Meredith vets elect to keep City manager says Laconia can’t justify spending money to tear down Weirs saloon smoking at Legion Post BY ADAM DRAPCHO THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

MEREDITH — Smokers, in the past several years, have experienced an increasing constriction of the number of places where they can legally enjoy a cigarette. Viewed from the other side of the ash tray, nonsmokers have more and more places where they can go without fear of inhaling secondhand smoke. Outside of their own private property, one of the final remaining gathering spaces where people can light up is in private clubs, including canteens operated by veterans’ organization like the American Legion and see SMOKING page 14

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — City Manager Scott Myers says the city is not aggressively pursuing its own demolition of the former landmark Weirs restaurant and hotel that burned a year ago. Myers said that the city attorneys had been conversing with Wide Open Saloon owner Brandi Baldi over the summer but said there have been no conversations over the past few months. “The city just can’t justify spending the money to evaluate and possible tear it down without knowing how we’re to get

our money back,” Myers said. As far as Weirs business owner Jeff Thurston is concerned, tearing down the old saloon at the city’s expense is a question of the city’s responsibility to maintain its reputation as the City on the Lake. “What if this was right next to City Hall or in the center of downtown?” Thurston asked. His family’s business, Thurston’s Marina is located right next door to the remain of the saloon. “If the city needs to patch a road or repair a bridge it doesn’t worry about reimbursement,” he added. see WEIRS page 13

Hilton denies charging government $16 each for muffins

WASHINGTON (AP) — The government did not pay $16 apiece for breakfast muffins at a Justice Department conference, no matter what the department’s inspector general thinks. So says Hilton Worldwide, which hosted the 2009 legal training conference in Washington. Even the IG’s own report issued this week acknowledges that the government got more than muffins for its money. Hilton Worldwide, which manages and franchises hotels including the Capital Hilton where the conference took place, says the price included not only breakfast baked goods but also fresh fruit, coffee, tea, soft drinks, tax and tips. It says the report misinterpreted its invoices, which often use shorthand and don’t reflect the full menu and service provided. The IG’s audit of excessive spending at see MUFFINS page 14

Dow falls 391 points on worldwide fears about economy NEW YORK (AP) — Investors began giving in to fears Thursday that a global recession is already under way, and stock markets shuddered around the world. Selling started in Asia, picked up speed in Europe and sent Wall Street near its worst finish of the year. The Dow Jones industrial average lost 391 points and at one point was down more than 500, a return to the volatility that gripped the market this summer. One financial indicator after another showed that investors are losing hope that the global economy can keep growing. The price of oil and metals such as copper, which depend on economic demand, fell sharply. Traders bought Treasury bonds and the dollar for safety. FedEx, a company that ships so many goods it is considered a barometer of the U.S. economy, had to lower its earnings forecast for the year because customers

are putting off purchases of electronics and other gadgets from China. The Dow fell 391.01 points, or 3.5 percent, and closed at 10,733.83. The selling was not just steep but broad: Nineteen stocks on the New York Stock Exchange fell for every one that rose. At one point, the Dow was down more than 500 points. “Markets rely on confidence and certainty. Right now there is neither,” said John Canally, an economic strategist at LPL Financial, an investment firm in Boston. It was the second consecutive rout in the stock market since Wednesday afternoon, when the Federal Reserve announced a change in strategy for fighting the economic slowdown — a bid to lower longterm interest rates and get people and companies to spend more money. Economic news was bad around the world. A closely watched survey in Europe indicated a recession could be on the way

there, and a manufacturing survey suggested a slowdown in China, which has been one of the hottest economies. “The probability of going back into recession is higher now than at any point in the recovery,” said Tim Quinlan, an economist at Wells Fargo. He put his odds of a recession at 35 percent. Christine Lagarde, the head of the International Monetary Fund, said the world economy was “entering a dangerous phase.” She told an annual meeting of the IMF and World Bank that nations need credible plans to get their debt under control. In the United States, investors poured money into American government debt, which they see as less risky than stocks even as the nation wrestles with how to tame its long-term budget problems. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note hit 1.71 percent — the lowest since the see STOCKS page 15

GENEVA (AP) — One of the very pillars of physics and Einstein’s theory of relativity — that nothing can go faster than the speed of light — was rocked Thursday by new findings from one of the world’s foremost laboratories. European researchers said they clocked an oddball type of subatomic particle called a neutrino going faster than the 186,282 miles per second that has long been considered the cosmic speed limit.

The claim was met with skepticism, with one outside physicist calling it the equivalent of saying you have a flying carpet. In fact, the researchers themselves are not ready to proclaim a discovery and are asking other physicists to independently try to verify their findings. “The feeling that most people have is this can’t be right, this can’t be real,” said James Gillies, a spokesman for the European Organization for Nuclear Research,

or CERN, which provided the particle accelerator that sent neutrinos on their breakneck 454-mile trip underground from Geneva to Italy. Going faster than light is something that is just not supposed to happen according to Einstein’s 1905 special theory of relativity — the one made famous by the equation E equals mc2. But no one is rushing out to rewrite the science books just yet. see NEUTRINO page 12

N.H. declares Celina’s death a homicide; specific cause kept a secret WEST STEWARTSTOWN, N.H. (AP) — The death of an 11-year-old girl whose body was found in a river last month was a homicide, New Hampshire authorities said Thursday. Investigators said they also know what caused the death of Celina Cass. But they aren’t making it public, because they say doing so could harm the integrity of the investigation. “The investigation into the facts and circumstances of Celina Cass’s murder remains active,” Senior Assistant Attorney General Jane Young said

Government opposes giving full severance pay to gays dismissed from military under ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’

WASHINGTON (AP) — Two days after repeal of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy against gays serving openly in the military, the Obama administration was in court Thursday opposing a lawsuit seeking full severance pay for those dismissed under the law. The American Civil Liberties Union is seeking class action status for 142 people who only got half pay after their discharge because of being gay. But the Justice Department asked the U.S. Court of Federal Claims to dismiss the case. Judge Christine Odell Cook Miller said she probably will let the case continue and questioned why the government wouldn’t pay now that the law has changed. see GAYS page 4

in a statement. Celina was reported missing July 26. Her body was found a week later in the Connecticut River, not far from her West Stewartstown home. A reward has been offered for information leading to an arrest. No suspects have been named. Young said Thursday that the cause of death was determined through information gleaned from the investigation and from toxicology tests. The news came after investigators met with Celina’s mother and sister for two hours. Luisia Cass

told The Associated Press she had no comment after leaving the Coos County attorney’s office in Lancaster. Luisia Cass was accompanied Thursday by a friend and her 13-year-old daughter, who was clutching a stuffed panda bear. A family friend confirmed that Luisia Cass has 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.

ATLANTA (AP) — Bedbugs don’t make you sick. But the poisons used to kill them can. A government study released Thursday found that dozens of Americans have fallen ill from the insecticides, and a North Carolina woman died after using 18 cans of chemical fogger to attack the tiny blood suckers. Because many of the cases, including the lone death, were do-it-yourselfers who misused the chemicals or applied the wrong product, federal health officials are warning consumers to be careful and urging them to call professionals. The report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention counted 80 illnesses and one death linked to the insecticides over three years. Most of the cases were in New York City, the apparent epicenter of a recent U.S. bedbug comeback. The CDC was able to get data from 12 states, and

only seven had reports of such illnesses. One was New York, where bedbugs have become a highly publicized problem and where health officials have also been extra vigilant about reporting unusual chemical poisonings. Investigators were relieved to find a relatively small number of cases. “At this point, it’s not a major public health problem,” said Dr. Geoff Calvert, a CDC investigator who co-authored the study. Bedbugs are wingless, reddish-brown insects that bite people and animals to draw blood for their meals. Though their bites can cause itching and welts, they are not known to spread disease. “There’s nothing inherently dangerous about bedbugs,” said Dr. Susi Vassallo, an emergency medicine doctor who works at New York City’s Bellevue Hossee BEDBUGS page 10

Laconia man, on the run for 3 years, brought back home after arrest in Tenn. By gAil oBeR

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — A former city man who was convicted for simple assault after his girlfriend dropped from a third-story downtown apartment window in 2005 is back in local custody after being on the run for three years. U.S. marshal and Sheriff’s Deputy William Wright who who is assigned to the U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force said Joshua Knight, 31, was found in Cookeville, Tenn. after a run-in with police in that community. Knight has had numerous encounters with area police, most notoriously when he was initially accused of throwing his former girlfriend from a third story Colonial Theater building window in October of 2005. Charges of first degree assault were dropped and he pleaded guilty to one count of simple assault and served a year in jail.

More recently, he was convicted in Belknap County Superior Court in March of 2008 for a 2006 charge of possession of methadone. He was sentenced to one year with all but six months suspended and credited with 112 day of pretrial confinement. While incarcerated, Knight was allegedly involved in a altercation with another prisoner on July 5, 2008 but was Joshua Knight released from jail on Sept. 12, 2008 after finishing his sentence for the drug conviction. He was ordered to report to his probation officer on Sept. 19, 2008. Court documents indicate Knight came for the Sept. 19 meeting but his probation officer was out of the

office. When the probation officer tried to call Knight to reschedule, his phone message machine was full. A Belknap County grand jury indicted Knight for felony assault on Sept. 25, 2008. According to court records attempts in October of 2008 to find Knight were unsuccessful. On Dec. 12, 2008, Belknap County Judge Larry Smukler issued a warrant for his arrest. According to Wright, Knight remained a fugitive until August of 2011 when he was allegedly involved in a crime in Tennessee. He said Tennessee authorities decided not to prosecute him on their charge but rather charge him for being a fugitive from justice and contacted Wright make arrangements for his return to New Hampshire. Wright said Knight waived extradition and has been in transit from Tennessee until yesterday. Judge James O’Neill III signed a a bail agreement yesterday for $15,000 cash bail for the probation violation in Belknap County Jail. GAYS from page 3 “Your timing is exquisite — two days after the policy goes into effect eliminating ‘don’t ask, don’t tell,’ here we are,” she said as she took the bench. “I would consider this to be an unenviable argument to have at this time,” she told the government’s attorney later. The case was filed by the ACLU on behalf of former Air Force Staff Sgt. Richard Collins of Clovis, N.M. He was honorably discharged in 2006 after nine years of service when two civilians who worked with him at Cannon Air Force Base reported they saw him kiss his boyfriend in a car about 10 miles from the base. The decorated sergeant was off-duty and not in uniform at the time, according to the lawsuit. In an interview Thursday, Collins said he and his partner, who are still together, always have been discreet about showing affection in public. “That one time I just happened to lean over and kiss him on the cheek,” he recalled. “He said something sweet.” The Air Force paid Collins $12,351 instead of the $25,702 he expected after his discharge. Separation pay is granted to military personnel who served at least six years but were involuntarily discharged, part of an effort to ease their transition into civilian life. But the Defense Department has a list of conditions that trigger an automatic reduction in that pay, including homosexuality, unsuccessful drug or alcohol treatment or discharge in the interests of national security. That policy went into effect in 1991, two years before “don’t ask, don’t tell” became law. The suit argues it is unconstitutional for the Defense Department to unilaterally cut the amount for people discharged for homosexuality. The administration is not defending the merits of the policy. Instead, Justice Department lawyer L. Misha Preheim argued the defense secretary has sole discretion to decide who gets what separation pay and the court cannot rewrite military regulations. from following page volunteers the tools they need for affective advocacy. Jennifer Beetle, who along with her husband, Allan, hosted the meeting, says that she has been involved with CASA for two years. “It was something I thought I’d do after I retired. But then I realized that I was able to do it now, that I could fit it into my schedule and I wouldn’t have to wait. It’s a very rewarding experience and I hope to see more people get involved,’’ said Beetle. Sink said that CASA received 40-percent of its overall revenue from a contract with the state court sytem but has to raise $600,000 to $700,000 a year in additional revenue. She said that cities like Manchester and Nashua have provided local funds for CASA, as have towns like Tilton and Sandwich, which she says is very encouraging. Tilton selectmen attended the meeting and board member Katherine Dawson said that the CASA volunteers “fill a huge gap’’ and that she is in awe of the dedication and commitment that they show.

Volunteer advocates for children earn special praise from judge, more needed BY ROGER AMSDEN FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

GILFORD — A cadre of dedicated and well-trained volunteers, who are working to help the 1,100 New Hampshire children who are thrust into court each year because they are victims of physical or sexual abuse, neglect or abandonment, have earned praise from Franklin District Court Judge Edward “Ned” Gordon. Speaking at an informational meeting about the role of Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) last night at Patrick’s Pub, Gordon said “what we see is very good outcomes for kids’’ as a result of the involvement of the volunteers, who Gordon says are far more effective in representing the best interests of children than are court-appointed guardians. Gordon said that when he became a judge six years ago one of the people who testified on his behalf at a confirmation hearing was an Ashland woman whom he had helped in 1995 and whom a court-appointed guardian sought to bar from a courtroom on a custody hearing about her two grandchildren, who were in state custody as a result of abuse and neglect charges. “She didn’t feel her daughter was getting a fair shake. And it was obvious that the court-appointed guardian hadn’t seen the kids at all. It was clear that the children didn’t have a voice in court that day,” said Gordon. He said that incident and others created within him a degree of cynicism about the representation children received in court and it wasn’t until he started seeing the effectiveness of CASA volunteers in representing children in cases that came before him that his mind was changed. Gordon said that Franklin is a “tough town’’ with a high incidence of domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, and that from the bench “what you see is kids who have no chance in life. What CASA does to make a difference for them is inspiring. There are real people out there knowing what’s good for kids who can make a better case for them than a lawyer or a social

worker.’’ He urged those attending the informational reception to get involved and make a difference by becoming a CASA volunteer. CASA came to New Hampshire in 1988 as the result of an Marcia “Martry” Sink’s effort. Sink, who is now president and CEO of CASA, had been a foster parent, and, subsequently adopting a foster child who became one of her three sons, She says that she came to the realization that victimized children of New Hampshire needed advocates to give them a voice in court. In 1988 she founded CASA of NH, bringing the Seattle-based concept of providing volunteer court advocates to the victimized children. Now, 23 years later, CASA has a statewide network of offices with 23 staff members, 14 of whom provide direct supervision and oversight to CASA’s 450 volunteers, and represents 85 percent of all children who come before New Hampshire courts in abuse and neglect cases. Sink said last year in Belknap County there were 47 such cases involving 76 children and that while CASA has 23 volunteers in the county it can use many more. Bob Landry of Laconia, a retired military officer, said that he has been a CASA volunteer for two and a half years and feels that it is his job “to be the eyes and the ears of the judges around the state’’. Landry said that he works with three families and four children and that his work, typically around 10-15 hours a month, is both challenging and rewarding. Like other volunteers, he had to complete a comprehensive 40-hour pre-service training.

What developing countries can teach the United States As Barack Obama huffs and puffs about his tax plan, which is unlikely to pass in the Democratic-majority Senate much less the Republicancontrolled House, Robert Zoellick, president of the World Bank, has provided a much broader view of where the United States stands amid great changes in the world and some useful guidance on what direction public policy ought to take. Zoellick spoke at George Washington University on Sept. 14, midway between Obama’s Sept. 8 speech to a joint session of Congress calling for a second stimulus package and his Sept. 19 speech in the Rose Garden laying out the tax increases that he evidently believes will, somehow, lead to the creation of jobs. Zoellick devoted some of his speech to World Bank business — his “Beyond Aid” proposals to stimulate Third World development through private-sector involvement and his call for programs to address the needs of women. But he also provided a much broader perspective than most officials do, starting with a comparison of where things stood when the foundations of the World Bank were laid at the Bretton Woods Conference in 1944 and where we are today. Back then, developed countries accounted for 80-percent of the world’s gross domestic product and the United States for nearly 50-percent. Much of the world was in ruins, starvation was rampant, disease afflicted millions of children. Today, we’ve been seeing enormous growth in what we have been accustomed to call “developing” countries. They have been growing nearly four times faster than “developed” countries, and they account for nearly half of total global investment and global economic growth today. In effect, we are going through a period when China and India — with one-third of the world’s population — are moving rapidly from (to use the old terminology) Third World to First World status. That’s true as well of millions in developing countries in Latin America, Asia and even Africa. Nothing like this enormous transformation has ever happened before, and nothing like it will ever happen again. Interestingly, these countries have developed in part by copying Western institutions but also by creating their own public policies. Examples cited by Zoellick include Brazil’s and Mexico’s cash transfers (bolsa familial) to mothers who vaccinate children and send them to school, Turkey’s macroeconomic policies, Singapore’s open economy and intolerance of corruption, India’s information technology services and Colombia’s mass transit systems.

These policies have spurred growth in places where few experts predicted it would be possible, from steamy Singapore to Brazil’s sugary northeast. They are a reminder that policies that encourage self-advancing behavior and leave the way open for human creativity to flourish can accomplish more than simple transfers from the affluent to the impoverished. That this unprecedented rapid development has caused some problems for the United States and other advanced countries should be no surprise. Any sweeping change renders some old practices obsolete and requires some institutional adjustment. Zoellick, who served in the Reagan and both Bush administrations, says he is skeptical of predictions of American, European or Japanese decline, but admits we have work to do. The U.S. needs “credible and definitely possible action — not just short-term fixes — on debt and deficits to restore confidence.” Nations need, he said, to “focus on structural and tax reforms to spur private-sector growth, boost productivity and create jobs.” And advanced countries need to practice what they preach on fiscal discipline, free trade and sustainable debt. All of which sounds like a pretty stringent critique of what Barack Obama has been up to lately. One of the underappreciated truths about Obama is that he isn’t all that interested in public policy — much less so than Bill Clinton, considerably less so than George W. Bush. He was content to leave the details of the stimulus package to congressional appropriators and the details of Obamacare to the dealcutters squeezing out the last few votes in Nancy Pelosi’s office. The result is laws that don’t work nearly as well as advertised. His latest proposals, for $447 billion of stimulus spending and goodness knows how much in tax increases, are not designed to become law but to provide a backdrop for campaign ads. The Obama formula of higher taxes and no significant change in entitlements is a formula for transforming America into something like continental Europe — even as it becomes clearer than ever that the European model is collapsing. The times call for serious governance, as Zoellick says. But Obama seems uninterested in serious policy issues and interested only in cheapshot campaigning.

LETTERS Don’t blame DOT, it’s the Legislature that’s been cutting budget To the editor, I read with interest the front page article in The Sun’s September 20 issue reporting that the state does not have funds to reconstruct portions of Meredith Neck Road that are in disrepair. It was reported that State Rep. and Meredith Selectboard member Collette Worsman stated that the DOT was responsible for the road, and asked why they could not reconstruct the road and what their plans were for the road for the next 12 months. They stated there are no plans for the road. Yes, the DOT is responsible for the roads but the Legislature is responsible for giving them the budget to do what they are responsible for. As a member of the House Finance Committee, Rep. Worsman would be well aware of what was taken out of the DOT budget this year and in subsequent years. It should not be a surprise that there are not plans for the road: without sufficient state funding the DOT has insufficient resources to deploy. The budget that was passed this year has a significant impact on the DOT budget, with an 11.5-percent decrease in 2011, an additional 11-percent decrease in 2012 and an additional 13-percent decrease in 2013. In response to their reduced budget, the DOT has cut 42 employees; reduced the winter maintenance budget by some $2-million; reduced the salt and sand budget by 26-percent; has a plan to not plow “low volume roads” (roads that are traveled by 5,000 or fewer cars a day) between 9 p.m. and 4 a.m.; and to allow snow to build up to 5 – 7 inches before sending plow crews out.

The chair of the Transportation Comm., Rep. Gene Chandler (R-Bartlett) said that these DOT plans are not acceptable and could have “huge ramifications” on tourism and revenue for N.H. Isn’t it his committee that is responsible for ensuring the DOT has the funding required to keep the roads safe and appealing to tourists? Many have said that the budget cuts Reps. Chandler and Worsman help pass are unacceptable but they were passed regardless of the loudly voiced concerns. Now even Reps. Chandler and Worsman are voicing concern over some of the negative consequences of this budget – a budget which dramatically reduced revenues; made sweeping draconian cuts; and downshifted costs to the cities and towns — a budget they both help architect. The major factor to the DOT budget reduction was the Legislature’s decision not to renew the $30 motor vehicle registration surcharge – causing a reduction of $90-million in revenue primarily targeted for road maintenance. A loss of $90-million in revenue to the DOT is very significant to the state and potentially our safety. Who would not have paid that $30 for necessary road maintenance? Dangerous roads are one of the consequences of the budget, there are and will be many other dangerous consequences. As we travel the slippery roads this winter; don’t’ look at the DOT and town crews as responsible – look at the N.H. Statehouse. Denise Doyle Meredith

Professor has cherry picked facts, omitted info & told whoppers To the editor, Plagiarism, plagiarism I say! Here in Tuesday’s paper I find Leo R. (you know who) Sandy has stolen my oft written words and made them his own. Leo, I’m really surprised at you. Actually, to use the “lol” thing (laughing out loud) as the younger folks like to use, Leo has turned the very things I have been accusing him of for years and is now saying them about his critics. The professor has so often cherry picked facts, omitted information, and told whoppers. I’m

others of doing the very same thing. Geeeeeze! What makes his column even more bizarre is he claims that he was lied to by everyone from birth to collage except grandma. What about mom and dad? Frankly, if it were me, I would be far more suspicious of those college teachers telling me that everyone who loved me , cared for me and taught me up to that point were lying SOBs. Do you really think we’re all that dumb? Steve Earle

LETTERS The Constitutional definition of treason is right there in Article 3 To the editor, In regards to Mr. Kyntych’s response to my assessment of Harry Accornero’s rhetoric, he says I gloss over the facts. Harry did not present facts; he presented specious claims accompanied by rash accusations. Then Mr. Kyntych goes on to criticize the source of the immigration chart I presented but did not present any “facts with sources” to refute mine. He thinks because he says something is so, it is so. It doesn’t work that way in the real world. And do note that Mr. Kyntych uses the word socialist and the phrase immigrant-rights precisely because right wingers will automatically reject data due to this tactic. Anti-abolitionists and anti-suffragists also used the word socialist frequently, too. Where are Mr. Kyntych’s alleged facts from? Throwing out numbers without backing them up is not a rebuttal. He goes on to say that Obama refused to enforce immigration laws. Immigration is a very difficult issue because it deals with real people with real dreams; American dreams, not numbers on a piece of paper as a heartless GOP crowd might think. Reagan, Bush I and Bush II all believed in immigration reform that the far right hated. John McCain pathetically changed his position just to get the nomination in 2008. Now Mr. Perry from Texas gets booed by right wing extremists because he won’t punish children for their parents ‘crime’ of looking for a better life in America. These people would let immigrant children die in the streets before they could get an education or medical care. The truth is that Obama is enforcing immigration law better than his predecessors. Then Mr. Kyntych gets to the money issue and falls right into that trap of attacking sources instead of providing his own. This is diversionary and obfuscating. Mr. Kyntych says the oil rig chart doesn’t show the number of drilling rigs. Right across the top of the chart it says in black letters “NUMBER OF OIL-DRILLING RIGS IN U.S”. See for yourselves at http://www. grist.org/phpThumb/phpThumb. php?src=http://www.grist.org/i/as... Then Greg starts talking about government data but again offers no competing sources. And note that the oil rig chart was from Baker-Hughes, one of the world’s oilfield service leaders. Furthermore, Mr Kyntych wants to know why progressives resort to hate speech? There is not a more venomous group than the right. Seen those signs? Now mind you, Mr. Kyntych is defending Mr. Accornero, who made sure he put “HUSAIN” in quotes when speaking of the president. Reprehensible. Harry is deliberately trying to create prejudiced hatred against the president by using a name that is associated with

Muslims. Right wingers hate Muslims. Calling the president treasonous is designed to fuel more hatred and Mr. Kyntych is defending it. Mr. Kyntych also doesn’t seem to know what the Constitutional definition of treason is. It is not “defined as an agregious violation of an oath of office”. There is the very specific definition of treason in Article 3: “Treason against the United States, shall consist ONLY in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court. The Congress shall have power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.” Attacking Fort Sumpter fits treason better. Calling illegal immigrants entering the country a foreign invasion is also specious. Right wingers lose one case after another in courts because they have a misguided understanding of the Constitution. Mr. Kyntych wants to know “Why is it that the left wing can criticize a Republican president to the point of calling him hateful names but a Republican can’t criticize a liberal president’s policies or actions and when the president is a minority they ignore the facts and start playing the race card?” Tit for tat? The right has proven themselves racists with their signs, birtherism, Kenyan krap, Muslim bunk, nooses, and watermelon jokes. These are very reminiscent of the pro-segregation rallies of the 1960s. The right is appealing to xenophobia: “he is not one of us; he is inferior”. Signs that call the president a half-breed Muslim are what are agregious, Mr. Knytych. Check out my collection of tea party images, signs, and 150 videos at http://nutjobexpress. blogspot.com No criticism of a Republican president from progressives and moderates ever stooped this low. And then we get to Greg’s boast about Republican history. The present day GOP does not even remotely resemble “The Party of Lincoln”. It has been taken over by Constitution Party types, religious fanatics and libertarian extremists who prefer raw quazi-theocratic Social Darwinism to civilization. And look at the way they address the 14th Amendment. They hate the equal protection clause because they realize that it hinders their agenda. They hate the natural born citizenship part because they are rabidly anti-immigrant (non-whites). Who now fights gay rights, reproductive freedom, and worker’s rights? Today’s Republican Party is not a party of Lincoln or liberty. James Veverka Tilton

Dean Dexter

A lady from India You’re in the fifth grade and it’s the first day of school. Big stuff. You’re well scrubbed, skinny, trudging along the streets of the South End, from a house on Court Street, over to Academy, across South Main, where a cop of another time, a local legend, Lawrence “Robby” Robinson, mans the cross-walk at the foot of Pine Hill. This man is not a retired person wearing a baseball cap and orange stripes on his back. He is a gruff beat patrolman in full uniform, maybe six feet tall, slinging a night stick. Other kids are there, waiting for his signal to cross. Susan Royal, a classmate, suddenly says “Hi, Mr. Robinson.” He briefly smiles at her, says nothing, but glares at the rest of us as we walk, cars stopped in the street. There is more trudging up Pine Hill, a long walk on boney legs to a 1920s era brick pile that was then Batchelder Street School. But, lo, the teacher is slight and dark, from India, no less. India? Yes, with jet black hair pulled back tightly into a small bun. Her eyes are bright and large, missing nothing. Her voice is exotic with a distinct accent, but her diction is acute, careful, precise, easy to listen to. Loud and strong when it needs to be. Her demeanor is quite forthright, yet kindly. Very sure of herself. Her movements are graceful, like a model’s. I, frankly, did not know what to make of her. We learned later that Miss Pestonji, as we called her, an orphan from Calcutta, was no push-over. She kept us in line both in the classroom as well as on the small sandlot during recess, where we played baseball. But she did so with such class. And she was so nice about it. We have recently read in the newspapers about the passing of Daulette “Dolly” (Pestonji) O’Mara, age 84, a teacher in Laconia for

some 37 years, retiring in 1993. We had the pleasure of knowing Mrs. O’Mara as a teacher and as a friend. We had lost contact since I had moved away, and the years slipped by. But there are memories here. Good ones. It is an irony of life that in her late sixties, my own mother, recently widowed, got on a plane to spend 18 years as a Christian missionary in India, founding schools and orphanages in Orissa, north of Calcutta, retiring only a few years ago, in her mid-eighties. Not often, but occasionally, Miss Pestonji would tell her students of the land of her youth. She spoke of the Dalai Lama, the first we’d heard of this so-called God-Man of Tibet, and his difficulties with Red China, which continue today. Then he was in his 20s. Now he is an old man. And we no longer call China Red, since it is so green with our dollar bills. Miss Pestonji would tell of Mahatma Gandhi and his struggles and assassination, and how it all brought about the birth of the great Indian democracy. I was particularly struck with the saga of the Black Hole of Calcutta, where she said a great atrocity occurred in the 1750s, in which British soldiers and Anglo-Indians were held captive, many dying of the heat and lack of oxygen. Today, some historians say that perhaps not that many died, maybe it was 40 or so, instead of several hundred. No one really knows. It is a mystery. Like Miss Pestonji was a mystery. A pleasant mystery, to a small boy in a small town. A gracious, gentle, beautiful, smart as a whip mystery. (Dean Dexter is a former chairman of the Laconia School Board, at which time, Mrs. O’Mara, the former Miss Daulette Pestonji of Calcutta, continued to take careful note of his behavior.)

from preceding page lizing the natural resources; skiing at Gunstock (Belknap) in the winter, hiking the mountains in the spring and fall, and water skiing on Lake Opechee and Winnipesaukee in the summer, reminds me of our precious environment which is under assault world wide with overuse and a lack of caring for its sustainability. Properly disposing of trash is one way for all of us to leave our footprint. The meeting focused on costs of the program. Differing views emerged with connotations of freedoms, individual liberty expressing the state motto — “Live free or die”. Other views considered that we have a fragile ecosystem and this needs to be considered. One thing was made clear — that an alternative solution to the current rising costs of hauling trash needs to be addressed. Money earned from this program or a similar one could be turned back into the general city fund to offset other costs rather than raise taxes. Some people did not want to consider any proposal that would cost money in the short run. The old motor oil advertisement, “Pay me now or pay me later” came to mind. Not addressing the problem only postpones a more expensive solution in the future. I was struck how emotion can cloud thinking. It seemed that people on both sides come to the meeting with a preconceived way of thinking. Rather than “hear” what is being discussed, knee jerk responses were emotionally put forth. Some did not take the time to understand the information and process of the meeting underway. We all need to take a fresh look at how trash will be disposed in Laconia, face the problem and think of constructive solutions. This need not be a partisan issue. Trash impacts

us all. A clear solution is needed. The City Council has provided a forum for citizen input. It was mentioned that more town meetings would be held seeking input. Relative to the size of Laconia, only a handful of people attended Wednesday night. This is a chance for everyone to get involved. Both papers offer a forum to communicate solutions to the trash problem. Lately, most letters to the editors focus on partisan issues, a microcosm of the national discussions. The highly charged emotional attacks on individuals do little to generate solutions. The local trash issue offers a chance for Laconia citizens to come together to find a solutions. The two local newspapers are one forum through articles and letter to the editor. Through the use of computers, we as citizens could communicate using blogs and other tools. The upcoming forums with city officials will allow for coordination with local government who look for our input. Since coming to Laconia, we have been recycling trash as well as composting all food waste. Since then, trash for two people has dropped from two barrels to 1-2 kitchen size bags. Recycling now includes one green recycling container and one large trash can with recycling stickers. We are planning a raised bed garden in the spring, which will be a token effort for sustainability. Solutions — while the discussion goes on finding solutions to the city trash problem there are immediate steps we as citizens could take: 1. Get ourselves educated about recycling, both in theory and what is occurring locally. 2. Once educated, teach others about sustainability including recycling one’s trash. 3. Recycle, repair, renovate, re-use

4. Begin communicating ideas with each other utilizing local newspapers, community forums, computers using blogs and other social media. 5. Attend community meetings discussing the recycling issues. 6. Commit to practical solutions rather than negative attacks based on ideology. These are my immediate suggestions. Others need to be brought forth for rationale discussion and consideration. Life lessons can be learned here. We can take a step back and listen to what others have to say. This is not a sign of weakness or that we do not have strong opinions. It allows us to dismiss our anger and understand others’ opinions on recycling understanding that they may disagree. In this way we can look at all options and pick the best of what is offered. Humbling ourselves removes anger from the discussion and solutions arise. The emotional ego becomes secondary to solving the problems of recycling. Being flexible reduces contentiousness and defensivness. This does not mean we do not have strong opinions on recycling; only that we respect and consider all the options and cooperate on finding the best solution. Are we going to be takers — not caring about the environment; saying no to recycling because someone may insist that it impinges on our liberty and freedoms? Are we willing to expend effort and yes, some costs, so our children and grandchildren have a clean, sustainable environment? We don’t own the air, water and the natural earth. It is there for all to purposefully enjoy. It must be respected and preserved. I came back to Laconia to enjoy its lakes and mountains in all seasons. I did not realize how beautiful the areas is until I moved away. We need to preserve this. One way is to recycle including trash as well as composting, a simple process that does not require an agricultural degree. Hopefully, we will become givers — preserving the earth for its beauty and sustainability, a gift for our children and generations to come. Recycling is a beginning.

Perhaps hate signs haven’t appeared at ‘northern’ Tea Party rallies To the editor, To Mr. Earle, in response to your questions in today’s edition I offer this data: Doug Lamborn a Republican Senator (Colorado) on 8/1/11 referred to the president as a “tar baby”. On 8/2/11 he acknowledged the insult and did apologize. You can pull up the video online and watch it yourself. On 8/2/11 on Reverend Al Sharpton’s show, which I was watching, Pat Buchanan referred to the president as a “boy”. On 8/3/11 he tried to make excuses for this insult but admitted he made the statement. The video of this can be pulled up online as well. As to the signs, give it up. They appeared at Tea Party events/rallies. These rallies were broadcast on all TV news stations and several news reporters, including a reporter on WLNH, discussed the signs. Perhaps it hasn’t happened in the northern states but it is a common occurrence in the southern states. Have you attended rallies in Southern states? As to the what you call a “stupid” question the crowd clapped and yelled “let him die” when a hypothetical situation was described and Ron Paul was asked to respond to it. This was a Tea Party event and I highly doubt there were many liberals/Democrats in attendance. This incident has been on all the news stations and many talk shows have been discussing it. As a doctor, himself, I would have thought he would have at least said something to the affect that as a doctor who took an oath he would not in good conscience allow someone to just die

when that person couldn’t even make a decision because he was in a coma. Obviously it won’t matter a bit that I am giving you this information. You simply have decided that you will not believe it anyway and will make any excuse to back up your Tea Party/ Republican beliefs. You still seem to think racist behavior is justifiable. Not once have I ever said the beliefs of the Tea Party are all wrong or that all the people in the Tea Party do this. I have simply responded to inappropriate things happening at these rally’s and did make it clear that I believed that the Tea Party had been infiltrated by many hate groups who were the ones responsible for the signs. As to my going to a Tea Party event. No I haven’t. Nor do I want to. In my opinion right now there is not one Republican candidate I would even think of voting for. As to your continuing to believe what I have cited above is unrepresentative of your experiences you continue to do that. However, you can’t change the facts, erase the actual video coverage’s or say these statements weren’t made when the people who made them do apologize for their remarks. I hope this answers your questions. And I hope you finally realize I am not some “nut job” making up things and stop accusing me of doing that. There are many people who will read this letter who have seen the signs, heard the insults and more then likely feel as I do — that this is inappropriate and certainly not excusable behavior!

Let me tell you the tale of a small town and Project Moon Beam To the editor, It has been a tough summer for Small Town America. The economy is difficult in small cities and towns. The lucky ones are half way between an industrial past and a possible future as something different. Unemployment is currently hovering around 9-percent. It is not static; some months it is 11-percent and in others it is 8-percent, but things are not good. The manufacturing that was the life blood of the community has largely given up. The cost is too high. The regulatory burden is too large. The doors are closing. The mantra of creating skilled labor is turning out to be a hard slog. Those going to obtain new skills are finding that having skills is not a guarantor of getting a job. There’s the cost of borrowing for education. Then even if you

can find a job you’re probably underwater on your house so when you start figuring out that if you have to move to use the skills it is something between painful and disastrous financially. So when the governor or some political official came to town announcing that new jobs will be created assembling widgets for Project Moonbeam, a subsidiary of Really Big Company, and a largely abandoned factory rehabilitated, local press and politicians react with enthusiasm. Sound familiar? That initial warm fuzzy feeling wears off. Few of the promised jobs materialize. Nothing is rolling off the production line. According to the Project Moonbeam spokesperson, the company currently employs a few people in Small Town USA and has ditched initial hiring target. The announcesee next page

BEDBUGS from page 3 pital Center and occasionally treats patients who report bedbug problems. But the insects are a major hassle. In recent national surveys of exterminators, bedbugs were named the toughest pest to get ridcscsund of. They can hide for months, only come out at night and can be hard to spot with the human eye. They are also creepy, provoking intense fear in the minds of many people unnerved by the threat that an almost invisible insect could emerge at night to drink their blood. “Sometimes people get hysterical,” said Theresa Braine, a New York City journalist who lived with bedbugs in her apartment for a year and now writes a weekly Internet column about the pests. The CDC study was the first to look at the dangers of bedbug insecticides. Researchers reviewed reports from California, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, New York, Texas and Washington. They counted 111 cases from 2003 through 2010. Most occurred in the last few years, when bedbug reports rose across the country. More than half were in New York City. People suffered headaches, dizziness, breathing problems and nausea and vomiting. More than 80 percent of the illnesses were considered mild. The one death was a 65-year-old woman from Rocky Mount, N.C., who had a history of heart trouble and other ailments. In 2010, she and her husband used nine cans of

insecticide fogger one day, then the same amount two days later, without opening doors and windows to air out their home afterward. She also covered her body and hair with another bedbug product, and covered her hair with a plastic shower cap. Two other illnesses were carpet cleaners who had not been told the apartment had recently been treated with pesticides. Two more were emergency medical technicians who responded to a scene and were exposed to a white powder believed to be a pesticide. CDC officials said they could not be absolutely certain that the insecticides caused every problem. For example, there was no record of an autopsy on the North Carolina woman. It’s possible that some of the illnesses were coincidental to the insecticide exposure. But it’s also likely these kinds of illnesses are under-reported, Calvert said. About 90 percent of the cases were linked to pyrethroids or pyrethrins, insecticides commonly used against bedbugs. Such products are not a health risk to most people but should still be applied by a trained exterminator, said Vassallo, who is also a toxicologist and a clinical associate professor at NYU Langone Medical Center. But in some cases, an improper and more dangerous product was used. That happened in 2010 in Ohio, where an uncertified exterminator used malathion to rid an apartment of bedbugs, even though the chemical is never supposed to be used indoors. A couple and their 6-year-old child got sick.

to create a three-week course to teach the specialized techniques Project Moonbeam uses. Those techniques are so specialized the head teacher at the college, said he had never heard of them, and so difficult that only those experienced in the trade could attempt them. Between January and April, according to the tech college, just 30 people took the course; the company was looking to hire 70. It is turning out that taxes are paying for the jobs. There really is no useful output. The training is nonvalue added because the people can’t afford to move to use it. The Wimpy Plan is all about paying tax dollars today for promises of hope and change that are not coming to fruition. It turns out there is no free lunch. Similar tales are told of the experiences of other small towns. If other small cities and towns are banking on manufacturing to restore their fortunes, they have a long, slow road ahead. Say thank you to the economic planners. Say thank you to your representatives who put the incentives in the tax code for moving manufacturing offshore. Say thank you to your representatives who have installed free trade without understanding the impacts or the process. Say thank you to the your representatives who have run up the debt. Say thank you to the representatives who have abdicated their authority to regulators. Say thank you to the political operative who have becom so skillful at separating the authorization of expenditure from the responsibility for results. Remember you have voted for the representatives repeatedly. It is your vote to cast. Use it wisely. Vote early, vote often. Marc Abear Meredith

ment goes on that Project Moon Beam is expecting to reach only a third of the initial hiring target by someday. The spokesperson blames the sluggish hiring on the weak economy reminding everyone that the path to creating even one job is difficult. Small Town USA is beginning to grasp that Project Moonbeam was a Wimpy Plan. Project Moonbeam decided on building product in America in April 2010. It then started negotiations with the county Chamber of Commerce and the state Department of Resources and Economic Development. Small Town’s greatest asset in sealing the deal was the building itself. Originally used to make something else for the Very Large Company and then Someone Else Inc, the factory had been used as a Halloween house since the latter company left town in 1998. The 740,000 square-foot building has a 1,960 foot long main assembly floor, with a railway line running through the property. The two business-promotion organizations set loose all their connections. There are tax incentives of various kinds and the upshot is that Project Moonbeam will receive up to $11.1-million in subsidies from the state and local governments. The state tax credits were tied to capital investment, not to a job creation target. So those jobs might end up costing taxpayers $284,000 each. Recruitment ads appeared shortly after the deal was signed. The state employment agency, weeded out unsuitable applicants. The jobs drew thousands of hopefuls. The Employment Security Director noted that there is a big gap between flipping burgers and working at a modern manufacturer. The local branch of the tech, a community college, agreed

Shea-Porter urges Meredith Democrats to get to work By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

MEREDITH — “I love campaigning and I’m at full-time every single day,” said Carol Shea-Porter, the Rochester Democrat seeking to reclaim the First Congressional District she lost to Republican Frank Guinta of Manchester last year. “This is a joy,” she exclaimed after speaking to a crowd of about 60 at Hart’s Turkey Farm Restaurant Wednesday night. Reminding her listeners , as she often does, that she was raised in a Republican family, Shea-Porter said that many of the Republicans elected to Congress in 2010 are “not the Republicans I grew up with but an extreme element who have made things difficult.” She recalled during her two terms Democrats and Republicans agreed about the responsibilities of government and argued about how much to spend fulfilling them. Guinta and others, Shea-Porter continued want to dismantle whole departments, especially the Departments of Energy and Education and the Environmental Protection Agency. “Some Democrats and some Republicans find common ground,” she said, “but other Republicans just say no.” Pointing to the dispute over funding the Federal Emergency Management Agency, she said that “some are willing to let the government shut down. This is a sea change.” Shea-Porter conceded that both President Obama and the congressional Democrats have erred. “They are not perfect. You know that. I don’t have to stand up here and tell you that.” In particular, she said

that the third of the stimulus package represented by tax cuts should have been invested in infrastructure projects and “there’s a lot to criticize in the health care reform. I’m not blind to the errors of either party,” she continued, “but, I know one thing. Look at their platform.” “Very few people want to see government dismantled,” said Shea-Porter, who, casting back to the 2010 election declared “we are not outnumbered. We were outworked,” a line she repeated at least three times. “Be as involved as you can this year,” she urged. “This is not a spectator sport.” “I will freely admit that we are up against some pretty strong headwinds,” Shea-Porter said, then turned on Guinta. She reported that his approval rating stands in recent polls at 24-percent, asking “what’s wrong with that 24-percent?” and that a group called Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington counted him among the 14 most corrupt members of Congress, remarking “it must have been a hard choice for them.” “We will win because we are right,” Shea-Porter declared several times to a round of applause. Afterwards Shea-Porter said that she has found audiences “frustrated and concerned but optimistic. They see the hard right tilt and they don’t like it. And they are ready to work.” Shea-Porter is in a three-cornered contest for the Democratic nomination in the First Congressional District with Andrew Hosmer of Laconia and Joanne Dowdell of Portsmouth.

Lakes Region Planning Commission initiates redevelopment of three derelict properties MEREDITH — The Lakes Region Brownfields Program has begun redeveloping three blighted properties and is in the process of assessing the prospects of another half dozen, including the Colonial Theater, New England Yard and Laconia State School in Laconia. In 2009, the Lakes Region Planning Commission (LRPC), with assistance from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), began assessing the environmental condition of abandoned and vacant properties with an eye to their redevelopment. Three — the Mica Factory in Bristol, Ernie’s Garage in Tilton and the Polyclad plant in Franklin — have plans for new uses and another six are undergoing initial environmental assessments with support from the Brownfields Program. Bristol has been awarded a $200,000 grant by the EPA to demolish the Mica Factory and turn the site into a riverfront park that will feature a pedestrian crossing to the Profile Falls Trail on the far bank of the Pemigewasset River. With the garage steadily collapsing, Tilton acquired the parcel flanked by the Winnipesaukee River and Us Route 3/NH Route 11 where the Winnipesaukee River Trail Association plans to place a river crossing and trailhead. The town is preparing an application

for funds to address limited soil and groundwater contamination and plans to redevelop the site. In Franklin, the environmental assessment determined that contamination of the former tannery last occupied by Polyclad Laminates, Inc. was more manageable than first anticipated which enabled the city to purchase the property as the site of a new municipal water department. The New England Yard on Messer Street and Laconia State School on North Main Street have undergone initial environmental assessments while the Colonial Theater recently enrolled in the Brownfields Program. The feasibility of renovating and reopening the theater is being considered by the Cultural Arts Center of the Lakes Region, a non-profit corporation, which is expected to issue its report before the close of the year. Initial environmental assessments have been completed at the former Guay’s Garage in Franklin, I. W. Packard facility in Ashland and Tamworth Inn in Tamworth. The LRPC is seeking to identify other properties in the region where redevelopment may be hampered by real or perceived environmental issues. For more information about the Brownfields Program, contact Eric Senecal, LRPC Regional Planner at 279-8171.

CLIMBER from page one two dozen crags strewn across the south face of Rattlesnake Mountain. The New Hampshire Medical Examiner is investigating the cause of death. Deemed a strong, experienced climber familiar with the terrain, Perkins, 25, apparently drove to the spot on Monday afternoon. The next day, after he failed to return home as expected, his family contacted authorities, who mounted a search. Perkins’s car was found in the parking lot off Buffalo Road where he was last seen. Search teams scoured the area until dark on Tuesday and again on Wednesday. In a formal statement, Sergeant Brian Suttmeier

of the Fish and Game Department, said that searchers were challenged by the steep, broken, wooded and rocky ground. Conservation officers,, state police troopers, Rumney police officers together with personnel and volunteers from the White Mountain National Forest, Upper Valley Search and Rescue and New England K-9 Search and Rescue and local rock climbers took part in the search, with the support of a K-9 unit and helicopter of the New Hampshire State Police. The Darmouth Outing Club describes Rumney Rocks as “a sport-climber paradise” that “ has “arrived” as one of the top climbing destinations in America.”

NEUTRINO from page  2 It is “a revolutionary discovery if confirmed,” said Indiana University theoretical physicist Alan Kostelecky, who has worked on this concept for a quarter of a century. Stephen Parke, who is head theoretician at the Fermilab near Chicago and was not part of the research, said: “It’s a shock. It’s going to cause us problems, no doubt about that — if it’s true.” Even if these results are confirmed, they won’t change at all the way we live or the way the world works. After all, these particles have presumably

been speed demons for billions of years. But the finding will fundamentally alter our understanding of how the universe operates, physicists said. Einstein’s special relativity theory, which says that energy equals mass times the speed of light squared, underlies “pretty much everything in modern physics,” said John Ellis, a theoretical physicist at CERN who was not involved in the experiment. “It has worked perfectly up until now.” France’s National Institute for Nuclear and Particle Physics Research collaborated with Italy’s Gran Sasso National Laboratory on the experiment at CERN.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, September 23, 2011 — Page 13

WEIRS from page one Thurston said the Weirs Beach business community is responsible for about 26-percent of all the tax revenue generated by the city and yet the city’s unwillingness to spend money to tear down an eyesore that “is the first and last thing” visitors see when they come to the Weirs is shortsighted at best. “Look at that thousands of dollars we spent on the (Weirs) sign and now it’s part of the National Historic Register,” he continued. Thurston said the city should do what’s right and, in his mind, what’s right is to petition the court to tear down the saloon. “We’re right where we were a year ago, only worse,” he said. Ward 1 Councilor Ava Doyle, a business owner in the Weirs herself, declined to comment officially, saying she hasn’t spoken to Myers about the Wide Open Saloon recently and that it would be inappropriate for her to say anything because there is still some unresolved legal action between Baldi and the city. From a personal standpoint, Doyle said something needs to be done with the building. “I don’t know the Baldi’s but I’m sure they would like to see something happen as well,” she said. In late May, N.H. 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division Judge James Carroll ordered Baldi to tear down the charred remains of the former restaurant/hotel, upholding the city’s argument that it posed an imminent danger of collapse. Baldi appealed Carroll’s order to Belknap County Superior Court saying that because no code inspector

had ever been inside, there was no way for the city to make the determination that it was in danger of collapse. A structuring conference (a court determined timeline for when motions and arguments must be filed) is scheduled for the first week in October. Myers has said that in order to have the city tear it down, it must first apply for a warrant to get inside and evaluate what remains, pay for a hazard mitigation evaluation and then remove the structure. The property is the subject of four individual legal actions — the one with the city of Laconia that’s in Belknap County Superior Court; one where Baldi has sued her fire insurer, Lloyds of London, for not paying her claim; one against the N.H. State Fire Marshal who is refusing to release information regarding the fire; and one where she is the respondent for the alarm and sprinkler company that claims it was never paid. Ideally, Myers said he would like to see Baldi’s insurance claim resolved which would allow her to demolish and rebuild something in the same spot. Doyle said it is such a key piece of Weir Beach real estate — especially because of the traditional Weirs Beach sign lighting ceremony that was forgone this spring — she said she would love to see the building at the foot of Lakeside Ave. put back into use. For Thurston, even it it can’t be restored as a hotel or restaurant, a vacant lot is better that what sits there now. “Heck, the city’s always talking about green space. They can make it a park. anything is better than what’s there now,” he said.

from preceding page CERN reported that a neutrino beam fired from a particle accelerator near Geneva to a lab 454 miles (730 kilometers) away in Italy traveled 60 nanoseconds faster than the speed of light.Scientists calculated the margin of error at just 10 nanoseconds.(A nanosecond is one-billionth of a second.) Given the enormous implications of the find, the researchers spent months checking and rechecking their results to make sure there were no flaws in the experiment. A team at Fermilab had similar faster-than-light results in 2007, but a large margin of error undercut its

scientific significance. If anything is going to throw a cosmic twist into Einstein’s theories, it’s not surprising that it’s the strange particles known as neutrinos. These are odd slivers of an atom that have confounded physicists for about 80 years. The neutrino has almost no mass, comes in three different “flavors,” may have its own antiparticle and has been seen shifting from one flavor to another while shooting out from our sun, said physicist Phillip Schewe, communications director at the Joint Quantum Institute in Maryland.

SMOKERS from page one the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Even at these locations, though, the rule makers are questioning whether their clubs would be better off if smokers were relegated to the patio. The American Legion Post in Meredith, number 33 in New Hampshire, held a vote earlier this month as to whether or not members and guests would be permitted to smoke. The proposed ban failed, with seven members voting for it and 13 voting against. Unaffected by the recent vote, the Meredith Post continues to maintain a policy that forbids smoking in its hall and canteen during events that welcome the public, such as luncheons following memorial ceremonies or during its meat bingo fund raising events. Bob Kennelly, commander for the post, said the idea for a general smoking ban was brought up at a meeting in June. He sent out a letter to all 180 members of the post, informing them of a vote on the matter during the September meeting. 40 people showed up, including some non-members. According to Tom Weeks, sergeant-at-arms for the Legion, only about a third of the 20 voters were smokers. Their cause was taken up by another third of sympathetic non-smokers. “They didn’t feel that it was their right to take away rights of the other member veterans,” he said. Weeks voted against the ban. He smokes, but said, “Even if I didn’t, I would still not vote to say, ‘I don’t like it, so you can’t smoke’...You’re still taking a right away from someone.” Kennelly, as commander, only votes to break a tie. Had he the opportunity, he said he would have voted to ban smoking at the post. “We at the American Legion have tried every filter, everything in the world,” to remove smoke from the air in the post, he said. Despite their efforts, the smokey conditions continue to be irritating to some non-smoking members. Kennelly doesn’t smoke and he noted that many members won’t be seen in the canteen. “They can’t come in here because of the smoke, you’re driving people away.” “But, I’m commander of all the people, not just myself. When they speak, and they did, I have to listen,” Kennelly added. Weeks took a different view from Kennelly. “If all the people who smoke, left, I don’t think the club would survive very long.” The post canteen gains revenue through sales of drinks and instant-win gambling tickets. Many of the club’s present members served during a period when their “K-rations,” distributed to troops in a combat situation, included a pack of cigarettes. The Meredith Post, like many other veterans organizations, is hoping to attract the active membership of

the veterans currently serving their country. Voting on a ban now, Weeks noted, would enact a rule affecting future post members both current and future. “It’s not that we mind or don’t mind smoking, it’s another right that’s being imposed upon,” he said. “Don’t I have rights?” Kennelly countered, “You’re taking away might right to come into a smoke-free environment.” The American Legion Post in Meredith isn’t the only one wrestling with the question. According to Kennelly, about 60-percent of legion posts around the country have banned smoking.

The post in Alton is among them. Ed Russell, the bar manager and a member of the Alton Post, said smoking has been against the rules there since spring of this year. Because the summer is typically the post’s slowest time, he said it’s too early to tell whether the rule will result in more traffic in the bar. Anecdotally, he said some regular visitors have taken their cigarette packs to the post in Rochester, where no such ban exists. He suspects those members will return when they tire of the drive. “We’re getting new faces coming in here and we’ve seen some people leave, but they’re slowly coming back.”

MUFFINS from page 2 10 Justice Department conferences was one of those news stories that make the public sit up and take notice. Once again, the profligate government was overspending. But it wasn’t billions. Or even millions. It was muffins at $16 apiece, according to the IG’s office. The report referenced the $16 muffins half a dozen

times and it said their cost was one of many food items that “appeared extravagant and potentially wasteful.” Not so, Hilton Worldwide said in a statement Thursday. “In Washington, the contracted breakfast included fresh fruit, coffee, juice, muffins, tax and gratuity, for see next page

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, September 23, 2011— Page 15

Despite dreadful September, Red Sox still have upper hand in wild card race BOSTON (AP) — The pitching is in shambles. The hitting is spotty. And the defense? The Boston Red Sox are dropping the ball there, too. In less than three weeks, they’ve blundered their way from a smooth ride to the playoffs to a bumpy trip toward a spot on the list of historic collapses. And, somehow during their wacky September, they still have the inside track on a postseason berth. But, boy, what a way to go. “I’ve been here, what, nine years? We’ve never collapsed that bad,” said David Ortiz, his room-brightening smile replaced by a blank stare. “We’ve been through some tough times, (but) it’s bad. No matter what we do, things are going to be bad.” The freefall began on Sept. 4 when the Red Sox began play with a nine-game lead over Tampa Bay in the AL wild-card race — more like a runaway at the time — and just a half-game deficit in the AL East standings behind the New York Yankees. STOCKS from page 2 Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis started keeping daily records half a century ago. It was 3.66 percent as recently as February, when the economic forecast was brighter. Yields fall as investors buy bonds and send their prices higher. Small yields are a sign that investors are just looking for a safe place to park their cash. “They want to get their money back,” said Guy LeBas, chief fixed income strategist at Janney Capital Markets. “How much they earn is secondary.” Besides U.S. bonds, investors bought American dollars. The dollar rose to an eight-month high against the euro because of fears that Europe, staggered by debt, will bear the worst of a global downturn. The Dow almost matched its lowest close of the year, 10,719 on Aug. 10. The stock market was seized by volatility last month, and at one point the Dow strung together four consecutive days of 400-point moves up or down. In a sign of what a rocky year it has been for the stock market, Thursday’s decline isn’t even close to the biggest in 2011. The Dow fell 634 points on Aug. 8, 519 points on Aug. 10 and 512 points on Aug. 4. It would have to fall 485 more points to reach the traditional definition of a bear market — a 20 percent decline. The Dow was at 12,810 on April 29. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index, a broader measure of the stock market, and the Nasdaq composite, which is more heavily weighted with technology stocks, both fell more than 3 percent for the day.

Since then, they are 4-14. Going into Thursday’s games, they led the Rays and Los Angeles Angels by just 2½ games for the wild-card spot and were 7½ games behind the Yankees, who clinched the division title on Wednesday night. It would have been worse if the Rays hadn’t lost a doubleheader to the Yankees while the Red Sox were falling to Baltimore 6-4. They got a break from the misery on a Thursday with a day off while the Rays and Angels played. That will leave each of the contenders with six games remaining. But the Red Sox must go into Yankee Stadium for the start of a three-game series on Friday night before finishing with three in Baltimore. “Nobody’s going to lay down for us. Nobody’s going to hand us any wins,” captain and catcher Jason Varitek said. “We’ve got to go out there and get it on our own.” A few wins over the Yankees should quiet comparisons to the New York Mets’ collapse of 2007 when they missed the playoffs, squandering a seven-game lead by going 5-12 in their last 17 games. “Anything left that we can try,” second baseman Dustin Pedroia asked. “We can play better. That’s basically it.” Before the latest loss, pitcher Tim Wakefield snuck a peak over his shoulder at the clubhouse television as he walked toward the field, glove in hand. It was the ninth inning of the Yankees’ 4-2 win over the Rays in the opener of the doubleheader. The TV was off after Boston coughed up a late lead for the second straight day, walking back to the clubhouse to loud boos from home fans one day after the team passed the 3 million mark in attendance. At the time, the Yankees were minutes away from another 4-2 win. “We have to take care of ourselves and then from from preceding page an inclusive price of $16 per person,” Hilton Worldwide said in a statement. “Dining receipts are often abbreviated and do not reflect the full pre-contracted menu and service provided, as is the case with recent media reports of breakfast items approved for some government meetings,” Hilton Worldwide’s statement added. On Thursday night, IG spokesman Jay Lerner said that “we stand by our report.” The IG’s report allocates $4,200 for the muffins but also noted 15 gallons of complimentary coffee, 30 gallons of complimentary ice tea and 200 pieces of free fruit included in the overall price of $39,360. The IG says that the total cost per person at the reception was $14.74 — 2 cents over the allowable

there we’ll worry about what happens,” Varitek said, “but we control what we do by playing good baseball.” The Red Sox reject observations that they lack an inner fire. “Completely asinine,” closer Jonathan Papelbon said. But they went meekly in Wednesday night’s loss. In fact, they failed to get a runner — grounding out harmlessly on their last five at bats — in the last two innings after falling behind 6-4. They say they’re not pressing. “I don’t see it,” Ortiz said. It’s indisputable, though, that the Red Sox are playing bad baseball. “You have a day off to regroup,” manager Terry Francona said. “We certainly haven’t made it very easy for ourselves. That doesn’t mean we can’t get where we want to go. “But, we have our work cut out for us.” During the current 4-14 slide, they’ve scored just 54 runs in the losses, the same number they’ve put up in the wins. The pitchers have an ERA of 5.81, starters have gone more than five innings in only six of the 18 games, and fielders have made 22 errors to just 10 for their opponents. One of the costliest flubs came in Tuesday night’s 7-5 loss to the Orioles, a game the Red Sox led 5-4 before Papelbon, who entered with 22 straight scoreless innings, gave up a three-run double to Robert Andino in the eighth. The error came in the third when right fielder Josh Reddick took a step in on Vladimir Guerrero’s liner then couldn’t get back in time to make the catch, which would have ended the inning with just one run. The ball ticked off Reddick’s glove and the Orioles scored four. Justice Department limit. Totaling up the items in the IG’s report, the 534 attendees over five days were given 1,150 pastries and 1,350 pieces of candy and fruit. In its report, the IG’s office said the cost of the muffins was one of many food items that “appeared extravagant and potentially wasteful.” “Many individual food and beverage items listed on conference invoices and paid by the” Executive Office for Immigration Review for a legal training conference “were very costly,” said the IG report. “The EOIR spent $4,200 on 250 muffins and $2,880 on 300 cookies and brownies. By itemizing these costs, we determined that, with service and gratuity, muffins cost over $16 each and cookies and brownies cost almost $10 each.”

Mostly, you will dwell on the lovely thoughts you prefer, and the shift happens quite naturally. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll create an emotional climate around you. It will be as though you have your own personal weather system following you around wherever you go. It’s quite sunny and fair where you are. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The chatter in your head is as distracting as a television blaring when you’re trying to read or converse. You can quiet the mental noise by telling someone trustworthy what’s on your mind, or by writing in a diary. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Meetings are often unnecessary, and today is no exception. However, unnecessary things can still be quite helpful. And today it will benefit everyone to get together and make sure you’re all on the same page. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 23). You approach many areas of your life with a strong sense of professionalism. Because you accept the trials and hard work, you will also accept the rewards. In October, you’ll connect with someone in a fleeting moment and turn this connection into a bond that lasts years. There’s a move in March. You’ll learn a new skill. Leo and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 13, 6, 4, 2 and 19.

TUNDRA

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll apply yourself in all sorts of unusual ways to please the powers that be. It works especially well when the one who happens to be in power is you. And you are certainly worthy of a pleasing effort. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will see a relationship from the other person’s point of view, which makes you a kind of emotional genius. The ability to leave yourself and see things as another person might is a rare gift. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You probably won’t feel like taking a direct route. Wandering around requires a great deal of time, but it’s worthwhile. You’ll have different thoughts along this meandering path. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Cupid’s arrow hits. You’re likely to fall in love and stay in love. You may not be falling for another person, though -- it will probably be a project or an area of interest that captures your heart. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll enjoy a day of clear-headedness and ordered thinking. You will be decisive, partly because you feel there’s no time to waste and partly because the right answers seem so obvious to you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). When you’re not sure what to do, you will make the effort to appear knowledgeable. You will be convincing in this endeavor, making others feel at ease. People will believe what you say. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll feel empowered to take on the world, and yet you’ll wisely realize the world doesn’t always need to be “taken on.” Things are already leaning in your direction, so all you have to do is go with the flow. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You always try to leave things better than

Page 22 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, September 23, 2011

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, Sept. 23, the 266th day of 2011. There are 99 days left in the year. Autumn arrives at 5:04 a.m. Eastern time. Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 23, 1952, Sen. Richard M. Nixon, R-Calif., salvaged his vice-presidential nomination by delivering the “Checkers” speech, in which he defended himself against allegations of improper campaign fundraising. On this date: In 1779, during the Revolutionary War, the American warship Bon Homme Richard, commanded by John Paul Jones, defeated the HMS Serapis in battle. In 1780, British spy John Andre was captured along with papers revealing Benedict Arnold’s plot to surrender West Point to the British. In 1806, the Lewis and Clark expedition returned to St. Louis more than two years after setting out for the Pacific Northwest. In 1846, Neptune was identified as a planet by German astronomer Johann Gottfried Galle (GAH’-luh). In 1908, an apparent baserunning error by Fred Merkle of the New York Giants cost his team a victory against the Chicago Cubs and left the game tied 1-1. In 1957, nine black students who’d entered Little Rock Central High School in Arkansas were forced to withdraw because of a white mob outside. In 1962, New York’s Philharmonic Hall (later renamed Avery Fisher Hall) formally opened as the first unit of the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. In 1973, former Argentine president Juan Peron won a landslide election victory that returned him to power; his wife, Isabel, was elected vice president. In 1981, the Reagan administration announced plans for what became known as “Radio Marti.” One year ago: The U.S. delegation walked out of a U.N. speech by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad after he said some in the world had speculated that the U.S. staged the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks in an attempt to assure Israel’s survival. Today’s Birthdays: Actor Mickey Rooney is 91. Actress Margaret Pellegrini (“The Wizard of Oz”) is 88. Singer Julio Iglesias is 68. Actor Paul Petersen is 66. Actress-singer Mary Kay Place is 64. Rock star Bruce Springsteen is 62. Rock musician Leon Taylor is 56. Actress Rosalind Chao is 54. Golfer Larry Mize is 53. Actor Jason Alexander is 52. Actress Elizabeth Pena is 52. Actor Chi McBride is 50. Country musician Don Herron is 49. Actor Erik Todd Dellums is 47. Actress LisaRaye is 45. Singer Ani (AH’-nee) DiFranco is 41. Rock singer Sarah Bettens is 39. Recording executive Jermaine Dupri is 39. Actor Kip Pardue is 35. Pop singer Erik-Michael Estrada is 32. Actress Aubrey Dollar is 31. Tennis player Melanie Oudin (oo-DAN’) is 20.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, September 23, 2011— Page 23

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Dear Annie: I think my brother-in-law’s wife is attracted to my husband, “James.” James believes this to be true, as well, but he rather enjoys the attention. Whenever we are at his brother’s house, the wife is always flirting with James, touching him and finding reasons to be near him. When it’s time for us to go, she practically begs him to stay. She also often makes subtle suggestive comments, and this really gets on my nerves. As an added twist, my husband and I are not sexually active. We’ve not been intimate in nearly two years. This was a mutual decision. James is always tired when he gets home from long-distance driving. I’m on two separate antidepressants that just about kill off any shred of sexual interest. A few times, I’ve told James that if he is interested in sex, I’d be quite amenable, but he repeatedly tells me he’s too tired. I asked him why he lets her flirt with him, and he says it’s fun, but insists he’s not interested in having an affair with her or anyone else. We have been married for 12 years and have no children, so he has all of my attention and plenty of affection. This flirtation was going on even before she married into the family. I had hoped that after five years and two kids it would end, but it hasn’t subsided in the least. I admit I am slightly jealous, but am I completely off base thinking there is something wrong with this? -- Green-Eyed Dear Green-Eyed: There are a lot of things wrong with this. We don’t care how tired your husband is, surely he could work up some interest in sex in two years. The fact that he hasn’t is worrisome and, combined with the attention he receives from another woman, puts your relationship at risk. We don’t know why James’ brother turns a blind eye to his wife’s flirtations, but that is his problem. Yours is to find a way to reconnect intimately with your husband. Talk to a

counselor, get some books from the library, watch some videos or take a long vacation, but please do something before it’s too late. Dear Annie: Our grandchild is 4 years old. He pushes and slaps his father while laughing and yelling. His dad retaliates, often rolling on the floor with him, all in fun. This “fun” is getting more violent, and we worry that the child will grow up shoving and hitting and having a problematic life. His father laughs at our concerns. What do you think? -- Worried in West Hills Dear Worried: A certain amount of roughhousing is OK if neither the child nor the parent is getting hurt, feels anxious or becomes over-stimulated. The father should be aware, however, that the boy is not capable of controlling his enthusiasm and things can get out of hand. We recommend that Mom discuss it with her pediatrician. Dear Annie: “Happy Senior” said she avoids the person who is “so hard of hearing that conversation is tiresome.” My mother was socially active and popular in her small circle. She joined the Scrabble club and started tap dancing classes, pursuits that she had enjoyed in the past. But before new friendships could take root, she began to experience hearing problems that became so severe that she was unable to readily interact with people in group situations and withdrew from her outside activities. Despite the latest hearing aid technology, she is still functionally hard of hearing. Certain considerations can lead to less tiresome encounters: Face the person squarely and engage in one-on-one conversation. A quiet place is likely to be more conducive to conversation. Anyone making the effort to engage my mother in such conversation will find an intelligent, caring and funloving human being. -- C.

LACONIA — Fall has arrived and with the colder weather each year comes flu season. “The flu vaccine is one of the best ways we can protect ourselves and our families from the flu,” says LRGHealthcare Medical Director of Infection Control Dr. Abigail Dacuycuy. The CDC recommends that everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine. “We support this recommendation,” says Dr. Dacuycuy. “For some people, the flu is truly a health risk; for others, it is just an inconvenience, but everyone benefits from limiting its spread in our community. Widespread vaccination, including vaccination of children, is the best way to protect everyone in our community.” Beginning Monday, October 3, flu shots will be offered at the following locations: • Laconia Clinic. For Laconia Clinic patients,

walk-in clinic dates have been scheduled in the month of October. Call the Laconia Clinic Flu Hotline 527-2752 for dates and times. • Lakes Region General Hospital Emergency Department—Fast Track (EFT). Flu vaccines are available on a walk-in basis, seven days a week from 9 a.m.–noon; and 4-7 p.m. The flu vaccines are available in the EFT and FIT for anyone three years and older. • Franklin Regional Hospital’s Infusion Transfusion Department (FIT), by appointment only, call 934-2060 ext 8850. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday between 8a.m. – 6 p.m. The flu vaccines are available in the EFT and FIT for anyone three years and older. For children under the age of three, call your child’s pediatrician to schedule a time for a pediatric flu vaccination.

You’ll find the social atmosphere here is just as rewarding as the musical one.’’ She says auditions are not needed and encourages singers to show up at the next rehearsal on Tuesday.
