LACONIA — Introducing “Pay As You Throw” would reduce the cost of collecting transporting and disposing of trash and garbage by at least $1.3-million, according to the projections of a consultant working with the Department of Public Works.

Liz Bedard will make a presentation explaining the operation of the program and the savings it would achieve to the City Council when it meets Monday evening at 7:30 p.m. The city generates approximately 14,000 tons of solid waste a year — 5,200 tons by residents and 8,800 tons by businesses.

Each ton of residential trash costs $64.46 to collect at the curb, $15.80 to transport to Penacook and $66.80 to incinerate, or $147.06. Each ton of solid waste removed from the waste stream by recycling represents an “avoided cost” of $147.24 per ton. On the other hand, the cost of collecting recyclable materials at the curb is fixed at $10,000 a month regardless of the tonnage. Therefore, the more solid waste that see Pay tO tHrOW page 12

SANBORNTON — From possible layoffs at the town dump to hours of operation at the Town Clerk/ Tax Collectors Office, the candidates on Tuesday’s election ballot fielded some tough questions last night at a traditional candidate’s night forum. There are two open slots on the three-member Board of Selectmen and incumbent Andrew Livernois and Karen Ober are the candidates for the one-year seat left vacant when Ober’s husband Steve resigned for job-related reasons. The other contested Selectmen position is for a regular three-year term and incumbent Guy Giunta and Budget Committee member Tim Lang are squared off in that race.

Coast Guard reopens part of swollen Mississippi River

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Children played in front yards and neighbors chatted under a cloudless sky Friday in a south Memphis neighborhood, yards away from the rising water of the Nonconnah Creek. The unforgiving creek has soaked Johnny Harris’ house as the rest of Memphis awaits flood waters from the Mississippi River. Harris estimated he had more than 3 feet of water in his small, rented house on a low-lying section of Hazelwood Street. “It’s like an ocean,” he said. Meanwhile, the Coast Guard closed a stretch of the swollen Mississippi to barge traffic upstream Friday, then reopened it later in the day. Any prolonged closure could cause a backup along the mighty river. Farther south in Memphis went door to door, warning thousands of people to leave before they get swamped. Emergency workers in Memphis handed out bright yellow fliers in see RIVER page 13

Al-Qaida acknowledges bin Laden’s death, vows revenge CAIRO (AP) — Al-Qaida vowed to keep fighting the United States and avenge the death of Osama bin Laden, which it acknowledged for the first time Friday in an Internet statement apparently designed to convince followers that it will remain vigorous and intact even after its founder’s demise. Al-Qaida’s plots are usually large-scale and involve planning over months or even years. But Western intelligence officials say they are seeing increased chatter about

cheap, small-scale attacks — perhaps by individuals or small extremist groups inspired to take revenge for the killing. “USA, you will pay!” chanted more than 100 participants in a pro-bin Laden protest outside the U.S. Embassy in London on Friday. A Western intelligence official said no concrete threat has emerged so far that authorities considered credible. “There have been mentions of shootings, bombings and random violence, though it is not surprising,

given bin Laden’s death,” the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. Authorities in the U.S. and Europe chose not to elevate threat levels. Interpol has asked law enforcement agencies in 188 countries to be on alert for retaliatory attacks. Communities have been warned to report anything suspicious. Embassies and some American businesses have added new security measures. Despite the Internet chatter, reaction in see AL-QAIDA page 4

FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) — Brimming with pride, President Barack Obama on Friday met and honored the U.S. commandos he sent after terror mastermind Osama bin Laden, saluting them on behalf of America and the world and capping an extraordinary week for the country. “Job well done,” the president declared. Obama addressed roughly 2,000 troops after meeting privately with the full assault team — Army helicopter pilots and Navy SEAL commandos — who executed the dangerous raid on bin Laden’s com-

pound and killed the al-Qaida leader in Pakistan early Monday. Their identities are kept secret. Speaking to a sweltering hangar full of cheering soldiers, Obama said: “The terrorist leader that struck our nation on 9/11 will never threaten America again.” Al-Qaida will be defeated, he promised from this Army post, whose troops have sustained heavy losses in an Afghanistan war that has grown on his watch. Fresh warnings emerged, though, underscoring Obama’s caution that the fight

against terrorists still rages. The Afghan Taliban said the death of bin Laden would only boost morale of insurgents battling the U.S. and its NATO allies. Al-Qaida itself vowed revenge, confirming bin Laden’s death for the first time but saying that Americans’ “happiness will turn to sadness.” Soldiers at Fort Campbell were careful not to celebrate bin Laden’s death, voicing instead a sense of professional pride for the work of the commandos. see OBAMA page 13

ISLAMABAD (AP) — Pakistan’s military paints a different picture than the United States of Osama bin Laden’s final days: far from the terror mastermind still trying to strike America, he’s seen as an aging terrorist hiding in barren rooms, short of money and struggling to maintain his grip on al-Qaida. But the CIA is saying he was in touch with key members of al-Qaida, play-

ing a strong role in planning and directing attacks by al-Qaida and its affiliates in Yemen and Somalia, senior U.S. officials said Friday, citing documents found during the Monday morning raid in which bin Laden was killed. Three of bin Laden’s wives were living with him in the compound and are being interrogated by Pakistani authorities, who took them into custody after Monday’s

raid, along with 13 children, eight of them bin Laden’s. Their accounts could help shed light on the U.S. military operation that killed the al-Qaida leader and reveal how he was able to avoid capture for nearly 10 years. One of the wives, identified as Yemeniborn Amal Ahmed Abdullfattah, told interrogators she had been staying in bin see PAKISTAN page 5

Lake Champlain flooding destroys 500 homes in Vermont homes MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Already at its highest level ever, Lake Champlain surpassed flood stage by 3 feet Friday, leaving hundreds of homes destroyed or damaged in a slowly unfolding catastrophe on island communities and the New York and Vermont sides of the 120-mile-long lake. Teams from the Federal Emergency Management Agency will be in Vermont on Tuesday to begin assessing damage, said spokesman Dennis Pinkham. Authorities said it could be weeks before floodwaters, which took weeks to hit current levels, recede. “I had a guy from the state tell me that this was the slowest disaster he’s ever seen,” Clinton County Emergency Services Director Eric Day told the Press-Republican newspaper of Plattsburgh, N.Y., where about 100 residents of an apartment complex evacuated Friday. The two major east-west roads that link the Vermont island county of Grand Isle to the mainland remained open but were water-covered, according to Gov. Peter Shumlin, who wouldn’t rule out mandatory evacuations but said they aren’t necessary yet.

Shumlin toured the flooded area by helicopter this week and then declared the area a disaster, which allowed him to call up help from the Vermont National Guard. Soldiers have filled about 67,000 sandbags and provided high-water vehicles to help with recovery efforts. Maj. Gen. Michael Dubie, commander of the Vermont National Guard, said that 136 soldiers are available on four hours’ notice if need be, and that another 350 could be made available on 24 hours’ notice if the state requests it. Four to eight FEMA representatives, joined by Vermont Emergency Management officials, will tour the hardest-hit areas to do a preliminary assessment, Shumlin said. Typically, spring rains and snowmelt in Vermont pose a threat for river flooding. This year, it’s the lake, fed by rivers and tributaries in the Adirondacks of New York state and the Green Mountains of Vermont. The lake, which separates upstate New York from

Lynch orders review of state psychiatric hospital policies CONCORD (AP) — Gov. John Lynch has ordered a review of the New Hampshire psychiatric hospital’s policies after a patient walked away for a third time in less than a year. Forty-eight-year-old Lawrence Eldridge was involuntarily committed to the hospital last year after he was deemed incompetent to stand trial on charges he held his ex-wife and children hostage. He hasn’t

been seen since April 30. Lynch has directed the Department of Health and Human Services and the Attorney General’s office to review the circumstances under which patients are transferred from the state’s secure psychiatric unit to the hospital, the granting of leave and whether victims should be notified if a patient walks away or escapes.

Vermont and stretches into Canada, reached its highest level ever last week and has continued to rise. At 2 p.m. Friday, the level of the water at Burlington, Vermont’s largest city, was 103.22 feet above sea level, down from 103.26 at 12:30 p.m. Flood stage is 100 feet.

AL-QAIDA from page 2 the Islamic world to bin Laden’s death has been relatively muted compared with the rage that he long inspired, raising questions about his relevance in the Middle East — a region that has been changed by a wave of pro-democracy uprisings. The al-Qaida statement, entitled “You lived as a good man, you died as a martyr,” did not name a successor to bin Laden. His deputy, Ayman al-Zawahri, is now the most prominent figure in the group and a likely contender to take his place. “The blood of the holy warrior sheik, Osama bin Laden, God bless him, is too precious to us and to all Muslims to go in vain,” the statement said. “We will remain, God willing, a curse chasing the Americans and their agents, following them outside and inside their countries.” “Soon, God willing, their happiness will turn to sadness,” it said, “their blood will be mingled with their tears.” Although the statement’s authenticity could not be independently confirmed, it was considered to be authentic. It was posted on militant websites Friday by the al-Fajr Center, al-Qaida’s online media distribution network, and the writing style was typical for al-Qaida. The statement was issued in the name of the organization’s General Command and dated Tuesday, the day after bin Laden’s death.

PAKISTAN from page 2 Laden’s hideout since 2006 and never left the upper floors of the large but sparsely furnished building, said a Pakistani intelligence official, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with the agency’s policy. The official did not indicate whether bin Laden was with her the whole time, a period in which the Pakistani military says the al-Qaida chief’s influence and financial status eroded. Disputes over money between bin Laden and his No. 2, Ayman al-Zawahri, led the group to split into two factions five or six years ago, with the larger faction controlled by al-Zawahri, according to two senior Pakistani military officials. Bin Laden was “cash strapped” in his final days, they said. The officers spoke to a small group of Pakistani reporters late Thursday, and their comments were confirmed for The Associated Press by another top military official, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issues. The officer didn’t provide details or say how his agency knew about bin Laden’s financial situation or the split with his deputy. The image coming out of Washington based on information seized from bin Laden’s compound was far different. It shows that bin Laden was a lot more involved in directing al-Qaida personnel and operations than sometimes thought over the last decade, officials said. And it suggests bin Laden was “giving strategic direction” to al-Qaida affiliates in Somalia and Yemen, one defense official said. U.S. counterterrorism officials have long debated how big a role bin Laden and core al-Qaida leaders were play-

ing in the attacks launched by affiliated terror groups, particularly al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, which is based in Yemen, and al-Shabab in Somalia. Bin Laden’s first priority, an official said, was his own security. But the data shows that he was far more active in providing guidance and telling affiliated groups in Yemen and Somalia what they should

Youth Assistance Program appropriation will again come before Sanbornton voters on Wednesday night SANBORNTON — Voters will get a new chance to spend $42,848 on the Youth Assistance Program after 25 voters successfully petitioned to placed an appropriation on this year’s Town Meeting warrant. The meeting will be held Wednesday night at the elementary school. Last year, a similar appropriation failed by 10 votes after some heated discussion lead by a resident who identified herself as Ann Sherry, who said Sanbornton youths are already adequately served by the school district’s guidance team, the school resource officer and what was then known as the Belknap County Restorative Justice Program. Supporters, including Tilton Police Chief Robert Cormier and Merrimack County Sheriff and former Northfield Police Chief Scott Hilliard support the program because it centers on Winnisquam youth and its staff is accessible and within walking distance of the Winnisquam Regional High and Middle Schools. As of last year, Sanbornton had nearly 50 youths

who participated in the program, however after the town’s voters chose not to join Tilton and Northfield in contributing toward the cost of the program, the YAP Board reluctantly voted not to accept any more Sanbornton youths, although it said it would continue to serve those who were already involved. According to program Director Martha Douglass, the YAP has instituted a new bullying program for high- and middle-school children that pays special attention to cyber-bullying. The program works as a diversion program for youths who commit “entrylevel” crimes such as alcohol and tobacco violations, trespassing, vandalism and fighting. It also addresses bullying and truancy issues. It has been supported by voters in both Northfield and Tilton and, until last year, by Sanbornton voters as well. The warrant article ask for $42,848 and is not supported by either the Board of selectmen or the Budget Committee. — Gail Ober

Alexander Cockburn

A volcano of lies Barack Obama, who pledged to restore ethical honor to the White House after the Bush years, is now burying himself under an active volcano of lies, mostly but not exclusively concerning the assassination of Osama bin Laden. There was scarcely a sentence in the president’s Sunday night address or in the subsequent briefing by John Brennan, his chief counterterrorism coordinator, that has not been subsequently retracted by CIA director Leon Panetta, White House press spokesman Jay Carney or by various documentary records. The White House photograph of Obama, Clinton and top security advisers supposedly watching realtime footage of the Navy SEALs’ onslaught on the Abbottabad compound, their killing of two additional men and a woman (excuse for the latter killing: the standard “caught in crossfire”) and liquidation of OBL himself turns out to have been a phony. OB and friends could have been watching basketball replays. Panetta has admitted the real-time video link stopped working before the SEALs got into the compound. Panetta also admits bin Laden was not armed, and that he did not hide behind his young wife’s skirt. He conceded that under military rules of engagement, bin Laden should have been taken prisoner, but then added vaguely that he showed some unspecified form of resistance. He probably reached for his walking stick, since he has been ailing from kidney and liver problems. As any black or brown resident in, say, the purview of the Ramparts Division of the LAPD knows full well, reaching for a walking stick or even holding a cellphone can be a death warrant, particularly in front of a score of heavily armed and homicidal SEALs, no doubt amped up on amphetamine. The White House claims that issues of delicacy prohibit the release of photographs of Obama’s bullet-riddled face and required that after an alleged match with a relative’s DNA, he be given a swift but formal sea burial in a weighted body bag dropped from the aircraft carrier Carl Vinson into the north Arabian Sea, presumably awaiting retrieval by salvagers with a fix on the Vinson’s position at the time of burial. Maybe the Navy SEAL photographer forgot to take his lens cap off. Obama’s claims of ethical sensitivity certainly ring hollow. He’s battling the wimp factor, and “Lo! The head of Osama” would be a nifty prop. There was lengthy display back in Bush time of the mutilated bodies of Saddam’s sons Uday and Qusay, killed by U.S. special forces in 2003, plus filming of Saddam’s own execution by hanging.

Further back, when DNA matches were unknown, U.S. special forces verified Che Guevara’s execution by permitting many photographs immediately post-mortem. They also cut off Guevara’s hands, for subsequent verification by the CIA. We’re not talking Miss Manners here. The official “backstory” released Sunday night by Obama is that U.S. intelligence learned of the Abbottabad compound only last August and spent the following months watching the place, following Osama’s trusted couriers and concluding that it was highly likely, though not certain, that Osama was there. This is bunk. The three-story house has been a well-known feature of Abbottabad. Shaukat Qadir, a well-connected Pakistan army officer, reports to CounterPunch from Pakistan: “For the record, this house has been under ISI surveillance while it was under construction. It was first raided in 2003, and the ISI just missed capturing alLibi (he was later captured by the ISI close to Mardan in K-P Province). It has been raided on numerous occasions since.” In fact, specific knowledge by U.S. intelligence of the compound and its likely possible prime denizen goes back to 2005. This has been established by Israel Shamir, also writing for CounterPunch. Shamir compares certain passages in the WikiLeaks documents on Guantanamo against those recently published by The New York Times and the Guardian. He reports these newspapers were working from the WikiLeaks files supplied to them (price unknown) by WikiLeaks’ former German employee, Daniel Domscheit-Berg, “who went AWOL after this appropriation.” Shamir says Domscheit-Berg made a deal with the Guardian, which subsequently made a co-publication arrangement with The New York Times. “Both papers published the cables after redacting them, or should we say ‘censoring’ — removing everything the secret services demanded (they) remove.” When Julian Assange learned that the Guardian and The New York Times planned to publish the Guantanamo files, his WikiLeaks team also prepared the files and began to upload. So did the competitors, possessing the DomscheitBerg appropriated copy. The most important redactions by the Guardian and The New York Times, Shamir writes, “were directly dictated by the US intelligence services. The name of Nashwan Abd Al Razzaq Abd Al Baqi, or by another name, Abdul Hadi al-Iraqi or by his number IZ-10026 was edited away from the file of Abu al-Libi (US9LY010017DP) and elsewhere.” This is significant because alIraqi was in close contact with alLibi, who had been designated by see next page

This, obviously, is a political decision since all of the DES research and data as interpreted by Mr. Doyon and Mr. Weber (both of the DES) supported the lower water level. The decision made it clear that NHDES really doesn’t care at all about the health of these lakes and only cares about the false and exaggerated claims of a few that the 539.5 level impacted their recreation. Tom Burack, the DES commission signed off on this decision. Jim Gallegher, supervisor of the Dam Bureau made the call on the water level. We must ask if this man is competent? He did not compromise, he went with the high water level. We must ask if this commission truly has the best interest of our environment at heart? Burack is “upset” about water quality programs being cut, but this decision makes it quite obvious that he doesn’t care one bit about water quality. This is not, as one party in your article said, “something we can all live with” and this is most certainly not “fair and just” as another said. It was a despicable sham that we all went through and those with the connections won. Sad indeed, for the lakes and surrounding wetlands, as they lose the most. One day, when we are all no longer here, the lakes will still exist. Will they support what we do now recreationally? I doubt it. Choices such as the one just made are something our ancestors and the wildlife, or lack

thereof, will pay for. How sad indeed. At the rate we are going, we will be faced with higher phosphorous levels and resulting pollution from water continually being high during rain events and the constancy of wakes from the big boats these people will gleefully use with higher water. The people who “won” (no, they didn’t really as the lakes have lost big time) will probably be the first ones to whine about water quality and how they can’t swim and their property values are down. Hello? This is what you will have in a very short time. I am so disgusted right now as these people with their connections just pulled strings and had their way to the detriment of others. So, I shall be documenting and continuing to promote a healthy lower water and I will be sending my documentations to the appropriate parties. Damage will surely occur and it is so so sad. So, I ask those who selfishly supported this poor decision, when you drive by with that big wake and see my property eroding more and more, will you feel a little bad about what you did? Perhaps you’ll buy me a few sand bags as a consolation prize? I included, for reference, a photo of my dock and boats after a particularly heavy rainfall when water levels were at 540. Thanks a lot, I’m really looking forward to this. Linda Heminway Lake Winona New Hampton

LETTERS We’re very proud of both groups of U.S. ‘Military Mothers’

Obama has the most influence over what you pay at gas pump

To the editor, This Sunday, moms across the country will be treated to breakfast in bed, homemade cards, bouquets of flowers and fancy dinners in restaurants. But for those who have sons and daughters fighting wars overseas, Mother’s Day won’t be all roses. The term “Military Mothers” describes two distinct groups of women. On the one hand, it describes mothers whose sons and daughters are members of the military. On the other, it describes mothers who are themselves members of the military. Though many military mothers have grown used to their children’s absences on Mother’s Day and other special occasions, it doesn’t make those times any easier especially for moms whose sons and daughters are in the line of fire in Iraq or Afghanistan. Mothers whose children are in the military and deployed to military bases around the world or serving in a war zone far from home, live with

daily fear and worry for the lives of those to whom they gave birth, and nurtured into the fine young men and women they are. They worry that those children may return home with missing limbs or with PTSD, and may not be the same person who deployed, or that they may return in a flagdraped casket. And mothers, who must leave their children behind to go to a war zone far from home, live with daily fear for their own lives because they worry about the possibility that their children may have to grow up without a mother. And they worry about the impact their absence will have on little psyches, and whether that impact will be lasting. We assure you, both groups are heroes. And we’d like to wish them, and all the other mothers out there, a Happy Mother’s Day! Karen Thurston Blue Star Mothers of NH Gilford

from preceding page Osama in 2003 as his trusted official courier, therefore aware of Osama’s whereabouts at all times. In the end, at separate times, the U.S. captured both al-Libi and al-Iraqi, had them both tortured and thus became aware of alLibi’s courier duties and hence the possibility that Osama was in Abbottabad. Comparison of the redacted version of the Guardian and in the uncut version of WikiLeaks shows to what extent all the traces of al-Iraqi, the likely informer under torture, were removed at the behest of U.S. intelligence. It was not connected to “caring about informers,” for al-Libi was understood at the time to have committed suicide in a Libyan jail just before the arrival of the U.S. ambassador in Tripoli. The file of al-Iraqi is missing in all databases; he was captured in 2005 and kept in various secret prisons, until transferred to Guantanamo, where he remains detained. So the trail to Abbottabad was known to the U.S. intelligence services at least since 2005, when al-Iraqi was captured. “Careful reading of the file,” Shamir writes, “shows that al-Libi was connected with al-Iraqi since October 2002. In 2003, Osama stated al-Libi would be the official messenger between OBL and others in Pakistan. In mid-2003, al-Libi moved his family to Abbottabad, Pakistan and worked between Abbottabad and Peshawar. He maintained contact with al-Iraqi.” We can conclude, from this narrative, that when the unredacted WikiLeaks files surfaced, U.S. intelligence concluded that Osama’s associates would soon figure out that the Americans had made the appropriate connections and conjectures and urged him to move on with all due haste. So Obama decided to send in the SEALs. From this active volcano of lies, we can safely assume that Obama’s reelection campaign has been well and truly launched. Liftoff began on April

27 with the White House’s release of the long birth certificate. Obama seems to have problems with timely provision of convincing documentation about arrivals (his own) and departures (bin Laden’s). Had it not been for cloud cover over Abbottabad, the raid on Osama’s compound could have come on Friday, April 29, the same day as the royal wedding. Saturday, April 30 was reserved for the attempted assassination of Col. Gadhafi, with the dropping of precision-guided bombs on the house of his son Saif, who died along with three grandchildren. Saif was in the Gadhafi family compound on April 15, 1986 when bombs ordered up by Ronald Reagan were dropped from F-111s, killing his 15-month old sister, adopted by Gadhafi 11 months earlier. “Decapitation” — going for the enemy’s top guy — is now standard NATO strategy. Would Obama have been briefed on the plan or have signed off on a program of targeted assassination of Gadhafi? It seems highly likely. But Gadhafi survived. So Obama only had one bloodied feather in his cap when he gave one of the most morally repellent speeches I have ever heard delivered from the White House. Bush at least had a crude brio when he vaunted America’s prowess. Obama’s “we nailed him” paragraphs of mendacity concluded with a Dickensian “Tonight, we are once again reminded that America can do whatever we set our mind to. That is the story of our history.” Alas, the actual story of “our history” is an unrelenting ability to lie about everything, while simultaneously claiming America’s superior moral worth.

To the editor, Gasoline hit $5 a gallon in California and is close to $4 in N.H. and it’s going higher. The usual suspects, big oil and speculators are to be rounded up and publicly flogged in hopes of keeping voter unhappiness pointed in their direction and not toward Washington. Oil price gauging will be prosecuted is all political cover. There has never been anyone or any company convicted of oil price gauging despite countless political witch hunts. Why? Because there is none to prove. As much as you and I may hate speculators they provide much needed service. Indeed, they do drive up prices. They also support them when any asset falls rapidly in price. When the stock market crashes for whatever reason on any day, who supports prices from falling even further? Speculators. They are a double edged sword and do as much good as harm. Civil unrest in the Middle East is heightening tensions and making oil more valuable on purely FEAR which speculators thrive on. America has little control of the events in other countries. We surely cannot stop speculators from speculating; many of whom will lose fortunes as well as make them. What we CAN CONTROL that has a great deal of impact on what oil costs and gasoline costs is the value of our own currency. Since election Obama has turned the dollar into toilet trash printing green-


backs 24/7 in good part to finance the socialist agenda. The dollar sits now just above it’s all time lows in history and destined to go lower. The price of gas is likely to DROP a buck a gallon (yes., a buck a gallon if not more) the day that Barack Obama announces the dollar printing presses have stopped and he endorses policies that produce a strong dollar, including raising interest rates. The ONE PERSON in the United States who has the most influence on what YOU PAY for gas at the pump every week is not big oil or even speculators. It is the president of the United States through his policies. A hefty 80-percent of all commodities in the world trade in dollars and that includes oil. When the value of the dollar drops, people selling oil want more of them to maintain their buying power. The price you pay at the pump is tied directly to the dollar’s value. Every new dollar printed makes every other in existence worth less and every commodity traded in dollars more expensive. Just about every commodity including corn, silver, gold, wheat and cotton are all trading near or above their all time highs in history and will cause the price of every thing you buy to be come more expensive. Lowering currency values goes hand in hand with lower living standards. Don’t like the price of gas? Call Obama. Tony Boutin Gilford

Lake safety is just one of the reasons to be opposed to SB-27 To the editor, In response to the letter from Bob Flannery, political director of SBONH, regarding speed and safety on Lake Winnipesaukee, I wanted to note that few of the people who showed up in Concord to testify against SB-27 are retired people. I take exception to his statement that “all these people have nothing but time on their hands,” and his earlier statement after the Senate hearing on SB-27 that those testifying against SB 27 were “a bunch of old fossils with nothing better to do.” I, for example, work full-time, as does my husband and daughter, and we are not “old.” Along with many other N.H. people, all three of us took the time to come to Concord to be heard on this issue. Business people as well came to testify how SB-27 is bad for the Lakes Region tourism and economy. A man who delivers propane to

the islands took the time to testify against SB-27. A representative from the Loon Preservation Society testified that SB-27 endangers fledgling loon chicks. Camp directors took the time to explain that with the 45/30 MPH law more and more campers are venturing out and enjoying the lake. I suspect that of the 73 out of 80 people who signed in against SB-27 last month, most were not retired — they wanted their voice to be heard. Safety is just one of the issues as to why to oppose SB-27. As noted above, other reasons include economics, tourism, preservation of the lake’s natural resources, as well as maintaining a peaceful and meaningful lake experience for all. Add these reasons to the fact that the current 45/30 law is working well according to most N.H. people, and that says it all. Gail Adams Tuftonboro

In 9 to 12 months we could be looking at inflation rate of 15% To the editor, Year over year CPI growth has increased 92-percent in three months. In November of 2010, the Bureau of Labor and Statistics (BLS)’s consumer price index (CPI) grew by 1.1-percent over November of 2009. In February of 2011, the BLS’s CPI grew by 2.11-percent over February of 2010, above the Fed’s informal inflation target of 1.5 to 2-percent. An increase in year-over-year CPI growth from 1.1-percent in November of last year to 2.11-percent in February of this year means that the CPI’s

growth rate increased by approximately 92-percent over a period of just three months. Imagine if the yearover-year CPI growth rate continues to increase by 92-percent every three months. In 9 to 12 months from now we could be looking at a price inflation rate of over 15-percent. Even if the BLS manages to artificially hold the CPI down around 5 or 6-percent, the real rate of price inflation will still rise into the double-digits within the next year. Marc Abear Meredith

As a veteran, I know we’re stronger when we work together.

It’s time for our leaders to put political agendas aside. — Bill Wright

Laconia, U.S. Marine Corps (Ret.)

Putting middle class families ahead of political agendas.

Some leaders in the New Hampshire legislature are putting their own political agendas ahead of middle class families. Times are already tough for Granite Staters, and we can’t let the narrow political interests of a few Concord politicians make them any tougher.

Standing together to strengthen the middle class.

We need our leaders to work together and put middle class families ahead of politics. Together, we can improve our schools, sustain the vital services that help our community’s most vulnerable, and protect the rights of middle class workers— if we don’t let partisan political agendas stand in the way.

We need our leaders to oppose HB 474 and

LETTERS People who haven’t voted in 4 years are purged from checklist To the editor, This letter is written to inform Moultonborough registered voters about the 2011 New Hampshire State Purge. The Supervisors of the Checklist in each city and town in New Hampshire are required by state mandate to conduct a purge of the voter checklist. The Supervisors of the Checklist for Moultonborough have already begun the purge process. New Hampshire RSA 654:39 requires that the checklist be verified every 10 years, in the year ending with a number 1, by striking from the checklist the names of all persons who have not voted in any election in the last four years. With the creation of the statewide voter registration database called “ElectioNet” in 2006, supervisors now have access to this type of election history data. There are 408 Moultonbor-

ough voters affected by the 2011 purge. These same people will not be removed from the resident list as that is different than the checklist and not under the purview of RSA 654:39. As required, we have sent out notification letters to the voters whose election history meets the New Hampshire State purge criteria. We are holding a public session on June 1, 2011 from 10 to 11 a.m. at Town Hall to remove those names from the checklist and allow any voter impacted by this RSA to re-register. After that session, any resident who wants to re-register can do so at the Town Clerk’s Office or on any upcoming Election Day.

We should have taken him up to WTC height & tossed him out To the editor, Anyone who believes that the world is safer now that the world’s best known terrorist is dead and buried needs to stay under that rock where they are hiding. Just because he was the best known terrorist does not mean he was the biggest, because now that he is gone, there will be a fight under him to see who will now take over his spot. Say that kind of sounds like the mafia doesn’t it? And, anyone who sympathizes with the statement that he was killed and wasn’t armed, please tell me how many of the thousands killed in the towers were armed? Although he was carted

off for a burial at sea, they should have just dug a hole and laid him in it face down, since his religion says he has to be buried the same day as his death. He should have been given the same amount of respect that he gave those in the towers. NONE! The ideal way to rid the world of this piece of scum, would have been to capture him alive and taken him up to the same height as the World Trade Center, opened the door and tossed him out. I bet he would have cried for his life. This is by no means a live and let live world. It never has been, and it never will be. Bev Buker Gilford

A great deal and a 5% Friends of BIBA discount on top of that To the editor, Most people think BIGGER is BETTER, well I am writing to disagree with that way of thinking. I am so happy to live in the Lakes Region and usually try to shop the local businesses. As a “Friends of BIBA” card holder, which I purchased for $10 from a BIBA member, I received a 5-percent discount on an appliance. First I went to the “Big Box” store and shopped their prices then went to Major Brands in Laconia and was pleasantly

surprised to find their prices not only competitive but lower and then they also gave me the 5-percent discount for being a BIBA cardholder. Please let your readers know of my experience and that I am not any way affiliated with Baron’s Major Brands but am so happy to give them my business! Tom O’Shea was my salesperson and he was very helpful and knowledgeable. Linda Knott Laconia

Stanley Cup finals. Boston has won seven of eight games and is aiming for its first Stanley Cup title since 1972. Tampa Bay won it all in 2004. The Bruins began rolling after losing the first two games of their first-round series at home to Montreal. They won the next three games, lost Game 6, and advanced with an overtime win in Boston in Game 7. Their offense took off against the Flyers. The Bruins won the opener in Philadelphia 7-3, then took the second game 3-2 in overtime before returning home for a 5-1 win on Wednesday night. “I really look at Game 1 as an opportunity that was lost for us to get into the series,” Philadelphia coach Peter Laviolette said. Now, with Vezina Trophy finalist Tim Thomas performing brilliantly, they Bruins have reached the round that eluded them last year. But nine of the 20 players who suited up for them on Friday, including Thomas, didn’t play in the four losses to Philadelphia a year ago. Boychuk’s game-winner was his second goal of the playoffs. The defenseman got the puck after a faceoff in the left circle and quickly fired a hard shot to the near side that Sergei Bobrovsky couldn’t grab with his glove.

BOSTON (AP) — Trevor Plouffe welcomed himself back to the majors with a big hit. Plouffe hit his first homer of the season and Scott Baker pitched eight strong innings for the Minnesota Twins, who capitalized on several Boston blunders in a 9-2 win over the Red Sox on Friday night. The Twins have won three straight for just the second time this season. Plouffe, recalled this week from Triple-A Rochester, hit a knuckleball from Tim Wakefield over the Green Monster in the first inning, sparking one of Minnesota’s best offensive performances of the season. “During BP he was fired up and ready to go,” manager Ron Gardenhire said. “He was excited to be out there. It wasn’t a nervous excitement.

He was fired up to be back in the big leagues and he went out and played like it.” It was the third major league homer for Plouffe, who hit two during callups late last summer. “There’s really no way to prepare for a guy like Tim,” Plouffe said. “That’s not really what I was trying to do, to be honest with you, with two strikes against him. He got a pitch up and there was a little jet stream going out there, so it was nice.” The Twins finished with 12 hits and got a sharp performance from Baker (2-2), who allowed seven hits, struck out eight and walked one. Minnesota scored twice on balks and took advantage of a pair of errors by the Red Sox, who have allowed 21 runs in their last two games.

HERO from page one “Unsung Hero” award, given out each year since 2002 to a member of the community who, said Bud Martin, “works quietly behind the scenes to bring meaningful and positive change in the lives of children, youths and families in Belknap County, never expecting to be thanked or recognized for their efforts.” Sommers, a Laconia resident, spent his career as a special education teacher and administrator, working in many local districts including Laconia and Winnisquam Regional. He presently teaches at the Lakes Region Community College and New Hampshire Technical College. In addition, he volunteers an hour each day at the Boys & Girls Club in Lakeport. Martin said testimonials in support of Sommers’s nomination described him as hard-working, unassuming,

kind, eager to help organizations or friends, enthusiastic and empathetic and in possession of an excellent sense of humor. He was given a piece of engraved glass and the foundation will donate $1,000 in his name to the charity of his choosing. “I couldn’t think of a better community to be in than Laconia,” Sommers said after receiving the award, which he said was an honor. Interviewed after the ceremony, he said he enjoyed the opportunity to volunteer with children and help them with homework. “The greatest satisfaction is to work with the students and be part of a community.” Despite the fashion tip, Sommers said the award came as a surprise. “I was amazed that it was me because so many others that give their time and talents.

BOSTON (AP) — Milan Lucic scored twice, Johnny Boychuk got the go-ahead goal, and the Boston Bruins stopped any chance of another historic comeback by the Philadelphia Flyers with a 5-1 win Friday night that completed a sweep of the Eastern Conference semifinal series. In this round last year against Philadelphia, the Bruins became just the third NHL team to lose a series after winning the first three games. Boston even held a 3-0 lead at home in Game 7 before the Flyers rallied again for a 4-3 victory. “I think we learned a lot from last year, that experience, and I think it made us a more determined hockey club,” Lucic said. “We can definitely put everything behind us with what happened last year. So it’s a real good feeling.” Kris Versteeg lifted Philadelphia into a 1-1 tie on Friday at 13:22 of the second period after Lucic scored at 12:02 of the first. Boychuk put Boston ahead at 2:42 of the third, Lucic connected again at 15:03, and Brad Marchand and Daniel Paille added empty-net goals. The Bruins are in the conference finals for the first time since 1992 and will have home-ice advantage against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Philadelphia was swept 4-0 for the first time since losing to Detroit in the 1997

City has hired consultant to study sand migration at Weirs Beach LACONIA — The city has commissioned the Woods Hole Group of Falmouth, Mass. to undertake a study of sand migration at Weirs Beach as the first step toward restoring the beach to an approximation of its original expanse. The $30,000 contract will be funded by the Weirs Parking Fund. The fund, which is dedicated to improvements at The Weirs, consists of all proceeds from the parking meters in excess of $25,000 and has a current balance of about $68,000. Luke Powell, assistant director of public works, and Kevin Dunleavy, director of Parks and Recreation, described the Woods Hole Group as “by far the most quaified firm” of the five that responded to the request for proposals. The company was founded in 1986 by Dr. David G. Aubrey, a senior scientist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution who sought

to apply his knowledge of coastal and marine processes to environmental problems. The firm has undertaken a variety of projects, including environmental assessment, dune restoration, beach nourishment, depth measurement, current profiling and estuary enhancement on several continents. Its personnel has tracked currents in the Makassar Strait in Indonesia, measured depth in the Gulf of Mexico, assessed environmental risks in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain and worked in the Black, Caspian and Yellow Seas. Claiming beaches among its specialties, the company notes “Beaches move. All the time. You can count on it” on its website and offers to develop “long-term, environmentally sustainable solutions.” Weirs Beach is not a natural beach, see next page

from preceding page chosen to receive it.” Dick Christopher, who has known Sommers for 15 years, nominated him. “I know what he does, the kind of things he does,” when asked why he thought Sommers was deserving. His letter refers to Sommers’s education career as well as the volume of nonpaid work he’s performed. Christopher wrote to the selection committee: “For the past several years he has been involved with assisting children with homework at the Boys & Girls Club of the Lakes Region. He is also involved with the Belknap County Tutorial Education Program as a one-on-one volunteer tutor teaching ESOL, English for Speakers of Other Languages, to adults who arrive here from foreign countries. For many years he was the guidance counselor for the Laconia Adult Education Program and also taught Social Studies in the Laconia Academy Diploma Program. He has also been heavily involved for years as a volunteer with Special Olympics New Hampshire and freely gives of his time to this organization. He is also a member of the Lakes Region United Way Advisory

Board and in that capacity assists in directing finances to worthy agencies.” Attending the ceremony were two speech pathologist professionals from Hopkinton, with whom Sommers worked several years ago. “We still bring his name up frequently, he left an impact on that school,” said Chris Dinan, who recalled how Sommers was known for bringing them matzoh ball soup, playing music from the 1950s and his even-keeled nature. “He is a quiet, calming force. When things get exciting, he can bring it back down. And the kids flocked to him,” she said. Howard Chase of Laconia said was sitting on his porch when he met Sommers, who happened to be in the neighborhood visiting a friend and walked up to introduce himself. That was more than 40 years ago and their friendship has continued. Chase, who uses a wheelchair, said Sommers helps him with mobility issues and makes regular, unannounced visits, usually bringing something tasty. “Warren’s been nice to me, he still brings me food,” Chase continued. Referring to the award, he said, “I think he deserves it.”

PAY TO THROW from page one is recycled, the less the cost of disposal. “Pay-As-You-Throw” is intended to increase recycling by requiring residents to place the trash they do not recycle in a marked plastic bag — in Concord the bags are purple and called “Barney Bags” — purchased at local retail outlets. The trash, together with recyclable materials, is collected at the curbside once a week. Trash not placed in a “Barney Bag” is not picked up. Bedard suggests following the model of Concord by offering two bags for sale, a 15-gallon bag for $1 and a 30-gallon bag for $2. Bedard estimates the annual savings based on the extent to which the waste stream is reduced by increased recycling. For example, if 20-percent of trash is recycled, the cost of collection falls by $67,038,from $335,192 to $268,153, of transportation by $44,240, from $221,200 to $176,960, and of incineration by $183,000, from $915,000 to $732,000, for total savings of $294,278. In addition, the city would collect revenue from the sale of the bags. The bags cost 14 cents and 25 cents respectively, but would sell for $1 and $2, with the city realizing the difference. Bedard calculates that if the waste stream was reduced by 20-percent, the remaining tonnage of bagged trash collected would represent from preceding page but was built between 1950 and 1960 with sand dredged from the nearby channel and trucked from Gilford. The beach was built in three stages, the northern section first then the southern section and finally the middle section between, which was bounded by two jetties fashioned of iron rails, railroad ties, rocks and sandbags. A third jetty was built along the channel. But, by 1958 erosion had already taken its toll, washing away some 2,000 cubic yards of sand. Although the sand was restored, there has been no reclamation since. Before the jetties were removed in the 1970s, erosion had shaped a scalloped shoreline. As erosion has continued to gnaw away at the northernmost reaches of the beach, sand has washed toward the channel to form the crescent beach there today.

bags with an annual aggregate value of $728,000. The final, and perhaps most controversial, component of the program would be to adjust the fees at the transfer station. Those who use the transfer station are currently charged between $5 and $30 a ton based on the amount they deliver. But, the cost to the city of disposing of trash brought to the transfer station is $82.60 a ton, which represents a subsidy of between $77.60 and $52.60 a ton. Eliminating the subsidy would provide an incentive for increased recycling as well as generate annual revenue of $370,304. The total annual savings would amount to $1, 392,582. Less the cost of collecting the recyclable materials at the current rate of $120,000 a year, the annual net savings would be $1,272,582. As a rule of thumb, 60-percent of household waste can be recycled. As the amount of recycling grows and the volume of trash shrinks, revenues from the sale of bags and the transfer station diminish. But. they are more than offset by reductions in the cost of

collecting, transporting and disposing of the remaining trash. Furthermore, these estimates do not include proceeds from the sale of recyclable materials, which at a conservative estimate are expected to be at least $30 a ton once the single-stream recycling facility of the Concord Regional Solid Waste Cooperative begins operating. The proposal is bound to arouse controversy. Those opposed to PAYT claim that charging a fee for refuse collection in addition to property taxes is unjust. Supporters of the program counter that recycling significantly reduces solid waste costs for the entire community. PAYT, they insist, not only encourages recycling but also rewards it by ensuring that households and businesses pay in proportion to the solid waste they generate, without subsidizing those that produce more by failing to recycle. Bedard notes that although PAYT has seldom been introduced without opposition, no municipality in New Hampshire that has adopted the program has yet to rescind it.

DUMP from page one if they “had the intestinal fortitude” to eliminate a position at the town transfer station when it switches to single-stream recycling. “If there is no job you let them go, but I don’t see that the job is gone,” said Ober who reminded the audience that single-stream recycling may not happen this year. Lang, who voted to eliminate the position while he was on the Budget Committee, said he thinks those who would save the positions to save the employees are operating on the supposition that these people won’t find other jobs.” “It may not be the job he or she wants,” he continued, “but I’ve done lots of jobs I don’t like.” Livernois said he thinks the issue is one that should ultimately be decided at town meeting when voters will decide whether or not to include the money for the position in the operation budget. He, like Ober, cautioned that the Penacook single-stream recycling facility is not operational yet and the status quo may have to be maintained for another year.

“We have a direct democracy. We’ll figure it out at town meeting,” he said. Ober said she would also consider extending the hours at the transfer station when it switches to single-stream because it is only open 1 1/2 days in the winter and 2 1/2 days in the summer and it’s not always convenient for residents to get there. “Remember single-stream needs employees, too,” she said. Giunta, who served as a selectmen during what he described as “some very rough years” said the town should wait and see what the town meeting wants. “While we want to be compassionate, we must always think of the taxpayer,” he said. In the race for Town Clerk/Tax Collector, incumbent Jane Goss’s challenger Sherry Guyer said she would like to see additional hours added later in the week. When asked if she saw or knew of any problems with how the office is currently run she said, “No.” Goss’s reply was the office was open Monday nights until 6:30 p.m. and she also handles a number of see next page

RIVER from page 2 English and Spanish that read, “Evacuate!!! Your property is in danger right now.” Near Nonconnah Creek, Jeanette Twilley and Shirley Woods waited anxiously, fearing the water will reach their homes. “Hopefully, it don’t come up no more,” Twilley said. All the way south into the Mississippi Delta, people faced the question of whether to stay or go as high water rolled down the river and backed up along its tributaries, breaking flood records that have stood since the Depression. Because of levees and other flood defenses built over the years, engineers said it is unlikely any major metropolitan areas will be inundated as the water pushes downstream over the next week or two, but farms, small towns and even some urban areas could see extensive flooding. “It’s going to be nasty,” said Bob Bea, a civil engineer at the University of California-Berkeley who investigated levee failures in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. How bad it gets depends on how well the flood protection systems have been built and maintained, he said.

Vice President Joe Biden joined Obama in a briefing with the mission members and then emerged to put it bluntly: “We just got to spend time with the assaulters who got bin Laden.” Defense Secretary Robert Gates met with members of the bin Laden mission team a day earlier to express his admiration and appreciation, Pentagon press secretary Geoff Morrell said.

Obama’s appearance here culminated a week-long response to the demise of the long-hunted al-Qaida leader, from the White House to ground zero in New York to Fort Campbell, home of the famous 101st Airborne Division. The division has been integral to Obama’s war plan in Afghanistan, and many of its combat teams have returned recently from tours of duty. The week gave a political and emotional lift to the president; in turn, he called for the unity that has eluded him in divisive Washington for most of his term.

Lakes Region Real Estate Market Report / Roy Sanborn

Prime Time As of May 1, we have 1,146 homes available for sale in the towns that we track in this Lake Region Real Estate Market Report, with an average asking price of $546,127 and a median (or midpoint) price of $277,392. That compares to 1,169 homes on the market last May and 1083 in May of 2009. The average asking price last May was $586,170 and a median of $289,900. In 2009, the average was $555,857 and a median of $299,000. Homes prices are definitely down and the inventory is definitely back up which is to be expected this time of year. After all, it is “PrimeTime” and lots of properties are coming on the market. Maybe we need Deion “Prime Time” Sanders, the infamous showboating Dallas Cowboy cornerback, to make an appearance here and get things fired up? The current inventory level represents an 18 month supply of homes on the market. It was only a few months ago that we were down to a 12 month supply of homes on the market so we definitely need to get some sold. However, things are getting definitely busier. Just about every agent I have spoken with say they have had more showings and buyers out looking at property. Maybe it’s just the spring market, but It’s a pretty good feeling just the same. Deals are still extremely hard to put together and keeping them together once the parties agree on a price is not easy, either. We have had a couple of issues that have come up lately with appraisals and mortgage underwriters that are going to con-

tinue to be headaches moving forward. One issue is that many of the homes that we have in the Lakes Region have finished lower levels (that’s a fancy term for basement) that are used for living space. Walk out basements are done to take advantage of the sloping topography of the area to create some affordable square footage to the home. The walk out lower levels are usually every bit as nice as the upper floors and contain family rooms, bedrooms, and bathrooms. While the square footage cost of the lower level spaces is substantially lower, you do get taxed on the space. Just ask anyone who got a permit to finish their basement to take advantage of that unused space. The problem is that appraisers and banks don’t always count that space. Say you are trying to sell a 2,000 square foot home with 1,000 square feet upstairs and 1,000 square feet down in the lower level walk out. There are two bedrooms on the upper level and one on the lower. Appraisers and loan underwriters look at this as a 1,000 square foot two bedroom home, so that’s that what they have to use for comparable sales. Guess what that does to a home’s value? Another problem we’ve had is with flood zone issues around Lake Winnipesaukee. Lenders want to make sure that a waterfront home being purchased is not in the flood zone and to make sure that the buyer gets flood insurance if it is. That sounds see next page

‘New Frontiers in Marketing’ luncheon seminar presented by Plymouth Regional Chamber of Commerce PLYMOUTH — The Plymouth Regional Chamber of Commerce (PRCC) will present their next Brown Bag Luncheon Seminar at Plymouth State University’s Welcome Center and Ice Arena from noon — 1 p.m. on Wednesday, May 11. Terri Dautcher, a member of the PSU faculty, will present part three in her series, “New Frontiers in Marketing.” In this fast-paced interactive seminar, Dautcher will share her insights into the next era of web marketing. She will focus on the abundant easy-to-use tools for small businesses and how these free and low cost web-based options can help support marketing and promotional efforts. “In a few hours any business can have a web

site, blog, or Facebook page that can bring in business, build buzz, and offer benefits in so many other ways,” said Dautcher. “Whether you already have a sophisticated web presence, or are just wishing you did, you’ll find something to take away from this session.” This monthly schedule of educational seminars and professional skills training conducted by the PRCC is part of their active support of the regional businesses and is possible through the generous support of key area businesses. For more information, call the Chamber office at 536-1001 or e-mail

from preceding page fairly reasonable despite the fact that Winnipesaukee’s level is controlled by a dam and it is not likely to flood. The problem is that the FEMA flood maps are pretty inaccurate. The maps show that part of every property on Winnipesaukee is in the flood zone, but that doesn’t mean the actual house is. So when loan underwriters see that a property being purchased could be in the flood zone they may ask for an Elevation Certificate for the property which is then filed with FEMA to get the flood maps amended . That means you need to establish the elevation of the basement floor to show that it is out of the flood zone. The house could be 10 feet above the flood level but the underwriters can’t see that from their cubicle. So this little glitch can cost the home owner $1,500 to $2,000 for a surveyor to go out to the site, determine the elevations, and file the appropriate paperwork which can then take 60 days to process. Buyers can close on the property if they get flood

insurance and then get a refund once they prove the structure is out of the flood zone. But it still will cost the seller a lot of money unnecessarily. Not all lenders will require Elevation Certificates, but waterfront sellers shouldn’t be surprised if it happens. On another note, this has certainly been a great week for the United States and a bad week for terrorists! Hats off to the armed forces and our intelligence community for performing flawlessly and avenging the atrocious acts of 9/11. They have restored a sense of pride to an American public in dire need of some good news. Thank you!

Hazard Mitigation Plan Committee meeting at Ashland Town Office

ASHLAND — The Hazard Mitigation Plan Committee will have their second meeting on at the Townb Office from 10 a.m. — noon on Monday, May 9. The committee is represented by a variety of local interests. The committee’s focus will be on the natural and manmade hazards that put Ashland at risk and the development of recommendations to protect the safety and well being of town residents and critical facilities. Residents and representatives from neighboring communities and area businesses are encouraged to attend and provide input. Hazard Mitigation Planning is

important to reducing disaster losses, as are appropriate regulations and land use ordinances. The most significant areas of concern for Ashland will be determined as a result of this process. With the update to the Hazard Mitigation Plan, community leaders will be able to prioritize actions to reduce the impacts of these and other hazards. Community leaders want the town to be a disaster resistant community and believe that updating the Hazard Mitigation Plan will bring Ashland one-step closer to that goal. For more information, call the Town Office at 968-4432 or the Lakes Region Planning Commission at 279-8171.

Pooch Café LOLA

By Holiday Mathis uplifting to the people around them. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There is no such thing as “easy money.” You’ll do yourself a favor by avoiding all promises that have to do with making a fast buck. Talk to the savvy people you know about how to maximize your financial efforts. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The focus is on a relationship that is still in the early stages. Whether the relationship is oriented toward business or pleasure, you’ll look at a person’s heart before you determine whether to go forward. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). No one knows what to do with pity. It’s not something you can wear or eat. Make sure that when you give your help, you are giving something more concrete. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Much of what you like or don’t like is personal, familial or cultural. You will open your heart to those who are very different in their preferences and add some color to your world. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your strong voice and confident, fluid way of moving will tell a story about how well you know yourself. Your self-assurance will make others certain about you, too. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 7). The bonds of friendship and love will be strengthened. This year brings enjoyable times with those who share your humor and taste. You’ll make deals through an educational or familial network. You’ll attain a personal goal in July. A professional environment is featured in August. November brings financial luck. Gemini and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 25, 19, 40 and 11.

by Richard Thompson

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You have already learned what you need to do. Now the question is whether you are at liberty to do so. Do you have the resources? This is your day to take stock. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A cranky person may be funny for a while, especially if you don’t know this person very well. But after continued exposure, the attitude gets old fast. That’s why you’re sure to do the things you know will keep your spirits high. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You listen carefully to your loved ones. Your attention is a precious commodity, and hopefully they will value it as such. It’s hard to recognize the value yourself until you’re in a situation where no one is listening. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your recent experience has you feeling a little wiser and older, but in no way does this mean that you are old. Your state of mind gets more youthful with every new thing you learn. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may have felt unmotivated for the past few days, but that changes now, as you understand what it is you must do. Your focus on an end result will help you at the start and middle of the project. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Chinese mystic philosopher Lao Tzu said, “Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength; loving someone deeply gives you courage.” You’ll feel both sides of the statement today. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Seek the truth. Some will try to eliminate the competition through negative press -a sure sign that they themselves are insecure about what they have to offer. Stick with those who are positive and

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Saturday, May 7, the 127th day of 2011. There are 238 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 7, 1945, Germany signed an unconditional surrender at Allied headquarters in Rheims (rams), France, ending its role in World War II. On this date: In 1711 (New Style calendar), Scottish philosopher David Hume was born in Edinburgh. In 1789, the first inaugural ball was held in New York in honor of President George Washington and his wife, Martha. In 1861, Indian poet Rabindranath Tagore was born in Calcutta. In 1915, nearly 1,200 people died when a German torpedo sank the British liner RMS Lusitania off the Irish coast. In 1941, Glenn Miller and His Orchestra recorded “Chattanooga Choo Choo” for RCA Victor. In 1954, the 55-day Battle of Dien Bien Phu in Vietnam ended with Vietnamese insurgents overrunning French forces. In 1963, the United States launched the Telstar 2 communications satellite. In 1975, President Gerald R. Ford formally declared an end to the “Vietnam era.” In Ho Chi Minh City — formerly Saigon — the Viet Cong celebrated its takeover. In 1977, Seattle Slew won the Kentucky Derby, the first of his Triple Crown victories. (On this date in 2002, Seattle Slew died.) In 1984, a $180 million out-of-court settlement was announced in the Agent Orange class-action suit brought by Vietnam veterans who charged they’d suffered injury from exposure to the defoliant. One year ago: A BP-chartered vessel lowered a 100-ton concrete-and-steel vault onto the ruptured Deepwater Horizon well in an unprecedented, and ultimately unsuccessful, attempt to stop most of the gushing crude fouling the sea. Before a record hockey crowd of 77,803, the United States lost to host Germany 2-1 in the opening game of the world ice hockey championships. Dave Fisher, lead singer of the 1960s folk group the Highwaymen, died in Rye, N.Y., at age 69. Today’s Birthdays: Former Sen. Pete Domenici, R-N.M., is 79. Singer Jimmy Ruffin is 72. Actress Robin Strasser is 66. Singer-songwriter Bill Danoff is 65. Rhythmand-blues singer Thelma Houston is 65. Rock musician Bill Kreutzmann (Grateful Dead) is 65. Rock musician Prairie Prince is 61. Actor Robert Hegyes is 60. Movie writer-director Amy Heckerling is 59. Actor Michael E. Knight is 52. Rock musician Phil Campbell (Motorhead) is 50. Country musician Rick Schell is 48. Rock singer-musician Chris O’Connor is 46. Actress Traci Lords is 43. Singer Eagle-Eye Cherry is 40. Actor Breckin Meyer is 37. Rock musician Matt Helders (Arctic Monkeys) is 25.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, May 7, 2011— Page 23


Dear Annie: You recently printed a “Contract for Drivers,” by John Violette. It requires teenage drivers to maintain decent grades, follow all traffic laws and never drive impaired or get in the car with a driver who is. It reminded me of the essay “Dead at 17,” which relates what happens when kids don’t follow those rules. Every year there are new teenage drivers who haven’t seen it. Maybe if parents attach it to the contract, the need to drive safely will have a greater impact. Please print it again. -- Chicago Mom of Three Dear Mom: This essay and John Violette’s contract make an effective combo. We hope parents will show both to their newly licensed children: “Dead at Seventeen” by John Berrio Agony claws my mind. I am a statistic. When I first got here I felt very much alone. I was overwhelmed by grief, and I expected to find sympathy. I found no sympathy. I saw only thousands of others whose bodies were as badly mangled as mine. I was given a number and placed in a category. The category was called “Traffic Fatalities.” The day I died was an ordinary school day. How I wish I had taken the bus! But I was too cool for the bus. I remember how I wheedled the car out of Mom. “Special favor,” I pleaded. “All the kids drive.” When the 2:50 p.m. bell rang, I threw my books in the locker ... free until tomorrow morning! I ran to the parking lot, excited at the thought of driving a car and being my own boss. It doesn’t matter how the accident happened. I was goofing off -- going too fast, taking crazy chances. But I was enjoying my freedom and having fun. The last thing I remember was passing an old lady who seemed to be going awfully slow. I heard a crash and felt a terrific jolt.

Glass and steel flew everywhere. My whole body seemed to be turning inside out. I heard myself scream. Suddenly, I awakened. It was very quiet. A police officer was standing over me. I saw a doctor. My body was mangled. I was saturated with blood. Pieces of jagged glass were sticking out all over. Strange that I couldn’t feel anything. Hey, don’t pull that sheet over my head. I can’t be dead. I’m only 17. I’ve got a date tonight. I’m supposed to have a wonderful life ahead of me. I haven’t lived yet. I can’t be dead. Later I was placed in a drawer. My folks came to identify me. Why did they have to see me like this? Why did I have to look at Mom’s eyes when she faced the most terrible ordeal of her life? Dad suddenly looked very old. He told the man in charge, “Yes, he’s our son.” The funeral was weird. I saw all my relatives and friends walk toward the casket. They looked at me with the saddest eyes I’ve ever seen. Some of my buddies were crying. A few of the girls touched my hand and sobbed as they walked by. Please, somebody -- wake me up! Get me out of here. I can’t bear to see Mom and Dad in such pain. My grandparents are so weak from grief they can barely walk. My brother and sister are like zombies. They move like robots. In a daze. Everybody. No one can believe this. I can’t believe it, either. Please, don’t bury me! I’m not dead! I have a lot of living to do! I want to laugh and run again. I want to sing and dance. Please don’t put me in the ground! I promise if you give me just one more chance, God, I’ll be the most careful driver in the whole world. All I want is one more chance. Please, God, I’m only 17.

‘Earning a Living in the Arts’ topic of free lecture at Broadway North on May 19

BELMONT — “Earning a Living in the Arts,” a free lecture for aspiring teen dancers, singers, and actors, and their parents will be presented by Broadway North Heidi Noyes School of Performing Arts at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 19. Renowned New York talent scout Peter Sklar will lead the discussion. Sklar knows a thing or two about helping aspiring child stars achieve success. His list of protégés includes Sarah Jessica Parker, Reese Witherspoon, and Mischa Barton, to name a few, along with many current and former Broadway, TV, and film actors, singers, and dancers. Reality shows like “American Idol” and “So You Think You Can Dance” have springboarded some of

the most talented kids in the nation into super stardom. But with so much available talent, what really sets one kid apart from another? According to Sklar, an arts career is about two things: self-image and health. He argues that these qualities outweigh looks, training, connections, and even talent. In “Earning a living in the Arts,” Sklar will explain why his views are in sync with the needs of top New York and Hollywood agents and casting directors. “The people who sit behind the table are trying to decide two things: do they like you, and do they believe you,” said Sklar. “If you don’t feel good mentally and physically, you won’t open up and show

us who you really are. When that happens — no matter how good you are, how pretty, or who you know — we’ve already lost interest.” Alluding to a dramatic rise in self-destructive behavior such as smoking, drinking, drugs, and eating disorders among so-called “happy” teens, Sklar marvels at how often these activities secretly co-exist with good grades, good behavior, and virtually every other outward sign of stability. “The kids I interview are the smartest and most talented — the highest achievers in the nation,” he said. “And they’re often the most unhappy, unhealthy, and least employable.” see next page

Meredith Village Savings Bank employees raise $90,000 for United Way MEREDITH — Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB) donated more than $90,000 to the Lakes Region United Way in 2010. The donation is the result of the cumulative efforts of nearly 85 percent of the bank’s 200-plus employees, retirees, and board members, who gave a total of more than $45,000 that was then matched, dollar-for-dollar, by the bank. “MVSB sets the pace for giving to the United Way, and to many other local organizations throughout the Lakes Region,” noted Jack Terrill, president of the Lakes Region United Way. “It’s not just the funds themselves that allow us to help people in need, it’s the positive example that MVSB’s contribution sets for other companies and individuals in the region to follow. Others see their enthusiastic support and they want to get on board, too. We couldn’t do what we do without the kind of support that Meredith Village Savings Bank and their employees give us each year.”

To achieve this outstanding level of giving, MVSB contributors gave an average of $258 each, which rose to more than $516 apiece with the bank match. A total of 29 MVSB contributors have been named “Leadership Givers” for each giving $500 or more to this year’s campaign. “I’m extremely proud of the extraordinary generosity of our employees, retirees, and board members who have not only given a record amount to this campaign, but who, year after year, give hundreds of hours of their time to volunteer for the local community,” said MVSB President and CEO Sam Laverack, who also praised the efforts of LRUW leadership and MVSB campaign coordinators Charleen Hughes, Amy Carbone, and Miriam Simmons. “This remarkable success would not have been possible without the enthusiasm and leadership of Charleen, Amy and Miriam and the direction and support provided by Jack Terrill and his staff at the United Way.”

from preceding page Sklar boasts an Ivy League pedigree — a masters degree in Education from Harvard University — and four decades of experience. He’s been the subject of multiple feature-length articles in the New York Times, was interviewed on E! True Hollywood Story, appeared as a guest expert on “Donahue,” and has had his work presented on the Bravo Channel, “Good Morning America,” and dozens of other media outlets. He is currently developing an original musical based on his experiences entitled “The Kid Who
