Gilford police chief on paid leave By Gail OBer


GILFORD — Town officials are being tight-lipped about why Police Chief Kevin Keenan is on paid administrative leave. Town Administrator Scott Dunn said yesterday that Keenan, who has been chief for the past two years, was placed on leave after a discussion held in a non-public session. He declined to say when the nonpublic meeting was held. Keenan has been on leave since Aug. 29 When asked yesterday if anyone else in the Gilford Police Department was on administrative leave, Dunn said, “That’s a good question. Not at the moment.” When asked if Keenan still has his department-issued car, Dunn said, “All of the municipal vehicles are available for the use of on-duty personnel.” Dunn said he wouldn’t comment on whether Keenan still had his departmentissued badge and gun. Keenan earns $83,053 annually, Dunn said. Keenan was in uniform and at the most recent selectmen’s meeting on Aug. 28. Selectmen met in GILFORd page 7

Inter-Lakes to use unreserved funds for priority projects By rOGer amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

MEREDITH — The Inter-Lakes School Board last night approved the transfer of $226,924 from its fund balance for several projects it deems as key priorities, including $68,000 for 118 new interior door locks which will enable doors to be locked from inside without the use of a key. Trish Temporino, school district business administrator, said the that the new locks will address a security concern as well as

comply with fire codes. The doors will also be able to be unlocked from the inside without a key. Also approved by the board was another security related item, $21,394 for new radios with a repeater system for use in extreme emergencies which will enable both the police and fire departments to monitor communications within the school during those incidents. Temporino said the plan had originally called for installation of more security

cameras at the district’s schools but it was decided that the new communications system had a higher priority. The board also approved $65,000 for unanticipated special education placements, $37,000 for an update to the science lab, $19,000 for a underground pipe for the oil tank at Inter-Lakes High School, $10,530 for additional police coverage on Rte. 25 in front of the high school and $6,000 for human services and culinary tech tuition at see InTeR-LaKes page 6

Solar boat reaches Paris

PARIS (AP) — The world’s largest solarpowered boat has docked on the banks of the Seine River, its final port of call after a threemonth voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to study how the Gulf Stream and climate change could influence each other. The 102-foot-long (31-meter-long) Turanor PlanetSolar catamaran looks like one of Darth Vader’s TIE Fighters turned on its side. Starting from Miami in June, University of Geneva scientists sailed up the eastern seaboard of the Unites States, then across the Atlantic, taking water and air measurements that should allow them to better understand the complex interaction between the ocean and the atmosphere. The scientists focused on aerosols, fine particles emitted at the ocean’s surface that can influence climate, said Martin Beniston the expedition’s chief climatologist and head of the University of Geneva’s Institute for Environmental Sciences. “Our first surprise see next page

Syria weapons plan dogged by enforcement issues BEIRUT (AP) — A Russian plan for Syria to turn over its chemical weapons to avert Western missile strikes bogged down Tuesday when Moscow rejected U.S. and French demands for a binding U.N. resolution with “very severe consequences” for non-compliance. The surprise Russian proposal, which Syria and the United States both accepted, would put President Bashar Assad’s regime’s chemical stockpile under international control before its eventual dismantling. The initiative — also cautiously endorsed by Britain and France — appeared to offer a way out of a crisis

that raised the prospect of U.S.-led military action against Syria in retaliation for an alleged chemical weapons attack last month. But the plan ran aground as the world powers haggled over the crucial element of how to enforce it. Wary of falling into what the French foreign minister called “a trap,” Paris and Washington are pushing for a U.N. Security Council resolution to verify Syria’s disarmament. Russia, a close Assad ally and the regime’s chief patron on the international stage, dismissed France’s proposal as unacceptable. The dizzying diplomatic maneuver-

NEW DELHI (AP) — An Indian court convicted four men Tuesday in the deadly gang rape of a young woman on a moving New Delhi bus, a brutal crime that galvanized public anger over the widespread — yet widely tolerated — sexual violence faced by Indian women. As word of the verdict filtered out, protesters outside the courthouse chanted “Hang them! Hang them!” The men were convicted on all 11 counts against them, including rape and murder, and now face the possibility of hanging. The sentences are expected to be handed down Wednesday. Judge Yogesh Khanna said in his verdict that the men, who tricked the 23-year-old

rape victim and a male friend of hers into boarding the bus they were driving, had committed “murder of a helpless person.” The parents of the woman, who cannot be identified under Indian law, had tears in their eyes as the verdicts were read. The mother, wearing a pink sari, sat just a few feet from the convicted men in a tiny courtroom jammed with lawyers, police and reporters. The hearing lasted only a few minutes, and the four men were quickly led from the courtroom by policemen after the verdicts were read. Speaking before the convictions, the father of the victim called for the four to be executed.

ing threatened what had been growing momentum toward a plan that would allow President Barack Obama to back away from military action. Domestic support for a strike is uncertain in the United States, even as Obama seeks Congress’ backing for action — and there has been little international appetite to join forces against Assad. Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem said early Tuesday during a trip to Moscow that Damascus “agreed to the Russian initiative as it should thwart the U.S. aggression against our country.” see SYRIA page 10

Those batches came the infection — the first since August 2012. from Kensington, Nashua, New Castle, Pelham, CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A mother who was told she can no longer pray on the steps of her children’s high school in New Hampshire has returned, but is praying in silence. Lizarda Urena of Concord had been praying near Concord High School for the protection of the students. In February, she started reciting Bible passages on the school’s steps for about 15 minutes daily after police responded to a report of bullets found in a toilet. After the district got questions and complaints, the principal told her she couldn’t pray on campus. The Alliance Defending Freedom, conservative Christian group that advocates for religious rights, is providing legal services to Urena. Attorney Matthew Sharp told the Concord Monitor ( it appears the issue has been resolved. But school administrators haven’t made a definitive decision. Chris Rath, district superintendent, said staff will monitor Urena’s actions on a daily basis to see if they are in line with campus visitor and religious policies. “We continue to work with her on a regular basis about how she can come and go from the high school in ways that respect both her ideas and our ideas,” Rath said.

Wright, who also drank bleach, was found unconscious. Police say that after she regained consciousness, she said she was trying to kill herself and her children. Wright’s lawyer has said his client was suffering from untreated or undiagnosed mental illness.

LETTERS How does any youth sports league amass $10,000 to donate? To The Daily Sun, I write to thank David Huot for his kind words — all true — regarding a very good man — Rep. Bob Kingsbury. We need to let people know while we are breathing that we find something that should be said now, not later. So Dave Huot, let me say: “You come from good stock” (Mom and Dad). And then, there is your humor! I wanted to just let it go, but the letter on Tuesday from Joe Adrignola (another good guy) gives me reason to speak out in support of his letter. The new facility for football and other sports is a wonderful addition to our community. Not the school board, not the coaches, and not a youth football team. The new facility belongs to all Laconians, and especially those who pay property taxes in Laconia. I believe a wrong has taken place regarding who has the concession stand at Sachem games. Can’t we all remember the “shack” with members of Key Club and Kiwanis Club working to make a halftime snack available to all fans. I will be direct. Why the secrecy of who would be operating the concession at high school football games? Where is the loyalty to the Key/ Kiwanis Clubs? Kiwanians do a lot for

our community, such as sponsor youth teams in different sports. I invite you to Google Laconia Kiwanis charity work. You will find it is a story of the Roger Ballantyne Memorial MC Ride for charity.Roger was a member of Kiwanis for 30 years. I know he and Jim Fortier were always in the shack. When you read the number of charities Kiwanis is involved in, you, with a heart, will ask, why were they kicked out of the shack for LHS home games? Is this truly about money? School gets $10,000 from the Laconia youth football group that has that kind of money laying around, and that gets them the Friday night concession, and to heck with the Kiwanis and their good work? By the way, as president of Lou Athanas Youth Basketball League for 10 years, we kept just enough money in bank to begin the following season with new basketballs. How does any league amass $10,000 dollars in the bank to donate? That money came from people who donated to the league. Next year I will not purchase two Sachems cards with great deals from local businesses, and instead donate the money to the Kiwanis Club, with a little extra. Niel Young Laconia

Many sources of factual information on health of Social Security, etc. To The Daily Sun, In the September 4 edition of The Laconia Daily Sun, Tony Boutin issued another of his ideological diatribes on what he calls “Social Welfare” programs. He asserts that Social Security, Medicare and Disability Insurance (part of Social Security) are all insolvent. This assertion is simply not true and is intended to alarm those who either do or will receive benefits from them. The Social Security and Medicare Trustees Report is available on-line ( trsum/) to anyone who prefers to have factual information about their current status and future challenges. An easyto-read summary of Social Security and Medicare (2012) can be found on the State Committee on Aging web site at http:// These programs do indeed face significant challenges which Congress must address but it is not helpful to have purposeful disinformation propagated about these programs by those who have ideological objections to their very existence. In the same letter, Mr. Boutin attacks

the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), using much of the same level of hateful disinformation being propagated by right-wing opponents of the existence of this program. To be sure, there are significant challenges associated with the ACA but those attacking its existence have apparently forgotten that nearly everyone who evaluated the health care needs of the United States (from across the political spectrum) have agreed that the system prior to the enactment of the ACA was unsustainable. Again, there are many sources of factual information available on the web about the ACA. A good place to start is the Congressional Budget Office’s Director’s blog found at or the AARP fact sheets found at org/health/health-care-reform/health_ reform_factsheets/. If Mr. Boutin and others desire repeal of the Affordable Care Act, what do they constructively suggest in its place? (Silence!) Russ Armstrong (Formerly of Gilford) Peterborough

LETTERS 4 people who died in Benghazi were murdered, it wasn’t war To The Editor, Henry Osmer, in his last jumble of words, took me to task for my numbers pertaining to the country’s debt. Henry, the national debt when G.W. Bush took office was $5.73 trillion and it increased by $4.9 million during his eight years. in office. Obama has been in office for four years and nine months., not six years, as you stated, and in that four years and nine months, the national debt has increased by over $6 trillion and is still climbing. I have to say that math must not be one of your strong suits. I also have to remind you that we were at war during the majority of Bush’s eight years in office. Think back Henry, Sept. 11, 2001. Do you remember what happened on that day? So to use war as the reason for Obama’s increased spending is a little hypocritical, don’t you think? People that died during war time, including collaterals, are deemed killed because we are at war. Other than war time, when someone dies at the hands of another it is deemed murder because it is an illegal act. The people that died in the Benghazi attack were murdered because we weren’t in a legitimate war with their attackers. I hope that clears that up for Henry. The scandal about Benghazi is

the fact that Obama’s gunslingers went on numerous news programs after the attack and proclaimed that the attack was the result of a negative to Islam video that was on the www prior to the attack when it was proven that the Obama administration knew it was an attack by jihadists. Obama himself stated it was the video that caused the attack and Hillary Clinton, who at that time was Sec. of State, while being questioned about the murders of four Americans at a congressional hearing, one our of whom was our ambassador answered “at this time what difference does it make?” The military was ready and willing to go in with whatever aid they could give to the ambassador and the three navy seals who died during the attack but were told to stand down by their higher ups. Henry, that’s what makes it a scandal, one of the Obama administration’s many, and if that isn’t enough do a little of your own research and you’ll find more. This will be my last response to Mr. Hosmer’s letters because, and I’m using some of Winston Churchill’s words here, I feel it is unfair and even a little mean to continue in a battle of wits with an unarmed man. Dave Schwotzer Meredith

Early Childhood Development is about preparing for success To The Daily Sun, I thank all of you who have spoken to me about my letters. This one is about a serious matter that the far right and far left should all agree upon. Early Child Development is about preparing babies from birth to succeed in their education and lives. Public education in this country is not able to produce educated graduates. Charter schools may do better; that is an open question. Here is the answer: parents must be shown how to prepare their baby from birth to start in kindergarten at the level of children from educated privileged families. Kindergarten teachers have told me that they can tell, with fair accuracy, on the day they enter how a child will do in life. Every educator knows the value of these programs. They make their jobs more productive in many ways. Every grade school teacher knows how much time is spent working with

discipline and failing students. The schools would not have as many drop outs. Their overall school performance would drastically improve. The second equally important component of ECD is the health of the children. Neglected, sick, abused and hungry children can only learn to repeat what they are exposed to from birth. The Family Resource Center of Lakes Region Community Services, and the United Way have programs which are trying to address the things I talk about above. Unfortunately public funding has been reduced and funneled to other places. (I will not get into that here.) A program that I am working to start in a village near NYC will require that I raise large amounts of money to get started. I am seeing more and more very wealthy individuals and foundations recognizing the need to invest in ECD. see next page

LETTERS Waiting for evidence of link between chiropractic & immune system To The Daily Sun, After Reading Dr. Moneysmith’s and Dr. Mills’ ad asking us to help celebrate the birthday of the Chiropractic profession, it led me to wonder if these two “doctors” slept through or skipped anatomy class the day hearing was discussed. If they had been present they would have heard that Cranial Nerve #8 is responsible for hearing. Any eighth grader could figure that out. A cranial nerve comes from the brain itself, hence the name, it does not come from the spinal cord. Thinking that one can restore hearing by manipulating the cervical spine is just plain medically ignorant. But why let facts get in the way of a good story. But this is what D.D. Palmer, the father of chirproactic medicine claimed he did. There is no independent verification of this, all we have is D.D. Palmer’s claim. Who was D.D. Palmer, and why should anyone believe him? In the words of a newspaper reporter, The Davenport Leader, the local paper where D.D. Palmer had established a magnetic healing practice and took to calling himself “ doctor” had this to say about him: “ A crank on magnetism has a crazy notion that he can cure the sick and crippled with his magnetic hands. His victims are the weak-minded, ignorant and superstitious , those foolish people who have been sick for years and have become tired of the regular physician and want health by the short-cut method, he has certainly profited by the ignorance of his victims”. My theory is that the janitor in question was so scared to have that crazy old man twisting and pushing on his neck that he claimed that he could hear just to get him to stop. He probable innately knew that having someone twist and crank on his neck was not a good idea. Kevin Sorba, the actor who played Hercules on TV in the 90s, suffered a stroke after his chiropractor manipulated his neck. from preceding page The Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis made a study years ago which showed in dollars how much such a program can save the schools and society in general. These cost vs returns studies took into account many factors such as the wasted time of teachers trying to help failing pupils, while shorting their primary job of teaching the curriculum.

This is my theory which is yours for free. Unlike Dr. Mills, who wants you to pay $27 dollars for her theory. She wants you to be checked for subluxations, but according to the GCC a regulatory body in England who made a very strong statement regarding subluxations and chiropractic claims in 2010: “The chiropractic vertebral subluxation complex is a historical concept but it remains a theoretical model. It is not supported by any clinical evidence that would allow claims to be made that it is the cause of disease or health concerns” What we should celebrate are the advances in medicine in the last 118 years based on good scientific studies not on stories from charlatans like D.D. Palmer. Like my favorite medical breakthrough, vaccinations. I took a class offered through my church years ago to study the scriptures. The first statement from the Catholic nun who was running the program was “all knowledge comes from God”. Flash forward to last week when a church in Texas had to call members in for a mass vaccination program after 15-25 members came down with measles. The church had preached that vaccinations were not needed. I pictured GOD sitting up there looking down on this church, shaking his head and saying to himself, “what is wrong with those people , I gave them the knowledge “. I still have my $200 challenge out there. Any one who can show me the research from Dr. Pero that “Doctors” Moneysmith and Mills claim in their ad, that, “chiropractic manipulations can increase the immune system”, the money is theirs. “Doctors Moneysmith and Mills have been surprisingly silent on this issue when challenged . One thing is certain however , these “Doctors” of chiropractic medicine are following closely in D.D. Palmer’s footsteps. Mirno Pasquali PA C Laconia went on to the cost of welfare, and the criminal justice system. The graduates of schools go on to get jobs, pay taxes, and raise, wanted, responsible children.

Belmont committee eyes Gale School as possible site for town library

BOOK ON-LINE www.lrairportshuttle. com


BELMONT — Could the Gale School be used as a the town library? The ad hoc Save the Gale School Committee thinks so, and last night two of its members broached the subject with the Shaker Regional School Board. Conservation Commission member Ken Knowlton and former School Board Chair Pret Tuthill think the 119-year-old building, which has been idle since the 1980s, can be moved from its current spot behind the Belmont Middle School and placed on the empty lot on the corner of Memorial and School streets. A recent evaluation by Omega Structural Engineers, PLLC said the building and, with the exception of its foundation, is sound. Tuthill said he knows it would need lead and possible asbestos remediation, but using it is still an option. The recent study was paid for by the Save the Gale School fund. According to Tuthill, the Library Trustees think the Belmont Library needs more room. He said there is “hundreds of thousands of dollars” in the Duffy Fund — a fund established in 1927 by Walter and George Duffy, who were the owners of the Belmont Hosiery Mill. The Duffys built the current library and donated 5,000 books to its initial collection. Tuthill said until recently the Library Trustees were under the impression that the money could only be spent on the existing building, but he said he has since learned differently. “It is our contention that the money is available,” Tuthill said, noting the money left over from the 1927 project has “swollen to quite a bit of money.” He said Diane Marden of the Bel-

mont Historical Society was making a similar presentation to the Belmont Library Trustees at their meeting last night. Tuthill also said Shaker Regional Building and Grounds Director Doug Ellis got an estimate yesterday of $40,000 to tear down the Gale School — a number that doesn’t include any lead paint or asbestos remediation. “We could offer to buy it from you for and set it on our own foundation,” Tuthill said, suggesting the school district could contribute the $40,000 to the move rather than spend it in demolition. Tuthill said if the library doesn’t want the old school, maybe the town would. He also said that he and Knowlton think the town of Belmont is looking to use the Belmont Mill someday as town offices, a which point the senior center and the daycare center would need a new home. Should the old Gale School be available and the library doesn’t want it, Tuthill said those two uses could qualify the for some state or federal community development grants. “Can you live with it on Concord Street and with public access?” asked Tuthill, saying he didn’t expect an answer right away. Nor did he get one. Shaker School Board Chair Heidi Hutchinson asked Ellis how current the estimate was to tear it down but after that, the board went on to its other business. Library Trustee Chair Mary Louise Charnley said Marden made her presentation to the trustees last night. She said they took no action, but plan to discuss the proposal in a future meeting. “I don’t know what we’re going to do,” Charnley said. “We’re just digging through the paperwork.”

Readers are wondering why Tuesday’s paper was so late and why pages 25 through 28 were in the paper twice. There is a single reason. The Daily Sun in printed at a large commercial printing plant at the Pease Tradeport in Portsmouth. The printer suffered a major press breakdown on Monday night that not only delayed publication by a number of hours but also

made it impossible to print 28 pages, the number we had specified. Instead, the printers to had adjust on the fly and decided to increase our page count to 32 pages in order to avoid having to use the damaged part of the press. At that late hour the only thing they could do is repeat four pages we had already sent them or leave the extra four pages blank.

INTER-LAKES from page one Huot Center in Laconia. Temporino explained that prior to the transfers the anticipated fund balance was approximately $476,924, the result of excess revenues of $108,477 and unexpended funds of $368,447. The transfers will reduce the fund balance to $250,000 and the district intends to place $30,000 into an existing playground expendable trust, leaving $220,000 to be used to reduce the tax assessment for 2013. The board also learned that it will be receiving additional funds from the Local Government Center in the form of credits for future health insur-

ance premiums, which will reduce the amount the district will need to raise in the future. Superintendent Mary Ellen Ormond said that the district chose to take the funds as credits because it if had taken cash it would not have been able to reimburse current teachers and retirees out of those funds. Temporino said that the district received a $111,000 credit for 2011, of which $17,000 in credits of which went to employees and retirees and $94,000 to the school district. Next month it will receive a $275,000 credit with $240,000 going to the district and see next page

Diesel leak quickly contained at Belmont Elementary School yesterday BELMONT — Fire and Shaker Regional School District officials said a diesel leak from a school bus temporarily created a hazardous situation at the elementary school at 12:52 p.m. yesterday. According to Lt. Fred Greene and Superintendent Maria Dreyer, the spill came from a broken fuel line on a school bus, but fire officials were able to contain the fuel before any of it ran into the storm drains. Dreyer said none of the children

were in any danger, and the hazardous material drills that the school, the Fire Department and the Police Department routinely practice really paid off yesterday. “The fire department was very supportive and the state (Department of Environmental Services) was right there,” Dreyer said, adding the police directed traffic. She said the spill was completely contained by fire officials. — Gail Ober

PRIMARY from page one office, was eliminated. Bownes polled 39 votes, Beaudoin 20 votes and Templeton 14, as a mere 73 of of the ward’s 1,446 registered voters cast ballots for city councilor. “I, like everyone else today, was disappointed by the low turnout,” Engler said. “Everyone I spoke with questioned the value of the primary election and no one thought it was a good idea.” “I want to thank Bob Luther for his many years of service as a city councilor and his continued representation of the city in the New Hampshire House of Representatives,” Engler continued. “I am looking forward to the campaign this fall and to some joint appearances with Mr. Mitchell in the coming weeks.” “Obviously I am encouraged to get nearly two-thirds of the vote,” he said. “Very encouraged and grateful to all those who supported my candidacy.” Mitchell, a teaching assistant at Spaulding Youth Center, said, “The numbers show I have a lot of work to do, but I’m still excited. My goal was not to finish third, and I’m right where I want to be.” Although he cautioned against reading too much into the low turnout, he said, “Mr. Engler is still 66-percent better (off) than I am. I need to keep getting out there and letting people know my message.” Engler, the president of the Laconia Daily Sun, carried five of the six wards by comfortable margins. He carried Ward 3, where he resides, with 91 of

the 122 votes cast and captured 72 of 94 votes cast in Ward 1 while polling more than half the vote in Wards 2, 4 and 6. Mitchell ran strongest in Ward 5, where only 47 ballots were cast — the fewest of any ward — narrowing Engler’s margin to six votes, 22 to 16. Only 548 of the 9,619 registered voters, or 6 percent, in the city cast ballots. Curiously the most votes were cast in an uncontested primary in Ward 6, where both incumbent Armand Bolduc, bidding for his 16th consecutive term on the council, and challenger Tony Felch, who lost his first bid to oust Bolduc in 2011, are both well known among voters. Together they polled 124 votes of the 126 ballots, four more than the 122 cast in Ward 3. Bolduc topped Felch by 84 to 40. “I’ve got work to do,” Felch said. “Signs will up in October and I’ll be going door-to-door, getting name recognition.” “You can’t sit around and do nothing,” said Bolduc. “I’ll be getting out and talking to people, putting up signs.” Incumbent city councilors Ava Doyle in Ward 1, Henry Lipman in Ward 3, Brenda Baer in Ward 4 and Bob Hamel in Ward 5 all are unopposed. In the eight primary elections between 1997 and 2011 voter turnout has ranged from a high of 18 percent in 2001 to a low of 3 percent in 2011, with the average being 9 percent. The cost of this year’s primary election was approximately $10,000, or $18.25 per vote.

GILFORD from page one non-public session on Aug. 28 from 6 p.m. until 7 p.m. when they convened the regular portion of the meeting. After the regular meeting, selectmen re-entered a non-public session that draft minutes say ended at 8:40 p.m. Reasons for the non-public session were given as protecting the reputation of someone other than a board member and consideration of the pur-

chase, sale or lease of real estate. Minutes of both non-public sessions were sealed by a unanimous vote of the board. Dunn said Keenan became a Gilford Police Officer on Nov. 24, 1994, and was named chief on Oct. 2, 2011. Prior to joining the Gilford Police, Keenan was a N.H. Marine Patrol Officer. Dunn said yesterday that Lt. James see next page

from preceding page credits amounting $35,000 to teachers and retirees. The board spent nearly an hour discussing a proposal by Sandwich Central School Principal John Hansen to use an on-line Spanish teaching program from Middlebury College’s Language School at Sandwich Central School. Hansen said that over the last five years he has hired three different Spanish teachers for the one-day a week Spanish classes for grades 1-6 at the school and has not yet been able to find

a Spanish teacher for this school year. Board member Carol Baggaley said that she would like to have parents and board members see a demonstration of the program before signing on to it. Several parents from Sandwich expressed reservations about learning Spanish through a computer, rather than from a person, and Hansen said that he hoped to have Inter-Lakes High School Spanish students visit the school to assist in instruction. He planned to arrange a session at which the material can be previewed in the near future.

Sanbornton library director Cab Vinton leaving to take job in Plaistow

raise 10 percent of the costs of the renovation, it now needed to raise two and a half times more money because the town’s contribution stayed the same. “For a small town, this community really stepped up,” Vinton said.

He said the upstairs has mobile shelving handmade by volunteers that can be rolled around the room to configure it as needed. For example, Vinton said that if all the shelves are moved to one side, there is space for 100 people to sit. The library has been used for a variety of meetings including a couple of candidates’ nights. Recently, N.H. author and humorist Rebecca Rule spoke at the Library and Vinton said all they had to do was roll the carts to one side and set up chairs for the lecture. Vinton has also taken the library into the modern era by installing four public computers. He also wanted to thank Robert and Patricia Risley for donating six laptops in memory of their son. When Vinton first came to the library it was still using card catalogs. “We skipped a century when in 2009 we became completely computerized,” he said. But it’s the numbers that tell the story of the Sanbornton Public Library — over the past five years visits to the institution have increased by 25 percent while the checkout of items has risen 80 percent. “We try to cater to everyone in Sanbornton — from babies to the older residents,” Vinton said. As to his impending move, he said he is excited and nostalgic at the same time. Plaistow, he said, has a library that is about 2-to-4 times the size of the Sanbornton Library and represents a challenge to him professionally as its new director. “But, I’m really going to miss Sanbornton,” he said. “I’ve made some wonderful friends here.” Vinton’s last day in September 13. He said Mary Algren, a Sanbornton resident and the retired director of the Hall Memorial Library that serves Tilton and Northfield will be leading the committee searching for his replacement.

INDIA from page 2 “For what happened with her, these brutes must be hanged,” he told reporters as he left home for the courthouse. “Nothing but the death penalty is acceptable to us.” Protesters called the Dec. 16 attack a wake-up call for India, where women have long talked quietly of enduring everything from sexual comments to public groping to rape, but where they would often face blame themselves if they complained publicly. “Every girl at any age experiences this — harassment or rape. We don’t feel safe,” said law school

graduate Rabia Pathania. “That’s why we’re here. We want this case to be an example for every other case that has been filed and will be filed.” Lawyers for the men have insisted they were tortured — a common occurrence in India’s chaotic criminal justice system — and that confessions, which were later retracted, were coerced. A.P. Singh, who at times has worked as a lawyer for all the men, said they were innocent. “These accused have been framed simply to please the public,” he told reporters. “This is not a fair trial.” see next page

SANBORNTON — Eight-year veteran library director Cab Vinton will be departing the Public Library here to take over as the director of the Plaistow Public Library in the southeast corner of the state. Vinton started his work with the library as a trustee in 2005 and became the librarian in September of 2006, after serving as interim director for a period of time. “Hey you have a library degree,” Vinton said he was told by the Library Trustees. Among Vinton’s accomplishments, he said Tuesday he is the most proud of completing the physical expansion of the local library. He said the money for Cab Vinton (Courtesy photo) the expansion and renovation to the second floor was approved sometime in the 1990s. Because of various “snags” he said the groundbreaking didn’t take place until 2005. But by that time, the costs of the renovation had soared and instead of the library needing to privately from preceding page Leach will be acting chief in Keenan’s absence. Dunn said he cannot comment on whether or not there are any investigations regarding Keenan or how long Keenan will be on paid administrative leave. Attempts to reach Keenan were unsuccessful. Selectmen Chairman Kevin Hayes was unavailable for comment and Selectman Gus Benavides didn’t return the Sun’s phone calls. Selectman John T. O’Brien declined to comment.

Gilford Police investigating thefts from vehicles parked at trail head GILFORD — Police are looking for a man in connection to a string of thefts from vehicles parked in the lot for Lockes Hill Trail. The man, whom police are seeking for questioning, is described as white, in his late 20s or early 30s, tattooed on both of his arms and driving a dark blue Toyota Camry. Over the past two weeks, according to police, nine incidents have

been reported of thefts from vehicles parked in the Lockes Hill Trail lot. Several of the vehicles had been vandalized in order to gain entry. Police urge anyone parking in that are to not leave valuables in their vehicle and to report suspicious activity to police. Anyone with information regarding these thefts is asked to contact Officer Adam VanSteensburg at (603) 527-4737.

from preceding page The men were identified by the young woman’s friend, and police say they could be seen on security cameras near the bus. The men, most of them from a crowded New Delhi neighborhood of hand-made brick shanties filled by migrants from poor rural villages, were joy-riding around the city in an off-duty bus when police say they came across the woman and her friend waiting at a bus top. The pair — by most accounts they were not romantically involved — were heading home after an evening showing of “Life of Pi” at a high-end mall just a short walk from the courthouse where Tuesday’s verdict was read. It wasn’t late. It wasn’t a bad neighborhood. The bus, by all appearances, was just a way for the two to get home. Instead, the attackers beat the friend into submission, held down the woman and repeatedly raped her. They penetrated her with a metal rod, causing severe internal injuries that led to her death two weeks later. The woman, who was from another poor migrant family, had recently finished her exams for a physiotherapy degree. Her father earned a little over $200 a month as an airport baggage handler. She was, the family hoped, their path to the bottom rungs of India’s growing middle class. The defendants also came from poor and ill-educated families. One, Mukesh Singh, occasionally drove the bus and cleaned it. Another, Vinay Sharma, was a 20-year-old assistant at a gym and the only one to graduate from high school. Akshay Thakur,

28, occasionally worked as a driver’s helper on the bus. Pawan Gupta, 19, was a fruit seller. With them were two other men. Police say Ram Singh, 33, hanged himself in prison, though his family insists he was murdered. He was the brother of Mukesh Singh, who was convicted Tuesday. Another man — an 18-yearold who was a juvenile at the time of the attack and cannot be identified under Indian law — was convicted in August and will serve the maximum sentence, three years in a reform home. Facing public protests and political pressure after the attack, the government reformed some of its antiquated laws on sexual violence, creating fasttrack courts to avoid the painfully long rape trials that can easily last over a decade. The trial of the four men, which took about seven months, was astonishingly fast by Indian standards. The men can appeal their convictions. While many activists heralded the changes that came with the case — more media reporting on sexual violence, education for police in how to treat rape victims — they note that women remain widely seen as second-class citizens in India. Girls get less medical care and less education than boys, studies show. Millions of female fetuses are statistically “missing” because of illegal sex-selective abortions. Victims of sexual assault, meanwhile, often find themselves blamed by their families and police, who deride them for inviting attacks. Activists say most rapes are simply kept secret, even from authorities, so that the woman and her family are not seen as tainted.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Clay Buchholz allowed three hits over five innings in his first start since early June and the AL East-leading Boston Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 2-0 on Tuesday night. Buchholz (10-0), sidelined by a strained neck, hadn’t pitched in the majors since beating the Los Angeles Angels on June 8. The right-hander, who made three rehab starts in the minors, struck out Jose Molina with two on to end the second. Jonny Gomes and Jarrod Saltalamacchia both drove in a run for the Red Sox, who extended their lead over second-place Tampa Bay to 8 1/2 games in the East. Craig Breslow, Junichi Tazawa and Koji Uehara finished a four-hitter. Uehara got the final four outs for his 19th save. Reigning AL Cy Young Award winner David Price (8-8) lost his third straight start despite giving up just two runs and three hits in eight innings. The lefthander struck out nine. The Rays, 4-12 since August 25, are leading the race for the second AL wild-card spot. Price retired 12 in a row before Mike Napoli doubled off the center field fence to open the fifth. Gomes followed with a single that drove in Napoli to put the Red Sox up 1-0. Gomes, who has 15 RBIs over his

last 17 games, scored to make it 2-0 later in the fifth on a sacrifice fly by Saltalamacchia that required a leaping catch near the wall by center fielder Desmond Jennings. Saltalamacchia threw out a runner attempting to steal second in both the third and fourth innings. Uehara replaced Tazawa after Yunel Escobar hit a two-out double in the eighth. The Red Sox closer ended the threat by getting a foul popup from Wil Myers. The right-hander has retired the last 31 batters he has faced. NOTES: The announced crowd was 18,605. Tampa Bay started the day with the majors lowest home attendance average at 18,719. ... Boston 2B Dustin Pedroia hit leadoff for the first time this season and singled in four at-bats. Manager John Farrell didn’t rule out Pedroia staying in the role until OF Jacoby Ellsbury returns from a foot injury. ... Ellsbury missed his fourth consecutive game and will not resume baseball activites for at least the next few days. ... Tampa Bay reliever Jesse Crain (strained right shoulder) had his second bullpen session and could throw batting practice within the next week. ...The Red Sox reinstated Buchholz from the 60-day disabled list and designated RHP Jose De La Torre for assignment.

SYRIA from page 2 Before departing Moscow in the evening, al-Moallem told Lebanon’s AlMayadeen TV that Syria would place its chemical weapons locations in the hands of representatives of Russia, other unspecified countries and the United Nations. Syria will also declare the chemical arsenal it long denied having, stop producing such weapons and sign conventions against them. Mindful that Damascus could only be seeking to avoid Western military strikes, France said it would put forward a draft resolution under Chapter 7 of the U.N. charter, making it enforceable with military action. French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said the French resolution would demand that Syria open its chemical weapons program to inspection, place it under international control, and ultimately dismantle it. A violation of that commitment, he said, would carry “very serious consequences.” The resolution would condemn the Aug. 21 attack and bring those responsible to justice, he said. “We do not want this to be used as a diversion,” Fabius said. “It is by accepting these precise conditions that we will judge the credibility of the intentions expressed yesterday.” Obama threw his support behind the French resolution and discussed the matter with French President Francois Hollande and British Prime Minister David Cameron. At the same time, he continued to push his original plan to win congressional authorization for U.S. airstrikes against Assad’s regime in case the diplomatic efforts fail. Obama was to address the nation from the White House on Tuesday night. The prospect of a deal that could be enforced militarily met swift opposition

from Russia, which has provided economic, military and diplomatic support to Assad throughout the 2½-year conflict. President Vladimir Putin said the plan can only work if “the American side and those who support the U.S.A, in this sense, reject the use of force.” Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told his French counterpart that it is unacceptable for the resolution to cite Chapter 7, the U.N. resolution authorizing force, his ministry said in a statement. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, in turn, said the U.S. rejects a Russian suggestion that the U.N. endorsement come in the form of a non-binding statement from the Security Council president. The U.S. has to have a full resolution — one that entails “consequences if games are played and somebody tries to undermine this,” he said. Obama is sending Kerry to Geneva to discuss the issue with Russia’s foreign minister, a State Department official said. The two are to meet Thursday. The official was not authorized to discuss the mission publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. The Russian Foreign Ministry said in statement that Lavrov and Kerry spoke by telephone and the two “agreed to continue contacts, including the possibility of holding a personal meeting in the coming days.” The U.S. and its allies have insisted Assad must be punished for last month’s chemical weapons attack outside Damascus. The Obama administration, France and others blame the regime, but Damascus says rebels — not its forces — were behind the attack. The U.S. has said more than 1,400 Syrians died; even conservative estimates from international organizations put the toll at several hundred.

80s band Rubix Kube at LHS Friday night LACONIA — Billed as ‘’the Galaxy’s Most Original ‘80s Tribute Band’’, Rubix Kube will be at Laconia High School Friday night at 8 p.m. to present a free Putnam Fund concert. The group is led by a by a male and female dynamic duo of karma chameleons, able to transform in the-blinkof-an-eye into the voice and character of any 1980s icon.

NSA from page 2 National Security Agency doesn’t fully know how to properly use it: Officials told a judge in 2009 that the system is so large and complicated that “there was no single person who had a complete technical understanding” of it. The documents, which the Obama administration was compelled to release as part of a lawsuit by a civil liberties group, show that National Security Agency analysts routinely exceeded their mission to track only phone numbers with reasonable connections to terrorism. Officials said that the complexity of the computer system — and a misunderstanding of the laws, court orders and internal policies controlling analysts’ actions — contributed to the abuses. There’s no evidence that the NSA intentionally used its surveillance powers to spy on Americans for political purposes, a fear of many critics who recall the FBI’s intrusive surveillance of civil rights leaders and protesters in the 1960s. “The documents released today are a testament to the government’s strong commitment to detecting, correcting and reporting mistakes that occur in implementing technologically complex intelligence collection activities, and to continually improving its oversight and compliance processes,” said Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. “As demonstrated in these documents, once compliance incidents were discovered in the telephony metadata collection program, additional checks, balances and safeguards were developed to help prevent future instances of noncompliance.” The Obama administration had conceded earlier

that, when it secretly began gathering Americans’ phone and Internet records in 2006, it scooped up more domestic phone calls and emails than Congress or a court authorized. But many details of the program’s abuse were not known until Tuesday. In a sweeping violation of court-imposed surveillance rules that went on daily between 2006 and 2009, the documents show the NSA tapped the bulk telephone records and compared them with thousands of others without “reasonable, articulable suspicion,” the required legal standard. The NSA told the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court it misunderstood restrictions on accessing data once it was archived, but Judge Reggie B. Walton wrote in a March 2009 order that such an interpretation of the court’s orders “strains credulity.” He was so fed up with the government’s overreaching that he threatened to shutter the surveillance program. After discovering government officials had been accessing domestic phone records without a sufficient connection to terrorism for nearly three years, the judge said in a blistering opinion that he had “lost confidence” in officials’ ability to legally operate the program. Walton noted, for instance, that just 1,935 phone numbers out of 17,835 on a list investigators were working with in early 2009 met the legal standard. The judge ordered the NSA to conduct an “end-toend” review of its processes and policies while also ordering closer monitoring of its activities. Later in 2009, a Justice Department lawyer reported to the spy court a “likely violation” of NSA surveillance rules. The lawyer said that in some see next page

Walton wrote that he was “deeply troubled by the incidents,” which he said occurred just weeks after the NSA had performed a major review of its internal practices because of the initial problems reported earlier in the year.

energy-efficient refrigeration units, have been added to increase the store’s sustainability. The renovated store also has a fresh new look that makes shopping an even more pleasant experience.

Two Old Friends musical performance at Moultonborough library Thursday MOULTONBOROUGH — Emery Hutchins and Jim Prendergast present the performance Two Old Friends, on Thursday, September 12 at 7 p.m. at the Moultonborough Public Library. The performance represents the American experience in a real and vibrant way. It demonstrates how American music is really an amalgamation of musical styles. There are

American blues pieces juxtaposed with Irish jigs and reels, as well as “shout tunes” and plaintive ballads. Original melodies, songs and stories by the artists are part of a performance that tells the story in music of loss and renewal, despair and hope, anguish and joy that is the story of the Irish and of every other group of people who have traveled to America.

LACONIA — Friday September 13 at 8 p.m. Pitman’s Freight Room will host Mr. Nick and The Dirty Tricks: The group unites veteran musicians Nick David (a.k.a. Mr. Nick), “Lonely” Gus Carlson, Teddy B. (Bukowski) and Rick Rousseau for one of the region’s most formidable live outfits in any genre. But their hearts belong to blues. Real blues. They play elegant, stomping and swinging classics like Little Walter’s “Mellow Down Easy,” Howlin’ Wolf’s “300 Pounds of Joy” and Wynonie Harris’ “Good Morning Judge.” Their bag of originals is a mix of rhumbas, jump blues, and

boogies they’re developing for a debut album and currently taking to legions of fans in New England. “This band is a killer outfit,” says David. And that’s the truth. Everything comes together when they play: their deep mutual understanding and knowledge of blues, their originality and depth as players, and the band’s ability to put on a great show that brings people to their feet. Admission $12, doors open at 7:30 p.m. and Pitman’s is a BYOB Venue. For more information check or call 603-527-0043.

wrong to spend so much time and energy questing for new experiences? Not wrong, exactly -- more like misguided. An experience doesn’t have to be sought after. In fact, you’re having one right now. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Every relationship is different. They each have their own color and tone. Don’t be afraid of making new connections or watching your friends make new connections. One friendship cannot cheapen another. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Can a day of happiness be enough to make someone entirely happy? According to Aristotle, the answer is no. However, you could prove the philosopher wrong today. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 11). You won’t fully understand the big picture, and that’s OK. As long as you can see what’s in front of you and take the next step, you’ll do remarkable things. October brings a happy reunion. November ends a financial issue. Family expands in February. Take the advice of elders in May. Cancer and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 13, 40, 50, 47 and 25.

Get Fuzzy


ARIES (March 21-April 19). Friends ask a lot of you, but don’t feel obligated. Give what’s easy for you to give, and do as you please. Taking care of yourself and being happy will be the best thing for your friendship. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Easy and effective solutions may be right in front of you, but for some reason you may be unable to see them. So take it easy. Go slowly into the day’s events. You don’t have to decide or do anything right now. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The apple from the Garden of Eden was supposedly delicious before Eve and Adam took a bite, and poisonous thereafter. Similarly, the juicy knowledge you get at the start of the day may be tainted by day’s end. CANCER (June 22-July 22). When you get into dicey territory, you can avoid misfortune by being silent. “The talkative parrot is shut up in a cage. Other birds, without speech, fly freely about.” -- Saskya Pandita LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). People need variety and change. You are no different. No matter how much you liked an endeavor the first dozen or few hundred times you did it, eventually you’ll tire of it. Launch the search for what’s next. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You want to make a difference. Getting too deep into the minutia will burn you out before you have a chance to do any real work. Start with broad strokes, and you’ll move things along. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are part of a human chain. Your positioning does depend on the links before and after you. Understand where this chain is anchored, and you’ll know better the direction in which you need to stretch. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Sometimes you have to open your eyes to see, and other times you have to close them. Both kinds of observational opportunities will be present today. What you can’t see with your eyeballs, you’ll sense with your heart. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The Internet is rife with bizarre ideas. You’re susceptible now, so beware: If you read enough about people who want to cook in their dishwashers or grow tails, you may entertain a few strange notions, too. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Wednesday, Sept. 11, the 254th day of 2013. There are 111 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 11, 2001, America faced its worst day of terrorism. Nearly 3,000 people were killed as 19 al-Qaida members hijacked four passenger jetliners. Two planes smashed into New York’s World Trade Center, causing the twin towers to fall; one plowed into the Pentagon; and the fourth was crashed into a field in western Pennsylvania. On this date: In 1777, during the American Revolution, forces under Gen. George Washington were defeated by the British in the Battle of Brandywine. In 1814, an American fleet scored a decisive victory over the British in the Battle of Lake Champlain in the War of 1812. In 1857, the Mountain Meadows Massacre took place in present-day southern Utah as a 120-member Arkansas immigrant party was slaughtered by Mormon militiamen aided by Paiute Indians. In 1922, the British Mandate for Palestine went into effect. In 1936, Boulder Dam (now Hoover Dam) began operation as President Franklin D. Roosevelt pressed a key in Washington to signal the startup of the dam’s first hydroelectric generator. In 1941, groundbreaking took place for the Pentagon. In a speech that drew accusations of anti-Semitism, Charles A. Lindbergh told an America First rally in Des Moines, Iowa, that “the British, the Jewish and the Roosevelt administration” were pushing the United States toward war. In 1954, the Miss America pageant made its network TV debut on ABC; Miss California, Lee Meriwether, was crowned the winner. In 1962, The Beatles completed their first single for EMI, “Love Me Do” and “P.S. I Love You,” at EMI studios in London. In 1971, former Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev died at age 77. In 1972, the troubled Munich Summer Olympics ended. Northern California’s Bay Area Rapid Transit system began operations. In 1973, Chilean President Salvador Allende (ah-YEN’-day) died during a violent military coup. In 1989, the exodus of East German refugees from Hungary to West Germany began. Ten years ago: Israel issued an ominous threat to “remove” Yasser Arafat for failing to halt suicide bombings. Actor John Ritter died six days before his 55th birthday at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank, Calif. — the same hospital where he was born in 1948. Five years ago: ABC News broadcast an interview with John McCain’s running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who said she was ready to be president if called upon, but sidestepped questions on whether she had the national security credentials needed to be commander in chief. One year ago: A mob armed with guns and grenades launched a fiery nightlong attack on a U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya, killing U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. President Barack Obama and Republican rival Mitt Romney toned down the campaign rhetoric and pulled negative ads amid commemorations of the 9/11 attacks, saying it was not a day for politics.

Page 20 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, September 11, 2013


Dear Annie: I make my living by helping people with computer issues, setting up, getting rid of malware, etc. I love helping clients and truly enjoy my profession. I do an excellent job for my customers and am completely devoted to customer satisfaction. My problem lies with friends, neighbors, etc., who take advantage of my knowledge and expertise. It usually starts with a phone call or an email saying, “I just have a quick question.” These questions are not usually so quick, involving at least a half-hour and often many hours on the phone. When the problem is solved, they say “thanks” and hang up. Meanwhile, I have spent hours of my time that should have been billable. I am looking for a professional but pleasant way to handle those who don’t offer to pay me. Should I say something upfront? I don’t mind helping when it actually is a quick question: under 10 minutes. I do it all the time and am happy to do so. But the rest of this is beginning to be a financial drain, and I really need your help. -- Always Willing To Help Dear Willing: You need to let people know the situation at the time they ask. Reply, “I’m happy to help, but it is only fair to tell you that I can give you 10 minutes for free, and after that, my time will have to be billed.” If you want to offer friends and family a special discount of some kind, say so. Some people will be upset regardless, but that cannot be helped. Those who are most likely to take advantage are the same ones who take umbrage when you don’t acquiesce. Dear Annie: I have a valued, dear friend whom I really admire and enjoy talking with. However, he truly needs breath fresheners. Having a conversation with him is such a turnoff that I sometimes avoid him. I know he reads your column every day. I’ve thought of

hanging a bottle of Scope on his door but would hate to be caught. What should I do? This is becoming a serious problem. -- A Friend Who Needs an Assist Dear Friend: When issues such as bad breath or body odor occur with good friends or close family, it is a kindness to tell them. Yes, it is difficult and can be embarrassing, but consider the alternative -- you are allowing others to avoid or insult someone you care about. Take your friend aside privately. Ask whether he’s seen his dentist or physician lately. Tell him that breath odors are often the result of physical or dental problems that can be resolved and you thought he’d want to know. Then move on to another subject. Dear Annie: “Feeling Exploited” was upset that a couple he invited for lunch ordered appetizers without first checking with the hosts to see whether it was OK. When my husband and I invite a couple to go out for dinner, we always tell them to order first. We don’t expect them to feel they can’t have appetizers if we are not. Why would you invite someone out and then expect them to feel nervous about what they are ordering? If you can’t afford to take them out for a proper dinner, invite them to your home. -- Not Cheap Dear Not Cheap: You are generous, although we suspect you might feel differently if you invited someone who ordered a $300 bottle of wine. It is incumbent upon guests to behave considerately. While good hosts should suggest appetizers, guests should not assume it is OK when they are not paying the bill. Annie’s Snippet for Patriot Day (credit author James K. Feibleman): That some good can be derived from every event is a better proposition than that everything happens for the best, which it assuredly does not.
