GOP -dominated House committee holds AG Holder in contempt over ‘fast & furious’ WASHINGTON (AP) — Setting up a potential constitutional confrontation, a Republican-controlled House panel voted Wednesday to cite Attorney General Eric Holder for contempt of Congress, just hours after President Barack Obama invoked executive privilege — for the first time — to withhold documents demanded by the committee. The party-line vote was 23-17 following hours of caustic debate. The controversy goes next to the full House, where Republican Speaker John Boehner said there would be a vote next week unless there was some resolution in the meantime. Committee Chairman Darrell Issa of California said that “more than eight
months after a subpoena” for the documents — which concern how the Justice Department learned there were problems with an Arizona probe of gun-running into Mexico — Obama’s “untimely assertion” of executive privilege was no reason to delay the contempt vote. No, it was just political, said Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the committee’s ranking Democrat. He called the vote “an extreme, virtually unprecedented action based on election-year politics rather than fact.” The last Cabinet member to be cited by a congressional committee for contempt was Attorney General Janet Reno in President Bill Clinton’s administration. That was never brought to a follow-up vote in the full House.
Technically, if the full House approves the Holder contempt citation, there could be a federal criminal case against him, but history strongly suggests the matter won’t get that far. Whether Congress could force the Justice Department to turn over the documents is a basic question. In the Watergate case, the Supreme Court ordered President Richard Nixon to turn over taped conversations to a criminal prosecutor. But in the Nixon case, the justices also found a constitutional basis for claims of executive privilege, leaving the door open for presidents to cite it in future clashes with Congress. In the administration’s claim of executive see CONTEMPT page 12
BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) — The defense in Jerry Sandusky’s child sex abuse trial rested on its third day Wednesday without calling the former Penn State assistant coach to dispute charges that he molested boys at his home and on campus over more than a decade. Closing arguments were set for Thursday in the case that led to the dismissal of Hall of Fame football coach Joe Paterno, the ouster of the university president and a re-examination of college administra-
tors’ role in reporting abuse charges. The defense called only four new witnesses Wednesday, including a physician who they used to try and poke holes in the story of a Penn State coaching assistant who testified that he saw Sandusky sexually assault a boy in the campus showers more than a decade ago. The defense’s case has consisted of character witnesses who defended Sandusky’s reputation, a psychologist who said Sandusky had a personality disorder and the
ex-coach’s wife, who said she did not see her husband do anything inappropriate with the accusers. His lawyers showed that an investigator had shared information with an accuser about other alleged victims’ stories and repeatedly suggested that accusers have financial motivations for their claims. Sandusky was only heard from via a November interview with NBC’s Bob Costas, saying he probably shouldn’t have see SANDUSKY page 14

CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire Gov. John Lynch says a bill intended to strengthen the state’s voter registration process would only lead to confusion and could harm the ability of citizens to participate fully in democracy. Lynch on Wednesday vetoed a bill that would require people registering to vote to sign a statement saying that they declare New Hampshire as their domicile and are subject to state laws, including laws requiring drivers to register their vehicles. He says the bill is confusing because it uses the terms “domicile” and “resident” interchangeably even though they have different legal meanings. He says the motor vehicle provision is overly broad and would require retirees and young people who attend college in the state to register a car and apply for a license in order to vote.

Bottom line on immigration is what’s good for our country In helping young illegal immigrants stay in the country, President Obama did the right thing for the wrong reason and in a strange context. Obama decreed that illegal immigrants who came here as children could stay without fear of deportation, if the following conditions are met: They’ve been in the country for at least five years. They’re in school or high-school graduates, or have served in the military. They are under 30 and have committed no crimes. More than 1 million people may qualify. This was the beating heart of the Dream Act, stopped in 2010 by Senate Republicans. The major difference is that Obama is not creating an amnesty. He’s letting these young people stay, study and work in the United States without harassment for periods of two years, which can be renewed. The beneficiaries are quite blameless. Their parents brought them to America as children. Having grown up here, these kids are for all practical purposes American. When it comes time for a real amnesty, these are the sort of young people we would put first in line. And if America had a normal immigration program, many in this group would have been welcomed through the front door. Meanwhile, Obama’s executive action covers only those who have obtained or are getting a basic education and have been law-abiding. Thus, it excludes illegal immigrants who could pose a burden on our society (even if they arrived at age 2). Obama clearly chose the timing for political reasons. The obvious objective is to woo Latino voters, who will play key roles in several swing states this November. Actually, polls show most Hispanics not overly supportive of open-border policies that lead to depressed wages. But they are understandably aggravated at seeing the occasional young person pulled out of the neighborhood and sent to a country that he or she would consider foreign. The context for Obama’s move is quite interesting. Obama is the first president in a long time to have
taken the immigration laws seriously. He’s been going after employers who hire undocumented workers. Deportations during his administration have exceeded 1-million, the most since 1950. His active enforcement of the immigration laws has made him suspect among some Hispanic activists while winning scant praise from right-wingers. So this modest move toward immigration reform makes political sense. But do we want an immigration program that changes as a function of the next election? No. We should want a panel of experts determining our labor needs on an annual basis. How many people and what skills does our economy require? And we should want these experts to recognize that unskilled workers belong to the same labor market that assures good pay for scarce biochemists. No iron law of the universe forbids letting their wages rise along with demand for their services. During the recent Republican candidates’ debates, some of the talk on immigration approached ugly. All the contenders, Mitt Romney included, vowed to oppose even the modestly conceived Dream Act. Now the assumed nominee, Romney is modulating his views a bit, calling Obama’s move a block to a bipartisan solution rather than a reward for lawbreaking. A reasonable bipartisan solution would create a tight system for enforcing the laws against hiring illegal workers — one that would include biometric identification (such as scans of the eye’s iris), which can’t be counterfeited. It would sponsor a last amnesty to put most illegal immigrants “on the path to citizenship.” And it would include the aforementioned panel to monitor the program with an eye toward what’s good for the country. Say that again: What’s good for the country. (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.)
Burned out building makes people sad to go to the Weirs anymore To the editor, What person in their right mind would want to leave a buried out building standing. Some kid could wander in there and get hurt of killed if something falls on them. The place looks terrible! It sure isn’t a tourist attraction. The money that has been spent for lawyers could have built a new place by now. Its very selfish to leave that place standing its a constant reminder to everyone who has
lost someone in a fire. They may as well put a grave stone there, too! It makes people sad to go to the Weirs anymore. They are driving people away. Not the others they are taking to court: people with money don’t care how they hurt other people. Once day the tables may turn: Then we can enjoy the Weirs again. Hopefully. Diana Field Franklin
LETTERS Ingrates are free to enjoy all advantages of USA without ‘pledge’ To the editor, At a bar last night, my friend Bill and I overheard a secret conversation. A man at the next table told his friend that the “Under God” enforcement arm, sort of a SWAT team unit, of the “Pledge of Allegiance” police have become aware of Professor Sandy’s position on the Pledge of Allegiance. They are seriously considering whether to entrap him into failing to recite the pledge fully or if he will violate the strict pledge laws on his own. Word has come down that the group of “mostly rich white men who rule this country,” are considering the appropriate punishment for Professor Sandy or others who neglect to utter the full official text of the Pledge of Allegiance. This crack police unit, made up of former UFC Champions, has apparently inflicted cruel punishments on the many thousands that it has picked up for violating this nation’s strict pledge laws. And, going one step further, they have started using tools from the Spanish Inquisition to cure people who have substituted compliance with their own conscience ahead of compliance with the state. The responsibility of the pledge and conscience police is an important one. It is carefully overseen by the group, of “mostly rich white men who rule this country,” under the leadership of a rich black president, a black chief law enforcement officer, numerous women, some very rich, including the Secretaries of State, Labor, Health and Human Services, and Homeland Security, and heads of the SBA, EPA, and a few orientals, a few Hispanics, and, representing the rich white IQ deficient men, the vice president and the Senate majority leader. What? Bill just called to say that the story is totally false. Unbelievable!
Despite the guy’s claim that the information came from an unimpeachable source, from his sister who heard it from her boyfriend who heard it from one of his drinking buddies. Bill says the truth is that there are no “Pledge of Allegiance” or conscience police, and he can find no records of anyone who has been prosecuted for not saying the Pledge of Allegiance, even if they omit the words, “Under God”. Bill tells me that there has even been a group called “Occupy” which gathered in unruly mobs without permits, disrupted commerce, destroyed public and private property, defecated on and burned American flags, made anti-American statements, taunted police, intimidated and threatened private citizens, and left tons of trash in their wake. Not only were these people not prosecuted, but they were praised by many of our nation’s leaders, President Obama, Majority Leader Reid, former House Speaker Pelosi and other liberals. Bill says that ingrates can enjoy all the advantages of living in this country, provided by the blood and sweat of others, without pledging allegiance to this country. That ingrates have the opportunity to earn a living, to travel, to live in peace as they want, to say what they want, to get food and shelter and healthcare if they cannot provide for themselves, to gather and advocate what they want, even for forms of government which, every time they have been tried, deny these same opportunities to their citizens, and some ingrates even accept payments from governments in the country to which they refuse to pledge allegiance. Wow! What a great country! Don Ewing Meredith
Ovide Lamontagne is best candidate for governor we could have To the editor, Once again I am bothering you with my opinion. As you know I have been involved with G.O.P. (Republican) politics for many years. I have had several opportunities to converse with Ovide Lamontagne, I will not bother you with his record or
that during the campaign. I just want to tell you that in my opinion Ovide is a solid conservative and a man of good character, honesty and sincerity. He is in my opinion the best candidate for governor that we can have. I will vote for him and I urge you to do the same. Thomas Rice

LETTERS Citizens in many states are objecting to wireless smart meters To the editor, Martin Luther King once said “Silence is Betrayal”. I welcome a good, strong, healthy debate because it brings out the truth and the facts! As far as “cherry picking the Internet”, the only picking I do is when my cherry tomatoes are ripe, and I pick from my garden! I do not write to scare, frighten, confuse, or mislead, I write to inform an intelligent population and if they choose, the Internet is available to everyone. A quote from Mr. Anderson: “These smart meters can only record electric usage, collecting the same type of information that the old analog meters have gathered since the co-op was founded in 1939.” The difference is the analog is hard wired and smart meters are wireless. The analog meter does not emit radiation, the smart meter sends radiation into your home, penetrating the body. A single wireless smart meter exceeds the biological safety exposure limits and therefore causes abnormal changes in human cells. Multiple meters on apartment buildings potentially could be more dangerous with higher levels of radiation. Another fact Mr. Anderson ignored is pricing of electrical use related to the term “Time of Use” (TOU). As I understand these terms, peak time will be during the day and off peak times will be at night. The costs will be higher during peak time. When an electric facility buys electricity, day rates are higher then night rates. The utilities purchase energy on the market, in numbers sufficient to ensure there’s enough power for everyone during such peak hours. At night, these plants often are underutilized as power demands dwindle. Every hour a power plant sits idle is money wasted. Hence, there is a real incentive for the utilities to find ways to use their plants more efficiently, and save money by building fewer of them. Smart meters, and the incentives they offer consumers to spread out their electricity usage across 24 hours, offer utilities a great way to do this, by adjusting rates as high
during the day and low at night, in order to change people’s behavior and interfere in the lives of their consumers. NHEC is interested in changing members’ behavior in order to reduce demand for electricity at no savings to its members, but will benefit the NHEC. Restricting daytime hours to peak time pricing may be difficult if not impossible for most of our consumers. This is discriminatory against the people with a home business,and small business owners, both of which are a huge part of our N.H. economy. This policy also discriminates against families with children, low income families, the elderly, those with disabilities, and day-care centers. Another fact not addressed by Mr. Anderson is that citizens in many states are objecting to the wireless smart meter. Consumer objections include issues of health effects, safety, privacy, and affordability. Old wiring in homes can cause fires. Short circuit interference can cause damage and burn out appliances. A statement by Mr. Anderson “The meters being installed by NHEC meet all federal safety standards.” The meters being installed by the co-op do not meet federal electric codes because they are not UL certified. There are those who are concerned about the effect these wireless meters will have on our tourist population and real estate. A inn-keeper stated that not having a smart meter would be beneficial for business because people do not want to be exposed to radiation! Properties with a smart meter will lose their value due to growing stigma against Smart Meters. Another very important fact not addressed by Mr. Anderson is the Federal Energy Policy of 2005 which does not mandate the wireless Smart Meters and only states that consumers may be offered a smart meter with installation upon request. And last, our constitutional rights are being trampled on by taking away our 4th amendment rights as set forth in our great Constitution. Rosemary Landry Meredith
Don’t take word of old factory worker with poor grammar, look it up To the editor, Last week Tim Sullivan wrote that my grammar is poor and reflects on my credibility. Well, as an old factory worker, I admit my spelling is terrible and grammar is poor but know something, Tim? Writing is not about either of those things. It’s about expressing abstract thoughts to other people. Your focusing on such things rather then the ideas they convey risks you sounding like an erudite, elites snob, which I’m sure your not. Tim and I have a number of things we disagree on, such as green energy. Tim says he is willing to pay more for it because it’s healthier. I’m not because I question the premise of that thinking. It does take energy to produce solar cells, and wind turbines and that energy still largely comes from conventional sources. Add to that the poor efficiency ratings of those technology’s
and it looses it’s attractiveness for me. It’s a cost vs. reward issue. I’ve been waiting since the 1973 oil embargo for the promised “breakthroughs” on these things and as far as I can see we’ll be waiting another 39 years or longer, so please Tim, give me a break. Now for the Green lovers, let me point you toward a clean, renewable energy source that actually works, plasma generators. They have been up and running efficiently for years but you never hear Obama or any of the “green” crowd talking about them. These things take in trash, rubbish, toxic waste, release nothing to the environment, and generate a third more electricity then they use. Don’t take my word for it, I’m just an old factory worker with poor grammar, look it up for yourselves. Steve Earle Hill

LETTERS Your local Visiting Nurses provides care for residents & visitors To the editor, Welcome to the Lakes Region. You couldn’t get here fast enough! School is out and the kids were driving you crazy! You learned Bike Week – 2012 was over and you said: “Now it’s my turn”. Your car and boat trailer told it all as you sped through the “Easy Pass” lane in Hooksett and went right passed the rest area. No doubt about it... no time for “pit stops”... you were on a non-stop trip to the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. Did you forget anything? Sand pails, fishing equipment, canoe paddles and water skis are in the boat. Bathing suits, flip-flops, beach towels and even some rainy day games made the trip. You didn’t have to remember the electronics as your pre-teens packed those first and your teen-age daughter never puts down her iPhone anyway. No doubt about it... the family is on vacation! After a quick stop for groceries you pull into “The Camp”, that beloved hide-away just far enough away from job, school and uninvited guests. The car doors fly open; the kids scatter; and you say to your self “does it get any better than this”? Your hopes are high for a wonderful summer. But are you really prepared for every eventuality? Will everyone be healthy and safe this summer? Have you made the most important preparations? When last did you check your first aid
supplies? Mice love gauze pads! Did that bottle of antiseptic freeze over the winter? Fourth of July fireworks are always a lot more fun with a can of bug spray nearby. Remember what your pediatrician said about ultraviolet rays. Is that tube of sunscreen full or empty? You’re a good parent so you didn’t forget the family’s prescriptions but what about that one-a-day aspirin your cardiologist recommended? Are you prepared for the unthinkable... the swimming accident, your father’s chest pains and the errant skyrocket? Where is the nearest doctor? nurse? hospital? And how do I get there? Did you ever think of asking the campers around you? Medical professionals may be a lot nearer than you think and it is always best to know where they are before you need them. This is particularly important if your camp is on one of our islands accessible only by boat! Whose CPR certified? It may be the kid next door. Have a wonderful summer... relax... enjoy.... and above all BE SAFE!

13 motorcyclists prevented boy on a bike from crossing street To the editor, I realize that last week was Motorcycle Week and I have nothing against motorcyclists as I know and am friends with many people who ride motorcycles. I was very upset though about an incident that happened on Saturday, June 16. I was in Laconia on the road next to the Landmark Inn waiting for the light to turn green and I looked diagonally across the street and saw a teenage boy with a bicycle waiting to cross in the crosswalk. When the pedestrian light came on the boy started to step off the curb with his bicycle and along came 13
motorcyclists (and I know that there were 13 because I counted) who made the right turn on red while the pedestrian light was on and a couple motorcyclists almost hit the boy. To stay safe he had to kind of do a leap backwards and by the time the motorcyclists had turned the corner the light had turned back to “do not walk” and the boy had to push the pedestrian button again and wait for it to change back to the walk signal. I just hope that he was finally able to make it across the street safely. Kerry Lee Bergeron Belmont
I pledge to stand & if need be die for our freedom and country To the editor, I am responding to Leo R. Sandy: do you consider people, who don’t respect or pledge loyalty to the flag of the United States of America, as good examples to our young people? If selectman Preston is a man after you own heart, then God pity you. Leo you are not a God; only God himself, can care for our earth, sea, air, etc. I am free because of God’s grace, and I am proud of our flag, and that we can thank God, brave men and
women, died to keep up free, just as God’s son, died to save us, and no one is free any other way. Remember Leo, Satan is called the God of this world when you see the hell, all over the world can you believe, we need a savior and we have a savior Jesus Christ. I pledge to stand, protest, and if need be die, for our freedom and country. God Bless the U.S.A. William “Liam” McCoy Belmont
Why do readers need to be informed of Veverka’s opinion of others? To the editor, On June 19, The Daily Sun saw fit to publish a letter from frequent correspondent James Veverka of Tilton that consisted of his opinion that certain other frequent letter writers are Neanderthals whose letters equate with “loud mouth breathing ... and the sound of scraping claws” to
Veverka. When space permits, kindly advise what purpose was served by the publication of such an otherwise content-less missive. Or why readers of The Daily Sun need to be informed of Veverka’s opinion of others. Bill Lamb Meredith

LETTERS Call me a liberal progressive central planner all you like; I am To the editor, Russ Wiles seems to think he is criticizing people when he uses the terms “central planners”, liberals, progressives, and statists. The fact is, like millions, I am a proud progressive. Even when I went through my naive economic libertarian phase about 20 years ago, I was still socially liberal and thought to be otherwise was backwards and against the principles of liberty. Mr. Wiles is poorly informed in constitutional matters. The United States Constitution is the most successful central plan in modern history. If one takes a careful look at Articles I, II, and III, we see a tremendous amount of power being shifted from the states to a central government. Treaties, national defense, borders, immigration, interstate commerce and even militias are under the authority of the federal government. Then in Article VI, we see what is known as the Supremacy Clause. You will never hear the righties cite it because it is the primary reason why they lose states rights issues in the courts. The supremacy clause states: “This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding”. While the righties try desperately to distract people with the 10th Amendment, they still can’t overcome the fact that the authority of the federal gov-
ernment is supreme over all the states in regards to their constitutions, laws, and court holdings. The Constitution makes that clear but conservative radicals refuse to admit it. The letters from the tea party types remind me much of the anti-federalist arguments against the constitution during the states’ ratification process. Big government! Its the end of the world! Except for their demand for a Bill of Rights, the antifederalists were wrong and they lost. Today’s anti-federalists are still fighting; they don’t know they lost the states rights fight many times on a constitutional level. Then we have Amendment 14, which many on the far right would like to erase. The American Taliban especially dislikes it because they can’t use states’ rights to attack the equality of women and the LGBT community. The equal protection clause guarantees the liberties of the federal Constitution at the state level. Because states were such reprobates when it came to liberty and equality, the nation had to pass an amendment extending the federal guarantees of liberties and equality to the states. The Equal Protection Amendment states: “No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” So when the radical right calls me a liberal progressive central planner, I say “thanks, you have a nice day, too!”.

Accounts from scriptures supported by archaeological evidence To the editor, In response to James Veverka’s letter of June 14, “In the beginning...” Jim you are a scoffer. You do not know the power of God, nor His loving kindness, though you are a recipient of it every day. Nor do you recognize the terrible consequences of sin, or the trustworthiness of the word of God. For your sake I would not even write a response. Not that I don’t care about you, but you will only scoff at anything I say. I will leave you for God Himself to prove Himself to you. Yet for the readers that they may know that what you wrote is merely scoffing and not evidence against the truthfulness of the scriptures, for these I write. In his letter, Jim quotes Seneca and goes on to attack the credibility on the Gospels. The Gospels were written by eye witnesses, in the case of Luke by one who interviewed eye witnesses. In this way they differ from the claims of the other religions that Jim quotes. Matthew, Mark, and John in all likelihood were written before 70 A.D. The Gospel of John probably between 69 A.D. and 90 A.D. In the shear volume of the number of ancient manuscripts of the New testament that have survived is in the thousands no other ancient text comes close. The amount of time between the the writing of the original manuscripts and the earliest copies we have that have survived is
go this is exceptional. In these ways the New Testament is unique among ancient texts. To quote Christian apologist John Warwick Montgomery, “to be skeptical of the resultant text of the New Testament books is to allow all of classical antiquity to slip into obscurity for no documents of the ancient period are as well attested bibliographically as the New Testament.” It seems that the New Testament is as trustworthy of an accounting as could come to us from antiquity. I would recommend that anyone who is interested check out Josh McDowell’s book, “Evidence that Demands a Verdict”. Free downloads are available on line. He catalogs a lot of helpful information in this vein. Regarding Jim’s reference to accounts from mythology and other religions: A successful life is secured by finding the genuine. All friends are not the same it is a wise man or woman who knows who his true friends are. When you’re buying a car you look for one that will be dependable and that will also fit your budget. If you’re not careful you can end up with a lemon. When you are buying jewelry you want to know if the necklace is real gold, if the gemstone is genuine. If you don’t find out these things you could pay a lot for something worth little. So it is with religion;all accounts from antiquity are not equal, nor are all religions see next page

State board agrees Elm St. School not really ‘in need of improvement’ BY ROGER AMSDEN FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — Elm Street Elementary School was removed from the state’s list of Schools in Need of Improvement after school officials made a presentation before the State Board of Education Wednesday in support of its contention that all of the students at the school are making adequate yearly progress toward defined goals. The school had been identified as in need of improvement two years ago and was in danger of having to take radical steps to show that it was improving according to Superintendent of Schools Bob Champlin, who said that the school is actually high
performing and has shown steady improvement under the leadership of Principal Eric Johnson. The only category in which the school failed to make its target in the NECAP standardized tests administered last October was for students with educational disabilities and school officials argued successfully that other test scores such as NWEA, AIMSweb and formative assessments confirmed that the all students were making progress. Champlin noted that the Acceptable Yearly Progress Review Team agreed
with the elements of the school’s appeal and that citing the school as ‘’in need of restructuring’’ given its improvement history sends ‘’a confusing and inaccurate picture to all associated with the significant and continuous improvements achieved.’’ Elm Street School is now one of only 24-percent of the schools in the state which are not subject to sanctions for failure to meet adequate yearly progress requirements. Champlin said the information will be shared with the City Council at its next meeting.

Bike Week thought to be alive & well; it’s just different than it used to be BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — The 89th running of Laconia Motorcycle Week was marked by fine weather, orderly crowds, relatively freeflowing traffic and brisk business, marred only by one fatal motorcycle accident and a still unsolved stabbing. “Weather is king,” said Charlie St. Clair, executive director of the Laconia Motorcycle Week Association, which promotes the event. “People can see the forecast in the palm of their hand and with good weather predicted many from Massachusetts, Connecticut and New York decided to come to the rally.” Apart from showers on Wednesday night, the sun shone every day while temperatures ranged between 72 degrees and 79 degrees throughout the week. Fire Chief Ken Erickson noted that this year the city licensed premises for the sale of alcohol with a total capacity of almost 15,000, nearly a third more than in 2009 as owners of beer tents have expanded their capacity and new licensed premises have opened, like the M/S Mount Washington. However, Police Chief Chris Adams said that officers took only 58 intoxicated people into protective custody, adding that in 1998, on just one night 174 drunks were arrested at the Weirs alone. Likewise, Dan Ward, superintendent of the Belknap County Department of Corrections, reported that intoxicated or impaired individuals represented 72 of the 99 individuals detained during the rally, which was comparable to the 70 in 2010 and 62 in 2011. Of the 72 detainees, 58 were men and 14 were women ranging in age from 19 to 69 with blood alcohol content between 0.07 and 0.344. Slightly more than half were detained on the closing days of the rally, between midnight on Friday and Sunday afternoon. “Alcohol is still the major problem,” Adams said, “but nothing like what it used to be.” “The crowd is definitely older,” Erickson observed, “and more mature and responsible. The rapidity of

the transition over the last five years or even the last two is absolutely stunning.” He said that in the past “our ambulances ran non-stop, tow trucks were always removing vehicle illegally parked and the police were shuttling vans between the Weirs and the county jail.” This year, he continued, Fire Department personnel were not
as busy, but a greater proportion of the calls they answered were significant. Adams said that apart from the protective custody cases his department made 50 arrests during the nine days of Motorcycle Week, many of them downtown and few associated with the rally. see next page

Media’s fixation with wanting to keep score leads to numbers being ‘thrown out there’ LACONIA — Although there is no known way of counting or estimating, during and after Motorcycle Week some news organizations reported that the rally drew 250,000 or more people to New Hampshire over the span of nine days, or that the population of the state rose by nearly a fifth. On Tuesday, The Citizen reported Charlie St. Clair, executive director of the Laconia Motorcycle Week Association, to say that “it wasn’t a record year but it was up from last year” and that he expected the New Hampshire Division of Travel and Tourism Development and the American Motorcyclist Association to provide estimates of the attendance soon. The same article stated that in 2011 the two organizations placed attendance at 250,000. “No,” St. Clair insisted yesterday, “I never said that.” At the same time, he acknowledged that 250,000 “was the number that was bounced around last year.” Tai Freligh, the communications director of the Division of Travel and Tourism Development, said
that “we don’t take any attendance figures” and suggested that “the Laconia Motorcycle Week Association would have those numbers.” Likewise, James Holter of the American Motorcyclist Association, said that “we would not estimate the size of the crowd. We don’t have the ability or knowledge to make any estimate.” He acknowledged that the association records attendance at events it sponsors or sanctions for which registration is required. Holter expected local authorities were best placed to estimate the numbers attending the rally. Meanwhile, St. Clair, referring to the media, said that “they always demand to have numbers. They get fixated on numbers. I don’t.” he continued. “It’s irrelevant. But, if people want to have a number, I’ll throw one their way.” “As long we can show that it is busier during Motorcycle Week than it was the week before and the week after,” St. Clair declared, “we’ve done our job.. — Michael Kitch
from preceding page Erickson observed that the rally continued to spread beyond the Weirs in general and Lakeside Avenue in particular. “There are fewer places to stay at the Weirs,” he said, noting that nine cottage colonies and motels have been converted to condominiums and three campgrounds have closed. While crowds on Lakeside Avenue shrank at night, people flocked to venues north of the Weirs Beach sign — in the vicinity of Funspot. Since it opened a new store on Rte. 3, Laconia Harley-Davidson in Meredith has drawn rising numbers, with the effect, Erickson said, of extending the loop circumscribed by Lakeside Avenue, Scenic Road, Watson Road and Route 3 from four miles to 20 miles. Further afield, the “Rally in the Valley,” now in its fifth year, has brought a share of Motorcycle Week to the Mount Washington Valley. Ed Tolland of the Mount Washington Valley Riders, who stage the event, explained that they sell wristbands for $5 apiece, which entitle the bearer to discounts at 48 lodging establishments, restaurants and retail outlets. He said that this year, with eight nights of live entertainment, some 1,300 wristbands were sold, 500 more than a year ago, with proceeds from
the sales dedicated to a scholarship fund for high school graduates, which Tolland projected would top $10,000 this year. “It’s gotten bigger every year,” he said. “We’ve had lots of Canadians and many return later in the summer. Laconia City Manager Scott Myers said he expects the revenues from Motorcycle Week in form of planning fees, licensing fees, rental income and concessions to closely match the expenses for the emergency personnel and public services required to support the event, which were budgeted at $169,000. Planning fees amounted to $17,325 , liceensing fees to $126,125 and rental income to $22,500 for a total of $165,950. Revenue from the photo tower and banner poles and payroll as well as purchased services and equipment remain to be tallied. Myers said that the city licensed 192 merchandise vendors, 20 fewer than last year, and 39 food vendors, nine more than last year. Recalling a conversation with a local businessman who told him the rally was dead or dying, Erickson said “I think Bike Week is alive and well, but you can’t see from your front door or office window any more. You have to get out and around.”
Lynch vetoes malpractice reform bill: ‘needs more work’ CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire Gov. John Lynch says a bill that would provide a new way of resolving medical malpractice claims needs more work. Lynch on Wednesday vetoed a bill that would establish a voluntary program in which patients who are injured by medical providers would agree

not to go to court in exchange for getting compensated for their medical expenses and lost wages. Those who accept a so-called “early offer” would not be paid for lost earning capacity, pain, suffering or other damages. Lynch says the bill was well-intentioned but doesn’t fairly balance the interests of the public with the interests of medical providers. He specifically objected to requiring patients to decide within five days of meeting with an advisor whether or not to continue with the process.

Muskrat’s ‘Monster’ now a familiar shade of green By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — The newly-erected left-field wall, added to Robbie Mills Field this year as an homage to the Fenway Park icon, now bears the signature shade of green, thanks to the efforts of a cadre of volunteers on Thursday. Despite the first sweltering day of the summer, several children joined volunteer builders and a few members of a baseball organization to roll three coats of verdant paint onto the 17-foot-tall wall, just in time for tonight’s Laconia Muskrats game against the Mystic Schooners. The Muskrats are also home for games on Saturday and Sunday. The Muskrats, who are currently tied for second place in the New England Collegiate Baseball League’s Eastern Division, partnered with the Lakes Region Homebuilders and Remodelers to put up the wall earlier this month in a bid to give the Robbie Mills field a point of interest. In addition to the signature green — yes, Benjamin Moore markets the same color used at Fenway — the wall will also be fitted with a manually-operated scoreboard and will be adorned with the logos for the Muskrats and the Laconia High School Sachems. Original plans for the wall called for an entertainment deck to constructed behind the wall. The Muskrats have the city’s permission to sell beer on the deck, and fans would be able to watch the game from the top of the wall. However, delayed construction schedules have put off beer sales until next season, though team general manager Noah Crane said there’s a chance the deck could be completed CONTEMPT from page 2 privilege, Deputy Attorney General James Cole said in a letter to Issa, “We regret that we have arrived at this point, after the many steps we have taken to address the committee’s concerns and to accommodate the committee’s legitimate oversight interests.” As the day went on, comments rapidly grew more heated. A Boehner spokesman suggested administration officials had lied earlier or were now “bending the law.” Cummings said Issa “had no interest” in resolving the issue and was trying to pick a fight. The White House reacted sharply to the committee action. “Instead of creating jobs or strengthening the middle-class, congressional Republicans are spending their time on a politically motivated, taxpayer-funded election-year fishing expedition,” Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer said. Boehner raised another question after the presi-

before the end of this summer’s games. For Crane, amenities such as the left-field wall are icing on the cake of an already attractive Robbie Mills athletic facility. “The city does such a good job taking care of it, it’s an incredible spot.” He hoped the wall would prove an additional attraction for fans, which have been attending in low numbers so far this year. It’s already proven popular for players, according to manager Matt Alison. “I think they like it. It’s a unique nook and cranny. Anything that can make your ballpark unique, put that signature stamp on it, makes it fun for the players and the fans,” Alison said. The wall has already made its presence felt, when Muskrats first baseman Tyler Jackson belted a drive that struck the wall about 12 feet up. That hit would have cleared the fence last year, thanks to the wall he had to stop at second base. “I’m sure Jackson would have loved to have a home run instead of a double, other than that, they like it,” said Alison. Despite exchanging the homer for a double, the Muskrats were able to win that game on Saturday against the Newport Gulls. The Muskrats are now at five wins, four losses this season. By the end of the weekend, the team could find itself contending for first place. However, reported Crane, success on the field hasn’t translated into filled stands. In their first four games, the Muskrats have seen attendance that is well below league average. Now that Bike Week and high school graduation season is over, Crane hopes baseball fans are in the mood to take in a game — maybe one with a green wall in left field.
dent invoked the privilege. His press secretary, Brendan Buck, “The White House decision to invoke executive privilege implies that White House officials were either involved in the ‘Fast and Furious’ operation or the cover-up that followed. The administration has always insisted that wasn’t the case. Were they lying, or are they now bending the law to hide the truth?” Democrat Cummings said Issa could have settled the matter with Holder reasonably but has instead resorted to “partisan and inflammatory personal attacks.” Holder and Issa failed to reach agreement Tuesday in a 20-minute meeting at the Capitol. During the committee’s year-and-a-half-long investigation, the department has turned over 7,600 documents about the conduct of the Fast and Furious operation.

Winnisquam’s neighborhood market re-opens under new ownership & with a new name By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
TILTON — When the venerable Winnisquam Trading Post closed in September, visitors and residents of the neighborhood lost their nearby source for fishing supplies, convenience items and basic necessities.The business re-opened a few weeks ago as the Winnisquam Market & Deli, thanks to the efforts of a four-person team of owners who have given the store a top-to-bottom renovation and added some new amenities. The site of the store, 1021 Laconia Road, located on the Tilton side of Route 3’s Mosquito Bridge, has been the site of many staple operations over the years. Customers with long memories have stopped in to tell the new owners of how there was once a post office, soda fountain and gas station where they stood. For most of the site’s recent history, though, it has been the location of the Winnisquam Trading Post, founded by Mark and Debbie Tompson. They operated the business for many years, selling recently as a means to retire. However, the purchasers of the business — the Tompsons retained ownership of the real estate — were unable to make ends meet and the store closed after last summer. In March, a team of four local residents purchased the store, building and land from the Tompsons, injecting a fresh perspective and a great deal of sweat equity into the familiar business. The new owners are Mike Abel, Gary Wood, Joe Montalto and Shooter’s Tavern co-owner Mike Rowland. The weeks following the purchase saw an extensive floor-to-ceiling renovation that its new owners hope will be more pleasant and more convenient for their customer base, which includes vacationers arriving for a week-long rental, seasonal residents looking to grab a quick something, fishermen who need a breakfast sandwich and a side of live bait
or year-rounders picking up their morning newspaper and coffee. Alluding to the unique place that the store occupies in its customers’ hearts, Abel said care was taken in the remodeling process to keep the store’s character. “With all the renovations we did, we didn’t want it to feel like a 7-11. It’s still the country store at the end of the road.” With renovations wrapped up in time for Memorial Day, the Winnisquam Market & Deli opened with a fresh interior and some new offerings. The fishing supply now takes up twice the level of display area. The usual convenience items — beer and soda, chips and snacks — are there, and soon they’ll be joined by a chilled wine cooler. Most notable is the addition of a large, all-new kitchen. The store now offers pizzas, calzones, fried dinners, sandwiches, salads and bagels. There’s also a deli, offering cold cuts, salads and marinated steak tips. The changes are enough to take aback the store’s old clientele when see the place for the first time since renovatoins. It’s something Montalto said he hears regularly: “’Wow!’ That’s what they say when they when they walk in the door.” As proud of the renovation as they are, they also are committed to the less-tangible aspects of their business. Service, customized to the customer’s needs, are what Abel said they offer. Several regulars ask the store to hold a copy of their favorite newspaper just for them. One couple drinks diet Sunkist exclusively, and so the store will stock that unusual soda. Soon, they’ll start making deliveries to the nearby sand bar on Lake Winnisquam. To make the deliveries, they’ll utilize the store’s dock, an amenity which is also available to water-faring customers. see next page

SANDUSKY from page 2 showered with boys; and in letters he wrote to one of his accusers. Sandusky is charged with 51 criminal counts for the alleged abuse of 10 boys over 15 years. One of the last witnesses called was Dr. Jonathan Dranov, a physician summoned to the home of Mike McQueary’s father in February 2001 to hear McQueary’s account of seeing Sandusky sexually assaulting a boy in the campus showers. The boy, known only as Victim 2, has never been identified and isn’t known to prosecutors. Dranov testified that McQueary told of hearing “sexual sounds” and seeing a boy in the shower before an arm reached around to pull him out of view. McQueary said he made eye contact with the boy and Sandusky later emerged from the showers, Dranov said. from preceding page The Winnisquam Market & Deli will be open year-round, every day of the year. For the summer, the store will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Abel invited fans of the old store to visit and see what he and his partners have been up to. “If you haven’t seen it for a while, it’s worth the nickel tour. You’ll say, ‘Wow!’ just like everybody else does.”
That account is different from what McQueary told a grand jury and testified to at a preliminary hearing and at the trial. He has said he saw Sandusky directly behind the boy’s back, moving his midsection enough to convince McQueary it was a sex act. Dranov told the jury that McQueary described hearing sounds he considered sexual in nature but did not provide him with a graphic description of what he saw. “It just seemed to make him upset so I backed off that,” Dranov said. Asked to describe McQueary’s demeanor, Dranov said: “His voice was trembling. His hands were shaking. He was visibly shaken,” Dranov said. McQueary’s report to his superiors — and Penn State officials’ failure to go to outside law enforcement — led to the firing of Paterno, who died of cancer in January. McQueary had testified earlier in the trial that he wasn’t “over-descriptive” in his conversation with Dranov, saying he told the doctor that what he saw was sexual, wrong and perverse. The defense rested around lunchtime Wednesday. Judge John Cleland said jury instructions and closing arguments by the defense and then prosecution would take place Thursday morning. If convicted, the 68-year-old former defensive coordinator could be sent to state prison for the rest of his life. The seven days of testimony were

FOOD from page one 130 cases of food and Adams said the mixed vegetables and the canned tomatoes were eliminated. In Merrimack-Belknap County there are six distribution centers of which Laconia is one. The Laconia Center on Route 106 distributes federal surplus food to 14 different food pantries in the area including the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry and the United Baptist Food Pantry in Lakeport. “These are things we don’t have to purchase,” said Jo Carignan of St. Vincent de Paul — the largest food pantry in the Lakes Region, who explained that the USDA staples are a fornt line of support and what she doesn’t get from them must be bought from either cash donations made to the food pantry or be supplemented by individual donations of food. “Those reductions really hurt,” she said. “I got 13 cases of cereal, 12 boxes in a case and about 300 families. It doesn’t go far.” According to CAP distribution sheets, St. Vincent’s get about 40-percent of the USDA bulk food that comes into Laconia. The loss of 44 cases of food to the pantry means getting more of the basics from the community and Carignan said the need for food in the summer can be especially acute because children don’t have access to school lunches. Carignan applauds the efforts of the program Got Lunch! Laconia and the CAP Program that works with Project Extra to bring lunches to the Laconia Community Center and the Boys and Girls Club but said the two reach only the surfaces of hunger in the Lakes Region. Carignan said hunger in the Lakes Region has many faces and one of the faces she and United Baptist Church Food Pantry Rev. Sharron Lamothe are from preceding page far shorter than the three weeks or so that Cleland had predicted, as many of the 28 defense witnesses were there to briefly vouch for Sandusky’s reputation. Prosecutors called 22 witnesses, including eight young men, ages 18 to 28, who alleged a range of abuse from grooming, kissing and massaging to fondling, oral sex and anal rape. David Hilton, who met Sandusky through a summer camp of his charity, testified Wednesday he felt like investigators were trying to coach him into accusing Sandusky. “When it got to the second or third time I felt like they wanted me to say something that isn’t true,” he said. The other witnesses on Wednesday were a man who ran a golf event for the charity, who testified that McQueary may have participated in the event after the 2001 shower incident; and a Second Mile alum who praised Sandusky’s reputation and referred to him as a father figure. Prosecutors allege that Sandusky met his alleged victims through The Second Mile, which once was lauded for its efforts to help atrisk children but now appears headed for closure as a result of the

seeing more often are older faces. Both food pantry heads said more and more seniors are finding their fixed income doesn’t get them through. Traditionally, elderly people have been among the most reluctant to seek assistance, however, both said they seem to be more accepting
of services than in then past. “It’s sad to see,” said Carignan, adding she has seen an increase in the number of widows who come to her pantry. “Many of these women didn’t work outside the see next page

from preceding page home back then. Many of them are living on tiny Social Security checks,” she said. Lamothe said she is also seeing a lot of elderly people at United Baptist and said many of them are caring for their grandchildren. “I see lots of extended families with small children,” she said. While both food pantries serve the same purpose and while both are largely dependent on the proverbial kindness of strangers, the two are different in size and approach. Carignan sees St. Vincent de Paul’s as a supplemental food program. A family is allowed one visit a month and they can get enough food to feed each person in the family three meals a day for seven days. i She chooses to buy most of her food from local supermarkets and takes advantage of bulk food purchases the private companies allow her to make, often “lost leaders” like things being advertised at ta low price to draw customers into a store. “They don’t have to let us buy in bulk but they do and we are eternally grateful,” she said. St. Vincent no longer uses the N.H. Food Bank, primarily, said Carignan, because the trip takes time and money and she can get as good of a selection of food at a similar cost through her local networks.
At United Baptist, a much smaller organization, Lamothe said she buys most of her food from the Food Bank. United Baptist, she said, is an emergency pantry that is open Fridays. People are limited to one visit a month and each family can get enough food to feed each family member three meals a day for three days. Lamothe also goes to the Meredith Hannaford store and gets produce on Sunday morning that would be otherwise discarded and distributes it to people who attend Sunday services. Both said neither organization would turn away a hungry person and each provides an emergency contact for immediate assistance. Both said they try and include food that is appropriate for the individual family — like baby food for someone with an infant. And both organizations as well as the other food pantries in the area are largely dependents on the generosity of the community. All of the local food pantries and the Community Action Program are reaching out to the community for some assistance — especially in the wake of losing a significant portion of the federal food sources.

Big Papi’s slam leads Red Sox past Marlins, 15-5 BOSTON (AP) — David Ortiz hit a grand slam for one of the Red Sox’s four homers as they set a season high in runs, beating the Miami Marlins 15-5 Wednesday night on the hottest day of the year in Boston. Mike Aviles, Jarod Saltalamacchia and Will Middlebrooks also homered one night after Ortiz hit one of Boston’s three homers in a 7-5 victory over Miami. NAME from page one tion doing business as the “Waukewan and Winona Watershed Protective Association,” headed by con-chairs David Reilly of Center Harbor and Deborah Corr of Meredith. The Waukewan Shore Owners Association were told they could not use the name without the written consent of the Waukewan and Winona Watershed Protective Association. “We have no intention of allowing them to use our trade name,” Corr said yesterday. “We have asked the Waukewan Shore Owners Association to stop using our name, but they have not replied to us.” Duncan McNeish, treasurer of the Waukewan Shore Owners Association, declined all comment. This week Reilly and Corr distributed a letter explaining the situation and advising media outlets and others that if the Waukewan Shore Owners Association represents itself as the “’Waukewan Watershed Association’” they are violating state law (RSA 292:3). The tussle over the trade name from preceding page people to give to local agencies — regardless of which one makes the most sense for them. “You are feeding your friends and neighbors,” said Lamothe. “You just don’t realize it.” Lamothe also said donations of non-food items like diapers, bar soap, laundry soap, and toilet paper are welcome. These are products that all households need and can not be purchased with the USDA Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program — commonly known as “food stamps.” ily Open Da pm 8am-6:30
With a game-time temperature of 95 degrees, the Red Sox pounded out 16 hits and won their fourth straight game and sixth in their last seven. They moved out of last place in the AL East at 35-33, passing Toronto after the Blue Jays lost 8-3 to Milwaukee. The Marlins lost for the 12th time in 14 games despite scoring four runs and nine hits in six innings against Felix Doubront (8-3). echoes the dispute over the lake level. In 2010, the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (DES) decided to reconsider the operating level of Lake Waukewan after heavy rainfall in 2006, 2007 and 2009. When an interim level of 539.5 feet was set in 2010, the Waukewan Shore Owners Association was among those who clamored to raise it to 540 feet while Reilly, Corr and Janan Hays, vice-chairman of the Waukewan and Winona Watershed Protective Association, favored the lower level. Last year DES raised the level to 540 feet, prompting those supporting the lower level to appeal the decision. Earlier this month the Water Council denied the appeal and upheld the department’s decision. Meanwhile, Randy Eifert, chairman of the Waukewan Watershed Advisory Committee, a volunteer panel appointed by the Board of Selectmen of the five communities in the watershed to oversee implementation of the management plan, has also advised the press not to confuse the committee with either association. Both said summer food standards for children are in order if people want to donate food instead of money. “Boxes of cereal, soups, beans and macaroni and cheese are the things young people like in the summer,” said Carignan describing them as things most children can put together for themselves if their parents are working. Lamothe said she also tries to include something for dessert especially during the summer. “A cookie or a bag of potato chips once in a while can be a nice treat for someone,” she said.

Gilford church announces summer worship hours GILFORD — During the summer, everyone’s schedule changes; some families travel and some go onto the islands. International students come here to work in the tourist industry. Days are longer and people are looking for a change. To accommodate these changes, First United Methodist Church, 18 Wesley Way, off Rt. 11A in Gilford will be offering three worship times on Sundays for July and August. Each service will be different. At 8:30 a.m., there will be a casual service with a focus
on singing, trying some new and older hymns, and having discussion and prayer instead of a sermon. Communion will be shared on the first Sunday of each month. At 10:30 a.m., the regular blended service will be held, with special activities, such as the “Blessing of the Animals” on August 5. Different groups and individuals in the congregation will be providing special music. Communion will be shared on July 1. The day will close with an evening service at 7 p.m. focusing on a weekly communion and prayer.
GILFORD — The Meadowbrook U.S. Cellular Pavilion is delivering a heavy metal show on August 9 that will feature Slipknot with special guests, Asking Alexandria and As I Lay Dying. Slipknot is an American heavy metal band known for their attention-grabbing image. The nine members wear matching uniforms, have unique masks respectively, and have aliases which are simply numbers. Slipknot formed in 1995 and underwent several line-up changes following the independent release of their first demo, Mate. Feed. Kill. Repeat. in 1996.

tain Historic Preservation Society. She began her skiing career at the Belknap Recreation Complex and was a ski jumper who competed throughout her high school years. The Historical Preservation Society is in building phase and has had many accomplishments in just a short period of time. Those include: the jumps being named on NH’s Seven to Save in the fall of 2009, Rededication of the Torger Tokle Jump in 2010, The Historical Preservation Award from the NH Preservation Alliance in 2012, the continual cataloging and preservation of 75 years of history at Gunstock, and having the base lodge placed on the NH State Register of Historic Places.

LACONIA — The Taylor Community will hold a free informational session ‘’Assisted Living for Seniors’’ on Wednesday, June 27 from 5:30-7 p.m. Presenters include Dr. Peter Walkley, Chief of Staff, LRGHealthcare, and Mary Farley, former Senior Living Director for Sunrise Senior Living. In addition to the information presented, the format provides ample opportunity for discussion, with questions and answers. “Many seniors choose to stay in their home, but that may not be the best choice,” says Paul Charlton, director of marketing, Taylor Community. “Often times the senior living on their own or even if their family is around, can be bored and lonely due to limited socialization.” He said that assisted living facilities provide opportunities to meet friends and be around other people who are peers. In addition to the social piece, the safety, security and peace of mind that comes from knowing that staff is available 24/7 for anything that comes up is extremely important to the residents and their families says Charlton. Advance registration is requested by calling 5245600. For more information about Assisted Living visit www.taylorcommunity.org.

By Holiday Mathis sible to describe, and few possess it. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Imagination and practicality are qualities that seem sometimes to be at war with each other. But there is a way to make the imaginative and the practical work together. And when it happens, it’s brilliant. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You know where you belong in the big picture, but there are too many options in the little picture for you to be completely sure of how best to spend this day. Trust that you are divinely guided. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Resentment and regret are energy drains that are easily plugged today with a healthy dose of neglect. Refuse to give your attention to the bitter feelings, and they magically heal. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Level with someone about what you’d really like out of the relationship. Why not have both your needs (SET ITAL) and (END ITAL) your wants met? You deserve to be happy! PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You need a break from all the emotional work you’ve been doing lately. Make plans to be near people who are easy to be with. Laughter and breezy conversations are restorative. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 21). You may not feel like you’re on a quest at the start of the year, but you’ll gather information, inspiration and team members in the next seven weeks. By midAugust, your mission is underway. A financial exchange keeps your project rolling and growing through September. December brings family fun. Aries and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 30, 2, 14 and 29.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your creative juices are flowing, which helps you in every area of life. Even seemingly non-creative areas of life will be improved by your imaginative approach. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You have an easy way of relating with people, and you’ll fall into a pleasant social groove. A Leo will help you connect with your heart and trust its guidance. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ve been in a powerful cycle, and now you’re ready to rest a bit. You don’t have to have the answers, solve the problems or do much of anything at all. You don’t even have to “be you.” All you have to do is relax. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You can deliberately create joy in any moment, and that’s precisely what you set out to do at the beginning of the day. Anyone who has other plans will find that your joy-mission can’t be derailed. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There is a rule for everything, from eating bread to launching spacecrafts. When in doubt, learn the rule. You can always break it if you want to. Better to break a learned rule than one you don’t know about. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your friends know you well enough to sense when you’re hiding something, trying to spare their feelings or simply not “into” an activity. It feels great to have people around with whom you can be completely honest. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Highlighted today is a certain longing in your heart that makes you unique.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Thursday, June 21, the 173rd day of 2012. There are 193 days left in the year. Today’s Highlights in History: On June 21, 1942, German forces led by Generaloberst (Colonel General) Erwin Rommel captured the Libyan city of Tobruk during World War II. (Following his victory, Rommel was promoted to Field Marshal; Tobruk was retaken by the Allies in November 1942.) An Imperial Japanese submarine fired shells at Fort Stevens on the Oregon coast, causing little damage. On this date: In 1788, the United States Constitution went into effect as New Hampshire became the ninth state to ratify it. In 1834, Cyrus Hall McCormick received a patent for his reaping machine. In 1932, heavyweight Max Schmeling lost a title fight rematch in New York by decision to Jack Sharkey, prompting Schmeling’s manager, Joe Jacobs, to exclaim: “We was robbed!” In 1963, Cardinal Giovanni Battista Montini was chosen to succeed the late Pope John XXIII; the new pope took the name Paul VI. In 1964, civil rights workers Michael H. Schwerner, Andrew Goodman and James E. Chaney were murdered in Philadelphia, Miss.; their bodies were found buried in an earthen dam six weeks later. In 1982, a jury in Washington D.C. found John Hinckley Jr. not guilty by reason of insanity in the shootings of President Ronald Reagan and three other men. In 1989, a sharply divided Supreme Court ruled that burning the American flag as a form of political protest was protected by the First Amendment. In 2005, 41 years to the day after three civil rights workers were beaten and shot to death, Edgar Ray Killen, an 80-year-old former Ku Klux Klansman, was found guilty of manslaughter in a Mississippi court. (Killen was sentenced to 60 years in prison.) One year ago: Amid street protests, Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou survived a confidence vote. Defending national champion South Carolina tied the record for consecutive NCAA tournament wins with a 7-1 victory over Virginia at the College World Series.

Page 26 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, June 21, 2012
Dear Annie: I am engaged to a man who was divorced 20 years ago. He has three grown sons. The first two are doing well, but the third is still not financially responsible at the age of 30. His father has to pay off his automobile and credit cards. My fiance also helps out his siblings, who seem to be quite irresponsible and alcoholic. I come from a large family, and we each were told that at age 21, we were on our own. We all obtained professional degrees and now help our parents. At what age does a parent allow a child to grow up and become responsible? It appears to me that my future will be forever intertwined with relatives who are begging us for money. My fiance won’t discuss this matter with me. What should I do? -- Engaged but Having Second Thoughts Dear Engaged: Children should be encouraged to support themselves as soon as they are finished with their education. Those who go on to obtain advanced degrees should find some type of part-time job or take out student loans. It is OK to help a child with temporary financial difficulties, but not to the extent that the child becomes dependent on the parents. Once you marry, decisions about money should be made jointly. If your future husband will not discuss these things with you now, he is not likely to consult you later. You are smart to recognize the problem. We recommend premarital counseling. Dear Annie: My granddaughter is getting married in September. After 31 years of marriage, her parents were divorced nine years ago (his infidelity) in a nasty battle over money. Her father, who remarried two years ago, insists that his new wife’s name be on the wedding invitation. This suggests she raised my granddaughter, which she didn’t. My granddaughter is distraught over this. I’ve checked the etiquette books, and in case of divorce,
the bride’s mother’s name and father’s name should be on separate lines inviting guests to attend the wedding. The father’s new wife doesn’t appear anywhere. I believe my exson-in-law is trying to somehow punish my daughter, but he is actually hurting his own child. My daughter told my granddaughter that if Dad will not relent, she should have the invitations go out under the names of the bride and groom without mentioning the parents at all. What is the appropriate thing to do? Is the bride wrong to want only her mother’s and father’s names on the invitation? -- Maria from Ohio Dear Maria: If Mom and Dad are sharing the costs of the wedding, both of their names and, yes, those of their spouses should appear on the invitation. If Dad is not contributing, his name need not appear at all. However, many brides want both parents’ names on the invitation regardless of who is hosting the event, in which case, the spouses of the parents should be included. Dear Annie: I’d like to comment on the letter from “Texas,” who is concerned that her husband wants to take their kids to visit his parents in Mexico. I am a single woman, 81 years old, and I lived most of my life in Southern California. When the cost of living got too high, I moved near Tijuana. I still don’t speak Spanish, but I never have felt in danger. There are large sections of Tijuana that could be picked up lock, stock and barrel and set down in the middle of Santa Monica and be right at home. I don’t go into the questionable parts of town, but then, there are a lot of places in Los Angeles where I wouldn’t go, either. The wife should visit her in-laws and see their environment for herself before doing anything drastic. -- Not Afraid in Mexico

capitalize on the freshest seasonal ingredients. The wine list features a variety of unheralded gems that pair well with the bold flavors of Chef Mallett’s cuisine. Black Trumpet’s cuisine reflects the chefowner’s culinary curiosity, drawing inspiration from the Mediterranean as well as the Americas. A typical Black Trumpet menu may include influences from Spain, North Africa, Turkey and the Mexican heartland. This class is yet another expression of the “Rethink Tradition” theme adopted by Canterbury Shaker Village in this 2012 season. James Haller, co-author of Cooking in the Shaker Spirit, references Shaker cooking as “the oldest new American Cooking” because of its simplicity, locally-sourced and home-grown ingredients, care taken in the creation from start to finish, and enjoyment
of consumption. Yet again the Shakers prove themselves ahead of their time through their authenticity, and right in synch with modern sensibilities. This class, as well as the season’s additional cooking classes will give participants a hands-on connection to the Shaker cooking aesthetic.

Jonny Littman wanted to meet his hero, and the WWE accommodated that wish Monday night before an episode of “Raw” live from New York’s Long Island. But Jonny got a bonus to his wish. On Wednesday morning, Jonny was being interviewed on “Good Morning America” when Sam Champion asked him about his green T-shirt. After Jonny told him it was John Cena, Champion asked if anyone knew the WWE Superstar. The pro wrestler and actor walked out to Jonny’s surprise and presented him with another gift. This time it was tickets for him and his family to attend the 1,000th episode of the WWE show. To put Cena’s 300 granted wishes in perspective, Michael Jordan has granted around 200 and Kobe Bryant is in the 100-wish range. “I truly give hats off to Make-AWish for keeping statistics,” Cena said Monday before the show. “They had a nice little celebration for me at 200, and I humbly said we should do it at 1,000. “We’re just getting started,” he said enthusiastically. But Cena was clearly touched by the latest one. “I’m just flattered completely that I could be the wish,” he said. Jonny, from Hop Bottom, Pa., has severe congenital malformation and spina bifida and uses a wheelchair. He spoke to his hero for a few minutes and took some pictures with him. He even put on his WWE Championship belt. His mother, Ruth, says his surgeons wore it during his last surgery. After signing T-shirts and WWE
merchandise and presenting him with a videogame system, the superstar graciously walked out of the room. Cena prepared for his featured match, and Jonny and his family waited to go into the Nassau Coliseum for a live televised weekly show, “Raw.” After he left the room, Jonny chanted: “Cena. John Cena. Cena.” Cena is following a WWE tradition of granting wishes. The organization grants about 140 wishes per year between requests to meet WWE Superstars or attend its live shows. The tradition started in the early 1980s with Hulk Hogan being the most requested. And while these wishes make children with life-threatening medical conditions feel good for the moment, organizers say they also have a lasting effect. Make-A-Wish CEO David Williams cites cases in which seriously ill children clung to life for weeks and sometimes months in anticipation of the wish. Surveys by his organization found that many doctors and nurses felt the wish had a physical benefit to the patient, and most families said a wish strengthened the entire family at a fragile time. “They said it was a very much needed boost,” Williams said. The organization has 30,000 volunteers who help carry out the wishes. Corporations, airlines, hotels, and other donors assure that most wish requests are met. Still, Williams said, “Every year in the U.S., 27,000 are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, and the organization serves about 14,000. For every family that we’re helping, there’s a child that we are not.” As for Cena, “I know this is the entertainment business and there will come a time when I’m not requested, but I’ll still be donating my time and money, I love what they do.”
