Brenda Baer says this next term on council will be her last

LACONIA — City Councilor Brenda Baer, who is running without an opponent for her fifth consecutive term in Ward 4, confirmed yesterday that her next term will be her last. “Absolutely, positively,” she said, “unless they find a cure for old age. You can’t go on forever.” She had made an offhand remark to the same effect the night before at the Belknap Mill where she was among the handful at see BAER page 30

Pitman’s appears to be arson target; 2nd time this fall By Gail OBer


LACONIA — For the second time in a month, it appears Pitman’s Freight Room on New Salem Street has been the target of an arsonist. At 3:05 a.m. yesterday, firefighters again responded to the live entertainment venue and function hall to extinguish a fire that started and burned in the exact same area as a fire that that burned on September 28. Firefighters also responded at the same time to three additional fires that were apparently set in two dumpsters and a wooden fence behind the Beacon Street

West building (Streetcar Place) that houses Hector’s restaurant and other businesses and offices. “This is really upsetting,” said Pitman’s manager Maureen Bienairz-Pond as she surveyed the damage around noon yesterday. “This is my second home.” Last night there was supposed to be a Halloween party at Pitman’s that was slated to be the grand re-opening. This weekend a blues band was scheduled to perform, but Bienairz-Pond said yesterday that all upcoming events again needed to be canceled. see ARSON page 15

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A federal appeals court on Thursday ruled that most of Texas’ tough new abortion restrictions can take effect immediately — a decision that means as least 12 clinics won’t be able to perform the procedure starting as soon as Friday. A panel of judges at the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans said the law requiring doctors to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital can take effect while a lawsuit challenging the restrictions moves forward. The panel issued the ruling three days after District Judge Lee

TORONTO (AP) — Toronto police said Thursday they have obtained a video that appears to show Mayor Rob Ford smoking a crack pipe — a video that Ford had claimed didn’t exist and has been at the core of a scandal that has embarrassed and gripped Canada for months. Police Chief Bill Blair said the video, recovered after being deleted from a computer hard drive, did not provide grounds to press charges. Ford, a populist mayor who has repeatedly made headlines for his bizarre behavior, vowed not to resign. Speaking outside the door his office, where visitors were free to check out the Halloween decorations, Ford said with a smile: “I have no reason to resign.” He said he couldn’t defend himself because the affair is see MAYOR page 10

Yeakel said the provision serves no medical purpose. In its 20-page ruling, the appeals court panel acknowledged that the provision “may increase the cost of accessing an abortion provider and decrease the number of physicians available to perform abortions.” However, the panel said that the U.S. Supreme Court has held that having “the incidental effect of making it more difficult or more expensive to procure an abortion cannot be enough to invalidate” a law that serves a valid purpose, “one not

designed to strike at the right itself.” The panel left in place a portion of Yeakel’s order that prevents the state from enforcing the U.S. Food and Drug Administration protocol for abortion-inducing drugs in cases where the woman is between 50 and 63 days into her pregnancy. Doctors testifying before the court had said such women would be harmed if the protocol were enforced. After Yeakel halted the restrictions, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott had see ABOORTION page 7

Appeals court blocks ruling that stopped New York’s stop & frisk program NEW YORK (AP) — A federal appeals court on Thursday blocked a judge’s ruling that found the New York Police Department’s stop-and-frisk policy discriminated against minorities, and it took the unusual step of removing her from the case, saying interviews she gave during the trial called her impartiality into question. The city applauded the appeals court’s decision. Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly, who was shouted down over the tactic

by students during a speech at Brown University this week, said he was pleased by it. “This is indeed an important decision for all New Yorkers and for the men and women of the New York City police department who work very hard day in and day out to keep this city safe,” he said. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the ruling by U.S. District Judge Shira A. Scheindlin will be on hold pend-

ing the outcome of an appeal by the city. But it may be a nonissue after next week’s mayoral election: Democrat Bill de Blasio, who’s leading in polls, has said he would drop objections to the ruling, which calls for major changes to the police tactic. The judge decided in August the city violated the civil rights of tens of thousands of blacks and Hispanics by disproportionally stopping, questioning and sometimes frisking them.

Georgia prosecutors reviewing facts regarding teen found dead in gym mat MACON, Ga. (AP) — A federal prosecutor said Thursday that he is conducting a formal review of facts and evidence in the death of a teenager whose body was found inside a rolled-up wrestling mat in his high school gym. U.S. Attorney Michael Moore said that if

he uncovers sufficient evidence to warrant a criminal civil rights investigation into the death of Kendrick Johnson he will ask the FBI to conduct it. “I will follow the facts wherever they lead. My objective is to discover the truth,” Moore said.

Boston will celebrate World Sox fans waited 95 years to celebrate title at Fenway (AP) — More than an hour after the With fans roaring on every pitch and cameras Series championship with finalBOSTON out, players lingered on the field and fans stood flashing, Koji Uehara struck out Matt Carpenter for by their seats, cheering, singing and applauding. the final out. The Japanese pitcher jumped into the Saturday duck boat parade A celebration nearly a century in the making arms of catcher David Ross while Red Sox players

BOSTON (AP) — Boston will toast the World Series champion Red Sox with a duck boat parade on Saturday, Mayor Thomas Menino and team officials announced Thursday, giving fans an opportunity to revel in the improbable success of a team that finished in last place just one season ago. “What a year,” Menino said at City Hall in unveiling plans for the parade. “From worst to first.” Players will climb aboard the amphibious vehicles inside Fenway Park at 10 a.m. Saturday for the socalled rolling rally, officials said. The parade route, the same as the one used in 2004 when the Red Sox won their first World Series title in 86 years, will travel down Boylston Street, where in April two bombs killed 3 people and injured more than 260 others at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. The duck boats will go on to the Charles River for a time, which they did in 2004 but not in 2007 when the Red Sox also won the World Series. The New England Patriots, Boston Celtics and Boston Bruins have also celebrated titles with duck boat parades in recent years. Red Sox officials said the parade was not merely an opportunity for fans to thank the team but also for the team to show its appreciation to the city, and they expected most, if not all, players to participate. “I’m very optimistic that we will get nearly a full boat,” said Larry Lucchino, the team’s president and chief executive. Organizers said they wanted to hold the parade on Saturday so as many fans as possible could attend, especially families with children. The Red Sox defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 6-1 at Fenway Park on Wednesday night to take the series in six games. It was the first time since 1918 that the team had clinched a World Series championship in its iconic ballpark.

was unfolding at the old ballpark, a long-awaited moment generations of New Englanders had never been able to witness. Turmoil to triumph. Worst to first. A clincher at Fenway Park. David Ortiz and the Boston Red Sox, baseball’s bearded wonders, capped their remarkable turnaround by beating the St. Louis Cardinals 6-1 in Game 6 on Wednesday night to win their third World Series championship in 10 seasons. When it was over, Ortiz took a microphone on the field and addressed the city, just as he did a week after the marathon bombings last April. “This is for you, Boston. You guys deserve it,” the Series MVP said. “We’ve been through a lot this year and this is for all of you and all those families who struggled.” And the Red Sox didn’t even have to fly the trophy home. For the first time since Babe Ruth’s team back in 1918, Boston won the title at Fenway. The 101-year-old stadium, oldest in the majors, was jammed with 38,447 singing, shouting fans anticipating a party that had been building for more than nine decades. “Maybe they won’t have to go another 95 years,” said John Farrell, a champion in his first season as Boston’s manager. Shane Victorino, symbolic of these resilient Sox, returned from a stiff back and got Boston rolling with a three-run double off the Green Monster against rookie sensation Michael Wacha. Pumped with emotion, Victorino pounded his chest with both fists three times. John Lackey became the first pitcher to start and win a Series clincher for two different teams, allowing one run over 6 2-3 innings 11 years after his Game 7 victory as an Angels rookie in 2002.

rushed from the dugout and bullpen as the Boston theme “Dirty Water” played on the public-address system. There wasn’t the “Cowboy Up!” comeback charm of “The Idiots” from 2004, who swept St. Louis to end an 86-year title drought. There wasn’t that cool efficiency of the 2007 team that swept Colorado. This time, they were Boston Strong — playing for a city shaken by tragedy. “I don’t think we put Boston on our back. I think we jumped on their back,” Jonny Gomes said. “They wouldn’t let us quit.” After a late-season collapse in 2011, the embarrassing revelations of a fried chicken-and-beer clubhouse culture that contributed to the ouster of manager Terry Francona, and the daily tumult of Bobby Valentine’s one-year flop, these Red Sox grew on fans. Just like the long whiskers on the players’ faces, starting with Gomes’ scruffy spring training beard. “As soon as we went to Fort Myers, the movie’s already been written,” Gomes said. “All we had to do was press play, and this is what happened.” The only player remaining from the 2004 champs, Ortiz had himself a Ruthian World Series. He batted .688 (11 for 16) with two homers, six RBIs and eight walks — including four in the finale — for a .760 on-base percentage in 25 plate appearances, the second-highest in Series history. “We have a lot of players with heart. We probably don’t have the talent that we had in ‘07 and ‘04, but we have guys that are capable (of staying) focused and do the little things,” Ortiz said. Even slumping Stephen Drew delivered a big hit in Game 6, sending Wacha’s first pitch of the fourth into the right-center bullpen for a 4-0 lead. By the see RED SOX page 12

Jim Hightower

Say ‘No way’ to NSA The very fine public servant, Russ Feingold, cautioned against the steady slippage of our democracy toward autocracy back in October 2001, when he stood tall as the only U.S. Senator to vote against the Patriot Act. Warning that its antidemocratic provisions would create a nation “where the government is entitled to open your mail, eavesdrop on your phone conversations, or intercept your email communications,” Feingold rightly concluded: “That country wouldn’t be America.” So here we are, having devolved from the founders’ principled insistence on erecting the strongest palisades for the defense of the people’s personal liberties — to now having a secret government inside our borders and inside our lives. The National Security Agency is running a labyrinthine, secret, extravagant, unconstitutional and out-of-control electronic surveillance operation that targets you. Yes, you! And me. Its not just German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other head-of-state allies who are furious that this veracious nest of snoops has been listeningin on their private conversations for years, but also everyone living in our own Land of the Free. We citizens have been redefined by our government as suspects. Not that NSA officialdom actually thinks that you, Mr. Upright or Ms. Doright, are terrorists or even “persons of interest” — but, then again, you might be. So, the spook bureaucracy has unilaterally chosen to create an elaborate, electronic Rube-Goldbergish spy matrix that (A) appropriates and agglomerates everyone’s “metadata” — a geek term defined as data that provides information about other data — channels it into (B) banks of rapidly spinning supercomputers that (C) analyze your and my terrorist inclinations, based on (D) the phone calls we make and get, (E) e-mails we send and receive, (F) websites we visit and topics we Google, (G) Facebook friends and pages we like, and (H) credit card expenditures and bank transactions we make. Even the code-names of NSA’s array of electronic eyes are almost comically Orwellian: PRISM, Tempora, XKeyscore, and — my favorite — Boundless Informant. Boundless indeed. But all this, and for what? To make you and me safe from terrorists, the hierarchy chants in unison. Constantly pointing to 9/11, the spies and their political henchmen solemnly assert that, hypothetically, bulk surveillance of every American might have, possibly could have,

maybe would have stopped that horrific plot. But the phone conversations that mattered in that case were those that did NOT happen — the breakdown in communication between the CIA and the FBI, and between FBI headquarters and its local agents. When the top brass of U.S. SpyWorld did a dog-and-pony show for the House intelligence committee on June 18, they claimed that “dozens” of terrorist attacks had been prevented since 9/11 by NSA’s SuperVac programs. Dozens? “More than 50,” clarified NSA’s director. But wait, how many of those were plots for terrorist attacks on our soil? “A little over 10,” he mumbled. That’s it? Years of scooping up ALL metadata on EVERY American to find only 10 plots? Moreover, he was able to name only four of those 10, and none were serious threats to do major harm to Americans. In fact, one involved a bombing in India, one is a questionable case of $8,500 ostensibly sent to terrorists in Somalia, one was actually uncovered by regular police work, and the fourth was not a plot to attack the U.S., but to send funds abroad to al-Qaida. For this, we should shred our Bill of Rights? “We’ve got congressional oversight and judicial oversight,” Obama said to a reporter on Sept. 13, then expressed exasperation that people don’t have faith in the system, “And if people can’t trust not only the executive branch, but also don’t trust Congress and don’t trust federal judges to make sure that we’re abiding by the Constitution, due process, and rule of law, then we’re going to have some problems here.” Well, yes sir, you do have some problems, BIG ones. Obama and the surveillance establishment are proposing a bit more “disclosure” to fix the agency’s PR problem. But that’s just warmed over B.S. We can’t give him — or Congress — a pass on this. It’s too big, too destructive of our values and self-respect. NSA’s domestic spy matrix and the Patriot Act itself confront us as a multi-eyed, hydra-headed, democracy-devouring monster. Forget disclosure; the monster must be dismantled. (Jim Hightower has been called American’s most popular populist. The radio commentator and former Texas Commissioner of Agriculture is author of seven books, including “There’s Nothing In the Middle of Road but Yellow Stripes and Dead Armadillos” and his new work, “Swim Against the Current: Even Dead Fish Can Go With The Flow”.)

LETTERS Let me provide some examples of where Fox News has lied To The Daily Sun, On Tuesday, Oct. 29, frequent letterwriter Steve Earle, challenged “. . . any liberal to give readers an example of a lie told by Fox News.” I have no aspirations to liberalism, but if he will accept a response from a fellow writer, I would like to give it a shot. On Oct. 11, Sean Hannity invited three couples to tell his audience how the Affordable Care Act (ACA or ObamaCare) adversely affected their lives. Hannity said, “These are the stories that the media refuses to cover.” The stories the couples told, however, seemed at odds with ACA provisions. Consequently, fact checkers investigated. What follows is from the work of one of them, Eric Stern. He independently interviewed each couple and conducted cost comparison analyses. Couple 1: Their claims: They said they could not grow their business. They had to keep employees in part-time status and take other steps to reduce ACAassociated costs. The truth: Their construction business has four employees. The ACA imposes no cost, no insurance requirements (absolutely none) on any business with less than 50 employees. There is one and only one requirement for such a small business. It must notify employees the insurance exchange ( exists. Couple 2: Background: The male quit his job (which provided health benefits) a few years ago to start his own business. The couple are now paying $1,100 a month ($13,200 a year) for health insurance. The policy has a $2,500 per person deductible and does not cover one of their two children. The female has a pre-existing condition that would cost another $600 a month to insure. That would bring their total cost to $1,700 a month or $20,400 annually (still with no coverage for the second child). Their claims: The couple’s insurer notified them it will terminate their policy and replaced it with an ACAcompliant policy. The insurer also said it was shrinking its provider network. This might mean the couple would have to change physicians. This shows Obama lied when he said people could keep existing policies and medical

providers. The truths: The couple are correct. Obama assurances regarding continuity of coverage and provider access were not true. The president’s apologists can try to sugarcoat that, but lie seems a fair characterization. This is where Hannity left it. Obama and ObamaCare came out looking bad. While it is difficult to make excuses for the president, the impression ACA is also bad is flat out wrong in this case. If the couple had done its homework, it would have found a policy on the health exchange for about $7,600. (This assumes the couple does not smoke and makes too much to qualify for a subsidy.) This policy offers this family multiple advantages: — More than a 60 percent reduction in premium costs; — Coverage for all family members; — Coverage for the female’s preexisting condition; and — A cap on out-of-pocket expenses. (As noted above, the couple’s current policy carries a $2,500 per-person deductible. Under ACA, $2,500 is the maximum deductible for a family. That is a potential savings of $5,000 plus whatever it would cost them to obtain medical services for their uninsured child.) Couple 3: Background: The male is selfemployed. The insurer is swapping the couple’s existing plan for an ACAcompliant policy. The premium for their current policy is $800 a month ($9,600 annually). Their Claims: Their agent told them the replacement policy would cost 50 to 75 percent more. It will contain provisions (e.g., maternity, pediatric and prenatal care) they do not need, but must buy. The Truths: This couple could buy a comparable policy on the exchange for less than $310 a month ($3,700 a year). The savings would exceed 60 percent. Yes, the policy would cover things they do not need or want. Every policy does. A few personal observations: Hannity/Fox exploited the ignorance of people so blinded by their hatred of ObamaCare (and probably Obama), they refused to do even the most rudimentary research into their personal situation. Nonetheless, their see next page

LETTERS Ask City Council to take definitive action to save Hathaway House To The Daily Sun, I am writing to you about a concern that I feel many Lakes Region residents have, and it is the concern about the deteriorating condition of the Hathaway House in Lakeport. With the recent window and asbestos removal, the situation appears to be even grimmer than first thought. It makes many of us wonder if it is a precursor to the owner applying for a demolition permit. Yet, this house has an interesting history and is a structure that should be preserved. Its fascinating history began with the first owner, Samuel Clement Clark, who was a distinguished local lawyer. He served as a member of the state Legislature and also assistant clerk to the House of Representatives. He envisioned running for governor, however, this was never executed. The c.1870 house is thought to be one of the oldest structures in eastern Lakeport. Since the time it was built, the Hathaway House has not only been the home of distinguished individuals but also many local businesses. After staying in the family for some time after Samuel’s death, the house became a place of business, beginning with Constance and Richard St. Clair’s “Hathaway House” clothing store. Other businesses that have called the Hathaway House their home include Florence Cummins Real Estate Inc., and most recently, Star Gaze Spa and Pool. In recent years, the Hathaway House has fallen into disrepair, is currently on the real estate market, and its future is

uncertain. I recently got involved with Laconia’s Heritage Commission, and from discussions with its members, I have learned the importance of this structure. I think it has a lot of potential, and should it continue to deteriorate or be demolished, it would be a great loss to the Lakes Region. It is one of the structures that defines Laconia, and still has the potential to contribute to Laconia’s local economy as it has in the past. Nevertheless, there is a way for concerned Laconia residents to take action. The Heritage Commission has created a petition and is seeking signatures from Laconia residents who are concerned about the future of this property. The purpose of the petition is to request “immediate and definitive action to preserve the Hathaway/ Clark house” from the Laconia City Council and also to “urge Cafua Management of Dunkin’ Donuts, owners of the Hathaway House, to live up to its original agreements concerning this property.” By showing how many people in the city care about “The Pink Lady,” the petition has the potential to bring about change. Anyone who is interested in signing the petition should visit Laconia Antique Center at 601 Main Street in downtown Laconia. Those who are interested in helping save this special landmark or would like to join the Heritage Commission, contact Commission chair, Pam Clark at: Sarah Anderson Gilford

Weigh mayoral candidates against those who have already served To The Daily Sun, An open letter to Laconia voters: With all do respect to the many fine people who have served as mayor over the years I have been thinking a lot recently about the four who have served since we began electing mayors by popular vote in 1991. The list includes Paul Fitzgerald (two terms), Matt Lahey (three terms), Mark Fraser (two terms), Matt Lahey again (two more terms) and Mike Seymour (two terms). That’s a darn impressive list. They all have had their individual styles and we might not have agreed with every position they took on issues of the day but we knew they were smart, knowledgeable, capable people and we were comfortable having them at the helm. We knew they were competent to analyze any situation that arose and would help to craft a sensible, reasonable solution. And we knew that when one of us had to represent the

entire city — say at a meeting with the governor or leaders of the Legislature, they were up to the task. On Tuesday, Nov. 5 we add the next name to the list. And I ask that you think about previous mayors and weigh the two current candidates against that standard. I do not pretend that I am the most qualified person we could possibly pick. But a number of people who I would have personally have been happy to vote for were just not in a position to serve at this time and I decided to step forward. I do believe that my overall knowledge of city government, my demonstrated commitment to community service and my record of accomplishment in private business make me the most qualified person whose name will be on the ballot for mayor in 2013. And I ask for your support in my effort to “Keep Laconia Moving” in a positive direction. It would be an honor to have your vote. Ed Engler Laconia

from preceding page flagrant disregard for assessment and fact qualified them to speak with authority to a national audience. Conservatives, more than liberals, should be outraged. The picture Fox painted is of catastrophe unfolding. Perhaps it is. (The rollout can hardly reassure supporters.) Yet, an unfiltered, unquestioned presentation of ignorance and hatred as evidence strengthens no case. Specifically in this example: — We see a family explaining how ACA undermined their business when

ACA could not possibly affect that business; — We see two families complaining about increased cost when even the most rudimentary inquiry would reveal substantial savings — upward of 60 percent in both cases; and — We see three families not conveying personal stories — as Hannity asserted — but adapting and repeating what they think others have said. If Mr. Earle does not think this is lying, perhaps he could explain what is. Robert Moran Meredith

To The Daily Sun, And to the Briarcrest Estates AntiLakemont Co-op Homeowners Group: Thank you for the invitation to your meeting of Thursday, October 24 at the Briarcrest Estates Community Center — an offer I couldn’t refuse -— where you proposed to inform and discuss the matter of a petition to intervene in the litigation brought by Mark Mooney, owner of Briarcrest Estates, in Belknap County Superior Court, against Lakemont Cooperative, Inc. that wishes to purchase Briarcrest Estates. In your invitation you mention hiring attorney Philip McLaughlin to prepare and present this petition to the court, saying the overwhelming majority of the homeowners in Briarcrest Estates oppose the purchase of said park by the Lakemont Cooperative. Atty. Mclaughlin was quite precise and to the point about how this procedure (and his role in it) was to be done, explaining that the anti-co-op group would not be a party to the litigation but only wanted to “be a witness” for Mark Mooney. And from what I heard afterward, you got at least 107 other homeowners to sign your petition — assuming one vote per household. Did anyone of your group come to the Lakemont Cooperative open meeting on September 27 at the Gilford Community Church to see the ROC-NH “Pro Forma” (tentative spreadsheet) as to the financial viability of the Co-op? You would have been able to see that we have the numbers worked out to run the park in the black (at a profit) from the very first year of co-op management, progressing to after the eighth year, where rents might be held in place while still making a profit. You are welcome to the co-op’s open membership meetings to ask questions, but to vote on co-op business you must join the co-op at $25 per household, which is refundable if the co-op does not complete the purchase of the park. I would like to address the “items of discontent” or “Why We Are Against the Co-op Buying Briarcrest” sheets that you passed out at the beginning of the meeting — point by-point. It was two pages of misinformation which I strongly disagree with as a member of the co-op. One of the first things you have to do is take off a substantial percentage of your lot rent equal to the amount of profit that Mr. Mooney makes on each lot rent payment. Then you can see where we have room to manage the lot rents to pay all expenses and make a profit. Remember, no one can stay in business without making a profit, even a non-profit such as the Lakemont Cooperative. All profit monies are turned right around and put back into the park — usually into accounts for future capital projects just as any business should do.. — First point: there are two loans — one from the Community Loan Fund and one from a local bank — adding up to $10,000,000 not two $10,000,000 loans. One will mature in 30 years and the other in 40 years and at that time they will be reconstructed so as to eliminate any balloon payments.

any way legally responsible for either of these loans, in default or otherwise. Most banks would rather work with the business entity (such as Lakemont Co-op) than buy it themselves or let the loan go into default. According to the “Pro Forma” (spreadsheet) that ROC-NH has prepared in cooperation with the co-op, a default scenario is not possible. And, there are at least three local banks vying for our business for which we can negotiate the percentage rate. — Next two points: Yes, the co-op will probably hire a manager to oversee the park, office and daily operations but this person will be under direct control of the board. The salary of this person is already figured into the pro forma/spreadsheet, as are the contracts for lawn mowing, a financial manager (i.e. a CPA) and snow removal (at lower prices than Mr. Mooney is charging now). As for trash removal, Mr. Mooney has backed us into a corner by making a serious mistake this past summer on payments, but remember, all contracts can be renegotiated. Mr. Mooney has told the Lakemont Co-op that expenses for snow plowing and lawn mowing are approximately $60,000 per year each or about $5,000 per month for 12 months or about $21 per household per month. — Next point: Yes the board positions are voluntary and non-paid. The present board members are “interim” board members until the co-op buys the park. A new board will be elected after the purchase of the park, then the interim board members can run again for the new board if they so desire. The new board will probably will have a one-year term limits which is the usual amount of time that board members serve in almost all businesses. These people on the interim board are exceptional people and have been doing an exceptional job for the co-op’s due diligence part of the purchase and sales agreement. They have also signed a Board of Directors Code of Ethics. We have 241 homes in this park and at an average of 1.5 people per household (and probably more), that means we have 361 people that would probably be able to be on the board’s various positions. Can they be impartial and unbiased? Yes, when it comes to running the park for the good of all the tenants. The idea of a board running a business is very old and has worked more than it has not worked. Everyone of us has worked for a business and/or owned a business and that includes those of you who were stayat-home Moms, so we all have something special to contribute. — Next point: The majority rules! Fifty-one percent of the membership is need for a vote to pass in the co-op after the purchase of the park. The EXCEPTION being in the Pre-Acquisition Phase — then “one-third of the entire membership shall constitute a quorum at a membership meeting” (quoting Co-op Pre-Acquisition Bylaws). — Next point: Not enough money? The reason you make a profit every year is to build up a fund to cover any unforeseen contingencies: lower

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, November 1, 2013— Page 7

see ABORTION page 2 made an emergency appeal to the conservative 5th Circuit, arguing that the law requiring doctors to have admitting privileges is a constitutional use of the Legislature’s authority. “This unanimous decision is a vindication of the careful deliberation by the Texas Legislature to craft a law to protect the health and safety of Texas women,” Abbott, a Republican who is running for governor, said in a written statement. Lawyers for Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers had argued that the regulations do not protect women and would shut down a third of the 32 abortion clinics in Texas. In a statement Thursday, Planned Parenthood said the appeals court decision means “abortion will no longer be available in vast stretches of Texas.” “This fight is far from over,” Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards said in the statement. “This restriction clearly violates Texas women’s constitutional rights by drastically reducing access to safe and legal abortion statewide The court’s order is temporary until it can hold a complete hearing, likely in January. The restrictions are among the toughest in the nation and gained notoriety when Democratic state Sen. Wendy Davis launched a nearly 13-hour filibuster against them in June. Davis has since launched her own gubernatorial campaign and could face Abbott in the November 2014 election. Republican Gov. Rick Perry has said he will not seek another term. The law that the Legislature passed this summer also bans abortions at 20 weeks of pregnancy and beginning in October 2014 requires doctors to perform all abortions in surgical facilities. Officials for one chain of abortion clinics testified in the trial that Yeakel oversaw that they’ve tried to obtain admitting privileges for their doctors at 32 hospitals, but so far only 15 accepted applications and none have announced a decision. Many hospitals with religious affiliations will not allow abortion doctors to work there, while others fear protests if they provide privileges. Many have requirements that doctors live within a certain radius of the facility, or perform a minimum number of surgeries a year that must be performed in a hospital. from preceding page rental income, unexpected infrastructure problems, etc. This scenario was also built into the pro forma/ spreadsheet. — Next point: ROC-NH will probably come to the first few board meetings to make sure the co-op is on the right track, but then unless requested by the board, they will not come. They will be paid a consultation fee which was built into the pro forma/ spreadsheet. — Next point: Membership fees. A membership fee has been discussed but no amount has been set. If a membership fee is to be required of all homeowners, it could be paid in a lump sum or in installments (as yet to be determined). This scenario probably will not happen until after the purchase of the park by the co-op, if at all.. — Next point: Monthly expenses AND emergency infrastructure expenses. I have answered this in previous points. A certain amount of each lot rent every month goes into a capital reserve fund (a “rainy day” fund). This is built into the pro forma/spreadsheet. I’ll stop here and write another letter referring to your second page of misinformation on Hometown America. Yes, it is a shame that this issue has divided the residents of Briarcrest Estates because to my mind the best way to go is with the co-op — we are your neighbors, we have the expertise or can get outside local help to manage the park the way it has been run for many years giving you the quality and continuity of management you want. The fear tactics and and lies have not come from the co-op members — all you have to do is read NH RSA 205-A to learn what a park owner can and can not do, as in giving 60-day notice for rent increases, 18-month expulsion notice, etc — just about every scenario is covered by this law. Dont forget this is my home and my future, too. Louise Rosand Briarcrest Estates Laconia

LETTERS People losing their health insurance, their doctors & their hospitals To The Daily Sun, The recourse of people without facts or principles is to make false charges, often calling opponents liars and users of hate speech. An example is Denise Doyle’s letter of October 29. Ms. Doyle’s letter was published just after NBC documented (and Marilyn Tavenner, the head of federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, confirmed ( that since July 2010, President Obama has been falsely claiming “If (you) already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance.” (See: http:// July, 2010 administration documentation indicates that new Obamacare regulations and requirements will force insurance companies to cancel as many as 12 million policies that individual purchasers choose today. Replacement insurance policies usually cost hundreds of dollars more per month for what many people consider worse insurance, e.g., current deductibles of around $1,500-3,500 generally increase to $5,000 for individuals and $10,000 for families. Sue Klinkhamer, a former Democrat Congressman’s staffer and Obamacare defender, reports that her insurance is increasing from $291 to $647.21 a month for a comparable policy. (See: Most Obamacare promises were false or broken. People are losing their insurance policies, their doctors, and even coverage at their local hospitals. Insurance premiums will increase, often significantly, in all but a few states. Obamacare’s cost has tripled. Only a few thousand people came forward claiming they couldn’t

get insurance because of pre-existing conditions, and Obamacare will only insure about 1/3 of those without health insurance (while many others will lose their current insurance). Regarding the government shutdown, Republicans passed bills that funded all of government with very minor Obamacare changes. Democrats closed down the government to protect President Obama’s ability to change Obamacare for political reasons, including providing a taxpayer subsidy for Congress’s health insurance, contrary to the Obamacare law, so that Congress could avoid the hardships suffered by other Obamacare users. After listening to speeches by Senators Lee and Cruz; Congressmen Ryan, West, and Bachmann; Dr. Ben Carson, and talk-show-hosts Mark Levin and Glenn Beck, I understand why Ms. Doyle provided no examples of lies or hate speech at the Voter Values Summit, there aren’t any. For intentional misrepresentations and hate speech look at Ms. Doyle’s letter. The Value Voters Summit speeches primarily discussed values, ideas and principles, e.g., fiscally responsible government and equal opportunities for all. Listen for yourself: It is impossible to rationally and honestly defend the disaster that President Obama and the Democrat Party have created. Thus radical leftists like Denise Doyle try to deflect accurate criticism by making false claims about critics and repeating them endlessly in hope that their charges will hide the truth and overwhelm people’s accurate observations.

I had state of the art joint replacement done right here at LRGH To The Daily Sun, Many of the readers know me as an orthopedic surgeon here in our community for the last 28 years. Recently, I had the opportunity to see how it is from the other side of the knife. I needed to have a total hip replacement done. I could have gone anywhere to have my surgery but I felt the most confident with the professional people I work with everyday right at LRGH. I knew that there was no better choice for my surgeon than Dr. Jeremy Hogan at our office. The technique he brought to our community of the anterior approach to the hip was one I had learned 30 years earlier as a resident and knew it had advantages. Coupling that with the Mako robotic system to help assure accurate cup placement seemed to be the ideal to me. My surgery and aftercare at LRGH was fantastic. I have had many patients of mine tell me that they had much better care here than they had previously at big fancy Boston medical centers. I now firmly agree. They never saw their surgeon after the surgery, we see our patients twice a day. Dr. Richard Hughes, my friend and colleague, did the anesthesia for me and all I can say is that he did a great job! Through the wonders of pharmacological amnesia, I really don’t remember much from the pre-op time

his epidural block and Dr. Hogan’s use of a great new injectable long-acting local anesthetic I had almost no pain for the first 3 days after surgery. I was able to be up with crutches walking the floor the day after my surgery and able to go home on the second day using only a cane. All the staff on South 3 were fantastic! I have always felt that my patients get superb care there and this only confirmed it. Malou, Kristy and all the other nurses, aides, dietary aides, and therapists were great. The large private room (all the rooms on South 3 are now private) was very comfortable and I thought the food was very good also. I am now driving, walking with or without a cane, going to outpatient PT and exercising on a bike today... two weeks past my operation. Certainly, not everyone may have as smooth a journey as I have had but you should know that state of the art joint replacement is HERE at our local hospital! Since I now have had a Mako partial knee replacement and a Mako hip replacement within the last nine months, I’m like that old commercial “I’m not just the president of the Hair Club for Men, I’m a member too!” I’m looking forward to being back caring for my friends and patients soon.

Football players hope Belmont will have co-op team by time they get to high school By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

BELMONT — The Friends of Belmont Football, a group of parents who joined together two years ago in an effort to find a way for their sons to be able to play football at the high school level, are stepping up to the plate in an effort to make that happen. Boys from Belmont are able to play in the Gilford Youth Football league, as well as Laconia Youth Football, but are without a team when they reach high school. ‘’We’re concentrating on it. We’re out raising money so that we can fund our portion of the program in a cooperative football team,’’ says Eric Shirley, who is the president of the non-profit organization which has been formed to support that effort. He said that the group is in ‘’a full fundraising mode’’ and is planning to sell Christmas trees at the Gates Farm on Rte. 106 and will hold 50-50 raffles and sell calendars. It has applied for a non-profit status with the IRS, a status which it hopes it will soon achieve. Shirley said that donations are being sought from businesses and individuals and that one fundraiser is already underway at the Belmont Village Store, where proceeds from the

already active in youth football programs in other communities and we feel an obligation to get them a place

to play,’’ says Shirley. The group has met with the Shaker School Board, which has undertaken discussions with the Gilford School Board about a joint effort, and Shirley says that in order for that to be considered the Friends group will have to demonstrate that it is financially viable. Shirley, who grew up in Lynn, Mass. and played football in college, credits the sport and his coaches for helping shape his character. Now, as a father and state trooper, he sees football as a positive outlet for boys, a way for them to expend the energy and aggression that marks teenage years. “That needs to be channeled in productive ways.” His son, Nate, 11, plays in the Gilford Youth Football League, one of about a half dozen Belmont students playing for Gilford’s Snowbelt League team. Shirley said his son loves football and wants to play able to play it alt the high school level. But that’s years away and there’s a more urgent matter for the group, finding a high school that will form a cooperative team with Belmont High School which will allow a number of talented eighth graders currently playing for the Gilford Silver Hawks to continue to play football. ‘’We want to find a way to make it see next page

Woman accused of cutting man & smashing his car window LACONIA — City police arrested a Court Street woman yesterday morning for allegedly cutting a man with a steak knife and using a rock to smash his car window. Police said Myranda Clifton, 29, of 240 Court St. was charged with one count of second-degree assault

and one count of criminal mischief. Clifton was held on initially held on $2,000 cash bail and was able to post it yesterday afternoon. Police said the male victim sustained a minor cut on one of his arms and his car window was smashed.

MAYOR from page 2 part of a criminal investigation involving an associate, adding: “That’s all I can say right now.” Toronto police discovered the video while conducting a huge surveillance operation into a friend and sometimes driver suspected of providing Ford with drugs. Ford faced allegations in May that he had been caught on video puffing from a glass crack pipe. Two reporters with the Toronto Star said they saw the video, but it has not been released publicly. Ford maintained he does not smoke crack and that the video did not exist. The scandal has been the fodder of jokes on U.S. late night television and has cast Canada’s largest city and financial capital in an unflattering light. Ford was elected mayor three years ago on a wave of discontent simmering in the city’s outlying suburbs. Since then he has survived an attempt to remove him from office on conflict-of-interest charges and has appeared in the news for his increasingly odd behav-

ior. Through it all, the mayor has repeatedly refused to resign and pledged to run for re-election next year. But the pressure ramped up on Thursday with all four major dailies in the city calling on Ford to resign. Cheri DiNovo, a member of Ontario’s parliament, tweeted: “Ford video nothing to celebrate Addiction is illness. Mayor please step down and get help?” On Thursday, Blair said the video of the mayor “depicts images that are consistent with those previously reported in the press.” “As a citizen of Toronto I’m disappointed,” Blair said. “This is a traumatic issue for citizens of this city and the reputation of this city.” Blair said the video will come out when Ford’s associate and occasional driver, Alexander Lisi, goes to trial on drug charges. Lisi now also faces extortion charges for trying to retrieve the recording from an unidentified person. Blair did not say who owned the computer containing the video.

Forgione says that for years the Gilford and Shaker school districts have fielded a cooperative Belmont-Gilford ice hockey team that plays out of the Laconia Ice Arena. ‘’That’s our model and we’ll work with any school district that will work with us to make it happen,’’ says Forgione. ‘’We’re pretty passionate about it and at this point we want to make more people aware of what we’re hoping to achieve.’’ Forgione’s son, Mark, an eighth grader who is in his first year of playing football, says ‘’It’s nothing like I’ve ever done before.

ence and I don’t want to see all the talent we have on this team to go to waste.’’ Another who could find himself without a place to play next year is 14-year-old Brandon Scheffer, who last year played on Gilford’s undefeated team which won the championship by a 48-0 score and which this year has a 7-1 record and will host Kearsarge Saturday morning at 9 in championship semifinal game. Scheffer, a defensive end and an offensive tackle, says ‘’I don’t really care where we go. I just really enjoy playing football and want to continue.’’ Inter-Lakes High School in Meredith and Moultonborough Academy currently have the only cooperative high school football team in the Lakes Region.

Belmont widow receives husband’s Korean War medals By Gail OBer


BELMONT — When Betty’s Brown uncle passed away in September, she thought a cedar shadow box commemorating his military service would help ease the pain felt by her grieving aunt Grace Brooks. With his burial flag in hand, Brown called her aunt and asked for her uncle’s service medals, but her aunt didn’t know where they were. She said all she could find was one old medal. Undeterred, Brown said she called the one person she knew could help her get Robert J. Brooks Sr.’s medals — Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter. “She’s the best person,” said Brown of Ossipee. “She knows how to get things done.” Brown’s thoughtful gift and her efforts lead to a special visit yesterday from Shea-Porter, who came to Belmont Town Hall to present Grace Brooks with the three medals earned by Robert J. Brooks Sr. while serving with the U.S. Army in the Korean War. During his service, Brooks earned the National Defense Service Medal, the Korean Service Medal, and the United Nations Medal. He also earned three battle stars during his year of active duty. Brooks returned from Korea and went to work at

the Laconia Shoe Company — where he met Grace — his bride for 56 years. “We dated for five years,” said Grace Brooks, who said her favorite memory of her husband was his fishing trips when he went in search of “Walter” — the big fish who always managed to get away. She said her late husband was a quiet but funny man who was a licensed CB operator who especially loved being outdoors. Shea Porter, who serves on the Armed Services Committee and is the daughter of a WWII veteran, said she was in Belmont to thank Grace, her husband and all of the veterans who have served in the U.S. armed forces. She said South Korea’s prosperity today can in part be credited to the sacrifices and military service of people like Grace’s late husband. In return, Grace made Shea-Porter a loaf of her home-made banana bread — one of her late husband’s favorite things to eat.

RED SOX from page 3 time the inning was over, RBI singles by Mike Napoli and Victorino had made it 6-0, and the Red Sox were on their way. “Hey, I missed two games. It’s time to shine,” Victorino said. All over New England, from Connecticut’s Housatonic River up to the Aroostook in Maine, Boston’s eighth championship can be remembered for the beard-yanking bonding. Fans bid up the average ticket price to over $1,000 on the resale market and some prime locations went for more than $10,000 each. Nearly all the Red Sox rooters stood in place for 30 minutes after the final out to view the presentation of the trophy and MVP award. A few thousand remained when a beaming Ortiz came back on the field with his son 75 minutes after the final out. “It’s so electric in here,” Napoli said. The win capped an emotional season for the Red Sox, one heavy with the memory of the events that unfolded on Patriots Day, when three people were killed and more than 260 wounded in bombing attacks at the Boston Marathon. The Red Sox wore “Boston Strong” logos on their left sleeves, erected a large emblem on the Green Monster and moved the logo into the centerfield grass as a constant reminder. “It’s hard for me to put sports over a tragedy like that,” Lackey said, “but hopefully people that were affected by it can forget about it for a few hours at least.” Red, white and blue fireworks fired over the ballpark as Commissioner Bud Selig presented the World Series trophy to Red Sox owners John Henry, Tom Werner and Larry Lucchino, leaving a haze over the field. “When the fireworks went off at the presentation of the trophy out there, when the ballpark was filled with smoke, it was completely surreal,” Farrell said. “To be in this position, given where we’ve come from, reflecting back a year ago at this time, there’s been a lot that’s happened in 13 months.” Among the players blamed for the indifferent culture at the end of the Francona years, Lackey took the mound two days shy of the second anniversary of his elbow surgery and got his first Series win since the 2002 clincher. He pitched shutout ball until Carlos Beltran’s RBI single in the seventh. St. Louis had been seeking its second title in three seasons, but the Cardinals sputtered after arriving in Boston late Tuesday following a seven-hour flight delay caused by mechanical problems. Symbolic of the team’s struggles, reliever Trevor Rosenthal tripped while throwing a pitch to Ortiz in the eighth, balking Dustin Pedroia to second. Boston was a 30-1 underdog to win the World Series last winter, but joined the 1991 Minnesota Twins as the only teams to win titles one season after finishing in last place. Now, the Red Sox will raise another championship flag before their home opener next season April 4 against Milwaukee. Gomes was looking forward to Saturday’s parade. “It’s time,” he said, “to queue the duck boats.” 1330 Union Avenue Laconia, NH 603-528-4445

Playoff round-up: LHS football needs a win and a lot of luck By Tim marTin


LHS football will need a Hail Mary if the team is to reach the NHIAA Division II Playoffs this weekend. The 3-5 Sachems will host 5-3 Milford for Senior Night tonight at Bank of New Hampshire Stadium. Last Friday Laconia traveled to Conway to take on conference foe Kennett. The Eagles shut down Laconia’s offense while taking advantage of three Sachems turnovers. With the win Kennett is in the driver’s seat for the second conference playoff spot. Laconia will need a loss from the Eagles and help from a few other teams to jump over Kennett and sneak in. Field Hockey The Sachems finished the 2013 season with a 9-5 record. The winning record was good enough for the girls to earn the 10th seed in the NHIAA Division III tournament. Laconia traveled to Tilton last week for the first round matchup against Winnisquam. The 7th seed Bears shutout Laconia 3-0. Advancing to the next round Winnisquam traveled to Gilford looking to upset the second seed last Saturday. Gilford, who did not lose in the regular season, handled Winnisquam easily to advance to the semi-finals. The Golden Eagles hosted the three seed Berlin and were defeated 2-1. Boys Soccer Laconia soccer entered the year on a positive note netting 10 goals on Mascoma Valley. The 11-5 record was good enough for the eighth seed in the NHIAA Division III tournament. After the first round bye the Sachems traveled to Kearsarge for second round action on Thursday afternoon. Gilford (13-21) earned the three seed and was also in action on Thursday playing host to Sanborn. Four seed Prospect Mountain (12-2-2) welcomed 13 seed Belmont to round out the Thursday action. Girls soccer Laconia’s girls failed to make the tournament, having won only two games on the season. Belmont (13-2-1) earned the second seed in postseason play,

Prospect Mountain ends Inter-Lakes girls’ historic soccer season Inter-Lakes girls varsity soccer couldn’t get fully warmed up in Wednesday’s cold weather preliminary game on their home turf. Although Caitlin Rotonnelli was able to capitalize with the game’s first goal from a Natalie Johnson assist, Prospect Mountains #22 was able to squeeze through the

defense for a goal in each half for a 2-1 win for the visitors. Freshman goalie Kenzi Giroux laid out for a couple fantastic saves to keep the Lakers in the game. Inter-lakes ended the season 12-4 allowing them the team its first home field post season game in the school’s history.

Waukewan Ladies League donates $1,000 to AHA CENTER HARBOR — On October 1, Waukewan Ladies Golf League presented a check to Cheryl Andrews, the New Hampshire representative for the Go Red for Women movement of the American Heart Association. The Ladies League had sponsored their 40th Annual Golf Invitational in September and had themed it Heart of a Woman in honor of this charity. Traditionally, the league selects a charitable organization to share in the seasonal profits. This year the League voted to donate $1,000 to New Hampshire’s Go Red for Women.

Gilman Library to host talk on Comet ISON on Tuesday ALTON — A program on the Comet ISON will be offered at the Gilman Library on Tuesday, November 5 at 7 p.m. Comet ISON, C/2012 S1 (ISON), should be clearly naked eye visible in New Hampshire by early November. Since mid-September amateur astronomers worldwide have been eagerly studying it with medium-power telescopes. Based on what they are from preceding page hosting Gilford on Wednesday afternoon. Belmont avoided the upset scoring the lone goal late in the second half to advance to the quarter-finals. Belmont will host Campbell on Saturday at 2 p.m. Volleyball The Sachems fought their way to the 10 seed in the NHIAA Division II postseason with a 6-10 record. They traveled to Somersworth on Wednesday afternoon where they were eliminated 3-0 in first round action. The 13-3 Gilford Golden Eagles earned a first round bye and will host Milford on Saturday at 6 p.m. in the quarter-finals.

seeing, this comet, hailed as being ‘special’ when discovered in 2012, should definitely be conspicuous in the night sky during November. It is likely to be the most memorable comet seen in New Hampshire since Hale Bopp in 1997. Towards Thanksgiving, ISON, which will ‘graze’ the surface of the Sun, might even be daylight visible. There are five different scenarios to what can then happen as the Comet rounds the Sun. If it survives even partly intact it could be a tantalizing sight around Christmas. A Holiday Comet. It will be the ‘Comet of 2013’, possibly the ‘Great Comet of 2013’. It has the potential to be the ‘Comet of the Century’. The presenter, Alton-resident Anura Guruge, whose books on popes gained considerable attention during the papal transition earlier this year, has written and published three books on Comet ISON, in print and in 99 cent eBook form, in addition to another book on comets: ‘Comets: 101 Facts & Trivia’. His main ISON book, already, at various times, has reached Amazon’s #1 spot for books on ‘Comets, Meteors & Asteroids’. Admission is free. All are welcome.

ARSON from page one At least three representatives from the N.H. Fire Marshal’s Office and Laconia Fire Chief Ken Erickson and Deputy Charlie Boffo were at Pitman’s yesterday morning. The calls came in to Lakes Region Mutual Fire Aid and were reported as two building fires burning at the same time — one on Water Street and one on New Salem Street. Red smoke could be seen billowing from the area as city police cruisers crawled slowly around the nearby streets and neighborhoods looking for anyone who may have seen or heard anything out of the ordinary. Firefighters from Laconia, Gilford, Belmont worked for about an hour to extinguish the fires in what seemed to be an otherwise vacant city. Erickson said yesterday that the smoke was so thick when the first firefighters arrived at Pitman’s, the lieutenant in charged was barely able to see the building. He also said the smoke alarms didn’t sound. The fire was reported by a passerby. Firefighters quickly knocked down the flames that charred the porch on the railroad tracks side of the building – away from the street — and shot up through the heating system, that had just been replaced because of the September fire. This time, the fire burned through a corner of an attached building owned by David Gammon, and Sheila and Steve Bartlett. The September fire didn’t reach that building. Erickson said the September fire set off the smoke alarms that alerted firefighters who were nearby because they were returning from a different calls. Last night, firefighters responded initially from the main, North Main Street, station. Gammon, a former city councilor, said yesterday that he has no idea what’s going on but said having someone apparently running around the city setting fires is very unsettling. He said the only hidden place around Pitman’s and the adjacent antique shop run by his sister is the back porch where both of the fires have been started. He also said that as far as his building is concerned, he knows it’s going to get somewhat wet during the rain but said he will have to replace the corner of the

roof and the flashing around the chimney. Erickson estimated the damage done to both buildings at around $30,000. Councilor Matt Lahey also went to see the damage yesterday and called the fires “disconcerting.” Counting the fires last night, there has been four multi-alarm fires in the city — starting with the September 22 three-alarm blaze that gutted the commercial building on the corner of Fair and Court Streets. A second fire during the same time charred a garage on Bay Street. The next weekend a two-alarm blaze destroyed the former motel of the Christmas Island Steak House that had been slated for demolition. The same weekend, Pitman’s Freight Room burned the first time and three other smaller suspicious fires were extinguished around the Water Street area. Police Capt. Bill Clary is leading the city’s investigation. “We are obviously seeking the public’s help,” Clary said yesterday afternoon. “This is is priority for us right now and we’re committing lots of resources to it.” “We’re hoping we can find anyone who saw anything or anyone before or after any one of these fires,” he said. He said there’s is a lot of different psychology regarding arson and said all angles are being actively investigated. He noted that spite, thrills, and financial gain are all motives for arson but declined to comment specifically about any of the recent fires. Clary said there is up to a $1,000 reward for arrests and convictions that come from the Greater Laconia Crime Line at 524-1717 which is anonymous. Police can also be reached by calling 524-5252 or by going to and clicking on the anonymous tip icon.

Name tells you right where to find new 405 Pub & Grill on Union Ave. in Laconia LACONIA — Dave Henrick and Yvette Imhof made their entree into the restaurant industry about two years ago, moving into a vacated doughnut shop on upper Union Avenue and opening Lakeside Famous Roast Beef. On a strip of road heavily settled with pizza, burger and sub shops, Lakeside made itself known among casual diners and lunch-on-the-run types as the place to go for a satisfying, comforting bite and personable service. This week, Imhof and Henrick are lifting the curtain on their second act, the 405 Pub & Grill, located about a mile and a half down Union Avenue (#405) from Lakeside. Like Lakeside, the 405 Pub & Grill is taking residence in a building that has sat vacant for several years. And, like at their first restaurant, the food at the 405 will bear the trademarks that Imhof and Henrick pride themselves on: a from-scratch menu where every dish is created using top-quality ingredients. Henrick’s personal recipe for marinara will again be employed, as will Imhof’s Alfredo sauce and clam chowder. However, for the 405, they’ve brought in a new expert member of the team, James Bennett, whose credentials include a degree from the Culinary Institute of America and decades of experience. The 405 opened earlier this week with a limited menu, the full range of dishes will be available by the weekend. “We do scratch only, everything from scratch,” pledged Bennett. “We’re all about New American and pub fare, great dishes using local ingredients and fresh seafood.”

With a bar area featuring several large-screen televisions, the menu offers wings, nachos and onion rings for those interested in watching a ball game. Yet, there’s also two dining rooms, and for patrons more at home at one of those tables, there will be steak tips, pasta dishes, seafood and, on Fridays and Saturdays, prime rib available in either 14 or 22 ounce cuts. Bridging the gap between those ends of the spectrum are burgers, sandwiches, salads and pizzas. In addition to the regular menu, Bennett plans to concoct changing specials that highlight the best of what the season has to offer. As much effort that has gone into the menu, an equal amount went into the interior design of the restaurant. Henrick and Imhof spent many late nights at the 405, working after closing the Lakeside, to help give the space a complete, top-to-bottom modernization. Much of the labor was provided by their hands, though they also engaged the services of Bruce Stone of Daily Wood Concepts for the finer details. “We had to gut it,” said Henrick, though he took care to salvage a few elements from previous inhabitants of the space, such as mirrored glass, a two-way service door, a brass rail on the bar.. With the success of Lakeside, Imhof and Henrick could have chosen to relax while the pizza and roast beef profits accumulated. However, that’s just not their style. “I always thought that Laconia would be a great place to have a great local pub and grill, that had a nice, comfortable feel to it,” said Henrick. “We chose to take on this project and reinvest in the community.” At the 405, he said, “You’ll have great comfort food here along with great service.” The 405 Pub & Grill is open for lunch and dinner, every day of the year. — Adam Drapcho

WOLFEBORO — The Lakes Region Energy Expo: $ensible Answers to Your Energy Questions, will be held on Saturday, November 2 at Kingswood Regional High School from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.. It is free and open to the public. The day long event will include workshops by some of the Northeast’s leading experts on energy efficiency and renewables; tours of local energy efficient and solar homes and businesses; and a marketplace of products and services. Exhibitors and workshops will help attendees learn a wide range of energy saving strategies including insulating and sealing homes, the myths and marketing hype around windows, and a close-up look at renewable energy options like solar hot water and electricity. The “Stump the Chump” workshop provides an opportunity for people to ask the experts your specific energy questions. The complete schedule for the Expo can be downloaded at . The original Lakes Region Energy Expo held in 2008 was a huge success attracting more than 400 attendees from throughout the State. “We’ve had requests for years to put on another Expo so we made it a priority for 2013”, says Susan Fuller of the Wolfeboro Energy Committee and Chair of the event. “Energy continues to be a significant portion of the family budget” says State Senator Jeb Bradley. “The Lakes Region Energy Expo provides the tools and information to help you save energy and money.”

The price of heating oil is higher today than it was in 2008 when the first Energy Expo was held. “In the past decade heating and cooling system technologies have been transformed allowing us to build more comfortable, energy efficient homes that save the homeowner money” says Gordon Cormack of Cormack Construction Management, an event sponsor. “Investing in energy efficiency pays back in multiple ways,” says Jim Schwartzkopf, Vice President of North Branch Construction and Project Manager of the current construction at the Wolfeboro First Congregational Church. “Lower energy bills, greater comfort, smaller environmental footprint and higher value at re-sale are all reasons our customers are asking us for the most energy efficient buildings.” This year the Expo will also be colocated with a special harvest farmers market so attendees can purchase locally produced vegetables, meats and baked goods as well. Refreshments and lunch will be available to purchase from Slow Food of Carroll County and Tumbledown Farm. The Expo is presented by the Town of Wolfeboro Energy Committee in partnership with the Wentworth Economic Development Corporation (WEDCO). Thanks to the generosity of sponsors including North Branch Construction, Cormack Construction Management, Meredith Village Savings Bank, Wolfeboro Oil Company, Wood & Clay, Inc., NH Electric Co-op, Frase Electric and SunRay Solar the Expo is free for all attendees.

CONCORD — Opening day for New Hampshire’s regular firearms deer season is November 13, a date anticipated with great enthusiasm by the state’s 60,000 deer hunters. The season runs through December 8 in most of the state, except in Wildlife Management Unit (WMU) A in northern New Hampshire, where it closes December 1 (changes in season length remain in place in Wildlife Management Unit A as part of an effort to improve the buck age-structure of the northern deer herd). The state’s popular muzzleloader deer season gets underway on November 2 statewide and runs through November 12. “For many New Englanders, the firearms deer season is a traditional opportunity to get together with family and friends, enjoy our bountiful resources and put meat in the freezer before winter,” said Kent Gustafson, Wildlife Programs Supervisor for the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department. New Hampshire’s archery deer season began September 15. As of October 20, a total of 2,518 deer had see next page

from preceding page been taken by archers, an increase of 30% over the 2012 total at this point in the season. According to Fish and Game Deer Project Leader Dan Bergeron, the harvest remains up significantly from 2009 and 2010, when the September archery season was bucks only, and is the highest in the last nine years. Reported registrations in most counties have increased toward or surpassed 2007 levels, when the state’s second highest total deer kill occurred. “The increase at this point in the season is likely the result of the mild winter in 2012-13 and favorable hunting conditions,” said Bergeron. “The increased deer kill is likely to continue throughout the archery, youth, muz-

zleloader and regular firearm seasons as a result of higher deer survival and recruitment following two of the mildest winters on record during 2011-12 and 2012-13. Food abundance seems to be average this fall, with reports of certain crops being locally abundant.” Hunters with full freezers are reminded that the New Hampshire Food Bank is seeking donations of whole or processed deer. This venison provides a valuable source of meat for food banks around the state. For more information, call the food bank at 603669-9725 x240 or visit http://www. The New Horizons Food Bank in Manchester also accepts game donations to help feed the hungry. To donate game meat to New Horizons, call 603-628-6133, x114.

Her book is an attempt to remember each of the NH men as well as capture the essence of the person behind the military rank. Fogg emphasizes in her introduction that the book is meant to allow each man an opportunity to share his life once again, a life he sacrificed in the pursuit of liberty for his fellow man.

PLYMOUTH — The Silver Series at Plymouth State University will present the Paul Taylor 2 Dance Company on Saturday, November 2 at 8 p.m. in the Hanaway Theatre at the Silver Center for the Arts. horeographer Paul Taylor is the last living member of the pantheon that created America’s indigenous art of modern dance. At an age when most artist’s work is behind them, Taylor continues to win public and critical acclaim for vibrancy, relevance and power of his creations. He created Taylor 2 twenty years ago to bring his vision into communities all over the world. Taylor offers cogent observations on life’s complexities while tackling some of society’s thorniest issues. He may propel his dancers through space for the sheer beauty of the movement, but more frequently he uses them to illuminate such profound issues as war, piety, spirituality, sexuality, morality and mortality. While his work has been iconic, he has also made some of the most purely romantic, most astonishingly athletic and downright funniest dances ever put on stage. In selecting repertoire for Taylor 2, Taylor chooses dances that span the broad spectrum of his work. Several of the dances performed by Taylor 2 have been reworked from the Paul Taylor Dance Company’s version to enable the smaller ensemble of dancers to perform them. Critics and audiences cheer as Taylor 2 introduces the athleticism, humor and range of emotions known to Taylor’s work. Taylor 2 has toured in the U.S. and internationally and has done extensive residences in Albany, Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, St. Louis and San Francisco. Tickets for Paul Taylor 2 at the Silver Center are $35-30 for adults, $33-28 for seniors and $20-15 for youth at the Silver Center Box Office, (603) 5352787 or (800) 779-3869. Tickets are also available online at

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis

cally trying to fit it all in. Rushed people do dangerous things such as eating or driving too fast. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If you decide that it’s really time to find a new routine to help you deal with everyday challenges (because the old one is causing you more harm than good), the planets will support your search for a new way. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Success might be temporarily threatened, and this is just the challenge that is needed to strengthen your resolve for long-term victory. Hard-won battles are always more fun anyway. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 1). You’ll answer a strange calling this month and land in a lucky spot. You’ll do well in a December competition. Funding for a creative or religious project will come through in January. You’ll exchange promises with someone special or sign a big contract in February. Your home gets a makeover in the last part of 2014. Pisces and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 49, 27, 35 and 46.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You think you know a person well, and then you get surprised again. Fresh interest ignites in you. This is part of the joy of socializing. Adjust your expectations accordingly. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). As the sign that rules appetite, you sometimes wonder whether it’s possible to subdue your cravings, and if so, how? The key is in finding the right alternatives. Do this and willpower will be unnecessary. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You have a talent for making up funny scenarios in your mind. This is something you might keep to yourself or translate into a bit of fiction or a journal entry. Sharing in other ways isn’t advised. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Work you do with family will benefit all, and it will be a good feeling to flourish collectively. Handle repairs while they are still manageable. If you wait, complications will arise. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). This is an excellent day for writing, designing or developing mechanical or technical skills. What you learn will stick with you and apply directly to the job you’ll do next week. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There’s nowhere you will go where you won’t run into someone you know, so look your best. You could possibly find yourself in the same room as an ex love or former boss. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your enthusiasm will lead to a sale. If you’re not selling goods and services, you’ll be selling someone on an idea or on the prospect of getting to know and like you. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Avoid a contest of wills. Back down or stay neutral. It’s true that neutrality won’t induce the same surge of excitement as victory, but it’s better than risking a terrible loss of friendship, work or love. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When confidential matters are revealed, it will be embarrassing or liberating for the one whose secret is out -- or maybe a mix of both. You’ll be sensitive and empathetic in this case. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Slow down. Take something off of the schedule completely instead of rushing around franti-

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, November 1, 2013— Page 25

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, Nov. 1, the 305th day of 2013. There are 60 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 1, 1950, two Puerto Rican nationalists tried to force their way into Blair House in Washington, D.C. to assassinate President Harry S. Truman. The attempt failed, and one of the pair was killed, along with a White House police officer. On this date: In 1512, Michelangelo finished painting the ceiling of the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel. In 1765, the Stamp Act went into effect, prompting stiff resistance from American colonists. In 1861, during the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln named Maj. Gen. George B. McClellan General-in-Chief of the Union armies, succeeding Lt. Gen. Winfield Scott. In 1870, the United States Weather Bureau made its first meteorological observations. In 1936, in a speech in Milan, Italy, Benito Mussolini described the alliance between his country and Nazi Germany as an “axis” running between Rome and Berlin. In 1944, “Harvey,” a comedy by Mary Chase about a man and his friend, an invisible six-foottall rabbit, opened on Broadway. In 1949, an Eastern Airlines DC-4 collided in midair with a Lockheed P-38 fighter plane near Washington National Airport, killing all 55 people aboard the DC-4 and seriously injuring the pilot of the P-38. In 1952, the United States exploded the first hydrogen bomb, code-named “Ivy Mike,” at Enewetak Atoll in the Marshall Islands. In 1968, the Motion Picture Association of America unveiled its new voluntary film rating system: G for general, M for mature (later changed to GP, then PG), R for restricted and X (later changed to NC-17) for adults only. In 1973, following the “Saturday Night Massacre,” Acting Attorney General Robert H. Bork appointed Leon Jaworski to be the new Watergate special prosecutor, succeeding Archibald Cox. In 1989, East Germany reopened its border with Czechoslovakia, prompting tens of thousands of refugees to flee to the West. Ten years ago: Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean stirred controversy within his party by telling the Des Moines Register he wanted to be “the candidate for guys with Confederate flags in their pickup trucks.” Five years ago: Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain plunged through the final weekend of their marathon race for the White House; McCain poked fun at his campaign’s financial shortcomings and his reputation as a political maverick in an appearance on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” One year ago: President Barack Obama returned to the campaign trail, after canceling campaign appearances to focus on Superstorm Sandy. Motorists in the New York City area and in New Jersey faced a second day of enormous lines at gas stations; many stations were still shut down in the aftermath of the storm because they didn’t have gasoline or were without power to run the pumps.

Page 26 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, November 1, 2013


Dear Annie: I am one of six boys. We are all very different. My oldest brother, “Tanner,” just turned 20. He is more of an introvert, and we realize this, but he has done nothing with his life and shows no interest in doing so. He doesn’t have a job and refuses to look for one. He also hasn’t applied for college. We’ve tried everything from coaxing and bribing to threatening, but nothing has worked. My parents are at their wits’ end. We’ve tried talking to him and asking why he has shown so little interest in anything and why he won’t even help with housework when he’s home all day. He just sits, stone-faced, and can’t provide a reason for being a freeloading slug. I am out of high school and have a part-time job. My parents both work, and so does my 16-year-old brother. Please tell me what we can do to help get this kid out into the world. -- End of the Rope Dear End: Has your brother been screened for depression? Is there a possibility of drug or alcohol use? Any of these things could be contributing to his lethargy and lack of motivation. If he is simply freeloading, the easiest way to fix that is to make him support himself and be responsible for his own living arrangements. But he sounds depressed to us. Your parents can visit for screening information. Dear Annie: I had emergency gall bladder surgery last July. Thinking it was indigestion, I ignored the symptoms until the pain became severe. Here’s what flummoxed me: While I was in the hospital, my husband called a close friend to let her know. She said she would be right over. I was in a lot of pain, had an oxygen tube in my nose and also was dozing off from the medication. She swooped in and immediately started grilling me, asking why I had oxygen, who did the surgery, and on and on. She kept

asking more probing questions until she made me uncomfortable, as if I were wrong to have had the surgery in the first place. I tried to change the subject, asking about the memorial service for a friend. My husband then made a stupid, flippant comment about open caskets, and my friend just exploded and ran out of the room. I haven’t heard from her since. We live in a small town, and whenever she sees me, she scuttles away. I sent her a note to find out what caused this rift, but she ignored it. I think she’s ashamed of her behavior, and rightly so. I’m not interested in renewing the friendship, but I am still angry at how she treated me. I wish my husband had asked her to leave the hospital when she couldn’t stop criticizing my doctor. Should I try to speak with her? -- Sadder but Wiser Behind the Redwood Curtain Dear Sadder: There are people who react poorly when confronted with a friend who is ill. Some become so distressed that they lose control of their behavior. Others need to be in charge of your care and resent learning about it secondhand, becoming irrationally angry. You are not likely to get a satisfying explanation, and she doesn’t seem willing to admit how inappropriate her behavior was. Forgive her and then move on. Dear Annie: I want to respond to “Frustrated in Louisville,” whose husband constantly interrupts her. On several occasions, I’ve been asked a question, only to have someone else answer it or interrupt my answer. When this happens, I simply say, “It’s tough being a ventriloquist, but the best part is having your dummy speak for you.” After the usual laughter, the offending person learns not to do it again. Of course, this might not be the best response to a spouse. -- Ventriloquist in Ohio

BAER from page one the mayoral debate. Baer, who is 87, said that she has undergone four surgeries in the last three years and insists while “everything is fine” concedes “it take something out of you.” Baer’s tenure on the City Council has taken her full circle, turning on her relationship with the School Board and its supporters as the city invested some $40 million in building a new middle school and making major improvements to the Huot Technical Center and Laconia High School. After losing her first bid for City Council to incumbent Jim Cowan by just 22 votes in 2003, two years later Baer was among the six candidates running in opposition to the proposed property tax cap and in support of the public schools. The slate of candidates was endorsed by “Laconians for Sensible Government,” which mounted a well financed advertising campaign on their behalf. With Cowan eliminated in the primary, Baer carried Ward 4 by 14 votes over conservative Mike Verhoeks. Baer backed construction of the new middle school in 2006, but soon displayed her independence by casting the lone vote against the budget in 2007 when she failed to persuade her colleagues to provide adequate funding for public transportation for seniors. At the same time, in a show of solidarity, she was among the five councilors seeking re-election to file together before the cameras at City Hall. Although all were re-elected, in 2008, when the School Board sought funding to rebuild the Huot Regional Technical Educaiton Center, the coun-

cil split, with Baer joining the block of four who withheld funding for the project. When she ran for reelection in 2009 she met with opposition from the same forces that carried her to office four Councilor Brenda Baer years before. (File photo) Mike Seymour and Marge Kerns, both of whom had chaired the School Board, ran for mayor and city council in Ward 1 respectively while Mayor Matt Lahey stepped down to run for the council seat in Ward 2 and Jack Terrill challenged Baer in Ward 4. Shortly after the incumbent councilors again filed for re-election en masse, Baer, in a letter to the local newspapers, warned against the move by the School Board to take over city government. “Once they get in,” she wrote, “you will never balance the budget and the school’s spending will continue to skyrocket and you will have a new high school whether you can afford it or not.” She said that she retired her debt to her former allies with the construction of the middle school. On the eve of the election Baer hosted a “Celebration of Solidarity,” excluding Kerns and Terrill from those invited. Lahey called her rally “an exclusionary and divisive sideshow” and endorsed Terrill. Baer edged Terrill by six votes to win a third term and was the lone dissenter when the council ultimately

authorized funding for the renovation and expansion of the Huot Center. When Terrill challenged her again in 2011, Baer stretched her margin of victory to 110 votes. Last year, as the council wrapped the $16.8 million financing package for the high school project by approving a borrowing of $1 million, Mayor Seymour recognized Baer, who remarked “Scrooge is up.” She recalled that the budget for the project had swelled from $10 million when the council first approved it to more than $16 million and said that she initially opposed it. However, when the district was offered an interest-free loan of $6.5 million, she voted to accept it on the understanding that the funds would be spent on the Huot Center and high school. But, she said that since some $3 million was being spent on the football field, she would vote against any further borrowing. And last week, when the School District sought the council’s approval to accept a second interest-free loan, this time of $1.28 million to install a sprinkler system and air handlers at the high school, Baer again balked. She said that there was enough money to address these and other life-safety issues, but the School Board and City Council chose to spend on the playing fields. “I’ve evolved,” Baer acknowledged, describing her time on the council as “a learning curve.” Initially opposed to the tax cap, she declared “thank God it’s been in place. It has kept us from spending beyond our means.” “I’ve always been for the schools and I’m still for the schools,” she insisted. “But, basically it’s the money thing that gets to me.”

The next to oldest of 14 children, Baer was raised in the midst of the Great Depression in Springfield, Massachusetts, where she said her father practiced law and her mother “ran back and forth to the hospital.” She recalled that her father bartered his legal services, representing clients in return for necessities. “You didn’t have anything,” she said. “But there was always plenty and what you didn’t have, you didn’t miss.” After graduating from high school at 16, Baer went through a succession of jobs before becoming a secretary at the Indian Motorcycle factory, where she worked for Fritzie Baer in sales and marketing. She married his son, Bob, whom she met after he returned from racing motorcycles in Florida. In the 1950s, Fritzie became the manager of what was then the Belknap Mountain Recreation Area and is now Gunstock. “Bob went to work with his father and we moved to Laconia,” Baer said. “I arrived on New Year’s Eve, 1956, right on the stroke of midnight.” All three of the Baers worked at Gunstock until they were let go when the resort underwent a major reorganization and restructuring in the 1960s. The Baers remained in Laconia, sending their four children through the public schools. Brenda spent 10 years at Lakes Region General Hospital and also worked at the Laconia Clinic and Franklin Regional Hospital before retiring. A three sport athlete in high school, Baer has been an avid golfer well into her 80s. Baer said that “maybe with two years to think about it, somebody will step out and run for seat.” — Michael Kitch

GYM MAT from page 2 “I am committed to doing everything in my power to answer the questions that exist in this case, or as many of them as we can,” Moore said. The 17-year-old’s body was found Jan. 11 stuck in an upright mat in the school gym after his parents reported him missing the night before. Lowndes County sheriff’s investigators concluded Johnson died in a freak accident, but his family insists that someone must have killed him. An attorney for the Johnsons applauded Moore for taking a closer look. “We have to solve this murder mystery and we think the federal government’s intervention is one step closer to solving this mystery,” said attorney Benjamin Crump. David S. Weinstein, a former federal prosecutor now in private practice in Miami, said it’s relatively unusual for federal authorities to go in and review an investigation once a local jurisdiction has closed it. Federal jurisdiction is relatively limited in a case like this, and federal authorities will only be able to open a criminal civil rights investigation if they find evidence that a law enforcement officer or someone acting as a law enforcement officer was involved in wrongdoing in the case. If they found evidence of wrongdoing by

someone outside of law enforcement, they would most likely refer it to local authorities, Weinstein said. A southern Georgia judge on Wednesday ordered authorities to release all surveillance video that investigators reviewed. Johnson’s father said after that ruling that he hoped the footage would contain clues about how he died. Sheriff Chris Prine had previously released surveillance footage that showed Johnson entering the school gym the afternoon before his body was found. No one appeared to follow him inside. Johnson’s parents wanted to see video from the gym from the hours before their son entered until his body was discovered the next day. The sheriff had declined to release the footage without a court order because it shows other minor students who could be identified. Johnson’s body was found stuck upside down in the middle of a wrestling mat that had been rolled up and propped upright behind bleachers. The sheriff has said he suspects Johnson became trapped trying to retrieve a shoe that fell into the center of the large, rolled mat. A Georgia Bureau of Investigation medical examiner concluded that he died from positional asphyxia, meaning his body got stuck in a position in which he couldn’t breathe.

Hallmark sweater ornament draws controversy KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Greeting card giant Hallmark said Thursday that it shouldn’t have changed the lyrics to “Deck the Halls” on a new holiday ornament that stirred a backlash from customers online. The Kansas City, Mo.-based company has been defending itself after it began selling a miniaturized version of a tacky holiday sweater that changes the lyrics to the holiday carol. The ornament removes the word “gay” and emblazons the sweater with the phrase: “Don we now our FUN apparel!” Critics took to Twitter and Hallmark’s Facebook page, accusing the company of making a political statement by using the word “fun” to replace “gay.” Some Facebook commenters said they would never again buy Hallmark merchandise and that the change amounted to the company rewriting Christ-

mas classics in the name of political correctness. Others suggested removing the word “gay” demonstrated a homophobic bias. The company initially responded by saying the multiple meanings attached to the word “gay” meant the sweater’s lyrics would be “open to misinterpretation.” “The trend of wearing festively decorated Christmas sweaters to parties is all about fun, and this ornament is intended to play into that, so the planning team decided to say what we meant: ‘fun.’ That’s the spirit we intended and the spirit in which we hope ornament buyers will take it.” The company updated its statement Thursday, saying it was surprised by the public’s response and that it now realized it shouldn’t have changed the lyrics.
