School board to discuss special meeting petition Monday night By GAil oBer


GILFORD — At its meeting Monday night, the School Board will discuss the petition signed by nearly 70 residents asking for a special meeting of the School District to discuss the position of superintendent. A representative of the SAU

said the regular meeting will be held in the library at the Gilford Elementary School in anticipation of larger-than-normal attendance. The petition came after district residents voted nearly 2-to-1 during March’s annual SB-2 vote to adhere to the terms of a plan approved by the

district voters in 1998, when Gilford residents chose to separate administratively from Laconia. The plan, approved by the state Department of Education, called for a different management structure than the traditional superintendentdriven one. However, the School Board,

at that time, chose to ignore the voter-approved plan and instituted the traditional public education model that is still in place today. The issue came to the fore during the 2011-12 budget cycle when current Superintendent Paul DeMinico announced see GILFOrd page 12

Kidnapped Calif. girl showed resilience over 18 years

PLACERVILLE, Calif. (AP) — Through it all, the kidnapping, the repeated sexual assaults and the isolation of being hidden away for over 18 years, Jaycee Dugard survived by playing the good girl. She followed the orders of the serial sex offender who had immobilized her with a stun gun in June 1991, stashed her in his car and then laughed to his accomplice-wife that he couldn’t believe he had gotten away with it. Over the following months, if Dugard balked at his commands, Phillip Garrido terrorized her by turning on the gun so she could hear it “zap.” “I didn’t want it to happen again, so I was good,” she recalled in vivid grand jury testimony released Thursday after her abductors were sentenced to prison. She “tried to do what he wanted me to do even though I didn’t like it.” The testimony was unsealed at the request of several media organizations, including The Associated Press. Detailed descriptions of sex abuse were redacted, see GIRL page 13

Bleak U.S. jobs report dampens hopes of steady growth WASHINGTON (AP) — A bleak jobs report suggests the recovery from the Great Recession will be longer and bumpier than many economists had envisioned. Most economists say job growth should strengthen later this year as gasoline prices drop further and the economy recovers from the effects of natural disasters in the U.S. and abroad. But the recovery is starting to weaken 17 months before the 2012 election, which could hurt President Barack Obama’s re-election prospects.

The unemployment rate in May inched up to 9.1 percent from 9 percent, the Labor Department said Friday; when Obama took office, it was 7.8 percent. The Conference Board, a business research group, predicts the rate will be 8.5 percent at the end of next year. That would mean Obama would face a higher unemployment rate than any president running for re-election since World War II. “The recovery has not been derailed, but it’s slow,” said Michelle Meyer, an econo-

mist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. “We’re still in a muddle-through period.” Only 54,000 jobs were created in May, the fewest in eight months. By contrast, an average of 220,000 jobs were created in each of the previous three months. Private companies hired only 83,000 workers in May — the fewest in nearly a year — while state and local governments cut 30,000 jobs. The Dow Jones industrial average finished down 97 points, its third straight see JOBS page 10

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — John Edwards acknowledged he has “done wrong” and hurt others but strongly denied breaking the law after federal prosecutors charged him Friday with using $925,000 in under-the-table campaign contributions to hide his pregnant mistress during his 2008 run for president. The former U.S. senator and two-time Democratic presidential hopeful was indicted on six felony charges that he violated campaign finance laws in a desperate bid to protect both his White House hopes

and his image as a devoted family man. Edwards, 57, pleaded not guilty and was released without bail on the condition he surrender his passport and not leave the continental U.S. A former trial lawyer who won multimillion-dollar verdicts with the same formidable powers of persuasion that propelled his political career, he now faces the prospect of a lurid trial and the possibility of both prison time and the loss of his license to practice law. “There’s no question that I’ve done

wrong. And I take full responsibility for having done wrong. And I will regret for the rest of my life the pain and the harm that I’ve caused to others,” Edwards said outside the courthouse. “But I did not break the law, and I never, ever thought I was breaking the law.” The charges came after a two-year FBI investigation into the former North Carolina senator’s use of money from two wealthy backers to send his pregnant mistress, Rielle Hunter, into hiding in 2007 see EDWARDS page 6

Dozens of Democrats join in scolding Obama with House vote on Libya WASHINGTON (AP) — The House harshly scolded President Barack Obama on Friday for launching U.S. military forces against Libya without congressional approval, fiercely disputing constitutional powers and flashing bipartisan frustration over a nearly three-month-old conflict with no end in sight. However, lawmakers stopped short of a more draconian resolution to order an

from preceding page challenge to the Democratic president. The resolution will not affect current military operations to aid the rebels who are battling Moammar Gadhafi’s forces. NATO commands the operation, but the United States still plays a significant support role that includes aerial refueling of warplanes and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance work. The hours of debate reflected the anger among House members over Obama’s treatment of Congress, over tea party concerns about constitutional authority and expensive military operations in tough fiscal times and the nation’s growing weariness over war — in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. Obama ordered air strikes in March after a U.N. resolution and limited consultation with Congress. The Constitution says Congress has the power to declare war, and the 1973 War Powers Resolution requires the president to obtain congressional authorization within 60 days of the start of military operations, a deadline that passed last month. “This is a defining moment for the Constitution,” said Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah. “For the president to suggest he got approval from the United Nations is offensive and is wrong. We must stand tall and true to the Constitution.”

Bridgewater woman missing overnight found safe BRIDGEWATER (AP) — New Hampshire Fish and Game officials say a Bridgewater woman missing overnight has been found safe. State police say 56-year-old Catherine Naehbrass, who suffers from a medical condition and has no short-term memory, was last seen at her home late Thursday morning.

Officials searched through the night and Naehbrass was found about 8:30 a.m. Friday about a mile from her home by Conservation Officer James Kneeland. Naehbrass was found in a vacant home. She was taken to a hospital for evaluation of exposurerelated injuries.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Philadelphia woman is suing Dunkin’ Donuts, saying a worker mistakenly put sugar in her coffee, which ultimately caused her to go into diabetic shock. Danielle Jordan’s lawsuit claims she asked for artificial sweetener to be added to her coffee during a June 2009 visit. Jordan claims she downed the drink and experienced dizziness, light-headedness and ended up making an emergency trip to the hospital.

A legal liaison for the Canton, Mass.-based doughnut chain told the Philadelphia Daily News she couldn’t comment on the case. But she says employees only provide customers with the order they ask for. Jordan’s lawyer, Kenneth Rodgers, says his client couldn’t tell from the taste of the coffee that she got sugar instead of her preferred artificial sweetener. He says she didn’t finish the drink before she fell ill. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.

Will Palin run? Who knows? Who cares? The press is agog because the cidevant Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential candidate is in the midst of her bus tour up and down the East Coast. A girl has to keep an eye on her TV ratings. It’s a safe bet that Palin will be playing the “Will She/Won’t She?” game as far as the elastic will stretch without breaking. But actually, the elastic is already broken. It’s a safe to say that Palin will never be the presidential candidate of the Republican Party, however much the Obamians yearn to have her to kick around until November 2012. The Republican Party has been on a suicide mission in the months since the midterm elections handed them the House of Representatives last fall, with the U.S. Senate almost within their grasp. As victorious tea party candidates surged into Washington, D.C., they swore mighty oaths that rather than add a single zero to the debt of the U.S. government, they would fast until death, or make a histrionic lunge in that direction, or make a big stink or a sort of stink. By God, they would draw a line, if only to get pushed off it. The establishment press wrote encouraging editorials about newly elected U.S. Republican Sen. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, hailing this throwback to the economic dark ages as a man of prudent principle, taking on social programs reckoned by well-heeled press magnates as fiscally imprudent. Ryan was duly installed as the new Republican chairman of the House Budget Committee and lost no time in announcing his plan to change Medicare from what it is now — a federal medical insurance plan for America’s seniors — into a privatized affair run by insurance companies, which, given the slightest chance, would pare back services to what these same insurance companies conceive to be fiscal prudence. It took about 30 seconds for America’s seniors to realize that Ryan’s plan represented an overt onslaught on one of the two federal programs left — the other is Social Security — that keep them barely afloat. On May 25, Democrat Kathy Hochul used the Medicare issue to win what had been a safe Republican House seat in the 26th Congressional District in western New York state. Since then, the wind has been whistling out of the Ryan balloon. Republicans who only a month ago were roaring their support for the man have scuttled for cover. As Ryan whimpers at Democratic opportunism and “demagoguery,” his prime defenders are the above-mentioned press magnates and their hired opinion formers at The New York Times and Washington Post solemnly urging the Democrats not to overuse the Medicare bludgeon and to remember that Ryan had at least advanced a plan

that had not shirked Prudence and Responsibility. Prudence and Responsibility don’t carry much weight when seniors with cancer are suddenly faced with the prospect of bills of $2,500 every couple of months for the treatments keeping them alive. Seniors vote. The Democrats will run on defense of Medicare and Social Security all the way to 2012. At the moment, the Republican presidential candidates in the field are scarcely convincing, whether it be the Mormon Romney, who failed in 2008, or the Passionaria of Tea Partydom, the fiery madwoman U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann. My current favorite is a man touted solemnly in the Washington Post as a hot newcomer, Herman Cain, the black founder of Godfather’s Pizza. Here he was, on Fox with Chris Wallace, who suddenly popped Cain a question about the Palestinians’ right of return, freshly rejected by Netanyahu. CAIN: “Right of return? Right of return?” WALLACE: “The Palestinian right of return.” CAIN: “That’s something that should be negotiated.” Quizzed again, Cain seemed foggy about the Israeli position on the matter, as well as his own. CAIN: “Yes, but under — but not under — Palestinian conditions. Yes. They should have a right to come back if that is a decision that Israel wants to make ... I don’t think they have a big problem with people returning.” Of course, this was immediately pounced upon by the commentariat as evidence that Cain is not a serious candidate. But Cain stuck to his guns on an ensuing appearance on Fox: “Chris (Wallace) caught me offguard. I didn’t understand the right of return. That came out of left field, out of all the questions I anticipated him asking me, I didn’t even conceive of him asking me about the right of return. I now know what that is. The thing that you’re going to learn about Herman Cain, if he doesn’t know something, he’s not going to try and fake it or give an answer that he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Now here’s the thing about that right of return that I’ve learned since Sunday. It wasn’t that they were kicked out of Israel by the Jews, no! Their Arab leaders asked them to leave because they thought they were going to annihilate what was left, and then they’re going to go back. So yes, I still stick by my answer.” A man of principle, evidently, but as unlikely as Palin or Bachmann ever to stick a “buck stops here” sign on the Oval Office desk. Scenting opportunity, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani is now making moves consonant with a see next page

LETTERS It’s the rich who invest & create jobs; keep taxing them and. . . To the editor, Congratulations to Mr. Guinta for keeping voters informed about what he is doing in Washington. I look forward to reading his updates in The Laconia Daily Sun every two weeks. I have a few concerns about what is happening in our country. The national debt and of course unemployment are at the top of my list. When you’re standing in an unemployment line it is hard to believe the economy is improving. Obama doesn’t seem to take the national debt seriously. He and FDR would have been best buddies since they both “tax the rich” and spend on programs that cannot succeed. Yes, the poor will always be with us and so will the freeloaders. It doesn’t take

a rocket scientist to figure out that it’s the rich who invest and therefore create jobs. Keep taxing them and they will invest outside our country. The “right to work” law was vetoed by Gov. John Lynch. Too bad he can’t see beyond his nose. Obama has the same problem. They depend on the union employees’ votes to stay in office. Companies are relocating to right to work states. Unions have a stranglehold on education. That’s a whole different topic. . . for later. Keep up the good work Mr. Guinta! I wonder what happened to Kelly Ayotte, Charlie Bass and Jeanne Shaheen. Haven’t heard a word from them since they were elected. T. Gebhard Belmont

People should get investments in their homes back, & then some To the editor, Why in the hell does the media have to scare people and put them in a panic mode? They are telling everyone how bad the housing market is. So people panic and hold off on buying homes. Good banks are lending money to home buyers. People who have worked so hard on their homes are getting screwed big time. It is not fair to the home owner who is trying to sell their home. Some have put over $70,000 into their homes. They should be able to get most of that back and then some. People want to get the homes cheap. Well think of it this way. You want a home that is clean and all you have to do is move in? Or do you want one you

have to fix up? Then, when all is said and done, you have spent the same as the house you said was too much money and all you had to do was move in. That is food for thought and is also true. So in the long run you have a nice clean house that is move-in ready without having to put alot of money into fixing it up. I know that is right. Now if the media would shut the heck up and not scare people then maybe the houses would start selling. So STOP listening to the stupid media and buy a home if you can do so. Now that is good advice. Their is nothing like your own home. Anna DeRose Moultonborough

Thanks for helping make Memorial Day at LMS so memorable To the editor, On Friday morning, May 27, the Laconia Middle School came together with local organizations to celebrate Memorial Day and to remember those who have done so much for our community and our country to ensure peace and freedom for all Americans. The ceremony, on the shores of Lake Opechee, was a special event where the Laconia community joined together with the school to educate and inspire the school children of tomorrow’s future. On behalf of the staff and stu-

dents at Laconia Middle School, we would like to thank Commander Don Doherty and the members of the VFW, Commander Doris Brady, Sgt. Earle Beale and the members of the American Legion as well as the Laconia Police Department for contributing to the success of the celebration. We would also like to thank Whittemore’s Flower Shop for generously donating the beautiful wreath that helped make the day so memorable. Dawn Emond Laconia

Monday screening of ‘In My Country’ is free & open to the public To the editor, The second movie in our International Film Series is “In My Country”, to be shown Monday evening, June 6 at 6:30 p.m. at the Laconia Library. The series strives to understand the meaning and many ways that we struggle to understand how democracy can be lived in a world of tension, cultural differences, and great inequitable disbursement of wealth. “In My Country” is the story of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission hearings in South Africa, in which the perpetrators of murder and torture on both sides during Apartheid are invited to come forward and confront their victims. By telling the unvarnished truth and expressing contrition, they may be granted amnesty. Can such a plan actually bring healing to a country? How does one survive the telling? Would it be possible for other countries and peoples to use such a format for healing as the tensions and pleas for democracy rise to unexpected heights in other places?

What kind of a leader does it take to lead in such a way that forgiveness is possible? This R-rated 2004 English language film stars Samuel Jackson and Juliette Binoche. The showing is free and open to the public with a brief discussion following the movie. The series is sponsored by the Laconia Human Relations Committee, the Laconia Public Library, and the Laconia Historical and Museum Society. We often sit alone to watch a movie, or perhaps in groups where we do not know how others who share the experience feel about what has been seen together. We feel that even brief reactions and dialogue that give thoughtful attention to deep issues of living peaceably together under great stress are important to find. We believe that democracy is built on the experience of community and listening to what others have experienced. I hope that many will join us. Carol Pierce, Chair Laconia Human Relations Committee

1 arrest & 1 citation at Tilton/Northfield/Belmont check point To the editor, Chief Cormier of the Tilton Police Department, Chief Adams of the Northfield Police Department and Chief Baiocchetti of the Belmont Police Department would like to thank all the motorists, for their co-operation, who traveled through the Regional DWI Task Force checkpoint on Memorial Day weekend. During that time, the Task Force stopped 406 vehicles, made

one arrest, and issued one citation. These results we believe are a direct reflection of the impact of our DWI checkpoints and DWI patrols, where there is a decrease in DWIs and related offenses, and an increase in safer traveling in our communities. Thank you for making it a safer holiday weekend. Lt. Ryan Martin Tilton Police Department

from preceding page possible bid. He’s testing the waters in New Hampshire. The problem is that Giuliani’s candidacy in 2008 — much touted by the press — fell apart amid bizarre tactical missteps, endless publicity about his wives and mistresses, charges of corruption and the evident fact, rendered more obvious with each debate, that the guy is a vindictive SOB. As the mayor of New York during the attack on the World Trade towers, Giuliani’s prime card was leadership in crisis, a man who wouldn’t hesitate to send a team of SEALS anywhere, anytime to bring back the head of Osama bin Laden. But that card is no longer his to play. In 2008, Obama was vulnerable to attacks from Giuliani and his Democratic rival, Hill-

ary Clinton, that he was soft on terror. Hard to make that case now. George Bush brought America’s enemies to Guantanamo. Obama just has them murdered in place. This is not to say Obama is a shooin in 2012. It’s not barely worth citing the polls right now. Not too many states that handed the Obama-Biden ticket its victories in 2008 have to drop out of the Democratic column for the Electoral College math to make it a squeaker. These are early days. You bettors, keep your money in your pockets awhile. (Alexander Cockburn is coeditor with Jeffrey St. Clair of the muckraking newsletter CounterPunch.

Presidents wait for disaster areas to be secured before visiting To the editor, In response to Anna DeRose’s letter of May 31, I was surprised to read her version of the White House response to the Joplin, Mo. tornado. The federal government, along with state and local governments Red Cross and state national guard fire and police, are on the scene before, during and long after in any disaster on this size. It has long been a fact that when presidents visit disaster areas they do not visit the scene until the area is stabilized, so that his or any presidents visit will not hamper the work of first responders. It was sad that she feels President Obama has destroyed America. Please think back to the response President Bush gave Katrina — a fly-over peeking out a window in Air Force One

when, after a week of one of the worse response’s ever, he pats his FEMA director on the back saying “GOOD JOB BROWNIE”, who was fired a few days later. In response to the letter written June 2 ,Anna DeRose hit the nail square on the head. I am a retired army sergeant with 20 years of service (58-78) and could not have written it better. Memorial Day is special day to those of us who served, for the families and friends who supported us to remember those who were not able to be with us in life today but in spirit, they will know we think of them often. I thank you for the kind words Anna DeRose, your letter was a reminder to many what Memorial Day means. Henry Osmer Hill

Why does government let people avoid called ID with cell phones? To the editor, It seems to me that anything the government does, or requires, is an ABSOLUTE LIE! The perfect example is so called “caller ID”, which only applies to honest people like you and me, but not at all to government liars, politicians, advertisers, and all the other thieves and cheats out there! They can call you any time of the day to beg for money, persuade you to their false political position, etc, but no way can you eliminate their annoying calls! When I see “unavailable” I KNOW it is a liar, cheat, politician, and won’t answer. If you consider yourself as one of those, get your caller ID to “unavailable” and warn EDWARDS from page 2 and 2008, at the height of his White House campaign. “A centerpiece of Edwards’ candidacy was his public image as a devoted family man,” the indictment said. “Edwards knew that public revelation of the affair and the pregnancy would

us you are dangerous and dishonest. Many people get cell phones to get away from caller ID! How is that possible? The gross, dishonest government regulators DEMAND that us honest phone users have caller ID, then make that great big escape hole by not requiring that of cell phone users!

Federal appeals court rules SWAT team not immune from lawsuit resulting from early morning raid on Bristol apartment in 2008 By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

BOSTON — A family who charged police violated their civil rights by using excessive force while making an arrest and conducting a search of their Bristol apartment won a day in court this week when a federal appellate court upheld in part an earlier ruling that the officers were not entitled to qualified immunity. In 2008, Thomas and Tina Mlodzinski, who are represented by attorney Matt Lahey of Laconia, brought suit against three officers of the Bristol Police Department and four members of the Central New Hampshire Special Operations Unit (SOU), including its commander Robert Cormier, then an officer in Plymouth and now chief in Tilton, in United States District Court in Concord. All the officers moved for summary judgment, arguing that they did not violate the Mlodzinskis’ rights and, even if they did, they were entitled to qualified immunity since their conduct was not clearly unlawful. from preceding page regarding the affair and pregnancy.” In an aggressive and apparently novel application of the law, prosecutors said the money constituted campaign contributions because it was intended to protect Edwards’ political career from ruin. They said the spending was illegal because Edwards should have reported it on his campaign finance filings and because it exceeded the $2,300-per-person limit on contributions. “As this indictment shows, we will not permit candidates for high office to abuse their special ability to access the coffers of their political supporters to circumvent our election laws,” said Assistant Attorney General Lanny

Last July, Judge Joseph LaPlante ruled for the Mlodzinskis by denying the officers qualified immunity. The officers appealed to the United States Court of Appeals, First Circuit, which found that while the Bristol officers are entitled to qualified immunity, the members of the SOU are not. In case stemmed from an incident in August 2, 2006 after Bristol police came to suspect that Michael Rothman, then 17, had beaten a man with nightstick. The victim told police where Rothman lived and that he was known to carry a gun. Sergeant Michael Lewis of the Bristol police obtained warrants to arrest Rothman on a charge of second-degree assault and search for the nightstick. With allegations that Rothman could be armed, Lewis considered executing the warrants posed a high risk and enlisted the help of the SOU. Cormier mustered 15 officers for the operation. After keeping the Mlodzinskis’ second floor apartment under surveillance through the night, shortly before 4 a.m. dawn officers of the Breuer, head of the Justice Department’s criminal division. Edwards’ defense team argued in recent days that the money did not constitute campaign contributions because it was intended to hide the affair from his wife, Elizabeth, not to aid his campaign. She died of cancer last December. Defense attorney Gregory Craig called the case unprecedented and said there was no way anyone, including Edwards, should have known that the payments should have been treated as campaign contributions. “He has broken no law, and we will defend this case vigorously,” Craig said outside the courthouse.

SOU, dressed in camouflage, wearing helmets and armed with assault rifles broke down the door with a battering ram. Rothman stepped from his room into the hallway and lowered himself to the floor as ordered. He was arrested, dressed and taken away. What followed is disputed between the family and the police, but for the purposes of the appeal the court interpreted the facts in the Mlodzinskis’ favor. Jessica, Rothman’s 15 year-old sister wearing only a thong, got of bed on hearing the noise and opened the door to her room to encounter SOU

officers yelling “get down, palms in the air!” She went to the floor, then thinking she was told to rise, started to get up only to be pushed down. She lost her balance and injured her knee when it struck the floor. She was handcuffed behind her back and testified she lay on the floor with a gun at her head for seven to 10 minutes before being taken downstairs. Meanwhile, other SOU officers entered her parents bedroom. One ordered Thomas to the floor where he was handcuffed and held at gunpoint see next page

Marion E. ‘Libby’ Melville, 87 LACONIA — Marion Elizabeth “Libby” Melville, 87, of 25 Union Avenue died on Wednesday, June 1, 2011 at the Lakes Region General Hospital. Libby was born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1923 and was raised in rural Maryland by her beloved great aunt and uncle, Rachel and Francis Key Markland. She married William Melville who died in 1980, and had four daughters. Libby loved infants. Living in Malden, Mass., she cared for unwanted newborns until they were adopted and cried when each one left. In the late 1960’s, to get her girls out of the city, she moved her family into a house on five acres in New Hampshire. She taught her daughters to makedo with wood heat, a dug well and no other house in sight. She worked all her life. In 1972, she and her husband bought the West St. Superette in Concord, N.H. When he died during a break-in in 1980, she ran the store alone for nearly two years. When it sold, she moved to Laconia and worked taking care of the priests at St. Joseph’s. She got her driving license at 50 and loved it. Often she drove to Cape Cod to visit a friend, her parakeet chirping in his cage, buckled in beside her. At 65, she drove alone, round-trip, from New Hampshire to Florida, taking a route through the mountains. Her body aged, but her mind and spirit did not. She loved her grandchildren, Christmas and chocolate. She was the oldest person to ride the Polar Express in 2007. She traveled extensively but loved New Hampshire best. Her spare money went to three causes – disabled vets, elders on the Lakota Sioux Reservation in South Dakota and Smiles, where she paid monthly for one year to repair the cleft lip and palate of one child. She was strong. At 56, she could still paint the

exterior of a two-story house and plant and harvest a ½ acre garden. She said, born earlier, she would have been a pioneer. To the last moment, she was strong, smart and loving. Moments before passing away, she said to an arriving grandson who had driven three hours, “Bless Your Heart”. Then she kissed the hand of another one, as her granddaughters wrapped themselves around her on the bed. She was grateful for the smallest pleasures and believed her entire life had been blessed. Her family is heartbroken. Libby is survived by four daughters, Theresa R. Wax of Plymouth, Mass., Kathleen Brock and her husband, Gary, of Laconia, Patricia N. Sommers and her husband, Warren, of Laconia and Sherry Melville of Belmont; eight grandchildren, Shane, Kiersten, Aaron, Josh, Heather, Eirikur, Zack and Steffie; five great grandchildren, Korey, Vitalia, Isabella, Alison and Gabriel. In addition to parents and her husband, Libby was predeceased by a grandson, Matthew. There will be no calling hours. A private funeral service will be held. Burial will be in the family lot in Blossom Hill Cemetery, Concord, N.H. For those who wish, the family suggests that memorial donations be made to the New Hampshire Humane Society, PO Box 572, Laconia, NH 03247 or to SmileTrain, PO Box 96231, Washington, D.C. 20090-6231.

from preceding page for “a short time” then was taken to the living room. Tina, his wife, lay in bed, half-dressed under the gun of another officer who ordered her to the floor. When she told him she had no top on, he allowed her to remain in bed where she too was handcuffed. A female officer arrived, wrapped her in a sheet and led her to the living room. Jessica and her parents were joined in the living

room by Amy Firmanick, Rothman’s girlfriend, with their baby. Jessica testified that Lewis told the family they would remain under arrest until the nightstick was found, read them their “Miranda” rights and told Furmanick the police would take her child “unless we get some answers.” The Mlodzinskis testified they remained handcuffed for between 45 minutes and an hour while Jessica and Amy were see next page

Principal says students & staff drinking the water at I-LES BY ADAM DRAPCHO

MEREDITH — Inter-Lakes Elementary Principal Steven Kelley said on Friday that despite moderately high levels of arsenic in the school’s well water, students are not being given bottled water or prohibited from drinking the tap water. The statement contradicts press coverage of a recent school board meeting, in which a district administrator was reported in both of the region’s daily newspapers to say that students would be provided with free bottled water to drink until a longterm solution could be found. “The kids are drinking from the fountain, I’ve been drinking from the fountain,” Kelley said. The school, which draws its drinking water from an artesian well, was discovered in a routine test in

February to have levels of arsenic higher than the acceptable level as monitored by the Department of Environmental Services. During the board meeting on May 24, director of buildings and grounds Chris Wald told the board that the DES’s accepted level for arsenic had recently been lowered from 50 parts per billion to 10 parts per billion and the recent test found the elementary’s well water had 13 parts per billion. Reacting to the violation, the school board discussed at the meeting possible solutions to the problem and resolved to a filtration system by the start of the next school year. In the meantime, Kelley said on Friday, the water is safe to drink. “We were not told we couldn’t drink the water.” Reading from a letter drafted by DES and sent home to parents, he said, “it is not necessary to find alternative sources for water.”

from preceding page questioned separately in the kitchen and other officers searched the apartment.. One by one the handcuffs were removed and shortly after 5 a.m. the lst of the officers left. The search uncovered three baggies with small amounts of marijuana, a glass smoking pipe, and a hunting knife under Rothman’s bed, but no nightstick or gun was ever found. Rothman later told police that he hid the nightstick outside the apartment and after the search tossed it in the river. The Mlodzinskis claim that police violated their right “to be secure from unreasonable searches and seizures,” enshrined in the fourth amendment to the United States Constitution by keeping them handcuffed for a prolonged period. Moreover, Jessica and Tina, her mother, contend they were subjected to excessive, contrary to the fourth amendment, and also were victims of assault and battery. The officers countered that they were entitled to qualified immunity. In determining whether qualified immunity applies, the court considers first whether the alleged facts represent a violation of a constitutional right and, second, if so, whether the right was “clearly established” when the alleged violation occurred. In determining whether the right was “clearly established,” the court must decide first if the law itself was sufficiently clear that a reasonable officer could understand he was violating the right and, second, if in light of the facts of the case, a reasonable officers could understand his conduct violated the right. The district court denied the officers’ claims of

qualified immunity altogether. However, the appellate court found that the Bristol police and Cormier were justified in keeping the Mlodzinskis handcuffed while the apartment was searched. The court allowed that since Rothman was removed, his family posed no threat of preventing his arrest. But, the court acknowledged that by handcuffing the family, the officers were able to conduct a thorough, efficient search unimpeded, without risk of hindrance or harm from others. The court also noted that the Mlodzinskis did not complain that the handcuffs were painful. But, the appellate court agreed that the four members of the SOU used excessive force against Jessica and her mother, neither of whom was a suspect and both of whom complied with commands, without justification. “A reasonably competent officer . . . would not have thought it was permissible to point an assault rifle at the head of an innocent, non-threatening, and handcuffed 15-year-old girl for seven to 10 minutes,” the judge wrote, “far beyond the time it tool to secure the premises and arrest and remove the only suspect.” Likewise, her mother Tina claimed that an assault rifle was aimed at her head for up to half an hour, while her son was taken from the apartment, her husband was led to the living room and she was lying half naked in handcuffs in bed. “It quickly became clear,” the judge wrote, “that Tina was not the suspect, that she was not trying to resist arrest or flee, that she was not dangerous, and that she was not trying to dispose of contraband or weapons.” These see next page

factors, he concluded, undercut any claim that the officers acted reasonably. The court further upheld the ruling of the district court that the SOU officers were not protected by qualified immunity against charges of assault and battery under state law. Instead, he found that they failed to show that they did not act in “a wanton and

Red Sox end 4-game skid with 8-6 over Oakland; Crawford drives in winner BOSTON (AP) — Carl Crawford blooped a go-ahead, two-run single to center field in the seventh inning and the Boston Red Sox ended a four-game losing streak with an 8-6 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Friday night. Boston rallied from a 4-0 deficit in the first and were trailing 6-5 when lefty Brian Fuentes came in to face lefty Crawford, who came through with a broken-bat hit just beyond second base. Joey Devine (0-1) loaded the bases in the seventh on a double by Adrian Gonzalez and then he hit Kevin Youkilis and walked David Ortiz. Bobby Jenks (2-2) got the win and Jonathan Papelbon pitched a perfect ninth for his 11th save in 12 opportunities. Jarrod Saltalamacchia added a solo homer, his fifth of the year, for the Red Sox in the eighth. The Red Sox ended their longest losing streak since they began the season 0-6. The A’s dropped their fourth straight after winning four in a row. Before his hit, Crawford was batting just .103 (7 for 68) against lefties this season. And of his 21 RBIs before Friday, only six were at Fenway Park although two came from walkoff hits. The A’s ripped Clay Buchholz for four runs and five hits in the first, but the Red Sox came back to take a 5-4 lead after the third. Oakland tied it with a run in the fourth before taking a 6-5 lead on Daric Barton’s RBI single in the fifth.

David DeJesus started the firstinning rally with a single, took second on a single by Josh Willingham and scored when Hideki Matsui grounded into a fielder’s choice for the second out. Then Buchholz have up three straight hits — a single by Kurt Suzuki that sent Matsui to second, an RBI single by Barton and a two-run single by Mark Ellis. The Red Sox began chipping away at the 4-0 lead with two runs in the bottom of the first. Jacoby Ellsbury led off with a single, took second on his 20th stolen base of the season and third on a wild pitch then scored on Gonzalez’s groundout. Youkilis followed with a double and scored on Ortiz’s single. Ellsbury’s sacrifice fly made it 4-3 in the second and Boston took the lead in the third when Ortiz doubled in one run and Jed Lowrie singled in another off starter Josh Outman. After retiring the next batter, Outman was replaced by Guillermo Moscoso, who pitched 2 1-3 scoreless innings. Oakland tied the score at 5 when Kevin Kouzmanoff singled, took second on a wild pickoff throw by Buchholz and third on a wild pitch before scoring on Coco Crisp’s groundout. Buchholz kept struggling in the fifth. Willingham led off with a double, moved up on a flyout by Matsui and scored on a single by Barton that drove Buchholz from the game.

from preceding page and furniture. Consumer spending accounts for about 70 percent of the economy. But even if gas prices dip, they’ll likely remain high and continue to squeeze consumers and the industries that depend on them. For example, companies that rely heavily on motorists — like hotels and restaurants — cut employment in May. Even economists who think hiring will pick up don’t expect it to grow very fast. Heidi Shierholz, an economist at the liberal Economic Policy Institute, expects employers to add about 150,000 jobs a month for the next few months. Up to 300,000 new jobs a month would be needed to significantly drive down the unemployment rate. Among the deepest job cuts were

those in local governments, which slashed 28,000 last month, the most since November. Nearly 18,000 were in education. Cities and counties have cut jobs for 22 straight months. Since September 2008, 446,000 jobs have vanished. State and local government job losses are likely to persist. Though state tax revenue is recovering, states face rising costs for Medicaid and other services. And localities rely on property tax revenue, which will likely continue to shrink because home prices in most areas are still sinking. “What we need is more government spending to create jobs,” Shierholz said. The 2009 stimulus package is largely spent, she said. Republicans in Congress argue that Washington should instead cut spending and taxes to help generate hiring.

GILFORD from page one last winter that he would retire at the end of this school year. At a meeting of the Budget Committee a motion to reduce the amount of money budgeted for a new superintendent from the 2011 annual budget narrowly failed although some members of the Budget Committee estimated it could save the district between $35,000 and $70,000 to do without a superintendent and have the district run by a business manager. At a well-attended Budget Committee public hearing the next week many, including teachers, parents, and educators, spoke against continuing without a superintendent but the issue was later resurrected in the form of a petitioned warrant article that appeared on the annual SB-2 ballot. During the SB-2 deliberative session, some say protocol was violated when one of the lead petitioners, Budget Committee member Terry Stewart, rose to speak to the petition but was told to sit down by the moderator who allowed the School District’s Attorney Barbara Lohmann to speak before the actual petitioners. “She could have rebutted anything I said but the petitioner of an article speaks to it first,” said Stewart who added that a lot of the momentum went out of the discussion after Lohmann told the meeting the ballot question was “advisory only” but before he got to speak to its merits. Despite the conversation at the deliberative session, the ballot question passed when 492 people of the nearly 700 who voted said they supported going back to the 1998 model that was approved by voters at that time.

In a move worthy of Machiavelli, the day before the 2011 SB-2 vote, the School Board announced it offered a new superintendent’s contract to Kent Hemingway, virtually rendering the vote meaningless and putting the district directly in the bulls eye for a breach of contract suit should the board vote to not hire a superintendent. In response to the vote, School Board Chair Kurt Webber said it was decision of the both the Gilford and the Gilmanton School Boards to continue with a superintendent-style management platform and that it was their choice to make. “We are not going to change our position,” he said at the time. He also said the structure of the School District is determined by a state law which gives the authority to the School Board. Hence the petition. The law cited by those who think the school board is ignoring them by not convening the requested special meeting is RSA 197:2 that states: “A special meeting of a school district shall be held whenever, in the opinion of the school board, there is occasion therefor, or whenever 50 or more voters, or 1/4 of the voters of the district, whichever is less, shall have made written application to the school board therefor, setting forth the subject matter upon which action is desired. No special school district meeting shall be held in conjunction with the biennial election, except when a special school district meeting has been approved by the court and a school district has adopted the official ballot referendum form of meeting pursuant to RSA 40:14.” However, the actual “action” requested by the recent petitioners is not defined. When asked what action he thought the School

District should take in a special meeting, Stewart said yesterday he wants an open and free discussion with the community and the members of the School Board, possibly conducted by a moderator. He went on to say the format of School Board meetings, which are all open to the public, is typically very formal and doesn’t allow for the back and forth discussion about the administrative future of the district he believes the voters chose when they voted twice — in 1998 and again this year — to change the management platform. Doug Lambert, one of the original authors of the study that recommended the business manager concpet change back in 1998, agreed. He said he is fine with the idea that the School Board has included the recent petition on Monday’s agenda but fears the public won’t be given a full opportunity to participate in the discussion. The posted agenda specifies that the time for public comment is before the discussion of new business — which includes the newest petition for a speicial meeting. In addition, the board agenda iterates in bold letters that the public comment period “is intended to give citizens a voice and the (School Board) an opportunity to hear directly from citizens.” “This time is not intended for Q & A,” the agenda continues. “Questions about programs and practices may be directed to respective administrators during the school day.” Neither DeMinico nor Assistant Superintendent Scott Isabelle were available to comment on this story yesterday. The School Board meetings begins at 6 p.m. and will be in the library at the Gilford Elementary School.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, June 4, 2011— Page 13

JACOB from page one pete at such a level? It helps that Marshall, currently a student at Woodland Heights Elementary School, figured out from a very early age what he wanted in life. “He kept telling us that he was a cowboy,” recalled David Marshall, Jacob’s father. The fascination was curious for David and Carrie Ann Marshall. Neither of them had ever been interested in horses. After seeing her son’s insistence, Carrie Ann relented and signed kindergarten-aged Jacob up for a riding lesson. There was no turning back. “He was hooked,” she said. At the time, Jacob recalled, his ambitions were simple. “I wanted to ride fast,” he said, so he began training for and competing in barrel racing, an event where contestants and their horse leave the starting line, sequentially circle three barrels and then return to the same line they started from. He just fell in love with it, right from the bat,” said David. Jacob, described by his parents as naturally competitive, races against opponents who are in the 13 to 18 age range. At an event at Oakridge Farm in Goffstown in May, Jacob came in second in the youth category and fourth overall. Jacob was smitten with the sport of horse racing in specific and horses in general. For his first year of competition, the Marshalls leased a horse for Jacob. Then they decided to look for a horse of Jacob’s own. Despite his young age and relative inexperience, his parents said he possessed an uncanny ability to judge horses, in some cases spotting flaws that his parents missed. Two years ago, when the family came across Robey — part quarterhorse, part Appaloosa, Jacob quickly connected. He credits his success, in part, to his equine racing partner. “I’m used to her and we both love each other,” he said. Their relationship was illustrated at an event held at the Hopkinton Fair last Labor Day Weekend. A misadjusted pair of stirrups caused Jacob to bounce out of his saddle when Robey was at full gallop. Jacob sailed over the horse’s head and landed directly in her path. Robey came to an immediate

stop and stood over the young rider, sheltering him with her neck and head until David came running. Jacob and Robey’s best time so far is about 18 seconds. So far, they’ve racked up enough points for the pair to qualify for one run at the Youth World Championship, which will be held in Jackson, Mississippi. It would be the biggest arena yet for Jacob, but his family isn’t sure yet if they’ll make the long trip for a single run that will last a fraction of a minute. Jacob and his family, which includes 14 year-old older sister and official photographer Chelsea, have made a deal. If Jacob and Robey can earn enough points in coming events for two more runs — a total

of three — they’ll make the trip to Mississippi. Jacob’s ambitions have evolved since he first started riding. He now wants to be world barrel racing champion. His fast times have begun to earn him a few dollars in prize money, funds which he hopes to build until he can afford a big truck with custom graphics and a large show trailer, painted red, white and blue, for his horses. His equine fascination extends beyond the competition arena, too. Jacob’s ultimate goal is to own a ranch where he’ll raise horses. He can’t get enough of the animals. “I just love horses and they all love me,” he said.

GIRL from page 2 but the testimony painted a portrait of a vulnerable child, teenager and young woman who fought to preserve her innocence and spirit and protect the two daughters she had with Garrido. For months, the only person she saw was Garrido, who locked her inside a backyard studio and brought her meals. When she confessed feeling lonely, he gave her a cat, which he took away once it started urinating indoors. He introduced her to his wife, Nancy, and Dugard was moved into another backyard room where the three of them would sleep. After assaulting Dugard, Garrido “would, like, go get food, and we’d sit up and watch TV and movies and stuff,” she recalled. “I had told them my birthday, and so they came in... And they gave me some Barbie stuff because they knew I liked to play with Barbies.” Garrido also gained control over his young hostage by manipulating her confusion. He at first refused to tell her why he had taken her, or even his name. But he eventually persuaded her that “I was helping somebody, even though it was in a really sick, perverted way,” Dugard recalled. “In the beginning, he said that I was helping him and that, you know, he got me so that he wouldn’t have to do this to anybody else. So I was helping him,” Dugard, now 31, said during her September 2010 grand jury appearance. “I guess that’s how I felt, yeah. That’s what he told me.”

The relationship changed after the births of their children, the first when Dugard was 14. The sexual assaults became less frequent and stopped altogether once Dugard became pregnant again a little more than two years later. As the girls grew older, Garrido wanted them to act and go out in public like a real family. Dugard and the daughters were instructed to call Garrido “dad” and his wife, “mom.” He told Dugard, whom he always had called “Snoopy,” to pick an alias. She chose “Allissa.” “We just started like, acting like a family, and we would celebrate their birthdays together. Just trying to be normal, I guess,” she said of the years after her daughters, now 13 and 16, were born. At times, Garrido would offer an apology of sorts, saying “he’s so sorry for what he did; he can’t believe he did it. I would tell him, “’It’s OK. You know, I’m OK. You don’t have to worry.’” The façade was difficult to maintain. Phillip Garrido was prone to mercurial moods and bouts of paranoia, during which he would listen to the walls with electronic ears and say he heard voices he thought were the police. He instructed Dugard and their daughters to avoid his parole agents should they make a surprise home visit, and told Dugard to immediately ask for a lawyer if he were arrested. She assured him she would. “I just didn’t want to make him mad because he would go through these — not physically violent but just really mad,” she recalled.

The N.H. Advantage It is not surprising that the single family home inventory in the Lakes Region has increased as of June 1. It does every year. The level is a tad higher than last June with 1292 homes on the market at an average asking price of $539,520 and a median asking price of $275,000. That compares to 1256 listings last June at an average of $578,520 and a median of $299,000. So the total number available is up and prices are down a little. That seems like it is consistent with the national picture — but hopefully, not quite as bad. The backlog of homes on the market equals almost 21 months worth of inventory. It seems like only a short time ago we had whittled the level down to about 12 months. It is also not surprising that CQ Press, an independent publishing firm, recently announced that N.H. has once again been named the “Most Livable State in the Nation” for 2010. It’s almost like old news now and kind of expected. We’ve been ranked in the top five for six years in a row and that’s pretty amazing and hard to accomplish. It is kind of like Jimmie Johnson winning five straight

NASCAR championships and now going for his sixth. It’s never been done before. I think a lot is us take our lifestyle for granted because it’s just normal for us. CQ Press base these rankings on 44 factors that reflect a state’s quality of life including median household income, crime rate, state business tax climate, employment, education, and even how many days of sunshine there are. Given the fact that the sun hasn’t shown too much in 2011 so far, we are going to have to work extra hard this year in other areas to repeat. New England, in general, faired pretty well with Vermont coming in 8th on the list, Massachusetts 13th, Connecticut 11th, and Maine ranking 20th. Mississippi came in dead last, as it has for nine of the last ten years, and given the flooding these poor folks have had to deal with this year they will likely come in 51st for 2011.

#1 Beatles show in the world comes to Flying Monkey

PLYMOUTH — “1964,” hailed by critics and fans alike as the most authentic and endearing Beatles tribute show in the world, comes to The Flying Monkey Performance Center for one performance only at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 12. Since the early 1980s, “1964” has been thrilling audiences all over the globe with what Rolling Stone Magazine has called the “Best Beatles Tribute on Earth.” “1964” takes audiences on a journey through a quintessential moment in music history that will live forever. Unlike other acts, “1964” concentrates only on the “touring years” of the Beatles, one of the most well documented times of the Beatles’ career. Over 20 years of researching and performing have made “1964” masters of their craft as they recreate an early ‘60’s live Beatles concert with period instruments, clothing, hairstyles, and onstage banter that remains unmatched to this day. The only act of their kind to have performed seven sold-out shows at Carnegie Hall, they recently played at the historic Red Rocks Amphitheatre on the exact 40th anniversary of the Beatles performance there — and actually sold more tickets their heroes. Tickets to the “1964” performance are $42.50 for Gold Circle and $35 for select Orchestra and Balfrom preceding page monly referred to as the N.H. Advantage. Here is just a sampling: — NH is the #1 state for retirement in the country according to based on cost of living, unemployment rate, tax burden, climate, crime rates, and life expectancy. — We are rated the best place in the nation to raise children according to the National Kids Count Survey. — N.H. has the lowest poverty level in the country and the highest median income in the nation according to the U.S. Census Bureau (they must have mistakenly omitted real estate agents). — We have the 2nd best insurance rates in the country. — We have the lowest crime rate in the nation according to the FBI. — N.H. has one of the lowest tax burdens (8-percent of income)in the nation (yes, I know our property tax rates suck). — NH has the third healthiest real estate market in the nation according to Lending Tree. — Lake Winnipesaukee was ranked the #1 retirement place in the country under the category “leisure living for recreational and cultural opportunities” by MacMillanTravel. — Ranked top in New England for the “best state for business” by Forbes Magazine. So as we head into our summer tourism season, keep in mind that you should be kind to all of the visitors in our beautiful state no matter how badly they drive. They are not used to seeing such amazing scenery, gorgeous lakes and mountains, and so many people happy about where they live.

Story Walk sponsored by LRGHealthcare and Franklin HEAL held on Odell Park River Trail

FRANKIN — In an effort to “step up” physical activity in the community, LRGHealthcare, in conjunction with the Greater Franklin HEAL (Healthy Eating Active Living) Coalition recently coordinated a story walk on the Odell Park River Trail. The walk featured a story from children’s author, Diane Muldrow. “We Planted a Tree” was broken up into sections along the trail and families read the story together while walking. At the completion, participants enjoyed healthy snacks and planted seedlings to take home. “This project was an exciting collaboration involving children’s literature while promoting physical activity and good nutrition,” said Franklin Regional Hospital Community Educator Melissa Rizzo. “The Odell park renovations are wonderful.

By Holiday Mathis mighty enjoyable. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When you try to stop doing something, you will do it more because you are still focusing on the “something.” So decide on a new mode of behavior, and focus yourself there. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have social skills and will have the opportunity to use them and teach them to others through your example. You would be amazed if you knew how influential you really are. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You like a challenge that allows you to know your own strength and toughness. The one that comes along today will be both mental and physical. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You work hard to please others, even when no one asks you to do so or bothers to thank you for it. Anyway, the outside world cannot compensate you more than your own moral conscience. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are such a versatile designer that you are not always sure which medium to work in. You will be especially effective in applying your creativity to the area of food, decor and conversation. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 4). Education figures prominently for you this year. Your mind is open, and so you receive more help from people and organizations and also from the ethereal realms. You’ll be an agent of healing for your family this month. Next month brings better money management, and you’ll implement new systems for smoother living. Virgo and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 4, 35, 2 and 7.

Cul de Sac


ARIES (March 21-April 19). The job before you isn’t difficult, but it is all-encompassing. Accomplishing this will take a union of mind, body and spirit. You’ll gather yourself, remind yourself of your purpose and dive in. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your powers of imagination are strong. So close your eyes and conjure up a lazy scene. All you need to do is relax and enjoy yourself. Your best opportunities come along when you’re in a chilled out mood. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Everything comes at a cost, though the currency is not always money. Insist on being more helpful, even when you have someone in your life who is more than willing to do the work for you. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You want to take care of the needs of those around you, and they seem to need you more than usual. You’ll fulfill your role and their requirement. Then it’s time to think about yourself. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You can’t help what you’ve already done. You can only trust that you had your reasons at the time. And the stellar choice you make today is precisely because of the way things happened so long ago. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’re a giver, that’s for sure. Your first response is to think of the needs of other people. But you have needs, too, and you’ll have more to give if you take the time to fill your own well. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Consider taking a reprieve from the process of getting your life together in order to live your life as it is. The former takes so much energy, and the latter will be

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, June 4, 2011— Page 17

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Saturday, June 4, the 155th day of 2011. There are 210 days left in the year. Today’s highlight in history: On June 4, 1940, during World War II, the Allied military evacuation of more than 338,000 troops from Dunkirk, France, ended. On this date: In 1783, the Montgolfier brothers first publicly demonstrated their hot-air balloon, which did not carry any passengers, over Annonay, France. In 1784, opera singer Elizabeth Thible became the first woman to fly aboard a Montgolfier hot-air balloon, over Lyon, France. In 1892, the Sierra Club was incorporated in San Francisco. In 1910, the Ballets Russes premiered its dance adaptation of the Rimsky-Korsakov suite “Scheherazade” in Paris. In 1919, Congress approved the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guaranteeing citizens the right to vote regardless of their gender, and sent it to the states for ratification. In 1939, the German ocean liner St. Louis, carrying more than 900 Jewish refugees from Germany, was turned away from the Florida coast by U.S. officials. In 1942, the Pacific Battle of Midway began during World War II. In 1954, French Premier Joseph Laniel and Vietnamese Premier Buu Loc signed treaties in Paris according “complete independence” to Vietnam. In 1986, Jonathan Jay Pollard, a former Navy intelligence analyst, pleaded guilty in Washington to conspiring to deliver information related to the national defense to a foreign government, specifically Israel. (He is serving a life prison term.) One year ago: On his third personal trek to the Gulf disaster, President Barack Obama said that he saw some progress in fighting the enormous oil spill but that it was “way too early to be optimistic.” Death claimed Jack Harrison, 97, survivor of the Great Escape plot by Allied prisoners in World War II.

Page 18 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, June 4, 2011


Dear Annie: My mother was physically and mentally abused as a child. I know because I have been listening to the horror stories since I was 5 years old. I am now in my 40s and, quite frankly, am running out of compassion for her. First of all, I resent her dumping this on me when I was so young. Second, I know plenty of people who had rotten childhoods, but they eventually made peace with the past and stopped whining about it all the time. I understand venting as a part of the healing process, as I have been in therapy myself. But I don’t get any sense that my mother is trying to heal. We cannot have a conversation without her bringing up some awful incident or begging me to tell her why my grandparents didn’t love her. She tells the same dreary stories over and over almost word for word, and it sounds like self-pity to me. I don’t know why my grandparents didn’t love her. And she abused me, too, in exactly the same ways, but refuses to admit it. Is there any halfway polite way to tell her to grow up and shut up? Or am I just being a witch with a capital B? I once suggested she get therapy, and she nearly screamed the house down proclaiming she’s not “nuts” and doesn’t need “a shrink.” Any suggestions? -- Indiana Dear Indiana: Your mother isn’t “nuts,” but she absolutely needs therapy. She cannot let go of the past, nor has she found a healthy way to deal with it. She is also being abusive to you by bringing this up over and over and expecting you to somehow take away the pain. The next time she starts up, tell her it is too difficult for you to listen to her childhood stories and you will no longer be her emotional punching bag. Then leave. If she needs to vent, she should talk to a professional. Dear Annie: Are people no longer taught common courtesy? I am a neatly dressed senior citizen. Due to an accident, I

have nerve damage to my face. Even though I have had extensive reconstructive surgery, the disfigurement is still visible. I have tried to make the best of what life has handed me and rarely think about it. However, I was walking through an upscale department store, not far from the cosmetics department. Two clerks there began staring and laughing. I was embarrassed and continued walking briskly when one of the Store Bullies yelled mockingly across the store, “May I help you?” even though I was no longer near their section. I was so humiliated that I left the store and have no intention of ever returning. I will happily take my business where I am treated with respect. I find this behavior totally lacking in class, consideration and intelligence. What should I have done? -- Looks Aren’t Everything Dear Looks: You should have taken the names of those rude clerks and reported them to the manager. They are damaging the reputation of the store and should be reprimanded, not only for the way they treated you, but because they will behave this way toward others unless told to stop. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Gone to the Gym,” who complained that there were overweight women in her doctor’s office. I have two doctors who smoke and drink, and nurses who smoke behind office doors. Even the lab tech reeks of cigarettes. It is the old saying of “do as I say and not as I do.” Health is a personal choice for the individual. I choose to be healthy whether or not my physician leads a healthy life. I see skinny people working at McDonald’s, but I don’t jump to the conclusion that fast food makes you skinny. Where you work has no bearing on how healthy you are. -- Realistic in L.A.
