Thanks to BNH, Gilford Village Knolls can now buy library lot By Gail OBer
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
GILFORD — Bank of New Hampshire has donated $10,000 to the Gilford Village Knolls Phase 3 project. It will be used to purchase the land from the town for the future construction of 24 low-income senior housing units. According to Paul Stewart, the manager of the existing Village Knolls buildings,
BNH has also agreed to finance the balance of the $110,000 that the Knolls needs to pay so that the Friends of the Gilford Library organization can exit the scene. “The town sent the signal that this would be the last extension (given to the Village Knolls to purchase the land from the town),” said Stewart. “(The town) really needs to do something with this land.” He also said the Knolls has some money
from donations and would not be borrowing the entire $100,000 balance. “Bank of New Hampshire’s very generous $10,000 contribution will help the trustees to purchase the land and reach their objective of offering safe and affordable housing for Lakes Region seniors,” stated Tony Ferruolo, president of the Trustees for Gilford Village Knolls. see VILLaGE KNOLLs page 10
St. Clair has his wheelchair back
Never miss a chance to break out the horn

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — While most area Republican’s don’t have much to say about GOP Senate leadership asking District 7 candidate Josh Youssef to clear up some questions about his campaign, at least one of his local supporters is downright angry. Vocal Youssef supporter and local radio talk show host Niel Young of “The Advocates” said yesterday that he was “ripping mad at the party’s elite Republicans” saying he “will haunt them for the next two years” if they go after his candidate. “I’m thinking, what’s (Senator) Jeb Bradley (of Wolfeboro) got to do with District 7 anyway?,” Young said yesterday. Young’s remarks come in the wake of Senate President Peter Bragdon and Bradley’s recent meeting with Youssef and their desire to have him explain what, if any, role he had in a last-minute mailer embossed with a “sticky note” from see yOussEF page 12

LACONIA — Almost a week to the day after it was stolen, the wheelchair belonging to Charlie St. Clair was was found Thursday in undergrowth behind the Subway outlet on Union Avenue and taken to the police station. St. Clair, the executive director of the Laconia Motorcycle Week Association, suffered severe injuries to his left leg and right hand when the motorcycle he was riding to the annual mega-rally in Sturgis, South Dakota struck a deer in Nebraska. After undergoing surgery and recovery at Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney, he returned with the wheelchair, valued at $2,300, that disappeared from the porch of his home on Messer Street a week ago yesterday. St. Clair said yesterday that he did not yet know who discovered the wheelchair, but expressed his appreciation. “There are no words to describe how happy I am to have my chair back.” He said when the police called with a description of the wheelchair, he knew at once it see st.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Economic growth is pitiful. Unemployment has topped 8 percent for an exhausting 43 months. The nation is careering toward a socalled fiscal cliff, and maybe a recession. So why is the Dow Jones industrial average, that trusty gauge of corporate America’s strength, just 4 percent shy of an all-time record? And why are the smaller public companies measured by the Russell 2000 index almost there already? Start with two words: Ben Bernanke. Bernanke, the Federal Reserve chairman, this week announced unprecedented measures aimed at lifting the sagging economy — and boosting the prices of assets like stocks and houses. The market rallied all summer in anticipation of such a move. The Fed made an open-ended promise to purchase $40 billion a month in mortgage bonds and said it will keep interest rates low through 2015, even if the economy starts to improve. The announcement set off a two-day rally see STOCKS page 28

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A Wisconsin judge on Friday struck down nearly all of the state law championed by Gov. Scott Walker that effectively ended collective bargaining rights for most public workers. Walker’s administration immediately vowed to appeal, while unions, which have vigorously fought the law, declared victory. But what the ruling meant for existing public contracts was murky: Unions claimed the ruling meant they could nego-
tiate again, but Walker could seek to keep the law in effect while the legal drama plays out. The law, a crowning achievement for Walker that made him a national conservative star, took away nearly all collective bargaining rights from most workers and has been in effect for more than a year. Dane County Circuit Judge Juan Colas ruled that the law violates both the state and U.S. Constitution and is null and void.
In his 27-page ruling, the judge said sections of the law “single out and encumber the rights of those employees who choose union membership and representation solely because of that association and therefore infringe upon the rights of free speech and association guaranteed by both the Wisconsin and United States Constitutions.” Colas also said the law violates the equal protection clause by creating separate see WISCONSIN page 13
CHICAGO (AP) — The city’s nearly weeklong teachers strike appeared headed toward a resolution Friday after negotiators emerged from marathon talks to say they had achieved a “framework” that could end the walkout in time for students
to return to class Monday. Both sides were careful not to describe the deal as a final agreement and declined to release the terms. They expected to spend the weekend working out details before union delegates are asked to vote on
whether to call off the walkout, probably on Sunday. School Board President David Vitale said the “heavy lifting” was over after long hours of talks placed “frameworks around see CHICAGO page 5

Blurry photos of topless Kate has Britain fuming
LONDON (AP) — Paparazzi, French media and a British royal: The publication of topless photos of Prince William’s wife Kate has reunited the same players whose clash ended with the untimely death of his mother, Princess Diana, in a Parisian car crash. William, who has long harbored a grudge against the paparazzi who chased Diana in the days and hours leading up to her 1997 death, was clearly infuriated. The royal couple hit back with an immediate lawsuit against the popular French gossip magazine Closer, which is owned by former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi’s Mondadori publishing empire. The blurry photos, called a “grotesque” abuse of privacy by royal officials, show Kate — the Duchess of Cambridge — wearing only a skimpy bikini bottom. They are the first to show Britain’s likely future queen with her bosom exposed. St. James’s Palace officials sharply criticized the magazine moments after the photos hit French newsstands, comparing the intrusion on the young couple’s privacy to the tragic paparazzi pursuit of Diana, which many believe was a contributing factor in her early death on Aug. 31, 1997. The parallels between the past and the present were eerie. Diana was hounded by paparazzi who took telephoto shots of her vacationing on a yacht with her boyfriend Dodi and tailed them relentlessly in Paris. Earlier this month, a photographer with a similar long lens captured Kate and William relaxing in the sun at a private estate in Provence, a vacation spot near the French Riviera. Instead of challenging the authenticity of the blurry photos, palace officials said they appear genuine — and should never have been taken, much less published. “The incident is reminiscent of the worst excesses of the press and paparazzi during the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, and all the more upsetting to the Duke and Duchess for being so,” a St. James’s Palace official in London said in a statement. The British media — chastened by a deep scandal over phone hacking and other misdeeds — all shied away from using the photos. That restraint came even though Rupert Murdoch’s The Sun tabloid is famed for its daily “Page 3” topless shots. The photos, which were not available on English see KATE page 13

Winnipesaukee Playhouse celebrates theater construction milestone in Meredith By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
MEREDITH — A large gathering of supporters of the Winnipesaukee Playhouse were on hand Friday morning to watch a giant crane lift a 105-foot long, 20,000 pound piece of steel to the top of what will become the Playhouse’s new 184-seat theater next year. The event was billed as a beam signing and lifting ceremony, even though Randy Remick, president of Bonnette, Page and Stone Corporation, would later tell the audience that technically it was really a truss girder, not a beam. But that small distinction didn’t make a bit of difference to the 70 or so people gathered at the ceremony, which brings the Playhouse closer to its goal of opening its new state-of-the-art theatre next spring. ‘’This is wonderful. It’s going to be so great to have all the operations in the complex here,’’ said Barbara Morgenstern of Gilford, a member of the Playhouse’s board of trustees. She said that the Playhouse’s lease for its current home, the 84-seat theatre at the Alpenrose Plaza in Weirs Beach, runs out at the end of the year and the company’s last productions there will take place later this year. Christopher Boothby, chair of the Winni Playhouse board of directors, said that the Playhouse had reached Friday’s milestone thanks to the community support it has developed over the last eight years.

New LHS building to be weather tight by Christmas By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — Chris Umer of Lavallee Brensinger Architects and Chad Montrose of Rist-Frost Shumway Engineering told the High School Joint Building Committee yesterday that work on the renovation and expansion of the Huot Regional Technical Education Center was proceeding on schedule. With colder weather on its way, the replacement of the boilers and roofs in the high school itself, including the installing the installation of new skylights, is nearly complete. Once the roofing is finished, the HVAC system can be put in place, most likely by late October or early November. Umer said that the foundation of the new 32,000-square-foot addition, which will house the culinary program and restaurant along with other programs, should be in place by the end of next week and the steel for the skeleton of the building will arrive next month. By Christmas the building should be weather-tight. Both the interior construction and exterior masonry work will proceed throughout the winter, he said. During the next 60 days much of the work will be concentrated on the new addition. Scott Davis , career and technical education director at the Huot Center, said that two of the four new lifts have been installed in the automotive department and from preceding page 84-seat theater started with a professional summer stock season, and then continued with community theater and children’s theater during the rest of the year. In 2008, Hidden Green LLC, investors in the Winni Playhouse, purchased the Annalee Dolls factory site for 1.05 million dollars. The Playhouse is renovating the property to create a “Tanglewood type of setting” to perform theater and other endeavors in. The Playhouse has won numerous NH Theatre awards and in 2009 it was selected by New Hampshire Magazine as the best professional theater in New Hampshire.
“computer numerical control” (CNC) machine tools for the manufacturing department have arrived. Meanwhile, City Councilor Matt Lahey (Ward 2), who is chairing the fund raising campaign to supplement the state, federal and municipal funding for the $16.8-million project with private contributions of cash and in kind help, said that the fundraising effort has been “very successful.” EFI, best known locally as Vutek of Meredith, which supplies digital print products, has prepared approximately ten-foot by twelve-foot images of both the new addition to the high school and the reconfigured playing fields. Both will be displayed on Union Avenue to offer the community a vision of the completed project. Asked how much money has been raised since the $1-million drive began this summer, Lahey replied “we’re looking ahead, not looking back.” CHICAGO from page one all the major issues.” Union President Karen Lewis agreed, saying there were no “main sticking points right now.” But she reiterated that there is also no contract yet and the strike remains in full effect. Despite the apparent progress, she said, the union is still suspicious of the board after being burned in the past. The walkout has been a potent display of union power at a time when organized labor has been losing ground around the nation. The negotiations have been closely followed by many other unions and school districts that face the same issues about the future of urban education, particularly teacher evaluations linked to student test scores and the threat of school closures. In a statement, Mayor Rahm Emanuel said the framework “is an honest and principled compromise” that “preserves more time for learning in the classroom, provides more support teachers to excel at their craft and gives principals the latitude and responsibility to build an environment in which our children can succeed.”

THE GIFT OF LIFE
Let’s face it there are those who believe in the value of Life Insurance and those who either don’t understand its value or are just not fans of purchasing it. My experience is that there is usually no middle ground. But one of the main reasons people don’t by Life Insurance is lack of knowledge. Many people put off buying Life Insurance because they simply lack the knowledge to make an informed decision. Now what happens is no insurance gets purchased and the family is not going to benefit from the insurance policies death benefit proceeds. In my opinion Life Insurance is the most important insurance you can purchase. WHY? If you are a “stand-up” human being you care about the people you love. Family members need to have replacement dollars if you should perish. If you truly love your family you don’t let them suffer under the weight of bills, and expenses associated with living. The cost of Life Insurance is relatively inexpensive if you purchase a basic term life policy. This cost effective premium gives your loved ones the ability to survive in a standard of living they are accustomed to. Unfortunately, many people today don’t understand or cannot look at their own mortality and rationalize that life insurance is necessary to maintain their families way of life lieu of the loss of the loss of their own life. I have been selling Life Insurance for nearly 25 years and I have delivered many checks to survivors and they always thank me graciously and our relieved to find out they are taken care of. In fact I am always one of the first notified outside of the family when a loved ones’ loss occurs. Let me tell you it’s all business when a family member dies and the life insurance is the most important question on the minds of the beneficiaries. How to Buy it There are five functional talking points and or decision points associated with purchasing an insurance policy, let’s review them. Force yourself to think about it: I know thinking about death is tough and actually making an appointment to talk to your advisor is even tougher, but you must do this for the sake of your family. It’s a tough mental roadblock to punch through but you are the loving and caring family member and that’s what real leaders do! Figure out your needs: Ask the tough questions. Talk to your broker or advisor about what you want and need out of a policy. It’s important for you (consumer) to understand what you want out of a policy. For example, do you want term life or permanent life insurance. Your advisor can explain the difference and help you make an informed decision. Purchase the life insurance from someone you trust: You may already be working with someone you trust, ask them for their expert advice. If they don’t know, find someone that does. Have more than one meeting: The first meeting you have with a broker should strictly be question and answer. Think about what you want, what they recommend, and do you trust this person. If you do, buy a policy at a later meeting. It’s important to get it right. Your advisor should be asking good questions as they should be concise and specific to your concerns. Make life adjustments as needed: Think about your life, where are you headed, what are your goals and objectives. Financial triggers and familiar life events are significant in the life insurance purchase decision. Remember, and this is important, as life changes your needs change, make sure you are working with a reliable advisor so changes can be made accordingly.

Romney doubles down on energy stupidity Poor Mitt Romney. He keeps trying to prop up his bad policy proposals with gimmicky political props that flop. He recently unveiled his energy policy, for example, in Hobbs, N.M., rather than in ExxonMobil’s boardroom, which is the only place his oil-soaked proposal would actually receive genuine, full-throated huzzahs. But a group of hip-hip-hooraying fat-cats in suits is not quite the down-home, regular-guy image that Mr. Multimillionaire is presently trying to project to voters. Thus, like a flimflam man pitching snake oil, Romney set up an outdoor stage in front of an oil rig in Hobbs, and a local industry chieftain assembled an audience of workers in hard hats to be his regular-guy props. To add to the hype, he had a chart with a bar graph onstage with him, supposedly to give a smear of credibility to his wondrous claims. However, the chart was too small for the audience to see, plus the wind kept threatening to blow it off the stage. No problem, though — Romney just faked it. “On the left hand side,” he flimmed and flammed, “you see a bar there that represents, you can’t read the writing, it’s too far back, but I can read it ... so I’m going to tell you what it says.” Then he concluded with: “As you can see” — even though people could not see it. It was perfect PR puffery. Only, it didn’t work. As he pitched a policy that literally had been written by Big Oil drillers, frackers and pipeliners, his audience of hard hats looked on in bafflement. It was as though they were watching a rich financier and buddy of the bosses trying to sell them a pig in a poke — which is exactly what they were selling. Romney failed to mention it during his show-and-tell flimflam routine, but on his way to Hobbs, he stopped in Texas, where he picked up a cool $7-million from oil executives at an industry fundraiser. Now that’s the genuine Mitt. And speaking of oil executives, past and current, pro-oil energy policy promoter Dick Cheney is known to snarl more than he smiles, but the former VP and ex-oil executive must be grinning from ear to
ear now that Mitt has issued his energy plan. By “his,” I mean Cheney’s — the one he drafted in secrecy with a cabal of industry chieftains a decade ago. They couldn’t get all of their agenda enacted, however, so imagine their excitement over Romney’s recent proposal, which out-Cheneys Cheney. In a breathtaking surrender of America’s energy future to Big Oil profiteers, Romney revives the maniacal fervor of the “drill, baby, drill” crowd, pushes “fracking” with a vengeance, runs the filthy Keystone XL pipeline right through the heart of America, zeros-out federal tax credits for wind and solar alternatives to oil, and maintains the $4-billion-a-year subsidy for oil corporations — among other giveaways. Then he doubles down on energy stupidity by undoing Teddy Roosevelt’s logical decision that our national lands should be under the control of ... well, national policymakers. Instead, capitulating to industry’s wildest dream, Romney would cede control over drilling and mining on nationally owned public land to the various states, most of which are run by industry-coddling, corporate-financed politicians. It’s like asking a coyote to guard your last lamb chop! Who wrote this “plan”? Harold Hamm, for one. CEO of Continental Resources, an oil and gas fracking corporation, this Oklahoma billionaire chairs Romney’s energy advisory committee. A campaign aide insists that Hamm and other industry executives (who showered Romney with over $10 million in campaign funds in August alone) were allowed to write the policy not as payback, but “simply to tap their expertise.” Uh-huh. Expertise at serving their own interests, our national interest be damned. (Jim Hightower has been called American’s most popular populist. The radio commentator and former Texas Commissioner of Agriculture is author of seven books, including “There’s Nothing In the Middle of Road but Yellow Stripes and Dead Armadillos” and his new work, “Swim Against the Current: Even Dead Fish Can Go With The Flow”.)
President Obama’s plan is to build America from the middle out To the editor, The Democratic National Convention has crystallized the choice the American people have between President Obama’s vision for moving America forward toward an economy built to last and Mitt Romney’s plan to go back to the failed policies of the past. Mitt Romney’s plan would raise taxes on the middle class and turn Medicare into a voucher system all to pay for more tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires. It’s the same formula that crashed our economy in the first
President Obama has a vision for an economy built from the middle out, not the top down. His plan cuts taxes for the middle class and asks the wealthiest to pay their fair share so we can reduce the deficit in a balanced way and invest in things like education, energy, and infrastructure. It’s a plan that will grow the economy and the middle class. I’m supporting the re-election of Barack Obama as our president. I hope you will too. Lynn Thomas
LETTERS Jesus’s basic message of love has been loaded up with garbage To the editor, William McCoy’s nice, interesting letter in page 8 of September 13 Daily Sun seems to show the problem we have with “religion” in politics. As he illustrates, one can search the bible (old, new, various translations, etc) and find almost anything you want, but what he misses is that the Bible is nothing but the word of MAN! I’m sorry to disillusion you, but wonderful things you dream have little to do with reality. If you have studied the Bible as I have, you know that most claims of God talking to them came during a dream, after or during terribly disturbing events. Contrast that to the events of Jesus’s life and reported sayings. Not from dreams, but from memory of 80 years prior to first writings. Back 2000 to 6000 years ago accurate written records were rare. Only many years after an event happened, and the results were being observed, did anyone write about it. Clearly the unusualness of Jesus teaching LOVE and forgiveness made an intense impression, and that important message continues to today, although loaded with additional garbage, restrictions, and tall tales added by various churches along the way. It is the false useless misguided additions which turn many away from churches and religion, to claim being an atheist, rather than an agnostic.
Marriage and abortion are only vaguely connected to religion by wishful thinking, yet somehow become dominating factors in politics, claimed to come from religion. The wonderful Constitution came from the minds of fair and honest men, largely to protect us from the known abuse of “religion”. Prior to that the dominate form of government was some form of dictatorship (such as kings), as Obama is trying for. Most religions are neutral or helpful, with the exception of the Muslims. Mohammed’s pseudo religion was supposedly based on The New Testament (Christianity), but really based on his CLAIMS to having dreams in which “God” gave HIM permission to act out his lust. He knew it was fake, and thus to protect others, put in his Koran that “nothing can be added or subtracted from this, Koran and the prophecy ends forever when I die”. But, when Mohammed died his cousins, Shiites and Sunnis, each claimed the prophetic power, and have been at war with each other and the world ever since, with their war of hatred and destruction. I personally accept what we know as the teachings of Jesus Christ, but can’t accept distortions from most churches. Many churches, such as the Gilford Community Church accept everyone, and I feel I belong there. Jack Stephenson Gilford
I find prospect of Romney/Ryan plan for Medicare to be scary To the editor, A few days ago the Federal Reserve Bank announced that it would sell $18-billion of America International Group (AIG) insurance company stock. This is a reminder that the Fed loaned $80-billion to AIG in 2008 to keep it from failing to meet its financial obligations and causing a disaster in the financial markets. AIG had taken the money it received in premiums and invested it in bundles of subprime mortgages, a get-rich-quick scheme done by many other insurance providers and financial institutions in the under regulated marketplace. The Ryan-Romney plan for Medi-
care is to issue citizens grants with which they can buy health care insurance on the open market. I find this prospect scary. If the Republicans gain control of government, there will be less regulation of insurance providers. Insurance providers will be able to find new get-richquick schemes and risk bankruptcy. If someday I need treatment for a major illness, I hope I won’t be told that I’ll have to wait in line with the provider’s other creditors to find out whether my treatment can be paid for. Or wait for another government bail out. John S. Allen Laconia

LETTERS Does air not exist because I can’t see it? How about radio waves?
Dems agree with principal that child developing in womb is not a life
To the editor, Mr. Veverka, in reference to you letter in The Sun, I have a couple of thoughts for you: Polls stating that the majority of Americans believe in same sex marriage. . .well regardless of who takes the poll, they are not accurate to suggest as a whole it is the thought of ALL Americans. Theses polls, Gallop etc, are the results of the people they polled, usually about 1000 people, Which, by far is not even a minuscule amount of Americans. They are normally done demographically and l’m sure the thoughts and beliefs of one area of this country can vary greatly from another. If they had done that poll in the area of the “Bible Belt” do you think they would have had the same outcome? In actuality, those polls shouldn’t even be allowed to be printed, but hey if it helps out one cause or another, let’s say its HALF of Americans. . . wake up. Your comment of Jesus of Nazareth as mythology mixed with primi-
To the editor, Approximately half the people who read this will not like what I have to say. Some will become quite angry. Most are in for a surprise. This subject is a polarizing issue that has up until now been only lightly debated but will heat up as the national elections draw nearer. When the issue of abortion is considered, many express passionate views on both sides, but also to many it has become a “society norm” and a nonissue. I have discussed this an untold number of times with “pro-lifers” and with those who espouse “choice.” I have also discussed it with those who simply do not care. Almost to a person, people know basically that Roe v. Wade was a Supreme Court decision that by case law permits the practice of abortion in the United States. But I have discovered over time that basic knowledge beyond that escapes most people. Most cannot name the date of the decision, what the decision permitted and did not permit, who Roe is, what happened to her, and most of all, what is Doe vs. Bolton, what did it mean, and who on earth is Doe? Even almost all of the fanatic “choicers” I encountered did not know what I was talking about. They did not know the basics of what they were fanatic about. It gets worse. At the Democratic National Convention, the speakers and the party platform unabashedly endorsed unrestricted abortion on demand including the current model for federal funding to providers. They repeatedly mentioned Roe as the model that enables their agenda. Incredibly, but not surprisingly, no mention of Doe. Not even a whisper. The truth is that Roe does not and cannot satisfy the full reach of the hard line “choicers.” Read on. Roe and Doe were sister cases decided simultaneously in 1973. Jane Roe is Norma McCorvey and she did not abort her child. A darling of the abortion movement and outspoken for the cause, she had a Christian conversion and now speaks adamantly against the practice. Her views are movingly portrayed in a DVD entitled, “I Was Wrong”. She filed a lawsuit to have Roe overturned and the court papers had over 10,000 affidavits from women attesting to the various harmful effects associated with abortion. Case dismissed, of course. Roe vs. Wade petitioned ONLY for first trimester abortions. The court voluntarily extended the period up to a VAGUE viability. This was moot because the ruling for Doe vs. Bolton was handed down on the same day, enabling the court’s agenda to include abortion up to and including the termination of a fully formed third trimester child
tive beliefs of time . . . Jesus never existed because why, you didn’t see him? What the heck, it’s amazing the Modem Worldwide Standard of Time is BC and AD, since he didn’t exist. It’s amazing air exists, I can’t see it. I can’t see anti matter, sound, radio waves, energy, heat, cold, anger, virtues, knowledge, idea, but these things all exits. I’m told things existed from MILLIONS of years ago, because man invented a process that tells him how old something is. Is he right? Why, because science tells him so? Science is based on theories of men. l can’t see any of those things, so does that mean they don’t exist? You need to re-read your sentence, “It’s the fool who pretends to know what can’t be known”. Just how do you know if Jesus existed or not? Being so adamant he didn’t, doesn’t that also make you the fool? No man is all knowing, but a lot have faith, it makes them no more foolish than you. L. Dickson Gilford
Are Obama & Romney not going to have to address climate change? To the editor, 15-percent of the cost of a $3.85 gallon of gas comes from Wall Street speculation, which should be checked by the Commodities Futures and Trading Commission, one of the agencies now understaffed and underfunded while the Republican-led Congress wants to help out their big business donors. “Wall Street titans like Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and Barclays have driven up prices by speculation on not just oil, but food as well. Thanks to commodity index trading, which lets investment firms bet on several commodities at once, everything can be speculated upon in a package deal. Remember the summer of 2008 when gas was almost $5 a gallon?” (Carl Gibson, US Uncut) Remember that our aloof, rarelyhome, former Sen. Gregg (R) now is on the payroll of Goldman Sachs? (Since the required six months hiatus after he retired from the U. S. Senate.)
Climate change, that neither presidential campaign ever mentions, will directly hit families in the wallet and on the dinner table because of our summer droughts of recent years. Yes, “our.” Let’s own those droughts. Our Midwest is out of sight from the Northeast, but cannot be out of mind. “But a big factor that’s also driving up food prices is speculation — while Barclays made $800-million betting on high food prices, the cost of food has risen in the UK by a whopping 37.9-percent in the past year.” (Carl Gibson, US Uncut) Are both candidates Obama and Romney going to make it through public scrutiny without getting specific on climate change, Wall Street commodity index trading, and the costs of war/our bloated military budget? Neither one gets my full attention, minus these concerns of mine if they are not their concerns. Lynn Rudmin Chong Sanbornton
There is spending problem in Concord but not one Worsman describes To the editor, We, the Democratic candidates for House Rep from Meredith and Gilford, are surprised to find ourselves in agreement with Colette Worsman’s recent letter to the editor (“We did as taxpayers’ asked”). We agree there is a spending problem in N.H.: this L.egislature has chosen to spend in the wrong areas. The state is now spending to process voter ID affidavits when there is no proof of voter fraud in NH. The state is spending to implement a school voucher program which will simply take dollars away from our public schools. And the state is spending to support a seemingly endless array of new committees and commissions in Concord, among them the Special Committee on a Defined Contribution Plan for State Employees, the Committee to Assess the Form of Government in Towns That Have Elected
the Official Ballot Referendum Form of Meeting, the Committee to Study Entry Onto Private Property, Posting, Trespassing and the Definition of Recreational Uses of Private Land and the Committee to Study Self-Referrals for Implantable Medical Devices. The state revenue figures just released show N.H. $26-million below its target for the first half of this fiscal year. $20-million of that hole can be attributed to the decision by this Legislature to lower the cigarette tax. Actual budget projections anticipate this fiscal year will end with a $14-million deficit, an assumption built into this two-year budget cycle. We agree; there is a spending problem in NH, but not the one Colette Worsman describes! Lisa DiMartino, Bill Johnson Kate Miller, Sandy Mucci Gilford/Meredith Candidates for House of Rep.
until the moment of birth. Mary Doe is Sandra Cano. She was a mother of three who also did not have the abortion in question. Sandra, like Norma, unsuccessfully petitioned to have her case overturned. She is now an outspoken opponent of abortion. The 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution reads, in part, that any person within the jurisdiction of the U..S cannot be “deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law” or “the equal protection of the law.” An unborn child obviously does not have the protection of “due process” or “equal protection” when facing the abortionist’s fatal tools. The Supreme Court had to bypass, in effect deny, the personhood of the unborn in order to sanction extermination on demand. In other words, a developing child is not a life. Our president and the consensus of the Democratic Party as stated in their platform at the Democratic National Convention is in agreement with this principle. This is not considered a valid position by saline abortion survivors Melissa Ohden and Gianna Jessen. Barak Obama, as an Illinois Senator, voted FOUR times to deny legal protection in cases like these for a child born alive during an abortion procedure. Melissa and Gianna take PERSONAL exception to our president’s stand on this issue. Barak Obama’s contempt for the right to life includes an unwanted full term child in the womb as well as one accidentally surviving an abortion procedure. For those of you who deny that a pregnant woman is nurturing a human life, he is your man. The most dangerous place in America for human life today is a mother’s womb. Each conception, on average, plays a dangerous game of four-chambered Russian Roulette. Out of every three live births, another life has been willfully terminated by abortion. About 3600 per day, some 56 million in all, since Roe and Doe were handed down in 1973. Our founding document, the Declaration of Independence, states that we are “endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Our president and fully half of our people agree that these principles do not apply to the unborn. I stand solidly for an unborn child’s right to life. My convictions, however, do not permit me to go so far as to hang a sign over the entrance to an abortion clinic that reads, “Arbeit Macht Frei.” But I have thought about it. George Brunstad Meredith
Romney embraces the past and looks to Bush’s advisors for help To the editor, Do we really want a return of the ‘Bush Years’? With the events in Libya this week, we must ask ourselves if we want a president who hangs on to the George W. Bush Foreign Policy Advisers (James Baker, Condi Rice, Mitchell Reiss, Dan Senor and Jim Talent — all former advisers to George W. Bush)! Lacking foreign policy experience, Mitt Romney has chosen to consult these
Instead of taking an activist approach and refurbishing the United States’ image abroad and resetting relations with Russia, ending the wars, eliciting Chinese cooperation on global and regional issues and promoting peace in the Middle East, we are offered a candidate who embraces the past by looking to George W. Bush’s advisers who gave us a war on faulty information (Weapons of Mass Destruction) and increased tensions see next page

Finethy family buys Gilford Agway, which is now Gilford True Value By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
GILFORD — Bill and Lisa Finethy started the Gilford Home Center 26 years ago, purchasing a former roller skating rink on Gilford East Drive and building a reputation as a lumber yard of choice for local contractors. The couple had started discussing the purchase or founding of a second store in the region, but the right circumstance didn’t appear — until this summer, when the perfect opportunity popped up right under their noses. After the closing on September 4, Bill and Lisa Finethy are now owners of the property and business formerly known as Gilford Agway, also located on Gilford East Drive and just a short walk from Gilford Home Center. The newly-acquired store will be known as Gilford True Value and will be managed by Corey Lofblad, who had previously worked at the Home Center. Lisa said the two will be acting “hand-in-hand” to serve the local clientele. The Home Center has tended to attract contractors, while she expects the typical True Value customer will be homeowners. The True Value store will stock seed, animal feed and pet food, gardening supplies, plants and other homeowner needs. The Home Center specializes in building supplies and contractor-grade tools. The Finethys bought the business from Jeff and Tracy Gould. Customers of the Gould-run business should find themselves familiar with the store under its new ownership — the same employees will staff the store, with the addition of Lofblad, and they plan to continue offering the same types of products as before. “We’re keeping everything they had, adding paint and hardware to the mix.” This winter, the True Value building will undergo a complete renovation, though will remain open throughout. The two businesses will have integrated inventory systems, explained Lisa, so that a customer may, for example, buy paint at True Value and a sprayer located at the Home Center in one transaction, then drive to the nearby Home Center to pick up the sprayer. “It’s exciting,” Lisa said about the acquisition. “For from preceding page in the Middle East along with a failed economy. In September 2011, Romney referred to Russia as our country’s “# 1 enemy” (Washington Post). Perhaps Romney,also, “can see Russia from his house”! Pamela Cote Gilford

us, the time is right. We’re feeling good about it.” After several years of difficult times for the construction industry, and those who supply it, Lisa said 2012 has been a welcome upswing in business, capped by an especially strong August. Being in business for better than two decades, Lisa said she and her husband have been through tough stretches before. One thing which hasn’t affected their business, though, is the opening of a Lowe’s home improvement center a couple of miles away. She cited customer service and a higher quality of products as reasons why independently-owned
stores like hers can survive in the shadow of “big box” stores. “It’s a different quality of things that we sell,” said Lisa. They carry Carhartt clothing, Honda power equipment, Stihl power tools and Poulin Grain products, none of which can be had through their larger competitors. As Lofblad sees it, their recipe for success, which has worked at the Home Center and will be employed at the new store, is to offer top-quality products with “hometown service.” “Our whole goal is to be a destination store,” he said.

SCHOOLS from page one amounts to 4.7-percent of the district’s FY2012 budget of $20,479,398. In Gilford the surplus comes to 3.4-percent of the FY2012 budget of $24,469,607. “Uncertainty is the new normal” for school districts figuring how much money they need to operate from year to year, says Ted Comstock, the executive director of New Hampshire School Boards Association. Gilford Superintendent Kent Hemingway agrees. “That’s a good quote,” he says of Comstock’s pronouncement that succinctly explains the big reason for Gilford’s surplus which is being returned to the town to lower the 2012 property tax rate. The costs for many expenses turned out to be less that anticipated — insurance premiums, salaries, transportation, and energy costs. With budgets being drawn up almost a full year before they actually go into effect, knowing how much major line items, like fuel oil or health insurance premiums, are going to cost is an extremely tall order. “We’re working on the budget (for the fiscal year that begins next July 1) as we speak, and here we are in the second week of September,” Hemingway said Thursday. Areas that were over-budgeted in Gilford included salaries by $213,975, oil and electricity by $137,000, and school bus transportation by $296,000. Trish Temperino, the assistant superintendent for business operations at Inter-Lakes, noted the districted ended up spending $330,000 less on salaries than expected. Costs associated with workers compensation insurance were $33,000 less. And $127,000 less was spent on books, equipment and supplies than budgeted. Both Hemingway and Temperino said that getting a fix on health insurance costs months in advance is a challenge. Temperino noted that when the budget is being drawn up health insurers are not ready to quote what premiums will actually be, only that the increase will not exceed a certain amount. Typically a district learns what health insurance will cost for
the coming fiscal year only after the budget is passed. For Inter-Lakes the cost for health and dental insurance ended up being $145,000 less than was budgeted. In Gilford the figure was $296,000 less. But Hemingway is quick to point out that even with that downward adjustment the cost to the district for health insurance still went up $500,000. Another factor that contributed to over-budgeting in a number of school districts was changes taking place in the New Hampshire Retirement System, which provides annual benefits to teachers and other retired public employees. As the FY2012 budget was in the works school districts were being told that they would need to pay in an amount equivalent to 13.9-percent school employee salaries. But just as the budget was taking effect the Retirement System convened with a new board of trustees which then set the employer withholding to at 11.3-percent for teachers and 8.8-percent for other workers. For Inter-Lakes that meant a saving of $166,000, and $162,000 for Gilford. The Shaker Regional School District which covers Belmont and Canterbury also ended the year with surplus of approximately $394,000. But interim Superintendent Maria Dreyer attributed most of that saving to lower-than-expected special education costs due to some tudents moving out of the district. Special education is one of those hard-to-predict variables in a school district’s budget. One of the reasons that Gilford spent $93,000 less in bus transportation last year, according to Hemingway, was because it did not have to transport as many special education students outside the district as had been anticipated. The Laconia School District ended the fiscal year with a modest $38,058 surplus in a budget of nearly $29.5-million. But Ed Emond, business administrator for the district, explained that while districts like Gilford and Inter-Lakes have to draw see next page

LACONIA RESIDENTS ON CURBSIDE TRASH COLLECTION ROUTES NOTICE OF CHANGE IN ALLOWABLE LIMITS On May 14, 2012, the Laconia City Council voted to approve a reduction in the # of containers of trash allowed for curbside collection effective October 1, 2012: 1. Single-family dwellings and duplexes will be reduced from 5 containers to 2 containers on a weekly basis. 2. Multi-family dwellings and commercial establishments will be reduced from 10 containers to 7 containers on a weekly basis. All trash set out for curbside collection must be in a container – bagged trash must be tightly sealed and placed in the container. NO loose trash in containers will be collected.

from preceding page up their budgets months in advance, Laconia’s budget numbers are usually much closer to actual costs because the line items in the budget are locked in only after the City Council votes the bottom-line school budget, usually around the end of June. “By that time we’ve done most of our hiring and so we know what salaries will cost ... and we can pin-point pretty close what health insurance will cost.” The $824,444 surplus in Gilford’s operating budget is going back to the town to offset the tax rate. The district also ended the fiscal year with a $101,000 surplus in the food service budget. But because food service is a separate self-funded entity any surplus remains in that budget, and cannot be used to lower the tax rate, Hemingway explained. Both the Gilford School Board’s decision to return the entire operatingfund surplus to the taxpayers, and the Inter-Lakes School Board’s decision to do the same with the majority of its surplus reflects the boards’ sensitivity toward what taxpayers have been going through during the recession. “We are sensitive and do care about the tax burden,” said InterLakes School Board Chairman Richard Hanson. About two-thirds — or $601,594 – of the $967,355 surplus will go to lower tax rates. The balance of $365,759 will go to take care of deferred maintenance and repair items, some of which will correct safety concerns, Hanson explained.
“(New Superintendent Mary Ellen Ormond) directed us to a compromise position,” Hanson said of the decision to divide how the surplus would be used. He noted that in recent years that board has sent clear signals to the administration to keep budget increases to a bare minimum. As a result, he said some legitimate maintenance and repair items have been deferred, staff has been cut and as teachers have retired they have often been replaced by teachers at a lower rate of pay. Though the amount of the latest surplus is unusual for Inter-Lakes, according to Temperino, Gilford has often had significant surpluses in recent years, according to veteran school board member Paul Blandford. Blandford sees this as reflecting sensible budgeting. Better, he says, to budget on the high side and then return the money to the taxpayers at the end of the year, than to under-budget and not have enough money to pay for needed expenses. “Last year we budgeted fuel oil at $3.50 a gallon,” he explained. “But it turned out that the fuel oil price we got ended up being $3.10. That’s a significant savings. But when we prepare next year’s budget what if it turns out that fuel oil costs $4 a gallon and we budgeted only $3.10. We can’t go back to the taxpayers for more money. We have to find the money elsewhere in the budget. “We budget to protect the district,” said Blandford. “But when we’re done we give it back.”
VILLAGE KNOLLS from page one Selectmen voted in December of 2011 to give Gilford Village Knolls and additional year to raise the money after Ferruolo told them he was unable to attract federal funding for the project in the 2012 federal budget. The late Milo “Red” Bacon owned the property at 43 Potter Hill Road and sold it to the town for in 2004 to use for a spot for the library. The town spent $100,000 from at capital reserve fund established in 1999 and private donations accounted for the balance. Voters at town meeting agreed to purchase the property but voted down the $2.25-million needed to build the library. In 2005, Gilford became an SB-2
Official Ballot Act town, and taxpayers again voted down a request for $2.85-million to build a library. In late 2006, anonymous donors later identified as the Persons family, offered to give the community $3-million to build an new library next door at 41 Potter Hill Road. After the project began in 2007, the Friends of the Gilford Library — a separate non-profit organization — asked the town for $110,000 to coordinate the move and purchase items for the new library. The town agreed so long as the money came from the sale of the property. In anticipation of the sale of the property at 43 Potter Hill Road, The Friends of the Library borrowed the see next page The Retreat, the new transitional care center at Golden View, provides the intensive therapy and skilled nursing services necessary to speed recovery after an illness or injury.

from preceding page $110,000 from Laconia Savings Bank — now Bank of New Hampshire. In 2008 selectmen began the process of selling the land for $150,000 to Gilford Village Knolls but some members of the Budget Committee garnered 65 signatures on a petition to stop the sale because they felt the town already had enough low-income senior housing. Tony Ferruolo, the president of the Board of Trustees for Gilford Village Knolls withdrew the offer. In December of 2008, selectmen put the property out to bid and didn’t get a single offer. In 2009 selectmen again recommended selling the property to Gilford Village Knolls but voters at the deliberative session changed the amount to $110,000.
For the past three years, Stewart and Ferruolo have been seeking resources from both private and public agencies and, with BNH donation of $10,000 plus their agreement to lend Village Knolls the money to pay off the note held by Friends of the Gilford Library, means the the Knolls will own the property. Both Stewart and Ferruolo said they will continue to seek funding to build the actual 24-unit proposed project, but Stewart said Wednesday that getting money from various appropriate federal sources seemed grim at best. “I have a waiting list of 45 people but none of them could pay for a moderate income home,” Stewart said, explaining why Gilford Village Knolls will continue to seek funding sources for low-income senior housing.
ST. CLAIR from page one was his and soon afterwards officers brought it to his door. The day after the theft was reported, St. Clair had several offers of wheelchairs to replace it and for nearly a week used a wheelchair provided by ATech Services of Concord. “They were great and I was really grateful,” St. Clair said, “I missed my chair because it enable me to elevate my leg.” Meanwhile, during the week St. Clair learned that “people I don’t even
know were walking the WOW Trail and around the neighborhood, taking their time, looking for my wheelchair and others were calling the police with offers to help.” He recalled that Tilly, a greeter at Walmart, called to tell him that “she saw a guy in a wheelchair who looked suspicious, but it wasn’t my chair.” “I am very humbled, thrilled and grateful by this experience,” St. Clair said. “Overwhelmed really.”

YOUSSEF from page one someone named “Ken” to many Franklin voters that many, including those in the Bill Grimm campaign, interpreted as an endorsement of his candidacy by Mayor Ken Merrifield. Merrifield, in fact, was solidly behind Grimm. They also want answers to an official complaint made by attorney Ed Mosca regarding a fake Website that was created in his name that endorsed Youssef. Mosca, a Manchester lawyer, represents Youssef’s ex-wife in an an ugly child-support case that has called into question Youssef’s private and business finances. Mosca is claiming evidence as to who was responsible for the spoof points directly back to the Youssef campaign. Mosca is also the part-time attorney for the N.H. House of Representatives but was Bethany Youssef’s lawyer long before he signed on as house counsel and before Josh Youssef decided to run for public office. On the day after his victory, Youssef said they “worked very hard and ran and honest and clean campaign.” He responded to The Daily Sun by e-mail yesterday and said that his reply was in response to the “most recent round” fired by the Concord Monitor. That newspaper first reported the conversation Republican Senate leaders had with Youssef in its Friday edition. “The majority of the allegations leveled against me by my ex-wife’s divorce lawyer Ed Mosca, I addressed long before the primary,” he wrote. He said he made his personal cell phone, 520-1400, available to voters who had any questions. In his e-mail, Youssef reiterated that he is one of the 52-percent of Americans who are divorced and that he wants to focus his campaign on the issues of repairing the economy, creating jobs, fixing education and health care and providing property tax relief. Belknap County GOP Chair Alan Glassman of Barnstead said he agrees with Wayne MacDonald, the chair of the Republican Executive Committee when he said Youssef was elected by a majority of the Republicans in District 7 to be their candidate
and he supports the ticket. “I also believe it would be in everyone’s best interests for Josh Youssef to address the issues raised,” Glassman said, adding he wanted the District 7 voters to be assured the person they elect will represent the district’s voters. Laconia Republican Frank Tilton said he doesn’t know any of the details behind either Mosca’s complaint to the Office of the Attorney General, Youssef’s meeting with Bragdon and Bradley or the alleged of shenanigans in Franklin. “Obviously I support looking into anything in any campaign that seems improper,” he said. Neither Tilton nor Rep. Donald Flanders endorsed any candidate in the Senate primary however, the three other Laconia representatives, Harry Accornero, Bob Luther and Bob Kingsbury endorsed Youssef. Gilford resident Barbara Aichinger held a house party for former gubernatorial candidate Kevin Smith and Youssef during the campaign. She said she still supports Youssef and would like to see people wait and “let him respond” before jumping to any conclusions. She added that she thought it was “odd” that his ex-wife’s attorney was so public about the Youssefs’ divorce. “It just doesn’t sound very professional.” Former N.H. State Rep. Fran Wendelboe said she saw one of the mailers from “Ken” and that if it was done with Youssef’s knowledge, “it was cheesy.” She also said people should not be too quick to jump to conclusions because the mailers were distributed by Friends of Josh Youssef — a political committee registered June 9 with the Secretary of State — and he may have not known anything about the mailer. As of the September 5 filing, the Friends of Josh Youssef Committee had not reported any receipts or expenditures, but Wendelboe said that, if the total expenditures of the committee were less than $500, under state law they wouldn’t have to be reported. Friends of Josh Youssef is registered to Youssef’s girlfriend, Julie Griffin, and the committee’s address is 397 Union Avenue, which is the same address as Youssef’s individual candidate campaign registration.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, September 15, 2012— Page 13
FILM from page 2 film to stage an assault on the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. An elite Marine rapid response team arrived in Yemen’s capital of Saana, where local security forces shot live rounds in the air and fired tear gas at a crowd of an estimated 2,000 protesters who were kept about a block away from the U.S. Embassy, which protesters broke into the day before. In east Jerusalem, Israeli police stopped a crowd of about 400 Palestinians from marching on the U.S. Consulate to protest the film. Demonstrators threw bottles and stones at police, who responded by firing stun grenades. Four protesters were arrested. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton had tried to pre-empt the violence a day earlier by saying the rage and violence aimed at American diplomatic missions was prompted by “an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with.” Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi went on national TV and appealed to Muslims not to attack embassies. It was his first public move to restrain protesters after days of near silence and appeared aimed at easing tensions with the United States. But the demonstrators came out after weekly Friday prayers. Many clerics in their mosque sermons urged congregations to defend their faith, denouncing the obscure movie “Innocence of Muslims” that was produced in the United States that denigrated the Prophet Muhammad.
In addition to countries where protests have occurred, U.S. embassies around the world, including in France and Austria, issued alerts Friday advising Americans to review their personal security measures and warning them that demonstrations may occur and may turn violent. Other embassies issuing alerts included Mauritania and India. More than 50 U.S. embassies and consulates had released similar alerts Thursday. Several thousand people battled with Tunisian security forces outside the U.S. Embassy in Tunis. Protesters rained stones on police firing tear gas and shooting into the air. Some protesters scaled the embassy wall and stood on top of it, planting the Islamist flag that has become a symbol of the wave of protests: A black banner with the Islamic profession of faith, “There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his prophet.” Police chased them off the wall and took the flag down. Two protesters were killed and 29 people were wounded, including police. Protesters also set fire to the American School adjacent to the embassy compound and prevented firefighters from approaching it. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said the school in Tunis was badly damaged and is now “unusable.” The heaviest violence came in Khartoum, Sudan, where a prominent sheik on state radio urged protesters to march on the German Embassy to protest alleged anti-Muslim graffiti on mosques in Berlin and then to the U.S. Embassy to protest the film.
WISCONSIN from page 2 classes of workers who are treated differently and unequally. The ruling applies to all local public workers affected by the law, including teachers and city and county government employees, but not those who work for the state. They were not a party to the lawsuit, which was brought by a Madison teachers union and a Milwaukee public workers union. Walker issued a statement accusing the judge of being a “liberal activist” who “wants to go backwards
and take away the lawmaking responsibilities of the legislature and the governor. We are confident that the state will ultimately prevail in the appeals process.” Wisconsin Department of Justice spokeswoman Dana Brueck said DOJ believes the law is constitutional. The ruling throws into question changes that have been made in pay, benefits and other work rules in place across the state for city, county and school district workers. Walker’s law, passed in March 2011, only allowed for collective bargaining on wage increases no greater than the rate of inflation.

She said the royal couple has “every right to be outraged, especially with what happened to Diana.” Much of the anger seemed to stem from the fact that the royal couple was at a private residence when they were photographed. Prime Minister David Cameron chimed in to support the royal couple’s right to privacy. William, second in line to the British throne after his father Prince Charles, married Kate in 2011 and both have recently expressed an interest in having children.
KATE from page 3 newsstands, appeared to unite many Britons behind their royal family. “I think it’s quite outrageous,” said Alice Mason, 24, from London. “They were on holidays in a private place and some creepy journalist took pictures. It’s not in the public interest to see this. “They are always going to be in the public eye, but there is a line, and they (the media) crossed that line.”

Jaye E. Williams, 50 PLYMOUTH — Jaye Ellen (Blanchette) Williams, 50, of Thurlow St., died peacefully September 12, 2012, at her home, after a courageous five year battle with pancreatic cancer. Jaye was born on October 28, 1961 in Millinocket, ME, to Roland and Meridyth “Tony” (Dwyer) Blanchette. She graduated from Stearns High School in Millinocket, class of 1980 and from the University of Maine at Farmington, class of 1984, with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. She has been a resident of Plymouth since 1985. Jaye taught school for the SAU 48 in the Campton, Wentworth and Plymouth Elementary Schools from 1985 to 2007, but took seven years leave of absence during that time to raise her children. Her first loves were teaching and reading, of course. She added two new beloved hobbies in the past few years: knitting and watercolor painting. Jaye is survived by; the love of her life and husband of twenty-eight years, Donald A. Williams; sons, Aaron A. Williams and Isaac G. Williams, all of Plymouth; her parents, Roland
and Meridyth Blanchette of Lakeland, FL; her best friend and sister, Lyla Hayes and husband Mark of Plymouth, ME; brother, Brent Blanchette and wife Kathryn of Orange Park, FL; mother-in-law, Marion [Barr] Williams of Bangor, ME; sister-in-laws, Nada Williams of Bangor, ME, and Stacey Williams of Lincoln, ME; aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and special peeps (you know who you are) that helped her live a wonderfully full life during her battle with this disease. A private family graveside service will be held in the Riverside Cemetery, Plymouth. A celebration of Jaye’s life will be held at the Common Man Fosters Restaurant, Plymouth, on Sunday September 23, from 2pm to 5pm. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Jaye B.

DIRTY AIR DUCTS ARE A HEALTH HAZZARD
Rev. Fr. Hector L. Bolduc, 76 GILFORD — Rev. Fr. Hector L. Bolduc, 76, of De Pere, WI, Parish Priest of St. Michael Church in De Pere, WI and Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, Gilford, died peacefully in the early hours of Monday, September 10, 2012. He was born June 21, 1936 in Gilford, NH, son of the late Hector and Aurore (Theberge) Bolduc. Fr. Bolduc was a veteran of the US Army serving in the European Theatre. He was an avid world traveler and collector. Fr. had been a member of the Marian Fathers in Stockbridge, MA before going to Catholic University in Washington, D.C. He was ordained in Econe, Switzerland on June 29, 1974 by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre. Fr. Bolduc had been one of the earliest American members of the Society of St. Pius X, and was the District Superior of the Southwest District in the United States for several years until 1984 — after the Southwest and Northwest Districts were united into the present USA District. It was due to Fr. Bolduc’s efforts that the SSPX obtained the substantial properties of St. Mary’s, Kansas, Queen of Angels Church in Dickinson, Texas, St. Vincent de Paul Church in Kansas City, Missouri, as well as many other places for offering the Traditional Latin Mass.
For the last 35 years, Fr. Bolduc has been assisting at St. Michael Church in De Pere. He also has been instrumental in the founding of over 20 mission chapels throughout the country. Fr. left a lasting legacy through all those he has touched. He is survived by his brothers, Kenneth (Barbara) Bolduc, Roland Bolduc, Maurice Bolduc, Ernest (Ellen) Bolduc, Armand Bolduc, Robert (Marilyn) Bolduc; his sisters, Anita (Norman) McKeown, Lauretta (Raymond) Seabeck, Helen (Paul) Gaudet, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; his brother, Charles A. Bolduc; and sisters, Theresa Tracy and Barbara Colby. Calling hours will be held from 9 AM to 11 AM on Tuesday, September 18, 2012 at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, 500 Morrill Street, Gilford.

from preceding page The Rich Velasquez Youth Sports Equipment Foundation works to provide needed sports equipment to individuals who could not otherwise afford it. Without this equipment many children would not be able to take part in organized sports or have the opportunities to build confidence, learn discipline
and experience teamwork that only comes with organized sports. The Kiwanis Club of Laconia supports the efforts of The Rich Velasquez Youth Sports Equipment Foundation and firmly believes that providing the right opportunities for children allows them to start down the path to becoming the best adult they can be.

Water reﬁll stations installed at LHS
The Laconia High School has recently installed water bottle reﬁll stations around the school. These stations are aimed to fulﬁll a goal of keeping the students hydrated with free, cold, ﬁltered water and reduce the use of throw-away plastic. This idea initially came from LHS junior, Chelsea Parent after she saw them in use at UNH. She shared her idea with other members of Jobs for American Graudates and received support from two other LHS students, Autumn Ross and Savannah Bastis, who proposed having the idea implemented at Laconia High School with the Laconia School District Green Team. The Green Team supported the proposal and applied for a $5,000 grant through the town of Meredith, in conjunction with the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services. This one-time, 100 percent funding grant opportunity for local schools covered expenses for free water bottles and three bottle ﬁlling stations which have been installed and are currently in use. A fourth station will be purchased and installed with revenues from metal recycling from the Huot renovation. Pictured from left to right: Chelsea Parent, Autumn Ross, and Savannah Bastis (kneeling).

Bearcamp Valley Garden Club hosts leading floral designer on October 10 MOULTONBOROUGH —The Bearcamp Valley Garden Club will host one of New England’s leading floral designers, Bert Ford of Salem, NH, at a hands-on workshop in the art of making all-occasion botanical wreaths. The lecture/workshop will take place at the Moultonborough Public Library on Oct. 10 at 1 p.m. The program’s fee includes $30 for materials. Advance reservations are required by October 3, as space is limited. This event is open to the public. Ford, a member of the American Institute of Floral Designers, will present a program planned to take all levels of artisans to the next level of professional design.Seasonal decorations such as gourds, leaves, pods, various types of foliage, fruits and ribbons will be provided to decorate a vine wreath. The wreaths created could then be showcases in the participants’ homes on doors, windows or walls.
Wreaths date from the early stages of civilization, when they were reserved for royalty. The tradition of using wreaths as symbols of celebrations—to commemorate harvests, holidays, weddings, births, and other life milestones continues to the present day. Ford will speak about contemporary ways to use natural and found materials in surprising and unique ways. The lecture will be informal with plenty of opportunity for participants to ask questions. The Bearcamp Valley Garden Club, established in 1938, promotes an interest in all phases of gardening and horticulture, furthers the wisest use of natural resources through good conservation practices, and fosters those activities that ensure a more attractive community. Membership is open to both men and women in the Lakes Region. For more information, or to make reservations for Bert Ford’s workshop, visit www.bcvgardenclub.com.
PSU lecture series highlights Salem witch trials LACONIA — Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB) is pleased to continue its sponsorship of the Plymouth State University (PSU) Lecture Series – a joint effort with PSU’s Frost School of Continuing & Professional Studies and the Taylor Community of Laconia. History and spooky thrills collide in the retelling of the story of the Salem witches as Dr. Robin DeRosa presents “Witches, Pop Culture and the Past” on Wednesday, September 19 from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. at the Woodside Building at the Taylor Community. DeRosa, associate professor of English at PSU, will give an illustrated talk on the Salem witch trials of 1692, which resulted in the execution of 19 alleged witches and the imprisonment of hundreds of others. Author of the 2009 book The Making of Salem: The Witch Trials in History, Fiction and Tourism, will discuss the Salem witch hunt and its impact on popular culture, tourism, and American literature. This program, offered free of charge and open to
the public, is part of a collaboration between Meredith Village Savings Bank, Taylor Community, and Plymouth State University, designed to bring educational and entertaining programs to Taylor residents and the greater Lakes Region area. Seating is limited and this promises to be a very popular topic. To reserve a seat, call the Taylor Community at (603) 524-5600. The Frost School at Plymouth State University provides alternative access to quality higher education for the citizens of New Hampshire (particularly those in the North Country and Lakes Region) and New England. Named in honor of Robert Frost, who lived on campus and taught at Plymouth Normal School in 1911, the Frost School provides rewarding and challenging opportunities for working professionals to continue their education with courses, degrees and/or certificate programs. The school honors Frost’s values of individuality, hard work, humanitarianism and devotion to the country “North of Boston.”
Ayotte town meeting, Obama Portsmouth visit on LRPA LACONIA — Lakes Region Public Access (LRPA) Cable Channel 26 continues to provide viewers with more in-depth reporting, and not just “sound bites,” on what is happening locally with both Democrat and Republican political campaigns. Most recently LRPA filmed and broadcast Republican Senator Kelly Ayotte’s August 16 “Town Meeting” at Prospect Mountain High School in Alton. And on Friday, September 7, after participating in their Democrat national nominating convention the night before, the President and Vice President of the United States, along with their spouses, flew in
on Air Force One and appeared at Strawbery Banke Museum in Portsmouth. Also speaking in front of the audience of 6,000 persons were U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen and N.H. Governor John Lynch. LRPA’s volunteer videographers were there and recorded the 58-minute proceedings that will be shown this weekend on cable Channel 26. Program times are 7 p.m. on Saturday, and 10 a.m. on Sunday. The show will continue on Channel 26 for at least another week and program times can be learned by visiting LRPA’s website.

Dear Annie: When can we stop giving our children money? When is enough enough? My daughter and her husband are in their mid-30s. They bought a house they could not afford. On top of that, they are in the middle of filing for bankruptcy, as they have been overspending for years. My daughter works two jobs that provide neither a consistent paycheck nor benefits. Her husband’s job is more stable, but his salary is low. At one point, we gave her one of our used cars, which she was able to keep running for a couple of years. When that car died, I took money out of my retirement fund to buy her a used car. My son-in-law’s mother just bought them a new oven. My question is: When does all this stop? I worked for 30 years and never once asked my mother for money. I’m tired of doing and doing for them. At what point can a parent stop taking on the problems of their children? -- Resenting Parent Dear Parent: Whenever you are willing to let them sink or swim on their own. When an adult child is having temporary financial difficulties, it is a kindness for a parent to offer to help, provided the parent can afford it and the child uses the assistance to get out from under. But if a parent is constantly bailing out an irresponsible spendthrift, the handouts must stop before parents become impoverished and resentful in a misguided attempt to “save” their children. And these children never learn to stand on their own two feet. Consider whether you are helping or simply prolonging your daughter’s financial dependence, and act accordingly. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Wigged Out,” who has a condition that makes her hair fall out. People constantly ask about her “perfect” hair, and some attempt to pull at her wig.
I have thin hair and wear a weave method called a cap, done by a local hairdresser. It’s a process of braiding or molding one’s hair and putting a stocking cap or mesh on the hair (this allows the hair to breathe). Then the woven hair is sewn or glued on top. It allows you to wear your hair however you want -- long, medium or short -- and is not noticeably different from regular hair. Hope this helps. -- F. Dear F.: Readers offered many suggestions. Here are more: From Boston: I, too, take medication that contributes to hair loss. My husband encouraged me to order some beautiful synthetic wigs, which I have worn for years. At one event, a woman said she wished her hair could always look as nice as mine. I replied, “It can,” and lifted off my wig. It turned the party upside down, and everyone had a ball trying on my wig and getting info. A wig is no different from a hat, scarf or barrette. It is an accessory to enhance the beauty of the head. Wisconsin: She should consider hair extensions or a hairpiece that is bonded to her scalp and stays on for weeks at a time. Either of these would be more natural looking and cooler than a wig. I have been wearing lightweight bonded hairpieces for 10 years. I can swim, play golf, exercise, sleep and anything else without removing my hair. No one can tell, and I am never “wigged out.” Florida: Some people can’t stand it if they don’t know absolutely everything about you. I wear hearing aids, but I was sensitive about them, even though my hair did a nice job of covering them up. One “friend” took it upon herself to reach up and pull my hair back so she could see for herself whether I had hearing aids. I resisted the urge to slap her, but have avoided her ever since. I do not consider a person a friend if she does such a thing.

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There are quite a few people around you who couldn’t possibly understand your journey. It’s personal to you. Continue on, doing what you feel driven to do. What they think doesn’t matter. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Others try to hoodwink you into believing your methods are outdated and that there’s a better way to be had for the low, low cost of X. You don’t need to pay X or fix anything that isn’t broken. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It’s easier to be kind to people when you believe that there is more than enough to go around. Remind yourself of all you have so you can relax into good times and good will. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You have to set your plan in action in order to know where the kinks are. Start now. You’ll see immediately where the problems are, and you’ll fix them almost as quickly. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll strengthen your mind-body connection today. Every time you work on your body, it will become increasingly receptive to your commands. You tell it what you want it to do, and eventually, it will figure out how. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 15). Your sincere need to give back to society will start an adventure. You’ll earn the attention of your colleagues in October. November finds you busily solving a mystery. Love is mutual in December, and you’ll make a commitment that colors 2013. Extra jobs and money come in April and July. Pisces and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 1, 24, 39 and 50.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Knowledge that you acquire in small, easily processed doses is better than all the books that you haven’t read put together. If every day you learn just a little and apply it, you will make impressive improvements over time. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). This is the powerful question that could transform your destiny: Is there something you can do to change the situation, or is it truly a fixed equation? The answer may surprise you. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The goal you’ve been after is still attainable. Don’t give up this time. The one who wins is the person who stays instead of fleeing. Push past your own resistance. Be tenacious. CANCER (June 22-July 22). No matter how well you know your task, you can’t practice the unpredictable. Strange twists happen, and you twist right along with them like a pro. It’s what sets you apart as an expert. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your day moves along at a jaunty clip as you handle a list of items crucial to next week’s plans. You have no time to waste. Let people know you don’t plan on hanging around too long, and they will get right to the point. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’re such a savvy social director that there’s no need to ask others what they want to do. Just tell them what the plan is, and have a blast watching it unfold perfectly. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are tenacious. You will continuously direct your mind toward a certain purpose. When you’re not making a move, you’ll be strategizing the next one.

Page 22 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, September 15, 2012
––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Saturday, Sept. 15, the 259th day of 2012. There are 107 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 15, 1887, the city of Philadelphia launched a three-day celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Constitution of the United States. On this date: In 1776, British forces occupied New York City during the American Revolution. In 1789, the U.S. Department of Foreign Affairs was renamed the Department of State. In 1857, William Howard Taft — who served as President of the United States and as U.S. chief justice — was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. In 1862, Confederate forces captured Harpers Ferry during the Civil War. In 1935, the Nuremberg Laws deprived German Jews of their citizenship. In 1940, during the World War II Battle of Britain, the tide turned as the Royal Air Force inflicted heavy losses against the Luftwaffe. In 1942, during World War II, the aircraft carrier USS Wasp was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine; the U.S. Navy ended up sinking the badly damaged aircraft carrier. In 1950, during the Korean conflict, United Nations forces landed at Incheon in the south and began their drive toward Seoul (sohl). In 1954, as raucous fans looked on, Marilyn Monroe filmed the famous billowing-skirt scene for “The Seven Year Itch” over a Lexington Ave. subway grate in Manhattan (however, little, if any, of the footage ended up in the movie; the scene was later reshot on a Hollywood set). In 1963, four black girls were killed when a bomb went off during Sunday services at the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Ala. (Three Ku Klux Klansmen were eventually convicted for their roles in the blast.) In 1972, a federal grand jury in Washington indicted seven men in connection with the Watergate break-in. In 1982, Iran’s former foreign minister, Sadegh Ghotbzadeh, was executed after he was convicted of plotting against the government. The first edition of USA Today was published. One year ago: President Barack Obama bestowed the Medal of Honor on Sgt. Dakota Meyer, a young and humble Marine who had defied orders and barreled straight into a ferocious “killing zone” in Afghanistan to save 36 lives at extraordinary risk to himself. A single rogue trader at Swiss banking giant UBS allegedly cost the storied institution an estimated $2 billion. Today’s Birthdays: Actor Forrest Compton is 87. Comedian Norm Crosby is 85. Actor Henry Darrow is 79. Baseball Hall-of-Famer Gaylord Perry is 74. Opera singer Jessye Norman is 67. Writer-director Ron Shelton is 67. Actor Tommy Lee Jones is 66. Movie director Oliver Stone is 66. Rock musician Kelly Keagy (KAY’-gee) (Night Ranger) is 60. Rock musician Mitch Dorge (Crash Test Dummies) is 52. Football Hall-of-Famer Dan Marino is 51. Actor Danny Nucci is 44. Rap DJ Kay Gee is 43. Actor Josh Charles is 41. Singer Ivette (EE’-veht) Sosa (Eden’s Crush) is 36. Actor Tom Hardy is 35. Pop-rock musician Zach Filkins (OneRepublic) is 34. Actor Dave Annable is 33. Actress Amy Davidson is 33. Britain’s Prince Harry is 28. TV personality Heidi Montag is 26.

Lakes Region Real Estate Market Report / Roy Sanborn
Real Estate Referees
m ba 15 to
So, Labor Day has come and gone. The tourists are gone too, but we’ll get a flurry of them back for the foliage. Let’s hope so because as of September 1, 2012 there were still 1,337 residential homes for sale in the communities in this Lakes Region Real Estate Market Report. The average asking price was $483,460 with a median price point at $259,900. The inventory level dropped a bit from 1,351 last month and 1,399 last September so that’s pretty good. The average asking price last September was $521,155 and the median was $289,900. The current inventory level represents an 18 month supply of properties to sell which isn’t great, but better than the 22 month supply last September. Football season is here once again! It opened with the World Champion New York Giants get-
ting their behinds kicked by the Dallas Cowboys. As I was watching the game, (yes, I am a Cowboys fan) I realized how the penalties in football must have been derived from real estate terminology or maybe vice versa. And you may not know (and probably don’t care) that the NFL refs are on strike. They have substitute refs from Division II Colleges and the Arena Football League colleges working the games. That means that the striking refs are available to work in real estate for a while. Wouldn’t it be nice if you had a referee present to throw a flag when something was getting a little whacky? It’s a great idea, but I am not sure we could compete with their pay requirements. Here is a breakdown of the common penalties as we see see next page

from preceding page hem in the real estate world: — False Start: That’s when a buyer makes an offer but gets cold feet and acks out of the deal. This should be a 5 yard penalty for causing everyone o do a lot of work for nothing. — Interference: That’s what parnts usually do with first time home uyers! — Illegal participation: When somene brings their know-it-all friend and dvisor to a showing. — Unsportsmanlike conduct: When he seller throws a tantrum over a erceived low offer on his home. — Delay of game: That’s when seller delays answering an offer ecause he has another showing he next day and wants to see if it is igher. — Substitution infraction: That’s when a seller tries to replace that eautiful lighting fixture that was in he house with a $29.99 Home Depot pecial after the buyer makes an offer. — Spearing: A really low offer. — Tripping: A successful ploy in egotiations that gets either the buyer r the seller what they want. Some of the terms aren’t really penlties, but are really just real estate ngo: — Holding: Which real estate firm is scrowing the good faith deposit? — Encroachment: Well, that’s the hed that is partially on the neighor’s property... — Block in the back: A piece of wood hat is holding up the back deck, but is
not to code according to the inspector. — Chop Block: Small movable kitchen island made out of wood. — Illegal contact: A stove pipe that is touching the wall and could cause a fire. (see illegal use of hands below.) — Offsides: That refers to the side setbacks for buildings on a lot. — Illegal motion: You know, when you walk across the floor and you can feel it bounce under you. — Illegal use of hands: A poorly done do-it-yourself repair that should never have been attempted. — Illegal formation: A code violation of some sort. — Intentional grounding: This is not really a violation at all, it is required by the electrical code. — Personal foul: A disgusting smell in the home usually attributed to cat urine or mold. — Face mask: duh? What you have to wear when there is a personal foul. I am glad I could explain all of this stuff to you. It all really makes sense when you think about it.

STOCKS from page 2 that drove the Dow up 260 points, leaving it less than 600 points shy of its record high — 14,164, reached on Oct. 9, 2007, two months before the Great Recession. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index, a broader measure of the market’s strength, would need to gain less than 7 percent to surpass its own record, reached on the same day. There’s ample reason to think Bernanke’s prescription will work, at least for stocks. The idea is to pump money into the economy to push down interest rates, which encourages spending, and drive up stocks, which makes people feel richer. The measures are the Fed’s third round of socalled quantitative easing. It’s the fourth round if you count a similar, ongoing plan known as Operation Twist under which the Fed drives down longterm interest rates. The earlier actions were rocket boosters for stocks: — The first round was announced in its full $1.2 trillion form in March 2009, at the depths of the recession. From there, the Dow gained 45 percent over the following year. The S&P 500 rose even more. — Bernanke hinted at a second round in August 2010. From then until June 2011, the Dow added 24 percent. — Between the launch of Operation Twist last September and Wednesday, the day before the Fed’s announcement, all three indexes rose more than 20 percent. The Fed’s actions work in part because they help make U.S. stocks one of the least ugly investments out there. Big American companies are a stable bet compared with Europe and many emerging markets. People might prefer the safety of Treasurys, but the Fed is shooing them away, pushing yields so low that, adjusting for inflation, investors end up paying the government to hold on to their money. There’s no denying the Fed measures draw investors into stocks, says Tyler Vernon, chief investment officer of Biltmore Capital, an investment adviser in Princeton, N.J. But without some improvement in the economy itself, he says, the effects will be fleeting. “We’ve had this recovery in the stock market but not really in the economy,” Vernon says. Stocks will likely fall within months, he says, “when the same stories are coming out about the economy, when we start hearing the same old song of people dropping out of the work force and unemployment staying high.” There are other factors that help explain stocks’ recent gains. Investors expect corporate profits to rise strongly in the fourth quarter, after a trough in the quarter that ends later this month, says Sam Stovall, chief equity strategist with S&P Capital IQ, a research firm. And by one key measure, stocks are relatively cheap. Analysts often assess a stock’s value by looking at the ratio of its price to the company’s earnings per share. Right now, prices are about 14.5 times earnings over the past year, Stovall says. The median over the past quarter-century is 17.9. Hopes for an economic rebound are rising now that Europe has a better handle on its debt crisis. Investors were relieved this month by news that the European Central Bank will buy bonds from debtstrapped countries and Germany will participate in a crucial bailout fund. Despite the wave of optimism, though, a record for the stock market isn’t a sure thing. If the next few monthly jobs reports are as weak as the last few, the unemployment rate will likely rise — a discouraging sign that nearly everyone notices. And corporate profits are expected to be down in the current quarter compared with last year, in many cases because of weak demand in recessionplagued Europe. Europe’s stability is far from guaranteed. In the three years the debt crisis there has loomed over markets, several apparent solutions have turned out to be false starts. Economists’ greatest single fear is the so-called fiscal cliff, a set of automatic tax increases and government spending cuts that take effect at the end of this year unless Congress acts.
