Chief says rash of Laconia fires are all ‘suspicious’ BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — Fire Chief Ken Erickson said yesterday that the eight fires that lit the city from one Saturday to the next, including two major building fires, are all considered “suspicious” and under investigation. The spate of fires began shortly before 3 a.m. on Sunday, September 22 when one fire destroyed a large, multi-tenant com-
mercial building at 161 Court Street while a second charred a garage on Bay Street and continued this past weekend with three minor fires around Water Street, another that damaged Pitman’s Freight Room on New Salem Street and third that burned the former Christmas Island Motel on Weirs Boulevard. “I’m definitely very concerned,” said Erickson, who said that along with mem-
bers of his department and local police officials, the Office of the State Fire Marshall and federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) are participating in the investigation. “There were eleven people working the scene at Christmas Island until 2 p.m. on Sunday,” he said. Erickson said the most recent fires began around 1 a.m. on Saturday morning as firesee FIRES page 4

WRENTHAM, Mass. (AP) — Former Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown has put his Massachusetts home on the market, further fueling speculation about his political future. An open house was held Sunday at the 3,020-square-foot, fourbedroom Colonial in Wrentham. The asking price is $559,900. Brown refused to disclose why he’s selling, telling The Republican newspaper of Springfield that “it’s personal.” Brown and his wife, television reporter Gail Huff, raised two daughters in the home. They also have a vacation home in Rye, N.H. The Massachusetts house was a key part of Brown’s man-of-thepeople image, along with his barn coat and pickup truck, in 2010 when in an upset he won the Senate seat previously held by Democrat Edward M. Kennedy. He lost to Democrat Elizabeth see BROWN page 10

deal in site on eve of federal government (partial) shutdown
WASHINGTON (AP) — A threatened government shutdown imminent, House Republicans scaled back their demands to delay the nation’s health care law Monday night as the price for essential federal funding, but President Barack Obama and Democrats rejected the proposals as quickly as they were made. “We’re at the brink,” said Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md. On a long day and night in the Capitol, the Senate torpedoed one GOP attempt to tie government financing to changes in “Obamacare.” House Republicans countered with a second despite unmistakable signs their unity was fraying — and Senate Democrats stood by to reject it, as well. The stock market dropped on fears that political gridlock between the White
House and a tea party-heavy Republican Party would prevail, though analysts suggested significant damage to the national economy was unlikely unless a shutdown lasted more than a few days. Still, a shutdown would send hundreds of thousands of workers home and inconvenience millions of people who rely on federal services or are drawn to the nation’s parks and other attractions. Some critical parts of the government — from the military to air traffic controllers — would remain open. As lawmakers squabbled, President Barack Obama spoke bluntly about House Republicans. “You don’t get to extract a ransom for doing your job, for doing what you’re supposed to be doing anyway, or just because there’s a law there that you don’t
like,” he said. Speaking of the health care law that undergoes a major expansion on Tuesday, he said emphatically, “That funding is already in place. You can’t shut it down.” House Speaker John Boehner responded a few hours later on the House floor. “The American people don’t want a shutdown and neither do I,” he said. Yet, he added, the new health care law “is having a devastating impact. ... Something has to be done.” For all the Republican defiance, it appeared that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and fellow Democrats had the upper hand in the fast-approaching end game, and that Republicans might soon have to decide whether to allow the government to remain open — or come away empty-handed from a bruising struggle see SHUTDOWN page 4
2 Marine generals forced to retire over Taliban attack in Afghanistan
WASHINGTON (AP) — In a rare move, the top Marine on Monday forced two generals into retirement after concluding they should be held to account for failing to secure a base in Afghanistan against a Taliban attack that killed two Marines. Gen. James Amos, the commandant of the Marine Corps, said in announcing his decision that Maj. Gen. Charles M. Gurganus and Maj. Gen. Gregg A.

ing British-run airfield in southwestern Afghanistan that was the Taliban target. The Sept. 14, 2012, attack by 15 Taliban fighters caught the Marines by surprise and resulted in the deaths of Lt. Col. Christopher K. Raible, 40, and Sgt. Bradley W. Atwell, 27. The Taliban also destroyed six Marine Harrier fighter jets valued at $200 million and badly damaged others. It was one of the most stunning and damaging attacks of the war. Fourteen of the 15 attackers were killed; one was captured.
Gurganus, who was the top American commander in that region of Afghanistan at the time, did not order a formal investigation after the attack. In June, Amos asked U.S. Central Command to investigate, and he said he decided to take action against the two generals after reviewing the results of that investigation. “While I am mindful of the degree of difficulty the Marines in Afghanistan faced in accomplishing a demanding combat missee GENERALS page 8

He said that as Captain Landry and his crew were returning to the station shortly after 2 a.m. they received a call of an alarm activation at Pitman’s Freight Room, where they found flames from a fire outside the building reaching to the interior. Erickson said that although firefighters stopped the fire before it reached the ceiling of the wooden frame structure to spare the building, the damage could run to $20,000. At 8:48 p.m. on Saturday numerous callers reported fire at the Christmas Island Motel. Firefighters from the Weirs Beach Station arrived within four minutes to find much of the two-story, wood-framed building ablaze. Captain Kirk Beattie sounded a second alarm while firefighters aboard the engine from the Weirs ran two hoses from a hydrant in front of the nearby Christmas Island Steakhouse, which poured 1,000 gallons of water a minute on the fire. The ladder truck from Central Station, supplied by an engine from Gilford, added another 1,200 gallons per minute while another engine from Central Station laid hose from a hydrant near Stonecrest

SHUTDOWN from page 2 with Obama. Some Republicans balked, moderates and conservatives alike. Rep. Phil Gingrey of Georgia said it felt as if Republicans were retreating, given their diminishing demands, and Rep. Scott Rigell of Virginia said there was not unanimity when the rank and file met to discuss a next move. Yet for the first time since the showdown began
more than a week ago, there was also public dissent from the Republican strategy that has been carried out at the insistence of lawmakers working in tandem with GOP Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas. Rep. Charles Dent, R-Pa., said he was willing to vote for stand-alone legislation that would keep the government running and contained no health carerelated provisions. “I would be supportive of it, and I believe the votes are there in the House to pass it at that point,” the fifth-term congressman said. Other Republicans sought to blame Democrats for any shutdown, but Dent conceded that Republicans would bear the blame, whether or not they deserved it. Hours before the possible shutdown, the Senate voted 54-46 to reject the House-passed measure that would have kept the government open but would have delayed implementation of the health care law for a year and permanently repealed a medical device tax that helps finance it. In response, House Republicans sought different concessions in exchange for allowing the government to remain open. They called for a one-year delay in a requirement in the health care law for individuals to purchase coverage.

Some get it backwards A few months back, President Obama, during a political speech, somewhat smugly commented to businesses, “You didn’t build that.”, and he went on to say that it was the government that built the roads and bridges and provided the education to workers, and so on. It may have been smooth political talk but it lost sight of the fact that none of those government “contributions” would have been possible had it not been for the tax revenues that emanated from the businesses he was trying to disparage. As an aside, the current administration has only 8 percent of its advisors with backgrounds in the business community. The historical average, Democrat or Republican, is around 50 percent. Perhaps that was a factor in the president undervaluing those people, those entrepreneurs, who risked all because they believed there was a market need they could fill. It was they who built this country, not the government. They took the risks, they competed, and the strong survived, and filled the market needs of the people. Their achievements are what led this country to become the most prosperous nation in the world. Using Henry Ford as an example, we find an entrepreneur who literally changed the world. He took the risk, and all that that entailed, to build an automobile . . . before there were (government built) roads and bridges and super highways. Mind you, when Ford began, there were only 8,000 cars and 144 miles of paved roads in the entire country. It wasn’t the government largesse that made Ford a success, it was Ford and others like him that spurred growth that provided the tax revenues that allowed the government to build those roads and bridges that the president talked about. Ford’s innovation of the assembly line was a manufacturing breakthrough that spurred heretofore unknown mass production. Even today, that process is a marvel as every single component that goes into an automobile arrives at its appropriate work station at precisely the right time. Each worker has been trained and has become skilled at performing the function necessary to install that component in the automobile. In 1903, when Ford Motor Car started in business, the average U.S. worker earned between $200 and $400 per year; $4 to $8 per week. In 1913, Ford’s offer to pay every worker a minimum of $5 a day, and reduce the work day from nine to eight hours, resulted in men lining up as far as the eye could see, all in hopes of getting hired by Ford. At that time, the average wage for workers in the auto industry was $2.36 for a nine
hour shift; $0.26 an hour Ford’s concept of “Let the worker buy what he can produce.” was a world changing idea. He understood that if the automobile market was to be expanded and grown, the average person would need to make enough money to buy the products they were producing. In 1909, the cost of the Model T automobile was $220. But Henry Ford understood the “Laffer Curve”, even before Economist Art Laffer was born. Ford continued to lower the price of the Model T automobile and by 1914, they were being sold for $99. During that period, the company’s net income rose from $3 million to $25 million and market share grew dramatically from 9.8 percent all the way up to 48 percent, dominating the world market for automobiles. (That same principle, now called the “Laffer Curve”, shows that lowering tax rates actually increases tax revenues.) As great as those achievements were, Henry Ford was not done. When World War II broke out, automobile production was suspended and manufacturers turned to producing military vehicles, armored vehicles, aircraft engines and airplanes. In 1942, Ford received a government contract to build aircraft engines. During the first year, it took Ford workers a little over 2,300 hours to build a Pratt and Whitney engine. True to form though, by 1944 Ford was able to produce the same engine in less than half that time; 1,028 hours. All told, by the end of 1944, Ford’s Rouge plant had produced almost 58,000 aircraft engines for the war effort. As great as was the Rouge Plant achievement, Ford’s shining star was its plant at Willow Run where they manufactured the B-24 Liberator Bomber. In a three year period, Willow Run produced almost 7,000 of the B-24’s and had manufactured and sent the parts for an additional 1,900 bombers to be assembled at Douglas Aircraft and Consolidated Aircraft plants in Oklahoma and Texas. Ford also produced a large number of tanks, almost 15 percent of all military vehicles, over 27,000 tank engines, and various other items necessary for the war effort. Historians have noted that American businesses were able to significantly out produce the AXIS powers in providing weaponry and its associated equipment. That ability contributed significantly to the Allies successful war effort. The facts are, Mr. President, that for the most part, the government has been the beneficiary of the largesse of businesses . . . not the other way around. (Bob Meade is a Laconia resident.)

LETTERS Considering the devastation, let’s hope Obamacare helps someone To The Daily Sun, If you are not scared by Obamacare, then you don’t know enough about it. Or, you are one of the very few, maybe 5 percent of the population, who will benefit from Obamacare. Or, you are completely callous to the suffering Obamacare causes millions of Americans who lose jobs, incomes, health insurance, and quality health care. Or, some combination of these. My letters are not scare tactics, as Kate Miller of the Belknap County Democrats claims. My letters just provide information about how Obamacare destroys the livelihood of middle income Americans, reduces health care access and quality for all but the rich and politically connected, and, by injecting government bureaucrat controls, degrades America’s health care system that is the envy of the world. Congratulations to Ms. Miller for finding one of the few companies, Cumberland Farms (part of Gulf Oil), that claims to be providing health insurance to more employees because of Obamacare. However, Obamacare has been a disaster for jobs. Most companies have reduced or eliminated hiring, cut worker hours, or even cut jobs to avoid Obamacare requirements. For example, see: http://freebeacon.com/ medicare-cuts-obamacare-prompthospital-layoffs/ Obamcare has been a disaster for our health care system. Doctors are retiring early. Obamacare taxes, regulations, and reduced Medicare/Medicaid payments are causing many hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, clinics, research companies, medical
device manufacturers, and others in the health industry to cut jobs, eliminate products, services, and even hospital beds. For example, see: http:// freebeacon.com/medicare-cuts-obamacare-prompt-hospital-layoffs/ Considering all the devastation caused by Obamacare, let’s hope that some people do benefit. But, most of Ms. Miller’s claimed benefits are just redistribution of income or political magic, where politicians herald giving you some benefits while hiding the fact that it cost you much more in taxes or fees than the benefit was worth. The biggest Obamacare beneficiaries are federal employees whose health insurance premiums are mostly paid by taxpayers and whose median compensation is double that of private sector employees. With 150 new federal Obamacare bureaucracies, there will be many more federal bureaucrats (including 16,000 new IRS agents examining your records) deciding everything about America’s current great health care industry including what treatments you can have. If Americans are stuck with Obamacare, then let’s hope that it actually helps some people. But it will make most Americans suffer, from a stagnant economy, from higher costs for an increasingly poorer health care system, from lower incomes but higher taxes, and from less access to quality health care resulting in more pain and early deaths. Obamacare is not worth the suffering it causes. Americans were right to oppose it originally and are right now to demand Obamacare’s total elimination. Don Ewing Meredith
Bicycles are more like pedestrians than like cars; let’s be logical To The Daily Sun, It sickens me to read reports of accidents between bicycles and POWER vehicles — cars, trucks, motorcycles etc. The bicycle doesn’t have a chance against all those other TANKS!

How many bike riders can ride and constantly look BEHIND them to escape the poorly controlled massive killing machine (ie, car or truck).
many to switch to bicycles — government was more intelligent then. They recognized the OBVIOUS! Bikes are more like pedestrians than cars, so regulated that like pedestrians, bikes MUST ride facing automobile traffic. Thus immediate drop in auto vs bike accidents. How many more dead or maimed riders will it take for our legislators to just be logical, and at least as intelligent as were those during WWII? Jack Stephenson

LETTERS Mooneys will continue to operate Briarcrest in same manner
Franklin residents should listen to Ray Burton before it’s too late
To The Daily Sun, The news stories about Briarcrest are about a powergrab by a very small minority of property owners. Thirtyfive to 50 maximum signed up, paid up members of a co-op group formed to take over the community. The other 70 plus percent of the owners have all signed up AGAINST a co-op. There are always figures on both sides that tell a story but it is not the story of Briarcrest. I along with most others here have lived here for many years. I am in my 18th year here and I chose this place for many reasons. First, it is a first-class-looking and well-cared-for community. It is operated by people who know what they are doing and who care about the people who are living here. There are people who fall on hard times and when they do, management has stood up and carried or helped with the load until they were on their feet. Many families need assistance. Ruth Mooney has organized food collections and makes and delivers many baskets, many times a year. Winter finds it way here and the crews are out at the first crack, plowing, sanding, as long as the storm lasts, all hours of the day and night, and when the storm is over they plow out the driveways. Keeping the roads open and safe are the first priority. Second, I have peace here. We live in a safe, quiet, and non-interfering environment. We come and go as we please. We take part in social activities if we want. We respect our neighbors and their privacy. We get along because we don’t get into other peoples’ business or minds. When this business of a co-op started, things changed. Neighbors were being unfriendly, insulting, and actually harassing a lot of the older residents. That comfortable feeling was gone. In the beginning statements by the group were untrue and we were put
To The Daily Sun, Franklin resident Stephen Pascucci has publicized his letter against HydroQuebec’s “business practices” and against its plan for degradation of New Hampshire’s scenic beauty. I heard Mr. Pascucci, at the Plymouth DOE hearing, enter his statement into the record. He received deserved applause. He made me remember the scene in the “Northern Trespass” movie shown recently at Franklin Opera House, and that Hydro-Quebec’s big guns, one of them, used the word “conquer,” as in, “We feel we have conquered Quebec’s northern wilds!” Something like that, glossing over that HydroQuebec took from the Cree and Inuit peoples and the caribou herds, too, the place they need for their survival and have always had. When the movie was made, Hydro-Quebec had dammed thirteen of 16 formerly wild rivers, made them cement-sided and stonecut sided water sluices with machinery and buildings, where once they were fordable and inviting waterways with life-supporting shoreline, quiet. The water bodies created behind the new dams cover over forests, so now the water releases methane gas into our planet’s air. So much for full-page
in fear by telling us that our leases would not be good under new private ownership. Attorneys for the owners and buyers came in, assured us of the law. Our leases were good until we no longer owned the property. It was a long time before the co-op people admitted that our leases were good as long as we held the property. So, no radical rent increases as predicted could be made, and other services guaranteed in lease would still be in effect. When questions were asked, no answers were given or you were told you were out of order. I have sent a letter to the Attorney General’s Office with a copy to the Department of Elderly for harassment as I believe the original meeting and vote were illegal. But the main thing about us is we are living free, independent lives, happy in our choice to live here. When you are in your senior years, peace of mind, independence, and the least amount of upset is all you want. We have that under present management,and they will continue to operate the community when it is sold to private buyer in the same manner at always. We know you can always find complaints and bad opinions in any situation and you can always have hard core groups that make trouble. If they are giving false information now, harassing people, etc. what would they be like running the community. This community was picked by the buyers because it was one of the best looking and best run communities they had seen and it is a tribute to the owners who started with nothing and built this 241 home community. Briarcrest has always stood for quality, independent living, necessary services and rules for keeping it the most attractive modular home community in the state.

Obama already has 6 Muslim Brotherhood members on his staff To The Daily Sun, Reading here in the paper that Obama spoke by telephone with the new president or Iran. All I can say is, how gullible can our president be? This is the same head negotiator who strung Britain, France and Germany along for months to give Iran the time it needed to get it’s atomic program up and running. To believe that this guy has any intention of changing anything doesn’t just stretch credibility, it strangles it. Are these progressives in the White House serious or are they crazy? Obama already has six or eight Muslim Brotherhood members on his staff and least we forget the Muslim Brotherhood were unindicted co-conspirators in the 9-11 attacks. They support Muslim terrorist organizations with money and politically. It has to make me
wonder if Obama knows exactly what he is doing and that is to help Iran get nukes with which to attack Israel and the U.S. with? Change of pace just a little, Leon R. Albushies letter today (Saturday) has it that the U.S. has illegally killed hundreds of thousands of people in the Middle East. He’s probably right if he’s going by their laws, courts and such but Leon, we are going by U.S. laws.

child, murders your own baby. If you don’t think that you have the ability to raise the infant yourself, please choose adoption, not abortion. Choose life. Abortion kills! Life is precious. Harry Mitchell
newspaper ads that make everything seem right with the Northern Pass project. Those ads give good revenue to our newspapers, yes, but the lies and deceptions are ugly testimony to the company’s disregard for New Hampshire’s people and land. Our accepting Hydro-Quebec’s destruction of a place that we cannot see, for electricity-generation, would be like a reputable museum dropping former standards and knowingly accepting art masterpieces looted from Jewish owners during WWII. As if having them overrides the means to having them. Executive Councilor Ray Burton said it well when, at one DOE hearing, he said Northern Pass should pack up and go home. Franklin residents might want to look into the height of the new towers that would invade their town if they have the converter station, and also that existing lines would be replaced with very high towers. Franklin residents might at last agree with Ray Burton, but don’t want to wait until it is too late and they have sold off for tax revenue what they’ll regret losing. Lynn Rudmin Chong Sanbornton
I can’t say enough good about my 10 days at Golden View Retreat To The Daily Sun, I just wanted to write a short note about a great place. On August 26,2013 I had a knee replacement at Concord Hospital and knowing that there may be no one at home to help, or walk my dog, I decided to go to rehab. I didn’t do this with my first knee replacement. I picked Golden View, the retreat, to check out as it was only four miles from home, great for visits from my hubby and friends. We did a tour and I was impressed with the equipment, rooms (all private) and the seven days a week of therapy. I did go to Golden View Retreat and I was so glad that I went. My pain was monitored and treated, my blood sugars, B/R’s and temperature were checked. Seven days a week of physical therapy came to my room, took me down to the work out area, and worked on me for 45-60 minutes
to get my knee to bend. Then the O.T worked on my upper body strength, bathing and dressing myself. The food was so good and went with my diet. I always had two choices, but the thing that makes this whole process work is the staff. All PT and OT shifts from RN, LPN and LNA’s, people, chefs and hair dressers, yes hair dresser (so good to get my hair washed and cut) were awesome cheerful and event at 1 a.m. right there to answer my bell to get me pain medication or a drink and I know good staff after having done nursing for 41 years. When I left after 10 days everything was taken care of. Medication, visiting nurse and physical therapist set up. So all I had to was give the visiting nurse a call. Then when I left Golden View called me to check on me. When you are looking for a rehab facilitation, check out Golden View. Ramona Blake Meredith
I’ve been level-headed throughout my years on Franklin School Board To The Daily Sun, To the Citizens of Franklin: I am writing to remind you that it is time for the local elections in Franklin. I ask for your support as a City Councilor for Ward Three. I have lived in Franklin for the past 24 years. My children were born and raised in Franklin and went through the Franklin school system and onto college. I have served on the Franklin School Board for the past 11 years. Some of the accomplishments while I have been on the School Board include lowering the dropout rate from a high of 18 percent to what is currently the statistic of 4 percent and increasing the proficiency level of the NECAP
scores. Throughout my years on the school board, I feel I have been level headed and, while not always in the majority, supported decisions once they were made by the board. Within the community of Franklin, I have been involved with the Franklin Lassie League, the Franklin Footlight Theatre, and have served on the board of the Twin Rivers Food Pantry. I feel I would be a good representative of the entire community of Franklin, and look to keep the best interests of our city at heart. I ask for your support, and please remember to vote on Tuesday.

Body found in river is missing UNH student
PORTSMOUTH (AP) — The state office of the Chief Medical Examiner confirms that a body found in the Piscataqua River was a University of New Hampshire student who went missing nearly two weeks ago. Police say the body was discovered Sunday morning near Prescott Park in Portsmouth.
In a statement Monday, the university said the body recovered was 19-year-old Jonathan Zygmont, a first-year UNH student who lived on campus and was last seen near the park on Sept. 17. The university says foul play was never suspected but police were concerned for the student’s well-being.
MEDICAID from page one physician included. Each participant has been given a deadline to make the selection. Each recipient can only pick one managed-care health plan and must use doctors who are certified and participate in that plan. The three plans are Well Sense, New Hampshire Healthy Families, and Meridian. Those who haven’t enrolled by the middle of November will be assigned a primary care provider and a health plan at random. The deadline for enrollment by health care providers is December 1 and the plan, which is part of the federal government’s Affordable Care Act, is scheduled to become effective on January 1, 2014. The initial confusion, said Cooney, is that some of the primary care providers and hospital providers are still in the process of becoming certified and have not been listed on the state Website that lists which physicians have signed up with which plan. When recipients call their primary care physicians to see which network they are on, many are told the provider hasn’t made the decision yet. Those with special health care needs are having a particularly hard time because they are not finding all of their doctors on one single plan. One local woman who asked that she not be identified has a 7-yearold son with multiple medical needs and sees different kinds specialist as needed. Medicaid insures her child through a program that supplements parents primary private insurer if they have children with severe medical needs. She said it has taken her the better part of her son’s life to put together a panel of physicians/specialists where each one provides a different component of his care. She said he had had multiple surgeries and sees specialists in Concord, Laconia, Manchester, Lebanon and Boston. “We’re on the third nephrologist (kidney specialist),” she said, adding that she is terrified about disassembling the medical team she and her husband have worked so long to put together. “I have three shells. If I pick the wrong one, I’m without a doctor,” she said. “I feel like I’m gambling with my son’s life.” This mother is a member of New Hampshire Family Voices — a network of parents with children with multiple medical diagnoses. Network Co-Coordinator Terry Ohlson-Martin said at first she shared the same concerns as the Laconia mother.
Also a mother of a child with multiple medical needs, Ohlson-Martin said she is feeling more confident now than when the new plans were first announced because it appears the state has settled on a final program and that many providers are signing contracts with all three managed-care providers. “It’s a new world for those with Medicaid, but for those of us who have private insurance, we’ve been on a managedcare system all along,” she said. She said she was ready to keep asking the hard questions but not ready to panic yet. Cooney said the DHHS “recognizes that there are families with special health care concerns” and they are “working hard to see that their needs are met.” “There will be some delays for some of them,” she said, but added that every day more and more providers are enrolling in one, sometime two, and in many cases, all three of the managed-care providers. “If you don’t see your medical provider on one of the plans, check back in a day or two and check again,” she said. Cooney also said there has been “cross-borders” outreach to medical providers that are not in New Hampshire — like Boston Children’s Hospital that has signed up for all three plans. She said that participants can change networks 90 days after their selection so as more providers become certified by the private managed-care providers, participants can reselect a plan that better fits their needs. Ohlson-Martin said she has also heard that many health care providers are selecting all three managedcare plans. Locally, LRGHealthcare has decided to participate in all three, said Executive Vice President Henry Lipman. Cooney said there are about 120,000 people in the state who qualify for Medicaid and to date about 11,000 of them have chosen their health-care plan and every day more and more physicians and medical providers become certified with one of the plans and their information get added to the website. She said any Medicaid-eligible people can contact the DHHS in two ways — the first is to go to www. nheasy.nh.gov to either created a NH Easy account or to manage the one they have. The second option is to call 1-888901-4999 to speak to someone at the Care Management Enrollment Call Center. “I am confident that the vast majority of people will be happy with us,” she said.
Series of Laconia-area open houses planned as part of Manufacturing Week LACONIA — A half dozen manufacturing firms and a pair of educational institutions will open their doors to the general public from Saturday, Oct. 5 until Wednesday, October 9 public as the Lakes Region joins the state in celebrating Manufacturing Week. The week begins on Saturday at Eptam Plastics at 2 Riverside Business Park in Northfield, where the firm, in partnership with the Belknap Economic Development Council (BEDC), is hosting a “Day of Play” along with guided tours of the plant between 10 a.m. and noon. Carmen Lorentz, executive director of the BEDC, said that children of four years and older are invited to “imagine something awesome” then build it, either at home before Saturday or at the factory on Saturday, using cardboard or other recycled materials. There are only 40 places available and participants must register for the event by either calling 524-3057 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org All visitors to the facility must wear closed-toed shoes. On Monday morning, Titeflex Aerospace will host tours of their manufacturing facility at 93 Lexington Drive in Laconia at 10 a.m. and 11 p.m. and in the afternoon Aavid Corporation
will host tours at 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. On Tuesday, 3M of 1 Paper Trail in Tilton will host tours at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. while the Astro Division of New Hampshire Ball Bearing will host tours at 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. Wednesday will begin with an open house for the the pre-engineering and manufacturing engineering technology programs at the Huot Technical Center at Laconia High School and end with open house for the Advanced Manufacturing programs at Lakes Region Community College from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Meanwhile, Scotia Technology will offer tours of its facility at 51 Growtth Road in Laconia at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. Lorentz said that open houses and plant tours provide parents and students with an opportunity to become acquainted with the nature of contemporary manufacturing industry, especially the skills its requires and the rewards its offers. She said these firms, which are among the most competitive and dynamic in the state, are helping to develop the regional workforce that will provide them with the employees who will enable them to prosper and share in their success. — Michael Kitch
GENERALS from page 2 sion with a rapidly declining force, my duty requires me to remain true to the timeless axioms relating to command responsibility and accountability,” Amos said. Amos added that Gurganus bore “final accountability” for the lives and equipment under his command, and had made “an error in judgment” in underestimating the risk posed by the Taliban in the Bastion area of Helmand province, which included his own headquarters at a sprawling base known as Camp Leatherneck. Sturdevant was in charge of Marine aviation in that region of Afghanistan. Amos said Sturdevant “did not adequately assess the force protection situation” at Bastion. Amos asked the two generals to
retire and they agreed. Gurganus, who had referred to the Taliban’s penetration of Camp Bastion’s supposedly secure perimeter as a “lucky break,” had been nominated for promotion to three-star rank; that nomination had been put on hold during the investigation. He will retire as a two-star. A few weeks after the Taliban attack, Gurganus told a news conference that “there’s no mystery” to how the Taliban managed to get onto the supposedly secure base and launch their deadly attack using rocket-propelled grenades. Gurganus said they used simple wire cutters to penetrate the perimeter fence, which was not equipped with alarms. “We have sophisticated see next page
HEROIN from page one from the Belknap County Superior Court showed Garcia was indicted for three separate counts of possession heroin, cocaine, and crack cocaine with the intent to distribute it Tilton on March 8, 2012. He was also indicted for possession of marijuana in Tilton. On April 20, 2012, Garcia was indicted for the special felony of possession of more than one gram of heroin with the intent to distribute it in Laconia. If convicted, he could serve up to 20 years in prison and pay a $300,000 fine. He was scheduled for court appearances on October 17, 2012 and December 17, 2012 on each separate charge and failed to appear on both. Warrants in each case were filed. Det. Sgt. Matt Dawson said Tilton Police arrested Garcia in January of 2012 after a few days of surveillance while he was staying at a local motel. Dawson said Garcia allegedly came once or twice a month to the area and sold various drugs from his hotel room.
He said police and witnesses observed him allegedly staying in his room most of the time, paying in cash for the hotel room and refusing all room service. Dawson said police saw him meeting people briefly in the parking lot and witnesses told police he would occasionally have women come to his room for a brief period of time. Dawson said Tilton Police detectives worked with Laconia Police detectives to apprehend Garcia. When he failed to appear for his second court date — after two delays, allegedly for a brain aneurism and his grandmother’s funeral, he was added to the fugitive from justice list which is disseminated to the U.S. Marshal’s Service of which Belknap County is a participant. In April of 2013 he was named the fugitive of the week. Wiggin said he was being held in the Bristol County (Massachusetts) Jail pending his appearance in the Fall River District Court for a fugitive from justice charge.

‘Much better boat’ awarded to retired dentist as grand prize in Ice Arena raffle By RogeR Amsden
LACONIA — Dr. Leo Sanfacon, 82, and still hoping to learn how to skate, won an 18-foot long Chaparral H20 Sport Boat, motor and trailer package valued at over $25,000 in the Laconia Ice Arena/Winnipesaukee Skating Club capital improvements campaign fundraiser. Sanfacon, a retired dentist and a member of the board of directors of the Lakes Region Boys and Girls Club, said that he had completely forgotten buying tickets for the raffle. He said that when Will Fay, manager of the Laconia Ice Arena, called him during the Patriots-Jets game on last Sunday and told him he had won the boat he asked ‘’what boat?’’ He picked up the keys to the boat, which was donated by Merrill Fay of Fay’s Boat Yard, Saturday morning and said that he was still trying to decide whether to keep his current boat, which he keeps on Squam Lake, or replace it with the new one. ‘’It’s really a much better boat than the one I have,’’ said Sanfacon, who was a student at Rochester High School when Merrill Fay’s dad, Wilbur, taught there in the 1950s. Will Fay, who heads up the arena’s fund-raising effort, said that the capital campaign, which was launched last year, is now about halfway to its $250,000 goal.
‘’There is a lot of hard work ahead of us, but I am confident our board and volunteers will get things done. Just as we did when we built this arena, we will work hard to get the community involved in this campaign.’’ Sanfacon said that Merrill Fay, who provided the boat for fundraiser, keeps a low profile in the community but has played a key role in youth sports, having donated the land on which the arena is built and having led a successful $1.7 million fund drive to build the arena in 1996. The arena is home to the Lakes Region Youth Hockey Association, which provides programs for area youth ages 4-18, is home ice to three high school teams, many men’s hockey leagues as well as the Central N.H. figure skating club and offers daily public skating. The capital campaign was launched last year and needs $117,000 for repairs and improvements to the nearly 20-year-old refrigeration system, $56,000 for operational needs due to system malfunctions and a current debt service of $94,000. ‘’We’ve had a cash flow problem due to system malfunctions which have cost us revenue due to unplanned shutdowns. We want to recover those costs so that current year revenues can be used exclusively for current year operating expenses,’’ says Fay.
from preceding page surveillance equipment, but it can’t see everywhere, all the time,” he said. “This was a well-planned attack. I make no excuses for it. This was well planned and it was well executed.” In fact, at least one of the guard towers near the Taliban fighters’ entry point was unoccupied at the time, officials have said. Six months prior to the attack, Gurganus was present during another security lapse at Bastion. In that case, an Afghan attacker in a stolen vehicle drove on the tarmac just as a U.S. Air Force plane carrying then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta was landing. In a failed sui-
cide attack, the man set himself on fire inside the vehicle, which careened into a ditch after missing Gurganus and other members of Panetta’s welcoming party. Afterward, Gurganus denied to reporters accompanying Panetta that there had been a security breach. On Monday, after Amos’s announcement, Gurganus issued a brief statement saying he felt privileged to have served in the Marine Corps for 37 years. “I will treasure that forever. I have complete trust and confidence in the leadership of our Corps and fully respect the decision of our Commandant.”

After fire, Pitman’s Freight Room hopes to be open again in few weeks By Gail OBer
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — The owner of Pitman’s Freight Room said yesterday that he expects the live music venue to reopen after Sunday morning’s fire within a matter of weeks. Richard “Dick” Mitchell said the fire that is still under investigation could have been a lot worse. “It would have killed me,” Mitchell said. “We put so much into it.” Mitchell said he was told the fire started around 2 a.m. Saturday in the back side of the building, on what used to be a freight loading dock. He said the Laconia Fire Department was returning to the station from extinguishing a suspicious dumpster fire near Hector’s Restaurant when Pitman’s fire alarm sounded nearby. He said firefighters were there within one minute and were able to quickly extinguish the blaze. He said a portion of the back wall will need to be rebuilt and there is smoke damage throughout the building. “It’s a miracle that the fire department was so close,” he said. Pitman’s, on New Salem Street, is a
function hall and live entertainment venue that features live blues and soul music, comedy shows and other events. According to their Webite, in 1988 Mitchell and his wife Connie bought the former freight station that was built in 1890 by Pitman’s Manufacturing — one of the largest hosiery manufactures in New Hampshire in the 1800s. The first stage of renovations saw the opening of an antique store in one end of the store. The live entertainment portion of the renovation started in 2009 after the Mitchell’s renovated the remaining portion of the building, and installed heating, air conditioning, a third bathroom and a 5-sided hickory dance floor. Pitman’s averages one to four shows weekly and is a BYOB venue. Mitchell said he can’t thank the Laconia Fire Department enough for responding so quickly. “These guys are wonderful,” he said. He said he also wanted to thank his any friends and his manager for the work they did on Sunday re-securing the building and being there when the insurance company came.
Clarification: Alcohol Abuse Fund not fed by taxes A story in Friday’s edition misidentified the source of the state’s Alcohol Abuse Prevention and Treatment Fund as a tax. The money in the fund, commonly referred to as the Alcohol Fund, comes from a percentage of New Hampshire liquor sales revenue.
Funding for the Alcohol Fund in the Fiscal Year 2012/2013 budget was cut by 55 percent, to $1.547 million per year. It was subsequently increased by $250,000 per year for the 2014 and 2015 fiscal years, raising the annual funding amount to $1,797.000.

LACONIA -- Laconia High School students showed the community what it means to be a Sachem as they took on opposing teams for a full schedule of homecoming games on Friday and Saturday. The Laconia High School football team kicked off the homecoming contests by defeating Hanover on Friday night by the score of 26-20. The Marauders proved a tough opponent, scoring all 20 points in the second half. The comeback effort was contained by Laconia’s defense, though, which limited Hanover to 97 yards on the ground and 145 passing. Laconia managed 358 rushing yards, led by sophomore Kyle Chiasson. With the win, the Sachems evened their record to 2-2.
Laconia’s field hockey team started Saturday’s action at the school’s new Bank of New Hampshire Stadium. As the ball started making its way down to the opposing side, the offense worked together fluidly, helping give the defense a break. Giulliana Kevlin scored two goals for Laconia, followed by a goal by Cheyanne Zappala, and the final goal was made by Emily DeDucca. “The girls played the best they have all year, and dominated Kearsarge.” said Coach Suzanne Kiefer. The final score for girls’ varsity field hockey was 4-1, marking a good start to the day for the Sachems. The girls’ soccer team took the field later in the afternoon, and tried their best to keep Hopkington, defending state champs, at bay. Though the Sachems see HOMECOMING page 13

Sink Your Teeth Into This…. The English language is full of expressions that refer to teeth – here are a few examples for you to chew on… You can “show your teeth” if you want to let someone know you’re angry or you can “lie through your teeth” if you don’t want to tell someone the truth! Did you “cut your teeth on something”? If so, you were getting your first experience in a particular type of work by learning the basic skills. Have you ever been “kicked in the teeth”? That’s too bad because someone has really let you down. Does scraping a chalkboard “set your teeth on edge”, or can you try to tolerate that noise and just “grit your teeth and bear it”? Would you “give your eye teeth” for a million dollar lottery ticket? If someone stole that ticket from you, would you “fight them tooth and nail” to get it back? If that person was a boxing champ who weighed 250 pounds and stood 6 foot 5 inches tall, you could possibly still win, but just “by the skin of your teeth”! It really is quite amazing what we can accomplish when we “take the bit between our teeth”. In closing, let me remind you that for some people making a dental appointment is “like pulling teeth” – which is to say it’s not easy. Your chances of keeping your teeth are a lot better if you get regular dental care. Have you had a dental examination this year? It’s easier than you might think…

Laconia U5 Chiefs come out of weekend with a win & a loss The Laconia Chiefs U5 team split its recent two games, losing to Plymouth and winning over Londonderry. The Chiefs opened the new Fitzgerald Field with a big time rivalry match up with the Plymouth Huskies. The youngsters from Plymouth put their hosts in an early 14-0 hole with some power running right up the gut. The Chiefs were able to respond, as tailback Jackson Reulke took a handoff from QB Logan Dee, broke several tackles, and raced his way 45 yards for his team’s first score of the day. The score pulled the Laconia squad to within one score as the time was winding down in the half. Plymouth was able to capitalize on a Chiefs turnover, and punched another score in with just seconds remaining to go into halftime up 20-6. The Chiefs made some key adjustments at halftime and came out fired up. LB Garrett Mango moved down to the defensive line and stuffed the inside running game of the Huskies. Helped by the linebacker play of Kaleb Daignault and Aaron Williams, the Chiefs kept their opponents out of the endzone and the ball in the hands of their offense. The offense moved the ball down the field, got Plymouth to jump offsides on consecutive plays, and then gave the ball to Reulke, who found the endzone once again. The extra point attempt by Daignault was good and the margin was now 7 points. The defense stood strong again and Laconia started one last march for paydirt. The drive, however, was stalled by a costly penalty and then an even more costly turnover. When the dust had settled, the Huskies were able to hang on for a 20-13 victory. SANT BANI from preceding page up in the 28th minute to provide the only score in the first half. Things opened up a bit in the second half with Sant Bani’s Mohamed Sapry scoring a pair of goals, the second coming off a great pass from freshman Dietrich Mahlstedt. Dublin’s Harrison Glaude provided some offensive punch of his own, matching Sapry’s two second half goals. Sant Bani put the game out of reach with additional goals from junior Zhenglin Yu and Evans’ second of the day. With a little breathing room, Sant Bani coach Todd Schongalla was able to put some of his younger play-
The Chiefs hosted their counterparts from Londonderry for the second game of this past weekend. The Chiefs were desperate for a victory and the tough Wildcats were just what the doctor ordered. The Chiefs took their opening possession and marched down the field before tailback Jackson Reulke (137 yd.on 22 carries, 2 TD’s) found a seam and raced 45 yards for the day’s first score. Wingback Rashuan Magdich was able to convert the extra point and the Chiefs had a 7-0 lead. The Wildcats were able to answer the call with a touchdown of their own, but the extra point attempt was stuffed short by defensive linemen Cooper French and Garrett Mango. But on this day the Chief’s offense was not to be outdone. Reulke was able to take the handoff from QB Philip Nichols and race 55 yards for his 2nd score of the day. The extra point attempt failed but the youngsters from Laconia had a 13-6 halftime lead. Laconia’s defense came out fired up in the 2nd half and limited the Wildcat offense to just 2 first downs. OLB Nolen Perrino and Phil Nichols forced the Wildcats to run inside where they were consistently stuffed by DT Aaron Williams and LB Dakota McCoy. The Chiefs offense kept their momentum going as QB Logan Dee made a great fake and bootlegged the ball around the left end for a 35 yard touchdown run, his first of the season. CB Jackson Reulke was able to intercept a Wildcat pass and race the ball 60 yards down the sideline to the Londonderry 1-yard line. This time it was tailback Colton Roy who punched it in for his team’s final score on the day and Roy’s first touchdown of the season. Londonderry was able to tack on a late score but the Chiefs had all but secured the victory at that point. When it was over, Laconia had a convincing 25-13 victory to even their record at 2-2 on the year.
ers on the field and was “excited to see how well they performed.” Ninth grader Lindsey Tarbin’s hard work during the offseason “is paying huge dividends,” and Ellen Lockwood and Justine Pitman’s tenacious defense helped keep the Dublin attack off balance. “These kids are stepping up in a big way and it couldn’t come at a better time, with three games scheduled this week, all against formidable opponents.” After a day off, Sant Bani was scheduled to face Cardigan Mountain varsity at home on Monday; Wednesday is a rematch at New Hampton and Friday ends the week with a trip to Proctor Academy.

Bridgewater Hazard Mitigation meeting on Wednesday BRIDGEWATER — The Bridgewater Hazard Mitigation Plan Committee will hold its fourth meeting on Wednesday at 10 a.m. at Bridgewater Town Hall. The committee, which is represented by the Board of Selectmen, Planning Board, Police and Emergency Services, the Road Agent, and the Hebron-Bridgewater Refuse Facility is updating its 2008 Hazard Mitigation Plan. It has considered the natural and man-made hazards that put Bridgewater at risk. The committee is developing recommendations to protect the safety and well being of town residents. Residents of Bridgewater and representatives from neighboring communities are encouraged to attend and provide input.
Hazard Mitigation Planning is as important to reducing disaster losses as are appropriate regulations and land use ordinances. The most significant areas of concern for Bridgewater will be determined as a result of this process. With the update to the Hazard Mitigation Plan, community leaders will be able to prioritize actions to reduce the impacts of these and other hazards. Community leaders want the town to be a disaster resistant community and believe that updating the Hazard Mitigation Plan will bring Bridgewater one step closer to that goal. For more information call the Selectmen at 7445055 or David Jeffers, Regional Planner, Lakes Region Planning Commission at 279-8171.
HOMECOMING from page 11 fell short of a win, giving up eight goals to the opposing team during the duration of the game, the girls put up a good fight and proved that they would keep pushing on with a positive attitude no matter the score. The boys’ soccer team was the next to play on the turf. The game started off strong for the Sachems, as they boys pushed their way down the field toward the Winnisquam goal. Over the course of the game seven goals were netted by Laconia. The first goal was scored by Kolby Fornier, assisted by Aidan Dean. James Salta put a second score on the board with an assist by Drew Sykes. Senior Jake Sykes had a hat trick during the game, with one assist by James Salta. The final goal of the game for the Sachems was made by Brent Clarke, assisted by Patrick Guyer. The boys walked off the field proud of their 7-2 final score for the game. After splitting their first six games of the season, the Sachems improved to 6 wins, 3 losses following the homecoming game. “The boys are doing what they need to do,” said coach Matt Dubois. “They are working hard in practice, focusing on their skills, and collaborating as a team.” With a ranking of eighth in the division, the playoffs are looking very promising for the boys’ soccer team this year. The Laconia girls’ varsity volleyball team displayed power and passion in their match against Hanover. However, their play was also marked with technical errors and poor on-court communication, which resulted in a loss in three sets to the visitors. The girls put up a great fight no matter the score, and showed to the many spectators that came to watch, that they have much potential. As always,
captains Jeanine Parsons and Rebecca Dragon embody the motto, “We may be small in number, but big in heart.” The Laconia High School cross country team had quite a weekend. Eager to get the homecoming sporting events started, the team left school early on Friday afternoon and raced on up to Waterville Valley to take part in a meet. The team, all males with the exception of one girl, came in 10th out of 17 teams. Ready to keep running the team hosted a fundraiser on Saturday, which took the form of a volunteer race.

Merrifield seeking 4th term as Franklin votes today FRANKLIN — Voters in this city will go to the polls on Tuesday to elect a mayor and some members of city council, as well as four members of the School Board. Voting hours in all three wards will run from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Ward One voters will cast ballots at Thompson Hall (47 Main Street). Ward Two voters will vote at City Hall (316 Central Street). And Ward 3 voters will gravitate to the Middle School (200 Sanborn Street). Mayor Ken Merrifield is seeking a fourth term and there are no other names on the ballot for that position. Glenn Morrill, however, is conducting an aggressive, last-minute write-in campaign for votes. All four city councilors that are up for election this year are running for re-election, but only Paul C.
Trudel (Ward Three) has opposition — from Steve Barton. Councilor Arthur “Ted” Starkweather (Ward One), Councilor Tony Giunta (Ward One) and Councilor Douglas A. Boyd are unopposed. Four seats on the School Board are up for election and while there are, officially, no contested races, at least two write-in campaigns have been mounted. Incumbents Charles “Chad” Carey (Ward One) and Timothy M. Dow (Ward Three) are unopposed. Former High School football coach Gregory Husband (Ward One) is alone on the ballot but Gwen Hall is seeking write-in votes for that seat. Likewise, Angie Carey (Ward Two) is the only name on the ballot but Carol Edmunds is asking for write-in votes.
CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire hospitals told lawmakers Monday to eliminate a tax on their revenue that they say is putting them at a competitive disadvantage and affecting the delivery of health care to patients. Hospitals began paying the 5.5 percent tax in 1991 so the state could gain matching Medicaid funds to pay for caring for the poor. For many years, they got all their taxes back dollar-for-dollar in a refund from the state. That changed in 2011 when the federal government said states could no longer give hospitals the taxes back dollar-for-dollar and had to apply a formula that distributed the money according to hospitals’ Medicaid costs. The Legislature then cut Medicaid funding to the hospitals by more than $130 million but maintained the tax. In a letter to lawmakers considering changes to the tax, 23 hospital CEOs argued that the tax is
having a profound effect on the ability to maintain a sustainable health care system. “This tax increase was levied on institutions already under financial stress,” they wrote. The hospitals also argue they are at a disadvantage because labs, free-standing surgery centers and other facilities aren’t subject to the tax. “Health systems from neighboring states anxious to serve New Hampshire patients in their facilities carry no similar financial millstone,” they wrote. “If left uncorrected, more and more patient care will migrate out of state with professionals and other employees quickly to follow.” The hospitals say if the tax isn’t eliminated, payments to reimburse them for the uncompensated care they provide must be maximized. And they said all the money should go to the state’s Medicaid program, not the general fund.
LANCASTER (AP) — The owner of a New Hampshire gunpowder plant where two workers were killed in a 2010 explosion was motivated by profits, failed to ensure employee safety and should be held responsible for the deaths, a prosecutor said Monday as the man’s manslaughter trial opened. The lawyer for plant owner Craig Sanborn, 64, of Maidstone, Vt., countered that the explosion could have been caused by employee error. Defense attorney Mark Sisti emphasized that Sanborn was in North Carolina the day of the explosion and had no
control over the plant or conditions that led to it. Sanborn is charged with manslaughter and reckless homicide in the explosion at his Black Mag plant in Colebrook that killed Donald Kendall, 56, of Colebrook, and Jesse Kennett, 49, of Stratford. They had been hired a month earlier. The force of the explosion shook nearby buildings and sent plumes of black smoke into the air. Dozens of homes were evacuated and firefighters couldn’t get close to the blaze for several hours because ammunition was exploding.

Gathering Time high-energy folk trio will perform at Belknap Mill Sunday for dessert & concert event LACONIA — Gathering Time, a high energy folkrock New York trio, travels north, bringing their soaring harmonies and dynamic sets to a dessert and concert event at the Historic Belknap Mill in Laconia on Sunday, October 6. Stuart Markus, Gerry McKeveny and Hillary Foxsong have been astounding audiences in the New York metropolitan area in venues from house concerts to outdoor festivals, to churches and synagogues and on prime folk rock radio shows, nationwide. An evening with Gathering Time ranges from “sweet and sentimental to joyous and energetic, from irreverently funny to heart stopping serious with eclectic sets that include new twists on traditional folk, beloved classics from the ‘60’s and strong originals”, says the Garden City Long Island News. The immense success of last season’s concert by the Boxcar Lilies led the Temple B’nai Israel producing team to continue to review bands to present to Lakes Region audiences. Ken Goodman, researched hundreds of potential performers before deciding on Gathering Time, and knew that he had found a winner. This third concert in the series has been moved to the Belknap Mill to accommodate the audience that overfilled the previous venue. Gathering Time’s remake of Peter Yarrow’s “Light the Candle” has been spun on stations ranging from NYC’s top-rated WCBS-FM to Israel’s Galilee Plains as have their “Songs of Hope and Freedom” CD offerings. The newest CD, “Red Apples and Gold” with themes of history, family tradition and harvest time, rose to #5 on the Folk DJ charts last September and finishing #19 in the top 100 for the year 2012.

From left to right, honorees Kent and Mary Alice Warner and CEO and President of Spaulding Youth Center Susan S. Calegari.(Courtesy photo)
Center Harbor residents honored by Spaulding Youth Center NORTHFIELD — Spaulding Youth Center recently held a celebration to honor Kent and Mary Alice Warner from Center Harbor who have helped Spaulding Youth Center immeasurably through enthusiastic volunteer work, guidance and philanthropy. Their passion for helping children with challenges led them to Spaulding many years ago and they eventually became Board members - Mary Alice from 1996 to 2002 and Kent from 1998 until 2013. Students, staff and board members gathered in the Spaulding Community Center to applaud both Kent and Mary Alice and guests took turns thanking and roasting Kent on the eve of his retirement from the board. When Kent resigned from the Board of Trustees in June he was elected Trustee Emiritus of Spaulding. A citation from Governor Hassan was read and a student presented a declaration from Spaulding Youth Center declar-
ing the day to be “Kent and Mary Alice Warner Day.” Kent has worked tirelessly for Spaulding serving on the following committees during his tenure: Development, Endowment Oversight, Finance, Joint Governance Task Force, and Physical Plant and Natural Resources. The climax of his career at Spaulding was his involvement in raising funds for a highly successful capital campaign to build a state-ofthe-art school that has the capacity to educate 100 special needs students. CEO and President Susan Calegari thanked both Kent and Mary Alice for all their support, friendship and unabashed commitment to advancing Spaulding’s mission. For information about Spaulding Youth Center, contact Gail Mayhew, Director of Development at 603-2867500 ext. 532; email@example.com or visit www. spauldingyouthcenter.org.

The ninth film, to be shown on October 2, will be “Ram Dass: Fierce Grace” (2001) 93 minutes. “Harvard professors Richard Alpert and Timothy Leary made countercultural history in 1963 when they were
dismissed from that institution for conducting controversial research. In 1967 Alpert journeyed to India with spiritual seeker Bhagavan Das and there found his guru Maharaj ji, who renamed him Ram Dass (“Servant of God”). Upon his return in 1969 Ram Dass spent some time on his father’s summer home in Franklin. Many of his spiritual followers came to be with him there. Best known for his 1971 bestseller Be Here Now, which was a spiritual touchstone of the era, Ram Dass became an see next page
Holy Trinity Parish to begin ‘A Day Away’ respite day care program PLYMOUTH — On Thursday, November 7, Holy Trinity Parish is scheduled to begin a Day Away Program for caregivers of adults with Alzheimer’s disease or Dementia. Day Away is a social respite program held once a week from 9 a.m. -3 p.m. at Our Lady of Grace Chapel in Bristol. Day Away will provide shortterm temporary relief to those who are caring for family members. Even though family members/caregivers receive great joy in providing care to their loved ones so that they can remain at home, the physical, emotional and financial consequences can be overwhelming without some support, such as respite. Day Away is designed to provide a safe and comfortable atmosphere for participants to help maintain their independence, encourage socialization, be mentally stimulated and remain active. Trained volunteers and an RN are on-site to provide 1-1 supervision for the participant. A nominal fee of $25 includes lunch.
Eligible participants must be able to ambulate with a cane or walker, or walk without assistance, participate in a social setting, use the bathroom without assistance, have the ability to self administer medication and live at home with their caregivers. As well as lunch, participants will have the opportunity to gather with a volunteer companion for coffee and discuss with them their life and interests. There will also be time for an adult worthy craft, light exercise, and ballroom dancing. After lunch time is allotted for the participants to play bingo and other low impact games. The day will end with a social gathering and light refreshments. A meeting will be held at the MinotSleeper Library in Bristol, Thursday, October 10 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Interested parties are encouraged to attend to learn more about the program. Time will be allotted for questions. Contact Fran Olson at 603744-6828 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
CONCORD — New Hampshire hunters can share their fall harvest with the needy through the “Hunt for the Hungry” program at the New Hampshire Food Bank. Once again this fall, the food bank is collecting donations of whole or processed game animals for distribution to more than 400 food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters and group homes statewide. Last year (2012), the Hunt for the Hungry program took in 1,700 pounds of donated deer, bear, moose and other game meat for distribution to the needy. To donate game, and for packaging instructions, call the Food Bank at 603-669-9725, x240. If you’re donating a whole deer, you can bring it to Lemay & Sons Beef in Goffstown, N.H. (603-622-0022), and they will process it for the food bank at no charge. Please note that the N.H. Food Bank is not equipped to accept donations of wild game birds, such as wild turkey or grouse. “We are counting on continued strong support from hunters this year,” said Bruce Wilson, Director of
Operations for the N.H. Food Bank. “Donations of protein foods fill a big need for the Hunt for the Hungry program. Venison is especially popular, a real treat for clients. Last year, we got some moose meat, and as soon as it came in, out it went. As always, we want to thank New Hampshire hunters and Lemay’s for their continued support.” “The Hunt for the Hungry program is a great way for hunters to share their harvest and help needy families get through the winter,” said Glenn Normandeau, Executive Director of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department. “Wild game is a local renewable resource that is high in protein, low in fat and all natural – not to mention delicious.” For more information on donating to the New Hampshire Food Bank, visit http://www.nhfoodbank.org. The New Horizons Food Bank in Manchester also accepts game donations to help feed the hungry. To donate game meat to New Horizons, call 603-628-6133, x114.
CENTER HARBOR — Bayswater Book Co. of Center Harbor will sponsor a Tea & Talk with bestselling mystery author Archer Mayor on Friday, October 18th at 4 p.m. at Lavinia’s Restaurant in Center Harbor. Mayor will be discussing his newest book “Three Can Keep a Secret,” along with his life experiences as a writer and crime investigator.
A former researcher for Time-Life Books and lab technician in Paris, France, Mayor is currently a death investigator for Vermont’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, a detective for the Windham County Sheriff’s Office and a travel writer for AAA. Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as “the best police procedural written in America,” Maysee next page
from preceding page inspiration to people across the globe. The film intersperses vivid archival footage from hippiedom’s glory days with intimate glimpses of Ram Dass today, as he continues to remake his life since having a stroke in 1997. October is the fiftieth anniversary (1963) of the founding of the Sant
Bani Ashram in Sanbornton. The two groups, while separate, certainly shared many ideals and values and not a few seekers were referred to the Ashram by Ram Dass. All who lived during those tumultuous and lifechanging times are invited to share their memories and reflections during a discussion following the film.

Tuesday, October 1st @ 7:00 Laconia Rotary Hall “Catch-22” by Joseph Heller The idea for “Catch-22” was based on Joseph Heller’s personal experience in World War II. The feelings that Yossarian and the other bomber pilots felt were taken directly from problems he suffered while on duty. Heller flew 60 bombing missions from May to
October in 1944. Heller mentions that he should have been killed three times over, since the average death rate was 5% per mission. Heller was able to make it out of the war, but the experience tortured him and it took until 1953 before he could start writing about it. The war experience turned Heller into a “tortured, funny, deeply peculiar human being”. Books are available at the Adult Circulation Desk. We now have passes for the SEE Science Center in Manchester!

11th Annual Brenda’s Ride raised $11,200 for local oncology patients
2013 Brenda’s Ride with Friends supporters get ready to hit the road for the ride around Lake Winnipesaukee. (Courtesy photo)
LACONIA — Fifteen-year breast cancer survivor Brenda Ganong recently hosted the 11th Annual Brenda’s Ride with Friends: Fighting Cancer One Mile at a Time. The day was a huge success, raising $11,200 for the Oncology patients at LRGHealthcare. Brenda’s Ride started in 2003 with just 35 participants and has continued to grow with each passing year. The 177 motorcycles comprising 238 bikers all convened at the Weirs Beach Lobster Pound the morning of August 17, setting off for a beautiful ride around Lake Winnipesaukee. Lead by Alton, Laconia, Meredith, Northfield, and Tilton Police Department volunteers, the convoy arrived back at the Lobster Pound mid-day for a cookout, raffles, and live music courtesy of Matt Langley and band AXIS. “This year’s Brenda’s Ride with Friends was one of the best yet. The weather was perfect and there was a really great vibe all day,” says Ganong. “We
were thrilled with the outpouring of support from all of the riders, sponsors, friends who came for the cookout and to hear the band, and of course our loyal volunteers. Brenda’s Ride continues to thrive, and knowing that we’re helping patients right here in our own community is very rewarding.” Proceeds from Brenda’s Ride with Friends are used to assist Oncology patients in a number of ways, to help lighten the financial burden during an already very tough time. Funds have been designated to: help with co-pays for ports; assist with co-pays for prostheses; purchase gas cards and cab vouchers to get patients to appointments; and to buy disposable phones/phone cards to be able to get in touch with patients. In one case a recliner was purchased for one terminally-ill patient who could no longer sleep in a bed. “This year we were able to purchase a blanket warmer for the Oncology Suite; you wouldn’t believe the com-

fort a warm blanket brings to some people as they are receiving their treatments, explains LRGHealthcare VP of Clinical Support Services/Director of Oncology Marge Kerns. “We were also able to help with funeral expenses for a very young patient whose family needed assistance. Oftentimes the Oncology Department is just one little piece of the puzzle in helping to alleviate some financial stress for families. The recipients of these funds are people whose lives have been thrown a curve ball and it is a heartwarming feeling to assist people in these ways -- knowing it brings them a bit of comfort and stability. Without the support of people like Brenda and her team of volunteers, this would never be possible,” states Kerns. What goes around comes around. One patient who received assistance from the Brenda’s Ride fund years ago made a visit over the holidays to the Oncology Department with a check in hand. In his time of need he received help, and this was his way of paying it forward. The August 17 Brenda’s Ride welcomed several high-level supporters including $1,000 Gold Sponsor Winner’s Circle Auto Sales; $500 Silver Sponsors Brady Companies, The Looney Bin, Pilgrim Consolidators, and Roche Realty; and in-kind donors AXIS, Binnie Media, Body Covers, D’Andrea Foods, Giant Towing, Gilbert Block, Northeast Radio Group, Reinhart-Agar (Brad Preston), South Shore Quality Meats, The HAWK 104.9, and 1350AM Radio. Support also came from Shirt Sponsors, auction donations, and many businesses generously donated goods and services to the event. “The staff and patients at LRGHealthcare are incredibly grateful to Brenda and John Ganong and all of their friends and family who continue to make each Brenda’s Ride such a success,” states LRGHealthcare Annual Fund & Special Events Manager Becky Doherty. “The team at the Lobster Pound always goes above and beyond for this event; Matt Langley and band AXIS had everyone on their feet; the sea of motorcycles seemed endless. Brenda has the most bighearted friends and LRGHealthcare is very fortunate to be the beneficiary and a part of this great day.” from preceding page or’s 23 mystery novels draw on many of his varied life experiences. Mayor’s newest book, “Three Can Keep a Secret,” tells the story of detective Joe Gunther and his team at the Vermont Bureau of Investigation as they unravel a mystery surrounding an empty coffin and three suspicious deaths in the turmoil and aftermath of Hurricane Irene. Tickets are $30 and include tea & treats prepared by Lavinia’s chef Jeff, as well as a $15 book credit toward Mayor’s new paperback “Paradise City” or new hardcover, “Three Can Keep a Secret.” Space is limited and tickets sell quickly to reserve a ticket or to purchase a special order copy of the book call 253-8858.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). People present the side of themselves that they want you to see and believe. You’re too keen to take that as the whole truth. You’ll see through the cracks of the faáade and address the reality. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll be concerned with the larger implications of your activities. If a practice makes you skillful, blameless and happy, it’s something worth pursuing. If it brings a lot of garbage and politics into play, it’s not worth pursuing. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Seize the moment of silent reverence offered you. “No more words. In the name of this place we drink in with our breathing, stay quiet like a flower, so the nightbirds will start singing.” -Rumi TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 1). Your birthday brings confidence and clarity. A dry spell will end this month, and you’ll feel a fresh flow of excitement visit your realm of personal relationships. November pleasantly changes the direction of your work. Sell something of high value and reinvest in January. You’ll give an acceptance speech in March. Taurus and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 48, 17, 41 and 39.
by Chad Carpenter
ARIES (March 21-April 19). A person who doesn’t know what good is cannot be happy. Your conscience may keep you from following a hedonistic path, but ultimately joy is better than pleasure. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Call the expert, Google the question on your mind, ask your mom. Do your research first, before you decide on a plan of action. Research will tell you what is not even worth pursuing. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Stress may be a fleeting reaction to the moment, but it also has long-term health ramifications. Learning more effective coping skills could actually help you live longer and will certainly help you live better. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re in a different place in your life than some of the people who are around you today, which is precisely why you have a lot to offer one another. The gift of a different perspective cannot be underestimated now. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You like that people younger than you have things that weren’t available to you growing up. But sometimes younger people teaching the older ones can bring an unsettling dynamic. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There are things that are richer than power and privilege, but sadly some people lack the ability to experience them or even believe they exist. That’s why your compassion is a muchneeded force in the world. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You could worry about things not under your control, or you could channel that energy into the things you can do something about. More than likely, you’ll do a little of both. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A person doesn’t have to be lying to be totally wrong. There is a lot of misinformation in the world. Try not to read too much into the exchange of bad information. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The work you did last week is only now starting to be recognized by those whose opinions matter to your future. More than compliments, you want advancement -- and that’s just what you’ll get.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Tuesday, Oct. 1, the 274th day of 2013. There are 91 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 1, 1908, Henry Ford introduced his Model T automobile to the market. On this date: In 1861, during the Civil War, the Confederate navy captured the Union steamer Fanny in North Carolina’s Pamlico Sound. In 1910, the offices of the Los Angeles Times were destroyed by a bomb explosion and fire; 21 Times employees were killed. In 1932, Babe Ruth of the New York Yankees made his supposed called shot, hitting a home run against Chicago’s Charlie Root in the fifth inning of Game 3 of the World Series, won by the New York Yankees 7-5 at Wrigley Field. In 1936, Gen. Francisco Franco was proclaimed the head of an insurgent Spanish state. In 1937, Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black delivered a radio address in which he acknowledged being a former member of the Ku Klux Klan, but said he had dropped out of the organization before becoming a U.S. senator. In 1940, the first section of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, 160 miles in length, was opened to the public. In 1949, Mao Zedong proclaimed the People’s Republic of China during a ceremony in Beijing. A 42-day strike by the United Steelworkers of America began over the issue of retirement benefits. In 1961, Roger Maris of the New York Yankees hit his 61st home run during a 162-game season, compared to Babe Ruth’s 60 home runs during a 154-game season. (Tracy Stallard of the Boston Red Sox gave up the round-tripper; the Yankees won 1-0.) In 1962, Johnny Carson debuted as host of NBC’s “Tonight Show,” beginning a nearly 30-year run; after being introduced to the audience by Groucho Marx, Carson received his first guests, actor-singer Rudy Vallee, actress Joan Crawford, singer Tony Bennett and comedian Mel Brooks. In 1964, the Free Speech Movement was launched at the University of California at Berkeley. In 1972, the book “The Joy of Sex” by Alex Comfort was first published by Mitchell Beazley of London. In 1982, Sony began selling the first commercial compact disc player, the CDP-101, in Japan. In 1987, eight people were killed when an earthquake measuring magnitude 5.9 struck the Los Angeles area. Ten years ago: The United States took over the month-long presidency of the U.N. Security Council at a time when it was campaigning for approval of a new resolution aimed at getting more countries to contribute troops and money to Iraq. . Five years ago: After one spectacular failure in the House, the $700 billion financial industry bailout won lopsided passage in the Senate, 74-25, after it was loaded with tax breaks and other sweeteners. Nick Reynolds, a founding member of the Kingston Trio, died in San Diego at age 75. TV actor House Peters Jr., the original “Mr. Clean,” died in Los Angeles at age 92. One year ago: Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem, addressing the U.N. General Assembly, accused some Security Council members of supporting “terrorism” in his country.

PSU’s Karl Drerup gallery hosting exhibit by Chinese painter Yang Jikui PLYMOUTH — The Karl Drerup Art Gallery at Plymouth State University will present an exhibition of paintings by Chinese artist Yang Jikui October 1–November 9. An opening reception for the exhibition will be held on Tuesday, October 1 from 4-6 p.m. in the Draper and Maynard Building on North Main Street in Plymouth. Jikui is a prominent Chinese painter, well known for his elegant and bold ink brush paintings of traditional subjects such as exotic flowers, birds, fish and garden foliage. His masterful technique demonstrates the power and nuances available to an artist with his understanding and experience. Guided by his mentor Master Qi Baishi’s advice to his students that “whoever strives to acquire my spirit of innovation will succeed, while those who merely imitate me will fail,”
Professor Jikui says he calmly and steadily marched on his own road to success. “I acquired from the works of ancient masters, and I go to nature to observe various life forms for novel ways to depict life, “ he says. Jikui explains that a literary background is extremely important to a brush painter. “A main feature of my artwork is its poetic content and depth in artistic dimensions, together to accomplish a fusion of brushwork art with poetry, making a painting is like conveying the culture,” he says. Jikui has studied brushwork painting since 1961 and has had solo exhibitions of his work in Japan, New York, Philadelphia and Bridgewater (Mass.). He has published two books. He has also taught at a number of schools and is an executive board member of Shan’xi Society of Fine Art, and vice president of Shan’xi Society of Brushwork. He is a member of the
China Research Institute of Fine Art and the Shan’xi Research Institute of Culture and History. The exhibition has inspired a lecture series to coincide with Professor Yang’s visit to Plymouth State University. “Adventures in Chinese Culture,” will feature presentations by distinguished scholars on many topics. All
talks will be held in the Drerup Gallery. The lecture series includes: Tuesday, October 1, 6 p.m.—Art that Transcends Borders: A Personal Cross-Cultural Appreciation of the Painting of Yang Jikui, Roger Dunn. Professor at Bridgewater (Mass.) see JIKUI page 27

Page 24 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, October 1, 2013
Dear Annie: I am a 57-year-old woman, and my husband is 61. We met online and spent weekends together for seven months before getting married. I was deeply in love with him for the first six months. Lately, my attitude and feelings have changed dramatically. This man drives me crazy and grosses me out. He is constantly clearing his throat and blowing his nose. He is flatulent and burps long and loud all day and night. He’s clumsy, and his memory is going downhill fast. He becomes very defensive when I try to talk to him about any of this. I still love him, but not romantically. I feel more like a best friend. I have to force myself to kiss him, let alone sleep with him, and due to his denial, I have lost a lot of respect for him. This was not the man I dated. He retired six months ago and now sits around all day getting stoned. He doesn’t make friends, and he needs open heart surgery and a knee replacement and will require a caregiver very soon. He knew I was a nurse when we met, and I think he married me because of his overwhelming fear of being alone. I have spent decades taking care of people who are disabled, demented and in denial. I now see this marriage as a live-in job. He can’t understand why my feelings have changed and blames me. I feel totally trapped. I bought the house we are living in and brought more money into the marriage. However, because I am entitled to his retirement benefit when he dies, he considers our financial contributions to be equal. I didn’t date for 12 years before I met him and thought we were very compatible. I should have lived with him for at least a year, but I wanted to set a good example for my children. Please don’t suggest counseling. It won’t change his personality or improve his declining health and honesty. -- Regrets in Paradise
Dear Regrets: The counseling isn’t for him. It’s for you. You feel trapped with a man you no longer wish to be intimate with, and the future you see is that of patient and nurse. There’s no point in beating yourself up over what you didn’t notice when you were dating. That happens to everyone. The question is what you are going to do about it now. And that’s where the counseling can help. You need to sort out how you feel, whether you are willing to stick it out and the emotional cost to you. Dear Annie: Why do people make a big deal out of men who are crossdressers? I am 43 years old, happily married and not gay. I’m a businessman, and I wear lacy lingerie with breast forms under my suits every day. My beautiful wife of 20 years thinks I look hot in lingerie. When we go out to fancy restaurants, I dress up as a woman. I’m very passable, and our four teenage daughters are OK with it. There are straight women who wear men’s clothing, and I never hear anything negative about them. -- A Happy Father and Husband Dear Happy: Women who wear men’s clothing generally do so because it is more comfortable. Men who wear women’s clothing, which is decidedly less comfortable, often do so because it gives them a sexual thrill or satisfies some emotional need. (Some women dress like men for the same reasons.) The important thing is that your wife and daughters are OK with it. No one else’s opinion matters. Dear Annie: I believe “Native New Yorker,” whose scratchy voice makes people think he is foreign, missed out on a lot of opportunities to have fun. His response to questions regarding his origin should be: “I’m from Mars. Please take me to your leader.” -- C.
