LACONIA — A majority of the City Council has agreed to supplement the School District’s capital campaign by providing sufficient funding to include the construction of six science laboratories and the reconfiguration of the athletic playing fields in the expansion and renovation of the Huot Regional Technical Education Center at the High School. Councilors are expected to consider the amount and terms

of the borrowing required when they meet Monday night. “Now is the opportunity to do this project,” Councilor Bob Hamel (Ward 5) said yesterday, noting that it was the last project to receive school building aid from the state before a moratorium was declared. “ We should do it right. For the extra money we have to invest, it will be worth it. “ School Superintendent Bob Champlin

said yesterday that assuming the ongoing capital campaign raises $1-million, the available funding for the project would be approximately $813,000 shy of the most recent estimated cost of $16.6-million. The Bank of New Hampshire has contributed $250,000 to the capital campaign and in return the all-weather turf stadium will bear its name. Other corporate contribusee LHs page 7

$50M of Schilling’s savings from baseball gone with collapse of Rhode Island company

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling said Friday that the collapse of his 38 Studios video game company has probably cost him his entire baseball fortune, and he placed part of the blame on Rhode Island officials, including Gov. Lincoln Chafee. Schilling said during a 90-minute interview on WEEI-FM in Boston that he put more than $50 million of his own money in the company and that he’s had to tell his family that “the money I saved during baseball was probably all gone.” Schilling said he hopes to return to work see CURT page 8

Sandusky guilty on 45 counts, taken right to jail BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) — Jerry Sandusky was convicted Friday of sexually assaulting 10 boys over 15 years, accusations that shattered the Happy Valley image of Penn State football and led to the firing of Hall of Fame coach Joe Paterno. Sandusky, a 68-year-old retired defensive coach who was once Paterno’s heir apparent, was found guilty of 45 of 48 counts. Sandusky showed little emotion as the verdict was read. The judge ordered him

to be taken to the county jail to await sentencing in about three months. Many of the charges carry mandatory minimum sentences and Sandusky is certain to spend the rest of his life in prison. The judge revoked Sandusky’s bail and ordered him jailed. In court, Sandusky halfwaved toward family as the sheriff led him away. Outside, he calmly walked to a sheriff’s car with his hands cuffed in front of him. The accuser known in court papers as

Victim 6 broke down in tears upon hearing the verdicts in the courtroom. Afterward, a prosecutor embraced him and said, “Did I ever lie to you?” The man, now 25, testified that Sandusky called himself the “tickle monster” in a shower assault. He declined to comment to a reporter afterward. His mother said: “Nobody wins. We’ve all lost.” Almost immediately after the judge see SANDUSKY page 11

Clinton tells U.N. conference family planning is key to sustainability RIO DE JANEIRO(AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton took a stand for women’s reproductive rights during the Rio+20 United Nations conference on Friday, saying “women must be empowered to make decisions on whether and when to have children” if the world is to attain agreed-upon sustainable development goals. The U.S. Secretary of State spoke during the conference’s last day, applauding the

final document’s endorsement of women’s sexual and reproductive health but making it clear that she objected to the omission of specific language on reproductive rights. “While I am very pleased that this year’s outcome document endorses sexual and reproductive health and universal access to family planning, to reach our goals in sustainable development we also have to ensure women’s reproductive rights,” Clin-

ton said. “The United States will continue to work to ensure that those rights are respected in international agreements.” As in past global gatherings, there was much discussion at Rio+20 about the language related to women’s reproductive health and rights. An initial draft of this conference’s outcome document stated, “We are commitsee CLINTON page 9

European leaders agree to push for $163B economic growth package ROME (AP) — The leaders of France, Germany, Italy and Spain have agreed to push for a growth package worth up to 130 billion ($163 billion) at a European Union summit next week that’s intended to kick-start the economy and safeguard the currency bloc. President Francois Hollande of France,

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and Italian Premier Mario Monti, playing host, provided few details beyond agreement on pursuing a financial transaction tax — something Germany has championed. Economists said the size of the growth package would be modest, about 1 percent

of the euro alliance’s gross domestic product. But they said it marked a recognition by Merkel that more government spending would be needed. “It is at least a step in the right direction,” said Ted Truman, a former international economics advisor at the Federal see EURO page 13

(AP) — Support has been pouring in for a Massachusetts man who got a $235 towing bill after he thought he parked in a public spot at New Hampshire’s Hampton Beach.

He told the Eagle Tribune) the bill’s more than half of his weekly take-home pay. A message left for the hotel owner wasn’t immediately returned Friday.

Laconia doctor reaches settlement with med board

LACONIA (AP) — The New Hampshire Board of Medicine has fined a doctor $3,000 and ordered him to take classes in general prescribing practices and cancer diagnosis following complaints about his care. Roger Gutner, who practices internal medicine at the Laconia Clinic, signed a settlement agreement with the board on June 8. The Citizen reports the board investigated after learning in 2010 that Gutner was named as a defendant in a medical malpractice lawsuit. It also received a complaint in 2011 about inadequate patient care. The board found Gutner didn’t send a lesion removed from a patient to pathology or schedule any follow-up. The patient died of metastatic melanoma, although it wasn’t clear if the death was related to a diagnosis delay. Gutner’s lawyer says Gutner has a long and excellent record.

37 words It was 40 years ago that Congress passed the Education Amendments of 1972. Tucked into the bill was an amendment sponsored by then-Sen. Birch Bayh, which provided: “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.” It sounds innocuous. But as Bayh recounts the story, it met with substantial opposition from the all-male Senate Judiciary Committee at the time. “They would say things like giving women equal rights to things like jobs and pay would be disruptive to the home if women were out working instead of being mothers,” he told reporters in a recent interview. “But it didn’t make sense because there were women already that were working jobs to support their families just fine.” What turned the tide was the testimony of Rep. Shirley Chisholm, the first African-American woman elected to serve in Congress. “Gentlemen, you know that I’m discriminated against all the time because I’m black. But that’s nothing compared to how much discrimination I get for being a woman.” One year later, tennis great Billie Jean King defeated Bobby Riggs in the tennis match billed “The Battle of the Sexes.” This week, 40 years after the passage of what became Title IX of the law, King went to Capitol Hill along with Dr. Mae Carol Jemison, the first woman of color to go into space, Olympic gold medalist Nancy Hogshead-Makar, and Superintendent of the U.S. Coast Guard Academy Rear Admiral Sandra L. Stosz to talk about how Title IX changed lives, theirs included. Before the passage of Title IX, one in 27 girls participated in high school sports. Today, two out of five do. The number of women playing varsity sports in college has increased some 500 times. Title IX, by ending discrimination in athletic scholarships, opened the door to college for countless American girls. It has helped them to develop the strength, confidence and leadership skills that accomplished men with backgrounds in high school and college sports have long pointed to as factors in their success.

Back in 1984, when I was working for presidential candidate Walter Mondale, I always looked for opportunities to insert what we called “women’s issues” into his stump speech. That summer, the Olympics in Los Angeles captured the imagination of the nation. Why not? I wrote a few lines pointing to the great success of the women at the games, and how many of them had played sports in high school and college — thanks in no small part to Title IX. To everyone’s surprise, myself included, it was a huge applause line. I looked at the crowd and realized that many — or most — of the parents in the audience were the fathers and mothers of girls. They got it. It’s easy to feel skeptical and cynical about almost everything that happens in Washington, to think that it doesn’t matter who wins and loses because nothing really changes. But that’s not true. Because of the courage of the men in the United States Senate back in 1972, including Birch Bayh and Walter Mondale, because of the courage of Shirley Chisholm, because of those 37 words, the lives of girls and women changed. Yes, there are proponents of men’s sports who claim that the less popular (read: profitable) male sports have been shortchanged as a result of Title IX. But the studies don’t bear it out. If you insist on victims for cutbacks, blame football (which eats up so many athletic scholarships), not women’s basketball or volleyball. One of my research assistants, who just graduated, is a woman of unusual maturity, strength and character. She is wise beyond her years. She has wonderful parents, but they don’t take the credit. She was captain of the women’s volleyball team at Cornell. No, she’s a lawyer now, not a volleyball player. But if you ask her, if you ask her parents, if you ask me, her years playing sports in high school and college made her the leader she will be for the rest of her life. Thirty-seven words were all it took. (Susan Estrich is a professor of Law and Political Science at the University of Southern California Law Center. A best-selling author, lawyer and politician, as well as a teacher, she first gained national prominence as national campaign manager for Dukakis for President in 1988.)

Never forget those who gave their yesterdays for our todays To the editor, On behalf of American Legion Post 1, thanks to all who joined in the Memorial Day parade, whether scheduled or not. Thanks to all who took the time along the parade route to come out and observe our efforts, and to those who assembled to hear the comments of our speakers. The Laconia High School band was fantastic as always and does “taps “ for us each

year. It just makes our efforts seem so worthwhile. Never forget those who gave their yesterdays for todays and tomorrows. There are many among us who are still suffering the effects of their service and quietly remembering their days in hell. Remember them in your prayers.

LETTERS I believe in education; we need to do all we can for each generation To the editor, Recently there have been at least two letters to the editor focusing on education. Kent Warner’s letter entitled “Train the Brain” discussed education in New Hampshire and the need to elect Democrats dedicated to improving education in our state. Tony Boutin’s letter was a rebuttal of the first letter. Tony Boutin’s letter brings up Wisconsin and big muscle teachers’ unions. In New Hampshire teachers are allowed to sit down with representatives of the community and talk about conditions important to both sides. Teachers can request an independent fact finding report but in the final picture the representatives of the community have the final say on any changes. It really is a process that can be successful when bargaining is done in good faith. Please note that when times get tough, cuts in education are inevitable. Big muscle teachers’ unions do not exist in N.H. “There is an old saying that the course of civilization is a race between catastrophe and education. In a democracy such as ours, we must make sure that education wins the race.” This is a quote from John F. Kennedy. We are not throwing money at education in New Hampshire. We are the last among the 50 states for

state aid to education. Guess who will win the race? We all need to understand that a rising tide lifts all ships. If our young people are successful, they contribute to our society in many positive ways. They buy homes and fix them up. The value of property increases. They pay taxes to help offset the deficit. They contribute to Social Security and Medicare which are very important programs. If they are not successful, the picture is quite different. I am a senior citizen and my children are in their thirties and forties. I am a big believer in education. It can be money well spent. We are all in this together. We need to do what we can for each generation. New Hampshire should not be the lowest of the 50 states in aid to education. Please join me in voting Democratic in November. Can you imagine New Hampshire in the complete control of the far right? We cannot let them have control of the House, the Senate and the position of governor. We need people who care about the majority of Americans and not just the richest. We need to give our young people a fighting chance. Paul Bonneville Lochmere

Pell Grant program has helped many thousands improve their lives To the editor, I was just reading another one of Tony B’s rants about another issue which he continues to dream up. First, he bashed Social Security , calling it and Medicare a “welfare scam. He said that in his round three, even though he suffered a SKO (Stupid knock out) nine seconds into the first round. Second, he took on the teachers’ unions, blaming them for all the failures; next it was General Motors and the United Auto workers. I guess we can get the message that Tony hates unions. He can join his pal, Mr. Neil (right to work for less ) Young and bash just about everything. They probably deserve one another. Last (at least I hope so), he is ranting about about failure of government and Pell grants. There is a program that helped thousands of people get to college and improve their quality of life. Of course Tony, and his new friends in the tea party will have none of that. Those people, also known as

cement heads, are against everything and and for nothing. They will NOT COMPROMISE on anything, they, the CEMENT HEADS are the problem, not the people who are willing to sit down and work to SOLVE problems, not just complain like Tony. By the way, I was a life long Democrat, like my father and his father before me , however the party got taken over by extremists like Al Gore who I voted AGAINST, not for George and of course John (I’ll never be poor again) Kerry. I am not a fan of Obama either, but compared to “Willard” he is a star. I guess I will be voting Democrat in 2012, especially in the governors race so we can keep right to work (for less) out of N.H. Well Tony, enough is enough, I read where you thought Chile was a place where you can get more for your money, so have a safe trip, write when you can and don’t let the door hit you on the behind on the way out.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, June 23, 2012 — Page 5

LETTERS Read it, it’s not hard to understand meaning of our Constitution To the editor, Donald E. Sanitarelly, an associate deputy attorney general during the Nixon administration stated “the separation of powers is obsolete”. Sanitarelly considered himself in charge of an “idea shop” and had this to share: “Constitution is flexible... your point of view depends on whether you’re winning. The Constitution isn’t the real issue in this; it is how you want to run the country, and achieve national goals. The language of the Constitution is not an issue. It is what you can interpret it to mean in the light of modern needs. In talking about a ‘Constitutional crisis’ we are not grappling with the real needs of running the country but are using the issues for a self-serving purpose of striking a new balance of power, Today, the whole Constitution is up for grabs”. (Printed in The New Yorker, April 28,1973.) Well! Things haven’t changed much since President Nixon left office. We have an attorney general who might be following along the same philosophy as Sanitarelli. The grab for power during the Clinton administration and his Attorney General, Janette Reno has given us a glean into similar workings of a progressives mind. Scary! The grievances set forth within the Declaration of Independence which led to an open revolt have become ordinary behavior of government today. Our Founders knew we were born with inalienable rights and government gets its powers from the people. Government has reversed this principle. The redistributive power is not found in the Constitution. It amounts to theft. Today it is the main function of government. It is the doctrine of enumerated powers that was meant to constitute the principle defense against an overreaching government, who assumes that social ills can be remedied by more progressive gobbledygook. Article 1 Section 8 lays out the powers of our federal government. Usurpation has crept into our lives via federal abuses. There are many avenues in which this has come about. In January, 1936, Al Smith the four term governor of New York was Democratic candidate for president who ran against Herbert Hoover. He looked at the record of Franklin D. Roosevelt

and stated the New Deal was an outright betrayal of promises the Democrats made to the American people. He wrote “ Make a test for yourself. Just get the platform of the Democratic Party, and get the platform of the Socialist Party, and lay them down on your dining room table, side by side, and get a heavy lead pencil and scratch out the word Democrat, and scratch out the word Socialist and let the two platforms lay there. Then study the record of the present administration up to date. After you have done that ... pick up the platform that more nearly squares with the record, and you will put your hand on the socialist platform. You don’t dare touch the Democratic Party” Al Smith pleaded with the leaders of the Democratic Party to live up to their promises made to the people. They had won by a landslide victory during the election of 1932. Many left the Socialist party and joined the Democratic party. A vast bureaucracy was being assembled and many who left the Socialist Party were appointed to new positions. Harry Hopkins ( Soviet Spy) became a top presidential adviser. Dr. Guy Tugwell headed up FDR’s brain trust. He advocated that government should own all resources and land. The 17th Amendment has removed our senators from scrutiny of our state legislature and the people of the state. They were once considered the protector of state sovereignty. Their role has been collectivized into a national setting. Executive orders have grown more dictatorial in nature — subverting Congress. Treaties have been advanced that subdue people into a world government which are unconstitutional. We might want to get a hold of a copy of a copy of the Constitution. Study it. It is written in such a manner that all can understand its meaning. Compare it with the “Communist Manifesto”. There is none. Then compare Marxism to the current political ramifications in Washington. Especially the current administration. Communists and socialist are two sides of the same coin. Today they have adopted other titles so as not to raise alarm to their main objective. Gene F. Danforth Danbury

Belmont voters will go a special Town Meeting in August to decide whether to discontinue Mill Street (background, right) in the village as part of a revitalization project. The owner of the commercial building in the foreground says the move will devalue his property. (Laconia Daily Sun photo/Ed Engler)

BELMONT from page one with the proposed road closure. Peter McGrath, an attorney for Bill and Carolyn McDonough, the owners of the former Northway Bank building on Main Street that is now home to The Vault , a hair salon, said closing Mill Street will diminish the value of his clients property by a minimum of $80,000. He noted the removal of the street would eliminate the existing handicapped entrance for the lower portion of the building. He enclosed a memorandum from Pete Duval of a DUVALTEAM Real Estate in Concord that said the loss of the seven parking spots on Mills Street, and the loss of visibility to the office suits on the Mill Street side of the property lower the rent and resale value of the property. Selectman Ron Cormier yesterday said the town had tried twice to purchase the building from the

former owners and twice the voters rejected the warrant article — once by a margin of nine votes. The approximately $1.5-million project entails the reconstruction of Main, Mill, Center, Fuller and Sargent Streets and will involve reclamation and remediation of the pavement and sidewalks, the replacement of the water system, and landscaping, lighting and sidewalks. Cormier said the bids will be opened Tuesday afternoon by the engineering firm of Hoyle, Tanner and Associates, Inc. who will review them for completeness and accuracy and move the qualifying ones on to selectmen for the official award. Cormier said the project is funded by a combination of U.S. Department of Agriculture Community Development Block Grant, the N.H. Revolving Fund and money accrued by the town in highway improvement reserve funds from local taxes and the highway block grant.

Tilton, a benefactor of the town who provided the Town Hall and many of the statues and monuments that townspeople know so well. In the photographs are glimpses of an earlier way of life, such as a herd of cattle laying down for a rest on Main Street, their driver standing idly by. Train travel and automobiles are documented in the book, as are train collisions and vehicle accidents. One photo shows the cable-drawn ferry that predated the Winnisquam Bridge. In another picture, of the Tilton Free Camp Grounds, a sign reads “No Gypsies Allowed,” although the captions reports that none were turned away. “Around Tilton” also details historic town homesteads, industry and institutions such as the seminary, New Hampshire Veterans Home and the Tilton School. It took the team several months and countless hours to complete the project. Despite the effort, each of the trio of authors reported the project to be quite rewarding. Randall found it satisfying to mine archives when compiling captions, and in doing so, correct some urban myths about the provenance of local landmarks. “The research was a great deal of fun for me,” she said. Stone’s favorite part of the book project was, “Meeting everyone who gave up their pictures. Meeting the older generation who shared their history, that’s the joy for me, what a gift they gave us.” And for Evans, the project was a chance to explore the unique history of his new hometown, where he’s lived since 2008. “I’ve lived in the Lakes Region for 24 years. Tilton has the most fascinating history, and a character,” he said. “The characters who built this town were interesting, outstanding characters.”

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, June 23, 2012 — Page 7

LHS from page one tions are expected to be announced in the weeks ahead. Hamel said that he intends to propose that the city borrow sufficient funds to ensure the construction of the science laboratories and an expansive reconfiguration of the playing fields. He pointed out that the budget for the project includes $550,000 in contingency and recalled that when the middle school was built the contingency line was not exhausted but instead used to enhance the project. “I’m dancing right now,” Hamel said last night. “The number will depend on the contingency and the level of community support. But, whatever we do the increase in the tax rate (for 2012) will be kept to 15 cents.” Councilor Henry Lipman (Ward 3), chairman of the council’s Finance Committee, agreed that “we should do the project right the first time.” Like Hamel, he is also open to borrowing to supplement the capital campaign. “I’ll be working with the council to borrow funds to leverage the capital campaign,” he said, adding that “the number and the timing is something we need to talk about.” After visiting the high school campus twice yesterday, Hamel was especially eager to replace the six existing science laboratories on the third floor, which fall short of state standards. “When Jack Irwin was here, he recognized them as they were when he was a student,” he remarked. The gas service has been shut off and the plumbing is severely deteriorated. Only one has a window to the open air while the others ventilate into a corridor. The proposed laboratories — in space that will be abandoned by the Huot Center — will exceed state standards and offer a setting for students to pursue 21st century science, he said. The most recent estimate of the cost of the project is approximately $16.6-million while the available funding amouints to about $14.8-million. The estimate includes the base bid for

the construction of the addition to house the expanded Huot Technical Center of $9.9-million, net of $1.8-million adjustments negotiated with Harvey Construction Corporation, the general contractor, that reduced the original bid and $2.8-million in architectural, engineering and professional fees. Neither the science laboratories nor the playing fields were included in the base bid, but instead priced as alternates. The cost of constructing and equipping six science laboratories in vacated space is $883,000. Of the two options for the playing fields, the preferred plan, Plan A, would radically alter 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 an artificial turf field lined for football and other sports. The cost of Plan A is $2.6-million. In addition, both plans require bleachers and lighting, which were not included in the base bid but bid as alternates at $471,000. The available state, federal and municipal funding for the project is approximately $14.8-million. The largest share of funding consists of $7.1-million in school building aid from the state. The federal government has awarded the School District a “Qualified Zone Academy Bond” (QZAB) of $6.5-million, which is a loan bearing no interest. Altogether state and federal funding amounts to $13.6-million. In addition, USA Football awarded the school district a $50,000 grant toward the installation of artificial turf field. The balance remaining in the school facilities see next page

CURT from page 2 soon as an analyst for ESPN. He took a leave of absence from the network after 38 Studios filed for bankruptcy protection on June 7. The firm was lured to Providence from Massachusetts in 2010 after Rhode Island offered a $75 million loan guarantee. The state is working to determine how much it’s on the hook for after the company’s collapse. While he conceded that he “absolutely” was part of the reason the company failed, he said public comments made by Chafee last month questioning the firm’s solvency were harmful as the firm tried — but failed — to raise private capital to stay afloat. “I think he had an agenda,” Schilling said about Chafee. Chafee vocally opposed the state’s loan guarantee to 38 Studios when he was running for governor in 2010. But after it was a done deal, he was the company’s “biggest cheerleader,” Chafee spokeswoman Christine Hunsinger said Friday. “The success of 38 Studios would have meant success for Rhode Island through the contribution a company makes to the overall economy,” she said in a statement. “There is no victory in the failure of 38 Studios. People have lost their jobs and Rhode Island taxpayers are now potentially responsible for the repayment of tens of millions of dollars.” from preceding page lation of artificial turf field. The balance remaining in the school facilities account drawn from the school district’s contingency account will be added to bring the total $14.8 million. Hamel said “if we don’t do Plan A we’ll be sitting in the grandstand a few years from now wondering why we didn’t do it. I don’t want to cheapen this project.” He stressed that construction of the Huot Technical Center, renovations to the high school and revamping of the athletic fields would make Laconia High School a

Schilling also accused Chafee of failing to work with an investor who was willing to put $15 million to $20 million into the company to help it succeed. He said the investor walked away because of Chafee’s inaction. 38 Studios laid off its entire workforce — nearly 300 employees in Providence and more in Maryland — last month. That move came after it was more than two weeks late on a $1.1 million payment to the state; officials have said that was the first indication the company was in financial trouble. The firm had sought millions of dollars in tax credits from Rhode Island as it struggled to stay afloat, but Schilling said Friday that he wasn’t looking for a bailout. State and federal authorities, meanwhile, are investigating 38 Studios’ finances. Citizens Bank also has sued Schilling to recover $2.4 million in loans it made to 38 Studios. Schilling, who also pitched for Baltimore, Houston, Philadelphia and Arizona, won the World Series three times and is perhaps best remembered for pitching Game 6 of the 2004 American League Championship Series with an injured ankle that stained his sock with blood. Schilling said he hasn’t done anything wrong. He said he never took any money from the company, not even a salary. He said the company was close to succeeding but just couldn’t raise enough private capital. He also said he never intended to hurt the firm’s workers. “It’s been kind of a surreal 60 days or 65 days,” Schilling said. “It’s crushing and devastating to see it fail the way it did.” Schilling was asked how the company’s collapse has affected him personally. “I don’t know. ... It’s not over yet,” he said. “I would imagine the next foreseeable time in our lives is going to be consumed by this. It’s a life-changing thing.” But he added, “I’m not asking for sympathy. It was my choice.”

Led by principal who’s moving on, Laconia High students saving taxpayers big bucks by doing some renovation work themselves By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — This week, while Harvey Construction Corporation prepared to start work on the renovation and expansion of the Huot Regional Technical Education Center at the High School, Principal Steve Beals and Facilities Manager Steve Dalzell, together with high school students, began rehabilitating and reconfiguring the space made available by the project. Touring the building on what was literally his last day on the job, Beals — who is moving on to Alvirne High School in Hudson — opened the door to the gymnasium, which was piled high with furniture and equipment taken from rooms slated for renovation. “The kids — the football, baseball and lacrosse players and the musicians — moved all this stuff,” Beals said. “We had professionals move the heavy equipment from the manufacturing and automotive programs, but we did the rest ourselves.” He stressed that everything salvageable was saved to be used again. “That’s $8,000 worth of light fixtures,” he said, “that we’ll use again.” Beals began the tour where a classroom was being converted to space that will house the office, studio and operations of Lakes Region Public Access television (LRPA), which was designed by high school students in collaboration with the directors and staff of the LRPA. The space, remodeled by students supervised by staff, will have a separate entrance, yet connect to the high school. What was the office of the music department at

the High School is being transformed into the technology center for the School District where the information systems serving all five schools and the district office will be housed. The music room itself will become the art room and the vacated art room will become a computer laboratory adjacent to the computer room. Beals remarked that doors and hardware from the vacated rooms of the Huot Center are being used in the renovated and reconfigured space. “All this represents significant upgrades to the LRPA, music department, art room and computer science, thousands of square feet, at virtually no cost,” Beals said. “Two students took down a cinder block wall in the (new) music room for the cost of two sledge hammers at $12 each, two pairs of safety glasses and gloves.” Beals explained that the plumbing and heating program will be moved to space adjacent to the building trades program currently occupied by the child care program, leaving a large area for housing the Alternative School, which serves students who are unsuccessful in conventional educational settings. Returning the “Alt” to the high school campus, he said, will enhance the quality of the program, offer benefits to its students and spare the School District $30,000 in annual rent. All this shuffling of programs and renovating of space, Beals said, will significantly improve the programming at the high school. “What is truly miraculous,” he said, “is that most of what we’re doing requires some ingenuity and sweat equity.”

Hannaford fixes computer glitch that prevented customers from use cards SCARBOROUGH, Maine (AP) — Officials with the Maine-based Hannaford Supermarkets chain say they have resolved a computer glitch that made it impossible for shoppers to use debit and credit cards at most of the company’s 181 stores in the Northeast. The problem that started Thursday was resolved by Friday morning. A chain spokesman said were some incidences of slower transactions Friday, but

that they would be temporary. The problem was not related to a 2008 data breach that compromised the credit and debit card numbers of millions of customers. Signs were posted at affected stores. Scarborough-based Hannaford has stores in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and Vermont.

CLINTON from page 2 ted to ensure the equal access of women and girls to education, basic services, economic opportunities, and health care services, including addressing women’s sexual and reproductive health and their reproductive rights.” In the final draft, the stronger wording “We are committed to ensure the equal access” was switched to the weaker “We are committed to promote equal access.” The reference to reproductive rights was deleted altogether, after opposition from the G-77, a negotiating bloc of developing countries at the United Nations, and the Holy See. Odilo Pedro Scherer, special envoy of Pope Benedict XVI, reiterated the Vatican’s position that “all human life, from conception until natural death, has

the same worth and deserves the same dignity.” Leaders from other countries, including Norway, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Peru, Bolivia, Uruguay, Mexico, Iceland, Switzerland and Israel fought to keep the reference to reproductive rights, as did nongovernmental organizations promoting human rights and women’s rights. Removing references to reproductive health from the outcome document was “an unacceptable step backward that erases decades of global commitments,” said Peggy Clark, the executive vice president for policy Programs at the Aspen Institute. “The ability to choose the number, spacing and timing of children is not a luxury. It is a basic human right, one that has already been affirmed by the world community at the Cairo and Beijing conferences.”

A fast-moving fire gutted this home on Leisure Lane early yesterday morning. The fire burned initially with such intensity it partially melted the siding on the home to the left. (Laconia Daily Sun photo/Gail Ober)

Early morning fire guts Belmont mobile home BELMONT — No one was injured in an early morning fire that gutted a mobile home at 23 Leisure Drive early yesterday morning. Fire Chief David Parenti said the blaze was reported by homeowner Vincent Mulligan at 1:32 a.m. He was walking his dog and returned to find his house ablaze. Lt. Greg Bavis was the first to arrive and said as he approached from Gilmanton Road, said the smoke was “banked down and blowing across the road” making it very difficult to see. Bavis called for first alarm that ultimately brought firefighters and equipment from Laconia, Gilford, Tilton-Northfield to the fire while Gilmanton fire-

fighters covered the Belmont station. “I had told my command staff to be mindful of the heat and call for a first alarm if they get anything big,” Parenti said. “We went through people pretty quickly.” Parenti said firefighters knocked down the blaze in about 20 minutes and reported the fire under control at 2:17 a.m. Firefighters left the scene at 4:21 a.m. Parenti said the cause of the fire is undetermined and not suspicious. No one was injured. He said there were no smoke detectors in the home and had Mulligan been sleeping when the blaze started the outcome could have been tragic. Mulligan is being assisted by the American Red Cross. — Gail Ober

UNH from page 3 employment and other economic indicators, so I’m really happy with this,” he said. Huddleston, who toured the Albany Engineering Composites facility, said the report used very conservative assumptions in calculating how much the university contributes to the state through direct expenditures, employment and the “ripple effect” of that spending. The total represents 2.3 percent of New Hampshire’s $62 billion Gross State Product.

The university system’s collaboration with Albany, in both providing skilled workers and research assistance, is a small part of the university’s overall strategy of reaching out to the business community, he said. That mission is in keeping with the university’s founding as a land-grant college dedicated to strengthening agriculture and “mechanic arts” in the state, he said. “While Albany is a long way from those kinds of enterprises, in effect it’s the same kind of relationship that we try to forge,” he said.

Jurriens pitches Braves to 4-1 win over Red Sox BOSTON (AP) — Jair Jurrjens made an impressive return to the majors by allowing one run on three hits and shut down the hot-hitting Boston Red Sox, leading the Atlanta Braves to a 4-1 win on Friday night. Jurrjens, an All-Star last season when he topped the Braves with 13 wins, worked 7 2-3 innings and left after allowing an RBI double by Daniel Nava that drove in Will Middlebrooks, who led off the eighth with a double. Boston’s only other hit was a clean single to left field by Adrian Gonzalez in the first. Jurrjens was demoted to the minors on April 23 after going 0-2 with a 9.37 ERA in four starts. He was called up Friday and retired eight consecutive batters before Middlebrooks’ double that followed two innings in which he threw a total of 14 pitches. He also allowed runners on a walk and a hit batsman. Craig Kimbrel pitched a perfect ninth for his 21st save in 22 opportunities.

Andrelton Simmons drove in two runs for Atlanta and Jason Heyward had two doubles and a single, improving to 7 for 11 in his last three games. The Braves won their third straight game after losing seven of eight. Boston’s five-game winning streak ended one day after it completed a three-game sweep of the Miami Marlins in which it scored 28 runs. The start of the game was delayed 1 hour, 14 minutes by rain. Roger Clemens sat in the first row above the Green Monster in left field. He received a subdued mixture of cheers and boos when shown on the center-field scoreboard after the third inning with the words “Welcome Back Roger Clemens” on the screen. The former Red Sox pitcher was acquitted Monday on all six counts that he lied to Congress when he denied using performance-enhancing drugs.

SANDUSKY from page 2 adjourned, loud cheers could be heard from a couple hundred people gathered outside the courthouse as word quickly spread that Sandusky had been convicted. The crowd included victim advocates and local residents with their kids. Many held up their smartphones to take pictures as people filtered out of the building. As Sandusky was placed in the cruiser to be taken to jail, someone yelled at him to “rot in hell.” Others hurled insults and he shook his head no in response. Defense attorney Joe Amendola was interrupted by cheers from the crowd on courthouse steps when he said, “The sentence that Jerry will receive will be a life sentence.” Eight young men testified in a central Pennsylvania courtroom about a range of abuse, from kissing and massages to groping, oral sex and anal rape. For two other alleged victims, prosecutors relied on testimony from a university janitor and then-graduate assistant Mike McQueary, whose account of a sexual encounter between Sandusky and a boy of about 10 ultimately led to the Paterno’s dismissal and the university president’s ouster. Sandusky did not take the stand in his own defense. After the verdict was announced, defense attorney Karl Rominger said it was “a tough case” with a lot of charges and that an appeal was certain. He said the defense team “didn’t exactly have a lot of time to prepare.” Amendola said: “The jury acted in good faith. The jury acted on the evidence presented to it. We had a good jury.” Pennsylvania Attorney General Linda Kelly thanked the accusers who testified, calling them “brave men.” She said she hoped the verdict “helps these victims

heal ... and helps other victims of abuse to come forward.” She said: “One of the recurring themes in this case was, ‘Who would believe a kid?’ The answer is ‘We here in Bellefonte, Pa., would believe a kid.” The ex-coach had repeatedly denied the allegations, and his defense suggested that his accusers had a financial motive to make up stories, years after the fact. His attorney also painted Sandusky as the victim of overzealous police investigators who coached the alleged victims into giving accusatory statements. But jurors believed the testimony that, in the words of lead prosecutor Joseph McGettigan III, Sandusky was a “predatory pedophile.” One accuser testified that Sandusky molested him in the locker-room showers and in hotels while trying to ensure his silence with gifts and trips to bowl games. He also said Sandusky had sent him “creepy love letters.” Another spoke of forced oral sex and instances of rape in the basement of Sandusky’s home, including abuse that left him bleeding. He said he once tried to scream for help, knowing that Sandusky’s wife was upstairs, but figured the basement must be soundproof. Another, a foster child, said Sandusky warned that he would never see his family again if he ever told anyone what happened. And just hours after the case went to jurors, lawyers for one of Sandusky’s six adopted children, Matt, said he had told authorities that his father abused him.

Proprietor of new Belmont baking company just can’t shake her family’s love affair with the kitchen By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

BELMONT — Debbie Cousineau grew up in a catering family. “On your 13th birthday, you got a cake. The next day you got your butt in the kitchen.” With many siblings working in the family business, Cousineau had to find her niche, which turned out to be baking. As adulthood approached, though, she turned toward the world of marketing, where she worked at a desk and didn’t go home with flour in her hair. But the world of baking wasn’t through with her. Cousineau, through no fault of her own, started a baking company AbracaDebra’s at the end of 2011. Originally working out of her Manchester home, she recently moved into the basement of the Osborne’s Agway gift shop building in Winnisquam, which had previously been the home of a catering company. Despite her near lack of marketing or business planning, she finds herself baking like a mad woman, pulling all-night shifts and wondering how she was going to keep up with the growing demand.

Debbie Cousineau didn’t plan to start her own baking business, demand for her products grew like a word-of-mouth wildfire. She now operates AbracaDebra’s out of the basement of a building in the Osborne’s Agway in Winnisquam. (Laconia Daily Sun photo/Adam Drapcho)

A year ago, though, Cousineau wasn’t working at all, having left work to be a full-time mom. The only baking she did was for her family — and if there were leftover cookies or an extra pie, she’d give them to her daughter’s bus driver. That proved to be her undoing — the bus driver, a kind woman, cajoled Cousineau into baking several pies for her Thanksgiving gathering. Her pies were powerful advertising, and by the next major holiday several more

people wanted to buy her products. “I was so busy the week before Christmas I didn’t sleep for three days,” she said. The orders continued to flow in, this time for Super Bowl parties. With the interest growing, and her daughter old enough for her to go back to work, she figured, “It’s time to go big or go home — word of mouth was just spreading.” The bakery market see next page

from preceding page gest fans put her in touch with the Osborne family, which operates Agway stores in Concord and Hooksett, was preparing to open a new store in the Winnisquam area of Belmont, and had a fully-furnished kitchen they were looking to rent. Along with a kitchen full of industrial-grade equipment, the lease deal also came with three big customers. Cousineau bakes pies, muffins and cupcakes to be sold at all three of the Osborne’s Agway stores. She will also add items such as cookies, brownies, whoopie pies and sticky buns. AbracaDebra’s will also take custom orders, and Cousineau said she’s willing to take a crack at whatever a customer desires. “A lot of this is researching old family recipes, which is a lot of fun.” When possible, she plans to use locally-sourced products, such as eggs, apples and maple syrup. “I’m looking for other local suppliers,” she said. She’s done a vegan cake already, and added that she can do gluten-free items for customers who wish. Explaining her sudden success, she thinks her business is one that has benefited from the sluggish economy. People are restraining from costly indulgences but still want a little sweetness in their lives. “There aren’t buying the expensive homes, the expensive cars, but they treat themselves to a $3 cupcake.” Cousineau originally planned to renovate the kitchen and open it to the public as a retail shop, but decided that current demand is all that she can handle for now. After all, she wasn’t even intending to start a business, it was the business that found her. The demand appeared as if by magic, as the business name implies. For more information, visit

EURO from page one Reserve and at the Treasury Department in the Obama administration. “The tone has changed, in part because the German economy has not been doing as well recently.” Merkel has come under rising pressure to give ground on key pro-growth measures. “We say that growth and solid financials are two sides of a coin,” she said. “Solid financials are not sufficient.” Monti, who met with his fellow leaders at a government villa in Rome, is trying to build a bridge between Merkel’s insistence on fiscal discipline and the focus on growth by recently elected Hollande. He acknowledged that steps taken so far have not been sufficient, and that markets and European Union citizens alike need to view the euro currency as “irreversible.” “We maintain that if four countries as important and diversified as ours can find a convergent line, this can help force a strong consensus at the EU Council,” Monti told a closing press conference. Monti has warned of severe consequences for the 17 countries that use the euro and the world economy if next week’s summit fails. “A large part of Europe would find itself having to continue to put up with very high interest rates, that would then impact on the states, and also indirectly on firms. This is the direct opposite of what is needed for economic growth,” Monti said in an interview with six European newspapers published Friday.

Lucky duck Gary Drake and Cale Laurent (pictured) of Drake Electric were working at Laconia High School on Friday morning when they discovered a duckling that had fallen through a grated area and become trapped. With the aid of a ladder, the bird was rescued and has been named “Lucky Drake” by school personnel. The duckling is said to resting comfortably while trying to recover from his traumatic adventure.

Lakes Region Real Estate Market Report / Roy Sanborn

I’m betting we’ll make it to 100 one month this summer It was 143 races since Dale Earnhardt Junior had won a NASCAR race. He finally broke that drought this past Sunday in Michigan by dominating the entire race from start to finish. I know many home owners aren’t NASCAR fans and they really don’t care who wins. I just point this out as every once in a while droughts are broken. You know like the Red Sox finally winning the World Series or a horse winning the Triple Crown. It has also been a very, very long time (2006, I believe) since we have seen over a hundred homes sell in one month in the communities covered by this report. Well, we didn’t make 100, but we did come close

last month with 97 sales at an average price of $251,717. That is a 67-percent increase over the 58 transactions last May at an average sales price of $275,900. On a rolling 12 month basis ending on June 30, 2012 there have been 954 single family homes sold at an average price of $301,878. For the 12 month period ending June 30, 2011 there were 745 sales at an average of $315,291. That’s a 15-percent increase in the number of transactions over the 12 month period but a 4.25-percent drop in the average sales price. While we hate to see the average price drop more, it is great to see that the number of sales are

up. We desperately need to get rid of this inventory. So what sold in May? Better yet, what sold quickly? A number of homes sold in less than 10 days. For example, a move in ready three bedroom, two bath cape, with 1,580-square-feet of space built in 1950 at 85 Dartmouth Street in Laconia sold for $147,900 in just five days. That was slightly higher than the $144,900 asking price and was likely a result of multiple offers or that the buyer was asking for seller concessions of some kind. Anyway, the home had a nice .29-acre lot, a new metal roof, partially finished basement, screened porch, and a fireplace in the living room. This was a bank owned property but when they are nice they sell quick. It is currently assessed at $177,300. Someone got a great deal I think... Another bank owned property at 57 Cottonwood Trail in Gilford also went under agreement in just 10 days. This three bedroom, two bath contemporary was built in 2003 and has just over 2,000-squarefeet of living space. Although it was bank owned, it received fresh paint and carpets to help the home show better. It obviously helped. It has a large living room with vaulted ceilings, fireplace, and loft area, a master suite, a full walk out but unfinished basement, and a two car garage. It was listed at $219,900 and sold for $221,000. It has a current tax assessment of $224,800. Nice house... Down on Sawyer Lake in Gilmanton at 40 Hemlock Drive there is a happy new homeowner that jumped on this waterfront property after only 10 days on the market. He got it just in time for summer fun. This home was built in 1989 and has three bedrooms, two baths, and 1,992-square-feet of living on three levels. It has a remodeled kitchen with stainless appliances, laminate flooring, and vaulted ceilings. It has a finished basement with knotty pine walls and stained concrete flooring. The home has large decks to enjoy the great views, 111 feet of frontage, and a dock. It was listed for $299,000 and sold at $289,000 which is just a bit above the $230,500 assessed value. This was a nice waterfront on a nice little lake and probably well worth the price. On the upper end of the spectrum, the waterfront property at 13 Nelson’s Pine Point in Alton sold after only eight days on the market. To be fair, this home was offered last year for three months at $1.275-million and re-listed this season at the same price but found a buyer for $975,000 in short order. This vintage 1920’s lake house has 2,294-square-feet of space, four bedrooms, two baths, and eat in kitchen, a living room with a wood fireplace, and screened porch. The real draw though was the .31 acre lot with 362-feet of frontage, the two bay boathouse, docks, and fabulous views of Alton Bay and the Ossipee Mountains. Somehow, I suspect that there might be a new home planned for this spot. The current assessment is $956,500. There were a few others that sold fast as well: 68 Walker Street in Laconia was offered at $169,900 and sold after just six days for full price (assessed at $175,500), 1148 NH Route 140 in Gilmanton was offered at $179,900 and sold for $169,250 after five days (assessed for $184,600), and 32 Lewis Street in Laconia was offered at $465,000 and sold for $430,000 after nine days (assessed at $487,000). All this just goes to show that you can sell your home quickly if it is priced right and that Dale Earnhardt Jr. can win a NASCAR race. Now we need to concentrate on that elusive 100 sales in a month! I’m betting we will make it this summer. Log on to my blog at for all the latest real estate news and listings.

Laconia Historical & Museum Society recognizes Revolutionary War soldier

LACONIA — On Sunday, June 17, the anniversary of the Battle at Bunker Hill, Laconia Historical and Museum Society recognized Samuel Jewett who fought at the Battle of Bunker Hill. The Battle of Bunker Hill occurred during the Siege of Boston early in the American Revolutionary War. While working on the transcription project for the Day Book of Jeremiah Smith Jewett which was released in print in August, 2011, Ms. Polidoro discovered that there was a Laconia Resident who fought in that Battle. Samuel Jewett – Grandfather to Jeremiah Smith Jewett. In Mr. Jewett’s journal he makes the following recollection – “We went up into the Laconia Historical and Museum Society Executive Director, Brenda Bunker Hill Monument.

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis “you” to the world. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The conflict of others has an impact on your ability to do your work. You may not be directly involved, and yet the tension is an impediment. You’ll defuse it by secretly wishing everyone around you well. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Simple, inexpensive improvements give you a big uplift. Cleaning and reorganizing feel like the means to an end, but actually, they are beautiful processes in and of themselves. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Most of the day will be spent chasing a dream. As your sign mate Benjamin Franklin pointed out, “Happiness springs immediately from the mind.” AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You may be uncharacteristically sensitive this morning and will need to be extra mindful about protecting your interests in order to ensure that you work and play well with others. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You will ignite the passions of others. The sun and your guiding planet Neptune are in the kind of favorable position that keeps the inspiration flowing through you all day long. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 23). You’ll find security and a sense of joy as you spend time on home and hearth in the next three weeks. Your improvements have long-term effects. You’ll like how a relationship evolves through August. November brings your chance to go for a position that rarely opens up. A windfall comes in July, September and May. Aquarius and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 1, 24, 22 and 5.


ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll enter into a new arrangement with a sunny, shiny attitude. This is uncharted territory, so you get to make up the rules that will be followed by you and your successors for years to come. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Others will be drawn in by your warmth and charm. Though you’d love to be able to accommodate everyone, there’s a limited number of people you can have close to you at one time. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Are manners going out of style? So many people forget to add the “please” when they are speaking with clerks, waiters, family and angels. Yes, even the angels respond with more warmth when graciously addressed. CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s like you’re the guest of honor at a party today with the best view in the restaurant of your life. Also, you feel entitled to order what you really want from the universe because it’s your special day. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A cycle of goodness begins with you today. You’ll go out of your way to help someone and make that person’s life better. This in turn makes you feel better, stronger and more positive and loving. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll put all the happiness you can into the present moment. This isn’t accomplished through planning; it happens through noticing the lovely details that float up to the surface of your awareness. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It may feel like you have too many people who need you and want your attention now. An equal balance of time spent catering to your own needs will put you in a position to deliver the best version of

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Saturday, June 23, the 175th day of 2012. There are 191 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On June 23, 1812, Britain, unaware that America had declared war against it five days earlier, rescinded its policy on neutral shipping, a major issue of contention between the two countries. The same day, the British frigate HMS Belvidera came under attack from the USS President and the USS Congress in the North Atlantic; the Belvidera managed to escape. On this date: In 1757, forces of the East India Company led by Robert Clive won the Battle of Plassey, which effectively marked the beginning of British colonial rule in India. In 1860, a congressional resolution authorized creation of the United States Government Printing Office, which opened the following year. In 1931, aviators Wiley Post and Harold Gatty took off from New York on a round-the-world flight that lasted eight days and 15 hours. In 1947, the Senate joined the House in overriding President Harry S. Truman’s veto of the Taft-Hartley Act, designed to limit the power of organized labor. In 1961, the Antarctic Treaty, intended to ensure that the continent would be used only for peaceful purposes, came into force. In 1969, Warren E. Burger was sworn in as chief justice of the United States by the man he was succeeding, Earl Warren. In 1972, President Richard Nixon and White House chief of staff H.R. Haldeman discussed a plan to use the CIA to obstruct the FBI’s Watergate investigation. (Revelation of the tape recording of this conversation sparked Nixon’s resignation in 1974.) In 1985, all 329 people aboard an Air India Boeing 747 were killed when the plane crashed into the Atlantic Ocean near Ireland because of a bomb believed to have been planted by Sikh separatists. In 2005, a divided U.S. Supreme Court, in Kelo v. City of New London, ruled that governments may seize property for private development projects. One year ago: Republicans pulled out of debtreduction talks led by Vice President Joe Biden, blaming Democrats for demanding tax increases as part of a deal rather than accepting more than $1 trillion in cuts to Medicare and other government programs. “Columbo” actor Peter Falk died in Beverly Hills, Calif., at age 83. Today’s Birthdays: Singer Diana Trask is 72. Musical conductor James Levine (luh-VYN’) is 69. Rhythm-and-blues singer Rosetta Hightower (The Orlons) is 68. Actor Ted Shackelford is 66. Actor Bryan Brown is 65. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is 64. Actor Jim Metzler is 61. “American Idol” judge Randy Jackson is 56. Actress Frances McDormand is 55. Rock musician Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth) is 50. Actor Paul La Greca is 50. Rhythm-and-blues singer Chico DeBarge is 42. Actress Selma Blair is 40. Rock singer KT Tunstall is 37. Rhythm-and-blues singer Virgo Williams (Ghostowns DJs) is 37. Singersongwriter Jason Mraz is 35. Actress Melissa Rauch (TV: “The Big Bang Theory”) is 32. Rock singer Duffy is 28. Country singer Katie Armiger is 21.

Dear Annie: I am 28 years old, and one of my friends recently was diagnosed with cancer. While I’m thankful to have known several cancer survivors, I am now at an age where some of my childhood playmates and current peers might be diagnosed with this disease in the near future. How can I best provide support for cancer victims in an appropriate manner? I’ve tried to treat my friend the same as always, but I’m not sure that’s always the right response. I couldn’t ignore his hair loss after chemotherapy, but I also wasn’t comfortable teasing him about it as I might have in other circumstances. I did some research and learned that losing hair could be a good sign that the chemo is working, but I wasn’t sure how to express that. I know cancer victims often need help around the house or with errands, so I’ve made myself available to get groceries, but I’m not sure if it’s enough or too much. How do I know if he wants to discuss the cancer and is waiting for me to say something? Or maybe he is tired of people asking him questions. Do you have any resources you could offer to help friends of those with cancer in navigating this disease? I’d greatly appreciate it if there was a list of do’s and don’ts. -- Clueless on Cancer Etiquette Dear Clueless: You sound like a wonderful, compassionate friend. The American Cancer Society ( offers a helpful list that includes: Take your cues from the person with cancer. Some people are very private, while others will openly talk about their illness. Don’t feel that cancer is the only topic of conversation you can have. Talk about other things, too. Keep your relationship as normal and balanced as possible. Include your friend in usual projects or social events. Let him be the one to tell you if the commitment is too much to manage. Expect

your friend to have good days and bad, emotionally and physically. Respect his decision about how the cancer will be treated, even if you disagree. Listen without always feeling that you have to respond. Greater patience and compassion are called for during times like these. Offer to help in concrete, specific ways. Don’t be afraid to hug or touch your friend if that was a part of your friendship before the illness. Don’t offer advice unless it is asked for. Don’t be judgmental. It’s normal for the person with cancer to be quieter than usual, to need time alone, and to be angry at times. But you do not need to put up with serious displays of temper or mood swings, or accept disruptive or abusive behavior just because someone is ill. Try not to be patronizing or use phrases such as, “I can imagine how you feel,” because unless you have had cancer, you cannot know how he feels. Here are some additional suggestions: Send cards and emails to let him know you are thinking of him, but make sure he knows you don’t expect a reply. Phone calls are OK, but a ringing phone can also wake him. If he has a partner, lend your support and attention to that person, as well. If he has kids, offer to take them out so he can discuss his condition openly with doctors or partners. Offer to inform friends and relatives of the news. Don’t ask for too much detail or explanation. Don’t tell him about other people who have had his type of cancer. Don’t urge him to “stay positive” or tell him “it will be fine.” That can frustrate his need to express himself honestly. Don’t offer to bring books about cancer unless he specifi cally asks for them. Try to simply be yourself when you talk to your friend. What matters is that you show you care by being available, offering support and listening.

The business will continue to be affiliated with Associated Grocers of New England, which will help assure it can offer the kind of variety and diversity generally found only in larger stores. “We are pleased to see this landmark business being continued as a cornerstone of the community,” said Leon Parker, president of NHBS. “The community store provides more than food. It often is a central gathering spot for neighbors to see each other and share news.” NHBS has been selling convenience stores since it was founded in the mid-1970s by Stewart Lamprey. “Community convenience stores for sale generate approximately 14% of our annual buyer inquiries,” said John Howe, vice president of the firm. “This year is shaping up to be strong. We have more businesses under agreement or sold at this point in the year than all of last year.” Peoples United Bank of Concord provided financing for the project, coordinated by Loan Officer Peter Giorno. New Hampshire Business Sales, based in Pembroke, is the state’s premier business brokerage firm. The company has assisted owners of privatelyheld NH businesses in valuing, marketing and selling their businesses since 1976. The firm’s associates have a variety of business backgrounds and ownership experience. Associates work from offices around the state.
