Lakeport apartment building fire apparently triggered by sparkler By Gail OBer
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — Fifteen people are homeless following a late Tuesday night blaze that gutted one wing of a seven family apartment building and sent people from the surrounding neighborhood scrambling into the night with just the clothes on their backs. The blaze at 158 School St. in the
Lakeport section of the city was reported at 11:43 p.m. and eye witnesses said it was only a matter of minutes before one entire section of the house was in flames. “It was insane how fast it went up,” said next door neighbor Dave Ferruolo, who managed to use a personal video camera to film the entire fire. Ferruolo said he was in bed and “sort of
asleep” when he heard what he described as a “very panicked scream” from a man who lives in the now-gutted building. “He was screaming for his kid,” said see LaKEPOrt page 14

Speculation as to how Casey Anthony will try to rebuild her life
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A big fat book deal? A life in hiding? Motherhood again? What could the future hold for Casey Anthony when she gets out of jail, perhaps as early as Thursday? A day after she was acquitted of killing her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, in a case that was a coast-to-coast TV sensation, many of those who followed the riveting drama are wondering. “Anthony will always be dogged by the belief that she killed her child,” said Lewis Katz, a law professor at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. “She will never lead a normal life.” In a country known for second acts, never is a strong word. But should she be released at her sentencing Thursday, after nearly three years behind bars, Anthony could be hard-pressed to piece together some semblance of a normal life: — She may have to get out of town.

Appeals court orders immediate halt to military’s gay ban SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A federal appeals court ordered the U.S. government on Wednesday to immediately cease enforcing the ban on openly gay members of the military, a move that could speed the end of the 17-year-old rule. Congress repealed the policy in December and the Pentagon is already preparing to welcome gay military personnel, said the ruling from a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. There’s no longer any purpose for a stay the appeals court had placed on a lower court ruling that overturned “don’t ask, don’t tell,” the judges said.
In the meantime, the court order blocks the military from discharging anyone based on sexual orientation, a Pentagon spokesman said, news that brought relief from gay rights advocates who say there are still dozens of gay or lesbian personnel under investigation. “The ruling ...removes all uncertainty — American servicemembers are no longer under threat of discharge as the repeal implementation process goes forward,” said R. Clarke Cooper, Log Cabin Republicans executive director. The Pentagon will comply with the
court order and is taking immediate steps to inform commanders in the field, said spokesman Col. Dave Lapan. The next step: the official end to “don’t ask, don’t tell.” Defense officials said the chiefs of the military services are scheduled to submit their recommendations on the repeal to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta on Friday. As soon as the Pentagon certifies that repealing the ban will have no effect on military readiness, the military has 60 days to implement the repeal. see GAY BAN page 5
PHOENIX (AP) — Arizonans are calling it the mother of all dust storms. The mile-high wall of ominous, billowing dust that appeared to swallow Phoenix and its suburbs is all that locals can talk about. It moved through the state around sundown Tuesday, halting airline flights, knocking out power to nearly 10,000 people, turning swimming pools into mud pits and caking cars with dirt.
The sky was still filled with a hazy shade of brown Wednesday as residents washed their cars and swept sidewalks. Because dust storms, also known by the Arabic term “haboobs,” are so hard to predict, Tuesday’s took everyone by surprise. Seemingly out of nowhere, the 100-milewide storm moved like a giant wave, the dust roiling as it approached at up to 60 mph. Once it hit, visibility dropped to zero in some areas, the sky turned nearly black,
trees blew sideways, and even downtown Phoenix skyscrapers became invisible. “Just the height of it looked like a special-effect scene from a movie, like a dust storm out in Africa,” said Charlotte Dewey, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Phoenix. “It looked so huge, looking at the city down below, it was just specks of light and miniature buildings. “I have a feeling that people will be talksee DUST page 16

Creating American Police Motorcycle Museum a dream come true for former cop BY ROGER AMSDEN AMSDEN NEWS AGENCY
MEREDITH — Police motorcycles have always been an obsession with Doug Frederick, a former Hartford, Conn., motorcycle police officer, who this month opened the American Police Motorcycle Museum in the former Burlwood Antique Center on Rte. 3. “I got my first police motorcycle when I was 13. It was a 1955 Indian and my parents didn’t know about it until I brought it home,’’ says Frederick. “They were inexpensive and easy to work on and I’ve been collecting them ever since,’’ says Frederick. He’s also been collecting a lot more than motorcycles, having put together an impressive display of old photos, films and other police motorcycle memorabilia which is now on display at the museum, along with 35 old motorcycles, many of them on loan from police departments around the Northeast. “It’s really been my dream to put together a place like this which showcases police motorcycle history. Not many people are familiar with it, but in the 1920s and 1930s there were thousands of police motorcycles all over the country and they did most of the traffic law enforcement,’’ he says. Frederick says that the museum’s top floors feature an authentic police motorcycle from every decade and a written history of each, as well as pictorials display showcasing police motorcycles through time. Downstairs there’s a 1948 Indian Chief motorcycle outfitted for the Laconia Police Department, and many of the motorcycles on display are Indians, which were built in Springfield, Mass, and were the popular choice of police departments throughout the Northeast. A website which features Indian Motorcycle history says that as early as 1904 the New York City

police department was using Indian bikes. But a NYPD motorcycle unit history page says that the first police motorcycle unit wasn’t formed until 1911, which would place Indian a few years behind its then arch rival, Harley-Davidson, which sold its first police motorcycle to Detroit in 1908. Indian, which at the outbreak of World War I in 1914 accounted for 40-percent of all American motorcycle production, even added unique features to its

bikes, including a left handed throttle that it said made the Indian better for police work by allowing police to maintain pursuit while allowing officers to fire shots right-handed at fleeing suspects. Frederick says that motorcycle units played a key role in what today would be known as community policing by allowing officers to patrol neighborhoods and stay in close contact with the public, building rapport with the people they were protecting while earning the trust and respect of young people. He’s trying the same thing at the museum, offering young people the opportunity to be sworn in as Junior Motor Officer after taking a pledge to be respectful and kind to all, to read every night for a half hour and to respect their parents. The museum also displays early police motorcycle training films, footage of police motorcycles as early as 1918, and many rare clips from newsreels and early movies. In addition to the movies, hundreds of early still photographs are featured in a slide show. There is also a World War II Jeep and a 1941 Indian motorcycle, specifically designed for military use during World War II, on the museum’s ground floor, where a maintenance shop is actively involved in restoring a 1929 Indian police motorcycle and a 1970 Triumph police motorcycle. Among the recent visitors was Tom Mascone of Stoneham, Mass., a former motorcycle police officer in Somerville, Mass., who owns a summer home in the Lakes Region. “This is great. There’s huge amount of history under one roof. I’m really glad that someone took the time and effort to showcase the people who rode police motorcycles. It was tough work and you were always exposed to the elements,’’ says Mascone. Another visitor was Larry Carpenter of Belmont, whose dad, Larry Sr., was the first New Hampshire state trooper to patrol on a motorcycle. Carpenter said that a picture of his dad on display at the museum was probably taken at the Indian factory in Springfield, Mass., in 1929.

LRGH & other N.H. hospitals fire back in war with Legislature with $40M claim By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — LRGHealthcare has joined three of the state’s largest hospitals in claiming that the state owes them altogether close to $40-million in back taxes. The amended tax returns are the first volley in a counterattack against the Legislature, which changed the rules of the Medicaid program by withholding almost $250-million in payments for uncompensated care to 13 hospitals in the state budget. For two decades, the state and the hospitals, like a pair of con artists, have played the Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) fund of the Medicaid program to tap a source of state revenue and balance state budgets. Dubbed “Mediscam,” the fiscal shell game shuffled a tax levied on hospitals, money from the state treasury and federal matching funds. Each year, on October 15, each hospital paid the state a tax — the “Medicaid Enhancement Tax” (MET) — say $10-million, based on their net revenue. Simultaneously the state returned the $10-million and more, say $2-million, to the hospital as a DSH payment. The pea was under the third shell, where the Medicaid program, matched at least half but often more of the money the state returned to the hospitals. In this example, the hospital paid $10-million in tax, received $12-million in DSH payments and netted $2-million while the state collected $10-million from the hospital, $6-million from Medicaid, paid $12-million to the hospital and netted $4-million. As long as the state refunded 100-percent of the tax, the hospitals were willing partners. Since 1991, the state has pocketed at least $2-billion from “Mediscam.” But, this year, the state decided not only to withhold the DSH payments but also to keep the MET receipts According to the New Hampshire Center for Public Policy Studies, the change will leave nine of the 13 hospitals, including LRGH which last year posted a $2.3-million operating loss, operating in the red.
While contemplating a variety of counterstrokes, including litigation, the four hospitals, which will likely be joined by others, have begun by recalculating their past tax payments. Stephen Ahnen, president of the New Hampshire Hospital Association, told the Manchester Union-Leader, “in the past you would always get back what you paid, so ‘no harm, no foul,’” adding that the rules have changed. Henry Lipman, senior vice-president and chief financial officer of LRGHealthcare, said yesterday that he reviewed the taxes paid by both Lakes Region General Hospital and Franklin General Hospital for the past four years. The MET is levied at 5.5-percent of net revenues. Lipman said that, like
Phony call sets up pizza delivery man for robbery in Laconia LACONIA — Police said they have a number of leads in Tuesday night’s robbery of a pizza delivery person. Lt. Matt Canfield said someone called Shooter’s Tavern in Belmont just after 10 p.m. and asked for a pizza to be delivered to an address near the Laconia Ice Arena. He said the person on the phone allegedly told the person who took the order to bring change for a $100-dollar bill. When the driver arrived at the address, he told police two men put a sheet over his head, and took
his money, wallet and car keys. It is not known what happened to the pizza. The victim suffered a few cuts and scrapes but was otherwise unharmed. The two men allegedly fled on foot and the N.H. State Police brought in a K-9 that tracked the two men into the woods. Police found the wallet and car keys. Canfield said police have identified two possible suspects but are asking anyone with any information to call them at 524-5252 or the Greater Laconia Crime Line at 524-1717.
GAY BAN from page 2 Officials said they believe the ban could be fully lifted by the end of September. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. The services have been training their forces on the new law for the past several months. The Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps are largely done with the training, and the Army is on track to finish the active duty training by July 15. The ruling on Wednesday came in response to a motion brought by Log Cabin Republicans, a group for
gay GOP members, which last year persuaded a lower court judge to declare the ban unconstitutional. After the government appealed U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips’ decision, the 9th Circuit agreed to keep the policy in place until it could consider the matter. The appeals court reversed itself with Wednesday’s order by lifting its hold on Phillips’ decision. It cited as a reason the Obama administration’s recent position in another case involving same-sex marriage that it is unconstitutional to treat gay Americans differently under the law.

other hospitals, LRGH included billings that were never paid when calculating its revenue on the understanding it would be reimbursed for whatever it paid. Therefore, LRGH paid tax on its bad debt contrary to federal regulations. Lipman estimates that LRGH is entitled to a rebate of some $9-million. Meanwhile, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center has filed a claim for about $11-million, Concord Hospital for about $10-million and Eliot Hospital in Manchester for $9-million. Kevin Clougherty, commissioner of the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration, said hospitals have until July 10 to file their 2010 tax returns.

Replacing property as our source of wealth creation One of the interesting things about our country, the independence of which the Founders declared 235 years ago July 4, is that we have been a property-holders’ democracy. This is not something the Founders originally advocated. While they protested taxation by a British parliament in which they were not represented, they did not think that everyone had a right to vote. Like their British contemporaries, they thought that only those property-holders should vote. Otherwise representatives elected by the poor majority would vote to take away the property of the rich minority. But in the early years of the republic, it became apparent that almost all white males were farmers who owned the land they farmed. As property-holders, they could be trusted with the vote. So by the early 19th century just about all the states extended the franchise to adult white males. It would be extended in time to blacks and women, as well. In this property-holders’ democracy, elected representatives have naturally sought to facilitate the accumulation of property, as Walter Russell Mead has pointed out in his unfailingly interesting Via Media blog on the-american-interest.com. For a century this property took the form of the farm. Government sold land cheaply and on credit, and under the Homestead Act gave it away free to those who worked it for a few years. Government set up agricultural colleges and financed agricultural research. It regulated the rates railroads could charge farmers. In the Great Depression, when 25-percent of Americans still lived on farms, government started subsidizing producers of certain crops. Amazingly, it hasn’t stopped, although only 2-percent of Americans live on farms, though one hears that agricultural programs have been on the chopping block in various budget negotiations. In the 20th century, most Americans moved to cities, and the new form of property ordinary folks accumulated was their houses. Government stepped in to subsidize that property, too, in the form of lowor no-interest mortgages and tax deductions for interest payments. For many years, these policies worked pretty well. Just as government enabled people to accumulate property in the form of farms, it enabled people to accumulate property in the form of urban and then
suburban houses. Then, as with farm programs, government went too far. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, with support from administrations of both parties, financed loans to uncreditworthy borrowers on the theory that, hey, you didn’t really need a down payment or steady income to be able to afford a house. The result was a housing bubble that burst and produced the weakest economy America has seen since the 1930s. Gretchen Morgenson and Joshua Rosner tell the harrowing story in their recent book, “Reckless Endangerment.” So just as the rural farm is no longer a means by which the great bulk of Americans can accumulate property, so the suburban house seems unlikely to be a wealth-accumulating investment for the next generation or two of Americans. What, Walter Russell Mead asks, will take its place? How will most Americans continue to accumulate wealth and enable us to maintain a robust property-holders’ democracy? Finding an answer, it seems to me, must start with recognition of a change that has been occurring for decades and that has accelerated with the financial crisis and recession: The fact that Americans are less likely to work their whole careers in large organizations and more likely to work in small organizations and skip from one to another. We are less likely to find success and accumulate wealth as small interchangeable cogs in very large machines and more likely to do so as unique contributors to nimble and adaptive enterprises. We can no longer rely on the brand names of our employers but must seek to establish brand names of our own. That sounds pretty vague, and one problem with a free market economy is that no one can foresee exactly how it will grow in the future. The Internet holds out many possibilities, but few seem visible initially. But attempts to resurrect the recent past seem futile. Efforts to restore bubble housing prices seem no more effective than the efforts a century ago to maintain the farm as the focus of national life. Our property-holders’ democracy has served us well. Let’s hope it leaves the way open for us to develop new forms of wealth accumulation.

LETTERS A collapse in value of the dollar would cause global mayhem To the editor, There is much concern about the massive U.S. fiscal deficit and poor prospects for fiscal consolidation. The cause of the concerns could prompt investors to flee from the U.S. dollar. Were that to happen the result would be the dollar would undergo a large disorderly devaluation against currencies of major developed and of emerging countries. There are concerns on all sides of the political spectrum that America’s present fiscal trajectory is unsustainable. The fiscal burden comes from the enormous future burden of public spending on pension and health care “entitlements”. There is no agreement on the correct course of remedy. The Republican Party broadly advocates deep spending cuts tied with tax cuts to stimulate revenue-generating economic growth as a means of reducing the budget deficit. The Democratic Party is more tolerant of higher taxes and resistant to cuts in social programs. The problem is that neither party recognizes the enormity of issue. Neither is willing to forgo short-term political gain for the greater good of the nation. In addition to sharp differences over medium-term fiscal consolidation, short-term fiscal decisions are also proving difficult to resolve. The partisan brinkmanship over the budget for the rest of fiscal year 2010/11 was finally resolved in April. Congress must make decisions in coming month on raising the U.S. Treasury’s debt ceiling and approving the budget for 2011/12. In both cases, the stakes are higher than the past budget spats. Even short of a technical default by the U.S. government on its debt failure to grapple effectively with these issues could prompt a loss of confidence in the U.S. fiscal position. An early sign of this came when ratings agency Standard and Poors’ changed its outlook for the U.S.’s long-term credit rating from “stable” to “negative” in April. A loss of confidence in the U.S. fiscal position will lead foreign investors not only to cease accumulating dollar assets which means they would stop funding the U.S.’s large currentaccount deficit and to start selling
would set in as declines in the value of the dollar elicit further selling which further erodes the value the dollar which would lead to additional selling. The value of the dollar would overshoot to the downside, finally stabilizing at a level at which the U.S. trade and current accounts swung into surplus. It is called deflation. It will bring on a depression. In the U.S., government bond yields would spike upwards, triggering a rise in interest rates across the economy. The Federal Reserve would be forced to raise policy rates in an attempt to shore up the dollar. Devaluation would push up imported inflation, particularly the price of fuel and other commodities, but overall inflationary pressures would be kept in check by a large output gap and a relatively low effect of exchange rate moves on inflation. Globally, the financial system would be severely shaken. Banks would return to hoarding capital because of fear of exposure to counterparty risk. Panic selling would lead to another lurch downward in asset markets, which would be highly disruptive for the global economy. This may currently be a relatively low probability scenario as central banks are very unlikely to sell their holding of dollar assets en masse. The scale of central bank dollar foreignexchange reserves makes them a very powerful actor. Even if their firepower does not match that of the private sector they act more quickly and decisively than the private sector. In the case of China, a shift out of dollars would entail a move away from the renminbi’s dollar peg, which is seen by Chinese policymakers as fundamental to China’s successful development strategy. Central banks generally, regardless of whatever the views of their governments on the U.S., would be more likely to engage in a co-ordinated intervention to support the dollar and preserve stability than to spark a run on it. A collapse in value of the world’s reserve currency and U.S. Treasuries would cause mayhem on financial markets globally. It would fuel fears about the stability of the global financial system. This would have a severe negative impact on the world economy.

LETTERS Right-to-Work states produce low-wage jobs with poor beneﬁts
Open house allowed students to display their gymnastic skills
To the editor, Recently, the New Hampshire House and Senate passed HB-474, the so-called “Right to Work” legislation, even though it is opposed by many, if not most, citizens as well as labor and even some business groups. “Right to Work” laws are often presented by their proponents as a matter of workers having a choice to bargain directly with their employers! Perhaps if America was still a largely rural nation of small farmers and small “mom and pop” business people who had direct and personal relations with each other, this model might work. Over the years, however, more and more businesses have become large, impersonal corporations that care about nothing but the “bottom line.” An individual worker might be able to fairly bargain with a small, familyowned business but it is impossible with a large corporation. It is also hard for an individual public worker to bargain with government bureaucracies. This is why we have unions. We have them because against a corporation or government bureaucracy, with their power, influence, and legal staffs, the individual worker has little power to bargain as an individual. Big business and some “out-ofstate” Right-to-Work lobbyists with very specific agendas maintain that a Right-to-Work law in New Hampshire would create jobs and reduce unemployment. What they fail to mention is that New Hampshire has a lower unemployment rate than almost all “Right-to-Work” states. The only thing that Right-to-Work laws have achieved in the way of “producing more jobs” is producing low-wage jobs with few if any benefits. Not only does HB-474 interfere with collective bargaining between union members and their employers but it would also make it that a union member could conceivably be criminally charged for trying to recruit a non-union member. Governor Lynch did the right thing and vetoed HB-474. But, House Speaker Bill O’Brien, a supporter of this and other equally mean pieces of anti-labor legislation, promised that he would hold a vote to
To the editor, On Friday, June 10, Lakes Region Gymnastics Academy held its annual student performance Open House. During this 2.5 hour event, hundreds of students in numerous levels from the parent/toddler class to the highly competitive girls Pre-Op and Compulsory Teams performed for hundreds of family and friends. This annual Open House allows the students to display and show the great skills that are developed with the art and sport of gymnastics. Spectators often ohh and ahh, (similar to a fireworks performance), at the confidence, strength, perseverance and determination that is expelled through many children ages 2-18, as gymnastics does not only help burn the ample energy children have but offers early development of these lifelong skills needed to succeed. This year’s event was no less a won-
override the Governor’s veto. So far, the Speaker has refused to hold such a vote. Why? Apparently, he did not have the votes he thought he had to sustain an override. Perhaps he is waiting to hold the vote at a time less convenient for the bill’s opponents? I think the Speaker himself essentially said that he was waiting for his opponents to change their minds. Is the Speaker perhaps speaking of sane, moderate members of his own Republican Party who see this proposed law as a bad thing for New Hampshire? Is he planning on more harassment? It is well-known that Speaker O’Brien cannot tolerate any criticism and is not above bullying his opponents. During a legal, peaceful demonstration at the Statehouse against the proposed budget, Mr. O’Brien illegally expelled lawful demonstrators from the Statehouse gallery. Mr. O’brien’s spokesman even suggested that a threatening phone call to the speaker’s house was probably from someone who attended the rally. Those are serious accusations to make toward political opponents. If Mr. O’Brien or the police can show any real evidence that this is true, most people, even those who dislike the speaker’s positions (including this writer), would condemn such an action. It is also well-known that the speaker is especially vindictive toward members of his own Republican Party who think he is too extreme. At least 40 Republican Representatives oppose the Right-to-Work legislation and the speaker cites “party loyalty” to harass them into voting his way. The speaker is even pressuring them to absent themselves during a vote on the legislation. Those who oppose this legislation should give credit to those Republican Representatives, especially those from Belknap County, who are standing up to HB-474. We should congratulate them for resisting Speaker O’Brien’s bullying. Hold the vote, Mr. Speaker, in a fair, legal, and inclusive way! E. Scott Cracraft Gilford
Thanks for all the help with Arch Trail Travelers’ OHD food booth To the editor, The Tilton-Northfield Arch Trail Travelers would like to publicly thank the T-N Old Home Day Committee for providing our non-profit snowmobile club the opportunity to sell french fries and fried pickles as our annual fundraising event for our scholarship fund during Tilton-Northfield Old Home Day. The OHD Committee is a small dedicated group of tireless volunteers from Northfield and Tilton that enthusiastically work with our communities various clubs, small businesses and vendors. Without their guidance, wisdom and assistance this fundraiser would not have been such
a huge success. We would also like to send a sincere Thank You! to Jonathan and Judy Dupuis of the Dipsy Doodle Dairy Bar for their on-going support of our food booth. They are a huge reason our event goals were achieved. Of course, we would also like to thank everyone who visited and supported our food booth. You are the reason we will be able to continue to provide book awards to Northfield and Tilton students in memory of Jack Willey and Don Huckins. We are already looking forward to the 2012 T-N Old Home Day festivities. See you next year! Tilton-Northfield Arch Trail Travelers
from preceding page Central banks holding dollar assets are unlikely to pull out en masse at this point. This alone causes the probability of near term collapse to be lower. If the political turmoil around the world settles down, and it will, all bets are off. That should be the motivation for America to get its financial house in order while it still can. What needs to happen is: Debt must be eliminated and the budget needs to be balanced. This can only happen if spending is cut and if taxes are raised.

Taxes have to be raised because we do not have an unlimited time frame in which to eliminate our accumulated debt. Are the actions popular? Hell no. Are they necessary? Absolutely. We need to make the discussion about the future not the past or the present. Where do we want to be in the future? Just my honest opinion. Marc Abear Meredith

CASEY from page 2 have been made against her, and online she is being vilified. Nearly 15,000 people “liked” the “I hate Casey Anthony” page on Facebook, which included comments wishing her the same fate that befell little Caylee. Ti McCleod, who lives a few doors from Anthony’s parents, said: “Society is a danger to Casey; she’s not a danger to society.” — Her family has been fractured by her attorneys’ insistence that Anthony’s father and brother molested her and that her father participated in a cover-up of Caylee’s death. On Tuesday, Anthony’s parents rose from their seats without emotion upon hearing the verdict and left the courtroom ahead of everyone else. Their attorney, Mark Lippman, said they haven’t spoken with their daughter since the verdict, and he wouldn’t say whether they believed she was guilty. — Anthony is a high school dropout who, before her arrest at 22, had limited work experience. Her last job was in 2006 as a vendor at Universal Studios theme park. While she once professed an inter-
est in photography, and even found some work in the field, it’s not known whether she has skills that could translate into a career. In a 2010 jailhouse letter to a friend, Anthony said she would like to adopt a child from Ireland “accent and all.” Judge Belvin Perry will sentence Anthony on four misdemeanor counts of lying to investigators while they were looking into their daughter’s disappearance. Each count carries up to a year behind bars. At worst, she will serve only a little additional time. Prosecutors contended that Anthony suffocated Caylee with duct tape because she wanted to be free to party and be with her boyfriends. Defense attorneys argued that the little girl accidentally drowned in the family swimming pool and that Anthony panicked and hid the body because of the effects of being sexually abused by her father. The prosecutor in the case, Jeff Ashton, told NBC’s “Today” show Wednesday that the verdict left him and other prosecutors in shock. “I think I mouthed the word ‘wow’ about five times,” said Ashton, who
is retiring Friday. A spokesman said the retirement had been planned for some time. Ashton said that he believes the jurors applied the law as they understood it. “Beyond a reasonable doubt is a high standard,” he said. Anthony’s attorneys did not return calls for comment. Geneva Shiles of Orlando said she had trouble sleeping Tuesday night after witnessing the verdict from a seat in the courtroom. “I’m angry and anxious to see what Casey will do with her life now that she’s free,” Shile said. “My question is: If she didn’t do it, who did?” That question is frustrating many who followed the trial, hoping for a neat ending to a made-fortelevision case. “None of us know what actually happened,” said Roslyn Muraskin, a criminologist at Long Island University who co-authored “Crime and the Media: Headlines vs. Reality.” ‘’Maybe none of us will ever know.” Much of that will depend on whether Anthony chooses to tell her story. “I believe she’s already been bombarded as we speak by publishers and agents,” said Linda Konner, president of the Linda Konner Literary Agency, based in New York. “I think there’s a lot of interest when you’re dealing with mother and dead child.” Konner said a Casey Anthony memoir could fetch a half-million dollars or more, and she would be interested herself in securing the rights. “Because I know I could sell it,” Konner said. “I look at it as here is someone who has a story that has been very compelling to people for a long time. My personal opinion of her is irrelevant.” The judge in the case could order that any such proceeds be used to repay the costs of the search for Caylee, said Karin Moore, a law professor at Florida A&M University. Nancy Grace, the TV commentator and former prosecutor who made no secret of her belief that Anthony was guilty, predicted in an ABC interview that Anthony will prosper financially. Dismissing defense complaints that Anthony was the victim of a “media assassination,” Grace said: “There’s no assassination because tot mom is going to walk out of jail, probably, tomorrow, and she’s probably going to get a million-dollar book deal and maybe a quarter-million dollars for licensing fees for photos.” She added: “She’s going to be living on easy street, living the ‘sweet life’ she’s got tattooed on her back.” DOG from page 2 was convinced the dog was dead. Nisbet’s ex-girlfriend, Jo-Di Rose Buccafurri, called police on Monday asking what happened to the animal’s body. They told her a dog had been found in the area of the accident. It was Muzzy, with some singed fur and a limp, but otherwise fine. The couple shares custody of the dog. Buccafurri tells Fosters’ Daily Democrat that Nisbet cried when she gave him the news. from preceding page Spa, Lakes Region Floral Studio, and Funspot for their donations and contributions to allow us to raise over $1000 in a few small hours.

Let’s hold parents accountable for students behavior and grades To the editor, Today (Friday, July 1), Leon R. Albushies had a very insightful letter published responding to a number of us that have been highly critical of our public education system. As I read his letter I found myself nodding if full agreement with many of the points he made. Disruptive, disrespectful young people make teaching today a huge challenge. I can understand and empathize with teachers. Now I’m not going to insult anyone’s intelligence by saying something like teachers have to find some way to reach those kids. That’s bull. The only real questions are; 1. how do we fix the problem? To answer that we must answer the other question; 2. How did we get to this place? Answer to #2: Liberal thinking, permissive if it feels good do it, take no responsibility for your actions or those of your children. If student grades are falling, lower the standards. Even if
a student can’t read beyond a third grade level give them “social” promotions so they won’t feel bad and graduate them with their class in spite of their being ignorant as a box of bricks. We have seen this thinking over the past few decades so what did liberals think was going to happen? What did happen was that it gave students the sense of entitlement and immunity to consequences which they are passing along to their children who are now filling the desks in our schools. Okay so how do we fix it? Change the culture. Hold parents accountable for students’ behavior and grades.If some wise guy (or gal) defies, disrupts or confronts authority have the police bring, (drag) a parent out of their work, or out from in front of their video game and down to the school to deal with the child. If the child refuses to respond to the parent take both to court. If the parent isn’t responsive see next page
What is wrong with America? Corruption and outsourcing, Very un-American. Billions of dollars owed to China, For what, cheap items that break in a week?
Violence and gangs rampant in the streets, Neighbors shooting, stabbing, killing each other “Flying colors” and throwing up gang signs Demolishing the quality of life in cities. People smoking chemicals Just to get high. Robbing and stealing to support an addiction Eventually leading to homicide or suicide. Illegal immigrants jumping the border Bringing more drugs and violence Stealing OUR jobs Leaving the real citizens hungry and unemployed. Uncontrolled government spending, Handing out money to countries around the world Who don’t give a hoot about us Or would rather just have us destroyed. Faith in God, going down the drain The creator of all things, tossed aside The beliefs we were founded on Are slowly slipping away. Rap “music” poisoning our kids With killing, drugs, sex, money Wearing their sideways hats and pants on the ground What happened to Rock n’ Roll or Country? Urbanification, technolification The old ways of life are disappearing Becoming reliant on technology Cell phones, facebook, twitter, iPods, kindles, Ahhhhhh! So my friend, if you ask me What’s wrong with America Here’s my reply: too much to count. Poem by Shane Schultz, Sophomore at Laconia High School

LETTERS Unions protect best interests of teachers, often at expense of students To the editor, M. Carney came up with a brilliant idea in the June 29th letters to the editor section. Carney thinks Tony Boutin should apply for a teacher’s position if he thinks he can do better. There is little doubt in my mind that Mr. Boutin’s students would improve their knowledge of non-revisionist civics and history. Well, that is assuming school administrators wouldn’t force Mr. Boutin to include secular humanism, moral relativism and “restorative justice” as part of his teaching curriculum. This insane open borders of the mind nonsense continues to infiltrate our schools creating the ill winds that are casting future generations further adrift into moral ambiguity. This is pure mind numbing Marxist propaganda on steroids. Google these concepts and prepare to be chilled to the bone, unless you think right and wrong should only be decided by each individual person for them self. Actually, Mr. Boutin is correct in my opinion, while asserting the notion that unions cause the “collective dummying down” of teachers, as you quote him. Apparently, you don’t think talented teachers should be paid more than mediocre ones. I guess you believe that it should be almost impossible to fire bad teachers. Does it not bother you that talented teachers leave the profession to seek jobs that reward them for their skill through fair and equitable competition? Though federal spending on education has increased by 188-per cent in
real terms since 1970, there has been no significant improvement in test scores. These are all a direct result of public sector teachers’ unions. You say, “teachers deserve the pay and benefits they receive”. Spoken like a true disciple of “redistributive justice”. Equal pay for all teachers, good, bad and indifferent. Let me see if I have this right. The liberal progressive equation goes like this: providing a disincentive for teachers to do their best, devoid of private sector competition, will result in a better quality education for students. Perhaps the past four plus decades are merely an aberration, much like the many centuries of failed attempts to make socialism work. Just which letter writers were you referring to by your comment, “If they had their way, all their neighbors would take a cut in pay and live in poverty it seems”. That is exactly what happens when progressive socialists apply their redistributive wealth model to a nation. Which as Kathy Jessup notes includes, “the political left creating an educational Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell system that provides free services to illegal residents while bankrupting states and undermining educational quality”. Funny, most of your letter comes across as parroted social justice which makes your comment a blatant contradiction assuming that you were in fact paradoxically referring to so called “mean spirited” conservative types. Now, if you are also referring to consee next page
from preceding page take both to court. If you ask on what charges, pass some laws to address these issues. Stiff fines or removal of the child from the home or even to an old fashion reform school. Now I can hear all the liberals out there thinking, boy, Earle is a real hard ass. Well okay so I’m a hard ass and so was my father. If I had pulled some of the crap teachers complain students are doing today I would have felt a strap across my backside.
What’s more every kid I knew back then would tell you the same thing. Can’t you hear liberals calling CHILD ABUSE? Maybe so but so is allowing any kid to grow up to be disrespectful, narcissistic, disruptive ignorant (as those bricks mentioned above) pain in the rear. Pick your poison, Leon and other teachers. Get the problem makers out of the class rooms, the schools, and make parents pick up the tab for nonpublic education. Steve Earle Hill

City’s recycling tonnage continues to grow; council will look at updated Pay-As-You-Throw projections on Mon. By Michael Kitch
LACONIA — With the City Council scheduled to revisit a proposal to introduce “Pay-As-You-Throw” when it meets next week, recycling tonnage continued to climb in the second quarter. In April, May and June 287.76 tons of recyclable materials were collected, compared to 246.51 tons during the same period a year ago, an increase of 17-percent. The 556.28 tons collected during the first six months of the year are 83.86 tons, or 18-percent, more than collected in the first half of last year. The city pays a fixed price of $10,000 to collect recyclable materials regardless of tonnage. Therefore, every ton taken out of the waste stream and recycled reduces the cost of collecting, transporting and disposing of solid waste, which is funded by property taxes, by more than $147 per ton. In the first six months of the year, recycling has trimmed nearly $82,000 from the cost of collecting, transporting and disposing of solid waste as well as offset the cost of collecting recyclable materials with almost
$22,000 to spare. During the five years from 2006 to 2010 the collection of recyclable materials more than doubled, rising from 443.43 tons to 1,006.69 tons, and this year is again on pace to top 1,000 tons. However, the nearly 1,007 tons collected last year represents only 7-percent of all residential and commercial solid waste, which amount to about 14,000 tons a year. As a rule of thumb, 60-percent of all solid waste can be recycled. PAYT is intended to increase recycling by requiring residents to place the trash and garbage they do not recycle in a special plastic bag purchased at local retail outlets. The trash, together with recyclable materials, is collected at the curbside once a week. Trash not contained in a marked bag is left at the curb. PAYT treats trash disposal like a public utility by ensuring that households pay only for what they generate, without subsidizing those who chose not to recycle through their property taxes. Moreover, see next page
from preceding page servative writers who you claim are “blaming everybody but the kitchen sink for their views of who is responsible for all the troubles in the world”, I would respectfully take exception. In this particular case, the blame is placed in no small part on public sector unions. Those would be the type of unions that FDR and George Meany (former AFL-CIO director) were referring to when they noted that collective bargaining could never work. Perhaps you are okay with government unions negotiating with friendly politicians using our tax money which creates a situation where public interests are at odds with union interests. Or, to quote Ann Coulter, “Government unions have nothing in common with private sector unions because they don’t have hostile management on the other side of the bargaining table. To the contrary, the “bosses” of government employees are co-conspirators with them in the bilking of taxpayers”. In other words, they have the power to elect their own boss. These unions have the best interests of teachers often at the expense of students which is a part of the reason why only 13-percent of adults today are proficient in reading prose. As opposed to traditional education which astounded a visiting Alex de Tocqueville because it produced a nearly 100-percent literacy rate. “Turn off the TV and Rush Limbaugh, go outside and be happy” you say. Why that is just so “bread and circuses” of you. Yes, if only folks would just reject Fox News, talk radio, conservative/libertarian web sites, remain ignorant and accept the crumbs
and clowns of the “nanny state” bureaucrats, then life would be idyllic. Never mind that, “we are raising young people, who are, by and large, historically illiterate” notes historian, David McCollough. Only 12-percent of high school seniors were judged proficient in history according to the National Assessment of Education Progress report. Yes, let’s all just go outside, don’t worry and be happy. A cute song, but I don’t think Bobby McFerrin was referring to our broken educational system with the words, “Don’t worry, it will soon past, whatever it is don’t worry, be happy”. Let’s just keep moving generations of young people through our schools who have no idea as to why their country is exceptional and will consequently, not grow to love it, but rather embrace the anti-American, sovereignty suffocating progressive agenda. “If wishes were horses, beggars would ride”. Unfortunately, M. Carney, wishing and hoping that if the government just takes enough private sector money, all poor people will magically be lifted out of poverty and become well educated, makes all sane people fit to be tied. I’ll keep on paying attention and staying concerned while trying to uphold the vision of our Founding Fathers. You are free to blissfully jump on your unicorn, don’t worry, be happy and go dream outside, wistfully hoping tyranny will not soon be by your side. In any event, it is now the Fourth of July, so I urge you to remember the Declaration of Independence with honor and pride. Russ Wiles Tilton

METH from page one Phillips had been arrested and her two-floor apartment had been condemned. “She had five kids in there,” said Bean’s daughterin-law, who helps her family administer their rental properties. “The place is a pig pen.” In what Bean himself described as a weird twist of fate, he had gone to the block he owns on Union Avenue and Jewett Street earlier that morning for a bank foreclosure auction. Bean and his family were among of the hundreds of victims of Scott Farah and his former Meredith mortgage company, Financial Resources Mortgage, Inc., and as part of his settlement with bankruptcy trustees a California bank had foreclosed on the block and yesterday was the day for the public auction. No one said anything about a meth lab,” he said, noting the auction was postponed because there were no bidders willing to pay what the bank hoped to recover. “I guess I’m still the boss,” he said with a shrug as he surveyed the damage to Phillip’s former apartment with Acting Laconia Health Officer Shawn Riley. While Bean has had his fair share of less-thandesirable tenants, police describe him as a decent landlord who really tries to keep his buildings clean and orderly. In a recent tour of the properties, Bean showed
the coin-operated laundry he installed as well as the playground he built for the children along Jewett Street. He also showed the damaged caused by someone breaking the coin slots of his washing machines in order to steal the quarters. “Half the time I don’t even report this crap. I just fix it,” he said. Alyssa Phillips As to Phillips, he declined to comment directly about (Laconia Police photo) her other than to say he never imagined she was making and using methamphetamine and that he was personally repulsed by anyone who would put so many people in danger, especially her own children. He said he had notified the N.H. Division of Child, Youth and Family Services a number of months ago because of what he said were some “housekeeping issues” regarding Phillips that he felt were unsuitable for small children. “Let’s just say I’m less than amused,” he said. Other tenants and neighbors were also not pleased to know Phillips was allegedly cooking highly flammable methamphetamine so near where they live.
from preceding page non-profit organizations exempt from property tax would also pay their fair share with PAYT. In May, when the City Council first considered PAYT, consultant Liz Bedard projected that the program, together with increased fees at the transfer station to reflect the full cost of disposal of $82.60 a ton, would reduce the annual cost of collecting, transporting and disposing of solid waste by almost $1,3- million Her projection excluded the proceeds from the sale of recyclable materials, which were
then fetching $70 a ton. However, Councilor Henry Lipman (Ward 3), chairman of the Finance Committee, questioned her calculations and requested a direct comparison between PAYT and the city’s current solid waste operation. Bedard is expected to present that analysis to the council next week. The council meeting will be the first for Scott Myers, the new city manager. He will find PAYT a familiar issue since Dover, where he served for terms as mayor, introduced PAYT two decades ago.

An apartment at 188 Union Ave. is condemned after city police and federal authorities conducted a methamphetamine raid there yesterday afternoon. The apartment’s resident — a woman with five children — was arrested and charged with one count of possession of narcotics and one count of child endangerment. She was released on personal recognizance bail but police and fire officials say the apartment is uninhabitable until it is professionally decontaminated and cleaned.

One woman who lives nearby but didn’t want to be identified said she knows Phillips but never imagined she was making meth in her apartment. She said she had learned that Phillips’s children were all being evaluated by health care professionals but believes they were largely unaware of what their mother’s allegedly wrongdoing. “Listen, I’m no saint but this is too much,” she said, shaking her head. Yet another tenant said the rumors are that Phillips was allegedly cooking methamphetamine under a child’s playpen on the the first floor of the apartment but police have declined at this point to offer any details calling it an active and ongoing investigation.

Lynch vetoes pollution fund repeal CONCORD (AP) — Gov. John Lynch vetoed a bill Wednesday that would end New Hampshire’s participation in a regional program designed to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. The Democratic governor said in his veto message that ending the program would cost jobs, hinder the state’s economic recovery and damage New Hampshire’s long-term competiveness. The Republican-controlled Legislature supports repealing the law and ending New Hampshire’s participation in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative because it believes it is a stealth tax on ratepayers. New Hampshire is one of 10 Northeastern states participating in a cap-and-trade program for carbon dioxide. Under the program, generators must reduce pollution or bid at auction for allowances giving them the right to produce certain amounts of carbon dioxide. Proceeds from the auction are used for energy efficiency programs. Critics complain electric users are funding efficiency programs that don’t directly benefit them. They argue lawmakers adopted RGGI based on unproven science about greenhouse gases. New Hampshire’s program costs the average rate-
from preceding page lot of people coming and going from the apartment building that is slightly behind the large multi-unit block at 180 Union Ave. but said she didn’t think too much about it because people are always coming and going from the general area. Riley said he was notified by Fire Chief Ken Erickson just after 1 p.m. that there would be a meth raid at the building. He said fire departments are placed on alert because of the extremely volatile nature of the chemicals used in meth production. Police Lt. Matt Canfield said the investigation was done by Laconia law enforcement but the department called the federal government for assistance during the raid because it has the necessary expertise and equipment needed to properly clear the building, test the inside and collect the evidence. Canfield said the federal government has a chemist who gathers evidence and while drug investigations are within the scope and budget of the city, the actual evidence testing and collection is not. Methamphetamine is not new to any local police departments who have been dealing with what they describe as an epidemic for years. Last week, Ashland Police, working with federal and state law enforcement, made four arrests in a meth bust. Last year, a house in Franklin was destroyed by a fire caused by a methamphetamine raid and subsequent explosion and two fires in Hill, one that caused severe burns to the occupant, have been directly attributed to methamphetamine production.
payer about 35 cents per month. RGGI supporters say even if the science seems uncertain now, the risks of doing nothing are too great. By the time the question is answered, the damage to the environment will be irreversible, they argue. In May, Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie announced his state will drop out of RGGI at the end of the year. Christie called the pact a failure at cutting pollution and a burden to taxpayers. The decision to withdraw marks a turnaround for New Jersey, a heavily industrialized state that was an early backer of efforts to curb the heat-trapping gases blamed for global warming. New Hampshire’s House passed a bill without debate in March to repeal the state’s law, but the Senate lacked the votes to override a promised veto and amended the bill to modify the program instead. That bill later died. The House had also added the repeal to a bill streamlining permitting for construction along rivers and lakes, which the Senate sent to Lynch and he vetoed Wednesday. Lynch pointed out that the permitting part of the bill had been added to the budget package that became law last week. Lynch said an assessment by the University of New Hampshire found that RGGI’s cumulative impact through 2010 was a net benefit of over $16 million in revenue to New Hampshire. “These are funds that have been invested directly in helping New Hampshire families, businesses and local governments become more energy efficient, reduce costs and create jobs,” Lynch said. “This bill would have eliminated those energy efficiency efforts —eliminating jobs today and eliminating efforts to help businesses and families cut their energy use. Given that energy is a major cost factor for businesses, ending our energy efficiency programs would also hurt our efforts to bring new companies and jobs to New Hampshire.” New Hampshire belongs to a regional power pool, and that affects the electric rates paid by pool members. If New Hampshire withdraws from RGGI, New Hampshire’s rates would still reflect cap-andtrade costs included in rates by RGGI members that belong to the pool, Lynch said.

LAKEPORT from page one Ferruolo who said he jumped out of bed and put into real life the well-rehearsed evacuation plan he and his 10-year-old son have practiced repeatedly. “I knew something was devastatingly wrong.” He said he woke his son who was sound asleep and put on the child’s shoes. “I told him the next door house was on fire and he was to stand by the front door and wait for me,” Ferruolo said. The two left the Ferruolo’s house immediately and he sent his son down the street with his neighbor’s wife while the two men moved their trucks and cars a few blocks away. “I knew the fire trucks were coming and wanted to make sure they had room in the driveway,” he said, noting that Fire Chief Ken Erickson used his driveway for one of the trucks and was able to save his home by continuing to douse it with water. “There’s maybe 50 feet between my house and that one.” He said after he knew his son was safe he reentered his home, grabbed his video camera, some more clothes for his son, shut off the power to the house and locked the doors and windows. He said after about two minutes he could see the flames lapping up the side of the burning house and within 10 minutes the entire side of the house including the roof was completely consumed by fire. Ferruolo said his understanding of the cause of the blaze was a sparkler that was dropped on the porch on the Sheridan Street side of the building and fell between the cracks. He said the stuff that is under the porch like leaves caught fire, igniting the timbers.
Deputy Fire Chief Deb Pendergast said she was not at the fire but said the official cause was undetermined although she confirmed a propane tank hooked to a barbeque grill on the porch began venting and fueled the fire. She said she had heard the reports of fireworks but couldn’t confirm or deny the their presence at the house but Ferruolo said he could “see the fireworks flying out of the house.” He also said the firefighters were amazing. “Once they got there it was really cool how fast they set things up,” he said. He said they surrounded the house on three sides and used ladder trucks to get above the house and aim water on top of the fire. At one point, police said a neighbor tried to enter the house by climbing up one of the ladders the fire department had put up along the house. “Unfortunately I didn’t get that on film,” he said but noted he did get a picture of Aaron Rubbo, 23, of 64 Sheridan St. being led away by police in handcuffs. Lt. Matt Canfield of the Laconia Police said Rubbo was apparently trying to get some things for an elderly resident of the burning house. Canfield said Rubbo was
charged with one misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct and released on personal recognizance bail. Pendergast said the blaze went immediately to two alarms because reports from cameras on Parade Road indicated to Capt. Robert Landry that smoke could be seen from at least that far away. She said Erickson didn’t call for a third alarm but shifted second alarm responders closer to the blaze. All told, she said firefighters from Laconia, Gilford, Belmont and Meredith extinguished the blaze and departments from as far as Holderness and Gilmanton covered now vacant stations. Pendergast said the house is uninhabitable and, although the Sheridan Street side still stands, it sustained considerable heat, smoke and water damage. She said she thinks at one point in time there were two separate houses — one on School Street and one on Sheridan Street — that were joined together and converted to apartment buildings. No one was hurt in the blaze. A representative from the Red Cross said four families are homeless and asks donations be sent by mail to Red Cross N.H. at P.O.

Lynch vetoes bill that would have allowed ‘title’lenders to charge 25% a month
CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire Gov. John Lynch vetoed a bill Wednesday that would have allowed title loan lenders to charge up to 25 percent interest a month. “Thirty-one other states — including all the other New England states — ban these types of excessive interest rates,” Lynch said in Wednesday’s veto message.
Lynch said the bill allowed excessive rates to be charged that would be detrimental to families, communities and the economy. The current rate is 36 percent per year, the same maximum rate set in 2006 by Congress on title loans to members of the military, Lynch said.

2nd floor fire results in substantial damage to home of Parade Road; no one hurt in afternoon blaze By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — A Parade Road home was rendered uninhabitable by a fire yesterday afternoon. The three occupants of the home, one of whom was in a wheelchair, were able to escape without injury. The home at 2151 Parade Road in located near the Tavern 27 restaurant at Mystic Meadows. Laconia Fire Chief Ken Erickson said a call was placed to 9-1-1 yesterday afternoon for smoke in the building. When the first crew arrived, he said they found “heavy fire the second floor bedroom,” he said, with flames breaking through the roof. Police Lieutenant Matt Canfield said the heat
from the fire was so intense, “When we first pulled up, the shingles were popping off the roof.” A first alarm was called, which brought Gilford and offduty officers to assist the effort. Erickson said the first crew that arrived was able to run a hose through the front door, up the stairs of the 1.5-story cape and knock down the first before it could spread. He estimated that the structure suffered about $20,000 worth of damage and noted that the ceiling of the living room fell when it became saturated with water. He said the building was insured against fire. A representative from the American Red Cross see next page

American Legion thrilled with paid attendance during 3-day circus run LACONIA — From early Friday morning, when 1,000 people turned out to watch the raising of the big top, until late Sunday afternoon, when the curtain fell on the last performance, Don Vachon, said the Kelley-Miller Circus at Memorial Field was an unqualified success. Vachon, chairman of the special events committee of Wilkinson-Smith Post 1 of the American Legion, said that two shows — on Friday night and Saturday afternoon — were sold out and estimated the total attendance for the six performances at more than 4,500. “It was way beyond our expectations,” he said. The American Legion will apply the proceeds to support its scholarship program for college bound students
in the Lakes Region and its baseball team. “We’re very happy with the results,” he said. “We had no idea what to expect, but with a few bills left to pay, we’re very, very happy. The returns will far exceed what we hoped. Our scholarship fund will be healthy for years to come.” Vachon acknowledged that the circus did not leave Memorial Field as it found it while insisting the legion and the circus would honor their agreement with the city to ensure that the grounds are restored to playing condition. “I don’t anticipate a problem,” he said. Vachon said that “our plan at this stage is to bring the circus back next year. It’s all in a good cause.” — Michael Kitch
DUST from page 2 ing about this for another week or two, at least,” Dewey said. She said meteorologists were still trying to get exact measures from satellite and radar to figure out how big the dust storm was and compare it with previous ones, but they estimate it was more than a mile high and more than 100 miles wide. “People who’ve lived here their whole lives, 30 or 40 years, are saying they’ve never seen a storm this large,” Dewey said. She said winds from separate thunderstorms in the eastern and southern
parts of the state collided somewhere between Phoenix and Tucson and combined with a severe lack of moisture to create the wall of dust. The storm also hit the Yuma area in southwestern Arizona, and far western Arizona. Haboobs only happen in Arizona, the Sahara desert and parts of the Middle East because of dry conditions and large amounts of sand, Dewey said. “It’s a pretty rare thing to be able to see,” she said. While some Arizonans revel in the strange weather, many were unlucky enough to be outside when the storm rolled in. They got blasted with dust that went up their noses, behind their contact lenses and in their mouths, leaving behind a gritty taste. Holly Ward, a spokeswoman at the Maricopa County Air Quality Department, said pollution levels skyrocketed. During the storm, the amount of particulate matter in the air reached 375 micrograms per cubic meter, more than double the level federal standards consider healthy. “You didn’t have to go far anywhere in the dust storm to feel the remnants of that dust in your throat and in your nose,” Ward said. “If someone already has breathing problems like asthma and bronchitis, this is an incredible health challenge and serious health threat for those folks.”
from preceding page arrived on scene to assist the family. “In these low-ceiling houses, the heat is intense,” Erickson said. Firefighters emerged from the home, soaked with perspiration, into the 90 degree heat of the afternoon. In addition to the heat, Erickson said he was concerned that his firefighters might still be tired from a large fire that consumed an apartment building in Lakeport. That fire was called in at 11:43 p.m. and Erickson said city firefighters were on scene until about 4 a.m. He said, “Our biggest issue now is getting the firefighters cooled off.”

45-year-old Wakefield pitches Red Sox to win over Jays BOSTON (AP) — Another Red Sox pitcher goes on the disabled list, and Tim Wakefield just keeps trotting out to the mound. The oldest active player in the majors — he’ll be 45 in less than a month — Wakefield earned his 198th career victory on Wednesday night, scattering nine hits over seven innings to lead Boston to a 6-4 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays. “He was pitching the best I’ve seen him so far,” said catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who chased three of Wakefield’s knucklers to the backstop for passed balls. “He’s definitely a guy that deserves to be in the rotation.” Jacoby Ellsbury and Kevin Youkilis had three extra-base hits apiece as the Red Sox won for the sixth time in seven games. Wakefield (5-3) allowed three runs, struck out seven and walked one, providing the team a boost as it tries to cobble together a rotation without Clay Buchholz, Jon Lester and Daisuke Matsuzaka. The longest-tenured member of the Red Sox, Wakefield started the season without a spot in the rotation but has made 20 appearances, including 11 starts, because of injuries to other Boston starters. The latest was Lester, who went on the DL before
Wednesday’s game, a day after leaving after four innings with a strained muscle in his back. The day before that, John Lackey lasted just 2 1-3 innings. “I know I had to go deep in the game tonight because the bullpen had been taxed lately,” Wakefield said. “As a starting pitcher, it’s something you take a lot of pride in.” The Red Sox said after the game that Lester had an MRI that confirmed a strained latissimus muscle; he will be re-evaluated after the All-Star break. Doctors also confirmed Buchholz’s strained lower back can be treated with rehabilitation. Ricky Romero (7-8) gave up six runs and nine hits in 4 1-3 innings for Toronto. He surrendered leadoff homers in the first two innings, to Ellsbury and Youkilis, and allowed five straight hits — three of them doubles — as Boston scored four times in the fourth inning. The game was delayed by rain with two outs in the top of the eighth inning, Boston leading 6-3 and Aaron Hill coming to bat. After a 40-minute delay, Dan Wheeler struck Hill out, then Jonathan Papelbon gave up one run in the ninth but earned his 19th save.
WOLFSBURG, Germany (AP)— The Americans can’t do things the easy way. Needing only a tie to avoid Brazil in the quarterfinals, the U.S. fell 2-1 to Sweden on Wednesday night, the team’s fourth loss since November and first ever in group play at the World Cup. “After, what I said to the team is, my glass is halffull,” U.S. coach Pia Sundhage said. “Even though we lost, we can come out as a winner if we take a different path. ... We really want to play in the final. But we have to play some great games, play some great teams. I really want us to embrace this process. I think the team will get stronger. That’s the plan. “It’s a little bit different for me to talk about the final,” she added. “That’s what it takes when we take a different road.” Lisa Dahlkvist converted a penalty and Nilla Fischer scored on a free kick for Sweden, which won Group C and will play Australia on Sunday in Augsburg. Abby Wambach got the U.S. back in the
game in the 67th minute with her first goal of the tournament, but as they have all year the Americans squandered too many other chances and now must Brazil on Sunday in Dresden. Brazil was the runner-up to the Americans at the last two Olympics and to Germany at the 2007 World Cup, and is led by five-time FIFA player of the year Marta. As the final whistle sounded, Sweden’s players rushed onto the field, gathered in a circle and did the dance that’s quickly becoming their tradition. They then took a victory lap around the field, delighting the many Swedish fans in the crowd of 23,468 who whistled and cheered. With German chancellor Angela Merkel watching with the Germany squad, Sweden put the U.S. on its heels early after Amy LePeilbet tripped Schelin in the box in the 14th minute to earn a penalty kick. Dahlkvist took the penalty, curling it into the left side of the net.
HATE from page 2 Dedmon and John Aaron Rice, both 18 are also accused of assaulting Anderson before he was run down. Both are charged with murder in Anderson’s death. “It was an intentional act and it was a hate crime,” the prosecutor said. Judge Ali Shamsiddeen increased Dedmon’s bail to $800,000 from $50,000 after he heard more details
about the hate crime allegations. Dedmon, who had looked ahead intently during the hearing, lowered his head when the higher bond was announced. He was put in handcuffs after the hearing and taken away as some people who accompanied him to court wiped away tears. “Dedmon murdered this victim because he was a black man,” Smith said. “We do have information that they were rejoicing after killing the victim.”

LACONIA — Mrs. Pauline Marie (Hebert) Rudzinski of Elm Street passed away on Tuesday, July 5, 2011 at the St. Francis Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Laconia with her family at her side. She was 86 years old. Mrs. Rudzinski was born February 10, 1925 in Franklin, N.H. to Leda Fugere Hebert. Due to her mother’s chronic illness, she went to live at St. Patrick’s Orphanage in Manchester, N.H. at the age of 7. She was very happy there and made life-long sister- like friends. She left the orphanage at the age of 16 and returned to Laconia to live with her sister, Frances. She worked for a time as a nanny and housekeeper for the Clyde Cantin family. She worked at Laconia Shoe Company for a brief time. In 1943, she met the love of her life, William “Bill” Rudzinski, Jr. and they married in 1945. She worked with her husband in his vending machine business until he retired in 1996. People may remember her from Bill’s Playland on the Boardwalk at Weirs Beach, working alongside her husband for 33 years (a family business). She spent the first 25 years of her marriage on the lake on Union Avenue where she and her husband raised their five children. She was a great mom and precious human being and loved dearly by most who met her. She enjoyed playing cards, trips to Las Vegas, bingo, puzzles, gardening, crocheting, tatting, the ocean, sitting on her back deck and most of all family gatherings and being a mom, gram and nani. She was a caring and sharing person who sent approximately two hundred Christmas cards with personal messages to family and friends each year and receiving as many. She was a parishioner of Our Lady of the Lakes Parish, a lifelong member of The Catholic Daughters of America and Emblem Club 80 of Laconia. She will be sadly missed but never forgotten by her very devoted family. She leaves behind her
beloved husband, Vincent William “Bill” Rudzinski, Jr, of 66 years; daughters, Sylvia Batchelder of Lakeport, Leda Rudzinski of Gilford, Stacia Larivee of Gilford, Paula DuBois and her husband, Bert, of Gilford; daughter-in-law, Veronica Rudzinski, of Belmont; granddaughters, Christina Batchelder, Danielle Minery, Pauline Doucette and her husband, Timothy, and Brandi DeGroot and her husband, Bill; grandsons, Jack Batchelder and his wife, Shelly, Victor Larivee Jr. and his wife, Jill, Vincent Rudzinski IV and Damien Rudzinski and his wife, Elizabeth; great granddaughters, Olivia Doucette, Autumn Minery, Samantha Batchelder and Cordelia Larivee-Ambrose; great grandsons, River Minery, Nathan Batchelder, Matthew Doucette, Colby Batchelder and William Rudzinski; her brother, Raymond Foster, and his wife, Claire, of Vermont and sister, Ruth Cormier, of Laconia and several nieces, nephews and cousins. She was predeceased by her son, Vincent “Bud” Rudzinski III, in 2010, grandson, Rodney Colby, in 1996, son-inlaw, Edward Batchelder in 2003, her sisters, Helen Labrie, Frances Binette, Lillian Ducharme and Rita Barton and brothers, Leon Foster and Eddy Hebert. Calling hours will be held on Friday, July 8, 2011 from 4:00-6:30 PM in the Carriage House of the Wilkinson-Beane-Simoneau-Paquette Funeral Home, 164 Pleasant Street, Laconia, N.H.

Francis will cover the basics and walk each attendee through the creation of a unique eNewsletter. A Facebook Business Page is what participants will create at the Wednesday, August 3 session. Again, this workshop is for those who have decided to add this social media tool to their marketing mix, but would like guidance navigating Facebook’s preferences and generating an enticing and engaging business page. In the last class, on Tuesday, August 23, attendees will create their own Blog using free blogging software. Francis will work with each participant to help develop a one-of-a kind informational blog. Participants should be prepared to arrive with pictures, text, and any important information they’d like to include in their Blog. This professional skills training conducted by PRCC is part of their active support of the regional businesses and is possible through the support of PSU, Northern Community Investment Corporation (NCIC), Notchnet, Inc. and was made possible in part with funding from a Rural Business Enterprise Grant from the USDA Rural Development. A link to register, including the $25 workshop fee, is available on the PRCC website: www. plymouthnh.org. Space is limited to only six participants for each class due to the one-on-one attention needed to create these materials, so early registration is encouraged.

Pooch Café LOLA
By Holiday Mathis hard to keep yourself from going for it. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A good lawyer does not present all of the information he has about his client during the opening statement. Likewise, you have the rapt attention of your “jury” as you take your time in revealing the truth. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There are too many people influencing you now. It will do you no good to want something just because others do. If you still don’t know what your true wants are, ask them to speak to you a little louder. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It has been said that any item of clothing can be attractive with a confi dent, passionate person inside it. However, it’s difficult to feel either confident or passionate if you hate what you’re wearing. Another reason to shop... AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You are in a competitive mood. The best competitor now is not a person, but the general idea that is the status quo. Go for mastery and excellence in all things. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your deepest craving is to be accepted and adored. Realizing that this is something you have in common with most humans, you lavish others with praise and they do the same for you. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 7). You’ll love the interaction this month as lively characters enter your world. Fun and unexpected travel precedes hard work during the highly productive month of September. You’ll express yourself in a safe environment and develop your gifts through October. November brings the payoff of a long-term investment. Libra and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 6, 25, 43 and 23.
by Darby Conley
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll get a sign that things are about to change for the better in a relationship. Perhaps this won’t come as a source of elation, but you will likely feel cheerful and optimistic about your future with the other person. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You often avoid strong emotions, but such intense feelings can be helpful at times. For instance, your anger can make you more powerful than a wild beast. Use your strong feelings judiciously. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). People will do annoying things that have nothing to do with you, so be sure not to take any of it personally. You may find their behavior irritating, but you’ll blow it off much quicker when you know it’s not really about you. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You want a change, and your desire for it is the ingredient that will make it happen. As you let your desire move you, it strengthens. The stronger your desire the faster the change will come about. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The more you expose people to your ideas the more they will like them. So keep making your pitch, telling your story and winning supporters one by one. You will soon go from being “an acquired taste” to having mainstream appeal. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). What appears to be an everyday encounter may seem stressful to you. Because of your particular sensitivities, you realize there is much more going on than most people would see. Try to relax and take it all in stride. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll persuade someone subtly and without being detected. Perhaps even you don’t realize that you are doing this. But when you want something so much, it’s

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Thursday, July 7, the 188th day of 2011. There are 177 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 7, 1981, President Ronald Reagan announced he was nominating Arizona Judge Sandra Day O’Connor to become the first female justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. On this date: In 1846, U.S. annexation of California was proclaimed at Monterey (mahn-tuh-RAY’) after the surrender of a Mexican garrison. In 1860, composer-conductor Gustav Mahler was born in Kalischt, Bohemia, Austria-Hungary (in the present-day Czech Republic). In 1865, four people were hanged in Washington, D.C., for conspiring with John Wilkes Booth to assassinate President Abraham Lincoln. In 1898, the United States annexed Hawaii. In 1911, composer Gian Carlo Menotti was born in Cadegliano, Italy. In 1919, the first Transcontinental Motor Convoy, in which a U.S. Army convoy of motorized vehicles crossed the United States, departed Washington, D.C. (The trip ended in San Francisco on Sept. 6, 1919.) In 1930, construction began on Boulder Dam (later Hoover Dam). In 1941, U.S. forces took up positions in Iceland, Trinidad and British Guiana to forestall any Nazi invasion, even though the United States had not yet entered the Second World War. In 1969, Canada’s House of Commons gave final approval to the Official Languages Act, making French equal to English throughout the national government. One year ago: President Barack Obama bypassed the Senate and appointed Dr. Donald Berwick to run Medicare and Medicaid. In Philadelphia, a disabled sightseeing “duck boat” adrift in the Delaware River was struck by a barge and capsized; two Hungarian tourists died. Today’s Birthdays: Musician-conductor Doc Severinsen is 84. Pulitzer Prize-winning author David McCullough is 78. Rock star Ringo Starr is 71. Singer-musician Warren Entner (The Grass Roots) is 68. Rock musician Jim Rodford is 66. Actor Joe Spano is 65. Pop singer David Hodo (The Village People) is 64. Country singer Linda Williams is 64. Actress Shelley Duvall is 62. Actress Roz Ryan is 60 Actor Billy Campbell is 52. Rock musician Mark White (Spin Doctors) is 49. Singer-songwriter Vonda Shepard is 48. Actor-comedian Jim Gaffigan is 45. Rhythm-and-blues musician Ricky Kinchen (Mint Condition) is 45. Actress Amy Carlson is 43. Actress Jorja Fox is 43. Actress Cree Summer is 42. Actress Kirsten Vangsness is 39. Actor Troy Garity is 38. Actor Hamish Linklater is 35. Olympic silver and bronze medal figure skater Michelle Kwan is 31.

Three unique art exhibits at the lakes gallery at chi-lin in Meredith opening July 9
MEREDITH — A mix of Asian antiques and contemporary art will provide the setting for three diverse art exhibits at the lakes gallery at chi-lin, with an artists reception to be held from 5 — 7 p.m. on Saturday, July 9. Jan Roy’s “Distant Places” immediately splits one’s sensibilities between walls of faded old Carolina tobacco barn boards and the warm patina of timeless mud walls in Morocco. “I approach each painting as though I’ve never painted before, like I’m meeting someone for the first time,” said the artist, and each visitor may share that special experience whether viewing a New England boathouse, a summer cabin rainy day kitchen or a Tuscan farm’s aura of a little kingdom. The colors of Roy’s oils are magically rich, and there is a quiet sense of intimacy in each work. “An Alchemy of Summer — A Flower & Calligraphy Garden” will transport visitors to the wonderful colors and sensations of a lakeside summer garden through the works of eight artists: Dianne Pfister, oils; Patricia Giebutouski, egg tempera; Leigh English watercolor & calligraphy; Aya Itagaki, Japanese calligraphy; Bruce Iverson, Chinese brush painting; Alec Richardson, oil on paper; Maryanne Grebenstein, Calligraphy; and Henrieke Strecker, archival pigment prints. Carmel Midili will offer a selection of his new work in recycled painted canvas. As he explained in an interview with Priscilla Gottwald last summer, “I

Edie Clark, author of ‘States of Grace,’ to appear at Innisfree Bookshop on July 12
MEREDITH — Innisfree Bookshop will welcome Edie Clark, author of “States of Grace,” who will make an appearance from 11a.m. — 2 p.m. on Tuesday, July 12. Clark has been a writer and editor of books and magazines for almost 40 years. She has written extensively about New England in award-winning feature stories for Yankee magazine, where she served as senior editor and fiction editor for more than 20 years. Her ongoing column for the magazine, “Mary’s Farm,” has been a popular feature of the magazine for many years. She also writes “The Best Cook in Town,” a regular feature for Yankee. Clark’s memoir, “The Place He Made,” which has recently been reissued, was described by the New York Times Book Review as “a triumph of the human spirit [which] may take its quiet place among the best of the literature.” In 2001, she collaborated with composer Lawrence Siegel to create “Monadnock Tales,” a fusion of music and poetry that has been performed several times in the Monadnock Region. Clark has been a fellow at the MacDowell Colony, Hedgebrook Writers Colony, and has been a visiting writer at Northern Michigan University. She is currently contributing editor to Yankee magazine and managing editor of The Northern New England Review. She has taught in the MFA program at Emerson College in Boston and now teaches journalism at UMass/Amherst. She is a featured speaker for the New Hampshire Humanities Council and gives frequent talks throughout New England. Clark’s other books include “The View from Mary’s Farm,” a collection of essays about her place in New Hampshire; “Saturday Beans and Sunday Suppers,” a food memoir with recipes from each decade; and her latest book, “States of Grace: Encounters with Real Yankees,” a collection of stories about ordinary people who lead extraordinary lives.

Summer Sundays special at little Union Church on Meredith Neck MEREDITH — Sporting a new metal shingle roof as it’s latest edition, the little Union Church on Meredith Neck Road has had a feisty past. Built in 1839 as a meeting house by a group of disgruntled Baptists, the site is deeded for a church as long as services are held there. Finding a barren ledge
of rock on the top of a hill upon which to build the church, it had to be anchored to an iron pin in the rock, which was then attached to a cable to prevent its blowing away during the winter months. With a dwindling Baptist congregation, in 1843 the building was turned over to the Advent
Church, so named by the baptisms that were conducted in nearby Advent Cove and enjoyed many years of vigorous activity. When the Adventist population dwindled, a group of Methodist ministers who were developing Pine Island took over the church and created the format that is followed today, which
includes a different speaker for each of the summer Sundays. The building was redesigned and remodeled in 1898, and again in 1954 when the steeple was added. The bell of the steeple had its beginnings on the Mt. Washington steamship and rang on the boat’s maiden voyage, used instead of a whistle

so as not to frighten the horses, which were once transported by the boat from port to port. When it was removed from the Mt. Washington, because it interfered with the oiling of some crucial machinery, the bell was put into storage. After the steamer burned in 1937, the bell was headed by truck to a junkyard in Portsmouth. When the truck driver stopped for gas in Alton, the owner of the gas station heard the story and bought the 175 lb brass bell on the spot. For many years, it was mounted in the service station window and rang for July 4th celebrations. In 1954, the Alton gas station owner, who knew of the Union Church in Meredith, donated the bell for the new steeple. Presently the bell continues to ring over the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee during the summer. This week’s service, Sunday, July 10, is open to all denominations, and beginning at 10 a.m., will feature Dr. Elizabeth Nordbeck from Wolfeboro as the minister. She will also perform special music during the service. Colette Fand from Meredith is the new church pianist for the summer.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, July 7, 2011— Page 25
Dear Annie: I work in a family business along with my parents, my brother and my sister. Two years ago, my brother’s wife and my sister’s husband also worked there, but they had an affair and moved away together. Three months later, they both returned to their spouses. Their marriages are reconciled, but they are not allowed back in the family business. I refuse to attend any event that includes the two of them. I am so upset about what they did to my family that I will not speak to either of them. The problem is, my sister is constantly telling me that I have to accept her husband and stop being so stubborn. I keep telling her what they did is not acceptable and I do not have to be around either one of them. What do you suggest? Am I wrong to feel this way? -- Confused Dear Confused: You are not wrong. Their behavior was reprehensible. However, avoiding family events where these in-laws will be present mostly hurts your sister and brother. They are having a hard enough time with their marriages. It surely is additional punishment to know the affair has also caused an estrangement with their sibling. Etiquette quite helpfully provides a solution. It’s called “snubbing.” Attend these family events, and be loving toward your sister and brother and aloof toward the miscreants. Your behavior will make your disapproval abundantly clear. Dear Annie: You advocate meeting people through volunteer organizations, local theater productions, choirs, political groups, book clubs, etc. Doing that can certainly keep a person busy, but it doesn’t always lead to meeting a potential romantic interest. I was widowed 20 years ago at the age of 49. I continue to be active in various civic organizations, political groups (I even ran for local office a couple of times.), my church, a weekly exercise group and the local senior center. Have I met anyone?
No, and I’ve just about given up and decided to adopt a cat to keep me company. -- S. Dear S.: While joining organizations can lead to romance, that should not be your main focus. The point is to be involved in activities that you enjoy and where you can meet others who share your interests. It’s a way to make friends and lead a full life. Romance would be a bonus. We don’t know why you haven’t been able to find what you are searching for, but if you have been helping your community and staying active, you haven’t been wasting your time. Dear Annie: I’m writing in response to the letter from “Trying To Keep the Peace,” who was criticized for posting information about her grandfather’s death on Facebook. She doesn’t mention how long she waited before putting that online. We recently had a similar situation. A relative passed away late in the evening, and due to the hour, the decision was made to wait until morning to notify family members. But one relative posted the information on their Facebook page that same evening, and several close family members were upset when they saw the posting before we had a chance to call. “Trying” defends the posting by saying that obituaries are published in the local newspaper, but this is done after those closest to the deceased have already been notified. Perhaps a good policy would be to delay posting a death notice on any website for, say, 12 to 24 hours out of respect for the family, allowing them to come to grips with their loss and gently inform their loved ones personally. It was heartbreaking enough to deal with our loss without also having to deal with the fallout from family members finding out about it online. -- Also Trying To Keep the Peace
