2nd fire in hours destroys Alton home

ALTON — A family of three is homeless after a fire destroyed their home at 1301 Mount Major Highway early Wednesday morning. Fire Chief Scott Williams said there were two fires in the home early in the morning. He said firefighters were called to the home at 12:28 a.m. for what Williams described as a mattress fire in one of the bedrooms. He said the male resident of the house was watching television and his wife was in the bedroom when she started screaming, “Fire.” see firE page 22

Cafua submits formal application to raze Hathaway House By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Cafua Management Company, LLC, the Dunkin’ Donuts franchise holder that owns the historic Hathaway House at 1106 Union Avenue, yesterday formally applied for a demolition

permit to raze the historic Victorian mansion. “It doesn’t surprise me,” said Pam Clark who chairs the Heritage Commission, which has led an effort to preserve the building. Greg Nolan, director of development at Cafua, began distributing applications to the

appropriate city departments in September. The process requires applications, which can be downloaded from the city website, to be signed by officials of the Department of Public Works, Water Department, Fire Department and Planning Department as well

as the gas and electric utilities servicing the property then submitted to the Code Enforcement officer. Since the Hathaway House is more than 700-square-feet in area and 75 or more years old, as well as visible from a public see HaTHaWay page 23

Holiday shopping season now begins on Thanksgiving

NEW YORK (AP) — Stores are hoping holiday shoppers will gobble their turkey on Thanksgiving afternoon, but save the pumpkin pie for later. As more than a dozen major retailers from Target to Toys R Us open on Thanksgiving Day, shoppers across the country are expected to get a jump start on holiday shopping. The Thanksgiving openings come despite planned protests across the country from workers’ groups that are against employees missing Thanksgiving meals at home. The holiday openings are a break with tradition. The day after Thanksgiving, called Black Friday, for a decade had been considered the official start to the holiday buying season. It’s also typically the biggest shopping day of the year. But in the past few years, retailers have pushed opening times into Thanksgiving night. They’ve also pushed up discounting that used to be reserved for Black Friday into see SHOPPING page 23

Rochester man who killed parents as a teen up for parole CONCORD (AP) — Jeffrey Dingman was barely 14 when he and his older brother, Robert, killed their parents in Rochester in 1996. Now 31, he is eligible for parole after spending more than half his life behind bars. The brothers fatally shot their parents, Eve and Vance, as they arrived home from work on a Friday afternoon in February, wrapped the bodies in garbage bags and hid them in the attic and basement. The teens played and partied over the week-

end, returned to school Monday and were arrested after their parents’ worried coworkers called police. Robert Dingman, 17 at the time, is serving a life sentence after being convicted of first-degree murder and conspiracy charges. Jeffrey, who had turned 14 just two weeks before the Feb. 9 killings, got 30 years to life in a plea deal and has a parole hearing scheduled for next week. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer, but his former attorney, Philip McLaughlin, said

Tuesday he remembers Jeffrey as a “little boy” who appeared to have no appreciation of the gravity of what had occurred. He has not seen or heard from Jeffrey since the day he told him he could no longer represent him because he was being named attorney general, and his previously-stoic client cried and clung to him. “I think of a very, very slight boy who was effectively abandoned by everyone. I don’t think he had any visitors at all while see PAROLE page 11

INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — A gunman who fired several shots at a pair of Southern California police officers, hitting one, and held two people hostage for nearly nine hours was booked Thursday on suspicion of attempted murder, a sheriff’s official said. Christopher Warsaw, 45, was being held on $1 million bail, said Los Angeles County sheriff’s Deputy Guillermina Saldana. It was not immediately clear if Warsaw

had an attorney and he had not made an initial court appearance. Warsaw was arrested late Wednesday after engaging police in a nearly nine-hour standoff after taking his girlfriend and her 14-year-old daughter hostage, authorities said. He fired at officers who responded to a family disturbance call from the home that came at 12:30 p.m. The worst injury occurred when an Inglewood policeman was shot in his bul-

letproof vest. He was taken to a hospital in good condition but “in a lot of pain,” police Capt. James D. Madia said. He suffered blunt force injuries and spent Wednesday night in the hospital as a precaution but could be released Thursday, police said. The second officer was not hit but was hurt when she fell down in the chaos that followed, Madia said. She was treated at a see GUNMAN page 22

BAGHDAD (AP) — Three car bombs exploded at outdoor markets and on a street full of shops near Iraq’s capital, the deadliest of a series of attacks across the country that killed at least 29 people Thursday, officials said. The deadliest attack took place Thursday afternoon in the city of Hillah when

three separate car bombing struck two outdoor markets and a line of shops, killing nine people and wounding 21, police said. Authorities said that all the blasts happened in a five-minute period. Hillah is about 60 miles (95 kilometers) south of Baghdad. That night, police said a car bombing

killed seven people and wounded 12 in the southern city of Najaf, about 160 kilometers (100 miles) south of Baghdad. In the town of Suwayrah, 40 kilometers (25 miles) south of Baghdad, a car bomb ripped through a commercial area, killing five civilians and wounding 14, a police officer said. see IRAQ page 12

Pat Buchanan

Let Obama play the Iran hand When, after the massacres at Newtown and the Washington Navy Yard, Republicans refused to outlaw the AR-15 rifle or require background checks for gun purchasers, we were told the party had committed suicide by defying 90 percent of the nation. When Republicans rejected amnesty and a path to citizenship for illegal aliens, we were told the GOP had just forfeited its future. When House Republicans refused to fund Obamacare, the government was shut down and the Tea Party was blamed, word went forth: The GOP has destroyed its brand. Republicans face a wipeout in 2014. It will take a generation to remove this mark of Cain. Eight weeks later, Obama’s approval is below 40 percent. Most Americans find him untrustworthy. And the GOP is favored to hold the seats it has in the House while making gains in the Senate. For this reversal of fortunes, Republicans can thank the rollout of Obamacare — the website that does not work, the revelation that, contrary to Obama’s promise, millions are losing health care plans that they liked, and the reports of soaring premiums and sinking benefits. Democrats, however, might take comfort in the old maxim: If you don’t like the weather here, just wait a while. For, egged on by Bibi Netanyahu and the Israeli Lobby AIPAC, the neocons are anticipating the return of Congress to start work on new sanctions on Iran. Should they succeed, they just might abort the Geneva talks or even torpedo the six-month deal with Iran. While shaking a fist in the face of the Ayatollah will rally the Republican base, it does not appear to be a formula for winning the nation. According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll from Tuesday, by 44-22 Americans approve of the deal NATO, Russia and China cut with Tehran to freeze its nuclear program. While two-thirds do not trust Iran when it says its program is not designed to build nuclear weapons, fully 65 percent believe “the United States should not become involved in any military action in the Middle East unless America is directly threatened.” Only 21 percent disagree. This is the nation that rose up last summer and told Obama it did not want to get involved in Syria’s civil war, and told Congress to deny Obama the authority to order air strikes — red line or no red line. Even if the Iran deal collapses, 80 percent of Americans would favor a return to the sanctions regime and negotiations. Only 20 percent would support military action against Iran. In summary, while Americans do not trust Iran, they do not want war

with Iran. They want to test Iran. On this issue, Obama is in sync with his countrymen. Why, looking at these numbers, would Republicans return to Washington with a full-metal-jacket ,”axis-of-evil” attitude, with John McCain becoming again the face of the party? Why would Republicans return to Washington and throw away the winning hand that is Obamacare? It is ravaging the president’s reputation for competence and his credibility, and calling into question the core philosophy of the Democratic Party — that Big Government is America’s salvation. Why would Republicans return to the bellicosity that cost the party both Houses in 2006 and the White House in 2008? That 20 percent of the nation which favors war with Iran, in the event of a deal collapse or breakdown in the talks, is already in the GOP corral. If Republicans seek to broaden their base, why abandon Obamacare, where a majority agrees with them, for an issue, renewed hostility to Iran, where a majority disagrees? Would it not be playing into Obama’s hand to allow him to assume the role of statesman, who, with “all options on the table,” is willing to negotiate with an enemy rather than take us to war with him? Did not Eisenhower, Nixon and Reagan all go this same route? If Bibi, AIPAC, the neocons and their congressional allies should sabotage the negotiations or scuttle the existing or future deal with Iran, maneuvering us into a another war in the Middle East that America does not want, how do they think this will sit with the voters in 2016? If Iran is deceiving us and is hellbent on breaking out of this deal and making a dash to a bomb, we will know about it months if not years before Iran ever tests a device, let alone builds a bomb, miniaturizes it and marries it to a delivery system. We would have more than enough notice to abort any test and neutralize Iran’s nuclear program. And the nation would unite behind action, were it seen that Iran had lied to us to buy time to build and test a bomb. But if the Republican Party leads Congress in imposing new sanctions, and the Iranians walk out, and the NATO-Russia-China coalition breaks up, and a chance for peace in the Persian Gulf seems to have been thrown away, the GOP will pay the price. And rightly so. (Syndicated columnist Pat Buchanan has been a senior advisor to three presidents, twice a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination and the presidential nominee of the Reform Party in 2000. He won the New Hampshire Republican Primary in 1996.)

LETTERS N.H. needs ‘Blue Law’ that keeps retailers closed Thanksgiving To The Daily Sun, My husband and I own a Sears Hometown Store in Plymouth. Much to my dismay we found out a few weeks ago that Sears’ mandatory open hours for Thanksgiving Day would be 7 p.m. to 12 a.m.. Last year was an optional decision per store owner. That said, Thanksgiving is one of three holidays that we believe is to be spent with family therefore we choose it not be open. Each year it seems more and more of our family time is taken away as a result of Sears’ company policies. Pretty soon, there will be no Thanksgiving holiday. This lack of focus on family values is disgraceful and quite frankly dishonorable to this country and the reason it’s in the poor state that it’s in. These are desperate times we are living and people will either have to work or run out to save money on Thanksgiving Day. As a Christian woman, this is against my religious right and what I believe for my family. From a historical stand point, this country began celebrating Thanksgiving back in 1621 with the Pilgrims and Indians at Plymouth Plantation. They celebrated and gave thanks for three days. In 1789, George Washington issued November 26, 1789 a Day of Public Thanksgiving. In 1863, Abraham Lincoln proclaimed the last

Thursday of November a national holiday for “Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwells in the Heavens”. It is clear Thanksgiving was intended a day of observance with family. Where in the Declaration of Independence does it give corporations the right to undermine the values of the citizens of this country? We deserve the right to celebrate as a family the freedom of America and thankfulness! As a Christian woman, I value my time with my family and am thankful to God for all He has blessed us with. Again, our store 3673 will not be open on Thanksgiving Day. I am more than sure that all the retail corporate heads will be celebrating with a four or five day holiday. I ask you as citizens of N.H. to stand with me and petition the State House to pass a “Blue Law”, stating retailers to be closed on Thanksgiving Day for 2014! Let your voices be heard. You may sign in person at our store location or online @ https://www.change. org/petitions/nh-state-house-officialscongress-president-obama-pass-intolaw-that-retailers-would-be-closedfor-thanksgiving# Holly Cassiano Sears Hometown Store owner Plymouth

The president is a servant of the American people; he is not king To The Daily Sun, In the Nov. 21st edition of The Laconia Daily Sun, Jon Hoyt made a very telling statement: “As the GOP wolves are surrounding the president like he is a wounded lion, they are forgetting one thing: the lion is the king of the jungle for a reason; the lion is a cat and a cat has nine lives.” It screams of a gross failure of our educational system. American History has been rewritten and even expunged from our public schools. “Social Studies” (from personal high school experience, this should be called SOCIALIST studies!) has replaced American History. The founding of our nation, the founders and our Constitution have been evicted by liberal progressivism. Please, take some time to check out what powers are those of the LEGISLATIVE branch, the JUDICIAL

branch and the EXECUTIVE branch of government. Let’s make that challenge easy — the Constitution of the United States is on line: http://www. usconstitution.net/const.html The POTUS is an elected official. Obama has, in his time in office, attempted to usurp the powers of Congress more egregiously than any past POTUS. The POTUS does not make laws, does not decide which laws may be disregarded in what manner, or enforced if he feels like they should be enforced. The POTUS is an elected official and as such, a servant of the people. He is NOT a king! Since our country was established we have never had a king! Our country has a president with limited powers for a reason: Liberty! Respectfully, A.C.R. Piper

LETTERS Kennedy rolling in his grave watching Democratic self indulgence To The Daily Sun, A conservative remembers and honors the death of JFK 50 years ago. In 1960, the nation was consumed with the election of John Kennedy, a first time Catholic to the presidency. My parents were Democrats and Kennedy fanatics. Dad had just been given a pair of beagle pups as a gift, he named the boy Jack and the girl Jackie. I am sure if I had been born that year my name would have been John Kennedy Boutin. Jack, Jacqueline, their young kids and the Kennedy clan dominated politics and the public psyche like none other at that moment in history. No one could escape the Kennedy mystique even if they wanted to. The period would become known as “ Camelot”. Today’s will be recalled as “gridlockalot”. Kennedy was once asked early on why he was a Democrat, his dry answer” because I was born one”. His short and stark answer revealed much about the man and his politics. He could have spouted some long, litany of beloved Democratic ideals and beliefs about government and public good. He didn’t. Kennedy championed STRONG states rights (the exact opposite of Obama’s state Medicaid cram-down) and he stood FIRMLY OPPOSED to a strong, centralized government. He was strong currency hawk not a printing freak like Obama. IF JFK were alive today, it is almost certain he would be a REPUBLICAN, NOT A DEMOCRAT. You laugh. Kennedy’s policies and thinking of that time are far more aligned with that of conservative Republicans today, than modern Democrats. In fact it is Jack Kennedy we should credit with ENDORSING “supply side” economics. He recognized the importance of TAX CUTS to stimulate growth, rather than government spending sprees that

produce nothing but economy-killing, mountains of debt like we experience today. In Kennedy’s day, he shot down those who twisted his views and policies saying, and I quote DIRECTLY, “I would be very happy to tell them I am NOT a LIBERAL at all”. It was JFK, a DEMOCRAT who uttered the famous words, “It isn’t what your country can do for you but rather what you can do for your country”. Tell me the last time you heard ONE Democrat talking about anything except BIGGER, more EXPANSIVE and more GENEROUS GOVERNMENT. When was the last time Democrats asked their constituents to do anything to SACRIFICE for their country the way Kennedy did? Modern Democrats speak ONLY about TAKING MORE, from more people. Kennedy must be grave rolling watching this spectacle of Democratic self indulgence. ENTITLEMENTS are BANKRUPT going forward BY EVERY MEASURE in the TENS of TRILLIONS, threatening to destroy the financial security of our children and the country. With such certain disaster ahead Kennedy wouldn’t be BACKING DOWN from reforming such programs. He would be “selling the reality” that pain today will be far less than fixes required latter, on others. Kennedy’s presidency, like that of Reagan and even Clinton were all about people and country being first. Kennedy, Regan and Clinton were not consumed with their legacies and stroking their egos. ABOVE ALL, their presidencies were not ABOUT THEM. It is that single characteristic that distinguishes these men from the presidency of Barack Obama. I say this with much sadness and even more regret. Tony Boutin Gilford

To The Daily Sun, Imagine this if you will. I’m a woman and you’re a man. We’re supposed to be working together to make New Hampshire a better place. We’re supposed to co-operate. We may disagree from time to time, but that’s how it goes in the real world. But one day you become green with envy. You let your true feelings flow through your fingertips out to the whole world on Twitter by posting this about me: “She’s Al Baldasarro in stiletto heels, a lightweight and O’Brien clone.” What kind of man would do that? If you were married to this man, would you be happy with him? How many nights would you make him sleep on the couch? If you were this man’s daughter, would you be proud of your daddy? Would you want him to walk you down the aisle arm in arm surrounded by other women? If you were this man’s pastor, would you mention him in a sermon holding him up as a great moral example others should follow? Democratic State Rep. Peter Sulli-

van said those disparaging comments about Republican State Rep. Marilinda Garcia just after she announced she’s running for U.S. Congress. The best thing you can say about Peter Sullivan is he’s a cad. I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of politicians who have no class and are sexist. I’m not a trained psychologist, but Rep. Sullivan’s tweet drips of professional envy. How many women out there are going to rise up and demand an apology from Rep. Sullivan? Or don’t you care? Are you going to let him get away with this? If you remain quiet, then don’t get upset when men treat you like a throw rug and walk all over you. I’ll make it easy for you to chew Peter out. I’d suggest you give Peter a call and give him a piece of your mind, but he’s cancelled the service on his 603-6475453 phone number. My guess is lots of upset women have already called. You may just want to email him: peter.sullivan@leg.state.nh.us Tim Carter Meredith

We would like to thank woman who found our beloved ‘Honey’ To The Daily Sun, We are trying to find the woman who stopped on Route 11, in Gilford, on Saturday, at 2:30 p.m. to help a lost dog. Our beloved golden retriever, “Honey”, escaped from her fenced in yard and headed up Route 11. Because she is an animal lover we have our “Honey” home and safe. She called our phone number on the dog collar and we picked “Honey” up. She was in a white SUV between Belknap Point Motel and Patrick’s.

We did not get a chance to thank her for her thoughtfulness and wanted her to know how much we sincerely appreciate her actions . Please contact us so we can thank you in person. The outcome would have been a lot different if you did not stop that day. We are forever grateful that you were there for our “Honey”. Elaine & Harry Blinn Belknap Point Motel Gilford

from preceding page separation and division as to who must abide by congressional law and who is exempt from it must come to a screeching halt. The goal in any legislation should always be what is fair and judicious for everyone! Edgar is also right to suggest that unless our state’s national representa-

tives start pounding the table in opposition to this trend of “elusive legislation”, they should be voted out of office. And should this ever come to pass, let’s hope we end up with “common folk” and “common sense” representation as it was so many years ago. Roland Jutras Meredith

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, November 29, 2013 — Page 7

LETTERS Some of contributors to these pages should do a little research To The Daily Sun, The headline “Obama’s grade point average at Columbia was impressive 3.7” caught my attention. Some of the letters to this paper are literally unreal. I often wonder if these people actually attach their real names to these letters they write. Particularly the ones that peddle hearsay as fact. Of course L.J. Siden is a self-proven heavy Kool-Aid drinker but it is hard to believe there are people still walking around out there that still believe every last word this president says. A 3.7 gpa is very impressive indeed. What would be even more impressive is if Obama would allow this claim to be independently verified. Fact: Barack Hussein Obama has never allowed any independent verification of his college transcripts. Period. All we have is his word. And we all know how good his word is don’t we. Apparently the “folks” are beginning to awake from whatever coma they have been in for the last six years and realize this president for what the 47 percent of us who didn’t vote for him already knew he is. A liar. Period. there have been repeated calls by conservatives and independents for him to release his college records, but he has thus far refused. Why? A person of reasonable intelligence could only conclude the obvious. He is hiding something. I would suspect that something would be a little thing

called the truth, something I think supreme-ruler Obama knows very little about. What is interesting about this is the media in this country has always had an obsession with presidents and presidential contender’s college transcripts. If these people are not forthcoming with them then the media will dig them up and put them on public display. Am I the only one who remembers the media witch hunt for the Bush 43 transcripts? Then along comes Barack Hussein Obama and all of a sudden the media has zero interest in his college career. Why? Maybe in 100 years they will unlock the ‘Obama files,’ like JFK, after we are all long dead. Provided this country is still here in 100 years. Some of the contributors to this paper would do well to do a little thing called research before writing to the paper and making themselves sound ignorant to those of us who pay attention and have a clue whats going on in the world around us. But they won’t. There is a saying that says “you cant fix stupid”. So you all just keep the Kool-Aid flowing and keep writing these crazy and ridiculous letters because even I have to admit they are far more entertaining than any of the garbage I have seen on a TV or movie screen in the last 20 years.

Obama’s agreement with Iran reeks of another Munich Accord To The Daily Sun, Writing this letter on Monday the 25th, I see and read reports that President Obama is holding negotiations with Iran trying to finalize an agreement that would allow Iran peaceful nuke development and stop nuke weapons development. Now I can applaud the thought but frankly he scares the heck out of me. Apparently Mr. Obama considers the lessons of history do not apply where he is concerned. He seems to think his personal charm and power to persuade will win over a fanatical religious despot. The whole thing reeks of another Munich Accord. For those not familiar with that historical event, that was when, in 1938, British Prime minister Neville Chamberland and French Premier Edouard

Daladier went to Munich, Germany and signed away Czechoslovakia’s existence and freedom without even a single Czech representative present. One year later WW2 began and 60+/million humans died in that war. My point? You can not trust despots to honor their words, promises or treaty’s. Over and over this country has tried to make agreements with N. Korea, the PLO, Iraq, Iran. You name them the list goes on and on and on and always these despots cheat and finally break their words and treaties. This will be no different only this time it will mean Atomic war. Our people and cities will not be safe. Appeasement never works, never will. Steve Earle Hill

Rep. Garcia should be treated as respected & honored opponent To The Daily Sun, In the 2012 elections, Democrats attacked Republicans as anti-women. This is par for the course in most of our elections, though there is no truth to it. Fast forward to today. N.H. State Rep. Marilinda Garcia (R) throws her hat in the ring to challenge U.S. Congresswoman Anne Kuster (D). Within minutes of her announcement, N.H .State Rep. Peter Sullivan (D) hits the “Tweet” circuit. He infers that by adding former N.H. Speaker of the House Bill O’Brien and Kim Kardashian equals Marilinda Garcia. In another tweet, he says that Marilinda

is Al Baldasarro in stiletto heels. Marilinda Garcia is a rising star in the Republican Party and the Latino community. So many of us are proud of her, and her constituents keep sending her back to Concord to represent them. She must be doing something right! The Democrat Party, and Rep. Peter Sullivan, should issue an apology for these types of derogatory comments. Rather than attack her personally as an enemy, why don’t you do the right thing — treat her as a respected and honored opponent! Don Walker Barnstead

First step taken to transfer Area Road to Gilford By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

GILFORD — Area Road, which was built as part of a private subdivision around 1970 and which has served as an exit way from Gunstock Mountain Resort in recent years, is on its way to becoming a town-maintained roadway. Gunstock General Manager Gregg Goddard met with Belknap County Commissioners Wednesday morning to seek approval for granting a right of way on county-owned land to the town of Gilford, which will enable the town to maintain the road. The road extends from Rte. 11-A to the Gunstock Mountain Resort property and is gated at the Gunstock end. Described by Goddard as being in a ‘’no man’s land’’, the road was one of two in a chalet style subdivision built by Phil Roux on land near the former Mount Rowe Ski Area. He said that one of the roads, Chalet Drive, located about 1,000 feet to the west on Rte. 11-A, was later accepted as a town road but Area Road, where 11 homes are located, has remained a from preceding page Roasting Company, Curt’s Caterers, LLC, Patrick’s Pub & Eatery, Laconia Village Bakery, O Steaks & Seafood, Annie’s Café & Catering, Kevin’s Café, Hart’s Turkey Farm Restaurant, Tilt’n Diner, Gilford Gourmet, Fratello’s, Taylor Rental, Bank of New Hampshire, and Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce.

private road. Gunstock assumed control over part of property along Area Road when it acquired the 105-acre Alpine Ridge (formerly Mount Rowe) property from Penny Pitou and Milo Pike in 1998. ‘’We use it when we’re really busy, like Soulfest during the summer and on our busy winter weekends,’’ Goddard said of the former ski area property on Area Road. He told commissioners that Gunstock has been looking at what to do about the road since 2008 and that it surveyed homeowners along the road about the situation and was able to talk with all but two of them and that all those surveyed supported the town taking over the road. Goddard said that granting a right of way on county property requires approval from not only the Gunstock Area Commission, a five-member board which oversees Gunstock’s operations, but also from the Belknap County Commission and the Belknap County Convention. ‘’The town needs land outside the 50-foot right-ofway in order to maintain the road,’’ said Goddard, who said the right of way easement covers 5,364square feet- about an eighth of an acre. He said that Gunstock will need to make some improvements to the property in order to meet Gilford’s conditions for accepting it as a town road, including pavement patching, ditch repair and utility pole removal. The improvements, which will be made at Gunstock’s expense, will cost between $8,000 and $10,000, and will most likely be accomplished in the spring said Goddard. ‘’We’ll have to install and temporary barrier and will move the fence back. We’ll also create an area for snow storage and will probably lose about five or see next page

Laconia man who was tasered guilty of resisting arrest; felony drug charges pending BY GAIL OBER

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — A Laconia man who was zapped by a Taser twice by a Belknap County Sheriff’s Deputy has been found guilty of resisting arrest and disobeying an officer. After a bench trial during the early part of November, Judge Jim Carroll of the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division ruled the police had justifiable cause to detain Matthew Tusi, finding him guilty of two misdemeanors that resulted from the stop. Tusi, 30, has also been indicted in the Belknap County Superior Court for three felony counts of drug possession and one misdemeanor count of drug possession. Police allege he had marijuana, cocaine, oxycodone, and heroin on him at the time of the incident. According to affidavits and eye-witness accounts of Tusi’s arrest, Sheriff’s Deputy E. Justin Blanchette noticed Tusi driving along the road that leads

to the Belknap County House of Corrections shortly after 9 p.m. on August 7. Blanchette, who knows Tusi, said he was concerned because there have been instances of contraband introduced at the jail and the road to the jail is limited access. In addition, the road is marked that all vehicles are subject to random stops and searches. In the parking lot of the jail, Tusi approached Blanchette and asked him “if he could help him.” When Blanchette asked him why he was there, Tusi told him he was bringing bail money for a friend of his. Blanchette said he told Tusi his recollection was that the woman was sentenced and was in no need of bail, but asked Tusi to wait while he checked. Blanchette said Tusi, after swearing and screaming at him, got back in his car and left, while he was checking to see if the woman was sentenced or in need of bail. He said he beckoned to Tusi to “wait a minute” while he checked but Tusi left.

Blanchette followed Tusi, who he said didn’t violate any traffic rules, but told the court he waited until Tusi was near the intersection of Union Avenue and Gilford Avenue before turning on his blue lights because he was waiting for backup from Laconia Police. Tusi slowed and pulled to the right side of Gilford Avenue but didn’t immediately get out of the car. In his ruling Carroll said Blanchette needed to use his loudspeaker to tell Tusi to get out of the car. Tusi ran from the car and reached into the waistband of his sweatpants. Blanchette ordered him to show his hands and Tusi ran into a back yard near the lower end of Gilford Avenue. Police pursued and a backyard struggle resulted. Witnesses said Tusi was zapped twice that night. Affidavits said one prong of the Taser missed on the first strike but Tusi was hit squarely by the Taser the second time and fell in the backyard. He yelled and said he wanted an ambulance. Surrounded by members of his family, as well as Blanchette, Laconia Police, and off-duty Gilford Lt. James Leach, Tusi said repeatedly he couldn’t walk and that he wanted an ambulance. After about five to seven minutes, a sergeant from the Laconia Police, told somebody to call an ambulance and one was called. One of the members of Tusi’s family, who witnessed most of the episode, said later that Tusi had a money order on him that he was bringing to the woman for deposit into her jail account. He said in his opinion Tusi misspoke when he told Blanchette he was bringing “bail” money to the woman. It was initially reported that Tusi struggled and ambulance crews needed to subdue him. The family member said, and The Sun confirmed, that during the apparent struggle, three police officers were in the ambulance with Tusi while the two ambulance attendants were outside. Surrounding the ambulance during this time were three male members of Tusi’s family, the supervisor for the Laconia Police, the Gilford police officer, one of his friends — an off-duty police officer from New York State — and the two ambulance employees. Other witnesses were unable to see into the ambulance but, because the lights were on the inside of the ambulance were on, were able to see some kind of struggle through the windows. see next page from preceding page

six parking spaces,’’ said Goddard. Commissioners, at the suggestion of Gilford Town Administrator Scott Dunn, who was present at the meeting, approved a motion signing off on the layout plan which the town has approved. Gilford selectmen will hold a public hearing Wednesday, December 4 at 7 p.m. on accepting Area Road as a town road.

PAROLE from page 2 locked up,” he said. “I had the impression at the time that he would’ve expected his parents to show up the next day.” Jeffrey’s immaturity was one of the reasons prosecutors struck a deal with him, said U.S. Attorney John Kacavas, who was an assistant attorney general when he prosecuted the teens. “We felt he was capable of redemption and rehabilitation because he was so young,” he said. “We could not feel that way about his brother.” Testifying at his brother’s trial, Jeffrey calmly admitted shooting his parents first but said Robert instigated the killings and finished off both parents, taunting each before firing the fatal shots. Prosecutors said Robert chafed under his parents’ rules and curfews, and Jeffrey described being yelled at repeatedly by his mother and hit by his father, both 40, over bad grades. In the months leading up to the killings, the boys considered several outlandish plots, including poisoning their parents or pushing them onto thin ice, Jeffrey testified. “The various schemes that children of that age try to conjure up are so immature and foolish, you can’t really conceive of what they actually followed through with,” Kacavas said. “They were incomprehensible acts.” Kacavas said the lack of remorse displayed by either teen was “the most profound aspect of the case.” Vance Dingman’s sister Darlyn said this week she hopes the parole board takes that into account, as well as the brutality of the crimes, when deciding whether her nephew should be released. “Personally, we wish he had fried, but that didn’t happen,” she said. “He should not be let out. He’s as guilty as his brother.” She and other relatives have said the Dingmans were devoted parents who took their sons to Disney World and never missed a soccer game. “These boys were raised just like everyone else,” she said. “Their parents loved them, they did everything for them. We don’t know what went wrong. They weren’t abused, they weren’t deprived, they had everything they could’ve wanted.” McLaughlin said he has no idea what kind of parents the Dingmans were, but reasonable adults know that things are not always as simple as they seem. And he urged others to take a compassionate view. “If young Mr. Dingman has grown into a man deserving of parole, then I suspect he will be granted parole, and I’d wish for him what I’d wish for anybody else,” he said. “And that is: to move on, do his best to contribute and lead a good life.” from preceding page According to Carroll’s ruling, the defendant showed “no effects of the Taser.” Tusi is being held on cash-only bail at the Belknap County House of Corrections. As of Friday, he has not been sentenced for the two misdemeanor convictions.

Sanctions against Iran being eased a bit but hard pinch will still be felt DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — The sanctions relief offered to Iran by the U.S. and five world powers has begun to get the gears of commerce slowly turning again in an economy that remains in shambles. The Obama administration estimates relief from some sanctions in exchange for a temporary pause in Iran’s nuclear enrichment program will amount to just $7 billion. That’s a meager amount for the economy of a nation of nearly 80 million people — it’s less than one month’s worth of Iran’s oil production and just 7 percent of Iran’s overseas cash that remains frozen under the sanctions. Still, Iranians see the move as a much needed step toward a more normal economy after years of crippling inflation and job losses. “Markets operate on a psychological basis,” says Ray Takeyh, an Iran expert at the Council on Foreign Relations and former U.S. State Department senior adviser. “The psychology of Iranian commerce has changed.” Rahmat Dehghani, a glazier, says he has been invited to discuss a new hotel project in the northeastern city of Mashhad, 550 miles (900 kilometers) east of the capital, Tehran. “For months, the owner had delayed

any discussion about his project since the future was not clear for any investment,” he said. The Iranian economy was already struggling under the weight of corruption, mismanagement and costly food, energy and cash subsides for the poor when the U.S. and Europe broadened economic sanctions against Iran to include its crucial oil and banking sectors in late 2011. Oil sales plummeted by about 1.5 million barrels per day, depriving Iran of about $80 billion since early 2012, according to the White House. At the same time, much of the revenue Iran did earn from exports to a few Asian countries that were allowed to buy Iranian oil remained out of the country. The sanctions required oil buyers to pay into locked bank accounts that Iran can access only to purchase non-sanctioned goods or humanitarian supplies. Manufacturers found it increasingly difficult to buy crucial components to make products or keep factories running. Inflation and unemployment soared and Iran’s national currency, the rial, lost more than half its value. “People can’t save, they can’t invest, it’s hard to buy a home, no one can trust the currency, no one knows what they really earn,” says Anthony

Cordesman, a Middle East and energy expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. At the same time, Iran is believed to have provided the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad with billions of dollars in economic aid and fuel over the past three years as Syria’s civil war erupted. Public grumbling grew. Prices for staples such as chicken and lamb climbed out of reach of many low-

income Iranians. Late last year, Iranian riot police were deployed at key intersections in Tehran after sporadic protests flared. That frustration led to the election of President Hassan Rouhani, who campaigned on economic reforms. Iranians blamed former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for mismanagement and corruption that many believe was at least as damaging to the economy as the West’s sanctions.

IRAQ from page 2 A suicide bomber attacked a police checkpoint in the town of Samarra, 95 kilometers (60 miles) north of the capital, killing three officers, authorities said. The blast wounded four officers and five civilians. A roadside bomb struck a patrol of a pro-government, anti-al-Qaida Sunni militia, killing three and wounding seven in Tarmiyah, a Sunni town and former insurgent stronghold about 50 kilometers (30 miles) north of Baghdad, police said. Militants consider members of the group, known as the Awakening Council, as traitors since they were formed by U.S. forces during the height of Iraq’s insurgency. A bomb also went off in Baghdad’s

Palestine Street, killing two civilians and wounding eight, police said. Four medical officials confirmed the casualty figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to release information. A spike in attacks in Iraq has raised fears about a return of the sectarian bloodshed that pushed the country to the brink of civil war in 2006-2007. Violence has been on rise since April when the government launched a bloody crackdown on a Sunni protest camp. More than 5,500 people have been killed since. Thursday’s attacks bring the total death toll so far this month to 438, according to an Associated Press count.

MEREDITH — Laconia Harley-Davidson has launched an effort to support those in need this holiday season while also helping to beautify downtown Meredith. On Saturday, November 30 Laconia Harley will host its first annual Christmas tree lighting and month-long coat drive to benefit Laconia Goodwill, the area’s largest charity thrift store and donation center, which supports families throughout New Hampshire’s Lakes Region. After the holiday season, Laconia Harley will donate the 13-foot Balsam tree to the Greater Meredith Program. More information can be found at www.laconiaharley.com. With performances by the Brian Robert Band, along with demonstrations by award-winning ice sculptor Jeff Day, the tree lighting and coat drive will take place from 3 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, November 30 at Laconia Harley Davidson in Meredith. The Brian Robert Band will perform rock n’ roll versions of Christmas classics while Day will transform a block of ice into a snowman. The fun, free family event will feature plenty of delicious treats, including gingerbread cookies, frosted sugar cookies, hot cocoa and Irish coffee—provided by Hart’s Turkey Farm. “The holiday season is really about giving, and as a local business we feel it’s our responsibility to support our community. Laconia Goodwill has long been the leading advocate for people in need in the Lakes Region,” said Anne Deli, owner of Laconia HarleyDavidson. “We hope this campaign helps warm the hearts and bodies of those in the community that need assistance the most.

pleased to create a family-oriented event at our dealership that will also help enhance downtown Meredith.” As the leading thrift store and donation center in the region, Laconia Goodwill is always there for families in need, providing needed clothing and resources. “A coat does so much more than keep someone warm. Every time someone shops or donates to our organization they are helping so many across New Hampshire and northern New England,” said Maureen Puia, director of communications for Goodwill Industries of Northern New England. The 13-foot balsam tree will be decorated with white lights and “chrome accents” by Cole Gardens of Concord. Attendees can guess the number of lights on the tree for the chance to win a $1,000 gift card to Laconia Harley Davidson. After the holiday season the balsam will be donated to the Greater Meredith Program, a nonprofit organization working to enhance the economic vitality in Meredith, while preserving the community’s cultural and historical heritage. The organization is also working on a town-wide beautification project, which includes planting an additional 100 trees in town during the next five years. “Laconia Harley-Davidson is widely known as a philanthropic leader in the Lakes Region and we are thrilled that they have agreed to donate this beautiful tree which will support our overall mission of beautifying the community,” said Liz Lapham, executive director of the Greater Meredith Program.

Williams said the family tried unsuccessfully to put it out but called 9-1-1 and evacuated the home. He said the family also has a dog and a cat that also made it out. Firefighters from Alton and Gilford arrived and Williams said a first-alarm was called but almost immediately canceled. He said firefighters extinguished mattress and the family said it would stay with friends. “We have fire imaging cameras,” William said. “We were really comfortable (knowing) the fire was out.” He said firefighters remained at the home for about two hours and, because the home is about 10 feet from the road, he said police closed the road for about two hours.

At 4:30 a.m. firefighters were called back to the house and found it completely engulfed in flames. Williams said the house was a total loss. The animals perished in the second fire. Firefighters from Alton, Gilford, Gilmanton, and Barnstead fought the blaze and New Durham firefighters covered Alton stations. The road was closed for a number of hours and traffic was diverted. N.H. Fire Marshal Thomas Riley said yesterday his initial investigation shows the second fire was accidental and likely electrical in nature. Williams said the mattress fire could have been caused by smoking material but was leaving the investigation to the fire marshal. — Gail Ober

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, November 29, 2013— Page 23

HATHAWAY HOUSE from page one right-of-way, the application, once complete, must also be presented to the Heritage Commission for review. Clark said yesterday that the commission will consider the application at its next regularly scheduled meeting on Wednesday, December 11. She expected the commission would authorize her to decline to endorse the application for a demolition permit and instead schedule a public hearing in an effort to preserve the building. Once the commission schedules a public hearing, the owner is required by ordinance to post a sign to that effect, along with the date, time and place of the hearing, on the building in plain sight. Should the public hearing close without agreement on an alternative to demolition, the Heritage Commission shall meet with the owner within 10 days to seek agreement on an alternative. Without an agreement to preserve the building, the owner may proceed with demolition while the Heritage Commission, with the consent of the owner, shall photograph and document the building as well as encourage the owner to salvage any of its important architectural features. Concern for the future of the Hathaway House was first aroused in 2008 when Cafua, which acquired the property in 2000, proposed demolishing the house and constructing a Dunkin’ Donuts store and strip mall on the site. However, after a series of meetings with city officials and concerned citizens,

Cafua agreed to preserve the Hathaway House and build the Dunkin’ Donuts outlet on the remaining 0.75-acre parcel. When the project was approved, Nolan assured the Planning Board that the Hathaway House would be repainted as well as fitted with a fire alarm and fire suppression system. He said the company had no plans for the building other than to preserve it. Two years later the building, which had not been painted or improved, was offered for sale or lease. At the time Nolan assured the Planning Department “there will be a condition that the house cannot be scrapped.” He repeated that he intended to paint the building, but conceded that the work had yet to be scheduled. While the building went without paint, improvement or repair, its champions charged Cafua with “demolition by neglect.” Repeated requests for an explanation of the company’s plans for the property went unanswered. In October, concern mounted when a work crew arrived to remove asbestos from the building and board up its windows, prompting members of the Heritage Commission to begin picketing the property and boycotting Dunkin’ Donuts in protest. At the same time, the picketeers have advertised in local newspapers explaining their action and encouraging the public to join the boycott by listing other coffee shops in the city.

SHOPPING from page 2 early November, which has led retail experts to question whether the Thanksgiving openings will steal some of Black Friday’s thunder. In fact, Thanksgiving openings took a bite out of Black Friday sales last year: Sales on turkey day were $810 million last year, an increase of 55 percent from the previous year as more stores opened on the holiday, according to Chicago research firm ShopperTrak. But sales dropped 1.8 percent to $11.2 billion on Black Friday, though it still was the biggest shopping day last year. “Black Friday is now Gray Friday,” said Craig Johnson, president of Customer Growth Partners, a retail consultancy. “It’s been pulled all the way to the beginning of November.” Stores are trying to get shoppers to buy in an economy that’s still challenging. While the job and housing markets are improving, that hasn’t yet translated into sustained spending increases among most shoppers.

Overall, The National Retail Federation expects retail sales to be up 3.9 percent to $602.1 billion during the last two months of the year. That’s higher than last year’s 3.5 percent growth, but below the 6 percent pace seen before the recession. Analysts expect sales to be generated at the expense of profits as retailers will likely have to do more discounting to get people into stores. More than two dozen stores including Kohl’s and Wal-Mart have already lowered their profit outlooks for the year. The Thanksgiving openings are part of retailers’ holiday strategy of trying to lure shoppers in early and often during the holiday shopping season. But the stores face challenges in doing that. Some workers have petitions on change.org to protest against Target and Best Buy. The Retail Action Project, a labor-backed group of retail workers, also is planning to have members visiting customers at stores including Gap and Victoria’s Secret in the Manhattan borough of New York City to educate them about the demands on workers. Wal-Mart has been the biggest target for protests against holiday hours. Most of the company’s stores are open 24 hours, but the retailer is starting its sales events at 6 p.m. on Thursday, two hours earlier than last year. The issue is part of a broader campaign against the company’s treatment of workers that’s being waged by a union-backed group called OUR Walmart, which includes former and current workers. The group is staging demonstrations and walkouts at hundreds of stores around the country on Black Friday.

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis

someone makes the same mistake repeatedly, it might not be a mistake at all. It could be a personality style that you are better off to accept and expect. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Whether it’s for work or fun, getting into motion is the hardest part. After that, you’re home free. The feeling that you are moving forward is motivation enough to bring you to the end. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You have to spell things out for some people. Expecting them to know how to act or to pick up on your social cues will set you up for disappointment. Sure, it’s more work, but it just happens that way sometimes. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 29). The next four weeks are sociable, and you’ll take unique samplings of life. Your imagination is stirred in January. You’ll come up with inventive solutions for everything from relationships to transportation to daily life. You’ll win a case or contest in March. Give all you can to the one who needs it in April. Leo and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 28, 31, 22 and 17.

by Chad Carpenter

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You can be gentle when you need to be, and you need to be now. A certain person will run unless you are unrelentingly kind and reassuring. This person can’t take even the smallest amount of criticism. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The way your family members act doesn’t have to be a reflection on you. Let people be the way they are, and try not to get involved unless it seems truly necessary. You’ll make your own impressions. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The reward for taking a risk won’t be the prize at the end -that is likely to be made of plastic and require regular dusting. The real reward is the feeling that you’ve truly achieved something. CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s important to react to what happens in a timely and proportionate manner. The “proportionate” part is important. You’ll get very little accomplished by overreacting to the events around you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll feel like stealing away to recharge, and if you can manage it, you should. Spending time alone teaches you to be there for yourself. It is within your power to make yourself feel safe. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It’s the same scene, but some of the people involved will remember it with pleasure, and some will remember it with pain. With some sensitivity, you can tip the balance toward pleasure for someone on the fence. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Expose yourself repeatedly to the thing that makes you uncomfortable, and you’ll find that it loses power over you. You’ll become comfortable whether or not you want to be. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll be drawn to situations in which you have no idea what is expected of you. Most people avoid that kind of thing, but you get a charge from the challenge of the unknown. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It is vigilant of you to guess at the motives of others, but take a break from this now, as it’s likely a waste of time. If you want to know why a person is acting in a certain way, just ask. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, November 29, 2013— Page 25

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, Nov. 29, the 333rd day of 2013. There are 32 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 29, 1961, Enos the chimp was launched from Cape Canaveral aboard the Mercury-Atlas 5 spacecraft, which orbited earth twice before returning. On this date: In 1864, a Colorado militia killed at least 150 peaceful Cheyenne Indians in the Sand Creek Massacre. In 1924, Italian composer Giacomo Puccini died in Brussels before he could complete his opera “Turandot.” (It was finished by Franco Alfano.) In 1929, Navy Lt. Cmdr. Richard E. Byrd, pilot Bernt Balchen, radio operator Harold June and photographer Ashley McKinney made the first airplane flight over the South Pole. In 1947, the U.N. General Assembly passed a resolution calling for the partitioning of Palestine between Arabs and Jews. In 1952, President-elect Dwight D. Eisenhower secretly left on a trip to Korea, keeping his campaign promise to assess the ongoing conflict first-hand. In 1972, the coin-operated video arcade game Pong, created by Atari, made its debut at Andy Capp’s Tavern in Sunnyvale, Calif. In 1981, actress Natalie Wood drowned in a boating accident off Santa Catalina Island, Calif., at age 43. In 1986, actor Cary Grant died in Davenport, Iowa, at age 82. In 1987, a Korean Air 707 jetliner en route from Abu Dhabi to Bangkok was destroyed by a bomb planted by North Korean agents with the loss of all 115 people aboard. In 1989, in response to a growing pro-democracy movement in Czechoslovakia, the Communist-run Parliament ended the party’s 40-year monopoly on power. In 2001, George Harrison, the “quiet Beatle,” died in Los Angeles following a battle with cancer; he was 58. Ten years ago: Gunmen in Iraq ambushed and killed two Japanese diplomats; seven members of Spain’s military intelligence agency were killed in Mahmudiyah. Thirty-three people were killed in the crash of a military plane in Congo. Five years ago: Indian commandos killed the last remaining gunmen holed up at a luxury Mumbai hotel, ending a 60-hour rampage through India’s financial capital by suspected Pakistani-based militants that killed 166 people. Architect Joern Utzon, who designed the iconic Sydney Opera House in Sydney, Australia, died at age 90. One year ago: The United Nations voted overwhelmingly to recognize a Palestinian state, a vote that came exactly 65 years after the General Assembly voted to divide Palestine into separate states for Jews and Arabs. President Barack Obama had lunch with defeated Republican nominee Mitt Romney in the White House’s private dining room; the White House says they discussed America’s leadership in the world.

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Dear Annie: I’m 16 and have been best friends with “Cindi” since second grade. Last weekend, my parents attended a party and allowed Cindi to stay overnight. Two people broke into the house to rob it. They tied up and gagged Cindi and then forced me to take them from room to room putting things in a sack. Before leaving, they tied and gagged me, too, leaving both of us face down on the floor. Over the next few hours, we struggled and then tried to talk and even started giggling, but mostly, we just waited for my parents to come home and call the police. Naturally, we’ve been the “stars” at school since then, but I discovered that Cindi is telling her own version of what happened. She says I was weepy and panicky. This really upsets me. I don’t want Cindi to portray me as a weakling to our friends. We spent five hours on the floor together, but except for a few sobs, I thought we handled it well. So how do I handle Cindi? -- Bound, Gagged and Furious Dear Bound: Cindi does this because she wants to make herself look good. The fact that she does it at your expense is damaging the friendship, and you should say so and ask her to stop. You also can let your friends know that you remember things a little differently, while holding your head up and not letting it get to you. But mostly, we hope you realize how very fortunate the two of you are to have escaped this robbery unharmed. Dear Annie: A fairly new friend and I just returned from lunch, after which I realized that a rather frequent problem has happened yet again. I’ve read your column for years and know that people write to get help dealing with family and friends. This time, the problem is me! When I’m with others, I chatter. I tell overly detailed sto-

ries. I even strike up conversations with people around me in lines and with store clerks. It’s like I must become their friend for the duration. Sometimes before meeting with people, I tell myself that I will make an effort to control my chatter, but when I am having fun, I forget. I really admire people who draw out conversation from others by asking pertinent questions, and I, too, want to be a person who asks and listens. Do you have any clues for reining myself in? -- Chatty Cathy Dear Chatty: The fact that you notice your chatter and wish to stop is a good sign, although you may be a little hard on yourself. Try counting to 10 when someone starts speaking. Listen to what they are saying. Imagine that it is a fascinating subject, and try to formulate a question or comment that allows them to expand on the topic. You don’t have to do it every time, but even once or twice during a conversation will help you slow down and focus on the other person. Dear Annie: The letter from “New York” described dumpster diving for food. My husband is an experienced “dumpster diver,” although he doesn’t look for edible items. We live in a small college town. Annie, you would not believe what students throw into dumpsters when they go home for the summer or move into their own apartments. My husband has found brand-new appliances, clothes, and unopened cake mixes, cereal, spices and canned meats. It’s astonishing. We have found microwave ovens, computers, video games, patio furniture, linens -- you name it. When we were both out of work, this was a lifesaver to us. We are in a better financial situation now, but I remember those days fondly. -- Mel in Michigan

Plymouth chamber workshop on social media marketing PLYMOUTH - The Plymouth Regional Chamber of Commerce is once again partnering with Constant Contact and the Enterprise Center at Plymouth to bring another exciting event to the Plymouth area on Wednesday, December 11 from 7:30-9:30 a.m. at the Common Man Inn in Plymouth. Joanne Randall, owner of Leap Year Marketing, will be back to share tips and strategies to simplify social media marketing. While social media has become an integral part of the marketing mix for most small business owners, how to connect and engage with customers on these platforms is still a mystery. Randall will help simplify the process and

teach time-saving aspects for a social media marketing strategy. In this information-packed session, attendees will learn how to: implement time-saving techniques, create valuable content, and build a quality community. Business owners and marketers will walk away with a better understanding of why social media is important to their business, how social media fits into their marketing mix, and tools to help create a social media marketing strategy that works for their small business. To register or for more information call 536-1001 or email info@plymouthnh.org.
