WOW Trail to be rebranded Belknap Co. Rail Trail? County administrators believe quicker pace would result from regionalizing rec trail building effort BY ROGER AMSDEN FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — County Adminstrator Debra Shackett and County Finance Director Glen Waring are working on a project which will formulate a strategic plan for rebranding a 15-mile recreation trail being built from Tilton through Laconia as the Belknap County Rail Trail. Shackett told commissioners Wednesday

morning that she and Waring are doing the project as part of the process of becoming certified public managers and are looking to increase public awareness of the project in order to assist non-profit associations working to build the trails. She said that currently there are at least three major groups working on different parts of the project, the WOW Trail group in Laconia; the Winnipesaukee River Trail

Association which has completed two segments of the trail extending from downtown Franklin to Rte. 140 in Tilton, and BRATT, (Belmont Recreational Alternative Transportation Team) which is working on a section of the trail which runs from Silver Lake to the Belmont-Laconia town line. The application to the New Hampshire CPM Project notes that for years each of see TRAILS page 11

7-year-old Colorado girl recovers from bubonic plague

DENVER (AP) — The parents of 7-year-old Sierra Jane Downing thought she had the flu when she felt sick days after camping in southwest Colorado. It wasn’t until she had a seizure that her father knew something was seriously wrong and rushed her to a hospital in their town of Pagosa Springs. She had a 107-degree fever, and doctors were baffled by the cause. “I didn’t know what was going on. I just reacted,” Sean Downing said. “I thought she died.” The Downings eventually learned their daughter was ill with one of the last things they would’ve thought: bubonic plague, a disease that wiped out one-third of Europe in the 14th century but is now exceedingly rare — it hasn’t been confirmed in Colorado since 2006 — and treatable if caught early. Federal health officials say they are aware of two other confirmed and one probable case of plague in the U.S. so far this year — an aversee PLAGUE page 10

Bill Clinton: ‘Winner-take-all or all in this together?’ CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — President Barack Obama inherited a wreck of an economy, “put a floor under the crash” and laid the foundation for millions of good new jobs, former President Bill Clinton declared Wednesday night in a Democratic National Convention appeal aimed at millions of hard-pressed Americans yet to decide how to vote. “If you want a you’re-on-your-own, winner-take-all society, you should support the Republican ticket,” Clinton said. “If you want a country of shared prosperity

and shared responsibility — a we’re-all-inthis-together society — you should vote for Barack Obama and Joe Biden.” Obama’s high command released the remarks before Clinton’s appearance as they struggled to bury the news of an embarrassing retreat on the party platform. Under criticism from Republican challenger Mitt Romney, they abruptly rewrote the day-old document to insert a reference to God and to declare that Jerusalem “is and will remain the capital of Israel.” Some delegates objected loudly, but Los Angeles

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, presiding in the largely-empty hall, ruled them outvoted. White House aides said Obama had personally ordered the changes. The episode was an unwanted intrusion for Democratic officials, who scripted the evening to showcase Clinton, popular 12 years after he left office with the budget in balance and now their unofficial ambassador-in-chief to anxious voters in a tough economy. “In Tampa the Republican argument see DEMOCRATS page 13

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — President Barack Obama’s decision Wednesday to scrap plans to accept his Democratic nomination before a massive crowd outdoors was as much about trying to mitigate political risk in a key battleground state as it was about public safety. His party blamed severe weather forecasts in announcing that Obama would host the final night of his convention

indoors instead of at a 74,000-seat football stadium. But Democrats also worried Obama’s leadership would be questioned and he would anger voters in the closely contested state if changed venues at the last minute or held a rain-soaked event. Republicans dismissed the Democrats explanation, arguing that Obama didn’t have enough support to fill Bank of America Stadium in a state that he’s struggling to win.

Obama squeaked out a victory in North Carolina in 2008, but polls show him trailing Republican rival Mitt Romney two months from Election Day. The weather call means the president now will address a far smaller crowd indoors in the same hall where Democrats have gathered for the first two days of their convention. The Time Warner Cable Arena see OBAMA page 11

FRANKLIN, Tenn. (AP) — The Secret Service said Wednesday it is investigating the reported theft of copies of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s federal tax records during a break-in at an accounting office in Franklin. Someone claiming responsibility demanded $1 mil-

lion not to make them public. An anonymous letter sent to Romney’s accounting firm and political offices in Tennessee and published online sought $1 million in hard-to-trace Internet currency to prevent the disclosure of his tax filings, which have emerged as a key focus

during the 2012 presidential race. Romney released his 2010 tax returns and a 2011 estimate in January, but he has refused to disclose his returns from earlier years. Romney’s accounting firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers, said there was no evidence see ROMNEY page 8

‘Four more years’ of the same? “One question, Mr. President,” read the words on the front cover of this week’s Economist, behind a silhouette of the back of Barack Obama’s head, “just what would you do with another four years?” It’s a good question, and one that’s still open as Barack Obama prepares to deliver his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention in rainstorm-plagued Charlotte Thursday night. Other presidents seeking re-election have usually provided a more or less convincing answer. George W. Bush said he would try to reform Social Security and advance energy independence. Bill Clinton said he would provide “a bridge to the twenty-first century,” which turned out to include significant tax cuts and a lunge toward Medicare reform. Bush failed to deliver on Social Security, and Clinton failed to deliver on Medicare, but both tried to pivot from a first-term to a second-term agenda. The first George Bush, in contrast, didn’t seem to pivot. He gave the impression he’d just keep going on. That wasn’t good enough for voters. Obama similarly has not pivoted. Unlike Clinton, he did not shift ground when his party was rejected in the off-year election. For a second term he has been calling for more infrastructure stimulus, more unionized teachers and (though he has said it’s harmful in a time of economic sluggishness) higher tax rates on high earners. Republican strategist Karl Rove had a bit of fun with this last week in his Wall Street Journal column, imagining how a more moderate and compromising Obama would be running well ahead now, as Clinton was at this point in 1996. Instead, the Obama campaign, with assists from mainstream media and during the months it had a money advantage, has concentrated on demonizing Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. Clinton did this with great effect on Bob Dole in 1996. It hasn’t worked so well this time. The Democrats’ other strategy is to rouse the enthusiasm of their various disparate constituencies. This hasn’t worked for an incumbent Democrat since Harry Truman in 1948. But it is something you fall back on given the nature of the Democratic Party. The Republicans have always had a core constituency of people considered by themselves and others as typical Americans — Northern Protestants in the 19th century, white married Christians today — who are by themselves less

than a majority. The Democratic Party has typically been a coalition of out-groups — white Southerners and big city Catholics in the 19th century. Today, the coalition includes blacks and to a lesser extent Hispanics, unmarried women, members of the Millennial generation, public employee union members and, most important, the group that demographer Joel Kotkin dubbed gentry liberals. They don’t always agree. Blacks tend to oppose same-sex marriage, while gentry liberals strongly favor it. Labor unions want the Keystone pipeline, while environmentalists want to kill it. Other difficulties have surfaced. Democrats to their surprise find themselves on the defensive on Medicare, needing to explain why they took $716-billion from it and gave it to the still unpopular Obamacare. Late in the game, Obama decided to rope in Bill Clinton to give a big convention speech Wednesday night. In effect, he’s trying to suggest his second four years will look like Clinton’s. In the meantime, there is evidence that the Democratic Party brand, to use marketing term, is in trouble. Pollster Scott Rasmussen periodically estimates party identification on the basis of thousands of robocall interviews of likely voters. His findings have been uncannily close to the exit polls. In the last quarter of 2008, his party ID numbers were 41-percent Democratic, 33-percent Republican. The 2008 exit poll showed Democrats ahead in party ID by 39 to 32-percent. In the third quarter of 2010, Rasmussen pegged party ID as tied at 35-percent. The 2010 exit poll showed it exactly the same. The third quarter of 2012 is not yet over. But the Rasmussen party ID numbers for the second and third quarters combined are ominous for Obama’s party: 34-percent Democratic, 36-percent Republican. Republicans are up only 3-percent from 2008, but Democrats are down 7-percent. The partisan playing field has changed a lot since 2008. But Obama’s policies have not. There has been no pivot. It will be interesting to see how loudly and often the delegates cheer, “Four more years!” (Syndicated columnist Michael Barone is senior political analyst for The Washington Examiner, is a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, a Fox News Channel contributor and co-author of The Almanac of American Politics.)

LETTERS I hope to thank each of you personally, not enough space here To the editor, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You! These words will never be enough to express my deepest gratitude for the absolute outpouring of goodwill, warm wishes and friendship that so many of you have shown me over the month since my motorcycle accident in Nebraska. Accidents are unfortunate enough and when they happen so far from home, it can be even more challenging to remain optimistic. This wasn’t the case for me at all thanks to all of you who took the time to reach out to me. From the balloons to the flowers to the cards to the daily phone calls — the middle of Nebraska felt as much like home as any place surrounded with friends and family could be. To those of you who took the time to go way out of your way to drive or ride motorcycles to see me in the hospital — thank you! You have no idea how healing it is to see familiar faces. Thank you to my friends at our local newspapers, especially The Laconia Daily Sun, Citizen and Union Leader for frequently checking in on me and reporting back to your readers. I also want to thank Governor Lynch for personally calling me several times

to check in on me. All of my Amtrak friends — especially the Chicago crew (T.O.M.A) that welcomed me home and ensured my safe and comfortable travel home-thank you! Traveling cross-country on a motorcycle certainly has lots of occasions for surprises, and I’ve had my fair share of them but more importantly, it offers a unique opportunity to make friends in a variety of places and through a variety of circumstances. The friendship and concern shown to me from across the country has re-instilled my faith in people and in our motorcycle community. I hope to be able to thank each of you, my friends, in person because I certainly don’t have enough space here to do so properly. Being home in Laconia is a gift and for that blessing, I will be eternally grateful. Though I didn’t make it to Sturgis for my consecutive 37th year in August, I do plan on finishing my trip this spring and memories of the support and friendship shown to me through this will be the sun and wind on my back the whole way. Charlie St. Clair Laconia

GOP budget is based on work of president’s own commission To the editor, I have to ask Paul Bonneville what he is talking about in his attack on Romney and Ryan. You make it sound like Mitt Romney doesn’t believe in the conservative principles that this country was founded on. You insinuate that Mitt Romney will do whatever it takes to become president, much like Obama did. You talk about the “Nuns on the Bus” group of Catholic nuns that traveled across the country speaking against the Paul Ryan budget plan that passed the House of Representatives. Of course this tour, which was paid for in part by the nonpartisan Corporation for Public Broadcasting with tax dollars. This is some of the waste that the budget is trying to stop. Of course the talking points that Sister Simone Campbell brought out were based on lies from Nancy Pelosi about what is really in the budget. This budget is based on the President’s Commission on Debt Reduction

that he refused to implement any portion of. What this budget does is reduce the tax rates for everyone and every business and eliminate the tax loopholes that benefit the wealthy like the deductions for second homes, yachts and airplanes. This budget strengthens the middle class and reduces the government’s dependency on borrowed money from China. It strengthens Social Security and Medicare so it will be there well into the future. It strengthens the safety net for Americans and increases revenues so the stifling debt Obama has put us into can be reduced. If President Obama touted the Simpson/Boles commission so much then why didn’t he implement any of their recommendations to reduce debt? Could it be that he wants all the extra money he can get so he can buy votes in deals like Solyndra? Greg Knytych New Hampton

LETTERS What will happen if Gilford fire truck is voted down? Nothing!

It’s not up to the teacher to convince a kid to do well in school

To the editor, What has changed since the people of Gilford voted down the new fire truck last March? Absolutely NOTHING! The voters of Gilford need to only ask themselves one question: when they pull back the curtain and vote on the fire truck next week, what will happen if this is voted down? The answer: absolutely NOTHING. You don’t have a back up truck now and you won’t have one for nearly a year after the vote. This is an undisputed fact. Whatever temporary measure that is in place for the next nine to 10 months will certainly work a few more months, or even longer. If we wait until later this fall we can actually attempt to have a dialogue as to whether or not the tiny town of Gilford actually needs a fire truck, valued at roughly $450,000, on standby for use when the front line truck needs repair. To the point, the BOFE didn’t bother to fix the old truck. If it were

To the editor, I made the mistake of reading the “letters to the editor” today, something I try not to do because of letters like Tony Boutin’s from Aug 31st. A giant, uneducated, ultra right-wing-minded rant about teachers was all it was. I’m sure he is just trying to bait people like me into writing back. Well, it worked. Mr. Boutin’s style and method of writing is embarrassing to himself and other people who are truly “conservative”. I bet if you did have kids you were not writing these kind of derogatory letters while they were in school. Only 20 or so years ago, I finished high school, then college, and what I seem to remember is “you get out what you put in”. If I tried hard, I got an “A”. If I didn’t try hard, I got a bad grade. I never blamed any teacher, like you are doing. Do you blame a police officer and their union if someone commits a crime or speeds? Crime keeps happening even though we hire more and more police officers. You say we have a lot more teachers now, that they are overpaid because of unions (?), and they are failing our kids. What about the parents of those kids? Parents have to care and so do the kids if they are going to do well. It’s not up to the teachers to convince a kid to do well in school, and ultimately, life. Maybe you missed your calling and should have become a teacher since you seem

really an emergency wouldn’t they have at least fixed it? The Gilford Board of Fire Engineers has created this whole debacle and wasted piles of taxpayer dollars to create the illusion of an emergency. And why? Because they simply couldn’t stand the idea of the people saying NO! They knew that it would be far easier to attack any dissenting view, inflame the firemen by making it seem like any dissenting opinion was a personal attack on their performance, and get a judge to agree with them because a judge isn’t that intimate with any communities business. Any judge would simply let the people decide. The voters of Gilford already decided and can once again remind them that NO means NO! The need for a new truck can be better discussed without the pressure of time. Especially since no real time restraint exists. Terry Stewart Gilford

Let’s think about what life was like in glory days of small govt. To the editor, The following is a well written letter from a woman in Tacoma, Washington that reflects my experience. The writer is my age, 86. New thinking is necessary, but we can not ignore the good of our history. “It’s too bad that young Paul Ryan was not around to enjoy the glory days of really small government. In 1929 my father, an engineer, lost his job when his company abruptly cancelled plans for an oil refinery. There was no severance pay, no job retraining, no unemployment insurance, no welfare. It was, “Pack up your slide rule and go home.” We survived by my father taking any work he could find, from fighting wildfires to digging ditches, and by my grandparents’ vegetable garden and chicken house. There was no Social Security for them, nor Medicare. One good thing, in those days you did not lose medical benefits if

you lost your job — there were none. Health care was simple: if you could afford it, you got it, if not, you put it off with sometimes fatal results. Ryan mentions his three small children, has he asked his grandparents if they feared losing children to measles, whooping cough, or polio? Should the government really be involved in something like research or the Center for Infectious Diseases? Are there savings to be had there? If Ryan had been the small business man he likes to invoke, he would have found that if his customers could not pay their bills, neither could he. His bank could not extend a loan because it had closed, and his savings in it were gone. F.D.I.C. is so big government. We can probably do with a lot less government if we are willing to go backwards, but it would probably not save much money, as we would be a third world economy.” Kent Warner, Center Harbor

to know how to fix all the educational system’s problems. Yes, there are more teachers than there used to be (obviously). The population is greater than it used to be, and is still growing. As a matter of fact, it seems as though we have more of every kind of job title due to population, etc. What a surprise. I do agree that unions don’t belong everywhere, but your obvious hatred of them shows. Maybe you are angry because you didn’t pass the test to get into the power/phone company or maybe the police or civil service. Who knows. As a proud, hard working union member, I personally feel that better pay and benefits are a good thing, especially for my local economy, which is where I spend my money. You’ll find most union members do their best to build and buy USA. Also, maybe you don’t realize that if it wasn’t for unions, most Americans, union or not, would be not benefit from things like paid overtime (instead of being told to work nights and weekends or your fired), safe work places, vacation time, and insurance. P.S. Someone please tell Mr. Boutin his CAPS LOCK keeps getting stuck on every other word in his letters. On second thought, he can just blame his writing teacher for that. Martin Carney Sandwich

Youssef understands importance of friendly business climate To the editor, Energetic, focused and principled are qualities found in Josh Youssef.

LETTERS We need Barnstead rep with proven record of serving all of us To the editor, New Hampshire’s new redistricting gives every town the opportunity to elect a state representative who will represent the interests of town residents. Having lived in Barnstead for 50 years as both a seasonal and fulltime resident, I understand the wide variety of issues that Barnstead has faced during that time. We need a representative in Concord who knows all our citizens and all our issues. Elaine Swinford has done a superb job of representing the residents of Barnstead, along with all of Belknap County, during her two terms as a state representative. In her capacity as overseer of Public Welfare in Barnstead, she balances the needs of its citizens with the town’s budget needs by helping those who receive services to get back on their feet. Elaine is available 24 hours a day to any resident who needs help. In order to provide a food pantry in town, Elaine created the thrift shop to minimize the financial impact on the town budget. As the Legislative representative on the Barnstead Development Group, she is working to expand business opportunities in Barnstead that will help increase our commercial tax base. We need representatives in Concord who will get the job done, not just talk about what should happen. As a state representative, Elaine has never

missed a session or a committee day. When a tough decision needs to be made, Elaine has demonstrated that she will make it and take the time to understand the big picture and its impact on our citizens. In her capacity as chairman of Criminal Justice and Public Safety, she has demonstrated the need to understand the total impact on budgets when voting rather than just cutting dollars without understanding the unintended consequences. In one vote that appeared to cause an increase in the budget, the reality was that she avoided an expensive law suit that the state could not afford and could not win. The end result was a significant savings. Elaine is respected for her active leadership role in the House as she works to unify all House Republicans around major bills and issues. We need a representative from Barnstead with a proven track record of serving all of our citizens. Elaine Swinford has proven her dedication to Barnstead in her volunteerism in town over the past 11 years as well as in Concord. I urge you to vote for someone with a proven track record and send Elaine Swinford back to Concord to represent those of us who live in Barnstead. Jan Face Glassman Center Barnstead

To the editor, Since Dr. Racicot mentioned my name — now remember, he started this exchange — I stand ready to respond to any spokesperson for Bill Grimm. Grimm does not like being challenged by facts. Yes Doctor, my candidate, Josh Youseff, who passed my tough questioning on issues important to me (100-percent) asked me to speak on his behalf at the GOP candidate’s night. Taking a page out of “The Franklin Gang’s” playbook dirty personal attacks, one obviously is uninformed, Doc; I was there because, as Josh explained to Chairman Alan Glassman, is with his son on Wednesday evening each week. Perhaps only a divorced father would understand how important it is to have those few hours while your son spends the rest of the week with the mother. Should Grimm be elected, and not

with my vote (I have principles), will he be an inside lobbyist for LRGH? Doc, you mentioned that your guy is/ has been a member of the Board of Trustees — I didn’t say it, you did. It will be surprising if the press talks about what I brought forward two days ago during my radio program: Bill Grimm is terrible at math, and I question his integrity. How could he not remember a $1,000 donation from Craig Benson in July, among others; and now caught, he is quickly amending his Campaign Finance Report to the Secretary of State to reflect money Grimm “forgot” to include. Yes, District 7 could have a better candidate than one who does not answer questions re: issues (http://www.joshfornh. com/category/video/). Laconia has not had a state senator from Laconia since 1960, perhaps it is time. Niel Young Laconia

That’s a very naive view of how Holderness got back in District 2 To the editor, I write this letter in response to Kay M. Anderson’s recent letter to the editor. Ms. Anderson writes that it was Bob Lamb’s testimony in Concord that resulted in Holderness remaining in District 2, which enabled Plymouth State University to stay in tact and not be split between two districts. Ms. Anderson, however, failed to give credit to the many residents in Holderness who made telephone calls and wrote e-mails and letters to Senator Jeanie Forrester to request that Holderness remain in District 2. In fact, Senator Forrester went to leadership and asked them to reconsider the

vote on the plan. The vote was delayed one week so that the district could be redrawn and Holderness put back into District 2. You see, Ms. Anderson, Senator Forrester listens to her constituents. An e-mail from Senate President Peter Bragdon noted that “ We will be amending the redistricting plan to put Holderness back into District 2. Senator Forrester fought hard for that.” If Ms. Anderson believes that Bob Lamb single-handedly was responsible for Holderness being brought back into District 2, then she is extremely naive.

LETTERS Do people of District 7 want Main St. success or Wall Street math? To the editor, Recently, a supporter of Josh Youssef’s opponent wrote a letter in which he asked the people of District 7 to vote against Mr. Youssef because he felt that Josh is “unelectable”. Fortunately for the people of District 7, that is not for Mr. Racicot, (a resident of Sanbornton, which is outside of District 7) to decide, and nothing could be further from the truth. Josh Youssef was born and raised in Laconia and has a extensive background in business. At age 19, Josh opened his first small business and today owns the State of New Hampshire’s largest computer repair store, creating jobs right here in District 7. His deep local roots and small business experience means he understands what Main Street business owner need and knows how to implement the solutions which are needed to make it possible. In contrast, Bill Grimm offers an entirely different set of qualifications.

While Josh started his own business and has been creating jobs for over two decades, Mr. Grimm’s “business experience” consists of long tenures on Wall St. and at Bank of America, two areas that have shown a disturbing lack of integrity and which have manipulated the government to give them record profits. Mr. Grimm’s Wall Street tenure is evident in his fund raising reports, which are wrought with arithmetic issues (and according to some reports, fraud as well.) Ultimately, the choice is clear. Do the people of District 7 want Main Street business success, or Wall Street fuzzy math? Clear solutions, or a wait and see attitude? Principled conservative leadership, or a moderate followthe-leader RINO? Josh Youssef is a principled conservative leader with clear solutions for N.H., and I ask you to join me in voting for Josh Youssef on Sept 11th. Troy “Epic” Brown Laconia

In my opinion, Youssef is only conservative running for Senate 7 To the editor, I am enthusiastically endorsing Joshua Youssef for the N.H. State Senate Seat District 7. As a former member of the State Republican Committee, former city chair of the Laconia GOP, and former City Councilor, I recognize Joshua Youssef has the talent to be a strong and effective leader. I have personally have known Joshua Youssef for 20 years. I’ve had the privilege of getting to know his family as well. I had his father, Fouad Youssef as a teacher in college. His grandmother Ann Stewart use to be the secretary at the Laconia Middle School, when I was there 30 years ago! I can’t leave out his mum, Susan Youssef and his siblings, Zach, Travis and Nadina. All good people! He has

deep roots to the Lakes Region. I’ve worked for Joshua Youssef in the past. He is a hard working father who always goes the extra mile. Joshua built his business from the ground up and will take this determination to solve New Hampshire’s problems. What about his politics? He is the only conservative in the race in my opinion. He is against a sales or income tax and took the tax pledge. He believes in the 2nd Amendment and will defend liberty. In other words, he understands what the role of the government should be, limited! Therefore, I urge you to vote for Joshua Youssef Dist. 7 NH State Senate in the Republican Primary on Sept 11th. Tom Brown, Jr. Laconia

Dick Green came through as much more moderate; I’ll vote for him To the editor, I would very much like the publisher of The Laconia Daily Sun to know how much this writer values the reporting of your paper’s Michael Kitch. In the Sept. 4th and 5th editions there were articles with his byline that supplied the information which I have been seeking to decide how I will vote in the Republican primary election. Tuesday’s “Wide philosophical gulf between Bolster & Cormier” cited candidate Jane Cormier as taking aim at Representative Peter Bolster’s voting record.”stressing that he has earned low marks from conservative organizations.” Specifically the House Republican Alliance rated Bolster at 56-percent, with Representative Alida Milham of Gilford scoring the lowest of all. In as much as the Republican Alliance seems to me to continually align itself with the most extreme right of Republicanism, the lower the Alli-

ance’s grade the more apt I am to cast my vote for the low scorers. Similarly, in Wednesday’s paper Kitch wrote “Alton, Barnstead & Gilmanton Republicans to help decide (Senate) primary contest ...” and I was able to learn that Representative Sam Cataldo, now running in the Senate primary against Dick Green, was awarded the high score of 88-percent by the Alliance. Eighty-eight almost demands an exclamation mark! As if that were not enough to determine my vote for “the other guy,” Kitch went on to outline the views of the two candidates on many of the economic and social issues troubling today’s voters. Green came through as much more the moderate of the two. Case closed, on to the polls next Tuesday! Bob Longabaugh Alton Bay

Let’s handle current backup fire truck in a lower cost manner To the editor, I have spent a lot of time on Gilford budgets and understand the replacement fire engine issue. Through the years I have been very supportive of the Fire Department. I don’t feel Gilford needs a new, first-line engine,

a backup at an age of nine years. Let’s handle the current backup in a lower cost manner and save some dollars to pay for the Fire Department’s list of planned expenditures over the next several years: e.g. fire boat, ambulance, pickup and station upgrades.

Still an issue between Belknap County Commissioners office & Registry of Deeds LACONIA — Belknap County Administrator Debra Shackett told commissioners Wednesday morning that a recently approved agreement with Belknap County Register of Deeds Barbara Luther that settled a long-standing dispute over accounting procedures isn’t being implemented. “One party isn’t living up to their end of the bargain,’’ Shackett told commissioners, who said that unless the agreement is being adhered to the county should return to court to seek compliance. But Luther says that she is at a loss to understand what the complaint is about. “I feel I have done everything requested of me. We made changes as of the first day of business in September, given them all the information from the office on a daily basis and written checks as the agreement asked for,’’ said Luther. The agreement specifies that all checks issued by the Registry of Deeds have to be signed by both the Registry of Deeds and the Belknap County treasurer and that’s where the problem lies, according to Shackett, who says that Luther apparently has a different understanding of the agreement than the county. She expressed confidence, however, that the new issue could be resolved. An August 27 press release from the county announced that the agreement between the two parties had been reached and Belknap County Commission Chairman Edward Philpot heralded it as “a true win for everyone involved but particularly the taxpayers and citizens of Belknap County”. The dispute began in May of last year when the county’s auditors issued what is known as a management letter which criticized three specific “material weaknesses” in the record keeping or handling of public funds as alleged in a lawsuit brought by the commissioners against the registrar as a result of those findings. ROMNEY from page 2 that any Romney tax files were stolen. “At this time there is no evidence that our systems have been compromised or that there was any unauthorized access to the data in question,” PricewaterhouseCoopers spokesman Chris Atkins said. In Washington, Secret Service spokesman Edwin Donovan confirmed the agency was investigating. The Romney campaign declined to comment, referring all questions to the accounting firm. Franklin police said there were no recent alarms or break-ins reported at the site. “We’ve had nothing from that address in August,” Police Lt. Charles J. Warner said. There was no sign of forced entry at the five-story building that housed the accounting firm’s local office, not far from the Cool Springs Galleria, a large mall about 20 miles south of Nashville. The building does not restrict access during business hours and has no guard. After-hours access to the doors

The criticisms included the fact that at times a single individual controlled “all phases of a particular (financial) activity” and certain record keeping processes. The management letter did not allege or imply any actual wrongdoing by the registry staff but dealt with improving procedures in keeping with modern accounting standards. When the parties and registrar could not agree on system changes to address the criticisms, the commissioners brought the lawsuit last October asking the Belknap County Superior Court to “order the (Registry) to conform with the recommendations of the management letter”. The county was represented in the matter by attorney Paul Fitzgerald and Belknap County Registrar Barbara Luther was represented by attorney Philip McLaughlin. Shackett explained that a mediation session was held in June of this year resulting in an agreement that successfully addressed the three criticisms contained in the management letter while providing the registry with a degree of autonomy that Ms. Luther had claimed was necessary under state law. The agreement allows the existing checking account used by the Register of Deeds to be continued and requires that any checks or withdrawals from that account be signed by the Register of Deeds and the Belknap County treasurer. It also establishes procedures for the daily handling of payments and operations at the office. Commissioners said the settlement is consistent with recommended best accounting practices and removes a negative comment from the county audit. Shackett joined Commissioner Philpot in emphasizing that the result of the lawsuit was a “win-win-win” situation in that the parties were spared the cost and distraction of further litigation and the citizens of Belknap County were receiving an improved and more transparent accounting system.

and elevators appear to be controlled by keycard. A spokeswoman for the building manager, Spectrum Properties, said the company would not speculate on the burglary claim. “All of the tenants operate independently and the building is highly secured,” the spokeswoman, Beth Courtney, said. The data theft was claimed in letters left with political party offices in Franklin and disclosed in several Tennessee-area newspapers. Jean Barwick, the executive director of the Williamson County Republic Party, said employees in the GOP office found a small package on Friday with a hand-written address. The package contained a letter and a computer flash drive, she said. Peter Burr, the chairman of the county’s Democratic Party, said he received a version of the letter and a thumb drive on Aug. 27. “I have no way of knowing this is real or not,” he said. “I doubt it is, but I suppose it’s conceivable.”

Winni Playhouse Masquerade will have ‘passengers’ taking a cruise on the Titanic LACONIA — The Winnipesaukee Playhouse invites guests to step back in time and come aboard the Titanic for the inaugural Playhouse Masquerade. The event will be held on Saturday, September 22 from 7-11 p.m. at the Lodge at Gunstock Mountain Resort. “Passengers” will experience the age of opulence and grace as they help support the Playhouse’s Capital Campaign. The Lodge at Gunstock will be transformed to represent the grandeur of the great ship. There will be food stations and passed hors d’ouevres with a menu suggestive of the food that was served in the upper class dining areas. The focus of the evening is to celebrate the culture of the era with appropriate food, clothing and entertainment, but also to honor the memory of the tragedy. To that end, each passenger will be issued an individualized passport connecting them to a real passenger on the Titanic and providing biographical information about that passenger. The entertainment will include music, dance and theatre performances representative of both what happened on the ship itself and the era in general. Actors have been hired to portray both famous and unknown passengers aboard the ship. Guests are requested, but certainly not required, to get into the spirit of the evening by dressing is period-appropriate costumes. Costume ideas and suggestions for where to rent or purchase costumes are available on the Playhouse’s website. Playhouse costumer, Lesley Pankhurst, who is on the event committee says, “in the theatre industry, costume and dress up play a huge part in what we do everyday. One of our board members noted

that while I may get to play with wigs and funny hats everyday if I want to, most people stop getting opportunities to dress up by the time they reach adulthood. He thought that it would be fun to give people the chance to show their creativity with a ‘grown up costume party’ and that’s where the idea for an annual Playhouse Masquerade came from. We decided it would be even more fun to make it a different theme each year and the 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s voyage seemed like a natural choice for this year.” The event committee is mindful that some guests may not want to dress in costume and that is fine too. Pankhurst says, “really, anything goes. There will be a wide range from women decked out in full upper class splendor to men in newsboy caps and suspenders. Our goal is to ensure that everyone has a great time, costumed or not. A suit and tie or a skirt and blouse would be perfectly appropriate.” Board Chairman Christopher Boothby says, “this won’t be a typical sit-down dinner fundraiser. Our goal is to produce a fun, interactive evening with ‘pop-up’ skits and sketches, varied kinds of entertainment and other surprises. We’ll keep guests on their toes!” The event is made possible by a generous donation from lead sponsor Bonnette, Page and Stone Corp. with additional support from Cross Insurance, Meredith Village Savings Bank and Gunstock Mountain Resort. The Playhouse is also appreciative of support received by WLNH and Divine Inspirations in Meredith. Tickets cost $75 per person and can be purchased online at www.winniplayhouse.org or call (603) 366-7377 for more details. Reservations are requested by Friday, September 14.

PLAGUE from page 2 age year. The other confirmed cases were in New Mexico and Oregon, and the probable case also was in Oregon. None were fatal. Plague is generally transmitted to humans through the bites of infected fleas but also can be transmitted by direct contact with infected animals, including rodents, rabbits and pets. Officials with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention acknowledged that a series of fright-

ening illnesses linked to insects and pests have been surfacing lately across the country, including mosquito-borne West Nile virus outbreaks in Texas and other states, deadly hantavirus cases linked to Yosemite National Park, and some scattered plague cases. But with some of the illnesses — like plague — this is not an unusually bad year; it’s just getting attention. And the number of cases of each disease is driven by different factors.

from preceding page of a $100 gift card. Next, the winner of a $500 gift card would be drawn. Finally, the ticket for the winner of the grand-prize, the 2012 Street-Glide. Perhaps caught up in the excitement of the moment, the first name to be drawn, Sarah Tillotson of Richford, Vt., was declared the grand prize winner. Anne Deli, owner of the dealership, found a generous compromise to ensure that all would leave the raffle happy: she gave both Tillotson and the rightful grand prize winner, Adam Wilson of Massena, N.Y., a brand-new motorcycle. The error did not affect the second-place winner, Gary Gagne. “While it was an honest mistake, we felt that it was important to maintain the integrity of this raffle and future non-profit partners and award two motorcycles — one to the person we announced on stage and another to the rightful winner,” said Anne Deli, owner of the dealership. “We are delighted that two people will enjoy the thrill of owning and riding a Harley.” The contribution will further the Winnipesaukee Playhouse’s Capital Campaign, a fund raising effort which will enable the continued renovation and expansion of the organization’s Meredith campus. In the last four years, Laconia Harley-Davidson has raised over $120,000 in support of New Hampshire nonprofits including the Loon Preservation Society, the New Hampshire Food Bank and now, The Winnipesaukee Playhouse. Laconia Harley-Davidson announced the motorcycle donation as a kick-off to Laconia Bike Week in June. Organizers expected to sell raffle tickets throughout the entire summer but support for the Playhouse was overwhelming. All 2,500 raffle tickets sold out in record time during Laconia Bike Week. “The support we received from Laconia HarleyDavidson was an amazing kick-start to our summer season, and a huge asset to our capital campaign,” said Winnipesaukee Playhouse executive director Bryan Halperin. “Construction is already underway on the new theatre and Laconia Harley-Davidson’s contribution will not only go a long way in helping us achieve our goals but also proves there is great support for our new theatre campus from the local business community.” The Winnipesaukee Playhouse is a nonprofit organization that develops and stages professional and community-based theatrical productions and provides year-round opportunities in theatre and the performing arts for the community. The Playhouse currently performs in an intimate Off-Broadway style theatre in a renovated store front in Laconia. The performance space has been praised by patrons for making them feel a part of the play, however with only 84 seats and an increasing demand for tickets and programming, the physical capacity of the space has prompted the organization to find ways to expand. The Playhouse is in the midst of a three-phased plan to create a state-of-the-art theatre campus in Meredith that will provide artistic and educational opportunities for the community and expand programming that will serve Lakes Region residents, businesses and visitors. “The Winnipesaukee Playhouse provides immense value to the community and the region — which goes far beyond providing high-quality performances,” said Deli, owner of Laconia Harley-Davidson. “Its leadership is dedicated to transforming the Lakes Region into a cultural destination — an effort that is taking shape. We are proud to support that vision and grateful for the generosity of our customers, staff and New Hampshire HOG Chapters who supported this campaign.”


Voters will be asked for ID on Tuesday but still allowed to vote if they do not present one By Michael Kitch

LACONIA — The enactment of the so-called “Voter ID” law earlier this year will require all New Hampshire voters to present photographic identification when they go to the polls in federal, state and local elections. The requirements of the law will be phased in over a period of time. Voters casting ballots in all elections before September 1, 2013, including the primary election on Tuesday, September 11, 2012 and the general election on Tuesday November 6, 2012 will be asked for a photo ID. One of the following will be required: a driver’s license, either current or expired, issued by any state; an ID card issued by the New Hampshire Division of Motor Vehicles; a United States Armed Services ID card; a United States passport, either current or expired; a valid photo ID issued by the federal government or by a state, county or municipal government; a valid student ID card; or other photo ID deemed legitimate by the supervisors of the checklist, the moderator or the clerk. In addition, a supervisor of the checklist, the moderator or the clerk familiar with a voter, who is without one of the above forms of photo ID may personally verify his or her identity. Before November 1, 2012, any voter without one of the approved forms of photo ID will be informed of

the requirements of the law and permitted to vote. In other words, voters without photo ID will be permitted to vote in the primary election on Tuesday, September 11, 2012. However, voters who fail to present an approved photo ID at elections after November 1, 2012 and before September 1, 2013, which includes the general election on Tuesday, November 6, 2012, will only be permitted to vote after completing a “challenged voter affidavit.” The affidavit is a sworn statement that reads: “I, ______________________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) under penalties of voter fraud, that I am the identical person whom I represent myself to be, that I am a duly qualified voter of this town (or ward), and have a legal domicile therein.” After November 1, 2012 all those who completed a “challenged voter affidavit” in order to vote in the general election will receive a letter from the New Hampshire Secretary of State requesting confirmation that they voted in the election. They will be given 90 days from the date of the postmark to respond in writing, If they do not respond within the prescribed 90 days, the New Hampshire Attorney General will conduct an investigation to determine if fraudulent votes were cast. For further information about the photo ID law or election procedures residents may contact the City Clerk, Mary Reynolds, at 527-1265. or visit City Hall.

TRAILS from page one the three groups have worked independently and no one has developed an overall strategic plan for the entire trail. Shackett foresees meeting several times with each group as well as holding joint meetings at which collaborative efforts could be developed to chart the most efficient process to complete the trail. She said the completed trail is seen as a big boost for tourism and outdoor activity and that the bike/ walking path will boost economic activity in the county while increasing property values. The first phase of the WOW Trail in Laconia, extending from the North Main Street to Lakeport Square was completed two years ago and the organization is currently working to raise funds for the second phase of the project, which would extend from the Laconia Railroad Station to the Belmont town line and is expected to cost about $900,000 . In Belmont , BRATT has raised $850,000, 80-per-

cent of which is coming from the N.H. DOT Transportation Enhancement Program, for a trail which will start at the Mosquito Bridge and run along Rte. 3 to Osborne’s Agway, where it will veer sharply up to the state-owned rail line which runs alongside Lake Winnisquam and traverse behind the Belknap Mall to the Belmont-Laconia town line. The Winnipesaukee River Trail has two completed segments, one which extends 3.1 miles from downtown Franklin to the Northfield train station and was completed in 2005, and a 2 mile segment from the train station to Rte. 140, which was completed two years ago. The Winnipesaukee River Trail Association is currently seeking to raise $50,000 in order to obtain $508,000 in federal funds for construction of a bridge across the Winnipesaukee River from Granite Street in Northfield to Knapp Road in Tilton, to complete what it calls ‘’the missing link’’ on that section of the rail trail.

OBAMA from page one will be set up for about 15,000 people — mostly official convention participants — when Obama speaks. That’s just slightly larger than the president’s biggest crowd this election cycle, though an audience of millions will be watching on television. Vice President Joe Biden will also speak Thursday at the indoor arena. Republicans, who canceled the first day of their convention due to weather in Tampa, Fla., accused Democrats of downgrading their events because of

low enthusiasm. “You can’t believe a thing this administration says,” said former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu, a Romney backer. “Their campaign promised you rain or shine the president would be speaking there. Then when they couldn’t get a crowd, they brought it inside. I think those facts speak for themselves.” Democratic officials had said earlier this week that Obama would speak outside if it were raining, but not in the event of severe weather.

Myers says Supreme Court decision on retirement system pass down costs won’t effect local tax burdens any further BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — City Manager Scott Myers said yesterday that the decision by the New Hampshire Supreme Court upholding legislation that first reduced and then eliminated the state’s share of the employer contribution to the New Hampshire Retirement System for municipal and school district employees would have no further impact on the municipal budget. Myers said that the state reduced its contribution from 35-percent to 30-percent in 2009 and from 30-percent to 25-percent in 2010 and then eliminated it altogether. Both the city and the school district incorporated the increased cost of employer retirement contributions in their budgets, budgeting to pay the entire employer contribution beginning on July 1, 2011. The only future effect, he said, would be the annual increase in the employer contribution. Myers said that the Board of Trustees of the New Hampshire Retirement System typically sets the rates for the next fiscal year, which begins in July, in September or October. AMBULANCE from page one selectman still serving who was on the board when the decision was made in 2011 to take a new ambulance purchase to the voters. He said he was not initially in favor of a new ambulance when first approached by the former Fire Chief John DeSilva until he was convinced by him and his command staff that the 2004 truck was “junk.” He said at the time, selectmen were told it was “breaking down daily” and, armed with that information, he and former Selectman Andrew Livernois, changed their positions on buying a new ambulance early and worked to convince the Budget Committee and the electorate that buying it “out-of-rotation” was the right thing to do. “I cannot in good conscious go against the will of the people,” Nickerson said. In favor of keeping the 2004 ambulance in service is Selectman Karen Ober. She said she initially was of the opinion that Sanbornton was a one-ambulance town but, after realizing how much money the town had spent keeping the 2004 ambulance operating and learning that it is repaired and working properly, she said it didn’t make sense to get rid of it.

The City of Concord, along with Belknap County and the Mascenic Regional School District, brought suit against the state claiming that the legislation violated the constitutional prohibition against unfunded mandates. Part 1, Article 28-a of the Constitution stipulates that the state “shall not mandate or assign any new, expanded or modified programs or responsibilities to any political subdivision in such a way as to necessitate additional local expenditures by the political subdivision unless such programs are fully funded by the state.” Although the justices acknowledged the increase in local expenditures, they held that an increase, in and of itself, did not amount to an expanded responsibility, which would require “some substantive change to an underlying function, duty or activity performed or to be performed by local government.” The increased contribution paid by municipalities, counties and school districts is estimated to have raised local expenditures by $9-million in 2010, $18-million in in 2011 and $59-million in 2012, all of it funded by property taxes.

Ober also pointed out that if the new ambulance is busy or out-of-service for maintenance, the department still has to respond with a fire truck and two EMTs. The problem, she said, is that towns are only reimbursed for patients who are transported and, without a second ambulance, a different agency will take the patient to the hospital, despite the Sanbornton response. She also said that since the 2004 ambulance was finally fixed, it’s maintenance costs have been minimal. “We spent $30,000 to fix this thing,” she said, calling it a “paid-for asset.” Breaking the tie was Selectman Guy Giunta who said he’s spent the last two weeks worrying about the issue. “Bottom line, I just cannot go against a warrant article,” he said, adding that if the topic of being a two-ambulance town was part of the decision in 2011, the discussion at the annual town meeting would have been a very different one. Giunta also referenced a legal opinion given to selectmen by town atty. Christopher Boldt who advised there was no provision or appropriation for operating a second ambulance and he recommended the board should adhere to the wishes of annual town meeting. Giunta also said that his vote had nothing to do with the individuals who worked for the Fire Department and his decision was not to be interpreted as a lack of faith in them or what they do for the town.

3 openings remain for LPD’s Citizen Academy LACONIA — Their ages range from 86 to 18-years old and they come from many different walks of life, but they all have one common interest — to learn how a city police department really operates. This year 13 residents have signed up for the sixth Laconia Police Department’s Citizen’s Academy and Capt. Matt Canfield said they still have three spots available for those who are interested. “Our goal is to connect with the community. For people to get to know us, what we do and why we do it,” Canfield said yesterday. According to various Internet sites, cities as diverse as Calgary, Alberta, Canada to Miami, Fla. offer police academies to interested citizens. Each city has its own program tailored to suit the particulars of each city, and Laconia’s participants learn the basics of police work in three-hour-long classes over a 10-week period — each designed to teach a different facet of what policing in Laconia is like. According to Canfield and Lt. Richard Simmons, some Laconia Police Academy graduates have gone on to careers in law enforcement and many other graduates are now participating as volunteer civilian counselors working with police and local social service agencies to help crime victims. This year’s classes will be taught by a number of different Laconia Police officers — each with his or her own specialty or field of assignment. For example, Capt. William Clary — the head of the administrative arm of the department — will discuss the internal complaint process and the

professional standards Laconia Police Officers are required to maintain. Officer Kevin Shortt and his K-9 “Jagger” will present a explanation of canine policing and Sgt. Dennis Ashley will teach a segment on bicycle patrols and their use in downtown and the Weirs sections of town. Ashley is the only Law Enforcement Bicycle Association certified police bicycle instructor in New Hampshire and his annual classes are widely attended by police from all over New England. Prosecutor Jim Sawyer will present an overview of the laws of search and seizure and arrest, while Sgt. Michael Finogle and Patrol Officer Holly Callanan will talk about traffic control and impaired driving. One of the classes also discusses domestic violence and Officer Kendra Neri assisted by representative from New Beginnings Crisis Center and the Child advocacy Center will conduct it. Other classes include use of force, high-risk exposure and Chief Chris Adams will discuss crime trends in Laconia. Participants will also be given tours of the Police Department and the Belknap County House of Corrections. Opportunities for an 8-hour ride-along with a certified officer will be offered. Anyone interested in taking the class, which is on Tuesdays from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the community room of the Police Department, should contact the Laconia Police Department at 524-5252 and ask for Lt. Rich Simmons or Capt. Matt Canfield. — Gail Ober

DEMOCRATS from page 2 against the president’s re-election was pretty simple: ‘We left him a total mess, he hasn’t finished cleaning it up yet, so fire him and put us back in,’” Clinton said in advance excerpts. “I like the argument for President Obama’s reelection a lot better. He inherited a deeply damaged economy, put a floor under the crash, began the long hard road to recovery and laid the foundation for a more modern, more well-balanced economy that will produce millions of good new jobs, vibrant new businesses, and lots of new wealth for the innovators.” Obama arrived in his convention city earlier in the day. His formal nomination to a second term in office followed Clinton’s speech on the evening program, and his acceptance speech will mark the convention finale on Thursday night. Clinton’s speech marked the seventh convention in a row he has spoken to party delegates, and the latest twist in a relationship with Obama that has veered

from frosty to friendly. The two men clashed in 2012, when Obama outran Hillary Rodham Clinton’s wife for the Democratic presidential nomination. Clinton, then a New York senator, now Obama’s Secretary of State, was in East Timor as the party met half a world away. She made a cameo appearance on the huge screens inside the Time Warner Cable Arena, though, turning up in a video that celebrated the 12 Democratic women senators currently in office. Whatever the past differences between presidents current and past, Obama and his top aides looked to Clinton as the man best able to vouch for him when it comes to the economy, his largest impediment to re-election. As a group, white men favor Romney over Obama, according to numerous polls, but a Gallup survey taken in July showed 63 percent of them view the former president favorably, to 32 percent who see him in unfavorable terms.

Hands Across the Table receives donation from Meredith Village Savings Bank MEREDITH — The Meredith Village Savings Bank Fund (MVSB Fund) has announced a $2,500 grant to Hands Across the Table — a community outreach program that feeds up to 150 local residents each Tuesday evening. “We are so thankful for this award from the MVSB Fund,” said Joyce Ringleb, who chairs the organization. “After only four months of operation, we were often at capacity and found it necessary to increase our funding. This grant from the MVSB Fund helped us purchase the food we needed to continue providing the only complete meal that most of our patrons eat during the week. We wouldn’t have made it through the past year

without such generous contributions from our community. “ Hands Across the Table is a non-profit organization based in Laconia with a mission to provide good food and fellowship to the local community. With the help of volunteers, they serve a healthy meal, on real plates at tables set up with tablecloths and flowers. A diverse group of patrons in the Laconia area attend the dinner each week, including at least 25 children each week. The award to Hands Across the Table is one of 32 grants totaling $78,762 awarded by the MVSB Fund in the most recent grant cycle. Applications for the next set of grants are due by October 15, 2012. More information can be found at www.mvsb.com.

Sanbornton Congregational Church members and visitors putting a puzzle together on Sunday SANBORNTON — At the Sanbornton Congregational Church, Sunday, September 9 will not be called “Rally Sunday,” “Homecoming Sunday” or “Kick-off Sunday.” What name will the congregation choose for this day, when Sunday School classes resume and Fall ministries begin? Two suggestions from the pastor are “Faith Formation Sunday” and “New Beginnings Sunday.” In preparation for this special Sunday, Rev. Ruth Martz has given or sent out blank puzzle pieces to church members, children, and friends, who are asked to write or draw on their pieces and then bring them to worship on September 9. The puzzle will be placed in front of the pulpit, for each person to add his or her piece through September 23. Extra puzzle pieces will be available for visitors and newcomers. In the church’s newsletter, the pastor

wrote: “The puzzle will be put together as a symbol of our united commitment as the Sanbornton Congregational Church, UCC, to “New Beginnings” and “Faith Formation.” Together, we will create a beautiful image of color and words, with the pieces fitting together well. Any missing pieces will remind us of the ongoing work that we are called to do as Christ’s disciples, serving and reaching out to others in love. Jesus proclaimed that the kingdom of God is both here among us and not yet here, not yet fully realized. We gather together to discover and renew our passion for the specific ministries that develop our gifts in service to the world. So let us come together for Worship at 10 a.m. September. 9th, with hearts filled with joy, eager to grow in our faith, and ready to follow God’s vision for the church.” Church and contact information may be found online at www.uccsanbornton.org

Melcher & Prescott employees donate 150 days of service to the community In celebration of 150 years, Melcher and Prescott Insurance is donating 150 days of volunteerism to the Lakes Region. On August 13 Melcher and Prescott volunteers helped staff at Laconia Early Learning Center (a Lakes Region Child Care program) put their new cribs together. With support from The Bank of NH, Agnes M. Lindsay Trust, and the WLNH Children’s Auction, the Lakes Region Child Care Services was able to replace all of their cribs, in response to a change in federal standards. Lakes Region Child Care Services currently operates child care centers in Laconia, Belmont and Plymouth and before-and-after school care at Laconia and Belmont Elementary Schools. LRCCS was named 2012 Child Care of the Year by the Department of Children, Youth, and Families. (Courtesy photo)

by Darby Conley

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis doing. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll see people constantly during this busy day. You’ll move in and out of environments, always saving some of your energy for the next meeting. Make notes as you go because you’re not likely to remember all of the details. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Someone will recognize your talent. This person also may have an opinion as to which way you should take your gifts. It’s worth a listen, but if a ride on the bandwagon is offered, don’t jump. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Take action, and you’ll also be taking control. Take responsibility, and you’ll also be taking ownership. Take offense, and you’ll also be taking time and energy away from your success mission. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If someone badmouths another person, they will, if given a reason, do the same to you. Your wise instincts kick in. You recognize and avoid toxic people and behaviors. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It’s true that you’re adept at reading body language, but that’s not the entire reason you’re hyper-aware of someone’s opinion of you (even though the person never voices it). You also can read minds. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 6). You respond well to challenge and will do amazing things under pressure in 2013. Capricorn and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 2, 15, 49, 3 and 10.

by Chad Carpenter

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll awaken with a new perspective. It’s been a while since you were this objective about your own life. When you really think about it, you rather like where you’ve landed. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You may have to explain this to someone: Just because you are privy to information doesn’t mean it’s yours. It belongs to the person who gave it to you and is not to be given away to another. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your awareness will be heightened. You won’t assume that everyone is looking out for everyone else. You’ll look out for you and yours. Sometimes you have to be your own biggest fan. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re excellent at operating with your team. You try to see things as your team members might see them. Also, you’ll have the overriding sense that you are stronger together than you are apart. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll show people that you care and demonstrate exemplary character through simple matters of respect -- for instance, turning off your phone to give your full attention to the people you’re with. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll experience an increased sense of purpose, and yet your purpose may be strangely difficult to put into words. Try anyhow. The exercise will focus you powerfully. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). No one will give you time for reflection; it’s something you’ll have to steal. Decide how you’re going to spend your time, and let everyone know what you’re

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, September 6, 2012— Page 19

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Thursday, Sept. 6, the 250th day of 2012. There are 116 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 6, 1997, a public funeral was held for Princess Diana at Westminster Abbey in London, six days after her death in a car crash in Paris. On this date: In 1757, the Marquis de Lafayette, the French hero of the American Revolution, was born in Auvergne, France. In 1861, Union forces led by Gen. Ulysses S. Grant occupied Paducah, Ky., during the Civil War. In 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.) In 1916, the first self-service grocery store, Piggly Wiggly, was opened in Memphis, Tenn., by Clarence Saunders. In 1948, Princess Juliana of the Netherlands was inaugurated as queen, two days after the abdication of her mother, Queen Wilhelmina. 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 Londonbound 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. In 1991, the Soviet Union recognized the independence of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. Russian lawmakers upheld a decision by residents of Leningrad to restore the city’s pre-revolutionary name, St. Petersburg. One year ago: A man with a rifle opened fire in an IHOP restaurant in Carson City, Nev., killing three of five uniformed National Guard members and a woman having breakfast with her husband; gunman Eduardo Sencion also shot himself and died in the parking lot. Convoys of Moammar Gadhafi loyalists, including his security chief, fled Libya, crossing the Sahara into Niger. Today’s Birthdays: Comedian JoAnne Worley is 75. Country singer David Allan Coe is 73. Rock singer-musician Roger Waters (Pink Floyd) is 69. Actress Swoosie Kurtz is 68. Comedian-actress Jane Curtin is 65. Country singer-songwriter Buddy Miller is 60. Country musician Joe Smyth (Sawyer Brown) is 55. Actor-comedian Jeff Foxworthy is 54. Actor-comedian Michael Winslow is 54. Rock musician Perry Bamonte is 52. Actor Steven Eckholdt is 51. Rock musician Scott Travis (Judas Priest) is 51. Pop musician Pal Waaktaar (a-ha) is 51. Rock musician Kevin Miller is 50. Country singer Mark Chesnutt is 49. Actress Betsy Russell is 49. Actress Rosie Perez is 48. Rhythm and blues singer Macy Gray is 45. Singer CeCe Peniston is 43. Rhythm-and-blues singer Darryl Anthony (Az Yet) is 43. Actress Daniele Gaither is 42.

NOTICE OF FORECLOSURE

By virtue of the power of sale provisions contained in a certain mortgage from Linda R. Gilbert to Paul Batakis, Trustee of 240 Newbury Street Realty Trust, dated January 12, 2012, recorded in the Belknap County Registry of Deeds in Book 2749, Page 609, for breach of the conditions of the mortgage and for the purposes of foreclosing said mortgage, the Mortgagee will sell at PUBLIC AUCTION on 14 September 2012, at 2:00 PM at the property located at 23 Magnolia Lane, Belmont, Belknap County, New Hampshire. A copy of the original Promissory Note and Mortgage may be examined by any interested person at the Patrick Wood Law Office, PLLC, 555 Main Street, Laconia, NH 03246, between the hours of 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM during the business week.

To the Mortgagor, Linda R. Gilbert, or any other person claiming a lien or encumbrance against the Mortgaged Premises: You are hereby notified that you have a right to petition the Superior Court for the county in which the Mortgaged Premises are situated, with service upon the Mortgagee, and upon such bond as the court may require, to enjoin the scheduled foreclosure sale. Failure to institute such petition and complete such service upon the Mortgagee conducting the sale prior to sale shall thereafter bar any action or right of action of the Mortgagor based on the validity of the foreclosure.

Terms of sale: To qualify to bid, bidders other than the Mortgagee must place $5,000.00 on deposit with the Mortgagee’s attorney, by certified check payable without endorsement to Patrick Wood Law Office, PLLC, Trust Account, or other form of payment acceptable to the Mortgagee prior to the commencement of the foreclosure sale.

A copy of the memorandum shall be available for inspection prior to commencement of the foreclosure sale. The successful bidder shall be required to tender an additional deposit which, when added to the initial deposit, shall hereafter be referred to collectively as the “Deposit,” within ten (10) business days, time being of the essence, of the conclusion of the auction, so that the total Deposit amount held on behalf of the Mortgagee shall be equal to ten percent (10%) of the successful bid. The failure of the successful bidder to tender such additional deposit shall be a breach of the bidder’s obligations under the memorandum and will entitle the Mortgagee to all of its rights and remedies thereunder.

If the Deposit is retained for any reason, it shall become the property of the Mortgagee and shall not be required to be applied to the mortgage debt. Conveyance of the Mortgaged Premises shall be by Foreclosure Deed. The Foreclosure Deed shall be delivered to the successful bidder upon Mortgagee’s receipt of the balance of the purchase price. Liens and Encumbrances: The Mortgaged Premises shall be sold and conveyed subject to any and all unpaid taxes, mortgages, liens and other encumbrances entitled to precedence over the mortgage. Exclusion of Warranties: Except for warranties arising by operation of law, the conveyance of the Mortgaged Premises will be made by the Mortgagee and accepted by the successful bidder without any other express or implied representations or warranties whatsoever, including, without limitation, representations or warranties relating to title, possession or tenancies, condition of the Mortgaged Premises, construction or fitness for habitation, compliance with applicable state or local building or sanitary codes, recitation of acreage or hazardous waste at the Mortgaged Premises, or any implied or express warranties of any kind, including any warranties of merchantability and/or fitness for a particular purpose, the Mortgaged Premises being sold “AS IS” and “WHERE IS,” and shall be conveyed subject to the restrictive covenants set forth in the deed from Paul Batakis, Trustee of 240 Newbury Street Realty Trust to Linda R. Gilbert dated January 4, 2012, recorded in the Belknap County Registry of Deeds in Book 2749, Page 607.

Reservation of rights: The Mortgagee reserves the right to (1) cancel or continue the foreclosure sale to such subsequent date or dates as the Mortgagee may deem necessary or desirable; (2) bid on, assign its bid if it is the successful bidder, and/or purchase the Mortgaged Premises at the foreclosure sale; (3) reject any and all bids for the Mortgaged Premises, the foreclosure of the Mortgaged Premises being offered with reserve; (4) waive reading of this notice or any portion thereof at the foreclosure sale; and (5) amend or alter the terms of sale as stated in this notice by oral or written announcement made at any time before or during the foreclosure sale, and such changes or amendments shall be binding on all bidders.

In the past, the SAT Exam had been strictly multiple choices. The SAT Exam now is becoming a test of critical reading, comprehensive writing and higher mathematics in addition to a test of learned skills that you use to reason. Students will improve problem solving skills involving basic math, Algebra, Algebra II and Geometry. Emphasis will also be placed on helping the student score better on the written essay portion of the exam.

The SAT Preparation classes will also better prepare the students for the different types of questions asked, when to guess at a question, and how to pace oneself so as to not run out of time. Test taking tips will also be given. The skills required by the new SAT are those same skills needed by all high school students today. For more information or to enroll in the SAT Preparation Class, contact Peggy Selig, Director, Laconia Adult Education at 524-5712.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, September 6, 2012— Page 21

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Dear Annie: My wife and I have been married for 18 years, and we have three children. I always thought we got along great. Over the past few years, we have not been as intimate as we once were, and I attributed it to busy schedules, children, etc. However, recently I discovered that my wife has been having Internet chats with a particular gentleman, and these chats get rather steamy. Annie, I cannot even get my wife to hug me without resistance, but yet she can talk to a stranger like this. She doesn’t know that I have seen these conversations. Is the handwriting on the wall? Should I prepare myself for her to leave? -- Confused in Virginia Dear Confused: Some women (and men) enjoy flirting online with anonymous strangers. It’s playacting and fantasy, and they don’t believe these relationships will threaten their marriages. But even if your wife is not looking for real-life excitement, you should not ignore this. Please don’t jump to conclusions. A crucial part of marriage is good communication. Tell your wife you saw her chats with this man. Don’t be accusatory or angry. Simply say that you love her and this makes you sad and worried. Ask her what’s going on. She also needs to stop contacting this man in order to regain your trust. If she refuses, hedges or indicates that there are problems in your marriage, ask her to go with you for counseling. Dear Annie: My nephew and his bride planned a small wedding ceremony with only the parents and siblings present. They made no secret of their plans. They also invited the rest of their family and friends to a big celebration a few weeks after. Imagine their surprise when a cousin and her daughter showed up at the ceremony uninvited. This was not a spurof-the-moment thing. It involved time off of work and getting

on a plane. She left right after, saying she had other plans. How can the bride and groom get over the trauma of an uninvited guest? She ruined the wedding. What does one say to a wedding crasher who feels no shame, but wants to keep it a secret from other family members? -- She Ruined the Wedding Dear She: Please try not to be so overwrought. This cousin’s behavior was extremely rude, but unless she got drunk, knocked over the bride and jumped into all the photos, she did not ruin the wedding. If it was that important for the ceremony to be private (after broadcasting all the details), the couple could have hired someone to stand at the door and turn away uninvited guests. This cousin’s behavior was illmannered, but she simply watched the ceremony and left. Unless the bridal couple wishes this to cause lasting harm, it can be forgiven. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Married to an Octopus,” whose husband can’t keep his hands off of her. I am in my mid 50s and dating and can give a different point of view. I envy her. I am attractive, well educated and kind, and I keep myself in good shape and enjoy socializing. But to my surprise, the men I am meeting have very little interest in romance. Where have all the loving men gone? For the past four months, I have been dating a man whom I would almost pay to be romantic. He never initiates intimacy and, from what he says, considers it a chore. Wow, really? I would be flattered to have a little groping and sexy talk. I am starting to feel like his sister. -- Enjoy What You’ve Got Dear Enjoy: Too much or too little of anything can be a problem. If the majority of the men you meet have no interest in intimacy, you might ask yourself whether something that’s attracting you to them is also part of the problem.
