Police say burglary ring busted & 17 firearms recovered By Gail OBer

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

GILMANTON — After what Chief Joseph Collins described as some “good old-fashioned police work,” three people allegedly responsible for as many as 19 burglaries in the Lakes Region are behind bars today.

They were arrested Wednesday at 8:10 a.m. in a raid at a home on Allens Mills Road, where they lived. Daniel Roberts, 21, of 31 Allens Mill Road is charged with four counts of burglary in Gilmanton and one count of burglary in Laconia for alleg-

edly entering an occupied home on Warren Street in Laconia. Roberts is also charged with two counts of changing the markings on a firearm, one count of attempting to commit burglary, and one count of receiving stolen property — all Gilmanton charges.

Jacqualyn Oliver, 25, of 31 Allens Mill Road is charged with one count of being a felon in possession of a dangerous weapon and one count of receiving stolen property — all Gilmanton charges. She is being held on $5,000 cash bail. see BUrGLary page 11

cluded. If banking worked like health care, ATM transactions would take days, the report said. If home building were like health care, carpenters, electricians and plumbers would work from different blueprints and hardly talk to each other. If shopping were like health care, prices would not be posted and could vary widely within the same store, depending on who was paying. If airline travel were like health care, individual pilots would be free to design their own preflight safety checks — or not perform one at all. How much is $750 billion? The one-year estimate of health care waste is equal to more than ten years of Medicare cuts in Obama’s health care law. It’s more than the Pentagon budget. It’s more than enough to care for the uninsured. Getting health care costs better controlled is one of the keys to reducing the deficit, the biggest domestic challenge facing the next president. The report did not lay out a policy prescription for Medicare and Medicaid but suggested there’s plenty of room for lawmakers to find a path.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. health care system squanders $750 billion a year — roughly 30 cents of every medical dollar — through unneeded care, byzantine paperwork, fraud and other waste, the influential Institute of Medicine said Thursday in a report that ties directly into the presidential campaign. President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney are accusing each other of trying to slash Medicare and put seniors at risk. But the counter-intuitive finding from the report is that deep cuts are possible without rationing, and a leaner system may even produce better quality. “Health care in America presents a fundamental paradox,” said the report from an 18-member panel of prominent experts, including doctors, business people, and public officials. “The past 50 years have seen an explosion in biomedical knowledge, dramatic innovation in therapies and surgical procedures, and management of conditions that previously were fatal ... “Yet, American health care is falling short on basic dimensions of quality, outcomes, costs and equity,” the report con-

Both Obama and Romney agree there has to be a limit to Medicare spending, but they differ on how to get that done. Obama would rely on a powerful board to cut payments to service providers, while gradually changing how hospitals and doctors are paid to reward results instead of volume. Romney would limit the amount of money future retirees can get from the government for medical insurance, relying on the private market to find an efficient solution. Each accuses of the other of jeopardizing the well-being of seniors. But panel members urged a frank discussion with the public about the value Americans are getting for their health care dollars. As a model, they cited “Choosing Wisely,” a campaign launched earlier this year by nine medical societies to challenge the widespread perception that more care is better. “Rationing to me is when we are denying medical care that is helpful to patients, on the basis of costs,” said cardiologist Dr. Rita Redberg, a medical school professor at the University of California, San Francisco. see HEALTH CARE page 3

CASEVILLE, Mich. (AP) — Two Michigan sheriff’s deputies can expect wedding invitations in their future for rescuing a couple who became stranded on an island during a meticulously planned, elaborate marriage proposal that apparently accounted for everything but bad weather. Nathan Bluestein, of Northville, and May Gorial, of Madison Heights, set out by canoe Saturday in Wild Fowl Bay near Caseville, about 110 miles north of Detroit, the Huron County sheriff’s department said. Gorial, 32, accepted the proposal, but strong wind and waves kept them from returning to shore. Bluestein, 27, told the Detroit Free Press that he had been planning the proposal for months. He tucked a message in a bottle inside a lunch bag that he brought on the trip. “I made sure that she see RESCUE page 3

RESCUE from page 2 never could touch the lunch bag,” he said “I had it around my arm the whole time.” Inside the bottle was a sheet of paper, soaked in tea and burned around the edges, with a poem written in French. Gorial, a French teacher at Bishop Foley Catholic High School in Madison Heights, began reading and translating the poem before finding a proposal written in English on another piece of paper. “The way I look at it ... she’s my best friend and the love of my life,” Bluestein said. The two talked and snapped pictures, and didn’t realize they were too far from land. They ended up on North Island and the sheriff’s department sent the two deputies by boat from Caseville. Bluestein and Gorial don’t have a wedding date set, but the deputies will definitely be invited to the event. “If it wasn’t for them, we wouldn’t have seen the wedding day,” Gorial said. HEALTH CARE from page 2 “We have a lot of medical care that is not helpful to patients, and some of it is harmful. The problem is when you talk about getting rid of any type of health care, someone yells, ‘Rationing.’ “ More than 18 months in the making, the report identified six major areas of waste: unnecessary services ($210 billion annually); inefficient delivery of care ($130 billion); excess administrative costs ($190 billion); inflated prices ($105 billion); prevention failures ($55 billion), and fraud ($75 billion). Adjusting for some overlap among the categories, the panel settled on an estimate of $750 billion. Examples of wasteful care include most repeat colonoscopies within 10 years of a first such test, early imaging for most back pain, and brain scans for patients who fainted but didn’t have seizures. The report makes ten recommendations, including payment reforms to reward quality results instead of reimbursing for each procedure, improving coordination among different kinds of service providers, leveraging technology to reinforce sound clinical decisions and educating patients to become more savvy consumers. The report’s main message for government is to accelerate payment reforms, said panel chair Dr. Mark Smith, president of the California HealthCare Foundation, a research group. For employers, it’s to move beyond cost shifts to workers and start demanding accountability from hospitals and major medical groups. For doctors, it means getting beyond the bubble of solo practice and collaborating with peers and other clinicians.

Asking 2nd term, Obama says nation ‘not going back’ CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — His re-election in doubt, President Barack Obama conceded only halting progress Thursday night toward fixing the nation’s stubborn economic woes but vowed in a Democratic National Convention finale, “Our problems can be solved, our challenges can be met.” “Yes, our path is harder — but it leads to a better place,” he declared in a prime-time speech to convention delegates and the nation, blending resolve about rescuing the nation from near economic catastrophe with stinging criticism of Republican rival Mitt Romney’s own proposals. Widely viewed as reserved, even aloof, Obama acknowledged “my own failings” as he asked for a second term, four years after taking office as the nation’s first black president. Citing progress toward recovery, he said, “After a decade that was defined by what we bought and borrowed, we’re getting back to basics and doing what America has always done best: We’re making things again.” “Four more years,” delegates chanted over and over as the 51-year-old Obama stepped to the podium, noticeably grayer than he was as a history-making candidate for the White House in 2008. First Lady Michelle Obama and the couple’s daughters, Malia and Sasha, joined the president on stage in the moments after the speech, followed by other family members and Vice President Joe Biden and his wife. Strains of “Only in America” filled the hall as confetti filled the air. Obama’s speech was the final act of a pair of highly scripted national political conventions in as many weeks, and the opening salvo of a two-month drive toward Election Day that pits Obama against Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts. Not only economic proposals will settle a tight contest for the White House in a dreary season of economic struggle for millions, but also campaign cash. There, Romney holds an advantage for sure. His campaign has purchased about $4.5 million in television advertising for the next several days, according to officials who track such spending. Obama, by contrast, emailed a fundraising appeal to supporters two hours before his convention speech. Biden preceded Obama at the convention podium and proclaimed, “America has turned the corner” after experiencing the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. Obama didn’t go that far in his own remarks, but he said firmly, “We are not going back, we are moving forward, America.”

With unemployment at 8.3 percent, the president said the task of recovering from the economic disaster of 2008 is exceeded in American history only by the challenge Franklin Delano Roosevelt faced when he took office in 1933. “It will require common effort, shared responsibility and the kind of bold persistent experimentation” that FDR employed, Obama said. In an appeal to independent voters who might be considering a vote for Romney, he added that those who carry on Roosevelt’s legacy “should remember that not every problem can be remedied with another government program or dictate from Washington. He said, “The truth is, it will take more than a few years for us to solve challenges that have built up over the decades.” The Romney campaign was dismissive as Democrats completed their convention. “Americans will hold President Obama accountable for his record — they know they’re not better off and that it’s time to change direction,” Matt Rhoades, the challenger’s campaign manager, said in a statement. In the run-up to Obama’s speech, delegates erupted in tumultuous cheers when former Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, grievously wounded in a 2011 assassination attempt, walked onstage to lead the Pledge of Allegiance. The hall grew louder when she blew kisses to the crowd. And louder still when huge video screens inside the hall showed the face of Osama bin Laden, the terrorist mastermind killed in a daring raid on his Pakistani hideout by U.S. special operations forces — on a mission approved by the current commander in chief. The hall was filled to capacity long before Obama stepped to the podium, and officials shut off the entrances because of a fear of overcrowding for a speech that the campaign had originally slated for the 74,000-seat football stadium nearby. Aides said weather concerns prompted the move to the convention arena, capacity 15,000 or so. Obama’s campaign said the president would ask the country to rally around a “real achievable plan that will create jobs, expand opportunity and ensure an economy built to last.” He added, “The truth is it will take more than a few years for us to solve challenges that have built up over a decade.” In convention parlance, both Obama and Biden were delivering acceptance speeches before delegates who nominated them for new terms in office.

That old Clinton magic Back in 1988, we had what we thought was a great new idea. There was only one slot for a keynote speech at the Democratic convention on Monday night, but we had two great candidates for the job. One was the late Ann Richards, then the treasurer of the state of Texas and a candidate for governor, famous for her wit and wisdom (remember: George Bush was born “with a silver foot in his mouth”). The other was the governor of Arkansas, a young star of the party, a charismatic speaker, a southern moderate and a good friend. We needed the votes of women; we needed votes among more conservative white men. How could we have them both? We asked Richards to keynote on Monday and Bill Clinton to nominate Michael Dukakis on Wednesday. Clinton’s initial reaction was disappointment. Our answer, my answer, at the time was that this could be just as good of a slot; we would cut out all of the seconding speeches, and he would be the one who told the candidate’s story and made the case for his election. The first draft we saw of Clinton’s speech was not exactly what we had in mind. It went on, at some length, about international economic policy. Hand it to Clinton: No one I’ve ever met in politics has a better sense of where we are headed, and we were certainly headed for a global economy that most of us could not have foreseen in 1988. But this was a convention. So we sent word back that while the international economy was certainly interesting, what we really needed — particularly since our candidate was less comfortable than most with either singing his own praises or crucifying his opponent — was a more political speech that would set the tone for the nomination of the party’s candidate for president. Maybe we weren’t clear that we also meant “drop” the international economy stuff. The rest is history. The history of a disaster. It went on and on. Poor Tad Devine, legendary political consultant, kept hitting the red button. The biggest applause line was: “In conclusion...”

And for years afterward people would say to me, “Who came up with the hare-brained idea of wasting a guy who was a better speaker than the candidate on a single nominating speech?” As in most things, if you just wait long enough... On Wednesday night, Bill Clinton did brilliantly what he (and we) did quite a bit less brilliantly 24 years ago. Putting aside the tensions of the past, he made the case for Barack Obama and against Mitt Romney with passion, eloquence and genuine conviction. I have no doubt that more people watched and listened on Wednesday night because he was the headliner. It is, of course, no small triumph that 12 years after leaving office, President Clinton returned to the Democratic convention more popular than ever. And to listen to the people who tried to destroy his presidency now heaping praise on his tenure so they can knock Obama with it confirms once again the divide between politics and principle. The Clinton triumph is not just the product of nostalgia — although there certainly is nostalgia for those years of peace and prosperity — but of his tireless efforts and commitment to helping the world’s least fortunate in the years since. He has been an admirable former president. But it speaks just as well of the current president that he wanted Clinton there. I’ve been around long enough to remember cases where candidates openly worried about being upstaged at their own conventions and arranged speaker slots so that wouldn’t happen. We used to joke that that was what Monday night was for. For this convention, there was no Monday night. Bill Clinton dazzled Wednesday night because Barack Obama asked him to. And that speaks well of both of them. (Susan Estrich is a professor of Law and Political Science at the University of Southern California Law Center.

LETTERS Let me tell you about the movie they don’t want you to see To the editor, Because I always try to educate myself about all of the candidates heading into an election, and because we were denied the chance to learn much about the background of candidate Obama in 2008 (and are still), I was especially anxious to see the recently released documentary about his life written by Dartmouth alum, college president, and NYT bestselling author Dinesh D’Souza and produced by Oscar winner Gerald Molen. While my personality is admittedly conservative, I have always held myself to be politically independent and have always voted for the candidate rather than the party, except in times when one party was so out of touch or had such a contrary agenda that I had to rebel. I voted for Bill Clinton (once) and Governor Lynch (once), and have even written checks to the Democratic Party in the past, when I felt they were more deserving. But even though I now find myself having more in common with the ideals of the Republican Party, I try not to enter the voting booth without a full appreciation of the agendas and backgrounds of the candidates on both sides. I take my vote very seriously and want to be sure I use it wisely. I had heard that, while it does have a right lean and some of its conclusions are biased, the historical facts laid out in “2016 — Obama’s America” are accurate and its use of Obama’s own words, played in his own voice from the recordings of his own books, puts many of his activities and stated objectives into a perspective that is impossible to ignore. I felt I owed it to myself to see this film before the upcoming election. But I found that the usual movie guide websites were refusing to provide information about where this film could be seen. Searching for it just gave a “no results found” response. The same sites that had no trouble telling us the show times and locations where we could see Michael Moore’s left-leaning “documentaries” were acting as if this film did not exist. The usual ads we’d see in the papers and the trailers we’d see on TV for even the most far left films about George Bush, Margaret Thatcher, or Ronald Reagan were not being allowed for this film... which is probably why so many of you

readers are wondering what the heck I am talking about. When I called theaters that had live phones to ask why they were not carrying the film, I was told that they were either not being offered the film to show by their film suppliers, or being pressured not to show it by their franchisers. When I e-mailed to independent theaters like Barnz’s in Meredith to ask why they were not showing it, they did not respond. Yet despite all this, I found where it had still managed to become the #1 grossing documentary and the #7 grossing film overall in the country. So while last week I would have had to find the film’s own website to see that it was only playing in one N.H. theater, then drive down to Newington to see it. Yesterday I found out that nine N.H. theaters had caved to the pressure to start showing it, the nearest being Smitty’s in Tilton. So my 30 year old son and I headed over last evening. It was my first time to Smitty’s, or to any such dinner-theater, and we really enjoyed the place, the food, and the movie. While I consider my son (also a Dartmouth grad) a very intelligent and liberal thinker and I strongly suspect that he voted for Obama in 08, he never once complained about the film being biased or fictional. He watched intently, and like me, he seemed to be absorbing from it those things which he saw must be true and deflecting those things which were clearly just assumed. We did not even talk about the film afterwards, because (I think) we both respect that we are each smart and independent enough to draw our own conclusions, yet not smart enough that either of us could change the conclusions of the other. But I know we are both a bit smarter for having seen it as we head into November. While Smitty’s other cinemas were virtually empty, 2016 was so crowded that we had to sit way up front. The ticket salesman said it had been that way with every showing and that it was the only movie keeping the place open. The film was very informative, and was not really as right-biased as I had expected based on the press it has been getting. In fact, I thought it left out a few facts that could have hurt see next page

LETTERS Replacing Engine 4 has been in Gilford’s CIP plan since 2008

Voters said ‘no’ so selectmen sought out smaller number of them

To the editor, I am the chairman of the Capital Improvements Planning Committee, also known as the CIP Committee, for the Town of Gilford. The CIP Committee helps to coordinate the plans for the various purchases for the town that are $50,000 or greater and have an expected life span of greater than five years. These purchases are further broken down in the evaluation process based on several criteria, such as: Will the purchase contribute to the health and safety of the community? Is the purchase needed to meet federal, state, or town regulations or laws and there are many other evaluations that are used in the planning process for major purchases? The committee then spreads these purchases out over a six year timespan and we try to avoid high spikes or low dips from occurring in order to have the minimal impact on the taxpayer’s dollar. Purchases do, occasionally, get moved from year to year based on need or importance to the community or to avoid a spike or dip in the budget process. The request for purchases is first presented by the Department Head to the CIP Committee. The request undergoes the CIP evaluation process

To the editor, When politicians won’t take no for an answer we will all end up paying the price. Last November the town of Belmont went through the vetting and voting process concerning the purchase of the building at 154 Main Street, the old bank building. We were told that the money would come from a reserve fund (does that mean that we were already over-taxed?) and that it would not constitute a raise in our taxes for the purchase of the building, and they were correct in this statement. There was, however, no plan for what was to become of the building, just some ideas thrown out and that was for a specific reason. You see, anything the town wants to do with the building after it has been purchased will constitute additional funding that will have to come from the taxpayers in the form of an increased tax rate. The town voted NO with a large percentage

and the final, CIP approved, plan is then presented to the selectmen. The replacement of the Gilford Fire Rescue Engine 4 has been pushed further out over the years. The engine first appeared as a purchase planned for the year 2008. Then during the CIP process in 2007 the purchase of Engine 4 was moved to 2011. During the CIP process in 2009 the chief was again asked if the replacement could be moved further back one more year to 2012, keeping in mind that it takes about one year from order to delivery. The purchase for the replacement of Engine 4 remained on the Capital Improvement Plan for 2012 and last year was approved for replacement this year by a unanimous vote of the CIP Committee. The information above is informative and factual pieces of information to help you better understand some of the functions of your local government. Now, in speaking on my own, as a taxpayer of Gilford, I fully support the replacement for Engine 4.

We can’t afford to lose Ray Burton’s service at this critical time To the editor, In this polarizing political climate it is so gratifying to have a man like Councilor Ray Burton representing the interest of the North Country in Concord. I have known Councilor Burton since grade school and have see how his service has touched innumerable members of his constituency. from preceding page Obama even more had that been the intention. Anyone, like me, intelligent enough to filter out the facts from the spin will get the education that the network news and newspapers don’t want you to have (and I commend the Sun for even printing this letter).

You Might Be A Unitarian Universalist If… You think you aren’t a “church” person You think your beliefs don’t mesh with any church’s dogma You think there isn’t a place where you will fit in Then come visit the UUSL where there is no dogma, where “nonchurch” people find acceptance and a place to belong.

of registered voters voting. Not wanting to represent the population, the town politicians pulled a fast by putting the same vote before a special voting session being held during one of the busiest vacation times of the summer. They announced the session and vote with the minimum announcements required by law. There were only 300 of the 3,875 registered voters who found out about the vote and showed up. The vote was passed by 8 votes. This is hardly a representative form of voting in this town. Now after the building is purchased something will have to be done with it. Here is my prediction to all of you taxpayers in Belmont, myself included... The selectman will be coming back with a request for more funding (read increased taxes) in order to “continue with the next step in the process” with this building. Thanks Belmont. Dave Nix Belmont

Press needs to inform us about the other 10 running for president To the editor, When will the media inform citizens of America about the other 10 declared presidential candidates? Granted President Obama and Mitt Romney are the money makers, but shouldn’t the citizens of America be updated on the other 10? They are: Stewart Alexander, PFP & Socialist; Kathyern Lane, Republican; Andy Martin, Republican; Jimmy McMillan, Republican; Ron Paul, Republican; Stephen Rollins,

Independent; Matt Synder, Republican; Randall Terry, Democrat; Danny Woodring, Independent; and Vern Wuensche, Republican. It would be great to hear their views and problem solving abilities about our economy, government spending, medical coverage, and more. Maybe the citizens of America will choose their own president without the glorified party conventions and advertising hype. George Woodruff Belmont

LETTERS Those who preach Bible like to pick & chose what to adhere to To the editor, I am appalled that, in this day and age, a person would have the closed mindedness to call those who do not feel as they do “stupid”. I, of course, am talking about the letter submitted by William “Liam” McCoy in the September 5th issue. It seems childish and immature that a person cannot look past their own beliefs and see that they have resorted to name calling like that of an elementary school child. I am an Atheist, which for those of you who do not know, means I do not believe in God. I see our country full of those who preach their religion, but do not “help they neighbor”. To me, our current economical situation has nothing to do with God, or Jesus Christ, but rather has to do with us. We have elected the officials who represent the voice of the people, and they, acting for us, are the ones responsible for our current situation. What is wrong with everyone just doing the right thing and being a good person? Why does every political stance have to involve God? We all have our own personal beliefs, but when I see someone waiting for God to help us out of our situation, then I get upset. Liam, you stated that you “came

to America”, so one can assume that you were not born here. Let me quote what the bible says about foreigners; “However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance. You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way. (Leviticus 25:44-46).” Since you are so determined to follow the word of God, then you should also be the first to offer your children as slaves. Those who preach the Bible like to pick and choose what parts of the “word of God” they adhere to. I of course do not believe any man, woman, or child should be sold into slavery. I also do not believe that we need to turn to God to get us out of our current situation. Before you choose to call those who believe differently than you “stupid”, make sure you look at yourself first. James Gillis Gilmanton

My son represents new generation of cutting-edge leadership To the editor, I grew up in the Lakes Region. I went to Laconia High School, married my husband of 37 years in Laconia, and we raised our four children right here! We have owned a business in the Lakes region for 35 years. This area is a great place to live, work, and raise a family. My family has deep roots in local politics. My father, Paul Stewart, Sr., was on the Laconia City Council, and was beloved by the people of the city — so much that Laconia dedicated “Stewart Park,” right in the heart of downtown, in his honor. My dad was a principled conservative and nobody that I know understands responsible government better than he did — until my son Josh. Josh Youssef is a native of Laconia, a longtime entrepreneur and businessowner, and is now running for the State Senate right here in District 7. I am proud to say that Josh is every bit the principled conservative that my dad was. My dad would have been very proud of his grandson, who he unfortu-

nately never had the chance to meet. Josh has always shown strength of character, perseverance through trial, unyielding tenacity, and a relentless pursuit of justice. His understanding of law, government, and the legislative process, coupled with his incredible logical and intellectual capacity — and his successful background with computers and technology — makes him the best qualified candidate to lead this district as our next state senator. Under Josh’s leadership we can be sure that New Hampshire government is responsible in its spending, that this state becomes more economically friendly to businesses, is a healthy place for jobs to be created, and is a place where we can educate our youth in the best manner possible. It is at this time that I ask you to join me in electing a new generation of cutting-edge leadership; my son, Josh Youssef to be the next senator representing District 7! Susan Youssef Laconia

Got Lunch! Inter-Lakes will kick off in summer of 2013; fund raising starts now By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

MEREDITH — If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, there should be no surprise that the Got Lunch! Inter-Lakes program, which was kicked off at a press conference yesterday, bears such a strong resemblance to the Got Lunch! program started two years ago in Laconia. Founders of the Inter-Lakes venture were so enamored of Laconia’s Got Lunch! that they set out to replicate the program in their own school district. Fortunately for them, Laconia organizers were happy to share the secrets of the operation, welcoming people from neighboring towns to apprentice in Laconia through the summer. In the Inter-Lakes District, as in Laconia, the Got Lunch! program will offer, during summer school vacation, weekly deliveries of groceries to the families of participating school children. The model was conceived as a way to address a concern: if such a significant percentage of local school children come from homes that qualify for free or reduced price meals at school, what do those children eat during the summer, when cafeterias are closed? Kate Miller, who along with Selectman Carla Horne serves as co-chair of the Inter-Lakes organization, said, “Here in Inter-Lakes, a third of school children are on free and reduced lunch. There is certainly a need here, as there is in Laconia.” Although the programs are created with the students from struggling families in mind, there’s no income threshold or screening process for those who apply. Any child who lives in the district is able to sign up. The district includes the towns of Meredith, Center Harbor and Sandwich. The deliveries won’t start until June of next year, but the work has already begun for Got Lunch! Inter-Lakes. If every student who qualifies for free and reduced lunch applies for the program, Miller said it will have about

300 students to serve. At an estimated cost of $110 per child, per summer, that means the organizers can’t wait until June to start fund raising. The kick-off event also signals the start of volunteer recruitment. In addition to fund raisers, Got Lunch! Inter-Lakes is hoping to attract database managers and bargain-hunting shoppers to the cause. Many more volunteers will be needed for the summer months, when it comes time to pack the food into bags and deliver them to homes. With all the work ahead of them, the Got Lunch! Inter-Lakes crowd is fortunate to have a couple of significant partners. For one, Trinity Episcopal Church in Meredith is serving as the program’s fiscal agent, allowing for the operation to function under non-profit status. Donations are therefore tax-deductible. The partnership should also should translate into a healthy supply of volunteers, according to Rector Robin Soller. “This church, for some years now, has said we feel strongly about food-related issues,” Soller said, adding that the church found it a quick decision to partner with the program. “It just seemed like it was a good fit for us.” As in Laconia, though, where the Congregational Church serves as the fiscal agent, Soller emphasized that the effort is open to all community members, including those who attend a different house of worship. Another partner is the Inter-Lakes School District, which has agreed to allow Got Lunch! to store food at the elementary school, which will also serve as the operations center during the summer. If Laconia’s experience is a predictor, many school district employees will volunteer for the program. Town Manager Phil Warren was present for the kick-off event, and he said town workers would also be able to volunteer on the Monday deliveries, if they so desired.

Potential investors invited to forum on downtown Laconia revitalization zone LACONIA — City Manager Scott Myers, in conjunction with the City Council and the Main Street Initiative, has announced a forum to be held on Thursday, Sept. 13 at 5 p.m. in the newly renovated commercial space at 600 Main Street,, to discuss the city’s Economic Revitalization Zones (ERZs). City Council has been approved three ERZs within the past year — O’Shea Industrial Park, Lakes Business Park and the downtown area. ERZ tax credits are short-term tax credits against the state business profits and enterprise taxes, encouraging business growth in designated areas. These zones are areas of the city where entrepreneurs may reap up to $200,000 in tax credits over a five year period for investing in them. To qualify, a certain amount of capital investment must be made and the location must meet certain criteria. The forum will discuss and clarify how the city’s ERZs fit those criteria, and how best to benefit from this opportunity. John Moriarty, president of the Main Street Initiative and a principal in the newly renovated space for lease at the former Sundial Shop, praised the efforts of City Council, “All roads lead to Laconia and our commercial and industrial inventories make sound investments on their own merits”, said Moriarty,referring to Laconia’s dominant commercial base, year-round and seasonal popula-

tions and its geographic and political attributes all being positive dividends of being the county seat. “The forward thinking of City Council in establishing the ERZs is a wise first step in enticing both new investment and reinvestment”. As explained by Myers, Economic Revitalization Zone Tax Credits, are short-term tax credits against the business profits and enterprise taxes. To qualify, a certain amount of capital investment must be made and the location must meet certain demographic criteria, or be in an unused or underutilized industrial park, vacant land, structures previously used for industrial, commercial, or retail purposes but currently not used for such purposes. The total amount of the credit is $200,000 over five years. It is a two-step process, whereby the municipality first applies for the designation based upon specific criteria, and secondly, a business applies for the actual tax credit. Those attending the event will have an opportunity to meet with representatives of the New Hampshire Department of Resources and Economic Development (DRED) to learn how participation in an ERZ works and how it can benefit business. City leaders encourage all those interested in investing in revitalizing the city to attend this forum. To RSVP or for more information, call the City Manager’s office at 5271270 or email info@city.laconia.nh.us.

HORSES from page one Harried and Elissa Finks, a mother and daughter who own the farm, released a statement saying they were devastated by the fire. They said they considered the horses to be members of the family and they thanked everyone who worked at saving them. Stan Popielarz of the volunteer Bedford Community Response Team said many people had stopped by and offered their barns as a place for the remaining horses to stay.

Judith Maclellan said her grandchildren had ridden horses at the farm. When she heard the news, she said, “That just made me cry ... they had to have been panicked,” she said of the horses, New England Cable News reported. The farm’s website says it is a fullserved equestrian academy that offers a summer camp, in addition to horseback riding lessons and pony rides for various occasions.

from preceding page thought the change was “too drastic.” As to education, Youssef said he would not have supported renovating the Huot Regional Technical Education Center on the campus of his alma matter. “Just because you’ve built a new building doesn’t mean you’ve increased the level of education,” he said. He also thinks the education money should follow the child and is a big supporter of private schools, charters schools, and home schooling. He said real “school choice” would mean schools would have to compete for students and the money to educate them. “I would require all schools to compete to survive,” he said. He also said the state should have the right to contribute nothing directly to public education, although he doesn’t necessarily support the Legislature taking that course of action, and that schools should be locally con-

trolled and supported. He said the state university system should also become more competitive and he would “be comfortable with an entirely private system” of higher education. He is completely against the Northern Pass project, saying he doesn’t trust public utilities and the project will not provide lower cost energy to New Hampshire. He said he is especially concerned with prospect of eminent domain being used to grab privately held land in order to facilitate the bringing of Quebec hydropower into the state. Summing up, Youssef said the “state is at a critical crossroads” and he believes the New Hampshire advantage is slipping away. He said he is “an analytical problem solver with the skill to research for a sensible solution to raise the overall quality of life.”

from preceding page lived in Gilmanton most of his life and the two of them began hiking the trails in the woods that could connect Allens Mill Road to Oak Crest Lane. The two noticed several of the same sneaker prints and searched the trails for hours. They recovered some of the tools but none of the guns. He said there had been a previous break-in at the Oak Crest Lane home in July and a similar sneaker print was found then as well. He said the same single pry-toothed bar had been used to gain entry. On September 2, Officer Christopher Gustafson investigated an attempted break in on Ridgewood Drive and, although no one got in, the screen door was propped open and the homeowner said she didn’t prop it open. Collins said his officers began surveillance at the 31 Allens Mill Road property and said on September 3 he saw an unknown male get out of a maroon car holding a shotgun that looked like one of the guns stolen from Oak Crest Lane. He said the man holding the gun removed a television from the back of the car. He also said he “racked” the shotgun like he was loading the chamber and entered the house. He said seein the man with the gun and the television gave him enough information to apply for and get a search warrant for 31 Allens Mill Road and on September 5, Belmont Police, Gilmanton Police and the Belknap County Special Operation Group surrounded the home, waited for the two children inside to get on to the school bus, and then executed the search warrant. “I really want to commend my department,” he said, saying they all gave up their weekend and worked around the clock keeping surveillance on the home until police had enough evidence for a warrant. Once inside, Collins said they found 17 guns laying on the living room floor. He said it appeared attempts had been made to file the serial numbers off the handguns and to alter the barrels and stocks of the shotguns.

He said Oliver admitted to being a convicted felon, having been convicted after a drug arrest in Laconia. Collins said he had also been in contact with detectives from Laconia about some burglaries in the city, and Roberts, Oliver, and Peterson were taken to the Laconia Police Department, which he said has ample space for separate interrogations. Laconia Police Det. Kevin Butler said in his affidavit that Roberts admitted to breaking into the Warren Street home as well as five other burglaries in Laconia including three on Lafayette Street, one on Emerald Drive and being the “get away driver” at one on Sheridan Street. Butler said Roberts also told him he was the one who filed off the serial numbers of the handguns and attempted to alter the shotguns. Sanbornton Police Chief Steve Hankard said his lieutenant spoke with Roberts yesterday and he admitted to three burglaries or attempted burglaries in his town. He said he will turn over his information to Belknap County Attorney Melissa Guldbrandsen for possible indictments. Collins said Roberts told police that he was a narcotic drug user and that it got so bad for him he would drive around and knock on doors just hoping to find a house that was unoccupied. “He probably knocked on hundreds of doors,” Collins said. Collins said Roberts said most of the gold jewelry he stole was pawned either locally or in Manchester. Collins said the Belmont and Laconia Police, especially Belmont Det. Raechel Moulton, and Laconia Detectives Kevin Butler and Christopher Noyes were invaluable in helping him put together the pieces of the burglary ring. “This is a great example of police departments working together,” said Collins. EPTAM from page one engineering and technology (MET) program at the Huot Center a tour of their facility, which gave them a glimpse of the opportunities opened to them by high-tech manufacturing. “We make things here,” said Hollinger, explaining that Eptam produces machined plastic components, which range from bits and pieces surgeons implant in spines and knees to parts for Hellfire and Tomahawk missiles as well as Boeing 747s. Eptam’s products have contributed to detecting explosive devices in the Middle East, tracking hurricanes in the Caribbean and advancing scientific research at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Illinois. “Some of the stuff you’re going to see here will not be familiar to you,” Dearborn told the students, “but it’s the future.” For Dearborn the future began in in 1981 the kitchen of a duplex in Franklin where he began working plastics with a drill press and table saw.

process.” Not surprisingly, Eptam is considered among the best companies to work for in the state. With sound personnel policies and aggressive reinvestment strategies, Hollinger said that the major constraint on the firm’s growth is fostering and sustaining a talented workforce. “That is one of our reasons for supporting the Huot Center,” he said. “It’s the emphasis on math and science that develops our greatest assets — the people who work here.” As Dearborn said, Eptam has its eye to the future and with its contribution has invested in enhancing the opportunities for those who will follow his footsteps through Laconia High School and beyond. The new science laboratories are a key element in the renovation of parts of Laconia High School that was made possible by the reconstruction and expansion of the Huot Center. The $16.8-million project will include a 32,000-square-foot addition to the high school and the reconfiguration of the athletic fields. To raise the full $1-million needed to supplement state and federal funding, the capital campaign has turned to the community for donations in various amounts, all with the assurance that each contributor will be commemorated. Eptam Plastics is the most recent of a number of local firms to contribute to the project. The new playing field will be known as Bank of New Hampshire Stadium in honor of its $250,000 gift. The culinary arts program, replete with a the restaurant open to the public in new addition, will bear the name of Meredith Village Savings Bank in return for its $100,000 donation to the project. The Irwin Automotive Group contributed $50,000 and Irwin Marine $25,000. There are also opportunities for individuals and families to contribute. The entrance to the stadium will be lined with brick and granite pavers, each bearing a name or message of a donor.There will be 1,000 brick pavers measuring four inches by eight inches with space for 20 characters for a donation of $125 and 300 brick pavers measuring eight inches by inches with space for 40 characters for donations of $250. The 150 granite pavers are twelve inches square with space for a message, an image or a combination of the two in return for a $1,000 donation. For those wishing to make their contribution by Paypal or a credit card the school district has provided a pathway on its website. Simply go to laconiaschools.org and click on the “LHS Athletic Field Capital Campaign” link. Those purchasing a granite paver, or making a donation of equal or greater value, may spread their payment over several years. For information about making such an arrangement, contact the Laconia School District either by e-mail at lhscapitalcampaign@laconiaschools.org or telephone at 524-5710.

from preceding page he initially worked in the electronics industry, but when his employer was acquired by a firm in Chicago, he chose to remain in New England. He joined InsulFab, Inc., since 1923 a pioneer in the plastics industry. “I loved the job,” said Dearborn, who spent 23 years with the firm, many as general manager of the Franklin plant, but ultimately left as the company shrank amid changes in management. After escaping two unsuccessful partnerships, Dearborn converted the kitchen to a machine shop. After a while the fledgling company moved to space on Blaisdell Avenue, just across the Laconia city line in Gilford and subsequently built a 15,00-squarefoot facility at Waterford Place. In 1991, Dearborn, impressed by a young salesman from one of his material suppliers, hired Hollinger. “Jeff has been just terrific,” he said. By 1995, the company had added 25,000-square-feet and five years later broke ground on the nine-acre site that houses the 62,000-square-foot facility in Northfield, studded with an array of advanced cutting, drilling, milling and finishing machinery, where it operates today. “We have room to double our space,” Dearborn remarked, “which I hope will happen in my lifetime.” Hollinger recalled that about 12 years ago Eptam began turning its efforts toward the top end of the machined plastics industry by working to the most demanding designs and highest standards with the most challenging materials. “We use high performance materials, that can cost as much $2,500 a foot or $100 an inch,” he said, “and are difficult to work with. And we are looking at ever tighter tolerances. We’ve shrunk the competition by targeting the most challenging markets,” Hollinger said. “ Eptam has targeted the medical and aerospace markets, Hollinger said. “You must be certified before customers will even talk to you,” he said, explaining that the firm has met the standards of regulatory compliance and quality workmanship set by the International Organization of Standards (ISO) that apply to its major markets. Hollinger said that in 2012 Eptam will post annual sales of about $29-million which its profit margins are “above average” for the industry. Currently the plant operates around the clock with 112 employees working three shifts five or six days a week. And the plant has run for 2,240 days without an accident. “Our goal,” he said, “is to reach $50-million in annual sales.” Both Dearborn and Hollinger attributed Eptam’s success to its employees. “I’ve got some awfully good people,” Dearborn said, noting that his relationship with two employees in particular has stretched over 52 years. “Dad has always been a people person,” said Hali. “We’re only as good as our people,” echoed Hollinger. “If we take care of them, they will take care of us.” He said that apart from generous compensation and benefits, including a profit-sharing plan, “we try to empower our people to be part of the decision-making

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis draw the line. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). For all of your resistance to the work, you still get it done. So why resist it at all? It’s too tiring. Submit to the inevitable, and you just might find that you’re actually enjoying it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Some days, the hours run like a lowgrade fever, irritating in their development; everything makes you mad. Moods like that are signals that it’s time to rest. Ride it out and expect little of yourself. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When you are very clear about why you want to do something, your choices become more obvious. Just rule out everything that goes against your “why,” and you’ll be left with the best answers. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your inner drive will be stoked by external events that seem to rally you forward, cheerleader style. The attention you get is a reward in itself. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). By reading about and experiencing the company of people who are different from you, you get more clarity about who you are and how you want to be perceived. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 7). You’ll get another chance at a dream that’s not been realized. You’ll be considerably more creative in October. In November, it’s the impractical ventures that lead to exciting and lucrative developments. Family embraces your venture. March and May bring other investors on board. Love signs are Sagittarius and Aquarius. Your lucky numbers are: 50, 2, 23, 15 and 19.

TUNDRA

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Don’t get stressed out about the idea of following your intuition by wondering which internal voice is the right one. Intuition often comes in the form of curiosity or interest. Follow that, and you’ll be psychically connected. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Beware of unguarded sharing. You won’t trust those who give too much information, and others won’t trust you if you tell stories that aren’t yours to tell. Loose lips sink ships. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will sense that there is absolutely nothing to be gained by trying to be liked and selfless. You’ll take care of your own needs and pursue what delights you -- and people will like you all the more because of it. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You have been neglecting what you want, afraid of making others uncomfortable. What if you don’t ask for what’s reasonable? What if you ask for more than you think you deserve? You just might get it. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Do you have the sense that someone is messing with you? This is nothing personal. It might help you to pretend like this person is playing the kind of elaborate game that makes life worth living. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You will be strongly protective of your loved ones and will, in your own calm, controlled way, leap to their defense given the least provocation. Do the same for yourself. Teach the world how to treat you and yours. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Even though the demands on you are not loud or harsh, they are still abundant. So be as generous and helpful as you want to be, but also know where to

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, September 7, 2012— Page 17

––––––– ALMANAC –––––––

FRIDAY PRIME TIME

Today is Friday, Sept. 7, the 251st day of 2012. There are 115 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 7, 1812, the Battle of Borodino took place during the Napoleonic Wars as French troops clashed with Russian forces outside Moscow; although France won a short-term victory, Russia was able to ultimately drive out Napoleon’s invaders. On this date: In 1533, England’s Queen Elizabeth I was born in Greenwich. In 1892, James J. Corbett knocked out John L. Sullivan to win the world heavyweight crown in New Orleans in a fight conducted under the Marquess of Queensberry rules. In 1940, Nazi Germany began its eight-month blitz of Britain during World War II with the first air attack on London. In 1957, the original version of the animated NBC peacock logo, used to denote programs “brought to you in living color,” made its debut at the beginning of “Your Hit Parade.” In 1964, the controversial “Daisy” commercial, an ad for President L. B. Johnson’s election campaign featuring a girl plucking flower petals followed by a nuclear explosion, aired on NBC-TV. In 1972, the International Olympic Committee banned Vince Matthews and Wayne Collett of the U.S. from further competition for talking to each other on the victory stand during the playing of the “Star-Spangled Banner” after winning the gold and silver medals in the 400-meter run. In 1977, the Panama Canal treaties, calling for the U.S. to eventually turn over control of the waterway to Panama, were signed in Washington by President Jimmy Carter and Panamanian leader Omar Torrijos (toh-REE’-hohs). In 1986, Desmond Tutu was installed as the first black to lead the Anglican Church in southern Africa. One year ago: The latest in a series of Republican presidential debates brought together Mitt Romney, Michelle Bachmann, Rick Perry, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, Ron Paul, and Rick Santorum in Simi Valley, Calif. A private Russian jet carrying a top ice hockey team slammed into a riverbank moments after takeoff from the airport near the western city of Yaroslavl, killing at least 44 people. (Investigators blamed pilot error.) A powerful bomb hidden in a briefcase ripped through a crowd of people waiting to enter a New Delhi courthouse, killing 13 people. Today’s Birthdays: Jazz musician Sonny Rollins is 82. Actor Bruce Gray is 76. Singer Alfa Anderson (Chic) is 66. Actress Susan Blakely is 64. Singer Gloria Gaynor is 63. Rock singer Chrissie Hynde (The Pretenders) is 61. Actress Julie Kavner is 61. Rock musician Benmont Tench (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers) is 59. Actor Corbin Bernsen is 58. Actor Michael Emerson is 58. Pianist Michael Feinstein is 56. Singer Margot Chapman is 55. Actor W. Earl Brown is 49. Actor Toby Jones is 46. Model-actress Angie Everhart is 43. Actress Diane Farr is 43. Country singer Butter is 42. Actress Monique Gabriela Curnen is 42. Actor Tom Everett Scott is 42. Rock musician Chad Sexton (311) is 42. Actress Shannon Elizabeth is 39. Actor Oliver Hudson is 36. Actor Devon Sawa is 34. Singer-musician Wes Willis (Rush of Fools) is 26. Actress Evan Rachel Wood is 25.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, September 7, 2012— Page 19

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Dear Annie: My older sister, “Susie,” is 33 and has been receiving financial support from my parents for more than a decade. They give her money outright and also pay her car insurance, health insurance and other bills. Susie does not work. She’s in a master’s program, but it is unclear whether she will finish. My mother believes she needs to help Susie, as she has had mental illness issues throughout her adulthood. I am not upset that Susie is receiving money from my parents. It also doesn’t bother me that I am not likely to receive similar assistance. But I worry that my parents are giving Susie no reason to finish her degree or pursue a job. I consider it enabling. On several occasions, Susie has maxed out her credit cards, and my mother paid those off. My parents do not have the money to continue doing this. Is it appropriate to speak with them about this? -- A Sister Who Doesn’t Know What To Do Dear Sister: We don’t know the extent of Susie’s “mental illness issues” and whether or not she is capable of holding down a job or finishing her degree. Your parents believe they need to help her until she can support herself, and that pursuing a master’s degree will allow her to find gainful employment. We hope they are right. While you do not get to decide how your parents spend their money, you can bring up this subject and ask whether they have made arrangements for Susie’s care after they are gone. Dear Annie: I have been married for 20 years to the youngest of seven siblings. Whenever a niece or nephew has married or had children, the aunts (myself included) have given a shower. The problem is, I’m never asked. I’m just told. Once, I didn’t even know until I received an invitation with my name listed. Am I crazy to think that my husband’s sisters should ask

whether I’m interested in hosting a shower? I’m expected to make food, clean up and share expenses, but never given the opportunity to give any input. The few times I tried, I was completely ignored. To make matters worse, my husband’s family believes they need to invite a huge number of people, which means a hall must be rented and the total cost becomes prohibitive. Each shower has gotten bigger and more expensive, and each time, I’m simply informed of how big of a check I need to write and what I need to cook. We have a congenial but not close relationship with his siblings, and we don’t have children ourselves. How do I get the point across that I don’t want to be a hostess without completely offending the family? -- Unwilling in Nebraska Dear Nebraska: We won’t get into the etiquette of family members hosting a shower or having one so large that you must rent a hall. They aren’t likely to pay attention to those things. Find a time when there are no upcoming events scheduled to talk to the sister-in-law with whom you are closest. Explain that you appreciate being included as a regular hostess, but you cannot always manage it. Ask them sweetly to please consult you before assuming you will take on these responsibilities. (You may need to remind them more than once.) Dear Annie: I, too, would like to weigh in on the discussion regarding whether or not to have flowers at a funeral. Funerals are for the loved ones left behind. I attended the funeral of my friend’s only daughter, and we were asked to bring flowers because her daughter loved them. They were overflowing. There are 364 other days to donate to charity. People can send a donation in honor or in memory of anyone at any time. -- Not a Florist

Melcher & Prescott hosting Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours on September 12

Pine Gardens Manufactured Homes Sales & Park

Under New Ownership Lowest Prices Around!

LACONIA — Melcher & Prescott Insurance will host the Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours on Wednesday, September 12, from 5-7 p.m. at the Laconia office. Celebrating 150 years of serving their communities, Melcher & Prescott is proud to be a business leader in the Lakes Region. Special guest will be Sen. Jeannie Forrester. There will be raffle prizes, giveaways and a spread of hors d’oeuvres. For additional information contact the Chamber at 524-5531. In 1862, the agency was formed by Woodbury Melcher who had been mayor of Laconia as well as President of Laconia Savings Bank (now Bank of NH). In 1876 he was joined in partnership by True Prescott. In 1959 the agency was purchased by H. Thomas Volpe, who remains active to this day as President. Based in downtown Laconia the agency has grown to include four other locations – Meredith (formerly Bertram Blaisdell Agency); Plymouth (formerly Ayer Agency); Chocorua (formerly Raymond Flanagan Agency); and Moultonborough (formerly Reuben Hodge Agency). “I am very proud of our history,” comments Volpe. “We are one of the top three continuously locallyowned businesses with a recognized commitment to our clients and community.” Last year Melcher and Prescott created a strategic alliance with three other prominent New Hampshire agencies to bring new products and more competitive pricing options to its clients. The Alliance has since grown to include ten agencies in four states with 31 locations. “We now have all the buying power of the large national and regional brokers; but, because we are locally owned and operated, all of our efforts and resources stay right here to benefit our neighbors,” comments Shaun Farley, COO.
