LACONIA — Speaking to nearly 600 supporters at the Middle School yesterday, First Lady Michelle Obama reminded her listeners that the president “can’t do it alone” and urged them to join the campaign for his re-election by reaching out to another. Extolling “the power of one,” she declared “one voice can change a room, a city, a state, a nation” and exclaimed “shake ‘em up.”

This was a rallying cry aimed at rekindling the enthusiasm among rank-andfile voters that swept Barack Obama to the presidency in 2008. “That’s how we did it four years ago,” the First Lady recalled, “and that’s how we’re going to do it again.” She asked “on November 7 do you want to find yourself wondering could I have done more or feeling the power of four more years” and was at once met with the chant of “four more years!” After former New Hampshire Attorney

MASON, Ohio (AP) — One of the biggest drug dealers in the Cincinnati area was led into court this week. He looked more like the president of the math club — skinny, pale, bespectacled, dressed in a blue buttoned-down shirt and khakis, and just 17 years old. Three weeks before he was supposed to start his senior year in high school, Tyler Pagenstecher pleaded guilty to drug-trafficking charges in juvenile court after being arrested and accused of playing a major role in a ring that sold as much as $20,000 worth of high-grade marijuana a month to fellow students in and around this well-to-do suburb. “He is his own little czar over this high school scenario,” said John Burke, commander of the Warren County Drug Task Force, adding that he has never seen a more successful teenage drug dealer in his jurisdiction. At his sentencing Sept. 18, Pagenstecher see CZAR page 11

payers from being hit by the alternative minimum tax, shielding them from higher levies originally meant to prevent the rich from escaping taxes altogether. The bill faces an uncertain future and is likely to get lumped into a year-end debate in which lawmakers tackle the so-called fiscal cliff — a combination of the expiration of Bush-era tax cuts and $110 billion in automatic spending cuts to the Pentagon and domestic programs that, taken together, have the potential to drive the economy back into recession.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate’s tax-writing panel voted to renew dozens of tax breaks for businesses like biodiesel and wind energy producers, even as the GOP-controlled House passed symbolic legislation to erase them and create a new tax code with lower rates and fewer special interest tax breaks. The $200 billion-plus package was approved by the Senate Finance Committee Thursday on a bipartisan 19-5 vote. It was anchored by a two-year provision to protect middle- and upper-income tax-

The action came as Congress limped out of town for a five-week vacation. The House also passed drought relief legislation and reprimanded one of its members, while a cybersecurity bill ran aground in the Senate. The Senate Appropriations panel approved a $604 billion Pentagon spending bill while rejecting a bid by Republicans to require defense contractors to send out notices of possible job layoffs due to the possible cuts. The cost of Thursday’s package ballooned see TAX BREAKS page 12

European Central Bank willing to buy bonds to save the euro more forceful remedies than leaders have so far been able to muster. The move towards bond buying came a day after the Federal Reserve hinted it was leaning toward further action to stimulate U.S. growth, highlighting the growing pressure on central bankers to rescue weak economies across the globe. Financial markets were disappointed by the lack of immediate action and that the bank had few specifics to offer on the

FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — The European Central Bank is preparing to unleash its financial might and buy government bonds to help drive down borrowing costs in debt-ridden countries like Spain and Italy, caught in the grip of what president Mario Draghi called a “worsening crisis.” Draghi urged leaders of the 17 countries that use the euro to use their bailout fund to take the same action, sending a clear message: Europe’s financial crisis requires

bank’s emerging plan to save the euro. Stocks were sharply lower across Europe, while borrowing costs crept higher for the eurozone’s financially strapped countries. Draghi said ECB policymakers will work on a more detailed plan in coming weeks, including how much money to put into the effort to lower interest rates on governments’ short-term bonds. The bank would hope for better results than an earlier bond-buying see EURO page 16

Kofi Annan quits as Syrian envoy, blames lack of unity from world powers BEIRUT (AP) — Kofi Annan announced his resignation Thursday as peace envoy to Syria and issued a blistering critique of world powers, bringing to a dramatic end a frustrating six-month effort that failed to achieve even a temporary cease-fire as the country plunged into civil war.

Annan also had harsh words for the Syrian regime, saying it was clear President Bashar Assad “must leave office.” As the violence escalated on the ground, rebels used a captured tank to shell a military air base near Aleppo — one of the first known uses of heavy weapons by the

Michael Barone 

Answered prayers = greater partisanship “Answered prayers,” Saint Teresa of Avila is supposed to have said, “cause more tears than those that go unanswered.” Especially, I fear, the answered prayers of political scientists. These days, you hear academics and pundits bemoaning hyperpartisanship of our politics. It has never been worse, some say. This shows a certain ignorance about history. Go back and read the things that John Adams’ and Thomas Jefferson’s partisans were saying about each other in 1800. Or reflect on the fact that Aaron Burr, Jefferson’s first vice president, and Andrew Jackson, the first president to call himself a Democrat, both killed men in duels. And when you go back in history, searching for that golden moment when politicians of both parties spoke warmly of each other, you only find some glimmers here and there. Some eminent political scientists today argue that we would have less virulent partisanship if we entrusted the drawing of congressional and legislative districts to nonpartisan commissions. Maybe that would have some marginal effect. But in California and Arizona, which recently set up such panels, Democrats have cleverly gamed the system to get favorable district lines. Republicans will presumably try to do the same next time. In any case, there will still be many one-party districts. I ascribe much of the partisan tone of today’s politics to two changes urged by the political scientists I studied in college nearly half a century ago. One was the idea that we should have one clearly liberal and one clearly conservative party. This was a popular enough argument in the 1940s and 1950s that Gallup used to test it in polls. Political scientists and sympathetic journalists were annoyed that there were lots of Southern (and some non-Southern) conservatives in the Democratic Party and that there were a fair number of pretty liberal Republicans in big states like New York and California. Wouldn’t it make more sense, they asked, to have all the liberals in one party and all the conservatives in the other? That way, they said, voters would have a clear choice, and the winning party (the liberals, most of them hoped) would be able to enact its programs into law. There are indeed rational arguments for this. For years, Southern whites clung to the Democratic label because of memories of the Civil War, while many liberal Northerners supported Republicans because

they disliked big city Democratic political machines. Neither party was ideologically coherent. Today, it’s clear that the prayers of the midcentury reformers have been answered. The Republican Party is a clearly and nearly unanimously a conservative party, while the Democratic Party is the natural home for liberals. As a result, there are more party-line votes in Congress than there were half a century ago. There are fewer friendships and alliances across party lines. Parties with supermajorities can enact their programs (e.g., Obamacare) even in the face of hostile public opinion. Another idea peddled by political scientists and some thoughtful liberal politicians half a century ago was that there should be more party discipline in Congress. Rep. Richard Bolling, frustrated that Democratic House speakers didn’t force Southern conservatives to vote the liberal line, wrote two books in the 1960s advocating this. Liberal political scientists and columnists liked the idea. So when Democrats won big majorities in the Watergate year of 1974, San Francisco Rep. Phillip Burton in a typical backroom maneuver, engineered the election of Democratic committee chairmen and important subcommittee chairmen by secret ballot. House Republicans adopted a similar rule, providing for election by an elected steering committee, after their big win in 1994. There’s a certain logic to this, and I believe the results on balance have been positive. You don’t see senile chairmen frozen in office by the seniority system (a progressive reform in 1911) anymore, and both parties have generally chosen competent chairmen. But — and here’s the answered prayers department — you also get more partisan politics. Anyone wanting a chairmanship someday had better not dissent from party orthodoxy very often. A reputation for bipartisanship doesn’t help you get ahead when members of the other party don’t get a vote. The fact is that in a free electoral system, politics will always be adversarial. And in a two-party system, it will often be bitterly partisan in tone. You can pray that things will be different. But you may not like how your prayers are answered. (Syndicated columnist Michael Barone is senior political analyst for The Washington Examiner, is a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, a Fox News Channel contributor and co-author of The Almanac of American Politics.)

LETTERS Obama was referring to the social contracts that helped Bob To the editor, Rep. Robert Greemore must be as desperate as Fox News. Being part of the right wing echo machine, he will say anything. I can’t call Bob a liar because I have come to know that right wingers have their heads in the sand and when they don’t they behave like herd animals, believing some pretty amazing nonsense. Their “militant” myopia is mind-boggling at times. Seven studies in a row have shown Fox viewers to be the least educated on news. The last one basically said living in a cave made you more news savvy than watching Fox News. When President Obama said “you didn’t build that” he was referring to the social contracts, helping hands and the infrastructure that aided you in creating a business. The roads, the communications, the social networks etc; you didn’t build that but you used it to build your company. Somebody else built the roads you brought your equipment through. Someone else built the power lines. Some else...I could go on and on. Conservatives seem willfully clueless to the social contract and communitarian aspects of civilization except in military and church-going matters (God and Guns!). They cherry pick. Go figure. Civilization was built by individuals within a communitarian model. Civic Pride! Banding together for the good of all. Just about everything we do has a communitarian aspect to it yet the right wingers seem oblivious to it as if they are all alone on another planet. They are “closed” people and that is

why you see so many of them gravitate towards Ayn Rand’s sociopathic ideas. Their minds are no longer open for business. What these misguided people miss is that as a society, in war and in peace, we are all in this together.”We the people” is the foundation for our constitution, the laws made pursuant to it, and the society that emerged. So, Bob, the next time you cast a vote, I will assume you did not do your homework first. If you couldn’t get this one right, you probably don’t get anything complicated right. After all, this was a no-brainer if you had scratched below the surface of the right wing noise machine. President Obama’s statements were based on Elizabeth Warren’s statements. Here is some of what Warren said: “You built a factory out there? Good for you,” she says. “But I want to be clear: You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for; you hired workers the rest of us paid to educate; you were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn’t have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did.” So, Bob, use those hooves and do some digging for the truth! As to the gentleman who said he was voting for Harry Accornero, I say “Are You Insane?” James Veverka Tilton

He was telling Bob, ‘You’re not on your own, we’re in this together’ To the editor, It is unfortunate that Bob Greemore (“Growing Business” 8/2) gives in to sound bite politics when, in context, he and President Obama are actually saying the same thing. In context, President Obama said, “when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together.” Bob said essentially the same thing: he has been successful, and he was lucky enough to have help along the way. He inherited machines from his father, he received great training from

from his wife’s expertise. As the president said, “If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life ...Somebody helped create this unbelievable American system ...that allowed you to achieve.” Bob Greemore’s success story is inspirational. Success is about hard work, sacrifice and sleepless nights. It is also, as the president said, because “...You’re not on your own, we’re in this together.” Kate Miller

LETTERS Mr. Lamb, voters don’t want senator who is so very inflexible To the editor, I am a voter in N.H. Senate District 2 and would like to learn more about the candidates running for election in this district. As for Senator Forrester, I can look to the promises she made when elected and the record she has since being in office. What is troubling to me is trying to find out what Mr. Lamb, the opponent stands for. So far I’ve discovered that he is a former Wall Street banker, the chair of the Plymouth Area Democrats, and he refuses to answer hypothetical questions, which was his response at a recent house party event when asked what he would have done to fix the $800-million deficit N.H. was facing in 2010. Based on a recent article written by a reporter I gather that he also refuses to compromise. There is much ado being made claiming that Senator Forrester is refusing to have any regular debates when she would like forums where the voters ask the questions of both candidates. Senator Forrester offered a compromise to Mr. Lamb to choose the format of the Plymouth event that he rejected because he wants to choose the location and format of EVERY event they jointly appear at. The voters are going to have to make a choice at the polls in November. These choices are not only for which senator to elect but also for their representatives in the N.H. House. In

these economically challenging times the state budget is critical to N.H.’s success. These budget bills originate in the House and these representatives also make up the Belknap County Delegation and approve the county budget. These budgets will affect the taxpayers of N.H. and I believe that the voters should be able to hear from ALL the candidates. I have read and heard that Mr. Lamb is also refusing to allow any candidates for the N.H. House to appear at any event he is at. I guess he doesn’t want to be inclusive and let the VOTERS hear ALL the candidates. I really do hope that someone can convince Mr. Lamb that the voters do not want a senator who is so very inflexible and unbending. I don’t want someone who refuses to be inclusive and is unwilling to compromise. Please Mr. Lamb, I ask you and I am quite certain the voters in this district ask you to accept Senator Forrester’s offer to have an event in Meredith arranged by her volunteers; an event in Plymouth arranged by your volunteers and an event in Haverhill arranged by the local media. I and the voters in District 2 are awaiting your response. You should know that your response could be the decision maker for the voters this November. Greg Knytych New Hampton

Why are rich Democrats so nice and rich Republicans so evil? To the editor, After reading several newspapers and visiting several blogs, I have a few unanswered questions. They are: — Why do Democrats dislike successful people? — Why don’t the Democrats vilify Larry Ellison, Bill Gates and Warren Buffett (combined worth $126-billion)? — Why don’t the Democrats vilify GE for outsourcing jobs? — Why are rich Democrats nice but rich Republicans are evil? — Did Patrick Kennedy, Al Gore, John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid pay more than their ‘fair share’? — Why is it that only Democrats do not have a photo ID? — Why is it that in Pennsylvania (PA Voter ID law in court) over 1-million Democrats have never flown, cashed a check or have a driver license? — Why does an employer have to withhold union dues? Why can’t the union member pay the dues after receiving their pay?

— Why are 8 out 10 of the most expensive states to reside in run by Democrats? — Why are the most of the top 10 states for jobs “right-to-work” states? They are Texas, Utah, Virginia, North Carolina and North Dakota. — Why has Daily Kos (progressive blog) endorsed Carol Shea-Porter and Ann Kuster? Do Carol Shea-Porter and Ann Kuster agree with Daily Kos ‘ position on issues? Are Carol SheaPorter and Ann Kuster for banning guns? — Is Eric Holders job as attorney general to continue to sue the states? — Why can’t Ms Cilley tells us what she would consider as “New” taxes? Does she want a sale tax? Does she want a state income tax? Will she tax Social Security (some states do)? Will she tax pensions? I will continue to search for answers to my questions. Jim Mayotte Sanbornton

Burton’s candidacy merits nonpartisan consideration & support To the editor, The purpose of the letter is to recommend that the voters in NH District 1 return Raymond S. Burton to the NH Executive Council. I have come to know Councilor Burton during my 35 years working with and for towns and cities here in N.H. Over these years I have found him to be one of the most consistently responsive and concerned elected officials serving in Concord. Ray is a gentleman politician who,

while being faithful to his conservative principles, always seems to put people ahead of politics. He is tireless in his representation of the people and communities in N.H., especially those in District 1. His candidacy warrants nonpartisan consideration and support from those of us who depend upon effective representation in Concord. Donald R. Jutton Moultonborough

LETTERS Neighbors In Need supports wonderful organizations in our area To the editor, Dear Supporters of Neighbors in Need: As most of you know, Neighbors in Need (NIN) only works with and through area non-profits and churches in assisting those in need in our community. We do that to assure that these families and individuals receive the caring support they need through face-to-face meetings in their neighborhood settings. I thought I would devote this summer letter to introducing you to these organizations. One of the largest community support organizations in the Lakes Region is the St. Vincent de Paul Society in Laconia. They utilize about 16 volunteers organized into 2-person teams that meet with people who request assistance for rent, heat, utilities, dental, and car repairs. In addition to the funds they receive from NIN, they also assist with about $130,000 of their own funds. Their financial assistance program started in 1995. They also operate a thrift store, food pantry, and the Children’s Foundation. Another long-time partner with NIN is the Salvation Army. They receive requests for a variety of needs. Each request is an opportunity to sit down with the individuals, get a clear picture of their current situation and see if there are other areas in which they can assist. Their services include financial assistance, thrift store vouchers, food pantry, Carey House Homeless Shelter, Christmas , Friendly Kitchen, church, Sunday School, camp, Kids Clubs, Prayer Breakfast, Bible Study, women’s ministries and volunteer opportunities ServiceLink is a state-wide organization that operates locally in Laconia that provides information and assistance to seniors, adults with disabilities and their caregivers about Medicare, Medicaid, caregiver sup-

port and more. Folks can call them with any question or need and help to fulfill their need using our community providers. They utilize NIN funds for a service or need that is not affordable to the caller and there are no programs that will pay for it. One of the more active churches involved in providing financial assistance is the United Baptist Church of Lakeport. Many families come to their Deacon’s Board on an ongoing basis such as the young woman who was homeless with a 3-year-old baby seeking shelter, a woman who was disabled who couldn’t pay her electric bill, and the family whose father was out of work and was homeless. NIN provided the funds for these needs. Step Ahead is a Belknap and Lower Grafton County Comprehensive Family Support Program, funded by DHHS and located at Lakes Region Community Services’ Family Resource Center of Central NH in Laconia. Step Ahead’s focus is on families who are experiencing stress and who have children birth through 18. Referral sources include DCYF, doctors, agencies, friends, and selfreferred. We help by linking to community resources and offer parenting education, court support, stress management, and budgeting. These are just a few of the wonderful organizations that NIN supports throughout the year. Some of them also participate in Neighbors in Need through their membership on our board of directors. On behalf of the board of Neighbors in Need, we thank you for your support of these agencies and churches through Neighbors in Need and wish all of you health and happiness during this summer season! Bill Johnson, President Neighbors in Need Gilford

PURPLE Crying educates parents about this developmental stage To the editor, Getting involved with keeping infants safe in Laconia is as easy as clicking your needles! CLICK for Babies: Period of PURPLE Crying caps is a grassroots campaign inviting knitters and crocheters across North America to make purple colored baby caps. The caps will be given to families delivering infants in area hospitals in November and December. Purple caps will serve as a reminder to new parents who receive the Period of PURPLE Crying during their stay in the hospital. This evidence-based program educates parents about normal infant crying, ways to cope with the crying and the dangers of reacting in frustration by shaking or abusing an infant. Parents can learn more about this developmental stage of increased crying at Information about the Period of PURPLE Crying is currently shared with new parents at 11 of New Hampshire’s 20 birthing hospitals, including Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia. To learn more about the purple cap campaign, get patterns for

baby caps or connect with other knitters, visit The Family Resource Center of Central New Hampshire recently moved to 719 Main Street in Laconia and is serving as a collection site for CLICK for Babies. The Family Resource Center is an program of Lakes Region Community Services. They work to strengthen families and thereby strengthen the communities in which they live by enhancing their social connections and by providing support, services, and resources utilizing family support principles. We are pleased to be partnering with them on CLICK for Babies. NH Children’s Trust is coordinating this year’s statewide campaign with a goal of collecting 1,000 caps by October 1. To learn of other collection sites around the state contact New Hampshire Children’s Trust at 603224-1279 or info@nhchildrenstrust. org. Caps can also be mailed to NH Children’s Trust at 10 Ferry Street, Suite 315 Concord NH 03301. Maria Doyle, LICSW N.H. Children’s Trust Concord

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, August 3, 2012 — Page 7



House candidates are very capable of setting up their own events To the editor, This past weekend ,a friend forwarded Jeanie Forrester’s July 28th newsletter “State District 2 News” to me. The newsletter let us know that she was out putting up campaign signs and continued, “the campaign is in full swing and, with the help of so many, we’ve had a great presence in parades, old home days, and fairs.” Nowhere in that newsletter was there mention of any efforts to organize public events with her challenger, Bob Lamb. (Weeks ago, Bob Lamb had suggested a series of five debates to be held all around this huge Senate District.) No suggestion that they are working on the schedule, nothing. Today there is an article in The Laconia Daily Sun which reports that Sen. Forrester wishes to have just three events with Mr. Lamb and is insisting that the House candidates attend as well. I am very disappointed at her unwillingness to agree to the five debates. A candidates’ forum is a good way to introduce yourself to the public, but it is not the kind of venue that would allow a real discussion about Senator Forrester’s record or Mr. Lamb’s experience, for example. Jeannie Forrester has committed to an hour and a half time length for the first event in Meredith, with the participation of the House candidates. How will 90 minutes provide sufficient time for two Senate candidates and nine state rep candidates to share anything but one or two points with the voters? Four of the state rep candidates are from Gilford (which isn’t even in Senate District 2!) so it is likely that few attending a Meredith event would be familiar with them and would need some time to learn who they are. With a moderator, questions and 11 candidates, there would be less than 10 minutes of speaking time for each candidate. Clearly an hour and a half severely limits the ability of the voters to learn anything in depth about any of the candidates, their positions and records. It seems odd to me that Sen. Forrester is so insistent that the state rep candidates participate in the same events as she and Mr. Lamb and that

the total number be limited to three. It makes me, for one, wonder why. She must think it to her advantage to limit the time and thus her exposure to questions about her Senate record of the last two years. It is a distinct disadvantage to the voters of Meredith (and the other towns in Senate District 2) who elected her. They deserve more opportunities to hear both candidates in honest oneon-one debates and be able to decide for themselves whether the person they elected two years ago has represented them as they hoped and expected. The candidates for the House are certainly capable of setting up their own events and there is plenty of time prior to election day for them to do this. There are House candidates in towns other than Meredith, Plymouth and Haverhill who will be giving their voters the chance to get to know them. Meredith and Gilford voters should have plenty of time to get to know their House candidates as well, not a single 90 minute session, shared with the Senate candidates. Sadly, those who read the article today, as well as Mr. Lamb’s letter from weeks ago, can only surmise that Sen. Forrester and her campaign have intentionally delayed and are continuing to work to avoid one-on-one debates with Mr. Lamb in Meredith and in other towns in the District. Sen. Forrester denies that she is unwilling to debate Mr. Lamb, but her actions demonstrate otherwise. It is these debates that are important to the voters in Sentate District 2, not what signs are going up and from what parades a candidate is waving to us. The voters of Senate District 2 cannot learn anything from a sign, or a smile and a wave; we deserve to hear from Sen. Forrester and Mr. Lamb in direct debates. This is the most effective way voters have to learn about the candidates and their various positions. The majority of voters in N.H., whether Republican, Democrat or Independent, are interested in having the candidates give sufficient time to share their views and positions with the voters and answer their questions. We deserve no less. Anne Rogers Meredith

I’m a big fan of versatility of the New Hampshire Music Festival To the editor, Why the New Hampshire Music Festival is described as one of the Lakes Region’s best kept secrets really amazes me! The Festival has been around for 60 years, and it has evolved and improved from those early years when I first heard their wonderful music on a hot summer night in the gym at Inter-Lakes High School in Meredith. If you haven’t attended one of their concerts, now held in the acoustically superior Silver Hall at Plymouth State University, you really should check them out. Talented musicians come from all over the world to meet here every summer and make beautiful music together – everything from classical to jazz. It has been wonderful having the world renowned Paul Polivnick return this year as Conductor Laureate to direct the first three weeks of the Symphony Series, and the next three weeks’ con-

fied guest conductors. Chamber music concerts, offered biweekly on Tuesday nights, are a delightful experience, and I think the Pops concerts have also been exceptional. The best way to describe The Pops Series is Boston Pops meets Big Band, and what a great meeting they have had in their first two concerts! And the last Pops concert on Saturday, August 11th, will pay tribute to the music of Ray Charles. Festival Pops Conductor Matt Catingub is a delightfully engaging and multi-talented entertainer who keeps the musicians as well as the audience smiling and tapping their feet. I’m a big fan of the versatility of the New Hampshire Music Festival, and also the fact that they provide quality music education in many local schools. We all need to support this musical gem that calls the Lakes Region home! Sydney B. Stewart, Moultonborough

As an avid bicyclist, the spin classes are a great way to keep in shape in the off season. The newest class, Body Combat, is one of my favorites what a way to relieve some frustrations and build muscle definition. Zumba is so much fun, it’s a great work out. I recently went through the Commit To Be Fit program at the club - I had lost 100 pounds prior to the program and couldn’t seem to lose any more weight. This 13 week program was a great eye opener for me. I always said I knew what I needed to do, but the program taught me so much more. I’ve continued the healthy lifestyle and have lost another 50 plus pounds. No matter what fitness level you are at, there is something for you. I encourage you to come join the fun and look forward to seeing new faces at the gym.” ~ Bettie C.

Backed by Secret Service agents, U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama greets some of the 600 people who  came to Laconia Middle School of Friday to hear her campaign on behalf of her husband, President  Barack Obama. (Karen Bobotas/for The Laconia Daily Sun)

FIRST LADY from page one introduced the First Lady to a large crowd, nearly three-fourths of whom were women. Frequently interrupted by cheers and applause, the First Lady spoke with passion and resolve, punctuated with moments of wry humor, without once directly referring to her husband’s opponent, Republican Mitt Romney. Addressing “basic American values,” the First Lady told of her father, who manned a pump station at the Chicago Water Works throughout his working life. “He took pride in earning a simple living and paying his bills on time,” she said. At the same time, she said that he saved to send her and her brother to college and while both earned scholarships, received grants and took loans, their father paid a share and always on time. “That is his story as well as mine,” the First Lady said of the president, adding with a smile “that’s why I married him. Barack knows what it means when a family struggles. Barack knows the American dream because he’s lived it,” she declared. “Everyone should have a fair shot,” she continued.”Everyone should be given the opportunity worthy of their promise.” But, she stressed, “ when you walk through that door of opportunity you don’t slam it behind you. You reach back.” “I’ve had the opportunity to see what being president is like up close and personal,” the First Lady remarked coyly. “I’ve seen some things.” She explained that despite being surrounded by people offering advice, when faced with difficult decisions “the only thing you have to guide you are your values. Who you are and

what you stand for. We all know who my husband is and Barack Obama stands for,” she said, drawing thunderous applause. Recounting the achievements of the president’s first term, the First Lady began by reminding her listeners that when he took office 750,000 jobs were disappearing each month. Conceding that the economy is growing slowly, she said that in the last 28 months the private sector has recovered four million jobs. Against the advice of some, she said the president tackled health care and enacted the most far reaching reforms in half a century. When she noted that the president reaffirmed the reproductive rights of women, the room burst into applause. She said that the president responsibly ended the war in Iraq and provided firms with incentives to hire veterans. “And our service men and women no longer have to lie to serve the country they love,” she added. Funding for Pell Grants for higher education have been doubled and higher interest rates on student loans have been forestalled. “All of that is at stake, is on the line,” the First Lady warned in what she expected to be a close election. “Give us the chance to finish what we’ve started.” The appearance of the First Lady fell between a private fundraising event at the home of Gary and Meg Hirschberg of Stoney Field Farm in Holderness, and a second address at Southern New Hampshire University in Manchester. Her presence reflects the importance the Obama campaign assigns to New Hampshire, where he won by less than 80,000 votes in 2008.

First Lady’s visit to Laconia not good news for one business owner who had a very slow day BY ROGER AMSDEN FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

Neighbor raising funds for 10-year-old Laconia girl who lost her glass eye while swimming

Atty. Stanley Robinson is designated as a Federal Relief Agency by an act of Congress & has proudly assisted consumers seeking debt relief under the US Bankruptcy code for over 30 years.



LACONIA — For 10-year-old Jennifer Miller a hot day in July and the desire to go swimming with her friends will cost her family as much as $10,000 to replace the glass eye she lost in the Winnipesaukee River. She said she was swimming near the Messer Street railroad trestle, something she admits her parents had forbidden her to do, when she noticed her glass eye was missing. “I don’t jump off. It’s kind of scary,” she said. Jennifer said the other kids she was swimming with, some of them she said she didn’t know, tried to help her. She said many of the boys ran home, got some goggles, and were swimming around trying to find her eye. Friend and neighbor Alyssa Phillips said she was passing through and heard the children yelling “come help us, come help us” and she went down to see what was happening. The Laconia Fire Department was called and one of their firefighters swam in the river using a mask and flippers but was unable to find the glass eye.

Jennifer returned Wednesday with dive instructor and Laconia Firefighter Jay Ellingson and fellow diver Janna Bean, who were diving on their own time, but the two were unable to find the eye. Phillips said the divers told her there appeared to be a big drop off just down river from where she lost her eye. She also said other children jumping from the trestle were stirring up the river bed making it even more difficult for the divers who came up empty. Jennifer, a tall, pretty girl with a blond “pixie” haircut and a huge smile, is a fifth grader at Woodland Height’s Elementary School. She lives on Jewett Street with her parents and five siblings and says her favorite subject in school is writing. Mother Heidi Miller said Jennifer was 9-months old when she was diagnosed with a 10-mm tumor in her right eye. Heidi Miller said the family was living in Sanbornton at the time and her Healthy Kids insurance sent Jennifer to a Boston Hospital where she underwent three rounds of radiation and chemotherapy but ultimately her eye was removed. Jennifer’s father, an Army veteran who served in see next page

from preceding page Vietnam and Germany, had a stroke about two years ago and is wheelchair bound. Heidi Miller said she stays home to care for him and her other children and the family’s only income is his Wayne Miller’s Social Security and Military Pension. She said when her husband began collection his pensions — a total of $3,800 a month — the family of seven no longer qualified for federal and state aid and none of her three youngest children, including Jennifer, has health insurance. She also said Medicaid may consider a glass eye cosmetic and not pay for its replacement. Phillips, who used to work for a social service agency, said Miller family helped her through a rough patch in her life about a year ago and now it’s time for her to give back. She is sponsoring a spaghetti dinner at the Elks Club on Rte. 11-A in Gilford on August 18 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. as an effort to raise money to replace Jennifer’s glass eye. She is also in the process of setting up a special account at one of the local banks for people

who want to make donations. Heidi Miller said she contacted Jahrling Ocular Prosthetics in Boston, the company that has made Jennifer’s eyes and they have told her they would try and find a supplier who would help her at a reduced cost. Heidi Miller said the prosthetics company told her Jennifer should also be fitted for some special eye goggles for when she participates in sports — including swimming. But for now, Jennifer is out of the water. The prosthetics company told her not to swim for fear of getting any dirt in her eye socket that could cause an infection. She also said she would like to return to playing basketball and soccer when school begins in the fall. Jennifer and her family also wanted the thank the Fire Department, the many friends and neighbors who have reached out to help her, and the Bean family who are their landlords and who recently installed a handicap ramp so Wayne Miller could more easily access his apartment.

PHOTO from page one McHugh sentenced him to serve three to 7 1/2 years in the N.H. State Prison, all suspended, pending good behavior for two years. He must also register with the state of New Hampshire as a sex offender. Sanborn was charged with trying to entice a 12-year-old girl, a 14-yearold girl and a 16-year-old girl to send him pictures of themselves by sending them pictures of his genitals. According to motions filed by the Belknap County Prosecutors Office, during the month of December 2011, Sanborn contacted a 12-year-old via Facebook. He was able to get her cell phone number when she posted it on her Facebook page, not realizing all her “friends,” including Sanborn, could see it. He contacted the girl via text message and asked her how old she was. When she told him 12, he said “cool, I don’t care” telling her he was 17-yearsold. When Sanborn asked the girl to meet him she said “no” after which he sent her a photo of his erect penis. The victim didn’t send a picture of herself and refused further contact because “he’s gross.” On April 26, 2012, the defendant contacted the girl again. The girl gave her cell phone to her older sister who texted back that she was 14-year-old. Sanborn

replied that he was “15 (too) here hold on” and sent the same picture of his erect penis to the 14-year-old. The 14-year-old went to her father who reported it to police. A police dispatcher called the return number and got a voice message saying, “You have reached Cody Sanborn, leave a message.” After a police investigation, he was charged with the two felonies for these two text messages. On the same date he sent the same picture to 16-year-old girl and was charged with the misdemeanor. During his police interview, Sanborn admitted to having more than 200 pictures of girls between 14 and 16 on his cell phone, which police verified after getting a search warrant for his phone and computer. Sanborn must report to jail on August 6. He was fined $1,000 plus $240 in court costs all of which was suspended. Two felony charges of prohibited use of computers were not prosecuted. Tilton Police declined comment on the sentencing saying only that they want parents to be vigilant about monitoring their children’s use of cell phones and computers and to encourage children that if they are contacted by a stranger via any means to tell a trusted adult immediately. — Gail Ober

CZAR from page 2 could be ordered held until he turns 21. While some neighbors and fellow students at Mason High School were shocked at the arrest, saying Pagenstecher seemed like an ordinary, easygoing kid who liked skateboarding, riding bikes and hanging out, 17-yearold friend Leslie Philpot said she and plenty of others knew he smoked pot and suspected he sold it, too. “Anyone he was friends with knew,” she said. “He never came out and said, ‘I sell drugs’ but he would say things where you know what he was talking about it. He’d be like, ‘I don’t have a real job. I don’t need one. I have plenty of money.’ Then he’d wink and you would know.” Pagenstecher (PEG-ehn-steck-er) took orders from adults who led the

teenage lieutenants who helped sell the pot, authorities said. They, too, were arrested, as were seven adults, ages 20 to 58, who allegedly grew the weed under artificial lights in a furniture warehouse and two suburban homes. The task force seized more than 600 marijuana plants with an estimated street value of $3 million, or $5,000 a pound. Investigators also found $6,000 in cash in Pagenstecher’s bedroom. Pagenstecher and his family denied requests for comment, as did his lawyer. Most of his customers attended Mason High and Kings High, two highly ranked public schools some 20 miles outside Cincinnati with lots of high-achieving, college-bound students from neighborhoods filled see next page

From ‘Mousetrap’ to ‘Ballyhoo’ in less than 4 days By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Fresh from a week in which it recorded the highest average attendance in its eightyear history with its production of ‘’The Mousetrap’’, there was no time for the Winnipesaukee Playhouse to rest on its laurels. Shortly after the last member of the audience had left the theater at the Alpenrose Plaza Saturday night members of the tech crew were busy tearing down the old set, removing all of the props and furniture from the stage and by 10:30 that night the

from preceding page with doctors, lawyers and white-collar employees of Procter & Gamble and other major corporations. Burke said Pagenstecher had been dealing drugs since at least 15 and managed to stay under authorities’ radar for a long time by not selling pot at school, but largely out of his home, a two-story, white-brick house on a spacious corner lot where he lived with his single mother and 20-year-old brother. Investigators said they found no evidence Daffney Pagenstecher, a school bus driver, knew what her son was up to. By all accounts, he didn’t throw a lot of money around. He had no fancy car, no fancy clothes, just normal teenage stuff like video games, Burke said. But the task force eventually got wind of what he was doing from informants and other sources last year, and undercover officers bought drugs from him twice, the officer said. “Whenever you have someone in high school selling this kind of volume, it’s going to attract attention sooner or later,” Burke said.

stage was bare, with the set headed back to the theater’s Meredith campus. It was a real late night for Becky Marsh, who was installing the lighting for the next production, “The Last Night of Ballyhoo”, and labored until 3:30 Sunday morning so that the lighting would be in place before work started Sunday on putting up the new set. “Ballyhoo” premiered Wednesday night. Marsh, who is from Wolfeboro and graduated from Connecticut College with a degree in music, says she considers herself lucky to have found the Winnipesaukee Playhouse and to be a part of the tech crew during the summer months. ‘’It’s a lot of fun and it’s the people you work with that make it interesting. There’s always something new,’’ said Marsh as she went up and down a ladder on Monday to do more work on the lighting. Dan Daly, head of the tech crew, said that the set for the new production posed many problems which needed to be dealt with. ‘’It’s a lot bigger than the set for ‘Mousetrap’, and has a second level upstairs balcony which needs to be weight-bearing. The original design didn’t show any support structure so we had to add pillars with two by fours that could carry the weight and then

Courtney Reeves, a high school teacher who grew up down the street, said she did notice a lot of cars coming and going from his house but figured he had a lot of friends. “He honestly was your average high school student,” Philpot said. “At least everyone thought he was your average high school student.” She said she wasn’t surprised Pagenstecher was able to do so much business at Mason. “Any party you go to, you walk in and you’re handed a beer and offered to hit a joint,” she said. “It’s everywhere — football players, basketball players, straight-A students, cheerleaders.” With his arrest, Pagenstecher achieved a sort of celebrity among classmates, Philpot said: “There’s some people who are like, ‘Tyler’s a god. He’s amazing for pulling that off for so long.’”She said Pagenstecher is incredibly smart and always got A’s and B’s but never talked about whether he wanted to go to college. Prosecutor David Fornshell said it is clear that Pagenstecher is highly intelligent, and he hopes the

disguise them so that they looked like a part of the room,’’ said Daly. He said that an escape staircase had to be added at the back of the balcony area so that actors could make their way back to ground level and that the height of the set made it very difficult to deal with the lighting. ‘’The set is 14 feet high and the grids for the light are 14 feet and three inches from the floor. That’s

That provision was initially targeted for elimination, but garnered critical support from Republicans like Charles Grassley of Iowa. Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., engineered the revival of a tax break for builders of NASCAR tracks and other motorsports facilities after it had originally faced the chopping block. He was one of five conservative Republicans who opposed the overall measure, however. Panel members claimed the exercise in legislative sausage making was actually a step forward for tax

not much room to work in,’’ said Daly, who added that another modification had to be made when it was discovered that part of the set covered the hand-pulled fire alarm, which have been a safety code violation. He said that most of the work on the set was actually done last week at the Playhouse’s Meredith campus, where it hopes to move its productions, perhaps as early as next year, and that having a huge storage area at what was the Annalee Dolls museum

deal with in making the transition from one production to the next but over the years the award-winning theater company has learned the importance of good planning and teamwork. He said that two weeks before a new production opens, cast members are already at work learning their lines and getting into the character they’ll be portraying, often times while still performing in the current production. Four of the seven actors in “The Last Night of Ballyhoo” also had roles in Mousetrap, which meant they were doing double duty for the last week and a half,

rehearsing during the day for the new production while performing at night and in one matinee on Monday. ‘’They need time to master the accent and get into the mindset of the character they’re portraying so there’s always a challenge, even for the best professionals,’’ said Halperin. ‘’We try to schedule everything so that there’s time for the tech crew to do their work and enough time for the actors to get familiar with the set. There are 10 scenes in Ballyhoo and a lot of costume changes which makes it a more difficult play from the technical aspect. There are always issues with how things will come together in the short span of time. But the fun part is getting it all together and getting the warm response from the audience when you do,’’ says Halperin. Performances of the Tony Award-winning play “The Last Night of Ballyhoo” continue every day of the week, except Sunday, through Saturday, Aug. 11. The curtain goes up at 7:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday nights and there is a matinee on Monday afternoon at 2. For more information and tickets visit www. or fcall 366-7377.

“That’s better than nothing. But it ain’t anywhere close to where we have to be if we’re going to fix this country,” Coburn said. “You want the pressure jacked up to do tax reform? Don’t renew any extenders,” Coburn said. “That’s how you get tax reform done.” The tax breaks package is advancing even as efforts to prevent the expiration of numerous Bush-era tax cuts have come to an election year impasse over whether to extend the full range of Bush tax cuts or allow expiration of those enjoyed by people earning more than $200,000 a year and couples making more than $250,000. President Barack Obama has demanded that these tax cuts be terminated. The House voted to fully renew the Bush tax cuts on Wednesday. On Thursday, it voted along party lines 232-189 to pass legislation putting the House on record in support of tax reform that would lower the top income tax rate to 25 percent, financed by cleaning out the nation’s loophole-cluttered tax code. The tax reform effort wouldn’t begin until next year.

raise taxes on the middle class while awarding millionaires with disproportionately large tax cuts. To cut the rates so low would require eliminating popular tax breaks like the mortgage interest deduction, they say. “The only way to finance these massive tax cuts for the highest earners is to eliminate or significantly curtail provisions that support the middle class,” said Rep. Sander Levin, D-Mich. The getaway day action on Capitol Hill included: —House passage of disaster assistance to livestock producers reeling from rising feed prices caused by the drought that has hit much of the nation. The Senate, pressing for action on an omnibus farm and food bill, didn’t act on the measure. —A GOP-led filibuster of Senate legislation to protect the U.S. electrical grid, water supplies and other critical industries from cyberattack and electronic espionage. —A unanimous House voice vote to reprimand California Democrat Laura Richardson for forcing her congressional staff to do campaign work and vio-

is a big plus for the theater company. ‘’Most places just throw the old set in the dumpster. We’re able to save the elements and reuse them,’’ says Daly. Daly, who is in his fourth year with the Winni Playhouse, says this year will be his last as he has been accepted in the Theatre Arts program at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, where he will be studying scenic design. Working with him on the set crew are Tonya Free, who grew up in Providence, Rhode Island and moved to Dallas, Texas, where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees in Theater at the University of Texas at Arlington and met Kevin, the love of her life, in summer stock theater. She’s been with the Winni Playhouse for four years and says that learning carpentry skills has been a big part of working on the sets. When the summer is over, she and Kevin will move on to more theater work in other parts of the country. ‘’We’re theater nomads. We move a lot but it’s always exciting,’’ she said. Stephen Bassinger of Houston also holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree, in his case from Texas State University, and said that he enjoys anything that gets him near the stage. ‘’It’s a lot more carpentry than it is poetry. But we manage to get it done on time,’’ says Bassinger. Director Bryan Halperin, one of the Playhouse founders, said there are always logistical issues to

reform because they had summoned the courage to allow almost 20 tax breaks to expire. They included a much-criticized tax credit for ethanol producers. Top panel Republican Orrin Hatch of Utah — a longtime proponent of a popular tax credit for businesses that invest in research and development — said Thursday’s developments represented progress given that the number of tax breaks in the annual “extenders” debate had ballooned from 42 in 1998 to 154 last year. “The tide is turning,” Hatch said. “For the first time in my 21 years on this committee, we are deliberately moving in the opposite direction.” “It’s the first step in a long journey,” said Kent Conrad, D-N.D., though he acknowledged “there is a certain irony” to claiming the renewal of all the tax breaks is a step forward for tax reform. Opponent Tom Coburn, R-Okla., however, calculated that the Senate measure would only save taxpayers about $6 billion — a pittance compared with this year’s expected deficit of $1.2 trillion. He said the panel’s moves were a step backward for hopes of

Judge continues Governors Island Club injunction against homeowner in Laconia; trial would be next step By Gail OBer

LACONIA — A Superior Court judge ruled yesterday that a temporary injunction that stops a Summit Avenue resident and member of the Governors Island Club from building a garage and putting a cottage on top of it will remain in force until the parties go to court and a trial judge decides the case on the facts. Belknap County Superior Court Judge Kenneth McHugh said yesterday that Laconia resident Richard Homsi didn’t provide enough evidence to warrant his lifting of an emergency injunction Judge James O’Neill granted to Governor’s Island Club, Inc. on June 12 to stop Homsi’s construction project. The GIC said Homsi was building a structure that was not approved by its Board of Directors and board approval is required by the restrictive covenant he agreed to when he bought the property and recorded the deed in 1999. The covenant Homsi objects to is the one that says no unconnected structures can be built on a single lot. In layman’s terms, a restrictive covenant is a deed restriction that typically comes with the property and limits what can be done on a piece of property. They are common and typical in private associations or condominium complexes. On Governor Island, most homeowners are members of the association that was formed in 1940 and filed its covenants in 1994. Homsi is one on the few whose property is just over the bridge in Laconia. Among other things, Homsi, through his attorney Patrick Wood, argued that the GIC “selectively enforced its covenants” because there were other free-standing structures on other properties and other properties entered and left CIC at will. Wood also said there was no reciprocal benefit from Homsi’s membership in the club because he has no need for private roads, beaches and club facilities. In a hearing last week, he also argued that he had never gotten the benefit of trash collection, even though he is entitled to it. Atty. Paul Fitzgerald argued the case for Governor’s Island. “Latitude does not exist,” he said,

dismissing Homsi’s argument that the GIC is a voluntary association. He said that before the covenant was recorded in 1994, Wood’s argument was correct and called 1994 a “watershed year” for the GIC. Fitzgerald said that of the 130 lots that are members, the handful of properties that are not members are not because in 1994 not all of those who were eligible “signed on.” He also argued that Homsi registered the deed when he bought the property in 1999 and the deed clearly stated his property was part of the Governors Island Association because the previous landowners joined. “When you record a deed you can’t pick and choose,” he said. “It’s not a voluntary association,” likening the GIC to joining the military. Even if you don’t like it, “you can’t leave.” For the limited purpose of keeping the injunction in place, McHugh sided with the GIC. “While indeed it appears that some members have been released over time, those members are few and far between and are the subject of an individual set of circumstances which the defendant do not parallel,” he wrote. As to selective enforcement, McHugh said the legal remedy for Homsi “is to push the (GIC) to enforce the (covenants), not to allow him to violate it. Two wrongs do not make a right.” Leaving the door open to further litigation, McHugh said selective enforcement may be argued at a trial and whether or not the illustrations Wood provided are persuasive must be decided by the trial court that hears the case. He also said one point Wood made that could favor Homsi at trial was that the enforcement of restrictive covenants is tied to the fact that covenants must be filed when the association is formed. McHugh said in his opinion, the covenants are reasonable and were in place “years before (Homsi) acquired his property.” he also noted that while the “objectionable restriction” of not allowing two unconnected buildings on the same lot was put in place in 1999, the GIC had always had some rules for membership.

SYRIA from page 2 Since he took on the job, Russia and China have twice used their veto power to block strong Western- and Arab-backed action against President Bashar Assad’s regime. The White House said Annan’s resignation highlighted the failure of Russia and China to support action against Assad and called the regime’s continued violence against its own people “disgusting.” “It is impossible for me or anyone to compel the Syrian government and also the opposition to take the steps to bring about the political process,” said Annan, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate and former U.N. secretary general. “You have to understand: As an

envoy, I can’t want peace more than the protagonists, more than the Security Council or the international community for that matter.” Annan singled out the regime for blame for the violence. But he also said the opposition’s increasing militarization had contributed to dooming his six-point peace plan, which included a cease-fire and a Syrian-led political process to end the crisis. “The bloodshed continues, most of all because of the Syrian government’s intransigence, and continuing refusal to implement the six-point plan, and also because of the escalating military campaign of the opposition — all of which is compounded by the disunity see next page

Gabby Douglas win gold for all-around gymnastics performance

LONDON (AP) — Just 14, Gabby Douglas pleaded with her mother to let her move cross country, certain a new coach could help her get to the Olympics. Not two years after setting out on her own, Douglas beat Russia’s Viktoria Komova for the all-around title Thursday night, becoming the third straight U.S. athlete to win gymnastics’ biggest prize and the first African-American to do so. It was her second gold medal of the London Games, coming two nights after she and her “Fierce Five” teammates gave the United States its first Olympic title since 1996. “It feels amazing to be the Olympic champion,” Douglas said. Puts her in a special category, too. Mary Lou Retton, Carly Patterson and Nastia Liukin are the only other Americans to win the Olympic all-around gold. The Americans have been looking for their “next Mary Lou” since she won in 1984, and now they’ve got her in the 16-year-old Douglas. Throw in her adorable “Flying Squirrel” nickname and sweet backstory, and Douglas’ two gold medals certainly won’t be her only riches. “I haven’t thought about that,” Douglas said. “I just wanted to seize the moment. You have to learn how to enjoy the moment.” Her smile alone is enough to dazzle Madison Avenue, and her personality is bigger than she is. She’s even managed to make Oprah Winfrey cry. Douglas had barely gotten off the medals stand when the talk show maven said on Twitter that she was “so THRILLED for Gabby. Flowing happy tears!!” Coach Liang Chow told Douglas the gold was hers after an electrifying floor routine, but she had to wait another five minutes until it was official. That’s because Komova, runner-up at last year’s world championships, was still to come. Komova’s floor routine was impressive, as well. Finished, she stood at the center of the arena staring intently at the scoreboard, fingertips pressed to her lips, teammate Aliya Mustafina rubbing her shoulder. When the final standings flashed, Komova dropped her head and headed to the sidelines, tears falling. Mustafina and Aly Raisman finished with identical scores of 59.566, but the Russian got the bronze on a tiebreak. The lowest scores for both gymnasts were dropped, and the remaining three were totaled. That gave Mustafina a total of 45.933 and Raisman 45.366. “I’m still upset because I could have been gold and I didn’t get it,” said Komova, her silver medal buried in the pocket of her warm-up jacket. Douglas, meanwhile, was grinning ear to ear. Up in the stands, her mother, Natalie Hawkins, embraced her children and then shared a long hug with Missy Parton, whose family took Douglas in after she moved to West Des Moines, Iowa, and now counts her as one of their own. “She inspires me,” Hawkins said, referring to her champion. “To keep it together in that moment when it meant so much says a lot about her.” When Douglas first told her mother she wanted from preceding page of the international community,” he said. “At a time when we need — when the Syrian people desperately need action — there continues to be finger-pointing and name-calling in the Security Council.” U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said he accepted the resignation with deep regret, adding that the search was under way for a successor to Annan, who will stay on until Aug. 31. Diplomacy can succeed only when “the parties to the violence make a firm commitment to dialogue, and when the international community is strongly united in support,” Ban said in a statement. In an opinion piece published by the Financial Times on Thursday under the headline “My Departing Advice on How to Save Syria,” Annan had harsh words for all parties in the conflict. But he appeared to reserve particular criticism for the Assad regime, asserting in his strongest statement to date about the Syrian leader: “It is clear that President Bashar al-Assad must leave office.”

to move to train with Chow, who coached Shawn Johnson, Hawkins was deadset against it. A single mother, she couldn’t uproot her family, and there was no way she was going to allow her youngest child go off by herself. But Douglas’ two older sisters lobbied on her behalf, giving their mother a list of reasons why Gabby should be allowed to move. The only reason

to stay: They would miss her. The move was hard on Douglas, too. Though the Partons treat her like their fifth daughter and are now so close to Hawkins they may as well be related, Douglas missed her family and her dogs. As recently as January, she second-guessed her decision. But she also knew Chow and his wife, Li Zhuang, could get her where she wanted to go.

Michael Phelps back on top with gold in 200 IM LONDON (AP) — Michael Phelps spent the day thinking about all the things he’s doing for the final time at the pool. It turns out that included one last win over Ryan Lochte. Phelps finally got a gold all his own at his final Olympics. Adding to an already unprecedented medal collection, he claimed his first individual victory of the London Games and handed Lochte a double disappointment on his rival’s final night in the pool Thursday. Phelps set the tone right from the start with a dominating butterfly leg to become the first male swimmer to win the same individual event at three straight

Olympics in the 200-meter individual medley. He claimed his 20th career medal — and 16th gold — in 1 minute, 54.27 seconds, just off his winning time in Beijing but still good enough for gold, ahead of Lochte. When it was done, there wasn’t that water-pounding celebration we’ve seen so many times from Phelps — just a slight smile as he hung on the lane rope, gazing up at the stands and soaking it all in. “Going into every call room, I said it’s my last semifinal or my last prelim,” Phelps said, reflecting on a busy day that included a morning swim, then two more races in the evening. “We’re kind of chalking up all the lasts of certain things.”

Twin’s Deduno’s shuts down Red Sox, 5-0 BOSTON (AP) -— Minnesota Twins manager Ron Gardenhire can put up with Samuel Deduno’s wildness as long as the starter keeps limiting opponents to just two hits. The right-hander who spent five years in the minors before reaching the majors allowed two hits for his second straight strong outing and the Twins beat the Boston Red Sox 5-0 on Thursday night. Deduno (3-0) walked four and struck out one in six innings before two relievers combined for three perfect innings. In his previous start, he allowed one run on two hits and five walks in a 12-5 win over Cleveland. Deduno, making his sixth major league start, has given up just two earned runs and 10 hits in 19 1/3 innings Adrian Gonzalez got both Boston hits, a single and double. Casey Fien retired the side in order in the seventh and Glen Perkins pitched two perfect innings for his sixth save in nine opportunities. Deduno overshadowed one of the best performances of Jon Lester’s rough season. Boston’s lefty gave up three runs and seven hits in eight innings

with seven strikeouts and no walks. “I don’t feel like I have thrown the ball that well all year,” he said. Lester (5-9) had allowed 25 runs in his previous four starts but improved in his last one, allowing four runs in six innings. And he was much better on Thursday despite dropping to 0-4 in his last six starts and 2-7 at Fenway Park this season. “Just another one of those hard luck outings,” manager Bobby Valentine said. “He pitched awfully well. 2-0 doesn’t seem insurmountable but it was tonight.” The Twins took a 2-0 lead in the third inning on a single by Dozier, an RBI double by Denard Span and a run-scoring single by Ben Revere that extended his career-best hitting streak to 16 games. They made it 3-0 in the sixth on consecutive doubles by Justin Morneau and Ryan Doumit. Dozier added his third hit of the game and fifth homer of the season, a two-run shot in the ninth off Alfredo Aceves. The Twins won for the fifth time in seven games, while the Red Sox dropped their second straight after winning four in a row.

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Mirrors can only reflect what you show them. Today, the very best mirrors are your friends and family. Show up and interact. Get feedback about recent decisions. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Relationships at home and at work have been frazzled -- and not just by the heat, but by a few hotheads who love to stir up the heat. Turn up your emotional AC, and remember to keep your cool when tempers flare. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A little devil and an angel have taken up permanent residence on your shoulders thanks to a constant temptation. Stop wrestling. It’s time to brush them both off and focus your attention elsewhere. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Workplace confusion has sown a fair amount of stress, but now is the time to cut through the fog of miscommunication. Have that conversation you’ve been putting off, and everyone will soon relax. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’re undaunted by the things that used to make you back away in fear. The heavy responsibilities are also the ones that make you shine the brightest. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (August 3). Your taste and focus change this year, and it’s thrilling to discover what you really want. Out with the old plan, and in with adventure over the next six weeks. October brings romance and creative satisfaction. November offers strong relationships. A group dynamic helps you develop your talents. Aries and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 40, 32, 7 and 18.

by Chad Carpenter

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your friendship skills are exceptional, and you’ll use them well today. You’ll be funny. You’ll listen. And your belief in others will help them grow into the people they want to be. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Though you don’t go around publicly stating that you approve of yourself, it shows. You’ll come across as very comfortable in your own skin, and your actions will be congruent with your inner drive. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You can move forward in good faith. If it turns out to be a more prickly arrangement than you would have liked, this is an opportunity, too. Having grace in a difficult situation will create good karma. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Before you make others walk the plank, remember that you’re the captain of your fate. Take responsibility for recent decisions, and make sure others understand that you’re doing so. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Curiosity might have killed the cat, but when used judiciously, it often saves the day. You’ve been feeling in the dark about certain things. Now is the time to shine the light of your curiosity on them. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Romance is in the air, and you’ve been walking around for far too long under an umbrella of indifference. Put your reserve away, and feel the cool rain of possibility on your cheeks. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Patience doesn’t let you know how patient it’s being. If someone is trying to show you patience while putting emotional pressure on you or rushing you along, this is a lie in action.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, August 3, 2012— Page 23

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, Aug. 3, the 216th day of 2012. There are 150 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Aug. 3, 1492, Christopher Columbus set sail from Palos, Spain, on a voyage that took him to the present-day Americas. On this date: In 1807, former Vice President Aaron Burr went on trial before a federal court in Richmond, Va., charged with treason. (He was acquitted less than a month later.) In 1914, Germany declared war on France at the onset of World War I. In 1921, baseball commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis refused to reinstate the former Chicago White Sox players implicated in the “Black Sox” scandal, despite their acquittals in a jury trial. In 1936, Jesse Owens of the United States won the first of his four gold medals at the Berlin Olympics as he took the 100-meter sprint. In 1943, Gen. George S. Patton slapped a private at an army hospital in Sicily, accusing him of cowardice. (Patton was later ordered by Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower to apologize for this and a second, similar episode.) In 1949, the National Basketball Association was formed as a merger of the Basketball Association of America and the National Basketball League. In 1958, the nuclear-powered submarine USS Nautilus became the first vessel to cross the North Pole underwater. In 1960, the African country of Niger achieved full independence from French rule. In 1966, comedian Lenny Bruce, 40, was found dead in his Los Angeles home. In 1972, the U.S. Senate ratified the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty between the United States and the Soviet Union. In 1981, U.S. air traffic controllers went on strike, despite a warning from President Ronald Reagan they would be fired, which they were. One year ago: Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak denied all charges against him as he went on trial for alleged corruption and complicity in the deaths of protesters who’d helped drive him from power. (Mubarak was later convicted of failing to stop the killing of protesters and was sentenced to life in prison, but was acquitted of the corruption charges.) Today’s Birthdays: Author P.D.

Page 24 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, August 3, 2012


Dear Annie: Many years ago, I suspected my ex-husband of sexually abusing our daughter, “Mary.” There was opportunity and some evidence. I didn’t actually see anything. In and out of denial, I didn’t know what to do, and so I didn’t do anything. But it’s tormented me. Several years ago, Mary told me she believed she was sexually abused as a child, but didn’t know exactly who the perpetrator was. Her details were hazy, but the statements she made about the abuse confirmed my suspicion. Because she was going through a difficult time, I decided to hold off on telling her. That was a big mistake. Mary had just reestablished a relationship with her father after having been estranged for years. Since then, she has read a book on sexual abuse and is trying to fill in the blanks. At her request, I also read the book. Now she feels she knows who it was, but the person she holds responsible could not possibly be the right one. I believe she is having false memories. But she feels she has worked through it and at times seems to be doing well. Other times, she still seems fragile. My question is: Should I tell her the truth about her father or let her continue to believe it was the other guy? I have prayed about this. I believe the right thing to do is to tell her the truth, but I don’t want to hurt her more. We live in different cities, so getting together with her has been difficult. I don’t want to do this over the phone, and I’d rather do it at her place, not mine. Advice? -- Anonymous Dear Anonymous: We recognize that some parents, when faced with the possibility that a spouse is abusing their child, become paralyzed with denial. But this was a terrible betrayal of your daughter. You were supposed to protect her. Please don’t compound your culpability by withholding information because you can’t seem to find the right moment to tell

her. Since you aren’t sure how to approach this, please contact RAINN ( at 1-800-656-HOPE (1-800-656-4673), and ask for help. Today. Dear Annie: My 28-year-old sister has been dating a 36-yearold guy for two years. They have frequent breakups because he’s commitment phobic. A month ago, he finally proposed, and she said yes. Two weeks ago, she was invited to go overseas on a special program. Her fiance doesn’t want her to be away for six months. I suggested she postpone the wedding and that her fiance could visit while she’s there. My mother and sister were both dismissive of that idea. I said, “People who love and care about each other trust each other. Since he’s been postponing the marriage for two years, I doubt another six months would hurt.” My sister was silent, but my mother got mad at me. I think everything I said made sense. Am I wrong? -- New York Brother Dear Brother: Your comments were valid, but that’s irrelevant. This isn’t your decision, and apparently, both your mother and sister think it’s not your business. Your suggestions have been noted. Now, we strongly urge you to stay out of it for your own health and safety. Dear Annie: I saw the poem “The Time Is Now” in your column. My singing partner, Ed, and I learned it from a recording by the great Oklahoma bluegrass duo Delia Bell and Bill Grant. Wanting to include it on our own CD, we researched and learned that the late, great Nashville songwriter Harlan Howard wrote the song and released it in 1978 under the title “Love Me Now.” It is our most requested song during bluegrass jam sessions. -- Peg Chase, Parma, Idaho Dear Peg Chase: Thanks for the research. We are delighted to give credit where it’s due.
