BELMONT — The Seavey Road car dealership had nothing to do with the alleged attempt by Gilmanton resident Tony A. Hartford’s to sell his father’s truck. According to the owners of Kelso’s Auto Sales, when Hartford first came to their dealership on October 25, the salesman on duty knew something was not right about Hartford and his offer to sell a 2008 GMC pickup and sent him see TRUCK page 12

St. Louis man arrested after making threats online
ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis police have arrested a social media manager for allegedly making online threats invoking the Boston Marathon bombings as the Red Sox prepared to play the Cardinals at Busch Stadium in the World Series. A probable cause statements released Tuesday said Robert Metzinger’s former employer at a St. Louis marketing firm alerted police last week to several threatening Twitter posts from an account that has since been disabled. Police say the tweets referenced the April bombings and the use of a pressure cooker. The probable cause statement did not quote the tweets directly but referred to an “implied threat to use an explosive device in or around the area of Busch Stadium during the upcoming World Series” and listed Metzinger’s work address at an office located eight blocks from the Cardinals’ downtown stadium. see THREATS page 13
Security issues surface for health care website WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama claimed “full responsibility” Wednesday for fixing his administration’s much-maligned health insurance website as a new concern surfaced: a government memo pointing to security worries, laid out just days before the launch. On Capitol Hill, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius apologized to frustrated people trying to sign up, declaring that she is accountable for the failures but also defending the historic health care overhaul. The website sign-up problems will be fixed by Nov. 30, she said, and the gaining of health insurance will make a positive difference in the lives of millions of Americans. Obama underscored the administration’s unhappiness with the problems so far: “There’s no excuse for it,” he said during a Boston speech to promote his signature
domestic policy achievement. “And I take full responsibility for making sure it gets fixed ASAP.” The website HealthCare.gov was still experiencing outages as Sebelius faced a new range of questions at the House Energy and Commerce Committee about a security memo from her department. It revealed that the troubled website was granted a temporary security certificate on Sept. 27, just four days before it went live on Oct. 1. The memo, obtained by The Associated Press, said incomplete testing created uncertainties that posed a potentially high security risk for the website. It called for a six-month “mitigation” program, including ongoing monitoring and testing. Security issues raise major new concerns on top of the long list of technical problems the administration is grappling with.
US says it doesn’t & won’t spy on UN UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The United Nations said Wednesday it has received assurances from the U.S. government that U.N. communications networks “are not and will not be monitored” by American intelligence agencies. But chief U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky would not comment on whether the world body had been monitored in the past, as reported recently by the German magazine Der Spiegel. Nesirky said the United Nations had been in contact with Washington about the reports that surfaced two months ago and has received a U.S. guarantee of no current or future eavesdropping. “Back in August when these reports first surfaced, we said we would be in touch with the relevant authorities,” he said. “And I can tell you that we were indeed in touch with the U.S. authorities. I understand that the U.S. authorities have given assurance that
the United Nations communications are not and will not be monitored.” Nesirky would not elaborate on whether spying had taken place and declined to answer related questions. For emphasis, he held up a piece of paper that said: “No comment.” A U.S. official told The Associated Press that “The United States is not conducting electronic surveillance targeting the United Nations headquarters in New York.” The official, who was not authorized to be named, spoke on condition of anonymity. It was not clear whether foreign U.N. missions in New York could be monitored by U.S. intelligence agencies. Former U.S. Ambassador John Bolton, who held the post at the United Nations from 2005-2006, would not comment on “what may or may not have gone on in the past” because he’s no longer in government.
“You accepted a risk on behalf of every user ... that put their personal financial information at risk,” Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., told Sebelius, citing the memo. “Amazon would never do this. ProFlowers would never do this. Kayak would never do this. This is completely an unacceptable level of security.” Sebelius countered that the system is secure, even though the site’s certificate, known in government parlance as an “authority to operate,” is of a temporary nature. A permanent certificate will be issued only when all security issues are addressed, she stressed. Spokeswoman Joanne Peters added separately: “When consumers fill out their online ... applications, they can trust that the information they’re providing is protected by stringent security standards and see SECURITY page 8
6 people shot dead in S. C. domestic dispute
GREENWOOD, S.C. (AP) — Bryan Sweatt was in the middle of a custody fight with his girlfriend over their 7-month-old daughter and facing a burglary charge that could put him in jail for years. His girlfriend’s father had warned him to stay away from his house and the dirt track Sweatt had built in the backyard for his all-terrain vehicles. Then on Tuesday afternoon, Sweatt broke into the parents’ house and waited for them and the girlfriend to come home, police said. When they did, Sweatt fatally shot his girlfriend, her parents and two children living there, before turning the gun on himself, Greenwood County Sheriff Tony Davis said. “Once you see a horrific scene like this it never leaves you. It’s with you day in and day out,” he said. The victims were identified as Richard Fields, 51; his wife, Melissa Fields, 49; their daughter Chandra Fields, 26; and two of the couple’s grandchildren who lived with them: William Robinson, 9; and Tariq Robinson, 11. see S.C. page 11

‘Normal’ never coming back? The first reports in early May of 1960 were that a U.S. weather plane, flying out of Turkey, had gone missing. A silent Moscow knew better. After letting the Americans crawl out on a limb, expatiating on their cover story, Russia sawed it off. Actually, said Nikita Khrushchev, we shot down a U.S. spy plane 1000 miles inside our country flying over a restricted zone. We have the pilot, we have the camera, we have the pictures. We have the hollow silver dollar containing the poisonedtipped needle CIA pilot Francis Gary Powers declined to use. Two weeks later, Khrushchev used the U-2 incident and Ike’s refusal to apologize to dynamite the Paris summit and the gauzy Spirit of Camp David that had come out of his 10-day visit to the USA. Eisenhower’s reciprocal trip to Russia was now dead. A year later, President Kennedy would be berated by Khrushchev in Vienna. The Berlin Wall would go up. And Khrushchev would begin secretly to install nuclear missiles in Cuba, 90 miles from Key West. Had there been no U-2 incident, would the history of the Cold War have been different? Perhaps. Yet, while there were critics of launching Power’s U-2 flight so close to the summit, Americans understood the need for espionage. Like us, the Soviets were installing ballistic missiles, every single one of which could incinerate an American city. Post 9/11, too, Americans accepted the necessity for the National Security Agency to retrieve and sift through phone calls and e-mails to keep us secure from terror attacks. Many have come to accept today’s risks of an invasion of their privacy — for greater security for their family. And there remains a deposit of trust among Americans that the NSA, the CIA and the Defense Intelligence Agency are not only working for us, they are defending us. How long Americans will continue to repose this trust, however, is starting to come into question. Last week, we learned that a high official of the U.S. government turned 200 private phone numbers of 35 friendly foreign leaders, basically the Rolodex of the president, over to the NSA for tapping and taping. Allied leaders, with whom America works toward common goals, have for years apparently had their private conversations listened to, transcribed and passed around by their supposed U.S. friends. Angela Merkel has apparently been the subject of phone taps since before she rose to the leadership of Germany and Europe. A victim of the East German Stasi, Ms. Merkel is not amused. We are told not to be naive; everyone does it. Spying, not only
between enemies but among allies, is commonplace. This is how the world works. Deal with it. But why are we doing this? Is it all really about coping with the terrorist threat? Or is it because we have the ability to do it, and the more information we have, even stolen surreptitiously from friends and allies, the better? Gives us a leg up in the great game of nations. U.S. diplomats say that one of their assignments abroad is to know what the host government is thinking and planning politically, economically, strategically. That this is an aspect of diplomacy. But relations among friendly nations are not unlike the NFL. While films are taken of rival teams’ games and studied, scouts observe practices, and rumors are picked up of injuries, there are lines that most opposing NFL teams do not cross. The lines of unethical conduct and criminality. To learn that an owner or coach of one NFL franchise had wiretapped the home phones of coaches and players of a Super Bowl rival would, if revealed, be regarded as rotten business. What kind of camaraderie, cooperation or friendship can endure in an environment where constant snooping on one’s closest friends is accepted practice? In the Nixon White House, there were serious leaks that revealed our secret bombing of Communist sanctuaries in Cambodia to protect our troops, and of our fallback position in the strategic arms talks. Wiretaps were planted on aides to Henry Kissinger and White House staffers who had no knowledge of what had been leaked. Relationships were altered, some poisoned for a lifetime. Why should we not expect a similar reaction among foreign friends who discover their personal and political secrets have been daily scooped up and filed by their American friends, and found their way into the president’s daily intelligence brief? The Cold War was a clash of ideologies and empires for the future of the world. Men took drastic measures to preserve what they had. At the end of the Cold War, the old tactics and measures were not set aside, but improved upon, and now are no longer restricted for use against the likes of al-Qaida, but against allies. At the Cold War’s end, the late Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick talked hopefully of America becoming again “a normal country in a normal time.” Seems as though the normal times are never coming back. (Syndicated columnist Pat Buchanan has been a senior advisor to three presidents, twice a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination and the presidential nominee of the Reform Party in 2000. He won the New Hampshire Republican Primary in 1996.)
LETTERS Americans now have to be fearful of what they say, write or think To The Daily Sun, Are we seeing the end of American culture? Recent events have caused me to look a little closer into what is our American culture, and what’s happening to it. Maybe it’s because I’m a little older and wiser and think the younger generation doesn’t care about anything anymore. According to Wikipedia, American culture began with Jeffersonian democracy. Our sports, holidays, prevalent ideals, arts and entertainment give a strong sense of national pride among the population as a whole. Some call it American exceptionalism. We’re proud to be American. I’m proud to be American. American culture incorporates many Christian ideals specifically about redemption, salvation, conscience, and morality, ie, confession and forgiveness to public figures. Christians comprise 80.2 percent of the American public. Atheists, 4 percent. Then why do atheists control the thoughts of the rest of the country?? Why can’t we exhibit the 10 Commandments or prayer in public places if we want? They call it “Political Correctness”. That 4 percent may be offended! What about the 80 percent being offended by NOT having their say? Other diminishing cultural norms are the family unit, illegality of hard drugs, the majority of Americans speaking out (they are silent!), volunteerism, nudity in movies. If the new culture is “do whatever we want”, then why political correctness to stop one from doing or saying whatever he
wants? Why do we now have “victims” where before, people would excuse misuse of language as a flaw of that person’s thoughts. Now Americans have to be fearful of what they say, of what they write, and of what they think. They have to be afraid of using the wrong word, a word denounced as offensive, or insensitive, or racist, sexist, or homophobic, even when that wasn’t the intent. You could be accused of a “hate crime” even though that wasn’t the intent. Such restraints on our speech is an offense against the First Amendment. Yes, we don’t want to hurt others, but it’s not always intended that way. Political correctness was intended to help instill sensitivity in the student body of colleges, and encourage them to refer to ethnic and social groups in a politically correct manner. Then came the “thought police”. Now, it is at the point that on Halloween, in some places, children are not allowed to dress as cowboys or Indians! It this what it is coming down to? How can we stop this? My favorite football team is the Washington Redskins. Heavens, they’ve been Redskins for 100 years. Indian peoples don’t care if they have that name. It may be one tribe somewhere who complained, because now complaining results in money, lawsuits, etc. My gosh, people, grow up! We want our First Amendment right to Freedom of Speech back!

My votes will go to Brenda Baer for council & Ed Engler for mayor To The Daily Sun, The election is fast approaching our city. By now, hopefully all residents of our great city, have had a chance to listen to the candidates as they explained what their position is in regards to Laconia. I wish that I could vote for all the candidates in all the wards, but I live in Ward 4, and will vote once again for Brenda Baer. She has supported our ward and city thoroughly through the years. As is the case for mayor, we will choose a new mayoral candidate this year. This
will be a very important position for the city. If you have met these candidates or read of what they both feel is the best position for the city, then you are prepared, to make your choice. My choice is Ed Engler. I believe Ed is ready for the challenge and has the leadership to ensure the direction of the city remains positive and forward to a sound future. Please join me in voting for Ed Engler for Mayor of Laconia. Don Vachon Laconia

LETTERS Pay-As-You-Throw is not dead & Tom Tardif will vote against it To The Daily Sun, Bob Hamel is running for the Ward 5 Laconia City Council seat for a 5th 2-year term against former Mayor Tom Tardif. Hamel doesn’t believe his constituents know what they are talking about. At the Laconia City Council Meeting on April 24, 2013 for recycling options, “Councilor Hamel stated that in looking at all the letters he would have to say that 70 percent were misrepresented by not having the facts about what the PAYT program actually is. If you read the letters most of them are emotional and that is understandable but the facts that people believe are how the program works are wrong and that is a problem. Councilor Hamel has read the comments closely and the people are misguided.” Yet Laconia Mayor Mike Seymour did listen to the voters who elected him. From The Laconia Daily Sun on April 23, 2013, “Conflicted Mayor says pay-as-you-throw right way to go but most Laconians don’t want it Seymour estimated that approximately 80-percent of some 300 comments he has received expressed opposition to PAYT.” At the Weirs Action Committee Laconia City Council Debate on October 25, Moderator Neil Young started the debate off by asking who supported Pay-As-You-Throw versus Mandatory Recycling. The Citizen reported, Ward 5 City Councilor Bob
Hamel, “added that right now, Pay-AsYou-Throw is a thing of the past, as the mandatory recycling trial period has been a success at about 25 percent of the community recycling.” The motion made at a special meeting for Pay-As-You-Throw on April 24, 2013: “Councilor Baer made a motion to adopt Option #3, Mandatory Recycling for a six month trial period. Seconded by Councilor Doyle.” The motion made by Councilor Baer is for a period from July 1st to December 31, 2013.” Pay-As-You-Throw is not a thing of the past. PAYT will come up for a vote again after December 31st. PAYT is a regressive tax. Blacks Law: “A tax levied at rates which increase less rapidly than the increase of the tax base, thus bearing more heavily on the poorer taxpayers.” At the April 24th meeting, I asked what the savings in property tax per thousand would be if PAYT was implemented? City Manager Myers replied, “that a ball park number would be $.25 to $.27 per thousand.” This a regressive tax, the more your property is worth the higher your savings, renters will see no savings just a tax of $2 for every 10 cent garbage bag. That’s a $1.90 tax on every garbage you buy. Vote for Tom Tardif Ward 5 City Councilor. He will listen to the Laconia voters and vote against PAYT David Gammon Laconia
Obamacare causing damage to the very fabric of our nation To The Daily Sun, In September I received my notice from my Health Insurance Company, MVP Healthcare, that my health insurance plan I have had since 1982 will no longer be available because of the Obamacare requirements. So much for If you like your plan you can keep it. Senator Shaheen and Congresswoman Shea-Porter will never know what it is like to be 62 years old and lose your health insurance because they are exempted from Obamacare. They will most likely be getting free health insurance on us taxpayers for life. In their zeal to beat their opponents, Obamacare became the Democrat’s orthodoxy, they ignored all the warnings and pushed this mess through Congress. Now literally millions are being told
their health insurance is cancelled at the end of their policy year causing untold stress and anxiety to those affected. This of course is not to mention the increased cost to replace the old plan with a new one. I doesn’t matter anymore if Obamacare is repealed or collapses under it’s own weight. The damage this is causing to the fabric of nation is done. Senator Shaheen and Congresswoman Shea-Porter should be ashamed of themselves. Their conduct in support of Obamacare is a disgrace. They either didn’t want to know consequences of the legislation or didn’t care. Either way it is unforgivable. They need to be held accountable in 2014. James Edgar Meredith

To The Daily Sun, As with my letters of the past I take the first paragraph to name my letter. This one I will name “The New Critical Thinking”. At a meeting of the Shaker Regional School District with parents and taxpayers to sell the decision to participate in Obama’s federal school initiative called “Common Core” a lot of really good, critical questions were asked concerning the new education guidelines and what would be changed and left out in the new curriculum. A lot of questions were ignored and a lot of those answered were based on rhetoric and not facts. One of the statements from a parent was that the schools no longer teach “Critical Thinking”. The response was that Critical Thinking was a vital part of the curriculum. So I decided to go back to my college books and the course I took called “Critical Thinking” and apply it to both this answer and the decision to go with Common Core. Critical thinking, as it used to be taught, was a process used to determine a conclusion based on facts. Here is how the process used to be taught: 1. Choose a subject. This could be any subject such as political, science, the meaning of a book or a decision to go with a certain education curriculum. 2. Collect as many facts from as many diversified sources as you can on the subject. 3. Vet the facts and sources to verify the legitimacy of those facts. Use all the facts that pass the vetting process. 4. Organize the facts into points of conclusion. More than one conclusion may result from the organization. 5. Weigh the facts in each conclusion to determine the most reasonable conclusion. 6. Present your conclusion and why you developed this conclusion instead of others available using your vetted facts as support. 7. Open a forum for detractors who bring vetted counter facts that you might have missed to challenge or enhance your conclusion. The forum is based on facts concerning the conclusions of the chosen subject only. The re-defined method of Critical Thinking being taught and used: 1. Choose a subject. Same as above. 2. Make a conclusion. 3. Collect facts from any source that will back your conclusion. 4. Present fictitious detractor conclusions with a high level of emotion as the only reasonable conclusion and sell your sources as the most qualified experts in this subject. 5. Avoid an open forum. If one must happen, avoid answering questions or give answers that distract from the question but don’t really answer them. Ridicule, demeanor and demonize
personally any detractors and sources that counter your conclusion. Avoid questions and discussions based on any facts, including your own. A sample of this new method can be found in one of the answers a parent asked in the meeting about Common Core not teaching to a Bell Curve. The answer was along the lines that the Bell Curve is an old teaching model that does not fit in the new age of education. Instead, the Common Core will draw a new and improved standard which is a straight line starting low and going high. This would place the greatest population of students in the top of the learning curve (line). The new curriculum will then be changed and teachers retrained to obtain these results. The problem is that the old Bell Curve was not an arbitrary curve made up, then taught to. The Bell Curve came from education statistics collected over hundreds of years from different societies and systems. The statistics take the averages, percentiles and standard deviations of a populace and each and every time the standard deviation (that makes the bell looking curve) came out the same. In the past the Bell Curve was used as a check to see if your curriculum/ teaching or testing was skewed from the norm. You had several choices to fix this if it was such as changing the percentage range on each grade (ie A+, A, B etc) for a test, or re-teach the block with a different approach and so on. What is totally ludicrous is to create an arbitrary curve for a populous and then completely change your curriculum in an attempt to match your education results to the curve. In the case of the new Common Core chart, the value of the top of the chart or highest level of education will end up being what is now the top of the Bell Curve which is the median (middle level or grade of C) of the current system. For any of you readers that are lost with the statistical information, all you have to remember is “The Dumbing Down Of America”. In the end, knowing both the original and the re-defined methods of Critical Thinking, it becomes easy to find the real conclusion that the Shaker Regional School District has chosen. It has nothing to do with the effectiveness of our great teachers, the curriculum in respect to preparing our children to function in society and prepare for continuing education or bringing our education system up to a higher standard. The true conclusion to go with Common Core is to receive large amounts of federal funding (at what-ever cost to our students, communities and society) and nothing more. Dave Nix Belmont

LETTERS I’m once again voting for Armand Bolduc’s long record of service To The Daily Sun, On the Ward 6 election: Tony Felch’s recent statement in an article recognizing his opponent Armand Bolduc’s “name recognition” advantage certainly struck home to me. I’ve known Armand for most of my 20+ years as a Laconia resident. I am also familiar with the many accomplishments of the Bolduc family that arise out of their dedicated commitment to community and country. Tony sure is right; Armand and the whole Bolduc family are well known to us Laconians. Well known for their philosophy and practice of service as a way of life. There is no doubt that our city is a far better place to work and live because of the efforts of the Bolduc family and Armand in particular. We are very fortunate to have such a fine man on our City Council, one with so much experience with and knowledge of our city and its government. I’ve seen an action packed 20 years of Laconia history, a period during which we all could all count on Armand’s

wisdom and his voice of reason. Having heard Tony Felch’s campaign slogan “time for a change” I was interested in hearing just what that means at the candidate’s night forum held at Weirs Beach last week. It was good to have the opportunity to meet all of the candidates, Tony Felch among them. Tony seems to be a nice fellow and I applaud his willingness to serve. As the evening progressed though, I kept waiting to hear what the Ward 6 challenger would change and how he would do it. I’m still waiting. Ward 6 is facing a choice between the tried and true and the shiny and new. On the one hand we have Armand and his long record of service and accomplishment, on the other an unproven new face with an unknown agenda. I am urging my friends in Ward 6 to get out and vote for Armand Bolduc for City Council. His service and accomplishments are second to none; a victory for Armand is a victory for us all.

Wind farms declare themselves ‘wanted’ in spite of what we say To The Daily Sun, New Hampshire’s electricity prices are ranked 5th highest in the country. Expect the average monthly electricity bill to noticeably rise with the addition of wind farms in this state. New Hampshire’s Energy Board will soon point to a number of reasons for the increasing cost of electricity. It will most likely be labeled as a grid upgrade not directed at wind farms. New Hampshire would easily bump New York — from fourth to fifth place. Additional wind farms, transmission lines, substations combined with other grid upgrades — will surely put us into third or fourth place in less than five years. Another significant factor, that will drive up our monthly electrical bill, is the variation between previous estimates and actual costs. As N.H. electrical consumers, we will not use the electricity from these wind farms. The generated power is being shipped to southern states. These southern states are benefiting from us in more ways than one. Shouldn’t southern states be held accountable for all of the decommissioning costs — if approved? Why aren’t we talking about this?
They shouldn’t be able to have their cake and eat it too, right? After all — southern states are the ones demanding the power and they are the ones outsourcing their green credits through N.H. land. N.H. is already a net exporter of electricity — meaning we already produce more electricity than we consume. Why aren’t they developing their land first? So much for engagement with communities. So much for a town hall meeting — it’s become a dictatorship. We have declared our towns “NOT WILLING HOSTS” to wind farms. Yet they declare and promote themselves as being wanted by our community. On November 5th at 6 p.m. — come to the Alexandria Town Hall and listen for yourself. Iberdrola will lay out their plans for our community. I believe it would be a great learning point for many to see first hand what is unfolding here. You’ve all seen the inside of a town hall — just come, listen and educate yourself. This is not who or what we want leading us. Please attend... Ray Cunningham Bridgewater
Putting our inmates on Medicaid will produce no real savings To The Daily Sun, I read the piece in Wednesday’s Sun with amusement and concern. Of course it would be cheaper to care for inmates with Medicaid as opposed to real insurance because that is cost shifting the actual costs onto the hospitals, providers, and ultimately patients with insurance. This is a Ponzi scheme to make the books look better without any real savings. Prisoners are not good patients in many
cases. Taking care of them brings extra problems with increased risk of lawsuit, active non-compliance with recommended care and other issues. If the state tries to make this change, I would predict they will find many doors closed to these patients in the medical community, adding further costs to the bottom line. This is not a good or fair idea and should be rejected. John M. Grobman MD Sanbornton

Citizens Bank grant makes funds available for downtown Laconia facade improvements By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — A tripartite partnership of the Main Street Initiative, Belknap Economic Development Council (BEDC) and Citizens Bank Foundation yesterday announced a program that could lead to an investment of $70,000 to enhance the facades and signage of commercial properties within the downtown loop described by Beacon Street East and Beacon Street West. In September, the Citizens Bank Foundation, which was established in 2012, launched its “Citizens’ Growing Communities” initiative by awarding $70,000 in grants, including $35,000 to the Main Street Initiative for the Beacon Street Loop Facade Improvement Program. “A good bank gives back to the communities it serves and the to the people who live there,” said Kathleen Reardon, senior vice-president and director of public affairs of Citizens Bank.
Partners in the Beacon Street Loop Facade project, from left John Moriarty, president of the Main Street Initiative, Kathleen Reardon, senior vice-president of Citizens Bank and Carmen Lorentz, executive director of the Belknap Economic Development Council, cast their eyes up and down Main Street yesterday, imagining how it will look after a facelift.

“Strengthening the economic health and vitality of our local communities is a priority at Citizens,” she continued. “We believe our grants will help enhance the character and overall well-being of these neighborhoods, support small businesses and spur additional investments in these communities.” Anticipating the next day’s headline, John Moriarty, president of the Main Street Initiative, said “downtown takes another giant step forward.” He said that “the facade improvement program will help local property and business owners grow their businesses and will contribute to the strength of downtown.” He said that the program was another step toward “putting downtown Laconia on the map where it belongs” as “the kick-ass place to do business and have fun.” Property owners or commercial tenants inside the loop may apply for grants in amounts up to $5,000, which must be matched dollar-for-dollar. Carmen Lorentz, executive director of the BEDC, said that the Main Street Loan Program administered by the BEDC, which lends up to $10,000, may be able to assist applicants with the necessary matching funds. Applicants must provide proof that the property is insured and the taxes are current. Religious and political organizations are not eligible for funding. Applications must be submitted by 4 p.m. on Valentine’s Day, Friday, February 14, 2014, awards will be announced In March and projects must be completed by July 31, 2014. A committee of three, consisting of Lorentz, Shanna Saunders, city planning director and Christine Grenier, vice-preisdent of Citizens Bank, will score the applications according to five criteria, including its aesthetic and economic impacts, as well as a set of design guidelines accompanying the application package.. Application packages are available from the Main Street Initiative at www.LaconiaMainStreet.org or the Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce at 383 South Main Street. SECURITY from page 2 that the technology underlying the application process has been tested and is secure. Security testing happens on an ongoing basis using industry best practices.” The security certificate is required under longstanding federal policy before any government computer system can process, store or transmit agency data. The temporary certificate was approved by Medicare chief Marilyn Tavenner, the senior HHS official closest to the rollout. No major security breaches have been reported. The memo said, “From a security perspective, the aspects of the system that were not tested due to the ongoing development, exposed a level of uncertainty that can be deemed as a high risk for the (federal marketplace website).” It recommended setting up a security team to address risks and conduct daily tests, and said a full security test should be conducted within two to three months of the website going live. A separate page stated that “the mitigation plan does not reduce the risk to the (website) itself going into operation on October 1, 2013. However, the added protections do reduce the risk to the overall Marketplace operations and will ensure that the ... system is completely tested within the next 6 months.” That page was signed by three senior technical officials below Tavenner at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. All the officials deal with information security issues. Republicans opposed to Obama’s health care law are calling for Sebelius to resign. She apologized to people having trouble signing up but told the committee that the technical issues that led to frozen screens and error messages are being cleared up on a daily basis. Sebelius’ forthright statement about her ultimate accountability for problems with the sign-up rollout came as Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., peppered her with questions about the “debacle.” “Hold me accountable for the debacle,” Sebelius see next page

Art gallery opens in Historic Belknap Mill LACONIA — Lending voice to its tag line “Where Art and History Come to Life,” the Belknap Mill Society yesterday added a gallery, featuring the work of juried artists, to the offerings of the oldest unaltered textile mill in the United States. David Stamps, president of the society, said that when vacant space on the second floor failed to attract a tenant, Peter Ellis suggested moving the administrative offices upstairs and opening a gallery downstairs. He said that Ellis and Tom Tardif designed and outfitted the 1,000-square-foot space. Recalling the mission of the mill — “EducationArt-History-Humanities” — Andre Paquette, vicepresident of the board and acting executive director, explained that the gallery will feature the works of juried artists in a variety of mediums — oil, water-
color, charcoal, digital drawings, collage and ceramics — that will be offered for sale. The society will receive a commission from each sale, which will be applied to the support of the mill. At the opening works by eight artists were on display, including Roger Gagne’s images of Canterbury Shaker Village, watercolors and oils by M.L. John, Jeri Ryan Bothamley, Lorraine Gateriewictz, Liz Wilson, Carole Groenke, digital drawings by Marian Federspiel and ceramics with pre-Columbian and Egyptian motifs by Devitt Liptak. Paquette said that artists are welcome to apply to show their work at the gallery simply by calling the mill at 524-8813 and requesting an application. — Michael Kitch
from preceding page responded. “I’m responsible.” Rep. Henry Waxman of California, the ranking Democrat on the committee, scoffed at Republican “oversight” of a law they have repeatedly tried to repeal.
“I would urge my colleagues to stop hyperventilating,” said Waxman. “The problems with HealthCare.gov are unfortunate and we should investigate them, but they will be fixed. And then every American will have, finally have, access to affordable health insurance.”

Red Sox win World Series BOSTON (AP) — There hasn’t been a party like this in New England for nearly a century. Turmoil to triumph. Worst to first. David Ortiz and the Boston Red Sox, baseball’s bearded wonders, capped their remarkable turnaround by beating the St. Louis Cardinals 6-1 in Game 6 on Wednesday night to win their third World Series championship in 10 seasons. Shane Victorino, symbolic of these resilient Sox, returned from a stiff back and got Boston rolling with a three-run double off the Green Monster against rookie sensation Michael Wacha. John Lackey became the first pitcher to start and win a Series clincher for two different teams, allowing one run over 6 2-3 innings 11 years after his Game 7 victory as an Angels rookie in 2002. With fans roaring on every pitch and cameras flashing, Koji Uehara struck out Matt Carpenter for the final out. The Japanese pitcher jumped into the arms of catcher David Ross while Red Sox players rushed from the dugout and bullpen as the Boston theme “Dirty Water” played on the publicaddress system. “I say I work inside a museum, but this is the loudest the museum’s been in a long time,” outfielder Jonny Gomes said. And the Red Sox didn’t have to fly the trophy home. For the first time since Babe Ruth’s team back in 1918, Boston won the title at Fenway Park. The 101-year-old ballpark, oldest in the majors, was packed with 38,447 singing, shouting fans anticipating a
celebration 95 years in the making. There wasn’t the cowboy-up comeback charm of “The Idiots” from 2004, who swept St. Louis to end an 86-year title drought. There wasn’t that cool efficiency of the 2007 team that swept Colorado. This time, they were Boston Strong — playing for a city shaken by the marathon bombings in April. After late-season slumps in 2010 and 2011, the embarrassing revelations of a chicken-and-beer clubhouse culture that contributed to the ouster of manager Terry Francona, and the daily tumult of Bobby Valentine’s oneyear flop, these Red Sox grew on fans. Just like the long whiskers on the players’ faces, starting with Gomes’ scruffy spring training beard. “As soon as we went to Fort Myers, the movie’s already been written,” Gomes said. “All we had to do was press play, and this is what happened.” Ortiz, the only player remaining from the 2004 champs, was the MVP after a Ruthian World Series. He batted .688 (11 for 16) with two homers, six RBIs and eight walks — including four in the finale — for a .760 on-base percentage in 25 plate appearances. Even slumping Stephen Drew delivered a big hit in Game 6, sending Wacha’s first pitch of the fourth into the right-center bullpen. By the time the inning was over, RBI singles by Mike Napoli and Victorino had made it 6-0, and the Red Sox were on their way. see next page

Gilford School Board reaches agreement with union
from preceding page And now, all over New England, from Connecticut’s Housatonic River up to the Aroostook in Maine, Boston’s eighth championship can be remembered for the beard-yanking bonding. The win capped an emotional season for the Red Sox, one heavy with the memory of the events that unfolded on Patriots Day, when three people were killed and more than 260 wounded in bombing attacks at the Boston Marathon. The Red Sox wore “Boston Strong” logos on their left sleeves and erected a large emblem on the Green Monster as a constant reminder. A “B Strong” logo was mowed into center-field grass at Fenway. “All those that were affected in the tragedy — Boston Strong!” Victorino said. Red, white and blue fireworks fired over the ballpark as Commissioner Bud Selig presented the World Series trophy to Red Sox owners John Henry, Tom Werner and Larry Lucchino, leaving a smoky haze over the field. “It was an awesome atmosphere here tonight,” Lackey said. Among the players blamed for the indifferent culture at the end of the Francona years, Lackey took the mound two days shy of the second anniversary of his elbow surgery and got his first Series win since the 2002 clincher. He pitched shutout ball into the seventh, when Carlos Beltran’s RBI single ended the Cardinals’ slump with runners in scoring position at 0 for 14. Junichi Tazawa came in with the bases loaded and retired Allen Craig on an inning-ending grounder to first. Brandon Workman followed in the eighth and Uehara finished.

GILFORD — The school district and the Gilford Education Association have agreed on and the union membership has ratified a 3-year collective bargaining agreement that will add $111,798 to the salary and benefits portion of the 2014-2015 school budget. If approved at annual Town Meeting, the agreement will be in effect from July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2017 and affects 121 education professionals including teachers, guidance counselors, specialists and other professional staff. Budget increases total another $257,911 in 20152016 and an additonal $260,323 in 2016-2017. The contract amounts will appear on the SB-2 Official Ballot in March. According to state law, the voters can vote up or down on the dollar amount of the contract but the amount cannot be changed during the annual deliberative session part of the annual meeting. According to Superintendent Kent Hemingway and School Board Chair Sue Allen, the new contract represents an average 3 percent annual raise for the next three years. “Where the collaboration happened is with the S.C. from page 2 Davis didn’t specify a motive for the shootings, but said it appears they stemmed from a “domestic violence situation.” He said Sweatt felt that Chandra Fields wasn’t allowing him to see their infant child often enough.

health care benefits,” Hemingway said, noting that every dollar increase in health care costs not only costs the taxpayers and employees money but represents money that leaves the community. Savings of $156,056 in the first year in the benefits line represents what both described as a unified approach to the rising costs of health care. Hemingway said the union and the administration jointly embarked on a health care review in preparation for the recent contract talks and all parties agreed and realized that rising health care costs were the single biggest driver of school budget increases. He said the biggest change is the elimination of the current $1 mail-in prescription program employees have enjoyed. The other significant health care change was an agreement to provide a Matthew-Thornton HMO plan on the menu of health care options. Hemingway said the Blue Cross Anthem plan is still available for employees who want to pay the additional cost but the basic insurance program is a different model. Allen said the school district agreed to pay about 95-percent of the costs of the new base health plan in exchange for the HMO-type base plan. in the Fields’ house, stating that he was on the edge and contemplating suicide, before hanging up. It’s unclear how many — if any — victims had been shot before he made the call at 5:54 p.m. Tuesday. A police report said a dispatcher heard a woman in the background say: “Do not point that at me” before the call was disconnected.

BAIL from page one Kenneth Dukette, 22, of Dewey Street is charged with burglary, criminal threatening (use of a deadly weapon), simple assault, first degree assault, kidnapping, two counts of felony criminal restraint, felony theft by unauthorized taking, and armed robbery for his alleged actions Tuesday afternoon. “This is beyond the pale,” said City Prosecutor Jim Sawyer while making his argument for $100,000 cash-only bail. “It’s like something out of a movie.” Dukette’s attorney Justin Littlefield had argued that $100,000 cash-only bail was punitive and that his client should be released on $50,000 cash or corporate surety. He said if his client posted bail, he would live in Gilford. According to affidavits obtained from the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division, Dukette, who had covered his face with a white cloth, went into the victim’s apartment at 1166 North Main Street and then his bedroom just before 4 p.m. and began hitting him with his fists. At some point he allegedly hit him in the head with the butt end of what the victim
told police looked like an Uzi submachine gun. A second man, said police, was holding a silver revolver and pointing it at the head of the victim’s girlfriend. His face was covered by a mask, said police. Dukette allegedly ordered the victim to give him the combination of his gun safe, threatening that “he would shoot both of them.” The male victim knew Dukette but told police he didn’t know who the other man was. The victim also told police he opened the safe after which Dukette ordered him and his girlfriend to their knees where they were both handcuffed and then bound together with a cell phone cord. The victims were forced into the bathroom. Affidavits said the victim told Dukette he didn’t have a Para Ordnance 1911 (a Canadian manufactured handgun) but Dukette found the gun and $440 in a desk door. He allegedly took both. The victim told police Dukette was “very angry that he had been lied to” and that he put the loaded gun he had just found to his face and told him he was going to shoot him for lying to him.
Dukette and the second man left the apartment and got into a car that the victim described as black with a temporary, paper license plate. The victim told police he thought the car belonged to Dukette’s girlfriend. Affidavits said police dispatchers were able to identify the owner of the car as Dukette’s girlfriend. Capt. Matt Canfield said police immediately issued a county-wide Be-On-the-Lookout-For alert for Dukette and the car. He said yesterday that multiple police officers participated in the arrest and since the call came during a shift change, a few officers and all supervisors stayed until Dukette could be apprehended. At 5:55 p.m. Senior Patrol Officer Bob Cameron spotted the car on Highland Street and followed it out Gilford Ave. to the Gilford line. Canfield said multiple officers, including police from Gilford surrounded the car took Dukette into custody at gun point. Police said they saw an Uzi-like long gun and a black handgun on the front passenger floor. The barrel of the long gun had what appeared to be blood on it. Both were Airsofts (weapons that propel plastic spheres via a discharge of compressed air). Police got a search warrant for the car and affidavits said gloves — one set with blood on them — a black sweatshirt, two cell phones, and prescription bottles with the victim’s name on them were recovered. Police also found some cash but Canfield said he didn’t know if it was the same cash as that taken from the victim. Canfield said the Para Ordnance gun was not recovered and the second man described to police by the victim was not in custody as of 5 p.m. yesterday. In court yesterday, Sawyer used the severity of the allegations as justification for the $100,000 cashbail request. “If convicted, he faces decades in jail,” Sawyer said, arguing that alone was enough reason for Dukette to flee the area as well as present a danger to the general community. In addition to the new charges, Dukette pleaded guilty to second-degree assault for stabbing a man on May 30, 2010. Records obtained from the Belknap County Superior Court show Dukette pleaded guilty to stabbing a man who had previously dated his girlfriend at the time. The victim in that case said Dukette pulled a knife on him during a verbal argument at an apartment on Pleasant Street and he tried to stop Dukette from stabbing him by grabbing him in a bear hug. He said Dukette stabbed him twice in the back. Charged initially with one count each of firstdegree and second-degree assault, Dukette pleaded guilty to second-degree assault on November 17, 2010 in exchange for having the state drop the firstdegree assault charge. He was sentenced to 12 months in the Belknap County House of Corrections with all but 60 days suspended. One of the conditions of his release was that the balance of the sentence could be brought forward for five years after the date of his conviction. He was also ordered to pay $4,605.48 to Lakes Region General Hospital. Police ask anyone with any information on the North Main Street incident to call 524-5257. — Gail Ober TRUCK from page one on his way. Relying on police affidavits filed with circuit court, The Daily Sun reported on Tuesday that the dealership paid Hartford $4,000 for the truck, which was registered in his father’s identical name. Kelso’s owner John Caravona, however, said Wednesday that was not the case. He said that a third man on the car lot that day apparently overheard the conversation between Hartford and the salesman and offered to buy the truck directly from Hartford. Caravona said he was not aware that any money exchanged hands but if it did, his dealership didn’t participate in the transaction or have any knowledge of it. Hartford has been charged with auto theft in Gilmanton and receiving stolen property in Belmont. He entered non-guilty pleas in the 4th Circuit Court,

JAIL from page one pointing out that there was no public support at present for moving ahead with plans for a new facility, but there were many things which needed to be done at the jail. She said that temporary housing for 50 inmates would allow the county to bring back all of the outsourced prisoners while utilizing some of the existing space which would be freed up in the jail for programs designed to help released inmates adjust to life in the community, which could lower recidivism. ‘’We would need additional staff and supervision but need to look at how the county would best be served while we wait for a new facility. The situation is bad and is getting worse,’’ said Shackett. She dusted off a 30-month-old contract proposal from a Georgia firm which builds and installs temporary detention facilities for a 32-unit facility which would cost $1.26 million over three years. The proposed contract called for $315,360 to put the temporary facility in place and for payments of $78,840 over the next 12 quarters. ‘’The numbers are old and outdated.’’ she told commissioners Steven Nedeau and Ed Philpot (Chairman John Thomas is on vacation), who said that they were still interested in the proposal. ‘’Let’s do a current number and get more information and get those to the Jail Planning Committee.’’ said Philpot, who said that he did not see the plan in any way as ‘’a potential permanent solution’’ but that it deserved study and would be discussed at next week’s Jail Planning Committee meeting. He said that it would be particularly important
to work with Department of Corrections Superintendent Daniel Ward to obtain figures which would show the difference in costs between temporary facilities and outsourcing. Nedeau said the plan was ‘’a good suggestion’’ and said that there are many costs associated with outsourcing which aren’t reflected in the arrangement recently reached with Hillsborough County for housing Belknap County prisoners. Philpot said that it would be important to hear from Sheriff Craig Wiggin about additional costs that outsourcing creates for his department, especially transportation and overtime costs. Commissioners also heard more about potential future expenditures at the jail when they reviewed a list of capital improvement projects that they will take up during budget review sessions next week. Largest item of the capital improvements plans proposal is $ 1 million for the heating, ventilation and air condition system at the House of Corrections. Other items listed for consideration in 2014 include $250,000 for renovation of space in the Belknap County Courthouse which would be shared by the Probate Court and the county’s Department of Restorative Justice, $120,000 for replacement of the A/C unit for the administrative offices and Sheriff’s Department, $100,000 for a new county complex surveillance system, $100,000 for reconstruction and repaving of County Drive and $60,000 for replacement of courthouse windows. On tap in 2015 is $580,000 for a new roof for the Belknap County complex.
THREATS from page 2 Police Chief Sam Dotson told the St. Louis PostDispatch he didn’t know if the 31-year-old planned to act on the threats, but he “wasn’t going to take any chances with the safety of the fans and Major
League Baseball.” He’s charged with a misdemeanor offense of making a threat with criminal negligence with regard to the risk of causing evacuation/quarantine/closure of any portion of a building or place of assembly. Court records don’t list an attorney for Metzinger, who could not be reached for comment Wednesday. He was release on bond and is scheduled to return to court in late November.
Health insurance savings key to new state/union deal
CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire’s state workers would share health plan savings with the state under a tentative contract agreement being mailed for a ratification vote perhaps as early as Friday. State workers could get up to $300 in 2014 and again in 2015 for participating in a wellness program, State Employees’ Association President Diana Lacey said Wednesday. She said the payments are incentives to promote good health and share in some of the savings from a healthier workforce. The payments would be in addition to $200 workers have gotten annually if they fill out a health assessment form to use toward copayments. Lacey said workers could combine the two payments to use toward a new $500 deductible for a single employee and $750 for a family next year. The amount for the family rises to $1,000 in 2015. Gov. Maggie Hassan’s office said other, smaller unions that settled contracts earlier will also get the new wellness benefit. Lacey said the SEA hopes to start counting ballots in mid-November and sign a contract before open enrollment begins for the health plan in late November. The union represents 7,800 workers. SEA leaders rejected a tentative agreement with the state in June largely over health care costs, particularly the new deductible. Lacey said negotiations since then resulted in improvements benefiting both sides. She said the wellness incentive program was a key to making sure workers shared in savings from changes to the health plan. The contract calls for any additional savings from the health plan to be rolled over and not used to for spending by state agencies, she said. The contract would give workers their first raise in five years. The original deal called for a 1.5 percent raise in August. In lieu of retroactive pay, workers would get $300 in their Dec. 13 paycheck and the raise would not take effect until after Christmas. Additional 2 ¼ percent increases would take effect in July and in January 2015.

LACONIA — Two Lakes Region poets, Charlotte Cox from Laconia and Barbara Bald from Alton, will offer a contrast in poetic experiences at a special program hosted by the Laconia Public Library on Wednesday, November 13, at 6:30 p.m. Their readings will explore both travel impressions and personal changes through the theme of “Journeys Outward, Journeys Inward.” This event is free and open to the public, and the evening will include some open mike time for the audience. According to the Director of the Library, Randy Brough, “It will be a wonderful opportunity to hear two accomplished poets from this area, and to share your own thoughts with other creative people.” Charlotte Cox will begin the evening with a series of poems arising from her travels in Mexico, New Mexico, and Africa, pursuing how the discovery of such new
places can inspire new emotions and new insights into life. A first-place winner in the Poetry Society of New Hampshire’s 2012 Member Contest, she has had poems published in the 2008 and 2010 Poets’ Guide to New Hampshire; PSNH’s The Poet’s Touchstone; Piscataqua Poems: A Seacoast Anthology; and a forthcoming collection, The Widow’s Handbook. She has also had articles published in Library Journal, Public Libraries, New Hampshire To Do, and Seacoast Living. Barbara Bald will treat listeners to a stirring mix of poems that look deep inside – poems about growing up, growing older, risks, regrets, and second chances – when she reads from her book, DriveThrough Window (Walch Printing, 2012). Her poems have appeared in such anthologies as The Other Side of Sorrow, the 2008 and 2010 Poets’ Guide to New Hampshire, and For Loving Precious Beast, as well as in The Northern New England Review, Avocet, Off the Coast, and PSNH’s Touchstone. Her work has been recognized in both national and local contests including the Rochester Poet Laureate Contest, Lisbon’s Fall Festival of Art Contest, Conway Library’s Annual Contest, Goodwin Library’s Annual Contest, and PSNH’s National and Member Contests. The remainder of the library’s poetry evening will offer open mike time for poets, musicians, and other writers from the audience, along with a chance to meet the presenters and ask questions about the writing process. Director Randy Brough says: “We are happy to support Lakes Region poets, and we encourage you to do the same. Please join us on November 13 for a very special evening.”

LACONIA — Pitman’s Freight Room at 94 New Salem Street in Laconia has recovered from the arson fire and will host a Halloween Party featuring the LA East Blues Band on Thursday, October 31 at 8 p.m. LA East has been one of New Hampshire’s premiere blues bands for several decades.

shopping and discussing our progress so far. If we get enough interest after our third meeting during National Novel Writer’s Month, we will meet monthly after that and have an online presence where we can submit and critique each other’s work. Youth writers age 18 and under, who can sign up for NaNoWriMo’s Young Writers Program at ywp.nanowrimo. org, will also have a chance to work on their first novel at the library.

LACONIA — Bob Montana, creator of “Archie” comics, was much more than a cartoonist, and the author of a new biography of the man focused on those other aspects of his life during a presentation and book-signing at the Belknap Mill on Oct. 23. Carol Lee Anderson’s book, published by the History Press, is entitled The New England Life of Cartoonist Bob Montana and she said she purposely avoided using original cartoons, although his family made some available. Anderson told her audience that she wanted to present the story as a sort of history of the area, pointing out that the comic strip he created and continued drawing until his death in 1975 was filled with references to people and businesses in the Lakes Region, and the clothing reflected the styles of the time. Drawing upon family interviews and private photographs, Anderson presented a portrait of the artist as a man who volunteered his time and talents to many causes, including the saving of the Belknap Mill where her program was taking place. She showed an unfinished cartoon he had created to support the Save the Mill project, initiated when the historic textile mill
was in danger of being demolished to make way for newer buildings. There was no historic preservation agency at the time and Montana was among those at the forefront of the movement to preserve historic landmarks. Anderson credited Montana’s daughter, Lynn, and her siblings with providing access to the materials that showed who Bob Montana really was. Prior to her book, information on Bob Montana was limited to his having been a resident of Haverhill, Mass. Anderson noted that he lived in Haverhill for only three years and, while Archie’s high school experiences were based on his own days as a student in Haverhill, many of the references in the comics were to people and places in the Meredith area, where he lived and raised his family. Bob Montana was active in the community, starting a theatre group and filming a movie there, and he loved to share his talents with children. People in the audience agreed, many of them having met him as children and some had postcards and drawings he had given them. Copies of Anderson’s book are available at the Belknap Mill and from the History Press.

The enthusiastic Laconia Altrusa club members assembled together earlier in October to paint pumpkins purchased at a discounted rate from Appletree Nursery in order to distribute them to the children attending the dinner that evening. The club members also used apples donated by Smith Orchard to make some Altrusa of Laconia picked apples at Smith Orchard, which were donated to make apple crisp for the delicious apple crisp for Hands Across the Table meal as part of the club’s Make A Difference Day project. Pictured are: Tracie that meal’s dessert. Grant, Laura Cameron, Diane Gaynor, Amanda Amidon, Carla Peterson.

This towering figure - jungle doctor, pastor, philosopher, and celebrated musician - was revered by royalty and the famous of his day. Yet the price of his fame was paid for in part by his wife and daughter, left behind in Europe while he pursued his African dream. “Called to Africa” tells his remarkable story through the eyes of his wife, Helene, a nurse who
shared her husband’s dream of carving a hospital out of the rugged African jungle. The movie is filmed on location in Strasbourg, France, where the young Schweitzer gave organ recitals and preached, and in Gabon, West Africa, where the hospital he founded continues to treat people today. A discussion is to follow the film, which will run for approximately 52 minutes. For further information call the library at 286-8288 or visit the church’s web site at uccsanbornton.org

CENTER HARBOR — Bayswater Book Co. will welcome New Hampshire writer and editor, Edie Clark on Friday, November 1 from 10 a.m. to noon as she introduces her newest book, “What There Was Not To Tell.” When asked to describe her newest work, she writes: “This is a book about war, what war does to anyone it touches, how the loss of one man (the man my mother hoped to marry) affected not only my mother, his family, and her own family, but also my sister and myself as we grew up, aware of the loss of Tom but unable to understand it. Based on more than 2,000 letters left to me after my parents died, What There Was Not To Tell tells the specific story of our family’s loss which could be the story of any family who has lost a soldier in war, any war. The book took me 15 years to put together, starting with the massive task of reading through the letters and transcribing them into my computer and ending with an odyssey that took me to Camp Lejeune where my mother trained to be a Marine in
an effort to look for Tom, to San Diego to see where she worked during the war and ultimately to Hawaii in search of Tom’s grave. The journey to find Tom took me many places, physical and emotional and was ultimately redemptive.” Edie Clark has been writing and editing from her home in New Hampshire for the past thirty years. She has written extensively about New England in feature stories for Yankee magazine, where she served as Senior Editor for ten years and then Senior Writer and Fiction Editor for another fourteen years. Her multiple part series on topics such as land development, water pollution, the Christian Science church, the Connecticut River, and the politics of Lyme Disease have gained widespread attention. Her monthly column, Mary’s Farm, is beloved by many. In her hundreds of articles published by Yankee, she has established her reputation as one who writes about ordinary lives changed by one extraordinary act or circumstance.

State doing away with hand-written hunting licenses CONCORD — The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department will be converting to digitallygenerated and printed regular hunting and fishing licenses beginning with the 2014 year. More than half of hunting and fishing licenses sold in N.H. are currently purchased online or at stores that use an automated system. New Hampshire is one of the few remaining states where regular licenses are hand-written. A handful of agents around the state are already using the new point-of-sale (POS) system as part of a pilot project that began in August, and things are going well, according to Fish and Game Licensing Supervisor Sue Perry. When 2014 hunting and fishing licenses become available in mid-December, all Fish and Game license agents will be issuing hunting and fishing licenses via the automated system. Hand-written licenses will no longer be available after the 2013 license year ends. One change under the new system is that, starting with the 2014 licenses, a $2 transaction fee will be charged per license form. This fee will go to the vendor, Sovereign Sportsman Solutions (S3), for the automated system to cover the cost of its operation, just as
online license buyers currently pay a transaction fee. The new automated system offers many benefits: The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department will gain faster access to critical license sales data, which can take months to get under the old system. It will also save on printing and shipping costs, since pre-printed license forms will not be needed. For consumers, the license-buying transaction will be faster and easier. In many cases, their information will already be in the system. Fish and Game license agents will find their administrative reporting is streamlined, because end-of-month reports will be computer-generated, saving them time and effort. They will save time on transactions at the counter, as well, aided by helpful “prompts” to assist them during license sales. “This should be a positive change for everyone, because it will allow Fish and Game to operate more efficiently and effectively, using technology that has been adopted nationwide with positive results,” said Perry.

With World Series on TV, few Laconia residents interested in mayoral debate By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — With Tuesday’s municipal election fast approaching, the two candidates for mayor — Kailief Mitchell and Ed Engler — appeared at Belknap Mill last evening to field prepared questions before a half-dozen people, among them two city councilors, Mitchell’s father and a student too young to vote. It was the third time the pair were together on the same stage, including their appearance on WMUR-TV earlier this month, and their answers to the questions posed by moderator Robert Fisher, a former Democratic candidate for the New Hampshire House of Representatives, took well trodden paths. Engler, the president and editor of The Laconia Daily Sun, said that he decided to run because “it matters very much who is the mayor of Laconia,” explaining that when none of those he expected to run entered the race, “I did.” Mitchell, an academic assistant at the Spaulding Youth Center, viewed his candidacy as “a natural progression,” noting that he
has served as a poll worker in Ward 5 for the past six years. Asked to identify the city’s strongest and weakest qualities, both pointed to its natural surroundings as its most important asset and its aging population as its greatest liability. Mitchell expressed concern that young people were leaving the city and not returning, while Engler stressed the high number of unemployed or underemployed. Referring to this “underclass,” Engler said that addressing the demographic problem held the key to reducing the abuse and trade of drugs. Mitchell said that citizens represented “the first line of defense” and that the citizens police academy, where officers introduce residents to the staples of police work, would prepare them for this role. Mitchell referred to the traffic pattern as “the major obstacle” to the revitalization of downtown. He said that steps must be taken to expand the tax base in order to provide the resources to address the traffic pattern. With respect to downtown Engler said “what we lack now is a specific plan
Nashua mayor says police have used wire taps to investigate her husband
NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — Nashua’s mayor says the police department has been investigating her and her husband, a former bail commissioner, after someone he sued made allegations about him to the police. Police Chief John Seusing declined to comment on whether there’s been an investigation, although a lawyer representing Mayor Donnalee Lozeau’s husband said Wednesday he is reviewing documents and recordings on an investigation into the couple provided by lawyers representing the police. The Telegraph reports Donnalee Lozeau said she learned of the 2009-2010 investigation a day after her February State of the City address. Her husband, David Lozeau, had sued someone who then told police he “was engaged in bidrigging, drug use and misconduct.” She did not provide the name of that person or the details of the lawsuit. The mayor said in a statement Tuesday the investigation, which included 11 attempts to wiretap her husband, was closed without any charges filed, then reopened in February, during tension between her and police over department contracts. “The subsequent attempt by one or more persons in the police department to start a smear campaign based on
an unfounded investigation to achieve political goals is shocking and appalling,” she said in her statement. She added, “Let me say this as clearly as I possibly can: I have not engaged in criminal activity of any kind. The suggestion that I committed any misconduct of any kind is unfounded, unsubstantiated, and untrue.” Seusing denied any link between an investigation and disagreements that he or police unions have had with the mayor. Richard Lehmann, an attorney who represents David Lozeau, said Wednesday he is reviewing documents and recordings from the investigation. He said there’s nothing in the conversations that suggest the Lozeaus were in any way involved in any kind of misconduct. He declined to comment on the lawsuit filed by David Lozeau, only saying it had “nothing to do with his role as bail commissioner.” The Telegraph had requested police records five months ago after David Lozeau resigned as bail commissioner. An attorney hired by the city reviewed the records and agreed to release at least some of them after letting Lehmann review them. Lehmann, who is still reviewing the records, said he can’t answer yet whether he’ll release them publicly.
Ordinance allows residents of tiny N.H. town to set off fireworks if Red Sox win World Series
FREEDOM, N.H. (AP) — Residents in the small town of Freedom, N.H., want the Red Sox to win the World Series, partly to carry out a provision of their 3-year-old fireworks ordinance. The ordinance, enacted in 2010, allows people in Freedom to light off fireworks on holidays like the Fourth of July and and New Year’s Eve.
WMWV-FM reports town moderator Don Johnson proposed — and got approval for — an amendment allowing fireworks to be used within “24 hours following the final out when the Red Sox win the World Series.” Johnson said if the Sox win, he hopes to get back to Freedom from a business trip in time to light off some fireworks.
of what we want our downtown to be.” Once a consensus is reached, he continued, then “we can ask what do we have to do to get there.” He stressed that in weighing the future of downtown the mix of housing must be considered along with the businesses. Mitchell and Engler agreed that the redevelopment of the Allen-Rogers complex represented a significant benefit to the city. Engler took the question as an opportunity to note that the closing of the factory and loss of the jobs was a blow to the city and a reminder that “we’re never going to replace those jobs.” Instead, he emphasized the opportunity to develop the skilled workforce needed by advanced manufacturing firms in the region. Mitchell repeated his opposition to a “Pay-As-You-Throw” trash program while offering qualified support for the mandatory recycling program introduced in July. He said that he would prefer a recycling program that provided tax incentives to residents based on how much they recycled, without explaining how it would operate. Engler said he had no “philosoph-
ical objections” to either program. He expected the mandatory program to meet the target set by the budget and to continue. But he said that it still costs almost $600,000 a year to dispose of trash, adding “in effect we’re burning that money.” Noting that other municipalities recycle a much larger share of their trash, he said there are opportunities for greater savings. The two agreed that the former Laconia State School property represents a potentially valuable asset to the city, which should work with the state towards its redevelopment. Mitchell said the state should offer tax incentives to persuade businesses to locate there while Engler described a corporate office park on the site as “a game changer” that would not only provide employment but also right the demographic balance in the city. In closing, Engler said that the candidates’ positions on particular issues were less important than which of the two “is most capable of being mayor,” to which Mitchell responded “it’s going to be a tough decision.”

Members of the Chorale hail from 9 states originally and live in 10 different towns in the Lakes Region. Five members have Bachelors of Music or Music Education Degrees and two have Masters
of Music Degrees. Ten members play a total of 14 instruments. The singers in this Chorale have performed in 14 different states and in 29 foreign countries.

from preceding page coast near Cherborug, France. The program will take you aboard the two vessels during their dual at Cherbourg. It will give you a sense of what naval warfare was like on the last of the wooden warships. Mike McKinley has much experience as a historical interpretor with the US Park Service and also does personal historical research. The subject of the Kearsarge/Alabama battle was the topic of an All Hands Magazine 1989 article “Duel At Cherbourg” by McKinley when he was a member of the US Navy as a petty officer journalist. The USS Kearsarge was built at Portsmouth NH navy yard in 1861 under the American Civil War emergency shipbuilding program and launched at
Portsmouth January 24, 1862 , Captain Charles Pickering in command. It was a steam powered vessel, as was the CSS Alambama. Subsequent ships in the 20th century were named in honor of the civil war ship. The original Kearsarge was the only American war ship named after Mt Kearsarge in NH. While in later US service protecting waters in the Caribean Sea, the Kearsarge was wrecked February 2, 1894 off Rondacor Cay. The crew made it to shore, but the sip was unsalvageable. Some items from the ship are at the US Navy Museum in Washington DC. All programs of the Sanbornton Historical Society are free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served after the program. Call 286-4526 for further information.

Laconia Harley-Davidson launches cancer-fighting effort Lakes Region Chamber Movember Foundation campaign. seeks nominations Throughout the 30 days of November, men will
MEREDITH — Laconia Harley-Davidson announced a month-long collaborative effort to raise funds and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer research and men’s mental health challenges. Laconia Harley is participating in the Movember Foundation’s month-long mustache-growing campaign and partnering with the New Hampshire Prostate Cancer Coalition (NHPCC) to raise critical funds to support prostate cancer research and education. Prostate Cancer affects one in six men and approximately one man in thirty-six will die of this disease. The campaign will formally begin at a “Shave the Date” event on November 2 from 12-2 p.m. at Laconia Harley-Davidson. Participants will learn about men’s health issues from NHPCC and can make a donation to the organization and receive free shaves so they can start the month with a clean face for the DEBT from page 23 will also focus on financial preparation to achieve specific goals, such as reducing debt, reestablishing credit or preparing to own a home. Participants will learn to eliminate waste, prioritize expenses, understand spending habits, stretch dollars, and get on the path to healthy spending habits. Learn tips and strategies for saving. All class participants are eligible for individual budget/credit counseling. Register today by calling Debra Drake, Homeownership Director of LACLT at 524-0747 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Advance registration is required.
grow their moustaches (no other facial hair) to show their support of men’s health awareness and prompt conversations on these issues wherever they go. Laconia Harley has established a team page at https:// www.movember.com/us/register/?teamid=1050569 where the public can sign up to join the effort and solicit support from family members and friends. Laconia Harley will match funds raised through the Movember effort (up to $2,000) and make a donation to the New Hampshire Prostate Cancer Coalition, a statewide organization that seeks to significantly reduce the number of prostate cancer deaths, improve the quality of life of men living with this disease and to provide Prostate Cancer diagnosis and treatment education. Raising awareness for these men’s health issues is especially important to Laconia Harley owner Anne Deli, who lost her father to prostate cancer over a decade ago. “I watched my father die from complications of prostate cancer because he simply didn’t go to the doctor until it was too late,” said Deli. “It is my goal to encourage men to take control of their health so that we can reduce the preventative deaths from prostate cancer.” Riders and their families can come to the Meredith store for a fresh shave donated by professional barbers from Polished & Proper Barbershop & Shave Parlor in Laconia, a free lunch provided by Hart’s Turkey Farm, live music, and drinks.

Important Things To Look For In A New Mayor
3. Leadership Good leadership can be defined in many ways but we all know it when we see it. Ideally, we want our mayor to bring to office a proven record of accomplishment so that we may have confidence he or she will be able to competently analyze difficult, complicated situations that cannot always be foreseen and lead the way in forging reasonable, responsible solutions. And we want to rest assured he or she will represent us with intelligence and dignity. Ed Engler has been president of The Laconia Daily Sun from day one and dollar one. His record of leading the building of that successful business against long odds speaks for itself. He is just the man to help keep our city moving in a positive direction.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Thursday, Oct. 31, the 304th day of 2013. There are 61 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 31, 1517, Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses on the door of the Wittenberg Palace church, marking the start of the Protestant Reformation in Germany. On this date: In 1795, English poet John Keats was born in London. In 1864, Nevada became the 36th state. In 1887, Nationalist Chinese leader Chiang Kai-shek was born in Zhejiang Province. In 1926, magician Harry Houdini died in Detroit of gangrene and peritonitis resulting from a ruptured appendix. In 1938, the day after his “War of the Worlds” broadcast had panicked radio listeners, Orson Welles expressed “deep regret” but also bewilderment that anyone had thought the simulated Martian invasion was real. In 1941, the Navy destroyer USS Reuben James was torpedoed by a German U-boat off Iceland with the loss of some 100 lives, even though the United States had not yet entered World War II. Work was completed on the Mount Rushmore National Memorial in South Dakota, begun in 1927. In 1959, a former U.S. Marine showed up at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow to declare he was renouncing his American citizenship so he could live in the Soviet Union. His name: Lee Harvey Oswald. In 1961, the body of Josef Stalin was removed from Lenin’s Tomb as part of the Soviet Union’s “de-Stalinization” drive. In 1968, President Lyndon B. Johnson ordered a halt to all U.S. bombing of North Vietnam, saying he hoped for fruitful peace negotiations. In 1984, Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was assassinated by two Sikh (seek) security guards. In 1992, Pope John Paul II formally proclaimed that the Roman Catholic Church had erred in condemning the astronomer Galileo for holding that the Earth was not the center of the universe. In 1994, a Chicago-bound American Eagle ATR-72 crashed in northern Indiana, killing all 68 people aboard. In 1999, EgyptAir Flight 990, bound from New York to Cairo, crashed off the Massachusetts coast, killing all 217 people aboard. In 2001, New York hospital worker Kathy T. Nguyen (nwen) died of inhalation anthrax, the fourth person to perish in a spreading wave of bioterrorism. Ten years ago: A man angry at a lawyer over the handling of his trust fund was captured on videotape shooting and wounding the attorney by crews covering actor Robert Blake’s murder case in Van Nuys, California. One year ago: President Barack Obama joined Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for a tour of damage along the New Jersey coast from Superstorm Sandy; Christie said he “can’t thank the president enough” for his concern and compassion. Wall Street was back in business after a two-day shutdown caused by the storm.

Page 28 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, October 31, 2013
Dear Annie: My fiance is amazing, sensitive and wonderful. The only problem is his sister. When we became engaged, “Jessie” was so jealous, her mother begged us to make her my maid of honor. I did, to keep the peace. I’ve spoken with Jessie a handful of times and don’t particularly like her. She’s 29, gets a monthly allowance from her parents because she lives beyond her means, and threatens to withhold her young son from my fiance and his parents when they won’t give her what she wants. We told Jessie she could help with the wedding plans, but then she had a total meltdown and lashed out at my fiance and his mom. We then informed her that she cannot come to the wedding unless she apologizes. This has resulted in my not being allowed near her son. My future mother-in-law is trying to force us to invite her, saying, “I promise to keep her under control so she won’t wreck the wedding.” The fact that she needs to say that makes me very nervous. My fiance isn’t close to his sister and is tired of her behavior. I don’t want her at my wedding because she’s been so rude to both of us, but I’d accept her if she apologized. Do you think we should hold out and hope? It is our wedding. Can’t we do what we want? -- The Bride Dear Bride: Well, yes and no. Weddings represent the joining of families and, as such, should not become grudge matches. Demanding an apology from Jessie is an exercise in futility. She would rather create ill will than admit wrongdoing, and not being allowed to attend the wedding will fuel her fire for years to come. She could use some professional counseling. Meanwhile, consider the long-term repercussions of excluding her. And if you decide to forgive her, don’t rely on Jessie’s mother to rein her in. Ask a few friends to keep her in check, or hire someone to discreetly escort her out if she creates a scene.
Dear Annie: A number of years ago, I saw an old ad from the 1800s in a book on soap making. The ad said that this particular brand of soap could be used for everything from washing your clothes to cleaning floors and brushing teeth. This apparently was before toothpaste was invented. Is this where the expression “washing your mouth out with soap” came from? -- Grandma Dear Grandma: We doubt it. While some folks may have used soap to brush their teeth, it wasn’t necessary. Toothpaste in one form or another has been around since before the Romans. It was supposed to have a pleasant taste, or at least be tolerable. Soap was never meant to be ingested. Some soaps contain ingredients that are harmful to the mouth, throat or stomach lining. Washing one’s mouth out with soap is a specific punishment, usually in response to using profanity or other inappropriate language. We know parents used to do this, although we don’t recommend it. Thanks for providing an offbeat topic. Dear Annie: I read “Hermitage, Penn’s” diatribe about the elderly white-haired man who rudely butted ahead of her at the grocery store. Maybe he wasn’t feeling well and had to get out of the store quickly. He’s not going to say, “Excuse me, madam, but I am about to have an accident. May I go ahead of you, please?” I found Hermitage’s reaction to be insensitive and downright mean, a common trend in our young people today. -Judy from Omaha Dear Judy: There is no excuse to jump ahead of someone without at least saying, “Excuse me.” That is simple courtesy, regardless of age. Dear Readers: Happy Halloween. Please dress your trickor-treaters in flame-retardant costumes that don’t obstruct walking or vision, and be sure to accompany them.
