Board anticipates ‘Great Conversation about what Laconia expects of its schools
Gilford schools returning all of nearly $1-million surplus to taxpayers By AdAm dRApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
GILFORD — The School District ended the 2011-2012 school year with nearly $1-million in unreserved funds, the School Board learned last night. Scott Isabelle, the assistant superintendent for business, reported that a yearend audit, performed by the firm Plodzik and Sanderson, showed $824,844.92 remaining in the general fund and $100,839.54 in the food service fund. The money will be used to offset the need to raise additional taxes for the current school year. Isabelle told the board he’d present a more detailed accounting of the balance in November. Speaking in general terms, though, he said significant savings were found in the account for heating oil, also in the budget line for administrative salaries. “It’s always nice to give money back, so to speak,” said board chair Paul Blandford.

LACONIA — The Laconia School Board is eyeing what it calls ‘The Great Conversation’ within the community on public education. Board members were enthused after watching a 10-minute video at Tuesday night’s meeting which outlined the many non-academic responsibilities which have been added to public schools over the last century and said that they hope to share the video and its content with the community. Produced by Jamie Vollmer, author of the 2010 book ‘’Schools Cannot Do It Alone’’, the video is one of three the board will be viewing this fall to familiarize members with the content of the book and the ideas it outs forth for strengthening public education. see sCHOOLs page 12

At convention, Dems ridicule Romney as man who ‘doesn’t get it’ CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Democrats ridiculed Republican Mitt Romney as a millionaire candidate for president who “quite simply doesn’t get it” and worse on Tuesday, opening night of a national convention aimed at propelling Barack Obama to reelection despite high unemployment and national economic distress. Obama “knows better than anyone there’s more hard work to do” to fix the sputtering economy, said San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, the convention keynote speaker, sharing the prime-time spotlight with first lady Michelle Obama. After the deep recession, Castro said in excerpts released in advance of his speech, the nation is making progress “despite incredible odds and united Republican opposition.” He declared that 4.5 million jobs have been created since the president took office — though that number refers only to private sector employment
gains over the past 29 months and leaves out state and local government jobs that continue to disappear each month. Obama was back home in the White House after a campaign appearance in Virginia earlier in the day. He said he’d be watching on television when his wife spoke. There was no end to the appeals for donations to his re-election campaign, falling further behind Romney in cash on hand with each passing month. “If you think Barack’s the right man for the job, please show your support with a donation of $5 or more today,” the first lady emailed supporters a little more than 90 minutes before her scheduled speech. Polls made the race for the White House a tight one, almost certain to be decided in a string of eight or 10 battleground states where neither the president nor Romney holds a clear advantage. And during the day there was ample evidence of an underperforming economy, from a report that said
manufacturing activity declined for a third straight month to the Treasury’s announcement that the government’s debt exceeded $16 trillion at the close of the business day. Castro, the first Hispanic chosen to deliver a keynote address, was unsparing in criticizing Romney, suggesting the former Massachusetts governor might not even be the driving force on the Republican ticket this fall. “First they called it ‘trickle down, the supply side,” he said of the economic proposals backed by Republicans. “Now it’s Romney/Ryan. Or is it Ryan/ Romney?” “Either way, their theory has been tested. It failed. ...Mitt Romney just doesn’t get it,” Castro said. Romney’s running mate is Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan. The divide over taxes goes to the core of the campaign. Romney and the Republicans favor extension of see DEMOCRATS page 10
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Treasury Department said Tuesday that the national debt has topped $16 trillion, the result of chronic government deficits that have poured more than $50,000 worth of red ink onto federal ledgers for every man, woman and child in the United States. The news was greeted with a round of press releases from Barack Obama’s GOP rivals, who used the grim-but-expected news to criticize the president for the government’s fiscal performance over his 3 1/2 years in office. Obama has presided over four straight years of trillion dollar-plus deficits after inheriting a weak economy from his predecessor, George W. Bush.
“We can no longer push off the tough decisions until tomorrow,” said No. 2 House Republican Eric Cantor, R-Va. “It’s time to address the serious fiscal challenges we face and stop spending money we don’t have.” Last summer, Cantor dropped out of a set of budget talks hosted by Vice President Joe Biden, citing the insistence of the White House on tax increases to help close deficits that require the government to borrow 33 cents of every dollar it spends. The spiraling debt means that lawmakers and the eventual winner of the White House in November will have to pass a law early next year to raise the government’s borrowing cap from the current ceilsee DEBT page 8
Why do Social Security U.S. national debt tops $16-trillion mark police need 174k bullets? WASHINGTON (AP) — It didn’t take long for the Internet to start buzzing with conspiracy theories after the Social Security Administration posted a notice that it was purchasing 174,000 hollow-point bullets. Why is the agency that provides benefits to retirees, disabled workers, widows and children stockpiling ammunition? Whom are they going to use it on? “It’s not outlandish to suggest that the Social Security Administration is purchasing the bullets as part of preparations for civil unrest,” the website Infowars.com said. Another website, The Daily Caller, said the bullets must be for use against American citizens, “since the SSA has never been used overseas to help foreign countries maintain control of their citizens.” The clamor became such a distraction for the agency that it dedicated a website to explaining the purchase. The explanation, it turns out, isn’t as tantalizing as an arms buildup to defend against unruly senior citizens. The bullets are for Social Security’s office of inspector general, which has about 295 agents who investigate Social Security fraud and other crimes, see BULLETS page 11 Meredith Cinema Meredith Shopping Ctr. • 279-7836 www.barnzs.com
Pickup trucks drive U.S. auto sales to 3-year high
DETROIT (AP) — Big pickups carried U.S. auto sales to their highest level in three years. Demand for full-size pickups jumped 16 percent in August, helping to make it the strongest sales month since August 2009. Overall auto sales increased 20 percent from a year earlier to nearly 1.3 million, according to Autodata corp. The rising demand shows that businesses need to replace aging trucks and feel more confident about the

Watering the weeds & pulling the flowers Happy Labor Day! And what better time than this annual celebration of America’s working stiffs to draw attention to our national economic recovery? As those attached to the Dow Jones Average can attest, the economy is now perking along quite nicely, with the Dow up 57-percent since the dark days of 2009, presently soaring above 13,000. Also, the nation’s pile of wealth has grown impressively, executive paychecks have zoomed back up to Zip-a-DeeDoo-Dah levels, and sales at stores like Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue are absolutely crackerjack! The only little cloud over this otherwise sunshiny recovery is ... well, you. You people for whom Labor Day is named, that is. Not only did Wall Street’s crash knock jobs, wages, benefits, homeownership and middle-class opportunities into the ditch, but they’re still stuck there — and even sinking lower. Yet the financial elites, political establishment and media powers remain rapturously focused on the Dow, uncaring about the precipitous decline in the Doug Jones Average. If Doug and Donna aren’t prospering, neither is America, no matter how much wealth the privileged few are lavishing on luxury goods or socking away in offshore tax havens. The stark status of the Doug was dramatically highlighted in an Aug. 24 report from the Labor Department on laid-off workers. Of the 6.1-million Americans who lost stable jobs since 2009, when the “recovery” officially began, nearly half are still out of work. Also, more than half of those who did find jobs took big hits in pay, thus whacking their families’ standard of living and holding back the economy’s critically needed revival of consumer spending. Those who’ve been knocked down are mostly not low-skilled poor people, but middle-class folks like Andrew McMenemy, whose software firm pulled the plug on his $80,000-a-year high-tech job in 2010. He has finally found another job, but it pays under $20,000 a year, with no benefits. At 53 years of age, McMenemy has had to move in with his father. Knocking down the middle class is economically stupid, socially dangerous and morally wrong. The fact is that today’s corporate and political leaders are wretchedly bad gardeners — by tending to the moneyed few and ignoring America’s workaday majority, they’re watering the weeds and pulling the flowers. Where’s that going to lead us? Don’t look now, but according to a slew of corporate executives, government policy-makers and media cheerleaders, our future is on Mars. Not that we have to move there, but
we’re told we can see the future in NASA’s lovable Mars rover, named “Curiosity.” It’s presently scooting around the red planet with humanlike dexterity and abilities. Meanwhile, back on Earth, a Philips Electronics plant in the Netherlands has 128 Curiosity-styled robots making electric shavers. They are doing the same work that it takes 10 times that many humans to. As an Aug. 19 New York Times article marveled, the arms of these techno-creatures “work with yogalike flexibility ... well beyond the capability of the most dexterous human.” Plus, exclaimed the Times, “they do it all without a coffee break — three shifts a day, 365 days a year.” Corporations have hundreds of fully robotized manufacturing plants already in operation or planned, employing robots that are far more sophisticated than the ones pioneered by the auto industry. The manager of the Philips factory says, “(With these robots,) we can make any consumer device in the world.” Indeed, Apple’s iPhone-maker in China plans to install more than a million robots to displace untold numbers of workers there. Likewise, robots are now assembling Boeing’s wide-body jets, packing California lettuce in shipping boxes, making Hyundai and Tesla cars, and operating our nation’s largest grocery warehouse. The Times says flatly: “This is the future.” Oh? So, what are millions of displaced human workers to do? No one knows. Worse, there’s no planning for or even thinking about planning for the human future. Instead, we’re getting balderdash and BS from such high-tech camp followers as Times columnist Tom Friedman, who recently gushed about the robot revolution: “This is the march of progress.” Embrace the robot economy, we’re told, for it will “make America more competitive.” “More competitive” for whom and to what end? Too often, we’ve seen the power elites wave the flag of “progress” as they march right over the well-being of the many — and here they come again. Millions of unwitting working families are about to be displaced by this autocratic and avaricious rush for robotic profits. Now is the time to start a national debate on the true cost of this shift — and to demand that we humans be factored into their “revolution.” (Jim Hightower has been called American’s most popular populist. The radio commentator and former Texas Commissioner of Agriculture is author of seven books, including “There’s Nothing In the Middle of Road but Yellow Stripes and Dead Armadillos” and his new work, “Swim Against the Current: Even Dead Fish Can Go With The Flow”.)
LETTERS Probable that 7 of 10 I-L football players aren’t math proficient To the editor, Recently my grand-daughter played on the new field at Inter-Lakes High School, in Meredith. It is impressive — the best that money can buy! What is this extravagance all about? Looking up the math scores for that school, again — as in Laconia, I find dismal, unexplainable low percentile grades in math. Proficiency in math is 30-percent. Is is probable that seven out of 10 football players that use the field cannot pass math. Shouldn’t the people of Meredith be more concerned about grades, then how well the team does, on a playing field that cost a small fortune to build? It is this inconsistency that puzzles me! It is alarming evidence that parents and the public in general, consider games to be the premiere event in the school year, with little regard for the failure of the school to educate? Folks, we’re on a slippery slope that portends serious consequences for our children because of our banal, casual attitude about the importance of learning; and giving our children the impression that the game trumps
any, and all classroom achievements: And the school is at fault for this gross deception! There are thousands of unfulfilled jobs available, but few applicants are qualified. They lack the essential skills necessary because they are simply under-educated! Kids come out of high school unable to do simple math problems, to spell, or write intelligently. And if there isn’t any intervening by educators, they’re headed for a life of struggle and financial stress. All this will happen, because of our ill-structured priorities putting games on the field ahead of lifestrengthening academic skills. Games have no consequences — education has life-long consequences! Demand that schools educate successfully, or get out of the business entirely. As I see it, the State of New Hampshire has failed its own mandate to educate. Perhaps, it’s time for outside contractors to own and regulate the school system. Food for thought! Leon R. Albushies Gilford
In Bill Grimm, we couldn’t have better candidate for Senate 7 To the editor, I do not understand Neil Young’s claim that Bill Grimm is a Franklin only candidate for Senate District 7 (Andover, Belmont, Boscawen, Canterbury, Franklin, Gilford, Laconia, Northfield, Salisbury, and Webster). Bill would be a wonderful senator for all of these towns. I also do not understand why Bill’s opponent (Josh Youssef) sent a surrogate to a Republican Party event to debate Bill Grimm for him. This is a very important election. I urge Republicans to not waste their vote on a candidate (Youssef) who is not electable in the November general election. Bill Grimm is an outstanding candidate. He grew up in New Hampshire and graduated from the United
States Naval Academy at Annapolis. He served as a distinguished Naval officer. His son has done the same. Bill is an expert in education — he started a charter school. He is well-versed in health care reform, having served on the LRGHealthcare Board of Trustees and Quality Assurance committee for a decade. He understands the burden of health care costs on small businesses and the access to care issues facing all patients. If you work at a hospital or go to one as a patient, Bill understands health care financing and quality care. I have known Bill for 20 years. Senate District 7 could not have a better candidate.

Gilmanton has over funded schools by $996k over last 2 years To the editor, At the Gilmanton School Board Meeting on August 14, 2012 there was discussion about the projected fund balance remaining after all expenses for the 2011-2012 school year have been adjusted. That amount is cur-
somewhat. Last year’s fund balance was $521, 000 for a two- year total of $996,000 that the taxpayers of our town have provided to the School District in excess of their needs. Joanne Gianni Gilmanton Iron Works

LETTERS Just look at his record, Obama is the great American divider To the editor, There is no more bold faced lair who has ever held the office of president than Barack Obama. The 2008 promise was he would unite us all. After four Obama years, America now finds itself more polarized, divisive and divided than at anytime in history. Obama did not make even a half hearted attempt to bring this country together. It was all election fantasy, rhetoric. He has spent four years doing all possible to pit one interest of America against another. Given his huge economic policy failures, Obama soon recognized that was the only course possible. There was no doubt of the path after the wholesale slaughter of Democrats in the 2010 election, from coast to coast. Obama has hoodwinked America and spit in it’s eye with elegant, rhetorical arrogance. Review the Obama DIVIDE AMERICA agenda: 1. He pitted union interests against non-union interests by unleashing the junk yard dogs at the National Labor relations board loose. The Boeing case stands out. Obama does not want any business to expand where it wants to even if it means that business becomes less successful against its competitors. 2. He pitted governments best interest against the best interests of every businessman in America. Obama wants central government Gestapo control and command. Not freedom of choice and competition to bring down price and improve quality. Illustrate just one example where government has ever done anything cost effectively, efficiently or with out going broke! YOU CAN’T. There is no example. JUST HOLLOW, BANKRUPT PROMISES. 3. He has pitted the white working class people of America against everyone else, especially minorities. This election will see 60-percent of the white working class of America vote for Mitt Romney. The NON-UNION white working class will vote for Romney approaching 70-percent. WHY? It has ZERO to do with the color of Barack
Obama’s skin. White working class voters left the Democratic Party long before Obama hit the White house. White working class (middle America) figured out a long time back that the policies of the Democratic Party hurt their best chances for individual success, independence and prosperity. It is that simple. Democrats stonewall success in every way possible, most especially with higher taxation because Democrats SPEND unendingly) and aggressive regulation that equates to CENTRAL COMMAND. Not enough, they marginalize, then demean — “YOU DIDN’T BUILD THAT”. That success isn’t yours. That is why the white working class votes OVERWHELMINGLY Republican. They refuse to be hoarded like obedient LET DEMOCRATS THINK FOR YOU sheep. The Democratic Party produces only ONE THING, DONKEY DEPENDENTS sucking on government NIPPLES that they then can CONTROL. 4. The PROMISED UNIFIER now pits the women against the men. It is the latest Obama inspired DIVISION of the country. Why? because women are softies for Obama. Obama senses they are much more open to accepting his massive economic incompetence than men, so he is trying to play them like a violin. Obama knows the polls as well as I do. Men of all ethnicities are going to vote by majority for Republicans and Romney by 55-percent or more. He has to make up those millions of male Romney votes with women. It is simple math so he PANDERING to them. White men will vote for Romney by 65-percent. The number jumps to near 75-percent for white men over age 50. So Obama’s BEST INTEREST is to pit the women against the men and the Republican Party. I say the women are smart enough to see through this obvious political charade, playing them like a one night stand for that special favor, THEIR VOTE. Tony Boutin Gilford
Make your choice, it’s either God’s way or stupid man’s way To the editor, Paul Blake is right when he said, “We need Christian people filled with the Holy-Ghost to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ that not only saves us from all our sings, but can turn our nation to serve the living God.” James Veverka can live in a dream world if he wishes, but 75-percent of Americans believe in God, and our saviour Jesus Christ. My dollar proves that, it proclaims ‘In God we Trust’. Now James, we are not right wing, or left wing, we don’t follow James Madison or Thomas Jefferson, we follow Jesus Christ. Period. When I came to American in 1972 from a land of hunger and pain, I saw the state of Liberty in New York standing for liberty and freedom and I thanked God for America. But a nation or government that says, “We don’t want God,” is in big trouble. Period. America is in a mess period
and “no” man can fix our mess. Unless we repent as a nation and turn to God. God says, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord and the people whom he has chosen for his own inheritance (Psalm 33:12). People make your choice, it’s either God’s way, or stupid man’s way. The Christian’s Statue of Liberty is not the Lady of Liberty in New York, but its the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ who died for mankind and set us free indeed. James, we are always praying for you and pray changes things, “He will” change your heart also, I will end by saying, “Stand fast therefore in the Liberty where with Christ has made us free and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage (Gal 5:1) God Bless the U.S.A.

Your journey to living pain-free!
To the editor, Are you better off now than in 2008? This is an individual question that will vary from person to person. However, I would like you to consider the following facts: — In January 2008, the private sector was losing hundreds of thousands of jobs per month. — The stock market was headed below 7000. — Banks and large insurance companies were on the verge of bankruptcy. — We were fighting two wars. — The value of property was dropping at an alarming rate and we were in the greatest economic down turn since the Great Depression. As we begin September 2012 consider these facts: — The private sector has gained jobs for more than 25 consecutive months. — The stock market is above 13,000.

Act, which helps protect victims of home violence has received increased funding during this administration. There have also been more opportunities for women and girls to pursue careers in science, math, technology and engineering careers since President Obama took office. President Obama has tripled the number of women on the Supreme Court by adding two women to the bench. In May of 2012, under President Obama’s leadership, The Group of 8 (G-8) and NATO added women’s rights to its agendas. During the G-20 Summit, our president introduced the need for involving more women in peace and security issues, especially those countries in political transition. In addition to all of these things, President Obama challenged the United Nations General Assembly to work on helping break down economic and political barriers for woman and girls. I, like Betty White, am proud of how President Obama represents us and works for improved conditions both at home and abroad. I don’t want to return to a 50s approach to women’s issues. Let’s keep this president in office another four years so that he can continue to champion these important rights. Virginia Keysar Gilford
— Banks and large insurance companies are stable and regulations are in place to protect us from their greed. — The Iraq war is officially over. — The value of property has stabilized and we are recovering. I am better off than in 2008 and I am glad that Social Security, Medicare and the Affordable Care Act are in place. There is no question that I wish we were at full employment and I know that some people are still struggling in these economic times. I really believe that we are going in the right direction. We should not gamble away the safety nets with a major change in government right now. The richest Americans do not need another tax break. They have trillions of dollars in foreign banks as I write this letter. Paul Bonneville Lochmere (Tilton)
Republican convention reminded me why I volunteer for Obama
Wednesday, September 19, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.
Free refreshments will be served. Space is limited.
To the editor, Betty White, who admits to voting a Republican ticket most of her life, said publicly this year that she endorses President Obama because she likes how he represents us abroad. Women in this country are still trying to get consistently good medical attention, keep the right to decide that is best for their own bodies in terms of reproductive issues, and to earn equal pay for the same work as men. Women in the United States, and even women in other parts of the world, have found a strong advocate for equality and justice in President Obama. He has instituted may important civil rights for women during this first four years in office. Here are a few of those improvements: The first bill that President Obama signed into law, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, established an Equal Pay Task Fore which supports paycheck fairness in giving women more tools to fight pay discrimination. (Mitt Romney won’t say if he would have signed the bill, and Paul Ryan voted against it.) Under Obama’s watch, the first White House Council on Women and Girls that supports fair treatment in public policy matters, has been established. The Violence against Women

Women have strong advocate for equality & justice in Obama
To the editor, Last week at the Republican National Convention, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan doubled down on policies that would roll back the clock on women’s health and economic security. They have refused to stand up for paycheck fairness, vowed to take away access to health care for millions of women and would put health care decisions in the hands of their employers. Recently I attended a house party with Sandra Fluke. She spoke of issues that are important to me as a young college woman and the same issues that President Obama is standing up for. Taking in all perspectives,
I watched the RNC and it reminded me why I devote my time to President Obama’s campaign. We need a president who cares about the rights of women and cares about going forward. I should be the only one that controls how and when I get pregnant. I should earn the same salary as a man that has the same career as me. There are more dire issues that need to be focused on, then whether or not I should have access to birth control. President Obama is the only candidate who stands up for women’s right and that is why he is the only candidate for me. Tess Smith Center Barnstead

LETTERS Too many Republicans & Democrats engage in war of hatred To the editor, The first decade of 2000 brought with it a change of leadership in our nation, increased terrorism worldwide, and monetary challenges brought in part by the phenomena known as globalization. In the USA we had the contentious election of our president and a wave of nationalism fanned by the terrorist attack on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center. The Bush administration and Congress reacted by declaring a War On Terror and we had the backing of many of the world’s nations. Whether or not our war on terror was a good way to approach the problems brought on by extremists, we needed to face that fact that our world is no longer divided into the U.S. and the rest of the world — we were no longer isolated and immune to the terror that had plagued other regions of the world and our troops stationed in other regions. When the Cheney and Bush administration led us to war, they did it without asking our population to sacrifice here at home — other than loosing our women and men in uniform. In fact President Bush engineered a major tax cut and asked regular Americans to spend and go about business as usual. We did as asked, spending lots on the wars as well as building up large personal debt. It was easy. No immediate financial sacrifice needed. After the war in Afghanistan failed to produce the desired results — the death/capture of Osama Bin Laden — Cheney and Bush lead us into yet another war. This time our goal was to capture weapons of mass destruction and to change the leadership in Iraq. We were then fighting a war on two fronts, with different goals. Both wars were entered into without funding and the Republicans (with the help of Democrats) continued the tax cuts. The disaster that was to happen in 2006, with the start of the collapse of the economy, actually started in 2001 with the tax cuts and unfunded wars. We paid the immediate price in men and women lost in those wars and now we are paying the price of overspending with a stalled economy. What else could we expect? The eight years of the Bush administration led us in a downward spiral of economic depression and a loss of respect from our allies in Europe. This spiral continued throughout 2008 and 2009, but with
President Bush’s last-minute bailout plans in concert with the leadership of President Obama, our economy’s freefall slowed and has finally begun to come around. We must understand that the it took a series of mistakes in spending and tax cuts that set the freefall in motion and that the inertia of the freefall has to take a long time to stop. Just as the country gave President Bush a second term to make a difference and to bring about the changes we hoped he would bring to our wars and economy, we should give President Obama a second term to continue to bring about the changes necessary to continue to raise our country back out of the abyss. It is a shame that so many Democrats and Republicans look at politics as a war of hatred. Mitch McConnell proclaimed, on the day after President Obama’s inauguration, “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.” With this declaration it was clear that Mitch McConnell was going to make sure that he would make sure that our country’s recovery would not happen under Obama’s watch. It was (is) apparently much more important for the democrats and Obama to fail at all costs than for the country to have a chance to prosper. It is this attitude of working toward the failure of the “other” party for which we continue to pay the price of eight years of poor leadership. We watched our country’s problems begin and grow under the Republican’s watch so why would we want to have them in control again? I urge all independents, Democrats and Republicans to consider the history of the last 10 years and what the each party’s platforms espouse and then vote for moderate Republicans (if there are any) and Democrats in this fall’s election cycle. We need our leaders (regardless of party affiliate) to be reasonable thinkers who value cooperation and are willing to work toward a common good. Democrats are far from being great leaders, and they too are partly to blame for the political hatred that is so entrenched in all levels of government. I just hope that ultra liberalism, religious dogma, and ultra conservatism, will not continue to prevent our leaders from making life better for all. George D. Sutcliffe, Jr. Holderness
A local roast beef sandwich to rival those found on Mass. N. Shore To the editor, Lakeside Restaurant recently opened on Union Avenue. Finally, the best roast beef sandwich in the world, as well as delicious seafood and other favorites, are here in the Lakes Region — right in Laconia! I moved here 15 years ago from Danvers, Massachusetts and have been searching for that perfect roast beef sandwich, with very generous mounds of tender, juicy beef. You can have it with or without the great signature BBQ sauce. For some reason, this exact sandwich is only available on the North Shore in MA.
I have been reading ads about “Lakeside Famous Roast Beef” and decided to give it at try. I was ecstatic to find out the owner is from the North Shore in MA and is selling the exact famous roast beef sandwich I grew up with! Thank you for coming to the Lakes Region and thank you for offering such wonderful, delicious foods that have stood the test of time on the North Shore for over 40 years. Check them our on Union Avenue just before Friendly’s, where the Dunkin Donuts used to be. You will not be disappointed. Gay Dougherty Belmont

DEBT from page 2 ing of $16.39 trillion. Passing such legislation last year proved enormously difficult and the nation’s credit rating suffered. First, however, lawmakers will try during a postelection lame duck session to renew Bush-era tax cuts and head off a round of forced budget austerity as automatic budget cuts are scheduled in January to slam both the Pentagon and domestic programs. Those cuts were required by another failed set of budget talks last fall by a bipartisan “supercommittee.” Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, said: “This debt will not only be a liability for our kids and grandkids, but economists also tell us that it will limit economic growth and kill millions of jobs now and in the future.” Portman was a member of last year’s failed supercommittee, which deadlocked over taxes and cuts to popular benefit programs. The debt topped the $16 trillion mark on Friday. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner has said the government will likely reach its debt limit at the
end of the year. However, Geithner has said he will be able to employ various “extraordinary measures” to keep the government operating until sometime early next year. Geithner would need to use these measures if Congress, as expected, fails to tackle the debt limit by year’s end. Last year’s prolonged impasse between the GOP-dominated House and Democrats controlling the Senate and the White House contributed to a move by the ratings agency Standard & Poor’s to lower America’s AAA bond rating for the first time in the country’s history, nudging it down a notch to AA+ for long-term securities. GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney promises sharp spending cuts and a balanced budget by 2020 if he wins the White House, but has provided little detail about how that might be accomplished. For his part, Obama has declined to tackle the spiraling growth of benefit programs like Medicare and the Medicaid health program for the poor and disabled. His proposals to hike taxes on upper income earners have been repeatedly rejected by Republicans.

LACONIA — The Planning Board last night once again deferred its decision on the request of Anthony Santagate to convert the second story of the Tower Hill Tavern to a live music venue, citing concerns about noise escaping the building and the availability of sufficient parking. It has been nearly a year since Santagate first applied to install a bar, stage, dance floor and restrooms in the 4,500-square-foot space above the bar and eatery at 264-290 Lakeside Avenue. When neighboring residents and businesses expressed concern about the sound of live music the board required Santagate to fund a third party review by an acoustic engineer to determine if the level of sound leaving the building would be within acceptable limits. . Eric Reuter of Reuter Associates of Portsmouth, who undertook the review, told the board that he used estimates of the interior noise levels, based on the sound proofing proposed for the space, to calculate the level of exterior sound, assuming that the building was “air tight.” Since the sound of a live band would reach 90 decibels within the building, Reuter calculated that a live band would add between 45 and 50 decibels to the ambient sound level outside the building, which he called “reasonable for this area and this use.” However, Warren Hutchins, who chairs the board, questioned Reuter’s methodology, which drew on estimates rather than actual measurements of the sound of a live band and said “this critical issue has not been thoroughly addressed.” “45 decibels is not earth-shattering,” said Bill Contardo. “It’s not even close.” He noted that 40 decibels was the level expected from birdcalls. At the same time, Hutchins questioned Santagate’s request for a waiver of the parking requirement, noting that the ordinance required the venue to have 45 spaces. Gerry Mailloux reminded the board that it had frequently granted waivers to businesses at The Weirs and had not heard that parking has been an issue. Stressing that “45 is a lot of parking spaces,” Hutchins repeated that “my concern is the size.” Don Richards said that Santagate intended to operate year round and that while parking would not be a problem during most of the year, it would be a problem in the summer months. He said that although there is abundant parking at The Weirs, see next page

18-year-old driver of the car young Laconia woman died in is well known to Concord police BY GAIL OBER
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
CONCORD — The Weare man accused of felony negligent homicide in the early Sunday morning death of a young Laconia woman has had repeated recent contact with Concord Police. Concord Lt. Tim O’Malley said yesterday that Robert Pitts, 18, of Weare had five separate encounters with Pitts that resulted in nine criminal charges — including attempted arson and criminal threatening. He said his department notes indicated the attempted arson was in March and appeared to be a personal issue. He said Pitts allegedly used newspapers to light a fire on someone’s front lawn. “It wasn’t a serious fire but the fire department did have to respond and put it out,” said O’Malley. A clerk in Merrimack County Superior Court confirmed yesterday that Pitts was indicted by a grand jury for attempted arson in June and the tentative trial date is in February of 2013. Clerks at the Circuit Court Call Center said Pitts is also scheduled to appear in Concord District Court on September 20 for misdemeanor charges of criminal liability of another, breach of bail and theft of service — all Concord charges. Pitts was under house arrest last weekend when he allegedly took his parents’ car and met up with his girlfriend, Paige Garneau of Laconia. She was killed at 2:45 a.m. when the car Pitts was driving failed to negotiate Exit 17-E off I-93 while being followed by police from Northfield and Tilton. from preceding page much of it is on private property and businesses typically make arrangements with property owners to reserve spaces. However, he said that Santagate has yet to enter any such agreements. Returning to the noise issue, Mailloux proposed that the board order another round of sound testing then set a specific decibel level with which the venue must comply. Alternatively, he said that if Stanagate agreed, the board could set the limit at 45 to 50 decibels. When Santagate rejected the offer the board unanimously voted to require Reuter to perform more tests, at Satagate’s expense, with an eye to setting a specific decibel level as a condition of its approval of the project.

Police said the traffic speeds from Exit 19 in Northfield where he got on the highway to where he tried to leave the highway never exceeded 60 mph but Exit 17E is a nearly 360 degree curve and Pitts was driving too fast to make the turn. He struck a tree and Garneau was killed. Weare Police Chief Gregory Begin confimred yesterday Laconia Police accounts that Garneau had, without permission, taken her parents’ car on Friday from Cleveland Place in Laconia and was arrested later in the day by his department “near the Pitts’s home.” He said she was initially charged with theft by unauthorized taking, but the charges were dropped by his department and she and the car were released into the custody of her parents. Begin said the case was referred to the Laconia Police. Begin said yesterday that his department and the Laconia Police were in frequent contact with each other when Fitts’s family reported their car had been stolen. Laconia Police Capt. Matthew Canfield said yesterday that his department had been wroking with Weare Police but, though police had had contact with both of them, all of the contact with Pitts was after August 1. “Until then, we had never heard of him,” Canfield said. He declined to comment further on Garneau saying only her death was a tragedy and all of the department extends its sympathy to her family. Pitts appeared in the 6th Circuit Court, Concord District yesterday and was ordered held on $200,000 cash only bail. He is facing one count of felony negligent homicide, one felony count of failing to obey a police officer, and two counts of breach of bail. He has a probable cause hearing scheduled for September 14. SURPLUS from page one students who spent five weeks at the prestigous St. Paul School summer program in Concord.

River Project Art on display at Busiel Mill calls attention to homeless population in Laconia LACONIA — Last February, Richard Smith, who is an avid amateur photographer, and Elaine Morrison a retired special-education and integrated-arts teacher as well as an artist in her own right, began an art and photography program with the homeless in downtown Laconia. Later they coordinated with the Laconia Homeless Committee. By degrees, the couple got to know some of the dozen homeless people downtown and earned their trust. Eventually, a core group, known as the River Crew, began meeting every Monday behind the former Laconia Police Station on Church Street. Those meetings are informal. Morrison and Smith drew the crew to them with the prospect of both art and food. These homeless people, for various reasons, have very little positive things going on in their lives. Morrison and Smith changed that for one hour each Monday. The resulting art, and the sense of accomplish-
ment has had a far reaching effect on the River Crew that exceeded all expectations. For the month of September, the Busiel Mill Community Room and Gallery will display the art of some of the homeless persons who live in downtown Laconia. With assistance from the artists, the multi-media show is being coordinated by Morrison and Smith. Known as River Crew Art, the display will surprise, and in some cases, move people to tears. The talent among these people, many of whom are struggling with alcoholism, is as hidden as their sense of self-worth. This is a must see exhibit regardless of how you feel about the issue of the homeless. The gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. A reception will be held at the gallery on Friday September 7 beginning at 5 p.m. The Gallery is located in the Busiel Mill known as One Mill Plaza. Anyone having any questions or wishing to display should contact Joe Adrignola at 496-3839 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
DEMOCRATS from page 2 all of the existing Bush-era tax cuts due to expire on Dec. 31, and also want to cut tax rates 20 percent across the board. Obama, too, wants to keep the existing tax cuts in place — except for people with earnings of $250,000 a year or more. Delegates in the convention hall cheered whenever Obama’s image showed on the huge screen behind the speaker’s podium, and roared when the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy was shown mocking Romney in their 1994 Senate race. “On the issue of choice, I am pro-choice, my opponent is multiple choice,” the late senator said as cheers grew louder. Romney supported abortion rights while serving as governor; he opposes them now. Democrats unspooled insult after insult as they took their turn the week after the Republicans had their convention in Tampa, Fla. Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn said that Republicans had omitted mention of Romney’s term as Massachusetts governor at their gathering. “We already knew this extremely conservative man takes some pretty liberal deductions. Evidently
that includes writing off all four years he served as governor,” Quinn declared. Said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada, speaking of Romney: “Never in modern American history has a presidential candidate tried so hard to hide himself from the people he hopes to serve.” “When you look at the one tax return he has released, it’s obvious why there’s been only one. We learned that he pays a lower tax rate than middleclass families. We learned he chose Swiss bank accounts and Cayman Island tax shelters over American institutions.” Obama, by contrast, was lauded for helping win approval of health care legislation and for supporting abortion rights and gay marriage. “He said he’d take out bin Laden, and with our great SEAL team, he did,” added Tim Kaine, former national party chairman and Virginia governor, now running for the Senate. In his campaign trip to Virginia earlier in the day, Obama told an audience at Norfolk State University that the economy will get worse if Romney wins the White House this fall and that Election Day apathy was his enemy — and theirs.
LACONIA — A Superior Court judge has denied a man convicted of conspiracy to commit theft a new trial by ruling that there was no “new evidence” in his case and that his claim of “ineffective counsel” had no bearing on the outcome. Grady K. Cook, 50, formerly of Niagara, New York but who now lives in Manchester was convicted by a jury in Belknap County Superior Court in early 2011 of participating in an Internet fraud in which a Gilford man was bilked out of $2,000 in 2008, in part by Cook who conspired to send the money to Nigeria using a Western Union account in New York. The victim was duped by Cook after he went on to Craig’s List looking for a roommate. The person who answered his ad sent him a faulty check for three times the rental agreement and then told him to return $2,000 to her through Cook’s account so she could cover her moving expenses. The case, which took Gilford Police Det. Chris Jacques into the world of Internet fraud and, at one point, led Sgt. Eric Bredbury to the warehouse district along Lake Erie, was solved with the assistance of New York and federal authorities. Gilford Police learned Cook had criminal records in New York, Illinois, and California and had operated under a number of aliases that included drivers licenses and Social Security numbers. Cook contended the money was not part of a fraud but was money legitimately owed to him. After losing an appeal of his conviction at the Supreme Court, he petitioned the Belknap County Superior Court for a new trial. “In this case, the defendant has failed to identify any new material evidence that if admitted in a second trail would yield a different result than the original trial,” O’Neill wrote in his four page denial of Cook’s most recent request. As to his claim of ineffective counsel, O’neill ruled that according to the United States Constitution, Cook would have had to show that his public defender’s work was “constitutionally deficient” and that his “performance actually prejudiced the outcome of the case.” O’Neill determined Cook, who represented himself at his request for a new trial, did not meet that burden. — Gail Ober BULLETS from page 2 said Jonathan L. Lasher, the agency’s assistant IG for external relations. The agents carry guns and make arrests — 589 last year, Lasher said. They execute search warrants and respond to threats against Social Security offices, employees and customers. Agents carry .357 caliber pistols, Lasher said. The bullets, which add up to about 590 per agent, are for the upcoming fiscal year. Most will be expended on the firing range. Some bloggers have taken issue with the type of ammunition the agency is buying, questioning why agents need hollow-point bullets. Hollow-points are known for causing more tissue damage than other bullets when they hit a person because they expand when they enter the body. The bullets, however, are standard issue for many law enforcement agencies, Lasher said, a fact confirmed by the directors of two law enforcement training centers. “For practice ammunition, they do not have to be hollow-points, but hollow-points are the normal police round used for duty ammunition due to their ability to stop when they hit an object as opposed to going through it and striking more objects,” said William J. Muldoon, president of the International Association of Directors of Law Enforcement Standards and Training. “Six hundred rounds per year for training, qualification and I would assume to carry on duty is not out of line at all,” said John W. Worden, director of the University of Missouri’s Law Enforcement Training Institute.
Alton, Barnstead & Gilmanton Republicans to help decide primary contest between Senate candidates from Strafford Co. By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
ROCHESTER — “I saw some things going on in Concord, especially on the House side, that I did not think were in the best interests of the state,” said Dick Green of Rochester, explaining his decision to enter the race for the New Hampshire Senate in District 6 where he is vying with one of those House members, Sam Cataldo of Farmington, for the Republican nomination in the upcoming primary election. District 6 consists of Rochester, which accounts for half of the electorate, and five townships, three in Belknap County — Alton, Barnstead and Gilmanton — and two in Strafford County — Farmington and New Durham. Of the two candidates, Green is easily the best known. He served on the Rochester School Board and the Rochester City Council, spending 10 of his 14 years on the council as mayor, when he was tapped by U.S. News and World Report as one of the 20 best mayors in the country. He has been elected to the Senate three times, in 1973, 2002 and 2004. And he worked as director of the Division of Economic Development at the New Hampshire Department of Resources and Economic Development from 1990 to 1994 and as executive director of the Pease Development Authority between 2008 and 2010. An Air Force veteran, Cataldo worked in research and development for the Avco Corporation, owned and operated a restaurant, became a nuclear contractor and is a self-employed computer consultant. He was first elected to the New Hampshire House of Representatives in 2002 and served two terms before losing his seat in 2006 only to reclaim it in 2010. He is the clerk of the House Science, Technology and Energy Committee. In 1955, when the two were in high school, Cataldo at Central Catholic in Lawrence, Mass. and Green at Spaulding High School in Rochester, they met on the gridiron where Green confessed that he and his teammates spent much of the scrimmage chasing Cataldo. “He was much faster than me in those days,” Green told Foster’s Daily Democrat. “Not today, though.” While Green draws from a broad base of supporters mustered during a long career in city and state government, Cataldo’s candidacy takes much of its momentum from the Rochester 912 Project, a group of strict constitutionalists with a libertarian bent inspired by Glenn Beck, which is closely associated with the Tea Party. The breadth of their support is reflected in their financial statements, which record that Green has raised $21,950, spent $3,342 and has $18,607 in hand while Cataldo has collected $1,288, spent $3,132 and is $1,844 in the red. Paying homage to Ronald Reagan’s 11th commandment not to speak ill of fellow Republicans, Cataldo said “i can’t knock Dick, it’s just not me,” but then noted that Green twice endorsed Democrat John Lynch for governor, first over incumbent Republican Craig Benson in 2002 and again over Republican nominee John Stephen in 2010. Moreover, he recalled that in 2006 Green resigned from the Senate before completing his term to accept Lynch’s offer of the position at the Pease Development Authority. CITY OF LACONIA Notice of Public Hearing According to Article V of the Laconia City Charter and other applicable State laws, the City Council will hold a Public Hearing on September 10, 2012 during the regular Council Meeting which begins at 7:00 p.m. in City Council Chambers, Room 200A regarding: Changing Rates for Residents on City Sewer System Without City Water Services (“Sewer Only”) Mary A. Reynolds City Clerk
Cataldo described himself as the “true Republican” in the race.”I’m going to go with the platform.” The House Republican Alliance, which rates representatives according to their adherence to the party platform, graded Cataldo at 83-percent. Cataldo said he had no truck with Democrats while Green said “once the election is over, its over and you get on with governing by working with both parties.” “I’ve been a Republican for more than 50 years,” said Green, adding that most of Cataldo’s closest allies “have only become Republicans recently. They’re Free Staters who believe not in limited government, but in no government.” Nor did he disguise his differences with Benson and Stephen, which were widely reported at the time. “I’m a Republican but I’ve not been a partisan,” he said. “When you see things that are wrong you can either say nothing and hope it works out or say something you believe is in the best interest of the people and the state and do what is right. And I’m not saying I’m always right.” The two differ on abortion and guns. A devout Roman Catholic, Cataldo is staunchly pro-life, with the life of the mother the lone exception, while Green would broaden the exception to rape, incest and the health of the mother.” Cataldo, who sometimes carries a sidearm in the Statehouse, considers gun laws infringements on the 2nd Amendment while Green accepts some limits. “it can’t be just anything goes,” he said, finding guns on college campuses and in the Statehouse “ridiculous.” Both oppose broad-based taxes, favor “Right-to-Work” legislation, prefer civil unions to gay marriage, and endorse expanded gambling with qualifications. Both also support amending the Constitution to address the funding of public education. But, Green, who does not believe the state should “downshift” costs to cities and towns, insists that “the word responsible has got to be there” to ensure that the state contributes a reasonable share while Cataldo, following the House leadership, backed an amendment lacking any such assurance. A former chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, Green’s priorities are managing the state budget and promoting economic growth. He criticized the decision of the Legislature to cut the university system budget by $48-million, stressing the importance of a educated workforce, and dismissed the reduction of the cigarette tax as “all for show.” Green cautioned that the next Legislature would be tested by the provision of the Affordable Care Act allowing, not requiring, states to expand the Medicaid program. “With me this is a financial question, not a philosophical issue,” he said. “It could have a dramatic impact on our budget, “ he continued. “The feds would pay 90-percent, but we have to ask do we really want to get ourselves committed to that.” He also acknowledged that litigation over the administration of the Medicaid program and the sufficiency of services to the developmentally disabled could present severe fiscal challenges. Last week Green earned the endorsement of Foster’s Daily Democrat in Dover, which called him “clearly the more qualified of the two” and remarked “(an interview with) Cataldo left us scratching our heads and frustrated.” TOWN OF GILMANTON REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL
The Town of Gilmanton is seeking proposals for the touch up, scraping, priming and painting of the street (front) and parking lot (back) sides of the Old Town Hall at 1800 NH Route 140, Gilmanton Iron Works, NH. Painting is to be completed by October31, 2012.

Canterbury woman badly hurt in ATV accident in Northfield CONCORD — A 51-year-old woman was seriously injured in an All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) rollover in Northfield Monday night, according to N.H. Fish & Game. The incident occurred about 6:40 p.m. Liane Hoyt of Canterbury was operating an ATV on a snowmobile trail in Northfield when the machine rolled over on top of her, causing serious injuries. She was riding with a group, but none of the other riders saw the accident happen. When her companions reached her and got the machine off her, she was unconscious. They called 911 for assistance. Hoyt had not been wearing a helmet.
Tilton/Northfield Fire and Rescue personnel responded to the scene with an ambulance, along with Northfield Police and a Fish and Game conservation officer. Hoyt was transported to Concord Hospital, then airlifted by DHART helicopter to the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon. “This serious incident underscores the importance of wearing a helmet when operating an ATV or snow machine,” said Fish and Game Conservation Officer Brad Morse. The incident remains under investigation by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department.

LACONIA — Laconia and Gilford fire units were dispatched to a reported building fire in the area of 279 Elm Street at 2:58 a.m. on Tuesday morning to deal with what turned out to be a small shed fire. Upon arrival, Laconia at 3:04 a.m., Chief Ken Erickson reported, Lt. Vaillancourt reported an outside storage building well-involved but canceled the Weirs and Gilford units as he could handle the fire
with the downtown station crew. Erickson said the fire had consumed an outdoor storage unit, which housed a pool filter and numerous other items. The fire actually caused the pool to collapse as the radiant heat weakens the pool supports. There were no injuries. Erickson said the fire turned out to actually be at 74 Elm Street.
SCHOOLS from page one Vollmer’s book argues that the nation’s schools have a systems problem, not a people problem. and that the system must be changed in order to get the graduates the nation needs. He maintains that the system cannot be changed without touching the culture of the surrounding community, because everything that goes on inside a school is tied to local attitudes, values, traditions, and beliefs and that only when education is viewed as a shared, community-wide responsibility that the necessary changes be made. Board member Scott Vachon said that the extensive list of non-academic responsibilities placed on public schools, ranging from personal health to consumer education, ‘’Puts into perspective what schools are like today. They are so far removed from when I went to school and even more so from when my parents went to school. We need a broad conversation about our schools and how they have become a social network for developing tomorrow’s adults.’’ Board member Mal Murray said he would like to see the videos made available to PTOs and other organizations throughout the city. ‘’It needs to be shown around the city ,’’ and was joined in that support by fellow board member Joe Cormier, who said that for many people it would highlight how difficult a job teaching can be. ‘’Each student offers a unique challenge for every teacher in every classroom and that’s something we shouldn’t lose sight of,’’ said Cormier. Superintendent of Schools Bob Champlin said that teaching critical thinking skills is an absolute necessity for today’s students, noting that a 1967
study showed those skills were important for only one out of 10 jobs but are now needed for nine out of 10 jobs. Champlin first brought the issues outlined in Vollmer’s book to the attention of board members at their last meeting and said that it would be a major focus of the school administration over the next year. The next video the board will see, ‘’The Blueberry Story’’ will describe Vollmer’s visit to a public school when he was head of Midwestern Ice Cream Company in the 1980s and how he lectured teachers on the ways they could improve public education by following a business model, ideas which Vollmer now says were ‘’ignorant and arrogant.’’. Champlin says that the Laconia School District has in recent years been able to form many community partnerships as Vollmer has recommended and that he hopes the continued conversation will help create many more. School Board Chairman Bob Dassatti said that the School District has many community partners and that one of them, Larry Poliquin, manager of the Hannaford supermarket in Gilford, was honored earlier in the meeting for his support of the Laconia Wellness Academy initiative. The supermarket contributed bottled water and fresh fruit for both the Bob Dearborn 3-on-3 basketball tournament held during the summer at Wyatt Park and for a Wellness Academy event held at Opechee Park prior to the start of the school year, Poliquin told the board that Hannaford’s is eager to be a part of community activities, particularly in the area of healthy foods and promoting an active lifestyle.

Get out the high vote; stoner voters targeted in Dutch election campaign as ‘cafe’ culture is at risk THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — With slogans like “Don’t let your vote go up in smoke!”, owners of the freewheeling cafes where bags of hashish are sold alongside cups of coffee are mounting a get-out-the-stoner-vote campaign ahead of next week’s Dutch election. The campaigners are calling on their sometimes apathetic dope smoking clientele to get out and support political parties that oppose the recently introduced “weed pass” that is intended to rein in the cafes known as coffee shops and close them altogether to foreign tourists. At a coffee shop in The Hague, a member of staff selling weed wears a T-shirt emblazoned with a modified Uncle Sam style poster calling on smokers to “Vote against the weed pass on Sept. 12.” Under the new system, coffee shops become member-only clubs and only Dutch residents can apply for a pass to get in. The cafes are limited to a maximum of 2,000 members. The online vote2smoke.nl campaign offers canna-
bis and marijuana users voting advice by showing which political parties support dumping the “weed pass,” which came into force in the southern Netherlands earlier this year and is intended to roll out over the whole country in coming years. Joep Oomen of the legalize cannabis movement says it is hard to know exactly how big the pot-smoking constituency is, but he estimates it at around half a million people in this nation of 16 million. Basically the advice to them boils down to this: Voting for any political party on the left is good, and any party on the right is bad. One champion of the smokers’ lobby is Socialist Party leader Emile Roemer, a jovial 50-year-old former teacher whose party is expected to make significant gains at the Sept. 12 election. Speaking at a campaign event this weekend, Roemer called the weed pass “incredibly stupid” and vowed to scrap it if he wins power.
TRUCKS from page 2 size trucks, notched double-digit gains in overall sales last month. In pickups, Ford’s F-Series, the top-selling vehicle in America, saw a 19 percent sales increase, as did Chrysler’s Ram pickup. Sales of General Motors’ Chevy Silverado rose 4 percent, while the GMC Sierra was up 9 percent. Toyota’s struggling big truck, the Tundra, posted a huge increase of 68 percent. The rising demand helped push total U.S. auto sales last month to an annual rate of 14.5 million. That’s the best monthly sales pace since the government’s “Cash for Clunkers” rebate program in August of 2009. Pent-up demand is one reason for last month’s truck increase. The average vehicle on U.S. roads is nearing 11 years old, and some are simply wearing out. But automakers and industry analysts say the economic recovery — new housing in particular — is
starting to make buyers feel more comfortable about a big-ticket purchase. There’s a direct correlation between the housing market and pickup sales, they say. When people who work in housing or other construction are more confident, they tend to invest in equipment. Some may be adding crews and need vehicles to get them to and from job sites. Truck sales fell dramatically in 2008 and 2009 as gas prices spiked and the housing industry collapsed. Since then, they’ve never fully recovered. Gas mileage also is playing a role in the pickup increase. Newer models are lighter than older ones and can be equipped with small but powerful V-6 engines. A business owner can cut costs dramatically by replacing a 10-year-old pickup, said Jeff Schuster, senior vice president of forecasting for LMC Automotive, an industry consulting firm.
BELMONT from page one Department of Transportation but the town would still have to pay a $5,000 bridge construction fee to the state. Selectboard Chair Jon Pike also said he was dismayed to hear that state officials want the town to consider 100-year flood statistics. “We have a culvert that’s 9-feet width and 11-feet high,” he said. “We’ve got a big enough hole in the ground.” Town Administrator Jeanne Beaudin said the engineering would cost the town about $14,000 and that would include the $5,000 fee to the state. She also said the engineer told her the town would have to go through the entire Department of Environmental Services permitting process although she said she was optimistic they would expedite Belmont’s permitting because the bridge is closed. Selectmen also said they were unhappy to learn the bridge had to be closed when the DOT performed a bridge inspection in March of 2012 and said that,
while it needed repairs at some point, it was safe and didn’t need to be posted for weight restrictions. Beaudin said that when to town learned last year that the bridge was going to need repairs the town applied immediately to the state Bridge Repair Fund and were told they were on the list for 2020. “We hope to get the bridge open by Thanksgiving,” she said, noting that if that bridge remains closed through the winter it would create a snowplowing “nightmare.” Public Works Director Jim Fortin said the preliminary plan was to use concrete to reinforce the bottom of the culvert and to build concrete cutoff walls to stop the water from going outside of the culvert. The town may also need to build a stone weir to allow fish to swim up river and the engineer is working with the N.H. Fish and Game to discuss it. Beaudin said the Belmont Conservation Commission will discuss the bridge at its meeting tonight at 6 p.m. in the Corner Meeting House.

Laconia Professional Firefighters team up to support WOW Trail at WOW Fest 2012 LACONIA — Laconia Fire Department Lieutenant Chad Vaillancourt is a big fan of the WOW Trail and recently had the idea of walking the WOW Trail in full bunker gear and self-contained breathing apparatus, over 60 pounds, as part of the WOW Trail’s upcoming fundraising event called WOW Fest ‘12. The idea seemed to catch on at the station, and the Local 1153 is now fielding a team for the 3 mile “Fun” walk at WOW Fest ‘12 on September 22 at the Laconia Athletic & Swim Club. “The Laconia Professional Firefighters, Local 1153, is excited to participate in WOW Fest ‘12 and we are challenging other businesses and organizations to get their teams together and come out, get active and support the WOW Trail” said Lt. Vaillancourt. “We are going to use this as an opportunity for training, conditioning and teamwork all while raising money for the trail. We’re inviting the public to rally behind our effort and contribute to our team” explains Lt. Vaillancourt. “Donations can be made to the WOW Trail and dropped off at the Laconia Fire Station on North Main St. or people can pay by credit card by going to www.wowtrail.org.” WOW Fest ‘12, held on Saturday, September 22,
features 5K and 10K road races, 15 mile and 67 mile bicycle challenges and a 3 mile fun walk. All events start and finish at the Laconia Athletic & Swim Club on North Main Street followed by a festival with BBQ luncheon, live music and many fun-filled kids and family activities. The WOW Trail is a multi-use trail connecting Lakeport and downtown Laconia. Currently a 1.3 mile trail, the WOW Trail committee is beginning the engineering design and fundraising for Phase 2 of the trail which will double the length and continue the trail from downtown Laconia to the Belmont town line. A recent WOW Trail user count estimates that over 40,000 trips will be taken this year on the existing section of the trail. An Economic Impact study, directed by the Belknap County Economic Development Council, estimated that a completed WOW Trail would have over 150,000 users per year, approximately 38,000 visitors from outside the area generating almost $2 million in new visitor spending creating 31 new jobs. For more information about the WOW Trail or WOW Fest ‘12, go to www.wowtrail.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

GILFORD — Gilford’s Thompson-Ames Historical Society and the Laconia Historical & Museum Society will hear a presentation by Maggie Stier “The Old Man of the Mountain: Substance and Symbol” on Monday, September 10, 7 p.m. at the Union Meetinghouse, 24 Belknap Mountain Rd., Gilford. Stier says the story of the Old Man of the Mountain is a story of New Hampshire itself, reflecting the state’s history, arts, literature, geography, philosophy and even public policy. As the multi-faceted story of this icon enfolds, the audience will be challenged to think about the different and evolving ways that this image has touched the public imagination over its 200 year history. This engaging presentation by Stier, who holds an undergraduate degree in American Studies and graduate degrees in New England Studies and Education, includes images of paintings, literary passages, souvenirs, and film clips of interviews with those closest to the Old Man. The presentation will conclude with a discussion of current efforts to memorialize the state symbol. The public is encouraged to bring along Old Man memorabilia from their private collection to share with the audience. The program is made possible with the support of New Hampshire Humanities Council, the Samuel P. Pardoe Foundation and the members of ThompsonAmes Historical Society. The Thompson-Ames Historical Society is dedicated to preserving the farming and cultural heritage of Gilford and welcomes new members. Those interested in becoming involved can visit the website email@example.com or call 527-9009.

It is imperative to share and learn these traditions so they continue to be valued,” said Chief Wolf Spirit, Gary Dumas, from Bristol. “Because respect is the foundation of the Native American way, any one of any age can benefit from learning the culture and history of the Native
American,” said Dumas. Two-time Native American Music Award winners, Owl & Dove, will delight the crowd Saturday evening at 8 p.m., during a special concert. Other features of the pow wow will be a Native Grand Entrance, Saturday and Sunday, at noon, daily Native music, regalia, crafts, and food.

by Paul Gilligan
by Darby Conley
By Holiday Mathis You’ve done your homework, but you wouldn’t mind a second opinion. Be careful to ask for insight in a way that lets the other person know that you don’t want to be micromanaged, but you value an objective viewpoint. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You want to give. But if you don’t take care of yourself first, you’ll get into trouble. You’ll be as generous as you can possibly be while still maintaining enough of your own time and resources to get your work done. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have a way of making people feel safe. New people will be attracted to you as you demonstrate your strength. It comes in many forms: intellectual, physical and emotional. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Enforce clear lines between your work and your personal life. Increased structure will be good for all. By your example, others will understand that the workplace is for work -- and not for personal sharing. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If you want to be a leader, assume leadership. It won’t be necessary to ask for it, and doing so will only cause hesitation and doubt. Swoop in and start taking care of business. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 5). You are more convicted in your beliefs than ever and determined to make a difference. The next seven weeks clear the obstacles to deeper love. You’ll pick up a new skill in October. You’ll have plenty to show off in November, but you’ll refrain from doing so. You’ll volunteer for an important mission in December. Leo and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 25, 49, 14 and 18.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your extra energy will kick in midmorning, and you’ll keep moving quickly through the day. There are things you shouldn’t do fast, though. Talking is one of them. You’ll get more respect using your calm, slow voice. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll choose upbeat partners. They may have the wrong answers from time to time, but because they have the right attitude, they will be quick to make corrections. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The deep part of your brain that contains a storytelling instinct will be activated now. You’ll be driven to share, and in this sharing, you’ll hone the finer details of your narrative. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Resist checking in with others to see whether you’re on the right path. Try instead to think it through and feel it out. When you’re sure within yourself, it’s the right path. Certainty will open doors. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Someone will try to form an alliance with you. You’re not about to join a cause you don’t believe in. Also, you just don’t like it when people try to pick a fight for you. If you want to fight, you’ll pick your own. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your status is on the line today. How you come across will be more important than what you say. Speak as though you’re making complete sense even when you’re not sure it’s really the case. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Everything aligns to remind you that people are important -- more important than things, position, power or money. When you make the choice that supports people, you choose your own soul. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Wednesday, Sept. 5, the 249th day of 2012. There are 117 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 5, 1972, terrorism struck the Munich Olympics as members of the Palestinian group Black September attacked the Israeli delegation; 11 Israelis, five guerrillas and a police officer were killed in the resulting siege. On this date: In 1774, the first Continental Congress assembled in Philadelphia. In 1793, the Reign of Terror began during the French Revolution as the National Convention instituted harsh measures to repress counterrevolutionary activities. In 1836, Sam Houston was elected president of the Republic of Texas. In 1912, American avant-garde composer John Cage was born in Los Angeles. In 1914, the First Battle of the Marne, resulting in a French-British victory over Germany, began during World War I. In 1939, four days after war had broken out in Europe, President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued a proclamation declaring U.S. neutrality in the conflict. In 1945, Japanese-American Iva Toguri D’Aquino, suspected of being wartime broadcaster “Tokyo Rose,” was arrested in Yokohama. (D’Aquino was later convicted of treason and served six years in prison; she was pardoned in 1977 by President Gerald R. Ford.) In 1957, the novel “On the Road,” by Jack Kerouac, was first published by Viking Press. In 1961, President John F. Kennedy signed legislation making aircraft hijackings a federal crime. In 1986, four hijackers who had seized a Pan Am jumbo jet on the ground in Karachi, Pakistan, opened fire when the lights inside the plane failed; a total of 22 people were killed in the hijacking. In 1997, Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II broke the royal reticence over Princess Diana’s death, delivering a televised address in which she called her former daughter-in-law “a remarkable person.” Mother Teresa died in Calcutta, India, at age 87; conductor Sir Georg Solti died in France at age 84. One year ago: President Barack Obama used a boisterous Labor Day rally in Detroit to put congressional Republicans on the spot, challenging them to place the country’s interests above all else and vote to create jobs and put the economy back on a path toward growth. Today’s Birthdays: Comedian-actor Bob Newhart is 83. Actress-singer Carol Lawrence is 80. Actor William Devane is 73. Actor George Lazenby is 73. Actress Raquel Welch is 72. Movie director Werner Herzog is 70. Singer Al Stewart is 67. Actor-director Dennis Dugan is 66. College Football Hall of Famer Jerry LeVias is 66. Singer Loudon Wainwright III is 66. “Cathy” cartoonist Cathy Guisewite is 62. Actor Michael Keaton is 61. Country musician Jamie Oldaker is 61. Actress Debbie Turner-Larson is 56. Actress Kristian Alfonso is 49. Rhythm-and-blues singer Terry Ellis is 49. Rock musician Brad Wilk is 44. TV personality Dweezil Zappa is 43. Actress Rose McGowan is 39. Actor Andrew Ducote is 26. Actress Kat Graham is 26. Olympic gold medal figure skater Kim Yu-na is 22.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, September 5, 2012— Page 21
Dear Annie: Six months ago, I married a lovely young woman. While we were engaged, “Nina” and I had several candid discussions about finances, figuring that once we married, she would look for a job and we would split the household expenses evenly. Her parents were very generous and gave us a nice amount of money at the wedding in order to help smooth the transition until she found a job. Well, a few months after we married, Nina stopped looking for work. She suffers from chronic depression, and it got so bad that she refused to apply for a job, convinced that no one would hire her. She also refused to get counseling, saying she couldn’t afford it, even though both her father and I offered to pay for it. I have worked my best to keep a roof over our heads and have even taken out loans in order to pay our bills, but I’m now $1,000 in debt. Recently, Nina’s father gave her a large sum of money. I asked if she would use a small amount to pay one of our outstanding bills. She refused, saying that this was her money and she could spend it on whatever she wanted. Over the next week, that turned out to be fast food and cigarettes. Annie, was I unreasonable to ask for her financial help? -New York Dear New York: Of course not. Nina apparently does not consider herself to be in a partnership. She thinks you should support her. And it’s possible that Nina combats her depression by spending money, eating and smoking. Nonetheless, this is not a tenable solution. She should not use her depression as an excuse to refuse help. We urge you to get counseling on your own and also contact NAMI (nami.org). Dear Annie: I am pregnant with my third child. Prior experience compels me to send my list of things you should never do or say to a pregnant woman:
1. Do not ask whether the pregnancy was planned. It is absolutely no one’s business. 2. Hands off the belly. This is her personal space and should be respected. If you feel compelled to touch that elusive kick, always ask first -- and don’t be insulted when she says no. 3. Please don’t make comments that could be interpreted as “you’re fat.” My boss asked whether I was having twins because I was so big. Another person asked if I was due before Christmas when my due date was mid-March. 4. Please don’t share unsolicited horror stories of labor and delivery. Expectant moms don’t need more to worry about. Also, while I feel genuine sympathy for those who have experienced a miscarriage, hearing these stories only induces anxiety in the mom-to-be, which isn’t good for her health or the baby’s. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to vent. -- Sharing the News in Pa. Dear Sharing: You’re very welcome. And congratulations on your upcoming blessed event. Dear Annie: This is in reply to “Over-Seventy-Attitude,” who prefers handwritten notes and not emails. Years ago, when postage was cheap, none of us thought anything of sending out lots of cards and greetings. These days, with postage being so high, people have to understand that if you’re living on a fixed income, those costs add up, especially during holidays when there are lots of cards to send. I feel that the message contained within is what’s important, not whether the card is a physical object or an email. Making sure that your friends and family receive your warm thoughts is what counts. Instead of chastising your friend for sending an email greeting, thank her for thinking of you and holding a place in her heart for you. -- Florida Greetings

IBEX Puppetry comes to Squam Lakes Natural Science Center Saturday
HOLDERNESS — IBEX Puppetry is coming to New Hampshire for their only New England show this fall. Squam Lakes Natural Science Center will host Festival of Flight, which is all about the wonders of flight and migration on Saturday, September 8. IBEX Puppetry will perform Celebration of Flight three times during the festival at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m. on Saturday, September 8. Celebration of Flight was designed by Heather Henson (daughter of Muppet creator Jim Henson) and is interactive for the audience. In the performance, giant dragonflies, cranes, and the spirits of the air will descend to Earth when called by drums and noisemakers played by the audience. As part of the performance, families will play music, fly kites, and dance alongside the creatures that fill our sky. In the Celebration of Flight story, the intangible spirits of wind guide a young crane to its destiny. Unifying concepts of dance, kite, and puppet movement with themes of seasonal movement and the Earth’s energy flow. Celebration of Flight is the latest of Heather Henson’s environmental spectacles. Awarded “Best Show” at the 21st UNIMA Congress & World Puppetry Festival in Chengdu, China in June of this year, the show features puppets, kites, and flags both from independent artists as well as the Jim Henson Creature Shop and Guildworks. During Festival of Flight, participants are invited to make a kite at the IBEX Puppetry craft table beginning at 9:30 a.m. and then fly their kites during a performance. “We are very lucky to have this incredible performance come to the Science Center,” said Iain MacLeod, Executive Director of Squam Lakes Natural Science Center. “It will be fun to see the audience interaction during the shows.” The day-long Festival of Flight also features live animal presentations, a hawk migration watch, interactive migration activities, and (for an additional fee) tethered hot air balloon rides. All of the Festival of Flight activities (except for the balloon ride) are included in the regular Science Center trail admission. For more information go to www.nhnature.org or call 603-968-7194.
