GILFORD — At least 150 people waited as many as three hours yesterday afternoon for a chance at one of eight jobs offer by central New Hampshire’s largest cable television, Internet access provider. For Ginger Fitts of Laconia, this week marks her 16th consecutive month of being out of full-time work and her third job fair. “This is the first time I’ve ever been out of work this long,” she said. Held at the Gunstock Inn, the MetroCast job fair was looking for customer service representatives, technical support representatives, a trainer and at least one engineer for their Belmont and Rochester centers. Fitts, who said she has been able to stay barely financially afloat with a series of part-time jobs, was still able to crack a few jokes and be positive while she and six others at their table waited for a personal interview. Around the room, the mood was generally much more somber. For the most part, job seekers, most of them clutching manilla envelopes holding oft-rewritten resumes, stared straight ahead or quietly conversed with one of their neighbors — he or she also quietly waiting and hoping for a full-time job with benefits. Many asked not to be identified by name and some said they were working part-time and didn’t wish to risk what little they already had. In the adjoining room, others sat in one-on-one interviews with employees brought by MetroCast from their other offices.

U.S. & other countries plan to release 60M barrels of reserve oil to drive price downward

NEW YORK (AP) — The United States and other nations that depend on oil imports will release and sell 60 million barrels of crude from emergency stocks in an effort to ease the strain of high oil prices on the global economy. The release by the International Energy Agency, a group of more than two dozen countries, covers only what the world uses roughly every 16 hours. But it was enough to send oil prices lower, at least for the moment. In addition to helping the struggling economies of the U.S. and Europe, analysts said the move was meant as a rebuke to OPEC, which has refused to increase oil production to bring down prices. It will be the largest sale of crude ever from world strategic reserves and only the third since the IEA was formed in 1974 after the Arab oil embargo. The IEA released oil in 2005 after Hurricane see OIL page 8

SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) — As the FBI chased leads on two continents, Boston mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger spent nearly all of his 16 years on the lam in this quiet seaside city, passing himself off as just another elderly retiree, albeit one who kept a .357 Magnum and more than 100 rounds of ammunition in his modest apartment. Bulger — the FBI’s most-wanted man and a feared underworld figure linked to 19 murders — was captured Wednesday after one of the biggest manhunts in U.S. history. His undoing may have been his impeccably groomed girlfriend. Earlier this week, after years of frustration, the FBI put out a series of daytime TV announcements with photos of Bulger’s blond live-in companion, Catherine Greig. The announcements pointed out that Greig was known to frequent beauty salons and have her teeth cleaned once a month. Two days later, the campaign produced a tip that led agents to the two-bedroom apartment three blocks from the Pacific Ocean where Bulger and Greig lived, authorities said. The FBI would not give any details about the tip. The 81-year-old boss of South Boston’s vicious Winter Hill Gang — a man who authorities say would not hesitate to shoot someone between the eyes — was lured outside the building and captured without resistance. Greig, 60, was also arrested. Neighbors were stunned to learn they had been living in the same building as the man who was the model for Jack Nicholson’s ruthless crime boss in the 2006 Martin Scorsese movie “The Departed.” The arrest closed one chapter in a case that scandalized the FBI.

Obama says gay couples deserve same rights but stops short of marriage endorsement

NEW YORK (AP) — Treading carefully, President Barack Obama praised New York state lawmakers who were debating landmark legislation Thursday to legalize gay marriage, saying that’s what democracy’s all about. But as expected, the president stopped short of embracing same-sex marriage himself, instead asking gay and lesbian donors for patience. “I believe that gay couples deserve the same legal rights as every other couple in this country,” the president said at a Manhattan fundraiser, his first geared specifically to the gay community. Coincidentally, the long-planned event occurred just as lawmakers in Albany were debating legislation that would make New York the sixth and by far the largest state to legalize gay marriage. That served to spotlight the president’s own views on same-sex marriage, a sore point with gay supporters who’ve otherwise warmed to Obama. The president has said his views are “evolving,” but for now he supports civil unions, not same-sex marriage. Obama said progress will be slower than some people want, but he added that he was confident that there will be a day “when every single American, gay or straight or lesbian or bisexual or transgender, is free to live and love as they see fit. “Traditionally marriage has been decided by the states and right now I understand there’s a little debate going on here in New

2 Concord cops hit by car while on worksite detail

CONCORD (AP) — Two Concord police officers have been hurt by a driver who lost control of his car after spilling coffee. State police say the officers were working a detail at a construction site on Loudon Road on Wednesday night that required one lane to be closed. Sergeant Cori Casey and Master Patrol Officer Eric Crane were standing in the closed lane when a car driven by 35-year-old William Soler struck them just before 11 p.m. One officer was thrown to the pavement, while the other ended up on the hood of the car. Both were treated at the hospital and released. Soler told investigators he panicked after spilling coffee down his front, and hit the accelerator. He was not charged but the incident remains under investigation.

York,” he said to laughter. New York’s lawmakers, he said, are “doing exactly what democracies are supposed to do.” Debate on the measure continued into the night at the statehouse, and the outcome was uncertain. As Obama spoke a handful of people shouted out “marriage!” And Obama said, “I heard you guys.” He never directly mentioned gay marriage. Obama said there were those who shouted at him at events about other causes of the gay community, such as the need for anti-hate crimes legislation and for the repeal of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” ban on openly gay military service, and both of those have since been achieved. Obama also has won favor by instructing the Justice Department to stop defending in court a law defining marriage as between a man and a woman. Obama told of receiving a letter last year from a teenager in a small town. He said the boy was a

senior in high school who was gay and was afraid to come out. The boy wondered to the president why gays shouldn’t be equal like everyone else. “So, yes, we have more work to do,” Obama said. “Yes, we have more progress to make. Yes, I expect continued impatience with me on occasion.” He said teenagers such as the one who wrote to him “remind me that there should be impatience when it comes to the fight for basic equality. We’ve made enormous advances just in these last two and half years. But there’s still young people out there looking for us to do more.” In a direct appeal for votes, Obama said: “With your help, if you keep up the fight, if you will devote your time and your energies to this campaign one more time, I promise you we will write another chapter in that story. ... I’ll be standing there, right there with you.” see OBAMA page 14

Jim Hightower

More Texas snake oil Step right up, ladies and gentlemen, and get your ticket to see “Rick the Wonder Worker!” Texas Gov. Rick Perry is less than revered back home, where he is widely ridiculed as Gov. Good Hair. So he’s now on the road with a traveling medicine show, billing himself as the “Texas Miracle Man.” From New York to New Orleans, he’s been wowing the Republican hard core by telling astounding tales of his jobcreating prowess in our state, suggesting he can do for America what he’s done for Texas. Such GOP sparklies as Rush Limbaugh and Newt Gingrich are hailing the economic wunderkind, and his roadshow spiel has prompted some party stalwarts to tout him for the presidency, hoping he can do for America what he has done for Texas. As a giddy New Yorker put it, “We want a piece of that!” Hold it right there. First, while the Texas unemployment rate of 8-percent is 1-percent lower than the national rate, 23 other states are doing even better — including New York. Also, his self-touted record of job growth is essentially the same as Democratic Gov. Ann Richards produced and far lower than what Texas had under George W.’s governorship. Most damning, however, is that Perry-jobs are really “jobettes,” offering low pay, no benefits and no upward mobility. In fact, under Rickonomics, Texas has added more minimum wage jobs than all other states combined! After 10 years in office, Gov. Perry presides over a state that has more people in poverty and more without health coverage than any other. Meanwhile, the Miracle Man has dug Texas into one of the deepest budget holes in the country — $27-billion short of the money needed to cover the same miserly level of state services Texans now get. Although his party controls the state Senate and has a supermajority in the House, he was unable even to get a budget passed in the regular legislative session, forcing him to convene a costly special session. His plan is to cut $4-billion and as many as 100,000 teachers from our public education system, even as school enrollment is growing exponentially. Do Republicans really want a piece of this kind of “leadership”? PR hype aside, Perry is so embarrassingly inept at governing that he has lately turned to prayer as his offi-

cial solution for all problems. Interestingly, the 1836 Republic of Texas Constitution banned “ministers of the gospel” from holding office. Our problem these days, however, is not ministers in office, but politicians posing as ministers, literally seizing the pulpit to preach and proselytize. Perry’s praying is not quiet and contemplative, but garish public displays — Elmer Gantryism in action. In April, with a biblical-level drought and some 800 wildfires ravaging the state, his gubernatorial response was to proclaim three “Days of Prayer for Rain.” The days came and went, but no rain. Presumably, Rick was praying up a storm, but not a drop fell from the heavens. Undeterred, the gubernatorial padre simply doubled down on prayer politics. Proclaiming Aug. 6 as a “Day of Prayer and Fasting,” he has invited all other governors to join him in Houston for a seven-hour prayera-palooza, dubbed “The Response.” It’s billed as “a nondemoninational, apolitical, Christian” event to unify all Americans by calling upon Jesus “to guide us through unprecedented struggles.” Wait ... Jesus? What about all those Americans who’re Jewish, Muslim, Hindu or other faiths? No room at the inn for them? Adding to this PR fiasco, Perry’s co-sponsor for The Response is the American Family Association — a Mississippi-based extremist outfit so infamous for bashing gays and Muslims that a watchdog group has characterized it as a hate group. So far, there’s been no rush of governors RSVPing. The governor’s spokeswoman loudly insists that his Prayerfest “doesn’t have anything to do with (Perry’s presidential ambitions)” — which, of course, means that it does. But if this political show is even too hokey for Republican governors, I doubt that God will be tuning in. Toward the end of George W.’s right-wing presidency, national columnist and Texas icon Molly Ivins wrote, “Next time I tell you someone from Texas should not be elected president of the United States, please pay attention.” (Jim Hightower has been called American’s most popular populist. The radio commentator and former Texas Commissioner of Agriculture is author of seven books, including “There’s Nothing In the Middle of Road but Yellow Stripes and Dead Armadillos” and his new work, “Swim Against the Current: Even Dead Fish Can Go With The Flow”.)

straw. It was a load of B.S., as usual. He belongs in the Islamic world. He insults non-union, moral-minded and freedom loving American people. If he has all the right answers he should then run for presidents. He and Obama would be great bed partners. We don’t want to read that crap anymore. Liam McCoy

LETTERS Inflation that Obama is creating is going to ‘tax’ every one of us To the editor, Tax (noun: A sum of money demanded by a government for its support.) — The Random House Dictionary of the English Language. In 2008 President Obama campaigned on a promise that he would not raise taxes on incomes of $250,000 or less. In his first year in office the president signed a stimulus bill that spent close to $900-billion dollars. In that year he also spent TARP Funds on an automobile industry bailout. There were other bailouts as well, the banking industry and other financial institutions benefited from taxpayer dollars. In March of 2010 the president and his party passed the largest legislative overhaul of the US health care system in the history of United States at a cost of many hundreds of billions of dollars to be spent over the life of the program. For all intents and purposes, Obamacare is more than just a mandate to purchase a private sector product, (an unprecedented command by the federal government to citizens ordering them to buy a service or pay a penalty) it is an enormous new entitlement and expense for taxpayers. These additional expenditures were heaped atop a federal budget that was already running record deficits. As a result of all government obligations the annual budget over the last two years is roughly $3-trillion dollars in the red. The Social Security “trust” fund (no self respecting attorney could call it an actual trust as its creation and administration fall far below fiduciary standards) is unable to meet current obligations, which means that benefits are being paid, not exclusively from trust resources, but from general revenues as well. The Federal Reserve, our nations central banking authority, has reacted to our government’s profligate spending by monetizing government debt via “quantitative easing”, which is a fancy way of saying it is printing trillions of dollars that are not backed by any hard assets and circulating them, thus stoking inflation. Anyone who denies that we are in a current infla-

tionary spiral has not recently purchased gasoline or groceries. Why would the Federal Reserve monetize our debt? Well it is a methodology for reducing the cost of the borrowing for which our government and some ofits people seem to have developed an addiction. If the Fed decreases the value of the currency through inflation, theoretically our debt becomes less a percentage of the overall money supply in the long term. Monetization, however, costs us taxpayers who have prudently saved as the value of savings will be decreased by a quantitatively eased dollar and the intentionally inflationary reaction it creates. As well, the value of many commodities is artificially distorted as they go up in price. Meanwhile, wages remain static due to an economy teetering on the edge of recession. In stagflationary scenario economists call that “wage stickiness”. That’s where taxation comes in. When government intentionally spends money it doesn’t have and makes promises that mathematics shows it can’t possibly keep, and when its central bank reacts by monetizing debt, the dollars you have saved for a rainy day become less valuable, as it will take many more of them to purchase the gasoline, groceries, and other thingsyou need. And that my fellow citizen is a tax, for it is your government’s policy (and its policy exclusively) that is devaluing the thing you have saved and increasing the cost of the things you need. It is demanding its sum for its support and it is paying for it through its central bank’s policy of inflation at your direct expense. The next time you are told that President Obama has kept his promise not to raise taxes on those of us who make less than $250,000 make sure you treat that statement with all the respect it so richly deserves. The inflation that his spending has ignited is taxing us all just as surely as if the government was taking 5 or 10 percent more of your paycheck each week. Charlie Gallagher Gilford

LETTERS My dream for education is about letting parents decide what’s best To the editor, In response to Mr. E. Scott Cracraft’s June 22 letter to the editor I would like to say, Mr. Cracraft, you are very confusing! I assume that your “dream school” letter was prompted by some dissatisfaction with the current state of public schooling. Yet, you want to punish parents who manage to escape that system by making them pay twice! You say home school parents need more regulating and insinuate an inclination towards child abuse. You specify the need for tighter regulations on Christian schools and their supposed tendency towards “paddling.” How would any of these things help public schools? Next, you claim one problem with public schools is special interest control of school boards, but you make no mention of teachers’ unions and their influence. Nor do you mention how local control has been insidiously eroded by the federal government. Nor do you mention the decades long implementation of progressive educational ideas in our schools as propagated by our teaching colleges. Are your suggestions for an improved education system reasonable? Would more taxes, less corporate sponsorship, more children’s rights,

and less competition in sports really help the public schools? Would teaching sexual ethics, registering students to vote, tightening regulations on private and home schools, and ignoring American exceptionalism be the right prescription? I don’t suppose you would agree that despite sugar-coated intentions, government and union-controlled schools don’t produce good results. No. I suspect you believe as most progressives believe that spending more money on implementing failed policies is the answer. And like most progressives, you wish to force your dream on others. My dream for education is not about me. It’s about letting ALL parents determine their own dreams for their own children. That means letting them determine the best educational methods and the best schools for their children and not punishing them for doing so! Mr. Cracraft, I nominate you for the Progressive Award of the Year. Only a true progressive wants others to pay for his choices and his misguided ideas! Kathy Getchell Friend of Niel Young Londonderry

Responsibility and sharing are a big deal in this America To the editor, As I arrived at the roundabout in downtown Plymouth, I read the bumper sticker on the car ahead of mine: Your “Fair Share” Is NOT in My Wallet! I began thinking about the car’s owner. She’s driving on a good stretch of road achieved through shared responsibility and money. If she has an accident, a public-employee police officer will show up and help her. Another public-employee fire personnel can also show up to help her. At the hospital, if she needs help, a well-equipped hospital staff will help her, and some of their financial help is from the state (cut down quite a bit, this new state budget that singlemindedly cuts, cuts, cuts). When she shops for food that she didn’t have to grow herself, many other states along the way have accepted sharing

responsibility and money to make roads that allow truckers to deliver the food to her favorite store. When she lies in her bed at night under a roof assembled by others (I assume), they put their energy and lives into a building career or maybe this one project, her house, while relying on others around them to do their fair share of policing, fire prevention, accident response, food growing, trucking, schooling of their kids, doctoring and nursing, so that they’d have time and opportunity to put up walls and put on roofs. We owe much to the idea of “Fair Share.” Think about it, what community does and is, that we all have what we have. Responsibility and sharing are a big deal in this America. Lynn Rudmin Chong Sanbornton

I believe government schools should be under control of citizens To the editor, In reading about Mr. Cracraft’s dream schools, I noticed a number of points made by him that caused me to question his bias against parents. Although his supervisory school board would be made up of local citizens committed to quality education, the only input they would accept from the citizens would be at the ballot box. He desires the parents of all students to be accountable to the school board and the educators, be they in government schools, private schools or home schools. However, I fail to see where the school board members and the educators would be accountable to the parents or the community. He writes a long list of subjects that the students would learn, yet he doesn’t show any way in which those students would be accountable for their completion of assignments or

He doesn’t say who would be the judge of what is an appropriate education. He wants students to respect teachers because they earned it. I wonder how he would know if the teachers really have earned it. And, where is the respect for the parents? He says that Parental Rights would be important but not at the expense of Children’s Rights. Who decided what the rights of the children should be — the school board, the educators, or the parents? He says that teachers should not be convenient scapegoats for right-wing politicians, but fails to say that they should not be tools of the left-wing propagandists. I believe that the government schools should be under the supervision of the citizens, rather than the private schools being under the supervision of state or local education authorities.

LETTERS Exxon/Mobil paid $7-billion in taxes last year while GE paid zero To the editor, I just read with some interest the Letter to the Editor from Karen Barker concerning subsidies to the petroleum industry and “Renewable Energy”. She mentions a book she read that “goes through all the different renewable energy sources and what they have to offer, should we make the necessary investment...”, which is liberal-progressive speak for SPEND MORE TAX DOLLARS. I am willing to bet that this book doesn’t speak to the drawbacks and limitations on any renewable energy source currently available — such as the fact that ethanol raises food prices, takes food out of the mouths of starving children and from the livestock used to feed the world, is ACTUALLY LESS EFFICIENT than petroleum, and creates more pollutants than allowed by current law. The largest wind farm in this country making electricity takes up 129 acres in Texas yet they only produce a fraction of the energy created at Seabrook, which uses only a fraction of the land used by the wind farm. The land used by the wind farm removes land from agricultural uses. In the letter, Karen also states that “numerous other countries have taken this challenge very seriously and are well on their way to replacing a significant percentage of their non-renewable energy sources with renewables”, which is only one side of the story. Top renowned economists from this country and around the world show statistics that indicate that for every “Green Job” created two traditional jobs are lost, forever. This also doesn’t show that the country of Spain, which wholeheartedly made commitments to “Green Jobs”, is now reversing direction because their economy can’t handle the strain. Karen seems to blame the subsidies to petroleum as the reason we haven’t expanded renewable energy but is she aware that petroleum isn’t the only energy source receiving them. from preceding page

The level of subsidy is measured in kilowatts. Regardless of the source or type of energy it can all be converted so you can compare “apples to apples”. The truth of the impact of subsidies is that the amount of money the petroleum industry receives cost $0.02 per kilowatt produced, which is extremely inexpensive. The coal industry cost is $0.08 per kilowatt, nuclear energy is $0.12 per kilowatt, solar energy is $0.95 per kilowatt, wind energy receives $1.07 per kilowatt and ethanol costs the American Taxpayer a total of $21.42 per kilowatt produced. The problem I have with these “Green Job” government mandates is the extremely high cost to the taxpayers in order to support them getting to the marketplace, the ancillary costs (the reduction of food for children and livestock plus the loss of traditional jobs) and the fact that the cost to the consumer for traditional energy is artificially increased in order to make renewable energy not seem so expensive. How about the fact that the Obama Administration is pushing this change from incandescent lighting to the new compact florescent bulbs that contain mercury? Not only has N.H. decided that they will no longer accept these bulbs for disposal because of the mercury (read the packaging and you will find they are a Hazardous Waste) but they are being manufactured in China. All of this while General Electric is closing it’s incandescent light bulb manufacturing and laying off thousands of employees during this recession and moving these jobs to Brazil, while receiving tax subsidies to make the new bulbs in their China plants. Speaking of Brazil, why is the president giving Brazil billions of dollars to expand its off-shore drilling in the Gulf of Mexico while restricting American drilling in this same region? How does this reduce our dependence on foreign oil? The liberal agenda is in favor of the increased prices at the pump, regardless of the impact on the economy for the cost of goods. They simply believe that this will force people to buy these new hybrid cars or the all-electric Chevy Volt that is being marketed by the Obama Administration. This thinking doesn’t take into account that the people driving the older, less efficient vehicles are the same people that can’t afford a newer, more efficient vehicle.

LETTERS People who take risks deserve praise & a high return on investment To the editor, President Obama, Fed Chairman Bernanke, Secretary Geithner, and the president’s economic advisers can’t understand why our economy isn’t creating jobs. It is no mystery to me or, I suspect, to anyone who has created, run, or even seriously thought about running a business. Unfortunately there is little business experience in the Obama administration. When government increases business costs, increases uncertainties about future costs and risks, and reduces the possible benefits from operating a successful business, fewer people will risk their time, money, efforts, and the jobs of current employees to take on additional risks by building inventory, creating new products, or hiring more people. Starting and operating a business is risky. On average one in every four new businesses fails within one year. After 10 years more than seven of every ten new businesses has failed. (From Census Bureau data, See Small Business Trends Entrepreneurs and investors lost the time and money spent trying to make the business successful and the money they could

have earned doing something else. In a recession key business objectives typically are business survival, maintaining current employees, and preparing for future unknowns. Before making new investments, successful business owners estimate whether future income will cover likely costs, debts, salaries, a little extra for unexpected costs, and incentives for extra risk taking. The current administration has created a high risk business environment and it continues to try to increase wage and benefit costs, energy costs, and regulatory costs. On top of that it has created an uncertain tax environment making it impossible to estimate the possible return from risk taking. The real mystery is not why jobs are not being created. The real surprise is that so many Americans are still willing to risk their own and their family’s future by taking risks and creating jobs. The people who take these risks, especially in this antibusiness environment, deserve our praise, our thanks, and if they are successful, they deserve to earn a very high return on their investment. Don Ewing Meredith

A woman’s heart holds many secrets; let’s keep it that way To the editor, Last week N.H. Bishop John McCormack urged N.H. Legislators to override a bill that would require pregnant girls seeking abortions to tell their parents or a judge first. For once I have to agree with Gov. Lynch, who vetoed the bill last week. It’s ironic how the N.H. and the Boston Archdiocese kept their dirty little abuse scandal private amongst themselves, as they relocated their ordained pedophiles back into our churches , schools and into homes through out New England. I don’t recall church officials telling the parents or their parishioners or the courts that child predators have been released back into the flock. Where is that coward Bernard Law now? Hiding under a desk at the Vatican, most likely, as men now my age from preceding page to choose between driving to work, heating their homes in the winter and feeding their children. What about the fact that these hybrid vehicles that reduce gas tax revenue to the states, which are forced to find new taxes to pay for road and bridge construction? Some states have proposed charging a tax on the number of miles you drive your car every year, regardless of whether or not those miles were in your home state or if, God forbid your car is stolen and driven across the country. In comparison the conservative agenda calls for being responsible stewards of the resources God has provided us. We want to reduce our dependence on foreign energy by producing more of our own energy with more drilling, more nuclear, more wind, more solar, more hydro-electric dams and more wood burning plants, which will reduce costs while creating jobs. Then we need to reduce the over-

try to forget, and struggle with their faith ,every day. My point is that a young girl’s decision to keep a child or not is between her and GOD, not a judge. Being adopted myself, one might take me as a Pro Lifer. My adopted parents, God rest their souls, were avid Catholics and for obvious reasons pro life, although after adopting their third child — ME — they might have had second thoughts. Let me put this to our N.H. bishop in layman terms: A woman’s heart holds many secrets. Let’s keep it that way. LESSON OF THE DAY: Bishops who preach from wooden pulpits and live in stained glass houses should not throw stones. End of lesson. Tom Sellew Lochmere (Tilton)

regulation and tax policies that place an unfair burden on American businesses. This will unleash the American ingenuity to drive the creation of clean, renewable energy at a price we can all afford. I believe that when the free-market solutions are used to solve these problems we will find a way to create “Green Jobs” without losing other jobs. Some people on the left are extremely upset with the oil companies and blame them for the high prices we are paying to drive our cars and to heat and light our homes but it wasn’t that long ago that the oil companies were losing money hand over fist. Why didn’t these people call for government bail-outs back then because these companies are “To Big To Fail”? The fact of the matter is that the oil companies earn approximately $0.08 on the dollar, which is then taxed at 45 – 55-percent. Everyone decries Exxon-Mobil for making just see next page

Police sum-up Bike Week as ‘uneventful’ K-9 ‘Yago’ near retirement age; chief wants program to continue By Gail OBer


LACONIA — At the first Police Commission meeting since Motorcycle Week ended, police brass described this year’s annual rally as “uneventful.” Although the final statistics were not yet available, Chief Christopher Adams said this was “the quietest one I’ve seen.” Elaborating a little, Capt. William Clary said there were “lots of big day crowds but by 9 or 10 p.m. people were not hanging around.” “I saw more people during the day than I had in ages,” said Clary. Commission Chair Warren Clement said he spent all day Saturday in the Weirs Beach area and also thought the crowd was strong during the day but smaller at night. He said he spent quite a bit of time in the Laconia Rotary Club raffle ticket booth and said the club raised more money this year than last, but it wasn’t a record. In thanking the police for a “job well done” Clement said most people don’t know how much effort goes into annual Motorcycle Week and not just by the police but by all the public and private agencies in the greater Laconia area. In other police news, Adams said the department’s K-9 program will continue and he has sent an internal notification to all department police officers to from preceding page

over $8-billion last year but nothing is said about the fact they paid almost $7-billion in taxes last year and more than $54-billion in taxes in the past 10 years. How does this compare to General Electric that earned over $3-billion last year and paid absolutely NO FEDERAL TAXES? I agree that with the debt our government has placed on the taxpayers, our representatives should look closely at the subsidies provided to energy production. I don’t believe that we should limit the elimination of subsidies to the petroleum industry but should be fair and eliminate the subsidies across the board. Maybe then the companies producing renewable energy will find a way to reduce the costs so they can compete in the free-market. Greg Knytych New Hampton

see if anyone already on board would like to do the canine officer job. With the recent promotion of K-9 Officer Michael Finogle to sergeant, the program continues, but not full-time. Adams said if Finogle is supervising an incident where a K-9 is needed, the department gets assistance from other local and state police. He said most of the costs of the program are raised through donations and a new dog will cost $7,000 to $8,000. Yago, the current K-9 officer is nearing 8-years-old and will retire soon. Most likely he will remain with Finogle as his family pet. Traditionally, said Commissioner Doug Whittum, police dogs, upon retirement, are sold to their existing handlers for $1. Adams said the next training class is in March and the department needs to purchase a new dog by then. He said Finogle is “confident” he can get a significant portion of the money through donations. In previous statements, Adams has applauded the Laconia K-9 program saying it not only adds to effective community policing but to positive public relations. He has said he has every intention of continuing with Laconia’s program. City Police also reported they have some “very good” leads toward solving the recent spate of burglaries and thefts from automobiles plaguing the city and neighboring Belmont. Last week, Belmont Police Chief Vincent Baiocchetti reported a number of cars had been broken into and two vehicles had been stolen. Clary said yesterday that one of the vehicles stolen from Belmont was recovered in Laconia and detectives in both departments believe many of the thefts in both communities are related. Both Adams and Baiocchetti have said for residents to make sure to lock their cars, even when they are parked in the driveway; remove any valuables like money, electronics and portable traffic devices, and keep their homes locked. Adams said the majority of the thefts in Laconia were from unlocked vehicles but also said there have been a few instances, including one reported yesterday morning, where a car window has been smashed. Any one with any information is asked to call the Laconia Police at 524-5252, the Belmont Police at 267see next page

Half the oil will come from reserves in the U.S. Refiners who turn crude into gasoline will be able to bid on the extra oil and have it shipped to them from the salt caverns along the Gulf Coast where it is stored.

The uprising in Libya has taken 1.5 million barrels of oil per day off of the market — half a million barrels less than will be released each day by the IEA. The price of oil rose to nearly $114 per barrel in at the end of April, the highest since the summer of 2008, but since then has fallen considerably. Analysts questioned how much relief the move would provide the economy, and for how long. One analyst, Andrew Lipow, said the timing of the announcement, a day after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke delivered a negative outlook on the economy, suggests that industrialized countries are grasping for solutions. He said Americans should expect the price of gasoline to fall, but not dramatically, in coming weeks. “Fifteen or 20 cents a gallon of relief is not enough to make people feel good about their job prospects or losses on the stock market or our general economic slowdown,” he said.

Commissioners say county will accommodate Gilford if it wants to off-load some police dispatch responsibility By Michael Kitch GILFORD — Ed Philpot, chairman of the Belknap County Commission, assured the selectmen this week that if they decide to transfer some or all of the town’s police dispatch services to the Belknap County Sheriff’s Department, “it’ll happen.” Apart from Laconia, Gilford is the only town in the county to provide round-the-clock dispatch service on its own. The selectmen initially raised the issue of using the county dispatch service in January 2010 when they proposed eliminating dispatch service on the “midnight shift” — from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. At the time, Sheriff Craig Wiggin advised them that the county’s communications center was already operating at capacity and adding calls from Gilford would more than double the call volume on the “midnight shift.” Although the selectmen accepted the explanation, they questioned why, if Gilford could not avail itself of the county dispatch service, it should contribute to its cost. In a letter to the county commissioners, the board noted that the sheriff’s department provides dispatch services to nine of the 11 municipalities and claimed “it is blatantly unfair” to require Gilford to pay for services that benefit other towns but are not available to it. The selectmen suggested refunding the town its share of the cost of dispatch service or charging the towns using the service. After considering billing towns based on their call

volume, the county commission earlier this month abandoned the notion. according to their call volume. “County services are not provided a la carte,” said Philpot at the time. This week, when the commission addressed the selectmen, Gus Benavides reopened the issue by eying Philpot and asking politely “a la carte?” Philpot replied “we’re looking for ways to solve the dispatch problem to everyone’s benefit,” but said that it is very difficult, though not impossible to calculate the cost of calls for service and design an equitable billing system. Commissioner John Thomas explained that different towns used the dispatch service on on different days and at different times, describing the situation as “piecemeal.” However, Philpot told the selectmen that a decision on how to provide police dispatch service for the town was theirs to make. If they chose to turn to the county, he continued, the commission would ask the county sheriff to outline the steps necessary to provide the service to Gilford. “If that is the decision the Board of selectmen make,” he said, “it’ll happen.” Town Administrator Scott Dunn suggested that one service the county might provide more effectively than the municipalities would be animal control. Philpot agreed, commenting that most local police departments do not have an animal control officer and stray animals have no respect for town lines.

KINGSBURY from page one tative — 16 times without success. Explaining his defeats the day after his election, Kingsbury quipped “I give credit to the voters for having good judgment,” adding that he hoped the same factor accounted for his victory. Sharing the adage of Tip O’Neill that “all politics is local,” Kingsbury has introduced legislation to honor Charlie St. Clair of Laconia, the executive director of the Laconia Motorcycle Week Association, for his contributions to tourism in the state.

Among Kingsbury’s proposals, a bill to forbid attorneys and their spouses from holding elective office in either the legislative or executive branch of government is sure to catch the eye of the House Republican leadership. Both Speaker of the House Bill O’Brien and the House Majority Leader D.J. Bettencourt are lawyers. Kingsbury said the legislation is necessary to prevent conflicts of interest that arise when attorneys represent clients in litigation against the state. see next page

WHITEY from page 2 The new FBI announcements, which targeted 14 areas where agents thought Bulger might be, did not include the Los Angeles area. Instead, they were broadcast in San Diego, San Francisco and a dozen other locations. Retired Massachusetts state police Col. Tom Foley, who investigated Bulger for decades, said he never believed the various reported Bulger sightings around the world, even the 2002 sighting in London that the FBI said was confirmed. Foley said it was widely believed that the FBI didn’t actively search for the mobster, at least initially. “Apparently, they should have spent more time in this country looking for him than gallivanting overseas,” Foley said. Damon Katz, chief counsel for the FBI in Boston, wouldn’t comment on Bulger’s living in the same place for almost the entire time he was a fugitive. On Thursday afternoon, Bulger appeared with his girlfriend in federal court in Los Angeles and was ordered returned to Massachusetts to face charges after he waived his right to a hearing. Balding, with a full white beard and wire-rimmed

glasses, Bulger clutched court documents against his chest in court and smiled as he was led away by law officers. He faces federal charges that include murder, conspiracy to commit murder, narcotics distribution, extortion and money laundering. Greig was charged with harboring a fugitive. Many people in the Southern California neighborhood where the crime boss lived were not surprised that Bulger could blend in in Santa Monica, a densely populated beachside suburb of Los Angeles where aging, ponytailed hippies, bike-riding environmentalists, Hollywood actors and others regularly rub shoulders with retirees, but usually exchange no more than pleasantries. “This is the perfect place to hide,” said Maura McCormick, who lives in an apartment building next door. “Nobody bothers anyone here.” Seth Rosenzweig, a writer who lives down the hall from Bulger’s apartment, said the fugitive, who was partial to baseball caps and dark sunglasses, kept a low profile. He would divert his eyes every time he got into the elevator with other people. see next page

from preceding page Another bill would require the state to provide a firearm and ammunition to women granted restraining orders. Kingsbury said he was inspired by the fatal shooting of Debra Gates and James Leroy in Lakeport in 1995 by her estranged husband, who broke into her home. “If he had known she had a loaded shotgun, he would not have kicked in the front door,” Kingsbury said. Kingsbury wants the Legislature to urge Congress to authorize the use of a submarine moored in Portsmouth to assist the United States Coast Guard with search and rescue missions. “The perfect storm,” he said by way of explanation, recalling the tempest that claimed the Andrea Gail . “In those conditions surface vessels can make no progress, but submarines are unaffected and carry electronics that can locate any boat anywhere.” Kingsbury would require a vegetarian diet for all prison inmates. A child of the Great Depression, he said that most of the country ate only vegetables and

fruit. He remebered that in Akron, Ohio the Quaker Oats mill was one of the few plants operating and many children lived on oatmeal three times a day. “All the necessary vitamns and minerals are in vegetables and fruit,” he said, adding with a twinkle in his eye “and we would save six or seven million dollars.” Among several bills aimed at the judicial branch, one would set a minimum age of 60 for all judges, who would be compelled to retire at 70. Commenting that men and women in their late 20s and early 30s are appointed to the bench, Kingsbury, a veteran of the Battle of the Bulge, said “they don’t have the understanding that comes from having their rough edges knocked off.” Other bills would celebrate the 800th anniversay of the Magna Carta in 2015, change the process of nominating candidates to the U.S. Senate, increase compensation for jurors, restrict the use of chemical herbicides, and control the expenditure of union funds. “Some of these things need to be done,” Kingsbury said.

Special Gilmanton Town Meeting approves energy efficiency initiative, 47-4 GILMANTON — It took only 51 voters this week to correct the mistake of many more at Town Meeting in March when by a voice vote a majority approved a warrant article to borrow $56,585 to make more efficient use of energy in heating the Academy building. After Town Meeting, the Board of Selectmen were informed that since the article would add to the town’s debt, a two-thirds majority was required for adoption. A special town meeting was convened on Tuesday to correct the deficiency. The polls remained open for an hour and at 8 p.m. when the ballot box was opened and the votes were counted Moderator Mark Sisti announced that 47 voted in favor and only four against.

The funds will be used to improve the windows and insulate the building, which the Energy Committee estimates will save $5,400 a year in the cost of heating oil at its current price of $3.45 a gallon. The article authorizes the selectmen to borrow from the New Hampshire Community Development Finance Authority at an interest rate not to exceed 4-percent. The Energy Committee calculated that the cost savings would exceed the debt service on the loan, which is 1.5-percent, or $3,879, in the first year, 2.5-percent in the second through the seventh year and 3.5-percent in the eighth and ninth years. — Michael Kitch

from preceding page The apartment’s managers, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the couple, who went by the names Charles and Carol Gasko, had lived there 15 years and were ideal tenants who always paid their rent on time and in cash. Santa Monica property records show the apartment had a rent-controlled rate of $1,145 a month. Catalina Schlank, who has lived in the building for 35 years, said she was friendly with Greig but not so much so with Bulger, whom she called a recluse. “They were a handsome couple, but they were kind of mysterious,” she said. The couple didn’t own a car, choosing to walk everywhere. That’s easy to do in their neighborhood, just down the street from the beach. Schlank said Greig would often walk to a market before dawn, bringing back the couple’s groceries in a shopping cart and stopping off to drop Schlank’s newspaper at her door, sometimes with some fruit she had picked up. The apartment managers also recalled that Bulger seemed concerned for the well-being of others, once giving a building worker his flashlight because he was worried about her crossing the road after she finished her shift at night. Bulger had a $2 million reward on his head and rose to No. 1 on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list after Osama bin Laden was killed. He was wanted for 19 murders, including one in which the victim was shot between the eyes in a parking lot at his country club in Oklahoma.

Another was gunned down in broad daylight on a South Boston street to prevent him from talking about the killing in Oklahoma. Others were taken out for running afoul of Bulger’s gambling enterprises. At the same time he was boss of the Winter Hill Gang, South Boston’s murderous Irish mob, Bulger was an FBI informant, supplying information about the rival New England Mafia. A congressional committee in 2003 harshly criticized the FBI for its use of Bulger and other criminals as informants, calling it “one of the greatest failures in the history of federal law enforcement.” The retired agent accused of tipping off Bulger, John Connolly Jr., was convicted of racketeering in 2002 for protecting Bulger and another mob informant in the Winter Hill Gang, Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi. Connolly was also found guilty of murder in Miami for helping to set in motion a mob hit in 1982 against a business executive. Patricia Donahue, wife of alleged Bulger victim Michael Donahue, said she could not believe the news of Bulger’s capture. “I actually never thought I would see this day. I thought the man was dead,” she said. Her husband, a construction worker and truck driver, was killed in 1982 in a hit on an underworld figure who was cooperating with investigators. Donahue had given the target of the hit a ride home that day. “I am very satisfied to know that the person who pulled the trigger to end my husband’s life is going to go to jail,” Donahue said.

Bush leaves Inter-Lakes music program on a high note By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

MEREDITH — Steve Bush, the head of the music department at Inter-Lakes Middle Tier and High School for the last 16 years, spent his last day on the job Thursday. And he’s leaving while at the top of his game. “This has been an incredible year. I couldn’t ask to go out on a higher note,’’ says Bush, proudly displaying the two first place trophies that the Inter-Lakes High School Band and Inter-Lakes High School Jazz Ensemble won earlier this month at a Music in the Park Festival in Hershey, Pennsylvania. “The kids in the band are exceptional and a large part of that is the parental support and Steve Bush, music director at Inter-Lakes Middle-Tier & High School, with the first place trophies won involvement we have by the high school’s concert band and jazz ensemble in Hershey, Pennsylvania, earlier this month.

JOBS from page one Manager Steve Mazzuchi and Senior Director of Customer Service Bill Beitel. Mazzuchi and Beitel said they had already gone through 50 applications and had copies of them a few times. Since what economists have called the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression struck in 2008, New Hampshire has remained at the low end of the nation’s unemployment scale. However, Belknap and Coos Counties, according to New Hampshire Department of Employment Security statistics released in May, have trailed the rest of the state in recovery. As of March, the seasonally-adjusted unemployment rate for the state was 5.2-percent — one of the lowest in the country. In Belknap County, unemployment was 6.1-percent — down from a high 8.4-percent in March of 2010 but still higher than all but from preceding page part of my family tradition,’’ he says. Bush says it was refreshing to return to education and that over the years he has frequently told people that he has the best job in the school, because he loves music and loves kids. There’s another benefit as well, says Bush. “I’m 60 years old, but people say I don’t look that old. Kids keep you young, especially in music. Teaching at Inter-Lakes has been one of the highlights of my life,’’ he says. He and his wife live in Tuftonoboro where he’s been active in the community as a member of the Wolfeboro Cate Park Band, the Great Waters Music

Coos County. Laconia’s March unemployment rate was the second highest of all New Hampshire cities at 6.2-percent. Unemployment for Berlin was 8.7-percent. According to the Department of Employment Security, the good news is the rate of employment or job loss has slowed considerably. The bad news is there are still few private-sector, full-time yearround positions being filled. With local budgets tight and voters not in the mood to see any tax increases, those employed in the public sector likely won’t see much in the way of raises and very few new public sector jobs will be created. At yesterday’s MetroCcast job fair, Beitel said they were thrilled with the number of applicants who came for an interview. He said MetroCast likes to hire locally and prefers not to use temporary employment agencies. He Festival, the Lakes Region Symphony Orchestra, the Tuftonboro Free Library and the Wolfeboro Area Children’s Center. His record and CD collection of classical, jazz, and rock is very extensive and he says that he enjoys spending time playing his guitars and mandolin. Bush, who has held a real estate sales license for the last five years, will be joining his wife as a member of the Maxfield Real Estate team and will be working out of the agency’s Center Harbor office. “It’s another job that I love. This is such a beautiful area and a great place to live and raise a family, like we have, and have such great schools for your children,’’ says Bush.

added that this was the first time the company had held its own job fair but had participated in other multi-company fairs.. “Today, we have a large selection to choose from and some really decent candidates,” Beitel said. He said MetroCast is a company that really cares about its employees, pays above the average for state income in the jobs category sought and provides excellent benefits. Beitel also said that for those who won’t get a job immediately as a result of yesterday’s job fair, the company is growing and will keep resumes for future reference. He also said MetroCast has operations in eight different states and, for those willing to relocate, there may be opportunities. While each of the people sitting at her table had different circumstances surrounding their unemployment or under employment, many were college educated and working at least part-time. And for a few brief hours on a rainy summer day, like Fitts all were optimistic, hoping their previous work experiences, solid educations, winning personalities or some combination of the the three would land them at MetroCast as a full-time employee — with benefits. “If you’ve been out of work this long, you really need some kind of a sense of humor,” said Fitts. “And a few prayers,” said the lady sitting next to her.

OBAMA from page 3 Overall the reaction Obama got was warm from the crowd of nearly 600 who paid up to $35,800 each to hear him speak at a midtown hotel. And only a small group of protesters showed up to demonstrate outside for marriage equality. It was a measure of how much the gay community has warmed to Obama since earlier in his administration when donors threatened to boycott Democratic fundraisers to pressure Obama on “don’t ask, don’t tell.” If Obama were to endorse gay marriage, it would give a jolt of enthusiasm to his liberal base and perhaps unlock additional fundraising dollars from the wellheeled gay community. It’s not clear it would get him too many additional votes in 2012 though, because the Republican field’s general opposition to gay rights gives activists no alternative to Obama.

Good Earth teens raising funds to plant Liberty Elm tree at Pleasant St. School LACONIA — Many years ago, a few students at Pleasant Street School came together with the common goal of improving the world around them. Brandon Hamel, Ryan Curtis and Samantha Seymour would eventually form the non-profit group Good Earth, dedicated to helping various causes and raising funds to support other agencies. Two of the three are preparing to leave for college, and although they plan to continue the charitable efforts when they return home, they wanted to squeeze one more project in before college and decided to plant a gift for their elementary school. The gift is a Liberty Elm Memorial, which will be planted once $2,500 in funding is collected to pay for the tree and planting. The memorial will consist of a 14 foot tall American Liberty Elm tree, which will be planted with a plaque

and framed print of Thomas Paine’s poem “The Liberty Tree.” Good Earth is partnering with the Liberty Tree Society to raise the necessary funds, which they hope to accomplish in time to host a planting ceremony on August 14, which is recognized as Liberty Tree Day. The Liberty Tree Society raises funds to plant disease-resistent elm trees across the country, in an effort to replace the elms which once filled the American landscape before they were decimated by Dutch elm disease. Good Earth hopes to help the society by soliciting corporate sponsorships of the project. For more information about the Liberty Tree Society, see For more about Good Earth, visit or call Hamel at 3874198.

Lakes Region residents urged to reduce use of hazardous household products MEREDITH — The Lakes Region Planning Commission encourages residents to reduce the use of hazardous household products. Maintaining environmental quality in the Lakes Region requires personal and community responsibility. Products that are used in homes and yards can have significant impacts on our local environment. Most homes contain several common household goods that are considered a hazard to the environment if disposed of improperly. Anyone who looks under the sink, in the garage, or in the basement will likely see products such as oven cleaner, drain opener, hair spray, paint thinner, pesticides, or pool chemicals. These products and others are considered hazardous because they contain chemicals that are corrosive, explosive, flammable, or toxic. If improperly stored or discarded, these products can damage the local environment. Pouring them on the ground or washing them down the sink does not make them go away. Municipal treatment plants and leach fields are incapable of processing

certain chemicals. Landfill disposal poses many risks to people and the environment. In each case, the chemicals can leach out and contaminate our groundwater, upon which everyone is dependent. Using alternative products is the first step to reducing one’s “environmental impact.” If hazardous products are not purchased, then there is less toxic waste in the region. All Lakes Region residents are urged to use alternatives to hazardous household products. If, however, one does have some toxic materials in the home or garage that need to be discarded, a solution does exist. By pooling state, regional, and local resources, two dozen Lakes Region communities are offering safe, efficient, and effective household hazardous waste (HHW) collections through the Lakes Region Planning Commission (LRPC). This year’s HHW collections will occur on Saturday, July 30 and Saturday, August 6. More information on these collections can be found at http://www.

CONCORD — The deadline to apply for New Hampshire Low and Moderate Income Homeowner’s Property Tax Relief is Thursday, June 30. Granite State residents who own a homestead subject to the State Education Property Tax, resided in the homestead as of April 1, 2010, and have a total household income of $20,000 or less if a single person (or $40,000 or less if married or head of household) may apply for property tax relief. Application forms (Form DP-8) are available on the Department’s web site at Information about the program and application

status is also available on this site. Forms and Frequently Asked Questions brochures are available at most local municipal offices. Due to budget constraints, the application form will not be mailed to previously qualifying residents. Residents who do not have access to the Internet or who cannot pick up a form at their local municipal office may request a form by caling at 271-2192. Many State libraries, including the 13 or more NH State Depository libraries, allow residents to utilize their computer Internet services to complete and print a Form DP-8 for submission by mail. Over 17,000 claims are submitted each year resulting in an average $120 of State Education Property Tax Relief per household. Over $3 million of property tax relief was distributed to claim applicants in 2010. One of the most common reasons an applicant may see a delay in the response is due to lack of proper attachments. Completed claim forms must be accompanied by a copy of the 2010 final tax bill from the municipality where the applicant resides along with a copy of the applicant’s 2010 federal income tax return (1040-EZ, 1040A, etc). Applicants are reminded that the NH Department of Revenue Administration is a state taxing agency and cannot determine an individual’s federal tax liability. Anyone who is unsure of whether they are required to file federally should contact the IRS at 1(800) 8291040. If not required to file with the IRS, check a box on the Form DP-8 indicating this. Homesteads held in trust must also be verified by submission of the trust document, but may still qualify for relief.

Deadline to apply for state property tax relief is June 30

By Holiday Mathis be lucky for you to make a request of a friend. Do this as far in advance of the event as you possibly can. Give the other person plenty of time to warm up to the idea of what he or she will be doing for you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Two options will be presented to you, one right after the other. This makes the compare-and-contrast element of your decision making quite easy, and by the end of the day, the answer will be clear. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When you know you don’t know but you act anyway, the result can be quite hilarious. Just be sure not to make these kinds of snap decisions about anything that could put your safety in question. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Don’t worry about the mistakes you’ll make. A joyful life is filled with mistakes. There is no thrill in living without risk. You’ll mess up, which is what makes getting it right so wonderful. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are open to opportunities to work with those with different strengths and talents. Volunteer to help in any way necessary -- it will change your life for the better. Together, you will accomplish a shared vision. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 24). Worldly success means nothing to you unless you have personal success with the people you love. You’ll enjoy the attention of admirers in July. You’ll move on from outworn duties in August and take on new responsibilities. September shows increased social power. A dietary change ushers in excellent health. Pisces and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 31, 6, 34 and 42.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll meet someone who can help you advance your interests. You laugh and have fun talking to this person. Is there enough common ground to build something meaningful? You’ll find out next week. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will heighten your awareness through instruction, especially if you’re the teacher. As you show someone how to accomplish a task, you will see how it could be done better. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Neophobia, the fear of change or anything new, is not something from which you would normally suffer. Still, you like to have a general sense of where things are going. Encourage loved ones to keep you abreast of breaking news. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You care what your friends, colleagues and the community at large think of you. You will knock yourself out to please them. Your selflessness will be strongly felt, and your approval rating will soar. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It will be challenging to stay tuned in as someone else tells you what to do. You’re just not in the mood for following directions. You’d much rather have the satisfaction of figuring it out for yourself. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, June 24, 2011— Page 19

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, June 24, the 175th day of 2011. There are 190 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On June 24, 1314, the forces of Scotland’s King Robert I defeated the English in the Battle of Bannockburn. On this date: In 1509, Henry VIII was crowned king of England; his wife, Catherine of Aragon, was crowned queen consort. In 1793, the first republican constitution in France was adopted. In 1807, a grand jury in Richmond, Va., indicted former Vice President Aaron Burr on charges of treason and high misdemeanor (he was later acquitted). In 1908, the 22nd and 24th presidents of the United States, Grover Cleveland, died in Princeton, N.J., at age 71. In 1910, Italian automaker Alfa Romeo was founded in Milan. In 1940, France signed an armistice with Italy during World War II. In 1948, Communist forces cut off all land and water routes between West Germany and West Berlin, prompting the western allies to organize the Berlin Airlift. The Republican National Convention, meeting in Philadelphia, nominated New York Gov. Thomas E. Dewey for president. In 1968, “Resurrection City,” a shantytown constructed as part of the Poor People’s March on Washington, D.C., was closed down by authorities. In 1975, 113 people were killed when an Eastern Airlines Boeing 727 crashed while attempting to land during a thunderstorm at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport. In 1983, the space shuttle Challenger carrying America’s first woman in space, Sally K. Ride coasted to a safe landing at Edwards Air Force Base in California. One year ago: President Barack Obama declared that he and visiting Russian President Dmitry Medvedev had “succeeded in resetting” the relationship between the former Cold War adversaries. Today’s Birthdays: Actor Al Molinaro is 92. Comedian Jack Carter is 88. Actress Michele Lee is 69. Actor-director Georg Stanford Brown is 68. Rock musician Jeff Beck is 67. Singer Arthur Brown is 67. Rock singer Colin Blunstone (The Zombies) is 66. Musician Mick Fleetwood is 64. Actor Peter Weller is 64. Rock musician John Illsley (Dire Straits) is 62. Actress Nancy Allen is 61. Reggae singer Derrick Simpson (Black Uhuru) is 61. Actor Joe Penny is 55. Reggae singer Astro (UB40) is 54. Singer-musician Andy McCluskey is 52. Rock singer Curt Smith is 50. Actress Danielle Spencer is 46. Actress Sherry Stringfield is 44. Singer Glenn Medeiros is 41. Actress-producer Mindy Kaling is 32. Actress Minka Kelly is 31. Actress Kaitlin Cullum is 25. Singer Solange Knowles is 25.

Page 20 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, June 24, 2011


Dear Annie: I’m so frustrated right now. Our 22-year-old daughter, “Olivia,” is living at home with my husband, our 17-year-old son and me. A while back, she quit college and moved in with her friends, which turned out to be a financial disaster. Two years ago, Olivia decided to return to school and moved back in with us. She works full time, goes to classes and has managed to pay off her creditors. She is saving money to buy a car. We do not charge rent, but she does pay for her own gas and personal items. The problem? Olivia is a sweet girl, but she is really letting herself go. She has gained a considerable amount of weight and doesn’t seem to care about her appearance. However, what is really tipping me over is her room. It is an absolute mess -- clothes all over the floor, the bed and stuffed in the closet, and dirty dishes, garbage and makeup strewn about. I can’t even walk through the room. Every time I look in there, it just makes me sick and angry. I don’t do her laundry, but can’t recall her doing it, either, so she must be wearing dirty clothes. Her father and I have begged and threatened, but nothing gets her to clean up. All she says is “I’ll get to it” or “I’m too busy.” But when she’s not at work or at school, she’s sleeping, watching TV or visiting her boyfriend. I’m ready to kick her out, but I’m afraid she will quit college and get in financial trouble again. Olivia has one year left of school. Should I put up with this disgusting room until then? -- At the End of my Tether in South Dakota Dear S.D.: If you are too worried to throw her out, then yes, you’ll have to put up with the mess until she graduates. Olivia may be slovenly or depressed, and her schedule may be so busy that she needs more downtime than most. If you think she may be depressed, please suggest she visit the college counseling department. Whatever the

reason, you are not obligated to go into Olivia’s room if it is too stressful for you. Close the door. Dear Annie: My sister-in-law, “Maureen,” has two different sides to her personality. A month ago, we were invited to my brother’s house for dinner. My teenage daughter took a piece of bacon that was drying on a rack. Maureen yelled at her and then hit her on the back with the flat of her hand. I said nothing, but was hurt and angry. Maureen will snap for no apparent reason at some innocuous remark. She has been doing this off and on for years. I have overlooked her behavior for a long time, but the incident with my daughter was the last straw. I believe she needs some kind of help, but she would never admit it. How do I deal with this situation? -- Totally Fed Up Dear Totally: We’re astounded that you said nothing when Maureen hit your child. That would have been the moment to speak up, tell her she was out of line and then leave. You cannot force Maureen to deal with her mood swings, but there is no reason for you to put up with such abuse. Dear Annie: I laughed when I read the letter from “Neglected,” who complained about her husband’s lack of gift giving. Here’s how my friend “Nadine” handled a similar situation: Nadine kept dropping hints to her hubby that she wanted some new dishes for their 25th anniversary. When nothing was forthcoming, she “borrowed” his credit card and ordered the reasonably priced set she wanted. When it arrived, she unpacked it, called a few friends to come over and waited for her husband to come home. When he arrived, she made such a tearful, effusive appreciation speech (with many kisses thrown in) that he was speechless. He never forgot again. -- LOL at the Memory

Judge tells Lohan to host no more parties at her house while she’s under arrest time but can host family and business associates. Sautner ordered Lohan to appear in court on July 21, but said she wouldn’t incur any additional penalties if she abided by the terms of her probation. Sautner is the fifth judge to handle Lohan’s case since she was arrested twice in 2007. In April, Lohan was found in violation of her probation for taking a necklace without permission.

Some of the parties at Lohan’s home in the Venice neighborhood of Los Angeles were photographed by paparazzi. “Don’t give people a reason to hate you,” Sautner told her. “Don’t do stupid things that fly in the face of the court’s order.” Sautner said Lohan can only have one friend over at her house at a
