Selectman have no interest in building satellite Belmont fire station

BELMONT — The Board of Selectmen took an ax to the Fire Department’s capital budget request last night, chopping a fire boat and a feasibility study for a new satellite station, worth a total of $95,000, from consideration. The fire boat is to replace the old pontoon platform boat for Lake Winnisquam with a new boat capable of fighting fires. The department removed the pontoon see BELMONT page 8

Senior Center asks Meredith for 43% reduction in rent BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

MEREDITH — The Community Action Program of Belknap-Merrimack Counties (CAPBM) has asked the Board of Selectmen to reduce the annual rent the agency pays to

operate the Inter-Lakes Senior Center at the Community Center from $14,000 to $8,000. At a workshop yesterday, Pam Jolivette, director of Elderly Services at CAPBM, told the selectmen that the request was based on comparing the rent at

the Community Center, which has housed the senior center for the past eight years, to what it pays for other comparable facilities. She explained that the agency has lost $85,000 in federal funding due to the sequester and another $63,000

in funding from Granite United Way. She explained that to sustain its programs and services at their current levels, the agency has reduced staff hours and eliminated positions while exploring further budget reducsee MEREDITH page 8

Obama declares ‘no excuse’ for health care signup problems WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama on Monday offered “no excuses” — and little explanation — for the computer bugs still frustrating Americans who are trying to enroll online for insurance plans at the center of his health care law. But software developers tasked with building the site said they saw signs a year ago that the debut could fail. One source of the troubles appears to be the testing procedures employed before the rollout three weeks ago. Several developers of the website told The Associated Press they were worried for months about the system’s readiness and whether the software meant to link key computer systems was being properly put through its paces. In addition, congressional investigators raised

concerns recently that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services had taken on the job of testing the computer systems for the new markets during the final weeks before the sign-ups opened Oct. 1. That job is often handled by specialized software companies. Obama, who emphasized the website’s simplicity in the week’s leading up to the insurance sign-ups, acknowledged there could now be “no sugarcoating” the problems even as he talked up the benefits of the law at a Rose Garden event that had the feel of a pep rally. “The website that’s supposed to make it easy to apply for and purchase the insurance is not working the way it should for everybody,” he said.

He insisted that the problems would be fixed and all Americans seeking insurance would be able to sign up. But it was not clear how quickly that would happen. The administration is beefing up call centers and encouraging more people to enroll over the phone while the website problems persist. The flood of computer problems since the website went online has been deeply embarrassing for the White House. The glitches have called into question whether the administration is capable of implementing the complex policy and why senior White House officials — including the president — appear to have been unaware of the scope of the problems when the health insurance markets, known as see OBAMACARE page 4

ACAPULCO, Mexico (AP) — Hurricane Raymond gained more strength as it remained nearly stationary off Mexico’s southern Pacific coast Monday, though it threatened to hurl heavy rains onto a sodden region already devastated by last month’s Tropical Storm Manuel. Guerrero state authorities said it was raining in places in the afternoon but so far no torrential rains had hit the area. More than 100 people were evacuated as a precaution from a mountain town east of Acapulco, authorities said. The U.S. National Hurricane Center said the Category 3 hurricane was nearly stalled offshore, with maximum sustained winds of about 125 mph (205 kph). Raymond was centered about 105 miles (170 kilometers) south of the beach resort of Zihuatanejo late Monday afternoon, and it was expected to move only a little closer to the coast by Tuesday before veering back out to sea Wednesday. In the beach resort of Zihuatanejo, officials went door-to-door in hillside communities warning residents about the risk of flash floods and mudslides, but nobody had voluntarily evacuated to the three shelters set up in schools and athletic facilities, municipal firefighter Jesus Guatemala said. Amid light, intermittent rains, tourists continued to stroll through town. Mexican authorities rushed to deploy emergency see HURRICANE page 16

Monday, wounding two 12-year-old boys and killing a math teacher who was trying to protect children from their classmate. The unidentified shooter killed himself with the gun after a rampage that occurred in front of 20 to 30 horrified students who had just returned to school from a weeklong fall break. Authorities did not provide a motive for the shooting, and it’s unknown where the student got the gun. Teacher Michael Landsberry was being hailed for his actions outside Sparks Middle School during the shooting. “In my estimation, he is a hero. ... We do know he was trying to intervene,” Reno Deputy Police Chief Tom Robinson said. Both wounded students were listed in stable condition. One was shot in the shoulder, and the other was hit in the abdomen. The violence erupted nearly a year after a gunman

Sparks Mayor Geno Martini said Landsberry served two tours in Afghanistan with the Nevada National Guard. On his school website, Landsberry posted a picture of a brown bear and took on a tough-love tone, telling students, “I have one classroom rule and it is very simple: ‘Thou Shall Not Annoy Mr. L.’” “The kids loved him,” his sister-in-law Chanda Landsberry said. She added his life could be summed up by his love of his family, his students and his country. “To hear that he was trying to stop that is not surprising by any means,” she said.

Over weekend, 1 Laconia Eric Grant trial for alleged rape scheduled to begin Nov. 12 convenience store target of burglar(s) & another robbed by a man on a bike

LACONIA — Police were kept busy this weekend by an attempted burglary at a Church Street convenience store early Sunday morning and the robbery of a different convenience store later that evening. In the first matter, a police officer on routine patrol found a ladder leaned against the back wall of the Laconia Spa. The ladder was under a window that appeared to have been broken however no entry was made. Lt. Matt Canfield said yesterday that a ladder was one of the items reported stolen from the Boy Scout shed located behind Holy Trinity Catholic School in a burglary investigated last week but police have not confirmed it’s the same ladder used in the attempted burglary at the Laconia Spa. The school is located near the convenience store, on the opposite side of Church Street. Police estimate the attempted burglary took place between 11:30 p.m. on Saturday until about 1:20 a.m. Sunday. In the second matter, a lone, white male about 5-feet 7-inches tall wearing a mask and a gray and white stripped hoodie entered the Premium Mart on Court Street and demanded the cash. Police said no threats were made and no weapons were shown. The said the robber fled on foot and was seen moments later on a black mountain bicycle. There were witnesses and the store has video surveillance. Police said they have no reason to think the two incidents are related. If anyone has any information about either crime, they are asked to call the Laconia Police at 524-5252 or the Greater Laconia Crime Line at 524-1717. — Gail Ober

LACONIA — The trial for the founder and namesake of the popular Eric Grant Band for aggravated felonious sexual assault is scheduled to begin on November 12 in the Belknap County Superior Court. Grant is charged with digitally penetrating a female child on December 31, 2006. At the time of the alleged crime, the child was under 13. Grant, a Sanbornton resident, has maintained his innocence and said he would fight the charges. Earlier this month, Judge James O’Neill ruled that the alleged victim’s step-father — a California resident — must be in court if Grant’s defense team wishes to call him as a witness. The man, who Grant’s attorney Emily McLaughlin said was sober and present the evening of the alleged assault, said he saw Grant give the girl a “wedgie” that

Police break-up underage drinking party at Gilford hotel GILFORD — Police broke up an under-aged drinking party Friday night at the Fireside Inn after another guest called to complain about the noise. Acting Chief Jim Leach said police found five males three of whom were under the age of 21. One of the boys appeared to be celebrating his 18th birthday.

He said police charged the three 18-year-old boys with unlawful possession of alcohol and one of them was charged with possessing a small amount of marijuana. Leach said all of the boys appeared to be from the Bellerica, Mass. area and all were released to the custody of a sober adult.

OBAMACARE from page 2 exchanges, opened. Obama stopped short of apologizing for the failures, saying instead that “nobody is more frustrated than me.” Even as he spoke, more problems came to light. The administration acknowledged that a planned upgrade to the website had been postponed indefinitely and that online Spanish-language signups would remain unavailable, despite a promise to Hispanic groups that the capability would start this week. The White House says additional technology experts from both inside and outside the govern-

ment are being brought in to work on the failures. Administration officials initially blamed heavy website traffic for the frozen computer screens that many people encountered when they first logged on. Since then, they have also acknowledged shortcomings with software and some elements of the system’s design, although the administration has yet to fully detail exactly what went wrong with the online system and who was responsible for the problems. It appears the problems were well-known to some of those designing the system. One developer said that in the weeks leading up to the Oct. 1 launch, see next page

night but didn’t see him sexually assault her. McLaughlin said this statement is consistent with what Grant recalled. According to paperwork filed in court, the victim, who now lives in California, allegedly told a counselor about the alleged attack. The counselor reported what the victim told her to a police investigator. Both the state and the defense have agreed to allow the investigator’s testimony to be submitted to the jury in the form of her video deposition, however the state has objected to allowing the video deposition of the alleged victim’s therapist be entered by the defense without her being present.

M’borough selectmen have not yet acted on petition seeking new administrator By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

MOULTONBOROUGH — The selectmen have yet to address a petition presented earlier this month urging them not to renew the contract of Town Administrator Carter Terenzini when it expires on March 31 and to convene a committee to begin searching for his successor. When the Selectboard met last week, Chairman Joel Mudgett said that there has not been an opportunity to discuss the petition. When Selectman Chris Shipp suggested the board schedule a non-public meeting to consider the issue, his colleagues appeared to agree, but took no steps to convene a meeting. When the petition bearing nearly 200 signatures was presented, the board accepted it in silence, save for Shipp who asked how many residents had signed it, while Terenzini jotted down notes. Speaking almost under his breath, Mudgett said that the board would take the petition “under advisement”. Jordan Prouty, longtime trustee of the trust funds, presented the petition. Reading from a prepared statement he described the town administrator as “the face of the town to the public,” whose “actions, values, demeanor and from preceding page he and his colleagues huddled in conference rooms trying to patch deficiencies in computer code. “It was an extremely tight deadline,” said the developer, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was told not to talk to the news media about his work. A review of internal structural diagrams obtained by AP also revealed the complexity of the system. The diagrams show that applicants must submit at least 50 pieces of personal information, including income and immigration status. That data is then connected to at least eight distinct federal computer systems, including the Social Security Administration and the Peace Corps. The schematics from late 2012 show how officials preferred a “data services hub” — a traffic cop of sorts for managing information — instead of a

character reflect who we are as a community. When citizens find that his conduct and values and actions do not reflect positively on our community,” he continued, “they are left with no recourse, but to appeal to the body that made the decision to employ Mr. Terenzini.” Prouty said that petitioners share “a firm faith that a change will make for a better future.” Noting “we wish Mr. Terenzini no ill will,” he claimed that “his actions have created animosity and divisiveness both in and out of town hall” and concluded “we have lost confidence in his ability to properly represent the citizens of Moultonboro.” The petitioners, he said, “do not take this action lightly,” but believe a change is required to “move forward in a positive manner that better reflects our values.” The signatories to the petition, Prouty said, “are making a clear, fair request for a more harmonious future,” which requires a town administrator “with natural leadership skills and values matching those exemplified by our many long term volunteers.” Terenzini has been unpopular among a section of the community for much of his five-year tenure and questions about his renewing his contract have arisen before. setup that would have allowed state exchanges to connect directly to government servers when verifying an applicant’s information. On Sunday, the Department of Health and Human Services said the data hub was working, but the initial consumer experience had not lived up to the public’s expectations. “We are committed to doing better.” Administration officials have so far refused to say how many people have actually managed to enroll in insurance during the three weeks since the new marketplaces became available. Without enrollment numbers, it’s impossible to know whether the program is on track to reach the projections from the Congressional Budget Office, which estimated 7 million people would gain coverage during the first year the exchanges were available.

California conquers partisan warfare California has found a formula for ending the partisan warfare that once paralyzed its government: Get rid of one of the parties, in this case, the Republican. The state’s famously dysfunctional government now hums with calm efficiency. Democrats there hold a supermajority in the state Legislature, making it well-nigh impossible for Republicans to gum up their plans. The governor, Jerry Brown, is a Democrat, as well. The nation might avail itself of a similar solution, given the Republican leadership’s inability to stop a destructive minority from threatening America’s credit rating and turning the country into a global laughingstock (the way California used to be). Moving the House of Representatives into Democratic hands might give us all a needed rest. But one-party rule can only be a temporary fix. It leads to corruption and arrogance. A Democratic frolic untempered by a sophisticated opposition would soon sour in the mouths of a centrist electorate. Furthermore, it is California’s good fortune that Brown is a business-savvy pragmatist able to fight off liberal excesses in his party. For example, he vetoed a bill that, shockingly, would have let non-citizens serve on juries. Brown has also been careful to keep a moderately tight rein on spending. Looking long term, the really important thing happening in California is not the partisan takeover but the political makeover. In 2008 and 2010, California voters passed measures that yanked the pencil for drawing political boundaries out of their politicians’ grasp. Before then, incumbents could scheme to stuff their districts with like-thinking voters. The new law also ditched party primaries. The top two vote-getters in an open primary — from whatever party or no party — get to appear on the general election ballot. Thus, a Republican may end up running against another Republican, a Democrat against another Democrat, or either against a Whig. Ironically, this may be the saving grace for California’s muchshrunken GOP. As districts become more politically diverse, Republican right-wingers — with their

inflamed imaginings and inexplicable amount of free time — see their power to produce sure losers curbed. Activists on the left also have a harder time creating safe districts. Gone is the 200-mile snake paralleling the liberal coastline around Los Angeles, custom-tailored for former Democratic Rep. Howard Berman. Under the reforms, a nonpartisan commission drew the lines in a more squared-off shape. Berman’s snake was fattened to include the less liberal inland, represented by another Democrat, Brad Sherman. The two ran against each other in November, and Sherman prevailed. One could envision a temperate Republican doing okay here, especially if the national party takes the asylum back from the inmates. Sacramento is now a model of quiet efficiency. The state’s new health insurance exchange is off and running with minimal drama. And there’s even a move to ease some environmental regulations at the behest of business. Other states have embarked on reforms designed to undo the district lines concocted in their capitals’ smoky rooms. Iowa, Washington, Arizona and Idaho have been leaders in this, but California has gone the furthest. Oregon is debating whether to adopt its model. This new way of conducting elections does more than weaken the partisans’ ability to limit our choices in November. It recognizes the growing proportion of unaffiliated voters, 21 percent in California, up from 18 percent in 2005. Over half the states have closed primaries, meaning those belonging to no party have little say until Election Day. Gerrymandering built safe congressional districts for the most bizarre tea party candidates. Republicans might hesitate to create opportunity for conservative Democrats, but not doing so — look at their nosedive in national polls — should alarm them more. California’s Democrats took the risk. So should they. (A member of the Providence Journal editorial board, Froma Harrop writes a nationally syndicated column from that city. She has written for such diverse publications as The New York Times, Harper’s Bazaar and Institutional Investor.)

Thank you for turning in my purse, with everything still in it To The Daily Sun, I would like to thank the person/ persons responsible for turning in my purse (with “everything” still in it) that they found on Sheridan Street to the Laconia Police Department on

LETTERS Obama has compassion for those who are less than uber wealthy To The Daily Sun, Some recent letter writers make general and stereotyped statements condemning those who need assistance from the government. There are some who will take advantage of any program, or food pantries, or welfare. This should not taint our view of those in need, right? The examples we hear from people with narrowed minds try to make us believe that only the ones who have made it are entitled to what they earn (and to all of it). If you did not know my mom, would you condemn her because she was on Medicaid, received food stamps and collected Social Security in order to live her life? Would you be one of those condemning her because she was divorced and worked for peanuts at menial jobs, thus having to ‘take advantage’ of the programs the government offers for those in need so they can at least live day to day? Blanket and unfounded statements such as “a lot of people feel this way” are much too simplistic, erroneous and misguided. If you widen your scope of the U.S. and the world at large you might understand those who walk among us who have less

and maybe, just maybe not be so quick to be judge and jury. You might see them as real people trying to make it and not as statistics and stereotypes. Most of them are people who are working hard and trying to do right. Open up your heart and mind: it’s not good to close either one. Please understand that I support what President Obama is trying to do for you, me and the rest of the country regardless of the color of our skin, our level of education, or how we choose to live our lives. He, and most people in this country, show compassion for those who have less than the very wealthy of this nation. Lest we forget, the one percent of the uber wealthy want to keep all that they have without caring about or feeling any brotherly concern or responsibility for others who are less fortunate than them. I cannot live by this mindset, ever! Neither can this country. We became a strong nation because we worked together and cared for each other. We helped each other and in the process forged a vibrant and compassionate society. We are each stronger when all of us are; we are all in this together. Bernadette Loesch Laconia

‘Insanity’ pretty much covers my experience with To The Daily Sun, I want to share my experience with those who haven’t achieved their goals with this — yet. On October 5, I was finally able to get the application started. This event took approximately two hours and it was a lovely day outside. My husband managed to get the entire backyard raked in the amount of time it took me to “complete” the application. I finally got to the end of the application (still not knowing if we qualified for the subsidies or if there were insurance plans we could afford) and my husband’s ID needed to be verified. So I did the steps required (scanned his N.H. driver’s license and attached it) and then waited... and waited. I called once a week wondering why his ID wasn’t being verified and the call center would tell me to call the ID verifying company (Experian Verification Services). I would call them and be told I had to call the call center again. So I would. Then round and round we go. Last week (October 10) I was told

this was a glitch and I should wait another week. I called October 19 and the call center, yet again, told me to call Experian. I did and they told me to call the call center. I did. But on the bright side I now get a new message when I try to upload my husband’s ID. Now I get a message telling me the file is too large and must be smaller than 10 MB. It is — much smaller. Still won’t accept it. I will give this one more attempt... one more and I’m done. I REFUSE to submit his ID via the mail. They can’t tell me how long that would take and I have no idea where it’s going. I still don’t know what plans we have available to us, I still don’t know if we qualify for any subsidies, and we aren’t any further now than we were on October 5. Albert Einstein’s definition of insanity “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Pretty much covers this. Mary Pelchat Thornton

LETTERS ‘Climate change’ is perfect name because climate will change

Some benefit from big government at the expense of the many

To The Daily Sun, I recently read a letter from Professor Wes Golomb of LRCC on climate change. After I was done laughing I felt the need to clue the professor on the fallacy of climate change. The fear of climate change has been around for decades. Even in the 1970s people were talking about it but it wasn’t called climate change back then. It was called global cooling. That’s right! People were scared that the world was getting too cold and we were all going to freeze to death. Time magazine even dedicated multiple articles and covers to the threat. It was all the pollution and ash from volcanoes that was blocking the sun and making the temperature drop. One of the solutions was to melt the polar ice caps so we could raise the temperature by getting rid of the ice. Fast forward a couple of decades. The temperature had been rising and the fear of global warming was growing. Then the stories started. It was pollution and ash from volcanoes that was trapping the heat, melting the polar ice caps, and we were all going to drown if we didn’t burn to death first. Time Magazine even dedicated multiple articles and covers to the threat. Sounds the same, only different. In Dec. 2009, the Global Warming Summit was held in Copenhagen. On the final day of the summit, Copenhagen received four inches of snow overnight due to a blizzard going through the area. Temperatures fell to a balmy 25 degrees Fahrenheit. That is some harsh global warming right there. To make sure that didn’t happen again, the next summit was held in Cancun.... no chance of it snowing there. About six months ago I had the plea-

To The Daily Sun, Did you know the Federal Government was shut down? Would you have noticed if the media did not constantly tell you about it in the news? Yes, the big problem was the closing of the National Parks. In the news every day, people on vacation were not allowed access to the roads in the National Parks or to the monuments in Washington DC. It is hard to imagine that people are fooled by this political action. Closing the roads to National Parks is like closing the roads across the N.H. White Mountains. Park Rangers closed the gates and stopped collecting entrance fees at least until the states decided to open some of them. Yes, the federal government-run campgrounds and other housing facilities might need to stop operating along with the Disney World like tram ride in Yosemite but why did the roads through these parks need to be closed? When the Federal Government “shuts down”, parklands should remain open free of charge to allow vacationers the right to access roads and trails to view the many beautiful waterfalls, rivers, lakes, cliffs, canyons, trees, mountains, super-volcano lava flows, etc. Park Rangers are not necessary for people to see the outdoors. How many noticed the shutdown of the unnecessary government agencies like the Department of Energy, Education and HUD. The permanent closing of these agencies would result

sure of attending a regional planning commission listening session. One of the topics discussed was climate change (that’s what we are calling it now). They gave us all stats from the year 2000 how the temp has been rising and what we can do to change the course. Someone smartly asked “Why are these stats from 2000? It’s 2013 now.” The reason is of course that the average global temperature has been dropping over the past 13 years. So it was global cooling, then global warming, and now climate change. Climate change is the perfect thing to call it because the climate will change. Now we can spend money no matter which way the wind blows. Climate change isn’t about climate. It’s about someone telling us what we can drive (car pollution), what we can eat (cows bred for consumption fart, leading to methane gas killing the Ozone), and how much of our tax dollars can be spent on a problem that doesn’t exist. I’m all for lowering pollution and finding alternative energy sources as long as it is affordable and not paid for by fleecing the American taxpayer. In 2011, Obama-backer and solar cell producer Solyndra received $535 million taxpayer dollars. Did they produce more affordable solar cells with that money? No, they went bankrupt. Where is the $4.28 billion in economic benefits from that investment that the prof. says we should receive? Professor Golomb says that science of climate change is not a democratic endeavor. Sorry to say it, but the science of climate change leads to big government and that is a Democratic endeavor. Scott Schoonmaker Laconia

I can certainly hate your views but I don’t have to hate you, too To The Daily Sun, As a full-time reader and occasional contributor, I was dismayed by a few of last week’s letters. There were several personal attacks and, one letter so angry — so hateful — that it actually sickened me. I think that The Daily Sun is a wonderful forum for political debate. Most of the contributions are thoughtful and, at least, somewhat respectful. There are, however, certain factions that have absolutely no tolerance for any opinion other than their own. These individuals attack not only someone’s opinions, but see no problem in personal, vicious assaults. Anyone who disagrees with them can find themselves caught in a crossfire. Many of these letters are dominated

by CAPITALIZATION. I guess this is the equivalent of YELLING. Daily Sun readers are, by definition, READERS. We can figure out your emphasis. Now to quote Bill Clinton — listen to this: I absolutely defend anyone’s right to express their views I may not agree with them, but have the utmost respect for freedom of speech. I may not see the necessity of owning an assault weapon, but I support the Second Amendment. As a card carrying member of the LEFT (sorry), I voted for Barack Hussein Obama — twice. I may hate your views, but I don’t hate you. Hasn’t our country advanced beyond the High Noon — blow each other away mentality? June M. Huot Laconia

Populace has recognized the problem and it is not Obamacare To The Daily Sun, In a recent Letter to the Editor, Belknap District 5 State Representative Dick Burchell stated that: “57 percent of the populace rejects the ACA” This is incorrect as polling data (Kaiser Health, CNN/ORC, and others) show that at least 40 percent of the populace favor the ACA (Obamacare) or want it expanded, while fewer than 39 percent want it ended. More importantly in New Hampshire the most recent New

cent of our populace supports the ACA while 38 percent oppose it. Interestingly, the latest NBC/Wall St. Journal poll shows that only 24 percent of our populace approves of Representative Burchell’s Republican Party... Hmm! Clearly our populace has recognized a problem and it is not the ACA (Obamacare); a quick look in the mirror would show Representative Burchell where the problem is. Lew Henry

in less spending and government controls that negatively impact jobs and the free market economy. There was some news about how highly-paid federal employees were suffering from the 16 day shutdown, although reports now say they are being paid for not working. I wonder how the people who truly live on a paycheck to pay check basis feel about the alleged “suffering”. Perhaps they missed one of their $200,000 plus conference/seminars? It is sad that the elderly were scared by the threat of not sending out retirement social security payments. Reports that the country lost billions of dollars because of the shut down are unsubstantiated. If they did not pay federal employees for the shut down period, you would think there would be millions saved in reduced labor costs associated with these unnecessary workers. The pro big government people sure seem to think they won the shut down exaggeration. This just confirms that there are people who benefit from big government at the expense of the many who lose. Unfortunately, those fooled by the park closures are likely going to continue to be fooled by those successfully convincing people that a centralized big government spending and borrowing trillions is necessary and good for them.

A bible was the only object to survive our September 22 fire To The Daily Sun, Despite the devastating fire on September 22 that destroyed both out warehouse and office spaces, Northeast Electrical Solutions, LLC of Laconia never missed a beat. Three service vehicles and a great many tools were lost. Fortunately, two fully equipped vehicles were off site at the time of fire. Immediately upon being notified about the fire, management and employees of NES began to triage. Personal vehicles were set up as mobile offices, business telephone lines were forwarded to employee cell phones for 24/7 coverage. Temporary office and storage spaces were rapidly located thanks to the generosity of family and friends. Everything needed to continue Northeast Electrical Solutions operations was at hand, including manpower and a determination to continue. NES’s pledge to continue their “standard”, i.e. stellar customer service remained firmly in place. The employees at Northeast Electrical Solutions will tell you that they are like a small family-sharing a camaraderie seldom found in the business world of today. Not only do they work as a team during business hours, but it is not unusual for them to assist each other on a personal level if needed. The fire was certainly a crisis, without question, but it was not a defeating crisis. Perhaps for the immediate future some

things would be different, but there was nothing that could not be handled if it was dealt with as a team. In 2009, when owner Gregg Selesky started Northeast Electrical Solutions he knew that there would be bumps in the road. He knew that the construction industry was as unpredictable as the weather, with workloads and revenue fluctuating constantly. Functioning as an employer instead of an employee was a new world for Gregg. Despite the many challenges, his Northeast Electrical Solutions not only prospered, but grew. Divisions were created to handle everything from marine electrical repairs to security systems. Solar and wind power systems were offered as well. There were good days and bad... perks and pitfalls. Strong faith created a permanent glue while a diverse and ever growing customer base evolved. Team building was an ongoing process in the beginning and continues today. The perfect “recipe” for success is not written in any book, it is a process. (If you question the faith aspect in all of this, I have to tell you that Gregg Selesky’s bible, always atop his desk, survived the September 22 fire virtually unscathed when everything else in the office was destroyed.

BELMONT from page one boat from service about a year ago. The $70,000 feasibility study was recommended by Fire Chief David Parenti because, in his opinion, coverage from the town’s fire station in the village has response times that are too slow to the Route 3/ lake section of town, which generates about 26 percent of the fire department’s calls. “Most communities our size have two stations,” Parenti said, identifying a piece of undeveloped town-owned property on the corner of Union Road and Woodland Drive on the southeast side of Lake Winnisquam near Silver Lake as a potential site. “I won’t disagree with you (about the need) but right now I can’t support a feasibility study,” said Selectman Ruth Mooney. Selectmen Jon Pike and Chair Ron Cormier agreed with her. When Parenti asked for a capital reserve account in lieu of a feasibility study, Cormier said he couldn’t support either. “I can’t see how this board can dispose of one fire station (Winnisquam) and in a second say let’s spend

$70,000 to look at a station,” he said. Parenti also asked for a $200,000 refurbishment of Engine 3 — the second engine in Belmont’s fleet and the one that responds on the “second line.” He said there is some significant rust on the 1997 fire truck but a new truck would cost $500,000. He said if the body was refurbished he would be able to move it forward as the primary response truck for the next five or so years and then get an additional five or so years as a second response engine. He said he spoke with Greenwood Emergency Vehicles and said they recommended a complete inspection for $2,000 — meaning a technician go over the body and frame to see if it will last 10 years. “If the frame rails are shot then there’s no point,” Parenti said. Parenti also said that RSNE of Gilford would give the motor and drive-train a complete check for $500. Selectmen told him to get the motor evaluated before he moves ahead with the body inspection. He also asked selectmen for a new fire command vehicle. Right now the department has two Ford lo w m o r tg ag e r at e s w h i l e t h e y l a s t

Explorer SUVs — one each for the chief and deputy chief — and the one the deputy drives has “multiple coolant leaks” and may need a head gasket. Selectmen suggested spending $35,000 on a new Ford Interceptor SUV and make it the chief’s vehicle. Pike said he would like to put the chief in a smaller vehicle and the Ford Interceptor (sedans) are designed for emergency responses. He also said the fuel savings would make a big difference in the long run. On the operations side of the budget, Parenti requested an additional firefighter. He said he has reduced the rest of the operations budget — especially his overtime line — to compensate for the position. He also suggested that if the additional firefighter is approved, that he or she start in July. As to the long-term effects on the operations budget, Parenti noted he has two lieutenants who may be retiring in 2014 and some savings would likely be realized in personnel costs when he replaces them with people who are not as senior. Selectmen chose to move the additional firefighter request on to the Budget Committee for consideration with a recommendation to support it. The position is budgeted at $35,000 plus benefits. Pike noted selectmen had asked the chief to reduce his overtime and “he has done what we asked.” — Gail Ober MEREDITH from page one tions and alternative sources of funding. The senior center is one of 10 operated by the agency and serves Meredith, New Hampton and Center Harbor. The center provides meals-onwheels, congregate dining, and transportation services as well as exercise and wellness programs. Selectman Peter Brothers said that “it’s painful to sit here and hear about the reductions,” but then reminded Jolivette that “we too are experiencing drops in revenue while operating costs continue to rise.” He noted that the operating budget for the Community Center has grown from $348,000 in 2007 to $441,500 in 2013 and “revenues are as flat as they can be. These lines cross each other at the wrong place,” he remarked. “Long story short, we’re in a very similar situation as you are.” Although Brothers was pleased to hear CAPBM was reducing costs, he said “I’m having a hard time looking at the request.” He pointed out that the senior center uses 1,585-square-feet, which includes the office of the director of the senior center, of the 18,000-square foot facility for about half-a-day. In addition, he said that the center uses the kitchen appliances, which he anticipated would need replacing in the near future. Brothers said that apart from leasing the Community Center the town makes an annual appropriate to CAPBM, which he described as “a pretty significant contribution.” He sought assurance that Meredith’s contribution is “not out of proportion.” Town Manager Phil Warren reminded the Selectboard that revenues from the Community Center have risen from $149,000 to $175,000 during the past several years. He said that after resetting rates “we’re in the market,” but cautioned against increases that would “price ourselves out of the market.” “I’m torn,” said Selectman Lou Kahn, who said there was no way to calculate a rent based on the amount of space and intensity of use. “I’m inclined to give them a break,” he remarked, “but not the break they’re asking for.” The board asked Jolivette to provide more information on the services the senior center provided to the residents of Meredith and agreed to consider the request in the course of preparing the 2014 municipal budget. NEVADA from page 2 shooting, including some from as far as 60 miles away. Students from the middle school and neighboring elementary school were evacuated to the nearby high school, and classes were canceled.

You don’t know if your kid’s OK.” The shooting happened on the school’s campus and ended outside the school building, according to police. “I was deeply saddened to learn of the horrific shooting at Sparks Middle School this morning,” Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval said in a statement extending his thoughts and prayers to those affected. About 700 students in 7th and 8th grades are enrolled at the school, in a working class neighborhood.

“It’s not supposed to happen here,” Chanda Landsberry said. “We’re just Sparks — little Sparks, Nevada. It’s unreal.” A statement from Nicole Hockley, whose son Dylan was killed in the Connecticut shooting, appeared on the website of gun control advocacy group Sandy Hook Promise. “It’s moments like this that demand that we unite as parents to find commonsense solutions that keep our children — all children — safe, and prevent these tragedies from happening again and again,” the statement said. The Washoe County School District held a session in the spring in light of the Newtown tragedy to educate parents on its safety measures. The district has its own 38-officer police department. No officers were on campus at the time of the shooting. Sparks, a city of roughly 90,000 that sprung out of the railway industry, is just east of Reno.

SJOGREN’S SYNDROME If you know what Sjogren’s syndrome is, you probably work in the healthcare professions or you might just be ready for a try-out on Jeopardy. More likely, you either have this disease or know someone who has it. Sjogren’s is an autoimmune disease in which the white blood cells attack moisture-producing glands. One of the hallmark symptoms is dry mouth, although dry mouth can certainly result from other disorders and can even be caused by side effects from certain medications. Many problems are associated with a lack of sufficient saliva in your mouth. Saliva makes it possible to chew and swallow and helps to digest our food. It also prevents infection by controlling bacteria in the mouth, thereby protecting our teeth from decay. Although we don’t think about it, lack of saliva causes difficulty speaking. About 4 million Americans suffer from Sjogren’s syndrome and 9 out of 10 are women. Other symptoms may include a sore or cracked tongue, a change in taste or smell, and dry, gritty or burning sensation in the eyes. Currently, there is no cure for Sjogren’s syndrome, but sipping water throughout the day and especially during meals may be beneficial. Avoid alcohol and tobacco (they dry out the mouth), use a humidifier during sleep, and use sugarless products (gum, lozenges) containing a sweetener called Xylitol. Remember to tell your dentist or physician if you have dry mouth so he/she can make the proper diagnosis and suggest treatment.

FATALITY from page one road, and crashed into a tree. The momentum of the crash appeared to have caused the car — a 2002 BMW 325I — to roll onto its roof. In a written media statement, Chief Kenneth Borgia said Price likely died on impact due to massive trauma to his head and neck.

who knew Price and contacted police at 7:25 a.m. Borgia said a preliminary finding by a state medical examiner said the crash could have occurred as many as 12 hours before Price was found. His autopsy was scheduled for yesterday. Borgia said the accident is still under investigation. The Belknap Regional Accident Reconstruction Team was called and that section of North Barnstead Road was closed from the time police arrived in the morning until about 1:30 p.m. Police say 64-year-old Dennis Lalime lost control of his car at about 2 a.m., then struck multiple trees and rocks before coming to a rest. Lalime wasn’t injured. The Morning Sentinel reports that a nearby homeowner heard the crash and called police, who arrested Lalime on an operating under the influence charge.

Columbus Day weekend, the Lakes Region United U-13 Dvision 1 girls soccer team won the 2013 Capitol Cup. The tournament was played Saturday, Sunday and Monday at NHTI in Concord. This LRU team is a combination of Belmont, Gilford and Canterbury residents. On Sat LRU beat John Stark United 4-0 and tied the Hampton Attack 0-0. There were 2 brackets of 3 teams in the girls U-13 division, LRU was the 1 seed in their bracket after the Saturday games. They played Seacoast United in the semi-finals on Sunday and won 3-0. That win put LRU in the finals on Monday at 9 a.m. where they faced The Loudon Freedom who were 3-0 on Saturday and Sunday. After a 0-0 tie through the SANT BANI from preceding page with only three subs, were denied further chances with great goalkeeping and gutsy defense, each squad exhausted by the final whistle. Sant Bani will be logging some significant miles in the coming week, visiting Dublin School, Kimball Union Academy and Vermont Academy. Coach Todd Schongalla’s advice to his team: “Get some rest and keep up with your homework.”

first half, 12 minutes into the 2nd half Laurel Normandin scored the 1st goal of the game with a perfect shot to the top right corner of the goal from the 18 yard line. About 8 minutes later Elise Hall scored the 2nd goal for LRU to seal the 2-0 victory. LRU played the tournament with just 12 regular players from their normal roster, two were unable to play Columbus Day weekend. They grabbed two 10 year-olds who play on the U-11 Lakes Region United team, Becca Fleming and Morgan Hall, to help give the older girls some very much needed rest throughout the tournament. LRU was led by their outstanding defense, sweeper Chloe Sottak, stopper Lizzie Fleming and outside backs Katie Galambos and Haley Treamer along with goalie Hannah Perkins. This unit did not give up a goal the entire tournament and the team is 7-0 in the Division 1 NH Soccer League where they have only given up 1 goal the entire regular season. Center Midfielders Kenzie Donovan and Laurel Normandin did an outstanding job controlling the middle of the field the entire weekend and center mid Kaitlynn Delisle and striker Katie Gagnon did a fantastic job distributing the ball.

Organization raising funds for creation of football team for Belmont High School athletes Friends of Belmont Football (FOBF), a charitable organization, is currently raising funds toward its goal of making football a reality for Belmont High School student-athletes. Any Belmont High School athlete who has played football in younger recreational leagues can’t play in high school because Belmont doesn’t have a team. Current Belmont 8th graders playing football in Gilford won a championship last year and currently have a record of 5 and 1 so far this year. These kids have nowhere to play next year unless the school district can establish a co-operative team. FOBF members are determined to raise funds to help Belmont establish that partnership with another school district and have a combined football team. To help make this happen, Friends of Belmont Football is reaching out to the community for help with fundraising efforts. The Belmont Village Store is currently offering $.99 egg and cheese breakfast sandwiches through Nov.14. The store is donating 100% of proceeds from the sale of those sandwiches to FOBF. Additionally, donations can be made online at:, or checks made payable to The Friends of Belmont Football may be mailed to 552 Union Road in Belmont NH, 03220. PLAYOFFS from page 11 Division. To protect a first round home game, the boys must win both upcoming games to either keep their current standing or potentially improve in ranking. At the start of the season the boy’s determination to get back into postseason play for the second consecutive year wasn’t matched, at least initially, by their performance on the field. The team lost their first match of the season and was 3 and 3 through the first six contests. The team turned its season around on September 23 with a 6-0 win against Newfound. This win set off a seven-game winning streak, broken on October 16 by a 5-1 loss against neighboring rival Gilford. Coach Matt Dubois attested that it was the team’s hard work and practice that allowed the members to form a more fluid team. Last week’s loss against Gilford was a clear example of how communication loss and forgotten standard procedures on the field can negatively impact the team. “Making it to the playoffs is a huge accomplishment,” said senior Jake Sykes. “Losing against Hopkington in the second round last year was hard, but I know that our team has the potential to make to father than we did last year.” In response to making it to the playoffs, Dubois said, “The seniors have been working hard for three varsity seasons to get to this place, and have made much progress during these years. The playoffs will be challenge, as it’s hard with teams you haven’t played, but if the team plays consistently they should do well in the first few rounds.” This afternoon the boys will be traveling to Belmont to play the Red Raiders. Having already won against Belmont 3-1 for their first victory of the season, the team expects to manage another win today. The Senior Night game will be this Friday, October 25 starting at 5:30 p.m. The Sachems will host Mascoma Valley, a team which has only won two matches this season. The playoff schedule will be posted after the scores from this week’s games have been finalized. from preceding page for the tournament and outside midfielders Zoe Zimmermann and JuJu Estremera were amazing all 4 games running up and down the field. Head coach Brett Sottak would like to thank Seacoast Express United for putting on such a great tournament.

Applications for WLHN Children’s Auction funding due October 31 LACONIA — The WLNH Children’s Auction is accepting applications for funding from organizations in the Lakes Region until October 31. Molly King said yesterday that the growth of the auction has brought with it greater responsibility to distribute the proceeds to maximize the benefit to the community. As a result, the application process has changed. Applicants fall into four categories, each with a distinct mission. King urged organizations to choose the category that best describes their mission and submit the appropriate application. The application process, together with a description of the four categories is posted on the website, The first category consist of those organizations that serve the basic needs of children, including but not limited to food, clothing, shelter, hygiene and holiday gifts. Organizations that seek to mitigate or eliminate the need to provide the basic necessities and services for children fall into he second category. The third category includes organizations that invest in capital projects that improve the lives or children or strengthen the agencies

that serve them while agencies offering recreational opportunities to children who might not otherwise afford them compose the fourth category.The information required of organizations in each of the four categories is specified on the website. falling into each of the four categories. In 2012, the Children’s Auction distributed $345,000 of the $416,500 raised among 33 charitable and non-profit organizations in the Lakes Region. Organizations in the first category received $142,000, or 41 percent of the total; those in the second category $155,000, or 46 percent; those in the third category $16,580, or 5 percent; and those in the fourth category $27,000, or 8 percent. The directors held $1,000 in the account for the Doris Makely Memorial Sharing Smiles Scholarship. Likewise, a share of the proceeds have been kept in reserve in the event of an emergency in the community, while other funds have been earmarked to fund an independent audit of the auction. The Children’s Auction is run by an independent board of directors. — Michael Kitch

18% of N.H. moose hunters find success over weekend CONCORD (AP) — Warm temperatures and windy conditions kept the success rate down a bit for the first weekend of New Hampshire’s moose hunting season. New Hampshire Fish and Game says 18 percent of the 281 hunters who

received permits bagged moose during the hunt’s opening weekend, down from 25 percent last year. Moose biologist Kristine Rines says with their heavy winter coats, moose often bed down in the shade during warmer weather, causing them to not be as active.

7 BC reps bring home A’s on Liberty Alliance report cards CONCORD — Seven of the 13 Republican representatives from Belknap County were among the 52 members of the New Hampshire House of Representatives whose voting records earned A grades from the New Hampshire Liberty Alliance. The five Democrats in the county delegation were all graded D. The Liberty Alliance tracked about 60 bills that came before the House this year, scoring members according to whether their vote protected or enhanced individual freedom and personal responsibility or expanded government regulation and central authority. Posting the highest scores in the delegation, Representatives Guy Comtois of Barnstead and Michael Sylvia of Belmont were among the 17 House members to receive straight As. Representatives Bob Greemore and Colette Worsman of Meredith, Richard Burchell of Gilmanton, Chuck Fink of Belmont and Jane Cormier of Alton all were awarded grades

of A minus. Of six remaining county Republican representatives, Herb Vadney of Meredith scored B plus, Stephen Holmes of Alton and Bob Luther of Laconia both scored B and Dennis Field of Sanbornton scored B minus. The lowest scores among the Republicans were posted by Representatives Frank Tilton and Don Flanders of Laconia, both with C plus. Although the Republican representatives from Belknap County comprise just seven-percent of the 179 members of the GOP caucus in the House, they accounted for 13-percent of the grades of A or better on the Liberty Alliance scorecard. Among the county Democrats Representatives Beth Arsenault of Laconia and Ruth Gulick of New Hampton scored D plus, Lisa DiMartino of Gilford scored D and Ian Raymond of Sanbornton and David Huot of Laconia scored D minus. — Michael Kitch

France joins growing list of allies angry over NSA spying WASHINGTON (AP) — Joining a growing list of angry allies, France on Monday demanded an explanation from Washington of a report that the U.S. swept up 70 million French telephone records and text messages in its global surveillance net, even recording certain private conversations. The fallout prompted a phone call from President Barack Obama to President Francois Hollande and, the White House said, an acknowledgment by Obama that the episode raises “legitimate questions for our friends and allies” about how U.S. surveillance capabilities are employed. Hollande’s office issued a strongly worded statement afterward expressing “profound reprobation” over U.S. actions that it said intruded on the private lives of French citizens. Spying among friendly countries is classic tradecraft but the sweep and scope of the National Security Agency program have surprised allies and

raised indignation among those targeted — Germany, Mexico and Brazil among them. The report in Le Monde, co-written by Glenn Greenwald, who originally revealed the surveillance program based on leaks from former NSA analyst Edward Snowden, found that when certain phone numbers were used, conversations were automatically recorded. The surveillance operation also gathered text messages based on key words, Le Monde reported. “This sort of practice between partners that invades privacy is totally unacceptable and we have to make sure, very quickly, that this no longer happens,” French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said. “We fully agree that we cooperate to fight terrorism. It is indispensable. But this does not justify that personal data of millions of our compatriots are snooped on.”

HURRICANE from page 2 crews and said they were considering evacuations of low-lying areas. About 10,000 people already are living away from their homes a month after Manuel inundated whole neighborhoods and caused landslides that buried much of one village. It left behind drenched hillsides that pose serious landslide risks. David Korenfeld, head of Mexico’s National Water Commission, said Sunday that officials were pinning their hopes on a cold front moving from the north that could help steer Raymond away from the coast. “The cold front coming down is what makes it (Raymond) turn to the left, but that is a model,” Korenfeld said. “If that cold front comes down more slowly, this tropical storm ... can get closer to the coast.”

Forecasters said that even if Raymond stayed offshore, the storm could dump heavy rain and cause life-threatening flash floods and mudslides along the south-central Mexican coast. “There will be rain for the next 72 hours along the Pacific coast — very heavy rain, torrential rain,” Korenfeld said. A hurricane warning was in effect from Tecpan de Galeana, up the coast from Acapulco, north to the port of Lazaro Cardenas. A tropical storm warning was posted from Acapulco to Tecpan. Authorities in Guerrero, where Manuel caused about 120 deaths from flooding and landslides in September, closed seaports, set up 700 emergency shelters and urged residents in risk areas to take precautions.

LACONIA — Local author Carol Lee Anderson will talk about her new book on Meredith cartoonist Bob Montana during an appearance at the Belknap Mill on Wednesday, Oct. 23, beginning at 5:30 p.m. The New England Life of Cartoonist Bob Montana is a highly anticipated release from the History Press, providing an intimate glimpse into the life of the creator of the Archie comics. With a foreword by Dr. Bruce Heald, who personally knew Montana, the book draws upon family interviews and private photographs to present a portrait of the artist as well as the man behind the popular comics. “I wanted the book to celebrate Montana the man, not just his work as an artist,” Anderson said in an interview with The Laker. “He volunteered his time and talents to many causes, both local and national.” With the support of Montana’s daughter, Lynn, and her siblings, Anderson was able to learn about the artist’s home life in Meredith where he got involved in the community and was well-known for inviting local Boy and Girl Scouts to tour his studio. “He was very active locally and most people around Meredith knew Bob,” Anderson said. “He was approachable, just one of the locals, but people still speak of how talented he was and how much he gave back to the area.” He died of a heart attack in 1975 at the age of 54. Anderson will discuss the newly released book and sign copies at the event, which runs from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You want to know how things work, but you don’t feel compelled to figure out how people work -- at least not today. Your relationships are important, but social interaction just isn’t a very strong need of yours currently. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re looking for fun now, and you’ll find it bound up inside a knotty problem. When you’re in good company, the kind that makes you laugh by simply telling the truth, time flies. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your bold moves are favored. They won’t all work, but it’s better to make a big mistake than a small one, because you can recognize and correct the big ones. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 22). You’re a good friend to your family members, and the time you spend with loved ones brings delight to your world. You’ll be lucky in love through the holidays. In January, you’ll connect with work you hadn’t considered until then. There’s a windfall in February. The mission you start in April is a spiritual quest of sorts. Taurus and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 24, 2, 14 and 11.

by Chad Carpenter

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It’s important to you that you meet other people’s expectations or, better yet, surpass them. That’s why you’re not afraid to ask directly what people want from you. Don’t forget this crucial step today! TAURUS (April 20-May 20). They’ll say you are ahead of your time, but really you feel that the ones who should be leading the group into the future are slacking off on the job. In your estimation, things should be farther along. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re not trying to compete with anyone but your own best self. And yet, others may accuse you of being competitive, as they see you exceed the competence of your peers or even those in charge of you. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Each person has a burden to carry. You will allow for a bit of silliness, refusing to point out the error in it, because you suspect that this silliness helps to lighten the burden. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You have an instinct to be playful even in work-oriented situations. Not everyone will understand how this makes things better. That’s why your process is best kept private. Let them see the results and wonder how you got them. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You like a place that regularly fills with the kind of people you can relate to. You will avoid showing up in places where you don’t relate to the other customers and clients. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You do what must be done at the time it ought to be done. This is the essence of self-discipline. By completing one such task in this spirit, you prove that you can do almost anything. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Power is not an illusion as some suggest. You will witness a person getting things done because she has built the necessary relationships or because he knows how to ask. Watch and learn the ropes. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You like the way something looks, and it feels right, too. But in order for you to plunk down your money, attention or time, you have to also know that it works. Wait for the proof.

Saturday’s Answer

Page 22 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, October 22, 2013

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Tuesday, Oct. 22, the 295th day of 2013. There are 70 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 22, 1962, President John F. Kennedy delivered a nationally broadcast address in which he publicly revealed the presence of Soviet-built missile bases under construction in Cuba and announced a quarantine of all offensive military equipment being shipped to the Communist island nation. On this date: In 1746, Princeton University was first chartered as the College of New Jersey. In 1797, French balloonist Andre-Jacques Garnerin (gahr-nayr-AN’) made the first parachute descent, landing safely from a height of about 3,000 feet over Paris. In 1811, composer and piano virtuoso Franz Liszt was born in the Hungarian town of Raiding (RY’-ding) in present-day Austria. In 1836, Sam Houston was inaugurated as the first constitutionally elected president of the Republic of Texas. In 1883, the original Metropolitan Opera House in New York held its grand opening with a performance of Gounod’s “Faust.” In 1928, Republican presidential nominee Herbert Hoover spoke of the “American system of rugged individualism” in a speech at New York’s Madison Square Garden. In 1934, bank robber Charles “Pretty Boy” Floyd was shot to death by federal agents at a farm in East Liverpool, Ohio. In 1962, the hit comedy album “The First Family,” starring comedian-impressionist Vaughn Meader as President John F. Kennedy, was recorded before a studio audience in New York City. In 1968, Apollo 7 returned safely from Earth orbit, splashing down in the Atlantic Ocean. In 1979, the U.S. government allowed the deposed Shah of Iran to travel to New York for medical treatment — a decision that precipitated the Iran hostage crisis. French conductor and music teacher Nadia Boulanger died in Paris. In 1981, the Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization was decertified by the federal government for its strike the previous August. In 1986, President Ronald Reagan signed into law sweeping tax-overhaul legislation. In 2002, Bus driver Conrad Johnson was shot to death in Aspen Hill, Md., in the final attack carried out by the “Beltway Snipers.” Ten years ago: President George W. Bush defended U.S. policy from the Mideast to Iraq during a frank exchange with moderate Muslim leaders during a stopover in Bali, Indonesia. Five years ago: The fishing vessel Katmai sank in the Bering Sea off Alaska’s Aleutian Islands, killing seven crewmen; four survived. India launched its first mission to the moon to redraw maps of the lunar surface. (India lost contact with its lunar satellite Chandrayaan-1 last August.) One year ago: President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney met in the last of their three debates; although foreign policy was the topic, both kept circling back to their plans for strengthening the economy.

Pot-luck luncheon to benefit photographer Matt Fassett on Nov. 11

ALTON — A pot-luck luncheon is being planned for Sunday November 11 from 1-3 p.m. at The American Legion in Alton. The event is to be a fundraiser for local photographer Matt Fassett, who was recently robbed of his lap-top computer and all of his back-up drives. Knowing how much Matt Fassett has given to this and surrounding communities, and realizing how hard a time he will have financially trying to replace his equipment, local citizens are organizing the potluck to try to help him recoup a bit of his loss. They are in need of folks who would like to make/ bring a tasty dish for the event and are asking for a $5 donation for the luncheon. Main dishes, salads, side dishes, desserts---- all entrees are welcomed. Beverages will be available fro purchase by The Legion. The event is only open to adults. Since it is important to know ahead of time what dishes will be donated, call 875-3353 if you would like to participate. Anyone who cannot participate in the event can still make a donation through TD Bank at: The Matt Fassett Fund TD Bank 92 Main Street Alton, NH 03809 875-6111

The full course dinner, which is provided and served by the Meredith Rotary Club, will be prepared by Hart’s Turkey Farm Restaurant of Meredith. “Some of the holiday treats packaged in the gift bag for each guest will include jams and jellies from John Moulton of Moulton Farms, a holiday ornament

Dear Annie: My husband and I are in our mid-30s and happily married. We have sex almost every night. Here’s the problem: I found out this past summer that my husband is kinky. I saw him smelling my worn lingerie, as well as our teenage daughter’s and my mother’s. What makes a man want to do this with women’s clothing? I’ve never heard of women smelling men’s shorts. Is this normal? -- A Dumbfounded Wife Dear Dumbfounded: Your husband is turned on by the scent of worn women’s underwear. This is not an uncommon fetish. As long as everything else in your marriage and sex life is good, we wouldn’t worry too much about this, although you should insist he limit his fetish to your undergarments and leave his daughter’s and your mother’s alone. It’s creepy. Dear Annie: My boss has become a good friend. We eat lunch together most days and sometimes meet up after work. She is smart, fun, kind and generous. But she can’t stand it when others compliment me. She gets angry if anyone comments on my clothing or hair. A man in our office once said I “look nice today,” and she practically bit his head off, saying it’s rude to comment on a woman’s appearance in the presence of another woman. I recently got my hair cut, and she’s made enough nasty little barbs for me to know she doesn’t like it. That’s OK. I am not so childish or insecure that I need everyone to like my hair. I’m happy with it, and that’s enough. But another woman in our department jokingly said to our boss, “How do you like your ‘new’ assistant? Doesn’t she look sexy with that haircut?” My boss walked off in a huff. What can I do to stop this behavior? My husband says she is jealous, but there is no reason for that. I don’t believe I look any better than she does. We are similar in age, height and

weight. I would never be rude to her and don’t understand why she wants to hurt me. She gets defensive when criticized, so I’m hesitant about opening this can of worms. Any suggestions? -- Need a Thicker Skin Dear Need: Your boss could be jealous, which doesn’t need a rational cause, or she could be extremely possessive and not want others to notice you in a way that might divert your attention from her. As your boss, she should not be putting you in a position where you are afraid to speak up. Since you consider her a friend, the next time this happens, casually mention that her reaction gives the appearance that she’s jealous. Then change the subject. She may deny it and even be angry, but it might have the desired effect if it makes her examine her behavior more closely. Dear Annie: “Awaiting Your Help” is upset that a friend is bringing her husband to the monthly girls’ night out. I wish my friends had welcomed my husband to these evenings. While I was sharing good times with my girlfriends, my husband was out meeting women from the Internet in seedy motels. He gave me two sexually transmitted diseases before I found out. He appears to be a great guy on the surface, but underneath, he’s a slimeball who has lied and cheated for years. I no longer go to girls’ night out. My friends hate my husband and will not come to my house. I’ve joined a support group, but I miss my friends. My social life consists of a weekly trip to the grocery. I am sad and miserable. Please let your friend bring her husband to your nights out. Otherwise, he might find another form of entertainment. -- Not Living the Dream Dear Not Living: Why are you still with this lying, cheating slimeball? Get counseling, and if nothing changes, get out.

St. Andre Bessette Parish plans Nutracker Fair

LACONIA — St. Andre Bessette Parish is holding its annual Nutcracker Christmas Fair on Friday, November 8 from 5-8 p.m. and Saturday, November 9 from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Parish Hall on Gilford Avenue in Laconia. New this season is “Gifts To Go” which is assorted gift baskets for teachers, family members, or that special person that you would like to surprise with a Christmas remembrance. Hand sewn items will be for sale and a Nutcracker Raffle Table with quality new items and many gift cards from local businesses. Old favorites will include the Theme Baskets Table including a Leap Frog Gift Basket, the Jewelry Room Gently Used Books, the Cookie Walk, Baked Goods Table, Fr. Marc’s Pork Pies, and a Children’s Corner where there will be games for kids and a special visit from Santa Clause.

PLYMOUTH — The Keep the Heat On (KTHO) Committee is pleased to announce that the 9th annual KTHO fundraiser will take place at Plymouth State University’s Prospect Hall on Wednesday, January 15, 2014. This event, which includes a buffet dinner provided by over 20 local restaurants, silent and live auctions, and the always-informative Energy Room, raises money for fuel assistance to families in 15 local communities. As the need for assistance has grown over the years, the KTHO fundraising has increased to meet that need. After last year’s record-breaking auction success at the Plymouth Senior Center, the KTHO Committee determined that a larger venue was needed. Prospect Hall will fit the bill perfectly, providing the “elbow room” that guests need to comfortably browse and bid on silent auction items, and to peruse the live auction items in anticipation of bidding. Though the autumn foliage is still in its glory, the Plymouth Area Com-




munity Closet (PACC) is already gearing up for the winter heating season. State and Federal fuel assistance remain limited, which means that the money raised at the KTHO dinner and auction will be critical to addressing the need for help in Plymouth and the surrounding 14 communities. In addition to the proceeds from ticket sales, auctions, and contributions, the generosity of sponsors adds significantly to the amount of fuel assistance the PACC is be able to distribute. Last year, sponsors donated over $14,500 to KTHO, bringing the total to over $36,000. The Committee hopes to go over the $40,000 mark in 2014. Despite the new, larger venue at Prospect Hall, tickets for the 9th annual KTHO Dinner Auction will be available in limited numbers again this year— with the ticket price still just $35. Keep the Heat On is organized and sponsored by the Plymouth Area Democrats (PAD) partnered with PACC in their continued mission to provide assistance to those in need.

Books will be available for purchase.
