County officials will take budget case directly to towns

LACONIA — Belknap County Commissioners, citing ‘’a lot of misinformation and misunderstanding’’ about the Belknap County budget, are preparing to go directly to local boards of selectmen and budget committees to explain the $27 million spending plan they are working to finalize over the next few weeks. ‘’We should be going out into the towns see COUNTY page 4

Downtown parking debate raises temps at City Hall BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — “I don’t even want to call it an issue, said Mayor Mike Seymour by way of introducing another discussion of downtown parking when the City Council met Monday evening,”because I think the only issue we have is a lot of empty spaces and we’d like to fill more of them.” As it turned out, the mayor misjudged the temper not only of the council but also

of John Moriarty, president of the Main Street Initiative, an organization of downtown building and business owners. What Seymour preferred to call “a concern” sparked exchanges first between Councilor Brenda Baer (Ward 4) and Chris Santaniello, executive director of Lakes Region Community Services, and then between Councilors Henry Lipman (Ward 3 ) and Bob Hamel (Ward 5) and Moriarty. Afterwards the council directed a Parking

Committee, formed in 2012, to reconvene and prepare a report and recommendations to the council. At Moriarty’s suggestion the committee, which consists of City Manager Scott Myers, Planning Director Shanna Saunders, Baer, Santaniello, Andy Patterson of the Laconia Clinic, Robert Sawyer of Sawyer’s Jewelry and Moriarty, be expanded. Moriarty said he would like for residential, retail, entertainment, see PARKING page 8

LACONIA — Eric Grant’s attorney, Emily McLaughlin, continued yesterday to try to discredit the 17-year-old girl who said she was sexually assaulted at the band leader’s home during a New Year’s Eve party that happened when she was 10. After another two hours of cross-examination of the alleged victim, the girl’s mother was called to the stand by Asst. Belknap County Prosecutor Carley Ahern, who tried to elicit testimony from regarding any change in the girl’s demeanor after the 2006 New Years Eve party and if the girl’s relationship with her uncle (Grant) changed. The state’s case against Grant, who is a wellknown local country music performer with some national recognition, is that he digitally assaulted see TRIAL page 8

4 Marines killed in accident at Calif. base

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Four Marines were killed Wednesday during an operation to clear a range of unexploded ordnance at Camp Pendleton in Southern California, a Marine official said. The accident happened at 11 a.m. during a range maintenance operation at the San Diego County coastal base. The Marines were clearing the range of unexploded ordnance, and it was not a live firing range, said a Marine official with knowledge of the incident who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly. The identities of the dead were withheld pending notification of relatives. No further details were released. “We offer our heartfelt prayers and condolences to the families of the Marines lost today in this tragic accident,” said Brig. Gen. John W. Bullard, commanding general of Marine Corps Installations West at see MARINES page 9

First month Obamacare enrollment much less than projected WASHINGTON (AP) — Planting a paltry number on a national disappointment, the Obama administration revealed Wednesday that just 26,794 people enrolled for health insurance during the first, flawed month of operations for the federal “Obamacare” website. Adding in enrollment of more than 79,000 in the 14 states with their own websites, the nationwide number of 106,000 October sign-ups was barely one-fifth of what officials had projected — and a small fraction of the millions who have received widely publicized private coverage cancel-

lations as a result of the federal law. The White House raced to reassure anxious Democrats who are worried about the controversial program, which they voted into existence three years ago and which seems sure to be a major issue in next year’s election campaigns. The administration, trying to regain the initiative, for the first time indicated a willingness to consider legislation to stave off the wave of cancellations that’s compounding the website technology problems. Some Democrats are seeking changes in Obama’s signature program, and key

Republicans, many pressing for repeal, said that even Wednesday’s feeble signup figures appeared to be pumped up. The final number — 106,185 people — would be even smaller if it counted only those who finalized their enrollment by actually paying their first month’s premium, Republicans said. Administration officials and senior congressional Democrats expressed confidence in the program’s future. “We expect enrollment will grow substantially throughout the next five months,” said Health and see OBAMACARE page 5

(AP) — For decades, if you asked your doctor what your odds were of suffering a heart attack, the answer would turn on a number: your cholesterol level. Now the nation’s first new heart disease prevention guidelines in a decade take a very different approach, focusing more broadly on risk and moving away from specific targets for cholesterol. The guidance offers doctors a new for-

mula for estimating risk that includes age, gender, race and factors such as whether someone smokes. And for the first time, the guidelines take aim at preventing strokes, not just heart attacks. Partly because of that, they set a lower threshold for using medicines to reduce risk. They recommend using statin drugs such as Lipitor and Zocor, and identify four groups of people they help the most.

The end result: Twice as many Americans — one-third of all adults — would be told to consider taking statins, which lower cholesterol but also reduce heart risks in other ways. “The emphasis is to try to treat more appropriately,” said Dr. Neil Stone, the Northwestern University doctor who headed the cholesterol guideline panel. see CHOLESTEROL page 8

BOSTON (AP) — The families of people killed by South Boston crime boss James “Whitey” Bulger and his gang finally got the chance Wednesday to tell Bulger how his long reign of terror damaged their lives, calling him a “terrorist,” a “punk” and

even “Satan.” A stone-faced Bulger refused to look at them, again declared his trial a sham and didn’t take his opportunity to address the judge. Bulger, his back to the families, stared straight ahead and scribbled on a legal

pad as a dozen relatives stood one by one in a packed courtroom and poignantly described the loss of their loved ones and their contempt for Bulger. The son of a man who was gunned down see BULGER page 9

Woman loses track of small Expelled Rockingham Co. attorney fighting for his job CONCORD (AP) — Veteran Rockingham County from office. alligator to O’Hara Airport Attorney Jim Reams, who was stripped of his proseReams has been county attorney since 1998. Ramscutorial authority last week amid a state and federal investigation, will argue the action was unjustified and unconstitutional. Reams will be in Merrimack Superior Court on Thursday to argue it was unprecedented for Attorney General Joseph Foster to remove his authority and lock him out of his office last week. Reams’ attorney, Michael Ramsdell, said the only other time a county attorney was removed from office was in 1975 and only after criminal charges were filed. Ramsdell told The Associated Press that Reams has not been informed of any allegations against him by state and federal officials. He said Reams was out-of-state and was “flabbergasted” when told by investigators that he was locked out of his office. “Jim Reams was elected by the citizens of Rockingham County,” Ramsdell said. “He is a constitutional officer and not just someone who works for an agency.” He said there were thresholds that had to be met before a county attorney could be removed

CHICAGO (AP) — After tracking down a small alligator skulking in a baggage claim area at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, authorities are now hunting for its traveling companion. The Chicago Transit Authority has released a series of images showing a woman who they believe rode to the airport on a CTA Blue Line train with the 2-footlong gator in the early morning hours of Nov. 1. Thanks to one of the most extensive surveillance systems in the United States, officials know this about the alligator’s trip to O’Hare: It boarded a train at the Pulaski stop — with the woman — at 1:17 a.m. The security camera captured the woman petting her little friend on her knee as she talked on her cellphone. Blue Line rider Mark Strotman also snapped a picture of the woman and the alligator with his phone. “She was sitting with it, petting it, letting people take pictures of it and telling everyone how she raised it from an early age,” said Strotman, 23, who initially thought the alligator might have been part of some “crazy Halloween getup” because it on the train just an hour after Halloween turned into Nov. 1. An hour later, the woman, presumably with the alligator, disembarked the train at the airport. At 2:44 a.m., she is again recorded by the security cameras near the O’Hare stop, but with no reptilian companion. Strotman said given how fond the the woman seemed of the alligator, he suspects that it might have gotten away from her at the airport. Besides, he told The Associated Press, “You can drop off an alligator anywhere. You don’t have to take it to O’Hare.” An airport employee found the alligator later in the day under an escalator near a baggage claim — insert alligator-skin bag joke here. Police captured the reptile by trapping it beneath a trash can.

dell said he is being paid during his suspension. Thursday’s hearing may prompt prosecutors to offer some information on the investigation to rebut Reams’ challenge. Senior Assistant Attorney General Jane Young would not comment on that prospect Wednesday. “We have to see how the hearing unfolds,” she said. County commissioners placed Reams’ deputy county attorney, Tom Reid, on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation after being briefed by the attorney general’s office. State and federal officials have not said why they’re investigating Reams, except to say they received complaints about the office. Senior Assistant Attorney General James Boffetti was appointed acting county attorney during the investigation. U.S. Attorney John Kacavas said last week the investigation could take weeks. Kacavas would not indicate whether the FBI or other agencies have obtained or used search warrants.

Andy Warhol painting fetches record $105M at auction NEW YORK (AP) — A prized 1963 Andy Warhol painting that captures the immediate aftermath of a car crash sold for $105 million Wednesday at a New York City auction, shattering the record for the famed pop artist amid a spending frenzy at the high end of the art world. The 8- by 13-foot painting titled “Silver Car Crash (Double Disaster)” depicts a twisted body sprawled across a car’s mangled interior. It has only been seen once in public in the past 26 years. The buyer wasn’t immediately identified. The previous Warhol auction record was set in 2007 when “Green Car Crash (Green Burning Car I)” sold for $71.7 million. Another iconic Warhol, “Coca-Cola (3),” sold for

$57.2 million Tuesday at Christie’s auction house, and his portrait of Elizabeth Taylor titled “Liz #1 (Early Colored Liz)” sold for $20 million Wednesday. A Willem de Kooning abstract painting in red, yellow and white called “Untitled V,” not seen in public since 1980, sold for $24.8 million Wednesday. The sale fell short of the record for the artist’s works, set Tuesday at Christie’s with the sale of his “Untitled VIII” from 1977. None of Wednesday’s buyers were identified. The Warhol record came just a day after the most expensive work of art ever sold at auction went for $142.4 million to conclude six minutes of feverish bidding at Christie’s.

LACONIA — A plan to convert the former Evangelical Baptist Church at Veterans Square into a pub and restaurant took a step forward Tuesday night when the Planning Board granted conditional approval of a request from David and Maureen Kennedy of Hampton for a change of use of the building from a place of worship to an eating and drinking establishment. Kennedy, who is close to finalizing the purchase of the building, is working on plans which will see a dining room established on the upper level of the building and a cafe which will serve as a hub for small ‘’faux shops’’ selling baked goods and Irish-themed articles on the lower level. The restaurant will be the Kennedy’s second, both housed in churches. The Holy Grail Restaurant and Pub in what what was St. Joseph’s Church on Main Street in Epping has twice been chosen as the state’s finest Irish pub by New Hampshire Magazine. He plans to add a second story to a triangular addition at the rear of the church building for the kitchen, offices, utilities and storage. Because the building occupies the entire lot, he is faced with reaching agreement with abutting property owners on access issues such as a walkway from the city parking lot at the rear of the property and perhaps a shared dumpster. Members of the Planning Board were sympathetic to the problems faced by Kennedy, who told the board that he has not yet reached any formalized agreement with his neighbors and that the site plan he is developing will be influenced by the agreements he reaches. At least two abutters, the Laconia Congregational Church and Kevin Campbell, said they were willing to work with him. Linda Tunnicliffe and John Walker of the church said that the church is constructing a brick walkway as part of its Community Way Project which will link the church and its parish house with a second floor covered elevator and bridge. The parish house is located next to the former Evangelical Baptist Church and extending the walkway in that direction is seen as a way of helping provide access to the new restaurant from the municipal parking lot used by the Downtown Farmers Market on Thursday nights.

‘’It would be the right solution for everyone,’’ said Tunicliffe as she showed drawings of what the completed project will look like and said that the new restaurant would be ‘’a beautiful addition to downtown.’’ Kennedy said that he was trying to work out an agreement with other restaurants in the area which might involve a shared dumpster. He has also agreed to pay half of the cost, $35,000, of bringing a new 10-inch water line to the lot which will allow him to install a sprinkler system in the building and the City Council recently agreed to pay half of the cost, up to $35,000 using funds from the Downtown TIFF District account, for the water line. The planning board has also agreed to waive the development impact fee of $6,900 for the restaurant due to the capital outlay it is making for the water line project. Keith Hall of Kramer and Hall Goldsmiths, which is located across the square at the Laconia Railroad Station, said that he is concerned that the private parking spaces next to his business will end up being used by customers of the new restaurant and hoped that signs will be put up to indicate that they are not pubic parking spaces. He also said that he believes a rear entryway into the new restaurant would be desirable. Planning Board Chairman Warren Hutchins said that the completed site plan will have a number of conditions to deal with, including parking and walking improvements, as well as lighting and compatibility of the architecture of the second floor addition with existing architecture in the downtown area and a possible entryway at the rear of the building. John Moriarty of the Main Street Initiative reminded Planning Board members that the 34-lot municipal parking lot which will be used for parking and the dumpsters was created by a special assessment on downtown businesses in 1985 and that it should be borne in mind that it was intended to serve all of the surrounding businesses. With that said, Moriarty said to Kennedy ‘’we really welcome you to the city and want this project to be successful.’’ City Planning Director Shanna Saunders said that “the project has been fast tracked by the city and that Kennedy hopes to have the business up and running by next summer.

COUNTY from page one to tell them that spending levels are unchanged since 2008 despite increases in areas like health insurance and fuel oil. This is something people should get an understanding of,’’ said Commissioner Ed Philpot (D-Laconia) when the commissioners met Wednesday morning. The commission is bracing for another contentious budget setting process with the Belknap County Convention, the 18-member group of legislators from the county which recently voted to go to court in a yearlong battle with the commissioners

over line item budget authority. Last year the battle began at the organizational meeting of the convention at which there was a failed attempt to strip all funds for employee pay raises from the proposed budget, which was followed by a closed-door meeting of the Republican majority of the convention which developed a strategy for cutting the proposed budget through asserting control over line items, a move which was resisted by the commissioners, who ultimately transferred funds within departments to restore money to line items, includsee next page

Tamworth man charged with armed robbery of $396 from Lakeport market LACONIA — A Tamworth man accused of an armed robbery at a Lakeport convenience store has been held on $50,000 cash bail after appearing in the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division yesterday. Affidavits obtained from court yesterday said Joseph W. Desbien, 41, of Union Hall Road #1 was initially arrested Tuesday at 8:20 p.m. in an apartment on Union Avenue because he was wanted on an open warrant for possession of heroin.

Police said they learned Desbien was at the apartment and during his subsequent interrogation admitted he robbed the store. Complaints said Desbien entered the P&P Market at 3:57 p.m. on Sunday and threatened the clerk with a knife. He allegedly robbed her of $396.62 from the cash drawer and is charged with one count of armed robbery. A probable cause hearing is scheduled for both cases for later this month.

OBAMCARE from page 2 Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who is in overall charge. “Even with the issues we’ve had, the marketplace is working and people are enrolling,” Sebelius said. Responding to GOP critics, she said the first premiums are not due until Dec. 15. The online, state-level insurance markets were envisioned as the new portal to coverage for people who don’t have health plans on the job. But the federal market was overwhelmed by technical problems when it opened Oct. 1, and the experience of state-run markets has been mixed. The administration said an additional 1 million individuals have been found eligible to buy coverage on the markets, with about one-third qualifying for tax credits to reduce their premiums. Another 396,000 have been found eligible for Medicaid, the safety-net program that is shaping up as the health care law’s early success story. For many Democrats, concerns over the cascade of website problems has been compounded by the focus on Obama’s misleading promise that Americans who liked their health insurance plans could keep them under the overhaul. But millions of people are receiving cancellation notices. They have plans that for various reasons don’t qualify for the law’s “grandfather

clause” protection against cancellations. Obama has said he’s sorry that people are losing their coverage and has vowed to find ways to address “holes and gaps” in the law. Advisers originally said the White House was considering administrative fixes, not legislative options. On Wednesday, Obama spokesman Jay Carney said, “If we can achieve this administratively, we will certainly look at that possibility,” but he added that the White House was also considering legislative ideas. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., scheduled an all-Democrats meeting Thursday with White House health care officials. Republicans, meanwhile, are holding hearings to keep the overhaul’s problems in the spotlight ahead of an election year. “It’s kind of interesting to see as Obamacare implodes how everybody’s running for cover,” said Rep. John Mica, R-Fla. And Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said, “Obviously, panic has set in on the other side.” The administration has staked its credibility on turning the website around by the end of this month. From the president on down, officials have said that will be running smoothly for the vast majority of users by Nov. 30.

from preceding page ing contracted benefits, which had been cut by the convention. A budget presentation made by the commission last year included a chart showing that since 2009 the county has eliminated 37 full-time positions, going from 208 in 2009 to 171 in 2013, while increasing the number of parttime positions from 26 to 46. The 2013 budget proposed expenditures of $26.8 million, which were not only less than the three previous budgets but also $2.9 million, or 9.9 percent, less than in 2008 and $2.2 million, or 7.6 percent, less than in 2009. However, the commission recommended augmenting revenues from sources other than property taxes by $2,100,000 compared to $3,750,000 the year before, which increased the amount to be raised by property taxes 8.9 percent. The convention reduced spending and adjusted revenues, trimming the tax commitment to $13.8 million, 1.1-percent less than the $14 million raised in 2012. This year commissioners have developed a preliminary budget which will increase appropriations 2.4 percent to $27,013,237 and the amount to be raised by taxes 7.2-percent — to $14,887,599.

They will present their proposed budget to the convention next month, at which time a public hearing will be held, and plan to make their case at that hearing. ‘’Since the dialogue is more difficult lately, we’ll have to have make the case in our presentation,’’ said County Administrator Debra Shackett. Philpot said ‘’we’ve had tremendous cutbacks in revenue across the board’’ and pointed out that since 2008 revenues, exclusive of fund balance, have declined from $13.4 million to $10.1 million, almost 25 percent. Meanwhile, the tax commitment has risen from $14.3 million to a projected $14.9 million, an increase of 4.3 percent. In 2008, $2 million of fund balance was added to revenues and the commission recommends applying an equal amount in 2014. ‘’The state is taking a larger chunk of the money that was going to the counties.’’ said Philpot, who doubted that a public information session on the budget solely for local officials would draw a large enough audience to have any impact on the budget discussion. ‘’We’ll have to go the selectmen. And that will mean a lot of meetings,’’ said Philpot. — Roger Amsden

A deal with Iran? Or, war with Iran? If Bibi Netanyahu succeeds in closing down America’s diplomatic path to detente with Iran, only the road to war will remain open. Which is exactly what Bibi wants. For what terrifies Tel Aviv, and rattles Riyadh, is not a U.S. war with Iran, but the awful specter of American rapprochement with Iran, a detente. Thus, when France’s foreign minister torpedoed the deal John Kerry flew to Geneva to sign, France soared in neocon esteem. The “cheese-eating surrender monkeys “ of 2003 who opposed the Iraq war suddenly became again the heroes of Verdun and the Marne. “Vive La France” blared the Wall Street Journal editorial declaiming, “Francois Hollande’s Socialist Government has saved the West from a deal that would all but guarantee that Iran becomes a nuclear power.” Did Hollande really save the West? Or did he just rack up points with the Saudi princes for when the next big arms contract comes up for bid? What is going on is a gravely serious matter. If the Netanyahu cabal succeeds in sabotaging U.S. negotiations with Iran, it is hard to see how we avoid another war that could set the Persian Gulf region ablaze and sink the global economy. And just what is it that has Netanyahu apoplectic? A six-month deal under which Iran would freeze all enrichment of uranium, in return for a modest lifting of sanctions, while the final agreement is negotiated. The final deal would put permanent limits and controls on Iran’s nuclear program to ensure it is not used to build bombs And there would be more and more intrusive inspections. How would this imperil Israel? Iran today has no atom bomb. Has never tested a bomb. Has never exploded a nuclear device. Possesses not a single known ounce of 90 percent enriched uranium, which is essential for a uranium bomb. Nor does Iran have enough 20 percent uranium to make a bomb. And part of the stockpile it did have has been converted into fuel rods. There are inspectors in all of Iran’s operating nuclear facilities. The Ayatollah has declared a fatwa against nuclear weapons. The Hassan Rouhani regime says it has no nuclear weapons program. And U.S. intelligence agrees with Iran. All 16 U.S. intelligence agencies in 2007, and, again, two years ago, said, with high confidence, that Iran has made no decision to build a bomb and has no nuclear weapons program. How would new restrictions and reductions on an Iranian nuclear program that has never produced an ounce of weaponsgrade uranium, let alone a bomb, threaten Israel, with its hundreds

of atom bombs? “You can’t trust the Iranians. They’re lying about their nuclear program,” says Lindsey Graham. Is U.S. intelligence also lying? Ten years ago, it turned out Saddam was telling the truth and it was Lindsey’s friends doing the lying about Iraq’s WMDs. Looks like the same old crowd up to the same old tricks. To abort Obama’s Iran initiative, Bibi is moving on four tracks. First, get Congress to accept Israel’s nonnegotiable demand that “Iran must give up all enrichment, shut down all nuclear facilities and ship all enriched uranium abroad” before any sanctions are lifted. This is an ultimatum masquerading as a negotiating position. Acceptance would entail an Iranian surrender Rouhani could never take home. It is a deal killer. Everyone knows it, even the Republicans now embracing the Israeli position as their own. Second, persuade Israel’s collaborators in Congress to impose harsh new sanctions, rub Iran’s nose in them, and scuttle the talks. Third, arouse Jewish communities worldwide to pressure home governments to block any deal. Sunday, Bibi told the General Assembly of Jewish Federations of North America that what Kerry was prepared to sign was a “bad and dangerous deal” that threatened Jewish survival, and, “on matters of Jewish survival, I will not be silenced.” Bibi intends to use the explosive issue of imperiled Jewish survival to break Obama and Kerry and force them to abandon their Iranian initiative. Finally, the Israeli lobby is behind the push by Lindsay Graham and Rep. Trent Franks to have Congress preemptively surrender its war powers, by authorizing Obama to launch a war on Iran at a time of his own choosing, without any further consultation with Congress. Remarkable. Self-proclaimed constitutional Republicans are about to vote Barack Obama a blank check for war. What the GOP fears is another episode like the one last summer where America rose as one and told Congress not to authorize any war on Syria. A panicked Congress capitulated, and there was no war. Today, though Obama and Kerry insist “all options are on the table,” Obama has no more authority to attack Iran today than he did Syria last summer. Hill Republicans seek to remedy that by a preemptive congressional surrender of their war power. One wonders if Netanyahu and his amen corner in Congress have considered the backlash worldwide should they succeed in scuttling Geneva and putting this nation on the fast track to another Mideast war Israel and Saudi may want but America does not.

LETTERS District 1 Councilor Ray Burton truly was a very special man To The Daily Sun, With the passing of our friend Ray, I have been thinking of him and different memories of how he made a difference to me or made me smile, as I am sure everyone in the state is doing! With this great loss I find comfort in these stories. Many times Ray would stop at Hart’s on a Friday evening on his way home to the North Country. He always had a small turkey dinner, maybe a glass of wine and always some great conversation with the gang. One night he came over to the table for some chat and started handing out the combs. My friend Barbara said “that is a guy comb; I couldn’t get that through my hair!” Ray calmly turned to her and said “dear, it’s not to comb your hair, it’s a collector!” Back in 2008 when the state passed home inspector licensing I decided that I wanted to apply to sit on the licensing board. So I acquired the paperwork and sent it in to Concord. Shortly thereafter I received a call from Ray. I will never forget it; I was sitting in my office doing paperwork and was a bit surprised that he would be calling me out of the blue.

“Carla, he said, I am very pleased that you are stepping up to do public service but I have some things to speak to you about.” Suddenly I felt a bit nervous. Even though I had many conversations with Ray in the past, it was Ray Burton, calling me, on business “affayas” Ray continued, “Why do you want to sit on this board?” I explained that I wanted to look out for the safety of the public. “Good”, he said. We talked for about 10 minutes and he said, “Now I want you to always remember, when you run for any public office, it is for the good of the citizens and never for personal or political gain!” “Now I want you to call each of the other counselors to speak to them personally and tell them why you want to sit on this board and here are their numbers.” “If you ever have any questions, call me on my “cah phone” any time.” I am still on that board and to this day every time we go in for a meeting I remember those words from my friend, Ray Burton. What a special guy. Carla Horne Meredith

Your point is that if Bush lied it’s okay for Obama to lie, too? To The Daily Sun, Lie, def: to make a statement or statements that one knows to be false, esp., with the intent to deceive. (Webster’s New World Dictionary) Alias, L.J. Siden once again attacks the messenger because he cannot stand anyone pointing out that the emperor has no clothes. (Get it L.J., your fairy tail reference?) He says Fox News lies and proves it by sighting their “fair and balanced” advertised motto. WOW! Wow, now there’s proof! Who could argue with that enlightened reasoning? Really now, this in response to the extensive list of provable lies and distortions I wrote of in my past letter? That’s what he has in response to my attack on Obama’s honesty and credibility? Well LJ, I’m laughing out loud. Now as to my “fairy tail” about Obama using fraud to get into Colum-

out Obama’s collage records and prove me wrong. Do that and I will apologize. Failing that, argue if you dare, one legitimate process that a pot smoking, class skipping, poor student (Obama’s own words) could manage to access two of the most prestigious universities in the world. Face it readers, L.J. has done his very best to distract your attention from real facts seen and heard even on the mainstream media outlets that just can’t cover for a congenital liar any longer. Adding his two cents worth is local favorite Henry Osmer, who cites Bush’s “lies”. Guess Henry’s point is, if Bush lied it’s okay for Obama to lie. Another detraction attempt by the good ol’ Henry. We’re talking about Obama here Henry, not Bush, not Carter, not Kennedy. Stay on subject if you can please. Steve Earle

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, November 14, 2013 — Page 7

LETTERS One thing we can agree on is voting Sen. Ayotte out of office in 2016

Conservatives were trying to avoid ‘shutdown’ with a compromise

To The Daily Sun, I would like to take an opportunity to respond to a letter written by Lew Henry published in your November 7 issue. His letter talked about the government shutdown and how it is the Tea Party’s fault. If you only listen to what the liberal media has to say, you can understandably make no other conclusion than it’s the Tea Party’s fault, even though it was not. Here is why: First, the liberals blamed the whole debacle on “Tea Party” Senator Ted Cruz, saying that he wanted to shutdown the government if Obamacare wasn’t repealed. But that is not a fact. You don’t know the truth of what he wanted unless you actually listened to what he had to say during his “filibuster.” He wanted to pass a continuing resolution so the government did not shut down, but he didn’t want Obamacare funded, as was stated in the House’s bill that was sent to the Senate. It was the Democrats and the RINOs in the Senate that voted that down. That’s right, the Dems and RINOs essentially voted to shut down the government because Obamacare was more important to them. Then another CR came through with the condition that the individual mandate to be delayed like the employer mandate had been. Again it was the Dems and RINOs that voted that down, not the Tea Party Senators. A third CR went through and again the Dems and RINOs voted it down, and the government shutdown ensued. It was not the Tea Party senators that voted for the government shutdown, it was the Dems and RINOs. Next, Mr. Henry states that the shutdown cost the government $24 billion. The government should have been spending money only on essential things that keeps the country running and safe, yet money was spent to block off and guard openair memorials (that are not normally guarded) and other tourist areas to keep people out. The Tea Party didn’t do that, Obama did. While many military bases and the stores where our military personnel and families get there discounted goods were closed, the bases where Obama plays golf were kept open so he could play while the government was shut down. The Tea Party didn’t do that, Obama did. And while important services like the

To The Daily Sun, If President Obama, the leader of the most powerful nation in the Free World, can negotiate and compromise with the Russians over Syrian chemical weapons, why did President Obama allow a “shut down” (President Obama’s words) of the U.S. government, instead of negotiating a compromise with his own U.S. Congress? Why was President Obama willing to inflict all this “pain and discomfort” on we, the people, the citizens of the United States of America, by allowing this so-called “government shut-down”, a term that substantially overstates the actual situation. As part of this so-called “government shut-down”, President Obama ordered the placement of barriers around our national open-air monuments such as the WW I Memorial on the DC Mall; President Obama ordered the furlough of military chaplains who were willing to celebrate Mass and baptisms for our men and women in uniform for free, but were told they would be punished for performing their religious rites. President Obama allowed that the D-Day Memorial in Normandy, France should be barricaded and the public excluded. President Obama allowed that our National Parks be closed in spite of the fact that the U.S. Treasury actually makes money from rent paid by private companies who employ about 400-500 individuals at these national parks in about a dozen states. President Obama allowed that the National Park Service place “traffic cones” along highway viewing areas outside Mount Rushmore, barring visitors from pulling over and taking pictures of the this universally recognized National monument. President Obama even attempted to block visitors from the privately funded George Washington’s Mount Vernon estate (the president later backed down on this one due to the overwhelming outcry from we, the people). Perhaps the most outrageous move of all by President Obama was the “slap in the face” to our American military heroes, when he allowed

Amber Alert website were shut down due to lack of funds, Michelle Obama’s useless “Let’s Move” website was kept up and running. The Tea Party didn’t do that, Obama did. These are facts that Mr. Henry has failed to recognize. I would appreciate it if he could give some examples of facts to defend his statement that the Tea Party wasted billions of dollars. My guess is he will be hard pressed to find any considering one of the main things the Tea Party stands for is smaller government and less spending Now to get to the real point of my letter. Mr. Henry has chastised Senator Ayotte and her “Tea Party” buddies for everything to do with the shutdown. I would like to inform him and the rest of the anti-Tea Party crowd that, while Senator Ayotte may have run on and may have been elected on Tea Party values, she is not a Tea Party senator. She lied to all of us. All you need to do is look at her voting record. She voted for the amnesty bill, which will bankrupt the country with the legalization of the 11 million criminals who broke our laws in entering the country and the extra “entitlements” that come with it. She also stuck with the RINOs and voted for the shutdown because she didn’t want to be on the outs with the majority of the Senate. I’ll completely agree with Mr. Henry on the fact that Senator Ayotte does not have her priorities straight. She did stick with her Washington buddies. Those buddies just happen to be the RINOs, not the Tea Party. She does not represent the Tea Party and she does not represent New Hampshire. The Tea Party believes that the Constitution is the supreme law of the land and those that have taken an oath to uphold and protect it should do just that. The current president, the Democrats, and the RINOs like Senator Ayotte have refused to do that. They have failed us. They are a disgrace to the oath of office. There will always be disagreement and I am sure Mr. Henry and I will still disagree on who caused the government shutdown. I sincerely hope however that we can agree on one thing. When November of 2016 comes around, it will be time to vote Senator Ayotte out of office. Scott Schoonmaker Laconia

Thank you to all of the good people who looked after our mom To The Daily Sun, This is a letter to thank all the people that helped with our mom. We would like to especially thank the senior center at LRGH. There are to many people to thank individually but we felt that mom couldn’t of been in better hands. We

would also like to thank all the caring people at the Belknap County Nursing Home who tried to make mom as comfortable as possible. Those who go the extra mile to put a smile on the residents faces. God Bless you all. The Pike-Perkins Family

Thanks to Rusty’s, Blaney’s & Bergeron’s for donations of cars To The Daily Sun, The Alton Fire Rescue Department would like to thank Rusty’s Towing, Blaney Auto Crushing and Bergeron’s

for the donation of cars. The department was able to do many trainings with the cars that were donated. Alton Fire Rescue Department

that the families of four soldiers killed in Afghanistan in early October would not receive death benefits or the money to pay for their funerals because of the government, so-called, shutdown. The list of transgressions perpetrated by President Obama against the American people in October 2013 alone can be extended even further! Yes, the non-negotiator in chief, President Obama, in an earlier attempt to “fundamentally change America”, an attempt that we, the people, must not forget, was President Obama’s “sequester-prompted” termination of the public tours of the White House, a brazen insult to the American people continuing even after offers from reliable private sources to fund continued citizen access to this national icon were summarily rejected. Here we are, then, in the aftermath of the so-called “government shutdown” of October 2013, we, the people, are told by the progressive/liberal media that conservatives should get the blame for this so-called “government shutdown”, even when it was known that the conservatives in the U.S. Congress would have been happy to negotiate (compromise) for a delay of the, so called, Affordable Care Act “individual mandate”. Folks, this compromise would afford no different treatment than the delay many businesses and unions have already received under this so-called Affordable Care Act! Due to software problems we, the people, are now experiencing an extended delay in the, so-called, Affordable Care Act implementation anyway! Even if the web access is fixed over the short term a 12 month delay for individuals seems a fair compromise to me. Oops; there’s that word again: “compromise”. Is President Barack Obama going to foist this same fiasco on us, the American people, again when our country comes to the same “can in the road” in four months? A sad state of affairs, indeed.

Need to dislodge purveyors of violence & crimes by military To The Daily Sun, It seems to me we are a people easily lead and influenced by administrative policies that justify on-going war and conflicts in several nations that pose no threat to our safety. This mania comes out of the event of 9/11 which caused the greatest upheaval of widespread fear affecting the American psyche as no other singular incident has! Consider: as a nation we allowed our military to assault Iraq and Pakistan with devastating force, killing more than a half-million people. Looking back 10 years ago, many say Iraq was a mistake! In a cold, calculating arrogance we simply write off this immense tragedy as if it was failure, and go on our way? What kind of people are we, after all. We watch television shows that often depict gun violence by both men and women with apparent disdain. Even cartoons display graphic violence time and again. If we disagree and protest the amount of violence in media, tele-

speak out strongly about its affect on our children, and our own lives? We have a violent past. As a people (read American history) we usually take what we what, and do as we want. Heroic at times: often we have used violence to assert our pre-eminence and authority regardless the cost of human life! We have instilled fear and distrust around the world because of our brute force on lesser nations — unable to defend themselves! We have violence on the streets and cities, further dividing people and isolating others. People in manufacturing who refuse to accept the fact that assault weapons have no place in a civilized society! The time is overdue for us to take charge and dislodge purveyors of violence and crimes by the military. This nation belongs to you and me and everyone who yearns for peace — at home, in our families, and in foreign lands. God help us in this endeavor! Leon R. Albushies

TRIAL from page one while the two were sitting next to each on a couch at the party. The girl never disclosed the assault until she told her therapist about it during a session in April of 2012. According to her mother, the girl had told her that Grant touched the top of her butt and that it made her uncomfortable. With no physical evidence except the child’s testimony and a few pictures and a video of portions of the evening, McLaughlin needs to poke enough holes in the girl’s story to create reasonable doubt in the minds of the nine men and three women who are the jurors that her client raped her with his finger. Grant has said that he gave the girl a “wedgie” when she passed gas in his face. He has also said the issue was discussed about seven months later when he and his family went to California to visit the girl’s family. The girl’s mother testified yesterday that until her daughter’s therapist told her about the allegation in April of 2012, she thought that all that had happened was that Grant had touched the top of her butt and he had told the family that he “probably” gave the girl a wedgie. The girl’s mother said the only thing out of the ordinary she remembered about the night of the party was a loud verbal argument between Grant and his wife (her sister). She said she had been drinking but her husband had not. She testified yesterday that after the argument she noticed her daughter was very upset but she had attributed her discomfort to the fight. She also said that she hadn’t spent a lot of time with her daughter that night because she was visiting with her mother (the girl’s grandmother) who she said she didn’t get to see that often. She said that until that time, Eric Grant was her daughter’s favorite uncle. “Oh she loved him. He was her favorite.” She said that after that night, the girl didn’t want to be around her uncle any more. With the therapist’s note excluded from the trial except for impeaching a witness, McLaughlin grilled the

mother about Grant’s California visit seven months later, a family trip to Jamaica in 2011, and her daughter’s visits to the therapist. Under direct questioning, the mother had testified that her daughter didn’t not want to be with Grant, that she “made her” go on the family trip to Jamaica, and that her daughter somewhat stayed away from him during the times the family was together after the 2006 alleged assault. The mother didn’t remember all the details and dates but testified that when she learned about the alleged assault in 2012, mother and daughter were not getting along very well. She said she was concerned primarily about her daughter’s marijuana use but was also concerned about her unusually poor grades. She described her daughter as a good student who got “A”s and “B”s and the occasional “C.” She also said that after the therapy, the disclosure, and Grant’s divorce from her sister, that mother and daughter got along fine again and are still fine today. Under cross-examination McLaughlin pressed the alleged victim’s mother about what she remembered from that night and the mother said she didn’t remember any farting incidents or wedgie incidents. She also said her daughter slept with her and her husband at her sister’s house that night, contradicting the girl’s recollection that she stayed upstairs at Grant’s in the same bedroom as her grandmother. The family flew back to California on New Year’s Day. When McLaughlin asked if she remembered the pink pajamas the girl remembers wearing, the mother said she did, recalling she thinks she bought them in New Hampshire. The mother also said she did her daughter’s laundry and would have remembered if there was blood on the bottoms or if there was any bloody underwear. She didn’t remember packing the clothes the day they flew home. The girl has testified that she was bleeding from the alleged penetration and there was blood streaks on her pajamas. She also testified that she saw blood when she went to urinate. The trial continues Thursday morning.

PARKING from page one professional, hospitality and service interests to be represented. In January, the council agreed to designate 34 of the 38 vertical parking spaces on the east side of New Salem Street for all-day parking, leaving four spaces immediately behind the historic railroad station restricted to two-hour parking for patrons of the businesses housed in the building. The 38 spaces had been evenly divided between two-hour and all-day parking. In reallocating the spaces the council was responding to business owners, who found that all-day parking for their employees had become scarce after Lakes Region Community Services (LRCS) occupied the old Federal Building on North Main Street. At the same time, the council prohibited on-street parking on Harvard Street between North Main Street and Dartmouth Street, where congestion posed risks to motorists leaving the Laconia Clinic lot by the Harvard Street exit. Both changes were introduced for a trial period set to expire with the lifting of the winter parking parking ban, which passed unnoticed. Last month, when City Manager Scott Myers recommended both changes remain permanent, the council deferred its decision until this week. Santaniello endorsed the arrangement, explaining that her agency provided as much on-site parking as the Planning Board permitted and appreciated the spaces on New Salem Street for employees. “I don’t think us parking there impedes any downtown business,” she said, and added that she found it “frustrating when there is an issue about us using those spaces they were empty most of the time.” However, Baer responded that “if there are so many empty spaces, you should have no objection to two-hour parking.” She reminded Santaniello that when the LRCS acquired the Federal Building there was sufficient parking on-site for its employees. Santaniello explained that in renovating the building many of those spaces were lost in order to comply building and fire codes, but that recently 10 spaces had been added. Noting that a restaurant would be opening on Veterans Square and

efforts are underway to expand business downtown, Baer said that without sufficient parking “everything’s for naught.” Santanuiello stressed that she also wants downtown to thrive and said the agency brought employees, clients and visitors to the city. “You have your opinion and I have my opinion,” she told Baer, “and we may not agree.” “I wish, I really wish I could address this with humor, with some other tool in the arsenal,” Moriarty began ominously. “We’re all trying to raise a tide that will lift all boats. You’ve got to know that. You’ve got to know that,” he continued, his tone sharpening and voice rising, “we don’t commit our resources because we feel like doing it. We do it so the community succeeds. ‘ “Excuse me, John,” Lipman interrupted. Would you tone down your tone a bit. I feel like I’m being yelled at.” “I really wish I could use humor,” Moriarty replied. “I’m obviously quite upset about this.” “You don’t need to use humor. Just talk in a level tone,” Lipman said. Saying that “our concern is not really two-hour parking, it’s what’s coming next,” Moriarty urged the council not to legislate “one parking space at a time.” “I’ve listened to you talk for 10 minutes,” said Hamel, “and I have no clue what you’re talking about — no clue. I don’t know what you’re looking for.” At this point Seymour intervened, offering to interpret what he called the “initial diatribe.” He said that Moriarty appeared to be asking for a comprehensive parking plan for downtown in place of a piecemeal approach. “Yes!” said Moriarty, who added that the plan should be based on data profiling the number of parking spaces, who uses them and for how long and so forth. Hamel said that the councilors relied on the property and business owners downtown to provide that information and urged them to present a plan rather than engage in a perpetual back and forth with the council. It was Baer who, reading through the minutes of past discussions of the parking question, proposed directing the Parking Committee to prepare a plan.

CHOLESTEROL from page 2 “We’re going to give statins to those who are the most likely to benefit.” Doctors say the new approach will limit how many people are put on statins simply because of a cholesterol number. Yet under the new advice, one-third of U.S. adults — 44 percent of men and 22 percent of women — would meet the threshold to consider taking a statin. Under the current guidelines, statins are recommended for only about 15 percent of adults. The guidelines were issued Tuesday by the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology. Some doctors not involved in writing the guidance worry that it will be tough to understand. “It will be controversial, there’s no question about it. For as long as I remember, we’ve told physicians and patients we should treat their cholesterol to certain goal levels,” said the Cleveland Clinic’s Dr. Steven Nissen. “There is concern that there will be a lot of confusion about what to do.”

The government’s National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute appointed expert panels to write the new guidelines in 2008, but in June said it would leave drafting them to the medical groups. New guidelines on lifestyle and obesity also came out Tuesday, and ones on blood pressure are coming soon. Roughly half the cholesterol panel members have financial ties to makers of heart drugs, but panel leaders said no one with industry connections could vote on the recommendations. “It is practically impossible to find a large group of outside experts in the field who have no relationships to industry,” said Dr. George Mensah of the heart institute. He called the guidelines “a very important step forward” based on solid evidence, and said the public should trust them. Heart disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. High cholesterol leads to hardened arteries that can cause a heart attack or stroke. Most cholesterol is made by the liver, so diet

changes have a limited effect on it. Current guidelines say total cholesterol should be under 200, and LDL, or “bad cholesterol,” under 100. Other drugs such as niacin and fibrates are sometimes added to statins to try to reach those goals, but studies show they don’t always lower the chances of heart problems. “Chasing numbers can lead us to using drugs that haven’t been proven to help patients. You can make someone’s lab test look better without making them better,” said Yale University cardiologist Dr. Harlan Krumholz, who has long urged the broader risk approach the new guidelines take. They say statins do the most good for: — People who already have heart disease. — Those with LDL of 190 or higher, usually because of genetic risk. — People ages 40 to 75 with Type 2 diabetes. — People ages 40 to 75 who have an estimated 10-year risk of heart

disease of 7.5 percent or higher, based on the new formula. (This means that for every 100 people with a similar risk profile, seven or eight would have a heart attack or stroke within 10 years.) Despite a small increased risk of muscle problems and accelerating diabetes in patients already at risk for it, statins are “remarkably safe drugs” whose benefits outweigh their risks, said Dr. Donald Lloyd-Jones, preventive-medicine chief at Northwestern. The patents on Lipitor, Zocor and other statins have expired, and they are widely available in generic versions for as little as a dime a day. One that is still under patent protection is AstraZeneca’s Crestor, which had sales of $8.3 billion in 2012. Aspirin — widely used to lower the risk of strokes and heart attacks — is not addressed in the guidelines. And many drugs other than statins are still recommended for certain people, such as those with high triglycerides.

Billings urges Inter-Lakes board to put money away for capital improvements By Mike Mortensen THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

MEREDITH — The Inter-Lakes School Board is being urged to commit itself to recommend putting money every year into a capital reserve fund to help soften the impact large-ticket expenditures can have on the district’s budget and taxes paid by district residents. Board member Mark Billings advised such a course of action during Tuesday evening’s School Board meeting. Billings, of Meredith, noted that the district is facing three capital improvement projects which are especially costly. One is a four-year phased replacement of the roof of Inter-Lakes Elementary School, which has a price tag estimated at $600,000. The second is repaving of a road used by school buses at the elementary school, as well as repairs and resealing of high school parking lot, at an expected cost of $145,000. The third is a proposal to spend $120,000 to replace the seats in the Inter-Lakes Community Auditorium at the high school. Billings said that the district is putting more effort into planning further ahead for capital projects. He said district administrators are currently working on a 10-year capital improvement plan. He said that putting $75,000 a year into a capital reserve account would help to prevent budget spikes that could otherwise occur due to bigticket capital projects. Placing money in a capital reserve account requires approval of voters at the annual School District Meeting. “Our first commitment is to our people,” Billings noted. “But we have $20 million worth of facilities and the

more we focus on maintaining and preserving our facilities we will save money in the long term.” NOTES: The board gave initial approval to district policies dealing with summer activities, safe-school measures, and advance placement courses. While there were little discussion on any of the policies, board member Carol Baggaley raised concern with a provision of the advance course policy that would allow a student to take an advance placement course regardless of that student’s grades in the subject and whether the student satisfied the prerequisites for the course. Superintendent Mary Ellen Ormond said while teachers and school counselors have an important role in advising students what courses they should take, that if a student’s parents wanted their child in a certain course then the school should defer to the parents’ wishes. But Baggaley felt that was unfair to high-achieving students in advance placement courses. Ormond noted that Tuesday’s vote was on a first reading of the policy and that the policy could be amended before being presented to the board for a second reading. The board must approve a policy twice before it is adopted. . . . . . The board voted to accept $3,300 in donations to support the Inter-Lakes Middle Tier and High School Theater Companies. The donations came from Meredith Village Savings Bank, Meredith Dental, Dr. Edward DeTolla, and the Inter-Lakes PTO. The board also voted to accept a $1,167 donations from the New Hampshire Electric Co-op Foundation to help pay for sixth graders at Sandwich Central School to visit four power plants in the state.

MARINES from page 2 Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton. “Our first priority is to provide the families with the support they need during this difficult time.” The deaths come about eight months after a mortar explosion killed seven Marines during a live-fire training exercise in Nevada. A military investigation determined human error was to blame for that

accident. According to the probe’s findings, a Marine operating a 60 mm mortar tube and ammunition did not follow correct procedures, resulting in the detonation of a high explosive round at the mortar position. The investigation also determined that the mortar team involved in the accident had not conducted “appropriate preparatory training.”

BULGER from page 2 by Bulger in 1974 addressed Bulger as “Satan” and described how his father, a member of a rival gang, first disappeared in 1974 but wasn’t found until decades later when his body was discovered in a watery grave. Sean McGonagle was 11 when his father, Paul, disappeared. He said Bulger called his family’s house the following year and said, “Your father won’t be coming home for Christmas.” When he asked, “Who’s this?” Bulger responded, “Santa Claus,” McGonagle said. “You’re a domestic terrorist fueled by greed and sickening evil,” McGonagle said. Several family members blasted corrupt FBI agents for protecting Bulger for years while he was working simultaneously as a crime boss and an FBI informant who ratted out the rival New England Mafia and other crime groups.

David Wheeler, the son of a Tulsa, Okla., businessman who was shot between the eyes by a hit man for Bulger’s gang, delivered a blistering condemnation of both the FBI and the Justice Department, which successfully argued to have his family’s wrongful death lawsuit dismissed on the grounds that it was filed too late. “They are as responsible for that murder as the defendant here sitting before you,” Wheeler said. He called Bulger a “governmentsponsored assassin” but said the “greatest shame of all” falls on the FBI. Former Boston FBI agent John Connolly Jr. — Bulger’s handler when he was an informant — was sentenced to 10 years in prison after being convicted of tipping the gangster off ahead of an indictment. After receiving the tip in 1994, Bulger fled Boston and remained a fugitive for more see next page

LACONIA — Six people including two children were taken to Lakes Region General Hospital last night after a three-car collision at the intersection of High Street and Union Avenue around 6 p.m. Fire Lt. Jay Ellingson said none of the injuries were life-threatening. One adult refused transport. Police closed Union Avenue and rerouted traffic around the area. Police Capt. Matt Canfield said it initially appears that a car coming down High Street tried to make a left onto Union Avenue and collided with a car headed east on Union Ave. The crash sent one of the cars into a minivan that was headed west on Union

Avenue. Taking a left turn from High Street is difficult because there is not much visibility beyond the downward slope on the western portion of Union Avenue. Also, when a car comes up Union Avenue headed east, it’s hard to know what lies beyond the crest of the hill. Ellingson said all three of Laconia’s ambulances and one from Gilford were needed to transport the victims. He said Stewart’s Ambulance covered Laconia during the transport. Canfield said the accident is under investigation. — Gail Ober

from preceding page 16 years until he was captured in Santa Monica, Calif., in 2011. Connolly was later convicted of second-degree murder in Florida for leaking information to Bulger that led to the slaying of a gambling executive. Judge Denise Casper asked Bulger if he wanted to speak, but he declined. She was slated to hand down Bulger’s sentence Thursday. Prosecutors have recommended two consecutive life sentences, plus five years. Lawyers for the 84-year-old Bulger declined to make a recommendation. Attorney Hank Brennan said Bulger refused to participate in the sentencing process because he believes his trial was a “sham.” During the trial, Bulger used the same word when he explained to the judge why he decided not to testify in his own defense. Bulger claims that a now-deceased federal prosecutor had given him immunity to commit crimes in exchange for Bulger’s offer to protect him from the Mafia. The judge

refused to allow Bulger to use that claim as a defense to his long list of crimes, including murders. Outside court, Bulger attorney J.W. Carney Jr. said despite Bulger’s stoic exterior, he was not “immune” to the emotion shown by victims’ families. “He was affected by it,” Carney said. Several family members implored Bulger to face them while they spoke. He refused, but did turn his head slightly to glance at two people. One was Steve Davis, the brother of Debra Davis, the 26-year-old girlfriend of Bulger’s former partner, Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi. A federal jury convicted Bulger in August in a racketeering indictment that included murder, extortion, money-laundering and weapons charges. The jury convicted Bulger in 11 out of the 19 killings he was charged with participating in during the 1970s and ‘80s but acquitted him of seven killings and issued a “no finding” in Davis’ murder.

PLYMOUTH — The Karl Drerup Art Gallery and Exhibitions Program at Plymouth State University will present the exhibition Charles Gibson: 20 Years of Graphic Design, November 19 through December 13 at the gallery in the Draper and Maynard Building on North Main Street in Plymouth. A gallery reception will be held from 4-6 p.m. November 19, and Gibson will spend two days on campus working with students and faculty of the graphic design program of the PSU Department of Art. The exhibition presents a selection of project panels, a mural and several individually framed posters illustrating how graphic design is used to communicate ideas. The exhibited works were created as way-finding solutions for graphic design clients in education, healthcare, business, community development, architecture, landscape architecture and the arts. The exhibition also includes highlights


Atty. Stanley Robinson is designated as a Federal Relief Agency by an act of Congress & has proudly assisted consumers seeking debt relief under the US Bankruptcy code for over 30 years. 603-286-2019 • A LANDMARK FOR GREAT FOOD, FUN AND ENTERTAINMENT!

from Gibson’s team’s 1993 prize-winning submission to “The Electric Vehicle and the American Community,” a national planning and design competition hosted by the Smithsonian Institution. Gibson suggests that students and guests consider how graphic design contributes to their culture, and the relationship of graphic design to other design specialties such as industrial design or product design, and architecture. He says, “There seems to be more and more ‘blurring of boundaries’ in design these days.” Gibson is looking forward to meeting with graphic design students to discuss environmental graphic design, a specialty that is multidisciplinary and very often involves considerable collaboration with others. He will also lead a conversation about what it is like to work as a professional artist with clients, adjusting design concepts to meet their needs. Charles Gibson Design is a multidisciplinary design practice founded in 1987, with expertise in environmental graphic design—sign programs and master plans, kiosk design, interpretive programs, exhibitions and architectural enhancements. In addition, Gibson has significant experience in the traditional two-dimensional disciplines of identity and print graphic design, and three-dimensional applications in product design and packaging. Gibson holds a BFA in graphic design from the Rhode Island School of Design and has studied in Rome and at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Basel, Switzerland. He began his professional experience as assistant designer at the Hopkins Center Graphic Design Studio at Dartmouth College. He also earned an MFA in graphic design from Yale University. He has worked at Architects Collaborative, Inc. in Cambridge, Massachusetts and has taught at The Boston Architectural Center, Massachusetts College of Art, Plymouth State University and Colby-Sawyer College. He has received the Award of Excellence from the Association of American Art Museums and the Wolf Trap Medal. Gibson is a professional member of the Society for Environmental Graphic Design and an affiliate member of the New Hampshire Chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

James W. King, Jr., 88 ESCONDIDO, Calif. — James “Jim” W. King, Jr., father, grandfather, brother and friend, went home to be with the Lord on Oct. 19, 2013. Jim leaves behind his loving wife of 41 years, Pauline, son William and daughter Debra, step children Larry and Cheryl, sister Phyllis Clairmont of Gilford, N.H. Jim was preceded in death by his son John and two grandsons, Jesse and James. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him. Born on January 25, 1925 in Concord, N.H. to parents James W.

He married Virginia, his first wife and mother of his children in June, 1947. Jim and Virginia lived in East Concord for a few years, during which time Jim worked for H. R. Humphreys Refrigeration Co. Having an interest in boating, he spent some of his summer days in Winnisquam with his mother and two siblings, Phyllis and Skip, all the while having fun with the small row boat, a canoe, a small seven-

foot boat we called the “pumpkinseed” and a kayak. Jim served honorably during World War II. On D-Day Jim landed on Utah Beach, Normandy. Jim married Pauline H. Bird in Dec. 1972. He worked for Lockheed Aircraft during his years in California. Jim and Pauline moved to Lake Havasu City, Ariz. in 1989 to enjoy a long and fulfilling retirement.

He will be interned Nov. 14, 2013 at 10 a.m. at the Miramar National Cemetary in San Diego, Calif. The family wishes to express their thanks to everyone for their support and kind words.

Pease Library hosts author of book on 1938 Hurricane PLYMOUTH — The Pease Public Library will present Lourdes Aviles, author of the book Taken By Storm, 1938: A Social and Meteorological History of the Great New England Hurricane. The program will be held in the Community Room downstairs in the Pease Public Library at 4 p.m. on Thursday, November 14. This program is free and open to the public, refreshments will be provided. Lourdes Aviles will read from her book. Dr. Aviles is an Associate Professor of Meteorology at Plymouth State University.

On September 21, 1938 one of the most powerful storms of the twentieth century came unannounced into the lives of New Yorkers and New Englanders, leaving utter devastation in its wake. The Great Hurricane, as it came to be known, changed everything, from the landscape and its inhabitants’ lives, to Weather Bureau practices, to the measure and kind of relief New Englanders would receive during the Great Depression and the resulting pace of regional economic recovery.

Professor Harp Blues Band at Pitman’s Friday night Lakeland School students raise funds for Children’s Auction MEREDITH — Jayda Glines and Michele Loyer of Lakeland School in Meredith came up with a Halloween candy collection box for Operation Gratitude for our Troops. Lakeland School students are encouraged to participate in two community service projects during the school year and this seemed like a very sweet way to help. Jayda a 3rd grader and Michele a 7th grader spread the word with flyers and their school mates came in the next day with trick or treat candy to donate. The girls collected 26 pounds and brought it to the Children’s Dentistry of the Lakes Region. Dr. Kennel and Dr. Smith invited kids to donate their candy in exchange for each pound they would get $1 in cash. Jayda and Michele received $26 and the girls had hopes in helping with the candy shipping cost, but seeing a collection bucket for the WLNH Children’s Auction, they put $20 in the bucket. Jayda left thinking that, she and Michele would buy cat litter for the Humane Society with the other $6. Once Jayda had a moment to reflect and to realize what the Children’s Auction does, she ran back in and put the other $6 in the donation bucket for the WLNH Children’s Auction.

Franklin VNA & Hospice holding open house on Tuesday

LACONIA — The Professor Harp Blues Band will perform at Pitman’s Freight Room on Friday, Nov. 15 at 8 p.m. Admission is $12. Pitman’s is a BYOB venue. Although born and raised as Hugh Holmes of Boston, Mass., the emanations from his harmonica and vocals make it clear that Professor Harp has the blues of Texas and the whole wide Delta coursing through his veins. Primarily playing a sparse, yet full-sounding brand of no-nonsense, no-frills Texas style blues, Professor Harp specializes in what he calls, ‘roots music’. “It’s whatever makes me feel good and moves me, so to speak.” Indeed it has evolved while continuing to move audiences for decades. Under the influence of many diverse blues greats, Professor Harp has developed a robust playing style. He often utilizes the Leslie rotating-speaker sound

system to give his harp a Hammond organ timbre, while he alternately and simultaneously employs the standard or traditional ‘electrified’ blues harp. The Professor tops this off by singing the blues with an infectious fervor, supported at his strictest insistence by only top-flight musicians on guitar, bass, and drums. Professor Harp performed with various bands throughout the Northeast including legends Solomon Burke and Luther ‘Guitar Jr.’ Johnson and played live on NBC’s Today Show. Among the legions of hot performances at rocking blues clubs, the memories that often stand out for The Professor are the nights his harp helped to swell the room, in a spontaneous jam with his old mentor, the inimitable bluesman Muddy Waters. Professor Harp will perform with Howard Randall and his band. Doors open at 7:30 p.m.

Ray Burton received prestigious Blair Award from Plymouth State University PLYMOUTH — Plymouth State University has honored one of New Hampshire’s most recognized public servants with its highest award for public service. Raymond S. Burton, a member of the New Hampshire Executive Council and a Grafton County Commissioner, has long been a symbol of public service in the state. And now, his alma mater, Plymouth State University, whose own motto is Ut Prosim (“That I May Serve”), has honored Burton with its Henry W. Blair Award for Distinguished Public Service. The University’s honor of Burton was bestowed a short time prior to his death at age 74. Burton passed away on Nov. 12 as a result of complications

from kidney cancer. Plymouth State University President Sara Jayne Steen presented the award to Burton. “Ray Burton is there for everyone, advocating for what is fair and right, tireless in his commitment,” Steen said. “At his core, Ray values New Hampshire and, by his presence, he makes it a better place. He is a true native son of the Granite State, and Plymouth State University is proud to honor him.” “I was honored to receive the Henry Blair Award from President Sara Jayne Steen,” Burton said. “It was humbling to know that I won such a prestigious recognition.

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis

The minor win you experience will give you fresh energy for when you return to your mountainous endeavor tomorrow. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Some believe that giving children too many things robs them of their creativity. Today it may feel as though you have too many resources to be creative. What would you do if you had less? How would you make due? AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Usually, it’s important to make your deal before you start doing the work. But in today’s case, you would be wise to do a small chunk of the work before you make a deal so you better understand all that’s involved in this job. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It’s better to contribute meaningful, useful work to the world and not be famous than to be famous and make headlines for doing ordinary things that other people do every day. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 14). Think of yourself as having plenty of time and freedom. You can afford to experiment, and it makes your life richer and more interesting to do so. New friends next month fit in beautifully with the old. Affections develop fast and run deep. There are windfalls in January and July. September brings a move. Libra and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 1, 22, 37 and 41.

by Chad Carpenter

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Maybe it’s because you’ve been so effective at this in the past, but today it’s as though everyone is coming to you with the same imperative: “Make me feel important!” Rest assured, you’ll get something out of it, too. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your wonderfully functioning brain has developed a number of ways to help you manage. Some of those ways no longer suit you, but you are not your brain’s habits! Separate the two and stop feeling guilty, and change will be easier. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Those who think charm is about saying astute, adorable or funny things have it all wrong. You know the secret: Charm is the art of making other people feel pumped up, usually because you listened to them. CANCER (June 22-July 22). There’s something on the table to be won by the person who can make the best case for it. Examine this prize carefully, though. It may not be worthwhile. Perhaps the real winner of the argument will be the one who walks away. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You will be unflappable and accepting of others. This takes confidence and is only possible because you feel that if you really need to defend yourself, it will be easy for you to do. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If you want your time and attention to be your own today, try to listen for where conversations are headed and get out while the getting’s good. Otherwise, you’ll be on the receiving end of a long, boring story about nothing. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). In days of old, life was hard until it got harder. Children worked, everyone struggled to eat, and life was a daily battle. Comparatively, life now is pretty good for a lot of people. That’s why you don’t feel inclined to put up with whining in any form. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Those who have nothing to say but say it anyway will make whimsical connections that over the course of time may prove more meaningful than you might have expected. So listen to everyone. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Take time off from that ambitious project you’ve been working on to accomplish a simple, small task.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Thursday, Nov. 14, the 318th day of 2013. There are 47 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 14, 1862, during the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln gave the go-ahead for Maj. Gen. Ambrose Burnside’s plan to capture the Confederate capital of Richmond; the resulting Battle of Fredericksburg proved a disaster for the Union. On this date: In 1851, Herman Melville’s novel “Moby-Dick; Or, The Whale” was first published in the United States. In 1881, Charles J. Guiteau went on trial for assassinating President James A. Garfield. (Guiteau was convicted and hanged the following year.) In 1889, inspired by Jules Verne, New York World reporter Nellie Bly (Elizabeth Cochrane) set out to travel around the world in less than 80 days. (She made the trip in 72 days.) In 1910, Eugene B. Ely became the first aviator to take off from a ship as his Curtiss pusher rolled off a sloping platform on the deck of the scout cruiser USS Birmingham off Hampton Roads, Va. In 1922, the British Broadcasting Co. began its domestic radio service. In 1940, during World War II, German planes destroyed most of the English town of Coventry. In 1944, Tommy Dorsey and his orchestra recorded “Opus No. 1” for RCA Victor. In 1969, Apollo 12 blasted off for the moon. In 1970, a chartered Southern Airways DC-9 crashed while trying to land in Huntington, W.Va., killing all 75 people on board, including the Marshall University football team and its staff. In 1972, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed above the 1,000 level for the first time, ending the day at 1,003.16. In 1986, the Securities and Exchange Commission imposed a $100 million penalty against inside-trader Ivan F. Boesky and barred him from working again in the securities industry. In 1997, a jury in Fairfax, Va., decided that Pakistani national Aimal Khan Kasi should get the death penalty for gunning down two CIA employees outside agency headquarters. Ten years ago: John Kerry became the second Democratic hopeful to opt out of public financing for his presidential run, following the example of rival Howard Dean. Five years ago: A lunar probe from India made a planned crash-landing onto the surface of the moon. Space shuttle Endeavour and a crew of seven blasted into the night sky, bound for the international space station. One year ago: President Barack Obama held his first news conference since winning a second term. He challenged congressional Republicans to let taxes rise on the wealthiest Americans, saying that would ease the threat of another recession as the nation faced the “fiscal cliff” of expiring tax breaks and across-the-board spending cuts scheduled to take effect at the start of 2013. Baseball’s Cy Young Awards went to Tampa Bay’s David Price in the American League and R.A. Dickey of the New York Mets in the National League.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, November 14, 2013— Page 25


Dear Annie: I am madly in love with my ex-fiancee. We have been separated since March but have been talking about getting back together and starting a family. The problem is, while we were separated, I slept with another woman. It happened at a weak point in my life, and I don’t plan to do it again. Now the other woman says she is pregnant. I have asked for proof, but she hasn’t provided any. We did use a condom, but it broke. Should I tell my almost-fiancee or wait until I have physical proof? I know if I tell her, she will be immensely hurt and may never want to see me again. I don’t want to lose the love of my life and my best friend over this. Please help me. -- On a Break Dear Break: It is always a bad idea to begin a relationship with dishonesty. Word is likely to get back to your fiancee, so you must tell her first. Don’t make excuses for your behavior. Take responsibility, tell her you are deeply sorry, and ask for forgiveness. Say that you understand she is disappointed and hurt, and that you will give her as much time as she needs to think about your future together. We hope she decides to give you another chance, and that you will be worthy of her trust. Dear Annie: I have been disabled for several years. I have a hip problem and arthritis in both legs, so I need to use the handicapped toilet stall because of its higher seat and room for mobility. I use a cane to get around, so it’s obvious I have a hard time walking. There are times when I need a wheelchair. You would think that Jill Q. Public would be courteous, and in most cases, they are. However, I have encountered women who let children play in the handicapped stall for a half-hour and, once, a young woman who specifically wanted that stall

even though there were others available. I even have been shoved aside because of the race to get in. Just because I move slower doesn’t mean my need isn’t as urgent. Please, ladies, life is challenging enough without this kind of rudeness. Consider how you would want to be treated if you were in my shoes. -- Vermont Reader Dear Vermont: We cannot understand how anyone would deny the use of a handicapped stall to someone who requires it. Please don’t be reluctant to speak up if someone grabs that stall while you are waiting. Here’s the rule: The handicapped stall may be used by an able-bodied person provided no one needs it, no other stall is available and you will be quick. When you can wait for a regular stall, please do so. Dear Annie: I have a response for “Waiting for Your Answer,” who complained that every time he went to the bank, the greeter at the door and the tellers made small talk with the customers. He said it took up too much time. Apparently, he’s never worked with the public. I work in a bank. My employers have told us to be friendly to the customers. If it’s a regular customer, we might ask about the family or their job. To me, that is simply personalized service. I prefer to do business where someone will acknowledge me rather than ignore me. If “Waiting” doesn’t want to be spoken to, he has three options: One, ignore their friendly questions. Two, complain to the person in charge. Three, take his business elsewhere, where they move people through like robots on a conveyer belt. “Waiting” needs to learn to stop and smell the roses -- or start earlier. -- Glad To Be a Friendly Customer Service Rep
