Mr. Bernanke and government statisticians. The list of issues is long and growing. The concern is not just for the immediate, short term functioning of the economy. Our worries are about stagnating or declining standard of living, the general dark feeling in the wider economy, the slow rate of job creation, the huge debit accumulated by an overspending government, and the growing economic challenge from China. It is plain that America has long term economic weaknesses. It is plain that these economic weaknesses will take time to fix. The real worry should be that our politicians are doing so little to tackle the underlying issues. Marc Abear Meredith
We have to watch how our Sanbornton tax dollars are spent To the editor, I am running for election to the Board of Selectmen for the Town of Sanbornton, and I would like your vote on Tuesday, May 10. I moved into the area over 20 years ago and have lived in Northfield, Tilton and Sanbornton, where I currently own my home. I have lived in Sanbornton for over 10 years, and my family for over 30 years. I am no stranger to public office, nor community service. I was a police officer in the area for eight years, my mother (Ellen Lang) and father (Walter Lang) both volunteered for the town many years ago, and taught me the value of community service. I currently serve on the Sanbornton Budget Committee (my term ends this year) and the Winnisquam Regional School District School Board, where I serve as vice-chair on the SAU Board. I am a small business owner for over 10 years, and my wife also owns her own small business. I have four children, whom live with me in Sanbornton. I have served on the school district’s budget committee, WRSD Technology Committee, The Tilton Main Street board of directors and I directed the Tilton Farmers Market for several years as well. I was appointed by the
Sanbornton Board of Selectman to, and served on, the Sanbornton Capital Improvements Committee for 2010. We have to watch how our tax dollars are spent. There are people in our local community struggling to pay their taxes, keep their jobs or put food on the table. I will be very cognizant of that if elected. As a member of the Sanbornton Budget Committee I worked hard with the other committee members to bring a budget to Town Meeting that (absent the two bonds for the new highway garage and Upper Bay/Bay Road upgrades), is under last year’s operational budget figure, but doesn’t reduce town services. Feel free to call me with any questions at 566-9802 or stop by my office at 5 Prospect Street, Tilton (the old Tilton Post Office) anytime. The election is on Tuesday May 10th, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Sanbornton Old Town Hall on Meetinghouse Hill Rd, and Town Meeting is the next night, Wednesday, May 11th at 7 p.m. in the gym at Sanbornton Central School on Hunkins Pond Rd. I hope to see you there! Whether you vote for me or my opponent(s), your voice and vote matter — so please vote! Timothy P. Lang, Sr. Sanbornton
79-percent: the 5th fastest rate of growth in the country and better than 21 of the 22 RTW states. N.H.’s median income is higher, and its poverty rate lower, than all the RTW states. During these same 30 plus years, the number of jobs in New Hampshire grew by 102-percent: faster than the average RTW state rate, and our unemployment rate is lower than all but three RTW states. RTW is a race-to-the-bottom strategy which does not improve our economy. Businesses looking to locate in a state are far more concerned with things like health costs, infrastructure, the education system, and the quality of the workforce. In a survey done in 2009 by a business group, RTW ranked 14th in importance among all factors when deciding where to set up. NH’s Director of Economic Development has testified that no business has brought up the lack of a RTW law as a negative factor in considering whether to move to — or invest in — the state. RTW is wrong for New Hampshire. It has one basic purpose: to weaken working folks’ rights, and to lower everyone’s wages. The goal of the legislature should be to grow the economy, not to keep digging the hole and making things worse. Ed Allard Laconia
Top 20-percent of Americans pay 80-percent of income taxes To the editor, The three most important words to learn at donkey training camp is the party’s motto. It hangs on a huge banner over the road entering the camp. It is printed boldly above the donkeys image on the Democrat’s flag that blows in the wind from the flagpole. The three words are printed on the napkins at dinner and the bath towels in the room. The cult brainwashing of an open mind has begun. Can you guess what the three words are? I will end my letter with them. Here is your quiz to test what you know about taxation. Most people know in general that the rich pay the vast majority of the taxes in this country ALREADY. The top 20-percent of Americans PAY 80-percent of all the taxes collected. Your quiz question is what percent of the taxable income in America do the top 20-percent MAKE ? The answer to the the question is 20-percent. That is right, the people who
PAY 80-percent of the taxes make only 20-percent of all the money. Shocking, is it not? In fact people making 200k on down to zero make 80-percent of all the taxable income made in America. The majority of money is not produced by Warren Buffet, Bill Gates or Donald Trump, as Democrats would have you believe. It is you the teacher, the firemen and the carpenter who produce the lions share by a very large margin. Total taxable income for those earning between one dollar and $100k is about $2-trillion. Total taxable income for those earning between $100k and $200k is about $1.3 trillion. Total taxable income for people making ten million dollars up is about $375-billion. The three secret little words: “tax the rich”. The words are “Democratic duct tape” for every leaky budget, handout, bailout and welfare jalopy ever dreamed up by the donkey. Tony Boutin Gilford
We need to teach our children values; what happens is not okay To the editor, With all that is going on in the world today disasters in almost every state, wars, floods and tornadoes. That should tell everyone that GOD is mad at his people and is showing his power. It is not just the planet getting warmer and warmer. It is because GOD has been taken out of just about everything. Divorces, no values, no baptism anymore, but a few that do it. People do not even go to church like they use to do. Who is living with whom. Who are having babies out of wedlock. People are living with each
ing etc. I can go on and on. You know what I mean. Like I have said before, things will get worse until all of us wake up and get to where moral mean something like it did way back when in the good old days. Read the Bible, it tells it all just what is taking place in the world. When I say PRAY to GOD to heal us and the nation I was not kidding. Just look around you and see what is happening everywhere. You can not run away from the truth. We need to teach our children values instead of letting what happens is okay. It is not okay. Way see next page

LETTERS Reps were elected to represent us, not power-boaters from away To the editor, As a voter following the “progress” of Senate Bill 27 (raising the boat speed limits in “the Broads”) I am very appreciative of Michael Kitch’s report in The Sun’s edition of May 4 with regards to the House Transportation Committee’s action on the bill, which was 11 to 6 to NOT recommend the bill to the full House. What I particularly dis-appreciate about our New Hampshire “democracy” in action is how House Speaker Bill O’Brien blatantly interfered in the committee’s deliberations to load the vote with those in favor of the speed limit increase. To quote from Kitch’s article: “... as the committee convened, O’Brien swept into the room with five Republican representatives in tow intending to replace any absent committee members by his appointment.” Three committee members were absent, so O’Brien promptly picked three of his five shills to fill in and cast their votes as they had been directed. Mind you, these were representatives who had not participated in any of the committee’s deliberations on SB-27 or heard any of the testimony at the public hearing where the cases presented were overwhelming against raising the speed limit. The testimony against even came from marina operators who made the case their business had increased due to the Big Lake being more “calm” after the present speed limits were enacted. An aside, which is not intended to be subtle, is that the Republican leadership of the House is touting how friendly they are to fostering business in New Hampshire. The marina operators will be having trouble with that
if SB-27 passes the House. My wonderment increases as to who is “buying” our New Hampshire Legislature? Senator James Forsythe — who lives as far away from the lake as his district permits — in the Senate was one of the most vocal supporters of raising the speed limits. He has acknowledged (page one story, Laconia Daily Sun of April 28) that he has enjoyed “a valuable and profitable friendship” with Larry Lepard. Politicians should learn not to use the term “profitable” in such a context because it is bound to create speculation in the minds of voters as to what form the “profit” takes. The good of the people may not be profiting. It is not an unreasonable stretch to wonder if campaign contributions could be resulting in certain votes. This is certainly not new news — it may not be just in Washington, D.C., but possibly right here in our own backyard with the N.H. legislative leadership employing unusual means toward enacting SB-27 into law. The speed limit bill has now moved from the Senate to the House, where not a single member of the Transportation Committee is from a district bordering Lake Winnipesaukee. Giving credit where credit is due, however, 11 of those members cast their votes based on the testimony they heard overwhelmingly opposed to raising the lake’s speed limits. If The Laconia Daily Sun’s readers have an opinion, either pro or con, on this issue, it is not too late to let your state representatives know what that is. They are elected to represent you, not the moneyed power-boaters from some place else. Bob Longabaugh Alton Bay
WinnFABS is good at putting out perception there is a problem To the editor, In response to Mary Hutchins recent letter to the editor, 11 members of the N.H. House Transportation Committee voted against the bill (SB-27), but not all spoke out against it either. If three additional members of the committee voted on facts and were not hood-winked, the outcome would have been far different. Many members of the Transportation Committee. and for that matter many members of the House, are not aware of the issues of the lake and are not boaters. It’s a sad day when members of a committee will base their vote on how many people will stack a committee hearing, or send them an e-mail. Unfortunately WinnFABS and the same core group of retired people and their multiple paid lobbyists that show up hearing after hearing can do this. They have been extremely good at putting out the perception… let me
repeat, perception …. that there is a problem on the lake and every one is in favor of speed limits. They have pushed this issue year after year in our legislature, until they finally got something passed, and then tell the rest of us that the issue is put to bed and we should leave the speed limits alone. What Hypocrisy! For them it was never put to bed until they got their way, and this issue will not be put to bed until there is a reasonable compromise. 45/30 is not reasonable. If SB-27 is not passed it will be back until a reasonable compromise has been put in place. The sad truth is that our largest, most open body of water in the state is restricted because a small, well-funded group with nothing but time on their hands wants it that way. Period, facts be dammed. Bob Flannery Deerfield & Alton
from preceding page back when parents were parents and the children respected them. Today is a different story. So much for the future of us, our children ,and the world. So how do we get back to where we use to be? It is a no-brainer. Where do you think we all came from? In case you did not know
it is our creator JESUS CHRIST! So I know it is time to be praying for peace and everything else. Prayer is powerful when it is all of us together. Well there it is and i said it. No! I am not a fanatic, I do know where I came from. Anna DeRose Moultonborough
Laconia firefighters ask for ruling that they had a deal & city went back on its word By Michael Kitch
CONCORD — The city and its firefighters are awaiting a ruling from the Public Employee Labor Relations Board (PELRB) on the charge that the city engaged in unfair labor practices during negotiations aimed at drafting a new collective bargaining agreement. The Laconia Professional Firefighters have been working without a contract since last July and talks reached an impasse last September. Attorneys for both parties agreed to forgo a hearing and to accept the decision of the board based on written presentations, which were submitted in December. Contract negotiations began in January, 2010, six months before the expiration of the old agreement. The union agreed to forgo a cost of living adjustment (COLA) but asked for a “me too” clause, providing that if any municipal employees were granted pay raises other than “step” pay increases, which were assumed, the firefighters would be awarded the same increase. The union requested an assurance that there would be no lay offs or changes in the assignment of overtime with no decrease in staffing. Finally, the union sought an assurance that the dollar amount of the employee contribution to the health insurance premium would not be increased. A month later City Manager Eileen Cabanel advised Richard Molan, the union’s attorney, that the City Council would not agree to the “me too” and “no lay off” clauses, but indicated that the other proposals were acceptable. When city officials and union representatives next met on May 5 the union withdrew the two clauses. Soon afterward, the State Employees Association (SEA), representing employees of the Department of Public Works, entered a tentative agreement with the city, in which the union agreed to forgo step increases for the one-year term of the contract. Cabanel anticipated the council would expect the same of the other unions and on May 10 personnel director Paula Baumoel informed Jason Bean of the Laconia Professional Firefighters that “we would like you to consider it, and meet with us to talk about it.” A week later Bean replied that “we wouldn’t be open to foregoing our step raises for the upcoming contract year.” City officials and firefighters did not meet again until July when the union was informed that the council had not
voted on a tentative agreement and would not accept a contract with step increases. For the union, Molan claims that the parties reached “a defacto tentative agreement” in May, when the firefighters withdrew the “me too” and “no lay off” clauses. He claims that by subsequently asking the union to forgo step increases, the city bargained in bad faith, citing a text on labor law that reads “the interjection of numerous new proposals for the first time after several months of bargaining, or the submission of new issues after the parties have reached agreement . . . [are] indications of bad faith.” Molan called the city’s conduct “simply unconscionable.” Mark Broth, representing the city, explains that the city manager, not the City Council, conducts contract negotiations with the several bargaining units and is obliged to bargain in good faith. The role of the council is limited to considering only the cost items in a proposed collective bargaining agreement. By advising the union that the council would not approve a contract with step increases, which represent a cost item, Broth says “the city manager was actually trying to make the bargaining process more efficient.” Broth dismisses the claim that a tentative agreement was reached in May, noting that there was no written confirmation of an agreement. Moreover, when Bean informed Baumoel that the union would not consider foregoing step increases, he closed by saying “we look forward to keeping an open line of communication with you during these negotiations.” Far from bargaining in bad faith, Broth contends, had a tentative agreement including step increases been presented to the council, it would have been “dead on arrival.” He argues that for the city manager to advise the union how the council views a proposed agreement is not an unfair labor practice. Nor, he continues, did the council interject new demands into the negotiations. Instead, councilors simply expressed issues of concern while the bargaining process was underway, adding that the council is entitled “to adjust its thinking . . . up and through the process of voting.” The union has asked the PELRB to find that the city acted in bad faith and require the council to ratify a contract based on the proposals presented and accepted in May. The city requests that the charges be dismissed.
MEMPHIS from page 3 “I’m going to sleep thinking, ‘I hope they don’t evacuate the island and we wake up and we’re the only ones here,’” said Emily Tabor, a first-year student at the University of Tennessee’s College of Pharmacy in Memphis who lives on Mud Island. Mud Island, a three-mile-long strip of land that is part of Memphis, has about 1,500 homes and businesses and 6,000 mostly well-off residents, many of them living in gleaming, 20-yearold houses with wide river views and traditional Southern touches such as columns, porches and bay windows.
Tourists can take a tram or drive across a small bridge to visit Mud Island’s park, amphitheater and a museum devoted to life on the Mississippi. Among the exhibits: the Theater of Disasters Gallery, which recounts steamboat accidents and other tragedies on the river. Emergency officials warned that residents may need to leave their homes as the river rises toward an expected crest next Wednesday of 48 feet — about 3 feet higher than on Thursday. The record in Memphis, 48.7 feet, was set in 1937. see next page

Holly Jones offers an explanation to the Laconia Police as to how a U-Haul truck she was driving in the downtown area on Wednesday morning ended up in the middle of Rotary Riverside Park. (John Moriarty photo)
By Gail OBer
LACONIA — A woman driving a U-Haul box truck Wednesday morning around 9 a.m. accidentally drove into Rotary Riverside Park, damaging a stone wall and some of the surrounding terrain. Police said Holly Jones, 34, of 103 Blueberry Lane initially tried to drive the truck into the Laconia Parking Garage but she realized it was too tall to clear the roof of the ramp. Sgt. Gary Hubbard said it appeared she came down the entrance ramp and inadvertently pushed her foot down on the gas pedal rather than the brake pedal. He said the truck shot across Beacon Street East, went between two parked cars, skimmed tree and a light pole before crashing down over the stone wall. Hubbard said Jones was uninjured and there were no people near the area where she landed. The truck needed to be towed from the park. Belknap Mill Director John Moriarty said he was sitting in his office when he was jolted from his chair
by the crash. “You have no idea how much noise a near-empty box track makes when it falls off of a two-foot wall,” Moriarty said. Moriarty said Kevin Dunleavy the director of the city Parks and Recreation department evaluated the damage yesterday and taped off a section of the stone wall that will need repairing. He also said one of the decorative trees was skimmed and it appeared the lamp post was struck by one of the truck’s outside mirrors, denting the light pole. There appeared to be some minor damage to the lawn. A Parks and Recreation administrator said Dunleavy had left for the day but she said he believes either the woman’s insurance or the town’s insurance will cover the damage. Hubbard said Jones was arrested because of an outstanding warrant issued by the Belmont Police Department. Belmont Chief Vincent Biaocchetti said the warrant was for theft by unauthorized taking (shoplifting.)
from preceding page On Thursday, the Mississippi spilled over a park and onto Riverside Drive in downtown Memphis. Water pooled at the lowest end of Beale Street, the most famous thoroughfare in the history of the blues, but it was about a half-mile from the street’s popular restaurants, shops and bars and did not threaten any homes or businesses. In south Memphis, Maria Flores spent her fourth day in a church shelter with her husband and three children. They had to flee their trailer in the lowlying working-class Memphis suburb of Millington when it was swamped by stinky, dirty water. They have no flood insurance, and sleeping in a room
with 20 other people, including crying children, has proved difficult. “We don’t have money, we don’t have anything,” Flores said. “It’s like a bad dream we can’t wake up from. I just want this water to go away.” Farther south, the Mississippi Delta was starting to flood, too. In Greenville, Miss., the yacht club was submerged and two floating casinos were closing down. In Rolling Fork, the birthplace of bluesman Muddy Waters, Highway 61 was expected to become impassable. “It’s weird,” said Lakeysha Stamps, a waitress at the Highway 61 Cafe. “Here we are today and everything’s fine. And tomorrow there could be all this water.”

HUOT from page one the Senate Capital Budget Committee. Tilton and Rausch agreed not to support an appropriation for only one of the two projects, but to insist that both be funded in the biennium. Although Laconia Superintendent Bob Champlin and Huot Center Director Scott Davis attended the hearing, only Tilton addressed the committee and he spoke briefly. Rausch and Senator Sylvia Larsen (D-Concord), who apart from the chairman Senator David Boutin (R-Hooksett) and Senator Bob Odell (R-Lempster), were the only members of the committee at the hearing both expressed strong support for funding the two centers. However, Larsen questioned whether the capital budget was in step with the operating budget, since the House cut funding for tuition and transportation for students attending vocational technical centers. Apart from Laconia, the Huot Center draws some 200 students from five neighboring school districts — Gilford, Winnisquam Regional, Inter-Lakes, Shaker Regional and Franklin — and the state contributes 75-percent of their tuition along with a share of their transportation cost. The governor’s budget appropriated $6.9-mil-
lion for tuition and transportation, the minimum required to qualify for federal matching funds. The House trimmed $1-million from the appropriation, effectively forfeiting federal funding by failing to meet the necessary maintenance of effort. Larsen said that school officials in Concord projected that enrollment at the vocational technical center at Concord High School would drop from 600 to 200 if tuition and transportation funding was not restored. Champlin said that the five districts with students at the Huot Center were “nervous,” but none had indicated they would withhold students. Lisa Danley of the Department of Education told the committee that the Senate Finance Committee addressed the issue while reviewing the operating budget. Although the committee took no decision, she sensed that the chairman and members wished to restore the funding. “I am hopeful the centers will not see the impact they feared,” she said. Addressing Larsen’s observation that the state was investing in the centers with one hand and reducing their enrollment with the other, Tilton said that by the time the renovations are complete the fiscal crisis weighing on the operating budget will have passed and funding for tuition and transporta-
tion would be assured. After the hearing Champlin expressed his appreciation to both the House and the Senate for their support of the Huot Center. The Laconia School Board committee drafting a plan on how to spend the renovation/expansion project money resumes its work next week. Two primary options are on the table at this time: the first would move the entire operation into 80,000-square-feet of space in the Aavid building at the O’Shea Industrial Park, freeing up some 55,000-square-feet on the Laconia High School campus. The second would involve the building a new 40,000-square-foot addition to the south side of the high school, while continuing the use a good portion of the existing space. Classrooms on the second floor of the Huot wing would be returned to the high school for general use. The overall budget for the project is $10-million. City Council has already agreed to fund $2.5-million of the total if the state comes up with the balance. The Aavid option would find the city paying something on the order of $1.9-million for the space, which would be legally viewed as a condominium, as the manufacturing company would continue to use the balance of the floor area in its Laconia plant. OBAMA from page 2 There were happy faces, shouts of “USA! USA!” and flags waved in the crowd, but there also was heavy security and most people were cordoned off blocks from where the president could be seen. Referring to the daring U.S. raid to take down bin Laden in Pakistan, Obama said of all those who died on Sept. 11: “It says we keep them in our hearts. We haven’t forgotten.” Days after the attacks, President George W. Bush stood here with firefighters and a bullhorn. There was a different feel a decade later as another president paid his respects. Obama met with firefighters, then police, before having a solemn moment at ground zero and meeting privately with families of those who died. “This is a symbolic site of the extraordinary sacrifice that was made on that terrible day,” the president said at Engine 54, Ladder 4, Battalion 9. The firehouse in New York’s theater district lost 15 firefighters on 9/11. The fire crews gave him hearty applause. Obama said the American pursuit of the terrorist leader “sent a message around the world but also sent a message here back home that when we say we will never forget, we mean what we say, that our commitment to making sure that justice is done is something that transcended politics, transcended party.” Bin Laden was shot dead in a raid on his Pakistan compound early Monday in Pakistan, the result of years of painstaking intelligence work and a covert military mission in which none of the U.S. commandos was killed. The president closed his eyes and clasped his hands at the outdoor memorial where the twin towers of the World Trade Center once dominated the Manhattan skyline. 60 stories high. Mammoth fountains and reflecting pools mark the footprints of the fallen towers. Now the nearby skyline is filled with construction machinery. The emerging skyscraper informally known as Freedom Tower is more than Obama spoke with children who lost parents and adults who lost spouses. As he bowed his head, a jetliner screamed by, far overhead. The president also peppered his brief comments with reminders of the challenges ahead, and his call for a new spirit of national unity. It wasn’t a moment for celebrating the military operation that killed bin Laden; that may come Friday, when the president visits Fort Campbell, Ky., home to the Army unit involved in transporting Navy SEALS in and out of bin Laden’s compound. White House officials said Obama intended to privately thank participants in the raid. Obama said Thursday he hoped the results of the raid on bin Laden’s compound showed that “we did what we said we were going to do, and that Americans, even in the midst of tragedy, will come together, across the years, across politics, across party, across administrations, to make sure that justice is done.”
Clock not yet ticking on Wide Open Saloon demolition order because some notification papers have yet to be served By Gail OBer
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — While the order of the City Council to demolish the former landmark hotel and restaurant/saloon that was gutted by fire last September has been filed in Laconia District Court, not all the lien holders on the property have been served so there will be a delay in the demolition. Code Enforcement Officer Bill Stewart said Alfred Mitchell has yet to be served paperwork ordering the demolition of the Wide Open Saloon. Stewart said once all lien holders have been notified, the clock begins ticking on a 20-day compliance period but the clock can’t be set unless all interested parties have been served. The goal of the City Council, code enforcement, police and fire has been to clear the site of the remaining structure and rubble before the Annual Motorcycle Week begins the weekend of June 10. Further complicating things is a
lawsuit filed by the building’s owner, 38 Endicott North LLC through its agent Brandi Baldi, against the insurance company Lloyds of London which, according the documents filed in the Belknap County, has refused to pay the claim, even though the fire was determined to be accidental by the N.H. State Fire Marshall. Nor has Lloyd’s returned the premium Baldi paid for the insurance. Lloyds has until early July to file its response to Baldi’s suit. Stewart also said the city is actively negotiating a solution with the Baldis but said these dicussions are confidential. Seth Creighton of the Laconia Planning Department said the city code allows that any lot with an existing structure can rebuild in the existing footprint within one year following a demolition. He said he doesn’t know enough about the actual lot to know if it is conforming or non-conforming.
Shaker committee recommends cutting $57k from co-curricular activity budget BELMONT — The Shaker Regional School District, like most others in the state, is still struggling with their final budget for the 2011-12 school year but reported Thursday night that its finance subcommittee has decided to cut co-curricular activities by $57,538, the second school resource officer’s position by $10,000 and the line for legal fees by $10,000. Following the announcements, the board voted to enter into a non-public session citing personnel compensation and union contracts as the reason.
Chair Preston Tuthil said the board was still discussing staff compensation but that all pink slips issued earlier this year have been rescinded. The board also voted unanimously to continue the driver’s education program for one year but cautioned parents and students that, depending on the actions of the state Legislature regarding driver’s education reimbursements, the cost per student may go from $500 to $650. “Like everything else, the budget is a moving target,” Tuthil said.
TRAINS from page 2 believe the al-Qaida chief had been hiding for up to six years. Other intelligence information gathered at the compound represented a terrorist wish list but has revealed no specific plan so far, a U.S. official said. He said documents indicated a desire to hit the U.S. with large-scale attacks in major cities and on key dates such as anniversaries and holidays. But there was no sign those plans were anything more than ambitions. The U.S. official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss intelligence matters. Intelligence analysts have been reviewing and translating the material, looking for information about pending plots and other terror connections. Even before the raid, intelligence officials for years have warned that al-Qaida is interested in attacking major U.S. cities on holidays, anniversaries and other dates that are uniquely American. “While it is clear that there was some level of planning for this type of operation in February 2010, we have no recent information to indicate an active ongoing plot to target transportation and no information on possible locations or specific targets,” the warning Thursday said.
The FBI and Homeland Security told local officials to be on the lookout for clips or spikes missing from train tracks, packages left on or near the tracks and other indications that a train could be vulnerable. Homeland Security spokesman Matt Chandler said, “This alleged al-Qaida plotting is based on initial reporting, which is often misleading or inaccurate and subject to change.” He said the government has no plans to issue an official terror alert because of it. An official with the Association of American Railroads said the organization has received warnings from the federal government and is sharing the information throughout the railroad network. “We are always making sure that the system is run as safely and securely as possible,” the organization’s spokeswoman, Patricia Reilly, said. U.S. officials have disrupted other terror plots that targeted rails, including a 2009 plan to blow up the New York City subway system. On Monday the FBI and Homeland Security warned law enforcement officials around the country that bin Laden’s death could inspire retaliatory attacks in the U.S., and terrorists not yet known to the intelligence community could be operating inside the country.

‘Anything Goes’ on stage at I-LHS this weekend MEREDITH — The Inter-Lakes High School Drama Club is presenting “Anything Goes” this weekend at the Inter-Lakes Community Auditorium. This famous Broadway musical features music and lyrics by Cole Porter. Set in 1934, the madcap comedy takes place on an ocean liner bound from New York to London.
There will be shows at 7 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights as well as a matinee at 1 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for seniors and students. Tickets may be purchased at the auditorium box office starting 30 minutes before each show.
approaches besides the voucher plan that recently passed the House after a contentious debate that appears to have hurt the party with older voters. Republicans got an earful from their constituents on Medicare during a recent congressional recess. Michigan Rep. Dave Camp, the House Ways and Means Committee chairman, said he supports the GOP approach, but isn’t willing to go to the mat for legislation that has no prospects of becoming law. “I’m not interested in laying down more markers,” said Camp. “I’m interested in solutions. ... Let’s figure out where there is common ground and let’s get there as soon as we can.” Asked about Camp’s comments, House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said they are “a recognition
of the political realities that we face.” Nonetheless, Boehner said the GOP Medicare remake remains on the table. “Let me make this clear,” Boehner said. “When it comes to increasing the debt limit and the need to have reductions in spending, nothing is off the table except raising taxes.” President Barack Obama and lawmakers of both parties face an Aug. 2 deadline to enact legislation that permits the government to increase its borrowing authority and meet its obligations to lenders. Failure to raise the debt limit beyond the current $14.3 trillion would call into question the creditworthiness of the U.S. government and trigger an eco-

BOATS from page one Boat Club of NH will be the first such operation on Lake Winnipesaukee. After paying a one-time $4,000 initiation fee, which is being waived for the first several members, club members will pay a $3,600 annual fee. For that amount, they will be able to reserve a boat for a day. When they arrive to use the boat, it will be cleaned, its gas tank will be full and it will be otherwise ready for a day on the big lake. When they’ve had enough boating for the day, members re-fill the gas tank, replacing the gas they’ve used, and return the boat. Yacht club staff will take care of all the chores associated with boat ownership: cleaning, buttoning the cover, mechanical maintenance. “Now it’s our headache,” said Mailloux. And because the boat club is located at the marina, members also don’t have to concern themselves with launching and loading the boat onto a trailer or renting a boat slip. The marina will provide insurance for the boat and club members piloting it. Mailloux said club members must be at least 18 years old and have a safe boater’s certificate. Yacht club staff will show members how to use each boat as required. The club will start its first season with a fleet of four boats: a 240 Sea Ray Sundancer, a 210
Sea Ray Select, a 22 Berkshire Pontoon and for the fishermen an AlumiCraft Navigator. All boats will be outfitted with GPS systems to keep unfamiliar boaters from wandering into some of Winnipesaukee’s more treacherous sections. More boats will be added to the fleet to keep pace with membership. Mailloux said the club will seek to maintain a ratio of one boat for every five members. Members can reserve boats by using the club’s website, by calling the yacht club or by visiting the yacht club’s office. Up to four reservations may be placed at any given time. Aside from the cost to refill the gas tank, there is no per-use fee. Of those who have already signed up for the club, Mailloux said about half are local residents and half live in Massachusetts. Some of them are new to boating and see the club as a chance to try different types of vessels, other members have previously owned boats and appreciate the headaches they’re avoiding through the club. One of the members owns a boat but joined solely to have access to the fishing boat – his wife would prefer if he didn’t fish with the boat they own. “It really is a mixed bag, everyone has their own reasons,” Mailloux said. The American Boat Club of NH will loan out its first boat on May 15.
GOP from page 2 nomic crisis. “All of us understand we have got to achieve results,” House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., said after the meeting. The two sides agreed “to find commonality” and there was “general agreement things have to change,” he added. “You’re not going to get to the big nuclear political issues,” said a Democratic official in the room. “But there’s going to have to be enough give and take on the other pieces that you get enough of a deal to be credible.” The Democrat required anonymity to speak more frankly about the negotiations. “Knowing that we are very far apart between the president, the Senate and where we are, we are not under any illusion that we’re going to get some grand slam agreement,” House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan told reporters Thursday morning. “Let’s get a single or a double, let’s get a down payment, let’s get some spending cuts, some spending controls as part of this.” With the government borrowing more than 40 cents of every dollar it spends, Republicans see the need to increase the debt limit as an opportunity to make deep spending cuts. Benefit programs such as Medicare and Medicaid could face some cuts, but not the overhaul called for in the House GOP budget plan. Cantor came to the talks with $715 billion in proposed savings — culled from a GOP budget plan that passed the House last month — from other benefit programs, including cuts to farm subsidies, loan subsidies for college and graduate students, and food stamps, according to an aide. Camp said Obama’s debt commission pointed to cuts that can be made in Medicare. One big item would involve revamping Medicare’s rules so beneficiaries pay a greater share of everyday medical expenses but gain more protection from catastrophic costs. The bipartisan plan also would squeeze savings from drug makers, hospitals and home health agencies. In addition to Cantor, Thursday’s group included the second-ranking Senate Republican leader, Arizona’s Jon Kyl; the chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Hawaii Democrat Daniel Inouye; the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, Montana Democrat Max Baucus, and senior House Democrats Jim Clyburn of South Carolina and Chris Van Hollen of Maryland. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and White House budget director Jacob Lew were the top-ranking administration officials backing up Biden. As senior as the group is, it’ll take the involvement of the president himself, as well as Boehner and the top leaders in the Senate to reach an agreement. The deficit could reach $1.6 trillion this year, so both sides are setting modest expectations. But they said the meeting offered a chance to identify even small cuts that can build toward a broader agreement.
pressure off the talks when he told Congress this week that the government can meet its obligations through Aug. 2, by using a series of bookkeeping maneuvers. That’s nearly a month longer than the July 8 deadline Geithner had cited previously. The government is borrowing an average of $125 billion a month. House Republicans have passed a budget blueprint that aims to cut spending by more than $5 trillion over the next decade. Biden sought to flesh out a plan that President Barack Obama outlined last month that would reduce deficits by $4 trillion over 12 years. Obama’s proposal calls for about $1 trillion in higher tax revenues, a nonstarter with House Republicans. Negotiators planned to meet again Tuesday.

Angels pound Red Sox 11-0 to gain series split BOSTON (AP) — Maybe sleep is overrated for the Los Angeles Angels. Less than 12 hours after beating Boston in a 13-inning game that was delayed past closing time Thursday morning, the Angels came out swinging in an 11-0 afternoon shutout of the Red Sox that salvaged a split in the series for Los Angeles. The Angels finished with 18 hits and had a trio of three-run innings while beating a team that owned them last month. Los Angeles entered the four-game series 0-6 against Boston. “We came in this morning and got the bats rolling early,” said Howie Kendrick, one of three Angels with a pair of RBIs in the shutout. “It definitely feels good to get the last two, especially after they swept us.” Bobby Abreu drove in three for the Angels, who chased Boston starter John Lackey (2-4) in the fifth after scoring eight runs on 10 hits. Rookie Mark Trumbo hit his sixth homer and second of the series, and Joel Pineiro (1-0) got his first win of the season, holding Boston to three hits over 5 2-3 innings. Relievers Rich Thompson and Francisco Rodriguez preserved the shutout as the Angels prevented the Red Sox from getting a runner past second. “You saw a bunch of guys that were physically beat up and mentally tired — got about 6 hours of sleep — and came out and played a good game today,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. The Angels put together three-run innings in the third, fourth and fifth and became the fourth team to shut out Boston this season. The Red Sox fell to 3-4 during an 11-game homestand, which continues
Friday night against Minnesota. For the second time since an 0-6 start, the Red Sox got within one win of .500 and lost the next two. Boston ran out of relief pitchers during the rain-delayed loss that stretched several hours into Thursday, then couldn’t hit when the afternoon game began. “Last night was rough on the guys,” Lackey said. “I definitely think there’s a sense of me needing to pitch well to get some momentum going, for sure. If I would have pitched better early on I think guys might have found a little more energy.” The Angels had no such problems at the plate, coming up just one short of their season high for hits set against Kansas City on April 3. It was way more offense than Pineiro needed as he kept the Sox scoreless for 5 2-3 innings, striking out two and walking four. Jacoby Ellsbury extended his hitting streak to 14 with a single in the eighth inning as Boston strung together a few late hits long after they needed them. Lackey trailed 3-0 and was up to 62 pitches by the time he got out of the third inning — then threw 29 more in the fourth, allowing five straight singles with two outs. Peter Bourjos, Erick Aybar, Howie Kendrick and Abreu hit consecutive singles to center, and Torii Hunter broke the streak with a single to right, which drove in Kendrick for the third run of the inning. Vernon Wells led off the fifth for the Angels with a single and stole second, which proved unnecessary when Trumbo drove a 2-2 pitch into the Green Monster seats.
EASTON, Mass. (AP) — A 17-year-old Easton youth has been ordered held on $500,000 bail for allegedly shooting his mother in the back and burying her body in a shallow grave in her back yard. A not-guilty plea was entered on behalf of Matthey Worster at his arraignment in Taunton District Court on Thursday on a charge of armed assault with intent to murder. Prosecutors say autopsy results will determine if charges will be upgraded to murder.
His mother, 42-year-old Beth Spartachino, had recently divorced her husband and the teen moved in with his dad. Police received a call Wednesday night reporting the victim was missing. An investigation led to Worster’s arrest hours later and discovery of his mom’s body early Thursday. A state police bomb squad was called in after officers found gunpowder and other dangerous materials at the home.

Oscar-nominated film ‘The Visitor’ to be shown at Laconia Public Library
LACONIA — The Oscar-nominated film “The Visitor” will be shown for free at the Public Library at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, May 9. The first in a new series of international films to be shown monthly free of charge throughout the year, the Library’s international film series is presented to enlarge one’s vision of different cultures and to give background for the changes and processes happening throughout the world and here in the U.S. In “The Visitor” (2007), an up-state college professor finds a mysterious young couple (Syrian/Senegalese) living in his New York apartment when he comes there to attend a conference. Recently widowed, he must decide how he will respond to them. Does he listen and get involved or just send them on their way? “The Visitor” is an engaging story of how one may get to be an undocumented immigrant and the fear and terror that comes with being one. Reactions to the movie will be shared after the showing. Participants will also have the opportunity to suggest movies of their choice for future showings. This free movie series is sponsored by the Laconia Human Relations Committee, the Laconia Library, and the Laconia Historical and Museum Society. Brief refreshments will be served. All are welcome. For more information contact 527-1278.

Laconia Center to celebrate new Transitional Care Unit on May 11 LACONIA — Laconia Center will celebrate its new Transitional Care Unit (TCU) with an Open House on Wednesday, May 11. The Center’s 11,000-square-foot stand alone TCU provides rehabilitation therapy and treatment after leaving the hospital but before returning home. Laconia Center has developed and launched a successful orthopedic rehabilitation program supported by Dr. John Grobman. It will follow a patient-centered outcomefocused approach to treatment with the goal of helping patients recover and return to their prior living situation as quickly as possible. “Laconia Center is extraordinary because integrated care teams, physicians, nurses, and therapists work together to create individualized care plans to ensure daily progress and a speedy recovery,” explained Dr. Grobman. “I am delighted to provide medical oversight to this specialized care unit.” The TCU offers enhanced clinical capabilities and amenities including 14 large private rooms with private baths and showers; rehab services
tailored to individual needs; a highlyskilled interdisciplinary care team which works with the patient and family to develop an individualized care plan; new state-of-the art therapy gym with new state-of-the-art medical equipment; hotel-like amenities that include flat screen televisions, in-room telephones, computer stations with Internet access, café, and an enclosed courtyard; and 24-hour coverage by RN’s who have specialized training, education and experience with the care of post-acute patients.

CONCORD — March for Meals, a charitable walk-a-thon to raise public awareness of the Meals on Wheels Program, will be held at Memorial Field beginning at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 14. Elder Services of the Community Action Program Belknap-Merrimack Counties, Inc., including the Laconia Senior Center, will host the event to celebrate the Meals on Wheels Program (MOW), which provides nutritious meals, safety wellness checks, and connection to community resources. Nancy Parascandola, coordinator of the Concord Meals on Wheels program, described the impact of Meals on Wheels on participants, citing a Vietnam veteran living with cancer who has been receiving Meals on Wheels for over a year. “I had not seen this gentleman for two months; previously he was not able to get up and walk to the door. To my surprise, he greeted me at the door. I simply could not believe the difference in his physical strength and demeanor.” The participant said, “Now that I am in this situation, I really value the service. I appreciate that someone checks in on me Monday through Friday when my family is busy. I want to make sure other veterans are participating in Meals on Wheels if they
can benefit from the program. If it wasn’t for Meal on Wheels, I would be eating crackers and milk.” The Elder Services’ Meals on Wheels Program is committed to eradicating senior hunger in Belknap and Merrimack Counties. Meals on Wheels also reduces the isolation experienced by many older adults as frequently, the Meals on Wheels driver is the only person the senior may see all day. The relationship with the driver provides important human contact and a safety net; particularly by those seniors living alone. This also provides peace of mind for family members who may be living out of state. Meals on Wheels enables older adults to maintain their health, dignity, and independence. Elder Services is proud to have served 970 Meals on Wheels clients with 221,978 from July 2009 – June 30, 2010. With the population of older adults expected to double by the year 2050, the time to support Meals on Wheels and the eradication of hunger and malnutrition is now. The March for Meals walk will raise funds to help pay for the home delivered meals provided to the increasing number of seniors living in Belknap and Merrimack Counties. For more information on how to register to participate in the walk or to make a pledge, call 524-7689.

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Some things are best excluded from your life altogether because they are too difficult to control. Choose your passions carefully, and invite only the manageable ones into your life. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Others seek your opinion, not because they will allow themselves to be influenced by it, but because it will show them who you are. They will decide whether or not to trust you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Exercise and study are not optional extras only for those who have time on their hands. These elements are essential to your happiness now -- as important as anything else you do to keep life running smoothly. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your ancestors had to struggle for freedom, and sometimes you feel that the fight continues in you. It’s a different battlefield, but the battle is the same. This is your chance to be valiant. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ve been busy and focused on others. Carve out some time for taking care of yourself. Believe it or not, this is your main responsibility in life -- not one you should avoid for too long. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 6). You’re not averse to competition. You realize that the big rewards go to those willing to take a risk. Your calm and confident ways will give you the edge. June is filled with romantic days and nights. Community service plays into your social life in July. New work comes in August. You share a special connection with Aries and Libra people. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 4, 22, 49 and 15.
by Richard Thompson
ARIES (March 21-April 19). One thing becomes glaringly clear today. You no longer can continue in the old way. An unusual occurrence will stir up your system. You’ll change the plan because of what happens. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your friends do what feels natural to them, which leads to actions that you may not understand at all. Whether they support or sink you, they feel they are doing the right thing. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be in a daring mood, leaning into a positive view of the future. Your plans will shape you. However, the present moment is all you’ll ever really have or need. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Struggling to make money is not your favorite way to spend the hours. On the other hand, you love to spend time and energy on a cause that helps others. Your work could go either way today, depending on how you look at it. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your choices won’t please everyone, no matter what they are. Defending them may be a waste of time. Avoid the argument, and just know that as long as you do right by your own code, good will come of it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll be united in a common purpose, or at least in the general sense that such a thing does exist. There’s an energetic bond between you and the group. And though it’s invisible, you can feel it. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Wishes are like magic seeds. Don’t cast them to the wind to be carried far from you. You’ll never see them land that way. Focus on what’s close to you. Grow your happiness in your own yard.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, May 6, 2011— Page 25
––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, May 6, the 126th day of 2011. There are 239 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 6, 1861, Confederate President Jefferson Davis approved an act passed by the Confederate Congress recognizing that a state of war existed with the United States of America. Arkansas and Tennessee passed Ordinances of Secession from the Union. (Arkansas’ secession took effect immediately; Tennessee’s was ratified in a popular vote the following month.) On this date: In 1889, the Paris Exposition formally opened, featuring the just-completed Eiffel Tower. In 1910, Britain’s Edwardian era came to an end upon the death of King Edward VII; he was succeeded by George V. In 1935, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed an executive order creating the Works Progress Administration. In 1937, the hydrogen-filled German airship Hindenburg burned and crashed in Lakehurst, N.J., killing 35 of the 97 people on board and a Navy crewman on the ground. In 1941, Josef Stalin assumed the Soviet premiership, replacing Vyacheslav M. Molotov. In 1942, during World War II some 15,000 Americans and Filipinos on Corregidor surrendered to Japanese forces. In 1954, medical student Roger Bannister broke the four-minute mile during a track meet in Oxford, England, in 3 minutes, 59.4 seconds. In 1960, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the Civil Rights Act of 1960. Britain’s Princess Margaret married Antony Armstrong-Jones, a commoner, at Westminster Abbey. (They divorced in 1978.) In 1981, Yale architecture student Maya Ying Lin was named winner of a competition to design the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. One year ago: A computerized sell order triggered a “flash crash” on Wall Street, sending the Dow Jones industrials to a loss of nearly 1,000 points in less than half an hour. Today’s Birthdays: Baseball Hall-ofFamer Willie Mays is 80. Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., is 77. Rock singer Bob Seger is 66. Singer Jimmie Dale Gilmore is 66. Gospel singer-comedian Lulu Roman is 65. Actor Alan Dale is 64. Actor Ben Masters is 64. Actor Gregg Henry is 59. Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair is 58. TV personality Tom Bergeron is 56. Actress Roma Downey is 51. Rock singer John Flansburgh (They Might Be Giants) is 51. Actor George Clooney is 50. Actor Clay O’Brien is 50. Rock singer-musician Tony Scalzo (Fastball) is 47. Actress Leslie Hope is 46. Rock musician Mark Bryan (Hootie and the Blowfish) is 44. Rock musician Chris Shiflett (Foo Fighters) is 40. Actress Adrianne Palicki is 28. Actress Gabourey Sidibe is 28.

Dear Annie: I am a white male and have fallen in love with an African-American woman who is 12 years older. I have never met such a wonderful, kind, sweet, caring and loving woman. She makes me laugh. She is my soul mate. I want to spend the rest of my life with her. At the moment, we aren’t dating. We are just friends, but I’d like more than that. The problem is my family. They don’t approve of interracial relationships. My parents are old school. They believe you should stay with your own race. If I brought this woman home, my family would disown me. They are very difficult people. My family is important to me. I don’t make enough money to be on my own. My parents are getting older, and they need my help, and I need theirs. I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to lose my family or this wonderful woman. Forget about counseling. My family would never go for that. -- Interracial Couple Dear Interracial: Relationships are difficult enough, and you have added two additional problems -- your family’s bigotry and a large age difference. You haven’t said whether this woman is romantically interested in you, has children or wants any, or whether you do. It also worries us that you seem to be financially dependent on your parents, an indication that you are quite young, don’t have a stable job or expect to live off an inheritance, none of which demonstrates the level of maturity you will need to handle your family’s reaction. If you love this woman and she returns your feelings, you should have the courage to face your family and let the chips fall where they may. Dear Annie: Last year, I was finally able to break free from a long-term abusive relationship. I now have both children
in my care, a rewarding job and my own apartment. The problem is my smile. During that relationship, I did not take care of myself, especially my dental hygiene. I felt I wasn’t deserving. Now all my income goes toward housing, clothing and feeding my children. There’s not much left over to repair my deteriorating mouth. My kids have dental coverage, thanks to their father, but I do not. I’d love to have a bright smile and beautiful teeth. Is there any way to get help? -- Hidden Smile Dear Hidden: Your state or local health department may be able to direct you to resources. Also check the American Dental Association (ada.org) for information on your state dental association and a list of dental schools or dental hygiene schools in your area. They often offer free or low-cost help as a training tool for students. You might also find assistance through a community health center (call 1-888-ASKHRSA) (1-888-275-4772) or United Way. Good luck. Dear Annie: I chuckled when I read the letter from “Tatted,” the young woman who didn’t want to tell her father about her new tattoo. It reminded me of the time I pierced my ears at home one night. I told my mother and begged her not to tell Dad. I did everything I could to hide it until one night when my aunt and uncle came to visit from out of town. I was so excited, I forgot to pull the hair over my ears. Dad said, “Yeah, she’d pierce her nose, too, if we let her.” I found out 30 years later that my mom had told him the very day I did it. To think I lived with the guilt and anxiety for all that time is pretty funny to me now. Yes, a tattoo (or piercing) may not be his ideal for his daughter, but my father never stopped loving me because of it. -- South Dakota

Meredith Village Savings Bank sponsoring annual Community Calendar and Website Photo Contest MEREDITH — Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB) recently launched its 2011 Community Calendar and Website Photo Contest. Amateur and professional photographers are invited to submit photographs that capture the character and beauty of Belknap, Carroll, and Grafton counties as well as conveying some aspect of community/family life, such as community events, landmarks, or seasonal pastimes. Photos featuring local landscape scenes are highly encouraged. Winners of the contest will have their photos displayed in MVSB’s 2012 Community Calendar or on the bank’s website. Photographers may enter both the calendar and website contests but separate entry forms must be submitted for each contest. In addition, the required format for website entries is different from the format for calendar submissions, so entrants should read the submission requirements for each type of entry very carefully. Official entry forms and complete rules for the contest are available at all 11 MVSB locations throughout the Lakes Region and the Plymouth area. Full contest details and entry forms are also available online at www.mvsb.com/photocontest. All entries are due by the close of business on Friday, July 29. Photos may be dropped off

Players and sponsors sought for NH Sheriff’s Association inaugural golf tournament LACONIA — Players and sponsors are being sought for the New Hampshire Sheriff’s Association’s inaugural tolf tournament to be held at the Pheasant Ridge Country Club in Gilford on Friday, August 26. “We are pleased to announce that the Sheriff’s Association, with the participation of all 10 of New Hampshire’s Sheriffs, will be sponsoring its inaugural golf tournament,” said Craig Wiggin, president of the NHSA. “The Association has a long history of community service and of funding several very generous scholarships and we look forward to do so again.” The cost to play in the tournament is $100 per golfer and the Association is currently seeking players and sponsors to benefit their efforts. “The golf tournament will be open to all members of the public and to candidates wishing to join us,” continued Wiggin. “And if folks can’t join us for an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start, then we hope they’ll consider joining us for a catered lunch immediately following.” Sponsorship opportunities will be available from as little as $50 and all donations are tax deductible as allowed by law for 501 (c) 3 organizations. For more information, call Wiggin at 527-5454.

MEREDITH — Professor Jere Daniell of Dartmouth College will talk about Lakes Region Towns and the American Revolution at the Public Library at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 11.

Among the specific subjects Daniell will cover are population growth, land ownership, and the role of the regional towns in state governance. There will be a chance for questions and answers and refreshments will be served. This free event is sponsored by the New Hampshire Humanities Council and the Friends of the Meredith Library. The public is welcome and no registration is required.
