School district will push for $11-million Huot Center project Sachems with last $1.5-million to come from no-interest federal loan wednesday

are D-II softball champs

MANCHESTER — The Laconia High School softball team coached by Darci Blake captured the NHIAA Division II championship yesterday with a 5-4 win over Hollis-Brookline on the campus of Southern N.H. University. It was the school’s first ever softball crown. The Sachems finished the regular season with a 14-2 record that earned them the number three seed in the tournament. After an opening round scare against Sanborn, a 9-8 victory, Laconia blasted past Souhegan (10-4) and Merrimack Valley (10-2) to reach the title game.

LACONIA — Architects designing the proposed Huot Regional Technical Education Center renovation and expansion and Superintendent Robert Champlin said yesterday the project will cost $11-million, if completed — about $1.5-million over budget. The proposal that Champlin said would be the best for the Huot Center and for the Laconia High School’s future is most of what was previously called Option B and includes a 32,600 square-foot two story addition on the

Dewey Street side and a renovation of existing 17,000 square-feet of Huot space, turning back the second floor of the current Huot to LHS for future development. Champlin said the district learned recently — since last month’s Huot Center Committee meeting — that it qualifies for no-interest, federal education loans because it is a district with more than a 35-percent economically-disadvantaged, or poor, population — a figure based on how many students qualify for federal free or reduced-price lunches.

“No interest is better than school building aid,” Champlin said, explaining that a $1.5 million, 17-year no-interest loan through the federal government would require an annual payback of $88,000. State building aid — there is a moratorium on all new projects but Laconia’s Huot expansion qualified before the moratorium was put in place — pays back 40-percent of the construction principal for a school building loan, in Laconia’s case, but none of the interest cost. see HUOT page 10

Murdersuicide in a Concord driveway

CONCORD (AP) — A husband apparently shot his wife to death at their Concord home, then turned the gun on himself Tuesday as police approached him, authorities said. Sarah Balch, 25, and Matthew Balch, 22, were found outside their home. Several people inside the house, including Matthew Balch’s mother and three young children, were not hurt, said Jeffrey Strelzin, senior assistant attorney general. “This was a very dangerous situation,” he said. Strelzin said Matthew Balch’s mother had called 911, saying her son was in his driveway with a gun to his head and that he had shot his wife. When police arrived at the house, they found the body of Sarah Balch partway up the driveway. Then they heard a gunshot. They continued up the driveway and found Matthew Balch dead with a rifle next to him, Strelzin said. “This is clearly a domestic incident,” Strelzin said. “There’s some history here, but see MURDER page 10

In Calif., gay judge’s same-sex marriage ruling upheld SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A federal judge on Tuesday had a message for those trying to salvage California’s gay marriage ban: Sure, the judge who threw out the measure last year is in a long-term relationship with a man, but he could still be fair to them. Chief U.S. District Court Judge James Ware’s ruling rejected arguments that former Chief Judge Vaughn Walker would potentially benefit from declaring the ban unconstitutional. In his 19-page decision — a response to the first attempt in the nation to disqualify a judge based on sexual orientation —

Ware had a bigger message. Gay judges, he said, are just like minority and female jurists: They can be impartial, too, even in cases that might affect them. “We all have an equal stake in a case that challenges the constitutionality of a restriction on a fundamental right,” he wrote. “The single characteristic that Judge Walker shares with the plaintiffs, albeit one that might not have been shared with the majority of Californians, gave him no greater interest in a proper decision on the merits than would exist for any other judge or citizen.” Ware upheld his retired predecessor’s

ruling that struck down Proposition 8. Finding that Walker could not be presumed to have a personal stake in the case just because he has a same-sex partner, Ware wrote that the judge had no obligation to divulge whether he wanted to marry before he struck down the ban. “The presumption that Judge Walker, by virtue of being in a same-sex relationship, had a desire to be married that rendered him incapable of making an impartial decision, is as warrantless as the presumption that a female judge is incapable of being impartial in a case in which women seek see GAY JUDGE page 10

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Wisconsin Supreme Court handed Republican Gov. Scott Walker a major victory on Tuesday, ruling that a polarizing union law that strips most public employees of their collective bargaining rights could take effect. In a 4-3 decision that included a blistering dissent, the court ruled that Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi overstepped her authority when she declared the law void. Sumi had ruled that Repub-

lican lawmakers violated the state’s open meetings statutes in the run-up to passage of the union legislation. The proposal sparked weeks of protests when Walker introduced it in February. Tens of thousands of demonstrators descended on the state Capitol for weeks and Democratic senators fled the state to prevent a vote, thrusting Wisconsin to the forefront of a national debate over labor rights. Walker claimed that the law, which also

requires public employees to pay more for their health care and pensions, was needed to help address the state’s $3.6 billion budget shortfall and to give local governments enough flexibility on labor costs to deal with deep cuts to state aid. Democrats saw it as an attack on public employee unions, which usually back their party’s candidates. In a one-sentence reaction to the ruling, see WISCONSIN page 9

Gilmanton teachers go after Forsythe for perceived lack of support for education BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

GILMANTON — Senator Jim Forsythe (R-Strafford) of District 4 got an earful last night from a pair of Gilmanton teachers who charged he was undermining public education. The confrontation took place at a joint meeting of the Gilmanton and Gilford School Boards. After discussing the state budget and retirement system, Forsythe found himself on the defensive when the conversation turned to school funding, Paul DeMinico, the outgoing Gilford school superintendent, asked about the constitutional amendment to reverse the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Claremont case. Forsythe explained that the Senate and House adopted similar amendments, but remained at odds over wording. The Senate version, he said, stipulated that the Legislature shall have the “responsibility” of setting reasonable standards of public education and mitigating local disparities in

educational opportunities and fiscal capacity. The House, he said, objected to the word “responsibility,” claiming it invited litigation. Forsythe anticipated that the amendment would be retained in committee and the Senate and House would resolve their differences next year, in time to place it on the general election ballot in November, 2012. DeMinico expressed concern that the amendment would leave funding for public schools “at the whim of the Legislature,” which is liable to constant change. Forsythe said that in preparing a formula for distributing state aid lawmakers sought to assure school districts of sufficient funding into the future, not least in an effort to garner support for the constitutional amendment, which will require a twothirds majority of the electorate. Forsythe himself sponsored a resolution simply declaring that the court’s decisions in the Claremont litigation are not binding on either the legislative or executive branch of gov-

N.H. unemployment rate continues to drop

CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire’s unemployment rate is continuing to go down. Statistics released by the Department of Employment Security says the unemployment rate for May was 4.8 percent, down one-tenth of a percent from the April rate. The rate for May 2010 was 6.1 percent. Nationally, the unemployment rate

for May 2011 was 9.1 percent, an increase of one-tenths of a percentage point from the April rate and a decrease of a half a point from May 2010. Gov. John Lynch says the unemployment figures shows the state’s economic strategy is working. He says New Hampshire is “the envy of the region and the nation.”

Pat Buchanan

Why Weiner is going under under the bus Is there any redeeming social value to the tawdry tale of Anthony Weiner? Only this: The nationwide revulsion at the conduct of the congressman has compelled the leadership and members of the House Democratic caucus to demand he resign immediately and cease not only distracting them from their work but stinking up their party. Traditional morality has just been affirmed by Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats. For consider what it was Weiner did. He sent lewd and pornographic photos of himself to half a dozen women, including a college student, a stripper and a 17-year-old who had befriended him on Facebook. He initiated “sex-ting” with women who had simply expressed admiration for his politics and leadership. On seeing a few of the photos in the tabloid press and reading of the others and Weiner’s language, the adjectives that come to mind are gross, infantile, weird, sick, suicidal. How could a congressman sit in his office at night text-messaging these kinds of pictures, engaging in that kind of talk, when he was surely aware he was being monitored by enemies who would relish ending his career in the kind of disgrace he faces today? But how does Weiner’s disgrace and inevitable departure from politics affirm the old morality? Again, consider. Weiner has not been accused of a crime. His exchanges with the 17-year-old are of a flirtatious and suggestive nature than a proposition. And while Pelosi has asked the ethics committee to look into his conduct, its investigation has yet to begin. Of what exactly, then, is Weiner guilty? He went before the press and lied, defiantly denying he had sent the text messages to the student. Four days later, he admitted to sending the messages. But did not President Clinton lie, under oath, about a far graver offense, his Oval Office trysts with Monica Lewinsky? Yet, to a man, Senate Democrats refused to remove him. Why, then, must Weiner be removed? Two decades ago, Rep. Gerry Studds admitted to seducing a 16-year-old male page and taking him on a European junket. Yet when censured by the House, Studds turned his back to the speaker’s chair — and was reelected repeatedly from his Massachusetts district. What Weiner did was degraded, but it did not rise to the level of what Studds survived. Why, then, must Weiner go? In traditional morality, what Weiner did, engage in immoral and squalid behavior, should result in permanent shame and instant

removal from any position of honor. Adherents of the old morality cannot understand why he is still in Congress. Was not Rep. Chris Lee, also of New York, a Republican, gone in four hours when it was discovered he sent a bare-chested picture of himself to Craigslist? However, in the new morality of secular humanism, the gay rights movement and the libertarian left, what men or women do in their private lives is their own business. Sexual relations between consenting adults are neither moral nor immoral and should never be criminalized. Under the new morality, pornography has been decriminalized and pornographic websites are among the most visited on the Internet. As for “sexting,” this practice is today apparently common among teenagers. Hence the questions: By the standards of the new morality, what did Weiner do immoral? What did he do wrong, other than get caught by Andrew Breitbart? From all we know, Weiner was engaged in private consensual dirty talk with women who apparently did not object, or they could have outed him or shut him off. Why, then, are his friends not standing by him? Why is the party he has served faithfully as an attack dog against the GOP and a guard dog of liberalism deserting him? Why does his party want him gone? Why are they throwing him under the bus? Answer: Weiner is expendable. One can give up a congressman whose House seat is safely Democratic. A pawn can be sacrificed if necessary. But letting a president of one’s own party be thrown out of office is another matter. A party cannot lose its king without suffering the damage the GOP did in the 1970s. Second, House Democrats recognize that, should they declare themselves guided by the tenets of the new morality, insist that Weiner’s private life is between him and his wife, and that what he did, while embarrassing, was neither criminal nor immoral but only stupid, they would be putting at risk Democrats from districts where the traditional morality still prevails. The national reaction to Anthony Weiner, the clamor that he get out of the House now, to which the Democratic Party is yielding, testifies to the enduring moral health of the nation. The culture war is not yet wholly lost. (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’m upset tax dollars being used to support corrupt ed system To the editor, This letter is in response to Leo R. Sandy’s recent submission titled, “A dream school for some”. After reading this, it became clear to me that Mr. Sandy has never read the Bible, the U.S. Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, or even educated himself on the accurate history of this once leading nation. What is my idea of a public dream school? I firmly believe that we should go back to the basics of reading, writing, and arithmetic. Even then, the parents would be in total control of what their children are reading and writing about. It would be a school that shies away from all other matters, but still has the authority to discipline disrespectful and out of control students. There would be a true separation of church and state. You see, by currently teaching our children the “theory” of evolution, it infringes upon my right to have a separation of church and state. There would be a uniform that all must wear to prevent the teasing of some who cannot afford the latest “fashions”. Children would not be taught that Christians, home-schoolers and supporters of our Founding Fathers of this nation are the true terrorists in this country. Parents would be provided a voucher so that if they chose to provide their child a higher education than that of the public school (the 3 R’s), they would be able to use that as funds to do so. Lastly, my dream school would not be involved in the administration of vaccine clinics on campus because, as I stated earlier, there would only be reading, writing, and arithmetic implemented. As a mother of 2 vaccine-injured children, I wouldn’t live

in constant fear of my children possibly dying due to a careless mistake (becoming very common in recent years) made on behalf of a school “official”. Parents would also be informed that vaccination for school entry is a “choice” in 48 states. They are not mandatory as they are currently led to believe by school officials. Is Mr. Sandy aware of the fact that the United Nations dictates to its member nations just what will be taught in our public schools? There was an article not too long ago in the New York Times that the U.N. wished to teach our kindergarten students about masturbation. Does Mr. Sandy feel comfortable with this idea? Does he feel comfortable with parents not having any rights whatsoever in regard to their child’s education? This is exactly the path that our current system is headed down. As a patriot, Christian, wife of a Marine who served for 21 years, and mother of two children, I found Mr. Sandy’s submission highly offensive on all counts. It is very upsetting to me that my tax dollars must be used to support the current corrupt public education system. At the same time though, he made me realize just how blessed I am that I currently live in a country where I have the freedom of not only speech, but freedom of choosing whether or not I want to send my children to public school, private school, home-school or even no school. In a perfect world though, at the very least, one would receive a voucher that would enable them to send their child to a school of their choice if a financial situation was an obstacle.

My dream school would employ open minded educators, not bigots To the editor, A new low for the self-righteous professor. Leo Sandy’s “Dream School” was the most insulting and obnoxious liberal drivel yet to emanate from the pen of the enlightened professor.

My dream school would employ open minded educators, not proselytizing hypocritical bigots like Sandy and most of his ilk. Robert E. Hood Center Harbor

LETTERS Private insurance of health care is result of WWII era accident To the editor, An open letter to Congressman Frank Guinta: I was dismayed to receive a glossy, shallow promotion piece, and even more dismayed to note that this publication was paid for by my tax dollars. I would expect from my representative a more thoughtful and thorough analysis of the issues. Here are a few items that require serious consideration. Reducing the deficit, and the national debt, is indeed a vital priority if our nation is to survive. But to take military spending off the table is simply irresponsible. You are too young to recall, but I’m sure you are aware of, President Eisenhower’s warning a half-century ago to beware the military-industrial complex. The country has ignored that warning, and as a result become mired in reliance on a group of industries supported by taxpayer dollars that has armed the world, including our adversaries, and produced a dependency on those industries. New Hampshire is no exception – consider BAE systems, for example, and the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard to mention only two big ones. (Perhaps they are among your major contributors?) Where was the hysteria over the debt when the previous administration was cutting taxes on the rich and running around the world starting wars “on the cuff”? Indeed, that administration inherited a surplus in the budget which it promptly squandered. At the same time Wall Street was running amuck with unregulated speculation, to the detriment of homeowners and taxpayers nation wide, running the country into the worst recession since the 1930s and requiring bail-outs at taxpayers expense. The proposal to “save Medicare” dumps future seniors into the tender arms of the private insurance industry. Medical costs have exploded!

That industry has created massive overhead for themselves and likewise burdening providers, while lining the pockets of its executives with multimillion dollar salaries and benefits. The insurer decides which doctor(s) you may see, which hospitals you may use, and even what treatment they will allow. Indeed, as a Medicare recipient, a reward of turning 65 was to escape the clutches of the private insurance industry. Private insurance of health care is the result of an accident of history during World War II. We are stuck with it to some extent, but that is no reason to expand it forever. It’s time to completely revise and simplify the tax code, to remove tax subsidies for all kinds of business – oil, coal, ethanol, etc. etc. Recognize that tax breaks for favored industries are in fact tax expenditures and must be considered as such. Politicians say renewables should compete based on the market, but the market is skewed with support from the taxpayers for so-called “traditional” energy sources, nuclear included..On Social Security: consider, for example, that while the very wealthy get tax breaks, and pay FICA and Medicare on a very small portion of their income, a struggling entrepreneur pays 15-percent FICA on top of whatever his income tax liability might be. An obvious fix for Social Security is to raise the income limit on which FICA is assessed, while capping benefits for those whose resources already allow for comfortable retirement. Please, don’t ask me to pay for more puff pieces. Release yourself from the shackles of the tea party or other ideologues, and do some independent analysis for yourself. We need Congress people who will come up with real solutions. Not just more slogans. Carolyn W. Baldwin Gilmanton

We cut down trees to create ski lifts. Are they too an eyesore? To the editor, Just a few random thoughts on recent letters and political actions. — Another person wants a sales tax and/or income tax to lower property taxes. Recommend that the newspaper no longer accept letters recommending sales or income taxes; unless there are specifics. Do you want a flat or progressive tax? Are you going to tax on the federal adjusted gross income? Are you going to tax alimony, support payments, gifts of cash, earning from Roth IRAs, railroad retirement, social security, veteran’s benefits, workers’ compensation benefits and room/ board payments? What is gong to be taxed under a sales tax? — I wish to thank the N.H. House and Senate for all of their actions particularly Voter ID, Gun Law, Right-to Work and the new budget. — On Northern Pass, did ski trails automatically appear? Didn’t we mow down trees and put-up heavy metal towers (ski lifts). Are they an eyesore

in the summer? — I wish to answer Lynn Chong’s question on exiting war. In the military, we are taught to win wars not exit wars. Naturally, when you are leaving you are vulnerable to attacks. I recommend that you inform President Obama of your concerns. — On the lady broken down, are you concerned that no one helped you or is this a letter on restricting gun laws? A word of advice, do not drive in Vermont, no permit is needed to carry a concealed weapon. — On a funny note, Vice President Biden is after the desert tortoise (threatened species). He wants to defund their website. — I agree with President Obama’s family that they are okay with one term. I am happy to support the effort to please his family and make him an one-term president.

435 Union Avenue, Laconia, NH 03246

To the editor, Are the voters in 2012 going to be as INTELLIGENT as those of the past 65 years? We can only hope so! There has been NO SITTING PRESIDENT re-elected to office with an unemployment rate above 7.2-percent since the 1940s. At election time next year, unemployment is projected to be somewhere between 8.0 and 9.0-percent, based on estimates from labor smartest professionals. It is now at 9.1-percent and even worse, the economy appears to be stalling out. The 2012 election will be an IQ test of America’s collective INTELLIGENCE. Why does any president with such lousy unemployment numbers need the boot? Because high, sustained unemployment signals deep and significant economic policy failures. Either the incorrect economic medicine has been prescribed or the patient’s needs ignored entirely as other priorities are deemed more important. Both are colossal presidential blunders. The primary focus of the Obama administration has never been the unemployment crisis. It’s undisputed TOP PRIORITY was the ethicstainted, OBAMACARE legislation cram down, jam down. It consumed almost all the energies of the administration. We now pay the price now for that inattention. That bitter, partisan debate still rages to this very day in the legal courts and the court of public opinion. More Americans want Obamacare overturned than implemented. This is a fact unchanged since the debate began two long years ago. Obama has been the most divisive and overtly anti-business president in modern history. If he wasn’t demonizing big oil or big insurance he was denouncing Wall Street, the banking sector or the mortgage industry. If it wasn’t the uncertain impact on the economy of his legislative proposals on business, it was the questionable impact his regulatory ambitions would have. A perfect example of this is the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), which has inserted itself in

a dispute between Boeing Aircraft and its union concerning a two billion dollar plant it just built in South Carolina that will eventually employ thousands. The NLRB board is comprised of ALL Obama appointees. Thus every NLRB action becomes a partisan rebuke to favor unions and harm business. Or consider the outright and intentional delays for months, even years in some cases, for permits to drill deep water wells in the Gulf of Mexico or Alaska while gasoline rises to more than 4 bucks a gallon. These presidential actions prevent tens of thousands of jobs from being produced and directly harms economic output. When the outlook is uncertain or hostile, business does what it does best. It hordes its money (which it is doing now in the trillions) and it stops making what it considers to be risky hiring commitments. Commands, rules and regulations from government that make every newly hired employee come with more strings, stronger commitments and higher costs is met by business with a do nothing attitude. In business a threatening and uncertain future sets the stage for economic stagnation. Barack Obama is the MOST ANTIBUSINESS, ANTI-INVESTMENT and ANTI-CAPITALIST president we have ever had in history. As long as he is in office the American economy will sputter and falter and unemployment will remain much higher than it would be under a business friendly president. Until the private sector is not seen as an enemy of the poor, business investment not seen as a get rich tax avoidance scheme and capitalism is indeed recognized as the only option to lift the standard of living for countless millions then our economy will stagnate aimlessly as it has been doing under the bungling Obama. If you voted for Obama in in 2008 to prove you were not a racist, you will need to vote for someone else next year to prove your not an idiot. Tony Boutin Gilford

Bush tax cuts prevented burden from shifting to middle incomes To the editor, After last November’s election President Obama and the Democrat-controlled Congress extended the Bush tax cuts. This exposed the facts about the Bush tax cuts. But, apparently not everyone learned, or some refused to learn, the facts. Below is a quiz about the Bush tax cuts, select the correct answer. Compared to the Clinton era income tax laws, the Bush tax cuts: a. Cut income taxes for most middle income taxpayers by at least $1,000. b. Dropped the income tax due from millions of poorer Americans to zero. c. Collected more income tax revenue from higher income earners.

d. Raised approximately 20-percent more revenue during the Bush years than during the booming Clinton years. e. All of the above. The answer is “e“, all of the above. If the Bush tax cuts had not been extended, taxes for middle income Americans would have risen and more of the tax burden would shift from high earners to middle and lower income Americans. This would have clearly revealed that the seven year smear of what Democrats called the “Bush tax cuts for the rich” was a lie. Don Ewing Meredith

Is Ms. Miller unaware that incest is a crime & should be treated as such? To the editor, Ms. Kate Warner Miller believes the parental notification bill is needed so that those girls who may be victims of incest do not have to tell their parents that they are pregnant. What gets lost here is the fact that her example is not a parental notification issue, but

an issue of a criminal act that needs to be prosecuted. If, in fact, the parent is the father of the unborn, the child could be put in protective care and the father behind bars. Aborting the unborn child without advising the girl’s parents would see next page

Council forwards ‘conditional offer’ to top pick for city manager job LACONIA — Following a nonpublic session on Monday night, the City Council directed Don Jutton of Municipal Resources, Inc. of Meredith to present a “conditional offer” to one of the two finalists for the position of city manager. Mayor Mike Seymour said that once the candidate accepted the conditional offer, which includes authorization for the council to conduct a background check, a special meeting of the City Council will be convened to ratify the agreement, conditional upon the execution of a formal employment contract. He hoped the special meeting could be scheduled before this week is out, when he expected to introduce the appointee to the public and press. Seymour said that the other final-

ist would be informed of the council’s choice as well as advised to “stand by” pending the completion of a successful background check and conclusion of a formal contract. The mayor noted that neither of the two finalists are bound by commitments that would prevent them from beginning work almost at once. “We are fortunate. “They are available more or less immediately,” he said, “so there will be no 30, 60 or 90 day gap.” Acting city manager Pam Reynolds is slated to retire from her position as finance director at the end of this month. Eileen Cabanel resigned the position last month — after a 10-year-long stay on the job — to accept a similar position in the Town of Merrimack.

Mass. man injured in Meredith motorcycle accident MEREDITH — A Charlton, Mass. man was transported to Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia on Tuesday night for treatment of injuries sustained in a single motorcycle accident on Rte. 25. Vity S. Larson, 46, was said to be suffering from a head

laceration and road rash injuries. According to a police report, Larson was traveling eastbound in the vicinity of Old Center Harbor Road when he lost control of his Honda VTX180 and the motorcycle went down.

Gilford authorities looking for missing 58-year-old GILFORD — Police are asking assistance in locating 58-year-old Kevin H. King. Anyone who has seen King or may have information as to his wereabouts is asked to call police at 527-4737.

Police say King’s vehicle has been accounted for. They say he suffers from both physical and mental illness and has had issues with confusion and dementia in the past.

FORSYTHE from page 3 was made worse by New Hampshire’s unfair tax system, which failed to generate sufficient resources to support the public school system. She said that the Legislature had blamed public employees for the state’s fiscal plight and wondered why anyone would wish to become a school teacher in a state where they are denied the respect due professionals. Then it was the turn of Kirby’s colleague Terry Burlingame, a Spanish teacher, who said later that she had confronted Forsythe before. She claimed that he “vilified” public employees, especially teachers, and charged “what you as a Tea Partier are doing to public schools is disgraceful. The Tea Party group that you are a part of are destroying public education.” When Burlingame scolded Forsythe for supporting charter schools, he countered that “charter schools are public schools.” As she spoke he reminded her that the Senate restored many of the reductions in education funds initially proposed by Governor John Lynch. With that Burlingame said that she would include the governor among the blameworthy. With the two speaking over one another, chairman Mike Hatch cut

short the debate and called the meeting to order. Earlier Forsythe reaffirmed the determination of the Republican majorities in both the Senate and the House to balance the 2012-2013 state budget without raising taxes or withholding revenue or transferring costs to cities and towns. He reminded his listeners that in his budget address Governor John Lynch recommended reducing payments for school building and special education as well as tuition and transportation for students attending vocational technical centers. Both the House and Senate restored most of that funding, Forsythe said. Forsythe conceded that despite the efforts of lawmakers, cities, towns and school districts are likely to bear an increased share of employer contributions to the New Hampshire Retirement System for firefighters, police officers and school teachers. He explained that the state, which in the last biennium reduced its share from 35-percent to 25-percent, would eliminate its contribution altogether. Although increases in the employee contributions are intended to offset the impact, he acknowledged that see next page

from preceding page only serve to continue the abuse. Rather than giving others the right to take a child for an abortion, wouldn’t it be better to develop a program to deal with addressing incest . . . before it becomes an abortion issue.

It appears that some people’s solution is to simply deny life to the unborn, the most innocent victim of all. That’s tragic and only compounds the crime. Bob Meade Laconia

FIRE from page one Fire Inspector William O. Clark made the statement on June 6 in an affidavit he submitted as part of a lawsuit filed in Merrimack County Superior Court against the Fire Marshal’s Office by the Laconia business, owned by Brandi Baldi. “Based on my experience with fire investigations and the information in the case in particular, I have a reasonable belief that this investigation will lead to criminal charges,” Clark wrote. Clark authored his statement as part of a state response to Baldi’s Right-to-Know request demanding the Office of the Fire Marshal allow her and her attorneys the opportunity to “inspect and copy any from preceding page

municipalities and school districts remain at risk and said that the Legislature was authorized to make compensatory payments, if the funds are available. However, Forsythe said that lawmakers learned today that the directors of the New Hampshire Retirement System lowered the anticipated rate of return on investments, effectively projecting a shortfall in revenue. To overcome the loss of investment income, he said that employer contributions, including those from cities, towns and school districts, would have to increase.


and all records, information and documents” about the fire of Sept. 17, 2010. While the Office of the Fire Marshal has released some documents, Baldi’s court pleadings and the fire marshal’s reply indicate there are documents that were not released because reports for ongoing police investigations or reports that would reveal investigation methods are banned from public scrutiny under N.H.’s Right-to-Know law. Baldi is waging wars on a number of fronts regarding the disposition of the former landmark hotel and restaurant in the Weirs. On May 29, Laconia District Court Judge Jim Carroll, responding to a request from City Hall, ordered her to demolish the remains on or before yesterday. Baldi, who said she will tear down the building after annual Motorcycle Week ends, filed an appeal of Carroll’s ruling in Belknap County Superior Court late Monday afternoon. In addition, City Manager Pam Reynolds said yesterday that she understands Baldi has agreed with the city to raze the remains and confirmed she also applied for a demolition permit. Reynolds said the city agreed with Baldi that tearing it down during Bike Week would be too dangerous. On a different front, Baldi’s insurance company, Lloyds of London, has refused to pay out her fire insurance claim. She has filed suit against them in

from preceding page Belknap County Superior Court. As of Monday, a court clerk said no reply has been filed by the insurance company but it has until early July to do so. Baldi is also defending against a lawsuit filed by the owner of the sprinkler company that installed the fire suppression system at the saloon but says he hasn’t been paid. Statements by fire officials in the aftermath of the blaze are vague. “We closed that case months ago,” said Fire Chief Ken Erickson yesterday. “That had to do with the building inspector and the fire marshal. Laconia Police Chief Christopher Adams also said yesterday his department continues to assist the fire marshal with the investigation and the case is still open. Shortly after the fire, Erickson said it appeared to have started accidentally what a light fixture was too close to something flammable. The partially released report in Baldi’s court file says the fire was caused in a storage or other area — fire officials said it began in a second floor bedroom — that the heat source was from something powered and the first item ignited was a floor covering or something else that was made from fabric, textile or fur. Under factors contributing to ignition is a code indicating the heat source was too close. This is consistent with Erickson’s description of events in the days immediately after the fire. As to the cause, the fire marshal’s document show it was under investigation and an unattended person was the human factor contributing to ignition. Initial news reports said Baldi suspected there may be a squatter staying in a second floor motel room. Baldi’s suspicion is supported by her and Deputy Fire Chief Deb Pendergast’s accounts of a fire department response to a phone call from Baldi around 9 p.m. on the night of September 16, about six and one-half hours before the actual fire was spotted, telling them the alarms were sounding. Baldi said in her only media interview on the day of the fire that none of her employees working that night smelled or saw anything and when the alarms sounded during the evening hours. They all went to

the second floor and noticed one of the motel rooms appeared to have been occupied, unbeknown to her. “The door was ajar,” she said. “The television was on,” she continued. “Maybe they were there earlier.” She also said initial television reports of a drunk being thrown out of the bar earlier in the evening were untrue. “The room appeared to have been occupied,” Pendergast told WMUR news in an interview, noting the heat had been turned on and the bedding appeared used. Baldi said city firefighters responded to the alarm and the Lakes Region Mutual Fire Aid log recorded the call at 8:51 p.m. “I know there was no fire when they came at 9 o’clock,” Baldi said. Included in partial fire marshal’s report is a statement by retired Laconia Lt. Michael Shastany who wrote the department got a call from the Wide Open Saloon telling them “the fire alarm was sounding and we had not responded.” “They (the callers from the Wide Open Saloon) also reported they found the cause of the alarm and there was no fire,” Shastany continued. “Found a heat detector that had been struck by a mattress that appeared to have been move by a vagrant who gained access to the room.” Shastany also said members of the fire department silenced the system but were “unable to reset, owner calling alarm company for a fix and to find out why it did not trip our box.” An incident report prepared by 9-1-1 said the fire was reported at 3:31 a.m. Sept. 17 by a male cell phone caller who reported “heavy smoke from the 2nd floor of the Wide Open Saloon.” Within an hour a third alarm had been called and by 4:52 a.m. an e-mail went to the fire marshal from the communications supervisor saying “FIRE MARSHALL REQUEST LACONIA FOR STRUCTURE FIRE AT WIDE OPEN SALOON. 3 FLOOR HOTEL 2ND AND 3RD FLOORS HEAVILY INVOLVED. NO INJURY BUT SUSPICIOUS. FM MAX SCHULTZ NOTIFIED.” (Capitals included in e-mail) Investigating Fire Marshal William Clark did not immediately return The Sun’s phone call yesterday. — Gail Ober

WISCONSIN from page one Walker said: “The Supreme Court’s ruling provides our state the opportunity to move forward together and focus on getting Wisconsin working again.” Union leaders blasted the court’s decision. Phil Neuenfeldt, president of the Wisconsin State AFLCIO, called it “an affront to our democracy.” An avalanche of lawsuits is expected, since legal challenges couldn’t be brought until the law took effect. Tuesday’s ruling means the law is in effect but it wasn’t immediately clear when public employees would be affected. There are no plans to apply paycheck deductions retroactively, said Rep. Robin Vos, co-chairman of the Legislature’s budget committee; Walker’s top aide, Department of Administration Secretary Mike Huebsch, said the ruling was being reviewed. Many school districts and other public entities reached new union contracts before the ruling, and collective bargaining rights were curtailed. Had the court decision not come down Tuesday, Republicans

planned to put the collective bargaining provisions into a budget bill slated for debate that night so the changes could take effect during the court fight. Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald and Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald, both Republicans, said Tuesday that they always believed the bill was legally approved. “We followed the law when the bill was passed, simple as that,” the brothers said in a joint statement. “We’re finally headed in the right direction by balancing the budget and focusing on jobs, just like Republicans promised we would do.” Democratic Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne, who challenged the law after Republicans pushed through the legislation, said he was disappointed. “We’ve done the best we can,”he said.“It looks like we’ve lost.” All 14 of the state’s Democratic senators fled to Illinois in February to try to prevent a vote on the legislation in the Senate, but Republicans got see next page

HUOT from page one The expansion project came to the fore about a year ago. Typically, the state, through its capital budget, funds 75-percent of two state technical center renovations every biennial. In the next state budget, currently in a Committee of Conference in the state Legislature, Laconia and Pinkerton Academy were scheduled. In order to solidify a place in line, Champlin went to the School Board and City Council for approval of a $10-million total project but said last night “the number was established arbitrarily.” After a public planning process, the architect present the public with three options, including a stand-alone Huot Center at the Aavid Thermalloy, LLC building in the O’Shea Industrial Park that was ruled out as too expensive. The most viable option was the Dewey Street expansion but, at $11.9-million, it still exceeded the now $9.5 million budget. (As part of the capital

budget, Laconia’s state portion amount was reduced from $7.5 to $7.1-million). Architects came back to the table with Option F — a no frills one-story expansion along Dewey Street that gave no space back to the high school. Huot Committee members didn’t really like Option F and wished aloud last month that Option F could be completed with the same price tag as Option B. What architects call “Option B-Revisited” scales back the project a little to $11-million, scales back to expansion from 39,400 square-feet to $38,600 square-feet and readjusts the programs placement to better use the space. Instead of a 22,000 square-foot renovation, 17,000 feet of the existing Huot will be renovated and the rest would be turned over to LHS. The committee will meet again of June 28 and Champlin said he hopes some city councilors will attend the meeting.

GAY JUDGE from page one legal relief,” he wrote. The ruling does not settle the legal fight over the measure. The sponsors of the ban are planning to appeal Ware’s ruling. Lawyer Charles Cooper, who represents the conservative religious coalition that put the ban on a 2008 ballot, said he disagrees with the ruling., which filed the challenge, said it would appeal and “continue our tireless efforts to defend the will of the people of California to preserve marriage as the union of a man and a woman.” Meanwhile, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is considering whether Walker properly concluded that denying gays and lesbians the right to marry violates their rights to due process and equal protection. The court also is eyeing whether the religious coalition is legally entitled to appeal Walker’s verdict. Tuesday was a day filled with good news for the gay rights community. In New York, state lawmakers are within one vote of legalizing gay marriage. And in Los Angeles, the country’s largest consumer bankruptcy court sided with a gay couple seeking to file a joint bankruptcy petition, taking the extraordinary step of declaring that the federal law prohibiting same-sex marriages is unconstitutional. Same-sex couples can legally marry in Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont

and the District of Columbia. Ware’s opinion came in response to an April motion by coalition lawyers that sought to have Walker’s ruling vacated on conflict of interest grounds. Walker publicly revealed after he retired in February that he is in a 10-year relationship with a man. Rumors that he was gay had circulated before and after the trial. Walker did not attend Monday’s hearing on the matter and has declined to comment on the bias allegations. Chad Griffin, president of the American Foundation for Equal Rights, the group that spearheaded the successful effort to overturn Proposition 8 in Walker’s court, called Ware’s decision to reject the challenge a precedent-setting victory that advances equal rights and treatment for all Americans. “This bigoted and homophobic motion will prove to be a real low point in the struggle for equality and full civil rights for gay and lesbian people,” he said.

MURDER from page 2 we’re not sure exactly how much history and how indepth, that’s what Concord (police) is investigating.” Neighbors said the family had moved into the house about a year ago. The house was set back in the woods and only part of the driveway can be viewed by from the street. Autopsies on the couple were expected to be completed Wednesday. The investigation is ongoing.

from preceding page around the maneuver by convening a special committee to remove fiscal elements from the bill and allow a vote with fewer members present. Walker signed the plan into law two days later, on March 11. Ozanne filed his lawsuit the next week claiming Republicans didn’t provide the proper public notice of the meeting in violation of state law. Sumi, who initially heard Ozanne’s lawsuit, issued a temporary order blocking publication of the law while she weighed the arguments. Then last month, she declared the law void. In vacating Sumi’s ruling, the Supreme Court said she had “usurped the legislative power which the Wisconsin Constitution grants exclusively to the legislature.” The court also rejected arguments that Republicans violated Wisconsin’s open meetings law.

Teachers aim to get young students in motion By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Teachers at Woodland Heights Elementary School have implemented a new method which they believe will improve student attention, learning and information recall. The teaching technique requires no additional materials, personnel or funding, nor does it distract from instructional time. That’s because the technique, called “movement breaks,” simply encourages children to do something that should come naturally – move around. “We’ve always incorporated movement – it’s part of our philosophy as a team,” said Kate Shumway-Pitt, one of the fifth grade teachers at Woodland Heights. The incorporation of motion was more informal, though, prior to a training session this winter with Tammy Levesque of Lakes Region Healthy Eating Active Living. Meeting with Levesque, ShumwayPitt and colleagues Jessica Ortolf and Ann Peterson began to think of movement as a critical part of the school day. For the past few months, they’ve make it a point to get students out of their seats and moving for a total of about 20 minutes each day, a couple of

minutes at a time. Levesque said the “movement breaks” grew out of a more general concern that, despite statistics showing child obesity is at high levels in Belknap County, students are likely to only have about 40 minutes of physical education per week. So, Levesque worked with educators to find a way to incorporate physical activity into the classroom. Training on the technique has now been made available to teachers at all of the city elementary schools. Results are anecdotal so far, but the three fifth grade teachers at Woodland Heights are won over. “I think it’s definitely important – the kids definitely pay attention better after a movement break,” see next page More than 40% of back and neck injuries are a result of a motor vehicle accident.

from preceding page said Ortolf. “Because we can’t have physical education, it allows us an opportunity to get kids moving around,” said Peterson. “We know kids are pretty sedentary,” ShumwayPitt said. Understanding that many students aren’t active outside of the school day, she and other teachers found ways to infuse activity into the school day. Instead of walking their homework to the Shumway-Pitts’s desk, students do walking lunges. Ortolf leads her students in quick yoga stretches. Peterson encourages students to invent games and develop rules of play. In some cases, the movement is woven into the instructional activity. In other cases, the teacher recognizes that students are losing focus and need to get their blood flowing again. As Shumway-Pitt sees it, the movement breaks are not in addition to teaching but rather in support of it. “We see a correlation to academic improvement and movement,” she said. Students who have recently had a brief exercise are able to think clearer and focus better, she said. She’s also found that combining physical movement during review sessions helps students remember information later. Now, instead of having students sit with a pile of flash cards of multiplication facts, Shumway-Pitt places the cards on treads of a stairwell and students recite each math fact as they climb and descend the stairs. Bella Smith, a student in the class of ShumwayPitts, is also a fan of the movement breaks. With her teacher’s blessing, Smith has started walking around her classroom during reading time, book in hand, instead of sitting and reading. She said it helps her

concentrate on the story. “I didn’t think they were very interesting when I was sitting, I though books were more interesting when I was walking around. I don’t know why, I am able to concentrate more.” Smith, who has discovered a love for mysteries and adventures – “If it’s a good book” – hopes that she’ll be able to take movement breaks when she enters middle school next year. Levesque wasn’t surprised to hear that increased

movement brought with it a greater ability to learn and behave.

ity of construction would be compromise. Speaking to the council he said that state law requires a thorough review of plans, which cannot be undertaken without architectural or engineered plans. Stewart showed the councilors a set of hand drawn plans, lacking any measurements or specifications, which he said he was expected to review and approve. At the same time, he distributed plans prepared by a design professional, which despite lacking the seal of either an architect or an engineer, he described as “substantially compliant.” “It’s a big deal,” said Morrissette, who repeated his misgivings, asking the councilors “why Laconia wants to be so different?” He shared Stewart’s concern for safety and quality, but said that both “come down to the quality of work. Good plans do not necessarily give you a good home.” Morrissette also took exception to a statement in Stewart’s memorandum that “the quality of homes built in Laconia today is poor.” He said that builders in the city were struggling and “I don’t think that comment should have been made. Anything that can be done to help us would be appreciated.” Councilor Bob Hamel (Ward 5) assured Morrissette that neither the ordinance nor Stewart’s remark were directed at him. “It’s to catch the ones who aren’t doing it right,” he said. Councilor Henry Lipman (Ward 3) took a similar tack. “Contractors have submitted professional plans but built badly,” he said, adding that the issue is “how to catch those doing shoddy work without putting the good people in a bad place.” When you’re trying to save, every little bit helps.

LACONIA — The City Council this week referred controversy over an ordinance requiring architectural or engineered plans for single and two-family residences to its Government Operations and Ordinances Subcommittee and in the meantime asked Code Enforcement Director Bill Stewart to use discretion in reviewing proposals. Last month, Kevin Morrissette, a local homebuilder, asked the council to repeal the requirement. He explained that the ordinance is unknown elsewhere in the state, doubted that it has ever been enforced and noted that it would add between $3,000 to $5,000 to the cost of a new home. Moreover, he pointed out that the requirement does not apply to commercial projects of less than 4,000 square feet. In a memorandum to the council, Stewart advised against repeal, warning that without professionally prepared plans and specification the safety and qual-

SWAT Team called out to deal with distraught Gilmanton man Wiggin said the man came out of the house but when he immediately went back inside without cooperating with O’Brien, O’Brien called the BRSOG. Wiggin said the team surrounded the house and tried repeatedly to contact the man with a bullhorn. He said a power outage in the area coupled with poor cell phone reception hampered the team. About seven hours later, Wiggin and O’Brien saw the man, who apparently left the home before BRSOG could respond, coming from the woods. The two took him into custody, “after a brief struggle,” removed the loaded handgun from his possession and took him by police cruiser to Lakes Region General Hospital. Wiggin said the man remains under police guard and will be evaluated by hospital personnel and likely taken elsewhere for further evaluation and treatment. — Gail Ober

Tips offered on how to identify & prevent elder financial abuse LACONIA — To spotlight June 15, “World Elder Abuse Awareness Day”, Laconia Savings Bank is offering tips on how to identify and prevent elder financial abuse. According to the Department of Health and Human Services, seniors throughout the United States lose an estimated $2.6-billion or more annually due to elder financial abuse and exploitation. “Seniors are valued members of our community and it is our responsibility to ensure they live safely and with dignity,” explained Carolyn Peverly, senior vice president — Deposit Operations & Administration for Laconia Savings Bank. “They can steer clear of financial abuse by being alert to the signs and knowing who to turn to for help.” — Never give your Social Security number, account numbers or other personal financial information over the phone unless you initiated the call. — Don’t open e-mails from unknown sources, and beware of any notice claiming you have won a lottery. — Shred receipts, bank statements and unused credit card offers before them away. — Review your monthly accounts regularly for any unauthorized charges. Report lost or stolen

checks immediately. — Order copies of your credit report once a year to ensure accuracy. — Lock up your checkbook, account statements and other sensitive information when others will be in your home. — Do business with companies you know are reputable, or first check their references and credentials. Beware of any home improvement contractor that comes to your door or tries to sell you services over the phone. — If a stranger needs to send you payment for something, insist on a check for the exact amount. Never accept a check for more and wire the difference back. — Never let someone pressure you into agreeing to loan terms before you’ve had a chance to review them in writing with a trusted adviser. — Report any unusual account inquires you receive—whether by phone or e-mail—to your banker, who will take measures to protect your account and notify authorities. — Carefully choose trustworthy people to act as your agent in all estate-planning matters.

GILMANTON — A unidentified Stage Road man was hospitalized yesterday following a seven-hour stand off with local police and the Belknap County Regional Special Operation Group — commonly referred to as the SWAT Team. Sheriff Craig Wiggin said the 64-year-old man, who has not been charged with anything criminal, was not acting rationally. The man’s wife reported to local police around 1 p.m. yesterday that her husband was threatening to kill himself and was holding a loaded handgun to his head. Wiggin said she was able to leave the house safely and call police. Chief Phil O’Brien went to the home but reported the man was “belligerent” and “not acting rationally.” O’Brien, who knows the man, called for assistance from police in neighboring Barnstead and Alton.

‘Signature of Excellence’ lecture series to be hosted by League of NH Craftsmen MEREDITH — The League of NH Craftsmen will host three summertime “Signature of Excellence” lectures that will provide the public with an informative and in-depth view of how fine handcraft is made. The series features three juried members of the League of NH Craftsmen — all skilled artisans and entertaining speakers — who will appear at The Chase House from 7 — 9 p.m. on Monday evenings. On June 27, Duane Martin of Newfields will speak about Intarsia — 3D Art Made from Wood. Intarsia is a woodworking technique that uses varied shapes,

sizes, and species of wood fitted together to create a mosaic-like picture with an illusion of depth. Martin will discuss his technique for making beautiful functional art pieces from wood. He created an intarsia of the iconic Old Man of the Mountain in winter that will be available for purchase. After spending 32 years as an electrical/nuclear engineer, Martin retired and moved to Newfields. As a hobby, he built cabinets and furniture. Martin took his skills in a new direction after reading an article in Wood Magazine by noted wood intarsia artist Judy Gale Roberts. He took a seminar with

Ms. Roberts and two years later, created an awardwinning intarsia project. He was juried into the League of NH Craftsmen in November 2009. Martin uses thick hard and soft woods of many species to get the color and grain pattern that enhances his art. He cuts pieces using a scroll saw, shapes the pieces by sanding and carving, and finishes them individually before gluing them to a backing board. He uses no stains, just the varnished color of the natural wood. Martin has made intarsias of historic personalities including George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Rev. John Wheelwright (Founder of Exeter), and President Barack Obama, as well as natural landscapes and iconic images. His work has been features in many League of NH Craftsmen exhibitions, as well as other art shows. Martin also works with art teachers in local schools to introduce the students and teachers to intarsia. On July 25, Michael Kraatz of Canaan will speak about Design and Fabrication of a Garden Sculpture. Kraatz will take listeners step by step through the process he uses to conceptualize, design, and fabricate a garden sculpture. Kraatz works with his partner Susan Russell in a hot and cold working glass studio that has been operating since 1975. He studied glass with Harvey Littleton at the University of Wisconsin and received his graduate degree from the Rhode Island School of Design. Russell has a BFA in design from RISD and an MA from Goddard College. The couple met teaching high school art in Lebanon and as independent artists built a 1,200-square-foot studio in Canaan. They design and fabricate architectural glasswork using their own blown and cast glass. Each of their pieces is conceived with artful consideration of its place in the environment and with the unique vision of the designer and client. Kraatz also teaches at AVA Gallery and Arts Center in Lebanon. He and Russell have completed commissions for free standing pieces and wall works for clients across New England. On August 15, William Schute of Wilton will speak about The Art of Wood Carving. Schute, who carves finely detailed sculptures, doors and entryways, signs, and other items, will discuss his process and technique. see next page

Landscape company helps Lakes Region Child Care Services playground BELMONT — Belknap Landscape Company Inc., as part of a NeighborWorks project, recently took an active role in the improvement of a Lakes Region Child Care Service (LRCC) playground. The Belmont Early Learning Center received the facelift thanks to a joint effort by volunteer parents, LRCC staff, and with material and labor contributions from Pike Industries and BLC, a Lakes Region landscape design-build firm. LRCC is dedicated to providing high quality childcare, which is affordable for families who live or work in the greater Laconia area. BLC employees coordinated efforts for the improvements, which included building new planting beds within the playground, planting BLC-donated drought resistant plant selections, and spreading an enormous load of play sand donated and delivered by Pike Industries. The children will learn how to grow their own vegetables in the new garden area in the center of the playground. Outside the playground fence, BLC crews planted wildflower seeds. NeighborWorks America is the country’s preeminent leader in affordable housing and community development. During the first week of June each year, NeighborWorks America and its network of local nonprofit organizations connect with families across the nation to celebrate and beautify local communities in an effort dubbed National NeighborWorks Week. There are a number of Lakes Region NeighborWorks Week projects planned where local NeighborWorks organizations mobilize volunteers, businesspeople, neighbors, friends, and local and national elected and civic leaders in a week of neighborhood change and awareness. Opportunities to get involved may be found at

‘Assessing 101’ instructional class presented by NH Department of Revenue MOULTONBOROUGH — The NH Department of Revenue (DRA) will present its instructional class entitled “Assessing 101” in the Training Room of the Moultonborough Public Safety Building at 4 p.m. on Thursday, June 23. “Assessing 101: Introduction to Assessing and Values Anew” is an informative hour-long presentation with questions and answers. Topics to be covered will include why property values are updated, the mass appraisal process, differences between an appraisal and an assessment, mass appraisal vs. single property appraisal, the role of the DRA, the statistical analysis, the ratio study report, the abatement process, and how the results are used by the

Town and the State. Gary Karp, Town Assessor, has scheduled this informational forum for the public in the hopes of further educating taxpayers in the run up to the release of the Town’s annual statistical update. The update, with proposed values effective as of April 1, 2011, is expected to be released in mid July of this year. That release will include information for taxpayers as to how to request a conference to review any changes proposed to the values of their property from the prior year’s assessment. Joel R. Mudgett, chairman of the SelectBoard said, “I’d like to thank DRA for coming to our Town to share this knowledge not only with my

from preceding page At the age of seven, Schnute knew what he wanted to do — carve. For a while he pursued a more traditional career in cell biology research, still carving wood whenever he could, until 1974, when his passion for wood sculpture developed into a full time endeavor. He moved back to Iowa to work and sold many of his pieces and built a house for himself and his family out of an old covered bridge. He relocated to the west coast, where he was successful in obtaining commissions for his work. After the publication of his book High Relief Wood

Carving and the inclusion of his work in other fine publications, Schnute became internationally known for his innovative designs. He has worked with respected architects and interior designers to develop feature pieces for private residence, corporate structures and churches nationwide. His studio, Oak Leaves Studio, and home are now in Wilton. All lectures are free and open to the public, and reservations are requested. Contact the Meredith Retail Gallery at 279-7920 or at least two weeks before the date of the lecture.

You will win the prize for “the most stamina.” You will keep going until there is no one else left standing, and you’ll continue for many hours beyond that point. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Though you’ve tried to be economical in your dealings, you now realize there is a degree of waste that must happen in order for you to create your new reality. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Monkeys and birds preen constantly. Goats like you are not as worried about appearances, though you’ll do something extra in this department now -like get a haircut or take an extra-long bath. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Who will do your bidding? When you are willing and able, you usually do it yourself. Once in a while, it’s nice to know you can trust someone else to do it for you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The one who finishes first is not the winner. The winner will be determined by some other criteria more subtle and strange -- for instance, the one who involves the most senses while listening. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 15). In the past, you might have deemed a circumstance as “unfair” and written it off as simply the way the world works. This year will be different. You’ll organize your world the way you want it and turn the fortunes in your favor. Your keen mind, practical ideas and network of connections make it all possible. Capricorn and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 48, 32, 11 and 6.

by Richard Thompson

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your way is no better or worse; it just is. As long as it works for you, it works -period. Try not to compare yourself to others in any way for the next 48 hours. Focus instead on your own scene. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will bring your very best efforts to the table. You’ll do what you can in the moment, and when the moment is gone, you’ll say, “Well, I did what I could.” And you’ll be right. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There’s a time you have only a dim recollection of, and if you think hard, you’ll remember it even less. Such a time will only be remembered when you relax and enjoy yourself. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll put on a good face for your friends. Is that really you? An internal struggle rages on, a battle between who you think you should be and who you essentially are. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your mood: content. There is nothing to need or want, and that’s a good feeling. Tomorrow your ambition kicks in anew, so enjoy the present peaceful mental state. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You would love to witness a mystical happening. As imaginative and openminded as you are, you would handle such a breach of the agreed-upon reality quite well. Hold on to hope, and such an event could happen today. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your steady approach to domestic matters makes your home a place of peace and tranquility. The stability you provide is a gift and is more necessary than you know.

Today’s Highlight in History: On June 15, 1215, England’s King John put his seal to Magna Carta (“the Great Charter”) at Runnymede. On this date: In 1219, forces led by King Valdemar II of Denmark defeated the Estonians in the Battle of Lyndanisse. In 1775, the Second Continental Congress voted unanimously to appoint George Washington head of the Continental Army. In 1836, Arkansas became the 25th state. In 1849, James Polk, the 11th president of the United States, died in Nashville, Tenn. In 1864, Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton signed an order establishing a military burial ground, which became Arlington National Cemetery. In 1904, more than 1,000 people died when fire erupted aboard the steamboat General Slocum in New York’s East River. In 1944, American forces began their successful invasion of Saipan (sy-PAN’) during World War II. B-29 Superfortresses carried out their first raids on Japan. In 1978, King Hussein (hoo-SAYN’) of Jordan married 26-year-old American Lisa Halaby, who became Queen Noor. In 1991, Mount Pinatubo in the northern Philippines exploded in one of the biggest volcanic eruptions of the 20th century, killing about 800 people. One year ago: In his first Oval Office address, President Barack Obama promised that “we will make BP pay for the damage their company has caused,” describing the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico as a “siege” on the shores of America.

Painter Robert Prapuolenis to speak at Lakes Region Art Association meeting June 20 LACONIA — Robert Prapuolenis, an accomplished Lakes Region and New York painter, will be the guest speaker at a Lakes Region Art Association meeting at the Taylor Community Woodside Building at 7 p.m. on Monday, June 20. Prapuolenis paints portraits and still lifes, but many of his paintings also involve landscapes and seascapes. While here in the Lakes Region during the summer season, his landscapes are of local scenes. While in New York during the winter season, he paints cityscapes. All involve perspective. In his presentation, Prapuolenis will demonstrate his use of line, color and object size to create “distance” on a flat canvas that, in turn, draws the viewer’s eye into his work. The public is welcome at all Association meetings. For additional information contact Gisela Langsten, 1st vice president, Lakes Region Art Association, at 293-2702 or e-mail CAPTION: Accomplished artist Robert Prapuolenis will demonstrate how he uses perspective in his paintings at a Lakes Region Art Association meeting at the Taylor Community Woodside Building at 7 p.m. on Monday, June 20.

Top handbell ensemble ‘Strikepoint’ to perform at First United Methodist Church in Gilford on June 22 GILFORD — Strikepoint, one of the world’s top handbell ensembles, will perform at First United Methodist Church at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 22. A handbell ensemble can be thought of as a living piano, with each of eleven ringers responsible for up to nine notes. Treble ringers may hold as many as six bells in their hands at one time, while bass ringers use their whole bodies to move 13-pound bronze bells with grace and finesse. Strikepoint rings on six octaves of bells (nearly the entire range of a piano keyboard) and frequently adds other instruments from chimes to a penny whistle to African percussion. Concert selections and audience favorites will include Bach’s Little Fugue, Grieg’s “Anitra’s Dance,” and Disney Studios’

“Under the Sea.” The group, based at First United Methodist Church in Duluth, Minnesota, has been touring annually since 1985. Bill Alexander, a nationally known handbell clinician and conductor, leads the directorless ensemble. Strikepoint is noted for capturing the enthusiasm of audiences with its dynamic style and accessible music. Concerts are designed to delight and stir listeners whether they know all or nothing about handbells. Among the comments frequently heard after programs, a favorite is, “If we’d known it was going to be like this, we would have made all our friends come.” There is no admission charge to this unique concert, but a $10 donation is suggested.

‘The Old Man of the Mountain: Substance and Symbol’ presented by Bristol Historical Society on June 23

BRISTOL — The Historical Society has received a grant from the NH Humanities Council to present “The Old Man of the Mountain: Substance and Symbol” at the Old Town Hall at 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 23. Maggie Stier will present the public program about New Hampshire’s most well-known landmark. The story of the Old Man of the Mountain is a story of NH itself, reflecting the state’s history, arts, literature, geography, philosophy, and even public policy. As the multifaceted story of the icon enfolds, the audience will be challenged to think about the different and evolving ways that this image has touched the public imagination over its 200 year history. The presentation will include images of paintings, literary passages, souvenirs, and film clips of interviews with those closet to the Old Man, and conclude with a discussion of current efforts to memorialize the state symbol. For more information call Lucille Keegan at 7442751 or e-mail

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, June 15, 2011— Page 21


Dear Annie: Two years ago, my son began dating “Layla,” who then became pregnant. I went out of my way to include her in our family. I bought maternity clothes and baby outfits, took her out for lunch and paid for her to join us on a family cruise. Layla e-mailed everyone to stay away from the hospital the day of the baby’s birth, as she wanted “bonding time.” I asked my son if I could bring flowers. He said “fine” and met me at the hospital. He invited me to get a peek at the baby through the window. I didn’t see Layla, but when she heard I had been there, she became extremely angry, and later, requests to see my new grandson were rebuffed. I sent an e-mail apologizing for upsetting her. I also suggested we seek counseling together. In response, she “unfriended” me from her Facebook page, sent me a list of all of my “wrongdoings” and told me I was not allowed to contact my son anymore. My son said he had to side with Layla because she is the mother of his child. My grandson is now a year old. I saw a therapist who recommended I distance myself, which I have done. My son finally called to say he is marrying Layla in two months. He said they want to meet with me in a public place to discuss the possibility of allowing me back into their lives, but with strict conditions. I told my son the only way I would do this is if both of them first agreed not to keep me from my grandchild without good reason. I said the boy would be horribly affected if his parents bounced family members in and out of his life. He replied, “Our baby, our terms,” and I haven’t heard from them since. It has taken me months to get back on an even keel, and I never want to go through this pain again. Am I obligated

to go to the wedding? Should I write them out of my life? Is there anything else I can do? -- Numb in Nevada Dear Numb: Layla sounds like a control freak, and your son has no spine. However, as the parents, they get to set the boundaries when it comes to their child, like it or not. If you want to see your grandson, you will have to play by their rules. It won’t be easy, but it can be done. Only you can decide if it’s worth the price. Dear Annie: There is a girl at my camp who keeps insulting my family. She calls them “stupid,” “annoying” and “lowlife losers.” I have asked her to stop, but she won’t. My parents know, but aren’t much help. I also talked to a counselor about it, but that didn’t work, either. It is hard sitting there doing nothing. Listening to her just makes me so angry. I need to know how to take care of this. -- T.T. Dear T.T.: This girl is trying to get a rise out of you, so the best thing to do is ignore her completely, as if you cannot hear her. You also could talk to your camp counselor or camp administrator about her abusive behavior, and check for additional tips on dealing with bullies. Dear Annie: This is for “Lost,” whose husband is on drugs. The marriage is over, but she is afraid to leave because she has no money and no job. Please tell her to go to a women’s shelter, which can be found through her local police or sheriff’s department. The shelter I was in provided counseling for my children and me, and helped with employment and housing. Please tell her not to give up. Help is out there, but you have to reach out and find it. -- No Name in Alabama
