Board agrees to public forum on superintendent issue By Gail OBer
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
GILFORD — The School Board voted last night to allow for what they are calling a School Board Public Hearing on Thursday, June 21 to discuss the position of superintendent. Proponents of managing the
three-school system without the services of a superintendent have been clamoring for such a meeting since the board chose to ignore the results of March ballot referendum that called for adhering to a management model crafted by a special committee prior to the
town breaking away from an SAU affiliation with Laconia and Gilmanton in 1998. Under the 1998 plan, a business manager would be the School District’s CEO and educational leadership would be provided by the building principals. Chair Kurt Webber, read-
ing selected sentences from a written legal opinion, said the School District’s attorneys advised them that the recent petition calling for a special meeting of the School District to discus the issue was inappropriate under state law see GILFORd page 3

SAN FERNANDO, Calif. (AP) — Former New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies star Lenny Dykstra was jailed Monday on grand theft auto and drug possession charges after being accused of using phony information to lease a car from a Southern California dealership. Dykstra, 48, was charged with 25 misdemeanor and felony counts of grand theft auto, attempted grand theft auto, identity theft and other crimes, said Jane Robison, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. He faces up to 12 years in state prison if convicted. Dykstra was taken into custody during a hearing in San Fernando Superior Court on the new charges. He was jailed on $500,000 bail with a bail-review hearing set for Friday. His accountant and a friend were charged in connection with the alleged auto theft but not with drug crimes, Robison said. see DYKSTRA page 7

Weiner admits lying, has been sexting several women NEW YORK (AP) — A tearful Rep. Anthony Weiner on Monday admitted sending a lewd photo of his underwearclad crotch to a young woman over Twitter and then lying repeatedly to protect himself. In a flash of defiance, Weiner refused to resign even as Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi called for a House ethics investigation into whether he broke the rules. The extraordinary confession at a packed Manhattan news conference was a remarkable turn of events for the brash Weiner, who conceded to a “hugely regrettable”
lapse in judgment. House Democratic leaders tersely expressed disappointment and embarrassment, reflecting an erosion of support for the 46-year-old New York congressman and casting doubts on whether Weiner could hold onto his House seat let alone turn a once-promising political career into a 2013 bid for mayor. Weiner insisted he had done nothing wrong and said he would fully cooperate with a House inquiry. “People who draw conclusions about me are free to do so,” Weiner said. “I’ve worked
for the people of my district for 13 years and in politics for 20 years and I hope they see fit to see this in the light that it is.” But in a new twist, the married Weiner also acknowledged that he had engaged in inappropriate contact with six women over the course of three years through social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook and occasionally over the phone. He said he had never met or had a physical relationship with any of the women and was not even sure of their ages. He also said he had never see SEXTING page 10
CONCORD (AP) — House and Senate negotiators reached a tentative agreement on reforms to New Hampshire’s public pension system Monday that will shift more of the costs onto employees. Negotiators settled the last two issues holding up the compromise that lawmakers could vote on Wednesday. One would limit part-time workers to 32 hours a week before they would have to contribute to the pension system. An exception was made for retired police officers hired by communities seasonally for events such as Motor-
cycle Week in Laconia. The provision is intended to prevent double-dipping where retired police officers return to work and collect both a pension and a full-time salary. Negotiators agreed to stick with current law and allow retired workers to return to work if they suspend their pensions. Under the compromise, firefighters, police, and state and municipal workers would pay more into the system starting July 1. Their increased share of the pension costs and other proposed changes are
intended to spare property taxpayers from paying the rising costs of funding the pension system while also relieving the state of a longtime obligation of paying a share of local pension costs. Lawmakers believe that by raising employees’ contribution rates the state can stop paying its share of local public employee pension costs without causing municipal contribution rates to spike. The compromise calls for the New Hampshire Retirement System to recalculate see PENSION page 13

GILFORD from page one because the petition asked for an explanation from the School Board not a specific action. “It does not state any action...” read Webber explaining to the 25 or so people in the room that the whole purpose of a special meeting is to prepare for a vote on a specific action and, in this case, there is no specific action. “On the other hand, we agree there should be further discussion,” Webber said, preparing for the board’s vote to hold the meeting at 7 p.m. either in the High School auditorium or in the Gilford Elementary School cafeteria, should the auditorium be booked. Not all board members agreed initially with Webber’s suggestion to hold a meeting. “A bunch of people signed this,” said Derek Tomlinson. “What was their intention?” He said he would personally hate to call a public hearing only to have a petition submitted for a specific action, triggering a SB-2 deliberative session and ballot question prescribed for an SB2 district. “We’re wasting an inordinate amount of time, to me,” he said. “I disagree,” Webber replied saying he was hopeful the public hearing would satisfy the lingering doubt in the minds of some who insist a previous School Board ignored the will of the voters in 1998 when they adopted a management model that didn’t necessarily call for a superintendent. The management plan, at the time, was approved by the N.H. Department of Education, although, to date, there is no multi-town school district in New Hampshire that operates without a superintendent. The 1998 agreement did not specifically prohibit a superintendent. Rae Mello-Andrews agreed with Tomlinson. “It’s a huge wast of time,” Mello-Andrews said referring to the April School Board meeting where members gave an exhaustive presentation on why the district needed a superintendent-driven management model and how it would not be within the the intent of N.H. RSA 194-C:4 that, according to a March 25 letter to Superintendent Paul DeMinico from Dr. Judith Fillion of the DOE, defines a standard school as “being directed and supervised by a principal and a superintendent, each of whom shall hold valid educational credentials issued by the state board of education.” Webber said he agreed the presentation was thorough, but he also said the format of the presentation didn’t allow for a back-and-forth discussion and he thinks the voters deserve one. Some of the petitioners were at last night’s meeting. Barbara Aichinger said she thought the board’s solution was a good one. “I would assure you it is not a waste of time,” she said. But Kevin Leandro, one of the newer members of the Budget Committee, disagreed. He said he was looking for a legal basis as to why the district couldn’t hold an SB-2 deliberative session and one that said why the district must have a superintendent. He also asked the School District to put the entire RSA-194 on its Website so everyone interested in the entire law could read it. Webber and other members of the board have contended all along that it is the decision of the School Board as to how the district will be administered and that all along the district intended on hiring a superintendent to replace the retiring Paul DeMinico. He said the Gilmanton School Board also supports having a superintendent. That community does not have a high school and sends students to Gilford for grades 9-12.
Resident Tim Sullivan said he wished the board would not use the word “instigate” when referring to the petitioners. “I recognize that there are some of us on the rightwing, Darwinian, lunatic fringe,” he said. “But we are concerned about education. He said his greatest fear was that a “war” would develop between the left and right wings of the town voters and members of the board would get voted out next March because of it. “Tone it down,” he said looking around the room. After the meeting Webber said the decision to hire new Superintendent Kent Hemingway, who was at last night’s meeting, one day before the annual town meeting where the voters chose by a two-to-one margin to adhere to the 1998 management model was not “Machiavellian” (as was stated by this writer on Saturday) because at no time did the School Board ever consider not not hiring a new superintendent. “Machiavellian is a subjective observation and I object to it,” he said.
The term means crafty or duplicitous and Webber said the action of the board to hire Hemingway was neither because it had always been its publiclystated intention to replace DeMinico with another superintendent, regardless of the outcome of the town ballot vote on Article 4 which was, according to the district attorneys, “advisory only.” Webber also declined to release the full legal opinion issued to the district from its lawyers citing attorney-client privilege. In other action the board voted to hire retired Rochester School District principal Robert Pedersen as an interim principal at the Gilford High School for one year. The board also voted unanimously to continue using the football and lacrosse fields at the Meadows, to improve the current practice field, build a field hockey and multi-purpose field and to raze the former Triple Trouble Farm House and use footprint to build bathrooms and a concession stand. All of the above field work is to be paid for with privately donated money.

Hiring strike? Last week, I noted that various forms of the word “unexpected” almost inevitably appeared in news stories about unfavorable economic developments. You can find them again in stories about Friday’s shocking news, that only 54,000 net new jobs were created in the month of May and that unemployment rose to 9.1-percent. But with news that bad, maybe bad economic numbers will no longer be “unexpected.” You can only expect a robust economic recovery for so long before you figure out, as Herbert Hoover eventually did, that it is not around the corner. Exogenous factors explain some part of the current economic stagnation. The earthquake and tsunami in Japan caused a slowdown in manufacturing. Horrendous tornados did not help. Nor did bad weather, though only a few still bitterly cling to the theory that it’s caused by manmade global warming. But poor public policy is surely one reason why the American economy has not rebounded from recession as it has in the past. And political posturing has also played a major role. Barack Obama and the Democratic congressional supermajorities of 2009-10 raised federal spending from 21-percent to 25-percent of gross domestic product. Their stimulus package stopped layoffs of public employees for a while, even as private sector payrolls plummeted. And the Obama Democrats piled further burdens on wouldbe employers in the private sector. Obamacare and the Dodd-Frank financial regulation bill are scheduled to be followed by thousands of regulations that will impose impossible-to-estimate costs on the economy. That seems to have led to a hiring freeze. The Obama Democrats can reasonably claim not to be responsible for the huge number of layoffs that occurred in the months following the financial crisis of fall 2008. And Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke did manage to help stabilize financial markets. But while the number of layoffs is now vastly less than in the first half of 2009, the number of new hires has not increased appreciably. Many more people have been unemployed for longer periods than in previous recessions, and many more have stopped looking for work altogether. It’s hard to avoid the conclusion that the threat of tax increases and increased regulatory burdens have produced something in the nature
of a hiring strike. And then there is the political posturing. On April 13, Barack Obama delivered a ballyhooed speech at George Washington University. The man who conservatives as well as liberal pundits told us was a combination of Edmund Burke and Reinhold Niebuhr was widely expected to present a serious plan to address the budget deficits and entitlement spending. Instead, the man who can call on talented career professionals at the Office of Management and Budget to produce detailed blueprints gave us something in the nature of a few numbers scrawled on a paper napkin. The man depicted as pragmatic and free of ideological cant indulged in cheap political rhetoric, accusing Republicans, including House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, who was in the audience, of pushing old ladies in wheelchairs down the hill and starving autistic children. The signal was clear. Obama had already ignored his own deficit reduction commission in preparing his annual budget, which was later rejected 97-0 in the Senate. Now he was signaling that the time for governing was over and that he was entering campaign mode 19 months before the November 2012 election. People took notice, especially those people who decide whether to hire or not. Goldman Sachs’ Current Activity Indicator stood at 4.2-percent in March. In April — in the middle of which came Obama’s GW speech — it was 1.6-percent. For May, it is 1.0-percent. “That is a major drop in no time at all,” wrote Business Insider’s Joe Weisenthal. After April 13, Obama Democrats went into campaign mode. They staged a poll-driven Senate vote to increase taxes on oil companies. They launched a Mediscare campaign against Ryan’s budget resolution that all but four House Republicans had voted for. That seemed to pay off with a special election victory in the New York 26th congressional district. The message to job creators was clear. Hire at your own risk. Higher taxes, more burdensome regulation and crony capitalism may be here for some time to come. One possible upside is that economic bad news may no longer be “unexpected.” Another is that voters may figure out what is going on.

LETTERS Needs of the motoring public and taxpayers should come ﬁrst To the editor, An open letter to the selectmen of the Town of Gilford: Speed bumps on Governor’s Island; speed limits reduced (Scenic Drive) even though your own studies showed that the majority of cars were being driven at reasonable speeds; stop signs in the middle of through streets (Ridgewood and Bedford Avenues); and now a proposal to eliminate through traffic on the Cat Path. When will these assaults on the motoring public end? I cannot state emphatically enough my view that the proposal to discontinue the Cat Path as a through street and turn it into a dead end road is a horrible idea. The Board of Selectmen set a terrible precedent when they partially blocked access from Belknap Mountain Rd. to Potter Hill Road for the benefit of one family. The result has been that every time someone abutting a road has a gripe about how it is used, they request that the selectmen restrict traffic flow in some manner. Worse yet, the selectmen have been going along. The abutters and the selectmen have lost track of the fact that Gilford’s roadways are not the private property of the few homeowners who live adjacent to a particular section of road, they are public property that has been maintained by
all the taxpayers. The Cat Path proposal is the perfect opportunity for the selectmen to reverse course and serve notice that the needs of the motoring public and the taxpayers who pay for town roads will take priority over the narrow interests of a few abutters. The motorists who use Cat Path to shorten their distance between Routes 11-A and 11-B are entitled to do so. It is their road and their right to use it shouldn’t be thwarted by a few complaining abutters who are but a tiny fraction of Gilford’s taxpayers. Furthermore, if the town has $10,000 to spend blocking off the Cat Path, it would be much better used to fix the unsightly and unsafe railing on the bridge where Alvah Wilson Road crosses Gunstock Brook. I am totally in favor of eliminating unreasonable uses of our roadways: excessive speed, excessive noise, drunkenness, etc. However, the act of merely driving on a town road does not constitute an unreasonable use and should not be impinged upon in any way. For that reason and those stated above, I call upon the Board of Selectmen to vote 3 - 0 to reject this ridiculous proposal to turn the Cat Path into a dead end streetor otherwise impede legitimate use of it by motorists. William P. Roderick Gilford
Thanks to police & parks & rec for their help with Memorial Day To the editor, Before the Middle School Memorial Day Program, while walking to the assembly area, I had a chance to talk with newly selected Chief Adams. I presented my concerns about the traffic and noise that we encounter while doing ceremonies at Veterans Square and asked if the traffic could be diverted down New Salem St. for that period of time. He said to consider it done. It was a much better venue for those who took the time to come out and observe our Memorial Day program. For the first time that I can remember, we could hear and appreciate what the speakers had to say. Thank you again Chief Adams. Hopefully we can continue this for all observances on the square. I would like to publicly thank all who participated in this year’s Memo-
rial Day Parade. It is done for the citizens to honor those who can no longer live among us. They paid for freedom with their lives. It is only fitting that we gather just one day annually to remember and thank them for their sacrifice. While I am in the thanking mode, I also wish to thank Kevin Dunleavy and the Parks & Recreation staff for the fine job they do in preparing for Memorial Day and all other special occasions . The grass was groomed, flower gardens prepared and flags were set at half staff as they should be. Well done Kevin. So you missed a couple trash barrels in a remote park that wasn’t yet open for the season. Big whoop! The park users should have taken care of their own trash anyway!

LETTERS Reckless spending will eventually result in catastrophic crisis To the editor, Perhaps the House of Representatives did get the message from last November‘s election and from polls indicating that Americans are serious about cutting deficit spending. On Tuesday, in a bi-partisan vote (82 Democrats, 236 Republicans) the House overwhelmingly rejected President Obama’s request to unconditionally increase the debt ceiling. Only 97 Democrats voted to continue reckless spending. Despite alarmist claims about not raising the debt ceiling, the Secretary of the Treasury can dispense its approximately $2-trillion revenues on a priority basis. Our country need not default on our debt or fail to pay the military, seniors, the poor, or other critical obligations UNLESS OBAMA’s administration CHOOSES NOT TO MAKE THOSE PAYMENTS. Agreeing on the spending cuts is, of course, the harder step. Some constituency wants every government dollar. Most constituencies have lobbyists with cash and campaign support who solicit support from our legislators every day. Only the people fail to have strong lobbyists in Washington. So, thank goodness for the TEA Parties who represent hard working American taxpayers and speak strongly for fiscal responsibility. The first indication that the House is listening to the people was the passage of the House budget on April 15. This budget made significant spending cuts. The Senate apparently has not heard the people’s cries for fiscal responsibility as five Republicans joined the Democrats to vote against this budget. They didn’t bother to try to fix the budget to make it acceptable, they just voted “No”. The Senate treated the House budget better than President Obama’s budget which was rejected by a vote of 0 for and 97 against. One wonders if the Democrat controlled Senate is interested in fulfilling its requirement to pass an annual budget. The Democrat controlled Congress
did not pass a budget in the previous two years. Lack of a budget has allowed Democrats to avoid the public scrutiny associated with creating, negotiating and passing a budget. The result has been reckless spending and record deficits that jeopardize our nation‘s fiscal health. To avoid a fiscal crisis like Greece and Ireland, our country must stop its reckless deficit spending. Some people say don’t cut spending, raise taxes. That is counter-productive as taxation changes behavior, people will work less, earn less, and taxes won’t reach the expected levels. There are claims that even if you taxed away all this year’s income from billionaires, millionaires, and all people earning over $100,000 you would still not have raised enough money to eliminate this year’s deficit. If this is even close to being true, and I am sure it is, then raising taxes isn’t the answer. (Of course a 100-percent tax rate would cause the next year’s tax revenue to plummet.) Our country’s real problem is that it spends too much money. Hopefully the Senate and the president will join the House of Representatives and seriously cut spending. The alternative, continued reckless spending, will eventually result in a financial crisis that will make the 2008 crisis look like a hiccup. When that happens, almost every American will be seriously hurt, including workers, seniors, homemakers, children, people on welfare, and future generations. All Americans certainly want to avoid the hurt that will come to themselves, their families and other people from another and worse financial crisis. Tell the Senate and President Obama to work with the House to significantly cut spending. Tell them that we are all ready to equitably share the sacrifice needed to put our country onto a financially responsible path. Tell them to act quickly, as the problem gets harder to solve every day! Don Ewing Meredith
The madness will continue in ‘12; hundreds more wacky bills To the editor, My fellow citizens, the 2012 list of Legislative Service Requests (LSRs) is growing rapidly. An LSR is an idea for a new law or change to an existing one. With Wednesday being the last day to file LSRs I imagine there will be in excess of 600 new proposed bills for the next year and maybe more. As of today there are 305. Many being repeats of rubbish that got killed in the past, some appearing to be from the new free state gang and a couple that appear to be of slight need. I will share a few of these proposed bills that the House members have conjured up for your interest. No criminal check to purchase a gun, no more speeding tickets (unless there is a victim) and no more sobriety check points. So the gun wielding drunk criminal can speed away from the police. If they happen to cause an accident, which would be cause to bust them, there is also a proposed LSR to require prisons to offer vegetarian diets to inmates for those who choose.
Well they do have rights. Speaking of guns, another bill would make a hunting pistol the state symbol for NH. At least they are staying with the same theme. We will eliminate the Department of Education and also remove the 180 day required school year. While doing that we will also require education personnel to include in their contracts a moral turpitude clause. As the legislature attempts to remove bullying laws from schools one representative is trying to establish a no bullying in the Statehouse or Legislative Office Building law. I guess that is important given the antics going on down there. I wonder if carrying a gun in the Statehouse is bullying? For all of you attorney lawmakers, a local legislator is trying to prohibit an attorney or their spouse from holding elective office in the legislature or executive branch. Talk about cleaning house! That same legislator wants to repeal see next page

LETTERS Our reps should’ve taken more effective steps against Northern Pass To the editor, When HB-648, the eminent domain legislation many Northern Pass opponents had tied their hopes to, failed to pass the N.H. Senate on Thursday (6/2), no one should have been surprised. HB-648 represents a sweeping policy change that would affect many more projects that just Hydro-Quebec’s Northern Pass. While it sailed through the N.H. House, one need only took at the political persuasion of the leadership in that body to understand that vote. The problem is that opponents of Northern Pass now have nowhere to go, legislatively speaking. Unfortunately, other legislative options were available but will now have to wait until the second year of this legislative session to be heard. For example, a simple “Sense of the Senate” resolution could have put senators on record — along with members of our Congressional delegation and Executive Council — as opposing
the project. Legislation could have been drafted to enhance the authority of the Site Evaluation Committee or even to prohibit approval of the project by the Public Utilities Commission — steps that would have, at the very least, slowed down the forward motion of Northern Pass. Even funding decisions for these entities could have reflected the public’s concern over this project’s impact on their lives and livelihood. It is now time for Northern Pass opponents to develop other strategies; ones that rely more on public outcry than the legislative process. Knowing how many people have showed up at the numerous public hearings opposed to Northern Pass, it is extremely disappointing that our elected officials did not take more effective steps to make sure those voices were heard and meaningful action taken.

To the editor, Thou dost protest too much. Seems like Ms. Rudmin Chong got her knickers in a knot over my response to her continuing advocacy for abortion. Yes, advocacy. She has written many letters to this paper, and others, on the subject. It was one of the reasons she gave for petitioning citizens to vote for Obama, as she knew he was of like mind (if you recall he said he wouldn’t want his daughter’s life “ruined” by a pregnancy, and as a state senator he wanted children from preceding page the Board of Education. Do we really need it? Now, if you are a state employee — no I am not going to mention RTW — certain state employees will be prohibited from wearing fragrances. Thank goodness!
who survived the abortion process to be simply set aside and left to die). So yes, Ms. Rudmin Chong, I do fear for the lives of the unborn. I also fear for those who treat those lives as disposable as a Kleenex or a condom. The facts are that there is a demographic destruction taking place around the globe, due mainly to abortion. While you loudly voice your protest over my words, that unborn child silently screams for his or her right to life. Bob Meade Laconia I could go on but that is enough madness for now. One more thing, yes there will be yet another attempt at repealing marriage equality, as you can see it has already ruined our state. Jobs, jobs and jobs. Carla Horne Meredith

Belknap Commission pitches refocus of corrections & Meredith’s Worsman says that’s fine as long as taxes stay flat By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
MEREDITH — Saving money was the theme when the third annual round of “county conversations” began here last evening with the Belknap County Commissioners — Ed Philpot, Steve Nedeau and John Thomas — reporting to the Board of Selectmen on their annual progress and future plans. Philpot, who chairs the commission, opened by stressing the commission’s interest in developing a community corrections system akin to that operating in Strafford County, which instead of just incarcerating seeks to rehabilitate those offenders beset by drug and alcohol abuse. He noted that drug and alcohol abuse accounts for about eight of every 10 inmates in the county correctional facility and the rate of recidivism is extremely high. Warehousing these repeat offenders behind a revolving door, he said, was not in the best interest of either the county or the individuals. In Strafford County, drug and alcohol cases are adjudicated by a drug court, where the aim is to ensure that offenders pursue a rehabilitation program without becoming wards of the county and forfeiting their employment. “It’s all carrot and stick,” Nedeau said. Philpot reminded the selectmen that renovation of the county jail, which is in poor condition and poses risks of liability, is a high priority on
the commission’s schedule of capital improvements. However, before embarking on construction, the commission intends to develop programs like those in Strafford County, which by reducing the rate of incarceration will determine the capacity required of the correctional facility and with it the cost of the project. Philpot explained that the commission has engaged a consultant, David Bennett of Park City, Utah, to assist with the preparation of a master plan for the county corrections department. Bennett has worked with more than 250 correctional systems, including those in Strafford and Cheshire counties in New Hampshire. He said that Bennett has advised the commission to build for the forecast capacity in 50 years and integrate the development of programs with the design of the facility. Colette Worsman, who chairs the board, suggested that planning for the corrections department should be “dovetailed” with the new circuit court system. “The goal,” she said, “is to save us money.” While acknowledging that the commissioners were eying a number of capital projects, she reminded them that the town had not increased its property tax bite and asked the county to do the same. When county administrator Debra Shackett pointed out that the commission had reduced the county tax burden, Worsman said she hoped they would do so again.
Forsythe tells council that increased employee contributions may offset state pullout from retirement system By Michael Kitch
LACONIA — At a meeting with state representatives last night, the City Council confirmed that the elimination of the state’s share of the employer contribution to the pensions of firefighters and police officers will compel the council to trim another $406,000 from the 2012 city budget. Representatives Frank Tiilton, Don Flanders and Bob Luther of Laconia were joined by Representative Alida Millham of Gilford. Senator Jim Forsythe (R-Strafford), who was reached by telephone, told the councilors that House and Senate members were discussing legislation — Senate Bill 3 — to reform the New Hampshire Retirement System in a committee of conference. He said that had been an effort to ensure that increases in the contributions by employees would equal or exceed the
state share, sparing municipalities the additional cost. However, he conceded that there is “no guarantee.” Tilton assured the councilors that $7.25-million to renovate the Huot Technical Center and funding for the science building at Lakes Region Community College was included in the both the House and Senate versions of the state capital budget. Likewise, he said that funding to repair and perhaps reconfigure the Main Street Bridge was secure and the project would be designed in the fall, bid in the winter and begun in the spring. Councilor Brenda Baer (Ward 4) asked if lawmakers were considering means of increasing revenues. Only Millham responded directly. Remarking that “this may be rock bottom,” she added that if revenues failed to match projections, “there has to be some serious conversation about revenue sources.”

MEREDITH — Family and friends of the late Carl and Jeannette Johnson gathered at their waterfront home Sunday afternoon to honor the couple’s many contributions to safeguarding the quality of the state’s waters and the future of its common loons by designating the stretch of Lake Winnipesaukee where they lived Johnson Bay. Carl Johnson, Jr. recalled that his parents purchased the cottage on Dale Road as a summer home in 1957, when they lived in Melrose, Massachusetts, and made it their only home 16 years later. Johnson Bay, he said, reaches from Ledge Island, near the mouth of Fish Cove, southward where it is bounded by Lone Pine Point at the tip of Meredith Neck to the east and the southern end of Stonedam Island to the west. Appropriately enough, a navigation light at Lone Pine Point is known among locals as “Johnson’s light” and the Johnsons played a major role in forestalling the development of Stonedam Island. A plaque, mounted on the Johnsons’ shoreline, bearing a photograph of a pair of loons by John Rockwood is inscribed “Johnson Bay on Lake Winni-

pesaukee, designated by the New Hampshire State Legislature in memory of Carl and Jeannette Johnson for their tireless efforts to preserve New Hampshire ‘s lakes and common loons.” During Johnson’s two terms in the New Hampshire House of Representatives and five in the Senate, where he chaired the Environment Committee, he was among the foremost champions of the lakes and their loons. He was a longtime member of both the New Hampshire Lakes Association and Loon Preservation Committee. He sponsored several bills to protect the natural shoreland environment, including the Comprehensive Shoreland Protection Act, and his legislation banning lead fishing tackle was the first of its kind in the nation. Throughout, Jeannette, his wife of 67 years, was at his side, and the two were honored as they are remembered — together. The Johnsons passed away within a week of one another last September and, after the elections in November, Senator Jack Barnes, Johnson’s closest friend in the Senate, asked Jeanie Forrester, the newly elected Republican senator from Meredith, to sponsor the bill designating Johnson Bay. “Jack mentored me through the process,” Forrester said. see next page from preceding page April 14 found cocaine, Ecstasy and the synthetic human growth hormone Somatropin at his San Fernando Valley home, the statement said. Robison said Dykstra had not obtained a lawyer to represent him in the case. “Of course I’m not guilty,” Dykstra told the Daily News of New York on Monday. “The car got stolen alright — stolen by them. I don’t have it anymore. It’s gone like my computer, my phone, my clothes.” That may be a reference to Dykstra’s financial woes. Dykstra, who bought a Ventura County mansion once owned by hockey star Wayne Gretzky, filed for bankruptcy two years ago, claiming he owed more than $31 million and had only $50,000 in assets. In May, he was charged with more than a dozen federal counts, including bankruptcy fraud. Federal prosecutors contend that he hid, sold or destroyed more than $400,000 worth of items from the $18.5 million mansion without permission of a bankruptcy trustee. Dykstra spent 12 years in the big leagues and helped the Mets to the World Series championship in 1986. He was a three-time All-Star in the 1990s while with the Phillies.

the changes is to move the parking for the 13 town employees to areas which will not conflict with business parking, opening up additional spaces for businesses. Susan Woodbury, who has run the Village Image Salon at the corner of Main Street and Rte. 140 for 11 years and has six employees who park in the downtown area was critical of the process by which the changes were proposed. “We run a business down here and bring people in to the downtown area from all over. But I didn’t find out about the changes until I read about them in the newspaper. Why couldn’t the chief have come to me and talked about them? It’s just common courtesy’’ she said. She was also critical of the fact that copies of the proposed ordinance hadn’t been made available to the public at the meeting, saying that it made it difficult for them to understand the proposed changes, leading town officials to have copies of them made and distributed. When she was critical of what she said was an increase in parking for town employees at the expense of businesses, Selectman David Morse defended the changes as being “as business friendly as possible.’’ Before the vote Pike said that the plan makes a lot more spaces available and isn’t cast in stone. “If it doesn’t work, we’ll modify it,’’ he said. Later in the meeting, nearly an hour after the vote was cast, Woodbury said that after she had read the ordinance she would like some clarification on the fine structure and enforcement. A brief discussion took place but Chairman Pike cut it short by saying that the ordinance had already passed and any further discussion would have to take place at a subsequent meeting. Selectmen also adopted an ordinance governing see next page
from preceding page Senate Bill 85 carried the Senate unanimously, the House with only one dissenting vote and was signed by Governor John Lynch. In a letter Forrester read, the governor praised the Johnsons for their efforts on behalf of the state and its environment, noting that they “never wavered in their loyalty to the state of New Hampshire.” Harry Vogel, executive director of the Loon Pres-
ervation Committee, described the Johnsons as “outstanding volunteers,” whose picture in the foyer of the Loon Center in Moultonborough is the first thing he sees when he comes to work and the last thing he sees when he leaves for home. While Vogel spoke, his listeners began shifting their gaze to the sunlit water of Johnson Bay, where, as if on cue, four loons appeared.

BELMONT from page one hearing preceding the unanimous vote by selectmen to adopt the ordinance. Pike said that one thing which had moved him in the direction of having the town look at parking problems in the village area was the sight of an unregistered vehicle with a “for sale’’ sign on it sitting in the same place on Main Street for a couple of months. “We’re building a park just down the street. We’re putting in flower boxes to make it as nice as we can. I think we he have to make it more friendly for businesses so people will want to come here,’’ said Pike, noting that a Memorial Day ceremony and a vintage car show held last Saturday had brought a large number of people to the Main Street area. Pete LaPointe, who runs a barber shop on Main Street said that he has been having a problem with people parking in front of his business for five hours or more and welcomed the change. “People think because there’s a car parked there that I’m busy, so they don’t come in. It’s costing me business,’’ said LaPointe. The changes establish seven one-hour parking spaces, one of them designated for handicapped parking in front of the town hall on Main Street. They also designate seven spaces in the Main Street municipal parking lot next to the town library onehour spaces, leaving the other nine unrestricted. And four spaces on Fuller Street across from town hall will also be designated as one-hour parking from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. The 10 spaces in the Nelson Court municipal parking lot will be designated for town employees or town use parking 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Friday while the Fuller Street lot will have six designated for town employee or town use parking from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Friday.

ASSAULT from page one initially ordered to appear in Belknap County Superior Court on March 17 to face a probation violation stemming from the alleged Alton assault but failed to show up in court. Cost said Dibiaso has a previous conviction for being a felon in possession of a deadly weapon and was still on probation. He was arrested at a residence in Florence, Ala. in early April on an outstanding warrant for failing to pay restitution on a domestic violence case in Lauderdale County in Alabama according to a news article in the Times Daily of Florence, Ala. Cost said the U.S. Marshals’ Gulf Cost Task Joint Fugitive Task Force picked him and Dibiaso allegedly fought extradition back to New Hampshire but was finally returned to the custody of the Belknap County Sheriff’s Department this past weekend. According to affidavits filed yesterday in Laconia District Court, Dibiaso was in a four-year relationship with Lucy Carrillo, a prosecutor with the N.H. Attorney General’s Office when he allegedly assaulted her during one
of his frequent stays in her Alton home. Cost said yesterday Dibiaso was arraigned on two counts of second degree assault for allegedly pushing his victim down on her bed and choking her until she lost consciousness on the evening of Jan. 27. When she awoke he allegedly stood on the bed and kicked her repeatedly in the face. Police said the alleged victim called police and Alton Police responded to what ended up being a 9-1-1 hangup call. Cost said because the victim works for the N.H. Attorney General’s Office and because two of his four newest charges in Belknap County are for obstructing the reporting of a crime and obstructing a government agency — the Alton Police Department — the Sheriff’s Department was asked by the Attorney Generals’ Office to perform the entire investigation. Judge Jim Carroll ordered Dibiaso held on $50,000 cash only bail. Cost said Dibiaso is scheduled to appear in Concord District Court this morning and faces three felony charges of attempted improper influence or extortion.
Gilford woman charged with hosting underage drinking party GILFORD — Responding to a tip, town police broke up an underage drinking party on Annis Drive Friday night. Marcy Ann Pogoda-Marceau, 44, of 71 Annis Drive #16 was charged with facilitating an underaged drug or alcohol party. Charged with unlawful possession of alcohol was Miranda Currier, 19, of 182 Hoadley Road in Belmont,
Rebecca Pawlowski, 19, of 38 Beaman St. in Laconia, and Gracia Woodman, 18, of 112 Route 25 in Meredith. In addition, at least five more children aged 17 or under were charged with unlawful possession of alcohol. Gilford Police said more details of the party and the arrests will be made available this morning

The news conference, unusually blunt even by New York standards, went on nearly half an hour and capped a week of double-entendre, tabloid-headlines and late-night jokesters’ snide comments. With eyes welling and voice breaking, Weiner fielded questions from dozens of shouting reporters as the cameras clicked.
Weiner said over and over that he had made “terrible mistakes” and done “a very dumb thing” for which he alone bore responsibility, and he apologized repeatedly to his wife, Huma Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. “My wife is a remarkable woman. She’s not responsible for any of this,” he said. “I apologize to her very deeply.” see next page

would replace the present chlorine disinfection treatment system with one using ultraviolet light. “I’m no engineer but anytime you don’t have to add chlorine to the water it seems to me that it’s good for the environment,’’ said Selectman Ronald Cormier, who moved to support the project, which carries a $498,000 price tag over an eightyear period for Belmont.

from preceding page Abedin did not attend his news conference, but Weiner said they would not be separating over the scandal. Among the women Weiner contacted, Meagan Broussard, told ABC News that Weiner “friended” her on Facebook after she commented on one of his speeches posted online on April 20. They exchanged more than 100 messages, and Weiner constantly tried to steer the conversation toward sex. “I don’t think he’s a bad guy. I think he’s got issues just like everybody else,” Broussard, 26, said in an interview aired Monday night. During Weiner’s news conference, the lawmaker confirmed that Broussard was one of the women with which he had exchanged messages. The scandal began more than a week ago when a conservative website reported that a photo of a man’s crotch had been sent from Weiner’s Twitter account to a college student in Seattle. For days, Weiner claimed that he hadn’t sent the photo and that he was the victim of a hacker. But he caused guf-
faws when he said that he couldn’t say with “certitude” that the underwear shot was not a picture of him. The scandal escalated Monday when the website, BigGovernment.com, run by conservative activist Andrew Breitbart, posted photos purportedly from a second woman who said she received shirtless shots of the congressman. The site said the pictures were in a cache of intimate online photographs, chats and email exchanges the woman claimed to have. The website did not identify the woman. One photo showed Weiner on a couch with two cats nearby. The website said Weiner sent the photo using the anthonyweiner(at)aol.com account with the subject line “Me and the pussys.”

Muskrats’ season opener set for Friday night BY ADAM DRAPCHO THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — A year ago, the city welcomed the Laconia Muskrats as the newest franchise in the New England Collegiate Baseball League. The team responded with a season that was good enough to earn them a spot in post-season play the loyalty of a base of local fans. This year, the team’s general manager said, the Muskrats aim to make progress on both those fronts. “We want to see attendance increase and we want to win an NCLB championship,” said General Manager Noah Crane. He made his comments on Monday evening, when the team hosted a “Meet the Muskrats” event at their home turf, Robbie Mills Field. Crane said the team has a third goal. “We want the entire Lakes Region to take ownership of this club.” The team has made attempts to increase visibility outside of Laconia and has sought sponsors and advertising partners from around central parts of the state. The Muskrats also hope to team with local parks and recreation departments to offer day clinics in Lakes Region towns. Crane said he’d like to get local families the chance to interact with the DIRTY AIR DUCTS ARE A HEALTH HAZZARD
players, all college-age amatuers who are still playing at the university level. “They’re our best advocates,” he said. Some of those players might already be familiar. Garrett Jewell, a pitcher from Alexandria, will return to the team this year. He’ll be joined on the pitching staff by Mike White from Lisbon and Jake Woodward from Lebanon. “It’s certainly a benefit to us if we can get some New Hampshire guys,” said Crane. The Muskrats’ 27-mad roster is made up of promising college players from around the country. The two month-long regular season, packed with games nearly every day, begins at 7:05 on Friday night with a home opener against the Old Orchard Beach Raging Tide. Tickets to Muskrats games cost $5 for adults, $3 for students and seniors and are free for children and military personnel. The team prides itself on providing family-friendly, entertaining evenings of baseball.

Bruins rally after Nathan Horton carried off ice to bury Vancouver in 8-1 avalanche BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Bruins gingerly tapped their sticks on the ice while medical personnel wheeled Nathan Horton out of the hushed arena through the Zamboni tunnel, his neck fixed in a brace. Horton’s teammates needed a few minutes to clear their minds after such a frightening injury in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals. But when the Bruins finally got their heads together, they created an offensive avalanche that got them right back in this series. Andrew Ference and David Krejci each had a goal and an assist during Boston’s four-goal second period, Tim Thomas made 40 saves, and the Bruins beat the Canucks 8-1 on Monday night, trimming Vancouver’s series lead to 2-1. “It’s always tough when a guy goes down,” said forward Brad Marchand, who scored a short-handed goal in the second period. “We really wanted to get this win tonight for him. It’s a very tough situation, and everyone is worried about him, but it definitely gave us motivation to win.” Game 4 is Wednesday in Boston. Boston emerged from a three-game offensive slump after Horton was taken off the ice on a stretcher 5 minutes into the game, rendered senseless by a late hit to the head from Vancouver defenseman Aaron Rome. Mark Recchi scored two goals for the Bruins, who turned a big win into a blowout with four more goals in the final 8½ minutes of the third period against beleaguered goalie Roberto Luongo, who won the first two games of the series in Vancouver. The Bruins were one goal shy of equaling the finals record of nine goals, set by Detroit in Game 2 of the 1936 series and matched by Toronto six years later in Game 5. The eight goals were the most scored in the finals since Colorado topped Florida 8-1 on June 6, 1996, in Game 2, according to STATS LLC. Boston had managed just three goals in its previous 10 periods before torching Luongo, who stopped
30 shots. Boston hadn’t even scored six goals in a finals game since May 5, 1970, in Game 2 against St. Louis on the way to their last championship. Daniel Paille scored a short-handed goal in the third, and Recchi, Chris Kelly and Michael Ryder — who finished with three points — scored in the final 2½ minutes as the Bruins emphatically avoided a daunting 0-3 series deficit. Jannik Hansen broke up Thomas’ shutout bid with 6:07 to play for the Canucks, who finally hit a major bump in their late-season roll toward their first Stanley Cup title. “In the playoffs, a loss is a loss, if you lose in OT or you lose like we did tonight,” Vancouver coach Alain Vigneault said. NHL scoring champion Daniel Sedin got a 10-minute misconduct late in the jarring loss for the Presidents’ Trophy winners, who had won seven of eight games. The Canucks had given up just six total goals in their previous four games while closing out the Western Conference finals and taking a two-game lead over Boston. The palpable excitement of Boston’s first home finals game in 21 years turned into unease just 5 minutes into Game 3. After Horton passed the puck to Milan Lucic at the Vancouver blue line, Rome left his feet to deliver a hard shoulder check to Horton’s upper chest and head. Horton appeared to be unconscious after he landed flat on his back, his arm spookily reaching up into empty space. “I think what I recall is it was a blindside hit that we’ve talked about taking out of the game,” Bruins coach Claude Julien said. “That’s my view on it. Let the league take care of it. We’re trying to clean that part of the game out.” Medical personnel spent several minutes attending to Horton, who scored the Bruins’ winning Game 7 goals in the first round against Montreal and again in the Eastern Conference finals against Tampa Bay.
PENSION from page two employer rates to be sure that happens. The state had been paying 35 percent of local pension costs, a longstanding practice meant to encourage municipalities to participate in the system. The state reduced its share to 25 percent in the current budget. The budget for the upcoming two years passed by the Senate last week eliminates the state’s share. At the 35 percent rate, the state’s share would be about $87 million in each of the next two years. In its purpose statement, the compromise says that increasing employer contributions would harm the state’s economy by raising property taxes to pay the municipal share. It says that would discourage business from expanding or relocating to New Hampshire. The compromise notes that legislation was enacted in 2007 to deal with the system’s unfunded liability — $2.7 billion at the time — but changes since make the reforms in the bill necessary. The system’s current unfunded pension liability is $3.7 billion plus an estimated unfunded medical insurance liability of nearly $1 billion. “Over time, this is going to stabilize the system and keep employer rates from skyrocketing,” Senate Republican Leader Jeb Bradley, the prime sponsor of the legislation and chair of the negotiating committee, said of the agreement. Bradley said it is becoming increasingly difficult for government to afford pension costs, especially when combined with health care costs. The compromise defines an employee with vested benefits as one with 10 years in the system. Some employee groups argue an employee with less than 10 years should have the same protections. Concern over losing benefits has led to hundreds of employees filing for retirement this year. The compromise attempts to allay some of their fears by giving employees until Jan. 1 to become vested and escape many of the changes that would affect new
hires and workers with less time on the job. Vested workers would pay higher pension contributions beginning July 1, but most changes would only apply to those hired after that date. Starting July 1, teachers, state and municipal workers would pay 7 percent instead of 5 percent. Firefighters’ contribution would rise from 9.3 percent to 11.8 percent. Police would pay 11.55 percent instead of 9.3 percent. Many of the proposed changes would only affect workers hired after July 1. They would work longer besides paying higher contribution rates and not be able to boost their pensions like current workers. For example, newly hired state workers, municipal workers and teachers could not collect retirement benefits until age 65 even if they retired earlier. Vested workers could continue to retire before age 65 and get a reduced pension. Newly hired police and firefighters could not begin collecting a pension until age 52½ even though they could retire at age 50. Currently, they can retire at age 45, and that would not change for vested workers. Newly hired workers and workers who don’t have 10 years in the system on Jan. 1 would see earnings used in pension calculations averaged over their five highest paid years instead of three years, which is the current practice. Negotiators limited spikes in pension benefits paid to police who are paid for extra special duty assignments. The compromise would limit those earnings for police vested on Jan. 1 to the average paid over the previous seven years. New hires could not count any special duty pay in their pension calculations. Non-vested and new hires could not include buyout or severance payments. The two sides agreed to drop provisions limiting collective bargaining and instead plan to study the issue. The public pension system covers more than 50,000 active and nearly 26,000 retired state and municipal workers, teachers, police and firefighters.

Opening reception for ‘Experiments in Restraint: Books Variously Bound’ at The Studio June 9
LACONIA — An opening reception will be held for artist Samuel Feinstein, creator of “Experiments in Restraint: Books Variously Bound” at The Studio from 5 — 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 9. Leather and snaking, tightly wrapped cords, draftsmanship and craft that’s measured in millimeters — all are part of the exhibit showing through the end of June. Feinstein has created a breathtaking display of both fine and altered book bindings and original hand-done calligraphic pages that are beautiful, provocative, and unlike any recent exhibit in the Lakes Region. The artist’s devotion to both his craft as binder and the book as object is patently obvious. When required, his traditional bindings perfectly complement the book and its age and subject matter. “I listen to the book to see what structure and style of binding it calls for,” said Feinstein in his artist’s statement. His playful side is evident in his altered bindings, which create art-objects out of existing books such as an edition of Samuel Johnson’s writings sewn shut with a knife embedded through the book. Many of the books are for sale, and collectors would be wise to see what is offered. Melissa McCarthy of The Studio is also thrilled that Feinstein has given her several of his “early binding” efforts to offer in the Studio Shop. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for someone to purchase one of his beautifully bound journals or sketchbooks as a gift for a graduate, a bridal memory book or a personal journal.” All are welcome to attend the opening reception for the artist. Call 455-8008 for more information.

Pooch Café LOLA
By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You may not want to show people your work because you feel that it’s unfinished. But a project that is completely finished is lifeless. So show where you are in the process, and you’ll be enthralling. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You feel the urgency and responsibility to act however you can right now. This is, after all, the only moment that is truly yours to use or waste, as you wish. As for the next hour and tomorrow, they can’t be touched. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Now that the newness and strangeness has worn off, you see your situation clearly. Because you’re so relaxed, you are more keenly aware of your own purpose and the intentions of others. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If you don’t want to fall “out of the loop,” you have to close the loop. Make sure the people around you are accountable to you, and you to them. Even if you think the exchange is finished, follow up. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You have an inquiring mind, and your curiosity will be flattering to others, as long as you know which questions to ask. Note that a question can be deep without being too invasive. Stay conscientious. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 7). The way it worked in the past is not the way it will work in the future. You are bright, adaptable and ready to adjust in whatever way necessary to be successful. This month, your public persona blossoms. July features freedom from something that’s been a pressure for years. September and November bring adventure. Aries and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 13, 47, 8, 27 and 24.
by Richard Thompson
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Instead of imagining or assuming what others see when they look at you, know for sure. Take a picture or videotape yourself. The results will help you project the image you want to project. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your concentration may not be what you want it to be at all times, but you have greater powers of focus than many around you. You’ll use this to your advantage, leading the opinions and behavior of others. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are so confident in your ability that you don’t even have to think about what exactly you are doing. You long ago mastered the task, and now you concentrate only on the outcome. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Take your time in the planning of your schedule and projects. A creative approach will make everything more fun, and you’ll successfully concoct a compelling agenda for the day. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A project seems to be going on for a very long and arduous time. Still, it’s important to finish with a bang, not a whimper. So gather as much enthusiasm as possible as you head for the finish line. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Items have been discussed, and decisions have been made without you. This will be a happy occurrence because you’ll like the direction everyone is going now. It’s proof that you’ve taught your people well. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There’s someone you need to confront. The first thing you say to this person will be very important and will influence all that happens afterward with a kind of halo effect.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, June 7, 2011— Page 19
––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Tuesday, June 7, the 158th day of 2011. There are 207 days left in the year. Today’s Highlights in History: On June 7, 1776, Richard Henry Lee of Virginia proposed to the Continental Congress a resolution stating “That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States, that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved.” On this date: In 1654, King Louis XIV, age 15, was crowned in Rheims, 11 years after the start of his reign. In 1769, frontiersman Daniel Boone first began to explore present-day Kentucky. In 1848, French painter and sculptor Paul Gauguin was born in Paris. In 1939, King George VI and his wife, Queen Elizabeth, arrived at Niagara Falls, N.Y., from Canada on the first visit to the US by a reigning British monarch. In 1948, the Communists completed their takeover of Czechoslovakia with the resignation of President Edvard Benes. In 1967, the Haight Ashbury Free Medical Clinic opened in San Francisco. In 1981, Israeli military planes destroyed a nuclear power plant in Iraq, a facility the Israelis charged could have been used to make nuclear weapons. In 1998, in a crime that shocked the nation, James Byrd Jr., a 49-year-old black man, was hooked by a chain to a pickup truck and dragged to his death in Jasper, Texas. (Two white men were later sentenced to death for the crime; a third received life with the possibility of parole.) One year ago: U.S. defense officials announced that Army Spc. Bradley Manning had been detained in Baghdad in connection with a video posted on WikiLeaks showing Apache helicopters gunning down unarmed men in Iraq. Today’s Birthdays: Movie director James Ivory is 83. Actress Virginia McKenna is 80. Singer Tom Jones is 71. Poet Nikki Giovanni is 68. Actor Ken Osmond (“Leave It to Beaver”) is 68. Former talk show host Jenny Jones is 65. Actress Anne Twomey is 60. Actor Liam Neeson is 59. Actress Colleen Camp is 58. Singer-songwriter Johnny Clegg is 58. Author Louise Erdrich is 57. Actor William Forsythe is 56. Record producer L.A. Reid is 55. Latin pop singer Juan Luis Guerra is 54. Singer-songwriter Prince is 53. Rock singer-musician Gordon Gano (The Violent Femmes) is 48. Rock musician Eric Kretz (Stone Temple Pilots) is 45. Rock musician Dave Navarro is 44. Actress Helen Baxendale is 41. Actor Karl Urban is 39. Rock musician Eric Johnson (The Shins) is 35. Actress Larisa Oleynik is 30. Tennis player Anna Kournikova is 30. Actor Michael Cera is 23. Actress Shelley Buckner is 22.

Page 20 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, June 7, 2011
Dear Annie: My father passed away a year ago. My brother, who lived closest, was entrusted to oversee my mother’s care. My siblings and I were all aware of the sacrifices Dad made to ensure my mother would be provided for. Their house is not paid off, but there is enough coming in monthly to cover her expenses. A couple of days after Mom received the insurance settlement, my brother borrowed a third of it. He gave her a promissory note and is paying 2 percent interest. A year later, he borrowed half of what was left. My mother just informed me of this when I called on what would have been my dad’s birthday. My brother told her to keep it a secret, so she doesn’t want me to let on. I advised her to move the rest of the money into an account to which my brother does not have access. Right now, I don’t think very highly of my brother and wonder if this is a form of elder abuse. He is having financial difficulties, but so am I, and Mom doesn’t have enough money to fix anyone’s problems. His pay has been downsized, but he has a pretty lavish lifestyle and indulges his kids and wife. Right now, my mother is planning to change her will, since my brother is the executor. What is your advice? -- Disappointed Dear Disappointed: If your brother took this money from your mother without her knowledge or consent, or if Mom was incapable of understanding the repercussions of what she was doing, it would indeed be elder abuse. But it sounds as if your brother is attempting to pay her back, albeit slowly. Before allowing this to escalate into a permanent rift, you should have a family discussion with all your siblings and your mother. Don’t make accusations. Simply discuss how best to see that Mom’s money is used for her benefit. You might want to bring in a financial counselor or attorney to act as mediator.
Dear Annie: My wife and I have been married for 30 years. We each have a child from a previous marriage, and we have a son together. Our marriage has been pretty good over the years except for one thing -- she and her daughter are enmeshed. The biggest problem is the never-ending phone calls. My stepdaughter calls every day, morning, noon and night. We have been interrupted on vacation with meaningless phone calls. I had our landline taken out so I wouldn’t have to answer her calls, but now my wife walks around the house with her cell phone in her hand. This problem has caused countless disagreements. My wife thinks this is fine, although the other children don’t do this. -- Help Dear Help: Some adult children, particularly daughters, tend to call their mothers frequently during the course of the day. Your wife is the one who encourages and permits this, and she has no intention of stopping. Frankly, as long as you don’t have to answer the phone, we strongly urge you to leave this alone. Dear Annie: I have another suggestion for “Help, Please,” who is trying to deal with elderly parents. They should look into adult day care. Many adult day care programs have handicapped vans and pick up and deliver the clients to and from the centers. Entertainment, socialization, meals and companionship are offered. Sometimes the centers have registered nurses on staff, as well as certified recreation therapists. Also included could be such services as showers, manicures, hairdressing and podiatry. -- S.E. Dear S.E.: Thank you for the suggestion. Readers can find adult day care centers through the National Adult Day Services Assn. (nadsa.org), as well as their area agency on aging (1-800-677-1116), family doctor, local health department or senior centers and their phone book. Many centers also offer help with the cost.
