Cell phone tower plan irks Gilford neighbors By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
GILFORD — A proposal to erect a cellular telephone antenna tower on land owned by the Traditional Catholics of New Hampshire abutting residences on David Lewis Road and Stark Street has aroused opposition from at least two nearby property owners. New Cingular Wireless PCS, doing business as AT&T, and American Tower Corporation, LLC, the construction manager, have applied to erect a 100-foot monopole tower with 12 antennas on the southeast corner of the 148acre tract. The site would include an equipment shelter, 12-feet by 20-feet, and emergency generator within a 50-square compound surrounded by chain link fence sixfeet high and topped with barbed wire. A driveway leading from the southwest corner of David Lewis Road would provide access to the tower. The tower would stand 100 feet from the property line of two adjoining lots, one a house lot at 38 David Lewis Road owned by Kevin Lacasse and the other a vacant 5.27-acre parcel reached from Stark Street owned see tOWEr page 8

Young couple charged with running marijuana growing operation in 3-car Governor’s Island garage By Gail OBer

edly had about 100 marijuana plants growing in a three-bay garage that contained what he described as a fairly sophisticated growing operation. Inside the home, Vara said police allegedly found three to five pounds of hashish and a table that was equipped to serve as production and distribution center. He said they also
found $33,000 in cash. Vara said six guns — three handguns and three long guns — were found in the home. Two of them were allegedly loaded and he said the three pistols were located near the cash. During his request for $50,000 cash bail, Vara said what police found was “not a see POt page 11

2 killers registered as felons after escaping from Florida prison
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Within days of strolling out of prison without a hitch, two convicted killers freed by bogus paperwork went to a jail about 300 miles away and registered as felons, records showed. They were even fingerprinted, photographed and filled out paperwork to apparently keep up the ruse. Authorities are now searching for Joseph Jenkins and Charles Walker, who were mistakenly freed from a Panhandle prison within the last month. Both men were serving life in prison but were let go when authorities said forged documents duped the Corrections Department and court system and reduced their sentences to 15 years. “We’re looking at the system’s breakdown, I’m not standing here to point the finger at any one at this time,” Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said Friday as he appealed to the public to help authorities find the men. He said he believed they were still in the central Florida area. The release led prosecutors and prison offisee ESCAPE page 4

Showdown widened rift within GOP over Tea Party WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republicans’ clear defeat in the budget-debt brawl has widened the rift between the Grand Old Party and the blossoming tea party movement that helped revive it. Implored by House Speaker John Boehner to unite and “fight another day” against President Barack Obama and Democrats, Republicans instead intensified attacks on one another, an ominous sign in advance of more difficult policy fights and the 2014 midterm elections.
The tea party movement spawned by the passage of Obama’s health care overhaul three years ago put the GOP back in charge of the House and in hot pursuit of the law’s repeal. The effort hit a wall this month in the budget and debt fight, but tea partyers promised to keep up the effort. Whatever the future of the troubled law, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell vowed he would not permit another government shutdown. “I think we have now fully acquainted
our new members with what a losing strategy that is,” McConnell said in an interview with The Hill newspaper. Tea party Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas told ABC News he wouldn’t rule out using the tactic again, when the same budget and debt questions come up next year. “I will continue to do anything I can to stop the train wreck that is Obamacare,” Cruz said. That divide defined the warring Repubsee GOP page 11
Saudi Arabia protests by rejecting seat on U.N. Security Council UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Just hours after winning a coveted place on the U.N. Security Council for the first time, Saudi Arabia did a stunning about-face Friday and rejected the seat, denouncing the body for failing to resolve world conflicts such as the Syrian civil war. The unprecedented move at the United Nations appeared largely directed at Saudi Arabia’s longtime ally, the United States, reflecting more than two years of frustration.
The oil giant and the world’s superpower are at odds over a number of Mideast issues, including how Washington has handled some of the region’s crises, particularly in Egypt and Syria. It also comes as ties between the U.S. and Iran, the Saudis’ regional foe, appear to be improving somewhat. The Saudis were displeased that the U.S. backed off threats of military strikes against Syria in response to its alleged use
of chemical weapons. In Egypt, Washington has been critical of the military after it toppled President Mohammed Morsi, while Saudi Arabia has strongly backed the coup, giving billions of dollars to the new army-backed government. Saudi Arabia’s reversal surprised U.N. diplomats and officials who had just welcomed the kingdom to a two-year term on the U.N.’s most see SAUDI ARABIA page 3
Ellen De Generes gives $10k to Concord waitress who picked up tab for soldiers CONCORD (AP) — A New Hampshire waitress who picked up the lunch tab of two National Guard soldiers affected by the federal government’s shutdown has been repaid — more than 300 times over — by television star Ellen DeGeneres.

An emotional Hoidahl buried her face in her hands and thanked DeGeneres as the talk show host repeated “You’re a good person.”
DeGeneres caught wind of Hoidahl’s act of kindness when the New Hampshire National Guard posted a picture on its Facebook page. The story spread quickly online, producers saw it and invited Hoidahl to Hollywood. Ellen also gave her a 50-inch television.

2 late touchdowns bring Sachems 20-17 win over visiting Lebanon LACONIA — The high school football playoffs are still in sight as the Sachems score 13 unanswered points in the fourth quarter last night to beat Lebanon 20-17 at Bank of New Hampshire Stadium. The turning point in the fourth was when Keith Schultz stripped the ball out of running back Cameron Broughton’s hand and rambled 70 yards down the sideline for a defensive touchdown. “I saw that he was being held up and went for the ball,” Schultz said. “They are a fast team and when I stumbled around the 30 yard line I didn’t think I was going to make it. I have never had a game like this before. It was a great win.” The sophomore has five tackles two fumble recoveries and a blocked punt to complement the touchdown. “These kids are great,” said Laconia coach Craig Kozens. “They deserved this win tonight. Schultz made a heads up play late in the game to keep it close. We looked to pound the ball, which worked early, but Lebanon came out to play. We have to get back to work and prepare for Kennett next week.” Schultz’s punt block on Lebanon’s opening drive of the game created great field position for the Laconia offense. The Sachems opened up the scoring when Steven Kemos powered his way up the middle for a three yard touchdown. But Laconia’s offense would not
score again until the final quarter. Lebanon was kept off the scoreboard in the first quarter. Early in the second quarter the Raiders were looking for a spark. They found it with an end around at midfield that tied the game. The Raiders then intercepted Sachems QB Matt Swormstedt with 50 seconds remain in the half. They then drove to inside the 25 and kick a 41 yard field goal to pull ahead 10-7 at the half. Lebanon’s first drive of the second half looked to have stalled when it was third down and 15. But the Raiders QB hit wide-out Austin Pelletier at the first down marker. Pelletier slipped past two tackles and sprinted down the sideline for a 59 yard score to increase the visitor’s lead to 10. After the Schultz touchdown, the Raiders ran the clock down to 2:17 before when they had to punt. The snap sailed over the head of the punter and was recovered by none other than Schultz at the Raider’s 32. Six plays later Swormstedt hit Chris Frontiero over the middle for winning score. Laconia (now 3-4) will continue the playoff push on Friday night when they travel to Conway to take on Kennett (also 3-4). Lebanon, also in the North Conference of NHIAA Division II, stand at 2-4. Plymouth leads the conference at 6-0, pending the Bobcats’ game today against Portsmouth, which stands at 5-1.
from preceding page powerful body for the first time. Several noted that the Saudis were lobbying for support right up until the vote. Britain, Pakistan and other countries said they wanted explanations, particularly as Saudi Arabia’s U.N. Ambassador Abdallah Al-Mouallimi had told reporters following Thursday’s vote that his government took the election “very seriously” and saw it as “a reflection of a longstanding policy
in support of moderation and in support of resolving disputes in peaceful means.” Al-Mouallimi’s comments stood in sharp contrast to the strident tone of Friday’s Saudi Foreign Ministry statement, which accused the Security Council of failing on multiple fronts in the Middle East — especially in ending the Syria conflict but also in failing to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and rid the region of weapons of mass destruction.

Forrester named legislator of the year by group dedicated to reducing drug & alcohol problems
CONCORD — N.H. Senate Finance Chairman Jeanie Forrester (R-Meredith) has been named legislator of the year by New Futures, a nonprofit organization working to reduce the prevalence of drug and alcohol related problems in New Hampshire. Forrester received the honor at the group’s annual awards dinner in Concord on Thursday. The award recognizes Forrester’s efforts in support of various drug and alcohol treatment programs in the state. As a member of the Senate Finance Committee, she led the effort to include an additional $500,000 in the state’s budget for the drug and alcohol fund. The senator also serves on the Governor’s Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention, Intervention, and Treatment. Writer Sheryl Rich-Kern was also recognized at the event for her article “Hitting Bottom and the Bottom Line” which ran in Business NH Magazine and focuses on the impact New Hampshire’s substance abuse problem has on the state’s business community, taxpayers, and economy. “Senator Forrester’s success in restoring funding to the Alcohol Fund involved an intense effort on her part to educate her colleagues about the scope of the alcohol and
drug problem in New Hampshire,” said New Futures Executive Director Linda Saunders Paquette. “From the Senate, to the Governor’s Commission, to her work in the community, Senator Forrester is spreading the word about the importance of prevention, treatment and recovery supports and fighting to ensure resources are available to those who need them.” “Having worked in a substance abuse treatment facility in the past, I know firsthand the importance of funding for these support programs,” said Forrester. “Drug and alcohol abuse weakens our communities, harms our economy, and costs taxpayers millions each year as a result of increased criminal justice, health care, and other costs. Effective treatment programs can prevent these consequences by ensuring that those suffering from these diseases can get treatment and then go on to live happy, healthy, and productive lives. It is an honor to be recognized by New Futures for the work we have been able to do in this area and I look forward to continuing to work with them to address New Hampshire’s substance abuse problems head on.” New Futures is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that advocates, educates and collaborates to
ESCAPE from page 2 cials to review their records to make sure no one else had been mistakenly freed. The corrections agency also changed its policy to require officials to verify all early releases with judges. Jenkins was released Sept. 27 and registered at the Orange County jail in Orlando on Sept. 30. Walker was set free Oct. 8 and registered there three days later. Felons are required to register by law. When they do, their fingerprints are digitally uploaded to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, and a deputy at the jail verifies that they don’t have any outstanding warrants, said jail spokesman Allen Moore. By registering, Jenkins and Walker likely drew less attention to themselves.
“If there’s no hit that comes back, they’re free to go,” said Isaiah Dennard, the Florida Sheriff’s Association’s jail services coordinator. If felons do not register, a warrant is put out for their arrest, Dennard said. The sheriff said there had been some sightings of the men, and “most” of their families were cooperating, but he didn’t go into specifics about either detail. Police were offering a $5,000 reward for help and billboards were going up in the area. Authorities learned about the mistaken release when one of the murder victim’s family notified the state attorney’s office. Dennard said victims’ families are automatically notified when a felon is released, typically by a computer voice-generated phone call. It’s not clear exactly who made the fake docu-

Authorities said the paperwork in both cases was filed in the last couple of months and included forged signatures from the same prosecutor’s office and judge. The state Department of Law Enforcement and the Department of Corrections are investigating the error, but so far have not released any details. Chief Circuit Judge Belvin Perry said Thursday there were several red flags that should have attracted the attention, including that’s it uncommon for a request for sentence reduction to come from prosecutors. The Corrections Department said on Friday it verified the early release by checking the Orange County Clerk of Court’s website and calling them.

Police identify San’ton man as thief who helped himself to $40 at chocolate store
TILTON — Police have arrested the man who allegedly robbed the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory on October 15. Brady R. Gilbert, 22, whose last known address was 13 Cogswell Road in Sanbornton is charged with one count of theft — a Class A misdemeanor. Police affidavits submitted to support an arrest warrant said the store clerk told police that Gilbert came into the store that is in the Tanger Outlet Mall and bought a $2 item. When she rang up his purchase, she told police he allegedly placed one hand on the counter and reached in and took $40 from the cash register. The store clerk told police he wasn’t wearing a mask or gloves and affidavits said police were able to lift a palm print from the counter. The next day, Detective Crp. Matt Dawson said was able to identify Gilbert as a suspect and included his photo in an array and showed it to the clerk. She was able to identify Gilbert. Dawson got a warrant for his arrest on October 17 and found Gilbert in the parking lot of the McDonald’s restaurant. Gilbert appeared by video in the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division yesterday. Dawson also said the Gilbert had previously failed to show up for a unrelated firearms charge in Belknap County Superior Court. He said Gilbert was scheduled to appear in that court Monday morning because the state had filed a motion to revoke his bail on the other charge. Dawson told Judge Carroll that Gilbert had refused bail the night before and he would be satisfied with $1,500 cash. Carroll set bail at that amount. — Gail Ober

Republican cravenness & cowardice has lasted too long “We told you you would lose!” wail the Beltway bundlers of the Republican establishment. “We told you you would lose!” moan neoconservative columnists from their privileged perches on the op-ed pages of the Beltway press. “Look at what Ted Cruz and this Tea Party people did to us,” wails the GOP establishment. “Look what has happened to our brand.” And 2014 was looking wonderful. What a basket of wimps. While the political and communications strategy of the fight to defund Obama seems not to have been thought through, can someone explain what else a moral and principled Republican party could have done in the continuing resolution, other than try to defund Obamacare? Have we lost sight of what a monstrosity this is? It is an immense new entitlement program being hoisted upon a nation whose back is now breaking from Great Society entitlements. Obamacare forces Catholics to provide sterilization and abortioninducing drugs that trample upon traditional teachings about how they are to live their lives. Recent days have exposed employers cutting back workers to 29 hours, insurance premiums surging, doctors rebelling. Obamacare moves America inexorably toward a national health care system such as they have in socialist Great Britain. Finally, the rollout of Obamacare by Kathleen Sebelius’ Department of Health and Human Services has made the rollouts of Edsel and New Coke look like marketing triumphs. How could any principled Republican conservative vote to impose this moral, fiscal, social and technological disaster upon our country? Here was the recommended Beltway GOP strategy: House Republicans should vote to fund Obamacare in a clean CR. Then exploit the disaster of the rollout to show what a horror it is. This will pump up our polls and improve our field position for 2014. Then we can pick up some seats! Bottom line: Let’s vote to impose Obamacare on America and make Democrats pay the price of the calamity we voted to impose. Now there may be a more cynical strategy than deliberately doing permanent damage to your country to help your party. Right now, I just can’t think of it. A party that would do such a thing would not only not deserve office; it would raise valid questions about the reasons for its continued existence. If this is how Republicans will behave when facing a decision on moral and political principle, why would conservatives want such a crowd representing them? The Beltway GOP had best step back and take a hard look at the nation they are supposed to defend. A decades-long failure to address
mass immigration has brought to our shores scores of millions now being moved wholesale to ballot boxes to vote the Party of Reagan out of power forever. With GOP collusion, the welfare state has grown so immense — with half the nation paying no income taxes and half now reaping benefits — Republicans who stand for fiscal sanity face increasingly insuperable numbers in many states. With the Greatest Generation and Silent Generations passing on, Baby Boomers, the largest generation in history, are two years into Social Security and Medicare. Those programs are exploding, as the share of our working population is steadily sinking. Real incomes of Americans are stagnant. Since George H. W. Bush, we have run $10 trillion in trade deficits no one mentions but can be seen in the gleaming cities of Asia and East China and the corroded and collapsing infrastructure of America. Though the debt is hitting $17 trillion and the Fed prints a trillion a year to buy up paper, T-bills and mortgage-backed securities, the U.S. growth rate remains anemic by historic standards. Query: Did the Tea Party do all this to America, or was this caused by colossal Washington stupidity and legendary Wall Street greed? Republican cravenness and cowardice before the commands of political correctness has gone on so long that the natural response to capitulate now appears a conditioned reflex of the Beltway Party. Yet, how, without standing and fighting against the inexorable drive to remake our republic into a socialist democracy, where tax consumers are endlessly milking tax producers in a steadily debilitating and dying economy, do Republicans think they are going to stop this? Or is their hidden agenda simply bipartisan comity and smiling acceptance of an endless series of retreats until the outcome is irreversible? Whatever one may say of the House Republican majority at least they fought. When his troops were in a funk, FDR used to say, “Get me a bill down here I can veto!” What FDR meant was — Let’s start a fight with the Republicans; that will get the boys’ morale back up. That’s what Republicans need now. They should tell the Democrats there will be no new taxes in any budget deal, and if there is no deal, the sequester rolls on. Then they should demand that the incompetent at HHS be fired and her entire entourage with her. Unless, of course, the party fears it might be charged with waging a “war on women.” (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.)
LETTERS Bob Jones is genuine American hero & he is owed an apology To The Daily Sun, In Thursday’s Daily Sun, L.J. Siden wrote that Bob Jones was using veterans as “pawns” in his criticism of Representatives Shea-Porter and Kuster. To accuse Bob Jones as he/she did, is despicable. But Siden, who for years has childishly refused to identify his or her gender, and who frequently misrepresents what others have said or done, has once again gone over the cliff. For those who don’t know Bob Jones, here’s a little sketch of his background. Born and raised in Vermont, he graduated from Fairhaven High School, after having set the school record for touchdowns scored. It was during the time of the Vietnam war and he enlisted in the U.S. Navy and studied to become a battlefield medic. He was sent to Vietnam and assigned to a division of U.S. Marines engaged in front line duty. During that time, Jones spent considerable time under fire on the battlefields, tending to wounded Marines. He was wounded twice and, because of his heroic actions under fire, he was awarded the Bronze Star with a “V” for valor. (He still bears the consequences of those wounds.) When he returned from the war, he was assigned to St. Alban’s Naval Hospital as a medic. It was there that he met and married his wife Paula, who was also a Navy medic.
When they were honorably discharged, the Jones’ settled in New Hampshire and he was in Dartmouth’s first “Physician’s Assistant” class. After graduation, he served for a number of years in a medical practice in Meredith. He then signed on with LRGHealthcare and was responsible for the hospital’s “Vet-Link” program from its inception until his retirement late last year. He continues, as a nonpaid volunteer, assisting veterans who avail themselves of that program. The number of veterans and their families that he has helped over the years is incalculable. Jones was also one of the prime movers that established the POW-MIA weekly Thursday night vigil at Hesky Park in Meredith. That vigil remains unbroken for over 25 years and has received recognition by multiple governors of the State of New Hampshire. A noble cause to which he continues to devote his time and effort. In my lifetime, I have never met anyone who has been more sincerely dedicated to helping veterans and their families than Robert Creighton Jones. It has been my pleasure to know this genuine American hero. For Mr./Ms. Siden to refer to him as a “pawn” is shameful. An apology is owed. Bob Meade Laconia
Science is not a democratic endeavor; we can’t vote out reality To The Daily Sun, In the space of five minutes, the Weather Channel recently reported the floods in Colorado, the wildfires in California and an “unprecedented” amount of moisture in the air. Despite the fact that all of these are predicted by climate change models, there was NOT A WORD about climate change. Nearly two-thirds of voters support significant steps to address climate change now. Cleaning up power plants is a common-sense step. The EPA has the authority to protect our health from dangerous carbon pollution and should act accordingly. Industrial carbon pollution is at the highest levels in human history. The costs of inaction are already apparent: more destructive and deadly extreme weather; rising global temperatures; life-threatening diseases; and sky-
Opponents of action to cut industrial carbon pollution ignore and deny the science that tells us it is time to act. Their funding comes from corporate polluters who deny the science to protect their profits while politicians deny the science to protect their political careers. There is a virtual consensus of peer reviewed science that climate change is human caused. Science is not a democratic endeavor, we can’t vote on the reality of climate change any more than we can vote to levitate a politician. Since 1970, every $1 in investment in compliance with Clean Air Act standards has produced $4-8 in economic benefits. In N.H., a dollar invested in energy efficiency, a prime means of reducing carbon emissions, yields a $7 return. The time for action is now. Wes Golomb Professor, Energy Services

LETTERS Wealth inequality will only be made worse by Obamacare To The Daily Sun, Let’s be honest. We all know Obamacare is a disaster of biblical proportions, from its BRIBED origins to today’s colossal, sign up, computer catastrophe. Countless people have already wasted millions of hours in utter frustration watching dead, Obamacare computer screens. Americans are intelligent enough to recognize total failure when they see it. Bernadette Loesch, Kate Miller and James Veverka can dress the “Obama care pig “ in a mini skirt, high heels, hoop ear rings and smear it with lipstick from snout to curly tail but the the ugly oinker will still remain. I called out local DEMOCRAT politician Kate Miller for her INCOMPLETE remarks regarding Obamacare. SHE AGREES ! She has yet to defend herself. Her unwillingness to debate OBAMACARE signals just how bad the legislation is and how SPINELESS Democrats are to defend what they jack hammered up your backside. 1. Maybe Kate can explain how ROBBING 500 billion dollars from Medicare (another DONKEY program BANKRUPTING America in the TRILLIONS ) to fund Obamacare helps improve the availability and quality of medical care for those age 65 or older who consume most of the health care in America. How does paying doctors hundreds of billions LESS for treating those on MEDICARE help the elderly. How does putting 30 million freebies in line (likely paying the doctor more ) before those on Medicare in a profession already short capacity help the old? Obama SLASHED Medicare QUALITY to pay for OBAMACARE. It is no wonder those on MEDICARE vote REPUBLICAN overwhelmingly and surely will in the 2014 election. 2. It is not just the elderly “thrown under the bus” by Obamacare. The young of this country (age 25 to 40 ) will be economically eviscerated to the
bone. Obama decided THE YOUNG would pay for the “SICK” that have been excluded under preexisting conditions. The TYPICAL WEALTH of the “sick” person getting their health care paid will often be 10 TIMES the wealth of the person paying their bills. Don’t always assume “sick and “poor” are synonymous. They aren’t. The young are STAGGERING under record levels of college debt while Obamacare forces them to pay the health care costs of millionaires. What ever premiums the “sick” pay will be MINISCULE to their actual costs of care. 3. The number of DOCTORS willing to see Medicare and Medicaid patients is SHRINKING rapidly. Doctors simply can not afford to have 50 percent or more of their patients cost more than GOVERNMENT PAYS them and reimbursement rates plummet under Obamacare. Tell us all Kate how that helps the ELDERLY? 4. Obamacare creates more then TWENTY NEW TAXES on companies and individuals while America suffers the LOWEST percentage of the population working in 30 years under. Higher taxation KILLS JOB CREATION and sends record numbers to WELFARE HANDOUTS. There is no mystery why WELFARE and POVERTY are at records under OBAMA and Kate Miller. 5. Who thinks a new, HIGH tax on EVERY medical device maker costing BILLIONS improves the likelihood of new discoveries? These companies have all stated higher taxes will SLOW new medical DISCOVERY and SLOW employment in the one part of the economy with any life in it. That means we all live with MORE PAIN, LONGER! Thanks Kate! 6. Three presidents representing the largest unions in America wrote letters to Obama last month all screaming that Obama care’s 30 hour work mandate was killing the 40-hour full-time work
week unions had worked the last 100 years to accomplish. UNIONS demand Obama care be changed in so may ways it would render it meaningless. Why Bernadette? 7. If Obamacare is so GREAT, why the hell is just about anyone important in Washington D.C. INCLUDING the programs NAME SAKE exempted from it. WHY Kate? 8. Eighty percent of Americans are going to WAKE UP soon to discover they have been completely “HAD” by Democrats, the same way a sheep is by a wolf. Health care is only going to cost LESS to a very narrow segment of America. The other 80 percent will pay more than ever, for LESS THAN EVER. The largest burden of increased Obamacare cost will fall to the MIDDLE CLASS and the young. The wealth inequality of America so often politicized by Democrats will as usual only be worsened by Obamacare. I take all bets to the contrary in any amount. Open your wallet Kate, money talks and B.S. walks. You do a lot walking.
9. People will soon discover if they want anything that is even remotely “AFFORDABLE” under Obamacare they risk monstrous deductibles as high as $12,000 per year. They are going to find their doctor may not be in the program they want. They will find the hospital they want may not be in the program either. People are going to say “I HAVE BEEN DUPED “. Obamacare for the most part is the same, limited access, HMO plan I had 10 years ago, except it offers even less and I am paying five times more for it. We turned health care upside down because it was expensive. Now it is going to be even MORE expensive to the vast majority of Americans and they will get even less for it. The poor will become poorer as they do after every DONKEY IDEA. Nothing costs Americas MIDDLE CLASS MORE than when Democrats offer stuff for FREE to BUY ELECTIONS. You have been HAD again by the donkey my friends. Tony Boutin Gilford
All they can tell me about accessing healthcare.gov is to keep trying To The Daily Sun, Regulators in New Hampshire, Washington and Pennsylvania are taking actions against companies that are building health care websites. Regulators have warned these companies that the websites could confuse people trying to get on the states health care exchanges. However, most people should not be confused as these websites probably work. You definitely know when you are on the healthcare.gov website, it does not work. Here is my story: — After 12 tries, completed the applications. — Was unsuccessful 32 times that I tried to purchase insurance. — Called ‘Help Line’, they told me to keep trying to buy insurance on Healthcare.gov. — Kept trying to buy insurance on
Healthcare.gov, but finally gave up. — Called Anthem (carrier for NH), got an agent who advised me to keep trying to buy insurance on Healthcare. gov. However, she gave me a direct phone number to call in two weeks and I could signup with Anthem. Senators Ayotte, Shaheen, and Reps Shea-Porter and Kuster are getting a 72-75 percent subsidy for Obamacare. Why is it good enough for us but not for Congress and its staff? FYI, Kuster, Ayotte and Shaheen are rich (by President Obama’s definition). In November 2014, we need to vote out of office, Senator Shaheen, and Reps Shea-Porter and Kuster. When Congress passes a law, it should apply to all of the people of the United States including Congress and its staff. Jim Mayotte Sanbornton

TOWER from page one by Roger Baron. It would also be the same distance from residential properties on Stark Street, but because the lots are relatively deep and the homes are on the street, it would be less obtrusive. “I’m very opposed to it,” Lacasse said flatly. He explained that the driveway will run alongside his yard and the tower will overshadow his property, obstructing its view. He expressed concerns about the health affects of high frequency radio waves. “It will lower the value of our property,” he said. “We don’t want that monstrosity of a tower in our backyard.” Baron said that he purchased the lot with the intention of eventually building a retirement home. Since the property is intersected by a brook and dotted with wetlands the buildable area is confined to less than two acres in the northwest corner of the lot nearest the site of the proposed tower. The tower, he explained, would be 100 feet from his property line, as close as permitted. “If I built a house, it would be in the tower,” he remarked. Like Lacasse,
Baron believes the tower would diminish the value of his property. Both Baron and Lacasse said because the tract owned by the Traditional Catholics stretches over 148 acres, there is no need to place the tower so close to neighboring properties. “If they were putting it in the middle of their lot,” Baron said, “we wouldn’t be having this conversation. Instead,” he continued, “they’re putting it in the one place where it impacts the most abutters. I don’t really feel that is being a good neighbor.” “With all that land,” echoed Lacasse, “the could find a place to put it without affecting their neighbors.” The Planning Board is scheduled to hold a public hearing on the site plan for the cellular tower on Monday, October 21 while the very next day the Zoning Board of Adjustment is scheduled to hold a public hearing on New Cingular Wireless PCS’s request for a special exception, without which the project cannot proceed. Baron and Lacasse, who only received notices of

HIKE from page one Forillon at the tip of the Gaspe Peninsula in Quebec, a stroll of some 4,000 miles. “In June 2006, I dipped my toe in the Atlantic Ocean and headed west,” said Gregoire, who proceeded to walk 284 miles through Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and New York to Lake Placid in the Adirondacks. Although “through hikers” have crossed the country in a single trip, he broke the journey into segments, 14 altogether — two a year but for two years — each of about 300 miles. Gregoire said each trip began with a fresh pair of hiking boots, but after wrestling with blisters he switched to Teva sandals halfway across the country. But, the walking stick that carried him along the Appalachian Trail also took him from ocean to ocean. He said that walked about three miles per hour and covered approximately 17 miles a day. With a tent, food and utensils in his back pack, Gregoire said he camped and cooked in RV parks and farmers field from time to time, but frequently passed through small towns to get a square meal and soft bed. “I met some of the finest people in bars,” he remarked, adding that he was given advice about places to eat and stay and upon telling his story was stood drinks. “I had not a single problem with people,” Gregoire said, “and relatively few with animals, except for some stray dogs.” He encounter a few rattlesnakes on the roadside and, in Glacier National Park in Montana a grizzly bear. “He stood on his hind legs when he heard me, but I talked to him and he went back to the huckleberries.” Each day Gregoire telephoned his wife Jane, a native of Laconia and his high school sweetheart at St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Dover, who transcribed their conversation and wrote a journal entry every third day. He said that the journal of his travels are currently being distributed to around 170 people, including many of those he met on his journey. When Gregoire reached the Pacific he was joined by 13 classmates from the class of 1969 at Princeton University, along with family and friends who shared the last couple of miles with him, erupting in cheers when he doffed his socks and sandals and stepped into the ocean. Now 65, he returned to New Hampshire after a career as a financier in New Jersey, Gregoire has begun pondering what to do next. “I haven’t figured that out yet,” he said, “but I thinking of hiking the the 25 or 30 highest mountains in the lower 48 states, all in California, Colorado and Washington, from base to summit. I think I could do four or six a year and be done in five or six years.”

the public hearings in the past 10 days, had already arranged to travel out-of-state next week and are both unable to attend either hearing. Planning Director John Ayer said yesterday that the hearing before the Planning Board will be deferred until November because no representative of New Cingular Wireless PCS attended a preliminary meeting to review the site plan and the firm failed to notify all the required abutters. Dave Andrade, the Code Enforcement Officer who manages the ZBA, could not be reached. To qualify for a special exception a project must comply with six requirements, among them that it is “not detrimental, injurious or offensive to the neighborhood.”

Model railroading center stage in Laconia this weekend By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — Model trains have been a life-long fascination for many of those attending a regional convention of of the National Model Railroad Association which is being held at the Margate Resort this weekend. Some 300 people are on hand for the weekend event, which is hosted by the Seacoast Division of The Northeastern Region of the National Model Railroad Association. ‘’It took us two years to put together this convention,’’ said Erich Whitney of Derry, convention chairman, who said that coordinating all of programs and exhibits and arrangements for visiting local railroad related attractions takes a lot of time. ‘’We’re really excited to hold a convention in an area which has such a great railroad history,’’, said Whitney. He said that many of those attending were making visits to the Lakeport freight station and the historic Laconia Railroad Station, as well as stations in Ashland, Plymouth and Meredith and taking rail excursions offered by the Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad, the Hobo Railroad and even as far away as Conway to ride on the Conway Scenic Railroad. While there were any clinics and presentations taking place at the Margate, the major focus of activity were the on-site operating sessions at which

modular model railroad systems were set up and operated on several large oval track configurations. One of the most impressive modulars was an eight-foot long, 250-pound mountain scene set up by John Flanders of Clinton, Mass., president of the Ashburnham Modular Railroad Club, which has about 200 members. The modular features some 250 snow-covered trees, tunnels, a winding road where a snow plow is being operated and a wrecker has arrived to help a motorist who has skidded off the road. There’s also wildlife, skiers and even an abominable snowman lurking on the mountain side. see next page

from preceding page ‘’It took two years to build,’’ says Flanders, who unveiled his creation last year at a convention in Springfield, Mass. Flanders, who grew up next to the railroad tracks in Clinton, said that model railroads have been his life-long passion and that he has about $40,000 worth of trains and over 80-feet of modular layouts which he’s built over the years. A union carpenter who works out of Worcester, Mass., Flanders says that he enjoys the conventions as a way to stay in touch with those who share his enthusiasm. Whitney said that he got into model railroading about four years ago thanks to the enthusiasm his children, Brenna, 15, and Colin, 12, developed for model trains. ‘’Our kids got involved in trains and we spend a lot of time with them going to train shows and to train sites all over New England and New York to ride on local railroads,’’ said Whitney. An engineer at a government research center in Bedford, Mass, Whitney says that he enjoys working on model railroad projects with his children. ‘’It brings out your creative side. You get to use both sides of your brain,’’ said Whitney, who said that his daughter has an amazing ability to conceptualize layouts and create them and was enjoying the convention. ‘’There’s a generation gap in model railroading. Most of the people here are long-time modelers but we’d like to see the hobby came back and young people are the key,’’ said Whitney.
This rented home on Governor’s Island was the alleged sight of a marijuana growing operation that was raided local, state, federal police Thursday morning. Authorities said three to ﬁve pounds of hashish, 100 marijuana plants, six guns, and $33,000 were seized from the rented home. A growing operation was said to have been located in the 3-car garage on the left. (Laconia Daily Sun photo/Gail Ober)
POT from page one run of the mill” growing operation. He said there were commercial grade fans, a watering system and a separate electrical box that LaPlante allegedly told police he installed. The two had apparently been living in the home, which is rented, since 2010. Gilford assessing records obtained on-line list the owner as a trust whose primary trustee lives in Jackson, Wyoming. During Noftle’s bail argument, Atty. John Bresaw said she was not a flight risk and Vara’s request for $50,000 cash-only bail was punitive — meaning it was tantamount to a punishment rather than to ensure her future appearance in court and/or to protect the public safety. Bresaw also argued that Noftle has no prior arrest record, that she works in a local restaurant and is
a graduate of Catholic University with a 4-year degree in Health and Wellness. He said she is also a certified personal trainer. He also argued that marijuana and its derivative hashish are on the low end of the drug spectrum as compared to methamphetamine, heroin, and cocaine and although he assured the court that he wasn’t trying to minimize the seriousness of the charge, his client was none-the-less not a danger to the public. “I’m not arguing if marijuana is appropriate or not,” he said, asking Judge Jim Carroll that if he feels he must set some kind of cash bail, that it should be in the $1,000 to $5,000 range. LaPlante’s lawyer, Jared Bedrick made a similar argument for his client saying that if he were to be released on personal recognizance or low cash bail, see next page

Police allege woman was drunk when she caused crash near airport
GILFORD — A woman who was involved in a minor traffic accident on Lake Shore Road (Rte. 11) Thursday morning was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated. Police said Debra S. Goeller, 63, of Valley Street in Laconia was driving east toward Alton at 11:52 a.m. and attempted to make a left-hand turn into what police described as a gated dirt turn off that goes to the Laconia Muncipal Airport runway. Lt. Kris Kelley, who responded to the crash, said the car that was driving behind Goeller tried to pull around her on the right, but she apparently changed
her mind regarding the turn and continued to head east on the road. He said the two cars then collided. Goeller had a passenger in her car and Kelley said the other driver was alone. No one was injured. Kelley said Goeller is new to the Lakes Region and that her prior address is in New Mexico. A person is charged with aggravated DWI if he or she causes an accident or if his or her blood alcohol level is greater that .16, which is twice the legal driving limit. Kelley said both circumstances were alleged factors in Thursday morning’s crash.
from preceding page that he would be unlikely to be able to reproduce the operation he was accused of running. Bedrick said LaPlante’s parents were in the court, that he was a graduate of Laconia Christian School, and had attended college. He said LaPlante is a welder by trade. “This court should look at what could possibly happened when he’s out,” Bedrick said. “He has no convictions, no arrests, no nothing.” He said LaPlante agreed to live at his parents home in Gilford where no similar kind of alleged behavior would be allowed. He also said LaPlante saw the police and immediately put his hands up. Vara agreed that both LaPlante and Noftle cooperated with police during the arrest. Both defense attorneys argued separately that corporate surety should be an option for posting bail but Carroll said no and stipulated that a source of any cash bail must be disclosed. Carroll said he agreed to a certain degree with
Bresaw that marijuana possession is a “political football” but that LaPlante and Noftle are accused of running a commercial operation that is illegal both federally and locally. He also said people can look sophisticated and cultured but sometimes their appearances can be “a Trojan horse.” Affidavits supplied by the N.H. Drug Task Force said little except that there had been a “cooperating individual” who allegedly told law enforcement on during the week of October 13 about the operation. Paperwork said Carroll signed a search warrant on October 16 and police raided the house the next morning at 9:15 a.m. At 4:40 p.m. LaPlante had posted bail and Noftle remained incarcerated in the Belknap County House of Corrections. Lt. Kris Kelley of the Gilford Police said only that the investigation is ongoing and additional charges may be forthcoming.

MOULTONBOROUGH — On Monday, October 21, join the Lakes Region Conservation Trust (LRCT) for a fall hike along the Brook Walk, a historic and scenic trail within LRCT’s Castle in the Clouds Conservation Area. The Lakes Region Conservation Trust has conserved over 22,000 acres in the Lakes Region in over 120 properties since its founding in 1979. The Castle in the Clouds Conservation Area in Moultonborough and Tuftonboro, totaling over 5,000 conserved acres, is the largest property owned by LRCT. The 30 miles of trails spread throughout this conservation area are maintained by a dedicated and enthusiastic team of LRCT volunteers. During this guided excursion, participants will hike beside impressive gorges, following the course of Shannon Brook as it flows over rapids and seven spectacular cascades. LRCT’s knowledgeable guides will share some of the interesting history of the Brook Walk, including when and why it was first established by B.F. Shaw long ago and some of the poems of the great poets who were inspired by it. Historic photos and postcard images will also be shared with participants along the way. This easy-moderate 2 mile hike will follow the Brook Walk to the Shannon Brook Trail, looping back to Shannon Pond. The total elevation gain during the hike will be 300 feet. Participants will be asked to arrive at 9:45 a.m. with a 10 a.m. hike start time. The trip will return at approximately 11:30 a.m. The Lakes Region Conservation Trust (LRCT) offers guided excursions ― hiking, paddling, and snowshoeing trips ― year-round on and to conserved properties throughout the Lakes Region. All LRCT guided excursions are free to all. For more information about guided excursions or the Lakes Region Conservation Trust, visit www.lrct.org.

‘The New England Life of Cartoonist Bob Montana’ to speak at Meredith Library
MEREDITH — The Meredith Public Library is happy to host Carol Lee Anderson as she presents her newest book The New England Life of Cartoonist Bob Montana: Beyond the Archie Comic Strip’’ on Tuesday, October 22 at 6:30 p.m. Cartoonist Bob Montana was made famous with his Archie comic strip and resided in Meredith for many years with his wife and children. “I saw a strip that had Gunstock in it and I asked myself how many times
he did this,” said Anderson. “I started looking at the old ‘Archie’ comics and we found a lot of Lakes Region references. Many times he would include people from Meredith and surrounding towns.” Anderson decided to focus on this aspect of Montana’s life for her book. Learn more about Bob Montana’s life in Meredith and what influence Meredith had on his work. Light refreshments will be served and Carol will be selling and signing copies of her book.

Les Miserables on stage at Plymouth State University next week
PLYMOUTH — Students in the Department of Music, Theatre, and Dance at Plymouth State University will present a musical theatre version of Victor Hugo’s famous story Les Miserables, October 24–27 in the Hanaway Theatre at the Silver Center for the Arts. The Tony Award-winning musical is the ultimate romantic story of oppression, justice, freedom, duty and longing. The Broadway production of Les Miserables premiered in 1987 and remains the fourth longest-running Broadway show of all time. After spending years in prison for stealing a loaf of bread, Jean Valjean is released and discovers that despite his best attempts to live a good life, it is impossible to leave his past behind. No one will hire the former convict. Against a backdrop of the revolution brewing in France, Valjean finds himself pursued by his former jailor, Inspector Javert. Honor, love and humanity are celebrated in the heart-wrenching finale of this mega-musical with a popular score of beautiful melodies and stirring anthems that includes I Dreamed a Dream, Master of the House and On My Own. PSU faculty member Sharon Paquette is directing the production, which she says poses a range of challenges, from meeting patrons’ preconceived expectations for this familiar show, to getting all 37 cast members on stage for ensemble numbers, to guiding students as they learn the intricacies of blending the music and stage movement. The show is sung all the

way through—there is no spoken dialog. Paquette says that along with music director Professor Kathleen Arecchi and choreographer Lisa Travis, she is pushing the actors to find the grittiness of the story. “We are not sugar coating it at all. Each day we realize how many of the themes in the play and novel are still plaguing our country, and we work with the students to think about that and include those thoughts process in their creation process.” She says the students are working diligently, have wonderful ideas and are courageous. “It’s their passion,” Paquette says. Principal players in the cast include: Mike Dodge, a senior music major from Northwood as Jean Valjean; Brad Fernald, a senior communication studies major from Hudson as Inspector Javert; Eben Brown, a senior music education major from Dorchester as Thenardier; and Sam St. Jean, a junior theatre

Thenardier. Nineteen other students depict multiple ensemble roles.

Curvey Scholars meet with benefactors WOLFEBORO — Over dessert at Brewster Head of School Mike Cooper and wife Andrea’s residence recently, James C. Curvey, vice chairman of Fidelity Investments, and his wife, Shirley ,met the three youngest Curvey Scholars. They offered advice to all the scholars as they move into the new school year at Brewster Academy, and Curvey fielded questions from some of the students. Each year, three incoming local freshmen are awarded Curvey Scholarships, thanks to the generosity of the Curvey family who reside in Alton. This year’s freshman scholars are Roy Gardiner of Gilford and Tara Fitzpatrick and Catriona Lennon of Wolfeboro. Recalling Jim Curvey’s commencement speech to the Class of 2013 and his focus on the importance of rela-
tionships, one student asked Curvey how his own relationships have shaped him. Curvey talked about the importance of building relationships and making connections in the workplace. ‘’Find the people that will provide you with the best management that you can learn from, and when you are asked to do three things – do four, ‘’he said. Another question for Curvey: does he think technology, such a big part of students’ lives today, is positive or negative. He sees both the positives and negatives. ‘’It changes so fast – while we sleep – and it is filled with opportunity to be creative and entrepreneurial.”Take advantage of that, but keep a balance in your lives. Don’t forget about the importance of personal relationships.” he said.

Lakes Region Real Estate Market Report / Roy Sanborn
September waterfront sales report There were 18 waterfront home sales on Winnipesaukee in September at an average price of $1,114,292 and a median price point of $652,000. That’s up 13 sales from last September but the average sales price is down from $1.37 million. So far this year there have been 103 sales on the big lake at an average price of $921,565. For the first nine months of 2012 there were just 94 transactions but at a higher average sales price of $1.004 million. So the total number of sales is up 9 percent but the average sales price is down 8 percent. The average time on the market for the sales in 2013 was 168 days which is a lot better than the 237 days on market reported for sales in the same period in 2012, but you must remember many of these properties were listed multiple times so those numbers are imprecise to begin with. The Winnipesaukee entry level award this past month goes to the property at 12 Farmington Road in Alton. This renovated, 1910 two bedroom cottage is fairly roomy with 1,848 square feet of living space and although it is across the street from the water it has a separate lot with its own waterfront, dock , and small boathouse/cabana. It really looks pretty nice in the pictures! This home was offered at $285,000 and sold for $275,000 after 95 days on the market. It has an assessed value of $177,400. The home at 267 Dockham Shore Road in Gilford represents the median price point sale last month. This property consists of a 1912 vintage, three bedroom, one bath lake cottage on a .59 acre lot with 120’ of sandy frontage and a 8’x40’ crib dock. Now this property had been on the market for a little while. It was listed originally in July, 2008 for $1.25 million, and was subsequently re-listed five more times for a total of 1069 days before selling at $695,000. This kind of shows you how the data shown in the MLS for the number days on market might not tell the real story. Anyway, the property is assessed at $869,730 so the new owner must feel like he got a deal. He already has the

property back on the market for $1.499 million with several design options for a brand new lake home. The highest dollar sale on Winnipesaukee last month was at 47 Shore Road in Gilford. This 7,000 square foot contemporary home was built in 2009 by Skiffington Homes. It features all the requisite amenities and high quality finishes expected in a Skiffington Home. There’s a custom gourmet kitchen, a two story great room with stone fireplace and views of the lake, a first floor master suite with separate sitting area and fireplace, three ensuites upstairs, a lower level family room, a huge post and beam porch, and of course a large deck for taking in the south west sun. This property was first listed in January 2007 for $2.995 million and has been on the market a total of 2,323 days before finding a buyer at $2.4 million. It is currently assessed at $1.69 million. Very, very nice... There were three sales on Winnisquam in September ranging from $210,000 for a 1945 vintage, three bedroom cottage with 50’ of frontage at 97 Tucker Shore Road in Belmont to $740,000 for a 4,460 square foot contemporary, six bedroom, four bath home built in 2002 at 23 Lakeside Drive in Sanbornton. This property had great broad views of Winnisquam and 100’of frontage. It also had some water damage that kept in on the market for 572 days before a buyer stepped up. It is currently assessed at $721,500. Up on Squam, there was only one sale last month but it was a nice one! This property is located at 40 Bean Cove Road in Moultonborough and is a 5,000 square foot Adirondack built in 2003 on a 10.7 acre lot with 1,035 feet of frontage. This home is literally just a few steps to the water and situated on a peninsula that affords amazing views of Moultonborough Bay. This 5,000 square foot open concept home was designed by local architect Chris Williams and features three en-suite bed see next page

John D. O’Connor, 72 NORTH SANDWICH – John D. O’Connor, 72, of North Sandwich, died Monday, October 7, 2013 at Lakes region General Hospital. Despite convincing everyone that he would eventually die due to his heart condition, it was not meant to be. John dealt with pancreatic cancer and succumbed to pneumonia. He was born on June 10, 1941 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the son of John P. and Agnes (Daly) O’Connor. John worked for several years installing fire suppression equipment and retired as president of his own company. He went on to work in other areas of interest, such as business consulting and real estate before his health interfered. Throughout his life, John was an athlete with many accomplishments in semi-pro football and golf. His enthusiasm for the two sports never wavered. He was known as a true gentleman. John’s family would like to extend their deepest appreciation to the many medical pro-
fessionals that tried to help him with his complicated medical history. The family would like to also express their gratitude to the caring and empathetic staff of LRGH and Central NH VNA and Hospice.

Page 20 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, October 19, 2013
Dear Annie: I dated “Carol” for more than eight years. I loved her and wanted to marry her. The problem was her children (now aged 37 and 42), who have not grown up to be mature adults. Carol knew from the beginning that if we ever broke up, it would be because of them. I spent every weekend with her. The kids had a tendency to go through my personal belongings when we were on a date and when we slept. I had to hide my checkbook, wallet, truck and house keys. Her kids still live there and put forth zero effort to make it on their own. They have no interest in facing the realities of life and simply sponge off their mother. They don’t realize that when Mom passes away (one of these days), they will have to face what they’ve been avoiding for years. Her kids are nothing more than liars and thieves. I loved Carol very much, and they destroyed our relationship. I am hoping she will see my letter. -- Anonymous Dear Anonymous: We hope you realize that it is Carol who bears most of the responsibility for permitting this behavior from her children. If she truly wanted them out of the house, they would be out. Parents do a grave disservice to their children when they encourage such dependence. It is both selfish and lazy parenting. And Carol’s children seem particularly untrustworthy, as well. Yes, they will have difficulty when she can no longer provide for them, but we worry about what could happen to Carol should she become ill or infirm. Those kids are unlikely to put their mother’s welfare above their own interests. We recommend you give her the number for Adult Protective Services in your state (neac.aoa.gov or call the Eldercare Locator at 1-800-677-1116). She may need it someday. Dear Annie: My husband and I are very social and have several groups of friends. Lately, one of these friends has
started to make every get-together a potluck. Even for special occasions such as birthdays, the hostess asks each guest to bring a food item. Many times, she actually assigns dishes. I’m starting to dread these invitations. What happened to throwing a party and providing refreshments for your guests? Or at least waiting for your guest to offer? Most of these friends are in their 50s and 60s, and most live quite comfortably, so it’s not as if they cannot afford to host. I know I have the option of not accepting the invitations, but we enjoy the company, and I hate to miss the social activity. Am I being a scrooge, or is this trend rather tacky? -- Fed Up with Potluck Dear Fed Up: Yes, it is tacky to “host” a party and expect others to provide the refreshments, unless this is agreed upon in advance. However, your friends’ financial situation may be less rosy than you think, and one way to hide this while still entertaining friends is to make everything potluck. If you enjoy these get-togethers, you may as well play along, although you might offer a dish you actually want to bring. Dear Annie: I’d like to say one more word in favor of adult children calling their parents daily. One size does not fit all. Three years ago, I found out I have terminal cancer, and at about the same time, my husband left me after 31 years of marriage. After my husband left, my father, for whom I’d been caregiver for four years, passed away. My adult daughter lives in the same city, and we speak daily. My married adult son lives about 1,000 miles away, and we speak, text or email every few days. My daughter ’s daily calls became my saving grace. Without our conversations and constant closeness, I may not have had the drive to battle my disease and continue on as I have. -- Jacksonville, Fla.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). One does not have to be experienced to possess a radiant intelligence. Today’s wisdom comes from the mouths of babes. Of course, it’s your expert interpretation that makes it especially relevant. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When someone you don’t particularly respect becomes successful, it’s too easy to write it off as good luck. But look deeper into the methods and strategies, and you could become a serious competitor. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Knowing what you believe can be limiting. Besides, how can you know for sure until you’re tested? You may prefer to leave your mind open to the possibilities, if only because it’s easier given your current circumstance. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 19). You’ll take better care of yourself and others. You’ll build strong, fruitful relationships while establishing your own identity. November boosts your authority. In December, your plans will be disrupted by something happy, but still, it knocks you off course a bit. To get back on track you must be vigilant. Aquarius and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 13, 34, 27, 19 and 50.
by Chad Carpenter
ARIES (March 21-April 19). There are times when you patently disagree with the role that life is trying to cast you in. These are moments of choice. You can always politely decline. And don’t worry -- life will find someone else to cast in that role! TAURUS (April 20-May 20). For every sweet, there’s a sour to balance out the taste and keep everyone from going into sugar shock. That’s why you take a bit of negativity in stride. Being too good all of the time is boring! GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your energy level will be higher than usual, and you may find it difficult to control. If you find yourself feeling anxious with nothing to pin it on, consider taking it as a sign that you really need a break. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Deciding whom to befriend and/or love is one of the most impactful decisions you can make. Don’t go haphazardly into relationships. It’s best when your head and heart work in tandem. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A high profile comes with a high level of responsibility. Right now, it’s a burdensome reality. In the future, you may decide to slip under the radar so no one will bother you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You want to do work that contributes beauty to the world, but you also want to make money. The two desires may not seem to easily mesh, but work at it a bit longer. There is a way to fulfill both wants. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have a joyful spirit, and therefore the world seems more interesting to you. Whatever you focus on, you awaken the joyful soul resting inside of that person, place or thing. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). People say that time changes things. It seems to you that you’re the one changing things, and time is greedily taking all of the credit. That’s why you’re justified in pointing out exactly what you’ve done. Don’t forget to take a bow. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your instincts are good, so you need to trust them. Act when the impulse is fiery inside you -and don’t wait for it to cool, or your action may as well not have been executed at all.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Saturday, Oct. 19, the 292nd day of 2013. There are 73 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 19, 1987, the stock market crashed as the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged 508 points, or 22.6 percent in value, to close at 1,738.74. On this date: In 1765, the Stamp Act Congress, meeting in New York, drew up a declaration of rights and liberties. In 1781, British troops under Gen. Lord Cornwallis surrendered at Yorktown, Va., as the American Revolution neared its end. In 1812, French forces under Napoleon Bonaparte began their retreat from Moscow. In 1864, Confederate Gen.
