TILTON — Local police working with the N.H. State Police and the N.H. Attorney General announced yesterday that the Bristol man who pleaded guilty to assaulting a 4 and ½ month-old baby in Tilton in 1989 has now been charged with the murder of the same person. Authorities said the victim, Brian Wiggin, was an immobile quadriplegic due to the attack by Brian Watson, now 46. After Watson’s death on June 9, 2008, Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Thomas Andrew performed an autopsy and determined Wiggin died as the result of the injuries he received as a baby. In 1989, Watson lived with Brian’s mother, Tammy Wiggin, and baby-sat see MURdeR page 10

KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) — Diana Nyad ended her fourth attempt to swim across the Straits of Florida on Tuesday, her decades-old dream thwarted, more than anything else, by jellyfish. Storms brewing around her and repeated jellyfish stings forced her out of the water at 12:55 a.m., her crew said. She traveled by boat close to a rocky shoreline in Key West on Tuesday afternoon, just over 72 hours after setting out from Cuba. She made a final short swim to a waiting crowd. “I’ve been dreaming of this crossing for 35 years now and tried it four times. And should I say that there’s no disappointment? No,” she said. “I’m not going to get that moment I dreamed of for so long.” Nyad turns 63 on Wednesday and, all told, logged 41 hours and 45 minutes of swim time. Her team acknowledged at 8 a.m. that she had to be pulled from see NYAD page 8

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Rep. Todd Akin defied the nation’s top Republicans Tuesday and forged ahead with his besieged Senate bid, declaring the party was overreacting to his comments that women’s bodies can prevent pregnancies in cases of “legitimate rape” and by insisting he abandon his campaign. Akin pledged to carry on with his quest to unseat Democrat Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri. But his bid faced tall obstacles: a lack of money, a lack of party support and no assurance that his apologies would be enough to heal a self-inflicted political wound. “I misspoke one word in one sentence on one day, and all of a sudden, overnight, everybody decides, ‘Well, Akin can’t possibly win,’” he said on a national radio show hosted by former Republican presidential

candidate Mike Huckabee. “Well, I don’t agree with that.” Akin predicted he would bounce back from the political crisis threatening his campaign and capture a seat that is pivotal to Republican hopes of regaining control of the Senate. “I’m in this race for the long haul, and we’re going to win it,” he told radio host Dana Loesch in St. Louis. If he stays on the ballot, Akin will have to rebuild without any money from the national party and with new misgivings among rank-and-file Republican voters who just two weeks ago propelled him to a comfortable victory in a hotly contested three-way primary. In a potential sign of his strategy, Akin appealed Tuesday to Christian evangelicals, anti-abortion activists and anti-estab-

lishment Republicans. He said he remains the best messenger to highlight respect for life and liberty that he contends are crumbling under the big-government policies of President Barack Obama. Akin appealed to that audience directly during his interview with Huckabee, making allusions to the 9/11 terrorist attacks and focusing on the idea he had only misplaced a single word during a Sunday interview with St. Louis television station KTVI. But Akin has been roundly criticized both for using the words “legitimate rape” and saying a woman’s body has the ability to prevent conception after such an attack. Hours earlier, Akin posted an online video in which he apologized again for his remarks. Campaign spokesman Ryan Hite see AKIN page 10

MANTON, Calif. (AP) — As a lightningsparked wildfire raged near Lynn Rodgers’ home of less than a year, the evacuated resident said Tuesday she remained optimistic — in spite of her growing frustration and fear. “Yeah, but what can you do? Everything is in God’s hands — and the firefighters,” said Rodgers, who lives in Shingletown. Aided by a shift in winds, firefighters were making a stand against the fire, which has destroyed seven homes and prompted fearful residents to take shelter at a sports complex in nearby Redding.

Since igniting Saturday, the fire grew to more than 30 square miles. Nearly 1,900 firefighters were battling the blaze in rugged, densely forested terrain as it threatened 3,500 homes in the remote towns of Shingletown, Manton and Viola, about 170 miles north of Sacramento. The fast-moving fire is one of many burning across the West, where dry lightning has sparked up grass, brush and timber, bringing an early start to the fire season. Like Rodgers, many other evacuees were anxious to hear the latest information from officials. Dozens of people, as well as about a

dozen dogs, were waiting at the Redding gym. “The evacuation part? It’s hard because I don’t know what’s happening to the house up there,” said Jimmy Hall, a Shingletown resident whose family spent another night sleeping on cots. “It’s my dad’s house...There’s a lot of things in there,” Hall added. “I’ve heard that my friend is still up there protecting his house. It’s just hard. Look at how we’re sleeping.” Eric Kiltz, an emergency services coordinator for the American Red Cross, said see FIRE page 9

Alton police are looking for information regarding an incident in which a town-owned radar trailer was pushed over the side of an embankment near 235 Main Street. The act was discovered on Monday. (Courtesy photo)

Electronic speed information board belonging to Alton police vandalized ALTON — Police are investigating the apparent vandalism of a townowned radar trailer that was found at the bottom of an embankment on Monday. The trailer, a piece of equipment that monitors and displays the speed of passing drivers, was placed near 235 Main Street. On Monday, according to a police report, police were notified that the trailer was missing from its location. Shortly thereafter, it was discovered at the bottom of an embankment directly behind the home. Pittsfield Towing was hired to recover the trailer. The heavy chains that secured it in place had been cut, and the trailer had apparently been pushed over the embankment, tumbling about 30 feet before coming to a stop. The device sustained “significant damage,” according to the report, and will be out of service until repaired. The Police Department

has not yet determined how much the repairs will cost. Chief Ryan Heath, in the statement released to the media, wrote, “This crime was a senseless act of vandalism and one that will be prosecuted to the fullest degree possible. The radar trailer belongs to the Town of Alton and its residents. Crimes like these hurt the entire community and we need to send a message that it will not be tolerated. Talk to your friends and family members, we urge anyone with information about this crime to please come forward. All Alton residents are asked to keep a vigilant eye for any suspicious activity and report it immediately to the police department. We must work together to ensure Alton remains a safe community and that our assets are protected.” The police department can be reached at 875-0757. — Adam Drapcho

Dover fire said sparked by boy playing with lighter DOVER (AP) — Authorities say a boy playing with a lighter caused the fire at a New Hampshire apartment complex that damaged several units. The fire was reported Monday afternoon at the Westgate Village complex in Dover. No serious injuries have been reported. Police say a 9-year-old boy had been playing with a lighter in a breezeway,

causing the fire. WMUR-TV reports that the boy will not face charges but will be diverted to alternate programming instead of court. Four units have been damaged by the fire and four others by smoke and water. Police helped residents evacuate and the Red Cross is helping those who were displaced by the fire.

Worker cuts through oxygen supply line at LRGH LACONIA — Firefighters and police responded to Lakes Region General Hospital yesterday morning after a worker accidentally cut through a 3/4inch pipe that fed pure oxygen to the north wing of the hospital. Chief Ken Erickson said the Fire Department told the hospital to shut down the oxygen and prepared to assist them. He said the oxygen levels had

risen to 25-percent, from an optimal 21.6 and told them to ventilate the building to reduce the oxygen levels. Erickson said the Fire Department stood by with portable oxygen tanks in case the hospital needed them to serve the patients in the north wing or move them to another wing but the extra oxygen wasn’t needed. see OXYGEN page 7

‘Legitimate rape’ Rep. Todd Akin is staying in the Missouri Senate race, notwithstanding the calls of many fellow Republicans that he step aside after flaunting his ignorance about anatomy and his lack of empathy for the victims of rape so publicly over the weekend. “We’re created by God for some special purpose,” Akin told Mike Huckabee, explaining his decision to stay in the race. On the same day, the Republican Platform Committee, meeting in advance of the convention, adopted what critics are calling the “Akin Plank,” which would prohibit abortion even in the cases of rape and incest. A hundred years ago, a judge famously opined that it was “well nigh impossible” for a truly unwilling victim to be raped. I can tell you from experience that’s wrong. And then along comes Akin, telling a local anchor that victims — at least legitimate ones — can’t get pregnant when they are raped. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” He has admitted that he was wrong about that. But it’s not the only thing he’s wrong about. There is no such thing as “legitimate rape.” Children and adults get raped — by relatives, by socalled friends, by acquaintances, by strangers, and by angry and estranged spouses. When I was raped, more than 30 years ago, people kept asking me whether I’d really been raped. I wrote a book explaining that forced sex at the hands of a man you know can be just as terrifying as forced sex at the hands of a stranger, and that the cruelty of such a betrayal can inflict an injury just as great as the one suffered by women who are raped by strangers. As I put it 26 years ago, to be forced to have sex without consent is “real rape.” If anybody had told me then that I would still have to be making this point in 2012 — much less in response to a major party

candidate for Senate — I would not have believed it. After so many years in which women — and men — have been fighting to reform not only the laws prohibiting rape but also attitudes such as Akin’s, what has gone wrong? Rape is hard to prove. There are rarely witnesses. A frightened woman may rightly decide that resistance is futile and dangerous, leaving DNA evidence but no scars and bruises to support her claim that she did not consent. I just cried. But there also has been a backlash, spurred by the age-old belief that women will lie about rape, use it as a weapon against men who scorn them. Yet in all this time, there has not been one serious study establishing that the victims of rape are any more likely to make false claims than victims of other crimes. Yes, it happens, which is why police and prosecutors investigate before they prosecute. But it also happens that people lie about how their house burned down, who started the fight and whether they were acting in self-defense. If you have ever lived through the process of criminal prosecution of a rape charge, or witnessed a friend or loved one who has, you know how brutal it is, notwithstanding all the efforts to reform the system. The much bigger problem with rape is not how many women report unfounded claims, but how many women are afraid to report at all — because of fear of repercussions from the perpetrator and because of fear of the punishment the system will inflict, especially with men like Akin sitting on the jury, much less in the Congress.

LETTERS I would not even consider a gas tax hike until fund raiding stops To the editor, Context, order, and meaning are important. In a report of the August 20 Meredith Selectboard meeting, reporter Michael Kitch wrote, “Vadney said he would contemplate an increase (in the gas tax) if he was assured the funds would be applied to roads and bridges and Brothers agreed raising the gas tax would be acceptable.” Mr. Kitch implied that the exchange took place during the meeting. It did not! He asked the question after the meeting, and it was totally out of the context of the meeting. Further, I did not say I would support raising the gas tax, and Mr. Brothers did not say he agreed with me in raising the gas tax. Mr. Kitch’s wording implies Mr.

Brothers followed me in supporting an increase in the gas tax. In fact, Mr. Brothers answered first and gave many caveats about the problems with raising the gas tax. Following Mr. Brothers comments, I said that you need to go back many years to see how the gas tax fund started being raided by using the money for many items only peripherally related to highways and bridges, and is still being raided today. My point was that I would not even consider a gas tax increase until this issue is revisited and the money is once again recognized as being exclusively for building and maintaining roads and bridges. Selectman Herb Vadney Meredith

I don’t want any part of a person (Obama) who acts like dictator To the editor, Every week I read letters to the editor from individuals that tout why they support Obama. Mostly they just quote Democrat talking points. I’m writing this letter explaining the reasons I won’t vote for Obama. It would be easy to say it is because he acts like a Chicago thug, that he lies, that I didn’t like the bailout of two of our auto companies where he put the unions in front of the bond holders, or the disregard for the law regarding immigration, or the 30 czars that he appointed to avoid congressional oversight. I could list many more but I won’t, instead I will point out a much more serious concern with Obama. During the first two years of Obama, while Reed and Pelosi had total control over Congress, a myriad of laws were passed and actions taken which transferred too much powder to the Executive Branch. The now standard multi-thousand page laws written so the Obama bureaucracy and his appointees can interpret the vague wording they write. For example, ObamaCare has 2,700 pages with 2,500 references to the Secretary of Health and Human Services. This includes 700 instances where the secretary is instructed “shall” do something. The 2,300 pages of Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Act create new agencies not subject to any oversight.

There are more examples such as the EPA and the Department of Energy issuing new regulations regularly that are out of congressional overview. It is clear Obama was able to take advantage of the useful (to him) Democratic Congress to put more power in the Executive Branch. This has been set up so if Obama gets re-elected this will happen to a much greater degree since there won’t be enough Republicans in Congress to override a veto. Obama even stated off the record with the Russians that he would be more flexible after he is re-elected. It is almost certain that after he is reelected there will be a larger amnesty grant. The House has control of the purse, but once re-elected Obama has shown willingness, with help from the main stream media, of making it hard for Congress to do anything. He has contempt for the law and is willing to do blatant things knowing it is very time consuming for someone to sue to turn his plans around. Again, one only has to think immigration and welfare. Our only way of preventing this potentially very large change in our country is to not re-elect Obama. I have never liked politicians, but I clearly don’t want any parts of a person that acts like a dictator. Dick Hickok Gilford

LETTERS I’ve mowed my lawn to make yard more photogenic for O’Brien To the editor, An open letter to Gilford Selectman John O’Brien: In some recent e-mail correspondents I have expressed anger at you, after you revealed that you have photographed my property; well, I slept on it and decided that in the interest of cooperation perhaps I should just embrace what appears to be the new reality. With that in mind, today, I mowed my lawn in an attempt to make my property more photogenic. I also trimmed the bushes that are in front of my garage windows on the Morrill Street side of the property. Now you should have an unobstructed view of the contents of my garage. I should also point out that on the opposite side of the property, behind the large commercial vehicle, is a garden. This garden produces many more tomatoes and cucumbers then the average family of four could consume. There is even some peppers and broccoli (yuck). With this shocking revelation in mind, I should tell you that my property is not located within the agricultural zone. On that same side of the property you will find

two barrel/tumbler style composters used to compost food waste as well as a large 8’ X 8’ open air style compost bin used to compost grass clippings, leaves, and garden waste. I admit I do not have the proper permits required for a composting facility, feel free to take any action against me that you deem necessary. For quite some time now I have been thinking about replacing the old ugly wooden stockade fence with a modern 8’ PVC privacy fence. Do to the fact that this fence will be quite pricey I have dragged my feet on this project. I’m glad I did because, I am now considering an inexpensive chain-link fence, so that you and your friends can easily view my children in their play area. If there is anything else I can do to aide your politically motivated investigation into my life, please, just let me know. (P.S. This is satire, and is not serious. Nothing contained within this letter should be construed as in invitation to continue to invade my family’s privacy. These CREEPY tactics will not be tolerated!) Kevin D Leandro Gilford

I’ve two very good reasons not to send Republicans to Congress To the editor, There are two major reasons why I won’t vote Republican. If a ban on assault weapons came up for a vote in Congress today, it would be defeated by a majority of Republicans. After all, everyone, including insane people, have a right to buy a gun — any gun! We have seen, repeatedly, that mentally deranged people do get access to guns of any kind, and thousands of rounds of ammunition. No one, of any persuasion, wants to see this happen But this tragedy will be repeated because — accordingly, too many gun advocates, protected gun dealers, and gun organizations, who will repeat the same slogan, over and over, that everyone one has the right to own any gun!

The other reason is that a proposed vote that would bring our troops home from Afghanistan earlier than planned, was overwhelmingly defeated by a Republican Congress. Under no circumstance, would they even consider an early withdrawal. Could they rethink this proposal in view that the very people we are protecting, have turned against us and killed as least 10 of our soldiers this last week! Will anyone speak up and demand that we get out of that miserable country? Does anyone have the guts to make a bold statement for saving American lives? Leon R. Albushies Gilford

Youssef is candidate who is committed to tax caps that work To the editor, For the N.H. Senate seat now held by Jim Forsyth, there are two Republican candidates who are in a race with two different positions regarding my favorite topic, tax caps. Tax caps have proven to work. They should NEVER be overturned by any council. I have known Josh Youssef for several years. He always shown me he was very engaged with local and state issues. On several instances, we would have passing conversations and were never out of sync with our opinions. Josh built his business from the ground up. He then found a way to expand his business name and based on the number of franchises in the state; they must have agreed that it was a pretty successful name. In business, goodwill is just as important as the bottom line of revenue. As I was arriving this morning at St. Anselm College for the Romney/Ryan Rally, it was obvious to me that we have a “change” in the wind and thought of

Josh Youssef. There are a large portion of young people identifying themselves as Republicans and are just as engaged in trying to make a difference. They get it. What I don’t want is a candidate who is not committed to what DOES work. The tax cap works because it’s the taxpayer’s voice saying, “X amount is all you get this year. Figure out how to make it work.” In today’s media frenzy it takes a little “something” special for ANY individual to put themselves up to journalistic scrutiny and run for office. Newspapers spin faster than a Maytag. (personally, I never believe what I read... trust but verify) What I appreciate more is a candidate who honestly states their position and defends the basis of that opinion with facts. Josh Youssef will do us proud in Concord. I know he will protect our vote and our tax dollars. That is all I ask. Thank you for running Josh. Judy Krahulec Laconia

LETTERS What is price we pay for character assassination of candidates? To the editor, During this and the 2010 campaigns for those seeking national public office we have seen some really odious statements about opponents in the races. I have done an informal study of the roots of this phenomena. I will now attempt to dispassionately reveal some of the informal fallacies that feed into the maelstrom of scornful words. Fallacy #1: “The opposition is always wrong.” Any thinking person knows that can’t be proven. Fallacy #2: “If we attack long enough and loudly enough then those listening will believe us.” That one assumes that there are fewer than half those listening won’t take offence. It also fails to account for those who don’t listen and probably don’t vote either. Fallacy #3: “Most people can’t or don’t make up their minds without the help of the campaign ads that are repeated ad nauseum.” No explaining necessary on that one. So what is the price we pay, as a nation, for a continuation of personal character assassination of our candidates? Why can’t the discussion be limited failure to deliver the basic needs or proposals to change so that they can be delivered? The basics are pretty well defined by now. Not so well defined is whether the national government can furnish those basics. I’m pretty sure that the answers aren’t forthcoming because the candidates listen to those taking polls. Polls can be constructed to tell you what your big contributors see as needs. Both parties, in this era of unlimited contributions, share some of the guilt by association. Let’s step back from all that and get

to the basics as viewed by those who do 40+ hours of work a week and commute another 20 hours just to make a life. Those are the people that keep the nation running because they are committed to staying even with their mortgage, child and health care and, maybe some long-term savings. So Joe the Plumber, you remember him from the 2010 campaign, has a list of wants and needs. If he was careful, his mortgage is not in trouble. His house value is down but he still lives there. If he wasn’t careful or lucky, he has probably learned a new expletive and is now renting. Being a plumber and self-employed, he still has a job. There’s not as much new housing contracts, but plumbers are doing better than most of the sector of our economy. Health care is always a specter haunting Joe and the rest of us as well. Joe is making do there with some difficulty and a high deductible. He doesn’t do much in the way of preventive care because it is all “out of pocket.” That’s it for Joe! Now how are we meeting the needs of the sick, the elderly, the unemployed and those who furnish services to that population? What is the role of the national government in providing for the necessities of the needy. First of all, let’s be clear, this is not a party thing. What should the legislature and administrative parts of our government be doing for Joe and the needy people. Can reform be accomplished without compromise? As we approach the budgetary cliff projected, is either party willing to yield some sacred turf in the name of progress and survival? Bill Dawson Northfield

Comedy show continues with the Romney & Ryan budget fiasco To the editor, I’m beginning to feel sorry for both Romney & Ryan due to the lack of respect the Obama campaign has given them. Now that both R&R have put on their nice faces, maybe everyone will play nice in the sandbox with them. I can’t imagine why no one would. They have always treated everyone else with respect. But the Democrats are not nice people, just ask bin Laden. Of course they have tried to keep the unemployment levels high by filibustering all those job bills. Now I’ve heard the swift boat people are back. You know that bunch who back stabbed John Kerry, they roam around back alleys looking for someone to mug. Just imagine what they would have said about Bush if he got bin Laden, probably something like, “Way to go George – Mission Accomplished”. The comedy show continues with the R&R budget fiasco. Hopefully someone will be able to explain to both R&R the differences between the two programs. Both R&R say “they are the same except a minor difference but I haven’t compared them so can’t tell

you what it is” — trust me. Basicly neither R or R has a clue but they are trying to cover each other so when it comes to push and shove they can finger point at each other. Now they are calling Ryan a conservative purist; I would call him a spending purist as he will spend anything on everything unless it’s Obama’s idea. He will still lie about his spending afterwards like he did about the stimulus spending. Nope, not me, I never took a dime, until he was shown the papers asking for money with his name signed on them. So then he wants us to trust him. HA! Sounds more like Romney every day — will lie until caught will make excuses to cover his butt. And Romney still wonders why we want to see his tax returns. Odds are there is something phony and dis-honest hidden between the pages. I am still amazed that people are thinking about voting for either one of them. You may not like Obama but the O&B ticket makes the other look like the James Gang. Jon Hoyt Bridgewater

LHS students to be well hydrated thanks to ‘green grant’ courtesy Town of Meredith BY ROGER AMSDEN FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — When Laconia High School students and teachers start classes next Tuesday they’ll find among other changes at the school, which is in the midst of a major reconstruction and addition project, three hydration stations have been installed for their use. They’ll also get their own personal water bottle which they can fill at those stations, which dispense filtered water on demand,. All of this is made possible by a $5,000 “green grant’’ received by the

School District from the state Department of Environmental Services, according to Janet Brough, office administrator for the Superintendent of Schools. She said that the Green Team at the Laconia School District installed the hydration stations to encourage students to use refillable rather than disposable water bottles. Currently the cafeteria sells some 17,000 bottles of water a year. The goal of the Green Team is to reduce sales by 25-percent in the first year of the program. Students of the Huot Regional Technical Education Center helped install the stations.

Brough said that the hydration stations not only dispense water but also keep track of how many bottles have been filled, which will make it easy to keep track of how well the program is working. Funds for the program came from a fine of $30,000 levied by the state Department of Environmental Services against the town of Meredith, where during the winter of 2009-10 a Department of Public Works crew inadvertently dumped snow laden with salt and grit into a wetland. The crew immediately recognized the mistake, and removed the snow and restored the wetland. Town offi-

cials also informed the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services of the incident, taking full responsibility for it. Nevertheless, DES levied a fine of $30,000 against the town. To defray the fine, the town contributed $5,000 toward furnishing the DES’s facility in Franklin and staged workshops on snow removal for employees of neighboring towns. It also awarded three “Green Grants,” of $5,000 to three different schools, Laconia High School, Sandwich Elementary School and Campton Elementary School.

Parks Department asking for $900k in improvements in 2013-14; $110k at Wyatt Park BY ROGER AMSDEN FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — A draft capital improvements program which seeks $910,000 for seven priority projects in 2013-2014 was presented to the Laconia Parks and Recreation Commission Monday night by Kevin Dunleavy, who overseas the city’s parks and facilities. More than half of that money, some $500,000, would go towards construction of a community park at the Weirs, a project which has been in the works ever since 1976 when the parkland which is located behind the Weirs Community Center on Lucerne Avenue was acquired with federal funds. A grant is being sought from the National Park Service’s Land and Water Conservation Fund for the project, which would also use a city capital improvements bond issue for funding. Other projects include: — Demolition and reconstruction of the Opechee Park House, $130,000. — Wyatt Park reconstruction, $110,000 — Leavitt and Memorial Park tennis court resurfacing and repairs, $52,000 — Endicott Rock Park beach restoration engineering, $50,000 — Memorial Park bleacher replacement, $28,000 from preceding page Ramon comes with his own spending money and medical insurance. For more information on the program contact Linda Coffey CCI-Local Coordinator

— Purchase of a three-quarter ton 4x4 truck with plow, $40,000. Dunleavy said that the Weirs area is the only one in the city without a designated playground and that a conceptual plan for the park has been developed by Dubois & King Engineering last year which would see a playground, trail system, picnic pavilion, restrooms and an amphitheater constructed. He said that the Weirs Community Park Association and the Weirs Action Committee have worked for over 20 years to make the project happen and have donated significant volunteer time to that effort and ‘’all they have is a parking lot. There’s a significant level of frustration that more hasn’t been done.’’ Commission Chairman Jeff Pattison said that while he could understand that sentiment he was more concerned about maintaining existing facilities. ‘’We should take care of them before we OXYGEN from page 3 LRGH Public Relations Director Natalie Rudzinskyj said yesterday that everything was running smoothly and the hospital was waiting for the certified oxygen supplier to inspect the system. She said the break occurred in the North Tower’s new Endoscopy Suite and affected the Telemetry Unit. She said no patients needed to be relocated although hospital staff and firefighters remained there to assist should relocation be necessary. “Everything went very well,” Rudzinskyj said.

build something new that we will also have to maintain,’’ he said. The Wyatt Park plan unveiled by Dunleavy, which would see a single full court basketball court replace the existing two courts but in a new location, next to Garfield Street, at a cost

of about $50,000, was questioned by Ward 4 Councilor Brenda Baer, who said that she thought the tenor of the most recent meeting about Wyatt Park had shown a preference among nearby residents for leaving the courts where they are.

GUNSTOCK from page one struck by a following chair and thrown from the platform. Deputy Chief Richard Andrews of Gilford Fire-Rescue said that the team of nine dispatched to the scene in four vehicles arrived to find that personnel of Gunstock Safety Services had reached the victims and were evaluating and treating them. Staff from Gunstock took two EMTs to the summit in an all-terrain vehicle. On examining the injured the EMTs, at 10:46 a.m., requested a helicopter from the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Advanced Response Team (DHART) to transport the lift attendant, who appeared to have suffered serious head trauma, to the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. Although a landing zone was prepared in the parking lot, the helicopter was able to put down on the summit of

Gunstock Mountain at 11:15 a.m. and left with its patient just six minutes later. Andrews said that by landing atop the mountain, the helicopter significantly reduced the time needed to transport the patient to the hospital. The woman was taken off the mountain by the all-terrain vehicle and a pickup truck and reached the base area by 11:20 a.m., less than an hour after the two fell. Gilford Fire-Rescue took her to Lakes Region General Hospital. Both Goddard and Andrews stressed the prompt response and close cooperation of the Gunstock Safety Services and Gilford Fire-Rescue in overcoming challenging terrain to reach, evaluate and transport the injured. “Fortunately we have had very incidents,” Goddard said, “but, we have always worked very together when necessary.”

Gilford collector hopes historic flag display at public library sparks interest in U.S. history By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

GILFORD — Walt Stockwell, who has been collecting flags for more than 35 years, proudly refers to himself as a ‘’vexillophile’’, which dictionaries define as a person who collects and displays flags and alternately a person who studies flags, their history and meaning. It is the later definition that Stockwell says is what he’s about. He loves to share the history of the more than 150 flags he’s collected and says that he hopes the town’s bicentennial celebration will prompt more people to take an interest in not only in the flags but the history they embody. This month he has put together a display of 20 of his flags which are currently being exhibited at the Public Library as part of the celebration. And he’s written a pamphlet explaining the origin of each of the flags and what was happening in Gilford at the time that they were being flown. He says that one of his favorites is the “Don’t Give Up the Ship’’ flag, which was created in 1813, one year after Gilford separated from Gilmanton and formed its own township. ‘’Not many people realize that there was a naval battle on the Great Lakes in the war of 1812 and this is a reminder of that bit of history’’ says Stockwell. He said tradition has it that Captain James Lawrence said these heroic words after being mortally wounded in the engagement between his ship, the U.S. frigate Chesapeake, and HMS Shannon on June 1, 1813, just outside of Boston harbor. As the wounded Lawrence was carried below, he ordered “Tell the men to fire faster! Don’t give up the ship!” Stockwell said that although Chesapeake was forced to surrender to the British, Captain Lawrence’s words lived on as a rallying cry during the war. Oliver Hazard Perry honored his dead friend Lawrence when he had the motto sewn onto the private battle flag flown during the Battle of Lake Erie, on September 10, 1813. Perry then sent off what would become an immortal dispatch to Major General William Henry Harrison, “We have met the enemy and they are ours — two

ships, two brigs, one schooner and one sloop.” The victory secured the Great Lakes region for the United States and ended the threat of invasion from Canada. Stockwell says he was inspired to set up the display at the library by a display of American flags that Dr. Kelley J. White has been displaying at her home in Gilford Village. Among the flags he has on display is the Bedford Flag, which has a Latin verse which translates as ‘’Conquer or Die’’ and was probably one of the banners used at Concord Bridge in April of 1975, a battle which preceded Bunker Hill at which a number of settlers from Gilmanton fought. under the command of General John Stark. There’s also the Guilford (S.C.) Courthouse Flag from 1781, the Revolutionary War battle in which Colonel Lemuel Bickford Mason fought and for which the town, with the exception of a missing ‘’U’’ is named. Mason, one of the most influential of the early settlers in what is now Gilford, at one time owned all of what would become Governors Island, and was chosen to pick the name of the new township. He was also called back into service that same year to fight in the War of 1812. There’s also a 13-star Hopkinson flag, which Stockwell says is most likely the first 13-star flag, preceding that made by Betsy Ross, and was created by a Francis Hopkinson, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. He notes that on April 12, 1776, 115 Gilmanton citizens signed the ‘’Test Act’’, which expressed the sentiments which would come to be embodied in the Declaration of Independence. Stockwell, who says he was bitten with the flag bug during the 1976 Bicentennial, is a Korean War veteran who moved to New Hampshire from the Worcester, Mass., area 17 years ago. He said that it was his involvement with Boy Scout programs in his home town of Sterling, Mass., at that time that got his flag collection started. Since that time he’s added extensively to his collection and is always on the lookout for old flags in good condition to add to his collection. He’s been the featured speaker before many historical and civic groups and in schools on flag history. see next page

LACONIA — City police continue to investigate an early morning burglary at the Belknap Gas and Convenience Store on Union Avenue. City police say an alarm triggered at 1:49 a.m. yesterday and when officers arrived they found the front glass door broken. Canine Officer Kevin Shortt and K-9 Jagger conducted a track but were able able to locate the suspects. Video surveillance cameras indicated three young white men entered the store and stole two cases of Budweiser Beer, one case of Natural Lite beer, and 20 cartons of various types of brands of cigarettes. Two of the men were described as about 6-feet tall and thin, while a third man is described as about 5-feet 7-inches. He is also described as thin. Police said both of the taller men wore lightcolored hooded sweatshirts with dark jeans and tennis shoes. One of them had dark writing across the front of his sweatshirt and a white stripe across the middle of his shoe. The other tall man had white shoelaces. The shorter man, said police, was wearing a white baseball hat, a white T-shirt and white basketball shorts. Police said the three men appeared to have fled along Gilford Avenue. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Laconia Police at 524-5252 or the Greater Laconia Crime Line at 524-1717. BELMONT from page one

By a margin of 179 to 137 the town also voted to discontinue Mill Street Extension — or the portion of Mill Street that runs Main Street back to the Belmont Mill. This is the third time voters have gone to the polls regarding the town’s potential purchase of the former bank building. The first vote was in 2008 when, after a January special town meeting, voters rejected a proposal to buy it for $300,000 from former owners Tony and Loretta Brown. The vote was 134 for the purchase to 143 against. At the 2010 regular town meeting, voters again rejected a proposal to buy the building and property from the McDonoughs for $275,000. The vote was 311 for town ownership to 421 against. The McDonoughs purchased the lot and building from the Browns in January of 2010 for $275,000. Selectmen have said that if they can successfully negotiate the purchase of the building they would look into the possibility of using it for the Belmont Town Offices. The closing of Mill Street Extension is to allow for better use of the Belmont Village area that is currently being revitalized. The bank building presently has one tenant — The Vault hairdressing salon — and they are in the process of relocating to a site at 8 Church Street.

Under rules set by the World Open Waters Swimming Association, she could emerge from the water and preserve her chance at a record if her life was in danger. All of that was made moot by the fact that she didn’t finish.

10-year-old Laconia girl fitted for new glass eye courtesy of Bedford company By Gail OBer


LACONIA — After spending the morning in Bedford, the 10-year-old girl who recently lost her glass eye swimming was fitted for a new one courtesy of Studley Ocular Laboratories yesterday. Lindsey Kazanovicz-Boyle, whose father owns the company that has labs in Maine and Massachusetts as well as New Hampshire, said she saw the story and fund-raising efforts regarding Jennifer Miller of Laconia on WMUR TV. “This is what we do, I said to myself, “ she said yesterday, adding she immediately called her father who agreed to reach out to Jennifer and the Miller family. Boyle said Jennifer and her aunt, Christine Jenot who led the fund-raising efforts for her niece, came to the lab yesterday morning and Jennifer was not only fitted for a permanent replacement but was also fitted for a temporary prosthetic eye that is a reasonable approximate to the one currently being fashioned. “It look pretty good,” said Boyle. MURDER from page one her two sons while she worked at a convenience store. Watson told police that on the night of the assault — Dec. 20, 1989 — Brian had started crying and wouldn’t stop. He said he shook the baby until he stopped crying and then threw him onto a love seat and heard a snap. On March 1, 1991 Watson, then 26, pleaded guilty to second-degree assault in Belknap County Superior Court and received a 2 1/2-to-7-year sentence in the N.H. State Prison. Yesterday, Watson was arrested by Bristol Police and charged with one count of reckless seconddegree homicide. The complaint says Watson caused Wiggin’s death by using physical force, including but not limited to, shaking and throwing him when he from preceding page ‘’One thing that’s really neat about having so many flags is that you can use different ones in each new program so you’re not always repeating yourself but offering something new to each different audience,’’ says Stockwell. He said that his program ‘’It’s a Grand Old Flag’’ focuses on the history and evolution of the American flag and that he can be reached at 603-556-9251 or by e-mail at

Explaining the process a little bit, Boyle said the first trip to the lab involves measuring the eye socket by a process that she said is very similar to making a dental impression. “We fill the space and tells us exactly what her eye socket needs to look like,” she said. She said the whole process will take two more visits and Jennifer will be able to sit in the lab while a specialized technician hand paints her new eye. Boyle said Studley Ocular has also made arrangements to have Jennifer examined twice annually to make sure her eye still fits properly. She said a 10-year-old grows so quickly that if she isn’t closely monitored, there is chance she could outgrow her new eye and the same thing could happen. Boyle said they have many children who are patients and their goal is to make them feel comfortable. She said Jennifer was a little nervous at first, largely because she barely remembered the time when she was 5-year-old that she was fitted for the eye she lost, but that she relaxed and was laughing by the time she left.

Jennifer lost her eye to cancer when she was 9-months old. To date, the Website has raised $5,785 plus the proceeds of a spaghetti dinner held at the Laconia Elks Club over the weekend. Boyle said the goal now is to protect Jennifer’s good eye by getting her a decent pair of glasses and some specially crafted goggles for her to wear while she plays sports. Jennifer said she likes swimming, but, as a fifth grader at Woodland Heights Elementary School, really likes to play soccer and basketball. Any money raised for Jennifer Miller is in a trust fund that Jenot said will help her in the future with care and maintenance for her prosthetic eye and for glasses and goggles to protect it. If there is money left when Jennifer turns 18, it will go to a scholarship fund for her. Contributions can be made on line at www. or by mail to Meredith Village Savings Bank, 393 South Main St. Laconia in care of the Jennifer Miller Fund.

of his life. Police said they had repeated contacts with him after his release from prison that include a conviction for criminal threatening.

FIRE from page 2 “there’s more frustration than anxiety, and people, for the most part are grateful they have a safe and secure place to stay, even though their home may be lost.” Gov. Jerry Brown announced Tuesday that National Guard troops will be assisting with the firefighting efforts. The news comes a day after the Federal Emergency Management Agency said it is offering federal funds to help fight the blaze. Remnants of the fire spotted in some homes included melted satellite dishes, burned furniture and charred refrigerators. As the wildfire burned, massive amounts of smoke poured from the forest. The fire forced the closure of Highway 44 and other roads, and prompted the declaration of an emergency in Shasta County. Bonnie Maloy, who left her home in Shingletown, along with her husband Bill, described the scene as they fled the flames as “frantic at first.” “Then I said, ‘Let’s calm down,’ and we got everything that’s important, things we couldn’t replace:

animals, kids, photo albums,” she said. Rodgers said her family employed a similar strategy prior to getting the call Saturday to leave their home. Rodgers, her husband Derek and their two sons loaded up their belongings and two dogs and two cats. The family stayed at a motel before joining others at the Redding sports complex Sunday. Since then, Rodgers said she’s staying busy by volunteering and cleaning up around the complex. “It’s our home right now, so for the time being, we should all be appreciative and take care of it,” Rodgers said. Elsewhere in California, a massive wildfire in Plumas National Forest grew over the weekend due to winds. The blaze, about 120 miles north of Sacramento, has consumed 79 square miles since it started at the end of July and threatens about 900 homes. In Mendocino County, the sheriff’s office issued a mandatory evacuation for residents in Covelo due to a wildfire that has burned 10 square miles of thick timber and rugged terrain. The blaze was sparked by lightning Saturday in a remote area, making it difficult for fire crews to access.

Friends & family remembering Joe Holiday on Wednesday

BELMONT — Friends and family of Joseph Polovick are joining with his family today in marking the one-year anniversary of his passing. Polovick, better known as “Joe Holiday”, and his wife Kathy operated the Top of the Town restaurant for 24 years. Polovick died on August 22, 2011, at Elliot Hospital in Manchester. He had been a resident of Gilford for 32 years and was 64 at the time of his death. Today, local businesses with electronic sign boards are displaying messages in Polovick’s honor. Befitting a man with an oversized personality, Polovick was much more in his life than a restaurateur. A lifelong musician, he often provided the entertainment at the Top of the Town. He had served as president of the Belmont Rotary Club and was a member of the Elks and the American Legion. He was also a windsurfing instructor, an amateur pilot and a fisherman. A veteran of the U.S. Army, Polovick was laid to rest in the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery in Boscawen. At the Top of the Town today, the Polovick family is serving one of Joe’s favorite menus and welcomes a visit from those who wish to recall a lost friend. — Adam Drapcho Walter and Jeanne Damon have operated the Sandy Point Restaurant in Alton for about 30 years.

Baked stuffed lobster to go; long-time owners of Sandy Point Restaurant to retire at end of season By Mike Mortensen FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

ALTON — After 30-plus years of serving up baked stuffed lobster, prime rib and other favorites, Jeanne and Walter Damon have decided to retire from the restaurant business. Come this Columbus Day weekend the Alton couple will bring down the curtain on their operation of the Sandy Point Restaurant in Alton Bay. It’s been a long ride and good one, say the Damons. But after more than three decades of the hectic pace of running a restaurant, they have decided it’s time to take things just a little bit slower. Walter will continue to teach math at Coe-Brown Academy in Northwood and he has no immediate plans to retire from the classroom. “Teaching is my true passion,” he says, but quickly adds that being the restaurant’s head chef has had its rewards, too. Actually, Walter Damon, who like his wife grew up in nearby New Durham, began working at the Sandy Point Restaurant long before he started teaching. He began as a dish washer while in high school, he recalled, and later moved up to greater responsibilities in the kitchen. In the early 1980s the Damons took the reins of the Sandy Point Restaurant, first managing the establishment for the Ouellette family, the owners of the Sandy Point Beach Resort, and then, in 1984, acquiring the restaurant business and operating it under a lease agreement. The Damons are confident that the Ouellettes will find the right person to operate the restaurant when it reopens for the 2013 season on Mother’s Day weekend. The Damons say they have worked diligently to strengthen the restaurant’s reputation for generous portions of high-quality meals. Not surprisingly, the baked stuffed lobster (including a 2 1/4 pound portion), and the prime rib of beef (with the largest cut being 28 ounces), are Sandy Point’s signature dishes. “We have customers that come from Maine who tell us the lobster here is better than back where they’re from,” Jeanne Damon said. But while some things have stayed the same during the years the Damons have run Sand Point, there have also been changes — both in the menu and customer habits. “The area has changed and tourism has changed,” said Walter Damon. Back in the 1980s most of the restaurant’s customers were vacationers who were staying in one of the area’s motels or cottage colo-

nies. “There was a lot of (customer) turnover,” he said. Today the restaurant’s patrons are more likely to be people who have a second home or condominium in the area or rent a motel room or cottage for a week or two, or longer. Also, the fact that there are now fewer nighttime amusements in Alton Bay means few people want to eat after 8 o’clock. The menu has changed with the times, too, “We have more baked seafood now,” said Jeanne. “Before most of our seafood we served was fried.” Over the years, the Sandy Point has had its share of celebrity diners. There have been a number of NASCAR drivers, Jeanne said. And Walter, being a sports fan, particularly remembers when Red Sox legend Ted Williams, onetime Sox pitcher Luis Tiant, longtime Bruins’ defenseman Ray Bourque, and the late NHL coach Pat Burns stopped for a meal. “Ted Williams sat right there,” Walter said pointing to one of the booths in the 200-seat restaurant. Sadly there are no photographs, autographs or other memorabilia to commemorate those notable patrons. Walter says he regrets that. The other thing he regrets is not having pictures taken every year of entire restaurant staff which typically numbers more than 60, including servers, bartenders, dish washers, and cooks. Operating a restaurant in a resort area during the summer tourist season is busy enough. But juggling that job with teaching is especially demanding now that Water Damon, who is 63, is back in the classroom at Coe-Brown. He’s up at 5 a.m. in order to get to Northwood in time for the start of classes and then as soon as school lets out he heads directly to the restaurant to make sure everything is ready for the dinner crowd. He will keep up that pace through Labor Day. After that and until Columbus Day weekend the restaurant will be open only on weekends. With only a few weeks left before the Damons serve their last meal at Sandy Point, they say will miss their customers, some of whom have come to Sandy Point year after year to celebrate a birthday or anniversary. And the Damons say they are also especially grateful to three generations of the Ouellette family which gave them the opportunity to operate the restaurant. “I’m sure the decision to retire from the restaurant will hit me next April,” Water Damon said with a smile. That’s when he and his wife would start planning for the coming season.

AKIN from page 2 said the apology was intended to cover both the reference to “legitimate rape” and Akin’s assertion that rape victims have a natural defense against pregnancy. The video will run as a 30-second ad on TV stations statewide for several days, Hite said. Tuesday was the final day in which Akin could withdraw from the race without a court order. As the 5 p.m. deadline to withdraw neared, Republican leaders intensified their pressure on Akin to exit. Sen. Roy Blunt issued a joint statement Tuesday with all four of Missouri’s living former Republican senators — John Ashcroft, Kit Bond, Jim Talent and John Danforth — saying “it serves the national interest” for Akin to step aside. Pointing to the group, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said the congressman should “accept their counsel.” A Romney aide said the candidate had been inclined to let Akin make the decision on his own. But after the Missouri lawmakers called for Akin to go, Romney wanted to make his position clear, said the aide, who requested anonymity because the aide was not authorized to publicly discuss Romney’s thinking. Akin provoked the political uproar when he was asked in the KTVI interview whether his general opposition to abortion extends to women who have been raped. “It seems to me, first of all, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down,” Akin said. It’s not clear if Akin’s campaign will have the financial support to wage a prolonged advertising battle against McCaskill in the expensive St. Louis and Kansas City markets and the Republican-rich area of southwest Missouri. The campaign arm of the Senate Republicans has already withdrawn $5 million in advertising planned for the Missouri race. The Karl Rove-backed Crossroads organization pulled its ads, too. A fundraiser planned in Washington for next month was called off after all of the dozen GOP senators who had agreed to participate pulled out. Crossroads President and CEO Steven Law suggested Tuesday that Akin was potentially helping Democrats retain their Senate majority by remaining in the race. “The stakes in this election are far bigger than any one individual,” said Brian Walsh, a spokesman for the National Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee. By staying in the race, Akin “is putting at great risk many of the issues that he and others in the Republican Party are fighting for.”

Father Bolduc creates medallion to honor Gilford’s 200th By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

GILFORD — As residents revel in the town’s bicentennial celebrations this weekend, Father Hector Bolduc of the Immaculate Conception Church has provided his neighbors with a lasting memento of the 200th anniversary of the founding of the town in the form of a memorial medallion. Struck in a gold tone, the medallion bears the town seal on one side while the bicentennial is remembered on the other, along with a reminder that Gilford is the lone town in New Hampshire to take its name from the site of a battle in the Revolutionary War. As a note accompanying the medallion explains, the battle of Guilford Court House in North Carolina led ultimately to the British surren-

der at Yorktown, Virgina. A veteran of the battle, Lemuel Mason, was among those who led the effort to carve a new town from the northern part of Gilmanton, known as the Gunstock Parish, and was given the honor of naming it when it was formed on June 16, 1812. Either by error or design Guilford became Gilford and has remained so ever since. The medallions are on sale for $20 at the Department of Public Works, Kitchen Cravings and the Gilford Public Library, which also offers memorial sun catchers fashioned by Herman Defregger and bicentennial calendars featuring the work of local photographers. The medallions and other keepsakes will also be available on Saturday and Sunday at the Bicentenntial Committee’s table.

Cook has another tough outing as Red Sox fall to Angels, 5-3 BOSTON (AP) — Another series-opening loss and the Boston Red Sox continued their tumble out of the AL’s wild-card chase. Dropping a series opener for the eighth time in 10 tries, the Red Sox lost their fifth in seven games with a 5-3 setback against the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night. “Play better collectively as a group. We’re just not playing together,” right fielder Cody Ross said. “It seems like we get chances, opportunities, have pitchers on the ropes and try to do too much.” One day after shutting down Carl Crawford for the season with a ligament injury in his left elbow, manager Bobby Valentine tried a lineup shuffle to

Boston has also been without designated hitter David Ortiz, who has been sidelined since July 18 with a strained right Achilles. “You’re talking about two big pieces on this team,” Ross said. “But at the same time, every team has superstars that get hurt throughout the year. We have to pick those guys up and we’re not doing it.” Mark Trumbo hit his career-high 30th homer, Ervin Santana pitched 6 1-3 solid innings and the Angels .

League of NH Craftsmen Meredith Retail Gallery hosting ornament maker Aaron Slater MEREDITH — The League of NH Craftsmen Meredith Retail Gallery will host a fine craft demonstration with Aaron Slater, on Saturday August 25, from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. Slater will be demonstrating the techniques and steps involved Aaron Slater will give a demin creating his handonstration of how he crecrafted ornament Woodated the Woodland Treasure land Treasure, which ornament Saturday at the NH was selected to be the Craftsmen Retail Gallery in League of NH CraftsMeredith. (Courtesy photo) men’s Annual Ornament for 2012. This demonstration is free and all are welcome. Slater is a master glass craftsman who enjoys creating pieces that reflect nature and incorporate found objects. Woodland Treasure is a glass acorn fused to an actual acorn cap. The ornament is further embellished with an embossed copper oak leaf. The acorn and leaf are attached to a handmade copper hook so that the ornament can be hung on a tree or wreath. The inspiration for Woodland Treasure came from Aaron’s curio cabinet of found objects. “My wife and

I started collecting acorns during our hikes. I was attracted to the acorn’s shape and how the cap hugs the acorn. The ornament is my vision of the icy glaze that an acorn has after a winter storm,” said Slater. Slater is a self-taught glass artist, who has been working in glass for 11 years. He grew up in Londonderry and, when he was four years old, got his first exposure to glassblowing at the Annual League of NH Craftsmen’s Fair. “Years later, I remember being fascinated by a PBS show about glass artist Dale Chihuly. It had an impact on me, because I started using my dad’s plumbing torch to melt bottles in our basement.” Slater has been a juried member of the League of NH Craftsmen since 2010, and teaches flame working and marble making in his studio in Lowell, MA. He specializes in creating glass spheres, or marbles, that have complex designs and objects within them. The League’s annual ornament selection, now in its 25th year, is open to all juried League craftspeople. The ornament is selected by the managers of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen retail galleries, located in Center Sandwich, Concord, Hanover, Littleton, Meredith, Nashua, and North Conway. Woodland Treasure ornaments are sold exclusively by the League of NH Craftsmen Meredith Retail Gallery, located at 279 Daniel Webster Highway (next to The Inn at Church Landing), the other retail galleries.

These awards, $5,000 from the Pardoe Foundatiom and $2,500 from 3M will allow Genesis Behavioral Health to support mental health clinician time at schools in need of additional mental health resources. “Our clinicians are already located in several school districts in the region,” said Maggie Pritchard, Executive Director of Genesis Behavioral Health, “This improves access to care for the student and family, who often face challenges with transportation and taking time from work for appointments. It also allows us to partner more effectively with the schools, providing them with support and producing the best outcomes for the child.” The two grants will provide funding for services that clinicians are not currently able to provide, such as attendance at meetings, crisis intervention and consultation with school staff, as well as providing information regarding mental health treatment. Ray Barrett, Director of Children & Family Services

at Genesis Behavioral Health said, “We look forward to enhancing our current partnerships with area schools with these additional resources while integrating mental health services in school settings.” Founded in 1989, the Samuel P. Pardoe Foundation supports education, land resource management and social service programs in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. The Samuel P. Pardoe Foundation has a particular interest in programs that provide educational and economic opportunities for underprivileged persons, especially children. 3M is a diversified technology company serving customers and communities with innovative products and services. Each of their six businesses has earned leading global market positions and they have multiple locations worldwide, including Tilton. Their Health and Human Services Community Giving Program helps enrich the lives of youth and strengthens families. Genesis Behavioral Health is the Lakes Region’s community mental health center, serving Belknap and Southern Grafton Counties. A non-profit organization, Genesis provides services and programs to the community’s children, adults and elderly and serves over 3,000

The Laconia Adult Education Program will be offering the above required pre-nursing courses during the Fall Semester 2012. The New Hampshire State Nursing Program requires a High School level Chemistry with a Lab, Algebra I, and Human Biology with a Lab as entrance level courses for those people going into the nursing profession.

Holograms present celebs with new afterlife issues

LOS ANGELES (AP) — When Tupac Shakur rose from the stage in the California desert earlier this year, it was not only a jaw-dropping resurrection, but also the beginning of a new form of live entertainment. “Come with me,” the digital Shakur called out, not just to tens of thousands of screaming fans but seemingly to other artists. Follow, they will. Elvis Presley’s estate announced it has authorized holograms of the King of Rock, Marilyn Monroe’s estate has expressed interest and there’s no shortage of other beloved stars whose fans would die to see them perform again. Advances in digital artistry make it all possible, presenting celebrity estates with new commercial and creative opportunities, but also some ethical quandaries. “I think we’ve scratched the surface with Tupac,” said Dylan Brown, a filmmaker who along with director Philip Atwell and effects studio Digital Domain helped bring the Shakur hologram to life. “If it’s done tastefully, like Tupac was done tastefully, I think it could be a wonderful form of entertainment.” Brown, owner of The Yard Entertainment, and Atwell, owner of Geronimo Films, had each toyed with the idea of using holograms in concerts for a decade, but the technology wasn’t there. Brown, who works closely with Snoop Dogg and Atwell, who collaborates with Dr. Dre, knew that once they chose Shakur for the holographic debut, it had to be more than just a technological marvel. “We wanted to be really respectful of the family see HOLOGRAM page 23

ers Robbie and Brittany Bergquist at the ages of 12 and 13. The charity has since provided more than 150 million minutes of free talk time to servicemen and women stationed around the world. Funds raised from the recycling of cellular phones are used to purchase prepaid international calling cards. On average, Cell Phones for Soldiers distributes 12,000 calling cards each week to bases around the world, care package programs, deployment ceremonies and VA hospitals. “Each year we have been humbled by the amount of people and organizations like Northway Bank that take the initiative to support our troops,” said co-founder Brittany Bergquist. “We also have watched the communication gap between our armed forces and their loved ones continue to grow as more troops are deployed.” Donated phones are sent to Michigan-based ReCellular for recycling. For every donated phone valued at just $5, Cell Phones for Soldiers is able to provide two and a half hours of free talk time to deployed troops. For more information, please visit or



Years Experience


BERLIN — Northway Bank and non-profit Cell Phones for Soldiers Inc. are asking New Hampshire residents to help troops call home by donating gently-used cellular phones. Although the military landscape is ever changing, as many as 369,000 troops are serving in the U.S. military overseas around the world. By donating to Cell Phones for Soldiers, New Hampshire residents can provide troops with that precious connection to loved ones back home. During the month of August, residents can donate their phones at all 17 Northway Bank locations throughout the state. Visit northwaybank. com for a list of locations. “We’re proud to support the troops from our community and all over the country as they serve overseas. Cell Phones for Soldiers is a great organization and wonderful concept. Each year we participate in this program, we are overwhelmed by the community’s response,” said Richard Sidor, Assistant Vice President at Northway Bank.

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Children will have fun with pretend games that involve acting like adults, and adults will enjoy taking part in activities of childhood. Such reversals will make you smile. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Something you once felt strongly about doesn’t currently seem like all that big of a deal. Your shift in perspective is a sign that you’re on to bigger and better things. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You don’t have to pave your own road in order to get where you want to go, unless where you’re going is somewhere no one has gone before. Make it easy on yourself. Use established roads. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Money that’s yours free and clear makes life easier for you. Money that has expectations and strings attached to it makes life harder. You’ll make financial choices accordingly. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Some say that first impressions aren’t important; others say they are all important. You’ll go out of your way to project the right message with your image, but you’ll be forgiving of others who don’t. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 22). Your optimism is warranted. You’ll finish what you started last year, inking a contract in September. Love warms your heart when the weather turns cold. What happens at your request in November improves your life and the lives of others, so speak up. January sees you entertaining and wheeling and dealing. Aries and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 49, 1, 24, 38 and 18.


ARIES (March 21-April 19). The feeling of being in control is one of the keys to mental health. That is why you are careful not to get in the way of your loved one’s decision-making process even when you don’t entirely agree. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You are sensitive to another person’s needs, though you also feel that your privacy is a precious right. Therefore, you will take measures to prevent a possible imposition. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Though it’s tempting to stick with the people you know and adore, exclusivity can be hurtful. So you make an effort to include others. Lives are improved by your openness and kindness. CANCER (June 22-July 22). There is something lovely about your current awareness, though it won’t last. You’re on the brink of a revelation. Once your eyes are opened, you won’t be able to unknow or unsee. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Are you acting out of a sense of independence, or are you just being stubborn? “The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one often comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won’t.” -- Henry Ward Beecher VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Increase your level of exercise in order to counteract the extra-strong energy you’re dealing with now. Physical exertion keeps you from being quick to anger and helps you stay calm when it matters. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll have an increasing awareness of how the heroes of yesteryear paved a trail so that your life could be easier and better. You’ll do something in the name of progress.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, August 22, 2012— Page 19

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Wednesday, Aug. 22, the 235th day of 2012. There are 131 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Aug. 22, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln publicly responded to Horace Greeley’s “Prayer of Twenty Millions,” which had urged Lincoln to take more drastic steps in abolishing slavery; Lincoln replied that his priority was saving the Union, but also repeated his “personal wish that all men everywhere could be free.” On this date: In 1485, England’s King Richard III was killed in the Battle of Bosworth Field, effectively ending the War of the Roses. In 1787, inventor John Fitch demonstrated his steamboat on the Delaware River to delegates from the Constitutional Convention. In 1846, Gen. Stephen W. Kearny proclaimed all of New Mexico a territory of the United States. In 1851, the schooner America outraced more than a dozen British vessels off the English coast to win a trophy that came to be known as the America’s Cup. In 1862, French composer Claude Debussy was born in Saint-Germain-en-Laye. In 1922, Irish revolutionary Michael Collins was shot to death, apparently by Irish Republican Army members opposed to the Anglo-Irish Treaty that Collins had co-signed. In 1932, the British Broadcasting Corp. conducted its first experimental television broadcast, using a 30-line mechanical system. In 1962, French President Charles de Gaulle survived an attempt on his life in suburban Paris. In 1972, President Richard Nixon was nominated for a second term of office by the Republican National Convention in Miami Beach. In 1989, Black Panthers co-founder Huey P. Newton was shot to death in Oakland, Calif. In 1992, on the second day of the Ruby Ridge siege in Idaho, an FBI sharpshooter killed Vicki Weaver, the wife of white separatist Randy Weaver (the sharpshooter later said he was targeting the couple’s friend Kevin Harris, and didn’t see Vicki Weaver). One year ago: Hurricane Irene cut a destructive path through the Caribbean, raking Puerto Rico with strong winds and rain and then spinning just north of the Dominican Republic. Today’s Birthdays: Retired Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf is 78. Broadcast journalist Morton Dean is 77. Author Annie Proulx is 77. Baseball Hall-of-Famer Carl Yastrzemski is 73. Actress Valerie Harper is 73. Football coach Bill Parcells is 71. Actress Cindy Williams is 65. Pop musician David Marks is 64. International Swimming Hall of Famer Diana Nyad is 63. Country singer Collin Raye is 52. Actress Regina Taylor is 52. Rock singer Roland Orzabal is 51. Rock musician Debbi Peterson is 51. Rock musician Gary Lee Conner is 50. Singer Tori Amos is 49. Actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje is 45. Actor Ty Burrell is 45. Actor Rick Yune is 41. Rock musician Paul Doucette (Matchbox Twenty) is 40. Rap-reggae singer Beenie Man is 39.

Page 20 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, August 22, 2012


Dear Annie: Years ago, my brother, “Harry,” cheated on his wife. She forgave him, and they got back together. They seem very happy. A few years after his affair, the other woman had him served with paternity papers. Harry pays child support, but he has never met the child and says he doesn’t plan to. He doesn’t feel he can give that child the kind of relationship he has with his other children. He also doesn’t want his kids to find out that he cheated on their mother. Harry has asked that I keep this news private, but I feel he needs to play some part in this child’s life. I’ve tried talking to him, but he says it’s not my business. I also feel his children have the right to know, and that as the aunt to all of these children, I should tell them they have a sibling. Harry told me this is not my place, and if I continue to press the matter, he will not allow me to be alone with his children for fear that I will not respect his wishes. What should I do? -- Stuck in a Family Dilemma Dear Stuck: Please respect Harry’s choices, even though you disagree. Depending on the ages of these children, telling them could be complicated and confusing. Yes, we agree that they should know they have a sibling, but how and when to tell them is not your decision. Inform Harry that you will keep quiet, but that eventually, his kids will find out, and it would be best if it came directly from him, with Mom by his side, and not from, say, the Other Woman or her child. Urge him to consult a counselor who can help him find the best way to do this. Dear Annie: We have a daughter-in-law whom we love very much. Our problem is, when we are out in public, she wears blouses that are so low I am afraid her breasts will fall out. It is tremendously embarrassing for my husband and me. Should I ask her not to wear those blouses when we are out

with her? Or do I just look the other way? -- Nancy in Nantucket Dear Nancy: Criticizing your daughter-in-law’s clothing is never a good idea. If you can tolerate her decolletage, please do so. Otherwise, ask your son how he feels about this, and let him handle it. You also could buy her a lovely, demure new top for her birthday and hope that she will wear it the next time she sees you. Dear Annie: I’d like to respond to the letter from “Aspie in Pittsburgh,” the 17-year-old who has Asperger syndrome. As a mother of a 17-year-old son with an autism spectrum disorder, I have spent years researching and networking, hoping to learn whatever I can to help him achieve success in a world that is less than accepting of people with neurological differences. What I’ve learned is that ASDs are complex, and there is no “one size fits all’” approach to transitioning into young adulthood. I would like to suggest two resources that may help: College Autism Spectrum ( students.html) is an organization of professionals that provides support and training for students with autism spectrum disorders and their families. The other is Shut Up About Your Perfect Kid ( This website is an offshoot of a book written by two sisters about their daughters, one with Asperger syndrome and the other with bipolar disorder. They also have a Facebook page that provides an exchange of ideas and information, as well as support. I also would like to say to “Aspie” congratulations on your college acceptance, and best wishes for success in all of your future endeavors. -- ASD Mom in Massachusetts Dear Massachusetts: Thank you for your excellent resources. We hope they will be of assistance to all of our readers whose children need some extra help.

Brown and Atwell said the dissolve seemed most appropriate. “He has a mystique and that aura that kind of transcends death even,” Brown said. Stars wield extensive control over how their names, voices and images are used after they die through likeness, trademark and copyright protections, and now holograms offer them yet another consideration. provide dessert.
