A no meat, fish, dairy, eggs or honey picnic People line up to help themselves to vegan fare at a potluck cookout Saturday at the Tilton Island Park. (Roger Amsden/for The Laconia Daily Sun)


TILTON — When people hear the word barbecue, the image that most often comes to mind are of animal products like steaks, chicken, ribs and sausages being cooked on a grill. There were none of those at a potluck vegan barbecue held Saturday at Tilton’s Island Park. That’s because the vegan diet means “no meat, fish, dairy, eggs or honey. No animal products period,’’ says Louisa Dell’Amico

of Northfield, who organized the cookout as a way of introducing area residents to the healthful and tasteful aspects of a vegan lifestyle. Dell’Amico, who describes herself as an independent activist, has been eating a plant-based diet for over 40 years. She is a massage therapist who teaches Zumba dance classes at the Pines Community Center and also teaches a cooking class using whole, unprocessed foods. The potluck barbecue is the second she’s held this summer. The first one held

at The Pines Community Center in July drew about 40 people and more than 30 had signed up for Saturday’s event, one of several she has organized to educate people about food, nutrition, animal agriculture and environmental issues. Some of those at the event weren’t vegans at all, like Judy Stewart of Northfield, a former chairman of the Winnisquam Regional School Board and former school administrator who said that she was attracted by the company and the see VeGaN page 10

TOKYO (AP) — Japan braced for more heavy rain and floods Monday as the death toll from the worst typhoon to hit the country in seven years climbed to 34. Rescuers searched for 55 others who remained missing, and tens of thousands of families struggled without power or telephone service. Typhoon Talas, which was later downgraded to a tropical storm, lashed coastal areas with destructive winds and record-setting rains over the weekend before moving offshore into the Sea of Japan. Thousands were stranded as it washed out bridges, railways and roads. The destruction added more misery to a nation still reeling from a catastrophic earthquake and tsunami six months ago. In one of his first acts in office, Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda — sworn in just one day before see JAPAN page 20

ATLANTA (AP) — The slow-moving remnants of Tropical Storm Lee dumped a torrent of rain across the South on Monday and whipped up twisters that damaged dozens of Georgia homes as the storm system pushed farther inland. One death was reported, and at least one person was injured. In Mississippi, a man was swept away by floodwaters after trying to cross a swollen creek, the first death caused by flooding or winds from Lee. The system was sweeping

through Alabama and pushing into Georgia, where the suspected tornadoes sent trees falling into homes and injured at least one person. Damage to homes ranged from rippedoff siding and shingles to holes punched through roofs by falling trees. In all, the Georgia Emergency Management Agency said about 100 homes were damaged in Cherokee County. One man was taken to the hospital with superficial injuries after being hit by flying debris.

In Woodstock, Mickey Swims and his wife hid in their home’s basement during the storm. “I heard it and saw the trees go around and around,” Swims said. “I knew when I heard it that if it touched down, it was going to be bad.” Swims owns the Dixie Speedway, where he estimated the storm caused $500,000 worth of damage. That includes about 2,000 feet of chain-link fence uprooted see LEE page 20

Texas wildfire fueled by howling winds destroys nearly 500 homes BASTROP, Texas (AP) — A roaring wildfire raced unchecked Monday through rain-starved farm and ranchland in Central Texas, destroying nearly 500 homes during a rapid advance fanned in part by howling winds from the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee. At least 5,000 people were forced from their homes in Bastrop County about 25 miles east of Austin, many of them fearing the worst while spending the night in

emergency shelters. Huge clouds of smoke soared into the sky and hung over downtown Bastrop, a town of about 6,000 people along the Colorado River. The blaze consumed as much as 25,000 acres along a line that stretched for about 16 miles, Texas Forest Service officials said. It destroyed 476 homes and about 250 firefighters were working around the clock, using bulldozers and pumper trucks against the fire, Bastrop County Judge

Ronnie McDonald said. Mike Fischer, the county emergency management director, said the fire is “nowhere near controlled,” and that a separate, smaller blaze south of the city is growing larger. “I wasn’t going to evacuate, but then the smoke got blacker and blacker and it was like: ‘OK, time to go,’” said Gina Thurman, 47, an analyst for the Texas Workforce see TEXAS page 16

TEHACHAPI, Calif. (AP) — Calmer weather on Monday was aiding firefighters battling a wildfire that was ignited by a deadly plane crash and has forced residents in about 650 homes in this mountain community to flee. Forecasters had predicted 10- to 15 mph

winds — similar to conditions that fanned the blaze after the single-engine Cessna went down near Tehachapi on Sunday. However, winds were fairly calm and favorable for crews at the fire, which has burned more than 7 square miles or 4,700 acres, Kern County fire department spokesman

Cary Wright said. “It’s nothing comparable to yesterday,” he said Monday. “If the weather stays the way it is today, it would really help our effort.” Wright said that 650 homes in three see CALIF. page 9

Obama challenges GOP Still undecided about running for president, Palin lawmakers to put country’s rails against Obama during visit to Manchester interests first & create jobs

DETROIT (AP) — President Barack Obama used a boisterous Labor Day rally 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. “Show us what you’ve got,” he said. In a partial preview of the jobs speech he’s delivering to Congress Thursday night, Obama said roads and bridges nationwide need rebuilding and more than 1 million unemployed construction workers are itching to “get dirty” making the repairs. He portrayed Congress as an obstacle to getting that work done. I’m going to propose ways to put America back to work that both parties can agree to, because I still believe both parties can work together to solve our problems,” Obama said at an annual Labor Day rally sponsored by the Detroit-area AFL-CIO. “Given the urgency of this moment, given the hardship that many people are facing, folks have got to get together. But we’re not going to wait for them.” “We’re going to see if we’ve got some straight shooters in Congress. We’re going to see if congressional Republicans will put country before party,” he said. Congress returns from its summer recess this week and the faltering economy and jobs shortage are expected to be a dominant theme. Besides spending on public works, Obama said he wants pending trade deals passed to open new markets for U.S. goods. He also said he wants Republicans to prove they’ll fight as hard to cut taxes for the middle class as they do for profitable oil companies and the wealthiest Americans. The president is expected to call for continuing a payroll tax cut for workers and jobless benefits for see OBAMA page 14

MANCHESTER (AP) — Sarah Palin left open the possibility of a presidential bid Monday afternoon, while encouraging tea party activists to unite against President Obama. And the former Alaska governor praised Republican presidential candidates for working harder to appeal to the tea party movement. “Now we’re seeing more and more folks realize the strength of this grassroots movement and they’re wanting to be involved,” she told hundreds of activists at a Tea Party Express rally in the Granite State’s largest city. “I say, ‘Right on, better late than never,’ for some of these campaigns, especially.” She didn’t name any names, but former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney is among those courting tea party groups this weekend. But Palin’s New Hampshire appearance comes amid rising frustration — and indifference — among Granite State Republicans and tea party activists over her hazy intentions. She has drawn headlines, dominated cable news coverage and raised supporters’ hopes through several recent visits to early voting states. And as she did Monday, she has consistently left open the possibility she would seek the presidency. A New Hampshire tea party leader couldn’t hold back his frustration Sunday night at another rally

hosted by the Tea Party Express. “Once again it is time to determine— are you here to sell books or are you here to run for president of the United States?” asked Corey Lewandowski, state director for Americans for Prosperity, a tea party ally. “The people of New Hampshire deserve to know, are you serious? And if you are serious, then welcome to the race. And if you’re not serious, get out of the way because we’re going to elect a new president.” Aside from Monday’s visit — her second in New Hampshire over the last three months — local operatives say Palin has not moved to hire staff or organize a ground game here in the state that will host the nation’s first presidential primary in roughly five months. “At this late stage, there’s been so little infrastructure work for a potential candidacy, I think this is simply Sarah Palin wanting to be part of the process and to help shape the debate for the presidential campaign,” said Michael Dennehy, who led Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign four years ago, but is uncommitted this year. “At some point immediately — meaning the next week or two — she’s going to hurt herself badly if she does not announce that she’s not going to run for president.” see PALIN page 14

Man at crowded N.H. campground threatens to shoot himself

RAYMOND (AP) — Police say a New Hampshire man armed with a gun is facing charges after threatening to kill himself at a crowded campground. Raymond police went to Pine Acres RV Resort on Sunday night after receiving a report of an intoxicated man threatening suicide. Police say the man ran into a trailer and barricaded himself when officers arrived.

Fifty-three-year-old Mark Cormier of Raymond9 was eventually coaxed out of the trailer and taken to a hospital for an evaluation. Police say he will be charged with criminal threatening. The Southern New Hampshire Special Operations Unit, state police and several nearby police departments helped end the standoff safely.

Critical thinking Critical thinking is a special skill that may come naturally to some people but it is most often learned formally as a separate topic and/or integrated in several academic courses. It has several dimensions, 35 of which have been identified in http://www. TRK12-strategy-list.cfm One of these is independent thinking or thinking for oneself and rejecting irrational beliefs many of which appear to be espoused by some presidential candidates. Independent thinkers can distinguish between genuine and false authorities. Critical thinkers are also more sociocentric than egocentric in that they are willing to consider others’ points of view that have merit. They don’t just dismiss everything a person says because that person is considered “an anarchist” or some other label. Egocentric thinkers see things in absolute either/or, right/wrong, or good/bad terms and are unable to reconcile or synthesize opposing views. They are likely to engage in groupthink and misunderstand or distort what others say. They also allow authorities to define their enemies for them. Critical thinkers tend to be fairminded and to see both strengths and weaknesses in other points of view rather than dismissing them outright, calling names or threatening violence. Critical thinkers tend to admit when they are wrong and can see some merits in opposing positions. One of the benefits of multiculturalism is that it helps us to see how others who are different from us see things. No one group has a monopoly on truth or morality. Selman teaches about the process of perspective-taking which is a developmental process that occurs with maturation and teaching. Exploring thoughts underlying feelings and vice versa is an important element of critical thinking because the two are not separable. Thoughts, feelings and behavior are involved in an integrated way. When we isolate them, we give reign to the irrational. Critical thinkers practice intellectual humility and suspend judgment. They know what they don’t know and are sensitive to their own biases without being pushovers in terms of their principles. This means that it is important to listen with a third ear so that one can get the whole story. Critical thinkers also show intellectual courage and are able to express unpopular ideas, beliefs and viewpoints. Many ideas that seemed “nutty” to one generation are seen as normal in the next generation. Social progress can’t be made without challenges to current norms and beliefs and someone must take on this role. Thus, critical thinkers tend

to be nonconformists and march to a different drummer. Critical thinkers operate out of intellectual good faith or integrity and this makes them aware of their own discrepancies and inconsistencies. Critical thinkers demonstrate intellectual perseverance and they pursue ideas in the face of resistance. Confidence in reason is a common trait of critical thinkers. They want to make sense out of the world and use a combination of intuition and reason to do so. Critical thinkers tend to refine generalizations and avoiding oversimplifications. Noncritical thinkers over-generalize and absolutize. This is revealed in apocalyptic language and is reflective of concrete thinking. Critical thinkers, on the other hand, see things in terms of both/and and they attack issues and ideas rather than people. Language used by critical thinkers includes “often”, usually”, “seldom”, “it seems that”, “probably”, etc. all of which suggest flexibility and relativity. Transferring insights to new contexts is also something that critical thinkers often do. By this is meant that they apply ideas and insights to new situations so that useful ways of thinking can be generalized appropriately. Other dimensions of critical thinking include: creating or exploring theories, arguments or beliefs; clarifying issues, conclusions or beliefs; clarifying and analyzing the meanings of words and phrases; clarifying values and standards; evaluating the credibility of sources of information; questioning deeply: raising and pursuing root or significant questions; analyzing or evaluating arguments, interpretations, beliefs or theories; generating or assessing solutions; analyzing or evaluating actions or policies; reading critically – analyzing or critiquing texts; listening critically; making interdisciplinary connections; practicing Socratic discussion; reason dialogically: comparing perspectives, interpretation or theories; comparing and contrasting ideals with actual practice; thinking precisely about thinking; noting significant similarities and differences; examining or evaluating assumptions; distinguishing between relevant and irrelevant facts; making plausible inferences, predictions or interpretations; giving reasons and evaluating evidence and alleged facts; recognizing contradictions; exploring implications and consequences. Critical thinkers do not think mainly subjectively or even totally objectively because experiences require reflection to uncover deep meanings nor do they base all their views on emotional reactivity whereas noncritical thinkers tend to form opinions based on see next page

LETTERS Important meeting on Laconia sewer rate to be held on Sept. 12 To the editor, On Monday, Sept. 12th the Finance Committee of the City Council will meet prior to the regular council meeting that evening to discuss sewer rates and the necessity for raising the present fee schedule. To understand the underlying reasons, a little history needs to be known. First, the Sewer Dept. operates from an enterprise fund and not from the general fund or paid for by taxpayers. It operates solely on funds from the rate payers. Because there were severe losses in income versus expenses for the past few years, it has been necessary to draw from the Sewer Fund Retained Earnings Account. If there are no adjustments we are projected to use $1-million dollars from fund balance on top of $637-thousand we did last year and $540-thousand the year before, thus leaving the fund in danger of going broke. These losses are not only due to increased retirement and health insurance increases, but also an increase in the Winnipesaukee River Basin Program operating budget and new capital upgrades in the UV system. The WRB represents 69-percent of our total sewer budget. This year sewer budget for the WRB alone is for $2.3-million. When I first came to the council, I had no idea what the Winnipesaukee River Basin Program was, and I am sure most of you out there are also unaware of it. A brief history of this project is essential to your understanding of the cost of this project which is absolutely necessary to our economic and personal survival. Just a few weeks ago, there was a break in the sewage line in Meredith. Fortunately, it did not affect the system. Also, three years ago, a huge storm demolished portions of the Weirs boardwalk to such an extent, the damage extended to within inches of an interceptor of the WRBP system. This would have been catastrophic and sewage would have spilled into the lake and then our water system. This is a project built 30 years ago and is state-owned at a cost of approximately $70-million, mostly federal money. It services 10 communities: Belmont, Center Harbor, Franklin, Gilford, Laconia, Meredith, Moultonborough, Northfield, Sanbornton, and Tilton.

It was developed after many years of study by these communities because of the declining water quality due to inadequately treated wastewater discharges of Laconia and other communities. Some towns were discharging raw sewage into the Winnipesaukee River. Inadequate treatment created algae problems in the summer in Lake Winnisquam and with the increased population along the shorelines of Lake Winnipesaukee itt was absolutely imperative to our tourism industry and to our own drinking water that we took care of our waterways, and it still is today. The wastewater treatment facility is located in Franklin and the maintenance facility in Laconia and they are operated by employees of the Dept. of Environmental Services. The cost of maintaining the WRBP is shared by the 10 communities. Laconia’s share for maintenance is 49.87-percent and the next highest percentage is 25.75-percent by Franklin, and decreases thereafter for other towns. The formula for who pays what percentage was established 30 years ago with projections for the future, but some towns have not grown and some have. We are installing sewage meters in primary locations to determine actual usage of this system. Now, after 30 years, it is necessary and mandated to do some high cost updates and modernization. The state has underfunded for years for improvements so there is no money for these updates. The towns are now faced with a $6-million bill for these updates. The towns make up an advisory board but have no voting rights so changing the formula for payment or choosing what projects will be done still lies with the state. The city and town managers are currently working on a new understanding with the state and are hopeful the Legislature will give them voting rights. However, at this time, the needed updates and modernization are going forward and will be discussed at meeting. These are some of the reasons why we will be discussing the fee schedule of the Sewage Department. You are encouraged to attend meeting or watch the council meeting that evening starting at 7 p.m. on MetroCast channel 26. The committee meeting is at 6:30 p.m. Councilor Brenda Baer Ward 4 - Laconia

LETTERS No way the government spends 78-cents a dollar on overhead To the editor, In regards to the numbers in Gene Danforth’s letter about government demands and growth, I don’t believe a word of it. Mr Danforth tells us these numbers vary from source to source yet he cites not one source. That’s no way to make a claim for outrageous and unbelievable statistics. This is probably because he heard the numbers on right wing media or just made them up. There is no way on this beautiful blue planet the government spends 72-percent of a dollar to provide 28-cents of service. Its a teabagger claim invented by those who hate government. And Mr. Danforth’s math contains an amusing math error while he passionately passes on his unlikely propa-

ganda. On top of that 72-percent claim he revises the tables by telling us that it takes $172 to yield $100 in benefits. Well, folks that an BRAND NEW percentage because 28-percent of $172 is $48.16, not $100. By his original 28-percent outcome, that means of the $172 paid in for a service, $48.16 is used for the service, not $100. He says, “depending on the sources” and I say, cite them. Any of them! Give ‘em up because in this high tech world we can all go to the website and check for ourselves. When people don’t cite sources for bizarre claims they either have something to hide, just don’t know, or are willing to say anything for “the cause”. James Veverka Tilton

Let opposing opinions & viewpoints always be allowed a voice To the editor, When I can, (I work full-time at 68) I especially like the ” to the editor” comments presented daily in this fine newspaper. I think the words are “fair and balanced” (yes, I watch Fox News). I have to admit, reading some of the comments submitted by the good citizens (yes, Democrats to0) of the region, I really get a sense of democracy at its best from the resident discourse of the area. While I do not agree with many comments and what I think is flawed logic, everyone has a right to his/her opinion. The intense discourse between strong believers is interesting to read as logic and common sense usually prevails as to who is correct in my mind.

I wish I was an accomplished wordsmith but I am not so I’d rather read what the local folks say and think then reading some national pointy headed talking pseudo journalist telling me what I am supposed to believe and think. I think the American people are smart enough to eventually see through even the muddiest water put forth by some politicians to come to a conclusion on what is right and wrong, or at least being an optimist. I sure hope so. Let Democracy do its thing and let opposing opinions and viewpoints always be allowed to be voiced. Keep up the great comments. Buz Spaulding Center Harbor

One more reason why Shaker Regional needs to adopt SB-2 To the editor, I read with interest an article in last week’s paper concerning the several thousand dollars that the Shake Regional School District suddenly finds itself with. I was surprised not to even see the suggestion of perhaps returning this money to the already overburdened taxpayers in Belmont and Canterbury,

or at least examine that possibility to see if that could be done. I should not have been surprised, perhaps disappointed would be more fitting. More reason that SB-2 is needed for this school district! Don Irvin Belmont

from preceding page pure gut reactions, seek out opinions of only people with whom they agree, form opinions based on ignorance or naivete, believe only what authorities have taught them, base their beliefs and opinions on fear and hate, rely solely on religious scripture, societal beliefs or family traditions or lash out when their beliefs are critically examined ( rfowers/Critical%20Thinking.htm). It is possible to see critical thinking done across the political spectrum from left to middle to right. There is a continuum of critical thought and some people may mix critical thought with noncritical thought because the former is emerging. I also have observed that whistleblowers and conscientious objectors tend to be critical thinkers because they think deeply about their role as it relates to questionable immoral activities over which they have some personal

responsibility. Bradley Manning and Daniel Ellsberg come to mind in this regard. Critical thinking can also be found to be a salient dimension among some groups such as the Maryknoll Order of the Catholic Church, The American Friends Service Committee, Greenpeace, Amnesty International and many UN NGOs. Critical thinking is hard work and those who aspire to it sometimes give in to noncritical thought because they are human and make mistakes. However, it is less important to err than to know when one has erred so that critical thinking can be resumed. The world will not improve until mindfulness reaches fruition and when people think critically and demonstrate that critical thought by a high level of civility in discourse and action. (Leo R. Sandy is professor of counselor education at Plymouth State University and a consulting school psychologist.)

LETTERS Time is now for Marine Patrol to declare no wake zone on Winona To the editor, As many of your readers may be aware, there has been an ongoing controversy surrounding the water levels at Lake Winona and Lake Waukewan. While storm events such as Irene have an anticipated rise in waters and, certainly, other people are truly suffering, I call attention, yet again, to this ongoing problem. Yes, we expect our lake level to increase at times like this, but had our lake level been managed properly, and at the desired 339.5 before any proactive efforts to lower with the storm approaching, things would not be this bad. This would be a good time for the DES to re-assess their decision to keep the water level on these lakes a bit higher. Many have fought hard for a choice in favor of the environment/erosion and the decision was faulty. A middle of the road choice was made, and I feel it was to appease property owners on the lake who were more concerned about docks and boating than thinking clearly about our water quality as well as siltation and lake aging. Continued erosion (as evidenced by the attached photo taken this week) means these lakes will fill in, over time, and we and our ancestors will lose these beautiful places forever. Had Winona been at a more desirable water level before this storm, my beach and the land that has been “under attack” by continual high water erosion would not be in the situation it is this week, or at least the situation would not have been as bad. Must we go through this again and again, each time we have storm events such as hurricanes, “100 year rains/floods”, etc. Our water has been this high more times than I can count in recent years. That erosion, now, is irrecoverable in some cases. More trees will fall, more phosphorous will wash into our lakes. More siltation will fill in, causing more and more “sand bars” as we have on Winona. Winona is what we would refer to as a bottleneck. While levels on Waukewan have decreased since the storm, and the dam at Mill’s Falls was open. Now, a few boards have been returned even though Winona is still very high, as evidenced by my photos. Water is cascading into this small lake from mountain streams and the Northern inlet (from the Holderness area, where high water has resulted from the Pemi River and other bodies of water) with a little outlet that is partially blocked by a beaver dam. This has made things intolerable. We are in great danger of the lake filling in (with increased sand bars and siltation) if this continues. My e-mail to Marine Patrol, yesterday, asking them to call “no wake” for Winona due to severe environmentally unsafe conditions has, so far, gone unanswered. I hope, by the time you receive this later and hopefully put it in print, that Marine Patrol has addressed this. I show you a photo taken, just yesterday, of my dock/boats and a photo taken last July that shows what our beach would normally look like, and should look like. Proper lake level management will help to prevent issues that contribute to lake aging (filling in of glacial lakes) as well as possibly prevent Cyanobacteria blooms that are believed to be from increases in phosphorous levels caused by repeated erosion and washing of things such as lawn chemicals into lakes. I call on the DES to communicate with Marine Patrol and set “no wake” at Lake Winona immediately. I call on the DES to re-assess their lake level decision and begin more pro-active water lowering when storms such as Irene are known to be approaching. Linda Heminway Sunset Point, Lake Winona

Every one of our wars had had the support of both parties To the editor, On Wednesday, Leon R. Albushies tells us all about how dangerous our military and those terrible war mongering Republicans are. Illegal wars he claims, right out of the DNC talking points. He goes to the history of George Bush’s administration to prove his point. Oh those terrible Republicans! Hey Leon why not go back a little farther? Say we look at the 20th Century for a clearer picture. Lets see who was president when we were thrown into WWI ? Oh yea, Woodrow Wilson, a progressive Democrat. Now WW2, that’s right another progressive Democrat, FDR. Korea, Well surprise sur-

prise another progressive Democrat Harry Truman. Hey, is there a pattern forming here? What about Vietnam, Oh my, Lindon Johnson another progressive Democrat. Holy smoke I do see a pattern. That pattern is that our wars are BIPARTISAN. Every one had or has the support of both parties. Look it up! Oh, and by the way, calming the 600,000 deaths in Iraq were due to U.S. troops is a damn lie. Terrorism among competing sects among there own people accounted for most of the post invasion causality’s. Look it up and stop trying to revise history Leon. Steve Earle Hill

N.H. Supreme Court will hear FRM victims’ appeal of ruling they can’t sue state banking department By Gail OBer


CONCORD — The N.H. Supreme Court will consider a lower court ruling that a Meredith man victimized by an infamous Ponzi scheme cannot hold the Banking Department liable for some of his losses. Frank and Jo-Anne Marino, through their attorney Peter Tamposi, said an employee of the state Banking Department did not give them accurate information when they called and asked if there were any complaints or lawsuits against the now-defunct Meredith lender Financial Resources Management (FRM) and argued the department should be held responsible for economic damages made after the phone call. Frank Marino says he called the N.H. Banking Department on Feb. 9, 2009 and spoke with employee Michelle Kelleher — who assured him she was the proper employee to address his questions. He said FRM was late paying him some interest on a loan he previously made through them and wanted to know if the company was in good standing and if there were any other complaints and or lawsuits against them. He agrees that Kelleher told him she was not in any position to counsel him on what he should do with his money, but said that when she agreed to give him some information she was obligated to give him all of the information for which he asked. Kelleher told him there was one minor complaint against FRM, now resolved, when information later released by the Banking Department revealed there were numerous violations and complaints about the company. The Marinos engaged in two more transactions with FRM President Scott Farah and and ultimately lost nearly all of their life savings — some $262,000. Farah, the architect of the Ponzi scheme, is presently invacarted in federal prison. Merrimack Superior Court President Justice Richard McNamara ruled in January of 2011 that the N.H. Department of Banking “owed no actionable duty” to the Marinos -— two of the estimated 400 victims of the failed enterprise. McNamara said while people “must refrain from causing personal injury and property damage to third persons (the Marinos)” N.H. Courts have continually held that there is no corresponding civil wrong duty — or tort — for purely economic reasons. He ruled further that absent a “spe-

cial relationship,” either professional, formal or financial relationship or “negligent misrepresentation” there can be no economic recovery. McNamara said described the banking department as “a government agency and its employee” and said they are “not professionals” -— such as a personal accountant or a financial adviser would be — so the standard was not met. He also said the Marinos had no reason to rely on the Banking Department for professional investment advice. He said the Tamposi’s argument “presented no legislative history to suggest the state intended to create an actionable duty” when it enacted state banking laws. To be decided by the five justices is whether or not Kelleher, once she decided to talk to Frank Marino, triggered the negligent misrepresentation clause in the law when she didn’t tell him about all of the complaints nor of the various infractions noticed by the Banking Department during six routine investigations of the former Meredith mortgage company. In his appeal Tamposi argues that when he made the Feb. 9, 2009 phone call to the Department of Banking, Marino knew he was not in a paid-for-service relationship like an accountant or financial adviser, but none-the-less Kelleher was “fulfilling her public duty to provide information for the protection of a class of persons of which Marino was a member.” Tamposi argues that by definition and in law, the Banking Department is not only charged with “policing [sic] the ranks of its licensees” but the responsibility is enhanced by the Banking Department exclusive authority to police its membership. He argues further that the policing authority of the Banking Department is to investigate “conduct that is or may be unfair or deceptive” as defined by state law. “The perpetration of the FRM Ponzi scheme, reported to have caused $20-million in losses to over 150 victims is an unfair or deceptive practice squarely forbidden by RSA 358-A:2.” An appeal to an upper court is only a review of the law and no new facts or evidence is admitted. Because New Hampshire has no appellate level court between the superior and the supreme level, all petitioned cases are considered either through oral or written arguments. It can take as many as two years for the Supreme Court to issue a ruling.

Beane Conference Center in Laconia is new business venture for father & son By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA - Russell and Craig Beane, a father and son who are two of the owners of the WilkinsonBeane-Simoneau-Paquette Funeral Home, had longterm plans to develop a conference center in the city. In fact, they had already purchased a property on New Salem Street with the intention of renting the space until they were ready to renovate. However, opportunity has a way of changing timelines, and when the Jehovah Witness church advertised for sale of their Kingdom Hall building on Blueberry Lane, the Beanes realized that their conference center was sitting right in front of them, waiting only for them to sign on the dotted line. And so, the Beane Conference Center was born sooner, rather than later. “I was just driving by, saw a sign on the building, a few days later we were checking it out,” said Craig. The Beanes closed on the real estate purchase on July 21st and walked into a building that was nearly exactly the combination of amenities they one day

hoped to create at their New Salem Street property, currently rented by, among others, the Salvation Army’s thrift store. Craig noted that the conference center is administered as a limited liability corporation independent of the funeral home. It was through their work as funeral directors, however, that the Beanes realized a local need for a space for medium-sized groups to gather. Often, when assisting families plan a funeral, the clients ask about opportunities for a luncheon, dinner or gathering following the services. Craig could only suggest a city park house, which has limited availability, or local restaurants, which might not offer the amenities or privacy that the family would appreciate. The building at 35 Blueberry Lane was built in the early 1970s to be a Kingdom Hall for the local organization of Jehovah Witness. The building was then renovated and expanded in 1986. With about 4,700-square-feet, all located on an accessible, single floor, plenty of parking and in well-kept condition, see next page

Manchester teens charged with breaking into Gilford cars GILFORD — Two young Manchester men were being held in the Belknap County Jail Monday night after their arrests here Monday morning in connection with a series of motor vehicle break-ins. Travis Dukette, 18, and Zackary Gingras, 19, were apprehended in response to reports of thefts in the area of Longridge Drive and Belknap Mountain Road. The first call came in to police at 6:10 a.m. Dukette was charged with a Class B felony crime of receiving stolen property, operating a vehicle after suspension and a violation of probation. He refused bail and will be arraigned in 4th District Court in Laconia this morning.

Gingras was held on a probation violation. According to a police report, a caller was able to give police a description of both men and the car they were driving. The vehicle, police learned, had been reported stolen. Arriving at the scene, Officers Kristoher Kloetz and Adam Vansteeensburg were able to identify the suspect vehicle and the two men associated with it. They recovered items from the vehicle matching those that were reported stolen. Police say the investigation of this incident continues and additional arrests and charges are possible. Anyone who may have witnessed suspicious activity is asked to contact police at 527-4737.

County Attorney secures grant for victim services program

LACONIA — Belknap County Attorney Melissa Guldbrandsen announced yesterday her office has received a $26,500 federal Department of Justice grant to support it’s victim services program. State law mandates victims have a right to be treated with fairness and respect as well as kept appraised of the status of the cases, the dates of court proceedings, and a explanation of the criminal process. Guldbrandsen regards Victim Witness Coordinator Barbara Belmont and the work she does as inte-

gral to the work of the County Attorney’s Office. Belmont has been employees as county victim witness coordinator for 20 years, said Guldbrandsen, and the grant will serve to augment her services and immeasurable support of victims of crime. She also said the County Attorney Office also received a federal grant for computer software in the amount of $31,950 that will serve to integrate the data management system for prosecutors in all counties.

CALIF. from page 2 rugged communities were ordered to evacuate. At least one structure was destroyed, but that number was expected to go up. About 600 firefighters, backed by a DC-10 jumbo jet tanker and more than a dozen other aircraft, were battling the fire, said Nick Schuler, a California Department of Fire and Forestry Protection spokesman. About 5 percent of the blaze has been contained. Ground crews were focused on creating a break between the fire and the trailer, ranch and vacation homes in communities south of Tehachapi, a city of 8,000 south of Bakersfield, Wright said. Firefighters

were also working to protect the nearby wind farms threatened by the blaze. Authorities did not know how many people were on the plane that crashed, but two people have been confirmed dead. Their names were not immediately released. National Transportation Safety Board investigators reached the site of the wreckage Monday to investigate the cause of the crash, Wright said. To the south, a barn fire grew to more than 400 acres of desert brush in northern Los Angeles County Monday afternoon, county fire department inspector Matt Levesque told KNX-AM.

from preceding page Craig said they saw their future plans materialized in front of them. “A great facility, in move-in condition,” he said. The conference center now includes a pair of flatscreen televisions, total capacity of 210 people, a full sound system with microphones and could serve as a site for a small wedding, conferences or social gatherings. With space suitable for a caterer, Craig sees many possible uses for the space. For example, early bookings include a meeting of the Laconia Rotary Club and a group of fantasy football enthusiasts looking for a place to hold a player draft. Those who would like to see the Beane Conference

New Lakes Region adult basketball league forming for play in Gilford GILFORD — Motivated by a desire for fitness and social interaction, not to mention a love of the game, a Laconia man is partnering with the Gilford Youth Center to start an adult basketball league this winter. Wayne Gregoire, 32, is a member of a team in a similar league in Concord and thinks there’s enough local interest to start one closer to home. “All my teammates are from this area, there are several other teams from this area,” he said. “I’d like to get something started in this area.” Working with the Youth Center, located on Potter Hill Road, Gregoire has hammered out many of the details of the league. The only eligibility for the league is that players be 18 years old or older, though Gregoire cautioned that men and women who are interested should be prepared for competitive play. With five-on-five play, teams in the league can range in size from five players to 10. Teams will play one game per week, either on a weekday evening or on the weekend. Games

will be played in two halves, 16 minutes each. The regular season will last for 18 games, followed by double-elimination playoffs. Differentiating his league from others, Gregoire said all games will be called by officials certified by the New Hampshire Interscholastic Athletic Association. Due in part to this expense, league fees will be $1,050, which will include reversible mesh jerseys. Teams may choose to seek a business sponsor to defray the cost. Gregoire is currently planning for the league to last for the winter, though he said he would continue it into the spring if there’s enough interest. He said there are many reasons why he wanted to bring an adult basketball league to the Lakes Region. “I just really love the game. It’s a great social activity, then then there’s the fitness avenue.” Those with further questions or who wish to register a team should contact the Gilford Youth Center at 524-6057 or visit — Adam Drapcho

Building owner Mike Baron continues to manufacture and sell custom-built pool tables from the rear section of the structure and The Daily Sun is taking over his former showroom at the front. “Moving to Mike’s building will allow us to more than double the space we have now,” said Engler. “We been a little cramped for some time and this will also give us room to continue to grow as a business.” Engler said the new location also offers plenty of on-site parking for both employees and customers, inlcuding five spaces right in front of the

VEGAN from page one ability to exchange ideas with a group of interesting people. “I enjoy cooking in all different ways and especially like healthy options,” said Stewart, who brought along a black bean salad with corn and peppers that also featured balsamic vinegar and garlic. Elizabeth Dion of Northfield was there with a friend from Florida, who had brought a vegan dish to the event, and said of the food “this is delicious.” I need to learn how to do it.” Linda Prescott of Belmont was there with her husband, Scott and their children and she brought a brown rice and black bean salad as well as a berry pie. “We’re all trying to be vegetarians,” she said, adding that vegan fare such as sausages, burger and hot dogs made with soy were just as tasty and much healthier than their animalbased counterparts. “No one eats meat plain. It’s the sauce and spices that makes it taste better anyway and that’s what’s in the vegan food,’’ says Prescott.

Her husband, Scott, said that the whole family was in transition from a conventional diet and was trying to eat healthier so they would live longer and enjoy good health. Dell’A mico says that being a vegan goes hand in hand with the animal rights movement, which she strongly supports. She holds an A.A.S. in dietetic technology and a B.A. in environmental studies and in March presented a program at the University of New Hampshire “An Inconvenient Food: The Link Between Animal Agriculture, Global Warming and Environmental Degradation” She says that the most of the world’s current food systems are unsustainable and that animal agriculture helps produce carbon, methane, and nitrous oxide gases which damage the environment. “Even if you’re not a supporter of animal rights, from an environmental standpoint it makes sense to change what’s happening with our food system,” she says.

Beckett hurt in Red Sox 1-0 loss to Jays TORONTO (AP) — One day into Boston’s sevengame road trip, Josh Beckett is packing his bags and heading home. The right-hander will return to Boston on Tuesday to see a doctor about the sore right ankle that forced him out of Monday’s 1-0 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. Beckett left in the fourth inning after feeling pain in his ankle on consecutive pitches to Blue Jays rookie Brett Lawrie, whose 11th inning homer provided the only run of the game. “It’s always concerning,” Beckett said. “That’s my power leg.” Beckett said he slipped and fell while warming up in the bullpen, but didn’t think that had anything to do with the pain that forced him out. “I felt it on the second to last pitch and then it felt a little bit different on the last pitch I threw,” he said. “I didn’t feel it till those last two pitches. “It felt like it was locked up and then it popped in and out of the socket or something,” Beckett added. Catcher Jason Varitek didn’t notice anything out of the ordinary until Beckett missed with a 1-2 fastball to Lawrie. “He seemed to make a funny face and kind of came off the mound funny on that pitch,” said Varitek, who promptly called manager Terry Francona and trainer Mike Reinold out of the dugout. After a brief discussion, Beckett walked off the

field without assistance and was replaced by righthander Alfredo Aceves. “It was getting stiff and it was getting sore so we got him out of there,” Francona said. Beckett was able to stand and walk after the game, but said his ankle was still sore. “It’s bad timing, but who knows?,” he said. “I could be back out there in six days. We’ll see.” An All-Star for the third time this season, Beckett came in having won his past three starts. He allowed three hits in 3 2-3 scoreless innings with six strikeouts and one walk. After 10 scoreless innings, Lawrie won it with a two-out drive to center off Dan Wheeler (2-2), his eighth homer since being called up from Triple-A Las Vegas on Aug. 4 and the first walkoff hit of his career. “My head is still going a mile a minute,” Lawrie said. “It’s one of those things that’s very, very cool and I’ll treasure it forever.” Wheeler said he missed with his location on the decisive pitch. “It was a fastball, just kind of flat,” Wheeler said. “It went right down the middle. It was supposed to be down and away but didn’t quite get there.” Shawn Camp (3-3) pitched one scoreless inning for the win as the Blue Jays snapped a three-game losing streak.

from preceding page tific research that shows that degenerative diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes and even several forms of cancer can be prevented and in some cases reversed by a whole foods plant-based diet. Cynthia and Norman Scrimshaw of Thornton are strong supporters of that idea. “We’ve been on a plant-based diet since the summer of 2008. I’ve lost 100 pounds. My husband had heart disease and had a coronary bypass in 2004 and we decided that we wanted to still have a lot of years together and started to learn whatever we could about being healthy.’’ she says. She says that a study of people in rural China showed that those who had not been exposed to processed food and had a plant-based diet were healthier and lived longer than those who lived in cities and had a more Westernized diet. Norman Scrimshaw says that he was pre-diabetic and was taking medicine for high blood pressure and cholesterol problems. Since the switch to a

plant-based diet his blood pressure has dropped to a normal range and his cholesterol count, once over 200, has dropped to a healthy 137 level. Cynthia, a nurse practitioner specializing in mindbody medicine, will be the co-leader of a post film interactive discussion at the Red River Theater in Concord at 7 p.m. Friday night following the opening night showing of the movie, “Forks over Knives”, a documentary which features some of the most recent scientific research on the healthful aspects of whole food. plant-based diets.

PALIN from page 3 The head of a prominent Granite State conservative think tank, also a tea party ally, says there is a growing sense of indifference among local conservatives. “If she had done it right she could be popular here,” said Kevin Smith, executive director of Cornerstone. “But I don’t feel a lot of energy or enthusiasm here about a Palin run. Voters here in this state, who frankly have been taking this primary seriously since the beginning of the year, are indifferent.” That said, she drew hundreds of supporters to Monday afternoon’s rally. And she was interrupted

once with chants of, “Run, Sarah, run.” “I appreciate your encouragement, I do,” she said, offering no more insight into her presidential ambitions. The Republican presidential candidates, however, have much riding on a Palin candidacy, as she could dramatically change the dynamic of the race. Operatives here think a Palin bid would eat into Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s support and therefore help Romney. Speaking at another Manchester event Monday morning, Romney welcomed Palin to the race. “There’s always room for governor Palin,” he said.

OBAMA from page 3 the unemployed. Some Republicans oppose extending the payroll tax cut, calling it an unproven job creator that will only add to the nation’s massive debt. The tax cut extension is set to expire Jan. 1. Republicans also cite huge federal budget deficits in expressing opposition to vast new spending on jobs programs. But Obama said lawmakers need to act — and act quickly. “The time for Washington games is over. The time for action is now,” he told a supportive union crowd that Detroit police said was in the thousands. The event at a General Motors Corp. parking lot in the shadow of the automaker’s headquarters building had the sound and feel of a campaign event, with the union audience breaking into chants of “Four More Years” throughout the president’s 25-minute speech. Obama could be including himself in that call for action. His remarks came as he’s facing biting criti-

cism from the GOP for presiding over a persistently weak economy and high unemployment. Republicans dubbed him “President Zero” after a dismal jobs report last Friday showed that employers added no jobs in August — which hasn’t happened since 1945. The unemployment rate, meanwhile, remained unchanged at 9.1 percent. The report sparked new fears of a second recession and injected fresh urgency into Obama’s efforts to help get the unemployed back into the labor market — and improve his re-election chances. No incumbent in recent times has been re-elected with a jobless rate that high, and polls show the public is losing confidence in Obama’s handling of the economy. His approval rating on that issue dropped to a new low of 26 percent in a recent Gallup survey. GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney said the report was disappointing, unacceptable and “further proof that President Obama has failed.” Romney is scheduled to get ahead of Obama by outlining his job-creation plan in a speech Tuesday in Nevada, two days before the president addresses Congress. Tax credits for businesses that hire and spending on school construction and renovation also are expected to be part of Obama’s proposal.

Sanbornton hosts 41st Labor Day weekend PowWow & Georgia Edwards of Laconia hasn’t missed one By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

SANBORNTON — Hundreds of people turned out to celebrate their Native American heritage at the Laconia Indian Historical Society’s 41st annual Labor Day weekend Pow Wow. The Pow Wows, organized by the Laconia Indian Historical Association, are held on a 90-acre property off from Osgood Road which was donated to the society by the Dulac Land Trust in 1969. Gerry Dulac, who donated the land, says that he is pleased to see that the tradition has held up over the years and would like to see the land continue to be used as an educational resource for future generations. “It’s a good thing to teach the next generation about the values and customs of the Native Americans. I hope someday this will be even more, that we can find new ways to celebrate the history of our ancestors,’’ says Dulac. He said that both his father, who was from the Maliseet, a Maine tribe, and his mother, whose ancestry is connected to Canadian tribes from the Montreal area, had Native American ancestors and that he is proud to be playing a role in keeping that tradition alive. Georgia Edwards of Laconia, who has been at every one of the Pow Wows since they started, said that she is happy to see the continued success of the event, which has become one of the largest in New England and usually draws about 2,000 people over the weekend. “It wasn’t very big when we started. But more people have found out about their Native American heritage and want to celebrate it at events like these,’’ said Edwards. Edwards, who is of either Blackfoot of Mic Mac ancestry, said that her Native American name is Wathina, which she explains means “when the sun shines from behind the clouds.’’ She was driving a golf cart around the campground area over the weekend and said that she is happy to just be a worker and not in charge of organizing the entire event. Edwards said that it is time for her generation to hand over responsibility for the event to a younger generation which will bring new energy and ideas to the annual Pow Wow. Among that younger generation is Brian Sulesky of New Ipswich, vice president of LIHA, who said that he wasn’t aware of his Native American heritage until he was about 16 and stopped at an Indian

crafts shop in Laconia and was told by its owner “You’re one of the people,’’ as he entered the store. “He recognized my Native American traits. So I talked with my father about it and found out that he was from the Me’tis, those who are not fully Native American, and that my great-grandmother was a full-blooded Pequaket from Fryeburg, Maine. My mother is part Mohawk. It filled me with a great deal of pride to know that. It made me understand where I’m from and let me know the history of my family,” says Sulesky. He said that he looks forward every year to the Pow Wows and that when he becomes president of LIHA he will be working to strengthen them in future years and find new ways to bring younger people into the organization and build for the future.

JEWETT from page one of flooding at Normandin Square. Jewett Brook rises in Gilford, not far south of Swain Road, and flows northward to Liberty Hill Road, where it is fed by a tributary meandering southwest from Saltmarsh Pond. Paralleling Liberty Hill Road, the brook passes beneath County Club Road and the Route 3 and 11 Bypass and crosses the Lakes Business Park. At Hounsell Avenue, just south of the northern entrance to the park on Gilford Avenue, the main stem of the brook is joined by a major tributary that originates to the northeast, on the north side of Route 11-A about halfway between the bypass and Hoyt Road. From there the brook runs westward, roughly parallel to Gilford Avenue, skirts Tardiff Park and runs under Highland Street and Union Avenue before passing under the Normandin Square Apartments and Davis Place from where it empties into the Winnipesaukee River some 250 yards above the Avery Dam. The brook, along with its major and minor tributaries, stretches for about five miles, with the main stem and its major tributary representing 3.5 miles. Less than a mile of the brook flows through the city. Likewise, a small fraction of the watershed of Jewett Brook, which extends from downtown Laconia in the west to Hoyt Road in the east and north of Gilford Avenue south to the Belmont town line, lies


within the city limits. Geomorphology is the study of landscapes and, in the case of rivers and streams addresses the scouring, sedimentation, widening, slope and movement of the channel as well as the condition of the floodplain and corridor flanking it. The assessment is designed to provide the information to identify measures to restore the capacity of the brook to carry optimal volumes of water and to improve water quality and wildlife habitat. The assessment found that the condition of the main stem of the brook east of bypass is “good,” but rated the condition of the main stem between the bypass and the river, through the city, and the major tributary along Route 11-A only as “fair.” The report evaluated 24 crossings — one arch, eight bridges and 15 culverts — and designated a dozen as “high priority” in need of replacement, including the “undersized” bridge at Davis Place, which was built with the last five years. Among the culverts recommended for replacement are two on the main stem at Country Club Road and Swain Road, seven on the major tributary at Hounsell Avenue, Route 3 and 11, Sawmill Road, Maple Street and Wesley Road and one on another tributary at Liberty Hill Road, all of which are in Gilford. Most of the culverts fail to provide sufficient passage for aquatic organisms to ensure adequate wildlife habitat.

Dubois & King are preparing a hydrologic and hydraulic analysis of the crossing at Normandin Square Apartments and Davis Place, which is marked by high levels of sedimentation and high risks of flooding. Apart from these structural measures, the report further recommends taking steps to remove or reduce man-made constraints on the meander, floodplains and banks of the brook, together with expanding and extending vegetative buffers throughout the riparian corridor. Designating Jewett Brook a “fluvial erosion hazard zone,” corridor defined by the lateral extent of the meander of the brook, the report suggests the report suggests, would minimize property damage and loss by restricting land uses that are incompatible with the optimal flow and course of the brook. The report also recommends improving stormwater management to increase the base flow while decreasing the peak flows, which will reduce both the amount of pollutants carried by the brook along with the degradation its channel and erosion of its banks. Finally, efforts should be undertaken to remove trash and debris from the brook in order to ease the flow and enhance the quality of water. TEXAS from page 2 Commission. “Waiting is the most frustrating thing,” she said, choking back tears as she sat by herself in the shade on a curb outside Ascension Catholic Church, one of several shelter sites. “You’re sitting there and you don’t know anything but your house is probably burning.” Rick Blakely, 54, said when it finally would be time to return home, “I’m not expecting anything to be standing.” He was among about 30 people who slept on cots at the church. “There was someone who asked how I was and it’s a state of shock,” he said. “I just don’t know what I’m going to do.” The new outbreak led Gov. Rick Perry to return home to Texas, cutting short a visit to South Carolina where he was campaigning for the Republican nomination for president. He also canceled a trip to California. “The wildfire situation in Texas is severe and all necessary state resources are being made available to protect lives and property,” Perry said. Authorities mobilized ground and air forces to fight the largest of at least 63 fires that broke out in Texas since Sunday as high winds from what was then Tropical Storm Lee swept into Texas, which has endured its worst drought since the 1950s.

Winni Playhouse offers 9/11-themed play ‘The Guys’ Thursday through Sun. LACONIA — As the country prepares for the 10th anniversary of the tragedy of 9/11/01, Lakes Region audiences will get the chance to come together for a very special presentation of The Guys, a play by Anne Nelson which focuses on the aftermath of the events. It will be presented by The Winni Players, the community theatre branch of The Winnipesaukee Playhouse from September 8-11. The play was written immediately following 9/11 and made its debut in NY less than three months later, starring Sigourney Weaver and Bill Murray. Many productions followed, including a film version with Weaver and Anthony LaPaglia. The two-person play is about a fire captain who is tasked with writing eulogies for eight firefighters lost from his company at the World Trade Center. Struggling to come to terms with the tragedy and how to put his feelings into words, he enlists the help of Joan, a journalist, who is herself looking for a way to understand the events that unrolled in her city. Together they celebrate those who died with heartfelt humor, compassion and dignity. The Winni Players production is directed by Matt McGonagle and stars Jim Rogato and Katie Dunn. Jim is a long-time member of the Winni Players and a trustee of the Playhouse. Katie has been seen in several Winni Player productions since moving to

the area and was a finalist for the 2010 NH Theatre Award for Best Supporting Actress for her roles in The Laramie Project. Each performance of The Guys will include an optional discussion with the director and cast following the performance to give the audience the opportunity to reflect on what they saw and the events of 9/11. “We are constantly trying to give our audiences a variety of theatrical experiences – some fun and light, others more meaningful. In this instance, we are hoping to provide an outlet for people dealing with emotions surrounding the 10th anniversary of 9/11. It’s an occasion which warrants marking in many different ways and we are glad that the theatre can play a small part in that” says Lesley Pankhurst, marketing director. The Guys may not be suitable for children under the age of 12. Tickets cost $11 for adults and $9 for seniors/ students. The Playhouse extends an offer of $5 tickets for service personnel, including fire, police, ambulance and military. There are performances Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and on Sunday, September 11 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. For more information about performances visit www.winniplayhouse. org. Tickets can be booked by calling 366-7377 or stopping by the theatre located in the Alpenrose Plaza in Weirs Beach.

Flag football registration deadline is Wed. MEREDITH — Registration for the fall season of Lakes Region Flag Football ends at midnight on Wednesday, Sept. 7.

nizer Bob Giroux. “So sign up, and send the money later … when you can; if you have been overwhelmed with back-to-school expenses, wondering where the gas prices are going to go, we understand, and the important thing is to get your child signed up online immediately, if not sooner!” Questions may be addressed to or 279-1254.

young hound girl, left to wander in Center Harbour – in spite of her collar, she has never been claimed. New Hampshire Humane Society staff called this full of life dog Taffy, she’s sweet after all. Her behavior evaluation showed quickly how smart she is, and discovered along with her huge capacity to play and have fun with humans, just how many commands she knows. Taffy’s repertoire includes High Five, Shake, Dance, and the required Sit, Stay, Down: proving to competent dog lovers everywhere that someone spent time with Taffy and taught her plenty. She is a jovial dog, personable and friendly around other dogs, as befits her hound personality. She likely would forget her composure around cats, too much temptation to

chase them up the nearest tree – but she will make an energetic family with older children a great family pet. Naturally we are going to say she is about two years old … the promise of many years of companionship a given in

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You want to project a more glamorous image. Gearing up to do this will put you in touch with what exactly it is you have to offer and why you do it like no one else could. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You are genuinely curious about your leaders. Because of your interest, you will become aligned in some powerful way. You’ll make an impression and a difference. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your passion for music and art will bring you together with fellow enthusiasts. You’ll share information and gain more than knowledge -- you’ll have a sense of belonging. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll be dealing with an ever-evolving set of rules and regulations. It’s not the bureaucracy that makes things complicated; it’s the way you think about it. A funny friend will be your lifeline. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The body can’t help but give in to the passage of time. But the mind can be eternally young. You’ll revel in your youth without regard to the number of years you’ve been on the earth. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 6). People relate easily to you, and there are many who feel that you are one of their own. You’ll thrive this month as you provide well for others. In October, you’ll win a kind of competition. Commitments and deals will be inked in December. In the new year, you’ll cultivate talents such as cooking, photography or sports. Capricorn and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 15, 50, 41, 37 and 45.

Get Fuzzy


ARIES (March 21-April 19). Though some have said you have nerves of steel, when you are tired, you can get spooked easily. For instance, tonight you’ll get a glimpse of a red flag and run the other way. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Someone is talking an interesting talk to you, and you wonder whether this person can put action behind these words. Test the waters in some small way before jumping in. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When someone has a problem, you feel a responsibility to help. That’s why you won’t deal with it when it’s convenient for you -- you’ll handle it in the moment of need. Your ethics are firmly in place. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll take pride in a job well done, even though you didn’t technically do the work yourself. Cultivating a winning team is a commendable talent, though. You certainly deserve some of the credit. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The most dramatic change will also be the simplest one. Instead of trying to get yourself to change in a million ways at once, pick one small, easy-to-follow rule. For instance, don’t go online while you’re supposed to be working! VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You won’t let go of an idea. You’ll work through it, examining it from every angle to figure out what it’s really about and, more importantly, how useful it really is to you now. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Stress will act as your friend. It will be an alarm clock, letting you know that it’s time to rise to the occasion and be your best self. Stress is making you strong.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Tuesday, Sept. 6, the 249th day of 2011. There are 116 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 6, 1901, President William McKinley was shot and mortally wounded by anarchist Leon Czolgosz at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, N.Y. (McKinley died eight days later; he was succeeded by Vice President Theodore Roosevelt. Czolgosz was executed in October 1901.) On this date: In 1861, Union forces led by Gen. Ulysses S. Grant occupied Paducah, Ky., during the Civil War. In 1916, the first self-service grocery store, Piggly Wiggly, was opened in Memphis, Tenn., by Clarence Saunders. In 1939, the Union of South Africa declared war on Germany. In 1948, Princess Juliana of the Netherlands was inaugurated as queen, two days after the abdication of her mother, Queen Wilhelmina. In 1949, Howard Unruh, a resident of Camden, N.J., shot and killed 13 of his neighbors. (Found to have paranoid schizophrenia, Unruh was confined for the rest of his life; he died in a Trenton Nursing Home in 2009 at age 88.) In 1970, Palestinian guerrillas seized control of three U.S.-bound jetliners. (Two were later blown up on the ground in Jordan, along with a London-bound plane hijacked on Sept. 9; the fourth plane was destroyed on the ground in Egypt. No hostages were harmed.) In 1985, all 31 people aboard a Midwest Express Airlines DC-9 were killed when the Atlanta-bound jetliner crashed just after takeoff from Milwaukee’s Mitchell Field. One year ago: President Barack Obama rolled out a long-term jobs program that would exceed $50 billion to rebuild roads, railways and runways, and coupled it with a blunt campaign-season assault accusing Republicans of causing Americans’ hard economic times. Today’s Birthdays: Comedian JoAnne Worley is 74. Country singer David Allan Coe is 72. Rock singer-musician Roger Waters (Pink Floyd) is 68. Actress Swoosie Kurtz is 67. Comedian-actress Jane Curtin is 64. Country singer-songwriter Buddy Miller is 59. Actor-comedian Jeff Foxworthy is 53. Actor-comedian Michael Winslow is 53. Actor Steven Eckholdt is 50.

Family Fun Night at Friendly’s Flag carriers wanted for Saturday’s will support Winni Playhouse Multicultural Market Day parade LACONIA — Family Fun Night at Friendly’s from 5-8 p.m. on Thursday, September 8 will help support The Winnipesaukee Playhouse. Friendly’s patrons will have free face painting and games for children provided by Winni Playhouse staffers while they wait for their food.

LEE from page 2 from its concrete base, walls blown out of a bathroom and concession stands and tractor-trailer trucks turned into mangled messes. In other parts of the state, six families were evacuated from a Catoosa County apartment building because of flooding, while slick roads caused an 18-car pileup in Monroe County, said agency spokeswoman Lisa Janak. No one was injured in those cases. “Tropical Storm Lee really made a mess in Georgia,” she said. In areas of Louisiana and Mississippi that took the brunt of the storm over the weekend, at least 16,000 people remained without power as of Monday afternoon. The man who died in Mississippi,

57-year-old John Howard Anderson Jr., had been in a car with two other people trying to cross a rain-swollen creek on Sunday night. Tishomingo County Coroner Mack Wilemon said Anderson was outside of the car and had been thrown a rope to be rescued, but he couldn’t hold on. Jonathan Weeks, a 48-year-old salesman from Plantersville who owns a vacation home nearby, said he helped pull two people to shore and tried to save Anderson. Weeks said he and his wife saw a van crossing the creek, and he happened to have a rope in the tool box of his truck. “It all happened so fast. They were in there trying to get out and panicking. The power was out so everything was dark,” Weeks recalled in a phone interview Monday.

flags. Everyone is invited to carry a flag: schools, classes, church groups, civic organizations, neighborhoods, businesses, and individuals are all invited to participate. “It always works but wondering if enough people would show up to carry one of the 50 flags from around the world is always in the back of my mind,” said Frates, adding ”We are trying something different. Marketing the parade as Laconia’s First Ever Flash Parade and adding drums as an added challenge. If individuals in the community have and can play a drum, come join the parade..

Those interested in carrying a flag or being part of the International Parade of Flags can call 528-7651 JAPAN from page 2 Talas made landfall — vowed the government would provide as much assistance as quickly as it could. His predecessor, Naoto Kan, was forced out in large part because of public anger over the response to the tsunami, which left nearly 21,000 people dead or missing and touched off the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl. “We will do everything we can to rescue people and search for the missing,” Noda said. The typhoon was the worst to hit Japan since 2004, when 98 people were killed or reported missing. It caused most of its damage on the Kii peninsula in central Japan southwest of Tokyo and hundreds of miles (kilometers) from the country’s tsunamiravaged northeastern coast. The Japan Meteorological Agency predicted more heavy rain Tuesday in northern and western Japan, where the already sodden ground caused fears of more mudslides and floods. The extent of damage from the typhoon was still emerging Monday. Rescuers and reconnaissance teams spread out over the worst-hit areas to look for survivors or people stranded in flood zones, which though far smaller in scale were reminiscent of the debris-ridden, mud-caked wasteland created by the tsunami. Television footage showed washedout train bridges, whole neighborhoods inundated by swollen rivers and police using rope to pull frightened survivors out of homes awash in the murky waters. Nearly 200,000 households remained without power Monday afternoon, Kyodo reported. During the search effort Monday, rescuers recovered a dozen more bodies, bringing the confirmed death toll to 34, according to the government’s emergency headquarters.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, September 6, 2011— Page 21


Dear Annie: I work in a small office with two other people. The office was understaffed to begin with, and my boss is now undergoing chemotherapy and is out two weeks of every month. Then my co-worker decided to retire. As a result, I had to work a fair amount of overtime in our busiest season. Right now, the office consists of a part-time worker and me. Even though our busy season has passed, I still often end up with an hour of overtime each week. My boss’s boss has decided that since my peak-season overtime wasn’t “pre-approved,” she isn’t going to pay it. Furthermore, she had my time clock hard coded so that no matter what time I log in or out, I only get credit for a standard workday. I’m the only full-time, fully compensated employee, and I have significant responsibilities. If I don’t stay late and do whatever needs to be finished, I get in trouble. If I do stay late, I don’t get paid. I guess in this labor market, the boss wins. Needless to say, I am looking for another job. In the meantime, what do I do about this no-win situation? -- Workplace Dilemma Dear Workplace: You are being treated unfairly. However, in a small, privately owned business, there are likely no higher-ups to complain to. And although we agree that you should be compensated for the overtime, one extra hour a week is, frankly, not that much. What many employers fail to realize is that employees need to feel valued. You put in a lot of hard work during a busy season when you were effectively flying solo. The boss could alleviate much of this ill will (and the possibility of losing a loyal employee) simply by letting you know how much she appreciates you. We hope she sees this. Dear Annie: I am 50 years old and have been widowed for a year. I recently met a nice man, and we went on a couple of

dates. But I had mixed feelings. I still felt “married,” and it was causing me great turmoil, so I told this wonderful guy that it was too soon for me to date. He said he respected my feelings and to give him a call when I am ready. Now I’m regretting my decision. He’s a great guy, and we share similar interests. I don’t know how to sort this out. My family still mourns the loss of my husband, who was an exceptional man. I don’t know how they will react to my dating so soon, and I’m afraid to ask for fear of upsetting them. What should I do? -- Widowed and Confused Dear Widowed: Dating is such a personal decision. Some people are ready in a month, while others never feel comfortable. Most folks would agree, however, that a year is a respectable amount of time to wait. You should feel free to date if you want to, but we also recommend you discuss this with your children. Let them know their father will never be forgotten, but you want to feel that happiness again someday and hope they will want that for you, too. Dear Annie: I’d like to comment on the letter from “Wedding Gift Nightmare,” who gave her niece some antique china as a wedding gift. My husband and I had been married less than five years when we took a vacation to meet his Aunt Susie. She served us a delicious lunch. As we cleared the table and washed dishes, she asked if I liked a particular serving bowl. I said I did. She replied, “Great. It’s your wedding present.” It seems it was a family heirloom and came with a neat story. After 40 years of marriage, I still have the bowl and a story I never hesitate to tell. Treasure those old gifts. They can be quite special in years to come. -- Lucky Niece To all our Muslim readers: Happy Eid.
