Nitric acid leak leads to evacuation of area near Winni River BY GAIL OBER


LACONIA — Fire crews from as far away as Concord, state fire inspectors, a hazard mitigation team and representatives from the Department of Environmental Services converged on Cook Court off Court Street yesterday morning after a 275 gallon drum of nitric acid at ABC Fabrications began

ventilating. Fire Chief Ken Erickson said firefighters responded to an alarm at 5:15 a.m. and the duty crew entered the building wearing bunker gear. He said they didn’t notice any fire but said there was an irritating odor in the building and a red cloud of vapors was hanging in the air. He said the lieutenant in charge ordered everybody out

of the building and called for a first alarm. Six firefighters were sent to the hospital and Erickson said yesterday afternoon they were evaluated and released. An on-line hazmat website site said breathing red vapors associated with nitric acid can cause serious lung damage as well as burns to any exposed skin. Erickson confirmed this and

said he used the guidelines determined by hazard mitigation experts to determine the size of the area he needed evacuated and the type of equipment firefighters used to enter the building. Erickson said when they learned it was a barrel of nitric acid leaking, he ordered the evacuation of the immediate see ACID page 10

Matter of adult entertainment permit back in selectmen’s lap tonight BY GAIL OBER


GILFORD — As selectmen prepare to determine the status of the exotic entertainment license of a local nightclub, the war of words between Town Administrator Scott Dunn and club owner Willard Drew is escalating. Since the last meeting, when selectmen tabled the matter because the final ruling from the N.H. State Liquor Commission was not known, Drew learned on July 18 that his liquor license would be suspended for three days — yesterday, today and tomorrow — and that he would face a total of $350 in fines. The commission exonerated him on the most serious charge of allowing his business to be used for unlawful purposes. Although the police chief, the fire chief and see GILFORD page 9

AURORA, Colo. (AP) — Batman star Christian Bale visited survivors of the Colorado theater shooting Tuesday, and thanked medical staff and police officers who responded to the attack that killed 12 people and injured 58 others. Bale visited with little advance warning and also stopped by a makeshift memorial to victims near the movie theater that was showing “The Dark Knight Rises” when the gunfire erupted. Carey Rottman, one of those injured in Friday’s shooting, posted two photos of himself with Bale on his Facebook page. Janie Bowman-Hayes, assistant vice president of surgical services at sister hospital Swedish Medical Center, said she and co-workers were attending a luncheon at The Medical Center of Aurora to thank staff who tended to victims. “When we got there, then we found out he was there,” she said.

In Colorado, Holmes was surrounded by brain experts CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) — James Holmes spent a year in a small neuroscience doctoral program, surrounded by scientists and roughly three dozen classmates delving into the inner workings of the brain. The University of Colorado, Denver, isn’t saying if they had any warning signs. Experts say, however, the intimacy of the program and its focus on the brain may not have been enough for staff and students to detect that Holmes was on a course that police say ended with a deadly rampage at a

midnight showing of the new Batman movie. Supported by a prestigious federal grant, Holmes, 24, was in the first year of a program at the Anschutz Medical Campus dedicated to neuroscience, studying such topics as how the brain works or malfunctions or helping develop drugs to treat epilepsy and other disorders. But it is not behavioral science or psychology, experts say. David Eagleman, who runs the Initiative on Neuroscience and the Law at Baylor University, said some neuroscientists are

experts in mental illnesses and aberrant behavior, but others spend most of their time studying molecular chemistry. “It’s really only a fraction of professors” who could identify a simmering mental disorder, Eagleman said. “Many people in neuroscience are not specialized in the issue of picking up mental illness ... There are plenty of people who just study mice and cats and stuff like that.” Holmes is accused of methodically stockpiling weapons and explosives at work and see BRAIN page 10

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Unable to rein in hundreds of medical pot shops that blossomed around the nation’s second-biggest city, lawmakers voted Tuesday to ban them until it has clearer guidance from the state’s highest court. The 14-0 vote by the Los Angeles City Council drew an angry, profanity-laced response from some medical marijuana advocates who attended the council meeting. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa was pre-

pared to sign the ordinance, according to his spokeswoman Vicki Curry. The storefront ban would then go into effect after 30 days. In the interim, letters will be sent to as many as 900 dispensaries advising them of the ban. The city has fumbled with its medical marijuana laws for years, trying to provide safe and affordable access to the drug for legitimate patients while addressing wor-

ries by neighborhood groups that streets were being overrun by dispensaries and pot users. “Relief is on the way,” said Councilman Jose Huizar, who introduced the so-called “gentle ban.” Many cities have struggled with medical marijuana ordinances, but none has had a bigger problem than Los Angeles, where pot shops have proliferated.

Finally, N.H. will apply for waiver to get out from under No Child Left Behind By Shir haBerman PORTSMOUTH HERALD

NORTH HAMPTON — In June, North Hampton School officials began a discussion of the steps that are mandated by the state since the school failed to meet its Adequate Yearly Progress standard for a group of special-education students under the federal No Child Left Behind Act. However, SAU 21 Superintendent Robert Sullivan told the members of the administration and School Board at that meeting, that there may not be a need to adhere to those requirements. “The state Board of Education is drafting a letter to apply for a waiver from No Child Left Behind,” Sullivan said. “They are going to have discussions with the federal government in July, and something may be in place by October.” On Friday, state Deputy Commissioner of Education Paul Leather confirmed his department is again working to exempt the state from the provisions of the federal law. As of Thursday, 32 states had received waivers from the education accountability standards of the federal act. “We haven’t submitted our application yet, but we’re looking at doing so for the third round (in September),” Leather said. “We would like to see it put in place for the next school year.” This marks a dramatic shift in the state’s position. In February, the Board of Education issued a statement indicating it would not seek a waiver. “It is our collective belief that New Hampshire and Maine — in order to create an accountability system that meets the needs of learners in our states — need to implement a fundamentally new

theory of change regarding accountability,” stated a Feb. 13 letter to U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan, signed by education commissioners Virginia Barry of New Hampshire and Stephen Bowen of Maine. “Our intention is to develop our new state accountability system over the next 18 months for full implementation with the 2013-2014 school year.” Leather explained the shift was the result of meetings state officials recently had with federal authorities to determine if there was any possibility of relaxing or changing the federal waiver requirements. He said those talks proved to be fruitful enough for the state to move forward with its waiver request. “We said New Hampshire would be interested in a waiver if it met the state’s requirements,” Leather said. “In New Hampshire, education is locally controlled.” Leather said the federal waiver requirements presupposed a state would develop a teacher evaluation and effectiveness system that would be applicable to all districts. Since education in New Hampshire is closely tied to individual communities, those accountability systems are currently based on the contractual agreements and district desires, the deputy commissioner said. “(The federal government) was asking the state to prepare a one-size-fits-all system, but that’s not the way it’s done in New Hampshire,” he said. Instead, state Department of Education officials offered to develop a model that could act as a guideline for school districts in the process of evaluating teachers and determining their effectiveness, but need not be implemented. Leather said the federal

officials indicated that, pending review, that could be enough to allow for a waiver. Should the waiver be granted, the state DOE would continue to require yearly proficiency testing of students and to post the results of that testing on its Web site for parents, educators and the community to review. However, the department’s improvement efforts would be focused on schools that scored within the lowest 15 percent in the state, what are currently called the “priority” and “focus” schools, Leather said. Other schools would still be able to take advantage of the department’s technical assistance programs that will be offered on a regional basis, Leather said, but would not be required to submit the extensive reports and data that the current system demands. “With 70 percent of the schools in the state being designated as ‘in need of improvement,’ most everyone feels the standards of No Child Left Behind have become unreasonable,” Leather said. He said state education officials anticipated NCLB, which was made into law in 2001 as a signature initiative of President George W. Bush’s administration, would be reauthorized by Congress after seven years, but with the teacher-effectiveness standards changed. That has not happened, however. Under the existing law, all school children nationally must score at “proficient” levels on standardized tests in mathematics and reading by 2014. Local and national educators have consistently said that, given the disparity in learning ability among students, that goal is unachievable, and would lead to unwarranted state and federal sanctions against see NO CHILD page 12

Where are they hiding the humans? I’m a well-trained child of the human-less world of customer “support.” I don’t ask for much. When I need an answer, I first check the FAQs (frequently asked questions). I visit forums to find others discussing similar problems and sometimes offering good advice. But every now and then, I have a problem or question for which only an informed human can help. When that happens, I want a human. I demand a human. And I don’t think I should have to roll on the floor, kicking and screaming for a human. Let me share a recent frustrating experience, typical of what one finds when a problem doesn’t fit neatly into the computer’s multiple choices and answers cannot be found online. I had ordered cable/ phone/Internet service from Verizon. The e-mail confirmation told me the installer would arrive in the 8 a.m.-to-noon time slot. If you can’t make this appointment, it said, call this number. My apartment building doesn’t open for deliveries or service calls until 9 a.m., so I punched in the phone number. Of course, I was sent to the automated-call dungeon from which it took almost an hour to emerge (or it seemed like an hour). The options were to confirm the appointment or reschedule for another date. But I didn’t want to reschedule for another date. I just wanted Verizon to slightly adjust the time slot to begin at 9 a.m. After about a half-hour going through the irrelevant, recorded choices, I was offered an opportunity to wait in a long telephonic line for a human being. When a man finally answered, I understood the audacity of my request. He started off that rules are rules. I explained that I would move heaven and earth to accommodate Verizon but couldn’t move the building to open early. (The afternoon slot went past the closing time.) Sighing deeply, the man said that to alter the installation time slot, he’d have to obtain the approval of his supervisor at Verizon. I’ll be rooting for you, I said.

I had considered other avenues for communication. My Verizon home page showed a link for online chat with a human being. Upon clicking it, I was told chat is no longer available. Forget about communicating by e-mail. The address must be a state secret written in code. No phone number. But there was “Frank,” Verizon’s customer help guy, actually a cartoon that blinks. I once typed in a question about whether I could operate the TV with one remote instead of two. Frank answered, and I quote: “For information about Regular Programming please: Select a Frequently Asked Question below that others have found helpful. Rephrase your question, being as specific as possible. Review our online forums.” The forums are where folks ask questions and other consumers respond with 12-step “fixes” that often don’t work. My question: Why could I get wireless Internet on my iPad but not my desktop? No answer on my thread, but I found a priceless piece of information on another forum: the phone number of a Verizon technician. Where was Verizon hiding this magnificent human being? With my permission, he commandeered my computer and fixed the problem in five minutes. What was the problem? Oh, these things happen, he explained. I don’t mean to single out one company. Others selling complex gadgets to millions of consumers hide their three support people in deep caves. When Verizon favored me with some of the technician’s time, it restored my faith in humanity while underscoring the need for humanity. Understood: No one wants to employ humans these days. But as long as the customers are human, companies ought to hire a few. (A member of the Providence Journal editorial board, Froma Harrop writes a nationally syndicated column from that city. She has written for such diverse publications as The New York Times, Harper’s Bazaar and Institutional Investor.)

Will this be the time to get assault weapons off the market? To the editor, A candidate for his Ph.D., he was a brilliant student who was studying neuroscience, which refers to the study of the brain and how it works in minute detail. He looks like any young person in our society. Monday, he became a mass murderer. The field of medicine and medical research still has much to learn about the workings of our brain. If he is able to be studied by the medical and psychiatric community, they just may find that he had a frontal lobe injury at some point in this life.

It is not evil as some would say, it is a tragedy for all concerned. It is one of the many ‘wake-up calls’ we have received over a period of years. Will this be the time that we become proactive about getting assault weapons off of the open market? He purchased four assault weapons in the last two months. To what end? Can the deniers and the haters of violence please get together, not only in prayer but to stop this insanity? Please. Bernadette Loesch Laconia

LETTERS It has become convenient in our culture to put a label on people To the editor, Despite Mr. Boutin’s portrayal of me as a “camouflaged socialist”, he might be surprised to know on how many issues we agree; certainly not all, but many. He does, however, highlight a concern I have, and that is the labeling of individuals. It has become convenient in today’s culture to label people as liberals, conservatives, socialist, fascist, elitists, and many other titles. By labeling an individual it is hoped to undermine his/her credibility thereby showing their views to be irrelevant. Labeling is also much easier than making an effort to know and understand an individual. As I’ve tried to express previously, most Americans cannot be labeled, they hold views that would support many different positions and are open-minded enough to judge the positive and negative of each. He then makes a ridicules conjecture, implying that I condoned the actions of Occupy Wall Street participants because I failed to denounce it in print. Using this warped logic, are we to believe that Boutin is in favor of apartheid because he has not spoken out regarding this terrible crime against humanity? His portrayal of all Occupy Wall Street participants as the scum of the earth equates to me labeling all Tea Party members as racist rednecks. Do bad elements exist

in each, certainly, but to stereotype a whole group for the actions of a minority within the group is wrong. When Boutin spoke of getting unions out of the public sector so as to assure their vote is not “poisoned”, I was a little concerned when he failed to mention the high rollers on Wall Street, political action committees, moneyed interests and others who may be “poisoned” by tax breaks and other incentives. I support Boutin in his ambitious effort to eliminate “political cronyism” but shouldn’t the playing field be level? While Boutin and I agree on the issue of “big money” in politics, and he takes great pains to castigate Obama concerning his fundraisers, he inadvertently forgets to mention the Romney campaign; and if Boutin means to “clean house” I’m sure that he would agree it needs to be looked at. To date, the Romney campaign has pulled in $389-million and counting. All of this doesn’t consider the massive Super-Pac contributions made by the wealthy and obscenely wealthy Romney supporters. Unfortunately, our political system seems more akin to “one dollar one vote” than to “one person one vote” — the best democracy money can buy. L. J. Siden Gilmanton

Obamacare will help level the playing field for small business To the editor, As a small business owner, my husband faced a disadvantage in the health insurance marketplace every month when he wrote that premium check and every year when he had to choose less coverage in order to afford it. On average, small businesses have paid about 18-percent more than large businesses for the same coverage. One of President Obama’s most important efforts on behalf of the middle class and small businesses is the Affordable Care Act. How will Obamacare level this playing field? First of all, there is no penalty on small businesses, those with fewer than 50 employees, for not providing health insur-

ance. Businesses with fewer than 25 fulltime employees with an average salary below $50,000 may be eligible for federal tax credits if they choose to pay at least 50-percent of employees’ health insurance premiums. These credits may cover up to 35-percent of the employer’s cost for premiums, increasing to 50-percent in 2014. Now that the Affordable Care Act has firmly been established as constitutional, voters need to go beyond the sound bites and educate ourselves on what health care reform offers us and what we would lose if it were repealed, as Republicans are intent on doing after the November elections.

LETTERS Do Democrats think there won’t ever be another GOP president? To the editor, Here on July 19th, Don Ewing said it and I second it: Obama lies. Obama lies to people and about people. He lied to the American people about Hillery Clinton, he lies to the American people about Mitt Romney, he played the race card against Hillery and he and his cronies never stopped playing it and this nation is now as divided and angry as I have ever in my life seen or heard it. He intends to circumvent the Constitution by edicts, treaties, and numerous illegal schemes. Do Democrats really think there will never be another Republican administration in power? Do they not cringe at the thought of a right wing power grab that will limit their free speech, their right to assemble and protest the government or form groups to work for candidates of their choice? Well that’s what Obama, Polosi, and Reed are working on right now, only their target is Republicans and Conservatives. If these things come to pass a future Republican can and likely will turn these things back against liberals, and who could blame them? Mess with the Constitution and Bill of Rights at your peril. The founders designed a Republic based on laws that for over two hundred years have protected this nation from politicians who would do as they please not as the laws and Constitution say. Obama has and is violating the laws of this nation right now. He himself in a speech a few months ago said the Constitution and laws did not

allow him to grant an amnesty to illegal aliens but last month did just that and only for political expediency. A treaty with the UN is to be signed next week that Democrats intend to use to repress the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. An amendment is being pushed to prevent corporations, organizations, and groups of like minded people from organizing to effect political events and elections. Think about that because what goes around comes around. Limit conservatives and the time will come when conservatives limit you. Better both are free to express their ideas and opinions even in rough and tumble harsh terms because no good will come from suppressing either side only a seething resentment building to explosive consequence. Take away the rights of people and even civil war is not unthinkable. You don’t believe me? Read the N.Y. Times, Washington Post, check with Fact Check about whether Romney was at Bain after 1999. Obama adds are a pack of lies; check for yourselves; prove me wrong. Note, none of the above are conservative’s sources and for a change are telling the truth. Reasonable people should understand the threat extremists, left or right, present to our nation and should reject the very extreme actions and plans of this president. Think before you vote in November. Steve Earle Hill

I wish all lawmakers would take page from Sen. Forrester’s book To the editor, This is a response to the woman in Rumney regarding her misguided attack on State Senator Jeanie Forrester. She states that Senator Forrester has “voted against the interests of N.H. voters.” I would deduce that the lady is NOT part of the majority here in New Hampshire. In my seventy plus years, I cannot think of any legislator — regardless of party affiliation — who is more communicative, responsive, committed to their job and more interested in how the voters feel than Jeanie. She has visited virtually every town in her district, publishes both newspaper accounts and e-mails in an ongoing effort to inform people about what is going on in Concord, and always closes those articles by asking people to contact her with their concerns and opinions. To my way of thinking, that is what someone who represents me should do. When she first ran for the job, she had a platform. She was elected because of that platform. She has done what she said she would do. People liked her then, and my

guess is that they will like her even more this time around because she has proven her commitment, her dedication and her sincerity. She is the real deal. Not every Senate vote is going to please every voter. This is especially true in the austere times that are upon us. Nobody likes to lose funding or income. However, if we are going to avoid the runaway spending of the Greeks, the Italians, the Spanish, three cities in California, etc. — to say nothing of our own federal government, then we have to live within our means. That means that we — all of us — have to tighten our belts, at least in the near term. When state revenues increase, the money is already earmarked to restore funding to some of the very entities that the Rumney woman mentioned. Personally, I wish that all legislators, on all levels, would take a page from Jeanie’s playbook. We need more like her. I think that she is doing a wonderful job for the people of this state. She will certainly have my vote in November, and she deserves yours, too. Ron Willoughby North Haverhill

LETTERS Gov. Romney’s views on education make me very uneasy

4th Annual ‘A Knight for the Children’ will be held on Oct. 12

To the editor, Education is very important to me because it is so important to our democracy, to our economy and indeed to the future of us all. As we all realize, an educated electorate can understand and debate complex issues. It chooses its representatives more wisely to determine the future direction of our country. A good education provides our children with the skills they need to be successful and productive members of society. It enables them to be gainfully employed in jobs that benefit our economy and provides them with the benefits of a middle class life and a secure retirement. I feel that President Obama has a long range view of the role of education and its importance to our country. He has long promoted higher standards for elementary and high school students and is insistent that teachers be highly trained and rigorously evaluated. He knows that without talented and inspiring teachers, our students will fall behind those of other nations. He realizes that the jobs of the future will require skilled workers who can be inventive and develop new technologies to solve many different problems. He wants those technologies and jobs to be created here in America, to strengthen the middle

To the editor, It’s that time of year when the Greater Lakes Child Advocacy Center begins planning its annual fundraising gala-the 4thAnnual, “A Knight for the Children,” Gala. Last year we had our most successful Gala ever to support child victims of crime living in Belknap County. Businesses and individual sponsors joined hands to support child victims of crime. Because of their generosity, more than 200 child victims received forensic interviews and connections to therapeutic treatment, medical care and other support services. The 4th Annual Gala to benefit the Greater Lakes Child Advocacy Center will be held on Friday, October 12 from 6-10 p.m. at the Lake Opechee Inn and Spa Conference Center. The evening will include dinner donated by Patrick’s Pub and Eatery, O’Steaks and Seafood, Fratello’s, T-Bones & Cactus Jack’s and Curt’s Catering. The evening will also include a cash bar, a DJ and live/silent auction. The highlight of the evening will be entertainment by International Mentalist/ Illusionist Wayne Hoffman.

He has promoted community college programs that provide workers with the specific skills needed in specific industries. His initiative to promote education in science, technology, engineering and math is forward thinking and will have influence for a long time to come. I am very uneasy with what I know about former Governor Romney’s views on education. His reputation in Massachusetts supporting education is very poor, indeed class sizes increased during his tenure there. He recently stated that America does not need more teachers (or police officers and firefighters). He and other Republicans support the “Ryan budget” and huge tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, both of which would have a devastating effect on education. He has given us no evidence at all that he values education the way I do or President Obama does. In my opinion Mr. Romney doesn’t understand the importance of education for our democracy, our economy and the future of America. President Obama really does. Lynn Thomas Meredith

We’re already planning for next year’s Barnstead Open Farm Day To the editor, The Barnstead Farmers and Gardeners Network is pleased to announce that our First Annual Open Farm Day was a tremendous success. All of our farms experienced a great turnout. First, we would like to thank all the visitors that journeyed from near and far to spend time with us. We were all glad to see you and hope that you had a wonderful visit. Thank you to the Barnstead Community Market for handing out our fliers. That was most gracious. We also want to express how grateful we are for the support that so many publications, like yours, gave to us. Our farmers had a great day and there were a lot of visitors. You helped

to make that possible. Last, but certainly not least, we would like to thank our farmers. These folks do not work a regular 9 to 5 job. There is always watering, weeding, the tending of crops, and animals to be fed. They really have a 24/7 job. The extra work they put into this event was truly a labor of love. Our group is planing next years event, and hope to have a few surprises for attendees. So, mark your calender — the third weekend in July, on a Sunday. Your destination — Barnstead Open Farm Day 2013. We’ll see you all then. Don Walker, Co-Founder Barnstead Farmers & Gardeners Network

LETTERS Electing Romney seems like putting fox in charge of hen house To the editor, One candidate for president graduated, with student aid, high in his class from law school. He then did not accept a high paying job at a law firm, but decided to work as a community organizer in the streets of south Chicago. He has a modest amount of money, mainly as a result of having published two books. His wife gave up a high paying job as a lawyer to support his candidacy for president. His financial records are open to the public. The other also graduated high in his class at law school. He then went into the financial business world. His family has lots of money and has supported him in all he has done. His associates during his career have all been wealthy business and financial men. This candidate has paid “not one penny more than he had to” in low taxes. He has used off shore accounts for business and personal tax shel-

ters. He refuses to show his financial records for recent years. We have seen the results of the high flying, uncontrolled financial world in the banking collapse several years ago. We are hearing about the continuing illegal practices of international banks in rigging interest rates in their favor. The pervasive attitude or the financial industry is shown in a recent survey which showed 35-percent of people working in it would cheat if they thought they would not get caught. Large corporations and extremely wealthy individuals are now controlling our country. Does electing Romney seem like putting the fox in charge of the hen house? We need someone who relates to the middle class and poor. President Obama has the creds for the job. Kent Warner Center Harbor

Taxes will be going up for all & you can thank GOP for that To the editor, I just read another rant from the cement head, bashing the Affordable Care Act. As usual, cement head just does not get it. He complains about the Democrats weakening the fabric and unity of America; what does he think he and his Washington cement heads,lead by the biggest cement head, John Boehner, are doing, just being against everything and FOR NOTHING? As for the so called 22 new taxes, I challenge him to name them, without looking them up. No, he is clueless, he has NO idea. Also part of the problem is the continued refusal by the Republican Party to compromise on anything. As for blaming Bush, I guess you forgot, he fought two wars, DID NOT PAY FOR THEM, Cut taxes, DID NOT

PAY FOR IT, Got hoodwinked by Ted” the Chappaquiddick Kid” Kennedy it to signing one the worst bills, the “Part D Medicare plan. And perhaps you forgot, presided over the worst economic disaster since the Great Depression. And finally, George, proposed his friends, AKA the Wall Street Gangs, bailout prior to leaving office. He made sure his friends were taken care of. At least the auto bail out saved tens of thousands of “good jobs at good wages”, including many in the Lakes Region. Finally, let me say this. Willard Romney will NOT BE PRESIDENT. The affordable care act will NOT BE REPEALED, and because of the Republicans in Washington, taxes will be going up for all. Bill Knightly Gilford

Sen. Forrester is personable & approachable; let’s re-elect her To the editor, Why do I support Senator Forrester for re-election? I strongly believe Jeanie Forrester through her actions has proven to be knowledgeable, honest and hard working over the past two years, for her constituents and New Hampshire. Even if I have not agreed with her on how she has voted on some legislation, Jeanie has taken the time to answer my e-mails or has been open to personal discussions on the legislation if you take the time to contact her. Sometimes, there are many other factors involved that we as constituents are unaware of either added or subtracted from the bills. We, too, have a responsibility to inquiry to see the whole picture. Sena-

tor Forrester has had good sound reasons for why she has voted as she has on legislation. I believe whole-heartedly that we all grow and come to a better understanding of issues with this type of openness and dialogue. I find Jeanie Forrester open and willing to discuss her position on all legislation and issues. If you want a person that is personal and approachable, relating well to people, has a sincere interest in her constituents and their issues and is responsible for a better New Hampshire for everyone, then you need to re-elect Senator Jeanie Forrester for State Senator in District 2. Lucinda A. Ossola New Hampton

Republican lawmakers elected in 2010 kept out promises To the editor, Those, like me, who ran for office two years ago made promises. Listed below is a partial compilation of new laws the 2011-2012 New Hampshire House of Representatives passed keeping those promises in the area of our fiscal health. The heading is: living within our means. — Passed a budget 11-percent smaller than the prior budget, thereby reducing total spending by over $1.2-billion and general fund spending by $536-million, or 18-percent. (HBs 1 & 2) This was the first time in N.H. history a budget was reduced more than .1-percent and by passing it we eliminating an $800-million deficit left by the Democrats. — Passed a state budget that includes no new or increased taxes or fees. (HBs 1 & 2) — Reversed past two terms of Democratic budgetary/accounting

gimmicks by passing a budget that does not bond any operating costs or sell assets from one state agency to another to claim fictitious revenue, and while using responsible revenue estimates. (HBs 1 & 2) — The state returned $1-million in ObamaCare funds to the federal government with instructions to use the money for debt reduction. (HB 601) — Passed an education funding formula that maintains existing levels of aid to communities and allows additional targeted aid to needy cities and towns. (HB 337) — Requires for future state budgets, that state agencies submit a range of budgets including one that actually reduces spending along with any request to expand state government. (SB 146) Promises made, promises kept. Rep. Greg Hill Northfield.

We fretted over a cell tower & now we have this clear-cut to look at? To the editor, To the town of Alton regarding the town’s most important economic asset, its natural beauty: There was a hue and cry when a proposed cell phone tower would dominate the landscape and be a detriment to our skyline. The biggest cell phone tower in the world would not

look as bad as the clear cut of timber above 28-A in Alton Bay. What a scar on our natural beauty, to say nothing of the danger of mud slides and erosion. Is it possible to prevent this from happening in the future? Marcia McHarg Alton Bay

Fire Engineers trumpet judge’s pronouncement that Gilford should not rely on neighbors for protection By Gail OBer

GILFORD — Fire Engineers said yesterday that if voters approve the purchase of a pumper fire truck at the Sept. 11 special town meeting, it will be in service within eight months. The board also expressed its thanks to Belknap County Superior Court Judge Kenneth McHugh, who they said recognized Gilford’s duty to provide adequate emergency coverage to their own community and not to depend on mutual aid from neighboring communities. “The most impartial person to date has weighed in on Engine 4,” said Chair Bill Akerley of the justice who agreed Gilford was facing an emergency and granted permission to hold a special meeting. The purchase of a new pumper to replace a 25-year old now out-of-service one has been the subject of bitter and sometimes very personal dissension in Gilford. Calling the dissention “somewhat embarrassing”, Akerley said he felt people were probably tired of reading the letters to the editor about the truck. He also said that the two letters written by Gilford firefighters and members of the Gilford Firefighter’s Association were written without his knowledge or permission. Akerley also said that if there were any attempts on the part of those who support the truck to intimidate those who didn’t, he didn’t know about it and wouldn’t condone it if he did. Akerley made his statements yesterday in a media conference called by the Fire Engineers to address the timeline of the upcoming deliberative session,

vote and possible delivery of a new pumper. The Deliberative Session for the proposed 10-year lease/purchase of the $441,820 E-One Pumper is August 7 at 7 p.m. in the Gilford High School Auditorium. Ballot voting is one September 11 at the Gilford Middle School. It is state primary day and voters will be given a separate ballot for the fire truck vote. If the vote fails, Akerley said the town would have no choice but to repair the existing Engine 4 and put it back in service. He said the estimated repairs, without the electrical issues, is about $75,000 and he had yet to find a fire truck repair service company that will give him an estimate on the electrical repairs. He said Shawn Mulcahey of Lakes Region Fire Apparatus described the electrical repairs as a “nightmare.” Akerley said there is no money in the 2012 fire department maintenance line to repair the truck so it would have to wait until 2013 at the earliest. He also said repairing the truck’s water pump could be problematic as the housing may be cracked. He said if the voters approve the purchase, Engine 2 would rotate back as a second response attack truck with an expected remaining life span of 10 to15 years. He said the 10-year lease is perfect because the capital improvement plan has no intention of buying a another fire truck for at least 10 years. Right now, when Engine 2 is out of service for maintenance or repairs, Gilford borrows an attack truck from Laconia or Tilton-Northfield.

LYDIA’S from page one the McGuires will remain on Busy Corner, furthering a plan to help “downtrodden” residents of the city, those who are caught in a cycle of poverty, often accelerated by substance abuse, and looking for a more meaningful life. Lydia’s Consignment Center, which opened about two weeks ago, is the first step in a plan that is modeled after successful faith-based institutions found in other parts of the country and world. The store offers a chance for people to volunteer and earn good recommendations for their job search. Eventually, the McGuires hope, the store will generate enough revenue to help support a transitional home for people leaving the correctional system. “In Laconia, what we’re looking at is a high recidivism rate,” said Carolyn. “Most of these people, because they have a crime on their record, can’t get a job.” With a lack of positive choices, ex-convicts all too often fall in with the same group of peers and make the same choices, whch results in another sentence in county jail or state prison. “They’re stuck, what do we do?” For now, the consignment shop is operating as a for profit business. As the plan proceeds, they will seek to re-organize as a not-for-profit organization. In addition to providing shelter and basic household items, the McGuires intend to provide Evangelical Christian teachings. They’re both enrolled in

Online Bible College, as is Brandy Campbell, who plans to assist the McGuires with their mission. The McGuires think their own struggles, growing up in Pennsylvania, give them a unique opportunity to help others turn their lives around. Chris grew up in an impoverished Philadelphia family. He soon turned to a life of drug use and crime. “I was a heroin addict, crack head and alcoholic,” he said. “God has changed my life so many ways, I can’t count the ways. That’s why, when people ask questions, I can answer them.” “We both had fallen into drug abuse, lived with people who were abusive, both spent time in prison,” said Carolyn, who was born to a dysfunctional family in Lancaster County. “Then Jesus Christ happened.” She said she agreed to a six-week commitment at a transitional home — the kind she wants to bring to Laconia. She stayed there for 16 years. “My husband and I know for a fact that these things work and are beneficial,” she said. “We’ve been through this, we’ve been there, we’ve come out on the other side.” Lydia’s Consignment Center is currently looking for items to sell in the store, such as crafts made by local people. They’re also accepting donations of literature, clothing and general household items excepting furniture. Lydia’s can be reached at 3932248. The store is open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and is located at the intersection of Union Avenue and Church Street.

Dunleavy will put forward Wyatt Park plan on Aug. 20 BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Kevin Dunleavy, director of Parks and Recreation, told some 20 residents of the Wyatt Park neighborhood gathered at the Community Center last night that he will present a plan for the renovation and reconfiguration of the park to the Parks and Recreation Commission when it meets on August 20. The news fell on the heels of the decision by the City Council the night before to earmark $50,000 for improvements to Wyatt Park, which drew a round of applause when it was announced by assistant director Amy Lovisek. Councilor Brenda Baer (Ward 4) persuaded the council to designate funds appropriated in 2010 and 2011 for playground equipment, which have not been spent, for immediate improvements. “It’s in the bank,” Lovisek said. “There are things we can do now.” Meanwhile, Dunleavy recalled that earlier this year four conceptual designs for the park were prepared, all of which would require an investment of more than $50,000. He said that once the Parks and Recreation approves a plan, the cost of the project will be estimated and the amount included in the department’s request to the Capital Improvement Program (CIP) Committee, which ranks capital investments to be included in the municipal budget. Dunleavy anticipates the council will appropriate sufficient funds to undertake the project next year. The four concepts all included common elements — a walking path, skating rink, picnic areas, expanded playground and landscaped gardens — arranged differently. But, each placed the basketball court in a different part of the park. One kept it in the southwest corner of the park, another moved it to the northeast corner, another cut it in half and

placed alongside Champlin Street. A plan that eliminated the basketball court altogether was roundly rejected. “We need to plan what this park needs now,” said Lovisek. “Our city manager is in the know and he wants to push this.” Dunleavy said that the $50,000 would provide for some immediate needs like picnic tables, park benches, trash bins, plantings and signage that could be moved to accommodate the final layout of the park. The meeting also marked a step forward for the Wyatt Park-South End Community Revitalization Project, supported by a $10,000 grant from the Foundation for Healthy Communities. “This is not just about the park,” Lovisek said. “It’s about creating a safe and healthy neighborhood.” Beth Gustovson-Wheeler of the Foundation for Healthy Communities said that the grant stemmed from the HEAL, or “Healthy Eating, Active Living,” program, intended to encourage people to consume healthy foods and take physical exercise. Acknowledging that there are impediments to doing both, she said the program was designed to overcome them by providing access to both. The renovation of the park, Gustovson-Wheeler said, represented a key component of the program, along with proposals to improve pedestrian safety and mobility throughout the neighborhood. She explained that the first step would be to inventory and map the “assets” of the neighborhood, particularly those like the park, supermarket, heallth food store and library within walking distance for many residents. That exercise will begin with a forum to be scheduled after the opening the school. Afterwards strategies to promote better diets and more exercise will be developed.

GILFORD from page one the code enforcement officer support Drew getting his exotic license back, Dunn does not. Reading from a written statement at the last selectmen’s meeting, he said he was present at the three days of Liquor Commission hearings and felt the things he learned from that meeting prevented him from supporting Drew’s application. The selectmen will again take up the subject tonight, when they meet at Town Hall at 7 p.m. On July 16, Dunn sent Drew a letter seeking the answer to 12 separate questions, including how he will supervise dancers so that they are not injured and how he will prevent them from selling drugs to their clients. The Liquor Commission determined Drew was not responsible for any drug sales that happened in the club under the former management team, which was leasing the facility from him but using his liquor license to operate. Dunn also wanted to know if Drew had licenses to use copyrighted music; how he would make sure his employees were not interfere with state or local law enforcement officers; and asked that Drew submit a sample menu for selectmen to review and a description of the food operations he plans to use. He asked for a plan for allowing firearms in the

club and to provide the town with any and all previous violation notices. Dunn also told Drew that his response to his 12 questions was voluntary but that he “anticipate(s) that any refusal on (Drew’s) part to demonstrate a genuine sense of cooperation in dealing with these matters will likely result in the denial of your license.” In his reply to selectmen, Drew said he has a policy that guns, when he knows they are present, can be kept in a secure location. “With regard to his other drug related innuendos, may I remind you that I or my ex-wife have been a holder of a state-issued license to operate for more than 31 years and have not had any issues with the aforementioned topics,” Drew wrote. He also told selectmen that he found Dunn’s inability to deal with these issues in an unbiased and neutral manner “extremely unfortunate.” He said Dunn’s statements at the last selectman’s meeting were “incorrect” and that predicating his chances of getting his exotic dancing license on his responses to Dunn’s inquiries is an “unwarranted threat.”

ACID from page one area including Fair Street from Court Street to the bridge, Winnisquam Avenue and Charles Street. He also ordered people with cars parked along those streets to remove them. He said either overheating or the reaction between the acid and the tank’s material could have been the likely cause of the leak. He said the bottom of the drum was blown off and the liquid vaporized. Erickson said the vapor dissipated by early afternoon and the area was reopened by 2:15 p.m. The department used fans placed inside the building to hasten the dissipation. He said his greatest fear was that flammable materials in the building could combine with the acid vapors and catch fire. He said the DES was called because many of the materials used in metal fabrication could potentially leach in the Winnipesaukee River. ABC Fabri-

cations, makes circuit boards. One woman who lives on Fair Street said she was asked to leave her house at about 7:20 a.m. “I was pretty much ready to go to work but my two children had to go to work without taking showers,” she said. She said the fire department was very polite and simply asked them to leave their house and take their cars off the street. Erickson said the primary goal was to keep everybody safe and that’s why he evacuated the area. About seven hours into the acid spill, the skies opened and Police Sgt. Gary Hubbard said the heavy rain coupled with the traffic backed up on Court Street likely caused two very minor car accidents. He also said a boy on a bicycle was struck by a car in the parking lot at Walgreen’s. He said the boy was wearing his helmet and had a scrape on his arm.

BATMAN from page 2 black T-shirt and jeans, thanked the staff, shook hands and agreed to have his photo taken with employees, Bowman-Hayes said. “He just said he wanted to come to thank all of us because he has been thinking about this. He knows the whole world has been thinking about this,” she said. “He took it upon himself to come and thank us.” An online campaign had urged Bale to visit survivors of the shooting. Bale also stopped by a growing memorial near the theater and walked among the 12 crosses erected for each of the slain victims. Many people there didn’t realize who he was or chose to leave him alone. A Warner Bros. spokeswoman told The Denver Post that Bale was representing himself, not the movie studio.

Bale, who stars as Batman in “The Dark Knight Rises,” previously issued a written statement saying: “Words cannot express the horror that I feel. I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones, but my heart goes out to them.” President Barack Obama and members of the Denver Broncos also have made hospital visits to some of the survivors. Bowman-Hayes and her staff cared for patients at both Swedish Medical Center and The Medical Center of Aurora after the shootings, whether it was in the operating room or intensive care unit, or by washing medical instruments. She said the staff appreciated Bale’s visit. “He did this out of his heart, and you could really tell. It was so sincere,” she said. “It was just, ‘thank you.’”

BRAIN from page 2 at home that police say he used to kill 12 people and wound 58 more at a movie theater Friday in nearby Aurora. Police say he also booby-trapped his apartment with the intent to kill police officers. Holmes’ arraignment hearing is on Monday. Attention continued to focus on victims of the attack and their grieving families, many of whom turned on Tuesday to the grim task of preparing for funerals. Batman star Christian Bale visited survivors of the shooting and stopped by a makeshift memorial to victims near the movie theater where they were shot. Authorities say Holmes began shopping for firearms while studying neuroscience. He joined the program in June 2011 after receiving a National Institutes of Health grant to cover his tuition and provide a $26,000 annual living allowance.

studied. But an online syllabus listed him as making a presentation in May during a class called “Biological Basis of Psychiatric and Neurological Disorders.” In early June, Holmes took a standard oral exam that ends a graduate student’s first year. The school will not say whether he passed, but Holmes filed paperwork to withdraw from the program just days later. He never provided a written explanation for his departure. “He had, as is now common knowledge, excellent academic credentials,” said Barry Shur, dean of the university’s graduate program. Shur said the graduate program is “like a family” in which faculty carefully monitor students’ progress. “It would be a logical step to assume there were people in that program who worked closely with him and would have the expertise to assess his behavior,” said Mary Ellen O’Toole, a former FBI profiler and

CONCORD — Of the 18 Republican members of the New Hampshire House of Representatives elected in Belknap County in 2010, only four — Bob Kingsbury of Laconia, Guy Comtois of Barnstead, Bob Greemore and Colette Worsman of Meredith — have been endorsed by the Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire (RLCNH) in their bid for re-election. The RCLNH yesterday released its scorecard, rating lawmakers according to “their faithfulness to conservative values.” Carolyn McKinney, who chairs the RLCNH, said yesterday that the organization “intends to drive the agenda for the Republican Party in the coming years” and will use its scorecard in choosing candidates to endorse and support. The RLCNH rated New Hampshire’s 24 senators and 400 representatives by their roll call votes on 223 bills during the last two-year session of the Legislature. Only those scoring 85-percent or better earned the endorsement of RLCNH.

Senator Jim Forsythe (R-Strafford), whose district included Laconia and six towns in Belknap County, scored the highest among the senators with 90-percent, well ahead of Senators Ray White (R-Bedford) with 81-percent and Andy Sanborn (R-Henniker) with 80-percent. Forsythe has announced his retirement from the Senate. Among the Belknap County delegation, Comtois topped the list with a score of 91-percent, followed by Robert Malone of Alton, who is not seeking reelection, at 89-percent, Worsman at 88-percent, Greemore at 88-percent and Kingsbury at 86-percent. “We’ve only endorsed the best of the best,” McKinney said. McKinney said that the RLCNH has also “recommended” candidates whose scores fell shy of 85-percent threshold, but who distinguished themselves on particular issues. No incumbent representative from Belknap County was recommended for re-election. —Michael Kitch

from preceding page the author of the book “Dangerous Instincts: How Gut Feelings Betray Us.” “But being able to recognize concerning, troubling behavior does not mean you can prevent a mass homicide,” O’Toole said. “There are many people at a university level who act quirky and strange and don’t go out and commit mass murder.” Academics studying the human brain may not have the same ability to size up threats as someone who makes his living spending time with people firing guns, O’Toole said. Glenn Rotkovich, owner of a private Colorado gun range outside Denver, quickly concluded there was something wrong with Holmes. Holmes applied to join the range in late June. But Rotkovich said that after calling Holmes back and hearing a “bizarre” voice mail message — spoken in a strange, low-pitched voice with heavy breathing — he concluded he didn’t want Holmes as a member.

“I flagged him to people and said, if he shows up, I don’t trust him,” Rotkovich said. Holmes apparently never went to the range. The university’s silence on the year Holmes spent there contributed to the mystery surrounding his motivations. Administrators refuse to say whether faculty or students saw signs of dangerous behavior in Holmes. Campus police said they had no information on Holmes before the attack. Holmes remained in solitary confinement Tuesday in Arapahoe County jail, a day after appearing bleary-eyed and disoriented in his initial court appearance. He could face the death penalty if convicted. Working to build their case, a team of lawyers from the district attorney’s office spent about 90 minutes inside the movie multiplex where the shooting occurred. Crews were starting to encircle the building with a chain link fence while people continued to flock to a memorial nearby for the victims.

POT SHOPS from page 2 the city ordered closure of the shops — a process that failed amid lawsuits and conflicting rulings by appellate courts. This time around the city has a stronger case if faced with lawsuits by pot shop owners, city officials said. A recent appellate court ruling seems to support the new ordinance that refers to a marijuana collective as three or fewer people. The ban also allows hospices and home health agencies to provide medical pot. “A judge could file an injunction but we think that is unlikely,” said Jane Usher, a special assistant city attorney. The ban comes during a confusing time for Californians — despite voter approval in 1996 for medicinal use of marijuana with a doctor’s recommendation. The state Supreme Court has decided to clarify marijuana’s hazy legal status by addressing whether local governments can ban medical marijuana clinics. But a hearing has yet to be set by the high court. Meanwhile, U.S. authorities have cracked down on pot clinics around the state, saying such operations remain illegal under federal law. Los Angeles passed an ordinance two years ago that was supposed to shutter hundreds of pot dispensaries while capping the number in operation at 70. But a set of legal challenges against the city by collectives and last month’s expiration of the ordinance thanks to a sundowner clause led to another surge of pot shops. City officials said 762 collectives have registered with the city and as many as 200 more could exist. “We need to start with a clean slate,” Councilman Mitchell Englander said before the vote. “Los Angeles has experimented with marijuana and has failed.” However, the ban could be temporary for some dispensaries. A motion made by Councilman Paul Koretz called for city staff to draft an ordinance that would allow for about 180 pot shops to be reopened that were in business before a moratorium was enacted several years ago. That motion isn’t expected to be considered for several months. After the vote Tuesday, some medical marijuana advocates shouted expletives, while others questioned where they could get the drug in the future. “You don’t care about people!” yelled one person. NO CHILD from page 3 school districts. Local educators balked at the 100 percent proficiency standard and warned of its consequences as early as 2004. “There’s no other place in the entire country where an industry is (required) to make a 100-percentperfect product,” said then-SAU 21 Superintendent James Gaylord in December 2004. NCLB’s insistence that special-education students be measured by the same yardstick as other students is “the most ridiculous thing,” he added.

More charges expected against Kwiatkowski over hepatitis outbreak CONCORD(AP) — A federal prosecutor said Tuesday he expects to bring more charges against a traveling medical technician accused of infecting 30 patients with hepatitis C in New Hampshire, and health officials said they are casting a wider net as they look for more victims. In his first court appearance on two drug charges, David Kwiatkowski briefly answered a judge’s questions, agreeing that there is enough evidence to keep him incarcerated while the case goes to a grand jury. Afterward, U.S. Attorney John Kacavas said more charges are likely, possibly one for each infected patient. Kwiatkowski, who was charged last week with fraudulently obtaining drugs and tampering with a consumer product, is accused of stealing anesthetic drugs from the cardiac catheterization lab at Exeter Hospital where he worked, injecting himself and contaminating syringes that were later used on patients. Thirty have been diagnosed with the same strain of hepatitis C that Kwiatkowski carries, and more cases are possible as the state expands it testing. Previously, only patients who had been treated in the cardiac lab were asked to get tested, but testing is now recommended for anyone who had surgery at Exeter Hospital or was admitted to its intensive care unit from April 1, 2011, to May 25, 2012, the timeframe of Kwiatkowski’s employment. According to the hospital, Kwiatkowski occasionally moved patients to operating rooms or the ICU, but he wasn’t involved with procedures or patient care. “As health care providers, our focus is first and

foremost on our patients’ care and safety,” said Nancy Baese, president of the hospital’s medical staff. “We would rather that thousands of our patients be tested by the state even if they all turn up negative than to miss one patient who might have been infected by this alleged criminal.” The new recommendation covers about 6,000 people, some of whom might have been covered in the previous testing targeting just under 1,300 people, said state public health director Dr. Jose Montero. The testing recommendation doesn’t include patients of the hospital’s ambulatory surgical center. 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 initially said he had worked in at least six states since 2007; Kacavas increased that number to eight on Tuesday. Although authorities haven’t publicly identified the other states, health officials in Michigan, Maryland, Kansas and New York have confirmed his employment. 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 time sheets at one hospital, accused of stealing an anesthetic drug 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.”

APPLE from page 2 ever in the case of the iPad. Apple introduced a new iPad in March, but kept the older model in stores while cutting its price. The average selling prices of Macs also fell. Net income in Apple’s fiscal third quarter was $8.8 billion, or $9.32 per share. That was up 21 percent from $7.3 billion, or $7.79 per share, a year ago. Analysts polled by FactSet were expecting earnings of $10.37 per share. Revenue at the Cupertino, Calif., company was $35 billion, up 23 percent. Analysts were expecting $37.5 billion. Apple shares fell $29.82, or 5 percent, to $571.10 in after-hours trading, after the release of the results. Apple forecast earnings of $7.65 per share for the

current quarter, well below the average analyst forecast at $10.26. Normally, Apple’s forecasts are ignored, because the company routinely exceeds them. But for the just-ended quarter, Apple’s cautious forecasts were more accurate than those of analysts. Apple’s forecast points to year-over-year profit growth of just 9 percent. For revenue, Apple forecast $34 billion, while analysts have been expecting $38.1 billion. Apple last missed expectations when it reported results for the quarter that ended in September last year. That was due to the iPhone 4S’s launch being pushed from that quarter to the following one. Apple’s chief financial officer, Peter Oppenheimer, said the new version of its operating system for Macs, Mountain Lion, will go on sale Wednesday.

Onel L. Deflice, Jr., 80 TILTON — Onel L. Deflice, Jr., 80, of 1007 Laconia Road, died at his home on Sunday, July 22, 2012. Onel, or “Junior” as he preferred, was born March 7, 1932 in Lexington, Mass., the son of the late Onel and Julia (Angelo) Deflice. He resided in Lexington until moving to Tilton, N.H. where he lived for fifty years. He was a heavy equipment operator for sixty-two years, forty of which was spent as the owner O.L.D. Excavating. He was later employed by Weaver Brothers Construction before retiring in 2011 at the age of 79. He was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed his life on Lake Winnisquam. Onel spent countless hours boating, hunting and ice fishing throughout New England, and often went deep sea fishing on the Atlantic. He was a gun collector, a big fan of NASCAR (especially Dale Earnhardt, Sr.) and was a proud, charter and lifetime member of the Laconia Elks Lodge. Later in life, he enjoyed the Boston sports teams, especially the Red Sox and Patriots. But most of all, Onel loved spending time with his best friend and wife, Pat Deflice. They enjoyed visits from his beloved children near and far and could often be found socializing with his many friends from throughout the Lakes Region.

Survivors include his wife, Patricia Nealon Deflice of Tilton; four sons, Louis Deflice of Silverdale, WA, Onel Deflice of San Diego, CA, Richard Melvin of Weare, NH and Thomas Melvin of Santa Cruz, CA; four daughters, Debra Cartright of Hingham, NH, Darlene Butler of Acton, MA, Dawn Egan of Laconia NH, and Nancy LaBranche of Sanbornton, NH; a sister, Julie Miller, of Lexington, MA; several grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.

Gilford Rotary Club gives scholarships to seniors GILFORD — The 24th annual Cheryl Lynn Walsh Memorial Scholarship was handed out during Gilford High School’s Senior Awards Night. 2012 recipients were Rachel Sanborn and Shannon McQueen. This scholarship was originally started at the urging of President Richard Ayers and other members of Gilford Rotary in 1988 and was implemented a year later. The first recipient was Corey Ellis in 1989. Originally thought of as an “initially endowed” and eventually “self-sustaining” program, the Gilford Rotary initially funded the scholarship with seed money. The proceeds/ earnings of the investments plus contributions by members of the Foundation, board and Selection Committee as well as Gilford Rotary have resulted in $500 to $2,500 grants to the recipients over the years since it was established. Since the very beginning of this scholarship, a silver commemorative bowl, a citation, and grant have been given to recipients at Senior Awards Night in June. To select the recipients every year it has been a tradition for a selection committee of board members, friends, and past recipients conduct interviews to determine who should be selected for the award. This task is not easy, as the scholarship has traditionally attracted applications from the

brightest and most talented leaders and scholar/ athletes of the senior class. Several fund-raising activities have provided additional resources to the Rotary Club over the years. Initially there had been a Rotary District Ski Race, and more recently the long-standing Annual Old Home Day Rotary Pancake Breakfast. The goal of the Gilford Rotary Club over the years has been to raise and conserve a substantial enough principal to give a meaningful and truly helpful grant to each year’s recipient(s). If you wish to make a donation to the Gilford Rotary Club Cheryl Lynn Walsh Memorial Scholarship, your tax-deductible contributions may be sent to: Treasurer, Cheryl Lynn Walsh Memorial Scholarship Foundation, c/o Gilford Rotary Club, Post Office Box 7091, Gilford, New Hampshire 03247-7091. To become involved in the Gilford Rotary Club, an organization of business and professional men and women who have accepted the ideal of service as a basis for attaining fulfillment in their business, personal, and professional lives, and by serving their community, their meeting are Fridays at 7:00AM at Patrick’s Pub at the intersection of Route 11 and Route 11B in Gilford.

Dessert theater at Methodist church in Gilford August 3-4 GILFORD — The Wesley Players of the First United Methodist Church in Gilford will present a dessert theater presentation in the church fellowship hall on Friday and Saturday night August 3-4 at 7:30pm. Murder Takes a Holiday, by Tim Kelly, is a murder mystery who-done-it set in a 1980’s New Hampshire ski lodge where murder and mayhem trap a number of characters with a broken ski lift, no phone service and power outages. Who’s to be trusted? Who’s to be feared? Director J Alward has set the stage with plenty of red herrings to mystify the audience and carry them through

the typical Tim Kelly tongue in cheek style where they’ll ponder the questions and enjoy the ride. Dessert and refreshments will be offered at intermission between the two acts. The cast includes Sharon and Dick Walden, Scott and Braeden Alward, Raelynn Cottrell, Lynn Dadian, David Bownes, Peter Ayer, Allie Dennis and Melissa Bigler. Proceeds from the production will be used to support the missions and programs of the church. All tickets are $7 and will be available at Greenlaw’s Music in downtown Laconia, at the door or by calling 528-6485.

Nantucket landscape basket weaving class Saturday in Meredith MEREDITH — The League of NH Craftsmen Meredith Retail Gallery will host a Nantucket Landscape basket weaving class with Liz Lapham on Saturday, July 28, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. In this hands-on class students will learn to create a basket in the traditional Nantucket style made on a mold with an oak base, but with the non-traditional addition of a woven tapestry of waxed linen, incorporating sea grass and birch bark in the body and rims. Students will learn the techniques to increase and decrease with the waxed linen, creating their own landscapes of color and design. Lapham is a locally juried member of the League of NH Craftsmen in Meredith. A former teacher, she has

been weaving baskets for two decades. A guest lecturer for many organizations, she has taught her love of the history and the weaving of baskets in local area schools and most recently at the Northeast Basketmakers Guild Gathering 2009. Her work was selected to be exhibited at the Sharon Arts Center, League of NH Craftsmen’s Juried Exhibition and the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen’s 24th Biennial Members’ Juried Exhibition. Liz won 3 Blue Ribbons and Best in Show for her baskets at the 2009 Sandwich Fair. Tuition is $65 per student with an additional $35 materials fee to be paid to the instructor at the time of the class. As space is limited, pre-registration is required.

Get Fuzzy TUNDRA

By Holiday Mathis Once you make relaxation a priority, you’ll actually have fun. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll be engaged in a job that you think just about anyone on earth could do, but the truth is that no one can -- at least not in the way you can do it. Sometimes it just has to be you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your questions will have more of an impact on the day than your answers will. Asking an excellent question can blow a locked door right off its hinges. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your interest in the problems of ordinary people is quite extraordinary. You’ll influence others with your thought, but only because you follow it up with such interesting actions. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). No matter how talented you already are, there is always more waiting to burst forth. And if you feel limited, there is someone inside you who can blow through those limits. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A personal development effort may seem to have led you right back to where you started, except for the impossibility of that outcome. Everything you experience changes you in some way. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (JULY 25). You know what you want and you’ll do what it takes to get it this year. Your partner in fun and crime will be by your side every minute in August -- so much so that you may crave solo time in September. October focuses on getting finances in line so you’re ready to take an important step in January. Cancer and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 40, 23, 2 and 35.

by Chad Carpenter


ARIES (March 21-April 19). It may seem to you that it will be difficult for you to predict where you’ll be next month, only because your needs are so rapidly changing, declining and developing anew. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The one you’re attracted to may not fit sensibly into your life. It’s because infatuation doesn’t come from a wise and experienced place in your psyche. It is infantile in its impulsive whimsy. Cupid is a child. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re usually excellent at staying in touch with people, but right now socializing isn’t the number one priority. You may have to convince someone that out of sight isn’t out of mind. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Don’t worry about seeming inconsistent. Flow with what you feel. Like your ruling luminary, the Moon, you appear in different forms to your loved ones, depending on where you are in the cycles of time. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Get an unpleasant task out of the way. You can treat it like ripping off a Band-Aid. Faster is better -- there will be a sting; then it’s over and you can get on with what promises to be a stellar day. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Everyone learns differently. What will work for you will be different from what works for another. So just be honest and nonjudgmental with yourself about what works and what doesn’t. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The circumstances around you may have you very wound up indeed. Relax. It’s the best thing you can do for yourself.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Wednesday, July 25, the 207th day of 2012. There are 159 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 25, 1972, the notorious Tuskegee syphilis experiment came to light as The Associated Press reported that for the previous four decades, the U.S. Public Health Service, in conjunction with the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama, had been allowing poor, rural black male patients with syphilis to go without treatment, even allowing them to die, as a way of studying the disease. On this date: In 1866, Ulysses S. Grant was named General of the Army of the United States, the first officer to hold the rank. In 1909, French aviator Louis Bleriot became the first person to fly an airplane across the English Channel, traveling from Calais to Dover in 37 minutes. In 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt froze Japanese assets in the United States in retaliation for Japan’s occupation of southern Indochina. In 1946, the United States detonated an atomic bomb near Bikini Atoll in the Pacific in the first underwater test of the device. In 1952, Puerto Rico became a self-governing commonwealth of the United States. In 1956, the Italian liner Andrea Doria collided with the Swedish passenger ship Stockholm off the New England coast late at night and began sinking; at least 51 people were killed. In 1960, a Woolworth’s store in Greensboro, N.C., that had been the scene of a sit-in protest against its whites-only lunch counter dropped its segregation policy. In 1962, the Bell System inaugurated Skyphone, an air-to-ground radiotelephone service, as American Airlines stewardess Hope Patterson placed a call to Associated Press writer Francis Stilley in New York while flying over Lakehurst, N.J. In 1984, Soviet cosmonaut Svetlana Savitskaya became the first woman to walk in space as she carried out more than three hours of experiments outside the orbiting space station Salyut 7. In 2000, a New York-bound Air France Concorde crashed outside Paris shortly after takeoff, killing all 109 people on board and four people on the ground; it was the first-ever crash of the supersonic jet. One year ago: In a prime-time address to the nation, President Barack Obama made a last-ditch call for compromise on raising the government’s borrowing ability before an Aug. 2 deadline; in a rebuttal, House Speaker John Boehner said negotiations with the White House had been futile. Today’s Birthdays: Actress Barbara Harris is 77. Rock musician Jim McCarty (The Yardbirds) is 69. Rock musician Verdine White (Earth, Wind & Fire) is 61. Singer-musician Jem Finer (The Pogues) is 57. Model-actress Iman is 57. Cartoonist Ray Billingsley (“Curtis”) is 55. Rock musician Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth) is 54. Actress-singer Bobbie Eakes is 51. Actress Katherine Kelly Lang is 51. Actress Illeana Douglas is 47. Country singer Marty Brown is 47. Actor Matt LeBlanc is 45. Actress Wendy Raquel Robinson is 45. Actor D.B. Woodside is 43. Actress Miriam Shor is 41. Actor James Lafferty is 27. Actress Shantel VanSanten is 27. Actor Michael Welch is 25. Classical singer Faryl Smith is 17.

Page 20 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, July 25, 2012


Dear Annie: I am an attractive 30-something female who began experiencing thinning hair in my late 20s due to a thyroid disorder. Many women have the confidence to accept their hair loss and do nothing to hide it. I admire that. However, for me, it contributes to embarrassment, low self-esteem and a lack of confidence. When I started wearing wigs several years ago, I could only afford synthetics, but found some affordable, realistic ones. The problem? There have been a handful of times when people -- namely co-workers and guests at social gatherings -- have come right out and asked me, in the company of others no less, whether I wear a wig. Their tactlessness never fails to stun me, and the only response I can muster is, “Why do you ask?” The most common response is, “It always looks too perfect.” More appalling is when people touch or tug on my hair without my permission to “see if it’s real.” Sometimes people ask where I get my hair done, which I know is an attempt to find out whether I wear a wig. I fear that one day someone will pull it off. I don’t like to lie, so I usually change the subject or act distracted. I have perused hair loss forums on the Internet for advice and have found that many women are very open about it as a means to educate others. I’m not like that. My experience has been painful and personal. Other than my doctor, I never have admitted to anyone that I wear a wig. It’s no one’s business. Why on earth are these people so fixated on my hair? How do I respond to these intrusive, thoughtless and insensitive people without raising any fuss? -- Wigged Out in the U.S.A. Dear Wigged Out: What colossal nerve. Even if your wig is more obvious than you think, it does not excuse such terrible behavior. We know you don’t want to disclose your hair loss,

but it might be quite liberating and certainly would put an end to the anxiety you are experiencing over discovery. Until then, however, feel free to respond to these idiots with wide eyes and a shocked expression, saying, “I’m sure you didn’t intend to be so rude.” Then walk away. Dear Annie: My son is getting married, and my husband and I are paying for the rehearsal dinner. My mother is adamant that all out-of-town guests be invited. My son and his fiancee prefer to keep the guest list to the wedding party, parents and grandparents. Otherwise it risks becoming too large. And if we include out-of-towners from our side, we also have to include those from the bride’s side. Is it normal protocol to invite out-of-town guests to the rehearsal dinner? Could we invite only some of them? -- Rehearsal Blues Dear Blues: If there are large numbers of out-of-town guests, you do not need to invite them to the rehearsal dinner, although you should provide some type of refreshment when they arrive, either in their hotel rooms or by way of a hospitality suite. If there are people traveling a great distance who are special to the family, you may invite them individually, but we don’t recommend including most of the groom’s side and none of the bride’s. Dear Annie: As for egregious etiquette errors, how’s this one? At the end of a wedding shower, a guest who had brought no gift stood up and said, “I am giving a special gift to the bride: She doesn’t need to send anyone here a thankyou note.” And we never received any acknowledgement for our generous present. -- Miffed Guest Dear Miffed: How charming. A smart bride would have ignored that “gift.”
