Helicopter called on to pull cable for Gunstock’s long awaited zip line attraction
More details emerge of case against alleged bedtime burglars
BY ADAM DRAPCHO THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
BELMONT — A second man local police believe to be involved in a series of night-time burglaries — many of occupied homes — appeared in district court yesterday. Joshua Shepard, 31, who is being held in the Carroll County Jail is charged by Belmont Police for once count of criminal liability for conduct of another and one count of burglary. see CASE page 12
GILFORD — Gunstock Mountain Resort officials yesterday were expecting the helicopter to show up at 10 a.m. to run about 4,000 feet of cable from the base of a zip line course to a ridge three quarters of a mile away. The craft didn’t appear until 4:30 p.m. but a few hours extra wait was no concern for director of Sales and Marketing Bill Quigley and general manager Greg Goddard. Prior to delays due to construction complications, they had been hoping to open the attraction way back in July. The zip line course is the third and most ambitious of new amenities the county-owned resort is adding this year. Open this year in time for Memorial Day were the Aerial Treetop Advensee GUNSTOCK page 12 Workers (left) near the Gunstock Mountain Resort base lodge hook a length of cable to a helicopter’s tether on Wednesday afternoon. The helicopter then pulled the cable some 4,000 feet up to a ridgeline platform. The cable will later be tensioned and used as one of ﬁve zip line runs. (Laconia Daily Sun photo/Adam Drapcho)

2 Americans freed from Iran prison, begin the trek home
MUSCAT, Oman (AP) — After more than two years in Iranian custody, two Americans convicted as spies took their first steps toward home Wednesday as they bounded down from a private jet and into the arms of family for a joyful reunion in the Gulf state of Oman. The families called this “the best day of our lives,” and President Barack Obama said their release — under a $1 million bail-for-freedom deal — “wonderful news.” The release capped complicated diplomatic maneuvers over a week of confusing signals by Iran’s leadership on the fate of Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer. Although the fate of the two gripped America, it was on the periphery of the larger showdowns between Washington and Tehran that include Iran’s nuclear program and its ambitions to widen military and political influence in the Middle East and beyond. But — for a moment at least — U.S. officials may be adding words of thanks in addisee FREED page 13

Georgia executes Davis; supporters see injustice JACKSON, Ga. (AP) — Georgia executed Troy Davis on Wednesday night for the murder of an off-duty police officer, a crime he denied committing right to the end as supporters around the world mourned and declared that an innocent man was put to death. Defiant to the end, he told relatives of Mark MacPhail that his 1989 slaying was not his fault. “I did not have a gun,” he insisted. “For those about to take my life,” he told prison officials, “may God have mercy on your souls. May God bless your souls.” Davis was declared dead at 11:08. The
lethal injection began about 15 minutes earlier, after the Supreme Court rejected an 11th-hour request for a stay. The court did not comment on its order, which came about four hours after it received the request and more than three hours after the planned execution time. Though Davis’ attorneys said seven of nine key witnesses against him disputed all or parts of their testimony, state and federal judges repeatedly ruled against granting him a new trial. As the court losses piled up Wednesday, his offer to take a polygraph test was rejected and the pardons board refused to give him one more
hearing. Davis’ supporters staged vigils in the U.S. and Europe, declaring “I am Troy Davis” on signs, T-shirts and the Internet. Some tried increasingly frenzied measures, urging prison workers to stay home and even posting a judge’s phone number online, hoping people will press him to put a stop to the lethal injection. President Barack Obama deflected calls for him to get involved. “They say death row; we say hell no!” protesters shouted outside the Jackson prison where Davis was to be executed. In Washington, a crowd outside the Supreme see EXECUTION page 14
NEW YORK (AP) — The Federal Reserve did what investors expected Wednesday — it said it would buy Treasury bonds to help the economy. But stocks fell anyway. The reason? The Fed made it clear that it thinks a full economic recovery is years away. The Dow Jones industrial average lost 283.82 points, or 2.5 percent, and closed at 11,124.84. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 35.33, or 2.9 percent, to 1,166.76
The Nasdaq composite fell 52.05, or 2 percent, to 2,538.19. Investors bought Treasurys because of concerns about the weak economy. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell to a record low of 1.86 percent from late Tuesday’s 1.93 percent. And the price of oil continued its slide on expectations that there’ll be less demand for energy because of the economy. Crude
fell $1 to $85.92 on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The industries that fell the most Wednesday were the ones that have suffered amid worries about the economy this summer: financial and industrial companies and those that sell non-essentials to consumers. Retailers were among the biggest losers. Wednesday’s trading recalled the sharp see STOCKS page 10

PLYMOUTH — Guy Kenneson earned his first money cutting wood when he was 14 and sawed down some trees, cut them up and then split and stacked the wood at his family’s farm in Rumney. “I had 10 cords of wood and sold it for $140. The first thing I did was to go to Rand’s Hardware store and buy a brand new Schwinn bicycle for $22.50. I pedaled that bike everywhere and was the most popular guy in town because all the girls wanted me to take them for a ride on my new bike,’’ Kenneson recalls. Nearly 60 years later, Kenneson, now 73, is still earning money from firewood, getting out in the woods seven days a week to saw down trees and cut them up. “It keeps me in shape,’’ says Kenneson, who is currently working at a timberstand improvement project off from Town Farm Road in Holderness. “I’m here just about every day. Sometimes I’ll take a little afternoon nap in my pickup truck, but most of the time I’m out working with the other guys,’’ he says. Kenneson says that from his standpoint what he’s doing in the woods is like what happens in a garden. “I’m weeding the trees. I leave the good stuff and clear out the weed trees so that the good stuff can grow.” He said that he learned to work in the woods at the age of 10 with Howard Avery of Rumney, who logged with a team of oxen using a sled and a scoot to haul logs out of the woods. “Some people don’t like to see trees cut down. But when you do it right you open up the woods for new growth and keep that renewable thing going,’’ says Kenneson, who jokes that he’s selling organic wood “because it’s pes-
ticide free.” He’s well known in the Plymouth area for his firewood business and is still remembered for his exploits on the baseball field as a star pitcher for Plymouth High School, Plymouth State and later for the Laconia Lakers and other teams in the Northeast League, whose closest modern-day counterparts would be the Laconia Muskrats. Kenneson, remembered by those who hit against him for his devastating curveball and a lively fastball which he used to back hitters off from the plate, once struck out 24 batters in a 15-inning game that he pitched for what was then Plymouth Teachers College in 1960. That same year he pitched for the Laconia Lakers in the Northeast League, which also featured teams from Manchester, Nashua, Rochester and Portsmouth, and struck out 171 in 126 innings of summer baseball. And he tried to land a contract with a major league team that year, but was frequently overlooked by scouts because of his size, even when he was outperforming other players. “I had a tryout in Elmira, New York, which was a New York Mets farm team. “Fireman’’ Johnny Murphy, who used to pitch for the Yankees, was the manager. They had me pitching batting practice and they sent up a shortstop they thought was a great prospect. He kept swinging at my pitches and missing and a coach finally told me to let him know what was coming so he’d have a chance at hitting it,’’ Kenneson recalls. Murphy was impressed enough to have a scout offer Kenneson a $500 a month contract to pitch in Class D minor league baseball. “I turned it down because there was see KENNESON page

Grant to pay for victims’ advocate in county attorney’s office held up by commissioners because application protocol wasn’t followed By Gail OBer
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — The Belknap County Commissioners said yesterday they will not authorize the use of a grant to fund the victim witness coordinator’s position in the County Attorney’s Office unless and until it goes through the county’s formal grant approval process. The process requires any grants to be received and administrated by the county to be properly noticed for 30 days and for the application to be vetted through the commissioners before it is submitted to the granting authority. The policy was adopted two years ago after the Commission was sued by community watchdogs Tom Tardif and Doug Lambert over a Department of Justice Grant policing grant that provided $217,000 in money for a number of policing projects in the Lakes Region. Tardif and Lambert argued successfully that the process needed to be more transparent and, as a result, the commissioners adopted a policy that require prior approval of all grants before they are submitted as well as a 30 day opportunity for public comment. Last night’s decision to make County Attorney Melissa Guldbrandsen comply with the procedure stems from a announcement made on Sept. 2 that her
office had gotten $26,500 from the N.H. Department of Justice to support a victim’s services program. Commissions wanted it known that while all of them personally support the victim services program they will insist all the proper procedures are followed regarding the grant application and its administration. In other action, Commissioners ordered County Administrator Debra Shackett to set up a meeting with its attorney Paul Fitzgerald regarding the accounts held by the Belknap County Registrar of Deeds. In July, the county’s independent accounting firm reported under it’s “best practices recommendation” that the Registrar of Deeds close her accounts and deposit funds directly into the county’s general account. Commissioners asked Registrar Barbara Luther to comply but she has cited what her attorney Phil McLaughlin calls “conflicting statures” regarding how and when the funds are deposited with the county. Two weeks ago, Commissioners agreed to allow their attorney, Fitzgerald, and Luther’s attorney McLaughlin, come to an acceptable solution within two weeks. Last night, Commission Chair Ed Philpot said there has been an “exchange of letters” between the lawyers but “no satisfactory solution.”
Future of Barnstead PD meeting being broadcast on public access TV BARNSTEAD — On September 14 a public hearing was held here regarding the concept of shifting police responsibilities from the Barnstead Police Department to the Belknap County Sheriff’s Department. This first of two public hearings provided an opportunity for the citizens of the town and other interested people in the region to hear about the findings of the town’s Police Regionalization Committee and to ask questions of the committee, the Board of Selectmen, the police chief, and Belknap County sheriff and administrator. Due to the interest in regionalization by citizens and selectmen in other towns, the slightly more than 2-1/4 hour public hearing was recorded for playback on public access cable TV stations by Alton resident Bob Longabaugh, and is now being shown locally on Lakes Region Public Access (LRPA-TV) Channel 26 on the MetroCast cable system. To determine the broadcast schedule, check the Internet (http://www.lrpa.org/program/program26.pdf) or view Channel 24 at the top of the hour to see the broadcast schedule. In addition, a DVD of the hearing is available at the Oscar Foss Memorial Library located on Rt. 126 in Barnstead, across from the Town Hall. For further information about the hearings, please contact the Barnstead Board of Selectmen at 269-4071. For information regarding the video, please contact Longabaugh at 603-875-5067. (Note: The next public hearing on September 28 is NOT currently scheduled to be broadcast on Metrocast). A second public hearing is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 28 but it is not currently scheduled to be broadcast on later dates.

Real change Believe me, I know. I hear it every day. You had such high hopes for Barack Obama. For once, maybe the first time in years, you cared. You dared to believe. You really thought he could do it. And now you are so disappointed. You feel betrayed. Were you such a fool? Was he really so lacking in ways you didn’t know — in experience or resolve or humanity? How can this man who moved so many now seem so distant and aloof, so arrogant and unconnected, so lacking in resolve? Hold that thought. Or let it perish, at least for now. On Sept. 20, 2011, something historic happened in this country, and it is thanks to Obama. Thousands of men and women who are risking their lives for this country no longer have to lie and hide to do so. They no longer have to put up pictures of their supposed “girlfriends” or “boyfriends” so that others won’t think they are gay. They can be gay. They can be lesbians. They can serve their country with pride and not worry about the day they might be shamed and discharged. Sept. 20, 2011, is the beginning of a new era in the military. Just as discrimination on the basis of race was finally eliminated decades ago, so, too, now, thanks in large part to this president, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is history. It should have happened years ago. The policy was shameful. We owe countless men and women — not only those who were discharged, but also those who gave their lives in secret or have risked their lives in hiding — an apology. We owe them our thanks. We were wrong. The policy has changed. Military leaders — who fought the idea of such a change when
President Clinton, soon after taking office, suggested it — have changed. Attitudes in this country have changed. But the most important change of all is the one in the White House. President George W. Bush never would have done it. I don’t believe that a President McCain — much less a Vice President Palin — would have done it. Yes, there is plenty of room for disappointment. I wish the president had drawn a line in the sand during the debt default talks, that he had not, ultimately, let the tea party and its chief partier House Speaker John Boehner dictate the terms. I wish the president could stir the country as president like he once did as a candidate. I wish a lot of things. So does everyone I know who voted for Obama. But every once in a while, in between complaining and bemoaning, it is right to pause to recognize that our votes did make a difference, and so has this president. Life is different today for Americans who have long deserved our appreciation and respect. Life is different today because one more vestige — surely not the last, but still important — has been lifted. Life is different today because there was change in Washington. That change has now made its way to every corner of the world where our brave young men and women proudly serve this country. Today, I’m not complaining. Today, I am proud of my president and proud of my country. (Susan Estrich is a professor of Law and Political Science at the University of Southern California Law Center.

And just how many Tea Party events has Ms. Parsons been to? To the editor, On Friday, Sept. 16, Nancy Parsons addressed a letter directly to me here in this paper regarding the Tea Party and racism. So okay Nancy, support your accusation that the Tea Party displays racists signs and makes racist statements. You gave a couple of anecdotes that were supposed examples, such as that someone somewhere called the president “tar baby” and “boy”, so who, where and when? I never saw heard or read of any of this until your letter. Just asking! Another question is just how many Tea Party events have you been to where you saw these signs that were racist because I’ve been to several and have yet to see anything that could be even spun to suggest racism? Again just asking. As for some guy at the
debate yelling “yes” to a stupid question from a moderator about allowing someone to die, how does that represent the Tea Party? My interpretation of the event was that it was in frustration to the moderator who seemed to be asking difficult or loaded questions (depending on ones leanings). It may have seemed inappropriate but still not the Tea Party if you ask me. So Nancy, if you would please, I would be very interested in verifying your information for myself in case I have been wrong about the Tea Party. Until then I will maintain that those things you site are isolated unrepresentative of my experiences. Thank you so much and again, just asking. Steve Earle Hill
LETTERS Distorted development produces irrational beliefs of liberal minds To the editor, Psychology Today published on March 28 of 2010 an article titled “ If Liberals are more intelligent than conservatives, why are liberals so stupid?” “Everyone has common sense, intelligent people, however, have a tendency to overplay their analytical and logical reasoning abilities derived from general intelligence incorrectly to such evolutionary familiar domains and as a result get things wrong”. These “familiar domains” I may add are those drawn from past experiences and the dominant traits that have become part of his/her life. Many claim indoctrination as education.These people will levitate to like thinkers. Dr. Lyle H. Rossiter is a well known psychiatrist and has treated mental disorders for over 40 years. His book “ The Liberal Mind” is drawn from his experience as a social scientist. He states, “Under the modern liberal agenda, the people fail to develop normal capacities for adult autonomy, self-reliance and local community responsibility that are necessary foundations for individual happiness and social order”. He covers many underline problems that may be at the seat of their anxiety, some are: he was neglected, he was abandoned or controlled by his caregivers, he never felt loved, he endured unfair or excessive frustration, he was shamed or humiliated, he was not happy. As a result he may feel: sad, needy, empty, angry, envious and jealous. Has recurrent feelings of inadequacy. Is unable to sooth himself without blaming others. He feels he will never be satisfied without using force or manipulation. He has a sence of entitlements from others. Has an excessive need for nurturing and support. Dr. Rossiter says these people have a preoccupation with envy. Have a prominent arrogance about them. And an attitude of superiority. He states “ A political leader who understands human nature will not ignore individual differences in talent, drive, personal appeal and work ethic, and they try to impose economic and social equality on the populace — as liberals do. And a legislator who understands human nature will not create an environment of rules which over regulate and over tax the nation’s citizens, corrupts their character and reduces them to wards of the state-as
liberals do”. He adds “The roots of liberalism — and its associated madness — can be clearly identified by understanding how children develop from infancy to adulthood and how distorted development produces the irrational beliefs of the liberal mind. When the liberal mind whines about imaginary victims, rages against imaginary villains and seeks above all else to run the lives of persons competent to run their own lives, the neurosis of the liberal mind becomes painfully obvious”. We see elements within our society who fall within these guidelines. They have honed name calling to an art form. Never allowing an opportunity to go by without branding someone or group a derogatory label. Using filthy language is not beneath them. It has never changed. Communist agitators used the same tactics before we got involved in World War II. They demonstrated to keep us out of the war. Reversing their strategy when the Germans waged war on the Russians. Calling those Americans who wanted to keep us out of the war Nazis. Another interesting behavior that seems to inflict these people is they use any tactic to achieve their goal. One example is the current health care bill . First it did not originate in the Congress as the Constitution stipulates. “All bills originate in the House”. The Apollo Alliance is not the House of Representatives. Another disturbing trend we saw on public television. When the Speaker of the House was asked “What is in the bill?” She replied “We will have to pass it in order to see what is in it”. That is alarming to any one who has ever signed a contract. Would you place your name on anything you have not read and endorsed? No matter who we have as a president things will continue much the same way. One group fighting against another. Others wanting to take from one and give another. Some dwelling on the past. Agitators agitating. Angry mobs forming. Groups organizing for power and control. Until there is nothing left but those who have separated themselves from the turmoil and took care of their families, educated their children and improved upon their community. Gene F.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, September 22, 2011 — Page 7
My stinging adventure It was merely a matter of miles under my motorcycle tires before it happened. In my evolution as a motorcyclist, this particular collision with a small but powerful foe was inevitable if I were to receive my wings as a genuine rider. Regardless of the armor worn on a motorcycle, this other traveler of free flight has a way of striking fear and loathing into the heart of even the crustiest of cyclists, or so I’m told. I set out on my commute on far too blue and bold a morning for work. To make up for having to cloister myself inside on this shiny, new morn, I chose a twisting byway, splashing in and out of the shade of undulating leaves on soon to be scorching pavement. A large couple on a correspondingly larger Harley Davidson rode leisurely behind me, taking the curves in my wake. A mentholated breeze streamed through my jacket torso portals, all unzipped, but netted securely against bugs. Just as I settled into a winding rhythm, I felt the jab of what seemed like a sharp, but enormously gauged knitting needle drilling smack into my armpit on my throttle side. I stoically kept my course, proud that I could do this while whacking at the underside of my arm with my left hand, hoping to kill this invader who got sucked up my unzipped cuffs. I deluded myself into believing it was a onesting stand of the innocent, honey bee variety. Sadly, or gladly, depending on your perspective, the honeybee dies after a solitary stab. This is because Kamikaze like, it fearlessly tears away from the section of its body attached to the stinger barbed in the victim’s flesh. Even in death, the valiant bee continues its attack as its severed stinger pumps the last of its toxins into its enemy. With a little luck, my attacker would be a worker bee who perhaps, moments before, had before admiring the same foxglove along the roadside as I. After repeated piercings in my armpit, each one bursting my honeybee fantasy, I snapped to the reality that the fiend in my armpit could only be a wasp out for war with a wee machine gun as the stings became fast and furious. I calmly hit my turn signal, astounding myself with how unflappable I was — undoubtedly a survival technique to quell panic that could swiftly slide into disaster. Literally. I swished off the road onto the shoulder in a graceful arch with the control of a high wire acrobat, even remembering to turn the key off in lieu of a final bow. I then vaulted unceremoniously off my bike and madly ripped off my leather jacket in the next heartbeat. The rapid-fire stinger was fully deployed now. Still fully helmeted with the visor down, I let out banshee cry, barely recognizing what involuntarily escaped me had originated with my voice. The piercing sound had the effect of snapping a knot of tanned and shirtless builders at a nearby home
off their shovels to full attention. From their alarmed expressions they obviously heard my yelping despite the smothering headgear I never removed. But their concern evaporated into amusement when I presented as a dervish, whirling up dirt and alternately slamming my jacket on the ground then swinging it over my head as it if were ablaze and about to take me with it. I managed to stop my jig just before it became an overly ambitious clog dance atop my jacket. Except for a seemingly incongruous silk sleeveless blouse, I remained fully geared out, which, along with my bulbous helmet, added a cartoon-like flair to my frenzied dance routine. I stopped and slowly turned the sleeves of my severely beaten jacket inside out figuring it was safe now for a close inspection. Thank goodness cowhide is drained of fluids when made into apparel or this one would have been losing blood furiously. I never did see the offending creature, surely owing to the fact that it was pulverized during my roadside performance. As I attempted an overly-dignified nod of good morning to the now bemused workmen, I donned my dust-crusted jacket, got back on my steed and rode off, positive that my audience could see my now ruddy face behind my Foster Grants and tinted visor. Arriving at my work in the flush of an adrenalin crash, I carefully peeled off my jacket to exam myself. This confirmed that my tiny but potent assailant was indeed a serial stinger. My armpit resembled tenderized steak yet to be grilled but hot nevertheless. Applying ice turned out to be excruciating and soothing at the same time, like so much in life. Hours later, gingerly sliding into my jacket for the commute home, I thought about zipping my cuffs up tightly, snapping them shut and taping a Keep Out sign on them. The 90- degree weather that built up over the day had not cooled, however. So I opted to gamble that lightening wouldn’t strike in the same armpit again. It also occurred to me that the couple that whizzed by on the Harley while I took my first jig steps on the side of the road that morning, wore nothing to shield themselves from such an attack. They were of the school of full exposure motorcycle riding--tank tops and shorts and no head protection. I, who had armored myself to the hilt, took the hit instead. If only bees, wasps and hornets would understand, like other wild beasts, that road travel is dangerous. I hadn’t meant to abort the insect’s trajectory and have it loose its life over me. If only humans would understand that we can tame the landscape into ribbons of smooth highways, but we can never force nature to abide by what we consider the rules of those roads or riding etiquette.

LETTERS Would you teachers accept this generalizing from a 12-year-old To the editor, In reading Professor Sandy’s column in Tuesday’s Daily Sun, I couldn’t help but wonder if he would like people to judge him as he judges others. For example, he uses a very broad brush to claim that he was lied to by a number of very large groups, including K-12 educators. Mind you, those are fellow teachers he is making that charge against. However, having read the professor’s column for a long time, I have come to understand that he shows little respect for the work of others, unless those others confirm his own views. That raises a questions for all the teachers out there: would you accept that broad brush of generalities from a twelve year old? I have to wonder also, if the professor accepts that degree of generalization from his own students? Now, if that’s not bad enough, he goes on to claim that most of the lies told to him “were lies of omission”. In other words, if you knew something and didn’t tell him, and 40 years later he came across that piece of information, he will have determined that you “lied” to him. Again, I can’t help but wonder how many of his students will stumble on some bit of information at some time in the future, and therefore claim that Professor Sandy committed any number of lies of omission? A little further on in his column, the
professor cited Galileo and his being thrown into prison for having discovered that the earth wasn’t the center of the universe. In business, there are both “leading edge” and “lagging edge” companies. Generally, there are a select few companies in each business category who are willing to make the investment necessary to find that better way. These leading edge companies are sometimes called the “bleeding” edge companies because it is they who suffer the wounds of exploration. The “lagging” edge companies don’t mind being late to the party, simply because, in all probability, they will ultimately be able to copy the developments made by the companies who took the risk. In his example of Galileo, the professor, with his hindsight, believes that the findings of one man should have been readily accepted as truth. Perhaps if the professor could accept the leading edge/lagging edge concepts, he wouldn’t be so quick to place blame on the religious of that time. And true to form, the professor closes by making his pitch to retain tenure, despite all its flaws; kind of like the religious being slow to accept Galileo’s findings because they were holding onto truth, as they knew it. So Professor, I won’t lie to you, your “critical thinking” was absent on this one. Professor Sandy teaches our children. Bob Meade Laconia
We need private investment to create new jobs & businesses To the editor, President Obama said “If you love me you will help me pass my jobs bill” in what can called in a campaign speech in North Carolina. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results. How many times will Obama follow the Keynesian way before he realizes that we aren’t getting anywhere. You look at the states that are fairing better in this recession and
you will notice one common theme, LOWER TAXES, LESS-RESTRICTIVE REGULATIONS & LOWER GOVERNMENT SPENDING. You look at our national history and you will see that the greatest economic recovery has been those times that taxes were lowered and we brought regulation policy under control. Our president and his progressive liberals believe that only the government can create jobs. One example of see next page
Page 8 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, September 22, 2011
from preceding page this is the money that the Department of Energy has handed out in loan guarantees. The U.S. Department of Energy has handed out over $20-billion in loans and guarantees to create a total of 4,250 “green” jobs. This equals a total of $4.7-million of taxpayers money per job created. The problem is that these jobs no longer exist, which changes the equation to a total cost of $20-billion for 4,250 “temporary” jobs. I remember when the first Stimulus was being passed that we were told that the U.S. Government could provide a 100-percent reduction in income, payroll and business taxes for a cost of between $500 and $750-billion. If this, in conjunction to 0-percent tax on repatriated dollars for businesses (allowing American businesses to bring back profits made in other countries) would put more private money into the economy for investment and job creation than the Obama Administration has spent in the past two years. There have now been four major recessions in our history; The Great Depression; the recession of 1959 - 1962; the recession and stagflation of 1976 - 1982 and the recession/depression of 2008 to present. In the Great Depression FDR used Keynesian economics and tried to use the government to create jobs. I will give some credit for some of the infrastructure that was created, putting some people to work but we did end up with several bridges to nowhere that didn’t need to be built. JFK was elected during the next major recession and he took on the free-market measures of reducing taxes and regulations to create jobs. His economic policies were successful but he did use his office for “social engineering”, which we could have done without. In the 70s we had a problem with dependency on OPEC and they flexed their muscle, which started the recession of the mid 70s. By 1976 we were in a cycle of stagflation, which I partly blame President Nixon and his price controls on the free-market for. Jimmy Carter came into office and added to the problem with his Keynesian policies. When President Reagan was elected, it was on the same platform that JFK used and those policies worked again by creating the greatest peacetime economic growth that the world has ever seen. President George W. Bush came into office at the beginning of a recession that was followed by 9/11. The economy could have gone into complete meltdown at that time but he used the tried and tested economic policies that worked in the past. The economy under Bush was not as strong as that of JFK and definitely not as strong as what Reagan did but the economy did continue to grow until the end of his reign. Obama keeps talking about building the infrastructure to support a strong economy but the problem is that that infrastructure has already been built. It does need some maintenance but I will have to get into the waste of that program at a later date. When our government built the railroad it was a great improvement in infrastructure that helped the growth of our country. The same could be said of building airports and the interstate highway system. No new infrastructure currently exists that will have the same impact but our president doesn’t care about results. Basically what I am saying is that we need private investment to create new jobs and businesses and without investor confidence that isn’t going to happen. Venture capital requires a great risk and unless there is a possibility that there will be a return on investment the money is not going to be there. Canada has changed its tax and regulation policies and they have recovered from the recession. China has the lowest corporate tax rates in the world and has gone beyond recovery into full growth of their economy. Japan, after 20+ years of Keynesian policies has started changing their tax and regulation policies and is starting a strong recovery from the longest recession in world history. If our president is as intelligent as people claim then why doesn’t he learn what history has taught everyone else? Keynesian Economics doesn’t work. Greg Knytych New Hampton

LETTERS From K through graduate school, I never had a teacher who lied To the editor, Leo Sandy’s column of Sept. 20 is most revealing and informative, and well written. It squares with the personal info he has given me before, but this has more details. The excellent writers who have correctly objected to many of his columns, were not aware of his totally different upbringing. Below I will make comments on this current column. From that I hope Leo will reply in a way to educate all of us to his problems. Lies: (he has been lied to by the media, k-12 education, church, military and government). Only the last two apply to what most of us have experienced. My experience has been that most of the media is influenced by their own personal bias, but rarely would we call that lies. Leo doesn’t square with reality: what one disagrees with doesn’t show it is a lie! Else we have an impossible contradiction: what one sees as the truth and another sees as a lie, must be neither, just opinion/differences. K-12 education: I had teachers who were excellent, those who were less efficient but very nice and those who were good at teaching but annoyed everyone — but never one who lied to us. That applies through college and graduate school. That covers years from 1938 to 1957. During that time I recall some students who were rebelling against school, and hated all those excellent teachers. Is Leo telling us he was one of those? Church: I attended church and early Sunday school, learned a lot, can’t recall ever being lied to. I attended summer week long conferences, which were so excellent that I obtained a $25 grant from our church to take movies of one week. My first day of that I got Joan in a scene, and I met her the last day (fortunate for us). (Married her in 1955, one of my best decisions ever). Never was I lied to in
any of those situations, or many years of church since. All that experience got me to study the bible closely, then other religions up through Muslims. I disagreed with much of the writings due to errors of ignorance and pride, but only in the Koran did I find lies. Leo should understand that teaching what was written way in the past, which is in error today due to better knowledge, is not lies! The Christian Church has been extremely important for all of us today. One can disagree with some of their teaching, but the basic morality and LOVE always applies! I consider myself as an agnostic: love the church, disagree with the attitude that ancient writings were the absolute word of God. Where did he go to school? We were clearly taught that the Native American Indians were noble and very helpful to new settlers. Our government, as usual, broke most treaties and caused much suffering to all, actually similar to what Obama is trying to do to us. The government, then, was the problem, not the people: same as today. The “big lie telling people the USA and people are better than anyone else”? Obviously Leo doesn’t follow history. The USA is the ONLY country in the world which has HELPED those who have attacked us: look at WWII; Germany and Japan were resurrected by the $$$ and works of the USA, with NO retribution asked from them! No other nation in the world has ever done that! The USA represents the BEST of all nations and cultures. Hey Leo, don’t you understand why so many are trying to get into the USA? With your attitude, you should be leaving. “How many Galileo’s” ignores the fantastic scientific progress that has, and is still happening, in the USA? At 78 I’m still making breakthroughs in engineering design and construction, see next page

Constitution Day idea forum at Lakes Region Community College About 40 students, professors, and residents joined panelist Russ Wiles, Steve Earle, Pam Colburn and moderator Jeffrey Murray for the annual Constitution Day discussion at Lakes Region Community College yesterday. With Wiles representing the “right” or conservative point of view, Earle representing the “middle” and Coburn representing the “left” or liberal side, the two topics discussed were the viability of a balanced budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution and whether or Congress should pass some kind of amendment acknowledging the reciprocity of gay marriage in all 50 states. Wiles and Earle are frequent contributors to the Laconia Daily Sun’s letters to the editor page while Coburn sat in for an ailing Lynn Rudman Chong. (Gail Ober/for The Laconia Daily Sun)
STOCKS from page 2 losses the market has suffered this summer as investors feared that the country was heading toward another recession. The Fed said after a two-day meeting that it would buy long-term Treasurys and sell short-term ones to help the economy regain momentum. It surprised investors when it said it would include more 30-year bonds in its purchases than expected. “It’s being viewed as perhaps an admission that this is a longer-term issue that the U.S. economy is facing and not one that’s going to be solved over a couple of years,” said Oliver Pursche, president of Gary Goldberg Financial Services. The major indexes fluctuated as they often do after major Fed announcements. The losses acceler-
ated in the last hour of trading. The Fed said it would buy $400 billion in 6-year to 30-year Treasurys by June 2012. Over the same period, it planned to sell $400 billion of Treasurys maturing in 3 years or less. The move is intended to drive down interest rates on long-term government debt, and could lower rates on mortgages and other loans. Those purchases are intended to send long-term rates down — Treasury yields fall when the bonds are in demand. The inclusion of more 30-year bonds than expected means the Fed saw the need to keep very long-term rates lower for an extended period. And that took investors by surprise, Pursche said. “When the Fed decides to take this type of action, it’s because things are serious,” Pursche said. see next page
from preceding page which Leo can’t understand. Meanwhile we find that teaching in schools is still seriously declining, with union teachers claiming that test scores mean nothing, and their students can’t do any normal job. In real dollar value, most teachers get four times what the GOOD teachers of the 50s got, and produce students with one-fourth the education. Leo’s description of his liberal and conservative teachers tells a lot! He didn’t like teachers who wanted the students to learn, but loved those who made it a fun game. Kind of describes many teach-
ers today, who think the entertaining is the goal, not education. At the end he totally blows it with lies and insults. Tenure means that no matter how useless a teacher is, you can’t fire him or her. Similar to how the unions have destroyed industries and sent many jobs to other countries. Those living off the dole never accept fairness, and I believe Leo has given us a good example of that. Jack Stephenson Gilford

Gilford police charge Holderness woman with defying ban from local grocery LACONIA — Judge Jim Carroll ordered a Holderness woman held on $200 cash-only bail and $1,500 personal recognizance bail for entering a Gilford Hannaford supermarket after being repeated banned from all Hannafords related stores. Det. Eric Bredbury in his affidavit said that Katherine Brown, 22, of 387 E. Holderness Road was arrested Tuesday after allegedly entering Hannaford’s twice on Sept. 16 after she had been served a notice of criminal trespass on August. 24. She was also charged in Ashland at 3:53 p.m. on Sept. 16 for receiving stolen property and released on $1,500 personal recognizance bail by Bail Commissioner Peter Gulick. She allegedly violated her bail within hours by twice entering Hannaford’s later that day in Gilford. Bredbury’s affidavits says Brown has prior convictions in 2011 for a felony violation the controlled drug act, two forgery conviction, a charge of theft or mislaid property and for twice violating the terms of her probation or parole. In 2010 she was convicted of theft by unauthorized taking — a misdemeanor — fined $500 and ordered to pay restitution to WalMart and Game Stop in the amounts of $199 and $61.20 respectively.
Police say 1 car hit 4 others
LACONIA — Police say a Laconia driver hit four southbound cars waiting at the Union Ave. at Elm Street light on Wednesday afternoon. Peter Tsakirisof of Stark Street is said to have caused substantial damage to the four vehicles, as well as to his 2004 Chevy Impala. There were no injuries reported at the scene but Tsakiris was transported to Lakes Region General Hospital as a precaution. The four vehicles Tsakiris struck were in the left lane, which is the route for proceeding straight through the intersection. Tsakiris was apparently traveling in the right lane, which is reserved for traffic turning right onto Elm Street, when he veered into line of stopped cars. from preceding page The Fed had some bleak remarks about the state of the economy in the statement that accompanied its decision to buy more bonds. The Fed said the economy has “significant downside risks.” One of those risks is the volatility in financial markets around the world. It also listed a number of problems that won’t be easily solved: high unemployment, a depressed housing market and consumer spending that is growing only at a slow pace. There are also concerns about problems overseas, including the debt crisis in Europe that investors believe could affect the U.S. The International Monetary Fund said Wednesday the global financial system is in its most vulnerable state since the 2008 financial crisis. In a semi-annual report, the IMF said the risk to banks and financial markets has grown in recent months. Stocks were already moderately lower when the Fed made its announcement shortly before 2:30 p.m. Eastern time. Within half an hour, the Dow was down 157 points. It then regained ground and fluctuated before beginning its plunge in the last 45 minutes of trading. Investors were digesting the Fed’s plan, and began to see it as a statement that the economy is weaker than many people had thought. “That is perhaps a recognition that the Fed is running out of firepower and resorting to some arcane techniques resurrected from the vault of history,” said Lawrence Creatura, portfolio manager at Federated Investors. Investors may also doubt the Fed’s ability to drive down Treasury yields much more from their current levels. “Let’s face it: with a 10-year Treasury offering 1.90 percent, there’s not a whole lot of room for there to be a major impact,” said Mark Lamkin, the head of Lousiville, KY-based Lamkin Wealth Management.

Speaker predicts N.H. is going to lose $35-million Medicaid case & should start planing more cuts now CONCORD (AP) — Two state legislators testified Wednesday it’s unlikely that New Hampshire will prevail in its request to avoid repaying $35 million in Medicaid money owed to the federal government, so they suggested that lawmakers act now and consider more state budget cuts to make up for the projected loss. House Speaker William O’Brien and State Rep. Neal Kurk, both Republicans, suggested to the House Finance Committee that reductions could be made over time, rather than all at once. A federal panel decided in July that New Hampshire must repay the money, saying that the $35 million the state received in 2004 was based on incorrect state calculations. The state asked for reconsideration of the decision on Sept. 9 and is expected to hear a response by the end of the year. The money went to help 26 hospitals to offset the costs of treating their most vulnerable patients. Kurk, who testified in support of his bill allowing the additional budget cuts to state agencies, said the repayment rate to the hospitals was miscalculated by the state at the time, allowing it to get more money than it should have.
Kurk said the hospitals received their payments, but much of the money went to balance the general fund budget, which it has done for years. A federal audit revealed the problem. “If we take action, then we can spread whatever reductions have to be undertaken to produce a balanced budget over 18 months, roughly, rather than 12 months,” Kurk said. “The longer period of time you spread the reductions, the less severe each reduction has to be.” He said he didn’t know where the cuts should be made, suggesting that programs be looked at individually for consideration. Earlier this year, legislators passed a $10.2 billion two-year budget that took effect July 1 and made severe cuts, among them the budget for the University of New Hampshire system and payments to hospitals to care for the poor. It also increased state workers’ pension costs. “Obviously, this comes at a difficult time, given the reductions the Legislature has had to make,” O’Brien said. He said legislators have a responsibility to keep the budget in balance.
WEST STEWARTSTOWN, N.H. (AP) — The mother of an 11-year-old New Hampshire girl whose body was found a week after she disappeared from her home says she has separated from her husband, her daughter’s stepfather, and is selling her house. Celina Cass was last seen alive at her West Stewartstown home July 25. Her body was recovered from the Connecticut River close to home near the borders of Canada and Vermont. An autopsy failed
to pinpoint the cause and manner of death. Toxicology tests are pending. No arrests have been made. A tearful Luisia Cass tells WMUR-TV she didn’t hear anything the night her daughter disappeared. Luisia Cass says she’s separated from Celina’s stepfather, Wendell Noyes. He has a history of psychiatric issues and has been in and out of hospitals since Celina disappeared.

CASE from page one Judge Jim Carroll of the N.H. 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division ordered him held on an additional $20,000 cashonly bond. He is already being held on $50,000 cash-only bail for similar charges he faces in Laconia. According to affidavits submitted by the Belmont Police, Shepard allegedly admitted to acting as a lookout for his allegedly accomplice Spencer Mullarkey during a burglary on Sunset Drive on July 12. Affidavits said that the homeowner was awakened around 3:45 a.m. by a noise in the kitchen. The homeowner said he saw a man, fitting the description of Mullarkey, rummaging through his wife’s purse. He told police when the intruder realized he was there he raised both his hands in the air, backed out of the kitchen and ran from the house. The homeowner said he followed the intruder from the home and saw a second man acting as a lookout. He said that man was smoking a cigarette. Mullarkey and Shepard were picked up by Laconia Police on Aug. 23 and were interviewed by Belmont Police the next day. Patrol Officer Gary Boisvert said Mullarkey denied committing this burglary but during his interview with Shepard, he said Shepard admitted being the lookout and told Boisvert that “something must have happened inside the residence because Spencer came running out.”
Shepard is charged with one count of criminal liability for the conduct of another for this allegation. He also faces once charge of burglary for an incident on Dutile Road that occurred sometime between June 5 and June 10, 2011. Boisvert said Mullarkey told him he went to the house and “popped” out the window. He said the window fell and made “a lot of noise.” When Boisvert asked him if he took anything, Mullarkey allegedly said that he didn’t see any pocketbooks so he didn’t go in. During his interview Shepard told a conflicting tale. He said Mullarkey popped out the window, crawled through it and open the door for Shepard. Shepard allegedly admitted taking a DVD player and a surround-sound system. Belmont Police said these two things were among the items reported stolen by the homeowners. While executing a search warrant at Shepard’s place, Laconia Police described these two items as being in Shepard’s home. For this, Shepard is charged with one count of burglary. Both Shepard and Mullarkey waived their rights to probable cause hearings on the Laconia charges. It is not known if they will appear in district court on the Belmont charges. Both police departments expect the charges to be bound over to a Belknap County Superior Court grand jury for possible indictments. — Gail Ober
GUNSTOCK from page one ture high-altitude ropes course and a Segway tour course around the property. With the new additions, Goddard said he hopes to boost summertime attendance from 100,000 visitors to 160,000. Winter remains king at Gunstock, when 200,000 guests will come to ski, snowboard or tube. The zip line, once completed, will feature what Quigley described as the “longest zip line in the continental United States.” A line will run from one ridge to another almost 4,000 feet away. Once at that ridge, the zip line users will transfer to another line, nearly as long, which will return the adventurers to the base lodge. All in all, there will be five different zip lines, starting with a “demo” line 20 feet long. At its greatest height, the line will be about 150 feet above the ground. Admission to the zip line course will cost $65 per person. For that price, users will have about two and a half hours of an aerial experience. Each of the five runs features parallel cables, so users can share the experience with a partner. Quigley said the engineers predict a top speed of 56 miles per hour, though users will be able to control their speed “100-percent” through the use of a hand-operated brake – depending on the personality, the zip line course could be a hair-raising speed run or a leisurely foliage tour. With the three quarter-inch cables put into place by the helicopter, the final step for the zip line will be for the cables to be tensioned. Goddard said the lines will be pulled to a tension between 13,000 and 18,000 pounds, depending on the particular run. As soon as the course is ready, Gunstock
will open the zip line course and will keep it open year-round. Though only the hardiest visitors will want to zoom above the canopy at high speeds during winter weather, they’ll be rewarded with plenty to look at, noted Quigley, as the course not only takes great advantage of Gunstock’s unparalleled views of Lake Winnipesaukee and the White Mountains beyond, it also passes directly over several ski trails, glades and the terrain park, where the bolder skiers and boarders practice their tricks. The zip line project, which officials hope to open during for foliage season, is expected to cost around $1.4-million. Including the Segway and ropes course projects, the total cost of summer improvements comes to $2.1-million. With that kind of investment, Quigley said they know that they’ll need to get people to use them. Response so far, on the Segway tour and ropes course, has been “phenomenal,” he said. “The expectations are high, the experience has been even better.” During the summer season, the Segway tours have operated at near capacity. The ropes course, while it still has room to grow, saw an average of 150 people on weekdays and “low 200s” on the weekends, according to Goddard. As Quigley explained, the underlying goal of the additions is to expand the offerings Gunstock provides residents and visitors. In the process, they’ll also diversify the resort’s revenue streams. He said, “We’re looking for other activities that are mountain activities and gravity-based. All the activities we’ve chosen you can do with your family.”

Romney dominates new N.H. poll EXETER, N.H. (AP) — Mitt Romney may be tightening his grip on New Hampshire voters, despite the best efforts of Texas Gov. Rick Perry. A new Suffolk University-7News poll shows the former Massachusetts governor leading Perry by 33 points among likely New Hampshire voters. Perry leads several recent national polls but finishes fourth in the nation’s first primary state survey.
Romney takes 41 percent. That’s 27 points better than his nearest rival. Texas Rep. Ron Paul garners 14 percent. Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman finishes third with 10 percent, followed by Perry with 8 percent. It is the first nonpartisan poll focused on New Hampshire since Perry joined the race almost six weeks ago. Perry has visited New Hampshire several times and courted key officials.
WYATT from page one and Recreation, said yesterday that some months ago Sally Perrino, president of the Wyatt Park Association, submitted a list of measures for improving the park, which enjoyed support from City Councilor Brenda Baer (Ward 4). He said that on the advice of then city manager Eileen Cabanel, he decided to arrange a charette in order to afford all those with an interest in the park an ample opportunity to offer their suggestions for improving it. Wyatt Park is off Garfield Street, where it intersects with South Main Street. It has a playground, picnic tables and two basketball courts. The park house, which long served as the Ward 4 polling station, was closed several years ago after an inspection of the building discovered structural and mechanical deficiencies. “It’s a very, very busy park,” said Perrino. “I’ve stood on my front lawn in the spring and counted 90 people in the park and there are often 30 or 40 kids in the playground at a time.” She said the park needs more playground equipment to supplement the apparatus donated by the Laconia-Gilford Lions Club and additional benches as well as landscaping with plantings of flowers and shrubs. “I’d like to see the park spruced up,” Perrino remarked yesterday. “We want people to come her and have a picnic while their kids play.” Perrino said that opinion among neighbors is divided over the basket-
ball courts. In 2004, residents complained of rowdy, noisy behavior on the courts late at night, prompting the Parks and Recreation Commission and the Police Department to convene a public meeting to address the issue. Perrino said that although the situation has improved, some neighbors remain troubled by loud noise and foul language coming from the courts For more than a decade the city has budgeted $25,000 a year for improvements to playgrounds and Dunleavy said that a fund earmarked for playgrounds has a current balance of approximately $60,000. But, he noted that it costs between $75,000 and $100,000 to equip a playground. He said that the 2011-2012 budget includes $25,000 for the demolition of the Wyatt Park clubhouse, which could prove insufficient if hazardous materials are found in the building. “We want to provide everyone an opportunity for input,” Dunleavy said, “to give us their vision for the park.” Noting that improvements have been made to other city parks, Perrino said “it’s our turn.” She acknowledged that without a park house, the association, which once sponsored carnivals, parades and three-on-three basketball tournaments, has withered. However, she stressed that the park is an important asset for the neighborhood . “It would be nice to have all the people who live around the park attend the meeting,” she said. — Michael Kitch
FREED from page 2 tion to their calls for alarm over Iran. For Tehran, it was a chance to court some goodwill after sending a message of defiance with hard-line justice in the July 2009 arrests of the Americans along the Iran-Iraq border. The Americans always maintained they were innocent hikers. “Today can only be described as the best day of our lives,” said a statement from their families. “We have waited for nearly 26 months for this moment and the joy and relief we feel at Shane and Josh’s long-awaited freedom knows no bounds.” “We now all want nothing more than to wrap Shane and Josh in our arms, catch up on two lost years and make a new beginning, for them and for all of us,” the statement added. Obama called it “wonderful, wonderful news about the hikers, we are thrilled ... It’s a wonderful day for them and for us.” U.N. Secretary-General Ban Kimoon welcomed the hikers’ release, saying he “appreciates the decision to respond to international appeals on humanitarian grounds,” said spokesman Martin Nesirky. “He commends all parties who helped to secure their
release.” The release came on the eve of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s previously scheduled address Thursday to the U.N. General Assembly’s annual ministerial meeting. The families waited on the tarmac at a royal airfield near the main international airport in Oman’s capital, Muscat. Also returning to Oman was Sarah Shourd, who was arrested with Bauer and Fattal but freed a year ago. She received a marriage proposal from Bauer while in prison. At about 20 minutes before midnight, Fattal and Bauer — wearing jeans and casual shirts — raced down the steps from the blue-and-white plane. They made no statements to reporters before walking into the airport terminal building, which was guarded by security officials. The men appeared thin, but in good health. “We’re so happy we are free,” Fattal told reporters in Oman. The two men made brief statements before leaving the airport with their families. “Two years in prison is too long,” Bauer said, and hoped their release from prison will also bring “freedom for political prisoners in America and Iran.”

BOSTON (AP) — Boos poured down on the struggling Red Sox as they left the field after their latest loss. In the clubhouse, it was quiet as they packed for their final road trip — and perhaps their last games — of the year. The Red Sox road to the playoffs hit more rough spots when they blew another late lead, falling to the Baltimore Orioles 6-4 on Wednesday night, their 14th loss in 18 games. Boston’s lead in the AL wild-card race increased by a half game to 2½ when the Tampa Bay Rays lost a doubleheader to the New York Yankees. But the Red Sox seemed stunned by their collapse, with blank looks on their faces and little expression in their voices. “We certainly haven’t made it very easy for ourselves,” manager Terry Francona said. “That doesn’t mean we can’t get where we want to go, but we have our work cut out for us.” Vladimir Guerrero hit a two-run single in the eighth inning that broke a 4-all tie. Then the Red Sox went meekly in the last two innings, failing to get a hit and ending on Jed Lowrie’s soft grounder to pitcher Jim Johnson. The Red Sox led Tampa Bay by nine games on Sept. 3. Now they also must hold off the Los Angeles Angels, who also are 2½ games out in the AL wildcard race after beating Toronto 7-2 on Wednesday. The Red Sox have six games left — three at Yankee Stadium and three at Baltimore. Tampa Bay has seven remaining — four against the Yankees and three against Toronto. Can the Red Sox, who straightened out their
season after losing their first six games and 10 of their first 12, do it again? “I think I can answer that better next Wednesday” after the regular-season finale, Francona said. “I’m not in a very good mood right now. We just lost a game, you know. We’ve lost a lot of games. We’re going to have to fight for everything we get the rest of the way.” Ace Josh Beckett started for Boston, hoping to put more distance between Boston and the Rays. Beckett (13-6) allowed just one hit through five innings as the Red Sox built a 4-1 lead. But he gave up a run in the sixth and two more in the seventh on Mark Reynolds’ second homer that tied the game. “I kept thinking when we kept it at 4-2, I thought we could get a big hit and we did,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. In the eighth, Beckett gave up a single to J.J. Hardy and a double to Nick Markakis. Alfredo Aceves relieved with runners at second and third, then gave up Guerrero’s hard, two-run single to center field. “You want to pitch good all year long, but especially whenever your team needs you,” Beckett said. “You need to give them innings and quality innings and that was something I wasn’t able to do.” One night before Boston’s best starter faltered, star closer Jonathan Papelbon blew a save chance for only the second time this season when he gave up a three-run double to Robert Andino in the eighth that gave Baltimore a 7-5 win.
EXECUTION from page 2 Court yelled the same chant. As many as 700 demonstrators gathered outside the prison as a few dozen riot police stood watch, but the crowd thinned as the night wore on and the outcome became clear. The scene turned eerily quiet as word of the high court’s decision spread, with demonstrators hugging, crying, praying, holding candles and gathering around Davis’ family. Laura Moye of Amnesty International said the execution would be “the best argument for abolishing the death penalty.” “The state of Georgia is about to demonstrate why government can’t be trusted with the power over life and death,” she said. About 10 counterdemonstrators also were outside the prison, showing support for the death penalty and the family of Mark MacPhail, the man Davis was convicted of killing in 1989. MacPhail’s son and brother attended the execution. “He had all the chances in the world,” his mother, Anneliese MacPhail, said of Davis in a telephone
interview. “It has got to come to an end.” At a Paris rally, many of the roughly 150 demonstrators carried signs emblazoned with Davis’ face. “Everyone who looks a little bit at the case knows that there is too much doubt to execute him,” Nicolas Krameyer of Amnesty International said at the protest. Davis’ execution has been stopped three times since 2007, but on Wednesday the 42-year-old ran out of legal options. As his last hours ticked away, an upbeat and prayerful Davis turned down an offer for a special last meal as he met with friends, family and supporters. “Troy Davis has impacted the world,” his sister Martina Correia said at a news conference. “They say, ‘I am Troy Davis,’ in languages he can’t speak.” His attorney Stephen Marsh said Davis would have spent part of Wednesday taking a polygraph test if pardons officials had taken his offer seriously. “He doesn’t want to spend three hours away from his family on what could be the last day of his life if see DAVIS page 24

612 the lucky number as Meredith woman wins Lasik surgery from Laconia Eye Care
Dr. Andrew Garfinkle congratulates Crystal Furnee on her winning free Lasik surgery from Laconia Eye and Laser Center in Gilford.

Helping New Hampshire Feel Great At Home Since 1965
GILFORD — Everyone wants perfect vision. And thanks to the efforts of the staff at Laconia Eye and Laser Center and the team at Mix 94.1FM radio, one Lakes Region mother will be getting the chance at no cost to her. For a few weeks in August, listeners to the Central N.H. radio station have been given the opportunity to call in with guesses as part of the “Mix/Laconia Eye and Laser Center Lucky Number Game.” Callers were instructed to come up with a random number between 1 and 2020, with the only hint of prior incorrect qualifiers being told if they were too high or too low. Determined to enter her guess, Meredith resident Crystal Furnee finally had her shot at a guess on August 31 good thing she did. With her correct guess of 612, Furnee won the grand prize of a Lasik surgery from Doctors Andrew Garfinkle and Douglas Scott of Laconia Eye and Laser Center. Dr. Garfinkle summed it up when he said, “This program was a huge smash. It just felt so good to be able to help someone with the gift of better sight”. Dr. Garfinkle said the doctors and the Staff at Laconia Eye and Laser Center were very grateful to everyone involved in the success of the contest.

2011 Homecoming celebration at PSU Sept. 23–25 PLYMOUTH — Thousands of alumni, family members and guests will be attending the 2011 Homecoming and Family Celebration at Plymouth State University Sept. 23–25. “If you are somehow a part of Plymouth State, past or present, we want you to participate,” says Interim Director of Alumni Relations Rodney Ekstrom. He says there simply are not enough weekends of reliable weather throughout the year to host the number of events and activities various constituencies on campus would like to hold, so combining Homecoming and Family weekends into a single larger event made good sense. “It’s an opportunity for everyone to put on their PSU hat and celebrate our university,” Ekstrom says. Last fall more than 2,500 people participated in Homecoming and Family Celebration. Registration begins Friday, Sept.23 from 4–8 p.m. in the Hartman Union Fireplace Lounge. Guests can pick up their reserved tickets and weekend schedule. Saturday check-in will be held from 8:30 a.m. – 2 p.m. on the Alumni Green. Saturday events include the Foley 5K Footrace beginning with registration at 9 a.m.; Ice Arena and
Welcome Center tours and opening skating from 10 a.m. –noon, a College of Graduate Studies program at 10 a.m. in HUB 109 and a Harvest Festival on the Alumni Green from 11 a.m.–2 p.m. Interim Alumni Director Rodney Ekstrom says the Harvest Festival will feature local foods and sustainable products such as compostable and recyclable paper products from Sodexo. Student organizations will host activity tables, and plenty of events will keep participants of all ages busy. Sodexo will also host a barbecue featuring locally grown and produced foods. Tickets for this barbecue may be purchased at the event. Saturday athletic events will include field hockey vs. Westfield State at noon; football vs. UMass-Dartmouth at 1 p.m. and men’s soccer vs. Eastern Connecticut at 4:30 p.m. A jazz brunch for families and alumni is scheduled at Prospect Dining Hall from 10 a.m.–1:30 p.m Sunday.

Information session on new water quality laws planned for Monday in Meredith
MEREDITH — An overview of new laws relative to water quality and the authority of municipalities to develop effective water quality plans and regula-
tions will be presented at a Lakes Region Planning Commission meeting on Monday September 26. The meeting will be held at Meredith Community Center at 6 p.m. The 2011 Legislative session resulted in changes to the Comprehensive Shoreland Protection Act and to the spirit and intent of Water Resources planning overall. The latest version of the shoreland protection is now called the Shoreland Water Quality Protection Act, which changes several minimum subdivision and land use standards that had previously been adopted. There is also uncertainty whether other new laws affected the authority of municipalities to develop local or regional water resource protection plans and related local regulations. Both are of vital interest to area communities. In the Lakes Region,
Henry’s Pawprint sales at Sept. 8 market went to Laconia K-9 fund
land use change and management within watersheds are of critical importance. Much of the region’s economy is directly or indirectly related to water quality; changes that may increase the vulnerability of surface and ground waters to non-point sources of pollution require careful monitoring. Moreover, the authority of local municipalities to develop water resource protection plans and regulations has also been questioned due to recent legislation. Many area communities have recently approved ground water protection ordinances to help ensure the long-term viability of local drinking water supplies, and there is some concern whether such basic protections have been safeguarded. To help clarify and interpret these changes, Darlene Forst and Paul Susca from the NH Department of Environmental Services and Cordell Johnston from the NH Local Government Center will present an overview of the new Shoreland Water Quality Protection Act, as well as the intentional, and potential unintentional, ramifications of changes related to water resources protection planning. At this meeting, LRPC Commissioners will also be asked to determine the proposed FY13 LRPC membership appropriations. An association of 30 communities, the LRPC has active programs in land use and environmental planning, transportation, watershed preservation, economic development, mapping and technical assistance, and information services. All LRPC meetings are open to the public. For additional information or special accommodation, contact the LRPC at 279-8171 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Henry’s Pawprints, a local doggie delicacy, donated all proceeds from its’ September 8 Laconia Main Street Outdoor Marketplace sales to the Laconia Police Department K9 Fund. June Garen, with Henry, donates the proceeds to Ofﬁcer Kevin Shortt of the Laconia Police Department. Thanks to generous customers, $124 was donated to help defray the cost of a new police dog. Because of the positive response, Henry’s Pawprints has decided that all sales at Henry’s table on Thursday, September 22 will be donated to the fund.

By Holiday Mathis you’ll see. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). What you want to become good at, you will become good at. You have to apply yourself, though. That is normally not a problem for you, but today comes with extra-fascinating temptations. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your philosophy will lead you to other people who think along similar lines. It will be as though you are sending out a radio signal that only certain other receivers can hear. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There will be a choice. Should you be strong, or should you be weak? It will be important for you to take a dominant position regardless of whether you are actually feeling that way. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Sometimes you wonder if the exciting days are all behind you. Well, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Your interesting past will lead to an even more interesting future. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You simply cannot make the sacrifices and compromises you were once willing to make. It would be unwise, inconvenient and possibly physically impossible. So make a new and improved plan. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 22). You claim your space and expand your territory this year. A partner will help you, working and negotiating on your behalf. Your bold move in October yields results. January brings the start of an exciting project that will shape your year. Loving words and fun getaways will be featured in the spring. Taurus and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 34, 20, 1 and 32.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It will feel as though you are getting reacquainted with the real you after being out of touch for a while. You never really abandoned yourself completely. It’s just that it’s getting much easier to reflect who you are on the inside. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will let loose and enjoy yourself. Your playfulness is so attractive to people of all ages. You’ll revel in the attention you receive from people of several different generations. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You may stray outside your realm of expertise, but you’ll be amazed at what you can do with very little practice. It’s because you gravitate toward what matches your natural talents and abilities. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll be inspired to make subtle changes in your physiology. You’ll use your body to great effect. With a stronger posture and a greater physical presence, you’ll command the kind of respect you deserve. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll learn quickly and apply what you discover right away. The problem is, if you don’t use this knowledge over and over, you’ll forget the steps. That’s why it will be important to take notes. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll try something new that seems suspiciously like something you’ve tried a dozen times before. Alas, snake oil sold in different packaging is still snake oil. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). People put on their best clothes when they plan to see you -- at least figuratively. But you can bet that when they primp in the mirror, they are thinking about what

Sports card and collectibles show Sunday at Leavitt park in Laconia LACONIA — The Rich Velasquez Youth Sports Equipment Foundation will be hosting sports cards and collectible show at Leavitt Park on September 25 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Along with dealers set up to sell and trade, RVYSEF will be having an equipment swap in which people can bring unwanted equipment and trade with other equipment available. For more information or to get a table for selling or trading contact Jack Batchelder at email@example.com or call 520-4680. Tables are $15 for one or two tables for $25, first come first serve.
The Rich Velasquez Youth Sports Equipment Foundation (RVYSEF) was founded in 2008 after the untimely death of Rich Velasquez, who devoted countless hours to youth sports, as a father, coach, and umpire. He was involved in many youth sports leagues and believed children should never be restricted from playing due to a lack of the proper equipment, and he personally sponsored many children. His vision and dedication inspired his family and friends to carry on his legacy with the inception of the foundation named in his honor.

KENNESON from page 4 no bonus money up front and ended up signing a teaching contract at Haverhill Academy,’’ Kenneson recalls. “If Guy had been six feet tall they would have him signed him in a second.’’ That’s what Joe Barnea, former Union Leader sports editor, wrote about Kenneson during the 1960s as he campaigned in his column to get big league scouts to take a closer look at the diminutive star pitcher. It was a case of being born to soon. When Kenneson was trying to get into professional baseball there were only 16 major league teams, compared to the 30 it now has. “I’ve got no hard feelings. Baseball has been good to me,’’ says Kenneson, who has a scrapbook filled with clippings and photos from the 1950s and 1960s about his pitching exploits. In four years at PTC he posted a 16-3 record, striking out 159 batters in 173 innings while posting an earned run average of less than a run per game in his last two seasons. He still has fond memories of the Laconia Lakers team that he starred for in 1960 and which brought our big crowds at Memorial Park on Pearl Street for its home games. One of the highlights of the season was a 3-2 exhibition game victory by the Northeast League All Stars at Memorial Park which drew 560 fans and was the first defeat for the Clowns in 25 games. Kenneson had a shutout until the ninth inning in that game, fanning eight. Kenneson, who was named to the Plymouth State University Sports Hall of Fame in 1987, was pitching coach at Plymouth State for 23 years until he retired three years ago. On Memorial Day this year Kenneson was reunited with Heisman Trophy winner Joe Bellino, a Winchester, Mass., native who won that honor while playing for the U.S. Naval Academy in 1960. The two had played together in the outfield for the Hebron-Groton town team in a 1961 game against a Canadian all-star team. The meeting took place after Kenneson spoke at
for the Hebron-Groton team next to Bellino in center. “They wanted to beef up the team for the game against the Canadian team and someone knew that Bellino was in the area and was dating a girl whose family owned a summer camp on Newfound Lake so they asked him to play for us. I batted third and he batted fourth and we won the game rather easily,’’ Kenneson recalls. Another guest speaker at that service was Bernie Marvin, publisher of the Bridge Weekly in Woodsville, who went to high school with Bellino in Winchester and hadn’t seen him in over 50 years. Kenneson says he was astonished when Bellino came up to him after the Memorial Day ceremony and re-introduced himself to his outfield colleague of that long ago game. “You could have knocked me over with a feather. That was quite a surprise for me to talk about him and then have him come up to introduce himself,’’ said Kenneson.
Guy Kenneson of Plymouth is still active in the woods, cutting down trees and sawing them up for firewood at the age of 73. (Roger Amsden/for The Laconia Daily Sun)
the Hebron-Groton Memorial Day service. “I took a cantdog (a logging tool with a hook used for rolling logs) up to the microphone with me and told people that I when I was a kid we used to use these as baseball bats because we wanted to play so badly we’d use anything we could lay our hands on,’’ said Kenneson. He then described how he got to play in right field

DAVIS from page 14 it won’t make any difference,” Marsh said. Amnesty International says nearly 1 million people have signed a petition on Davis’ behalf. His supporters include former President Jimmy Carter, Pope Benedict XVI, a former FBI director, the NAACP, several conservative figures and many celebrities, including hip-hop star Sean “P. Diddy” Combs. “I’m trying to bring the word to the young people: There is too much doubt,” rapper Big Boi, of the Atlanta-based group Outkast, said at a church near the prison. The U.S. Supreme Court gave Davis an unusual opportunity to prove his innocence in a lower court last year, though the high court itself did not hear the merits of the case. He was convicted in 1991 of killing MacPhail, who was working as a security guard at the time. MacPhail rushed to the aid of a homeless man who prosecutors said Davis was bashing with a handgun after asking him for a beer. Prosecutors said Davis had a smirk on his face as he shot the officer to death in a Burger King parking lot in Savannah.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, September 22, 2011— Page 25
Dear Annie: I have been seeing “Captain” for three years. His 13-year-old daughter, “Rosie,” is horse crazy after riding at summer camp and is now taking lessons locally. As a former horse trainer, I am thrilled at her interest. However, she expresses resentment with the sparse guidance I have given. So now when I take her to lessons, I stay out of the way. I understand this is not unusual. My problem is, Captain wants to provide a facility with horses at his home. Due to my experience, he expects me to be the person who manages the barn, provides guidance to Rosie and acts as her riding partner. I am reluctant to assume this position. Rosie and I have a peaceful relationship, mostly because I am consistently pleasant and supportive. I sense this is a fragile time for Rosie, who is a little spoiled, but who I know will someday become a thoughtful young woman. I don’t want to risk the little compatibility we have. Captain will likely follow my stance on whether or not to proceed with a barn at his home. What do you say? -- Montana Gal Dear Montana: You have a good grasp of the boundaries a girlfriend should respect when dealing with her partner’s teenage daughter. Although it is possible the barn will bring the two of you closer, it’s equally likely that Rosie will chafe if you are in a position of authority over her. Ask yourself whether you can maintain the necessary boundaries if you accept this responsibility, and explain your concerns to Captain. It is OK to say no. But if you decide to do it, we recommend bringing Rosie into the conversation. After all, her father is doing this for her benefi t, and she should have some say in the matter. Dear Annie: I’ve been with my girlfriend for seven months. She is incredible, and I can easily see myself spend-
ing the rest of my life with her. The only problem is that she is still listed as “single” on Facebook. This makes me feel ignored and hidden away. My girlfriend says she likes her status to be private and doesn’t pay that much attention to her Facebook page anyway. I explained that it hurts me to feel nonexistent, but she won’t change it. What should I do? -- Tom Dear Tom: Find a new girlfriend. Listing her status as “single” is no more private than listing it any other way, and she can keep it hidden if she chooses. The fact that she won’t change it after you have told her it is hurtful indicates that she doesn’t much care how you feel. We’d say she does not consider your relationship as promising as you do. Sorry. Dear Annie: “Cold in Michigan” said his family always makes him sleep on the sofa when the other relatives use the bedrooms. I understand his dilemma. Being a single 40-year-old woman, my family thinks the couch is OK for me. What they forget is I need privacy like any other normal adult. Why should my teenage nieces or my younger brother and his girlfriend have more privacy than I do? I would like to lay out my clothes, toiletries, contact case, etc. and wake up on my time, not necessarily when the 4-year-old wants to watch “Thomas the Train” at 6 a.m. Also, since I am in the living room, I am hostess from morning until night, and everyone else uses the space where I am expected to relax and sleep. So I started staying in local cottages. My family says I am a snob. I say I saved my sanity. -- Black Sheep of N.H. Dear Black Sheep: We agree that everyone needs privacy, but homes can only provide so much of it. You are smart to stay elsewhere. We would, too.
