Bear leads charge to spend some money on Wyatt Park

Harsh punishment for Penn State NCAA lowers the boom with heavy sanctions; Paterno’s record erased — P. 2

VOL. 13 NO. 35




LACONIA — On July 5, the Evangelical Baptist Church of Laconia purchased the former campus of the former Our Lady of the Lakes Catholic Church campus in Lakeport for $700,000. Evangelical Church Building Commit-

tee Chair David Provan said the purchase has been a long time in the making and the church leaders are thrilled with the development. “This is a time of celebration for us,” he said yesterday. “The buildings will give us a tool to better reach into the communities.” The three Catholic churches in the city


LACONIA — “The Weirs has always been about music booming across the lake,” declared Davida Cook, the owner of the Heat restaurant, who recalled as a child falling asleep to the back beat from nearby Nashville North, a country and western club on Lakeside Avenue. “In those days last call was at two,” she added. But, by adding an outdoor music venue to her restaurant, located across Rte. 3 North from Funspot, Cook has aroused the concern of one of her immediate neighbors, Bob Heavey, the owner of Pine Hollow Campground. Last month, the Licensing Board granted Cook a loudspeaker permit in accordance with the city ordinance, which allows bands to play outdoors until 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and until 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. She booked several bands to play under a tent on the Fourth of July, but has not staged a show since. “It was very loud and there was nothing to buffer the sound,” Heavey said. “She has not see WEIRS page 11

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Space used to be a man’s world. Then came Sally Ride, who blazed a cosmic trail for women into orbit. With a pitch perfect name out of a pop song refrain, she joined the select club of American space heroes the public knew by heart: Glenn, Shepard, Armstrong and Aldrin. Ride, the first American woman in orbit, died Monday at her home in the San Diego community of La Jolla at age 61. The cause was pancreatic cancer, an illness she had for 17 months, according to her company, Sally Ride Science. Ride rode into space on the space shuttle Challenger on June 18, 1983, when she was 32. Since then, 42 other American women flew in space. “Sally was a national hero and a powerful role model. She inspired generations of young girls to reach for the stars,” President Barack Obama said in a statement. When shuttles started see RIDE page 4

Colo. shooting suspect in court with shocking orange hair CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) — His hair dyed a shocking comic-book shade of orange-red, James Holmes showed up in court for the first time, but didn’t seem to be there at all. The world’s first look at the man accused of killing 12 moviegoers and injuring 58 others in a shooting rampage at a packed midnight screening of the new Batman film was that of a sleepy, seemingly inattentive suspect. Holmes shuffled into court Monday in a maroon jailhouse jumpsuit with his hands cuffed. Unshaven and appearing dazed, Holmes sat virtually motionless, his eyes drooping as the judge advised him of the severity of the case. At one point, Holmes simply closed his eyes. He never said a word.

Prosecutors said they didn’t know if he was being medicated. His demeanor, however, angered victims’ relatives. Tom Teves, whose son, Alex, was killed in the attack, watched Holmes intently throughout the roughly 12-minute hearing, sizing up the 24-year-old former doctoral student. “I saw the coward in court today and Alex could have wiped the floor with him without breaking a sweat,” Teves said. His son, a physical therapist, dove to protect his girlfriend during “The Dark Knight Rises” shooting at a multiplex in nearby Aurora in the Denver suburbs. The court appearance gave millions the chance to scrutinize Holmes’ every movement, every flutter of his heavy eyelids and form their opinions. “It struck me that this is a person who’s

been through an emotional maelstrom and therefore might be totally wiped out emotionally,” said Dr. Jeffrey Gardere, an assistant professor of behavioral medicine at Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine. Gardere said there could be “a psychotic process going on and we see that being acted out there. Or there might be some sort of malingering going on. In other words, trying to make himself look worse than he actually is. Or maybe a combination of all of those things.” The hearing was the first confirmation that Holmes’ hair was colored. On Friday, there were reports of his hair being red and that he told arresting officers that he was “The Joker.” Batman’s nemesis in the fictional Gotham has brightly colored hair. see SHOOTING page 13

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — A potential exodus of star athletes. No hope of playing in the postseason. More than a decade of accomplishments erased from the record books. And Joe Paterno’s legacy in shreds. Penn State football, a longtime powerhouse that was once one of the cleanest, most admired programs in college sports, escaped the so-called death penalty from the NCAA on Monday but was dealt a heavy blow that will cripple it for years to come. The university agreed to an unprecedented $60 million fine, a four-year ban from postseason play and a cut in the number of football scholarships it can

award — the price it will pay for having looked the other way while Jerry Sandusky brought boys onto campus and molested them. The NCAA also erased 14 years of victories, wiping out 111 of Paterno’s wins and stripping him of his standing as the most successful coach in the history of big-time college football. “Football will never again be placed ahead of educating, nurturing and protecting young people,” NCAA President Mark Emmert declared. Penn State meekly accepted its punishment, pledging to hold itself to high stan-

dards of honesty and integrity. Penn State spokesman David La Torre said university President Rodney Erickson had no choice but to acquiesce, given the threat of a total shutdown of the football program. “It was clear Penn State faced an alternative — a long-term death penalty and additional sanctions for the program, university and whole community. Given the situation, he believed the sanctions offered and accepted was the appropriate and course of action,” La Torre said. At a student union on campus, sevsee PENN STATE page 14

Temp agency that placed Maine man with arsenal in his car tells police he’s on his way to Derry, N.H. to kill former boss Kwiatowski at Exeter Hospital being sued CONCORD (AP) — One of the 30 people believed to have contracted hepatitis C from a traveling medical technician in New Hampshire is suing a Nebraska-based health staffing agency. Robert Fowler of Seabrook was diagnosed with the blood-borne viral disease in June, 14 months after he underwent a cardiac catheterization at Exeter Hospital. Fowler was treated at the hospital’s cardiac lab a month after it hired David Kwiatkowski, who was charged last week with federal drug crimes. Kwiatkowski is accused of stealing anesthetic drugs from the lab, injecting himself and contaminating syringes that were later used on patients. Though he told investigators he was diagnosed with hepatitis C in May, authorities said there is evidence that he has had the disease since at least June 2010. In a lawsuit filed Sunday in federal court in Nebraska, Boston lawyer Domenic Paolini alleges that Triage Staffing Inc. was negligent in hiring, employing and supervising Kwiatkowski as a traveling technician and in sending him to Exeter. He argues that Triage should have known of the likelihood that Kwiatkowski would cause harm and that the company intentionally misrepresented his qualifications and employment record. Triage’s president did not return calls seeking comment Friday or Monday. Kwiatkowski, who grew up in Michigan, worked as a “traveler” sent by staffing agencies to hospitals around the country, usually for temporary jobs. Federal prosecutors say he has worked in at least six states since 2007. Though authorities have not publicly identified the other states, health officials in Michigan, Maryland, Kansas and New York have confirmed his employment. He worked at Exeter Hospital from see HEPATITIS page 13

CONCORD (AP) — A man who was stopped for speeding on the Maine Turnpike had numerous weapons in his car and told authorities he had attended “The Dark Knight Rises” movie with a loaded gun in his backpack, Maine state police said Monday. Timothy Courtois of Biddeford, Maine, was arrested after other drivers reported seeing a Mustang speeding with its lights flashing around 10 a.m. Sunday. A state trooper clocked the car at 112 mph. Courtois told authorities he was on his way to Derry, N.H., to shoot a former employer. He also said he had attended the Batman movie at the Cinemagic Theater in Saco the previous night. A search of his car turned up an AK-47 assault weapon, four handguns, ammunition and clippings about the mass shooting in Colorado that left 12 people dead at a Friday midnight screening of the same movie,

authorities said. “We don’t know what his true intentions were,” said Steve McCausland, spokesman for the Department of Public Safety. “Based on the arsenal that was confiscated, we brought in our counterparts from the FBI and ATF to assist with the investigation.” Later Sunday, police searched Courtois’ home and found a machine gun, several other guns and thousands of rounds of ammunition. Authorities were still trying Monday to confirm whether Courtois actually attended the movie, but state Police Lt. Kevin Donovan said Courtois appeared to be telling the truth when interviewed by investigators. A spokesman for the movie theater chain did not immediately return a call Monday. “I guess we’re taking everything at face value,” see MAINE GUNS page 13

Manchester alderman charged with sex assault MANCHESTER (AP) — A city official in Manchester, N.H., has been charged with sexual assault. WMUR-TV reports ( that Alderman Russell Ouellette was arrested Monday and charged with two counts of misdemeanor sexual assault, one count of simple assault and one count of false imprisonment. The Hillsborough County

Attorney’s office says the charges stem from a July 12 incident in which a woman called 911 from a pickup truck being driven by Oullette and said she was in a “bad situation.” Ouellette’ attorney, James Rosenberg, said he and his client are working with police to understand the nature and scope of the charges.

Belmont deliberative session short & sweet, vote on closing street & buying bank building will be Aug. 21

Vinny Baiocchetti will retire as town’s police chief at the end of year BY GAIL OBER

BELMONT — About 20 people came to the Corner Meeting House for last night’s deliberative session leading up to an August 21 vote on closing Mill Street Extension and authorizing the town to spend no more than $250,000 to purchase the former Northway Bank Building. The session lasted about one-half hour. George Condodemetraky tried to amend the maximum purchase price to $240,000 but he was supported by only five people. Selectman Ruth Mooney said the board determined the “no more than $250,000” so they could fairly and effectively negotiate the sale price with owners William and Carolyn McDonough. According to an independent appraisal performed by Applied Economic Research, the building has an approximate market value of $245,000. Real estate appraiser Charles Schubert used average “armslength” selling prices for other commercial buildings similar in nature in the Lakes Region and their selling prices per square foot as some of his basic barometers. The total assessment is for $275,000. The land is worth $74,000, the building is worth $186,300, the extra building features are worth $10,000 and the outbuildings are worth $4,700. Schubert said the equalized value — $275,000 adjusted for the 115.7 percent property value rating by the Department of Revenue - is $237,684. Conservation Commission Chair Ken Knowlton spoke in favor not only of the town’s buying the building that now houses only The Vault, a hairdressing salon — but of the town seriously considering using the building in the future for town offices. He also said he would support a study of the futre needs of Belmont’s town offices.

“We have been paying money to improve the schools while the town molds,” he said, noting the new Belmont High School and the improvements to its middle and elementary schools. “We don’t have a future adequate town hall.” Selectman Ron Cormier addressed both issues before the discussion. He said the reason for closing Mill Street Extension was to provide more green-space to the soon-to-begin Village Revitalization Project. In response to a question about traffic, he said the engineers of the Village Revitalization Project and the Department of Transportation evaluated relocating Mill Street Extension to the end of the parking lot down into the Belmont Mill as viable and said it wouldn’t create a hazard. He also said that if the Mill Street Extension is closed, one-half of the road reverts to the owners of the Northway Bank Building, Will and Carolyn McDonough but that would not significantly alter the plan. The next and final step is for the ballot vote on August 21. Polls will be at the Belmont High School and will be open from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. This will be the third time the voters will get to decide whether or not to purchase the building. In 2008 after a January special town meeting, voters rejected a proposal to buy it for $300,000 from former owners Tony and Loretta Brown. The vote was 134 for the purchase to 143 against. At the 2010 regular town meeting, voters again rejected a proposal to buy the building and property from the McDonoughs for $275,000. The vote was 311 for town ownership to 421 against. In other Belmont news, selectmen announced that Police Chief Vincent Baiocchetti had put in his sixmonth notice of retirement. Selectman Jon Pike said Baiocchetti has been Belmont’s Police Chief for 10 years and has 33 years of police service. His retirement becomes effective January 1, 2013.

Son of 2010 Gilford murder victim accepts Retirement Time prison time for unlawful possession of gun Line: Age 50-70½ By Gail OBer

LACONIA — The son of the woman murdered in her Gilford Country Club Road home over Halloween weekend in 2010 pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a deadly weapon last month and will serve one to three years in prison. Jonathan Miller, 25, of 165 Stark Street was arrested on September 1, 2011 by the Gilford Police. In 2007, Miller pleaded guilty to four counts of burglary in Carroll County Superior Court. According to various motions filed before the capped plea deal was agreed to, Miller purchased a .45 caliber Glock handgun from former Gilmanton Police Sgt. Dennis Rector. Rector said yesterday that he sold the gun through an on-line guns sales site similar to Craig’s List. He said he met with Miller on or about August 11, they agreed on a price, and he sold him the gun. Rector was no longer a police officer when he sold the gun to Miller. “I had never met him before,” Rector said yesterday. When Rector was discussing the sale with a friend of his over the next few days, he said his friend told him that Miller was the man whose mother was murdered in Gilford and that he thought Miller may have felony convictions in his past. Rector said he called Lt. Kris Kelley of the Gilford Police and told him about the private gun sale. Miller was arrested and charged by Gilford Police a few days later. In preparation for his trial, Asst. Belknap County Attorney Stacy Kaelin filed a motion to exclude the information about Roberta Miller’s murder from the jury. In her motion to exclude any reference to the murder, she said that the two charges were unrelated and the value of the testimony would be outweighed by the danger of unfair prejudice, and the potential to confuse and mislead the jury.

“Lastly, the murder remains unsolved,” wrote Kaelin. “Upon information and belief, the defendant may have been, at least at one time, a suspect in the murder investigation.” She went on to say that if the court were to allow testimony about Miller’s mother’s murder regarding him being in fear for his life, it could open the door to correcting any misimpression left with the jury by such testimony. Miller’s lawyer argued against it saying the jury should know about Miller’s mother’s murder. “He is entitled to present to the jury a picture of who he is,” said Atty. Daniel Deutsch in response. “While the defendant’s purpose in acquiring a firearm for protection is not in itself a defense to the felon in possession charge, testimony concerning that purpose is appropriate in this case.” Deutsch described the murder of Roberta “Bobbie” Miller as widely publicized and that some newspaper articles mentioned Miller’s gun possession charge and the murder of his mother in the same story. “Jurors who are aware of the murder but are not permitted to hear of (the) defendant’s purpose in acquiring a gun to protect himself are likely to speculate about an adverse connection between the to events,” Deutsch wrote. He also said if potential jurors were asked about the murder during “voir dire” (when the defense, prosecution, and judge ask potential jurors about their ability to fairly decide a case) then not mentioning it at trial would only create more confusion and misconceptions. Before the court held oral arguments on the motions, Miller and Kaelin agreed on June 1 to a capped plea of one to three years for the felon in possession charge with the possibility of work release. Miller is also facing motions to impose the sentences he received that were deferred in following his burglary convictions in 2007 in Carroll County.

from preceding page alluding to the pop song with the refrain of the same name: “Ride, Sally Ride.” NASA Administrator Charles Bolden, a former astronaut, said Ride “broke barriers with grace and professionalism — and literally changed the face of America’s space program.”

“The nation has lost one of its finest leaders, teachers and explorers,” he said in a statement. Ride was a physicist, writer of five science books for children and president of her own company, which motivates youngsters to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math. She had also been a professor of physics at the University of California, San Diego.

My name is Filomena Day, a Senior Advisor from DAK Financial Group pinch hitting for the Captain. This week’s article will provide a general overview of a retirement time line without enumerating all the pros and cons surrounding the age specific decisions. Many people think major retirement decisions coincide with your 65th birthday. In reality, many important decisions begin as early as age 50. Actually, you are never too young to start developing your long term financial objectives. “If I knew then what I know now …” is a phrase often spoken by seniors who would have done things differently if they had been more informed young enough to make intelligently planned decisions versus emotionally charged emergency ones in reaction to sudden life changing events. Age 50: During the year in which you turn 50, you can begin to make catch-up contributions (beyond the normal contribution limits) to a 401(k) and many other retirement accounts. Age 55: During the year in which you turn 55, you may receive amounts from an employer’s retirement plan without the 10% federal tax penalty if you separate from the service of that employer. Age 59½: You may begin taking withdrawals from a retirement account without the federal 10% tax penalty, but be prepared to pay the taxes on the account’s growth at your current tax bracket. Of course, the more you leave in, the more the funds grow tax-deferred. Age 62: You may be eligible to begin receiving Social Security (SS) benefits. However, by choosing to begin drawing SS before your Full Retirement Age (FRA), you would receive a permanently reduced monthly benefit. Age 65: You are eligible for Medicare on the first day of the month you turn age 65. If you do not enroll during that month, and wish to enroll later, you may be required to pay a higher premium. Age 66: If you were born between 1943 and 1954 you reach FRA at age 66, and are entitled to 100% of your SS benefits. If you were born in 1955 to 1959, add two months for each year to calculate your FRA. Age 67: If you were born in 1960 or later, your FRA is age 67. Age 70½: You must begin withdrawing your Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) from most retirement accounts or incur significant tax penalties. It is imperative to work with an independent knowledgeable financial professional or tax advisor to discuss your own retirement time line and specific objectives so you understand all your options and gain a clear picture of your retirement readiness.

Courage & Commitment This is about a man who is all about honor, trust, and commitment — Robert C. Jones of Meredith. The phrase, “Doing what is right, even when no one is looking.” is applicable to him each and every day. Born the fourth of five children to William and Helen Jones, he grew up in Fairhaven, Vermont. While he was in high school, his dad passed away and the coaches of Fairhaven Union High, Ira Blackburn (aka “coach Blackey”) and Tom LaPlaca, helped shepherd him through some difficult times. They taught him about teamwork and they fed his desire to compete and achieve. His record for most touchdowns in a nine game season still stands almost 50 years later. He has never forgotten their fatherly attitude and the guidance they gave him. After high school, in 1964, he enlisted in the Navy, knowing that the war in Viet Nam would demand his services. He became a Navy Corpsman, and was assigned to a Fleet Marine Battalion. He tended to the fallen and wounded during many battles, and received two Purple Hearts for the wounds he suffered while tending to others, and he earned the Bronze Star, with a “V” for valor, for his bravery on the battlefield. His experiences during that time would stay with him, and would guide him during all the years that followed. When he returned from “Nam”, he was assigned to St. Alban’s Naval Hospital in Long Island, New York. While there, he was assigned to assist recovering sailors and Marines with their physical therapy. While there too, he met his future bride, Paula Padilla, who was the head Navy Corp Wave in the pediatric unit at the hospital. Their romance started at the New Year’s Eve celebration at the NCO club at St. Alban’s. It wasn’t long before Petty Officer Jones decided it was time to treat his Vermont family to the joy of meeting their future in-law. They married near the end of August that same year. When they were discharged, Corpsman Jones and his bride moved back to Fairhaven. He decided to continue his career in the Medical field and applied and was accepted into Dartmouth’s first Physician Assistants (PA’s) course of study. These positions were initially designed for PA’s to fill the voids created by the physician’s shortage. While they worked under the aegis of a physician, the PA’s were licensed to work remotely, write prescriptions, and so on. After graduation, he moved from his home in Vermont and relocated to Meredith, where he worked with Doctor Vazifdar for a total of 20

years, and with doctors Nadeau and Melville for about 10 years each. Then, an opportunity came up to join LRGHealthcare and start the Vetlink program. The prospect of “being there” for veterans and their families was all he could hope for. The Vetlink program has been in operation for over 12 years, helping countless veterans and their families receive the aid and assistance they needed. While Bob’s career was moving forward, he and Paula were blessed with two beautiful daughters, Kim and Katie. As the years passed, Kim and her husband Brian, further blessed mom and dad with granddaughter Sammie (Samantha), and Katie and husband Frank added granddaughters Faith and Hope. Nothing makes Papa Bob happier than to be surrounded by all those women in his life. As a grandfather, he cheerfully accepts his responsibility to do his best to spoil each and every one of them. In 1988, Jones and a few veteran friends decided to start a “Vigil” at Hesky Park in Meredith. Their purpose was to stand vigil awaiting the return of those POWs and MIAs who had not been returned home from war, to “Never Forget” their missing comrades. Along the way he and some other veterans also cobbled together the Northeast POW/MIA organization, which provides veterans with the ability to seek aid from or give assistance to other veteran’s, regardless of the issue. In typical Bob Jones fashion, the NE POW/MIA is not burdened by structure, but is heavily armed with commitment. The “Rock”, which rests below the flag in Hesky Park is inscribed with the words “Let us not forget”. Every Thursday evening for over 24 years, the vigil has been attended by citizens, veterans, and families who have not forgotten those who have yet to be returned from battle. During “Bike Week”, bikers from all across the country ride enmasse from Laconia to Hesky Park in what is known as their “Freedom Ride”. In honor of the Vigil and the Freedom Ride, last month, Governor Lynch signed a proclamation naming the nearby bridge in Meredith, “The POW/MIA Vigil & Freedom Ride Bridge. On July 20th, Bob Jones retired from is position as Vetlink Coordinator at LRGHealthcare. In true Jones fashion, he will continue to support the Vetlink function as a volunteer. It is said that life’s priorities should be to God, family, country, and job. No one exemplifies adherence to those priorities better than Corpsman Robert C. Jones, PA. Semper Fi! (Bob Meade is a resident of Laconia.)

LETTERS If U.S. was really a Christian nation this is what it would look like To the editor, Okay, let’s just PRETEND for a moment that America IS a “Christian Nation” whose policies and laws should be founded on Biblical principles (which is, of course, not the case). I was recently reading the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, and was wondering what a nation based on Judeo-Christian principles could look like. I am not sure if my ideas are what many Christian conservatives have in mind (and I am certainly not a theologian) but it might actually lead to a more sane, kind, compassionate, and progressive society. There are some really progressive ideas in the Jewish and Christian Bibles! In foreign policy, a nation based on true Biblical principles might come to the conclusion that super-nationalism and national chauvinism was actually a form of idolatry. A nation based on these principles might also “bless the peacemakers” instead of the war-mongers. Certainly, such a nation would not go to war to make big profits for corporations at the expense of those who have to fight and die in such wars. We might even avoid “doing unto others” what we did not want done to us! Perhaps we would also be nicer to our immigrants, following the Biblical command to not malign “strangers in our land.” At home, perhaps we would follow the example of Jesus and stop all pending judicial executions in the United States. Perhaps our entire criminal justice system would change and we would focus on redemption, restitution, reconciliation, and true rehabilitation instead of revenge and punishment. We might even oppose private prisons that make enormous profits by locking more people up. Perhaps our civil legal system would also change dramatically. If individuals and corporations simply treated people fairly, admitted fault, apologized, and made restitution for wrongs committed, we might have far fewer lawsuits. Moreover, maybe Christians would worry more about the rights of children than “parental rights.” After all, in the Gospels, Jesus warned adults about hurting or disrespecting kids. A nation truly based on Christian (and Jewish) principles would have a sense of community. It would take care of its poor, its homeless, its hungry and people who were more fortunate would share with those less fortunate. Jesus

sonally any failure to show compassion to the hungry and the naked. We would have a simple attitude toward health care reform and see it as a social duty. I seem to remember Jesus dispensing FREE health care. In an America based on Biblical principles, perhaps our nation would feel that it was an OBLIGATION and not a “charitable choice” to take care of the less fortunate members of our society. I have never understood how conservative Christians often think that individual charity is more “moral” than paying taxes to help the needy. Does it make them feel morally superior or do they do it for approval? While reading the Bible, I noticed that Jesus advocated giving to the poor anonymously. In a modern context, what is more individually anonymous than paying taxes for social programs? In a country truly based on Judeo-Christian principles, we wouldn’t care how it was done as long as it was being done. Nor, in the words of one Hebrew prophet, would we allow the rich to “eat up the poor.” Hey, we might even ban legal loan-sharking operations like “payday loan” companies! I suspect that in such a society, politics would still be important and passionate but a lot less dirty and more honest. People would criticize leaders on the basis of fact and not fiction. Certainly, the “Birthers” (many of whom claim to be Christian) would finally admit that their vicious accusations were racist in nature. Certainly, it is a violation of the commandment (one of the Big Ten) to not “bear false witness.” Finally, a nation based on these principles might seriously rethink its cherished economic paradigms. Jesus warned his disciples against worshipping Mammon, the god of wealth. He also taught about the incompatibility of extreme wealth and the Kingdom of God. Modern corporate capitalism certainly runs counter to the Tenth Commandment: don’t covet. What is modern, predatory corporate greed based on if not the sin of “coveting?” I noticed that a lot of conservative Christians often bash organized labor. But, if everyone followed Biblical principles, perhaps we would need fewer unions because everyone would be treated and paid fairly by their employer and employees, in return, would trust their employers.

LETTERS Case could be made that entrepreneurs succeed despite govt.

Thank you all for your help in bringing circus back to town

To the editor, Don’t you just love it! Obama makes the completely asinine and absurd claim GOVERNMENT co-sponsors every successful entrepreneur story in America simply because we have roads and schools. It brings little joy to suggest the president of the United States is a raving, LUNATIC but his logic confirms the diagnoses. Obama forgets such entrepreneurs pay their fair share of property taxes to fund public education, especially true if they live in N.H. The cost of every gallon of gasoline is heavily taxed at the state and federal level to pay for road repair and maintenance. If Obama’s LOGIC had even a speck of truth, government also owns the flip side of the coin which is the FAILURE story in America. The list of FAILURE is too long to itemize here but It would surely include the RECORD number of Americans now TOTALLY DEPENDENT on government for things as basic as food, a roof and a disability check. Government now has more people addicted to FOOD STAMPS THAN AT ANYTIME IN HISTORY. YES, it is TRUE, government actually ADVERTISES on RADIO to FIND more people to put on FOOD STAMPS. If Obama’s logic is correct we must THANK government for the complete and total failure of education characterized by increased drop out rates, falling test scores all tied to costs that have hit the stratosphere directly reducing the living standards of every middle class citizen. Roads and bridges across America are in dismal repair according to Obama as he cam-

To the editor, As the co-chairman of this years appearance of the 2012 Kelly-Miller Circus, we would like to thank the many, many businesses that contributed their efforts, towards making the event a complete success. It is our hope that we forget no one as we try to recognize all those that were part of the complete team. So here goes: The Laconia Daily Sun, Ed Engler and the entire “Sun Team” for keeping the Circus in the eyes of our attendees! The Weirs Times for their great editorials, The Laconia Citizen for their contributions as well! To all our great ticket outlets for their time and efforts to help folks get the best pricing to view the all the shows: The Downtown Deli, The Studio, Burrito Me, (Plymouth & Laconia), Evergreen, Alton Bay Citgo, Innsfree Books Patrick’s Pub, Weir Beach Citgo, (thanks Jose), Anne’s Book Store, Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce, last but not least, again the champions of ticket selling two years in a row, our good friends at All My Life Jewelers, Randy, Sue, Charlie and the entire staff for your hard work and dedication of hosting the Kelly-Miller Circus is beyond words! “You folks Rock”! To all the members of “The Main Street Initiative”, thank you for your contributions and support. Now to the folks who really made a difference. The City of Laconia, all departments, without your help and corporation you made this family event a success beyond beliefs! We would like to thank the Laconia Parks & Recreation Commissioners, Kevin Dunleavey, their able director and the entire staff, the Water Department, our friends at the Public Works, Chief Adams and staff at the Laconia Police Department, Chief Erickson and staff at the Laconia Fire Depart-

paigns non stop for hundreds of billions of STIMULUS infrastructure. If government is to be THANKED for roads being the ROAD to success then GOVERNMENT has FAILED its duty to keep them fit and fixed. A STRONG argument could be made entrepreneurs SUCCEED despite GOVERNMENT. Despite it’s potholed roads and it’s totally failed, OUTRAGEOUSLY EXPENSIVE public education system. Despite GOVERNMENTS constant increase in taxes both in amount and number. DESPITE GOVERNMENTS non stop increase in regulations and RULES that only create red tape and bureaucracy that reduce the productivity of American business to compete on world markets. Obamacare ALONE adds 22 new TAXES that represent $400-BILLION in higher COSTS that will be paid mostly from the wallets of the middle class. American entrepreneurs (mostly REPUBLICAN) succeed DESPITE DEMOCRATS and DESPITE Obama’s relentless DEMONIZATION of BUSINESS, PROFITS and SUCCESS in America. Is it any wonder why a president so educated has failed America and it’s citizens SO BADLY. His logic is nothing but SICK, DESTRUCTIVE, ANTIAmerican, anti-INSPIRATIONAL, nation dividing, donkey dung. This country needs an inspiring leader, proud of Americas heritage, proud of it’s exceptionalism, proud of its greatness, proud of capitalism and proud of the profit motive that has made this country the ENVY of the world. Tony Boutin Gilford

Vote for the presidential candidate who shares your values To the editor, It all boils down to VALUES! The 2012 presidential race should be easy for the average American to make a choice. The most important indicator for how to make that choice is our VALUES, or in other words, what we believe in and stand for. What values do we have? Which presidential candidate shares our values? I believe in supporting our elderly with Social Security for those 65 and older. I believe in providing health care for our elderly with Medicare — in fact, I believe in affordable health care for all Americans. I believe in a quality educational system which gives all Americans a chance for upward mobility. I believe that as nation we should care for our poor, our sick, our young, and those in unfortunate circumstances — such as those losing a home or a job. The priorities of a country’s VALUES are best expressed in its budget and tax structure. So the question to ask ourselves is: How much money is being allocated for those items that represent my values? What are the proposed tax plans of the candidates? Romney wants to increase taxes on the poor to give tax breaks to the wealthy and to large corporations. President Obama wants corporations and the rich to pay their fair share of supporting government and programs and to give average citizens a tax

badly, but we need to tax those who most easily can pay! Mitt Romney and most Republicans do not share my values. Their focus is on shifting wealth toward select corporations, and the very rich; and, shifting money away from those activities, programs, and ideals that have made our country great in the past by giving everyone a fair chance to succeed. This discussion leads to the electorate — you. What are your VALUES? Do you want to give tax breaks to the wealthy at the expense of the poor, sick, and unfortunate? Do you want to stop caring for the elderly by advocating the demise of Medicare? Do you believe that only those Americans who can afford expensive insurance plans should have health care? Or, do you want yourself and your children to benefit from the safety net of a government program if you (at no fault of your own) run into difficult times, such as unemployment, illness, or a major accident? The answer is to vote for the presidential candidate who shares your VALUES. The candidate with the VALUES I was exposed to growing up and the VALUES of responsible Americans, is our current President Barak Obama. He shares the VALUES that have made the United States the finest nation in the world in the past, and will keep us great in the future. He will have my vote and I hope yours. Dr. Thomas Dawson

ment. Thank you to our friends and staff at Beans & Greens in Gilford for again supplying us with a cart for the animal manure! To Heather and the staff at Bestway in Belmont for the trash container, and their counterparts in Maine (Blow Brothers) for their generous donations of the Port-Potti’s. Both of these businesses, contributed their services two years in a row! OMG, without all these great people, we could not have brought you this awesome family show to Laconia. It is our hope that all of you that attended enjoyed this years version of the Kelly-Miller Circus. Who would have ever believed that you could see such a great show here in Laconia. I must share a comment of one of the Kelly-Miller staff member. Quote: “If I was at retirement age, I would strongly consider retiring to this community. The folks here are the nicest folks we have encountered throughout our tour! This is a great place to visit and we make 220 stops as we tour the country each year. Please tell the folks of the Lakes Region that we are blessed to stop here, and “thank you” for having us!” True words of the quote! We pray that we have not forgotten anyone. If we have, we apologize, it was not intended! Again, “Thank you all”, for attending the Circus and supporting the” Main Street Initiative” its members. If you liked the show, tell a member and share your positive thoughts about the show! One last note if we may, a special thank you to the neighbors of Memorial Park. You have been kind in allowing us to be a part of your neighborhood again this year! Don R. Vachon Drew Senical 2012 Kelly-Miller Circus, Laconia Co-Chairmen

If Obama’s father had been a white African we’d hear none of this To the editor, Mr. Stephenson, in your latest letter, you called me ignorant. I assume that is because I do not share your views, share Rush Limbaugh’s insane ranting, share the inaccurate and onesided view of Fox News or share Donald Trump’s ridiculous conspiracy theories. However that doesn’t make me ignorant, it just means I prefer living in the real world. I firmly believe that if our president’s father had been a white Kenyan he would have been accepted and all these insults, derogatory comments and absurd theories would never have materialized. You see I am not naive. I know that there are people in the USA that still do not believe a person of color should be the president. As if that should make any difference. In the USA we have many people who have a set of parents one of which is a U.S. citizen and the other a citizen of another country living here under permanent visa status. The children born of these unions, on U.S. soil, are American citizens. That is the reality that seemed to get forgotten and is addressed in our Constitution which makes it the law.

I choose to be honest with my words and beliefs and I choose to be forthright with my words. I choose to accept people for the way they interact with me. I have family and friends of various skin tones and they are all the same — human beings. Unfortunately, I see the haters using other tactics to voice their hate rather then to admit the hate is generated by their racist beliefs. Let’s face the simple fact no one wants to be called a racist. Instead of speaking straight out they come up with all these ridiculous statements and theories and use coded phrases. You continuously state you have all this proof that the president was not born on U.S. soil. So, if you have it, why haven’t you published it for all to see? The information proving the president was born on U.S. soil has been published and you still choose to dispute those legal documents. It has been my experience that those who brag about what they know or have (but never show it) are actually just talking to hear themselves talk. SO SHOW US YOUR EVIDENCE. Nancy Parsons Laconia

LETTERS Reality of the Bible is overwhelming to those with open eyes

Question before us is whether universe needed a God to exist

To the editor, In 1979, researchers at the Laetoli, Tanzania, site in East Africa discovered human footprints in volcanic ash deposits over 3.6-million years old. Mary Leakey and other archaeologist stated that they were indistinguishable from modern humans. Since then, scientist in Africa have been finding similar finds of remarkably human bones. In 1965, Bryan Patterson and W.W. Howells found bones that were surprisingly identical to modern human bones in Kanapoi, Kenya. The femur was determined to be over 4-million years old. In 1913 German scientist Hans Reck found a complete anatomically modern human skeleton at Olduci Gorge, Tasmania that was found to be 1-million years old. In the 1960’s Louis leaky found stone tools over 200,000 years old at Calico Southern California. Up to that time it was believed that humans had not been in the new world until 12,000 years ago. Einstein said “it may be heuristically useful to keep in mind what one has observed. But on principle it is quite wrong to try grounding a theory on observable quantities alone. In reality the opposite happens it is the theory which determines what we can observe”. The shoe print found in Nevada in 1922. The Triassic rock formation was tested at 213-million years old. In my high school years we were taught that there were no horses in the New World until the Spaniards brought them here. A false assumption. A toy horse mounted on wheels were found among Aztec ruins. We were also taught that the ancient inhabitants did not have wheels . Another false teaching. A drilling rig in Texas brought up a crystal horse. It was several hundred feel down. Confusing adaptability to evolution is a misnomer . Archaeologist in Maine several decades ago found skeletons of Native Americans who had adapted to surviving upon the lakes. Their legs were shorter. Their shoulders were larger than normal, due to paddling the canoe. The concept of withholding informa-

To the editor, I would like to address the letters from Mr. McCoy and Hillarie Goldstein. To Mr. McCoy I say, I hardly have all the answers but I certainly think my answers are better than yours. Being a huge science and history fan since childhood, I think my perspectives are more firmly grounded in fact, logic and common sense. As far as how things got where they are, everything happened according to the laws of physics. The latest discovery of the Higgs Boson particle at the collider in Europe was predicted by physicist Peter Higgs decades ago. It fits what the science predicted which is the hallmark of firmly established theories. Creationism isn’t science because you can’t predict anything with it nor can you devise an experiment to support the idea. Another major component of the scientific method is that one has to be able to create experiments to disprove an idea. That is how they test ideas over time. Creationism has none of these requirements. The question that is before us is whether the universe needed a God to exist. If God could be uncaused then it is logical that the universe could be, too. It just may be that the entire universe is just as self-existent as God is to you. You can’t get around that. We may never know but to invent a God for all the things we are yet to understand is not how a logical mind works. Your question reminds me of how thunder and lightning were perceived by primitive peoples. To them, thunder, lightning, floods, earthquakes, etc must be from the gods. That is because they didn’t have any better answers at the time. That is how I look at the Bible; it reflects the thinking of primitive cultures with primitive knowledge and technology. I am reminded of Thomas Jefferson’s admonition to his nephew Peter Carr in the 1780s. He said to “question with boldness the existence of God” because if there be a God, it will homage reason over blindfolded fear. That frees the mind

tion that disrupts a common belief or theory is not unheard of. In reality it is fraudulent. The Kennewick man was determined to be much older than any Native American remains. President Clinton ordered it returned to the place it was found. It was found on Native American property. Proving that Caucasians were here first would upset and discredit some who would rather adhere to their theory than search for truth. The Ashfall, Nebraska archeological digs. Have you heard of them? Probably not. Darwinists avoid it The reliability of the Bible is overwhelming to those who’s eyes are open. It is of many people and how they caused troubles for themselves. Archeologists have been locating evidence for the last hundred years to substantiate the Bible. A story book to the Bible bashers who fail to grasp its message and history. It is consistent with science. “It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth (Isaiah 40:22) Ecclesiastes 1:6 states that the winds move in cyclone patterns and Job tells us that light is in motion (Job 38: 19-20) These were written thousands of years before Christopher Columbus, satellite or Einstein’s calculations. “The laws of science, as we know them at present, contain many fundamental numbers... the values of these numbers seem to have been very finely adjusted to make possible the development of life.” Professor Steven Hawkins. “ The impression of design is overwhelming”. Professor Paul Davies. In Tinker v. Des Moines Independent School District, The U.S. Supreme Court stated “ It can hardly be argued that either students or teachers shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate”. Once man mocks God he closes the door to light and knowledge. And opens a window to illusions that distort his mind like a kaleidoscope. He denies the existence of his very soul and dies within. And becomes a useful tool to the great deceiver. Gene F. Danforth Danbury

Making people drive to Concord for driver’s license makes no sense To the editor, Closing the other DMV places was not a great idea! Now people have to drive to Concord, stand in a big long line for hours, pay extra for gas and more for their licence. (No senior discount there!) Speaking of seniors there was an old man there that had just had eye surgery and could not pass the eye test, but had to have paperwork for the eye doctor. Do you think someone could have let him sit and go get the paper for him? No! He had to get in line and all he had to hold onto was a post and straps. Finally two very nice men let him go in front of them so he could go further up in line. People renewing their license had to stand in line for hours! People doing drivers tests and people that didn’t speak English had a place to sit, but there was not place

for seniors. Can’t they either open up more places to go or hire more people in Concord? Can they also have a special place for seniors? The line was the length of the building. They seem to think that everyone has a computer to do it online, but we don’t. Some of us cannot afford computers or Internet or cell phones. Especially seniors! Every Time cut backs happen its us they do it to! Anyway, there was a time when people protected the older generation. Helping them across the street, getting them a chair, giving them an arm to lean on. Thank you guys for letting the man go in front of your in line, that doesn’t happen very often. Most people don’t care. The DMV should. Diana Field Franklin

and gives one peace. After all, supposedly God gave us a frontal lobe to reason with so why would God want us to throw it out for special circumstances? To Hillarie I say, I agree with your statement that religious people can’t be barred from contributing but there are limits. You cite the first amendment but the amendment has two sections. One is the free exercise clause and the other is the establishment clause. The first says believe any way you wish and the second says the government can’t promote any one religion or religious idea. That means no law can be based on a religious doctrine. It gets muddy in situations where a Christian may want to pass welfare programs to fit the ethics of the Sermon on the Mount while a progressive atheist may want to do the same only because they care a lot. They agree and religion isn’t needed for it to get done. The founders knew the bloody history of Christianity and took steps to prevent it on this continent. The constitution also bans religious tests for oaths of office. Such oaths firmly established a favored religion in government. Did you know that N.H. required any office holder to be Protestant until 1877? UGLY STATE! Banning such oaths in 1789 made clear that the government took no sides on the issue. So if one wants to pass a law solely because it is Biblical “law”, it is unconstitutional. The 14th Amendment is clear about equal treatment under the law and that is why anti-gay laws will crumble. Whether you feel one’s sexual orientation is inherent or a choice it matters not because the constitution guarantees equal protection and due process under the law. America means choice while religion disparages it. I happen to believe sexual orientation has biological origins and I could cite a hundred reasons and examples throughout nature and history. James Veverka Tilton

Reardon scandal pales in comparison to Lynch’s FRM debacle To the editor, Why would the Reardon scandal be considered the most serious scandal of Governor Lynch’s administration, as it was recently described? The Reardon case involved just a few thousand dollars of unemployment benefits to someone. The FRM cover up scandal involving Gov. Lynch, Kelly Ayotte and Peter Hildreth involved the loss of more than one hundred million dollars, for some people the loss of their homes and life savings and even some lost their lives. It has been proven that these losses were the fault of Gov. Lynch’s administration but he refuses to consider reimbursing any of the victims. He allowed Peter Hildreth to retire with full benefits and Kelly Ayotte has been elected to a higher office. She said U.S. Atty. General Holder shouldn’t be allowed to investigate himself but she supported the N.H. AG’s office to investigate itself even though the N.H. AG’s office had by their own admission failed in their

plaints about FRM multiple times, which amounted to allowing the Ponzi scheme to continue unobstructed. It should be clearly understood that both Kelley Ayotte and Peter Hildreth were re-appointed to their positions by Governor Lynch and that both positions reported directly to Governor Lynch. What do these failures of the executive branch of N.H. government say about Governor Lynch’s management capabilities? Was he hands off? Apparently. How can the Reardon case even be remotely compared to the FRM failure of the executive branch of N.H. government? It can’t. Governor Lynch promised a squeaky clean government should he become governor. He has not delivered on his promise. The failures of the N.H. executive branch under the leadership of Governor Lynch should forever own their massive failings as their legacy. N.H. deserves much better than we have received.

Why in God’s name do we allow mentally ill people to buy war guns? To the editor, The tragedy in Colorado demonstrates, once again, the lethal potential of assault weapons, which are designed for killing more people, more rapidly. They are built for that very function — mass assaults! We know they’ll never be a total ban on handguns! The NRA and many hand gun owners will not permit that to happen. But why, in God’s name, allow mentally ill people, and anyone else for that matter, to purchase a weapon used in war, to become just another household item? Consider an assault weapon as a bomb designed to kill, or injure, sev-

eral people at one time — and in the hands of an insane person. Is this the law of the land? Have we totally lost our rational and sense of responsibility that protects us from undo harm? Laws that should apply to all our citizens and make them safe from this rampant violence — for the sake of gun ownership? We don’t have to worry about Middle Eastern countries. Their threat in minimal, at best. Worry about laws that allow mass killings made possible by hand-held WMDs! Leon R. Albushies Gilford

which turned out to be a taxpayer bailout, therefore, funded by us. He is hiding Bain because he isn’t to sure when he stopped working there — 1999 or 2002. His political resume isn’t to good either. His tax returns are interesting I’ve heard, so interesting that only John McCain has seen them. He quickly called Sarah Palin for his VP choice — hmm, wonder what was in them. So, Shelden Edelson is funding the Republican party this year hoping to buy a president and a Supreme Court due to his impending problems in Macau and his gambling empire — just an educated guess.

To the editor, You keep on saying we can’t tax the wealthy because they are the JOB CREATORS, so where are the jobs that they are going to create. You have been saying this for many years now and they have yet to create any jobs, at least any that stay in this country. So I say TAX the SOBs and maybe they will create a job or two or maybe, as usual, they will save all their money to bribe (meaning donate to) the next set of politicians. At least Obama has tried to create or invest in our country, much to the dismay of the Republicans. Most of the time the Republicans have blocked or fillibustered any jobs bill hoping to make Obama look bad. They figure to win the election because we are so stupid and are not watching what they are doing, NOTHING, to help this country. Romney figures to win on his business record which has shrunk to the Olympic games, only

ARE SILVER FILLINGS SAFE? There has been quite a lot of controversy over the past 150 years regarding the safety of silver amalgam fillings. The word “amalgam” describes a compound in which mercury is alloyed with another metal. Measuring instruments in today’s world are so sensitive that they can detect even the slightest trace of mercury (or anything else), and all humans have a measurable amount of mercury in their bodies. For healthy people with amalgam restorations, about 20% of the mercury in their bodies is derived from silver fillings. The other 80% comes from dietary sources (especially fish), air, and water. Proponents of dental amalgam note that no scientific study (there are many) has ever demonstrated harm to patients resulting from this very slight exposure. Opponents of amalgam believe that any slight exposure caries more risk than they are willing to bear. The bulk of scientific evidence clearly supports the continued use of amalgam in the absence of metal allergies (some women are metal sensitive and should definitely not have silver fillings). As amalgam is less costly and in some cases more durable than alternative materials, it seems reasonable to offer it as an option. Many patients prefer to avoid it due to the perception of risk or poor esthetics, and that is OK. There are excellent alternative materials available in today’s dental environment, so choose whatever makes you happy. George T. Felt, DDS, MAGD 9 Northview Drive 279-6959

This view of the infamous intersection of Routes 3 and 11-B at Weirs Beach shows the lines Department of Transportation workers painted on the asphalt to mark travel lanes when construction work on a new roundabout stopped for a summer break. Ward 6 Councilor Armand Bolduc has suggested the intersection now be left as is but DOT officials have countered that the intersection is still not as safe as it should be during heavy traffic periods. Of particular concern is traffic headed northwest on Rte. 11-B (center, background) that is attempting to merge onto Rte. 3. DOT officials note that some drivers just ignore the painted lines and create their own pattern, as the vehicle in the center of this photo is doing. (Laconia Daily Sun photo/Ed Engler)

JUNCTION from page one The DOT concedes that the temporary layout appears to function, but insists that the efficiency and safety of the intersection will deteriorate as the volume of traffic increases. In particular, the temporary layout fails to serve vehicles on Rte. 11-B, which would find it increasingly difficult to turn either northbound or southbound on to Rte. 3. Likewise, southbound traffic on Rte. 3 would be unable to bypass vehicles waiting to turn left on to Rte. 11-B, causing congestion on the Weirs Channel Bridge and several private driveways. Vehicles on Rte. 11-B seeking to join the flow of traffic on Rte. 3 are at risk of collision under the temporary layout, according to DOT. A roundabout, where all traffic moves in the same direction WYATT from page one Wyatt Park, took the initiative when the council considered carrying forward encumbered balances, or monies appropriated for specific purposes in past years that for various reasons have not been spent, which included $25,000 appropriated in 2010 and $15,710 appropriated in 2009 for playground equipment. She suggested adding $25,000 appropriated for playground equipment in the 2012-2013 budget to the encumbered balance of $40,710 and applying the total — $65,710 — to Wyatt Park. Councilor Armand Bolduc (Ward 6) reminded the council that plans for reconfiguring and improving Wyatt Park were under consideration and cautioned “don’t do work now then do it over again next year. It’s going to be a waste.” The lukewarm reaction prompted Baer to remark that “for some reason the South End and Wyatt Park don’t seem to get their fair share.” She told the councilors that “lots of things could be done this year, before next spring. We’re not talking about major renovations. It’s not a big park.” City Manager Scott Myers assured the council that some immediate improvements could be made, like adding picnic tables and benches, without doing anything permanent that would impede the planned reconfiguration of the park next year. “I’d just like to see them (the Parks and Recreation Department) get off the dime and do something at

Twins for $2000

at reduced speed minimizes both the risk and the severity of accidents. DOT noted that withing the current broad expanse of pavement, the travel lanes are delineated only with paint. Some drivers already ignore the designated travel lanes, using the wide shoulders as a second travel lane contrary to the intent of the design. The state noted that lane marking would frequently be obscured during the winter. Finally, each of the three approaches of the roundabout will have a marked pedestrian crossing where traffic has slowed as opposed to one crossing on Rte. 11-B, which is approximately 100 feet from the center of the temporary intersection. Work on the roundabout is scheduled to resume in the fall. Wyatt Park,” Baer persisted, “and not put it off year after year.” She said that in May some 100 residents of the neighborhood attended a meeting at the Community Center about the future of the park and many left eager to participate in the effort to renovate it. “people are losing their enthusiasm and walking away,” she said because nothing has been done. Myers pointed out that the Wyatt-Park-South End Community Revitalization Project is meeting tonight at the Community Center at 7 p.m. and said that he would advise the staff of the Parks and recreation Department that the time has come for a decision, not discussion, about the park. He repeated that timely investment would produce immediate results and suggested designating $50,000, consisting of the two $25,000 appropriations for playground improvement, to Wyatt Park. Councilor Henry Lipman (Ward 3) offered the motion, which carried without dissent on the understanding that nothing would be done that would hinder more extensive improvements to the park to be undertaken next year. NOTES: Paul Moynihan, Director of Public Works, reported to the City Council that Don Smith, who was hired for 15 weeks at $600 per week, to enhance the appearance of downtown, Lakeport and The Weirs has swept the streets and sidewalk, pulled weeds, collected trash in all three neighborhoods. see next page

WEIRS from page one talked to her abutters and has no interest in how it affects us.” The tension between the two property owners is only the most recent of several similar disputes between those offering entertainment and those selling sleep. “It’s an age old problem,” said City Councilor Ava Doyle, whose Sun Valley Cottages are very near the Heat restaurant and across the street from the Broken Spoke Saloon. In 2009, the Weirs Beach Lobster Pound and Naswa Resort met stiff resistance from innkeepers and residents when they proposed amending the ordinance to permit amplified music until midnight seven nights a week between Memorial Day and Columbus Day. A year later the City Council rejected a compromise that would have extended the hours only on Fridays and Saturdays. When Anthony and Jay Santagate, owners of the Tower Hill Tavern, applied to convert the second floor of their building to a music venue in 2011, neighboring hotel and cottage owners objected. The Planning Board hired an acoustic engineer to review the Santagate’s plan for containing the sound who is expected to submit his recommendations shortly. This spring Christina Contardo proposed staging an electronic music festival over two nights in August on 6.5 acres of open ground in the woods west of Funspot. After initially asking to extend the hours to 2 a.m. she agreed to midnight in the face of opposition and abandoned the project when the council refused to relax the limits prescribed by the ordinance. “I am going by the letter of the law,” said Cook, who noted that her permit mirrors those granted to other venues, including the Lobster Pound, Broken Spoke Saloon, Boot Hill Saloon, Naswa Resort and Marketplace. She said that she has booked three outdoor concerts in August and hopes to add to the list while also making the space available to farmers’s markets, flea markets and craft shows. “It’s all part of the plan for from preceding page he said, noting that the project was among the strategic goals set by the council earlier in the year. . . . . . The council scheduled a public hearing on a resolution to borrow $1.1-million for capital expenditures for August 13. The borrowing includes $380,000 for a fire engine to replace Engine Number One, $580,000 to replace vehicles at the Department of Public Works and $140,000 to construct a storage building at the Department of Public Works. . . . . . The council authorized

the property,” she said. Heavey expressed concerned that Cook could offer amplified music seven days a week. Pine Hollow, he described as “a family campground” that draws the elderly and new borns and everyone in between. Some stay the whole season, others for a week or two and someone just for a weekend.” Heavey said that that his patrons have come to expect Motorcycle Week, explaining that some of his seasonal campers leave during the rally. “One said he would bill for their hotel room,” he joked. But, the prospect of live music next door throughout the summer Heavey said “is just a little over the top.” He conceded that Cook is entitled to earn a living from her property, but “not at the expense vacationers and campers.” He suggested that she could move the music inside. He said that city officials assured him they would monitor concerts at the Heat for sound, but for the moment remarked “I guess I can only wait and see.” Cook confessed that she had not spoken directly with Heavey, noting that the two have had differences in the past and doubting they could reach agreement. At the same time, she stressed that “I am willing to address anyone’s reasonable concerns.” However, she insisted that entertainment draws people to The Weirs. “If it’s quiet nobody comes back,” she said. “Nobody goes on vacation to go to sleep at 10 o’clock. “ Cook acknowledged that residential development has altered the character of The Weirs, calling it “a game changer.” Planning Director Shanna Saunders estimates some 1,500 units have been permitted in the last decade. Moreover, a number of motels and cottage colonies have been converted to condominium ownership. “Everybody is going to Meredith because they have hotels,” said Cook, who believes the economy of The Weirs now depends on offering opportunities for entertainment. “This is about the identity of The Weirs,” she remarked.

The fencing was recommended by the United States Department of Agriculture as a public safety measure after a wildlife hazard assessment at the airport last year. The Airport Authority will contribute $6,500 to match the grant and meet the full cost of the project. — Michael Kitch

The former Our Lady of the Lakes Catholic Church in Lakeport has been purchased by the Evangelical  Baptist Church of Laconia for $700,000. (Laconia Daily Sun photo/Adam Drapcho)

CHURCH from page one The campus of the former Our Lady of the Lakes is three buildings — the sanctuary that also has classrooms in the lower level; the gymnasium; and the convent. Most of the buildings were built in the mid 1960s. Provan said the Evangelical Baptist Church is renting office space in the Strafford House and hopes to relocate the offices to the former convent by September 1. As for the church itself, he said the goal is to be holding services there by January 2013. Provan said the Evangelical Baptist Church has had two separate capital campaigns over the past four years to put together enough money to relocate from their current home in the historic church building on Veteran’s Square. He said the Church is working with a realtor to sell the church, which was originally located on the corner in front to the library. “We are excited, we really are, “Provan said. He said they have already hired an architect and are looking to hire a contract to being

some work on the sanctuary and the classrooms. According to a record of the accounting distributed at masses held at the St. Andre Bessette over the weekend, there was a deposit of $4,500, the real estate stamp cast $5,250 and the realtor’s commission was $56,000. Of the $634,250 of the amount due from the Evangelical Baptist Church to St. Andre Bessette, there is a promissory note from the Baptist to the Catholics for $230,000 that Provan said it payable over five years. The amount paid to St. Andre Bessette Parish was $404,250 of which $307,758 was paid to the Diocese for assessments, insurances and loans for 2012. An additional $68,223 was used to satisfy a $68,233 loan to Sacred Heart Cemetery. The balance of $28,257 is in the parish saving’s account while some of the proceeds from the promissory note will go to satisfy the balance of a $70,000 loan by St. Andre Bessette to the Sacred Heart Cemetery.

Gilford man charged with trying to strangle his wife GILFORD — A local man was ordered held on $5,000 cash bail after allegedly strangling his wife during an argument the two had over a distributor cap. Police said Michael Balch, 46, of 14 Flower Drive allegedly held the victim down on a love seat with his knees while twisting his hand and squeezing the victim’s throat, “enough to leave a large red area on the front of her throat and fingers marks of the left side of her neck.” She told police she had to kick him in the stomach

to make his stop. The victim told police that Balch often didn’t get along well with people and this was exacerbated when he drank. She said he had been “on edge” for the past few days. According to police, Balch also damaged the victim’s car by breaking the windshield and the side window of her car. He is charged with one count of second-degree assault and one count of criminal mischief. — Gail Ober

HEPATITIS from page 3 April 2011 until May, when he was fired after the outbreak was discovered. According to court documents, Kwiatkowski told investigators he did not steal drugs, is “not a shooter,” and is scared of needles. He also said he was allergic to fentanyl, the powerful anesthetic he’s accused of stealing, though medical records indicate he was given the drug during a medical procedure in 2011. Former co-workers in other states told investigators that Kwiatkowski was known for telling false

stories, including saying that he had cancer. According to court documents, he was fired for falsifying his timesheets at one hospital, was accused of stealing fentanyl from a hospital operating room in 2008 and aroused significant suspicion in Exeter, where co-workers said he sometimes looked like he was “on something.” But the head of the cardiac lab said Kwiatkowski provided plausible explanations related to either personal medical issues or family crises whenever co-workers raised questions.

MAINE GUNS from page 3 Donovan said. “It’s very scary.” In New Hampshire, Courtois’ former boss said he heard from the FBI on Sunday night and was told that Courtois had named him as his intended target. The man, who asked not to be identified because of the ongoing investigation, said Courtois worked as an insurance agent in his firm from 1995 to 2000. “I hadn’t heard from him in 10 years so I was rather surprised. Only after the fact did I realize that if it were not for police stopping him, I could’ve wound up a dead person,” he said.

The man said Courtois was a good employee who left his job voluntarily. He was offered a share of the business but didn’t like the payment amount offered to him when he left, the man said. Courtois was charged with speeding and possession of a concealed weapon. He made an initial appearance in Springvale District Court on Monday afternoon and was ordered held on bail, Donovan said. The officer did not know the amount. Both the York County district attorney’s office and the U.S. attorney’s office are reviewing the case.

SHOOTING from page 2 Authorities have declined to confirm if Holmers told officers that he was Batman’s enemy. Investigators found a Batman mask inside his apartment, a law enforcement official close to the investigation said Sunday on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the news media. Holmes, whom police say donned body armor and was armed with an assault rifle, a shotgun and handguns during the attack, was arrested shortly afterward. His home was booby-trapped with a trip wire, explosives and unknown liquids that took a

day to disarm. Police have said Holmes began buying guns at Denver-area stores nearly two months before Friday’s shooting and that he received at least 50 packages in four months at his home and at school. Holmes, who is being held in isolation, is refusing to cooperate, authorities said. They said it could take months to identify a motive. The shooting was the worst in the U.S. since the Nov. 5, 2009, attack at Fort Hood, Texas. An Army psychiatrist was charged with killing 13 soldiers and civilians and wounding more than two dozen others.

75 players compete in revival of Bob Dearborn 3 on 3 tournament LACONIA — On Saturday, the Parks and Recreation Department and the School District teamed up to revive the Bob Dearborn 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament. B-ball fans responded, with 75 players, comprising 11 teams, showing up for the competition on the courts at Wyatt Park. “The weather was fantastic, our volunteers were fantastic,” reported Amy Lovisek of Parks & Rec. City councilors, the mayor and school department officials joined others in helping to facilitate the tournament. Jeff Noyes, Jeff Greeley, Jim Babcock and Chet Cilley served as referees. By the end of double-elimination play, the winners of the Elementary Division were the “Laconia Ballers”, Bryce McCrea, Ryan Dee, Logan Dee and Karter Greenwood. The Middle

School Division was won by the “Blue Bulldogs,” Christopher Marden, Doug Price, Trevor Hunt, Corey Derosier and Kaleb Hibbard. Aidan Dean, Jake Sullivan, Jake Sykes and Josh Emond of team “Something” won the High School Division. The Adult Division was won by Brady O’Neil, Drew Forsberg and Christian Birt of “Sharp Shooters.” “The positive sportsmanship that was shown by every single age group was absolutely outstanding,” said Lovisek. Bob Champlin, superintendent of schools, added, “It was a hoot.” “Thank you to everyone that was involved, it was a fantastic effort,” said Lovisek, adding that the tournament will be held again in 2013. — Adam Drapcho

PENN STATE from page 2 dozen alumni and students gasped, groaned and whistled as they watched Emmert’s news conference. The news was a crushing blow to many students. Nicole Lord, a senior, questioned why Penn State’s student body, and especially its athletes, should be punished “for the wrongs of three men and a monster.” “They keep breaking our hearts and breaking our hearts and breaking our hearts,” she said. Sandusky, a former member of Paterno’s coaching staff, was found guilty in June of sexually abusing 10 boys over 15 years, sometimes on campus. An investigation commissioned by the school and released July 12 found that Paterno, who died of lung cancer in January at age 85, and three other top officials at Penn State concealed accusations against Sandusky for fear of bad publicity. The NCAA’s punishment was announced a day after the school took down a statue of Paterno that stood outside Beaver Stadium. The sanctions will make it difficult for the Nittany Lions to compete at the sport’s highest level. Raising the specter of an exodus of athletes, the NCAA said current or incoming football players are free to immediately transfer and compete at another school. For a university that always claimed to hold itself to a higher standard — for decades, Paterno preached “success with honor” — Monday’s announcement completed a stunning fall from grace. Paterno’s family said in a statement that the sanctions “defame the legacy and contributions of a great coach and educator.” “This is not a fair or thoughtful action; it is a panicked response to the public’s understandable revulsion at what Sandusky did,” the family said. Emmert said the penalties reflect “the magnitude of these terrible acts” and also “ensure that Penn State will rebuild an athletic culture that went horribly awry.” He said the NCAA considered imposing the death penalty, or a complete shutdown of football for a season or more, but worried about the collateral damage. “Suspension of the football program

would bring with it significant unintended harm to many who had nothing to do with this case,” Emmert said. “The sanctions we have crafted are more focused and impactful than that blanket penalty.” Gov. Tom Corbett expressed gratitude that Penn State escaped the death penalty, saying it would have had a “severe detrimental impact on the citizens of State College, Centre County and the entire commonwealth of Pennsylvania.” A drop-off in attendance and revenue could damage both the university, where the football team is a moneymaker that subsidizes other sports, and much of central Pennsylvania, where Saturday afternoon football at Penn State is an important part of the economy. But given Penn State’s famously ardent fans and generous benefactors, the precise economic impact on Penn State and Happy Valley, as the surrounding area is known, remains unclear. First-year coach Bill O’Brien, who was hired to replace Paterno, will have the daunting task of trying to keep players from fleeing the program while luring new recruits. “I knew when I accepted the position that there would be tough times ahead,” O’Brien said. Already, at least one recruit, Ross Douglas, a defensive back from Avon, Ohio, backed out of his commitment. Douglas told on Monday: “We prepared ourselves for it, and today was just the icing on the cake. I love Penn State to death, but I have to do what’s best for me, and I’m going to look elsewhere.” Separately, the Big Ten announced that Penn State will not be allowed to share in the conference’s bowl revenue during the NCAA’s postseason ban, an estimated loss of about $13 million. Emmert fast-tracked the penalties rather than go through the usual circuitous series of investigations and hearings. The NCAA said the $60 million fine is equivalent to the annual gross revenue of the football program. The money will go toward outside programs devoted to preventing child sexual abuse or assisting victims.

Slumping Red Sox pounded in Texas, 9-1 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Scott Feldman, starting after Roy Oswalt was scratched with back tightness, threw seven strong innings to lead the Texas Rangers to a 9-1 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Monday night. Feldman (4-6) won his fourth straight decision and pitched his longest outing since throwing eight innings on June 2, 2010. He gave up one earned run and seven hits with five strikeouts. Just before the game started, it was learned Texas starting pitcher Colby Lewis will miss the rest of the season because of a torn flexor tendon in his right elbow that will require surgery. Martin Perez, who was called up on Monday after Lewis was placed on the disabled list, will start Tuesday’s game against the Red Sox, but he would have been available out of the bullpen if Feldman had faltered early. In three games against Boston this season, the Rangers have outscored the Red Sox 33-7. Ian Kinsler went 3-for-4 and Craig Gentry went 2-for-4 with an RBI for Texas. Josh Hamilton and Mike Napoli both had two RBIs in the Rangers’ first home game since July 8. Boston’s only run came on a home run by Jarrod

Saltalamacchia in the second inning. Saltalamacchia’s 19th home run of the season sailed 422 feet to right-center field with two outs. The Red Sox, who have lost 12 of 18, left eight base runners on base. In the third, Texas scored three earned runs against Boston starter Felix Doubront (10-5). Gentry singled and Kinsler walked, then a double steal put the two at second and third. Elvis Andrus run-scoring singled to stretch his hitting streak to 11 games. Dustin Pedroia overthrew first base to let Kinsler score. Hamilton drove in a run with a double and Michael Young’s oneout single scored Hamilton to make it 4-1. In the sixth, Napoli hit his third home run in as many games, a two-run shot that traveled 416 feet to left field that made it 6-1. That hit knocked out Doubront, who pitched five innings and gave up six earned runs and eight hits. Frankin Morales relieved Doubront and gave up three-straight hits to Brandon Snyder (double), Gentry and Kinsler. Gentry’s single drove in Snyder, and Gentry scored on an error by Boston left fielder Carl Crawford after Kinsler’s single. Hamilton hit a sacrifice fly for a 9-1 lead.

Europe shaken by fear Spain will need full bailout

FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — Europe is on the brink again. The region’s debt crisis flared on Monday as fears intensified that Spain would be next in line for a government bailout. A recession is deepening in Spain, the fourthlargest economy that uses the euro currency, and a growing number of its regional governments are seeking financial lifelines to make ends meet. The interest rate on Spanish government bonds soared in a sign of waning market confidence in the country’s ability to pay off its debts. The prospect of bailing out Spain is worrisome for Europe because the potential cost far exceeds what’s available in existing emergency funds. Financial markets are also growing uneasy about Italy, another major European economy with large debts and a feeble economy. Stocks fell sharply across Europe and around the world. Germany’s DAX plunged 3.18 percent. Britain’s FTSE dropped 2 percent and France’s CAC 40 fell 2.89 percent. In midday trading on Wall Street, the Dow Jones industrial average was down 1.35

percent. The euro slipped just below $1.21 against the dollar, its lowest reading since June 2010. The interest rate on its 10-year bond hit 7.56 percent in the morning, its highest level since Spain joined the euro in 1999. Concern over Spain increased Monday after the country’s central bank said the economy shrank by 0.4 percent during the second quarter, compared with the previous three months. The government predicts the economy won’t return to growth until 2014 as new austerity measures hurt consumers and businesses. On top of that, Spain is facing new costs as a growing number of regional governments ask federal authorities for assistance. The eastern region of Valencia revealed Friday it would need a bailout from the central Madrid government. Over the weekend, the southern region of Murcia said it may also need help. Spain has already required an emergency loan package of up to €100 billion ($121 billion) to bail out its banks. But that aid hasn’t quelled markets because the government is ultimately liable to repay the money.

off containers, have them verified by a certified chemist, and then pick up an item that can be used in their home. This is a great way of using up hazardous products and diverting them from the waste stream. Water pollution may not come to mind when you decide to repaint your kitchen or stain your deck; however, oil-based paints and stains, along with many other products, can contaminate the Lakes Region’s water supply if disposed of improperly. Examples of other hazardous products include: most household cleaners, fluorescent bulbs, pool chemicals, and lawn and garden products. Most household products that have “Danger”, “Poison”, “Corrosive” or “Toxic” printed on the label need to be disposed of at a collection event, such as the collections held in the Lakes Region annually. Items that will not be accepted include: latex paints, propane tanks, tires, and alkaline batteries. Check with your local transfer station for proper disposal of these items. This annual collection process was initiated by the Lakes Region Planning Commission twenty-five years ago. In the past three years, more than 58,000 gallons of hazardous waste were collected from Lakes Region residents. Additionally, more than 20 miles of fluorescent bulbs and nearly 4,000 compact fluorescent bulbs were collected.


MEREDITH — This year, 24 Lakes Region communities are participating in the annual Lakes Region Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collections program which takes place on the next two Saturdays. On Saturday July 28, from 8:30 a.m to noon collections will be held in Belmont, Franklin, Gilford, and Meredith. On Saturday August 4 from 8:30 a.m. to noon collections will be held in Bristol, Center Ossipee, Laconia, and Moultonborough. Residents and taxpayers of Alexandria, Andover, Belmont, Bridgewater, Bristol, Center Harbor, Effingham, Franklin, Freedom, Gilford, Gilmanton, Hebron, Hill, Holderness, Laconia, Meredith, Moultonborough, New Hampton, Northfield, Ossipee, Sanbornton, Sandwich, Tamworth, and Tilton are eligible and encouraged to bring their hazardous waste products to the participating facility that is most convenient. To be assured of disposal, those taking part should not wait to come at the last minute; in the rare case that a site fills up or exceeds its budget, the gates may be closed before noon. When bringing hazardous material to the collection facilities, be advised that the quantity of hazardous waste accepted from each household is limited to ten gallons or fifty pounds. Products should be kept in their original containers with all the lids tightly secured. If there is a leak in the container, place it in a larger container and add an absorbent substance such as cat litter or paint hardener (available at your local hardware store). To ensure safe transport, products should be placed in a cardboard box in the trunk. This will also ensure a quick dropoff upon arrival. If heading to Laconia’s Public Works Garage for dropoff, check out their Swap Table. Here, residents can drop

Three old barns & a carriage house on Science Center Barn Tour July 28 HOLDERNESS — It’s easy to forget, as we hike through dense forests, cruise the sparkling lakes, or golf the green links, that the first English settlers in central New Hampshire were farmers. These now wooded fields and hills were once bare of trees, lake shore was considered waste land, and no adult had much time in summer to play. Little now remains of the agrarian beginnings of New Hampshire. Most of the growing going on is in pampered gardens or in the steadily reforesting fields. Only the recycled farmsteads, and their sturdy barns, still testify to this lost legacy. And they and their successors also tell us much about the steady transition from self-sufficient farm, through gentleman farm and summer retreat, to the second home community New Hampshire’s Lakes Region is today. Some of the surviving barns, all in Holderness, and one carriage house in Center Harbor are on a barn tour, sponsored by the Squam Lake Natural Science Center to support the work of Kirkwood Gardens, on Saturday, July 28 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The True Farm dates to the early settler days and the barn there was probably built around 1820. It still retains the look of those early days. Science Center staff will be at True Farm to talk about the wildlife that often make a home in these iconic farm shelters.

This Carriage House in Center Harbor is one of four fine buildings on the Science Center Barn Tour, Saturday July 28, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (Courtesy photo)

The Pinehurst barn is an example of a barn that grew. Younger than the True Farm barn, it was probably built in the late 1800s when the farm had already begun the transition to gentleman’s farmhood. Like the summer colony around it, it was expanded through the years and is today one of the largest barns in the area. The Pemvale Barn literally rose from the ashes. Ancestors of the current owners originally came to

the area from Uxbridge, Massachusetts to work at a relatives boarding house. In 1908 they bought an existing farm, but shortly after settling into their new home the barn was struck by lightning and burned, along with other buildings on the property. For a time, while they rebuilt, the owners lived in the icehouse on the property. The new barn, built in 1910, was larger than the original and was a replica of their former barn in Uxbridge. Finally, and still representing the continued transition of the Lakes Region from agricultural community to vacation haven, the handsome carriage house at one of the former Dane properties in Center Harbor is modeled on a carriage house in Brookline Massachusetts. The four stops on this tour can be visited in any order; but regardless of the order, the narration of development and change of the Lakes Region is wonderfully demonstrated by these four fascinating buildings. This tour benefits the Kirkwood Gardens at Squam Lake Natural Science Center and is in affiliation with the Squam National Register Iniatiative and co-sponsored by the New Hampshire Preservation Alliance. Tickets for the tour can be obtained by calling or visiting the Science Center at 968-7194. Further information will be given out upon registration.

MANCHESTER — Circle K, Irving Oil and Special Olympics are teaming up to support more than 2,600 athletes in NH through the 2012 Fueling Dreams promotion. The annual fundraiser will run from July 9 to August 5 at Circle K stores and Irving dealer locations across the state. Local law enforcement officers will partner with local Special Olympics Programs and Circle K and Irving employees on July 28 for To Serve and Protect Day. This day-long event partners law enforcement officers, along with Special Olympics athletes, who pump gas and wash windows for donations at locations around the state. Throughout the three week promotion, Circle K stores are selling window clings to their customers as a way to raise money for Special Olympics. “Our continued partnership with Circle K and Irving in addition to providing great awareness of our Movement, allows Special Olympics New Hampshire to continue to live out our mission through the dollars raised from their support,” said Mary Conroy, Special Olympics New Hampshire (SONH) President. The three week promotion is the largest U.S.

fundraiser for Circle K and Irving. The partnership with Special Olympics began in 1999 to benefit the Law Enforcement Torch Run, the largest fundraiser worldwide for Special Olympics. Since then, the event has grown throughout New England and has raised more than $2 million which supports over 28,000 Special Olympics athletes in New England each year. Last year this partnership raised $297,632 for Special Olympics programs in New England with $131,343 of that raised in New Hampshire. The support of Circle K and Irving during this promotion and throughout the year helps Special Olympics New Hampshire provide year-round sport training and competition in 20 sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. In addition to sports programs Special Olympics New Hampshire also provides leadership training to their athletes, works with partners like the New Hampshire Interscholastic Athletic Association to help provide more inclusive school environments for all high school students, and every year Special Olympics New Hampshire offers free health screenings for athletes.

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis a gigantic hassle. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You may find yourself in the unfortunate position of having to point out someone’s shortcoming. Luckily, you have a talent for putting a positive spin on things. You’ll start by finding something nice to say. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). People have a way of getting under your skin by refusing to act sensibly or thoughtfully. Make sure that you’re rested and that your needs are met, and you’ll be impervious to irritation. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The limitations placed in your path by the outside world are the least difficult to get past. The hardest limitations to break through are the ones you impose on yourself. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Enlist help and take care of unfinished business. You won’t be able to do it all on your own. Physically, you are capable, but unless you involve others, you’ll get too bored with the process. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). All you’re trying to do is make sure the people around you are treated fairly and treat one another fairly, too. Though it’s not your intention to start a movement, you will be the instigator of change. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 24). Dreams are the fuel that speed you through this year. Whatever shape your refueling station takes, make a point to stop in, rest and recharge your batteries in August. September brings an important financial decision. You’ll move or change for love in November. You’ll sock away savings in January. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 25, 49, 30 and 25. Cancer and Sagittarius people adore you.

by Chad Carpenter

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The most important thing to accomplish today is a state of relaxation. Being relaxed, you’ll either do a job or not do a job, and everyone will feel good about it either way. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The sky may be above you, but it is also inside you. With every breath you take, you intermingle your essence with the sky and exhale your interpretation of the universe. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Someone’s tendency to over-share makes you very sensitive to the pitfalls of revealing information that’s not useful to the situation at hand. You’ll strive for a healthy balance between honesty and tact. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll watch a problem from the sidelines and decide when and whether it would be right to intervene. Sooner would be better than later. Step in, give your two cents, and then get out. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You don’t see yourself as a guardian of truth who swoops down from on high to impart your wisdom to those who, without you, wouldn’t have a clue. Instead, you are learning along with everyone else -and loving the camaraderie. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). In the same way that compost can help a garden immensely, anger in the right measurement can be a positive dynamic that leads to growth. How much of it exists and how it’s directed will be key. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your impulse to move is tempered by caution. He who hesitates may lose out, but that can be an extremely good thing if the thing you’re losing out on is

Page 22 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, July 24, 2012

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Tuesday, July 24, the 206th day of 2012. There are 160 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 24, 1862, Martin Van Buren, the eighth president of the United States, and the first to have been born a U.S. citizen, died at age 79 in Kinderhook, N.Y., the town where he was born in 1782. On this date: In 1783, Latin American revolutionary Simon Bolivar was born in Caracas. In 1847, Mormon leader Brigham Young and his followers arrived in the Great Salt Lake Valley in present-day Utah. In 1866, Tennessee became the first state to be readmitted to the Union after the Civil War. In 1911, Yale University history professor Hiram Bingham III found the “Lost City of the Incas,” Machu Picchu, in Peru. In 1937, the state of Alabama dropped charges against four of the nine young black men accused of raping two white women in the “Scottsboro Case.” In 1952, President Harry S. Truman announced a settlement in a 53-day steel strike. In 1959, during a visit to Moscow, Vice President Richard Nixon engaged in his famous “Kitchen Debate” with Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev. In 1969, the Apollo 11 astronauts — two of whom had been the first men to set foot on the moon — splashed down safely in the Pacific. In 1974, the Supreme Court unanimously ruled that President Richard Nixon had to turn over subpoenaed White House tape recordings to the Watergate special prosecutor. In 1983, a two-run homer by George Brett of the Kansas City Royals was disallowed after New York Yankees manager Billy Martin pointed out there was too much pine tar on Brett’s bat. However, American League president Lee MacPhail reinstated the home run. In 1987, Hulda Crooks, a 91-year-old mountaineer from California, became the oldest woman to conquer Mount Fuji, Japan’s highest peak. One year ago: Thousands of protesters angry about Spain’s brutal economic woes once again filled Madrid’s downtown Sol square after many had spent weeks marching hundreds of miles from far-flung cities across the country. Cadel (kuh-DEHL’) Evans won the Tour de France, becoming the first Australian champion in cycling’s greatest race. Today’s Birthdays: Actress Jacqueline Brookes is 82. Actor John Aniston is 79. Political cartoonist Pat Oliphant is 77. Comedian Ruth Buzzi is 76. Actor Mark Goddard is 76. Actor Dan Hedaya is 72. Actor Chris Sarandon is 70. Comedian Gallagher is 66. Actor Robert Hays is 65.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, July 24, 2012— Page 25


Dear Annie: I’ve been with my boyfriend for eight years and find that I’m not as happy as I used to be. But we have a child together, which makes it harder to decide what to do. For the past few years, I have been talking to another man. Nothing has happened between us, but we are very attracted to each other. We hang out occasionally, and I can’t stop thinking about him. He has a child with his live-in girlfriend, so he’s in the same position as I am. I don’t know what to do. My relationship is bumpy and stressful, but I have a hard time leaving. -- Vermont Dear Vermont: You have a commitment not only to your boyfriend, but to your child. It means you don’t behave selfishly and rashly, or in ways that will hurt them. Being attracted to someone else is not unusual, but acting on those feelings puts you in the wrong. If your current relationship is “bumpy and stressful,” please get counseling with your partner to see whether you can put yourselves back on track. Whatever the outcome, cheating is not the answer. Dear Annie: Our son is in a wheelchair. The van we use for his transportation has a ramp that makes loading and unloading simple. But in order for us to use the ramp, we need a handicapped parking space that is next to a wide, striped area. Unfortunately, often someone parks next to us in the striped area before we return to the van, which then makes access to the ramp impossible. We can’t decide whether it’s ignorance or arrogance that makes people do this. Are they not aware that any striped area is a no-parking zone? A few years ago, we were at a local mall at Christmastime, and parking was at a premium. We were fortunate to find a handicapped space near the entrance. When we returned to

the van, a car had squeezed into the adjacent blue-striped area. It required leaving my son unattended behind the other vehicle while I pulled my car out. What made matters worse was that mall security was present and did nothing. It makes my blood boil to see people use the striped areas. Some of these people have handicapped placards or plates, so I guess they think that makes it OK. It does NOT. The striped areas are there to provide safe passage for individuals using wheelchairs, walkers or crutches, and for the less able-bodied to get in and out of their vehicles. The more inclement the weather the worse this problem is. And sometimes even the local police use these areas to park. What kind of an example are they setting? -- Seeing Red About Blue Dear Red: A poor one. We know that some people are dismissive of handicapped spaces and park wherever they want. But most people try to be respectful, so we assume they don’t realize that these adjacent striped areas are intended to be used for ramps, wheelchairs and other necessities. Please, folks, life can be challenging enough for those with disabilities. Let’s not make it harder. Dear Annie: This is in response to “Free To Be Me.” I, too, have lived in a verbally abusive marriage for more than 40 years, but in my case, I am the husband, and she is the bully. Change the pronouns, and I could have written that letter. I want to thank “Free” for giving me the courage to file for divorce. As a result, I, too, must walk away from everything: family, friends, church, home and most of my income. Many people sit in silent desperation waiting for their life to pass by. I did that for years, but now it is time to move on. -- Being Me, Too
