Steel sunflowers & copper chrysanthemums – sculptor converting scrap metal into floral art on Main Street this week BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — “Great! Parking meters!” exclaimed Elizabeth Meadows as Charlie Bullerwell of All My Life Jewelers handed her a cardboard box. “Time expired! I love

it!” A metal sculptor from Oberlin, Ohio, Meadows is spending the week in the city as an artist in residence sponsored by Melissa McCarthy of The Studio. In vacant space at 600 Main Street, once home to the Sun-

dial Shop, she is fashioning flowers from a diverse assortment of objects — from silver plated goblets to rusted clutch plates — that she and McCarthy will donate to the city to grace appropriate public spaces. see SCULPTOR page 6

3,460 miles in 47 days: Seeing the country from seats of a tandem bicycle BY MIKE MORTENSEN FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

It was a chance encounter with a group of bicyclists who had just finished a crosscountry trek 29 years ago that started Jeff Hollinger thinking how much fun such an adventure would be. But as it turned out it was Hollinger’s wife who took the decisive

step that turned the dream into a reality. Today Jeff and Roberta Hollinger bask in the experience of having pedaled a bicycle built for two 3,460 miles, from sea to shining sea. But more rewarding than completing such a feat was the opportunity to see the country at a leisurely pace and to get to know the people they met from Manhat-

tan Beach, Calif., outside Los Angeles, to Revere Beach, Mass., and all the places in between. “I thought that would be the neatest thing to do,” Jeff Hollinger said, recalling how he met the group of middle-age bike enthusiasts at the base of Mount Kearsarge see TANDEM page 8

Swine flu outbreak linked to pig contact

ATLANTA (AP) — Don’t pet the pigs. That’s the message state and county fair visitors got Thursday from health officials who reported a five-fold increase of cases of a new strain of swine flu that spreads from pigs to people. Most of the cases are linked to the fairs, where visitors are in close contact with infected pigs. This flu has mild symptoms and it’s not really spreading from person to person. “This is not a pandemic situation,” said Dr. Joseph Bresee of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But any flu can be a risk for some people, and people should be cautious when they can, he added. The case count jumped from 29 a week ago to 158 this week, thanks to a wave of new cases in Indiana and Ohio, said Bresee, the agency’s chief of influenza epidemiology. Most of the infected patients are children — probably because many were working closely with raising, displaying and visiting pigs at the agricultural fairs, Bresee said.

China official’s wife doesn’t deny killing Briton HEFEI, China (AP) — Testimony in China’s most closely watched murder case in decades wrapped up within hours on Thursday as the wife of disgraced politician Bo Xilai stood accused of luring a British businessman to a hotel, getting him drunk and pouring poison into his mouth. No verdict or sentence was immediately announced for Gu Kailai, who was tried with a household aide in the death of close family associate Neil Heywood. The defendants did not contest the murder charges. A guilty verdict is all but assured and could carry a death sentence. The tightly orchestrated court proceeding marks a step toward resolving the messiest scandal the Communist leadership has faced in two decades.

Bo was one of China’s most powerful and charismatic politicians until he was ousted in the spring as the scandal surrounding Heywood’s death unfolded. Observers say the party’s main objective is to keep the focus tightly on the murder case and not on larger allegations of corruption that could further taint the regime. International media were barred from the trial at the Intermediate People’s Court in the eastern Chinese city of Hefei. Details of the case against Gu were provided afterward by Tang Yigan, the court’s deputy director. He said prosecutors told the court that Gu sent her aide, Zhang Xiaojun, to meet and accompany Heywood from Beijing to the southern megacity of Chongqing,

where Bo was the Communist Party boss. Gu and Heywood were business associates but had a dispute over economic interests, according to Tang, whose account matched details from the indictment reported in official media several weeks ago. Gu thought Heywood was a threat to her 24-year-old son, Bo Guagua, and decided to have him killed, said Tang, who did not specify what sort of threat Heywood posed to the son, a recent Harvard graduate. On the night of Nov. 13, Gu went to Heywood’s hotel and drank alcohol and tea with him. “When Heywood was drunk and vomited and wanted to drink water, she then see GU page 14

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, was recovering from heart surgery, days after his 82nd birthday. A NASA spokesman talked to Armstrong’s wife, Carol, on Wednesday and said only that he was recovering. Armstrong’s birthday was Sunday. It wasn’t clear where the surgery occurred or where the former astronaut was recuperating. NASA Administrator Charles Bolden wished Armstrong a quick recovery from cardiac bypass surgery in a Facebook statement.

“Neil’s pioneering spirit will surely serve him well in this challenging time and the entire NASA Family is holding the Armstrong family in our thoughts and prayers,” the statement said. Armstrong commanded the Apollo 11 spacecraft that landed on the moon on July 20, 1969, and he radioed back to Earth the historic news of “one giant leap for mankind.” He spent nearly three hours walking on the moon with fellow astronaut Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin. A message Wednesday on Aldrin’s Twitter account also wished Armstrong well. Armstrong and his wife married in 1999

and made their home in the Cincinnati suburb of Indian Hill, but he has largely stayed out of public view in recent years. He spoke at Ohio State University during a February event honoring fellow astronaut John Glenn and the 50th anniversary of Glenn becoming the first American to orbit the Earth. In May, Armstrong joined Gene Cernan, the last man to walk on the moon, at Pensacola Naval Air Station in Florida to support the opening of The National Flight Academy, which aims to teach math and science to kids through an aviation-oriented camp.

Will money decide the election? News alert: Mitt Romney is raising a lot of money. A whole lot. So much that in the past three months, he’s been out-raising the incumbent president, which is no easy feat. So much that the chattering class is beginning to wonder whether the president’s team has been spending too much too early, as opposed to saving it for later. What does all this mean? Less than you might think. As in life, given a choice between having more money and having less, there’s hardly a person (apologies to those who take vows of poverty) who would not opt for more. The same is true of campaigns and campaign managers. But as we all know, the road is littered with miserable rich people and, more to the point, with wellfunded and self-funded campaigns that have failed, sometimes rather miserably in the end. How do you spell Ross Perot? Money doesn’t buy success, although it certainly can make the trip easier. And in politics, the fact is that money matters most when that’s the only way to get attention. Free media versus paid media, we used to call it. These days, no matter how much money you have, there is more free media out there than paid media. And nowhere is that more true than in a presidential campaign. Try as you might, in the coming months, you simply are not going to be able to avoid this presidential choice. Once the Olympics are over, watch out. True, the days of gavelto-gavel coverage of conventions on the broadcast networks are long gone (along with any vestiges of suspense). But between the 24-hour cable networks, the blogs and the cut-ins even on your favorite shows, you’ll be seeing it and hearing it. And yes, just as most of us will tune in for the seventh game of the World Series whether or not we care about either of the teams or even the sport itself, so will we tune in to watch the World Series of politics, which is to say the presidential debates. A gaffe during one of those — say, looking at your watch, the way George Bush the First did, or dispassionately opposing the death penalty for a man

who (hypothetically) raped and killed your beloved wife (that was my candidate, who graciously apologized to me on the stage the second the debate was over) — counts for more than millions and millions of dollars and that many ads. A knockout — “There you go again,” said Ronald Reagan — means more than anything you can buy. I don’t mean to suggest for a minute that there haven’t been particular ads that have dramatically affected a presidential contest. The “independently financed” ads denouncing John Kerry’s military record and his antiwar activities (“the Swift Boat ads”) absolutely mattered. But the amount spent on those ads was your proverbial drop in the bucket compared to all the other stuff the candidates put on in that race, none of which any of us can remember. Consider this: The 2004 campaign was one in which Kerry, the challenger, out-raised George W. Bush, the incumbent president. Need I remind you who won? I can cite you chapter and verse about races that literally came out “wrong,” and I don’t just mean because the candidate I favored lost. I mean races where people literally didn’t know who they were voting for, where they elected somebody because his name was John Kennedy, or voted out a highly competent judge with a funny foreign-sounding name in favor of a bagel shop owner with a lapsed bar card. But those tend to be low-profile races. The farther up the ticket you go the more voters tend to know exactly who they’re voting for. The striking thing about presidential races, as important as the money and the handlers and the ads are, is how transparent they end up being. So give Romney credit for raising all this money? Sure. Worry about an enthusiasm gap for the president? Why not? The chattering class needs something to chatter about. But will money decide this election? No. (Susan Estrich is a professor of Law and Political Science at the University of Southern California Law Center. A best-selling author, lawyer and politician, as well as a teacher, she first gained national prominence as national campaign manager for Dukakis for President in 1988.)

Democratic Party (with Obama leading) wants to punish success To the editor, We have had a presidential polarization for nearly four years. And the results of the November Election will leave scars for both political parties. If there are enough pro-abortion, pro-gay agenda, pro-entitlement, propunish success , government school education only, support illegal entry into our country Obama supporters — oops, I forgot free-loaders are good citizens — Obama should win a second term. When some of the letter writers, or radio

talk show listeners, tear into Republicans, I note they have nothing, that is nothing, to brag about Obama. Republican candidates who dance around my questions are met with “that look” that says, answer the damn question! I have no respect for the Democratic Party because they (Obama leads) wish to punish success, and can be down right mean. So those of you who are voting for socialism and killing this country for my grandchildren, please tell us why? Niel Young Laconia

LETTERS Job creators won’t create jobs if Obama continues to tax them To the editor, Quite a dust up over Chick-fil-A head about his statement of being against same sex marriage. It’s a Christian owned and run franchise so what’s the surprise? I really have to laugh a little at the left’s reaction. It wasn’t that long ago when they ended every debate with the pleading voiced words of “Who are we to judge, what gives us the right, are we the worlds policeman?” And please don’t tell me, “this is different”, because it’s not. The left is making a judgment of others, which is their right and only exposes how really really dumb that often whinnied question was to begin with. Readers should also note just how liberal the left really is when it comes to tolerance of free speech. Anything goes as long as it is approved by the liberal thought police. I’d really like to discuss some of Obama’s achievements rather then the side shows the main stream media wants to distract us with. Let’s start with the ol’ unemployment numbers. Still over 8-percent after 42 months of Obama. That’s only 58.1-percent of our population working, lowest level since 1983. As a result food stamps spending is up to around $75-billion. And the president’s plan to deal with this, raise taxes and not just on the rich. Income tax top rate will go from 37.4% up to 52.2-percent ( guaranteed to keep hiring down), capital gains tax from 15-percent up to 28-percent, dividends from 15-percent up to 39.6-percent and estate tax from 0-percent to 55-percent. Oh yes and the national debt is coming up on $16-trillion. How great is that? And before the left once tries to blame Bush, let us remember that Obama was elected to FIX the problems. You know I just think it would be a lot better for people if there were actually real jobs with real opportunity’s for advancement so working people

didn’t have to depend on unemployment, welfare and food stamps. Unfortunately as long as Obama continues to tax the job creators, those people will not create jobs, at least not in the US. General Electric has announced they are relocating to China and they didn’t pay even one cent in taxes last year even after making $5-billion in profits. I know, I know the left wants to keep blaming the greedy corporations and CEO’s but how about the greedy federal government? Can anyone say they are blameless? Obama promised he was going to fix the problem with the system but it turns out he is the problem, nothing changed, nothing got fixed. He had two years of complete control of Congress and still nothing is different. Seems four more years of nothing is what we get if he is re-elected. These are just a few, a partial list of the things I have against Obama, as Nancy Parsons asked a while back. Folks like Nancy keep trying to bring up race as a reason why I and other conservatives are against Obama. Not true, we were against the same things when John Kerry ran and when Al Gore ran and we never heard the cries of racism then. So it is obvious that Nancy and her fellows just want it to be race based probably because they have a hard time defending Obama’s record of dubious achievements. So far the Obama camp has conducted a campaign of class warfare, lies, disinformation and studiously avoided the president’s record. Time for readers to look the issues square In the face and recognize this president is a complete failure. So if your happy the way things are vote for more of the same but if you want better for yourselves and your children vote for change, real change in November. Steve Earle Hill

How much have we benefitted from the billions in foreign aid? To the editor, I want a president who will stop the give away called foreign aid, which totaled $53.3-billion in 2012. How have we benefited from this big give away? That money should be used to help Americans at home who are in need!

Who is willing to make the commitment to end this billion dollar giveaway? Tell Hilliary Clinton to come back home with her foreign aid checkbook, the give away is over! Bill Whalen Sanbornton

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, August 10, 2012 — Page 5

LETTERS Trashing the Affordable Care Act will put us back in dark ages To the editor, The new Affordable Care Act speaks directly to the well being of our society, especially to women’s health. In the past, new medicines were tested only on men and doctors had to make their own deductions as to how to prescribe these to women, if given at all. Women were charged higher insurance premium because they just might have a baby. That is complicated for the male insurance underwriters! In many insurance policies, women were excluded because the potential of having a baby was a preexisting condition! The massive number of bills in statehouses across the land and in our national Congress to control women’s reproductive rights, indicate how threatening this issue is to the white male population. The patient/doctor relationship should be beyond any reach of the law. Such laws are wrong. They are an unmitigated invasion of privacy. Sadly, for our society, some male chauvinists still believe that a woman’s place is in the kitchen, barefoot and pregnant! This is the Twenty-first Century. Women rightfully want to have a choice of how they invest their lives in careers, marriage and motherhood. The link here is, if women cannot control the quality of their health care and reproductive capacity, then they are much less likely to be a competitor in the economic field. This potential

competition is another source of great angst on the part of some males. Most couples have found that it take two pay checks to support a family. So why don’t we have better laws that help all citizens to develop their maximum potential? The Affordable Care Act (a.k.a., Obamacare) is providing access to health care that speak to the gross neglect we have been practicing for too long. The United States is the only major industrial country that has not had national health care. Nationwide, nearly 13-million uninsured women of reproductive age will soon be able to get insurance coverage they can afford — and the health care they need and deserve. Women won’t be penalized for preexisting conditions or charged more just because they are female. The Affordable Care Act is so much more than birth control pills, it covers preventative exams for cancer screening and other medical conditions as well as annual check ups. Young adults may stay until they are 27 on their parent’s policies. There are many other advantages. Willard Romney will put us back into the dark ages. He has promised that he will trash this act the first day he is in office. We can’t let him near the White House! Be sure to vote for President Obama. David B. Hart Laconia

I’m pleading for our local banks to help in this charitable effort To the editor, I have debated writing this letter for a few days now and when I saw the headline in today’s paper about another bank donating large sums of money to yet another one of the Lakes Region’s worthy causes; I felt it was time to write. I recently read an article in which an 11-year-old girl lost her prosthetic eye when she went swimming at the trestle in Laconia. Due to circumstances beyond her own control, she may not be able to get another. I was so saddened to hear this, I wanted to do something. While I plan on donating to the fundraiser dinner being held on Saturday, August 11, at the Elks Lodge (unfortunately, I cannot attend), I doubt the fundraiser will be able to raise the approximate $10,000 needed to get her

a new eye. Therefore, and the reason for this letter, is to ask our local banks to again look into their pockets and see if they can come together to be able to give this little girl her eye back. As a mother of three children, I am all too well aware of how children’s looks can have an adverse affect on them. I cannot imagine that in three short weeks, this young, beautiful 11-year-old 5th grader has to start school with only one eye. So please Bank of New Hampshire; Meredith Village Savings Bank; Franklin Savings Bank; Citizen’s Bank; TB Bank — join forces and get this little girl an eye! I am not sure, but maybe our local hospital LRGHealthcare can come up with something too. Delana Cullen Laconia

Romney released the same amount of tax returns as Bill Clinton To the editor, “Unnamed confidential sources have told me that Senator Harry Reid has an undisclosed bank account where he keeps all of the bribes that he has collected. When Harry Reid became a U.S. Senator he had virtually no assets so taking bribes is the only way to explain the fact that he is one of the richest U.S. senators, worth $14 - $18-billion today. Harry, how do you explain this if you didn’t take any bribes? The word is out Harry, so just show us your bank accounts and prove that you didn’t take any bribes.” That sounds as believable as Harry’s rant against Mitt Romney. The fact of the matter is that Harry has become one of Obama’s lap dogs chasing a Frisbee trying to distract every-

body’s attention from the fact that the economy is very lethargic. All the liberals drinking the Obama Kool-Aid are all crying for Romney to release more of his tax returns, hoping to make Mitt look like a rich man that is out of touch. Why is it that Romney has released two years worth of tax returns and Obama only released one year prior to being elected president? Does anyone know that the left’s beloved Jimmy Carter only released one years worth of tax returns, which is the same amount released by Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush. Mitt has released the same amount of tax returns as Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, which is the same amount released by Richard Nixon and JFK.

Gilford police had previous, similar contact with man charged with threatening

“Our 39th Year”

By Gail OBer

GILFORD — In 2010, Bernard O. Huard, the man charged Tuesday with four misdemeanor counts of criminal threatening for threatening to shoot a Laconia police detective and the Laconia city prosecutor, allegedly had a rifle in his lap when he went to a local doctor’s office to pick up a prescription. The incident was described in documents released to the Daily Sun in response to a right-to-know request. Huard, now 54, was not charged with any crime but documents made available by the Gilford Police noted that Huard had called Laconia Cardiology on September 9, 2010 for a prescription telling them he could “cut off his feet” if he didn’t get it. Laconia Cardioloy on Hounsell Avenue is the same place Huard allegedly called on Tuesday and allegedly made his first threat against the police detective and city prosecutor. He went to the office later in the day

and the employee who brought the prescription out to Huard, who sat in his truck, said he had what appeared to be a .22 caliber rifle in his lap. She told police Huard never brandished the rifle or threatened anyone. Police responded but Huard had left the property. They escorted the medical practice staff to their cars. Officers located Huard in his thenhome on Liscomb Circle and after a while is said to have admitted to police he had the rifle in question in his house. He gave the gun to them telling them he had gone shooting at Camp Winsheblo earlier in the day and still had it with him when he went to the doctor’s office to pick up his prescription. He assured police he had no intention of intimidating, hurting or scaring anyone. Police asked if he had any other weapons and Huard gave them permission to take for safe keeping a rifle, a shotgun and a cross-bow pistol. The weapons were returned to Huard when police decided not to pursue any charges.

SCULPTOR from page one Tall and lean with flashing eyes and a broad smile, Meadows bubbles with seemingly boundless energy. Raised in Cleveland, she said that she and her brother were labeled as “high IQ,

ADHD” and placed in the “major works program” of the public school system, where they began French in second grade, pursued accelerated math and reading regimens and played music. “I see next page

from preceding page I have also just heard a former Libertarian VP candidate say that he has evidence that Obama surrendered his U.S. Citizenship in order to attend grade school in Indonesia and there is speculation that he attended Occidental and Columbia Universities as a foreign exchange student in order to receive special grants to pay his tuition. More on that as I get better verified information but Obama can put this to rest by releasing his college applications and records. It is easy to see that Obama’s plan is to make Mitt look like an evil monster who is out of touch with the American People. The left is constantly trying to show Romney as being an outsourcer of American Jobs when the fact of the matter is that Obama has provided stimulus funds that were supposed to create American Jobs to companies creating jobs in Mexico, Brazil, China and Norway. The left wants to show Romney as someone who will raise taxes on the Middle Class when Obama’s signature legislation, Obamacare has 22 new taxes, with seven that only tax the Middle Class, eight that tax everyone and seven that tax businesses and insurance companies. For those people not paying attention you might think the economy isn’t all that bad because the unemployment rate is 8.3-percent right now and Obama has created over 4-million jobs. This is another bait and switch game that the government does to make the numbers not look so bad and it has been going on for a couple of decades. The percentage reported is the percentage of people who are currently unemployed, receiving benefits and actively looking for work. July’s numbers were reported at 163 thousand jobs created with the rate going

up 0.1-percent but what they don’t advertise is that 150 thousand people were removed from the rolls because they are either underemployed (only have a part time job), their benefits expired or they simply gave up trying to find a job. There are over 12-million fewer jobs than there were when Obama was sworn into office. I would rather have someone like Romney who will reduce taxes for EVERYONE and create jobs so the Middle Class can afford to live. The left just doesn’t understand the simple economic fact that money needs to be invested in businesses to allow them to grow and investment money will follow the path of least taxation. Investors and business owners are the people that are taking the risk that they will earn a return on their investment. Areas with high regulatory costs and taxation increase the risk that they will lose their investment. To put it simply would you rather invest in something that has a 20-percent chance of success or a 70-percent chance of success? Or do you prefer investing like Obama does, provide other peoples (taxpayers) money to a business that is preparing to file for bankruptcy? The American people want the facts on the issues they are dealing with on a day to day basis. They want to know they can earn a wage that they can afford to live on. The more the left tries to paint Romney as a monster the harder it will be to win. Obama is taking his playbook from Jimmy Carter. Carter couldn’t run on his record because it was so bad and spent the entire campaign painting Reagan as and evil monster. We all remember how that campaign ended, don’t we?

from preceding page played string bass, sang madrigals in a choir,” she recalled, “and I still know every Christmas carol ever written.” She graduated from Carnegie Mellon University and studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts at Aix-en-Provence as well as joined the Boilermakers Union to master welding in Oakland, California and apprenticed to a blacksmith in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Meadows said that she drove to Laconia in her 2000 Subaru filled with metalworking and welding gear and topped with two rusty mattress springs and several brazing rods strapped to the roof. After arriving on Monday, she began asking people for the scrap metal to sculpt into flowers. Soon she had collected an array of car parts, license plates, mixing bowls, stove burners, silver goblets, an I-beam and much more, including a batch of leather soles and heels from LaBelle’s Shoe Repair, which she had placed around a metal plate. “I went to Edward Jones, the financial advisors next door to tell them there might be some noise,” she said, “and when I asked if they had any metal, they gave me their sign.” “I arrange the pieces on the floor, “ Meadows explained, stepping carefully around them, “and watch them, thinking how can I make them into flowers. Then I’ll set them up and play with them.” Her flowers range from enameled miniatures the size of dimes to towering blossoms of various

shapes made from steel, silver copper and brass. “I don’t like making two of anything exactly alike,” she said, “and whether it’s considered high art doesn’t really matter to me.” A sampling of Meadows work can be found on her website, When she isn’t prowling through scrap yards or brandishing a welding torch, Meadows helps her husband, a stonecarver, manage his business, Fairplay Stonecarvers, which has completed commissions for most of the major cathedrals in England, including Westminister Abbey and St. Paul’s, teaches art to children and raising her three sons. “I’ve learned to sleep,” she laughed. “But, when I grow up I’m going to buy a string bass. No jazz. I can’t improvise,” she confessed. “I’ll play only classical music.” McCarthy and Meadows met at an artists’ workshop in Bennington, Vermont in January. Meadows recalled “she asked me ‘would you do an art residency in Laconia, New Hampshire?’ and I said sure.” McCarthy said that on seeing Meadows’s work “I thought it was something Laconia needed. It was something that took only me to say please and some to say yes,” she remarked, explaining that she covered travel expenses and some materials as well as provided a place to stay. John Moriarty, one of the partners in the development of 600 Main Street, provided space for Meadows see next page

St. Clair recovering from surgery after colliding with deer in Nebraska KEARNEY, Nebraska — Charlie St. Clair, executive director of the Laconia Motorcycle Week Association who was injured when the motorcycle he was riding struck a deer on a lonely stretch of road ten miles north of Newport, Nebraska last week, has begun to recover from successful surgery. Jennifer Andersen, his assistant at the association, said yesterday that his left knee and tibia and right hand, which were shattered in the collision, were reconstructed with pins and plates on Tuesday. She said that his

leg is in traction and he remains heavily medicated for severe pain. St. Clair was riding to the annual rally in Sturgis, South Dakota when the accident occurred. He had hoped to recover sufficiently to make his way to the event, which he has attend every year but one since 1976, but Andersen said that keeping his string intact was out of the question. She indicated that he may need to undergo some rehabilitation in Nebraska before he can make the journey home to Laconia. — Michael Kitch

Republican candidates for state house view Northern Pass as eminent domain issue BY GAIL OBER

BELMONT — The Northern Pass was one of the hot topics for the candidates for two of the three Belknap County state senate districts who spoke at Wednesday night’s Republican candidate’s night at the Top of the Town Restaurant. In District 7, which covers Laconia, Belmont, Gilford, Northfield and Franklin as well as a number of other communities to the south and west of Franklin, there are two candidates for the GOP nod to be the person who will face Democrat Andrew Hosmer of Gilford. William “Bill” Grimm is from Franklin - the local community that stands to benefit the most from

the Northern Pass through increased revenue from property taxes and some much-needed jobs in the city of 7,000. Grimm said he had looked at the project carefully and his understanding is that the proposed 180 miles of electrical transmission lines running from Pittsfield to Deerfield would effect the cost of energy for all New Hampshire residents. “It is a tremendous boon to Franklin,” he said. But, said Grimm, he is not comfortable with any private company taking private land by eminent domain - one of the key points of contention being argued by those who are against the project. He said he doesn’t believe it’s legal to use eminent domain and would not support its use, but the proj-

ect as a whole should be carefully considered. Radio talk show host Niel Young spoke for Grimm’s opponent Josh Youssef who could not attend Wednesday’s forum due to a prior family commitment. “I don’t trust public service,” Young said noting that he would only endorse a candidate who sees the issues at hand the way he does. “Josh Youssef will say no to Northern Pass,” he said. He said Franklin’s jobs will only last two years and Grimm’s position supports Franklin but “screws the rest of us.” District 6 candidates Sam Cataldo of Farmington and Richard “Dick” Green of Rochester are vying see next page

from preceding page Regional School District. As time progressed they raised their sights to bigger challenges. Three years ago Jeff and Roberta took their tandem bike to Italy for a 500 mile tour through Tuscany. This time Hollingers were part of a group of 22 people, aged 48 to 70, who made the tour organized by Crossroads Tours, which plans the itinerary, provides detailed information about the route and points of interest along the way, handles hotel reservations, and takes care of the logistics. “All we needed to do was to make sure that we made it to our next destination at the end of the day,” Jeff said. Their longest one-day ride this summer was 119 miles across the Mojave Dessert. The shortest was 39 miles, which as it turned out was the most grueling because the 35 mph headwinds doubled the amount of time it took to cover the distance, Jeff explained. Roberta kept the family and friends posted on their progress by regular entries and photographs she posted on her blog. In one entry she explained that for a couple on a tandem bicycle communication is key “Clearly we

began this journey with a solid set of communications skills in place,” she wrote. “However, to be honest each day offers another opportunity to work on those skills. Tension can be high. There have been bits and pieces of the ride when silence was the better option,” added Roberta, a retired kindergarten teacher who now teaches Zumba and serves as religious education director at her church. Her husband concurs on the importance of communication. He sat in the front seat, so part of his job was to tell his wife of bumps in the road ahead so she could brace herself for the jolt. Meanwhile, as the person in the back seat, Roberta was the one whose job it was to tell her husband about traffic behind them and give information about the passing scenery. “If you’re both control freaks it probably wouldn’t work. We had to work together to be successful,” Jeff said. “It’s easy to be miserable. But we needed to look out for each other.” But Jeff noted that once the trip began the greatest source of excitement was not the ride itself but seeing the diverse beauty of the country – from desert sands of the Mojave, to Kansas farmlands

that stretched as far as the eye could see, or the phenomenal rock outcrops the Painted Desert of Arizona. But even more incredible was the friendships they made with the people they rode with and those they met along the way. Jeff recalled how a motel desk clerk in Liberal, Kans., offered to turn over her car keys to the group so they could use her car to run some errands. When the group demurred, the clerk drove them herself once she got off work. “If you’re ever feeling discouraged about humanity,” Jeff said, “this would rebuild your confidence in mankind.” And Jeff acknowledged that as the head of a company with 100 employees that without the support from his colleagues at Eptam his dream of such an adventure could not have come true. The biggest lesson Jeff learned through 6½ weeks spent crossing the country, he said, was not so much about what he and Roberta accomplished, but what it taught him about the human spirit to embrace challenges. “People should be willing to take the risk (to try something new) and do it,” he said.

Texas Smoke Shop BBQ looks to gain permanent status for Weirs business By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

House, said he is the clerk of the House Committee on Science, Technology “and we killed that bill.” He said in 2006 he worked to pass a constitutional amendment regarding eminent domain and that he would “lay on the ground so they don’t bulldoze these people’s houses.” Green, the former mayor of Rochester, said the

Northern Pass question was about property rights. He said he supports bringing energy to the state but will not condone the use of eminent domain to do it. “Public Service (of N.H.) is not a public company. It is a private company but is regulated by the public,” he said. Speaking at Wednesday’s forum was limited to only those candidates who were in contested raced for the party nomination.

Belknap County 4H Fair adds midway, opens tonight By Gail OBer


BELMONT — The midway at the annual Belknap County 4H Fair is back and will be open tonight and Friday evenings. According to organizer Fran Wendelboe, it’s been a number of years since the fair sponsored a midway - or an area filled with carnival rides. She said the price of admission is $12 for tonight and Friday night,the midway is open from 5 to 9 p.m. and admission pays for four hours of rides. On Saturday and Sunday, the rides are included in the price of general admissions. Other new additions this year for the fair that Wendelboe Workers from East Coast Midways of Maine work to set up the midway for this weekend’s Belknap describes as a “tradiCounty 4H Fair. (Laconia Daily Sun photo/Gail Ober) tional county fair centered on animals and agriculture” are five sets of the areas designated for the garden tractor pulls, bleachers for some of the animal exhibits - including the draft horse show and the dressage event. the oxen pulls. Wendelboe said the Monadnock Bluegrass Band is Bleachers for spectators have also been added at see next page from preceding page over the issues he’s had to deal with. ‘’We’ve got our Rooms and Meals tax permit and a special events permit, but the state won’t let us have a permanent permit. We recently had a state inspection and they let us reopen, for only four days a month. We’re appealing that and hope to get approval to open on a regular basis,’’ says Bell. ‘’We love it here and would like to stay here and do business year-round’’ says Bell, a 1992 graduate of Gilford High School, who would like to move back to New Hampshire permanently. But a state official says that Bell’s operation needs to comply with state standards to get a license and

that his plan was rejected for a number of reasons. John Seiferth, supervisor of the food sanitation section of the Food Protection Section of the Divison of Public Health Services says that state law allows food vendors to operate at special events such as fairs and Bike Week for up to 14 days without having to obtain a license from the state. ‘’But if you want to operate on more than an occasional basis after that you have to meet the standards,’’ says Seiferth, who recently conducted an inspection of Bell’s operations and cited a number of changes which would have to be made. Bell says that the issues appear to be structurally

Hepatitis C outbreak declared public health incident CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services says a public health incident has been declared in the state in response to the hepatitis C outbreak caused by a former lab worker. Officials say the declaration will allow the department to seek outside assistance for clinics that will be held to test more people for the disease. David Kwiatkowski (quit-COW’-skee) was charged

last month with stealing drugs from Exeter Hospital’s cardiac lab and contaminating syringes that were used on patients. So far, 32 people have been infected with the disease. After initially asking only cardiac lab patients to get tested, the state now recommends that some 3,300 people who underwent surgery or were admitted to the intensive care unit during Kwiatkowski’s employment. Testing clinics start on Friday.

Motorcyclist Sean McAfee snapped a photo of the mistake before it could be cleaned up and submitted it to the Tribune-Democrat of Johnstown (http://bit. ly/MkHa1K). He says he almost crashed, he was laughing so hard. PennDOT spokesman John Ambrosini says paint crews usually have a foreman on the job who clears away any dead animals before the paint-spraying truck equipment passes by. This crew didn’t have a foreman and the equipment was too big to turn around in traffic, remove the animal and repair the paint. He says “the squirrelly geometry” of the narrow road didn’t help. But the crew did try to stop the paint gun.

Carli Lloyd scores twice as US tops Japan to take women’s soccer gold WEMBLEY, England (AP) — Abby Wambach didn’t put on her “Greatness Has Been Found” T-shirt right away. She instead strayed from her teammates and knelt alone at midfield — and cried into a U.S. flag. Yes, greatness has been found. And payback has been achieved. The Americans are again on top of the women’s soccer world. The United States won its third straight Olympic gold medal Thursday, beating Japan 2-1 in a rematch of last year’s World Cup final and avenging the most painful loss in its history. “They snatched our dream last summer,” U.S. midfielder Megan Rapinoe said. “And this kind of feels like the nightmare turned back around.” Carli Lloyd scored early in both halves, Hope Solo made a lunging late save as the Japanese pushed frantically for a tying goal, and the entire roster found the redemption it had been seeking since that penalty kick shootout loss in Germany last year. “We came so close to winning the World Cup,” Wambach said. “We knew if we put our energy and belief in each other into this year, we could pull off something special.” Before 80,203 fans at Wembley Stadium, an Olympic record for a women’s soccer game, the teams put on a back-and-forth, don’t-turn-your-head soccer showcase, proving again that these are the two premier teams in the world. Women’s soccer is still in its formative stages in Britain, but the match proved more than worthy for the hallowed grounds of the beautiful game. Back home, America was paying attention — just as it was last year and despite all the other Olympic events. Even President Barack Obama, while visiting the U.S. Olympic Committee’s training center in Colorado Springs, Colo., offered a “special shout-out” to the women’s team for its victory.

At the final whistle, there was a group-hug celebration that unleashed a year of bottled-up frustration. Many of the players paraded with the flag and put on the celebratory T-shirts. Solo was at center of the biggest scrum, fitting for a player who was so crucial to the victory. The goalie gets a lot of flak for her off-field pursuits — including “Dancing With the Stars” and her candid comments on Twitter — but she made several plays Thursday that showed again that she’s the best in the world at what she does. “Hope Solo, she says a lot on Twitter, I guess. I don’t follow her,” U.S. coach Pia Sundhage said. “But what matters is what kind of team player she is and how she performs. ... Today Hope Solo had a very good game. She brought the gold back to the United States of America.” Wambach, the outspoken co-captain who missed the Beijing Games with a broken leg, was always the player most impassioned about the mission to get the Americans back atop the podium. She had spoken of “nightmares” from the Japan defeat, and now they’ve been replaced by tears of happiness. The loudest cheers erupted when she received her gold medal, and she was the only one to get a hug from American IOC member Angela Ruggiero, who put the medal around Wambach’s neck. “The Olympics is a perfect platform in terms of what life is,” Wambach said. “You cannot win at everything you attempt in life. You have to be willing to fail and fall flat on your face in order to get glory. And we really did fail last year, in our opinion. We have to give Japan credit. They’re a fantastic team. “But anything less than winning for us is a failure. And we worked tirelessly all year long to prove that we still can win and we are still champions.”

GU from page 2 took pre-prepared poison that she had asked Zhang Xiaojun to carry, and poured it into Heywood’s mouth, killing him,” Tang said. Heywood’s friends and family have said he was never a heavy drinker, and they rejected investigators’ initial conclusion that he drank himself to death. His body was cremated and no autopsy was performed. Tang said the prosecutors believed the facts of the crime were clear and the evidence sufficient, and that “Gu Kailai is the main culprit and Zhang is the accomplice.” Before Thursday, the 53-year-old Gu had not been seen in months and has never publicly offered her side of the story. Gu and Zhang are likely to be found guilty of intentional homicide, which carries punishment ranging from more than 10 years in jail to a life sentence or the death penalty. However, any mitigating circumstances, such as Gu’s concern for her son’s safety or that she suffered mental health issues or was acting to protect herself from danger, could lead to a more lenient sentence, said prominent Beijing-

based rights lawyer Li Fangping. The scandal came to light in February, when longtime Bo aide and former Chongqing police chief Wang Lijun suddenly fled to the U.S. Consulate in the city of Chengdu. Apparently fearing for his safety if he remained in Chongqing, Wang told American diplomats about his suspicions that Heywood had been murdered and that Bo’s family was involved. However, in a surprising twist, a man who attended the trial said the court heard evidence that Gu had reported her plans to Wang before she committed the crime, as well as after the deed was done. “Wang Lijun knew all about it, and even participated in planning it,” said the man, speaking on condition of anonymity due to the secrecy surrounding the case and fear of government retaliation. Gu’s lawyer raised questions about how Heywood died, pointing to tests that showed the level of cyanide found in a blood sample from Heywood’s body was not enough to cause death and that the blood sample appeared to have been tampered with, according to the man.


Bolt becomes first to twice win 100, 200 meter gold

LONDON (AP) — Usain Bolt heard all the talk. About the pair of surprising losses at Jamaica’s Olympic trials. About how he isn’t as fast as he used to be. So after leaving the rest of the field in the Olympic 200-meter final far enough behind that he could afford to ease up over the last few strides, Bolt raised his left index finger to his lips and told everyone to shush. Bolt held that pose as he crossed the finish line in 19.32 seconds Thursday night to become the only man in history to win gold medals in the 100 and 200 at consecutive Summer Games. “That was for all that people that doubted me, all the people that was talking all kinds of stuff that I wasn’t going to do it, I was going to be beaten,” Bolt said. “I was just telling them: You can stop talking now, because I am a legend.” Yes, when the stakes are the biggest, the spotlight most bright, Bolt is as good as gold. Good as there’s ever been. Just ask him. “I’ve done something that no one has done before,

which is defend my double title. Back-to-back for me,” Bolt said. “I would say I’m the greatest.” Tough to argue. He added Thursday’s 200 title to the 100 title he won Sunday in 9.63 seconds — the second-fastest time in that race, behind only his own record of 9.58 — duplicating the 100-200 victories he produced at the Beijing Games four years ago. Call it a Double Double. “The 200 spoke for itself. He’s incredible. ... Doing some special things,” U.S. men’s track and field coach Andrew Valmon said. In Thursday’s 200, Bolt led a Jamaican sweep, with his training partner and pal Yohan Blake — who upset Bolt in the two sprint finals at Kingston — getting the silver in 19.44, and Warren Weir taking the bronze in 19.84. That was more than a half-second slower than the champion, a man Weir called “my bigger brother.” “Definitely, he’s a legend. He motivated me a lot,” Blake said. “It’s his time. It’s going to be my time soon.”

Ubaldo Jimenez pitches Indians past Red Sox 5-3 CLEVELAND (AP) — Ubaldo Jimenez struck out a season-high 10 for his first win in more than a month and the Cleveland Indians beat Boston 5-3 on Thursday night, handing the Red Sox their seventh loss in nine games. Jimenez (9-11) allowed three runs over six innings as Cleveland won its second straight after losing 11 in a row. He had been 0-4 with an 8.41 ERA in five starts since beating Tampa Bay on July 7. Jason Donald hit a leadoff homer against Felix Doubront (10-6) and drove in two runs for the Indians, who took a 4-3 lead with a three-run fifth. Chris Perez earned his 30th save in 34 chances for Cleveland, which fired pitching coach Scott Radinsky before the game. Perez pitched a perfect ninth after blowing saves Sunday and Tuesday, allowing eight runs over 1 1-3 innings in those two appearances.

It was Perez’s first clean-shaven outing of the season. He shaved his scraggly beard before Wednesday’s game, when Cleveland beat Minnesota to end its losing streak. The Indians improved to 24-13 in series openers, second to the New York Yankees’ 24-12. It wasn’t how the Red Sox wanted to open a 10-game road trip that includes three-game series against AL East rivals Baltimore and New York. Boston ran itself out of a potential rally in the seventh. With one out and Pedro Ciriaco on second base, Carl Crawford grounded a pitch from reliever Tony Sipp to shortstop. Asdrubal Cabrera fielded it and threw to third as Ciriaco tried to advance. Cabrera took third baseman Brent Lillibridge’s return throw and tagged out Ciriaco, then whirled and threw to second to nail Crawford

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Will Smith crunched Tom Brady from behind, forcing a fumble in the first quarter. It may be the Saints defensive end’s biggest play for a while. One of four players punished in New Orleans bounty scandal, Smith was suspended for the first four regular-season games. So Thursday night’s sack of New England’s star quarterback was a highlight in the Patriots lackluster 7-6 win in their exhibition opener. John Kasay had a chance to give the Saints (No. 9 in the AP Pro32) the lead, but his 41-yard field goal attempt went wide to the right with 3:07 left.

The game followed two days of joint practices between the teams and was the first for the Patriots (No. 2) since their 21-17 loss in the Super Bowl to the New York Giants. Brady left after two series and 15 plays — plus two holding penalties against new left tackle Nate Solder — and banged his helmet on the ground in anger when he returned to the bench. He finished with four completions in seven attempts for 30 yards and the 11-yard sack from which he got up slowly on his first possession. Smith came around the left tackle position filled by Solder after Matt Light retired.

and guidance counselors from our local schools. The goal of the partnership is to get a minimum of 200 businesses signed on by 2020 to provide local students access to a full range of vocational, technical and occupational experiences throughout the school years to support our region’s long-term workforce development needs. This initiative will help ensure that all Lakes Region businesses have access to a qualified and well-trained workforce. With a $15,000 grant from the Samuel P. Pardoe Foundation, 200x2020 is currently working to build a Lakes Region internship and job shadow database for high school students. This tool will be made available to all the high schools in our region starting in the fall of 2012. The goal is to develop at least 30 internships or job shadows at local companies this summer and to continue growing the database into a searchable, online tool with many more internship and job shadow opportunities available in the future. While the initial focus is on programming at the high school level, the initiative will develop programming for students at other grade levels in subsequent years. With this additional $150,000 in tax credits awarded, see next page

Well Workplace practitioner promotes health and wellness at Meredith Village Savings Bank MEREDITH — Lori Groleau has earned distinction as a Well Workplace Practitioner for her efforts in promoting health and wellness at Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB). Groleau, Human Resource Generalist — Employment and Wellness, was certified as a Well Workplace Practitioner by the Wellness Council of America (WELCOA) after completing Well Workplace University comprehensive training program. This program provided her with the knowledge and skills necessary to develop, deliver and evaluate a results-oriented worksite wellness program at the bank. “We are incredibly proud of Lori’s achievement as a nationallyrecognized wellness professional and the inspiration and leadership she has shown in inspiring our employees to lead healthier lifestyles,” said Sam Laverack, president and CEO of MVSB. “Her efforts have led to measurable improvements in the health and wellbeing of our employees, which ultimately improves our ability to meet the needs of our customers and the communities we serve.” Groleau’s position with the bank is to recruit and screen candidate for a variety of roles at the bank. She began her career at MVSB in human resources department in 2005 as Human Resource Generalist/Staffing. Later she earned her Professional in

Human Resources (PHR) certification from the Society for Human Resource Management. Currently as chair of the bank’s Wellness Committee, Groleau has been instrumental in developing successful wellness fairs, workshops, exercise classes and activities, as well as providing resources and information to promote health and wellness at the bank. There have been many highlights of the bank’s wellness program. The bank began a comprehensive 8-week wellness program called Weigh-to-Go, which covered a wide range of topics including goal setting, meal planning, healthy cooking demonstrations and one-on-one nutrition counseling sessions (including metabolism testing) with a licensed/registered dietitian. Various employee wellness fairs were made available to the staff, which provided information and resources on heart health, cancer prevention and other topics. Flu shots, testing of cholesterol and glucose levels and other health services were also provided under the program. The bank also conducted fitness challenges that encouraged friendly competition among employees to become more active, adopt healthier eating habits, and strive for mind/body/spirit wellness. This spring, the committee encouraged friendly competition among employee teams who tracked the miles they walked each week and recorded them on a map of the 2,100-mile Appalachian Trail. Teams competed to see who would complete the hike first based on he number of miles they walked during the five weeks of the program. A monthly newsletter is sent out featuring information about Wellness Committee activities, fitness tips, healthy recipes, and inspiring stories from co-workers who have made significant progress in reaching their fitness and health goals.

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis have a great deal of social control today. You’ll set boundaries for what you’re willing to accept from others, and then you’ll encourage them to go wild within those boundaries. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Maybe you don’t remember last night’s dreams, but they likely were filled with unfamiliar or vaguely familiar faces. In some way, you are far from home, but you’ll make your way back through the course of the day. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Though you’d like to be led by someone strong and able who has been there before, what you hoped to gain through the guidance of a teacher, you’ll find in a book or tutorial for a fraction of the cost. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There are options you’re not seeing because the people around you don’t see them. Instead of agreeing to the same reality, be different. The universe is counting on you to be different. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You have a mighty purpose today: to make people smile. You cannot underestimate the good such a purpose can do in the world, and you will achieve your aim. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 10). You have the best kind of fun this month: the kind you make yourself. Friends help, though. What you do purely for kicks could wind up being profitable in September. January features the study of a different culture. Family connections bring adventure in December. A romantic proposal in June is stellar. Virgo and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 35, 25, 4, 18 and 9.


ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll be a leader. Instead of handing people the job, let them come up with ideas and solutions on their own. They’ll work harder to execute those kinds of solutions. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). “Grab the bull by the horns,” they say -- but they forget that the bull usually has other ideas. Hang on to your bucking bronco. The rough ride of late is about to calm down, thanks to your steadfastness. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Kindnesses done to others in the distant past will come to fruition in kindnesses done to you in return. Be prepared to reap some much-needed help from the good deeds you’ve sown. CANCER (June 22-July 22). This is not a zero-sum game in which your success comes at someone else’s expense. There is an expense, but it can’t be absorbed by anyone but you. You’ll pay your own way. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll talk about multiple subjects with so many different people that you may find that you forget whom you told what. It will help you to slow down and reflect on it tonight. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are so busy with life now that you might feel like you’ve run a triathlon. Good news from an unexpected place will reenergize you and get you back into the swing of things. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The journey you’re on requires both drivers and passengers, and you are versatile enough to be either one. You’ve been at the wheel long enough; slide over to the passenger side and relax. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You

Today’s Highlight in History: On Aug. 10, 1962, Marvel Comics superhero Spider-Man made his debut in issue 15 of “Amazing Fantasy” (cover price: 12 cents). On this date: In 1680, Pueblo Indians launched a successful revolt against Spanish colonists in present-day New Mexico. In 1792, during the French Revolution, mobs in Paris attacked the Tuileries (TWEE’-luh-reez) Palace, where King Louis XVI resided. (The king was later arrested, put on trial for treason, and executed.) In 1821, Missouri became the 24th state. In 1846, President James K. Polk signed a measure establishing the Smithsonian Institution. In 1861, Confederate forces routed Union troops in the Battle of Wilson’s Creek in Missouri, the first major engagement of the Civil War west of the Mississippi River. In 1874, Herbert Clark Hoover, the 31st president of the United States, was born in West Branch, Iowa. In 1921, Franklin D. Roosevelt was stricken with polio at his summer home on the Canadian island of Campobello. In 1949, the National Military Establishment was renamed the Department of Defense. In 1962, the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum was dedicated in West Branch, Iowa, on the 88th birthday of the former president, who attended the ceremony along with former President Harry S. Truman. In 1969, Leno and Rosemary LaBianca were murdered in their Los Angeles home by members of Charles Manson’s cult, one day after actress Sharon Tate and four other people had been slain. In 1975, television personality David Frost announced he had purchased the exclusive rights to interview former President Richard Nixon. In 1988, President Ronald Reagan signed a measure providing $20,000 payments to Japanese-Americans who’d been interned by their government during World War II. One year ago: Marine Corps Gen. John Allen, the top American commander in Afghanistan, said international forces had slain the Taliban insurgents responsible for shooting down a U.S. helicopter, killing 30 Americans and seven Afghan commandos.

Page 24 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, August 10, 2012


Dear Annie: My husband and I are the parents of a 15-yearold boy. “Will” is a good student. He has been in a friendly relationship with a 15-year-old girl, and it has become serious. They have had sex on two different occasions, and Will used a condom both times. There was a brief pregnancy scare, and the girl was so concerned that she told her parents about her predicament. Now her father wants us to pay for her birth control pills. I don’t know what to say about this. I don’t know what type of insurance they have. And I think putting her on the pill is saying, “Great, have sex.” And who knows whether she will have partners other than my son. Is he responsible for her birth control? What should I do? -- His Mom Dear Mom: It’s a good sign that your son feels comfortable discussing his sex life with you, but it is unfair to believe that a girl on birth control pills is going to be more promiscuous than a boy using condoms. And while we aren’t crazy about 15-year-olds having sex, once they start, they aren’t likely to stop. You should be relieved that both kids are being responsible about using protection to prevent not only pregnancy, but also sexually transmitted diseases. That said, you are not obligated to pay for his girlfriend’s choice of birth control. He should continue to use condoms. Her body belongs to her. Dear Annie: My 62-year-old husband and I have been married for 25 years. For the past 11, he has owned a small yet profitable bar. While he doesn’t do much hands-on work anymore, he still supervises the bartenders and the business. Here’s the problem. My husband drives home drunk at least once a week. There are taxi services that easily could pick him up and return him the next day, but he prefers to drive himself.

I have threatened to leave. I’ve threatened to toss his belongings in the yard. I’ve even threatened to call the cops. But I haven’t done any of those things, and he knows my threats are empty. Most of the time, he denies that he was drunk, and we go silent for a few days, not speaking at all. I have stressed what he is putting at risk. It’s his job to prevent this with his customers, yet he’s somehow above it all. Last night was the last straw. Since it’s never a good idea to talk to drunk people, I let him know I was angry and then went to bed. He is setting a horrible example for our 21-yearold son. Any suggestions? -- The Drunk’s Wife Dear Wife: You both are setting a horrible example. As long as there are no consequences for his behavior, your husband will continue to drive drunk. Please don’t wait for the consequences to be deadly. Follow through on some of those threats, particularly the one about calling the police. He may become angry, but you could be saving his life, as well as the lives of other drivers. Also contact Al-Anon (al-anon.alateen. org) and get some emotional support. Dear Annie: As a cancer survivor, I would like to thank you for your wonderful response to “Clueless on Cancer Etiquette.” I’d like to add two more suggestions: First, please don’t comment on how people look. Just say, “It’s good to see you.” And finally, I was reluctant to make requests when people said, “What can I do for you?” Instead, please offer choices such as: “I want to wash your car, work in your yard, bring a home-cooked meal or clean house while you are at the doctor’s. Which do you prefer?” One neighbor brought easy, quick meals and just dropped them off. Actually, she rang the doorbell and left. It was the sweetest thing. -- K.

Cynthia McKnight earns LRCC merit scholarship

Lakes Region Community College (LRCC) Liberal Arts Transfer Student, Cynthia McKnight, right, from Alton Bay, is pictured with LRCC Arts and Sciences Department Head, Kathleen Kenney, left, of Concord. McKnight has received the New Hampshire Community College Merit Scholarship of $1,000 per year that is renewable for three years from University of New Hampshire. McKnight has maintained a perfect 4.0 grade point average in her studies at LRCC over the past two years. She is continuing at UNH to pursue the Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Teaching and was able to transfer all of the credits she had hoped from LRCC. “Starting LRCC’s Liberal Arts Program allowed me to save a great deal of money while still receiving a top quality education,” says McKnight. “Being a mom, the College’s flexible schedules allowed me to get a huge jump on my Bachelor’s Degree. I couldn’t have done this without Professor Kenney’s help in selecting courses for transfer to UNH.” McKnight has always wanted to teach and English has become her passion. She plans to teach high school level English after completing her Bachelor’s Degree. (Courtesy photo)
