GILFORD — The state commissioner of transportation has rejected a petition from selectmen to discontinue the portion of Route 11-B that merges into Route 11-A so the town can build a memorial park and erect a flag pole. In a letter dated June 7 and sent to selectmen, Commissioner Christopher Clement, Sr. said that while he appreciated the desire of the town to create a memorial triangle park and agreed with many of the legal statements in the petition, he is concerned with the safety of the proposal and would not grant the petition. According to N.H. RSA 230:55-62, a petition to the commissioner of transportation is the way to get a state highway discontinued. Specifically, Clement said the “shortcomings” include the design proposal and traffic volume, truck movements, turning lanes, signage and safety. He said the layout and drainage of the proposed park needs more development and since the see DOT page 14

Nationwide manhunt in progress for N.Y. surgeon who’s suspect in murder BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Surgeon Timothy Jorden saved the lives of patients with gunshot wounds, lived in big home by Lake Erie and owned four vehicles. He was a product of a working-class neighborhood who became an Army officer before coming home to earn his medical degree. Now the healer is linked to a killing. Police across the country were on the lookout Thursday for the 49-year-old trauma surgeon in connection with the shooting death of his ex-girlfriend in a building at the Buffalo hospital complex where they both worked. Police say the former Army weapons expert may be armed and should be considered dangerous. “He was an excellent surgeon. He saved so many lives. For him to take one is unreal,” said a stunned June DuPree, a neighbor of Jorden’s in an exclusive cluster of homes on a lakefront bluff.
But she and others also said the affable and accomplished doctor seemed different lately — thinner, not quite as friendly and less meticulous about appearances. Friends of the victim, meanwhile, offered glimpses of a much darker side. “I saw him at the beginning of the season and noticed how much weight he had lost,” DuPree said. “He said, ‘Yeah, I lost a little bit.’ But it was more than a little bit. It was a lot. He wasn’t too friendly that time I saw him. He just didn’t want to talk.” The search for Jorden began Wednesday morning when 33-year-old Jacqueline Wisniewski was found shot to death in a stairwell on the campus of the Erie County Medical Center. Police say she was shot four times. Heather Shipley, a friend of Wisniewski, told WIVB-TV that Wisniewski feared Jorden and that he wouldn’t let go after she left him because she
believed he was having affairs with other women. She said Wisniewski told her the doctor had put a GPS tracking device in her car and once held her captive in her home for a day and a half, wielding a knife. “She told me if anything happened to her, that it was him,” Shipley told the station. Jorden had been involved in two domestic incidents in neighboring Cheektowaga in 2003, police Capt. James Speyer said. He said he couldn’t release details but that the incidents did not involve Wisniewski. Buffalo Police Commissioner Daniel Derenda on Thursday called Jorden “a person of interest” in the administrative assistant’s death and said a nationwide alert had been issued advising police agencies that he was wanted for questioning. Officers combed through the grounds outside his home and for a second day, an Erie County Sheriff’s helicopter circled overhead.
BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — A man was accused of fleeing a hit-and-run accident with the victim still attached to his fender and fighting to get free. A van driven by Frank Rega struck a 23-year-old woman who was standing in front of a disabled car in Bridgeport on March 15, police said. The woman became stuck on the driver’s side fender, but Rega drove off, even as she was yelling at him and hitting him in the face in an attempt to get him to stop, police said. She eventually fell off the van, struck the roadway and suffered a head injury, police said. She was treated and released from St. Vincent’s Medical Center. Rega, 56, of Monroe, faces numerous charges including reckless endangerment, reckless driving, evading responsibility and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, the Connecticut Post reported. He was released after posting a $500 bond. Monroe police arrested Rega at his home. As they were handcuffing him, he told officers he had acted in self-defense, police said. A message seeking comment was left for Rega at his home Thursday. He was scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday.
conclusion on Thursday after just four days of testimony, with three more accusers taking the witness stand, including a young man who said the former Penn State assistant football coach raped him as a teen guest in Sandusky’s home. The eighth accuser to testify told jurors the abuse began with fondling and forced oral sex and led to several instances of rape in the basement of Sandusky’s Centre County home, where he spent more than 100 nights and where his muffled screams went unanswered by Sandusky’s wife, Dottie, who
“He got real aggressive and just forced me into it,” said the young man, now 18 and a recent high school graduate. “And I just went with it — there was no fighting against it.” He said under cross-examination by Sandusky lawyer Joe Amendola that the attacks sometimes left him bleeding but that he never sought medical attention. “I just dealt with it,” he said. Another accuser told jurors Sandusky called himsee SANDUSKY page 15
NEW YORK (AP) — A report that major central banks would be ready to pump money into the financial system after the Greek elections this weekend gave the stock market a late push higher. The Reuters report said major central banks were preparing for coordinated action if the results of Greek elections on Sunday strain global financial markets. The Dow Jones industrial average jumped 155.53 points to close at 12,651.91 Thursday. That’s a gain of 1.2 percent. The Dow jumped 100 points after the
report came out then pulled back. Investors are on edge ahead of Greece’s election this weekend because parties opposed to the terms of the country’s financial bailout could take control of the government. If that happens and the country leaves the euro, many fear the currency union could be torn apart and European banks could fail. The stock market began climbing in early trading after a tame inflation reading and another weak jobs report raised expectations that the Federal Reserve see STOCKS page 15

N.H. Attorney General investigating Exeter hepatitis C outbreak; suit filed
CONCORD (AP) — The probe into a hepatitis C outbreak at Exeter Hospital’s cardiac catheterization lab reached the courts Thursday, with the attorney general’s office announcing a criminal investigation and a civil lawsuit being filed on behalf of one of the infected patients. Twenty people, including a hospital worker, have been diagnosed with the same strain of the liverdestroying virus since state public health officials began investigating last month. On Wednesday, public health director Dr. Jose Montero said evidence so far points to drug diversion as the likely cause, which generally involves someone using a syringe to inject medication meant for someone else and then re-using the syringe on patients. Attorney General Michael Delaney said his office is working with police to determine if any crimes occurred. Meanwhile, a Concord law firm filed a
class- action lawsuit in Rockingham County Superior Court accusing the hospital of negligence. The case was brought on behalf of a 49-year-old man, referred to only as “Joe Doe,” who was treated for heart problems at the hospital in August and was notified this week that he tested positive for hepatitis C, a viral infection transmitted by blood that causes inflammation of the liver and can lead to chronic health issues. “He thinks he’s getting better from heart surgery, then he hears, ‘Hey, you might have a terminal illness,’” attorney Peter McGrath said. “My client’s wish is that this doesn’t happen to anybody else.” Since then, the man has suffered bouts of sleeplessness, high stress, and pain and suffering, according to the lawsuit. The suit alleges that the hospital failed to properly administer safe intravenous treatment, monitor safe blood samples and oversee the security
and control of its laboratory and cardiac units. “Negligent supervision is really what it is, not keeping eye on things,” McGrath said. In an interview with WMUR-TV, the hospital’s president and CEO apologized to the infected patients. “If it is determined that we’re responsible for this outbreak, we will be responsible for that cost,” Kevin Callahan said. Hospital officials declined to comment Thursday on the lawsuit, which must be certified as a classaction by a judge and make it through a special screening panel that evaluates all malpractice cases in the state in order to proceed. 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 see HEPATITIS page 15
CONCORD (AP) — A report says nearly half of the inmates released from New Hampshire prisons in 2007 have returned within three years, mainly because they were taking drugs, drinking or avoiding treatment. The state Department of Corrections report shows that 515 of the 1,095 prisoners released in 2007 had returned to prison by 2010. The Telegraph of Nashua reports many inmates violated parole either by committing new crimes or breaking rules of their parole. They didn’t check in with their parole officers, drank and associated with
criminals. Corrections officers are working with community-
based treatment programs, referring more parolees to them for help and hiring drug and alcohol counselors.

Independent voters will make or break Romney in Granite State DERRY (AP) — Perhaps no presidential battleground will test the leanings of critical independent voters more than the “Live Free or Die” state, the launching pad for Mitt Romney’s White House bid.

Parade will open Gilford’s 200th Birthday Party on Sat. By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
GILFORD — A equestrian parade which starts from the Gilford Community Church following the ringing of the church’s bell at 10 a.m. Saturday will kickoff this town’s 200th birthday celebration. June 16 is the date (1812) that the bill was passed by the N.H. Legislature creating the township, a breakaway from Gilmanton. The parade, which will feature antique fire engines, farm animals and Captain Morrill’s Fife and Drum will proceed toward the Village Field where the Gilford Community Band will present a concert until the ringing of another bell, this one at the Thompson-Ames Union Meetinghouse announces the 11 a.m. start of the opening ceremony, during which a flag which has flown over the nation’s Capitol will be presented to Police Chief Kevin Keenan and then raised by the Police Department’s color guard. Following the Pledge of Allegiance, led by Fire Chief Steve Carrier and the National Anthem, led by the Gilford Community Church Choir, and opening prayers, a series of speakers, including Town Clerk Denise-Morrisette Gonyer , Dr. Kelley Jean White, author of “A Gilford Offering’’ and Town Moderator and former Selectwoman Sandra McGonagle will talk about the town and its history. There will also be a cannon salute by Captain Morrill’s group followed by the cutting of a giant birthday cake made by Bill and Sally Bickford of Kitchen Cravings. Bill Bickford, who is chairman of the Gilford Bicentennial Committee, says that there’s a lot of enthusiasm from townspeople for the many events which are part of the 200th birthday celebration. “A lot of people are working real hard to make things happen that will create a lot of lasting memories,’’ says Bickford, who says that organizations like the Thompson-Ames Historical Society, the Opechee Garden Club, the Gilford Community Band, are all pitching in to help out along with dozens of community volunteers. ‘’I volunteered for this job because I really wanted
to do it. It’s a good way to give back to the community for how good people have been to us,’’ says Bickford, who says that both he and his wife are fascinated with the town’s history. That fascination is in full display on the walls of their restaurant, which are filled with pictures of the town’s history: farmers with teams of oxen, steamboats on Lake Winnipesaukee, Old Home Day celebrations, including one with Phil Roux with his pickup float from 1962; playbills from the Gilford Playhouse, once known as ‘The Playhouse of the Stars’; the former Glendale Station of the Lake Shore Railroad, the Gilford Outing Club’s rope tow shack and Sawyer’s Dairy Bar from the 1950s. ‘’A lot of them are reproductions from the Thompson-Ames Historical Society’s collection and there are a bunch that were loaned to us by Merrill Fay of Fay’s Boatyard, who has a huge collection of old photos. We really appreciate being able to share these with our customers,’’ says Bickford. For Sally, who is also a member of the Bicentennial Committee and the daughter of long-time Gilford selectman Wayne Snow, many of the photos have a personal link. There’s one showing her father with other Gilford Outing Club members at the rope tow shack. A photo spread from New Hampshire Profiles magazine shows blueberry pickers on Belknap Mountain. Her brother is one of the pickers. Other major events planned include a boat parade at the Gilford town beach on June 23; a bicentennial Civil War day on July 7 featuring the 12th Regiment Band, Civil War re-enactors and a Lincoln impersonator; a Bicentennial Pot Luck Social at the Gilford Community Church on August 11 at which Merrill Fay of Fay’s Boatyard will be the guest speaker. Gilford Old Home Day on August 25 will feature a giant parade with dozens of historically-themed floats, a 75th anniversary event for the Winnipesaukee Yacht Club on October 6 and a Bicentennial Snow-Bowl to benefit the Gunstock Preservation Society which will be held at the historic base lodge of the Gunstock Ski Area in November, which will also mark the 75th anniversary of the opening of the ski area.

Democrats & Republicans have lots of local holes to fill as filing period ends LACONIA — With the filing period for the primary election for state offices closing at 5 p.m. today, one or the other of the two major parties has yet to field a full slate of candidates for the House of Representatives in seven of the nine districts in Belknap County. Party committees may nominate candidates to vacancies on the primary ballot by notifying the Secretary of State not later than the Wednesday following the close of the filing period. This year the districts were redrawn to reflects the changes in population during the last decade reported by the United States Census Bureau. The redistricting plan has been challenged in the New Hampshire Supreme Court by a number of municipalities and individuals. Nevertheless, Secretary of State Bill Gardner has directed candidates to file in the newly redrawn districts. The nine districts in Belknap County return 18 representatives to the House. So far 14 Republicans and 11 Democrats have filed for the primary election on September 11. In 2010, Republicans won all 18 seats. District 1, consisting of Center Harbor and New Hampton, elects one representative. Only Ruth Gillick of New Hampton, a Democrat, has declared for the seat left open by the decision of incumbent Republican Tyler Simpson not to seek re-election. District 2, consisting of Meredith and Gilford, elects four representatives. Three Republicans — incumbents Colette Worsman and Bob Greemore of Meredith and newcomer Kevin Leandro of Gilford — and two Democrats — Bill Johnson and Lisa
Di Martiino of Gilford — have filed. In Laconia, District 3, where four seats are at stake, five Republicans — Don Flanders, Bob Kingsbury, Bob Luther and Frank Tilton, all incumbents, and Richard Deshaies, a newcomer — and four Democrats — Robert Fisher, David Huot, Charles Smith and Chad Vaillancourt — have filed. Sanbornton and Tilton compose District 4, which elects two representatives. Incumbent Dennis Fields and newcomer Tim Lang, both Republicans and both from Sanbornton, have filed. There is no Democrat on the ballot as of yet. In District 5, Alton and Gilmanton, two candidates, David Burchell a Republican and Deb Chase a Democrat, both from Gilmanton, have filed for the two seats. There are two seats to fill in Belmont, District 6, where two Democrats — Ron Cormier and George Condodemetraky — and no Republicans have filed. Barnstead, District 7, elects one representative. Two incumbent Republicans — Elaine Swinford and Guy Comtois — have filed to contest the primary. So far no Democrat has entered the primary. District 8 is one of two so-called floterial districts where the voters of Alton, Barnstead and Gilmanton will elect one representative. Jane Cormier of Alton, a Republican, is the lone declared candidate. The other floterial district consists of Laconia and Belmont with one seat. Incumbent Republican Harry Accornero and Democrat Beth Arsenault, both from Laconia, have filed. — Michael Kitch
from preceding page were uncomfortable with stamping a private entity’s name on a public building that has taxpayers footing much of the bill. The mayor, the city manager, and the
bank president met and agreed to the name. But the center’s sign will feature “Claremont Savings Bank” in smaller letters above the words “Community Center” and “City of Claremont.”

North Dakota shows why we are not Greece America is not going the way of Greece, and North Dakota has shown us why. Residents were given the opportunity Tuesday to vote their property taxes out of existence, and they chose not to take it. Why? Property taxes fund local government. Without it, communities would lose power to set their spending priorities. Lawmakers in Bismarck would have had to come up with over $800-million to replace the property tax revenue lost in 2012. The state is flush right now with gas and oil money, but energybased economies can go bust as well as boom. Anyway, serious tax reform should be done in a comprehensive fashion, with personal income taxes, corporate incomes taxes and sales taxes also taken into account. North Dakota’s voters snubbed a ploy by anti-tax forces to grab a tax cut with little thought for the immediate consequences or the future. Let’s be clear: Accepting taxation as a reality of modern civilization in no way implies that we like paying taxes or think they’re fair or approve of everything they support. If only self-described conservatives in Washington were so grownup. Leading Republican voices blame only spending for our debt. They warn that if America follows the Democrats’ vision, it will end up broke like Greece. But spending does not cause debt if enough revenues are raised to cover it. During the George W. Bush era, Republicans engaged in the double insanity of manic spending and reckless tax cuts. By demonizing the surplus left by Bill Clinton as overtaxation, they fed an anti-tax culture that has also made us more like Greece. Greece’s economic crisis stems both from heedless spending and a proud tradition of tax evasion. For example, when a tax collector on the island of Naxos recently went looking for cheats, a radio station reportedly broadcast his car’s plate number. Italy is also plagued by a culture of tax dodging. “Only fools pay,” goes an Italian saying. The well-to-do escape taxation through loopholes, deductions, cash payments and various havens.
Italians driving Ferraris to their villas claim near poverty. Newspapers have labeled this behavior “evasione totale.” Much of the money that government does collect comes from the workers, whose taxes are subtracted from their paychecks — sort of like here. Many Italians now want to stigmatize tax cheating. An Italian Facebook page called Friends of the Receipts is reporting restaurants and other small businesses that refuse to give invoices or receipts. Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti, an economist, has vowed to go after tax evaders. Republicans don’t publicly support tax evasion, but they do support legal avoidance through the complex tax code. And their rhetoric often stands in the way of sensible dialogue. To call nearly every tax a “burden” and any tax cut, however ill-advised, “relief” — or say that raising taxes on high-income people amounts to “punishing success” — transforms taxpaying from an unpleasant duty to an injustice or a sucker’s deal. When a debate moderator famously asked GOP presidential candidates whether they’d turn down $10 of spending cuts for $1 dollar of new tax revenues, all eight raised their hands. A few Republicans have improved the conversation. South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham broke with party orthodoxy by expressing interest in at least closing some loopholes. And former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has defended the tax hike endorsed by his father, President George H.W. Bush — a brave effort that may have cost the elder Bush a second term. One can only hope that softer talk and the vote in North Dakota point to a more mature debate. It would be one that goes: If you want less government, fine, but except during recessions, you must pay for the government you have. (A member of the Providence Journal editorial board, Froma Harrop writes a nationally syndicated column from that city. She has written for such diverse publications as The New York Times, Harper’s Bazaar and Institutional Investor.)
— LETTERS — I ask Quebec to put a stop to land purchases for Northern Pass To the editor, The Town of Campton selectmen have sent a letter to Premier Charest of Quebec asking him to please intervene in the buying of land in Coos county for the purpose of constructing a high voltage transmission line through N.H.This project is damaging to the relations of our two countries. I can speak for the people of N.H. and the majority of us don’t want it. This project will destroy what is sacred to our heritage, our mountains, they

LETTERS N.H. Coop smart meters simply measure total electrical usage To the editor, I am glad for the opportunity to respond to several erroneous claims put forth by Rosemary Landry of Meredith in her recent letter to the editor regarding New Hampshire Electric Cooperative’s (NHEC) smart meter program. By way of background, NHEC is installing new digital electric meters that are capable of reporting readings via a wireless communications network. To date, NHEC has installed approximately 60,000 new meters and expects to complete installation of all 83,000 meters by the end of 2012. In her letter, Ms. Landry asks whether NHEC will be using these meters to adjust members’ electric usage without their consent “to prevent overspending.” My answer is an emphatic no. The meters NHEC is installing are not capable of adjusting electric usage. These meters can only record electric usage, collecting the same type of information that the old analog meters have gathered since the Co-op was founded in 1939. Only a so-called gateway meter has the technology to remotely adjust electric usage. The only gateway meters the Co-op has installed are at the homes of 460 members who have volunteered to participate in a Time-based Rates Pilot program. These members have all given their permission to have the gateway meter installed. The gateway meter will communicate with an InHome Display, which will show participating members how much power they are using at that moment and how much it costs. This technology holds great promise for helping members save money and better manage their energy use, but only if they request it and authorize it. Ms. Landry further claims that the meters being installed by the Co-op “will be used to monitor everyone’s
behavior (sic) and be intrusive in our lives and homes.” Again, this is impossible. The meters being installed by the Co-op are not in any way surveillance equipment. These meters simply record the total electrical usage for the entire home as measured in kilowatthours. The new meters cannot tell how, or by what appliance or device, the electricity is being consumed. Total household usage is all that is measured, as it has been since 1939. Ms. Landry goes on to state that the installation of more than one electric meter on a building is illegal. This is untrue. Ms. Landry notes that she saw six meters installed on one apartment building in Meredith. This is standard practice in multi-unit dwellings and is in no way unsafe or illegal. Of greater concern is Ms. Landry’s reckless and completely unfounded implication that a recent fire at a multi-unit dwelling in Meredith was caused by a smart meter. According to the Meredith Fire Department, the cause of this particular fire was likely the improper disposal of smoking materials. The meters being installed by NHEC meet all federal safety standards. Tens of millions of smart meters are in use throughout the U.S. and around the world. There is no documented case of a properly installed smart meter causing a fire. Cherry-picking the Internet for alarming and misleading speculations and headlines in an effort to frighten and confuse, does a disservice to NHEC, its members and the public. I respectfully suggest that those who may disagree with NHEC’s efforts to improve and modernize its distribution system by installing smart meters try to stick to accurate facts and reliable information.

Bloated spending & big government policies not what N.H. needs To the editor, In his economic address this coming week, it has been revealed that neither administration officials nor Democratic strategists are expecting Obama to propose any new solutions for the sorry state of our national economy. Instead, it is said that Obama will once again focus on chastising
Congress for not passing his massive plan for economic overhaul (see:son of stimulus), which has already proven a zero percent jobs yield once before (see: stimulus). This exemplifies the current culture which pervades the Democratic party; “We don’t have any new good ideas, so lets recycle our old see next page

LETTERS Too much government money has been thrown at education
75% of women now believe there is no glass ceiling over them
To the editor, Kent Warner’s latest contribution offers $50 bucks for a slogan to bring attention to education. He decries the educational budget cuts, then lays them at the feet of those SOB Republicans. He takes one final swing at them for wanting low taxes to attract more business (and jobs) to the state. It continues to amaze me the total and complete ABSENCE of LOGIC and COMMON SENSE any single individual can display in just one letter to The Sun. Here goes Kent. . . If ever greater allocations of money for education obtained from HIGHER property taxes taxes or HIGHER tuitions produced smarter students this nation would be up to it’s eye balls in Einstein’s. IT ISN’T ! America already spends about the highest per pupil amounts on public education of any country on this planet and college tuitions have risen 300-percent in just the past couple decades, far out pacing inflation and faster than almost any other product or service in America including health care which donkey lovers can never stop yelling about. You do realize CUTS to education funding help force colleges to trim their fat and examine their business model of effectiveness both academically and economically? THE PRICE OF A COLLEGE EDUCATION HAS GROWN BEYOND THE MEANS OF MIDDLE AMERICA. Water main size pipes of money from state government or the federal government do nothing more than act as FAT to increase wages and or to avoid making the tough decisions to CONTAIN education costs. Obama spent $835-billion on a stimulus that did ONE THING — it allowed states to DELAY making TOUGH budget choices required in a recession, LIKE EVERY PRIVATE BUSINESS HAD ALREADY DONE. Money we are now in DEBT for! There is absolutely not one scintilla of evidence ANYWHERE that giving education MORE money ANYWHERE has EVER produced a BETTER PRODUCT. In fact every speck of evidence suggests just the opposite. Americans now carry more than one trillion dollars in college debt. More money than charged on every credit card in America. Why? Because college tuitions have grown so fast that ever increasing amounts of money must be borrowed to PAY for it. Uncle Sam offers cut rate loans which are seen by colleges as nothing more than justification to raise tuition fees, It
To the editor, The professor of peace has once again been transformed into an attacking pit bull with psychic powers. Professor Sandy, “citizen of the world”, paragon of patronization, shows all readers of The Sun why liberal college professors should not be gilded with unbridled mind control over the youth in our country. Yes folks, appearances can be deceptively attractive to young, naive minds. Gene Danforth gave verifiable examples of the damage being done by liberal professors. Steve Earle has called the professor on the carpet for the blatant mistruths he hurled while referencing Bob Meade’s coherent letter regarding working women, pay and performance. Perhaps given your latest arrogant tirade, one might refer to you as Professor Pecksniffian. If the sanctimonious shoes fit, then by all means Professor Sandy, wear them with condescending glee and ignorance. Students, perhaps you can help the professor remove his blinders so that he can see the world as it truly is. I beseech those of the female persuasion, don’t you dare let him dispense pity on you for supposedly being so maligned by those of the opposite gender persuasion. Should the professor choose to venture beyond the secure tenured walls of his retro cognitive view of the world and indulge in some open minded critical thinking, here is an update of what is going on in the workplace in the 21st century. Oh, and professor, you will not find the following information gleaned from the recent White House conference on “Women in the Economy”. No, the following references are from a recently published book written by Liza Munday entitled,
from preceding page bad ones”. This culture is also present in New Hampshire’s Democrats as well. For the first time in over a decade, a viable candidate for governor has raised the possibly of both an income tax and a sales tax, while the other Democrats shy away from directly endorsing a tax but continue to trumpet bloated spending and big government policies. This is NOT what N.H. needs. As taxpayers and voters, we cannot stress this hard enough. What New Hampshire and America need are less pressure from a taxation and regulatory structure which kills jobs and stifles
is why the increases in college costs NEVER STOP. The truth is TOO MUCH money has been thrown education’s way using the same loony tune logic Kent Warner espouses. Even worse, it has bought us NOTHING but BUY more failure. Graduation rates peaked decades ago. Every new competition with foreign countries continues to show Americas slide behind many countries that spend FAR LESS per student. The recent high visibility recall election in Wisconsin PROVES beyond a doubt taxpayers have HAD IT with glad handing teachers exorbitant wage/benefit deals jack hammered on them by BIG MUSCLE TEACHERS’ UNIONS. The public union gravy train is OVER and the taxpayers of Wisconsin proved it is. One of Americas celebrity Democrats, Rham Emanuel (Obama’s former chief of staff and now mayor of Chicago) is taking on the teachers’ unions head on. He wants them to work more hours and offers them a 2-percent wage hike. They want a 24-percent hike in a city stuffed to the absolute brim with failing kids who cannot read or write and with a percentage of failing schools among the highest of any city in the country. If your honest FIRST CONCERN is about the kids, Kent, then what you need to do is start campaigning to get UNIONS OUT from control of education at every level. Unions are the underlying CANCER of education. The MISSION STATEMENT of any union is NOT the successful education of children. In fact the objectives of UNIONS in almost every regard is the exact opposite. Unions are not about producing productivity improvements and innovations in education to offset wage hikes. In fact unions FUNDAMENTALLY oppose efficiency because it can reduce membership and DUES COLLECTION. UNIONS care NOTHING about the grade scores of kids. They only care about union dues being raised with teacher wages/benefits. UNIONS DESPISE merit pay. They want one job, one pay and no recognition that teaching ability varies from A to Z. Every aspect regarding unions works AGAINST kids getting the best education possible and it works AGAINST taxpayers. Unions produce the HIGHEST cost product possible while assuring the LOWEST QUALITY product. AND THAT IS EXACTLY THE RESULT WE HAVE GOTTEN. Tony Boutin Gilford spending. New Hampshire doesn’t need to spend more, it needs to spend smarter. As someone who is just starting his career, I have a great amount of concern for the future of our state, particularly regarding the ability of my generation to find jobs that allow us to build our futures in New Hampshire. That is why I enthusiastically endorse Josh Youssef to be our next state senator. Josh’s business experience and small government sensibilities are precisely what our state needs to rebuild our economy for the 21st century. Nick Zaricki Laconia
“The Richer Sex”. (1) single women in their 20s without children, on average, make more money than their single male counterparts in America; (2) about 37-percent of working wives out-earn their hubbies; (3) women are projected to make more than their male counterparts across all levels of employment in the next generation; (4) according to the bureau of labor statistics, in 49 of the past 50 months unemployment has been lower for women than men; (5) women now receive roughly three fifths of both Bachelor and Master degrees. The National Journal Heartland Monitor Group reports that 75-percent of women say they believe they can now advance as far as their talents will take them regardless of gender. Young women in college, don’t you dare let liberal professors tell you otherwise. Discrimination in the workplace continues to decline with over two thirds of women reporting no discrimination in their workplace. So, my dear professor Sandy, why don’t you show some fortitude and jump right off that phony war on women bandwagon. Isn’t that what your smear of Bob Meade was really all about? Here’s a memo to all the modern day liberal, progressive, statist, central planners out there. Conservatives, libertarians and tea party types are not the knuckle dragging neanderthals you portray them to be. Every time you try to malign them with lies and bludgeon them with your twisted propaganda, you are going to be called on it. This is a fair warning. Are you paying attention Professor Sandy?

LETTERS Men can’t evaluate women’s performance objectively? Ridiculous To the editor, John Demakowski was right, Professor Sandy would be better served by submitting his columns as book reports rather than commentary. I would like to add that the professor might also be better served by writing letters on topics he knows something about . . . as difficult as it might be to find that something. In Tuesday’s issue of The Laconia Daily Sun, while trying to demonstrate to women that he supports their cause, he actually demeans their accomplishments. Perhaps some of Professor Sandy’s assumptions can be excused as it appears that he has no reference point aside from his tenured position. However, I am not as kind and gentle as Mr. Demakowski and I prefer to point out some of the professor’s failings. Back in 1963, I was working at our company headquarters when the Equal Pay Act was signed into law by President Kennedy. Immediately after that, women received pay adjustments which brought them up to the same levels as their male counterparts. In addition, the company paid huge amounts to them as retroactive compensation. From that point on, in our company, gender was not a distinguishing factor, performance was. Over my career I worked with many people with various talents and abilities. Some achieved success because of their intelligence, others because they simply outworked their competition, others because they had academically attained knowledge that was useful in performing their assigned task, and so on. Managers came in all genders and skin pigmentations. Some were “up through the ranks” and some had been highly recruited for the company’s fast track management development program. Managers at one level came together to rate and rank those who were one or more levels below them. That rating and ranking was based on the subordinates “performance”, not their gender, or skin color, or level of education. In the tenure cocoon that surrounds him, the professor has probably never been part of putting together a business plan. Words like Mission, Objec-
tives, Strategies, and Tactics may sound militaristic to him, simply because he has never been privy to things outside the academic world . . . and, in spite of my many times suggesting he spend some time with professors of business to get a grasp on real world issues, he seems to have chosen to take pride in maintaining his ignorance of the business world. The professor’s words are devoid of integrity. First, he has a comprehension deficit when it comes to rating and ranking on a bell curve. In the companies I worked for, women who performed better than men were paid at a higher level than their male and female counterparts, because they earned it. That may be foreign to the professor who has told me, in private communications, that at Plymouth State, the professors want everyone to get paid the same. It doesn’t matter if they’re worst or first; give them all the same raise. The next absurdity from the professor is that men can’t evaluate women’s performance on a gender neutral basis. I think we need to get the proverbial “donkey stick” out and use it on the professor’s noggin. There are many women in higher management and executive positions. Obviously that wouldn’t have happened if their male supervisors didn’t evaluate them based on performance, not gender. However, these numbers require a deeper understanding on the types of degrees that have been sought by men and those sought by women. For example, over four times more engineering and computer science degrees are awarded to men than to women. The reverse is true in the fields of education, library sciences, social services, and psychology, where women dominate. Which fields do you think are more useful to businesses? Many companies have expressed concern that our colleges are turning out students who, quite simply, haven’t learned the skills that businesses are looking for. Professor Sandy, it appears, is a contributor to that problem. Bob Meade Laconia
GOP would rather you drive off bridge than make Obama look good To the editor, Who to believe this time around, before we fall apart? They will say anything, anytime and to anyone just to get elected for all those perks. Time to eliminate the perks to make them work for the American people. They spend most of their time fundraising, going on “fact finding” trips to exotic places that we will NEVER see and probably have never even heard of. Who cares, as its not their money they are spending. If they want a vacation let them spend their own money on it. Like Romney comparing our eduction system to some overseas schools. WE should “follow” their example he says. Are their schools better than ours? All this while attacking the school unions. Teacher layoffs are at the top of his list of things to do. Remember he still has that $10,000,000 invested in his son Tagg’s charter schools PE firm. Now the Republicans are the party of the “gay”. Book early for P-town as there might be that fact finding trip there this summer. This was an early switch this morning so the facts are still unclear. Still a little confused on how this has anything to do with jobs. The job bill is in the House NOW, so pass it Republicans, it has passed the Senate. It creates about 1-million jobs, will lower the unemployment rate and will make our infrastructure safer. But the lowering of our unemployment rate is what bothers the Repub-
licans because it makes Obama look good and that is the last thing they want. They would rather have you drive off a collapsed bridge than make Obama look good. They don’t care about you or the rest of us because we aren’t rich enough to donate. They only care about the Republican Party and NOT the country and that, to me, is treason. Both parties have made mistakes, spent money recklessly and have used the job for personal gains. Time for this to STOP. Both parties have good ideas but rarely follow up on them. Republicans said they were for responsible spending while Bush ran up large unfunded expenses. Romney should come clean with his tax and finances history. Obama has complied with birth certificate complaints (except to Trump). Now both parties are doing the finger pointing thing at each other over — you did — no I didn’t — yes you did — etc. That’s just wasting our time because we really don’t know who is telling us the truth — changes day by day. My idea is this. Fact check each statement before posting -— will delay a day or so. Lastly, NO more debates or political ads for a week before the elections. Let the voters figure out who is telling the truth and who isn’t without anyone trying to influence them. Might even work. Jon Hoyt Bridgewater
Times says leaks came right from Obama’s national security team To the editor, Interesting things are happening in Washington these past few weeks. I just wonder if liberals and Democrats are paying any attention or just listening to the Obama speak out of the White House? Sen. John McCain condemned the security leaks coming from the White House and the president’s press secretary Jay Carney called the charges “grossly irresponsible”. Really? The N.Y. Times says the leaks came from “aides” to the president and “members of the president’s national security team.” David Sanger of the Times and author of one of the stories wrote that some of his sources
would be fired for divulging classified material to him. Now someone is wrong here, either Carney or McCain and the N.Y. Times. Who do you trust in this instance? Attorney General Holder has assigned two assistant JD attorneys to investigate the case. This is the same Eric Holder who is stonewalling the hearings on Fast and Furious the gun running fiasco and is now being threatened with contempt of congress. Again, who do you trust? Did anyone over there hear what long time Democrat leaders like John Kerry, Dianne Feinstein, and Pat Caddell had to say about it? Really now, see next page

STADIUM from page one contributed to redesigning the playing fields. Noting that the artificial turf field will be lined for soccer, lacrosse and field hockey as well as football, she said that “it will be built for everyone.” Outgoing high school principal Steve Beals, who serves on the council of the New Hampshire Interscholastic Athletic Association, said that “this facility will be among the showcase sites in the state,” noting that it will become a venue for tournaments and championships. LHS football coach Craig Kozens remarked, “This will no longer be football field, but an athletic complex.” School Superintendent Bob Champlin said that the goal of the capital campaign is to raise $1-million to supplement public funding to expand the athletic field and build science laboratories. The Joint Building Committee is weighing two options for the playing fields. So-called Plan B would move the field slightly towards the east by excavating part of the hill at the foot of Bobotas Field, creating additional parking for about 100 cars behind the high school, but leaving the steep section of the hill nearly intact at a cost of $2,049,000. The plan preferred by the committee, Plan A2, calls for radically altering the terrain east of the football field by removing the hill and creating two terraces for playing fields stretching from the rear of the school building to the far side of Bobotas Field at a cost of $2,628,000, or $579,000 more than Plan B. In addifrom preceding page who do you trust? All this and more just backs up what Ed Kline, former editor in chief of the N.Y. Times, former foreign editor of Newsweek and current contributing editor of Vanity Fair had to say about the Obama administration in his book “The Amateur.” Now Democrats, don’t get all mad at me, I’m not the one saying these things and it’s mostly other Dems. But I do have to ask, is this the change you can believe in and the most open and transparent administration you were promised? And oh, by the way, these are all checkable facts. Steve Earle Hill
tion, both plans require bleachers and lighting costing $471,000. Altogether the cost of Plan A2 and the science laboratories exceed the construction budget, including the cost of design, engineering and professional services, by approximately $1.9-million. With Harvey Construction Corporation of Bedford set to break ground on Monday, time is of the essence. Champlin said that the JBC has until September 1 to choose between the two plans for the playing fields and until February 1 to choose less expensive lighting and seating. In any event, casting an eye to Kozens, he said that “this field will not be touched until we win the state championship. Then this campus will become what everyone wants it to be.” ROMNEY from page 3 tion each side expects will be a nailbiter to the end. Indeed, in some ways, the battle for this state is almost personal. “Gov. Romney has a very special relationship with New Hampshire,” says Jim Merrill, a top New Hampshire-based strategist for both of Romney’s presidential campaigns. Romney grew up in Michigan and is registered to vote in Massachusetts. But he formally declared his candidacy on a New Hampshire farm one year ago, spends summer weekends in a vacation home on the state’s largest lake and launches his six-state bus tour here Friday. Despite the familiarity, there is little doubt that Romney — sometimes dubbed an “adopted New Hampshire son” — faces a steep climb. Recent polls give Obama an early edge. Romney also is just beginning to awaken a local campaign apparatus that’s largely been dormant for months. Obama’s team, meanwhile, activated its grassroots network long ago. The walls were still bare in parts of Romney’s state headquarters last week, the same day Obama’s team hosted nearly two dozen house parties across the state. Scores of Democratic volunteers gathered at strangers’ kitchen tables, on front porches and in sewing rooms to make calls, recruit more volunteers and attack their Republican opponent. see next page

from preceding page “I’ve loved Obama since the beginning,” says Mary Hogarty, an energetic 72-year-old retiree who opened her small Derry home to two dozen Obama volunteers she had never met. She said she thinks the economy is “better than people make it out to be.” She is not alone, especially in a state with an economy stronger than the nation’s. New Hampshire’s unemployment rate stands at just 5 percent, among the best in the country, compared to the nationwide average of 8.2 percent. Romney argues that any economic success is in spite of — not because of — Obama’s leadership. That’s an argument Republicans are making in other swing states with below average unemployment rates — Iowa, Wisconsin, Ohio and Colorado among them. The latest University of New Hampshire poll showed that half of voters in the state approve of Obama’s job performance. The survey, conducted before the economy showed signs of softening in April, gave Obama a 9-point lead. Independents — the group expected to decide contests in key battleground states — favored Romney. Republicans slightly outnumber Democrats in New Hampshire, but nearly 40 percent of voters are not registered with any party. “Right now our polls are showing Obama in the lead and his approval rating has ticked up slightly,” says UNH pollster Andy Smith. “But come November, this race is going to be neck and neck, probably decided by 1 percent.” It may come down to which side can drive turnout. And on that measure, Obama’s organization has a distinct early advantage. Romney was a regular New Hampshire presence before the state’s first-in-the-nation primary in January, but spent subsequent months traversing the country fighting his GOP opponents. He returned to New Hampshire in late April and delivered what most consider his opening general election address when it became clear he was his party’s presumptive presidential nominee. Since then, consumed by fundraising across the country, Romney has campaigned in New Hampshire just twice. His state headquarters opened less than a week ago and he has since opened just one other office.
The Obama campaign, by contrast opened its eighth state office Thursday. Its Manchester headquarters is well worn, with young staffers buzzing about and boxes of granola bars, chips and pretzels stacked in a corner. Vice President Joe Biden has visited New Hampshire three times this year. Obama and first lady Michelle Obama have visited once each in an official capacity, and Obama was expected to campaign in Strafford County on June 25. “Here in New Hampshire, we’ve been working all year,” says Mary Rauh, a member of Obama’s state steering committee. Local Democrats are motivated, she says, by the aggressive actions of the Republican-led state Legislature and their familiarity with Romney’s policies. “Mitt Romney has said, ‘Planned Parenthood, we’re going to end that,’” she says. “The good news is that it’s getting women moving. We’re going back in history 35 or 40 years.” After a post-primary respite, New Hampshire airwaves are beginning to fill once again with political advertising. As of last week, Obama’s campaign had spent more than $2 million on television ads, while Romney hadn’t spent anything, according to data obtained by The Associated Press. But Romney’s Republican allies have picked up the slack. His super PAC, Restore Our Future, and the conservative group Crossroads GPS have spent more than $2.1 million on New Hampshire advertising, most of it attacking Obama. New Hampshire was solidly Republican for a generation, but hasn’t supported a Republican presidential candidate since 2000. The evolving electorate is considered far less partisan than voters in other states, although Republicans scored historic gains in the 2010 midterms. With both sides preparing for a close election, the state’s four electoral votes could be critical in reaching the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency, according to Romney political director Rich Beeson. “This is not a state we won in 2008. We’re playing on the Obama team’s turf,” he says. “Any state that we can take away is a state that makes it harder for them and easier for us to get to 270.”

VIGIL from page one year that the Northeast POW/MIA Network Freedom Ride has joined in the vigil during Motorcycle Week, which this year also fell on Flag Day. Bob Jones, a local POW-MIA activist who was instrumental in starting the vigil, said it was the largest turnout ever for the vigil, so much so that the northbound lane of Rte. 3 was closed near the park in order to allow motorcycle parking for some of the 700 or more who showed up for the event. Governor John Lynch was on hand and spoke at the ceremony but left it up to Jones to announce that the bridge on Rte. 3 south of the town is now officially designated as the POW/ MIA Vigil-Freedom Ride Bridge. Keynote speaker was retired U.S.
known as “The Lone Marine” for his work in the POW/MIA movement and especially for his stirring salute to veterans during the 2002 Rolling Thunder event, which has since become an annual event in which thousands of veterans ride their motorcycles through Washington, D.C., to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. ‘’I’m honored to be standing here in a community which has given so much support to POWs and MIAs and raised the awareness of so many people,’’ said Chambers. This year’s Freedom Ride was dedicated to Sgt. Bowe Berghal, a prisoner of war who has been held by the Taliban in Afghanistan since June 30, 2009. Jones and other speakers urged the U.S. government to do all in

from preceding page its power to ensure that Berghal is returned home safely. Jones even suggested that it might be a good strategy to negotiate for Berghal’s release, saying that it was done routinely to free journalists captured by insurgents. ‘’We should look at negotiating for an American soldier wherever the hell they are,’’ Mont, a 1940 Laconia High School graduate and World War II veteran, arrived in a National Guard Hummer and was wheeled into the middle of the crowd by his son-in-law Doug Shaw of Laconia, where he was greeted by Gov. Lynch and Laconia City Councilman Bob Hamel, whose father, Armand, had been held in the same prison camp as Mont.
Mont was a top ball turret gunner on a B-17 which crashed into the English Channel on Dec. 30, 1943 after it had lost two engines in a raid on Ludwigshaven, Germany. He survived and on a mission on Friday April 13, 1944 while attacking a Messerschmitt plant in Augsburg, Germany Mont’s aircraft was so badly damaged that the crew had to bail out. He was taken prisoner and spent the next 13 months in Stalag 13-B. Lynch said ‘’I can’t even imagine what it’s like being a prisoner of war and what it’s done to those who have been held that way. We should all be thankful for what the POWS have done for us and honor their service. And we must not rest until every one of them is accounted for.’’

DOT from page one proposal would require the use of public money, it would need right-of-way assessments, environmental impact studies and more engineering. “Well at least they didn’t say ‘no,’ said Selectman John O’Brien, who first came up with the idea to move an existing phone pole, erect a flag pole near the same spot, and build a small memorial to honor the Gilford residents who have served in the town’s police and fire departments. He said last week that he came up with the idea because the area within the triangle isn’t used for anything. O’Brien’s initial intent was to have the flag pole and memorial finished before the 10th anniversary of the 9/11, and in July of 2011, selectmen authorized a fundraising campaign that has raised about $3,000 to date, the amount the town initially estimated it would cost for the memorial. At some point, selectmen decided that creating a single “T” intersection with Route 11-B (or Intervale Road) ending in one spot on Route 11-A (Cherry Valley Road) would allow the town to discontinue
the Route 11B merge lane (the western side of the triangle) and tear up the existing pavement. In November of 2011, the selectmen authorized the expenditure of up to $9,200 for engineering of which about one-third remains unspent. The petition for the discontinuance also said that with the pavement gone, the town would merge the lot that is now inside the triangle with the lot to the immediate west of the triangle. It owns both although the state holds the right-of-ways. When the town broached the idea with the state by applying for a driveway permit, the state balked — citing most of the above reasons for wanting more research. Eventually, Public Service of New Hampshire agreed to erect a pole outside the triangle however, FairPoint Communications has yet to move the wires from the old pole inside the triangle to the new pole outside of it. Representatives of the Department of Transportation have said they support the idea of a “T” intersection and Clements in his letter denying the petition see next page

STOCKS from page one would offer more support for the U.S. economy. Applications for unemployment benefits rose last week, according to the latest government report. The four-week average increased for a third straight week, another sign that the jobs market remains weak. The government’s main measure of U.S. consumer prices fell in May by 0.3 percent, the biggest drop since December 2008. Analysts said the slowdown in price increases could make it more likely that the Fed will announce new steps to boost the economy when it meets next week. Low inflation gives the Fed more leeway to inject money into the financial system, keep interest rates low and encourage borrowing. “The markets are higher, I think, because there are enough investors who believe that this morning’s data on prices and jobless claims increase the case for more Fed easing as soon as next week’s meeting,” said Clark Yingst, chief market analyst at the securities and banking firm Joseph Gunnar. Yingst said the market could easily switch directions in the coming days. “Traders are just following the trend one way on one day, but are perfectly happy following it the other way the next.” The Standard & Poor’s 500 rose 14.22 points to 1,329.10. The Nasdaq composite gained 17.72 points to 2,836.33. HEPATITIS from page 3 of the lab’s patients since October 2010. 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. from preceding page for road closure suggested that Town Administrator Scott Dunn arrange a meeting with DOT District 3 Engineer Mark Morrill and Municipal Engineer Nancy Mayville to come up with a solution. Selectman Kevin Hayes, an engineer, told Dunn that he wanted to be the selectman who participates in the meeting.

SANDUSKY from page one self the “tickle monster” before embracing him in a shower. Also testifying was Anthony Sassano, an investigator with the attorney general’s office, who disclosed that the office learned of a key witness, Mike McQueary, after an anonymous letter was sent to Centre County prosecutors. Judge John Cleland told jurors there would be no court Friday and to return Monday. The 18-year-old, described as Victim 9 in court records, became known to investigators after Sandusky was first arrested in November and his mother summoned police to their home. He said he didn’t want to talk to them at first. “Who would believe kids?” he said. A few weeks later Sandusky was charged with two counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and other offenses in his case, among the most serious set of the 52 charges Sandusky has denied and is fighting. A third accuser, known as Victim 3, was an Army
National Guard soldier who testified Thursday that despite being fondled by Sandusky he had viewed him as a father figure and was crushed when he was sent to a group home and Sandusky never contacted him again. “I would pray he would call me and maybe find a way to get me out of there,” he said, “but it never happened.” He testified that he felt uncomfortable when Sandusky touched his genitals in bed and he would roll over to prevent anything else from happening but that he didn’t tell Sandusky not to get into bed with him. “He made me feel like I was a part of something, like a family,” the man said. “He gave me things that I hadn’t had before.” He said that he loved Sandusky and that Sandusky treated him like he was part of an extended family that made him feel “unconditionally loved.” Sandusky’s arrest brought disgrace to Penn State and led to the ouster of both the school’s president and its Hall of Fame football coach Joe Paterno.

James J. ‘Cooky’, Concannon, Jr., 84
The Landmark Inn 480 Main Street, Laconia, NH
Monday, June 18th 6:30am-5pm
LACONIA — James Joseph “Cooky” Concannon, Jr., passed away peacefully at his home in Laconia, NH on June 13, 2012. He is survived by his wife of 45 years; Maureen, and children; Cathleen and her husband, Christopher Fields, Sean, James and his wife, Christine, and Daniel. Also his beloved grandchildren Patrick, Brendan, Kelsey, Ryan, Molly, Macey, Jack, and expectant twin boys, as well as nieces Anne-Marie and Margaret Nelson and nephews Lenny and Jimmy Nelson. James was born in Hell’s Kitchen, NY on August 5, 1927 and raised in the Bronx as a devout Catholic by parents James and Margaret (Ahearn) Concannon that James liked to mention were “middle school drop-outs with a better education than anyone today.” He was predeceased by his brother Peter, sister Aileen, and nephew Peter Nelson. James graduated from Cardinal Hayes High School, attended Julliard and the City College of New York, and earned his doctorate from St. John’s University. While a surgery patient at Columbia Presbyterian in New York City, James saw a nurse and told himself he would marry her one day. James pursued that nurse – Maureen – with his hallmark headstrong manner and, in 1967, married her. In 1981, “sick of paying taxes to New York City, New York State, and New Jersey,” James moved his family to Laconia, New Hampshire. In New Hampshire, James worked as a child psychologist and maintained his love of music playing trumpet in the Joe DeRose band. He was passionately committed to his children, and became a fixture at their sporting events for many years. It was not uncommon to hear James’ booming voice offer a resounding difference of opinion with umpires and referees. His family was his greatest pride and joy and he never tired of bragging about

them. James loved big band jazz, Irish rebel music, concealed firearms, the New York Yankees, and explaining to people, especially Red Sox fans, why everything else stinks. All the water in the lakes of New Hampshire couldn’t wash the New York City off this city-boy, and he treasured regular conversations with lifelong friends from the old neighborhood. James loved people. He loved giving people a hard time, especially if they could give it back. He could elicit a telemarketer’s full biography over the course of an hour and never let them make their pitch. But he’d never forget their story. He was adored by those who knew him for his unstoppable sarcasm and sense of humor: In his final days, James was only able to speak intermittently. But, disliking his medical gown, he made it a point to ask his family and nurses why they had to stick him in a “Polish tuxedo.” He got the laugh. And he doesn’t care if that offends you. He was, in short, the best. He will be missed, loved, adored, and quoted always.

GHS seniors prepare Gilmanton Year-Round Library for summer GILMANTON — May 25 was a fine day for the Gilmanton Year-Round Library thanks to 10 diligent Gilford High School seniors who worked from 9 a.m. to 2 in the afternoon. Together the group of students mulched trees, shrubs, and the 80-foot perennial garden in front of the Library and planted bushes. In addition to these tasks they spent time raking out stones that had been left by the snow plows from the grass, carted away weeds and garden debris, washed all the windows both inside and outside and raked and weeded the long path from the road to the library The Gilmanton Year-Round Library community was very thankful for the cheerful hardworking GHS seniors who participated in this community service project. Although the students only had a quick pizza break to break up their long day of hard work, they didn’t complain. Thanks to their wonderful contribution of time and service, the library and surrounding grounds are picture perfect and ready for summer library patrons.

by Darby Conley
By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You know how having quiet time to pursue a hobby or interest or just to relax can be a complete luxury. You may take on a responsibility in order to give another person a break. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Why do you always get stuck with the argumentative people? It’s because you compassionately recognize their need to feel important and in control. You use what you know to defuse their sting. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Try to assume the best in others, even though you’ll probably have to remind them what they agreed to do for you. Chances are that forgetfulness and not malice is at the root of this. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Help will make your load lighter, and people will like feeling that they’ve contributed to your world. So ask for input from your friends and trusted colleagues, and use that input as much as possible. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A lot of problems exist because people are reluctant to stand up and speak out against what’s clearly wrong. You’re not one to complain, but calling attention to what needs changing isn’t complaining. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 15). You have a kind word for all you meet in the next three weeks, which starts a cycle of good karma that ripples on. August brings liberation. Your commitment to a job is so remarkable that you’ll be applauded and awarded in September. A strange turn of events leads to a colorful adventure in 2013. Libra and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 24, 21, 39 and 19.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). The symbols of success are not the success itself -- which consists of effort, experience, failure and recovery. Profound ideas will pop to mind about what gives your life meaning. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Having strong, intimate relationships with your loved ones is the most important thing to you now, though life doesn’t seem to be structured in support of that effort. You’ll have to go the extra mile to make it happen. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be in the mood to be close with your favorite people. Someone you love and trust will share your dreams, your ups and downs, and maybe even your lunch. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Yes, the whole world is crazy, but your part of it is exceptionally bananas now. Hopefully, this validation will empower you to laugh at the improbability of your scene. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You have a way of disengaging yourself from the role you are playing. It’s a defense mechanism that will serve you well now. You are an actor who executes the stage direction that will forward the plot. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Maybe the good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow, but that matters little to you. You do good for goodness’ sake -- and because it makes your life more meaningful. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). What a relationship could use right now is a ritual, something special you do with the other person that anchors your connection. Create a new activity you’d like to turn into a regular thing.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, June 15, the 167th day of 2012. There are 199 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On June 15, 1775, the Second Continental Congress voted unanimously to appoint George Washington head of the Continental Army. On this date: In 1215, England’s King John put his seal to Magna Carta (“the Great Charter”) at Runnymede. In 1219, forces led by King Valdemar II of Denmark defeated the Estonians in the Battle of Lyndanisse. 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 1902, the 20th Century Limited, an express passenger train between New York and Chicago, began service. (The Limited made its last run in Dec. 1967.) 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 1962, Students for a Democratic Society, at the conclusion of a five-day convention in Michigan, issued the Port Huron Statement calling for disarmament, enfranchisement of “publicly disinherited groups” and social change. In 1991, Mount Pinatubo in the northern Philippines exploded in one of the biggest volcanic eruptions of the 20th century, killing about 800 people. In 1992, Vice President Dan Quayle, relying on a faulty flash card, erroneously instructed Trenton, N.J., sixth-grade student William Figueroa to spell “potato” as “potatoe” during a spelling bee. One year ago: Pushing back against congressional criticism, the White House said that President Barack Obama had the authority to continue U.S. military action in Libya even without authorization from lawmakers on Capitol Hill. Today’s Birthdays: Former New York Governor Mario Cuomo is 80. Rock musician Lee Dorman is 70. Rock singer-actor Johnny Hallyday is 69. Singer Russell Hitchcock is 63. Rock singer Steve Walsh is 61. Comedian-actor Jim Belushi is 58. Country singer Terri Gibbs is 58. Actress Julie Hagerty is 57. Rock musician Brad Gillis (Night Ranger) is 55. Baseball Hall-of-Famer Wade Boggs is 54.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, June 15, 2012— Page 23
Dear Annie: A year ago, my sister, “Sheila,” had an affair. She is now living with the Other Man. Sheila and her husband have a 23-year-old son who has been devastated by this. My family believes the boyfriend is simply using Sheila for her money and to have someone around to help raise his teenage daughter. In addition, he seems very controlling. Needless to say, we all object to what my sister has done, but she is stubbornly standing by her decision. I will soon be traveling cross-country to visit. I have requested that Sheila not bring the boyfriend to any family gettogethers. Although I wouldn’t be so insensitive as to invite her soon-to-be ex, I’m not comfortable welcoming the boyfriend with open arms. My nephew will be at these gatherings, and his wounds are still fresh. I am trying to be considerate of his feelings. Sheila says I shouldn’t force her to choose, and that her boyfriend is her family now. I say that my nephew has been my family for 23 years. At what point do we have to include the boyfriend? Should I back down and let her bring the guy? -- Caught in the Middle Dear Caught: While we understand your reluctance to accept this man, we urge you to reconsider. Registering your disapproval is justified, but at some point, it can become counterproductive. Sheila is not going to come without him, so your choice is to see both of them or neither. Not seeing Sheila is one option. However, if Sheila marries this man, it will help your nephew enormously if he can learn to tolerate the guy’s presence. And it will be easier to do if he has the rest of his supportive family nearby, showing him how to be civil without necessarily being friendly. It will also help Sheila. If this man is as controlling as you fear, someone needs to keep an eye on the situation.
Dear Annie: My younger sister, “Linda,” age 50, is getting married for the fifth time. She is planning a wedding in the town where I grew up, about 400 miles away. My wife refuses to attend the wedding because she says it’s tacky and narcissistic to have such an affair for the fifth time, plus it’s a long drive. I agree that Linda is rather selfabsorbed, and I can only imagine what the guests may be thinking when my sister vows to love and to hold until death do you part. Again. I agree with my wife on principle, but Linda is my only sister. I could attend without my wife, but I don’t want to tell my sister why I’m by myself. How should I handle this? -- Big Brother Dear Big Brother: We think you should go, even if it means going without your wife, although it would be nice if she would attend for your sake. If Linda should ask about your wife’s absence, simply say she has other commitments. You don’t owe anyone more of an explanation than that. Dear Annie: “Puzzled in Indiana” said his brother refuses to speak to their father because Dad sold the family house when Mom died and built a new one with his new wife, instead of sharing the proceeds of the sale with the kids. My husband and I have been married for 40 years. We both worked and raised our kids. Whatever remains in our estate I expect to be for our children. I didn’t work extra shifts for the benefit of some future wife. I would not begrudge my husband the companionship of someone else in the event of my death. He can share his Social Security and pension, but not everything I worked for. -- Retiree in Florida Dear Florida: We understand your position, but “Puzzled” said Mom left the house to Dad, not to the kids. In which case, he was free to do with it as he wished.

Chris Brown, girlfriend injured in brawl
NEW YORK (AP) — Singer Chris Brown, his girlfriend and his bodyguard were injured when a dance floor showdown with members of hip-hop star Drake’s entourage turned into a bottle-hurling brawl earl Thursday at a nightclub, police said. Brown tweeted a photo of himself with a cut chin, then removed it, as well as other messages about the fight, including epithets and taunts. A representative later released a statement saying the singer and model Karrueche Tran were victims of a “brutal attack.” A representative for Drake said the star was on his way out of the club when the altercation began.
88 North Rt 132, New Hampton, NH
“He did not engage in any activity which resulted in injury to person or damage to property,” the statement said. Witnesses told police that two men approached Brown’s table and asked him whether he had a problem with Drake, and he replied he did not. Later, as Brown was leaving the club, five men met blocked his way on the dance floor and started taking off their shirts and yelling, police said. At some point, bottles started flying. Chief NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said it’s not clear whether the bottles were tossed by members of either entourage, or if bar patrons eager to egg on a dispute started throwing them.
