MEREDITH — A local woman who was severely injured in a head-on collision on Rte. 104 Thursday morning was later flown by a DART medical helicopter to
Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon. A spokesperson at Dartmouth-Hitchcock said that no condition report was available as Mary Ellen Robertson’s name was not on the list of those whose medical informa-
tion could be released. Meredith Police said that Robertson, who lives in Meredith, was driving west on Rte. 104 near Upper New Hampton Road at about 8:50 a.m. in a 2000 Toyota RAV4 when it was struck head-on by a 2007
Ford F-150 pickup truck driven by William Wentzell of Holderness, which was headed east and had veered into the opposite lane. Police Chief Kevin Morrow said that Wentzell had apparsee CRASH page 15

10-year-old Maine girl charged in infant’s death
PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — A 10-year-old girl was charged Thursday with manslaughter in the death of an infant whose mother said had ingested medication and been suffocated. The girl, who is not being identified, is the youngest person to be charged with manslaughter in Maine in at least 25 years. The infant, Brooklyn FossGreenaway, of Clinton in central Maine, had been left overnight with an adult baby sitter in nearby Fairfield. The sitter called police early July 8 to report that the infant was not breathing, authorities said. Emergency workers who arrived minutes later reported that child was unresponsive. The death of any child under age 3 triggers an automatic investigation in Maine, and detectives uncovered some “troubling signs” before the state medical examiner declared the death a homicide, said Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety. The death was declared a homicide Wednesday, but investisee INFANT page 17

Pentagon considering legal action against SEAL author WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon’s top lawyer on Thursday informed the former Navy SEAL who wrote a forthcoming book describing details of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden that he violated agreements to not divulge military secrets and that as a result the Pentagon is considering taking legal action against him. The general counsel of the Defense Department, Jeh Johnson, wrote in a letter transmitted to the author that he had signed two nondisclosure agreements
with the Navy in 2007 that obliged him to “never divulge” classified information. “This commitment remains in force even after you left the active duty Navy,” Johnson wrote. He said Bissonnette left active duty “on or about April 20, 2012,” which was nearly one year after the May 2011 raid. By signing the agreements, Bissonnette acknowledged his awareness, Johnson wrote, that “disclosure of classified information constitutes a violation of federal criminal law.” He said it also obliged the
author to submit his manuscript for a security review by the government before it was published. The Pentagon has said the manuscript was not submitted for review, although it obtained a copy last week. Johnson said that after reviewing a copy of the book, “No Easy Day,” the Pentagon concluded that the author is in “material breach and violation” of the agreements. The book is to be published next week by Penguin Group (USA)’s Dutton imprint. The see SEAL page 11
LIBERTY, Texas (AP) — A man convicted of participating in the repeated group sexual assault of an 11-year-old Texas girl was sentenced Thursday to 99 years in prison — but he wasn’t in court to face his fate. As the verdict and sentence were read in the Southeast Texas courtroom, authorities were searching for Eric McGowen, who fled a day earlier after the victim tearfully testified
about the attacks. Prosecutors say the girl was sexually assaulted on at least five occasions from mid-September through early December of 2010 by 20 men and boys from her town, Cleveland, which is about 45 miles northeast of Houston. McGowen was free on bail at the time he disappeared, so authorities say a security detail was not required to watch or follow him. The Liberty County Sheriff’s Office
has declined to release any details about the search for McGowen, other than to say that he is believed to be armed and dangerous. His disappearance was the latest twist in a case that has divided the town of Cleveland, both because of the horrific allegations and suggestions from some residents that the girl was partly responsible because of her appearance. Police began see TEXAS page 15
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — A former University of Virginia lacrosse player who killed his ex-girlfriend in a drunken rage received a 23-year prison sentence Thursday in a case that forever changed the school’s attitudes toward relationship violence and made it easier for abuse victims in the state to obtain
restraining orders. George W. Huguely V had three years trimmed from a jury’s recommended sentence of 26 years for the May 2010 slaying of Yeardley Love. Huguely, 24, could be released in less than 20 years. “Unlike Ms. Love, Mr. Huguely still has the majority of his life ahead of him,” Char-
lottesville Circuit Judge Edward Hogshire told the court. Asked by the judge if he wanted to address the court before sentencing, a shackled and tearful Huguely turned to Love’s mother, Sharon Love, and sister Lexie and said, “I’m so sorry for your loss see VIRGINIA page 16

Accepting GOP nomination, Romney promises 12M jobs TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Mitt Romney launched his fall campaign for the White House Thursday night with a rousing, remarkably personal speech to the Republican National convention and a prime-time TV audience, proclaiming that America needs “jobs, lots of jobs” and promising to create 12 million of them in perilous economic times. “Now is the time to restore the promise of America,” Romney declared to a nation struggling with 8.3 percent unemployment and the slowest economic recovery in decades. Often viewed as a distant politician, he made a press-the-flesh entrance into the hall, walking slowly down one of the convention aisles and shaking hands with dozens of delegates. The hall erupted in cheers when he reached the stage and waved to his shouting, chanting supporters before beginning to speak. “I accept your nomination for president,” he said, to a roar of approval. Then he pivoted into personal details of family life, recounting his youth as a Mormon, the son of parents devoted to one another, then a married man with five rambunctious sons. He choked up at least twice, including when he recalled how he and wife Ann would awake to find “a pile of kids asleep in our room.” He was unstinting in his criticism of President Barack Obama, his Democratic quarry in a close and uncertain race for the White House, and drew cheers when he vowed to repeal Obama’s signature health care law. “This president can tell us it was someone else’s fault. This president can tell us that the next four years he’ll get it right. But this president cannot tell us that you are better off today than when he took office,” Romney declared. Clint Eastwood, legendary Hollywood tough guy, put the case for ousting Obama plainly moments before Romney made his entrance. “When somebody does not do the job, you’ve got to let ‘em go,” he said to the cheers
of thousands in the packed convention hall. The speech over, Romney was joined by running mate Paul Ryan, then their wives, and finally a stage full of their children and grandchildren. Confetti and thousands of red, white and blue balloons floated down from the rafters. They joined popular gospel singer BeBe Winans on “America the Beautiful.” Beyond the heartfelt personal testimonials and political hoopla, the evening marked one of a very few opportunities any presidential challenger is granted to appeal to millions of voters in a single night. The two-month campaign to come includes other big moments — principally a series of one-on-one debates with Democrat Obama — in a race for the White House that has been close for months. In excess of $500 million has been spent on campaign television commercials so far, almost all of it in the battleground states of Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, New Hampshire, Ohio, Iowa, Colorado and Nevada. Romney holds a fundraising advantage over Obama, and his high command hopes to expand the electoral map soon if post-convention polls in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and perhaps elsewhere indicate it’s worth the investment. Romney was often almost gentle in his criticism of Obama. “I wish President Obama had succeeded because I want America to succeed,” he said. “But his promises gave way to disappointment and division.” “This isn’t something we have to accept ,” he said, appealing to millions of voters who say they are disappointed in the president yet haven’t yet decided to cast their votes for his Republican challenger. “Now is the moment when we can stand up and say, ‘I’m an American. I make my destiny. And we deserve better! My children deserve better! My family deserves better! My country deserves better!” Romney’s remarks came on a night when other speakers filled out a week-long portrait of the GOP
Space is Limited
nominee as a man of family and faith, savior of the 2002 Winter Olympics, savvy and successful in business, yet careful with a buck. A portion of the convention stage was rebuilt overnight so he would appear surrounded by delegates rather than speaking from a distance, an attempt to soften his image as a sometimes-stiff and distant candidate. “He shoveled snow and raked leaves for the elderly. He took down tables and swept floors at church dinners,” said Grant Bennett, describing Romney’s volunteer work as an unpaid lay clergy leader in the Mormon church. Following him to the podium, Ted and Pat Oparowski tenderly recalled how Romney befriended their 14-year-old son David as he was dying of cancer. “We will be ever grateful to Mitt for his love and concern,” she said simply. Shouts of “USA, USA” echoed in the convention hall as several Olympic medal winners came on stage, a reminder of Romney stepping in to help rescue the faltering 2002 Olympic Games in Salt Lake City. In an evening that blended the political and the personal, delegates saw a video in which his sons poked fun at him. “I can’t explain love,” Romney said. As for Obama, Romney said, “Many Americans have given up on this president, but they haven’t ever thought about giving up. Not on themselves, Not on each other. And not on America.” The economy is issue No. 1 in the race for the White House, and Romney presented his credentials as the man better equipped than the president to help create jobs. Speaker after speaker testified to the help their received from Bain Capital, the private equity firm that he created — and that Democrats argue often took over companies, loaded them down with debt and then walked away with huge fees as bankruptcy approached. “When I told him about Staples, he really got see ROMNEY page 10

Romney’s advantage: Obama offers more of same TAMPA — The Republicans who are assembled here have been told time and time again that Barack Obama’s great advantage over Mitt Romney is likability. And many of the 15,000 or so journalists who endured the gusts of rain on Monday and groaned in the sun on the 1.5-mile walk from the nearest parking lot to the metal detectors outside the convention press center have been writing and soundbiting that the chief task of the Romney campaign is to introduce Romney’s personal background and character to the public to improve his favorability ratings. Both talking points are true, but only (in an old journalistic phrase) up to a point. The latest ABC/Washington Post poll, for example, reported that when asked which of the two candidates was more likable, 61-percent picked Obama and only 27-percent said Romney. That looks like a huge advantage. But when you look at what pollsters call their favorable/ unfavorables, the contrast is much less distinct. Obama’s balance in the Real Clear Politics average of recent polls is 49-percent favorable, 45-percent unfavorable. Romney’s are 43-percent favorable, 43-percent unfavorable. Weaker, but not a whole lot. A successful convention could put Romney’s numbers up around Obama’s, or higher — just Team Obama’s campaigning seems to have weighed his down. As for likability, it’s more important in some elections than in others. Bob Grady, who worked on George H.W. Bush’s 1988 campaign, tells how Bush turned a deficit going into the conventions into a lead in the polls. Focus groups tested the response to speeches by Bush and his opponent, Michael Dukakis. Dukakis came out ahead. But when the focus groups were shown a generic TV newscaster type reading the two texts, the Bush message was the winner. Conclusion: Use the convention to show some of Bush’s human qualities — increase his likability. But put the emphasis on a sharp-edged contrast between how the candidates stand on the issues. My sense is that the Romney campaign managers are taking a similar approach. They seem confident that the $12- million the Obama forces have spent attacking Romney’s business record have not had much effect. Obama’s lead over Romney in the RCP average on the first full day of the convention was 47 to 46-percent. They have not spent much time showing Rom-
ney’s human side this summer, and they clearly want the convention to do some of that. They were fretting over the broadcast networks’ decision not to broadcast Monday’s night session and rescheduled Ann Romney’s speech from Tuesday even before the hurricane threat scotched Monday night altogether. There will be testimony Thursday night from witnesses of Romney’s work in his church and at the Salt Lake City Olympics. And of course the acceptance speech from Romney himself. But as uberblogger Mickey Kaus suggests, lightly committed voters may not be as interested as they were a decade or two ago in having a president they are comfortable watching five nights a week on television. That’s because fewer people are watching TV so regularly. The folks at Targeted Victory, a firm doing microtargeting for Romney and Republicans, told me they teamed with a Democratic firm to conduct surveys of TV viewing in two ultra target states, Ohio and Florida. They found that 31-percent of respondents no longer watch live TV at all, except for sports events. They watch cable or satellite, or use TiVo or Hulu to watch movies with commercials. News audiences seem tilted to older voters, who tend to have strongly held preferences. So it’s not clear how many people will be watching Romney. Convention ratings were pretty good in 2008, but a recent survey shows less interest. In any case, the Romney people seem confident that he can meet the threshold test of likability and, more important, that the differences between Romney and Obama over issues and over their basic attitudes toward America worked to the Republicans’ advantage. There’s lots of evidence to support this second proposition. Voters are most concerned about the related issues of the economy and the size of government. They are discontented with the status quo. In 1988, it was the other way around: Voters were basically content. Bush offered more of the same and won. This year, people want something different. Romney offers that. Obama offers more of the same. Emphasizing that contrast, the Romney people believe, is a winner.

LETTERS I come from family that believes in doing good for community To the editor, Bob Greemore is one of my opponents in the race for one of the House seats representing Meredith and Gilford. His last two letters to the editor demand a response. Bob’s support for the Wicwas Grange (“Our Wicwas Lake Grange”) is in no way related to his position as a state representative. The Grange’s mission, according to the national website, is “dedicated to preserving vibrant and competitive hometowns where their citizens have access to the same quality education, health care and technologies as their urban counterparts.” Additionally, the Grange is “committed to an issue-based grassroots mechanism which allows us to support civic leaders based on policy rather than local politics.” It is gratifying to see the resurgence of activity at the Wicwas Grange. Unfortunately, my application for membership, as a Meredith Center resident who lives on Lake Wicwas, has yet to be acted on. The tone of Bob’s latest letter (“Fix the roads”) disturbs me for many reasons. I think auto industry workers in Detroit and elsewhere would take issue with his contention that the federal government “props up poorly run
businesses”? I know students whose student loan interest rates would have doubled had President Obama not stepped in would take issue with his insinuation that the federal government has chosen to “take from our children’s future and burden them with great expense.” And I am positive that students in the N.H. university system whose tuition is going up as a result of the 50-percent cut in state support wish he would find proof of his assertion that “university chancellors and staff .. don’t teach, only spend” and not take his anger out on them. I come from a family that believes in doing good for your community, your neighbors and your society. In my hometown, both the hospital and the library bear my family’s name. We believe in the adage, “a hand up, not a hand out.” Policymakers in this state need to make tough choices but not mean spirited ones. Democrats, Independents and Republicans need to work together to identify the essential services this state must provide and then identify the funding sources to meet these needs. I welcome that challenge. Kate Miller Meredith
LR Flag Football League has given my 8-year-old conﬁdence To the editor, Please find below a letter our Lakes Region Flag Football League received from one of our parents recently: “My 8-year-old son will be starting his fourth season with Lakes Region Flag Football! This is huge for him as he has Asperger’s (autism) and I never thought he’d participate in any sport or activity. When he started he was a quiet, shy boy who lacked confidence in himself and couldn’t run. He watched at first and with some coaxing from an awesome coach in just one hour he LOVED the game! All the people in LRFFL are family friendly. Bob is the best! He goes out of his way and remembers every child’s name, their parents names and siblings! He greets everyone at every game. and he is truly genuine. The coaching staff are awesome with the kids. One in particular, James, has made a “world” of difference for my son. One of the very first things he taught his
NOT about one person. We all work together and if one of our team members needs help, we will all help him. If one of you makes a mistake, it’s perfectly okay, that’s how we learn, by our mistakes. It does not matter if we win or lose. It matters if we played our best and had fun and learned.’ James has given my son the confidence to play. Noah, my son, now pulls flags, makes plays, hikes and even RUNS, sometimes with the ball! Coach never gave up on Noah and never let Noah give up. So, even though we have a league where I live we choose to travel a half hour to Meredith because Lakes Region Flag Football League is MORE than just a league. They are family friendly and truly care about us and having fun while learning. They have become our friends and football family. THANK YOU LRFFL for all you do!” Lakes Region Flag Football League Meredith

LETTERS Why do ‘I built it’ folks run for government protection when they fail? To the editor, I have been thinking about the economic mess we’re in, and have arrived at a few limited conclusions... actually, questions, I suppose. So what’s new? They are just contemplative, at this juncture, but are beginning to coalesce...slowly, like a tropical storm soon to become a hurricane. If business is bad, why are we looking so hard at government for the answers.... or focusing upon it, federal government, as the problem? Is it because when people fail, there’s an inherent need to lay the blame elsewhere? If business is bad, why aren’t the businesses themselves... the folks of the entrepreneurial spirit we hear so much about — “who built it themselves” — fixing their own problems? Why the myopic focus on the feds? Those who built it, own it, ought fix it.... just like we do when the roof’s leaking, or the sill’s rotten. Why is this independent streak only when their profitability continues, but when they experience a downturn, it’s the fault of “big government” and the need for tax reform? Our American car manufacturers were set to fail in 2008... was this because the government was too big and taxes too hefty... or was it because for the last decade, the foreign car manufacturers have been outpacing the American brands... in product placement, style, price and efficiency? Why is it, that after the bailout, the big three suddenly began to spit out vehicles that were more energy efficient (slightly) and actually looked sleek and classy, like their foreign competitors? I guess,
what I am asking here is, did our car companies fail (to the tune of hundreds of billions) because they were the victims of big government, over regulation and federal spending? Or did they fail, because they lost the competition to foreigners? Aren’t car companies among the crowd of folks who “built it” by themselves... and if so, why did they get (and take) the government welfare that was passed with bi-partisan support? Was it because “corporations are people”, and deserve public relief just like other welfare recipients? How about the bailout to the banks, and AIG — the organizations that were too big to fail? Was that the end result of over regulation? Strange brew, it would seem to me: to engage in risky loans and investments, skirt the law, and then complain of over regulation by the federal government, while accepting billions in federal dollars. Doesn’t this put them on, what Condi Rice calls, “the government dole?” I hear all sorts of talk about how small businesses are the “engine” of our economy... even though almost all of them fail within a year or three — many of them going out of business eagerly seeking the protections of the bankruptcy code and legal corporate structures, leaving them with lessened personal accountability. When someone builds a business — all by their lonesome — shouldn’t they ignore the protections of federal law that allow them to risk, fail, and then skate out on their creditors? It seems to me that the American entrepreneurial spirit... no, the simple ethics
of business... would call for people to honor their debts, and not hide behind the protections of the federal “regulations” they so abhor. So much more “corporate” welfare, in just another form. It seems hypocritical. If somebody, decides that a small town needs another eatery among a dozen others in a small resort town, and then finds that when summer’s over, so is their business... is it the government’s fault? Or just the result of a poor business plan? How about all the untold number of real estate investors who lost their shirts in the real estate “market correction?” Can they blame it on the size of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, or Freddie Mac, or the fact that we give too much
in foreign aid to the nation of Zambia? Or, was it just a risky business... buying and flipping... and they found themselves walking like lemmings over the cliff. Is this about gambling and greed, or the growth of government? The economic mess we’re in — is the president’s fault, whether his name is Clinton, Bush or Obama? Is it big government to blame? Or, is it big government to blame, and big government to the rescue? Maybe what we’ve been calling the “great recession” is just a gigantic market correction, from which we’ll emerge despite ourselves, and not because of anything we, or government, does. It makes my head spin. Bruce Van Derven Bristol
Ovide will introduce real reforms to our educational system To the editor, I recently attended a house party for Ovide Lamontage, where he discussed many of the issues facing our state. I liked what I heard him say. Ovide pledged to oppose any broadbased tax and to keep spending low and keep budgets balanced. In order to make us the most pro-business, pro-family state in the union, Ovide will reform our business tax code, allow workers to choose whether or not to join a union, and cut red tape that inhibits job growth. On education, Ovide will introduce real reforms to our educational system, such as school choice, while promoting partnerships among our businesses and educational institutions so that the course work is liked
to the needs of employers. Ovide is the only candidate with experience in the health care field and recognizes this is an area of tremendous cos and concern for families and business. He will fight for a free-market, statebased and patient-centered health care system to meet our citizen’s needs — not one size fits all federal takeover. Ovide is an outdoorsman and advocate for protecting our 2nd amendment rights. I encourage you to visit www. ovide2012.com for more information. On September 11, please join me in voting for Ovide Lamontagne for governor. Bernadette Gallant Gilmanton Iron Works

To the editor, If you are a New Hampshire resident, your vote for governor should be based on one question: “Which candidate is most committed to keeping the Northern Pass power line out of our state?” The answer is clear. KEVIN SMITH. He has stepped up and is solidly committed to lead the fight against Northern Pass. In my lifetime, I’ve not seen a bigger threat to the state of New Hampshire. From the North Country down, along the corridor from Groveton to Deerfield, you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone in favor of Northern Pass — with the exception of Franklin, where the converter terminal will be built. Unfortunately, there are many New Hampshire residents who have no opinion, as they have little knowledge of the proposed power line. Those in the southern part of the state are hearing only about promises of jobs and revenue. The jobs promised are questionable, as the towers are being built in Canada, and likely being installed by Hydro Quebec. Project revenues will be going directly to the
power companies. All you really need to know is that if the Northern Pass power line is built, you will see massive, 100-135 foot, steel towers, connected by multiple cables, running pretty much like a four-lane highway, all the way down the state, from Pittsburg to Deerfield — passing through some of our most pristine vistas, including the White Mountain National Forest. These towers are built for expansion — they will only get bigger. All this desecration to our state, for power that New Hampshire does not need, and will not receive. We are merely the route for the power line to travel to southern New England. Learn more about this project. Look at all the negatives. You’ll be amazed the project has gotten this far. Join the battle against Northern Pass. Vote in the upcoming primary on September 11th, for Kevin Smith for governor. This is not a party vote — this is a vote for New Hampshire. New Hampshire does not want Northern Pass. Brad Thompson Gilford
What’s city going to do to prevent voter intimidation on Sept. 11? To the editor, An open letter to Laconia City Clerk Mary Reynolds: As I understand it you are responsible for the whole voting process in the City of Laconia. I have two questions for you: QUESTION #1: Is it true that the voting laws have been changed in the state of New Hampshire? Is a voter ID now required? If true, what does this mean to us voters that have been using the past practice of showing up at the polls and voting using only the city checklist? A right guaranteed to us by the United States Constitution! Isn’t this new requirement voter suppression? QUESTION #2: A new practice has been implimented by the Republication Tea Party to suppress the vote “at the polls” during voting on election day. A group called TRUE THE
VOTE (www.truethevote.org) has been organized to suppress the vote through intimidation. My question, have you taken steps to prevent this type of suppression on voting day? Do you have extra poll workers to help with both the “ID” problem and this new intimidation tactic? Will there be a uniformed policeman posted in the voting poll locations throughout Laconia on election day? Will you conduct a training program for poll workers as to how to handle irregularities? This Tuesday, November 6, 2012, election is important to the well being of our democracy. With the massive voter suppression activities by the Republican Party nationwide special precautions are needed! Will you ensure the Laconia public that our voting system will work? Dr. Thomas Dawson Laconia
Were’s biblical support for taking from the poor to give to the rich? To the editor, The “far right” of the Republican Party are staunch supporters of the Paul Ryan budget plan. Mitt Romney will follow the plan even if he doesn’t believe in it. Because he wants to be president, he will do what the far right wants him to do. In July, the “Nuns on the Bus” traveled through many states pointing out the devastating effects of the budget
plan if it is passed. Sister Simone said that “...every church, house of worship, synagogue and mosque will be required to add another $50,000 in their budgets to make up for the plunge in food stamp support.” The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has also stated its opposition to the budget cuts. “The Nuns on the Bus” received support from Catholics, see next page

LETTERS You comfortable giving this Legislature free hand with health care? To the editor, Much has been made of the possible dire effects of the Affordable Care Act, but there is a more sinister alternative being proposed. Legislation to enable states to jointly opt out of all federal health care rules. Let’s see how that would work. Once the legislation is approved by a group of states, the compact so called, would have to be ratified by Congress and signed by the president. After that is accomplished the compact states would receive block grants set at the 2010 FY level. In future years funding would grow, but it would grow at a pace set by a formula keyed to inflation. That is, not related to the perceived cost of delivery. Most of us have seen real cost of health care out-pace inflation rates by a wide margin lately. Now, let’s step back and have a look at that setup. If there is a gap between the grant amount and the needs of the program where is the additional funding going to come from? I can see three possible sources. The state legislature could make up the difference, providers could take smaller fees for service or the insured parties could be required to increase their contribution in the form of higher premiums or bigger co-pay
amounts. Another, more draconian alternative would be to ration certain types of non life-threatening care such as health screenings, physical exams and routine blood work. Given the attitude of the current majority in our state legislative branch, are you comfortable with giving them a free hand with your health care? This piece of legislation would, potentially, eliminate or jeopardize all federal protections and benefits currently guaranteed . That would include federal oversight. As written, the bill does not provide any details for how the states might administer their programs. Details about how residents will access coverage or, perhaps, be denied coverage are missing from the bills language. In conclusion, this legislation is long on grabbing control and short on the definition of benefits and costs to the users. Aside from that, I can smell a potential tax wafting this way in the wake of the plan envisioned by HB-1560. Although it is pushed by the Paul Ryan vision of our future, is it really something equal to or better than the Affordable Care Act? Bill Dawson Northfield
I’m Representative Harry Accornero and this is what I stand for To the editor, To the voters of Laconia and Belmont: For the past year and half it has been an honor for me to represent the City of Laconia as their State Representative. This year as you know the state has undergone redistricting. I have chosen to run as the Republican Candidate for District 9, representing Laconia and Belmont. I would like to let you know what I stand for. — I am a social and fiscal conservative. — I support Right-to-Work. — I will work to return the Department of Motor Vehicle Department to Belknap County. — I am pro-life. — I support quality education for all
students. — I oppose any form of income or sales tax. — I believe we need to reduce the size of state government from the top down. — I support family values and parental notification. — I support the 2nd Amendment. I look forward to meeting as many of you as I can. If you would like to speak to me, I would be happy to meet with you and any of your friends and neighbors who would like to know more about me. You can also call me at 387-9708. Or visit my website at www. harryaccornero.com. Rep. Harry Accornero Laconia
from preceding page Lutherans, Jews and many others for the feelings expressed for social justice. There were many expressed views showing solidarity with the nuns. It is a very difficult task to find Biblical support for taking from the poor to give to the rich. If the budget
plan was aimed at reducing the deficit, then it would not include tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans. This is just plain wrong. I join the many supporters who come from many faiths in support of the nuns and the teachings of Catholic social justice. Paul Bonneville Lochmere

LETTERS If you favor radical policies of this past Legislature, I’m not your man To the editor, I am running for a third term in the New Hampshire State Legislature because of my desire to sensibly deal with the issues of critical concern to the people of Southern Belknap county and the state. In social issues, I am personally and religiously very conservative, but as a public representative I have consistently supported the right of people to choose their own path even if it pains me to see them making what I believe are wrong personal decisions which may cause them and society pain in the future. I believe in and advocate traditional family values, but I do not believe that the power of government should be used to enforce my values on those who do not share my belief system. I have been criticized for having a low score from a group representing the extreme right wing of my party. I am very proud of that score. It indicates that I have stood up against efforts to radically change many of the basic foundations of the healthy systems of laws, developed over the years. This has made our state one of the best and balanced states in the union in the area of low taxes, personal freedom, employment, low crime rate, education and compassion for our neighbors, who are elderly, disabled and poor. I will continue to seek the efficient use of tax dollars and encourage private-public partnerships that can achieve our common goals without picking winners and losers. Some people may seek to paint me with different false brushes, because I am not one who is comfortable with
bumper sticker answers to complex issues. The truth is that in my 45 year career as pastor of medium sized churches, I have been a very fiscally responsible manger of other people’s money, while creatvely advancing the growth and health of the organization. This mindset has continued since I entered the political arena, as I have sought to achieve productive results with limited government funds combined with volunteer involvement and private sector contribution. My active involvement with the Alton Food Pantry, The Town Beach Project, the B&M Railroad park and trail and the expansion of the Pearson Road Community and Senior Center have all relied on overwhelming private sector contributions of time and money combined with government assistance. In general, I believe that government should create or respond to opportunities where an environment can be created where non-profits and private individuals can work together to improve and support a vital, healthy community. If you favor the radical policies and atmosphere of this past legislature, I am not your man. But if want a legislature which seeks to address the complex issues before us with respect and honest dialogue and seeks to preserve the New Hampshire system that Has stood us well over the years, I would appreciate your vote for the Republican Nomination as Representative of Belknap District #8 (Alton, Barnstead and Gilmanton) on Tuesday, September 11. Rep. Peter Bolster Alton

To the editor, Wow, political events are unfolding at a breakneck pace and it’s hard to keep up with them. We have naked congressmen swimming, dumb congressmen saying rape pregnancy’s are rare, VP Biden stirring up racial hatreds, letter writers saying things like how Roosevelt used his economics to end the Great Depression and another saying that taking seven hundred, sixteen billion out of Medicare will make care to seniors stronger. Where to begin? How about the most glaring error first. Roosevelt’s economic policy’s didn’t end the Great Depression WWII did. “Hell of a way to end a depression”, my father once told me. (Smartest man I ever knew.) Naked swimming and dumb statements are just distractions but stirring racial hatred is as low as a politician can get. I have to refer the last to my fellow seniors. Does anyone now or soon to be on Medicare really
believe taking several hundred billion out of a program will make it better? That money will, by law, be dumped into ObamaCare, which will cover the entire U.S. population and around 15-million illegal aliens. So, seniors, do you really get warm fuzzy feelings of trust from this idea? Well, yeah, those progressive liberal Democrats tell you it will. Really and truly, cross their hearts. But you know if taking several hundred billion out of Medicare would make it better doesn’t it stand to reason that doing the same to other programs and departments would also benefit from this wisdom? So why aren’t Obama and company taking such amounts out of say, education programs, energy programs, social service programs for just a couple examples? Because it will not. That money was for we elderly, not the general public. Ten thousand baby boomers per day are retiring and Obama and the Democrats could care less. ObamaCare is all about power

from preceding page and control, not caring about we seniors. Taking that kind of money from our program will hurt us there can be no argument about it. On Nov. 6th tell Obama we are old, not stupid. Vote him into retirement. Speaking of that, have readers seen the latest edition of Newsweek? The cover reads, “Hit the Road Barack”. Quite a change for a liberal magazine. Inside it reads, “Why does Paul Ryan scare the president so much? Because Obama has broken his promises, and it’s clear that the GOP ticket’s path to prosperity is our only hope.” Newsseek said it folks. Steve Earle Hill
side of the road would raise significant safety concerns for anyone pulling in and out of a driveway where visibility would be blocked by parked cars, passengers from vehicles parking there would be trespassing on our front yards which they already do since there’s no room for pedestrians. The blaring radios and slamming doors at all hours of the day/night have already disrupted the peace and enjoyment of our properties. This idea would be the worst thing imaginable for Shore Drive residents aside from when the town erroneously claimed our beach in the 1990s and took away our private docks, rafts, beach and moorings. The town spent over $250,000 of taxpayer dollars to seize the beach from Shore Drive owners, but if the beach were returned to these owners who all had deeds “to the shores of Newfound Lake” this could generate revenue of about $54,000 per year! With 1,800 feet of shorefront x $1,500 per foot waterfront equals $2.7-million in property valuations. Times that by the tax rate of $20.17 and that could mean a HUGE influx of cash to the town which could LOWER everyone else’s property taxes. I suggest that the town return the Shore Drive beach to its original owners, change the parking spaces to an extension of the bike/walking path and collect the tax revenue. The street will be safer for pedestrians and motorists, and about 300 feet of the beach on Shore Drive would still be accessible to the public near the Big Catch Restaurant. If you are in favor of this, e-mail RETURNBEACH@YAHOO. COM to join our growing list of interested residents. While everyone enjoys this beach, we believe that most people would not want to keep a beach that originally belonged to private owners and was mistakenly or improperly obtained, especially when they have two other beaches in town with more amenities. And since most owners on Shore Drive have year-round friends in Bristol, they will just be parking in our driveways instead of on the road. We need to prevent any more encroachment on our properties at the foot of the lake. Our information is that the town does NOT own the road, they have a prescriptive easement, (it was a private dirt road, part of a 100-acre farm that over time became a “highway” but was never purchased and no property owners were ever paid for the loss of land) and the state/town used up most of their easement when they widened the road in the 1940s and 1980s. We plan on determining if the town even has the right to collect parking fees on a road they don’t own. Sadly but not surprising, we heard that the town allegedly “lost” $3,000 of the beach parking day pass fees they collected last year, so it seems unproductive to collect revenue that somehow “disappears.” We hope this letter will reach more people and help to set the record straight because these type of false accusations do nothing but create unnecessary illwill and discord within our community. Perhaps we need some new selectmen who are not so jaded, bitter and/or biased to represent us all in the future who will promote goodwill and treat everyone fairly from hereon out. Is that too much to ask? Kevin Henderson Shore Drive, Bristol

To the editor, After watching the video of the Bristol Selectmen’s meeting on July 16, I am outraged by the utterly false, negative, and inflammatory comments made by the selectmen regarding residents on Shore Drive. While discussing whether to continue to sell beach parking day passes to nonresidents, Selectman Jeff Shackett suggested that the parking be moved to the right side of the road which would encroach on our properties. The illogical reasoning behind this apparent retaliatory suggestion is because Shackett stated that “residents who live across the street move their cars over to the beach in the morning as soon as they wake up and move them back in their driveways when the sun goes down.” Rick Alpers says “It’s awful, they ALL move their cars over every morning. It’s disgusting.” Oddly, the selectman ALL agreed to continue to sell day passes for $5 to any NONresident because “it’s revenue.” If their main complaint is there isn’t enough parking on Shore Drive for Bristol residents, then stop selling those spaces to nonresidents since it was never intended to be a state beach. Nonresidents can go to Wellington State beach in Bristol. The selectmen admitted the Cummings Beach parking lot is NEVER full so residents can go there also. Why create such a “circus” on our street? It’s treacherous for pedestrians due to the parking with cars pulling in and out, bicycles flying down the road in both directions, no sidewalks, so the public trespasses on our front yards to avoid collisions. The video is at http://vimeo.com/45878448 and on the town’s website http://www.townofbristolnh.org/. This appears to another example of retaliation which we have endured for years for defending our rights regarding taxes, beach rights, etc. These on-air claims are completely untrue for most of the Shore Drive residents but are a despicable means to publicly villainize all of us and promote ill will towards summer residents. Of the 23 cottages in Silver Shores Association, only two owners purchased a beach sticker but have not used them, so NONE of these owners are parking on Shore Drive. While beach stickers give us the right to park on the road, most of us only do so when moving boats in and out of our driveways, waiting for septic service, etc. so to say that we ALL do this every day is an outright lie. Many of us allow year-round residents to park in OUR driveways so we HELP provide parking for Bristol residents! Moving the parking to our

LETTERS You’ll never take what’s in my heart by stealing a political sign To the editor, Recently people from our area have been shredding and stealing political signs from personal property and along our roads. This act is considered a crime in many jurisdictions and it just doesn’t’ make sense. Someone who takes the time to put a sign on their lawn or to vote for the persons they choose do so because they’ve taken the time to learn about them. You can’t remove what is in someone’s heart by merely ripping a sign up or stealing them. We believe in our choices and will vote for them on September 11 in the primary and again on November 6th the general election no matter how many signs are stolen or destroyed. So take a moment
to clear your head before you commit another crime and fill it with knowledge instead. Knowledge is powerful; being a bully is weak and childish. I support Mitt Romney for president, Ovide Lamontagne for governor, and generally the Republican Party because I’ve done the research and feel that these are the people I want to lead my country and my state. Think about it and possibly turn that destructive energy around and become a volunteer or an advocate for the people you believe in so you can feel as if you are part of the solution. There is no law against that! Elena Ball Gilmanton Iron Works
No evidence that raising a teacher’s salary will improve results To the editor, Bill Dawson of Northfield can knock himself silly if it makes him feel better trying to smear me. Education at large refuses to accept ANY CRITIQUE no matter the messenger or the quality of the message. Education knows only one response, attack, demonize, discredit and point fingers at OTHERS. Such unprofessional smear attacks prove conclusively the built in, constant CONFLICT OF INTEREST teaches have between reward and results. Educations, uninterrupted 40-year record of failure both academically and economically speaks for itself by the simplest analysis even an IDIOT could understand. Since 1970 we have about DOUBLED the number of TAXPAYER PAID employees in public education in America. The majority as TEACHERS and aides. We have RAISED their wages and benefits FASTER than almost any occupation in America, more than TRIPLING public educations cost over that period. What have we have gotten in return for the TRILLIONS in American treasure? NOTHING, NADA, ZIP, CIPHER, GOOSE EGG — except stagnation in reading and math skills, outright decline in science all on a macro basis tied to graduation rates that peeked decades ago. International, comparative test-
ing confirms this continual decline against other countries. The ONLY people who have personally benefited form this transfer of trillions in wealth from taxpayers are teachers and the academic community. IF THAT IS NOT THE FACE OF COMPLETE FAILURE, I ask what the hell is? Teachers do not want the trillion dollar tax payer funded freight train to STOP. (Obama keeps promising on the stump to keep the train running). It BUYS the vote of almost every teacher in America. I call it sleeping with a political figure for money. Others call it HOOKING, the oldest profession in the world. No matter that there is not ONE, SINGLE SHRED of EVIDENCE that raising the salary of any teacher (or tripling it) YESTERDAY or tomorrow or adding 100 teachers in any school has worked or will change the failed result we have gotten from following that path. That is the ONE SOLUTION for 40 straight years that has not worked. It has produced NOTHING except gigantic cost increases to educate every student in America while REDUCING the living standards of the middle class who bear the majority of the cost to PAY FOR IT. The status quo and and the failure teaching has produced is going to be see next page

ROMNEY from page 3 excited at the idea of saving a few cents on paper clips,” businessman Tom Stemberg said of the office supply store chain he founded with backing from Bain. There was no shortage of Obamabashing, though. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, sharing the stage with his wife, Callista, said Obama was a president in the Jimmy Carter mold. Both “took our nation down a path that in four years weakened America’s confidence in itself and our hope for a better future,” he said. Romney’ offered no new information on what has so far been a shorton-details pledge to reduce federal deficits and create 12 million jobs in a country where unemployment stands at 8.3 percent. Romney would have to nearly double the current, anemic pace of job growth to achieve 12 million jobs over four years. That’s conceivable in a healthy economy. Moody’s Analytics, a financial research operation, expects nearly that many jobs to return in
four years no matter who occupies the White House, absent further economic setbacks. Romney’s steps for achieving the employment growth include deficit cuts that he has not spelled out and a march toward energy independence that past presidents have promised but never delivered. He has called for extension of tax cuts due to expire at all income levels at the end of the year, and an additional 20 percent across the board cut in rates. But he has yet to sketch which tax breaks he will eliminate or cut to prevent deficits from rising. Nor has he been forthcoming about where to make the trillions in spending cuts needed to redeem his pledge of major deficit reduction, or about his promise to rein in Medicare or other government benefit programs before they go broke. Ryan, the chairman of the House Budget Committee, has called for remaking Medicare into a program in which the government would send seniors checks to be used to purchase health care insurance.

Youssef will open campaign office in Franklin on Tuesday but will skip candidate’s forum up the street FRANKLIN — Republican District 7 Senatorial candidate Josh Youssef said he will be opening a Franklin Victory Office at 406 Center Street and holding a party on the same night as the scheduled Franklin candidates night — an event he does not plan to attend. Youssef’s party will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. and the candidates night, is scheduled for the Franklin Opera House — also on Center Street - from 7 to 9 p.m. The Youssef campaign said yesterday that Youssef will not appear at the candidates night because Franklin Mayor Ken Merrifield, the scheduled moderator, is one of opponent Bill Grimm’s biggest supporters. His campaign also said that Grimm declined to appear on Niel Young’s The Advocates radio program on WEZS-AM in Laconia so Youssef “won’t be attending Franklin candidates night.” Aside from the private house party in Franklin to
which the media was not invited, the two have never met in the same forum. When Grimm spoke at the Belknap County Republican’s monthly meeting in Belmont, Youssef said he was unable to attend and asked Young to speak on his behalf. With the primary less than two weeks away, it is becoming increasingly unlikely that any of the residents of District 7, which is comprised of Laconia, Gilford, Franklin, Belmont, Northfield, Canterbury, Salisbury, Webster, Boscawen and Andover, will see either Grimm or Youssef face off in the same forum. Franklin candidates night is standard fare for candidates who run for office in the city. What’s different is this is the first time that Laconia and Franklin have been in the same state senate district. The winner of the Tuesday, Sept. 11 Republican primary will face Laconia Democrat Andrew Hosmer in the general election. — Gail Ober
SEAL from page 2 Associated Press purchased a copy Tuesday. Johnson addressed his letter to Mr. “Mark Owen,” using quotation marks to signify that that this is the author’s pseudonym. His real name is Matt Bissonnette. Bissonnette referred requests for comment about the letter to his publisher, which was not immediately available. “I write to formally advise you of your material breach and violation of your agreements, and to inform you that the department is considering pursuing against you, and all those acting in concert
with you, all remedies legally available to us in light of this situation,” Johnson wrote. The Pentagon has not revealed how it got a copy of the book. Johnson noted that “copies of the book have apparently already been released.” He added, “further public dissemination of your book will aggravate your breach and violation of your agreements.” The Pentagon did not release copies of the nondisclosure agreements that it said Bissonnette had signed in 2007.
from preceding page turned on its head over the next few years. Unions are going to be dismantled from education in many places. It is already happening, it will spread with UNIONS HOWLING, teeth gnashing and lives threatened. Tens of thousands of parents are now REFUSING to send their kids to public school, hell holes of repeated academic failure. Parents demand CHOICE (from failure) to pick something BETTER for their kids. When parents get that CHOICE they put their kids in charter schools or private schools instantly. Such schools offer far more fertile environments academically and often cost FAR LESS per student. Getting our kids A BETTER DEAL than
the FAILED status quo education wants to keep in place no matter the tidal wave of failed children left in it’s wake will be the fight of ALL FIGHTS. You saw the hate in Wisconsin and the endless millions unions are willing to throw at keeping educations failed status quo in place. Bill Dawson represents the perfect example of the stone walling, obfuscation, smearing, brick throwing and blame tossing from academia to keep the broken record of declining achievement tied to astronomical costs BOLTED IN PLACE by unions.

Witness says scooter driver was passing on the right when struck by truck on Union Avenue LACONIA — The operator of a scooter was transported to Lakes Region General Hospital on Thursday after he was struck by a box truck on Union Ave. at about 4:45 p.m. A police report stated that the scooter operator, 37 year-old Joel Biron of 51 Elm Street, sustained nonlife threatening injuries. Todd Boucher, 37, also of Laconia, was driving the truck. Alisha Jacobs, who lives on Union Avenue, said she was outside checking her mail box and witnessed the collision. The truck, whch had LRGHealthcare
painted on its doors, was traveling northbound on Union Avenue and slowed to turn right onto Spring Street, she said. “The moped passed on the right,” said Jacobs, and was struck by the turning truck. “The guy went flying off the moped and rolled a few times,” Jacobs added. According to the police report, several witnessed corroborated Jacobs’s account of the collision. Officer Kendra Neri said Biron was conscious when transported. — Adam Drapcho
FRIENDS from page one the Friends, whose son Travis is following in the footsteps of brother Cody who graduated in 2009, as a sophomore linebacker, welcomed the opportunity to support the capital campaign. Carlene Roy, whose three sons Mark, Rod and James played for Fitzgerald and remain involved in the youth and high school football programs, was a charter member of the booster club, continues to participate in the Friends and, with grandchildren growing up, expects to be involved for years to come. These women have loyally and enthusiastically supported the program during and after their own sons played and look forward to the completion of the new facility that will enrich the tradition of excellence to which they have contributed so much. The proposed athletic facility upgrade is planned to coincide with the reconstruction of the Huot Regional Technical Education Center and the renovation of the high school, both of which are
underway. The $16.8-million project will include a 32,000-square-foot addition to the high school and new science labs. Already several local businesses have made large contributions. The new playing field will be known as Bank of New Hampshire Stadium in honor of its $250,000 gift. The culinary arts program, replete with a the restaurant open to the public in new addition, will bear the name of Meredith Village Savings Bank in return for its $100,000 donation to the project. The Irwin Automotive Group contributed $50,000 and Irwin Marine $25,000 But, to raise the full $1-million needed, the capital campaign component is turning to the community for donations in various amounts, all with the assurance that each contributor will be commemorated. The entrance to the stadium will be lined with brick and granite pavers, each bearing a name or message of a donor.There will be 1,000 brick pavers see next page

‘Irish Spring’ keeping deer away from lettuce at farm GILFORD — Beans and Greens Farmstand is rejoicing in its recent success in keeping lettucemunching deer away from its fields. After losing over 6,000 heads of lettuce to a roaming herd of deer earlier this summer, the lettuce crop is now doing well thanks to hundreds of bars of Irish Spring deodorant soap which has been placed around the fields. ‘’It seems to be working. Last week for the first time in six weeks we had our own lettuce. It’s keeping them away a little bit, but I’m still worried about the pumpkin crop,’’ says Andy Howe, Beans and Greens owner. He said that the farmstand was deluged with suggestions for keeping the deer away after a story about the deer problem appeared in The Daily Sun a few weeks ago. ‘’We got all kinds of phone calls from all over the place from people offering suggestions on how to
keep the deer away. We’d never heard about using soap. But we put Irish Spring all over the place and it’s holding them off for now.’’ He said that after receiving permission from the state Fish and Game Department two deer were taken down earlier this summer, but the rest of the herd continued to show up. ‘’We still have guys hunting for us who have deer tags from the USDA if they start coming back into the fields.’’ said Howe. He said that he and his wife, Martina, had used every possible way they could think of to discourage the deer from coming into their fields, including electric fencing with flagging tape, animal urine and commercial deer repellents. None of those worked. ‘’We’re really grateful to all those people who gave us ideas for dealing with this problem and the kind of support they showed for us,’’ said Howe. — Roger Amsden
Laconia man indicted for drug sales & gun possession LACONIA — A Belknap County grand jury has indicted a local man on several counts of drug possession and one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. Abram Tappan, 34, of 1233 Meredith Center Road was indicted for felony possession of oxycodone with the intent to distribute; one felony count of possession of clonazepam; one felony count of possession of alprazolam; one felony count of possession of zolpidem; and one misdemeanor count of marijuana possession. He is also charged with one felony count of being in possession of a firearm — a Forehand Arms revolver. All of the above offenses are said to have occurred in September of 2011. According to Belknap County Sheriff Sgt. Bill Wright, the most recent indictments were triggered by a parole violation in September of 2011. Wright said Tappan’s parole officer found drugs and the gun during a routine parole check and turned the criminal investigation over the Sheriff’s
Department. He said Tappan was returned to prison on a parole violation and the drugs were sent the state lab for analysis. Once the Sheriff’s Department had the results from the laboratory, they went to the county attorney who went forward with last week’s indictments. On October 9, 2009, Tappan pleaded guilty in Belknap County Superior Court to one felony count possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute. Judge Bruce Mohl sentenced him to serve 1 1/2 to 3 years in prison stand committed. According court records record, Tappan was on parole when he was arrested on July 2, 2009 by Laconia Police and charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. In 2007 court records show Tappan pleaded guilty to being in a felon in possession of a gun and drug violations. He was sentenced by a judge in Merrimack County Superior Court to seven years and one month in state prison. — Gail Ober
CONWAY (AP) — Police have made an arrest in a shooting in the New Hampshire town of Conway. Police on Thursday arrested 31-year-old Eugene W. Menard of Conway on a charge of attempted murder. Authorities say they first learned about the shooting after a man came into a hospital emergency room early Thursday with a gunshot wound to the groin. The injuries appeared to be non-life-threatening. Menard is also facing charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm and violating his bail. Police say more charges are possible. Investigators believe the shooting happened in a parking lot of the Conway Shopping Center on White Mountain Highway.

CRASH from page one ently overcorrected after first coming into contact with a 2009 Toyota Tundra pickup truck which was driven by Matthew Dillon of Claremont. The police department press release on the incident did not say in which direction Dillon’s truck was headed but the vehicle was parked on the eastbound lane shoulder about 100 yards back up the highway from the accident scene. Wentzell suffered minor leg injuries in the accident and Dillon was not injured.
The force of the collision shattered the front end and windshield of Robertson’s vehicle and took off the front tire on the driver’s side of the pickup truck. A side panel from her vehicle was impaled in the truck’s front tire. There were no skid marks at the point of the collision. Route 104 was closed to traffic for about two hours and traffic rerouted until the accident scene was cleared. Police said that the accident is still under investigation.

That’s very interesting,” MacLeod said. Meanwhile, he’s been able to watch as the chicks began to first venture out of the nest, then explore the surrounding region and try their luck at fishing for their own food. He hopes that “Chip” and “Jill” will beat the odds and both survive the migration. If they do, they’ll
spend two years maturing in South America, then return to New Hampshire to try and establish a territory and find a mate. “That will be fascinating to see,” said MacLeod. “That’s the perfect scenario, you get all the information you can get.” Until that can happen, though, they have an epic ordeal to endure. MacLeod will be watching, as much like a fretting parent as a curious scientist. “These are birds I’ve followed, you get to know them,” he said, especially “Art,” who he’s observed for years. “He’s like an old friend.”
TEXAS from page 2 investigating after one of the girl’s classmates told a teacher he saw video of her being sexually assaulted in an abandoned trailer. Prosecutors’ case against McGowen included a videotaped confession and testimony from nearly a dozen witnesses, including the girl, who is now 13. Defense attorneys did not present any witnesses or evidence. Jurors were swift in their decisions. They deliberated for just 20 minutes before finding him guilty of aggravated sexual assault of a child. Then, after brief testimony in the punishment phase, they decided his sentence in less than 30 minutes. Most of the jurors declined to comment afterward. The jury foreman made a brief statement as bailiffs led jurors from the courtroom. “The state did their job. The evidence was overwhelming,” said the foreman, who declined to give his name while being escorted out a back door Neither the girl nor her family were in the courtroom when the jury’s decisions were announced; McGowen’s relatives also were not present. The Associated Press could not reach the girl’s mother for comment, but family friend Brenda Myers relayed comments from her. Myers said the girl’s mom said that while she was glad the trial was over, she was upset that McGowen was still on the
run and was concerned for the safety of the girl and her three other children. Myers runs a youth center in Cleveland and knew the girl before the assaults. The girl was placed in foster care after police began investigating the sexual assaults, but it’s unclear where she lives now. McGowen was the first defendant to stand trial in the case. All six of the juveniles and two of the 14 adults charged have pleaded guilty. McGowen faced a minimum sentence of 25 years prison and a maximum of life. Prosecutor Joe Warren said he doesn’t believe that the jury’s conviction and sentence were lessened by McGowen not being in the courtroom. However, McGowen’s defense attorney, Matthew Poston, said his client’s decision to flee in the middle of the trial “absolutely affected” the jury’s decision to convict. Poston said he didn’t know where McGowen is now. McGowen was present Wednesday when the girl told jurors about an encounter in October 2010 and one the following month in which she said McGowen and several other men and boys took turns sexually assaulting her while recording the encounters on video. The girl, who testified using a pseudonym, briefly broke down in tears as jurors were shown a few minutes of video of the alleged sexual assault in October 2010.

Tilton will hire civilian to write parking tickets By Gail OBer
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
TILTON — Selectmen have authorized Police Chief Robert Cormier to hire a temporary part-time traffic control officer to enforce parking and other violations, primarily in the downtown. Selectman’s Chair Pat Consentino said the parttime hire will be on a trial basis. If the program is successful, she said the next step would be to include the part-time position in the Police Department’s 2013 budget and have it go through the town’s budget process. “Hopefully the revenue will take care of the wages,” she said, noting the 20 hours a week would be paid at a rate of $12 an hour. Consentino said downtown parking has been an issue long before she ever came to office as a selectman. “We have very limited parking and we want to encourage people to come to downtown Tilton and shop in our local stores,” she said. The town has gradual parking ticket scale, said Consentino. For the first offense it is a $25 fine and for the second offense it is $50. Any parking offenses beyond two and the car will be towed.
Consentino said parking is not the only issue faced by downtown merchants. She said skateboarding and bicycle riding on downtown sidewalks is also an issue that will be addressed by police through the parking control officer. She said the money will come from the part-time line in the Police Department budget and though the position will be civilian, the employee will report to Chief Cormier and his supervisory staff. Lt. Ryan Martin said Wednesday that the Police Department is unable to adequately police downtown parking because they are temporarily shortstaffed and are tied up with criminal matters. “We think this is a way to provide the service that the Main Street merchants have asked from us,” he said. He said the major complaints stem from people exceeding the two hour limit and parking in the municipal-only parking spaces. He said he believes the area is adequately and clearly posted. Martin said yesterday any interested candidates need not be police officers but should have good driving records, legible handwriting and clerical skills and be able to pass a criminal background check.
Improvements to Corner Meeting House on Monday agenda BELMONT — The town’s building inspector has recommended some safety improvements to the Corner Meeting House that include placing a roof over the entrance of the town’s general assistance director to catch snow and ice as it falls from the roof. Building Inspector Steven Paquin said the new roof should be twice as large as the door way for the most protection. In addition, he recommended a direct visual link camera be installed director’s office and either the Police Department or Belmont Town Hall. Paquin said the camera should not have audio so as to protect the confidentiality of the discussions.
As to repairs to the upper level handicap ramp. He suggested a portion of a newly constructed ramp should have a dual pitch that would allow runoff to flow toward the road and not into the foundations. The above recommendations are on the agenda for Tuesday’s selectman’s meeting that will begin at 5 p.m. Town Administrator Jeanne Beaudin said Thursday that she would also be presenting a Church Street bridge update. The bridge was closed by selectmen last week after being told the by the Department of Transportation that it was unsafe. — Gail Ober
VIRGINIA from page 2 and I hope you find peace.” Huguely, of Chevy Chase, Md., was convicted in February of the second-degree murder of Love, 22, of Cockeysville, Md., a Baltimore suburb. Jurors also found Huguely guilty of grand larceny for stealing Love’s computer from her apartment. Huguely and Love, both seniors and varsity lacrosse players at U.Va., had a volatile relationship that spiraled into Huguely’s deadly confrontation with Love late on the night of May 2, 2010, after a day of heavy drinking and golfing by Huguely. Love was found the next morning, her battered face in a blood-soaked pillow. During a 3 1/2-hour sentencing hearing, prosecutor
David Chapman presented witnesses who described violent incidents involving Huguely before he killed Love. They included the beating of a friend who went home with Love after a party and the unprovoked punching of another person after a night of drinking. He also angrily wrapped his hands around a young woman in a bar after she told her father, his former high school lacrosse coach, to talk to Huguely about his heavy drinking. “Sooner or later he was going to seriously injure or kill someone,” Chapman said. Huguely’s attorneys acknowledged he drank too much, but Chapman disagreed that was the problem. “The issue, your honor, is not too much alcohol,” he told Hogshire. “The issue here is too much violence.”

S ANBORN ’ S A UTO R EPAIR “Where the customer is always number one”
“Plastforum” editor Jon Hermansen, right, of Norway makes some notes as he visits with Sally McGarry of Boulia-Gorrell Lumber Company in Laconia for an article for the Scandinavian plastics industry trade magazine. (Alan MacRae/for The Laconia Daily Sun)
Boulia-Gorrell’s Sally McGarry featured in magazine article she can’t read; it’s in Norwegian LACONIA — With the climate which New Englanders and many Norwegians experience being so much alike, one might think there would be a corresponding similarity in home building materials. But that is not the case, which is why a Norwegian magazine which reports on the plastics industry recently carried an illustrated article on the use of vinyl siding which featured Laconia’s Boulia-Gorrell Lumber Co. The article was written by Jon Hermansen, editor of Plastforum magazine, and a lifelong friend of Alan MacRae of Belmont. While visiting MacRae earlier this year Hermansen said he was interested in doing a story on how it was that vinyl siding had become so popular in the U.S. but had yet to catch on in Norway. MacRae, who had grown up with Sally McGarry, the treasurer and general manager of Boulia-Gorrell arranged for Hermansen to interview her for the article. Although Norway sits much further north than New England, the effects of the Gulf Stream mean that its weather — both summer and winter — is quite similar. But while vinyl siding now accounts for one-third of exterior cladding on new and existing homes, according to ThisOldHouse.com, very few Norwegian homes have it.
McGarry told Hermansen that homeowners who choose vinyl do so because it costs less than traditional wood siding materials. For example, while cedar costs around $1.20 per linear foot, the cost for vinyl siding is closer to 72 cents per square foot. Besides the difference in cost for the siding itself, vinyl siding costs much less to install and it requires minimal maintenance. Painting is basically unnecessary and vinyl can be cleaned easily with a pressure-wash in the spring, McGarry noted. While noting the cost and maintenance advantages that vinyl siding offers, McGarry said after the Plastforum article appeared that a large percentage of Boulia-Gorrell customers still prefer wood shingles or wood clapboards because they believe its natural look gives a house a better appearance. This is especially true for older homes which lose their historic appeal when their original siding is covered. Norwegians are loath to go the vinyl siding route because, like vinyl siding detractors in this country, they do not want to wrap their homes in plastic. Vebjorn Ljosa, a computer scientist who comes from Norway and now works and lives in the Boston area, posted a note on the home improvement website stakechange.com stating, “... in Scandinavia vinyl siding is considered cheap and tacky ... my dad told me that my house (in the Boston suburb of Maynard, Mass.) looks like a yogurt cup.”
INFANT from page one gators withheld further details on the cause of death. Brooklyn’s mother, Nicole “Nicki” Greenaway, of Clinton, said the 10-year-old was the sitter’s daughter. Authorities told her the baby had ingested medication to treat attention-deficit disorder and been suffocated, she said, adding that she also saw bruises on her daughter’s body. “I feel a little bit of relief that they’re charging her daughter at this point, but the mom really needs to be responsible. She’s the one I left my daughter with,” Greenaway said. The 10-year-old girl was already in the custody of the Maine Department of Health and Human Services when a summons was delivered to her attorney on Thursday, McCausland said. Police declined to identify the girl, who is due in juvenile court in October. Her attorney didn’t immediately return a call from The Associated Press. Greenaway said that the 10-year-old had changed her baby’s diaper in the past, but that she had told the sitter an
adult needed to be present at all times. Instead, the infant, who was reportedly fussy that night, was sleeping in a portable crib in the same room as the 10-year-old, Greenaway said. When Greenaway finally saw her daughter at a funeral home, the infant had a black eye, bruises on the bridge of her nose and marks that looked like fingerprints on her cheeks, she said. McCausland said he couldn’t comment on whether charges could be brought against the sitter. A person who answered the phone at a listing for her said Thursday evening that she was not available. The AP is not naming the sitter because it could make the juvenile suspect’s identity known. The charge against the 10-year-old was filed after detectives consulted with the attorney general’s office, which determined manslaughter was most appropriate, said Brenda Kielty, a spokeswoman. Unlike murder, which generally involves an intentional act, manslaughter charges are brought when a homicide is caused by reckless actions or criminal negligence.

This initiative will celebrate the birth of a baby, providing the families of newborns within Belmont, Gilford, Laconia and Meredith with a tote filled with gifts as well as valuable parenting information, safety items for the home, books to promote literacy, and a community resource directory. Beginning in late fall, a pair of volunteers will deliver totes during short one-time visits, intended to provide families with information on programs and services in the community. Those who have interest in becoming a volunteer to make visits to families or are interested in donating items for the totes, can contact Erin Klasen at 581-1577 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Lakes Region Community Services is a not-for profit comprehensive family support agency.

MEREDITH — Retirement planning specialist and financial expert David Kutcher of DAK Financial Group, LLC is a featured contributor on the national business news site FoxBusiness. com. Since founding DAK Financial Group, LLC over 20 years ago, Kutcher has been helping New Hampshire residents plan their financial futures successfully. Assisting business owners, preretirees, and retirees with financial management and planning, Kutcher’s advice is now available to people nationwide. Kutcher’s article, “Income...Invest Wisely: Worst Time for Seniors in the Last Ten Years,” highlights the importance of investing long-term in products
that don’t gamble with investor money. “Seniors are more affected by declining interest rates than any other group, since many of them depend on income from investments. Some retirees still have a heavy reliance on CDs and Treasury Securities. These rates are now the lowest in more than 10 years. If investors keep depending on these sources, they may continue to find their income declining. This can only lead to personal financial disaster – living expenses keep increasing, while income decreases.’’ ‘Contributing to Fox is a great opportunity for DAK Financial to help more people across the nation plan safer retirements. If I can save one person from outliving their money or losing their retirement savings, I’m happy,” says Kutcher. DAK Financial Group, LLC is a mainstay in the Meredith community, helping New Hampshire residents plan safe and successful retirement. Specializing in retirement, long-term care, life insurance, and estate planning, the DAK Financial team is located at 169 Daniel Webster Highway in Meredith.

Great Rotary Ice Fishing Derby moves to all-cash prizes, reduces pressure on Lake Winnipesaukee MEREDITH — The Meredith Rotary Club has announced that the Great Meredith Rotary Ice Fishing Derby for 2013 will be enhanced to provide all cash prizes for the winning fishermen. A new prize structure will enable fishemen to win the top prize with the capture of the largest fish in the seven available categories. The derby is scheduled for February, 9-10, 2013. “We conducted a survey of our database of participants from prior years and then consulted with the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department and our judges. The result is a new prize structure that opens the chances of big prizes to more fishermen. Now fishermen who catch the largest white perch, yellow perch, cusk, pickerel, black crappie, lake trout, and rainbow trout all have an equal chance at the big prizes. Moreover,” continued Jim Nagle, Chairman of the 2013 Derby, “since fish from any New Hampshire lake are eligible for a prize, we are reducing pressure on Lake Winnipesaukee. This will reduce the impact on the lake’s off-season salmon. “By moving to all cash prizes, we are much more in line with the desires of our fishermen as expressed in our survey. The first through fifth fish boarded in each category (white perch, yellow perch, cusk, pickerel, black crappie, lake trout and rainbow trout) each day will win cash prizes of $250 (heaviest) to $50. The anglers with the top fish in each category for Saturday and Sunday will now be eligible for the top three cash prizes,” Nagle said. Late breaking information is always available on the Meredith Rotary Club website, and online sales of Derby tickets will be available through the website (www.meredithrotary.org) beginning October 1, 2012. The all cash prize structure and new Derby Rules will be included in the Derby brochure which will be mailed to people listed in the club’s database in October, and will also be highlighted on the website beginning September 10, 2012.
Autumn in the Lakes Region highlighted by Yankee Magazine LACONIA — Amy Landers, Executive Director of the Lakes Region Tourism Association announced that the popular Yankee Magazine will feature the Lakes Region of New Hampshire with stories on the autumn glory of the region. The cover photo shows a beautiful fall scene overlooking Lake Waukewan and inside provides a tour through the heart of New Hampshire by Yankee writer William Scheller and photographs by Rob Bossi. The issue is packed full of autumn scenes which include some well-known locations such as the Manor on Golden Pond and a more isolated view from an old road off Route 171 in the Moultonborough area. “We are so honored to have Yankee Magazine help us show and inform everyone about the incredible place that we are lucky enough to call home!”, states Landers. “Many people think of the Lakes Region in New Hampshire as a summer destination, which is certainly is, but there’s truly nothing like an autumn day touring our lakes and mountains!” The September/October Yankee Magazine issue became available on August 28. The Lakes Region Tourism Association recently unveiled its new brand identity as it marked 75 years of service in guiding tourists throughout the region.

By Holiday Mathis something luxurious in your surroundings. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your emphasis on self-discipline borders on the superstitious, mostly because you realize the stellar impact supportive habits have on your destiny. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll take an unexpected journey. Where you wind up looks almost nothing like the image you started out with in your mind, and yet there are some striking similarities. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You won’t be in the mood to leave anything to chance. Even your accidents are planned out. These strategic actions are adding up to a pretty exciting future. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Inflexible goals impede new possibilities, and you don’t want to limit your options that way. Stay open to where life leads. When you go to bed tonight, you’ll feel good about the way you grew through the day. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Time is an equalizer: Everyone gets the same amount in a day. You plot your hours carefully now, realizing there are barely enough for all you want to accomplish. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 31). You’re motivated not only to make a living, but also to make a difference. This drive to do good in the world guides key decisions through the end of the year. January brings aesthetic changes to your domestic environment. Those you teach will celebrate you in March. You’ll have extra money in December and May. Pisces and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 30, 41, 9 and 49.
by Chad Carpenter
ARIES (March 21-April 19). As the artist of your destiny, you won’t be using the usual brushes and paints. You’ll have to be more conceptual, making a lovely pattern by arranging disparate pieces. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you have to work really hard at being happy, the effort pretty much guarantees an unsuccessful result. Instead, accept where you are and explore it. Honesty brings contentment. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Avoid hopping on board for coaching, information products, business systems, new and improved methods, transformational treatments and the like. Today, chances are, you just don’t need it. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your success occurs for a very simple reason: You do what you say you’re going to do. You are a powerful person because your word is gold, especially your word to yourself. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When you are as open-minded as you are right now, something that could be called a failure could also be called a success, and both terms are equally accurate descriptions. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Luckily, knowing who you are and what you want to do with your life is (SET ITAL) not (END ITAL) a prerequisite for operating successfully in the world. Because you’re uncertain, you’re also open-minded. More options will become available to you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Functional surroundings could be sending the wrong message about you. You suddenly care about being seen as powerful. The power position includes

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, Aug. 31, the 244th day of 2012. There are 122 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Aug. 31, A.D. 12, Caligula, who was Roman Emperor from A.D. 37 to A.D. 41, was born. On this date: In 1886, an earthquake with an estimated magnitude of 7.3 devastated Charleston, S.C., killing at least 60 people, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. In 1954, Hurricane Carol hit the northeastern Atlantic states; Connecticut, Rhode Island and part of Massachusetts bore the brunt of the storm, which resulted in nearly 70 deaths. In 1972, at the Munich Summer Olympics, American swimmer Mark Spitz won his fourth and fifth gold medals, in the 100-meter butterfly and 800-meter freestyle relay; Soviet gymnast Olga Korbut won gold medals in floor exercise and the balance beam. In 1980, Poland’s Solidarity labor movement was born with an agreement signed in Gdansk (guh-DANSK’) that ended a 17-day-old strike. In 1986, 82 people were killed when an Aeromexico jetliner and a small private plane collided over Cerritos, Calif. The Soviet passenger ship Admiral Nakhimov collided with a merchant vessel in the Black Sea, causing both to sink; up to 448 people reportedly died. In 1987, the Michael Jackson album “Bad” was released by Epic Records. In 1991, Uzbekistan (ooz-bek-ih-STAHN’) and Kyrgyzstan (keer-gih-STAHN’) declared their independence, raising to ten the number of republics seeking to secede from the Soviet Union. In 1992, white separatist Randy Weaver surrendered to authorities in Naples, Idaho, ending an 11-day siege by federal agents that had claimed the lives of Weaver’s wife, son and a deputy U.S. marshal. In 1997, Prince Charles brought Princess Diana home for the last time, escorting the body of his former wife to a Britain that was shocked, grief-stricken and angered by her death in a Paris traffic accident hours earlier. One year ago: The Wartime Contracting Commission issued a report saying the U.S. had lost billions of dollars to waste and fraud in Iraq and Afghanistan and stood to repeat that in future wars without big changes in how the government awarded and managed contracts for battlefield support and reconstruction projects.

Page 24 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, August 31, 2012
Dear Annie: We are three daughters who need help. Our parents’ home seems unhappy and full of bitterness. Mom and Dad have been married for 59 years, but Mom doesn’t seem to enjoy life. Dad is not perfect, but we really don’t know their past personal stories and relationship. They seem to have led separate lives: Mom at home with six kids to raise, and Dad working long hours at his business. Since Dad’s retirement, they have settled into a routine of doctor appointments and staying home. Dad no longer wants to do anything, because Mom is constantly telling him that he doesn’t do things correctly. He embarrasses her. Dad has no interest in going places due to his health issues, and Mom doesn’t want him driving much or staying home alone. The constant nagging has created an unhealthy environment. It is difficult to visit because we don’t like to see and hear them like this. We have sat down with them to discuss the situation and offered suggestions, but there has been neither change nor resolution. Counseling is not an option, as Mom seems overly concerned with what others know about her or will think of her. Dad doesn’t seem to be concerned about anything. We don’t want to become the kind of kids who stop seeing their parents. Any suggestions? -- The Girls Dear Girls: When couples retire, they can fall into the trap of doing nothing and getting on each other’s nerves. Mom resents Dad invading her domestic domain, and Dad is depressed because his identity was tied up in his job. And if they have health issues, it can exacerbate the problem because getting out of the house can be problematic or exhausting. It’s a shame your parents won’t address their problems, particularly if they are depressed. We recommend you find ways to get them out of the house, together or separately. Take them out for dinner. Invite Mom
to a play. Encourage Dad to attend a ballgame with you. Look into senior programs in their area, and perhaps offer to go with them until they become interested enough to go on their own and, hopefully, make friends. Please don’t give up on them. They need you. Dear Annie: I’m 13 and live with my mom. She always overreacts when my room is not absolutely spotless, which leaves me wondering whether she has OCD. She doesn’t seem to care that the rest of the house is a mess. She seems to magnify the messiness of my room only. When I confront her about this, she gets mad and sends me to my room. I think she wants me to be holed up in there so I’ll see how messy it is. But I don’t. Does she have OCD? How would I know? Help me. -- My Room Is Clean Dear Room: If your mom is only concerned with the mess in your room, it’s probably not OCD. It’s more likely that your room is a little messy. Mom sounds stressed. If you find yourself arguing with her a lot, please consider that the two of you may be pushing each other’s buttons more than you intend. Try talking to her when you are both calm. Explain that you don’t want to fight. Ask how to make things better. If it doesn’t help, please discuss it with your school counselor. Dear Annie: This is in response to “Single Too Long,” the 45-year-old gentleman who is having problems meeting women who have never been married and don’t have children. I would like to mention No Kidding (nokidding.net), an international “social club” for adults, single or married, who never have parented and don’t wish to. Not everyone wants kids, and many of us are surrounded by others constantly trying to change our minds. No Kidding is not a dating site. It’s just a place for people without kids to meet like-minded others. -- California

At previous meetings, there has been discussion of the hazards which have
impacted the town in the past or could impact it in the future. There has also been discussion of the town’s critical facilities, resources, and existing plans & policies for mitigating the impact of hazards. For more information visit the town’s Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee website http://www.moultonborough.org. or call Chief David Bengtson, Moultonborough Fire Chief and Emergency Management Director at 476-5658 or David Jeffers, Regional Planner, Lakes Region Planning Commission at 279-8171.

2nd Annual LHS Alumni Event planned for September 28, raises funds for scholarship program Holding a poster showing pictures from last year’s LHS Homecoming and Alumni Reunion are Kathy Calvin, Janet Brough and Joan Cormier. Although it may seem unusual for three non-graduates of Laconia High School to be promoting this event, Calvin, Brough and Cormier have been intrinsically involved with the welfare of our local graduates through the Lakes Region Scholarship Foundation for many years and enthusiastic supporters of the 2nd Annual LHS Alumni event on Sept. 28, which will raise additional scholarship funds. In June, Calvin presented Brough with the 2012 “Annette P. Schmitt Unsung Hero” award, along with a check for $1,000 for the charity of her choice. Brough unhesitatingly handed the check to Cormier to add to the LHS Alumni Scholarship Fund. For more information on the Laconia High School Alumni Reunion, contact 524-5710 or http://lhsalumni.weebly. com/ (Courtesy photo)

Head Coach Dave Gingrich had this to say about the Wavemaker’s end of the season meet, “Swimming is a unique sport that allows swimmers to focus on individual gains and improved personal times. It is also a team sport with swimmers earning points for the team at meets. All swimmers contributed to the overall success of the team. It was their hard work during the Champ’s weekend and throughout the season that led to this placing. The Lakes Region Wavemakers is celebrating its 31st Winter Season this year. The season for new swimmers will begin September 5th and 6th. Returning swimmers will be starting Monday, Sept. 10, 2012. There will be a registration and info night on Thursday, Sept. 6th at the Laconia Athletic and Swim Club at 7 p.m. For more information visit the website at lakesregionwavemakers.com or them on Facebook.
