Timeline presented to panel shows new jail up & running by fall ‘17 By RogeR aMsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — A timeline prepared for the Belknap County Jail Planning Committee eyes completion of a new county corrections facility in May of 2017, with the facility being occupied

and fully operational by September of that same year. The timeline was presented to the committee by Belknap County Administrator Debra Shackett and had been prepared at the suggestion of Rep. David Huot (D-Laconia), who

along with other Democrats on the Belknap County Convention have been showing up lately at meetings of the jail planning group. Shackett said the committee is currently in the fifth stage of the nine-phase facility develop-

ment process, the design phase, which will take up to a year and require the development of schematic designs, followed by the design of development documents and then construction documents. see JaiL page 3

Missing teen said to have contacted her mom after disappearance

CONWAY, N.H. (AP) — Law enforcement officials say a missing New Hampshire teenager who vanished two months ago on her way home from high school was in contact with her mother after she disappeared. Abigail Hernandez, 15, of North Conway was last seen Oct. 9 after leaving Kennett High School. Police say she walked her normal route toward home and sent several text messages. The FBI said it developed information a couple of weeks ago that she had been in touch with her mother after she disappeared but not recently, WMUR-TV reported Thursday . “We don’t know that she is well or safe by any means. In fact, we have grave concerns for her safety,” said Special agent Kieran Ramsey. Officials plan to release new information at a press conference on Friday. The girl’s mother said last month that she believes her daughter will come home someday.

Nelson Mandela, South Africa’s ‘greatest son’, dies JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Nelson Mandela, who became one of the world’s most beloved statesmen and a colossus of the 20th century when he emerged from 27 years in prison to negotiate an end to white minority rule in South Africa, has died. He was 95. South African President Jacob Zuma made the announcement at a news conference late Thursday, saying “we’ve lost our greatest son.” His death closed the final chapter in South Africa’s struggle to cast off apartheid, leaving the world with indelible memories of a man of astonishing grace and good humor. Rock concerts celebrated

his birthday. Hollywood stars glorified him on screen. And his regal bearing, graying hair and raspy voice made him instantly recognizable across the globe. As South Africa’s first black president, the ex-boxer, lawyer and prisoner No. 46664 paved the way to racial reconciliation with well-chosen gestures of forgiveness. He lunched with the prosecutor who sent him to jail, sang the apartheid-era Afrikaans anthem at his inauguration, and traveled hundreds of miles to have tea with the widow of Hendrik Verwoerd, the prime minister at the time he was imprisoned. His most memorable gesture came when

he strode onto the field before the 1995 Rugby World Cup final in Johannesburg. When he came on the field in South African colors to congratulate the victorious South African team, he brought the overwhelmingly white crowd of 63,000 to its feet, chanting “Nelson! Nelson! Nelson!” For he had marched headlong into a bastion of white Afrikanerdom — the temple of South African rugby — and made its followers feel they belonged in the new South Africa. At the same time, Mandela was himself uneasy with the idea of being an icon and he did not escape criticism as an individual see MANDELA page 9

NEW YORK (AP) — While the city’s Metro-North Railroad is already getting hit with multimillion-dollar civil claims over a deadly commuter train derailment, prosecutors will face tough choices when deciding whether to bring criminal charges against the train’s engineer, who told investigators he nodded or fell into a daze at the controls. Legal experts say drowsy driving isn’t necessarily a crime, and it can be tough to prosecute drivers who nod off unless there are extra factors at play, such as drug use or brazen disregard for passenger safety. The prosecutor’s office investigating the engineer recently failed to convict a bus

driver of manslaughter in a 2011 crash that killed more than a dozen passengers, in part because his drowsiness wasn’t accompanied by any such factors. “There’s a sentiment that when something terrible happens, you have to hold someone accountable criminally — that’s not always the case,” said attorney Andrew Abramson, who represented a Staten Island Ferry pilot sentenced to 18 months in prison following a deadly wreck in 2003. “Sometimes there is a tragedy, and it’s really a matter for the civil courts.” Federal and city investigators are gathering information about Sunday’s train accident, which killed four people and

injured more than 60, and likely will spend months analyzing the conduct of engineer William Rockefeller. National Transportation Safety Board officials have said the train derailed in the Bronx after hitting a curve at 82 mph — far faster than the 30 mph speed limit. The accident happened at 7:20 a.m. Rockefeller’s lawyer said the engineer had gotten up at 3:30 a.m. for his 5 a.m. shift after going to bed at 8:30 the previous night. Rockefeller passed a blood-alcohol level breath test, officials said. His lawyer and union chief said he hadn’t been using drugs see TRAIN 7

JAIL from page one That work cannot proceed without approval of more funds by the Belknap County Convention and the committee is looking to present a proposal for a $3.5 million bond issue to the convention early next year which would provide $500,000 for a schematic design for a new facility, as well $1 million for replacing the HVAC system at the current jail and $1.8 million for the three-year rental of 48-bed temporary housing facility. The convention has not appropriated any funds for the jail planning process since the summer of 2011, when it approved a $160,000 supplemental appropriation sought by the commissioners, by a single vote. The funds were used to hire Ricci Greene Associates, a New York consulting firm which earlier this year presented a conceptual plan for a two-story, 94,450-square-foot facility it estimated to cost $42.5 million. It would have 180 beds, plus five for inmates requiring medical care. A third of the beds — 44 for men and 16 for women — would be reserved for inmates awaiting trial, on work release, undergoing treatment or on electronic monitoring, the so-called community corrections part of the facility. The remaining 120 beds — 88 for men and 32 for women — would be allotted to maximum, medium, and minimum security inmates as well as those with special needs. The plan was endorsed by the commissioners but was not well received by the convention and the Laconia City Council, which called on the commissioners to rethink the plan in terms of what was affordable for county taxpayers. County Commissioner Ed Philpot (D-Laconia), chairman of the Jail Planning Committee, says that he expects that the costs of the proposed facility can

be substantially reduced but defends the process the committee has taken to this point. ‘’We took the experts’ recommendations to heart,’’ Philpot told new members of the jail planning group’s advisory committee at Tuesday night’s meeting. He said that the community corrections part of the proposal represents the best way to have programs in place which reduce recidivism and that having an adequate facility is the key to the entire process. ‘’The building is really a program location, not just a facility for housing inmates,’’ said Philpot. Belknap County Corrections Superintendent Dan Ward said that even with all of the crowding problems at the current jail there are programs which have been offered in the past which had great success and which could be expanded in a new facility. ‘’I’m confident that we can make these programs work if we have space,’’ Ward told members of the committee, pointing out that a GED program offered over the last four years had seen 83 inmates earn a high school degree with only a 17 percent recidivism rate, compared to 50-60 percent for other inmates, and a zero percent recidivism rate for the 30 inmates who took part in a parenting program. ‘’We will be able to gain support by demonstrating the success of these programs,’’ said Ward. Ward said that there are currently 140 inmates in the county facility, which is designed for 120, and that the 17 women inmates are housed in the gymnasium, which keeps that part of the facility from being used for recreation during the months when outside recreation is limited. ‘’We’ve been sending upwards of 30 people away (to facilities in other counties) during recent months. If we install a temporary facility we get all of the prisoners back and get the use of the gymnasium back as well as

have some program space,’’ Ward says. He said that the land where the temporary facility would be located is level and located just to the right (west) of the current jail and that all power, water and sewer lines can be connected directly on site and no changes would be needed to the road which serves the jail. Ward said that the 50 foot by 100 foot temporary unit provides both fixed cells as well as dorm space and is divided by a middle wall which would allow male and female prisoners to be housed on different sides of the same structure. “We have 50 employees and 130 inmates and can’t continue to operate the facility this way” said Ward. He said that the county could be put in a position where it would need as many as four more temporary structures during construction of a facility if it involves extensive renovation or repairs of the current structure. The county will also need to make major changes in the way it handles its inmate population in order to comply with new federal standards which will take effect at the start of 2014. Ward said that those standards, developed as a result of the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA), which was passed in 2003 with unanimous support from both parties in Congress, cover all prisons, as well as local jails, police lockup and juvenile facilities. He said that were the standards were in place today there is no way that the county facility could meet all of them, particularly a requirement that juvenile inmates be separated by sight and sound from the general inmate population and that they be offered the same level of programs as other inmates.

All things that can go wrong You may remember hearing about the Montana judge who sentenced a former high school teacher who admitted to raping a 14-year-old student to 30 days in prison. As if that wasn’t bad enough, he blamed the victim, who committed suicide before the case could go to trial. In the latest chapter of this unusually ugly story, Judge G. Todd Baugh has now admitted to the Montana Judicial Standards Commission that he should not have said that the teenager appeared older than 14 and was “probably as much in control of the situation” as the rapist. In response to a complaint against him filed by the state chapter of the National Organization for Women (which released his response), the judge apologized for those comments, writing that he was “sorry I made those remarks. They focused on the victim when that aspect of the case should have been focused on the defendant.” Actually, the whole case should have focused on the defendant. Blaming the victim, much less a dead 14-year-old victim, is inexcusable at any stage. The teacher, 54-year-old Stacey Dean Rambold, pleaded guilty. How do you get from there to 30 days? “I believe this sentence to be fair, imposed impartially, and without bias or prejudice,” Baugh wrote in response to the complaint. “I did not impose this sentence without weighing the relevant factors, and did not impose this sentence based on some misguided attempt to blame the victim.” The bias or prejudice part was a response to the NOW complaint that the judge had acted as he did because the victim was female and Hispanic. The judge’s answer presumably means that he would treat the rape of a young white teenage boy equally cavalierly — although his record on cases involving young male victims is actually much tougher. I’ve long defended giving judges discretion in sentencing so that the punishment can fit both the crime and the criminal. Discretion in the criminal justice system, it has been noted by many over the years, is like toothpaste in a tube: Squeeze at one point, and it just shows up somewhere else.

When legislatures pass mandatory sentences or embrace three strikes or two strikes or other politically appealing slogans that should not be enacted into law, they just transfer the discretion from the judge at the sentencing stage to police and prosecutors who decide what to charge and what plea to accept. I prefer that judges make those decisions, not only because they tend to be more experienced than prosecutors, but also because their decisions are more transparent. Sentences are imposed in open court, subject to scrutiny. At least there is that. What happened in this case illustrates all of the things that can go wrong. The rape took place in 2007. The teacher was charged in 2008 with three counts of rape. In 2010, the victim committed suicide, and the prosecution, apparently concerned that the case would be hard to prove without her testimony (even though she was 14 at the time and the age of consent in Montana is 16), allowed the teacher rapist to enter a sex treatment program and agreed to dismiss the case if he completed treatment. Am I the only one who thinks that is exactly what’s wrong with prosecutorial discretion? He didn’t complete the treatment, and so they reinstated the charge, and he pleaded guilty last April to a single count of rape. The prosecution asked for 20 years with half suspended. The judge decided that was too much (this is what is wrong with judicial discretion) and sentenced him instead to 15 years in prison, and then suspended all but 31 days of the sentence and gave him credit for the one day — one day — he had already served. But here’s the kicker. The sentencing took place back in August. The outcry began in September. But it took the attorney general of Montana until last week to ask the Supreme Court of Montana to overturn the sentence because it is woefully too short. I wish I could believe it is just a coincidence that the criminal justice system shows itself at its worst in a rape case with a 14-year-old female victim. I don’t.

LETTERS Why is it so hard to get people to understand wind farm issue? To The Daily Sun, It never ceases to amaze me how journalists fall for the wind industry’s clean energy spin — without even a hint of a query. Are journalists blatantly misleading readers? How can journalists ignore the abuse the wind industry has on rural communities around New Hampshire, New England, nationally or internationally? Thanks to journalists the abuse will continue, effectively without critical scrutiny. The wind industry knows exactly what they’re doing to our community, because they’ve done it a thousand times over the past 20 years. Has a journalist ever stopped to think about the imbalance in financial resources? Or how it will effect our wildlife? Or how it will effect our watersheds? Or our peoples health? Or how it will effect tourism? Or how it will effect our property values? Do we, as residents, have a voice in any of this? It is private land after-all. Do we have a right to tell our story “in the press” to be read by the people of New Hampshire? Or are journalists simply looking at it from another point of view — that being: resident concerns would be same if a nuclear plant, biomass plant or hydro plant were to replace the words “wind developer”? Are our concerns destined to go on deaf ears — is this done by design? is a tiny organization that survives on donations. They are an tiny organization that has the backing of the majority here in Grafton County. They are under constant attack from wind developers who seek to destroy our community. Developers have the power, the money, the lawyers and the federal government to boot. is made up of volunteers. Journalists are the paid professionals and the publicly-traded wind developers are the story. We, the residents, have voted against further wind development in our area. Yet all we hear in the media is how residents are more concerned about the aesthetics of wind farms. Am I missing something — or is this being done by design? There are many more impor-

aren’t legal battles, issues or problems in states like Massachusetts, Vermont or Maine being discussed, introduced or explained to our residents here? Many people ask me why I’m so vocal on this matter? It’s because I have a vested interest in this community. There’s no wind farm development proposed near me. I will only see one from 15 miles away. Why I continue to do this, is for the genuine concern about the harm that will come to the people living near them. It’s hardly rocket science.... I just care. I sometimes wonder why it is so hard to get people to understand that night time noise in a quiet country environment is going to disturb the sleep of some people, and that if they cannot turn off the source of the noise, that they are going to become sleep deprived over time which will then harm their health. I have genuine concern for the wildlife and our watersheds as well. I also have concern for our tourism revenues, many businesses I know depend on them. And I know Mount Cardigan will take a hit on tourism, it’s 5,000 visitors are being talked about now. Every great story comes from an old saying: “follow the money”. Think about who is financially benefiting from them and who are the losers. Who’s threatened by the truth coming out? And those political parties they donate to? Shouldn’t we be talking about the people who have been driven from their homes in Massachusetts because of the known health damaging effects of low frequency noise pollution and then silenced? Shouldn’t we be talking about bat testing units being placed in thickly wooded areas on the ground? Shouldn’t we be talking about noise measuring monitors being placed underneath very big trees, on the opposite side, to falsely show low noise levels during summer months? Shouldn’t we be talking about how the new 500 foot turbines will be even more damaging? Start caring. Ask questions and demand answers — and pound the table until you get them. It’s your community too. Ray Cunningham

LETTERS Interesting that some run for government job who hate government To The Daily Sun, To paraphrase President Reagan; “There you go again”. I am speaking of the latest news from the N.H. Dept. of Transportation’s Commissioner Chris Clement, where he said, “Four years ago, I said we were at a tipping point. Two years ago, we were in a crisis, and now, we are facing a catastrophe.” This was caused when the Republican-controlled Legislature repealed an annual $30 surcharge on the registration of all cars and trucks which took away $90 million dollars of that biennium and since then an additional $45 million this past year. Not only does this Republican House and Senate like to never increase taxes regardless of the health of the state but they also like to take away existing revenues earmarked for the DOT. Senate President Chris Morse said “I continue to oppose any increase in the tax or tolls, this economy in New Hampshire is fragile at best.” My thought was, “Exactly”! When are those in office going to connect the dots and see that the price of asphalt and gas to name just a few have greatly increased over 19 years and taking away the revenue source for the DOT more than exacerbates the problem? A few months ago I attended a

meeting hosted by the late Executive Councilor Ray Burton and fellow presenters from the DOT and the Lakes Region Planning Commission where they explained the changes they had to make to the DOT’s 10 year plan because of this loss of revenue, which was $135 million. One member of the audience was my House Rep. Colette Worsman and she offered this advice to the DOT: “I’d like to propose a two year moratorium on the new 10 year plan until I can get a committee together and come up with a different priority list for the DOT”. I could not sit back so I said, “I thought it was an outrage that she and my Senator, Jeanie Forrester, who was also in attendance ,voted to do away with the surcharge, and now she knows better than the DOT as to where and how their budget should be fixed.” I find it very interesting that some of those who run for office (a government job) and get elected hate government. They do not come up with solutions to the many financial problems and obligations the state is responsible for, only ways that make matters worse. Folks, please start paying attention to what is going on at the state level it impacts you immensely. Paula Trombi Meredith

GILMANTON — No property taxpayers in the eleven municipalities in Belknap County fared better in 2013 than those of Gilmanton where the tax burden fell by 9.4-percent and the tax rate by 9.7-percent. The amount to be raised by taxes decreased in only one other town — Alton — and then by just 0.6-percent, while the property tax rate decreased in three other towns — Alton, Gilford and Barnstead — by 1.8-percent , 0.8-percent and 0.3-percent respectively. Everywhere else both the tax commitment and tax rate increased. Meanwhile, in Gilmanton the amount to be raised by taxes was lowered by $1,047,240, from $11,142,077 to $10,094,837, and the tax rate by $2.27, from $23.42 to $21.15. These figures represent a ten-percent reduction in property tax bills. Both the town and the school district contributed to lightening the tax burden. Town Administrator Arthur Capello said that the Board of Selectmen, with assistance from department heads, trimmed the operating budget from $3.9-million in 2012 to $3.6-million in 2013, a reduction of almost nine-percent. He said that the

capital outlays were reduced, along with expenditures for maintenance and elections. At the same time, revenues from sources other than property taxes, especially motor vehicle registrations, exceeded projections while payment plans were introduced to enable taxpayers to pay a portion of their bills and keep properties on the tax rolls. School Superintendent John Fauci said that a mix of circumstances enabled the school district to return more than $900,000 to the town. He estimated that adjustments in tuition paid to the Gilford School District for high school students and special education costs represented about three-quarters of the difference between budgeted appropriations and actual expenditures while reduced energy and staffing costs accounted for the balance. Capello noted that the total assessed valuation of the town rose $2.1-million, from $478.4-million to $480.5-million, or by 0.4-percent, which marginally contributed to the decrease in the property tax rate. However, he noted that the assessed valuation is approximately six-percent above market prices, which will require property values to be adjusted downward in 2014.

No charges will be filed against likely Heisman winner TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida State quarterback and Heisman hopeful Jameis Winston will not face any charges in a sexual assault case, mostly because there were too many gaps in his accuser’s story, a prosecutor said Thursday. State Attorney Willie Meggs said the woman’s memory lapses about the events last December were prob-

MISSING from page one Zenya Hernandez urged her daughter to be strong. Police have said they don’t know whether Abigail was involved in an accident, ran away or was abducted. There is a $20,000 reward for any information that leads to the safe return of Abigail or to information that leads to the arrest and conviction of anyone involved in her disappearance. The FBI has said that tips continue to come in to its tips line, 1-800-CALL-FBI.

lematic and there was not enough evidence to win a conviction. “It’s not inconsistencies, it’s lack of memory most of the time,” Meggs said. The woman told police she had been drinking at a bar with friends and went home with a man she didn’t know. She said she the alleged assault took place at an off-campus apartment, but she couldn’t remember where it was. A month later, she identified her alleged attacker as the quarterback. Winston’s attorney said the sex was consensual. The quarterback said in a statement he was relieved. “It’s been difficult to stay silent through this process, but I never lost faith in the truth and in who I am,” Winston said. The alleged assault happened long before Winston became a star on the national stage. Reports about an investigation didn’t surface in the public until last month,.

MANIA from page one to more leisurely competitors who sit on bar stools while being entertained and entertaining each other. The event features 30 teams of 24 members apiece. Each team is assigned one of the stools ringing the bar at Patricks Pub, where each of its members sits for one hour, gathering pledges from those who support their team. Each team must raise at least $1,000. Meanwhile, Pub Maniacs are treated to live music, poetry readings, comedy hours, talent contests, karaoke, barstool yoga and arts and crafts. A crew of referees may award teams points for their participation and performance in contests or dock them points for leaving a stool empty or overstaying their leave as well as conduct “contrary to the spirit of Pub

Mania.” Since Pub Mania joined the repertoire of the Children’s Auction, it has grown almost fourfold to become its largest single contributor. The event raised $47,000 in 2009, $60,000 in 2010, $110,700 in 2011 and $165,300 last year, all thanks to the sedentary efforts of some 720 participants and their supporters each year. Beetle said that the goal this year, as every year, is to top the amount the amount raised the year before. Beetle said that although most teams have sold out their seats, more than two dozen remain seats on five different teams and urged anyone wishing to reserve a place to visit the website, and click on “available seats 2013.”

LHS adopts list of 32 ‘must read’ novels LACONIA — The High School Humanities Department has created a list of 32 must read books, which is known as the “Laconia Canon”. The list was compiled to outline a high standard of reading comprehension, and is focused on meeting so-called Common Core standards. “The Laconia Canon has been implemented to ensure that students do not leave the high school without a basic knowledge of the most crucial works written over the past century,” said Tate Aldrich, English Teacher. “It does the students a great disservice in both college and life, if they do not have a background of these works.” The Canon is a collection of highlevel literary works. The study of each book is designed to encourage students to think critically about abstract ideas and connect concepts to outside sources. Some of the works highlighted include “The Odyssey”, “Macbeth”, “The Call of the Wild”, “Animal Farm”, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, “The Pear”, “Fahrenheit 451”, “A Raisin in the Sun”, “A Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time”, “The Scarlet Letter”, “The Adventures of Huckleberry Fin”, “The Great Gatsby”, “Death of a Salesman”, “1984”, “Frankenstein”, “Lord of the Flies”, “To Kill a Mocking Bird”, “Hamlet” and “Of Mice and Men”. These and other books are required to be read in Social Studies, Citizenship, and U.S History. Through the broad collection of novels, students are pushed to make connections with complex concepts such as morality, dichotomies, census, omnipotence and microcosms, as the

reader is pushed to a new level of comprehension and knowledge. Digging deeper into the content of each novel, students are exposed to new forms of analyzing literary content, through thesis papers, literary circles, and frequent classroom discussion. By approaching the works listed on the Canon in different ways, the students are able to extract a better understanding of important concepts, and have a more evolved way of looking at the world as a whole, said Aldrich. The Common Core standards have been voluntarily implemented in most states, as they are aimed to ensure students leave high school proficient in reading and writing, explained Aldrich. Working as a continuous curriculum, students will be required to read various styles of works during their high school career, and become proficient in various styles of writing. In the English Department all students are required to write narrative essays throughout the year. The grading of each essay according to Common Core standards is used as a way to gauge where the students are in meeting the required benchmarks. The goal of this system is to ensure that through continuous practice of writing a specific type of style, the students will become proficient in the basic standards. “In addition to promoting high academia, the collection of literary works is focused on meeting the new Common Core standards,” said Rick Crockford, head of the Humanities Department. “The works ensure that during the course of their high school career, students will have both a high standard of reading comprehension and critical thinking before they graduate.”

TRAIN from page 2 or doing anything else reckless, such as using a phone while at the controls. The NTSB is trying to build a timeline of what Rockefeller was doing in the 72 hours leading up to the accident, in part to determine whether he might have been sleep-deprived or suffering from an undisclosed health condition. Bronx District Attorney Robert Johnson, who would handle any prosecution, has declined to comment publicly on the case and hasn’t given a timeline on a decision about criminal charges. In past cases, prosecutors have commonly waited until the conclusion of the federal investigation to convene a grand jury. Late last year, a Bronx jury acquit-

ted bus driver Ophadell Williams of manslaughter and negligent homicide after the bus he had taken on an allnight casino trip to Connecticut overturned on a highway while returning to the city, killing 15 people. In that case, prosecutors argued that Williams had knowingly endangered passengers by going night after night without enough sleep. Jurors didn’t buy it. Williams’ lawyer, Patrick Bruno, said the legal standard for the lowest possible criminal charge against Rockefeller, negligent homicide, might be tough to meet if the engineer really did get a full night’s sleep and did everything else he was supposed to do to keep passengers safe.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, November 6, 2013— Page 9

STAFFING from page one risk of injury to firefighters by increasing the personnel on each shift from eight to nine. Erickson said that the decision to “run short” was “my prerogative,” and stressed that the department would operate at full strength, with nine firefighters per shift, at night and on weekends as well as around the clock during the busiest months of the year. He said that since introducing the practice, only four shifts have run short. However, he noted that contrary to expectations, November was a very busy month with 354 calls for service, including a rash of suspicious fires, compared to 262 calls in the same month a year ago, which led to so called “recalls” of personnel. “I don’t like running down,” Erickson said. “If I tell you I need nine; I need nine all the time.” With a full shift, he explained, three trucks can easily be on the street at the same time. The chief said that since the additional firefighters enabled him to increase each shift from eight to nine, response times have improved 20 percent, recalls have decreased significantly and the number of injuries have been reduced. “We’re doing better work,” he said. Nevertheless, Captain Chris Shipp, who in July became president of the Laconia Professional Firefighters, expressed concern about running short while insisting that “as far as staffing goes, the chief and I are on the same page.” “It’s a big deal for us,” Shipp said. “When somebody is out they need to be replaced. It’s a safety issue — the safety of the public and the safety of the firefighters.” In particular, Shipp said that when a shift is trimmed from nine to eight, its ability to handle multiple calls for service is diminished. With five firefighters at Central Station and three at the Weirs Beach Station, he said that a severe medical

call requiring four firefighters would leave only one to respond to the next call. Shipp emphasized that the purpose of the SAFER grant is to ensure adequate staffing, not to reduce overtime. “In my opinion, using the grant to cut overtime would be a misuse of the funds.” City Manager Scott Myers agreed that the purpose of the grant was not to reduce overtime, but said that Erickson’s decision to run short reflected his best judgement of how to manage the resources and budget of his department. He recalled that a year ago, when there were eight firefighters on each shift, running short led to “brown outs” — with equipment idle for want of personnel to operate it. Last year, Municipal Resources, Inc. of Meredith undertook a comprehensive review of the department’s operations, facilities and apparatus — with special emphasis on its scheduling practices, overtime staffing and shift coverage — and recommended the city hire eight additional firefighters during the next three years. The call volume and workload, MRI found, “is steadily increasing,” indicating that “the level of staffing is not adequate.” Overtime pay is incurred whenever someone misses a shift and special events and significant emergencies require addition personnel be brought in while they are officially off duty. MRI calculated the annual cost of overtime was approximately $460,000, of which $200,000 is defrayed with revenue provided by LRGHealthcare. In 2012, overtime was required to cover 561 of 730 shifts, or 77 percent of the time. MRI recommended hiring four firefighters in fiscal year 2014 to fill float positions on each platoon to reduce overtime and suggested three options for deploying the additional personnel, which would spare between 47 percent and 92 percent of the increased cost by trimming overtime.

MANDELA from page 2 and a politician, though much of it was muted by his status as a unassailable symbol of decency and principle. As president, he failed to craft a lasting formula for overcoming South Africa’s biggest post-apartheid problems, including one of the world’s widest gaps between rich and poor. In his writings, he pondered the heavy cost to his family of his decision to devote himself to the struggle against apartheid. He had been convicted of treason and sentenced to life imprisonment in 1964 for leading a campaign of sabotage against the government, and sent to the notorious Robben Island prison. It was forbidden to quote him or publish his photo, yet he and other jailed members of his banned African National Congress were able to smuggle out messages of guid-

ance to the anti-apartheid crusade. As time passed — the “long, lonely, wasted years,” as he termed them — international awareness of apartheid grew more acute. By the time Mandela turned 70 he was the world’s most famous political prisoner. Such were his mental reserves, though, that he turned down conditional offers of freedom from his apartheid jailers and even found a way to benefit from confinement. “People tend to measure themselves by external accomplishments, but jail allows a person to focus on internal ones; such as honesty, sincerity, simplicity, humility, generosity and an absence of variety,” Mandela says in one of the many quotations displayed at the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg. see next page

from preceding page “You learn to look into yourself.” Thousands died, were tortured and were imprisoned in the decades-long struggle against apartheid, so that when Mandela emerged from prison in 1990, smiling and waving to the crowds, the image became an international icon of freedom to rival the fall

of the Berlin Wall. South Africa’s white rulers had portrayed Mandela as the spearhead of a communist revolution and insisted that black majority rule would usher in the chaos and bloodshed that had beset many other African countries as they shook off colonial rule.

Laconia girls hope to build on last year’s post-season run By Tim marTin


LACONIA — The winter high school sports season begins tonight with girls’ basketball. Boys’ basketball will start a week from tonight, and ice hockey teams will face off the following week. Girls’ basketball The Laconia Sachems look to improve on an impressive run that ended in the in with a tournament loss to Bow last winter in the quarter-finals. Laconia, with a team of mostly freshmen and sophomores in the 2012-2013 season, had modest expectations last year but was able to earn the seventh seed in the NHIAA Division III tournament. The Sachems finished the season with a 14-6 record. A new season will begin on Friday night when the team, still on the young side but now playing with some big-game experience, travels to Bristol to take on Newfound Regional. Friday night will see Belmont travel to Farmington and Gilford visiting Somersworth. Winnisquam will host White Mountains and Inter-Lakes welcomes Mascoma Valley. Boys’ basketball Laconia’s boys team did not fare as well as their counterparts, finishing the year with a 5-13 record. The Sachems were able to finish the season on a positive note, winning the last two games of the season. The boys will begin their season on Friday, Dec. 13, when they travel to Whitefield to take on White Mountain Regional. In other local action on Dec. 13, Gilford will travel to Franklin and Belmont heads to Somersworth. Inter-Lakes is also on the road in Alton matching up against Prospect Mountain. Winnisquam will play host to Berlin. Laconia’s Natalie Compton goes up for a shot during Wednesday night’s scrimmage with Kennett at LHS. The team travels to Newfound tonight for the first game of the season. (Karen Bobotas/for the Laconia Daily Sun)

Plymouth Leadership Academy session focuses on Education PLYMOUTH — On November 6th the Plymouth Regional Chamber of Commerce held the third session of its Leadership Academy at Holderness School. The class gathered together in Livermore Hall to gear up for a day full of conversation around the topic of education in the State of New Hampshire and the local region. The discussion of the day focused on public education through the lenses of leaders of Early Childhood education up through public university and college. Class co-facilitator Ty Gagne started off the first session of the morning by leading a panel of local public education leaders from the Plymouth region discussing roles and responsibilities in their respective positions, along with insight into their thoughts on how education has changed over the years. The panel was comprised of Mark Halloren, Superintendent of Schools, Michael O’Malley - SAU 48, Principal – Newfound Regional High School, Julie Flynn, Principal – Plymouth Elementary School and Karen Ferguson, Health and Safety Coordinator – TriCounty Head Start. There was a discussion between the panelists and the Leadership Academy class around today’s educational standards set by the State of New Hampshire and the Federal Government. The panelists gave an inward look into the challenges each of them face on a daily basis in public education, ranging from students who may be homeless, meeting the needs of each student in the from preceding page Sandwich Woman’s Club with the assistance of several other organizations in town.

classroom, ensuring that kids have a chance to eat healthy, and are receiving the medical attention they need that they may not necessarily get at home. The second session of the day was led by Daniel Barrick, the Deputy Director of the NH Center for Public Policy. Barrick began his presentation by reviewing research data showing how education has been and is currently funded in the State. Discussions ensued regarding the path NH has chosen to fund public education. Todd Leach, Chancellor of the University System of NH and Sara Jayne Steen, President of Plymouth State University were the two special guests who took part in the first afternoon session of the day. Chancellor Leach began with an overview of the four schools within the USNH system, and explained how the system is funded overall. President Steen reviewed what Plymouth State has to offer and what it does to fit into the community it resides in. She also discussed All Well Center project taking place across the river in Holderness. The class actively discussed with the Chancellor and President how education has changed over the years in high education along with a great debate how the system is primarily funded on student tuition. During the discussion, the class was alarmed that NH is close to last in the country for state funding of public higher education and Pre-K through 12. The day concluded with a visit from Michelle Holt-Shannon, Associate Director of NH Listens. Michelle took the opportunity to lead class in a discussion about what we learned from the speakers along with what their thoughts were on what needs immediate addressing in public education in NH. This facilitation gave the group a chance to have very open conversation and allowed them to start brainstorming how we as a group could make a difference in public education.

Gilford church serving free Chrismas Day meal

GILFORD — For the last decade and a half the congregation of the First United Methodist Church has been putting on a free meal on Christmas day. It all started because one family at the church lost a part of their own Christmas tradition. For many years the Keysar family of Laconia had spent their Christmas afternoon serving dinner at Patrick’s Restaurant in Gilford. The Keysars were a small family and had found that the holiday ended early for them and wanted a way to give something back to the local community and in an effort to extend their own celebration began working the community meal at Patrick’s. After several years the restaurant was sold and the meal stopped. For a couple of years Mac and Maude Keysar and their daughter Jessica Alward didn’t know what to do with themselves and Christmas didn’t feel complete. Having done some catering and a whole lot of church suppers they decided that if their home church would support them they would take up the reins of the meal themselves. This year marks nearly 2 decades of that dinner. Mac and Maude have both passed away now but Alward and her family are keeping the tradition alive. Every year the doors of the church open at noon for fellowship, carols and appetizers. At 1 p.m. a

complete ham dinner is laid out in the church fellowship hall. It is a holiday feast done right with all the trimmings. Linen table cloths, festive centerpieces and fine foods to fill the belly including homemade pies. “We have been lucky to have such a great home church with a super facility that allows us to put on such a bigger dinner.” Alward says. Alward, now married and mom to two boys is quick to say that it takes a lot of help from the community to put on the meal. “Every year we get folks from all over the local area that come and help us make this meal possible. They work in shifts on Christmas Eve to set up and prep food, two shifts on Christmas day, one to serve the meal and one to clean up. I don’t know what I would do without these helpers.” She and her crew fed just over 200 last year and she anticipates an even bigger turnout this year. “People come back year after year. Some come so they won’t be lonely on the holiday and others come because they just don’t have enough food or money. Times are hard right now.” The Alward family welcomes anyone to come and eat or to work on the meal. Reservations are required so that they can plan enough food for everyone and you can make those reservations or volunteer to help by calling or emailing her by December 20 at 527-0152 or

T-Bones raises $3,000 for Turkey Plunge LACONIA — T-BONES Great American Eatery and Cactus Jack’s took part in the Turkey Plunge to benefit the Salvation Army of Laconia. For the second year in a row, to help increase funds for their team and the organization, the Laconia store enlisted the support of patrons. Guests were encouraged to visit T-BONES and Cactus Jack’s starting November 10 through November 17. Every five dollars donated to the Salvation Army of Laconia at Laconia T-BONES and Cactus Jack’s earned guests a spin on the Donation Prize Wheel as a thank

you for their support. The wheel was full of great prizes, intended to be a win, win for the guest and plunge team. Together, Laconia staff and patrons donated $3,000 to the Salvation Army of Laconia. The staff was also present at the Turkey Plunge on November, 23 at Opechee Cove Beach at noontime to take the plunge for the cause. Jason Bolduc, T-BONES and Cactus Jack’s general manager, said “We are extremely thankful to our patrons for their support for yet another year.

you are actually accomplishing something. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Recycling isn’t just for glass and cardboard. You’ll find something to reuse and repurpose, and the extra value you squeeze from this will help you reach a financial goal. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your needs will swing like a pendulum. First, you crave comfort, and then, excitement. You’ll flirt with melodrama and romance and then return to that stable, steady source. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’re likely to become quickly involved with new people, and you’ll place your trust easily, not making anyone work too hard for it. As long as you don’t make agreements that stretch beyond today, this will turn out fine. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 6). Your personal magnetism is amplified. You’ll use this charisma surge to create a reversal. You’re good at building things and relationships in 2014. February’s work focus oddly leads to more fun. April and August are best for travel. Competition will motivate you to make a serious commitment and stick with it. Cancer and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 12, 31, 28 and 44.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You don’t like to force things to fit, because even if they finally move into place, they are likely to pop back out at the slightest provocation. You’d rather keep searching for something that feels absolutely right. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Art has a way of challenging you in a way that strictly logical pursuits cannot. It’s as though the music fully grasps you whether or not you can fully grasp the music. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You use your instinct and intuition when there is little else to go on. But if you also remember to use it when you have plenty of other information, the result will be impressive. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You can speculate all the live long day about what might happen if you try out your various options, but you’ll never know for sure until you put yourself in the situation. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Contract negotiations, legal matters and joint ventures are among the favored opportunities of the day. At the front of your mind is your desire to help others with their goals, and this is what allows you to get your own needs met. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Laziness is an obstacle you’ve overcome plenty of times in your life, but usually it’s someone else’s laziness. You’ve always been among the hardest working of people, and that trend continues today. Your reward is imminent. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re likely to encounter a strong masculine energy, and the smoothness of your day will depend on how well you work with this kind of force. Figure out who does this well, and take your cue from this person. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your work habits may seem erratic to the casual passerby, but they don’t understand the politics involved. Sometimes you have to circle around your project in order to appease all of the right people. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If you are patient enough to commit to taking slow and deliberate action, you’ll avoid mistakes and increase your awareness to ensure that

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, November 6, 2013— Page 25

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, Dec. 6, the 340th day of 2013. There are 25 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Dec. 6, 1957, America’s first attempt at putting a satellite into orbit failed as Vanguard TV3 rose only about four feet off a Cape Canaveral launch pad before crashing back down and exploding. On this date: In 1790, Congress moved to Philadelphia from New York. In 1884, Army engineers completed construction of the Washington Monument by setting an aluminum capstone atop the obelisk. In 1889, Jefferson Davis, the first and only president of the Confederate States of America, died in New Orleans. In 1907, the worst mining disaster in U.S. history occurred as 362 men and boys died in a coal mine explosion in Monongah, West Virginia. In 1917, some 2,000 people died when an explosives-laden French cargo ship collided with a Norwegian vessel at the harbor in Halifax, Nova Scotia, setting off a blast that devastated the city. In 1922, the Irish Free State came into being under terms of the Anglo-Irish Treaty. In 1947, Everglades National Park in Florida was dedicated by President Harry S. Truman. In 1962, 37 coal miners were killed in an explosion at the Robena No. 3 Mine operated by U.S. Steel in Carmichaels, Pa. In 1969, a free concert by The Rolling Stones at the Altamont Speedway in Alameda County, Calif., was marred by the deaths of four people, including one who was stabbed by a Hell’s Angel. In 1973, House minority leader Gerald R. Ford was sworn in as vice president, succeeding Spiro T. Agnew. In 1989, 14 women were shot to death at the University of Montreal’s school of engineering by a man who then took his own life. Ten years ago: A U.S. warplane in pursuit of a “known terrorist” attacked a village in eastern Afghanistan, mistakenly killing nine children. Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld met with senior American commanders in Iraq, and was assured that a recent switch to more aggressive anti-insurgency tactics had begun to pay off. Army became the first team to finish 0-13 in major college history after a 34-6 loss to Navy. Ireland’s Rosanna Davison was crowned Miss World at the southern Chinese tropical resort of Sanya. Five years ago: President-elect Barack Obama said in a Saturday radio and Internet address that he’d asked his economic team for a recovery plan that would save or create more than 2 million jobs. Indicted Democratic U.S. Rep. William Jefferson was ousted from his New Orleans area district in a special election won by Republican attorney Anh “Joseph” Cao, who became the first Vietnamese-American in Congress. A Greek youth, 15-year-old Alexandros Grigoropoulos, was shot to death during a confrontation with police in Athens, sparking two weeks of riots. Heiress Martha “Sunny” von Bulow, who’d spent the last 28 years of her life in a coma, died in New York City at age 76.

Page 26 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, November 6, 2013


Dear Annie: My boyfriend and I have been together for two years, and he moved in six months ago. “John” is 25 years older than I am. He has always been supportive and helpful, but now he is displaying passive-aggressive behavior. John was forced into retirement last year, and I think he somehow blames me. I work full time, take care of two teenage boys, cook dinner every night, do dishes and laundry, clean the bathrooms, buy the groceries and pay the bills. John sweeps and vacuums and does the yard work, which is a godsend because I have had shoulder issues that make these things difficult for me. But lately, John has been pushing all of my buttons. He throws the towel over the shower door even though there is a nearby towel rack. I know it’s a small thing, but it’s a daily nuisance, and he knows it bugs me. He also does not squeegee the shower after he uses it, and I’m the one who cleans it. And he leaves the toilet seat up -- but only when the toilet is dirty, which is his way of telling me it’s time to clean it. He leaves dishes in the sink instead of loading the dishwasher, even though I’ve asked him to at least leave them on the counter. When they are piled in the sink, I have no room to prepare dinner. I know these are tiny things, but they add up, especially when I’m working all day while he is watching TV. When he’s upset with me, he gives me the silent treatment, and often it takes me days to figure out why. I know John is depressed because of his retirement, but he is well situated, doesn’t have to pay any bills and gets home-cooked meals every day. I love him dearly, but I am going nuts walking on eggshells. What am I doing wrong? -- Massachusetts Dear Massachusetts: Nothing. You did not live with John before his retirement and don’t really know whether he was

always like this. His age may also be a factor in that he might be less energetic and capable than he was a year ago. And depression could cause him to push you away in these subtle ways, feeling he doesn’t deserve you. Please talk to him. Tell him you love him, but that the current situation is making you worry your feelings aren’t reciprocated. Ask him to see his doctor about depression. Suggest he look into part-time jobs or activities that will keep him more active during the day. But if he makes no effort to address this, the situation is not likely to improve. Dear Annie: I recently missed my 10-year high school reunion. I found out it was held in August, and I was never invited because I am not on Facebook. When did social media get so big that people can’t pick up a phone or write a letter? -- Curious Dear Curious: Social media sites began springing up as early as the mid-90s. Facebook was founded in 2004, and there are now more than a billion users. Like it or not, people are more apt to use such a site for mass invitations rather than pick up a phone and make dozens of individual calls. Our readers have let us know that when you haven’t heard about an upcoming reunion, you should contact others and find out whether you are out of the loop. Dear Annie: I’d like to respond to “Too Good of a Cook,” whose grown children often visited for the weekend but never offered to help cook or contribute to the growing grocery bills. My mother had many siblings who visited from out of state. Her rule was, “You are guests for one day. After that you are living here.” So everyone helped out with the dishes, cooking, cutting grass, doing wash and whatever. -- J.F.

‘A Broadway Christmas Carol’

Tri-County CAP negotating with providers on transportation plans OSSIPEE — The changes in the state Medicaid providers have affected many people. Tri-County CAP passengers in Coos, Carroll, and Grafton counties have been informed that the agency is currently in negotiations with the provider for NH Healthy Families and Meridian Health Plan to continue to provide Tri-County CAP passengers with Medicaid with the ability to continue to ride with them. Tri-County CAP is also in the process of beginning negotiations with the provider of the Well Sense Health Plan. The new process for obtaining transportation services is to call your

plan provider to set up the provider for all your transportation needs. If Tri-County Cap (North Country Transit, Blue Loon Transit) has been your provider, you can request through your health plan provider for TriCounty Cap transportation services to continue to provide for your transportation needs. Passengers who have opted out for a year, or who have a regular spend down, and are still on the Regular Medicaid transportation, can continue to follow their normal process of scheduling a trip directly with Tri-County Cap Transit.

Not Your Mother’s Christmas Carol! Interlakes Theatre features Thom Caska, Corey Scheys and Mikey LoBalsamo of New York City will take part in “A Broadway Christmas Carol”, a lighthearted, fast paced musical theatre parody featuring 30 Broadway show tunes, which will be performed Saturday , December 7 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, December 8 at 3:30 p.m. at Inter-Lakes High School.

‘The Greatest Show on Snow’ talk Monday LACONIA — The Laconia Historical and Museum Society will host its monthly lecture program ‘’The Greatest Show on Snow’’, on Monday, December 9 at 7 p.m. at the Laconia Public Library. Raymond H. Simoneau, LuAnn Walsh, Jennifer Lyman, Libby Lyman Winn and Keith Bryar Jr. will share the history of the Laconia World Championship Sled Dog Derby. It will also host a reception at the library for an opening of an exhibition on the Sled Dog Derby’s history on Tuesday, December 10 at 6 p.m.

In 1927, Laconia became one of the first places in the nation to ever host a sleddog race. The Laconia Sled Dog Club was formed in 1936 and the World Championships were held here from 1935 through 1939 at which time many of the racers went into the service. After the war, the club was reorganized into the present Lakes Region Sled Dog Club. Both events are free and open to the public. For more information on these events, contact LHMS at (603) 527-1278, email at www.lhmslpl@ or on the web at www.
