Meredith firm was called in to investigate event(s) that led to Gilford police suspensions By Gail OBer


GILFORD — The Daily Sun has learned that an independent company was hired to do an investigation into the Police Department after Chief Kevin Keenan was placed on paid administrative leave. An official who did not wish to be identified said yesterday that Municipal Resources Inc. of Meredith has interviewed both Keenan and School Resource Officer Holly Harris, who is also on a paid administrative leave. The official said other members of the Gilford Police Department have been interviewed as well and that MRI will be issuing a report of its findings sometime in the near future. MRI’s role is to offer an unbiased view of the as yet unspecified reasons for both to be on paid leave. Keenan has been on leave since August 29 and Harris has been on leave since the middle see GPd page 8

Little girl who fell down stairs removed from life support By Gail OBer


BELMONT — The 2-year-old girl who fell down a flight of stairs at her Concord Street home Wednesday morning is in grave condition at Dartmouth Hitchcock Memorial Hospital in Lebanon. At a candle-light vigil in Belmont Village last night, family and friends told the nearly 100 people who had gathered to pray for Havana O’Flarherty, for she has been removed from a life-support device. First Baptist Church Pastor James F.

Smith asked the many friends and supporters who had joined the family to help them get through this terrible time. Smith said this Sunday’s service at the First Baptist Church at 49 Church Street will be dedicated to Havana. The service begins at 10 a.m. Smith said Havana attended the Heavenly Sonshine Pre-School at the church and that her mother was a church member. Police stood a respectful distance away from last night candle service on the village green.

Lt. Richard Mann has confirmed that police are investigating the circumstances surrounding Havana’s death but declined any further comment. In a previous media release, Mann said that Belmont Police investigate all instances where a person has died or suffered a serious injury. He said the police wish to extend their sincerest sympathy and prayers to the family. Crystal O’Flarherty is the little girl’s mother.

Shawn Carter now facing 2 charges of first-degree murder By Gail OBer


LACONIA — The man who allegedly chopped his mother and brother to death in the Belmont home on Sunset Drive that they all shared has been indicted by a Belknap County grand jury for two counts of

first-degree homicide. Shawn Carter, 32, was also indicted for two counts of second-degree homicide for the deaths of Priscilla Carter, 59, and Timothy Carter, 39. Each count offers a different theory of each death with first-degree homicide charging

that Carter “purposely” caused the death of his mother and brother. Second-degree homicide means he allegedly recklessly cause their deaths. Priscilla Carter and Timothy Carter were found chopped to death by a Belmont Police officer who went to the house around

Man sets himself on fire on National Mall

WASHINGTON (AP) — A man set himself on fire on the National Mall in the nation’s capital as passers-by rushed over to help douse the flames, officials and witnesses said Friday afternoon. The reason for the self-immolation was not immediately clear and the man’s identity was not disclosed. But it occurred in public view, on a central national gathering place, in a city still rattled by a mass shooting last month and a high-speed car chase outside the U.S. Capitol on Thursday that ended with a woman being shot dead by police. The man on the Mall suffered life-threatening injuries and was airlifted to the hospital, said District of Columbia fire department spokesman Tim Wilson. He was standing by himself in the center portion of the Mall when he emptied the contents of a red gasoline can on himself and set himself on fire moments later, said Katy Scheflen, who witnessed it as she walked across the area. Police say they responded around 4:20 p.m. Friday. Scheflen said passing joggers took off their see ON FIRE page 9

Prospect for quick end to partial shutdown seems remote WASHINGTON (AP) — Prospects for a swift end to the 4-day-old partial government shutdown all but vanished Friday as lawmakers squabbled into the weekend and increasingly shifted their focus to a midmonth deadline for averting a threatened first-ever default. “This isn’t some damn game,” said House Speaker John Boehner, as the White House and Democrats held to their position of agreeing to negotiate only after the government is reopened and the $16.7 trillion debt limit raised.

House Republicans appeared to be shifting their demands, de-emphasizing their previous insistence on defunding the health care overhaul in exchange for re-opening the government. Instead, they ramped up calls for cuts in federal benefit programs and future deficits, items that Boehner has said repeatedly will be part of any talks on debt limit legislation. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., also said the two issues were linked. “We not only have a shutdown, but we have the full faith and credit of our nation before

us in a week or ten days,” he said. Reid and other Democrats blocked numerous attempts by Sen. Ted Cruz to approve House-passed bills reopening portions of the government. The Texas Republican is a chief architect of the “Defund Obamacare” strategy and met earlier this week with allies in the House and an aide to Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., to confer on strategy. In a lengthy back-and-forth with Reid and other Democrats, Cruz blamed them see SHUTDOWN page 8

HANOI, Vietnam (AP) — Gen. Vo Nguyen Giap, the brilliant and ruthless commander who led the outgunned Vietnamese to victory first over the French and then the Americans, died Friday. The last of the country’s old-guard revolutionaries was 102. A national hero, Giap enjoyed a legacy second only to that of his mentor, founding president and independence leader Ho Chi Minh. Giap died in a military hospital in the

capital of Hanoi, where he had spent nearly four years because of illnesses, according to a government official and a person close to him. Both spoke on condition of anonymity before the death was announced in statecontrolled media. Known as the “Red Napoleon,” Giap commanded guerrillas who wore sandals made of car tires and lugged artillery piece by piece over mountains to encircle and crush the French army at Dien Bien Phu

in 1954. The unlikely victory — still studied at military schools — led to Vietnam’s independence and hastened the collapse of colonialism across Indochina and beyond. Giap then defeated the U.S.-backed South Vietnam government in April 1975, reuniting a country that had been split into communist and noncommunist states. He regularly accepted heavy combat losses to achieve his goals. see GENERAL page 11

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama’s decision to scrap his Asia trip is a setback for his much-advertised pledge to shift the focus of foreign policy to the Pacific and a boost for China’s attempt to gain influence in the region.

By staying home because of the partial government shutdown, Obama hands new Chinese leader Xi Jinping a chance to fill the void at two Asian summits Obama had planned to attend. It’s the third time since 2010 that Obama has cancelled an Asia

trip, all because of domestic political crises. Washington’s budget crisis has reached the point where the White House felt compelled to skip Asia, giving Obama room to work with Congress on reopening the govsee CHINA page 5

Family of biker run over in NYC incident was devoted dad just trying to calm things down NEW YORK (AP) — A motorcycle rider who was struck by an SUV during a motorcycle rally that turned violent is a family man who was simply trying to defuse a tense situation, his attorney and family members said Friday. Tears streamed down Dayana Mejia’s face during a press conference as she described her longtime partner, Edwin Mieses Jr., as an adoring father to the couple’s two children. “He is the best father I know,” she said. “And he would give the shirt off his back to anyone.” Dozens of bikers rode alongside a black Range Rover on Manhattan’s West Side Highway last weekend until a biker slowed down and the vehicles bumped, police said. Video captured at the scene shows the SUV surrounded by helmeted riders. In the video, one rider approaches the vehicle and peers into the driver’s side window. Police said others tried to damage the SUV before the driver, Alexian Lien, took off and plowed over Mieses. The bikers then chased after Lien and smashed his car window with their helmets, then pulled him from the SUV and beat him to the point where he required stitches. Lien’s wife, Rosalyn Ng, has said that her family’s

sympathies go out to Mieses, but that they had to flee a dangerous situation. She said her husband was trying to protect her and their 2-year-old child, who was also in the car at the time. Mieses, who is from Lawrence, Mass., suffered a broken spine, fractured ribs, a punctured lung and a torn aortic valve, said his defense attorney, Gloria Allred. His injuries may have left him paralyzed. “He told everyone to move on and go back to riding, and turned his back to the SUV to start walking back to his own bike,” Allred said. “It was then, with his back to the SUV, and as he was in front of it, that he was run over and crushed.” Mejia said a difficult situation has been made worse by what she described as a “perception” that some people have about the riders who participated in the rally on Sunday. “They are not gang members. They are not thugs,” Mejia said. “They are FedEx drivers, plumbers, military reservists, musicians. They are fathers and brothers and sons, and sisters and mothers.” She also said Mieses didn’t know any of the people he was riding with on Sunday aside from one friend who traveled to New York with him.

Mejia was referred to in media reports as Mieses’ wife, but called him her partner Friday. Allred refused to comment on the fact that Mieses hasn’t had a valid driver’s license or permit in the state of Massachusetts since 1999. She said it was irrelevant to the case because he wasn’t on his motorcycle when he was run over by the SUV. Mieses was recently arrested in Andover, Mass., for driving with a revoked license. He also never applied for a motorcycle license. Records show that in June he was named a habitual offender and his right to drive in the state was revoked until 2017. It wasn’t clear if he had been licensed in any other state. Mieses and the others seen on the video were participating in a periodic rally in which more than 1,000 bikers head for Times Square, police said. The Manhattan district attorney’s office has charged one rider, 28-year-old Christopher Cruz, of Passaic, N.J., with unlawful imprisonment and reckless driving while authorities continue to search for other cyclists. Investigators and prosecutors are tracking down and talking to dozens of helmet-clad motorcyclists seen in the video, which was posted online.

BRAITHWAITE, La. (AP) — Pickups hauling boat trailers and flatbed trucks laden with crab traps exited vulnerable, low-lying areas of southeast Louisiana on Friday as Tropical Storm Karen headed toward the northern Gulf Coast, a late-arriving worry in what had been a slow hurricane season in the U.S. On Friday, Alabama joined Louisiana, Mississippi and Florida in declaring a state of emergency as officials and residents prepared for Karen, expected to near the central Gulf Coast on Saturday as a weak hurricane or tropical storm. The Federal Emergency Management Agency and Interior Department

recalled workers, furloughed because of the government shut down, to deal with the storm and help state and local agencies. Karen would be the second named storm of a quiet hurricane season to make landfall in the U.S. — the first since Tropical Storm Andrea hit Florida in June. Along with strong winds, the storm was forecast to produce rainfall of 1 to 3 inches through Monday night. Isolated rain totals of up to 6 inches were possible. Late Friday, the National Hurricane Center in Miami reported that Karen was losing strength, with maximum sustained winds that had dropped to

45 mph (72 kph). Karen was located about 205 miles (330 kilometers) south-southwest of the mouth of the Mississippi River and was on the move again, heading north-northwest at 7 mph (11 kph). Forecast tracks showed the storm possibly crossing the southeast Louisiana coast before veering eastward toward south Alabama and the Florida Panhandle. But forecasters cautioned that the track was uncertain. “We are confident on a northeastward turn. Just not exactly sure where or when that turn will occur,” Rick Knabb, director of the National Hurricane Center in Miami, said earlier Friday.

The Hidden Patient: The Alzheimer’s Caregiver 63% of family caregivers die before their loved one By Jennifer Harvey RN BSN CDP Jennifer Harvey RN BSN CDP Clinical Director and Co-Owner at Live Free Home Health Care is a graduate of Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree. Following graduation she worked on a medical/Surgical floor at a hospital in Illinois before she and husband Jason relocated to New Hampshire. Jennifer spent four years with the Derryfield Medical Group in Manchester before moving to the Lakes Region and opening Live Free Home Health Care in 2006 Jennifer earned the title of Certified Dementia Care Practitioner in 2012 through the National Council of Certified Dementia Care Practitioners. Imagine waking up in the morning in an unfamiliar place, unable to remember what your name is or how you go there. You struggle in vain to figure out the reality of your situation, but your memory is completely blank. Utter confusion turns into fear and anger, and you lash out emotionally at the stranger who is standing by your bed, talking to you in soothing tones. This scenario paints a bleak picture of how an Alzheimer’s patient views the world on a regular basis. Now imagine you’re standing in front of a person you care deeply about, like a spouse or a parent, and that person is looking at you with no recognition at all. As it does nearly every day, your heart breaks a little bit more, but you push the pain aside and go on with your duties caring for your loved one with Alzheimer’s. According to the Alzheimer’s Association in the “2009 Alzheimer’s Disease Facts and Figures” report, onein eight persons aged 65 and older has Alzheimer’s disease. LIVE FREE HOME HEALTH CARE knows many in our local community are victims of this progressive and degenerative brain disorder, and the number of those affected will continue to grow over the next 15 years. Nearly 10 million Americans currently provide unpaid care to someone with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia. Unfortunately, 63 percent of these caregivers will die during their time providing care, with many family caregivers dying an average of two years before the Alzheimer’s patient for whom they care. With the unrelenting mental strain that caring for someone with Alzheimer’s affords, it can be one of the most difficult care provisions. Caregivers have several issues that contribute to their stress levels, such as difficulty in “letting go” of the family member affected by Alzheimer’s; feelings of guilt when considering placement or using out of home help; or fear of appearing vulnerable if help is sought. Oftentimes, the care for parents must be taken on by their adult children. Dubbed the “Sandwich Generation,” these adults have the added stress of raising children, dealing with financial burdens and limited resources, and maintaining a full-time job on top of the care.This stress and 24/7 care translates into a high incidence of spousal abuse among families who care for someone with Alzheimer’s, with the affected person being the victim or the perpetrator of the abuse. When a person with Alzheimer’s is insisting on something unattainable, it can be very difficult for a caregiver to handle. It can also be hard to deal with the person’s disorientation to reality. The person with Alzheimer’s may think the caregiver is someone other than who he or she is, perhaps thinking the caregiver is a child or a cousin, rather than a spouse or sibling. Certainly, these statistics showcase a tremendous need for chronic and long-term caregiver respite care, as respite is required more than once or twice per year to be truly beneficial. Caregivers should understand that support is needed and they need to take a break and enjoy a life of their own. Simply devoting a life entirely to taking care of someone can ruin two people’s lives. For some caregivers who do enjoy regular respite, it rejuvenates and affords them something to look forward to. Call in some caregiving reinforcements if you recognize the signs of burnout, such as: - Excessive stress and tension - Debilitating depression - Persistent anxiety, anger or guilt - Decreased overall life satisfaction - Relationship conflicts and social isolation - Lower immunity and greater need for healthcare services - Excessive use of medications, drugs or alcohol It is also important to take some preemptive steps to avoid burnout altogether. offers the following simple strategies that will fit into the caregiver’s most demanding days and can energize him/her against the pitfalls of excessive stress: - Schedule mini-workouts throughout the day: Regular exercise not only keeps a person fit, it releases endorphins that keep a person happy. - Take time to play: In the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease, loved ones should be included in short walks, board games or jigsaw puzzles. A daily dose of fun is good medicine for both caregiver and the patient. - Try something new: Caregivers should challenge themselves to learn something new while “on the job.” With just a few minutes of practice each day, then can flex mental muscles and release harmful steam. - Keep ‘em laughing: Humor is a well-known antidote to stress, sadness, illness and boredom. Caregivers should give themselves permission to chuckle at the absurdities they and their loved one experience. - Ask for help: For someone who is used to operating independently, the realities of caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease can be a real eye-opener. Those with strong support systems, creative respite arrangements, and regular time away not only fare better, they also find more satisfaction in their caregiving roles. Many caregivers with loved ones suffering from Alzheimer’s or dementia are unaware of the options available to them, such as in-home care and respite services. There are many choices when it comes to Alzheimer’s care. Loved ones can remain safe, active and comfortable – at home.

Gilford business owner indicted by grand jury, charged with meth making By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

GILFORD — A Country Club Road business owner was indicted by a Belknap County grand jury yesterday for conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine, manufacturing methamphetamine, and possession of marijuana. Steven Simoneau, 56, of 194 County Club Road was arrested and charged on May 30 after the Belknap County Sheriff’s Department along with the the N.H. Drug Enforcement Administration’s Clandestine Lab Team during a raid on his property. Affidavits from the time of his arrest and supporting the state’s request for cash bail said Simoneau’s arrest stemmed from an earlier methamphetamine bust on Academy Street in Laconia during the previous week but the details of the connection are in search warrant affidavits that were sealed by Judge Jim Carroll during his original appearance in the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division. According to the affidavit supporting the state’s request for cash bail, Simoneau was allegedly trying to burn evidence of a meth-making operation in a fire pit on his property behind the house he shared with his elderly mother. Yesterday’s indictments indicated that police recovered lithium and pseudo-ephedrine on Simoneau’s property. The property is the site of the Simoneau and Sons Concrete business.

In the week before the raid at Simoneau’s house, a sheriff’s deputy who was watching an apartment at 21 Academy St. saw a man, later identified as Joel Paquette, riding his bicycle away from the apartment about an hour after he had gotten there. The deputy approached Paquette who agreed to be interviewed. Paquette said Deputy E. Justin Blanchette could examine the water bottle he had on his bicycle and Blanchette allegedly found oxycodone pills and Valium pills. After he arrested Paquette, Blanchette went to return his bicycle to the apartment (at Paquette’s request) and Donald Doucet,40, opened the door and told Blanchette that Paquette’s girlfriend was inside. Blanchette entered the living room and saw materials commonly used in methamphetamine production lying in plain sight on the couch. He also saw a mirror and straw on the floor. Both Doucet and Christy Jarrell, 26, were arrested. All three are in the Belknap County House of Corrections awaiting trial for various counts of possession of narcotics and meth-making. After his arrest, Simoneau was initially held on $5,000 cash bail. After his appearance in court on a Friday, Carroll ordered him held on $2,000 cash-only bail but allowed him to go home for the weekend to care for his elderly mother. Simoneau posted the $2,000 cash on Monday.

Tardif accepts spot on Ward 5 ballot opposite Hamel LACONIA — Former mayor Tom Tardif yesterday confirmed that he will be a candidate for the City Council seat in Ward 5 in the general election on November 5. . On Thursday, a recount of the ballots cast in the primary election last month confirmed that Tardif received three-write-in votes, enough to entitle CHINA from page 2 ernment. Had Obama left to attend the meetings, it would have given weight to critics who have said he’s more willing to negotiate with foreign leaders than the speaker of the House. Secretary of State John Kerry will represent him at the summits in Indonesia and Brunei. Budget strains had already put a damper on the Pentagon’s push to assert itself in the Pacific, and administration officials had begun casting the shift in policy more in terms of expanding diplomatic efforts, creating more trade and economic ties and just showing up in Asia more often. Now the showing up part has taken a hit. The Syria crisis is only the latest example of how Obama’s foreign policy is still drawn to the Middle East. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel was in Asia last month when Washington was drawn to the brink of military intervention before Syria agreed to give up its chemical weapons arsenal, diverting Hagel’s attention. The situation works for China, which is rapidly modernizing its armed forces and boosting its regional influence.

Blame James Madison for the shutdown The problem was caused by James Madison. And by the 39 other men who signed the Constitution in 1787. The problem, of course, is the government shutdown. It was caused because the Framers of the Constitution wisely provided for separation of powers among the three branches of government. The president would faithfully execute the laws and be commander in chief of the military, but both houses of Congress would have to approve of every penny the government could spend. In the early republic, it was widely assumed that presidents could veto legislation only it was deemed unconstitutional. Disagreeing with policy was not enough. That changed after Andrew Jackson vetoed the recharter of the Second Bank of the United States in 1832 and was promptly re-elected. Jackson claimed to act on constitutional grounds, but it came to be understood that presidents could veto laws they disagreed with. That understanding, together with the constitutional structure, imposes something like a duty of consultation between the president and members of Congress. Otherwise — and you may have heard about this — the government will have to shut down. Barack Obama hasn’t engaged in much consultation this summer and fall. He has announced he won’t negotiate with House Speaker John Boehner. His defenders note that Boehner has stated publicly he won’t negotiate with the president. Boehner believes Obama unfairly upped the ante in their “grand bargain” negotiations in August 2011. As a practical matter, it’s Obama’s refusal to negotiate that matters. A member of Congress can’t get time with the president or his top aides on demand. A president can always get through to a member of Congress — as Obama did, finally, Monday night for a conversation described as “less than 10 minutes.” Astonishingly, Obama said in a prepared statement that no president had negotiated ancillary issues with Congress when a shutdown was threatened. Four Pinocchios, said Washington Post fact checker Glenn Kessler. The Post’s Wonkblog helpfully listed 17 government shutdowns since the late 1970s. Almost all involved legislative-executive disagreement over ancillary issues. The bulk of pundit opinion, on the Right as well as the Left, holds that House Republicans blundered by attaching Sen. Ted Cruz’s defund Obamacare amendment to the continuing resolution funding the government. Democrats would never accept that, they say. And voters will blame Republicans for shutting down government.

Many pundits also say House Republicans’ amendment delaying Obamacare was foolish for the same reason, although “delay” polls much better than “defund.” Cruz argues that once people receive Obamacare subsidies, they will be hooked and support the program. It’s an argument akin to Mitt Romney’s 47 percent. But beneficiaries of government don’t necessarily vote Democratic. The state with the highest percentage of residents who receive disability insurance, West Virginia, voted 62 percent for Romney. Moreover, it’s not clear that Obamacare subsidies will be that generous or visible. On Tuesday, the day the health exchanges were supposed to open, many Obamacare websites were giving error messages. Divided government is not exactly a novel thing. We’ve had a White House controlled by one party and at least one house of Congress held by the other for 32 of the last 45 years — 70 percent of the time. It’s the default mode, not an exception. The current divisions result from what I call volitional migration in my just-published book, “Shaping Our Nation: How Surges of Migration Have Transformed America and Its Politics.” Americans have been moving to places they consider culturally congenial. Democratic voters — blacks, Hispanics, gentry liberals — are heavily clustered in certain central cities. They give Democrats an advantage in the Electoral College. Republican voters are more evenly spread around beyond these Democratic bastions. That gives Republicans an advantage in the House of Representatives. So both sides have a legitimate mandate — but not an unlimited one. Republicans are furious that their members can’t defund or delay Obamacare. They want to see politicians stand up yelling, “No!” Theater has a function in politics. But in fact, they’ve had a partial victory this year, a win that didn’t seem likely last December. By accepting the sequester despite its defense cuts, Republicans have actually dialed down domestic discretionary spending. Democrats’ position now is essentially the sequester. They’re swallowing something they hate. No wonder Obama seems sullen. So both sides will have frustratingly partial victories and not get everything they want. That’s how James Madison’s system is supposed to work in a closely divided country.

LETTERS To veterans, Shea-Porter & Kuster are out because of this vote To The Daily Sun, Something Veterans of N.H. may care about as a voting bloc, parties aside, to think about in the future? Our two congressional representatives. Shea-Porter and Kuster voted with their party and against the Veteran Community of the nation to not fund Veteran Affairs during the “shutdown”. This, their negative vote, will affect thousands of veterans, young and old. They had the opportunity to Stand with the Veterans of N.H. and the country and do the right thing (party aside) or think of themselves. They made a choice. In the future, the Veterans on N.H. will have a choice and as a bloc we can stand together as veterans and make the correct choice. Anybody BUT Shea-Porter.. Anybody BUT Kuster! Believe me, I know our choices will be limited especially knowing the one

who will be running against Shea-Porter. He’s not a veteran candidate BUT this can be a lesson. Having your picture taken handing a veteran a medal earned long ago or telling the story of your loved one who served in the past or your recent trip visiting the troops won’t save your political butt at home. Faith, Trust, Truth, Responsibility and Accountability. We have told you before, Republican or Democrat, it makes no difference. Veterans no longer accept 2-3-4th place. Veterans of N.H., it’s time to take your organizational hats off and make a statement as one — VETERANS. Next time you vote, it’s not Republican or Democrat here in N.H., it’s... VETERAN and remember — SheaPorter and Kuster are OUT! . . . for a start. Bob Jones Meredith

Senator Hosmer has reached across aisle much more than most To The Daily Sun, In response to Belknap County Republican Chair Alan Glassman’s September 16th letter assailing State Senator Andrew Hosmer’s voting record, I would assert there are few in the N.H. Senate who have reached across the aisle as often as Senator Hosmer. In reality, Senator Hosmer has maintained his promise to his constituents to legislate in a common sense, bipartisan fashion, that puts people over politics. To dispute this is to simply defy the facts and his voting record. I would urge Mr. Glassman to not rewrite history. The GOP-controlled Legislature tried to do away with kindergarten and to lower the drop-out age, took away millions from hospitals

in uncompensated care payments, attempted to deprive women of access of accurate medical information and defied the state’s promise to our disabled population to end the wait list. Moreover, Mr. Glassman cannot give Republicans credit for balancing N.H.’s budget: it is mandated by our state Constitution. I recognize that Mr. Glassman is following the GOP playbook. But Sen. Hosmer has demonstrated that he makes meaningful promises and delivers what his constituents voted for: representation of their best interests in Concord.

What we have here, laddies & gentlemen, is a failure to negotiate To The Daily Sun, Obama in negotiation? “My Way or No Way!” I had a dream. I met a terrorist in a dark ally and he said “I am going to kill you and your sons and then take your women”. I’m noted for my negotiating skills so I offered, “Take my women, but instead of killing me why not just make me your slave.” He sneered,“I never have enough women,

but I already have too many slaves who will die for me, but I will shoot your in the head so you die quickly rather than shoot you in the gut so you die in agony.” The next day the Main Stream Media reported, “Man commits suicide rather than negotiate. Benevolent terrorist adopts man’s wife and daughters.” Dale “P.” Eddy Gilford

LETTERS It’s not cut in food stamps that does the harm, it’s lack of jobs

Extraction of oil from tar sands is most polluting form on earth

To The Daily Sun, One wonders if James Veverka misleads the public intentionally or if his irrational hate for Republicans makes him unable to think logically or comprehend what he reads, even the article he referenced. Among other misleading claims in his hate filled diatribe on September 26, Veverka talks about hardships (reduction of SNAP —food stamp — benefits) to 31 million poor Americans. This hardship is being caused by Democrats, not, as he charges by Republicans. The article that Veverka references ( cms/?fa=view&id=3899), that we were apparently not supposed to check, clearly ties this hardship to two things, both controlled by Democrats. First, Democrats set an expiration date and criteria for the identified SNAP benefits. Second, the USDA, under President Obama’s control, provided the information which reduced the SNAP benefits. But, it is not the loss of a few dollars of SNAP benefits that so greatly harms middle and lower income Americans, it is the lack of decent paying jobs. If Veverka really cared about the people he claims to care about, he would demand an end to President Obama’s policies that kill jobs, cut workers’ hours, cause employers to stop hiring altogether, or turn fulltime into part-time jobs.

To The Daily Sun, How would you describe the difference between modern war and modern industry — between say, bombing and strip mining, or between chemical warfare and chemical manufacturing? The difference seems to be only that in war the victimization of humans is directly intentional and in industry it is “accepted as a “tradeoff.” — Wendell Berry WHAT ARE TAR SANDS? I needed to know just what the Keystone Pipeline would transport. I learned that the extraction of tar sands is the most polluting form of energy extraction on earth. I also learned that the Keystone Pipeline won’t aid us in gaining independence from foreign oil, and it won’t create the thousands of jobs advocates told us it would. These are just “PIPEDREAMS”. I hope to share with you what I learned about this dirty, nasty, polluting form of energy that is too dangerous and costly for us to let the Keystone Pipeline carry tar sands across our heartland. Producing synthetic crude oil from tar sands generates THREE TIMES the global warming pollution of conventional crude production. Extracting tar sands bitumen — a low grade, high sulfur crude oil — that must be extensively refined to be turned into fuel uses a vast amount of energy and water. Tar sands oil is not only difficult and costly and energy intensive to produce but also the DIRTIEST and more corrosive than conventional oil. Leaks and spills threaten rivers, aquifers and communities along the route. Raw tar sand is nearly solid at room temperature and must be diluted with toxic natural gas liquid condensates to create a thick sludge that travels in highpressure pipelines. The sludge is 50-70 times as thick as conventional crude oil. When spilled, the light natural gas liquid condensates-vaporize, creating a toxic flammable gas that poses a health hazard to emergency responders and nearby landowners. The bitumen which is heavier than water, sinks into rivers and mixes with sediment. Bitumen contains significantly more HEAVY METALS than conventional crude oil and does not biodegrade. Tar sands extraction: 1. Requires 2-5 barrels of water for each barrel of bitumen extracted. 2.Hhas created over 65 square miles of toxic waste ponds. (no plan for disposal) 3. Threatens the health of downstream indigenous communities. 4. Is likely to cause the loss of millions of migratory birds that nest in the forests and wetlands. The proposed Keystone Pipeline would transport raw toxic tar sands oil right through the American heartland from Alberta, Canada to refineries in Texas — and threatens to wreak environmental havoc on both sides of the border and to be exported to anywhere in the world. What’s at risk? Here is a big one, the Ogallala Aquifer as an example. The proposed Keystone Pipeline crosses the Ogallala Aquifer, one of the world’s largest freshwater aquifers that provides 30 percent OF THE GROUND WATER used for irrigation in the United States, and drinking water for millions of Americans. The Aquifer covers areas in South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Texas. One resident whose ranch would be

It has been more than four years since President Obama declared the recession was over. But instead of creating the good new jobs needed to put laid-off workers back to work and provide opportunities for people entering the workforce, President Obama’s policies have put about 13 million new people on food stamps, slowed our economic growth, and created a job environment that is so bad that, in many months, more people give up looking for work than find jobs. Unfortunately, President Obama’s policies do exactly the opposite of what is needed to encourage people to create jobs. Obama regulations, increased costs, and bureaucratic delays created by numerous Federal Agencies, including the Departments of Energy, Treasury, Agriculture, HEW, and many others, make being an employer in America much more difficult and risky. And, rather than rewarding people or businesses that accept those challenges, many new Obama taxes make taking risks less rewarding. The result of Obama policies is that many businesses prefer to invest and create jobs overseas or not to invest at all, than to invest and create good jobs here. Any claimed concerns for America’s poor is fake unless it demands that Obama end his war on America’s employers and businesses that is destroying America’s jobs and making Americans poor.

Industrial wind not just an eyesore, it’s an issue on many fronts To The Daily Sun, To any that have an ear, let them hear: As a resident of the Newfound Region, I am very disgusted by the invasion of industrial wind projects in my community. With the potential of four different foreign-owned projects planned around Newfound Lake, I see the Groton Wind Project as not just an eyesore, but an assault on the environment and the well being of people (taxpayers) who are left dealing with reduced property values, loss of quality of life in their homes and on their property, and strife within their communities. Residents of the Newfound Region living around the Groton Wind Project now live with red flashing lights at night, loud roaring of industrial engines whenever the blades are spinning (day or night), shadow flicker from the blades for hours at a time during various parts of the day, the whooshing of the blades as they spin, and the low frequency vibrations that are not audible but are felt within the body. The Newfound watershed is of great concern as this is what provides residents of this area with drinking water. Industrial wind turbine construction will alter the flow of ground water affecting the watershed in ways no human, specialist, or agency can predict. I have lived in this community for almost a decade and enjoyed the numerous sitings of red-tailed hawks, bald eagles, owls, blue heron, bats, migrating Canadian Geese and other

otes, fox, and yes, even a wolf or two! Raptors rely on the thermal currents of air provided by the Newfound ridge lines in order to feed. A number of birds migrate along the Newfound ridge lines. It is not wise to place 500ft. industrial turbines with blades larger then a 747 spinning at speeds that can reach well over 100-mph directly in the path of such animals that help to control our mosquito population and our rodent population. As for economic benefits, I see very few. There may be a handful of temporary local jobs created, but not guaranteed. There will only be a few permanent jobs created and those are not guaranteed to be filled by local residents either. PILOT payments made by Industrial Wind companies to host towns only reduce the “town portion” of your tax by a minimal amount. The rest of the PILOT money can be used to increase town employee’s payroll or benefits, purchase new equipment, upgrade roads, etc. It is not likely that tax payers will see any significant reduction in their property taxes unless they receive an abatement for the reduced value of their property. Those that benefit the most are the landowners leasing their land to the industrial wind company, and of course, the foreign-owned industrial wind companies. Industrial wind is not just an eyesore issue. This is a quality of life issue, environmental issue, community well being issue, political issue, and an economic issue. Michelle Sanborn

crossed by the Keystone Pipeline said, “I just don’t understand why we’d put our aquifer at risk. If oil gets into the water we’re done. You can’t drink oily water and you can’t irrigate crops with it. “ There have been many spills. Here is a story of a tragic spill which occurred on July 25, 2010. An Enbridge Energy pipeline carrying Canadian tar sands burst near Talmadge Creek, which feeds into the Kalamazoo River that empties into Lake Michigan. Over a MILLION GALLONS spilled into the creek and quickly made its way into the Kalamazoo River contaminating river banks and sediments. Costing $700 MILLION and counting. The cleanup is the MOST COSTLY in U.S. pipeline accident in history. Thousands of people still are affected by the tar sands spill some forced to move, their businesses were hurt and continues to threaten their health. There is no end in sight. Along the waterways, red and white signs warn people the water is closed to fishing, boating and swimming. A constant reminder of the danger of a pipeline carrying toxic Canadian tar sands south into the U.S. The first “PIPEDREAM” is that the pipeline is about jobs forAmericans.Cornell University Global Labor Institute concluded the project would employ 2,500-4,600 construction workers.” Most jobs created will be temporary and non-local.” Keystone Pipeline will not be a source of jobs nor will it play a substantial role in putting Americans to work. To CNN, Robert Jones, vice president of TransCanada told that the project would create only hundreds of permanent jobs. Cornell University Global Labor Institute stated, “it is our assessment-based on publicly available data, that the construction of Keystone Pipeline will create fewer jobs than proponents claimed and may actually destroy more jobs than it generates.” Cornell University stated it would kill jobs by reducing investment in clean renewable energy and efficiency gains. What about reducing our dependence on foreign oil? Here is another “PIPEDREAM”. Advocates of the pipeline fail to mention tar sands oil to be refined on the gulf coast is destined for export. Six foreign companies have already contracted for three-quarters of the oil. Keystone would have diverted Canadian oil from refineries in the Midwest to the gulf coast where it could be refined and exported. Many of these refineries are in Foreign Trade Zones where oil may be exported to international buyers without paying U.S. taxes. Quoted by James Hansen, who directs the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies: “The concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has risen from 280 parts per million to 393 parts per million over the last 150 years. If we turn to these dirtiest of fuels, instead of finding a way to phase out our addiction to fossil fuels, there is no hope of keeping concentrations below 500 parts per million — a level that would as earth’s history shows, leave our children a climate system that is out of their control.” Mr. Hansen further states, “The cost of acting goes far higher the longer we wait — we can’t wait any longer to avoid the worst and be judged immoral by coming generations.” Please do not support the keystone Pipeline there is no “trade-off” worth the risk to the United States and the planet.

LETTERS If 9/10 of the FDA is ‘non-essential’, why fund it at all? To The Daily Sun, It has been recently reported that 93 percent of FDA personnel were deemed non-essential. That breaks down to 9 out of 10 employees. How much money does this mostly nonessential department control? An online article reported that the 2012 FDA budget was going to stay the same at $2.5 billion dollars. This year, in a press release, the FDA said that it requested $4.7 billion dollars to ensure the safety of food and medical devices. That is not quite double last year’s budget. And now, the $4.7 billion dollar question; in this bad economy, with millions of Americans financially suffering, why would this government fund a depart-

ment that is almost wholly non-essential? An additional question could be, is it possible for a private company to do a better job, for much less money? If we care about those paying taxes, should we at least explore some of the answers to these questions? We need to make much wiser decisions in how our immense, yearly tax burden is spent. Maybe, just maybe, we could decrease taxation, which would effectively give everyone a pay raise. If the government really doesn’t need so much, then they don’t need to take and spend so much.

Huot files bill to give county commissioners more budget management autonomy By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Rep. David Huot (D-Laconia) this week became the third member of the Belknap County Convention to file legislation intended to clarify the responsibilities of the commission and convention in preparing and managing the county budget. Differences between the three Belknap County Commissioners and the county administration on the one hand and the Republican majority of the county convention have roiled county government throughout the year. The majority of the convention has insisted that the convention can rewrite the budget proposed by the commission by adding, deleting, raising or lowering particular line item appropriations. And, in the course of managing the budget, the commission may only reallocate funds from one line to another with the approval of the Executive Committee of the convention. With equal resolve, the commissioners claim that the authority of the convention is limited to itemizing appropriations in 13 broad categories Within these categories, the commission contends it can distribute funds among different lines without the approval of the convention as long as expenditures do not exceed the total appropriations of the particular categories. Huot said yesterday that his legislation would apply to all of the 10 counties in the state, but would not override provisions of existing statutes that apply specifically to Hillsborough, Rockingham and Strafford counties. The bill will prescribe a

uniform format for county budgets, which the commissions present to the conventions in December, consisting of accounts for departments and functions. County commissions would be authorized to transfer funds between line items within the accounts without the approval of the convention, but transfers or more than $1,000 between accounts would require the approval of the Executive Committee of the convention. In addition, Huot’s bill would require that at least one representative from the minority party in the convention be seated on the Executive Committee. Throughout the controversy within the Belknap County Convention Huot has noted that that the existing law bearing on county budgeting is open to interpretation. In fact, both the commission and the convention received legal opinions upholding their respective positions and the convention was stopped short of filing suit against the commission by a single vote. Huot conceded that because the different counties operate differently within the bounds of the existing law, his bid to introduce a measure of uniformity would encounter resistance. “I’m poking a stick right in the middle of a hornet’s nest,” he remarked. Earlier both Rep. Colette Worsman (R-Meredith) who chairs the Belknap County Convention, and Rep. Tilton (R-Laconia), chairman of its executive committee, also filed bills that would enshrine their view of the convention’s authority in an statute applying only to Belknap County.

SHUTDOWN from page 2

cal underpinnings of the struggle. Democrats and most Republicans have assumed the GOP would be hurt by a shutdown, citing the impact of the last episode, in 1996. But Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said of Democrats, “I don’t think they’ve poll tested ‘we won’t negotiate. I think it’s awful for them to say that over and over again.” His words recorded on videotape, he said, “I think if we keep saying we wanted to defund it (the new health care law), we fought for that and now we’re willing to compromise on this we’re going to win this, I think.” The shutdown caused the White House to scrub a presidential trip to Asia, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics delayed its customary monthly report on joblessness as impacts of the partial shutdown spread. According to warnings by the administration and Wall Street, failure to raise the debt limit, by contrast, had the potential to destablize financial markets and inflict harm on the economy quickly. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew has said that unless Congress acts, the government will be unable to pay all its debts and will run the risk of default. He has urged lawmakers to act by Oct. 17.

and the White House for the impasse and accused them of a “my way or the highway” attitude. But Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., likened the Republican strategy to “smashing a piece of crockery with a hammer, gluing two or three bits back together today, a couple more tomorrow, and two or three more the day after that.” For all the rhetoric, there was no evident urgency about ending the partial shutdown before the weekend. The Republican-controlled House approved legislation restoring funds for federal disaster relief on a vote of 247-164. Another allowing the resumption of the Women, Infants and Children nutrition program was approved 244-164. Saturday’s agenda called for passing a bill to assure post-shutdown pay for an estimated 800,000 furloughed federal employees off the job since mid-day Tuesday, then turning off the lights on the House floor until Monday night to allow lawmakers to fly home for two days. After issuing a string of veto threats against GOP spending bills, the White House did not object to the one to assure pay for furloughed employees. There was no doubt about the politi-

After towns react with alarm, 2 state agencies decide they can start setting tax rates in October after all BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

CONCORD — After announcing on Wednesday that the process of setting municipal property tax rates would not begin until November 7, the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration (DRA) yesterday backtracked in the face of widespread concerns among local officials. We anticipated a reaction,” said Commissioner John Beardmore of DRA, “but it was broader and more intense than anticipated.” Beardmore said that in light of the reaction his department will begin setting tax rates between October 18 and 21, noting that typically the process starts in the middle of October and last year began on October 19. State Senator Andrew Hosmer (D-Laconia) said that he heard from Laconia City Manger Scott Myers and town administrators throughout his district soon after the announcement and quickly discovered that his fellow senators were fielding similar calls. Since the cash flow of cities and towns is at low ebb near the end of the year, the delay in setting the tax rates threatened to slow the process of billing and collecting the revenue required to replenish municipal coffers and fund operations for the next six months. Moreover, municipalities must pay their county apportionments in December. Counties finance a significant share of their operations by borrowing tax anticipation notes (TANs) that come due on December 31 and cannot be repaid without the revenue from the municipalities. Municipal officials feared that if the setting of tax rates were deferred until November they would be unable to print and mail tax bills in time to collect sufficient revenue to fund operations and obligations without borrowing. At the same time county officials were concerned that cities and towns could find themselves unable to pay their apportionment in time for the county to repay its borrowing. Hosmer said that there was also some concern for those who escrow their property taxes, explaining that if the bank or firm responsible for paying the taxes failed to mail the check before December 31, taxpayers’ ability to claim a deduction on their 2013 federal income tax returns could be at risk. DRA 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 dis-

tricts 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 informed the DRA that it will not complete the calculations to measure school enrollment and apportion state aid until November 7, almost three months later than in the past. Beardmore said that in response to the outcry, Virginia Barry, Commissioner of Education, agreed to provide DRA with estimated enrollments by October 11. He acknowledged that the estimates are subject to change, but described them as “reasonably accurate” and superior to any alternatives. He stressed that DOE “did nothing wrong, but was doing its best to calculate state aid in a compressed time frame.” Beardmore said that “we hope not to be in the same place next year when I hope we will have firm numbers as soon as possible.” He said that since state aid to public increased in the wake of the Claremont decisions in the 1990s, this will be the first time tax rates have been set using estimated enrollment figures. Hosmer said that he “commended commissioners Beardmore and Barry for making a quick about face and working with each other to resolve the situation.” He suggested that “the Legislature may want to take another look at the law to what if anything can be done to improve the process.” ON FIRE from page 2 shirts in an effort to help douse the flames, and the man was clearly alive as the fire spread. A police department spokesman said he was conscious and breathing at the scene. MedStar Washington Hospital Center tweeted that the man was taken there and he was in critical condition. “There was not a lot people could do because it was a gasoline fire,” Scheflen said. She said he may have said something before he acted “but it was nothing intelligible.” She said she did not see him holding any signs before he set himself ablaze and that there was another man with a tripod set up near him but did not mention if he was filming.

LFD deputy chief leaving to take a top Dept. of Safety job

LACONIA — After nine years with the Fire Department, Deputy Fire Chief Deb Pendergast has been appointed director of the Division of Fire Standards and Training and Emergency Medical Services at the New Hampshire Department of Safety. Pendergast alone among the 18 candidates for the position was nominated by Governor Maggie Hassan. She was unanimously confirmed by the Executive Council when it met last week. She will oversee both the Fire Academy, which serves as the Northeast regional training facility for Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting Personnel, and the Bureau of Emergency Medical Services. A graduate of the University of Massachusetts, where she majored in psychology, Pendergast is pursuing a master’s degree in pubic administration at the University of New Hampshire. She has

spent two decades in the fire service. 11 with the East Derry Fire Department, where she rose to the rank of lieutenant, and the last nine as deputy chief in Laconia, joining the department as the highest ranking female firefighter in the state. As deputy chief Pendergast secured more than $1.2 million in grants for the department, including most recently $642,000 from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to add four firefighters for two years. City Manager Scott Myers said that “the state’s gain will be Laconia’s loss as she is a valuable resource for our community.” The community, he noted, should be proud that “the governor thought highly enough of one our own to nominate her to this important position.” — Michael Kitch

GENERAL from page 2 “No other wars for national liberation were as fierce or caused as many losses as this war,” Giap told The Associated Press in 2005 — one of his last known interviews with foreign media on the eve of the 30th anniversary of the fall of Saigon, the former South Vietnamese capital. “But we still fought because for Vietnam, nothing is more precious than independence and freedom,” he said, repeating a famous quote by Ho Chi Minh. Giap remained sharp and well-versed in current events until he was hospitalized. Well into his 90s, he entertained world leaders at his shady colonialstyle home in Hanoi. Although widely revered in Vietnam, Giap was the nemesis of millions of South Vietnamese who fought alongside U.S. troops and fled their homeland after the war, including the many staunchly anti-commu-

nist refugees who settled in the United States. Born Aug. 25, 1911, in central Vietnam’s Quang Binh province, Giap became active in politics in the 1920s and worked as a journalist before joining the Indochinese Communist Party. He was jailed briefly in 1930 for leading anti-French protests and later earned a law degree from Hanoi University. He fled French police in 1940 and met Ho Chi Minh in southwestern China before returning to rural northern Vietnam to recruit guerrillas for the Viet Minh, a forerunner to the southern insurgency later known as the Viet Cong. During his time abroad, his wife was arrested by the French and died in prison. He later remarried and had five children. In 1944, Ho Chi Minh called on Giap to organize and lead guerrilla forces against Japanese invaders in World War II. After Japan surrendered to Allied forces the next year, the Viet Minh continued their fight for independence from France. Giap was known for his fiery temper and as a merciless strategist, but also for being a bit of a dandy. Old photos show him reviewing his troops in a white suit and snappy tie, in sharp contrast to Ho Chi Minh, clad in shorts and sandals. Giap never received any formal military training, joking that he attended the military academy “of the bush.” At Dien Bien Phu, his Viet Minh army surprised elite French forces by surrounding them. Digging miles of trenches, the Vietnamese dragged artillery over steep mountains and slowly closed in during the bloody, 56-day battle that ended with French surrender on May 7, 1954.

Man injured in tractor accident GILMANTON — Fire Chief Paul Hempel III said a local man was injured in a tractor accident while mowing a lawn yesterday afternoon. Hempel said the man was on Guinea Ridge Road around 2:30 p.m. when the call came in. He said he’s not exactly sure what happened but said the mid-sized farm tractor was not running when emergency crews arrived. He said the man was conscious and breathing. He was taken by ambulance to Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia for evaluation.

Laconia produces lots of offense but Monadnock scores lots more, 66-37 By Tim marTin


LACONIA —Monadnock Regional (Swanzey) stayed unbeaten (5-0) in NHIAA Division II football play last night by rolling past the Sachems at Bank of New Hampshire Stadium by a score of 66-37. The visiting Huskies scored two touchdowns on defense and another on a kickoff return. Laconia (2-3) tried to spread out Monadnock’s defense and move the ball with an aerial attack. The Sachems average eight to 10 pass attempts a game but threw the ball 48 times Friday night. Quarterback Matt Swormstedt completed 19 for 280 yards and two touchdowns but he was also victimized by four interceptions — one of which was returned for a pick six. “We had breakdowns in every facet of the game,” Laconia coach Craig Kozens said afterwards. “When the run wasn’t going anywhere, we tried to spread the field and roll the dice. Unfortunately the dice don’t always roll your way” Commenting on the four interceptions and fumble loss for a touchdown, Kozens said, “They took advantage of our mistakes. We just couldn’t get it going the right way. I tip my cap to them. It doesn’t get any easier for us next week (against 5-0 Plymouth).” Laconia jumped out to a quick lead — scoring first for the fourth time in five games — when Swormstedt hooked up with Kyle Chiasson for a 48 yard strike one minute into the game. Monadnock would respond with a 25 yard field goal.

After Laconia went three and out on its next possession, Monadnock did not look back, scoring on a nine play drive capped off by a 31 yard quarterback keeper down the right sideline. Next, Laconia would fumble on the 31 yard line and watch Huskies Linebacker Drew Bolewski scoop up the loose ball and trot in untouched for the first of two consecutive defensive touchdowns. Down 24-7, Laconia’s Chiasson found the end zone for his second of three touchdowns on the night when he found a hole on the right side and sprinted 40 yards to paydirt. The Huskies would return the ensuing kickoff 90 yards for six of their own. The Sachems dove down to Monadnocks 11 yard line, where the Huskies picked off Swormstedt on the three to end the threat. On the next play, trying to get out of the shadow of their own goal line, the Huskies tried to run off tackle only to be wrapped up for a safety by captains Steven Kemos and Jon Pelky. Twelve points would be as close as the Sachems would get. The first drive for Laconia of the second half looked to be a three and out when they lined up to punt on fourth and one at their own 15 yard line. Only the snap went directly to Chaisson who rambled 85 yards for the touchdown. Laconia would end up rushing for 157 yards on the evening. Swormstedt rushed for an 11 yard TD late in the fourth to cap off the scoring for Laconia. Laconia looks to rebound from the loss, when they head to Plymouth to take on the Bobcats next Saturday at 1:30.

Police say UNH assault report was a fib DURHAM (AP) — Police say a University of New Hampshire student made up her story when she reported two men assaulted her while trying to take her wallet. UNH Police Chief Paul Dean said the woman recanted her story. She originally said she was near Rudman Hall on Academic Way on Wednesday night when the men grabbed her. She said she fought off her attackers,

striking one in the face. University police officers and campus service officers increased their patrols as a result. Dean said he is aware of circumstances that would explain why the woman fabricated the incident. He said the university is reviewing its options, including bringing criminal charges. The woman has not been named.

CARTER from page 2 Carter was arrested by police in on Rte. 3 in Tilton while driving his mother’s car about three hours later. At his probable cause hearing on August 6, Det. Sgt. Joseph Ebert of the N.H. State Police testified that Carter’s mother died of 10 chop wounds to her head and body while Timothy Carter died of 23 chop wounds. Police also said Priscilla Carter had been stabbed in the face. Ebert said the N.H. State Medical Officer determined the Carters died between 10 p.m. May 23 to 2 a.m. May 24. Ebert also testified that after applying for a search warrant for the car Carter was driving, police recovered a yellow-handled ax similar to the one Shawn Carter bought at Walmart the

week before the homicides in the trunk. Police also said they recovered an atlas (map), a black duffle bag containing mens’ clothing, and Priscilla Carter’s wallet. Ebert also said police had recovered footage of Carter at the Cumberland Farms store on Court Street in Laconia just after midnight on May 24 wearing a cap that was very similar to the one he was wearing on the day he was arrested. Police said there was blood evidence recovered on one of Carter’s boots and on his cap. Carter is being defended by by Robin Wight-Davis and Eric Wolpin. He is being held without bail in the Belknap County House of Corrections.

Red Sox jump on Ray miscues & win ALD series opener, 12-2 BOSTON (AP) — One ball fell between two outfielders. Another took a bad hop off the Green Monster standings. One batter reached safely on a dropped third strike and another when the pitcher was slow to cover first. By the time it was over, the Boston Red Sox had scored five runs in the fourth inning, taking advantage of Tampa Bay’s bad luck and bad defense to overcome an early deficit and beat the Rays 12-2 on Friday in Game 1 of the AL division series. “You play 162 games, a lot of innings, a lot of pitches, a lot of runs. One thing you can guarantee in the playoffs is you’re going to see something you haven’t seen all year,” said Jonny Gomes, who doubled to tie the game and then scored from second on an infield single to give Boston the lead for good. “And we saw that right away.” Needing a 163rd game to earn a wild-card berth, the Rays won three win-or-go-home games in three different cities to reach this series. Now they need a victory in Game 2 on Saturday to tie the best-of-five series before it shifts to St. Petersburg, Fla., for Games 3 and 4. “We’ve been playing very well. We’ve not been making any mistakes. We made a bunch tonight,” Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon said. “But I’ve also learned one other thing regarding baseball: 24 hours can make a huge difference. That’s just one game, baby. That’s just one. We’ll be back tomorrow, I promise you. We’ll be ready to play. We will not be affected mentally by tonight’s game.” Jon Lester allowed three hits in 7 2-3 innings for the AL East champions, giving up solo homers to Sean Rodriguez and Ben Zobrist to spot the Rays a 2-0 lead through the top of the fourth. Tampa Bay starter Matt Moore had still not given up a hit. But Dustin Pedroia led off the bottom half with a single up the middle, and then David Ortiz hit a high fly ball that center fielder Desmond Jennings and right fielder Wil Myers converged on. The Rays rookie raised his right hand to call off Jennings but let it fall behind him and bounce off the warning track and into the bullpen for a double. “I was under the ball and I saw Des out of the corner of my eye and backed off,” Myers said. “I messed it up, and it won’t happen again. ... That play kind of gave them a spark, and a good team takes advantage of it.” With a derisive cheer of “Myers” echoing through the ballpark, Mike Napoli popped up to second base for the first out before Gomes hit a fly ball that scraped the left-field wall on the way down. Pedroia held to tag up, then scored easily with Ortiz coming in just a few steps behind him to make it 2-2. Jarrod Saltalamacchia struck out before Stephen Drew hit a slow hopper to first that James Loney fielded and flicked to Moore. But the pitcher’s foot came down a split second after Drew’s; with Moore facing the wrong way, Gomes never slowed down as he rounded third and scored without a

throw. Will Middlebrooks followed with a line drive to left that took a bad hop off the Monster where the AL East standings are posted, and it got past Rodriguez on the rebound. That allowed Drew to score and make it 4-2, while Middlebrooks went into second with a double. Jacoby Ellsbury reached on a passed ball on strike three — which would have been the third out of the inning — and Middlebrooks moved to third, where he scored on Shane Victorino’s single to make it 5-2. None of the misplays was scored an error. “That Myers play obviously gave us some momentum,” Victorino said. “All those kind of things and it became a snowball effect. Plays like that happen. You’ve got to thrive and you’ve got to get as many runs as you can when a mistake like that is made.” The Red Sox added three more runs to chase Moore in the fifth inning, when they sent nine batters to the plate — the first time in franchise history they have batted around in consecutive innings in a postseason game. In all, Moore was charged with eight runs — seven earned — on eight hits, two walks a hit batter and a wild pitch, striking out four in 4 1-3 innings. Lester struck out the first four batters he faced, but gave up homers over the Monster to Rodriguez in the second and Zobrist in the fourth. In all, he allowed three hits and three walks while striking out seven before leaving with two on and two out in the eighth. Junichi Tazawa got Myers on a line drive to right to end the eighth, and extra starter Ryan Dempster got the last three outs. Victorino had three hits and Saltalamacchia had three RBIs for the Red Sox, who tied for the best record in baseball this season a year after finishing last. Every Boston starter got a hit and scored a run, the first time a team had done that in the postseason since Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio and the Yankees in the 1936 World Series. “No longer it’s the best team, it’s the hottest team,” Gomes said. “And we obviously know Tampa is coming in hot, coming in on a roll. So it took a couple of innings to break the ice, but once Petey got that hit up the middle, I think that took a lot of questions out.” The clubs got to the ballpark for the series opener to find the tarp on the field, but the rain let up a few hours before game time and made way for a pregame ceremony to honor the victims and first-responders of the Boston Marathon bombings. With a giant “B Strong” logo mowed into the center field grass, the families of the late Krystle Campbell and Sean Collier took the field, followed by marathon volunteers, doctors and nurses, police officers and others who helped out after the April 15 explosions that killed three and wounded at least 260 more. Campbell was one of three people killed in the bombings. Collier was a MIT police officer shot during the manhunt for the bombers.

Samuel M. Smith, 71 FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Samuel Maitland Smith, beloved grandfather and father, passed away on August 30th, 2013, in Flagstaff, AZ, after a sudden decline due to complications from myelofibrosis, a bone marrow disorder. Sam was born April 27th, 1942 to Dorothy (Weeks) Smith and Forrest Asa Smith in Laconia, New Hampshire. He grew up on a farm on Morrill Street in Gilford, NH, surrounded by numerous cousins. While attending Laconia High School, the Smith house was the main gathering place for meals and games for his football teammates and so many others. He was also known for throwing parties, some of such ridiculous magnitude that they are still talked about today. He earned his bachelor’s degree from UNH. He worked briefly as a high school teacher before joining the US Army. His military service took him to Korea where he worked as a law clerk. While there he met and married Hung Nyo Yu. On his return to New Hampshire he began working for New England Telephone, first as an Outside Plant Engineer, and then as Right of Way Agent. In connection with his work, he became a Justice of the Peace. He was delighted that this allowed him to marry several of his friends. He was a member of the Telephone Pioneers of America. He was a volunteer with the United Way. He was well known for his practical jokes and problem solving. Sam loved his work, and served as Senior Right of Way Agent for New England Telephone Company/Verizon for many years ...travelling throughout the states of Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont. He will be remembered by his coworkers, as well as many happy land owners, for his integrity and sense of humor with all he had served. Sam was still telling telephone company stories in his final weeks. Sam was a devoted, although unconventional father. He instilled in his children a voracious love

of books. He drove his girls to innumerable dance practices and music lessons. Although he was never an aficionado of classical music, musical theater, or field hockey, he never missed a concert, play, performance, or sporting event... He was also known for his kindness to his daughters’ peers - whether they were punks or honors students they all got a smile, endless conversation and a mix tape. He saw one of his daughters through Dartmouth College and the other through Medical School at the University of Arizona. For the last 15 years Sam made his home with his daughter Esther and her family. He was a devoted grandfather and with his granddaughters, he expanded from reading stories to weaving them. Using his most beloved childhood memories, his granddaughters starred in his recounting. On his visits to California, board games with Grampy were major events with his grandsons. Sam had recently returned from a trip to New Hampshire to visit with his brother, Nathan, and his family. He was lucky enough to have been surrounded by friends and family for what would be a two-week farewell visit. Memories of car horns that moo, sombreros worn for mowing the lawn, frogs in space, rambling drives on the back roads of New Hampshire and so much more will be celebrated by his daughters Esther Smith and Rebecca Owens, his loving sons-in-law Eric Snider and David Owens, and grandchildren Willow and Rowan Snider and Andrew and Peter Owens. For anyone wishing to make memorial donations, please send checks to The Samuel Smith and Winnifred Page Library Fund, Attn Katherine Dormody, Library Director, 31 Potter Hill Road, Gilford, NH 03249. Please make checks payable to the Town of Gilford, and indicate they are in memory of Samuel Maitland Smith.

Roland was the proud father of three children, Bruce, Cheryl and Doreen. During retirement Roland explored the great state of NH as an avid hiker and traveler throughout the many natural and manmade attractions that the White Mountain state offers. Roland spent the last several years enjoying the wonders and beauty of his home and property. He was a collector of many things and had a love for cooking, gardening, movies and gatherings

with fellow church friends. Roland is predeceased by his parents but leaves behind many loving friends and family.

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis

competitiveness will be good for friendship and love. Too much of it will be completely detrimental. Sometimes the best sportsmanship is exhibited by the one who refuses to play the game. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You may have serious values, but you will laugh at a silly joke, too, and your partner never tires of your multidimensionality. Singles: Get out to meet new people, and someone will become smitten with you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are very accomplished, but you know better than to show off these accomplishments, preferring to keep everything on a need-to-know basis. The restraint you show will impress someone. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 5). Free, easygoing energy surrounds you. Your goals are not hard to achieve, and many will join in the effort to help you through the next seven weeks. Increase your patience and determination in January. You’ll be better for surmounting the challenge to your personal life. February begins a new chapter in love. Capricorn and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 31, 3, 39, 4 and 11.

by Chad Carpenter

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your love is unique, and the one who values this is special indeed. You’ll look for and find the right expression for the profound way you feel about this person. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There’s something to be said for not wanting to work too hard at boring tasks. Lazy people who try to find the easy way may wind up helping out the rest of the world by inventing it. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re a detective, and you’ll enjoy the satisfaction that comes from figuring out what actually happened. Truth is stranger than fiction, but lies are the strangest in that they sound logical but just don’t feel right. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Because you love someone, you are willing to ignore certain less than stellar behaviors, and you would appreciate the same courtesy. Selective attention paves the way to emotional intimacy. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You will capture people’s fascination by telling a good story, weaving a bit of fun or bringing attention to the lovelier aspects of the day. Let imagination triumph over the reality of a situation. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may be reserved in public at times, but you still sing out loud when you’re alone in the car. Someone you’re around today will bring out that freer side of you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Love is less like a wave that washes over you and more like a riptide. Resist, and you’ll only get carried away. The best way is to swim parallel to the shore, and eventually you’ll feel free again. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Maybe you’re not in the mood to do the nice thing, and that’s fine for now. Nice can be boring. You’ll do the thing that challenges people, makes them think or makes them laugh. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll meet new friends who can help you in business or pleasure. You’re not looking for a chameleon who will conform to your personality. You prefer the feisty types with their own opinions. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A little

Page 22 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, October 5, 2013

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Saturday, Oct. 5, the 278th day of 2013. There are 87 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 5, 1921, the World Series was carried on radio for the first time as Newark, N.J. station WJZ (later WABC) relayed a telephoned playby-play account of the first game from the Polo Grounds, where the New York Giants were facing the New York Yankees, to a studio announcer who repeated the information on the air. (Although the Yankees won the opener, 3-0, the Giants won the series, 5 games to 3.) On this date: In 1892, the Dalton Gang, notorious for its train robberies, was practically wiped out while attempting to rob a pair of banks in Coffeyville, Kan. In 1910, Portugal was proclaimed a republic following the abdication of King Manuel II in the face of a coup d’etat. In 1931, Clyde Pangborn and Hugh Herndon completed the first non-stop flight across the Pacific Ocean, arriving in Washington state some 41 hours after leaving Japan. In 1941, former Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis — the first Jewish member of the nation’s highest court — died in Washington at age 84. In 1947, President Harry S. Truman delivered the first televised White House address as he spoke on the world food crisis. In 1953, Earl Warren was sworn in as the 14th chief justice of the United States, succeeding Fred M. Vinson. In 1962, The Beatles’ first hit recording, “Love Me Do,” was released in the United Kingdom by Parlophone Records. The first James Bond theatrical feature, “Dr. No” starring Sean Connery as Agent 007, premiered in London. In 1969, the British TV comedy program “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” made its debut on BBC 1. In 1970, British trade commissioner James Richard Cross was kidnapped in Canada by militant Quebec separatists; he was released the following December. In 1981, President Ronald Reagan signed a resolution granting honorary American citizenship to Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg, credited with saving thousands of Hungarians, most of them Jews, from the Nazis during World War II. In 1990, a jury in Cincinnati acquitted an art gallery and its director of obscenity charges stemming from an exhibit of sexually graphic photographs by the late Robert Mapplethorpe. In 2001, tabloid photo editor Robert Stevens died from inhaled anthrax, the first of a series of anthrax cases in Florida, New York, New Jersey and Washington. Five years ago: Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin defended her claim that Barack Obama “pals around with terrorists,” referring to his association on a charity board a few years earlier with 1960s radical Bill Ayers. Obama accused John McCain’s campaign of trying to distract votes with “smears” rather than talking about substance. One year ago: A month before the presidential election, unemployment fell to its lowest level, 7.8 percent, since President Barack Obama took office; some Republicans questioned whether the numbers had been manipulated.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, October 5, 2013— Page 23


Dear Annie: I am devastated. I just found out that my baby sister, as executor of my older sister’s estate, sold the family house and possessions without discussing this with family or other beneficiaries. There is nothing we can do to recover the assets unless we initiate legal action to stop her self-serving behavior, and I don’t want to do that. We know she also has mixed personal and estate financial matters. She seems to be on a real power trip. She isn’t willing to discuss the issue. I do not want this horrible experience to ruin our family relationships, but my other sisters and I are shocked and furious about this betrayal. Do you have any advice other than seeing an attorney? How can we get our sister to make amends and come to her senses? What should we do? -- So Sad in the Heartland Dear Sad: If your sister will not listen to you about the assets and continues to commingle personal and estate monies, your choice is to take legal action or let it go. Would she be more forthcoming if you and your siblings confronted her and threatened to speak to a lawyer? Is there anyone else she might listen to? Will you be able to forgive her? We know you value the relationship, but sometimes a betrayal is so sharp that it is not possible to salvage anything when all is said and done. We suggest you discuss your options with your other sisters and make a joint decision that all of you can live with. Dear Annie: My wife died two years ago, after a long illness. I recently started dating again. I went to one of those websites and began seeing a nice woman. Once I told people that I am back on the dating scene, others started giving me phone numbers of women they wanted me to call. So I started seeing another woman along with the first.

They know about each other. I told them I am not ready to settle down. I don’t want to hurt them by being dishonest. Right now, I don’t wish to marry again. They both said that is OK. Now a third woman has asked me out. The problem is, some of my friends think this is immoral and that I’ve become a “player.” But I have been upfront with these women. We all have been married before and have kids and grandkids. We are lonely adults wanting companionship. This is a new area for me, and I am not sure what to do. I have a lot of health problems and figure I have 10 good years left. I just want to enjoy them. I don’t want to marry and stick one of these women with taking care of me when I get sick. What is the proper thing to do? -- Confused Grandpa Dear Confused: As long as you are honest about your intentions and respectful to these women, and they each understand that the relationship is not exclusive or likely to lead to marriage, you are free to date whomever you wish. They are grown women and can choose to be with you or not. What your friends think is irrelevant. Dear Annie: I had to respond to “Still Hurting in Texas,” whose husband seemed unsympathetic when she thought she had a terminal illness. I could have written that. I thought I had pancreatic cancer. At first, my husband clammed up. I, too, thought he didn’t care. But after thinking about it and weighing my husband’s good and bad qualities, I did the only right thing. I sat him down, and we both talked, cried, prayed and admitted how scared we were. But we faced it together. We were blessed that the diagnosis was not cancer, but fear becomes as nothing when there is a hand to hold onto and help you through the darkness. -- MS

Community College hosting exhibit of inmate art LACONIA — Lakes Region Community College (LRCC) will host an exhibit of art works by inmates at the Belknap County Department of Corrections (DOC), created under the guidance of their art instructor, Mary Ellen Boudman. While some inmates have art experience, most do not. They receive instruction in technical skills, such as use of media and design principles, as well as the use of art as a tool for self-reflection and inner growth. “This exhibit is a great opportunity to support the

growth and change that many inmates are working towards,” said Patricia Wild, chair of the LRCC Art Department. “Art-making can be one step among many others on the road to a different life. It is important for us to recognize and encourage all artists, whether novices or masters, wherever they are.” The exhibit runs through October 11 in the Center for Arts and Technology foyer.
