Finally, a smooth ride on Watson Road Riders attending the 89th Annual Laocnia Motorcycle Rally are appreciating the recent paving job that has made the trip from Lakeside Avenue at Weirs Beach back up to Rte. 3 a much more enjoyable ride. During the heart of Bike Week, Lakeside Avenue is one-way north and the only way bikers are allowed to exit the area is to take Scenic Drive north until it curves into Watson Road, which then leads up the hill to the intersection between the Tamarack Drive In and the Broken Spoke Saloon. Scenic Avenue was repaved several years ago but Watson Road had remained a bone-jarring mogul ﬁeld. The rider pictured above is just transitioning from Scenic Road to Watson Road.

Son of J.D. Salinger stunned by Lynch’s veto of privacy bill
CONCORD (AP) — J.D. Salinger’s son said Wednesday he’s stunned that a bill aimed at protecting his late father’s privacy has been vetoed in New Hampshire, where the intensely private author of “The Catcher in the Rye” lived for decades before his death in 2010. The bill would have specified that a person’s right to control the commercial use of his or her identity is inheritable, and remains in effect for 70 years past death. It was filed at the request of Matt Salinger, who spent the last two years working with lawmakers to get it through the House and Senate. “I’m stunned and just hugely disappointed that Gov. (John) Lynch saw fit to veto something that was the result of thousands of hours of wellintentioned, diligent, bipartisan work,” Salinger told The Associated Press. He said the bill was in keeping with New Hampshire’s “Live Free or Die” motto, which was part of what led his father to settle in rural Cornish. see JD page 16

Employee using syringes to inject self & then patients said likely cause of hepatitis C outbreak at Exeter Hospital CONCORD (AP) — An employee misusing drugs is the most likely cause of an outbreak of hepatitis C among patients who were treated at the Exeter Hospital’s cardiac catheterization lab, New Hampshire’s public health director said Wednesday. “Based on all the testing we’ve done, based on all the interviews we’ve performed with employees and with patients, the review of the hospital data — all of this information points toward drug diversion as the most plausible explanation,” Dr. Jose Montero said. A total of 20 people, including a hospital worker, have been diagnosed with the same strain of the liver-destroying virus since the state began investigating the out-
break last month. Montero would not comment on the specific employee suspected of causing the outbreak or say whether law enforcement is involved, but he said drug diversion generally involves someone using a syringe to inject themselves with medication meant for patients and then reusing the syringe on patients. “This is really disturbing. We as a department want to make sure health care quality is maintained across the board,” he said. “Certainly this is a really unfortunate situation. Nobody goes to a health care facility expecting to get sick.” Hepatitis C is a viral infection transmitted by blood. It causes inflammation of the liver that can lead to chronic health issues.
The Exeter investigation began in midMay when four patients were diagnosed with an identical strain of the virus, and the only link officials could find was that all had been treated at the lab. Officials initially asked anyone treated at the lab since August to get tested; on Wednesday, Montero said that request has been expanded to include all of the lab’s patients since October 2010. The lab was closed for a week in late May but was allowed to re-open after authorities determined there was no evidence that disposable equipment was being misused, that no permanent equipment was contaminated and that there was no further see HEPATITIS page 16
BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) — One, a foster child, said he was threatened, warned he would never see his family again if he ever told anyone what happened. Another said he stayed quiet because he didn’t want to stop getting tickets to the hottest game in town — Penn State football. That was how two of Jerry Sandusky’s accusers explained the former Penn State assistant coach’s hold over them. “He told me that if I ever told anyone that I’d never see my family again,” the former foster child said Wednesday, the third day of testimony in Sandusky’s child
sexual abuse trial. He said it terrified him when Sandusky uttered the threat after the coach pinned him while wrestling in the basement of the Sandusky home and performed oral sex on him. Sandusky, 68, is charged with sexually abusing 10 boys over a 15-year period, accusations he has denied. His arrest last fall rocked Penn State and led to the firing of football coach Joe Paterno for not taking stronger action against Sandusky after allegations emerged a decade ago. Three of Sandusky’s accusers testified
Wednesday, bringing to five the number of them to take the stand. Tom Kline, the lawyer for one of them, told reporters outside the courthouse: “It’s just remarkable how many children one man can shower with.” The 25-year-old man who told jurors about the threat to keep him away from his biological family when he was younger said he believed Sandusky’s wife was inside the home, on a different floor, at the time. A foster child placed with another family, he occasionally stayed in the Sanduskys’ see SANDUSKY page 9

Bell tolls for government employee unions In 1919, after Boston police went on strike to protest the city’s refusal to recognize their new union, Gov. Calvin Coolidge ordered the National Guard into the streets. Sam Gompers, the legendary father of American labor, wrote the governor that the Boston police had been denied their rights. Coolidge’s terse reply put him in our history books: “Your assertion that the commissioner was wrong cannot justify the wrong of leaving the city unguarded. ... There is no right to strike against the public safety by anyone, anywhere, any time.” Ronald Reagan’s firing of the striking air traffic controllers, whose union had been among the few to endorse him, marked him as a leader willing to act against a powerful union if the public interest commands it. Gov. Scott Walker is now in that tradition. He has just routed a recall campaign that began with state senators disgracefully fleeing to Illinois rather than provide a quorum and mobs occupying his capitol. Walker’s victory is a fire bell in the night for the public-sector unions. It reflects a rising realization among all Western peoples that to continue accommodating the demands of government unions is to risk our survival as free and prosperous nations. The Badger State rout of Big Labor was total. The public-employee unions first capitulated to the governor’s demand that they contribute more to their pensions and health care benefits. But they drew the line at Walker’s determination to curtail collective bargaining and to cease deducting union dues from the paychecks of state workers. Collect your dues yourself, the governor was telling the unions. With their union dues no longer taken out of their paychecks, tens of thousands of Wisconsin public employees refused to pony up those dues and quit their union, instead. What does this tell us? Many union members do not believe they get their money’s worth from unions that claim to represent them, and would prefer to get out of the union and keep the dues money themselves. This desertion by their members represents a massive vote of no confidence in unions like the America Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, the Service Employees International Union and the American Federation of Teachers. AFSCME in Wisconsin lost 34,000 of its 62,000 members last year alone. From the Wisconsin experience, if right-to-work laws were enacted in every state, giving employees freedom to join or leave a union, public-employee unions would be abandoned, reduced to shadows of what they are today. What does it say about a union if its members would prefer not to belong, if they were free to leave?
The curtailment of collective bargaining is the issue on which Walker appeared to be on the weakest ground, as school kids are taught that collective bargaining is a sacrosanct right. Yet here, too, the governor has a compelling argument. When union leaders put piles of cash into political campaigns, and union bosses then sit down to bargain with the people they have just put into office, who represents the public? Is there not an inherent conflict of interest when unions literally purchase with campaign contributions the election of officials with whom they are to negotiate the new contracts for their members? There are other reasons publicemployee unions are losing public support. The pay and benefits of federal employees are twice that of the average private-sector worker, while the pay and benefits of state employees are half again as high. And government workers enjoy a job security few private-sector workers ever know. Unionized government workers are seen by almost no one as victims. Yet their numbers are huge. Where there were twice as many Americans working in manufacturing as in government in 1960, today the reverse is true. We have 22-million workers in government and 11-million in manufacturing. This is an immense and costly army for taxpayers to sustain. Even Democrats, though they howl that we must milk the rich more, are starting to concede that the government sector, now at a peacetime record 37-percent of the gross domestic product, must be pared back. The salad days of the government employee are coming to an end, as they have already in Greece, Italy and Spain. As Europe went farther down that “road to socialism” than did we, the pain there will be greater. But it is coming here, too. Already, states and cities have begun cutting their labor force. And the states that were most indulgent in providing pay and benefits their taxpayers could not afford are the states being hit hardest, like Barack Obama’s Illinois and Jerry Brown’s California. The anger and accusations of union leaders, directed at Gov. Walker, testify to their shocked awareness of the new political realities. And Obama’s conspicuous absence from the battlefield — he sent a tweet and did a flyover — testifies to his recognition that while government unions may be his loyal political allies, they are also an albatross hanging around his neck this November. (Syndicated columnist Pat Buchanan has been a senior advisor to three presidents, twice a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination and the presidential nominee of the Reform Party in 2000. He won the New Hampshire Republican Primary in 1996.)
LETTERS I want more than cheaper everything, consideration for health & safety To the editor, This week, Mr. Earle has written yet another letter attacking my positions and opinions expressed in previous letters and offering his opinions on the likely direction in the price of heating oil, the relative efficiencies and costs of generating power with coal or natural gas and the use of renewable/alternative platforms. I thank Russ Wiles for his letter which reiterated my opinion of the cartoon characters Dumya and Dumbo. “Bush squandered...our taxes and Obama doubled down”. We are certainly in agreement on that issue. I thought I made that clear in my letters of May 25 and June 4.. In one of those letters I took the time to thoroughly explore the issue of heating oil prices which Mr. Earle was predicting would rise. That those higher costs he wrote, “...I will give Obama full credit for”. But as per my predictions and explanations that Mr. Earle alleged in another letter he did not completely read, oil has dropped and continues to drop. As for that May 25 letter, I specifically mentioned the melt down of the European economy. I specifically named Spain as a major player among the usual suspects. In the June 12 edition of The Daily Sun the editor has devoted a near full page (14) to reporting on that situation in Spain that I referred to over two weeks ago as having now “Broken Out”. Perhaps Mr. Earle’s bone is to be picked by the intelligent letter recently written by Bob Kennelly. What Mr. Kennelly suggests is that there is some ethical interest in providing the latest high-tech emissions control devices on the flue gas products of coal fired power plants. As he points out this is a cost to rate payers. So in his latest letter, Mr. Earle has further impugned himself. He has not just grabbed some quote out of context and applied it to his own un-related purpose, but has clearly demonstrated that he is indeed ignorant of our U.S. commodities markets. Despite the glut in natural gas that currently exists in North America driving prices to modern day lows and recently below $2/MM~BTU, he asserts “natural gas is good too, even better ‘then’ coal but we simply do not have enough of it at this time...” This is just a plainly ignorant
tering coal plants that are like some fire trucks, too old to be worth retrofitting. Before the U S became the “Saudi Arabia of Natural Gas”, we were the Saudi Arabia of therm coal. Is it the Dumbo’s fault that customers of Vectren have had their rates rise? Before natural gas was in such a glut, before Obama was a U.S. Senator, that company decided coal was the future and made a long-term capital investment in purchasing their own coal mines. During the Dumya administration they saw the rise in the coming adaptation to cleaner natural gas by the utilities industry as that fuel was clearly increasing in popularity as it was seen probable to be dropping in price on supply and demand. They began the design and construction of $415-million in retrofits to their coal fired plants to upgrade to the current proposed Obama Clean Air standards for coal fired power plants. That was a market based decision made before Obama became president. Their rate payers are paying more not to be dumping excessive amounts of sulfuric acid and mercury on the New England environment. But their shareholders are now prospering as having previously given up bottom line results to capital improvements. It’s called investing in a future, but it was also a business decision as they were stuck with the legacy costs of having previously bought the coal mines. As previously upgraded, the company’s emissions already meet the current higher standards. If Mr. Earle just wants cheaper everything without some reasonable consideration to the health of the environment and health and safety of our citizens perhaps he would be in favor of the DOT eliminating the employer costs to facilitate the drug testing of CDL truck drivers and increase their legal operating alcohol levels from .04 to .08? They would certainly want to work longer overtime hours than current laws stipulate as well. They could carry heavier loads for sure. Steve needs to work on his grammar if he wants his letters to have more credibility and not be perceived of as rants. Steve, try adding “than” “cite” “they’re” and “verifiable” to your vocabulary.

LETTERS For key to what to do to revive economy go back to 1789 & 1876 To the editor, Yes, bad economics can cause depression, even very severe depression, not only among school students but among our citizens of all ages. The Laconia Daily Sun on Thursday, June 7, page 11, carried a well-written article about depression in and among school students in the Shaker school system, an economics that relates to the current, “bad” economics that we are in. However, if history is any guide, this kind of bad economy can be solved, and solved very quickly. Ask your teachers what happened to the economics in our nation in the years 1876 to 1879. When and if they “level’ with you you’ll know what needs to be done now. When and if they “level” with you they will tell you that the well being of the people, the people all across our nation, increased at the phenomenal rate of 20-percent per year, per year. And that today your financial prospects could also improve at the rate of about 20-percent per year, per year. Once your teachers level with you and give you that answer, then ask
them what happened to our nation’s economics beginning in 1789 and lasting to about the year 1800. That answer will reinforce the answer they gave you for the years that occurred about a century later during the years from 1876 to 1879. Once the necessary changes are made, just as they were made before in 1789 and in 1876, the well being of the students in the Shaker school system would begin to improve, almost as fast as turning a light switch lights up a dark room. All you have to do, is ask, and kept asking. If you are a parent, or a grandparent, you also can ask, just keep asking until you also get an answer that relates to what we did before. Once you have that answer, then you will know what needs to be done, now. (We need to do, the same thing as we did do, before.) Just so you students know, (and parents and grandparents) there is a solution just keep asking until somebody “level’s with you. Rep. Robert Kingsbury Laconia
Liberals only want more from government as less from lazy workers To the editor, Cab Vinton’s letter of June 12 was interesting and I believe it is one of his best. But some of the flaws demand an answer. 3rd paragraph: Steve was absolutely correct, and Cab is spouting nonsense. From there Cab drifted into the liberal “Government must support me” attitude, while trying to crawl around the issue. By his definition, when I was born in the Depression, in a wonderful family with no money, but hard working parents, growing own food, mom sewing all clothes, where we walked to church, schools, grocery stores, I must become a failure. But none of us saw it as other than an opportunity to learn, work, and progress. Clearing snow from neighbor’s walks, delivering papers on my bike, working in a
boat yard, later at soda fountain for a summer, clearly proved we ALL did better when we worked together. A summer job at Sperry Gyro Co., engineering improved aircraft display Gyros, was fascinating, although that showed me how bad government and unions could get at blocking progress. Then Cab makes the most obnoxious statement: “everybody opposes the equality of outcome”, showing his grossly negative hateful attitude! But, with that he is trying to tell us about his liberal Democrat friends who only want more from the government, and less from the lazy worker. But, why did he waste two columns to say what we already know about the liberal “pigs at the trough” attitude? Jack Stephenson Gilford

Two bikers came to the rescue for my wife; thank God for bikers! To the editor, Thank God for the bikers. I am one of those people who think if you want to ride a motorcycle and all meet some where to have some fun, go for it. The only thing that ever bothered me is the noise from the bikes. The other day my wife was parking her car in the Walmart parking lot and had quite a surprise. Just as she was completing her task a person in another vehicle came to a screeching stop in front of her. Started yelling at her words that can not be repeated in public. Then he aggressively backed out and flew around to park in back of her and continued his verbal assault
on her. Then came right up to my wife as she got out of her car, still yelling obscenities. My wife was quite shaken and all of a sudden two bikers came to her rescue and surrounded the person who was doing all the yelling. She mouthed the words thank you and went on her way. SO I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU to the two courageous bikers who came to her assistance and were so brave to step in. Who knows what would have happen if they had looked the other way. Way to go guys. D.

To the editor, With all the talk about religion of late, I would like to advance my own opinion best put by the Roman philosopher Seneca: “Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.” Thomas Jefferson also made a pointed statement, that religion (Christianity) has made the world half hypocrites and half fools. I would like to remind Mr Demakowski that the life and death of Jesus are not supported by any primary historical documents. All we get is handme-down stories written almost into the next century. The same was done with Islam (Hadiths) and Hinduism and probably countless more. Did you know that the “son of God” Mithras, and Isis and Krishna are all said to be born of virgins? Did you know that Mithras said I am the way? Did you know he said the only way to salvation was to eat of his flesh and drink of his blood? Even Hercules was born of the union of God and a human woman. It’s the same old story with different faces. And Krishna ascended into heaven in a fiery chariot on his last day! Just like Enoch!
Since the late 1800s, Biblical Archaeologists have tried to prove the Bible. What has emerged is exactly the opposite. There is no record of Jews in captivity. There isn’t any evidence of any Exodus of thousands in the Sinai. There is no evidence of a world-wide flood. There is no evidence for any Moses or Abraham. There was never any great Kingdom under David or Solomon. Just a big tribe. Even the Flood story is a Babylonian myth; a knock-off written circa 2000 BCE called the Epic of Gilgamesh. Every religion is a brother, sister, or cousin of another because they all come from human imagination and an attempt to “supernaturalize” our moral sense and our purpose in life. Instead, it perverts the moral sense with all kinds of speculative bells and whistles. How moral is slavery as regulated in the Bible. The ethnic cleansing of religion and tribes by Israelites? The killing of people with different Gods? I see a capricious monster when I read the old testament. In the beginning, man created God in his own Image. Crazy one day, loving the next.

Romney’s economy would look a lot like Europe’s; want that? To the editor, Mitt Romney’s new TV ad defends his record as governor of Massachusetts, touting strong leadership, reducing unemployment, and balancing every budget without raising taxes. WHAT HE DIDN’Y SAY: By law the budget of Massachusetts must be balanced. Massachusetts suffered the secondlargest labor force decline in the nation. Between July 2002 and July 2006 the U.S. Census Bureau estimated 222,000 thousand residents left Massachusetts for other states than came into it. This fact alone can explain the state’s declining unemployment rate while Romney was in office. During Romney’s leadership, Massachusetts lost 14-percent of its manufacturing jobs — double the rate that the nation as a whole faced. During
his tenure, Romney reduced allocations for state police and local sheriff’s departments. He deleted spending on suicide prevention, emergency food aid, job training, higher education and services for victims of sexual assault and domestic violence. His reasoning was: The state couldn’t afford it. Look at Europe. The policy of austerity and budget cutting as a means to stimulate the economy is a failure in Europe. Mr. Romney agrees with the Ryan Plan which will drastically cut federal spending and entitlement programs. If Romney were to be successful with this plan America would be looking at the same recession that Europe is already struggling with. Do we want that for America? Cathy Dawson Laconia
Eating out here is lot better experience than it was in Florida To the editor, When my wife and I moved to New Hampshire after living in Florida for over 20-years, we had to change our habits. We have discovered that eating out in N.H. can be quite an experience. We like to go to breakfast on Saturday; where would we go? We found Pauli’s in Tilton and have been regulars for 5+ years. Pauli’s has the best breakfast and a collection of characters. We love pizza. Where is the best
pizza? The answer is the Homestead in Bristol. Love it, it is super and they will make it how you want it. Next on the list was a hamburger. The best burger in the state is found at Ciao Pasta in Franklin. Please note they have great Italian food. I just wanted to share my story, eating in N.H. definitely beats Florida. FYI: I do not work at or own any of these places. Jim Mayotte Sanbornton
Survivor of Arizona shooting wins Giffords’ House seat PHOENIX (AP) — Ron Barber, who almost lost his life in the Arizona shooting rampage that wounded former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, won a special election to succeed her, giving Democrats a psychological boost after last week’s failed effort to recall Wisconsin’s Republican governor. Appearing with Giffords at a Tucson
hotel after his victory Tuesday night, Barber told supporters, “Life takes unexpected turns and here we are, thanks to you.” Giffords hugged him and kissed his forehead. Barber defeated Republican Jesse Kelly, who narrowly lost to Giffords in 2010 in a competitive district that see next page

N.H. Liquor officer argues Drew is ‘bad operator’ & shouldn’t have license Gilford club owner’s lawyer counters that long state investigation produced little solid evidence of violations By Michael Kitch CONCORD — The fate of the state liquor license to Will Drew, the owner of Kelsey’s at the Grant, the nightspot last known as Mardi Gras North, rests with the New Hampshire Liquor Commission after closing arguments in revocation proceedings brought by the Enforcement Division of the commission concluded here yesterday. Drew’s live entertainment permit granted by the town of Gilford is tied to his holding a liquor license. The proceedings follow the arrest of five exotic dancers employed at the nightspot on charges of drug trafficking at the club during a raid mounted by the Attorney General’s Drug Task Force and Belknap County Special Operations Group last October 18, which led to the closure of the business in December. A subsequent report by Liquor Commission cited
Drew, who was not the owner of the business but was the holder of the license, with a half dozen violations of state liquor laws. The charges include serving intoxicated patrons, employees drinking while working, providing customers free drinks, refilling bottles, failing to sell sufficient food and, above all, using or allowing the premises to be used for an illegal purpose. Representing Drew, Laconia attorney David Bownes began by recalling the events of last October, noting that the raid followed an investigation lasting five months aimed at finding the management of the club, in league with an “outlaw” motorcycle club, engaged in the sale of illicit drugs. But, he insisted that after a thorough search of the building the only drugs found were on the persons or in the property of exotic dancers and three occasional patrons of the club. Conceding that one of the five
from preceding page Republicans have won in the last two presidential elections. Giffords has made few public appearances since resigning in January to focus on her recovery, but she dashed back to Tucson during the campaign’s final days to help her former district director. Democratic officials were quick to argue that the victory sets the stage for them to win back control of the House. “This campaign previewed the message fight that will play out across the country in November:
Democrats committed to protecting the middle class, Social Security and Medicare versus misleading Republican attacks on Obamacare and national Democrats,” said Rep. Steve Israel, D-N.Y., chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. But Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Texas, the chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, said special elections are unique and the Arizona race was particularly so because of what had happened to Giffords.

dancers, Shauna Martin, suggested that the manager Autumn Ylvisaker was aware of the transactions, he said that “they conducted an investigation for five months and that’s the best they’ve got.” Bownes recalled that agents of drug task force, working undercover, conducted almost three dozen controlled purchases of drugs from the dancers and of the transactions closed at the club law enforcement officers initiated all but three. Moreover, he reminded the commission that officers testified that their transactions and conversations with the dancers were handled discreetly and surrepticiously, not openly. “Management was not aware and did not condone drug dealing,” Bownes claimed. Bownes also disputed most, but not all, of the alleged violations of state liquor laws. Detective Stephen Lee, the member of drug task force responsible for observing these violations, reported patrons were overserved, but testified to seeing two intoxicated individuals who were both escorted from the club. He acknowledged that Martin reported a patron who bit her during a private dance also appeared drunk, but said that he was also removed from the premises. Although agents of the drug task force said they received free drinks, Bownes said that there was no evidence presented to indicate they were given to other patrons. “There are always difficulties with gentelmen’s clubs, or to be politically correct, adult entertainment clubs,” Bownes said, suggesting that the evisee next page

GILFORD — A poor economy and the stress that comes with it is contributing to an increase in reportable police contacts said Chief Kevin Keenan at his quarterly update to selectmen last night. Keenan said call volume has gone up by 751 calls for service with marked increases in reports of domestic violence and drug and alcohol abuse. “Much of this is part and parcel to stress from the economy,” Keenan said. In the 12-months since the June 2011 update, Keenan told selectmen that there were 9,239 calls for service. In 2012, it has topped 10,000. Most significantly, the town had seen a doubling of the number of drug-related incidents from 15 in 2011 to 35 in 2012. Conversely, the number of traffic stops has decreased, largely, said Keenan, because his officers are occupied with other crime. In other related police matters, after doing some research into acquiring military surplus, Lt. Kris Kelley asked for and received permission to investigate the possibility the department may be eligible for a used and free High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle, commonly called a Humvee. Kelley said the Law Enforcement Support Office of the federal government is making much of their used surplus available to and for local law enforcement. He said the intent of the department, should it qualify for such a purchase, would be to use the Humvee for very limited reasons — primarily inclement weather, to travel to places police vehicles typically can’t reach, and to move barricades and items taken into evidence that don’t fit into existing police vehicles. Selectmen said they liked the idea of seeking free stuff from the federal government, suggesting he look for some copiers to replace the dead and dying ones in two departments, from preceding page dence failed to support the gravity of the allegations. “Willard Drew is a pretty decent person,” began Eddie Edwards, chief of enforcement, “but he is bad operator.” He stressed that New Hampshire licenses restaurants, not a gentlemen’s club. “Mr. Drew was running anything but a restaurant,” he charged. “for three years he did not serve food,” he continued, adding that a liquor inspector found that the management of the club incapable of preparing and serving meals. He displayed a copy of the menu, remarking that it bore no relation to reality. Likewise, Edwards posted a copy of the club’s rules for dancers, saying that just as there was no food to match the menu, the rules were published but not enforced. Citing Martin’s testimony, he said that management allowed one of the dancers to use and sell drugs at the club and recalled that one of the agents was told that Ylvi-
but said they wanted the taxpayers to know that the acquisition would be free and that, other than routine maintenance, there would be no cost to them. Kelley said should such a purchase become possible, police would use a radio from an retired cruiser as well as retrofit light bars from other retired police vehicles. He said a relative of one of his officers has a brother in the auto body business who would paint it flat black for free and that he would get more information about decals and report back. Keenan also said the new police cruiser, a Ford Interceptor, should be on the road by Friday. He also reported that two of his officers are now certified motorcycle officers. Gilford typically replaces two cruisers annually but in 2011 only replaced one and in 2012 voters chose to replace one cruiser and lease the motorcycle in lie of the second cruiser. Keenan said the fuel savings are noticeable and the motorcycle officer does everything a squad car officer does except transport people who get arrested. On the negative side, Keenan said his overtime budget is higher than he would like to see and attributes much of it to overtime paid for court-related matters. As an example, he said in one recent case an officer was scheduled to testify and spent the entire day in court waiting to do so. The court never got to the officer’s testimony and he needed to return to court the next day. Keenan also told selectmen that many of the Motorola car radios are 10-years-old or more and that Motorola only guarantees replacement parts for 10 years. While his department is fairly adept at reusing parts from available radios, he wanted selectmen to know about the issue and said he would like to meet with the Budget Committee as soon as possible to discuss possible replacements in next year’s budget. saker herself took pills from employees. Edwards said that 22 of thee 33 controlled buys of drugs took place at the club. “This was a location that harbored this type of activity,” he insisted. Edwards told the commissioners there was plenty of evidence to support the allegations that liquor laws were also violated and again described Drew as “a bad operator. It was his responsibility to comply with the law and only his responsibility,” he continued. “he is asking you to behave as he did and ignore the rules, the state’s rules and the state’s laws. You are left with no choice,” he concluded, “but to revoike his license. He’s not capable of running a licensed establishment.” The commission is expected to issue its decision within the next two weeks. Meanwhile, under an agreement reached with the commission and the town Drew is serving beer and wine and offering live entertainment — but no exotic dancing. He described business as “very, very slow.”

Greater Meredith program celebrates official opening of Courtyard on Main By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
MEREDITH — The Greater Meredith Program Design Committee held a dedication ceremony and ribbon cutting Monday evening for the recently completed Courtyard On Main project at which it unveiled a permanent plaque listing volunteers and donors who helped accomplish the project. Bev Lapham, who co-chaired the volunteer project along with Nancy Lavigne, said that the two-year project ‘’turned an ugly looking strip into an incredible place’’ and credited the cooperation between private landowners and the town of Meredith with making the project possible. He said the project’s estimated cost was $39,000 with a large part of that cost needed to tear up the asphalt walkway and replace it with pavers as well as install irrigation and drainage. ‘’With the cooperation of the Main Street owners, Hampshire Hospitality Holdings and the Town of Meredith and contributions from major donors, the Meredith Rotary Club, Meredith Village Savings Bank, Hampshire Hospitality Holdings and the GMP Beautification Fund, plus many more donations from residents and friends, the project is now completed,’’ said Lapham, He said that design volunteers Christopher P. Williams Architects and Nancy Lavigne worked closely with Matt Bickford of Bickfords Landscape & Design and community volunteers to complete the project in time for Monday’s ceremony. Lapham said two creative installations were added to the space, one a Granite State Stone donated by Christine Hodecker-George, owner of Gallery 51 at 51 Main Street, a large granite rock whose outline resembles the State of New Hampshire. He said the large rock was transported to the site by Gilbert Block Crane Service of Laconia. The second piece is an original stainless steel and SANDUSKY from page 2 basement in State College in the late 1990s. Speaking in a calm but sometimes hesitant voice, he said Sandusky later apologized for the threat: “He told me he didn’t mean it and that he loved me.” The man, identified in court papers as Victim 10, said Sandusky also assaulted him on other occasions in 1998 and 1999, including once at a pool and another time in the basement. He said he was about 11 at the time. An expressionless Sandusky sat mostly still at the defense table during his testimony, occasionally turning his head to look the accuser in the eye. The accuser is one of two who came forward after Sandusky was initially charged in November with assaulting eight boys. Sandusky’s attorneys have suggested his accusers have financial reasons for coming forward. Under cross-examination, the man testified that he was the roommate of another Sandusky accuser at a camp sponsored by Sandusky’s charity, The Second Mile. He also acknowledged spending nearly two years in prison for a robbery and involvement with drugs and alcohol but said he is doing better now. “I’m married. I’m expecting” a child, he said. Another boy, dubbed Victim 8, has never been located, and his identity

copper sculpture titled “Spirit’s Daughter” sculpted by Meredith artist Steven Hayden and which pays tribute to the natural beauty and bounty of the lakes. Lapham said that with the addition of wrought iron benches designed by Winnipesaukee Forge owner David Little and artist Steve Hayden, two
antique-style lamp posts and colorful landscaping, The Courtyard on Main will be a pleasant place in town where residents and visitors can sit, relax and view works of art as well as having an attractive connection between Main Street and Mill Falls shopping and parking areas.
is a mystery to prosecutors, but jurors heard about his alleged sexual abuse by Sandusky anyway. Judge John Cleland ruled that a co-worker of Penn State janitor Jim Calhoun could testify about what Calhoun told him in November 2000. Calhoun is now suffering from dementia. The co-worker, Ron “Buck” Petrosky, said that when he encountered Calhoun in a football team locker room, the janitor told him he had seen Sandusky — he didn’t realize it was a famous coach — making a boy perform oral sex on him. Petrosky
said Calhoun’s face was white and his hands were trembling. “He said, ‘Buck, I just witnessed something in there I’ll never forget the rest of my life ... that man that just left, he had the boy up against the shower wall, licking on (him),” Petrosky testified. Also Wednesday, another man, identified as Victim 5, said he met Sandusky at Second Mile Camp in 1999 and began attending Penn State games with Sandusky and others. In 2001, he said, Sandusky see next page

A streetsweeper collects sand which Meredith Department of Public Works employees spread over Route 3 to mitigate a hydraulic fluid spill that quickly turned the road slick on Wednesday. (Laconia Daily Sun photo/Adam Drapcho)
SPILL from page one the dealership. The truck is operated by Precision Motor Transport Group, a Michigan-based company. The driver of the truck noticed the leak and notified the dealership, which immediately called the Fire Department, according to general manager Roger Lovering, who said response was near-immediate. “They were right on it,” he said. Despite the quick reaction, the high-pressure leak sent gallons of fluid onto the dealership’s lot, which was wet from rain. The hydraulic fluid quickly spread over the surface of the wet asphalt, flowed onto Route 3 and covered both lanes of travel. “It gave it a slick surface, so we immediately shut the road down,” said Fire Chief Ken Jones. Once traffic had been diverted around the hazardous stretch of road, he said, “our efforts were, at that time, protect the environment.” His crews used oil-absorbing
materials to contain the fluid and, with help from the town’s Department of Public Works department employees, spread sand across the roadway to absorb the contaminant. A street sweeper then collected the sand and fire crews washed the road clear of any remaining gravel. “We want to prevent any hazards to bikes.” The driver of the truck estimated that two gallons were lost; Jones thought that the leak was more like five gallons. In any case, an investigation of drainage areas and and catch basins downstream of the spill indicated that most of the fluid was recovered through the various mitigation efforts. “We really did not find a whole lot of material,” he said, only “trace” amounts were identified in a nearby stream. “We feel we pretty much contained most of the spill.” The effected section of Route 3 was closed for about two hours while the clean-up was underway.
from preceding page asked him to work out at a gym on campus and then groped him in the showers. Fighting back tears, he testified that Sandusky “kept lurching forward, but I didn’t have anywhere to go. I felt his penis on my back.” He said Sandusky touched his genitals “and then he took my hand and placed it on his.” Afterward, the 23-year-old man said, Sandusky drove him home and made “no eye contact” with him. They had no contact since. Another witness, identified as Victim 7, said he was 10 when he met Sandusky through the charity in 1995. He said Sandusky showered with him repeatedly and embraced him during sleepovers.
Sandusky was “wrapping himself around me, holding me tightly” when he slept over at the man’s house, the 27-year-old man said. He said he now has an aversion to chest hair because of his contact with a sometimes-shirtless Sandusky, who has acknowledged he showered with boys but says he never molested them. The accuser also described Sandusky rubbing his nipples and touching him beneath his shorts. The man recalled attending Penn State football games with Sandusky’s family and receiving free tickets from Sandusky as recently as 2009. “I was kind of ashamed about it. I didn’t want anybody to know,” he said. “Probably most importantly, I didn’t want my parents to keep me from going to games. I didn’t want them to sort of freak out.”

Roof replacement work at Pleasant Street School will cost $20,000 BY GAIL OBER
LACONIA — Six companies submitted bids to the Laconia School District for replacing the roof at the Pleasant Street Elementary School and at $19,975, S & W Roofing of Concord submitted the winning bid. Business Administrator Ed Emond said the bids ranged from $40,000 down to the $19,975. In addition, the committee voted to include a $2,500 option to put metal over the wooden part of the fascia, meaning the district won’t have to continually paint the area. “That will certainly save us some maintenance money,” said Committee Chair Beth Arseanault. Emond said the portion of the roof that is being replaced was not replaced during the most 2001 renovation of the school but rather shingling the portion of the roof that was
done about 15 years ago. Emond said the old roof had a 10-year warranty but the roof that will be installed comes with a 30-year one. The reasons for the repairs, which have been planned since November, are the existing shingles are curling. At this point, there has been no water or snow damage to the interior of the building and the Emond said getting the repairs done now, will prevent future damage. He said the project is expected to take four to five days. He said the money was trasferred into the maintenance budget by the School Board in November but the district needed to wait until spring to begin the work. During yesterday’s Facilities Committee meeting, Arsenault said she was really happy with the $20,000 bid because the board had thought anticipated the job would cost more.
PLYMOUTH — Four incumbents won re-election to seats on the New Hampshire Electric Cooperative (NHEC) Board of Directors, company officials announced June 12 at the 73rd Annual Meeting of Members. Returning to the Board for threeyear terms are Kenneth A. Colburn of Meredith, Dave Talbot of North Woodstock, Sharon Davis of Campton and Charles R. “Chuck” Braxton of Meredith. Members also voted 5,783 to 485 to approve a number of minor amendments to the NHEC Bylaws. Board members were elected by NHEC members, who cast ballots annually to fill seats on the 11-member Board of Directors. NHEC is a democratically-controlled cooperative. All NHEC members are eligible to vote or run for election to the Board
of Directors. This year, 6,854 members cast ballots. The election results were announced at the annual meeting at Prospect Hall on the campus of Plymouth State University. Prior to the meeting, approximately 120 members and guests enjoyed a spaghetti dinner provided by Sodexo Catering.

Victim of Tuesday motorcycle accident in front of Funspot identiﬁed by State Police LACONIA — State Police have identified Joseph Camara, 43, of Lowell, Mass. as the victim of a violent motorcycle accident in front of Funspot at the Weirs on Tuesday afternoon. Camara was transported by helicopter to Maine Medical Center in Portland for treatment of injuries suffered in collision. His condition on Tuesday night was listed as stable. According to a police report, Camara had just exited the Funspot parking
lot, headed toward Meredith on Rte. 3, when he immediately rode into the back of a 2002 Dodge Caravan being driven by Richard Gaynor of New Hampton. Camara was thrown into the back on the van and his custom-built motorcycle caught fire. Witnesses to the accident are asked to call Trooper First Class John Curran at Troop E in Tamworth, 603223-8838.
Meredith bike accident victim flown to Dartmouth MEREDITH — A Massachusetts man was taken by helicopter to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center Tuesday afternoon after he lost control of his motorcycle, fell and landed near the middle of Route 25 near Citizens Bank. According to Meredith Police, it
had just started raining and the wet road contributed to the fall of John O’Connell of Westfield, Mass. Witnesses to the crash said O’Connell was operating normally and at following traffic at a normal speed.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — Although Bike Week festivities have spread well beyond the city’s limits, the epicenter of the event, now in its 89th year, remains at Weirs Beach. For those who want to take in the spectacle, there’s no substitute for Lakeside Avenue lined by hundreds of motorcycles or the Weirs Beach Lobster Pound and its tent city of vendors. With promises of perfect late-spring weather for the coming weekend, conditions seem prime for a busy close of the annual motorcycle really. With the crowds will come traffic, though, and payto-park lot operators have historically responded to higher demand by raising prices. For those looking to skip the congestion and get right to the main event, two local transportation companies offer alternative services that drop passengers off right at Weirs Beach. They may not be more economical than paying to park, but they offer a distinctly more pleasant experience than fighting traffic. The companies are Cruise NH and the Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad. Jim Morash, general manager of Cruise NH, said the company’s flag ship M/S Mount Washington

remains docked at Weirs Beach for the duration of Bike Week, where it serves as a floating entertainment center. The company’s smaller vessels, though, are pressed into service as shuttles from Meredith town docks to the Weirs. “We’ve been doing it quite a while, well over 10 years,” he said. “It’s very popular.” For $15 per person (round trip), passengers board in Meredith and enjoy a half-hour cruise to the Weirs. Once they’ve seen the sights, they can catch a boat ride back to Meredith. There are also some passengers who will take the trip in the opposite direction — people at the Weirs who want to visit Meredith, such as the Laconia Harley-Davidson dealership, the neighboring Hart’s Turkey Farm and the vendors who set up there. Starting at 10 a.m. this morning and continuing until 9 p.m. tonight, the Doris E. boat, a 125-capacity vessel, will depart from Meredith every hour on the hour. The boat will depart Weirs Beach and return to Meredith on the half-hour. On Friday and Saturday, the boat will begin an hour earlier and will run later, as late as 10 p.m. from Meredith and return trips from the Weirs will run as late as 1:30 a.m. On Sunday, the boat shuttle will run from 9 a.m. to see next page

Water Council upholds decision to keep water level of Lake Waukewan at higher mark of 540 feet By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
CONCORD — The Water Council, a panel that hears appeals of decisions made by the Water Division of the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services voted four-to-two yesterday to reaffirm the decision by the Dam Bureau to set the operating level of Lake Waukewan during the summer recreational season — from May 15 until Columbus Day —at 540 feet above sea level. In 2009, DES decided to consider the operating level after heavy rainfall led to high water in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009, prompting waterfront property owners to report adverse impacts to both the environment and property throughout the watershed. A year later, after two public forums and an opinion survey, DES introduced an interim operation plan prescribing that the lake be maintained at 539.5 between June 1 and November 1 with the assurance that a final decision would be issued in the spring of 2011. The interim decision immediately divided shorefront property owners on Lake Waukewan and Lake Winona. Some complained that low water hindered docking and launching boats, posed navigational hazards and devalued shorefront property. Others claimed that high water flooded property, covered beaches , killed trees, eroded shorelines. At two public meetings that summer, 52-percent of those attending preferred a level above 539.5 feet. Likewise, petitions and surveys of residents of Lake from preceding page noon, from Meredith on the hour, and return trips will run from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Although the Doris E. will be the primary shuttle, Morash said smaller boats, such as the Sophie C. mail boat and a vessel used to transport summer campers to and from Bear Island will also be employed as demand rises. “There’s plenty of room,” he said. “What we try to do is do what we do best, run boat trips and make them available to people.” Yvetter Bugeaud said the Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad has been running shuttles to Bike Week since the mid-1990s, a service which was requested by the City of Laconia. Over the years, Bugeaud said the train rides have built a loyal base of customers. “They don’t want to sit in traffic,” she explained.
Winona and Lake Waukewan indicated that comparable majorities on both lakes favored a higher level. Property owners remained at odds when DES rendered its final decision setting the operating level at 540 feet in April, 2011 and proponents of a lower level appealed to the Water Council, which after a thorough review lasting almost a year upheld the bureau’s original decision. The Waukewan watershed stretches over 13-square-miles and consists of two lakes — Waukewan and Winona — joined by the Snake River and three ponds — Hawkins, Bear and Otter. Flanked by steep hills to the east and west and fed by six streams, Lake Winona rises rapidly while a beaver dam on the Snake River and the level of Lake Waukewan limit the pace at which it empties. The dam at the Inn at Mill Falls, owned and operated by Rusty McLear of Hampshire Hospitality Holdings, Inc., has very limited discharge capacity compared to the extent of the watershed. Consequently, with rainfall the lakes rise quickly and empties slowly. In setting the operating level DES sought to balance the desire of shorefront residents and recreational boaters for more water against the need to compensate for meager discharge capacity by providing sufficient storage to mitigate the property damage and environmental impacts of prolonged high effects of prolonged high levels.To strike that balance, the decision specifies that “to protect the habitat and property along the shoreline of both see next page
The Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad runs shuttles from two directions: one departing from Maple Street in Meredith, another from Lakeport Square in Laconia. The Meredith route will be in operation Thursday through Sunday, while the Lakeport leg will only be offered on Friday and Saturday. See hoborr.com for scheduling information, or call 7452135. Round-triip ickets to ride the train cost $15 for adults or $10 for children. According to Bugeaud, the Meredith route has proven especially popular with visitors from Canada, while the Lakeport route is mostly used by local residents. Her favorite thing to hear patrons say is, “The best part of Bike Week is riding the train.” Whether they come from near or far, she added, “We appreciate everyone who comes and rides with us.”

Democrat Arsenault challenging Accornero in new Laconia-Belmont House district LACONIA — Democrat Beth Arsenault yesterday entered the race for the new seat in the New Hampshire House of Representatives shared between the city of Laconia and the town of Belmont, the so-called floterial District 9 in Belknap County. Arsenault, who has served on the School Board for the past 14 years,
twice ran unsuccessfully for the state Senate before being elected to the House, where she she served two terms from 2006 to 2010. Earlier incumbent Republican Representative Harry Accornero of Laconia filed to run in District 9. As yet no candidate of either party from Belmont has bid for the seat.
BELMONT from page one he didn’t specify any “corrupt, fraudulent, or otherwise unlawful act. Barry also said there is nothing in RSA 91 A, the N.H. Right-To-Know Law, that a legal action must be field in court for the selectmen to enter into a non-public session. He quoted directly from the law that said a government board may enter into a nonpublic session for “consideration or negotiation of pending claims that have been threatened in writing or filed against the public body....” Barry also said RSA 91 A makes no requirement that a quorum of members be present at a nonpublic session an other argument Condodemetraky made in his pleading. At issue was the claim that Pike, who was covered by his town employee wife’s health insurance until their divorce, was made to pay his share of the premiums under the provisions of the federal COBRA Act that provides for extended insurance coverage for a period of time after a person is somehow separated from his or her source of health insurance. Pike claimed that because there was no written policy in the town that specifically addressed the issue “the practice complained of in terms of providing health insurance relative to divorced spouses of town employees was one of long-standing and practice, adopted an utilized prior to the election or appointment of any for the respondents to their offices within the town of Belmont.” Pike was married to current Town Clerk Cynthia DeRoy who, at the time of their divorce in 2006, was an employee of the town and now its elected Town Clerk. According to the
town, Pike, who was self-employed, was “incorrectly instructed by a town employee that he was required to be removed from his ex-wife’s health insurance, requiring him to incur substantial expense to secure his own health insurance. In a footnote the first response by the town, the employee who gave Pike that information denied she had done so. The town allowed that Pike and Atherton had shared a two-person plan and, following the divorce and her switch to a single plan, the town saved some money. Belmont said that Pike and Atherton’s case was different from most because it was not a family plan — plans that typically insure more than a husband and wife and whose premiums remain consistent regardless of the number of people insured. Since the agreement to pay Pike, the town has adopted an official policy that would require a divorced spouse of a town employee to pay his or her share of any incurred expenses if the non-employee wishes to take advantage of the COBRA provision of federal law. Pike voted to support the new policy and to grandfather those whose insurance was being paid by the town before the new policy. Condodemetraky said he personally hasn’t lost anything however he feels the taxpayers have lost a lot. “I also beleive that if someone has a claim against a town, the taxpayers have a right to know what it is,” he said. “This is negative for the taxpayers and positive for the people who run the town. They can do whatever they want,” he continued. “I thought I was doing the right thing but the court felt otherwise.”
Gangster who was inspiration for ‘Goodfellas’ dies in LA LOS ANGELES (AP) — Henry Hill spent much of his life as a “goodfella,” believing his last moment would come with a bullet to the back of his head. In the end he died at a hospital after a
from preceding page lakes, DES is requiring that the operations of the dam be timely and aggressive so that Lake Waukewan is maintained at as consistent an elevation as possible.” In addition, the decision stipulates that to reduce the frequency and extent shoreline flooding in the spring, the lake will be drawn down to 538.5 feet. The drawdown will begin on Columbus Day with the goal of filling the lake to its summer level by May 15. Anyone choosing to challenge the decision have 30 days to ask the Water Council to rehear the case and, if the request is denied, may appeal to the New Hampshire Supreme Court.
long illness, going out like all the average nobodies he once pitied. Hill, who went from small-time gangster to big-time celebrity when his life as a mobster-turned-FBI informant became the basis for the Martin Scorsese film “Goodfellas,” died Tuesday at age 69, longtime girlfriend Lisa Caserta told The Associated Press on Wednesday. Hill had open heart surgery last year and died of complications from longtime heart problems related to smoking, she said. “He was a good soul towards the end ... he started feeling remorseful,” she said. An associate in New York’s Lucchese crime family, Hill told detailed, disturbing and often hilarious tales of life in the mob that first appeared in the 1986 book “Wiseguy: Life in a Mafia Family,” by Nicholas Pileggi, a journalist Hill sought out shortly after becoming an informant.

JD from page 2 “My father moved there in the ‘50s because it was beautiful but also because of a certain kind of respect for individual rights. He basically wanted to be left alone and do his work, and New Hampshire, he quickly sensed, respected that,” Salinger said. Salinger said he hoped to extend that respect by preventing the inappropriate commercial exploitation of his father’s name and image. While his father’s picture has ended up on everything from pencils to coffee mugs, Salinger described two T-shirts in particular to make his case. One featured a photo taken by someone who ambushed the elderly Salinger as he collected his mail several years ago. “A photographer literally jumped out of the bushes on top him ... then took this picture as my father was recoiling,” he said. “My father looked terrified, looked angry, looked startled and looked a bit haunted. It’s a terrible photograph, but that wasn’t enough for this person who made these T-shirts. He then went in ... and made his eyes bright red, and made his face yellow — just made him look more freakish and wild.” Another T-shirt features a photo of a young, handsome Salinger, the same photo that now hangs above his son’s desk. “That photograph to me is every bit as upsetting HEPATITIS from page 2 risk of transmission via lab employees, Montero said. State and local health departments aren’t required to report such outbreaks to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, but the agency was notified of 13 outbreaks nationwide between 2008 and 2011. Of those, seven occurred in outpatient facilities, and most were traced to unsafe injection practices. At least two have resulted in criminal charges, including a Colorado woman who was convicted of stealing syringes filled with painkillers from two hospitals where she worked and replacing them with used syringes. The syringes were later used on surgical patients, and up to three dozen were found to have hepatitis C after being exposed. In New Hampshire, Montero said about 730 people have been tested so far, and several hundred more are expected. The state had been notifying those who did not test positive by mail but is now calling them, recognizing that patients are anxious to learn the results.

as the former photograph, because he didn’t want any of them out there,” he said. “He wanted his privacy. It wasn’t based on vanity. It was a very principled approach. He believed that nothing should stand in between the reader of a work of fiction and the fictional characters.” “If the reader has some kind of image of the author in mind, it changes things,” Salinger said. “And that’s just something I’m trying to not just respect but maintain however I can.” In his veto, Lynch called the bill overly broad and said it could have a chilling effect on legitimate journalistic and expressive works protected by the state and federal constitutions. “The protections for free speech that are guaranteed to all citizens under the state and federal constitutions are central to democracy and a free society. Legislation that could have the impact of restricting free speech must be carefully considered and narrowly tailored,” he said. “I believe that the omission of legitimate, clear exceptions for news and expressive works will inhibit constitutionally protected speech and result in needless litigation to judicially establish what should have been made explicit in this bill.” An earlier version passed by the Senate included specific exemptions for items protected by free speech, including news stories and broadcasts, plays and movies. Those exemptions were removed in the bill’s final version, which instead says someone’s “right to publicity” is “subject to limitations imposed by the New Hampshire constitution and the United States Constitution.” Salinger — a film producer himself — and other supporters of the bill argue that language offers sufficient protection for legitimate uses of someone else’s name or image. But opponents, ranging from the New Hampshire Press Association to the Motion Picture of Association of America, argued they would face costly litigation without explicit exemptions like those included in several similar laws in other states. “We’re gratified that Gov. Lynch took a close look at this legislation and realized that it was important to have a bright line, safe harbor exemption for expressive works, including movies, television, newspapers, books and magazines. And we’re hopeful that the New Hampshire Senate will take a second look at this when they have to consider the veto on June 27,” said Vans Stevenson, the motion picture group’s senior vice president for government affairs. That’s the day the Legislature will be in session to vote on overriding the governor’s veto. It takes a two-thirds majority in both the 24-member Senate and 400-member House to do so. The bill’s sponsor, state Sen. Matthew Houde, said Wednesday he doesn’t know whether the veto will be sustained. Noting all the outside groups that weighed in — from the motion picture association to groups representing professional athletes and video game manufacturing, he called the bill the “worst possible example of special interests beating wellintentioned legislation.” If the veto stands, “Now it just means people like the Salingers need to litigate to protect their family’s privacy. And that, to me, puts the burden on the wrong party,” he said.

Quality of Laconia’s potable water remains very high By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — Once again the city’s drinking water has matched or topped the strict standards for purity and quality set by the State of New Hampshire and the United States Environmental Protection Agency. The Laconia Water Department recently issued its annual report, which includes the results of an assessment of its operations conducted by the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services. The assessment notes that while the major risks to the water supply are MtBE from motorboats and roadways within 1,000 feet of the intake near the foot of Paugus Bay on Lake Winnipesaukee, during the past six years test results indicated that MtBE has been below detectable levels. Concern about adding fluoride to drinking water has led the EPA to direct those water works that fluoridate their drinking water to reduce the levels

to 0.7 milligrams per liter and since February, 2011 the Water Department has complied by injecting fluoride at the recommended level. In his annual report, Superintendent Seth Nuttleman reminded residents that the use of fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides in the Paugus Bay watershed pose a risk to the quality of the municipal water supply. The Conservation Shoreland Protection Act prohibits the use of all fertilizers, except for limestone, within 25 feet of public water bodies, but permits low phosphate and slow-release nitrogen

FRANKLIN — Cancer patient Kathy Bryant and her family are hosting a 2-day yard sale and raffle this weekend. All proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer Society. The located of the event is 63 Webster Lake Road and the hours will be 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on both days. Bryant has been diagnosed as stage-2 breast cancer in April of this year. This is her second time dealing with this disease — the first was 12 years ago. Since that time as soon as her grandchildren reach the age of seven they have walked in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk every October for her and to help find a cure. The Making Strides walk this year is October 14. Her daughter Nicole Spooner and her children Thomas, Brian, Daniel and Jasmin have walked every step of those 5 miles for years to help their “Nana” and all the other Nanas become well again. The name of their team this year is is Nana’s Faith and Hope. The family hopes to raise at least $750 from this yard sale/raffle so they can get the official team T-shirts this year. The family has received many donations items from family and friends to
make the yard sale a success but they have also received donations from many businesses as well to raffle off. Alan’s Restaurant in Boscawen, Arianna’s cafe in Franklin, Donetello’s pizza in Penacook, Steve’s Stereo & Music Exchange in Penacook, Tandy’s restaurant in Concord and Quality Cash Market in Concord have all donated gift certificates. Black Forest nursery in Boscawen, French’s Toy Store in Concord and Dick’s Dugout have all donated merchandise to raffle off.

LACONIA — Continuing the tradition of world-class music in an acoustically exceptional room, Dick Mitchell presents the “Thursday Night Live” concert series at Pitman’s Freight Room tonight at 8 p.m. Due to the overwhelming response to last Sunday’s “Blues & BBQ” at Pitman’s, Icehouse Recording artist Tony Joe Sarno and his band will take the stage for an encore presentation. The Sunday event had the audience dancing in the aisles, and lasted well into the evening. Sarno said, “best-sounding room in the world, and the best barbecue I’ve had since Memphis”. Kevin Halligan of Laconia Village Bakery provided Sunday’s barbecue, and although the only food at Thursday’s concert will be free popcorn, Mitchell looks forward to doing
another Sunday “Blues & BBQ” in the very near future. Admission is $10, and $8 for U.S. military current or retired. The venue is BYOB. Thursday being Flag Day, a day to honor of the adoption of the flag of the United States, and also the birthday of the U.S. Army, Sarno will play his Ray Charles-inspired rendition of “America, the beautiful”. Along with Al Hospers on bass, Dana Bonardi on drums, Bill Joyner on drums/ percussion/vocals, and Nate Weaver on guitar/vocals, Tony will also be playing music from his three internationally released cds, “It’s a blues thing, “Tony Sarno” and Thunderhawks”. Guitarist/Vocalist Sarno has recorded for CBS-Holland, Icehouse/ see next page

Live Music Tonight
LACONIA — The Winnipesaukee Playhouse kicks off its ninth season of theatre in Weirs Beach on June 20 with a romp through history entitled The Complete History of America (Abridged) by Adam Long, Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor. Filled with slapstick, song and sketches (naughty
bits included, just like in real history!), The Boston Herald called it “what ‘The Daily Show’ might be like if it were hosted by the Marx Brothers.” The play features Kevin Killavey, Alex Jacobs and Shabazz Green who all portray dozens of characters both familiar to history (Lewis and Clark as a Vaudeville-style double act) and of a more fictitious nature (Betsy Ross’s sister... Diana). Expect to see some favorite former presidents of the distant and not-so-distant past. Even the current Commanderin-Chief makes an appearance. The three mischief-makers are under the helm of director Keith Weirich. Making his Playhouse debut, Weirich was a Broadway and regional theatre actor before settling in New Hampshire where he serves as the Artistic Director of the hugely popular Peacock Players, an award-winning youth theatre company. He was the recipient of this year’s NH Theatre Award for Best Director of a Musical (Community). The set is designed by Dan Daly and Mathew Guminski returns for his 8th summer season as lighting designer. The costumes are designed by Lesley Pankhurst and Neil Pankhurst provides the sound design. The Complete History of America (Abridged) may not be suitable for children under the age of 13. Tickets cost $24 for adults and $22 for seniors/students. There are performances Mondays at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and Tuesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. from June 20 until June 30. The Complete History of America (Abridged) is generously sponsored by Laconia Savings Bank. For more information about performances, including a season subscription application form, visit www.winniplayhouse.org. Tickets can be booked by calling (603) 366-7377 or stopping by the theatre located in the Alpenrose Plaza in Weirs Beach. The Winnipesaukee Playhouse is also still booking for their exciting summer camp program for ages 5-18. Details are available online.

Inventors Doug Lambert and Tom Tardif recently obtained a patent for their cargo lockdown device which is now available at local hardware stores. (Courtesy photo)
Local duo moves from politics to inventions GILFORD — Lock ‘N Load Systems, LLC is proud to announce that on May 22, 2012 the company was awarded US Patent No. 8,182,182 B2 for the “LoaDown Cargo Tie-Down”, a unique cargo control device that secures long and low loads using the pre-existing holes in the tailgate of most pickup trucks. Truly a local product, this newly patented device is the brainchild of two familiar faces here in the Lakes Region, former Mayor Thomas A Tardif of Laconia and Doug Lambert of Gilford. Although both are well known for their years of activism in area politics, including a landmark NH Supreme Court win, it is their work in the private sector that helped pave the way for their success in the patent process. Tardif, a retired technician and manager from the telephone company who stays busy doing small construction and renovation projects, and Lambert, who owns and operates a successful manufacturing business, encountered a specific need with no apparent easy solution: how to safely and easily secure a load in a pickup truck that is either long, or thin, or both, and to do so without drilling holes or otherwise modifying some part of the vehicle. Working from Tardif’s original concept of using a tie-down strap with anchor points below the surface of the pickup-truck bed, the two busied themselves with several prototypes leading up to the ultimate design that earned them their patent—a process taking roughly four years, all told. While the product at first glance looks to be the familiar ratcheting tie-down strap long used and available almost everywhere, there is one very unique feature that sets it apart: the formed hooks at each end. Bent in a specific way differing from all existing ratchet strap hooks, the invention allows the truck owner to utilize existing production holes found in all of the tailgates of pickups manufactured by the “Big Three,” GM, Ford, and Chrysler. While these account for 75% of the US truck market, the product can also be used on other brands by drilling two 3/8” holes on the sides of the tailgate.
Using the patented LoaDown Cargo Tie-Down allows a person to secure loads without having to get up into the pickup bed. This makes it a userfriendly product for the elderly, handicapped, people with a bad back, or those simply wishing to add some efficiency and ease to moving life’s cargo. The invention works well for such items as 2x4’s, ladders, plywood, lattice, decking, pipe, sheetrock, canoes and kayaks, to name but just a few. Presently, this local invention is available for purchase at a number of retail outlet locations, including stores in Vermont, Rhode Island, Florida, and, of course, New Hampshire. The LoaDown Cargo Tie-Down can be found in the Lakes Region at several merchants including Trustworthy Hardware, Truck Trends, BoulliaGorrell, Gilford Home Center, A & B Lumber, the Meredith Fastenal, EM Heath Hardware, Wild Meadow Canoes & Kayaks, Mr. Chuck’s Discount Tire & Auto, Parkhurst & Co. General Store, and the Lumber Outlet on Tenney Mtn. Highway. More information about the product, and a more complete listing of retailers can be found on the product website, www.strapyourstuff.com, where the invention may also be purchased. As to the future, Tardif and Lambert will go wherever the unfolding process takes them. They have already manufactured and packaged several thousand units to supply existing and future retailers and distributors in the short term, while continuing to present the idea to other strap manufacturers for licensing. The inventors remain open to the possibility of selling the patent itself, should the right offer arise. “Show me the money,” chuckles Tardif, who takes great pride in obtaining the patent. “Having an idea patented was something I often thought about through the years,” said Lambert. “My friend Tom made it happen.” The product has already been featured at a national inventors trade show and has garnered interest from concerns as far away as Russia.

By Holiday Mathis addition to the family you were born into, you have created and maintained a family of friends. You’ll enjoy the fact that you can choose the cast of characters that accompanies you in your personal story. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There’s no end to what fascinates you. You’re enthralled with human history, nature, children, love, sunshine, dew, gravity... The hard part is quieting your brilliant mind at the end of the day. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your relationship with extended family will influence your day. If you’re married, this may have to do with your inlaws. You’ll pave the way for peaceful future interactions. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Sameness leads to staleness. It takes more effort to mix things up, but keep striving for variety. It allows you to better enjoy the things that give you pleasure. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are creative at your core, though it doesn’t always present itself in the way some people think creativity would. Artistic talent is only one small sector of the broad spectrum of your gifts. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 14). You don’t need symbols of success in order to feel good about yourself, but you’ll still enjoy the signs that you are growing rich and powerful. The next six weeks bring many such signs. An educational pursuit will connect you with new friends in August. October is best for travel. Wedding bells ring in December. Pisces and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 2, 4, 31 and 29.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). There’s a gleam in your eye as you set your heart on a fresh adventure. People connect with you. In fact, before this day is through, you will have brought more than one person out of a funk. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). How fast things can change! By afternoon, you’ll know why the morning’s plan wasn’t comprehensive enough. A new attack on the problems of the day will yield results by bedtime. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Make yourself comfortable in your own lifestyle. This won’t require money so much as organizational skills and the ability to set some limits, especially with your nearest and dearest. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You like companionship, but you also realize that life can be prosperous and great without it, too. Being versatile and not the least bit needy makes you the ideal partner. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your talent for self-reflection will be highlighted, as will your ability to assess your relationships clearly. When it’s not working, it’s nobody’s fault. You’ll take on the responsibility to fix it yourself. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Life is one big wonderful journey, and you don’t feel wed to the road map. You don’t even feel wed to the road itself. Figuratively, your vehicle is capable of an off-road adventure. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). One of your more discerning moods takes hold, and you wonder why you should accept what’s given when you clearly can negotiate or charm your way into better options. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). In

Page 28 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, June 14, 2012
Dear Annie: I had several surgeries during the past year and needed help from friends during my recovery. They have been generous with their time, caring for me and my three boys so my husband could work. They even helped with meals and chores. I have paid them in cash and gifts to show my gratitude. The problem is, I caught two of my friends stealing my pain medications. The first incident was so blatant that I immediately ended our relationship. I then caught the second friend skimming a few pills every visit. There is no mistake. After the first incident, I began keeping track, and it was clear that two pills were missing every time this particular friend visited. I know if I confronted him, he would deny it or blame someone else, so I haven’t bothered. Now my pills are locked up, which makes it inconvenient for me. But I can’t seem to forgive or forget. I feel violated and taken advantage of and can’t seem to move forward. Please advise. -- Out of Meds in California Dear California: If these friends are addicted to pain pills, they probably could not control themselves when access was so simple. You have taken the necessary steps to be sure there is no additional theft. However, it sounds as if you need to get this off your chest. If it will make you feel better, tell the second friend that you are aware that he stole your pills. State it as a matter of fact, not as a question, and suggest he get professional help for his addiction. Don’t argue with him. Other than an admission of guilt or an apology, his response is irrelevant. This is for your benefit, not his. Dear Annie: My husband and I play golf once a week with three other couples, and all of us go out to eat afterward. We live in a retirement community with many restaurants, but we always go to the same few and always eat inside.
I am cold in air-conditioned restaurants, so I prefer to eat outside. The others say it’s too hot, too buggy, too windy, etc., so I never get to eat where I like. I think we should rotate choosing restaurants so we each get a turn to select the one we want. What do you think is fair? -- California Dear California: Taking turns is fair, but it will only work if the others agree. So, by all means, ask them. But as uncomfortable as you are indoors, you can put on a sweater or jacket to stay warm. Those who have a problem with heat, wind or bugs can do nothing about it. If your golfing buddies prefer not to change the current set-up, we recommend you save your outdoor dining for other occasions. Dear Annie: “My Heart Is Aching for Lonely Seniors” made a plea for family members to visit loved ones who are in a nursing home. I have a suggestion that has worked well for us. Four years ago, my mother had a stroke and now is mostly confined to her home. We installed a set of nine video telephones that allow Mom to see the kids and the kids to see her. I was surprised how well this works, and the “face to face” contact is great. The young kids like to show off for Mom and let her see their homework and projects, and of course, Mom adores seeing them. Telephone calls are fine, but young kids don’t often have a lot to say. With a video phone (or Skype or anything else like it), the entire family can gather around to wave and say hi to Mom. It is almost like being there. This is particularly good for family members who live out of state. It’s worked out great for us. -- G. Dear G.: Technology has provided wonderful ways to stay in touch. Thanks for the suggestion.

WATERVILLE VALLEY — The Margret and H.A. Rey Center in Waterville Valley has always been dedicated to preserving the spirit of the Reys, who were not only the creators of the Curious George and friends characters, but also avid naturalists and land stewards. In keeping with that spirit, the Margret and H.A. Rey Center is offering the public the opportunity to become stewards of a very special area in the White Mountains, the distinctive peaks of Welch and Dickey mountains. The Rey Center had these special peaks in mind recently when they applied for a Waterman Fund grant to fund The Welch Ledges Stewardship and Citizen Science Program. The Rey Center will use the accessible Welch Ledges as a springboard to educating the public about the importance of northeastern alpine environments and their vulnerability to visitor impacts. The ledges are generally the first exposed and expansive area reached by hikers along the popular 4.2-mile loop hike over Welch and Dickey Mountains. Volunteer Ledge Stewards will spend one day or several on the Welch Ledges educating hikers about the plant communities that live there and ongoing efforts to protect them. Stewards will also direct hikers safely among the outcrop plant communities
on the ledges and ensure directional and educational signage is in place. There are several stewardship dates available: 6/30, 7/1, 8/4, 8/5, 9/1, 9/2, 10/6, and 10/7. Each stewardship session lasts four hours from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Training for Volunteer Ledge Stewards is scheduled for Saturday, June 23 Volunteers can also choose to join Rey Center research staff on Welch Mountain to help conduct population surveys of the plant species that characterize the unique outcrop communities that live there. Welch Ledges Citizen Scientists will be actively engaged in helping establish an ongoing monitoring effort that will contribute to the long-term health of these plants and efforts to manage the impacts of frequent hiker visitations. There are two citizen science sessions scheduled: 7/18 and 8/1. Each citizen science session lasts three hours from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. A Welch Ledges Stewardship Hike will be held on July 21, from 9 a.m. – noon. The support of the Waterman Fund allows the Rey Center to offer this program to the public free of charge. Since 2000, the Waterman Fund has raised over $300,000 for alpine stewardship projects across New England. To become a Volunteer Ledge Steward or Welch Ledges Citizen Scientist contact Kim Votta at email@example.com or at (603) 236-3308.
MOULTONBOROUGH — The 2012 Moultonborough Library House Tour on Thursday, June 28, will include a visit to a historic property situated atop Center Harbor Hill which is the former residence on the Dane Estate, which in earlier days had a staff of 22. Rich in history and beauty, exemplifying peacefulness, elegance and tranquility, it had been vacant for four years before Jan and Paul Maggi purchased the property three years ago and now currently offer it as a Bed & Breakfast they named Hearthstone. Every room displays the care and tastefulness infused into each space by the owners. Some of the hardware is replica Haywood Washington 1780’s as seen in Charlestown period homes and boast teak refinished flooring. Gracious terraces overlook a magnificent view of Squam Lake, Rattlesnake Mountain and Burley Farm. The unbelievable carriage house with a massive second story is the quintessential embodiment of every man’s dream, complete with a car turntable, indoor car wash, working bell tower. In 1942, world famous art works were secretly stored in this building during WWII, when 95 paintings and 9 stained glass windows
were brought from Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum for safety. Besides being able to visit this exceptional B & B, there are five other homes situated in Moultonborough included in the house tour. Locations and directions will be included with the $35 ticket that may be purchased at the Moultonborough Library or at Bayswater Books. Jane Harrington and Carole Smith are co-chairing this huge event with Friends of the Library and have worked diligently on this project with the assistance of members and many volunteers. Friends of the Library have done much for the library and last year celebrated their 25th year. The proceeds of the house tour will help the library to purchase equipment and help run seasonal activities. This library is very active and Library Director Nancy McÇue has done wonders offering lectures, speakers, workshops, cake decorating, classes in computer science and the making of soap and cheese. The Children’s Librarian Judi Knowles, has something going on each week with a variety of special events. Besides story time, there have been ice cream and pizza parties, decorating a variety of objects, egg hunts, May Pole dancing.
