LACONIA — After hosting a meeting with abutters and neighbors of the High School last night, School Superintendent Bob Champlin said that he was “very pleased” that the issues raised about the expan-

sion of the Huot Regional Technical Education Center and reconstruction of the athletic playing fields by nearly four dozen residents before the Planning Board last week have been “resolved.” The project includes construction of 32,000-square foot

addition to the high school, relocation of the football field and reconfiguration of Bobotas Field. When the plan was presented to the Planning Board, neighbors expressed concerns about stormwater runoff, public safety and traffic patterns. Several feared that relocating the

football field and redeveloping Bobotas Field would result in athletes using the fields and fans attending games to cross over their properties adjacent to the new complex. The School Board held several sparsely attended public see NEIGHBORS page 12

One of the many ways that the Laconia School District hopes to raise $1-million in private funds to help fund the construction of a new athletic facility is by soliciting sponsors of granite steps.

Romney says he’s never paid less than 13% of income in taxes GREER, S.C. (AP) — Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney declared Thursday he has paid at least 13 percent of his income in federal taxes every year for the past decade, offering that new detail while still decrying a “small-minded” fascination over returns he will not release. President Barack Obama’s campaign shot back in doubt: “Prove it.” Campaigning separately, Romney and running mate Paul Ryan also scrambled to explain their views on overhauling Medicare, the health care program relied on by millions of seniors. Romney, the former company CEO, set up a whiteboard to make his case with a marker, while lawmaker Ryan resorted to congressional process language to explain why his budget plan includes the same $700 billion Medicare cut that he and

Romney are assailing Obama for endorsing. Essentially, Ryan said, he had to do it because Obama did it first. Politically, both topics tie into major elements of the presidential race less than three months before the election: how well the candidates relate to the daily concerns and to the life circumstances of typical voters. Democrats are using the tax issue to raise doubts about Romney’s trustworthiness — or, as Republicans contend, to distract from a weak economic recovery under Obama. Romney’s comments in South Carolina — at a news conference designed to focus on Medicare — showed that he remains sensitive to criticism of his tax payments but still is determined to release no more than two years of records despite contrary advice from some prominent Republicans.

Government says all baby boomers should get tested for hepatitis C

Black Hawk crash kills 7 Americans & 4 Afghans

ATLANTA (AP) — All baby boomers should get a one-time blood test to learn if they have the liverdestroying hepatitis C virus, U.S. health officials said Thursday. It can take decades for the blood-borne virus to cause liver damage and symptoms to emerge, so many people don’t know they’re harboring it. Baby boomers account for about two-thirds of the estimated 3.2 million infected Americans. More than 15,000 Americans die each year from hepatitis C-related illnesses and the number has been growing, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “Unless we take action, we project deaths will increase substantially,” said CDC Director Dr. Thomas Frieden, in a call with reporters. Hepatitis C virus is most commonly spread today through sharing needles to inject drugs. Before widespread screening of blood donations began in 1992, it was also spread through blood transfusions. The virus can gradually scar the liver and lead to cirrhosis or liver cancer, and is the leading cause of liver transplant. It can trigger damage in other parts of the body, as well. It’s possible some people were infected in ways other than dirty needles or long-ago blood transfusions. Some experts say tattoos, piercings, shared razor blades and toothbrushes, manicures and see HEPATITIS page 14

2 Louisiana sheriff’s deputies dead, 2 hurt in shootout

LAPLACE, La. (AP) — Two sheriff’s deputies in Louisiana were shot to death and two others were injured in an early morning shootout west of New Orleans, authorities said Thursday. Five people — both male and female — are in custody, and two of them are hospitalized, authorities said. They said both wounded deputies and both wounded suspects are expected to survive. Police would not identify the suspects, say when they might do so, or give any details about the number of weapons used. No charges had been filed

Earlier, Tregre said tearfully that the incident started about 5:30 a.m., when a gunman opened fire for unknown reasons on a deputy working an offduty job along a highway that connects U.S. Highway 61 with the busy industrial corridor along the Mississippi River. That deputy was wounded. see LOUISIANA page 4

still being investigated. The Black Hawk was operating in support of an ongoing assault on the ground but initial indications were that it was not shot down, according to U.S. officials who spoke anonymously because the investigation was continuing. Taliban spokesman Qari Yousef Ahmadi said insurgent fighters struck the helicopter in Kandahar province on Thursday morning. He declined to give further details in a phone call with The Associated Press. The Kandahar provincial government backed the Taliban claim.

The Obama campaign has aired an ad that, without evidence, raises the prospect that Romney paid no taxes some years. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., elevated that suggestion by claiming, also without proof, that an anonymous source told him Romney had not paid taxes for 10 years. “I did go back and look at my taxes and over the past 10 years I never paid less than 13 percent,” Romney told reporters after he landed in South Carolina for a fundraising event. “I think the most recent year is 13.6 or something like that. So I paid taxes every single year.” Aides later said Romney meant to say 13.9 percent, the amount he already disclosed for his 2010 federal return.

N.H.’s Local Government Center ordered to refund $50 million to cities & towns

CONCORD (AP) — A nonprofit organization that manages health insurance pools for public workers and retirees in New Hampshire has been ordered to refund more than $50 million to cities and towns. Thursday’s ruling against the Local Government Center followed a two-week administrative hearing in May initiated by the state Bureau of Securities Regulation. In the 81-page order, hearing officer Donald Mitchell said the center violated state law by improperly collecting and retaining unnecessary surplus funds, improperly transferring assets and spending money for purposes beyond what is allowed by law. Officials from the center had argued that it returned surpluses through the years in the form of rate reductions, saying communities preferred to have stability rather than get a check one year, and see a rate spike the next. But Mitchell described

LGC’s conduct as an “insult” that diminished the earnings and surpluses that should have been returned to the public employees. The $50 million refund is in addition to the $30 million previously negotiated by the securities bureau. The center also was ordered to reorganize within 90 days or face losing its tax exempt status and exemption from insurance regulations. Mitchell said the center had been acting essentially as a business conglomerate, with a single board of directors for multiple pooled management programs instead of having independent boards for each as required by law. “It does not matter whether it was through ignorance, poor counsel, poor consultant advice or design that the LGC, Inc. and its entities did what they did,” Mitchell wrote. “By abolishing each program’s respective board and substituting the LGC, Inc.

board of directors, the political subdivision members of each pooled risk management program were deprived of the governance previously maintained for their benefit.” In a statement, the LGC said it was pleased that allegations against its executive director and a board member were dismissed. “We are, however, disappointed Hearing Officer Mitchell did not agree that our Board of Directors has discretion to make decisions in running the risk pools in an efficient manner and in setting prudent, conservative reserves,” it said. “After hearing extensive testimony from actuaries and risk pool experts it is hard to understand how he could question the soundness of our Board’s actions.” The LGC has 30 days to file a request for reconsideration of the decision. It said it is considering its options.

ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) — The Vermont couple charged with killing a St. Johnsbury teacher and dumping her naked body in the Connecticut River have written letters to each other in jail discussing the crime, a police affidavit filed in the case says. Patricia Prue and Allen Prue wrote numerous letters to each other that were collected by police after a search of Allen Prue’s jail cell, police say. The pair is accused of strangling and beating 33-year-old Melissa Jenkins, after luring her out of her house with a ruse about a broken down car in March. Jen-

kins’ SUV was found idling on her road with her 2-year-old son inside. An affidavit filed July 26, requesting a search of Allen Prue’s cell, does not go into the particulars of the correspondence, but describes the content in general. “I learned that since Patricia Prue and Allen Prue have been in jail, they have written letters back and forth to each other at which time they discussed and made mention of the murder of Jenkins,” Vermont State Police Det. Sgt. Kelley Clark said in the affida-

vit accompanying the request to search Allen Prue’s cell at the Northwest Correctional Facility. Clark said the assistant superintendent at the Chittenden County Regional Correction Center, where Patricia Prue is jailed, told police that corrections officers read the incoming and outgoing mail of inmates and noticed letters between the Prues. Similarly, in May, police said they found a rippedup note that Patricia Prue wrote in jail with the phrases “we picked her because,” ‘’while he beat her,” see COUPLE page 4

Alleged burglar turns himself in; Tilton man now back in prison for parole violation By Gail OBer

LACONIA — The Tilton man who fled from Northfield Police after allegedly assaulting a police officer and burglarizing two homes, turned himself into yesterday morning to a probation officer at the Belknap County Jail. Northfield Lt. John Raffaelly said that he received a phone call from the jail telling him Fred Fiske, 32, of 251 Main St. in Tilton was in their custody. He had been on the run for six days. “He refused to tell me where he’d been only that he’d been ‘hunkered down,’” said Raffaelly. Raffaelly said he picked Fiske up from the jail and took him to the Northfield Police Department for processing before taking him to the 6th Circuit Court, Franklin Division where at 3 p.m. yesterday Judge Edward “Ned” Gordon ordered him held on $25,000 cash bail. Fiske will spend a few days in Merrimack County Jail, said Raffaelly, before he is returned to the N.H. State Prison. Raffaelly said he was paroled from prison on February 13 where he had been incarcerated for what Raffaelly said was burglary and theft. “His arrest record is 28 pages long,” Raffaelly said,

adding Fiske has been in and out of jail since 1998. Fiske faces five new charges out of Northfield — two counts of burglary, one count of receiving stolen property, one count of possession of a controlled drug, one count of assault on a police officer and one count of resisting arrest. Police affidavits obtained last week from the court for Fiske’s girlfriend, Emily Bundy, 28, also of 251 Main St. in Tilton, Fred Fiske said a man and a woman, later (Northfield Police photo) identified as Fiske and Bundy, went to a home on Cross Mill Road. Police said Bundy allegedly knocked on the woman’s door to see if anyone was home. The homeowner, who was in her bedroom, didn’t answer the door, but moments later heard her screen door shut. She left her bedroom and allegedly saw Fiske standing in her living room. He ran out of the house and the homeowner told police she saw Fiske and Bundy run down the road.

Police, including Raffaelly, went along the Winnipesaukee River Trail and saw the two. When confronted, Fiske ran and Raffaelly chased him. Raffaelly said as he caught up to Fiske, Fiske’s arm hit him in the face. Raffaelly was able to grab Fiske’s backpack and deploy his Taser but only one prong hit him. Fiske fled into the woods. Bundy was taken into custody without further incident but initially refused to cooperate with police. Inside Fiske’s backpack, police said they found a diamond ring worth about $8,000, some prescription pills and a Rolex watch. While police were chasing Fiske and Bundy, a resident of nearby Hodgdon Road called police to report a burglary that had just occurred at his home. The victim came to the police station and identified the diamond ring and the prescription drugs as his. Bundy was orderd held last week on $20,000 cash bail. Raffaelly said Fiske appeared in court yesterday without a lawyer and Gordon ordered a second bail hearing for him within a few weeks.

LOUISIANA from page 2 Tregre said someone called deputies with a description of a car fleeing the scene, and officers tracked it to a nearby mobile home park.

When officers found the car, they handcuffed a suspect outside a mobile home, then knocked on its door. Tregre said someone with a dog answered. “Another person exited that trailer with an assault

weapon and ambushed my two officers,” Tregre said. Two deputies were killed and a third was wounded. Two suspects were wounded in the shootout before officers subdued them, Tregre said. The slain deputies were identified as Brandon Nielsen, 34, and Jeremy Triche, 27. The wounded officers are Jason Triche, 30, and Michael Boyington, 33, identified as the first one shot. They were being treated at area hospitals but the extent of their injuries was not known. The Triches were related, Tregre said, though he did not know how. It remained unclear where Jason Triche was shot. Tregre said Nielson is survived by his wife and see next page

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

COUPLE from page 3 and “passed out.” Police say the Waterford couple planned the crime, buying a stun gun and prepaid cellphone and driving by Jenkins’ home and the dam in Barnet where police say they later dumped her body. Patricia Prue, 33, is charged with aggravated murder, accused of killing Jenkins during a sexual assault or attempted sexual assault. Allen Prue,

30, is charged with first-degree murder. Both have pleaded not guilty. In other developments, Patricia Prue’s attorney has asked to have her trial moved out of Caledonia County saying the extensive media coverage of the case makes it unlikely she will get a fair trial. Caledonia County State’s Attorney Lisa Warren has not yet responded to the request, but said the motion was premature since a date has not yet been set for the trial.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, August 17, 2012— Page 5

Change in state dispatching led to local fire departments responding to routine boat service calls By Mike Mortensen GILFORD — Fire departments around Lake Winnipesaukee have been called out to deal with more non-emergency boating incidents this summer than in past years. But state Marine Patrol and emergency communications officials say that newly implemented procedures should cut down on how often firefighters are called to give assistance to a boat that simply has a mechanical problem or is out of gas. “Yes there has been an increase in these kinds of calls going to fire departments,” said Jim Hayes, chief coordinator for Lakes Region Mutual Fire Aid which dispatches most fire departments and medical aid providers in the Lakes Region. “But the changes in handling (calls for service out on the lakes) should reduce part of the increase we’ve seen.” That increase prompted Gilford Fire Chief Steve Carrier to draw attention to the fact his department has dealt more with non-emergency boating incidents this summer on the state’s largest lake. Officials at the state level recognized the increase in call volume to local fire departments and have since changed the procedures for assessing and prioritizing calls involving boats. Capt. Tim Dunleavy, who heads Marine Patrol, said that when his agency was reorganized and became part of State Police, the dispatching service for boating calls was transferred to the State Police Dispatch Center in Concord. Until recently if a boater called to report a problem the State Police dispatcher would direct the boater to call 9-1-1. If the 9-1-1 operator determined

the incident was not a law enforcement issue, the appropriate fire department would be dispatched to respond. Now, calls related to boating incidents (even the ones that initially come into 9-1-1) will go to State Police where a dispatcher — most of the time a designated Marine Patrol dispatcher — will assess the level of urgency and notify a Marine Patrol officer to respond. Local fire departments will also be dispatched if the incident involves a fire or medical emergency. “For a long time boaters who got into trouble were accustomed to calling Marine Patrol directly,” Dunleavy said, noting that until spring of last year those calls were handled by dispatchers at the Marine Patrol headquarters in Glendale. Dunleavy disagrees with those who suggest the cutback in the number of Marine Patrol officers is responsible for the increase in calls to local firerescue departments. But he said that the smaller number of officers on patrol at any one time means that the time it will take an officer to respond to a call that does not involve human safety or damage to property will be greater. “The other (kinds of calls) we will respond to as we can,” he said. Of the 32 Marine Patrol officers on duty statewide this summer, 12 are assigned to cover Lake Winnipesaukee and Lake Winnisquam, said Dunleavy. Last year the agency had 52 officers, with about 18 assigned to the Winnipesaukee-Winnisquam beat. Some emergency service officials believe part of the problem is that some boaters rely on public safety agencies to come to their aid, regardless of the

nature of their predicament. “If you run out of gas or your car has a flat tire, you don’t call the fire department, you call AAA or a tow truck,” said Laconia Fire Chief Ken Erickson. “But there’s this sense that if they break down on the lakes, there’s automatically a perceived danger that doesn’t exist on land,” he added. Dunleavy said Marine Patrol does not hesitate to advise boaters to call private companies if their boat needs a tow or a jump-start or has run out of gas. “Sometimes we’ll ask a boater what marina they do business with and then offer to call the marina to send a boat to help them out,” he continued adding: “We’re not going to bother the fire department (unnecessarily).” But being adrift on the water does present concerns that simply do not exist on land. “If a boat is out of gas we have more things to think about,” said David Rivers, chief of operations for the Department of Safety’s Division of Emergency Services Communications which operates the 9-1-1 call center for the entire state. “Where’s that (disabled) boat going to drift? Disabled cars don’t sink,” he noted alluding to the possibility that a boat that has run out of gas could end up in treacherous waters. Dunleavy said that what at first seems like nothing more that carelessness or inattentiveness by a boater can easily become a safety hazard. “If you have a boat that has broken down in the middle of the night and they have no power for their (navigational) lights, there’s a risk that another boat could hit them because the other boater cannot see the disabled boat in the dark,” he explained.

The initial shooting occurred at a parking lot off Louisiana Highway 3217 used by workers in the industrial area about 20 miles west of New Orleans, near the line between St. Charles and St. John the Baptist parishes. A massive grain port also is nearby. There is heavy traffic in the area as shifts change at plants and port facilities. Bill Day, spokesman for Valero Energy Corp., said

one of the deputies was providing security for the off-site parking lot used by contractors working at the Valero St. Charles Refinery. Day said operations at the refinery had not been affected. Valero employees were being asked to report to work as normal, unless they park at the lot where the incident took place.

Choice of Ryan brings entitlement crisis center stage On the USS Wisconsin in Norfolk harbor, a coatless Mitt Romney named a tieless Paul Ryan as his vice presidential nominee. Romney’s choice was not much of a surprise after he told NBC’s Chuck Todd on Thursday that he wanted someone with a “vision for the country, that adds something to the political discourse about the direction of the country. I mean, I happen to believe this is a defining election for America, that we’re going to be voting for what kind of America we’re going to have.” This arguably describes some of the others mentioned as possible nominees, but it clearly fits Ryan. He doesn’t fit some of the standard criteria for vice president. He hasn’t won a statewide election, held an executive position or become wellknown nationally or even in much of Wisconsin. But more than anyone else, more even (as impolite as it is to say) than the putative presidential nominee, Ryan has set the course for the Republican Party for the past three years, both on policy and in politics. From his post as chairman of the House Budget Committee, he has made himself not just a plausible national nominee but a formidable one by advancing and arguing for major changes in entitlement policy. He has argued consistently that entitlement programs — Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid — are on an unsustainable trajectory. Left alone, they threaten to crowd out necessary government spending and throttle the private sector. Few public policy experts, on the center-left as well as the right, disagree. But many politicians, certainly those in the Obama White House, shy away from confronting the entitlement crisis. Better to demagogue your way through one more election cycle and kick the can down the road. What’s astonishing is that Ryan has persuaded his fellow Republicans to follow his lead. Almost all House and Senate Republicans have voted for his budget resolutions. And they have included his proposal to change Medicare, for those currently younger than 55, from the current fee-for-service system to premium support, in which recipients would choose from an array of insurers, with subsidies to low earners. Republicans rallied to the Ryan plan during the nomination contest. Newt Gingrich was lambasted for calling Ryan’s budget right-wing social engineering, while Romney over time moved to embrace the basic elements of Ryan’s budget and

Medicare reforms. Ryan campaigned enthusiastically for Romney in the Wisconsin primary, and there was clearly a rapport between these two number crunchers. Romney would defer to Ryan to answer and has made a point of staying in touch with him after clinching the nomination. As a number cruncher, Romney surely recognizes that Ryan knows federal budget policy about as well as anyone. And the sometimes politically tone-deaf Romney must admire Ryan’s ability, honed in hundreds of town meetings in his marginal congressional district, to explain his stances in a way that wins over ordinary voters. Naturally, Democrats have attacked the Ryan plan as gutting Medicare and have produced an ad showing Ryan shoving a wheelchairbound granny down a hill. They’re licking their chops at the prospect of running a Mediscare campaign against the Romney-Ryan ticket. But it’s not clear that the Mediscare tactic will work when the issue gains great visibility, as it will from Ryan’s selection. For Ryan and Romney can make the point — lost in the shuffle when this is a low-visibility issue — that their plan would leave the current Medicare system in place for current recipients and those who are 55 or older. Those who have made plans based on the present program could continue to rely on it. But they also can make the point that their reforms are necessary in order to make sure Medicare is sustainable in the long run. Polls show that many voters younger than 55 doubt that they ever will get the Medicare and Social Security benefits they’ve been promised. One more thing about Ryan, I think, appealed to Romney. He already has shown he cannot be intimidated by the most eminent opponent. Watch the video of Ryan’s five-minute evisceration of Obamacare at the president’s Blair House meeting. You can tell that Obama didn’t like it one bit. He’d better get used to it. Obama’s side is relying on trash-talking ads. Romney’s selection of Ryan shows he wants a debate on whether America should follow Obama on the road to a European-style welfare state.

LETTERS After 2 near catastrophic crashes, it’s time for the town to act To the editor, On August 9th, less than three months since the May 11th near catastrophic accident on Ossipee Park Road and Route 171 in Moultonborough, another fully loaded 80,000+ pound tractor trailer lost its brakes careening through the stop sign on Route 171, missing a house by less than 50 feet and ending up more than 200 feet in the woods. This latest crash was virtually identical to the May crash where another independent trucker, driving a fully loaded tractor-trailer carrying 18 tons of water bottles from the plant owned by CG Roxane, also crashed at the bottom of this steep mountain road. Both trucks reportedly lost their brakes, and were totally demolished with driver injuries. This accident, which is the latest of multiple trucks losing their brakes on the steep grades of this road, demonstrates a crying need for a safety improvements to address the problem of hundreds of independent trucks hauling bottled water from CG Roxane at all times of the year in all types of weather. CG Roxane has asserted that as the truckers are independent operators, it has no control over them. While this

may technically be true, the road, which was only recently rebuilt by the town, at a cost of well over a half a million dollars, remains unsafe for heavy trucking. As part of the approved site plan for the CG Roxane plant, the town retained the right to regulate truck traffic to ensure the public safety. After the May accident, I asked the Board of Selectmen (BOS) to require CG Roxane to construct a runaway truck ramp on their property adjacent to the road and establish some sort of truck brake inspection process. The board declined to take any action. The common sense solution is to require one or more runaway truck ramps to stop errant out of control trucks from crashing into oncoming traffic, vehicles on Route 171 that have the right of way and the house opposite the terminus of Ossipee Park Road. One would hope that with two near catastrophic crashes in less than three months, the town will finally utilize its authority to limit trucking until such time as the runaway ramp can be constructed to avoid the next truck taking out other vehicles, houses and potentially lives.

Why would you think men know more about creation than God? To the editor, In response to Bob Meade’s column of August 6 “The “God Particle 749”. I believe a mistake even many well meaning people make is to surrender to science that which is not science at all, but which in reality is theology. Seeking a particle believed to be needed to convert a gaseous substance into solid matter is an endeavor of science. Expounding on the Big Bang Theory is theology. Science became disentangled with religion and in particular with Aristotelianism in order to allow it to examine nature as it is in the present, observable, that we should learn of nature by experience and observation, unhindered by a philosophy that did not allow nature to be studied for what it is. Creation on the other hand is a matter of theology. Science overreaches it’s mandate when it projects itself into the indefinite past. Of a

If you are an atheist it makes sense to try to explain the creation apart from God. If you are a Christian or of a religious persuasion that believes in the Creator, why should we accept this encroachment and not expose it for what it is — atheistic theology, a bit of an oxymoron, but I believe it describes it well enough. Here’s the question. If you’re a Christian why should you think men who have studied nature should know more about the act of the Creation than God? Particularly when the driving force here are men who don’t believe in God. To compromise with them is only to give them an opportunity disparage the validity of the scriptures we hold in esteem. That’s a pretty high price for the the comfort of looking reasonable. If to disagree with them is to be so politically incorrect, so be it. John Demakowski

LETTERS Liberals like Biden can say whatever they want & it’s just OK

The list of Obama’s broken promises is as long as your arm

To the editor, Joe Biden is just a heartbeat away from being the leader of the free world. Really? While recently speaking to an audience that included hundreds of black people, he retorted, “They’re going to put y’all back in chains”. Next day, President Obama tells the nation that it’s okay regarding what he said because you know, it’s all about the context. Really? Seems a Democrat can strike the most obnoxious, racist sounding slap against the other side and oh gosh, what’s the big deal? A conservative would likely have been fired and sent to political purgatory for such an incendiary remark. Thirty-six year senator Joe Biden makes what he thinks is a seriocomic play on words and “planet liberal” gives him a high five. No matter that he sounds like Keith Olbermann imitating Bill Maher. Sort of like private Gomer Pyle imitating a tough talking deputy Barney Fife. I mean good grief what’s next, “your mother wears Army boots made in China and the rich fat cats made her do it”? Nothing could be finer than to hear clueless Joe bash Republicans in Carolina in the morning? Does he really think right of center America is that stupid? Apparently he does and let’s hope he continues to think that way because he’ll be fighting for our side and not even know it. Hey Joe, while you’re at it, invite Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid on the stage with you because they too seem to think the majority of the nation is made up of “spread the wealth” liberals. Okay, how’s about we all pay a little attention to just how high the media sets

To the editor, A couple weeks ago Nancy Parsons, in her letter, asked what I have against Obama. I wrote to the paper with a reply to her but apparently it didn’t go through so I will give a brief digested rerun of my answer, and thanks for asking Nancy. List of broken promises as long as your arm: 1. He promised to put all bills on the White House web site for five days before signing them. 2. To have congressional health care negotiations broadcast live on C-SPAN. 3. He promised to end earmarks. 4. To keep unemployment under 8-percent. 5. To close the detention center at Guantanamo Bay. 6. He promised to make peace with direct, no precondition talks with America’s most hate-filled enemies during his first year in office, ushering in a new era of global cooperation. 7. To end no-compete contracts with the government. 8. To disclose the names of all attend-

the bar for VP elect Paul Ryan versus the current VP. Which should make for one fascinating comparison since the bar is set so low for Biden that a double jointed Pygmy limbo rock dancer would slip a disc trying to go as low as he can go. Trust me, the bar for Paul Ryan will be set as high as an elephant’s eye. He would have been crucified had he made a comment anywhere near as wackado as Mr. Biden. Does anyone have any doubt that he will indeed get crucified for making remarks far less inflammatory. He will be slammed for creating class warfare while Joe Biden gets a ho hum cuz it’s just “ole Joe being Joe”. Just as the second in command utters into the ear of the leader of the free world, “BFD” (Balderdash for Democrats?). Yes, the Democrats and their modern day liberal brethren can say pretty much whatever they want and if it doesn’t sound right? Well, it was just taken out of context and it’s no big deal. The double standard nonsense that will be piercing our eardrums from the mainstream media (White House mouthpiece apparatus) over the next three months will be deafening and maddening. Their hypocritical, duplicitous behavior will crash up against the constitutional, conservative thrust of decency and common sense. The irony will be totally lost on the media and liberal intelligentsia. The modern day liberal motto must be delivered forth unabashedly — “one standard for me and another for thee”. Will the psyche of this ole curmudgeon survive intact until November 6th? I dearly hope so cuz I’ll be voting for some real R&R. Russ Wiles Tilton

Is it going to take someone getting killed before this is fixed? To the editor, Driving home the other day on Route 171, my husband and I came upon a police car and wreckers. Deep, and I mean deep, in the woods, is a tractor trailer that apparently crossed the road and had been stopped suddenly by a huge tree. Later on we find out that the driver had lost his breaks and could not stop. This is the second time this has happened in a matter of months. What is it going to take to have this situation corrected?

This truck could have hit the house that is right next to where he drove through. Is it going to take someone getting killed before this is fixed. Those people in the house could have been killed or injured. A car driving down that road could have his that truck or vice versa. Come on folks, wake up and do something soon before someone does die because of your stupidity. Barbara J. Perry Moultonborough

I enthusiastically support Ovide Lamontagne as next governor To the editor, As a retiring State Representative I want you to know that I enthusiastically support Ovide Lamontagne as our next governor. He has served the public for many years, and I have seen him in action, especially as the chairman of the state Board of Education. He supports an amendment to the New Hampshire Constitution to allow the state to give local communities control of their own school systems. Passing a constitutional amendment to overrule Part II, Article 83 would allow aid to be targeted to communities where the aid could most improve the schools. I was very disappointed when the House of Representatives voted against the constitutional amendment that would have been allowed the targeting of aid. Ovide has been and will be a champion for targeted aid and local control.

neighborhood. We were told to install filters to stop the polluting. It cost us something to do this, but our operation actually ran more efficiently after the filters were installed. Experts in the paper manufacturing industry tell me that the industry saved a tremendous amount of money when they started complying with the EPA laws. The billionaire Koch brothers who run large paper and oil refineries do not want to spend the money to meet EPA clean air and water regulations. They are cited as one of the worst industrial polluters in the country. They are behind this echo chamber of Fox News and Rush Limbaugh. They put out utter rubbish. How can anyone expect their kids to live in a better world if they vote to pollute it? Kent Warner

Also Ovide realizes that we must reign in spending but not at the price of our current retirees. He believes that the state needs to honor its commitments to our state employees after they finish their service to us. I believe he has the integrity to honor the state employees who have planned around their promised compensation. A twotiered system needs to be discussed and worked on. This path forward will keep our word to our long-term employees and keep from straining our budget by reforming our benefits system for state workers. Ovide is my candidate for our children’s education, for private-sector families, and candidate for the state workers. Please vote with me for Ovide on primary day, September 11th!

Can we expect our kids to live in better world if we vote to pollute it? To the editor, The supporters of the Tea Party must be living in an echo chamber. They keep hearing the same conservative propaganda over and over until they believe it; true or not. When they believe that regulations are onerous intrusions on a business that prevents them earning big profits they are overlooking some historical facts. General Electric dumped poisonous PCBs into the Hudson river for many years as they made transformers. Almost all the fish living in the river were killed. In addition, people living along the river suffered from exposure to this poison. Was it wrong for the government to stop GE and force them to clean up the river? GE is still making transformers and the last I heard was making very good profits. Years ago I took over and ran a plastic converting factory that was pump-

ees at closed White House meetings. 9. To create a new era of bipartisan cooperation in all matters. There are more but you get the idea. Then there is our national debt closing in on $16-trillion. His foreign policy failures, his economic policy failures, his class warfare, and the racial divide he and his crew have broadened to nearly 1965 levels as he and you — yes, you Nancy — play the race card at every opportunity. Now I and most conservatives opposed both John Kerry and Al Gore, who’s policy’s mirrored Obama’s, but you failed to call it race based then. Only when Obama became a candidate did the left pull that charge out of their hats. Right now the big Obama adds are saying Romney is hiding something by not releasing his tax returns. Now Obama has had all his records, collage transcripts and everything else sealed for years. So that’s what I have against Obama, Nancy. My question to you is why are you still supporting him and his failed presidency given all this? Steve Earle Hill

LETTERS Greemore’s State School comments are ill-timed & uninformed

Today’s GOP isn’t mindful of the poor, the elderly & the sick

To the editor, Recent suggestions by Rep. Bob Greemore about Belknap County’s role in the acquisition of the Laconia State School property have us wondering where he has been during the past couple of years of hearings, meetings and negotiations on this subject. His recent suggestion that the “book value” of $11-million should be the sales price simply ignores all the data provided to the Commission to Evaluate the Long Term Uses of the Lakes Region Facility (appointed by the governor), appraisers, former Mayor Matt Lahey and others. While the origins of that $11-million figure remain elusive, there is no question about the fact that the current fair market appraisal for this land is $2.16-million, exactly what the City of Laconia has offered. There is also no question that the commission found no potential use by the state for this property. The main buildings contain lead, PCBs and asbestos which pose a substantial cost to becoming habitable. Commissioner Wrenn of the Department of Corrections has stated that his department has no interest in the property, and the citizens of Laconia have made it clear that they do not want a prison on the site. Rep. Greemore’s contention that the City of Laconia “does not have the means to offer a productive plan for the property” is rebutted by the findings of the Commission and Commission Chair Matt Lahey’s vision for future uses of the land which include “recreation, agriculture and conservation.” Lakes Region Community College has expressed interest in components of the property. Both of these endeavors would clearly be a “higher and better” use of the property. There is little question that this parcel could be a tremendous jewel for both Laconia and Belknap County — BUT NOT AS A JAIL!

To the editor, Republicans want to cheat by suppressing the vote. They are willing to lie and distort the truth about facts that the citizens are entitled to. With the help of Fox News, they spread these lies and distortions. It is called propaganda. They are “bent” on eliminating the rights of women by pressing such issues as abortion and women’s health care, including the elimination of Planned Parenthood. They want to disenfranchise the middle class working people by stamping out labor unions. The Republican Party’s goal is not to govern and work toward compromise to solve our nation’s problems. They want power and will “tank” the country to get their wish. A good example is the effort to destroy President Obama and make him a oneterm president, at the expense of our nation’s economic well-being and the millions of unemployed Americans. They will not pass jobs bills!

Beyond these facts are procedural issues. Members of the Belknap County legislative delegation have a duty to review and approve or disapprove the county budget proposed by the County Commissioners. Should members of the delegation have proposals to be put on the table about this property or any other Belknap County issue, they must take the form of legislation introduced at the Statehouse. However, the time for that type of action has passed in this session. The legislature has directed the state to sell the property by May of 2013. The City of Laconia is currently the high bidder. Moreover, the City of Laconia can qualify for federal clean up funds without which no development can occur. Executive Councilor Ray Burton, who must vote to approve any sale, has expressed his support for the City of Laconia’s offer. Sen. Chuck Morse, chair of the Senate Finance Committee, sees the parcel as “nothing more than an expense” to the state. In fact, to have the property developed in an appropriate manner by the private sector would bring additional property tax revenue which would benefit taxpayers of both the city and the county. Now that the Department of Health and Human Services has budgeted to move the Designated Receiving Facility for some sex offenders away from the Laconia property, one more hurdle has been cleared toward resolution of this issue. The County Commissioners and the City of Laconia are working together to ensure the best possible outcome for the future of this property. Rep. Greemore’s recent comments and suggestions are ill-timed, uninformed and counterproductive. We urge officials of the state and city to move toward a conclusion of a sale.

My grandfather was a Republican. He was a hydraulic engineer and was responsible for getting water to the city of San Francisco. He would be horrified to see the Republican Party today. He was a conservative and had those values that the Republican Party used to hold dear. I remember at dinner he would say grace. He always ended his speaking with the words “...and make us ever mindful of the needs of others. Amen”. I don’t believe the present day party is mindful of the poor, the elderly, and the sick. This is evident in the Paul Ryan budget, which passed the House, reducing or eliminating programs for the middle class, the poor, the elderly, the sick, and the very young. America needs a two party system to be a healthy democracy. When one of those parties is distorted by ideologues that lack common decency we have a problem which threatens our America. Dr. Thomas Dawson Laconia

I plan to make a day of Multicultural Festival & you should too To the editor, Laconia’s Multicultural Festival Committee is putting the finishing touches on the planning for this year’s event, to be held on Saturday, September 8. Every citizen of Laconia can be proud of this celebration. This is our chance to celebrate the diversity of our city, region and state, and to spend a few hours learning about different cultures that make up this marvelous country of ours. And eat!

Your help will be appreciated, and will help ensure that the city can continue to enjoy this wonderful celebration. See you there, John Walker Laconia

You’re more likely to see a UFO than find any voter fraud in U.S. To the editor, Whose budget is it? First it was Ryan’s and then, on 60 Minutes ,it was Romney’s budget. Why? Well it was because he wants to be the president and have Ryan be the VP. Then Romney went to Florida and was asked the differences between the two. He wasn’t to sure on any difference but he would let us know — trust me, says he. Then Ryan is asked the same thing and he can’t tell the differences. Will we ever know whose budget is whose and what are the differences and what will happen to Medicare? But the Romney ads are still running. It seems that the Republican governors are making up more lies and accusations against Obama with the work requirement for welfare. They are more

interested in passing false information than listen to the truth. Looks like all the bribe money is being well spent. The work requirement is still there and it is up to the governors to decide what to do with it. Just more lies and distortions to make Democrats look bad. How about voter fraud? You are more likely to see a UFO than find fraud. Now all of you people who are in favor of the Keystone project — because of all those phony reasons, then Hydro Quebec in Canada wants you to sign up for the Northern Pass project. Same idea — environmental disaster, fewer jobs than advertised, oil gets exported and the favorite — eminent domain land seizures. Jon Hoyt Bridgewater

LETTERS

ANTIQUES

Understand that Mr. Veverka knows nothing about political economy To the editor, I remember a letter to The Daily Sun about a year ago in which James Veverka informed us of his wide knowledge of history. I accept that, although for my taste I find his history heavy on factoids and light on objectivity. In the same letter he admitted to some weakness in economics. His letter in defense of Keynesian economics last week indicates that he has failed to use the year Everything he wrote is Orwellian distortion. He states that: “Keynesian economic strategies brought us out of almost every recession since 1929”. Patently false. Keynesian policy redistributes resources by government fiat and whim as opposed to free choice market forces. It adds nothing to the economy but an enervating effect on a natural recovery, and has in fact prolonged every recession in which it was employed. It can aptly be compared to a transfusion from your right arm to your left arm through a leaky tube.

In the 18th century thousands of people were “cured” by the application of leeches. People got sick; bloodletting was performed;most people got better; it works. Now we know that the process did nothing but weaken the patient and prolong a natural recovery; a perfect analogy for Keynesian economics. But in spite of extensive study and evidence to the contrary, the Keynesian/ FDR myth persists among the faithful. It thrives because it meshes perfectly with the simplistic economic thinking of liberals. H.L.Mencken had a phrase that best describes their political solutions:”neat, plausible, and wrong”. I respond to Mr. Veverka, not with any illusions of cooling his leftist zeal, but simply because the readers of The Daily Sun should be aware that he understands nothing about political economy. His economics is a subjective world of liberal platitudes and prejudice. Robert E. Hood Center Harbor

Library has all the books it needs or they’re just not a high priority? To the editor, Idle time and the city budget: when I have spare time, I enjoy exploring the City of Laconia budget. A persistent conclusion is that the best job in town is working for the city. That’s okay. It’s reassuring to know the city is attracting the best talent. When reviewing the budget it’s fun to look at the structure of a department and see how it’s money is spent to benefit the community. This is what I found when looking at the library. If we divide the library’s annual budget by the city’s population we find it costs each citizen about $47 per year to have a library. The library has 10 full-time employees so it must be a busy place. I

was surprised to learn that only about 8-percent of the library budget is spent buying books. This would suggest that the library has all the books it needs or books are not a high priority. When comparing the library to other departments, I learned it’s budget is about 25-percent of that spent to maintain the Fire Department. An administrative assistant at the library works two hours a week less than a class two firefighter and makes a couple thousand dollars less per year. Once again, I’ll mention my examination of the budget is done only for amusement. Tom Becker Laconia

New fiber optics at public access TV paves way for video on demand & program streaming BY ROGER AMSDEN FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Lakes Region Public Access Television made a giant leap forward Thursday morning as it switched from copper wires to fiber optic cable, a change which will exponentially increase its capacity to bring local programming to the public and will in the near future allow live streaming video of meetings as they take place, as well as video on demand of past public meetings. ‘’It’s a whole new ball game,’’ says Denise Beauchaine, manager of LRPA, who said that the new high speed cable provides the kind of platform which will make a host of new initiatives possible. LRPA got a helping hand with the installation of the new fiber optic cable from workers from the Noyes Test and Inspection Division of AFL, an international company, who were on hand with the latest technology for testing how well the signals move through the cable. Beauchaine said that the services of the company were made available thanks to Chan Eddy, a member of the LRPA board of directors who also works for AFL. ‘’They were here as a courtesy to us.

We’re looking to have the best possible quality and avoid as many problems as possible as we make the changeover,’’ said Beauchaine. ‘’It’s all about light, little glass fibers about the thickness of a human hair that can carry an unbelievable amount of information, both audio and video,’’ said Eddy. He said that fibers are used instead of metal wires because signals travel along them with less loss and are also immune to electromagnetic interference. Conducting the tests with a handheld device (which costs over $9,000 and is made by AFL) was Dean Murray of Noyes, who said that one of the problems for fiber optic cable is contamination from microscopic dust, which the testing devices are used to detect. The new wiring was installed as part of the move of LRPA’s studio from the core of the high school complex to the front side of the building, facing Union Avenue, and will see a separate entryway for LRPA so that its studio can be accessed without entering the high school. Beauchaine said that the new technology which is being installed will enable LRPA to utilize green screen technology with a virtual set instead see next page

Team of LPD officers focussing on phone & mail scams BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — In response to a growing number of complaints about suspicious telephone and mail solicitations, the Police Department has mounted a major initiative to prevent fraud by assigning a team of officers to undertake a so-called POP, or “Problem Oriented Policing,” project designed to alert residents to the risks of providing information or transferring money to anyone not familiar to them. Captain Matt Canfield, who leads the team, yesterday told the Police Commission that virtually all reported scams originate outside the city, the state and even the country and consequently are very difficult to investigate and even more difficult to prosecute. He said that the goal of the project is to inform people about the operation of different scams so they can recognize fraudulent representations and solicitations. Officer Adam Marsh recalled that not long ago a woman received a call from someone claiming to represent a government agency that was issuing identity cards to senior citizens for use in emergencies. The woman asked for her name and address and then for the name of her bank, together with its routing number and her account number. Then she was transferred to a second woman who took the same information. Fortunately, the woman immediately realized her mistake and called the police. Officer Dan Carsen contacted her bank, which at once froze her accounts, sparing her any financial loss. Marsh offered another example of man who received a check for $3,980 drawn on a Michigan bank along with a cover letter bearing a company letterhead, informing him he had won $150,000 in the “MEGA Lottery” and providing him with a claim number. He was instructed to deposit the check, from preceding page of a physical set for productions from its own studio and that for the next year the high school’s multimedia program will utilize LRPA’s facilities until the program gets a new location in the addition which is being constructed to the high school as the result of the Huot Center project. ‘’It will provide a lab experience for the kids in multimedia and allow them to work on their own productions,’’ said Beauchaine. She said that she is excited about the changes which are coming to public access television as a result of the switch to fiber optics and the live feeds from local government meetings as well as the capacity for video on demand.

which subsequently proved to have been stolen, and return a portion of funds to claim his winnings. The letter included a warning to keep the entire transaction strictly confidential until it was complete. Finally, Marsh mentioned the “grandparent scam,” explaining that a caller poses as a grandchild who has been arrested on a minor charge and is seeking money for bail. The “grandparent” is asked to wire the funds. Other common frauds are committed by people pretending to be contractors offering to pave a driveway or shingle a roof, who request an advance payment for materials, but never do the work. Canfield said that the team is in the process of preparing materials and presentations to increase public awareness of scams while showing how to recognize and avoid them. The team will ultimately make recommendations for improving the system for reporting fraud, which takes many forms, and for training officers to investigate fraud. Apart from Canfield and Marsh, Sergeant Michael Finogle, Officer Michelle Cardinal, Detective Kevin Butler, Dispatcher Ken Smith and administrative assistant Cheryl DeTurk are assigned to the project. NOTES: Chief Chris Adams announced the promotion of Jeff Wholley to Master Patrol Officer. Next month Wholley will be assigned to the Detectives Division. . . . . . The Police Department has closed its sub-station on Church Street, but will open to new substations in the coming weeks, one at 22 Strafford Street, the Normandin Square Apartments, and another at 57 Blueberry Lane. Officers on patrol use the sub-stations to complete paperwork, make phone calls and meet with members of the public. Adams said that the space at the Normandin Square Apartments is sufficient to host group meetings. ‘’People will be able to access selectmen’s meetings that took place in March on any number of devices, from the Internet or from hand-held mobile devices or wireless devices. It’s going to be a seamless environment for people to be able to stay in touch with what’s happening in the community and local government,’’ she said, Public access television was introduced into the Lakes Region in the 1990s as a result of a cable franchise agreement negotiated between a consortium of local communities, including Laconia, Gilford, Franklin, Meredith, Tilton, Northfield, Belmont and Alton and MetroCast Cablevision, which provides several channels for public access television (24-26).

With CROs back on payroll, LPD wrote 5X as many parking tickets in July as it did in same month last year LACONIA — Lieutenant Al Lessard told the Police Commission yesterday that 1,227 parking tickets were issued in the first seven months of 2012, nearly twice the 644 issued during the same period last year. In July alone, 515 tickets were issued, compared to only 108 in the same month a year ago. Chief Chris Adams noted that the increase reflected the initiative of City Councilor Brenda Baer (Ward 4). As the liaison to the Police Commission whose ward includes much of downtown, Baer persuaded the council to restore funding for the “Community Resource Officers” CROs), students hired in the summer whose duties include enforcing parking restrictions downtown. The presence of the CROs is reflected in the revenue collected

from parking fines, which averaged $35,420 a year from 2007 to 2010, but fell to $12,500 in 2011 when the funding for their positions was struck from the Police Department budget. “They pay for themselves,” Baer said. The Police Department employs three CROs who together work 58 hours a week during June, July and part of August at a cost of approximately $12,000. In addition to parking enforcement at The Weirs, Lakeport and downtown, the CROs ferry police vehicles, conduct house checks and perform other similar tasks. Adams said that the CROs have completed their work for the year and that the patrol division would be responsible for parking enforcement until they return next spring. The 2012-2013 budget includes funding for the positions.

NEIGHBORS from page one meetings earlier this year, but quickly notified abutters that another would be held last night. The entire Joint Building Committee, compose off members of the School Board and City Council attended, along with Paul Moynihan, director of public works and his deputy Luke Powell, Planning Director Shanna Saunders and Chad Montrose of RistFrost-Shumway Engineering. Plans displayed on easels were ranged about the newly renovated art room and residents’ questions were addressed at the different stations. Montrose and Powsell agreed that most of the questions bore on stormwater and drainage. Bobotas Field will be graded and filled to construct a playing surface while the slopes to the south and north, which are scarred by erosion, will be loomed and seeded. Stormwater will flow to a catch basin then flow to a culvert on Morrill Street and into an unnamed brook. The drainage study indicates that once the project is complete runoff from the site during 5, 25 and 100 year storms will be reduced. Richard Elwell’s home on Woodland Avenue now overlooks the north end zone, but will overlook a parking lot with capacity for 140 vehicles when the project is complete. “I won’t get to see the game, anymore,” he remarked, adding that the extra points landed in his yard. He asked that the project include some plantings that would screen the view of the parceling lot from his home.

Residents of Shepherd Street, whose lots will back onto 35,000-feet of lawn and the football field, were also concerned about the view. Montrose explained that both the lawn and the field will be elevated some 10 feet above their backyards and located about 25 feet from their property lines. He said that they would look on to a slope at the rear of their properties where much of the existing vegetation will remain. “We are trying to minimize the impact on your views,” Montrose said. Bob Soucy, a retired police officer who lives on Woodland Avenue, expressed concern that the campus was open to traffic from Union Avenue and Dewey Street and suggested gates be installed to prevent vehicles from reaching the parking lot at the rear of the building . “Otherwise it will be party-time every night,” he warned. Champlin said that motion-activated security cameras mounted on the rear of the building will record any activity in the area. “We are confident of our security measures,” he said, noting that similar measures were taken at the new middle school. During construction residents of Morrill Street, where there is a municipal right-of-way that leads up to Bobotas Field, will experience heavy truck traffic, said Powell. “It could be pretty intense for as long as three months.” He anticipated that some traffic control measures will be required to maintain the flow of vehicles and ensure the safety of residents.

Driver charged with causing May 27 power outage in Gilford a no show in court LACONIA — The Gilford man who allegedly crashed a car into a telephone pole on Cat Path on May 27 and fled failed to appear for his court date yesterday. Fourth Circuit Court, Laconia Division Judge Timothy McKenna issued a bench warrant for Adam Moulton, 21, of 53 Falls Avenue. According to complaints obtained yesterday from the court, Moulton was allegedly driving a 2004 Saab 9-3 at a “high rate of speed” and failed to stop at the intersection of Henderson and Intervale Roads. Police said “because of his reckless driving,” he was unable to stop and struck a utility pole on Cat

Path owned by Public Service of New Hampshire. A Cat Path resident reported the power outage at 2 a.m. PSNH arrived at 3 a.m. and notified police when workers saw the reason for the power outage. Gilford firefighters and police searched the woods looking for the unknown driver fearing he or she was injured and unable to seek help. After identifying Moulton as the alleged driver, police cited him for a violation for reckless driving and for a Class B misdemeanor of conduct after an accident for leaving the scene of an accident that caused property damage. — Gail Ober

sight. The marshals notified state and local police and applied for a search warrant. After securing the warrant, Barnstead Police said they found about 25 marijuana plants, some bags of pills, about a pound of marijuana and packaging equipment. Police said they also found a number of guns in the home.A Ashley is charged with one felony count of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute; one felony count possession of narcotics — methylone; one felony count of manufacturing a controlled drug — marijuana; and one count of felony possession of narcotic drugs with the intent to distribute — oxycodone and diazepam. Ashley is free on $1,500 cash bail. — Gail Ober

BLACK HAWK from page 2 larly launch attacks. Provincial spokesman Ahmad Jawed Faisal did not provide details or say how the province had confirmed the information. Kandahar is a traditional Taliban stronghold and the spiritual birthplace of the hardline Islamist movement, which ruled Afghanistan before being ousted in 2001 by the U.S.-led alliance for sheltering al-Qaida’s leaders. Thursday’s crash came less than a week after six American service members were gunned down, apparently by two members of the Afghan security forces they were training to take over the fight against the insurgency. White House spokesman Jay Carney said Thursday that the U.S. is prioritizing efforts to prevent more of these types of attacks. NATO says that 34

international service members have been killed in attacks by Afghan security forces or militants wearing their uniforms so far this year. The international force “is continually assessing and refining procedures in force protection so that we can both meet mission requirements and ensure the safety of our forces,” Carney said. The Taliban said Thursday that the insider attacks are part of a strategy to undercut the alliance between the Afghan government and international forces. “Mujahideen have cleverly infiltrated the ranks of the enemy according to the plan given to them last year,” the militants said in their annual statement ahead of the Eid al-Fitr holiday marking the end of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month.

Man charged with growing pot in Barnstead asks for probable cause hearing LACONIA — The lawyer for a Barnstead man facing four separate drug charges told the judge yesterday he intended to ask for a probable cause hearing, which is scheduled for September 4. A probable cause hearing is not a trial but rather a chance for a judge to determine whether or not there is enough evidence against the accused to proceed to trial. Ryan Ashley, 20, of 640 Providence Road and attorney Mark Sisti appeared briefly in 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division yesterday morning. Ashley was arrested by local and state police after U.S. Federal Marshals went to the home where he was living to look for a different man. Although the man they sought the night of June 27 was not there, Ashley was, and police said marshals noticed marijuana plants growing in plain

HEPATITIS from page 2 sniffed cocaine may have caused the virus to spread in some cases. However it happened, health officials say baby boomers are five times more likely to be infected than other adults. Officials said they decided to issue the recommendations after seeing the number of Americans dying from hepatitis C-related diseases nearly double from 1999 to 2007. Another reason: Two drugs hit the market last year that promise to cure many more people than was previously possible.

Previously, testing was recommended only for people considered at highest risk, like current and former injection drug users. About 3 percent of baby boomers test positive for the virus, the CDC estimates. Of those, some manage to clear the infection from their bodies without treatment, but still have lingering antibodies that give a positive initial test result. That’s why confirmatory tests are needed. Still, only a quarter of infected people are that lucky. Most have active and dangerous infections, health officials said.

from preceding page just about any LHS graduate city resident could afford. Falling in between those offerings is the opportunity to purchase an engraved granite step, which sports fans will tread on their way from the parking lot behind the school up to see one of the many Sachem sports teams that will compete on the synthetic-turf field at the new Bank of New Hampshire Stadium. There are 21 steps available for sponsorship at the price of $5,000 each. Ten of those have been spoken for, said Superintendent Bob Champlin, who plans to send letters to LHS-related families, informing them of the opportunity to sponsor a step and engrave it with a name or message of their choosing. John Grobman, one of the doctors at Orthopedic Professional Associates in Gilford, is one of the 10 who have reserved a step. “I’m very supportive of this project,” he said. Grobman serves as the team doctor for the LHS football team but added that his interest includes improvements to academic facilities, such as the addition of science labs. “It’s fantastic for the community.” Bob Hamel, a city councilor and member of Laconia High School’s Class of 1969, ran track in his younger days and said he and his wife agreed that contributing to his alma mater’s new era was the right thing to do. “I just think it’s an amazing project,” he said. Fellow City Councilor Matt Lahey (Class of ‘73) agreed. “This is a transformational project, really...

It’s very exciting, it’s fun being a part of it.” Ed Engler, editor and publisher of The Laconia Daily Sun, was similarly moved by the project. Although he doesn’t have a historical personal connection to the school, he felt compelled to join in its betterment. “I think this is one of those rare opportunities, where the community has the chance to come together and do something this permanent. When an opportunity like this comes along, those of us who have been fortunate to make a good living in this community have a responsibility to get involved.” “It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity,” added Hamel. Champlin, who has been one of the organizers of the campaign, took the opportunity to reserve one of the steps for himself. “The spirit of being part of this project is incredible,” he said. Other early step sponsors include Laconia Mayor Mike Seymour and Bob St. Lawrence, who served as principal of the school for two decades. With the renovation and reconstruction of the high school and technical center, the city will have completed a city-wide improvement of its facilities. All three elementary schools have been renovated in the last dozen years and the middle school building was constructed three years ago. Including all donations, the School District has raised 60-percent of the $1-million goal. Champlin said he hopes to be able to report the campaign’s success at the homecoming game on September 28. For donation information, call the district at 5245710 or follow the Capital Campaign links from the district’s website, laconiaschools.org. ANY B JO SIZE

Red Sox avoid sweep with 6-3 win in Baltimore BALTIMORE (AP) — The Boston Red Sox, and Clay Buccholz in particular, put on a good show for three members of the team ownership committee who ventured to Camden Yards to get a firsthand look at their struggling ballclub. Buchholz shook off a rocky start to earn his 11th win, Dustin Pedroia singled in the tiebreaking run in the sixth inning and the Red Sox beat the Baltimore Orioles 6-3 Thursday night to avoid a threegame sweep. Principal owner John Henry, chairman Thomas Werner and president and CEO Larry Lucchino were all in attendance following a rough stretch in which Boston lost six of eight to bring up questions surrounding the job security of first-year manager Bobby Valentine. The trio visited the clubhouse before the game and showed up again afterward. “They said they were bringing us luck,” Valentine said. “After we started (behind) 2-0, I was looking for an early flight home.” After giving up three runs and six hits over the first two innings, Buchholz (11-3) kept the Orioles

at bay while the Red Sox rebounded from a 3-1 deficit. The right-hander ended up allowing three runs, eight hits and three walks over eight innings. He struck out seven. “He brought the competitive spirit to a new level tonight,” Valentine said. “They were jumping on his early pitches, he got down early. But when he saw we had some resiliency in our offense, he shut the door. He shut it quick.” Buchholz was delighted to perform so well for the men who sign his paycheck. “They are the ones that put the team together,” he said. “It was good to see those guys here. It added motivation. They’ve got busy lives, so they could have been somewhere else. Instead, they were here showing us they were behind us and supporting us.” Alfredo Aceves worked a perfect ninth for his 24th save. Adrian Gonzalez had two RBIs and Cody Ross chipped in with three hits for Boston. Serving as designated hitter for the first time this season, Jacoby Ellsbury went 0 for 4 to end his 38-game hitting streak against Baltimore.

TAXES from page 2 from $50,000 to $75,000 a year, pay 12.8 percent of their income in federal taxes, according to the nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation. In 2010 and 2011, Romney made about $21 million a year. Romney is able to keep his tax rate low because most of his income is from investments, which are generally taxed at a lower rate than wages. That type of legal tax figuring is something Obama has proposed changing, although his campaign notably said nothing about Romney’s self-described tax rate itself. Instead, the campaign targeted only Romney’s truthfulness, refusing to accept his answer and pressuring him to release years of earlier tax returns. “Prove it,” said Obama spokeswoman Lis Smith. “Given Mitt Romney’s secrecy about his returns, coupled with the revelations in just the one return we have seen to date and the inconsistencies between this one return and his other financial disclosures, he has forfeited the right to have us take him just

at his word.” Reid’s office said much the same. Romney demanded that Reid “put up” the name of his anonymous source. “Given the challenges that America faces — 23 million people out of work, Iran about to become nuclear, one out of six Americans in poverty — the fascination with taxes I’ve paid I find to be very small-minded,” Romney said. Obama and Vice President Joe Biden have released their returns for the years since 2000. The Obamas paid 20.5 percent in federal income taxes in 2011. Ryan, meanwhile, found himself doing his own explaining. He and Romney have launched a new strategy this week of criticizing Obama for taking more than $700 billion in Medicare funds to help pay for his health care overhaul. Yet those same cuts are in a House Republican budget blueprint authored by Ryan.

Retired Baptist minister Jennifer Worden Flagg is featured speaker at Union Church on Meredith Neck MEREDITH — Closing the 2012 summer season of the Meredith Neck Union Church on August 19, will be retired Baptist minister, Jennifer Worden Flagg. Flagg has a rich history with the church going back to the 1950’s, as her grandfather was one of several who helped rebuild the present day structure. Her father was a long time trustee, and her mother engaged the ministers for many summers. Both she and her sister were also married in the church. Pastor Jenny is a current Union Church Trustee and a popular annual guest speaker. Bill Flagg, Jennifer’s husband, is a member of the Rock-A-Billy Hall of Fame, and enjoys playing guitar and singing bluegrass and gospel music. He will be supplying the special music at the 10 a.m. service and will sing, “I Have a Dream” and “Walking My Lord Up Calvary Hill.” This dynamic duo always closes the service with “God Bless America” and is a fitting end to a fantastic summer at the Inter-Denominational Union Church, located at 258 Meredith Neck Road. Returning as guest pianist will be Caleb Jaster. Caleb, a 2012 graduate of Sant Bani School, will soon be part of the freshman class at Sarah Lawrence Uni-

from preceding page Santoro, who is a cancer survivor himself.

Ground breaking ceremony scheduled for Pemi- Adult Success Program Valley Habitat for Humanity’s Bristol subdivision offers second chance PLYMOUTH — Pemi-Valley Habitat for Humanity will host a formal ground breaking ceremony for the largest and most ambitious Habitat project ever to be undertaken in the region. This event will take place on Saturday, August 25 at noon at the site of the fourhome cluster development on Rte. 3A South in Bristol. Reverend Douglas Hedstrom The Pemi-Valley (Courtesy photo) Habitat Board of Directors unanimously voted to name the road leading to the new Bristol homes “Hedstrom Way.” This road, as well as the homeowners association, is named in memory of the Reverend Douglas Hedstrom, former pastor of the Bristol United Church of Christ. Rev. Hedstrom was a very dedicated Habitat supporter and volunteer, who passed away suddenly on June 19, 2010 while construction of the Mastin home in Rumney was nearing completion. Rev. Hedstrom was a regular volunteer at the build site. Members of the Hedstrom family will be in attendance to help formally break ground for the project. Several years ago, the New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority purchased this parcel of land from the N.H. Department of Transportation. The plan was to sell the land to Pemi-Valley Habitat for

the construction of Habitat homes. However, studies showed that infrastructure costs for wells, septic, road and drainage would exceed $200,000. In an attempt to move the project forward, PemiValley Habitat applied for a $266,000 Community Development Block Grant and became the first Habitat for Humanity affiliate to have a project receive funding. The Community Development Finance Authority (CDFA) cited the history of success of Pemi-Valley Habitat and its stability over the years as major reasons the project was supported. “We are very pleased and excited to receive this grant and to have the opportunity to build in the town of Bristol for the very first time,” said Pemi-Valley Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Brian McCarthy. “It is very rewarding to be the first Habitat affiliate to have a project get funded and this is a testament to everyone, past and present, who helped make PemiValley Habitat such a successful organization.” Now, Pemi-Valley Habitat needs to raise the money to construct the four homes, its match for the CDBG grant. “We are again asking the community for its support,” said McCarthy. “We will also be looking for as many volunteers as possible to help us build these homes.” Work has already begun on the site with Clarke and Company of Wilmot awarded the contract for the site work and four families have been selected to receive these Habitat homes. Pemi-Valley Habitat for Humanity has built 26 homes for needy and deserving families in the Plymouth area. The 26th home for the Mason family on Glove Street in Ashland was completed in February.

Camp Kehonka reunion will be held at the NH Boat Museum in Wolfeboro on Saturday WOLLFEBORO — Thanks to the internet world, especially Facebook, campers who attended Camp Kehonka are coming in droves for the 2012 alumnae reunion Saturday, August 18 hosted at the New Hampshire Boat Museum. The reunion is being coordinated by former camper Cheryl Shanahan, who also assisted the Museum along with David Warren in organizing the Museum’s current exhibit on the camp. Also helping with reunion plans are several members of the Ballentine family and other former campers and counselors. This is the first Kehonka reunion since 2000. Attendees will be coming from all the New England states, California, Oregon, Iowa, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia, Washington, D.C., Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York. International attendees will come from Sweden, Great Britain, Canada and Venezuela. In all over 100 people will attend the reunion. Camp Kehonka alumnae who wish to learn more can visit the Kehonka blog at http://kehonka.wordpress.com. Camp Kehonka was founded in 1902 by Laura Mattoon, a science teacher from a private school in New York City. It was a controversial move at the time to open a camp for girls on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee near Wolfeboro, as camping was not considered lady-like. But Mattoon believed that girls could benefit from a summer on the lake with activities ranging from

arts and crafts to swimming, canoeing and sailing. Camp Kehonka expanded its reach year by year, eventually attracting girls from around the world. The camp closed in 1985, having brought happy memories to hundreds of girls. On Wednesday night Shanahan presented a lecture on the camp’s history at the New Hampshire Boat Museum. The reunion and lecture accompany the New Hampshire Boat Museum’s current display on the history of the camp, which contains original photographs, printed material, uniforms, and arts and crafts that were made by the girls. The exhibit also features the camp’s giant wooden duck, which the girls were allowed to ride (on a track) into the dining hall on Banquet Night at camp. To learn more about any of these programs or events, call the museum at 569-4554 or visit the Museum’s website at www.nhbm.org. The New Hampshire Boat Museum is open to the public for the 2012 season from May 26 - October 8, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and Sundays noon-4 p.m. The Museum is a not-for-profit institution focusing on New Hampshire’s boating heritage and is located at 399 Center Street, Wolfeboro Falls, 2 miles from downtown Wolfeboro inthe former Allen “A” Resort dance hall/ theater building, For further information contact the Museum at 603-569-4554, museum@nhbm.org, www.nhbm.org or via Facebook.

LACONIA — Laconia Adult Education offers adult learners a second change to return to school at night to earn their High School Diploma or GED Certificate. The Adult Success Program (ASP) is a workforce development initiative design to help unemployed, underemployed, high school dropouts and refugees in the Lakes Region achieve a secondary completion of their high school education. Without a High School Diploma or GED Certificate, job candidates are unable to even fill out an employment application. Adult learners will be able to improve their math, reading and language skills through the availability of the ASP Grant. Successful graduates will be better prepared for the workforce and may opt to continue their education at a community college. Limited scholarship funds are available to help cover the tuition and books fees for degree seeking adult learners through grants provided by the Bank of NH, the Samuel P. Pardoe Foundation, Altrusa Club of Laconia, and the NH Charitable Foundation. The funds will be administered through the Adult Success Program, a collaborative effort through NH Employment Security, LRCC, Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce and the Laconia School District. Hopefully, this innovative partnership will help to remove the financial barrier for any adult seeking a better future through education. “Their time is now. With this determination and the ASP funding, these adult learners can achieve a high school diploma or GED certificate.’’ ays Peggy Selig. director of the Laconia Adult Education office. She says that any Lakes Region Resident who has dropped out of high school, for whatever reason, is encouraged to contact her at the Laconia Adult Education Office to inquire about the availability of the limited scholarship funds. Applications need to be filled out at the New Hampshire Employment Security Office. Those interested in applying for and taking advantage of the ASP Grant, can call the Laconia Adult Education Office at 524-5712.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, August 17, 2012— Page 19

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Dear Annie: I have been a stepmom for seven years. My husband’s youngest is 22 and still lives with us. “Cara” is a hoarder. Her room is full of rotting garbage, soda cans with fruit flies coming out of them and half-eaten food left on piles of dirty clothes on the floor. There are dishes in there that I haven’t seen in years. I’ve offered to help her clean up, but she doesn’t want help. She likes her room the way it is. Cara has a part-time job and her own car. We’ve asked her to pay rent, but have yet to see any money. She obviously doesn’t help around the house. She has few friends and mostly sits in her room all day doing nothing. Frankly, I want Cara out of here. I think my husband needs to handle this, but he won’t. He refuses to kick her to the curb and says to just keep her bedroom door closed. This is causing many arguments. I cannot tolerate the thought of bugs infesting the rest of the house. The weather is hot, and I can smell her stinking room. I’ve considered cleaning it myself, but I know it will cause a huge fight. What can I do? I’m at my wits’ end. -- Wicked Stepmom Dear Stepmom: People who hoard are emotionally attached to their “collection,” even if it includes old food and dirty dishes. These things make Cara feel safe. Unfortunately, if her hoarding isn’t addressed, it is likely to get much worse, not to mention the health hazard it presents. Cara needs professional help, and the sooner her father realizes it the better for everyone. He isn’t helping his daughter by allowing this to continue. The International Obsessive-Compulsive Foundation has information on hoarding, as well as referrals. Please contact them at ocfoundation.org/hoarding. Dear Annie: I recently met up with an old acquaintance

and have fallen head over heels in love with him. We are both single and in our 50s. I believe he loves me, but I suspect he is impotent and too proud to admit it. I don’t ask any questions, and it makes no difference to me. I love him no matter what. My heart breaks for him. My question is: Can a man still feel love in his heart even though he cannot perform in bed? -- No Name, No State Dear No Name: Of course, but for many men, the ability to show love is tied to the intimacy of sex. Some also feel that if they cannot perform, a woman will think them less of a man. There are treatments for impotence, and if this is the problem, he can speak to his doctor. We suggest you be careful not to turn your encounters into sexually charged events, which may make him feel obligated to take things further. Let him know that you love him as he is, without any additional expectation. Dear Annie: I would like to respond to “Tired of Getting Bad Haircuts.” I have tried every trick you suggested, but for every good haircut, I get 50 bad ones. I’m always specific about what I want and go out of my way to communicate. Yet I’ve had dozens of uneven haircuts, bad color jobs, stylists who chat on the phone while cutting, and haircuts that look nothing like the one on the person whose hair you liked so you got their stylist’s name. I’ve also been subjected to stylists talking about their sex lives, their exes and their drug habits. I tried one stylist three times, and on the fourth trip, she said, “You are so picky, I’d like to strangle you.” I never went back. There is only so much a client can do. “Tired” hit the nail on the head. Maybe some stylists out there will see themselves and try to do better. -- Also Tired of Bad Haircuts

by Darby Conley

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis act on it now. If you don’t know, devote some time to thinking and dreaming. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Today is like an addition problem in which you already have the sum, but one addend is missing. What do you need to get to the other side of that equal sign? SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You may find this hard to believe, as you feel that you’re approachable, but some people see talking to you as a risk. They fear your rejection or judgment. Knowing this, you may work at being disarming. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You may as well scrutinize your spending; you can bet that someone else is. Invest only in the items that have a positive, justifiable effect on your overall picture. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The actions that were successful in the past might be less so now, but stick to the plan. Cycles happen. Everything will come around. Relax and ride out the one you’re in. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The thing everyone assumes to be beneficial has a few flaws. You may privately seek the truth. Should you expose the flaws to everyone? Not yet. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 17). Your genuine concern for others improves the world. Loved ones thrive under your care. Write down specific goals for the next 10 weeks to give yourself a crucial head start. You never stop learning, and the education you gain in September and October will be especially useful. Your earnings increase in 2013. Aquarius and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 16, 42, 39 and 2.

by Chad Carpenter

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The job you paid for might not turn out as hoped. All is not lost, though. This is a live-and-learn situation. Part of what you learn is that your needs and tastes are so specific that you might be the best person to serve them. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Semantics influence perception. That’s why car dealers advertise “pre-owned vehicles” instead of “used cars.” You’ll soften your approach and use semantics to your advantage. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll reveal a common misperception, champion an underdog or counteract a stereotype. “The cleverly expressed opposite of any generally accepted idea is worth a fortune to somebody.” F. Scott Fitzgerald CANCER (June 22-July 22). You might be the person who always dedicates “Wind Beneath My Wings” to someone else, but don’t forget -- especially when you’re feeling underappreciated -- that you too are the wind beneath certain wings. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It could be said that you’re in your own little world today, but you’re there by choice. Yours is a land where you see possibilities that others don’t. You play in the place of what might be, while others stay in what is. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are in charge today. It’s not a group effort, though it takes a group to get it done. What’s happening is happening because you took responsibility or didn’t. You have the power. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There’s something you can do that will later make others look at you and say, “I wish I’d had that idea.” If you know what it is,

Page 22 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, August 17, 2012

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, Aug. 17, the 230th day of 2012. There are 136 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Aug. 17, 1982, the first commercially produced compact discs, a recording of ABBA’s “The Visitors,” were pressed at a Philips factory near Hanover, West Germany. On this date: In 1807, Robert Fulton’s North River Steamboat began heading up the Hudson River on its successful round trip between New York and Albany. In 1912, the second movie inspired by the Titanic disaster, a German production titled “In Nacht und Eis” (In Night and Ice), was released. (Unlike the first, “Saved From the Titanic,” ‘’In Nacht und Eis” still exists.) In 1915, a mob in Cobb County, Ga., lynched Jewish businessman Leo Frank, whose death sentence for the murder of 13-year-old Mary Phagan had been commuted to life imprisonment. (Frank, who’d maintained his innocence, was pardoned by the state of Georgia in 1986.) In 1942, during World War II, U.S. 8th Air Force bombers attacked German forces in Rouen, France. U.S. Marines raided a Japanese seaplane base on Makin Island. In 1960, the newly renamed Beatles (formerly the Silver Beetles) began their first gig in Hamburg, West Germany, at the Indra Club. In 1961, the United States and 19 Latin American countries signed the Charter of Punta del Este in Uruguay, creating the Alliance for Progress aimed at promoting economic growth and social justice. In 1969, Hurricane Camille slammed into the Mississippi coast as a Category 5 storm that was blamed for 256 U.S. deaths, three in Cuba. In 1978, the first successful trans-Atlantic balloon flight ended as Maxie Anderson, Ben Abruzzo and Larry Newman landed their Double Eagle II outside Paris. In 1985, more than 1,400 meatpackers walked off the job at the Geo. A. Hormel and Co.’s main plant in Austin, Minn., in a bitter strike that lasted just over a year. In 1987, Rudolf Hess, the last member of Adolf Hitler’s inner circle, died at Spandau Prison at age 93, an apparent suicide. One year ago: Vice President Joe Biden arrived in Beijing to meet with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping. Today’s Birthdays: Actress Maureen O’Hara is 92. Author V.S. Naipaul is 80. Former MLB AllStar Boog Powell is 71. Actor Robert DeNiro is 69. Movie director Martha Coolidge is 66. Rock musician Gary Talley is 65. Rock musician Sib Hashian is 63. Actor Robert Joy is 61. International Tennis Hall of Famer Guillermo Vilas is 60. Rock musician Colin Moulding (XTC) is 57. Country singersongwriter Kevin Welch is 57. Olympic gold medal figure skater Robin Cousins is 55. Singer Belinda Carlisle is 54. Author Jonathan Franzen is 53. Actor Sean Penn is 52. Jazz musician Everette Harp is 51. Rock musician Gilby Clarke is 50. Singer Maria McKee is 48. Rock musician Steve Gorman is 47. Actor David Conrad is 45. Singer Donnie Wahlberg is 43. Former NBA player Christian Laettner is 43. Actor Mark Salling (TV: “Glee”) is 30. Actor Bryton James is 26. Actor Brady Corbet is 24.

Gilford Bicentennial Woodsman Competition is August 26 GILFORD — The town of Gilford Bicentennial Committee, led by Kitchen Cravings Restaurant owner Bill Bickford and Belknap Landscape Company, are presenting a new addition to Gilford Old Home Day weekend this year, a Woodsman Competition which will be held on Sunday, August 26 at 11 a.m. at Gilford Elementary School. From all over the state and beyond lumberjacks, timber men, loggers, wood cutters and enthusiasts are adding competition to their schedules and sharpening tools. Participants must choose 1 of 2 Divisions, the General Public Division or the Professional Lumberjack Division, so that the competitions are fun and fair. Planned individual competitions and events include, but are not limited to Jack & Jill events, perfect for couples, including a Jill’s Skillet Throw and Jack’s Chainsaw Toss competition. Individual events include Axe Throwing, Wood Splitting, Horizontal Chop, Chainsaw Speed Cut and a Chainsaw Disk Stack, an exciting timed 40-foot Pole Climb, Birling and even a Tree Identification contest. Team competitions are always a big draw at such events and Gilford’s plans include a Pulp Toss, a Log Roll and Cross Cut Sawing, as well. The registration fee is $5 per event and $20 maximum. The Bicentennial Committee has asked that participants complete the registration form, sign the liability waiver and attach checks payable to Town Of Gilford – Bicentennial,

mailing to Town of Gilford, Attention Ms. Dee Chitty, 47 Cherry Valley Rd Gilford, NH 03249. The registration form may be obtained at Gilford Town Hall or found at this link: http://www. belknaplandscape.com/arboriculture/ Gilford-Bicentennial-WoodsmanCompetition/ The local Belknap Landscape Company Tree Service Division is heavily involved in support of the Town’s Bicentennial Committee, contributing their Altec 26-to tree service crane to set and secure a large tree for the pole climb. BLC Tree Crews are supplying a huge load of milled timber and log chunks for splitting, all specified by the UNH event coordinators. Bringing extensive experience with such competitions, AJ Dupere, head coach of the UNH Woodsman Team will be bringing a number of UNH Woodsman team members along with all the necessary equipment and running the event’s competitions. Belknap Landscape enlisted the support of the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) which is encouraging participation by member company tree care professionals across New England. Gilford Home Center owner Bill Finethy is providing brand new Stihl chainsaws for the event, along with fuel and oil, chaps, hard hats, ear and eye protection, too. Numerous local businesses have contributed an assortment of event prizes in support of this unique Gilford Bicentennial event. Contestants may expect restaurant, hotel and local retail gift certificates for winning efforts.

CENTER HARBOR — The story of the Old Man of the Mountain will be told to the Center Harbor Historical Society by Maggie Stier on Thursday, August 23 at 7 p.m. at the Schoolhouse Museum. Stier says the story of the Old Man of the Mountain is a story of NH itself, reflecting the state’s history. The audience will be challenged to think about the different and evolving ways that this image has touched the public

imagination over its 200 year history. This presentation will include images of paintings, literary passages, souvenirs, and film clips of interviews with those closest to the Old Man, and conclude with a discussion of current efforts to memorialize the state symbol. The program is a grant from the NH Humanities council. It is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

PLYMOUTH — The Plymouth Regional Chamber of Commerce is holding a special Business After Hours on Tuesday, August 21, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. hosted by NH Crafters in Cahoots, Blissful Lotus Yoga, and Frame of Mind, located at 75 Main Street in Plymouth. Founded by Gusti Buhrman and Linda Parenteau, NH Crafters in Cahoots is a collaboration of many NH and New England artists. Their specially created gifts of both art and fine crafts are on exhibit and available in the store. Blissful Lotus Yoga is the brainchild of Donna Sullivan who has transformed

her years and experience with yoga into a warm, safe, non-judgmental arena to practice yoga and meditation. Frame of Mind is a dream come true art studio for Linda Parenteau, “A studio where anyone could go”. She offers classes in many mediums for all ages as well as framing. Special hors d’oeuvres will be served in the Cellar prepared by the Underdog Event Space and Catering. This monthly scheduled networking opportunity conducted by the Plymouth Regional Chamber is part of their active support of the regional businesses and is possible through the generous support of key area businesses.
