Father of Laconia tax cap says he’ll target re-election effort of any councilor who votes to appoint Myers city manager Niel Young’s low opinion of Dover mayor dates to that city’s run-up to adopting its own tax cap in 2007 By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — Speaking of the City Council’s choice of Scott Myers, the mayor of Dover, as the next city manager, Niel Young, the local conservative pundit and activist, said yesterday “I’m not pleased.” Young, who contributes a regular column
to the “The Weirs Times” and hosts a sixday-a-week talk show on WEZS-AM, said that “I’ll be waiting to see how they vote,” adding that those supporting the appointment of Myers “won’t be my friends. They will be targets for this fall,” he continued, alluding to the municipal election in November, “and we’ll take them out.”
Only Councilor Brenda Baer (Ward 4) among the six councilors has indicated that she will vote against Myers’s appointment, leaving councilors Ava Doyle (Ward 1), Matt Lahey (Ward 2), Henry Lipman (Ward 3, Bob Hamel (Ward 5) and Armand Bolduc (Ward 6) in Young’s crosshairs. see yOuNG page 8

The town agreed to allow Pike to remain on the town’s policy until he turns 65 or until his ex-wife is no longer a town employee. It is unknown to The Daily Sun how old Pike is. Pike’s ex-wife is Town Clerk Cynthia Deroy and a public record obtained from the Laconia Family Court indicate the two were divorced on Nov. 29, 2006. Information about a see PIKE page 22

River filling 2,500 homes in Minot, North Dak.
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The Souris River’s full weight hit Minot on Friday, swamping an estimated 2,500 homes as it soared nearly 4 feet in less than a day and overwhelmed the city’s levees. City officials said they expected as many as 4,500 homes to be severely damaged by the time the river peaks Saturday. More than a quarter of the city’s 40,000 residents evacuated earlier this week, packing any belongings they hoped to save into cars, trucks and trailers. “The river’s coming up rapidly,” Mayor Curt Zimbelman said. “It’s dangerous and we need to stay away.” Fed by heavy rains upstream and dam releases that have accelerated in recent days, the Souris surged past a 130-year-old record Friday and kept going. The river was more than 5 feet above major flood stage Friday afternoon and expected to crest as early as Saturday evening some 8½ feet beyond major flood stage. The predicted crest was lowered a foot based on new modeling see FLOOD page 10

Whitey Bulger returned to Boston; will he sing? BOSTON (AP) — James “Whitey” Bulger’s capture could cause a world of trouble inside the FBI. The ruthless Boston crime boss who spent 16 years on the lam is said to have boasted that he corrupted six FBI agents and more than 20 police officers. If he decides to talk, some of them could rue the day he was caught. “They are holding their breath, wondering what he could say,” said Robert Fitzpatrick, the former second-in-command of the Boston FBI office. The 81-year-old gangster was captured
Wednesday in Santa Monica, Calif., where he apparently had been living for most of the time he was a fugitive. He appeared Friday afternoon inside a heavily guarded federal courthouse in Boston to answer for his role in 19 murders. Bulger, wearing jeans and a white shirt, looked tan and fit and walked with a slight hunch at back-to-back hearings on two indictments. He asked that a public defender be appointed to represent him, but the government objected, citing the $800,000 seized from his Southern California apartment and his “family resources.”
“We think he has access to more cash,” said prosecutor Brian Kelly. At the second hearing, Bulger took a swipe at prosecutors after Magistrate Judge Marianne Bowler asked him if he could afford to pay for an attorney. “Well, I could, if they would give me my money back,” he replied in his unmistakable Boston accent, prompting laughter in the courtroom. Kelly implied that Bulger’s cash came from illegal activities. “He clearly didn’t make that on a paper see WHITEY page 12
WASHINGTON (AP) — Challenging presidential power, a defiant U.S. House voted overwhelmingly Friday to deny President Barack Obama the authority to wage war against Libya. But Republicans fell short in an effort to actually cut off funds for the operation in a constitutional showdown reflecting both political differences and unease over American involvement. In a repudiation of their commander in chief, House members rejected a measure to authorize the Libya mission for a year while prohibiting U.S. ground forces in the
North African nation, a resolution Obama had said he would welcome. The vote was 295-123 with 70 Democrats abandoning the president just one day after Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton had made an unusual appeal to rank-and-file members. A Senate committee is to consider the same resolution next Tuesday and is expected to support it, raising the prospect of conflicting messages from Congress. Friday’s votes showed lawmakers’ concerns about an open-ended U.S. commit-
ment to a civil war between Moammar Gadhafi and rebel forces looking to oust him — as well as growing weariness among Americans with drawn-out conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. In addition, the resounding number rejecting the authority resolution was a clear sign of anger toward the president for failing to seek congressional consent for the operation within 60 days, as stated in the 1973 War Powers Resolution. Republicans and Democrats argued that an arrogant see HOUSE page 14
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Two aging professors accused of running a sophisticated prostitution website appeared to have one goal: Police say they wanted to create a place where respected men like themselves could go for sex without having to worry about getting caught
up in street stings. “They have a lot to lose, and they tried to build an organization to protect themselves,” Albuquerque police Lt. William Roseman said. The website, based in the AlbuquerqueSanta Fe area, featured “weather reports”
about police vice stings; physical descriptions and cell phone numbers of undercover police to help members avoid arrest; training videos on what to do if members were busted; and detailed information on the prostitutes themselves, including see SEX page 22

Loudon police charge 17-yearold with rape of acquaintance LOUDON (AP) — A 17-year-old Loudon youth has been charged with two counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault for allegedly raping a 15-year-old girl. Concord police allege James Morse raped the girl June 6 in a remote area of the city. Morse and the girl know each other. Lt. Keith Mitchell described the incident as a “forcible rape.” Morse was released on $20,000 personal recognizance bail and is scheduled to be arraigned July 20. Mitchell tells The Concord Monitor the alleged assault occurred on District 5 Road. It was not clear if Morse had a lawyer.
Lebanon apartments DNA testing dog poop to catch owners not cleaning up after
LEBANON (AP) — Here’s the scoop: Some apartment complexes are using DNA testing on dog doo to find out who’s not cleaning up after their pets. The Timberwood Commons in Lebanon, N.H., opened this year and already has had problems with some residents who aren’t cleaning up messes their dogs leave. So manager Debbie Violette is going to use commercially available DNA sampling kits to check the DNA that dogs leave behind when they go. “We’ve tried doing the warning letters. We’ve tried all sorts of things,” she said Friday. “It’s always a problem. It’s just that the majority of people are responsible pet owners and there are a few who are not.” see DOG POOP page 18

Lynch decides no good would come from veto of Republicans’ state budget plan CONCORD (AP) — Democratic Gov. John Lynch announced Friday he will let a $10.2 billion, Republican-crafted budget for New Hampshire become law without his signature. Advocacy groups with clients who face reduced services and the union representing most state workers had urged Lynch to veto the budget. But Lynch said a veto would not lead to a better budget and could cause government to shut down. Lynch said he and others raised many concerns throughout the budget process that Republican lawmakers ignored. “Given the Legislature’s rejection of proposed remedies to the problems in the budget, it is clear that a veto would not lead to a better budget,” Lynch said in a statement. “Second, there could be serious repercussions to the people of our great state if there is no budget in place on July 1: vital services could be unavailable to our citizens, including everything from driver’s license renewal services, permitting required for businesses and critical road repairs.” He said state parks could be closed for the Fourth of July, employees and private contractors wouldn’t get paid and the state’s credit rating could be affected. Republican House Speaker William O’Brien had tentatively scheduled a session on Thursday to vote to override a veto on the two-bill budget package. His office said Friday after Lynch’s announcement that no session will be held. The Senate said it would not meet, either. “It is great news for New Hampshire that Governor Lynch realizes the importance of having a budget that lives within our means and delivers tax cuts that will grow our economy,” O’Brien, of Mont Vernon, said in a statement.
Senate President Peter Bragdon, R-Milford, said the budget is balanced and does not raise taxes or fees. But Lynch outlined a number of objections he had to the budget and said New Hampshire deserves better. “This budget puts college out of reach for too many families, jeopardizing our state’s successful economic strategy,” Lynch said. “It will drive up the cost of health care and put health care at risk for too many of our most vulnerable families, and undercuts some of the basic workings of state government, impacting the services expected by our citizens.” Lynch had proposed a budget in February that cut most state agency budgets by 5 percent and included a series of reforms to improve efficiency, many of which are in the final budget. After accounting for last-minute cuts to bring this year’s budget into balance, the GOP budget funded by state taxes is about 8 percent less than the current two-year budget. Overall spending is about 6 percent less. Lynch objected to deep cuts to the state’s colleges and universities. The final budget cuts aid almost in half to the University System of New Hampshire and makes deep cuts to the Community College System. Because of the cut, the university system is eliminating up to 200 jobs, making significant changes in benefits, deferring repairs and dipping into reserves. Tuition and fees for in-state students living on campus will rise 8.7 percent at the University of New Hampshire and 9.7 percent at Plymouth State University and Keene State College. The increases will cost students and their families hundreds of dollars. “Our state’s economic success is based on our skilled and educated workforce,” Lynch said. “This see NO VETO page 18

‘Undocumented’ my you-know-what With great fanfare and elite media sympathy, Jose Antonio Vargas publicly declared himself an “undocumented immigrant” this week. “Undocumented” my you-know-what. In the felony-friendly pages of The New York Crimes — er, Times — the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist turned illegal-alien activist spilled the beans on all the illegal IDs he amassed over the years. He had documents coming out of his ears. The Times featured full-color photos of Vargas’ fake document trove — including a fake passport with a fake name, a fake green card and a Social Security card his grandfather doctored for him at a Kinko’s. He committed perjury repeatedly on federal I-9 employment eligibility forms. In 2002, while pursuing his journalism career goals, an immigration lawyer told him he needed to accept the consequences of his law-breaking and return to his native Philippines. Following the rules would have meant a 10-year bar to reentry into America. Making false claims of citizenship is a felony offense. Document fraud is a felony offense. Vargas, who frames himself as a helpless victim, freely chose instead to secure yet more dummy documents. He used a friend’s address to obtain an Oregon driver’s license under false pretenses. It gave him an eight-year golden ticket to travel by car, board trains and airplanes, work at prestigious newspapers, and even gain access to the White House — where crack Secret Service agents allowed him to attend a state dinner using his bogus Social Security number. At least Vargas tells the truth when he says he’s not alone. Go visit a 7-11 in the D.C. suburbs. Or the countless vendors in MacArthur Park in East L.A. Or any of the 19 cities in 11 states from Massachusetts to Ohio to Kentucky where a massive, Mexico-based “highly sophisticated and violent” fraudulent-document trafficking ring operated until February 2011. “Undocumented workers” and “undocumented immigrants” have plenty of documents. The persistent use of these open-borders euphemisms to describe Vargas and countless millions like him is a perfect illumination of the agenda-driven, dominant progressive media. They’re as activist inside their newsrooms as Vargas is out in the open now. Bleeding-heart editors were hoaxed by a prominent colleague, exposed to liability, and yet
still champion his serial subversion of the law. San Francisco Chronicle editor Phil Bronstein bragged that he was “duped” by Vargas, but endorses his “subterfuge” because Vargas’ lobbying campaign for the illegal-alien student bailout known as the DREAM Act “just might lubricate the politically tarred-up wheels of government and help craft sane immigration policy.” Who’s insane? The Vargas deceit is not an object lesson about America’s failure to show compassion. It’s another stark reminder of America’s dangerous failure to learn from 9/11. Time and again, security experts have warned about how jihadists have exploited lax immigration and ID enforcement. Driver’s licenses are gateways into the American mainstream. They allow residents to establish an identity and gain a foothold into their communities. They help you open bank accounts, enter secure facilities, board planes, and do things like drive tractor-trailers carrying hazardous materials. It’s been nearly 10 years since several of the 19 9/11 hijackers operated in the country using hundreds of illicitly obtained fake driver’s licenses and IDs. Most states tightened licensing rules, yet Vargas easily obtained a driver’s license not only in Oregon, but more recently in Washington State. He again used a friend’s residence to pass muster. Washington State’s licensing bureaucracy still does not check citizenship. The man sitting in the White House campaigned to keep driver’s license laws as loose as possible for the open-borders lobby. He appointed illegal-alien lobbyists to top federal immigration positions. His head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement just signed a memo pushing the DREAM Act through by administrative fiat. And the privacy of illegal aliens still trumps national security. I ask again: Who’s insane? Vargas believes his sob story is an argument for giving up on immigration enforcement and passing a mass amnesty. It’s a sob story, all right. Homeland security officials across the country should be weeping at the open mockery Vargas and his enablers have made of the law.

Her weekly column is carried by more than 100 newspapers.)
Like Scott & Sandy, many professors are stuck in analog world To the editor, I read Scott Cracraft’s sequel to Leo Sandy’s “Dream School” letter. Like Professor Sandy’s story, this one would have been better left unsaid. Scott opines that his Dream School would be a public school, be overseen by an elected school board, corporal punishment would not be allowed, corporations could contribute to the school (with restrictions), history and social studies would be taught but, to be sure, America’s historic “dark side” would be exposed, and children would be taught to love America without becoming “ethnocentric” (i.e. we’re not so special, you see). Scott’s Dream School would also teach English, foreign languages, the arts, and health and sex education (Scott didn’t mention a parental opt out ability.). Evolution would be taught and anything to do with religion would be gleaned only as part of courses in literature or the humanities. In addition to students taking college preparatory courses, others could opt to take courses in the manual arts. A reward for the seniors is that they would be allowed to take a trip to the nation’s capitol. Professor Cracraft then winds up his thesis with the command that teachers not be scapegoats for “rightwing” politicians (can I assumed that it’s okay if they’re made scapegoats by “left wing” politicians?) and, while they may unionize, the teachers would be treated fairly whether unionized or not. He further “dreams” that the teachers would be accorded the respect and wages that their training and experience have earned. (But Scott, that would mean rating and ranking on a bell curve. Professor Sandy wouldn’t like that.) Scott then closes out with the admonition that no public funds (vouchers) be given to students whose family opts to put them in a private school and he wants to assure everyone that private and home schooled children must meet high standards. (Wouldn’t it be nice if the public system could reach the same levels as the private schools?) My first question to Scott is this: Can you point out what you’re asking for in your Dream School that doesn’t presently exist in our school systems? Looks to me that you’re asking for a
continuation of what presently exists. Same-O! Same-O! My next question is this: Where in your Dream School, is the plan for improving on the abysmal results which show our education systems to be in a steady decline as compared to the rest of the world (http:// w w w. n y t i m e s . c o m / 2 0 0 7 / 1 2 / 0 5 / education/05scores.html) — even though our per pupil costs are the highest in the world ?(http://www.usatoday.com/news/education/2003-0916-education-comparison_x...) The topic of school costs wasn’t mentioned in Scott’s letter, but it needs to be addressed: How do you propose to bring education costs down to levels which are more closely matched with the expenditures of other developed countries? And, this important issue wasn’t addressed in Scott’s “Dream School”, but it needs an answer: How do you plan to raise our national average graduation rates from 69-70-percent (50-percent in urban areas) up to the 90-95-percent enjoyed by the private schools? My last question is this: Why do educators feel they have the right to tell the taxpaying citizenry that they cannot provide a voucher option to a student/family who desires something better? Just who is the “boss”? A short time ago I came across a piece that showed that part of our problem in our public system is that the kids, in many respects, are way ahead of their teachers. You see, like Scott and Professor Sandy, many educators are relatively stuck in the “analog” world in which they grew up, and in which the learned their craft. The young people, by the time they’re in high school, have had many years experience in the “digital” world. Quite frankly, they are bored with what is trying to be given to them in the old analog ways. It appears that the teachers may need to catch up to the kids. In business, I was taught that it was always the responsibility of the communicator to ensure that the listeners could understand and comprehend the message, that no prior level of understanding could be assumed. Maybe it’s time for educators to put the dreams aside for a while and get practical by understanding what they see next page

LETTERS Bugs will tell the tale of the health of the upper Merrimack River To the editor, Any evening from now until midOctober will find anglers from the beginning of the Merrimack in Franklin to Garvins Falls trying their luck on the Merrimack River, hoping the next cast will be the one to prompt a decent fish tale. But not all those who plumb the great river’s depths are pursuing the trout, salmon, bass, and other fish that call the Merrimack home. Some, it turns out, are seeking much smaller prey – mayfly, stonefly, and caddisfly larvae – in an effort to determine the health of the river and its inhabitants and help the communities that share its banks decide how to manage to the resource. Volunteers with the Upper Merrimack River Local Advisory Committee’s (UMRLAC) Upper Merrimack Monitoring Program (UMMP) will be setting traps called “rock baskets” from Franklin to Bow to catch the bugs that will tell the tale of the river’s health. Catching those bugs and other invertebrates such as clams, snails, water mites, and crawfish and getting a sense of how many of them are in the river is one of the surest ways to determine the water’s ability to maintain life and it’s one of the tasks UMMP volunteers happily tackle every year. UMRLAC was created in 1990 by the New Hampshire Legislature to provide the six communities – Franklin, Northfield, Canterbury, Concord, Boscawen, and Bow – the Upper Merrimack flows through assistance in developing policy regarding the river. If a town wants to know the effects of development on the river’s banks, UMRLAC’s Program can help answer those questions. UMRLAC also keeps
track of activities, such as planning and zoning efforts in each town along the river, and lets the state know what’s happening on the banks of the Merrimack, which for decades was an industrial workhorse powering mills and feeding industry. The river’s industrial days are long gone, though, and it now features fantastic habitat for an array of wildlife while also serving as a resource for boating, swimming, and fishing as well as providing clean and plentiful water to the communities that line its banks – a situation UMRLAC hopes will continue. The committee, currently at 14 members, manages the invertebrate collection effort and the subsequent bug identification program that takes place during the cold, dark winter months. Over time, the collection and identification efforts will give environmental scientists enough information to understand the river’s health and the direction in which it’s heading and will help policy makers decide how to both protect and use the Merrimack. The rock baskets may mean that some fish have to search a little harder for their next meal, but that may just mean better luck for the angler on the bank. Please visit www.MerrimackRiver. org to learn more about the river and watershed, view water quality data, access natural resource information and tools, and to sign up to be notified about river events and news.

Print more money & get it into people’s hand so they can spend it To the editor, Nobody is telling us the truth about our economic situation. The economy sucks. And for a very simple reason: no one has any money. There are several reasons for this. One, the value of our real estate has shriveled, and it will not be coming back soon, if ever. Two, we don’t have jobs or our jobs are paying less. Three, our savings are producing little or no interest. Four, our investments have tanked. Five, no one will lend us money because they know our odds of repaying it are lower. The economy won’t get better until the average person has more money to spend. What can private industry do about this? Nothing, because they can’t hire, make products and sell them to people with no money to buy. What can the government do? Give people more money. The Republicans want to do this through tax cuts, but this is weak, because, among other things, many people are already paying almost no taxes. And the
Republicans also want to cut spending, which is simply taking away with one hand what they give with the other. The only result is more imbalance of wealth — more to the rich, less to the poor. The Democrats want to increase spending, which, if the deficit is to be controlled, leads to increased taxes, which takes away on the one hand what is given on the other. So, what do we do? I believe the Democratic way is the lesser of two evils, because it will help more people in the short run. The choice is simple. We either accept a permanently lowered standard of living, which is what is happening now, or we stop worrying about the deficit and print more money and put it people’s hands. Given the current climate, where even the liberals are financially conservative, this is unlikely. Johan Andersen Laconia

I love living in downtown Laconia & it’s well on the way up now To the editor, For almost half of my life I have lived in New Hampshire. Hopefully, I’ll finish it here. I have seen Main Street go up and down and now, its is well on the way up. The Thursday Outdoor Market is a stroke of genius. Now, I do not make supper on Thursday night. Last night I had the most “sausalishous” sausage ever. Last Sunday I walked Stewart Park. What a treasure. I do resent the ones who do not see the well-placed trash barrels. Planting empty beer cans under shrubs does not make them grow. Every bench had people enjoy-
ing the spot. The, to top it off, we have Larry Frates comes up with the shoe contest. It will be hard to vote. There is so much talent in this area, I am always amazed. So many whom I know did shoes, it we be hard to vote. Warren Clement’s idea for colored glass ornaments is great, too. They give me unique inexpensive gifts. All I can say is, I love living in beautiful downtown Laconia. The people here, our police department, are all great — the greatest. Hannelore Spence Laconia

LETTERS It’s nearly impossible to ﬁre bad teachers, let along marginal ones To the editor, My good friend Leo Sandy spent a 1,000 words describing his fantasy dream school. How about the taxpayers and college tuition payers describing theirs. — The dream school would end the runaway, non stop, COST of education often a twice the rate on inflation, sometimes even more for two decades. — The dream school would produce SMARTER KIDS. No matter what comparison with other countries America is always well down the list from the top of performing countries despite the highest spending per student of any country on earth. — The dream school would be far more PRODUCTIVE ( as measured by more students educated at less cost). Ideas from teachers or management that contribute to ever improved ratios of cost would be recognized and highly REWARDED. — The dream school would have education delivered by non unionized teachers/professors in a nurtured environment where the relentless, measured and monitored pursuit of excellence never ends both for students and TEACHERS. — The dream school, absent unions, would financially reward teaching excellence for it’s real and true value. The least effective 20-percent of teachers in any school would be notified they had one year to change that status or be removed from service for cause. The dream school would be a place where the students interests would indeed be put BEFORE all others. Most importantly that of the teachers/ professors. Unionization of labor no matter where it exists is fundamentally and forever at odds with management. Whether it be a factory or a school where turning out the best product at the lowest possible cost is the primary objective. Efficient and productive delivery of education conflicts head on with labor unions pri-
mary goal of increasing membership to collect higher dues and escalating salaries and benefits into perpetuity. The unions primary goal IS NOT smarter kids taught as cost effectively as possible. In fact often is the antithesis of that objective. Costs of education are out of control at every level from K through college. Innovation in education is non existent, productivity is nil, intelligence of graduates is ( at best) flat, and other counties are spurting ahead on the world stage where the jobs wars are already being fought. Education’s reaction? Teacher protests in Wisconsin illustrate both the response and the problem perfectly. Three, fully tax payer funded pensions are not enough and teacher wage and benefit packages averaging $100,000.00 are not enough either. Education has become not about what is BEST for the KIDS, but what is best for teachers/professors. Macro education is completely dominated by union rules and regulations. It is near impossible to get rid of lousy teachers let alone marginal ones that may teach for 40 years. A mere three teachers per ten thousand are terminated for cause. Clear evidence of the regulatory nightmare to rid a school of a bad teacher. The same union vigor and legal intensity to protect teachers nationwide from dismissal simultaneously guarantees the “dummying down “ of the collective body of teaching excellence to deliver the absolute very best education that any kid can be exposed to. The cost of “dummying down” on the kids? Astronomical. The cost of” dummying down” for America? A loss of respect for not being the brightest and best plus the loss of economic prosperity that come with that accomplishment. The latest proof of utter failure? Last weeks headline “just 12-percent of high school graduates are proficient in American history”. Tony Boutin Gilford

Laconia officer pulls man from golf cart as he allegedly flees; DWI charged for a 4th time By Gail OBer
LACONIA — A Northfield man who was driving a gocart on Academy Street here was arrested Monday evening and charged with his fourth driving while intoxicated offense. Police said Warren Goodale, 45, of 427 Sandogardy Pond Warren Goodale Road was spotted by Patrol Officer Derek Gray while (Laconia Police photo) Gray was on a routine bicycle patrol in the Clay and Academy Streets neighborhood. In his affidavit, Gray said he saw Goodale pull out from a driveway at 73 Academy Street and drive away from where he was bicycling. He said he went to the driveway and waited for Goodale to return. He said Goodale returned via the Academy Street sidewalk and when he saw Gray, who was wearing a police uniform, Goodale pulled into roadway. Gray said when he motioned for Goodale to return to the driveway, he drove back up on to the sidewalk, slowing as he approached. Gray said Goodale looked at him and accelerated past him, ignoring his commands. Jumping back onto his bicycle, Gray began chasing Goodale and saw him turn on to Bowman Street and then into the rear parking lot of Cumberland
Farms. Gray said he went into the first exit and stood facing the go-cart. Goodale allegedly angled the cart toward Gray and accelerated. Gray pushed his bicycle out of the way and jumped to one side. As Goodale zoomed past him, Gray grabbed his arm, pulled him off the go-cart and placed him face down on the sidewalk. Gray called for a backup and was able to handcuff him. Gary said Goodale’s breath smelled of alcohol and his speech was slurred and slowed. When Gray told him he want to perform a field sobriety test, Goodale allegedly refused the test and said he was “caught” driving drunk. Affidavits and complaints indicate Goodale was convicted of driving while intoxicated on Jan. 29, 2002, June 2, 2003 and July 7, 2007. He was convicted of being a habitual offender in March of 2007. Goodale is charged with a Class B felony of driving while intoxicated - fourth offense, one count of being a felony-level habitual offender, one Class A misdemeanor of resisting arrest one reckless operation violation. He was ordered held on $25,000 personal recognizance or $2,500 cash bail and is ordered to live in Pittsfield should he post bail. Judge Jim Carroll also ordered him not to drink any alcohol or non-prescribed drugs and to report daily to the Pittsfield Police. Goodale is also subject to random drug testing and re-detention should police detect alcohol on his breath.
YOUNG from page one Baer said yesterday that she had reservations about Myers’ lack of firsthand experience and formal qualifications in municipal administration and preferred the other, unnamed finalist, who has served as a city manager for 17 years and holds a master’s degree in public administration. “Of the two I thought he was more qualified to take care of the city,” she said. Baer noted that Finance Director Pam Reynolds will retire next week and Marie Bradley, longtime executive assistant to the city manager, will retire in August. In the circumstances, she felt the city required the more experienced and qualified candidate. However, she stressed that “I want Mr. Myers
to succeed and will work to support him for the good of the city.” Although Young confessed he has not met Myers, his misgivings about him stem from the process of his appointment and his approach to the property tax cap, which Dover adopted in 2007. Young said that the process of selecting a city manager should have been more transparent and open as well as afforded the public an opportunity to participate. “I would have taken Myers on in my column,” he said. Young could be called the father of the Laconia tax cap that was adopted in 2005 and he believes Myers opposed a similar cap when it was later proposed in Dover. see next page

Gilford asks state to divert traffic away from Cat Path GILFORD — Along with lowering the speed limit on Cat Path the Board of Selectmen have asked the New Hampshire Department of Transportation (DOT) to erect signage diverting traffic from the narrow residential road running between routes 11-A (Cherry Valley Road) and 11-B (Intervale Road). After a public hearing earlier this month the board voted to reduce the speed limit on Cat Path from 30 mph. to 25 mph., post a weight limit of six tons and erect signage designating the road for local traffic only” in response to complaints from residents that heavy traffic posed a hazard. At the hearing the selectmen learned that global positioning sensor (GPS) units as well as Map Quest direct motorists going to and from Gunstock Mountain Resort to travel between Route 11-A and Route 11-B by way of Cat Path‚ a shortcut sparing 1.6 miles. In a
letter to DOT, the board explained that Cat Path is a steep, winding road, just 17 feet wide, with inadequate drainage, base and pavement to carry the volume of through traffic currently using the road. The board asked DOT to erect signs on Route 11-B near its junction with Cat Path and its intersection with Route 11-A directing southbound traffic to Gunstock as well as signage on Route 11-A near its junction with Cat Path directing northbound traffic to Route 3 and I-93 by way of Route 11-B. At the same time, the board suggested DOT consider adopting a regulation and posting a sign to prohibit right turns from Route 11-A on to Cat Path, which would be enforced by the Gilford Police Department. Meanwhile, the town is seeking to erect a 50-foot flagpole to fly a 10 foot by 15 foot American flag at see next page
from preceding page According to reports in Foster’s Daily Democrat, Myers voted to place the tax cap on the ballot, but took no position either for or against it. However, in the debate preceding the vote Myers found himself at loggerheads with city councilor David Scott, a friend of Young’s who led the campaign to introduce the Dover cap in 2007. Myers and Scott agreed to cohost a public forum on the issue. But, just two days before the scheduled event Myers bowed out. In an e-mail to Scott and other councilors, which he released to the press, Myers wrote “I am going to withdraw my participation and allow you to be the only ‘host’ which is something you have been pushing for anyway. I had expected this session to be educational and an opportunity for Dover residents to ask questions of you and unbiased experts, in a free flowing, open dialog. Unfortunately, that does not seem to be your expectation as well.” Later he told reporters “the deck is already stacked with a pro tax cap panel.” Along with the city attorney, finance director and school district business manager, Scott invited Mike Verhorks and Jenny Watson of Laconia along with Ken Merrifield and Tony Giunta of Franklin, all ardent supporters of a tax cap, to serve on the panel. Young said he was also invited, but declined. “I couldn’t have added to what Mike and Jenny would say and had other battles to fight here,” he said. In his e-mail, Myers questioned whether Verhoeks and Watson, in particular, qualified as “experts” on tax caps. Foster’s Daily Democrats reported that the forum, “quickly turned into a heated debate among the crowd of nearly 200 people, at least half of whom left the meeting in frustration before it ended.” Scott reportedly never handed the microphone to the city attorney, finance director or school district business manager.
The outcome prompted Myers to host his own forum a week later. The city manager, city attorney and school district business manager were joined on the panel by two officials from the New Hampshire Local Government Center. Myers invited Scott, who declined because of a prior commitment. “In contrast to last week’s tax cap forum,” Foster’s Daily Democrat reported, “residents calmly asked specific, technical questions.” Myers told the press that the event was the “educational session” he envisioned and, unlike the earlier forum, it focused on Dover. “Last week we heard about other communities and learned a lot, but tonight we focused on Dover,” he said. The tax cap debate was neither the first nor last that put Myers and Scott at odds, during the mayor’s second and third terms when Scott served on the council. The two were on opposite sides of virtually every major issue, many of them decided by five-to-four votes. In particular, the men crossed swords over finances, once moving an editorial writer to remark that Myers gave Scott “a lesson in how to read a budget along with a short course in basic math.” In 2009, when Scott left the council, Myers presented him with an abacus. “This is how I learned math,” said Scott, who earned degrees at Harvard University and Harvard Business School. Young said that on hearing that the council selected Myers as the next manager, he called Scott, but as of yesterday had yet to hear from him. The Laconia City Council is expected to vote on the appointment of Myers on Thursday, June 30.

FLOOD from page 2 by the National Weather Service, but it was little consolation in Minot. “This has been a very trying time for our commu-
nity,” Zimbelman said. “It’s emotionally draining for all of us.” As they had the past two days, emergency officials focused on protecting water and sewer systems to avoid the need for more evacuations. They were confident about the water system, but a little less so about the sewer treatment plant. It had been sandbagged as high as possible. Zimbelman said water coming up through a storm sewer briefly began to erode one downtown levee before it was controlled. Also of concern was the Broadway Bridge, a key north-south route. Levees protecting the northern approach were being raised, but Army Corps of Engisee next page

The Sanbornton winery’s tasting room will host its grand opening on Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Laconia Daily Sun photo/Adam Drapcho)
Grand opening for Sanbornton winery is today By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
SANBORNTON — An inviting bouquet, acidity balanced with sweetness, flavors that emerge, develop and fade as they pass the palate, a good glass of wine requires several characteristics. Similarly, the confluence of many winds has resulted in a climate for winemaking in New England that is perhaps better than ever before. Among the new wineries exploring the possibilities of the market is Heritage Woods, which will celebrate the grand opening of its tasting room on Saturday. Hermit Woods Winery is located at the Taylor Road home of Bob Manley, one of three men behind from preceding page neers Lt. Col. Kendall Bergmann said it was touch and go. The levee work also protected the campus of nearby Minot State University. Members of the state’s congressional delegation pressed for a federal emergency declaration making people eligible for individual assistance, a step they
the venture. Manley is joined by business partners and fellow wine enthusiasts Ken Hardcastle and Chuck Lawrence. They met through mountain biking, formed a friendship over home-brewed beer and when they discovered that great wines could be made from fruit grown in northern New England, they decided it was time to go into business. “This is a passion of ours, not only are we passionate about the potential of winemaking, the sharing of this with others is what is exciting for us,” said Manley. “It’s going to help pay for our hobby.” The Hermit Woods Winery is possible thanks to several developments, Manley said. see next page said was needed for the Federal Emergency Management Agency to set up transitional housing centers.

from preceding page “Technology has really changed this industry,” he said. “Going back to Thomas Jefferson, people have been trying to figure out how to grow grapes on the eastern seaboard.” Wine breeders late last century were able to develop several hybrid vines which can thrive in climates far colder than southern Europe. These grapes have allowed for an explosion in the number of wineries in New York and New England. In addition to the ability to grow grapes in New Hampshire, Manley said the increasing desire of the consumer to buy local products has strengthened the ability of local producers to sell their wines at a profitable price. “You don’t need to buy a wine that was shipped from France or California,” he said. The “buy local” movement can be seen in the proliferation of local farmers’ markets, Manley said, adding that Hermit Woods plans to attend some local markets as part of its distribution strategy. A third and final factor that gives the Hermit Woods team encouragement is that the wine world no longer considers “fruit wines” to be a category consisting solely of sweet dessert beverages. “Fruit wine is gaining more respect,” Manley said. Although the fruits they use may contain a lot of sugar, Hardcastle, the

winemaker of the bunch, ferments their wines so that most of the sugars are consumed by the yeast, resulting in wines that are dry to semi-sweet. Some of their wines will be made from grapes shipped from places such as South America. However, Hardcastle said the focus of the winery will be to produce wines and blends that highlight ingredients local to central New Hampshire. “Everything in the glass is part of the surroundings. It captures it all, makes it fun,” Hardcastle said. They will seek sources that are as local and as organic as possible. They’ve got wines including the following local ingredients: crab apples, apples, blueberries, honey, blackberries, elderberies, peaches, rosehips, tomatoes, grapes, rhubarb, pears and plums. They’ve even got a wine made from a variety of kiwi that will grow in New Hampshire. The more local product they buy, the more locallyproduced fruits will be available, Lawrence said, as they hope to help develop a market for the produce. “If there’s a demand for it, people will grow it.” Discovering the potential for wines made from stuff they never thought possible has captured the imagination of the trio. “It’s fascinating to me to come at this with a fresh perspective,” said Lawrence. “Things that grow well here can make great wines.” Because this is such a novel approach, to use local fruits to try and make wines as good as anywhere else in the world, Lawrence said they feel as if they’re exploring a kind of frontier, discovering new possibilities with each batch. “It’s almost an unending barrel of discovery.” Those who wish to taste for themselves what those barrels of discovery contain can do so by visiting the winery’s tasting room, which will be open from 11 to 5 p.m. on Saturday and for the rest of the summer will be open from 1 to 5 p.m. on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and 11 to 5 on the weekends. Tasters will be asked to buy a wine glass for $2.50, there is no charge per sample. Bottles available for sale range from $12 to $24.

WHITEY from page 2 route on Santa Monica Boulevard,” he said. Prosecutors asked that Bulger be held without bail, saying he is danger to the community and may try to threaten witnesses. “He’s also, quite obviously, a risk of flight,” Kelly said. Kelly also said Catherine Greig, Bulger’s longtime girlfriend who was arrested with him, told court officials that Bulger’s brother may be willing to assist him in posting bail. Bulger did not ask for a detention hearing, but his lawyer said he may later make an argument that Bulger should be released on bail while awaiting trial. The amount of money found in Bulger’s apartment confirmed a longheld belief by investigators that he kept large stashes of cash for a life on the run. “We clearly don’t think this is his last stash,” Kelly said. When Bulger walked into the courtroom, he saw his brother William, the former powerful leader of the state Senate, seated in the second row. Whitey Bulger smiled at him and mouthed, “Hi.” His brother smiled back. Greig appeared in court a few minutes later on charges of harboring a fugitive. She asked for a hearing to determine whether she can be released on bail, and one was scheduled for next week. Bulger, the former boss of the Winter Hill Gang, Boston’s Irish mob, embroiled the FBI in scandal after he disappeared in 1995. It turned out that Bulger had been an FBI informant for two decades, feeding the bureau information on the rival New England Mafia, and that he fled after a retired Boston FBI agent tipped him off that he was about to be indicted. The retired agent, John Connolly Jr., was sent to prison for protecting Bulger. The FBI depicted Connolly as a rogue agent, but Bulger associates described more widespread corruption in testimony at Connolly’s trial and in lawsuits filed by the families of people allegedly killed by Bulger and his gang. Kevin Weeks, Bulger’s right-hand man, said the crime lord stuffed envelopes with cash for law enforcement officers at holiday time. “He used to say that Christmas was for cops and kids,” Weeks testified.

New York lawmakers legalize gay marriage
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York lawmakers narrowly voted to legalize same-sex marriage Friday, handing activists a breakthrough victory in the state where the gay rights movement was born. New York will become the sixth state where gay couples can wed and the biggest by far. “We are leaders and we join other proud states that recognize our families and the battle will now go on in other states,” said Sen. Thomas Duane, a Democrat. Gay rights advocates are hoping the vote will galvanize the movement around the country and help it regain momentum after an almost identical bill was defeated here in 2009 and similar measures failed in 2010 in New Jersey and this year in Maryland and Rhode Island. Though New York is a relative latecomer in allowing gay marriage, it is considered an important prize for advocates, given the state’s size and New York City’s international stature and its role as the birthplace of the gay rights movement, which is considered to have started with the Stonewall riots in Greenwich Village in 1969. The New York bill cleared the Republican-controlled state Senate on a 33-29 vote. The Democratled Assembly, which passed a different version last week, is expected to pass the new version with stronger religious exemptions and Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who campaigned on the issue last year, has promised to sign it. Same-sex couples can begin marrying begin 30 days after that.

City sees activity but Wide Open Saloon still standing By Gail OBer
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — Despite the appeal of a Laconia District Court order to raze the charred remains of the Wide Open Saloon and motel at Weirs Beach, the city code enforcement officer remains optimistic the building will be demolished by the owner. William Stewart said yesterday that the city has not yet challenged Brandi Baldi’s appeal to Belknap County Superior Court of a Laconia District Court ruling that orders her to tear down the burned-out shell of the once historic hotel. The city requested the order. Stewart confirmed yesterday that Baldi has applied for a demolition permit and said he spoke with construction contractors who he saw on the property yesterday. Stewart, who has never entered the building, said he got a phone call late yesterday morning from a city planning employee who reported she saw one of the doors of the saloon open while she was checking the area to make sure all the motorcycle week vendor tents were gone. That Stewart never entered the building is the basis for Baldi’s appeal of Judge Jim Carroll’s order. Through her lawyers, she has argued by means of the appeal that because he has never been inside, he couldn’t possibly determine the building was in imminent danger of collapse, as he argued in court. Stewart said he went to the site yesterday around 12:30 p.m. and conversed with a man who told him he was from an asbestos evaluation company and was completing an inspection of the building. Stewart said the asbestos evaluation company was not hired by the city. The city has maintained that its ultimate end

game is to see the charred remains of the building other Weirs Beach merchants consider an eyesore demolished. City officials have said they will tear down the building at city expense and attach a lien onto the property to recover its costs. Ideally, Stewart and Acting City Manager Pam Reynolds have said it is preferable for everyone for Baldi to do her own demolition. Baldi has said it is her goal to rebuild and operate another restaurant on the same site. In a related matter, Baldi has filed suit in Merrimack County Superior Court to get the N.H. State Fire Marshal’s Officer to release the documents relating to their inspection of the Sept. 17, 2010 see next page

Lakes Region Real Estate Market Report / Roy Sanborn
Great deals? You be the judge With over 1,300 homes on the market right now in the Lakes Region towns I report on (Belknap County + Moultonborough) there ought to be some pretty good deals out there right now. It really is a great time to be a buyer. Interest rates are still amazingly low, there are plenty of homes in every price category to look at, and prices have fallen considerably. Here are a few properties that may, or may not, be a good deal. You can’t tell what’s a bargain until you go look, but given the fact that the following homes are on the market well under their tax assessment they might be a place to start. Antique homes don’t seem to be as desirable as they once were, but they do have a certain allure to old home purists if they are in the right location and decent condition. The home at 143 Sanborn Road in Sanbornton is in the historic district. It was once owned and restored by Robert and Richard Wiggins who are well known for their work bringing antique homes back to life. This home was built in 1805 and has 2,426-square-feet of living space with three bedrooms, two baths, two fireplaces, wide pine flooring, built-ins, updated kitchen, and an attached barn for the critters. You can get back to basics here although the .86-acre lot isn’t going to allow a huge garden. The property is now bank owned and there will be some repairs necessary. But, the property is offered at only $114,900 which is 44-percent of the current tax assessed value of $260,700. I would say someone is going to get a great deal on an antique home. Another possible good deal on a bank owned property is at 14 Highcrest Lane in Belmont. This 3,048-square-foot home was built in 1996 and has three bedrooms, one bath, an open concept layout, hardwood floors, front porch, two car garage, and a 1.23-acre lot on a cul-de-sac. It looks like it needs carpets, paint, appliances, and some good old TLC but it is priced at 46-percent of its assessment at $162,900. It’s certainly worth a look if you are in the market for a home in Belmont. I like the looks of the home at 246 Durrell Mountain Road in Belmont. The good thing here is that it is not bank owned so you can get some history and

disclosures on the property. This 2,036-square-foot cape was built in 1988, has three bedrooms, one and three quarter baths, master bedroom suite, a stone fireplace in the living room, attached and detached two car garages, and a 3.74acre lot. This home is listed at $199,900 which is 67-percent of the current assessment of $296,400. Good deal? Go see… There are also some potential waterfront buys out there. On Waukewan there is a very affordable sixties vintage waterfront cottage at 25 Chapman Point in Meredith. Waukewan is a real hidden treasure so don’t tell anyone else about this. Anyway, this seasonal two bedroom, one bath cottage has a little over 1,000-square-feet of space, a large eat in kitchen, a fireplace to take the chill off, a deck overlooking a peaceful cove, and a one car garage which has a bunkroom for the in-laws. The cottage sits on a .27-acre lot with 100 feet of owned frontage and you have access to a shared sandy beach next door (not sure what other kind of beach there is if they aren’t sandy?) This property is offered at $349,000 which is 21-percent below the assessed value of $440,500. Over on Winnipesaukee at 17 Chipmunk Lane in Moultonborough there is another cottage with three bedrooms, two and a half baths, and 964-square-feet of living space being offered at $425,000. It has a master suite (sweet!), a large living room, a gas fireplace, a sunny kitchen, and a detached two car garage with possible living space above for your new found relatives. The cottage sits on a .39-acre level lot with 100 feet of frontage with another one of those sandy beaches and a three fingered dock. This property is priced at 66-percent of the town’s current assessed value so it just might be worth checking out. So if you are looking to buy a home right now you’ll find plenty of potential bargains. Meet with a REALTOR® and go look. Just remember though, a cheap price alone doesn’t mean that it’s a good deal. You need to consider the repairs or upgrades see next page
LACONIA — John Moriarty has resigned as executive director of the Belknap Mill Society, a position he has held for three years. The announcement was made Friday by Stephen Cotter, president of the society’s board of trustees. Cotter said Moriarty cited the time demands of his other business interests in the Lakes Region as the reason for his departure. “John has been the executive director of the Belknap Mill for three years,” reported Cotter. “During this period John has demonstrated a strong devotion to the organization and its mission.” Cotter said a transition team has been established to manage the day-to-day operation of the Mill and appoint a search committee to select a replacement. Established more than 40 years ago, the Belknap Mill Society’s mission is to maintain the Belknap Mill, a building of unique, national, historical importance. The Mill serves as the Official Meetinghouse of New Hampshire, as a center promoting support for the arts, cultural growth, and community activities. HOUSE from page 2 Obama had run roughshod over the Constitution, ignoring the authority of the legislative branch that the founding fathers had insisted has the power to declare war. While Republican as well as Democratic presidents have often ignored the War Powers Resolution, a frustrated House voted earlier this month to rebuke Obama for failing to provide a “compelling rationale” for the Libyan mission and for launching U.S. military forces without congressional approval. They requested a report to Congress on the operation. Obama further incensed lawmakers last week when he said he didn’t need authorization because the operation did not rise to full-blown hostilities, a decision he reached by overruling some of his advisers. It’s not about Gadhafi, foes of the authorization said. “I support the removal of the Libyan regime. I support the president’s authority as commander in chief, but when the president chooses to challenge the powers of the Congress I, as speaker of the House, will defend the constitutional authority of the legislature,” said Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio.

Pooch Café LOLA
By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Making yourself a priority feels strange at first, but you’ll soon get used to it. You’ll get along with yourself better inside your own head, and you’ll also relate to others in a way that’s more fulfilling. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Someone is dreaming of a future with you. This person is sensitive to your real feelings, qualities and desires. Do you also want something so permanent and serious? CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). In the past, you’ve concocted fantasies in your head that rarely resemble what really happens. As you gain experience, the fantasy gets more and more realistic and becomes likely to happen as you dream it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Someone with a big bag of problems will enjoy telling you about them. You can listen without getting involved, as long as you are not drained by the process. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’re impulsive, especially when you get around that certain inspiring someone. Your pulse quickens, and you feel ready to seize opportunities and dive deeper into life. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 25). Your competitive urges are a sign of health and vitality. It’s only natural to want the best for yourself and your people. Keep your spirit of competition in check and channel it well, and July brings victory. There will be a windfall in August. A chase begins in September and lasts indefinitely. There’s a heartfelt reunion in November. Taurus and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 14, 38, 50, 32 and 27.
by Richard Thompson
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Greater physical challenge will improve your life on many levels. Initially, your motivation to push yourself may be low, but you are eventually going to feel better as a result of doing this. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Life brings a whacky new influence into your world. You have no idea how this strange turn of events will fit in with your particular goals, interests and priorities, but stay open-minded, and it all comes together. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You can afford to be choosy when it comes to adding new people to your support system. The one who appears to be impacted by your conversation is potentially a good match for you. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You feel friendly and warm toward a person. Yet, you also recognize appropriate boundaries, perhaps having to do with the context of the relationship or the environment you share. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are still gathering information about a person or situation. You will make the best decisions regarding this scene at a later date. So for now, suspend your judgments and evaluations. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You do not think of yourself as superior, but even so, conversation and interaction could take an unwieldy turn and be wrongly interpreted. Tread lightly. Realize that people can be overly touchy at times, and move on. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Persistence often wins out, but that doesn’t mean you should keep trying something that’s not working. Change it up. And borrow a few moves from someone who is winning.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Saturday, June 25, the 176th day of 2011. There are 189 days left in the year.

In 1981, the Supreme Court ruled that male-only draft registration was constitutional. In 2009, death claimed Michael Jackson, the “King of Pop,” in Los Angeles at age 50 and actress Farrah Fawcett in Santa Monica, Calif. at age 62.

Lakes Region Planning Commission updates report of development activity
MEREDITH — The Lakes Region Planning Commission (LRPC) recently completed its annual update of Development Activity in the Lakes Region. The report is a compilation of commercial, industrial, and residential permitting activity and residential subdivision activity for the Lakes Region in 2009, as well as population data from the 2010 Census. The NH Office of Energy and Planning (NH OEP) and the LRPC conduct complementary annual surveys, the results of which provide the data for this report. The LRPC survey data include responses from 23 of the region’s 30 communities, and are viewed to be representative of area development trends. Between 2002 and 2005, total annual housing permitting in New Hampshire was at its peak, averaging 8,733 permits per year. During
this peak, Lakes Region communities issued an average of 1,176 permits per year, or about 14 percent of the state’s annual peak average. The Development Activity in the Lakes Region 2010 Annual Report shows that total annual housing permits in both the state and the region have fallen dramatically in the last five years (2005 to 2009). Permitting in New Hampshire fell from 7,702 permits in 2005 to 2,610 permits in 2009; a statewide decline of 66 percent. During the same five years, total housing permitting in the Lakes Region declined from 1,165 in 2005 to 207 permits issued in 2009, for an 82 percent drop. Single-family housing permits in New Hampshire declined from 5,289 in 2005 to 1,385 in 2009, or 74 percent. In the Lakes Region, single-family housing permits, the lion’s share (84 percent) of permits issued, dropped 80
NO VETO from page 3 undermines our state’s successful economic development strategy.” He also criticized deep cuts to payments for caring for the poor at New Hampshire’s hospitals. He said that will drive up health care costs for individuals and businesses. He criticized cuts to social services, highway projects and auditors at the
state’s tax-collecting agency. Smokers are among the few winners in the budget. They will get a 10-cent break in the cigarette tax, but Lynch said the budget does not account for up to $30 million in lost revenues. He praised Republicans for maintaining school aid, not laying off state troopers, funding services for the disabled and funding the state Veterans Home.

percent (855 permits to 173 permits) in the last five years. Multi-family permits represented 12 percent and manufactured permits represented four percent of the total permits. In 2004, the number of multi-family permits reached it peak at 283 permits. This peak was due to a significant increase in multi-family approvals in the municipalities of Laconia, Meredith, and Northfield. In 2009, that number dropped significantly to 25. Commercial development gathered from Lakes Region survey participants dropped from 265 permits in 2008 to 58 commercial permits in 2009. The town of Meredith issued the greatest number of commercial
permits (28), while the next highest was Wolfeboro with 13 commercial permits issued. Industrial permitting also experienced a decline in survey results, dropping from 9 permits in 2008 to 3 permits in 2009. Electronic copies of the report have been provided to area municipalities. Printed copies are available from the Lakes Region Planning Commission. The report can also be found at the LRPC website, www.lakesrpc.org. The LRPC appreciates the assistance received from the municipalities that took time to respond to the survey questions. For additional information, call 279-8171 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
DOG POOP from page 3 She said residents have been told they must submit samples from their dogs so DNA profiles can be put on file. “I want people to know that we’re serious about this,” she said. More than 30 dogs call the 252-unit complex home. Violette just received the kits from a Knoxville, Tenn., company called PooPrints, a subsidiary of BioPet Vet Lab. Jim Simpson, president of the lab, said about 20 properties in the country have been using the kits. For testing samples, the company provides a feces collection kit. A small amount is put in a solution and mailed back to the lab. DNA is extracted from
the feces. The lab then checks to see if it matches any of the profiles listed for the apartment complex. “It’s one of the coolest things I’ve ever done as a property manager,” said Debbie Logan, who manages the Twin Ponds Development in Nashua, which has identified some problem pet owners through the tests. Violette said that she hasn’t decided what to do if she catches a pet owner not cleaning up after their dog but that they’ll probably be fined. Language about the DNA testing will be included in a lease addendum addressing pet issues, she said. So far, Violette said, she has gotten a positive response from dog owners.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, June 25, 2011— Page 19
Dear Annie: I’m confused about what to do with a situation in my family. At the age of 21, I am the oldest of four children. My parents have been divorced for seven years and still remain good friends. Dad remarried six years ago and is miserable. I know because he told me. I have evidence that makes me believe my father is having an affair with my best friend’s mother. (She is divorced.) I am convinced he is in love with her. I am not condoning his affair, but I want him to be happy. I want him to get out of his current marriage with some integrity left. The only person this is going to hurt is my stepmom. I don’t wish her ill, but I have seen how unhappy my father is and have been hoping for a long time that he could see his way out of his misery. Should I encourage him to fight for his happiness? -- Distraught Son Dear Son: We know you love your father and want him to be happy, but you truly need to stay out of this. Too often, well-meaning family and friends get blamed for whatever happens. You can tell Dad that he deserves to be content and you want that for him. You can also tell him to seek counseling if he’s having trouble. But that’s it. He needs to handle his marriage in his own way. Dear Annie: Why is it that when you hit the magic age of 60, people automatically think of you as being old? I am 62 years old. I do not act old, and I do not dress old. But ever since I turned 60, people have been treating me like I should be sitting in a rocking chair waiting to die. I had a 22-year job with a large company that decided those of us with years of experience should no longer be
working for them. And now it’s impossible to find another position. Companies should not be afraid to hire older people. We are good, reliable and responsible workers. We don’t take time off for maternity leave and are willing to work long and late hours. I have been looking for full-time employment for more than a year. I am not ready to retire. I know how important it is to keep active at any age, so I’ve taken a series of parttime jobs. Please tell businesses not to be afraid to hire an older adult. We are willing to give our all for the betterment of YOUR company. -- Young at Heart Dear Young at Heart: In most instances, companies drop older workers for economic reasons. However, they lose a great deal when it comes to experience and continuity, which can end up costing more in the long run. Seniors can find information on job searches and training at foundation.aarp.org and through experienceworks.org (1-866976-5939). Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Michigan,” who was worried about her future connection to her sons after they marry. Please allow me to give her the advice my father gave to me. Before I married, my father sat me down at the kitchen table and said, “You’ll have a couple of houses, several cars, maybe some kids and even the possibility of another wife, but let me tell you something, boy. You’re only going to have one mother. Treat her well while she’s here.” Two years ago, I buried both parents and have no regrets because I was there for them. -- Still Miss Them

The draft minutes of the June 6 meeting said the “general release of all claims” would be available in the Town Clerk’s Office upon request. The approved version of those minutes included a description of how and when the agreement was reached but not that the release was available for public inspection. The general release says it’s intent is to BUY PEACE (capitals in the original) and also end the town’s legal liability for any legal action Pike may or may not take. There are no records in Belknap County Superior Court involving a lawsuit of any kind referencing Pike and the town. According to the approved June 6 minutes, Town Attorney Laura Spector joined the full board just after 7 p.m. and Pike immediately recused himself and left the room. Following a 13-minute discussion, minutes show Selectman David Morse recused himself from any further discussion but don’t indicate if he left the room. Minutes show the lone remaining selectman, Ronald Cormier, both “moved and seconded a motion to approve the terms of the settlement agreement as discussed including language which would insure that both parties agree to mutually not disclose details of the agreement.” No actual vote was recorded in the minutes. Pike was elected selectman in March of 2008 and re-elected this past spring. Prior to serving as selectman, he was a member of the Planning Board. Deroy was appointed to the position of Town Clerk Tax Collector when former Town Clerk Tax Collector Carol Lacasse retired in May of 2008. DeRoy had been her assistant for three years when she was appointed and was elected to fill the balance of Lacasse term in 2009. She was re-elected to a three year term in March of 2010.

shire insurance laws, a former spouse or employee who had group health insurance can continue group coverage at his or her own expense. In some cases the law provides that spouses or ex-spouses who are 55 or older can continue with their group coverage until age 65 or until he or she become eligible for another plan or Medicare. The confidentially agreement signed by Pike on June 10 and by Cormier on June 14 as the “duly authorized” signatory says the town and Pike had “recently resolved a dispute regarding Mr. Pike’s ability to remain on his ex-wife’s health insurance following their divorce and the party responsible for paying for that health insurance...” The confidentially agreement specifically states any inquiries should be referred to Spector or Atty.

Right-To Know Law and she couldn’t comment further. SEX from page 2 prices and star performance rankings from other members. Southwest Companions had 1,400 members, including former University of New Mexico President F. Chris Garcia, who police said was among the site’s top echelon. Membership was invitationonly, and new members were vetted as they worked their way up through three tiers. The first level was “probation,” Roseman said, where the new clients secured prostitutes through the site. After they hooked up, the prostitute would tell a moderator what she did and how much she was paid. As the members progressed through the “verified” and “trusted” tiers, they gained access to more information about undercover officers and the hookers. The hookers were paid in cash, with prices ranging from $200 for a single act to as much as $1,000 for an hour of time. Police found no evidence students were recruited, or that the site was a university network. David C. Flory, a physics professor at Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey, is suspected of buying the site in 2009. The site was created by a woman named Cara Garrett. Investigators say Garrett was still involved in the ring when she tipped police to its existence in December after being arrested on drug, child abuse and prostitution charges. Flory, 68, who lives in New Jersey but has a home in Santa Fe, told police he bought the site to create a safe place for people to buy and sell sex, referring to it as a hobby, Roseman said. Flory, who used the handle “David 8,” ran the site and was the main moderator, police said. He scolded people for being too graphic and failing to use the site’s acronyms for describing specific acts, according to the criminal complaint. Members were removed if they were arrested or found to have had contact with police.

Red Sox leave 11 men on base & fall to Pittsburgh, 3-1
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Jose Tabata and Lyle Overbay each had two hits and an RBI to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 3-1 win over the Boston Red Sox on Friday night. Paul Maholm (4-8) beat an American League team for the first time in nearly two years by surviving 5 1-3 eventful innings. Joel Hanrahan worked a perfect the ninth to pick up his 21st save in as many chances as the Pirates won their third straight to climb back above .500. Boston starter Jon Lester (9-4) pitched six solid innings but failed to become the AL’s first 10-game
winner, giving up three runs, two earned, while striking out five and walking one. Adrian Gonzalez had two hits to bump his major league-leading average to .360, but the Red Sox left 11 men on base while dropping their third straight to a National League team. The Pirates, in the midst of their best start in a dozen years, added a little quality to their quantity by shutting down baseball’s most potent offense, at least for a night. Pittsburgh improved to 38-37 thanks in large part to another solid performance from the bull-
pen, which shut out the Red Sox over the final 3 2-3 innings. Not that the Red Sox didn’t have their chances, none better than the eighth inning when they put runners on second and third with one out. Reliever Jose Veras struck out Marco Scutaro then got pinchhitter David Ortiz to ground out to short to end the inning. Boston’s second visit to Pittsburgh in over a century provided a fair share of electricity thanks to the thousands of Red Sox fans who were part of the third-largest crowd in PNC Park history. A “Let’s Go Red Sox” chant broke out on the game’s very first pitch, giving it a COLDWELL BANKER RESIDENTIAL BROKERAGE CARES PRESENTS very Fenway Park-like feel. The Pirates, however, E were hardly pushovers. L H A Overbay, who sat out T nd ANNU 2 the three-game series against Baltimore earlier in the week so he could spend more time in the batting cage to work his way out of a prolonged slump, had two crisp hits while Tabata continued his strong play as the leadoff hitter. Maholm struggled with his command, needing $25 BIKE ENTRY FEE includes COOKOUT *$10 FOR COOKOUT 103 pitches — including just 54 strikes — to get through 5 1-3 innings, but R E G I S T R AT I O N AM he managed to keep baseball’s top offense off the scoreboard.

Boston manager Terry Francona hinted he may consider playing Ortiz at first and send Gonzalez to right field but opted not to take a chance on Friday because Francona didn’t want to put any more stress on Boston’s already suspect defense. Instead Mike Cameron got the start in right, but the veteran looked very much like the rookie on a flyball from Mike McKenry in the second. Cameron charged in to make the catch but misjudged the flight and the ball skipped past him, allowing the Pirates to get runners on second and third with no outs. The miscue, officially ruled a double, helped the Pirates take a 2-1 lead.
