Hug of off duty Detroit cop results in accidental shooting death

DETROIT (AP) — The death of a woman shot in the chest after she hugged an offduty police officer from behind during a party is a tragic, unfathomable accident, Detroit’s police chief said Monday. Adaisha Miller was dancing and celebrating what would have been her 25th birthday the next day, when she hugged the officer from behind during a party Sunday, her mother and authorities said. She died later of gunshot wounds to the chest. Police Chief Ralph Godbee told reporters at a news conference her death is an “unfathomable” accident and the officer is “very remorseful.” “We are profoundly sad at their loss,” he said, referring to Miller’s family. Godbee said the gun was in a waist holster made of soft material, which would have allowed the trigger to be activated. He said there’s no evidence the officer fired the gun, and he believes the gun discharged after Miller see HUG page 8

Obama raised $71M in June but Romney topped that with $106M WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama on Monday said he raised $71 million in June for his re-election campaign, after Republican candidate Mitt Romney reported $106 million during the same period. It was the second consecutive month that Romney collected more cash and underscores the challenge for Obama ahead of November. The grim news for Obama came as his campaign officials have publicly worried they were on track to lose the money race.

Obama’s campaign manager, Jim Messina, in an email to supporters just three days ago, said: “Their gap is getting wider, and if it continues at this pace, it could cost us the election.” Obama is fighting on two fronts to keep the presidency: On one hand, he faces Romney’s own war chest that pays for campaign operations. On the other, he has to push back against the hundreds of millions of dollars flowing to GOP-aligned “super” political action committees, or PACs, which

have aired continual attack ads aimed at Obama and his record. Indeed, wealthy donors have been instrumental in helping Romney beat Obama. When he broke fundraising records last month, Romney’s campaign praised smalldollar donors it said made it possible. But it was actually a small and often wealthy number of donors responsible, who gave an average of about $2,400 each, according to an Associated Press analysis. see FUNDRAISING page 13

WASHINGTON (AP) — Facing sagging jobs numbers, President Barack Obama sought to recast the November election as a fight over tax fairness on Monday, urging tax cut extensions for all families earning less than $250,000 but denying them to households making more than that. The president’s pitch was aimed at painting Republican rival Mitt Romney as a protector of the rich at a time of economic unease, as Democrats intensify efforts to raise questions about the Romney’s own

wealth and offshore bank accounts. Romney supports extending the federal tax cuts, first signed by George W. Bush, for all income earners. Obama said if Congress passes a oneyear extension for those making less than $250,000, voters can use the November election to decide the fate of the cuts for higher income earners. “My opponent will fight to keep them in place. I will fight to end them,” said Obama, flanked by a dozen people the White House

said would benefit from the tax cut extension. The president has long supported ending the Bush-era tax cuts for those making more than $250,000. The White House and the president’s re-election team are reviving his arguments now as a way to suggest that the push by Romney and congressional Republicans for an across-the-board extension of the tax cuts could put America’s middle class at risk. “Let’s not hold the vast majority of see OBAMA page 12

CAIRO (AP) — A new showdown loomed in Egypt on Monday as the country’s highest court stood by its ruling that dissolved parliament last month, challenging the new Islamist president’s plans to reconvene the lower chamber in defiance of the military.

If he goes ahead, Mohammed Morsi would be taking a dramatic step away from the outreach that characterized his first days in office. It’s a tough fight, though, and the president could lose it along with more of his already diminished powers. The military, which handed power to

Morsi on June 30 after ruling the country for 16 months, delivered a thinly-veiled warning to the president, saying it would continue to support the country’s “legitimacy, constitution and law” — language that means it will not stand by and watch see EGYPT page 11

Rye beach closed by shark scare N.H. man has close encounter with shark off Cape Cod RYE, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire beach is closed to swimming after two sharks were spotted in Rye. Swimmers were called out the water on Monday afternoon. A park official says the beach will remain closed on Tuesday. A lifeguard told the Portsmouth Herald that the sharks were about 6 feet long. Park officials were trying to determine what type of sharks were spotted by the man, who ran out the water yelling near Pirates Cove. Cape Cod’s Nauset Beach in Orleans, Mass., was closed briefly Saturday after a kayaker had an encounter with the shark about 50 yards from shore. The beach reopened Sunday, and no sharks have been spotted since then.

AT&T drops fight over Mass. man’s $1M biz phone bill

IPSWICH, Mass. (AP) — AT&T Inc. says it’s dropping its legal fight against a Massachusetts businessman whose company was on the hook for a fraudulent million-dollar phone bill. The telecommunications company said in a statement Monday it is no longer pursuing its claims against Michael Smith of Ipswich, “though we are entitled by law to collect the amounts owed.” Smith said the offer depends on his dropping a countersuit. He’ll meet with his attorney about it on Tuesday. Smith says someone hacked into his small manufacturing company’s phone system in 2009 and made nearly $900,000 in calls to Somalia. AT&T sued Smith for $1.15 million to recover the cost of the calls plus interest. Smith told The Salem News he repeatedly asked AT&T to write off the bill. He said paying it could force his business to close.

(AP) — New Hampshire resident Walter Szulc Jr. laughed it off when his teenage daughter told him they should watch out for sharks when the family went to a Cape Cod beach over the weekend. He wasn’t laughing a few minutes later, when, in his kayak in the ocean not far from shore, he looked behind him and saw the fin of a great white shark within arm’s reach. Szulc, 41, said he immediately “paddled very fast” and was grateful when he reached the shore in the eastern Massachusetts vacation spot. “I saw the fin out of the water ... I looked down and saw the body and realized that part of the shark was underneath me, and I just proceeded to paddle,” Szulc said Monday, adding it all happened very fast and his response “was just instinct — paddle and head out of there.” A photo someone else on the water took of Szulc in his kayak, with the shark’s fin clearly visible behind him, has been widely distributed over the Internet. Szulc, of Manchester, N.H., said he had kayaked as a child on a lake but had never kayaked in the ocean. After he and his family arrived at Nauset Beach in Orleans on Saturday, his 14-year-old daughter mentioned there had been shark sightings on the Cape recently and said maybe they should watch

out while in the water. Szulc said he “made a little bit of a joke of it” and told his daughter there was not much chance of having an encounter on Cape Cod with a great white shark, the type portrayed in the “Jaws” movies. And, with that, he set out in his kayak. Szulc said he was about 50 yards from shore when he saw a man on a paddleboard hold up his paddle and point it at him. “I figured he was trying to tell me something,” Szulc said. “I looked back and saw the fin and the body of the shark right behind me.” Nauset Beach, among the most popular beaches on the lower portion of Cape Cod, was closed briefly Saturday after Szulc’s encounter with the shark. It reopened Sunday, and there have been no shark sightings since then, town beach director Lee Miller said. “There have been reports of sharks in the past, but usually they are farther out, not this close to the bathing beach,” Miller said. Experts say the sharks are being drawn to Cape Cod’s waters by an increase in the population of seals, a favorite meal of the ocean predators. Swimmers in Chatham, about 10 miles south of Orleans, have been told to stay away from seals after sharks were spotted there last week.

Settlement reached in Gilsum AIDS discrimination case CONCORD (AP) — A gay advocacy group says it has reached a settlement in a discrimination lawsuit it filed against a New Hampshire town that attempted to shut down a group home for people with HIV, AIDS and hepatitis C. Boston-based Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders sued the town of Gilsum last year on behalf of AIDS Services for the Monadnock Region after the town refused to grant its group home — the Cleve Jones Wellness House — tax-exempt status and moved to seize its deed for non-payment.

Lawyers filed notice in Cheshire Superior Court last week that they had reached a settlement in the case. Details of the settlement will be filed with the court by Aug. 2. “This case demonstrates that discrimination against people with HIV is hardly a relic of the past,” said attorney Bennett Klein, director of GLAD’s AIDS Law Project. Attorney Gary Kinyon, who represents the town, did not immediately return calls seeking comment Monday. see GILSUM page 12

City overcharged for worker’s comp insurance, may get 2-year premium holiday By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — The city will receive a premium holiday on its worker’s compensation insurance thanks to an agreement reached with the Secretary of State’s office and Primex over excess reserves accumulated by the insurance provider. The city will have a credit of up to $170,000 for future payments according to City Manager Scott Meyers, who said that it is still not clear from the letter from Primex what period the agreement covers and whether or not there will be additional premium savings for the city. Meyers told City Council members last night that the agreement calls for Primex to provide up to $8-million in relief by September and another $8-million by the end of 2013 and $5-million more in future years to affected New Hampshire policy holders. ‘’We’ll be seeking clarification on this and will get back to the council just as soon as we find out,’’ said Meyers, adding that ‘’the bottom line is, is that it’s good news.’’ The city pays about $270,000 a year for the insurance and has already made seven payments totaling about $157,500 this calendar year, although all of the payments do not fall in the current fiscal year. Meyers said that once the situation is clear it may be that the city is facing a two-year premium holi-

day and that the council will want to consider what to do with the funds it will save and may want to look at doing something other than ‘’backing it out of the budget’’ and then having to restore it in future budgets. Commenting on the 2012-13 budget which the council approved last month, Meyers noted that the city portion of the budget could have been increased by $644,000 and remained within the property tax cap but that there was no increase at all and that the school budget, which could have had an allowable increase of $843,000 was 24-percent less than allowed under the tax cap. ‘’We used only 40-percent of what the tax cap allowed for the school and city budgets and that translates into a 15 cent increase in the tax rate, which is a .07-percent hike. ‘’It was a very productive budget which took some progressive actions,’’ said Meyers, who said road paving was increased from $850,000 to $1.3 million while the Highway Department is getting two new dump trucks, a street sweeper and a backhoe and the Fire Department will get a new fire engine. ‘’There’s significant capital investment in this budget,’’ he said in response to comments from Ward 3 Councilman Henry Lipman. He also said that funds saved in winter maintenance costs this past winter are being diverted into a winter maintenance stabilization account which

will be based on a five-year rolling average of maintenance costs and provide funds when needed to keep costs from spiking. Meyers said that cost saving measures taken within city have reduced the number of printers and that four out of the six fax machines are now gone, allowing the reduction of four phone lines while making city hall operations more efficient. In other business: — Ward 6 Councilor Armanda Bolduc suggested that the Weirs roundabout project at “dysfunction junction” could stop right where it is now. ‘’Everyone I’ve talked to says they like it just the way it is.’’ Meyers said he would bring that thought to state officials, pointing out that it is a state DOT project, not a city project. — Meyers said the EPA will be giving a report on its investigation of the possibility that, historically, a toxic chemical leaked into the ground from the Henry’s Dry Cleaners site on Pleasant Street on Wednesday, July 18 at 7 p.m. at the Laconia Middle School. — City officials are looking at changes in the sewer rates for the 700 or so sewer-only customers tied into the city system, most of whom get their water from private wells. They say that there is a high rate of failure for the meters used to measure sewage outputs.

by insurance carriers and the state, which owns the right-of-way — was prohibitively expensive. An attempt to run the trail along Dutile Shore Road failed because all of the easements couldn’t be gotten. Land Use technician Rick Ball said some of the initial route also included some very steep slopes. The trail will begin at the Mosquito Bridge and end at the Belmont Town Beach and will use land behind the Belknap Mall that is owned by the N.H. Department of Transportation. Mitchell told selectmen he had a meeting recently with Diane Hanley and Allan Beetle of the WOW Trail in Laconia and said they offered to lend BRATT the money to re-engineer the trail but selectmen and Mitchell said they were leary because they weren’t in a position to repay the loan. The two trails are expected to meet up at the town line. When Selectman Ron Cormier questioned what he

said seemed like a lot of money for re-engineering a seemingly small portion of the trail, Town Administrator Jeanne Beaudin said there have been a lot of changes at the state and federal level — the project is largely dependent on government grants — and those criteria must be met. She also suggested selectmen wait a few weeks before making any decisions because she said there is $62,000 in the Phase II B.R.A.T.T. Capital Reserve Fund and she would like to get more information about the possibility of using some of that and report back. In other business, Selectmen voted to abate $1,800 of a $4,100 water bill incurred by the estate of a family whose loved one died. According to a letter from the family’s lawyer, a water main broke and the basement filled with nearly 1 million gallons of water. The town’s Water Department noticed the break when a meter reader realized the exorbitant water see BELMONT page 10

Belmont recreation trail needs another $17k in engineering; where’s it to come from? By gAil oBeR


BELMONT — The latest engineering work for the newly relocated B.R.A.T.T. trail will cost an additional $17,000 said Ron Mitchell, the head of the town’s organization that is leading the recreational trail effort, at last night’s Selectboard meeting. The money is needed for a new engineering plan that has to be changed because the trail is now planned to run through the Agway property on Route 3 while the former plan was to have the trail go through Piche’s lot. “Bob Bolduc wasn’t comfortable. I guess he wants to build a building back there,” Mitchell told selectmen at last night’s regularly scheduled meeting. The route of Belmont’s Phase I recreational trail has been altered a number of times. At one point it was to run along the railroad tracks that border Lake Winnisquam, however fencing along the way — required

Exodus II Yesterday, June 28, 2012, the “uncertainty” cited in the letter below was magnified by the Supreme Court of the United States. While the court decided the mandate requiring citizens to purchase health insurance was unconstitutional, it found a way to circumvent that unconstitutionality by calling the penalties for not purchasing the insurance a tax. Nowhere in the Affordable Healthcare Act, as passed, is there a taxing provision. In this case, the court acted as Legislative, Executive, and Judicial Branch, all in one. The stunning decision of the court is fraught with the potential for many undesired “unintended consequences”. As uncertainty reigns in the business community, hiring will be stalled for an even longer period of time until businesses know what the yet unknown “regulations” are going to impose on them. As those delays continue, a few potential consequences may be that companies move even more jobs overseas to more stable and friendlier environments. Federal, state, and local tax revenues will continue to diminish because of the high unemployment. New businesses that would normally have their start-up roots in this country may find themselves being lured to other more favorable locations. As government rolls swell, private sector jobs will diminish and this mismatch will cause the private sector to be taxed at even higher and higher rates to pay for the increased cost of government. While we now borrow one third of what we spend, just to run our government, we will find it more difficult to find those willing to lend us that money and, those that do, will certainly charge us more for doing so. But, worst of all, we may well become subjects of the government and no longer be a government of, by, and for the people. We are not helping ourselves to become stronger, we are sapping our strengths and making ourselves more vulnerable. The following letter was published in the Laconia Daily Sun on July 31, 2011. “To the Editor, Are you concerned yet? When he was a Senator, now President Barak Obama wrote a book titled “The Audacity of Hope”. However, what he has given the people and the economy of this country has not been the audacity of hope but the audacity of uncertainty. That uncertainty has had the entire business community shepherding and protecting resources, not knowing when the uncertainty will end, or what it will bring. The result is a continuing high unemployment rate, which has diminished Federal tax revenues and increased demands on the government for services to the needy. A short time ago, I read that the 2,324-page Obamacare bill has gotten bogged down in writing the

procedures and regulations necessary to implement and manage the enormous healthcare bill. Most current estimates are that it will take a full ten years to complete that task. This has created an uncertainty for employers and workers that, in my memory, is unmatched This uncertainty is an outrageous assault on the business community and, ultimately, on the workers who are in need of a job. Companies can’t plan and implement changes in their operations if they don’t know the costs and conditions the government is going to impose on them. (Independent estimates are that Obamacare alone will cost businesses an additional one trillion dollars) The United States has now surpassed Japan in assessing the highest corporate tax rates in the world. While the government might rail against jobs moving overseas, the uncertainty that has been created will undoubtedly force companies to seek safe havens elsewhere to ensure their companies remain viable. As that happens, instead of looking in the mirror, the Obama administration will try to lay the blame on the business community. In this administration, only about 6-percent of Obama’s advisors have first hand business experience, as compared to an average of over 50-percent in all previous administrations, Democrat and Republican alike. Academic cronies imposing their untested theories on the world’s greatest economy have had disastrous effects. The bottom line is that, contrary to the will of the people, Obamacare, the largest “entitlement” plan ever conceived, was sledge hammered through the congress and forced upon the citizenry and businesses. It puts government in charge of one sixth of the total economy.. The effects of the plan, its rules and regulations, its yet unknown bureaucracy, its costs to the public, medical providers, insurers, and to businesses, are all yet unknowns It has created an uncertainty that has businesses shepherding their resources until some clarity is provided. And that has caused businesses to delay putting money into new capital projects and has perpetuated the problems of unemployment. It won’t be long before businesses will tire of the government imposed uncertainty and decide that it is their fiduciary responsibility to their shareholders to move their operations elsewhere . . . . creating more unemployment and further decreasing tax revenues. And how long before you tire of the uncertainty and its impact on your life? If you’re not concerned, you’re not paying attention. Bob Meade Laconia” (Bob Meade is a resident of Laconia.)

LETTERS Gilford Firefighters have done nothing we’ve been accused of To the editor, First off, I am a member of the Gilford Professional Firefighters and I am writing this letter on my own behalf. Mr. Leandro, you have crossed the line with your letter on July 5th. Do you know who the Gilford Professional Firefighters are? We are an association made up of the 12 full-time firefighters who work for the town of Gilford. There are over 40 people in the department, that includes the fulltime staff, call staff and secretary. You accused the Gilford Professional Firefighters of an “intimidation campaign” by certain members that included physical intimidation and complaints against the town about you. Are you sure you want to make those accusations? I think you had better start doing your homework and get some real facts. There is not one member of the Gilford Professional Firefighters who has confronted you verbally or physically. I challenge you to give names and dates. In my 27 years of being involved with the Gilford Fire Rescue I have never been so insulted from this unprovoked attack. You accuse the chief and the Board of Fire Engineers of being liars. Well Mr. Leandro people who live in glass houses should not throw stones. As far as I can see, any

information you or anyone else has requested on 8E4 has been answered, you seem to just take a little bit of the truth and stretch it. In your letter you claim that an engine from Laconia has never been needed sense April. Well, during three shifts that I have worked sense April I have operated a Laconia engine twice and a Tilton engine once, while Engine 2 was out of service. Are we supposed to report to you whenever we need to make changes, since you think you know fire department operations so well? Out of all those towns you listed with engines over 25 years old did you ask how many of them would run first due when your neighbor’s house is on fire? The bottom line is Gilford Professional Firefighters have done nothing that we are accused of doing. We will continue to provide the upmost professional service that we always have. Anyone who “knows” us knows that. It is sad that I received multiple calls last Thursday from citizens concerned over the slander they read. I apologize for the three or four letters everyone will have to read from the vocal minority, following this one, because they do not think I should have my own opinion. Scott Mooney Gilford

Leandro’s claims that firefighters are trying to intimidate are false To the editor, He calls it scare tactics, when the Gilford Fire Department provides the public with factual and well-documented information on the importance of replacing an unreliable 25 year old fire engine. He calls our fire chief a liar. He calls the Fire Engineers liars. He states there is an intimidation campaign waged against him by the 12 full-time firefighters and fire officers that comprise the Gilford Professional Firefighters. The claims that any member of the Gilford Professional Firefighters has intimidated you are false, and we are requesting an immediate retraction of your statements. But that is nothing new, and a similar theme we hear repeatedly from this minority. Mr. Kevin Leandro has distorted the facts of this issue from day one and taken

a new angle of attack each step of the way. Now he is quoted as saying the Gilford Fire Department can operate effectively with only three fire engines. Mr. Leandro, please share with everyone how your self-proclaimed expertise in hauling dirt with dump trucks, makes you an expert in determining the fire protection needs of our community. The Gilford Professional Firefighters will, as always, continue to stand guard and respond to calls for assistance from the citizens and visitors of Gilford. We will not sit silently at your repeated attempts to disregard the safety of your neighbors, and destroy the reputation of the members of the Gilford Fire Department. And that is a fact.

LETTERS Don’t people have a right to do business where values are shared? To the editor, We have to admit that we were somewhat amused by Niel Young’s recent paranoid-sounding rant in a letter to The Sun. In his letter, Mr. Young accused those who signed the Community Aspirations Statement of wanting “to suppress the words and thoughts of me and others” and of trying to take away his “right to think and speak here in the Lakes Region.” That is quite a stretch of the imagination. Who is trying to suppress you and take away your rights Mr. Young? You have made this accusation in the past. How does the Community Aspirations Statement do that? The people who signed it are simply in favour of a nicer, more civil, and more inclusive community. You asked readers to “read the fine print” of the statement. We have read it over and over and cannot understand how it takes away your rights to express yourself on the radio or in print. Has Ed Engler ever refused to print your letters (as editor, he certainly has THAT 1st Amendment right)? Has anyone arrested or tortured you for your ideas? We don’t think so. Could it just be that you consider disagreement to be “persecution?” As far as people who disagree with your politics boycotting your business, that is an entirely different matter altogether. We are not aware of any organized boycott against you or your supporters. We certainly know that no such language exists in the statement. But, boycotts are an old and

honourable (and peaceful) tactic, used to great effect during the American Revolution, the Civil Rights Movement, the farm workers’ strikes, and a number of other good causes. Boycotts are as American as pecan pie. Remember, conservatives have certainly used the tactic against businesses supporting causes THEY do not agree with. For example, several years ago, the Southern Baptist Convention called for a boycott of Disneyworld because they were friendly to gays and lesbians. It works both ways, Mr Young. We thought you are an outspoken defender of unbridled free enterprise, Mr. Young. If you are, you would have to agree that people have a right to shop and do business with businesses and people who share their values. Perhaps you were boycotted by people that did not share your values and who found your words offensive, false, and mean. But, that is not taking away your 1st Amendment rights. You have a right to speak and others have the right to express how they feel. If you were really boycotted by people who do not share your values, it was simply a form of that expression. An aside to Carol Pierce: Carol, we thought we signed the statement but somehow it did not get to you. Please feel free to add our names to any future publication of the list of signers. It’s a fine statement! E. Scott Cracraft Ellen McClung Gilford

Committee’s effort paid off with 2 1/2% reduced insurance costs To the editor, I am pleased to announce that on Monday July 2, at the Meredith Selectboard meeting, a representative from Primex (Public Risk Management Exchange) presented a prime designation award to our Joint Loss Management Committee (safety committee).

SNAKE from page one Waukewan Watershed Association are assisting the project. New Hampton, Center Harbor, and Meredith all have lake frontage. The lake is the potable water supply for Meredith, and drains into Meredith Bay on Lake Winnipesaukee. Center Harbor designated the east side of the Snake River as prime wetlands, which gives the area extra protection under state law. Lake Waukewan, like others in the state, has experienced excess phosphorus concentrations, which not only threaten water quality, but can also adversely affect property values, which reduces the tax base of the towns. By protecting the wetlands filtering the river, the towns are protecting not only the environment, but also their financial assets and their citizens.

The acquisition is being made possible by a $100,000 grant from the Aquatic Resources Mitigation (ARM) Fund of the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (DES), along with $30,000 in matching funds. The ARM Fund receives fees from development that impacts wetlands, and DES awards competitive grants to compensate for it. In order to receive the funding, the New Hampton Conservation Commission will have to create a stewardship plan with trail designs and property use guidelines, document baseline environmental data, and meet various legal requirements. Meredith will hold a conservation easement on the property, with the help of the Meredith Conservation Commission. The matching funds are coming from the conservation commissions and the Waukewan Watershed Association, which has committed to raising the balance. No property taxes are being used. A similar partnership in 2010 enabled the New Hampton Conservation Commission to purchase the abutting 8.5 acre Jacqueline Spear property on the river.

HUG from page 2 hugged the officer from behind during a party at the officer’s home. “There was some manipulation along the officer’s waistline (that) he did not control,” Godbee told reporters. The officer, whose name was not released, is on desk duty while the case is fully investigated. Police union lawyer John Goldpaugh said the officer didn’t know Miller. “This was just a freak accident,” Goldpaugh told the Detroit Free Press. “They were having a party and the next thing, a woman is dead. He’s devastated by what happened.” Police said previously that the bullet punctured Miller’s lung and hit her heart, and she died at a hospital. Her mother, Yolanda McNair, said the shooting never should have happened. “All she wanted to do was enjoy the weekend for her birthday,” McNair told WDIV-TV. “She had every right to enjoy turning 25 and look beyond that.”

Don’t Miss A Paper! Read us online for free! LETTERS

L.J. is right about one thing: big money corrupts unconditionally  To the editor, L.J. Siden contributed his comments concerning, toxic, political rhetoric submitted in letters to The Daily Sun. Here is the counterpoint. It could be reasonably argued that screaming, yelling and protesting is American DEMOCRACY in the raw, similar to a town meeting every day, only in the paper. I see it as FREEDOM at work, and I suspect many others do as well. Every person has a right to be heard and their beliefs test driven and challenged for logic, accuracy or conflicts of self interest. Conflicted interest is a major concern when reading any letter. As an example, Kathleen Welcome of Groveton attacked my letter on Pell Grant abuse while she pockets tens of thousands in FREE MONEY from them. People handed welfare in whatever form are poor sources for objective thinking regarding ANY handouts being stopped, reduced or reformed. With LJ’s beliefs so strong, I ask him why he wasn’t denouncing the noisy, finger pointing Occupy Wall Street rabblerousers last summer, who were blaming their life’s misfortune on the 1-percent? I am sure you recall the fringe group of un-hygienic Americans yelling, screaming, urinating and defecating in the park. hassling pin stripe types, spitting on the cops and smoke’n who knows what. The truth is protesting and making loud noise in the paper or anywhere to attract attention to ones frustrations is acceptable within the limits of the law. Politics and writing are SUBSTITUTES for WAR. The vast majority of letters to The Sun concern politics at one level or another. Thus letters to the editor are WAR without the bullets but with the same LOUD noise. Look to the TEA party to confirm that angry, emotional, protesting can be successful. In 2010 almost every Democrat up for election lost their job coast-to-coast after many of the tea sippers beliefs and concerns became mainstream that democrats in control of all branches of government were OVER REACHING and OVER SPENDING. Look at Obama right now. It is election year! He has held more than ONE HUNDRED SIXTY political FUND RAISERS since Jan. 1 to raise BIG money. That is more than the previous FOUR presidents COMBINED in the same time period. Why? This will be no slam dunk election like 2008. He needs a billion to BUY more

Re-enactors have family ties to Civil War By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

GILFORD — Many of those re-enactors taking part in a Civil War era encampment held at the Gilford Village Field Saturday have family ties to the history they portray. Dan Meehan, a Rochester firefighter, says that he’s been active with the Sons of Union Veterans for 20 years and that the 12th New Hampshire Volunteer Infantry, which fought in many major battles, including Gettysburg, was re-formed 11 years ago this month to help keep alive the memory of the regiment and to serve as a resource for those interested in knowing what the Civil War was really like. ‘’It’s become a way of life more than just a hobby. Why else would you be wearing flannel clothes on a hot day like this,’’ said Meehan as he spoke with people who showed up at the encampment. He said that through researching his family history many years ago he found that a great-uncle had served with the 5th New Hampshire Regiment and more recently he has come across records showing that four other members of his family, which traces its roots to Ireland, had also served in the war. ‘’We do a lot of talks in schools and put on programs for other groups so that they can see how the soldiers lived and the kind of weapons and equipment they carried,’’ said Meehan, who took a vacation day from his job so that he could take part in the encampment, which was part of Gilford’s bicentennial celebration. He said that he has uncovered many historical gems in his research over the years, including an account of how a Confederate soldier who had escaped from a prison ship in Boston Harbor had made his escape to Rye, New Hampshire, where he was aided by a Confederate sympathizer who was helping to arrange for him to get back to the South when he was recaptured. Roger Nason of New Durham, a software analyst,who has been a re-enactor for the last 11 years. says that his great-great grandfather, Benjamin Falls of Lynn, Mass., fought at Gettysburg and later died in battle at Spottsylvania. He said that some states, such as Kentucky and Maryland, sent troops to both sides during the Civil War and that at the battle of Antietam the 1st Maryland Regiment troops for the Union Army faced the 1st Maryland Regiment of the Confederate forces. Steve Dow of Barrington is new to re-enacting and fired his Civil War era rifle for the first time ever on Saturday. ‘’It’s an interesting thing to do. You get to walk in your ancestor’s foot steps and experience life as they from preceding page I look forward to getting to know as many of the constituents in the district as possible, as well as hearing your viewpoints and discussing public policy with you.

did during the Civil War, except that you get to go home at the end of the day and they couldn’t’’ said Dow, who is a truck driver. John Hollinrake of Warren is in his sixth year with the 12th New Hampshire and also serves with both the 2nd Vermont and 2nd Mississippi. “I’m an equal opportunity re-enactor. I let anyone shoot at me,’’ says Hollinrake. He said that his great uncles, Daniel and Nathaniel Meserve, twin brothers from Wakefield, both fought in the war. Daniel was killed at Fort Schuyler on March 10, 1863 and Nathaniel at the battle of Drewery’s Bluff outside of Richmond, Va. He said that an account of Nathaniel’s death said that he had been hiding behind a log when he looked up to try and locate the enemy and was shot in the forehead and killed instantly. see next page BELMONT from page 4 usage and reported it to his superior. Selectman also wanted to remind residents the Deliberative Session for the possible purchase of the former bank building at 154 Main Street for no more than $250,000 is July 23 at 6 p.m. at the Corner Meeting House. The special Town Meeting will be August 21 in the cafeteria in Belmont High School. Polls will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Man said to have demanded narcotics from Gilford supermarket pharmacy arrested a short while later LACONIA — A Gilford man who is said to have admitted to police he had a drug dependency problem was ordered held on $5,000 cash bail after appearing by video in circuit court this morning. Police affidavits said Michael Lewis, 40, of 131 Lake St. in Gilford went into Osco Drugs, which is inside Shaw’s Supermarket, just after noon Sunday and handed the pharmacist a note telling him to give him some narcotics and that he had a “weapon.” The pharmacist, who knew Lewis as a customer, described him as 6-feet, 6-inches tall and weighing about 220 to 240 pounds. He was able to give police Lewis’s name. Police from Gilford, assisted by Laconia, contacted Lewis’s wife who handed them a bag that contained several bottles of pills as well as some loose pills in the bottom.

She told them she had confronted Lewis when he returned home and had learned what he had allegedly done. Police took Lewis into custody just after 2 p.m. without incident. After being advised of his rights, police said Lewis told them he was addicted to opiates, that he was “jonesing” for the drug, and that his life was falling apart. He said he wrote the note without telling his wife what he was doing and walked to the store. He allegedly told police he and the pharmacist didn’t speak during the alleged robbery. Lewis was found guilty of possession of a controlled drug in 1999 and of theft by unauthorized taking in 2010. — Gail Ober

GILFORD from page one the court gives great weight to the opinion of the fire officials who have the necessary expertise to weigh in on these issues,” he said, addressing the second of the five criteria that must be met in order for his to authorize a special town meeting. McHugh also said the circumstances surrounding the additional repairs needed by Engine 4 could only have been became known when Chief Steve Carrier brought the truck to Lakes Region Fire Apparatus in Tamworth after the request to buy a new pumper tanker failed at March’s town meeting and he was ordered to get the 25-year-old truck fixed. Discussion the removal of a warrant article that, if presented to votes and passed in March, would have allowed the town up to $150,000 to repair or refurbish the old truck, McHugh said he was swayed by the information provided at the hearing by the National Fire Prevention Association that

says fire apparatus older than 25-years old should be replaced and that he could not “quarrel with the conclusion of the Fire Department that the expenditure of additional funds to have a complete inspection was not prudent given the vehicle in question is approximately 25-years-old.” As to the fifth criteria, McHUgh found that the only alternative right now is to spend money on repairs that the town doesn’t have and “that would be akin to throwing good money after bad...” The Selectboard is calling for a vote on September 11, primary election day in New Hampshire. The fire truck initiative will require a three-fifth majority (60-percent) for passage, something McHugh said on the day of the hearing was quite a hurdle. The Selectmen will hold a public hearing on the matter this Wednesday at the Selectmen’s meeting room at 7 p.m.

EGYPT from page 2 the rulings of the country’s top court ignored or breached. At the same time, the Supreme Constitutional Court sent out a clear signal that it will not bow to Morsi’s wish, saying in a statement after an emergency meeting on Monday that its June 14 ruling to invalidate the Islamist-dominated parliament was final and binding. “Morsi’s move sets the stage for a potentially very serious political and constitutional crisis,” said Michael W. Hanna, an expert on Egypt from the New York-based Century Foundation.

Morsi, through his spokesman Yasser Ali, insisted his decision to reconvene the 508-seat chamber on Tuesday was an “assertion of the popular will.” His presidential decree also calls for new parliamentary elections after a new constitution is adopted, something that is not expected before the end of the year — in effect according legitimacy to a legislature the country’s highest court ruled to be invalid.

from preceding page Another relative, James Meserve of Bridgewater, who was with the 2nd New Hampshire Calvary, was captured in May of 1864, only one month after he enlisted, and sent to the infamous Andersonville prison camp, where he died in September of that year. Hollinrake said the real killers during the Civil War were diseases, which claimed the lives of twice as many men as the battlegrounds. History shows that at Gettysburg on July 2, 1863, the 12th New Hampshire was heavily engaged north of the Klingel Farm, facing attack by Wilcox’s Alabama brigade. The regiment had 224 men on the field that day, of whom 26 were killed and 73 were wounded (an additional six men would die of their wounds). Captain John F. Langley (Company F) was in command, and was wounded when the regiment was ordered to withdraw. Lieutenant William H. H. Fernel (Company I) took command and was able to rescue some 50 Union soldiers who were captured during the withdrawal. The following day, only 50 men were fit for duty under the command of Captain Thomas E. Barker (Company B). Placed near the center of the Union line, they helped repulse Pickett’s charge. There is a monument at Gettysburg honoring the 12th New Hampshire.

WYATT PARK from page one cial response area,” which is patrolled three times during each of the three shifts per day. Simmons said that officers have been directed to walk the park, speak to people and report what they observe to the dispatcher. “We haven’t actually seen a lot,” he confessed. Referring to statistics collected by the department, Simmons said that the data suggests few problems, but cautioned that the data records only “what we know happened down there, not what actually happens down there.” In June, there were 1,171 calls for service throughout the city, but only four at Wyatt Park, one for a disturbance, one for loitering, one for an intoxicated person and one for a wanted person. Both Simmons and Hubbard urged residents who witnessed suspicious or inappropriate behavior in the park to call the police. In particular, Hubbard stressed that once the police have identified troublemakers they tend not to frequent the area. A resident, who chose not to be named, agreed. She said that one group of young men “leave as soon as they see you coming.”

“It really has changed,” Perrino said, “there is less traffic, less speeding, less hanging out. She applauded the decision to lock the basketball court, which was the scene of much of the behavior that annoyed neighbors at night , at 8 p.m. instead of 10 p.m. She said that she no longer sees the same groups who were frequent sources of complaints in the past. Chris Guilmett said that “the POP program is working from what I can see.” He said that he recognizes most of the kids using the park and suspects that the numbers from nearby towns congregating there has diminished. Meanwhile, following a meeting of neighborhood residents at the Community Center in May, when plans for the improvement of the park were presented by the Parks and Recreation Department, a group of residents has formed the Wyatt Park and South End Community Revitalization Project. With a $10,000 grant from the Foundation for Healthy Communities, the group intends to take steps to enhance the neighborhood and the park. “This is a gateway to Laconia,” said Guilmett, “that should be a showcase.”

GILSUM from page 2 GLAD filed the lawsuit one year ago, after the AIDS Services organization filed its application for tax-exempt status several days late and the town denied it. Lawyers for GLAD say they determined that other nonprofits in town — including the Congregational Church and the American Legion — filed applications late or not at all yet retained their tax-exempt status. The town agreed to take no action to have the deed transferred to it until the lawsuit was resolved. The group home and town have had legal differences in the past, Klein said. GLAD sued Gilsum in 2008 after the town put up roadblocks to Cleve Jones Wellness House operating on the site of a former group home for

girls, according to Klein. AIDS Services did not file an application in 2007 because its executive director mistakenly believed the tax exemption was automatic, not something that must be filed annually, the lawsuit said. It was filed one month late in 2008 and three days late in 2009. The selectmen have the option of approving late applications for tax exemption. The lawsuit sought a refund of the $11,559 in taxes and interest AIDS Services paid the town in 2010. AIDS services for the Monadnock Region serves clients in Cheshire County and parts of Sullivan and Hillsborough counties. The group home — the first of its kind in the state — houses seven residents.

OBAMA from page 2 Americans and our economy hostage while we debate the merits of another tax cut for the wealthy,” Obama said at the White House. The president’s sudden focus on the tax fairness debate was also an attempt to change the election subject after yet another lackluster jobs report. New numbers released Friday showed the nation’s unemployment rate stuck at 8.2 percent, giving Romney fresh grounds to attack Obama as unfit to steer the U.S. economy. Romney campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul said the president was responding to the bad economic news by calling for a “massive tax increase.” “It just proves again that the president doesn’t have a clue how to get America working again and help the middle class,” Saul said. Obama said his proposal was aimed at staving off an end-of-the year stalemate with Congress. But it appeared to have the opposite effect. Congressional Republicans immediately balked, saying it would be a mistake to raise taxes on anyone while the economy was still struggling to recover. The House GOP plans to make its own push this summer for a

Obama said later Monday that he would veto such a bill if it landed on his desk. Ahead of Obama’s remarks on Monday, White House officials consulted with congressional Democrats to shore up support within the party. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., a member of his party’s Senate leadership, had both previously advocated extending the cuts to those who make up to $1 million annually, but on Monday they stood in solidarity with the president. Obama angered many fellow Democrats in 2010 when he signed off on a full extension of the Bush tax cuts, in part to win concessions from Republicans on other legislation. Extending the tax cuts only for households making below $250,000 would save the government about $800 billion over 10 years compared with extending them for everyone. The full cuts cost the government about $4.5 trillion over a decade. Economists worry that across-theboard tax increases, along with automatic spending cuts also scheduled to take hold at year’s end, could be a blow to the shaky U.S. economy.

3 hurt in sideswipe accident on Lake Shore Road GILFORD — Police continue to investigate a two-car accident that happened just after 1:30 p.m. Sunday that sent three people to Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia with what police are calling non-life threatening injuries. Lt. James Leach said Justin Sperry, 21, of Meredith was headed east in a Ford Focus on Lake Shore Road when he struck a Chevy Equinox headed in the opposite direction. Leach said Sperry “looked away from the road momentarily to his passenger” and when he looked up, he attempted to turn and avoid hitting Julie Derderian’s Equinox. Derderian, who is from Arlington, N.H., continued to head west after the side-swipe type collision and came to rest of the shoulder in the west bound lane. Sperry’s Ford appeared to have spun 90 degrees

after the impact rolled onto its roof and continued to like east on its roof, finally stopping about 100 feet east of the point there to two vehicles side-swiped each other. Leach said the point of impact appeared to be on the double yellow lines and he determined this because of a large gouge in the pavement. He said Sperry and his passenger, Cathrine Minahan, of Wakefield, Mass. were wearing seatbelts and were able to walk away. He said he didn’t know if Derderian was wearing a seat belt. All three were taken by ambulance to Lakes Region General Hospital. Laconia and Alton Police assisted with traffic and the road was closed for a period of time. — Gail Ober

FUNDRAISING from page 2 Like Obama, Romney often touts the high percentage of donors who gave less than $250, underscoring the perception that a large, grassroots group of Americans want him in the White House. Romney’s campaign said that about 94 percent of 571,000 donors gave those amounts in June, or about $22 million. But that leaves a little more than 34,000 responsible for the rest of the $83.8 million, the AP found. That’s about $2,400 on average per person. Just as first-class passengers pay the bulk of an airline flight’s costs, wealthy donors to Romney and Obama often make the difference for campaigns. Even for Obama, who harnessed the power of small, grassroots donations to help clinch the presidency four years ago, more than twothirds of his supporters gave $200 or more. Both men have broad geographic appeal, with contributions from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Discounting small donors would ignore an important measure of support for the candidates, particularly as Romney is gaining on the president in terms of cash left in the bank. Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, a Romney surrogate, said June’s contributions point to an increasing grassroots-fundraising movement that he said is exceeding expectations. “People feel the country is on the wrong track,” Pawlenty said in an interview. “They’re hopeful and excited. And they’re willing to chip in.” Meanwhile, large contributors — up to the legal limit of $2,500 for the campaign during the primary and another $2,500 during the general election - are

vital in an election whose cost might surpass $1 billion. In May, for example, a month after Romney began raising money with the Republican Party, he raised $76.8 million - more than Obama and Democrats by about $16 million. During that month, only one in six donors accounted for $64.8 million - or 84 percent - of that cash. The importance of high-dollar donors underscores the more than 100 fundraising events Romney has held since earlier this spring, in tony locales like Park City, Utah; Aspen, Colo.; and the Hamptons. Just this weekend, an evening dinner at the ocean-front Hamptons estate of billionaire industrialist David Koch cost $50,000 per person or $75,000 per couple. Obama’s campaign hosts glitzy campaign events of its own, more recently at actor George Clooney’s mansion in California. But Romney’s fundraising surge underscores how wealthy donors are creating a financial challenge for Obama - who once assailed the influence of corporate money and super PACs. Republican-aligned super PACs, including Restore Our Future and American Crossroads, plan to spend hundreds of millions of dollars this election to defeat Obama. While Obama has super PACs working in his favor, they haven’t harnessed the large sums of money that the proRomney groups have been able to do so far. As a result, Obama’s campaign has said repeatedly and publicly that the president could be the first incumbent to be out-raised by his challenger. That message has come lately in the form of online fundraising pleas, asking supporters for small donations - usually $3 - to help push back against Romney.

City gets $50k grant to help plan for new zoning overlay districts LACONIA — The city has been awarded a $50,000 Community Planning Grant by the New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority, which will be applied to preparing overlay zoning districts for mixed-use development and multi-family housing in the downtown and at The Weirs. The New Hampshire Finance Authority was one of 27 state and local agencies to receive a share of $28-million distributed by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development through its Community Challenge Grant program. Laconia was among 22 municipalities in New Hampshire to receive with an aggregate value of $550,000. The overlay districts will incorporate guidelines and standards for

architectural design, building placement, streetscapes, pedestrian walkways, traffic flow, parking space, common areas and financing options. The city has established tax increment financing, or TIF, districts downtown and in Lakeport and first proposed doing the same at The Weirs in 2004. State law authorizes municipalities to define a TIF district then apply a portion of the future tax revenues that accrue from the increase in assessed value generated by new construction, expansion or renovation of property in the district to finance public improvements within it. Likewise, the Planning Department has sought to address the zoning at The Weirs, which is now divided into a number of districts.

KANSAS CITY (AP) -— Prince Fielder made a splash at the All-Star Home Run Derby. Eight of them. The Detroit slugger joined Ken Griffey Jr. as the only players to win multiple titles, thrilling the crowd at Kauffman Stadium with several shots into the right-field fountain and beating Toronto’s Jose Bautista 12-7 in the final Monday night. “Just being mentioned with him is real special,” said Fielder, who spent time at Griffey’s house when he was a kid. “My dad would let me go over and play video games all day. He always took care of me when I was a kid.” On a night when the Yankees’ Robinson Cano was repeatedly booed and went homerless, Fielder put on the most powerful display among baseball’s big boppers. Winner at St. Louis’ Busch Stadium three years ago, Fielder had a total of 28 home runs over three rounds to cap the main event on the eve of the All-Star Game. He hit the four longest drives of the night, including a pair at 476 feet. “They were far,” he said. “That’s not easy to hit it out there.” While the ball stayed out of McCovey Cove during the 2007 Derby

at San Francisco’s AT&T Park and the right-field swimming pool last year at Chase Field in Phoenix, there was plenty of aquatic activity in Kansas City, second only to Rome for most fountains in cities around the world. After three splash shots among his five homers in the first round, Fielder started off the second round as the setting sun lit up clouds in a pretty pink behind the left-field wall. His mop of dreadlocks visible as he hit without a helmet, Fielder deposited four more balls into the 322-foot-wide water spectacular, which by then was illuminated in the twilight. He added another water drive in the final round, then leaned against one of his sons while he watched Bautista swing. “I’m a little disappointed,” Bautista said. “I’m capable of doing more. I had a lot of fun doing it.” When he won three years ago in St. Louis, Fielder’s 23 homers included a 503-foot drive that disappeared between two sections of bleachers in right-center. Griffey won titles in 1994 at Pittsburgh’s Three Rivers Stadium, 1998 at Denver’s Coors Field and 1999 at Boston’s Fenway Park.

She baked Gilford’s big cake Bill and Sally Bickford of Kitchen Cravings in Gilford say they’ve received far too much credit for the Gilford Bicentennial Birthday cake, a 250 pound creation which required four police officers to carry it at the opening ceremony for the town’s Bicentennial Celebration kickoff last month. They say that Tegan Lavallee of Gilford, shown above, who has been baking for them for two years, did almost all of the work on the cake, which featured eight different flavors, including cocolate, vanilla, strawberry chocolate chip, orange chocolate chip, blueberry and spice. The cake, which featured replicas of the Grange Hall and the Community Church meeting house, had 60 pounds of frosting with roofs of the buildings made from Rice Krispie squares. Lavallee spent more than 25 hours baking and decorating the cake. A graduate of Lakes Region Community College, where she took part in the school’s Culinary Arts Program, Tegan has perfected her own T-Clairs recipe, which she bakes in her home, and worked at Abodante’s in Meredith before coming to work at Kitchen Cravings.

television set in North Carolina, where he was an analyst on a live broadcast, and flew to Daytona International Speedway. Hornish arrived right before the start of the race. A cut tire contributed to his 33rd-place finish. Penske Racing president Tim Cindric said Monday the team is again going with Hornish this week because making the decision allows the No. 22 team to move forward with its preparations without any uncertainty.


CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — AJ Allmendinger is “shell-shocked” by his failed drug test and his business manager said Monday that the suspended NASCAR driver is working hard to determine what went wrong. Allmendinger was suspended by NASCAR just before Saturday night’s race at Daytona for failing a random June 29 drug test. NASCAR on Monday received an official request for Allmendinger’s “B’’ sample to be tested. “He was a little dumbfounded and shell-shocked Saturday night, and yesterday, it just seemed a little surreal,” business manager Tara Ragan told The Associated Press. “It’s just so far from AJ’s character, and he’s trying to come to terms with what has just happened and figure out how this could happen and respect NASCAR’s process.” Penske Racing said it is working with NASCAR to “follow its process and procedures,” but the team will use Sam Hornish Jr. this weekend at New Hampshire in Allmendinger’s No. 22 Dodge. Ragan said Allmendinger is working with Penske Racing to help the organization “get to the bottom of this.” NASCAR and Penske officials have not said what Allmendinger tested positive for, and Allmendinger has made no statement since his suspension. Allmendinger is the second Sprint Cup Series driver suspended since NASCAR implemented its drug policy in 2009. Jeremy Mayfield chose not to participate in NASCAR’s rehabilitation program and instead contested his 2009 suspension in court. He eventually lost his fight after a lengthy battle, and has not raced since. Allmendinger is the fourth driver spanning NASCAR’s three national series to be suspended for a failed drug test; none of the previous three has been re-instated. He was clearly caught off guard by the test results; Allmendinger’s Twitter feed showed he was appearing on behalf of sponsor Shell/Pennzoil less than two hours before the suspension was announced at 6 p.m. Saturday According to the timeline provided by NASCAR, its medical review officer first alerted Allmendinger of his positive test about six hours before the suspension was announced. Allmendinger then had the opportunity to explain the result, and the medical officer had the responsibility to investigate any offered explanation. Under NASCAR’s procedures, it’s assumed Allmendinger was unable to provide a plausible reason for the failed drug test because the second step — alerting NASCAR to the positive result — was done at 2:30 p.m. NASCAR then met with Allmendinger and a senior Penske official, and the suspension was announced roughly 90 minutes before the start of the race. Hornish was the emergency substitute for Allmendinger on Saturday night. He was pulled off a

WHAT IS SCALING & ROOT PLANING ? Scaling and root planing (S&RP) is one of the treatments used to treat patients with periodontal (gum) disease, which is an infection in the supporting structures of our teeth (bone, gums, root surfaces, ligaments). This complex disease involves a tremendous number of bacteria and does not go away by itself. An estimated 20% of Americans have gum disease; it is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. Most people don’t know they have it because it doesn’t hurt until it gets very advanced. Even people who have moderate to severe gum disease are usually comfortable with their teeth and unaware that they have a problem until it is too late to treat it (except by extraction, which is effective but unfortunate). In lay terms, a scaling and root planing treatment is sometimes referred to as a “deep cleaning”. During this procedure, bacteria (plaque) and calculus (or “tartar”) are removed (“scaled”) from the roots below the gumline. After the bacteria are removed, the root surfaces are smoothed (planed) to complete the cleaning process. The body can then begin the healing process since the toxins have been eliminated. With follow-up cleanings on a regular basis and vigilant homecare, this disease can be controlled. S&RP can be an effective procedure when treating gum disease, although in some cases other treatment is also needed. Early intervention is the best way to recover your good health, and S&RP is a cost-effective and comfortable “first line” treatment pathway. If your gums bleed when you brush or floss, ask about scaling and root planing. It’s a lot easier and cheaper than losing your teeth.

Pooch Café LOLA

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You know what you know. Who else wants to know it? That is the question. You’ll answer it. And you’ll make money with the answer, too. How cool is that? SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Maybe you’ve heard that nature is stronger than man. Then again, isn’t man a part of nature? You’ll prove today that man is a mighty part, indeed, when you assert yourself against the forces of nature and win. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You know what you think is true, but others don’t believe the same way. Instead of starting a debate, you will likely agree to disagree, which is the most civil, mature thing to do. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When things are not going your way, you’ll persist. Sitting back and waiting just isn’t your style. Light nudges forward are often all it takes to start some momentum. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ve grown some protective boundaries, and it’s good that you have them in place. You need a degree of security in order to do your important work. You’ll feel safe enough to fully exert yourself. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 10). You’ll get what you want because you’re willing to sacrifice a bit of comfort and security to get it. Love and risk go together now through the end of August, an exciting time indeed. Connections you make in September lead you into a brave new world. The victories of your team are your victories, too, in December. January brings a windfall. Taurus and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 3, 19, 2 and 29.

by Darby Conley

ARIES (March 21-April 19). One thing you can count on is that however good or bad a situation may be, it will change. You’ll likely find that the impermanence of today’s situation is what makes it remarkably beautiful. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll float in time today. “Nostalgia” describes a feeling for the past, altered from its original form. But what feeling for any time period other than the now moment is (SET ITAL) not (END ITAL) altered in some way? GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When you’re seeking opportunity, you might stop and consider that life itself is an opportunity. So the seeking can end. On with the business of accepting what you see and following it to the next evolution. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll be taken to the next level of excitement. The one who is sensitive will notice how you’re feeling and try to help you feel better. This is true even when you are already feeling joyful. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are connected to your family, and they feel your feelings in some small way all the time. With the onus of emotion on you, you feel obligated to be happy. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll act on a whim. If it winds up fruitful, it was a good idea; if not, it will lead you back to where you were. Either way, you’ve progressed. Hard to see, perhaps, but you have. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your responsibilities are many, and they are also few. It all depends on what you claim. You’ll look at your scene with a judicious eye. Which responsibilities are really yours?

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Tuesday, July 10, the 192nd day of 2012. There are 174 days left in the year. Today’s Highlights in History: On July 10, 1962, AT&T’s Telstar 1 communications satellite, capable of relaying television signals and telephone calls, was launched by NASA from Cape Canaveral. President John F. Kennedy signed the All-Channel Receiver Act, which required that new TV sets be capable of receiving UHF channels 14 through 83 in addition to VHF channels 2 through 13. On this date: In 1509, theologian John Calvin, a key figure of the Protestant Reformation, was born in Noyon, Picardy, France. In 1890, Wyoming became the 44th state. In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson personally delivered the Treaty of Versailles (vehr-SY’) to the Senate, and urged its ratification. In 1940, during World War II, the Battle of Britain began as Nazi forces began attacking southern England by air. In 1951, armistice talks aimed at ending the Korean War began at Kaesong. In 1961, Mildred E. Gillars, also known as “Axis Sally,” was paroled from a federal prison in West Virginia after serving 11 years for treason for her propaganda broadcasts from Nazi Germany during World War II. In 1973, the Bahamas became fully independent after three centuries of British colonial rule. In 1982, Pope John Paul II named Archbishop Joseph L. Bernardin of Cincinnati to succeed the late Cardinal John Cody as head of the Archdiocese of Chicago. In 1985, the Greenpeace protest ship Rainbow Warrior was sunk with explosives in Auckland, New Zealand by French intelligence agents; one activist was killed. In 1991, Boris N. Yeltsin took the oath of office as the first elected president of the Russian republic. In 1992, a New York jury found Pan Am guilty of willful misconduct and responsible for allowing a terrorist bomb to destroy Flight 103 in 1988, killing 270 people, opening the way for civil lawsuits. One year ago: The space shuttle Atlantis docked with the International Space Station, the final such hookup in orbit. Britain’s best-selling Sunday tabloid the News of the World, brought down by a phone-hacking scandal, signed off with a simple front page message: “THANK YOU & GOODBYE.” Today’s Birthdays: Former boxer Jake LaMotta is 91. Writer-producer Earl Hamner Jr. is 89. Actor William Smithers is 85. Actor Lawrence Pressman is 73. Singer Mavis Staples is 73. Actor Mills Watson is 72. Actor Robert Pine is 71. Rock musician Jerry Miller is 69. International Tennis Hall of Famer Virginia Wade is 67. Actor Ron Glass is 67. Actress Sue Lyon is 66. Folk singer Arlo Guthrie is 65. Country-folk singer-songwriter Cheryl Wheeler is 61. Rock singer Neil Tennant is 58. Banjo player Bela Fleck is 54. Country singersongwriter Ken Mellons is 47. Actor Gale Harold is 43. Country singer Gary LeVox is 42. Actor Aaron D. Spears is 41. Actress Sofia Vergara is 40. Rockabilly singer Imelda May is 38. Actor Adrian Grenier is 36. Actress Gwendoline Yeo is 35.

PET OF THE WEEK IS PHIL PHIL Beagle’s have the best noses in the world of dogs. They can smell things other dogs are only mildly aware of. Needless to say it comes as no surprise to those of us in the sheltering industry that Phil, formerly a stray, has not been claimed and indeed could have wandered from miles away. He was found quite close to the City recycling center, doubtless nosing around for something to eat. Brought under police protection to our shelter he has been waiting since May for his forever home.

Personably, chummy, friendly to all, other that his slight rotundity, he is a great dog. Sturdy and in his prime – we think he is about three years old, please come and see him, take him for a walk on the trails at our shelter. Call 524-3252 or check

MOULTONBOROUGH — The Loon Preservation Committee (LPC) will hold its first annual “LPC Kayak-A-Thon” or “Yakking for Loons” to be held on Friday, July 13. Paddlers will meet at Lee’s Mill Landing, just down the road from The Loon Center on Lake Winnipesaukee, at 8 a.m. and can choose between the 2.5 mile “Ganzy” course or the 4.6 mile “Green’s Basin” course, or do both. Those without kayak can rent one at the landing along with a paddle and lifejacket for only $20, or use a paddleboard or canoe. Registration is $10/person and includes a light lunch. Yakkers can also solicit additional sponsors, if they choose, with all proceeds benefiting the Loon Preservation Committee. The first 50 paddlers to register will receive an LPC “Yakking for Loons” baseball cap, and there will be a prize for most funds raised. Registration and pledge forms can be downloaded from LPC’s website: Children under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. Registration deadline is July 9. Co-chairing the event are LPC members, and neighbors on Lake Winnipesaukee, Linda Allen and Joanne Chesley. Their love for paddling and their resident loons prompted them to approach LPC with this idea for raising funds. For more information about “Yakking for Loons” contact Lin O’Bara at or by calling 603-476-LOON. The Loon Preservation Committee, a non-profit organization, works to preserve loons and their habitats in New Hampshire through monitoring, research, management and education.

Demonstration on alternatives to hazardous products offered July 12

LACONIA — The Lakes Region Planning Commission (LRPC) staff will hold a demonstration on how to use a variety of recipes and tips as alternatives to household hazardous products. The free demonstration will take place at the Meredith Community Center on Thursday July 12 at 6:30 p.m. The LRPC was able to obtain a small grant from NH DES to pay for the printing of a large batch of the “Alternatives to Household Hazardous Waste” flipbooks. The flipbook is a compact, wire-bound, eyecatching resource of Tips and Recipes that people can keep around the house. It is full of low cost and less toxic recipes to be used for cleaning and maintaining the house, garage, yard, and workbench. The objective of this workshop is to get more of these flipbooks into the hands of Lakes Region residents and demonstrate some of these alternatives in an effort to reduce the amount of household hazardous waste that people bring into their home. The flipbooks will be distributed free to all participants. Space is limited for this event, so RSVP at djeffers@ or by calling 279-8171.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, July 10, 2012— Page 25


Dear Annie: My husband, “Kevin,” and I have been together for nine years. Every summer, Kevin used to go to the beach for a week’s vacation with a family he was close to. The entire group numbered about 15 people. Three years ago, Kevin told me he wanted to start taking vacations with them again. I was not invited. Kevin said there wasn’t enough room, and he’d have to sleep on the floor, which wouldn’t work for his chronic back problems. This year, I insisted on being included, so he grudgingly asked if I could come, but it is a sore spot now. I have spoken to Kevin multiple times about my feelings of abandonment stemming from his preference to exclude me from these vacations, and I never get a direct answer as to why he doesn’t want me to come. All he says is that he’s afraid I’ll somehow insult them. Annie, I had nothing against these people until my husband started ditching me to be with them. Worse, the 34-year-old daughter has come to our house twice and made herself right at home, taking food from the fridge and glasses from the cabinet. She’s had drug problems and recently was arrested for breaking and entering. This makes me uneasy, particularly since Kevin takes a lot of prescription medications. I get angry whenever I hear one of them talking about the next beach trip, and I start criticizing them to Kevin because I can’t seem to get through to him how this makes me feel. What can I do? -- Sad, Hurt and Confused Dear Sad: The fact that your husband wants to take his summer vacation without his wife and in the company of a drug abuser is suspicious and worrisome. Frankly, we think this environment is unhealthy for Kevin, and that’s why he doesn’t want you around. Stop criticizing this family and work on Kevin. He’s not being honest with you. Dear Annie: My 33-year-old daughter is expecting my first

grandchild soon. Her friends are giving her a baby shower in two weeks. My son, who lives near his sister, has a “surprise” new wife who has not been invited. My daughter thinks it would be too stressful to meet her new sister-in-law for the first time at her shower. I think all the female members of the family should be invited, even new ones. I will be flying in to attend the shower and want to visit my son and his new bride. This means he will wonder why I’m in town. I don’t want his new wife to feel slighted that she wasn’t invited to the shower. I realize I can’t tell my 33-yearold daughter what to do. I just don’t know whether to tell my son that we are coming. -- Don’t Like Secrets Dear Secrets: It is not a lie to tell your son that you are in town to meet his new wife, because that is part of your trip. However, if your daughter truly wanted to include her new sister-in-law at the shower, she could easily make her acquaintance within the next two weeks. She is being unkind, and this could lead to future problems. Please do your best to encourage her to invite her brother’s new wife. Dear Annie: This is in reply to “Trish,” who sent her guidelines for dating. She said he or she must be employed, own his or her own car, and cannot live with his or her mother or sleep on his or her best friend’s couch. When I met my husband, he had no job, didn’t own a car and was sleeping on his best friend’s couch. Within a year, he joined the Marines and we were married. After serving in Vietnam, he came home and together we raised two sons. We have had the most wonderful 47 years. He’s the best husband and father I could imagine: loving, patient and caring. I’m so grateful that I was unaware of Trish’s guidelines and followed my heart -- Truly Blessed
