Live from Laconia, it’s Bike Week By rOGer amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Very few things associated with Laconia Bike Week are routine and boring. And that extends to press conferences as well. Yesterday’s annual pre-rally press gathering turned out to be a fun-filled event which brought rounds of laughter from participants and produced two scenes worthy of reality television. Which makes sense when you realize that the 88th annual event is being filmed

Man charged with string of Gilford burglaries has been extradited from Massachusetts GILFORD — A Belknap County Corrections Officer confirmed yesterday the Boston area man alleged to be responsible for seven of nearly 15 burglaries is in local custody. Kolby Fenner, 34, whose last known address was 5526 NE 63rd St. in Seattle, Wash. was indicted last week by a Belknap County grand jury for seven counts of burglary, one count of receiving stolen property, and one count of attempted burglary. Gilford Police announced on May 12 that after a four-month investigation into a string of burglaries that plagued the Gunstock Acres section of town over the winter, police in Brookline, Mass.

Top Democrat women dodge tough call on Weiner’s behavior

WASHINGTON (AP) — Pursed lips. Frosty glares. Polite demurrals. Icy silence. Women in politics are grappling with the distinctly unfunny choice of restraining themselves or letting rip what they really think about Rep. Anthony Weiner’s X-rated online conduct and whether he belongs in Congress. They’ll be vexed by the question awhile longer because the 46-year-old Democrat from New York City told the New York Post on Thursday he won’t resign. The scandal presents a maddening choice for these female leaders, none shy, between speaking out or keeping quiet about behavior that, at best, is disrespectful of women. “You’re right, I don’t like” questions about Weiner, Sen. Dianne Feinstein said with a smile. Feinstein, D-Calif., was elected in 1992, known as “the Year of the Woman.” She said she’s shocked and saddened by the matter, which grew worse as the week went on, and see WEINER page 4

Gingrich campaign a mess as top aides resign WASHINGTON (AP) — The entire top echelon of Newt Gingrich’s presidential campaign resigned on Thursday, a stunning mass exodus that left his bid for the Republican nomination in tatters. But the former House speaker vowed defiantly to remain a candidate. “I am committed to running the substantive, solutions-oriented campaign I set out to run earlier this spring,” the Gingrich said in a posting to his Facebook page shortly after the 16 aides resigned. “The campaign begins anew Sunday in Los Angeles.” Rick Tyler, Gingrich’s spokesman, said that he, campaign manager Rob Johnson and senior strategists had all quit, along with aides in the early primary and caucus states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina. Other officials said Gingrich was informed that his entire high command

was quitting in a meeting at his headquarters in Washington. They cited differences over the direction of the campaign. “We had a different vision for victory,” Tyler told The Associated Press. “And since we couldn’t resolve that difference, I didn’t feel I could be useful in serving him.” He said Gingrich was not allowing enough time to campaign in key states. Scott Rials, a longtime aide who joined the departure, said, “I think the world of him, but at the end of the day we just could not see a clear path to win, and there was a question of commitment.” The upheaval in the campaign was likely to lead to a shake-up in the race for the party’s presidential nomination, as well, as rivals reach out for disaffected staff, and possibly for donors who have been aligned with the former Georgia congressman. Gingrich has long been viewed, by even

his closest allies, as a fountain of policy ideas but a man who is unable to avoid speaking in ways that spark unwelcome controversy. Even before the sudden departures of his top aides, Gingrich’s campaign was off to a notably rocky start. Within days of formally announcing he would run, he was assailed by conservatives for criticizing a plan to remake Medicare that Republicans pushed through the House. He telephoned the author of the plan, Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, to apologize but did not back off his objections. Within days, he had dropped from sight, embarking on a cruise to the Greek Isles with his wife, Callista, while rivals for the Republican nomination kept up their campaign appearances. He returned to the United States this see NEWT page 15

State of Alaska ready to release contents of thousands of Palin e-mails

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — The state of Alaska on Friday will release thousands of Sarah Palin’s emails from her first two years as governor, a disclosure that has taken on national prominence as she flirts with a run for the presidency. The emails were first requested during the 2008 White House race by citizens and news organizations, including The Associated Press, as they vetted a vice presidential nominee whose political experience included less than one term as governor of Alaska and a term as mayor of the small town of Wasilla. The nearly three-year delay has been attributed largely to the sheer volume of the release and the flood of requests. Alaska is releasing the more than 24,000

pages of emails in paper form only and asking news organizations to pick up several boxes worth of documents in Alaska’s capital city, accessible by only air or water. Reporters from several news organizations have already begun arriving in Juneau and are making various plans to disseminate the emails to the public. Palin told Fox News Sunday that “every rock” that could have been kicked over to uncover things in her family has been. But she also said “a lot of those emails obviously weren’t meant for public consumption” and that she expected people might seek to take some of the messages “out of context.” But there may not be any surprises to Palin in the emails. Once the state reviewed

Meredith Cinema Meredith Shopping Ctr. • 279-7836

the records, it gave Palin’s attorneys an opportunity to see if they had any privacy concerns with what was being released. No emails were withheld or redacted as a result of that, said Linda Perez, the administrative director for Gov. Sean Parnell who has been coordinating the release. The voluminous nature of the release, the isolation of Juneau and the limited bandwidth in the city of 30,000 people has forced media outlets to come up with creative ways to transmit the information. The Washington Post is looking for “100 organized and diligent readers” to work with reporters to “analyze, contextualize, and research the e-mails.” The New York Times is employing a similar system. see PALIN page 11

House & Senate begin Woman claims she was sexually assaulted by a relative as a teen & Concord pastor didn’t report it negotiations over final New Hampshire budget

CONCORD (AP) — House and Senate budget negotiators have agreed on how much they plan to spend in New Hampshire’s budget for the two years beginning July 1, yet made no decisions on the spending differences they face. Negotiators opened talks Thursday by agreeing to spend about $24 million less than the Senate used in revenue estimates to build its $4.4 billion general fund budget. The total budget package is about $10.3 billion when federal and other funding sources are included. Negotiators tentatively agreed to proposed spending by some smaller agencies, but left the bigger debates to meetings scheduled Sunday through next Thursday. Their packages differ more over proposed policy changes, such as the House’s provision to take away workers’ union protections if their contract expired. The Senate took out that and other policy changes it felt should have been dealt with in separate legislation. Meanwhile, the University System of New Hampshire’s financial affairs committee is recommending that the system’s board eliminate up to 200 jobs, make significant changes in benefits, defer repairs and dip into reserves to deal with an anticipated 45 percent cut in state aid. The system also anticipates tuition increases for in-state students ranging from 7.4 percent to 8.6 percent. The House cut state aid to $55 million a year and the Senate reduced it further. The deadline for negotiators to reach a compromise is next Thursday. The consumer advocacy group Granite State Progress complained that some conference committees see BUDGET page 8

CONCORD (AP) — A woman says she was sexually assaulted as a teen and that the pastor of her church told her to forgive and forget instead of doing what the law required: report it to authorities. The woman’s allegation surfaced after a recent trial during which a New Hampshire prosecutor suggested the same pastor, the Rev. Chuck Phelps, didn’t do enough to help a rape victim. Phelps, former pastor of Trinity Baptist Church in Concord and now a pastor at a Baptist church in Indianapolis, said through his lawyer, David Gibbs III of Florida, that he will cooperate with investigators. The new accusations were lodged with police by a 34-year-old woman who says her stepfather repeatedly molested her from 1994 to 1996. She said she was 17 and a junior at Trinity Baptist Church’s high school when the assaults began. She left her home in Warner in 1996, when she was 19. In a statement late Thursday afternoon from Gibbs, Phelps said the girl’s family told him the victim was 18 at the time of the assaults began and that both the police and child protective services had been notified. Warner Police Officer Scott Leppard confirmed

this week that his department is investigating the woman’s allegations. Leppard said he did not think statute of limitations would be a factor because the allegations involve the potential sex assault of a minor, a felony. “I think this is just the tip of the iceberg,” Leppard said of the recent conviction and the new allegations. The AP doesn’t typically identify alleged sexual assault victims, but the woman spoke to the AP about the assaults and her interactions with Phelps on the condition that she be identified only by her first name, Cheryl. “I would tell him, ‘no,’ ‘stop’ — and he wouldn’t stop,” she said of her stepfather. “I went straight to my mother when it happened. She acted like it was my fault. When my mom didn’t do anything about it I went to Pastor Phelps. He told me I need to forgive and forget about it.” She said she hasn’t forgiven him yet. “I still suffer from it to this day,” she said. Asked about the allegations, the stepfather told the AP this week: “We’re not giving interviews. Thank you.” The AP is not identifying him, because see PASTOR page 8

Lynch vetoes bill repealing state’s version of minimum wage law

CONCORD (AP) — Gov. John Lynch has vetoed a bill that repeals New Hampshire’s minimum wage law and aligns the state wage with the federal minimum wage. In Thursday’s veto message, Lynch objects that the bill would cede control over New Hampshire wages to the federal government. Lynch said the minimum wage ensures employees

have at least a minimum level of compensation for their work. The state’s current minimum wage is the federal level of $7.25 per hour for most employees, but four years ago the state raised the state’s minimum wage after a decade of federal inaction. Lynch noted that New Hampshire has had its own minimum wage law since 1949.

Dallas takes pivotal game 5 from Heat DALLAS (AP) — Dirk Nowitzki thrust both arms in the air, a sea of blue screaming around him and the Dallas Mavericks finally ahead in these ultraclose NBA finals. Now it really is “now or never” for LeBron James and the Miami Heat. Nowitzki scored 29 points, driving for the go-ahead dunk with 2:45 remaining, and the Mavericks beat the Heat 112-103 on Thursday night to take a 3-2 lead in the NBA Finals. Five years after going up 2-0 on the Heat, the Mavs finally got that elusive third victory, and can wrap up their first championship in Game 6 at Miami on Sunday night. “We’re a very resilient team, you know that,” guard Jason Terry said. “We’ve been in tough battles all playoffs long. It’s not going to stop. It’s going to get even harder. But we’re ready. We’re determined, and this is our time.” James, who called this game “now or never,” responded from his worst playoff performance with 17 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists, and Dwyane Wade battled through a sore left hip after a firstquarter collision to finish with 23 points. Chris Bosh had 19 points and 10 rebounds for the Heat, who get the final two games at home with history against them as they try to win a title in their first season together: In the 26 previous times finals that were tied 2-2, the Game 5 winner won 19 of them. The Mavs shot 60 percent through three quarters, briefly gave up the lead in the fourth, then controlled the final few minutes, just as they had in thrilling comebacks in Games 2 and 4. This time, they got to play from ahead thanks to some sizzling shooting: 56.5 percent from the field,

including 13 of 19 (68 percent) from 3-point range. “We made more shots,” Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said. “We did a lot of good things defensively, which led to good offense. ... You never know when the games are going to go that way. The thing we’ve got to do is we’ve got to make sure our defense is consistent.” Terry scored 21 points and J.J. Barea had 17 for the Mavs, who insisted at some point their shots would start falling even against the Heat’s stingy defense. Jason Kidd and Tyson Chandler both finished with 13 points. “I felt great. I felt great. I was in rhythm tonight,” Terry said. “I came out aggressive, something we have to continue to do. We’re not happy with our defensive performance, but offensively, if we score 100, I told you what would happen.” Their offense was simply too good, despite a good bounceback for James. James scored eight points, going just 3 of 11 in Game 4, the first time in 90 postseason games he didn’t hit double figures. It’s been a rough first Finals in Miami for James, who has been accused of everything from “shrinking” to “checking out” in the fourth quarters, when he had just nine points through the first four games. Trying to pump himself up, James wrote “Now or Never!!” on his Twitter page early Thursday morning, later calling this the biggest game of his career. But they feel the same urgency in Dallas, where the slogan “The Time is Now” is printed on those blue T-shirts that surround the court, and where the Mavs are loaded with 30-somethings -- late 30s, in Kidd’s case -- who could be on their last shot at an NBA title.

WEINER from page 2 she wished she could say something lighthearted about it. Does she think Weiner should resign? “I’m not getting into that,” she demurred. It was an apt illustration of the bind in which female lawmakers, particularly Democrats, find

themselves as Weiner’s tawdry saga unfolds. They represent a party trying to position itself as the best choice for women in the lead-up to the 2012 congressional and presidential elections, yet the most senior among them have not called outright for Weiner’s resignation. Most, in fact, have said nothing publicly at all. Weiner admitted four days ago that he had Tweeted sexually charged messages and photos to at least six women and lied about it. How to answer the obvious question — should he quit? — remains a frustrating one for Congress’ women, more so the longer Weiner clings to office. “My sense is they want him to make the decision himself,” said Debbie Walsh, director of the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University. “That is the way the institution works.” Historically, that’s true, because party leaders don’t like to be sullied by the unfortunate behavior of their troops. Leaders don’t want to risk their own clout on a public call for resignation that might be ignored.

Froma Harrop

Cancer drug politics “I shudder at the thought of a government panel assigning a value to a day of a person’s life.” Louisiana Sen. David Vitter said that in response to the Food and Drug Administration’s possible removal of the drug Avastin as a treatment for advanced breast cancer. The Republican went on, “It is sickening to think that care would be withheld from a patient simply because their life is not deemed valuable enough.” Okay, senator, would you spend a billion taxpayer dollars to keep a terminal patient going for an extra 24 hours? Don’t bother answering, because your dramatics have zero to do with the issues involved. The FDA’s job is merely to judge a drug’s effectiveness. An FDA advisory committee found that Avastin did not help breast cancer patients live longer, while its toxic side effects made them feel sicker. At a cost of around $90,000 a year, this is an expensive drug, but its price plays no role in these deliberations. Because of the passions surrounding the debate — fanned by “anti-government” Republicans and Avastin’s maker, Genentech, owned by the Swiss company Roche — the FDA initially overrode the committee and allowed the continued use of Avastin for breast cancer pending further study. When hearings on Avastin commence late this month, expect gravely ill women to credit it for their survival. Expect think tanks funded by the pharmaceutical industry to churn out op-eds in its favor. And expect politicians who say they don’t want government in health care to nonetheless insist that government pay for a costly breast cancer treatment deemed to do more harm than good. It happens that the FDA still considers Avastin valuable for treating colorectal, lung, kidney and brain cancers. If it were a “miracle drug” for advanced breast cancer, why would the FDA nix that use and approve the others? Ideally, only science will influence the FDA’s final decision, expected in September. Supporting Roche’s position is a recent reversal by European regu-

lators, relaxing their own curbs on treating breast cancer patients with Avastin. (They recommended its possible utility in combination with Xeloda, another drug made by Roche.) That judgment awaits final approval by the European Commission. We understand the terror felt by women with advanced breast cancer and their understandable wish to try all their options. But an option is meaningless if unbiased research doesn’t back it up as potentially helpful. And when our society pays for treatments that don’t work, it has less money for those that do. Even if the FDA vetoes Avastin as a breast-cancer drug, it would still accept it for other diseases. Thus, doctors could continue prescribing Avastin off-label to breast cancer patients. However, FDA disapproval of Avastin as a breast cancer treatment would prompt private insurers to not cover that use — even though they legally could. So much for the Republican fairytale vision of private insurers giving us whatever we want because they must compete for our business. The realities will also not stop “conservatives” from grandstanding during the Avastin hearings with their worn complaints about government bureaucrats making important health care decisions. Meanwhile, Rep. Kay Granger, a Texas Republican, makes this interesting argument in bashing the FDA’s position on Avastin: “It is troubling that women in Germany and France will soon have access to a life-saving drug, while women in the U.S. will not.” Heavens. Granger couldn’t possibly be talking about those socialized health care systems in Europe that she and other Republicans say they are trying to save us from. But she is. There will be difficult debates ahead on what expensive medical care taxpayers should subsidize. This is not one of them. (A member of the Providence Journal editorial board, Froma Harrop writes a nationally syndicated column from that city. She has written for such diverse publications as The New York Times, Harper’s Bazaar and Institutional Investor.)

Unemployment rate has increased just 1.5% under Obama To the editor, It seems to me everyone, especially the Republicans have forgotten and don’t want to admit, what Obama inherited from the Bush Administration. Just imagine where we would be, if Bush had just left the surplus to where it was when he came into office, or just left the tax cuts alone, “what a beautiful world it would be.” In regards to the unemployment

rate, I cannot help but wonder WHY it is said that Obama’s unemployment is the highest ever at 9.1-percent. This is not true. Obama inherited an unemployment rate of 7.6-percent from GW Bush. It is now 9.1-percent. 9.1-percent minus 7.6-percent = 1.5-percent. 1.5-percent is what Obama created, NOT 9.1-percent Nancy Leclerc North Woodstock

LETTERS Aid Planned Parenthood if you want but leave tax dollars out of it To the editor, After reading the article Annie Kuster wrote in the May 26th edition of the Plymouth Record Enterprise, it’s plain to see she is very confused. She writes about the damage the Republican-controlled Congress has done. Is she aware that the Democrats control the Senate and that the president is a Democrat? Does she honestly think that they have nothing to do with the mess our country is in. Who does she blame for President Obama’s eight hundred billion dollar stimulus plan that was a total failure? A least we can honestly say that President Bush’s TARP bill is almost fully paid back. Does she know that our housing market is still falling or that the equity that the average American family has in their home has been wiped out? Sounds like the only news she gets is from the main stream media! Annie states she wants to create new jobs and put people back to work, but she has forgotten that the president she helped get elected promised the American people that if his stimulus plan was passed, it would keep the unemployment rate below 8-percent. Well, it has steadily been above 9-percent. Maybe she should call him and advise him how to accomplish keeping his promises. Did she support his “Cash for Clunkers “plan? That was a total failure. As far as the New Hampshire House Republicans and senators are concerned, what a great job they are doing!! They have cut seven hundred

million dollars from our state budget! Not good enough for her. She says they are against organized labor. Not so! They are trying to protect an individual’s freedom of choice. That freedom includes any person’s right not to be forced to join a union or pay the union dues. That’s the real American way! I guess she’s not happy that those nasty Republican’s reversed the “Parental Consent Law.” You know, the Democratic-sponsored law that made it legal for a minor under the age of 13 to get an abortion. That was one of the most absurd laws that have ever been passed! If that’s the kind of New Hampshire values she wants to stand up for, I cannot imagine why anyone would support her. Well thanks to the common sense of the Republicans in office, a minor will now have to have parental consent. As far as Planned Parenthood is concerned, if Annie wants to support their abortion procedures, let her send them a check. Leave my tax dollars out of it! Ms. Kuster says she wants to stand up for our New Hampshire values and thriftiness when it comes to spending and as little government interference in our private lives as possible. Well, I would like to inform her that these ideas are not hers. They are word for word what the Republicans in office at the Statehouse and Washington have been fighting to accomplish. Maybe she should change her party and help us get it done. No more just talk and broken promises for us! Linda Dupere Campton

Our military academies don’t seem to teach exit strategies  To the editor, Col. Douglass Chrissman, “in charge of U. S. forces in four provinces in southern Iraq” (New York Times, June 8) and regarding U. S. troop withdrawals, responded to an attack that just happened. He asks, about leaving Iraq, finally, “What is going to happen to the threat (attacks) when we line up our trucks to leave and start moving out of the country?” Exit will be slow, plodding, vulnerable. On June 2 in 2005, six of us members of N.H. Peace Action were arrested for not leaving Sen. Gregg’s

Concord office. N.H. Peace Action, with petitions and letters and daily presence in Gregg’s office, had been requesting since April 2004 that Sen. Gregg would have a Town Meeting forum to answer questions about exit strategy for Iraq. Of course he ignored us, because that was his nature as a senator: don’t come home to New Hampshire and take hard questions. Make “representative” decisions without constituency input.

LETTERS School board shouldn’t be creating sympathy for right wingers

Let’s hope & pray someone good will run against Smooth Talker

To the editor, Over the years I have attended many meetings of the Gilford selectmen. Without exception, the selectmen have bent over backwards to be courteous, respectful and tolerant of Gilford voters expressing strong dissident view points when the meetings were open to public comment. I am just not seeing this kind of behavior from our elected school board members towards the current dissident group focused on the superintendent position controversy at the meetings I have attended. Dissidents are by nature loud and often even obnoxious. They nevertheless have a constitutional right to demonstrate and petition for a redress of their grievances. I believe the elected public official should be held to a higher standard of behavior. I am seeing at these school board meetings members of the school board being openly contemptuous of my fellow taxpayers and citizens of the town, who are exercising their rights under the law to dissent from the decision of the school board on the retaining of the superintendent of schools position in the budget process. It is only my opinion that the dissidents are gaining the high ground in this hotly disputed issue. My concern is for the legacy consequences of what is currently unfolding. I think many voters like myself, who are skeptical of this dissident group’s longer term motivations, are in fact becoming more sympathetic to their position. We have spent a long 30 years with many failed bond referendums since the fall out of the Town Hall construction fiasco, building up our school system

To the editor, How about John Edwards might be getting a five year prison term? Nice! That is what I mean about LAWYERS running the country. Now let’s see if they will give him the five year sentence or just a slap on the wrist like the rest of the idiots running the country. I thought we were getting the same health care as all of them! Where has that gone? That’s all you hear is all the corruption that all of them who are supposed to be running the country are using tax dollars etc. for their own agendas. How can anyone believe or respect them when they do things like Edwards and all the others? That’s why we need a business man to

into something we can be immensely proud of — a system that is at long last putting the finishing touches on the major components of infrastructure that it has taken so many years to accomplish. I commend the school board on that account! It is not unlikely that this group, made up of many far right wing Darwinist personalities, could over the next several years gain control of the school board. Many of these are carpetbaggers from somewhere else who see themselves as having no social responsibility to pay taxes to educate someone else’s children. They reject the social compact we have made on public education these last +100 years across our nation. Their comprehensive agenda would be a disaster and death knell to the excellence and diversity of our town’s educational system. I would urge that our elected school board members restrain themselves and not be contemptuous of taxpayers who as the school board claims they have done, are acting in a manner that is consistent with their legal rights. I would urge fellow taxpayers to attend these meetings and possible deliberative session and become informed on the issues. I would especially urge people with young children about to enter the public school system and those with children already in the school system to be alert to this one issue’s resolution vs. the dangers of buying into a “their way or the highway”, longer term agenda I suspect this group has, for public education in Gilford. Tim Sullivan Gilford Point, Annapolis, U. S. Air Force Academy, etc. don’t have courses in exiting war? I’m going to fluctuate between appalled and sad for this weakness.

Where is the honesty? I guess no common sense is a part of it. Let’s hope and pray someone can and will run against Mr. Smooth Talker Obama himself! They are all smooth talkers and promise everything and do nothing. A nice paying job for life. They do not have to worry about the economy, only we do.

There are no Luke Skywalkers in Hezbollah, only Darth Vadars To the editor, I have been following the exchange here in the paper between Wm. R.Morley and Russ Wiles regarding Israel and the Palestinians. Even though Russ is a good friend I must be somewhat critical of his response. Please tell me why you feel the need to be so darn polite to people who display overt antisemitism Russ? Liberals, progressive liberals in particular, apparently have no ability for reasoned, rational thought on many issues and on this one in particular. I find it impossible to understand the liberal mind or should I say mindlessness. They insist on casting Israel as the aggressor and the Palestinians as the victims when the opposite is and has been the truth of the matter beginning in 1948. Liberals regurgitate the talking points of the PLO, Hamas, Hezbollah and the rest of the terrorist movement as though they were card carrying members. Is this blindness due to their dogged devotion to a political/ social agenda of are they just out of their minds? I have to ask questions like this because I truly cannot fathom their reasoning. Look at this one issue for example and compare it to like reticules? The KKK and Hamas for example? The KKK is a racist hate

group which uses religion as the basis and justification to threaten, harass, attack and kill those they first try to dehumanize. Likewise Hamas, Hezbollah, PLO and the rest. Liberals can’t stand the KKK so what’s difference? The only thing that is different is race. Would these Israeli-hating liberals have a change of hart if the Palestinians were white Christians instead of Arab Muslims? It makes no sense, none at all. Is it some kind of variation of the Stockholm syndrome or something. Perhaps it’s a misguided Star Wars syndrome casting Israel as the evil empire being fought by the underdog rebellion forces? Let’s be clear on one thing, there is no Luke Skywalker’s in Hezbollah but plenty of Darth Vader’s ready to ruthlessly kill, murder and maim. Additionally, the Jews are out numbered by about a hundred to one. Liberals love to pronounce that the “vast” majority of Muslims are moderate and peace loving. So what? It’s the radical terrorists who drive politics and events in that part of the world while the so called moderates remain silent. I have no use for either. If one refuses to oppose evil they are evil themselves so please point out to me any good ones. Steve Earle Hill

BIKE WEEK from page one should he seek re-election to a fifth term. Lynch instead put the do-rag, which had hair attached on its edges, on Gappen’s head, and both men broke out in uncontrollable laughter, as did onlookers. The second moment came later in the press conference when Jesse James Dupree, lead singer for the rock group Jackyl and a Full Throttle Saloon partner, stood and produced citations received from New Hampshire police for violations relating to the big truck which transported the saloon’s gear to the state. Dupree, who is also director for the filming of the TruTv series, then handed the citations to Lynch, saying “this is an opportunity to let the governor do the right thing,’’ bringing forth a howl of laughter in the room at the Lobster Pound Restaurant where the press conference was held. Also in the audience was Michael Ballard, owner of the Sturgis-based Full Throttle Saloon, who had purchased the 30-acre property in South Dakota in 1999 and has turned it into the world’s largest biker bar, and Angie Carlson, Ballard’s girlfriend, and a dancer at the saloon. The Full Throttle Saloon will set up shop in Laconia under a tent at the Heat Pizza & Grill on Rte. 3 in the Weirs (across from Funspot). Now billed as America’s Original Riding Rally, Laconia is the longest-running motorcycle event in North America, and will be welcoming tens of thousands of guests from around the country June 11-19. Lynch said that the state welcomes motorcyclists and that the rally has evolved over the years “into a wonderful family-oriented event’’ which has become one of the state’s major attractions, bringing thousands of visitors every year.

Gappens, who rode to the press conference on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, the first time in 20 years that he’s ridden a bike, said that Bike Week is one of a number of world class events that bring visitors to the state. Noting that the Speedway will be hosting the 88th running of the Loudon Classic on June 18 as well as NASCAR races in July and September and an IndyCar race in August. He said, “We’re going to put the state’s economy on our back and carry it through June, July, August and September.’’ Major Russell Conte of the New Hampshire State Police said that police look at Bike Week as an opportunity to serve and keep people safe and that during Bike Week the Lakes Region will become the biggest community in the state. Charlie St. Clair, executive director of Laconia Bike Week, presented the Fritzie Baer Award, presented annually by the Baer family to those who have worked on behalf of Bike Week, to former Laconia Police Chief Mike Moyer.

Police Chief Christopher Adams accepted the award on behalf of Moyer, who was unable to attend. Motorcycle Week will kick off on Saturday, June 11 with the 5th Annual Peter Makris Memorial Run, a fundraiser which is held in honor of the late owner of the Naswa Resort, who was a strong supporter of Bike Week. The event has raised over $120,000 for the Laconia Fire Department’s Lifesaving Fund and for Easter Seals of NH Veteran’s Count Program. Registration starts at 9 a.m. The ride around Lake Winnipesaukee gets underway at 11:15 and returns to the Naswa at 1:30 in the afternoon. One of the major highlights of Bike Week is the annual motorcycle hillclimb at Gunstock Mountain Resort which gets underway at 9 a.m., Wednesday, June 15. Run by Ridge Runners Promotions of Enfield since it was revived as a part of Bike Week in 1993, the event has drawn as many as 12,000 spectators in a single day and features as many as 400 competitors, ranging from seven to 70 years old.

BURGLARIES from page one moving Fenner from Massachusetts to New Hampshire — or extradition — took about a month. During the investigation, police recovered several items reportedly stolen from vacant homes over a four-month period as well as a Jeep Wrangler allegedly stolen from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Mass. Working with Brookline and the U.S, Marshals Service, police said they were able to obtain physical evidence in seven of the burglaries for which Fenner has been indicted, including cell phone records,

DNA, footwear impressions and fingerprints. Police said all seven burglary indictments — 51 Track View Road, 89 Cottonwood Trail, 5 Cottonwood Trail, 30 Mountain Drive, 96 Mountain Drive, 19 Ridgeline Loop and 194 Mountain Drive — were for homes that were temporarily vacant for some period during the winter. Police also said evidence in each of the seven burglary indictments shared some similar elements but declined to elaborate. Fenner could appear in Laconia District Court as early as this morning.

BUDGET from page 3 met Thursday without the required 24 hour notice to the public. “The extreme leadership of the New Hampshire House has continued its pattern of secret meetings, misguided policy priorities and questionable ethics,” said Zandra Rice Hawkins, the group’s director. Hawkins noted the time and meeting location for the budget conference was among those not posted on the Legislature’s web site. PASTOR from page 3 he hasn’t been charged with a crime. New Hampshire law requires clergy, among others, to report any suspicion a child is being sexually assaulted. Failure to do so can result in a misdemeanor criminal conviction. Concord Police Lt. Keith Mitchell said Phelps made no reports of any alleged sexual assaults in 1994 or 1995 involving the woman or her stepfather. Merrimack County prosecutor Wayne Coull said the statute of limitations on misdemeanors is one year, meaning Phelps couldn’t be prosecuted now even if he did fail to report suspicions of sex abuse more see next page

Clarification: Colonial Theater Advisory Committee has already formed nonprofit corp. A portion of a story about the Colonial Theater Advisory Committee that was published in our Thursday, June 9 edition needs some clarification. Committee Chair Rod Dyer reports the committee, appointed by then city manager Eileen Cabanel, has already formed a nonprofit corporation — Cul-

tural Arts Center of the Lakes Region, primarily to make the effort to revitalize the Colonial Theater eligible to receive grants. Also, Dyer said that Meredith Village Savings Bank is being represented on the committee by Vice President Gracie E. Cilley.

BELMONT — The New Hampshire Marine Patrol has lifted the most recent “no wake” order on Silver Lake. The Dam Bureau of the Department of Environmental Services (DES) reported that the gauge indicated the

level of the lake had fallen below 467 feet above sea level. A “no wake” order was issued in April, rescinded on May 7 and imposed again on May 21 when the lake level again topped 467 feet.

ROBBERY from page one to commit robbery and one felony of being an accomplice to armed robbery. Burgess initially told investigating officers that she had been visiting with the victim, on or about April 11, just before Vanderhoef allegedly disguised his appearance, entered the victim’s apartment and demanded she “’give him her meds.’” After running from her her home and calling police, the victim told police Vanderhoef held a knife to her stomach, pushed her and took her prescription medication from her bedroom. She told officers Burgess had just left when Vanderhoef allegedly went into her apartment. After speaking with investigating officers, the victim called Burgess and asked her to return to her apartment. She did, and agreed to accompany waiting police to the station for a further discussion. Burgess, who was driving a red sport utility vehicle, allegedly told a Laconia police detective that she had been with Vanderhoef at his apartment when she drove him to 15 Howard St. Apartment 1 “to pick up drugs, specifi-

cally oxycodone” from the victim. Affidavits for Vanderhoef’s arrest indicate Burgess told police that Vanderhoef had insisted on accompanying her to the victim’s home. She told detectives she went first into the victim’s home. Burgess allegedly told police that within minutes of her going into the Howard Street apartment, Vanderhoef entered and demanded to know where the drugs were, was told they were in the bedroom, grabbed them and left on foot. Burgess told police she also left and was driving alone down Church Street when Vanderhoef jumped into the back seat of her car and ordered her to continue driving. She told detectives she was afraid because Vanderhoef still had the knife, so she did what she was told. Vanderhoef was arrested later that day and refused bail. Vanderhoef’s indictment charged that he conspired with Burgess and committed the theft, while Burgess’s indictment charges she drove him to and from the victim’s apartment. — Gail Ober

‘No wake’ order lifted on Silver Lake

from preceding page than a decade ago. Cheryl came forward after the recent rape trial involving another Phelps parishioner. In that case, Ernest Willis, 52, was convicted of multiple counts of statutory and forcible rape of his children’s then-15-year-old baby sitter in 1997. The girl became pregnant as a result of the rapes. Phelps arranged for her to move to Colorado to live with a Baptist family there and put her baby up for adoption. Phelps reported the allegations involving Willis to police, but they could not locate the girl and the case was shelved for more than a decade. Coull took issue with Phelps’ actions, telling jurors that the girl’s faith in him got her “shamed, shunned, silenced and shipped away.” Phelps testified in Willis’ trial and said he felt like he’d been “thrown under the bus.” He said he had made the girl go before the congregation and apologize for getting pregnant out of wedlock but denied that amounted to church discipline or a public “shunning” of the girl. Cheryl said she was not made to go before the congregation, but Phelps

arranged a meeting with her and her stepfather. At the meeting, Phelps told her stepfather to stop assaulting her, she said. She says her stepfather didn’t stop. Asked how many times he groped her, she told the AP, “I can’t even count. I really can’t.” She said she is prepared to return to Concord to testify against him if needed. Cheryl now has a criminal record related to a drug addiction and she now lives in a halfway house in Merced, Calif., where she’s on probation. Her uncle Robert Sheffield, of Big Sandy, Texas, blames the abuse for her problems. “It’s not a pretty picture,” he said. “And it irritates me no end because I know why.” Sheffield said he once confronted Phelps. Sheffield said Phelps told him the issue had been “dealt with” and that confidentiality rules barred him from going into detail. “I remember that phone call like it was yesterday,” Sheffield said. “I’ve been angry at that man for 15 years. He definitely told me that he told her to forgive and forget.”

Hearing on ‘no wake’ zone for Barber Pole channel set for July 30 By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

TUFTONBORO— The New Hampshire Department of Safety (DOS) has scheduled a public hearing on a petition seeking to designate the Barber’s Pole channel on Lake Winnipesaukee a no wake zone on Saturday, July 30 at noon in the Tuftonboro Meeting House on Route 109-A. Petitions for a “no wake zone” at Barber’s Pole failed in 1988, 1997, 2008 and again last year when an order was granted only to be later rescinded. Residents petitioned last May, a hearing was held on July 21 and the order was issued on July 30. However, the order was rescinded when a group including Scott Verdonck, the president of Safe Boaters of New Hampshire (SBONH), the organization that challenged the speed limits on Lake Winnipesaukee, successfully claimed that some of the petitioners failed to qualify as either residents or property owners of Tuftonboro and the order was rescinded on procedural grounds. Barber’s Pole stretches for about

2,000 feet — about twice the length of the Weirs Channel — from the southeastern tip of Little Birch Island, off the mouth of Orchard Cove, to where the eastern shoreline of Cow Island recedes to the west. Between the buoys to the west and the shore to the east, the channel is about 390 feet wide. In April, Thomas Hilbink, who owns property on Little Birch Island, submitted a petition, signed by at east 25 residents or property owners of Tuftonboro to the DOS. Hilbink said that the petition mirrors the one submitted last year. “Things haven’t changed,” he said. “The lake must remain safe for all those who use it, not only those able to afford large powerboats.” Verdonck said that SBONH is not taking a position either for or against a no wake zone at Barber’s Pole and will support the ruling of the department. Although he encouraged members with an opinion on the issue to attend the hearing and express their views, he asked them not to give any impression that they represent the organization.

NORTHFIELD — Geoffrey Ziminsky and Stephen Bluhm, the two remaining members of the town Selectboard, have appointed Lisa Swancott to fill the vacant seat created with last month’s resignation of Jamie Knowlton. She will serve on the board until March 2012, at which time she will be eligible for re-election. Swancott was selected from a field of six candidates who submitted letters of interest to the Selectboard within the past week. Candidates included former selectmen, budget committee members and interested citizens. At their meeting of June 7, board members reviewed the letters of interest and were given the opportunity to ask candidates follow up questions before beginning their public deliberations. “It comes down to whether we want to go with a former Selectboard member who can step right in and hit the floor running or if we want to go with someone who has experience with town budgets but can bring new

ideas to the board.” said Selectman Bluhm. Ziminsky agreed, noting that he had a preference to chose someone who could bring fresh ideas to the board, especially in relation to major projects such as enhancing the town recycling program that will be discussed over the next few months. He noted that Swancott’s experience on the town Budget Committee and Capital Improvement Program (CIP) Committee, couple with her small business experience and willingness to work with fellow board members and the public would bring a good set of qualities to the board. Swancott, who was sworn in by Town Clerk Cindy Caveney immediately after the vote, was ready to get started, citing her position on the Budget Committee she noted, “It’ll be interesting to have to administer the budget that we put together last year.” Knowlton resigned due to an impending relocation to Virginia.

PALIN from page 2 Mother Jones, ProPublica and are working with Crivella West Inc., to create a searchable database of the emails. The Associated Press also plans to scan the paper copies to make searchable files available to its members and clients. The state said it was not practical to provide electronic versions of the emails. It’s not clear yet whether the 24,199 pages being released will contain any major revelations, but they will provide a fresh look at the inner-workings of her office from the time she took office in December 2006 to her ascension to vice presidential nominee in September 2008. Requests have been made for emails from her final 10 months in office. The state hasn’t

begun the process of reviewing those yet. Palin resigned partway through her term, in July 2009. Prior records requests have shed light on the Palin administration’s efforts to advance a natural gas pipeline project and the role played by Palin’s husband in state business. The email release adds another dimension to the vetting of Palin that began in 2008 and comes as she has become a prominent national political figure, attracting large crowds during a recent bus tour across the Northeast. Palin’s attorney referred questions about the emails to the treasurer of her political action committee, who did not immediately respond Thursday. The emails were sent and received see next page

Safe Boaters want all marinas to evaluate renters’boating skills before turning over keys CONCORD — Safe Boaters of New Hampshire announced Wednesday that Rep. John Hikel of Goffstown has filed a bill amending the states “Temporary Boating Certificate” process to include an in-water evaluation. Currently all boaters in New Hampshire must take a boating safety class and a proctored exam to obtain a lifetime boating certificate. These certificates have been paramount in increasing awareness and educating the boating public. Since their inception N.H. has achieved the best boating safety record in New England, according to the U.S. Coast Guard. To allow for beginners and out of state visitors to enjoy the use of the state’s waters, they can obtain a temporary safety certificate from licensed marinas. While this has been a controversial issue regarding inexperienced boaters, the temporary certificates have been crucial to marinas that rely on boat rentals as a significant part of their yearly income. While many states also require some type of safety certificates, which are reciprocal in the state of New Hampshire, many states do not require such a license. In many instances this temporary certificate allows these expe-

rienced boaters to rent a boat while vacationing in N.H. without having to spend an entire day in a classroom. The current Temporary License can be obtained one time only in a calendar year and is good for 14 days. The multiple choice test is administered by certified marinas and personnel. If the individual fails they cannot retake the test for 24 hours. However while this procedure tests a person’s understanding of the rules of the water, it does not test a person’s ability to pilot a boat. The change requested on behalf of Safe Boaters of New Hampshire asks that a certified individual renting the boat also do an in water evaluation to make sure renters are competent to safely boat on New Hampshire’s lakes and waterways. Many reputable marinas already conduct this practice and SBONH President Scott Verdonck said his organization feels it should be uniform for all marinas to do the same. “This new law should improve safety of inexperienced boaters on the lake as well as the general boating public,” said Verdonck. “This will help ensure that individuals are not putting themselves, their passengers or other boaters around them at risk.”

Laconia fails to secure Brownfield grant LACONIA — The city was bypassed this week when the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) awarded $1.8-million in grants through its Brownfields Program for cleaning up and redeveloping contaminated sites. Planning Director Shanna Saunders said that the city applied for a $200,000 grant, which could have been applied to assess the environmental conditions on any property within the city limits. For instance, the funds could have been used to defray the cost of assessing the site of abandoned municipal dumping grounds in the neighborhood of Frank Bean Road and Morin Road, where the EPA and New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (DES) have detected pollutants in groundwater sampling and surface investigations during the past several years. However, Saunders said that the highest priority was the state-owned property on North Main Street that

formerly housed the Laconia State School and Lakes Region (prison) Facility, which the Legislature has informally offered for sale to the city. City officials have expressed interest in acquiring the property and have commissioned an appraisal. An initial environmental assessment indicated the presence of a variety of contaminants on the 77 acres where most of the 26 buildings are located, but without a more thorough analysis the extent of the contamination and the cost of removing it cannot be determined. The grant would have funded the assessment, which in turn would have provided a more accurate value of the property. Concord received the lion’s share of grants, $600,000 for addressing conditions at an abandoned tannery in Penacook and $1-million to replenish the revolving loan fund of the Capital Region Development Council. The balance was awarded to Bristol to clean up the site of the Mica Building.

from preceding page by Palin’s personal and state email accounts, and the ones being released were deemed to be related to state business. She and top aides were known to communicate using private email accounts. Perez said Palin gave the state a CD with emails from her Yahoo account, and other employees were asked to review their private accounts for emails related to state business and to send those to their state accounts. Another 2,275 pages are being withheld for reasons including attorney-client, work product or executive privilege; an additional 140 pages were deemed to be “non-records,” or unrelated to state business.

Some emails may have been previously reviewed in other, earlier public records requests, such as in the Troopergate investigation, in which Palin was accused of putting pressure on public safety officials to fire her brother-in-law, an Alaska State Trooper who was going through a bitter divorce from Palin’s sister. Clive Thomas, a long-time Palin observer who’s writing a book on Alaska politics, said he’s not sure what the emails will contain — or whether their contents will affect people’s perceptions of Palin. “I guess most people, I think, who don’t like Sarah Palin are hoping there’s something in there that will deliver the final sort of blow to her (politically),” he said.

CONCORD (AP) — Public employees will pay more toward their pensions and some will work longer before retiring to spare New Hampshire taxpayers under legislation headed to Gov. John Lynch for signature. The House and Senate approved a compromise Wednesday that will shift more costs onto workers to spare state and local property taxpayers from paying an increasing share of rising pension costs. “This bill is difficult medicine. I will be the first one to say that,” said Senate Republican Leader Jeb Bradley, the bill’s prime sponsor. “The longer we wait, the worse the medicine will be.” But Senate Democratic Leader Sylvia Larsen said employers paid too little into the pension fund for years and now lawmakers are asking employees to pay more and, in some cases, work longer for a smaller pension. “We are asking them to pay for the failure of the state and local municipalities to pay their fair share over the years,” said Larsen, D-Concord. State Rep. Neal Kurk, R-Weare, complained during a brief House debate that the bill did not go far enough to reduce the system’s costs. “We shifted from employer to employee, but that is rearranging the deck chairs on the Titantic. It doesn’t change the direction of the ship,” said Kurk. Lynch had called on lawmakers to make changes to the system, but has not said if he will sign the bill. “The governor is going to be reviewing the bill very carefully,” Lynch spokesman Colin Manning said. Lawmakers believe that by raising employees’ contribution rates the state can stop a longstanding practice of subsidizing local public employee pension costs without causing municipal contribution rates to spike. The compromise calls for the New Hampshire Retirement System to recalculate employer rates to be sure that happens.

The state had been paying 35 percent of local pension costs, a longstanding practice meant to encourage municipalities to participate in the system. The state reduced its share to 25 percent in the current budget. The budget for the upcoming two years passed by the Senate last week eliminates the state’s share. At the 35 percent rate, the state’s share would be about $87 million in each of the next two years. The bill notes that legislation was enacted in 2007 to deal with the system’s unfunded liability, $2.7 billion at the time, but changes since make the reforms in the bill necessary. The system’s current unfunded pension liability is $3.7 billion plus an estimated unfunded medical insurance liability of nearly $1 billion. Vested employees are defined as those with 10 years in the system, contrary to arguments by some employee groups that workers with less than 10 years should have the same protections. Concern over losing benefits has led to hundreds of employees filing for retirement this year. Negotiators attempted to allay their fears by giving employees until Jan. 1 to become vested and escape many of the changes that would affect new hires and workers with less time on the job. Vested workers would pay higher pension contributions beginning July 1, but most changes would only apply to those hired after that date. Starting July 1, teachers, state and municipal workers would pay 7 percent instead of 5 percent. Firefighters’ contribution would rise from 9.3 percent to 11.8 percent. Police would pay 11.55 percent, up from 9.3 percent. Workers hired after July 1 would work longer besides paying higher contribution rates and not be able to boost their pensions like current workers. For example, newly hired state workers, municipal workers and see PENSION page 14

Laconia Harley’s 2011 ‘HOGS Against Hunger’ raffle will focus on feeding New Hampshire veterans By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

CONCORD — Partnering with the New Hampshire Food Bank, Laconia Harley-Davidson kickstarted the 88th running of Laconia Motorcycle Week yesterday by announcing its third “HOGS Against Hunger” campaign aimed at raising $40,000 by raffling a 2011 Harley Street Glide to help feed the state’s veterans. Anne Deli, who with her husband Steve owns the dealership, sold the first of the 4,000 tickets to Governor John Lynch on the Statehouse plaza, cheered by a dozen bikers undaunted by the threatening skies. Melanie Gosselin, executive director of the food bank, expressed her appreciation to the firm, which last year raised more than $30,000 for “Operation Backpack” to provide meals and snacks to deserving children throughout the summer. Calling Laconia Harley-Davidson “an invaluable community part-

ner,” she said that its “generosity is appreciated by everyone her at the Food Bank, the 412 agencies we serve and especially the veterans that are struggling to find their next meal.” She said that more than three million veterans go hungry across the country each day, many of them those who represent a third of all homeless Americans. “Just as our veterans were there for us,” said Lynch, “we need to be there for them, and this is another way we are doing that.” He praised the Delis, who he said “reflect all that’s good about business in New Hampshire.” Deli said that the company chose to assist veterans and their families because “we are saddened by the obstacles they face when they return from the front. Hunger,” she stressed, “should never be one of those issues.” She said that almost a third of all Harley-Davidson riders are veterans of the armed forces see next page

NEWT from page 2 week to confront a rebellion that had been brewing for some time among the senior echelon of his campaign. Two aides said Gingrich had refused a request to show a copy of his personal schedule. The aides, speaking only on condition of anonymity, also cited his willingness to give his wife a large role in campaign decisions as a reason for the departures. While Gingrich told his now-departed aides he would remain in the race, he faces formidable obstacles in assembling a new team in time to compete in a campaign that’s well under way. He has the allegiance of several former aides who served him when he was in Congress, but most if not all of them have moved into other fields. Most immediately, he is scheduled to participate in a debate next Monday in New Hampshire. Johnson and another key aide, strategist David Carney, joined Gingrich’s campaign after working as senior political staff members for Texas Gov. Rick Perry. Perry ruled out running for the White House earlier in the year, but more recently has said he might reconsider. It was not known whether his former aides were interested in returning to him. “Nothing has changed,” the governor’s spokesman, Mark Miner, said in an interview on Thursday. “The governor is focused on the legislative session.” Gingrich, 67, last served in public office more than a decade ago. He resigned as speaker of the House after two terms following an unexpectedly close midterm election in 1998 in which Republicans gained far fewer seats than he had predicted. In the years since, he has established a virtual one-man think tank, publishing books and speaking publicly. Gingrich announced his presidential exploratory committee in May and is not required to report the results of his campaign fundraising until mid-July. He has raised more than $52 million for American Solutions for Winning the Future, his nonprofit policy group that can legally accept unlimited donations. But presidential campaigns are subject to much stricter rules — a candidate can accept a maximum contribution of $2,500 per person for the primary campaign and $2,500 per person for the general election. In addition to Tyler, Johnson and Rials, aides who quit include senior adviser Sam Dawson, South Carolina director Katon Dawson, and New Hampshire director Dave Carney. The entire full-time staff in Iowa, six aides, also quit.

UNH academic ‘fellow’ working for Town of Moultonborough this summer MOULTONBOROUGH — Michael Branley was introduced to the Selectboard at its meeting of June 2 as the town’s first ever academic “Fellow”. He is expected to serve until the end of September. The majority of Branley’s time will be spent working on an analysis of which – if any – elements of the School Administrative Unit’s Athletic Department and the town’s Recreation Department might be merged. In addition, in an effort for him to benefit from having a well-rounded experience, Branley will also work on several minor assignments, ranging from analyzing the proper level of town reserve funds to exploring merit pay to the potential outsourcing of payroll functions for the town. Branley’s work is funded under a Management Fellowship Program intended to encourage people to enter the public administration profession. The program is a four way partnership between the local municipalities, the New Hampshire Local Government Center, the New Hampshire Municipal Managers’ Association, and the University of New Hampshire. The town’s cost is roughly $2,750 for the 400 plus hours of service anticipated. The Town of Moultonborough is one of three towns to host a Fellow for the summer. It was selected due

to the quality of its proposal and educational environment as well as the merit of the work items to be undertaken. After the town was chosen, Town Administrator Carter Terenzini participated in the process of selecting a fellow by serving on the interview panel along with representatives from the other towns selected, the NHLGC, and UNH. Branley is a life-long New Hampshire resident who is nearing completion of a Master’s Degree in Public Administration (MPA) at the University of New Hampshire. His resume includes working for the Governor’s Office of Citizen Services and the nonprofit nonpartisan Live Free or Die Alliance. He was selected from amongst several applicants for his work experiences, along with his understanding of organizational theory and local government administration. “I’m excited to bring my energy and experiences to the Town of Moultonborough and look forward to having a positive influence on the policy debate of the community,” commented Branley. Joel Mudgett, chairman of the Selectboard said, “We are pleased we are able to provide this opportunity to give real world training to the professionals of tomorrow to round out their classroom theory.”

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Violent storms have knocked out power to thousands of customers in New Hampshire. More than 20,000 of those outages were reported by New Hampshire Electric Co-op on Thursday afternoon in the central part of the state. Some of the hardest hit communities were Bridgewater, Groton, Wentworth, New Durham, Holderness, Plymouth

and Alton. Public Service of New Hampshire, the state’s largest utility, reported about 5,700 customers without power, mostly in the western part of the state. Unitil reported about 600 outages in the Concord area. National Grid said it has scattered outages. The storms were expected to move out by late Thursday, with calmer weather Friday.

previous seven years. New hires could not count any special duty pay in their pension calculations. Non-vested and new hires could not include buy-out or severance payments. The bill limits part-time workers to 32 hours a week before they would have to contribute to the pension system. An exception was made for retired police officers hired by communities seasonally for events such as motorcycle week in Laconia. The provision is intended to prevent doubledipping where retired police officers return to work and collect both a pension and a full-time salary. Negotiators agreed to stick with current law and allow retired workers to return to work if they suspend their pensions. The public pension system covers more than 50,000 active and nearly 26,000 retired state and municipal workers, teachers, police and firefighters.

teachers could not collect full retirement benefits until age 65. They could receive reduced benefits at age 60, if they have 30 years of service. Newly hired police and firefighters could not begin collecting a full pension until age 52½. They could retire at age 50 and receive a reduced pension with 25 years of service. Currently, they can retire at age 45, and that would not change for vested workers. Newly hired workers and workers who don’t have 10 years in the system on Jan. 1 would see earnings used in pension calculations averaged over their five highest paid years instead of three years, which is the current practice. Negotiators limited spikes in pension benefits paid to police who are paid for extra special duty assignments. The compromise would limit those earnings for police vested on Jan. 1 to the average paid over the

The Top 10 graduating seniors for 2011 BY GAIL OBER


GILFORD — On Saturday morning, the top 10 academic graduates of the 2011 class at Gilford High School will spread their wings far and wide and for the most part,they have a plan. From international relations for Alysa Hemcher at Pennsylvania State University to anthropology at the University of Denver for Andrew Kwist, each of this group of self-described close-knit friends will likely be on somebody’s Who’s Who list someday. “I think our generation has leaned to individuality,” said Bethany Clarke who will study English at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts. “We just don’t want to be a piece of the puzzle.” “We’ve learned it’s okay to be what we want to be,” said Carson Quigley who will study engineering and psychology at Bucknell University in Penn. All of them said they had grown especially close to each other in their junior and senior years because they

shared a great deal of Advanced Placement classes. They also said they enjoyed their senior year because of all the different classes they could choose in order to try new things. And while they all likely share different futures, Quigley and Benton Mitchell, who will attend Northeastern University in the fall, will be traveling throughout France and Spain this summer. Nearly all of the seniors, including Caitlyn Cennamo who will study pre-med at Johns Hopkins Univerity, Curtis Chapin who will study engineering at Mount Hoyloke College, Cameron Graaskamp who will study biochemistry at the University of New Hampshire, Sarah Rush who will study English at Brandeis University, and Jacob Tinkham who will attend the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma and study international political economics will work over the summer and save money for their educations. The Gilford High School graduation is scheduled for Saturday at 10 a.m. in the U.S. Cellular Meadowbrook Pavilion.

Belmont High School inducts three notables into Athletic Hall of Fame

BELMONT — The 10th annual Belmont High School Athletic Hall of Fame induction, organized by the Booster Club and held in conjunction with the Athletic Banquet, recently honored three notable new members. Inducted into the Hall of Fame this year was John Garneau, a social studies teacher and volleyball coach for more than 20 years; Bridgette Hooker, BHS Class of 2005; and Brendan Collins, BHS Class of 2005. Garneau taught at BHS for 27 years, during which time he started the girls’ volleyball program. His teams won seven state championships and four runner-up titles. He has a career record of 540 wins and 80 losses and was named New Hampshire Volleyball Coach of the Year ten times. Garneau is an inductee of the NHIAA Hall of Fame, NH Coaches Hall of Fame, and the Plymouth State Coaches Hall of Fame. Hooker was an accomplished four year varsity athlete in soccer, basketball, and softball at BHS. During her senior year she was captain of all three teams and named to the First Team All-State by both the NH Soccer Coaches Association and the NH Basketball Coaches Association. She is the top scorer in BHS girls’ basketball

history with 1,439 points. She took her considerable basketball talents to UMASS-Lowell where she attained numerous Northeast-10 Conference athletic and academic honors. She was awarded a B.S. degree in nursing in 2009 from UMASS-Lowell and is currently working in the medical field. Collins was an accomplished four year varsity athlete in cross country and indoor/outdoor track and field at BHS. He contributed to five state championship runner-up team titles for the school — three in cross country and two in outdoor track. He holds four BHS individual school records — two in outdoor track and two in indoor track. His performances at state level competition include state champion in the 800 (2005), and state runner-up in the 1600m (2005) and 800m (2004). At Boston College he competed in cross country and indoor/outdoor track for four years. He placed 2nd in the 2007 Millennium Mile, placed 9th in the 1000m event at the 2008 IC4A Indoor Track Championships, and was named to the 2009 All-New England Outdoor T&F Team. In 2009 he was awarded a Bachelor of Science degree and is presently engaged in Ph.D studies in biology at Northeastern University.

MEREDITH — The Hale Family of Meredith has announced the fourth annual Dexter Hale Memorial Golf Classic at Waukewan Golf Club with a 9 a.m. shotgun start on Friday, June 24. Once again, Meredith Village Savings Bank will be the primary sponsor for this much anticipated event. All proceeds will benefit the Rotary Scholarship Fund in Hale’s name. Dexter Hale was a beloved member of the Rotary who had perfect attendance at weekly meetings for more than 43 years and was a strong supporter of the scholarship fund. “MVSB has been a very generous supporter of this event since its inception,” said Ted Fodero of the Club, who has worked with the

family to establish this tournament. “We want to honor Dexter’s generosity, kindness, and long-time commitment to the Rotary Club, and there is no better way to do that than to include the game of golf, and the beautiful Waukewan Club, which Dex also truly loved.” Cost is $125 per person and includes greens fees, cart, continental breakfast, lunch, prizes, and special contests. There will be a special “$500 Shoot Out” at the end of the tournament. Pre-registration is recommended. For information and registration, call Ted Fodero at 279-4591, Craig Hale at 279-6661, or Vynnie Hale at 279-0557. Additional information can be found at, or

BERLIN — Northway Bank has announced the grand opening of its 17th banking center in Meredith. “The new Meredith banking center opening follows our deliberate plan of expansion throughout New Hampshire, offering the community banking experience to new and existing customers,” commented Richard Olson, director of consumer and small business banking. “Becoming an integral part of the Meredith community is the goal in adding to our presence in this part of the state. As an independent community bank, we differ from large regional or national banks because of our hands-on community-oriented approach. This ‘small town’ appeal, combined with our ability to offer the products and services that customers expect from a bank of any size, creates a winning scenario for our clients.” The new Meredith banking center is located at 42 Upper Ladd Hill Road and serves customers in both the lobby and drive-thru window Monday — Wednesday from 8:30 a.m. — 5 p.m., with extended hours on Thursday and Friday from 8:30 a.m. — 6 p.m. Saturday banking is available from 8:30 a.m. — 1 p.m. and Drive Up ATM service is available around the clock. Northway’s Meredith location will offer assistance with everything from opening a retirement account, to building a business, to buying a first home. A full team of commercial and small business specialists will be accessible in the office. Investment and mortgage representatives also will be available. “As our new neighbors in Meredith discover the difference in working with a community bank, we feel confident that they will welcome our alternative approach,” said Olson. “We look forward to serving them in all their banking needs.”

Pooch Café LOLA

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your number is eight because you are the eighth sign of the zodiac. When eight is placed on its side, it becomes the symbol for infinity. You’ll get a profound sense of the infinity of your own essence today. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). A deal you recently made may prove to be more effort than it was worth. Though you may not want to do another deal like this in the future, you wish those involved only blue skies, bird songs and happiness. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Standards of beauty change with time, culture and location. Therefore, the world is not a dependable judge of your true attractiveness. Let your attractive quotient be self-determined. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You use various ingredients to turn out a good product. The ingredient you will deal with today is a little like salad dressing in that it is easy to dress a salad and nearly impossible to undress it. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You sense that it’s sometimes appropriate, even crucial, to give until it hurts. And though that’s true, it’s not always true. For instance, right now it’s best to give comfortably and let others contribute in the same spirit. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 10). You’ll feel free. The wind fills your sail, and you go where your heart desires. A special relationship gains lovely momentum. In July, you earn extra money here and there, and the spare change adds up to a wonderful purchase. Take a professional leap in August. You’ll put a feather in your cap in November. Capricorn and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 24, 39 and 14.

by Richard Thompson

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Remember the thing you want that you cannot achieve alone. You will have the cooperation of your peers, especially if you are able to give them clear directions about what to do next. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You made a hasty decision in the past and will not repeat the mistake this time around. Go slow and think things through. Most importantly, if you don’t feel it completely, do nothing. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be the center of the excitement. Because of your energetic, daring mood, you are prone to surprises. Your unpredictable behavior is what keeps people on their toes around you. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You may find that you are stuck, and no matter how hard you push, you cannot seem to get unstuck. The solution: Stop pushing. Give to others from this stuck place. Your generosity will free you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You like to go under the radar at times, taking a break from being constantly “on.” Besides, right now there’s a friend or partner who needs attention, and you don’t want to steal this person’s spotlight. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You honor your talent by keeping track of your work. Develop a system of management that makes it easy to access your ideas and finished products. Your current system may be adequate, but you deserve better. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). A friend asks for your time and does not want or need your money. But this person might not completely understand how valuable your time really is. Set some limits in your own mind, and then enjoy the hours you have together.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, June 10, the 161st day of 2011. There are 204 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On June 10, 1921, President Warren G. Harding signed into law the Budget and Accounting Act, which created the Bureau of the Budget and the General Accounting Office. On this date: In 1610, Englishman Lord De La Warr arrived at the Jamestown settlement to take charge of the Virginia Colony. In 1861, during the Civil War, Confederate troops routed Union soldiers in the Battle of Big Bethel in Virginia. In 1907, eleven men in five cars set out from the French embassy in Beijing on a race to Paris. (Prince Scipione Borghese of Italy was the first to arrive in the French capital two months later.) In 1935, Alcoholics Anonymous was founded in Akron, Ohio by Dr. Robert Holbrook Smith and William Griffith Wilson. In 1940, Italy declared war on France and Britain; Canada declared war on Italy. In 1942, the Gestapo massacred 173 male residents of Lidice (LIH’-dyiht-zeh), Czechoslovakia, in retaliation for the killing of a Nazi official. In 1967, the Middle East War ended as Israel and Syria agreed to observe a United Nations-mediated cease-fire. In 1971, President Richard M. Nixon lifted a two-decades-old trade embargo on China. In 1985, socialite Claus von Bulow was acquitted by a jury in Providence, R.I., at his retrial on charges he’d tried to murder his heiress wife, Martha “Sunny” von Bulow. One year ago: Army Secretary John McHugh announced that an investigation had found that potentially hundreds of remains at Arlington National Cemetery were misidentified or misplaced. Today’s Birthdays: Britain’s Prince Philip is 90. Author Maurice Sendak is 83. Attorney F. Lee Bailey is 78. Actress Alexandra Stewart is 72. Singer Shirley Alston Reeves is 70. Actor Jurgen Prochnow is 70. Actor Andrew Stevens is 56. Singer Barrington Henderson is 55. Rock musician Kim Deal is 50. Singer Maxi Priest is 50. Actress Gina Gershon is 49. Actress Jeanne Tripplehorn is 48. Rock musician Jimmy Chamberlin is 47. Actress Kate Flannery is 47. Model-actress Elizabeth Hurley is 46. Rock musician Joey Santiago is 46. Actor Doug McKeon is 45. Rock musician Emma Anderson is 44. Rock singer Mike Doughty is 41. Rhythmand-blues singer JoJo is 40. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is 40. Rhythm-and-blues singer Faith Evans is 38. Actor Hugh Dancy is 36. Rhythm-and-blues singer Lemisha Grinstead (702) is 33. Actor DJ Qualls is 33. Actor Shane West is 33. Country singer Lee Brice is 32. Singer Hoku is 30.

Dear Annie: I met “Janice” through my son’s school. She’s a parent of one of his classmates. She would come to my house in the afternoon before picking up her kids. We would enjoy a cup of coffee and sit around and talk and laugh. When three days went by and I didn’t hear from her, I began to get worried. She didn’t answer her phone or reply to my text messages. Finally, she phoned and told me to stop calling her and to leave her kids alone. I was in shock. I asked her what was wrong, and she said she had received a letter in her mailbox. She refused to let me get a word in and hung up. I cried my eyes out. I asked a mutual friend to find out about that letter. Apparently, someone wrote that she was a bad mother and told her how to raise her kids. It was signed, “Anonymous.” I am stunned that Janice would think I could write such a thing. How can I make her understand that I had nothing to do with that stupid letter? Now she goes out of her way to avoid me in the carpool lanes at school. I want our friendship back. What can I do? -- Miss My Friend in Indiana Dear Indiana: Vicious people who hide behind anonymous notes and phone calls enjoy the havoc they wreak. It is cowardly. You can text or e-mail Janice, or leave a message on her answering machine or cell phone, saying you didn’t write this letter, you cannot imagine who did, and you miss her terribly. You also can ask mutual friends to intercede on your behalf. Still, if Janice is convinced you are the author, she may not be inclined to believe otherwise. And if she refuses to contact you, there is nothing more you can do. Sorry. Dear Annie: Every year, friends of ours have birthday parties at their homes and at bars. We usually can’t go because of other obligations, but when we do go, are we obligated to bring a gift? Or is a birthday card with well wishes suf-

ficient? If gifts are not expected and it is simply a fun get-together, shouldn’t they say “no gifts”? We enjoy seeing friends, but by having these parties every year, it seems they are only interested in presents. To find a gift that costs only a few dollars is practically impossible. Is it wrong to feel this way? Can we just bring a card? Should we skip the party altogether? -- B-Day Party Guest Dear Guest: People who like to celebrate their birthdays are inclined to do so once every year. In most instances, these are very informal events. If the party is at a bar, you can treat the birthday celebrant to a drink. At their house, bring a snack or a bottle of something. It would be a shame to avoid all such parties because you are fixated on the presents. Go and have a good time. Dear Annie: “Northern California” suspects that her daughter-in-law is sexually abusing her grandson, although she can’t prove it. Now the parents won’t let her see her grandchild. There is an organization called Guardian Ad Litem (GAL) that sometimes goes by the name CASA. This grandmother needs to call the hotline in her area for the Department of Children and Families. They are mandated to check out the call within 24 hours. She does not need to give her name. A judge will appoint a guardian to make sure the child is safe. Sometimes children are removed from the home and put in foster care or with a relative while the situation is worked out. -- A Concerned Friend Dear Concerned: The grandmother has already contacted Child Protective Services, an attorney, a therapist and a pediatrician. Perhaps your suggestion will make the difference. Thank you.
