City asks Executive Council to complete sale of State School property By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — City officials renewed their offer to purchase the former Laconia State School property on North Main Street yesterday when City Councilor Matt Lahey (Ward 2) wrote to Governor John Lynch and the five members of the Executive Council reaffirming a bid to buy the 228-acre tract for its appraised value of $2.16-million. Lahey declared that “the city is ready, willing, and able to acquire this property, to address the environmental issues and to return the property to productive use.” He asked the Governor and Executive Council to place the offer on its agenda and “act favorably.” In accord with legislation enacted in 2011 the state first offered the site to the city for $10-million. The city responded with its counter-offer of $2.16-million, which the legislation bound the state to refuse. see saLe page 10

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Hurricane Isaac made landfall in southeast Louisiana late Tuesday as Gulf Coast residents hunkered down behind boardedup windows with stockpiles of food and water, and wind-driven rain lashed bayous and beaches. New Orleans calmly waited out another storm on the eve of Hurricane Katrina’s seventh anniversary, hoping the city’s strengthened levees will hold. Isaac, a massive storm spanning nearly 200 miles from its center, zeroed in on New Orleans, turning streets famous for hosting celebrations at all hours into ghost boulevards. Evacuations were ordered in Mississippi’s coastal counties and the closure of its 12 shorefront casinos. But hours before the storm crossed land in Plaquemines Parish about 90 miles southeast of New Orleans, there was little fear or panic. With New Orleans’ airport closed, tourists retreated to hotels and most denizens of a coastline that has witnessed countless see ISAAC page 12

Republicans officially nominate Romney for president TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney swept to the Republican presidential nomination Tuesday night at a storm-delayed national convention, every mention of his name cheered by delegates eager to propel him into a campaign to oust President Barack Obama in tough economic times. Romney watched on television with his wife, Ann, at a hotel suite across the street from the hall as the convention sealed his hard-won victories in the primaries and caucuses of last winter.

“I read somewhere that Mitt and I have a “storybook marriage,” she said in excerpts released in advance of a primetime speech meant to cast her multimillionaire-businessman-turned-politician husband in a soft and likable light. “Well, in the storybooks I read, there were never long, long, rainy winter afternoons in a house with five boys screaming at once.” “A storybook marriage? No, not at all. What Mitt Romney and I have is a real marriage,” she said. Aides said her husband of 43 years would

be in the hall when she spoke. Through the evening, a parade of convention speakers mocked Democratic President Obama mercilessly from a made-for-television podium, as if to make up for lost time at an event postponed once and dogged still by Hurricane Isaac. The Democratic president has “never run a company. He hasn’t even run a garage sale or seen the inside of a lemonade stand,” declared Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican Party. see ROMNEY page 8

CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte is telling Republicans at their national convention in Tampa, Fla., that President Barack Obama’s economic plan amounts to a “success tax” on business. Ayotte told a primetime television audience Tuesday night that Obama believes

that as a family business grows, the federal government should take a larger share of its earnings. She said that is punishment for expanding and creating more jobs. Ayotte invoked New Hampshire’s state motto — Live Free or Die — and said she thought everyone at the convention shared

that view as have generations of Americans. Ayotte said Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is what small businesses need to lower and simplify taxes, eliminate job-killing red tape and roll back the health care changes under the Affordable Care Act.

Administration’s new mileage standards would double fuel efficiency WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration has finalized new fuel economy rules that will require the fleetwide average of new cars and trucks sold in the U.S. to double over the next 13 years. The average fuel economy must reach 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025, up from 28.6 mpg at the end of last year. The regulations will bring dramatic changes to the cars and trucks in U.S.

Pat Buchanan

Skies are darkening ahead of Grand Old Party Looking back all the way to America’s Civil War, there have been three dominant presidential coalitions. The first was Abraham Lincoln’s. With his war to restore the Union and his martyrdom, Lincoln inaugurated an era of Republican dominance that lasted more than seven decades and saw only two Democratic presidents: Grover Cleveland and Woodrow Wilson. The second coalition was FDR’s, where he and his vice president Harry Truman won five consecutive presidential elections. Only Gen. Eisenhower could break that streak. The third was Richard Nixon’s New Majority, cobbled together after his narrow 1968 victory, where he annexed the Northern Catholic ethnics and Southern Christian conservatives of FDR’s coalition to win 49 states in 1972. Ronald Reagan would follow up with 44and 49-state landslides and see his vice president win 40 states in 1988. That New Majority is now history. In the five elections since 1992, Republicans have won the popular vote once — in 2004. And while Mitt Romney is slightly ahead in polls today, reaching 270 electoral votes will be no easy task. The electoral map is becoming problematic. According to GOP Chairman Reince Priebus, the party has a 3-2-1 strategy. While holding all the states McCain won, the party must first recapture three red states that Barack Obama carried: Indiana, North Carolina and Virginia. Next, Romney must carry the two major battleground states that Obama won last time: Ohio and Florida. Third, add one more state Obama carried in 2008, like Colorado. Then the GOP is home. Yet with the exception of Indiana, none of those six states seems close to secure. And the GOP must win them all. And now Missouri, after Todd Akin’s “legitimate rape” gaffe, has moved from Republican red into the undecided column. The good news: With Paul Ryan on the ticket, Wisconsin is in play, and Mitt’s birth state, Michigan, is getting a second look. Yet consider the uphill struggle the GOP faces in a year when the election should be a cakewalk. Though he has four straight trillion-dollar deficits and 42 months of 8-percent unemployment to his credit, Obama appears to already have four of the seven mega-states — California, Illinois, Pennsylvania and New York — secure and is more than competitive in Ohio and Florida. Looking to the future, what is the Republican strategy ever again to win New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois or California, other than due to some national calamity or new depression? Where the Democratic base seems secure, the GOP base, the South from the Potomac to the

Pedernales, is seeing Democratic encroachments — in Florida, Virginia and North Carolina. Moreover, while the Nixon-Reagan coalition was united on the mega-issues of morality and patriotism, today’s GOP is fragmenting on everything except the imperative of removing Obama. One hears scarcely a peep of protest at Obama’s withdrawal from Iraq and Afghanistan. Yet U.S. influence is sinking in Baghdad as a new civil war is stirring, and the Taliban’s return after the U.S. departure from Afghanistan seems a certainty. Where have all the uber-hawks gone? The caws of Sen. John McCain and the neoconservatives for intervention in Syria and an ultimatum to Tehran to halt the enrichment of uranium or face a U.S. attack is echoed by some evangelicals. But foreign policy “realists,” libertarians and the anti-interventionist right, all of whom are urging us to stay out of any new war, seem more in tune with the times — and the country. The GOP used to be united on a traditionalist view of social and moral issues. Now, not only the Log Cabin Club, but libertarians and some moderate Republicans are receptive to the idea of homosexual marriage. And the ticket of RomneyRyan accepts abortion in the case of incest or rape. Once the principled position is yielded, where do we draw the line? At what point does constant accommodation cause True Believers to depart? Priebus said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that Republicans will cut federal spending from 25-percent of gross domestic product, roughly where it is today, to 20-percent. But a cut of 5-percent of GDP translates into a budget reduction of $750-billion. That is one-fifth of the entire U.S. budget. While the Republicans would seek to achieve such a reduction over a period of years, such budget butchery is unheard of in modern times. Where are the cuts to come from? Social Security and Medicare are the largest social programs. But the beneficiaries of those middle-class entitlements are seniors and retirees, the big divisions of the Republican army. And Mitt has assured these folks he is not going to cut Medicare. As for defense, Mitt says we need to spend more. And though the Rand Paul wing of the party is open to cuts in military spending, and some conservatives are ready to see bases closed abroad, this would cause a revolt among congressional hawks, neoconservatives, and executives and lobbyists of the militaryindustrial complex who show up at all those Washington fundraisers. Mitt Romney and the Republicans have a shot at taking it all this year. But beyond, one sees only darkening skies for the Grand Old Party.

LETTERS Every state constitution includes a reference to our creator To the editor, This discourse is in response to a letter to the editor by James Veverka whereby he dismisses the principle written into our founding document, the Declaration of Independence, stating that our rights to life and liberty are endowed by our Creator. Mr. Veverka insists that the source of our rights instead comes from humans, not God, directly opposing the clear and obvious statement in the Declaration. We are all entitled to our own personal beliefs in this regard, but the self-evident and unalienable truth is that The United States of America was FOUNDED as a nation under God. This is clearly stated in our founding document and is plainly visible for anyone with eyes and a brain to see and read. Our inquiry is not about the personal beliefs of each of us. Instead, the search directs us to identify our founding document and determine if that document is void of godly principles or incorporates them. Next, does this document link our rights to our Creator God to or to humans. Finally, is the document valid today and is it subject to amendment? The answers to these questions are that our FOUNDING document is the Declaration of Independence, the document clearly includes four organic godly principles, it identifies our Creator God as the source of our rights, it singles out our two most important rights, life and liberty, and this non-amendable document is valid today. Mr. Veverka claims that the Declaration is merely an inspirational document with NO legal validity as to its founding statement or to its principles. This is a demonstrably FALSE assumption. The founding covenant for The United States of America is found ONLY in the Declaration. There is NO founding article or statement contained in the Constitution. The Preamble and final sentence of the Constitution itself clearly dates the United States of America’s existence from 1776. The peace treaty officially ending the Revolutionary War with Great Britain recognizing the United States as an INDEPENDENT and SOVEREIGN NATION was signed in 1783. This predates the ratification of the

Constitution by five years. To maintain that the Declaration is not a legal document is to say that the most powerful nation of the time, Great Britain, signed a formal peace treaty with a phantom non-existing nation operating without a legal founding charter. If the United States of America was not founded LEGALLY by the Declaration, as Mr. Veverka claims, we have been celebrating The Fourth of July as our nation’s birthday on the wrong date for 236 years! Cast in stone on a wall in the Jefferson Memorial are these words: “God who gave us life gave us liberty.” This is in accord with the organic statement espousing the same principle enshrined in our nation’s founding document. Jefferson’s statement directly opposes Mr. Veverka’s convictions, but James will not be honored by a monument in Washington, DC, with his statement, “You get your rights from humans” immortalized and cast in stone. I prefer Jefferson’s assessment to Mr. Veverka’s. Mr. Veverka made the statement that our nation “was not founded under any God.” This precept espoused by Mr. Veverka is diametrically opposed to Lincoln’s “...Nation under God...” statement from his Gettysburg Address cast in stone in the Lincoln Memorial. And Mr. Veverka will not be honored with a monument in our nation’s capital with his contrary and opposing words immortalized and cast in stone. I prefer Lincoln’s assessment to Mr. Veverka’s. The first Federal Congress (The same Congress that created the First Amendment) gave the following mandate to the states concerning the drafting of their state constitutions: “The constitution, when formed, shall be republican, and not repugnant to the Constitution of the United States and the principles of the Declaration of Independence.” Vague? Not on your life! All 50 States were faithful in INCLUDING references to God in their constitutions. These documents date from 1776 through 1959 and their godly references have NOT been amended over time. FIFTY examples could be presented but space limitations here permit only one of the first and one see next page

Our Wicwas Lake Grange is back on its feet and again thriving

To the editor, Our quaint town of Gilford, New Hampshire lies a mere 45 minutes from the renowned White Mountain National Forest. Although this is the case, this natural treasure is often taken for granted by local residents, myself included. With busy families, stressful jobs and a tough economy, it can be hard to remember to appreciate the stunning environment around us. When was the last time you went for a hike? When I personally responded to this question, my answer was “far too long ago”. Thus, I have recently begun hiking and exploring this land again, and have rediscovered the deep solitude that can be found in this activity. Starting with smaller local mountains such as Piper, Gunstock, and Belknap, I found breathtaking views overlooking Lake Winnipesaukee. I would recommend Piper most highly because of the well-maintained trail, and the open rock summit. Belknap was also an enjoyable hike... until I reached the top. The newly constructed cell-tower and other commercial structures greatly detracted from the mountain’s beauty. After many suggestions from friends, I then planned a trip up Mt.

To the editor, “Established in 1867, the National Grange, a non partisan, non profit fraternal organization is the oldest agricultural and rural community service organization. With more than 2,100 local chapters, the Grange has evolved into the leading rural advocacy organization and a major benefactor to local communities. There are more than 160,000 members across the United States.” This quote was taken from the web site. It is from an article regarding the National Grange joining with 40 other agricultural organizations in a rally over the 2012 Farm Bill. I used this quote to give those who might think the Grange is not a proper place for political discussion, as a recent Democratic candidate espoused, a heads up as to what the Grange means to our local community. Wicwas Lake Grange was a dying organization two years ago and then a strange thing happened. A small group of people from Meredith Center, Laconia and the surrounding area got together to revitalize this “rural community service organization.” With the help of some out of town Grange leaders and a few local businesses we were able to bring back what was a less than thriving community asset to a revitalized, vibrant, and active organization. This past Saturday night we held our third County Crossroads event and fund raiser, which included a barbecue cook out, social event, and four band extravaganza music festival.

Lafayette, a part of the Appalachian Trail that helps form the immense walls of the Franconia Notch. I took the Old Bridle Path (the most popular trail), which travels through forest until reaching a ledge/ridge on-route to the Green Leaf Hut. When looking out over the ledge, it is a terrific view across to Lincoln Mountain and of the valley that lies below. Once past the hut comes the final climb to Mt. Lafayette’s summit. This section is rocky and open because it is above tree-line. When I finally reached the top, a comprehensive survey of the White Mountain National Forest, and far beyond, was revealed. All the stresses of day to day life were relieved, and I felt liberated standing thousands of feet above the rest of society and the constant demands of day to day living. Since this hike, I have also done the following 4,000+ footers: Tecumseh, Eisenhower, and Washington. I encourage you to take advantage of the grandiose New England landscape we live in and remember why we live in New Hampshire. Take the time to go for a hike and it will be well worth the trip, I promise. See you on the trails! Hannah Slattery Gilford

Youssef is the only true conservative running for State Senate 7 To the editor, I read with great interest the letter by Bill Grimm in Saturday’s Laconia Daily Sun. I was at the Belknap County GOP meeting at the Top of The Town. I heard Mr. Grimm speak and heard him say he took the pledge for no new taxes. As far as I know Mr. Grimm in fact did not take the tax pledge, he took his own “Spending Hawk Pledge”. However he said it would only be for his first term. I’m sure he will find some reason during his first term to fall back on his own pledge. From what he said at the meeting I believe he is a moderate and not a true conservative. Ask him his opinion on the “tax cap” and see if you get an answer. He seems to be all over the place on

the issues. It is hard to pin him down on anything. Maybe that is the reason for his personal attacks on Josh. Josh Youssef is the only true conservative running for State Senate in Belknap County. I have spoken at length with Josh and believe him to be not only a fiscal and social conservative, but also man of faith, In other words he is the “Real Deal”. I am proud to support Josh Youssef. Mr. Grimm should agree to a debate in Laconia, the other city in District 7. I’m sure you would see the great difference between the two candidates. I hope you will join me in supporting Josh Youssef for District 7 State Senate. Rep. Harry Accornero Laconia

‘Fair & balanced?” I think you have me confused with Fox News To the editor, At the beginning of Tuesday’s radio program I announced that Bill Kennedy of Danbury, who is competing in the Democrat Primary for Governor would be joining me (by phone) this morning. Sure enough, before the program ended a caller began telling me that I am not fair and balanced. He was critical of me for not being fair

to some Republicans who at one time were frequent guests. It has been said that, “It is not easy being my friend.” As for “Fair & Balanced”, you have me confused with Fox News. Things are happening fast. No time to baby those who do not share my principles or my mission. There are listeners counting on me! see next page

We get together because it is our community and we strive to make things better for our friends, our neighbors, and our families. Our goal this year was to be the largest Grange in the state.

LETTERS Obama’s doing everything backwards in his efforts to create jobs To the editor, I read the letters written here in The Sun by the hard left supporters of Obama and wonder what reality they live in. Four years ago the man was selling hope and change, promised unemployment would be down to around 5.6-percent. Reality check for the left, it is still above 8-percent and the Congressional Business Office (CBO) is predicting it will rise again to over 9-percent in the last quarter. This is just one of the multitude of promises he has been unable to keep and no wonder, the man has never as much as run a lemonade stand. With that lack of knowledge or/or experience I would think he would have brought some people into his government with some knowledge of things he lacks. But no, only 8-percent of his administration has any business experience. They are all left wing socialist theorists and can’t understand why his programs haven’t worked. A look at history should give them a clue, no socialist nation has ever succeeded that I know of. Soviet Russia failed, China abandoned their Marxist socialist economic model, Europe is plagued with crisis after crisis. So what does the president propose? Stay the course he says, give it time. In other words more of the same policies that don’t work. from preceding page Two of my guests scheduled for this Saturday are Mallory Factor, author of “Shadowbosses” (10:10), and Mark Mix, President of National Right to Work (11:10). Niel Young Laconia

One of the latest ads from the Obama camp says we need a strong middle class in this country. Very true but apparently he and his people think that will come from giving out more unemployment and welfare checks. It’s jobs that will create a strong middle class, not empty rhetoric. The president is doing everything backwards if his desire is to create jobs. More taxes, regulations and red tape will not stimulate business and job creation. It will drive more and more companies to outsource and even move off shore. Continuing his policy’s will guarantee more long-term unemployment, more and more families suffering, struggling and becoming dependent on ever shrinking government resources. Time has come to get this nation back to a responsible government run by those who actually know how to run it. For the last three decades or so we have been experimenting with socialism and little by little it has been dragging our nation down. We have seen Mr. Obama run up five trillion additional debt in less then four years. The debt now is $15.98-trillion and growing by billions every day. Obama promised to cut the deficit in half but now only wants to increase it by trillions more. Can anyone of sound mind think this is a good idea? Four more years of this and we will have no jobs, no welfare, no unemployment and no nation. Please readers, for the sake of your children, grandchildren, and future generations, vote Obama out of power. Steve Earle Hill

‘Blue Loon’ bus adds midday run from West Ossipee to Laconia & back By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

SANDWICH — Last year, Carroll County Transit began running a morning and evening route from West Ossipee to downtown Laconia, offering anyone along the route a chance to avoid the expense and hassle of driving themselves. The route has proven popular, especially among those commuting for work. To use the service to attend an appointment, though, saw the rider stranded at his or her destination until the bus made its evening run. That changed earlier this month, thanks to the acquisition of funding which affords the program a mid-day run. Yesterday morning, a crowd gathered at the North Sandwich Store to celebrate the development. Those in attendance included officials from Tri-County CAP, NH DOT, bus drivers and nearby residents looking forward to riding the bus, nicknamed the “Blue Loon” for its bright livery. “It was a five-year project to get Carrol County Transit up and running,” said Jeanne Ryer, one of the volunteers who helped compile funding sources for Carroll County Transit, a program of Tri-County CAP. She and her cohorts persevered despite the predictions of naysayers who said such a program would never work. Yet, Ryer said, speaking to the crowd, there are many people who needed her and her cohorts to make it work. Funding for the program came from a potpourri of sources. DOT funding helped get Carroll County Transit off the ground and federal ARRA funds purchased the buses. Local municipalities chipped in, as did the Endowment for Health and the NH Charitable Foundation. Contributions form the Doris Benz and Quimby foundations were critical in making the mid-day run a possibility. Their efforts, though successful for now, could be fleeting, Ryer said. “If you don’t ride it, it won’t be here next year.” In theory, that shouldn’t be a problem Carroll County has an old population and is projected to get older, Ryer added. Many of those older residents live on fixed incomes and fluctuating gas prices can make the trip to a doctor’s appointment the supermarket uncomfortably expensive. “We all know people who could be using this service,” said Ryer. The “Blue Loon” isn’t exclusive to senior citizens, though. Anyone along the route can ride for $2 each way or $5 all day. Weekly and monthly rates are also available. The route from West Ossipee to Laconia starts at the McDonald’s restaurant at the intersection of Routes 16 and 25. Stops include the Sandwich Library, Moultonborough Town Hall, Heath’s Plaza

Carroll County Transit’s “Blue Loon” bus now makes three daily runs from West Ossipee to Laconia. On Tuesday morning, a crowd gathered at the North Sandwich Store to celebrate the development.

in Center Harbor, Hannaford Supermarket in Meredith, the Interlakes Medical Center and Lakes Region General Hospital. The bus will also stop at the North Sandwich Store, or any other safe spot along the way, for riders who either call ahead (1-866-752-6890) or are successful in catching the driver’s attention as the bus drives by. The bus will also stop to let riders off at non-designated stops, so long as the driver deems the situation safe. The bus runs Monday through Friday and leaves the West Ossipee McDonald’s at 6:30 a.m., 9:30 a.m.

and 3:30 p.m. The “Blue Loon” departs LRGH at 7:55 a.m., 10:55 a.m. and 4:55 p.m. From the West Ossipee stop, Carroll County Transit also operates routes that run to Wolfeboro and to North Conway. For more information, call at the above number or visit Beverly Raymond, transportation director for Tri-County CAP, said many riders start for practical reasons but continue riding for socialization and ease of transport. “Please, get on board and try it,” she said.

Belmont native was man killed in Loudon accident

LOUDON — Police Chief Robert Fiske said Monday the man who died in a car accident on Chichester Road August 19 was Christopher Putnam, 35, a Belmont native living most recently at 55 Durkee St. in Laconia. Fiske said it appeared Putnam was driving about 55 mph in a 35 mph zone heading west or toward Loudon. He said Chichester Road curves slightly to the left by the church and Putnam apparently missed the turn and collided with a tree. Fiske said it was not possible to tell if Putnam was wearing a seat belt. He said Putnam was alone in the 2000 Chevrolet Malibu. Fiske said it is too early to determine why Putnam crashed the car although he said speed appeared to be a factor. Fiske said there were no skid or yaw marks and that section of Chichester Road is not known to be particularly dangerous. Putnam was airlifted to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon but died from his injuries. Fiske said police took blood samples and forwarded them to the state lab for testing but said he hasn’t gotten any results.

All of the people who gather downtown daily and visit with each other say they would like to see the city buy the Colonial Theater and were disappointed when the deal fell through. Natasha lives in one of the apartments upstairs. She thinks the police and the city should be doing more to help people who are down on their luck. Once homeless herself, she said she was lucky enough to find a place to live but said it was very hard for her to raise the money to move. “Lots of people don’t have a job or rental history,” she said. Natasha also said she would also like to see a laundromat closer to downtown. When asked how she does her laundry, she said she either walks to Lakeport or the one near the high school or pays $14 round trip for a taxi to take her. If she’s lucky, someone she knows with a car will give her a ride. “I would love to see the city buy this place and put in a theater. Even an arcade,” she said. “Something for the kids to do so they don’t get involved with drugs.” She also said she likes to smoke outside because she just went through and cleaned her apartment from top to bottom and doesn’t want to get it smoky again. According to one young woman named Katelyn, who lives with her father on Messer Street, the people who live downtown get treated differently by everyone. “If you’re not exactly the way they want you to be or if you don’t look exactly the way they want you to look, then they treat you badly,” she said. “Heck, the way you look is the way you look,” she continued. “It shouldn’t make a difference.”

MILEAGE from page 2 trucks will be halved by 2025, the government said. President Barack Obama said the new fuel standards “represent the single most important step” his administration has taken to reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil. But Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has opposed the standards, and his campaign on Tuesday called them extreme and said they would drive up the price of new cars. Any savings at the pump would be wiped out by rising costs of cars, the campaign said. The gas mileage requirements will be phased in gradually and get tougher starting in 2017. They build on a 2009 deal between the Obama administration and automakers that committed cars and trucks to average 35.5 mpg by model year 2016. In the arcane world of government regulations, the rules don’t mean that cars and trucks will average 54.5 mpg in 13 years. It’s actually closer to 40 mpg in real-world driving. Under the complex regulations, dubbed “Corporate Average Fuel Economy, or CAFE,” automakers can have lower mileage by using credits for selling natural gas and electric vehicles, changing air conditioning fluid to one that pollutes less, and even for placing louvers on car grilles to improve aerodynamics. They won’t have to improve pickup truck mileage much for the first few years, but big improvements will come later, after 2020. Still, automakers have been adding technology to boost gas mileage, mainly because people want to spend less on gasoline, which averaged about $3.75 per gallon this week. The research firm J.D. Power and Associates says that fuel economy is the top factor people consider when buying a car in the U.S. By 2025, some bigger models may disappear, and dealers could offer more efficient gas-electric hybrids, natural gas vehicles and electric cars. There also will be smaller motors, lighter bodies and more devices to save fuel, such as circuits that temporarily shut off engines at traffic lights. The changes will raise new car prices, but the government says that will be more than offset by the savings at the pump.

nor the president holds a secure advantage. While there was no doubt about Romney’s command over the convention, the residue of a heated campaign for the nomination was evident inside the hall. Texas Rep. Ron Paul, who never won a primary or caucus, drew several dozen delegate votes — precisely how many were not announced from the podium. Earlier, his supporters chanted and booed after the convention adopted rules they opposed, but were powerless to block, to prevent those votes from

being officially registered. “Shame on you,” some of his supporters chanted from the floor. Boehner, presiding over the roll call, made no attempt to have Romney’s nomination made by acclamation, even though Ryan’s was a few moments later. The night was Romney’s for sure, but some of the loudest cheers were accorded Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a hero among Republicans for fending off a labor-backed recall attempt last spring. see next page

Step in front of Colonial Theater has become a front porch for regular group of downtown residents By Gail OBer


LACONIA — For the past three months, Charlie has lived at 613 Main Street in one of the apartments in the building that fronts the former Colonial Theater. On warm summer days, he’s one of a number of building residents who have taken to bringing a chair, a can of soda, and a pack of cigarettes down to street level to relax under the old theater marquis. “You can say I’m part of the neighborhood watch,” he said yesterday, with a grin. “No really,” he went on. “When the city had the power outage in the storm we all sat here and made sure nobody broke into any of the stores.” Charlie and his friends, most of who also live in one of the upstairs apartments or in nearby apartments in downtown, say the primary reason they sit outside is because it’s hot in their apartments. A Laconia native, Charlie said he’s like to see Laconia the way it was when he was a child — “filled with stores and people.” He and his friends also said they are sick of the police harassing them. “They tell us we can’t ride our bicycles in the area,” said a man named Derek who was with his friend Jeff. “But they allow everyone else to ride their bikes.” According to Laconia City Code, anytime more than three people are gathered in a public space it can be considered loitering. For the most part, Charlie and his friends downtown said they think police tend to target them. “If anybody anywhere makes any noise at all, the police come here first,” he said. ROMNEY from page 2 Said House Speaker John Boehner, “His record is as shallow as his rhetoric.” To send Romney and ticketmate Paul Ryan into the fall campaign, delegates approved a conservative platform that calls for tax cuts — not government spending — to stimulate the economy at a time of sluggish growth and 8.3 percent unemployment. Polls make the race a close one, to be settled in a string of battleground states where neither Romney

Correction: Raymond Guay was never charged with a sex crime in connection with 1973 murder

An article that was published on Tuesday, August 28 about the New Hampton couple that hopes to raise more than $300,000 in the next week to prevent foreclosure on their home erred in referring to an unrelated former Nashua man who had been living in the same home for a period as the murderer of a child who he had molested. Raymond Guay pleaded guilty to the 1973 gunshot murder of 12-year-old John Lindovsky of Nashua and was sentenced to 25 years in prison, the maximum allowable for second degree murder at the time. Though it is obvious from reading old new reports about the crime that there were sexual overtones to the case — the body of the boy was discovered in a wooded area of Hollis clad only in under shorts and socks — Mr. Guay was never charged with a sex crime and upon his release from prison in 2008 was not required to register as a sex offender. Mr. Guay was 25 years old at the time of his crime and served a total of 36 years in prison. His sentence was extended twice, the first time for a 1982 escape from the New Hampshire

State Prison in Concord that included the invasion of the home of an elderly couple and the second time, in 1991, for stabbing a fellow inmate in a federal prison in California with a fork. Mr. Guay’s release from federal prison in 2008 was conditional on the satisfactory completion of a twoyear-long supervised period of living beyond prison walls. During the early days of that period, his release caused considerable protest in several New Hampshire communities, including in New Hampton, where Bob and Judy Ulrich took him into their home as an expression of their Christian faith. As the story that was published on Tuesday stated, a part of the reason the Ulrichs struggled to make their mortgage payments was because of the hit their breadmaking business took when word got out that Guay was living with them. Mr. Guay’s probationary period ended late last year and he has since left the area. There have been no reports that his behavior while living in New Hampton was in any way questionable. — The editor

from preceding page Convention planners squeezed two days of speeches and other convention business into one after scrapping Monday’s scheduled opener because of fears that Isaac would make a direct hit on the Florida Gulf Coast. That threat fizzled, but it was instantly replaced by another — that Republicans would wind up holding a political celebration at the same time the storm turned its fury on New Orleans, devastated almost exactly seven years ago by Hurricane Katrina. Romney’s convention planners said they were in frequent contact with weather forecasters, but they declined to discuss what contingency plans, if any, they had to accelerate plans for him to deliver a formal acceptance speech Thursday night. Ratification of a party platform was prelude to Romney’s nomination, a document more conservative on abortion than the candidate. On economic matters, it backs extension of the tax cuts enacted in 2001 and 2003 and due to expire at year’s end, without exception. It also calls for an additional 20 percent reduction in income tax brackets that Romney favors. In a time of 8.3 percent unemployment and the slowest economic recovery in the post-World War II era, that went to the crux of the campaign for the White House. By contrast, Obama wants to allow existing tax cuts to expire on upper income taxpayers, and has criticized Romney’s overall economic plans as a boon to millionaires that would raise taxes on the middle class. The GOP platform also pledges that a Republican-controlled Congress will repeal, and Romney will sign, legislation to repeal the health care legislation Obama won from a Democratic-controlled Congress. So, too, for the measure passed to regulate Wall Street in the wake of the 2008 economic collapse.

On abortion, the platform says, “The unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed.” Romney opposes abortions, except in cases of rape, incest, or when “the health and life of the mother” are at stake, he said in a convention week interview. Obama, who accepts renomination at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., next week, campaigned in Iowa Tuesday as he set out on a tour of college campuses in battleground states in hopes of boosting voter registration among college students. Before departing the White House, he made a point of appearing before reporters to announce the government’s latest steps to help those in the way of Isaac. He signed a declaration of emergency for Mississippi and ordered federal aid to supplement state and local storm response efforts in the state. His surrogates did their best to counter Romney and the Republicans. Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, dismissing GOP attempts to woo Hispanic voters, said, “You can’t just trot out a brown face or a Spanish surname and expect people are going to vote for your party or your candidate.” He added, “This is a party with a platform that calls for the self-deportation of 11 million people.” Hispanics strongly favor Obama, according to public polls, and Romney and his party have been seeking to win a bigger share of their votes by emphasizing proposals to fix the economy rather than ease their positions on immigration. Female voters, too, prefer the president over his challenger, and Democrats have done their best to emphasize GOP opposition to abortion and even suggest the party might try and curtail access to contraceptives if it wins power.

SALE from page one Next the state offered the property to Belknap County. Earlier this month the Belknap County Commission declined, expressing its support for the city’s effort to acquire the property. “Now,” Lahey reminded the executive councilors, “according to the Legislation, the property is to be offered to the general public, which includes the city.” Furthermore, he explained that in prescribing the process for selling the site, the Legislature circumvented the statutory procedure for disposing of state property and placed the sole authority for accepting a bid and approving a transaction with the Executive Council. However, the legislation also stipulates that if neither the city nor the county accept the state’s offer, the Department of Administrative Services “shall issue a request for proposals (RFP) for the sale of the property.” Mike Connor, director of the Plant and Property Division, said yesterday he expected to issue the RFP in the next few weeks, adding that the department intended to hire a consultant or broker to market the property nationwide. “The legislation is very specific in directing us to issue an RFP,” he said. In effect, the city is now asking the governor and Executive Council to foreshorten the process by accepting the city’s counter-offer. Lahey, who chaired the commission convened by the Legislature in 2009 to evaluate the future of the property, suggested that the executive councilors weigh several factors in considering the city’s offer. First, he said that a survey of state departments and agencies found that none had any plans or use for the site. Second, Lahey noted that an environmental

assessment of the property reported the presence of various contaminants and explained that neither the state, as the party responsible for the pollution, nor a private purchaser qualified for federal funds to address the hazards. On the other hand, he said that the city, as a public entity with no responsibility for the contamination, would be eligible for funding from the United States Environmental Protection Agency, with which it has established “an excellent working relationship.” Next Lahey wrote that the state “continues to incur costs as the property deteriorates.” The Legislature has appropriated $300,000 for roof repairs to a number of buildings as well as $333,235 in fiscal year 2012 and $323,925 in fiscal year 2013 to maintain the site. The Department of Administrative Services has requested another $300,000 for roof repairs, along with $325,000 to upgrade the water system and $245,000 to install new electrical service in fiscal years 2014 and 2015. Finally, Lahey said that the city has plans for much of the property, which includes the Robbie Mills Sports Complex. He anticipated that a third of the site would be designated for recreation and another third for conservation while the remainder, where the buildings are located, posed “more of a challenge.” After overcoming the environmental issues, he said that the property would be “returned to productive use.” Some lawmakers, chiefly House Majority Leader Gene Chandler (R-Bartlett) and Senator Jim Rausch (R-Derry), have indicated that they would oppose selling the property at the offering price and support legislation to forestall a transaction when the Legislature convenes in January.

HOUSE 9 from page one gration laws. Aligning himself with the “birthers,” Accornero was foremost among a handful of Republican lawmakers to berate the state Ballot Law Commission for failing to disquality President Obama from the N.H. Primary ballot. The scene, captured on video, prompted “Atlantic” magazine, in an article entitled “Cracked Granite,” to comment “if you look hard enough, there has to be a Harry Accornero in every state, right?”

Dewhirst, a local funeral director who served in the House from 1994 to 2004, insisted that the controversy dogging Accornero played no part in his decision to enter the race. “I was in for 10 years and out for 10 years,” he said. “It was time to get back in.” Referring to Ronald Reagan’s 11th commandment not to speak ill of a fellow Republican, he said that he had “no axe to grind.” explaining his decision to file at the last moment, he said “I wanted to see how things were shaking out.” However, Dewhirst allowed that “I believe in working with the other side.” Describing himself as a “fiscal conservative,” he said that “on the other issues I’m kind of gray. Black and white doesn’t do anybody any good.” see next page

Elderly driver who killed 2 motorcyclists dies of injuries

CONCORD (AP) — An 87-year-old driver who crossed the center lane of traffic Saturday and killed two motorcyclists participating in a memorial ride has died of injuries he sustained in the crash, state police said Tuesday. Robert Lockerby, of Walpole, died Tuesday at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, where his 87-year-old wife was being treated for what police described as nonlife-threatening injuries. State Police Lt. Nicole Armaganian said Lockerby recalled nothing about the accident or why he turned when he did. “I don’t think we’re ever going to know the ‘why,’” Armaganian said. Police have said they don’t believe alcohol or speed were factors. Lockerby was headed north on Route 12 and the procession of more than 200 motorcycles was heading south when Lockerby crossed the center lane and plowed in the bikers. Two riders — 41-year-old Aaron Robar of Newport

and 59-year-old Gary Champney of Alstead — were pronounced dead at the scene. Riders injured in the crash included George Lathrup, 55, of Claremont; Peter Franklin, 45, of Newport; Mark Mason, 56, of Newbury; Austin Aubin, 62, of Charlestown; and Ronald Butcher, 51, of Springfield. The bikers were participating in the 6th Annual Ride for the Fallen in honor of Army Spc. Justin Rollins, a Newport native who was killed in Iraq by a roadside bomb in March 2007. Rhonda Rollins — Justin’s mother — was in an escort car and witnessed the accident as it unfolded in front of her. The crash occurred about an hour after the motorcyclists left Newport High School. Police closed Route 12 for seven hours after the crash while they investigated and cleared debris from the road. Funerals services are planned Thursday for Champney and Saturday for Robar.

from preceding page “They either love me or hate me,” Accornero remarked, “but I’m not looking for name recognition except here in Laconia and Belmont. I believe you state your views and let the voters know here you stand.” He said that he has pledged not to vote for a personal income or general sales tax and to protect the rights of gun owners and believes government has grown “too big” and must be held accountable. At the same time, Accornero stressed, “I’m willing to listen to what people have to say. I represent all the people,” he continued, adding that “I try to answer 95-percent of my e-mails and 100-percent of my phone calls in 24 hours.” He was the only one of the city’s five representatives who met with officials of the school district to discuss a bill that put federal funds at risk and, on their advice, voted against it. Looking forward, Accornero listed his priorities as requiring an independent audit of every state agency, restoring the Department of Motor Vehicle office to Belmont and helping the city acquire the former State School property. An audit, he claimed, would reveal inefficiencies, waste and overstaffing in departments and agencies, especially in the upper echelons of the bureaucracy. He suggested that personnel of the Marine Patrol could be cross-trained to operate the DMV office three-days a week, sparing an aging population the trip to Concord. Accornero

called the state school property “a jewel for the city and for Belknap County.” Noting that House Majority Leader Gene Chandler (R-Bartlett) seeks to block a sale to the city, he said “I’ll do battle with anyone to get that property for the city.” By contrast, Dewhirst said he had no agenda. “I don’t believe in making promises that never get kept anyway,” he remarked. He expected that “if I’m elected people will come knocking at my door to tell me what they want.” He did agree with Accornero that the Lakes Region would benefit from the return of the DMV office to Belmont. Likewise, he said that the city should acquire the state school property, but emphasized that as much as of the site as possible should be sold to private interests and returned to the tax rolls. Accornero, who frequently appears alongside conservative broadcaster Niel Young on “The Advocates,” said that he was actively campaigning, particularly in Belmont, where he has not run before. “I’m putting up signs and getting out to meet people,” he said. Dewhirst said he would rely “on word of mouth,” adding “if you spend more than $100 for a job that $100 a year, that’s ridiculous.” Although Dewhirst appears to be taking his campaign lightly, the approach served him well in a past GOP primary.

ISAAC from page 2 hurricanes decided to ride out the storm. “Isaac is the son of Abraham,” said Margaret Thomas, who was trapped for a week in her home in New Orleans’ Broadmoor neighborhood by Katrina’s floodwaters, yet chose to stay put this time. “It’s a special name that means ‘God will protect us’.” Still, Isaac, which strengthened late Tuesday to 80 mph winds, drew intense scrutiny because of its timing — just before the anniversary of Katrina and coinciding with the first major speeches of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., already delayed and tempered by the storm. “We don’t expect a Katrina-like event, but remember there are things about a Category 1 storm that can kill you,” New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu said, urging people to use common sense and to stay off any streets that may flood. from preceding page 2004, two years later he filed at the eleventh hour, completing a field of six vying for five slots on the general election ballot. He finished fifth with 567 votes, 110 more than Judy Krahulec, to claim the last place on the GOP ticket, but lost in the general election when Democrats won four of the five seats.

Other officials, chastened by memories and experience, advised caution. Tens of thousands of people were told to leave low-lying areas, including 700 patients of Louisiana nursing homes. At least one tornado spun off of Isaac in Alabama, but there were no immediate reports of damage or injuries. Many residents along the Gulf Coast opted to ride it out in shelters or at home and officials, while sounding alarm about the dangers of the powerful storm, decided not to call for the mass evacuations like those that preceded Katrina, which packed 135 mph winds in 2005. Isaac promises to test a New Orleans levee system bolstered after the catastrophic failures during Hurricane Katrina. But in a city that has already weathered Hurricane Gustav in 2008, calm prevailed as residents sized up the threat. “I feel safe,” said Pamela Young, who settled in to her home in the Lower 9th Ward — a neighborhood devastated by Katrina — with dog Princess and her television, waiting for the storm. “Everybody’s talking ‘going, going,’ but the thing is, when you go, there’s no telling what will happen. The storm isn’t going to just hit here.” Young, who lives in a new, two-story home built to replace the one destroyed by Katrina, said she wasn’t worried about the levees.

New law will encourage expanding drug courts in N.H. CONCORD (AP) — Supporters said Monday that a new law will make it easier for New Hampshire to start drug courts that reduce jail costs while helping people turn their lives around. Superior Court Chief Justice Tina Nadeau said studies show drug courts work at reducing crime rates. Morgan Hurley, 28, of Littleton said she’s proof the Grafton County drug court works. She said the program changed her perspective on life within 18 months. “It teaches you life skills. It gets to the root of why you used drugs in the first place,” she said. Hurley said she now does volunteer work that helps the elderly. “I’m a good person. I help others,” she said. The new law is not mandatory, but Nadeau said it will help promote implementing them statewide. Drug courts are now in Rockingham, Strafford, Grafton and Cheshire counties. Nadeau and Hurley spoke at a ceremonial signing for the law and two related laws. The three laws take effect Jan. 1. The second law expands the prohibition against driving under the influence of a controlled drug to

include prescription and over-the-counter drugs. State Sen. Ray White, a bill sponsor, said it should not matter what makes the drivers impaired to pose a risk on the highways to themselves and others. Attorney General Michael Delaney said the law will close a gap in current law that now only holds drivers accountable for driving under the influence of controlled drugs and alcohol. The third law speeds up the arraignment for people charged with impaired driving to within 14 days of being stopped, if practicable. State Rep. John Tholl, a bill sponsor, said arraignments may be at any time now. He said the law’s objective is to get people into education and treatment programs quickly so the programs have a better chance of working. He said another key to the law is screening the drivers to determine which are social drinkers and which are addicts. State Rep. Susan Almy, the bill’s prime sponsor, said anyone who meets the criteria of being addicted must go through more intensive screening. She said social drinkers are sent to education programs while the addicts are required to undergo treatment. Both lose their license, she said.

CHICAGO (AP) — Citing Chicago’s reputation of mobsters and corruption, Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn vetoed a plan Tuesday to bring casinos to the city and four other areas, leaving irked lawmakers with the task of overruling him. Quinn squashed a proposal that supporters — including Chicago’s mayor — said could create tens of thousands of jobs and millions of dollars for the cash-strapped state, saying the plan lacked regulatory oversight and ethical standards. He took specific aim at the proposed Chicago casino, saying it would have been allowed to operate under different rules, making it vulnerable to “unsavory influence.” “We’re not going to have loopholes for mobsters in Illinois,” said Quinn, himself a Chicago Democrat whose two predecessors are in prison for corruption. “The bill that was on my desk was woefully deficient when it came to protecting integrity and honesty and regulation of gambling in our state.” Supporters immediately vowed to fight back, claiming they had enough support to move forward with the plan. The bill, which also calls for allowing slot machines in horse racing tracks, was approved by the Legislature earlier this year with majorities only a few votes shy of what would be needed to override a veto. Lawmakers are scheduled to reconvene for a veto session this fall. Quinn isn’t opposed to gambling and has said all along that he wanted a bill with stronger ethical protections. He said Tuesday that the legisla-

tion needed to ban political contributions from the gaming industry, among other things, and urged legislators to work with him on the proposal’s shortcomings. But the bill’s House sponsor, Rep. Lou Lang, said his attempts to do so have been rebuffed. The Democrat from Skokie predicted there would be enough support in the House, which approved the original plan just two votes shy of what would be needed to override a veto. “The bottom line is he doesn’t want to sign a gaming bill,” Lang said. “If he had language to propose, he would have proposed it.” Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel also expressed frustration, noting the nearby casinos in neighboring Indiana, and Rep. Chad Hays, a Republican who represents parts of east-central Illinois where one of the casinos was proposed, said it was a missed opportunity for economically depressed communities. “We are going to go forward with or without the governor,” Hays said. It’s the second time that lawmakers have approved gambling expansion, but it’s the first time they’ll get another shot to pass it. They didn’t send a similar plan to the governor last year because he’d threatened a veto. The veto comes as Illinois is buried in financial troubles. The state has billions in unpaid bills, and its unfunded pension liability is roughly $85 billion and growing.

LACONIA — Dorothy M. Lessard, a lifelong resident of Laconia, died while surrounded by family on Tuesday, August 28, 2012, aged 75, in her home on Strafford Street, only a few hundred yards from where she was born to Everett C. and Lillian (Jordan) Lord on March 15, 1937. Dottie was an outgoing woman who had hundreds of friends in the area, graduated as class secretary of Laconia High School in 1955, and in her children’s estimation, seemed to know everyone in town.

LRCT announces Patten Brook land conservation in Alexandria CENTER HARBOR — he Lakes Region Conservation Trust (LRCT) has announced the permanent conservation of 154 acres of land along, and in the watershed of Patten Brook in Alexandria. This land has been protected through gifts of conservation easements on contiguous parcels of land from Jennifer and George Tuthill and from Peter Brown. The conservation easements — known as the Patten Brook Conservation Easements — will play an important role in protecting the waters and watershed of Patten Brook, a tributary to the Fowler River, which is Newfound Lake’s largest tributary. The conservation easement on the Tuthill land encompasses 91 acres north and south of Washburn Road and along Cass Mill Road. The land includes over 2,100 feet of frontage on Patten Brook, 53 acres of woodland, and 38 acres of pasture and open fields, including farmland classified as prime or of statewide or local importance. The conservation easement on the Brownland encompasses 63 acres off Patten Road north of Patten Brook. The land is forested and includes springs, wetlands, and brooks that are tributaries to the brook. The conserved parcels include significant wildlife habitat highly ranked under the New Hampshire Wildlife Action Plan. They also include an extensive trail network that provides opportunities for hiking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and nature observation and study. In addition, the properties include popular snowmobile trails maintained by the Alexandria Ledge Climbers. The Patten Brook Conservation Easements ensure that the conserved lands will be protected from development in perpetuity — to preserve their natural and scenic qualities, their recreational opportunities, their wildlife habitat, and their potential for forest management and agricultural use. These lands will continue to be in current use, allowing snowmobile trail use, hiking, fishing, hunting, biking, and horseback riding as in the past according to LRCT President Don Berry A conservation easement is a legally enforceable commitment made by a landowner that he or she, and all future owners, will not develop the land. In donating a conservation easement the landowner retains ownership and use of the land for such activities as forestry, agriculture, and recreation. The organization holding the conservation easement, in this case LRCT, is responsible for monitoring the land to ensure compliance with the terms of the easement. The Tuthill conservation easement is especially important to LRCT because it was the first conservation project completed by LRCT in the Town of Alexandria and in the entire Newfound watershed. In addition, the Tuthill and Brown easements were part of LRCT’s first conservation project resulting from the Newfound Land Conservation Partnership, a collaboration among the Newfound Lake Region Association, the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests, and LRCT, as well as other interested organizations and individuals, to increase the pace of land conservation in the Newfound Watershed. In recognizing the donors of the Patten Brook Conservation Easements, LRCT President Don Berry said that “the Lakes Region Conservation Trust is extremely grateful to Jennifer and George Tuthill and to Peter Brown for these incredible conservation gifts, LRCT’s first in Alexandria and the Newfound Watershed.” He noted that these transactions demonstrate how the voluntary efforts of landowners working with a land trust can preserve land consistent with the owners’ vision and at the same time provide tremendous benefits to the community and the environment. Berry gave particular recognition to Jennifer Tuthill for “her energy, initiative, leadership, and commitment in working with LRCT on the Patten Brook Conservation Easements and in encouraging other landowners to consider conserving their land.” He added that it has been “an honor and pleasure to work with Jenny and George Tuthill and with Peter Brown on these conservation projects,” and said that

LRCT looks forward to its continued relationship with the Tuthill and Brown families in stewarding the conserved lands as well as to working with other landowners in the area who may be interested in exploring conservation options for their land. Berry also credited Hebron Conservation Commission Chair Martha Twombly for her leadership in the establishment of the Newfound Land Conservation Partnership (NLCP) and her assistance in bringing the Patten Brook Conservation Easements to completion. Finally, Berry recognized the Jennifer and George Tuthill, left, were recognized earlier this year for their conservation easement extraordinary support which protects the Patten Brook in Alexandria by Don Berry, president of the Lakes Region Conservafor the NLCP’s objection Trust.

A real American idol, Children’s Dentistry awards tickets to Big Time Rush Marquis de Lafayette, coming to Meredith on September 4

MEREDITH — The Meredith Historical Society will hear the words spoken by the Marquis de Lafayette, one of America’s earliest idols, when it meets on Tuesday, September 4 at 7 p.m. for a presentation by Alan Hoffman Born into a French family of warriors, General Lafayette chose to give his allegiance to the American colonists. He was a close friend of George Washington and truly idolized by Americans in the 19th century. More than 80 American counties, cities, towns and countless roads were named in his honor, including Lafayette Road in Portsmouth and Mount Lafayette in Franconia. Lafayette’s extraordinary reputation was based on his military record in the Revolution, his continued support of American interests, his storybook life, and more importantly his Farewell Tour of America. During this tour he visited all 24 states and Washington City as the last surviving major general of the Continental Army. His visits to NH – Portsmouth in 1824 and Concord in 1825 – will be discussed to illustrate the adulation the American people felt for this great general. Alan Hoffman earned his BA in history from Yale before earning a JD from Harvard Law School and practicing law for 35 years. After “discovering” Lafayette in 2002, he spent 2 years translating the French firsthand account of Lafayette’s Farewell Tour of America. Thistranslation is now in its second printing. Hoffman plans to speak in all 24 states that Lafayette visited on the Farewell Tour. He is speaking in Meredith through the auspices of the NH Humanities Council. The program is free and open to the public. A brief business meeting will precede Hoffman’s presentation. Refreshments will be served. The Meredith Historical Society is located on Main St., Meredith. For more information contact Karen Thorndike, 279-2275,

GILFORD — Dr. Melissa Kennell of Children’s Dentistry of the Lakes Region has announced the winner of four floor tickets to the Big Time Rush concert scheduled for September 1, at the Verizon Wireless Arena. In her efforts to provide her patients some summer fun; the Children’s Dentistry of the Lakes Region launched an “I Love Ice Cream” essay contest. Dr. Kennell knows kids and she knows kids love ice cream, contrary to what one may think a Children’s Dentist can encourage a splurge. “It is okay to indulge in moderation, we know kids love ice cream especially in the summer; so we will just continue to encourage brushing and flossing” Dr. Kennell shared. “It is not only our effort to encourage and teach good oral hygiene, but also to encourage and support our patients to enjoy some good old fashion fun, especially summer fun in our beautiful Lakes Region.” The outpour of entries made it hard to select a winner, however when Elyssa’s essay was read, the choice became clear. As a true fan to Big Time Rush, Elyssa posted this essay simply explaining her favorite ice cream and why; “My favorite has been my favorite for as long as I have been eating ice-cream. You don’t have to go to some fancy place to get it either. It is no particular name brand and is divine all by itself on a spoon on its way into my mouth. My favorite ice-cream puts a smile on my face and makes me indulge. Hands down it is C-HO-C-O-L-A-T-E!”

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Extremes won’t be necessary. Everything comes together because you did a little more of what you wanted to do and a little less of what you didn’t want to do. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Shoes are both functional and symbolic. In light of the meaning and influence that symbols have, might your life be revolutionized by a new pair of shoes? The jury is still out on that one. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). People who claim to have balance have a very different definition of it from yours. Once you figure out that balance is a myth, you can stop all that stressful striving for it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your whole goal is to make other people’s lives easier. You’ll be considerate and follow instructions, which makes others feel comfortable and safe around you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Think about what you really want so that you can better communicate it to others. The relationships in your life will test you. To pass the test, you have to be specific and clear. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 29). Who you are is always changing. You’re willing to define yourself differently, and you’ll like how this moves you to your next evolution. In September, you will change your thinking in regards to money, and your reality will obediently follow. Investments pay in November and May. Cancer and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 25, 49, 3 and 17.


ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your best self is seldom born of a perfectly comfortable environment. The ideal circumstance may be ideal precisely because rising above it is required. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The magic of lowered expectations will play a part in today’s action. If you feel that you are on a path to nowhere, anything that comes of the journey seems like a bonus. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You wouldn’t dare brag about your latest exploits, but if you don’t tell people what you’ve been up to, you’ll miss out on future opportunities. You’ll be powerfully modest as you express the truth about what you do. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your life force surges into and through everything you pick up today. Your results shape up in a way that is uniquely you. You can and will keep going until you get to the end of the goal. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Fear keeps you alert better than coffee can. It also plays with your sense of time, helping you experience the power of nanoseconds. Your performance will get a lift because you channel your fear well. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll confide in people and let them in on your secrets. A small reworking of the way you talk about yourself and your business will make a huge difference. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Don’t wait for the universe to sign your permission slip to go on the field trip of your dreams. The only kind of permission necessary for this one is the kind you can grant yourself.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Wednesday, Aug. 29, the 242nd day of 2012. There are 124 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Aug. 29, 1952, 4’33” (“Four Minutes, Thirtythree Seconds”), a three-movement composition by avant-garde composer John Cage, had its premiere in Woodstock, N.Y., as pianist David Tudor sat at a piano and, for a total of four minutes and 33 seconds, played... nothing. (According to Cage, the “music” consisted of the setting’s background noises, including the sounds of the increasingly restive audience.) On this date: In 1533, the last Incan King of Peru, Atahualpa (ah-tuh-WAHL’-puh), was executed on orders of Spanish conqueror Francisco Pizarro. In 1862, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing began operations at the United States Treasury. In 1877, the second president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Brigham Young, died in Salt Lake City, Utah, at age 76. In 1943, responding to a clampdown by Nazi occupiers, Denmark managed to scuttle most of its naval ships. In 1944, 15,000 American troops marched down the Champs Elysees (shahms ay-lee-ZAY’) in Paris as the French capital continued to celebrate its liberation from the Nazis. In 1957, the Senate gave final congressional approval to a Civil Rights Act after South Carolina Sen. Strom Thurmond (then a Democrat) ended a filibuster that had lasted 24 hours. In 1958, pop superstar Michael Jackson was born in Gary, Ind. In 1962, Malvin R. Goode began covering the United Nations for ABC-TV, becoming network television’s first black reporter. In 1972, swimmer Mark Spitz of the United States won the third of his seven gold medals at the Munich Olympics, finishing first in the 200meter freestyle. In 1982, Academy Award-winning actress Ingrid Bergman died in London on her 67th birthday. In 1987, Academy Award-winning actor Lee Marvin died in Tucson, Ariz., at age 63. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast near Buras, La., bringing floods that devastated New Orleans. More than 1,800 people in the region died. One year ago: In a sign Moammar Gadhafi had lost grip on his country, his wife and three of his children fled Libya to neighboring Algeria. Grammy-winning blues musician David “Honey Boy” Edwards, believed to be the oldest surviving Delta bluesman, died in his Chicago home at age 96. Today’s Birthdays: Actor-director Lord Richard Attenborough is 89. Movie director William Friedkin is 77. Actor Elliott Gould is 74. Movie director Joel Schumacher is 73. TV personality Robin Leach is 71. Actor Ray Wise is 65. Actress Deborah Van Valkenburgh is 60. Dancer-choreographer Mark Morris is 56. Country musician Dan Truman is 56.

Page 20 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, August 29, 2012


Dear Annie: I am married to a great guy, and we have two wonderful, intelligent teens. But my mother-in-law is causing great stress. “Mama” was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder 10 years ago and is prescribed a cocktail of drugs to help with a preponderance of violent mood swings, anger, resentment and occasional dissociation. She is a textbook narcissist who can only demand love for herself and is unable to give to others. Her family relationships and many of her friendships have taken a dive. It’s a wonder she can hold down a job. Her big trigger is perceived rejection. When she was in our home, she expected to be everyone’s entire focus. She demanded the full attention and affection of my husband and deeply resented his relationship with his own children. Needless to say, invitations to holiday gatherings dwindled over the years. Her grandchildren have grown up without her in their lives, although we have taken care not to poison them against her. Now, Mama has taken herself off all meds and declared herself cured. She has convinced herself that her diagnosis was wrong, and that her problem all along has been emotional abuse from others, including her children and grandchildren. In short, everyone else is to blame. The trouble now is that she is blogging on the Internet, publicly criticizing family members, including our teenage kids and their cousins. The adults can dismiss this as the ranting of a mentally ill person, but we’re afraid our kids are going to come across the blog one of these days. Any advice? -- Also Sleepless, but in Sonoma Dear Sonoma: You have our sympathy dealing with such a difficult situation. You don’t have to poison the children against Grandma to have a heartfelt discussion on mental illness. The kids are old enough to understand that their grandmother is not well, and that her behavior can be unpredict-

able and sometimes unkind. They may never see her blog, but if they do, you will have done all you can to inoculate them against whatever damaging reaction they may have. Dear Annie: I work in a small office with one of the most unprofessional and disgusting co-workers a person could have. My main complaint is that when we are in the break room, “Penny” takes out her dentures and sets them on the table. Between the gross dentures and her vulgar mouth, none of us wants to take a break in the one area we have. Nobody, not even management, is willing to address the issue. She reads your column, so please print this. -- Grossed Out Dear Grossed Out: We are sympathetic to Penny’s desire to be comfortable in the break room, but it is important to be considerate of others who share your space. Don’t count on her seeing herself in the column or doing anything about it. Our suggestions are for you: You can take breaks when Penny is not using the room; you can ignore her dentures to the best of your ability; or you can bite the bullet and ask politely if she would refrain from removing her dentures when others are present. Dear Annie: “Loving Mom, Disgusted Mother-in-Law” is worried that her daughter will return to her drug-abusing husband. It’s too bad the daughter isn’t going to Al-Anon. They said I would know when I wanted to make the break. It comes down to how much pain you can tolerate before you are willing to make changes. I realized two things: that I didn’t want him to die in the house, and that we would lose our home if I didn’t do something. He finally reached sobriety six years after the divorce and managed to be a good dad for 22 more. -- J. Dear J.: Self-help groups like Al-Anon ( and Nar-Anon ( can be godsends for those who live with addicts. Thank you.

Jane Pappe, a member of the Country Village Quilt Guild, will be teaching the Japanese method for Kanzashi Fabric Flowers during the September 5 meeting of the Guild at the Moultonborough Life Safety Building on Rt. 25, from 1:30-3 p.m. These colorful flowers make great magnets, hair ornaments, bag accessories, package toppers and have many other uses. Jane is supplying free kits for each to assemble one flower at the meeting. The Guild welcomes all, but people should bring a needle, scissors, strong quilting type thread, tacky glue, pins and a decorative button. For a preview, many free patterns can be found on the internet under Kanzashi Flowers, which may be helpful as a visual to print out for the meeting. (Courtesy photo)

Grammy winning Stone Temple Pilots roll into Meadowrook on Friday

GILFORD — The Meadowbrook U.S. Cellular Pavilion will host the Stone Temple Pilots on Friday, August 31. Based out of San Diego, Stone Temple Pilots released their first album, Core, in 1992. Coming at the height of grunge, Core demonstrated a departure from the rock albums of the era.

stream Rock charts. Purple focused on hard rock but unlike Core, also made room for pop songs like “Still Remains” and the Led Zeppelin-style acoustic number “Pretty Penny.” By this point, Stone Temple Pilots were well on their way to becoming one of the decade’s most divisive bands. Over the last two decades, STP has earned an impressive amount of accolades including an eight times platinum debut album, 16 singles on the Billboard rock charts (six of which peaked at #1), a “Best Hard Rock Performance” Grammy in 1994, and the sale of nearly 40 million records worldwide before taking a break in 2002.
