‘Winky face’ leads to confrontation in parking lot

LACONIA — Prompted by what an eyewitness said was an offensive “emoticon” or text message symbol, two young Laconia men threatened each other in the Domino’s Pizza parking lot on Union Avenue yesterday afternoon around 4 p.m. Police said one man was allegedly armed with an 8-inch hunting knife while the other was carrying a baseball bat. Garrett Brue, 18, of 64 Summer St. Apt 2 and Bradford Ross, 20, of 10 Estates Circle #9 are both charged with see wInKy page 9

Big vote in Laconia propels Youssef past Grimm By Gail OBer


LACONIA — Josh Youssef of Laconia yesterday defeated William “Bill” Grimm of Franklin in the Republican primary for Senate District 7 by a margin of about 400 votes. Youssef got the bulk of his victory margin from his hometown of Laconia, garnering 946 to Grimm’s 563. Grimm carried his

hometown of Franklin and nearby Northfield but the Laconia, Belmont and Gilford voters went for Youssef. Gilford voters supported Youssef by a margin of 608 votes to Grimm’s 455 and Belmont voters supported Youssef by 351-to 266. The two men waged an unusual campaign and, with two exceptions, never actu-

ally met in the same place at the same time for either a candidates night or a debate. Politically, Youssef appeared to be the more conservative of the two — his political beliefs many times mirroring a libertarian view point. Among his supporters were conservative talk show host Niel Young of Laconia, see senaTe 7 page 9

Zuckerberg says time to double down on Facebook

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg hasn’t enjoyed seeing his company’s stock get pummeled on Wall Street this summer, but he is relishing the opportunity to prove his critics wrong. “I would rather be in a cycle where people underestimate us because I’d rather be underestimated,” Zuckerberg said Tuesday. “I think it gives us the latitude to go out and make some big bets.” Zuckerberg, 28, made his remarks before a standing-room-only audience at a tech conference in San Francisco in his first interview since Facebook Inc.’s rocky initial public offering in May. The social networking leader’s stock has lost nearly half its value since the IPO. More than $50 billion has been lopped off Facebook’s market value as the company’s shares have fallen from $38 to Tuesday’s closing price of $19.43. No one has lost as much as Zuckerberg, who has seen the value of his Facebook holdings fall about more than $9

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Harvard basketball co-captain Kyle Casey plans to withdraw from school amid a cheating scandal that also may involve other athletes, according to several reports. Sports Illustrated and the Harvard Crimson reported Tuesday that Casey, a senior, would take a leave of absence from school in an attempt to preserve a year of eligibility once the issue is resolved. Co-captain Brandyn Curry also has been

implicated in the scandal and is weighing his options, his father told the magazine. The Boston Herald reported Curry also is expected to withdraw from classes. The school is looking into whether at least 125 undergraduates in what has been reported to be an Introduction to Congress class of about 280 students cheated by working together on a take-home final exam in the spring. School officials have declined to release

the students’ names. “These allegations, if proven, represent totally unacceptable behavior that betrays the trust upon which intellectual inquiry at Harvard depends,” President Drew Faust said when the cheating scandal was uncovered in August. Each student whose work is in question has been called to appear before a subcommittee of the Harvard College Adminissee HARVARD page 13

Israeli leader ratchets up feud with U.S. over Iran’s nuclear facilities JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel’s prime minister, ratcheting up a public feud with the U.S. over Iran, made it clear Tuesday that he was dissatisfied with Washington’s refusal to spell out what would provoke a U.S.-led military strike against Iranian nuclear facilities.

Mary Bryan, the grandmother of two students at Shoop Academy on the city’s far South Side, supports the teachers because she see “the frustration, the overwork they have.” A protracted labor battle, she acknowledged, would “test the support” of many families.

Unions are still hallowed organizations in much of Chicago, and the teachers union holds a special place of honor in many households where children often grow up to join the same police, firefighter or trade unions as their parents and grandparents. “I’m going to stay strong, behind the teachers,” said the Rev. Michael Grant, who joined teachers on the picket line Tuesday. “My son says he’s proud, ‘You are supporting my teacher.’” But one question looming over the contract talks is whether parents will con-

CHICAGO (AP) — As Chicago teachers walked the picket lines for a second day, they were joined by many of the very people who are most inconvenienced by their strike: the parents who must now scramble to find a place for children to pass the time or for babysitters. Mothers and fathers — some with their kids in tow — are marching with the teachers. Other parents are honking their encouragement from cars or planting yard signs that announce their support in English and Spanish.

Democrat Hassan & Republican Lamontagne will square off for governor CONCORD (AP) — Democrat Maggie Hassan and Republican Ovide Lamontagne won their primaries Tuesday and will compete in November to replace Democratic Gov. John Lynch, whose retirement leaves the seat open for the first time in 10 years. With about 78 percent of the vote reported, unofficial results in the Democratic contest late Tuesday showed Hassan, an attorney, with about 55 percent of the vote to 37 percent for business professor Jackie Cilley. Lamontagne, also an attorney, easily won the Republican contest with about 68 percent of the vote to 30 percent for consultant Kevin Smith. New Hampshire is considered a swing state, though it veered conservative in the 2010 election, and both major parties feel they have a good shot at the office. Lamontagne said in his victory

speech that Hassan and Cilley, both former state senators, had “big government records.” “Let us reject this record of failure and choose a future of prosperity, growth and opportunity,” he said. “My prosperity agenda is based on fiscal responsibility, limited government and an environment in which job creators and entrepreneurs flourish.” This is Lamontagne’s second try for the governor’s office. He lost to Democrat Jeanne Shaheen, now a U.S. senator, in 1996. He also ran unsuccessful campaigns for Congress in 1992 and U.S. Senate in 2010. Hassan said in her victory speech that Lamontagne is too conservative for New Hampshire. She pointed to his opposition to abortion, union rights and gay marriage. She supports gay marriage and abortion rights. “Ovide Lamontagne, the self-pro-

claimed tea party favorite, will move our state backwards with divisive policies,” she said. One key difference between the two Democrats in the primary was Cilley’s refusal to take New Hampshire’s traditional pledge to veto personal income and general sales taxes. The state has neither. Hassan took the pledge and said government can be adequately funded without either tax. Nancy Barlett, of Concord, voted for Hassan, mostly because she thinks Hassan has a better chance at winning the general election. “I like Jackie Cilley very much because she didn’t take the pledge, but I don’t think she can win with that,” she said. Cilley generated some buzz with an ad that portrayed candidates who take the pledge as zombies, but it ultimately wasn’t enough to propel her

past Hassan. Both Republicans pledged not only to veto income and personal property taxes but also to cut business taxes and pay for them by cutting spending. Both said they would support repealing the state’s gay marriage law and replacing it with civil unions. Skip Nolin of Sunapee voted for Lamontagne. “He knows the state very well and knows what needs to be done,” he said. “I could live with Smith, too. Their level of integrity really stands out to me.” Secretary of State Bill Gardner estimated that 168,000 voters, or about 16 percent, would cast ballots in Tuesday’s primary. There were less well-known candidates in both primaries — unemployed store manager Robert Tarr on the GOP side and inn owner Bill Kennedy on the Democratic side.

from preceding page “The world tells Israel, ‘Wait. There’s still time,’” Netanyahu said Tuesday. “And I say: ‘Wait for what? Wait until when?’ Those in the international community who refuse to put red lines before Iran don’t have a moral right to place a red light before Israel.” Tehran insists its nuclear program is peaceful. Although the United States has accused Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapon capability under the cover of a peaceful program, the Obama administration has said it does not believe Iran has yet decided whether to build an atomic bomb — if

it in fact develops the ability to do so. Israel has not publicly defined its own red lines, which might include a deadline for Iran to open its facilities to U.N. inspectors or a conclusion that Iran has begun enriching uranium, a key component in bombmaking, to weapons-grade level. Israel sees a nuclear Iran as a threat to its survival and judging by Netanyahu’s rhetoric, he is not convinced the U.S. will make good on its pledge to prevent Tehran from becoming a nuclear power. For weeks, he has been lobbying the U.S. to take a tough public position

against Iran, with the implicit threat that Israel could act unilaterally if Washington doesn’t. Israel is worried that Iran will soon move key nuclear technology to heavily fortified underground bunkers that would be impervious to Israeli bombs. Should Israel decide to act on its own, it would have less time to strike than the U.S. would because its fire-

power is more limited. Some Israeli officials have suggested that an attack would have to be carried out by fall. Senior American officials, however, have made it clear they oppose any Israeli military action at this time. The U.S., with its superior firepower, would be better positioned than Israel to give nuclear talks and sanctions more time to take effect.

Has Obama called Israel’s bluff? What is Bibi Netanyahu up to? With all his warnings of Iran’s “nuclear capability,” of red lines being crossed, of “breakout,” of the international community failing in its duty, of an “existential threat” to Israel, what is the prime minister’s game? The answer is apparent. Bibi wants Iran’s nuclear program shut down, all enrichment ended, all enriched uranium removed and guarantees that Iran will never again start up a nuclear program. And if Tehran refuses to surrender its right even to a peaceful nuclear program, he wants its nuclear facilities, especially the enrichment facility at Fordow, deep inside a mountain, obliterated. And he wants us to do it. How has Bibi gone about getting America to fight Israel’s war? He is warning, indeed threatening, that if we do not set a date certain for Iran to end enrichment of uranium, and assure Israel that we will attack Iran if it rejects our ultimatum, Israel will bomb Iran and start the war itself. Fail to give us assurances that you will attack Iran if Iran refuses to surrender its nuclear “capability,” Bibi is warning, and we will attack Iran, with all the consequences that will have for you, for us and for the Middle East. This is diplomatic extortion. Thus far, Obama has called Bibi’s bluff, assuming it is a bluff. The United States has refused to set a date certain by which Iran must end all enrichment. Hillary Clinton said this weekend that we are “not setting deadlines.” And the election, which could give Obama a free hand to pursue his own timetable and terms for a deal with Tehran, is only eight weeks off. If Obama, no fan of Bibi, wins, he can tell Bibi: We oppose any Israeli preemptive strike. If you attack Iran, we will not support you. Nor will we follow up an Israeli attack with an American attack. Bibi’s dilemma: Despite his threats of Israeli strikes on Iran, Tehran is taunting him. His Cabinet is divided. The Shas Party in his coalition opposes a war, as do respected retired generals, former Mossad leaders and President Shimon Peres. And the Americans have sent emissaries, including Secretary Leon Panetta, to tell Bibi we oppose an Israeli attack. The Pentagon does not want war. Three former U.S. Central Command heads oppose a war. And last week, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. Martin Dempsey said he does not wish to be “complicit” in any Israeli attack. Implied in the word “complicit” is that Dempsey believes an Israeli first strike on Iran could be an act of aggression. The Israelis were furious, but suddenly the war talk subsided. From the clashes, public and pri-

vate, between these two close allies, it is apparent the United States shares neither Israel’s assessment of the threat nor Israel’s sense of urgency. Why not? Why, when Netanyahu says Israel is facing an “existential threat,” do the Americans dismiss it? The first reason is the elephant in the room no one mentions: Israel’s own nuclear arsenal. If Fordow is a difficult target for Israel to destroy with conventional air strikes, it could be annihilated with a single atom bomb. And Israel has hundreds. Indeed, if Israel has ruled out use of an atomic weapon, even when it says its very existence is threatened, and neoconservatives claim that Iran’s mullahs are such deathwishing fanatics they cannot be deterred even by nuclear weapons, what is Israel’s awesome atomic arsenal for? What this suggests is that the Israelis do not believe what they are saying. Their nuclear deterrent is highly credible to all their neighbors. Their existence is not in imminent peril. And the mullahs are not madmen. When Ronald Reagan was about to take the oath, suddenly those mullahs, assessing that the new American president might be a man of action, not just words, had all the U.S. hostages winging their way home. When the USS Vincennes mistakenly shot down an Iranian airliner in 1988, the Ayatollah Khomeini, founding father of the Islamic Republic, ended his war with Iraq on unfavorable terms, fearing America was about to intervene on the side of Saddam Hussein. Like all rulers, good and evil, Iran’s leaders want to preserve what they have — families, homes, lives, privileges, possessions, power. When suicide missions are ordered, you do not read of ayatollahs or of Iranian politicians driving the truck or wearing the vest. Moreover, the latest report of the international inspectors reveals that while Iran increased its supply of uranium enriched to 20-percent since last spring, an even larger share of that 20-percent uranium has been diverted to make fuel plates for Iran’s U.S.-provided research reactor to make medical isotopes. If there is no reason to go to war with Iran, there is every reason not to go to war. Notwithstanding the alarmist rhetoric of Bibi and Ehud Barak, President Obama should stand his ground. And on this one, Gov. Romney should stand with the president, not the prime minister. (Syndicated columnist Pat Buchanan has been a senior advisor to three presidents, twice a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination and the presidential nominee of the Reform Party in 2000. He won the New Hampshire Republican Primary in 1996.)

LETTERS Check out the ridiculous stuff sent to you online at To the editor, I recently received a hateful e-mail full of blatantly false information about Obama’s position on the national anthem and the American flag. I do try to remember to verify via the accuracy in the abundance of information flying around the Internet about both Romney and Obama. I find this a wonderful resource for anyone not wanting to pass along sensationalized and potentially harmful information via e-mails, Facebook, or Twitter and would suggest that all would be well served to use this resource whenever they can. As I suspected, the information in the e-mail I received was false. Interested readers can read more at obama/stance.asp I just wish that voters in this country would look beyond the convenient sound bites that only support what they wish to believe, rather than truly listening to information that will inform, rather than negate the democratic process. If we can’t talk sensibly with one another using issue-oriented subject matter rather than hyperbole and criticism, then true progress will be a long time in coming. I have been equally incensed about the stories of Romney’s dog on top of his car. That

is inflating an incident that happened years ago when the culture of what was acceptable was different and in no way reflects on how Romney treats his animals or others today. While I am a declared Independent, this time I am voting for President Obama because I most truly believe in what he says and in the process of cooperation and outreach that is his natural inclination and modus operandi. If the Republican-dominated Congress would listen to what he is saying instead of putting up walls to everything he suggests, I’ll bet they would find an honest and sincere person who loves this country as much as they do and who most certainly deserves to be treated with respect. Obama is a true American patriot just as much as is Romney. They simply differ on how to bring the best forward for American citizens. Our opinions on these stark differences between these two good men is how we should determine how we vote in November. My prayers are that Washington DC and both parties — as well as all of us — will work together rather than continuing to escalate this idiotic food fight. Judy Buswell Laconia

Most basic function of government is to defend our country To the editor, This morning I read the following: The August 6, 2001 daily security briefing to President Bush stating: “Bin Laden Determined to strike in U.S.” was just the latest in a long string of direct warnings from the CIA to President Bush about al Qaeda attack on U.S. soil. These warnings included a May 1 report that “a group presently in the United States” was planning a terrorist operation, a June 22, daily brief report that Qaeda strikes could be “imminent,” a June 29 report from operatives connected to bin Laden that the planned near-term attacks to have “dramatic consequences,” including major casualties, and a July 1 brief that the operation had been delayed, but “will occur soon.” However, neoconservative leaders at the Pentagon told the White House

bin Laden was merely pretending to be planning an attack to distract the administration from Saddam Hussein, whom the neoconservatives saw as a greater threat. Although CIA officials protested that the idea of bin Laden, an Islamic fundamentalist, conspiring with Mr. Hussein, an Iraqi secularist, was ridiculous, the neoconservatives carried the day and the White House did not act on this intelligence. (See: opinion/the-bush-white-house-was-deaf-to-911-warnings.html?smid=fb-share) The most basic function of government is to defend the USA. President Obama has a proven track record. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan do not. And Mitt Romney is again surrounding himself with neocon advisors. That tells me a lot. Elaine Warshell

LETTERS Obama wants to rebuild from bottom up but hasn’t yet found bottom To the editor, Odd thing happen as I prepared to write this letter; I read another’s which states the economic crisis we have today is the result of Republican nihilism and a weak Democrat(ic) leadership. Odd in that I’ve been listening to an Obama approved message from Bill Clinton stating that what Obama wants to do is to rebuild this nation from the ground up. It would and does seem to me that it is the Democrats who are the ones who seek to wipe this nation’s slate clean and rebuilt it. I’ve said before that if “Teddy” Kennedy had trusted the people he most likely could have passed an amendment to the U.S. Constitution during the 40+ years in the U.S. Senate to give the “Federal” Government the power to establish a national health care system. But that route wouldn’t secure power to the government, it would continue the premise of our founding, that government derives its powers from the people. Justice Roberts was correct in his ruling on the “ACA”, the commerce clause doesn’t give the U.S. Government the power to force the individual citizen to purchase a product. Since the presidency of “Teddy” Roosevelt the progressive/liberal element in this nation has been in assault on the founding principles of this nation. These “United” States and the Fed-

eral Government which they established were not seeking a “one size fits all” national government. They sought a united front to the rest of the world and cooperation amongst themselves. The liberals over the last 100 years have altered government and the ideas of this nation sufficiently that its collapse will go unnoticed by most. The “Federal” Government will be paramount, our individual rights as enshrined in the Bill of Rights will be meaningless as will be articles 9 & 10 it its founding Constitution. Added to the DNC platform on the 5th, “amid protest” from the convention floor was, “We need a government that stands up for the hopes, values, and interests of working people, and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their Godgiven potential.” The fact that “Obama wants to rebuild this nation from the ground up.” as Clinton says, it is well that it has been included; as the America which Obama was elected president of did as much and more, certainly, as he’d not be the president otherwise. And as to his progress on rebuilding this country from the bottom up, he hasn’t yet found the bottom, the U.S. has gone from number one on the global competitiveness Index to seventh since his term in office began. G.W. Brooks Meredith

Vote for Mr. Lamb is vote to revert to liberal, Democratic overspending To the editor, I read with interest Denise Doyle’s letter to the editor, and I am going to address the inaccuracies in her letter. In the 2011-2012 legislative session, lawmakers were faced with an $800-million deficit created by overspending by the then-controlled Democratic Legislature. The overspending, bonding of operating expenses, and relying on one-time stimulus funds brought N.H. to its very own fiscal cliff. Clearly the voters spoke when they put Republicans back in control, knowing that increasing taxes was not an option. Voters had enough of new and increased taxes (over 80 in the last four years). It is important for voters to understand that the legislation Ms. Doyle refers to (reducing the dropout age, eliminating requirements for technology education, foreign languages and the arts, and reducing funding the state’s university system by 50-percent) started in the House, and with the exception of the university system cut, all were defeated. A gentle reminder, every state agency was cut — the university system was not targeted — because this state was facing an $800-million deficit caused by Democrats. Relative to the House re-districting

issue, if Ms. Doyle believes that Senator Forrester has any control over the Speaker of the House, she hasn’t been paying attention to what’s been happening in the last two years. To suggest that Meredith has lost representation is also incorrect. Meredith now has the potential to have four Meredith residents represent the town in Concord, versus the two representatives in the last district. Ms. Doyle’s claim that Senator Forrester supported the Senate redistricting plan is not true. Does she believe that because Bob Lamb went to Concord and testified, he was able to change the Senate plan? I don’t think so! To use a quote from an e-mail Senator Bragdon sent to a Holderness resident: “We will be amending the redistricting bill to put Holderness back into District 2. Senator Forrester fought hard for that.” I fear a vote for Mr. Lamb is a vote to revert back to the liberal, Democratic overspending and taxing that we saw in the four years previous. I urge people to vote for Jeanie Forrester, because I know she has and will continue to work hard for the people our district. Phyllis S. Hamblet Meredith

God told me I don’t have the right to judge others; no matter what To the editor, Dear Mr. McCoy: Our founding fathers, and one in particular, James Madison, was an ardent supporter that our government be formed with the implicit tenant of the separation of church and state. While you have the right to your

opinion, granted by the Bill of Rights, God told me personally that neither you or I have the right to judge or stand in judgment of others no matter their race, creed or sexual preference. Bernadette Loesch Laconia

LETTERS Ryan plan would increase insurance competition & lower costs

Past GOP presidents played big roles in building infrastructure

To the editor, Wow, Bill Dawson is telling tales about health care without knowing the facts. He starts out talking about “legislation to enable states to jointly opt out of all federal health care rules” and lays out a process like it is going through the amendment process to the U.S. Constitution. You never really say where this legislation is being voted on. Is it at the federal level or in various states? You mention the Affordable Care Act, more commonly referred to as ObamaCare. Is this proposed legislation in regards to this law? You don’t make it very clear. The effects of this proposed legislation looks like you are spouting the liberal lies about the Ryan Plan, but that bill is sitting in the U.S. Senate with all the other budget bills that Harry Reid refuses to pass. Is this proposed legislation the bill that actually passed the House to repeal ObamaCare? Your facts are clearly wrong if this is the case. I will provide you with the facts on these two bills so you can understand what the difference is. The Ryan Plan, which is actually the 2011 Federal Budget passed by the House of Representatives is not the Romney Plan that Mitt plans to propose to congress. These two plans have a similar approach regarding Medicare, which is the only health care portion proposed. These plans make changes in the Medicare system for anyone under age 55 by inviting all insurance companies

To the editor, The Tea Party in New Hampshire has got to be stopped. Bob Greenmore’s letter which appeared in the Laconia Daily Sun on August 30 is a perfect example of how often Tea Partiers base critical decisions on errant facts. We need to replace him, Jeanie Forrester, Colette Worsman and others with similar voting records because they threaten the future of our great state. Greenmore gets the facts wrong when he implies government had no involvement in the building of our roads, bridges, dams, and railroads. Eisenhower and Lincoln, both great Republican Presidents, played key roles in the building of this critical infrastructure. They did the job because they knew that only government could tackle these big challenges.

This would be done annually and everyone eligible for this benefit would receive an insurance policy for free equal to the second to the lowest bid submitted with the option of paying the difference themselves should they want a more expensive policy. The prices would be locked in for a year and this process would be repeated each year so that someone wanting the standard policy would pay nothing for the rest of their life. The basis for these plans comes right out of the Simpson/Boles commission that the president put in place. Unfortunately he refused to institute any of the recommendations from his commission. As to the legislation to repeal ObamaCare, this plan is to open up the marketplace so that anyone from anywhere can purchase an insurance policy from any company anywhere in the country. This would increase competition and lower costs. Another way to lower costs is by turning all the mandates on the insurance companies telling them specifically what coverage they need to provide to everyone into options that people can add to their policies. This would eliminate a single woman paying for testicular cancer coverage that she will never use. Bill, you should try being a little clearer with the facts in your next letter so you don’t sound so ridiculous to the average reader. Greg Knytych New Hampton

Republicans & Democrats: I wish a plague on both your houses To the editor, NEWSFLASH: all the cable news channels have announced Congress is back from its Augest break. DAH, let me check; this Monday is September 10 (nice fall break). Does it really matter in November if we vote for the socialist Obama or the pretty boy Romney. Nothing will change

until both parties put aside their political differences and egos.Generations of patriots gave their lives to save this Republic. Political deadlock is destroying this country from within. A PLAGUE ON BOTH YOUR HOUSES. Tom Sellew Lochmere


The will meet at the Plymouth Town Hall, 6 Post Office Square on to hold a to discuss and hear comments from the public on the following new application:

While I am no fan of big government, I recognize that the big things in our world can only be accomplished with government help. Public education, public safety, and our highway infrastructure are examples of critical functions that only government can perform. We cannot pretend to outsource these critical tasks to our neighbors. Yet Greenmore, Worsman, Forrester and their Tea Party brethren have voted among other things, to dismantle our public education system. Worsman even voted for the elimination of kindergarten. Is this really what we want for New Hampshire? The Tea Party view of the world has no place in New Hampshire and we need to reject it in November. Steve Merrill Meredith

I don’t want more guns in society under any circumstances To the editor, Two sides to every question, yes, yes, yes, . . . But every now and then, just weighing in Is what it must come down to... — Seamus Heaney After reading and confirming some of the votes taken by Jackie Cilley, I will be voting for Maggie Hassan. Guns and smoking alone are enough for me. Cilley voted against the smoking ban in restaurants. She voted to allow people to pull a gun any time and anywhere to defend themselves at a perceived threat. This makes me feel

less safe. Also, her vote not to cap interest on payday loans was wrong. I know people who got trapped by those loans. Her answers as to why she made the votes just aren’t good enough. I want less smoking and certainly not where I eat, and I don’t want more guns in society under any circumstance. Pity the people trapped in payday loans with interest with no limit. So I am weighing in. Maggie Hassan is the one for me. Judith A Rothemund Laconia

Many Republican leaders promote war but haven’t served To the editor, Having faced multiple tours in two war zones during the last 10 years, our military (and their families), when asked whether they are better off now then they were four years ago, will respond with a resounding “yes!” The war in Iraq, ill-conceived and poorly planned but bravely fought by our

soldiers, marines, sailors and airmen, is a dark period in our country’s history. President Barack Obama has ended our involvement in Iraq and will soon remove our troops from Afghanistan. Leaders of the Republican Party, many of whom promote war but haven’t served, have seemingly erased see next page

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, September 12, 2012 — Page 7

LETTERS Big difference between a utility pole and a radio signal tower To the editor, Regarding the placement of a commercial broadcast antenna on the city’s Hilliard Road tower that is used by Laconia’s Police Department for 2-way radio communication: The location of the Laconia PD’s tower which supports the antenna for radio communications, is in fact a utility pole, set in the municipal right of way on the side of the road. This “tower” would be replaced by a steel structure which would require a concrete base(s). A steel tower may be self-supporting (three or four legs) or cables. The footprint of a utility pole to that of a steel tower are not comparable, nor is the requirement of a ground plane of a two-way radio to that of a commercial broadcast radio station. Because of the tower height, number and type of antennas and possible mandated FAA navigational requirements of red and white markings or even a white strobe light all become factors. The offer to build a new transmission tower, donate it to the city and then lease space on it, omits the laws that when government property is leased, the leaser shall pay property taxes.

Also, what is questionable is the current police radio is not a repeater but a transceiver, transmitting and receiving voice or data via land line to the police station. Before any consideration of additional antennas the intermodulation issues must be addressed first. Next is 2009’s $26,913.00, disparate grant for a two-way microwave radio link between the police station and Parade /Hilliard road locations, needed to eliminate special two-way telephone Co. land line. Moreover, the Microwave Radio System, which requires “Line of Sight,” has been on the drawing board short of four years. Has the grant money been returned, reassigned by the appropriating authority or simply gaining interest separate from the General Fund? Could the cost of building a “tower” high enough so the microwave radio system will work a hidden agenda? Could it be that “the city is exempt from its ordinances” and can bypass ordinances?

Store employees didn’t care about dog trapped in car in their lot To the editor, This is concerning a dog that was left in a black car with no windows open on Sept. 8. It was a warm, partially sunny day. The dog was barking and didn’t seem in distress at the time. But I’m sure that in no time at all he would become overheated and worse. This from preceding page Iraq and Afghanistan from their collective memory. They are now looking for fresh wars as their presidential candidate talks of possible military involvements in Iran and Syria. John T. Goegel Canterbury

was at a Gilford store parking lot. I was concerned and took the license plate number and went to the customer service desk to have them page the owners of the car and about their dog. The customer service person said it was their policy to not get involved but they could give me the number of the police. I was livid because by the time the police did arrive it could’ve been too late for that poor dog. Needless to say I was completely disgusted about the situation. I vowed to stay in the parking lot to be sure the dog didn’t become distressed and luckily the owner of the car did return within just a couple of minutes see next page

Coffee roaster fire tab estimated at $70,000 By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Firefighters from Laconia and Gilford quickly extinguished a chimney fire that broke out in a coffee roaster at the Woodshed Roasting Company in the Lakes Business Park around 2 p.m. yesterday. Brad Fitzgerald, who owns the firm as well as the building on Hounsell Ave., which houses a handful of other small businesses, said that the fire began in the attachment to the roaster which collects the chaff, or the outer skin shed by the beans as they are roasted. “It’s very flammable,” he said, explaining that the collector is thoroughly emptied and vacuumed. Fitzgerald called 911 as soon as he saw the smoke, by which time fire was making its way up the chimney. When firefighters reached the scene to find smoke billowing from the roof, a second alarm was sounded, but quickly rescinded once it was determined that the fire was confined to the roaster and chimney. Deploying the ladder truck, some firefighters doused the flames and removed the coffee roaster from the building while others in the bucket atop the aerial ladder secured the roof. Fire Chief Ken Erickson estimated the damage from the fire at approximately $70,000, of which the roaster alone represented $40,000. Firefighters covered Fitzgerald’s stock of coffee beans.sparing them from water damage. However, Deputy Chief Charles Roffo said that Deputy Chief Shawn Riley, who serves as the city’s health officer, would evaluate whether smoke from the fire left the beans unfit for consumption. Fitzgerald, who also operates Conservation FIRE TRUCK from page one “Disappointing for sure,” said Fire Engineer Chair Bill Akerley. “As much as it was a majority it shows the town’s people do support it.” He said he would try and get 10 signatures for a recount saying five votes the other way changes the balance. “I would be remiss for not asking for one.” Akerley said he will proceed with the voter’s will to repair Engine 4 and he is hoping that with the School District returning $1-million to the town from its 2011-12 appropriation, he hopes the estimated $50,000 needed to complete repairs can come from that pool of money. The request for a replacement pumper-tanker for Engine 4 — 25-year-old pumper tanker — began during the last budget season and was included in the town’s capital improvement plan. After the purchase was approved by the Board of Fire Commissioners, selectmen agreed to include from preceding page so the dog was okay. It was the principal that the store employees couldn’t have cared less about the welfare of the dog. And being an animal lover that really concerned me. Peggy Allain Laconia

At the time, Akerley recommended selectmen not include the warrant article to refurbish the engine because he said it needed so much work and was so old that it would be like throwing good money after bad. There is about nine months of wait time for a new piece of fire apparatus because they are built to specifications determined by each fire department. The warrant articles as well as the rest of the 2012 budget moved on to the Budget Committee where two Budget Committee members — Kevin Leandro and Pat LaBonte — challenged the department’s need for a new truck saying the old truck could likely be fixed to the point where it could last another two or three years. Leandro and LaBonte have extensive backgrounds in diesel engines and heavy trucks. Neither man is a former firefighter though LaBonte is a former fire engineer. The Budget Committee split 6-to-6 and did not recommend buying a new fire truck. Acting on the information given to them by Leandro and LaBonte, selectmen voted 3-to-0 to not recommend the passage of the warrant article and it failed by a nearly 2-to-1 margin at the March annual town meeting see next page

Church Street man charged with cooking meth at this apartment By Gail OBer


LACONIA — A Church Street man arrested in a methamphetamine bust Monday afternoon is being held on $10,000 cash-only bail after appearing by video in district court yesterday. Richard Holmes, 32, of 108 Church St. Apt. 2 is charged with one felony count of manufacturing methamphetamine and one felony charge of attempting to falsify evidence for allegedly calling his girlfriend and telling her the police were coming to the apartment she should get rid of a box containing a meth lab. Police affidavits obtained from the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division said the investigation into Holmes began after Laconia Police and U.S. FedSENATE 7 from page one former gubernatorial candidate Karen Testerman of Franklin and Laconia State Representatives Robert Kingsbury, Harry Accornero and Bob Luther. Retiring District 4 Senator Jim Forsythe of Stafford, who chose not to run again after the senate districts were redrawn, also supported Youssef. Youssef has been dogged by an ugly 2006 divorce brought to light initially by the Concord Monitor, which reported on his three-day testimony before the House Redress Committee. Later articles in area newspapers reported details of his divorce including his ex-wife’s contention that he has been hiding assets to avoid paying child support. Much of the information initially provided to newspapers came from Youssef’s ex-wife’s lawyer and Grimm supporters. Youssef is a native of Laconia and graduated from Laconia High School. He is the owner of Same Day Computer on Union Avenue in Laconia and holds the franchise rights to at least six other Same Day Computer stores. Grimm was supported by Franklin Mayor Ken Merrifield, who felt he was the subject of some last minute campaign shenanigans by the Youssef campaign, Laconia City Councilors Henry Lipman and Bob Hamel, retiring Gilford State Representative Alida Millham and Merrimack County Sheriff Scott Hilliard. Youssef will face Laconia resident and Democrat Andrew Hosmer in the November election, guaranteeing that a Laconia resident will hold a seat in the State Senate for the first time in more than half a century. from preceding page ballot vote. After it failed, members of the fire department took Engine 4 to Lakes Region Fire Apparatus in Tamworth for repairs — the most significant of which was to the pump. Mechanics dissembled the pump and realized that not only were the insides not functioning properly but the pump-housing was damaged beyond repair. Added to the other needed repairs of a radiator, some cab mounts and some loose wiring and the new estimate to fix Engine 4 went to somewhere between $40,000 and $70,000 — depending on who was asked. Lakes Region Fire Apparatus mechanics also notified Chief Steve Carrier that the brakes were unsafe and Engine 4 was taken out of service and towed back to Gilford. Selectmen initially decided that if they voted hold a special town meeting to approve a lease contact for a new fire truck but didn’t raise or spend any of the money until 2013, they could circumvent the need to go to a Superior Court judge to ask for permission to hold an “emergency” town meeting Some members of the Budget Committee challenged the special meeting under the so-called “no means no” provision of the N.H. Municipal Budget Act and selectmen voted to take the matter to Belknap County Superior Court. A Belknap County judge ruled the fire truck constituted a legitimate emergency and the warrant article was place before voters yesterday.

eral Marshals arrested Bruce Simmons Jr., 28, of 45 Messer St. Apt. 4 on Monday on a federal warrant for manufacturing and conspiring to manufacture methamphetamine. After Simmons agreed to speak with police, they said he told them he wasn’t involved but was buying ingredients for Holmes. Police had video surveillance footage of him and Holmes together in Wal-Mart on

July 19 purchasing three of the key ingredients used in manufacturing methamphetamine. Laconia detectives went to Wal-Mart and obtained pseudo-ephedrine logs for both men and learned Holmes had bought the cold medicine six times at local pharmacies and Wal-Mart in the first week of August. see next page

WINKY from page one felony-level criminal threatening. Neither was injured. One young man who identified himself to The Sun said he, Brue and some of their friends were walking down Union Avenue when Ross allegedly sent Brue a “winky face” — or a text message that is apparently not meant as a compliment. He said he and his friends were confronted by Ross who he said suddenly pulled out a knife. “I don’t know what kind of knife it was, only it was huge,” he said holding his hands about seven to eight inches apart to demonstrate the length. Captain Matt Canfield confirmed police took a 8-inch hunting knife from Ross. He said multiple city police responded to what was reported to them as a “brawl.” For about 40 minutes the entire parking lot and one side of Union Avenue were blanketed by police cars. Young people were hunched over police cars writing statements using the Ad trunks tables while 25MVS062 College Planning - Shawnfor 6.75x8 Laconia.pdf others were being interviewed by individual officers.

The rest were separated and their statements taken by other officers. The young man who spoke to The Sun had already given his account to police. Sheila Abbott operates the Garden Island Laundromat that is in the same shopping center and said she saw a bunch of young people — both boys and girls — in the parking lot. “Honestly, it seemed like they were having a good time,” she said, saying she kept an eye on them just because there were so many of them. Within minutes she said she could hear yelling and sirens. “I guess one whipped out a knife on the other,” she said, noting two of the many police officers who arrived –— including Canfield and Police Chief Chris Adams — had already put at least two of the men in squad cars. As of 8:30 p.m. neither Brue nor Ross was in the Belknap County House of Corrections. It is not known if they were released on personal recognibail12:37 or ifPMcash bail was posted on their behalf. 1 zance 7/17/12 — Gail Ober

Police investigating hit & run incident at Opechee Parkhouse parking lot LACONIA — Police continue to investigate a hit and run accident that sent a Franklin man to the hospital with what police are calling non-life threatening injuries. Police said Randy Nadon, 35, of Charles Street in Franklin was walking north on the sidewalk along North Main Street at 2:30 p.m. in front of

the Opechee Park clubhouse when a white Hyundai bearing Massachusetts plates turned into the parking lot, turned around and drove back out the entrance. Nadon told police the car struck him and he rolled on to the hood and fell on to the pavement. He said the car drove away immediately headed north on

North Main Street. He described the drive as a heavy-set white female in her early to mid twenties. He said his girlfriend drove him to the hospital. Anyone who may of witnessed this accident or have any information is asked to contact Laconia Police at 524-5252 and ask for Officer Kristian Young. — Gail Ober

from preceding page When initially questioned, Holmes told police he had nothing to do with making methamphetamine but said he had bought the pseudo-ephedrine for Simmons’s “colds.” When asked if police could search his apartment, he said no and said he wanted to contact his lawyer. Police went to Holmes apartment and Holmes girlfriend agreed to speak with them in the hallway. When they told her why they were there, she became upset and told them Holmes had called her and told her to get rid of a box. Affidavits said she told them the box was on the back porch and she retrieved it and gave it to the detectives. The woman told police she didn’t think Holmes had been involved in any recent methamphetamine activity but allegedly told them how about one or two months ago she had seen a bottle that could have been used for cooking methamphetamine in the car she shared with him. Police said she gave them permission to search the car. Police also said they noticed from the hallway a

pipe used for smoking drugs on the living room table. She also told them there was some marijuana in the house. Detectives applied for and got a search warrant, City police and members of the New England Clandestine Lab Enforcement Team seized the box and the items in it included a gas generator and a one-pot meth lab. Richard Holmes Police took Holmes into (Laconia Police photo) custody and he allegedly told them Simmons had made methamphetamine in his Church Street apartment on at least one occasion. Affidavits also said he told police he wrote down the recipe to make methamphetamine after Simmons gave it to him. He also allegedly admitted calling his girlfriend and telling her to get rid of the box. Holmes is scheduled to appear in district court on September 24.

Cataldo tops Green for GOP nod in Senate 6



ROCHESTER — Sam Cataldo of Farmington topped Dick Green of Rochester by 240 votes to win the Republican primary for the New Hampshire Senate in District 6 in what counts as stunning victory for the Tea Party and Free State Project. Cataldo beat Green by 240 votes — 2,373 to 2,133 — carrying Rochester and four of the five towns in the district. Cataldo, who just completed his third term in the New Hampshire House of Representatives, carried Rochester, where Green served as mayor for a decade, by 18 votes. Cataldo won in Farmington by 251 to 140, in New Durham by 159 to 120, in Barnstead by 274 to 172, and in Gilmanton by 204 to 195. Green took Alton. Green was elected to the Senate in 1972, 2002 and 2004 and served as both director of the division of economic development at the New I O N Hampshire Department of Resources and Economic Development and executive director of the Pease Development Authority.

Cormier easily ousts Bolster ALTON — In her first election, Jane Cormier of Alton denied Peter Bolster of Alton a third term in the New Hampshire House of Representatives by carrying two of the three towns in the district — Alton and Barnstead — by wide margins to win the Republican primary in District 8. Gilmanton, the third town in the district, had not reported by press time. Cormier trounced Bolster, in Alton, 638 to 244, and took Barnstead comfortably, 292 to 176. A professional singer and music teacher, Cormier is closely aligned with both the Tea Party and the Free State Project, which together provided much momentum to her campaign. She claimed to be the authentic Republican in the race and openly

challenged Bolster’s Republican credentials. One of a shrinking band of moderate Republicans in the House, Bolster’s voting record earned him among the lowest scores in the Republican caucus from conservative organizations like the New Hampshire Liberty Alliance, Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire, House Republican Alliance and Gun Owners of New Hampshire. In Alton, the 882 ballots cast in the race represented more than half of all registered Republicans voters. In Barnstead, half the registered Republicans voted in the contest. In Alton, the 1,154 ballots cast in the primary represented 31-percent of the electorate. There were 1,154 votes cast in the primary

Comtois tops Swinford in Barnstead BARNSTEAD — In a contest between two incumbent state representatives, Guy Comtois bested Elaine Swinford to win the Republican primary for the one seat in the House of Representatives in Barnstead by a margin of 303 to 206. Swinford, who chaired the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee, was seeking her third term and Comtois his second. The candidates represent the two different strands of conservatism running through the GOP with Comtois the more libertarian of the pair while Swinford describes herself as a “Reagan Republican.” While the two seldom differed in the Statehouse, they were on opposite sides of the deeply and evenly divided Belknap County Convention, consist-

ing of the 18 elected representatives in the county — all Republicans — as Comtois consistently voted to reduce the county budget and Swinford steadfastly supported the proposal of the County Commission. Swinford could take some consolation from being chosen as the delegate to the GOP state convention, topping the poll with 198 votes, more than twice as many as Alan Glassman, chairman of the Belknap County Republican Committee. The 509 votes cast were the most among the six contested races on the GOP primary ballot and represented 55-percent of the 928 registered Republicans in Barnstead. Comtois will face Democrat Bruce Marriott, who was unopposed in yesterday’s primary, in the general election.

LACONIA — Following the Republican primary the same five who represented the city in the House of Representatives for the past two years will be on the GOP ticket again this year. With the newly drawn districts, the city, which has elected five House members in the past, will return four, but share a representative in a floterial district with the town of Belmont. In the race for the four seats in the city Frank Tilton led the Republican poll in all six wards to finish with 1,086. He was trailed by Don Flanders with 1,043 votes, Bob Luther with 836 votes and Bob Kingsbury with 829 votes. The fifth candidate in the primary, Kenneth Deshaies, polled 674 votes.

Moreover, incumbent Harry Accornero topped Glenn Dewhirst in the floterial district. Accornero carried Laconia by 731 to 654 and Belmont by 279 to 205 to win the spot on the general election ballot 1,010 to 859. Tilton, Flanders, Luther and Kingsbury will face Democrats Robert Fisher, David Huot, Charles Smith and Chad Vaillancourt in the general election while Accornero will be opposed by Beth Arsenault. A third of all registered voters in the city’s six wards cast ballots in the primary. With only the gubernatorial primary on the Democratic ballot, Republicans accounted for approximately two-thirds of those who went to the polls.

Fink & Sylvia earn spots on Belmont ballot All 5 GOP incumbents in Laconia advance

BELMONT — Charles Fink and Michael Sylvia, who mounted write-in campaigns in the Republican primary for the town’s two seats in the New Hampshire House of Representatives, both qualified for the general election by polling far more than the 35 votes needed for a place on the ticket. Fink, a lifelong Republican, collected 275 votes and Sylvia, a libertar-

ian who came to New Hampshire as a member of the Free State Project, collected 216 in voting yesterday. The two stepped forward when the GOP appeared on the brink of ceding the two seat to the Democrats by failed to field candidates during the filing period. Fink and Sylvia will run against Democrats Ron Cormier and George Condodemetraky in the general election.

FACEBOOK from page 2 billion. That while hearing more skeptics second-guess his ability to lead the company that he founded eight years ago in his Harvard University dorm room. Since speaking during Facebook’s first earnings conference call as a public company nearly seven weeks ago, Zuckerberg has remained largely out of the spotlight. Wearing a gray T-shirt, jeans and sneakers, Zuckerberg looked at ease through his half-hour appearance. He smiled frequently and even chuckled a few times before a San Francisco audience composed largely of fellow geeks

Red Sox give Orioles a lift by beating Yankees 4-3

New fire truck supporters came so close Don Spear (red shirt) and Bill Akerley (right) speak with George Whalley and Jim Dirubbo at the Gilford Middle School on Tuesday as they campaign for passage of a emergency warrant article to allow the lease/purchase of a new fire truck. The measure came up just short of the 60-percent majority vote needed for passage. See story on page 1 (Karen Bobotas/for The Laconia Daily Sun)

CHICAGO from page 2 they might demand teachers go back to work,” Bryan added. To win friends, the union has engaged in something of a publicity campaign, telling parents repeatedly about problems with schools and the barriers that have made it more difficult to serve their kids. They cite classrooms that are stifling hot without air conditioning, important books that are unavailable and supplies as basic as toilet paper that are sometimes in short supply. “They’ve been keeping me informed about that for months and months,” Grant said. It was a shrewd tactic, said Robert Bruno, professor of labor and employment relations at the University of Illinois at Chicago. “This union figured out they couldn’t assume the public would be on their side so they went out and actively engaged in getting parent support,” Bruno said. “They worked like the devil to get it.”

But, said some reform advocates, public opinion could swing against the union relatively soon if the dispute seems to carry on with no resolution in sight. Juan Jose Gonzalez is the Chicago director for the education advocacy group Stand for Children, which has hundreds of parent volunteers and was instrumental in pushing legislative reforms in Illinois. He says parents “are all over the map” in terms of their support for teachers or the school district. “Within a day or two, all parents are going to turn their ire toward the strike,” Gonzalez said. “As parents see what the district offers and see the teachers not counter-propose, they will become increasingly frustrated with the grandstanding.” During the last Chicago teachers strike in 1987, Bill Werme and his wife got so angry they pulled their daughter out of public school and enrolled her in private school for second grade. Parents could face the same choice now.

BOSTON (AP) — Excited Red Sox players poured from the dugout. Jacoby Ellsbury had a huge smile after his game-winning single. Pedro Ciriaco jumped for joy after sliding home with the deciding run. And losing pitcher David Robertson walked slowly to the dugout after the New York Yankees missed a chance to keep sole possession of first place in the AL East, losing to Boston 4-3 on Tuesday night. “That was a great feeling,” said Ellsbury, who had four hits on his 29th birthday. “The fans were great tonight. They were into the game, energetic and we just want to keep putting on a show for them.” His hit provided a rare moment of celebration for the Red Sox, losers of 11 of 13 games and consigned to the role of trying to ruin the playoff chances of other teams in the division. On Tuesday they did it against their traditional rivals. “With the Yankees in town, they’re battling for a (playoff) spot and at this point we can just go out and try to play spoiler,” left fielder Cody Ross said. “We don’t care who we play. We just want to win.” The loss left the Yankees and Orioles tied with 79-62 records. Baltimore beat Tampa Bay 9-2 on Tuesday night. The Rays are two back in the division. “You wouldn’t be tied for first unless you found ways to win games throughout the course of 140-something games that we’ve played,” Derek Jeter said. “So we’ve got to do it again.” But he knows the Red Sox would like to win the remaining two games of the series even if they are in last place. “When you compete and you want to win, I don’t care where you are in the standings,” he said. “Especially when it’s Red Sox-Yankees, guys want to play well.” Ciriaco has done that against the Yankees. He went 2 for 3 on Tuesday and is 17 for 35 in nine games in his career against New York, all with Boston this season. “He was struggling a little bit, I heard, coming in, too,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “He hits a ball at his shoetops to lead off the ninth. I mean, he just finds a way against us.” That hit with one out found the hole and went into left field. Mike Aviles then singled between shortstop and third base. Jeter fielded the ball but held it as he had no chance to get either Ciriaco or Aviles. Then Ellsbury lined his decisive single to right field. Ichiro Suzuki fired the ball home, but Ciriaco slid in ahead of the tag by Russell Martin.

Meredith proud to carry 9/11 observance past 10th anniversary

MEREDITH — Now entering its second decade of annual commemoration, American Legion Post 33 organized a ceremony yesterday at Hesky Park, on the shore of Meredith Bay, to reflect on the tragic events of September 11, 2001. Though some neighboring communities have allowed the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks to be the final one calling for an official ceremony, the commander of Post 33 has no intention of letting the date pass unmarked. “It never gets stale,” Post Commander Bob Kennelly said of the event. “I want to keep on doing this for as long as I can.” The program began with the singing of the National Anthem, a recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, and with Deputy Fire Chief Tom Joslin ringing a bell in memory of the emergency responders who died eleven years ago in New York City. “It was a day just like this,” observed Pat Kelly, master of ceremonies. September 11 fell on a Tuesday in 2001, as it did this year, and similar to that day in 2001, the weather yesterday was clear and calm. That calm was soon replaced with terror and violence. Kelly continued, “America was in grief, America was in shock, it took a while to bring us back.” Police Chief Kevin Morrow said it was through their fellow citizens that Americans were able to address the grief and loss. He said, “Gatherings like this one represent the pride, support and honor,” Americans demonstrated to those who were lost, and their family members, in 2001. He said those present should keep the victims in mind “as we carry on.” Ken Jones, fire chief, called the terrorist attacks “one of the biggest cowardly acts known to mankind.” He continued, “On September 11, 2001, the fire service lost 343 brothers.” Many of those rushed into the burning World Trade Center towers as terrified office workers fled, risking their lives to assist others. Jones called them, “FDNY’s finest — and perhaps bravest — that day.” For Miller Lovett, selectman, September 11 is a day when he recalls “the worst hours of my life.” On the day of the terrorist attacks, he had driven

HARVARD from page 2 trative Board, which reviews issues of academic integrity. Possible punishments range from an admonition, a sort of warning for a first offense, to being forced to withdraw from Harvard for a year. Harris emphasized that none of the allegations has been proven and said there’s no evidence of widespread cheating at Harvard. The Crimson reported that other athletes, including football players are also among those implicated. Harvard spokesman Tim Williamson declined to comment on Tuesday. Messages seeking comment also were left for Harvard basketball coach Tommy Amaker, football coach Tim Murphy, Curry and Casey. Harvard is coming off Ivy League championships in both football and basketball, where the Crimson made their first trip to the NCAA tournament since 1946 last season, going 26-4 under Amaker. Casey averaged more than 11 points per game, a team high and more than five rebounds. Curry averaged almost 8 points a game. Amaker, a former Duke star, came to Harvard in 2007 from Michigan, where he was charged with cleaning up that program after years of scandal. The Crimson, citing an email it obtained from

his wife, Ginnie, and her sister, to Logan Airport in Boston, where they were to fly to Chicago. Instead, the flight was diverted to Ottowa, Canada, and it was several hours before she could contact him. Those hours of what he called “anguish” paled in comparison to the suffering of those whose relatives never were seen again. That was the experience of Ralph Ascoli, whose sister worked on the 93rd floor of the North Tower. “My sister was a vibrant young woman, a new wife, a new mother.” Ascoli told the crowd, “not to be sad, my sister wouldn’t be sad.” Instead, he told those in attendance to to go on with their lives and hold dear the memories of those lost.

Jeannie Forrester, state senator, invoked the words of the late Carl Johnson, who spoke at an event two years after the terrorist attacks. “Since 9-11, much has been said about how easy it can be to get caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. As Americans, we are far more likely to be in the right place at the right time.” Forrester, recalling Johnson’s address, reminded the crowd that the best reaction to such an attack was to make America a stronger place, such as by volunteering with a service organization, or by lending a hand to a neighbor. Forrester said, “The terrorists might have hit their intended targets, but they missed America.”

John Ellison, the Secretary of the Administrative Board, said athletes involved were being asked to weigh potential Ivy League eligibility issues when deciding whether or not to remain on campus for the fall term. Typically, if a player takes part in athletic compe-

tition before being asked to take a leave of absence by the board, the player loses a full season of Ivy League eligibility, the newspaper reported. “Fall-term athletes may also want to consider taking (a leave) before their first game,” Ellison wrote in the email, according to the Crimson.

Gordon-Nash Library hosting retirement party for Director Linda Dowal on Saturday NEW HAMPTON — The Gordon-Nash Library in New Hampton, invites the public to the retirement party for Library Director Linda Dowal recognizing her many years of service to the library. There will be an Open House on Saturday, September 15 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the library. Linda Dowal. (Courtesy photo) Dowal started working at the Gordon-Nash Library in 1986 as a parttime library assistant. Over the years she has taken on many different roles including Children’s Librarian and Assistant Director before becoming the Library Director 12-years ago. During her time at the library she has organized children’s story hours, adult book discussion groups,

summer reading programs and has helped serve the many patrons of the library. Trudy Powers, one of the library’s trustees said “Linda is a dedicated and loyal manager who has given countless effort and hours of service to the library”. Over the years Ms. Dowal has seen many changes at the library, the biggest being to the technology being used. When she started at Gordon-Nash, books had paper cards that patrons signed to check them out. Linda helped to facilitate the change over from the paper card catalog to the computerized system in place today. When asked about her accomplishments as director she simply commented that it was a team effort. She said she only accomplished the things she did because the rest of library staff helped out. She said she is looking forward to retirement; relaxing, watching her grandchildren and finally downloading some books onto her Kindle.

Angela Ouellette Mailloux, 90 LACONIA — Angela Ouellette Mailloux, 90, died peacefully at her home after a long illness on Sunday, September 9, 2012. Angela, Angie to her friends, moved to Laconia in 1960 with her husband, Roland (Rollie) Mailloux, and their six daughters. They moved to the Laconia area when they purchased Labbe Oil Company and quickly made the town their home and lived in the same house for more than 50 years. Their home on Pleasant Street was often filled with family and friends and at Angie’s house everyone was always welcome. Her love of cooking easily translated into her cooking for everyone who came through the door, she also had a vegetable garden that she enjoyed tending and sharing her produce with all that stopped by. Her love of baking led her to sending to hundreds of packages of her cookies to friends and family regardless of where they were living, often sending packages to the farthest corners of the world. Angela was a woman who had a keen intellect, her school years were spent skipping grades and graduating high school just after her 16th birthday. She had an uncommon ability to remember numbers, making her a formidable card player. She also enjoyed the challenge of a good crossword puzzle. As an adult, she learned to ski, sail and swim, loving all three. For many years she and Rollie traveled the U.S. and Canada skiing. She was able to

enjoy the sport well into ther 80s, with her family by her side. She loved supporting her daughters and husband’s ski racing and was very involved with the Gunstock Ski Club. Another love was spending time at her duaghter’s homes in Maine and summers on the dock at the Winnipesaukee Yacht Club. She was a loving wife to her husband, a supportive mother to her children, a generous memere to her grand-children and a one of a kind super-merere to her great-grandchildren; she will be missed by all.

Lakes Region Mutual Fire Aid celebrating 60th Anniversary Sept. 29

LACONIA — The Lakes Region Mutual Fire Aid Association is celebrating the 60th anniversary of its establishment in the Lakes Region area. Currently serving 35 communities in four counties, fire chiefs in Laconia and surrounding communities began organizing in 1951 to provide mutual assistance in fire protection. In 1971 the organization formed the Lakes Region Fire Dispatch Center and later opened the Lakes Region Mutual Fire Aid Association Communications Center in Laconia. Celebration of these milestones of improving public safety will be held on Saturday, September 29 at the Granite Media Center in Tilton, with a banquet, static displays of fire apparatus, new and old, and audio-visual programs chronicling the history of the Association. Tickets for the event are $25 per person and are available at any fire station or by contacting the Communications Center at 528-9111. The event is open to the public. Originally operated out of the Laconia Central Fire Station, a modern, fire dispatching service was opened at the Belknap County Courthouse in 1971. The Association organized the Lakes Region Mutual Fire Aid Association Communications Center at 62 Communications Drive in Laconia in 2000. The facilities at the new center allowed the Association to improve its training opportunities for firefighters in system communities to include firefighting certification courses as well as rescue and safety. Additional information is available by contacting Chief Jim Hayes or Deputy Chief John Beland at 528-9111

Planning for celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Lakes Region Mutual Fire Aid Association and the 40th anniversary of the Lakes Region Fire Dispatch Center on Sept. 29 at the Granite Media Center in Tilton is underway.

A closer look: paintings by Kathi J. Smith at New Hampton School’s Galletly Gallery NEW HAMPTON — New Hampton School’s Galletly Gallery is featuring e works by Plymouth artist Kathi J. Smith through October 5 and will hold a reception for the artist on Friday, September 14, at 5:30 p.m., followed by an artist talk at 7 p.m. “The landscape contains a wealth of information that I am constantly attempting to organize,” Kathi Smith writes in her artist statement. “ I seek complicated spaces with an abundance of information and consider it my task as an artist to find order in such places. The places I select to work often involve a union of man-made structure and nature. These motifs are both chaotic and dense but have moments of order and legibility. I am interested in the in-between spaces, often beyond the subject




itself. These are the places I am not sure people take the time to notice, but I am captivated within them for hours. “These works are records of places where I have spent significant amount of time over the last 4 years. The immediacy to the subject matter is important to me and I think of the works as records of this time spent getting to know a place. Made on site in the en plein air tradition, I find myself trying to capture the fleeting experiences I have in any single space.” Ms. Smith is currently an adjunct faculty at both Plymouth State University and the New Hampshire Technical Institute. Her work has been represented extensively in both solo and group exhibitions throughout New England for the last decade.

PSU opens faculty art exhibitions with reception today PLYMOUTH — The annual Plymouth State University Faculty Exhibition at the Karl Drerup Art Gallery, and a collection of paintings of Buddha by Virginia Peck at the Silver Center for the Arts are on exhibition. The Plymouth State University Faculty Exhibition for the 2012-2013 opened on Sept. 4 and will continue through Sept. 29. An opening reception will be held on Wedneday, Sept. 12 from 4-6 p.m. at the Drerup Gallery in the Draper and Maynard Building on North Main Street, in Plymouth. Gallery hours for this exhibit are Monday–Friday, 10 a.m.–4 p.m., Wednesday 10 a.m.–8 p.m. and Saturday 1–4 p.m. For more information regarding the Faculty Exhibition call 535-2614. In addition to the Faculty Exhibition, the Faces of the Buddha exhibition will be opening on Sept. 17 at the Silver Center for the Arts. This exhibition will be on display through Oct. 19. The Faces of Buddha exhibition presents a series of paintings that have been inspired by the beautifully worn surfaces of ancient Buddha statues. Weathered bronze, stone and wood hint at the cycle of decay and rebirth, impermanence and change, while embodying the serene and timeless nature of Buddha, according to artist Virginia Peck. “Rather than recreate a dead, lifeless statue, I seek to depict the Buddha’s energy and spirit, reflecting how the spirit of his teachings are alive for us today. And most important, I attempt to convey the idea that beneath the chaotic pace of our modern lives there exists the potential for inner peace and transcendence,” Peck says. “Whether Buddhist or not, viewers have said that they respond to the timeless and iconic quality of these images.” Silver Center gallery hours are Monday–Friday, 8 a.m.–5 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, noon–5 p.m. The Silver Center is closed most holidays.

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis home and family take priority over your other interests. Work can wait. The time constraints and stressors are illusory. Don’t buy in. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It’s normal, but not helpful, to come at financial issues from an emotional place. Pay what you can really afford and not a penny more. Finding the right number will require thought as well as accounting. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There’s a boisterous quality to the day. Loved ones bombard you when you want peace. But it’s nice to know that you’re needed, and ultimately, it feels good to help. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). An active social life involves choices. Which invitations should you accept? Though you can think of excellent reasons to accept certain offers, in the end, you’ll go where you’re likely to have the most fun. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You go into an arrangement with an idealistic notion of what to expect. But just because a scenario isn’t perfect doesn’t mean it won’t be of value to you. Consider saying “yes” just for the experience. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 12). After years of struggle, your life is shaping into the life you want. You’ll be more able to command yourself, and you’ll establish new patterns over the next 10 weeks. A joint effort brings praise and money in October. In 2013, an unforgettable experience happens when you apply a special talent of yours. Aries and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 45, 2, 39, 20 and 12.


ARIES (March 21-April 19). Most people value what they work hard to get. Where hard work is not necessary, the perceived value drops. Keeping this in mind, make someone work for your attention. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Sometimes you stumble upon joy; other times you have to create it. Today brings a mixed bag. Initially, you won’t have to look for happiness; it will find you, which will inspire you to hunt down more of it. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You look for the good in every situation. Usually, you can find it, but sometimes the good is just not there. That’s when you know it’s up to you to inject some. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll share what you know, and others will educate you, as well. Note that friendly sharing is always gentle. You’re mindful to gift information, not bludgeon people with it. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Spotlight stealers abound. They just don’t realize that the show is where you are. But everyone else does. Stay eventempered and go about your business. Eventually, the attention returns to you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The day is rife with sticky situations, innuendo and dicey exchanges. Surrender the management of relationships to the universe, and believe that you were meant for the goodness that will follow. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). No matter how it may seem, the one in charge of your destiny is still you. When others appear to hold all of the cards, grab the dice and run. Start your own game. No one can tell you what to play. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You want to excel professionally. However,

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, September 12, 2012— Page 19

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Wednesday, Sept. 12, the 256th day of 2012. There are 110 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 12, 1942, during World War II, a German U-boat off West Africa torpedoed the RMS Laconia, which was carrying Italian prisoners of war, British soldiers and civilians. The German crew, joined by other U-boats, began rescue operations. (On Sept. 16, the rescue effort came to an abrupt halt when the Germans were attacked by a U.S. Army bomber; some 1,600 people died while more than 1,100 survived. As a result, U-boat commanders were ordered to no longer rescue civilian survivors of submarine attacks.) On this date: In 1814, the Battle of North Point took place in Maryland during the War of 1812 as American forces slowed the advance of British troops on Baltimore. In 1846, Elizabeth Barrett secretly married Robert Browning at St. Marylebone Church in London. In 1910, Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 8, popularly known as the “Symphony of a Thousand,” had its premiere in Munich, Germany, with Mahler conducting. In 1943, German paratroopers took Benito Mussolini from the hotel where he was being held by the Italian government. In 1953, Massachusetts Sen. John F. Kennedy married Jacqueline Lee Bouvier in Newport, R.I. In 1960, Democratic presidential candidate John F. Kennedy addressed questions about his Roman Catholic faith, telling a Southern Baptist group, “I do not speak for my church on public matters, and the church does not speak for me.” In 1977, South African black student leader Steve Biko (BEE’-koh) died while in police custody, triggering an international outcry. In 1986, Joseph Cicippio, the acting comptroller at the American University in Beirut, was kidnapped (he was released in Dec. 1991). In 1992, the space shuttle Endeavour blasted off, carrying with it Mark Lee and Jan Davis, the first married couple in space; Mae Jemison, the first black woman in space; and Mamoru Mohri, the first Japanese national to fly on a U.S. spaceship. One year ago: Texas Gov. Rick Perry, the perceived front-runner in the Republican presidential contest, endured an onslaught from seven rivals during a fractious two-hour debate in Tampa, Fla. Today’s Birthdays: Actor Dickie Moore (“Our Gang”) is 87. Actor Freddie Jones is 85. Country singer George Jones is 81. Actor Ian Holm is 81. Actress Linda Gray is 72. Singer Maria Muldaur is 70. Actor Joe Pantoliano is 61. Singer-musician Gerry Beckley is 60. Rock musician Neil Peart is 60. Actor Peter Scolari is 57. Actress Rachel Ward is 55. Actress Amy Yasbeck is 50. Rock musician Norwood Fisher (Fishbone) is 47. Actor Darren E. Burrows is 46. Rock singer-musician Ben Folds (Ben Folds Five) is 46. Actor-comedian Louis (loo-ee) C.K. is 45. Rock musician Larry LaLonde (Primus) is 44. Actor Josh Hopkins is 42. Actor Paul Walker is 39. Country singer Jennifer Nettles (Sugarland) is 38. Actor Ben McKenzie is 34.

Page 20 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, September 12, 2012


Dear Annie: My wife’s sister and her husband moved in with my mother-in-law 30 years ago. Mom was the sole caregiver until age limited her ability, and then government aid allowed for home assistance. Mom supported them while my brother-in-law spent every dime on alcohol and toys. When Mom died two years ago, my sister-in-law ended up in a nursing home. My brother-in-law is in bankruptcy and has done nothing to plan for his wife’s needs. My wife owns the house, although there is a lien on it from the state because of the aid my sister-in-law received. My wife and I cannot manage the responsibility or expense of maintaining the home, and we’d like to sell it and pay back the state. Four months ago, we informed my brother-in-law that we will be putting it up for sale. But he has not moved out. In fact, he says his lawyer told him he can drag it out for a year. As bad as my brother-in-law is, I still feel some compassion for him, although I do not feel we are responsible for him. His bad decisions and inability to plan are his own fault. I have held onto the letter informing him to vacate the house. I need help with licking the stamp so we can move on. -- C. Dear C.: You can hire a lawyer to have your brother-in-law evicted more quickly, but it sounds as if you are reluctant to do that. However, unless you are willing to let him stay indefinitely, you both are only postponing the inevitable. Talk to your brother-in-law calmly, and find out what his future plans are. Ask how you can help him move into more manageable accommodations. Suggest he contact AA ( Do as much as you can to ease your conscience, but understand that there is only so much you can do if your brother-in-law is unwilling to help himself. Dear Annie: I’d like to see my children wait until marriage before having sex, but I realize that probably will not happen.

I want to be able to advise my children correctly, so here are my questions: What is the age of consent? And if two 15-yearolds are intimate and caught, are both punished the same? Under the current system, a 17-year-old boy could have consensual sex with his 15-year-old girlfriend and go to jail. The boy is branded for life as a sex offender. I think these laws are outdated and need to be modified. -- Ellen in Florida Dear Ellen: The age of consent varies by state and falls somewhere between 16 and 18. You can find this information on the Internet simply by typing “age of consent by state” into your search engine. The punishment also varies by state and depends on the age of the older partner, the age of the younger partner, the number of years between them, etc. The underage partner is not punished, and if both kids are 15, neither is punished unless there was coercion. These laws were intended to protect children from predatory adults, although we agree that a distinction should be made for teenagers who have consensual sex with their boyfriends and girlfriends. Until then, however, please be sure your children understand the risks and urge them to be careful. Dear Annie: The letter from “Sad Wife” resonated with me. For years, my husband could not hold a decent job. I realized, after he was fired from his last job, that I didn’t believe in him. When he asked me, with tears in his eyes, whether I would divorce him, I decided to have complete faith. From that point forward, I truly believed he would be successful. I stayed positive, encouraging and kept him motivated. Within months, he had two amazing job offers. Now he has a great career, and our relationship is stronger than ever. Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you are right. -- Proud Wife
