Truck, copper & tools stolen from State School campus BY ADAM DRAPCHO THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — Police are investigating the theft of a vehicle, copper and tools from the former State School property off North Main Street sometime between Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning.
Laconia Police Captain Matt Canfield said the theft “happened sometime overnight” and was reported to police at 6:30 Wednesday morning. It appears that someone broke into the maintenance building and stripped what Canfield called “an undetermined
amount of copper wire” out of the structure. Also found missing were power tools, hand tools, landscaping equipment and a state-owned pickup truck. Presumably, the thief loaded the stolen items into the truck and used the vehicle to make his or her escape.
Canfield wasn’t sure what kind or color of truck was stolen, however, he said it bore signage identifying it as the property of the State of New Hampshire. Although many of the buildings on the former State School campus sit vacant, Canfield see THEFT page 13

32nd former Exeter Hospital patient diagnosed with hepatitis C CONCORD (AP) — Another New Hampshire patient has been diagnosed with the same strain of hepatitis C carried by a medical technologist accused of stealing drugs and contaminating syringes that were used on patients. A total of 32 former Exeter Hospital patients have
been diagnosed since the investigation began in May, though the case announced Wednesday was a bit different. Public health officials say the patient was treated at the hospital’s cardiac lab before David Kwiatkowski’s (kwiht-KOW’-skeez) reported April 2011 start date, though the patient was still in
the hospital when Kwiatkowski began work. To rule out any other staff, the state is recommending that certain other hospital employees get tested. Kwiatkowski previously worked in seven other states, moving from hospital to hospital despite having been fired twice over allegations of drug use and theft.
SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — Nathaly Uribe has all the papers she needs to get a work permit — something the 17-year-old daughter of a construction worker only dreamed of growing up as an illegal immigrant in the United States. The high school senior said she hopes a federal program beginning Wednesday and defers deportation for illegal immigrants will make it easier to get a decent job and help pay for college. “This is my country. It’s where my roots are,” said Uribe, who moved from Chile when she was a toddler and lives in Glen Burnie, Md. “It feels great to know that the country that I call home is finally accepting me.” Thousands of young illegal immigrants lined up Wednesday hoping for the right to work legally in America without being deported. The Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals could expand the rights of more than 1 mil-
lion young illegal immigrants by giving them work permits, though they would not obtain legal residency here or a path to citizenship. At least 13,000 people stood in line in Chicago, clutching reams of paperwork, for a workshop led by immigrant rights advocates at the city’s Navy Pier. Hundreds of potential applicants waited outside nonprofit offices in Los Angeles for help filing paperwork to open the door to the staples of success in America — a work permit, and then later a Social Security number and driver’s license. “It’s something I have been waiting for since I was two years old,” said Bupendra Ram, a 25-yearold communications graduate student in Fullerton, Calif., who still needs supporting documents from his Fiji Islands home before he can apply. “This offers us an opportunity to fulfill the dreams I’ve had since I was a child.” see LEGAL WORK page 8
Thousands line up for right to work legally in U.S. United Airlines loses girl on solo trip to camp
NEW YORK (AP) — Should you let your child fly alone? Parents may wonder after a couple alleged this week that their 10-year-old daughter flying to summer camp was stranded at one of the world’s busiest airports after United Airlines failed to keep track of her. The girl ultimately made it to camp safely. But the incident highlights some of the risks of children flying alone, including the a little-known industry practice of hiring outside companies to escort kids from gate to gate. Phoebe Klebahn was flying as an “unaccompanied minor” from San Francisco to Traverse City, Mich. with a connection in Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. The girl’s parents, Annie and Perry Klebahn, had paid United an extra $99 to assist her during the June 30 trip. When the first flight landed in Chicago, the company United hired apparently failed to show up. The parents claim in a letter sent to the airline that their daughter asked for help, including the use of a cell phone, but was repeatedly told to wait by flight attendants. And it appears no one from the airline called the camp after the girl missed her connecting flight. “She was sad and scared and no one helped,” the parents wrote. They shared the letter with media though a family friend who is a business management professor. The parents did not respond to calls seeking an interview. The Klebahns wrote that it took them nearly an hour of frantic phone calls to get an answer from United once the camp informed them their daughter hadn’t arrived at the Traverse City airport. see LOST GIRL page 9 Meredith Cinema Meredith Shopping Ctr. • 279-7836 www.barnzs.com

U.S. economic recovery weakest since World War II
WASHINGTON (AP) — The recession that ended three years ago this summer has been followed by the feeblest economic recovery since the Great Depression. Since World War II, 10 U.S. recessions have been followed by a recovery that lasted at least three years. An Associated Press analysis shows that by just about any measure, the one that began in June 2009 is the weakest. The ugliness goes well beyond unemployment, which at 8.3 percent is the highest this long after a recession ended. Economic growth has never been weaker in a postwar recovery. Consumer spending has never been so slack. Only once has job growth been slower. More than in any other post-World War II recovery, people who have jobs are hurting: Their pay-
checks have fallen behind inflation. Many economists say the agonizing recovery from the Great Recession, which began in December 2007 and ended in June 2009, is the predictable consequence of a housing bust and a grave financial crisis. Credit, the fuel that powers economies, evaporated after Lehman Brothers collapsed in September 2008. And a 30 percent drop in housing prices erased trillions in home equity and brought construction to a near-standstill. So any recovery was destined to be a slog. “A housing collapse is very different from a stock market bubble and crash,” says Nobel Prize-winning economist Peter Diamond of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. “It affects so many people. It only corrects very slowly.” see RECOVERY page 12

Truck allegedly stolen in Northfield recovered in Gilford with dog still in it By Gail OBer
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
GILFORD — A local man was order held on $5,000 cash bail and $10,000 personal recognizance bail after a Belknap County sheriff’s deputy arrested him on the Laocnia By-Pass a few hours after he allegedly stole a truck that was parked at a Northfield yard sale. Jacob. S. LaBonte, 23, of 43 Upland Drive told Deputy E. Justin Blanchette that he thought someone was following him while he was in Northfield so he took the truck. He is charged with one count of receiving stolen property.
Blanchette recognized the truck that had been reported stolen and stopped LaBonte who was taken into custody without incident. Affidavits obtained from 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division indicate the victim had left her keys and her small dog in the truck while she briefly went into the Northfield home to look at some antiques. Blanchette said Northfield Police Sgt. Timothy Dow and the victim met him at the scene and she took her unharmed dog home with her. Blanchette said he also called a relative of LaBonte’s who said he had been by her house earlier in the day with the truck and she thought it was unusual because
she hadn’t seen him in about a year. He said the relative alleged a history of drug abuse on LaBonte’s part. According to Blanchette, LaBonte’s criminal record shows he has previous convictions for four counts of misdemeanor possession of a controlled drug, resisting arrest, driving while intoxicated, and two violations of parole. Because he said LaBonte “presented mental health issues,” Judge Jim Carroll ordered that the Belknap County House of Corrections contact Genesis Behavioral Health on LaBonte’s behalf. He also ordered a further review of LaBonte’s bail and his mental health issues on August 21.
Senate candidate Grimm declines to debate Youssef on Young’s radio program By Gail OBer
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
FRANKLIN — District 7 State Senate candidate William “Bill” Grimm said yesterday he will not participate in a local radio debate against his opponent Josh Youssef for the contested spot on the Republican ticket. Although it was Youssef who officially reached out to Grimm on Monday to appear on The Advocates — a program hosted by conservative activist Niel Young that airs daily on WEZS-AM from 9 to 10 a.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon — Young, who has endorsed Youssef, extended his offer to Grimm for an hour-long debate on a Saturday morning at the August 8 monthly meeting of the Belknap County Republican Committee. At the time, Grimm said “We’ll see.” Yesterday Grimm, who is from Franklin, said he “would be happy to debate Laconian Josh Youssef but not on Niel Young’s show.” Because of a family obligation, Youssef was unable to attend the GOP monthly meeting but Young rep-
resented him. Prompted by a question asking if either candidate has signed “the pledge” — meaning a candidate vows never to vote for any broad-base tax like income or sales taxes — Grimm said he had signed the pledge but “only for two years” because he wants to go into the Senate and learn more about where the problems are. He said he is and always has been a fiscal conservation, saying the real issue is spending especially on long-term obligations with short-term money. The two got into a brief back-and-forth over the Franklin and Laconia property tax caps — that, in general, tie the growth in property taxes to growth in the urban consumer price index. Young broached it first by equating “the pledge” with the tax cap and saying “a tax cap should not be temporary.” Grimm said he thought the tax caps, which are very different than “the pledge,” were “well intended” but the state and individual communities have to look at how they are spending taxpayers’ money and whether or not items like fees and other cost items

are being pushed down onto residents. “It’s either a tax cap or it’s not a tax cap,” said Young. “Caps are caps for a reason and the people voted for them.” “Please don’t make me use the 11th commandment,” he said referring to President Ronald Reagan’s decree that Republicans should not speak ill of each other. Young said the 11th Commandment is the only thing Reagan said with which he disagrees. Grimm said yesterday he will participate in an invitation-only candidates event sponsored by former gubernatorial candidate Karen Testerman at her Franklin home on August 23, as will Youssef. Testerman has endorsed Youssef for the primary nomination although other Franklin Republican political leaders such as Mayor Ken Merrifield and former Franklin Mayors David Palfrey, Tony Giunta, and Stuart Trachy have endorsed Grimm. Primary day is September 11. Newly drawn District 7 includes Laconia, Franklin, Gilford, Belmont, Canterbury, Northfield, Salisbury, Canterbury, Boscawen and Webster.

Koch brothers moonshine Question: If you mix a cocktail of “black liquor,” biofuels, diesel and a generous splash of tax subsidies — then have it shaken vigorously by a U.S. senator and served in a golden goblet by corporate lobbyists — what do you call it? Answer: Koch Brothers Moonshine. Black liquor is the key ingredient here, though don’t mistake it for an adult beverage like Johnnie Walker “black label” scotch or the relatively new wine named “Black Box.” No one drinks this black liquor moonshine. But fasten the seatbelt on your barstool, for you do pick up the tab for it — and the billionaire Koch boys do appreciate your civic generosity. What we have here is an alcoholic sludge. Yuck! Yeah, you would never imbibe the nasty goo, which is a byproduct of the papermaking process, but it is a useful fuel that the industry uses to power its mills. Fine — it’s an example creative recycling. But, next thing you know, the scheming honchos of these very profitable paper corporations went from creative to cabal. Conspiring with Sen. Mike Crapo and other practitioners of the legislative black arts, they turned their humble sludge into a slick, $3-to-4-billiona-year corporate welfare freebie. In 2007, Crapo and a covey of corporate lobbyists quietly made their “liquor” eligible for a subsidy meant to help wean America off of oil by encouraging the production of a biofuel-gasoline mix to power cars and trucks. Taking advantage of this subsidy meant for the common good is not at all fine. One, the subsidy for black liquor benefits so few at such a high price for no public purpose. Two, mill sludge can’t be used in vehicles, so the subsidy perverts the law’s integrity. And three, rather than adding a biofuel to their sludge, the papermakers add diesel! So these sneaks are siphoning-off billions of dollars from a clean-fuels program by making a dirty fuel even dirtier. Wait, there’s more. Crapo’s cynicism and hypocrisy are truly
breathtaking, for this Idaho Republican routinely blasts other senators for making the federal deficit worse by creating tax loopholes for — hello — special interests. Moreover, not wanting to be seen as just another senatorial servant of industry, deficit hawk Crapo performed his black magic in the dark, working behind closed doors early this year to preserve the fuel-funding loophole for black liquor. (The next time you hear Congress critters like Crapo demanding that you sacrifice to cut the deficit, demand that they show you the rabbits they’re hiding in their magician’s hat.) Who’s profiting from this load of moonshine? Right at the top are the infamous, far-right-wing Koch brothers. The secretive multibillionaire political extremists have long been financing everything from dozens of corporate front groups to the tea party in their relentless effort to impose their plutocratic agenda on our country. One major way they pay for this onslaught is by tapping directly into the blatant corporate welfare of the black liquor loophole. The Koch industrial empire includes Georgia Pacific, one of America’s largest papermakers, which produces such household products as Brawny and Sparkle brand paper towels, Dixie paper plates and paper cups, Angel Soft and Quilted Northern brand toilet paper, and Vanity Fair paper towels. GP — and the Kochs — are the happy recipients of as much as a billion bucks a year from the perverted biofuel subsidy. A dirty windfall from a dirty fuel to underwrite dirty politics. You don’t need a bloodhound’s nose to sniff this one out. The whole thing stinks. (Jim Hightower has been called American’s most popular populist. The radio commentator and former Texas Commissioner of Agriculture is author of seven books, including “There’s Nothing In the Middle of Road but Yellow Stripes and Dead Armadillos” and his new work, “Swim Against the Current: Even Dead Fish Can Go With The Flow”.)
Hope these fine young men don’t have to ‘shop around’ for college To the editor, Last week, on a hot and humid evening, I was mowing a steep part of the lawn at Trinity Church, Meredith. A Jeep SUV pulled into the parking lot carrying three teenage young men. The passenger stuck his head out the window and yelled, “Can we help you?” (They had noticed that I was no spring chicken and was sweating profusely.) I said that this was my workout for the day. He invited me, with a warm smile, to workout with them. (They were in training for the InterLakes High School football team.)
I confessed that I was not ready for their level of training. We all had a good laugh. I hope that these fine young men don’t have to “shop around” (a quote from Mitt Romney) and settle for the cheapest option rather than receive the college education they deserve. Or that they will not have to graduate with huge debts because Pell Grants have been cut (as in the budget proposed by Republican VP designate Paul Ryan). John S. Allen Laconia

LETTERS Would Mr. Boutin know a good teacher if he saw one in action? To the editor, Ordinarily I try to stay away from responding to letters written by others, but Tony Boutin crossed the line last Saturday. Not withstanding what the president says, and how “looney tune” it may be, there is some logic to fixing educational approaches if they are, in fact, broken. There are several factors in Tony’s argument that are true. The problem is, he then muddies the real with halftruths. I was an “academic wonk” once myself. I was also a father of six. They grew up and became productive nonpublic sector job holders. Due in part, probably, to what they saw their father going through as a public servant. I got to tell you, Tony, I didn’t do it for the “big bucks.” I did it because it needed to be done and I was dedicated to those I served, the children in my classroom. I started my career teaching in classrooms that averaged 35 students in size. That was in 1961 and the pay was $4,000 annually. Some would say that the 60s were to blame for a lot that has happened since. But those “liberals in Washington” passed a landmark education bill in 1965. Now its true that the Elementary and Secondary Education Act threw a lot of money out to the states and local school districts. And, it is also true that some of it got wasted, but most of it got into the hands of those who put it to good use. Class sizes were reduced, inadequate buildings were upgraded or replaced and, yes, teachers started getting higher pay. Mine soared to $10,000 in 1969. Then I took a cut in pay! I came to New Hampshire from suburban New Jersey. I found a nice, big old house and went to work in Franklin. It wasn’t Gilford, that’s for sure! Yes, to quote Tony, I was part of the
educational toilet. I was also overworked and under-paid in 1970. Even so, I did a good service to those that came through my classroom doors, They came, I taught, and they learned to the best of their abilities. Would you, Tony, know a good teacher if you saw one in action? If you took your evaluative instrument and “pretended” to be a principal and sat in the back of a typical elementary classroom, what would you be looking for while there? Would you want everything to be quiet and orderly or would you being looking for evidence that ideas and knowledge were being exchanged regardless of the noise it might create? Let’s return to the present. We have each arrived here at this point in time by a process called living. I, myself, am not the man I was in 1970. I am old and I tire easily. Furthermore, I have absolutely no feeling that I was a “free rider” for the 20 years of my life spent in education. Here is a fact, it only took 20 years to burn me out. I sold out my ideals because my family came first and they need shoes and a whole lot more! So, I became a salesman, selling things to people who weren’t educated enough to know they probably didn’t need what I was selling. But I was out of the public sector and found it easy to make more than I ever earned as a teacher. In closing , I’d like to think that Tony has been on a board of education; but I doubt it. Maybe he has served in the Legislature. Did he ever attend a PTA meeting? The point I am trying to make is that all problems or solutions are local. You want to get some change for the better get in there and make a difference. Don’t sit on the sidelines and carp. Hurry up, before you get too old and loose you energy! Bill Dawson Northfield
Choose wisely America, our future together depends on it To the editor, The upcoming election evokes the adage: “The vice president is merely a heartbeat away from the presidency.” Imagine the following scenario: the White House physician enters the Office of Vice President Paul Ryan and in somber tones informs the 42-year-old occupant, “The presi-
dent lies in a coma and the outcome is uncertain.” Shortly thereafter, the White House chief of staff enters the office and advises the V.P. “Intelligence is alarmed by certain moves by Iran which may be directed toward Israel”.

LETTERS Less government is no more the Rx for America than less To the editor, Readers often express their faith that “the market”, in its wisdom, will arrive at an “appropriate” equilibrium and, thus, that government intervention or regulation is not “appropriate”. I should like to say a few words about “the market”. The first is that “the market” does not exist. Of course markets exist, but the idea that there is only one type of market, which is self regulating, is not correct. There are two (pure) markets, one which is self regulating and one which is not, and each of the markets which we, throughout our lives, enter are some combination of each of these two pure markets. Say we, we as a whole, want to buy potatoes for supper, a new flat screen TV, or a car for everyday use. We consider our budget, our quality requirements, and then, within reason, buy the least expensive item. If prices rise we buy fewer, buy a cheaper substitute, or put off the purchase. If prices fall we may buy more, a higher quality item, or perhaps save the difference. The seller, in turn, wants to clear his inventory. Produce spoils; TVs, cars, and clothing go out of style; packaged goods expire. If the shelves remain full, prices are lowered; if items fly out of the stores prices will probably rise. The result is that supply and demand tend to balance through the adjustment of prices — the self regulating market mechanism we so admire. Let us consider another market. You have heard that Apple, Google, Amazon, or Facebook stock is going to be available, and is a “sure thing”. If you have some extra money, perhaps you buy; perhaps you wait. The price goes up. If we were talking potatoes fewer would be bought, but since we are talking stock, more will probably be bought. And as prices rise the stock becomes more sought after, not less — we are certainly not talking potatoes. Now assume a sharp drop. Time to buy more potatoes or that flat screen, but those holding the stock are wondering, “Did I make a mistake, is it time to sell?” Say the news is bad enough that people start selling and the price keeps dropping, a few contrarians may buy, but more will be selling. This market acts in a way exactly the opposite of our market for potatoes, the market for consumption goods. This is a market for speculative goods, goods to be resold. The first market is characterized by negative feedback, a price rise leads to a decrease in demand and limitation in future price rises. The second market is characterized by positive feedback, a price rise leads to an increase in demand and often a further price rise. The first tends to be self regulating; the second tends to boom and bust cycles.
Some markets are purely of one type or the other but many are not. Say you buy a new car each year, the resale value will enter into your calculations. Say you buy some real estate, perhaps a farm or woodlot to pass on to the kids — you think one way. If it is a big house with each getting a bedroom, what happens when the nest is empty? Now you realize that you are both consuming housing and speculating in housing. Now let us talk about government regulations, the “nanny state” if you like. I am not particularly fearful nor do I need a great deal of hand holding. If the chimney needs work or a tree limb needs to be removed, I calculate the risks, prepare, and do the job. If I want more excitement, say a wilderness trek or to sail across the Atlantic, again I calculate the risks, prepare, and proceed. If there is some extra money and I am up for something financial, I can buy some stock, some silver, or an apartment house (I could even visit Foxwoods). However, when I go downtown I do not want to discover that the OK Corral is just around the corner; when I go to the movies, it is to see the movie, not to either duck or to be a hero; and when I make a deposit in the local bank I want to know that the money will be responsibly handled, not that some employee of the bank is on the way to Foxwoods or Wall Street with my (and your) money. I am not afraid of guns, but I have other things to do than to perfect my fast draw: let the police keep the OK Corral quiet and the movie theater safe. I will gladly pay my taxes for that. My investments (speculations, if you like) will only prosper if the country as a whole prospers. And the key to that is education. I will gladly pay my taxes for quality education. And how to we keep the banks honest and out of the casino? With effective financial regulations, because as was outlined above the financial markets, the speculative markets, characterized by positive feedback, are unstable, subject to booms and busts. They are not up to the job. Again, a job for government. You do not want the thief in your bedroom, why would you tolerate him (or her) in your bank account? “Less government” is no more an effective prescription for whatever might ail this country than is “more government”. What is needed is people with the courage to admit and recognize where regulations might be reduced and where they need to be increased. As a solution to our financial problems “the market” is in the same class as Santa Claus and the tooth fairy. Barry Dame Gilford

JFK also knew if nobody has money to spend there is no demand To the editor, A high five goes to Johan Andersen for reminding people with Henry Ford that economics isn’t just supply sided. Tending to just the “job creators” never works. Conservatives have not figured that one out yet. Never will. Consider the JFK myths that economic conservatives try to spread. It would appear (?) that G.W. Brooks may have listed JFK’s supply side tax cut as if JFK was a supply sider (it is a common right wing talking point). A supply side tax cut to 70-percent for over $400,000 was just a part of the overall plan — which was mostly Keynesian or demand-side. Like President Obama’s plan. Led by his chief economic advisor Walter Heller, JFK embarked on a Keynesian strategy of running a deficit to stimulate growth. Like FDR, JFK resisted the Keynesian approach but after a year and a half in office he realized it was necessary. Kennedy had wanted to tackle the problem with a balanced budget but realized it would be a weak approach. They needed to quickly pump up the economy. That doesn’t work well with supply side tax cuts because it does not create demand. Demand-side tax cuts and spending programs like Eisenhower’s interstate highway project do that. Running a deficit is often necessary in the short term to lift an economy out of recession.
If nobody has money to spend, there is no demand. If there is no demand, companies reduce both inventory and workforce. What good is a job creator if folks can’t buy their product? Liberal scholar Michael Harrington called the Kennedy-Johnson plan “reactionary Keynesianism”. Too far, JFK, too far! Big business was against his plan because they preferred a conservative balanced budget strategy. In fact, 88-percent of businessmen viewed Kennedy as hostile to business in a summer 1962 poll. Conservatives in Congress obstructed JFK’s spending program but he was able to reform the tax code; loopholes, tax rates, tax credits, etc. If there are any doubts as to the JFK administration’s strategy and goal, it can be summed up with JFK economist Arthur Okun’s statement, “The Revenue Act of 1964 was aimed at the demand, rather than the supply, side of the economy”. Demand-side economics? Vote Obama! Throw the obstructionist Tea Party overboard and let’s get moving. And here is a JFK gem for the Ayn Randers. “If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.” Communitarianism, folks! That is the American way, too.

We need Sen. Forrester to debate so that we may be informed To the editor, This letter is in response to the letter from Ben Sanders I read in the August 9 edition of The Laconia Sun. Mr. Sanders asked the question “Who is Bob Lamb”, stating he does not know anything about Mr. Lamb. I found it very easy to learn about Mr. Lamb by visiting his website: http:// www.boblambforsenate.com/home. In addition to being able to read about his background, I was able to learn his thoughts on some of the key issues facing our state. I was pleased to find this information on his website as I was unable to find any position statements on Sen. Forrester’s website. Mr. Sanders questions why Sen. Forrester should participate in any debates as “those of us that know her, know her voting record and what she supports” so, “Why should she do that?”. Mr. Sanders, there are thousands of voters in Senate District 2 and the majority of those do not “know” Sen. Forrester. She was elected to represent all voters in District 2, not just those who know or voted for her. Tilton voters will be new to District 2 as well. As our elected senator, I would
expect Ms. Forrester to feel a sense of responsibility to make every effort so the voters of the district have the opportunity to hear her and Mr. Lamb debate the important issues facing our state. Instead she appears to be making every effort not to debate. While you may prefer not to, there are many voters who are willing to take the time to research candidates and to attend debates so they can be informed voters. I have learned that Mr. Lamb has an impressive education and business background as well as a broad understanding of the challenges facing N.H. I have researched Sen. Forrester’s voting record and talked to others to learn about it as well; many of the votes she has taken over her term are very concerning to me. I know I have more to learn about both candidates and am therefore anxious for the candidates to debate so I can fulfill my responsibility to be an informed voter. I hope all voters do the same but we need Sen. Forrester to stand and debate in order for us to do that. Elizabeth O’Neil Meredith

LETTERS Hassan’s opposition to School Choice is incredible on 2 fronts To the editor, Maggie Hassan, while running for governor, lives on the campus of Philips Exeter Academy (where her husband is the principal and her kids attended), says she wants to repeal the great School Choice program we just passed because it “cuts a source of money to state government” that she needs to spend.... It is INCREDIBLE for two reasons: One, because a voluntarily donation from private businesses pays for the School Choice program. It is true that IF the business doesn’t donate to the non-profit scholarship program it might pay more in taxes. But think about the implication of her statement for a minute. Let’s say you are an ordinary working citizen and not a business. Doesn’t it follow that every dollar you voluntarily donate to a charity like your church or The Red Cross or The Jimmy Fund is in jeopardy because of this thinking? Don’t you make the contribution to the collection plate or by payroll deduction and enter that contribution on your tax form as charitable deduction? Doesn’t that action translate to less dollars in taxes you pay? I guess Maggie Hassan thinks by her logic
that ALL money donated to charities is actually government money too! I find that incredible. The other issue I have with her viewpoint is, by calling for the repeal of the School Choice law, she is telling all parents who have low and middle incomes, “You shouldn’t have the chance to send your kids to any other school unless you can afford to pay BOTH your local taxes (that pay the bulk of public education costs) AND, AND, AND, the cost of the tuition to the new school”. Additionally, she is saying, “If you are poor, your kids can’t attend any other school, only the school we tell you.” Well, Maggie, maybe my assigned public school doesn’t “fit” my child or maybe the public school in the next town has better programming. The School Choice bill we passed this year makes it possible for students to go to private schools, home schools or some other PUBLIC SCHOOLS. . . wherever you, the parent, want to send them. The unspoken belief is you will do this because you think that is where your child will thrive. Maggie Hassan says no to all that. Representative Greg Hill Northfield
Do we stop this madness now or do we accept socialsim? To the editor, Betty’s and my experience at the Post Office on Wednesday: On the way there my thoughts turned to my youth and years of coaching, and being honored by a majority of Laconia voters to serve in local and state government representing my hometown. Chances are that our grandchildren will never play a sport on the new LHS football field. I met an area business owner near the outside mailboxes. We chatted about downtown. Then we moved to the November election, both of us looking forward to a Romney-Ryan win. He said he was concerned with the future of his grandchildren. If we love them why wouldn’t we want them to live in the America that we knew
until 2008? Will we allow the community organizer (thug) turned dictator, and that bumbling fool vice president, to polarize us and break our spirits, or will we show people that America is still great. Just like my hometown, it is the people, it’s not the buildings and government! While I was chatting by the mailboxes, Betty was having a conversation in the PO parking lot with a gentleman who saw my bumper sticker: “2012- End of an Error”. His remarks resembled both of our convictions. Do we stop this madness now, or do we accept socialism? Think of the grandchildren, please. Niel Young Laconia
World desperately needs people with bold commitment to Jesus To the editor, John Henry came to America from Scotland in the early 18th century to serve as a surveyor, colonel, and justice of the Hanover County Court in colonel Virginia. But it was his son, Patrick, who would change the world. Born in Studley, Virginia, in 1736, Patrick began to make an impact as a young lawyer, particularly because of his speaking ability. As a member of Virginia’s House of Burgesses, he became involved in the dispute between the colonies and the English government. In a famous debate, he argued that the Virginia militia needed to be armed. Others strongly disagreed, but he responded, “I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death.” His passionate stand for liberty became an inspiration, and others began realizing the importance of standing for
principles. He once said. “it cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this nation was founded, not by religionists but by Christians, not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.” Today, the world desperately needs men and women in every nation who have this bold commitment to the Gospel. May God give us more leaders who realize that only He can truly set us free. May He rise up more believers who realize that “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty” (2Corinthians 3:17), and who understands that there is no liberty without His Mighty Holy Ghost. In your life, seek to serve God with your whole heart. Don’t give in to the deceptions in the world, but seek the spiritual freedom that comes only from God. Bishop Paul W. Blake Laconia

Police say they used informant to buy heroin from man then living on Valley St. By Gail OBer
LACONIA — The city man arrested by police at a traffic stop Tuesday has also been charged with two additional counts of felony possession of controlled drugs with the intent to sell them. Joshua R. McLean, 26, of 59 Weirs Blvd. No. 3 was arrested by police Tuesday afternoon on a warrant for drug sales after he was spotted by police leaving his apartment in his girlfriend’s car. Police affidavits obtained from the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division say on April 16, 2012, police used a confidential informant to buy heroin from McLean who was then living at 144 Valley St. Police said the drugs allegedly field tested positive for heroin. Detectives were granted a warrant for McLean’s arrest for drug sales and a search warrant for his apartment Tuesday morning by Judge Timothy McKenna. Police spotted him at 1:30 p.m. After he was taken into custody, police impounded his girlfriend’s car and applied for and received a second search warrant.
Affidavits said they allegedly found one full gallon plastic bag and one quarter-filled plastic bag of marijuana in his apartment. Police also allegedly found a scale and packaging materials. The also said they found two bags of white powder and three different types of pills, all of which are still unidentified. After getting the second warrant to search McLean’s girlfriend’s car, police allegedly found a sandwich bag with 15 oxycodone pills that were of two different types and colors. Detectives identified the pills as oxycodone from their training and experience. They also said they found $750 in varying denominations, with the pills, inside the car’s center console. Judge Jim Carroll ordered McLean held on $3,500 cash-only and $20,000 personal recognizance bail. He ordered a hearing before the court accepts the bail should McLean post it. Carroll also ruled that if McLean posts bail, he enters the Nathan Brody Program or a residential treatment program within 48 hours and then his status will be reviewed weekly.
LEGAL WORK from page 2 Less than three months before an expected tight presidential election, the new immigration program is mired in controversy. Republican critics accuse President Barack Obama of drafting the plan to boost his political standing with Latinos ahead of November’s vote and say the program favors illegal immigrants over unemployed American citizens during dismal economic times. In Arizona, which passed one of the nation’s toughest anti-immigration laws, Gov Jan Brewer signed an executive order Wednesday directing state agencies to deny driver’s licenses and other public benefits to illegal immigrants who obtain work authorizations under the program. Brewer said she’s following the intent of the current state law denying public benefits to illegal immigrants. To be eligible for the federal program, immigrants must prove they arrived in the United States before they turned 16, are 30 or younger, have been living in the country at least five years and are in school or graduated or served in the military. They cannot have been convicted of certain crimes or otherwise pose a safety threat. Initial concerns that federal authorities might take a tough approach on applications or that a Republican presidential victory could unravel applicants’ gains have largely been pushed aside by massive interest from thousands of young people eager to work. In Los Angeles, one immigrant rights’ group started hosting hourly information sessions over the last month to keep up with the frenzy. The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles has handed out 12,000 information packets about the program and is encouraging all eligible immigrants to apply as long as they have stayed out of legal trouble, said Angelica Salas, the organization’s director. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney does not support so-called Dream Act legislation for illegal immigrants who
attend college — a key group that Obama aims to reach with this program. The former Massachusetts governor has also criticized the deferred action program but has not said it he would reverse it, pledging instead an unspecified “civil but resolute” long-term fix to illegal immigration. So far, the measure has won favor for Obama along Latinos — many who view immigration as a litmus test when choosing a political candidate, said Manuel Pastor, director of the University of Southern California’s Center for the Study of Immigrant Integration. “What this has done is to signal that the president, who was unable to get comprehensive immigration reform, does at least care about the situation of these immigrants,” Pastor said. “This is something that has been overwhelmingly popular in the immigrant population and in the Latino population in general.” Some Republican lawmakers have accused Obama of sidestepping Congress and creating a backdoor amnesty program. “It’s a betrayal of American young people,” said Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, a California Republican. “We’re supposed to be representing the interests of the American people — not people who come here illegally from other countries.” In an internal document outlining the program’s implementation, Department of Homeland Security officials estimated more than 1 million people would apply in the first year and about 890,000 would be eligible. On Wednesday, immigrants lined up for help filing applications at workshops around the country. Others sought identity documents from consulates to be able to apply. Jaqueline Cinto said she’s still working on gathering the documents she needs, knowing it’s her only shot at putting her master’s degree in education to good use. But she’s nervous that filing the papers might put her relatives at risk for deportation.

Dump truck crashes through Belmont utility pole at 4 a.m.; driver’s injuries said not serious BELMONT — An empty tri-axle dump truck went off the road on Route 106 at about 4 a.m. yesterday morning, snapped a utility pole and slammed into a tree. Fire Chief David Parenti said the unidentified 73-year-old male driver was taken by the Belmont Fire Department to Lakes Region General Hospital for what he described as minor injuries. Parenti said the accident caused the truck to leak diesel fuel and the leak brought members of the state Department of Environmental Services to evaluate. He said DES representatives will return within a few days to determine if and how much of the
contaminated soil should be removed. He also said Public Service of New Hampshire responded and was able to prop up the electrical wires and, to his knowledge, there was no power outage. He said PSNH has since replaced the pole. Parenti said the rear end of the truck became mired in the mud and it took two wreckers to pull it out. He said Belmont and State Police, Belmont Fire personnel, PSNH and DES personnel remained on the scene for about seven hours. He said he does not know the cause of the accident. — Gail Ober
LOST GIRL from page 2 United, part of United Continental Holdings Inc., refused to identify the company that was supposed to look after the girl. It also declined to say if she was ever unsupervised or explain why it took so long to tell the parents where she was. Flight attendants typically wait with children until the contractor arrives. In a statement, the airline said it reached out to the Klebahns to apologize and is reviewing the situation. United has refunded the $99 fee and returned the frequent flier miles the family used for the flight. Parents who need to send their kids traveling alone shouldn’t fret. Hundreds of thousands of kids fly on their own each year — about 160,000 on Delta alone — although the government doesn’t keep detailed data. And while there are occasional mishaps — which would petrify any parent — experts say they represent a small minority of overall trips. “In general, it is safe. You just have to be really smart about it,” said Anne Banas, executive editor of advice site SmarterTravel.com. First off, reservations are made the
old-fashioned way: by calling an airline or travel agent directly. Airlines should waive any additional phone reservation fees. You’ll be charged between $25 and $100 each way for the minor in addition to airfare. When two or more children travel together, most airlines charge a single fee. And kids flying solo usually get to check their first and second bags for free. The fee for unaccompanied minors buys a flight attendant escort on the plane and between flights, but not constant supervision. Children will likely spend some time alone, either on the plane or in an airport room away from other passengers, especially when extended layovers or delays are involved. And while some airlines will hand off minors to other companies — usually the same ones to assist passengers in wheelchairs — not everybody follows that practice. For instance, Southwest Airlines only uses its own employees, according to spokesman Chris Mainz. Delta tries to have its own staff escort kids but spokesman Morgan Durrant notes that contractors might be used on peak days.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A Democratic committee chairman overrode his own subpoena three years ago in an investigation of former subprime mortgage lender Countrywide Financial Corp. to exclude records showing that he, other House members and congressional aides got VIP discounted loans from the company, documents show. The procedure to keep the names secret was devised by Rep. Edolphus Towns, D-N.Y. In 2003, the 15-term congressman had two loans processed by Countrywide’s VIP section, which was established to give discounts to favored borrowers. The effort at secrecy was reversed when Towns’ Republican successor as chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, California Rep. Darrell Issa, issued a second subpoena. It yielded Countrywide records identifying four current House members, a former member and five staff aides whose loans went through the VIP unit. Towns was on the list. Issa, in a statement to The Associated Press on Wednesday, said, “It was a long fight to expose how Countrywide used its VIP program to advance its business and policy goals.” Most of the names had dribbled out to the media by the time Issa issued the committee’s final report last month on Countrywide’s use of loan discounts to buy influence with government officials. But there was no official confirmation until Issa made his report public. Towns’ effort to keep the loans secret was at odds with statements by Republicans and Democrats alike that full disclosure of lawmakers’ financial dealings was the best means for keeping the public aware of congressional perks, unethical conduct and fundraising. Countrywide had been the nation’s largest home loan originator before the housing market collapse. Many of its borrowers were left unable to repay mortgages that, in many cases, required no proof of income or a down payment. The company was pur-
chased in 2008 by Bank of America, which now holds the VIP loan files. The original Towns subpoena had asked for all files that went through the Countrywide VIP unit and specifically mentioned House members and aides. Bank of America sent a spreadsheet that identified 18,000 files that listed a borrower’s employer, but without names to maintain privacy. The spreadsheet identified several files listing the House or Congress as the employer. Since the vast majority of the employers in the spreadsheet were of no interest to the committee, committee Republicans — then in the minority — and majority Democrats each drew up a separate list of loan files to be turned over by the bank. The Republican list totaled 3,000 files and included borrowers listing the House as an employer. Towns narrowed the files to about 300 and excluded references to the House. It was Towns’ truncated list that went to Bank of America. Bank of America confirmed in a statement to The Associated Press that it produced the files requested in the truncated list. “The committee provided the bank with specific instructions and modifications regarding the scope of the subpoena, and the bank followed and fulfilled all instructions and fully complied with the subpoena as modified by the committee,” the bank said. The AP reviewed the original bank spreadsheet of 18,000 and confirmed there were references to the House or Congress. The AP also obtained a copy of the subsequent instructions from Towns to the bank that excluded the House or Congress as an employer. Some borrowers on the VIP list became known as “Friends of Angelo” because they received discounts on orders from then-Countrywide chief executive Angelo Mozilo. The foremost benefit of being a Countrywide VIP was access to discounted loans in which borrowers received a reduction in points and fees. Usually between $350 and $400 was waived.

PUMPKIN from page one more than 100,000 Bhutanese Nepalis left the country for refugee camps in Nepal after being branded illegal immigrants and denied gainful employment, political rights and land ownership. Approximately 60,000 Bhutanese Nepalis have been resettled in the United States, including some 1,600 in New Hampshire. The bilingual book, with parallel English and Nepali text, sprang from the ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) class taught by Laurie Lalish of Lutheran Social Services at the Congregational Church Of Laconia. Terry Farish, coordinator of “Connections,” the adult literacy program of the Humanities Council, explained that many of the older Bhutanese Nepali were farmers and herders with little or no formal education who had not encountered, let alone mastered, the printed word in their native tongue. She said that confined to an oral tradition and verbal communication, added to the challenges of learning English. To clear the hurdle, Farish said that they tapped the oral traditions of Bhutanese Nepali and struck a rich vein. Accompanied by Jo Radner, a folklorist from Maine, and an interpreter, she came to the Congregational Church and encouraged the elders to share their folktales. After swapping childhood memories, Radner asked “how did people tell you stories?” Shyly Tiwari replied “my father told me this story” then, through the interpreter, Nilhari Bhandari, recounted the tale of the pumpkin, inspiring others to recall the stories they heard as children. Tiwari tended cows and goats on the farm where her father grew rice, corn, cucumbers peas, beans, lentils and potatoes. She did not attend school, but thrived on the stories her father told her, which she passed along to her daughter and the elders in the refugee camp in Nepal, where she spent 18 years after leaving Bhutan. To introduce the Bhutanese Nepali to a reading culture, Farish said that the Humanities Council arranged storytelling sessions, in which folktales, along with drawings and artifacts associated with them, became a vehicle for acquiring vocabulary. The book, she described, as “a welcoming tool, a linguistic bridge between the two communities.” Farish said after listening carefully to a dozen or more stories, a committee of Bhutanese Nepali teachers and artists, in collaboration with the Humanities Council, selected Tiwari’s “The Story of
the Pumpkin.” Hari and Ambika Sharma, who last year moved from Laconia to Concord, helped to construct a narrative suited to bilingual presentation from Tiwari’s tale. Tiwari’s close neighbor, Rai was chosen to illustrate the book. Like Tiwari, he too grew up working on a farm in the hills of southern Bhutan. He said that he drew on his memories of terraces of rice, millet and barley as well as the pumpkin patch, to paint the scenes that grace the book. As a child Rai went without so much as a pencil, but was given one by a teacher when he reached a refugee camp in Nepal in 1990. At 13 he earned enough to buy crayons and, after selling some pictures, bought water colors. At the ESOL class, Rai drew the pictures his classmates matched to words. The story tells of a magic pumpkin, grown on a small farm where it helps the farmer and his wife with their chores. When the pumpkin reaches maturity, he leaves the farm to find a wife and, after conjuring a tribute of 300 horses, 300 elephants and 300 people, weds one of six princesses. Returning from their honeymoon, the pumpkin offers to pick the princess a mango to quench her thirst, but it jumped to the ground, it shattered, revealing a handsome young man inside. The king took the couple into the royal household, but theater princesses envied their married sister and one betrayed her in a vain attempt to take her place. The treachery was discovered, the wicked sister banished and the man who was a pumpkin, his royal bride and their child “spent their remaining lives happily and joyfully.” Farish said that many of the refugees found that with its mix of magic, transformation, terror and tension, the story reflected their own experience of leaving their homes amid the hills, valleys and rivers in the shadow of the Himalayas, enduring the rigors of refugee camps and making new lives in the United States. With support from the McIninich Foundation, Lucia Ewing and Kathy and Bill Gilley, the Humanities Council will distribute the book to every public library, selected schools and all Bhutanese Nepali families. “The Story of the Pumpkin” will be the centerpiece of the Folktale Festival hosted by the Humanities Council at the William B. Cashin Senior Activity Center at 15 Douglas Street in Manchester on Friday, August 17, beginning at 5:30 p.m. Those planning to attend should RSVP to 224-4071 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Shea-Porter brings top Democrat on Ryan’s Budget Committee to Laconia to blast Republican plans BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — Former congresswoman Carol SheaPorter of Rochester, who is seeking to recapture her seat in the 1st Congressional District, was joined here by Congressman Chris Van Hollen of Maryland yesterday in taking aim at the fiscal and economic policies touted by the Republican ticket of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. Shea-Porter said that the choice of Ryan, the author of a budget plan she called “extremist,” has posed the overriding question of this year’s election — “whose side are you on — the millionaires or the middle class? “You can’t just kick people to the curb in this country, “ she added. “That’s not who we are.” As the ranking Democrat on the House Budget Committee, which Ryan chairs, Van Hollen is not only his counterpart but also a colleague of Frank Guinta, the Manchester Republican who ousted Shea-Porter two years ago. Van Hollen said that Ryan’s budget plan, which Romney described as “marvelous,” would further lower taxes for the most affluent Americans and add to the tax burdens of the middle class while increasing the cost of health care to seniors by undermining Medicare. Van Hollen said that President Bush paid for the last round of tax cuts for the wealthy by borrowing, but with both the federal deficit and national debt at unprecedented levels the tax reductions Romney and Ryan propose must be offset by eliminating the deductions that benefit the middle class. “Once you say you’re not going to ask the most wealthy to pay a penny more and instead promise to cut their taxes,” he said, “everyone else will have to pay more.” Turning to the economy, Van Hollen said that Romney and Ryan were “doubling down on trickle down economics,” insisting “it’s no longer a theory. We had a real world experiment during the Bush RECOVERY from page 2 The U.S. economy has other problems, too. Europe’s troubles have undermined consumer and business confidence on both sides of the Atlantic. And the deeply divided U.S. political system has delivered

Administration.” Far from generating more employment and higher incomes, he said “lower taxes produced fewer jobs and more debt.” Shea-Porter emphasized that “Frank Guinta has voted in lock-step with Paul Ryan.” She dismissed the claims of Ryan and Guinta that they seek a responsible approach to reducing the deficit and debt. Noting that both have pledged not to increase any tax, she declared “you can’t have an adult conversation about addressing our fiscal problems if you take that pledge.” The appearance by Shea-Porter and Van Hollen, who campaigned for New Hampshire congressional candidates in the last election, came amid a week when Democrats, not least President Obama himself, pilloried Republican fiscal and economic plans across the country.
growth-chilling uncertainty. The AP compared nine economic recoveries since the end of World War II that lasted at least three years. A 10th recovery that ran from 1945 to 1948 was not included because the statistics from that period aren’t comprehensive, although the available data show that hiring was robust. There were two short-lived recoveries — 24 months and 12 months — after the recessions of 1957-58 and 1980.

Red Sox boss says players didn’t ask for Valentine’s head BOSTON (AP) — None of the Boston Red Sox players in a series of meetings with the team’s top brass called for manager Bobby Valentine to be replaced, owner John Henry said Wednesday. Henry issued a statement one day after Yahoo! Sports reported that several players met with him and team president Larry Lucchino in New York on July 27 to complain about Valentine’s handling of the team. Chairman Tom Werner was also at the meeting. Henry said he called the meeting, and it “quickly went to the point — what do we need to do to turn things around?” “No one in that meeting at any time took the position that Bobby should be or needed to be replaced,” Henry wrote. Henry said players took responsibility for the team’s performance; the Red Sox were 57-60, 12½ games out of first place in the AL East, heading into Wednesday night’s game in Baltimore against the Orioles. “They weren’t blaming injuries or anyone but themselves,” Henry wrote. “At the same time they openly spoke about what could improve in addition to their play. They made substantive points. We addressed those points.” Valentine also declined to point fingers. “Personally, I think we’re in it together,” he said. “I think we’re going to get hot.” Henry said he called a similar meeting “about this time eight years ago,” a reference to the 2004 season in which the Red Sox won the World Series for first time in 86 years. This time, the meeting was divided up into three parts, Henry said, “separating
Red Sox lose again, 5-3
BALTIMORE (AP) — For five innings, the Baltimore Orioles couldn’t muster a single hit against Boston right-hander Aaron Cook. When the Orioles got their third look at the sinkerballer, things changed in a hurry. Baltimore sent 10 batters to the plate during a five-run sixth and beat the Red Sox 5-3 Wednesday night to move a game ahead of Tampa Bay for the top AL wild-card spot. The Orioles trailed 2-0 before rallying against Cook, who fueled the uprising with a throwing error on a potential inning-ending, double-play comebacker. The miscue led to three unearned runs and saddled Cook (3-6) with his fourth loss in five starts. “When you get the ground ball you have to cash in see next page

THEFT from page one said the maintenance building sees use by crews who maintain the grounds. “There’s people in and out of there on a fairly regular basis.” The property is also patrolled by city police. “This was a high-value burglary,” Canfield said. In addition to the copper, tools and truck, also reported missing was a large ring of keys, the loss of which adds considerably to the cost of the thefts. “They had to go back and change all the locks in all the buildings,” said Canfield.

groups so as to have frank discussions about what was wrong.” Henry also complained in his statement about the details of the meeting going public. “I understand that when the team isn’t playing up to our standards that issues are going to be sensationalized,” he wrote. “But what is important for Red Sox fans to know is that ownership, players and all staff especially Bobby Valentine are determined to turn around what has thus far been an unacceptable, failed season. We are all on the same page in that regard and will not waver.” Valentine also said he regretted that details had gone public, but he said that the controversy hasn’t weighed on him. “If we were 10 games over .500 and in first place, he wouldn’t have to make any statements,” the manager said. Valentine was hired last offseason to replace Terry Francona, who was let go after the team went 7-20 in September to blow what had seemed like a certain playoff berth. Valentine said he wanted to change the culture of a clubhouse where players ate fried chicken and drank beer during games, rather than sitting in the dugout to support their teammates. Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz defended the manager. “He does his job,” Buchholz said. “When something goes wrong, somebody has to be blamed for it and it’s usually us. ... He’s doing a good job. It’s a game, man, it doesn’t always work.” Valentine said he planned to be back in 2013. “And ‘14 and ‘15,” he said. “That’s what I’m hoping.”

Felix Hernandez tosses perfect game for Seattle SEATTLE (AP) — His arms outstretched to the sky, about to be swallowed by anxious teammates that ignored him for most of nine innings, Felix Hernandez finally conquered the pursuit of perfection he’s chased since his debut as a baby-faced 19-yearold with uncontrollable curly hair and a hat that never sat straight. No more nights of wondering whether this would be the moment Hernandez twirled a historic gem. King Felix finally has his crowning achievement. “It was always in my mind, every game. ‘I need to throw a perfect game.’ For every pitcher I think it’s in their mind,” Hernandez said. “Today it happened and it’s something special. I don’t have any words to explain this. This is pretty amazing. It doesn’t happen every day.” Hernandez pitched the Seattle Mariners’ first perfect game and the 23rd in baseball history, overpowering the Tampa Bay Rays in a brilliant 1-0 victory Wednesday. The 2010 AL Cy Young Award winner has never hid his desire for pitching perfection. For a franchise on its way to an 11th straight season without a playoff appearance, Hernandez is the one constant keeping fans interested in Mariners baseball. He’s revered in the Pacific Northwest, not only for his performance on the mound, but for his willingness to stay. When he could have waited and sought from preceding page there,” said Boston manager Bobby Valentine, who was ejected in the eighth. “We’re in the dugout if he makes the play.” Cook allowed only a pair of walks through the first five innings and got 13 of 15 outs on grounders. The first out in the sixth also came on a groundball, and then the trouble began. Nick Markakis walked and J.J. Hardy lined a single to left. Nate McLouth hit an RBI single, and with runners on the corners Jones hit a bouncer to Cook, who threw wildly to second as Hardy scored the tying run. “It’s a play I’ve made a 100 times,” Cook said. “I just didn’t get my feet set. We lost because I made an error.” Matt Wieters put the Orioles in front and chased Cook with an opposite-field, ground-rule double to left. Andrew Miller got Chris Davis to hit a grounder to drawn-in second baseman Dustin Pedroia, who threw home. Jones lowered his left shoulder and ran hard into catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who applied the tag for the second out. Mark Reynolds followed with a two-run double off Junichi Tazawa for a 5-2 lead, and that was enough to propel the Orioles (64-53) to their ninth win in 11 games. Baltimore is alone in second place in the AL East

a bigger payday elsewhere, Hernandez signed an extension in 2010 that will keep him in Seattle through the 2014 season. So when the “King’s Court” of yellow-shirted fans in the left-field corner began chanting “Let’s Go Felix!” to start the eighth inning, it spread through the entire stadium. The crescendo of screams and yells finally reached its pinnacle at 3:02 p.m. PDT when Hernandez threw a called third strike past Sean Rodriguez to ignite the celebration. Riding down in a crowded elevator after the game, Seattle general manager Jack Zduriencik jokingly held his cellphone to his ear and said “no, we’re not trading Felix.” “It almost seems like a matter of time before this happens,” Seattle catcher John Jaso said. “A little dribbler here or something it’s ruined, but his competitive attitude and competitive mind he brings out to the mound each time he pitches, you know you have a guy out there who is going to give you a chance to win.” It was the third perfect game in baseball this season — a first — joining gems by Chicago’s Philip Humber against the Mariners in April and San Francisco’s Matt Cain versus Houston in June. More than half of all perfectos — 12 — have come in the last 25 seasons.
and making a run at the postseason, but manager Buck Showalter says it’s too early to get excited. Rookie Miguel Gonzalez (5-2) allowed two runs and six hits in six innings for the Orioles and Jim Johnson worked the ninth for his 35th save in 38 tries. The game ended with rookie third baseman Manny Machado making a diving stab of Nick Punto’s liner down the line. Carl Crawford had two RBIs for the Red Sox, who have lost six of eight to fall four games under .500 (57-61) for the first time since May 13. Cleanup hitter Adrian Gonzalez and Valentine were both ejected in the eighth inning for arguing with home plate umpire Mike Everitt. Both contended that Orioles reliever Pedro Strop threw a quick pitch to Gonzalez, who bounced out to second. “I wasn’t even set,” Gonzalez said. “I was just sitting there waiting for him to come set so I can get into my stance. We’re trying to win a game. I’m the leadoff hitter, down two runs, trying to get on base.” Crawford got Boston to 5-3 in the seventh with a run-scoring groundout, but Boston went down in order in the eighth and ninth. The Red Sox are 3-8 against Baltimore this season and have lost five of the past six series between the teams dating to last season.

Franklin says ‘Bye Bye Birdie’ with style last two weekends of August FRANKLIN — During the last two weekends of August, for six performances, Franklin Footlight Theatre will light up the venerable Franklin Opera House with the smash family musical comedy Bye Bye Birdie. Set in the early 1960’s with rock and roll all the rage, this vivacious spoof tracks the lives of Albert, a young talent agent with an idea to score a publicity coup for his rock star client, Conrad Birdie, who is about to be inducted in the army, and the MacAfee’s, a typical American family with a teenage daughter with stars in her eyes and a musical fever burning in her soul. Albert has one last shot at making a lasting impression with Conrad’s fans, and dreams up a promotion involving a local girl, a kiss, and the Ed Sullivan Show, forever changing the lives of everyone involved. With such memo-
rable songs as Put on a Happy Face, One Boy, and A Lot of Livin’ To Do, and enough bounding energy to lift the roof off, this show is sure to delight audiences of young and old alike. Under the experienced tutelage of Directors Jule Finley and Matt Potter (with Jule also in the role of choreographer) the cast of fifty plus brings to life a time now only the stuff of which nostalgia is made. Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. every night of August 23-25, and August 30, 31, and September 1, with tickets available online at www.franklinoperahouse.org or at the door. Prices are $14 for students and seniors, $16 for adults.

Page 20 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, August 16, 2012
Dear Annie: Many years ago, my husband, “Sam,” and I divorced. I started seeing someone else and became pregnant. That man left me, saying he didn’t want more children. Sam and I began dating again, and he said we could remarry if his name went on the baby’s birth certificate. The biological father didn’t care, so I agreed. Three months after the baby was born, Sam and I married again. That was 13 years ago. The problem is, sometimes Sam and I will argue, and he’ll say, “Just take your daughter and get out,” and other hurtful things indicating he’s not her real father and so there’s nothing to tie us together. I’m worried that our daughter will find out about her parentage and be hurt. Should we tell her about her biological father? I know her bio dad recently got out of prison after a year’s sentence for child molestation. I don’t know where he’s living, but I don’t really want him around my daughter. Any suggestions? -- Living a Lie Dear Living: The biological father no longer has any claim on your daughter. He gave up his rights. Your daughter is old enough to know about her background, although due to the particular circumstances, we suggest you first discuss it with a therapist who specializes in such issues. It would help to bring Sam into the sessions, as well, because his comments are not only reprehensible, but could cause all kinds of repercussions in his relationship with his daughter. He may be too angry with you during these arguments to fully realize how much he can hurt this child. Dear Annie: Two of our closest friends are getting a divorce. We are godparents to their adorable and sweet 9-yearold child. This couple wants to cause as little disruption as possible
to their child’s home environment. They plan to rent a nearby house, and the parents will swap living there so the child gets to stay in the original home. Annie, I’m sure they’re not the first to think of this arrangement, even though it’s new to us. As disruptive as a divorce is, would this add a sense of security for the child as opposed to sending her off to the estranged parent’s house for a short period of time as is commonly done? -- Puzzled in Florida Dear Puzzled: Quite a few parents have this arrangement, whereby the children stay in the home while the parents trade a rental space, or in some cases, both parents have their own place. While children are resilient and can adjust to almost any living situation, we suspect it is easier if they don’t have to pack up every weekend. It also lessens the stigma for the non-custodial parent whose residence is “Dad’s place” or “Mom’s house” but not “home.” Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Washington,” who said her feelings for her husband are completely gone. Many Catholic dioceses have weekend programs for married couples, and other denominations may have similar programs. Our diocese offers Marriage Encounter to help a couple rediscover the spark. The program is for those whose marriage is basically OK but could be better. The other program is Retrouvaille, a French word meaning “rediscovery.” It helps heal problems in a troubled marriage by reopening communication and providing tools that can make a difference. It’s for those who feel lost, alone or bored, or are constantly fighting, arguing or thinking about separating. In neither case does the couple have to be Catholic, although they should be married. -- Father B.

DAILY CROSSWORD TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES

by Darby Conley
By Holiday Mathis talent extends beyond what you’re comfortable doing. Just because you’re not an expert doesn’t mean you won’t do the best job. If there’s no harm in trying, go for it! SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When old resentments surface, you may wonder what it’s going to take to make them go away forever. Each time you forgive, the hurt dissolves a little more. Eventually, it will be gone. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Before you leap, aim at a soft landing place. If you don’t have time to look for such a thing before you leap, you’ll still scramble to safety, but it won’t be graceful. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The ones you look up to need you, too. You don’t understand the full extent of it, and you may not for many years, but you can trust that your interactions matter immensely. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Comparing your relationships will only drain your personal power. The attachments you form don’t have to be like everyone else’s to be valid, meaningful and just right for you. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 16). You’ll love and be loved. What could be better? Matters of responsibility lead to professional success. Whatever you dislike, handle it first and get it over with. Paradoxically, you will reach Easy Street because you’re willing to do what’s hard. December brings a spotlight. Financial luck is strongest in November and June. Aries and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 19, 3, 22, 48 and 6.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). No matter how busy you get, your creative whims are still important. They connect you with your heart. And now you could follow your muse to personal and financial rewards. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It’s a fine time to plot your next professional move. Consider putting ideals over income. This will make you happy, and when you’re happy, you’ll either earn more or do more with what you earn. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Sometimes the show makes the show, and sometimes the audience makes the show. Today involves a team effort between performer and onlooker, each feeding a need for the other. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Procrastination only delays the inevitable. Steel yourself, and fulfill the obligation before you. Your weekend starts the moment you get it over with. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It’s not just you; the heat has been getting to everyone. Don’t let your temper flare out of control in the face of summertime frustration. Keeping physically cool will help you keep your mental cool. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Someone in your neighborhood is in need of a helping hand, but is too proud to ask. Keep your awareness open. You’ll sense the silent need and offer a hand. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Too many evenings out and on the run have left you feeling frazzled. Time to unplug, go to the grocery store and prepare a good home-cooked meal for yourself and your loved ones. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Thursday, Aug. 16, the 229th day of 2012. There are 137 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Aug. 16, 1962, The Beatles fired their original drummer, Pete Best, replacing him with Ringo Starr. On this date: In 1777, American forces won the Revolutionary War Battle of Bennington. In 1812, Detroit fell to British and Indian forces in the War of 1812. In 1861, President Abraham Lincoln issued Proclamation 86, which prohibited the states of the Union from engaging in commercial trade with states in rebellion — i.e., the Confederacy. In 1858, a telegraphed message from Britain’s Queen Victoria to President James Buchanan was transmitted over the recently laid trans-Atlantic cable. In 1920, Ray Chapman of the Cleveland Indians was struck in the head by a pitch thrown by Carl Mays of the New York Yankees; Chapman died the following morning. In 1937, the American Federation of Radio Artists was chartered. In 1948, baseball legend Babe Ruth died in New York at age 53. In 1954, Sports Illustrated was first published by Time Inc. In 1956, Adlai E. Stevenson was nominated for president at the Democratic national convention in Chicago. In 1977, Elvis Presley died at his Graceland estate in Memphis, Tenn., at age 42. In 1987, 156 people were killed when Northwest Airlines Flight 255 crashed while trying to take off from Detroit; the sole survivor was 4-yearold Cecelia Cichan (SHEE’-an). People worldwide began a two-day celebration of the “harmonic convergence,” which heralded what believers called the start of a new, purer age of humankind. In 1991, Pope John Paul II began the first-ever papal visit to Hungary. One year ago: Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany and French President Nicolas Sarkozy, meeting in Paris, called for greater economic discipline and unity among European nations but declined to take immediate financial measures. Today’s Birthdays: Actress Ann Blyth is 84. Sportscaster Frank Gifford is 82. Singer Eydie Gorme is 81. Actor Gary Clarke is 79. Actress Julie Newmar is 79. Actor John Standing is 78. College Football Hall of Famer and NFL player Bill Glass is 77. Actress Anita Gillette is 76. Actress Carole Shelley is 73. Country singer Billy Joe Shaver is 73. Movie director Bruce Beresford is 72. Actress Lesley Ann Warren is 66. Actor Reginald VelJohnson is 60. Rhythm-and-blues singer J.T. Taylor is 59. Movie director James Cameron is 58. Actor Jeff Perry is 57. Actress Laura Innes is 55. Singer Madonna is 54. Actress Angela Bassett is 54. Actor Timothy Hutton is 52. Actor Steve Carell is 50. Former tennis player Jimmy Arias is 48. Actor-singer Donovan Leitch is 45. Actor Andy Milder is 44. Actor Seth Peterson is 42. Country singer Emily Robison is 40. Actor George Stults is 37. Singer Vanessa Carlton is 32.

LACONIA — Pitman’s Freight Room presents its “Blues and Barbecue Sunday” August 19 at 4 p.m. The air-conditioned Freight Room, located in the train yard of the old Laconia Train Station, complete with caboose, will be transformed into an authentic old South Juke Joint, where people will spend the afternoon moving to the music and tasting the smoky barbecue offerings from the charcoal grill. Tony Sarno will be bringing his rhythmic brand of guitar-driven Blues to the stage, along with double drummers Dana Bonardi and Bill Joyner, and Al Hospers and Nate Weaver on bass and guitar, respectively. Sarno recorded his first album in Memphis, Tennessee for Icehouse Records, his other albums in Nashville for Marconi and Bandwidth Records, and has spent much of his professional life in the Southern United States. Of “Blues and Barbecue Sunday” he says “I want to create the type of event here that only seems to happen south of the MasonDixon line”. All proceeds from the barbecue, and a portion of the proceeds from the entire event will go to the Wounded Warrior Project. The Wounded Warrior Project helps thousands of injured warriors returning home from the current conflicts, and provides assistance to their families. Direct donations may be made at www.woundedwarriorproject.org Pitman’s freight Room is located at 94 New Salem St. Laconia. Admission is $10. $8 for U.S. Military current or Retired. The event is BYOB. For more details call 527-0043
