A crew of volunteer carpenters from the Lakes Region Builders & Remodelers Association, augmented by students at the Huot Technical Center’s building trades classes, were erecting a miniature version of Fenway Park’s iconic “Green Monster” left-field wall on Friday at Robbie Mills Field in Laconia. The wall is being constructed just in time for the Laconia Muskrats home opener on June 8. General Manager Noah Crane said he stacked the roster with left-handed hitters to give the home team an advantage, while the few righties on the team are excited to see who will be the first to hit a home run over the 17 feet tall, 90 feet long wall.

Recordsetting New Mexico fire grows to 339 sq. miles
RESERVE, N.M. (AP) — A wildfire burning in what New Mexico’s governor called “impossible” terrain in an isolated, mountainous area of the state continued its rapid growth Friday as forecasters called for thunderstorms and dry lightning that could spark even more fires. The massive blaze in the Gila National Forest in southwestern New Mexico is the biggest in state history and the largest currently burning in the country. It scorched an additional 39 square miles in the past day, growing to nearly 340 square miles, as more than 1,200 firefighters worked to halt its spread. Firefighters conducted more burnout operations in an effort to corral the erratic blaze that has injured six people, the fire’s incident management team said Friday. None of the injuries was serious. The fire was about 10 percent contained. Fire information officer see FIRE page 12

U.S. unemployment rate ticks up after weak job growth WASHINGTON (AP) — The American economy is in trouble again. Employers in the United States added only 69,000 jobs in May, the fewest in a year and not even close to what economists expected. For the first time since last June, the unemployment rate rose, to 8.2 percent from 8.1 percent. It was the third month in a row of weak job growth and further evidence that, just as in 2010 and 2011, a winter of hope for the economy has turned to a spring of disappointment. “This is horrible,” said Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at High Frequency Economics, a consulting firm. The job figures, released Friday morning by the Labor Department, dealt a strong
blow to President Barack Obama at the start of a general election campaign that will turn on the economy. They also deepened the pessimism of investors, who even before the report was released were worried about a debt crisis in Europe with no sign of solution and signs of a slowdown in the powerhouse economy of China. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 275 points, its worst day of the year, and for the first time was down for 2012. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index is almost 10 percent below its 2012 high, the traditional definition of a market correction. Mitt Romney, who on Tuesday cleared the number of convention delegates required to win the Republican presiden-
tial nomination, told CNBC that the report was “devastating.” He called for an emphasis on energy development, pledged to “kill” the health care overhaul that Obama saw through in 2010 and said he would reduce taxes and government spending. The clearest fix for the economy, he said, was to defeat Obama. “It is now clear to everyone that President Obama’s policies have failed to achieve their goals and that the Obama economy is crushing America’s middle class,” said Romney, the former Massachusetts governor. Obama, in Minnesota, pushed a proposal to expand job opportunities for veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. He see ECONOMY page 11
Saying he lied about finances, judge orders Zimmerman back to jail
SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — Trayvon Martin’s shooter must return to jail, a judge ordered Friday in a strongly worded ruling that said George Zimmerman and his wife lied to the court about their finances to obtain bond in a case that hinges on jurors believing his account of what happened the night the teen was killed. Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder for the February shooting. The neighborhood watch volunteer says he shot Martin in self-defense because the unarmed 17-year-old was beating him up after confronting Zimmerman about following him in a gated com-

munity outside Orlando. Zimmerman was arrested 44 days after the killing, and during a bond hearing in April, his wife, Shellie, testified that the couple had limited funds available. The hearing also was notable because Zimmerman took the stand and apologized to Martin’s parents. Prosecutors pointed out in their motion that Zimmerman had $135,000 available then. It had been raised from donations through a website he set up and they suggested more has been collected since and deposited in a bank account. Shellie Zimmerman was asked about the

website at the hearing, but she said she didn’t know how much money had been raised. Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester set bail at $150,000. The 28-year-old was freed a few days later after posting $15,000 in cash — which is typical — and has since been in hiding. Prosecutor Bernie De la Rionda complained Friday, “This court was led to believe they didn’t have a single penny. It was misleading and I don’t know what words to use other than it was a blatant lie.” The judge agreed and ordered Zimmerman returned to jail by Sunday afternoon. see ZIMMERMAN page 13

Jurors talk about what led to deadlock at Edward’s trial Hampton Beach spruced GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Jurors in John The jurors acquitted Edwards on one count of up with $14.5-million worth Edwards campaign corruption trial said Friday accepting illegal campaign contributions and deadthey were deadlocked on most charges because locked on the other five. the former presidential contender never actually “Everybody’s got their own beliefs based off of of improvements received any money from two wealthy donors to hide what they saw,” Nunn told ABC’s “Good Morning
HAMPTON, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire’s Hampton Beach has survived years of severe weather and a number of fires. Now, it’s celebrating a much-needed facelift. Beachgoers and state and town officials are cheering about $14.5 million in recently completed renovations to the beach area. They include the construction of a new Seashell entertainment complex and visitors center; the overhaul of bathhouses at the north and south end of the promenade; shady spots for sitting; and an improved walkway. There are new LED streetlights, large sail-shaped “Sunfish” lining the crosswalks along nearby Ocean Boulevard and water-spouting columns to help people wash the sand off their feet. Even the World War II memorial on the beach, a granite statue of a woman holding a wreath in honor of those lost at sea, has an updated look. Construction workers extended the sea wall, circling it around the statute, to make it fit in better with the landscape. “I love the shell,” said Beverly Horton, a 13-year resident of Seabrook. “We’ll just have to see how the crowds handle it and how the summer goes. I’m hoping it puts Hampton Beach on the map.” A ceremony marking the improvements took place Friday. An art show will take place on Saturday, along with entertainment on the Seashell stage. The Hampton Beach Historical Society also is presenting a timeline of scenes from the beach, including a look at swimsuits through the years. “While tourism is vital to the economic engine of our state, and Hampton Beach is a critical part of our tourism industry, there were some who said we should not invest in revitalizing the seashell,” Gov. John Lynch said in remarks prepared for the event. “But we made it a point to invest $14 million from the state capital budget to do this long overdue rehabilitation.” He added, “Not only do we have facilities here that all of us in New Hampshire can be proud of, but I truly believe this will continue to revitalize the entire beach for several years to come.” In a state with only 18 miles of coastline, the 1½-mile strip has been a popular spot for generations of New Englanders and tourists who don’t want to put up with Cape Cod traffic. Once a barren place used for farming hay, it transitioned into a busy area with beachwear shops, arcades and fried dough and pizza stands and motels. It has been the sight of the annual “Miss Hampton Beach” contest, a children’s week, a regatta, and in recent years, a singing competition. The beach received a national ranking several years ago as one of the cleanest. The beachside businesses have been victims of major fires in the past, including one in February 2010, that took out an entire block of businesses. That has left some vacant spots along Ocean Boulevard, but also a desire by town officials to upgrade the look of the community. “I hear from people all the time who haven’t been up here in a while that they can’t believe how nice it looks,” said Bob Mitchell, owner of the Ocean Boulevard souvenir shop Mrs. Mitchell’s Gifts, which reopened last year after being destroyed by the 2010 fire. “It’s been a huge effort by the state, the district and everybody to kind of rejuvenate things, and they’ve done a great job.”
his pregnant mistress, and they didn’t believe the star witness’ account of the cover-up. On network talk shows, even jurors who thought Edwards was guilty on at least some of the six counts of campaign finance fraud said the prosecution simply didn’t have enough evidence. The jurors did not say what the split was, in terms of guilty votes. “We tried to put our feelings aside and what we were doing was just looking at the facts to come up with a verdict,” juror Cindy Aquaro said on NBC’s “Today” show. Juror Jonathan Nunn said he thought the money from the two wealthy donors were personal gifts, not campaign donations.
America.” ‘’They stood their ground. They stood by their decision and I respect that.” Trial observers said the jury’s decision bore out criticism from the earliest stages of the case that it was a reach, that prosecutors went after the ex-U.S. senator without the kind of evidence that justified the charges that he masterminded a scheme to use campaign donations to hide his pregnant mistress from the public and his terminally ill wife. “As noted by nearly every campaign finance lawyer who considered the matter, this was a lousy case,” said Melanie Sloan, executive director for the campaign finance watchdog group Citizens for Responsee TRIAL page 9

Pump & Dump, Part 2 In the beginning, there was pump and dump. In the dot-com bubble of the late ‘90s, the stock-analyzing arms of investment banks would pump up a new stock’s price with rave reviews. The banker arm underwriting the new stock issue would sit back, watch the price explode and then dump it — as would their favored customers. The folks who fell for the hype and bought in at inflated prices were the little investors, also known as “dumb money.” This scheme was deemed unfair to ordinary investors, so a reform was put in place that appeared to require analysts to keep their mouths shut before an initial public offering. It forbade analysts to publish written reports, be they on paper or electronic, containing new information about the company. Notably absent was any mention of telephones. Along comes the fantabulous Facebook stock offering and ensuing fallout. Suspicions are high that a select few were told about Facebook’s recently disappointing revenues, which might not justify the initial public offering price of $38. They got out the minute they could, or they sold the stock short or made other bets that the stock price would fall. The Securities and Exchange Commission is looking into the matter. And a shareholder class-action suit has been filed. Meanwhile, if the conversations about Facebook’s revenues were done by telephone or over cocktails, it is unclear that anyone broke the law. But this is clear. The Facebook IPO dance was not about investing for the long term, though the dumb money may have thought so. Did you notice how, in the goodness of their hearts, Facebook and the bankers made an unusually high number of shares available to the public at the initial offering price? As of Tuesday, Facebook’s stock price was down 24-percent from the initial public offering. Whether the analysts whispered into a few privileged ears almost should not have mattered, because the carnival surrounding the Facebook IPO should have set off all kinds
of alarms. First off, serious commentary noted that having a zillion members didn’t necessarily mean Facebook had found a way to make a zillion dollars off them. Just days before the offering, General Motors said that it was pulling its ad campaign off Facebook because the site apparently wasn’t selling cars for them. This was in the newspapers, or at least the business sections. But on many front pages and less insightful television news programs, it was all rock bands and glamour. It was about Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in his hoodie and how fabulously rich the 28-year-old was about to become. And there were reminders of other tech startups enriching early investors beyond their dreams. Remember Google. Furthermore, Facebook was a product that its users understood. The company had infiltrated their daily lives. Perhaps it sold their personal information to advertisers, but it did so with a smiley face. Users would visit the pages of their celebrities, where they’d find tidbits of personal information, lending an air of intimacy. “I get the dish right from the celeb’s mouth,” a 42-yearold Michigan mother told The Wall Street Journal. Like other social media, Facebook helped the big names develop their pages, on which it could place ads. For many ordinary people, Facebook ran the world. The setup was complete, the lambs lined in a row. Naturally, the hedge funds pounced. Do we need a new regulation? It’s been suggested that analysts be banned from giving information to anyone before an IPO in which their bank is an underwriter. Think about enforcing it, and there’s only one conclusion to make: In the end, there will be pump and dump. (A member of the Providence Journal editorial board, Froma Harrop writes a nationally syndicated column from that city. She has written for such diverse publications as The New York Times, Harper’s Bazaar and Institutional Investor.)
I exercise my rights in way that infringes on no one else To the editor, In response to Sandra Coleman’s recent letter, I would recommend that she read the Bill of Rights, a document with which she is apparently not too familiar, in particular the First Amendment. It outlines some of the most basic rights that we Americans have. I will be among the first to accept and defend her right to express her beliefs and convictions, whether economic, political, religious or social, in a manner that she feels is appro-
priate for her, as long as it does not infringe upon someone else’s rights. While I have full respect for her strongly held opinions and do not wish or intend to suggest otherwise, I choose to exercise my Constitutional Rights in a manner that does not infringe upon her or anyone else’s rights; and she seems to have a problem with that, hence my suggestion that she read the Bill of Rights.

LETTERS Pres. Obama has vision of how government should serve people To the editor, Now that former Governor Romney has clinched the Republican nomination, it is important to consider how his performance as governor of Massachusetts might predict how he would act as president. Mr. Romney said he would reduce spending and debt in Massachusetts while increasing jobs. In fact under his watch state spending increased by 6.5-percent and long-term debt increased by over $2.5-billion, leaving Massachusetts with the largest per capita debt in the nation. During his reign the state ranked 47th out of 50 states in job creation. He did manage to balance the budget. How did he do it? He did it by cutting spending on education and RAISING TAXES, primarily on the middle class. His expertise in business, as has often been mentioned, didn’t produce much that we can rely on either. His efforts as a corporate buyout specialist weren’t really designed to create jobs. In some cases that did happen, willy-nilly, but his real goal was to make great profits for him and his investment partners. (He was really good at that!) That experience wouldn’t really help run our national government, which is not about creating profits for a few, but rather about providing services that only government can provide and a safety net for all our citizens. Mr. Romney’s plan to cut taxes and the budget proposal he supports would ravage those services and unravel the safety net. Mr. Romney does not want to talk about or take credit for the one really
good thing he did while governor of Massachusetts, creating a successful health care insurance plan with an individual mandate that now covers so many previously uninsured Massachusetts citizens. Talking about that success might remind people what a great thing the Affordable Care Act, certainly a highlight of President Obama’s presidency, really is. That the ACA is modeled after Romney’s Massachusetts plan is an inconvenient fact, a topic to be avoided. How sad! Instead Mr. Romney claim to government experience rests on statements about reducing spending and creating jobs in Massachusetts, which frankly were anything but successful. His protestations to the contrary will not make them true, no matter how many times he repeats them. What a contrast to President Obama’s vision of how government should serve the people. He knows there is a lot more to do to bring America out of the deep recession, but we are moving forward as a country, creating over four million private sector jobs on his watch. Supporting the middle class, growing the economy and thereby increasing revenues is the sustainable way to help reduce the deficit long-term. The deficit caused by the recession, as well as the Bush-era tax cuts, two wars and Medicare Part D — all of which were unpaid for — would only increase under Mr. Romney’s proposals. That’s a risk we can’t afford. Paula Trombi Meredith
Fact: Tens of millions of American homes are heated by oil To the editor, Joy oh Joy, let the news ring out throughout the land, “green already quite profitable”, reveals Tim Sullivan here in these pages on Thursdays edition. Well not quite so fast readers, and please excuse my sarcasms. Look, anyone can find an exception to the rule here and there, now and then, but does that mean we are now secure from our government investing (wasting) millions or billions of dollars by using tax payer money to prop up an industry which does nothing but cause the cost of energy to rise for the
vast majority of us? Clearly NO! It is still an undeniable fact of life that the homes of tens of millions of America families are heated by OIL. When the American president decides to drive coal fired electric plants out of business before replacement units of some kind are in place and declares it will cause the costs to “skyrocket” who is going to get hurt here? Answer is regular people. Working families, retired, elderly and the poor are the obvious injured parties. Are we, the 99-percent, supposed to cough up tens of thousands of dollars see next page

LETTERS Why is Bill Grimm running for N.H. Senate? What are his positions? To the editor, As many of you are already aware, I am running for N.H. Senate, District 7. Recently I attended and spoke at the Merrimack County GOP Committee meeting at the Red Blazer Restaurant in Concord alongside my challenger, Bill Grimm from Franklin. It was nice to see some familiar faces and to meet so many new people as well. It was a nice opportunity for the committee members to “meet the candidates.” One thing I left asking myself was “Why is Bill Grimm running?” I don’t mean that at all sarcastically — it is simply a question, the answer to which I am still unsure of. After the question and answer session, I was left with several more questions about Mr. Grimm’s positions on the issues, which he did not make clear. These questions are not about his character, they are about his positions: Is Bill Grimm going to vote raise taxes, yes or no? Where exactly does Bill Grimm stand on the death penalty? Where exactly would Bill Grimm cut state government spending? I make my positions on the forego-
ing questions very clear: I will never vote to raise or implement new broad-based taxes. I believe the death penalty must be expanded to punish heinous, premeditated crimes — not just capital offenses. I intend to cut spending by focusing on inflated salaries, over-appropriated departments and state agencies, and to even possibly eliminate select state departments altogether. The people of New Hampshire deserve honest and forthright answers from the candidates that seek to serve them. I will always give a clear and defined answer to voters’ questions — in writing if requested — and if there is an answer that I do not readily possess, I will contact the voter promptly with my precise position.

Romney endorses plan that will destroy SS, Medicare & food stamps To the editor, I will say that probably many hundreds of thousands of people in the U.S. watched “Pretty Woman” starring Julia Roberts (Vivienne) and Richard Gere (Edward). It was a good romantic comedy filmed in 1990. The plot: Edward is a rich, ruthless businessman who specializes in taking over companies and then selling them off piece by piece. Vivienne is a prostitute who Edward hired for a week. His time with Vivienne has shown him another way of life — taking time off and enjoying life .Edward decides that he wants to create things rather than just making money. Just a movie! We are living it now with Mitt Romney and Bain Capital. However, Mitt never met a “Vivienne” during his time with Bain Capital. Mitt Romney is the Edward before he
met Vivienne. At Bain Capital he took over companies for the sole purpose of making money without regard to the families he was destroying. REAL people lost their jobs, retirement plans and health insurance under his leadership in that company. Do we really want this kind of man as president of the U.S.? I don’t. Romney is embracing the Ryan plan that will totally destroy Medicare, Medicaid, and food stamps. These are the programs which Romney called the safety net for the poor and yet under the Ryan plan they will not exist. The Ryan plan also calls for more taxes for the middle class and poor, and reduces taxes for the rich which Mitt Romney supports. This is not a movie it is the future of America. Cathy Dawson Laconia

Get real, until windmills and solar panels can provide heat and electricity at costs equal to or lower then coal and oil then it is not READY FOR PRIME TIME. As for a page full of well-researched facts and figures I have read several reports over the years that letters to editors that run more then three
or four paragraphs seldom hold the attention of readers. That probably accounts for much of the stuff Tim refereed to in rebuttal today that I hadn’t read. See, I just didn’t bother with all the boiler plating he stuck in there trying to tell us that Obama’s grand plan was really good for us and we should shut up and take our medicine like good children.

State Senator Jeanie Forrester
Let’s look at what the N.H. Legislature accomplished in 2011 The 2012 legislative session is coming to an end and the last couple weeks have been intense. I was the prime sponsor on 15 pieces of legislation ranging from issues relating to Medicaid payments to a bill that establishes a commission to study energy infrastructure corridors. As of today, six of my bills were voted inexpedient to legislate; three were signed into law by the governor; three have passed both bodies and are awaiting the governor’s signature; and three will be voted on in the House this week. As I look back over what we’ve accomplished this year, I thought it would be helpful to recap the 2011 session and, in the next column, report on 2012. The 2011 legislative session stands out not only for its accomplishments, but also for the resolve shown by elected officials to deliver on what the voters of New Hampshire sent them to Concord to do: live within our means, stop out-ofcontrol spending, and eliminate the $800 million deficit. We successfully conducted the people’s business at a most challenging time for both our state and our nation. Here are the highlights: The biggest issue we faced was building and passing a new budget for FY 2012-2013. The Republicanled legislature produced a truly balanced, two-year budget that spends $10.2-billion in total funds (an 11-percent reduction from the last biennium), projects realistic revenues, had no new or increased taxes or fees, and accounted for over $400-million in federal stimulus funds spent over the prior two years that were not available this biennium. The Senate led the fight to balance the budget. We did so by example, cutting our chief of staff’s salary by 30-percent, restructuring committee staff to require fewer employees, replacing outgoing staff at lower salaries, and instituting a one-year pay freeze for all legislative employees. We also enacted legislation to keep future budget increases down and further protect taxpayer dollars by adopting: SB-146, a bill requiring state agencies to submit reduced spending alternatives when they build their budgets every two years; SB-151 requiring the consolidation of government contracts that will allow the state to use economies of scale to bring costs down; and HB-635, requiring a consolidation of state agency functions to create a savings of $35-million over the biennium. Besides a balanced budget, other legislative successes included: — Comprehensive Pension Reform (HB-2/SB-3) which reforms the state’s public pension system to ensure a viable retirement system for current and future pensioners, provides stability and prevents the skyrocketing growth of retirement
— Education Funding (HB-337) which maintained the current education adequacy funding level, making only slight changes in order to establish a calculation better focused on the student. — Medicaid Managed Care (SB147): With a shift from our current fee-for-service structure to managed care, NH joins 30+ other states who have successfully implemented this model and we anticipate $33 million in savings. Managed care provides coordinated services to Medicaid enrollees through a network of providers and manages appropriate and effective health care services. — Parole Reform (SB-52) provides important, common sense amendments to SB-500 to ensure the state parole board has the discretion to keep dangerous criminals behind bars for their full sentence. — Second Amendment (SB-88) protects Second Amendment rights by eliminating a person’s duty to retreat when threatened with deadly force. — Business-Friendly Legislation: We eliminated the state’s tax on gambling earnings (HB-229); addressed reasonable compensation (SB-125); introduced legislation to encourage new venture capital investments (HB-605); and enhanced the relationship between government and business by requiring the Department of Labor to work with companies versus simply fining them for violations (SB-86). — Government Reductions & Reforms: Eliminated nearly 1,000 government positions that were already vacant; eliminated a state mandate that local union contracts provide pay increases even after they expire; and enacted common sense legislation allowing agency heads to transfer employees as necessary to fill vacancies, instead of hiring additional staff. By balancing the budget, holding the line on spending, keeping taxes low, and reducing red tape from Concord, the Senate helped our economy to grow, more free from government burdens. These efforts help us preserve and strengthen the “New Hampshire Advantage”, attract new business, and ensure the Granite State continues to lead the nation out of the recession.

2nd day of hearing before Liquor Commission focuses on lack of food sales at Gilford night club By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
CONCORD — In yesterday’s continuation of the Liquor Commissioners hearing on the future of the Gilford restaurant/night club building that most recently housed the Mardi Gras North strip club, the owner of the property and one of the former security employees, who also was a cook, testified that they made repeated changes to the club’s food menu in an effort to satisfy liquor enforcement concerns over not meeting the acceptable food-to-alcohol sales ratios. Property owner Willard Drew and former employee Carlos Duclos, who worked there for 18 months, both said they never saw employees of the club using or selling drugs. Drew was landlord to the Mardi Gras North when it was raided by the N.H. Drug Task Force on October 18, 2011 after a four-month investigation triggered by an undercover drug deal involving a DTF agent who said he was told by the person who allegedly sold him the drugs to meet at the club where he met his supplier. The club closed in December of 2011 and Drew, who holds the liquor licence voluntarily put it in “safekeeping status” with the Liquor Commission until seven separate alleged violations of state liquor laws could be adjudicated by the commission. The seven violations are that a customer was served beyond the point of intoxication; that employees were consuming alcohol while working; that employees were taking drinks in unapproved areas; that the bartenders were giving free drinks; that the club didn’t serve a diversified enough menu; that liquor bottles were being refilled; and, most significantly, that the property was being used for unlawful purposes — namely drug peddling. Yesterday’s testimony centered largely around the menu and food violations and what actions club ownership was taking to correct them. Thursday’s seven hours of testimony centered on whether or not club owners and managers knew there were allegedly employees engaging in unlawful drug sales and use and if Drew had the right to lease his liquor license to someone else without commission approval. Gilford Police Lt. Kris Kelley also
testified he that members of the Hells Angels have a presence in the Lakes Region, have been considered an “outlaw motorcycle club,” have a club chapter in Laconia, but said he had no first-hand knowledge of any Angelrelated drug activity at the Mardi Gras. Kelley also testified that police responded to the club about 18 times in the 90 days preceding the October 18, 2011 raid and that police leadership felt there were needed there “more than we felt the should.” Under cross-examination from Drew’s lawyer David Bownes, Kelley said that he didn’t bring statistics for other nightclubs but acknowledged that police also regularly respond to other establishments in Gilford that serve alcohol. Kelley also said the Gilford Police were unaware of the DTF operation until about one week before October 18. State Food Safety inspector Robert Brodeur testified that his inspection shortly after the raid indicated that there were Fry-o-laters, a grill, refrigerators, freezers and a convection oven that were all working. He described the menu as one of fry, grill, plate and serve — “pub-type food.” He also said some small repairs were needed in the three-bay sink and some thermometers weren’t working. As part of Drew’s rebuttal, he said he had owned the Kings Grant Inn for 21 years and operated as a 500 seat restaurant and lounge until he was told he needed to intall a sprinkler system in 2009 and had reduce his customer capacity to 99 or less. The state requires all business with less than $75,000 in sales derive at least 50-percent of those sales from food. Drew said the past full year he operated, food sales had been just about $32,000 and that’s why his management team was working with the liquor enforcement bureau to change the menu to increase sales. There was some discussion as to the position of the town as it regarded exotic dancing, and Drew and Bownes testified that they had prevailed in a First Amendment summary judgement in federal court against the town of Gilford when the town initially sought to prevent exotic dancers in the early 2000s. After four hours of testimony, Commissioner Mark Bodi cut to the chase. “Do you think you could continue to operate given what we know? he see next page

from preceding page asked of Drew. Drew told him it was his intention to development or sell to developers a portion of his property and continue his operation, to include exotic dancers, to pay the bills that include about $80,000 in back taxes to the town of Gilford. Two weeks ago, Drew and the town came to an agreement that if he fixed the building code violations, he could reopen with a disk jockey and a beerand-wine license only until the commission made its final ruling. In exchange for the agreement, the town said it would not challenge taking his liquor license out of safekeeping. Yesterday afternoon, Drew said that after the hearing, he, Town Administrator Scott Dunn, Chief Liquor Enforcer Eddie Edwards agreed that he could use the disk jockey provision of his license and hold karaoke and blues night during Motorcycle Week as long as he continued to serve only beer and wine. Drew said he asked for three nights of exotic dancing but was told “no” by Dunn, even though his adult entertainment permit is in effect until the end of June as long as he has a liquor license. When contacted, Dunn said that the town agreed to allow Drew to open with the disk jockey, beer and wine and not contest the license, but only if he didn’t have exotic entertainment. Dunn said that until the Liquor Commissioner issues its final judgement on the status of Drew’s liquor licence, the contingency plan the three parties hammer out two weeks ago will stay in place. Closing arguments are scheduled for June 13 at the Storrs Street offices at 9 a.m. After then, commissioners will review all the evidence and issue and ruling. The commission gave no indication as to how long a ruling could take.
Court document details alleged drug sales to undercover agent By Gail OBer
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — A local judge ordered a Stark Street man held on $15,000 cash and $50,000 personal recognisance bail for allegedly selling heroin and oxycodone. The arrest of Joseph Raso came after a 11 month-long Drug Task Force investigation. Affidavits submitted in the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division yesterday indicate Sgt. Frank Cassidy of the Merrimack County Sheriff’s Office met with a confidential informant on July 7, 2011 who had previously told another DTF police officer he or she allegedly knew Raso was a source of a variety of drugs. He said the informant made a phone call and arranged to buy four 30mg pills of oxycodone for $140. Cassidy said he went with the informant to connect with Raso in the parking lot of a downtown business and was introduced to him as “Joey.” Cassidy said he bought the drugs and “Joey” allegedly told him the two could deal directly with each other and the information would provide a contact phone. BANKS from page one will keep its own name and state charter, be overseen by its own board of directors and managed by its own executive team. “This is not a merger or an acquisition,” Laverack stressed. “No money is changing hands. No signs will be changed. It is a partnership, an alliance.” When Laverack and Rizzi broke the news to their employees at separate meetings on Thursday evening, they received standing ovations. “How often does that happen?” Laverack asked. Laverack and Rizzi will serve as co-chief executive officers of the holding company and each will serve as a director of both banks. Rick Wyman, chief financial officer of Meredith Village, will hold the same post at the holding company while Phil Emma, his counterpart at Merrimack County, will become chief
On July 13, 2011 Cassidy allegedly contacted Raso directly and make an arrangement to buy some heroin — a transaction allegedly consummated at a Court Street convenience store. On July 19, 2011 Cassidy met with Laconia Det. Christopher Noyes and Noyes was able to identify “Joey” as Joseph Raso, 29, of 160 Stark St. Later that day, Cassidy said he called Raso for more heroin and the two originally agreed to meet downtown again but Ruso allegedly changed the place to a restaurant in Gilford. Cassidy said he purchased $360 of heroin from Raso. On July 28, 2011 he contacted Raso again and the two allegedly met behind a South Main Street eatery and Cassidy allegedly purchased $360 of heroin from Raso. Raso is scheduled to for a probable cause hearing in circuit court on June 8. If he posts bail, he must report to the Laconia Police daily and can be subjected to random drug testing.
operating officer of the holding company. Wyman and Emma will also serve in the same capacity at both banks. Rizzi recalled that the initiative grew from a conversation between the pair about the challenges, unknowns and risks facing facing the banking industry in general and and community banks in particular. He said that the rising costs of technological innovation and regulatory compliance weighed heavily on community banks, which increasingly found themselves incurring expenses out of proportion to their size. “We’re both making the same investments in compliance and security as well as Internet and mobile banking,” Laverack said. “We decided to invest it once. It’s about efficiency.” see next page

TRIAL from page one sibility and Ethics in Washington. “All the salacious details prosecutors offered up to prove that Edwards is, indeed, despicable, were not enough to persuade the jury to convict him.” Edwards faced six felony charges involving nearly from preceding page At the same time, Rizzi said that the alliance would enhance competitive position of both banks. “We’ll be able participate together in larger loans,” he said, “and because regulation restricts the amount of loans to single borrowers, by doubling our limit we can compete with larger banks for lending opportunities.” Likewise, the two banks will be able to double the size of deposits protected by federal deposit insurance. Customers of both banks will ultimately have access to a common ATM network without charge as well as conduct business at either bank. Both Laverack and Rizzi, with the support of their boards of directors, share a firm commitment to maintaining the independent status and mutual ownership of their banks. Without stockholders, mutual institutions need not cater to the immediate expectations of investors and markets, but can invest prudently, with an eye to the interests of their community, customers and employees and their own sound, sustained growth. The stability of the two banks amid recent turmoil in financial services, both agreed, confirmed their confidence in the mutual form of ownership. The two banks are a well matched pair, with similar histories, characters, structures and sizes. Founded in 1869, Meredith Village employs 200 people at 11 offices in the Lakes Region and Plymouth area. Merrimack County opened in Concord, where it is headquartered, in 1867 and has seven offices in and around the capital and in Nashua. Each bank will continue to serve and expand within its defined market.

not only that the candidate knew about the secret payments, which he denied, but that he knew he was violating federal law by accepting them. But the government was unable to produce any witness who said Edwards knowingly violated the law. Even former Edwards aide Andrew Young testified that Edwards told him he had consulted campaign finance lawyers who assured him the money was legal. A former trial lawyer, Edwards was so unimpressed with the testimony against him that when the government rested, he turned to a member of his defense team and asked dismissively, “That’s their case?” When it was their turn, his lawyers presented just two days of evidence. Edwards elected not to take the stand in his own defense. “This is a case that should define the difference between a wrong and a crime ... between a sin and a felony,” Edwards’ lead attorney Abbe Lowell told the jury during closing arguments. “John Edwards has confessed his sins. He will serve a life sentence for those.” Presented with no damning evidence and no obvious victim beyond the public’s trust, jurors couldn’t see their way to convicting the charismatic ex-candidate. Prosecutors are unlikely to retry the case, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the decision will undergo review in the coming days. Kieran Shanahan, a former federal prosecutor and Raleigh defense attorney who attended the trial, said he thought the prosecutors took their best shot with what was ultimately a very weak case. “They got their best witnesses, their best evidence and the judge ruled in their favor on all major evidentiary issues,” Shanahan said. “In the end, the jury just didn’t believe them.” Steve Friedland, another former federal prosecutor who watched the case from inside the courtroom, said the jury’s verdict was not surprising, considering the government had no smoking gun to prove Edwards guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

GILFORD from page one The board had previously been advised by Mitchell that a judge’s blessing would not be required in this case because voters wouldn’t be asked to raise any money in 2012. Payments on the truck would not begin until 2013. Upon request from Budget Committee member David Horvath, Sr., however, an attorney at the LGC this week offered a contrary opinion. Christine Fillmore advised that RSA 31:5 requires that a judge authorize any special town meeting at which voters are asked to “raise or appropriate” funds. The only alternative is to have at least 50-percent of voters participate in the decision — a practical impossibility. Selectmen have insisted they have not been trying to end-run RSA 31:5, only trying to expedite the process that could lead to a new pumper truck. Selectmen are scheduled to meet at 6 p.m. Monday to discuss Dunn’s recommendation and he said the discussion will be about the warrant article that was approved by the Budget Committee last week by an 8-to-4 margin. Dunn also said the Budget Committee will not
need to meet on Monday because the warrant would stay the same. The lone article call for the longterm lease/purchase of a pumper tanker for the Fire Department at a cost of $441,000. On Wednesday, there had been discussion about amending the proposed warrant article to state that future town meetings would not be committed to appropriating funds to make payments on the truck. Dunn also wanted to clarify that he did not advise selectmen that the warrant article, as originally written, would not get the town around the requirements of RSA 31:5 — as was reported in the Laconia Daily Sun on Thursday. Should the selectmen vote to ask a superior court judge to declare the absence of Engine 4 an emergency, RSA 31:5 says the board must post the decision within 24 hours and wait 10 days before submitting it to a sitting judge. Dunn said that if the decision is made to go to the judge, the time frame for a June deliberate session and a July 31 vote would likely be changed to later in the year. If the petition is made to the judge, he or she has a set of five criteria, according to RSA 31:5 that must be met before an emergency can be certified: the severity of the harm, the urgency of the petitioner’s need, whether the emergency was foreseeable or avoidable; whether the appropriation could have been made at annual town meeting and if there are alternative measures wouldn’t require a special town meeting. — Gail Ober

Worker seriously injured in 30+ foot fall from tree LACONIA — A worker suffered serious injuries when he fell 30 to 40 feet from a tree on O’Shea Lane Friday morning. Lt. Chad Vallaincourt of the Laconia Fire Department said the victim of the fall was taken to Lakes Region General Hospital and later transferred by
DART helicopter to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon. He said that the accident was reported at 10:47 a.m. and rescue workers were on the scene at 10:49 a.m. — Roger Amsden
LHS from page one fees; fixtures furniture and equipment; and funds for contingencies — are estimated at $2,862,583, increasing the total cost to $17,527,583. Meanwhile, the total funds available for the project is $15,339,000, leaving a shortfall of $2,188,583. Champlin explained that the process of reducing the construction costs has already begun. Although the newly built space for the Huot Center on Dewey Street was designed to be attached to the high school, he said that the cost could be reduced significantly by separating the two buildings by 21 feet without impairing the project. The cost of the mechanical systems atop the building as well as the fixtures and the fixtures for the science laboratories could also be reduced. Altogether, Champlin said that about $1,800,000 in savings have been identified. Furthermore, Champlin said that the project includes the least expansive and expensive of the two plans for the playing fields. So-called Plan B would move the field slightly towards the east by excavating part of the hill at the foot of Bobotas Field, creating additional parking for about 100 cars behind the high school, but leaving the steep section of the hill nearly intact. The cost of Plan B is $2,049,000. The preferred plan, Plan A, calls for radically altering the terrain east of the football field by removing the hill and creating two terraces for playing fields stretching from the rear of the school building to the far side of Bobotas Field. The first 350 feet between the school building and first terrace would be divided between a
parking lot with spaces for 140 vehicles and a green space of 35,000-square-feet. A berm would divide the parking area and green space from the first terrace, which would hold the football field. The cost of Plan A is $2,628,000, or $579,000 more than Plan B. In addition, both plans require bleachers and lighting, which together were not included in the base bid but instead were bid as alternates at $471,000. City Councilor Bob Hamel (Ward 5) said flatly “we should set a goal of plan A.” He suggested that as the committee refined the project “let’s see what it takes to get there.” According to the figures Champlin presented to the committee, including the science laboratories and Plan A for the playing fields, along with the bleachers and lighting, in the project would bring the total costs to $16,777,583, net of the $1.8-million in savings already identified. The available funds, discounting $550,000 in “community support” yet to be raised, amount to $14,789,000, leaving a deficit of almost $2-million to be met by a capital campaign. Alternatively, if the committee chooses the less expensive plan for the playing fields, the deficit would be approximately $1.4-million. Steve Beals, principal of Laconia High School, told the committee that the capital campaign would begin late next week or early the week after with an announcement of a $250,000 contribution toward the reconfiguration of the playing fields. More information about the capital campaign is posted on the School Department website.
ECOMONY from page 2 said that the economy is not creating jobs “as fast as we want” but vowed that it would improve. “We will come back stronger,” he said. “We do have better days ahead.” Alan Krueger, head of the president’s Council of Economic Advisers, pointed out that the country has added jobs for 27 months in a row, including 4.3 million jobs in the private sector. Underscoring the challenge for Obama with five months to go in the campaign, a May poll by The Associated Press and GfK, a research company, showed that 52 percent disapproved of Obama’s handling of the economy while 46 percent approved. Some financial analysts said that the dismal job figures put pressure on the Federal Reserve to take additional steps to help the economy, but it was not clear how much good the Fed could do beyond trying to inspire confidence. The central bank has already kept the short-term interest rate it controls at a record low of almost zero since the fall of 2008, during the financial crisis, and
pledged to keep it there through late 2014. It has undertaken two rounds of massive purchases of government bonds, starting in March 2009 and November 2010, to help drive long-term interest rates down and stimulate stock prices. Another program to lower long-term interest rates, known as Operation Twist, was announced last September and ends this month. But low interest rates, other analysts pointed out, are not the problem. An investor stampede into bonds on Friday drove the yield on the 10-year U.S. Treasury note as low as 1.44 percent, the lowest on record. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke testifies next week before a joint committee of Congress, and the Fed next meets June 19 and 20. Complicating the challenge for the economy, tax cuts passed under President George W. Bush will expire after Dec. 31, as will a cut in the Social Security payroll tax. More than $100 billion in automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs also kick in Jan. 1. Less money in consumers’ pockets next year and less spending by the government would be a significant drag on the economy.

FIRE from page one Gerry Perry said most of the resources were being focused on the northern and western ends of the fire. “The wind situation looks a whole lot better, but we’re still expecting that we’re going to be busy,” he said. Though crews were helped overnight with increased humidity levels, forecasters said there was a chance for thunderstorms and dry lightning over the Black Range that could spark more fires. Extended forecasts also called for more hot, dry weather. Gov. Susana Martinez viewed the fire from a New Mexico National Guard helicopter Thursday and saw the thick smoke shrouding some of the steep canyons that are inaccessible to firefighters. She described the terrain as “impossible,” saying there was no way for firefighters to directly attack the flames in the rugged areas of wilderness. “It’s going to keep going up,” she said of the acreage burned. “Be prepared for that.” Along the fire’s northern edge, Martinez spotted crews doing burnout operations designed to slow the erratic
blaze, which has surpassed last year’s Las Conchas fire as the largest ever in recorded state history. That fire charred 156,593 acres and threatened the Los Alamos National Laboratory, the nation’s premier nuclear facility. From the air, Martinez could see the blanket of smoke stretching for miles. She used words like “daunting” and “enormous,” fitting since fire managers said the blaze could smolder until the region gets significant rainfall during the summer monsoon season. So far, the fire has destroyed a dozen cabins and eight outbuildings. Perry said the fire is close to the community of Mogollon, but the threat is not imminent since firefighters have been working to protect the structures there by clearing debris and applying special fire-resistant wraps. It’s too early for the ecologists, soil scientists and hydrologists to get on the ground to start assessing the damage, but members of the incident management team have estimated that a majority of the fire has left behind moderate and minimal fire scars.
Dismal jobs report sends Dow into 275-point dive NEW YORK (AP) — Alarmed by an ominously weak U.S. jobs report, investors ran for safety Friday from new worries about a global slowdown, sending the Dow Jones industrial average to its biggest loss since November. The nearly 275-point dive wiped out the last of the index’s gains for the year. Across Wall Street, fearful investors snapped up safer investments such as bonds, dragging the yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note to a record low. Gold spiked $50 an ounce, and oil fell to its lowest since October. “The big worry now is that this economic slowdown is widening and accelerating,” said Sam Stovall, chief equity strategist at S&P Capital IQ, a market research firm. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index and Nasdaq composite index both fell more than 2 percent. The Nasdaq has dropped more than 10 percent since its peak — what traders call a market correction. And the S&P 500 is just a point above correction territory. American employers added just 69,000 jobs in May, the fewest in a year, and the unemployment rate increased to 8.2 percent from 8.1 percent. Economists had forecast a gain of 158,000 jobs. The report, considered the most important economic indicator each month, also said that hiring in March and April was considerably weaker than originally thought. Earlier data showed weak economic
conditions in Europe and Asia, too. Unemployment in the 17 countries that use the euro currency stayed at a record-high 11 percent in April, and unemployment spiked to almost 25 percent in Spain. There were signs that growth in China, which helped sustain the global economy through the recession, is slowing significantly. China’s manufacturing sector weakened in May, according to surveys released Friday. The Dow closed down 274.88 points, or 2.2 percent, at 12,118.57. The Dow is off 0.8 percent for the year; two months ago, it was up more than 8 percent for the year. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 32.29 points, or 2.5 percent, to 1,278.04. The Nasdaq dropped 79.86, or 2.8 percent, to 2,747.48. Both indexes are still up for the year — 1.6 percent for the S&P 500 and 5.5 percent for the Nasdaq. The yield on the benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasury note briefly fell to 1.44 percent, the lowest on record. It ended the day at 1.46 percent. Gold for August delivery climbed $57.90, nearly 4 percent, to $1,622.10 per ounce. “Everybody’s looking for a safe haven,” said Adam Patti, CEO of IndexIQ, an asset management firm. He’s skeptical of that strategy, believing the swing was driven by short-term traders “looking to flip in and out of things,” rather than long-term investors willing to ride out a few bumps in the market.

ZIMMERMAN from page one “Does your client get to sit there like a potted plant and lead the court down the primrose path? That’s the issue,” Lester said. “He can’t sit back and obtain the benefit of a lower bond based upon those material falsehoods.” The judge questioning Zimmerman’s truthfulness could undermine the defendant’s credibility if it is brought up at trial, which could happen, and may complicate how his defense presents him as a witness, said Orlando-area attorney Randy McCLean, who is a former prosecutor. Witness accounts of the rainy night Martin was shot are spotty. There is no video of the fight, though photos prosecutors have released showed Zimmerman with wounds to his face and the back of his head. His recollection of what happened is key. “The other key witness, unfortunately is deceased,” McClean said. “Basically, Zimmerman is going to be asking the jury to believe his version of the facts ... As the case stands now, his credibility is absolutely critical to the case.” The defense countered that Zimmerman and his wife never used the money for anything, which indicated “there was no deceit.” O’Mara said it wouldn’t be a problem to bring Zimmerman back into custody by the deadline. The judge said he would schedule a hearing after Zimmerman is back in custody so he could explain himself. Police in Sanford did not immediately arrest Zimmerman, citing Florida’s “stand your ground” law that gives wide latitude to use deadly force rather than retreat in a fight if people believe they are in danger of being killed or seriously injured. Zimmerman’s credibility with the judge would be important if O’Mara tries to get a judge without the jury to dismiss the charges based on the law, said Orlando defense attorney David Hill.
Buchholz pitches Red Sox past Toronto, 7-2 TORONTO (AP) — No ballpark in baseball has been kinder to Clay Buchholz than Toronto’s Rogers Centre. David Ortiz homered, Buchholz won his sixth straight start in Toronto and the Boston Red Sox beat the Blue Jays 7-2 Friday night, their fourth victory in five games. Buchholz (5-2) won for the first time in four starts, giving up two runs, both on solo homers, and six hits in a season-high eight innings. He walked two and struck out seven, also a season-high. “He’s been building to that, that’s for sure,” Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said. “Clay Buchholz was terrific tonight. Extra on his fastball, terrific changeup, changed his angle a little on his breaking ball, threw strikes, very competitive. I like that, he likes that and I expect we can get more of the same.” Buchholz is the first opposing pitcher to win six straight road starts against the Blue Jays. He has not lost in Toronto since July 17, 2009, and is 6-2 with a 1.72 ERA in eight career starts at Rogers Centre. Buchholz said he takes no pleasure in facing Toronto, calling them “dangerous,” and credited his confidence for all his strong showings in Canada. “Whenever I go out there and have a little bit of confidence running through the first two or three innings, it just builds to make you want to go back out there and make good pitches,” Buchholz said. Valentine said an improved changeup, something that came together for Buchholz three starts ago, has helped bring about the right-hander’s change in fortune. “I think it’s made all the difference in the world,” Valentine said.
Buchholz found the confidence he needed early in this one. After two straight errors put Blue Jays at first and second in the first, Buchholz battled back from 3-0 down to strike out Jose Bautista. “Tough mental at-bat there,” said Buchholz, who followed by getting Edwin Encarnacion to ground into a double play. The victory moved the Red Sox level with the Blue Jays at 27-25, tied for fourth in the AL East and three games behind first-place Tampa Bay. “The last few weeks we’ve really been picking it up and kind of grinding, playing the way we should be playing, and Buch set the tone,” Boston catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia said. Daniel Nava had three doubles and Adrian Gonzalez had three hits for the Red Sox, who have not lost consecutive games since May 8 and 9 at Kansas City. “Adrian needed a night like this, where he’s able to drive in the runs and get three hits, and we needed him to do that,” Valentine said. Valentine said Nava, who was promoted from the minor leagues on May 10, “looks like as good a hitter as you want.” “Every at bat he takes pitches that are balls and takes full swings at pitches that are strikes,” Valentine said. “A pretty good combination.” Scott Atchison finished in the ninth for the Red Sox. For the second straight game, the Blue Jays saw their starting pitcher hit on the lower leg by a comebacker. Two days after Brandon Morrow had to be helped off the field after being struck on the right leg, Henderson Alvarez was drilled on the left shin by a one-hopper off the bat of Mike Aviles to start the fifth.

You know how the limerick goes. “There once was a man from Nantucket…” Well, despite all the buckets and Pawtuckets involved, he also had a lot of money. He had to have, if he lived on Nantucket. I am down on the island right now trying to find him, take a few days off, and see what the real estate market is like here. I can tell you that the market is doing well on the island of Grey Ladies. It is a little early in the season and the island is not overrun with mainland tourists yet which makes it easy to get around and see things. There are beaches, great scenery, beautiful houses, and lots of shops and good restaurants… It’s always good to take a look and see how the markets are doing in other parts of the country. Nantucket is obviously an affluent vacation and second home area and if things are good here then one would think that a vacation destination and second home market like the Lakes Region would follow suit. According to the man from Nantucket (actually Atlantic East Nantucket Realty), for the first quarter of 2012 residential sales were up 32-percent from last year. Here in the Lakes region we were up 18-percent. The average residential sales price for the first quarter of 2012 was $1.2-million and the median price point was $825,000. Those numbers are down about 3-percent from last year. Our average sales price for the same period was only slightly lower at $272,576. Well, that may be quite a bit lower. Even though we sell some pretty high prices properties on the Winnipesaukee, it is hard to compete with Nantucket. And, maybe we don’t want to. Nantucket has a lot to offer, but the affordability here is, well, practically non-existent. The least expensive properties I found for sale was an inland studio condo unit (that’s one room you know) for $180,000 and it needs some work. I did find a
mid-island four bedroom condo unit for a first time buyer for $399,000. The average price for a vacant piece of land was $634,000. That’s a lot for some sand in the middle of the ocean and I would think might take some of the enjoyment out of it. The most expensive property for sale right now on the island is a 70-acre compound with a “sprawling main residence which embraces the magnificent views” for a mere $59-million. The real estate ads and websites don’t give you a lot of detail on the properties on the island. Nor do they put “for sale” signs out so you know that a property is for sale. It is all rather hush, hush yet in your face at the same time. One article I read on-line at JPFCO Nantucket Real Estate stated that the market is heating up on the island with two recently closed $7-million sales and a couple of more high end homes just going pending. High end sales here are leading the resurgence of the markets just as we are seeing in the Lakes Region. It further stated that “Buyers who can afford high-end properties typically can afford them for a reason — they make smart investments.” I think that applies equally as well to Lakes Region property — even the less expensive property. After all, we have some pretty awesome beaches, spectacular scenery, beautiful homes, and our own great shops and restaurants, too. And, you can’t ski on Nantucket! Now, where is that old man? Log on to my blog at www.lakesregionrealestatenews.com and leave me your thoughts on this report or the real estate market in general. You can also receive these reports by email.

DETROIT (AP) — Easier credit, hot new cars and falling gas prices kept Americans buying vehicles at a strong pace in May despite bad economic news. May sales totaled 1.3 million cars and trucks, up 26 percent from the same month a year earlier. It was the best May for the industry since 2008. The good results surprised some analysts, since car sales usually hew closely to the performance of the stock market and to consumer confidence numbers. In May, confidence was wobbly and the stock market had its worst month in two years. “We should have had a disastrous new vehicle sales month, but consumers are still interested in the new products,” said Jesse Toprak, vice president of market intelligence for the car buying site TrueCar.com. “This was an anomaly.” Toprak thinks June sales will stumble as people weigh
troubling headlines, like Friday’s report that U.S. unemployment rose for the first time in 11 months. He expects sales to pick up at the end of the year as the economy improves. But others don’t think the disappointing news will derail the industry’s recovery. “I don’t believe that the employment data in and of itself will have an impact,” said Ken Czubay, Ford’s U.S. sales chief. Czubay said dealer traffic was strong in May, particularly over Memorial Day weekend. Toyota led sales increases with an 87 percent rise from a year earlier, while Honda saw a 48-percent jump. In May 2011, both companies ran short of cars and trucks after the earthquake in Japan crippled their factories. But their showrooms are full again, and they’re rapidly gaining back the market share that they lost to competitors such as Hyundai and GM.

Homer, of 21 Upper Mile Point Drive, Meredith, passed away May 26, 2012, at LRGH Healthcare in Laconia. “Barney”, who was nicknamed as an infant by his brother Bundy, was born August 3, 1920 in Plymouth, NH, the youngest child of Arthur S. and Stella (Beattie) Homer. The family moved to Meredith where Barney graduated from Meredith High School in 1938. He married Adeline Pelczar in 1942 and they raised their four girls on Highland Street. During World War II Barney served in the Coast Guard as a radarman, traveling to the South Pacific aboard the USS Machias. After the War he returned to Meredith where he began his career as a lineman at the former White Mountain Power Company, eventually retiring as manager of the Meredith office of the NH Electric Co-operatiive. He served with the Meredith Volunteer Fire Department for many years, and was a past active member of the Laconia Lodge of Elks He and Adeline traveled extensively during his retirement, visiting Spain, England, Mexico, the Caribbean Islands, and exploring the US on a cross country tour.

He lovingly cared for Adeline during her long illness, and after her death in 2009 remained independent until 2011, when he moved to Meredith Bay Colony Club. Barney was an avid Patriots and Red Sox fan, especially when they were winning. Barney adored his four daughters and loved and supported his grandchildren and great-grandchildren unconditionally. When all else failed, they could
bring a smile to his face. He was incredibly honest in thoughts, speech, and action. He is survived by his daughters Pamela Swenson of Green Valley, Arizona; Leslie (Fred) Avery of New Hampton; Candace (Jerry) Thomas of Moultonborough, and Wendy (Allen) Ketchum of Laconia; grandchildren Stacey, Erica, Grant, Jason, Eric, Samantha, Justin, Sasha, Derek, Alicia, Holly, and Jillian; great-grandchildren Isabella, Jack, Natalie, Logan, Dylan, Jazmyn, Ryan, Madison, Sammy, Geoffrey, Joshua, Ava, Alexa, Grayson, Lila, Kayla, Hailey, and Charleigh; and great-great –granddaughter Piper.

by Darby Conley
By Holiday Mathis person is attracted to you. Your job is to figure out: Which is it? SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Don’t be too quick to decide with what or whom to become involved. If you get in too deep today, it may be difficult to back out gracefully. Instead of jumping in, just dip in a toe. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Beware: People who need attention may send you mixed signals. Who needs the confusion and drama? Deal with straight shooters who walk their talk. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have a way of bringing people down to earth in a good way. Dreams and ambitions are fun to talk about, but nothing comes to fruition without oldfashioned hard work. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Interesting situations are attracted to you. That’s right, without making the slightest effort, suddenly you’re in another fascinating arrangement. Your life is nonstop entertainment. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). This is no time to be hasty. You want a plan that’s as logical as it is creative. You’ll try out different theories before you make up your mind about which way to go. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 2). You’ll be part of a group of people that is building a better future for the world. This month, someone new will try to win you over with an effort that is both flattering and impressive. In July, you follow your bliss, and your bliss takes you to a different city. November is your chance for great publicity and earnings. Cancer and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 24, 38 and 18.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You were once an outsider, and now you’re on the inside. You may decide that being on the outside felt freer, or that being an insider has narrowed some of your options. It will be good to know both sides. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). People ask for things you’re not able or willing to give. This is wonderful, as it’s a reason to consider and enforce your personal boundaries. Having to do so makes you more confident. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). No one has to tell you about the power of words. You’ll play with language and plan what you’re going to say. The right combination of words will allow you to gain access to an exclusive environment, a secret society or a special club. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You probably won’t be in the mood, but you’ll continue to focus on being an allaround great person, motivated, kind and fun. The love you give others will unstick you from feeling stuck. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Some people take longer to grow up than others. And really, maturity can be overrated, so why not embrace your inner Peter Pan and keep the magic and adventure going for as long as possible? VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Adhering to basic social rules will keep your personal life smooth. For instance, don’t talk about people behind their backs, mind your own business and give quality attention to the people with whom you’re spending time. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The one who is kind to you may be a generally kind person who behaves the same way with just about everyone, or this

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Saturday, June 2, the 154th day of 2012. There are 212 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On June 2, 1953, Queen Elizabeth II was crowned in Westminster Abbey, 16 months after the death of her father, King George VI; it was the first such ceremony to be televised. On this date: In 1886, President Grover Cleveland, 49, married Frances Folsom, 21, in the Blue Room of the White House. (To date, Cleveland is the only president to marry in the executive mansion.) In 1897, Mark Twain, 61, was quoted by the New York Journal as saying from London that “the report of my death was an exaggeration.” In 1924, Congress passed a measure that was then signed by President Calvin Coolidge guaranteeing full American citizenship for all Native Americans born within U.S. territorial limits. In 1941, baseball’s “Iron Horse,” Lou Gehrig, died in New York of a degenerative disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; he was 37. The chief justice of the United States, Charles Evans Hughes, announced his retirement effective July 1, 1941. In 1961, during a state visit to France, President John F. Kennedy, noting the warm reception his wife was receiving, jocularly described himself as “the man who accompanied Jacqueline Kennedy to Paris, and I have enjoyed it.” In 1966, the U.S. space probe Surveyor 1 landed on the moon and began transmitting detailed photographs of the lunar surface. In 1979, Pope John Paul II arrived in his native Poland on the first visit by a pope to a Communist country. In 1986, for the first time, the public could watch the proceedings of the U.S. Senate on television as a six-week experiment began. In 1997, Timothy McVeigh was convicted of murder and conspiracy in the Oklahoma City bombing. (He was executed in June 2001.) In 2004, the syndicated TV game show “Jeopardy!” began airing contestant Ken Jennings’ 74-game winning streak. One year ago: Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney announced his bid for the Republican presidential nomination during an appearance in New Hampshire. Today’s Birthdays: Actor Milo O’Shea is 87. Actress-singer Sally Kellerman is 75. Actor Ron Ely is 74. Actor Stacy Keach is 71. Rock musician Charlie Watts is 71. Singer William Guest (Gladys Knight & The Pips) is 71. Actor Charles Haid is 69. Composer Marvin Hamlisch is 68.

Twenty-six women and men were pinned in a ritual started by Florence Nightingale in the early 1900’s. “LRCC’s Nursing Program is very intense, requiring many hours of studying and typing papers but in the end the effort is well worth it,” says Hucksoll who also served as Wellness Club Vice President in the 2011-2012 academic year. Twenty of the twenty-six LRCC Nursing graduates attended a week-long Nursing Board Review held at St. Anselm’s College in Manchester preparing for the State Nursing Board Exam which will be offered in June.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, June 2, 2012— Page 19
Dear Annie: My husband and I have five adult children between us, all making a good living. Some of our children expect us to pay their airfare to come visit us, in addition to picking them up at the airport, being their taxi service so they can go out drinking at night and letting them use our car. At no time does anyone put gas in the car or even treat us to a cheap breakfast. During a recent visit, we made reservations for dinner with one son, his girlfriend, their daughter (who lives nearby) and the daughter’s boyfriend. That morning, my husband drove them to the beach (10 miles away). They then called to say they ate a late lunch and asked that we push back the reservation and that my husband pick them up from the daughter’s house and bring them home to change. It seems the daughter didn’t want to drive the 10 miles to our house. I adamantly said no to my 74-year-old husband. These “kids” are so self-absorbed that they think nothing of forcing us to accommodate their schedules with no thought to ours. I have told my husband that from now on, the kids must rent their own car when visiting. I’m tired of being their private chauffeur. Am I overreacting? -- Selfish Guests No Longer Welcome Dear Guests: Of course not. If your children are old enough to have kids of their own, they should not need to be driven around by their parents. But we recommend a tactful approach. For the next visit, simply say, “We wish we could pick you up at the airport, but it won’t be possible. We suggest you rent a car so you can have your independence.” You also can mention how nice it would be if they treated their folks to a meal once in a while to thank them for their hospitality. Dear Annie: I am a divorced woman in my 50s and the mother of two beautiful daughters. When they were born, we chose to pass on my first name to both girls as a middle name.
It’s been a family tradition for the past four generations. Recently, my eldest daughter informed me that she legally replaced her middle name with her maiden name. I was stunned that the name I passed on to her with pride was cut out entirely and forever. We are on good terms, and I don’t believe she intended to hurt me. And I don’t have a problem with her choosing her father’s surname. Normally, I’m pretty laid back, but this one stings. I’d like to ask why she made this choice, but I’m afraid it might make her think I’m too sensitive and she won’t share future decisions with me. I keep hoping there is a sensible, rational reason that would relieve some of the hurt. Perhaps if I get it out in the open, I can let it go. Any thoughts? -- NameDropped Dear Name-Dropped: It’s OK to ask, as long as you don’t get teary-eyed and make her feel guilty. Or perhaps she confided her reasons to her sister and you would feel more comfortable asking your younger child. But be prepared to accept with equanimity an answer you may not like. Dear Annie: “Wondering” wanted to know how to ask his parents about his inheritance so he could plan his retirement accordingly. Recently, our son demanded his share of his “inheritance.” The ramifications of this have been heartbreaking. Because of money already given to him, we made the difficult decision to exclude him from any further inheritance at our death. He received a paid-in-full statement that said, “This is your share that you demanded via an attorney, notarized and recorded through the courts.” So, “Wondering,” let sleeping dogs lie. You will get yours (if anything is left) at your parents’ death. Prepare and plan for your future yourself. -- Sadder and Wiser

We anticipate another sold out summer and couldn’t be happier.” He says that an outstanding staff has been brought aboard for the summer and there will be some new faces combined with the seasoned veterans.

one students are introduced to sailing and safety in and around sailboats. Beginning sailors learn to rig, sail, and steer the boat. Also, for the third year, the program will offer half day lessons to 7 year olds for an introduction to sailing. New this year is the level three non-racing course. This will focus on greater knowledge of skills such as better understanding of wind and weather, how to navigate a course, supplies needed for a sail, how to read a map, how to anchor and much more about sailing. For those students who wish to be introduced to sailboat racing or who would like to sharpen their current racing skills, the LWSA offers a one-week full day racing course open to all students, ages 8-16, who have successfully completed the Level One class or have equivalent experience. This class is designed to cover all aspects of sailboat racing, and includes classroom instruction, on-the-water instruction, drills, and actual races. These closely-coached classes cover starting, buoy rounding, boat speed, tactics, strategy, and the rules of racing. More advanced students will be coached in more advanced go-fast and tactical skills. Participants will have the opportunity to compete in youth regattas all around New England. “We’ve also had special guests such as former Boston University Sailing Coach Ron Sandstrom, who has worked with the racing students. Due to the paramount interest in youth sailboat racing opportunities, the School offers a Tuesday night Youth Racing Club open to any sailor who can demonstrate adequate basic boat-handling skills. Over the years, many students have found sailboat racing to be challenging, fun, and exciting. The LWSA’s Youth Racing Club introduces young sailors to the sport and helps the more experienced ones sharpen their skills. Activities include weekly races and clinics on Tuesday evenings, trips to regattas, and the opportunity to crew on a boat in the Lake’s major racing fleet. It’s also the largest J80 racing fleet in the United States. Adult sailing is also available on Meredith Bay. This program is in its third year and continues to excel. “We were looking for ways to challenge our adults and extend learning opportunities and we decided to offer a level two course” stated Egan. Classes are offered Monday and Wednesday from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. or from 5-8 p.m. with a maximum of three participants to each J22 boat. For more information on the LWSA Sailing School, please visit www.lwsa.org, email sailing-school@lwsa. org, or call 603-589-1177. Scholarships are available. Major sponsors of the LWSA Sailing School include Fay’s Boat Yard, Inc. and Merrill Fay, Dave’s Motorboat Shop, Winnipesaukee Yacht Club, Members of J80 Fleet #1, and generous donors and volunteers.

Rondo & Celtics close the gap with Miami to 2-1 with 101-91 victory BOSTON (AP) — Kevin Garnett had 24 points and 11 rebounds and Rajon Rondo scored 21 points with 10 assists to lead the Boston Celtics to a 101-91 victory over the Heat in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals on Friday night, cutting Miami’s lead in the series to 2-1. Game 4 is Sunday night in Boston. Paul Pierce scored 23 points for Boston. LeBron James scored 34 points, but the NBA MVP and the rest of the Heat went cold during a 7-minute stretch at the end of the first quarter and the beginning of the second, when Boston outscored them
15-0 to turn a six-point deficit into a nine-point lead. James scored 16 points in the first quarter but had just four points with one rebound and one assist in the fourth, when Miami cut a 24-point deficit to eight. Mike Miller hit consecutive 3-pointers during an 11-0 run that cut the deficit to 95-87. Miami still trailed by eight points, with the ball, when Dwyane Wade missed and Ray Allen grabbed the rebound, sending Rondo on a fast break that made it a 99-89 with 99 seconds to play. James threw the ball away underneath, then missed a 3-point attempt the next time down — one of only four shots
he took in the fourth quarter. Pierce found Garnett for a long jumper at the other end, and the teams began emptying their benches. Coming off his 44-point effort in the Game 2 loss in Miami, in which he played every second of regulation and overtime, Rondo was 9 for 16 from the field and grabbed six rebounds. Marquis Daniels led the Boston bench with nine points and five rebounds in 18 minutes. Wade scored 18 points and Mario Chalmers had 14 points and six assists for Miami. Shane Battier was scoreless, missing all six shots, and Ronny Turiaf had three points while tangling with Garnett under the basket for much of the game. The Celtics center, who has appeared rejuvenated during these playoffs at the age of 36, got called for another technical foul for a violent elbow but otherwise seemed to be enjoying himself. While waiting to inbound the ball in the second quarter, he high-fived a young child sitting courtside in a No. 5 Celtics jersey. At the other end, after falling to the court after his shot, he did a series of pushups to the crowd’s amusement. Wade was 9 for 20 from the field and did not shoot a free throw in the game. James, who shot 24 free throws in Game 2, making 18, was 1 for 5 from the line. James hit seven of his first nine shots, before making one of the next six. That helped Boston score the last eight points of the first quarter and the first seven of the second to turn six-point deficit into a nine-point lead. Much of it came with Keyon Dooling and Daniels on the court for Boston.
