Parking ticket revenue dives without seasonal help By Michael Kitch

Weirs Drive-In Theater

LaCONia, N.H.

LACONIA — After dropping by nearly half during the fiscal year that ended in June, revenue from parking violations has fallen even faster this summer without the seasonal personnel — Community Resource Officers (CROs) — hired by the Police Department for parking enforce-

ment and other responsibilities. In fiscal year 2010, the police issued 1,257 parking tickets, which represented $40,600 in revenue while in fiscal year 2011, only 536 tickets — 57-percent fewer — were issued — and just $21, 000 — 48-percent less — was collected. With no funding for CROs in the police budget, the decline in tickets and revenue

accelerated this summer. In June, only 130 parking tickets were issued compared to 394 in June 2010, a drop of 67-percent, and in July the decrease was even greater as citations fell 77-percent, from 479 in 2010 to 108 in 2011. The impact of reduced enforcement during the summer tourist season has been see TiCKETS page 23

Another wild day on Wall Street; Dow falls 419 points

MANCHESTER (AP) — Another New Hampshire hospital is laying off workers as it challenges state budget cuts in court it says are responsible. Catholic Medical Center announced Thursday it will lay off 101 employees, including senior management. The hospital also will reduce some workers’ hours, freeze some benefits and not fill some vacant positions as well as reduce advertising and travel, access to charitable programs and the services provided by the Ask-ANurse program. The hospital is among 10 that have filed suit in U.S. District Court over cuts in state Medicaid funding. CMC said the cuts mean it must pay the state $12 million in taxes. “Despite a strong financial standing, the organization cannot pay a $12 million tax without making significant operational changes,” said Guy Chapdelaine, CMC’s board chairman. In the state budget see CMC page 12

NEW YORK (AP) — Just when Wall Street seemed to have settled down, a barrage of bad economic reports collided with fresh worries about European banks Thursday and triggered a global sell-off in stocks. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 419 points — a return to the wild swings that gripped the stock market last week. Stocks were only part of a dramatic day across the financial markets. The price of oil fell more than $5, gold set another record, the government’s 10-year Treasury note hit its lowest yield, and the average

mortgage rate fell to its lowest in at least 40 years. The selling began in Asia, where Japanese exports fell for a fifth straight month, and continued in Europe, where bank stocks were hammered because of worries about debt problems there, which have proved hard to contain. On Wall Street, the losses wiped out much of the roughly 700 points that the Dow had gained over five days. Some investors who bought in the middle of last week decided to sell after they were confronted

with a raft of bad news about the economy: — More people joined the unemployment line last week than at any time in the past month. The number of people filing claims for unemployment benefits rose to 408,000, or 9,000 more than the week before. — Inflation at the consumer level in July was the highest since March. More expensive gas, food, clothes and other necessities are squeezing household budgets at a time when most people aren’t getting raises. — Sales of previously occupied homes see STOCKS page 8

WASHINGTON (AP) — Executing a global squeeze play, the United States and its European allies on Thursday demanded an end to four decades of brutal family dictatorship in Syria and underscored the tough talk with new sanctions on President Bashar Assad’s government. The unified stance isolates Assad further as he presses a military campaign against major demonstrations. But the diplomacy left many questions unanswered, including how the demand for Assad’s ouster

can be backed up in the absence of any appetite for military intervention, and who inside the Syrian government or among the country’s fragmented opposition might take his place. The messages from Washington, London, Paris, Berlin and Brussels coincided with a U.N. report recommending that Syria be referred to the International Criminal Court for investigation of possible crimes against humanity, including summary executions, torturing prisoners and targeting children in

the crackdown on demonstrations. Much of Syria was quiet Thursday, although activists reported intense shooting around noon in the flashpoint city of Latakia. Rights groups say Assad’s forces have killed nearly 2,000 people since mid-March. The military assault on civilians has escalated since Ramadan began, with security forces killing hundreds and detaining thousands. see SYRIA page 23

Reward fund set up to try & help solve mystery of Celina’s death

CONCORD (AP) — Eager for any information that can help them resolve the suspicious death of an 11-year-old girl, New Hampshire prosecutors said Thursday they’ve set up a reward fund. An anonymous $5,000 offered last month has started up the fund. It supplements $25,000 in reward money offered by the FBI last month during the search for

Celina Cass, of Stewartstown. It has been more than two weeks since searchers pulled Celina’s body from the Connecticut River near her house, and the lack of an arrest and answers to questions about how she died have cast a pall over her hometown. Sad and edgy, residents of Stewartstown are waiting — for answers about the girl,

Beware Gov. Supercuts GOP-land is all a twitter, now that Texas Gov. Rick Perry has announced that he’s ready to ascend to the White House. His candidacy was actually launched at a Prayer-A-Palooza in Houston the week before he formally announced. While only about 30,000 evangelicals and Republican faithful showed up at the 72,000-seat football stadium rented for his public prayer spectacle, he was given saturation coverage by the corporate media, which has gone gaga over yet another smallminded, right-wing, Texas governor. If the fawning reporters had any real journalistic curiosity about what kind of national “leader” this guy would be, they could have slipped away on that same day to the city’s convention center. There, 100,000 Houstonians gathered in bleak testimony to his gubernatorial leadership. They were some of Houston’s many low-income children and parents who’re struggling to make ends meet in Perry’s hardscrabble Texas economy. These needy families had come to a citywide, back-to-school event where backpacks, school supplies, uniforms, haircut vouchers, immunizations and bags of food were being provided by the school district. Officials expected 25,000 to show up, but four times that number came. Some families camped out for hours before the doors opened, and many were turned away as supplies were exhausted by 10 a.m. “It shows the need,” observed a solemn school spokesman. Perry is known in Texas as “Governor Supercuts,” not only for his spiffy hairdo, but also for cutting the budgets of schools, poverty programs and holding down wages. In his 10-year tenure, Perry has created more minimum wage jobs than all other states combined. His superrich state now has more families in poverty and more families without health coverage than any other. He proposes to bring his “Texas Miracle” to the nation as President Supercuts. With Perry, you get the two basic political strains of today’s Republican Party in one suit. On the one hand, he has carefully posed himself in the past couple of years as the farthest out of Tea Party Republican’s far-out right-wingers. Think Michele Bachman with better hair: Perry called the BP oil disaster an “act of God.” His response to the drought that’s devastating Texas was to pray for rain (God did not oblige). He’s a “tenther” who angrily asserted state’s rights to nul-

lify Obama’s “socialist” schemes (until he needed federal cash to fix his state’s bankrupt unemployment fund). He hates government-financed health care — except for himself and his family. He loudly decries big government intrusion into people’s lives, but enacted a law this year to require any woman considering an abortion to have a grossly-invasive probe inserted up her uterus to make her see a sonogram of the embryo. If elected, he would also try to scuttle Social Security, Medicaid and the federal income tax. All this, he warns, or else Texas might secede from the Union — an idea lustily applauded by the other 49 states. On the other hand, Perry is an exuberant corporate Republican, unabashedly hugging any big business lobbyist bearing a campaign check and a wish list. Although he dresses alluringly for the right-wing extremists, the corporate powers are his true love — and vice versa. Even though he’s entering the GOP primary late, with little time to put together a national campaign, The New York Times notes that Perry has, “a vast network of wealthy supporters eager to bankroll his presidential ambitions.” Why? Because he’s already proven to be a trusted peer of the corporate-political establishment. For example, Dallas billionaire Harold Simmons invested $500,000 in Perry’s politics last year, and this year the grateful governor rammed a special favor into law that lets a Simmons corporation reap a fortune by dumping nuclear waste from 38 states in West Texas. Among the 204 donors who’ve invested $100,000-and-up in Perry’s give-and-get governorship are AT&T, Wal-Mart, the Koch brothers, Dell Inc., Clear Channel, T. Boone Pickens, Time-Warner Cable, James Leininger, TXU Energy, TRT Holdings (Omni Hotels, Gold’s Gym etc.), Bob Perry, Friends of Phil Gramm (who knew he had any!), Bank of America, Valero Energy, Burlington Northern, Harlan Crow, H.B. Zachry, FreeportMcMoRan, Union Pacific Railroad and Exxon Mobil. When Perry promises to do for America what he’s done for Texas, pay attention — it’s no idle threat. (Jim Hightower has been called American’s most popular populist. The radio commentator and former Texas Commissioner of Agriculture is author of seven books, including his new work, “Swim Against the Current: Even Dead Fish Can Go With The Flow”.)

LETTERS 112th Congress may be the worst but it’s not going to get better To the editor, In chambers the members of the House sit shoulder-to-shoulder in the shape of a horseshoe. Debates are marked by an exaggerated decorum. The casual observer might easily conclude that America has a consensual form of politics. Nothing could be further from the truth. Every member of the House is up for re-election every two years, requiring perpetual fund-raising and careful cultivation of local activists. Many congressmen invest so much time in their districts that they do not bother to rent apartments in D.C. or bring their families to the capital. Some sleep on their office sofas to avoid being seduced by the Washington atmosphere. Spending less time in Washington means there are fewer opportunities for them to befriend members of the other party and to get things done for their district. Increasingly, congressmen are doing less of both. In the House the battle never ceases. The ideological gap between America’s parties is growing. The most conservative donkey in Congress is to the left of the most liberal elephant, and vice versa. The donkeys have become the defenders of social-transfer payments, the elephants are the zealous champions of small government and low taxation. Many of the 87 freshmen elephants who entered the House in November do not believe they were sent there to conduct business as usual or to observe the customary rules of the game. War after all is hell and politics

has fewer rules than war. The addition of inexperienced legislators, burning with missionary zeal, to an already complex system of divided government and separated powers causes even veteran observers of congress to despair. It may well be true that the 112th Congress was the worst ever, but the next will be nastier still. Next year’s elections are sure to produce change in both houses and more polarization seems inevitable as redistricting enhances the role of the primaries. Nobody in a country that reveres its constitution likes to blame the fundamental design of the system. An outsider’s view might be that Congress has forgotten, or disregards the framers’ belief in “deliberation, loyalty and compromise”. As we ponder the scale of our debt and the deadlock between the parties, we should feel frustrated. After the recent debt-ceiling deal a record eight out of ten of us say that we disapprove of the way Congress is doing its job. America needs to make big changes if it is to live within its means. This will not be done by tinkering around the edges. It is the people who work the system who need to change, primarily by meeting their opponents. A willingness to understand the opposition view is required. Progress demands of participants from both parties occasionally meet half way. They might start by asking a member of the other party over for dinner. Vote early, vote often. Marc Abear Meredith

Interlakes shows are so good we’ve returned to see them again To the editor, My wife and I had been season ticket holders at what shall be an unnamed summer theatre in N.H. for about 12 years. The actors were chosen by the playhouse staff. Some were very talented, others were not as versatile. During the 12 years, we never had the desire to see a play more than once during that play’s scheduled run. For the last three years we have been season ticket holders at the Interlakes Summer Theatre in Meredith. The actors are young professionals seeking a career in theatre. They are from all over the U.S. They are

chosen by producing director Nancy Barry at auditions in New York and Boston during the off season. The actors are incredibly talented in all facets of show business. Some have gone on to Broadway. Because of their talent, we have returned to the theatre a second or even a third time to see a play during its run. We in the Lakes Region are fortunate to have such versatile professionals performing Broadway-type plays in our area. Red Murray Holderness

LETTERS Without spending & more debt The Envy Waltz would stop To the editor, Last week Obama had one of the worst weeks any president could ever have. The debt deal he put together is hated by just about every person in America, including those in his own party. Obama has a special knack of not only upsetting his enemies but also alienating his own party. The left was not happy with the debt agreement because it did not include tax increases and the right was unhappy because it did nothing but kick the can down the road to reform entitlements, Medicare and Social Security, which are the major obstacles to balance the income and outgo of spending in the years ahead. The sausage making episode clearly signaled to one of America’s top three debt rating agencies that as long as Obama is in office spending will not be cut in any meaningful way and the deficit will continue to escalate further endangering our countries economic security. Thus our bonds were down graded by S & P for the first time in history and equity markets around the world swooned. Our stock market is now off about 15-percent since the debt deal carnival side show moved into it’s final days reducing retirement pension values across the country by hundreds of billions. The 11th district court in Atlanta ruled Friday AGAINST the Obama care mandate where by every person has to purchase insurance or be fined. This is considered to be the highest and most significant ruling thus far against Obama care. It also means the question will be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court. All of these happenings as 40-percent more Americans want Obama care repealed than implemented and that divide has widened ever since the legislation was passed exclusively in the dead of night by only Democrats. Are you aware that if the legislation is upheld the power that will be given to the U.S. government? If they decide your car is harming the environment government could force you to buy a green car. They will have literally unlimited power to force anyone to

BUY ANYTHING. It scares the hell of me and it should you. The total incompetence of government is revealed over and over and over. As Obama rumbles then stumbles he tumbles in the ratings to a 39-percent job approval. The LOWEST OF HIS PRESIDENCY. The back drop to his bungled socialist agenda in America is the thundering, crumbling of socialism across much of western Europe. First, it was Greece needing a bailout, then Portugal, Spain, Italy, Ireland and now France, one of the most premier socials countries in the world. has announced it is in serious financial trouble. Socialism SHOULD BE DEAD AND BURIED but it has nine lives, like a cat. The reason being many socialist fanatics have fine oratory and silver tongues that play the “envy violin waltz” to perfection. This music separates normal people from their brains. Remember this! With out unending, non stop SPENDING, handouts, bailouts, give a ways, cash for clunkers and promises to redistribute the wealth of America from one neighbor to another, Democrats could not get elected to office in this country for a century. (They surely are not going to get elected on their competence). These steps always are without exception accompanied by the class warfare chant (that plays in harmony with the envy violin concerto) to RAISE the taxes of America to pay for it all, helping to mute job creation. Thus, you can understand why Obama refuses to stop spending, and he refuses to cut the forward deficit no matter the cost and harm to America and its reputation as the mightiest economic power on earth. Without spending and more debt The “ENVY VIOLIN WALTZ WOULD STOP” and Obama would be about as interesting to most people as day old toast. THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO VOTE FOR OBAMA ARE THE ONES WHO WANT TO PUT THEIR HAND IN YOUR POCKET! Tony Boutin Gilford

We need your help in restocking shelves at the Alton food pantry To the editor, Alton Community Services has had a very busy year. We received over two thousand canned goods from various organizations, such as Cub Scouts, Brownies, Alton Central School, Prospect Mountain High School, Weight Watchers, American Legion, JP China, and from individuals too numerous to mention.

Our local gardeners have previously supplied us with extra fresh vegetables and they are continuing the trend this year. We recently received a large amount of fresh peas.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, August 19, 2011— Page 7

BELKNAP RANGE from page one ready for their peak adventure by running along the trails in the mountain range’s rugged terrain. Kneuer, 53, has been into long-distance running for 32 years now and has twice competed in the Timberman Triathlon, a combination of swimming, biking and running, which will be held Sunday starting out from Ellacoya State Park. In 1986 he took part in the Iron Man triathlon event on Cape Cod. In 1989 he ran the entire distance around Lake Winnipesaukee, some 65.8 miles in a benefit event and has run numerous 100 mile races over the last 30 years. But he says the years have taken their toll. “My fast days are over,” says Kneuer, who estimates that he has run over 20,000 miles in his life and that the cumulative impact on his body is such that it is sending him a message to take it just a little more slowly. He said that he came up with the idea for the run through the Belknaps while looking at a map of the trail system put together by the Belknap County Sportsmen’s Association, which offers a patch for those who document their hikes to the peaks of 12 mountains in the Belknap Range. “I thought it would be kind of fun to do then all in one day,” says Kneuer, who says that the difficulty of some of the backwoods terrain ranks as a major challenge. “One steep slope near the Round Pond trail is so rugged that I call it pointe du hoc,” says Kneuer, comparing it to the 300-foot high cliff scaled by Army Rangers on D-Day at Utah Beach. The run will take Kneuer and Salome from Mount Rowe to 2,250 foot high Gunstock, then to Mount Belknap, at 2,382 feet high the tallest mountain in the range, and then on to Piper, where they will meet up with his children around 9 a.m. and will have their water bottles refilled. From there it’s on to Whiteface, Mack and other peaks with another water stop around 12:30 before doubling back and finally heading down Mount Major in the middle of the afternoon. Kneuer said that while he has been training for the run he got to see a lot of the trail work done by the Belknap Range Trail Tenders and is grateful for all of the work, largely unrecognized, that the group has done in recent years to the trail system.

“I realized that they’re the “We’ve got 21 adopters in people who make this run Bob BRATTS who take care of secand I will be taking Saturday tions of the 20 trails in the possible,’’ he says.

from preceding page suasions have fallen for these schemes. And we are all used as pawns in this terrible game to disassemble our country one piece at a time and mold us into a one world government. Attacking the Tea Party and any other group of people for attempting in a civil discourse to restore our founding values is the same old ploy used by the communist for decades. They have never changed their technique or tactics . First they say “let the people speak”. Then when they do the socialist/communist/liberal/ progressives get upset because their programs have become transparent. When they don’t get their way they call names. America is being destroyed from within. Our charter has been hacked to pieces by those who endorse principles that are hostile to our liberties and culture. Our students lack the understanding of days gone by. Morality is deemed unnecessary in the world planned for us. We elect leaders because of what they promise us, not because of their understanding and wisdom. The manipulators will not succeed until we sever our heritage by force, deceit or willingly give up the treasures given us by our ancestors. No other country shares the heritage we have been blessed with. We cannot redistribute the intelligence that brought this country this far until/unless a better understanding of correct principles dominates the political structure. Redistribution of wealth can only be distributed through labor. Any other means is but plunder. When we fail to notice those who have and are betraying us we open the flood gates to more betrayals. The elites have such an illusionary way of complicating life. Why are they devoting so much time and effort to relieve us from free agency and liberty Gene F. Danforth Danbury

City welfare expenditures included 10 cremations By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — When a city resident dies and the family doesn’t have the resources to pay for a proper disposal of the remains, the financial burden falls upon the local welfare office. This time last year, the city began to track such occurrences and John Gardner, the city’s acting welfare director, reported that in the past 12 months the city assisted 10 families with the disposal of a deceased loved one. “We go the cheapest route possible for the city,” he explained. That route is cremation, at $750 each. Ashes are released to the family, the funeral home does not prepare an obituary. The city also finances the far less frequent occur-

rence that a resident dies without having made final arrangements and no living kin can be located by either police or the funeral home . These are referred to as “unclaimed bodies,” of which Gardner said there were no such instances in the past 12 months. Craig Beane of Wilkinson-Beane-SimoneauPaquette Funeral Home in Laconia, said that when a person dies and efforts to locate a relative are unsuccessful, the body is cremated and the funeral home makes an effort to find a suitable home for the ashes. “If they have absolutely no family, we work that out.” In some cases, a caretaker can be found who will accept the ashes, in other cases the ashes can be buried with a relative in a nearby cemetery.

LACONIA — The public beach at Opechee Cove was posted as a danger area for swimmers yesterday because of high water bacteria levels. The other beach in Opechee Park, on the point behind the Middle School remains open.

The Parks & Recreation Department reported that it will not go to the expense of taking more tests this season at Opechee Cove because of the high number of waterfowl in the area and cost of the tests. People with questions are asked to call 524-5046.

STOCKS from page 2 fell in July for the third time in four months — more trouble for a housing market that can’t seem to turn itself around. This year is on pace to be the worst since 1997 for home sales. — Manufacturing has sharply weakened in the mid-Atlantic states, according to a report from the Federal Reserve. Manufacturing has been one of the strongest parts of the economy since the recession ended in 2009, but its growth has slowed this year. The manufacturing news was especially bleak on an already bad day, said Dan Greenhaus, chief global strategist at brokerage BTIG. He called the Fed report “an atrocious set of numbers.” “That really set the market on its head,” he said. Wall Street and other financial markets have wrestled for several weeks with fears that a new recession might be in the offing. Morgan Stanley economists said in a report Thursday that the U.S. and Europe are “dangerously close to recession.” “It won’t take much in the form of additional shocks to tip the balance,” they wrote. Worries about European debt also hang over the market. A default by any country would hurt the European banks that hold its bonds, plus American banks that have lent to their European counterparts.

Renewing the fears, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that U.S. regulators are looking at the U.S. arms of big European banks to make sure they have enough money for day-to-day operations. “I don’t want to pretend that the market knows what it’s thinking about too much,” said David Kelly, chief market strategist at JPMorgan Funds. “We live in an environment of sell now and ask questions later.” Asian markets started Thursday’s drop. Japan’s Nikkei 225 index fell 1.3 percent. The main stock indexes in South Korea and India each dropped a little more, then Europe more than that — 4.5 percent in Britain and 5.8 percent in Germany. In the United States, the Dow fell 419.63 points, or 3.7 percent, to 10,990.58. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 53.24, or 4.5 percent, to 1,140.65. The Nasdaq composite fell 131.05, or 5.2 percent, to 2,380.43. The Dow is down 13.6 percent since stocks began falling July 21 — four weeks that have rattled Americans watching their retirement savings and other investment accounts shrivel. Lee Applegate, a retired sales executive from Cincinnati, watched the latest market plunge uneasily but said he was planning to stay the course with his investments. He and his wife have several retirement accounts.

‘Bad boy’ behavior while Hells Angels were in town amounted to several tickets By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Captain Steve Clarke told the Police Commission yesterday that Hells Angels World Run, hosted by the city last month, passed “without any significant public safety issues.” Apart from issuing several motor vehicle summonses to members of the club, there was no occasion for police to take any other law enforcement action against a member of the motorcycle club attending the event. In a written report to the commission Clarke recalled that planning for the event began in September 2010, after Edward Shaughnessy, then president of the local Nomad Chapter of the Hells Angels, confirmed rumors that the club had chosen Laconia as the site of the 2011 World Run, a sort of reunion/convention where representatives of chapters based around the world gather. Police estimated that the even would draw between 700 and 900 members during the last week of July. Events were centered at the Hells Angels-owned compound at the dead end of Phillmore Ave., off White Oaks Road. After officers of the Police Department and New Hampshire State Police attended the annual International Outlaw Motorcycle Gang Association Conference, planning began, continuing until the eve of the event. Clarke stressed that from the outset various local, state, county and federal agencies agreed that as the city was hosting the World Run, the Laconia Police Department would be in charge

of law enforcement operations. The New Hampshire State Police took responsibility for gathering intelligence and the Belknap County Sheriff’s Office searched for grants to fund the policing of the event. Clarke reported that “little or no funds” were available, noting that funding from Immigrations and Customs Enforcement and a Safe Neighborhood Grant represented a quarter of the grant funds provided to police the same event in 2003. Clarke wrote that police met with representatives of the Hells Angels, including their attorney P. Scott Bratton to identify issues likely to arise and set ground rules for the event “so that there would be as few surprises as possible.” By inquiring of hotels and motels police were able to make what Clarke called “an educated guess” of the numbers to expect. Likewise, by learning which bars were planning special events during the World Run police determined where personnel should be deployed. Ultimately the event was policed by local officers, state troopers and 17 agents of the United States Customs and Border Protection working closely with officers on the street under the command of Patrol Agent Paul Kuhn at no cost to the city. Clarke estimated that close to 500 Hells Angels reached Laconia, well below the numbers expected, as the State Department invoked its authority to define the club as “a criminal organization” and withhold visas or deny entry to members from abroad as “aliens engaging in organized crime.”

Companion said to have tried to collect life insurance on U.S. woman missing in Aruba SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Investigators have been told that just two days after an American tourist was reported missing in Aruba, her travel companion tried to collect on a $1.5 million accidental-death insurance policy he took out on her, The Associated Press has learned. A person who provided information to authorities told the AP that Gary V. Giordano, now detained on the Caribbean island, bought the insurance specifically for his five-day getaway with Robyn Gardner. The person did not have authorization to publicly release the information and agreed to speak only on condition of anonymity. Aruban authorities have confirmed that Giordano had an insurance policy

that covered the missing woman, but have not said who the beneficiary is, how much the policy is worth or whether Giordano tried to collect. Giordano, a 50-year-old owner of a temporary staffing business from Gaithersburg, Md., traveled to Aruba with Gardner on July 31 and reported her missing two days later. He told police that she disappeared while the two were snorkeling. He initially assisted the search but was detained at the airport Aug. 5 as he tried to leave Aruba. Authorities said they found discrepancies in his story. Giordano has denied any wrongdoing through his attorney. A judge ruled Monday there is enough evidence to hold Giordano

until at least the end of August on suspicion of involvement in Gardner’s presumed death. The 35-yearold woman’s body has not been found and Aruban authorities on Thursday were preparing for a new, large-scale search of the island for her remains or other evidence. Aruban authorities in general seem more guarded with information than they were during the investigation into the 2005 disappearance of Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway — a case that remains unsolved. Holloway disappeared on the final night of a high school graduation trip to the island. Solicitor General Taco Stein, the spokesman for the investigation, has

confirmed that Giordano had travel insurance, but said authorities are still reviewing financial documents provided by U.S. authorities and are trying to determine if they are relevant to the investigation. “It’s not unusual in and of itself to buy travel insurance,” he told the AP. “Loads of people do it.” Investigators were trying to determine if there was anything unusual about the policy. “If you change the policy around and make it higher or whatever, then it may be of interest to the investigation, but we haven’t established that yet,” Stein said. The person with knowledge of the policy told the AP that Giordano pursee next page

Gilford High School football coach Mark Brewer meets with his team prior to a pre-season practice at the Meadows on Thursday afternoon. Because of low participation numbers, the team won’t field a junior varsity squad this year. (Laconia Daily Sun photo/Adam Drapcho)

Gilford High football ranks pretty thin at 27 players By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

GILFORD — A year after going 8-1 in the regular season and earning a chance to compete for the Division VI championship, Gilford football coach Mark Brewer said he’ll be happy with a 2011 regular season where his squad finishes with one more win than losses. He likes the talent and work ethic he sees during pre-season double sessions, he just wishes he had more players. As of Thursday, Brewer’s roster held 27 names. “I’d like to have 57,” he said. The 27 number is two fewer than last year, and like last year, it’s too few for Brewer to field a junior varsity team. “The last two years we didn’t have any JV team,” Brewer said. The lack of a junior varsity team makes it difficult for Brewer and his staff to develop the younger players, however, he feels he would need about five more recruits before he’d have enough players to hold their own against a junior varsity competitor. “You don’t want to send the kids out and get murdered,” he said. Brewer lost about eight seniors to graduation since last year. This year, he said his team has nine seniors but just one junior. There are more freshmen than any other grade level on the team. Brewer was disappointed to see that of the 11 freshmen who played last year, only five returned for another season. Nonetheless, Brewer expects to be competitive, because he expects the other Division VI teams will be experiencing similar challenges. Part of the phenomenon, he believes, is a change in teenage culture. “This is a commitment,” he said, watching his players run through their second session of drills on Thursday. “It requires a lot of time, a lot of commit-

ment. Unfortunately, I think there are a lot of kids these days who would rather sit in front of the TV these days and play computer games. When things get tough, you just hit the ‘restart’ button.” Another challenge for Gilford is that none of the coaching staff works in the high school. Typically there’s a coach who teaches and can thus encourage students to try out for the team. Brewer has recruited Kent Hemingway, the new superintendent to convince a few kids to give the sport a shot. “We’ve got the coaches, we’ve got the buses, we’ve got the fields, we’ve got the schedule. We’ve just got the chase those bodies,” Brewer said. If he can grow his team by enough to start a junior varsity team, and in doing so develop some depth behind his skilled veterans, Gilford could make another splash this season. Brewer pointed to Brandon Murphy, a senior who last year ran for more than 2,000 yards including post-season play. “They’re working hard, doing the best they can,” he said, as his team practiced. “We’re not going to say we’ll to much more than have fun.” from preceding page chased the $1.5 million policy shortly before he left for Aruba and that the accidental-death benefit covered only the trip. The source told the AP that Giordano called American Express Travel Insurance on Aug. 4. He sought to confirm that the documents listing him as the insurance beneficiary had been received and wanted to begin redeeming the policy. This person also said that records indicate Giordano asked whether any search costs would be covered by the policy.

STEELE HILL RESORTS and THE PITTSFIELD PLAYERS

Brady sharp as Patriots roll past Bucs, 31-14 TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Tom Brady showed midseason form in his preseason debut. After sitting out New England’s preseason opener in Week 1, the reigning NFL MVP tossed a pair of touchdowns and completed 11 of 19 passes in the New England Patriots’ 31-17 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday night. Brady threw for 118 yards in one half of work, and connected on scoring strikes from 16 yards to Aaron Hernandez, and 8 yards out to Chad Ochocinco, who also both made their debuts. BenJarvus Green-Ellis also got in on the act, rushing 11 times for 51 yards and two touchdowns. Patriots coach Bill Belichick called this a big week for his team in regards to position battles and roster spots. It included three straight days of full-pad practices, creating what some players characterized as a regular-season atmosphere.

The pace seemed to be there as Brady and the rest of the first unit played all six offensive series of the first half, failing to score on only two. They scored on four of their first five drives. Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris had a tough time finding any fault with his team’s effort in a 25-0 rout at Kansas City last week. But this week was more than a small reversal of fortune. Third-year quarterback Josh Freeman, who was Brady-like against the Chiefs, misfired on his first three passes of the night to set a bad tone the Bucs never got over. He was done after five series, connecting on 5 of 10 passes for just 33 yards. The Buccaneers had more than that in penalty yards in the first half. They were whistled 10 times for 85 yards, as New England built a 28-0 halftime lead.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Dustin Pedroia drove in three runs with a pair of well-timed singles, Josh Beckett survived a shaky start to go seven innings and the Boston Red Sox got back on the winning track with a 4-3 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Thursday night. Jason Varitek drove in the other run for the Red Sox, who had lost five of their past seven games after getting shut out by the division-rival Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday. Gordon Edes and the rest of the ESPNBoston.com team have the Red Sox covered for you. Blog Beckett (10-5) and the Royals proved to be the perfect matchup to turn things around. The righthander allowed all three runs in the first three innings to improve to 7-1 in his career against them -- his only loss came July 28 in Boston. Beckett also reached the 10-win plateau after failing in his four

previous attempts. Daniel Bard worked the eighth for Boston, and Jonathan Papelbon made it through a perfect ninth to extend his career-best streak to 24 consecutive saves. It was his 29th of the season. Luke Hochevar (8-10) labored through 114 pitches in just six innings for the Royals. The former No. 1 overall draft pick allowed all four runs on eight hits and two walks, despite getting some help from his defense. The Royals threw out three Red Sox baserunners: Varitek was nabbed at second trying to stretch a single in the second inning; Crawford was thrown out by center fielder Melky Cabrera trying to score from third base on a shallow fly ball in the fourth; and Pedroia was thrown out at second base by catcher Salvador Perez, who made an alert play after a late throw to the plate on Pedroia’s RBI single in the fifth.

federal money this way. After a federal challenge to this process, New Hampshire no longer can simply reimburse hospitals dollar-for-dollar what they are taxed. They must look at how many poor people the hospitals treat. The budget cut $115 million over two years from a fund established to make payments for caring for the poor. The hospitals estimate they will be taxed $250 million over the two-year budget. Southern New Hampshire Medical Center in Nashua plans to lay off about 100 people and Elliot Hospital in Manchester announced it plans 182 layoffs along with other service cuts. Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center is offering early retirement to about 725 workers, partly in response to the budget cuts.

LRCC’s new president discusses building plans with faculty & staff

In over your head?

Lakes Region Community College (LRCC) Arts and Sciences Professor, Dave Pollak (right) discusses design ideas for LRCC’s new Health and Sciences building with the college’s new interim President, Dr. Scott Kalicki following Kalicki’s first presentation to LRCC’s faculty and staff on Thursday morning. Ground breaking for the new building is anticipated for March 2012. Dr. Kalicki solicited design ideas from staff and faculty to take back to LRCC’s Design Committee. College personnel are in the process of selecting an architectural firm from the 22 who have indicated interest in the project. “During his presentation Dr. Kalicki said that his door is always open,” says Professor Pollak. “So far it appears to be true; Dr. Kalicki is a good listener. I think his professional background in Student Affairs will be invaluable.” LRCC day and evening classes are scheduled to begin the week of August 29. Registrations are still being accepted for classes day and night. Contact LRCC Admissions Director, Wayne Fraser at 524-3207 ext. 6766.

CELINA from page 2 ing some answers,” said Shannon Towle, whose family owns a convenience store and gas station where people gather. “It’s just creepy.” Senior Assistant Attorney General Jane Young, who is heading the investigation, says that the lull in developments shouldn’t be taken as a sign. “This amount of time shouldn’t signal to anybody that we’ve reached the end of the road,” Young said. “That’s certainly not the way we view it.” Police say the investigation is active, with the results of toxicology tests on the girl’s body pending. Experts say that may go a long way toward helping identify or charge a suspect. Celina, a shy fourth-grader, vanished July 25 or July 26 from her home after being last seen at a computer in her bedroom. For a week, a small army of investigators, law enforcement agents and volunteers searched. Friends handed out fliers containing the girl’s smil-

ing face, clutching a basketball, or looking jaunty in a baseball cap. The three-story apartment building where she lived with her mother, 13-year-old sister, stepfather and a 23-year-old man — an acquaintance of mother Louisa Noyes — was roped off with crime scene tape and two vehicles linked to it impounded. On Aug. 1, Celina’s body was found. Police, while saying her death was suspicious, still haven’t called it homicide. Now, the mystery is what killed her. “Unlike a gunshot wound or something like that, with drownings or victims found in water, it’s a process of elimination,” said Robin Adler, a professor of justice studies at Norwich University. “When a body is found in water, a lot of things happen that could mimic something that could’ve happened outside of water, like bruising of the head. They have to start with, ‘Was she alive when she entered the water?’ And it’s not just the body that will tell them.”

Overview of water quality plan at August 24 meeting CENTER HARBOR — Residents of Meredith, Moultonborough, and Center Harbor are invited to participate in the kickoff of the Center Harbor Bay subwatershed management plan on Wednesday, Aug. 24, at 6:30 p.m. at the Center Harbor Congregational Church. The meeting will feature an overview of the plan to assess water quality threats in Center Harbor Bay, with a specific emphasis on sources of phosphorus entering the lake. Phosphorus levels, which have an impact on water quality degradation, have been increasing throughout Lake Winnipesaukee for many years. Representatives from the LakesRegion Planning Commission (LRPC) and the Lake Winnipesaukee Watershed Association (LWWA) will discuss how the plan will aid local and regional water quality preservation efforts. A watershed advisory committee made up of planners, scientists, local property owners and business

owners will help guide development of the plan. The Aug. 24 meeting will offer an opportunity for residents and interested parties to learn how the project can provide all three communities with recommendations for protecting valuable surface water resources. The Center Harbor Bay subwatershed management plan is part of an ongoing effort by LRPC and LWWA to develop a watershed management plan for Lake Winnipesaukee, one subwatershed at a time. Completed subwatershed management plans are being incorporated into the Winnipesaukee Gateway website (www.winnigateway.com) in an effort to make recommendations and water quality data easily accessible and useable to as many people as possible. The plan is being funded in part by the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services and the Lakes Region Planning Commission. For more information, call Eric Senecal at 279-8171 or Pat Tarpey at 581-6632.

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You may not share your friend’s point of view or agree with everything this person says, but you will be enriched and expanded by the relationship nonetheless. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have moments of being purely loving and accepting of what is -- even when “what is” is changing rapidly. You’ll move with the changes -- fluid, graceful, no resistance. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There will be moments when silence will communicate far beyond words. There will also be moments when silence will communicate nothing -- which might be precisely what should be communicated on the topic. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). True riches cannot be bought. But the kind that can be bought will still have great appeal today, as you are in the mood to invest. You’ll show your excellent taste with a purchase. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). In some regard, you are massively ambitious. Keep plowing ahead, and you’ll gain ground. Don’t ask too many questions. Right now, it’s fine to stay a bit naive about what is possible -- that’s better than being jaded! TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 19). School is never out for you. You learn all year long, and the more you learn the more you earn. You’ll separate yourself from the other contenders and win a key position in September. Your network of friends grows in November, and winter is filled with festivities. Kismet happens on a weekend getaway. Capricorn and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 47, 20, 50, 6 and 1.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You have a gift for economy, especially verbal and written economy. You have a concise way of expressing yourself, and because of this, people get your point right away. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll see the truth in all its stark beauty and will want to exclaim it to the world. However, it may be more powerful to keep this between you and your diary for now. The world may not be ready for your radical honesty. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Social situations go better when you give yourself something to do. And because of your willingness to make yourself useful and help in whatever way needed, you’ll meet new people. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re meant to lead now. Take charge of a situation, but do so quietly and humbly. You will bring out the best in others and find ways to utilize their unique qualities and talents. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are not always in the mood to communicate. This morning, you’d rather enjoy the silence than catch up on everyone else’s business. Turn off the media and relax. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You listen when a loved one talks. But more than that, you always hear -- with your ears as well as your heart -- what is being expressed. You are cherished for these qualities. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Some preparation will be required to make social interactions go smoothly. When you don’t know what to say to a person, you may reveal too much about topics that are actually irrelevant to the situation at hand.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, August 19, 2011— Page 17

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, Aug. 19, the 231st day of 2011. There are 134 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Aug. 19, 1991, Soviet hard-liners made the stunning announcement that President Mikhail S. Gorbachev had been removed from power. On this date: In 1812, the USS Constitution defeated the British frigate Guerriere off Nova Scotia during the War of 1812. In 1909, the first automobile races were run at the just-opened Indianapolis Motor Speedway. In 1942, during World War II, about 6,000 Canadian and British soldiers launched a disastrous raid against the Germans at Dieppe, France, suffering more than 50-percent casualties. In 1951, the owner of the St. Louis Browns, Bill Veeck (vehk), sent in Eddie Gaedel, a 3-foot-7 midget, to pinch-hit in a game against Detroit. (In his only major league at-bat, Gaedel walked on four pitches and was replaced at first base by a pinch-runner.) In 1960, a tribunal in Moscow convicted American U2 pilot Francis Gary Powers of espionage. (Although sentenced to 10 years’ imprisonment, Powers was returned to the United States in 1962 as part of a prisoner exchange.)

In 1991,rioting erupted in the Brooklyn, N.Y., Crown Heights neighborhood after a black 7-year-old, Gavin Cato, was struck and killed by a Jewish driver from the ultraOrthodox Lubavitch community; three hours later, a gang of blacks fatally stabbed Yankel Rosenbaum, a rabinnical student.

Page 18 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, August 19, 2011

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Dear Annie: Last night, I visited my daughter’s Facebook page and saw that she had enjoyed a lovely anniversary. Going a little further, I Googled her name and found an article about her in connection to an award she had won. In the article, it mentioned that she had a husband and a stepchild. This all came as a surprise to me, as I had no idea she had won an award or married the man she was living with. I like the guy, and I’m happy for her, but why didn’t she tell me she has apparently been married for a year? We talk every six weeks or so, and I let her initiate the call because I know she has a specific time allotted for me. She hasn’t spent a holiday with our family in years. Instead, she spends a lot of time with her mate’s family. How do I handle this new information? Do I flat-out tell her what I discovered? (She friended me on Facebook, so seeing the announcement is not an issue.) Do I wait for her to tell me? She has not mentioned her marriage to her siblings, either. I don’t want to jeopardize the relationship we have. She is super-sensitive and always defensive. I usually let her call the shots, but this time, it’s almost more than I can bear. -- A Bewildered Mother Dear Mother: We can only imagine how difficult it is to learn of such an important event after the fact. Send your daughter a lovely card and write, “I saw on Facebook that you and ‘George’ celebrated your wedding anniversary. Congratulations! I’ve always liked George, and I know you will be very happy.” If possible, send a gift, as well. You cannot force your daughter to be closer, and confronting her about this announcement will not produce a good result. Facebook posts and semi-annual phone calls are apparently as much as she can manage. Dear Annie: My best friend, “Lizzie,” feels that it is appropriate for her to correct others on their manners. She chastised

someone for texting during a meal and primly announced to all that we mustn’t eat before the hostess does. My friends are adults, and while their manners may not be perfect, it is not my place to correct them. I am responsible for seeing that my daughter develops proper manners. Lizzie, however, insists she is being helpful when addressing the shortcomings of others. I know some of our friends resent this behavior, as do I. We went out to a nice restaurant last week, and as soon as we sat down, Lizzie told me to put my napkin in my lap. I said I knew that, and I simply hadn’t gotten to it yet. While she may be right in theory, constantly being judged makes me very uncomfortable. What is your opinion? -Omaha Dear Omaha: Lizzie is guilty of a breach of etiquette. She is rude. One does not correct other adults in public, ever, nor should she be lecturing her friends about their behavior unless they are spitting across the table (although texting comes close). She may mean well, but she is making herself obnoxious and unwelcome. Dear Annie: “Modest in Iowa” did not want a male nurse to attend to her in the hospital. As a well-educated, experienced male registered nurse, I find this type of behavior frustrating. Modesty and privacy are always respected by the professional nurse. A patient’s request for a female nurse is accommodated provided one is available. Staffing is tight in health care, and we all try to give patients a satisfactory experience while meeting their medical needs. What concerns me even more is that her fiance threatened to assault the health care worker who was trying to assist her. This type of behavior is unacceptable and dangerous. -- Nurse in Pennsylvania

GILMANTON — Former Commissioner of Agriculture Steve Taylor returns to the Gilmanton Historical Society on Tuesday, August 23, at the Gilmanton Academy for a program “Cows and Communities.” Refreshments and social hour begins at 7 p.m. and the program starts promptly at 7:30 p.m. Cattle were essential to the early New Hampshire settlements, and their contributions have been central to the life and culture of the state, from providing dietary sustenance to basic motive power, bovines had a deep and enduring bond with their keepers. They are still a vital part of the iconography of rural New Hampshire. Taylor will discuss where the state’s

cows are today and what role they continue to play in the state’s rural communities. The society will take a field trip to the Wright Museum in Wolfeboro on Saturday, August 27. A car pool will meet at Old Town Hall in Gilmanton Iron Works at 9:30 a.m. or people can drive directly to the museum on Route 28 in Wolfeboro at 10 a.m. The Gilmanton Historical Society offers a number of publications on the history of the town. They are available at all Society programs, at the Town Clerk’s Office, and at the Brick House in Gilmanton Corners. The Society’s museum, in the Academy Building, is open by appointment. Call curator Jeanine Moorhead 267-8870.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, August 19, 2011— Page 23

TICKETS from page one especially significant since June, July and August, represent a disproportionate share of the tickets issued and revenue collected. In 2010, 873 tickets were written in June and July, 70 -percent of all the tickets issued during the year. This June, the issuance of 50 tickets for parking in a handicapped space, each carrying a $50 fine, disguised the decrease in revenue in the first of the summer months. However, the 108 tickets issued this July generated $1,545 in revenue compared to $5,390 collected during the same month last year, a drop of 71-percent. The city budget for fiscal year 2012, which began July 1, reduced the appropriation to the Police Department for special duty and part-time salaries from $70,000 to $50,000. To meet the budget the department chose not to hire CROs. In the past, the department has employed one full-time and two part-time CROs during June, July and August at a cost of $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. When the absence of the CROs became apparent in June, Councilor Brenda Baer (Ward 4), the liaison to the Police Commission, took the initiative to ensure that funding for the positions would be restored in 2012. The council reallocated $10,000 from the 2011-2012 city budget while Police Chief Chris Adams agreed to apply $2,000 from the department’s budget to fund the CRPOs next summer. “They pay for themselves,” Baer said, adding that the larger problem of stepping up parking enforcement throughout the remainder of the year remains. Captain Steve Clarke told the Police Commission yesterday that the department has been working with the Department of Public Works and downtown business and property owners to develop a parking plan for downtown. He anticipated that a recommendation would be presented to the City Council in September or October.

SYRIA from page 2 Activists said security forces killed 18 people across the country on Wednesday, the same day Assad assured U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon that military and police operations had stopped. Syria’s U.N. Ambassador Bashar Ja’afari accused the U.S. of waging a “humanitarian and diplomatic war” against his country in order to instigate further violence by sending “the wrong message to the terrorist armed groups that they are under American and Western protection.” In Thursday’s coordinated statements, President Barack Obama and the leaders of Britain, France, Germany, Canada and the European Union called for Assad to resign, saying his repression of demonstrations inspired by this spring’s Arab upris-

STANDOFF from page one phen Akerstrom, together with Officers Eliza Paris, Joel Pickowicz and Gary Boisvert responded and met the victim and her daughter, who had left the residence. The victim told police that she and Keniston were arguing in their bedroom when he shoved her in the back. Keniston, she said, is a convicted felon and keeps Scott Keniston (Belmont Police photo) a shotgun in the house. After ignoring several orders to leave the house, Keniston stepped outside. Pickowicz, who was in front of the house, twice ordered him to show his hands and twice he refused before retreating inside. After nearly an hour and a half and as Captain Mark Lewandoski trained a spot light on the house, Boisvert spotted Keniston trying to flee. He was quickly apprehended and formally arrested. The victim agreed to allow police to search the home where they found a single-shot 12 guage shotgun. Keniston was convicted of burglary in 1985, twice in 1987 and again in 1997.

ings made him unfit to lead. The new effort signals the end of the world’s thin patience for Assad, once viewed as a Western-looking pragmatist who might expand freedoms at home and help achieve an Arab peace deal with Israel. The resignation calls were the first explicit demands from the U.S. and its allies for Assad to step down, although condemnation of his actions had been growing for weeks. Syria presented a different case than other Muslim nations swept by unrest this year. The United States used leverage from its billions of dollars in military aid to gradually ratchet up pressure on Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak to step down, and called early on for the ouster of Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi. But Washington has very little direct influence on Syria, long a pariah state accused of sponsoring terrorism. Syria does have wider trade and other ties with Europe and the Arab world, which complicated the U.S. position, and with neighbor Iran. Iran remains one of the Assad regime’s few allies, although those bonds are not deep.
