Irwin Auto Group contributes $50,000 to LHS fund drive BY ADAM DRAPCHO THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Chris Irwin, vice president and general manager of the Irwin Automotive Group, is a third generation car man and a third generation Sachem. He said it was pride in his alma mater

and a desire to contribute to a community-bettering project that motivated a decision to contribute $50,000 to the School District’s capital campaign for improvement at the High School The fund raising drive has a goal of raising $1-million in non-public funds

to be used to construct a stateof-the-art athletic facility and provide state-of-the-art science labs. “For me, it’s really all about the city of Laconia,” Irwin said of his interest in participating in the project. He saw, in plans for the expansion of academic

offerings and improvement of athletic facilities, a benefit for the community at large as well as the students who will attend the school. “The potential, I think, is fantastic. To be able to be part of that is tremendous,” he said. see IRWIN page 10

PORTSMOUTH (AP) — The state attorney general is investigating the apparent disappearance of about $100,000 in wine from a state-run liquor outlet. In December, 300 cases of wine were found in the stockroom during an audit at the New Hampshire Liquor & Wine Outlet in Portsmouth. The wine had no invoice or paperwork with it, and days later it was gone, with no indication of where it went. The enforcement division of the state Liquor Commission began an investigation a few days later. But the division took months to issue a finding, and when it finally did in mid-April, it was clear the investigation wasn’t comprehensive, commission chair Joe Mollica told WMUR. Mollica said the commission brought the case before the Rockingham County attorney’s office, which found it inconclusive. In June, state Attorney General Michael Delaney briefed the state executive council see WINE page 14

Suspect in hepatitis C outbreak was fired in Arizona for drug use CONCORD (AP) — A dozen hospitals in seven states are scrambling to identify people who might have been infected with hepatitis C by a traveling medical technician who was charged a week ago with causing an outbreak in New Hampshire. With details of David Kwiatkowski’s resume still emerging, a hospital official in Arizona said he had been fired from her facility in April 2010, after he was found unresponsive in a men’s locker room with

syringes and needles. Kwiatkowski was treated at the hospital, and tests showed he had cocaine and marijuana in his system, said Monica Bowman, chief executive officer of the Arizona Heart Hospital. Kwiatkowski, 33, is accused of stealing anesthetic drugs from Exeter Hospital in New Hampshire and contaminating syringes used on patients. His same strain of hepatitis C, a blood-borne viral infection that can cause liver disease and chronic

health issues, has been diagnosed in 30 of the patients. Testing has been recommended for about 4,700 people in New Hampshire alone, and officials are still determining who should be tested elsewhere. In addition to Arizona, hospitals and state health agencies have confirmed that Kwiatkowski also worked in Georgia, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan, New York and Pennsylvania see HEPATITIS page 12

Man says he was boy in shower with Sandusky, threatens suit

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — For months, the identity of the boy who was sexually assaulted in the locker room showers by Jerry Sandusky was one of the biggest mysteries of the Penn State scandal. Now, for the first time, a man has come forward to claim he was that boy, and is threatening to sue the university. The man’s lawyers said Thursday they have done an extensive investigation and gathered “overwhelming evidence” on details of the abuse by Sandusky, the

former assistant football coach convicted of using his position at Penn State and as head of a youth charity to molest boys over a period of 15 years. Jurors convicted Sandusky last month of offenses related to so-called Victim 2 largely on the testimony of Mike McQueary, who was a team graduate assistant and described seeing the attack. “Our client has to live the rest of his life not only dealing with the effects of Sandusky’s childhood sexual abuse, but also

with the knowledge that many powerful adults, including those at the highest levels of Penn State, put their own interests and the interests of a child predator above their legal obligations to protect him,” the lawyers said in a news release. They did not name their client, and The Associated Press generally does not identify victims of sex crimes without their consent. The university said it was taking the see SHOWER page 8

White House makes it clear there won’t be push for new gun laws

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama will not push for stricter gun laws this election year, the White House said Thursday, one day after his impassioned remarks about the need to keep assault weapons off the streets suggested he may plunge into that political

fight and challenge Congress to act. Instead, Obama’s stand on the government’s role ended up right where it was after the mass shooting in Colorado last week: Enforce existing law better. That is same view held by his Republican opponent, Mitt Romney, as both reach

Susan Estrich

Maryland I did something so unusual last week as to trigger the “fraud” section at my credit card company to freeze my account. No, I didn’t walk into a Tiffany’s somewhere and try to buy a bauble for thousands of dollars. I wasn’t trying to use my card in a foreign land. It had absolutely nothing to do with paying my bills (which I do on time) or my credit limits (more than I should ever need or spend). I flew from California to Washington, D.C., to attend the memorial service of a close friend. After landing at Dulles Airport (in Virginia), I took one of the authorized “Washington Flyer” taxis to my hotel in D.C. I took out my credit card and used it to pay the fare, about $60, and added a generous tip because we’d spent so much time in traffic, and I was cold and made him turn off the air, and then it started raining. It was just one of those miserable airport rides, but he remained courteous and good humored and even found some shortcuts. I was almost in a good mood when I got out of the cab, even though I was facing a painful weekend. And then I went into the hotel restaurant, and that was it. “I’m sorry,” the waitress announced a little too loudly. “I tried it twice, but your credit card was declined.” She showed me the two charge slips. They hadn’t said to call for approval so they could get me on the phone to make sure I was me. Just DECLINED. Twenty dollars. I tried it one more time in D.C. Maybe forty dollars. Declined again. Then I tried it again at the parking lot at the Los Angeles airport when I got home. The attendant looked at me a little suspiciously. “Declined,” he screamed from the booth. When I got home, my daughter told me that someone had called just a little while ago, while I was in the air, from the “Early Warning” department at the credit card company. She gave me the number. No answer. So I did what I suppose I could have done two days earlier — except that I was at a memorial service trying to help my friend’s daughter get through an awful weekend and didn’t have a lot of spare time to fight with a credit card company. I turned over the card and called the number on the back. After pushing a number of buttons (no, I wasn’t trying to pay my bill, my bill was paid) and saying the number and then

punching in the number, I finally was connected to a woman who I could swear said she was in Florida. Maybe her name was Florida. She explained the problem to me: I had taken a taxi (from Virginia) to the District of Columbia, but the credit card was charged by a company in Baltimore. “Maryland,” she said, as if it was obvious. “Maryland,” she said, “is not Washington, D.C.” Why was a company in Baltimore charging me for a trip from Dulles to D.C.? “Do you know where Maryland is?” I asked her. A long pause on her side. I repeated the question. That’s when I started to lose it. She was in the Philippines. Nothing against the Philippines. I’m sure her knowledge of geography would be quite adequate for cardholders in the Philippines — and certainly better than that of most Americans. But I’ve never even been to the Philippines. I was using my card right here in the United States. I asked to be transferred to a supervisor in the United States. Another long hold. Call dropped. Returned to the Philippines. No supervisors available. I said I’d settle for being transferred to anyone in the United States. Eventually, I was. I explained my frustration. Doesn’t the credit card company understand that even if they are paying lower-wage costs for a call center in the Philippines, they also are losing skills that are valuable to the company; that people like me, who are troubled by the wholesale outsourcing of jobs, who are trying to save the jobs of people like her, don’t particularly enjoy being humiliated in restaurants because somebody somewhere in the world thinks it’s suspicious that you would pay a Maryland company to get from Virginia to D.C.? Don’t they understand that from now on, if I have a choice, I won’t use their credit card because I want to support American workers, that I am ready to vote with my pocketbook and my checkbook and, yes, my credit card? She thanked me. She got it. She was in Maryland. (Susan Estrich is a professor of Law and Political Science at the University of Southern California Law Center.

LETTERS Apparently, Mr. WIles is quick to play race card when it suits him To the editor, In reading Mr. Wiles letter last week, it was refreshing to learn that liberals are not the only ones to play the race card. In his frustration or lack of moral character, Wiles falsely accuses me of “calling those who disagree with liberals and their policies as ‘racist’.” He goes so far as to reference my “March 22 letter” to the editor. In researching this letter, I found that no such letter existed for that date. In investigating March 22, 2011, I found that a letter of mine had been printed wherein I address comments to a letter written by Mr. Stephenson. In my response I state, “but for the political season soon to be upon us, these conspiracy theories and lies contribute to the ‘abject fear mongering and racism’ that goes along with the farright agenda” — I speak to “conspiracy theories and lies” not presidential policies. Wiles purposely distorts what I said and uses race to undermine my credibility. Apparently he is quick to use the race card when it suits his purposes. Or maybe this is Wiles’ way of demonstrating the libelous conservative way of being “humorous”. He may even label me as a “thin skinned elitist” because I take offense to his lies that impinge upon my integrity. I have no problem with people

questioning the president’s policies, I question many myself, but I will, and have, spoken out when the media and contributors to this forum make “personal” racist comments about the president. In the past I have been critical of Wiles’ arrogant and demeaning attitude toward those who write to the editor and express views he disagrees with and I find this characterization of me to be very unfortunate but not surprising. By his malicious misrepresentation of my statement he does a disservice to himself, this publication, and other subscribers. The media has created an ideological world, one that has a few load voices but has devaluated objective debate to a virtual nothing as has been exemplified by Wiles’ much ado about nothing missives he has submitted lately. Wiles is grasping at straws when he gives examples of Professor Sandy’s “personal” and “demeaning” attacks. Each example given illustrates Sandy’s strong views and opinions on various issues, but in none of them does he make “demeaning” attacks on individuals in an effort to smear their credibility. Apparently because his views differ from Wiles’ they are to be deemed “attacks”. L. J. Siden Gilmanton

Govt. mission is to make education affordable for all Americans To the editor, President Obama should be known as the “Education President”. He has encouraged investment in public school education, worked to raise k-12 standards and made it possible for middle class families to afford postsecondary education. Instead of waiting for Congress to fix a broken “No Child Left Behind” system inherited from the Bush years, he has given states a choice and a chance to improve their educational system by using local solutions. Over 46 states have been empowered to improve their school systems using federal dollars. Science, technology, engineering, and math education have a new lease and look at local schools to help students prepare for good paying jobs. State and local innovation have

can education Government has a mission in education and that mission is to make education affordable to all Americans. Public education is under attack and it is time to realize that education policies that have been formulated by previous Republican administrations will lead to few students able to take advantage of the American education system. One of the things that all third world countries have in common is little or no public education and lots of private education. Better jobs and a higher standard of living are a result of a substantial investment in public education. Think about that before you cast your vote in the November elections. Joe Denning Bristol

Don’t pass law that you must tolerate or recognize my existence

Romney gave McCain 20 years of tax records; what’s the big deal?

To the editor, To entice you to read this letter, the text will be brief and to the point. Bob Meade, thank you for your words regarding one of the best, Corpsman Jones — friend to so many he has helped, and those of us who just like to be around an example of a “great American”. Betty and I are just so amazed at a house on Messer Street hidden by brush and rundown looking for what we could see. What a transformation into such an inviting property — building and landscape. Nice job! At this time Phyllis Schlafly (phone) and Ovide Lamontagne in studio will be my radio guests Saturday. While I play a part in the political arena, and have served, I do abhor politics — or maybe that is others, who are in the political arena. And in turn liberal/socialist loons reciprocate. Hey, don’t pass a law that you must tolerate or recognize my existence. Those folks have the First Amendment. And then to the elite Republicans, as I refer to those who see themselves as THE PARTY leaders; some of them

To the editor, In 1999 Mitt Romney “left” his company called Bain Capital and went to work for the Olympics. He remained the president, CEO, and owner of Bain Capital. He attended board meetings as well. He also continued to collect a large salary of $100,000/year from Bain Capital for two more years. Bain Capital took American companies apart and sent jobs to other countries. Outsourcing jobs is one of the main reasons American workers are struggling. Do you believe that he had nothing to do with decisions made by his own company? Mitt Romney has several bank accounts outside the USA. This is also true for many of the top donors to his campaign. It is legal to have these accounts. You and I have to pay taxes on our bank interest each year. Taxes on such things as interest are what fund our government and reduce the deficit. Are people who use foreign bank accounts acting in the best interest of the United States? Mitt Romney says he is the great job creator. When he was governor of Massachusetts, his state ranked 47th out of 50 states in job creation. Why should we believe he would do a better job creating

won’t hesitate to support a Democrat candidate. I received a call from a Franklin resident several weeks ago suggesting that I might want to endorse Bill Grimm in the GOP Primary because there was “something” about the other candidate in the primary. I became angry with the caller. Kinda makes one wonder what the reporter from The Monitor had for an interest in this primary. Oh, that’s right, the reporter has covered Franklin city politics before. Question for the voices of tolerance here in the Lakes Region: Will you be tolerating this: (CBS – Chicago) “Equality Illinois is launching a campaign against Chick-Fil-A – petitioning universities and lawmakers to evict the fast food restaurant from their campuses and planning a ‘kissin’ campaign by gay and lesbian couples outside Chick-Fil-A restaurants?” Barack, Rahm, and Menino, they don’t seem to be very tolerant, do they?

jobs for the whole country? Governor Romney endorsed the Paul Ryan Plan. The plan calls for more tax cuts for the richest Americans. The last 12 years tell us that giving the rich more money does not create jobs. Do you think the laws should be changed to allow them to pay even less than they do now? President Obama released tax records for 12 years. President Bush released tax records for eight years. Governor Romney has only been willing to release his tax records for one year. When Senator McCain was considering him for vice president he gave the Senator over 20 years of tax records. Even Republicans are asking him to release more tax information. Why do you think he is refusing to release more of his tax records? Very wealthy people are contributing huge sums of money to the Mitt Romney campaign. Are their interests the same as yours? What are they expecting in return for these large donations should Mitt Romney get elected? These are just a few questions for all of us to consider before we vote. Paul Bonneville Lochmere (Tilton)

LETTERS Constitution interferes with what liberals would turn country into To the editor, I have spent the past several months busy with life. Graduations, adoptions and giving my daughter’s hand away in marriage can keep you extremely busy. I have noticed the various letters that have been written and the general themes they have followed. I wanted to respond to these letters to set the record straight when their liberal-progressive misinformation was printed but life was too busy. Life is still busy but there is time once again to share the facts along with my thoughts and opinions on the issues of the day. I am prepared to cut through all the spin and distortion of the truth. I don’t know if anyone has heard of the latest proposal from President Obama in light of the recent Supreme Court decision. In order to support the “Green Energy” sector and Government General Motors, both of which have received BILLIONS OF TAXPAYER DOLLARS, the president is looking for Congress to pass a law that requires every American to purchase a solar panel and a Chevy Volt or pay a $1,000 annual penalty tax. The money collected will be utilized to provide subsidies to the “Green Energy” sector. Of course this isn’t true but the scariest part of this story is that it can happen. If Congress and the president decide that the American people should be purchasing, or not purchasing certain types of products all they have to do is tax everybody for either participating or not participating in the activity they want to regulate. It is true that the House of Representatives has the responsibility to author all taxation legislation and there are very few limits in the Constitution as to what form that taxation is in but I wonder if Chief Justice Roberts realizes that the taxes in American Affordable Healthcare Act, better known as Obamacare, originated in the U.S. Senate, making it an unconstitutional tax. Unfortunately no lawsuit can be brought over taxation issues until the tax is being collected. I guess we will have to wait for Supreme Court Part 2. I have noticed the several letters from Mr. James Veverka on various subjects. The extreme level of hatred that he shows towards anyone who doesn’t 100-percent agree with his beliefs is palpable. He has no problem taking a personal attack on someone to a full out attack on every person or group that might agree with whoever receives the brunt of his hatred. James, I don’t know if it is because you were not loved by your mother as a child or if you were beaten by your father growing up but this level of hatred you have for others is not healthy and you should seek some professional medical help. There is a difference between civil political discourse/debate and outright hateful personal attacks. According to new legislation introduced to stop bullying in schools, your teachers would be required to call the police on you. I guess the schools respect the First Amendment as much as you do. There have been letters attacking Mitt Romney on his record as governor of Massachusetts and his time at Bain Capitol, based on the lies President Obama’s campaign have put out in talking points and commercials. The problem is these claims have been debunked by outside organizations such as Fact-

falsehoods in another letter but I don’t think President Obama wants anyone to compare his record to Mitt Romney’s. There were a lot of letters about the Republicans War on Women. This again is another set of blatant lies put out by the DNC to reframe the argument away from what the issues are. It is said that Republicans want to restrict a woman’s access to contraception, which couldn’t be farther from the truth. The focus of the argument is about the president and HHS director making a rule that violates the U.S. Constitution. Nowhere in Article 2 is the Executive Branch allowed to order one person or organization to pay for another person’s products. Since this was directing the churches in this country to pay for something that is in violation of their religious covenants, beliefs and teachings, it also violates the First Amendment, which states “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” I know you liberal-progressives have a hard time following the facts but there is no attempt to restrict women from contraception. Various styles and methods of contraception can be obtained at any Wal-Mart, Target or K-Mart in this country at a cost ranging from $4 to $30 per month. If someone is in the poverty level they can receive these products for free from Planned Parenthood. I don’t know why these progressives haven’t written anything about the Democrat’s War on Women. Do they even realize that President Obama pays his female staff less than his male staff or that all of the Democrats in the U.S. Senate and about one-half of the Democrats in the U.S. House pay their female staff 12 to 18-percent less than the male staff performing the exact same work in the exact same positions? Do they realize that the according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics the unemployment rate for women is nearly double that of men under the president’s policies and actions to return America to work? I know you socialist-loving liberalprogressives don’t like the fact that the Constitution interferes with what you would like to turn this country into but this is the law of the land. I saw the letter from Mr. Veverka stating that the U.S. Constitution is about central planning but I am still trying to figure out how you get that from the sections you quoted. Even my son in middle school can read your citations and see you are so sadly mistaken in your analysis. I can go into greater detail on the issues I have touched on in this letter and there are so many facts I have researched on the unemployment numbers, the taxes on the poor and middle class that Obama said he would repeal and the president’s methods of increasing the number of people on food stamps and welfare. I am back from my absence and ready to set the record straight. It would make civil discourse and debate much easier if the liberals would research the facts and stop resorting to name-calling, lying, distortion and personal attacks when the facts don’t support what they say.

LETTERS We offer our sincere appreciation for all that was done to control fire To the editor, On Tuesday, July 17, a ranger on the Belknap Mountain Tower spotted a fire on our property in Gilford. Within minutes, members of the Gilford Fire Department notified us and were on the scene investigating. The fire was in a remote, rugged area of the property, approximately one-half mile from any road or trail, in very dry conditions. For what turned into be four days and an overnight, this small but persistent fire was fought by members of the departments from Gilford, Laconia, Belmont, Gilmanton, Tilton-Northfield, Alton, and

Barnstead. We were so impressed with the professionalism and the fast response by these departments. They all worked to keep the damage done to the property to a minimum. We wanted to publicly recognize this effort. We send our sincere appreciation to all involved, especially Chief Stephen Carrier of Gilford. You don’t realize the value of these public service organizations until you need them to protect you and your family. Al Bagley Chris Burke Gilford

GUNS from page 2 not and has not been pushing for that ban, a nod to the politics of gun control. There is no interest among many lawmakers of both parties to take on the divisive matter. Especially not with an election in just over 100 days. Sealing the matter, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday the Senate’s schedule is too packed to even have a debate on gun control. Asked if the Senate might debate the issue next year, Reid said, “Nice try.” Public opinion has shifted away from tighter gun control. Twenty years ago, polls showed that a substantial majority supported stricter limits on guns. Now Americans appear evenly divided. Nearly every statement on the matter from Romney and Obama includes reminders that they stand by

the Second Amendment. From the White House, Carney said: “There are things that we can do short of legislation and short of gun laws.” The lack of legislation reflects that reality, too: Police say laws and background checks are often futile in keeping someone with horrifying intent from executing a massacre. Authorities say the suspect in the Aurora, Colo., shootings broke no laws when he purchased the guns he is accused of using, and he passed the required background checks. Obama and his team “gain nothing politically, and they just don’t have the horsepower to pass anything,” said William Vizzard, professor emeritus of criminal justice at California State University, Sacramento, and an author on gun control politics.

Temporary injunction granted against Union Cemetery neighbor LACONIA — A Superior Court judge granted the Union Cemetery a temporary injunction against a neighbor who allegedly encroached on the property and removed a large amount of timber, dirt, rocks and stone. Belknap County Judge Kenneth McHugh ordered Calvin F. Dunn Jr. of 217 Garfield St. to stay off the cemetery property, not to send any agent or relative of his on to the property, and to stop all logging activities. He also ordered Dunn to have no contact with any Union Cemetery Directors or maintenance crew members until the lawsuit filed by the Cemetery against Dunn is settled or until a permanent injunction is granted. In a suit filed against Dunn, the Union Cemetery

said he knew where the property line was and over the course of the winter entered on to cemetery land and removed the stone and timber. The alleged theft was reported by a person walking their dog. City police responded and turned the matter over to the N.H. Forestry Service. According to the pleadings, when the forest ranger spoke with Dunn, he allegedly said that if the cemetery directors hadn’t called the police he would have finished what he was doing, cleaned up the property and the directors never would have known. Cemetery directors said they was no possibility they wouldn’t have noticed the “vast amount of timber that was clear cut and the expansive alteration of the terrain.” — Gail Ober

University President Rodney Erickson and the board of trustees “have publicly emphasized that their goal is to find solutions that rest on the principle of justice for the victims,” a school spokesman said. The statement from the man’s attorneys said Victim 2 suffered “extensive sexual abuse over

many years both before and after the 2001 incident Michael McQueary witnessed.” McQueary testified in December at a hearing that he had seen Sandusky and a boy, both naked, in a team shower after hearing skin-on-skin slapping sounds. “I would have described that it was extremely sexual and I thought that some kind of intercourse was going on,” McQueary said.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, July 27, 2012— Page 9

Key GOP House leader says he’ll urge Executive Council to block $2M sale of State School BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — With the Belknap County Commission apparently set to decline the state’s offer of the former Laconia State School site, the city’s prospects of acquiring the property likely hinge on marshaling sufficient political support in the Statehouse for its offering price of $2.16-million. The governor and Executive Council must authorize the transaction and there are a number of lawmakers with misgivings, chief among them House Majority Leader Gene Chandler (R-Bartlett), who said yesterday that Senator Jim Rausch (R-Derry) and David Boutin (R-Hooksett) shared his concerns. Chandler believes the offering price is too low and even questions selling the property. “I don’t want the state to sell that much land for that little money,” Chandler said flatly yesterday. Seeking to strengthen the city’s hand, Councilor Matt Lahey (Ward 2), who has been in the forefront of the effort to acquire the property, and City Manager Scott Myers met last week with Governor John Lynch, who intends to tour the site next month. The property consists of 228 acres divided between four tax parcels. The largest, some 200-acres, is bounded by North Main Street to the east, Meredith Center Road and Eastman Shore Road to the north and Ahern State Park to the west and south and divided roughly in half by Right Way Path. There are some 26 buildings on the parcel, all in varying degrees of disrepair, all but a handful on its western half. All three smaller parcels are leased to the city for 99 years, until 2099, for $1 a year. They include the Robbie Mills Sports Complex, 10.2 acres on Eastman Shore Road, an undeveloped 10.4-acre lot at the junction of Old North Main Street and North Main Street and an unimproved wooded lot of 7.5-acres at the corner of Lane Road and Meredith Center Road. In 2011, the Legislature directed the Department of Administrative Services (DAS) to offer the property to the city for $10-million and, if the city passed, to offer it to Belknap County for its fair market value and if the county passed, to place it on the open market for not less than its fair market value. After the state appraised the property, the city met its $10-million offer with a counter-offer to purchase the site for its appraised value of $2.16-million. Without responding to the counter-offer, the state discounted the value of the three leased parcels and offered the property to the county for $1,760,000. The county has until August 15 to act on the offer. If the county accepts the offer, Chandler said “I will argue vociferously against it.” He said that he had not spoken with the Executive Council about the offer, but volunteered “that is where I will argue vociferously.” Chandler, who chairs the Capital Budget Overview Committee and serves on the Long Range Capital Planning and Utilization Committee, both of which oversee state property, said “we need to be vigilant in acting in the best interest of the state. The money that has been talked about is not the best interest of the state.” In particular, Chandler said that if the property were sold, the so-called “Designated Receiving Facility” (DRF) two buildings at the northern end of the GILFORD from page one second, Hayes made the motion to grant Drew a live entertainment motion without exotic dancing. He also wanted it known that some members of the community had personally told him eliminating exotic dancing from Gilford would be a good thing. The motion passed by a vote of two-to-one with Selectman John O’Brien joining Hayes in the majority and Benavides voting against. Benavides said yesterday that he voted against the partial restoration because he felt Drew deserved the full license.

property housing six individuals with developmental disabilities or acquired brain disorders who have committed sexual offenses, would have to be moved. The cost of relocating the facility is estimated between $1-million and $1.6-million, or half to three-quarters the appraised value of the entire site. The DAS is preparing to list the property on the open market in the county, as expected, passes. In accordance with the legislation, Mike Connor, director of the plant and property division of the DAS, plans to engage a redevelopment and marketing consultant to prepare a request for proposals (RFP) and marketing plan. The department has budgeted $75,000 for the marketing effort which Commissioner Linda Hodgdon told lawmakers earlier this year would be conducted on “a national and/or global scale.” Connor anticipates the RFP would be issued by November 15. At some unspecified time afterward, the proposals would be evaluated, a buyer selected and a recommendation presented to the Governor and Executive Council. The Legislature stipulated that the sale must close no later than May 1, 2013. Anticipating the county will pass, city officials are poised to submit their $2.16-million bid, which Lahey insists is in the best interest of the state to accept. He said that it matches the appraised value,

including the value of the parcels on which the city holds leases, and exceeds the offer to the county by $400,000. He noted that there are environmental issues that must be resolved before the site can be redeveloped, which diminishes the value of the property to a private buyer who would not be eligible for federal funding to address them. Furthermore, Lahey, who chaired a commission convened by the Legislature to consider the future of the property, said that when asked, no state department or agency expressed any interest in using all or part of the property. However, since the Legislature directed the DAS to market the site, there is no assurance the agency would present the city’s offer to the governor and Executive Council, let alone that it would be accepted, until an effort was made to solicit higher bids. Chandler said that he expected the RFP to be issued and indicated he would be willing to consider a sale at “a reasonably fair price.” Alternatively, he suggested the state could keep the property on the market until real estate values increased. In the meantime, while the state is marketing the property, voters will return a new governor, Executive Council and Legislature, which could take a very different approach to the future of the property.

Maurice Sawyer house at the Meadows coming down; board to review scaled-back site plan on Mon. By Gail OBer

GILFORD — Wrecking crews remained in the Sawyer Meadows yesterday, tearing down the old farm house that was once home to family patriarch Maurice Sawyer. According to Gilford School District Scott Isabelle, the School District will plant grass where the farm house and green houses stood as part of their plans to improve the overall appearance of the property. He said the three barns will stay as they are and are all being used by the school district. Noting that the inside of the farm house had been damaged some time ago by a fire and that there was some asbestos concerns, he said the district determined it was unfeasible to use it for any school purposes. He said the district consulted with Andy Howe of the neighboring Beans & Greens Farm as well as a greenhouse consultant and learned the greenhouses were “beyond their useful life.” The Planning Board will review the scaled back version of original site development plan on Monday night for the 64 acre parcel given to the School District by Raymond and Barbara Carye in 2001. According to the online version of the Belknap County Register the Carye’s bought the house in 1962 from Maurice and Rachel Sawyer. It’s not known if the Carye’s ever lived there but Conser-

vation Commission member John Goodhue remembers the Carye’s owning a sheep farm and the farm managers living in the farm house. Isabelle said the plan now is to irrigate and put sod on the football and practice fields and expand the practice field so that in the future it could be used for a sporting field like lacrosse or soccer. He also said that the plans for a large formal parking lot have been scaled back. He said the district will not be going into the wetlands so the need for the wetlands permit from the Department of Environmental Services is no longer necessary. He also said the School Board scrapped the plans to alter the terrain. There will be no drainage as previously planned, said Isabelle, because the Department of Transportation determined the School District couldn’t direct the runoff into an existing DOT culvert and it would be too expensive to build an additional one. He said after the Planning Board review the next step is to provide a runoff plan to the DES for the time period during the field construction. Isabelle said the district has until 2016 until its current DES permitting expires. With the blessing of the Planning Board, he said the district can begin fundraising for the field improvements. The Planning Board meets Monday night at 7 p.m. in the Gilford Town offices.

IRWIN from page one The new “pro turf” field and surrounding amenities are part of a $16.8-million project that includes an expansion and renovation of the Huot Regional Technical Educaiton Center. Irwin’s gift secures the naming rights to the planned athletic facility’s press box. Bank of New Hampshire, the district previously announced, has purchased the naming rights to the athletic stadium itself. Irwin, a member of the high school’s class of 2002, was a stand-out golf player while a student. He readily agreed to a request from Superintendent Bob Champlin and City Councilor Matt Lahey that the Irwin Automotive Group play a significant role in the capital campaign. “I think it’s a great opportunity to help out the community, the high school. The area has been tremendous to me, my family,” he said. More than a gesture of gratitude, Irwin sees his gift, and the project as a whole, as an investment in the city’s future. Improvement at the High School would complete a system-wide overhaul, he noted. The Laconia Middle School is new construction and here have been recent improvements to the city’s three elementary elementary schools. Those investments, he felt, would attract young families looking

for a community where education is valued. “A good, solid school system is pretty fundamental... This is a great step in the right direction.” When Irwin graduated a decade ago, high school enrollments were in the 800s. The school has shrunk by about 20-percent since, though numbers in the younger grades appear to indicate that the school population has stabilized, said Champlin. The capital campaign gift is only the most recent example of the Irwin Automotive Group partnering with the school system. Irwin sits on the Auto Youth Education Foundation Board, which encourages students to pursue automotive education. When the Irwin service department upgrades its sophisticated equipment, the old are donated to the Huot’s automotive program. Students will visit the service shop to see what the work is like, and some will even be offered jobs after graduating. “Some of the programs are terrific, they do a great job and produce great technicians,” Irwin said. The district hopes to announce a successful completion of the campaign by homecoming weekend in September. For those who would like to give, but at a more modest level, the campaign is offering the sale see next page

With radio tower issue still up in the air, commissioners set September deadline By RogeR Amsden FORTHE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Belknap County Commissioners feel that time is running out on whether or not they will be able to use a new communications tower erected on Belknap Mountain and are looking at a September deadline for installation of needed upgrades to the Belknap County Sheriff’s Department communications system. The new tower, which would provide upgraded capabilities, has been completed but is the subject of litigation brought by the vendor who built the tower against the state. County Administrator Debra Shackett said that the most recent word received by Sheriff Craig Wiggin, who briefed the commissioners two weeks ago on the situation, is a cryptic e-mail he received from a state official working on the issue that he should ‘’be prepared for a sudden move.’’ Wiggin was not at Wednesday’s meeting but commissioners said they were tired of playing a frustrating waiting game and want to either get access to the new tower or proceed with upgrades to the 30-year-old equipment on the current tower. Many other agencies, including the State Police and the Lakes Region Mutual Fire Aid Association, are also looking to use the new tower. ‘’We need a timeline. This is bad,’’ said Belknap County Commission Chairman Ed Philpot of Laconia,, Commissioners intend to have the tower issue on the agenda for their first meeting in September and make DRUGS from page one Police said Mary Onley, 46, of 32 Doris Drive and Shawn Jogan, 35, of the same address, had 750 units of bath salts and 500 units of synthetic cannabinoids in their home. Police said they also found packaging for several thousand more units. According to complaints obtained from the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division, each faces two separate counts of possession of Alpha-PVP and two separate counts of possesfrom preceding page of engraved bricks starting at $125, and granite pavers for $1,000, which will be used to line the walkway into the stadium. Engraved granite steps that will lead from the parking area up to the stadium may be purchased for $5,000. Checks should be made out to the Laconia School District and mailed to 39 Harvard Street, Laconia, NH, 03246.

a decision at that time on which tower they will put money into for upgrades. Commissioners, reacting to a letter from the Gilford selectmen calling on them to institute a fee-based system for dispatch services, reiterated their opposition to an a la carte system for county services, noting that not all communities in the county make equal use of all of the services provided by the county. Selectmen had maintained in that letter that communities which choose not to fund dispatching services in their own budgets should pay the county for the dispatch service they utilize at the county level. The letter also asked that the county allocate the necessary funds for a study to develop a county-wide police emergency dispatch system similar to the Lakes Region Mutual Fire Aid Association. Commissioners agreed that they would and and said that they have also talked with the mutual fire aid group about a consolidated dispatch center. ‘’They’re open to the idea but not enthusiastic,’’ said Shackett, who said that there was also not a much enthusiasm on the part of Laconia Police for a county-wide police dispatch system. She said that the mutual aid association is hopeful that it will get to keep the building it presently occupies on a 17-acre parcel of land at the former Laconia State School property and will also fall heir to the adjacent building being vacated by the Lakes Region Community Services Council and be able to use it for its 911 services.

sion of AM 2201. Each also faces two counts each of possession with intent to distribute Alpha-PVP and two counts each of possession with intent to distribute AM-2201. According to a variety of on-line Websites, Alpha-PVP is described as a stimulant and is marketed on overseas Internet sites as a novel designer drug. AM-2201 is reportedly a synthetic drug that acts as a potent cannabinoid receptor. Online blogs describe the effects of smoking it as short-lived but often resulting in headaches, hallucinations, panic attacks and vomiting. Police said the seizure and arrests “were part of several that occurred in a nationwide crackdown on the most recent trend in drug abuse.” Judge Jim Carroll ordered both held on $250,000 cash bond each. At the request of the prosecutor, he also ordered the affidavits supporting the search and arrests sealed from the public. — Gail Ober

3 lawsuits filed related to people allegedly harmed at 2009 Bike Week vendor tents By Gail OBer

LACONIA — Two separate incidents involving personal injury on the Lobster Pound restaurant property during the 2009 Motorcycle Week have led to separate lawsuits against the company that owns the restaurant, as well as a request to the court by the owners of the business that it order its insurer to pay claims associated with the incidents. The Lobster Pound property is leased out to dozens of traveling merchandise vendors during Bike Week and is typically one of the heavier trafficked areas during the annual rally. In the first claim filed by Debra and Gerard May of Massachusetts against J.H.L. Restaurant Group, Inc., Debra May states she paid an entry fee to go into the “Wild Turkey Tent” — an event she said was sponsored by the Lobster Pound — and listen to the music. She said after she and her friends were inside, she was picked up by someone who was an agent, employee, or servant of the Lobster Pound and placed on a stage for the amateur Wild Turkey dance competition. She said other women in the audience were also picked up by these same people and placed on the same stage. While dancing, May said she was “suddenly and without warning” pulled off the stage by a woman who was dancing next to her who slipped and fell off an unguarded stage edge. May said she hurt her head, back and hand in the subsequent fall. She claims the restaurant had a duty to exact reasonable care when building and designing the tent and the stage and a duty to train and supervise the people it hired. May also said the restaurant has a legal duty not to serve alcohol to intoxicated patrons and that some of the women who were put onto the stage with her were drunk, including the woman who pulled her off causing her to fall. In the second suit, Alfred R. Nash of Northfield said he went into the area managed by the Lobster Pound where he said he was assaulted by a member of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club. Nash said he and a friend were in the vicinity of a vendor booth being operated by Hells Angels and some

of the club members were being loud, obnoxious and unruly. He said he was outside the booth when one of the bikers thought he was trying to steal a T-shirt. He said he was struck repeatedly in the face and about the head with an unknown instrument. After the assault, Nash claims the Laconia Police found him injured on the property with blood streaming from his mouth and the back of his head. He said no one from the Lobster Pound had done anything to protect him, to render medical assistance or to contact the authorities after the assault. Nash was taken by ambulance to Lakes Region General Hospital and treated for concussion, a laceration to the back of his head and a “complex laceration to his upper lip” that will require extensive reconstructive surgery. He claims JHL had a duty to ensure the Lobster Pound premises were secure and safe and to avoid taking action or failing to take action that insured its patrons were not subjected to unreasonable harm. Nash claims the company permitted the Hells Angels,”which was known to have caused incidents of violence during prior Motorcycle Weeks,” to operate a tent on the property. He claims the company also failed to supervise the members, to maintain a secure establishment, and to intervene in what his lawyer claims was a “foreseeable attack.” Both of these suits have prompted JHL through its attorney Paul Fitzgerald to petition the court to order Roberts & Associates Insurance Company of Hanover, Mass. to pay the claims. Fitzgerald said a representative of JHL met with an agent of the insurance company in 2007 and specifically told the agent about Motorcycle Week and its need for enhanced liability coverage for that period. He said the two had a lengthy conversation that resulted in JHL getting what the agent described as a “top of the line Cadillac contract.” He said JHL informed the insurance company in a timely fashion when it learned of the above complaints. He said Roberts & Associates have refused, to date, to pay the claims and he is asking a judge to order they to do so as well as to pay for legal fees.

HEPATITIS from page 2 before being hired in New Hampshire in April 2011. While other health care workers have been prosecuted for diverting drugs and infecting patients, the Kwiatkowski case stands apart, said U.S. Attorney John Kacavas. “Because of his employment as a traveler, working for agencies and being sent around the country to various states, it really has tentacles all over the country,” he said. “Its scope is unprecedented and scary.” A court-appointed lawyer declined to comment at a court hearing this week. Messages left for Kwiatkowski’s lawyers after business hours Thursday were not immediately returned. Kwiatkowski, who is being held on

federal drug charges, told authorities he did not steal or use drugs. He said he learned he had hepatitis C in May, but authorities say there is evidence that it was diagnosed as early as June 2010. Kacavas said nailing down that date is his top priority, but in the meantime, the uncertainty is further complicating efforts by hospitals to make recommendations about testing. In Michigan, officials at Oakwood Annapolis Hospital in Wayne noted that there was no indication that Kwiatkowski had hepatitis C when he was employed there from January to September 2007, and that he passed at least two drug tests during that time. State health officials said they are still looking into other locations see next page

M’borough in final stages of updating property values MOULTONBOROUGH — Updated property values in this township are entering the last stages of being finalized for 2012. Vision Government Solutions, the appraisal firm retained by the town, will shortly mail an informational letter to property owners of the town’s approximately 7,380 parcels of land which states the proposed assessed value of land and building(s) as of April 1, 2012. Property owners may call Vision Government Solutions at 1-888-844-4300 on any business day from August 1, through August 14, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. to arrange an informal hearing to discuss these proposed values. The hearings will be held on August 10, 15, 16 and 17, so property owners are encouraged to call Vision as soon as they can. Topics of discussion can include an explanation of the valuation, information on the property record card as well as the market data used to determine the proposed value. The notices being mailed out are not tax bills, and Vision will not be able to discuss or predict the actual amount of the tax bill that will result. Informal hearings will be by appointment only and held at the Town Hall located on 6 Holland

Street. As an alternative, taxpayers may schedule their meeting as a telephone conference call if they cannot attend one of the four hearing days to be held. As in the past they can also submit written evidence they would like have considered in their review of property values to Vision Government Solutions, c/o Assessor’s Office, PO Box 139, Moultonborough, NH 03254. The deadline to submit this evidence for review is August 14. Joel R. Mudgett, chairman of the Selectboard said, “With many of the properties inspected by Vision this year as part of our renewed measure and list program there may have been changes in more property data records than usual. We encourage everyone to review their assessing information on the town’s website.” In addition to the letter being mailed, the proposed value and property data can be accessed as of July 30 on-line at www.moultonboroughnh.gov ) Click on Departments and Boards and then Assessor). A print-out of all proposed values will also be available at the Town Hall Administration office and the Public Library during normal business hours after July 30.

from preceding page where Kwiatkowski worked and what steps, if any, they need to take. Other states have moved ahead with notifying patients and offering free testing. Twenty-five former patients at St. Francis Hospital in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., where Kwiatkowski worked for three months in late 2007 and early 2008, have been asked to get tested. In Kansas, state health officials are sending letters to about 460 patients who were treated at the cardiac catheterization lab at Hays Medical Center from May 24, 2010, to Sept. 22, 2010. The state also is setting up an informational website, and the hospital has set up a telephone hotline. In Maryland, hundreds of patients are being contacted by the four hospitals where Kwiatkowski worked between May 2008 and March 2010. None of the four, which include The Johns Hopkins Hospital and a Veterans Affairs hospital in Baltimore, reported that Kwiatkowski was fired or that his behavior raised red flags. That wasn’t the case in Arizona. Kwiatkowski completed one stint at Maryvale Hospital from March to June 2009 without apparent incident but was fired 11 days into his second stint, at the Arizona Heart Hospital. Barbara Yeninas, a spokeswoman for SpringBoard Healthcare Staffing and Search, said her agency reported Kwiatkowski’s firing to a state regulatory board, as well as a national certification organization. Aubrey Godwin, director of the Arizona Radiology Regulatory Agency, said as the agency began

investigating, Kwiatkowski surrendered his certification that allowed him to work in the state. “His statement was that he didn’t have enough resources to fight it,” Godwin said. Officials have identified 270 patients at Maryvale and fewer than 200 at the heart hospital who could have been exposed to Kwiatkowski. At Houston Medical Center in Warner Robins, Ga., CEO Cary Martin the identification process hasn’t been completed yet. Kwiatkowski worked in the cardiac cath lab there from October 2010 to March 2011 but did not have access to the hospital’s medication system, he said. Kwiatkowski didn’t have direct access to Exeter Hospital’s medication system, either, but investigators believe he was able to steal medication that other employees were in the process of preparing for patients and switch it with syringes he had filled with another liquid, possibly saline. Former co-workers reported that he sometimes came in on his days off and attended procedures he wasn’t assigned to. Testing originally was recommended only for patients who had been treated at Exeter’s cardiac lab, but state officials have expanded the recommendation to include anyone who underwent surgery or was admitted to the intensive care unit because Kwiatkowski sometimes took patients to those areas. Clinics planned for this weekend and early next week were postponed Thursday due to logistical problems. If convicted of the charges he currently faces — tampering with a consumer product and fraudulently obtaining a controlled drug — Kwiatkowski could get as many as 24 years in prison for.

Officials alert N.H. seniors about phone scam involving ‘Area Code 876’ MANCHESTER (AP) — Kim Nichols says she thought her retired airline pilot father living in New Hampshire was too smart and fiscally conservative to fall victim to a telephone scam. But $85,000 in losses and three family interventions later, she remains stunned and saddened. Nichols pleaded with senior citizens gathered at the William B. Cashin Senior Activity Center in downtown Manchester on Thursday to be alert to the scam dubbed “Area Code 876” — a Jamaican area code. FairPoint Communications, AARP volunteers and law enforcement officials who coordinated

the educational seminar say the scam targets older people, particularly in northern New England. Nichols, who was invited to speak at the seminar, said her father is 76, lives in West Ossipee and is “very educated, very smart and very, very careful about his money.” “The fact that my Dad is a victim of this scam has blown all our minds in my family,” Nichols said. Officials say the scam operates much like other phone scams that advise would-be victims they’ve won cars or cash, but must send money to cover transfer fees, transportation or taxes. But the 876

scammers are particularly sophisticated — doing demographic research to pinpoint wealthier people through property and other public records — and come on with a soft sell initially, officials say. Patrick McHugh, president of FairPoint Communications in New Hampshire, called the 876 scheme “dangerous and pervasive.” “They prey upon your trust, then exploit it and steal your money,” McHugh told about 30 people attending the seminar. “These callers are relentless.” Nichols said her father’s ordeal began in February, but he remained secretive and evasive about his relationship with “Diane” and other scammers who persisted in phoning him for months. “I’m sure he was very, very ashamed,” said Nichols. “There really is an element of brainwashing with this.” Nichols, who lives in Herman, Maine, did not want to identify her father by name for fear he would be targeted again. She said she twice thought she’d convinced him it was a scam, only to find him again talking to “Diane” and sending her money because she was supposedly losing her job. That prompted Nichols to go through her father’s home while he Mention you was at church to gather saw this ad in the his credit card stateLaconia Daily Sun ments and other finanand get a FREE cup cial records.

WINE from page 2 and Gov. John Lynch on the case. Lynch’s spokesman, Colin Manning, said Thursday that Delaney’s office then began a full investigation at Lynch’s urging. State Executive Councilor David Wheeler said it all “smells of a cover-up.” “We probably should investigate the investigators,” he said. “There a lot of unanswered questions here. Why did the liquor commission investigate itself from the beginning?” Mollica didn’t return an email Thursday requesting comment on the investigation. WMUR reported that lawmakers, including House Speaker Bill O’Brien, have questioned why law enforcement officials weren’t notified about the missing wine earlier. But Mollica told the station that because the commission has a law enforcement unit, it’s not required to go to police.

Former S’ton firefighter indicted for credit card fraud

SANBORNTON — A grand jury has indicted a former part-time firefighter for allegedly using a town of Sanbornton credit card to allegedly purchase items for his own benefit at an Irving Station in Tilton. The indictment from May 31, 2012 says Brian Blanchette, 38, knew the card was either stolen or that its use was unauthorized by either the issuer of the card of the person to whom the card was issued. The value of the property or services exceeded $1,500, making this crime a Class A felony. A lieutenant for the Sanbornton Fire Department said Blanchette was no longer employed there and

Blanchette was a firefighter in Gilford and most recently Franklin.

Senior Assistant State Attorney James Boffetti warned them not to wire money to anyone they don’t know. “Once money is sent, it’s nearly impossible to get it back,” Boffetti said. He said it’s also difficult to identify the perpetrators for criminal prosecution and he was not optimistic his office would be able to find them.

7th annual swim to benefit loons set for August 3 MOULTONBOROUGH — On August 3 beginning at 6 a.m. a team of eight swimmers will swim the seven-mile length of Squam Lake, from the Squam Channel in Holderness to the Sandwich Town Beach, to raise funds for loon preservation. The 2012 swim team includes Wendy Van de Poll, Rose de Mars, Mark Longley, Celeste St. Pierre, Kit Kilbourn, Chip Broadhurst, Louise Utzinger and Rick Van de Poll. The swimmers will be accompanied by spotters Gloria Hoag, Peg Longley and Susan Deme. The Squam Lakes Natural Science Center has generously offered to donate a boat and captain, Dale Lary, to the cause. The 7th Annual Squam Swim is a fundraiser to benefit the Loon Preservation Committee’s Squam Lake Loon Initative, an ongoing effort to increase monitoring, research, management and outreach to change the fortunes of Squam’s loons. Since 2005, Squam Lake has seen a dramatic decline in its number of loon pairs and an average of fewer than three loon chicks raised per year, not nearly enough to maintain its loon population. This year loons are having another difficult year on Squam Lake. Four adults banded in previous years did not return to the lake this summer, fewer of the remaining birds nested, and fewer eggs hatched loon chicks—all problems that Squam’s loons have

been dealing with in recent years of disturbingly low survival and nesting. Since 2005, The Squam Swim has become a much anticipated yearly event in the Lakes Region and has raised over $75,000 for Squam Lake loons. With the funds raised through The Squam Swim, LPC has worked to investigate the causes of declines on Squam, and reverse these declines to recover a healthy population of loons on the lake. This year, funds raised through the swim will allow LPC to extend its field season on the lake; test eggs from failed nests for contaminants; continue banding and monitoring the health of Squam’s loons; expand our research into the causes of declines, including testing sediments and crayfish (loon food) for contaminants; educate lake users to encourage a culture of respect and appreciation for loons; and continue intensive management to help loons cope with their challenges. For more information on the Squam Lake Loon Initiative or to make a donation visit www.loon.org or call the Loon Preservation Committee at 603-476-5666. The Squam Swimmers have been training throughout the summer for this event, and people are invited to the Sandwich Town Beach at 11:30 a.m. to congratulate them as they complete their journey.

GILFORD — Singer-songwriter Jackson Browne will bring his summer 2012 Acoustic Tour to the Meadowbrook U.S. Cellular Pavilion on Monday, July 30.

Watkins first gained recognition as a founding member of the GRAMMY-winning trio Nickel Creek.

I’m floored by her amazing instrumental virtuosity and by her beautiful voice, and most of all, I love her songs.” Browne will be donating $1 from each ticket sold on the U.S. Acoustic Tour to charity. In addition, premium benefit seats are available for purchase through The Guacamole Fund: www.guacfund.org. Pre-sale information and VIP packages are available at www.jacksonbrowne.com.

Nor’Easter brings 64 softball teams to region Rock show to meet LACONIA — The Nor’Easter Softball Organization is set to host their 15th annual Nor’Easter Classic Tournament on the weekend of July 27-29. Games will be held at fields around the region in Belmont, Gilford, Laconia and Meredith. As with previous years, the Lakes Region-based tournament was in high demand. It is one of the largest ASA sanctioned Junior Olympic softball tournaments in the state with sixty-four teams registered this year in all four divisions (12U, 14U, 16U, 18U). There are Nor’ Easter teams represented in each of the divisions. Keeping up with tradition, the tournament will kick off showcasing the four Nor’Easter teams on Friday night. The 12U team will start at 5 p.m. at Memorial Park in Laconia, followed by the 14U and 18U teams. The 16U team will have their start at 6 p.m. on Bryant Field in Belmont. Pool play will consist of three games, starting Friday and continuing into Saturday. On Sunday, teams will be ranked based on their pool play results and placed into brackets to compete in single-elimination play.

Club Treasurer Jessica Fleck is tackling her first year as tournament director, with help from President Kimberly Sargent, Vice President Fred Marchione, Secretary Stacie Boyajian, along with the various tournament sponsors. Veteran director Dick Dumais has coached Fleck through her first year organizing the event. “His 10 years of knowledge running the tournament has been a great asset to me,” said Fleck, “I don’t know how I’m going to do this without him next year. I can tell you, he’s put a lot of time and effort in to planning the tournaments.

By Holiday Mathis coping strategies. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Being completely engaged in an endeavor produces a state of “flow” that dissolves emotion, staves off hunger and delays the need for sleep. The more “flow” experiences you can create for yourself, the happier you’ll be. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You may hesitate to dive into your joy. Maybe someone near isn’t able to do the same, or there’s another kind of hold-up delaying your satisfaction. When you finally can do what you want, you’ll savor the experience. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It’s like you are writing your destiny with an indelible marker. Make a strong commitment, and then back your decision with immediate and irreversible action. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). This is an age when many people spend what they don’t have to buy what they can’t afford to impress who they don’t know. Your realistic and modest approach will be a breath of fresh air. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ve wanted to rid yourself of that personality quirk for some time. Have you considered the upside of keeping it, though? This unique part of you has benefits. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (JULY 27). You know what you believe in, and you let yourself be guided by those principles. Fortune favors you as you stand up for your beliefs without flaunting them. You’ll be well paid for your work in August. An attraction builds through the fall. You’ll make new commitments in November and reach a goal in December. Aquarius and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 1, 43, 3 and 19.

TUNDRA

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It’s just as easy to create useful outcomes as it is to waste energy in disorder. You’ll make sure that each action you execute produces a reaction that’s as productive as it is equal and opposite. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Comfort, power or fame is not necessary because so much of what you do is its own reward. You’re not immune to the attraction of comfort, power and fame, and maybe you’d even like it. The point is that you don’t (SET ITAL) need (END ITAL) it. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The conversations you have, the ways you burn your energy and spend your time, and the love you give throughout the day will, by sundown, have you absolutely tired out. CANCER (June 22-July 22). One might think that happiness was something that once learned you could always recreate. Not so. Happiness takes different forms, so it can never be created in the exact same way twice. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It’s lucky for the trees that they don’t have eyeballs, so they can’t discourage themselves with comparisons to the bigger, taller trees in the forest or loom superior to smaller growth. Be like the trees. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The act of kindness you perform will release a rush of serotonin in your brain. This is one among many reasons that you don’t care if the kindness is ever repaid. Giving is getting. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). James Bond wasn’t born cool. He’s a highly trained agent who has mastered strategies to cope in a variety of situations. Think of Bond as you welcome every opportunity to develop your own set of

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, July 27, 2012— Page 21

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, July 27, the 209th day of 2012. There are 157 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 27, 1942, during World War II, the First Battle of El Alamein in Egypt ended in a draw as Allied forces stalled the progress of Axis invaders. On this date: In 1789, President George Washington signed a measure establishing the Department of Foreign Affairs, forerunner of the Department of State. In 1866, Cyrus W. Field finished laying out the first successful underwater telegraph cable between North America and Europe (a previous cable in 1858 burned out after only a few weeks’ use). In 1909, during the first official test of the U.S. Army’s first airplane, Orville Wright flew himself and a passenger, Lt. Frank Lahm, above Fort Myer, Va., for one hour and 12 minutes. In 1921, Canadian researcher Frederick Banting and his assistant, Charles Best, succeeded in isolating the hormone insulin at the University of Toronto. In 1942, Benny Goodman and his Orchestra and vocalist Peggy Lee recorded “Why Don’t You Do Right” in New York for Columbia Records. In 1953, the Korean War armistice was signed at Panmunjom, ending three years of fighting. In 1960, Vice President Richard M. Nixon was nominated for president on the first ballot at the Republican national convention in Chicago. In 1967, President Lyndon B. Johnson appointed the Kerner Commission to assess the causes of urban rioting, the same day black militant H. Rap Brown said in Washington that violence was “as American as cherry pie.” In 1981, 6-year-old Adam Walsh was abducted from a department store in Hollywood, Fla., and was later murdered. (His father, John Walsh, became a well-known crime victims’ advocate.) Movie director William Wyler (“Ben-Hur”) died in Los Angeles at age 79. In 1996, terror struck the Atlanta Olympics as a pipe bomb exploded at Centennial Olympic Park, directly killing one person and injuring 111. (Antigovernment extremist Eric Rudolph later pleaded guilty to the bombing.) One year ago: A Russian space official (Vitaly Davydov) said that once the mammoth International Space Station was no longer needed, it would be sent into the Pacific Ocean, probably in 2015. Today’s Birthdays: TV producer Norman Lear is 90. Actor Jerry Van Dyke is 81. Actor John Pleshette is 70. Singer Bobbie Gentry is 68. Actress-director Betty Thomas is 64. Olympic gold medal figure skater Peggy Fleming is 64. Singer Maureen McGovern is 63. Actress Janet Eilber is 61. Rock musician Tris Imboden (Chicago) is 61. Actress Roxanne Hart is 58. Country musician Duncan Cameron is 56. Comedian-actress-writer Carol Leifer is 56. Comedian Bill Engvall is 55. Jazz singer Karrin Allyson is 50. Country singer Stacy Dean Campbell is 45. Rock singer Juliana Hatfield is 45. Actor Julian McMahon is 44. Comedian Maya Rudolph is 40. Rock musician Abe Cunningham is 39. Singer-songwriter Pete Yorn is 38. MLB player Alex Rodriguez is 37. Actor Seamus Dever is 36. Actor Jonathan Rhys (rees) Meyers is 35. Actor Blair Redford is 29.

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Dear Annie: My younger brother, “George,” is on the autism spectrum. He has a friend, “Cindy,” with similar needs. For the past few years, my parents have welcomed Cindy into our home, and now she feels comfortable inviting herself over and doing whatever she wants. This means bossing George around and yelling at him while he avoids her by watching TV in a different room. She also carries our cats as if they are dolls. She won’t let go even when they protest by scratching and biting. Cindy is in her late teens and should know better, but she is loud, pushy and obnoxious. She doesn’t listen when someone tells her “no.” Despite my best efforts to be polite and civil, I cannot tolerate her. When she’s here, I leave the house or lock myself in my room. The problem is, my parents are often too preoccupied with business, phone calls and visits from our neighbors to deal with Cindy, so I have to be the emergency adult. I have tried talking to my parents about Cindy, pointing out her behavior and the way she treats George, but my pleas fall on deaf ears. Cindy’s parents aren’t any better. In fact, I think they are taking advantage of us by letting Cindy spend so much time here. But I seem to be the only one bothered. Is there anything I can do to put an end to these visits without causing offense? I can’t take much more of her. -Ignored and Outraged Dear Ignored: Cindy’s behavior may not be as tempered at this age as you seem to believe it should be, so we urge you to be less judgmental. In fact, you are in an excellent position to explain to Cindy how to treat the cats more gently and behave in a more acceptable manner. But if you don’t wish to work with her, she should not be your problem. George can tell your parents if he no longer wants Cindy to

visit, and they should handle it. And when Cindy is around, your parents should supervise more closely. We suspect they are avoiding her, too. Dear Annie: My daughter and I recently hosted a bridal shower in my home. We planned a fun event and took special pains with the food and drink offered. I was terribly offended when several guests came with their own large sodas. We had lemonade, iced tea and water all served in crystal pitchers with lemon slices. Meanwhile, their big plastic cups with straws were not a pretty sight, especially when they plopped them down on my end tables. Please tell people that when they are invited to someone’s home where refreshments will be served, it is rude to bring their own. -- Not a Fan of the Big Gulp Dear Fan: Consider them told. But don’t expect them to listen. Too many folks do not understand what appropriate behavior means -- and resent any attempt to be educated about it. Dear Annie: “Retiree in Florida” took issue with a reader who said his widowed father sold the family house and used the proceeds to buy a new one with his new wife. She said whatever assets she built up with her husband are for her children, not his next wife. When my wife died, the first thing I did was replace the old carpeting and repaint the inside of the house to get rid of the smoke smell from her cigarette habit. When I remarried, I moved. If any of my children say I should have given them money from the sale of the house, I will tell them that if they want money, they should go to work. If I had died first, my wife could have done the same thing. If “Retiree” wants the kids to get the house, she should put it in the will. -- Happier Now Than Ever
