Prolific novelist Tom Clancy dies at 66

NEW YORK (AP) — In 1985, a year after the Cold War thriller “The Hunt for Red October” came out, author Tom Clancy was invited to lunch at the Reagan White House, where he was questioned by Navy Secretary John Lehman. Who, the secretary wanted to know, gave Clancy access to all that secret material? Clancy, the best-selling novelist who died Tuesday in Baltimore at 66, insisted then, and after, that his information was strictly unclassified: books, interviews and papers that were easily obtained. Also, two submarine officers reviewed the final manuscript. In an interview with The New York Times in 1987, he explained that unclassified information can lead to insights about state secrets. “One of the reasons we are so successful is that we have a free society with open access to information,” he said. “If you change that, if you try to close off the channels of information, we’ll end up just like the Russians, and their society does not work. The best way to turn America into another Russia is to see CLANCY page 4

White House pow-wow yields no progress on shutdown WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama brought congressional leaders to the White House on Wednesday for the first time since a partial government shutdown began, but there was no sign of progress toward ending an impasse that has idled 800,000 federal workers and curbed services around the country. The standoff continued after a White House summit with chief executives as financial leaders and Wall street urged a resolution before serious damage is done to

the U.S. and world economy. The stock market ended lower as Wall Street CEOs, Europe’s central banker and traders pressed for a solution before serious damage is done to the economy Obama “refuses to negotiate,” House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio., told reporters after private talks that lasted more than an hour. “All we’re asking for here is a discussion and fairness for the American people under Obamacare.” But Senate Majority Leader Harry

Reid of Nevada said moments later, “We’re locked in tight on Obamacare” and neither the president nor Democrats will accept changes in the nation’s 3-year-old health care law as the price for spending legislation needed to end the two-day partial shutdown. With the nation’s ability to borrow money soon to lapse, Republicans and Democrats alike said the shutdown could last for two weeks or more, and soon oblige a divided see SHUTDOWN page 8

Pressure mounts to fix online access to new health insurance exchanges (AP) — The pressure is on for the federal government and states running their own health insurance exchanges to get the systems up and running after overloaded websites and jammed phone lines frustrated consumers for a second day as they tried to sign up for coverage using the new marketplaces. In some ways, the delays that persisted Wednesday were good news for President Barack Obama and supporters of his signature domestic policy achieve-

ment because the holdups showed what appeared to be exceptionally high interest in the overhauled insurance system. But if the glitches aren’t fixed quickly, they could dampen enthusiasm for the law at the same time Republicans are using it as a rallying cry to keep most of the federal government closed. “It was worse today than it was yesterday,” Denise Rathman of Des Moines said after she tried for a second day to log onto the Iowa site.

Rathman has insurance through Dec. 31 but said she is eager to sign up for a policy because of her psoriatic arthritis, which has caused her to be denied insurance in the past. David Berge, a pastor with two young children in Shoreview, Minn., tried unsuccessfully at least 10 times to create an online account on the state-run site MNsure. His high-deductible plan expires at the end of the year. “I’m anxious to see what the insurance see OBAMACARE page 10

Property tax bills will be late this year because new law creating logjam in Concord By Michael Kitch CONCORD — Towns and cities may find themselves facing cash flow crunches before the end of the year because of a change in the state funding of public schools. Yesterday the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration (DRA) announced that it would not begin setting municipal tax rates before November 7. Typically DRA begins setting tax rates in the middle of October. The agency explained that the delay is the result of legislation enacted in 2012 that requires the New Hampshire Department of Education (DOE) to calculate the amount of state aid distributed to school districts on the basis of their enrollment in the immediately prior school year, not the enrollment of two years prior. In other words, the state aid distributed in the 2013-2014 school year will be calculated from the enrollment in 2012-2013 school year, not the 2011-2012 school year. . The DOE has informed the DRA that it will not complete the calculations to measure school enroll-

ment and apportion state aid until November 7, almost three months later than in the past. Since the law assures school districts that state aid will not be less than 95 percent of their allocation in the prior year, the DRA considered using that figure to begin setting municipal tax rates at the usual time. The agency rejected this alternative, concluding that it would lead to unnecessary increases to local tax rates. But, the delay in setting tax rates poses challenges. “The real pinch is on cities and towns,” said Geoff Ruggles, finance director in Gilford. He explained that normally in October town officials begin meeting with DRA staff in the first half of October, when an “unofficial” tax rate is set. He estimated DRA dealt with between 20 and 30 municipalities a day. DRA confirmed the rate within two or three days. Then the warrant is prepared and signed by the selectmen, after which it is reviewed by the tax collector, who manages the printing and mailing of the tax bills. Ruggles said that the process generally takes about two weeks.

Ruggles said that if the process begins in October, there is sufficient time for cities and towns to parade to DRA set their rates, mail their bills and collect the taxes required to replenish their diminished coffers and fund operations for the coming six months. But, with the delay he feared that there will be a queue of municipalities at the door of DRA on November 7, causing one bottleneck, which could be followed by another at the mail houses as cities and towns scramble to begin the collection process as their cash flow shrinks. Meanwhile, municipalities must pay their county apportionment, which in Belknap County is as little as $405,419 in New Hampton and as much as $2,655,238 in Laconia, no later than by December 17. Ruggles said that if the process is slowed significantly some towns could be faced with having to borrow to make the payment and fund other obligations. Although Ruggles sadi he could not recall a municipality defaulting on its payment to the county, Glen Waring, the finance director of Belknap County, said, “I’m concerned.”

CLANCY from page 2 emulate their methods of handling information.” Government officials may have worried how Clancy knew that a Russian submarine spent only about 15 percent of its time at sea or how many SS-N-20 Seahawk missiles it carried. But his extreme attention to technical detail and accuracy earned him respect inside the intelligence community and beyond and helped make Clancy the most

widely read and influential military novelist of his time, one who seemed to capture a shift in the country’s mood away from the CIA misdeeds that were exposed in the 1970s to the heroic feats of Clancy’s most famous creation, CIA analyst Jack Ryan. “Thrillers, like all art, are always a reflection of the culture,” said fellow author Brad Meltzer. “No one captured that Cold War fear — and that uniquely American perspective— like Clancy. Jack

Ryan wasn’t just a character. He was us. He was every American in those days when we were a pushof-the-button away from nuclear war.” Fans couldn’t turn the pages fast enough and a number of his high-tech, geopolitical thrillers, including “The Hunt for Red October,” ‘’Patriot Games” and “Clear and Present Danger,” were made into blockbuster movies, with another, “Jack Ryan,” set for release on Christmas.

Belknap Commission briefed on changes that need to be made at jail to conform to federal Rape Elimination Act By RogeR Amsden

of the total federal funds available to the county from all federal sources for every year it is not in compliance with the standards. He said that the county could request an audit of its facility in order to better understand what needs to be done and establish a plan, which would need to be implemented within 180 days, to make recommended changes. The US Department of Justice is in charge of administering the requirements of the 2003 law. County Commissioner Ed Philpot said that he was hesitant to have the facility audited, pointing out that one of the major concerns of the commission in recent years, which motivated it to establish a committee to develop plans for a new correctional facility, is that there are other problems with the jail could produce a lawsuit which would require major and costly changes. But an audit will be coming sooner or later anyway. All confinement facilities covered under the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) standards must be audited at least every three years to be considered compliant with the PREA standards, with one third of each facility type operated by an agency, or private organization on behalf of an agency, audited each year. These include adult prisons and jails, juvenile facilities, lockups (housing detainees overnight), and community confinement facilities, whether operated by the Department of Justice or unit of a state, local, corporate, or nonprofit authority. The laws says that each agency seeking PREA compliance will be responsible for contracting with or otherwise securing the services of one or more DOJ-certified auditors to schedule audits for each of its facilities during the three-year audit cycle. Commission Chairman John Thomas said he had requested that Ward make a presentation so that the county could be aware of the impact of the law and the implications it had for the county facility. ‘’We’re looking at major operational costs for staffing, new equipment and a camera system,’’ said Thomas. Ward said that he would be bringing together a plan for compliance which he will present to commissioners by November 1.

LACONIA — Belknap County Commissioners were told Wednesday that the county House of Correction will need to make major changes in the way it handles its inmate population in order to comply with new federal standards which will take effect at the start of 2014. BCHOC Superintendent Daniel Ward said that those standards, developed as a result of the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA), which was passed in 2003 with unanimous support from both parties in Congress, cover all prisons, as well as local jails, police lockup and juvenile facilities.

As a Democrat, I should be pleased Here’s a big news alert: House Republicans oppose Obamacare. That’s why they’ve shut the government down. No, doing so won’t actually stop Obamacare. To a great extent, the program is on autopilot. The Republicans shut down the government, but the exchanges are open for business. The last time the Republicans shut down the government, they at least had the fig leaf that they were doing so to protest the size of government. Not this time. This time, it’s not about the size of government. It’s not about the deficit. The Senate already has gone along with the House’s insistence that agencies cut their spending in the coming weeks. This is pure symbolism — on the Republican side — at the expense of people who depend on the government and work for the government. Maybe you or a loved one is trying to sign up for a potentially lifesaving clinical trial. Sorry. You can’t. Maybe you work as an air traffic controller or a prison guard. The “good news” is you’re still working. The “bad news” is you don’t get paid. It’s not right. Make no mistake. This is not going to help Republicans in the long run. Playing games with people’s lives is not smart politics. The fact that many well-known Republican senators have made clear that this is not an appropriate way to protest Obamacare underscores the ideological extremism that holds sway in the House. Just the other day, a lifelong Republican sought me out to express his immense frustration. Why are they doing this, he kept asking me. Don’t they understand that however unpopular Obamacare is, closing down the government as a symbolic protest is going to be seen as irresponsible? It’s even more unpopular than Obamacare. I have no answer. Or rather, I have no answer other than the obvious one: that the House is under the control of extremists who are throwing a political temper tantrum, and responsibility be damned.

As a Democrat, I should be pleased. As an American, I am deeply troubled. We’re used to having extremists hold sway on cable television. But that’s entertainment. You can vote with your clicker. You don’t have to watch. At the end of the day, no one gets hurt. Congress should be different. It’s not a TV show. It’s not a tryout for the next round of “Crossfire,” or at least it shouldn’t be. This is real life. This is about parents not getting paid, people who need loans for their businesses not getting help, people who are sick having to wait for the ideologues to stop playing games. “I’m always willing to work with anyone of either party to make sure the Affordable Care Act works better,” the president said. “But one faction of one party in one house of Congress in one branch of government doesn’t get to shut down the entire government just to re-fight the results of an election.” Except that they did. Obamacare was a central issue in the last election. By the time he won his party’s nomination, Mitt Romney had effectively turned his back on his own (similar) program in Massachusetts and was urging voters who opposed Obamacare to vote for him. If you wanted to get rid of Obamacare, the way to do it was to elect Romney and give Republicans a majority in the Senate. It didn’t happen. Romney lost. The Senate remains in Democratic hands. That’s how it works in a democracy. You win some, and you lose some. The tea party lost. Better luck next time. Or not. There may be some new contestants for Newt Gingrich’s slot on “Crossfire.” Better there than in Congress.

Nixon also thought he was above the laws passed by Congress To The Daily Sun, Obamacare is The Law Of The Land. I’m confused. I thought when a law is passed it applies to all. According to Obama, it’s here to stay. The people and the courts have spoken. Though I don’t agree, it’s the way we do things in this country. That’s why we vote. Health care for all, paid for fairly by all. We are now learning that’s not the

case. Obama took it upon himself to change the law, after the fact. Since when does a president have the right to change the law of the land? Nixon thought he was above the law. History has a strange way of repeating itself. Tom Sellew Lochmere (Tilton)

LETTERS We don’t want to help people without insurance because of race To The Daily Sun, Well the Government has shut down, so please thank the GOP House, especially the self-centered Tea Party. They had their chance to vote for a clean bill but they had to add something about the ACA while knowing it would never pass the Senate. The finger pointing has started but the GOP still has the ball, we can even see it, while they try to hide it. The Dems point at the GOP and the GOP point at the Dems and Obama. It was interesting hearing Cruz play the blame game as he twisted and turned words around to suit his point. Almost sounded believable if one didn’t know the truth. It was never about deficits or budgets. The GOP even had to change the reason for the shutdown before each vote. It was to expensive, it didn’t work (hadn’t even started yet), to confusing, was unfair and discriminated against government workers. Was never a shortage of reasons against it even though they did like certain parts of it. They have always been saying about the ACA — repeal and replace — but they have NEVER said what they would replace the ACA with or how they would fix it. The answer to this is they will replace the ACA with nothing or no health care at all. So if you get sick you will go broke and end up on Medicare or Medicaid so the taxpayers pay for your care. This

seems acceptable to the fiscally-responsible, job-creating GOP. But we have a law called the Affordable Care Act that is suppose to save money and create jobs which they are trying to block. You will be able to afford it with all the incentives and credits which should reduce the burden on the taxpayers. Why don’t they want to help the citizens of our country is beyond me. One reason, I believe is, is that most of the people covered will be low income and people of color and we know from the treatment of our president the last four years how much they like people of color. They also mention numerous complaints, lost jobs, high premiums, confusion etc. Amazing this has only happened in their districts. I also hear the complaint about socialized medicine — horrors! Would that be like the other socialized programs we have, like Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, child labor laws, women voting, 8-hour work day, unions, other womens’ rights, etc.? People tried blocking these back then and I would think some would still like these laws to go away now. Doubt that will happen soon. So, again, as the Gov of Kentucky said “get over it and move on” The scarey part is we still have the debt ceiling to go through. Jon Hoyt Plymouth

Insurance is not a right; most of America doesn’t want handout To The Daily Sun, “...Once the president signs something into law, it is supposed to apply to everyone. Obama has granted waivers, exemptions, delays to his cronies and allies. House Republicans asked if delays, waivers, and exemptions were good for some, they should be good for all Americans. But Obama, Reid, and Pelosi said no. House Republicans asked that a specific 2.3 percent medical device tax, which is causing jobs to ship overseas, be repealed. Again, Obama, Reid, and Pelosi said no. Obama and liberal media are lying to you America. Obamacare is not a law, according to our Constitutional Republic, because laws apply to everyone....” — Allen West “Elected leaders should not be treated better than the American

For those who only watch mainstream media, you are being mislead. This health care law was passed with not one Republican vote. Our president will negotiate with Iran and terrorists but not with the Republicans. Insurance is not a right. Welfare, Medicaid/Medicare should be reserved for elderly, kids, people with major illnesses, pregnant moms. The rest of America that still maintains its sanity and dignity and does not want hand outs and we don’t want to pay for yours. Time to be weaned off the government tit people, and be productive members of society. I’m sick to death of socialist hacks trying to tell us what we have to do and not do. It’s beyond time to rise up and tell them we aren’t taking this crap anymore. Kim Lakin

LETTERS So many to thank for another great Laconia High Alumni Reunion To The Daily Sun, The Committee for the Laconia High School Alumni Reunion would like to express its gratitude to Laconia School Department administration, staff and, most importantly, the alumni who gave so wholeheartedly to insure that the 3rd Annual Alumni Reunion was a success. Specifically, we thank the Laconia School Board whose endorsement was so important, LHS Facilities Manager Steve Dalzell, Jack Aldrich and his students of the Meredith Village Savings Bank Culinary Arts Center, Lakes Region Floral Studio, Jennifer Mitchell and Jeff Twombly – IT Department, Laconia High School Kitchen staff, current LHS students who all allowed us to share their homecoming events, and the LHS janitorial staff for their support during the day and night of the event. We would also like to especially thank Krista Marrs from The Citizen, who was the driving force in making our second alumni publication a reality. We hope to build on this in the years to come to make it a wonderful keepsake of the event. We thank the generations of alumni who came to Laconia High School to renew friendships, to exchange memories, and to show that we still remain Sachems in the most respected sense of unity for the blessings of our public education. Special thanks to Warren Mitchell, who organized the amazing parade of classic cars for our alumni to ride in. Gert Gilman, Class of 1933, was our senior alumni and we were thrilled to have her join us again this

year in the celebration. We think that alumni who attended had a great time reconnecting. We were also thrilled to have Laconia High School students take alumni on tours of the new Huot Technical Center and the new science center at Laconia High School. Alumni were so impressed with all the work that has been done to benefit our students and support them in ensuring their potential for success with every student, every day, in every way. On behalf of the alumni, we thank our parents for their insight in supporting us when in school, thank our teachers who challenged us, taught us, and set out dreams and goals to be sought. We know full well that those buildings at 345 Union Avenue have long brought forth a group of citizens who, for some, gave the ultimate commitment so that public education would be available for generations to come, brought forth citizens who made a difference in their nation, their states, their communities, and in the neighbors, in their families, and, yes, in their school systems. As an alumni committee, grateful and committed to public education, we thank you and hope that next year we can meet again.

Take info coming from obviously biased sources for what it is To The Daily Sun, I am a firm believer in freedom of choice and thought. I know that thoughtful individuals come to different conclusions on issues of the day, and I respect the value of individuals’ opinions. But I feel strongly that conclusions should be drawn from unbiased, factbased sources. In his recent letter, Mr. Ewing based his conclusions on a very biased source: The Free Beacon is the online publication of the Center for American Freedom. The Center for American Freedom, a non-profit group, states its mission is to “to transform conservative ideas into policy.” Their “reporting” cannot be treated as fact, but rather as conservative-based opinion. Non-political, unbiased think tanks abound in our country, giving us all plenty of information on which to base our opinions. Among them is the Kaiser Family Foundation that recently found that 51 percent of the public and 67 per-

cent of the uninsured population want more factual information on Obamacare instead of political posturing. Kaiser also found, regardless of the person’s position on Obamacare, 56 percent of the public disapprove of cutting funding for the program. To address just one of Mr. Ewing’s contentions on the effect of Obamacare on the economy, I defer to two economists: Karen Davis of the Commonwealth Fund and David Cutter of Harvard. They anticipate that Obamacare will create an estimated onehalf trillion dollar cut in health care spending, in part by employers, over the next 10 years. That sounds, to me, like an economic boost. Mr. Ewing and I can agree, I hope, to disagree. But I urge him to find more even-handed sources upon which to base his views. Kate Miller Meredith

Obamacare largest case of fraud ever dumped on United States To The Daily Sun, Obama accuses ALL others in government of being unwilling to compromise, then absolutely refuses to compromise when it is clear he is completely wrong! I would call that stubborn, pigheaded stupidity, which pretty well describes him on everything! Let’s start at beginning: Obama was clearly born in Kenya, and was never an American citizen. Clearly he has lied about all of his earlier life and education, which, by the passports

he used, he proved he was never an American. Most of his early education was in Indonesia as a Muslim, which finally he now admits. He claims to be brilliant, yet, when he finally produced a “birth certificate”, it was so clearly a fake as it showed he was born in a non existing hospital, and his numerical sequence was impossible. He was so terribly stupid he couldn’t even do a fair fake! Maybe his best claim to fame is with his Acorn see next page

Man involved in NYC incident with large pack of bikers charged with reckless driving NEW YORK (AP) — A motorcyclist accused of touching off what evolved into a bloody confrontation between an SUV driver and a throng of bikers was charged Wednesday with reckless driving while investigators searched for key players in the driver’s beating. Investigators and prosecutors, who held off charging another person, faced the task of trying to track down and talk to dozens of helmet-clad motorcyclists seen in an online video of the encounter. The confrontation spiraled from a minor collision between a motorbike and the SUV into the car plowing over a biker and fellow riders surrounding, chasing and attacking the driver, authorities said. The only person criminally charged in Sunday’s encounter is Christopher Cruz, who was arraigned on misdemeanor charges of reckless driving and unlawful imprisonment. Police and prosecutors said Cruz, of Passaic, N.J., was the biker who initially cut off the SUV, which then bumped his motorcycle’s back tire. Defense lawyer H. Benjamin Perez said Cruz didn’t try to trap or assault the driver and denied all the allegations. “He’s going to fight the case, and I’m sure he will be successful,” Perez said. Meanwhile, the Manhattan district attorney’s office decided to not immediately prosecute a second arrested person, Allen Edwards, who surrendered on Tuesday. Prosecutors said they were continuing to look into the entire incident, and

they told a judge they intend to take the case against Cruz to a grand jury, signaling that more charges are likely. “Prematurely charging individuals with low-level crimes does not further the goals of the investigation and could weaken the cases we expect to bring against the perpetrators of serious crimes,” prosecutor Karen Friedman-Agnifilo said, adding there was “still a tremendous amount of investigation to be done.” Investigators have questioned the SUV driver and are looking to speak to as many of the bikers as they can, including the one whose helmetmounted camera recorded the events. Prosecutors and police said Cruz was participating in a motorcycle rally speeding along Manhattan’s West Side Highway. They said Cruz cut in front of a black Range Rover and, staring at its driver, slowed down so much that the rear tire of his motorcycle bumped the front of the SUV. Prosecutors said he got off and approached the SUV. Video captured the moment as about two dozen riders slowed down, swarming the SUV and blocking its path. Some dismounted and approached the vehicle, and police said some bikers began damaging the Range Rover. The driver, who police say was frightened for his wife and 2-year-old child in the SUV, suddenly lurched forward, plowing over another rider before heading north. The cyclists pursued the driver for about 2.5 miles, until the SUV got off the highway and got stuck in street traffic.

SHUTDOWN from page 2 government to grapple with both economy-threatening issues at the same time. The White House said in a statement after the meeting that Obama had made it clear “he is not going to negotiate over the need for Congress to act to reopen the government or to raise the debt limit to pay the bills Congress has already incurred.” It added, “The president remains hopeWARD 5 from page one

ful that common sense will prevail.” The high-level bickering at microphones set up outside the White House reflected the day’s proceedings in the Capitol. The Republican-controlled House approved legislation to reopen the nation’s parks and the National Institutes of Health, even though many Democrats criticized them as part of a piecemeal approach that fell far short of what was needed. The bills face

Gammon and Spector-Morgan to draft an agreement to hold a recount then forward it to the Merrimack County Superior Court, which would order Reynolds to conduct it. O’Neill said that a hearing on Gammon’s request that the city reimburse him for his $278 in court costs would be scheduled in either Merrimack County Superior Court or Carroll County Superior Court at a later date. Outside the courtroom, SpectorMorgan and Gammon reached an agreement, written in longhand, to recount the votes for councilor and ward clerk in Ward 5. When SpectorMorgan asked Tardif if he would make his decision once the recount was over he initially suggested he might defer his decision pending the outcome of the hearing on court costs. He said that Gammon should not have to incur expenses for protecting the integrity of a municipal election. Later Tardif said that he would not tie his decision to the question of court costs. However, when he and Gammon suggested that since Gammon paid to correct an error by election officials, the city should bear the cost, SpectorMorgan agreed to approach City Manager Scott Myers about picking up the tab. She noted that if the city simply paid his costs it would spare itself the costs arising from another court. Reynolds said that she has drafted a letter to Tardif in anticipation that the recount will confirm he is entitled to a place on the general election ballot. She said that she will hand deliver the letter once the ballots are counted. Reynolds said that the dispute has already delayed her preparations for the general election on November 5 by more than week. She said that if Tardif has not notified her of his decision by the end of this week, she will order the ballots to be printed and the machines programmed for Wards 1, 2, 3 ,4 and 6 on Monday. “I was trained to avoid paying the set-up fee twice,” she said, explaining that to print and program for Ward 5 separately could add $500 or more to the cost of preparing election materials. Reynolds said that she aims to print the general election ballots and distribute absentee ballots at least 30 calendar days before the general election. — Michael Kitch

from preceding page massive misinformation, which he used for overwhelming vote stacking, as way to “win” presidency twice. Dishonesty is his fundamental method. His ridiculous Obamacare is the most massive case of fraud ever dumped on the USA; it seems that so far only one person has claimed to have read it all. (NONE of the Democrats who dumped it on us ever claimed to have read it or understand it, with their statement “we have to pass it before

we can find out what it is!) That seems to be the standard way of Democrats — the know-nothing party! Now he claims that it is better to shut down the government (and blame Republicans for his dishonesty) than even delay his massive fraud of “Obamacare”, which is NOT care at all! Our best solution is to Impeach him (if that is possible for a non-citizen) and then deport him back to Kenya. Jack Stephenson Gilford

Tom Tardif received enough enough write-in votes to earn a spot on the general election ballot, asked the court to order the recount. Tardif has yet to indicate whether he will be a candidate, saying that he would await formal notification from City Clerk Mary Reynolds. “It’s a family decision,” he remarked. The City Charter stipulates that the two candidates receiving the most votes for each office in the primary election shall advance to the general election in November. In Ward 5, incumbent City Councilor Bob Hamel, who ran unopposed in the primary, was declared the winner with 39 of 47 ballots cast. Although election officials reported no write-in votes for city councilor, a computer print-out indicates that three write-in ballots were cast in the race. Gammon claimed that he, his wife and another woman cast write-in ballots for Tardif. Election officials reported that Tardif received three of four write-in votes cast for ward clerk, but none for city councilor. If Tardif received a majority of the write-in votes, he would be entitled to a place on the general election ballot, which he has ten days to either accept or decline. After the deadline for requesting a recount passed, Gammon petitioned the court to order City Clerk Mary Reynolds, who otherwise has no authority to unseal and open the ballots, to conduct a recount. Attorney Laura SpectorMorgan, representing the City Clerk, endorsed the call for a recount, but also asked the court to require Tardif to decide whether or not to become a candidate “immediately upon completion of the recount.” When the parties appeared in court, O’Neill asked Gammon and SpectorMorgan to approach the bench, where he explained that, as in past matters to which Tardif was a party, he would recuse himself from the case. He asked UNH from page 2

dim prospects in the Senate, and the White House threatened to veto both in the unlikely event they make it to Obama’s desk. “What we’re trying to do is to get the government open as quickly as possible,” said the House majority leader, Rep. Eric Cantor of Virginia. “And all that it would take is us realizing we have a lot in agreement.” Earlier, an attempt by Democrats to force shutdown-ending legislation to the House floor failed on a 227-197 vote, with all Republicans in opposition. That left intact the tea partydriven strategy of demanding changes to the nation’s health care overhaul as the price for essential federal financing, despite grumbling from Republican moderates. The stock market ended lower as Wall Street CEOs, Europe’s central banker and traders pressed for a solution. Chief executives from the nation’s biggest financial firms met Obama for more than an hour Wednesday, some of them plainly frustrated with the tactics at play in Congress and with the potential showdown coming over the debt limit. “You can re-litigate these policy issues in a political forum, but we shouldn’t use threats of causing the U.S. to fail on its obligations to repay its debt as a

cudgel,” Lloyd Blankfein, CEO of Goldman Sachs, said after the meeting. Democrats were scathing in their criticism. “The American people would get better government out of Monkey Island at the local zoo than we’re giving them today,” said Rep. John Dingell of Michigan. The Republican National Committee announced it would pay for personnel needed to reopen the World War II Memorial, a draw for aging veterans from around the country that is among the sites shuttered. In a statement, party chairman Reince Priebus challenged Democrats “to join with us in keeping this memorial open.” Democrats labeled that a stunt. “We’ve already been working on a plan to open the Memorial — and the entire government — after the GOP caused them to close,” said party spokesman Mo Elleithee. “It’s called a clean” spending bill. As it turned out, more than 125 World War II veterans from Mississippi and Iowa who were initially kept out of the memorial Tuesday were escorted to the site with the help of members of Congress. Officials made further arrangements to allow veterans groups into the memorial during the shutdown.

LOAN from page one most in need of renovations. Facilities member Mike Persson explained that all of the other school buildings in the city have had significant upgrades in recent years, with the exception of the high school. The Tier 1 priority, said Persson and Murray, are health and safety issues and installing a sprinkler system and air handlers in the high school are at the top of the list. Other health and safety concerns include removing the asbestos from disturbed areas in the former science area on the upper floor and installing a radon removal system on the ground floor. Tier 2 priorities were identified teaching and learning spaces. The Facilities Committee said upgrading the suspended ceilings in most of the class rooms and repairing the aluminum panels on the exterior windows were the top priorities in this category. Tier 3 priorities were overall facilities improvements and the restoration of the concrete pillars on the front of the high school, suspended ceilings in the corridors, and removing the carpeting from the hallways and installing hard flooring. Yesterday, Business Administrator Ed Emond said if the district were to borrow the QZAB money, some of the projects from each category would likely mesh together. As an example he said adding sprinklers to the school would disrupt the ceiling tiles so it would make sense to do both as part of the same project. In order to qualify for a QZAB interest-free loan, school districts have to meet three criteria: a 10 percent match of local funds, a so-called “Zone Academy” must be created, and a working collaborative with community partners must be established. The district must also have more than 35-percent of the students qualify for free or reduced-price lunches and Laconia easily exceeds that threshold. Under a 1997 federal law, a Zone Academy must create programs to

enhance the curriculum, increase graduation rates, improve employment opportunities and better prepare students for the workplace or higher education. Laconia started a Wellness Academy to qualify for the Huot Center-related loan so that obstacle has already been cleared. Emond said the Laconia raised $1.050 million in cash and in-kind donations from the community for the Huot Center project, $180,000 of which can be used as a 10 percent match to attract the new funds. The next step is to bring the loan proposal to the City Council for approval. The council will have to approve the additional interest payments of $78,260 per year for the next 23 years beginning in 2015 — a payment that may or may not fit into the self-imposed loan service cap — $3.2 million per year — set by the city, which may have other priorities for bond and interest payments in the future. Of the $3.6 million dollars set aside for principal and interest payments in the 2013-2014 budget, the School District is responsible for $2.480 million. The 2013-2014 payment on the Laconia Middle School is $1.488-million and the payment of the two portions of the QZAB loans for the Huot Center project total $240,000. The interest on a Huot Technical Center supplement is an additional $17,500. Should the City Council choose not to allow the School District to add $78,240 to the principal and interest line, the School District could examine its internal budget and look for savings from its operating budget. Superintendent Terri Forsten said representatives from the School District are scheduled to meet with the Finance Committee of the City Council at 6:30 p.m. on October 15. Should the City Council approve the additional loan payments, Emond said there would be a least two public hearings. If approved, he said the projects would go to an engineering company, out to bid, and likely take place next summer.

Rash of burglaries in Belmont this month

BELMONT — Police are reporting an increase in the number of burglaries reported in town, confirming they are investigating six of them since September 13 and eight since September 1. Logs show that with two exceptions, all of the break-ins have been in the Union Road/Laconia Road (Rte. 3) area of town. The two exceptions involved copper thefts from an abandoned house on Concord Street and from a bath-beach house near one of the seasonal parks. Lt. Richard Mann said at least two of burglaries, one reported on September 26 and one reported on September 27 but that likely occurred the day before, involved homes where the residents had been gone for the day. Mann said a in a burglary on Union Road reported September 26, the house appeared to be ransacked and a jar of change, among other things, was taken. He said a home owner on Dutile Road returned home the night of September 26 and thought there was a drawer that was left open. He said the homeowner went to sleep but when he couldn’t find his laptop the next morning, he called police. He said police have no reason to think the two are related but said they are increasing patrols in the area. Other burglaries reported include two on Laconia Road, one of Scenic Drive and one on Lakewood Drive. Mann said anyone who sees any suspicious activity should report it to the police. He also said that if anyone has any information about any of the above burglaries they should call 267-8351. He said callers may remain anonymous. He also said people should lock their doors when they are not home and make sure their cars are locked when not in use. — Gail Ober OBAMACARE from page 2 is going to look like for my family at the beginning of the year,” Berge said. “That’s a big unknown right now. I want to figure that out as soon as possible so we can begin planning.” In California, home to 15 percent of the nation’s uninsured, officials pulled the enrollment portion of the Covered California site down overnight for emergency upgrades. It was restored midmorning Wednesday, and 7,770 people had started applications by then, spokesman Roy Kennedy said. California is one of a handful of mostly Democratic states that opted to set up their own exchanges rather than let the federal government do it for them. In the 36 states being operated by the federal Department of Health and Human Services, consumer patience was still being tested. Agency spokeswoman Joanne Peters said many Americans successfully enrolled on the first day, but she declined to put a number on it. She said the delays were due to “overwhelming interest” and high volume. It’s not as if nobody warned them. Just three months ago, the congressional Government Accountability Office said a smooth and timely rollout could not be guaranteed because the online system was still getting finishing touches and had not been fully tested. The Obama administration shrugged off the evaluation. The bumpy debut has the hallmarks of a technology project that may have rushed to meet the Oct. 1 deadline, said Bill Curtis, chief scientist at CAST, a software quality analysis firm, and director of the Consortium for IT Software Quality, which develops standards. “When you are in a rush, you typically make a lot of mistakes and you don’t have time to test them all out,” he said. High volume can also expose software flaws that were not detected in testing, Curtis said, like the recurring problem consumers encountered trying to set up accounts on the federal site. Drop-down menus that were supposed to provide security questions did not work.

Mutual Fire Aid formally asks to be dropped from 2014 county budget By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — The Lakes Region Mutual Fire Aid Association (LRMFAA) has notified the Belknap County Commission that it will no longer seek funding through Belknap County for the 11 communities in the county which are members of the association. The letter, signed by LRMFAA Chief Jim Hayes and Deputy Chief John Beland, asked commissioners to remove the mutual fire aid appropriation line from the 2014 county budget and thanked the county for the cooperation over the nearly 40 years that the county has carried a portion of the mutual aid bill in its operating budget. The letter said that mutual aid will now bill the 10 towns and the city of Laconia directly for their annual assessments, which will now change due to a difference in the formula used by the mutual aid for its 26 other member towns and that used by the county. The county assessments were based 100 percent on property values, whereas the Mutual Aid formula also takes population into account.

Based on this year’s bill of $554,037 which was billed through the county tax, Alton paid $81,048, Barnstead $27,350, Belmont $34,381, Center Harbor $22,457, Gilford $88,631, Gilmanton $25,680, Laconia $106,731, Meredith $100,545, New Hampton $17,528, Sanbornton $22,072 and Tilton $27,614. Billed directly, according to the formula applied by the LRMFAA, four towns would have paid less; Alton would have saved $18,922, Center Harbor $4,721, Gilford $14,326 and Meredith $25,445. The other seven which would have paid more were: Barnstead $9,206, Belmont $18,290, Gilmanton $6,237, Laconia $17,606, New Hampton $3,372, Sanbornton $4,527 and Tilton $4,176. Earlier this year commissioners were notified by Meredith and Center Harbor that they would pay their mutual aid assessments directly, effectively ending the current system because there was no way the county could separate out the mutual aid funds from the rest of the money the towns pay as part of their assessed share of the county budget.

Woman fleeing traffic stop in Manchester was shot 4 times MANCHESTER (AP) — A state trooper shot a woman four times after she fled a traffic stop, killing her with one shot to the chest, authorities said Wednesday. In a statement, Attorney General Joseph Foster said Wendy Lawrence, 45, of Canterbury was stopped at 6:30 p.m. Monday on I-89 in Bow when a trooper saw her driving erratically. She handed the officer a non-driver’s license identification and told him she had a valid license. The trooper returned to his cruiser to verify the information and discovered that Lawrence had a suspended license. While

he was in the car, Lawrence drove off. The trooper chased her briefly then stopped the pursuit. The trooper spotted her car again at the end of I-89 where she almost hit a person who was on the highway then took off down I-93, Foster said in the statement. Several troopers joined in and tried to stop Lawrence at an intersection in Manchester. That’s when a trooper opened fire, hitting her four times. News photos show several holes in the windshield of the Monte Carlo. Lawrence was taken to Elliot Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Plymouth Rotary honors Scott King by naming him a Paul Harris Fellow

DAY OF PLAY at Saturday, October 5, 2013 ◆ 10:00am to Noon EPTAM Plastics 2 Riverside Business Park in Northfield, NH Kids ages 4+ welcome! Join EPTAM Plastics & Belknap EDC for this FREE family-friendly event!

TAKE THE CARDBOARD CHALLENGE Go to www.cardboardchallenge.com for inspiration. ONLY 40 SPOTS AVAILABLE AND REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. To register, e-mail carmen@belknapedc.org, or call 524-3057. Everyone MUST wear close-toed shoes to enter EPTAM Plastics.

PLYMOUTH — Scott King, a longtime Plymouth Rotarian from Holderness, was recently honored by Meredith Rotarian Bonnie Hunt when she named Scott a Paul Harris Fellow, one the highest honors that Rotary International offers its members. Paul Harris founded Rotary in 1905, and Harris spent much of his life trying to discover what makes people “do good” for others. Harris’s philosophy was that every worthy action and good deed must pass Rotary’s FourWay Test by asking; 1. Is it the truth? 2. Is it fair to all concerned? 3. Will it build good will and better friendships? 4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned? Bonnie Hunt and her fellow Rotarian’s from Meredith joined the Plymouth Club for breakfast at the Common Man with the idea of surprising Scott King with the Paul Harris Award since King’s life and actions have demonstrated the very best of Paul Harris’ dedication to “doing good.” Hunt said, “I want to give a special shout-out to someone who is always there with a smile and a big hug for me, and for his ‘we-can-get-it done attitude’ that gets whatever ‘it’ is done.” Hunt went on to describe King’s long

list of accomplishments, all of which meet and exceed the Four-Way Test, such as his work on the Rotary Riverfront Amphitheater, his extensive service and assistance to veterans, and special projects he has spearheaded such as the Wounded Warriors Program on Little Squam, the Holderness War Memorial, and the Holderness Historical Society Building. King has also decorated many funeral homes to honor veterans who served in the Tenth Mountain Division, so that when their family members arrived for a viewing, the home was proudly dressed to honor their loved one for their ultimate sacrifice to our country. Bonnie summed it up, “For my part, Scott’s the guy who gave me a rose that doesn’t die, when he showed me the stone he had engraved for my daughter and then built a beautiful spot in a stone wall in her memory. There is no way for me to repay him except to honor him through Rotary, and through the Rotary Foundation with the Paul Harris Award. Of all the people I know in Rotary, Scott King exemplifies “Service Above Self” – in all walks of his life; and he epitomizes the spirit and intent of the highest award that Rotary has to bestow.”

Wolfeboro Library hosts Amy Kwei tonight WOLFEBORO — Amy Kwei will present a program about her book “A Concubine for the Family” at the Wolfeboro Public Library on Thursday, October 3, 2013 at 7 p.m. Based on the story of the author’s own grandparents, “A Concubine for the Family” presents a fascinating picture of daily life and society during a tumultuous period in Chinese history. Set during the years 1937 to 1941, Kwei tells the story of Purple Jade, who gives a younger woman to her husband as a birthday gift. This is a story of upperclass upheaval and family solidarity in a time of war and destruction. Kirkus Review called the novel “an engaging family saga by a talented storyteller.” Author Lisa See praised the book, saying that she “really

enjoyed the story.” A book signing will follow the presentation. Amy Kwei is a Shanghai born Chinese-American who has twice won the Talespinner Competition sponsored by the Poughkeepsie Journal. An excerpt from “A Concubine for the Family” was published in the Skollie magazine of the Aspen Writers Foundation as a short story. Her young adult novel “Intrigue in the House of Wong” was published in 2009, and her short stories, children’s stories and essays have appeared in numerous magazines. Kwei is currently working on “Under the Red Moon” a sequel to “A Concubine for the Family.” For further information about this event, call 569-2428 or visit www. wolfeborolibrary.org.

PLYMOUTH — The Department of Music, Theatre, and Dance at Plymouth State University will present Tennessee Williams’ drama The Glass Menagerie Thursday through Friday, October 3–6 in the Studio Theatre at the Silver Center for the Arts. The show will be presented on Thursday and Friday at 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. The Glass Menagerie was first staged in Chicago in 1944 and moved to Broadway in 1945, where it ran for 561 performances and won the prestigious New York Drama Critics Award. Director Paul Mroczka says, “The Glass Menagerie is about family, love and the need to break away. In this memory play, Tom Wingfield grapples with the guilt he feels in leaving his sister and mother in order to pursue his dreams and future.” Tom Wingfield, the narrator and a character in the play, is portrayed by Tomer Oz, a senior theatre arts major from Exeter. Throughout, the play presents themes on topics such as duty, freedom and confinement, family, gender specific roles and the relationship between sisters and brothers. Professor of Theatre Elizabeth Daily portrays Tom’s mother, Amanda Wingfield. Daily says,

“Amanda Wingfield is an iconic role and is one of the monumental roles that a woman can play from the American canon. She is complex because of her situation in life, finding herself abandoned with two children in an area of the country that is not familiar to her. She is scrappy and finds ways to clothe and feed a family through the Great Depression. Her dilemma is that she has a child who requires special care and she is desperate to find solutions. She is complex because there are so many layers of emotion in whatever she does; but everything she does is to keep her family afloat. She’s also a great flirt and a constant talker!” Tom’s sister, Laura Wingfield, is portrayed by junior theatre arts and communication studies double major Meg Anchukaitis from Walpole, Mass. A childhood illness has left Laura with a limp, and she has an inferiority complex that has caused her to be isolated from the outside world. She has created a world of her own symbolized by her collection of glass figurines. Tickets for The Glass Menagerie are $15 for adults and $12 for seniors and youth at the Silver Center Box Office, (603) 535-2787 or (800) 779-3869. Tickets are also available online at silver.plymouth.edu.

OBITUARIES

Samuel W. Petrucci, 86 GILFORD — Samuel W. Petrucci, 86, resident of both Gilford NH and Fort Pierce FL, died unexpectedly Friday, September 27, 2013, in Scranton PA, from natural causes. Born on December 22, 1926, Sam grew up in Medford MA. He lived a long and colorful life, regaling his friends and family with his many claims to fame. At age 16, he joined the Navy and was a radio operator on the USS Willard Keith. After the war, Sam studied art at Vesper George and went on to become a successful commercial illustrator, package designer and airbrush artist. Sam’s career spanned six decades. One of his earliest clients was the Hassenfeld Brothers Toy Company, for whom he designed the original logo and boxes for Hasbro’s GI Joe line of toys. In recent years, he took great pleasure in being a special guest at GI Joe conventions where he signed autographs and met his many fans. Later, Sam was employed by the prestigious Gunn Associates in Boston where he designed packaging and logos for many well known companies and products.

Sam was a voracious reader and enjoyed golfing with his buddies, fishing with his grandchildren, nature photography, alligator hunting, and painting wildlife and landscapes in oils. Sam designed the family home at Lake Shore Park on Lake Winnepesaukee and was admired for his countless talents. As he often pointed out to everybody, Sam was “The Best” at anything he chose to do. Sam was married to his beloved Leona Petrucci (who passed away in 2008) and is survived by his children, Maureen Beaupre of Fernandina Beach FL, Ken Petrucci of Newburyport MA, Lisa Petrucci of Seattle WA, Linda Petrucci of New York NY, and Steven Petrucci of Peabody MA, as well as their spouses and numerous grand and great grandchildren. A memorial service to honor Sam will be held at a future date. Memorial contributions may be left in his name to The Manatee Observation and Education Center, 480 N. Indian River Drive, Fort Pierce FL 34950, www.manateecenter.com/index.php/support

carries more influence than the testimony of a random stranger. That’s why you should build evidence of your social standing before you make your recommendation. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll be courted by those who want your money, time or attention. If the price tag is low, you’ll give your money. It’s less valuable than your attention right now. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If you play it too safe, it’s like you’re not playing at all -- rather, you’re working to be like everyone else. Artistry is diminished where there are telltale signs of the labor involved. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 3). You’re in demand this year. It’s not that you’re playing hard to get. It’s just that so many people require your attention that you actually are hard to get. But a fascinating someone succeeds in capturing your attention in November. December brings a victory, and January adds new members to your group. Aquarius and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 12, 1, 22, 28 and 40. Today’s Birthdays: Basketball Hall of Famer Marques O. Haynes is 87. Composer Steve Reich is 77. Rock and roll star Chubby Checker is 72. Actor Alan Rachins is 71. Sen. Jeff Bingaman, D-N.M., is 70. Magician Roy Horn is 69. Singer Lindsey Buckingham is 64. Jazz musician Ronnie Laws is 63. Blues singer Keb’ Mo’ is 62. Former astronaut Kathryn Sullivan is 62. Baseball Hall of Famer Dave Winfield is 62. Baseball Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley is 59. Civil rights activist Rev. Al Sharpton is 59. Actor Hart Bochner is 57. Actor Peter Frechette is 57. Golfer Fred Couples is 54. Actor-comedian Greg Proops is 54. Actor Jack Wagner is 54. Rock musician Tommy Lee is 51. Actor Clive Owen is 49. Actress Janel Moloney is 44. Singer Gwen Stefani is 44. Pop singer Kevin Richardson is 42. Rock singer G. Love is 41. Actress Keiko Agena is 40. Actress Neve Campbell is 40. Singer India.Arie is 38. Actress Alanna Ubach is 38. Actor Seann (cq) William Scott is 37. Actress Shannyn Sossamon is 35. Rock musician Josh Klinghoffer is 34. Actor Seth Gabel is 32. Actress Tessa Thompson is 30. Actress-singer Ashlee Simpson is 29.

by Chad Carpenter

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It is safer for your heart to choose friendship over love. When both exist in the same relationship, today’s best bet is to put the precedence on friendship and let love fall into place. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It is human nature to assume that others have your capabilities, but this couldn’t be farther from the truth today. The helping hand you need is at the end of your own arm. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Approximately 90 percent of your activities at work would have been impossible to accomplish a century ago. But the one thing that remains the same is that people still need to feel important. CANCER (June 22-July 22). People won’t say what they mean -- that’s life as usual. Most human discourse depends on the other person’s ability to extract meaning from the larger context. You’re up to the challenge. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Kindness is not as prevalent as it needs to be in the world. Kindness is the value you would be wise to lean on now. It will do more good in the world than intelligence, beauty, charm or might. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You can be romantic at times, but right now it’s easy to see the benefit of autonomy. You don’t live for the sake of others, and you don’t expect them to live for your sake. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re not completely sold on the contributions or potential contributions of your teammates. But the bottom line is, you’ll win if you band together, and you’ll lose if you don’t. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Where your mind goes in the time between activities is most enlightening. Who or what do you think of en route to work, when you’re waiting in line or just before you fall asleep? That’s where your heart is. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You sometimes wonder whether past hurt will really disappear if you revisit it and process it. The answer is a resounding yes, especially if you make the effort this afternoon. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The testimony of a person others see as important

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Thursday, Oct. 3, the 276th day of 2013. There are 89 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 3, 1990, West Germany and East Germany ended 45 years of postwar division, declaring the creation of a reunified country. On this date: In 1226, St. Francis of Assisi, founder of the Franciscan order, died; he was canonized in 1228. In 1789, President George Washington declared Nov. 26, 1789, a day of Thanksgiving to express gratitude for the creation of the United States of America. In 1863, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed the last Thursday in November Thanksgiving Day. In 1929, the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes formally changed its name to the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. In 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt established the Office of Economic Stabilization. In 1951, the New York Giants captured the National League pennant by a score of 5-4 as Bobby Thomson hit a three-run homer off the Brooklyn Dodgers’ Ralph Branca in the “shot heard ‘round the world.” In 1961, “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” also starring Mary Tyler Moore, made its debut on CBS. In 1962, astronaut Wally Schirra blasted off from Cape Canaveral aboard the Sigma 7 on a nine-hour flight. In 1991, Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton entered the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. In 1995, the jury in the O.J. Simpson murder trial found the former football star not guilty of the 1994 slayings of his former wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ronald Goldman (however, Simpson was later found liable in a civil trial). In 2002, five people were shot to death in the Washington, D.C. area within a 14-hour period, beginning the hunt for the “Beltway Sniper.” (In all, ten people were killed; mastermind John Allen Muhammad and teenage accomplice Lee Boyd Malvo were later caught.) Ten years ago: A tiger attacked magician Roy Horn of duo “Siegfried & Roy” during a performance in Las Vegas, leaving the superstar illusionist in critical condition on his 59th birthday. Illustrator and children’s book author William Steig died in Boston at age 95. Five years ago: Amid dire warnings of economic disaster, a reluctant Congress abruptly reversed course and approved a historic $700 billion government bailout of the battered financial industry; President George W. Bush swiftly signed it. Thirteen years to the day after O.J. Simpson was acquitted of murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman, the former football star was found guilty of robbing two sports-memorabilia dealers at gunpoint in a Las Vegas hotel room. (Simpson was later sentenced to nine to 33 years in prison.) One year ago: An aggressive Mitt Romney sparred with President Barack Obama on the economy and domestic issues in their first campaign debate. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton promised a full and transparent probe of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Thursday, October 3, 2013— Page 23

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Dear Annie: I have a problem that I have never seen in your column. My 64-year-old father-in-law sends my middle-aged husband pornographic pictures. My husband and I share the same email address, and the last picture was extremely explicit. My husband does not check his email regularly. When he does, he ignores most of his father’s stuff, thank heavens. I haven’t deleted these emails, but I now think my father-in-law is a total creep. Is there anything I should do? I hope he sees himself in this letter. -- Offended Wife Dear Offended: Is your husband aware that his father is sending him these photos? If not, tell him. Then ask whether he wants to receive these pictures. He may not care, or he may prefer not to confront his father. Since they’re meant for him, he should have the final word, although you can encourage him to tell Dad to stop. We also recommend that you open your own email account so you are not subjected to this assault on your senses. Although why you would voluntarily open any email from this man is beyond us. Dear Annie: I’m 14 years old and adopted. As I’ve gotten older, the feeling of wanting to know my real family has grown stronger. Because my adoption wasn’t open, I can’t meet my biological family. I know the government means well by these laws, but it makes me feel empty inside. My adoptive family drives me insane with the excuse, “I can’t tell you much until you’re 18.” Isn’t there something they can tell me? Can the government really bar me from seeing my birth family? -- Left Lonely in My Heart. Dear Lonely: First of all, your “real family” is the one that raised you. There are legitimate reasons why birth

records are not intended to be seen by kids under age 18. Reunions with birth parents sometimes work out OK, but they also can be difficult, unpleasant, depressing and a huge disappointment, especially if you are expecting too much. Teenagers, in particular, often go through emotionally rough waters, becoming upset with their adoptive families and mistakenly believing the biological family would be easier. Your parents are simply trying to protect you. But we understand that this is hard and unsatisfying for you. There are counselors who specialize in this field. Ask your parents to make an appointment for all of you to talk with someone who will assist in figuring out the best way to deal with your frustrations and how much information your parents can give you. They can get a referral from your pediatrician. Dear Annie: “In Turmoil in Kansas,” the 45-year-old gay man, could have been me 16 years ago. I lived alone in Michigan, but I had no job, no social life, no partner and only one friend -- and he lived far away. I was in the closet and didn’t know anything about PFLAG. I found that smoky, noisy and crowded bars were not for me. I was so scared to tell anyone I’m gay. I am now 46, have a great partner, live in Florida, joined the local PFLAG chapter, have two great jobs and am out to everyone, including my very accepting parents -- something I never expected. I never go to gay bars, although I have many gay pen pals. In two years, I’ll be moving to Boston to live with my partner, who is transferring jobs. Isn’t it great how life can be so wonderful after being depressed and lonely for so long? Please tell him not to give up hope. -- Sarasota, Fla.
