Divided Alton School Board rejects Common Core BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

ALTON — The School Board last night rejected the Common Core State Standards Initiative by a three-to-two vote, but apart from thumbing their

noses at the federal government and state Department of Education and reaffirming their belief in local control of schools, the impact of their decision remains obscure. Terri Noyes, vice-chairman

of the board, Krista Argiropolis and Carlos Martinez voted to reject Common Core, while chairman Sandy Wyatt and Stephen Miller favored adopting the new program. The Common Core State

CENTER HARBOR — The Board of Selectmen has appointed Leon Manville as the permanent, part-time fire chief and will either confirm its decision or begin a formal search for a replacement in January, after he

completes a six-month probationary period. Manville was named interim chief on the sudden resignation of John Schlemmer in July. A resident of Center Harbor, he began his career in the fire service in 1985 and

served as chief in his hometown between 1994 and 1998. Selectmen Harry Viens said that Manville has performed well after stepping in at short notice and managing see FIRE CHIEF page 11

‘WASHINGT ON (AP) — A potential federal shutdown looming, President Barack Obama on Monday warned congressional Republicans they could trigger national “economic chaos” if they demand a delay of his health care law as the price for supporting continued spending for federal operations. House Republican leaders were to meet Tuesday in hopes of finding a formula that would avoid a shutdown on Oct. 1 without alienating party conservatives who insist on votes to undercut the Affordable Care Act. Even more daunting is a midto late-October deadline for raising the nation’s borrowing limit, which some Republicans also want to use as leverage against the Obama administration. “Are some of these folks really so beholden to one extreme wing of their party that they’re willing to tank the entire economy just because they can’t get see CHAOS page 3

13 murdered in D.C. Navy Yard shooting rampage WASHINGTON (AP) — A former Navy reservist went on a shooting rampage Monday inside a building at the heavily secured Washington Navy Yard, firing from a balcony onto office workers in an atrium below, authorities and witnesses said. Thirteen people were killed, including the gunman. Authorities said they were looking for a possible second attacker who may have been disguised in an olive-drab militarystyle uniform. But as the day wore on and night fell, the rampage increasingly appeared to be the work of a lone gunman. The attack unfolded about 8:20 a.m. in the heart of the nation’s capital, less than four miles from the White House and two miles from the Capitol. Investigators said the motive was a mystery. Mayor Vincent Gray said there was no indication it was a terrorist attack. But he said the possibility had not been ruled out.

It was the deadliest shooting at a military installation in the U.S. since Maj. Nidal Hasan killed 13 people and wounded more than 30 in 2009 at Fort Hood in Texas. He was convicted last month and sentenced to death. President Barack Obama lamented yet another mass shooting in the U.S. that he said took the lives of American “patriots.” He promised to make sure “whoever carried out this cowardly act is held responsible.” The FBI took charge of the investigation and identified the gunman killed in the attack as 34-year-old Aaron Alexis of Texas. He died after a running gunbattle inside the building with police, investigators said. At the time of the rampage, Alexis was working in information technology with a company that was a Defense Department subcontractor. Authorities said he may have had a badge that enabled him to get onto the base, but they were still investigating.

Alexis was a full-time Navy reservist from 2007 to early 2011, leaving as a petty officer third class, the Navy said. It did not say why he left. He had been an aviation electrician’s mate with a unit in Fort Worth, Texas. Alexis had had run-ins with the law over shooting incidents in 2004 and 2010 in Fort Worth and Seattle and was portrayed in police reports as seething with anger. Witnesses on Monday described a gunman opening fire from a fourth-floor overlook, aiming down on people on the main floor, which includes a glass-walled cafeteria. Others said a gunman fired at them in a third-floor hallway. Patricia Ward, a logistics-management specialist, said she was in the cafeteria getting breakfast. “It was three gunshots straight in a row — pop, pop, pop. Three seconds later, it was pop, pop, pop, pop, pop, so it was like about see SHOOTINGS page 11

Franklin man arrested for DWI was on parole for 1981 murder conviction By Gail OBer

NORTHFIELD — A Franklin man who was convicted of murder in 1981 is back in prison tonight after being arrested by local police last Thursday for driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest. Northfield Police said Todd Johnson, 53, of 90 South Main St. Apt. A in Franklin allegedly tried to buy beer at the Big Apple in Tilton but was turned away by the clerk who felt he appeared “disoriented.” The clerk gave police a description of the car Johnson was driving and Northfield Police spotted it on Concord Road at 11:58 a.m. Police said Johnson appeared disoriented and seemingly impaired. They said he was uncoopera-

tive with police and was allegedly telling them he wanted to hurt himself. Johnson is said to have mentioned he had guns at home. Northfield Police took Johnson to Franklin Regional Hospital to rule out any medical or mental health issues. Police said his blood alcohol levels were nearly three times the legal driving level. Police learned Johnson was on parole for a homicide he committed in 1980 in Andover, N.H.

from preceding page their way on this issue?” Obama said in a speech at the White House. “Are they really willing to hurt people just to score political points?” The Republicans don’t see it that way. House Speaker John Boehner, who opposes the threat of a shutdown, said, “It’s a shame that the president could not manage to rise above partisanship today.” Obama, said Boehner, “should be

working in a bipartisan way to address America’s spending problem, the way presidents of both parties have done before,” and should delay implementation of the health care law. While some conservatives supported by the tea party have been making shutdown threats, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky said Monday that was “a dumb idea.” At a community meeting in Louisville, he said, “We should fight for what we believe in and then maybe we find


Todd Johnson (Northfield Police photo)

Department of Corrections Spokesman Jeff Lyons said Johnson was convicted of murder in 1981 in Merrimack County Superior Court and sentenced to 25 years to life in prison. He was just 21 at the time. He said Johnson was paroled on February 28, 1997 but was returned to prison on April 10, 1998 where he remained until June 7, 2000. Lyons said he has been on parole since then but because of last week’s encounter with police has been returned to prison on a “technical parole violation.” Lyons said he didn’t have any details of the homicide other than to say it occurred in Andover. Northfield Police said the Franklin Police are investigating Johnson’s claims of having guns at his house. something in between the two. ... I am for the debate, I am for fighting. I don’t want to shut the government down, though. I think that’s a bad solution.” Obama timed his remarks for the fifth anniversary of the bankruptcy of Wall Street giant Lehman Brothers, a major early event in the near-meltdown of the U.S. financial system and a severe global recession.

Stop . . . . . . always trying to blame the other guy. Be responsible for your own actions or inactions. . . . acting like a trash-talking athlete who is always trying to “dis” (disrespect) his opponent. It almost always comes back at you, showing you as being immature or petty. . . . talking . . . you’re overexposed. Paraphrasing writer Peggy Noonan, there comes a time when people get tired of all the words and just tune you out. . . . making every issue a “political” one . . . try putting country before party and see how much more respect the people will have for you. . . . demonizing businesses. Recognize that virtually every cent of tax revenues paid to federal, state, and local governments had its origin in some business enterprise. . . . talking about “waste, fraud, and abuse” and do something about it. — when the country was shown pictures and videos of Federal employees in lavish hotel surroundings, in hot tubs with their glasses of champagne, or being taught how to dance, were any actions taken to ensure that type of excess would not be tolerated? And, by the way, has that excessive amount of money spent on “partying” been removed from those departments’ subsequent budgets? — when departments such as Energy and Education have failed for years to meet the objectives for which they were created, why is the answer to always reward that failure with more funding . . . why aren’t they closed as any failed business would be? . . . protecting the guilty. When appropriate suspend them without pay or fire them. . . . giving those who violated the law and abused their offices “paid vacations” as “punishment” is a dereliction of duty and clearly falls into the category of “waste, fraud, and abuse”. . . . telling the public that those who have violated their public trust have “lost their positions”, only to find out later that they lost nothing, they were simply transferred to another position, is a compounding of the violation of the public trust by even higher level individuals. . . . stonewalling. The Congress is charged with oversight responsibility and it is their duty to investigate and get answers pertaining to actions such as the Benghazi attack, the IRS abuses of power, the Justice Department failure to fulfill its constitutional responsibility to enforce duly enacted laws, the Justice Department not providing truthful testimony to Congress concerning wire tapping of a reporter, his family, and his fellow employees. . . . attacking the Separation of Powers. Ff you don’t like a Supreme Court ruling you can seek to have a law written that will accomplish

what you think is necessary and will satisfy the court that it meets its constitutional requirements. — Publicly “dis”ing the Supreme Court is abhorrent behavior on the part of the Executive Branch. It is the responsibility of the Executive, through its Justice Department, to ensure that the rulings of the court are enforced, not ignored or challenged. — Publicly “dis”ing the Congress and continually stating that you intend to by-pass its authority if you don’t get your way. Such action is not only petty and petulant, it’s dictatorial threats diminish the highest office in the land. . . . challenging constitutional limits of Executive Branch power . . . making “recess appointments” as a thumb in the eye to the power of Congress to make its own rules. — While this Executive Branch’s action was overturned by the courts, during President Andrew Johnson’s term of office, a similar act by him was cause for writing Article 3 of his Impeachment. — Executive Branch arbitrarily changing implementation dates called for in the Affordable Care Act is an example of the Executive taking dictatorial actions. Again, it is the responsibility of the Justice Department to see that all laws are faithfully executed. In this case it appears the Justice Department simply chooses to ignore Executive Branch changes to the law, and it fails to meet its own constitutional responsibility. . . . turning “regulations” into “laws” that defy comprehension or understanding. — The Affordable Care Act is 2,409 pages long and there are an additional 19,000 plus pages of regulations already written. It is expected that it will take a total of 10 years to write all of the regulations. — There is an old saying that “Ignorance of the law is no excuse.” How is it that we have let the federal government so over-power people and businesses with words of legalese that no normal business will have the ability to reasonably understand what is expected of them. — The sheer volume of laws and regulations will require countless more people to be added to the already bloated Federal bureaucracy, just to administer them. . . . violating the First Amendment right to Freedom of Religion . . . by using edicts, regulations, and Executive Branch interpretations to restrict religious institutions and individuals by confining that freedom to only within the walls of their church, synagogue, or mosque. — Because of those demands, religious, heretofore untaxed, institutions will now be taxed, essentially paying for those things which are contrary to their beliefs. Please . . . stop it! (Bob Meade is a Laconia resident.)

LETTERS Republicans really started the ‘war’ on a $800 million deficit To The Daily Sun, I read with some skepticism Senator Andrew Hosmer’s article in The Laconia Daily Sun this summer about cooperation and progress and how glad he was “to help get Concord back to working together on solving problems and moving the state forward again.” It was in stark contrast to just one week prior when he made comments that the Democrats returned “civility to the Statehouse and ended the war on education, the war on hospitals, the war on women, and the war on the disabled.” I would like to remind Sen. Hosmer of the facts and offer a suggestion to him. There never was a “war” in New Hampshire on education, hospitals, women, or the disabled. However, there was a “war” on an $800 million deficit that the Republicans faced after years of Democrats borrowing, over-estimating revenues, and spending. The Republicans

ended “that war” in the last session by balancing the budget. Republicans have put us back on course in New Hampshire with a Republican-led Senate budget that fought against Democrats’ efforts to repeal business-friendly legislation, to impose tax and fee increases, and to offer inflated revenue estimates. The Republicans have demonstrated by actions, not rhetoric! Republicans have held firmly to the principal of spending only what we could afford and still were able to fund bi-partisan priorities. Senator Hosmer, I suggest that you replace your bi-partisan rhetoric with bi-partisan action. Your rhetoric does nothing to advance collaboration in Concord, but instead causes further division. Alan Glassman, Chairman Belknap Co. Republican Committee Center Barnstead

Due process requires a charge, a trial, a verdict & an appeal To The Daily Sun, In response to Cathy Merwin’s letter to the editor (http://laconiadailysun. com/index.php/opinion/letters/71502cathy-merwin-9-13-216): Cathy, you should really review your 3rd grade civics books. The attorney general doesn’t determine guilt. They are a division of the executive branch of government and are entitled to their opinions as much as you are. You may recall, due process requires a charge, a trial, jury at demand, a verdict, and appeal at demand. All that said, no charge was ever brought against me by the attorney general because NO VIOLATION OCCURRED. If they

thought they had a case, they would have invested the resources in a charge – but they did NOT! This is rudimentary civics and your sarcastic, arrogant, and ill-informed letter is the case-in-point that you are a naive and uninformed American (with an opinion) — one who could probably contribute meaningfully to the political process if you actually read the and understood the state and federal constitutions. E-mail me if you would like me to provide you with a copy of them! My personal email is Josh Youssef Laconia

Perhaps a ‘radical’ wouldn’t want to honor the Magna Carta To The Daily Sun, Cathy Merwin’s September 14 letter to the editor left me puzzled as to her intent. Did she write to bury or to praise the late Honorable Robert Kingsbury? One sentence read: “he sponsored a failed effort to tie future state legislatures to the Magna Carta”. I thought that the document in question limited arbitrary authority which at the time was held by the king. Many of

us would like to curb the arbitrary powers of our government which become ever more encompassing and expensive. If Ms. Merwin thinks honoring the Magna Carta, a fount of individual liberty, a bad thing then it is she who is radical and not the late honorable representative. Rep. Dick Burchell Belknap 5 Gilmanton

LETTERS Refuse to raise minimum wage & you facilitate downward spiral To The Daily Sun, As the CEO of a software company that I founded in the 1980s, I know that one has to keep expenses under control to maintain profitability. Our biggest cost beyond overhead and equipment was labor, the men and women who actually produced our products. As the company grew so did the salaries of our employees. We also extended our benefits to include family health plans, retirement plans and free eye glasses. As I look at today’s business climate, I am appalled to see what has happened to the American worker. Wages have increase by just 5 percent in the years 1979 to 2012, despite productivity growth of nearly 75 pecent. These indisputable statistics illustrate that workers no longer share in rising labor productivity. In the light of even modest inflation, workers are generally working much harder and getting paid less. Computers, automation and increased employee work-load with the threat of moving jobs away, has left workers with little bargaining power. Never before, have people been so fearful to even ask for a raise. Another factor is the utilization of foreign manufacturing to produce our products. In a healthy capital market, increases in productivity usually go hand in hand with increases in wages and salaries. Unfortunately, since 1979 corporate top executives and

corporation shareholders are the only people who have enjoyed the benefits of higher productivity. Anyone who has money in the stock market has seen huge increases in corporate earnings. Ironically, did you ever notice that when a large company announces a layoff of thousands of people, its stock price goes up? Look at the workers in McDonald’s. They are working every minute and get very little time to rest. Most are no longer teenagers, but people with families to support. Many are paid the minimum of $7.20 an hour, which comes out to about $13,100 a year, before deductions. Perhaps, you read this and say to yourself, “Who cares? No one I know wants to work at McDonald’s”? The reason why you should care is that pay scales are like the animal food chain. The upper end relies on the lower end. Managers and senior employees in a company are affected by the salary of lower income employees. If the starting pay in your company is cut or frozen, the salary of higher paid workers will also be affected. If your salary is “too high” you could be eliminated. Economists tell us that by 2020 nearly 42 percent of all jobs will be low-paying jobs. By refusing to raise the minimum wage, the Congress is facilitating this downward spiral. Nick Vazzana Sandwich

Those Canada geese look to me like 50 dinner walking around To The Daily Sun, I am wondering if there is a season for hunting the Canada geese, and if not, THERE SHOULD BE. I don’t know about the rest of the mothers around here, but they should be appalled at the children practicing football on the field of goose poop over by Beans and Greens. Every time I pass this field, there are at least 50

or more geese all over the field. It is a wonder that children are not walking around with some deadly disease, after all, where do they put their hands while playing on this field. Seems like there are at least 50 dinners walking around over there. Buv Buker Gilford

Whether seated at the piano or standing before an orchestra, baton in hand, Vladimir Svoysky’s approach to music is pure passion – a passion born from his formative years in his native Russia.

Johann Sebastian Bach’s genius produced some of the most beautiful music of all time. The results have been both lesson and inspiration to musicians for more than three centuries. Bach himself put it this way, “There is nothing so remarkable about it; one only need hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.” With a little assistance from Svoysky hitting the right keys at the right time, the result is an intriguing all-Bach concert performance.

LETTERS Young will lower lifestyles to increase wealth of those already with more To The Daily Sun, Hats off to Dale Channing Eddy of Gilford and his fabulous letter outlining the tragedy of Obamacare, now morphing to “ Obamascare” as its start day nears. She hit every nail on the head that will eventually be in the Obamacare’s coffin. This legislation will not survive as written. There are too many millions harmed by the unintended consequences as Dale so aptly pointed out and too few benefiting. Even unions are outraged, They are trying to GUT the legislation at its core. All Obamacare does is harm them. This is ironic considering unions spent tens of millions in DUES MONEY backing the legislation four years ago. When Nancy Pelosi finally opened the famous OBAMACARE BOX and peeked inside the union-eating DEVIL popped out. You remember that great punch line, it referenced the fact that not one Democrat had ever read the Obamacare legislation before it was passed because much it had yet to be written and what had been was in Egyptian hieroglyphics. Millions of union workers will dumped from employer health rolls forced to buy insurance on exchanges that will cost them much more. The so called “ Cadillac plans” that many unions fought hard and long for will now be highly taxed, forcing employers to provide less coverage in the future. The 30 hour, full-time employee mandate is causing millions of union workers to have their hours of work cut forcing them to find a second job, if they can. Good luck on that — jobs are scarce since Obama took office. Health insurance has always been a HUGE union bargaining chip that unions always managed to surpass non-union workers in obtaining. Above others,, gold-plated union health care is now DEAD. Obamacare will control almost all of how health care is priced, delivered,

and offered. Health care has essentially become just another government-controlled and much-financed bureaucracy. Obamacare destroys in one day what unions fought decades to accomplish. No wonder they are SCREAMING they want it GUTTED. They want Obamacare so modified it has already been determined it would require reopening debate in congress. You think Obama is going to let that happen. Only when your 90-year-old grandmother competes in the 2016 Olympics high jump event. Harmed most by Obamacare will not be unions, though they may scream loudest. It will be the YOUNG generation defined between the ages 24 and 36. The people with the lowest per capita wealth in America will be transferring more wealth to the age group with the highest in America, those over age 60. All with Democrats in the peanut gallery screaming we have “TOO MUCH INEQUALITY IN AMERICA”. They create EVERY BIT OF IT . The young among us are DROWNING under the burden of monster levels of college debt, now the highest in history, combined with one of the lousiest job markets in history. The young will be forced to live much LESSER lifestyles in order to increase the wealth of those already with more or be fined. Remember this prediction. Millions of the young will choose to pay the FINES under Obamacare BECAUSE THEY ARE FAR LESS than buying insurance, with or without a subsidy. If as predicted millions of them do not buy insurance TO PAY FOR THE SICK the cost of premiums for health insurance will “EXPLODE” out of this universe. The health insurance rolls will become totally dominated only by those who are SICK and incredibly costly. America warned of this impending DOOM from the beginning. There has see next page

LETTERS Using ‘chained CPI’ to calculate inflation will hurt senior citizens To The Daily Sun, A flawed policy initiative called the Chained CPI is gaining steam in Washington budget talks that would shortchange those who receive federal benefits such as Social Security and federal annuities by low-balling their annual cost-of-living adjustments (COLAs). Chained CPI supporters have tried to minimize the consequences it will have on seniors, retired federal employees, and veterans by calling it a “technical adjustment” or “better measure of inflation.” When you cut through the rhetoric, the truth is that the Chained CPI is only an adjustment in that it means smaller COLAs each year. It hurts every American — particularly our most vulnerable — in a major way that worsens over time.

How would the switch to the Chained CPI hurt an American citizen who receives the average $15,000 annual Social Security benefit? Over 25 years, Chained CPI would rob the senior of more than $23,000. Just think of how many coupons that senior would have to clip to make up for the loss of $23,000 over his/her retired years. For many federal annuitants who don’t receive Social Security, the impact is even greater. Over 25 years, the average federal retiree would see a loss of $48,000. I urge lawmakers to reject the Chained CPI and provide America’s seniors, retired veterans and public servants, and individuals with disabilities the income protection they have earned and deserve.

LETTERS Documentary ‘Northern Trespass’ is definitely worth your time

Selectmen’s proper course was to appeal ruling to Superior Court

To The Daily Sun, If you’re like me and are skeptical of the propaganda that multi-billion dollar corporations spew out in their full-page ads and glossy mailers, you should definitely go see “Northern Trespass,” a documentary on the proposed Northern Pass project which will be playing at the Franklin Opera House on Friday, September 21, at 7 p.m. I saw this documentary in Plymouth a few weeks ago and it is definitely

To The Daily Sun, This letter is in response to Moultonborough Board of Selectman member Tolman’s recent letter that defended the actions of his board in attempting to remove two Planning Board members at a hearing held on September 9th. While one can argue the issue of whether the votes of the two Planning Board members were correct or even rational, the proper arbiter to determine the validity of those votes was the Superior Court. The problem with Mr. Tolman’s arguments is that he failed to see that the option he and the Selectboard members used to remedy what they perceived to be errors by the Planning Board, “impeachment” of the two Planning Board members, was flawed as the statute they relied upon required a showing of malfeasance.

When the Town Administrator presented his “indictment” of the Planning Board members, based upon his perception of what should have been done, he provided the Selectboard with two options, which probably were not intended to be mutually exclusive. The first was appeal the decision to Superior Court; the second was to subject the offending Planning Board members to a removal hearing. For whatever reasons, in the infamous unrecorded “non-meeting,” the selectmen elected the second option to attempt to remove the allegedly offending Planning Board members, even though that option would not remedy the alleged problem described by the town administrator.

To The Daily Sun, Once again the Carye family has donated another extremely important parcel of land in Gilford for conservation. Last year they donated over 387 acres to the New England Forestry Foundation adjacent to the Meadows property. That land was specifically noted in the Town’s Natural Resource Inventory as a top priority for protection. They recently donated an additional 8.4 acres of land that lies between the east side of Walmart and the state owned land that abuts Lily Pond at the end of the bypass. The


property also abuts the 16 acres of land donated by Steve Grant on the western shore of Lily Pond in 2011. The land contains prime wetlands which are a rare natural resource in Gilford and are high priorities for protection. The land not only acts as a buffer for Lily Pond but also contains a short stretch of Black Brook that exits Lily Pond. The Gilford Land Conservation Task Force on behalf of the Gilford Conservation Commission and the Town of Gilford would like to publicly see next page

Proposed $125 fee to keep chickens in Laconia challenged as too expensive BY GAIL OBER


LACONIA — Potential chicken owners will have to wait at least a month before the Zoning Board of Adjustment decides whether or not to pass on to the City Council for approval a zoning amendment that would allow the birds to be kept in areas of the city where they are currently prohibited. After holding it first public hearing in City Hall last night, the ZBA asked Planning Director Shanna Saunders to include language in the proposed chicken ordinance that address regulations about keeping chickens in so-called cluster developments. The next public hearing is scheduled for October 21. Karen and Tom Barker were the only city residents who attended last night’s hearing. Karen Barker said the primary concern with the ordinance as written is the proposed $125 fee for a special exception to the zoning ordinance for all

Durham firefighter charged with starting 5 blazes in 1 day

DURHAM, N.H. (AP) — Police in Durham have charged a firefighter with setting five fires in one morning. Deputy Police Chief Rene Kelley says 22-year-old Gregory Potter, a Peterborough firefighter, set the fires on Feb. 2 in five off-campus student apartments. No one was hurt but one building burned to the ground and three people sleeping in one building were forced to escape. Police offered a $3,000 reward during the seven-month investigation. Potter is charged with arson, criminal mischief and falsifying evidence, for deleting six photos from his cell phone. He was arrested Monday. He was jailed on $100,000 bail and is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in the 7th Circuit Court.

wannabe chicken owners. Calling $125 a “burdensome charge,” Barker said she thinks dogs are more annoying to neighbors than chickens and it’s only $7 annually to register a dog. Barker said she agrees with the ZBA that the town should know where the chickens are and if the coops satisfy setback requirements and shoreline protection provisions, but she said the fee could be too much. “One-hundred twenty-five dollars could signify someone who could afford to keep chickens,” said Saunders, defending the proposed application fee, adding that the Zoning Task Force spoke extensively about the affordability of keeping chickens. ZBA member Kate Geraci noted it would take a lot of eggs to compensate for a $125 special exemption fee. The board discussed a fee-waiver process and Saunders said she would look into it and report back. Member Suzanne Perley said the $125 fee comes as part of the application for all special exemptions that go before the ZBA and anyone who wants to keep chickens will need a special exemption. If the zoning amendment passes, people who live in residential single-family (RS) areas, residential general areas (RG), and shorefront residential areas (SFR) can keep chickens. The current ordinance essentially restricts them from the most densely populated parts of the city. Saunders said she has seen a number of special exception requests for chickens come before the ZBA

and the board decided to look at an amended ordinance before granting any special exceptions. Right now, chickens are included in the agriculture zoning ordinances but Saunders said, for now, only chickens are being discussed. Should the ordinance passes the ZBA, which Saunders said is the operative board because it’s the one that has fielded all the chicken requests, it would need to be approved by the City Council. When asked if the Planning Board also has to review and approve the ordinance should it be approved by the ZBA, Saunders said the city is seeking a legal opinion about the Planning Board’s role. As written, the amended ordinance says a lot in a residential area is limited to five chickens — no roosters — and the coop must be at least 20 feet from the property line and 10 feet from the primary residence. People who own chickens may not sell their eggs or chickens but can give them away. No slaughtering in the city would be allowed. Chickens may not be kept in front yards and all chickens shall be kept in appropriate coops high enough to prevent the chickens from flying away. The coops must also be constructed so that wild animals can’t get in and the chickens are protected from the elements. Feed must be kept secure and no more than three cubic yards of chicken manure can be kept on the property.

Meredith selectmen all for fast-tracking safety improvements to 1/4-mile stretch of Rte. 104 By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

MEREDITH — Selectmen indicated strong support for proposed safety improvements on Rte. 104 at the Meredith Center Road and Chase Road intersections at a workshop session Monday afternoon. Bill Oldenburg of the New Hampshire Department of Transportation’s Design Bureau and Jon Hebert, DOT preliminary design engineer, presented a road safety audit report which the DOT initiated nearly three years ago in response to local concerns over the one-quarter mile stretch of road. Those concerns included the lack of a passing option for vehicles which are behind those making a left turn onto Chase Road when headed east on Rte. 104 and the obscuring of left turning vision for those trying to enter Rte. 104 and proceed west from Meredith Center Road. The report says that eastbound traffic turning right onto Meredith Center Road obscures the view of motorists trying to enter Rte. 104 and proceed in a westerly direction and that the right turn lane is frequently used as a passing lane in an area where the speed limit is 55 miles per hour and which saw nine crashes from 2002 until 2009. Hebert said the proposed project includes construction of a left turn bypass shoulder at Chase Road and an eastbound offset right turn lane, 12 feet

wide with a two foot shoulder and a painted island, into Meredith Center Road which would improve the sight distance for left turning traffic looking west from Meredith Center Road. The roadway work would start 400 feet west of Chase Road on Rte. 104 and continue east to about 100 feet east of the Meredith Center Road. One option, which would cost about $425,000, could be accomplished by the spring of 2015 and would be done entirely with state and federal highway funds. A second option, also done completely without any local funding, which would, in addition to other improvements in the first option, add a painted island west of the Chase Road intersection to better delineate the left turn bypass shoulder, would cost about $550,000 and could take up to three or more years to put in place as the entire project might not fall within the existing right of way and would necessitate eminent domain proceedings. Selectman Lou Kahn said that he was all in favor of the proposed changes and Selectman Herb Vadney said that he thought the town should express its support for the most easily achieved option so that safety concerns could be addressed as soon as possible. Town Manager Phil Warren said that the board of selectmen will take up the proposal in the near future and that he will draft a letter of support for the proposal for the board’s consideration.

TILTON — Police are investigating a burglary at a Rte. 3 stove sales and installation center that occurred sometime late Thursday night. Angelo Farruggia, the owner of Fire N’ Stone, said yesterday about $40,000 in mostly Dewalt-brand tools as well as two pellet stoves that were still in the crates were taken by what appears to be two white males. Farruggia said it a security tape shows the two first entered his warehouse sometime around 11 p.m. Thursday and exited carrying what they could in their arms. He said it looked like they dumped their haul in a dark colored Dodge Caravan parked on Church Street. He said at 11:40 p.m. the tape shows his warehouse garage door opening and his 2013 red 3,500ton dump truck exiting. He said it turned right from

Church Street on to Route 3 and was headed toward Laconia. Farruggia said there were two brand new stoves in the truck bed but he believes the theft of the stoves was an afterthought and whoever burglarized his place was after tools. “One of (the stoves) weighs 500 pounds,” Farruggia said. “I don’t think two guys could lift it from the truck.” He said he thinks the two men loaded up the rest of the tools they were unable to carry and loaded them into the back of the truck. He said the keys were in the ignition of the Chevy which was locked in the garage. Farruggia said police told him the truck was recovered over the weekend on School Street in Laconia. see next page

MEDICAID from page 2 free car safety seats and booster seats for infants and children and free bike helmets for kids. New Hampshire Health Families and Meridian Health Plan are offering SafeLink cellphones to some. All three offer programs to address obesity. “Each one of the health plans has certain features that distinguishes it from the others, but overall, clients are going to get the services they’ve been provided,” said Cooney. A law was passed two years ago to move the state from fee-for-service to a managed care system for Medicaid clients, but efforts to implement the system stalled when health care providers refused to participate due to low state reimbursement levels for treating those patients, among other issues. The budget written by Republicans that same year cut state hospital aid for all but a handful of critical access hospitals. And the 10 largest hospitals sued over Medicaid rates, which complicated efforts to negotiate over managed care. Lawmakers restored some aid in the budget adopted in June and required hospitals to participate in the managed care system to receive it. Since then, hospitals and other providers have agreed to participate, making it possible for the state to move ahead with its managed care system. The system will be implemented in phases. Switching to managed care is mandatory for most clients during the first phase, which covers medical care, such as doctors. The developmentally disabled, clients in nursing homes and clients receiving long-term care services will be required to enroll in a plan in about a year .

Burglars scared off by alarm BELMONT — Police are investigating a burglary at Piche’s Ski and Sport Outlet on Route 3 early Friday morning. Lt. Rich Mann said it appears someone broke a window and was able to get into the building but the alarm started sounding and he or she fled before anything could be stolen. He said police are pursuing a number of leads. If anyone has any information they should call the Belmont Police at 267-8350. FIRE CHIEF from page one the department during the busy summer season. Last month the selectmen met with Don Jutton of Municipal Resources, Inc. in Meredith, who recommended they convene a search committee, which would include professional firefighters, to select a chief to succeed Schlemmer. However, the board rejected the recommendation for want of sufficient funds. Manville will work 28 hours per week according to the same job description that applied to Schlemmer, Viens explained. He said that to meet Jutton’s suggestion that members of the Fire Department participate in the hiring process, firefighters will be asked to submit anonymous evaluations of Manville’s performance in December, prior to the end his probationary period. When Schlemmer resigned, members of the department urged the Selectboard to resolve their differences with him. However, when the selectmen learned that Schlemmer had retained an attorney, efforts at reconciliation were abandoned. In a statement released to press, Schlemmer claimed that while he needed to work 40 hours per week to fulfill the responsibilities of his job description, he was only compensated for 28 hours and that when he sought to address the issue he was instructed to limit his work hours to 28. — Michael Kitch SHOOTINGS from page 2 a total of seven gunshots, and we just started running,” Ward said. In addition to those killed, more than a dozen people were hurt, including a police officer and two female civilians who were shot and wounded. They were all expected to survive. Police would not give any details on the gunman’s weaponry, but witnesses said the man they saw had a long gun — which can mean a rifle or a shotgun. The Washington Navy Yard is a sprawling, 41-acre labyrinth of buildings and streets protected by armed guards and metal detectors, and employees have to show their IDs at doors and gates. More than 18,000 people work there. The rampage took place at Building 197, the headquarters for Naval Sea Systems Command, which buys, builds and maintains ships and submarines. About 3,000 people work at headquarters, many of them civilians. Todd Brundidge, an executive assistant with Navy Sea Systems Command, said he and co-workers encountered a gunman in a long hallway on the third floor. The gunman was wearing all blue, he said. “He just turned and started firing,” Brundidge said. Terrie Durham, an executive assistant with the same agency, said the gunman fired toward her and Brundidge. “He aimed high and missed,” she said. “He said nothing. As soon as I realized he was shooting, we just said, ‘Get out of the building.’” from preceding page He said he was reaching out to the general public because the truck stands out and he thinks that whoever stole it, his tools, and his stoves may have engaged the hydraulic lift in order to get the stoves out. “I’m hoping someone either saw the truck or heard it,” he said. If anyone has any information please call the Tilton Police at 286-4442. — Gail Ober

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, September 17, 2013— Page 13

COMMON CORE from page one (DOE) three years ago, sets standards for measuring mastery of math and English language arts/literacy curriculum at each grade level that emphasize critical thinking and problem solving and are meant to better prepare students for success. New Hampshire is one of 45 states which has adopted the Common Core standards which are being incorporated into classroom teaching in advance ahead of new nationwide assessment tests which students are scheduled to take in the spring of 2015. “We showed that our community has real concerns,” declared State Rep. Jane Cormier (R-Alton), who is married to Martinez, after the vote. As for the practical implications of the vote, she said “who knows?” Noting that officials of the New Hampshire Department of Education could not answer basic question about the program, Cormier claimed “they’re making it up as they go along” and asked “why should adopt something when we don’t have all the answers?” Opening the discussion on the issue, Carol Locke, speaking as an Alton resident and principal of Gilmanton School, began by correcting claims that a third of the teachers in Gilmanton left the school rather than teach to the Common Core standards, which were made at a board meeting. In fact, she said only three teachers left, two for teaching positions closer to their homes and a librarian who retired. Suggestions that teachers reacted against Common Core, Locke insisted “are simply not true,” adding “they really don’t have concerns.” The program is designed to raise standards, she continued. “It’s not a bad thing to bring our education up to a higher standard.” Richard Kirby, who teaches sixth grade English and mathematics at Alton Central School, told the board that the Alton Teachers Association welcomes Common Core. “It offers new challenges to students to become problem solvers, critical thinker and technologically literate,” he said. “It raises the bar for from preceding page fun things to do. A lot of the people here have never seen coffee prepared this way and it’s been interesting to explain to them what we’re doing and teach them new ways of enjoying coffee and bringing out the unique characteristics of different roasts,’’ said Delay. Brooke Sheeran Demers of D Squared Coffee of Exeter said that there was a state of panic at the start of the festival as the electrical power which had been extended up and down the street for the vendors blew out. ‘’We found our right away that it was a problem with an outlet and solved it real quick,’’ said Randy Bullerwell of the Main Street Initiative, which organized the festival. Main Street, between Hanover Street and Church Street was blocked off to vehicular traffic, during the festival.

grade levels and individuals.” Denying the federal government has a legitimate role in elementary and secondary education, Cormier urged the board to “stay true to local education. Parents know best what is good for their children. Local committees know best,” she said. She warned against what she called the “propaganda” of expecting all students to perform to the same standards. “Nobody is the same,” she said. Likewise, she insisted “we don’t learn through assessments.” “Common Core is a big mistake,” Cormier declared. “I hope we have some backbone here tonight.” Locke countered that Cormier misrepresented the program. “Assessment is just a tool,” she said, explaining that it does not displace learning in the classroom. Moreover, she reminded the board that Common Core is “not that different from the state standards we have now.” Voicing the state motto “live free or die,” a woman asked “why would we want to take federal money? Once you let the government in,” she continued, “you can’t get rid of it. It gets bigger and bigger.” “There’s a lot more to it than just what happens in the classroom,” said Cormier, who said that the program includes “data mining,” which invades the privacy of “pre-schoolers to 20-year-olds. It’s a mammoth step towards federalizing the curriculum.” Superintendent William Lander assured the board that “there is no mining of data” and the privacy of students is protected by both federal and state statutes. Expressing his support for Common Core, he said that much time and effort had been invested in designing the curriculum to fit the program, which he would not want to see undone. Nevertheless, Cormier struck a chord with Noyes who said “I have a fear of losing local control, a large fear. I don’t want the federal government telling us how many kids we can have in a classroom.” Argiropolis sounded the same note, charging that “the DOE is eroding local control with all this topdown stuff.” Miller said that he was “fully in favor of Common Core” and wondered why few have spoken against it. “I won’t vote for Common Core,” Martinez interrupted, snapping “how’s that for taking a stand?” Miller pointed out that it has been adopted by 45 states and the District of Columbia. “We can’t develop a standard to compete with Common Core,” he said, asking “what will happen if Prospect Mountain applies Common Core? Will that create a remedial situation?” “This is not a political issue,” Miller remarked. “It’s an education issue.” He said that students at Alton Central School performed below the state average on standardized tests and stressed “in as much as standards are being raised, we have to keep pace.” After the meeting Kirby said that despite the vote of the board, beginning in 2015 his students will have to take the new test — the Smarter Balanced Assessment — which is formatted to measure their progress against the Common Core standards.

Sealants – an Ounce of Prevention Dental sealants are a high-tech composite resin applied to the uneven chewing surfaces of your back teeth (molars) where decay occurs most often. The sealant flows into holes (“pits”) and crevices (“fissures“) and bonds to the teeth. Dental sealants act as a barrier, protecting the teeth against decay-causing bacteria. It is almost impossible to keep the pits and fissures clean without sealants since even the tiny bristles of your toothbrush cannot reach into these areas. These nooks and crannies make convenient spots for plaque germs to hide and attack unprotected teeth. Sealants protect the enamel and block bacteria from attacking the tooth, thus preventing cavity formation for as long as the sealant remains intact. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and usually last for a few years. This is a very cost-effective approach to keeping teeth healthy, and is advocated by the National Institute of Health for that reason. Typically, children and teens benefit most from sealants, but they may be beneficial for adults in some situations also. Ask your dentist if sealants can work for you or your children. If a sealant is indicated, be proactive and get it done! Don’t wait for decay to turn that simple sealant into a filling.

SPORTS 3 hat tricks for I-L’s Rotonnelli It took Inter-Lakes’ Caitlin Rotonnelli less than 8 minutes in Friday’s match against Kingswood to complete her third hat trick of the young season. Inter-Lakes went on to a 6-0 win. Chloe Davis and Daniele Boucher added two more goals for Inter-Lakes in the first half. The final goal of the match was scored in the second half by junior center midfielder Madelyn Edgar, who had previously recorded an assist. Sarah Dunlap, Charlotte Morrow, and Boucher also had assists in the match. Inter-Lakes’ defense held Kingswood to just one shot, stopped by senior Reilly Donovan. With the win, the Lakers record improves to 4-1. The team travels to White Mountain on Thursday, hosts Moultonborough on Friday and travels to Prospect Mountain on Monday.

Passing leads to offense for Gilford field hockey Maddie LaFlamme and Alyssa Hamberger controlled the center of the field with their passing to help Gilford High School’s field hockey team defeat Kearsage 8 -0 on Friday. Rachel Blandford benefited from the passing with four goals while Kelsey Buckley added two along with single goals by Becky Zakorchemny and Marissa Kelleher. The defense continued to support the offense as Gilford moved to 3- 0 -1 on the young season. The Gilford junior varsity team also won, 2-1. Goals were scored by Kassy Weston and Shannon Anderson.

Same players, different team for LHS soccer By AlAnA Persson FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA – Although many of the faces on the Laconia High School boys’ varsity soccer team are the same that made up last year’s team, the players

have taken it upon themselves to ensure that their 2013 season won’t look like their 2012 outing, which ended with a first-round playoff exit. The loss against Hopkington for during the tournasee next page

Sant Bani soccer team starts season with 9-2 win The 2013 Sant Bani soccer team had an impressive start to their season Saturday, outscoring the Holderness JVII team at home, 9-2. Led by senior co-captain Harrison Evans, the goals came in rapid succession and by the half, four Sant Bani players had contributed to the 7-0 lead. It took only 8 minutes before Evans put his team on the board, followed by unanswered

goals from fellow seniors Javin de Mello-Folsom and Caio Thielen, with junior Mohamed Sapry scoring his first of the season just before the half. With a sizeable lead to work with, Sant Bani coach Todd Schongalla was able to give some of his younger players significant minutes in the second half. “We’re going to need those see next page

from preceding page ment last year stung for the Sachems on the 2012 team. The sting lingered through the winter and spring, then morphed into motivation. Starting over the summer, the boys took practicing into their own hands. Spending many afternoons at Leavitt Park, the players individually and collectively practiced and sharpened the skills that would be needed during the months to come. The prospect of a winning soccer team was the driving force that got many of the boys out of bed early in the morning to do personal conditioning on their own time. Watching the boys take the field, one can see that their efforts have paid off. The team this year is made of up almost all familiar players, many of whom are seniors. Fans of the team have watched these seniors evolve and grow over the years, into talented athletes. Seniors on the team this year include Jake Sykes, Patrick Guyer, Edis Dizdarevic, Brady Caldwell, Eric Cheney and Jake Sullivan, as well as captains Aidan Dean and Kolby Fornier. “I have enjoyed working with each of these guys during my time on the both the middle school soccer team and high school varsity soccer team,” says senior, Dizdarevic. “Over the years we have not only become better athletes, but also a stronger more supportive team that is working hard to get the senior championship. I’m proud of our accomplishments and will miss them when this season comes to a close.” The fast and intense games of this year have proven exciting for coaches to coach and spectators to watch. In last week’s game Dean was working hard on the field, passing and receiving the ball with apparent ease and confidence, even during moments of pressure from the opposing team.

Brayden Harriman, a junior, has also developed into a strong asset to the team, a player who will take charge of an oncoming ball in any way possible, often heading as many as he kicks. Fornier also has had many shining moments on the field, winning possession of the ball forcing scoring opportunities on multiple occasions. Although it ended with a loss, a recent game against the perenniallypowerful Gilford team illustrated the Sachems’ new attitude. The match was intense, and as the second half was drawing to a close Laconia was looking at a 3-0 deficit. With two seconds to go, Dean scored, making the final score 3-1. Gilford might have earned the win, but the Sachems denied their opponents the satisfaction of a shut-out. As a junior, goalie Panthavy Pradachith, has also claimed a spot as captain of the team. Pradachith has had two shut out games already and is convinced that the Sachems will be a team to reckon with this season. “This year we’re going to show that we are a different team,” says Pradachith. “We are going to prove we have gotten strong and better. I have a feeling that this year will be a team to remember for our soccer team. But no matter what the outcome is, at the end of the season I will be happy I got to play soccer with my friends, my teammates, my brothers.” Currently, the team has a record of 3-2, significantly better than where the players found themselves this time last year. Redeeming themselves from a loss against Gilford, Laconia had a 6-0 win against Newfound last Friday. The team is scheduled to play Plymouth away this afternoon and will host Newfound again on September 23.

Inter-Lakes volleyball takes straight-set win at Mascoma

Waukewan Ladies League hosts 40th invitational tournament

The Inter-Lakes High School varsity volleyball team improved to 3-1 on the season with a straight set win on the road at Mascoma on Friday night, September 13. Set scores were 25-8, 25-5, 25-11. Leading the way for the Lakers were Jordan Donohue (16 kills, 5 aces), Hayley Roth (19 assists, 21 points) and Jenn Pelczar (14 points, 5 digs). Also contributing were Lydia Swedberg (12 service points) and Kaila Martin (3 kills). Freshman Gabriella Flanders and Rebecca Otis picked up their first varsity service points, each recording an ace.

As the fog lifted and the sun began to shine, the 95 golfers from over 22 courses throughout the state knew they were in for a steamy day of golf. “Heart of a Woman” was the theme for this September 11th Invitational. This year’s charity, New Hampshire Goes Red for Women, was reflected throughout as the ladies wore their red attire, a heart balloon was tied to each of the flag pins on the course and the Bar-N decorations highlighted red dresses everywhere including a red dress lapel pin for each of the contestants. The red dress represents the ability of all women to improve their heart health and live stronger, longer lives. After the ladies enjoyed a continental breakfast provided by League members, President Kathy Sweeney welcomed the field of golfers and introduced GM Craig Hale who in addition to reviewing the rules, prize holes and format, gave the family history of how his grandfather, with his grandmother’s urging changed their farm into a nine-hole and eventually an 18 hole golf course. Committee Chair, Carolyn Koczera thanked the rest of her committee as well as Pro shop manager Justin Barkley for all their hard work. The ladies also joined Koczera in thanking the several husbands who served as the welcoming “bag guys”. During play, there were eight contest holes waiting for the ladies to demonstrate their precision shots. Those ladies winning the prize of ball marker necklaces were: Carol Leblanc who drove her ball “Closest to the Line on #2”, Brenda Trudeau-”Closest to the Pin” at 14’ 2 “ on # 3, Irene Schultz –”Closest to the Pin” at 2’7” on # 11, Donna Grantz –”Closest to the Pin” at 16’11” on #16 winning a complimentary golf lesson from Waukewan’s Pro Chuck Yeager, Nancy Vercauteran-”Closest to the Pin-2nd Shot” at 6’4” on # 5, Deb Gamans-”Closest to the Pin-2nd Shot” on #14, Erin Dymen-”Longest Drive” on #8 and Patti Safallo-”Longest Drive” on #15. The field of golfers was treated to both appetizers provided by the League’s members as well as a tasty luncheon catered by Kurt’s Caterers in the much-appreciated air- conditioned Bar-N. Before the much-anticipated raffle was begun, Carolyn Koczera led the Pledge of Allegiance in memory of those who lost their lives on 9/11/2001. Barb Saimond, the other half of the raffle duo, joined Koczera as winning tickets were announced for the many items generously donated by not only

Muddy race hosted by Laconia XC At an invitational held by the Laconia High School cross-country team on Friday, Cam Daly of InterLakes and Ryan LaFrance of Gilford proved to be too strong for the other runners and with two miles still to go it was a two man race. In end, it was Cam Daly running away with the win on a tough, muddy, technical, and wet course with a winning time of 18:55. On the girls’ side, it was all Andrea Shinn from Newfound. Going through the first mile Andrea already had 30 seconds on the entire field. She would run solo for the win, edging second place by nearly 1 minute and 30 seconds, crossing the line in 26:05.

Holderness was not about to go home empty handed, matching Sant Bani goal-for-goal in the second half, scoring twice in the 11th and 23rd minute. Sant Bani junior Ander Treviño Aizpurua netted his second of the afternoon shortly thereafter, at which point the defense took over and held Holderness to just the two goals. Sant Bani faces New Hampton’s JVA team at home on Monday.

Tokle, Trudgeon inducted into Ski Jump Hall of Fame GILFORD — Two men with local ties were inducted into the American Ski Jumping Hall of Fame during the organization’s induction ceremonies held at Iron Mountain, MI. The late William Trudgeon, formerly of Laconia, and Kenneth Tokle of New York, were both honored as Hall of Fame inductees on August 17, 2013. William Trudgeon was recently Trudgeon moved to inducted into the American the Lakes Region from Ski Jumping Hall of Fame. A Vermont during the former resident of Laconia, 1947 ski season and Trudgeon’s career in ski jumpnever left. Members of ing spanned nearly fifty years. the Winnipesaukee Ski (Courtesy photo) Club quickly realized his many talents and invited him to become head coach of their organization. In that role, he quietly brought about numerous advancements at Gunstock, particularly in the area of ski jumping and coached many ski jumpers that would eventually become Olympians. Local Olympic Medalist Penny Pitou and Olympian Marty Hall give Trudgeon credit for teaching them how to be highly successful skiers and for always being there for the young skiers at Gunstock. Trudgeon became one of the founders of the Gunstock Nordic Association in 1972, and along with

fellow founder, T. Gary Allen, and a crew of volunteers, created one of the most successful Nordic organizations in the East and in the country. He organized and ran numerous national and international ski jumping meets at Gunstock; the most impressive being the Olympic trials held prior to the 1980 Olympics in Lake Placid, NY. After nearly fifty years of competing in and contributing to the sport of ski jumping, he decided to officially retire from the sport following his participation in the 1980 Olympics as a ski jumping official. Kenneth Tokle is a member of one of the most famous ski jumping families in the world. He is the nephew of ski jumping legend, Torger Tokle. During the late 1930s and early 40’s, Torger jumped numerous times from the then 60-meter ski jump at Gunstock. In 1946, the largest jump at the recreation area was named in his honor after he was killed in battle during World War II. His nephew, Kenneth, began his ski jumping career at the age of 12 when he became a competitor in the sport. His focus became coaching and judging. He eventually rose to the level of FIS ski jumping official, and judged jumping competitions throughout the world. In 2011, he was honored with the USSA Mittelstadt Ski Jumping Award for his dedication and contributions to ski jumping officiating in the United States. His career in the sport lasted well over four decades. The American Ski Jumping Hall of Fame was founded in 2006 and is dedicated to preserving the rich heritage of ski jumping in the United States.

Expert speakers to discuss Bill of Rights at PSU in honor of Constitution Day PLYMOUTH — Is gay marriage legal? Should the government eavesdrop on your phone and email conversations? Should drones target American citizens? These vexing legal questions will be front and center Thursday, September 19 at 7 p.m. as Plymouth State University celebrates Constitution Day. Retired NH Supreme Court Justice William Batchelder and the former President of the American Civil Liberties Union and Law Professor Nadine Strossen will have a conversation about the Bill of Rights and recent Supreme Court decisions to celebrate

Constitution Day with PSU students and faculty. The event is free and open to the public and takes place at Heritage Commons on the campus of Plymouth State University. PSU Criminal Justice Professor Mark Fischler said the event will be a thought-provoking discussion about topics affecting every American citizen. “Justice Batchelder and Nadine Strossen are two of the most selfless and wise people I know,” Fischler said. “They both have demonstrated courage in confronting difficult constitutional questions throughout their illustrious legal careers.”

The show highlights classic hits like “Candyman”, “Mr. Bojangles”, “Lady is a Tramp”, “What Kind of Fool Am I?”, just to name a few. Kee is astonishingly like Sammy Davis, Jr. in both song styling and body language”, says Interlakes Theatre producer, Nancy Barry. “The audiences loved him here this summer in “Ain’t Misbehavin” and again as “Jimmy Thunder Early” in “Dreamgirls” and begged me to bring him back.” “The show isn’t about imitation. I’m just being Solomon on stage”, says Kee, who plays Sammy Davis, Jr. “I sing his songs and add a few Sammy Davisisms here and there. I don’t believe anyone can impersonate him. He was one of a kind. I just wanna make the world taste good, like he did.” All tickets for the show are $25 and can be purchased online at or by calling 1-888-245-6374.

CHASE from page one Spaulding Road, endangered the lives of two minor children, and resisted arrest during his attempts to stop them from arresting him. He was also ordered held on $3,000 personal recognizance bail for the four misdemeanors, that included driving a car without authorization — a lesser charge than felony auto theft. Mulcahy, whose girlfriend and son were in court, didn’t say anything during a session of 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division yesterday afternoon. His appearance was via an audio and video connection with the Belknap County Jail. His girlfriend, who was with him for most of the alleged car chase, told The Daily Sun she thought the police were making a big deal out of nothing. According to affidavits filed with the court, Gilmanton Police Sgt. Matt Currier said he was alerted by a dispatcher at the Belknap County Sheriff’s Office that someone who was possibly intoxicated had just left a ball field in New Durham and was headed toward Alton and Gilmanton. Dispatch said the man was driving a Mercury Sable. Currier said he first noticed Mulcahy driving a 2003 Mercury Sable on Places Mill Road in Alton near the Gilmanton town line. He said the car was driving in the middle of the road and was headed west. He estimated it was driving 40 mph in a 25-mph speed zone. Currier said he sounded the siren to get Mulcahy to stop. He said as the car entered into Gilmanton he saw Mulcahy’s face in the side mirror. Currier said he knows Mulcahy and said he also knows he doesn’t have a valid drivers license. He followed the car onto Crystal Lake Road where he said Mulcahy increased his speed. Currier, who was driving a marked police cruiser, said he was still using his emergency lights and siren to get Mulcahy to stop. Mulcahy slowed as he neared Hill Road and made a wide right turn on to Hill. Currier said he also turned on to Hill Road but said he nearly hit Mulcahy and drove off the road to avoid contact.. During the near miss, Currier said he noticed there were two younger children in the back of the Mulcahy’s car. Currier said Mulcahy drove quickly on to Hill Road and made a left on to one of the dirt roads off Hill. Currier saw the car moving rapidly, sliding on the dirt, onto McPhee Road and stopped chasing it because of the two children in the back. Currier said he was driving back toward Hill Road when he saw Mulcahy come around one of the corners of the loop created by Hill Road and McPhee Road.

With the two cars now facing each other on Hill Road, Currier said Mulcahy slammed the car into reverse and drove back onto Crystal Lake Road and headed north this time. About a minute later, Currier rounded the loop and saw the Sable parked on Rainbo Lane — another dirt road off the Hill Road loop. He said he saw Mulcahy running from the car, leaving the driver’s door open. He said Mulcahy’s girlfriend grabbed what he thought were the keys and threw them on the ground as she moved away from the Sable. About seven minutes later, Currier saw a Red Jeep Cherokee being driven by Mulcahy come out of Hill Road and turn onto Crystal Lake Road. He said he drew his weapon but kept it in a “low ready position.” He said Mulcahy threw the Jeep into reverse when he saw Currier. Currier spoke to the owners of the red Jeep who confirmed that Mulcahy was driving it and had allegedly stolen it from their Hill Road home. He said he found the Jeep near Miller Road and called for a K-9 from the Gilford Police to track Mulcahy. Currier went to the Mulcahy’s home and spoke with his girlfriend who told him Mulcahy hadn’t been drinking but that he ran from police because he was scared. About one-half hour later, Currier arrested Mulcahy on Crystal Lake Road. Mulcahy allegedly admitted he was driving the cars. Along with two felonies for operating a motor vehicle after being deemed an habitual offender and an additional one for stealing the car, Mulcahy also faces two misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a child, one misdemeanor count of resisting arrest, and one misdemeanor count of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. At 5:30 p.m. yesterday Mulcahy was still in the Belknap County Jail, however a corrections sergeant said he believed he would be able to post bail.

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You want to be independent, but someone will offer to help you, and you will seem like an ingrate if you don’t take that help. This is a legitimate assist. And don’t worry -- if it works out, it will still be you doing the work. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If you can be still inside yourself, you will be protected from the chaos of the world. It will swirl around you, but you won’t be swept up in the momentum. You’ll be the eye of the storm. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Those who have not been well taken care of by their families value loyalty just as much as others do. Have patience with those who are still learning the power of allegiance. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 17). A special someone will help you understand and use your talents. October brings a career breakthrough. Spend many hours fully fleshing out your ideas before you share them with a potential team in November. You’ll find a benefactor in December. Family events forward joint interests in 2014. Gemini and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 22, 13, 29 and 48.

by Chad Carpenter

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll deal in this conundrum today: Struggling to prove your deservedness really only proves that you believe you don’t deserve it. Believe in your worth, and the struggle ends. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The phone will keep buzzing, and the emails will keep rolling in -- that’s just modern life. Don’t be bullied by your devices. You’re still in charge. Just because it rings or dings doesn’t mean you have to respond. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Some people can sit and do nothing at all. You rarely see the value in this, and you see laziness as a fault, not a skill. However, there is great benefit to doing nothing at all for a stretch of today. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You will notice the energy that’s directed at you, as you are very attractive to people who are outside of your circle. You may talk and open up a bit, but remain protective of your time. It’s a most valuable resource. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). People seem to expect something from you that is different from what you’d like to give -- a clue that you may be mismatched to your environment. The way to find out is to explore a bit and see whether things aren’t better “over there.” VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may do nontraditional things with your loved one from time to time, but your relationship itself is quite traditional in terms of the role you expect each other to play. This works extremely well for you now. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There is always a simple solution and the hard way. Being relaxed helps you see and apply the simple solution. If you are not relaxed, you’ll notice only the hard way and mistakenly assume it’s the only route. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It’s one thing to be surprised by a sudden bout of good fortune and quite another to expect it. The latter is demotivating. If you’re going to give someone a gift, let it be a surprise. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re a fast learner. You may get it wrong once, but you won’t get it wrong the same way twice. You’ll switch tactics at least three times before the day is over.

––––––– ALMANAC –––––––


Today is Tuesday, Sept. 17, the 260th day of 2013. There are 105 days left in the year.


Dial 2

Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 17, 1862, more than 3,600 men were killed, many more wounded, captured or left missing, in the Civil War Battle of Antietam (an-TEE’tum) in Maryland; although the battle itself proved inconclusive, it effectively halted the Confederates’ advance into Maryland. On this date: In 1787, the Constitution of the United States was completed and signed by a majority of delegates attending the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. In 1908, Lt. Thomas E. Selfridge of the U.S. Army Signal Corps became the first person to die in the crash of a powered aircraft, the Wright Flyer, at Fort Myer, Va., just outside Washington, D.C. In 1911, Calbraith P. Rodgers set off from Sheepshead Bay, N.Y., aboard a Wright biplane in an attempt to become the first flier to travel the width of the United States. (The 49-day journey required 69 stops before ending in Pasadena, Calif.) In 1937, the likeness of President Abraham Lincoln’s head was dedicated at Mount Rushmore. In 1939, the Soviet Union invaded Poland during World War II, more than two weeks after Nazi Germany had launched its assault. In 1947, James V. Forrestal was sworn in as the first U.S. Secretary of Defense. In 1959, Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev traveled by train from Washington, D.C., to New York City, where he received a low-key welcome from New Yorkers. A groundbreaking ceremony was held for Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. In 1962, U.S. space officials announced the selection of nine new astronauts, including Neil A. Armstrong, who became the first man to step onto the moon. In 1971, citing health reasons, Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black, 85, retired. (Black, who was succeeded by Lewis F. Powell Jr., died eight days after making his announcement.) In 1972, the Korean War comedy-drama “M-AS-H” premiered on CBS. In 1978, after meeting at Camp David, Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin (men-AH’-kem BAY’-gihn) and Egyptian President Anwar Sadat signed a framework for a peace treaty. In 1986, the Senate confirmed the nomination of William H. Rehnquist to become the 16th chief justice of the United States. In 1987, the city of Philadelphia, birthplace of the U.S. Constitution, threw a big party to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the historic document. Five years ago: Defense Secretary Robert Gates met with Afghan President Hamid Karzai and offered the people of Afghanistan his “personal regrets” for U.S. airstrikes that had killed civilians and said he would try to improve the accuracy of air warfare. One year ago: NATO said it was scaling back operations with Afghan soldiers and policemen to lower the risk of insider attacks and reduce local tensions after an anti-Islam film was blamed for setting off protests in Afghanistan.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, September 17, 2013— Page 29


Dear Annie: Last year, my husband and I attended my cousin’s annual summer barbeque. After we arrived, I looked for a place to tie up our dog in the backyard and noticed a few dead rats. They appeared to have been there for some time. I made mention of this to my cousin’s husband, but he made no attempt to remove them even though they were only a few steps away from the barbeque pit. I tied my dog several feet away from the dead rats. Later, when we returned home, our dog started scratching. This continued for several days until we noticed his fur was falling out. I believe he contracted mange from the dead rats. We’ve been invited to their “last nice weather barbecue,” but I am reluctant to go. My husband says we should go regardless, but I feel that if they don’t care to get rid of the dead rats in their backyard, they shouldn’t expect to entertain guests there. And also, the guest bathroom is never clean when we visit. What do you think? -- Disgusted in the Midwest Dear Disgusted: We think your cousin and her husband are not particularly meticulous about their cleaning and don’t care if you notice. And while your dog may have contracted mange from something in their yard, there’s no way to be certain now. You can contact the health department in your city and report the conditions (most municipalities like to know if there is an increased rat population). But that may not solve your problem, which is whether or not to attend another barbecue there. We say give them one last chance -- but don’t bring your dog. Dear Annie: My 55-year-old niece hasn’t held a job in more than five years. She is bipolar and on medication and is also dependent on painkillers. Her mother kept her husband’s ashes in a box for years, and after her mother died 13 years ago, my niece told me she “just couldn’t let him go.”

This man is not her biological father. But he was a Korean War veteran and deserves to be interred with full military honors at the Great Lakes National Cemetery along with his wife’s remains. It was his wife’s wish to be buried with her husband. Even the husband’s surviving brother and sister have expressed shock and disbelief that his cremains are still in a closet. They want him to be given a proper burial. The military cemetery will provide a niche, a plaque and a service, all of which would cost my niece nothing. Yet, she won’t do it. Is this the behavior of a normal human being? Or is she being selfish and controlling? -- Speaking for Another Lost Veteran Dear Speaking: Well, if she is bipolar and on painkillers, she may not be entirely rational about this. We assume your niece inherited whatever belonged to her mother, including her stepfather’s ashes. And although he was not her biological father, she still may have been very attached to him. Instead of being angry and demanding, consider being kind and understanding. Sympathize with her desire to keep the ashes. Explain how she would be honoring her stepfather by giving him a military burial, and that her mother would wish to be with her husband. You may not think she deserves such consideration, but you are more likely to get the result you want if she doesn’t feel obligated to defend herself. Dear Annie: I laughed at the letter from “Wondering in Clinton Township,” whose sister gets all bent out of shape when she receives a letter addressed to “Aunt Frances” instead of “Mrs. Frances Smith.” Right now, I am holding a letter addressed to “Grandma Bobbie” and another addressed to “Aunt Grandma.” I really don’t care how it’s addressed, just as long as they write to me. -- Fort Myers, Fla.
