Fire guts expensive Alton home By Gail OBer
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
ALTON — A two-alarm fire gutted a vacant home valued at near $2-million near the end of Piper’s Point Road Wednesday night. Deputy Fire Chief Dick Brown said the home, which is occupied but empty for the season, was engulfed in flames when the first firefighters arrived. The fire was initially reported by a man who was boating on Lake Winnipesaukee around at 11 p.m. Brown said a second caller who lives further up Piper Point Road also saw the glow in the sky and also called 9-1-1. Brown described the home as older and without a fire suppression system. He

said it did have alarms but was unsure if the alarm system was hardwired into the fire station. He said a first alarm was called about 15 minutes into the blaze and a second alarm, which brings firefighters to the area from as far away as Rochester and Middleton, was toned at 12:35 a.m. Brown said there was a dry hydrant near the home and fire companies were also able to draft water from the lake. He said there is a second building on the property but there was no danger of the fire spreading to it. Two unnamed firefighters were injured and one was taken by ambulance to Higgins Hospital in Wolfeboro. Brown said he see firE page 11 Corn & By Product FREE Eukanuba Pure

Nearly 500 injured in Vancouver riots that followed Stanley Cup loss to Bruins
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Almost 150 people required hospital treatment and close to 100 were arrested after rioters swept through downtown Vancouver following the Canucks’ loss to the Boston Bruins in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup final. Vancouver Coastal Health spokeswoman Anna Marie D’Angelo said Thursday that three stabbing victims had been admitted and a man was in critical condition with head injuries after a fall from a viaduct. Rioting and looting left cars burned, stores in shambles and windows shattered over a roughly 10-block radius of the city’s main shopping district. It was similar to the scene that erupted in 1994 following the Canucks’ Game 7 loss to see RIOTS page 24

Weiner accepts consequences of sexting scandal, resigns NEW YORK (AP) — Defiant and combative no longer, New York Rep. Anthony Weiner soberly announced his resignation from Congress on Thursday, bowing to the furor caused by his sexually charged online dalliances with a former porn actress and other women. Democratic Party leaders, concerned that Weiner could weigh the party down in the 2012 elections, welcomed the announcement after days spent trying to coax, push and finally coerce the wayward 46-year-old into quitting. Known as brash, liberal and ambitious, Weiner had run for mayor of New York in 2005 and had been expected to do so again. He was in his seventh term in Congress.
At an appearance in Brooklyn that drew hecklers as well as supporters, Weiner apologized “for the personal mistakes I have made and the embarrassment I have caused,” particularly to his wife, Huma Abedin. Pregnant with the couple’s first child, she was absent as she had been 10 days ago when Weiner first admitted sending inappropriate messages and photos to women online — after earlier denying emphatically he had done so. In his brief farewell appearance, Weiner said he initially hoped the controversy would fade but then realized “the distraction that I have created has made that impossible.”
That conclusion echoed party officials who had become worried that the intense public focus on Weiner — and the Republican political rhetoric sure to follow — would complicate their campaign efforts in 2012. “Congressman Weiner exercised poor judgment in his actions and poor judgment in his reaction to the revelations,” House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said in a statement released moments after he spoke. “Today, he made the right judgment in resigning.” Weiner made his announcement at the same senior citizen center in Brooklyn where he announced his candidacy for the see WEINER page 11
WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans and Democrats on Thursday derided President Barack Obama’s claim that U.S. air attacks against Libya do not constitute hostilities and demanded that the commander in chief seek congressional approval for the 3-month-old military operation. In an escalating constitutional fight, House Speaker John Boehner threatened to withhold money for the mission, pitting a
Congress eager to exercise its power of the purse against a dug-in White House. The Ohio Republican signaled that the House could take action as early as next week. “The accumulated consequence of all this delay, confusion and obfuscation has been a wholesale revolt in Congress against the administration’s policy,” said Sen. John McCain, the top Republican on the Armed Services Committee who has
backed Obama’s actions against Libya. The administration, in a report it reluctantly gave to Congress on Wednesday, said that because the United States is in a supporting role in the NATO-led mission, American forces are not facing the hostilities that would require the president to seek such congressional consent under the War Powers Resolution. see LIBYA page 8

Man burns himself to death in front of Keene courthouse
CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire fire officials say a Massachusetts man who set himself on fire in front of a Keene courthouse sent a letter to a local newspaper describing his frustration with the court before he took his own life. The New Hampshire medical examiner on Thursday identified the man as 58-year-old Thomas Ball of Holden, Mass. An officer who responded to the scene in front of the Cheshire County Courthouse Wednesday night said he noticed a strong odor of gasoline. WMUR-TV reports that court documents show he was in an ongoing divorce proceeding and custody battle over his three children. Ball was expected in court next week for a contempt hearing.
Michigan motorcyclist killed in accident on Rte. 28 in Pittsfield
PITTSFIELD (AP) — A Michigan man has died in a motorcycle accident in New Hampshire. Police in Pittsfield say Dennis Barker of Paw Paw, Mich. was traveling north on Route 28 on Wednesday when he veered into the southbound lane and collided head-on with an SUV. Barker was pronounced dead at the scene. Police say he was not wearing a helmet, but likely would not have survived even if we were wearing a helmet given the severity of the impact. The two occupants of the SUV were taken to a hospital as a precaution but were not seriously hurt. Police say it is unclear why Barker veered into oncoming traffic. An autopsy is scheduled to determine if he had some sort of medical issue.

Negotiators agree on $10-billion N.H. budget CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire House and Senate negotiators agreed Thursday on a $10.3 billion budget for the two years beginning July 1 that includes a last minute deal to drop the cigarette tax a dime. Negotiations fell apart Wednesday night, but House and Senate leaders met privately on Thursday and hammered out a deal that gave the House the tax cut it wanted in exchange for the Senate getting its education funding plan and a bill to streamline the shoreland protections permitting process. Negotiators plan to sign off on the budget package Friday. It will be voted on next week. The package includes a companion bill that implements a number of policy changes, including the proposed shoreland regulation changes. The school funding plan is contained in a separate bill. The Senate had resisted dropping the cigarette tax from $1.78 per pack to $1.68 cents and had voted 13-11 on June 2 to kill a House proposal to cut the tax rate. But House Speaker William O’Brien renewed the push for the cut Wednesday night. O’Brien and other supporters argue it will spur business along New Hampshire’s borders. Supporters point to a New Hampshire Grocers Association study that said a tax cut would increase tax revenue because it would increase cross-border sales. Opponents argued the state would lose money it could ill afford to lose when spending on services was being cut. The proposal adopted by negotiators puts the cut in place for the next two years so long as revenue from the levy doesn’t drop below receipts for the two years ending June 30. “New Hampshire legislators have delivered a victory to the tobacco industry at the expense of the state’s kids and taxpayers by agreeing to a budget that cuts the state cigarette tax by 10 cents per pack,” said Matthew Myers, president of Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. “If this cigarette tax cut is enacted, more New Hamp-
shire kids will start to smoke, more New Hampshire residents will die from smoking and New Hampshire taxpayers will pay the bill for higher tobacco-related health care costs.” The House had set an overall limit on what it would spend of $4.4 billion from state taxes on state operations and school aid. The compromise spends $2 million less than that limit, said Senate Finance Chairman Chuck Morse, R-Salem. He said the budget spends 11 percent less than the current budget. “It lives within our means, reduces spending, reforms state government, does not raise any taxes or fees,” he said. “I think it’s going to be tight out there, but I believe we’re going to provide the services we need to provide.” State Rep. Lynne Ober, a Republican negotiator from Hudson, noted that negotiators took great care to ensure property taxpayers would not pay more because the state is ending its subsidy for local public pension costs. The budget package shifts those costs onto employees instead. Colin Manning, spokesman for Democratic Gov. John Lynch, said Lynch has not decided if he will sign or veto the package. “We understand given the difficult financial times we are in that tough choices will have to be made” said Manning. “The governor does have some concerns which include the cuts to higher education, public safety and the safety net for our most vulnerable citizens and the ability of state government to perform core functions.” Lynch’s recommended budget cut spending about 5 percent for most agencies. The major exception was the Department of Corrections, which would get a 2 percent increase under the compromise but that is $13 million below the amount recommended by Lynch.

Weiner lacks the skillz to pay the billz “There is life after Congress for Anthony Weiner,” New York Democratic Rep. Nita Lowey grimly assured reporters on Thursday before his resignation announcement. But Weiner’s life has been nothing but Congress. Nothing but government. Nothing but taxpayersubsidized self-perpetuation. In other words: the life of a pathetic public leech. Amid vulgar heckling brought on by his own reckless behavior and smug jokes, Weiner told reporters at his three-ring press conference that there is “no higher honor in a democracy” than to be an elected representative. But like legions of entrenched swamp creatures, he’s lost sight of the simple proposition that serving in Congress should remain a temporary calling, not a lifelong career. Last year, the now-jobless Weiner joked on former roommate Jon Stewart’s cable comedy show that he didn’t “have a lot of marketable skills.” It’s one of Weiner’s rare truthful utterances over the past year. A protege of fossilized New York Sen. Charles Schumer, Weiner has spent the past 20 years in politics — straight out of college to the present. Through seven consecutive congressional terms, he has stridently advocated job-killing policies in the name of the working class, about which this ruling-class elitist knows nothing. Potomac Fever is a bipartisan disease, of course. And the Founding Fathers were rightly concerned about its corrupting consequences. At Virginia’s ratifying convention in 1788, George Mason made the case for a citizen legislature grounded in reality: “Nothing so strongly impels a man to regard the interest of his constituents, as the certainty of returning to the general mass of the people, from whence he was taken, where he must participate in their burdens.” But make no mistake: Weiner has no plans of toiling among the masses. This week’s resignation speech sounded like a future campaign kick-off: “I’ll be looking for other ways to contribute my talents,” he signaled, “so that we live up to that most New York and
American of ideals. The ideal that a family, a community and, ultimately, a country is the one thing that unites us. The one thing that we’re all focused on. With God’s help and with hard work, we will all be successful.” How, exactly, is a serial liar who antagonized his own liberal media allies by calling them “jackasses,” who countenanced libelous attacks on conservative bloggers and who threw his own family under the bus to save his political hide in a position to “unite” us all? And what, pray tell, are these “talents” of which he speaks? A lucky beneficiary of the New York Democratic political machinery, Weiner has no law degree. He has no business background. No private-sector proficiencies to pay the bills. And no hands-on experience — other than the R-rated kind, that is. When not anchored to Twitter scoping out fawning young groupies or snapping BlackBerry photos of himself at the House gym, Weiner served faithfully as one of liberalism’s loudest mouths opposing entitlement and debt reform. Meanwhile, he locked in his public pension and racked up hefty private credit-card bills. (Financial disclosure forms show he owes some $15,000 on an annual salary of less than $200,000.) He married another career political servant, Clinton intimate Huma Abedin, who has worked in government since taking on a White House internship in 1996. Now, they are expecting a child — and he is counting on the Beltway/ Big Apple revolving door to put food on the table. History, alas, is on his side. The incumbency racket eternally rewards big spenders and big redistributors of collective wealth. Among all the other sordid lessons Weiner-gate has taught us, it has reminded us that the progressive notion of “public service” is really private-job protectionism on the public’s dime.

A lot of people working in Gilford schools aren’t doing their jobs To the editor, I have to admit that I’m not surprised that the Gilford School District and the Gilford Elementary School have failed to make AYP for two consecutive years and have therefore been added to the District and School In Need of Improvement lists. It wasn’t that long ago that GES was
the top school in New Hampshire and the whole district was something to be proud of. I don’t know for sure but I seriously think that there are a lot of people working for the Gilford School District who aren’t doing their jobs. Jamie Tinsley Gilford
LETTERS If you’ve issues with your dad, address them while there’s time To the editor, Billy Cunningham, 63-year-old talk radio host recounted a gut wrenching story during his broadcast last Sunday night. His father was an alcoholic who ended up abandoning Billy, his mom and three siblings when he was 12 years old. Fast forward 15 years to when Billy was 27, recently married and a new dad himself. His father, who he had not heard from at all in those 15 years, called him requesting to see him and told him he was dying of cancer and only had a month or two to live. He basically told his dad that since he had not been there for him, he wanted nothing to do with him during his dying days and hung up. Fast forward many years later as Billy became a famous personality. People came out of the woodwork to tell Billy about their relationship with his father. His father, a marine and World War II veteran had been involved in the battles of Iwo Jima and Guadalcanal. They told him: your dad as a young man serving his country for the first time, had to kill other human beings and had to endure the agony of watching many of his buddies die bloody, horrible deaths. Back then, the VA had no mental health programs, no psychological counseling and post traumatic stress disorder was an unknown entity. They told Billy that it just tore his father
up inside. He was sucked into an emotional vortex of torture to which there was no escaping and he turned to the bottle to gain relief from the intense, unrelenting mental anguish and pain. Billy informed all of us that every father’s day, he now deals with the pangs of guilt and remorse for not being there for his dad in his time of need. He does not excuse his dad’s behavior in abandoning a family that desperately needed his love and financial support. But, it does give a level of understanding to that behavior, that had he known, would have given him some measure of relief from the pain and hurt that he had carried for all those years. It may also have afforded him the necessary insight to handle that very difficult phone call in a more compassionate and reasoned way. Billy was using his own personal journey to implore all who have issues with their dads to address them and make amends while there is still time. Mr. Cunningham’s heart rendering story should be enough to motivate most anyone to reflect on the woulda, coulda, shoulda’s with respect to their relationship with their dads. If this letter prompts just one person to pick up the phone and reach out to a mom or dad they have been estranged with, then this retelling will have been well worth it. Russ Wiles Tilton
I don’t want to live in a world without distracting political porn To the editor, Please stop Anna! Don’t take my technology away! Just when I thought texting my junk to the whole world was finally socially acceptable, you want to come rain on my parade. Don’t you dare start taking shots at a dear friend and amateur pornographer. That man is a true American. Mr. Weiner has a ridiculously high paying job, commands respect everywhere he goes, women seem to think he’s attractive (???), and he has a smoking-hot wife. Mr. Weiner, 4 — rest of the world, zero. And like a true capitalist, the Weiner wants more! The hard working politician is taking time out of his busy schedule upgrading America to
have time to Polaroid his private parts and have them carrier pigeoned to perky and willing teenage girls, Anna. With a face like a clean shaven Borat, who wouldn’t love a little eye raping from that high ranking public official now and then. A world without political pornography to distract me from issues that impact my life is not a world I want to live in. Time to rethink your position, Anna. Without technology, how am I ever going to blame my actions on inanimate object? I am however looking forward next spin on how God hates us all. Good to finally hear from a fellow tinfoil helmet wearing follower of the apocalypse. Keep up the coalition for reason. John Murphy

LETTERS We’re not electing emperor of the world, just a U.S. president To the editor, Did you ever have one of those “aha” moments when you thought that’s what happened? While listening to the Republican debate it came to me that the stage was filled with people who had all come to the same conclusion. Mr. Obama has to be defeated. They seemed to share that conviction to the point that it became apparent that they, as a group, were more intent on Obama’s defeat than they were on tearing each other up in advancing their own agenda. The debate was interesting less for the content of the debate than for the unity of purpose demonstrated. The opposition party sent a clear message that whoever the winner of their primary process is; that person will have unified support from all the component parts of the process. I expected to hear the participants debate the topics of the day and they did. The participants did not agree on the how or the priorities. I expected to hear them discuss their own perception of better courses of action and they did. They all had ideas and plans of action. That was a change from past debates. No candidate argued for change for change sake or took a position without a reasoned action plan. The debate was annoying in its format. The moderator wanted the candidates to answer all questions with one liners. Admirable as that goal is; it did not work. The candidates declined to accept slanted gotcha questions without taking the time to point out the fallacy underlying the premise of the question and there was too much talk over and interrupting. This result should have been expected. The exchange did provide a platform to view the candidates. Each received the opportunity to express
him or herself on topics of the day. The format was open to skewing in terms of time, topic and presentation. Some candidates got soft questions to deal with and others got attack style questions. There was an adversarial quality to some exchanges and a collegial quality to others. It almost slipped into the infomercial realm. The point that most struck me was the assertion that America seems to have feckless policies in several areas such as fiscal, energy, social and foreign policy. The word, feckless, means: weak, ineffective, worthless and irresponsible. The participants all had examples intended to illustrate the point. There are many areas where it can be shown that America is not better off today than it was before the last election. Illustrated out but not specifically stated is the progressive position that the world is a better place because of the actions of America. The counter point seems to be that the presidency of the United States is the leadership position for America. The election is not for emperor of the world or the head of the world’s police force or bank; rather it is for the person most able to lead America to a better future. Our decision is and should have been; who to elect to improve the lot of the people of America. It is tertiary consideration how that impacts the remainder of the world. The ground is fertile for discussing if or how America will improve conditions for its citizens. Even for those not politically inclined this election may be one of the more entertaining and important ones since Dwight Eisenhower won in the 1950s. Vote early. Vote often. Marc Abear Meredith

The professor is apparently for the U.N., P.C, Galileo and tenure To the editor, Are you concerned yet? In his column on June 13, Professor Sandy claimed he was using “hyperbole” to make his point. While some hyperbole may have been used, it was more a combination of a self-indulgent pity party and an expression of his personal creed. The pity party is that the professor strongly objects to anyone suggesting our plummeting education results might in any way be the fault of the teaching profession or, how those results might get turned around. It doesn’t matter that benefactors have willingly contributed hundreds of millions and, in some cases, billions of dollars to help improve the system. In the professor’s view, what can those eminently successful people know about education? As to his personal creed, the professor exposed himself when he listed all the things he was against — God,
country, businesses, the American flag, the Pledge of Allegiance, school uniforms for children, prayer, the military, our sovereignty, corporal punishment, anchored desks, creationism, school vouchers, competition, guns, the NRA, merit pay, God driving a Cadillac, and more. Of course, to show that he is balanced, the professor indicates his admiration for the United Nations, political correctness, Galileo, and tenure. About a month ago, the professor was given an award by Plymouth State University for being an outstanding teacher. While he may be complimented for that achievement, given the nature of what he has written, I have to wonder, if he is the university’s paradigm for excellence, what does that say about the rest of the faculty? If you’re not concerned, you’re not paying attention. Bob Meade Laconia

To the editor, There have been some interesting letters this week. The article on Wednesday, June 15 concerning “Gilmanton teachers go after Forsythe for perceived lack of support for education” was of the same way anyone who ever spoke at a town or school meeting were treated in Gilmanton. I lived in Gilmanton from 1974 till 1996 and attended more than my share of meetings, saved many articles written in newspapers on the way anyone who spoke was treated. I even got elected to an empty seat on the budget committee for one year. I don’t know how long Elena Ball has lived in the Town of Gilmanton but was surprised to hear she was appalled at the behavior of those teachers. It was that way with the school and most departments in that town. Since living in Hill, NH the past 15 years, it is becoming the same way — even worse. You could be threatened with a lawsuit if you’re not careful. I have said many times that at some
point the townspeople must remind the employees that they work for the town, not the selectman, school board or whatever. Those with attitudes shouldn’t be working in public sector anyhow. It’s time they had to do an honest days work in the private sector. My map of N.H., dated Nov. 4, 2010 shows that Gilmanton and Hill are red, so I guess it’s fair to say, you got what you asked for. I knew Carolyn W. Baldwin during my years there, enjoyed her letter and agree with what she wrote about. It is refreshing to read letters to the editor that give facts that explain what they are writing about. On Thursday, June 16 we get a letter from Steve Earle, who rattles on with his own set of facts and one ounce of proof. I will remind him that President Bush gave up looking for bin Laden after seven years. President Obama took him out in 2+ years. Henry Osmer Hill

To the editor, In his (June 14) column, “Dream School” Professor Sandy lathers ridicule all over a host of parents who may have asked for their children to have been better educated. Professor Sandy teaches teachers, at a school whose (one time and maybe still) primary business was to turn out teachers, when teaching the “Three R’s” (reading, writing and “rithmatic”) was the goal of teaching. Fifty years ago or more, “Plymouth” did well in turning out teachers, as did most “normal” schools. In those days of 50 years ago, a high school diploma was an automatic admission to college and to college level courses. That has all changed to now to teachers teaching social studies, etc. Today’s
high school graduates do so poorly in the “Three R’s” that all of them who wish to attend college have to take special placement tests before they can even enter, for example, a standard freshman mathematics class in college. The big problem today is that Professor Sandy’s students, when they get to be teachers, no longer teach the three “R’s” anywhere nearly as well as teachers used to, and society pays and pays and pays; millions and millions and millions of dollars for that decline in teaching. Ridicule is a powerful weapon, and Professor Sandy uses it well. Even so, today’s high school graduates do not have a diploma that automatically admits them to college classes. Rep. Bob Kingsbury Laconia

Kevin Sullivan started working for Melnick’s Shoe Store as a 14 year-old, then owned the shop on Main Street for nearly 30 years before selling to Bootlegger’s. Sullivan will discuss the store’s history at an event on June 20 at the Laconia Public Library. (Laconia Daily Sun photo/Adam Drapcho)
Longtime shoe store owner will discuss a 38 years of business on Main Street By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — Kevin Sullivan was hired at Melnick’s shoe store in 1969 at the age of 14. He was brought on as a stock boy, as extra help to shuffle inventory while the store and the rest of downtown underwent the “urban renewal” of the late 1960s and early 1970s, a project that re-thought and rebuilt much of the city’s business core. Sullivan worked for Sam Melnick and his son Mike for seven years. In 1979, he bought the business and operated the store for nearly 30 years, selling the business to Bootlegger’s in 2007. As part of the Laconia Historical and Museum Society’s current “Merchandising Main Street” exhibit, Sullivan will discuss his experience as a Main Street vendor on June 20 at the Laconia Public Library. His talk is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. “When I bought it, it was what you might imagine as a good, old-fashioned shoe store,” said Sullivan. “All we sold was shoes and hand bags.” That all changed, though, as Sullivan’s tenure saw the footwear market, both locally and globally, transition away from the
“good, old-fashioned” way of selling and buying shoes. “When I came in, I was one of the first Nike dealers in the area,” Sullivan said. His career as a shoe seller saw the advent of what he called the “sneaker revolution,” when athletic shoes grabbed the attention of shoe buyers. Sullivan remembers the “revolution” started with “Jox” shoes made by Thom Mcan. Nike was next to catch fire, when Melnick’s started carrying the brand, Sullivan said, the company only made a handful of shoes. “Through every decade, they are always things that just exploded. I was real good at catching that wave,” said Sullivan. By attending trade shows and carefully watching his inventory, Sullivan was successfully able to have the popular shoe of the moment in stock by the time the craze hit. “It was very fulfilling to jump on a product line and watch it explode. That was the fun of the business.” There was one relatively recent exception to Sullivan’s prescience, though. He recalls first seeing Crocs see next page

LIBYA from page 2 The 1973 law prohibits the military from being involved in actions for more than 60 days without congressional authorization, plus a 30-day extension. The 60-day deadline passed last month with the White House saying it is in compliance with the law. The 90-day mark is Sunday. In the meantime, Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi has maintained his grip on power, and the White House says if the mission continues until September, it will cost $1.1 billion. Instead of calming lawmakers, the White House report and its claims about no hostilities further inflamed the fierce balance-of-power fight. “We have got drone attacks under way, we’re spending $10 million a day,” Boehner told reporters.

at shoe shows and thinking, “Those are so ugly, I would never put them in my store.” However, his friends in the industry kept talking about how well Crocs were selling, and so he stocked them and saw what he had been missing. “It was bizarre,” he said. Sullivan’s eagerness to have a full inventory lead him into a bind one spring; he had ordered a truck full of sneakers in anticipation of warmer weather. The problem was, winter had decided to stay late that year and the snow banks were still waist-high when his bill was coming due. That was how he came to hold his first sneaker sale. “They came out of the woodwork,” he said, and the next year he intentionally over-ordered so that he could have another sale. “Once a quarter, I tried to have a gang-buster promotion,” he said. The sneaker sale was joined by a buy one, get one half-off sale, a sidewalk sale and a boot sale. Sullivan recalled how parents would keep their children home from school for a morning of discount shoe shopping. Sullivan’s business landscape changed dramatically in 1993, when the Tilton outlet mall stores opened. “You had to think differently. All of a sudden, just down the road, you’ve got 12 new shoe stores. You’ve got to distinguish yourself from the outlet stores.” Melnick’s increased its work boot section three-
“We’re part of an effort to drop bombs on Gadhafi’s compound. It doesn’t pass the straight-face test, in my view, that we’re not in the midst of hostilities.” Sen. Jim Webb, D-Va., a combat veteran and member of the Armed Services Committee, scoffed at the notion. “Spending a billion dollars and dropping bombs on people sounds like hostilities to me,” Webb said in an interview. Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., called the claims “really totally bizarre.” Rep. Tom Rooney, R-Fla., said telling Congress and Americans “that this is not a war insults our intelligence. I won’t stand for it and neither will my constituents.” The White House pushed back, singling out Boehner and saying he has not always demanded that presidents abide by the War Powers Resolution. White House spokesman Jay Carney said Boehner’s views “stand in contrast to the views he expressed in 1999 when he called the War Powers Act ‘constitutionally suspect’ and warned Congress to ‘resist the temptation to take any action that would do further damage to the institution of the presidency.” Boehner’s spokesman, Brendan Buck, dismissed Carney’s reference to a “decade-old statement.” “As speaker, it is Boehner’s responsibility to see that the law is followed, whether or not he agrees with it,” Buck said. The White House response has complicated efforts for several Democrats and Republicans urging their colleagues to hold off on any action that could fold and stopped carrying ladies’ dress shoes. He also “jumped on” New Balance shoes, which had a range of width sizes as well as lengths. “That’s where my full-service gave me an advantage.” In February of 2007, Sullivan sold the store to Bootlegger’s, an opportunity he couldn’t turn down. “It was probably a little sooner than I wanted to sell it, but not by much,” he said. Sullivan now works as a commercial real estate agent. From his viewpoint, Sullivan said those who foretell the death of downtown are mistaken. “Main Street is a very cyclical location,” he said. The recession of the late 1980s and early 1990s “was tough times,” he said, and many storefronts closed. “We went back to full occupancy in 1994.” “Right now, Main Street is coming back from the lowest point I can recall,” Sullivan said, referring to the many “holes” or vacant storefronts until recently speckled downtown. However, signs of the up-swing are readily apparent, such as the antique center moving into the former Bloom’s Variety space, something stirring with the near complete makeover of the Sundial Shop building and a committee looking into a revitalization of the Colonial Theater. “There’s going to be action,” he said, and like a shoe seller reviewing his inventory, added, “all of a sudden, we don’t have many holes.”

JUA from page one than two years of controversy and litigation stemming from Lynch’s effort to transfer $110-million from the JUA to the general fund to balance the 2009-2011 state budget. The policyholders contested the state’s claim to the funds, to which they insisted they were entitled, and ultimately the New Hampshire Supreme Court ruled in their favor. In a prepared statement, Lynch called Senate Bill 170 a “simplistic solution to a complex problem,” warning that distributing the funds to policyholders could trigger a federal tax liability that “may undermine the role of the JUA and impact the continued provision of certain medical services in New Hampshire.” For the first time in commenting on the issue the governor refrained from reiterating the state’s right to the money and questioning the ruling of the justices. The bill carried the Senate by 23 to one, with Senator Lou D’Allesandro (D-Manchester) the lone dissenter, and the House by a voice vote, sending a clear signal to Lynch that a veto would be in vain. “You’ve made my day,” said Henry Lipman, senior vice president and chief financial officer of LRGHealth-
care, who played a leading role in both the litigation and legislation, on learning that the bill would become law. “In light of the challenges the budget has presented us with,” he continued, “this is a bright spot.” Noting that LRGH paid annual premiums of more than $1-million to the JUA, Lipman emphasized that “if we paid excess premiums, the return of that money will be reinvested in the medical community to further our mission of providing health care.” Finally, he remarked that the success of the litigation and legislation “reaffirmed respect for private property rights.” The bill requires the JUA to calculate its surplus beyond the funds necessary “to remain actuarially sound,” which shall not be less than $110-million, the amount to which the state initially laid claim. Within 60 days of the effective date of the legislation, the surplus, save for $25-million held in reserve against any federal tax liability, would be placed in the hands of Merrimack County Superior Court, where the claims of policyholders would be adjudicated. Any distribution to policyholders would be subject to a claim by the JUA to satisfy any tax liabilities above $25-million. see next page

WEINER from page 2 New York city council in 1992. He declined to answer questions, leaving unaddressed whether he envisioned his resignation as the end of a once-promising political career — or merely a painful pause of uncertain duration. “Now I’ll be looking for other ways to contribute my talents so that we live up to that most New York and American of ideals,” he said. Nor did he explain his presence in New York, several days after issuing a statement that said he was seeking treatment. Other Democrats said he had left the city to do so. He had succeeded his mentor, Sen. Chuck Schumer, who vacated the seat to run for the Senate. The senator, one of a few prominent Democratic leaders who did not call for Weiner’s resignation, issued a statement saying the congressman “has served his community, city and country well for over two decades.” Weiner’s departure marks the end of a bizarre period born of the New Yorker’s use of social media such as Twitter and Facebook. His problems began on May 28 when a website run by conservative commentator Andrew Breitbart posted a lewd photograph of an underwear-clad crotch and said it had been sent from Weiner’s Twitter account to a Seattle woman. And as the scandalous chapter neared its conclusion, a former pornography actress who exchanged emails and messages over Twitter with him said Wednesday at a news conference he had asked her to lie about their interactions. Ginger Lee 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, in an email read aloud at the news conference by Lee’s attorney. Weiner’s initial reaction after the first photo became public more than two weeks ago was to lie, and he did so repeatedly, saying his Twitter account had been hacked. But he pointedly did not report the incident to law from preceding page Attorney Kevin Fitzgerald, who represents the policyholders, said that the next steps are to resolve any outstanding tax liabilities with the United States Internal Revenue Service and develop a methodology acceptable to the court for distributing the surplus funds among policyholders. — Michael Kitch

enforcement — a step that could have opened him to charges of far more serious wrongdoing. Nor were his public denials persuasive, especially when he told one interviewer he could not “say with certitude” that he wasn’t the faceless man in the underwear photo. His eventual confession triggered a tabloid-style frenzy in print and online that only grew more pronounced a few days later when an X-rated photo surfaced on a website. After initially calling for a House ethics investigation, Pelosi ramped up the pressure on Saturday when she joined with Israel and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, leader of the Democratic National Committee, in calling on Weiner to step down. President Barack Obama added to the pressure two days later, saying if he were in Weiner’s situation, he would resign.

BUDGET from page 3 tals. The House had made deep cuts to state aid to the University System of New Hampshire and the Senate cut their aid even more to provide scholarships for private college students. The compromise restored about $2 million to the system, but the aid level will mean layoffs and tuition rate increases. The compromise also included deep cuts to payments to hospitals, especially in reimbursements for caring for the poor. Cuts in state aid mean hospitals also lose matching federal funding. The New Hampshire Hospital Association immediately called upon Lynch to veto the budget. “It will increase the cost of health insurance for businesses and individuals threaten the availability of essential health care services that our communities depend on, and result in the loss of jobs and economic stability,” said association president Steve Ahnen.
House and Senate Republican leaders had promised to write budgets that did not raise fees or taxes, which meant deep cuts had to be made. Perhaps 500 state workers will be laid off as a result. The final number wasn’t clear because some cuts to agency budgets give managers flexibility in how they achieve a given dollar amount of savings. The compromise includes money restored by the Senate that the House had cut for services for the mentally ill and disabled. The Senate also had added money not in the governor’s budget for services for disabled residents on a waiting list. The compromise includes the wait list funding. The budget partially restored funding for services for youth with behavioral problems. About 90 youth with the most severe problems will receive services.

Regional sewer system officials convinced UV treatment plan was way to go FRANKLIN — At its June 8 meeting, the Winnipesaukee River Basin Program (WRBP) Advisory Board voted 8 to 2 in favor of proceeding with the Ultraviolet (UV) Disinfection/Plant Water/SCADA Improvements Project at the Franklin Wastewater Treatment Plant as recommended by the Department of Environmental Services (DES), which owns and operates the facility on behalf 10 Lakes Region communities. Paul Moynihan, Advisory Board Chairman and Laconia Director of Public Works stated “I’m convinced, as was the majority of the Advisory Board, that the project need, the choice of technology (UV), the excellent bids received and the “one-time” availability of over $ 1.2-million in project grants have coincided to make this the best long-term choice for the treatment plant and for our communities at this time.” Harry Stewart, DES Water Division Director, recommended this project to the Board as “a good long term investment for the communities that will serve to upgrade critical components of the WRBP treatment plant to extend the plant life, ensure effective treatment plant operation for the long term and ensure compliance with federal discharge permit requirements.” Due to the current unique favorable bidding climate, the low bid for construction received from Penta Corporation of Moultonborough, New Hampshire, was well below the engineer’s estimates. The actual costs to the communities have also been reduced by $1,216,000 due to two, one-time federal funding sources for the UV disinfection system making the total project cost including engineering services and construction contingency $5,993,000. The cost to the communities is about $2.6-million less than the engineer’s estimate due to the combination of favorable bid climate and federal grants and loan forgiveness. Future projects for the treatment plant, sewer interceptors and pump stations will be prioritized and scheduled using a system being developed by
the Advisory Board’s Capital Improvements Program (CIP) Subcommittee. Brian Sullivan, CIP Subcommittee Chairman and Franklin’s Director of Municipal Works, indicated that “the WRBP Advisory Board’s CIP Subcommittee is working with DES staff to identify and prioritize short and longterm capital projects. Our goal is to ensure that necessary projects occur in an affordable and timely manner. Although this latest UV project is one of the most expensive and larger projects for the wastewater treatment plant in recent years, other projects will need to be accomplished over time due to the age of these facilities to ensure effective system operation and federal permit compliance. It is important for the public and rate payer to understand the need to replace infrastructure that is at the end of its useful life. Without doing this, public health and the quality of life we all enjoy in the Lakes Region will be compromised. ” Only one other capital project is currently scheduled for the near future, the installation of meters in the large interceptor sewers as part of a study to more accurately understand the actual wastewater flows from each community to ensure accurate and fair cost allocation. DES and the communities are also working on other initiatives to ensure and improve program efficiency as well as ways to better inform, educate, and communicate with local government officials and the individual sewer customers. Moynihan further indicated that “these initiatives will collectively ensure that the WRBP will continue to improve on the already outstanding service provided to Lakes Region communities to keep our environment clean and promote a strong economy.” The Winnipesaukee River Basin Program is the state owned sewer system constructed in the late 1970s and 1980s that serves over 38,000 people in portions of 10 Lakes Region Communities. These facilities include a wastewater treatment plant located in Franklin, approximately 65 miles of interceptor sewers, and 14 pump stations.
Buchholz has to retire early but Red Sox beat Rays, 4-2 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Adrian Gonzalez homered and David Ortiz, Darnell McDonald and Dustin Pedroia drove in runs to back starter Clay Buchholz and lead the Boston Red Sox to a 4-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday night. The win was the 11th in 12 games for the AL East leaders, who concluded a 10-day, nine-game trip with an 8-1 record — Boston’s best mark on a trip of
at least nine games since 1977. The Red Sox retained a 1½-game lead over the New York Yankees in the division and dropped the third-place Rays 5½ off the pace by rebounding from losing the opener of the three-game series to win the final two. Buchholz (6-3) allowed one run and two hits in see RED SOX page 24

Pooch Café LOLA
By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There have been times when you felt small and needy, like a child who requires constant care and attention. Because you’ve had that experience, you are compassionate with one who is going through such a stage now. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You express your love so effortlessly that it is difficult for you to imagine that others cannot do this. For whatever reason, it’s hard for some people to emote. Knowing this, don’t take their nonresponse too personally. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You will not have the luxury of a completely controlled environment. There is one element that will prove unmanageable for today and many days to come. This will be a continual source of fun and adventure. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You can only take so much hard work, isolation and solitude before you just want to break out and join the party -- especially if the action is relatively mindless. Tonight brings just the release you need. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You need help. Decide who can help you and why they should. Then build the perfect pitch. Don’t forget to highlight the rewards and benefits that will surely come to any assistant of yours. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 17). It is a talent of yours to expertly work out mutually beneficial arrangements. You’ll bring people together in unexpected ways and create scenarios that only you could. The next six weeks give you more to work with in terms of financial and emotional resources. Family makes you proud in September. Leo and Taurus are your supportive fans. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 12, 42, 39 and 14.
by Richard Thompson
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You are difficult to predict, and that is precisely why so many people are watching you now. Even you are not so sure what your next move will be, but it’s certain to be exciting. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your emotional state will have a profound effect on your social interactions. So before you leave the house, take time to center yourself and slip into a fantastic mood. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You present yourself in such a way that many will want to buy what you are selling. This probably isn’t about moving hard goods. Rather, it’s a certain attitude you exude that people find highly contagious. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Avoid clashes. Be careful about what software you add to your computer, because it could conflict with what is already working quite well. Similarly, be careful about adding new people to your social circle. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You don’t always have to stand out to do well in business, and the same goes for your personal relationships. It takes courage to be ordinary, and you’ll find that you don’t really need extra attention right now. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Being uncomfortable with a circumstance will inspire you to fantasize about an alternate reality. However, avoid escaping to a romantic dream when you could be focused on making your reality better. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Just because you’re in a good mood doesn’t mean your life is without stress. You’ll handle it better than most, though, as you discover a positive way to alleviate the pressures that have built up over the week.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, June 17, the 168th day of 2011. There are 197 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On June 17, 1775, the Revolutionary War Battle of Bunker Hill took place near Boston. The battle (actually on Breed’s Hill) proved a costly victory for the British, who suffered heavy losses. On this date: In 1885, the Statue of Liberty arrived in New York Harbor aboard the French ship Isere (ee-SEHR’). In 1930, President Herbert Hoover signed the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act, which boosted U.S. tariffs to historically high levels, prompting foreign retaliation. In 1940, France asked Germany for terms of surrender in World War II. In 1944, the republic of Iceland was established. In 1961, Soviet ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev defected to the West while his troupe was in Paris. In 1971, the United States and Japan signed a treaty under which Okinawa would revert from American to Japanese control the following year, with the U.S. allowed to maintain military bases there. President Richard M. Nixon declared a “war” against drug abuse in America in a message to Congress. In 1972, President Richard M. Nixon’s eventual downfall began with the arrest of five burglars inside Democratic national headquarters in Washington, D.C.’s Watergate complex. In 1986, President Ronald Reagan announced the retirement of Chief Justice Warren Burger, who was succeeded by William Rehnquist. Singer Kate Smith died in Raleigh, N.C., at age 79. In 1991, the remains of President Zachary Taylor were briefly exhumed in Louisville, Ky., to test a theory that Taylor had died of arsenic poisoning (results showed death was from natural causes). One year ago: BP chief executive Tony Hayward told a congressional hearing he was “deeply sorry” for the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, but infuriated lawmakers as he disclaimed knowledge of any of the myriad problems leading up to the disaster. Today’s Birthdays: Actor Peter Lupus is 79. Actor William Lucking is 70. Singer Barry Manilow is 68. Comedian Joe Piscopo is 60. Actor Mark Linn-Baker is 57. Musician Philip Chevron (The Pogues) is 54. Actor Jon Gries (gryz) is 54. Movie producer-directorwriter Bobby Farrelly is 53. Actor Thomas Haden Church is 50. Actor Greg Kinnear is 48. Actress Kami Cotler (TV: “The Waltons”) is 46. Olympic gold-medal speed skater Dan Jansen is 46. Actor Jason Patric is 45. Rhythm-and-blues singer Kevin Thornton is 42. Actor-comedian Will Forte is 41. Tennis player Venus Williams is 31. Actor Damani Roberts is 15.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, June 17, 2011— Page 19
Dear Annie: My father is a dentist and earns a good living, but he is going after my money. When I graduated from high school, he took the money relatives and friends sent me and kept it for himself. A year later, he and Mom were going through a divorce, and he subpoenaed my work records to find out what I was earning. Their divorce was finally settled, but when Dad found out I was awarded a partial college scholarship of $980, he wanted “his share.” Mom and Dad both paid for my college tuition, but I worked hard to earn that small scholarship so I could stand on my own two feet. I am frustrated and a little disgusted with my father’s greed. Shouldn’t he feel proud of his daughter’s accomplishment instead of trying to steal it? His true colors came out during the divorce, and I took my mother’s side. Now he apparently has divorced me, as well. I support myself and don’t believe he is entitled to my money. What should I do? -- Spurned Daughter Dear Daughter: Unless Dad is planning to take you to court for that money, we think you should ignore his demand. It is mean-spirited and punitive. Some disturbed and misguided parents try to hurt the ex-spouse by going after the children. We hope Dad will calm down, and while you’re waiting, please consider both legal and emotional counsel. Your college counseling department should be able to help. Dear Annie: My mother passed away last year. When my sisters put up the Christmas decorations for Dad, they asked if I wanted a nativity set. I said “yes,” and they mailed it to me. I really enjoyed looking at it last Christmas. It was a lovely reminder of my mother. A few weeks ago, my brother decided he wanted that same nativity set and called my sister to see if she knew where it was. Apparently, he had given it to my parents many years
before and wanted to take it overseas with him. Instead of telling my brother that she had given it to me, my sister asked me to mail it back. I did. Is there some rule of etiquette about what happens to gifts you give to parents? Is my brother entitled to take this back because he was the one who gave it to them? Or can the surviving parent give it to whomever he chooses? It made me sad to return it, because I knew I wouldn’t be able to enjoy that memory of my mother again. -- Just Wondering Dear Wondering: When a gift is given, it belongs to the recipient, who can then do with it as he or she chooses. In many instances, however, people who are cleaning out their belongings often return items to the original givers. Sometimes this is appreciated, but not always, and it certainly is not a requirement. That said, you did the right thing returning the nativity set to your brother. It obviously means as much to him as it does to you, and we are certain that fighting over it would not have pleased Mom. Bravo for taking the high road. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Desperate for Advice,” whose friend confided that she tricked her husband into getting pregnant. I have a beef with friends who expect you to keep a secret even they don’t keep. My friend’s husband got a DUI and didn’t want anyone to know. But she told a friend, who told a friend, who told another, and now several of us have to pretend we know nothing while we watch the husband surreptitiously water down his booze in order to comply with his probation. That wife has put the burden of her secret on others and deserves to be exposed. -- Kentucky Dear Kentucky: We agree that the wife should not have told anyone but her husband. Even so, it is not the business of third parties, and “Desperate” should stay out of it.

New Sleep Lab is a dream realized for Speare Memorial Hospital in Plymouth
PLYMOUTH — A new Sleep Lab has opened at Speare Memorial Hospital (SMH), providing early diagnosis and intervention of sleep apnea to the greater Plymouth area community. According to Dr. Michele Gaier, neurologist and medical director at SMH’s new Sleep Lab, eight to 10 percent of the population — approximately 20 million Americans — suffer from sleep apnea. “Sleep apnea is significantly underreported,” noted Dr. Gaier, “but awareness of how good sleep can impact a person’s overall health has dramatically increased over the last 20 years. Sleep apnea has been linked to increased risks of high blood pressure, cardiac arrhythmias (irregular heartbeat), congestive heart failure, and pulmonary hypertension.” She added that lack of sleep ATTENTION GILMANTON RESIDENTS SPECIAL TOWN MEETING The Gilmanton Board of Selectmen will be holding a Special Town Meeting on Tuesday, June 21, 2011 at the Academy Building at 503 Province Road at 7:00 pm.
has been spotlighted as a major national safety issue, pointing to the need for work limits on truck drivers, pilots, utility workers, and the like. Obstructive sleep apnea, or blockage of the airway, is a common breathing disorder. While a person’s individual anatomy, such as a larger neck, large tonsils or a small airway, are the root cause of sleep apnea, age, weight, alcohol use, and certain medications are also contributing factors. In sleep apnea, because of gravity when a person lies down, and the decrease in muscle tension when a person falls
‘Guys and Dolls’ to launch Inter-Lakes Summer Theatre season on June 21
This meeting is to correct a procedural error in the affirmative vote taken at the annual Town Meeting held on March 13, 2011 on Article #35, which was “To see if the Town will vote to raise and appropriate Fifty Six Thousand Five Hundred Eighty-Five Dollars ($56, 585.00) for the purpose of energy improvements to the Academy Building and to authorize the Selectmen to apply for low interest loans, with interest rate not to exceed 4%, in the amount of Fifty Six Thousand Five Hundred Eighty- Five Dollars ($56,585.00) through the Community Development Finance Authority (CDFA), and to authorize the Selectmen to negotiate the terms of such loan as they see fit. These funds will not be expended unless application is approved. (Board of Selectmen Recommend $56,585.00) (Budget Committee Recommends $56,585.00) The procedural error was that a 2/3-majority ballot vote was needed for approval. Please plan to attend the Special Town Meeting.

asleep, the airway becomes blocked in the back of the throat. Dr. Gaier noted, “The typical patient referred for a sleep study complains of daytime drowsiness, snoring, and often morning headache. More men than women are affected.” Patients referred for a sleep study would consult with Dr. Gaier prior to the actual overnight sleep study at the Sleep Lap with Sleep Technologist Darcy Farina. A registered respiratory therapist, Farina brings solid knowledge and understanding of underlying respiratory issues that can be associated with sleep apnea. Arriving at the Sleep Lab between 7:30 — 8:30 p.m., patients are oriented to their room and the process for monitoring their sleep. Attaching the numerous electrodes and sensors used to monitor the patient’s sleep takes approximately an hour and includes monitoring of brain waves, stages of sleep, heart rate, the heart’s electrical activity (EKG), blood oxygen levels, body movements, and air flow in and out of the nose and mouth. There is also a microphone sensor placed on the throat. “Nothing hurts,” according to Dr. Gaier. “Most people sleep just fine.” Farina will capture data over six to seven hours of continuous monitoring. The results are given to Dr. Gaier to read and interpret. A sleep study can help diagnosis or rule out other chronic sleep disorders including periodic limb movement of sleep, REM sleep behavior disorder, and narcolepsy. With a diagnosis of sleep apnea, patients come back for a second sleep study and are fitted with a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) mask, which provides a constant flow of pressurized air keeping the airway open so patients can breathe normally. Admittedly, getting used to and regularly using a CPAP does take work. “But when you treat people and they sleep well it is life changing,” said Dr. Gaier. Combined with close patient relationships and follow-up, it is what has led to about an 85 percent compliance rate at the Sleep Lab while the national average is about 50 percent for continued usage of a prescribed CPAP. “Locally we will now be able to provide early diagnosis and intervention of sleep apnea, which nationally accounts for more than $42 million in hospital bills,” said Speare’s President and CEO Michelle McEwen, FACHE. For more information about the Sleep Lab at Speare Memorial Hospital, call 2382232.

RED SOX from page 13 innings, limiting the Rays to Sam Fuld’s second-inning RBI double and B.J. Upton’s fourthinning single before leaving the game because of lower back tightness. Tampa Bay trimmed a 3-1 deficit to one run on Casey Kotchman’s solo homer off Alfredo Aceves in the sixth. Gonzalez’s solo shot off Kyle Farnsworth restored a two-run lead in the ninth. Boston reliever Daniel Bard retired all four batters he faced and closer Jonathan Papelbon worked through a ninthinning jam to earn his 13th save in 14 opportunities. Ortiz drew a basesloaded walk in the first after Rays starter David Price (7-6) drew a warning from home plate umpire Gary Darling for hitting Kevin Youkilis with a pitch in the left arm to fill the bases. Both benches were warned, and Price settled down to strike out Jed Lowrie and get Carl Crawford to ground out. McDonald singled and Pedroia doubled to drive in runs to make it 3-0 in the second. Ortiz drew a two-out walk to load the bases against Price again, but Boston missed out on an opportunity to do more damage when Marco Scutaro popped out to end the inning. Price walked a season-high five while allowing three runs and five hits in five innings. RIOTS from page 2
