Tea Party takes aim at Alton workforce housing initiative By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

ALTON — An initiative to amend the zoning ordinance to bring the town into compliance with the state statute requiring municipalities “to provide reasonable and realistic opportunities for the development of workforce housing” was met with suspicion and hostility by a crowd of some 75 people, including a contingent from the Lakes Region Tea Party, that jammed the Gilman Museum Wednesday night.

The meeting was the first of two forums hosted as a community service by the Alton Business Association, which takes no position for or against the issue of workforce housing. Voicing the mood in the room, State Rep. Jane Cormier (R-Alton) charged that the proposal reflected an effort by the federal government, through its Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), “to manipulate our local zoning law.” Instead of complying with the law, she

urged voters to send conservative representatives to Concord to repeal it, earning herself a round of thunderous applause. After listening to similar sentiments for more than an hours, Tom Hoopes, vice-chairman of the Planning Board, rose to say “what we’re doing here is planning. We don’t have the tools to deal with a problem. This has nothing to do with HUD.” His statement was met with cries of derision and a woman sitting nearby questioned whether he should see WOrKfOrCE page 3

BELMONT — For the past few months, Polly Murphy has been remembering one of the defining moments of her life — when her late husband Postmaster Thomas Murphy thwarted a 1960 attempted assassination on then President-Elect John Fitzgerald Kennedy. In the aftermath of his heroism and, in part, as the result of a media campaign by former Union Leader newspaper owner and publisher William Loeb, her family ended up being stalked by Richard Paul Pavlick — the man who had intended to kill JFK. “Tom’s name was never supposed to be released, but it was,” she said while attendsee JfK page 8

GILBERTON, Pa. (AP) — A suspended police chief who posted videos online in which he shot borough-owned automatic weapons while shouting obscenities about liberals and the Second Amendment fought to keep his job Thursday as he defended himself against unrelated allegations that his attorney said were trumped up to conceal the town’s intent to fire him over the videos. Gilberton Chief Mark Kessler told reporters outside his closed-door disciplinary hearing that he had been an excellent police chief and had nothing to apologize for. Kessler and attorney Joseph Nahas presented their case at the hearing, but Nahas said he expects his client to be fired when the borough council meets Thursday night. Kessler’s pro-gun videos have garnered hundreds of thousands of views online. He acknowledges they are inflammatory but says they’re designed to draw attention to what he views as the erosion of Second Amendment and other constitutional rights. “It’s not easy.

Pope criticizes Catholicism’s emphasis on abortion & gays VATICAN CITY (AP) — Signaling a dramatic shift in Vatican tone, Pope Francis said the Catholic Church had become obsessed by “small-minded rules” about how to be faithful and that pastors should instead emphasize compassion over condemnation when discussing divisive social issues of abortion, gays and contraception. The pope’s remarkably blunt message six months into his papacy was sure to reverberate in the U.S. and around the globe as bishops who have focused much of their preaching on such hot-button issues are

asked to act more as pastors of wounded souls. In interviews published Thursday in Jesuit journals in 16 countries, Francis said he had been “reprimanded” for not pressing church opposition to abortion in his papacy. But he said “it is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time.” “The church’s pastoral ministry cannot be obsessed with the transmission of a disjointed multitude of doctrines to be imposed insistently,” Francis said. “We have to find a new balance; other-

wise even the moral edifice of the church is likely to fall like a house of cards, losing the freshness and fragrance of the Gospel,” the pope said in the 12,000-word article, based on interviews conducted by a fellow Jesuit, the Rev. Antonio Spadaro, editor of La Civilta Cattolica, a Rome journal for the religious order. “The church sometimes has locked itself up in small things, in small-minded rules,” Francis said. “The most important thing is the first proclamation: Jesus Christ has see POPE page 10

GOP-controlled House voted to cut $4B from food stamp program WASHINGTON (AP) — The House has voted to cut nearly $4 billion a year from food stamps, a 5 percent reduction to the nation’s main feeding program used by more than 1 in 7 Americans. The 217-210 vote was a win for conservatives after Democrats united in opposition and some GOP moderates said the cut was too high. Fifteen Republicans voted against the measure. The bill’s savings would be achieved by allowing states to put broad new work

requirements in place for many food stamp recipients and to test applicants for drugs. The bill also would end government waivers that have allowed able-bodied adults without dependents to receive food stamps indefinitely. House conservatives, led by Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., have said the almost $80 billion-a-year program has become bloated. More than 47 million Americans are now on food stamps, and the program’s cost more than doubled in

the last five years as the economy struggled through the Great Recession. Democrats said the rise in the rolls during tough economic times showed the program was doing its job. Finding a compromise — and the votes — to scale back the feeding program has been difficult. The conservatives have insisted on larger cuts, Democrats opposed any cuts and some moderate Republicans from areas with high food stamp usage see FOOD STAMPS page 9

WASHINGTON (AP) — Congressional Republicans struggled to tamp down a family feud Thursday as they approached a politically charged showdown with the White House that combines the threat of

a government shutdown, a possible firstever federal default and the GOP’s bid to repeal the nation’s three-year-old health care law. One day after conceding that the Dem-

ocratic-controlled Senate probably would prevail on the last part, Sen. Ted Cruz still vowed to do “everything and anything possible to defund Obamacare.” That includes see OBAMACARE page 10

ago and I don’t want to go back to, thank you.” A man from Meredith said that what was represented as workforce housing became subsidized housing. “Maybe you want to talk to those people,” he suggested. Whitman reminded the crowd that the zoning ordinance permits subsidized units in multi-family buildings. “Is the Lakes Region Planning Commission involved in any way?” asked another man, obviously aware of the commission’s role in the Granite State Future project that is hotly opposed by the Lakes Region Tea Party. McWilliams acknowledged that the town is a member of the commission, but insisted the commission plays no part in amending the zoning ordinance. When asked how compliance with the statute would benefit the town, Whitman repeated that it would protect the town from litigation while “providing for a mix of housing at various price points.” Warning that workforce housing would add to the burdens on emergency services and public schools, one man said “they’re like locusts. Once it starts it doesn’t stop.” Cormier said that the statute was written by “insiders,” developers and their lobbyists, for the benefit of “special interests. It’s an insider deal, top to bottom,” she declared. “It’s not American.” The second forum will be held on Thursday, September 25 at the Gilman Museum beginning at 6 p.m. The featured speakers will be Ken Eyring of Windham, founder of the Southern New Hampshire 912 Group, who will explain how workforce housing is linked to the Granite State Future project and Cormier, who will discuss the role of the Lakes Region Planning Commission.

never be an issue,” he conceded, “but there is no way to ensure a developer won’t claim he can’t build housing at an affordable price point in the rural zone.” Amending the zoning ordinance to comply with the state statute, he said, would ensure the town of an effective defense. “Aren’t we already complying?” asked one man, citing the share of affordable units in the current housing stock. Without disagreeing, Whitman reminded him that the burden of proof would fall on the town and the notion of “fair share” is ambiguous. “We should challenge the state to write a clear statute rather than change our zoning,” the man replied. Another man wanted to know how the services of Jeffrey Taylor & Associates were funded. Town Planner Ken McWilliams said that the town was awarded a $30,000 grant by the New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority. The man asked where the agency got the money, “HUD?” When McWlliams replied “yes,” the man said “and the last time I checked HUD is a federal agency.” Barbara Howard, a former member of the Budget Committee, asked who applied for the grant. “You’re looking at him,” said McWilliams, who added that Whitman helped write the application. McWlliams stressed that once the grant was awarded the consulting contract was put out to bid and two firms submitted bids. “You mean you paid the man sitting next to you to write the grant he got the benefit of?” Cormier exclaimed. A woman charged that HUD wants “to urbanize our beautiful rural areas,” adding “I don’t want Alton to become south Jersey where I moved from 34 years

be speaking for the Planning Board. “I’m speaking as an individual,” he replied. “Sit down.” From across the room a man shouted “you work for us, pal.” Hoopes reminded him, “I volunteer for you.” The statute was enacted in 2008, 17 years after the New Hampshire Supreme Court ruled that municipalities could not use zoning ordinances to deny reasonable opportunities to build affordable/workforce housing. The Legislature acted in response to a variety of interests, including representatives of the business community who claimed that a sufficient supply of affordable housing was necessary for commercial and industrial enterprises to attract and retain employees. The law requires municipalities to provide opportunity to develop workforce housing in a majority of the land area zoned for residential use. Furthermore, a municipality may comply with the law if its existing housing stock represents its “fair share” of the regional need for workforce housing. Steve Whitman of Jeffrey Taylor & Associates, the consultant hired to assist the Zoning Amendment Committee prepare a proposal, said that an inventory indicated that between 35-percent and 60-percent of the town’s housing stock qualified as “workforce housing.” He also noted that accessory apartments as well as manufactured and modular housing are permitted in most zones while multifamily dwellings are permitted in both residential commercial and residential rural districts. However, Whitman noted the vast majority of Alton’s 63-square-miles of land area is zoned rural, where house lots require a minimum of two acres and 200 feet of road frontage, effectively excluding workforce housing from most of the town. “This may

Forced to Superior Court for remedy, it will cost Tardif hundreds of dollars to ask judge to order Ward 5 recount By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Former mayor Tom Tardif discovered yesterday that he may have to pay a pretty penny to determine whether he received three write-in votes in the primary election for City Council in Ward 5, as his friend and former councilor Dave Gammon claims. When the polls were closed on September 10, votes tallied and ballots sealed, incumbent city councilor Bob Hamel, who ran unopposed, was declared the winner with 39 of 47 ballots cast. In an apparent oversight by those working the polls, no write-in votes were reported. However, a computer print-out indicated that three write-in ballots were cast. Gammon contends that he, his wife and another woman cast write-in votes for Tardif. Since the City Charter provides for the two candidates with the most voters to advance to the general election in general, if Gammon’s claim is confirmed, Tardif would be entitled to a place on the ballot. But, Gammon’s claim can only be verified by opening and counting the ballots and that requires more than scissors and a calculator. A recount must be requested before the close of business on the first Friday after the election, a deadline that passed last week. On the strength of advice from the city attorney, Laura Spector-Morgan, City Clerk Mary Reynolds advised In the Middle of August 2013 summer starting to wind down, one early evening a beautiful black shepherd who had given birth not long ago was running the roads of East Alton NH… she was a scared and timid creature, she accepted food but with caution. She gave a lot of people who cared for her a great chase. She didn’t want to be captured; she just wanted to go home. Days went by and she wasn’t seen, she slept behind barns and under trees, she ran between the rain drops. She drank water from the lake, the streams and brooks. She ate what was in her path, mainly feces and maybe what some nice people would leave out for her in hopes she would come by that way. She was wanted by a lot of kind people who were ready to give her a forever home.

Gammon and Tardif that five registered voters could petition the New Hampshire Secretary of State to conduct a recount before the second Friday after the election, which falls tomorrow. However, Tardif said that when he met with Deputy Secretary of State David Scanlan yesterday he was informed that this process applied only to questions, not candidates, on the ballot and advised to approach the Superior Court. Tardif said that the clerk of the Belknap County Superior Court told him he could file a petition asking the court to order a recount, but that would cost close to $300 in court fees. Moreover, Tardif said that when he filed suit against the Belknap County Convention earlier this year, Justice James D. O’Neill, III transferred his case to Grafton County Superior Court , apparently to avoid a conflict of interest. “Can you imagine the costs incurred just because everyone is saying “’it’s not me’?” Tardif exclaimed. “It’s a Catch 22.” He said that he has not decided whether or not he would run in the general election should a recount show that he polled enough write-in votes to qualify. Instead, he said that the greater issue is to ensure that votes that are cast are counted. I can’t imagine forklng out that kind of money to help the city correct an error,” he continued. “But, if we don’t file the cloud over the election will be there forever.”


She would come out and the chase began again.. This went on for a few weeks, until that fatal Sunday morning the chase was over; she was struck by a vehicle. She never knew what was coming next. She tried desperately to find her home and the ones that loved her.. At least she thought they loved her…. There was no calls or ads sent out from anyone looking for her,, she was truly abandoned. She was alone and heart broken… known as the black Shepherd running through Town. The NH SPCA has given her a name, Lady that tells her story. She is a lady of God; she has finally made it home. She will never wonder the roads aimlessly again; she will never be hungry, scared or ever alone as she walks along the side of God, who has given her eternal love, peace and wholeness.

Today September 20th at 9:30am Lady will be laid to rest at the Rolling Meadows Pet Cemetery “God bless you Lady- you will never be forgotten” Amen

With pond name up in air, no one seems to know who Tilton Town Forest is named for BY ROGER AMSDEN FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

GILFORD — Selectmen have weighed in on an effort to name a remote pond in the Robert Tilton Town Forest in the Belknap Mountain Range ‘’Moulton Pond’’ and have countered with a proposal that it instead be named ‘’Roberts Pond.’’ Town Administrator Scott Dunn said that the board took the action at its August 28 meeting and that he has since filed a request with the United States Board on Geographic Names for that name for the pond. But there is one glaring omission in the written request, because no one is certain at this point in time exactly who the Robert Tilton for whom the town forest is named was. ‘’We don’t know who he was,’’ said Dunn, who said that the request had to be for ‘’Roberts Pond’’, not ‘’Robert’s Pond’’ as the Board on Geographic names doesn’t allow apostrophes in names. Everett McLaughlin of the town’s Conservation Commission, who originally proposed that the small 6/10 of an acre pond be named ‘’Roberts Pond’’ at the August 14 selectmen’s meeting, says that he’s been researching all of the conservation land in town but still hasn’t found out who Robert Tilton was. McLaughlin said that the 130-acre town forest, which is located in the Piper-Whiteface area near both Gilmanton and Belmont, was mentioned in a town report on March 12, 1986 but that there is no record of how the town acquired the property or when the transaction took place. ‘’There’s no record at the Registry of Deeds, so we

think it must have been through the Probate Court and someone’s will,’’ said McLaughlin. He said that the Conservation Commission has known about the request from Soren Denlinger, 15, of Asbury, New Jersey, a high school sophomore, to have the unnamed pond, which is located 9/10th of a mile southwest of Round Pond, declared to be ‘’Moulton Pond’’ for several months. ‘’I thought at first we should name it ‘’Soren’s Pond’’ because he’s shown so much interest in it. But the Board on Geographic Names says you can’t name geographic features for a living person,’’ says McLaughlin. His proposal for the name ‘’Roberts Pond’’ first came before selectmen at the August 14 meeting but no action was taken by the board at that meeting. Belknap County Commissioners, who received a letter from the Board on Geographic Names about Denlinger’s proposal on August 2, have discussed it at subsequent meetings but decided to take no action on the request when they met Wednesday morning. The commissioners received a copy of the letter

Gilford had sent to the Board on Geographic names in which it said that the Moulton Pond designation was unacceptable to the town and requested that it be named Roberts Pond. They voted to check a box on the form they had received urging the board ‘’to render a decision without our recommendation.’’ Commissioner Ed Philpot (D-Laconia) said at a recent meeting of the commissioners that he had talked with long-time Gilford Conservation Commission member Charles Coons and others about the pond in question and had heard about the ‘’Roberts Pond’’ proposal and planned on writing a personal letter to the Board on Geographic Names. Coons, who retired several years ago from the Gilford Conservation Commission, said that he had always assumed that the Robert Tilton Town Forest was named for Robert P. Tilton, who served as clerk of Belknap County Superior Court for 30 years. Tilton retired as clerk in 1987 and his brother, Richard, was a long-time Probate Court judge in Belknap County.

Lisbon man charged with hunting death on trial in Grafton County NORTH HAVERHILL (AP) — A New Hampshire hunter is standing trial on a charge of firing a shot that killed a 31-year-old Massachusetts man in 2011. Forty-nine-year-old Wade Holmes of Lisbon has been charged with negligent homicide and reckless shooting in the death of Kenneth Brunelle of Marlboro, Mass. Brunelle was unarmed and walking with his father and brother on opening day of firearm deer

season when he was shot once and instantly killed. The Caledonian Record reports the trial started Wednesday, starting with a juror visit to the shooting scene. The charge alleges Holmes failed to identify with certainty the target at which he was shooting, and for shooting at and killing Brunelle, whom he allegedly mistook for a deer.

A bar set too low While details are still emerging about Aaron Alexis, the man responsible for killing 12 people at the Washington Navy Yard, this much is already clear. This man never should have had a security clearance that allowed him to enter the Yard. And he never should have been permitted to buy a gun. This is a man with a history of repeated infractions as a Navy reservist and troubling run-ins with authorities. In one such episode, just last month, Alexis called police in Newport, R.I., to tell them he was being followed by three people whom he alleged had been sent to follow him by an individual he had argued with at a Virginia airport. According to the police report, Alexis complained that his followers were using a “microwave machine” to communicate with him through the walls, floor and ceiling. A sure sign of mental illness? Yes. Alexis also told police he was a Navy contractor. To their credit, the Newport police recognized that the Navy needed to know that one of its contractors was seriously unstable, and so they sent over a copy of his comments to the base police at the Navy facility in Newport. It is not clear what, if anything, happened next. Twice in August Alexis sought treatment at VA hospitals, complaining that he could not sleep. Did doctors at that facility have access to the information provided to the base police in Newport? It seems they did not. He kept his security clearance. He continued to service Navy computers. “The system didn’t pick up the red flags because the red flags in this case had not been fed into the system,” a Pentagon official told reporters. “Perhaps we need to look at the ‘filters’” that should be part of the files, the official said. How does a man who had been investigated by police departments in Seattle and Fort Worth for shooting a gun in anger, who was hearing

voices in Rhode Island, who twice sought treatment from the VA, who had told his neighbors that he suffered from PTSD and had gone as long as three days without sleep manage to get and hold onto a security clearance that allowed him access to Navy computers? To what extent did budget issues — which have led to the outsourcing of security checks to for-profit firms — play a role? And equally important, how is it that such a man could go into a gun store in Virginia and buy a shotgun? Yes, we all know the official answers. He hadn’t been committed or arrested. If that is the bar, as it appears to be, then the bar is plainly too low. Ironically, the Alexis case also teaches that gun control laws can work. Alexis reportedly tried to buy an assault weapon, but under Virginia law, he was not allowed to purchase one because he was not a Virginia resident. As horrific as the violence was at the Navy Yard, it could have been so much worse. Twelve people are dead at the hands of a man who never should have been allowed on the base. But many more are alive today because even the most limited forms of gun control save lives. The NRA likes to say that guns don’t kill; people kill. True enough. And all the more reason to ensure that mentally disturbed, angry and troubled people like Alexis are not able to walk into a gun store and purchase firearms. We may not have the facilities to treat every Aaron Alexis out there, but at the very least, we should do everything possible to prevent them from buying guns.

Shouldn’t box be opened to examine the segregated ballots? To The Daily Sun, This is not to cause any grief for our valued poll workers, but there is a problem in my opinion. My vote is very valuable to me and the same for Betty. My understanding is there were no write-ins for Ward 5 councilor in the primary. I will be honest, as the day progressed we decided that we knew the outcome in Ward 5 so we continued on with our day. The people including us, deserve to know that every ballot is counted. When there is something foreign to the completed ballot — such as a “write-in” — the ballot will be kicked out to the side.

Those ballots still need to be counted as to why the kick out! Obviously this did not happen, and if I had voted and wrote in a name to give the voters of Ward 5 a choice for city councilor in November election I would DEMAND my write-in be part of the count. If the city clerk knows of this shouldn’t “the box” be opened with a room full of witnesses — not for a recount — but to examine the ballots that were segregated? Or will this primary go down as a black mark for Laconia elections? Niel Young Laconia

LETTERS When did raising minimum wage result in reduction in poverty? To The Daily Sun, After reading Nick Vazzana’s latest, it confirms my suspicion Sandwich water is contaminated with “liberal lunacy”. Nick’s well hit the mother load. He informs us he was president of a software company. Being president offers no assurance of advanced insight about anything as we can all have witnessed watching five years of Obama bungling. Watching his Syria escapades suggests the words buffoon and president are now on the same page in the dictionary. Nick loathes the lack of hikes to the minimum wage. He suggests businesses are mean, greedy people who squash the upward mobility of Americans because they need to turn a profit to stay in business. While Nick was president, I dealt with dozens of companies as a consultant to every kind of business imaginable, service industries, hospitality, manufacturing and retail. So my insight comes with a bit of a broader understanding of the business world than Nick’s. I was also the owner of two businesses, one of which employed many minimum wage, low skilled employees. I risked my own money, as all entrepreneurs do, in hopes of creating security for my family while creating jobs for others at wages I could afford to pay and stay in business. Every business owner, no matter where or what kind, pays the LEAST wages it has to in order to remain competitive and the MOST it has to, to retain a qualified work force. There is no CONFUSION in this MOST BASIC of business logic 101. Liberal wonks like Nick think GOD left them some MORAL AUTHORITY to change this. Changing this dynamic BY WHIM, that is what we are talking about, would do far more harm than good. EVERY arbitrary action

to change basic business principles aimed to create equality has led us to one place, financial DISASTER. You want more no-down-payment, no-job homes for the less fortunate? The Nicks of the world were YELLING for that “equality fix “ six years ago. Look at the harm and suffering that ONE EQUALITY CONCEPT created. Nick wants the minimum wage raised for equality and fairness. We have raised the minimum wage NUMEROUS times. In fact if it were adjusted only for inflation (as it should be) the minimum wage today would be $4.50 not $7.25. I ask Nick, did any of the previous increases to the minimum wage reduce the poverty rate? Nope, the poverty rate is at a record as I write this. Did raising it reduce the number of people in need of welfare? Nope, We have 47 million people on welfare, a record number. Did the other hikes in the minimum wage help employment? Nope, we now have the LOWEST PERCENTAGE of the population working today than we have had in 30 years. Raising the minimum wage kills job creation, increases layoffs, forces job sharing, cuts employee work hours, and INCREASES the PRICES FOR EVERYTHING YOU BUY, further harming the buying power of those most vulnerable in our society. Nick, FDR and Obama are all “ equality SNAKE OIL, salesmen”. There noble ideas all end in one place, THE TOILET. Any one for another lowinterest, no down payment, no-job home to produce EQUALITY? Or for higher wages that produce no more work output but HIGHER PRICES? BOTH ARE CERTIFIED brain dead, losing ideas as we have seen before. Tony Boutin Gilford

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, September 14, 2013 — Page 7

LETTERS Judge had to work hard to find that tax ‘credits’ are same as ‘taxes’ To The Daily Sun, Concerning Strafford County Superior Court Justice John Lewis’ June 17 ruling, in Bill Duncan et al. v The State of New Hampshire et al. and Network for Education Opportunity et al: Let’s take a look at the Tax Credit Education Program, SB-372, a law passed in 2012 by overriding Governor Lynch’s veto. It enabled businesses in N.H. to contribute to scholarship organizations which in turn would offer scholarships to qualified families who would use the funds to help defer the cost of sending their child to the school of their choice be it private or public, some could even receive funds for home schooling. The donating company then receives a state tax credit for up to 85 percent of their donation. Let’s take a look at some applicable articles of our state Constitution. In Part 1, Article IV it says, “Among the natural rights, some are in their very nature unalienable, because no equivalent can be given or received of them. Of this kind are the RIGHTS OF CONSCIENCE.” This right of conscience cannot be overstated for it follows directly after Article III, which explains the need to surrender some natural rights in order to protect others. It is therefore making it clear that this right of conscience should not be surrendered up to that society in that trade off. You can read it for yourselves at constitution/constitution.html. Part 1 Articles V and VI should be read for they encourage the practice of religion and recommends it as a support for good government. We have in the education tax credit program a bill that takes up the cause of the poor and extends the freedom of conscience, which our Constitution considers unalienable, to those of lesser means and Judge Lewis doesn’t even mention it in his decision, in denying funds to religious schools. He instead works long and hard to find precedent to call the tax credits provided to donating businesses, taxes. He is not bound by our Constitution to do so, but he works it hard to come to that conclusion. Judge Lewis can’t have it that the state is acknowledging the donations from these companies as fulfilling their obligation toward education and offering a tax credit for doing so. He has to have it that this donation is tax money, because it would have flowed into the tax system otherwise. The bill itself claims exemption from the codification into law of the precedent of counting a tax credit as tax money. This precedent seems to have risen from convenience, rather than having the company pay the tax and the state then reimbursing them, and barring

an ulterior motive, constitutionally need not be considered as an unalterable principle. Considering the actual history of the passing of the Blaine Amendment in N.H.; SB-372 should be seen as an honest and upright provision for not forcing our poorest citizens to pay double, therefore making it beyond their means, to choose an education for their children that falls within the dictates of their conscience, which would comply with Art. IV, Art. VI and Art. 83 of our Constitution. Rather than admitting the circumstance of the passage of the Blaine Amend. to Art. 83 (noted in my Sept. 12 letter that the Blaine Amendment was adopted to preserve protestant education) and honestly assessing the current state of public education, the judge turns a blind eye to the historical evidence and waves it off as indiscernible. Judge Lewis then injects his own bias into it: Quoting professor Charles Clark saying, “ the amendments purpose was simply the protection of the public school system and prevention of diversion of funds away from it.” and again “that a discernible major purpose of the No-Aid Clause, when enacted, was to promote and sustain public schools, which, were, over time losing their protestant orientation.” As if that shift, which has abundantly manifest itself in the 20th and 21st Centuries, implies neutrality. With the wave of the the wand of professor Clark, Judge Lewis severs the Blaine Amendment of Art.83 from the rest of the Constitution, and from the essence of its purpose as understood by the N.H. voters who passed it. In doing this he makes the Blaine Amendment to our Constitution a bait and switch provision, as our public schools are no longer protestant in nature. In fact they teach values that are quite the opposite of protestant values, which the voters of N.H. voted to preserve in 1876, in voting for the Blaine Amendment. In fact Christian and even Catholic schools, as they have moved closer in America to the Protestant model, resemble more closely the education model which the voters in N.H. in 1876 were trying to preserve, than that which our public schools have become. In making this decision, Judge Lewis has moved from his role as one who’s job it is to rule according to our Constitution, to that of a politician playing hardball, cleansing our citizenry of “improper” religious bias. Our N.H. Supreme Court should overturn this ruling, for even if most of N.H.’s citizens do not know the history of our Blaine Amendment, God knows and He will judge rightly. To our good if we judge rightly ourselves, and to our hurt if we judge corruptly. John Demakowski Franklin

Don’t imply we supplied Iraq with poison gas or germ warfare To The Daily Sun, Funny thing happened a couple days ago, Henry Osmer wrote he would no longer respond to my letters. No big deal but that doesn’t mean I won’t respond to his. In today’s paper Henry has a letter where he claims we (the U.S., I presume) sold weapons of mass destruction to Iraq.

Henry and I were both in the military during the same era. Every branch of service were universally given CBR training. C = Chemical (poison gas), B = Biological (germ warfare) and R= Radiological (nukes or dirty bombs). For five decades these three categories were Weapons of Mass Destruction.

To provide health insurance for another 5% we plan to do harm to 85% To The Daily Sun, Do you want to keep your doctor? Do you want to keep your health insurance (the insurance that you understand, that meets your needs, and that you can afford)? When President Obama wanted your support for Obamacare, he promised these things. Are you unhappy that your health insurance premiums are skyrocketing (on average more than $2,000), although President Obama promised your premiums would go down by $2,500? Millions of Americans are suffering because so many Obamacare promises are false. But now, if you object to President Obama’s broken promises, you are called an “extremist”. Obamacare is destroying jobs, suppressing job creation, and turning millions of full-time, into part-time jobs. Many employers who are struggling with increased, rather than lower, health insurance premiums are cutting workers, cutting spousal insurance coverage, or passing on increased costs to employees. Facing new Obamacare regulations, restrictions, and taxes, many hospitals, clinics, and companies working on new medical devices and techniques are cutting jobs and services ... which means poorer future healthcare

for patients. Former DNC Chairman Howard Dean and others now admit that Obamacare inserts, between doctors and patients, a government bureaucrat who determines if life-saving (e.g., cancer drugs) or lifeenhancing (e.g., hip replacements) treatments can be provided. Obamacare taxes raise the cost of health care, especially for people with high medical expenses. To provide insurance for 5 percent more Americans, Obamacare is harming the insurance and health care for the 85 percent of Americans who already had health insurance. One of its authors, Senator Baucus, called Obamacare a “train-wreck”. Our country was far better off without Obamacare. Are you afraid to be called an “extremist” for wanting to help avoid this train-wreck which harms so many Americans? If not, sign the petition at and call or e-mail Senators Ayotte (202-224-3324) and Shaheen (202-224-2841), and Congresswomen Shea-Porter (202-2255456) and Koster (202-225-5206) and tell them to vote to defund and repeal Obamacare.

JFK from page one ing a media event Wednesday night at the Belmont Public Library that was called to promote attention to a November 17 (8 p.m.) television show about Murphy and Pavlick that will run on the Smithsonian Channel. The documentary was filmed in July in Belmont and much of the footage was shot at the library. Another production about the episode will be featured on the Travel Channel this fall. “It was kind of a scary time,” she said. “We never told the kids too much about it because we didn’t want to scare them.” N.H. Dept. Public Safety Commissioner Earl Sweeney, a former Belmont police chief and a volunteer sergeant in the town’s police department recounted the 1960 story and it’s aftermath. The way Sweeney remembers it, Pavlick was an older man who had relocated to Belmont after he retired as a U.S. Postal Service employee in South Boston. Sweeny said if he were to use today’s lingo to describe him, he would describe Pavlick as “sour” and kind of a “nut-job.” He lived on Dearborn Street in a rundown old house. Sweeney said he was the kind of guy who was “very vocal” at annual town meetings and at selectmen’s meetings. For example, at one point, he said, Pavlick got the idea that the water commissioners were poisoning his water with chlorine and the state police confiscated his guns for a while after he threatened them. “He was a character,” said Sweeney. “More vocal than dangerous.” Or so he thought in 1960. In early 1960, Pavlick focused his wrath toward then Sen. John Fitzgerald Kennedy, who was running as the Democratic nominee for president. Sweeney said Pavlick’s greatest concern was Kennedy’s Catholicism and from preceding page and political fields started referring to conventional weapons as WMD. Sounds so much more dramatic you know, better to bash America with. Back to my first paragraph regarding Henry’s WMD statement — in his first attempt to deceive folks he use the “poison gas” as his term. Called

the fear that should he be elected president, the country would be run by the Pope and the Catholic Church. “Pavlick hated Catholics,” Sweeney said, adding that the man would go around and tell anyone who would listen that if Kennedy was elected “someone should shoot him.” After Kennedy was elected, according to Sweeney and press clippings from the time, Pavlick either sold or gave away his house to charity, packed all his worthy belongings into an “old Buick” and left town. But Sweeney said he would send “disjointed” postcards to a few of the residents back in Belmont, all of them from the various places he visited. Tom Murphy, at the time, was a brand new postmaster with a wife (Polly) and six daughters. As Pavlick’s postcards would come into the Belmont Post Office, Murphy would sort them into people’s boxes and he noticed the postmarks always came from the same places that Kennedy was visiting while campaigning. One day he mentioned it to the police. Sweeney said he and the chief did a “little investigating” and learned Pavlick had purchased some sticks of dynamite from the local hardware store. He apparently told the hardware store owner that he needed to remove some tree stumps from his property. Sweeney said the chief (he was one of only two officers in Belmont in 1960) went to Pavlick’s old property and didn’t see any signs of blasted tree stumps. Concerned, Murphy notified the U.S. Postmaster General who in turn notified the FBI and the U.S. Secret Service. Sweeney explained that the FBI had just started using the earliest form of the N.C.I.C. or National Crime Information Center — the system still used by law enforcement. out on that he then resorted to WMD’s as his next best smear term. Both he and I know what the true definition of WMDs are. So Mr. Osmer can expect me to roll up a paper and smack him on the nose and say “bad” every time he tries to fool the people.

The information about Pavlick’s car and his description were entered into the N.C.I.C. system. According to Sweeney, Kennedy had wanted some rest before he took office so in December of 1960 he took his family to the family’s West Palm Beach compound. Pavlick had followed. He rigged his car with the dynamite and looked for an opportunity to blow up both himself and Kennedy. Sweeney said Pavlick realized he couldn’t get into the Kennedy compound so he waited until Kennedy went to Sunday Mass. He followed the limousine to the church but changed his mind when he saw that Kennedy’s wife Jacqueline and daughter Caroline were also in the limo. As he followed Kennedy to his next stop, a Florida motorcycle officer recognized the plate and description of Pavlick’s car and stopped him. Local and federal police said the car was rigged to explode and Pavlick admitted to his plans to kill him. He told police he didn’t blow it up at the Catholic Church because he didn’t want to kill innocent women and children. Pavlick was charged with attempting to kill Kennedy and was committed to a federal mental facility in St. Louis, Missouri. In due course, Postmaster Murphy’s name came to light and he was given a “Beyond the Call of Duty” pin in April of 1961 — one of two ever issued in New England according to Union Leader reporter Earl Anderson. Sweeney recalled that it was the Boston Globe that originally reported the Murphy-Pavlick story. After Kennedy was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas on November 22, 1963, the federal government apparently lost interest in Pavlick and all the charges were dropped. A Missouri federal judge ruled he was insane so he was not released. He spent the next six years being shuffled from state hospital to state hospital ultimately landing in the N.H. State Hospital around 1966. Pavlick began a letter-writing campaign. He sent hundreds of letters to influential people all over the county including the Union Leader, eventually capturing Loeb’s attention. He also wrote to Murphy. In one

instance he included a picture of Murphy sitting at his desk and called him “Stinking rat! Blasted ignorant immoral shanty Irish” as was reported by a local newspaper at the time. In 1966, Loeb began to call attention to Pavlick because he had never been indicted by a grand jury nor had he been tried in a court of law, yet was still incarcerated. Loeb, in one of his now-legendary front-page editorials, demanded that Pavlick should either be recharged with something or released. People throughout New Hampshire, except in Belmont, rallied to his cause. Postmaster Murphy became the whipping boy of many who interpreted his actions as being akin to being a rat. In one newspaper article written in 1966, Murphy had told the reporter that if he had to do it all over again he might not. “’Now six years later,’ Murphy claims, “’The press have made me out to be an idiot by printing only one side of the story.’” He said six years earlier, the same press had made him into a hero and now that some had began to champion Pavlick’s cause, they made him feel like he had done something wrong. Sweeney recalled writing a letter defending Murphy that ran in the Union Leader and one selectman in Belmont later tried to get him fired for writing it. Under pressure from Loeb, the N.H. State Attorney’s Office petitioned for Pavlick’s release and in due course, he was freed. Polly Murphy and Sweeney remembered Pavlick would drive his car to the street in Belmont where they lived and watch her family. Sweeney recalled that he would sometimes sit outside the Murphy home but since he was the only cop in town he would often get called to a crime and have to leave the Murphy’s unattended. On Wednesday, Polly Murphy remembered her husband saying that if Pavlick or one of his supporters wanted to come gunning for him they should know he “wasn’t a bad shot himself.” Pavlick continued to harass the Murphys until he aged to the point where he was taken in by the N.H. Veterans Home. In 1975 he died at the age of 88.

MOUTH from page 2 stressful,” said Kessler, who has solicited donations to help keep his family afloat financially during his unpaid suspension. “But I feel in my heart I’m doing the right thing. Yeah, I made some videos with some choice language, but that’s my right. That’s my freedom.” A handful of members of Kessler’s “Constitution Security Force,” a progun group that critics have likened to a private militia, showed up in support Thursday, openly carrying assault rifles and handguns. Some of Kessler’s supporters got into a heated argument with an opponent. Nahas said the borough claimed that Kessler made improper use of a stateadministered purchasing program to buy discounted tires for his personal vehicle, failed to submit required crime data, and made derogatory comments about borough officials, among other allegations that he asserted were an attempt to “move it away from the

videos that you’ve all seen.” “None of these allegations have any merit whatsoever,” Nahas said. “These are simply bald-faced lies to try to terminate my client.” John Dean, the borough’s lawyer, declined to comment after the hearing, calling it a personnel matter. Kessler supporter Blue Van Cott, 35, said he believes Kessler is standing up for American freedoms that are under assault. “We’re getting to the point where you can’t have salt, you can’t have a soda because it’s too big for you. This is bigger than guns. Somebody had to stand up and say enough is enough is enough,” said Van Cott, who had a .45-caliber handgun strapped to his leg. But Pennsylvania political activist Gene Stilp, who verbally sparred with Kessler’s supporters outside the hearing, said Kessler should be fired. Stilp said he has filed complaints about Kessler with state and federal agencies.

Belmont Police recover car stolen in Manchester

BELMONT — Police arrested a man Wednesday night who was driving a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee that had been reported stolen from Manchester. Jacob A. Jason, of 103 Blueberry Lane in Laconia is charged with one misdemeanor count of disobeying an officer, one felony count of driving after being deemed an habitual offender, and one felony count of receiving stolen property. Jason appeared by video in the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division yesterday morning and Judge Lawrence MacLeod ordered him held on $5,000 cash or corporate surety. Affidavits said police were behind the Jeep while it was headed south on Rte. 106 when they noticed one of the brake lights was out. Officers radioed the license plate number to dispatch and learned the Jeep had been reported stolen by a Manchester woman. When the Jeep turned abruptly into a convenience store, officers pulled in behind it. Police affidavits reported one officer read Jason his Miranda rights and asked him for some identification. When they asked him if he knew the Jeep was stolen, he initially said he didn’t know anything

about it. Jason also allegedly gave them a false name and birthday. A second officer found an alternative identification card with Jason’s picture on it in the Jeep. During his booking, Jason told police that he did know the Jeep was stolen and that an unknown person put the car keys in his mailbox Wednesday night and told him the Jeep was “in the Lakes Region.” He allegedly told them he was returning the Jeep to its owner. Manchester Police confirmed the owner had reported it stolen. — Gail Ober

FOOD STAMPS from page 2 have been wary of efforts to slim the program. The White House has threatened to veto the bill. House leaders were still shoring up votes on the 89 Lake St. Rt. 3 Weirs Blvd. Laconia • (603) 524-0008 bill just hours before the vote. To make their case, the Republican leaders emphasized that the bill targets able-bodied adults who don’t have dependents. And they say the broader work requirements in the bill are similar to the 1996 welfare law that led to a decline in people receiving that government assistance. “This bill is designed to give people a hand when they need it most,” Cantor said on the floor just before the bill passed. “And most people don’t choose to be on food stamps. Most people want a job ... They want what we want.” The new work requirements proposed in the bill would allow states to require 20 hours of work activities per week from any able-bodied adult with a child over age 1 if that person has child care avail50¢ Wings • $5.99 Burgers able.

POPE from page 2 saved you. And the ministers of the church must be ministers of mercy above all.” The comments contained no change in church teaching, and the pope said reform should not happen quickly. Still, it was the pope’s clearest declaration yet of a break in tone and style from his immediate predecessors. John Paul II and Benedict XVI were both intellectuals for whom doctrine was paramount, an orientation that guided the selection of a generation of bishops and cardinals who now face making a dramatic turnabout in how they preach. The interviews were conducted by Spadaro over three days in August at the Vatican hotel where Francis has chosen to live rather than in the papal

apartments. The Vatican vets all content in Civilta Cattolica, and the pope approved the Italian version of the article, which America magazine, the Jesuit journal in the U.S., translated into English. The admonition will especially resonate in the United States, where some bishops have already publicly voiced dismay that Francis hasn’t hammered home church teaching on abortion, contraception and homosexuality — areas of the culture wars where U.S. bishops often put themselves on the front lines. U.S. bishops were behind Benedict’s crackdown on American nuns, who were accused of letting doctrine take a backseat to their social justice work caring for the poor — precisely the priority that Francis is endorsing.

OBAMACARE from page 2 a possible filibuster of legislation to prevent a partial government shutdown, added the Texas Republican. That was a step further than Sen. Mike Lee of Utah — Cruz’s partner in a summertime run of “Defund Obamacare” television commercials — was willing to go. President Barack Obama’s health care law “is not worth causing a shutdown over,” he said. The two men spoke at a news conference with several House Republicans where lawmakers stressed they were unified and thanked Speaker John Boehner for agreeing to tie the anti-shutdown and anti-Obamacare provisions into one bill. That bill is on track for House passage on Friday, with a Senate showdown to follow.

The House intends to move quickly next week with a separate bill to put the health care law on ice, this one a measure that also would allow the Treasury to avoid a default that could destabilize the economy. Boehner himself sought to redirect the political fire at Obama, accusing him of being ready to negotiate with Russian President Vladimir Putin over Syria but not engage with Republicans on raising the nation’s debt limit, an issue that could lead to national default. But he also got in a subtle jab at Cruz and Senate conservatives who have been clamoring for weeks for a showdown on the health care law. “I expect my Senate colleagues to be up for the battle,” he said.

BARN from page one sections at Lake Champlain and shipped by flatbed rail to Lakeport, where it was reassembled and put into service the very next summer. This Saturday invited guests to his “man-cave”, better known to his friends as ‘’The Barn’’, will get to see Diane Nyren’s recently completed mural of the Weirs Channel Bridge on the wall of the structure’s “Weirs Room”, as well as Nyren’s painting of the Mount headed in from the lake. “The Barn” is actually a large metal building in the former Annalee Dolls complex on Reservoir Road. When the open house for invited guests wraps up around 2:30 p.m., the general public will be welcome to take a tour as well. There’s other reminders of the Weirs in the room and next to it, in a large room, there ‘s a wide-ranging collection of baseball photographs, including Ted Williams and Babe Ruth and even Bill Monboquette, author of a no-hitter for the Red Sox in 1962, as well as autographed baseball bats. ‘’I can remember sitting around the kitchen table during World War II and right after the war listening to the Red Sox games on radio’’ says Dearborn, who at one time had a 10-seat suite over third base at Fenway Park and now has a 21-seat suite on the first base side. ‘’I reserve one day there for myself each year. It’s a little hard to get around the ballpark for me these days but I still love to watch a baseball game. There are a lot of good memories for me at Fenway Park.’’ ‘’The Barn’’ also houses Dearborn’s auto collection, as well as the large collection of sports memorabilia, and has two bars — one upstairs and the other downstairs in an area known as ‘’Dirty Dick’s Garage’’ — where there’s other memorabilia, including a collection of 200 Zippo lighters. Five years after riding the Mount onto the lake, Dearborn says he can recall exactly where he was in August of 1945, when World War II ended with the surrender of Japan. ‘’I was in mid-air diving off from a platform at Irwin’s Winnipesaukee Garden.

the tower up and I used to dive from there with my brother, Bob, and Bob and John Lawton to recover bottles which had been tossed into the lake. We used to get two cents a bottle. Anyway, I was in mid-air when I heard people cheering and singing. I got out of the water and ran right up to Tarlson’s Arcade. People were gathered around singing and hollering. There was a big parade right down through the Weirs which was led by three former Confederate soldiers from the Civil War encampment at the Weirs,’’ Dearborn recalls. He said that his family, headed by Fred Hershell ‘’Tot’’ Dearborn was always in the restaurant business and for years ran Dearborn’s Diner, a downtown Laconia institution which was located where Sunrise Towers now stands, Dearborn, who would go on to found Eptam Plastics and make his mark on the Lakes Region manufacturing scene, credits the American military with

providing him with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed. He joined the service in 1954, right out of high school. ‘’They sent me to electronics school and it made my life. I learned so much. After I got out of the service I worked for a year at the diner and then started applying what I learned in the service,’’ says Dearborn, who worked for Kinsman Organ in downtown Laconia before the building was sold to Seeburg Electronics. He then landed a job with InsulFab, a plastic parts fabricator in Boston, for whom he worked for 27 years while living in Watertown, Mass., where he met his wife. ‘’It was a wonderful job but it was time for me to go out on my own,’’ says Dearborn, who started Eptam with three other partners in the kitchen of Ernie Paquette’s closed restaurant just across the bridge in West Franklin and that’s where the Eptam name see next page

Red Sox clinch playoff berth BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox clinched their first postseason berth since 2009, beating the Baltimore Orioles 3-1 Thursday night behind John Lackey’s two-hitter. Coming off a last-place finish and a 69-93 record — their most losses since 1965, the Red Sox have rebounded under first-year manager John Farrell and ensured at least a wild-card berth in the postseason. They lowered their magic number to two for clinching the AL East. Just before Adam Jones’ game-ending flyout to right, the crowd chanted, “Lackey! Lackey!” And after Daniel Nava caught the ball, catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia embraced Lackey in front of the mound as Red Sox players came out of the dugout for their usual postgame handshakes. Earlier in the day, the Los Angeles Dodgers became the first team to earn a playoff berth when they clinched the NL West. Boston scored all its runs in the second on Stephen Drew’s two-run

homer and Dustin Pedroia’s RBI single. Lackey (10-12) held the Orioles hitless until Jones homered with out one in the seventh, his 32nd this season. He right-hander allowed a one-out single to J.J. Hardy in the eighth, striking out eight and walked two in his 16th career complete game. Lackey, sidelined last season following elbow-ligament replacement surgery in his right elbow, lowered his ERA to 3.44. He has received the least run support among Boston starters. In John Farrell’s first season as manager following the dismal oneseason reign of Bobby Valentine, the Red Sox have led the division since after play on Aug. 25 and entered Thursday having topped the AL East in 46 of the previous 49 days. They have 94 wins in their first 154 decisions since going 94-60 in 1950. Baltimore began the day one game behind Texas for the second AL wildcard spot.

Hanover High cancels homecoming game over skits HANOVER (AP) — A New Hampshire high school has forfeited its homecoming football game after a majority of the team’s players were suspended for their behavior during a pre-season party. In a letter to parents, Hanover High School officials said team members met at a player’s house on Aug. 24 after practice. Freshman players were asked to perform skits meant to roast senior players. The Valley News reports the school said the themes were of a sexual nature that objectified women. Principal Justin Campbell said the gathering was not coach-sanctioned.

Campbell and other school officials met and decided to forfeit this Friday’s game against Kearsarge Regional High School. Campbell said the students violated sections of the school conduct code that prohibit “actions that humiliate, degrade or physically harm others” and “uncivil behavior directed toward self and/or others.” He said there was no violence, injuries, drugs, or alcohol, and that no laws were broken. School officials said they are considering additional punishments; none of the students involved were suspended and the team is practicing as normal.

from preceding page name comes from — Ernie Paquette Tool and Machining — and moved the operation to Blaisdell Avenue in Laconia before building a 15,000-squarefoot plant in an industrial park next to Lily Pond in Gilford, on Laconia Airport Authority property. As demand for Eptam’s products grew in the 1990s Dearborn added a 26,000-square-foot building and then relocated to Northfield, where the business is now located in a 186,000-square-foot facility which runs three shifts a day, seven days a week, and employs 148 people. ‘’When we got into the medical devices field that’s when we really started to grow. Today our biggest concern is finding the right people to keep up with the demand for our products,’’ says Dearborn, who says he was really pleased a few years back when Eptam

was named one of the best companies to work for in the entire state. He says that at the age of 77 and having lost his wife five years ago he has no intention of retiring. ‘’I get to work at 5:30 to 5:45 every morning. I intend to work as long as I can walk. I think I’d go crazy if I wasn’t working.’’ Dearborn says he started collecting cars about 10 years ago and his collection includes Packards from 1933 and 1948, a 1941 Studebaker, a 1960 Studebaker Lark and a 1963 Studebaker Avanti, a 1955 Ford Customline and a 1969 T-Bird, as well as a 1951 Plymouth Concord and other cars, including Oldsmobiles and Buicks. ‘’Once I started collecting cars, I went crazy. But I’m not looking for any more of them,’’ says Dearborn. Next summer, “The Barn” will be the site of the 60th reunion of the Laconia High School Class of 1954.

3 hat tricks for sharp-shooting sophomore

Inter-Lakes’s Rotonnelli has scored 10 goals in first 5 games of the season By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

MEREDITH — Inter-Lakes sophomore Caitlin Rotonnelli is peppering opposing goalies with her quick moves and well-placed shots this year, racking up 10 goals in the first five games for the Lakers, who were 4-1 going into yesterday’s game at White Mountain Regional High School in Whitefield. And while she’s quick at putting a shot on the net, having already scored three hat tricks (three goals in a game), she’s also quick to praise her teammates for their contributions. ‘’It’s not just one Caitlin Rotonnelli, Inter-Lakes High School sophomore, has recorded 10 goals in the first five games person.

Sant Bani topples New Hampton for 1st time in 12 years Sant Bani School’s soccer team gained an upset 2-1 victory over the New Hampton JVA’s on Monday afternoon. After the game, SBS coach Todd Schongalla said, “It’s been twelve years since we’ve been able to beat them. What an effort.” Both teams were evenly matched, as play was up and down the field well into the first half. Sant Bani struck first in the 22ndminute as junior Zhenglin Yu found the back of the net, on a pass from senior co-captain Harrison Evans. Shortly thereafter, New Hampton came roaring back and would have tied the game had it not been for the goaltending of junior Ander Treviño Aizpurua, who blocked consecutive New Hampton shots at point blank range. Not to be denied, with less than a minute to play in the half, New Hampton’s Nick LaBate and Richard Prey finally got one behind Treviño and sent the teams to the break locked up at 1 apiece, giving the crowd a chance to catch their breath. New Hampton came out in the second half riding the wave of LaBate’s late first-half goal and kept the pressure on Sant Bani’s defense. After ten minutes of play, mostly in their own end of the field, Sant Bani’s Evans took the ball almost the length of the field, putting his team up 2-1 and shifting the momentum for what proved to be the rest of the match. Sant Bani next faces White Mountain School, Saturday at 1 pm. RICH VELASQUEZ YOUTH SPORTS EQUIPMENT FOUNDATION

PSU meteorology professor authors book about Hurricane of 1938

PLYMOUTH — On the morning of September 21, 1938, people throughout the northeastern United States awoke to a dim red sky and high humidity. Weather reports gave no indication of severe weather; there was no such thing as weather satellites, computer modeling or any other modern day forecasting technology.

MEREDITH — After a successful series of basic drawing classes at VynnArt Gallery in Meredith on June 2013, Moultonboro artist Estelle Smith has agreed to resume Saturday classes this September and continue them through the autumn months as desired. Weekly Saturday classes lasses will begin on Saturday, September 21 from 10 a.m. to noon. Smith, whose watercolor work and pencil drawings are well known throughout the region, is a devoted teacher, offering classes in basic drawing and watercolor techniques. She notes that “I have learned through the years that great artists are all great ‘basic drawers’. Their preliminary drawings are masterpieces. Amateur artists too frequently bypass the time and effort necessary to perfect

these skills, just like amateur pianists avoid practicing scales, and amateur golfers bypass the practice range to head to the first tee. The result: they will always produce “amateur” work. Based on a lot of experience, I have no doubt that students who work to perfect their basic drawing skills will see a steady improvement in the caliber of their art work, whatever media they choose to work in,” says Smith. VynnArt Gallery is located at 30 Main Street, Suite A, Meredith, NH. Classes work well for students of all skill levels, including beginners. The materials requirement is minimal, and classes are affordable. For more details email Estelle at

Dear Annie: I have been with my husband for 19 years, married for nine. I love him and never had any serious issues with our marriage until four months ago. That’s when I discovered that my husband was having an affair. He’s been lying to me about it for nearly three years, telling me his work schedule changed. We sought marriage counseling, but he wouldn’t go back after the first session. He knows I have all of the details of his relationship with this woman. He says he’s trying to work on our marriage, but I am not sure he is sincere. I thought I could trust him, and he ripped my heart out. Annie, I have processed all of the disappointments and believe I can move on. But my husband says he wants to save our marriage. I don’t want to set myself up to be hurt like this again. What should I do? -- Need a Word of Truth from Him Dear Need: A man who truly wants to save his marriage would go back with you for counseling, work on the hard issues for as long as it takes and be completely transparent in all his dealings so you can learn to trust him again. Tell him that’s the deal if he wants you to stay. If he is unwilling to take those steps, it means he is not ready to change the mindset and behavior that led to the affair. We hope he will agree to do the necessary work. If not, please see a good lawyer and get counseling on your own to help prepare you for the next step. Dear Annie: A few of your readers have written saying that restaurant etiquette has flown the coop. Well, here’s my gripe: Nothing bothers me more than watching an adult place a diapered infant on the table. There is nothing separating that diaper from the dishes. Restaurant tables are barely swept of crumbs before another customer sits down. I can only imagine what might leak out of that infant. Ewwwwww. -- M.L. Dear M.L.: There’s worse. We’re sure to hear from read-

ers who have witnessed infants being changed on the table while patrons were eating around them. We know parents appreciate those restroom facilities that are not only clean, but provide changing tables for just this purpose. There are also foldable, portable, washable changing pads that parents can bring with them and use anywhere (other than a restaurant table, please). Dear Annie: I had to respond to “Venting in Oregon,” the couple that was disgusted and annoyed by the noise from the neighbor’s two toddlers. I had a noisy, screaming young child myself at one time. I spent hours every day dealing with the continuous screaming and chaos. It was a real party to take him to public places, especially when I had to go to the grocery store. I never knew what kind of meltdown would ensue. I only knew that others in the vicinity would make comments about me, my parenting style, my child’s behavior and anything else unkind and negative that they could think to say, always making sure it was loud enough for me to hear. I was trying so hard, and it truly disturbed me to be criticized openly by strangers who had no idea what my days and nights were like with this child. He was finally diagnosed with an autistic spectrum disorder and began to receive appropriate therapies. It turned out he was brilliant once he could focus properly. He is now an absolutely lovely person who is well liked and respected by people who know him. So to “Venting in Oregon,” if you can’t help your neighbors with their children, at least try to be as patient and gracious as you can manage. No one really knows what goes on in someone else’s home. -- Been There, Done That

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It’s an all-or-nothing game today. Go for your first choice, and if you don’t get it, play a different game altogether. Don’t settle for your second choice -- that will only set the stage for struggles ahead. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Focus on what needs to be accomplished for your personal fulfillment to the exclusion of all other riffraff. Comparisons or assertions about what others should do can only diminish you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Meeting up with others who share your unconventional interests will augment your fortunes in the weeks to come. If your tribe can’t assemble today, make plans to do so in the near future. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 20). If you have any vices, you won’t have time to tend to them this year because your goals keep you too busy. Domestic improvements include spending more time with people who brighten your environment. You’ll add a skill to your set and start making money with it in November. January highlights your new image. Cancer and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 13, 3, 22, 9 and 17.

by Chad Carpenter

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There is no absolute security in life. Chasing security will only exhaust you. Instead, you’ll accept your vulnerability and suddenly have the energy and vitality needed to enjoy the moment. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re no bore, but thrill seekers should look elsewhere. You believe that life needn’t be a roller coaster ride. Someone with a “no drama” policy will be attracted to your stable, grounded nature. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re trying to strike a deal that works on all levels in a way that’s fair to both parties. Arrangements in your personal life take longer to sort out because the terms are not written in a contract. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Popularity is pretty simple these days. The person who is the most fun has the most friends. You like the challenge of finding new and interesting ways to stay lighthearted. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There’s a certain amount of domestic work that comes with the basics of modern life. Make sure it’s equally portioned among housemates. A situation in which one person is constantly cleaning up after the other will get old fast. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). In these last few days of the solar return through your sign, you’ll be filled with joy. Let it overflow. You never know who is hurting and could be saved by your smile. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Sometimes you become so obsessed with the symbol you want that you forget to ask yourself why you want it. How do you expect to feel once you arrive? What else could you do to capture that feeling? SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Just because you give your love unconditionally doesn’t mean you’re fine with people disappointing you. Let your loved ones know what you expect. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). No relationship is perfect, but you try to appreciate and play to each person’s particular strengths. Because of this, you wind up in a sweet arrangement tonight.

Page 22 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, September 20, 2013

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, Sept. 20, the 263rd day of 2013. There are 102 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 20, 1962, James Meredith, a black student, was blocked from enrolling at the University of Mississippi by Democratic Gov. Ross R. Barnett. (Meredith was later admitted.) On this date: In 1519, Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan and his crew set out from Spain on five ships to find a western passage to the Spice Islands. (Magellan was killed enroute, but one of his ships eventually circled the world.) In 1870, Italian troops took control of the Papal States, leading to the unification of Italy. In 1873, panic swept the floor of the New York Stock Exchange in the wake of railroad bond defaults and bank failures. In 1884, the National Equal Rights Party was formed during a convention of suffragists in San Francisco; the convention nominated Belva Ann Bennett Lockwood for president. In 1911, the British liner RMS Olympic collided with the Royal Navy cruiser HMS Hawke off the Isle of Wight; although seriously damaged, the Olympic was able to return to Southampton under its own power. In 1947, former New York City Mayor Fiorello La Guardia died. In 1958, Martin Luther King Jr. was seriously wounded during a book signing at a New York City department store when Izola Curry stabbed him in the chest. (Curry was later found mentally incompetent.) In 1967, the Cunard liner RMS Queen Elizabeth 2 was christened by Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II in Clydebank, Scotland. In 1973, in their so-called battle of the sexes, tennis star Billie Jean King defeated Bobby Riggs in straight sets, 6-4, 6-3, 6-3, at the Houston Astrodome. In 1979, Jean-Bedel Bokassa (boh-KAH’-sah), self-styled head of the Central African Empire, was overthrown in a French-supported coup while on a visit to Libya. In 1980, Spectacular Bid, ridden by Bill Shoemaker, ran as the only entry in the Woodward Stakes at Belmont Park in New York after three potential challengers dropped out in horse racing’s first walkover since 1949. In 1996, President Bill Clinton announced that he was signing the Defense of Marriage Act, a bill outlawing same-sex marriages, but said it should not be used as an excuse for discrimination, violence or intimidation against gays and lesbians. Five years ago: The Bush administration asked Congress for the power to buy $700 billion in toxic assets clogging the financial system and threatening the economy as negotiations began on the largest bailout since the Great Depression. A suicide truck bombing at the Marriott Hotel in Islamabad, Pakistan, killed 53 people, including the Czech ambassador. One year ago: On a day when thousands of angry Pakistanis tried to make their way to the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad, the embassy aired an ad on Pakistani TV showing President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton denouncing an anti-Islamic video produced in the United States.

Broadband plan being developed ‘Back to Back Bach’ performance LACONIA — The Lakes Region Planning Commission (LRPC) has been working to help communities better understand the availability of high-speed broadband internet access and plan for reliable, affordable broadband internet solutions. The ability to access high-speed internet will have a significant impact on the economic development of a community now and well into the future. An initial version of the NH Lakes Region Broadband Plan has been drafted and the Lakes Region Broadband Stakeholder Group (LRBSG) is interested in hearing the thoughts, opinions, and questions of others

regarding broadband. It will be discussed at the next LRBSG meeting on Thursday, September 26 at 9 a.m. in the LRPC First Floor Conference Room, where participants will be reviewing and discussing the draft regional broadband plan that will help guide the future growth and distribution of high speed internet in the region. The LRPC encourages all members of the public who are interested in any aspect of high-speed broadband service to attend.

at the Taylor Community tonight LACONIA — Whether seated at the piano or standing before an orchestra, baton in hand, Vladimir Svoysky’s approach to music is pure passion born from his formative years in his native Russia. Svoysky will perform the next concert of the 2013 Taylor Community Music Series “Back to Back Bach” on Saturday, September 21 at 7 p.m. in Taylor’s Woodside Building. 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.” The event is free and open to the public. Pre-registration required as seating is limited. To RSVP call 5245600 or email rsvp@taylorcommunity. org.

Firewood workshop planned for Oct. 1 BOSCAWEN — The UNH Cooperative Extension program will be sponsoring a firewood workshop on Tuesday, October 1 from 1–4 p.m. at the UNH Cooperative Extension Merrimack County Office in Boscawen.

Marquis of the NH Department of Agriculture. Kyle Lombard of the New Hampshire Division of Forests and Lands will be focusing on forest pests and firewood. Quarantines will be highlighted by Piera Siegert of the New Hampshire Department of Agriculture. The program is free. Advance registration requested. To register call Mary West at (603) 796-2151.
