BELMONT — N.H. Attorney General Joseph A. Foster last night announced the “suspicious deaths” of an adult male and an adult female whose bodies were found earlier in the day inside a rented home at 20 Sunset Drive. Just after 2 p.m. Tiilton police, responding to an BOLO (be on the lookout for) alert, stopped and detained Shawn Carter, 31,

who apparently was one of the residents of the home. Foster said the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner would be conducting autopsies on Saturday the determine causes of death. The identities of the two people were not released. The announcement was also signed by State Police Colonel Robert L. Quinn and Belmont Police Chief Mark Lewandoski. As of 4 p.m. yesterday afternoon, the

N.H. State Police Major Crime Scene van and the N.H. Medical Examiner were still on the scene at the white house next to Winnisquam Marine. A man who works at the marina said his work station is on the other side of a red stockade fence that separates the home from the marina said he saw what he described as a small woman speaking with a lone Belmont Police officer around 11 a.m. see dEatHs page 14

Jodi Arias foreman says asking jury for life or death decision unfair

PHOENIX (AP) — They were 12 ordinary citizens who didn’t oppose the death penalty. But unlike spectators outside the courthouse who followed the case like a daytime soap opera and jumped to demand Jodi Arias’ execution, the jurors faced a decision that was wrenching and real, with implications that could haunt them forever. In an interview Friday, jury foreman William Zervakos provided a glimpse into the private deliberations, describing four women and eight men who struggled with the question: How heinous of a killing deserves a similar fate? “The system we think is flawed in that sense because this was not a case of a Jeffrey Dahmer or Charles Manson,” Zervakos told The Associated Press. “It was a brutal no-win situation. ... I think that’s kind of unfair,” the 69-year-old added. “We’re not lawyers. We can’t interpret the law. We’re mere mortals. And I will tell see JURY page 3

Principal recounts tornado hitting Oklahoma school MOORE, Okla. (AP) — Teachers and students at Plaza Towers Elementary School hunkered down against the storm just as they had been taught in countless tornado drills, their principal said Friday, recounting how she walked the halls until the twister was on the doorstep, then announced on the intercom, “It’s here.” In a pause-filled recollection that left many weeping, Amy Simpson said at a news conference that her teachers emerged battered after doing what they could to save every child in the Oklahoma school.

Still, seven second- and third-graders were among the 24 killed when the top-of-thescale EF5 tornado with 210 mph winds struck Moore on Monday. “The teachers covered themselves in debris while they were covering their babies. And I believe that is why so many of us survived that day, because the teachers were able to act quickly, stay calm and take literally the weight of a wall onto their bodies to save those that were under them,” said Simpson, a native of the city of about 56,000.

The tornado was on the ground for 40 minutes and left a 17-mile path of destruction. Its victims at the school were ages 8 and 9. “These kids are close. They grew up in one neighborhood. They play in the streets. They play in the creek. They have their own little community, even more so in the classroom,” second-grade teacher Emily Eischen said. The Moore School District canceled its school year after the tornado hit Plaza Towers and the Briarwood school, where see TORNADO page 14

MOUNT VERNON, Wash. (AP) — The trucker was hauling a load of drilling equipment when his load bumped against the steel framework over an Interstate 5 bridge. He looked in his rearview mirror and watched in horror as the span collapsed into the water behind him. Two vehicles fell into the icy Skagit River. Amazingly, nobody was killed. The three people who fell into the water escaped with only minor injuries.

Officials are trying to find out whether the spectacular collapse of a bridge on one of the West’s most important roadways was a fluke — or a sign of a bigger problem with thousands of bridges across the U.S. Authorities focused first on trying to find a temporary span for the Skagit, although it won’t come in time for the tens of thousands of Memorial Day vacationers who would travel between Canada and Seattle. “You cannot overstate the importance of

this corridor to Washington state,” Gov. Jay Inslee said. Traffic on I-5 and surrounding roads was backed up for miles, a situation the governor said would continue indefinitely. Officials were looking for a temporary, pre-fabricated bridge to replace the 160foot section that failed, Inslee said Friday. If one is found, it could be in place in weeks. If not, it could be months before a replacement can be built, the governor said. see BRIDGE page 8

PHOENIX (AP) — A federal judge ruled Friday that the office of America’s self-proclaimed toughest sheriff systematically singled out Latinos in its trademark immigration patrols, marking the first finding by a court that the agency racially profiles people.

The 142-page decision by U.S. District Judge Murray Snow in Phoenix backs up allegations that Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s critics have made for years that his officers rely on race in their immigration enforcement.

Snow, whose ruling came more than eight months after a seven-day non-jury trial on the subject, also ruled Arpaio’s deputies unreasonably prolonged the detentions of people who were pulled over. see SHERIFF page 10

JURY from page 2 you I’ve never felt more mere as a mortal than I felt for the last five months.” Zervakos said the most difficult time of the entire trial was hearing directly from victim Travis Alexander’s family as his brother and sister tearfully explained how his killing has shattered their lives. “There was no sound in that jury room for a long time after that because you hurt so bad for these people,” he said. “But that wasn’t evidence. That’s what made it so hard. ... This wasn’t about them. This was a decision whether we’re going to tell somebody they were going to be put to death or spend the rest of their life in prison.” Zervakos described a deliberations room full of tears and spinning moral compasses as each juror struggled to come to grips with their own beliefs about what factors — including Arias’ young age at the time of the killing and her lack of criminal history — should cause them to show mercy and spare her life. “You’ve got Travis Alexander’s family devastated, that he was killed, that he was brutally killed. You’ve got Jodi Arias’ family sitting in there, both families sitting and seeing these humiliating images and listening to unbelievably lurid private details of their lives, and you’ve got a woman whose life is over, too,” Zervakos said. “I mean, who’s winning in this situation? And we were stuck in the middle.” Zervakos declined to discuss his thoughts or those of other jurors on whether Arias should have been sentenced to death or life. But he said he was torn between her two personas: a killer and an average young woman struggling through life. “You heard (prosecutor Juan) Martinez say she was only 27. ... She’s old enough that she should have known better,” Zervakos said. “I didn’t look at it that way. I’m looking at 27 years of an absolutely normal everyday young woman that was living a life that was perfectly normal. Then something changed the trajectory of her life after meeting Travis Alexander, and it spiraled downhill from there.” The same jury on May 8 convicted Arias of firstdegree murder in Alexander’s killing, but couldn’t reach a decision Thursday after about 13 hours of deliberations on whether she should live or die.

RECYCLING from page one if the program falls short of its goal, a “Pay-As-YouThrow” program will take its place next year. Beginning on July 1 all residents on the curbside collection routes will be required to recycle or forego trash collection. Recyclable materials need not be sorted or separated but can be co-mingled. The following items can be recycled: glass bottles and jars of all colors, aluminum and steel cans, plastics #1 through #7 (except styrofoam and plastic bags), cardboard, newspaper and paper of all types and colors. The proposed ordinance stipulates that newspapers, magazines and sheets of paper must be recycled by either tied in bundles of 50 pounds or less or placed in household recycling containers. Likewise, cardboard cartons, crates, barrels and other containers must also be included among recyclables. The limit on the number of containers placed at the curb — two for each family at single-family and duplex dwellings and seven at commercial and multi-family buildings — remains unchanged. Residents may use the remote recycling facilities at the transfer station, Lakeport Fire Station, Weirs Community Center, Memorial Park House and

Messer Street. Those who prefer to use the remote facilities exclusively should obtain a sticker identifying themselves as a “Remote Recycler” in order to ensure that their trash is collected at the curbside. Recyclable materials must be in a rigid container, which is clearly marked “recycling.” The Department of Public Works has appropriate stickers at no cost. Alternatively, the department offers 18-gallon bins free of charge or 64-gallon wheeled toters, the first at the discounted price of $25 and others at the full price of $45. The ordinance would be enforced in two stages. During the first week, July 1 through July 6, those found in violation of the recycling requirement or limitation on the number of containers, as well as of leaving unconfined trash at the curb, would be ticketed, but their trash would be collected. During and after the second week, July 8 through July 12, specific violations would be ticketed and the trash would not be collected. The property owner, not the Department of Public Works, would be responsible for the proper disposal of the uncollected trash. Violators of the ordinance could also be subject to a fine of $250.

Obama: Act II How can it be that with Washington simmering in scandals, with Republicans (not to mention talk-show hosts) using the “I” word (impeachment) with abandon, with calls to bring back Ken Starr (of Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky fame), President Obama’s job approval rating is holding steady at around 50 percent, thank you very much? It is unchanged from April, when no one was talking about any of those things. The explanation is easy: Unemployment is down; home sales and prices are at five-year highs. As always, it’s the economy. The surveys don’t tell us, at least not for sure, whether the president’s approval rating would be even higher were it not for all the hearings and finger pointing under the Capitol Dome. But they do tell us this: While more Republicans than Democrats are paying attention to the coverage of the scandals, overall, 75 percent of us just aren’t watching any of it very carefully. And it’s not even Memorial Day. As for the supposed “SecondTerm Curse,” which is also getting its share of ink, the fact is that Congress is making steady progress on immigration reform, which traditionally has been one of the trickiest public policy areas for any president, Republican or Democrat. Is the government working despite itself? Maybe. Have the rest of us grown so scandal-weary after so many years of partisan bickering and hyped-up hollering that we hardly know a real scandal from a look-alike? Maybe. So should the president just relax and go play nine holes? Absolutely not. For Barack Obama, the question is not whether he will win the next election. There is no next election. The question is whether his presidency will be judged a success, what his legacy will be, whether people will look back at his tenure and say that, all in all, the country was in good hands. Obama was re-elected despite a still-struggling economy, for reasons that had as much to do with demographics and Republican mistakes as his own successes. His signal accomplishment — the passage of Obamacare — is about to face the acid test. Will it “work”? Will Obamacare, like Medicare, soon be seen as an accepted (and essential) part of American life? The administra-

tion, in advance of the graduation speech season, was priming officials to emphasize to graduates and their parents how much Obamacare is already helping them. But allowing our kids to stay on our health plans after they graduate isn’t enough to cause a wholesale embrace of “exchanges” and “mandates” and the rest — words that are on the verge of becoming reality. Likewise, while the economy is improving, big problems loom. Today’s college graduates face an uncertain future, to say the least. According to a study out last month from the Economic Policy Institute, unemployment among recent college grads (ages 21-24) has averaged just under 9 percent over the past year. But the “underemployment rate” — the number you get when you add in those working part time and those who have stopped looking for work — is more than twice that. After adjusting for inflation, young college grads working full time make about $3,200 a year less than they did in 2000. Virtually every parent I know with kids in this age group is not just keeping them on their health plan; they’re helping to support them one way or another. To quote Paul Ryan (of all people, I know): “College graduates should not have to live out their 20s in their childhood bedrooms, staring up at fading Obama posters and wondering when they can move out and get going with life.” The challenge for the president is not simply to survive the “scandal du jour.” It is to make Obamacare work. It is to help today’s young people move forward. It is to move beyond the scandals to successes that are worth paying attention to. Based on what we’ve heard to date, I feel confident that the president won’t be impeached. But whether he will be celebrated as a great president is a question that ultimately will be answered by many of those underemployed college grads who are still staring at the old posters, as well as their parents, who are still paying the bills.

Remember the old adage: A dead fish rots from the head down To the editor, The events making news lately about Congressional investigations trying to get the truth on “who knew what and when” and those in positions of responsibility who say they

were not informed and knew nothing, remind me of the old adage: “A dead fish rots from the head down”. Don Onofrio Gilford

LETTERS Please contribute to buying new U.S. flags to fly downtown To the editor, Support the Main Street Initiative in its efforts to raise funds for the purchase of NEW flags for display throughout the downtown area. The old flags were wearing and shabby, AND made in Taiwan. Main Street Initiative has replaced all the flags and staffs with MADE IN AMERICA flags and staffs, and further, purchased them from a LOCAL store, Trustworthy Hardware in Lakeport. Further, they have purchased new barrels to line all of downtown area and planting red, white, and blue flowers in them. They are being helped with this by Petal Pushers, another local business. Downtown will truly be a blessed sight come Memorial Day and the parade will be a wonderful site.

The association has attempted to raise the funds publicly and at this writing are approximately $3,000 short short. Just recently, the citizens supported a new football field by donating $1 million dollars, and again the public supported the hospital with a $4 million dollar fund raising. This small amount going toward memorializing and celebrating our veterans from the past and the present should not be a problem. Contributions can be made to this cause by donating to any of the downtown merchants. Randy Bullerwell of the All My Life Jewelry at 639 Main Street is the easiest. Brenda Baer Laconia

I always been a contributor & have taught my kids to do same To the editor, While I harbor no personal animosity toward Mr. Young, as he would have readers believe, he must be suffering from delusions of grandeur and paranoia if he believes I’m out to “financially damage” him and his radio program. In his attempt to portray me as the villain, he paints a picture of himself being the martyr being attacked by “liberals” who want to deprive him of his livelihood. If he feels “liberals” are out to get him – he gives himself too much credit. As Mr. Young and conservatives often do when they are finding it difficult to defend their positions, they initiate char-

acter assassination. Young questions my motives and character by suggesting that I’m cowardly and a “loony socialist” living off those who work and pay taxes. It may surprise him to know that I worked two and three jobs (much like him) my entire working career - not unlike many working class individuals. Now that I’m retired, I’ve cut back to only one job. Fortunately, because I’ve saved and never overextended financially, I’m working because I enjoy what I’m doing and the people I work with. I’ve always considered myself a contributor and taught my children to do the same. L. J. Siden Gilmanton

Let’s not allow vets to ‘fall through the cracks’ with no insurance To the editor, This Memorial Day, we need to give our veterans the proper thanks and support they deserve. One important way is to provide access to affordable health insurance coverage for those who are currently uninsured. And we have just the vehicle to do this and it is expanding Medicaid in New Hampshire. There are 10,300 uninsured veterans and their spouses in New Hampshire and many are poor enough to benefit from an expanded Medicaid program. Is providing affordable, basic health insurance too much to ask for the service our veterans and their families have given?

our veterans and their families to “fall through the cracks” without health insurance. As a veteran and AARP member, I feel strongly that New Hampshire provide for those that have given so much and sacrificed to keep our country safe. We are not doing enough! Help fix that by asking your state elected officials to expand Medicaid in New Hampshire. Expanding Medicaid will also help the 18,000 hard-working 50- to 64-year-olds who struggle to access affordable health insurance. Medicaid expansion is good for people and is the right thing to do for our state. Chuck Engborg

LETTERS Sick & tired of how this Belknap Co. Convention is portrayed To the editor, On May 16th The Laconia Daily Sun wrote an article by Roger Amsden stating that, the Belknap County Convention majority had prejudged a proposal by the commissioners regarding a proposal to expand nursing services. There were accusations and false statements made regarding what this convention had done or was about to do made by the Belknap County Commissioners and the Belknap County administrator to this reporter. There was not a response to the allegations asked for or sought by this reporter as to the facts or the intent of the Belknap County Convention and at our meeting on May 21st a response to these allegations was read by the chair of the convention at our public meeting. Today (Tuesday) I read the article regarding the action and information given to the public as to what was done at this meeting and I was disappointed that the reporter failed to mention that those accusations were refuted, so I would like to submit a response that was given at this meeting so that the public can be advised of the whole truth. I for one am sick and tired of the way this convention is portrayed when we are only trying to do what we were elected to do — control government spending and look out for the best interest of our constituents. Maybe the next election, if this is not what the public wants, they can elect a rubber stamp. Our chairs response follows: “On Thursday, May 16, 2013, in The Laconia Daily Sun an article entitled “Commissioners say convention majority has already prejudged proposal to expanded nursing services” IS ENTIRELY FALSE. I am not one to air dirty laundry but since a public accusation has been made the other side of the story must see the light of day so that the public can know exactly what has occurred and that their faith has not been misplaced. There have been repeated claims that the delegation has made decisions in violation of the public’s right to know. AND THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW THERE IS NO

TRUTH TO THIS CLAIM. Regarding this subject — the Supplemental Appropriation Request: I think it is relevant to go through the time line of events. — On April 17, 2013, the commissioners proposed this subject to the convention. No information was available at this time. — A motion was then made to hold a public hearing and it was scheduled for Wednesday May 1, 2013. A few days later the only information we had received was the top section of the hand-out, handed out tonight. This was clearly insufficient background information to foster beneficial discussion in the hearing and therefore, a request was posed by these members for more complete information. — Regrettably, the first Public Hearing scheduled for Wednesday May 1, 2013 on the Supplemental Appropriation had to be canceled, as by Monday at 1:30 p.m. we still had NONE of the information requested. Unfortunately, the information was subsequently provided after the decision to cancel had been made. (In fact, it is interesting to note when I returned to my office later in the day, that within 50 minutes of canceling the meeting, the information was AVAILABLE and distributed to the delegates.) — Through a glitch at the county office the next hearing intended to be scheduled didn’t make into the papers until it was too late. — It is around this time that THE ALLEGED “PREDECIDED MOTION” occurred. — Last Monday (May 12), while reviewing the information, I contacted the county administrator to discuss this meeting’s presentation. This was to clarify the request for the supplemental appropriation which began at $187,000, and was then changed to $197,000. Yet the number I heard articulated was that the request was actually for $200,000. In that discussion, in an effort to protect THE ADMINISTRATOR from any EMBARRASSMENT caused by varying figures and an addition error, I offered to send her a corrected spreadsee next page

LETTERS Beware of ‘free’ money from Uncle Sam; freedom is the price To the editor, “Free money” is everywhere today. The federal government offers “free money” for police, fire, planning, housing, education, the list goes on. Just think, a federal government with almost 17 trillion in U.S. National debt is offering free money! The debt has rapidly increased by 6 trillion dollars in the past four years with the debt per taxpayer now over $148,000. See usdebtclock.org. Local governments are offered large amounts of free money for snowstorms, planning, labor and equipment. Many local officials find it hard to say “NO” to these giveaways. For just one example of many, police in a small town were offered “free money” called grants to pay for additional police officers for three years as long as the town agrees to continue funding the additional police at the end of the three years. This free

money offer is without consideration of whether the town really needs the additional police! Some believe that the local taxpayers are simply getting back money that was paid to the federal government. That sounds like a good excuse for taking the free money but the idea is a myth. Instead, the federal government is borrowing and printing money at a rate of over 85 billion dollars a month. What is the real purpose of these grants? A growing number of people now believe the money obligates local officials to assist higher government with promoting more local regulations and controls. A private property owner’s name is on the deed, but ownership has to do with rights and control over the property. “Private” property owners have see next page

from preceding page sheet to aid in her presentation. She welcomed the assistance. That spread sheet is on the bottom of the handout available for distribution this evening. And is by no means a motion. — No discussion between the delegation members occurred in the development of the corrected spreadsheet. It was exclusively a conversation between the administrator and myself. FOR THE RECORD I WOULD LIKE TO ASK IF ANY MEMEBERS OF THE DELEGATION HAD SEEN THE SECOND SPREADSHEET PRIOR TO THIS EVENING COMING FROM ME? — The administrator was then quoted in the May 13 Laconia Daily Sun as saying, “The intent of the leadership is not to deliberate issues in public. They’re going to come in with a motion already prepared”. This is in no way true. She was fully aware the context of the conversation and genesis of the information. She is also reported having said that it appears that the convention is intent on “not allowing the public to hear the discussion which led to the decision” but stopped short of calling it a violation of the Right-To-Know laws saying that it isn’t clear how many convention members took part in preparing the motion. — It is sad that such false information was presented by our county administrator.

— Yesterday, I thrice asked the administrator via an e-mail about this ALLEGED MOTION, to which she replied “we usually don’t get copies until the meeting”; “as I said before, I don’t have a copy of the prepared motion”; to the third request quoting her words in the newspaper to which I have received no reply. — So either the information given to the commissioners is not true or the paper did not report the meeting as it occurred. To which occurred I have no answer. — For the commissioners to rely on this information without checking the facts is also problematic. — This convention has been entirely open in our discussion. — Regarding the additional information requested; it is unwise to arrive at a meeting unprepared for effective discussion. We have a duty to our communities to make the best decisions available and information leads to a good decision making process. For example the census spreadsheets requested by Rep. Sylvia have helped us see trends in both population and expenses. Certainly the yearto-date expenditures per account are critical along with the fact that the expenses are primarily for outside services. Additionally, it is inefficient to digest information of any magnitude during a meeting. To suggest otherwise is foolish.” Rep. Robert Greemore Meredith/Gilford

from preceding page to get approval from the government to build, add, alter, operate a business, etc. Often times, owners are forced to hire costly professional lawyers, surveyors and engineers not because of real practical need but simply due to regulations or the opinion of government officials. Too often, government denies the approval to use private property without real justification. Surely, people should not be allowed to cause harm to others when using property but laws and regulations are continuing a longtime movement to restrict rights of private property owners. Then there is free money available to individuals for food, housing, fuel, the list is long. The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (NHDHHS) website (formerly called Welfare) shows their FY113 authorized budget as 1.9 BILLION dollars. Their website states: “the New Hampshire Legislature and governor have been working with the department in its efforts to improve the effectiveness, coordination and delivery of the many programs and services that HELP PEOPLE ACROSS THE STATE MEET THEIR NEEDS EACH AND EVERY DAY.” (EMPHASIS added) Many agencies make up the NHDHHS including the Commissioner Agency whose website explains, “The Office of the Commissioner is responsible for the overall management of NHDHHS”. The Commissioner Office “management agency” function alone expends over 700 million dollars and has over 150 employees making between $60,000 and $120,000 in pay per year. One has to wonder how much of the 1.9 billion actually gets to the people in need. Originally, the use of taxpayer money for social services was to prevent people from starving but now has grown to a massive bureaucracy. Sales and promotional techniques encourage the use of these “services”. It is no wonder why more people are now feeling like a fool if they do not apply for this free money. “After all” they say, “if one person doesn’t get the money someone else will”. Reports indicate that one out of five households in the U.S. receives food stamps and fraud is rampant. It may seem contradictory but you also hear that obesity has become an “epidemic”. Of course, everyone would like to help people truly in need. However, it sure seems unfair to the many people who give to charity and volunteer time with-

out pay to help people in need while government employees are paid high salaries to decide how to spend and redistribute billions of dollars forced from you in the form of taxes to “help people keep healthy and safe”. Undoubtedly, many believe the idea of using free money to increase central control is a myth similar to UFOs and Bigfoot. However, a growing number of people are convinced that free money is used by well organized and thought out plans. This includes the United Nations Agenda 21. It is apparent that the use of clever words like “sustainability” and “green” give the impression of saving the earth but a closer look reveals actions that serve to sustain and increase government control, growth and spending. It is ironic that the federal government preaches to and pays other countries billions to privatize for freedom while the U.S. moves quicker to socialize for communalism. Several New Hampshire State officials are promoting a government-run gambling establishment as a major contributor to save the state’s overspending problem. Just think of the idea, instead of substantially reducing spending, they are encouraging people to gamble as a means of increasing “revenue” for more government. For the people who understand and are concerned about the accumulation of government debt, spending and controls, consider ways to attempt reversal of this long time trend. Be sure to vote for people who share your concern. Get involved with local, county and state government boards and committees. Run to be a local or state official representative. Join in with some of the many groups such as the Belknap County Conservative Republicans and the N.H. Americans for Prosperity to discuss ideas about ways to reduce government. Write editorials to explain your concerns. Warn others about getting news from sources that benefit from big government such as those owned by NBC General Electric, that sells billions of dollars in health care machines and ABC Disney that sells entertainment. Many are afraid to get involved, especially with the recent news about the IRS targeting groups and reporters who raise concerns about government. Just think the IRS is also going to oversee Obamacare. Hopefully, they will not decline the payment of health care insurance claims to those who criticize the government. Undoubtedly, if people are intimisee next page

Shaker superintendent reports agreement with town over recreational use of school facilities BELMONT — Shaker Regional Superintendent Maria Dreyer told the School Board Thursday night that she and Selectman Ron Cormier met earlier this week and have agreed to allow the town’s Parks and Recreation Department use school facilities when they are not being used. Dreyer said the district’s primary concern regarding the town’s use of the facilities was security. She said the two have developed a system whereby the Parks and Recreation Director will secure the facilities on Monday through Thursdays and the Shaker Regional Facilities Manager has agreed to do it on Friday. Cormier said yesterday that he

learned the facility-use calender is posted on the school Website and agreed with Dreyer’s assessment that their meeting was productive and pleasant. Belmont Selectmen had addressed what they called at the time a lack of cooperation between the town’s Parks and Recreation Department and the Shaker Regional School District regarding playing fields and inside facilities at Belmont’s school. Dreyer, who was at the selectman’s meeting said she would look into it and address it with the school board. She told them Thursday evening she had a security contract regarding access with Belmont. — Gail Ober

BRIDGE from page 2 The spectacular collapse unfolded about 7 p.m. Thursday on the north end of the four-lane bridge near Mount Vernon, about 60 miles north of Seattle and 40 miles south of the Canada border. “He looked in the mirrors and it just dropped out of sight,” Cynthia Scott, the wife of truck driver William Scott, said from the couple’s home near Spruce Grove, Alberta. “I spoke to him seconds after it happened. He was just horrified.” The truck driver works for Mullen Trucking in Alberta, the Washington State Patrol said. The tractor-trailer was hauling a housing for drilling equipment southbound when the top right front corner of the load struck several of the bridge’s trusses, the patrol said. Scott, 41, remained at the scene and cooperated with investigators. He voluntarily gave a blood sample for an alcohol test and was not arrested. Scott, has been driving truck for 20 years and hauling specialized loads for more than 10. “He gets safety awards, safety bonuses ... for doing all these checks,

for hiring the right pilot cars and pole cars,” his wife said. Initially, it wasn’t clear if the bridge just gave way on its own. But Washington State Patrol Chief John Batiste blamed it on the too-tall load. The vertical clearance from the roadway to the beam is 14.6 feet. The truck made it off the bridge, but two other vehicles went into the water about 25 feet below as the structure crumbled. Dan Sligh and his wife were in their pickup heading to a camping trip when he said the bridge before them disappeared in a “big puff of dust.” “I hit the brakes and we went off,” Sligh told reporters from a hospital. Bryce Kenning, of Mount Vernon, said the bridge seemed to explode in front of him. The 20-year-old slammed the brakes and could see the edge of the pavement approaching, but there was nothing he could do. “It was like time was frozen — like a roller coaster where you’re not attached to the tracks,” Kenning said in a phone interview. “I’m sure it was just one of the loudest sounds ever to see next page

from preceding page dated and choose not to speak out, government is sure to continue growing rapidly. Getting involved attempts to avoid the next government financial “bubble waiting to burst”, save private property rights, improve objective education, restore freedom and ensure individual liberty. Free money is hard to pass up and contributes to the long-time success

in the advancement of bigger government with the goal of social communitarianism. After all, we are now hearing that people belong to the community and individual liberty is selfish and careless of the trees, animals and planet. Be aware of the power of free money. Robert Daniels Alton

Public will have opportunity to comment on proposed sewer rates at hearing on Tuesday LACONIA — The City Council will hold a public hearing on a proposal to increase the sewer rates when it meets on Tuesday, May 28, beginning at 7 p.m. The sewer rate consists of a fixed quarterly fee and a consumption charge, which are currently $30 and $3.30 per hundred cubic feet (HCF), or 748 gallons, respectively. The council proposes to raise the quarterly fee for metered accounts to $32.50 as of September 1, 2013, to $33.25 as of September 1, 2014 and to $34 as of September 1, 2015 and the consumption charge to $3.69, $4.19 and $4.75 at the same time. The non-metered flat rate for seweronly accounts would increase from $340 to $412 as of July 1, 2014 and to

$452 as of July 1, 2015. For metered properties, the average residential sewer bill, based on annual consumption of 120 HCF, is projected to rise from $516 to $572.80 in 2014, $635.80 in 2015 and $706 in 2016, or by 11-percent each year. The rates support the Sanitary Sewer Fund, which finances the operating expenses and capital outlays of the system. At the current rates the fund is running an annual deficit of more $600,000. Finance Director Donna Woodaman projects that the proposed rate schedule would shrink the deficit to $287,711 in 2014 and to $69,442 in 2015 before returning a positive balance of $180,994 in 2016. — Michael Kitch

from preceding page hear this thing explode and fall into the water like that, but I didn’t hear a thing. I just witnessed it happening in front of me.”Ed Scherbinski, vice president of Mullen Trucking, said in an interview with The Associated Press that state officials had approved of the company’s plan to drive the oversize load along I-5 to Vancouver, Wash., and the company hired a local escort to help navigate the route. Mike Allende, a state Department of Transportation spokesman, confirmed the truck had a permit. “We’re still trying to figure out why it hit the bridge,” Allende said. “It’s ultimately up to the trucking company to figure out whether it can get through.” State officials approved the trucking company to carry a load as high as 15 feet, 9 inches, according to the permit released by the state. However, the southbound vertical clearance on the Skagit River bridge is as little as 14 feet, 9 inches, state records show. The bridge’s curved overhead girders are higher in the center of the bridge

but sweep lower toward a driver’s right side. The bridge has a maximum clearance of about 17 feet, but there is no signage to indicate how to safely navigate the bridge with a tall load. The permit specifically describes the route the truck would take, though it includes a qualification that the state “Does Not Guarantee Height Clearance.” It’s not rare for trucks to strike bridges in Washington state — it’s just that such accidents don’t usually cause the structures to collapse. The state DOT said there were 21 bridge-strikes involving trucks last year, 24 in 2011 and 14 in 2010. There were no signs leading up to the Skagit River bridge to warn about its clearance height. State Transportation Secretary Lynn Peterson said that under federal and state standards, the clearance is tall enough to not require signage. Inslee said it will cost $15 million to repair the bridge. The federal government has already promised the state $1 million in emergency funding.

LACONIA — With a week remaining until the Laconia Muskrats report for their fourth season at Robbie Mills Field, general manager Noah Crane is still seeking homes for half-a-dozen ballplayers. “We ‘re short of host families,” Crane said yesterday. “Players will be arriving next weekend and will begin practicing on Sunday in anticipation of opening the season at home on Thursday, June 6. We’re six homes short,” he continued. “The community has always stepped up and I’m sure it will again.” All players are college students on summer break as the Muskrats compete in the New England Collegiate Baseball League. Crane said that all that is expected of host families is “a spare bed, access SHERIFF from page 2 “For too long the sheriff has been victimizing the people he’s meant to serve with his discriminatory policy,” said Cecillia D. Wang, director of the ACLU Immigrants’ Right Project. “Today we’re seeing justice for everyone in the county.” Stanley Young, the lead lawyer who argued the case against Arpaio, said Snow set a hearing for June 14 where he will hear from the two sides on how to make sure the orders in the ruling are carried out. A small group of Latinos alleged in their lawsuit that Arpaio’s deputies pulled over some vehicles only to make immigration status checks. The group asked Snow to issue injunctions barring the sheriff’s office from discriminatory policing and the judge ruled that more remedies could be ordered in the future. The sheriff, who has repeatedly denied the allegations, won’t face jail

to laundry and occasional meals, especially breakfast and that can be a bowl of cereal, not bacon and eggs every morning,” In return, family members receive free admission to all games — home and away — discounts on Muskrats’ merchandise and a seat at the host family dinner and other special events. “And they enjoy the company of a potential major league ballplayer for two months,” he said. Crane said that more information, including testimonials from past host families, is posted on the team’s website, laconiamuskrats.com under “get involved.” Anyone interested hosting a player for the season should contact Crane at 1-864-380-2873 or by e-mail at noah@ laconiamuskrats.com. Crane said he would be pleased to answer any questions as well as introduce anyone to a host family. time or fines as a result of the ruling. The group also accused the sheriff of ordering some immigration patrols not based on reports of crime but rather on letters and emails from Arizonans who complained about people with dark skin congregating in an area or speaking Spanish. The group’s attorneys pointed out that Arpaio sent thank-you notes to some people who wrote the complaints. The sheriff said his deputies only stop people when they think a crime has been committed and that he wasn’t the person who picked the location of the patrols. His lawyers also said there was nothing wrong with the thank-you notes. Those who pushed the lawsuit weren’t seeking money damages but rather a declaration that Arpaio’s office racially profiles and an order that requires it to make policy changes.

Krista and Brett Loring, owners of the Paradise Beach Club at Weirs Beach, are the first venue in the Lakes Region to offer their patrons V.I.P. packages. (Laconia Daily Sun photo/Adam Drapcho)

Paradise Beach Club introduces VIP service to region By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — This summer, on most weekend nights, people will begin filling Weirs Beach nightclubs. At the Paradise Beach Club, with its Key West themed interior and menu and nightly entertainment, owners Krista and Bret Loring said it’s usual to fill to capacity and see a line form at the door. Some people won’t have to wait in line, though. They’ll walk past the line and be escorted through the crowd to their own private seating area. While other patrons will crowd the bar for drink service, three or four people deep, those in the private seating area will have their own, dedicated server. It’s the V.I.P. treatment, and the Lorings are proud to be among the first venues in New Hampshire — and the only ones in the Lakes Region — to offer the experience. The Lorings have owned and operated the Paradise Beach Club since 2000, taking over a space that was originally built as a bowling alley and more

recently the site of the Buzzard’s Nest restaurant. Krista said she and Bret were clear in the feelings of the establishment they took over. “We absolutely hated it,” she said. They wasted no time in converting the space to a bar and restaurant that would fit right in at Key West. Every year since, they’ve sought to add new wrinkles to their business. They added a second 40-foot bar, a D.J. booth for electronic entertainment during set breaks for the live acts, and a “Tiki bar” to serve an outdoor seating area. This year’s additions include a renovated front facade for the building’s exterior, and inside, a ropedoff seating area near the stage, where the Paradise Beach Club will serve patrons who purchase either the V.I.P. bottle service or all-inclusive V.I.P. package. Prices of either package will vary based on the number of people in each party and, in the case of bottle service, which liquor is chosen. However, for both, packages for parties of about eight people will see next page

Lackey pitches Red Sox past Indians, 8-1 BOSTON (AP) — John Lackey allowed two hits in seven innings, Mike Carp hit a three-run homer and the Boston Red Sox beat the Cleveland Indians 8-1 on a rainy Friday night. It was the second straight strong performance by Lackey, who missed all last season following Tommy John elbow surgery. Last Sunday he gave up one hit and one unearned run in six innings of a 5-1 win at Minnesota. He left that game after a three-hour rain delay. After a 44-minute delay before Friday’s game, Lackey (3-4) struck out eight, walked three and gave up an unearned run while pitching through a steady rain. He allowed only two of the 25 batters he faced to hit the ball out of the infield. Lackey finished his night by striking out Jason Giambi and Mark Reynolds to end the seventh. As he walked toward the dugout, fans chanted, “Lackey! Lackey!” The Indians fell out of first place in the AL Central and a half-game behind the Detroit Tigers, who beat the Minnesota Twins 6-0. The Red Sox remained one game behind the AL East-leading New York Yankees, who beat the Tampa Bay Rays 9-4.

Carp broke an 0-for-21 slump in the second inning with his third homer of the year. That also ended a 20-inning scoreless streak for Justin Masterson (7-3). The homer followed a walk to David Ortiz and a single by Mike Napoli. After Carp’s homer, the Indians made it 3-1 in the third with the help of a wild throw by catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Singles by Reynolds and Michael Brantley put runners at first and second before Lackey retired the next two batters. On a double-steal attempt, Saltalamacchia threw the ball into left field, allowing Reynolds to score and Brantley to reach third. Jason Kipnis then walked and stole second, but the threat ended when Asdrubal Cabrera grounded out. The Red Sox made it 4-1 in the sixth when they loaded the bases with one out. Daniel Nava was hit by a pitch and Dustin Pedroia and Ortiz singled. Napoli then grounded to shortstop Cabrera, who threw to second baseman Kipnis for a forceout. Kipnis’ throw to first pulled Nick Swisher off the bag as Napoli reached safely and Nava scored.

has gone out just loving it.” On Saturday night, with popular band Tigerlily scheduled to perform, the V.I.P. area has been booked solid. Krista thinks it’s a trend that is sure to continue, especially as more of her regulars see what it’s all about. “You feel like royalty. You walk by everyone in line, you’re escorted to your table, it’s your night.” The Lorings recognize that part of the draw for Weirs Beach is nostalgia, as visitors return to seek reminders of vacations they enjoyed years ago. Even so, they believe the area can retain a connection to its history without being shackled to it. “Nostalgia’s good, to a point,” said Krista. Bret added, “But you’ve got to keep it fresh... We try to do something new to the place every year.

cost in the $200 range. With both packages, the patrons receive express and complimentary entry into the club, a reserved seating area monitored by security staff, and a server dedicated to the party. The bottle service option allows parties to purchase a 750 ml bottle of liquor, which the server would mix for patrons as needed. The all-inclusive package would allow patrons to order drinks of their choice. While the V.I.P. treatment might be familiar to those who frequent nightclubs in major metropolitan areas, Krista said local patrons are sometimes confused by the packages. However, Paradise Beach Club opened for the season a few weeks ago, and many have taken advantage of the new opportunity. Bret said, “Everybody

DEATHS from page one He said the next thing he knew the area was surrounded by police cars and fire trucks. He said a police officer came to the marina and asked all of the employees to go inside one of the bays and close the doors. He said the security measure lasted about five minutes. Chief Lewandoski said an officer was sent to the house for a “welfare check” and made a “discovery.” Tilton Police Lt. Ryan Martin said Tilton, Belmont, and N.H. Hampshire State Police made a “felony traffic stop” just opposite from the Pirate’s Cove miniature golf course on Rte. 3 and the person, who he said was alone in the car and was detained was Shawn Carter. He said Carter was taken into custody by the Belmont Police. Tilton Police said the BOLO alert indicated Carter could be armed and officers were advised to use caution. The owner of the house at 20 Sunset Drive said he also owns the nearby mobile park and the house next door to it. He said he rented the house about six weeks ago to Priscilla Carter and her two adult sons, Timothy and Shawn. He said the family had good references and he hadn’t had any issues with them. He said Priscilla was a nice woman and that her son Timothy often assisted his own son with some work he was doing at the neighboring home. He also said Timothy could be seen raking the yard. The owner he had not been allowed into the house but that everyone in the immediate area was very upset by what they had heard. He heard there was a problem when one of his other tenants called him and told him it looked like a crime scene. TORNADO from page 2 all students survived. District officials and teachers met with pupils and their parents Thursday to give everyone a chance to say goodbye before heading into summer vacation. Simpson said that, having been born and raised in Oklahoma, she knew what it meant to deal with tornadoes. The state, in the heart of Tornado Alley, has averaged more than 50 tornadoes per year since record-keeping began in 1950. “Not one parent blamed us because they’re Oklahomans, too, and they know what a tornado means and they know what it means in school,” Simpson said. “We practice our procedures. We get in our safest places.” Simpson said teachers and students had spent much of Monday morning celebrating their achievements and practicing this year’s sixth-grade graduation.

Then attention turned to the sky. When the sirens blared, the principal walked the school to make sure everyone was prepared. “Teachers were rubbing kids on the back, singing songs,” while the students were crouched with their hands behind their necks, Simpson said. When Simpson got to her office, a fifth-grade teacher told her the storm was just southwest of the school. “I got on the intercom and said, ‘It’s here,’” Simpson said. She rode out the storm in a bathroom. “You feel things trickling down on you from the ceiling, then those things become chunks of things,” Simpson said. “I yelled and said, ‘In God’s name, go away!’ I yelled it about four times. And then it was gone.” While debris was still flying, Simpson said, she told others, “I’ve got to get to the kids. I got out of the see next page

The immediate area was sectioned off with yellow crime-scene tape and traffic was being routed around the area. No one in the area said they had heard or seen anything unusual coming from the home and they didn’t know the Carters. Winnisquam Marina owner Ed Crawford said Shawn Carter had come on to his property twice. He said once his son and some others were working late into the evening getting ready for the upcoming boating season when Shawn Carter came into the building and walked up the stairs to a storage area. He said he left when he was told to leave and Crawford said he called the police and reported it. Crawford said the police came and took Shawn Carter into custody for what he was told were open warrants. He said the marina had gotten “some kind of order” for Carter to stay off of the property and hadn’t had any further encounters with him. At the same time yesterday, the Inter-Lakes School District campus in Meredith was placed on what was termed a “soft lock down,” meaning no one could come into or leave the building. Police from Meredith and the New Hampshire State Police were at Inter-Lakes High School and Inter-Lakes Elementary School yesterday afternoon. Lt. Keith True said his department had gotten a the same BOLO for a car but had since learned that whoever police were looking for was in custody. The students were all released at 3 p.m. Inter-Lakes Superintendent Mary Ellen Ormond said there had been an incident elsewhere and police said the individual involved may be headed toward Meredith. She said Meredith Police advised the soft lock down.

from preceding page bathroom and the whole neighborhood was gone.” She quickly tended to the younger students then saw that students in grades 4, 5 and 6 were heading to a nearby church. She asked her husband to help the second- and third-graders — she hadn’t seen any of them yet. They were in a part of the school that was particularly hard-hit. School counselor Kristin Atchley said surviving class members could tell while still trapped in the rubble who wasn’t going to make it.

“They knew before they got pulled out,” Atchley said. Simpson, sobbing, said she had already been to three funerals and will have gone to four more by the end of next week. One of the Friday funerals was for 8-year-old Kyle Davis. Hundreds of mourners packed a Baptist church — many wearing T-shirts with “K. Davis (hash)16” emblazoned on the back to memorialize his love of soccer. Teammates passed around a soccer ball and a Sharpie to sign before the service. “It’s hard to believe that someone who was only

On a display in the church lobby were some of Kyle’s trophies and other medals from sports and school, as well as a poster Kyle made on which he wrote, “When I grow up, I want to be a soccer champion.”

Cupola and Energy Committees presented award for Academy Building GILMANTON — Gilmanton’s Building, Cupola and Energy Committees were recognized for their work in preserving the Academy Building, now the Town Offices by the New Hampshire Preservation Alliance at an award ceremony on May 7. Also recognized were Fifield Building Restoration and Winn Mountain Restorations. The award celebrates well-executed stewardship projects for this iconic landmark that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and stands in the Gilmanton Corners Historic District. Well-articulated information about the building’s significance, important features and preservation strategies convinced town leaders and citizens to choose restoration over replacement or “no action” alternatives. The Land and Community Heritage Investment

Program and the N.H Community Development Finance Authority were critical funding partners. Gilmanton Academy was chartered in 1794. The current 1894 building was built after a fire destroyed the previous structure just before centennial celebrations were to be held. The Academy had such prominence and was so revered by local citizens that fundraising began immediately after the fire and a new building was ready for students less than 8 months later. The Academy’s last class graduated in 1910, and from 1916 to 1966 the building was used first as the Town’s see next page

Steve Bedard, former selectperson Rachel Hatch, and John Dickey worked with Town committees on projects to preserve the Gilmanton Academy Building (Town Offices). Their work was recognized by an award from the NH Preservation Alliance on May 8. (Courtesy photo)

‘Captain Jim’ presented lifetime achievement award by NH Travel Council CONCORD — The New Hampshire Travel Council’s 2013 Richard Hamilton Lifetime Achievement award was presented to Jim Morash, better known as “Captain Jim,” during the Governor’s Conference on Tourism awards luncheon in Concord. Morash, M/S Mount Washington captain, co-owner and VP of operations, has been a familiar face in Lakes Region tourism for more than 25 years. From from preceding page high school, later as the elementary school, and still later as a museum. Today, the Academy houses Town offices and provides space for voting, and for public meetings, dances, concerts and other social functions. Two recent projects restored the cupola and weatherized the building. A committee that included former select board member Rachel Hatch led an effort to secure town and LCHIP funds for the cupola’s restoration after the Town noticed deterioration in the tower, removed it, and stored in a town garage in 2008 without a clear plan of action. Fifield Building Restoration got it back in place in time for the traditional July 4th parade which stopped in front of the landmark to celebrate the cupola’s return in 2011. Most recently, a weatherization project, in coordination with the Town’s energy committee, made the project more energy efficient. Steve Bedard donated a building assessment, and he and John Dickey coordinated proposals from outside contractors that restored 51 original windows and added insulation to ready the building for future generations. The New Hampshire Preservation Alliance is the statewide membership organization dedicated to preserving historic buildings, communities and landscapes through leadership, education and advocacy. Current priorities include providing assistance to community leaders and promoting the use of easements, barn preservation and tax incentives.

an early age, he worked his way through the ship’s ranks, working as deckhand, deck officer, purser, skipper, pilot and director of marketing. He has been actively involved in many community organizations, including the Lakes Region Association, Lakes Management Advisory Council and the Meredith Rotary Club, which awarded him with the Paul Harris Fellowship Award. The New Hampshire Travel Council presents the Richard Hamilton Lifetime Achievement Award to an individual who has made lasting and permanent contributions to the travel and tourism industries during the previous year. Other qualifications include leadership, generosity within the community, corporate giving and ethical business practices. “I am the luckiest man in the world,” said Morash about being able to live and work in the Lakes Region. “I love my job and the area I live in.” At right: Jim Morash, better known as “Captain Jim”, was presented the New Hampshire Travel Council’s 2013 Richard Hamilton Lifetime Achievement award during the Governor’s Conference on Tourism awards luncheon in Concord.

Lakes Region Real Estate Market Report / Roy Sanborn

Going to the dogs I got a call from an agent last week that was concerned that the last article I did called “Home Thefts Increase in the Lakes Region” might be misconstrued by the general public. The article was as a tongue in cheek recap of some really, really great deals that happened in April. She was very concerned, however, that people might think that there was some hanky-panky going on with some of the transactions that occurred either on the part of the agents or lenders and that someone wasn’t doing their job. Trust me, that definitely isn’t the case and it was not the point of the article. If any of you have bought or sold a house in the past year, you understand that you’d have a better chance of stealing the Mona Lisa today than pulling off some kind of shady real estate transaction. Things are just that strict right now in the real estate world. All of the transactions were at arm’s length and the agents involved are some of the very best and knowledgeable professionals in the business. These “deals” or “steals” are just a function of where we are in the market place today. My point was that now is the time to take advantage of these great prices and great financing opportunities. I apologize to anyone that might have thought otherwise. We got a new Boxer puppy this week to keep

my older Dobe company and it got me thinking. Mostly about, “what was I thinking?” But what if things take a turn for the worse and my wife throws me out with the dogs. Where would I go? She loves the dogs as much, if not more than I do, but after a sleepless night with a 12 week old puppy anything could happen. It’s more likely that she would throw me out before the dogs, but I am considering the worst case scenario here. Anyway, as we always have had a dog and sometimes two or three. We have always put our critter’s interests at the very top of the list when we were looking for property. If you love dogs, you know what I mean. You truly believe that a house is not a home unless you have a dog. And, more importantly, you understand that your dog is gracious enough to allow you live with him (or her) as long as you bring home the bacon, so to speak. For us, a home has to have an adequate yard for the dogs to run and have relative seclusion or privacy. The biggest thing is that the yard has to be fenced and that’s hard to find. While an invisible fence works fine for many people, I like to keep the other critters out of the yard. I’m not saying that you should rule out a property that is not fenced if everything else works, but fencing in a half acre or an acre of land can get a little expensive. So, what’s out there for property that you could consider “pet ready?” The open concept ranch at 35 Regan Way in Laconia does have a nice, but small, fenced in back yard. This place is probably more suitable for miniature and small breeds of dogs. Mastiffs should look elsewhere. I mentioned this property a few weeks ago as it is in “move in ready” condition for humans, too. This 1,560-square-foot, three bed, two bath home was built in 2007 and features hardwood and tile floors, cathedral ceilings, an eat-in kitchen, a deck, full basement, and a two car garage. This home is offered at $269,900. see next page

Sen. Andrew Hosmer helped honor Irene Jewett from East Andover at the State House on May 6. Jewett received the 2013 Vaughan Award in the Executive Council Chamber for outstanding volunteer service to older citizens in Merrimack County. Mrs. Jewett, age 92, was a long-time volunteer with the East Andover Fire Precinct and the Andover Rescue Squad retiring as an EMT when she turned 75. Irene maintains an active interest in helping local individuals in need of assistance and support. She is still referred to as the “Mayor of East Andover” and “the glue that holds the town together.” (Courtesy photo)

AN AFFORDABLE ALTERNATIVE baths, great room with cathedral ceilings and stone fireplace, kitchen with granite counter tops, three season porch, and separate guest quarters. There’s also a kennel, but she thinks the guest quarters are more appropriate. We’d rate this property at Four Bones. It is on the market for $339,000 so take your pup for a ride and go take a look. Lastly, there’s a Five Bone home located at 261 Clough Hill Road in Loudon. This property has 164 acres with 20 acres of pasture for the pups to roam on, a nine stall dog run, in-floor heat so they stay toasty warm, and a gas fireplace to curl up to. The high quality house was built in 2004 and has 4,328-square-feet of living space, five bedrooms with a first floor master suite, four and a half baths, a custom kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless appliances, library, a sunroom, and even a 48’ x 48’ four stall horse barn for what my Dobe thinks are very, very tall dogs. As this property is on the market for $995,000 it is obviously not in every dog’s price range. Do you know how many bags of dog food you can buy for that much money?

from preceding page I showed the MLS sheet to my Dobe and she rates it Two Bones Out Of Five. Our new Boxer has not seen enough property yet to rate anything. A truly pet ready property is located at 200 Parade Road in Meredith. It is so ready that you can run your own pet boarding and grooming business there. Currently operated as the Four Paws Pet Inn, this property consists of a 1,248-square-foot, open concept three bedroom, two bath home on four acres. It has a converted 800-square-foot horse barn serving to keep fido comfy and three fenced in play yards. This contemporary style saltbox has a large great room with vaulted ceilings and stone fireplace, hardwood floors, a nice kitchen with granite countertops, a screened porch, and a sun deck. This sounds like a great opportunity for someone to take over a going concern and make a living off us crazy dog lovers that think nothing is too much for our furry friends. This property is priced at $315,000 and is rated Four Bones. My Dobe really liked the property at 241 Intervale Road in Canterbury as it is on a five acre lot with about an acre fenced in. She also liked the fact that it is an energy efficient, Crockett panel, log home with post and beam construction. I had to explain that it was not the Davy Crockett she saw on NetFlix the other day. But the house looks fantastic with 2,684-square-feet of living space, three beds, three

Rare Superman comic found in house insulation MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — It’s considered the Holy Grail of comic books: Action Comics No. 1 from 1938, featuring the debut of Superman. And David Gonzales found one mixed in with old newspapers insulating a house he was renovating in a small town in Minnesota. Gonzales did some research that confirmed the comic with a cover showing the Man of Steel holding a car over his head was valuable, though it’s not worth as much as it could have been. The book sat undisturbed in the ceiling of the house in Hoffman for over 70 years. But a few days after he found it, Gonzales said, he got into a heated discussion with his wife’s aunt about its value, and she wanted a cut of the money. He said he also grew irritated because every time she would turn a page, crumbs of paper would fall out.

Finally he said, he grabbed it and tossed it aside, accidentally tearing the back cover. “I don’t care about the money,” he recalled telling her. “I don’t care. It’s my comic book. I can burn it if I want to.” Gonzales said his wife’s aunt backed down when his wife warned her he was serious. Partly because of the damage and partly because see COMIC page 31

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis

your money. You feel an uncontrolled vibration running through the financial sector, and you’re right to fold up the wallet. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The problem with accepting what you can’t change is that most of the time it’s hard to tell whether you have an influence on things. You’re in just the mood to assume you can change everything and go for it. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll spend a fair amount of mental energy dreaming about that which is out of reach. But would having it really be that awesome? Sometimes the thing that is most appealing about something is that we can’t have it. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 25). You feel like you can freely say no, which is true freedom. Obligations will be lifted, and the only expectations of you that matter are your own. New business begins in June. Keep your team small. July brings the start of relationships that will last many years. Make room for new family by marriage or birth in November. Scorpio and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 2, 33, 39 and 40.

by Chad Carpenter

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re moving fast and feeling a bit reckless. You could accidentally make someone angry. If this happens, acknowledge that what you did caused bad feelings so you can move past it. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Nothing is intrinsically difficult today, but you could make it seem that way if you approach with the wrong attitude. Letting go of your emotional resistance is the hardest part of learning. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be rather tired of gathering information. You want to apply it! You are eager to find out what you can do. This weekend gives you everything you need to get started, including a big push. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are not so focused on your own challenges that you fail to see the challenges of others. Employ your powers of empathy, and you’ll attract loyal helpers to your side. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Changing thought patterns is tricky. Reinforcement from the outside will help. Some environments are built to increase harmony, serenity and health. Go where you feel best. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Those who tell you to believe in yourself are missing the point, which is to get in motion regardless of your thoughts, beliefs, moods or anything else. There’s something you must do, so just do it. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The atmosphere may seem wild, hectic and unsupportive of prolonged focus. That’s why it will be helpful to get an excellent start and keep a schedule. Use tools to help you stay on track. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Make a list of what you want to do, have and be. Don’t worry -- you won’t be bound to this list. Even if you don’t achieve anything on it, you are still better off for making a list, because it brings awareness. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You hate the same ol’, same ol’, so this will come as excellent news: It’s all different for you today. The monotony will be broken in every way, shape and form by this moon. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You will be generous with your smiles, with your help and with many other things except perhaps

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, May 25, 2013— Page 23

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Saturday, May 25, the 145th day of 2013. There are 220 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 25, 1961, President John F. Kennedy told Congress: “I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth.” On this date: In 1787, the Constitutional Convention began at the Pennsylvania State House (Independence Hall) in Philadelphia after enough delegates had shown up for a quorum. In 1810, Argentina began its revolt against Spanish rule with the forming of the Primera Junta in Buenos Aires. In 1895, playwright Oscar Wilde was convicted of a morals charge in London; he was sentenced to two years in prison. In 1935, Babe Ruth hit the 714th and final home run of his career, for the Boston Braves, in a game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. In 1942, U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Joseph Stilwell, frustrated over being driven out of Burma by Japanese troops during World War II, told reporters in Delhi, India: “I claim we got a hell of a beating.” In 1946, Transjordan (now Jordan) became a kingdom as it proclaimed its new monarch, Abdullah I. In 1963, the Organisation of African Unity was founded in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. (The OAU was disbanded in 2002 in favor of the African Union.) In 1968, the Gateway Arch in St. Louis was dedicated by Vice President Hubert Humphrey and Interior Secretary Stewart Udall. In 1979, 273 people died when an American Airlines DC-10 crashed just after takeoff from Chicago’s O’Hare Airport. Six-year-old Etan Patz disappeared while on his way to a school bus stop in lower Manhattan. In 1981, daredevil Dan Goodwin, wearing a Spiderman costume, scaled the outside of Chicago’s Sears Tower in 7½ hours. In 1986, an estimated 7 million Americans participated in “Hands Across America” to raise money for the nation’s hungry and homeless. In 1988, the final episode of “St. Elsewhere” aired on NBC-TV. Ten years ago: In a historic vote cast under intense U.S. pressure, Israel’s government conditionally approved by a narrow margin an internationally backed “road map” to peace. Nestor Kirchner was sworn in as Argentina’s first popularly elected president since the country’s financial meltdown in December 2001. Five years ago: A tornado tore through Parkersburg, Iowa, killing eight people. NASA’s Phoenix Mars Lander arrived to begin searching for water on the Red Planet. Seven crashes and spinouts marred the first Indianapolis 500 since the two warring open-wheel series (CART and IRL) came together under the IndyCar banner; Scott Dixon stayed ahead of the trouble to win the race. One year ago: The private company SpaceX made history as its Dragon capsule docked with the International Space Station. In Syria, more than 100 people were killed in one day in a cluster of villages in central Homs province; U.N. investigators blamed pro-government gunmen for at least some of the killings, but the Syrian regime denied responsibility.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, May 25, 2013— Page 25

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Dear Annie: I am one of five middle-aged sisters. My father died four years ago, and shortly after, my mother moved to an apartment near me. As her health has declined, I’ve gradually become a partial caregiver. I am with her every day, sometimes for six hours or more. Mom insists on paying me. She can easily afford it. I was conservative with my hours, and the rate was comparable to in-home services. I am an excellent caregiver and pleased to help. Mom knows her care is better than she’d get anywhere else. She is content and wants to stay where she is. Her doctors concur. After a year of “salary,” my sisters hit the ceiling. I am Mom’s power of attorney, co-trustee and executor, and I’ve been 100 percent honest. I love my sisters, but they have no faith in me. They have mentioned moving Mom away from me. Should I just go ahead and take over? Legally? Financially? Isn’t there a way we can all simply get along? -- Outcast Sister Dear Outcast: Taking over seems guaranteed to provoke your sisters. Instead, invite them to participate in Mom’s care. Explain in detail what Mom needs. Perhaps they would like to take turns caring for her to see for themselves the amount of time and effort required. Ask whether they would prefer hiring an outside caregiver, and let them research the cost. Show them in writing the number of hours you spend with Mom. They need to appreciate what you do without feeling guilty or resentful or, worse, thinking that you are not deserving of any compensation. Dear Annie: The other day I mentioned to my oldest daughter that her youngest sibling seemed overly close with her youngest child. My daughter replied, “Oh, that’s just the youngest child syndrome. Everyone spends more time on the

youngest and gives them everything. You do, too, Mom.” This statement hurt a little. When I went home, I thought about it and would like to clarify: Yes, when my older children grew up, I had more time to spend with the youngest, but that doesn’t mean I loved him more. Yes, over the years, our expenses have gone down, so we could buy more things, but that doesn’t mean I loved him more. Yes, with fewer children around to care for, I could take him places that I never took the others, but that doesn’t mean I loved him more. My older kids were with me when we couldn’t afford restaurants, so we had more family dinners at home. There was no money for movies, so we built a snowman. Instead of fancy trips, we read and talked about those exotic places. But, daughter, I never loved you less. -- Your Mother Dear Mother: For every older child who believes the youngest is indulged, there is a younger child who believes the oldest is favored. Thank you for making it clear that in most families each child is loved deeply and completely, even when the surrounding circumstances change. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “A Little Wiser,” the man whose wife of 41 years had breast cancer. The experience of almost losing her transformed their relationship. They could no longer remember the things that bothered them. They no longer spoke hurtful words. They no longer saw the petty annoyances. That letter made me cry. My husband wondered what happened. I gave him the paper, and he started crying, too. You see, 18 months ago, I had a stroke. I am still recovering. Tell “Wiser” that we had the very same “deficiencies” in our memories and discovered each other all over again. Thank you for printing it. -- Love It

LACONIA — Lakes Region Community Services (LRCS) agency staff, board members and volunteers gathered at the downtown Laconia Office on May 15 for a breakfast gathering to recognize volunteers who contributed their time and services to help LRCS carry out its mission. This year, 26 individuals volunteered at the LRCS Laconia and Plymouth offices. Included were seven undergraduate and graduate student interns from the University of NH, Plymouth State University and Lakes Region Community College. Working at a large and varied social service agency, the interns received hands-on experience. “Internships offer a wonderful real-life learning opportunity for students and the students in turn contribute their energy, enthusiasm and fresh ideas to our agency,” commented Christine Santaniello, Executive Director of LRCS. “We hope their

experience here carries on to their chosen careers.” This year’s volunteer’s also included 14 people who serve as outreach volunteers for the ‘Welcome Baby’ program, visiting over 25 families to welcome newborns into the community. Welcome Baby is one of many programs offered by the LRCS Family Resource Center (FRC) that relies on volunteers to help support their busy staff. “We have amazing volunteers that help us welcome families to events and programs and assist with childcare and parenting programs,” said Karen Welford, FRC Director. “Our resources are always stretched by program demands and our staff so appreciate the contribution of our community volunteers and interns.” Community members who are interested in volunteering for LRCS can contact HR Director Bob Leda at bobl@lrcs.org or 524-8811.

Steen agreed. “We are happy to extend our wonderful partnership with the AMC and advance our common mission for this region.”
