Laconia schools eyeing additional $1.8M interest-free loan By Gail OBer

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — The Laconia School District is eying an additional interest-free federal loan for $1.8-million dollars that could be used for more renovations within the district’s buildings. The QZAB or Qualified Zone Academy Bond was the federal program that made

$6.5 million available to the district for the Huot Regiona Technical Education Center expansion/renovation. Business Administrator Ed Emond told the School Board’s Budget and Personnel Committee last night that he was approached by the N.H. Department of Education about a month ago and told that no school districts had come forward

to apply for the balance of the federal loan fund. The loan program is limited to inside upgrades and doesn’t allow for new construction. In order to qualify for QZAB, Emond said a school district needs three things — an “academy”, a 10 percent local match, and a viable working collaborative with comsee LOAN page 10

LACONIA — The Police Department’s community room has out of service since July, when it flunked an air quality test performed throughout the building. The test was in response to some concerns, said Parks and Recreation Department Director Kevin Dunleavy, who administers the city’s building maintenance effort. Lt. Al Lessard said the community room, in the northwest corner of the building, was built on a cement slab that is near the water table level. Like many other buildings in New England, the extreme high amounts of humidity this past summer contributed to the bad poor test results. “It was like Florida in New Hampshire,” Lessard said when commenting yesterday on this past summer’s humidity. He said that when the police station was constructed about 10 years ago, it was not part of the then building codes to insulate the concrete, which this summer led to damp carpets and a few drooping ceiling tiles. “Until we figure out see AIR page 10

California mom charged with killing her kids asks for death penalty

SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — A woman charged with killing her 13-year-old autistic son and 9-year-old daughter in the midst of a custody dispute asked a judge for the death penalty Tuesday during her first court appearance since her arrest. Looking disheveled, her head down and hands behind her back, 42-year-old Marilyn Edge appeared by video link for an arraignment on two counts of murder with special circumstances. When Orange County Superior Court Judge Craig Robison asked if she wanted her arraignment postponed to Oct. 25, Edge twice said, “Only if you promise me the death penalty.” Edge could be eligible for the death penalty if convicted. The judge postponed her arraignment. A phone call seeking comment from Edge’s attorney, Deputy Public Defender Arlene Speiser, was not immediately returned. One special circumstance allegation filed by prosecutors claims the children were poisoned. Deputy District Attorsee MOM page 7

U.S. poverty rate stuck at 15%, record 46.5M people WASHINGTON (AP) — The nation’s poverty rate remained stuck at 15 percent last year despite America’s slowly reviving economy, a discouraging lack of improvement for the record 46.5 million poor and an unwelcome benchmark for President Barack Obama’s recovery plans. More than 1 in 7 Americans were living in poverty, not statistically different from the 46.2 million of 2011 and the sixth straight year the rate had failed to improve, the Census Bureau reported Tuesday. Median income for the nation’s households was

$51,017, also unchanged from the previous year after two consecutive annual declines, while the share of people without health insurance did improve but only a bit, from 15.7 percent to 15.4 percent. “We’re in the doldrums, with high poverty and inequality as the new normal for the foreseeable future,” said Timothy Smeeding, an economics professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison who specializes in income inequality. “The fact we’ve seen no real recovery in employment and wages means we’ve just flatlined.”

Mississippi had the highest share of its residents in poverty, at 22 percent, according to rough calculations by the Census Bureau. It was followed by Louisiana, New Mexico and Arkansas. On the other end of the scale, New Hampshire had the lowest share, at 8.1 percent. The last significant decline in the national poverty rate came in 2006, during the Bush administration and before the housing bubble burst and the recession hit. In 2011, the rate dipped to 15 percent from see POVERTY page 9

CONCORD (AP) — New U.S. Census figures show New Hampshire as having the lowest share of poor people in the nation. The Census Bureau reported Tuesday that 46.5 million Americans — or more than 1 in 7 — were living in poverty last

year. That makes the sixth straight year the nation’s poverty rate has stood still at 15 percent. In New Hampshire, the poverty rate for 2012 was 8.1 percent, the nation’s lowest. Mississippi had the highest share of poor

people, at 22 percent, followed by Louisiana, New Mexico and Arkansas. For the last year, the official poverty line was an annual income of $23,492 for a family of four.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The gunman in the mass shootings at the Washington Navy Yard, Aaron Alexis, had a history of violent outbursts, was at least twice accused of firing guns in anger and was in the early stages of treatment for serious mental problems, according to court records and U.S. law enforcement officials. But Alexis apparently managed to exploit seams in the nation’s patchwork of complicated gun laws designed to keep weapons out of the hands of dangerous people. He was able to buy a shotgun in

Virginia with out-of-state identification, even though that would have prevented him from buying a handgun. It is illegal for gun dealers to sell handguns to such out-of-state buyers, but the Firearms Owners’ Protection Act, passed by Congress in 1986, opened up interstate sales for shotguns and rifles. Virginia gun laws require only that an out-of-state buyer show valid identification, pass a background check and otherwise abide by state laws in order to buy a shotgun in the state. Alexis was never prosecuted for the

two misdemeanors involving guns. Alexis bought the shotgun at Sharpshooters Small Arms Range in Lorton, Va. on Saturday, according to a statement from the attorney for the gun range. Michael Slocum said in an email that Alexis rented a rifle, bought bullets and used the range before buying the shotgun and 24 shells. Slocum said Alexis passed a federal background check. Law enforcement officials visited the range Monday, reviewing the store’s video see SHOTGUN page 10

Russia opposes mention of use of force DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Russia insisted Tuesday that a U.N. Security Council resolution governing Syria’s handling of its chemical weapons not allow the use of force, but it suggested that could change if Damascus reneges on the deal to give up its stockpile. The main Syrian opposition coalition, meanwhile, urged the international community to take swift action against the regime of President Bashar Assad in response to a U.N. finding that the nerve agent sarin was used in a deadly attack near the capital last month. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said his country “spoke clearly” about rejecting the use of force when the chemical weapons agreement was worked out Saturday in Geneva between Washington and Moscow. The plan calls for an inventory of Syria’s

chemical weapons within a week, with all components of the program out of the country or destroyed by mid-2014. But if signs emerge that Syria is not fulfilling the agreement or there are reports of further chemical weapons use, “then the Security Council will examine the situation,” Lavrov said, suggesting the issue could be reconsidered. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Kimoon said a resolution on the U.S.Russia deal must be enforceable, telling reporters that the “most effective” way is under Chapter 7 of the U.N. Charter. That deals with threats to international peace and security and has provisions for enforcement by military or non-military means, such as sanctions. While in principle all Security Council resolutions are legally binding, Ban said, “in reality, we need clear guidelines under Chapter 7.”

Mad about spying, Brazil look to break away from America’s online influence RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Brazil plans to divorce itself from the U.S.centric Internet over Washington’s widespread online spying, a move that many experts fear will be a potentially dangerous first step toward fracturing a global network built with minimal interference by governments. President Dilma Rousseff ordered a series of measures aimed at greater Brazilian online independence and security following revelations that the U.S. National Security Agency intercepted her communications, hacked into the stateowned Petrobras oil company’s network and spied on Brazilians who entrusted their personal data to U.S. tech companies such as Facebook and Google. The leader is so angered by the espionage that on Tuesday she postponed next month’s scheduled trip to Washington, where she was to be honored with a state dinner. Internet security and policy experts say the Brazilian government’s reaction to information leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden is understandable, but warn it could set the Internet on a course of Balkanization.

“The global backlash is only beginning and will get far more severe in coming months,” said Sascha Meinrath, director of the Open Technology Institute at the Washington-based New America Foundation think tank. “This notion of national privacy sovereignty is going to be an increasingly salient issue around the globe.” While Brazil isn’t proposing to bar its citizens from U.S.-based Web services, it wants their data to be stored locally as the nation assumes greater control over Brazilians’ Internet use to protect them from NSA snooping. The danger of mandating that kind of geographic isolation, Meinrath said, is that it could render inoperable popular software applications and services and endanger the Internet’s open, interconnected structure. The effort by Latin America’s biggest economy to digitally isolate itself from U.S. spying not only could be costly and difficult, it could encourage repressive governments to seek greater technical control over the Internet to crush free expression at home, experts say.

Mother & daughter involved (on opposite sides) of brawl that results in first-degree assault charges against 1 man By Gail OBer

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — A local man is being held on $15,000 cash-only bail for allegedly hitting a man in the head with a beer bottle and an expandable baton during a fight on September 13. Kyle Violette, 27, of 76 Endicott St. North Apt. 4 is charged with two counts of first-degree assault — one for the beer bottle and one for the expandable baton. Laconia Police said Violette was arrested Monday night by Farmington Police and turned over to Laconia Police, who held an outstanding warrant. Violette appeared by video in the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division yesterday and his public defender made no bail argument but reserved Violette’s right to a probable cause and bail hearing at a future time. According to police affidavits, officers were called to 1184 Weirs Boulevard for a disturbance involving four people, two men and two women. The two women are mother and daughter and are apparently the girlfriends of the two men. The older of the two women is involved with Violette. When police arrived, they found a male victim with an open head wound and the beginnings of two black eyes. Police said he “had blood all over his body” and there was blood “all over the porch and stairs.” The man’s girlfriend had what police said were

red marks on her neck and ears. Her right eye was beginning to swell. The victim told police his girlfriend’s mother started punching her daughter in the face when the younger women mentioned a prior burglary allegedly committed by Violette. He said he tried to pull the women apart but Violette jumped in and hit him on the head with “beer bottles and a drinking glass.” The two men began wrestling and when they fell down the porch stairs, the victim’s leg got caught in the railing and Violette allegedly began choking him. The victim’s girlfriend told police that at this point the two men separated but started fighting again when Violette ran upstairs to help her (fend off her mother). This time, said the girlfriend, the victim was getting the upper hand on Violette so the mother came running down the stairs and began punching the victim in the face until he and Violette separated again. After separation, Violette allegedly ran to his car, grabbed an expandable baton and hit the victim over the head, splitting his scalp open. The victim and his girlfriend both told police that Violette and his girlfriend (the mother) left in the car with their two children and drove away. At some point, city police caught up with Violette, who is on parole, and charged him with the two firstdegree assaults. Violette, according to affidavits, has a lengthy and violent criminal record including theft, three convictions of resisting arrest, a conviction for possession of drugs, two violation of probation or parole convictions, three convictions for disobeying a police officer, one conviction for reckless conduct, and four convictions for simple assault.

Northern Pass opposition gearing up for federal hearing in Plymouth on Tues. By Mike Mortensen FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

NEW HAMPTON — With a series of key federal hearings on Northern Pass a week or less away, about 100 people opposed to the major power line project were told Monday evening that opponents need to turn up in large numbers to let federal officials know the extent of the opposition. The message was delivered during a two-hour forum organized and hosted by state Sen. Jeannie Forrester (R-Meredith), one of a number of state elected officials who are opposed to the proposed 186-mile electric transmission line through New Hampshire carrying hydropower from Quebec to New England. The first of the hearings being held by the federal Department of Energy is scheduled for Monday at the Grappone Conference Center in Concord from 6 to 9 p.m., with the second taking place on Tuesday at Silver Center for the Arts at Plymouth State University from 5 to 8 p.m. Other hearings will be held Wednesday and Thursday in Whitefield and Colebrook respectively. “We would not have sustained this for as long as we have if it was not for all your efforts to tell the Northern Pass people that this is not the right thing for New Hampshire,” Forrester told the audience of gathered at New Hampton School’s McEvoy Theater. Will Abbott, vice president of the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests, said he hoped that the Department of Energy would take a close look at alternative ways to construct the power line,

and in particular to possible ways the line could be placed underground. One of the biggest complaints about the $1.6 billion Northern Pass project is that the installation of more than 1,500 towers — some as tall as 165 feet — would spoil the scenery in much of New Hampshire’s mountainous North Country, where the economy is heavily dependent on tourism. Northern Pass supporters say the 1,200 megawatts of Canadian hydroelectric power would reduce the need for electricity from fossil fuel sources that produce carbon emissions and would provide tax revenue from Northern Pass facilities to the communities the line passes through and would provide jobs to New Hampshire. But opponents counter the power line’s towers along the route would rise above the trees and would damage New Hampshire’s environment, lower property values and make the state less attractive to tourists. “If money is the arbiter, they will win,” Abbott said of Northern Pass. “If people (are) the ultimate arbiter, then we will win. We have the power to stop this from happening,” he said, adding that the Forest Society was prepared to fight the project in court if necessary. Other panelists at the forum were Susan Arnold of the Appalachian Mountain Club and real estate broker Andy Smith. Smith, a partner in the firm of Smith and Peabody, said since the Northern Pass project was unveiled almost three years it has had a “chilling effect” on real estate values in areas that are within sight of

where the line would run. He acknowledged that was not possible to say precisely how much values have been hurt, explaining: “It’s hard to quantify a non-sale.” But he said that people looking to buy immediately lose interest in a particular property when they hear the Northern Pass route is nearby. “People come up here because they love what we have, and they do not want to see it spoiled.” Arnold, who is the AMC’s conservation director, said that revisions to the Northern Pass route, including burying eight miles of the line in the far-north Connecticut Lakes Region, do not go far enough to address the concerns being raised by the project’s critics. Arnold faulted Northern Pass for not putting forth more extensive alternative plans for the project, including the burying the power lines altogether. She said the fact similar projects being planned in Maine and New York included buried lines was proof that such an alternative was feasible for Northern Pass. Arnold further noted that Northern Pass requires permission from the U.S. Forest Service to run lines through parts of the White Mountain National Forest, and so it will need to present alternatives, regardless of their cost, for the Forest Service to consider in deciding whether to give the utility permission to cross federal land. The purpose of the DOE hearings is to analyze the potential environmental impacts associated with the project in light of the proposed changes Northern Pass announced back in June.

Pop the cork, we’ve been saved from Larry Summers The week opened nicely with news that Lawrence Summers had taken his name out of the running for the Federal Reserve chairman job. We won’t be subjected to the notoriously unpleasant Summers denigrating those who would distinguish between Wall Street’s interests and the country’s. Still more gratifying is that Democrats, and not just the liberal ones, put the kibosh on President Obama’s mystifying desire to put this Wall StreetWashington hybrid in charge of our central banking system. Sen. Jon Tester, moderate Democrat from Montana, thank you for pulling the plug. Not that President Obama consulted Tester, even though he sits on the Senate Banking Committee. The White House found out on Friday that Tester would not support Summers’ nomination after some enterprising staffer thought to call him and ask. Tester apparently felt that as a creature of Wall Street, Summers would be insensitive to the needs of community banks serving Main Street. Obama issued an inexplicable tribute to Summers’ alleged rescue of the U.S. economy. “Larry was a critical member of my team as we faced down the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression,” Obama’s statement read, “and it was in no small part because of his expertise, wisdom and leadership that we wrestled the economy back to growth and made the kind of progress we are seeing today.” Another view is that Summers was one of the reasons for the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. As an adviser to President Clinton, he helped block regulation of the derivatives market. Fortunes were made in the speculation that ensued. Then the market collapsed and, with it, much of the economy. In 1996, the Treasury was about to release a report suggesting that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac be privatized — that is, an end to the implied taxpayer guarantee of the mortgage giants’ securities. ThenDeputy Treasury Secretary Summers basically forced the Treasury’s

economists to rewrite the report. You see, his boss, Robert Rubin, was a pal of Jim Johnson’s, the Fannie Mae CEOmaking many millions off the sweet ability to push his risk onto the taxpayers. “Nobody has bullied me in my adult life the way that Larry did on this one,” a Treasury staffer told Gretchen Morgenson, reporting for her book “Reckless Endangerment.” Fannie Mae jumped into the subprime mortgage frenzy. Twelve years later, it had to be saved with a massive taxpayer bailout. Elevated to Treasury secretary in 1999, Summers cleared the road for the coming economic debacle by helping strike down Glass-Steagall, the Depression-era law forbidding commercial banks to engage in the investment business. He and others celebrated with Champagne and a cake inscribed “Glass-Steagall, R.I.P. 1933-1999.” At the time, an opponent of the change, then-Sen. Byron Dorgan, Democrat of North Dakota, offered this warning: “I think we will look back in 10 years’ time and say we should not have done this, but we did because we forgot the lessons of the past and that that which is true in the 1930s is true in 2010.” Dorgan’s prediction was off by just two years. “The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression” started in 2007. Of late, Summers has been busily scooping up millions on Wall Street. He consults for Citigroup and a huge hedge fund and serves on numerous boards. One of them, the Lending Club, links online investors to borrowers, a clever means of evading regulations. He gives speeches at six figures a pop. His price may fall a bit, now that he won’t be Fed chair, but he’s doing fine. As for us, let’s be glad that Larry Summers is out of the running. Any cake and Champagne left?

She has written for such diverse publications as The New York Times, Harper’s Bazaar and Institutional Investor.)

LETTERS Planning Commission forums shouldn’t be held during workday To The Daily Sun, What is happening at the Lakes Regional Planning Commission in Meredith? A community of towns are invited to attend a forum on Workforce Housing in the middle of the day on Sept. 27, between the hours of 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. This is suppose to be a public outreach program! I have e-mailed Mr. Jerry Coogan. AICP, program manager for Granite State Futures, the program of the LPPC, and CEDS on two separate occasions — Sept. 1 and Sept. 4. In the first e-mail, I asked for the format of this workshop, and if the public is allowed questions. As of Sept. 15, I have not received acknowledgement from Mr. Coogan. In my e-mail of Sept. 4, I wrote: “Please explain to me why this meeting is from 11 a.m.to 2:30 p.m. The hours discriminate against the ‘Working Class’ in the towns, therefore there will be less input from ‘WE the PEOPLE’. I think the time should be changed to accommodate the ‘Working Class’”. As of Sept. 15, I have not received acknowl-

edgement from Mr. Coogan! This appears to be an illegal “public meeting” because most people who pay taxes and work are unable to attend. Can people walk away from their jobs at 11 a.m.? Why would you have a public meeting without a majority of the people? Under your enabling statute (RSA 36:47, General Powers & Duties), the Regional Planning Commissions are required “to make a good faith effort and respond to our communities”. Having meetings during the lunch hour is not a good faith effort, particularly when you’ve had other meetings in the evening when more taxpayers can attend. Those who show up are not a representative of the majority of taxpayers in any community. It is offensive that you would hold this important hearing at a time which is only marginally consistent with due process of law and suggests that you want to do an end-run around important public input. The meeting should be rescheduled for an evening time. Rosemary Landry Meredith

I suggest “3-Marine security guardBenghazi attack puts spotlight on Marine embassy guards, don’t blame Marines here is who is supposed to protect U.S. diplomats. I am aware of the military names you mentioned. I will just mention it. Col. Allen West is a disaster which happened. The Army got rid of him, Florida got rid of him, so he and others got on Fox News to continue the hate

go back and tell you that Vietnam and Iraq where two of the biggest mistakes made by past presidents. I can also say that the Reagan administrations supplying Iraq with WMDs during Iran-Iraq war was a disaster also. It is also a fact that no president can please all the people all the time. I can assure you Russ that I get a sick feeling every time an American gets killed in harm’s way. What I can’t understand is why you and your friends don’t value the death of a American military person as you do an American diplomat. Don’t you think the family of the military deserve the same as a diplomats family? I am sure that when Congress investigators go in secret session that they have answers to many questions that they don’t share with the public. Finally Russ,I hope you will check the references I mention and though we disagree on everything, you will at least understand my point of view. Henry Osmer Hill


THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, September 17, 2013 — Page 7

LETTERS Remember Sgt. Bergdahl on National POW/MIA Recognition Day To The Daily Sun, Friday, September 20 is National POW/MIA Recognition Day. Over the past years this day has gone unrecognized by the media nationally at most levels. The reason for that could be discussed and speculated at great length. Any discussion would have to fall under the headings of,”Faith, Trust, Truth, Responsibility and Accountability”. For those American service men and women who were captured and returned, we can only be thankful beyond words. Prayers were answered. For those who died in captivity, blessings to them and their families. The only way we can say we are thankful for your sacrifice is to live our lives by doing everything we can on behalf of those who may find themselves in the same situation today or in the future while serving in our name. Today, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, POW Afghanistan, captured June 2009. ALL evidence shows he is still alive. Even though the tribe holding him

(Haqqain) was hit by three drone attacks just a couple of weeks ago and has been stated that leaders of that tribe were killed. There is “much” information known of this American POW and his situation including “where he is”. Has and is everything being done to “Bring Him Home Alive”? I guess that’s where the words Faith, Trust, Truth, Responsibility and Accountability come in. If Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was YOUR son would you have confidence that everything was being done? Would you have Faith and Trust in the DPMO that is under investigation for failing to have done its job for at least the past 25years? Would you believe everything you were told read or heard about Sgt. Bergdahl or what was being done on his behalf? Do you believe ANY Department in DC or Congress would be responsible or accountable in dealing with this issue? And the band played on! Bob Jones Meredith

Show your support for our Salvation Army by taking the plunge To The Daily Sun, A few weeks ago, columnist Bob Meade wrote an excellent piece entitled “Respect....Make it Contagious”. In that article, Meade traced the beginnings of today’s Salvation Army and its founder, William Booth. The article continued to discuss the many good works of today’s Salvation Army, especially our Lakes Region office under the expert leadership of Captains Steven and Sally Warren. Our local branch provides free meals, summer camp experiences for needy children, work opportunities through the Thrift Shop, a food pantry and the Carey House, the homeless shelter for men, women and families. Naturally, outreach programs of this magnitude require substantial funding. Columnist Meade, throughout the article, encourages his readers to support our local Salvation Army and provides information about how to do that. In addition to donating

directly, there is an annual opportunity to show your support while enjoying a fun, family-oriented event and friendly competition. I’m referring to the Annual Salvation Army Turkey Plunge which will celebrate its 9th year this November 23rd. Hardy Plungers raise pledges for the “privilege” of plunging into Lake Opechee that day. This family-oriented fundraising event is presided over by our own mascot, Tommy Turkey, and comes complete with costumes, crazy warm-up exercises, a post-Plunge luncheon and raffle prizes. Bob Meade encouraged everyone to support the good works of the Salvation Army. On November 23rd, you’ll have that chance by joining us at Opechee Beach for the 9th Turkey Plunge. More details are on-line at www.salvationarmy.org/laconia. See you at the Lake. Don Morrissey, Chairman Salvation Army Turkey Plunge

Ms. Merwin’s letter was disrespectful and showed intolerance To The Daily Sun, A lot has been written in this paper about Representative Huot’s tribute to Bob Kingsbury. At the time, although I did not believe his comments to be funny, I chose to interpret Rep. Huot’s statement to be an attempt at humor. I thought the overall tone of the letter was respectful, and that Rep. Huot was poking fun at his conservative foe. However, Cathy Merwin’s letter does not deserve the benefit of doubt. Ms. Merwin’s letter is disrespectful, and ironically reinforces a truth that conservatives have known for a long time. Liberals are generally intolerant of conservatives and conservative ideas. Ms. Merwin didn’t like Mr. Kingsbury because he thought differ-

ently than her. Although admitting that Mr. Kingsbury was a gentleman, she tore into him because his ideas did not subscribe to tenets taken from the liberal playbook. Her intolerance was such that Mr. Kingsbury should not have been afforded the right to even express his ideas. We owe Mr. Kingsbury a tremendous debt. He was willing to pay the ultimate sacrifice for his country, for which every American should be grateful. Unfortunately, Ms. Merwin will be known for besmirching a national hero, but I guess that’s okay since she didn’t agree with his ideas anyway. Keith Noe Laconia

Worsman to ask Legislature to define relationship between Belknap County Convention & Board of Commissioners By Michael Kitch

CONCORD — Rep. Colette Worsman (R-Meredith) is filing legislation intended to delineate the respective authority of the Beknap County Convention and the Belknap County Commission over the preparation and management of the county budget. Worsman has requested a bill “relative to transfer of county appropriations in Belknap County” be drafted and introduced in the New Hampshire House of Representatives in January. She said yesterday that she is seeking “anything that will make the process smoother, clearer and define the roles of each branch of county government, the convention, as the legislative branch, and the commission as the executive branch.” Throughout the 2013 budget process the Republican majority of the convention has insisted that the convention can rewrite the budget proposed by the commission by adding or deleting, raising or lowering appropriations for particular line items. And, in the course of managing the budget, the commission may only reallocate funds from one line to another with the approval of the Executive Committee of the convention. With equal resolve the commissioners claim that the authority of the convention is limited to itemizing appropriations in 13 categories accord

with the “Statement of County Appropriations and Revenue as Voted,” or MS-42 form, submitted to the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration. Within these categories, the commission contends it can distribute funds among different lines without the approval of the convention as long as expenditures do not exceed the total appropriations of the particular categories. Last month, the convention, against Worsman’s recommendation, voted not to file suit in Belknap County Superior Court against the commission in an effort to resolve the dispute. Worsman said that the bill would apply specifically and exclusively to Belknap County, explained that “it has been made abundantly clear that among the 10 counties there are diverse opinions and approaches to this issue.” She noted that a similar statute that prescribes a budget process for Hillsborough County was enacted in 1978 and serves as a precedent for legislation bearing on a single county. She anticipates that her bill to include elements of the law for Hillsborough County. Worsman said that she has not yet consulted with other members of the county convention, but emphasized “I believe strongly that this is a bipartisan issue. I would welcome the support of anyone who is interested in clarifying the process.”

MOM from page 2 ney Sonia Balleste would only say there was evidence of poisoning found in the hotel room where the bodies of Edge’s daughter Faith and son Jaelen were discovered. An autopsy has been performed, but toxicology tests are pending. Asked about her reaction to Edge’s request for the death penalty, Balleste said: “The only death penalty I’ve seen her be efficient at was the death of her children. All the rest is just talk.” Edge, of Scottsdale, Ariz., lost custody of the children on Wednesday in a Georgia case then texted her ex-husband, Mark Edge, two days later that she would bring the children back on Sunday, his attorney Marian Weeks said. The children were found Saturday in the Santa Ana hotel. Mark Edge was informed about the death of the children early Sunday by Atlanta police and was taken to a hospital for duress. Marilyn Edge was driving a car that crashed Saturday into an electrical box outside a shopping complex in Costa Mesa. She refused to get

out of the car and tried to choke herself with an electrical cord as rescuers attempted to free her, Santa Ana police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna said. Police found propane in the car but wouldn’t say whether there was a suicide note. Authorities said Edge told investigators they could find her children’s bodies at the hotel. The Edges were married for less than 10 years and divorced in December 2007, Weeks said. Marilyn Edge claimed her former husband, who routinely traveled to Afghanistan where he worked as a contractor, failed to make child support payments, according to court records. Marilyn Edge was given full custody of her children in October 2009. In September, a judge reduced child support payments and ordered joint custody. Marilyn Edge moved to Arizona shortly after the judge’s order, saying she was getting a job transfer. At a Sept. 11 hearing in Georgia, a judge found that Marilyn Edge was alienating her children from her exhusband and said he should be given full custody, Weeks said.

PASS from page 5 mental impact statement is intended to provide the analysis to support a Forest Service decision on whether to issue a special use permit within the White Mountain National Forest. Forrester said opposition to Northern Pass has drawn bipartisan support and that lawmakers from the southern part of the state are now beginning to raise concerns about its

long-term impact. “We’re beginning to see we can’t just turn our back on this,” she said. Forrester expressed confidence that critics would prevail, and she said that even if the project clears all the federal hurdles, she intends to use the state’s newly created power project site evaluation process to block it from being built.

History of New England food will be on the table at special dinner in Center Harbor on Friday night By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

CENTER HARBOR — Though they walk in their footsteps, contemporary New Englanders enjoy a diet that is far different from that of the Europeans who colonized the region centuries ago. Foods served on local tables have been affected by changing religious views, trade, technology and politics. Even so, some dishes have managed to hold on to their place on the dinner table through the generations, giving today’s diners a direct link to the Puritans who arrived nearly 400 years ago. The question of what those early New Englanders ate was one that fascinated cookbook author and cooking instructor Barbara Lauterbach, who combined her twin passions of history and food to conduct enough research into the matter to give a presentation on the topic to the Center Harbor Historical Society. The idea also captured the imagination of Amy Elfline, owner of restaurants The Mug and The Bay, who mined Lauterbach’s findings to compile a menu for one of her chef’s night dinners. On Friday night, from 5 to 9 p.m., diners at The Bay will be able to sample a selection of dishes that have nourished hungry New England residents for centuries. Lauterbach, who was assisted in her research by her daughter, Elisabeth Laskin, associate dean at Harvard Summer School, found that the Puritans who arrived in Massachusetts in the 17th Century existed on a bland diet, one that was resulting as much from religious philosophy as it was from necessity. “They were strongly conscientious, religion AIR from page one what we need to do, we decided not to use the community room,” Lessard said. The Police Department community room is used by many different clubs and agencies in Laconia. All of the other spaces in the Police Department are secure and not routinely available for non-police use. Lessard said that other spaces in the city, like those at the Laconia Public Library and in the Laconia City Hall have hosted the programs that traditionally use the community room. The Laconia Police Commission typically meets in the community room. Since July, the commission has met in the City Council chambers as it will tomorrow at 3 p.m. The Laconia Police Community Room was not the only victim of an unusually rainy and humid summer season. The agency with the most severe case of the “humidity blues” is the Winnisquam Regional Middle School that had to delay the start of school by two weeks. One wing of the three-wing school remains closed while the mold and humidity problems are fixed. So far the city has spent about $6,000 diagnosing the problem in the Police Department and adjusting the the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system to improve the air quality in the entire building said Dunleavy. The funds came from the department’s building maintenance line. Three-thousand dollars went to Rist-Frost, Shumway Engineering to diagnose the problem and so far, $3,000 has gone to Central Controls, the company the city uses for all its HVAC-related needs. Dunleavy said the entire police building is prone to humidity challenges because of the high water table upon which it is built, but the community room is the only place where there was an acute problem. “We’re going to try and clean the rugs and the ceiling tiles,” Dunleavy said. “If that doesn’t work, we’ll look at a different floor.” He said the police department may not know if the adjustments made to the HVAC system work until next spring and summer when the rain and humidity returns. He said they’ll retest the air as the weather cools and dries to determine if they’ll use the community room throughout the winter.

affected their diet greatly,” said Lauterbach. When it came to their food, Puritans equated the bland with the pious, she said. They learned to grow corn from the American Indians they encountered, she said, and those who lived near the coast took advantage of lobsters and an abundance of cod, which was salted as a means of preservation. Parsnips and carrots, brought from Europe, were mixed with native squashes and vegetables. Lauterbach found that a staple of the diet was a kind of legume referred to as “field pease.” These had little in common to sweet green peas, instead they were small, white beans that could be dried for later use and the boiled until they disintegrated into a pastelike porridge. The dish would be consumed hot or cold, with little to no seasoning, for days at a time. Indeed, the saying “Pease porridge hot, pease porridge cold, pease porridge in the pot, nine days old” was as much a menu plan as it was a nursery rhyme. The porridge would often have been eaten with a piece of brown bread. Especially for the first several generations of New Englanders, white flour would have been reserved for only special occasions or for the wealthiest of residents. Instead, this bread would have been made from a dough of wheat flour mixed with the more readily-available corn meal. It’s fortunate for contemporary eaters that time marched onward from the bland pot of porridge. Lauterbach said that once cooks relaxed their Puritan ideals and trade routes made the ingredients accessible, they began adding saltpork, molasses and other spices to their beanpots, resulting in the much more palatable baked beans so closely associsee next page LOAN from page one munity partners. In Laconia’s case, the district has already started a Wellness Academy and it has raised $1,050,000 in either money or in-kind donations from its community partners. Emond said the 10 percent match for the first QZAB will take $650,000 of the million already raised, leaving $355,000 — $180,000 of which can be used for the 10 percent match for a new zerointerest loan. The drawbacks, said Emond, are the payments on a new bond will add $78,260 per year in additional expenditures to the school district’s bottom line for 23 years, which may or may not be viable under the city’s property tax cap and self-imposed debt service restrictions. The next step, said Emond, is to have the School Board Facilities Committee meet and set the priorities for any additional renovations. Meanwhile, Superintendent Terri Forsten said she would be meeting with City Manager Scott Myers to assess what is possible and practical as far as the city and its other departments are concerned. Like the QZAB grant that partially funded the Huot Center project, a new application for long-term debt, including QZAB, must be approved by the City Council — which may have other priorities for capital improvements and/or debt service in other city departments. The other option is for the School District to stay within its existing budget by saving $78,000 annually from its operating budget. Some of the ideas for renovations and upgrades floated at last night’s Budget and Personnel meeting include ventilation and heat distribution at the high school, air conditioning in the high school library and auditorium and fire protection and a sprinkler system at the high school. Emond said the Facilities Committee will be scheduling a meeting within the next two weeks so it can prioritize any suggested renovations and return to the next School Board meeting with a solid list for its consideration.

T-N FIRE from page one member of the department had urged the chief to stay. “Will I do it?” he continued. “Yes, on my terms and with inside help. It’s got to be a team effort,” he stressed, explaining that his full-time job occupied him from 5:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. on weekdays and he owed time to “the new woman in my life,” his granddaughter. He also expected the commission would “move rapidly with a replacement. Paul Auger of Northfield, who chairs the commission, said “we have other options,” referring specifically to retired chiefs. “I’m not saying we go that way, but it’s an option. You’ve (Robinson) made us an offer and it’s a good offer.” The commission held a non-public meeting to discuss personnel issues and emerged after more than half an hour to announce the appointments of Robinson and Joubert. Hall told the commissioners that he appreciated their decision as well as the timeliness in which they made it. “There will be zero ripples in this water,” he assured them. “It will be a seamless transition.” Earlier the commission accepted Ober’s resignation and thanked him for his eight-and-a-half years of service with the department, after which he left the meeting. After succeeding Steve Carrier in 2010, Ober became the second chief to leave the Titlon-Northfield Fire Department to become deputy chief in Gilford in the past three years. Both Carrier and Ober had trying relationships with the commission. Carrier found himself in the midst of a dispute between the two towns over the prospect of constructing a life-safety building to house the Tilton Police Department and elements of the Fire Department, which led the Northfield selectmen to force a vote to dissolve the fire district that was soundly rejected in 2010. Ober’s tenure was dogged by his difficulties in complying with the commission’s requirement that he establish residency within the district. Unable to sell his home in New Hampton, he rented an apartment in Tilton on the eve of the deadline on January 2 to avoid the risk of dismissal. But, the issue lingered, emerging again in June when, according to minutes of a commissioner’s meeting, Clark said that “people have complained the chief is coming in to work from up north on a regular basis” and he “invited them to come into talk about it.” Clark said that without a formal complaint it would remain a “non-issue,” but, echoed by Commissioner Les Dolecal, recommended monitoring the mileage on the chief’s car. Yesterday Pat Consentino, chair of the Tilton Board of Selectmen, reminded the commission that “under the regime of Pat Clark” the department had lost two chiefs and three firefighters as well as a commissioner, Tom Gallant, who resigned abruptly citing his differences with Clark. “How much money, taxpayer money, are we going to spend before we realize this is a personal agenda?” Consentino asked. Again referring to the resignations, she said that “the common denominator is obvious.” Hiring chiefs and firefighters, she noted, “costs a lot of money” and legal expenses in the Fire District budget, she noted, have more than tripled, from $5,000 to $16,000 since Clark joined the commission. “I’m just looking at the money,” she remarked. When Auger asked Judy Tilton, whose apartment Ober rented to establish residency in the district, she replied “you don’t wanrt to hear what I have to say.” Encouraged to speak, she said “you’ve systematically harassed Brad (Ober) to this point”, then cut herself short. “It happens all the time,” Auger said of Ober’s resignation, “whether it’s here or there.” Clark said that the decision of the state to cease funding its share of pensions for firefighters severely strained the district’s budget and conceded that the residency requirement was “a source of controversy, a big issue.” Carrier’s departure, he said “had nothing to do with me” while adding “is it fun to go through? No. It’s lots of work.”


THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, September 17, 2013 — Page 9

from preceding page ated with Boston. New England clam chowder is another dish of the ages that underwent a similar evolution. Dairy products were a scarce commodity in New England prior to the widespread introduction of dairy herds in the 19th Century. Prior to this development, said Lauterbach, chowder would have been a much thinner soup, then became the rich, creamy concoction once milk and cream became one of the region’s most affordable products. Another food item closely associated with New England also came to the fore midway through the 1800s. When the 19th Century began, molasses was a common sweetener. However, it being a commodity imported from south of the Mason-Dixon line, northern cooks boycotted the product during the Civil War, and maple syrup usurped molasses’s spot in New England’s pantries. Of all the long-lived dishes still served in the region, Lauterbach said the New England boiled dinner is likely the one that changed the least over time. Simply a chunk of meat, placed in a pot with vegetables and cooked for hours on the hearth, it would have been a great way for a 17th Century housewife to prepare a hearty dinner while attending to other

chores while it bubbled away. The only difference between that meal and one served today would be that modern cooks would likely be more generous with seasonings. Through her research, Lauterbach said, “I came to the conclusion that what goes around comes around.” Today’s culinarians prize locallysourced, organic ingredients, which were all that the Pilgrims had access to. “However,” added Lauterbach, “it’s ever so much improved.” The menu for the Sept. 20 chef’s night dinner, said Elfline, will feature chowder, boiled dinner, baked beans with brown bread and salmon with peas and an egg sauce, all served tapas-style. For dessert, a slice of apple pie and a piece of sharp cheddar. “The idea is to take people through what they used to serve in New Hampshire 200 years ago,” said Elfline. However, she added, her chef will be aiming to please the modern palate more so than Puritan ideals. “We will add a little more spice than what they did — we certainly want to make it flavorful, but we want to make it as authentic as possible so people can see how they used to eat.” The cost of the chef’s night dinner is $30 per person, call 677-7141 to make a reservation.

POVERTY from page 2 15.1 percent, but census officials said that change was statistically insignificant. For the past year, the official poverty line was an annual income of $23,492 for a family of four. The Census Bureau’s annual report offers a snapshot of the economic wellbeing of U.S. households for 2012, when the unemployment rate averaged 8.1 percent after reaching an average high of 9.6 percent in 2010. Typically, the poverty rate tends to move in a similar direction as the unemployment rate, so many analysts had been expecting a modest decline in poverty. The latest census data show that the gap between rich and poor was largely unchanged over the past year, having widened since 2007 to historic highs. On Monday, Obama called attention to what he described as economic improvements — the nation’s gross domestic product did rise by 2.8 percent last year — and said congressional Republicans would reverse recent gains if they took uncompromising stands in connection with looming budget deadlines. Some GOP conservatives have been demanding a delay of Obama’s new

health care law as the price for supporting continued federal government spending. The House is also expected to consider a bill this week that would cut food stamps for the poor by an estimated $4 billion annually — 10 times the size of cuts passed by the Democratic Senate — and allow states to put broad new work requirements in place for recipients. “This lack of improvement in poverty is disappointing and discouraging,” said John Iceland, a former Census Bureau chief of the poverty and health statistics branch who is now a Penn State sociology professor. “This lack of progress in poverty indicates that these small improvements in the economy are not yet being equally shared by all.” Ron Haskins, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution who specializes in poverty, agreed. “Everything’s on hold, but at a bad level; poverty and income did not change much in 2012,” he said. “So child poverty is still too high and family income is still too low. The recession may be over, but try to tell that to these struggling families. Don’t expect things to change until the American economy begins to generate more jobs.”

BOSTON (AP) — Danny Valencia tripled to stop closer Koji Uehara’s streak of 37 consecutive outs in the ninth inning and Matt Wieters’ had the go-ahead sacrifice fly as the Baltimore Orioles beat the Boston Red Sox 3-2 on Tuesday night. The Orioles overcame a 2-0 deficit on Brian Roberts’ run-scoring groundout in the fifth and Chris Davis’ 51st homer of the season in the sixth that tied the score 2-2. Davis broke the club record set by Brady Anderson in 1996. Uehara (4-1) fell four outs short of Bobby Jenks’ major league record for a reliever of 41 consecutive retired batters set in 2007 and Mark Buehrle’s mark for all pitchers of 45 in 2009. The run was the first off Uehara in 30 2-3 innings and ended a streak of 27 scoreless outings since July 9. Valencia led off the ninth with a triple to center and pinch-runner Alexi Casilla scored easily on Wieters’ fly to right. The Red Sox managed just three hits, a leadoff homer by Dustin Pedroia in the first, a double by Mike Carp in the second and a single by Jarrod Saltalamacchia with one out in the ninth off Jim Johnson. But Johnson retired the next two batters for his AL-best 46th save. Tommy Hunter (6-4) got the win with a perfect eighth. The Orioles threatened in the eighth when Nate McLouth singled

and took third on Manny Machado’s AL-leading 51st double with no outs. But Craig Breslow replaced Brandon Workman and needed just six pitches to get out of the jam. With the infield in, he got Davis and Adam Jones to ground out to shortstop Stephen Drew as the runners held then retired Nick Markakis on a fly to left. The Red Sox took a 1-0 lead on Pedroia’s ninth homer of the season. Left fielder McLouth didn’t even move as it went deep into the seats above the Green Monster. They made it 2-0 in the fourth with the help of two errors by a team that had made just 43 all year. With one out and third baseman Machado playing in short right field on the shift for Saltalamacchia, he charged a hard grounder and let it get by him for an error. Drew then walked before a double steal put runners at second and third. Xander Bogaerts followed with a low liner to left field that McLouth charged. The ball hit off his glove for an error and Saltalamacchia scored. Bogaerts was credited with a sacrifice fly. Machado made a throwing error in the seventh on a grounder down the line by Pedroia. The Orioles made it 2-1 in the fifth when Valencia walked, took third on a double by J.J. Hardy and scored on a groundout by Roberts.

SHOTGUN from page 2 and other records. “What the 1986 Firearms Owners’ Protection Act did was it made it more convenient for gun buyers,” said Kristen Rand, the legislative director at the Violence Policy Center. “That’s the road we’ve been on for a while: The convenience of gun owner always seems to trump the right of victims not to be shot.” Federal gun laws bar the mentally ill from legally buying guns from licensed dealers. But the law requires that someone be involuntarily committed to a mental health facility or declared mentally ill by a judge, and that information must be reported to the FBI in order to appear on a background checks. In the wake of the 2007 shooting at Virginia Tech, state authorities changed state laws to make it tougher for the mentally ill to buy guns there. But like other recently accused mass shooters, Alexis was never declared mentally ill by a judge or committed to a hospital. He was being treated by the Veterans Administration as recently as August, according to two law enforcement officials, but the Navy had not declared him mentally unfit. The Virginia Tech shooter, Seung Hi Cho, was declared mentally ill by a judge, but nobody ever reported it to federal authorities to get him included in the database of banned purchasers. After the December massacre at a Connecticut elementary school, U.S. lawmakers pushed to overhaul gun laws. Among the proposals was a ban on military-style rifles, including the popular AR-15, and high-capacity ammunition magazines. There was

also a plan to expand background checks to make sure anyone who wanted a gun got the approval of the federal government. No legislation has moved forward in Congress, despite urgent pleas from the president, some lawmakers and victims’ families. President Barack Obama has made a few narrow administrative changes, but those are not likely to impact the kinds of guns most often found at crime scenes. Obama said Tuesday he was concerned that an American ritual could emerge where every few months, the nation suffers a horrific mass shooting, then fails to take action to stop the next one from occurring. He said he would continue speaking out about the need for new gun laws, but that ultimately, it’s up to lawmakers. “I’ve taken steps that are within my control,” Obama said in an interview with Telemundo. “The next phase now is for Congress to go ahead and move.” Monday’s shooting prompted a new round of calls for action from lawmakers. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Sen. Joe Manchin, D.-W.Va., the author of a bill on background checks, both said they would like to see a vote on the background checks bill, but the votes aren’t there for passage at this time. Still, Reid said he hopes to get another gun control vote this year. “I don’t want any more bad things to happen, you know. Something’s going to have to get the attention of these characters who don’t want any controls.” Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., a leading advocate for tougher gun control in the Senate, said in a statement that the shooting “is one more event to add to the litany of massacres.”


Ian Ethan and the Open Land Trio at The Jazz Bar LACONIA — The Jazz Bar will present Ian Ethan and the Open Land Trio Thursday, September 19 at 7 p.m. Acoustic double-neck guitarist Ian Ethan Case began a journey into truly uncharted territory when he picked up a seldom-seen 18-string instrument in 2005, two years after leaving the Berklee College of Music. While most who venture to play the instrument are either baffled by or unaware of the possibilities that it offers (its history seems to peg it as more of a stage prop than a valid musical tool), for him it is simply “the most effective and intuitive means I’ve found to translate into sound the things I’m hearing in my head.” Case’s music is featured on radio and TV stations throughout the country. Emmy-Winning producer/ composer Peter Wilder says: “Ian Ethan represents something so new in musical approach, that the result is near impossible to pigeon hole into a ‘sounds like’ statement. It has been my personal privilege to observe his unwavering and deep exploration of this new technique and on a relatively rare instrument. The original music of Ian Ethan is not to be missed.” Ian will perform with saxophonist Don Davis and drummer Karl Grohmann. NH-based singer/songwriter Audrey Drake will open the show.

Today’s active retirement communities This isn’t your grandmother’s nursing home, today’s active seniors want different choices

L

istening to a group of seniors on a recent tour of the Anheuser-Busch Brewery in Merrimack, N.H. shows a side of active retirees that breaks many of the stereotypes still held by some. Today’s active seniors want more choices and different choices.

“People not familiar with the lifestyles of today’s active seniors think they spend all their time playing bingo,” said Sue Williams, Coordinator of Resident Life at Taylor Community. “They don’t realize they’re also going on whale watching trips, taking a cruise on the Mount Washington around Lake Winnipesaukee and enjoying musical concerts and baseball games, to name just a few things.” Seniors don’t move to a retirement community because they no longer want to be actively involved. In fact, it’s often the other way around. They like to participate in things that are enjoyable, stimulating, social and fun. “Many people who move here are motivated by the idea of not having to spend the time and effort required for home maintenance,” said Paul Charlton, Taylor’s Director of Marketing. Taylor resident and avid hiker John Larson echoed Charlton’s comment, “I moved here because I wanted to spend my time doing the things I want to do instead of doing the things I have to do.” Often someone’s living circumstances make it difficult to participate in activities and socialize, said Charlton. “Maybe the person lives in a rural area and his or her ability to get involved in events is limited.” Harvard researchers have reported socializing is just as important for seniors as regular exercise, according to Cheryl Sinclair of Half Moon Bay Review. “Loss of self-worth and depression can occur when people don’t have personal contact with others. Studies have shown that cognitive ability can increase with frequent interaction with others,” she added. Carol Warren, Taylor’s Activity Director, knows how important socialization is. “We keep our assisted living and nursing residents busy with weekly scenic drives, mind challenge games, picnics and other activities that bring them together in a group.”

Many seniors no longer drive and this can also lead to a lack of socialization. “Having to depend on others to get somewhere can be off-putting,” said Charlton. One benefit of living in a retirement community is having free transportation. Rides to doctor appointments and bi-weekly shopping trips on the bus are just a sample of what Taylor provides. “Since I gave up driving, having transportation available is a blessing,” said resident Rita Vachon after a recent shopping trip to a Gilford supermarket. There’s ever-increasing evidence that keeping seniors active plays a critical role in helping them to remain alert and interested in life and maintain good health, according to Steven Watson, PhD, MC. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports approximately 30 percent of adults aged 65 to 74 and 40 percent of those 75 and older are considered inactive, said Watson. “Inactivity means someone doesn’t engage in any leisure-time physical activity. Additionally, the CDC reports only 31 percent of those 65-74 participate in at least 20 minutes of physical activity three or more days per week, with the figure being even lower for those 75 and older.” Taylor Fitness and Aquatics Coordinator Chris Guthro’s goal is to keep residents physically conditioned. One resident who impresses her with her tenacity is 90-year-old Barbara Hayes, who walks daily (sometimes Taylor Resident John Larson and his dog, Shadow, enjoy twice a day) and takes chair yoga the walking trail. and strength classes. Walking can sometimes be compared to a magic pill,” said Guthro. “Brisk walking has been associated with a 30-40 percent lower risk of heart disease, a 50 percent lower risk of stroke and numerous other benefits.” “Walking the Taylor Campus is great fun because there are so many roads and paths to choose from,” she added. With more than 100 acres, the area lends itself to a great variety of locations, including a wooded walking trail, which was recently cleaned up by leadership staff to make it more accessible. A list was developed showing the distance of each street, allowing everyone to keep track of their mileage. groceries. helps a resident with her Larson, who “likes to keep active,” Taylor Bus Driver Mike Beaule takes advantage of all Taylor has to see ACTIVE page 16

What is the first thing that pops into your head when someone says retirement community? Be honest – is it old people? Look again. Not all adult communities are designed alike. Nowadays there are many different living options to consider as we age. For those who prefer to live in their own home, within a diverse community, where they can work and play while enjoying a maintenance-free lifestyle, senior living communities offer an attractive option. Wesley Woods is such a community. It is not a retirement community– and doesn’t want to be. It is a community that allows you work full time (if you want) and live your life the rest of the time. They fully expect that when you move in at age 62, you will live there until you are 102. And during that time they will help you age with grace, dignity, zest and most of all independence.

Six Surprising Ways Older Adults Are Staying Social isolation can double one’s risk of an early death. This should come as no great surprise. Our brains are wired for socializing, and a severe lack of social contact leads to stress. Stress in turn leads to a myriad of health problems such as an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, obesity and mental illness. So how are older adults staying social nowadays? Here are a few of the ways older adults are now reaching out to their friends, family, and community:

Skype is a great s tool for allowing older adult to keep in touch with loved far. ones near or

Social Media

Jennifer Harvey, RN, BSN, CHP

In many ways, technology has opened up a sort of golden age for older adults, creating more opportunities than ever before to remain engaged and social, whether one is homebound, frail, or simply lacking transportation. These social connections are helping more older adults avoid isolation, stave off depression and keep their minds active and healthier. Study after study has proven that social contact is beneficial to health, reducing risk of disability, depression and pain as well as protecting the brain from mental decline. Some studies have even found that social

The 74-plus demographic is the fastest growing demographic among social networks, according to the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project. Social media provides the opportunity to have and be a friend, to congregate without leaving the house, and to never have to feel alone. Social media also gives older adults and their families a convenient way to check in regularly, stimulating more frequent conversations between the generations and creating peace of mind for everyone. A study by Dr. Shelia Cotten, a sociologist and associate professor from the University of Alabama, Birmingham, revealed that Internet use was associated with a 30 percent decrease in depressive symptoms among older adults who used it regularly, while other studies have shown similarly impressive results.

Wii games have given seniors a fun and active way to be social. Seniors who may normally be reluctant to be involved in activities are now engaging with others through the Wii games. It has also proven to be a great intergenerational activity for families.

Online Dating for Seniors The 50+ segment is the fastest growing group of subscribers for online dating, with one service reporting an 89% growth rate over the last five years of older adults using their service. Senior dating sites have allowed older adults a much wider net to find others with similar interests. An AARP study found that seniors felt the most important reason for dating was “having someone to talk to or do things with”.

Skype

Skype has proven to be a great tool for older adults, allowing online video conversations with loved ones near or far. It is also a great way for a family to include an older adult in a celebration or a vacation.

Home Care

For older adults who do not have ready access to transportation, or who need a little encouragement to socialize,

home care can be a great solution. An in-home caregiver can encourage attendance and serve as a personal escort to social outings, plays, concerts, and sporting events, religious services and church activities. A caregiver can also plan and

schedule visits with friends and neighbors as well as play interactive games with the older adult. In addition, a home care agency can provide transportation to an adult day facility for further interaction with other older adults.

Technology is still a stranger to many older adults in our community. Home care agencies, such as MYAGENCY, can introduce older adults to the many opportunities that technology presents to help them remain social and engaged.

For further information on how home care can help older adults remain social, contact Live Free Home Health Care at 603-217-0149 or visit us at www.livefreehomehealthcare. com.

Association for Blind Central NH Advisory Committee formed NORTHFIELD — The New Hampshire Association for the Blind has formed a Advisory Committee for Central New Hampshire which meets on the second Thursday of every month at the Pines Community Center. Members come together with their notes and schedules, thoughts and ideas, guide dogs and white canes to gather and discuss their new positions of being “ambassadors” for the New Hampshire Association for the Blind. The New Hampshire Association for the Blind’s main office is located in Concord on 25 Walker Street. The NHAB provides vision rehabilitation services for New Hampshire residents of all ages who are blind and visually impaired. Founded in 1912 the mission of the Association is to advance the independence of persons who are blind and visually impaired. The Association delivers assistance to virtually every community statewide, including social work and public education. The new Advisory Committee’s mission is to advocate for the New Hamp-

shire Association for the Blind and get the word out about the issues of blindness throughout Central NH. (Concord north to Campton). The NHAB already has advisory committee’s established in the Portsmouth and Manchester areas. These advisory committees have made a considerable impact in spreading awareness of the issues of blindness throughout these areas. One issue that the committee is addressing is the fact that many people don’t understand the white cane, what it stands for and what it means for those who use one. People still treat the blind differently because there is not enough information available to the public. The hope of the committee is to create awareness of the issues facing the blind in Central New Hampshire by getting into stores, businesses, offices and school systems. For more information about the various advisory committees contact Shelley Proulx at the New Hampshire Association for the Blind (603)2244039, ext. 327 or visit the website at www.sightcenter.org.

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis

care enough to ask about their experience of things will matter. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Don’t cheat yourself! Being generous is one thing, but giving like you don’t even exist will ultimately be a detriment to all. Claim what you need, and hold on to it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Nothing will be written in stone today. You may choose and then change your mind, speak and then retract, claim and then trade your claim for another. Stay versatile. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Utterly narcissistic people don’t see themselves as lacking empathy. Your pointing it out will make no difference. Navigate the interaction by accepting the limitations of this type. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 18). Your desire for special family bonding will be fulfilled now and at many points throughout the year. At work, you run a fair operation and earn the trust of clients and partners in October. November brings an expansion. January features a fun twist. Adventure sparks your social life. Aquarius and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 2, 11, 22 and 19.

by Chad Carpenter

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Of course you can be mad at someone and still love that person, but young and emotionally immature people don’t understand this as well as others do. Declare your love often regardless of your momentary feelings. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Take those things that you are obligated to do off of your list. Obligation just isn’t a strong enough motivator to get you to take action now. You’ll be too busy addressing that which is urgent or fascinating. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If your focus seems fuzzy or your attitude is at half-mast, don’t go forward. Go for total engagement or none at all. A determined effort is needed if you are to avoid wasting your time. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Someone is purposely keeping you in the dark because he or she is afraid of your possible reaction. When there’s little else to go on, let your keen instinct take over. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do, as long as you are strong enough to believe it -- and you certainly are! You’ll get the chance to show your backbone. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If you realize that someone is rating you on your looks, success or status rather than on their experience of you as a person, you are being objectified. Steer people to the real you, not the you on paper. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your physical travels mirror your mental travels. Your thoughts will take you all over the map. Every time you land someplace new today, recognize those thoughts that are responsible for the journey. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Love is the magic ingredient of success. If you apply skill, money and talent to a project but do not apply love, you won’t find as much success as you would if you applied nothing more than love. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You can only come at a relationship from your own point of view, but at least you recognize that others think differently. That you

Yesterday’s Answer


Page 22 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, September 18, 2013

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Wednesday, Sept. 18, the 261st day of 2013. There are 104 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 18, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln signed a commission naming Rabbi Jacob Frankel of Rodeph Shalom Congregation in Philadelphia the first Jewish chaplain of the U.S. Army. On this date: In 1759, the French formally surrendered Quebec to the British. In 1793, President George Washington laid the cornerstone of the U.S. Capitol. In 1810, Chile made its initial declaration of independence from Spain with the formation of a national junta. In 1850, Congress passed the Fugitive Slave Act, which created a force of federal commissioners charged with returning escaped slaves to their owners. In 1927, the Columbia Phonograph Broadcasting System (later CBS) made its on-air debut with a basic network of 16 radio stations. In 1931, an explosion in the Chinese city of Mukden damaged a section of Japanese-owned railway track; Japan, blaming Chinese nationalists, invaded Manchuria the next day. In 1947, the National Security Act, which created a National Military Establishment, went into effect. In 1961, United Nations Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjold (dahg HAWM’-ahr-shoold) was killed in a plane crash in northern Rhodesia. In 1970, rock star Jimi Hendrix died in London at age 27. In 1975, newspaper heiress Patricia Hearst was captured by the FBI in San Francisco, 19 months after being kidnapped by the Symbionese Liberation Army. In 1981, a museum honoring former President Gerald R. Ford was dedicated in Grand Rapids, Mich. In 1990, the city of Atlanta was named the site of the 1996 Summer Olympics. The organized crime drama “GoodFellas,” directed by Martin Scorsese, had its U.S. premiere in New York. Ten years ago: Hurricane Isabel plowed into North Carolina’s Outer Banks with 100 mph winds and pushed its way up the Eastern Seaboard; the storm was later blamed for 30 deaths. Five years ago: President George W. Bush told the country his administration was working feverishly to calm turmoil in the financial markets. The president met with Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, who then asked Congress to give the government power to rescue banks by buying up their bad assets. Stocks on Wall Street shot up more than 400 points on word a plan was in the works. One year ago: Chicago teachers voted to suspend their strike and return to the classroom after more than a week on picket lines, ending a combative stalemate with Mayor Rahm Emanuel over evaluations and job security.

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Dear Annie: My son recently married a young woman from an affluent family. When he was first engaged, we began to see less of him. We invited him and his fiancee to dinners, vacations, etc., but were usually turned down. They do, however, spend a great deal of time with her family, so we have just backed off. My husband and I contributed almost half of the money for the wedding. We offered to help with whatever we could, but were told that our help was not needed. Her family did all of the planning. She and her mother conjured up lies to throw us off from planning our guest list, what we should wear to the wedding, etc. We hosted a beautiful rehearsal dinner, with no “thank you” or even a smile from the bride. On the day of the wedding, our daughter-in-law was embarrassingly rude to my husband and me. It wasn’t until the next day, when she refused to attend a family function before going on their honeymoon, that I found out she was angry with me because of what I wore. Annie, I wore the dress my son told me to wear, but he will not admit that to his wife. We have not heard from either of them since that day. I am so incredibly hurt. I treated this girl like part of the family. I can’t believe she would ruin a relationship over something so trivial. Any advice? -- Mom from Montana Dear Mom: The dress is just an excuse to limit contact. It sounds as if your new daughter-in-law doesn’t want a relationship with her husband’s family, and he permits it -- either because he agrees or, more likely, because he doesn’t want to upset the applecart. You need to “make nice,” even though it will be difficult. Call or email your son and his wife, apologize for unintentionally selecting the wrong dress, mention something nice about the wedding and about the bride, and sign off by say-

ing you hope to see them soon. We hope your son values his family enough to put his spine back into place. Dear Annie: I have, for quite some time now, been concerned about a possible water shortage in the U.S. and around the world. I recently stayed with a friend and was amazed at how much water she wasted. She would keep the kitchen faucet turned on full blast for several minutes while working in another area. I didn’t say anything, as it was her home, but it sure hit me that we waste this precious resource. I am not perfect with my water usage, but I hardly would have let my water run when I didn’t need it. Specialists on water shortage have written articles on how soon our water supply could run out. Also, why don’t all sinks have an “instant hot” so we don’t have to run the faucet until the water warms up? I am hoping you will print this and it will save water in some households. -- Concerned Water Conservator Dear Concerned: We don’t always appreciate that we have finite resources on this planet, including water. Please, folks, don’t run the faucet if you don’t need the water. Use cold when you can. Set a timer for your showers. Let’s not take our blessings for granted. Dear Annie: This is for “Retired Architect in Dayton, Ohio,” who asked why we build houses that can burn down: I suppose if we mountain dwellers were able to build our ideal homes, we would make certain they were as fireproof as possible. However, there is no such thing as a fireproof construction. We are survivors of the Silver Fire. Many of our neighbors and friends lost their homes. We saw quite a bit of melted steel. Even concrete burns. The most important thing that every mountain dweller can do is keep a defensible space. -- Banning, Calif.

POW/MIA Recognition Poet Sophie Cabot Black launches 2013-14 Eagle Pond Authors’ Series at Plymouth State University Day to be observed in Meredith on Friday MEREDITH — The Northeast POW/MIA Network, which holds what is believed to be the longest consecutively held POW/MIA vigil in the United States every Thursday evening at Hesky Park, reminds the public that Friday, September 20 is National POW/MIA Recognition Day. National POW/MIA Recognition Day is held each year on the third Friday in September. This Friday ceremonies will be held across the country to commemorate the sacrifices of the missing servicemen and their families. The Thursday evening vigils in Meredith started in August of 1989 in an effort to raise awareness about the abandonment of Prisoners of War and those Missing in Action. The first Vigil lasted 15 minutes; one minute to symbolize each year since the US State Department declared, “There are no more prisoners in Southeast Asia. They are all dead.” The vigil now spans 32 minutes. There has never been a Thursday night Vigil unattended since its inception. Attendance ranges from 3-4 in the depths of winter to approximately 2000 during Motorcycle Week in June, which features the Freedom Ride Vigil goers have weathered rain, sleet, snow, hail, thunder, lightning, and even temperatures of -37 degrees Fahrenheit.

PLYMOUTH — Connecticut poet Sophie Cabot Black will open the 2013-14 Eagle Pond Authors’ Series at 7 p.m. Thursday, September 19 in Smith Recital Hall at Plymouth State University’s Silver Center for the Arts. Black writes lyrical poems that place her among our most spiritually meaningful poets. Her poems are both revelatory and elusive, exploring a landscape sharpened with grief and devotion. A Los Angeles Times book reviewer said, “Sophie Cabot Black ... is absolutely direct and absolutely removed—a strange confluence of tones that is both intellectually provocative and deeply moving.” Collections of Black’s poetry include The Misunderstanding of Nature, which won the Poetry Society of America’s Norma Farber First Book Award, The Descent, which won the Connecticut Book Award, and her newest collection, The Exchange. The Wilton Bulletin (Conn.) columnist Chris Burns says the poetry in The Exchange draws heavily on Black’s experience watching a friend fight a terrible and eventually fatal illness. “Though not explicitly narrative, the book follows a certain story,” according to Burns’ interview. Black’s father was a noted Broadway producer and her mother produced opera theater in Boston and New York. Black spent 10 years living in Manhattan, but she spent the majority of her time at the family farmhouse in Wilton. Burns says Black’s experiences caring for animals and raising children on the farm helped shape her understanding of the cycles of life and death. Black has been awarded the Grolier Poetry Prize, and fellowships from the MacDowell Colony, the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, and the Bunting Institute at Radcliffe. Her poetry has been anthologized in Best American Poetry and Never Before: Poems About First Experiences. Her essays have been included in Wanting a Child. In Eagle Pond Series tradition, PSU senior business major Patrick O’Sullivan of Hudson will open the program reading some of his own works. Now in its 16th year, the Eagle Pond Authors’

Poet Sophie Cabot Black (Courtesy photo)

Series is a tribute to Donald Hall, one of the nation’s most beloved poets and authors. Hall remains the heart and soul of this series and is instrumental in bringing nationally and internationally revered poets to the PSU campus. An author’s reception and book signing with both Black and Hall will follow the reading. Free tickets for the Eagle Pond Authors’ Series are available at the Silver Center Box Office, (603) 535-2787 or (800) 779-3869, and are highly recommended. The series is presented with generous support from the Follett Higher Education Group (PSU Bookstore).

Broadway Idol at Winnipesaukee Playhouse Saturday

MEREDITH — The Winnipesaukee Playhouse will be alive with the sound of music... theatre music, that is, when the Playhouse holds its first Broadway Idol musical theatre competition on Saturday, September 21 at 7:30 p.m. Fifteen local teens and adults will be singing their hearts out for the title of Broadway Idol. Based on American Idol, this one-night only event will feature performances from classic and contemporary musicals including Funny Girl, Mamma Mia!, Shrek and many more. Taking on the roles of Simon, Paula and Randy will be three well-respected musical theatre professionals: Nancy Barry, Producing Artistic Director at Interlakes Summer Theatre; Joel Mercier, Artistic Associate and Resident Music Director at the New London Barn Playhouse and Keith Weirich, Artistic Director for the Peacock Players. The judges will offer commentary after each contestant’s turn and will vote at the end of the evening. However, the audience will also help decide who will win the title of Broadway Idol by purchasing “votes” for their favorites. All proceeds from the admission sales

($10 per person) and voting tickets ($1 per vote) will support the theatre and educational programming of the non-profit Winnipesaukee Playhouse. Prizes for Idol winners include a $100 Tanger Outlets Gift Card (teen first prize) and an overnight stay at Mill Falls at the Lake plus a $50 Gift Card from Canoe in Center Harbor(adult first prize). The grand prize will be a Weekend Theatre Getaway for two including a two-night stay at the luxury Westminster Hotel in Livingston NJ, plus two tickets to the world premiere of Honeymoon in Vegas The Musical starring Tony Danza at the Paper Mill Theatre in Millburn NJ. The Winnipesaukee Playhouse extends a huge thank you to the local businesses who donated prizes as well as to the event sponsor, Bruno Coppola of Lakes Region Realty Group.
