LRGH & other hospitals exploring options to fight & cope with new state tax on their operations

LACONIA 524-0100

LACONIA — Together with hospitals across the state, LRGHealthcare has begun wrestling with the impacts of the 2012-2013 state budget, which has stripped it of $9-million in revenue and saddled it with $4-million in taxes. The plight of the hospitals stems from the decision of the Legislature to change the rules of a Medicaid program — the Disproportionate Share Hospital, or DSH, fund — which has been a major source of state revenue and helped to balance state budgets for the past two decades. Dubbed “Mediscam,” the fiscal shell game shuffled a tax levied on hospitals, money from the state treasury and federal matching funds. Each year, on October 15, hospitals paid the state a tax — the “Medicaid Enhancement Tax” (MET) — based on their revenue and were paid an equal amount from the state treasury. These virtually simultaneous transactions were a wash with no cost to either party. The pea was under the third shell, where the federal government, through the Medicaid program, matched at least half but often more of the money the state returned to the hospitals as DSH payments ostensibly to defray the cost of treating needy patients. Although the Medicaid money was see hOsPItaL taX page 7

CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire’s Supreme Court, in a unanimous opinion Wednesday, said that lawmakers don’t have the constitutional power to order the attorney general to join a lawsuit over President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. The justices concluded that a Housepassed bill that ordered Attorney General Michael Delaney to join a lawsuit against the federal health care reform law is unconstitutional. The bill, “which removes entirely from the executive branch the decision as to whether to join the state as a party to litigation, would usurp the executive branch’s power to execute and enforce the law,” the court wrote. Therefore, the bill passed by the House “violates the separation of powers clause and is unconstitutional.” State senators had recommended, then tabled a similar bill that recommended that Delaney join the suit, not mandate it. The Senate asked the state Supreme Court last see AG page 10

Congresswoman Giffords released from Houston hospital HOUSTON (AP) — Rep. Gabrielle Giffords returned home to her astronaut husband on Wednesday, leaving behind a Houston hospital where she began to rebuild her life after a gunman shot her in the head five months ago. Giffords’ release marks a new phase in her recovery. She struggles to speak and walk, and will need daily, intensive therapy. Whether she will ever recover enough to resume her congressional duties is still unknown.

But doctors at TIRR Memorial Hermann, her husband Mark Kelly and experts who have been observing Giffords’ recovery emphasize that going home is a key milestone and could help stimulate her progress. “Anyone who knows Gabby knows that she loves being outside,” Kelly said in a statement released by the hospital. “Living and working in a rehab facility for five months straight has been especially challenging for her.”

Giffords will still go to the hospital each day where she will participate in speech, music, physical and occupational therapy with the same team that has treated her since she arrived in Houston in late January. Now, however, at the end of each day “she will be with her family,” Kelly said. The congresswoman will move to Kelly’s home in League City, a suburb near the Johnson Space Center, where she will have see GIFFORDS page 8

NEW YORK (AP) — A former porn actress who exchanged emails and messages over Twitter with Rep. Anthony Weiner said Wednesday that he asked her to lie about their interactions, while a growing chorus of lawmakers pressed for his resignation as the scandal enveloping the congressman enters its third week. Weiner has told friends he wanted to speak with his pregnant wife, Huma Abedin, before deciding whether to resign. She returned to Washington early Wednes-

day from a trip to Africa with her boss, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Nightclub dancer Ginger Lee is the latest in a series of women who said they received sexually charged messages from the seven-term congressman. The scandal began when Weiner posted a picture of his underwear-clad crotch on Twitter, then lied about it and said his account was hacked. Weiner acknowledged last week during a teary press conference that he had sent lewd photos and messages to about six

women over three years. Lee, from La Vergne, Tenn., said she and Weiner exchanged about 100 emails between March and June, after Lee posted a supportive statement about the congressman on her blog. He then contacted her on Twitter, Lee said. They mostly discussed politics, but he would often turn the conversation to sex, she said. “’I have wardrobe demands too. I need to highlight my package,’” Weiner wrote Lee, see WEINER page 12

CONCORD (AP) — Gov. John Lynch vetoed legislation on Wednesday that would require public employees to pay more toward their pensions and some to work longer — to spare New Hampshire taxpayers. Lynch said that even as the bill sat on his desk with a Wednesday deadline, legis-

intent to change this Legislation further, and my responsibility to review the legislation in its full and final form.” Lawmakers are mitigating board actions to prevent immediate rate hikes. State Sen. Jeb Bradley, chairman of the legislative negotiating committee on pensee VETO page 12

Jim Hightower

Vermont leads the way “We have a problem,” said House Speaker Shap Smith of Vermont. “We need to solve it.” This comment reflects a no-nonsense, hands-on, can-do attitude you rarely find in legislative bodies these days. Instead, when most socalled leaders are confronted with a problem, they tend to say, “We need to cover it up,” or, “Let’s turn this thing into a political football.” But Smith and a big majority of his Vermont colleagues refused to play games with one of the biggest issues confronting them and the people of every state: affordable health care for all. They knew that the current highcost, low-quality, you’re-on-your-own system is literally killing people, even as it is draining the budgets of governments and businesses. Costs of health care in Vermont have doubled in the last decade to roughly $5-billion a year and continue to go up by $1-million a day — even as 47,000 Vermonters have no coverage and many others only have D.G.S. policies: Don’t Get Sick. Angry about this, a hardy group of Vermonters have spent more than a decade organizing a strong grassroots coalition for universal health care, educating both the public and politicians on the issue and solutions. The sparkplug of this effort has been Dr. Deb Richter, who was so appalled by the callous bureaucracy and greed of insurance corporations that she moved her family and medical practice to Vermont in 1999 specifically to build such a coalition. She has traveled tirelessly ever since, giving hundreds of talks to every kind of group, from churches to chambers of commerce. Richter has a gift for speaking in pragmatic, non-ideological terms that reach a breadth of audiences. For example, viewing health care as an essential public service, rather than as a commodity to be sold and rationed by crass profiteers, she compares it to the fire department — “something people don’t want to use, but want in place, just in case.” As for people who say they don’t see why they should pay for Joe’s hospitalization, she points out that “Joe’s in the bed you’re going to be in tomorrow. That’s why we have to have health care as a public good.” This year, Vermont’s grassroots effort culminated in H.202 — a bill to establish a state health clearinghouse (called an “exchange”) with the authority to set up a single-payer style system to be called Green Mountain Care. Such exchanges, by the way, were authorized by a provision that Sen. Kent Conrad quietly included in

President Obama’s health insurance overhaul last year. While Republicans and some corporate Democrats were making a show of killing any options for public insurance policies in that bill, Conrad gave the states the ability to create their own public systems. The Vermont proposal would not establish the Green Mountain program immediately. Instead, H.202 provides a gradual process to involve the citizenry in implementing a publicly funded system over the next few years. Even when fully available, the program won’t be a pure single-payer system, for it still allows private insurers to sell policies. But what an important advance it offers! It breaks the stranglehold that profiteers have on people’s health. Green Mountain would assure coverage for everyone, cut the crushing costs and waste of the corporate system, decouple health care from one’s job, and take the financial burden of health insurance off the ledgers of businesses. It was a good bill, so naturally it was opposed by the usual special interests and know-nothings — one House Republican decried the very idea of universal coverage, calling it the “keystone in the arch of socialism.” But he was hooted down — and with stout public support, Green Mountain Care passed the House in March, 92-49, and the Senate in April, 21-9. On May 26, Gov. Pete Shumlin, who had made this issue central to his campaign last year, signed H.202, making Vermont first in the nation to go to the core of necessary reform by enacting a publicly funded health insurance law. Shumlin then gave the ceremony an appropriate punctuation point by handing his signing pen to Richter, calling her “the backbone” of the grassroots movement that produced this important advance for the common good. Cynics keep telling us that we can’t change the corporate order. But, as we see in Vermont, those who say it can’t be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.

LETTERS Why are outdoor enthusiasts worried about mercury in our fish? To the editor, New Hampshire sportsmen and outdoor businesses are mad about mercury. Recently over 50 New Hampshire businesses, outdoor sport clubs and guides signed on to a letter asking Congress to support the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) proposal to reduce mercury as part of the Clean Air Act revision. The Clean Air Act was signed into law by President Nixon some 40 years ago and has been very effective in reducing some pollution like acid rain. However much is left to do to clean up the air we all breath including reducing mercury. The single largest contributors to mercury in the air are this nation’s coal fired power plants — numbering over 500. Earlier this year the EPA proposed the first ever standards to lower mercury pollution and other air toxics from power plants. This spring over 50 businesses, sports clubs and guides signed on to a letter asking Congress to support the EPA’s initiative including local organizations like the Belknap County Sportsmen’s Association, Rick Forge Outdoors of Meredith and Curt Golder’s Angling Adventures of Wolfeboro. Airborne mercury eventually ends up in our freshwater and is taken up by the organisms living there. Next the food chain kicks in causing a bioaccumulation of the mercury in our fresh water fish. It is the predatory fish that tend to magnify this toxic brew over time. Bass, pickerel and our white and yellow perch near the top

of the food chain are the biggest accumulators of mercury. In fact in 2010 the Department of Environmental Services (DES) tested 133 fresh water fish in New Hampshire for mercury. Thirty-three, or 25-percent, of the fish had mercury levels high enough to constitute a health risk. Tests conducted on fish from lakes and ponds across the state indicated widespread mercury contamination. But why are all these outdoor enthusiasts concerned about mercury in our fish? Consumption of mercury can cause brain damage, learning disabilities in young children, and birth defects in the unborn and may damage our nervous system, kidneys or liver. Each year DES posts warnings at many of our lake access points warning of the danger of mercury, especially for pregnant women, women who may become pregnant and for children under the age of seven. The sign recommends that these women and children should eat no more than one serving of these fish per month. It also recommends eating only those fish that are less than a foot long. That is the younger fish that have had less time to accumulate mercury. All these fish are plentiful in our local waters and what better way to connect that youngster in your family than to spend an afternoon or evening fishing. Just remember to eat these fish in moderation. Eric Orff Wildlife Biologist Epsom

War is horrible but you must strive to win as quickly as possible To the editor, In reply to Ms. Rudmin Chong’s letter of June 10 as to why our military and its training schools don’t plan exit strategies for war: Simply put, for over two hundred years we have opted to train in the methods of winning wars instead of training for exit maneuvers. War is a fairly simple little endeavor . . . destroy the enemy and his will to fight. Having done that properly, exiting is merely an operation of moving man and materials back where they came from. Much to the consternation of the “troops”, our political leaders have tied our fighting men’s hands from

winning wars beginning with Korea, on through Vietnam and to the present day. War is a horrible thing but once you are engaged in, you must strive to win as quickly and efficiently as is possible. Our missions in Iraq and Afghanistan would have been concluded within six months had we let our military leaders run and win the war. Instead we care more about civilian casualties, saving infrastructure and pacifying the rest of the world than we do about our own fighting men who put themselves in harm’s way for our benefit.

The N.H. Medicaid Program is broken The fundamental promise of Medicaid is that it is a partnership between the state and federal government to take care of the neediest in our society. But the budget that is about to be adopted by the Legislature turns that promise on its head and is a betrayal of the commitment the State of New Hampshire has made to the people we serve in the Medicaid program. Many proponents of the budget will argue that it has been balanced without raising any new taxes, but nothing could be further from the truth. The budget that was adopted by both the House and Senate, although in slightly different forms, has the effect of imposing a massive new tax increase on hospitals through the imposition of something known as the Medicaid Enhancement Tax, or MET. While those same proponents of the budget will argue that the MET has been on the books since 1991, what they won’t tell you is that the MET was never intended to be a “real” tax and, until just last year, no hospital ever paid more in their MET than they received in a Medicaid disproportionate share hospital (DSH) payment. For the past 20 years, hospitals have paid the MET as a means of helping the state generate additional federal revenue that could be used to fund state government and received uncompensated care payments in recognition of their care for patients who have no insurance or who are covered by the Medicaid program – a program that only pays about 50 cents for every dollar of the cost of taking care of Medicaid patients. But hospitals are now facing the prospects of paying this tax and receiving very little, and most likely nothing, back in uncom-

pensated care payments to offset those losses. And to make matters worse, the state now intends to use the hospital tax revenue, not State General Fund revenue, to fund that portion of the budget that pays providers for serving Medicaid patients. In essence, hospitals will be paying themselves. And for almost every hospital in New Hampshire, the tax they pay will exceed the total amount of reimbursements they receive from the state for taking care of Medicaid patients. That’s a tax increase, plain and simple. Don’t let anyone tell you differently. And, as a result, hospitals all across the Granite State will be forced to deal with these increased taxes in one way or another: by trying to shift these additional costs to private insurers, the reduction or elimination of services in their communities and the loss of jobs. For businesses in New Hampshire, this budget will result in further costshifting to those with private insurance, meaning health insurance in New Hampshire — already one of the most expensive states in the nation for private health insurance — will only become less affordable. While hospitals support the need for a balanced budget that helps spur economic growth, creates jobs and ensures that services to our most vulnerable citizens are maintained, this budget breaks the promise to the Medicaid program and the people it serves. (Steve Ahnen is president of the New Hampshire Hospital Association, the primary advocate for the state’s 32 acute care community and specialty hospitals.)

LETTERS If those who are able are able donate, we can continue to help To the editor, As manager of the St. Vincent DePaul food pantry I want to acknowledge those involved in this year’s Post Office food drive. The willingness of postal workers to donate time and effort, and the generosity of the area residents is heartwarming and much appreciated. Our difficult economy over the past several years has put additional stress on the pantry. The number of people in need of assistance has increased and the donations have declined. This

combination makes the value of donations even more important. If anyone missed the drive and would like to contribute non-perishable food items, St. Vincent’s is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. If those who are able continue to donate, we can continue to help local families. Thank you again, and may God bless. V-Jo Carignan, Manager and VP St Vincent De Paul Food Pantry Laconia

LETTERS Green energy has had 38 years to create a cost effective system To the editor, An interesting letter from Carolyn W. Baldwin was in the Wednesday’s edition of letters to the editor. Most of her remarks were taken right from the Democratic talking points, such as Bush inheriting a surplus from the Clinton administration and such. Just to be clear though, that surplus was slipping away rapidly during the last two years of that administration so Bush inherited a troubled economy already. Add to that the attack on the World Trade Center which sent the market tumbling along with the buildings and the blame Bush argument looses it’s credibility. Be that as it may I should like to address a few of the ladies opinions. She states at one point that our military industrial complex armed the world. That’s not quite true. Actually the Soviet, eastern block countries, and China produced and distributed 20 or 30 times as many weapons as the U.S. did. At one point Russia had 60,000 tanks and armored vehicles, more submarines then the rest of the world combined and more then double our nuclear war heads. They armed every leftists revolutionary, terrorist gang in the world with SKS, AK 47’s and other abundant small arms. Yes we countered that to some degree but never in the numbers Ms. Baldwin suggests. As for the charge that we started wars it seems to me that when Iraq invaded Kuwait that started the ball rolling and when Saddam Hussein reneged on his surrender treaty he was just asking for it. (And I don’t give a damn where the WMDs were or are). I have no complaint about Bush kicking the Taliban out of Afghanistan and we finally killing that s.o.b. Ben Laden. I will ask Democrats how hard they want to push on that issue sense Obama has followed hard on Bush’s heals there? Unregulated Wall Street? Oh come on. Barney Frank and the Democratic-controlled Congress were up to

their necks in it all along. That screwup was the only bi-partisan thing Congress did in 10 or 15 years and now Obama has doubled down on a bad bet making things even worse. His bail outs targeted unions, corporate supporters, and special interest groups that traditionally backed the Democrats. It doesn’t appear to me that the president gives one damn about the people or the nation unless he benefits. Instead of creating jobs, which requires, I say again, requires, a business friendly environment he waisted two years pushing his health care plan down our throats. That’s two years he can never get back and the unemployment rate is still at 9.1-percent. Revise our tax codes? Hell yes! Best thing we could do is scrap the entire income tax system and go with national sales tax on retail sales. Some claim that would hurt the consumer, Really? Look taxing business and industry hurts the consumer because (news flash) business and industry don’t pay taxes, they just collect taxes from consumers. Any tax imposed on them is passed down to the consumer anyway so why not end the smoke and mirror political tricky? Finally, her plea on behalf of “green energy” is misguided. Green energy has had 38 years to create something that resembles a cost effective system and failed. It is a marginal, niche targeted, expensive system. Both our economic and political dilemmas are due to our abandoning our energy self reliance in favor of seeking the holy grail of green energy. That has cost us jobs, treasure, venerability to our national defense not to mention the hardships placed on poor and working families. It’s a fraud being perpetrated by dreamers and exploited by unscrupulous politicians. Prove me wrong, I would welcome a meaningful breakthrough on solar, wind or any other green system.

I was appalled by teachers’ behavior  toward Senator Forsythe  To the editor, On Tuesday night, a school board meeting between Gilmanton and Gilford was held. Topics discussed ranged from new programs to school vacations. The participants were informative, inquisitive, and polite. Midway through the session Senator Jim Forsythe came to help explain new laws that have passed or are close to passing which would directly impact school districts and their upcoming budgets. His participation was also calm, respectful, and open to all. Suddenly, two teachers from our town began to verbally attack the senator. What began as a civil exchange of ideas among two school districts and the audience quickly degenerated into a disgraceful display of personal attacks on the senator and his party

affiliation. The worst was that not much of the attack had anything to do with the issues at hand. This was the sort of input one would expect in a street fight; not at a school board meeting! Where has our civil tone gone? Should we be afraid to speak and ask questions at an open forum for fear of being attacked by a dissenter? Have we lost our ability to share thoughts and ideas without rhetoric or rancor becoming the issue? I, for one, was appalled at the behavior of those teachers, who chose that venue to air their contempt for someone who doesn’t fit their idea of what is right for them. To those people I say, “ANGER MANAGERMENT” Please! Elena Ball Gilmanton Iron Works


Boys & Girls Club backs away from purchase of Citizen building By Gail OBer

LACONIA — The Boys & Girls Club of the Lakes Region will not seek a federal grant to help it buy the building that houses the currently houses The Citizen of Laconia newspaper, said County Administrator Debra Shackett yesterday. Shackett’s statement came at a Belknap County Commission meeting as a point of order about the agenda because the public hearing for a U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development block grant application was to have been held at 6 p.m. Grants of this kind need to be sponsored by a governmental body with jurisdiction over the area where the investment would be made. Shackett offered no further explanation for why the hearing had been canceled. According to Boys & Girls Club Board Vice President Al Posnack, the club “hasn’t come to term on their agreement to purchase” the building on Fair Street. The Boys & Girls Club announced last fall that it had entered into a purchase and sales agreement for $1.1-

with a limited liability corporation controlled by Fosters Daily Democrat of Dover. But that sale was never closed. The newspaper was sold last June to a Pennsylvania-based newspaper company but the building, through its holding company, remains in possession of the Robert Foster family of Dover — the former publishers of The Citizen. The Boys & Girls Club has long hoped for its own home — having moved from the campus of the former Sacred Heart Catholic Church to the basement of the Our Lady of the Lakes Catholic Church in Lakeport Earlier this year, the St. Andre Bessette Parish closed the Lady of the Lakes Church for worship and consolidated all Catholic Church services in downtown Laconia. While the Lakeport campus is for sale, the church still owns the property and leases a portion of it to the Boys & Girls Club. Posnack said that without a solid plan for the Boys & Girls Club there is no reason to pursue a federal grant at this time. “We need a specific plan and we don’t have that,” he said.

HOSPITALS from page one intended for those hospitals with the most needy patients — hence “disproportionate share” — a loophole enable the state to divert it to the general fund. Some 30 states worked the game, but none more aggressively than New Hampshire, which since 1991 has collected at least $2-billion in “Mediscam” money. When “Mediscam” began the hospitals were concerned, fearful that if the federal matching payments were curtailed, they could be lumbered with the tax. But, the state assured them that should that occur, the tax on hospitals would be repealed. Over the years, the federal government closed the loopholes in the DSH program. Last year, to comply with federal regulations, the state began reimbursing hospitals for the uncompensated care they provide to Medicaid and indigent patients while still reaping nearly $100-million for its general fund.

The worst fears of the hospitals have been realized by the state budget for the two year period that begins July 1. The Legislature has withheld $120-million in DSH payments to 13 hospitals, including LRGH, which with a federal match amounts to almost $250-million in foregone revenue. At the same time, the state will keep the proceeds from the MET. According to the New Hampshire Center for Public Policy Studies, the change will leave nine of the 13 hospitals, including LRGH which last year posted a $2.3-million operating loss, operating in the red. Henry Lipman, senior vice-president and chief financial officer of LRGH, said yesterday that LRGH expects to forgo $9-million in revenue, represented by its MET payments. At the same time, LRGH expects to receive about $5-million in Medicaid reimbursement payments. The net effect, Lipman explained, will be that see next page

from preceding page LRGH will pay the state between $3-million and $4-million in tax while continuing to subsidize half the cost of treating Medicaid patients. Speaking on New Hampshire Public Radio, Tom Wilhelmsen, chief executive officer of Southern New Hampshire Health System in Nashua, called the MET a 5.5-percent sales tax on health care. Lipman said that LRGH has joined with the New Hampshire Hospital Association in asking Governor John Lynch to veto the budget adopted by the Legislature as well as urging lawmakers to uphold his veto and remove the changes to the Medicaid program from the budget. At the same time, hospitals have begun considering measures to mitigate the impact of the budget. As in the past, hospitals anticipate seeking to transfer a portion of their additional costs to the fees charged to privately insured patients, which will aggravate cost shifting, one of the major factors in the rising cost of health insurance. But that could be easier said than done because private insurance reimbursement rates have to negotiated with powerful companies like Anthem. Lipman said that officials at some hospitals have broached the prospect of limiting access or deferring elective procedures for Medicaid patients, without however, offering specific proposals.

Some hospitals have already challenged the legitimacy of the MET and others are contemplating bringing suit against the state. Several hospitals have approached the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration, arguing that because different hospitals calculate their net revenue, which represents the base of the tax, in different ways, it violates the state Constitution, which requires that state taxes be equal in valuation and unform in rate throughout the state. Likewise, the hospitals have suggested the tax is discrimmatory because it is levied against only some and not all health care providers. Meanwhile, cases pending before the United States Supreme Court indicate that the state, under the terms of its partnership with the federal government, may be obliged to provide some minimal amount of funding for the Medicaid program. By withholding payments for uncompensated care in the wake of significantly reducing reimbursement rates, the state could be failing to meet its legal obligations. Lipman said that along with seeking to achieve greater operating efficiencies, freezing salaries and wages and adjusting employee benefits, LRGH is weighing all the options under discussion among and within the hospitals, including the pursuit of litigation. He anticipated that if the proposed state budget is adopted a series of recommendations will be presented to the Board of Trustees in the coming weeks.

HYUNDAI from page one brought on in the late 1970s and Scion came in 2002. Irwin said that Hyundai is “one of the fastest growing, if not the fastest, brands in the United States.” That growth, in his view, is due to recent changes in Hyundai vehicles’ aesthetics and build quality. “They have improved so dramatically,” he said. “They’re as good as anything else in the industry.” South Korea-based Hyundai Motor Company was the world’s fifth largest automobile manufacturer as of 2009 sales. Although Hyundai’s products often directly com-

pete with offerings from Ford, Irwin said acquiring the brand will “bring more automotive traffic to this area – which I certainly view as a benefit.” Another benefit he saw was, “The Hyundai brand allows us to serve more customers, for sales as well as service.” By purchasing the dealership, Irwin will also be acquiring the opportunity to earn the service business from current Hyundai owners. He hopes that these new service relationships will mature into future sales. “That’s what we’re trying to attract, ultimately, back to our stores.”

GIFFORDS from page 2 24-hour help from a home care assistant. The 41-year-old was shot in the left side of the brain, the part that controls speech and communication, on Jan. 8 while meeting with constituents in Tucson. Six people were killed and 13 wounded in the attack, including the lawmaker and members of her staff. Her release from the hospital was met with excitement. “When I went home from the hospital after surgery, I was so nervous, but boy it’s wonderful to be home in your own surroundings, to be able to have things on your own schedule,” said Ron Barber, who also survived the shooting. “I’m sure it’ll be uplifting and healing for her, too,” he said. Jordan Grafman, director of the Traumatic Brain Injury Research Laboratory at the Kessler Foundation Research Center in West Orange, N.J., said being around family often motivates patients. He warned, however, that the congresswoman is far from healed and will has many months, years and even a lifetime of recovery ahead of her. “Often, you can do many things for yourself but not everything, that’s not unusual after a severe traumatic

brain injury,” Grafman said, explaining why she would need professional help at home. “It’s not unusual to be released before complete independence and you may never achieve complete independence” Giffords’ Chief of Staff Pia Carusone recently gave the first clear indication of how slowly Giffords is recovering. After months of optimistic, rosy reports from Giffords’ doctors, staff and family, Carusone said that while the congresswoman can speak, she struggles to express complex thoughts and sentences. “Her words are back more and more now, but she’s still using facial expressions as a way to express. Pointing. Gesturing,” Carusone told the Arizona Republic. “Add it all together, and she’s able to express the basics of what she wants or needs,” Carusone said. “But when it comes to a bigger and more complex thought that requires words, that’s where she’s had the trouble.” Better news came on Sunday, when the first pictures of Giffords since the shooting were posted on her Facebook page. Although wearing glasses and sporting shorter, darker hair, there were few indications she had been injured, let alone shot in the forehead.

Gilmanton community effort provides new home for GCC Food Pantry & Thrift Shop By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

GILMANTON — On May 15, organizers of the GCC Food Pantry and Thrift Shop held a ribboncutting of the new facility, located in the heart of the Gilmanton Iron Works village. Jane Sisti, chairperson of the five-member committee operating the thrift shop and food pantry, said it took a community-wide effort to make the event possible and the operation will benefit just as many. The thrift shop and food pantry are located at 1817 Route 140, in a building that was first used as the firehouse for the Gilmanton Hills Fire Department, which was active through the 1950s. The building was used for a while as a blueberry storage facility, then was a wood shop. Two years ago, the property came on the market and the neighboring Gilmanton Community Church, of which the GCC Food Pantry and Thrift Shop is an outgrowth, bought the property. The church initially started its food pantry to help a particular family which was known to be struggling. Over the years, need for the pantry grew and Sisti said it soon became clear to the committee that the pantry’s location in the church’s basement was limiting its ability to grow to meet the need. “We just knew there was more to be done,” she said.

With more space in the dedicated facility, the committee could add a thrift shop to its operations. Income from the sales of donated clothing items will be used to pay for its utilities, incrementally pay the church back its $45,000 investment into the project and support the food pantry’s operation. However, acquiring the property was only the first step toward the goal, realized on May 15, of opening the shop and pantry. Much work was required first, including extensive sitework, landscaping and tree work. A new roof was put on, a walkway from the church parking lot was built leading to a new entryway, and the interior was renovated. “It’s been a real community undertaking,” said Sisti, producing a list of people and businesses two pages long who contributed either materials, services or funding. “Everything was done with volunteers, donated materials and donated money,” she said. Not only did contributors include community members outside of the church, the list includes many who don’t live in Gilmanton. “We now have the facility to serve more people,” she said. The food pantry currently serves between 30 and 35 local families each month. In addition to its regular support, it runs the adopt-a-child prosee next page

from preceding page program for the holiday season and assembles holiday food baskets. At the most recent Christmas season, the pantry gave out 50 baskets. Sisti said, “I think 50 food baskets is the most we’ve ever done.” As busy as the food pantry is, there’s just as much interest in the thrift shop. Sisti said local residents enjoy the opportunity to drop off usable but unwanted clothing there and dedi-

cated thrift shop connoisseurs will travel from all over the Lakes Region. The thrift shop and food pantry are open on Mondays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Wednesdays from 3 to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. From 8 to 10 a.m. on Saturday,the thrift shop only is open. The operation is run entirely by volunteers. To be one of them, call Sisti at 364-7437. “We could always use more volunteers,” she said.

AG from page one month if lawmakers have the constitutional power to order the attorney general to join other states suing to block the health care act. Delaney had argued that the independence of his office is historical fact and good government. He also submitted a memorandum supporting his position by former attorneys general. “I’m pleased the legal issue has been resolved,” he said Wednesday. In his response, House Majority Leader D.J. Bettencourt said the bill is not about usurping the powers of the executive branch. Rather, “it is about protecting the people of New Hampshire against Obamacare, unfunded mandates and the tremendous costs associated with a program that our taxpayers will have to pay for out of their own pockets,” he said. He called the court’s opinion “an egregious example of judicial activism and an abandonment of originalism in judicial interpretation,” in its reading of the state Constitution. Bettencourt pointed to a constitutional amendment in 1964 that he said was not intended to give the governor constitutional authority over the state’s civil officers, such as attorney general. He said rather than define the executive power based on that amendment, the court has rewritten the Constitution “to give the governor powers which the governor was never intended to have.” At least 26 states, a coalition of small businesses and private individuals have challenged the national law, arguing it exceeds the federal govern-

ment’s powers. The states argue that the correct way to ensure that people pay for medical services is by imposing restrictions or penalties on those who attempt to use health care services without insurance. Three judges on the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals panel in Atlanta heard a challenge to the law last week after a federal judge in Florida struck it down. Federal appeals courts in Cincinnati and Richmond also have heard arguments challenging the law. Lawyers on both sides agree the case is headed for the U.S. Supreme Court. In New Hampshire, the Senate asked the state Supreme Court whether the requirement that attorney general move to have the state join the lawsuit as a plaintiff violates the constitution; whether requiring the attorney general to join the suit would fall within the broad grant of authority to the Legislature as set forth in the state Constitution; and whether the bill as adopted by the House violates any other provision of the state constitution. The justices answered yes to the first question and no to the second. It declined to answer the third question. “The executive branch, not the legislative branch, is empowered to protect the interests of the people by taking care that the laws are faithfully executed,” the court wrote. The justices added, “It is the executive, not the legislative branch, in which the constitution vests the ‘supreme executive’ authority to determine whether it is in the public interest to litigate a particular matter.”

State’s new on-the-job training program pays dividends for Belmont man & Lakeport employer BY ROGER AMSDEN FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — A unique program which allows jobless workers to receive on-the-job training while still collecting unemployment benefits has worked out well for both Arthur Alley of Belmont and his new employer. “It’s a great program. It gives you an opportunity to see if it’s the right job for you and to show an employer what you’re capable of doing,’’ says Alley, who for the last two months has been working at Engraving Awards and Gifts after completing the six-week program. Alley was awarded a certificate of completion for the program yesterday by Tara Reardon, commissioner of the NH Department of Employment Security, who toured the company’s headquarters in Lakeport. She said that the Return to Work program, launched by Governor John Lynch last year, is a voluntary program in which companies provide a structured, supervised training opportunity to unemployed workers at no cost to employers. During the six-week training program unemployed claimants continue to collect unemployment compensation and can work up to 24 hours a week while continuing their job search. “It’s an opportunity for a trainee to get their foot in the door and learn new skills and an opportunity for an employer to train without the accompanying costs,’’ says Reardon. She said that 70-percent of the 308 enrolled in the program statewide have already landed jobs, helping saving thousands of dollars in unemployment costs. And the program, which is run from the department’s administrative budget, has been authorized by the legislature to be extended to all unemployed workers in the state in the next budget. “We do it all in-house, so there’s no appropriation needed,’’ says Reardon. Alley, 27, had worked as a warehouse manager for Burlwood Antiques in Meredith before he became unemployed and collected benefits for about four months before landing his new job, which sees him handling screen printing work, product assembly and shipping and receiving. “I can’t say enough good about the people I worked with who trained me,’’ said Alley, who is now a productive part of a company which enjoys a world-wide market for

its varied engraved promotional and gift products. Bob Powers, owner of Engraving, Awards and Gifts, says that he’s a strong supporter of the idea of getting as many people as possible back to work to combat the nation’s economic doldrums and is very happy with the program. “It gives us the chance to see if a worker is a good fit for our organization and for the worker to see if they’re comfortable in what they’re doing. We train them just like we do any other employee and we’re really happy to be able to hire Arthur. He’s a good, hard worker who deserves a job, just like the other three people we’ve hired since December who weren’t part of the program.’’ Powers, who at one time worked for Gillette and the Mount Washington Cruise Line, bought what was a plaque and trophy company from Gert Gove in the 1990s, and, with leadership from his son, Dana, has transformed it into a company with 25 employees which does business all over the world. “We’re a graphic design company which personalizes products using the latest in laser engraving technology,’’ says Powers, noting that his company ships product to Japan and China, Europe and the Middle East, as well as to all parts of the United States.

WEINER from page 2 in an email read aloud at the news conference by Lee’s attorney, Gloria Allred. The 46-year-old congressman, who has taken a two-week leave from the House, was in treatment for an undisclosed disorder at an undisclosed location. A spokeswoman declined to comment. House Democratic leaders planned to meet Thursday to consider their next step in handling the scandal, a House aide said. They could decide to strip Weiner of his committee assignments and could take other actions to punish him. The aide requested anonymity because officials had not authorized a public discussion of their plans. In an interview two weeks ago, Weiner said he had exchanged messages with Lee but didn’t elaborate. Lee said she did not send sexually suggestive messages to Weiner. “Anytime that he would take our communications in a sexual direction, I did not reciprocate,” she said. After the first photo surfaced, Lee asked Weiner what to do and “he asked me to lie” about their contact, she said. Lee said she put out a three-sentence statement on the matter at his request. That statement said: “I haven’t met Rep. Weiner. I follow him on Twitter because I support him and what he stands for. I have been hounded by his political opponents but that hasn’t changed my view of him and what he fights for.” At the news conference, Lee said that after issuing the statement, “I didn’t want to say anything further. I refused to lie so I went silent and went into hiding.”

But she and Weiner kept communicating about what to do, she said. Neither Lee nor Allred addressed what Weiner asked Lee to then say or do. On June 2, Weiner called her and told her to avoid the media, Lee said. She said she was coming forward now to tell the truth and to deny reports that she was in an online sexual relationship with Weiner. “Once it got to a point that he lied on national television, then I knew that anything I said after that would have to be either a lie or an admission,” she said. Lee said she contacted an attorney after receiving threats from “an individual who threatened to release a statement from me which I did not authorize.” She did not identify that person or tell what the statement said. Allred is a Los Angeles attorney who has represented figures in high-profile sex scandals, including a woman who said she was a girlfriend of Tiger Woods and a former child actress who said she had an affair with former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. She said Lee works as a “featured dancer” at a club but no longer appears in adult films. She is also studying to be a real estate agent, Allred said. Lee had to miss work when her name surfaced in news reports but will return to work at an unidentified club today, the lawyer added. In Washington, the House Democratic leader, Nancy Pelosi, reiterated her call for Weiner to quit, saying after the meeting that she wanted to make sure nobody missed her earlier resignation call while members were on a weeklong recess.

VETO from page 2 sion reform, had no comment on Lynch’s veto. The current bill had shifted more costs onto workers to spare state and local property taxpayers from paying an increasing share of rising pension costs. Labor groups had lobbied hard for Lynch to veto it. Lawmakers believe that by raising employees’ contribution rates, the state can stop a longstanding practice of subsidizing local public employee pension costs without causing municipal contribution rates to spike. The state had been paying 35 percent of local pension costs, a longstanding practice meant to encourage municipalities to participate in the system. The state reduced its share to 25 percent in the current budget. The budget for the upcoming two years passed by the Senate eliminates the state’s share. At the 35 percent rate, the state’s share would be about

$87 million in each of the next two years. The current bill notes that legislation was enacted in 2007 to deal with the system’s unfunded liability, $2.7 billion at the time, but changes since make the reforms in the bill necessary. The system’s current unfunded pension liability is $3.7 billion plus an estimated unfunded medical insurance liability of nearly $1 billion. Vested employees are defined as those with 10 years in the system, contrary to arguments by some employee groups that workers with less than 10 years should have the same protections. Concern over losing benefits has led to hundreds of employees filing for retirement this year. Lawmakers attempted to allay their fears by giving employees until Jan. 1 to become vested and escape many of the changes that would affect new hires and workers with less time on the job.

Bruins win Stanley Cup VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — While the Boston Bruins beelined across the ice to mob him at the buzzer, Tim Thomas tapped both goalposts, sank to his knees and rubbed the ice in front of his empty goal. Thomas drew a virtual line in his crease throughout these crazy, contentious Stanley Cup finals, and Boston’s brilliant goalie just wouldn’t allow the Vancouver Canucks to cross it whenever it really mattered. After 39 years without a championship, the Bruins ripped the Cup — and several thousand hearts — out of a Canadian city that had waited four decades itself for one sip. Thomas was just too good, and the Bruins are the NHL’s best. The Cup is headed back to the Hub of Hockey. Thomas made 37 saves in the second shutout of his landmark finals performance, Patrice Bergeron and rookie Brad Marchand scored two goals apiece, and the Bruins beat the Canucks 4-0 Wednesday night to win their first championship since 1972. “I think I went even further than I thought,” Thomas said. “I never envisioned three Game 7s in one playoff season and still being able to come out on top.” The Bruins leaped over the boards and headed straight for Thomas at the final buzzer, mobbing the goalie who carried them through long stretches of this postseason. The Bruins are the first team in NHL history to win a Game 7 three times in the same postseason, with Thomas posting shutouts in the decisive game of the Eastern Conference finals and the Stanley Cup finals. Captain Zdeno Chara nearly slipped when he skated away from Commissioner Gary Bettman with the Stanley Cup. And the oversized trophy eventually got a lift from Nathan Horton, the injured Boston forward whose Game 3 concussion on a late hit irrevocably swung the series’ momentum to Boston. Before Game 7, Horton worked to give the Bruins a home-ice advantage, pouring a bottle of Boston water onto the ice in front of the Bruins’ bench 90 minutes before warmups. “I was just trying to get some Garden ice here and make it our ice,” Horton said. But it was mostly Thomas, who limited the Canucks to eight goals in seven spectacular games in the finals, blanking Vancouver in two of the last four. Boston dropped the first two games in Vancou-

ver but became just the third team since 1966 to overcome that deficit. “We got the first goal, and we knew that would be important coming here,” said 43-year-old Mark Recchi, who plans to retire after winning the Stanley Cup with his third franchise. “If they got any chances, Timmy was there, and it was just scary how good he was.” Bergeron quieted the crowd with the first goal, scoring the eventual game-winner in the first period. He added a short-handed score in the second to keep the Cup away from the Canucks, who have never won it in nearly 41 years of existence. Star goalie Roberto Luongo again failed to match Thomas’ brilliance, giving up 18 goals in the last five games of the finals.

Beckett limits Rays to 1 hit

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Josh Beckett was a dribbler from being perfect. The Boston right-hander pitched the first onehitter of his career Wednesday night, limiting the Tampa Bay Rays to Reid Brignac’s third-inning infield single in a 3-0 Red Sox victory. “I felt good. They were hitting balls at guys, and that’s nice,” Beckett said after his fifth career shutout and first complete game since 2009. “When you miss your spot and they still hit it at somebody, it’s just one of those nights.” Kevin Youkilis hit a three-run homer and Beckett retired the last 19 batters he faced in outdueling rookie Jeremy Hellickson, who matched the Boston starter out for out into the seventh inning. Beckett struck out six and walked none while throwing 97 pitches to post his first shutout since blanking Kansas City 6-0 at Fenway Park on July 12, 2009. It was his 10th complete game, first since a 9-1, five-inning victory over the Rays at home on Sept. 12, 2009. “That’s about as good as you can pitch,” Boston manager Terry Francona said, noting Brignac’s hit came on a low changeup that probably would have bounced if he had swung and missed. “If it wasn’t for that little 3-iron out of the rough — that ball was about off the dirt,” Francona added. “He was tremendous. It was fun to watch.”

FRANKLIN — Barbara W. Stoddard, 92, died on June 15, 2011 at Mountain Ridge Genesis Health Care Center, Franklin, where she had lived for the past three years. She lived most of her life in the Laconia area. She and her husband moved their two sons to Northfield for several years. Barbara was born in Laconia on July 16, 1919. She was the youngest of Nellie (Page) and Robert A. Whitehouse’s five children. All her siblings, aunts and uncles, parents and grandparents died earlier. So did her grandson, James. When she was still a child, both her parents died, so for years Barbara lived with different relatives in or near Laconia. When living with one of them in Northfield, she met Sidney Stoddard. They were married by a Baptist Pastor in Fitchburg, Mass., on June 8, 1944. A picture she chose for a public hallway at Mountain Ridge shows Barbara in her white cap and gown, marking her graduation from high school. For most of her adult life, Barbara worked on payroll – first for Scott and Williams, then for Blue Cross/Blue Shield, and finally for Pike Industries. Barbara is survived by her two sons and daughters-in-law, Ronald and Carolyn and Douglas and Sue, all of

Franklin. She also is survived by four grandchildren: Chris and Frank Acevedo of Lakeland, Fla., Jason Stoddard of Derry; Michelle, Nate and Trinity Taylor of Hill and Michael Stoddard of Milwaukee, Wisc. Besides loving these relatives and many other people, she also gravitated to animals. She often had pet dogs and/or birds. Even when Alzheimer’s robbed her of most conversational skills, she regularly asked visitors about their own pets. She enjoyed seeing animals at places such as Friendly Farm in Dublin. A Calling Hour will be held on Saturday, June 18, 2011 from 10:00-11:00 AM in the Carriage House of the Wilkinson-Beane-Simoneau-Paquette Funeral Home, 164 Pleasant Street, Laconia, N.H followed by a Funeral Service at 11:00AM also at the Funeral Home.

OBITUARY

Carole (Howe) St. Jacques, 92 GILFORD — Carole St. Jacques (Howe), 73 of Gilford, New Hampshire died at her home on June 14, 2011 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. She was cared for and comforted in the final stages of her life by family, friends and the wonderful caregivers and nurses of Hospice. Raised in Meredith, Carole was the 7th of 8 children born to Oliver and Mildred (Sawyer) Howe. She graduated from InterLakes High School where she played girl’s basketball. In 1959, Carole married her beloved husband, Kenneth, and enjoyed 50 years together before his death in 2010. They lived most of their lives in the Lakes Region. After a brief retirement in Florida where she played golf and enjoyed the sunshine, she and Ken moved back to New Hampshire to be near family and friends. Family was the most important aspect of Carole’s life. She was always proud and supportive of her children, Torrie Whitcher and Ernie St. Jacques, both of Gilford. Carole had a special place in her heart for her cherished granddaughter, Bristol Whitcher, who brought such joy to her life. Carole had a lifelong passion for gardening. She not only grew her own vegetables and berries, but made pickles and jams that she generously shared with family and friends. She also enjoyed knitting

and shared her talent by donating hundreds of caps to the Dartmouth Hitchcock Hospital and other charities. Additionally, Carole enjoyed cross stitch and quilting and made many heirloom pieces for those closest to her. The simple things in life made Carole the most happy. Bingo with friends, Sunday drives around the Lake and quiet family dinners were some of her favorites. She also enjoyed her regular trips to Las Vegas with her husband, her children or her girlfriends. The slot machines and buffet would always put a smile on her face. Carole’s kind heart and generous spirit will be missed by all who knew and loved her. Memorial calling hours will be held from 5:007:00PM on Tuesday, June 21, 2011 in the Carriage House of the Wilkinson-Beane-Simoneau-Paquette Funeral Home, 164 Pleasant Street, Laconia, N.H. There will be no Funeral Service. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Community Health and Hospice, Inc., 780 North Main Street, Laconia, N. H. 03246.

Douglas will demonstrate that in reality, the decade of the ‘50s — sandwiched between the final years of the Great Depression and World War II, the struggle for civil and equal rights, and the 1960s Cultural Revolution and Vietnam War — set the stage for momentous changes during the second half of the 20th century.

Registration open for USTA Junior Tennis Teams to begin week of June 27 GILFORD — Registration is now open for two Junior Tennis Teams formed by Granite State Kids, to begin play the week of June 27. Granite State Kids, a not for profit Community Tennis Association under the United States Tennis Association (USTA), announced the formation of a “14 and Under” team and a new “18 and Under” team. Both teams will be targeting intermediate players. For a player to be considered intermediate they must be able to get five out of 10 serves in, know how to keep score, and hit three out of four balls back into play when the balls are directed to them. Coaching the teams will be Lindsay Aichinger, a 2010 graduate and former tennis team captain from Bishop Brady High School. Aichinger’s individual record in her senior year was 29 wins and one loss. She went undefeated in doubles. Assisting Aichinger will be her mother Barbara, a longtime USTA Adult league player who is on the USTA New Hampshire board. “Granite State Kids has a great program in the southern part of New Hampshire with teams from the Seacoast, Sunapee, and Manchester

areas,” stated Barbara Aichinger. “We would like to see more teams from the Lakes Region join in the fun.” Practices will be held once a week in the Gilford area and matches will be on Thursdays in either Concord or Bedford. Matches will often be double headers so kids get ample opportunity to play. The format of the team is five positions: Boys and Girls Singles, Boys and Girls Doubles, and Mixed Doubles. “Our practices will be fast paced and fun,” said coach Lindsay Aichinger. “I have played this format for years and it is fun to be on a co-ed team.” The season will run from the weeks of June 27 — August 5. Winning teams can advance to the State Championships, New England Championships, and even the National Championships. Cost is $150 per player and includes USTA Membership, team shirt, weekly coached practices, weekly match play, and balls. The cost is $131 if the player is already a USTA member. Registration forms can be found at www.GraniteStateKids.com. Interested players and their parents should contact the coaches at TennisNH@comcast.net or call 548-5037.

Pooch Café LOLA

By Holiday Mathis ask for forgiveness later. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You want to go where the sun is hot and the sunbathers are cool. However, there is work to be done before such leisure can easily happen. Get busy, and you’ll soon be able to have your fun. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You are open and ready for new experiences, and life comes rushing in to greet you. You will look back on this time period and know that you did something utterly fantastic. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Fun is contagious. Unfortunately, it is equally subjective. What one person thinks is hilarious may fall flat with the next person. So consider your audience before you forward that e-mail! AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You do not always feel generous with your resources, but if you have something to give, it doesn’t feel good to hold it back with a tight fist. Your innate generosity always prevails in the end. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are a master of understatement. Do not let this tendency lead you into total silence, though. People need to hear from you, or they will forget you’re out there. Speak up. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 16). Dare to speak up about what you want and what you think should happen. You have influence over others, and the better you get at expressing yourself the stronger this power becomes. Your insistence on quality will improve your lifestyle. Finances look bright in July. Travel happens in September and December. Leo and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 13, 25, 12, 39 and 18.

by Richard Thompson

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Be vigilant in protecting your own freedom and autonomy. Don’t let the noise of friends and old relationships taint the development of something new. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You may be the only one who understands you today, but don’t take that as a negative omen. It really means that you are either far ahead of your time, or thinking on a deeper level than others can readily get to now. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There is someone who dotes on you, and it’s nice to know that you come first in this person’s mind. You don’t require this much emotional security and reassurance on a regular basis, but right now it feels quite nice. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Mercury’s current transit has you feeling loose and lively, which will be more appropriate for some relationships than it is for others. Use discretion and restraint. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You have a great deal of self-control when a relationship is proceeding nicely. But bumps in the relationship road may cause you to seek external security. Remind yourself that real security comes from within. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You make sense of illogical and disparate ideas. The random thoughts a friend expresses at times will prove to have some semblance of order, meaning and importance to you, after all. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You take orders well and follow the rules as much as possible. However, circumstances do arise from time to time that require immediate action. Don’t wait for permission. Go for it -- and if necessary

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Thursday, June 16, the 167th day of 2011. There are 198 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On June 16, 1911, the Computing-Tabulating-Recording Co. was incorporated in New York State; it later became known as International Business Machines, or IBM. On this date: In 1567, Mary, Queen of Scots, was imprisoned in Lochleven Castle in Scotland. (She escaped almost a year later but ended up imprisoned again.) In 1858, accepting the Illinois Republican Party’s nomination for the U.S. Senate, Abraham Lincoln said the slavery issue had to be resolved, declaring, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” In 1903, Ford Motor Co. was incorporated. In 1932, President Herbert Hoover and Vice President Charles Curtis were renominated at the Republican national convention in Chicago. In 1933, the National Industrial Recovery Act became law. (It was later struck down by the Supreme Court.) In 1959, actor George Reeves, TV’s “Superman,” was found dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound in the bedroom of his Beverly Hills, Calif., home; he was 45. In 1963, the world’s first female space traveler, Valentina Tereshkova, was launched into orbit by the Soviet Union aboard Vostok 6. In 1970, Kenneth A. Gibson of Newark, N.J., became the first black politician elected mayor of a major Northeast city. Chicago Bears running back Brian Piccolo, 26, died at a New York hospital after battling cancer.

Page 20 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, June 16, 2011

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Dear Annie: I have known “Tony” for 17 years, and we’ve dated for the past seven. He has one ex-girlfriend who has remained in his life. When “Mara” became pregnant (by another man), she asked Tony to be the godfather. At first he told her no, because he thought it would make me uncomfortable (you think?), but after she pleaded with him that there was no one else, he agreed to do it. He told me he was only doing a favor for her and it didn’t mean he would be involved in the child’s life. I accepted the situation as best I could. Since then, we have all been together a couple of times, and Mara is so self-absorbed, it makes me uncomfortable. She never includes me in the conversation. A year ago, Mara called about getting together so Tony could see his godchild. I was going to be out of town that weekend, so Tony turned her down. But that same weekend, she somehow arranged some kind of drama and called Tony to come over and help her out. She knows how to manipulate and play the helpless female. Fortunately, nothing happened because Tony didn’t fall for it. The problem is, when Tony told me about that weekend, it made me wonder about Mara’s true motive. However, whenever I mention to Tony that she might be too interested, he gets angry and defends her every time. He insists that Mara has no desire to be with him again, and I believe that’s true, but it seems she still wants to exert control over him. Annie, please tell me if I am overreacting. I think exes should stay in our memories, not be part of our future. -- Insecure in Seaside Dear Seaside: In many instances, being a godfather is a serious religious responsibility. If Tony isn’t interested in a relationship with his godchild, he should bow out and ask Mara to find someone else. But if he continues in this role, it will necessitate ongoing, regular contact with Mara. It doesn’t

matter whether she is trying to exert control. It only matters that you trust Tony. Dear Annie: For the past 10 years, my friend “Ted” has sent out an e-mail blast asking people to support a fundraising “walk” for a good cause. My husband and I have always given a donation, as we believe in the cause and also want to support a good friend. However, Ted has never once acknowledged our giving on his behalf. Over the years, our charitable giving has become more focused, and we no longer will be donating to Ted’s fundraiser. Should I have sent him a letter directly, telling him the primary reason was because he never said “thank you”? It’s true, but it makes me feel petty. -- Even Fundraisers Should Say Thank You Dear Even: The charity should have acknowledged your donation. As a friend, Ted also should have thanked you, especially since you came through for him year after year. You are not obligated to volunteer the information about why you have dropped this particular charity, but if Ted should ask, it is OK to include the fact that your donations didn’t seem particularly appreciated. Dear Annie: “Tired of it All” said her husband developed erectile dysfunction and stopped wanting sex. Another reader said the reason her husband stopped wanting sex was because he was gay. Here is another one: My husband, a fit man of 55, experienced erectile dysfunction for years. Doctors were quick to prescribe pills to make everything better. Instead, we chose to find out why he was having problems. It turned out that his erectile dysfunction led us to discover the tumor at the base of his spine. Most men simply would not know how to deal with such a sensitive sexual problem without compassion, guidance and understanding. -- Working Through it Together

Book and Bake Sale at Gilmanton Iron Works Library on June 18

GILMANTON IRON WORKS — The Library will hold its first Book and Bake Sale of the season on Saturday, June 18. The historic library will offer special books, videos, and DVDs, as well as a wide variety of baked goods, sweets, and other treats. “Many people return every year to our Bake Sale,” said Susannah Chance, president of the Gilmanton Iron Works Library Association. “They come looking for a favorite book or back for a treat they enjoyed last year. The variety of goodies our volunteers and neighbors donate for the sale is always amazing.” Visitors can also support the Library and take a chance to win a Barnes & Noble color Nook electronic reader as well as a $50 gift certificate to Amazon. com. Raffle tickets cost $5 and will be on sale throughout the summer at the

Library as well as at other community events, such as the Fourth of July and Old Home Day celebrations. “The choice of raffle prizes was easy,” Chance explained. “Our mission is to encourage reading in our community and these two prizes will provide two easy, portable, and affordable options. We like the idea of someone curling up next fall with a new color Nook, enjoying a good story, or a parent downloading a book for a child who joined us at Story Hour.” The prizes will be awarded when the winners are drawn on Labor Day. Serving the community since 1916, the Gilmanton Iron Works Library is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A small group of volunteers maintains the building and the library’s extensive collection of books and DVDs. For more information, visit the Library in person or on Facebook.
