Bedtime burglar snatches pocketbook from Briarcrest home THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

Weirs Drive-In Theater

laCONIa, N.H.


LACONIA — City police logs note three more home burglaries yesterday — two in the Briarcrest section of town and one on Fairview Street. This would bring to 14 the number of home burglaries recorded by the city in the past

two weeks although it is not known if they are all related. One of the victims of a Briarcrest burglary said it appeared her door was jimmied and only money was taken. She said was sleeping and woke at 3 a.m. — something she rarely does. “I don’t know why I woke up,”

she said. “I don’t usually.” She said she never realized what happened up after she had been awake for about three hours. Unable to fall asleep after awakening, she said she made breakfast at 4 a.m. and began to get some things ready for an event she was attending over

the weekend. “My car was all loaded and I went to find my pocketbook,” she said. At first she said she thought she had misplaced it and actually called one of the places she had been during the day to see if she had dropped or forgotten it. see BurGLar page 8

Experts think Casey Anthony should go to a safe house

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — When Casey Anthony is released from jail Sunday, it will probably be in the middle of the night. If her lawyers are smart, security experts say, they will arrange for several SUVs with tinted windows to pull up to the Orange County Jail. Then they will bundle her into one of them and whisk her away to a safe house, where she will be protected by bodyguards for days, if not weeks. “I’d tell her to go to a big house in the middle of nowhere,” said Dallas-based security expert Stuart Diamond, who has worked for celebrities and federal agencies. “That would be the safest thing for her. It’s more of an effort for someone to really follow through on a threat.” Online and elsewhere, Anthony has been vilified, many believing she got away with murder. Some have wished the same fate on her that prosecutors say befell her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. Anthony’s legal team see CASEY page 28

Obama pushes for ‘something big’ to come from debt talks WASHINGTON (AP) — Struggling to avert an unprecedented national default, congressional leaders jettisoned negotiations on a sweeping deficit-reduction package Friday despite a plea from President Barack Obama to “do something big” to stabilize America’s finances. Instead, lawmakers embarked on competing fallback plans as a critical Aug. 2 deadline neared, a House Republican version given little chance of success, even by some supporters, and a bipartisan Senate approach holding out more promise to avert what Obama called financial “Armageddon.”. Late Friday, the Treasury Department announced it was resorting to the final

steps in an unusual series designed to avoid exceeding the current $14.3 trillion debt limit. Numerous officials have cautioned that a default will occur if the limit is not increased by Aug. 2, warning also of a calamitous effect on a national economy struggling to recover from the worst recession in decades.. At the behest of conservatives, House Republicans announced plans to vote next week on legislation to permit more borrowing automatically if Congress approves a balanced-budget constitutional amendment. Senate approval of that amendment seemed extremely unlikely in a vote set for the next few days.

At the same time, Senate leaders from both parties worked on their own fallback measure that would allow Obama to raise the debt limit without a prior vote by lawmakers, discussions that now have expanded to include House officials and top White House aides. That plan was likely to include limits on spending across thousands of government programs, and possibly a down payment on cuts, as well. As part of that proposal, a panel of lawmakers would recommend cuts in benefits programs by the end of the year, with the House and Senate required to vote yes-orsee OBAMA page 11

Whitey Bulger’s girlfriend to remain jailed without bail

BOSTON (AP) — A federal judge on Friday ordered the longtime girlfriend of former Boston crime boss James “Whitey” Bulger to remain in custody without bail while she awaits trial on allegations that she helped him evade capture for more than 16 years. U.S. Magistrate Judge Jennifer Boal’s order came two days after an attorney for Catherine Greig said she would voluntarily remain in custody while he gathers more information to support his request that she be granted bail and placed under electronic monitoring. Bulger and Greig were arrested last month in Santa Monica, Calif. Bulger is charged with participating in 19 murders. Greig is charged with harboring and concealing a fugitive. Bulger has pleaded not guilty. Greig has sought to be released on bail in the custody of her twin sister. The judge ordered that Greig be detained separate from convicts or those appealing their sentences. The suspect should also be given reasonable opportunity for private consultations with her attorney, according to the court order. “This order is without prejudice to the defendant filing a motion to consider the issue of pretrial detention,” Boal said in her order of voluntary detention. Greig’s bail hearing on Wednesday sparked passionate arguments from prosecutors, her attorneys and victims of Bulger’s alleged crimes. Prosecutors portrayed Greig as an eager partner to Bulger, willingly going on the run with him and actively helping him elude authorities for more than 16 years. They also argued that Greig could easily flee again if she is released on bail. Defense attorney Kevin Reddington questioned an FBI agent who acknowledged that members of a family who befriended the couple in Grand Isle, La., during their first two years as fugitives said Bulger was harsh and controlling, and treated Greig like a servant. Reddington argued that when Greig left Boston with Bulger in 1995, he had only been charged with extortion in a racketeering indictment. The murder allegations were included in a separate racketeering indictment four years later. Bulger’s former top lieutenant, Kevin Weeks, called as a witness by Greig’s lawyer, said Greig was not involved in Bulger’s criminal enterprises, which allegedly included drugs, loan-sharking and extortion.

Lynch directs agencies to prep for layoffs CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire Gov. John Lynch directed state agency heads Friday to develop contingency plans to lay off potentially hundreds of state workers if negotiations with their union fail to produce $50 million in savings. Lynch’s budget director John Beardmore requested responses by Aug. 8. He said implementation potentially would be Sept. 8. The layoffs would be in addition to an as-yet unknown total number of layoffs from budget cuts. The governor’s office said so far they know of about 130 executive branch layoffs from budget cuts, but more are likely as agencies comply with cuts whose amounts were specified, but not the programs to be cut. The state budget requires Lynch to save $50 million in personnel costs with $20 million coming from state tax funded accounts. The budget requires that an agreement with the union must implement the savings by Sept. 1 or the governor must cut labor costs by Dec. 1. Lynch hopes to achieve the savings through negotiations with unions representing the workers but no deals have been reached yet. “We’ve sent the letter to department heads so they can take the proper steps,” said Lynch spokesman Colin Manning. “We’re still working with the unions so we can avoid further layoffs.” State Employees’ Association President Diana Lacey said Friday the sides have tentatively agreed to ways to save the $50 million, but have no agreement on union job security issues. She said they have

about a month to work out a deal to avoid layoffs. The SEA represents most of New Hampshire’s approximately 11,000 employees. “We’ve addressed the $50 million and now we’re hoping the governor’s team will pay much-needed attention to the employees’ priorities,” said Lacey. She declined to discuss the specifics of the tentative agreements on the $50 million but said it involved wages and benefits. Lynch had made it clear in his February budget address that he wanted the next contract with the workers to include changes in health benefits to save money. Lacey said the SEA addressed that priority but now wants Lynch to include workers’ rights provisions in the contract, such as seniority rights and access to health care after being laid off. She said the Republican-controlled Legislature overrode longstanding personnel rules in the budget package to limit workers’ rights when it eliminated 1,100 vacant positions and laid off workers. “They made an issue that they have no regard for what’s in personnel rules, but they do have regard for what’s in the contract,” she said. Lacey said the union wants to put those rules in the contract to protect them from being suspended again. Two years ago, lawmakers required Lynch to cut $25 million in labor costs.

New Hampshire toughens ban on out-of-state firewood DURHAM (AP) — New Hampshire is strengthening a ban on out-of-state firewood because of concern over non-native invasive insects. Two years ago, a joint state-federal regulation restricted firewood movement on state reservation lands and national forest lands within New Hampshire, which includes campgrounds. The new ban starting Monday expands those restrictions to prohibit out-of-state firewood movement to all lands in New Hampshire. Only approved heat-treated firewood that’s properly packaged and labeled or firewood transported with a compliance agreement from select counties in Maine, Vermont and Massachusetts may enter the state. Pre-approved counties in Maine are Franklin, Oxford, Androscoggin, Cumberland, and York. All counties in Vermont are approved. In Massachusetts, Essex, Middlesex and Franklin counties are

approved. Forest officials are concerned about importing insects such as the emerald ash borer and the Asian long-horned beetle, which have harmed trees in other states. In some cases, infestations have been attributed to the movement of camp firewood. More than half of all forests in New Hampshire are susceptible to the insects. “It’s surprising how much and how far people are willing to transport firewood,” said New Hampshire Forest Entomologist Kyle Lombard. “We surveyed firewood use at campgrounds and found that 40 percent of the out-of-state campers brought it from home. Many of those folks were from as far away as Florida, North Carolina and California. We have seen that every stick of firewood taken from these campers had insects, to the tune of about 30 per piece.” Violators of the ban are subject to a fine.

Stock narrowly miss having U.S. & allies formally recognize Libya rebels the Libyan strongman and certain members of his ISTANBUL (AP) — The United States and more worst week of the year family must go. than 30 other nations on Friday formally recog-

NEW YORK CITY (AP) — A late rally Friday prevented the stock market from having its worst week in nearly a year. Investors seemed to largely ignore the ongoing debate in Washington over raising the country’s borrowing limit. Troubling questions over Europe’s financial health and manufacturing in the U.S. weighed down stock prices for much of the day, overwhelming a very strong earnings report from Google Inc. Google jumped nearly 13 percent, the most of any stock in the Standard and Poor’s 500 index, after the company said its revenue hit a record last quarter. Google’s earnings pushed tech stocks in the S&P index broadly higher. Microsoft Corp. and Cisco Systems Inc. each gained 1 percent. Worries about Europe and weak factory output in the U.S. have kept traders’ expectations and stock prices relatively low since early this spring, said Ryan Detrick, senior technical strategist Schaeffer’s Investment Research. If corporate earnings remain strong and Europe stabilizes, he said, stocks might rally in the second half of the year. That happened last year, after fears about Europe held the stock market back all summer. “With all the talk about European debt and the U.S. issues, the fact that earnings are coming in pretty strong is a good sign,” Detrick said. “Once those issues work their way through the system, long-term growth is going to come from earnings.” Most investors believe a deal to raise the country’s debt ceiling will be reached before the Aug. 2 deadline. Standard & Poor’s said Thursday there is a 50 percent chance it will downgrade the government’s triple-A rating within three months because of the impasse. Moody’s made a similar warning on Wednesday. Even so, there has been little visible progress in negotiations between President Barack Obama and Congressional Republicans. see next page

nized Libya’s main opposition group as the country’s legitimate government, giving the rebel movement a major boost. The decision, which declared Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi’s regime no longer legitimate, gives his foes greater credibility and will potentially free up billions in cash that the rebels fighting Libyan forces urgently need. The front lines in the Libyan civil war have largely stagnated since the popular uprising seeking to oust Gadhafi broke out in February. Rebels, backed by NATO’s air force bombings, control much of the country’s east and pockets in the west. But Gadhafi controls the rest from his stronghold in Tripoli, the capital. Foreign ministers and other representatives of the so-called Contact Group on Libya said in a statement Friday that the “Gadhafi regime no longer has any legitimate authority in Libya.” They said

“The Contact Group has sent an unequivocal message to Gadhafi: that he has no legitimacy and there is no future for Libya with him in power. He must go and go now,” said British Foreign Secretary William Hague. The nations said they would deal with Libya’s main opposition group — the National Transitional Council, or NTC — as “the legitimate governing authority in Libya” until an interim authority is in place that will organize free and fair elections. In addition to the U.S., the 32-nation Contact Group on Libya includes members of NATO, the European Union and the Arab League. Diplomatic recognition of the foes of Gadafi means that the U.S. will soon be able to fund the opposition with some of the more than $30 billion in Gahdafiregime assets that are frozen in American banks. Other countries holding billions more in such assets will be able to do the same.

CHICAGO (AP) — A liberal group upset over potential cuts to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security delivered pledges Friday to President Barack Obama’s national campaign headquarters threatening to pull its support. About a dozen people representing the Progressive Change Campaign Committee delivered what they said were 200,000 pledges from people who will refuse to donate or volunteer for Obama’s re-election campaign if he cuts the entitlement programs. “It’s not a question of who they’re going to support for president, they’re going to vote for Barack Obama. It’s a question of where their time and money is going to go,” spokesman T. Neil Sroka said. Obama has been taking heat from the left over the debt ceiling negotiations, in which he has been willing to target the long-standing programs. His

approach is certain to sit better with independent voters, many of whom have told pollsters they want Washington politicians to work together to solve the big problems. Sroka said the 200,000 people represent more than $17 million in donations to Obama’s campaign in 2008 and about 2.6 million volunteer hours. Protester Mary Ellen Croteau, 61, of Chicago said she’s even ready to find someone else to support if Obama cuts Medicare and Social Security. “I don’t know who I’m going to vote for yet because there doesn’t seem to be too many people on the horizon, but I will vote for someone whether it’s a Green candidate, whether it’s a communist, I don’t care. Somebody who’s going to stand up for people,” Croteau said. Sroka later said she was not speaking on behalf of the group.

natural-resource giant BHP Billiton Ltd. said it would buy Petrohawk Energy Corp. for $12.1 billion, feeding speculation about which company might be the next takeover target. BHP was attracted to the long-term value of Petrohawk’s U.S. natural gas reserves. Chesapeake Energy Corp., Cabot Oil & Gas Corp and Pioneer Natural Resources Co. each rose 10 percent. Natural gas prices rose 3.7 percent. Mattel Inc. rose nearly 2 percent after the company said its income jumped 56 percent in the second quarter, helped by strong demand for Barbie and “Cars 2” toys. Clorox Co. jumped 9 percent after billionaire investor Carl Icahn offered to take the company private in a deal that values the household products company at $10.2 billion.

U.S. jobs machine no longer runs on autopilot So where are the jobs? Job creation has basically flattened over the past two months — very bad news, as unemployment exceeds 9-percent. The Democrats’ economic stimulus was inadequate, and it’s mostly over. And the Republicans’ prescription of more tax cuts is largely hogwash, given already historically low tax rates and the fact that American corporations are already sitting on mountains of cash and not using the money to hire Americans. The years following the George W. Bush tax cuts were the worst for job growth in a long time. Only 3-million jobs were created in the eight Bush years, versus 23.1 million during the Clinton administration. In fairness to George W., other trends hurting U.S. job creation were accelerating and — President Obama’s critics take note — continue today. Globalization encourages U.S. companies to lay off Americans and find cheaper labor in other countries. And automation lets U.S. factories make the same amount of stuff with far fewer people. These processes can’t be stopped. But Germany and other highwage countries are doing just fine employment-wise, because they pay scrupulous attention to preparing young people for the jobs there are. The Bush years were pretty dismal in that respect, coasting on a housing bubble that wove an illusion of prosperity. Real estate speculation pushed house prices higher, egging people to buy more expensive real estate on borrowed money. As interest rates were kept low, big mortgages went flying out the door. The result was jobs selling houses, building houses and lending for houses. Homebuyers cashed out their fat equity and took the money to the mall, creating new positions in retailing and building new retailing. When the music stopped, those jobs vanished. Disheartening now is how little attention Obama has paid to preparing the most vulnerable young workers, those without college degrees, for decent jobs. For instance, the administration seeks to cut 20-percent out of vocational

and technical education in high schools and community colleges. Education Secretary Arne Duncan will argue that Obama wants to hike overall education spending by 11-percent: Money for vocational training is being sacrificed to help more people go to college, said to be the ticket for employment in the 21st century. Some further argue that rapid changes in required job skills will make much vocational and technical training outmoded. But there is more to it than that. Currently, two out of three American kids don’t go to college. Some are quite smart but not suited for academics. Vocational training keeps many would-be dropouts in high school. It gets them a job with middle-class wages. And if that job goes away, what we have left is a mature worker with a record of employment, not some idle 30-something living with his mother. In any case, globalization hits college grads, as well. Ask any highly trained computer programmer whose job just moved to India or Romania. America must be the land of third and fourth chances. Workers whose practical training in electronics becomes outdated can later attain another technical skill or pursue a college education. Or a college grad might want to learn a building trade. (I know one who runs a very successful carpentry shop.) So we should stop thinking about vocational training and college as two separate paths veering off in entirely different directions. But rather than alter that perception, the Obama administration seems to be enforcing it. Clearly, the great American job machine no longer goes on automatic pilot. Government must help keep it running through these tough times — and ensure that Americans are ready for 21st century tasks. This is one kind of spending we dare not cut.

Thank you! You are what makes New Hampshire wonderful To the editor, For over 50 years my dream was to live in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. Not only because of family ties and stunning scenery but because the people impressed me. My dream of living here became a reality last November and my impression of honest, caring people was brought swiftly to may attention today. In my haste, I left my pocketbook in a cart in the Belknap Mall. Calls to Shaw’s and CVS were received politely and with true con-

lot. Laconia’s police dispatcher and the Belmont Police answering service were also concerned and helpful. Then the unbelievable happened! Scott McKay of Winnisquam phoned saying, “I found your pocketbook in Shaw’s parking lot and I want to return it to you. Please give me directions to your home.” You can imagine my emotions! My thanks to Scott McKay and all the others whose names I do not remember. You are what makes N.H. wonderful! Mary Lou Lavelle

LETTERS Our U.S. birth rate without illegal aliens is 1.7 — hello Greece! To the editor, Are you concerned yet? Pat Buchanan’s column in the Friday edition of The Daily Sun was excellent. His numbers and identification of the birth dearth in Greece, and its resulting problems, should alarm everyone. The information he provided gave us an accurate picture of what is happening in the entire western world; and the United States is not immune. Some more scary numbers. China allows only one baby per family. That’s made even sadder because a disproportionate number of girl babies are aborted than are boys. Herbert Meyer has indicated that within a generation or two, China will have 75-million men, for whom there are no women in China, sitting on the border of Russia. Russia, on the other hand, has a birth rate of only 1.1 children per family, because of abortion and alcoholism. The Russian population of about 130-million is being cut in half every generation and while China’s population is declining, they are starting from a population base of over 1.3-billion. This story plays out all across Europe because the people in those countries opted for the “good life”, lots of vacation, early retirement, the lar-

gesse of the government to meet their every need, and high rates of abortion. Because of those low birth rates, most European countries have allowed immigrants to come in to fill the jobs unfilled because of their shrinking native population. Those immigrants, mainly from middle-eastern, Muslim countries, are accomplishing two things. First, they are demanding all the social service and benefits accorded to the native population of their host countries. Next, they are out-birthing the native population by three or four to one. An Imam in Norway made the statement that all the Muslims need to do is be patient, as they will be the majority population in a relatively short time, and therefore can democratically rule and impose the laws that they want. By the way, the birth rate in the United States is two children per family. However, if the birth rate of illegal aliens is removed from the calculation, the number drops to 1.7, not enough to sustain the native population. If you’re not concerned, you’re not paying attention. Bob Meade Laconia

Republicans do understand where jobs actually come from To the editor, Cathy Merwin’s interesting letter in The Daily Sun on July 14 is seriously flawed by one misunderstanding she has. Corporations hire and PAY people to produce goods or services, and ALL that pay IS taxed by the government in withholding tax AND Social Security TAX (which is your saving account for the future). Any net income the corporation earns is then distributed to the shareholders who put up the money to cover all costs of organizing and running it. Those shareholders then must pay tax on the dividend income. Thus, up to that point, ALL income the company has created IS taxed. But then, in a scheme of double taxation, the already taxed income of the shareholders is TAXED AGAIN as corporate income tax! That tax undermines ability to hire more people, and where possible, drives the production

offshore to India, China, etc. Democrats seem incapable of understanding that, so in their socialistic urge to grab more taxes to distribute to their special few, they attack corporations for ever more taxes. Republicans understand where jobs actually come from, so try to protect those double taxed and thus keep jobs here in America. With that understanding, the rest of her letter falls apart. Her last paragraph accurately describes those in Congress, who regularly increase their pay and benefits for always less work, and increase their staff sizes, mostly to work on reelection, while the needs of the country are ignored. Top managers of businesses can’t do that, so must stay productive. Jack Stephenson Gilford

LETTERS U.S. budget can be balanced by taking freeloaders off Social Security

The only thing different is the name of crook who is in office

To the editor, Isn’t eminent domain wonderful. If the government doesn’t have enough money to pay its bills, the chief fool in charge says go after the Social Security bank. Since I personally did NOT vote for the golden voice in charge, and I did NOT vote for the other idiots backing up his wishes, his “it’s time for change” program should be put into action. You can look up how all his foolish pals voted to take from Peter (SS) to pay Paul, should come with a life sentence of no big retirement benifit after being put out of office. To those of you who have any memory at all, I ask you to just remember how the State of New Hampshire and its crooks in charge wanted to steal the money put into an account by doctors to cover malpractice expenses suits by other crooks wanting a free ride. What the hell happened to America? Did you know that the government could balance the budget simply by taking the freeloaders off Social Security who have never paid a cent into the system and placing them on the state welfare rolls. One only has to look back as far as the last fool in charge who gave our Social Security to any person not born here in this country and never paid a cent into Social Security. I will point out, that

To the editor, What is wrong with our country today? EVERYTHING! Washington cannot come to any agreement on what to do about the economy. First of all, we need to cut the governments pay and put them on the same health care as us. Then see how fast this works in cleaning up the mess they have created. People who scam other people — let’s take their money and put it towards the deficit. Let all perverts and prisoners go to war. Boy! Would we be saving a bundle of money. No more help for illegal aliens and those who never want to work and are sucking up the system dry. We would save a lot of money if only some of these things would be in place. Stop giving aid to countries that hate us. Stop bringing all the refugees from other countries then when they come they want to bring the rest of the mob here to the U.S.A. Why are we the policeman to the whole world? Should charity not begin here with the American people? We are getting mashed by our so-called government that cares nothing about us. When is their going to be a revolution here in America to

if you paid into Social Security, but did not work 40 quarters, you are not entitled to collect your benefits, but some SOB coming to this country is made to believe that the streets really are paved in gold and can have your benefits. Perhaps, people like Anna D. and Jack S. could get out there and start a petition to make a change on our officials, beginning with taking away their hefty hefty, hefty raises that I personally did not give them the right to give themselves. When you get some reliable taxpayers to sign these petitions to take back the government and give it back to the people, by the people then will come the change. When one looks back 50 years and sees JFK serving the people by not accepting any money as president, look at all the millionaires who could do the same. Until such time as we can get honest people in charge, individual states MUST pay their own senators and congressmen a set fee, with stipulation that they MAY NOT give themselves any pay raises. Raises must be approves by the taxpaying citizens. As for petitions, I also will have one on me to be signed by taxpayers. Bev Buker Gilford

Here is a ‘shout out’ to my favorite insurance agent, Mike Testa To the editor, How many of you have the privilege of having Mike Testa as your State Farm agent? I know I do! Mike is not just an insurance sales man, he is a genuine person who cares about each and every one of his customers right down to the children! Recently State Farm has partnered up with the Disney flick “Cars 2”, just about every kids favorite movie. He went out of his way to order “Cars 2” promo items for my children and several others in the community! How many businesses that we do business with on a daily basis do that? Not too many these days. I keep up with Mike

on Facebook on his Mike Testa-State Farm Agent page, he is always giving “shout outs” to local people that do work for him, and you can always look to his page for something to do over the weekend. On Fridays he always posts what is going on in the Lakes Region from events, to bands and much more. Forget about advertising for himself, he is advertising for all of you! All I can say is Mike you are a great guy and I am pleased to tell everyone that you are my families insurance agent! So Mike, here is my “shout out” to you! Roslyn Dutile Laconia

Change we need is to trust in God & put people who love him in office To the editor, Time for a change? There are two kinds of a change: No. 1, a change for the better, or No. 2, a change for the worse. Mr. Obama became our president telling us it’s time for a change and time has proved it was terrible change. Our nation is in debt, owing billions of dollars to China and other nations who don’t believe in our God and Savior. What a shame. No wonder millions are jobless. Even nature has gone wild with floods, untamed fires, killer storms, etc. But listen folks, it’s still not too late

to pray and repent as a nation to God, for mercy and national revival. The change we need is to trust in God and put only people who love God and country in office. Obama and his people must be replaced and we must change all the evil laws that were passed by evil-minded men; for example, gay marriage and taking God out of schools and teaching our children we evolved from apes. No wonder we have such trouble. Friends, vote for right, not wrong. Pray about your choice. God bless the U.S.A. William “Liam” McCoy Meredith

I stumbled into using WD-40 on bees & hornets & it worked really well To the editor, Last summer I had bees and hornets flying up under the siding on my house. The spot was by the steps that go into the house. It was fearsome! I bought three cans of fee and hornet spray and sprayed it on the spot two or three times a day for 2 weeks. It hardly bothered them!

and I had a can of WD-40 lubricant in my hand and I sprayed them. They immediately started to drop! I also had them in my basement and I sprayed the top of my cellar wall. Result: They all disappeared in one day! Maybe we should buy stock in WD-40. Please pass this along. Dick Perley

stop all this crap the government is throwing down our throats? How are people going to make it if they cut Medicare and Social Security and at the same time raise taxes? We need to protest against all these idiots that NEVER keep their promise. Are we that stupid to let all this happen? Obama needs to go and so do the others that are telling us they are going to be different. The only thing different is the name of the crook who is in office. Don’t tell me there is no other way to cut spending other then cut Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. What about all the perks they have. Where are the cuts their? The illegals are sucking us dry and the liberals are doing this. All the military that are still in other countries since World Wars I and II should be watching our borders. No one else should come into the U.S.A. until we fix are own mess. It starts with Washington. Bring back the morals and prayer back into our lives. In case some of you do not know this that JESUS CHRIST is our creator. Anna DeRose Moultonborough

Treasure sunny days for picnics & rambling through the state To the editor, Thursday, July 7 was a beautiful summer day, lovely fluffy clouds in the sky; a good day for a ride in the country. Starting out with a call to my brother-in-law to try to get him to take a ride in my new car but he’d have nothing of it. Did get him to laugh some during the conversation. However, not letting this change my way of thinking, I called a good friend. Needing to take a ride to Franklin to Benson Auto for a small procedure for my car, we started out, stopping to buy a mocha caramel iced coffee at Dunkin’ Donuts in Tilton. Then we decided to stop at Cross Mill Road in Northfield to visit my sister-inlaw and her husband at their lovely farm. Sitting under the shady tree, we watched him mow the large lawn near their home. The rest of the fields need haying. They are just having a difficult time hiring someone to hay their

fields. It was a lovely respite just to sit under the tree, a slight breeze and the smell of new mowed grass prevailing. Not realizing time was slipping by so quickly, we ended our stay to get to Benson’s in Franklin before they closed for the day. After a short time to fix the necessary on my car, we decided to take the country roads back to Winnisquam. Taking Route 127 our of Franklin, we went by the Franklin Dam, soon taking a quick right turn onto a narrow, paved country road, eventually arriving at a “no trespassing” sign. Recalling recent news articles, we decided to turn around and go back to Route 127. Shortly after passing the Sanbornton Baptist Church, where we have attended their strawberry shortcake festival several times, we came to Perley Hill Road, which led us to see next page

Former Tilton doctor cited for 21 more violations & fined another $87,900 By Ray DuckleR CONCORD MONITOR

TILTON — The State Board of Medicine added to its critical review of a Tilton doctor yesterday, announcing another $87,900 in fines for professional misconduct while she practiced at the Riverfront Medical Group. Dr. Susan Hare, already fined thousands of dollars and banned from practicing medicine for previous ethics issues, was cited for an additional 21 violations. Among them, the board found medical records had been discarded by Hare in at least one trash bag near Riverfront last February, two days after the facility closed. “This pile was accessible to anyone,” the report read, adding that documents included “patients’ names and dates of birth in plain sight. These privileged patients’ medical records are replete with information that, if found by a third party, would have constituted an invasion of these patients’ privacy.” Elsewhere, the board found, Hare failed to alert patients and staff of the possibility of her practice’s closure, failed to provide patient records within 30 days of the patients’ request, failed to comply with board subpoenas and failed to respond to various inquiries by the board. Attempts to reach Hare by email were unsuccessful. Hare was fined $21,000, or $1,000 for each of the PRESS from page 2 phones, but testified to a parliamentary committee in 2009 that he had seen no evidence abuses had spread beyond a single jailed reporter, Clive Goodman. Hinton said Friday that “the pain caused to innocent people (by hacking) is unimaginable.” “That I was ignorant of what apparently happened is irrelevant, and in the circumstances I feel it is proper for me to resign from News Corp. and apologize to those hurt by the actions of News of the World,” he said. Murdoch said he accepted Hinton’s resignation with “much sadness.” It capped a difficult week for the embattled mogul. Just a day after asserting that News Corp. had made only “minor mistakes,” Murdoch issued an apology to run in Britain’s national newspapers for “serious wrongdoing” by the News of the World, which he shut down last week amid allegations of large-scale illegal hacking by its staff. “We are sorry for the serious wrongdoing that occurred. We are deeply sorry for the hurt suffered by the individuals affected. We regret not acting faster to sort things out,” said the full-page ad, signed by Murdoch and due to run in Saturday’s editions of Britain’s main national newspapers. Murdoch promised “further concrete steps to resolve these issues and make amends for the damage they have caused.” Murdoch also met the family of murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler, whose phone was hacked by the News of the World in 2002. The revelation that journalists had accessed her phone in search of scoops inflamed the long-simmering scandal about illegal eavesdropping by the newspaper. The 80-year-old mogul emerged from the meeting from preceding page Route 132, Sanbornton Square and Hunkins Pond Road. This, of course, took us right to the Swain Farm, one of the last remaining, fully-functioning dairy farms in the state. As we entered their driveway, going around the house, we spotted a man loading large logs into a small building from which smoke was escaping into the air, profusely. We, of course, suspected, he had killed a hog and was smoking the ham. This was, however, not true. He explained he was heating water for his house, his daughter’s house and other buildings on the farm. When he was finished stoking the outdoor furnace, he came over to the car. We had a long, overdue conversation, bringing me up to date

21 violations, plus a $66,900 administrative fine. She has until April 4 of next year to pay, and it wasn’t clear as of last night what punishment if any Hare will face if she misses the payment deadline. “I believe there would be an avenue going through superior court to try to get the fine money,” said Sarah Blodgett, the assistant attorney general for the administrative prosecution unit. Boldgett referred questions about potential penalties to Elyse Alkalay, counsel to the Board of Medicine. Alkalay did not return a phone call. The report outlined other guidelines that Hare must follow, all based on the order’s effective date, July 11. Hare has until Monday to provide a written account of both the measures she’s taken to determine which patients have requested medical records, and her effort to ascertain and contact the patients who have had a medical consultation at Riverfront in the three years since the facility closed. Failure to provide medical records as required or in a timely fashion will give the board the right to assess additional fines totaling $300 for each day beyond the deadline. However, the board also showed leniency toward Hare, stating that “full compliance on the respondent’s part to properly provide patients with medical records and the board with enumerated accountings may result in the board’s suspension or waiver of up to $77,900 of the administrative fine assessed for

violations.” Hare was certified in internal medicine at St. George’s University School of Medicine in Bay Shore, N.Y., graduating in 1996. She completed her internship and residency at West Virginia University Hospital in Morgantown and was licensed to practice medicine in California and Maine. She received her New Hampshire license in 2001. Her problems here began last summer when her license was suspended for five years and she was fined $5,000 for mismanaging medication for nearly two dozen patients. Ordered to pay $1,000 a month for five months, Hare was late with a payment and bounced a check, leading to an additional $10,000 fine two months ago. Later, Hare’s license was revoked after it was revealed she had practiced medicine last January by determining that a 10-year-old girl had bronchitis. Her problems grew when, according to the board, she created a file plan under a physician assistant’s name and generated a prescription for the 10-year-old girl via the computer, also using the assistant’s name. Concord attorney Paul Maggiotto defended Hare at a May hearing, arguing she had not practiced medicine without a license or written the prescription using someone else’s name. “She denied that that’s what she did,” Maggiotto said yesterday. “She claims she just looked this person over and someone else sent in the prescription.”

at a London hotel to catcalls of “shame on you!” from hecklers. He said that “as founder of the company I was appalled to find out what had happened and I apologized.” Dowler family lawyer Mark Lewis said Murdoch appeared humbled and had offered “a heartfelt and what seemed to be a very sincere apology.” “I don’t think somebody could have held their head in their hands so many times and said that they were sorry,” Lewis said. Murdoch’s tone was dramatically different from an interview published Thursday in the Wall Street Journal — which is owned by News Corp. — in which he said the company had handled the crisis “extremely well in every way possible” and complained he was “getting annoyed” at all the negative headlines. The crisis claimed another senior scalp Friday as Brooks, chief executive of Murdoch’s British newspaper division, resigned. The media magnate had defended the 43-yearold Brooks in the face of demands she step down from British politicians — including her friend and neighbor, Prime Minister David Cameron. After previously refusing to accept her resignation, Murdoch made an abrupt switch as News Corp. struggled but failed to contain the crisis. Brooks said she was stepping aside because “my desire to remain on the bridge has made me a focal point of the debate.” “This is now detracting attention from all our honest endeavors to fix the problems of the past,” she said in an email to staff. Brooks said she would “concentrate on correcting the distortions and rebutting the allegations about my record as a journalist, an editor and executive.”

BURGLAR from page one After looking for a while, she said she saw her pocketbook in her backyard and its contents had been strewn around the yard. “I guess they jimmied the lock on the kitchen door, reached in and grabbed it,” she said. The latest victim said the only thing she lost was cash. “They didn’t even take my change,” she said adding all her credit cards, identification and her handicap tag were among the things left behind. “I hope they feel bad for stealing from an old lady with a handicap pass,” she said. The theft of cash only corresponds to the same story told by one of the victims of a similar burglary on Mile Hill Road — not far from Briarcrest. In that case, the victim reported that cash was taken from her pocketbook as well as her husband’s wallet that was taken from their bedroom while they slept. “They didn’t come into my bedroom,” said last night’s victim. Meanwhile, Police Chief Christopher Adams met with Ward 4 City Councilor Brenda Baer who said she reached out to him to see if the City Council could offer any assistance to the Police Department. She said Adams came to her Briarcrest home for the meeting and also had uniformed police officers walking around the retirement community speaking with residents and reminding them to lock their doors and windows at night. “I think that is the right thing to do,” Baer said. The victim on Fairview Street said she didn’t notice she had been burgled until Thursday evening and thinks whoever came into her home may have come during the day when she was away. She said whoever it was only took cash and was very neat. Police logs show stepped up patrols in various city neighborhoods and reports of suspicious activity, likely because people have become more aware of their surroundings, are numerous. Police are recommending that residents lock their car and home doors and windows at night and and leave some type of light on during the evening, inside and outside, if possible. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Laconia Police Department at 524-5252 or the Greater Laconia Crime Line at 524-1717. Police are also asking residents to report any suspicious activity to them immediately.

on family members and their activities. We then proceeded on Hunkins Pond Road. Turning left at the junction of Route 3, driving over the Mosquito Bridge in Winnisquam, we eventually arrived back home via the Laconia bypass and Gunstock Hill Road for a beautiful view of the White Mountains, including Mt. Washington. Reflecting on the day, I find how fortunate we are to live in New Hampshire, being able to choose to see lovely countryside, mountains or seashore, all in a day’s ride. Oh, to have warn sunny days for picnics and just rambling through the state. Plyllis J. Clairmont Gilford

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, July 16, 2011 — Page 9

Alton School Board calls for town vote on new teachers’ contract for October 4 ALTON — The School Board and the Alton Teachers’ Association (ATA) have agreed on a one year collective bargaining agreement that will be effective back to July 1 if approved by voters at a special meeting on October 4. In March 2011, a tie vote of town voters failed to approve an earlier proposal but voters did approve Warrant Article VII, permitting the district to hold a special meeting to try again for funding approval. Since there was no new agreement reached for the 2010-11 school year, members of the ATA did not receive cost of living adjustments (COLA) or s0-called “step” movement. The proposed one-year contract freezes all members of the bargaining unit at the step they were on July 1, 2009. Also, under the proposed contract, a one-time adjustment of 1-percent of their 2010-11 salary is included for all certified staff covered by the contract. This increase will not be in effect in any future year. In the 2007-2010 contract, teachers received a stipend of 3.75-percent on the

Step 1, Bachelor’s Track salary for work on committees. Under the proposed contract, this rate drops to 0.1-percent, saving the district $2,358 based upon 2011 staffing for committee work. Employees hired after July 1, 2011 will work an additional day for professional training and will not be eligible for the point of service (POS) health insurance plan, which is the more expensive policy. Krista Argiropolis, vice chairperson of the Alton School Board, commented, “The proposed one-year contract was reached through cooperative work between the Alton School Board and the Alton Teachers’ Association to achieve a fair solution during these difficult economic times.” Richard Brown, president of the Alton Teachers’ Association, wholeheartedly agreed. He furthermore remarked that, “the ATA appreciates the Alton School Board’s time spent working on this contract to bring to the voters of Alton.” The total additional cost for salary see next page

SHERIDAN from page 1 road beyond repair. Last month, when the road program was presented, Korber outlined a plan to widen the stretch of road to 22 feet with onefoot shoulders drainage swales to match the remainder of the road. Narrow and picturesque, the road is lined with oaks, maples and evergreens and stone walls, which would have to be removed to widen the road.

Laconia man indicted for alleged assault on state attorney girlfriend By Gail OBer

LACONIA — A Belknap County grand jury indicted a city man this week for two felony counts of second degree assault for allegedly choking and pushing into a wall the head of his Alton girlfriend -— an attorney with the N.H. Department of Criminal Justice. Peter Dibiaso, 46, of 16 Wallace Court was also charged with one felony count of witness tampering for allegedly trying to intimidate an Alton Police Officer who responded to the victim’s Jan. 27 9-1-1 call. He was also indicted for five misdemeanor counts of simple assault. The case, which also has a Merrimack County component, is being prosecuted by the Rockingham County Attorney because there is a potential conflict within the Belknap County Attorney’s Office. The investigation was headed by the Belknap County Sheriff’s Department. Dibiaso was arrested in April by the U.S. Marshal’s Gulf Coast Fugitive Task Force in Alabama after the Belknap County Sheriff issued arrest warrants when he failed to show up for a hearing in Laconia District Court in March. He fought extradition but finally appeared in Laconia District Court on June 6 when Judge Jim Carroll ordered him held on $50,000 cash bail.

Police affidavits say Dibiaso had been in a fouryear relationship with Lucy Carrillo — one of the state prosecutors in the Mont Vernon home invasion cases. Documents indicate while the two were in Carrillo’s Alton home, he allegedly pushed her down on the bed and choked her until she lost consciousness. When she awoke, Dibiaso allegedly kicked her repeatedly, at one point pushing her head through a Sheetrock wall. Carrillo called 9-1-1 and Alton Police responded to what was on their end an abandoned call. They said when police got to the home, Dibiaso repeated yelled at her to not talk with them. A clerk in Merrimack County Superior Court said yesterday that Dibiaso also faces three counts of attempted improper influence for what the Concord Monitor said was calling the office of the Attorney General and one of Carrillo’s friends in the Merrimack County Attorney’s Office and threatening to discredit her. At closing time yesterday, a clerk said the paperwork from Thursday and Friday’s Merrimack County grand jury was not complete and she didn’t know if any indictments against Dibiaso were handed down. She said the Merrimack County cases were bound over to Superior Court on June from Concord District Court.

OBAMA from page 2 no on the package without possibility of changes. “If they show me a serious plan I’m ready to move,” declared Obama at his second news conference of the week, even though he said he wanted a far more sweeping deal that might even have raised the age of Medicare eligibility from 65 to 67 if Republicans would increase selected taxes. “We are obviously running out of time,” he said. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said, “Now the debate will move from a room in the White House to the House and Senate floors,” an indication that the daily closed-door negotiations on Obama’s home ground were a thing of the past. The House Republican rank and file were advised in a GOP meeting that, barring action by Congress, the government would be able to pay only about half

its bills after Aug. 2, and separately that a default could cost the government trillions of dollars in the form of higher interest rates on the debt. “No matter what 50 percent you choose to pay, there are things in that 50 percent you don’t pay that would have really severe consequences,” Rep. John Campbell, R-Calif., said afterward. “There are people out there who keep saying we don’t need to increase the debt limit at all. I think this was a way of saying, the people who are saying that need to look at the practical consequences of what they are saying.” Rep. Paul Ryan, of Wisconsin, chairman of the House Budget Committee, told reporters after the meeting he had discussed the additional costs generated by a default — an event that would be likely to raise interest rates.

‘Center Stage’ exhibit at Laconia Library shines spotlight on varied career of entertainer Stan West By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — The heyday of theaters in the area is the subject of the Historical and Museum Society’s next exhibit, titled “Center Stage.” The exhibit, on display at the Laconia Public Library, will open on Monday night and remain viewable through September. For most residents, the theaters were an opportunity to be entertained by the many acts, including celebrities, that visited the area. For Laconia native Stan West, one of the people profiled in the exhibit, the theaters provided an opportunity for him to leave the city and embark upon a life-long, nation-

wide career as an entertainer. A display featuring West’s story and artifacts was loaned to the exhibit by Karen Trendell, West’s niece, who keeps a large collection of his memorabilia and first-hand recollections. West was born May 18, 1915, and raised as the half-brother in the Trendell family of North Main Street. His step-father was a machinist for Scott & Williams and West was keenly aware of the burden his existence placed on the family of six, especially once the Great Depression arrived in Laconia. By his early teenage years, West had begun to earn his see next page

from preceding page own keep by selling Citizen newspapers on Main Street. He quickly learned that he could sell more newspapers if he was tap-dancing than he could if his feet were flat on the ground, so he worked on his technique and found that some people would throw him a penny or two just for the entertainment. West sold many papers in front of the Colonial Theater and at the Eagle Hotel, locations where his antics would catch the eye of vaudeville actors who were passing through and who were often good for a dancing tip or would share with him a new comedy bit. By the time he was 18, in 1933, West figured his dancing skills were sharpened enough to earn him more than what he could make selling newspapers. He noticed an ad in Billboard magazine for an endurance dancing competition at the Paradise Ballroom in Hamden, Maine, and with dancing partner Peggy Worth from Lakeport, he set out to partake in an experience that would be more memorable than either of them could have anticipated. West and Worth, along with the other participants, danced for day after day, 45 minutes at a time with 15 minute breaks in between. As other couples dropped out, West and Worth continued. Responding to requests from the audience, West would perform a tap dance routine or Worth would sing a popular tune, which would elicit a shower of coins from the audience. With a $1,000 prize on the line for first place, West and Worth were dreaming big when they were one of 12 couples still dancing. They didn’t take home the prize money from that competition, because just after the competition had reached the 1,145 hour mark on December 11, 1933, the furnace, which had been running full-blast for the whole event, exploded. The resulting fire burned the Paradise to the ground, killing four dancers and injuring many, including West, who escaped with burns to his neck and head. “I was hooked,” West recalled in a piece he wrote decades later for the Citizen. As soon as his injuries had healed, he joined another dance marathon in

Correction: 5 women have served Town of Alton on Board of Selectmen An article in our Friday, July 15 edition on the passing of Pat Fuller mistakenly described her as the first woman to serve on the Board of Selectmen in Alton. In fact, four women preceded her: Marion MacDonald, Patricia Merrill, Bonnie D. Joseph and Chris Blackstone.

Avon, Mass. He won that competition after dancing for 94 days. West dedicated his young life to endurance dancing and joined the dance circuit, which, like a circus, would tour the country and set up for a few months at a time. West, who could earn as much from audience tips as he could from prize money, developed a routine where he would tap dance on a table top while wearing roller skates. He would also participate in slap-stick or Vaudeville-type comedy routines provided during the 15-minute breaks or perform impressions of famous musicians on his trumpet, which he had learned to play while a member of the Laconia High School band. His entertaining qualities often were noticed by night club owners who were in attendance at the competitions, and he would pick up gigs on the side, playing his trumpet or performing comedy routines after he was through dancing. West went through many dancing partners through his career but when he started dancing with Margie Bright, of Atlanta, Ga., he found his perfect match. They were such a good match that in 1941 the two married as part of the proceedings during a dancing competition in Waterloo, Illinois. Through his dancing career, West met several celebrities and succeeded in charming many of them. In 1938, West was dancing on a boat docked in Washington, D.C. Playing on that same boat was Louis Armstrong. West was near Armstrong when a drunken man careened toward the famous trumpet player until deflected by West, who knew that a trumpet player’s career could be ended if his instrument was shoved against his lip. Armstrong invited him into his dressing room after the show and the two developed a friendship. Armstrong advised West to concentrate on his own music, his own style of playing, instead of performing impressions of others. The advice was wellreceived and after about a dozen years on the dance circuit, West quit to start a Dixieland-style band called The Spotlights, which played up and down the West Coast. West spent the rest of his career in music and entertainment. He married a second wife, Rita, after Margie died. West died at 86 years old while living in a nursing home in Las Vegas, Nev. West and Margie had a son, Stan West, Jr. Trendell, the curator of his artifacts, said visits from the family’s Hollywood-based uncle were rare but relished. “He was the entertainer — he’d always crack a joke. He was a storyteller, it was fun to see him and talk to him, he had met so many people.”

Newman grabs poll for Sunday’s race in Loudon

LOUDON, N.H. (AP) — Stewart-Haas Racing finally gets top billing. Ryan Newman won his 47th career pole, turning a track-record lap of 135.232 mph Friday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and Tony Stewart was second to give SHR its first front-row sweep. Stewart was right behind his employee and teammate at 135.064. They were the only drivers to top 135 mph. “Awesome for the organization,” Stewart said. Newman won his first pole of the season in the No. 39 Chevrolet, a far cry from the 20 combined poles he earned in 2003-04. Those pole positions early in his career helped boost his total and he’s now 10th on the career poles list, including a record five poles at New Hampshire. “It works,” he said. “It’s like making good macaroni and cheese. Sometimes, it just tastes good. I don’t know what the entire chemistry is, but I like it.” It’s the sixth pole for Stewart-Haas Racing, but the first time both SHR Chevrolets will start sideby-side at the front of the field. “I felt really confident in practice today that we would have a shot at the pole today just based on the way the car felt,” Newman said. Newman hopes the strong start will translate into his first victory of the season. Newman enters Sunsee next page

Rays slam Red Sox 9-6 as baseball’s 2nd half underway ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — All-Star David Price pitched six solid innings and Ben Zobrist hit his fifth career grand slam, helping the Tampa Bay Rays tighten the AL East standings with a 9-6 victory Friday night that snapped first-place Boston’s six-game winning streak. Price (9-7) allowed five hits — three of them solo homers — while striking out seven and walking one in his first outing since giving up Derek Jeter’s 3,000th hit at Yankee Stadium last week. The 25-year-old lefty skipped Tuesday’s All-Star game because of a turf toe injury, helping manager Joe Maddon set up Tampa Bay’s pitching rotation the way he wanted to begin a crucial stretch starting the second half of the season. The switch-hitting Zobrist homered from the right side off Andrew Miller (3-1) in the second, breaking the franchise record for grand slams he shared with Carlos Pena. Zobrist drove in a fifth run when he drew a bases-loaded walk from the left side of the plate against reliever Alfredo Aceves, making it 7-2 in the third. Casey Kotchman hit a two-run homer and B.J. Upton and Sam Fuld had RBI singles for the third-

place Rays, who continued a stretch in which they are playing 10 consecutive games against the Red Sox and second-place New York Yankees, the teams they are chasing in the AL East. The victory trimmed Tampa Bay’s season-high, six-game deficit in the division to five. Kyle Farnsworth retired all four batters he faced, earning his 18th save in 20 opportunities. Darnell McDonald, Jacoby Ellsbury and Dustin Pedroia homered off Price for the Red Sox, who lost for just the second time in 12 games. Pedroia and Kevin Youkilis singled for the other hits off the Rays ace, who has given up five homers in three July starts — one of them a solo shot for Jeter’s 3,000th hit last Saturday. Marco Scutaro’s two-run homer off Joel Peralta trimmed Tampa Bay’s lead to 9-5 in the seventh. Youkilis added an RBI single off Juan Cruz in the eighth. Boston’s David Ortiz remained in the lineup after appealing the four-game suspension he received for his part in a bench-clearing melee with the Baltimore Orioles last week. The All-Star slugger was suspended Thursday, along with Orioles pitchers Kevin Gregg and Mike Gonzalez and Baltimore manager Buck Showalter. Ortiz answered questions from reporters, but declined to specifically address the discipline before going 0 for 4 with two strikeouts against the Rays. “I can’t really talk about it now. But at one point I will,” Ortiz said. “I’ll tell you what I was thinking. I’ll tell you what I thought was right.”

Most Belknap County lawmakers get ‘A’s from conservative advocacy group CONCORD — Lawmakers from the Lakes Region earned high marks from the Americans for Prosperity Foundation, a conservative advocacy group that supported Republican candidates in the 2010 elections. No fewer than 13 of the 18 members of the House of Representatives — all Republicans — elected in the county received perfect scores for their votes on eleven bills tracked by the organization. Senator Jim Forsythe (R-Strafford), who represents District 4) also posted a perfect score while Senator Jeanie Forrester (R-Meredith), who voted with the majority not to withdraw from the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), scored 91-percent. Representatives Harry Accornero of Laconia, Dennis Fields of Sanbornton, Robert Greemore of Meredith, Robert Luther of Laconia, Robert Malone of Gilford, Jeffrey St. Cyr of Alton, and Elaine Swinford of Barnstead were all awarded grade of “A+” for their perfect voting record on all 11 bills. Guy Comtois of Barnstead, Don Flanders of Laconia, Robert Kingsbury of Laconia, Tyler Simpson of New Hampton, William Tobin of Sanbornton and Colette Worsman of Meredith also had perfect voting records, but were not present for all eleven votes.

Laconia reps hosting ‘town meeting’ on Monday night

LACONIA — The city’s five member House delegation — all Republicans — are hosting an informal “town meeting” on Monday night (July 18) in the Community Room at the Police Station from 7 to 9 p.m. According to Rep. Bob Kingsbury, the meeting format will include a discussion of the legislative session just completed and a look ahead to the nonbudget-year session that starts in January. All interested citizens are invited to attend and participate.

In the House, apart from the state budget, Americans for Prosperity followed bills to repeal RGGI, require a three-fifths majority to raise an existing tax or levy a new tax, restrict the use of eminent domain, affirming right-to-work, adjusting business taxes, lowering the cigarette tax, permitting municipalities to impose tax caps, reforming the state retirement system and requiring departments to submit reduced budgets as part of the budget process.

Community Services will use tax credits to improve Federal Building LACONIA — The Lakes Region Community Services Council (LRCSC) has been awarded $926,250 in the form of tax credits by the New Hampshire Community Development Finance Authority (CDFA). The Community Development Investment Program enables firms to contribute cash, securities or real property to approved projects in return for a 75-percent credit against their liabilities for the business profits tax, business enterprise tax or insurance premium tax. The organization granted the tax credits are responsible for soliciting the donations in the amount of their award. The award to the council was the largest of the 21 made by the CDFA to different organizations, which altogether totaled $7.6-million. Christine Santaniello, executive director of LRCSC, said that the funds would be applied to improvements to the Federal Building on North Main Street, which the federal government agreed to transfer to the agency after abandoning it two years ago. “We intend to invest in energy efficiencies and improving accessibility,” she said, adding that “we want to do all we can to reduce our operating expenses and ensure that all parts of the building accessible and comply with the requirements of the Americans With Disabilities Act.” Santaniello said that the agency hopes to move into the Federal Building early in December. “We expect to use most of the space, but we hope to be

Lakes Region Real Estate Market Report / Roy Sanborn

Waterfront report: anyone spot a trend here? Yeah! Summer is really here. The temperature is heating up and it finally feels like it is lake weather. It’s time to get out on the boat and enjoy it. There were twelve waterfront sales on Winnipesaukee in June which is a 50-percent increase over June of last year. That’s pretty encouraging! And there were some large sales, too! In fact 10 of the 12 sales were over the million mark. There were three sales in the $2-3 million range and one over $4 million. The average sales price last month was $1.778-million compared to $1.376-million last June and the total volume for the month was slightly over $21-million compared to $12.6 last June. That’s a pretty good month in my book. The least expensive sale on the lake was at 13 Acadia Lane in Alton. This lakeside fifties vintage, 728-square-foot, two bedroom cottage was a bank owned property that has had some recent updates including a metal roof and vinyl siding. The home sits on a one third acre lot with 100-feet of frontage and a dock. The home was only on the market a month before some buyers jumped on it so they could enjoy the lake for the summer. It was priced at $385,000 and actually sold for more at $425,000. Sounds like there could have been a little bidding going on for this one. The current tax assessed value is $497,200 so it would seem that the buyer still got a good deal. On the higher end pricing spectrum, across the lake in Moultonborough at 11 Mallard way, there is a waterfront that is about 10 times larger that also has a new owner. This Adirondack style home has 7,500-square feet of living space with 17 rooms, six bedrooms, eight baths, and a whole lot of quality! This Skiffington home was built in 2004 and features post and beam construction, a gourmet custom kitchen, a fabulous great room with soaring ceilings, five fireplaces, a large family/ game room on the walk out lower level, first floor master suite, a three room suite over the three car heated garage, and sweeping decks. The home sits on a 1.1 acre lot with beautiful landscaping, great sunset views, 156-feet of frontage, a perched beach, and a covered dock. This home was originally listed on New Year’s Eve in 2008 for $3.999-million and again in September of 2009 for the same amount. It was listed again in November of 2010 for $3.495-million and sold for $2.9-million after a combined total of 750 days on the market. The current tax assessed value is $2,864,300. I wonder if there was confetti dropping and they were blowing horns when this one sold? The highest sale on the lake last month was also in Moultonborough at 31 Wallace Road. This beautiful 10,000-square-foot lodge style waterfront has 15 rooms, seven bedrooms, nine baths, a grand living room with fieldstone fireplace, cathedral

ceilings and exposed beams, a lower level family/pool room plus a lower level living room, and master suites on the first and second levels. This magnificent home sits on a professionally landscaped 1.89-acre lot with 235-feet of frontage that has a sandy beach, two bay boat house, plus a permanent 58-foot crib dock. As with many homes in this market, this one took a while to sell, too. It was originally listed in 2008 at $6.495-million, in 2009 at $5.295-million, in 2010 at $4.795-million, and this year at $4.495-million finally selling at $4.325-million after a combined total of 367 days on the market. The current assessed value is $3.639 million. Anyone see any trends here? There have been a total of 41 Winnipesaukee sales for the first half of 2011 at an average of $1.172 million compared to 38 sales for the first half of 2010 at an average of $1.28 million. I’d say that’s holding our own in this economy! Over on Winnisquam there were four sales with the largest being in Laconia at 126 Shore Drive. This sixties vintage ranch had 3,900-square-feet of living space, four bedrooms, three baths, a large living room, two fireplaces, and a family room in the walkout lower level. The one third acre lot has 100-feet of frontage, a sandy beach, dock, and fabulous sunset views. This home was snapped up after one day on the market at the full asking price of $699,000 which is slightly above the current $665,000 tax assessment. A great deal in a great Winnisquam neighborhood. There have been 13 sales on Winnisquam during the first half of 2011 at an average of $470,204 compared to just seven for the first half of 2010 at an average of $521,571. I’d say things are going pretty well on Winnisquam so far this year! There weren’t any sales on Squam last month and only three sales through June 30th this year, but that is three more sales than the first half of last year. I’m not sure what’s going on up there but there are 24 homes on the lake for sale ranging from $399,000 to over $8-million so hopefully sales will pick up over the summer months. Maybe people have forgotten that the elusive lake trout “Walter” (or actually his descendant) is still out there. I read that “Walter” was brought over to Squam for the movie from a trout pond at the Castle in the Clouds. Ahhh, he wasn’t a Squamy after all… Log on to my blog at for the details on these sales and others. You can also receive these reports by email.

‘Building Yourself’ workshop to be offered by Lakes Region Community College beginning July 21

LACONIA — Lakes Region Community College (LRCC) will hold a 12-hour workshop entitled “Building Yourself” on Thursdays from 2 — 4 p.m. from July 21 — August 25. The new workshop is focused on developing an individual’s understanding of his/her personal and social values, and the setting of priorities between family, school/work, education, relationships, and personal interests. “Participation in the new ‘Building Yourself’ workshop will help an individual develop a better understanding of values, communication skills, and achievements,” explained Janet Hunt, the developer and facilitator of the new workshop. “It will help the participant to examine how decisions and goals are constructed.” Content will include decision making, setting a self-guideline for follow-through,

taking responsibility for decisions, setting practical goals, holding oneself accountable, and evaluating the influence individuals have on each other. “Participating in the new workshop will be like opening the door to who you are,” Hunt continued. “A participant will ask why he/she has made certain decisions, to whom one looks for wisdom, and what one learns from others. The workshop provides an opportunity for reflection and self-expression.” Hunt holds a master’s degree in Human Service Administration from Southern New Hampshire University. She is a private consultant for individuals, management, and direct support professionals. Hunt is also executive coordinator for the non-profit “People First in New Hampshire.” The “Building Yourself” workshop costs $99.

Artists of all kinds sought for White Mountains Cultural Festival

LITTLETON — Artists of all kinds are encouraged to become involved in this summer’s White Mountains Cultural Festival: Eight Days of Weeks, a celebration of art and nature. The Festival will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Weeks Act, federal legislation that allowed the Forest Service to purchase private land and turn it into public forest, including the White Mountain National Forest. Dates and locations include August 6 and 7 — Plymouth to Lincoln area; August 13 and14 — Bethlehem to Whitefield region; August 20 and 21 — Mt. Washington Valley; and August 27 and 28 — Gorham/Berlin region. Opportunities abound for visual artists and craftspeople, from exhibiting their work in public places in advance of the Festival to being paired with a naturalist on nature walks and capture the essence of birds, flowers, trees, insects, water, and mountains through sketching and simple paintings. Plein air painters will be invited to paint at selected locations throughout

the region, and to show their work. Craftspeople whose work is inspired by wood, stone, and other natural materials — or is part of a North Country tradition — will be invited to demonstrate their techniques. Adult and student musicians, theater artists, dancers, writers, and poets are also needed for a variety of programs, performances, and special events. “This is a grass-roots festival for year-round and summer residents as well as visitors to our region,” said Arts Alliance director Frumie Selchen. “We’re really open to fun and innovative ideas, both artist-generated and community-based, that help us explore and celebrate northern New Hampshire and our cultural connections to our landscape in interesting ways.” Contact Weeks coordinator Deb Cottrell at or 323-8050 for more information or to participate.

John Howe becomes co-owner of New Hampshire Business Sales, Inc.

MEREDITH — New Hampshire Business Sales, Inc., the state’s oldest and largest business brokerage, has announced that John Howe has acquired the ownership interest of the company previously held by Ivor Thomas. Howe is now a co-owner of the company and a member of the Board of Directors, and has assumed the role of vice president and treasurer of the corporation. He is also director of the company’s Business Transition Strategies division, which handles complex business transactions and mid-market merger and acquisition projects as well as business advisory engagements. Leon Parker, president, said the move will provide for a smooth transition in ownership and management of the company, which has been successfully selling businesses since the mid-1970s. “We are emerging from one of the worst economic periods in our history, and New Hampshire businesses appear to be heading toward a new period of prosperity,” Parker said. “We are looking forward to helping current business owners achieve the maximum value for their hard work when they sell. This will preserve jobs and help grow the economy.” Parker will remain president and half owner of the company. Thomas will continue with the company in a variety of roles including as an associate and member of the Board of Directors. “I am very pleased to see this smooth transition in ownership and management under way,” commented company founder Stewart Lamprey. “I have been watching John’s progress with our company over the past few years, but more importantly, have observed his commitment to the state of New Hampshire and his devotion to economic development through the years. He cares about people, businesses, and the state. And that matters.” Lamprey founded the company and established

core values that remain in place today: integrity, hard work, professional competence, cooperation and accountability. Howe joined NHBS as an associate in 2009 after retiring from a career in journalism. Previously, he was editor and general manager of Citizen Publishing Company when it was owned by the Geo J. Foster Company. Thomas is responsible for recruiting Howe to join the company and has served as a mentor over the past two years. He intends to continue working closely with Howe over the next few years in building up the BTS division.

“John brings strong organizational and project management skills to his new role,” Thomas said. “I feel it is important for us to transition leadership and ownership in a way that preserves the heritage of this company, as exemplified by Stewart Lamprey, while taking us into the future and to be relevant as the New Hampshire economic landscape transforms. John will help us do that.” For more information about NHBS, visit www. or or e-mail The main office may be reached at 279-5561.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your self-worth is not determined by the acceptance of those around you, although it is only human to be influenced by such external cues. So take a moment to appreciate yourself before you meet the public. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have more gumption than you did yesterday, but don’t let that influence you when it’s time to make a promise. It’s better to under-state what you can do and over-deliver than to do the opposite. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Social ups and downs are inevitable, and today such fluctuations are not to be taken too personally. Note that busy and/or hungry people have the shortest tempers. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You are a master at reading people now. You’ll detect the nuances of other people’s attitudes, and you’ll note what you observe. This information will be useful later. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). No matter how close a relationship is, you are still two people, and you need a degree of separateness and the freedom to explore autonomously. Liberate yourself, if only for a few hours. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 15). You will detach from unhealthy preoccupations and center your life on what truly makes you happy. You’ll work out stress through physical fitness and sports, and you’ll love your new shape. Exciting business happens in September. A relationship becomes a main event in October. November brings a windfall. Pisces and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 1, 22, 49 and 38.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You will confront many obstacles to your success. That you are willing to do so head-on is your main strength. Many would have backed down long ago, but you’re a fighter. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). An unexpected snafu takes up more time than you had planned. There is a litany of dissatisfactions and frustrations that you could blame this on, and yet you rise above it, keeping harmony in your world. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You could chase many dreams at once, but your lack of detectable progress would probably frustrate you. That’s why it’s better to pick one thing to do with this day and celebrate when the job is finished. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are not as reactive to the goings on around you as others seem to be. You learn what you need to know, and you see the process as the means to an end. This mindset will take you straight to the goal. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Avoiding obligations is actually a good tactic now, since it’s likely that you feel more obligated than is appropriate. You may find it easy to serve others, but it’s not your only role in life. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). When the others around you are nervous, you feel it, too. You want to do something to alleviate the feeling, but the best thing you could do is experience it for all it has to teach you and then let it pass. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The quest for perfection is self-defeating. Strive to be more in touch with your human frailty and fallibility instead. This connects you with the compassion inside you and brings about your comfort and

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Saturday, July 16, the 197th day of 2011. There are 168 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 16, 1911, actress-dancer Ginger Rogers was born Virginia Katherine McMath in Independence, Mo. On this date: In 1790, a site along the Potomac River was designated the permanent seat of the United States government; the area became Washington, D.C. In 1862, David G. Farragut became the first rear admiral in the United States Navy. In 1935, the first parking meters were installed in Oklahoma City. In 1945, the United States exploded its first experimental atomic bomb in the desert of Alamogordo, N.M. In 1951, the novel “The Catcher in the Rye” by J.D. Salinger was first published by Little, Brown and Co. In 1964, as he accepted the Republican presidential nomination in San Francisco, Barry M. Goldwater said “extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice” and that “moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.” In 1969, Apollo 11 blasted off from Cape Kennedy on the first manned mission to the surface of the moon. In 1973, during the Senate Watergate hearings, former White House aide Alexander P. Butterfield publicly revealed the existence of President Richard Nixon’s secret taping system. In 1981, singer Harry Chapin was killed when his car was struck by a tractor-trailer on New York’s Long Island Expressway. In 1999, John F. Kennedy Jr., his wife, Carolyn, and her sister, Lauren Bessette, died when their single-engine plane, piloted by Kennedy, plunged into the Atlantic Ocean near Martha’s Vineyard, Mass. One year ago: Retired intelligence analyst Kendall Myers, the 73-year-old great grandson of Alexander Graham Bell, was sentenced to life in prison without parole for quietly spying for Cuba for nearly a third of a century from inside the State Department; his wife, Gwendolyn, was sentenced to 5 1/2 years. Today’s Birthdays: Former Attorney General Dick Thornburgh is 79. Soul singer Denise LaSalle is 77. Soul singer William Bell is 72. International Tennis Hall of Famer Margaret Court is 69. Violinist Pinchas Zukerman is 63. Actor-singer Ruben Blades is 63. Rock composer-musician Stewart Copeland is 59. Playwright Tony Kushner is 55. Dancer Michael Flatley is 53. Actress Phoebe Cates is 48. Actor Daryl “Chill” Mitchell is 46. Actorcomedian Will Ferrell is 44. Actor Jonathan Adams is 44. Actress Rain Pryor is 42. Actor Corey Feldman is 40. Rock musician Ed Kowalczyk (Live) is 40. Rock singer Ryan McCombs is 37. Actor Mark Indelicato (“Ugly Betty”) is 17.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, July 16, 2011— Page 23


Dear Annie: My husband and I have been separated for three years. Things had been going well until he got involved in an offbeat church and began housing homeless people of different backgrounds. I couldn’t take it anymore and left. He recently took in a 16-year-old foreign girl who has a toddler and a year-old infant. This may sound like charity, but they are all sleeping in the same bed. He takes care of them as if they are his actual family. The way he talks about the girl, you would assume they are a couple. He takes her to church. She cooks for him, and he helps her bathe the children. What do you think of this situation? -- Estranged Wife in Kansas Dear Kansas: It sounds a little peculiar -- especially the sleeping arrangements. If your husband is having sex with this young woman, he could be breaking the law. (Not to mention he is still married to you.) We assume she is in the country legally, and it is possible that your husband has taken her in simply out of the kindness of his heart. Since we don’t have the details, we will not jump to any conclusions. Dear Annie: I was raised to look at the big picture and not sweat the small stuff. So when I was dating, I didn’t expect to magically meet my male clone. When I was in college, I met a funny, bright young man who had considerable drive and with whom I shared a common faith. We fell in love. My friends warned me that he was a social bully, but I defended him and said he was entitled to state his opinions forcefully. We have been married for several years and have wonderful children. But I gave up having a true partner with whom to share my life, because I blindly married a self-centered person who forces his own agenda in every situation and is completely intolerant of anything that doesn’t appeal to

him. We don’t travel because he doesn’t like it. We don’t go to movies because he hates standing in line. We don’t go out to dinner with friends because he can’t hold a civil conversation. Every car trip turns into a litany of the faults of other drivers. When I was younger, I thought it was fine for him to have such different opinions. I knew marriage required compromise. I didn’t realize that all the compromises would be on my end. I should have waited to meet someone who shared some of my opinions and tastes. I don’t know whether we will spend our golden years together. I want to tell young people to do an imaginary fast-forward and ask themselves how they will feel about their partner’s behavior in 10 years -- and if the behavior you convince yourself to tolerate in your “soul mate” will be acceptable when demonstrated in front of your children. -- California Dear California: Too many people, both young and old, neglect to heed their intuition. They disregard signals that tell them to be careful, that some things are unacceptable, that “irritations” you are willing to overlook in the bloom of love can turn into major headaches later. Thank you for being the voice of experience. Dear Annie: You recently printed a letter from “Turned Off,” who complained about men who don’t trim their nose and ear hair. She said their wives should tell them. Not every man has a wife to do this, and not all men listen. My barber automatically asks me every time I get my hair cut whether or not I want my nose hairs or eyebrows trimmed. Since his job is hair trimming, this seems a natural thing for him to do, so there is no embarrassment. -- Well Groomed in the Midwest

CASEY from page 2 said Friday it received an emailed death threat with a doctored photo of the 25-year-old woman with a bullet hole through her forehead. The threat was forwarded to authorities. One her attorneys, Cheney Mason, said Anthony is nervous about getting out of jail, and he isn’t taking any chances: “We are all vigilant and I am armed.” A jury acquitted Anthony last week of murder but found her guilty of lying to law officers investigating

the disappearance of Caylee in 2008. She was sentenced to four years in prison, but with good behavior and nearly three years already served, she will be out this weekend. Details of her release are being closely held, and the sheriff’s department is not making the time public beforehand. “This will not be a usual release,” jail spokesman Allen Moore said in an email. “Due to the highprofile nature of this case and intense, emotional

tilton associates, you’re the best at j.jill, we know our success as a team depends on each individual associate. every day, we appreciate our workforce of over 400, and this week especially we are thanking and congratulating our tilton-based associates who are celebrating 5 or more years of service. thank you for your unwavering commitment, passion and dedication to our customers, the j.jill brand and your respective communities.

interest by the public, appropriate measures will be taken to release the individual into the community in such a manner so as to preserve the safety of the individual and public.” The Orange County Jail has had very few highprofile inmates. Former astronaut Lisa Nowak, who was convicted in a bizarre attack on a romantic rival, walked out the jail’s front door, where a horde of media pushed and elbowed their way toward her, shouting questions and trying to snap photos. In another case, Noelle Bush, the daughter of then-Gov. Jeb Bush and niece of then-President George W. Bush, received special handling after her arrest on drug charges. Secret Service agents were worried she could be targeted. Once she is out of jail, Anthony will not get special treatment beyond the protection any person would get if there were a credible threat, law enforcement authorities said. (Earlier this week, authorities said they had not received any credible threats, but they did not immediately return a call Friday about the new email.) “She’s like every other resident or citizen here,” Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said. “We’re not going to be her personal security. Her attorneys will make appropriate decisions or prepare for her own security after that.”
