Yoga teacher fired for glaring at texter

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Looks may not kill, but they can get you fired. That’s what a Northern California yoga instructor found after leading sessions at Facebook’s Menlo Park campus. The instructor, Alice Van Ness, said she got fired after she glared at a Facebook employee who texted during a class in June. “The whole point for most people going to yoga is that it’s disconnecting from the outside world,” said Van Ness, a 35-year-old San Carlos resident who has taught yoga for six years. “If you are bringing your phone into class, why are you even there?” Van Ness told the Facebook class to turn their phones off after seeing a female employee with a cellphone out. Later, while demonstrating a difficult pose, she caught the same worker typing on her phone. Van Ness said she stayed silent, but shot the woman a disapproving look. The employee stepped out before returning to the class, Van Ness said. According to a termination letter from Plus One Health Management that was prosee YOGA page 3

Romney jeered at NAACP convention for trashing Obamacare HOUSTON (AP) — Unflinching before a skeptical NAACP crowd, Mitt Romney declared Wednesday he’d do more for African-Americans than Barack Obama, the nation’s first black president. He drew jeers when he lambasted the Democrat’s policies. “If you want a president who will make things better in the African-American community, you are looking at him,” Romney told the group’s annual convention. Pausing as some in the crowd heckled, he added, “You take a look!”

“For real?” yelled someone in the crowd. The reception was occasionally rocky though generally polite as the Republican presidential candidate sought to woo a Democratic bloc that voted heavily for Obama four years ago and is certain to do so again. Romney was booed when he vowed to repeal “Obamacare” - the Democrat’s signature health care measure and the crowd interrupted him when he accused Obama of failing to spark a more robust economic recovery. “I know the president has said he will

do those things. But he has not. He cannot. He will not,” Romney said as the crowd’s murmurs turned to groans. At other points, Romney earned scattered clapping for his promises to create jobs and improve education. In an interview with Fox News after the speech, Romney said he had expected the negative reaction to some of his comments. “I am going to give the same message to the NAACP that I give across the country which is that Obamacare is killing jobs,” he said. see ROMNEY page 12

N.H. Employment commissioner resigns in face of nepotism charge

CONCORD (AP) — The head of New Hampshire Employment Security has stepped down following a complaint alleging that she had her daughter hired to a summer job then ordered a subordinate to lay her daughter off so she could collect unemployment benefits. Commissioner Tara Reardon submitted a letter of resignation to Gov. John Lynch that was read and accepted at the Executive Council meeting on Wednesday. The

letter did not mention the complaint, first reported by The Telegraph of Nashua. Lynch said Reardon would be on paid administrative leave through Aug. 31. Without mentioning the complaint, Reardon suggested in a statement later Wednesday that it stems from some disgruntled department employees, and said that stepping down was best for the department as she defends herself “from these attacks.”

In the complaint, two co-workers accused Reardon of violating the state’s anti-nepotism law and executive branch ethics rules. It alleges Reardon ordered the agency’s personnel chief to lay off Reardon’s daughter from a part-time summer internship so the daughter could qualify for unemployment benefits. Reardon, who was nominated by the governor, was appointed commissioner in May see NEPOTISM CHARGE page 6

Circus left town after 3-day run with Laconia Main Street Initiative smiling By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Drew Seneca, a member of the Main Street Initiative, said the two performances of the Kelly Miller Circus he attended, and the third at which he helped direct parking lot traffic, were full of smiling patrons.. Although the last of the circus’s shows was Sunday, Seneca and his colleagues are still smiling in its wake. “I think it was a tremendous success,” he said of the circus. Estimates of overall attendance put the figure at approximately the same as last year, which was the first time in a half-century that a circus has visited the city. Those in the shows might have perceived a lower attendance, though, because there were seven shows this year instead of the six offered in 2011. This year, the Kelly Miller visit was sponsored by the Main Street Initiative, an organization with the goal of increasing foot traffic and commerce downtown. For their part in organizing and promoting the circus, the Initiative received a portion of ticket sales. However, the organization’s primary motivation in bringing the circus to town, according to Main Street President John Moriarty, was to bring a unique form of family-friendly excitement and entertainment, something that gets people out from behind their Facebook accounts and interacting with their neighbors in a meaningful way. “All that happened thanks to bringing the circus to Laconia.” Financially, the organization was hoping to break even or better, said Moriarty. He was pleased to report that the Main Street Initiative, which operates on a modest budget, realized a positive net gain

Raccoons chase & attack Washington state woman LAKEWOOD, Wash. (AP) — A Washington state woman says she was attacked and bitten by raccoons after her dog chased several of the animals up a tree. Michaela Lee had just finished jogging in Lakewood’s Fort Steilacoom Park on Monday when her dog got loose. When she went to grab the dog’s leash, several other raccoons started to scratch her legs, chased her for about 75 feet, knocked her down and bit her. Neighbor Michael Parks tells The News Tribune he heard Lee screaming and saw her on the ground. He called 911. Two other neighbors also went to help. Lee says her American dingo dog began barking and helped drive the raccoons off. The 28-year-old Lee was treated for about 16 puncture wounds and had numerous scratches. YOGA from page 2 vided to The Associated Press by Van Ness, she was warned prior to the class that she could not enforce a cellphone ban. David Milani, a representative of Plus One Health Management, declined to comment specifically on Van Ness’ case. But he said company instructors who teach at some companies including Facebook are required to allow fitness members to pick up their phones during class. Van Ness thought it would blow over, until she was fired two weeks later. The Facebook employee was embarrassed and shocked by the “confrontation” with the instructor, the termination letter indicated. The company feared making clients unhappy, Van Ness said. “We are in the business of providing great customer service. Unless a client requires us to specifically say ‘no’ to something, we prefer to say ‘yes’ whenever possible,” an official wrote in the termination letter.

take on one more un-budgeted activity this year,” said Moriarty. “We’ve got some really good ideas.” The Main Street Initiative, for example, is the organizing force behind the popular Outdoor Marketplace, held on Thursday afternoons. Analysis of the ticket sales showed that people were willing to travel from afar. Outlets in Alton, Wolfeboro and Plymouth all had strong sales, Moriarty said. “What it reaffirms is Laconia is a central marketplace... all roads lead to Laconia.” Looking forward, Morarity expected the Main Street Initiative to bring the circus back to A late arriving family buys tickets for the Kelly Miller Circus at Laconia’s Memorial Park on Sunday Laconia for a third visit. afternoon as one of the stars of the show (left background) waits patiently for her turn in the center However, he didn’t know ring.

‘Casino’ capitalists playing with fire Comes now news from across the pond that executives at one of the world’s most respected banks, Barclays, rigged Libor. Even the venerable Bank of England is apparently being investigated. For sports fans, this is like fixing the Super Bowl or doping a horse in the Derby. But it is rather more serious. For the London Interbank Offered Rate is the benchmark interest rate for trillions in loans around the world. Manipulate Libor a small fraction of a point, and lenders reap millions more in interest income on hundreds of billions in loans. How many more such blows to their credibility can the financial elites sustain before people turn on the capitalist system itself? Recall. Three years into the Great Depression, the Republican Party — America’s Party since Abraham Lincoln’s time — was crushed by FDR. Socialist Norman Thomas won 900,000 votes in 1932. Communist William Z. Foster won more than 100,000. Charging “moneychangers in the temple of our civilization” with moral culpability, FDR became the century’s most successful politician. Demagogic, perhaps, but in 1936 FDR would carry every state but Maine and Vermont. In recent decades, a series of shocks has fertilized the ground for a populist assault on global capitalism. In Europe, radical parties of the right and left are rising — to overthrow the establishment center. Manifest incompetence is but one cause of the sinking confidence in our financial elite. In the Latin American debt crisis of the 1980s, our idiot-bankers had to be bailed out with Brady bonds. In 1995, one year after NAFTA passed, Mexico threatened to default. Goldman Sachs was bailed out of its huge Mexican exposure by a loyal alumnus, Treasury’s Robert Rubin, who dipped into the U.S. Exchange Stabilization Fund. Mexico devalued and began dumping winter vegetables into the United States, wiping out Florida producers, as U.S. plants moved south to exploit the newly cheapened Mexican labor. In the Asian debt crisis of the 1990s, Rubin and Alan Greenspan led the bailouts. Asia’s nations devalued and began exporting heavily to the United States to earn the dollars to pay back their loans. Who paid for that bailout? U.S. workers who lost manufacturing jobs when cheap Asian goods poured into the U.S. market, forcing the closure of U.S. factories. The Great Recession of 2008-2012, too, is the creation of a financial elite and political class who have largely escaped its consequences. George W. Bush and Congress pushed banks to make home loans to individuals who were credit risks. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac bought up the subprime mortgages and bundled them

together into securities. Big banks traded them like gilt-edged bonds. When the whole house of paper collapsed in 2008, the banks screamed: “We’re too big to fail. If we go down, the country goes down.” They were rescued. The Fed bought up the bad paper, tripled the money supply and lent at near zero interest to the banks. Profits soared. But Middle America was not rescued. Middle America has gone through four years of deprivation without precedent since the 1930s. But now something beyond the incompetence of the financial elite and the big banks may be putting capitalism in peril — an unmistakable odor of amorality, sleaziness and corruption. With the “Robber Barons,” one could see a connection between the wealth of the Rockefellers, Harrimans, Carnegies and Henry Ford,and their contributions. Railroads were tying America together. Oil was fueling industry. America was surpassing Britain in steel production. Ford was putting the nation on wheels. When J.P. Morgan took to the floor of the New York Stock Exchange in 1907 to issue a buy order, he stopped a panic. There was perceived to be a connection between the wealth of these men and their achievements. They were helping make America the most awesome industrial nation known to man. But as scholar William Quirk writes in his essay “Saving the Big Casino,” our big banks now seem to rise and fall on profits and losses from the trading of “derivatives,” “credit default swaps” and “exotic securities” that not one man in a thousand understands. Fortunes are lost and made overnight. Names appear on the list of richest Americans no one has ever heard of. Cheating and corner-cutting are constantly being unearthed. Broker- and banker-gamblers in their 30s amass and flaunt ninefigure fortunes. Were the rest of America doing well, this might not matter. But America is not doing well. And Americans are coming to believe that a system where high-rollers rake in tens of millions playing Monopoly while workers who build things and make things never see a pay raise is rigged and wrong. Few begrudge a Bill Gates his fortune. But where vast wealth accrues to people whose actions seem unrelated to any contribution to society or country, and to have come simply from rigging the system for their own benefit, that system will not endure. Our casino capitalists are playing with fire.

He won the New Hampshire Republican Primary in 1996.)

LETTERS Real education needs ignored as money is funneled into games To the editor, Many people will congratulate both the Bank of NH and Irwin Marine for their generous monetary gifts to Laconia High School. I, for one, have a two-fold opinion. I also applaud the outpouring of support for school programs, but the real, critical needs are further ignored when so much money goes for games on the field, and not for improving (or even acknowledging) the dire condition of academic — long standing deficiencies in schools today! If my information is correct, the proficiency rating for math is 20-percent. That is saying only one out of every five students understands math! Do you believe those numbers? The job market today requires skilled workers: Math and science are the cornerstones of necessary talents industry is looking for, and in many cases not finding. New Hampshire Ball Bearing recently reported they had 50 unfilled positions. The talent simply isn’t there! And we, as a community, put our precious dollars into a new football field! Remember this: games have no consequences: Education has life-long consequences Should the Bank of NH be concerned about this? Don’t they have every right to put their money wherever they choose?

Of course they do! But when a public school is failing their mandate to educate, doesn’t that fact trump every thing else? Our percentile standing in the industrial world is somewhere in the middle: Asians, especially, will get the better jobs. Why? Because we have inverted the priorities of schools and placed games on the top, instead of the bottom. We are our own worst enemies. We want fun and games and let the teacher’s do the rest! I attend my grandchildren’s games and enjoy them, as I did my own children. Both of the older ones do very well in school. Getting back to high school: Do minors have the right to opt out of math classes, instead take an elective course, and blow the time? Incredibly, this may be true! Then who really runs the school? We live in a permissive society. But, it’s past for the adults to take over and demand conformance, respect and certifiable results? Perhaps we will become a subservient nation continuing our slide down a slippery slope of non-performance. As wages decline, and jobs go overseas we will no longer be more than an nation structured on military superiority. Leon R. Albushies Gilford

Aspiration to be respectful was ignored by umpire taunters To the editor, We had the great pleasure to attend a Laconia Muskrats game Friday evening sponsored by Belknap Landscaping. There were hundreds of people there – of all ages. And the game — even though we ended up on the losing end — was exciting right to the last out! Thank you, Muskrats! We cannot thank Belknap Landscaping enough for their great community spirit and support — both of which were in wonderful form Friday evening. Recently, the City Council has been asked to support a series of Community Aspirations in order to REACH our full potential as a civil and caring community. One of those Aspirations is to be respectful of each other, the community, the environment, and ourselves in our words, actions and deeds. Unfortunately, there were a couple of fans at the game who were “over

disrespectful disparaging shouts at one of the umpires. We all know that there are going to be times when we strongly believe that an umpire or referee has made a mistake. However, it is neither necessary — nor is it appropriate (especially at a family event) — for someone to carry on in this manner. These actions do not represent the hundreds of fans who enjoyed the evening and we know this is not the position of the Laconia Muskrats. Hopefully, the individuals who felt it necessary to show their displeasure in such a manner will read this and will consider the impact their actions has on the other fans, the Muskrats, the other teams, our city, and the umpires. Disagreement is a natural and necessary element of democracy — demeaning other people is not. Patrick H. Wood

LETTERS Eventually, public schools will need to improve because of SB-372 To the editor, New Hampshire parents and children should annually celebrate June 27. On that day, the N.H. Legislature enacted SB-372, which helps the children of low and middle income families attend the schools of their choice rather than being trapped in failing and mediocre public schools. On June 27th, 251 Republicans and one Democrat overrode Governor Lynch’s veto of SB-372. The other Democrat legislators joined Governor Lynch in trying to protect the teachers’ unions and the educational establishment which provides Democrats so much campaign support but which has been increasingly failing the children of New Hampshire and the United States for the last 50 years. We have looked to the “experts” to solve America’s public education problems, but their answers are only more spending, more centralized control, and more politically motivated programs. As educational control has moved from local to state to national control, it has done an increasingly poorer job of educating our students. SB-372 helps parents move their children away from failing schools.

Eventually, public schools will need to improve, helping all students, or they will be left with few or no students. The important thing is that New Hampshire students will get better educations and be better prepared to survive in a very competitive world. I cannot think of any legislation that is more beneficial to the citizens of New Hampshire than SB-372. Every supporter of this legislation should be thanked. Every opponent should be replaced. (Links to the roll call votes can be found at: gaits/view/348922) The unions and the educational establishment are not happy that they will have to do a better job and compete for students. They will try to buy politicians to stymie or repeal this legislation. If the citizens of New Hampshire want truly improved education for their children, then they will have to guard this legislation (SB372) against those politicians who are willing to trade off our children’s wellbeing for special interest campaign contributions.

High frequency sound testing will deafen whales and dolphins To the editor, I just sent a postcard to U.S. Navy Sec. Ray Mabus. Address: 1200 Navy Pentagon, Washington, DC, 203501200. On it, I questioned an imminent Navy program involving the use of high frequency underwater sound for testing in Hawaii, the California and Atlantic Coasts, and the Gulf of Mexico. According to Navy estimates it will deafen more than 15,900 whales and dolphins and kill 1,800 more over the next 5 years. Whales and dolphins depend on sound to navigate and live. Ironically, at our recent and very wonderful family reunion, I brought to light the 1980’s cooperative board game my daughters loved, Save the Whales, for the grandchildren to

learn. So I wrote to Sec. Mabus asking if at their house they play his own devised board game, Maim, Deafen, Kill the Whales. Forgive my suspicious nature, but when I looked for info on Sec. Mabus, I thought he was going to be one of these “make-nice” Republican appointees of which Pres. Obama seems fond. But he’s a Democrat. It shows that being pro- or antienvironment crosses party lines. On either side are both mentalities. I suggest that people send their own postcards to Sec. Mabus, asking him to kill the whales or save the whales. Add your “why.” Get your kids and grandkids to participate. Lynn Rudmin Chong Sanbornton

Weirs Beach rebuild will create more damage than many private ones To the editor, I am surprised to learn that the NH DES is looking favorably on a project to recreate an artificial beach of the size of Weirs Beach. Unless jetties are rebuilt as part of the planned work, the new sand will just join the old sand on the bottom of the lake. This is the same agency that will allow a property owner to place exactly NO sand in the lake to rehab a private beach, leading to all the “perched” beaches you see on new construction. Also, if my memory isn’t wrong, the DES went after the town of Belmont

a few years ago for replenishing the town beach. Now, we are going to put thousands of cubic yards of sand on Weirs Beach? Or are they going to dredge it back out of the lake? No damage there. Is this a bit schizophrenic? The Weirs Beach project will create more damage than thousands of lakefront owners with their private beaches. How about a little fairness here? All in the name of economic stimulation. John M. Grobman M.D Sanbornton

Bringing new emergency communication tower on Belknap Mountain online said being held up by dispute between state & contractor BY ROGER AMSDEN LACONIA — Belknap County Sheriff Craig Wiggin says that he is awaiting word from N.H. Department of Safety Commissioner John Barthelemes on whether or not a new communications tower erected on Belknap Mountain will be available for use in the immediate future or whether his department and other agencies will have to make alternative arrangements for upgrading their communications. ‘’The Bureau of Public Works did not sign off on the pad and tower and there is some kind of dispute between them and the private contractor who installed it. We’re being held hostage, as are a number of other agencies, including the Lakes Region Mutual (Fire) Aid Association, which want to use the tower,’’ says Wiggin. He said that Barthelemes was conferring yesterday with other state agencies which have planned to use the tower, including State Police, DRED and the Department of Transportation, to try and resolve the gridlock which is holding up communications upgrades planned by all of the agencies involved. ‘’We don’t know what’s going to happen. There’s a lot of 30-year-old equipment on the old tower that can’t be replaced with modern equipment and if we can’t use the new tower we’re going to have to patch things together to make do with what we have until we can develop another alternative. But there’s not a lot that can be done with the existing tower. It would be like putting the lipstick on a pig,’’ Wiggin told the Belknap County Commissioners at their Wednesday morning meeting. ‘’There’s a huge amount of investment there, but it’s like we’ve got too many shepherds involved who are not talking to each other,’’ said Wiggin. County Administrator Deborah Shackett said that one option if there

is litigation involved would be for the county to fix its equiopment where it presently is and ‘’sued the contractors and the state to get our money back.’’ Wiggin said that Lakes Region Mutual Fire Aid Association Chief Jim Hayes and others ‘’are all very frustrated’’ and feel that the inaction at the state level ‘’is jeopradizing the safety of our people,’’ but doubted the wisdom of putting more money into older equipment. His comments came after commissioners approved acceptance of a grant which will see the county acquire five brand new Motorola radios, valued at $15,000, from a Department of Homeland Security program which channels the funds through the state’s safety agencies. Wiggin said the new radios will be Code 25 compliant which means they meet interoperability requirements for all emergency service providers and will enable all agencies involved in a combined operation to communicate directly with each other. He said that thanks to the relaxing of a requirement on the supplanting of existing equipment with new radios, the department will be able to retain its older radios and continue to use them for emergency situations. A portion of the grant funds were retained by the state, which will use that money to pay for programming of the new radios, leading Shackett to question why the state was requiring the county, and the the other towns and cities in the state which are receiving new radios, ‘’to sign without knowing how much will be retained.’’ Wiggin said state officials were ‘’very transparent’’ about the retained funds and would provide information on how the funds were being used. Some $4-million was allocated statewide for the program and most police departments in the state, with the exceptions of Manchester and Nashua, will be receiving the radios.

NEPOTISM CHARGE from page 2 2009. At the council meeting, she was commended for her job performance. Reardon’s letter thanked Lynch and mentioned working with “tremendous state employees, committed to the mission of the department.” The council did not mention a complaint, but also met in a nonpublic session on a personnel matter. In her statement later, Reardon discussed her responsibility to impose discipline on various department employees. She said some disgruntled department employees had “waged a continuous effort to create divisions within the department and undermine my leadership.” She said they have “distorted the truth and fabricated a story” to cover their own failure to do their jobs in a professional manner. “Although the list of their disciplin-

ary and performance issues is lengthy, confidentiality of personnel matters prevents me from publicly addressing them,” she said. Reardon said the department’s mission — helping New Hampshire’s unemployed workers find jobs to support their families — “is simply too important to be disrupted by my own personal desire to defend myself from these attacks. For this reason, I agreed to step aside and allow the governor to appoint a new commissioner to lead the department.” The Telegraph reported that the complaint also alleges a daughter of Deputy Commissioner Darrell Gates worked in a part-time role for two years before Gates instructed that she be let go to qualify for the same benefits as Reardon’s daughter. Gates did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment Wednesday.

City lays out plan for dealing with any lingering effects of long-closed dump BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — The city last week submitted a plan for further investigating the extent and degree of contamination at the site of an abandoned burn dump and landfill off Frank Bean Road and Morin Road to the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (DES) in anticipation of taking measures to address any risks it may pose to the natural environment or human health. City Manager Scott Myers said yesterday that “we’re waiting for DES to approve our plan.” He said that once the agency accepts the plan a meeting with residents living on and near the site will be held. The site sprawls over nine properties totaling some 75 acres on either side of Frank Bean Road. The burn dump extends over most of four parcels — two residential and two commercial lots — totaling about 3.5 acres, three abutting one another on the west side of Frank Bean Road and the fourth bordered by Frank Bean Road to the west and Morin Road to the east. The dump was operated by the city on privately owned land until 1954 when it was bulldozed flat and covered with gravel. Later the landowner subdivided the property and sold the four lots. The Morin Road landfill, which ceased operation in the early 1960s, comprises some 50 acres divided between two parcels, both owned by the city, and stretches across the town line into Gilford. A work plan prepared for the city by Sovereign Consulting, Inc. of Concord calls for Hager-Richter GeoScience, Inc. of Salem, N.H. to begin a geophysical survey of the site later this summer. The survey aims at determining the depth and extent of residue from the burning operation. The survey, which is expected to be completed in three days, will require the cooperation of the property owners and the suspension of vehicle traffic. By October, GeoSearch Environmental Contractors of Fitchburg, Mass. will begin sinking 15 borings and 12 monitoring wells to depths of 20 feet

on the four parcels where the burn dump operated to collect data on the character and extent of contamination. Sovereign expects to present its report on the burn dump by the end of this year and submit proposals for addressing the contamination by April, 2013. An assessment of the Morin Road Landfill is scheduled to be completed by next summer and remedial actions proposed by next fall and completed in 2014. Similar sites have been secured with a durable cap and measures may be required to monitor the quality groundwater and restore it to state standards. Meanwhile, in February DES assured the owners of the two residential properties, both of which draw their drinking water from dug wells, that tests confirmed that the quality of their water met the standards of the Safe Drinking Water Act. The work plan, which addresses shortcomings DES found in the city’s initial submission, is the most recent step in a process that began in 2004 when the entire site was listed on the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Information System (CERCLIS), a data base maintained by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). An initial inspection of the site was completed by the EPA in December 2009, after which DES asked the city to undertake a complete investigation and propose remedial action. On behalf of the city Terracon Consultants, Inc. of Manchester screened the site and submitted a report to DES in August, 2011. Although the study delineated the extent of waste across the site, DES found that the data it provided insufficient to characterize the risks on the site and requested the city to conduct a more thorough investigation. In particular, the initial study determined the depth to the top of the materials remaining from the burning operation, but not the depth of the materials themselves. Prior investigasee next page

from preceding page tions indicated concentrations of metals and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), byproducts from burning fuels, in excess of standards in the upper one or two feet of soil. Likewise, lead in high concentrations was detected in the upper two feet of soil and ash. Concentrations of lead and zinc in samples collected from the basements of the two residence also exceeded standards. DES directed the city to measure the depth and extent of the ash and waste left by the burning operation. including collecting samples to test for PAHs and metals. In addition, the city was told to install monitoring wells to determine levels of groundwa-

ter contamination. Finally, DES required the city to sample the upper two feet of soil over the full extent of the Morin Road Landfill to measure the concentration of metals, PAHs and PCBs, or polychlorinated biphenyls, which were widely used as coolants in electric motors and transformers until production was banned in 1979. Meanwhile, DES asked the city to take interim steps to minimize exposure to contaminants by covering areas where ash or waste is at the surface, including the soil in the basements of the two homes, as well as covering or paving ash in those areas where erosion was likely to cause contaminants to migrate.

COUNTY from page one city of Laconia at its fair market value was scuttled last month when House and Senate conferees failed to reach agreement on it. The original legislation, House Bill 1205, provided that the property be offered to the city of Laconia for “not less than $10-million” and if the city didn’t buy it at that price that it be offered to the county at fair market value. The city did not bite at $10-million. A recent appraisal by the state set an appraised value of $2.16 million on the property. ‘’We haven’t received anything from the state,’’ said County Commission Chairman Ed Philpot. He said that the commissioners will discuss the property at their next scheduled meeting on July 25. — Roger Amsden

inconsistent with the standards of decency as outlined in the purpose of the towns entertainment ordinance.” Dunn went on to say that he also “learned during the recent hearings that Mr. Drew’s role as the most recent N.H. Liquor License and Town of Gilford Entertainment Permit holder was a complete sham, because he had leased his business to a contracted operator and had no direct role in the hiring of employees or enforcement of the rules.” TheLiquorCommissionfoundthatDrewdidnotallowhisbusinesstobeusedfordrugsales.Thethreeviolationsforwhichhewas found responsible was over serving one patron, having employees consume alcohol while working and providing free drinks. After Dunn’s statement, Bownes returned to the podium. “If you table it, I don’t see a reason to draw swords tonight,” he said. Selectmen said they will revisit the matter when the Liquor Commission issues its final ruling — something all parties agree should be relatively soon.



NIGHT CLUB from page one teams, members of the Gilford Police Department and the Drug Task Force stormed the club, while the Selectboard waited in the parking lot. Three of the dancers were arrested in the raid while the two patrons and two other dancers were arrested on warrants in their homes by cooperating police departments. Drew, who appeared before the board with his attorney David Bownes, told selectmen that he was told by Liquor Enforcement Chief Eddie Edwards that the likely maximum penalty he would receive is a total of $1,000 in fines and a possible three-day suspension of his liquor license. “I know what has occurred is not going to take away my license,” Drew said. “I don’t think it needs to be tabled. Putting it off is hiding it under a pillow.” Bownes clarified Drew’s statements by saying that while the Liquor Commission can do anything it wants, it is likely they would adhere to the recommendations of the state’s chief liquor enforcement officer. The town has no control over Drew’s liquor license — only over the type of entertainment he can have and matters that relate to the town’s building and fire codes. Town ordinances say he must have a valid liquor license to operate. The police chief, the fire chief and the code enforcement officer recommended approvals of the exotic dancing permit but Town Administrator Scott Dunn recommended against it. Reading from a prepared statement, Dunn said his recommendation against exotic dancing comes from what he said he heard during the three days of Liquor Commission hearings. He attended all three. “I learned first-hand about the activities of the performers, which included the sales of illegal drugs to undercover police officers and the consumption of alcoholic beverages while working,” he said. “I find these activities to be

Belknap commissioners want plan for improving coverage of sheriff’s dispatch radio signal BY ROGER AMSDEN FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Belknap County Commissioners, responding to concerns raised over dead spots in the Belknap County Sheriff Department’s radio dispatch signal area, have asked Sheriff Craig Wiggin to present them with a budget which will fix the problems. The action came after a lengthy discussion of the department’s communication system at the Wednesday morning meeting of the commission. ‘’Be careful what you wish for’’ Wiggin told the commissioners, indicating that there would be high costs involved and opposition from communities who do not feel that the dispatch system serves their needs. “We will be coming to you with exactly what we need to do,’’ Wiggin had earlier suggested that the county look at charging a fee for towns which utilize the county’s dispatch center services, saying ‘’here’s what it costs and here’s the fee. Towns that benefit should pay. That’s how other towns do it.’’ ‘’We’ve already had that discussion. We don’t do a la carte with county services,’’ said Commission Chairman Ed Philpot, who led commissioners in pushing Wiggin towards offering a comprehensive solution which might or might not include some kind of arrangement which provided shared dispatching with the Lakes Region Mutual Fire Aid Association. County Administrator Deborah Shackett said there was no need to try and bill towns for special services. ‘’Ask us for the money. Put it in your budget.’’ said Shackett, after Wiggin had said that his current budget doesn’t have enough money to pay for the upgrades which are needed. PRISONS from page 2 four proposals each for the men’s and hybrid prisons and none for a women’s prison. Department of Administrative Services Commissioner Linda Hodgdon told Gov. John Lynch and the council that the proposals received fill 60 boxes, and that it will be MGT’s job to vet the proposals and credentials of the companies that submitted them. “We don’t have the level of expertise to do this,” Hodgdon said. “I am comforted by a fresh set of eyes coming in.” Hodgdon said state officials have stressed to MGT consultants that they should be objective and not enter the project with a preconceived notion on the outcome or a predisposition favoring privatizing New Hampshire’s prison system — which has been a controversial topic. “The recommendation could be that we do nothing,” Hodgdon said.

Wiggin had said that discussions about a shared regional dispatch were on hold until the fate of the building where the mutual fire aid association is housed on the former State School property is decided. “We’re waiting to see what’s happening with the building,’’ said Wiggin. But Philpot said that ‘’waiting for a resolution of the building’s status is not a plan’’ and urged that a plan be prepared and that ‘’waiting for the state is not a strategy.’’ Wiggin said that complaints from Sanbornton about dead areas there will be met at least partially by a new communications tower, being installed at a cost of $10,000 on Pinnacle Hill Road in New Hampton. He said that will add to the county’s dispatching capacity, noting that it has two other tower sites, on Belknap Mountain in Gilford and Prospect Mountain in Alton, as well as a backup tower on Liberty Hill in Gilford. Wiggin said that even if there is a shared facility with Lakes Region Mutual Fire Aid there will still be two distinct operations in the same building. ‘’We can’t have multiple agencies using the same system. Fire departments use ground frequencies to communicate at the site while police go back and forth with dispatch. Sharing space is one thing but they’re totally different operations.’’he said. Commissioners wondered why there no dead spots to speak of in the mutual fire aid system and Wiggin said that their system has 13 repeating sites while he has only four, but that they are spread over a much wider area, which he said have shorter ranges and would not function well with the county’s radio dispatch system.

Corrections Commissioner William Wrenn reassured Councilor Ray Burton — whose district encompasses Berlin and the new state prison there — that prison will continue to be run by the state. Lynch said he had concerns about the condition of the state prison in Concord and did not want to spend good money repairing a prison that should be replaced. Sections of the prison date to the 1870s. Lynch acknowledged that $171,000 for the consultant is a lot of money, but said he thinks the investment is worthwhile in light of the $2 billion the state expects to spend on its prisons over the next 20 years. “It could be that a company builds a prison then leases it back to the state,” Lynch said The state corrections department houses approximately 1,400 male and 120 female inmates. Its annual budget is $102 million.

WALMART from page one the owner of the plaza, said that the plan originated when Hannaford decided to relocate to Winnipesaukee Crossing, the redeveloped shopping center on the opposite side of Lake Shore Road. “It’s a real game changer when Walmart wants to double its size,” he said, adding that for WS Development it presented “an opportunity to remerchandise an aging asset.” The two most controversial aspects of the projects are the elimination of 31,363-square-feet of wetlands — 31,152-square-feet in Laconia and 211-squarefeet in Gilford — and the impact of stormwater runoff on Black Brook, into which the plaza drains. Perrin expressed his appreciation to the Planning Department and the Planning Board for working in collaborating with their counterparts in Gilford, especially to address the drainage system, which flows through both municipalities before emptying into Paugus Bay near the intake to Laconia’s drinking water supply. “This plan is the product of an open and involved process,” Perrin said. Noting that the Gilford Planning Board conditionally approved the site plan last month, he said that “this has been a very successful approval process to date.” He pointed out that the project would provide opportunities for construction workers and expand the city’s property tax base. Tom Sokoloski of Schauer Environmental Consultants, LLC of Loudon described the wetlands as an “isolated upland wetland,” which despite meeting the criteria of a wetland does not function as a wetland. Instead, he said that it was driest area he could recall that qualified as a wetland. He explained that it is atop a hill underlain by hardpan and not con-

nected to any water body or course. It provides no significant capacity to store or filter floodwater, he said, but only offers habitat for wildlife, but not for animals commonly found in wetlands. “It is not a valuable wetland,” he said. Dean Anson, chairman of the Conservation Commission, said that he was not aware that the Planning Board had ever approved such an extensive impact on wetlands. “Removing an entire wetland is an issue for us,” he said, cautioning against allowing this case to serve as a precedent for other developers. “I’d rather get hit in the head with a baseball bat than come in here and ask to do away with wetlands,” Smith declared. However, he said that with this project there was no feasible alternative and doubted it would create a precedent. The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (DES) granted a permit to fill the wetlands, but waived the requirement to mitigate the impact by restoring or creating wetlands oneand-a-half times the size of the affected area, which it agreed was not feasible. Instead, DES required Walmart to make a cash payment of $132,000 to the Aquatic Resource Mitigation Program administered by the agency. Bill Stack of Steven J. Smith & Associates, who engineered the original plaza when it was built 20 years ago, said that the drainage system was designed to minimize the impact on Black Brook. Two detention ponds, one near the entrance on Lake Shore Road and the other near the southeast corner of the property, will both be significantly enlarged. The second pond will have an outlet pipe draining see next page

from preceding page into an apron of rip-rap before flowing to the brook. Because of the capacity of the pond, it will require the approval of the Dam Bureau of DES.The water quality in both ponds will be monitored regularly. Furthermore, Perrin stressed that the owners of Lakeshore Marketplace have committed to “zero phosphorus” and reduced sodium. He said that Belknap Landscaping, the snow removal contractor for the plaza, is a certified by the state as a low sodium operator and will apply 60-percent grit and 40-percent sodium in all but the most severe icing events. Walmart flatly rejected a suggestion originating with the Conservation Commission and endorsed by the Planning Department to install a “green,” or vegetated, roof on the new building. Perrin called it “a deal breaker” and when Jerry Mailloux asked for an explanation said it would add $25, $35 even $50 a square foot to the cost of the roof and between $1-million and $1.5-million to the cost of the project. He said that a green roof would treat a relatively small and the very cleanest portion of the stormwater, emphasizing that the benefits of improving stormwater management ion the site far outweighed those of a green roof. The developer also declined a request to contribute $55,000 toward a study of Black Brook and its watershed. Attorney Rod Dyer questioned whether the board had the statutory authority to require

what he called an “exaction.” However, he continued “that does not mean we are unwilling to contribute” and offered $10,000. “We have an interest in protecting Black Brook,” Perrin added. Anson said that DES advised him that the $132,000 collected from the developer to compensate for the loss of the wetlands could only be designated for specific projects in exceptional circumstances, but asked if Walmart and WS Development would join Laconia and Gilford in asking the agency to earmark the funds for Black Brook. Perrin and Dyer readily agreed. Planning Director Shanna Saunders said that when the construction of Winnipesaukee Crossing led to large amounts of silt being swept into the brook, the Laconia and Gilford planning departments took joint enforcement action. But, she remarked, the Walmart project marked the beginning of closer cooperation between the two municipalities, in partnership with the developer, to address the impact of development on the capacity and quality of Black Brook. Perrin said that WS Development plans to complete its share of the project by next summer then turn the site over to Walmart, which expects to complete construction by July, 2014. Noting that Walmart intended to remain open for business during construction, he looked forward to continued cooperation with the two communities as work proceeds. “We’re far from done,” he said.

ROMNEY from page 2 Four months before the election, Romney’s appearance at the NAACP convention was a direct, aggressive appeal for support from across the political spectrum in what polls show is a close contest. Romney doesn’t expect to win a majority of black voters - 95 percent backed Obama in 2008 - but he’s trying to show independent and swing voters that he’s willing to reach out to diverse audiences, while demonstrating that his campaign and the Republican Party he leads are inclusive. The stakes are high. Romney’s chances in battleground states such as North Carolina, Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania — which have huge numbers of blacks who helped Obama win four years ago — will improve if he can cut into the president’s advantage by persuading black voters to support him or if they stay home on Election Day. As for Romney’s contention that his policies would help “families of any color” more than Obama’s, White House spokesman Jay Carney said the president has pursued ideas that help support and expand the middle class after a devastating recession, and that as part of that black Americans and other minorities have benefited. Obama spoke to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People during the 2008 campaign, as did his Republican opponent that year, Sen. John McCain. The president has dispatched Vice President Joe Biden to address the group on Thursday. Obama is scheduled to address the

National Urban League later this month. For the past year, Romney’s campaign has sought to avoid any overt discussion of race. When the issue has popped up, as with talk in Republican circles about running ads about the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s controversial former pastor, Romney’s team has worked to quickly distance him from the topic. The campaign is mindful both of the sensitivities of Romney being a white man looking to unseat the nation’s first black president and of Romney’s Mormon church’s complicated racial history, having barred men of African descent from the priesthood until 1978. But on Wednesday, Romney confronted the issue more directly, with a bold assertion that he’d be a better president for the black community than one of their own. Within minutes of taking the stage, Romney made note of his opponent’s historic election achievement - and then accused him of not doing enough to help African-American families on everything from family policy to education to health care. “If you understood who I truly am in my heart, and if it were possible to fully communicate what I believe is in the real, enduring best interest of African-American families, you would vote for me for president,” Romney said to murmuring from the crowd. Romney added: “I want you to know that if I did not believe that my policies and my leadership would help families of color - and families of any color more than the policies and leadership of President Obama, I would not be running for president.”

Despite highway budget woes, Sanbornton officials say they ended fiscal year in black BY GAIL OBER


SANBORNTON — Despite an unusually severe mud season, triggered by a week of abnormally high temperatures in March, town officials are confident the town stayed within its 2011-2012 operating budget. Town Administrator Bob Veloski said yesterday that there are still outstanding bills for every town department for the fiscal year that ended June 30. “The selectmen have not transferred any money between departments,” said Veloski. He said the selectmen want to see which departments overspent and which underspent so the budget process can be more transparent. In April, selectmen learned there was a real possibility that the Department of Public Works would overspend its $697,000 annual budget. The overruns were caused largely by the rising costs of diesel fuel and the raw materials needed to work on the town’s

predominantly dirt roads after mud season. Veloski said the final spending for the fiscal year that just ended will be under the $3,650,838 operating budget approved in May of 2011. According to a monthly financial update issued June 18 by Finance Officer Kurt McGee for the 11 months ending May of 2012, the Highway Department had spend 106-percent of its appropriation with diesel fuel and a $20,000 in repairs to DPW equipment listed as key contributors. The same report indicated the Police Department has spent 92-percent of its budget with one month remaining in the fiscal year and the Fire Department had spent 81-percent of its. Overall with one month left in the year, the town had spent 92-percent of total appropriated budget. Selectman Karen Ober said yesterday she is confident the expenditures for the fiscal year just ended will not exceed the total appropriation.

Belmont & Plymouth on list to get community development grants CONCORD — The N.H. Community Development Finance Authority (CDFA) has approved awards to fund three feasibility studies for community development projects around the state, including efforts in Belmont and Plymouth. The planning grants, funded by the federal Community Development Block Grant program, will allow local officials to assess the likelihood of success for these housing and public facilities efforts. “Each year, CDFA sets aside money to fund these planning grants. It removes that first financial barrier for cities and towns, allowing them to gauge the feasibility of implementation and funding,” said Kevin Flynn, Communications Director for the CDFA. “It helps insure communities come back to us with the strongest CDBG proposals possible, ones that benefit the greatest number of low-to-moderate income residents in their area.” The planning grants approved include:

— $12,000 to the Town of Belmont on the behalf of the Lakes Region Cooperative. This engineering study will examine the water, sewer, and electrical infrastructure at the resident-owned manufactured housing community and to provide cost estimates for improvements. Several of the homes have lost service due to the age of the electrical banks and because of the additional electrical loads some of these homes now require due to modern appliance utilization. — $12,000 to the Town of Plymouth on behalf of the Whip-O-Will Cooperative to fund an engineering study. This will examine the condition of the park’s infrastructure, including water, sewer, roads, and electricity, which are showing signs of deterioration. The study would also provide preliminary cost estimates for improvements and identify potential financing packages. The Cooperative needs the study in order to set realistic and manageable objectives for capital improvements to the overall infrastructure.

GROTON — The Fire Department here was toned out just after noon on Tuesday for a smoke investigation on Wilson Drive, off of Rte. 302. It turned out to be a major forest fire heavily involved in thick logging slash which have been recently logged. The cause of the fire is presently unknown.

Fire Warden Wade Johnson, Sr. estimated that between 17 and 20 acres were burned. There were 26 fire department from the area that were involved in battling the blaze and approximately 170 firefighters. The fire was out and the scene cleared about seven hours after the first call went out.

Get Fuzzy

by Chad Carpenter

By Holiday Mathis off of your perch and out of the open cage. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You have the feeling that no one in this world has it easy. Even the privileged ones deal with their own set of issues, and it would be unfair to judge. Your feeling for humanity will be profound. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You like working with a team because knowing that all of your hearts beat for the same thing is a thrill in itself. You’ll get your wish. Everyone will rally together. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll do what it takes to finish the job, which seems like a no-brainer to you. You’d be surprised at how many people don’t, or for some reason can’t, rise to the challenge. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You like people to speak the truth, but since you have a good feeling for such things, you really don’t need them to. Words have a resonance, and that tells you what is accurate. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The world settles up with you in some way. For starters, you’ll receive a wonderful bit of mail, check enclosed. What’s owed to you will be repaid in other ways, as well. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 12). You’ll dive into new ventures. The best projects have humble beginnings. The bare bones way in which things start will be in stark contrast to the lavish, intricate way they end up. You’ll make an important sale in the next 10 weeks and will close another big deal in November. Keep trying to make powerful connections. Aquarius and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 2, 1, 20 and 25.



ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re the warrior of the zodiac, but even when General Chaos and Major Disaster seem to be in charge of your forces, you’re still the commander in chief. Today’s seemingly tough decision will be no match for you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When you see people, you really see them: traits, talents, faults, tendencies. You take in the full breadth of their character immediately -- but it will take many days to process all you’ve seen. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Professional relationships feel a little blurry of late, but remember that you’re the only one in the driver’s seat. Watch that yellow line, and remind others to stay in their appropriate lanes. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ve backtracked long enough. It’s high time you began moving forward. Don’t worry about the thickness of the jungle in front of you; your machete is sharper than you realize. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Talent is more common than you think; persistence and perseverance are the real precious commodities. Remember to stock up on them, and stop comparing yourself to those for whom things seem to come easy. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll study the people around you, curious about their story and interested in why your paths have intersected. That second part you’ll probably keep to yourself, and rightly so, but it will come up sooner or later. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your air-sign nature allows you to fly in your imagination lately, though it may seem to you now that your wings are clipped. Unfold them, stretch them out, and hop

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, July 12, 2012— Page 17

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Thursday, July 12, the 194th day of 2012. There are 172 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 12, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln signed a bill passed by Congress authorizing the Medal of Honor. On this date: In 1543, England’s King Henry VIII married his sixth and last wife, Catherine Parr. In 1690, forces led by William of Orange defeated the army of James II at the Battle of the Boyne in Ireland. In 1812, U.S. forces led by Gen. William Hull invaded Canada during the War of 1812 against Britain. (However, Hull retreated shortly thereafter to Detroit.) In 1909, the House of Representatives joined the Senate in passing the 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, allowing for a federal income tax, and submitted it to the states. (It was declared ratified in February 1913.) In 1912, the silent film “Queen Elizabeth,” starring Sarah Bernhardt, opened in New York. In 1948, the Democratic national convention, which nominated President Harry S. Truman for a second term of office, opened in Philadelphia. In 1962, The Rolling Stones played their firstever gig at The Marquee in London. In 1977, President Jimmy Carter defended Supreme Court limits on government payments for poor women’s abortions, saying, “There are many things in life that are not fair.” In 1984, Democratic presidential candidate Walter F. Mondale announced he’d chosen U.S. Rep. Geraldine A. Ferraro of New York to be his running-mate; Ferraro was the first woman to run for vice president on a major-party ticket. In 1991, a Japanese professor (Hitoshi Igarashi) who had translated Salman Rushdie’s “The Satanic Verses” was found stabbed to death, nine days after the novel’s Italian translator was attacked in Milan. In 2001, Abner Louima, the Haitian immigrant tortured in a New York City police station, agreed to an $8.7 million settlement with the city and its police union. One year ago: President Barack Obama awarded the Medal of Honor to Sgt. 1st Class Leroy Arthur Petry, who’d lost his right hand grabbing a live grenade to save his comrades in Afghanistan.

WOLFEBORO — Fans of the popular medical drama television show “House” know that it is based on Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories. But they may not be aware of how important the medical profession was to the first great detective in solving his mysteries. Doyle was himself a doctor, and he modeled Holmes on his medical school professor Dr. Joseph Bell. Holmes’s detection is based on medical diagnostics, and mystery writing became popular just as modern medicine was becoming established.

The Wolfeboro Public Library continues its Sherlock in July theme when it presents speaker James Krasner, and his program “Dr. Sherlock Holmes” on Thursday, July 19, 7 p.m. in the library meeting room. By examining Sherlock Holmes’s mystery-solving in the context of Doyle’s medical writings, this talk offers insights into the relationship between doctors and detectives. James Krasner is a professor of English at UNH. His specialty is British Victorian Literature; he also teaches the Bible as Literature and Animals in Literature. His research focuses on Victorian literature, and on the field of Medical Humanities, which uses literary analysis to understand the relationship between doctors, patients and caregivers. His book, Home Bodies: Tangible Experience in Domestic Space, addresses the importance of the sense of touch to our lives at home. The library is able to bring Prof. Krasner’s program “Dr. Sherlock Holmes” to Wolfeboro courtesy of the UNH Speakers Bureau. Wolfeboro Public Library’s programs are free and open to all. For more information call 569-2428 or visit

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, July 12, 2012— Page 19


Dear Annie: My mother and I have had a poor relationship for years. She is self-absorbed, demanding and consistently hurtful. She seems to find great amusement in upsetting me and takes every opportunity to do so. On one occasion, I was talking to my family about an individual whom I particularly admired, and my mother interrupted me to explain that I only knew about him because “they mentioned him on a television show.” When I told her how embarrassing that was for me, she retorted, “It was a joke, and if you were offended, that’s your problem.” On another occasion, I had just completed my college degree and was quietly showing my diploma at a family gathering. My mother shouted repeatedly that she needed everyone’s attention and finally said, “My son just got his degree.” Not only did she again embarrass me, but her behavior stole my thunder, and she completely ignored my pleading for her to stop shouting. This kind of behavior is typical of her, and I am tired of it. I have tried to discuss it with her, and she refuses to accept that she has done anything wrong. I finally decided to sever all contact. I have no desire to associate with someone who tries so hard to hurt me and make me feel small. The problem is that the rest of my family berates me for being “mean” to her. They expect me to maintain this destructive relationship. How can I explain to them how horribly she treats me? -- Frustrated and Alone in Indianapolis, Ind. Dear Indianapolis: We can see that your mother is difficult, but instead of cutting her off and being the family black sheep, we recommend finding a better way to deal with her. You seem very sensitive to her comments and behavior. The best way to convince her to treat you better is to respond differently. Get some counseling and work on this. If you can

change the dynamic between you, you will be less resentful and hurt. Dear Annie: My older sister, “Lilly,” is always taking my things without permission. She uses my socks, hairdryer and makeup. She does this with everyone in the family. She even borrows my parents’ car without asking. Her latest fixation is my iPod. Sometimes, she doesn’t return it until I demand that she give it back. I started hiding it, forcing her to ask before taking it. Frankly, I don’t want her to use it at all because I don’t trust her to return it. But she makes me feel so guilty that I end up giving it to her anyway. Of course, Lilly has her own iPod, but she doesn’t like to spend money on new songs. My parents have addressed it, but nothing changes. Lilly says she means to ask permission, but either forgets or we aren’t around. Annie, I’ve had enough. What can I do? -- Better To Ask Permission than Forgiveness Dear Better: Lilly needs to be “trained.” Give her some ground rules. If she returns your iPod in a timely manner, you can trust her to borrow it again. However, if she takes it without permission or won’t give it back until you demand it, tell her it is off-limits the next time -- and mean it. If you keep falling for the guilt trip, you have no one else to blame. Dear Annie: This is for “Kentucky,” whose friend invited her to a wedding in order to baby-sit the kids. When my sister put me at the kids’ table for her (third) marriage, saying there “wasn’t enough room” for me to sit with the adult relatives, it was clear where I stood in the family pecking order. “Kentucky” should either decline the invitation or respond graciously that she would prefer to be with the adults during the event. The bride’s response will let her know whether it’s a friendship worth keeping. -- Kentucky Too
