3 Lakeport roadways & Oak St. next up for reconstruction By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — After completing the reconstruction of Highland Street and Cedar Street as well as paving a stretch of Gilford Avenue between Union Avenue and Highland Street this spring, the Department of Public Works is turning to a

handful projects scheduled for the balance of the summer. Paul Moynihan, Director of Public Works, said yesterday that Busby Construction Company of Atkinson, New Hampshire is set to start work in Lakeport, where sections of two streets and all of a third will be reconstructed. He explained

that reconstruction involves reclaiming the existing the surface, regrading the roadbed improving the drainage and paving the street. In Lakeport the section of Belvedere Street between School Street and Gold Street, the entire length of Fairmont Street and Washington Street

from Fairmont Street to School Street will be reconstructed in that order. Moynihan expects that the work in Lakeport will be finished by late August. The last project on the schedule is the reconstruction of the full length of Oak Street, from Messer Street to Pleasant see rOad WOrK page 12

3 asked to resign in wake of ‘cloudy’ pool drowning in Mass.

BOSTON (AP) — The public swimming pool where the body of a woman lay unnoticed for more than two days should never have been opened on the day she drowned because the water was too murky, state investigators said Wednesday. The pool’s manager, its assistant manager and the regional director of the Department of Conservation and Recreation were asked to resign for their roles in keeping the state-run Fall River pool open on June 26 when 36-year-old Marie Joseph drowned accidentally. A fourth employee, the agency’s district manager with oversight of the pool, was placed on leave. A city health inspector also has been fired. “We think bad decisions were made,” said Edward Lambert, commissioner of the state Department of Conservation and Recreation. “The pool should not open if there is a water clarity issue.” State officials see POOL page 13

If big debt deal near, Obama would sign stopgap measure WASHINGTON (AP) — Running out of time, President Barack Obama softened his stand and signaled Wednesday he would back a short-term deal to prevent a disastrous financial default on Aug. 2, but only if a larger and still elusive deficit-cutting agreement was essentially in place. He called lawmakers to the White House in a scramble to find enough votes from both Republicans and his own party. Obama met with the Democratic leaders of the House and Senate, and then separately with House Speaker John Boehner and his deputy, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, in hopes of cobbling together a big

compromise. All signs pointed to a legislative fight that would play out to the end. The president, pushing for a deal that would cut the nation’s budget deficit across the next decade and extend the government’s tapped-out borrowing power through the approaching election year, had threatened to veto any stopgap expansion of the nation’s debt limit. He even challenged Cantor, R-Va., not to call his bluff about it in one confrontational moment last week. Obama’s now-calibrated position, offered by spokesman Jay Carney, reflected the reality: leaders are nearly out of time to

head off unprecedented trouble. Carney said if a divided Congress and the White House can agree on a significant deal, Obama would accept a “very short-term extension” of the debt limit to let bigger legislation work its way through Congress. Even a few days matters, given the stakes. The government will exhaust its ability to borrow money and pay its bills come Aug. 2, an outcome that could sink the country back into recession, halt Social Security checks, send interest rates higher and erode the creditworthiness of the richsee OBAMA page 11

Bipartisan deficit plan would trim sacred mortgage interest deduction

WASHINGTON (AP) — A new bipartisan plan to reduce government borrowing would target some of the most cherished tax breaks enjoyed by millions of families — those promoting health insurance, home ownership, charitable giving and retirement savings — in exchange for lowering overall tax rates for everyone. Many taxpayers would face higher taxes — a total of at least $1.2 trillion over the next decade, and perhaps more.

The details and impact of the plan, released this week by the bipartisan “Gang of Six” senators, emerged as President Barack Obama called congressional leaders to the White House on Wednesday to determine, in separate meetings, their bottom line for extending the nation’s debt limit while also cutting spending at the greatest amount possible. The role of additional tax revenue remained a sticking point.

With the default deadline of Aug. 2 approaching, the White House signaled for the first time that Obama would be willing to sign off on a short-term extension of the debt limit if a grander deal were in the works and needed only a few days’ worth of extra time to wind its way through the legislative process. For its part, the Gang of Six plan punts on many of the most difficult issues, leavsee INTEREST page 13

3 swept over a waterfall at Yosemite & presumed dead

YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, Calif. (AP) — Young tourists above one of Yosemite National Park’s beautiful and perilous waterfalls were trying to pose for a picture. Instead they burned a horrifying image into the memories of everyone who saw. A man and a woman crossed a metal barricade above the 317-foot Vernal Fall on Tuesday, making their way over slick granite to a rock in the middle of the swift Merced River. The woman slipped. The man reached for her and fell in. Another man in their group of about 10 tried to help but fell into the water as well. Other hikers, including several children in their group, could only watch as the rushing water swept all three students over the edge. The couple who were on the rock hugged each other tightly as they disappeared. “Everyone was screaming,” witness Jake Bibee said. “People were praying. What I will take away with me forever is the look on that grown man’s face as he was floating down that river knowing he was going to die and nobody could help them.” Signs in several languages warn people not to cross the barricade, and Bibee said other hikers had shouted that it wasn’t safe to go into the rushing river. The three students are presumed dead; rescuers continued searching for their bodies Wednesday. The Yosemite Search and Rescue unit identified them as Hormiz David, 22, of Modesto; Ninos Yacoub, 27, of Turlock; and Ramina Badal, 21, of Manteca. The victims were part of a close-knit community of Christians from the Middle East who have been settling in California’s Central Valley during the past century. They were members of the Mar Gewargis Parish in Ceres, where a prayer service was planned Wednesday evening. The church is part of the Assyrian Church of the East. “It’s very shocking to our community,” said the Rev. Auchana Kanoun, who leads the parish.

Heat ‘dome’ makes much of U.S. feel like steam bath CHICAGO (AP) — If the extreme heat and humidity lingering over much of the nation feels like a steam bath, it’s because the same principles are at work in the atmosphere. Vast amounts of warmth and moisture have become trapped under a huge “heat dome,” bringing record-breaking temperatures and thick, topical air to scores of cities from the Plains to the Ohio Valley. Now the system is moving east to spread the misery to some of the country’s most densely populated areas through the weekend. With temperatures hovering around 100, Jeff Grembocki and other construction workers prepared Wednesday to pour concrete for a walkway improvement project near downtown Kansas City. Empty Gatorade bottles lay strewn across their job site. Grembocki said the heat saps his energy so much that he falls asleep soon after getting home. He only rouses for a couple of hours to watch TV before going back to bed. “The air conditioning, when it hits you, it’s all you can do to stay awake,” he said. The heat dome forms when a high pressure system develops in the upper atmosphere, causing the air below it to sink and compress because there’s more weight on top. That raises temperatures in the lower atmosphere, said Eli Jacks, a meteorologist with the

National Weather Service in Silver Spring, Md. The dome of high pressure also pushes the jet stream and its drier, cooler air, farther north — it’s now well into Canada — while hot, humid air from the Gulf of Mexico circulates clockwise around the dome, traveling farther inland than normal. Combined with generally clear skies and the sun’s higher summertime angle, “it gets really hot,” Jacks said. The cruel result: eye-popping heat index readings measuring temperature combined with humidity. In Newton, Iowa, it was 98 degrees Wednesday with a heat index that made it feel like 115. A day earlier, Newton’s heat index hit 129 degrees. In Indianapolis, the thermometer read 98 degrees but it felt like almost 114. Chicago’s Midway Airport recorded a high of 99 degrees, which felt like 108. Humidity levels in some of the hottest cities ranged from 40 to 60 percent. The formation of the dome also explains why conditions in, say, North Dakota aren’t much different this week than in Houston. The big difference is that people in Houston are accustomed to hot weather. Those in the north are not. “In places where the highest temperature you ever expect is in the 80s and you’re at 102, there are see HEAT page 14

Senate committee considers real of Defense of Marriage Act WASHINGTON (AP) — Proponents of same-sex marriage are likening their cause to the civil rights battles, calling once more for repeal of a 1996 law that defines marriage as between a man and a woman. The new pleas came Wednesday at a hearing the Senate Judiciary Committee held on legislation that would repeal the Defense of Marriage Act. The committee also heard from several supporters of existing law who said repeal would undermine traditional marriage and the will of most Americans. Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., who led civil rights

marches during the 1960s, called the law a stain on democracy. He said that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. answered those who opposed interracial marriages by noting that individuals, not entire races, fall in love and get married. “Marriage is a basic human right,” Lewis said. “No government, federal or state, should tell people they cannot marry.” But Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said that repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act would devalue marsee MARRIAGE page 15

Barnstead committee meets with sheriff with future of town police dept. on the table BY GAIL OBER


BARNSTEAD — The Regional Police Committee met with the Belknap County Sheriff and the County Administrator Tuesday night in an effort to set expectations for the possible subcontracting of town’s police services to the county. The discussion centered around parameters set by both entities with the assumption that there can be no agreement unless the proposal is mutually beneficial to both parties. “Clearly Belknap County doesn’t have money to carry anything,” began Committee Chair Gordon Preston. “And we need to wind up with something that protects both parties.” Barnstead selectmen began discussions of regionalizing police services in late 2010 as part of the general discussion surrounding the annual budget. In January, former Selectmen’s Chair Jim Barnard said it was getting to the point where many small communities cannot afford individual police departments. Preliminarily, Sheriff Craig Wiggin has said he could save Barnstead’s taxpayers about $168,000 annually but said Tuesday the final numbers would be dependent on tweaking the figures to incorporate the new state retirement policy and recent step increases. Barnard, who is a former Barnstead Police Chief, was defeated in his bid for re-election but the current Board of Selectmen, which has two new members, continues to support exploring the option and created the Regional Police Committee in late spring. Serving on the committee are Preston, who is the chair, Vice Chair Alan Glassman, Fire Chief Mark Tetreault, Paul Vince (an attorney who served on the Fire Department Building Committee) and William Haines (a lieutenant with the N.H. State Police.) Preston got right to the point when he said one of the major grumblings he hears around town is that “people are afraid the town is giving away all the

stuff we’ve bought.” Wiggin said the physical assets within the Police Department were provided for police services and he is confident his department and the town can come to some kind of financially equitable solution to his department’s absorption of town police assets. Wiggin said some of Barnstead equipment — specifically radios and cruisers — are antiquated and his department would have no interest in them. “If the town want’s to keep the cars for the town, (that’s) fine,” he said noting all of them have more than 100,000 miles. He also said the Sheriff’s Department has a vehicle replacement lease program that Barnstead, while it would be a subcontract, would still be able to utilize. As for the radios, Wiggin said if one of them broke it would not be feasible, and likely impossible, to get parts, and most aren’t up to today’s digital standards. He said it would be standard to have a clause in the police contract that would return Barnstead’s equipment to Barnstead if the police subcontract failed or didn’t work out as expected. One of the potential deal breakers is the absorption of police officers into the Sheriff’s Department and Tetreault said he wanted to know more about the “last-in, first-out” union policy governing the Sheriff’s Department and whether or not Barnstead’s officers would get some kind of job security. “We need some kind of protection in case of a new sheriff,” Tetreault said. “They will come in down at the bottom,” Wiggin said, adding that regardless of who is sheriff there is a one-year probation period for all new hires but an employee can only be fired during that time for cause and, after one year, for malfeasance. Currently, Barnstead’s police officers are not protected by a union. He said Barnstead has “experienced police officers” and he can see no immediate issues. Should the negotiations get to that point, discus-

sions of individual employees would be held in a non-public session according to the mandates of the state’s Right-To-Know laws. “We’re talking about organizational issues,” said County Administrator Debra Shackett, who added that there would have to be “a real reason” why an existing Barnstead officer wouldn’t be hired by the Sheriff’s Department. “These are people applying as new-hires,” said Vince. “We would like to waive the probationary period.” “We can talk about that,” replied Wiggin. Shackett added that under the terms of state statute regulating county employees, a person can only be terminated for good cause. One specific sticking point is Barnstead has six full-time employees and Wiggin has said he can only hire four of them, including one sergeant-supervisor. “If this were my town, I’d want some protection for my people,” said Tetreault who lives in Epsom. Preston and Glassman also said the Budget Committee will want some reassurances that the Sheriff’s Department won’t create a budget into which it would have no input or oversight. “We need some assurances for the town’s people regarding accountability,” Glassman said while Preston suggested some kind of clause in the contract that would create an incentive plan to return any unspent money to Barnstead. Tetreault mentioned that for years Durham subcontracted its fire services from the University of New Hampshire and any unspent money went toward the next year’s contract. Shackett replied that County Finance Director Glenn Waring’s initial suggestion was to create a Barnstead sub-department with its own budget for local accountability. “We can provide the data without a problem but there could be a problem if they want to vote on it,” she said. see next page

Legitimacy of Barber Pole petition for ‘no wake’ zone again challenged By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

TUFTONBORO — Less than two weeks before a scheduled public hearing on a petition to designate the Barber Pole channel on Lake Winnipesaukee a “no wake” zone” a resident has challenged the qualifications of the petitioners and asked the New Hampshire Department of Safety (DOS) to postpone or cancel the hearing. In April, Thomas Hilbink, who owns property on Little Birch Island, submitted the petition, ostensibly signed by at least 25 residents or property owners of Tuftonboro to the DOS. DOS scheduled a hearing on Saturday, July 30, beginning at noon, in the Tiuftonboro Meeting House on Route 109-A. Soon afterwards, George Elkins of Foxwood Way in Mirror Lake Estates requested a copy of the petition and last week claimed that because some signatories were not qualified residents of Tuftonboro and another signed twice, the petition lacks the required number of legal signatures. The challenge echoes what occurred a year ago when an order imposing a “no wake zone” was issued only to be later rescinded. Residents petitioned last May, a hearing was held on July 21 and the order was issued on July 30. However, the order was withfrom preceding page “The Budget Committee is going to have to go along,” Wiggin said, adding that if Barnstead’s voters want to do it then all is good but they have to agree with the proposal. Glassman asked Wiggin what benefits would accrue to the Sheriff’s Department should the plan go forward and Wiggin said a Barnstead substation would save taxpayers in general money for process serving while improving efficiency in technology and expertise. “For me, it’s a lot of work,” Wiggin said. “but at the same time, when I talk to my counterparts (in the

drawn after DOS upheld a claim that some of the petitioners were neither residents nor taxpayers of Tuftonboro. Upon receiving the latest challenge, Curtis Duclos, a hearings examiner at DOS, informed Hilbink and Elkins that the hearing would be held as scheduled. However, he said that the challenge to the petition would be the first order of business, explaining that he would ask Elkins to state his case and allow Hilbink to offer a response. “If I am able to issue a ruling at that time, I will,” wrote Duclos, who added “but, if not, I will reserve decision on the motion and

issue a ruling whether or no to proceed with public commentary.” The Barber Pole stretches for about 2,000 feet — about twice the length of the Weirs Channel — from the southeastern tip of Little Birch Island, off the mouth of Orchard Cove, to where the eastern shoreline of Cow Island recedes to the west. Between the buoys to the west and the shore to the east, the channel is about 390 feet wide. Petitions for a “no wake zone” at the Barber Pole failed in 1988, 1997, 2008 and again last year

OBAMA from page 2 est nation on earth. The White House made clear Obama still opposes a short-term extension of the debt limit on the order of 30 days or more on the grounds that would just punt the problem. He reiterated that views in his meetings with lawmakers, a Democrat familiar with the talks said. An aide to Boehner, R-Ohio, said the Republican leaders and the president will continue to talk, but no meeting had been scheduled. Those familiar with the talks spoke on condition

of anonymity to disclose details of the private discussions at the White House. All sides were keeping information tight as time slips by and negotiations grow sensitive. The latest talks centered on what it will take to muster enough votes from both parties to muscle legislation through the House and Senate and raise the national debt limit. Congressional leaders say they want to prevent default, but they are far from agreed on how. The divided-by-party nature of Obama’s negotiations underscored his need to get a bottom line from Democrats in both chambers and the leaders of the Republican-run House. His challenge with fellow Democrats is to persuade them to accept changes to the popular entitlement programs of Medicare and Social Security. With Republicans, Obama is slamming into opposition from conservatives who refuse to consider tax increases. Obama wants a mixed approach of higher taxes on the wealthy and spending cuts that share the pain. “There is still time to do something significant,” Carney said, urging compromise. Realistically, though, the deadline for agreement is this week, not next week, given the time needed to craft, debate, pass and work out possible differences in legislation.

What the debt limit battle is all about It’s hard to keep up with all the arguments and proposals in the debt limit struggle. But what’s at stake is fundamental. The bedrock issue is whether we should have a larger and more expensive federal government. Over many years, federal spending has averaged about 20-percent of gross domestic product. The Obama Democrats have raised that to 24 or 25-percent. And the president’s budget projects that that percentage will stay the same or increase far into the future. In the process, the national debt as a percentage of gross domestic product has increased from a manageable 40-percent in 2008 to 62-percent this year and an estimated 72-percent in 2012. And it’s headed to the 90-percent level that economists Kenneth Rogoff and Carmen Reinhart have identified as the danger point, when governments face fiscal collapse. This is a level of spending as a share of the economy Americans haven’t seen since World War II. It seems more like Europe than like the America we have known. President Obama insisted in his somber press conference Friday that he is willing to reduce federal spending from these levels. But he remained vague on specifics and intransigent in his demand that any debt limit deal include “revenue,” which translated into English means tax increases. Mainstream media have pummeled Republicans for pushing spending cuts and refusing to support tax increases in connection with raising the debt limit. But Republicans had a mandate from the voters in November 2010 to advance such policies. In contrast, it’s not at all clear that voters in November 2008 gave Obama and the Democrats a mandate to increase non-defense discretionary spending by 24-percent (84-percent if you count the stimulus package) in 2009 and 2010. In negotiations on the debt limit, Obama has fenced off several programs from any cuts at all. One is Obamacare, even though majorities in polls continue to favor its repeal. Another is, astonishingly, the $53-billion he wants to spend on high-speed rail projects. To call highspeed rail a “boondoggle,” as does House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, is to engage in considerable understatement. These projects include $715-million for construction of 100 miles of track between the small towns of Borden and Corcoran

in California’s Central Valley. They include a train from Iowa City, Iowa, that will take longer to get to Chicago than already existing bus service and a train from Minneapolis to Duluth, Minn., that will average 69 miles per hour — about what you could average on the parallel Interstate 35. Obama has rhapsodized about the pleasure of walking to a train station and taking a high-speed rail trip to another city. But the great majority of Americans don’t live within an easy drive of a train station. He has called high-speed rail an “investment” in cutting-edge technology. But it’s hardly cuttingedge: Japan debuted its bullet train in 1964, and France inaugurated its TGV in 1981. As for investment, Oxford professor Bent Flyvbjerg analyzed results from dozens of rail projects in 20 countries over the last 70 years. He found that 75-percent ended up costing at least 24-percent over projections and 25-percent exceeded projections by more than 60-percent. No wonder the governors of Wisconsin, Ohio and Florida have turned down federal money for rail projects that parallel interstate highways. They realize that their taxpayers would get stuck for inevitable cost overruns and operating deficits. A high-speed rail line might make sense in the densely populated Northeast corridor between Washington and Boston, and as a Washingtonian who travels frequently to Manhattan I would love a faster train than the current Acela. But these projects make no sense in most of the rest of America. High-speed rail is not the biggest item in the budget. But it’s emblematic of the Obama Democrats’ theory that government spending can stimulate the economy. That theory has been pretty well demolished by the fact of 9.2-percent unemployment. The clear signal from both economic markets and political polls is that we should cut federal spending back from 25-percent of GDP toward 20-percent. It’s not clear how far the Republicans can move toward this goal in the debt limit battle, or whether they can move any distance at all. But it’s worth trying if only to clarify the choice before voters next year.

Most agree a low tax rate is a way to encourage economic efficiency. That said, some taxation is necessary. The purpose of taxation is to raise the revenues needed by the government. The government shouldn’t spend money it doesn’t have but must raise sufficient revenues to pay for the expenditures authorized. Ronald Reagan raised taxes 12 times. He cut taxes dramatically in his first year in office, but when the deficits rose, he agreed to raise taxes 12 times. Those tax increases included a broad tax-reform bill that eliminated many loopholes and removed many provisions of the tax code that distorted economic incentives. He held to the principle that the government shouldn’t spend money it doesn’t have. It is difficult to grasp how either a political party can simply stamp its feet, pout and decline to meaningfully participate in the process of governing the country. Today the parties seem to be in a very different place than where pragmatism dictates they should be. One party passed legislation that they knew or should have known would likely bankrupt the nation. Multiple wars were being supported

and deficit spending was rampant. Debt had piled up. But they could so pass their agenda of legislation so they did. They did not put our financial house in order. The other party now refuses to fund the legislation passed by the first and can’t repeal it. Both parties are digging in their heels and posturing for the next election. The best interests of the nation are being cut adrift in a sea of partisan bickering related to the elections more than a year away. Both parties are abandoning the responsibility to govern. As we watch this wreck unfold we are left to wonder why we elected politicians lacking the capacity to lead or govern. There is a complete lack of ability to articulate why a position should be implemented. If the situation does not change soon what will be left to win in the next election aside from the election itself? Neither side is explaining with clarity the entirety of the issue. Informed decision making by the electorate is being hobbled not helped. The expression cutting off your nose to spite your own face comes to mind. We deserve better than this. Vote early, vote often. Just my honest opinion. Marc Abear Meredith

I don’t see why we’re subsidizing any of these private enterprises To the editor, On Saturday, July 16 I was happy to read a letter from Bev Bunker which I could fully agree with. It was logical, well reasoned and presented. I hope we can look forward to more such from Bev. On the other hand I have to question the sentiments expressed by Lynn Chong in a letter printed earlier this week. Lynn complains that tax money is being spent by conservatives to de-fund Planned Parenthood. On two counts I say that there is nothing wrong here. First tax money is routinely spent by liberal Democrats to promote their agenda’s, so is it the fact that tax money is being spent for political purposes or just that conservatives are doing it? If both sides are playing by the same set of rules I see no foul. If you want to do something to

taxes by both sides great, count me in. Second, I cannot see where federal tax dollars are even needed by Planned Parenthood or for that matter by any other number of subsidized private enterprises such as big oil company’s and Public Broadcasting for examples. All of these private ventures seem well able to exist, even thrive, without our taxes bloating their budgets. People tend to present the argument that this or that funding of an individual program is just a drop in the bucket of our federal budget and eliminating their favorite program wouldn’t solve the problem. While true, if one considers that there are hundreds of such programs and each only represents just one drop if you put enough drops in that bucket it would be full before you knew it. Steve Earle

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, July 21, 2011 — Page 7

State Senator Jeanie Forrester

The facts about the new state budget It’s hard to believe that we are halfway through the summer! With the legislative session over, I’ve been spending much of my time out in District 2 — walking in parades, attending Old Home Days, meeting with selectboards, honoring Eagle Scouts, and responding to constituents’ concerns. The Northern Pass electric power transmission project and the future of the woodburning biomass plants have also been a priority. During these weeks since the budget passed and became law, much has been written. For some folks this budget, which passed by overwhelming majorities in the Senate and House, did not go far enough. For others, the same budget – allowed into law by Governor Lynch – was too drastic and cut too deeply. These viewpoints, and the debates that have followed, are crucial to our democracy; and our ability to continue having debates is a main reason our nation was recently able to celebrate its 235th birthday. Still, I was disappointed that one of my colleagues chose to use the Independence Day holiday to argue that the new budget is unpatriotic and crafted based on personal interests versus the public good. That kind of rhetoric is not productive and I believe our citizens deserve better. You deserve the facts. Fact: We began this budget season facing an $800-million deficit. Fact: Over the past four years state government spending grew by about 24-percent when our economy was stalling and unemployment was rising. Fact: Our state budget was out of balance based on millions of dollars in bonding (borrowing) used to pay for operating expenses over the last two years. Fact: $465-million in federal stimulus funds were used over the last two years to balance our budget and provide funding for the departments of Education and Transportation and would be not be available in the next budget. Given these realities, Senate and House budget writers got to work making the tough decisions necessary to build a balanced budget and, at the same time, remained focused on helping those least able to help themselves. We worked to restore funding in some areas where Governor Lynch had cut, such as for the developmentally disabled and the Healthy Kids program. The governor led with cuts to special education funding, also known as catastrophic aid. My Senate colleagues and I restored funds to this vital service to continue the funding formula in use today. The governor also initiated cuts to the CHINS (Children in Need of Services) program and the Legislature restored funding to the most vulnerable population.

Across state government, we asked departments and agencies to strive for 4 to - 6-percent less funding for the FY2012 budget. In many cases, this meant cutting or shrinking programs and reducing staff. Budget constraints also challenged the Legislature and various departments to consider reforms to reduce costs while maintaining or improving services. For example, through Managed Medicaid we will join over 30 other states in implementing a coordinated approach to health care delivery that will improve care while saving over $30-million. Make no mistake, there were areas where we wished we could do more — like funding uncompensated care at our New Hampshire hospitals, but the revenues were not there. You may recall the governor initiated cuts to the uncompensated care fund by 25-percent and called for a moratorium on hospital construction. We laid out a plan to fund uncompensated care should revenues come in higher than expected. In her article, my Senate colleague said our state budget should reflect the beliefs and goals of our citizens, and I think this one does. State government should be held to the same standards that the average New Hampshire family lives by — living within their means, and that is what this budget does. We crafted this budget based on months of hearings and meetings, hundreds of hours of public input and debate, and multiple sessions on the House and Senate floor. It is based on realistic revenue projections that received bi-partisan support. This budget represents what we believe to be in the best interests of the state, our taxpayers, and our most vulnerable citizens, given the revenues projected. It is in line with the promises we made to voters and in keeping with the oath we took when we came into office. We accept that everyone may not agree with every line of this budget – and we look forward to the continuing discussion – but I can assure you there is nothing unpatriotic about a balanced budget that cares for those who need it most while creating conditions that will ensure this state continues to lead the nation out of this recession. The simple truth is we cannot continue to spend more than we take in. If you remember one thing, remember that is exactly what this budget does. As always, I want to hear from you. If you have a concern you’d like to share, an event you’d like me to attend, or a problem you think I might be able to help with, please call or e-mail.

LETTERS We are a law abiding nation & Bush & Cheney should be in prison To the editor, The New York Times recently reported 600,000 civilians casualties in Iraq attributed to the American bombing and invasion of that country. We, the United States, as a people and nation, are responsible for the tragic loss of life in this fake war. We failed to justify an attack on a poor and divided nation we claimed (without substantial proof) intended to use (non-existent) weapons against us. We listened to excuses from a president (George W. Bush) who promoted his phony charges from coast-to-coast. As in Vietnam, we invaded a nation without a creditable military force and killed everyone who opposed our presence there. Aware of the information, Christian churches, of many denominations, failed to speak out against the brutality and killing of Iraqi people. This represented a drastic failure on the part of those who guide our religious lives. The military was not guilty in any way for carrying out their orders. They suffered the loss of 4,200 brave men who did what they were told to do. We can truly blame ourselves and our legal

representatives in Washington for letting the president get away with this atrocity. He proved, in all his decisions concerning the war to be a man without conscience, without a shred of morality. In his recent book he again justified the using of torture on political prisoners suspected to be (so-called) terrorists. During the term of the Iraqi war, President George W. Bush broke every domestic and international law that stood in his way of punishing the Iraqi people. Again, the country stood by without a mummer of protest. Many thought this war was in retaliation for the events of 9/11. It’s a sad commentary on the psyche of the average citizen. If we are a law-abiding nation, as I know we are, President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney, should be in prison for crimes against humanity as proscribed in the International Agreement of the Geneva Conference. As we know, “No man is above the law.” Please, be a voice for peace! Call 202-456-1111 to speak to the Capitol and express your valued opinion. Leon Albushies Gilford

You really think J. Edgar Hoover & G. Gordon Liddy were liberals? To the editor, I’d like to drop a line in response to Ed Chase’s letter. Mr. Chase, if you’ll think back a little bit, there were others who chose to go by first initial and then middle name:

J. Edgar Hoover. G. Gordon Liddy, to name a couple. And these people were certainly not liberals. Al Finn Meredith

LETTERS Kansas charges Planned Parenthood committed 23 felony crimes To the editor, Lynn Rudmin Chong is continuing her pro-abortion crusade. In her latest letter to the local papers, one might come away with the idea that the Kansas Republicans and the Koch brothers are the evil-doers and Planned Parenthood is the poor victim. As usual with Ms. Chong, distortion and out of context comments dominate her writings. There are any numbers of readily available articles that provide information, which bring more substance to the issue she raised. First, Ms. Chong failed to mention a few facts that might influence readers away from her pro-abortion stance. To begin, Planned Parenthood is suing the governor, Republican Sam Brownback, for diverting federally allocated funds away from Planned Parenthood and to state health agencies. This action is a result of a prior in-depth investigation into Planned Parenthood’s abortion practices, in which the state charges that the organization violated the law 107 times and committed 23 felonies. Planned Parenthood has spent over two years seeking to discredit the investigation and prevent the findings from being presented in court. Ms. Chong also failed to mention that the Kansas Legislature, both House and Senate, passed the legislation denying the funds to Planned Parenthood by an overwhelming three to one margin. As to the Koch brothers and the fact that the state hired the same law firm to represent Governor Brownback as

is used by the Koch’s business, a little light is needed. First, Koch enterprises is a family owned business, created on the genius of its founders and built on the business acumen of the founder’s and their offspring. What drives the left absolutely daffy is that the business/family records are private (because the business is wholly owned by the Koch family, it is not publicly traded). Estimates as to how many billions they are worth are just that, estimates! Chong does her best to demonize them simply because the governor has chosen to use the same law firm as they use, and she bemoans the fact that it will add costs to the Kansas taxpayers. Her claim that poor little old Planned Parenthood has to rely on some free pro bono legal service from a couple of un-named D.C. attorneys brings tears to my eyes. Remember, Planned Parenthood is suing the state/governor over the funding issue, and the state is defending its position, which was brought forth through legislative rigor, not judicial whim. Perhaps Ms. Chong can study these words of Thomas Jefferson on the right to life issue, “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” I happen to think that those words are right up there among the most beautiful words ever written. Let’s not destroy them. Bob Meade Laconia

We have great people in Moultonborough; especially the Lions To the editor, I just want to say Moultonborough is a great town and has the nicest people you want to know and meet. The people here in the Lions Club are

the best. They are loosing people left and right. They are moving and some are passing away. These are a group of people who work and stick together. They help everyone that needs them. I guess the town now knows that the Lions Club building should stay where it is so many people can still use it for Weight Watchers, Meals on Wheels, special events, concerts,and the Lion Club dinners. The town should leave it where it is and NEVER make it a ball or soccer field. I do not think they will be playing any ball anytime soon. Kudos to the seniors of Moultonborough and the people of the Lions Club. We have a wonderful community here in Moultonborough. N.H. is a beautiful state and we are lucky to live here.

LETTERS Awarding World Series advantage based on All-Star game is crazy To the editor, Is Major League Baseball (MLB) crazy? Why on earth should the AllStar game carry such weight in the MLB season? Should the Red Sox make the World Series, this loss could prove devastating to their chances for victory. With the American League’s (AL) loss in the game last week, the AL conceded home field advantage in the World Series to the National League. Does this hurt the Sox’s chances of surviving into October? No. But, if they get there, this crazy system works against them. In the three other major sports, the All-Star Game carries zero importance, other than treating players to a well-deserved break. Before the Pro-Bowl’s (NFL) new date, set after the Super Bowl rather than in the week prior, many of the game’s biggest stars chose not to attend for fear that they would suffer an injury rendering them ineffective for the upcoming, relevant regular season game. In the NHL and NBA, the game serves as a chance for the best players to showcase their skills without fear of sacrificing some greater prize, like the home-field advantage that the MLB offers. Some argue that this is how these games should be played, while others feel that they should carry a

greater importance, so all able-bodied players will attend, and play. The MLB shows shades of both. The game is important, but the managers are obliged to play as much of the 35-man roster as possible. This, some would claim, renders the game ineffective, as the best players don’t play all the time, and home-field advantage for an entire league can be lost for one player’s mistake. The Sox helped their own cause with Adrian Gonzalez’s 4th inning home run, giving the AL a 1-0 lead, which was soon vanquished as Prince Fielder, a fellow Home-Run derby participant, jacked a three-run blast off of Texas’ CJ Wilson. The NL never looked back, winning the game 5-1, and clinching home-field advantage in the World Series. Many people hold the belief that, like in the other major sports, home-field advantage should be awarded to the team with the best regular season record. This would certainly be a more fair route to go, as the team, not the individual in the All-Star game, could decide it for themselves. The MLB’s ludicrous system could end the Red Sox hopes at glory this fall, and desperately to be changed. Jake Barton Plymouth

If you cannot stand up & be heard then learn to suffer in silence To the editor, Wake up seniors. You are not dead yet. It is time to fight back to protect what is rightfully ours. If a senator or congressman from New Hampshire sides with the lowering of our Social Security benefits, vote him/her out of office and pass a law that they cannot accept the currant severence package they voted themselves. If you cannot stand up and be heard, then suffer in silence as I for one am tired of all

your complaining and doing nothing about it. Get on the bandwagon, and get out there and talk to your neighbors. Collect the signatures and pass them on to your representative and MAKE him/her sign a paper saying they got them. DO NOT TRUST that your representative will do the right thing by you unless they sign for the signatures. Bev Buker Gilford

For years, students hoping to become a physician’s assistant, pharmacist or nurse have received real-world training at LRGHealthcare facilities, which include Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia, Franklin Regional Hospital, Laconia Clinic and various practices throughout the region. “We’ve expanded it to a new level with medical students,” Racicot said. LRGHealthcare CEO Tom Clairmont was contacted a few years ago by the University of New England (UNE), Racicot explained. The university was looking for an additional location for its medical students to spend their third year of the four-year program in its College of Osteopathic Medicine, located at the university’s Biddeford, Maine campus. “It seemed there was enough interest to take eight students for their third year,” said Racicot, who has served as the clinical coordinator for the program. “It’s gone well. It’s gone very well.” Osteopathic medicine is differentiated from conventional, allopathic medicine, in that osteopathic doctors consider the body holistically and seek to promote the body’s ability to keep itself healthy, placing special

Graduates of osteopathic medical schools carry an DO after their names, as opposed to the more familiar MD but both are addressed more simply as “doctor”. The first group of UNE students arrived in the summer of 2009 and stayed for a year. The second group finished its year at LRGHealthcare earlier this month, the third group will begin in August. During their year, the students spend a “rotation” observing a different area of health care: family practice, internal medicine, surgery, obstetricsgynecology, pediatrics, psychiatry and rural medicine. During their year in Laconia, the students stay in a house owned by the hospital, which allows them free shelter within a block of LRGH. According to the second-year students, LRGHealthcare has quickly become the first choice of UNE students looking for a site to spend their third year. The first group of students who returned from Laconia gave rave reviews of the program, specifically that they enjoyed the hands-on learning, community setting, ability to explore emergency medicine and proximity to home. The second year students, interviewed as their year came to a close, reported a similarly positive review. The students, who all came from Northeastern states, said their year in see next page

In court filing, insurance company claims Baldi didn’t meet fire prevention standards of her policy By Gail OBer


LACONIA — The insurer for the historic Weirs Beach restaurant and motel that burned in a spectacular early-morning fire last September said the hotel owners didn’t abide by all of the terms of its insurance policy. In its response to a request by the Wide Open Restaurant, Hotel & Saloon, LLC to the Belknap County Superior Court to order the insurance underwriter to pay the damage claim filed against it, Lloyd’s London said the automatic sprinkler system in the building did not comply with the “protective safeguards” demanded by the policy. Lloyd’s attorney also said owner Brandi Baldi “has not complied with the duties in the event of loss or damage” clause in the policy. “There is no coverage if the damage did not occur in the manner reported by the insured,” wrote Debra Mayotte of Manchester’s Desmarais, Ewing & Johnston, PLLC that is representing Lloyds. “We will not pay for loss or damage caused by or resulting from fire if, prior to the fire, you: 1. Knew of any suspension or impairment in any protective safeguard listed in the schedule about and failed to notify us of that fact; or 2. Failed to maintain any protective safeguard listed in the schedule above, and over which you had control, in complete working order,” wrote Mayotte. In previous statements, Baldi has said she and her crew were closing down the restaurant around from preceding page

having students around. Racicot said the 40 practitioners working with students must be ready to explain and defend their decisions and strategies. “It sets an academic tone,” he said. “The people that have been involved have really enjoyed it.” The experience has been positive enough, said Racicot, that LRGHealthcare is “definitely exploring” the possibility of becoming a site for DartmouthHitchcock’s emergency medicine residency program. “Especially in the summer, we could use them.” Residency is the term for the post-graduate period, usually three of four years, when new doctors receive specialty training while working on the staff of so-called teaching hospitals. After leaving Laconia, the UNE students will have one more year of medical school, then they’ll seek a residency program. Racicot noted that a peripheral benefit of the program is that some graduates of the school might look favorably at an opportunity to return to Laconia. “Some of those students might come back. If that occurs, we’d be thrilled,” he said. “It’s been a win-win,” Racicot concluded. “It elevates everyone to be teaching.”

Laconia has afforded them a real-world taste of the career in front of them. “Because it’s a small community, you really get to know all the doctors,” said S. Luke Brown. “Delivering babies, then seeing them in pediatrics, you feel like you’re a part of a community.” Z. Trevor Ritz marked one day at the hospital when a woman stopped him in the hallway to thank him. He had been in the delivery room, observing as the woman’s daughter gave birth. “She appreciated I was there and everything went well. We’ve left a positive impact.” “You get this connection to the community, the doctors and the hospital,” said Jennifer Cook, who had a similar experience to Ritz’s. Racicot said patients have been supportive of the students’ presence. Students can spend more time than busier doctors can with patients, answering questions and explaining procedures. “The feedback I’m getting from patients is it’s an added level of patient service.” Patients aren’t the only ones who benefit from

9 p.m. the evening before the 3 a.m. blaze when the alarm system sounded. She said she had to call the Laconia Fire Department because, for a reason she didn’t realize until it sounded, the system didn’t ring automatically at the Weirs Fire Station that is less than 1,000 yards down the road. N.H. State Fire Marshal reports show the department responded and said the alarm was triggered by something, possibly a mattress, knocking against one of the detectors on the second floor. Baldi said one of the second floor rooms appeared to have been occupied by a squatter but no one was found in the building that wasn’t supposed to be there. Firefighters were unable to reset the system and the the portion of the fire marshal’s report that has been made public indicates the fire started on the second floor and spread rapidly up through the 100-year-old building. The bulk of the report has not been released because the state said the investigation is ongoing and my result in criminal charges. Baldi and firefighters agreed the automatic sprinkler system on the first floor worked and the damage to the bottom floor was largely the water from the sprinkler and firefighters efforts. In related action, Baldi filed an appeal of Laconia District Court Judge Jim Carroll’s order to demolish the gutted remains. To date, the city has not filed a response but last week City Manager Scott Myers said the city was still negotiating with Baldi about the demolition.

LACONIA — Firefighters from across the city and the town of Gilford converged on the downtown headquarters of Laconia Savings Bank soon after 6:15 p.m. yesterday after Steve Loughlin, a commercial lender working on the third floor, reported a smell of burning and roomful of smoke. While crews surrounded the building and raised the aerial ladder to the rooftop, firefighers went

inside in search of the source of the fire. Within a half-hour they found what they were looking for — a burned out fax machine in the human resources department. “We asked for money for a new fax machine in the budget, Loughlin quipped, “but the request was denied.”

ROAD WORK from page one Street, and the reconfiguration of the intersection at Oak Street and Main Street. Moynihan said that next week the Water Department will begin laying a new water main on Oak Street between Pleasant Street and Main Street, which is expected to take three weeks. Last year, following much discussion, the City Council agreed to upgrade the intersection at Oak Street and Main Street, which has been a source of concern since a fatal accident in November, 2006 drew attention to the operation and timing of the traffic signals. According to the police, there were 11 accidents at the intersection between January 2006 and March 2008, including one involving a police cruiser, while residents who live nearby reported many more near misses. The project is estimated to cost $187,000 and was funded in the 2009-2010 city budget. Tom Golde of Golde Planning and Design, Inc. of Concord, who designed and engineered the project, also conducted

the initial study of the intersection. He found that the real problem at the intersection is the “ancient signals.” The signal responds only to the traffic on Oak Street, remaining green for vehicles traveling north and south on Main Street until it is interrupted by a vehicle moving east or west. Since there is frequent but light traffic on Oak Street, the signal provides equal time to traffic from both streets and in both directions, despite the much greater volume of traffic on Main Street. The improvements will include replacement of the traffic signals, together with pre-emption equipment for emergency vehicles and a new control cabinet, as well as new mast arms and pedestrian signals. At the same time, a center lane enabling nothbound traffic on Main Street to turn left on to Oak Street, a maneuver that has been prohibited, will be added to the junction. Moynihan said that Golde took it upon himself to redesign the intersection as a roundabout, which see next page

POOL from page 2 released the preliminary findings of an investigation into the drowning and what happened during the two days that Joseph’s body lay at the bottom of 12 feet of milky water. Investigators said a review of surveillance video showed Joseph going down a water slide into the pool’s deep end, surfacing briefly and bumping into a child before going under. The entire sequence lasted only six seconds. The video showed no signs of Joseph struggling, investigators said. “Water clarity was the primary factor in preventing lifeguards from being alerted to the drowning and from subsequently detecting Ms. Joseph at the bottom of the pool after she submerged,” said Carl Rudge, chief park ranger for the agency and lead investigator. Rudge said one of four lifeguards on duty at the time of the accident was supervising the water slide, but he noted that department rules require that two lifeguards monitor the slide and that diving blocks be closed while the slide is in use — something that also was not done. Investigators stopped short of blaming the lifeguard near the slide, saying her attention may have been diverted by a group of other swimmers. A short time after Joseph went under, officials closed the deep end of the pool because of the cloudy water but allowed the rest of it to remain open, another violation of protocol, investigators said. Joseph, a native of Haiti and mother of five, worked as a hotel housekeeper in Newport, R.I. Her body did not surface until the evening of June 28, more than two days after she drowned, when youths jumping a fence for an after-hours swim discovered it. Massachusetts pools are expected to be crowded over the next several days as a heat wave that has gripped much of the nation’s midsection moves eastward. Lambert said he was confident the state-run facilities are safe. “This tragic event leaves heavy hearts in an agency that prides itself on its ability to provide high quality, safe, recreational opportunities,” he said. Investigators said they were unable to corroborate a report that the boy who Joseph bumped into told two lifeguards about the incident. The boy’s mother told the Boston Herald that her son told lifeguards that Joseph did not resurface. She also said a lifeguard told the boy that they would check, but never did. from preceding page would eliminate the necessity of traffic signals and, since all traffic would move in the same direction, decrease the risk of serious accidents. He said that the design was appealing, but was abandoned because it required the acquisition of private property to expand the right-of-way. Moynihan anticipates that the scheduled work will cost in the neighborhood of $800,000 to $900,000.

The pool’s entire staff was placed on administrative leave after the body was found and officials closed all 24 of the state’s other deep-water swimming pools for inspection. All were later reopened except for the one in Fall River, which was drained. Five similar water slides at other state-run pools have been closed while officials review procedures, Lambert said. Fall River Mayor William Flanagan told The Associated Press that on Wednesday he fired a city health inspector who checked on the pool two days after the drowning, while Joseph’s body was still at the bottom and other people continued to swim in it. Flanagan said the inspector should have taken action to protect other swimmers after noting that the water was cloudy. A second inspector who had been placed on administrative leave was reinstated after it was determined that she had not seen the water, Flanagan said. Protocols require that the grates at the bottom of pools always be visible, but a review of the video showed the water began to cloud up on Saturday — for reasons that remain unclear — and continued to be murky for the next few days, the state investigation found. In the future, water clarity at all pools will be tested using a 5-inch black and white disk that must be visible at the bottom of a pool before it can open, Lambert said. INTEREST from page 2 it to congressional committees to fill in the details later. But supporters say it provides a framework to simplify the tax code, making it easier for businesses and individuals to comply while eliminating incentives to game the system. “I think this is an attempt to find a middle ground on taxes that emphasizes keeping rates low and broadening the base as much as possible, and I think that’s a very positive aspect of it,” said Eugene Steuerle, a former Treasury official who worked on the last tax reform package that passed Congress, in 1986. Coupled with spending cuts, the plan would reduce deficits by nearly $4 trillion over the next decade. While Obama and senators from both parties lauded the plan as a possible breakthrough in their negotiations, some congressional leaders said the plan lacks details and could produce much bigger tax increases than advertised. The Republican staff of the House Budget Committee issued a critique saying the revenue increase could exceed $2 trillion over the next decade, when compared with current tax policy. The plan would simplify the tax code by reducing the number of tax brackets from six to three, lowering the top rate from 35 percent to somewhere between 23 percent and 29 percent. That could provide a windfall for wealthy taxpayers because the 35 percent tax bracket currently applies to taxable see next page

from preceding page income above $379,150. To help pay for lower rates, the plan would reduce popular tax breaks for mortgage interest, health insurance, charitable giving and retirement savings. Other tax breaks would be spared, including the $1,000-perchild tax credit and the earned income tax credit, which helps the working poor stay out of poverty. The alternative minimum tax, which was enacted in 1969 to make sure that high-income families pay at least some income tax, would be repealed. The tax was never indexed for inflation, so Congress routinely patches it each year — at an annual cost of about $70 billion — to prevent it from hitting more than 20 million middle-income families. About 35 million households claimed the mort-

gage interest deduction in 2009, and about 36 million households claimed deductions for charitable contributions, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation, the congressional scorekeeper on taxes. The Gang of Six plan does not specify how the tax breaks would be trimmed. Democrats have several proposals that would restrict wealthy families’ use of the breaks, while preserving them for most lowand middle-income taxpayers. Such a plan would offset rate cuts for high-income families by limiting their ability to take advantage of various tax breaks. For example, current law allows homeowners to deduct the interest they pay on home mortgages of up to $1 million. One proposal would lower the limit to $500,000 and exclude mortgage interest on second homes.

HEAT from page 3 big health concerns,” because fewer people have air conditioning or fans, Jacks said. “Heat is the No. 1 killer out of all weather hazards.” What’s more, because of the humidity, even nighttime brings little relief. Humidity makes the weather feel far hotter because the body, which cools itself by perspiring, has to work harder when the air is already moist. “It’s harder to cool down,” said Jannie Ferrell, a National Weather Service meteorologist. The sweltering weather served to make life even more uncomfortable for people displaced by the flooding of the Souris River in Minot, N.D., where about 150 people are living in a tent city outside the an ice rink. “The RVs all have air conditioners, but the tent folks have been moving their tents around trying to find shade,” said Chuck Emery, manager of the Maysa Arena. The rink’s air-conditioned basement has been converted into a kennel for campers’ pets. Although heat domes are not rare, this one is unusually large and long-lasting. It began three days ago and may persist for seven to 10 days in some locations, meteorologists said. On Wednesday, it had begun moving out of Texas and the Dakotas, headed east and northeast. By Thursday, temperatures in Washington were forecast to hit 100, and the heat could linger for days along the Atlantic seaboard. Thunderstorms can develop around the perimeter of the dome — called the “ring of fire” — bringing temporary relief to some areas. But this dome is so large that the heat rebuilds quickly, said Kevin Birk, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Illinois. No widespread deaths have been reported, but the heat sent dozens of people to hospitals and dis-

rupted many routine activities. As hot air blew over the cooler waters of Lake Michigan on Tuesday, a thick fog shrouded many of Chicago’s beaches. Lifeguards had to turn away swimmers because they could not see beyond the water’s edge. A Veterans Affairs hospital in Fargo, N.D., had to reschedule more than 50 surgeries after cooling systems struggled to keep up with the weather. Some floors and other surfaces became wet, potentially compromising the sterile environment needed to operate. In Detroit, more than 70 schools without air conditioning were to close Wednesday afternoon. Power outages and mechanical problems closed several others. Relief is on the way. Cooler air should begin moving into the Plains states this weekend, as a strong pool of air from the jet stream begins to push hot air out of the way in the Dakotas and into Minnesota before making its way east. By Monday, temperatures in many places will drop into the mid-80s, although cities in the East could still be sweltering. “This is really an exceptional event, I think it’s fair to say ... in terms of scope and duration,” Jacks said. Back in Kansas City, the construction crew has been starting around 5:30 a.m. to get as much work done before the hottest hours of the day. Crew member Dan Danuser said he guzzles plenty of water while on the job. When he gets home, he retreats to a dark room. “It’s hard with all the asphalt and concrete around,” Danuser said. “It’s different when you are out on grass and open areas. But when you get in town, there is no breeze, and the asphalt just makes everything hotter.”

Ellsbury homers twice as Red Sox beat Orioles, 4-0 BALTIMORE (AP) — Poor Jacoby Ellsbury. He won’t get to bully the Baltimore Orioles again until September. Ellsbury hit two solo homers, Andrew Miller and three relievers combined on a two-hitter, and the Boston Red Sox defeated the Orioles 4-0 Wednesday. Adrian Gonzalez had four hits for the Red Sox, who took two of three from Baltimore to conclude their sixth consecutive winning road trip. Boston also went 2-1 at Tampa Bay. Ellsbury put the Red Sox up 1-0 in the third inning and 3-0 in the seventh. The 27-year-old outfielder has a 29-game hitting streak against the Orioles, batting .445 with six homers and 20 RBIs over that span. “It’s just one of those things,” Ellsbury said, “I really don’t know what it is. I like hitting here.” Fortunately for Baltimore, the two AL East teams don’t meet again until Sept. 19 in Boston. Lest the Orioles think Ellsbury saves his best for them, it should be noted that he’s batting .316 with 15 homers and 54 RBIs overall.

“We shouldn’t feel like he’s picking on us,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “He’s having a great year, and he seems to be even better against us. You could ask the same question about (Josh) Reddick and Gonzalez.” Reddick went 2 for 3 to lift his career batting average against Baltimore to .400, but on this day, Ellsbury was the catalyst. Both drives came off Jake Arrieta (9-7), who has yielded a team-high 19 long balls in 20 starts. Ellsbury’s only other two-homer game was on April 22, 2008, against the Los Angeles Angels. Miller (4-1) allowed two hits over 5 2-3 innings in a wild but effective performance. The 6-foot-7 lefthander issued a career-high six walks and had only one perfect inning. Still, Miller took a no-hitter into the fifth. Facing Craig Tatum with one out, he threw a pitch that floated three feet wide of the plate and rolled to the backstop. Two pitches later, Tatum grounded a single up the middle.

Wife of Patriots’ owner dies from cancer at age 68 FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Myra Kraft, the wife of New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and a hard-working philanthropist dedicated to numerous causes, died Wednesday. She was 68. She died Wednesday morning after a battle with cancer, the NFL team said in a statement. “We are all heartbroken,” the statement said, adding that the philanthropic community has “suffered a great loss.” Myra Hiatt Kraft was an active and powerful force in her family’s foundation and served on the boards of varied community and charitable organizations. She managed the Robert and Myra Kraft Family Foundation and was president of the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation, which contributed millions of dollars to charities in the United States and Israel. In 1995, she became the first woman to chair the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston, a position she held until 2002. She served the past two years as chair of the board of directors of United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley.

MARRIAGE from page one riage. Those who claim they cannot choose who they fall in love with could make the same argument to justify polygamy, he said. A handful of states and the District of Columbia issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. New York will soon join Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont on that list. But participants in same-sex marriages said they are still discriminated against because they cannot accrue the federal benefits that heterosexual couples receive as a result of marriage. For example, Andrew Sorbo of Connecticut, said that when he retired as a teacher, he had no alternative except to pay for health insurance at a much higher cost that if he could have been covered under his spouse’s plan. He said that the federal law exacts a financial toll and an emotional one. “It’s an insult to our dignity and our sense of equality,” Sorbo said. Witnesses speaking in favor of current law noted that many Democratic lawmakers in the hearing room voted for the Defense of Marriage Act 15 years ago. They said those votes helped make the case that the law was designed to protect traditional marriage rather than to discriminate. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., citing President Abraham Lincoln in explaining why he now supports repeal, said he would rather be right some of the time than wrong all of the time. Tom Minnery, senior vice president of the advocacy group Focus on the Family, argued that children fare best when living with their own married mother and father. He said in his written testimony that new family forms has largely served to diminish the well-being of children, women, men and society at large.

“Myra led by example through her hands on commitment to bettering the communities we serve,” Michael Durkin, president and CEO of that United Way chapter, said in a statement. “While Myra will be deeply missed, her legacy of kindness to all will remain a beacon of hope in trying times.” She also served as chairwoman of the Combined Jewish Philanthropies and was on the board of directors of the American Repertory Theatre, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston, and Brandeis University, where she graduated in 1964. “With her great heart and magnificent spirit, she lived her life in service to those who needed her help,” said Barry Shrage, president of CJP. “Myra loved the land of Israel and the Israeli people and visited as often as she could.” Brandeis president Frederick M. Lawrence, chosen by a search committee on which she served, said, “She was always reaching out to students, faculty and other trustees and served as a model to all of us in so many ways. Myra was not just a philanthropist, she was a humanitarian in both a personal sense and a community sense.” Robert Kraft is chairman of the NFL’s Broadcast Committee and a member of its Labor Committee.

LAKES REGION — New Hampshire author Andy Cutts will sign copies of his new book, “The Penny,” at Innisfree Books in Meredith and Bayswater Books in Center Harbor on Saturday, July 23. Cutts will be at Innisfree between 11 a.m. — 1 p.m. He will make his appearance at Bayswater from 2 — 4 p.m. “The Penny,” for readers age six and up, features illustrations by Vermont artist Katherine Roy and tells the story of a wooden sailboat called Penny, the grandfather who built her, and a grandson who learned dear lessons from both. Cutts grew up spending summers visiting his grandparents at their cottage on Winnipesaukee, where he learned to sail as a young boy. It

Women’s writing workshop to be held in Center Harbor

M O U LT O N B O R OUGH — “Becoming a Woman of Words,” a writing workshop for women presented by the Recreation Department, will be held at Bayswater Bookstore in Center Harbor from 5:30 — 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 27. An evening for women to explore the world of fiction, non-fiction, and journal writing in an effort to find their inner muse, the workshop will be facilitated by Krista Crabtree, a freelance writer and published poet, and Donna Kuethe, a published essayist. Crabtree and Kuethe have been offering writing workshops to children and women for many years. “Becoming a Woman of Words” see next page from preceding page to take specific steps and use positive action to streamline and maximize your credit management policies.” Dunn has more than 20 years of experience in credit and debt collection.

took four years for “The Penny,” which is based on true events, to emerge from a bedtime story first told to Cutts’ young daughter to the beautiful 40-page hardcover that it is today. Finding an illustrator who could capture the essence of “The Penny” was essential, and after a year and a half of searching, Cutts and his daughter were delighted to meet Roy, who graduated with an MFA from Vermont’s Center for Cartoon Studies and has a magical ability to turn paper into water. Her predominantly black and white illustrations have brought Penny to life, while her deliberate use of color enhances the subtext of the narrative.

On its surface, “The Penny” is a timeless story of summer adventures on the water, with risks and rescues the will have the youngest readers reaching for their life jackets. But core themes of loss and renewal, resiliency and rebuilding, offer readers of all ages an inspiring tale of transition and new beginnings. “The Penny” is proud to be printed and bound in New Hampshire and to be sailing into independent booksellers around New England.

The Town recycled 486 tons through NRRA in 2010 or 283 pounds per person per year plus 1,168 tons of MSW. The award was accepted by Justin Leavitt, Solid Waste manager for the Town. “We congratulate Gilmanton for their fantastic recycling and, to Justin personally, for spreading the word and encouraging recycling through the media!” said Michael Durfor, NRRA executive director. The award was presented at NRRA’s 30th Annual Conference and Expo, which featured the Second Annual School Recycling Conference within the NRRA Conference held at the Radisson Hotel Manchester. The Conference & Expo was an opportunity for those interested in recycling and waste reduction to come together to discover new technologies, exchange ideas, share philosophies, and further promote waste reduction efforts.

Neighbors launch environmental group to protect ecology and beauty of lakes Waukewan & Winona NEW HAMPTON — The Waukewan and Winona Protective Association was recently launched to encourage and support long range planning and sound conservation techniques to preserve the ecology, environment, and natural beauty of Lakes Waukewan and Winona. “We organized this association in August, 2009 as a New Hampshire non-profit under the name ‘Friends of Waukewan and Winona,’ but the membership voted to change the name to more accurately reflect our mission,” said Janan Hays, a new Board member. “The Association came into being because, over the last few years, it became apparent to many of us on both lakes that there was a need for an organization whose

mission is the environmental protection of our lakes,” said Deb Corr, another Board member. “Our lakes are fragile treasures and we intend to help protect them by putting environmental concerns above all other issues.” Hays added, “It is our plan for the Waukewan and Winona Protective Association to be an environmental education resource and voice for shore owners on both lakes by assisting with scientific studies and providing education programs as well as disseminating educational materials for shore owners and other interested persons.” The group has created membership and bylaw committees and elected its initial Board of Directors from both lakes.

Pooch Café LOLA

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). All the things you (SET ITAL) should (END ITAL) do seem even more boring, tedious and ordinary than the things you (SET ITAL) have (END ITAL) to do. So you’ll likely rebel and do only what you really want to do. Let the chips fall where they may! SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Sometimes familiarity makes it harder for you to see someone how he or she really is. You compensate for this by actively looking for something positive about a loved one. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll take an artistic approach to your daily business. For instance, you arrange your table like you’re going to paint a still-life picture of it. You’ll bask in appreciation tonight. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It’s hard to say why exactly, but your selfimprovement efforts may annoy other people. You’re better off keeping it on the down low for now, except with your most supportive loved ones. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There’s a situation that is just getting old to you. You won’t have to make a move to change the game, though. This will happen naturally. The problem will simply disappear. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 21). A free and easygoing feeling permeates your personal atmosphere. Obstacles are lifted in August. November kicks off a series of accomplishments. Share your good fortune with others in September, and teach what you know, too. An investment pays off in May. Physical activities bring vitality and success. Capricorn and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 50, 7, 28, 49 and 16.

by Darby Conley

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You may wake up in a lazy, unfocused mood, but you can prevent this from occurring two days in a row. Write a concrete plan for tomorrow, and you’ll wake up in the right frame of mind for major productivity. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Unchecked speech causes problems. Thoughtlessness is dangerous, and so is a distracted mind. Do what you have to do to get centered before you express yourself. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When you are truly a newcomer to a scene, you need things broken down to the most basic elements. Ask questions. Anyone who makes you feel silly for doing so is the wrong teacher for you. CANCER (June 22-July 22). As any good dancer knows, opposing sides can still cooperate with each other. When they do, the result can be more interesting than what comes from people cooperating with others who are already on the same side. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Even when something is completely unfamiliar to you, you are still able to open your mind to the possibility that it exists somewhere in the universe. You’ll thrive creatively because this is how you are. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’re interested in a bigger income because it will allow you more choices. Instead of desiring money, shift your focus. It will make you wealthier when you desire to provide a great value to others. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You don’t have to make drastic changes to improve the quality of your life in a big way. You’ll de-clutter some small part of your world -- like a drawer or closet -- and it will be the gesture that brings good fortune to you.

Loon deaths from lead tackle a grave concern for Loon Preservation Committee

MOULTONBOROUGH — Loon Preservation Committee biologists report that 12 loons died in the summer of 2010 from lead tackle, the highest number of lead deaths ever recorded in New Hampshire. Loon Preservation Committee biolo-

gists collected the first lead-poisoned loon of 2011 on June 2 from Lake Winnipesaukee. If recent trends are any indication, it will not be the last loon to die this summer as a result of ingesting lead fishing tackle. Loons ingest lead by catching fish

Popular ‘Hook n’ Look’ TV show shoots episode in Meredith for broadcast in 2012

MEREDITH — The popular “Hook n’ Look” television show, currently airing nationally on the Versus network, was recently in Meredith to shoot an episode to be broadcast in early 2012. Producer-host Kim Stricker, along with his son Dan and local guide Steve Lucarelli, explored what’s above and below Lake Winnipesaukee’s surface. According to Stricker, they had a very successful and enjoyable fishing

trip, catching and releasing a large number of small mouth bass. Hook n’ Look will broadcast its fifth season in 2012 nationally, making a switch to the Outdoor Channel. Check out the web page http://www. Hook n’ Look currently broadcasts nationally on the Versus network Saturday mornings at 8:00 AM EST as well as Tuesday afternoons at 1:30 PM EST.

that trail a broken length of line, or by striking at tackle as it is trolled or retrieved through the water. They may also ingest sinkers from the lake bottom, mistaking them for stones that they regularly swallow, possibly to aid digestion. Over 60 percent of loons with lead tackle also have a hook, swivel, or fishing line in their gizzards, suggesting that they obtained the lead from current fishing activity instead of picking it off the lake bottom. Loons are present on New Hampshire lakes from late April to November, but the majority of lead deaths (55 percent) occur in just two months — the peak tourism and fishing months of July and August. Loons die approximately two weeks after ingesting a lead object. “Together these results suggest that many, and perhaps most, lead deaths result from current fishing use,” said Harry Vogel, Loon Preservation Committee executive director. “This level of mortality is unsustainable for the New Hampshire loon population.” The high number of lead deaths in 2010 occurred despite legislation restricting the use and sale in New Hampshire of sinkers weighing one ounce or less and jigs less than one inch in length (including the hook). Much of the ongoing loon mortality from lead tackle results from inadequate stan-

dards for lead-headed jigs — as loons regularly ingest jigs greater than one inch in length — and from continued use of illegal sinkers and jigs. Lead fishing tackle is responsible for over half of all adult loon mortalities collected in New Hampshire between 1989 and 2010. The loss of an adult loon may result in the loss of that loon’s nest or chick, as well, further negatively impacting the population. Lead fishing tackle has a greater impact than any other quantifiable factor in reducing the growth of New Hampshire’s loon population. Safe alternatives to lead tackle made of steel, tungsten, tin, limestone, and many other materials are effective and readily available. Alternatives to lead sinkers and jigs may be purchased from many fishing tackle companies. New Hampshire was the first state in the nation to restrict the sale and use of small lead fishing tackle to protect loons. Since then, Maine, Massachusetts, New York, and Vermont have also placed restrictions on lead fishing tackle. “I think that it’s extremely important for anyone who loves the outdoors and is concerned about the conservation of America’s natural treasures to do everything they can to find and use non-toxic alternatives,” said Dr. Mark Pokras, a veterinary pathologist at Tufts University.

Dear Annie: I am worried about my 79-year-old father. My mother died two years ago, and my brother and I regularly see Dad and invite him for dinner and to other events. But he’s still lonely for female companionship. Six months ago, Dad began a relationship with “Corina,” a 33-year-old ex-prostitute with a toddler. Dad says they are in love. We want him to be happy, but we’re worried. Last week, Corina got drunk and hit my father. She’s already been in jail for other reasons in the past, and Dad didn’t want to turn her in. Dad bought Corina a car and let her move in with him. She doesn’t have a job. She’s home with her child all day. Meanwhile, my parents’ house is a mess, and we’ve found cigarette ashes and wine bottles all over. We have spoken to law enforcement and Dad’s doctor. No one can do anything because Dad is in sound mental health, and he refuses to press charges, so no laws are being broken. He’s already given her most of his savings, and now we’re worried he’ll lose his home. What can we do? -- Panicked Siblings Dear Siblings: Draining someone’s bank account can qualify as elder abuse. Try the National Center on Elder Abuse at or the Eldercare Locator ( at 1-800-677-1116 for assistance and suggestions. You and your brother may also want to talk to a lawyer to see if there is a way to transfer ownership of the house and any remaining money to a trust in order to prevent Corina from getting her hands on it. Dear Annie: I recently buried my best friend -- my dog, “Lucky.” But I was the lucky one who was blessed to have this wonderful animal in my life. More than 10 years ago, I saved Lucky from an abusive household, and he never forgot it. This perfect mutt loved

and dedicated his life to me. All that he asked in return were rigorous belly rubs, the occasional treat and the ability to cuddle between my wife and me on the couch. Lucky and I were inseparable, and now that he is gone, I feel as if a part of me has died, too. I miss him terribly, and I can’t imagine this hole in my heart ever being filled. Please tell your readers to give their pets an extra hug when they get home from work this evening and every evening, because one day, it might be too late. -- Missing My Best Friend Dear Missing: Our condolences on the loss of Lucky. You have a lot of love to give, and we hope you will consider adopting another dog. It not only can help fill that hole in your heart, but will also provide a stable home for an animal that surely needs one. Dear Annie: This is in response to the letter from Erik D. Olson advocating healthier meals in school. I thought your readers might enjoy a student’s perspective. I go to a suburban high school and am disgusted by our cafeteria food. I try to eat healthy, but it’s hard because our choices don’t include much in the way of fruits or vegetables, and many students pick fries over an apple. My school offers main dishes that I don’t think qualify -- like nachos, cheese fries and mozzarella cheese sticks. Also, there is the ever-popular chicken patty, slathered in mayonnaise or ranch dressing and accompanied, of course, by French fries. When I brought blackberries to school, several friends asked, “What are those?” I hope our lunches improve, but I cannot accomplish it on my own. Tell your readers to make sure to educate their children and teach them that certain foods are better for their bodies than others. Maybe if we work together, we can improve school lunches across the nation. -- Megan
