LACONIA — The house at 33 Harvard Street was built in the late 19th Century to be the stately home of Albert G. Folsom, a pillar of commerce and civic duty in the city. By 1930, though, the property would be lost to foreclosure, spending much of the 20th Century in the less-than-glamorous role of apartment building, falling deeper into a state of disrepair. Earlier this year, though,

the building received a new life when purchased by local rental property owner and developer James Belcher. When Belcher took ownership of the large, two-story home, he said, “It was in appalling condition.” The roof was leaking in several places, and many components “turned to dust” with minimal agitation. If not for immediate attention, the structure was in danger of falling beyond repair. “The place was totally neglected
since the Great Depression,” Belcher said. Belcher knows something about second chances. A Quincy, Massachusetts native, he earned a Master’s in education from Harvard University and then got a job with Hewlett-Packard, leading training programs for employees. The career paid enough that his wife Linda could stay home to raise their three children. But, in 1995, at the age of 45, Belcher suffered a see HOUSE page 8

Chief quits, leaving dog only member of small town New Mexico police force
VAUGHN, N.M. (AP) — The police chief of the small eastern New Mexico town of Vaughn resigned Wednesday, leaving the town with just one certified member on its police force — a drug-sniffing dog named Nikka. Dave Romero, attorney for the town, said Wednesday that police Chief Ernest “Chris” Armijo decided to step down after news stories reported that he wasn’t allowed to carry a gun because of his criminal background. “He decided the attention was distracting,” Romero said. State officials said Armijo couldn’t carry a gun since acknowledging that he owed tens of thousands of dollars in delinquent child support payments in Texas. Armijo also faces new felony charges after being accused of selling a town-owned rifle and pocketing the cash. Romero said Armijo is working to clear up the latest case. He said Armijo has not ruled out seeking the police see DOG page 9

Egypt’s Morsi assumes major role in shaping Mideast UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Egypt’s new President Mohammed Morsi assigned himself the heavyweight’s role in the Middle East on Wednesday, declaring in his first speech to the United Nations that the civil war raging in Syria is the “tragedy of the age” and must be brought to an end. In a wide-ranging address that touched on all major issues confronting the region, Morsi also decried Israeli settlementbuilding on territory Palestinians claim for a future state and condemned a film produced in the United States that deni-
grates Islam’s Prophet Muhammad. He urged all U.N. member nations to join in an effort to end what he called “the catastrophe in Syria” that pits the regime of Bashar Assad against opposition forces trying to end 40 years of dictatorship. More than 30,000 people have been killed in the 18-month conflict. Morsi has called for Assad to step down and said Wednesday that “the bloodshed in Syria and the humanitarian crisis that has unfolded must be stopped.” Morsi, an Islamist and key member of
the once-banned Muslim Brotherhood, opened his remarks to the U.N. General Assembly by celebrating himself as Egypt’s first democratically elected leader who was swept into office after what he called a “great, peaceful revolution” that overthrew Hosni Mubarak. He then quickly inserted himself into the thorniest issues in the Middle East, demanding that the United Nations grant membership to the Palestinians, with or without a peace agreement with Israel. see EGYPT page 11
BOSTON (AP) — The chemist at the center of a Massachusetts drug lab scandal admitted she faked test results for two to three years, forged signatures and skipped proper procedures, according to a state police report The Associated Press obtained Wednesday. It shows Annie Dookhan told police several times that she knew she had done wrong. “I screwed up big time,” she said while
becoming teary-eyed, according to the report by investigators for Attorney General Martha Coakley’s office. “I messed up bad, it’s my fault. I don’t want the lab to get in trouble.” Dookhan’s alleged mishandling of drug samples at the now-closed state lab in Boston has thrown thousands of criminal cases into question. A handful of defendants are already free or have had their
criminal sentences suspended. Authorities haven’t filed charges against Dookhan or commented on her possible motives as their probe continues. The chemist hasn’t responded to repeated requests for comment. In the Aug. 28 interview with two investigators at her dining room table, Dookhan first denied doing anything wrong when see CHEMIST page 13

Our press has succumbed to ‘quote approval’ Let us now access the state of the free press in this land of ... well, of press freedom. The assessment? Pathetic. Not because of any government clampdown, but because of increasing press pusillanimity. In recent years, newspaper reporting had already been severely weakened by drastic cutbacks in newsrooms (including the near-abandonment of hard-nosed investigative reporting by conglomerate CEOs and bean-counters more interested in upping the corporate stock price than in providing journalistic exposes). But the latest decline comes from newsroom managers and staff who’ve chosen to compromise on a core aspect of good reporting: conducting untainted, straightforward interviews. Those in charge of running major newspapers and blogs these days have gone all wonky on their basic job of getting public and corporate figures to provide honest, informative answers to important who-what-when-where-and-why questions that inform the citizenry. The compromise they’ve made is a pernicious practice called “quote approval.” This began with PR flacks for public officials and political candidates demanding that reporters agree — as a price of being granted an interview — to submit any quotes they intend to use from the interview to the interviewee’s staff for approval. Thus, when Mr. Big blurts out something shocking, stupid or actually newsworthy, Mr. Big’s staff of bowdlerizers can tidy it up or just erase it. The comment might’ve been news, but — zzzzzzztt — it’s gone, as though it were never uttered. It’s not surprising that today’s media-sensitive political figures (including Barack Obama and Mitt Romney) would demand this extraordinary right to censor what they themselves said, but it’s utterly despicable that media bosses and reporters have so gutlessly caved in to the demand. It reduces reporters from hard-nosed diggers to brownnosed beggars, and it makes a mockery of our democracy’s need for a free press. Yet many of America’s major publications — from Bloomberg News to The New York Times — have meekly surrendered to this restraint. And now, corporate executives have realized that, hey, we can emasculate the press, too! Thus, Wall Street barons, Silicon Valley hotshots and even the bosses of media conglomerates are demanding (and getting) quote approval for
stories about their operations. David Carr, the media columnist for The New York Times, admits that he’s also succumbed to these demands: “Most of the time,” he wrote in a Sept. 17 column about the insidious giveaway of journalistic control, “I push back, but if it’s (a quote) I feel I absolutely need, I start negotiating.” Of course, it’s his independence and journalistic integrity that he’s bargaining away — a troubling fact that Carr acknowledged at the end of his column: “Inch by inch, story by story, deal by deal, we are giving away our right to ask a simple question and expect a simple answer, one that can’t be taken back.” As an exasperated Casey Stengel asked about the bumbling 1962 New York Mets baseball team he was managing, “Can’t anybody here play this game?” Yes. Young journalists can — and they are. Editors of student papers are beginning to reassert reportorial ethics by rebelling against the absurdity of quote approval. The editors of the Harvard Crimson student newspaper, for example, declared in “A Letter to Our Readers” on Sept. 4 that they will no longer submit quotations by Harvard honchos back to them for cleansing. Calling the shift a matter of trust with readers, the editors rightly noted that quote approval defeats the ability of their reporters “to capture and channel the forthright, honest words of Harvard’s decisionmakers to all those who might be affected. It’s time for these constrained interviews to come to an end.” Likewise, the editor of Princeton University’s student paper has halted the use of e-mail interviews favored by chary school officials who seek to barricade themselves from rigorous reporting. The prevalence of e-mail-only responses, he wrote, produces “stilted, manicured quotes that often hide any real meaning.” Bingo! Now, if only some of this youthful integrity and journalistic gutsiness would rub off on the poltroonery of America’s press elders.

LETTERS Temp government spending is only way out of a deep recession To the editor, Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney says his economic plan includes reducing the debt, maintaining President Bush’s tax breaks for the wealthy and cutting government jobs and programs. Unfortunately, his plan has already been enacted and is having a sizable effect on our present economy. How do you like the plan so far? Actually, Romney’s ideas have been enacted by the Republicans who took over the House of Representatives in 2011. Thanks to the Tea Party holding hostage the debt ceiling, both parties had to sign on to the biggest debt reduction since World War II. Everyone is holding their collective breath as spending cuts (including drastic defense reductions) threaten to lead to a major economic slowdown and even higher unemployment. President Bush’s tax beaks for the wealthy are still with us and have had no positive effect. They have only added to the giant deficit. And thanks to the end of the President Obama’s stimulus grants to the states, government jobs (teachers, firemen, and policeman) have fallen by 571,000. These undisputable facts lead me to the question: Do you think these ideas of Mr. Romney have been helping or hurting our economy? If you think they are helping, then you should vote for
Romney. I believe that as more people ask themselves this question, you will see more votes going to the president. Do you remember the American Jobs Act? A year ago the president proposed boosting the economy with combination tax cuts and spending increases, aimed in particular at infrastructure construction and sustaining state and local government employment. The consulting firm, Macroeconomic Advisers estimates that the act would add 1.3-million jobs almost immediately. Most economists believe that when an economy suffers from lack of demand, “temporary” government spending should be used to raise employment in a depressed economy. This is the only way a capitalist country can get out of a major recession or depression. Unfortunately, our “patriotic” Tea Partiers are so hateful towards President Obama they want him to fail and millions of Americans to suffer even more. Through obstruction, they have exploited the economy for the political gain of defeating President Obama. Fortunately, despite the obstructionism, private sector jobs have increased for 40 straight months and people are now turning to President Obama. Nicholas Vazzana Sandwich
Instead of writing, Mr. Dawson should spent time fact checking To the editor, Every time I read the letters in The Laconia Daily Sun, I get to read Mr. Dawson’s regurgitation of the Democratic Party line. Yes President Obama outlined his goals for the next four years (pretty much the same goals as 2008 ) but he gave little or no hint as to how he planned to achieve them — probably the same way he didn’t achieve them his first four years. As to Mr. Romney, who other than the Democrats have said that Romney would raise taxes on the middle class and small businesses to support further tax cuts for the rich? As to Mr. Romney rewarding companies that send jobs overseas? Isn’t it Pres. Obama who appointed a job czar (CEO of GE ) whose first act was to ship GE jobs overseas? What about
in China? As to the safety net for the sick and elderly, maybe Mr. Dawson should check into the benefits that have been cut back in Medicare under the guise of cutting out waste — paying for your own transport from the hospital to rehab, shortened stays in rehab, less visits allowed by visiting nurses for the elderly etc.. Mr. Dawson apparently has time on his hands to write letters to the editor but not enough time to do some fact checking. I think he must have missed the interview where Pres. Obama — with a smile — admitted that some of his ads were untrue . As Pres. Lincoln said, “you can fool all of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time, but you can’t fool all the people all of the time.” Gail Pocsik

LETTERS Senators Ayotte & McCain couldn’t step up & support veterans To the editor, Appears the tag team of Ayotte and McCain, ‘The Veteran For-Sure Team’, took a walk when it came time for doing something other than “talk” . The Veterans Job Corps Bill was up for a vote. These two Republican Senators, along with the likes of the ranking Republican Senator on Veteran Affairs, Senator Richard Burr, a non-veteran from North Carolina, found reason NOT to support the troops who return from WAR. What a surprise to all of us who see and hear OUR senator and representatives TALK of how they support the troops and families and VETERANS because maybe they are one, or know one, or maybe a family member IS one, or has been one? Now I’ am pretty sure I’ll take a hit for pointing out this dirt on these two Great Republican VETERAN supporters — Ayotte and McCain! Senator John McCain has NEVER let down the veteran or family community in the past. I’m pretty sure we can and will be able to find a veteran or two who will stand beside these two senators or any Democratic senator — NOT actually, because they support the veteran cause but because of party — the game goes on and the veteran continues to play. Point is, veterans have the opportunity to stand TOGETHER. Refuse to take second or third place at any time. If we can stand in support of sending troops off to war, we can stand in support of troops when we bring them home and do everything we can to assist in their care and needs. Veterans have a responsibility. Never again can one generation of veterans forget another generation of veterans.
Veterans in this state support VETERANS at every step of the way. Not just today but tomorrow. When there is a veterans’ related bill — state or federal — we expect the support of our representatives. We don’t care about your party affiliation. We care about trust and action — we’re getting there! Yes, remember the rallies sending our sons and daughters off to WAR? Now let’s play politics and nickel and dime their care? In 1970s, 77-percent of Congress were veterans. Today, 22-percent are veterans. Of course they care, just ask Ayotte and McCain! This is the perfect opportunity for me to THANK Senator Jeanie Forrester, Representative Bob Greemore and Representative Collette Worsman for their effort of behalf of the Northeast POW/MIA Network and all those who have been involved in the on going POW/MIA Awareness effort here in the Lakes Region and N.H. We have been fortunate to have had the support of our past senators, Deb Reynolds and our friend and brother veteran, Senator Carl Johnson. Former representative Kate Miller has always supported the efforts of these who stand the vigil and continue to work on Veteran related issues. Meredith is the Home of the “State’s Original POW/MIA Memorial”; it is known as the Hub for POW/MIA Awareness and factual information, the POW/ MIA Vigil-Freedom Ride Bridge’, a place where Veterans stand TOGETHER and Veterans issues. Never come in second to any other issue! Bob Jones Meredith
Please keep an eye out for a very special bright yellow bird To the editor, I am a children’s author and my bird, who is featured in one of my books, escaped to the outdoors on Saturday afternoon. He was living with a friend on Durrett Mountain Road in Belmont, keeping her old bird company since last year. She is moving, the old bird is dying, and I was taking my bird back. In the process of packing him up, he escaped. He is a gorgeous yellow Indian Ringneck, made quite famous through my book, who often visited schools with me and delighted many children with his adorable antics. He is a super speaker, says things like “How ya
doin? Wanna cookie? Oh, I LOVE you! Wanna kiss?” And he throws kisses. He is just adorable. He has been up in the trees in Pop’s Woods conservation land, calling to my friend when she calls to him, but we have not seen nor heard him since Monday morning. However there isn’t anyone home all day and I live intwo hours away. The book he is in is called a “Mabel Takes a Paddle”/ I am amazed at all the kind people who are helping look for him, expressing their concerns, making suggestions. I have a Facebppl page for him, called Missing Bert. Emily Chetkowski New Ipswich

No! We don’t want Legislature to have control over our courts To the editor, Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice David Souter, in a talk in Concord on September 14th, said,” ... two-thirds of the people of the United States don’t know we have three separate branches of government.” On November 6th voters will be asked to approve an amendment to the State Constitution, CACR 26, that violates this fundamental of principle of constitutional democracy. This amendment would give the State Legislature control over the operations of the state courts. In opposition to CACR 26, Representative Lucy M. Weber
pointed out, “This CACR disrupts the balance of power between the legislature and judicial branches which is an essential part of our system of checks and balances.” Stephen Merrill, former N.H. governor, together with former N.H. Supreme Court justice Joseph Nadeau in a September 13th opinion editorial, urged voters to vote ‘NO’ on CACR 26. I urge my fellow NH citizens to join me in following Governor Merrill’s advice and vote ‘NO’ on CACR to keep the judiciary independent. Margaret Merritt Center Sandwich

To the editor, In a chance meeting with an active member of the Republican Party a week ago, I was informed that some folks were upset with me after the primary results were in for State Senate District 7. Those folks are Republicans. As a registered Republican who actually believes in GOP principles, some cannot tolerate my principled approach to politics. President Reagan talked about the 11th Commandment. The same people who believe it is wrong to dissect your primary opponent, or general election opponent, on the issues where you differ are probably the same folks who believe that “separation of church and state” is part of our Constitution. We are told by the most intelligent men who sat down and wrote the U. S. Constitution that they didn’t cover religion vs. state. What these great men did was ensure that government would never be allowed to force us into an established state religion! John McCain sticks with the GOP (many times) and they call him a “maverick”; I called out Republicans Grimm, Merrifield, Mosca, and others for dirty
“politics of personal destruction” against a good man, and a candidate that I will be pleased to call my state senator. For Republicans who would shy away from my approach I say, newsflash — it’s not about “The Party”, it’s about principles, and yes the 11th Commandment — which was never enforced in an attempt to ruin Josh Youseff, thus now aiding the Democrat who does not talk about any issues. I for one am tired of the media continually telling the same story everyday — re; the personal life of Josh Youseff. When will the “media” actually report to the citizens, readers, listeners, and viewers what the candidates for each office have for answers to specific issues? Every Democrat and Republican for N.H. House/Senate, County Commissioner for Belknap County should e-mail me (advocates@ wezs.com or firstname.lastname@example.org) to let me know you are interested in air time, and when is a good time for the interview. I am a voter and taxpayer in Belknap County and anxious to know your positions. Niel Young Laconia
Consider joining advisory committee focused on new county jail To the editor, Effective systems for law enforcement, correctional facilities and services that reduce crime and incarceration rates are essential to a healthy community. Construction of a new Belknap County Jail and Community Corrections Center need the commitment and expertise of those who are invested in better outcomes. A Jail Planning Committee has been working for two years on the initial phases of the project, following national best practices to implement new systems. One piece of that work includes the formation of a Community Advisory Committee. The Advisory Committee is designed to provide feedback and to ensure stakeholder interests as well as those of the community at large are met. We understand that our jail is a pressure point touching on our hospitals, emergency responders, law enforcement and city/ town welfare departments. The planning committee wants to be sure the taxpayers are represented and have voice for the future. It is by design that we are confident we can build
a system that will alleviate and not create more pressure. Each day, the county jail holds an average of 110 people. It is not only the lives of those who serve time in our facility but their families, friends, and the community they return to who are affected. Together with our many community partners, we hope to improve the quality of life, reduce the cost of recidivism, and make the most effective use of our resources while planning a new criminal justice system. If you are a concerned citizen of Belknap County, we encourage you to consider joining the Community Advisory Committee. Please send a letter of interest to the Jail Planning Committee at 34 County Dr, Laconia NH 03246 or via e-mail to dshackett@ belknapcounty.org. The committee size will be limited and will be active through completion of construction. Be a part of Belknap County’s Community Advisory Committee and contribute your time and energy to making a difference in our communities. The Belknap County Jail Planning Committee
Sen. Forrester has reached out frequently to every town in District 2 To the editor, I will enthusiastically vote to return Jeanie Forrester to her second term as Senator from District 2 and ask you to do the same. Jeanie and I first met while serving on several committees. It quickly became clear to me she had the instincts, intellect, experience and integrity to hold a public office and do it well. Since then as Senator from District 2 she has demonstrated her ability to understand the complexities of legislation and make difficult but well-reasoned decisions. She has worked diligently to understand the value of programs and to protect the most valuable while achieving a necessary budget. She has reached out frequently to every
their issues and to work diligently for their best outcome. She is in constant contact with citizen, Boards of Selectmen and business owners to hear their concerns and to keep them updated on progress with ongoing and upcoming legislation. Her web site and frequent e-mail letters provide excellent information about her activities and position on current and future legislation. Jeanie has demonstrated she is easily available to all her constituents with prompt replies to questions and requests. Her work schedule demonstrates she is a fulltime and fully-engaged senator. Please join me in returning Jeanie to the Senate by giving her your vote on November 6. David Thorpe

Bumper crop of poison ivy delays restoration of Gilford Outing Club hut By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
GILFORD — You could say that volunteer workers are itching to complete the restoration of the former Gilford Outing Club warming hut on Rte. 11-A, a project which has been in the works for several years and appeared on the verge of completion this summer. In fact they were so eager to complete the work that all but one of them actually was itching, developing rashes on their hands, arms and legs, from poison ivy which grows in abundance next to the highway and has spread all around the building. ‘’It got the point this summer that everyone working on the project except my daughter, Sarah, had developed a rash so I told Sheldon Morgan (Gilford Public Works director) that it just didn’t make sense to work on it until we could control the poison ivy,’’ says Carol Anderson, who had worked with her daughter on the restoration project for the last six years. Anderson says that Belknap Landscaping volunteered to spray the poison ivy with a weed killer several weeks ago and that while some of the ivy has died out a second application will most likely be needed to make the area safe once again for workers. And, once it’s reconstruction is complete, the humble, utilitarian building may join a list distinguished historic structures in this town, which this year celebrated its 200th birthday. Unused for 20 years, the building once served as PAWN from page one Belknap County Attorney Melissa Guldbrandsen said yesterday that one of the four convictions was a different theory of the same crime so Brent will be sentenced as as if he had three convictions. According to court documents, on October 11 and 12, 2011 Brent bought tools from Richard A. McNeil, 38, 113 Shaker Road in Belmont after he allegedly stole them from the Gilford Lowe’s store. McNeil pleaded guilty in July to one count of felony receiving stolen property in connection to the Lowe’s thefts. He was sentenced to 12 months in the Belknap County House of Corrections. Documents said McNeil took the items, including a Bostitch framing nailer, a Bostitch finish nailer a Hitachi cordless drill combo kit and a Dewalt 20 volt hammer drill, to Brent who paid cash for them and who intended to resell them. Laconia Police Detectives arrested Brent after they learned McNeil had hawked the power tools valued at more than $1,000. Guldbrandsen said video surveillance at the Gilford Lowe’s corroborated McNeil’s admission to police. “This is an example of proactive community policing by the Laconia Police Department,” Gulbrandsen said in a press release. “It is very common for thieves to bring stolen property to pawn shops and while many shops comply with the law, we expect due diligence before property is accepted at a pawn shop.” Guldbrandsen said yesterday that she feels so sorry for the victims of property crime — especially those who loose heirloom pieces with sentimental value. “So often, they’re just melted down and the metal is sold,” she said. The message she hopes pawn shops owners throughout Belknap County understand is that if they work to limit the market for stolen goods then the people who are inclined to steal them may be deterred. “This was a great job and a great investigation,” said Laconia Police Chief Christopher Adams yesterday. He said the city has a number of pawn shops and the city has a high level of property crime and, unfortunately, the two can go hand-in-hand. He said about two years ago, the city strengthened its ordinances governing pawn shops and the new ordinances have made it easier for police to track potentially stolen property. “The ordinance certainly keeps us in the fight,” he said. “We expect that pawn shop owners who suspect something is stolen are responsible enough to see next page
Poison ivy has taken over much of the ground around the former Gilford Outing Club warming hut on Rte. 11-A and halted work on the restoration of the building. Belknap Landscaping has sprayed the plants in an effort to eradicate them but a second treatment may be needed. (Roger Amsden/for The Laconia Daily Sun)
a warming hut for generations of novice skiers who took part in the Gilford Outing Club’s programs, among them future Olympian Penny Pitou, who grew up on Potter Hill Road, just above the small ski slope. The 65-year-old building was built by Francis Piche and his brothers, Eli and Fred in 1947, the year that the Gilford Outing Club was formed by Gus Pitou, Gary Allen and Marty Hall, Sr. Originally located on Schoolhouse Hill Road with a rope tow powered by a four-cylinder Ford engine, the building was moved to the bottom of the hill off of Cherry Valley Road (Rte. 11-A) in 1950. Another building was constructed at the top of the hill, named the “tow shack,” which housed the engine used for the rope tow on the hill. Over the years the club grew and had four ski slopes on the hill, volunteer and then paid instructors and even a second hand snowcat purchased
from Gunstock. But the rising cost of liability insurance proved too much for the GOC, which closed the slope for good in 1992 and turned its Gus Pitou Fund for support of alpine skiers over to the Gunstock Ski Club and its Marty Hall Fund over the Gunstock Nordic Association. In 1994 Gary and Lucille Allen donated a conservation easement on the nearly 18 acres of land to the town, which now owns the property. The unused building continued to age, its paint peeling and porch rotting until about six years ago, when it caught the attention of Sarah Anderson, then 10 years old. ‘’I found out about the history of the building at a Thompson-Ames Historical Society meeting and I thought that it was sad that it wasn’t used any more. I talked to my parents about it and said ‘let’s do something about that.’ That’s how it all got started,’’ she says. Since that time, the energetic home-schooled youngster, with the help of her parents, Carol and John, has written dozens of letters seeking support for restoring the hut and has raised over $10,000, some $4,000 of which came in the form of a matching grant from Meredith Village Savings Bank. And she’s hoping that someday the building will be listed on the state’s register of historical buildings and that the entire property will be recorded as an historic site. Her mother, Carol, said that the shell of the building is now complete and that historically accurate walls built by students at the Huot Technical Center in Laconia have been put in place. She said that Page Roofing will be putting on shingles this fall and many of the original windows will be put back in place before siding is installed. ‘’We’re hoping we can get it all done this fall,’’ says Anderson, who encourages people who would like to volunteer work or materials for the project to call Gilford Publics Work Director Sheldon Morgan, who has been supervising the restoration project.

HOUSE from page one heart attack. He would have died had it not for the paramedic’s defibrillator. The medical crisis resulted in a total life change for the Belchers. They moved to New Hampshire, where Linda found work as a substitute teacher. She found success as an educator, and is now a veteran kindergarten teacher in Gilford. Belcher couldn’t work for a few years as he recovered, even afterward damage to his heart prevents him from working more than a few hours each day. Fortunately, they had saved enough during their younger years that they had enough for him to start in the property management business and he now operates several rental properties in Laconia. One of his business contacts, real estate broker Carl Chamberlain, tipped him off to the Harvard Street property when it came on the market. Despite its run-down condition, Belcher saw its potential and recognized a tremendous opportunity. Still under ownership of Folsom’s descendants, the grand home was divided into a two-family structure in the 1920s. In 1936, though, Belcher’s research shows, the family lost the property to foreclosure. Laconia Savings Bank owned the home for nearly three decades. The property passed through three different owners, including one who performed a particularly uninspired 1970s renovation to further divide the space within the home. “It was a three-family, but it was a hacked three family,” said Belcher. After the last owner’s death, the property reverted to ownership of Fannie Mae, which sold it to Belcher in July of this year for the song-and-a-dance price of $75,500. While the costs of renovation will well exceed the purchase price, Belcher still thinks he’s got himself a great deal. All summer, a team of various contractors have been giving the property a top-to-bottom revitalization. Notable contractors on the project have been Chichester-based carpenter John O’Connor and Kyle Jensen of New Heights Roofing of Concord, which helped find replacement windows in the unusual, floor-to-ceiling size, featured in the home. The renovation has included a new roof, new siding, new windows and insulation, new kitchens, bathrooms and HVAC, and he’s returning the home to the two-family design first employed in 1925. He still doesn’t know how much all the work will add up to, but he’s sure it will result in a luxurious, twofamily home for about the price of a middling condominium. “This is an example of the deals you can find,” said Belcher, who added that he hopes to inspire others to seek out similar opportunities, especially in Laconia. Here, he said, there are many once-stately mansions in the downtown area, which are on the market at depressed prices. “This is a wonderful time to buy properties. It’s rarely a time when these are costeffective to do. The numbers make sense, the values are fantastic.” He and Linda currently live in Meredith, though their home there is under contract to be sold in October. They were looking to downsize and move closer to Laconia and Gilford, he said, and were looking at condos when they thought there might be better options. “Why buy a condo when you can buy a whole two-family?” The Belchers will live in the upstairs unit, while the first-floor will be rented. Both units will feature 1,900-square-feet of living space, including three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Belcher is eager to call himself a downtown Laconia resident. “You’re living in the prettiest part of the state, you have all the convenience of living downtown.” Within a few minutes’ walk, he can be see next page from preceding page call the police.” Adams also said that many of the city’s pawn shop owners obey the rules and are proactive and helpful in their dealings with police. This year and at the encouragement of their individual police chiefs, selectmen in Gilford and Belmont also enacted stricter ordinances for secondhand dealers and pawn shops with the same goal of

Gilford selectmen propose 2013 budget that’s up 1.16% By Gail OBer
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
GILFORD — After an all-day session last week, selectmen approved recommending an $11,949,088 budget for 2013, which represents an overall increase of 1.16 percent or $81,855 more than this year. In presenting the recommendation, Selectman’s Chair Gus Benavides said next year’s budget was made especially difficult by the mandatory increases in the town’s contribution to the N.H. State Retirement system. Benavides said rate of the town’s contribution to firefighters’ retirement rose 21 percent, the police contribution rate rose 26 percent, and the other employee’s contribution rate rose 22 percent. In the N.H. State Retirement System, police officers and firefighters pay a different rate than do other municipal employees. Selectmen also said they have proposed a budget that doesn’t call for any layoffs although they said there are a few part-time openings that may remain unfilled. from preceding page at either Opechee Park, the Post Office, one of several bank branches, or any of the downtown’s retail stores or eateries. The low prices of properties might be reflective of a slumping period in the downtown’s history, he said, but he thinks its intrinsic values remain. Laconia, he said, “is due for a renaissance, and I want to be part of it... I’m hoping this inspires other people to do the same thing.”

carry a gun didn’t put Vaughn at risk. “England doesn’t allow police officers to carry guns,” he said. “Sometime the strongest weapon in law enforcement is communication.” Vaughn, a town of about 450 located 104 miles east of Albuquerque, is a quiet town that is an overnight stop for railroad workers. And while residents say there is no crime problem, the town is set deep in what U.S. Homeland Security Investigations officials say is an isolated region of the state popular with drug traffickers.

“I don’t see any problems finding the money to fix Engine 4,” Ruggles said, addressing the concern expressed two weeks ago by Fire Chief Steve Carrier that his maintenance budget didn’t have the money to repair the pumper tanker. He said those repairs could cost as much as $60,000 or $70,000 and involve installing a new pump and housing into the 25-year-old truck. Public Works Director Sheldon Morgan said he and Carrier are meeting on Monday to discuss the repairs his department can perform on the firetruck. The selectman’s proposed budget will be presented to the Budget Committee on October 4. In other news, selectmen voted unanimously to hire the Portsmouth law firm of Donahue, Tucker and Ciandella, PLLC for the town’s legal matters as of January 1, 2013. For years the Mitchell Municipal Group, PC of Laconia has done the bulk of the town’s legal work.
Selectman John O’Brien said he felt the staff levels throughout the town were down to “bare bones” and any cuts in staffing could reduce service levels — something selectmen said they were not going to do. Benavides said they eliminated $936,011 from requests from department heads. Finance Director Geoff Ruggles said about $700,000 was eliminated from a warrant article proposed for some major repairs to Town Hall. In his update to selectmen, Ruggles said last night that overall the budget for the balance of this year looks good. He said so far this year, revenues are up seven percent with motor vehicle revenues up about four to five percent over the past five months. He also said ambulance revenue was up about 19 percent over last year. Expenditures, said Ruggles, are down this year by about $120,000 from last year.

KUSTER from page 2 In a statement Wednesday, Kuster said she expects to be videotaped at public events, but the Bass staffer, Bryan Klepacki, went too far. “After the Bass staff member repeatedly interrupted a private conversation I was having and nearly hit me in the face with his video camera, I briefly took the camera from him and asked one of my supporters to return it moments later,” she said. She accused the Bass campaign of leaking the video to nhjournal.com in an attempt to deceive
voters and said, “This type of political bullying aimed at keeping Congressman Bass in political power at all costs is exactly what is wrong with Congress.” Bass spokesman Scott Tranchemontagne said Klepacki was simply trying to ask Kuster about Biden’s speech. He said Bass frequently encounters so-called campaign trackers and is always polite to them, even when they are aggressive. “What’s telling is when she utters the derogatory comment, she clearly doesn’t think the camera is see next page

County putting together citizens’ advisory committee to help with new jail project BY ROGER AMSDEN FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — A Jail Planning Committee which has been working for two years to develop a plan for a new Belknap County Jail and Community Corrections Center is looking for interested members of the public to volunteer to serve on a Community Advisory Committee envisioned to provide feedback on the project. ‘’We want to involve stakeholders and members of the community at large in this process,’’ says Belknap County Commission Chairman Ed Philpot of Laconia. ‘’This is a community effort and nothing should come as a surprise. We’ve made a lot of progress since we recognized the need for a new facility and want others to be involved in the process as well,’’ said Philpot. He said that one of the exciting things about the process is that it’s not just about a new building but also about a building a new system that will better meet the needs of the community and makes the most effective use of existing community resources. ‘’We have undergone a complete study of our criminal justice system. We hired a national consultant, David Bennett who spent six months developing recommendations to assist us in transforming the way we manage our inmate population. Because the most expensive cost to the county is the “housing” costs for inmates; food, laundry, and medical care, we are focusing on reducing recidivism rates and creating a facility that will allow for more instructional and programming space. We are considering existing community services to see where we might work together, rather than duplicating efforts. This is a philosoEGYPT from page 2 “The fruits of dignity and freedom must not remain far from the Palestinian people,” he said, adding that it was “shameful” that U.N. resolutions are not enforced. The Palestinians are expected to again ask for U.N. recognition and formally make application to the world body in November, after the U.S. presidential election. President Barack Obama said when the Palestinians sought recognition last year that Washington would block the move until there was a peace deal with Israel. The focus of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations, which have been on hold for four years, is a two-state solution that would formally grant the Palestinians the rights of an independent country. In his bid to end the violence in Syria, Morsi has invited Turkey, Iran and Saudi Arabia to join a contact group, though the Saudis have not yet participated and the fighting in Syria continues unabated.

phy we believe in and continue to explore,’’ said Philpot. He said that the county has hired a New York-based consulting firm, Ricci Greene, for $160,000 to develop a plan for a new jail which will reflect the programming and space priorities and that these will serve as the basis for an architect to design a new facility. A letter inviting community participation which was sent out by the Jail Planning Committee this week notes that each day, the county jail holds an average of 110 people. ‘’We understand that our jail is a pressure point touching on our hospitals, emergency responders, law enforcement and city/town welfare departments. The planning committee wants to be sure the taxpayers are represented and have voice for the future. It is by design that we are confident we can build a system that will alleviate and not create more pressure.’’ the letter says. Philpot said that he, along with County Administrator Debra Shackett, County Jail Superintendent Daniel Ward and County Corrections Officer David Berry took part in an intense five-day session in Colorado this summer on the planning of new jail and corrections facilities and that he was pleasantly surprised to see how well the county planning process is in tune with the recommendations that were made at that the session. Those interested in joining the Community Advisory Committee are advised to send a letter of interest to the Jail Planning Committee at 34 County Drive, Laconia NH 03246 or via email to email@example.com. The committee size will be limited and will be active through completion of construction. Morsi wants Assad to step aside, he said Wednesday that he opposes any foreign military intervention. The U.N. Security Council, which could call for intervention or global sanctions against Syria, is deadlocked because Russia, Assad’s main protector, and China have blocked a series of resolutions brought by Western governments. Morsi also denounced as an obscenity the anti-Islam video that portrays the Prophet Muhammad as a womanizer, a child molester and a fraud, insisting that freedom of expression does not allow for attacks on any religion. He also condemned the violence that swept Muslim countries last week in reaction to the video. At least 51 people were killed, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans targeted in an attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. “Egypt respects freedom of expression. One that is not used to incite hatred against anyone. One that is not directed toward one specific religion or culture. A freedom of expression that tackles extremism and violence. Not the freedom of expression that deepens ignorance and disregards others,” Morsi said. He appeared to have been responding to Obama’s General Assembly speech Tuesday in which the U.S. leader again condemned the video but sternly defended the U.S. Constitution’s free speech guarantees.

County to begin search for highly qualified nursing home director By RogeR Amsden LACONIA — Belknap County Commissioners have decided to launch a search for a new administrator at the Belknap County Nursing Home and are hoping that they will be able to name a successor to Courtney Marshall, who died of an apparent heart attack earlier this month, sometime in the next six months. County Administrator Debra Shackett is the acting administrator of home and she told commissioners Wednesday that things are running smoothly but state officials tell her that is important that the county start the recruitment process for a licensed nursing home administrator soon. Commissioners asked Shackett if there is anyone on the current staff who is licensed or could take over in the near future and she said that she didn’t believe there was. Commissioner John Thomas pointed out that Strafford County has a county administrator who is also licensed as a certified nursing home administrator, which allows the county to fulfill the requirement with just one person. Shackett said it would be ‘’a no-brainer’’ if she had the license and the knowledge needed to assume those duties to have her do it, but since she is not licensed, and it would take at least 15 specific college credits for her to qualify, the county cannot realistically look at that as an option. ‘’There are technical and medical aspects that have to be dealt with and I’m out of my element. The state said it is important to have someone on site
who is familiar with all state and federal requirements,’’ said Shackett, which led Commission Chairman Ed Philpot to say that in light of the progress made over the last five years under Marshall, the county should be looking for someone who will buy into the management philosophy of the county. ‘’We’ve made a lot of progress and we don’t want to slide back,’’ said Philpot, who said problems which developed at the county home prior to Marshall’s tenure were due to ‘’a general administrative services failure.’’ He said that the progress can be seen in two straight years in which the nursing home has received perfect scores from the state for its compliance with all applicable regulations. ‘’We’re going to be looking for the very best,’’ said Commissioner Stephen Nedeau. Philpot said that whoever takes the position will have to be ‘’fully on board with this management team’’ and Nedeau said he likes the current process in which ‘’the administrator over there (the nursing home) is answerable to someone over here.’’ Shackett said that since the county handles human resources, finances and general administration for the nursing home it makes it easier for the administrator at the nursing home to focus on nursing home issues. Shackett said that for the nursing home administrator ‘’time demands are not great, but what has to be done demands a great deal of responsibility.’’ A memorial service was held for Marshall at the county home yesterday so that residents and staff who were unable to attend services in Grantham last week could honor his memory.
MEREDITH from page one whole shebang over there,” quipped board member Lou Kahn. Concerns about traffic, in particular the location of the entrance to the drugstore, have dogged the project since it was first presented it to the board for a design review last December. The 15,000-squarefoot store would be built on a 2.77-acre lot between the Irving travel plaza and the Trinity Episcopal Church The plan presented this week featured a shared driveway serving both Rite-Aid and Irving, which would be directly opposite Abbey Lane, the entrance to Meredith Bay Village. Initially the entrance was planned for northeast corner of the site. When the Planning Board reviewed the design in January, members suggested instead that Rite-Aid share the driveway with Irving. Frank Montero of MHF Design agreed that a shared entrance was preferable, but said that Cobalt Properties, which owns the Irving site, had not responded to overtures from Rite-Aid. The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (DOT) also preferred a shared entrance, but failing that recommended the entrance be located
as far from Irving’s driveway as possible. However, DOT ultimately rejected the plan, prompting RiteAid to make a fresh approach to Cobalt, which led to the latest design featuring the shared driveway. Jeffrey Dirk, a traffic engineer with Vanasse & Associates, Inc. of Andover, Mass., said that in addition to relocating the entrance Rite-Aid will propose placing a pedestrian crossing equidistant between the two driveways serving the Irving travel plaza, which are approximately 200 feet apart. He explained that pedestrian crossings cannot be placed at intersections without signals because they do not control traffic or within 100 feet of an intersection. He said the crossing would be marked by a signal that flashed yellow after a pedestrian pressed a button then turned red allowing the pedestrian to cross. The DOT must approve both the shared driveway and the pedestrian crossing. With the driveway issue unresolved, Rite-Aid has yet to submit a site plan or make a formal application. Dean Gulezian., a director of the condominium association at Meredith Bay Village, reminded the board that several years ago the association had see next page

County for 24 years, and he’s never seen anything like that. When you have that many bodies involved in a crash, it’s terrible.” All seven of the men in the van were from Liberal, Kan., and were headed to work at the Booker Packing Co. plant a few miles south of the Texas border in Booker, Randolph said. The Highway Patrol said late Wednesday the van with five passengers was being driven eastbound by Alejandro Mejia Lopez on U.S. 412 when a 2012 Chevy Suburban driven westbound by Bobby Carroll Matthews crossed the center line and hit the van head-on. Police said they do not know what caused the 55-year-old Matthews, of Woodward, Okla., to lose control of his vehicle.
CHEMIST from page 2 she analyzed drug samples. She changed her story after they confronted her with a Boston Police Department retest of a suspected cocaine sample that came back negative after Dookhan identified it as the narcotic. Police also told her the number of samples she reported analyzing were too high and that she couldn’t have done all the tests. The report shows Dookhan then admitted to “dry labbing,” or identifying drug samples by looking at them instead of testing them. She said she tested about five out of 25 samples she got from evidence, after routinely getting a large amount of samples from different cases out of the
evidence room. She also told police she contaminated samples a few times in order to get more work finished, but that no one asked her to do anything improper. “I intentionally turned a negative sample into a positive a few times,” Dookhan said in a signed statement she gave police. Dookhan also told investigators she routinely skirted proper procedures by looking up data for assistant district attorneys who called her directly rather than going through the evidence department. State police say Dookhan tested more than 60,000 drug samples submitted in the cases of about 34,000 defendants during her nine years at the lab. She resigned in March amid an internal investigation by the Department of Public Health. After state police took over the lab in July as part of a state budget directive, they said they discovered her alleged violations were much more extensive than previously believed and went beyond sloppiness into malfeasance and deliberate mishandling of drug samples. In the August police interview, Dookhan said that in June 2011 she improperly took 90 samples that weren’t assigned to her from evidence and forged another person’s initials on a log book after a supervisor questioned her about it.
from preceding page asked the DOT to install a pedestrian crossing across Route 25 only to have their request denied. He said that although residents qualified as abutters, the association was not notified of the proposal when it was originally presented. Town Planner Angela LaBrecque said that the town was not informed that the developer had not transferred management of the complex to the association.

ELMWOOD, Okla. (AP) — An SUV veered across a highway median in the Oklahoma Panhandle early Wednesday and slammed head-on into an oncoming van full of men headed to work at a Texas meatpacking plant, killing both drivers and five of the six van passengers, authorities said. The 2012 Chevy Suburban was moving fast and passed a couple of trucks on U.S. Highway 412 just before it crossed the center line and collided with a 2003 Ford van near Elmwood, Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Betsy Randolph said. She said investigators were trying to determine whether the SUV was speeding. “It was pretty horrific,” Randolph said. “The lieutenant I talked to said he’d worked in Beaver

hope that voters will come out and meet Jeanie on Wednesday night.” Danbury, Grafton, Hill, Tilton and Wilmot are all now part of Senate District 2 as a result of this year’s constitutionally-required redistricting. “I am honored to have the support of a local leader like Jim Phelps and look forward to meeting the voters on Wednesday night,” said Forrester. “As I go door-to-door and speak with voters one-on-one, I keep hearing the same thing — keep government in check so that we can get our economy growing again. That is exactly what I will continue do with the support of the voters of District 2.”
DANBURY — On Wednesday, October 3 from 6 to 7:30 p.m., Selectman Jim Phelps will be hosting District 2 State Senator Jeanie Forrester.

Boy Scout Troop 68 collecting information on its own history Sunday
LACONIA — Boy Scout Troop 68 will turn 75 years old in 2013 and sadly there is minimal historical information on file!.The Norman Tourigney Scout Hut (named after a long running Scoutmaster), located in the parking lot behind Holy Trinity School, on Church Street is the scene of a not yet finished museum. Plaques hang on the wall, trophies, and campout memorabilia rest in corners and on shelves and none of them hold any meaning as their history is unknown. Troop 68 is actively searching for any and all information regarding the troop. On Sunday, September 30 from noon to 3 p.m. current boy scouts and leaders from the troop will be at the Scout Hut ready to recieve any information. Stories, memorabilia, and any other items are of interest and will be accepted with great appreciation.

by Darby Conley
By Holiday Mathis you noticed how Mars in your sign acts like a drill sergeant intent on making a stronger person of you? You’ll soon feel equipped to not only deal with challenges, but to reign supreme over them. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). As the sign of the archer, you realize that stopping to take aim before you shoot means avoiding wasted motion, not to mention reducing your potential for an accident. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The process of “becoming” can be painful, exciting, joyous, uncomfortable, deeply fulfilling and all of those things at once. However you feel, know that it’s not right or wrong. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There is no definite answer for an undefined problem. Name the elements involved. Once you start to realize exactly what’s wrong, you can easily set it right. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). As the moon resonates with Neptune in your sign, the better you connect with your heart and feelings the more able you are to grasp higher genius. You can bring ethereal worlds of poetic imagination to life. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 27). Something inside shifts, and you gain an altered sense of purpose. You’ll notice the influx of financial and travel opportunities immediately. In October, you will free yourself from a stifling arrangement. November brings spiritual union. January’s projects open new social circles. You could move in May. Capricorn and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 1, 24, 39 and 18.
by Chad Carpenter
ARIES (March 21-April 19). The facts that slip from your memory do not really go anywhere. Rather, they embed themselves too deeply to be recalled on command. Your thought process will support your life perfectly. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You want to expand yourself and will be extremely choosy as to how to go about this. Your interest in a person will, by extension, make you interested in whatever that person is interested in. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Shortcuts are not inherently lazy. Today they will be an efficient use of time. Ask for the abbreviated directions or the short version of a story. Think about how you might get more bang for your buck. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re still trying to get better at a certain task. Your best approach to mastering this will be highly structured and scientific. Focusing smaller is better than mindless repetition of lengthier processes. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your day has a kind of formula to it that you will deliberately complicate in order to keep yourself from the old ennui. Your creative complications will bring the intended thrills. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You take your work very seriously and strive to perform at the highest level. That doesn’t mean you always have to do it with a straight face. Said “highest level” is often marked by humor and ease. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Working with a team will produce better results with less of an energy expenditure. You’ll express yourself in conjunction with others, happily compromising at the appropriate times. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Have

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Thursday, Sept. 27, the 271st day of 2012. There are 95 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 27, 1962, “Silent Spring,” Rachel Carson’s groundbreaking as well as controversial study on the effects of pesticides on the environment, was published in book form by Houghton Mifflin. On this date: In 1540, Pope Paul III issued a papal bull establishing the Society of Jesus, or Jesuits, as a religious order. In 1779, John Adams was named by Congress to negotiate the Revolutionary War’s peace terms with Britain. In 1854, the first great disaster involving an Atlantic Ocean passenger vessel occurred when the steamship SS Arctic sank off Newfoundland; of the more than 400 people on board, only 86 survived. In 1862, during the Civil War, the Union Army’s first all-black regiment, the self-described “Chasseurs d’Afrique” (Hunters of Africa), was formed in New Orleans (which was then under Northern control). In 1928, the United States said it was recognizing the Nationalist Chinese government. In 1939, Warsaw, Poland, surrendered after weeks of resistance to invading forces from Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union during World War II. In 1941, the United States launched 14 rapidly built “Liberty” military cargo vessels. In 1942, Glenn Miller and his Orchestra performed together for the last time, at the Central Theater in Passaic, N.J., prior to Miller’s entry into the Army. In 1954, “Tonight!,” hosted by Steve Allen, made its debut on NBC-TV. In 1964, the government publicly released the report of the Warren Commission, which found that Lee Harvey Oswald had acted alone in assassinating President John F. Kennedy. In 1979, Congress gave its final approval to forming the U.S. Department of Education. In 1994, more than 350 Republican congressional candidates gathered on the steps of the U.S. Capitol to sign the “Contract with America,” a 10-point platform they pledged to enact if voters sent a GOP majority to the House. One year ago: Opening statements in the Los Angeles trial of Michael Jackson’s personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, took place as prosecutors accused Murray of killing the superstar through irresponsible use of the anesthetic propofol, and the defense maintaining Jackson had caused his own death. Today’s Birthdays: Actress Jayne Meadows is 92. Actress Kathleen Nolan is 79. Actor Wilford Brimley is 78. Actor Claude Jarman Jr. is 78. Author Barbara Howar is 78. World Golf Hall of Famer Kathy Whitworth is 73. Singer-musician Randy Bachman is 69. Rock singer Meat Loaf is 65. Actress Liz Torres is 65. Actor A Martinez is 64. Baseball Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt is 63. Actor Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa is 62. Singer Shaun Cassidy is 54. Rock singer Stephan Jenkins is 48. Actor Patrick Muldoon is 44. Singer Mark Calderon is 42.

LACONIA — Launched in 2004, the Lilly Oncology On Canvas Art Competition and Exhibition invites people from the United States and Puerto Rico diagnosed with any type of cancer – as well as their families, friends, caregivers and healthcare providers – to express through art and narrative, the life-affirming changes that give their cancer journeys meaning. In collaboration with LRGHealthcare, this free public exhibition will showcase select pieces of art from the 2010 Lilly Oncology On Canvas competition. The exhibition will be on display from
Monday, October 1, through Monday, October 15, in the Lakes Region General Hospital Atrium, Laconia. Lilly Oncology On Canvas is dedicated to delivering innovative solutions that improve the care of people living with cancer, in partnership with the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS). NCCS is a nonprofit cancer organization that advocates for quality cancer care for all people touched by cancer and provides tools that empower people to advocate for themselves. For more information, visit the NCCS website at www.canceradvocacy.org.
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, September 27, 2012— Page 21
Dear Annie: I am 38 and have been with my husband for 18 years. We have built a wonderful life with great kids, but circumstances led to a separation. I was the one who wanted it. My husband is a good guy, but he just hasn’t been able to give me the love I want. Something is always more important. He now says he’s willing to do anything to make this marriage work. But he’s promised that before, and after a short time, I am on the back burner again. A few months ago, I ran into a man I hadn’t seen in years. He is divorced. One thing led to another, and, well, you can figure it out. Now, I have two really great guys in my life, and I want them both. My husband is a stable, sensible, great father. My guy friend is fun, sweet and the best lover I have ever had. I know I am being selfish, and I feel guilty, but apparently not guilty enough to make a choice between them. How do I decide? -- Used To Be Sensible in Milwaukee Dear Milwaukee: There are children involved in this mess, and you should think of them. Ideally, you and your husband would work on this together and make your marriage stronger. It requires that you both get back into counseling, that he sticks to the plan and that you give up your boyfriend. If you are not ready to do that, please get a legal separation from your husband and put a custody and visitation plan into effect while you sort this out. Don’t wait too long. Your husband may decide he is entitled to look elsewhere for happiness, too. Dear Annie: I was recently invited to a small, informal engagement party. The invitation said, “No gifts, please,” so I followed that. But when I arrived, there was a table with quite a few cards, a bottle of wine and other small boxes. My uncle is getting married soon for the second time. He
is having the ceremony and a dinner at a local restaurant. His invitation also says, “No gifts, please, only best wishes.” My sister says we must get him a gift, or we are being cheap, no matter what the invitation says. But I would think people would be miffed if they received presents they specifically said they didn’t want. I don’t want to make the same mistake again. Is a card not enough? -- Not Sure Dear Not Sure: When someone requests “no gifts,” that is exactly what it means. People who bring presents anyway are insecure about the request and feel they must buy something regardless. Of course, etiquette also says “no gifts” does not belong on an invitation because it implies that gifts are otherwise expected. If you insist on giving a present, we suggest a donation to their favorite charity in honor of their nuptials. Dear Annie: The letter from “The Drunk’s Wife” brought back some memories. My husband hangs out at a local bar with his buddies. One evening, when it was well past the time he usually comes home, I went to the garage to see whether he had driven the golf cart home yet. I found him lying between the wall and the cart. He had been trying to recharge the cart, but was so drunk he fell and passed out. Once I got him into bed, I called the bar and told them if it happened again, I would call the police, and they could lose their liquor license. I said I was not only protecting my husband and those he encountered on the road, but also the bar business. The next day when he was sober, I told him what I did. He was angry, but he needed to know how many people would be affected by his drunk driving. Fortunately, the bartender now watches and limits his drinks, and my husband is more careful because he knows I’ll report him to the police. It’s because I love him. -- A Caring Wife
