LACONIA — Detective Chris Noyes, who leads the Police Department’s effort against drug trafficking, told the City Council last night that as the volume of prescription drugs on the street has dwindled, heroin has taken their place as the drug of choice among those addicted to opiates, who he estimated number between 300 and 500, or as many as three-percent of the population.

LACONIA — As construction goes on in the front parking lot of the large commercial building that marks the corner of Fair and Court Streets, city fire officials are combing through the charred remains of the structure to find the cause of a three-alarm fire that gutted most of it early Sunday morning. The fire burned out all but one of the seven businesses that operated from the building, constructed in the early 1970s, that many still refer to as Aubuchon’s, even though the hardware store company left the city some years ago. “At this time we have no reason to
think it’s suspicious,” said Fire Chief Ken Erickson yesterday afternoon. He said his team along with a representative of the N.H. Fire Marshals Office will return to the building today for additional inspection. Laconia firefighters were alerted to the blaze at 2:30 a.m. Sunday when an alarm sounded from the space at 161 Court Street that had been occupied by Skate Escape until August 1. He said the first responders saw smoke pouring from the eaves and see FIRE page 10

U.S. moving closer to high-level talks with Iran NEW YORK (AP) — The Obama administration edged close to direct, high-level talks with Iran’s new government on Monday, with Secretary of State John Kerry slated to meet his Iranian counterpart this week and the White House weighing the risks and rewards of an encounter between President Barack Obama and Iran’s president, Hasan Rouhani. An Obama-Rouhani exchange on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly would mark the first meeting at that high level for the two nations in more than 30 years. Such talks could signal a turning point in U.S.-Iranian relations — but also could be seen as a premature endorsement for a new Iranian government that has yet to answer key questions about the future of its disputed nuclear program. Obama advisers said no meeting was scheduled. But they added that the U.S. planned to take advantage of diplomatic opportunities while in New York and indicated they were not leaving a possible encounter between Obama and Rouhani to chance. “I don’t think that anything would happen by happenstance on a relationship and an issue that is this important,” Ben Rhodes, Obama’s deputy national security adviser, told reporters traveling with the president to New York. The election of Rouhani, a moderate cleric, has led to speculation about possible progress on Iran’s nuclear impasse with the U.S. Particularly intriguing to American officials are Rouhani’s assertions that his government has “complete authority” in nuclear negotiations. That would be a marked change from previous governments and their relationship with Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The U.S. and its allies have long suspected that Iran is trying to produce a nuclear weapon, though Tehran insists its nuclear activities are only for producing energy and for medical research. American officials say Rouhani’s change in tone is driven by the Iranian public’s frustration with crippling economic sanctions levied by the U.S. But it is still unclear whether Iran is willing to take the steps the U.S. is seeking in order to ease the sanctions, including curbing uranium enrichment and shutting down the underground Fordo nuclear facility. see TALKS page 5 Meredith Cinema Meredith Shopping Ctr. • 279-7836 www.barnzs.com Tuesday (9/24) - Thursday (9/26)

Kenyan forces making ‘last push’ to free final hostages from Nairobi mall NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — Kenyan security forces battled al-Qaida-linked terrorists in an upscale mall for a third day Monday in what they said was a final push to rescue the last few hostages in a siege that has left at least 62 people dead. While the government announced Sunday that “most” hostages had been released, a security expert with contacts inside the mall said at least 10 were still being held by a band of attackers described as “a multinational collection from all over the world.” The expert, who insisted on anonymity to talk freely about the situation, said many hostages had been freed or escaped in the previous 24-36 hours, including some who were in hiding. However, there were at least 30 hostages when the assault by al-Shabab militants began Saturday,
he said, and “it’s clear” that Kenyan security officials “haven’t cleared the building fully.” Flames and dark plumes of smoke rose Monday above the Westgate shopping complex for more than an hour after four large explosions rocked the surrounding neighborhood. The smoke was pouring through a large skylight inside the mall’s main department and grocery store, where mattresses and other flammable goods appeared to have been set on fire, a person with knowledge of the rescue operation. The explosions were followed by volleys of gunfire as police helicopters and a military jet circled overhead, giving the neighborhood the feel of a war zone. By evening, Kenyan security officials claimed the upper hand. see KENYA page 4
DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — President Bashar Assad pledged in an interview broadcast Monday to honor an agreement to surrender Syria’s stockpile of chemical weapons, but he said that rebels might try to block international arms inspectors from doing their work. As battles continued across Syria, new Associated Press video of an attack Sunday night showed the regime’s helicopters dropping barrel bombs on opposition-held areas, creating chaotic scenes of destruction. In a sign of worsening infighting among the rebels, a top al-Qaida commander in Syria was killed in an ambush by rival, Western-backed group — an assassination sure to raise tensions among factions seeking to topple the regime. Assad’s comments came as world leaders gathered in New York for the annual U.N. General Assembly, where the use of chemical weapons in Syria’s civil war was high on the agenda. see SYRIA page 8
BOSTON (AP) — Less than a year after losing his seat, former U.S. Rep Frank Guinta is launching another bid for Congress. The Republican posted a video on his campaign website Monday in which he formally declared his intention to run again in 2014 in the eastern New Hampshire district that stretches from the coast to Manchester and up into the White Mountains. Striking a distinctly bipartisan tone, Guinta said he’s running because he wants to bring people together to solve problems. He said that politicians in both parties in Washington seem “more interested in fighting than making tough decisions.” “It’s so disappointing. But you know what? We can find common ground without sacrificing our principles. It just requires working together for the same goal,” he said, adding that he worked with Republicans and Democrats as mayor of Manchester. The video also features Guinta’s wife, who calls him a “super dad” and a great listener. Guinta served one term in Washington before being defeated by Democratic Rep. Carol Shea-Porter in 2012. see GUINTA page 3

2 charged for Chicago park shooting spree that wounded 13 but neither fired a gun CHICAGO (AP) — Two men have been charged in connection with a shooting last week at a Chicago park that injured 13 people, including a 3-year-old boy, Chicago officials announced Monday night. Authorities say Bryon Champ, 21, and Kewane Gatewood, 20, were charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery with a firearm in the shooting Thursday at Cornell Square Park on Chicago’s southwest side. The suspects’ home towns were not revealed. Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said that while the two played significant roles in the shooting, neither is believed to have pulled the trigger. “Chicago Police detectives continue to work tirelessly to solve this case and hold the criminals who committed this senseless act of violence last Thursday night responsible for their actions,” McCarthy said in a statement. “These charges are just the beginning, and this investigation remains ongoing at this time.”
Champ has previous weapons charges. He was convicted in July 2012 on charges of unlawful use of a weapon by a felon and sentenced to Cook County Jail’s boot camp. Champ is a documented gang member, according to authorities. “To truly address violence for the long-term we need state and federal laws that keep illegal guns out of our communities and provide real punishment for the criminals who use them,” McCarthy said. He added that a three-year mandatory minimum sentence for illegal gun possession and truth in sentencing for gun crimes in Illinois is needed. Authorities say as many as three people opened fire Thursday on a basketball court in the Back of the Yards neighborhood. Among those injured were 3-year-old Deonta Howard, who is recovering from surgery after being shot near an ear, along with two teenagers. The shooting returned Chicago’s gun violence problem to the nation’s consciousness. The assailants fired more than a dozen rounds
from preceding page Despite the recent loss, Guinta is considered a top recruit for the GOP. He’s running in a district that’s generally more favorable for Republicans, and polling suggests that Shea-Porter is vulnerable. After a painful 2012 election cycle, Republicans don’t hold a single U.S. House seat in New England. U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan recently announced plans to visit New Hampshire next month to campaign for Guinta. The pair served on the House Budget Committee together.
Democrats wasted no time in attacking Guinta. The House Democrats’ campaign arm in Washington linked him to Ryan’s budget plans to transform Medicare into a voucher-like system. A spokesman for the New Hampshire Democratic party, meanwhile, declared that “Guinta’s notoriety as a rubber stamp for the far right wing and national Republicans cost him his seat last fall.” The spokesman, Harrell Kirstein, added: “He shouldn’t be surprised when New Hampshire voters reject him again for the very same reasons next year.”

HAMPTON (AP) — Police say the woman who hit and killed two cyclists did not have a license and had been stopped hours earlier for speeding. Hampton Deputy Police Chief Richard Sawyer tells the Portsmouth Herald (http://bit.ly/1fc1LnU) that 20-year-old Darriean Hess, of Seabrook, was stopped at 12:46 a.m. Saturday for speeding in the same area where the crash happened eight hours later. He says she didn’t have a license. She was ticketed and ordered her to wait for a friend to drive her car away. Police say Hess was driving again around 8:30 a.m. Saturday when her vehicle crossed the centerline and hit four cyclists participating in a 100-mile ride. Two riders died. The investigation continues. Sawyer says Hess took a blood test that will check for alcohol or other substances.

Cigarettes & a bicycle stolen after separate Laconia business break-ins LACONIA — Police are investigating two burglaries from early yesterday morning that occurred in different parts of the city. Police said a burglar alarm sounded at 1:28 a.m. at the Sunoco gas station at 1355 Union Avenue. When police arrived they found someone had thrown an unidentified object through the window of the entry door. Police said cigarettes were among the items identified as stolen. At 5:05 a.m., police responded to MC Cycle on Canal Street where they found that someone had used an
unidentified object to force entry into the building. Witnesses told police that they saw an unidentified man pedal away on a stolen bicycle and that he headed toward City Hall on Beacon Street. The bicycle was recovered a short time later in that general area. Police said yesterday they have identified at least “one person of interest” and asked if anyone has any information about either burglary to call the Laconia Police Department at 524-5252 or the Greater Laconia Crime Line at 524-1717.
KENYA from page 2 “Taken control of all the floors. We’re not here to feed the attackers with pastries but to finish and punish them,” Police Inspector General David Kimaiyo said on Twitter. Kenya’s Interior Minister Joseph Ole Lenku said the evacuation of hostages had gone “very, very well” and that Kenyan officials were “very certain” that few if any hostages were left in the building. But with the mall cordoned off and under heavy security it was not possible to independently verify the assertions. Similar claims of a quick resolution were made by Kenyan officials on Sunday and the siege continued. Authorities have also not provided any details on how many hostages were freed or how many still remain captive. Three attackers were killed in the fighting Monday, Kenyan authorities said, and more than 10 suspects arrested. Eleven Kenyan soldiers were wounded in the running gun battles. Somalia’s al-Qaida-linked rebel group, al-Shabab, which claimed responsibility for the attack, said the hostage-takers were well-armed and ready to take on the Kenyan forces. An al-Shabab spokesman, Sheik Ali Mohamud Rage, said in an audio file posted on a militant website that the attackers had been ordered to “take punitive action against the hostages” if force was used to try to rescue them. The attackers have lots of ammunition, the militant group said in a Twitter feed, adding that Kenya’s government would be responsible for any loss of hostages’ lives. A Western security official in Nairobi who insisted on not being named to share information about the rescue operation said the only reason the siege hadn’t yet ended would be because hostages were still inside. Westgate mall, a vast complex with multiple banks that have secure vaults and bulletproof glass partitions, as well
as a casino, is difficult to take, the official said. “They are not made for storming,” he said of the labyrinth of shops, restaurants and offices. “They’re made to be unstormable.” At least 62 people were killed in the assault Saturday by some 12 to 15 alShabab militants wielding grenades and firing on civilians inside the mall, which includes shops for such retail giants as Nike, Adidas and Bose and is popular with foreigners and wealthy Kenyans. The militants specifically targeted non-Muslims, and at least 18 foreigners were among the dead, including six Britons, as well as citizens from France, Canada, the Netherlands, Australia, Peru, India, Ghana, South Africa and China. More than 100 people were wounded, including five Americans. Fighters from an array of nations participated in the assault, according to Kenya Chief of Defense forces Gen. Julius Karangi. “We have an idea who these people are and they are clearly a multinational collection from all over the world,” he said. In the United States, the FBI was looking into whether Americans were involved in the attack, said FBI spokesman Paul Bresson. Al-Shabab, whose name means “The Youth” in Arabic, said the mall attack was in retribution for Kenyan forces’ 2011 push into neighboring Somalia. An extremist Islamic terrorist force that grew out of the anarchy that crippled Somalia after warlords ousted a longtime dictator in 1991, it is estimated to have several thousand fighters, including a few hundred foreign fighters, among them militants from the Middle East with experience in the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts. Others are young, raw recruits from Somali communities in the United States and Europe. Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud said the attack showed that al-Shabab was a threat not just to Somalia but to the international community.

Modest population growth trend thought troubling sign for Lakes Region economy By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — The population growth that has driven growth and prosperity throughout much of the Lakes Region since 1970 slowed markedly during the last decade and shows scant sign of accelerating soon. Demographic data compiled and presented by the Lakes Region Planning Commission in the course of updating its Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy for the region offers a pattern of slackening in-migration and rapid aging that threaten to slow population growth in the years ahead. Unless mitigated, these trends will weigh on the development of the work force needed for a dynamic economy. As defined by the commission, the Lakes Region includes the 11 municipalities of Belknap County, eight towns in Carroll County (Effingham, Freedom, Moultonborough, Ossipee, Sandwich, Tamworth, Tuftonboro and Wolfeboro), six towns in Grafton County (Alexandria, Ashland, Bridgewater, Bristol, Hebron and Holderness) and five municipalities in Merrimack County (Andover, Danbury, Franklin, Hill and Northfield). In the 70 years between 1900 and 1970 the population of the 30 municipalities in the Lakes Region grew by just 16,092 — slightly more than the current population of Laconia — from 44,369 to 60,461. By contrast, in the 40 years since 1970 the population has risen by 52,272, an increase of 87-percent, from 60,461 to 112, 735. However, 88-percent of this population growth — 45,967 people — occurred between 1970 and 2000, when in successive decades the population increased by 29 percent, 18 percent and 16 percent. From 2000 to 2010, the population added only 6,307 people to grow at a pace of 6 percent. Nearly half this increase occurred in just four towns — Alton, Barn-
stead, Belmont and Gilmanton — which together added 2,812 residents, 45 percent of the increase in the entire region. These towns are within reach of centers of employment: Alton and Barnstead fall within the orbit of Rochester. Dover and Somerswoth and Belmont and Gilmanton of Concord. In a third of the 30 municipalities the pace of growth was less than 6 percent, lagging the average for the entire region. The two cities in the region — Laconia and Franklin — represented 26-percent of the regional population in 1990, but from 2000 to 2010 the first shrank and the second stagnated and their share of the regional population fell to 22-percent. In an aging state, the Lakes Region is aging relatively rapidly. In New Hampshire the median age rose from 37.1 years in 2000 to 41.1 years in 2010, an increase of 11-percent. Only three of the 30 municipalities in the Lakes Region — Barnstead, Franklin and Northfield — posted median ages below the state average while the percentage increase in the median age reached double digits in 19 of the 30 municipalities in the region. The median age in all four counties in the Lakes Region topped the state median age, led by Carroll County at 48.3 years and followed by Belknap County at 44.7 years, Grafton County at 41.2 years and Merrimack County at 41.4 years. The aging of the population is highlighted by the increase in those over 65. Between 2000 and 2010, the number of senior citizens rose by 20 percent, from 147,970 to 178,268, and from 12 percent to 13 percent of the total population. In the Lakes Region the numbers climbed 17 percent, from 16,838 to 19,740, to 17 percent of the regional population. With the exception of Laconia, Franklin, Moultonborough and Sandwich the percentage increase in the number of senior citizens reached double digits in all the municipalities in the Lakes Region. With the last members of the “Baby Boom” gen-
eration, which consists of those born between 1946 and 1964, turning 65 in 2029, the aging process will be magnified and prolonged without an increase in either the rate of birth or pace of in-migration. Meanwhile, after peaking at more than 61,000 in 2008 the labor force in the Lakes Region fell to about 59,000 in 2011, below where it stood in 2002. Likewise, the number of those employed peaked at 59,000 in 2008 before dropping to less than 56,000 in 2011, more than 1,000 fewer than were working in 2002. The employment figures reflect the impact of the recession. Between 2005 and 2010, private employment fell by 3,196 jobs, 2,005 of them in the manufacturing sector where employment shrank by 32-percent., from 6,199 to 4,194 jobs. Altogether total employment in the region decreased by 7 percent between 2005 and 2010.

Obamacare will soon be part of American life Voices from right field are explaining why they’re justified in threatening the United States with default if Congress does not defund Obamacare. The Wall Street Journal’s Kimberley Strassel said on Sunday chat TV, “There isn’t one poll that shows that Americans approve, as a majority, of this health care law.” That’s an interesting concept: repeal by poll. Can’t find it in the civics books. And seeing as the polls also show huge chunks of the public unaware of what’s in the Affordable Care Act — or even of its existence — of what use are those numbers? Further note that a significant slice of the unhappy ones complain that the reforms don’t go far enough. Of course, Obamacare could be repealed the old-fashioned civics-book way. That’s not going to happen as long as there’s a Democratic majority in the Senate. But Republicans could ride the imagined discontent to victory, via an election, and then get rid of the law. Perhaps the objective of the game is the game. For pure excitement, it’s hard to beat threats of a government shutdown — and the attendant trauma to business, markets and the delicate economic recovery. The game is not good for the American people, and as wiser Republicans say, it’s not good for the Republican Party. Even a government shutdown, however, would not stop Obamacare, according to the Congressional Research Service. The lapse in appropriations would hit only “discretionary” funding. Most of Obamacare is on the “mandatory” spending side of the budget. And the White House could move some mandatory spending around to fill discretionary cuts. All this civics talk is giving the American people a headache. So let’s look at the polls for Romneycare, the Massachusetts health care law and model for Obamacare. What do the Bay State polls say? When it went into effect seven years ago, polls showed a skeptical, if not hostile, view of Romneycare. Now you couldn’t pull the health plan out of the people’s cold dead hands. The latest Massachusetts Medical Society poll has 84 percent
of state residents happy with their health coverage, versus national polls showing only 67 percent of Americans so content. Like Obamacare, the Massachusetts plan caused some confusion at first. Kinks needed to be ironed out and were. Forgive this brief foray into policy. Warnings that Romneycare would lead Massachusetts businesses to drop their workers’ coverage did not come to pass. On the contrary, employers offering insurance rose to 76 percent, from 70 percent before the reforms. Obamacare is more fiscally conservative than was the original Romneycare. It does more to control costs. For example, Obamacare proposes bundling payments for a medical condition. That basically means one check is written to cover soupto-nuts treatment for an ailment, such as a broken foot. That removes incentives to order more X-rays, office visits or other care not needed. And it rewards providers who do a good job the first time around. Massachusetts offers subsidies to those earning less than 300 percent of the federal poverty level. The federal government is less generous, starting subsidies at 400 percent of the poverty marker. The fiscally conservative Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation praises Romneycare. The program’s sharpest critics, the group says, are from out of state or single-payer advocates on the left. Obamacare, like Romneycare, will soon earn the people’s love. But between now and its full implementation, Americans will be dragged into the basement for another round of threats to their well-being. There’s no stopping the tea party folks from trying, but Obamacare will soon be part of the people’s lives. The big neon sign will flash “Game Over,” and the right-wingers will move on to their next adventure.

She has written for such diverse publications as The New York Times, Harper’s Bazaar and Institutional Investor.)
Obamacare extending its benefits to countless N.H. residents To The Daily Sun, Don Ewing’s scare tactics about Obamacare are simply that: scare tactics. The facts tell a different story. Already in N.H., thanks to Obamacare, seniors have saved over $20 million on prescription drugs. Thanks to Obamacare, 545,000 N.H. residents are no longer subject to lifetime limits on health care expenditures; truly a blessing when a medical catastrophe occurs. Thanks to Obamacare, hundreds of N.H. residents, who were previously denied health insurance due to a pre-
vious health condition, are now eligible for coverage which will keep that condition under control. Thanks to Obamacare, 365,000 N.H. residents have accessed preventative care, with no co-pays, which leads to earlier detection of illness and healthier outcomes. Cumberland Farms here in N.H. has converted part-time employees to full-time because, thanks to Obamacare, an enhanced benefit package became affordable which improved “the company’s ability to recruit the see next page
LETTERS Because we took grant, Alton now committed to zoning change To The Daily Sun, I recently attended a meeting held in Alton about Workforce Housing (WFH). This meeting was hosted by the Alton Business Association (ABA) as a forum for the citizens of Alton to ask questions about WFH; there were about 70 people in attendance. We were told the, “Federal Government had nothing to do with Workforce Housing and it only had to do with the State of N.H.” and then, “the Federal Agency, HUD was involved” and that, “the Town of Alton was awarded a $30,000 grant and then hired a consulting firm, which by the way, is the same firm who was paid $500 by the town to help write the grant” and that, “The town had to add $7,500 to the grant funds as a requirement of the grant”. The firm is actually getting $37,500 for determining if Alton meets the WFH requirements under a new N.H. RSA 674: 58-61. Not only are the taxpayers paying the firm, we are paying for all the time spent by our town planner, building inspector, town assessor and their departments, who are all assisting this firm. We then learned that, “Alton already meets the criteria for the standards of workforce housing”. But, because of the accepted grant, the town is now committed to changing our zoning, regardless of the
need to do so. A perfect example of the tentacles of the federal government in all of this and no one can say where the mandates will end. In addition to the mind boggling information we learned, several good questions were answered with an “I don’t know” response. It didn’t take long for people to intelligently decide workforce housing mandates should NOT be entertained as a beneficial aspect of rural living in Alton. Interestingly, the ONLY person who showed any anger or hostility during the meeting was Tom Hoops, vice chair of the Alton Planning Board. In the two hours of question and answers, Tom Hoops was THE ONLY ONE who was disrespectful. Tom stood, speaking as, “a Planning Board Member” and began yelling and berating people who disagreed with his views. It’s a sad day when citizens cannot speak freely before their elected officials without experiencing backlash. The ABA will host another forum for Alton Citizens on Wednesday, September 25, 6 p.m., at the Gilman Museum. This federally-mandated program which, the state has adopted, and the Alton Selectboardhas embraced, is an issue that will affect everyone. Barbara Howard Alton
Some want to eliminate government no matter who it affects To The Daily Sun, Last week, while watching the continuing drama of possible government shutdown, defunding Obamacare ... another item caught my attention. The House of Representatives voted to eliminate 39 billion dollars of food stamp expenditures. One congresswoman stated that her reason to support this was to eliminate fraud... there are a lot of dead people getting food stamps. (they probably don’t eat all that much). Seriously, there could possibly be less drastic ways to curb this abuse. There were also two interviews with combat veterans. One spoke of her family needing food stamp assistance when she was growing up. The other said that he felt bad about having to accept food stamps, but it was that or go hungry. Now there has been a lot of discus-
sion in this paper about heroism and war veterans. I do have some firsthand knowledge of this subject. My dad served in World War II. He fought in campaigns in North Africa, Italy, D-Day and the Battle of the Bulge. He was at the liberation of Paris and the opening of Buchenwald. He did all of this before his 22nd birthday. Some of our politicians want to cut expenditure and balance the budget. I think most of us do. There are, however, some who will stand with the flag in one hand and the Constitution in the other and refuse to compromise. They want to eliminate government, regardless as to who it affects. These people are anarchists. I’m incredibly proud of my dad’s contributions. He’d be appalled at this behavior. June M. Huot Laconia

LETTERS When FDR brought electricity to most of South some cried ‘socialism’
Vast majority of Americans oppose Obamacare, despite the speeches
To The Daily Sun, It has taken 237 years for the United States to build its society, which includes both physical infrastructure and laws that protect our freedoms. All of us, no matter how independent or wealthy must rely on our society to earn a living. So why do some citizens want to destroy what we have built?” The rallying cry of these partisans is “We demand a smaller government ...we’re becoming a socialist nation!” When the nation was created in 1776, the population of the country was three million and New York City had only 30,000 people. Today, we have 55 million miles of paved roads, over 5,000 airports and over 2,000 public power systems that serve our economy and our population of 317 million people. Most people are unaware that before the Tennessee Valley Authority was created by President Roosevelt in 1933, only 10 percent of the people in the rural South had any electricity. The American Liberty League, or the “Tea Party” of its day was against the law, saying that electricity was never mentioned in the Constitution and the government was becoming “Socialist” by generating cheap electricity to the rural areas of Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina and Virginia. Roosevelt also passed a law that child labor be abolished. Up to that point, little children, some as young as five, worked in dangerous mills and factories. Roosevelt’s plan was ruled unconstitutional by the Republicancontrolled Supreme Court, which said that the federal government had
no jurisdiction in this matter, as it would deprive the worker (the child) of entering into a contract to provide his labor. Thankfully, over the years, child labor was recognized as deplorable and today children are protected throughout the U.S. Governor Mitt Romney was fond of saying that the government is incompetent and is incapable of building anything. More correctly, nearly every industry, from railroads to communication satellites, and from public health to the Internet has relied on the government for its creation and support. To encourage the growth of air travel and make it affordable, federal law has subsidized airlines, airports and passenger fares since the inception of the airplane. It is estimated that a flight from a small airport like Manchester would cost us 50 percent more, or be downright eliminated, without the subsidy. Since oil was discovered in Oil Creek Pennsylvania in 1859, the government has encouraged oil production with subsidies and loans. Recently, when it was found that batteries for electric cars were being produced only in China, the government funded over 30 domestic businesses to develop American batteries. Today, we have the most advanced electric car batteries in the world. I challenge anyone to cite an industry that does not benefit directly or indirectly from government. It’s a simple fact, that if we cut government, we also cut business activity and our standard of living. Nick Vazzana Sandwich
To The Daily Sun, Last Friday, two Democrats joined Republicans in the House of Representatives in passing (230 to 189) a Continuing Resolution (CR) that stops this Washington politician caused national disaster created by Obamacare (a/k/a the inappropriately named Affordable Care Act). Obamacare’s passage in 2010 showed how little Washington Democrats care about the American people or about really improving health care for Americans. Obamacare was written in secret and passed by Democrat senators and congressmen who didn’t even read the bill! Democrats passed Obamacare without a single Republican vote and against the clear wishes of a vast majority of the American people who still oppose Obamacare despite hundreds of speeches and billions of dollars spent promoting it. Obamacare has had a disastrous effect on jobs causing reduced incomes or lost jobs for millions of Americans. Important Obamacare promises were broken: health insurance premiums are increasing, people are losing their doctors and insurance coverage, and health related costs are up, not down. Things were far better before Obamacare. Former Obamacare supporters (businesses, labor unions, government workers including Congress and its staff, etc.,) are now requesting, and President Obama often grants, exemptions from Obamacare. The rest of us are just left to suffer. Our future with Obamacare prom-
from preceding page best talent,” according to the Manchester Union Leader. The administration has delayed some provisions of Obamacare to ensure the business community and insurance providers have a comfort level with the new system that will make its implementation seamless. These delays are not an acknowledgement of defeat. Defunding Obamacare will take
away all these gains in making health care affordable and accessible to the vast majority of N.H. residents and will most certainly send health insurance premiums through the roof. I do not know where Don Ewing gets his information but it is certainly contradicted by the facts on the ground as Obamacare extends its benefits to countless N.H. citizens.

TOWN OF NEW HAMPTON PUBLIC HEARING
Thursday, October 10, 2013 6 Pinnacle Hill Road, New Hampton, NH 7:30 p.m. Town Office Meeting Room
The Board of Selectmen will hold a Public Hearing on October 10, 2013 at 7:30 pm, in accordance with RSA 31:95-b III(a) to take an action on the authorization to accept and expend monies given to the Town by the New Hampton School in the amount of $8,000.00 for the engineering and permitting necessary for future resurfacing projects on sidewalks along Main Street.

ises to be even worse as 150 new government bureaucracies will control (interfere with) everything related to the health care industry. Bureaucrats can even punish doctors and hospitals for providing treatments that Obamcare formulas say are not “cost justified”, no matter what the doctor believes is best for the patient. Obamacare’s disastrous impacts (on jobs, on people who lose insurance, on health care quality and availability, and on our nation’s growing national debt) make Obamacare not worth the harm it is doing, especially to the 85 percent of Americans who already had health insurance. The House passed Continuing Resolution (CR) fully funds all government programs except Obamacare. There will only be a government shut-down if the Democrat-controlled Senate or President Obama are willing to shut down the government to try to force Obamacare on the American people against their wishes, and despite all its disastrous effects. It is time to end this failed experiment in government controlled health care. Tell Senator Ayotte (202-2243324), Senator Shaheen (202-2242841), and other senators to pass the Continuing Resolution (CR) which stops Obamacare and funds the rest of the government. Tell President Obama (202-456-1414) to end this failed experiment in government controlled health care. Don Ewing Meredith
Scare tactics turn people against those needy who get food stamps To The Daily Sun, Is there a direct relation between the number of people on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and the high comporate profits a last few years? I say YES because companies are trimming the work force, lowering pay, increasing automation and therefore increasing profits. As more people are working at minimum wages, with little if any benefits, profits have increased. This has been the overall plan to eliminate the middle class and to widen
the gap between the haves and havenots. Scare tactics turn people against those needy who receive food stamps or any type of welfare or “handout” These people are called lazy layabouts who refuse to work. I don’t think so because there are no many jobs to be had. I qualified for the SNAP program and got the card and used it twice. But in my position, I felt I didn’t need it so it expired and was thrown away. But some people do need it due to circumstances beyond their control and we see XXX page

Legally mandated investigation of Nov. 2012 voters who showed no ID continues
Laconia checklist supervisors dismiss Kingsbury’s contention that addresses for 60 same-day registrants were suspicious By Mike Mortensen LACONIA – Ten months after voters went to the polls in last November’s election the state Attorney General’s Office is continuing to investigate whether any of the 705,874 ballots cast were done so fraudulently. Assistant Attorney General Steve LaBonte said last week that scrutinizing the status of almost 1,700 voters whose residency is in question is “an open investigation.” LaBonte declined to provide any details about the investigation other than to say that he and his staff have been working on the case since June. There said 12 to 15 people have been working on the case, either full- or part-time. He would not say how many of the questionable voters had been contacted or how much longer the investigation would take. Under state law, the Secretary of State’s Office is required to turn over to the AG’s Office the names and addresses of voters who fail to respond to a mailing to confirm the address they gave when they regis-
tered at the polls. Any voter who registered to vote on Election Day but was unable to provide a photo ID and who was not recognized by certain poll workers was required to sign an affidavit swearing their identity. Sixty days after the election the Secretary of State’s office is required to send a letter to those voters at the address they gave on the affidavit telling them to return the enclosed post card to the Secretary of State’s office. The names of voters who do not return their cards within 90 days or whose letters are returned by the Post Office as undeliverable are turned over to the AG’s Office for investigation. Deputy Secretary of State Dave Scanlan said that his office sent out 5,609 letters to voters who signed the so-called Challenged Voter Affidavits last November. Of those, 3,911 voters returned their cards by the deadline, while 374 letters were returned as undeliverable and another 1,324 letters were presumably delivered, but the voters failed to mail the postcard back to the Secretary of State’s Office, Scanlan said. The names and
SYRIA from page 2 The Syrian leader told Chinese state TV that Damascus is dedicated to implementing the agreement reached between Russia and the U.S. to surrender its chemical weapons to international control. Syria’s stockpile, he said, is “in safe areas and locations and under the full control of the Syrian Arab Army.” Assad cautioned, however, that the rebels might block inspectors from reaching some of the locations, in order to frame the government. “I’m referring to places where gunmen exist. Those gunmen might want to stop the experts’ arrival,” Assad told CCTV in the interview, which was shot Sunday in Damascus and broadcast Monday. Under the agreement brokered Sept. 14 in Geneva, inspectors are to be in Syria by November and all components of the chemical weapons program are to be removed from the country or destroyed by the middle of next year. The revelations of Syria’s chemical weapons arsenal became public after an Aug. 21 attack near Damascus that a U.N. report found included the use of the nerve agent sarin. Hundreds of people died in the attack that brought Washington to the brink of military intervention before the accord was struck between the U.S. and Russia. The U.N. inspectors face enormous challenges, including maneuvering
between rebel- and government-controlled territory. Last month, snipers opened fire on a U.N. convoy carrying a team on its way to investigate the Aug. 21 incident. Opposition fighters have insisted they will also cooperate with any inspectors or experts who come to Syria. Ralf Trapp, a former chemical arms inspector who is now a disarmament consultant, said Assad was legally obligated to let in inspectors under the chemical weapons treaty. But, he cautioned, “they can use the security situation as an excuse. They can delay things.” Damascus met a first deadline under the Geneva agreement, submitting last week what was supposedly the full list of its chemical weapons and production facilities to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons so they can be secured and destroyed. Also Monday, Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah categorically denied rebel claims that his group had received chemical weapons from Syria. The U.S.-Russian deal has dealt a blow to the rebels, who had hoped a U.S.-led military strike would turn the war in their favor. Opposition leaders have warned the regime will continue to wield conventional weapons in the civil war, which has killed more than 100,000 people since the uprising began in March 2011.
from preceding page do live in a country that used to help those in need, not just think about them. For example our own GOP Senator Kelly Ayotte just posted on Facebook about remembering the MIA’s and POWs, etc. But how will she vote on this SNAP program that helps about 20 percent of vets? Will she just remember them or will she try to help those in need too? A quick comment on Obamacare.
Since everyone is so scared of a government-run health care, I’ll add my two cents. For the last 2-1/2 years, since my body decided to fall apart, I’ve been on both Medicare and Medicaid (I’m also over 65) and both are government-run programs and I’ve had no problems with either one. I say give it a chance to work as you have everything no gain. Jon Hoyt Plymouth
FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
addresses of the 1,698 voters whose letters could not be delivered or who failed to send back the postcard were turned over to the AG’s Office, he said. Critics of New Hampshire’s sameday registration law say it opens the door to vote fraud. The late Bob Kingsbury of Laconia was one of those who shared that view. In early March Kingsbury turned over to the Laconia City Clerk’s Office the names of 60 voters whose Laconia residency he considered suspect. Kingsbury, who recently died, had sent letters to 1,365 people who had registered at Laconia polls on Election Day and 60 of those letters were returned by the Post Office as undeliverable. City Clerk Mary Reynolds said that she turned the material she got from Kingsbury over to the Supervisors of the Checklist who “found no merit” to Kingsbury’s contention that the returned letters showed probability of vote fraud. “They may have moved (since Election Day), or their mailing address was different than their physical address — like a Post Office box,”
Reynolds said regarding the 60 voters. “There are many different variables.” New Hampshire law allows a pretty wide interpretation of who’s eligible to vote. According to Reynolds, the law says an inhabitant’s domicile for voting purposes is “that one place where a person, more than any other place has established a physical presence.” “Because the law is vague in certain areas, it does create areas for problems,” said Scanlan. “In large part, you have to rely on the trustworthiness of individuals to do the right thing when you’re voting.” Scanlan said his office is eager to get the results of the AG’s investigation, but understands why it is taking so much time. “It’s a big job, but it’s a bigger job for the AG,” he said. If prosecutors determine that an affidavit was signed fraudulently, the signer could be charged with a Class A misdemeanor or a Class B felony, depending on the circumstances. The attorney general’s office also has the option of pursuing a civil case.
HEROIN from page one councilors that two years ago, following after a rash of fatal overdoses, as many as a dozen uniformed officers and support staff were assigned to a project to address the dealing and abuse of drugs in the city. He said that although there were no fatal overdoses in 2012, three have died this year and drug cases have risen 16-percent, an increase that reflected stiffer enforcement. At the same time, crimes against persons and property, most of which are associated with drugs, dropped 22-percent and 6-percent respectively. Noyes said that “there has been quite a dip” in trafficking in prescriptions opiates, particularly oxycodone, with tighter controls on their distribution. Likewise, the supply of methamphetamines has dwindled after several small labs were discovered and the cooks jailed. But, he stressed that users have substituted heroin as supplies rose and prices fell, adding that police have recovered pressed heroin pills, which are very rare in New Hampshire. “These are poly drug users,” Noyes said. “They don’t care. It’s anything they can get.” He explained that if they can’t get one drug they will substitute another. Once they are addicted, if they can’t get their drug of choice they may take what he called “a gap drug,” like buprenorphine, a semi-synthetic opiate, just to avoid to being sick. “They’re just buying time,” he said. “They’re not getting high. They’re just noting getting sick.” Noyes said that most addicts ranged in age from “19 to 20 to middle to late 30s,” with the youngest, those just leaving high school, representing “the biggest spike in using and dealing.” In response to a question from City Councilor Matt Lahey (Ward 2), Noyes
said that although most addicts “don’t like where they’re at,” they find it difficult to enter a rehab facility and even more difficult to kick their habit. He agreed that more therapeutic programs in correctional institutions, like those contemplated as part of a new Belknap County Jail, would be beneficial. “Jail is where most get rehab services,” Noyes said, while Adams interrupted to recall a current student at Lakes Region Community College told him “being arrested was the best thing that ever happened to him.” Traci Fowler of the Lakes Region Partnership for Public Health, Inc, who coordinates regional efforts to prevent drug and alcohol abuse, told the councilors that Laconia is among a handful of municipalities where a coalition of of residents — “Stand Up Laconia” — to address alcohol and drug use among young people. She emphasized that the longer adolescents go without drinking or using, the greater the likelihood they will escape addiction. Fowler said that a successful prevention program requires a broad-based community effort, engaging law enforcement, educators, health care providers and parents, pursuing “best practices,” which have been proven effective. NOTE: The City Council was without a quorum last night and could not transact business. Mayor Mike Seymour, along with Councilors Henry Lipman (Ward 3) and Brenda Baer (Ward 4) were absent last night. Councilor Bob Hamel (Ward 5), the mayor pro-tem, presided. The only item on the agenda requiring action was the acceptance of a grant on behalf of the Laconia Airport Authority to fund erection of wildlife perimeter fence, which will be taken up at the first meeting next month. — Michael Kitch

Laconia High alumni gearing up for another big homecoming/reunion weekend By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — There will be lots of new things for Laconia High School alumni to explore at the third annual all-school reunion later this week. Among the highlights will be the the recently completed additions and renovations at the high school and the Huot Regional Technical Education Center, a $16.8 million project which has added a new 32,000-square-foot building at the school which houses a student-run restaurant, new chemistry labs and the new artificial turf athletic field at the Bank of New Hampshire Stadium. One of the highlights of the weekend will be the dedication of the football field to former football coach and athletic director Jim Fitzgerald, who coached the Sachems from 1973 to 2001, a period in which they were playoffs 19 times and advanced to 12 state finals and won three state titles. The dedication will take place at 6:45 p.m. Friday night, just prior to the 7 p.m. game against Hanover High School. Members of the 2013 Reunion Committee, Bill Greeley, class of 1971, and Janet Brough, office manager for the School District, and the Laconia Alumni Association, Randy Brough, class of 1975, were guests Saturday morning on Niel Young’s Advocates show on WEZS radio and talked about the upcoming weekend.

Smoke Signals Nicotine is highly addictive and a very difficult dependency to break. Unfortunately, it has become clear that smoking is hazardous to your health. Do you understand the benefits of quitting? Within one hour of smoking your last cigarette, your body begins to improve. Blood pressure slowly returns to normal, you have a 50% reduction in risk for heart attack, lung cancer and stroke, and your circulation improves. As more time goes by, (statistically) you will incur less medical costs; be less at risk for postsurgical complications; be less absent from work; and, have less chance of developing gum disease. Looking forward to a smoke-free life without halitosis (bad breath) might be a goal that you’re ready to set for yourself. If you have tried to quit before and it didn’t work out, don’t be ashamed to try again. Maybe a different approach would be more successful such as nicotine replacement (gum, lozenges, patches). Here are a few good resources available to you: 1) HYPERLINK “http://www.smokefree.gov” is geared toward folks who want to stop smoking, 2) 877-44UQUIT is a national helpline number with real people you can speak to, and 3) the website HYPERLINK “http://www.becomeanex.org” is a free 3-step organized plan to assist you along the way to a life without cigarettes. Will it be one of the hardest things you ever do? Yes. Can you do it? YES! When you do quit, ask your dentist about the many good options for whitening your teeth. Good luck!

FIRE from page one immediately called for a second alarm. A third alarm was called about an hour later. At the height of the blaze, Erickson said they had four ladder trucks — one each from Laconia, Meredith, Concord, and Franklin — pouring water from above onto the fire and 50 firefighters pouring water into the fire from the Court Street side of the building. All totaled, he said firefighters from nine departments plus Stewart’s Ambulance spent 13 hours fighting the fire. He said at one point Sunday morning all but one or two of his trucks had left the area but needed to return to extinguish some fire that continued burning in the eaves. “Most of the building has no windows,” said Erickson, explaining one of the things that hampered firefighters’ efforts. The building is about 27,000-square-feet and Erickson said it is broken into various condominium units. He said some of them have spaces between them, however the entire structure was capped with from preceding page underway at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday with the dedication of the Richard A. Dearborn Science Center at the high school. The lab is named for 1954 Laconia High School graduate Richard Dearborn, the founder of Eptam Plastics, which is now located in Northfield. There will be an open house from 6-7:30 p.m. at the high school following the dedication ceremony. On Friday, September 27 alumni who will be participating in the homecoming parade, will gather on the lawn at Laconia High School at 3:45 p.m., where cars from the decade in which they graduated, including a 1930 Duesenberg, will be available for them to ride in during the parade, which gets underway at 4 p.m., will go into downtown Laconia before returning to the high school. At 5 p.m. a Meet and Greet reception will be held at the Meredith Village Savings Bank Culinary Arts Center at the Huot Center. The ongoing alumni reunion will be held from 6-10 p.m. at the high school, with tours of the school to view all the recent renovations. Decade tables will be set up in the culinary arts center where videos and memorabilia will be available and alumni can share memories. Greeley recalled that he and his wife, Bonnie (Pike) Greeley, a 1973 LHS grad, met at a high school football game and that they have always held good memories of their students days at LHS and hope to share their experiences since graduation at
a rubber-membrane roof. He said the rubber roof prevented any of the water from getting into the building and the water being sprayed from hoses into the front of the building, where there was glass, wasn’t reaching the fire. He said knowing it was unoccupied, it was not safe to allow any firefighters into the building. He said there were at least six to eight separate layers to the roof in some places including a layer of asphalt, some insulation, wood layers, and some more insulation — all covered by the rubber membrane. He said gasses from the heat and the flames kept spreading internally and were fed by the asphalt but until the rubber part of the roof began to collapse, it was difficult to get water to the interior part of the building where the fire burned at its hottest. He said his crews knocked down the exterior wall closest to the Meredith Bridge Cemetery on Sunday because it was unstable and he feared it would fall. Crews were able to save the LRGHealthcare launsee FIRE page 12 the 40th reunion of Bonnie’s class, which takes place over the weekend. Randy Brough, who is Laconia Public Library director, said that proceeds realized from the LHS Alumni Reunion will go to the Lakes Region Scholarship Foundation through the LHS Alumni Scholarship Fund. He said that since 1956 the scholarship foundation has awarded 4,300 students $4.6 million in scholarships thanks to the generosity of 500 donors or donor funds. He said that the foundation will be holding its 13th Annual Community Spelling Bee at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 17 at the LHS Auditorium and that the Laconia Library team will be one of the participants. During the weekend the LHS Alumni Reunion Committee will be awarding an honorary LHS Alumni Award to former Superintendent of Schools Bob Champlin, who worked for 31 years in the Laconia school system, the last 13 as superintendent. Homecoming weekend will continue on Saturday with a number of athletic contests at the Bank of New Hampshire Stadium, field hockey at 9:30 a.m., girls soccer at noon and 1:30 p.m., boys soccer at 3:30 and 5 p.m. and volleyball contests in the LHS gym at 3 and 4:30 p.m. Janet Brough said that the idea for the reunion weekend originated with Jim Carroll, class of 1965, and has proved very popular with LHS graduates.

dry facility that processes all of the laundry for Laconia’s and Franklin’s hospitals. Erickson said there was “hundreds of thousands of dollars” of industrial laundry equipment that was spared except for some water damage. The laundry is located on the Fair Street side of the building. Erickson said the city building inspector said yesterday the the laundry portion of the building has to be inspected for electrical and physical soundness and must be professionally cleaned before operations can restart. According to LRGHealthcare Public Relations Director Sandy Marshall, the hospital will keep all of its employees working until the laundry is running again. “We’ll blend them into the rest of our staff,” she said. She said the company that maintains the equipment will be on site this morning and until then, her company won’t know the true post-fire condition of the machinery. Marshall said yesterday that the hospital has two to three days supply of clean linen in the hospitals. She also said that LRGHealthcare has had a contingency plan in place for the past few years that includes subcontracting some of the laundry work to Kleen Linen of Lebanon and sending some of it to the Belknap County Nursing Home. “The Fire Department has been wonderful,” Marshall said, noting that they allowed them to remove the LRGHealthcare trucks that were in the building and that firefighters were able to salvage a great deal of their laundry that was wrapped and ready to go back to the hospital. Gregg Selesky, the manager of Northeast Utilities Solutions and said yesterday he had two work vans and his work boat that he uses to work on island properties burned in the blaze. Fortunately, said Selesky, he had one of his work vans home with him so he can still operate on a limited basis.

He said all of his equipment and his computers were lost, although he said his customer and inventory files were housed in a carbon-fiber holder and he may be able to recover the information. Selesky said yesterday that he is a member of the Grace Capital Church and one of his fellow church members has offered him some office space so he can continue working while his insurance company processes his claim. “We’re just fortunate that no one was hurt,” Selesky said yesterday as he and a few of his employees looked in the building at their charred work trucks. Erickson said the Sunday morning’s rain was the thing that allowed them to spare the hospital’s laundry operation. He said when firefighters first arrived, it wasn’t raining and it was very windy. The rain began about an hour into the blaze. He said as portions of the roof would collapse, embers would fly into the wind that would take them toward the cemetery. He said the rain extinguished them before they could land and that embers were found as far away as Pleasant Street. “Had it not started raining or had the wind been blowing in a different direction, we would have had to concentrate on saving the buildings on Fair and Court Streets and we wouldn’t have been able to concentrate on the laundry,” he said. As it was, Erickson said the city water director told him they used 75,000 gallons of water from the city and he estimates they pumped about 200,000 gallons from the nearby Winnipesaukee River. Erickson said that part of the city has a number of older wooden buildings and had it been dry and had the wind been blowing in a different direction, it could have been catastrophic. According to Planning Director Shanna Saunders, the “old Aubuchon” building was currently home to seven separate businesses. Saunders said six business were destroyed — Little Caesars Pizza; Skate Escape— which has been closed but all of the equipment was still in the building, Inside Outlook, which used the building for its custom curtain and home improvement operation, ABC Fabricating, and a small one-person engraving shop. Inside Outlook owner Bruce Hamel said he has three employees that he will keep working as the look for another space and get the company back up and running. He said the company lost all of its fabrics as well as 12 “very sophisticated” machines used for making curtains, quilts, duvets, and other home furnishings. Erickson said Gov. Maggie Hassan has called him and offered the services of state. Saunders said the Department of Resource and Economic Development has offered to help the city assist companies that may have to layoff some of their employees. Laurie Crete and her family own the home on Fair Street that is right next to the building that burned. She said yesterday that she didn’t hear anything until the firefighters came banging on her door. “They told us to get out,” she said. “I got dressed, grabbed a bottle of water, my camera and my cat,” she said. Crete said her car was parked in the courtyard (or between the two portions of her duplex house) and her husband’s motorcycle was parked in a barn on the property. She said firefighters let him retrieve it. Crete said when she went outside, she could see the smoke and embers flying about and “lots of fire trucks.” She said they stayed with relatives for the night. “I guess we’re really lucky,” she said, adding she was able to return to her home around 7:30 a.m. Sunday. Erickson said that the construction of the Advanced Auto Parts Store that is being built up on the Court Street side of the property will continue. He said the owner’s plan was to tear down the front portion of the building — about 50-ft. X 50-ft. to better accommodate the auto parts store. “I think they just wanted a flat facade,” he said. The owner of the building, M.T, McCarthy Realty Holdings, Inc. could not be reached for comment. According to Laconia on-line assessing records the building was owned in two parts — the LRGHealthcare laundry space that is valued at $178,000 and the rest of the land and building valued at $725,200. Erickson said that when the value of the building is added to the value of the contents, the losses will exceed well over $1 million.

First win comes on the Determined LHS field hockey earns 4th win road for LHS football By Tim marTin
FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
WOLFEBORO — After dropping its first two contests, Laconia High School football team won its first game of the season, fending off a late Kingswood (1-2) drive that resulted in a missed 48-yard field goal with five seconds remaining in the game. Laconia took the lead at the end of the second quarter when quarterback Matt Swormstedt hit Kyle Chiasson down the sideline for a for a 56 yard touchdown with 53 seconds remaining in the half. The final score of the game was 21-20. “It was a good win going into Homecoming next week. These kids worked hard and stepped up on defense in the second half.” said head coach Craig Kozens. “I am proud of Cody Yale (who lead the team in tackles) and the rest of linebackers who had a great game.” Kingswood did all of their damage through the air with 253 yards passing. Of those yards, 117 came on two touchdown passes. Owen Gonya, Kingswood’s QB had three scoring passes on the night, all to tight end Thomas McCullough. Laconia’s defense held the Knights to only 45 yards on the ground. On the first drive of the evening, Gonya threw the ball away while in his own end zone, resulting in a safety to start the scoring. After the free kick, Laconia used half of the first quarter to compile an 11 play drive that was capped off with a six point scamper from Jon Pelkey. Pelkey lead the Sachems with 22 carries for 79 yards and the nine yard touchdown run. After the extra point was blocked, Kingswood only need three plays to bring the Knights within one on a 58 yard toss over the middle. Later in the second, with the Sachems driving, Chris Frontiero cut back up the middle for a score from 27 yards out. Chiasson totaled 49 yards on the evening. With the score 15-7, Gonya connected with McCullough two more times in a three and a half minute span for Kingswood’s only lead of the game. The second half was a battle for field position as Laconia would tighten up on the defensive side of the ball, yielding only 120 total yards. Kingswood had two threatening drives late in the game.

LACONIA – The Laconia girls’ varsity field hockey team is certainly a team to be reckoned with this year. As the clock started the first game of the season, the field hockey girls took Pembrook by storm, scoring three goals during the duration of the game. Pembrook was the first team to feel the sting of being shut out by Laconia, but soon proved not to be the last. Profile School and Somersworth were the next teams to fall victim to a shut out game, brought on by the Laconia girls. With their confidence up and a good record to
start off the season, the girls went into their next game Sept. 18 against Winnisquam with the hopes of another win, and possibly another shut out. As the ball started rolling, the girls started running, and the sticks started hitting, spectators and players knew this was going to be the most intense game the girls had played thus far. Laconia for the first time this season was up for a real challenge. Feeling the pressure, the Laconia girls tried their best to keep the ball out of their zone. A few breaka-ways gave Maggie Randall, goalie for the team, a brief moment of relief, but this period did not last long. Charging back toward the goal, Winnisquam see FIELD HOCKEY next page

The Inter-Lakes girls’ soccer team ended last week with a record of 5-2 after splitting a pair of matches. The Lakers ended the week with a 5-0 home win against rival Moultonborough in the homecoming game on Friday. After a big defeat the day prior against White Mountains, the Lakers came ready to defend and stay undefeated on their home turf. Caitlin Rotonnelli started with 2 goals in the 1st half and added a third in the 2nd with assists from Kaylee Converse, Chloe Davis, and Emelia Pendergast. Pendergast soared a long range direct kick into the net and Sarah Dunlap finished off the final goal in the half with a Rotonnelli assist. Strong defense kept Moultonborough to a limited number of shots for the day. Rotonnelli’s streak of hat tricks have helped boost the Lakers to a 5-2 record as they headed into their third straight game on Monday at FIELD HOCKEY from preceding page closed in on the Laconia girls heading toward the goal. Laconias, reacting to the advance went on high alert to get the ball back down the field, but could not stop the advance in time. Laconia let the ball slip past Randall, but did not let this score break their spirit. The second half of the game proved to be more intense than the first, as the Laconia girls stepped up their game and had more frequent possession of the ball. Cheyanne Zappala, freshmen, darted down the field gaining possession of the ball. Receiving a wellexecuted pass, Danielle Cote charged after the ball next and helped move the ball further into Winnisquam’s territory. Nicole Boggart, receiving possession of the ball, headed toward the goal but was intercepted by an advance by Winnisquam. This advance was just one of many the girls had during the game. “Keep it coming this way! There you go!” screamed spectators from the sidelines. The crowd was focused on the ball now in possession of Giuliana Kevlin, as she worked skillfully to get the ball out of dangerous territory. Winnisquam girls were swarming the Laconia players, making various attempts to steal FOOTBALL from preceding page first was halted by an interception on Laconia’s ten yard line by Steven Kemos who returned back to mid-field. The final drive ended the game on the missed field goal. The Sachems had 75 yards passing and 158 yards on the ground for the evening. Laconia will host Hanover at Bank of New Hampshire Stadium on Friday Night.

Prospect Mountain. On Thursday, Inter-Lakes traveled to White Mountains for a 6-3 defeat. With 2 starting defenders out of the game, the Lakers came out flat in a scoreless 1st half while letting White Mtn score 3. The 2nd half was a bit more organized for the Lakers but White Mountain overpowered and out shot InterLakes for another 3 goals. Caitlin Rotonnelli came away with her 4th hat trick of the season scoring three times in the 2nd half.
Gilford volleyball knocks off Laconia in three games The Gilford volleyball team’s defense is improving and the team has won three games in a row, the most recent against area rival Laconia. Gilford won in 3 games by the scores of 25-10, 25-18 and 25-13. Gilford jumped out to a 16-4 lead in game one by serving 3 aces, recording 3 blocks and 8 kills. Jordan see next page the ball. As the ball shifted possession one could hear Mary Garside, retired coach of the varsity field hockey team, yelling “Challenge it! Challenge her! Put the pressure on girls.” Clearly Laconia was feeling the pressure. In a desperate attempt to put a score on the board before the game came to a close, Ashley Silva put power in her drive as she shuttled the ball back down to Kevlin. No one could question the endurance of the girls, as until the minute the buzzer sounded the girls were hustling on the field. Madeline Smith, defender for the team, stopped many advances and helped keep the ball from reaching Randall on various occasions. Although the girls were trying their best to keep the ball down the field, they felt the blow of three additional goals before the end of the game. This loss did not break their spirit though, rather it strengthened it. Leaving the field, Captain Danielle Cote stated, “We have grown as a team this year, and losing and winning is an experience that helps all players on the team bond. Each game we learn more how to situate ourselves to learn how to be more efficient, which is extremely beneficial in the long run. We will continue to learn from our mistakes and become a better team as the year goes on.” Cote’s words proved to have truth in them, as they entered their game against White Mountains on Friday with a new drive to get another win. During their game against White Mountains Annie Dionne put the first score on board for Laconia. Following suit, Kevlin scored an additional goal for the team, making the score 2-1. The team is hoping to secure another win this afternoon at Kennett High School.

GILFORD — New Hampshire Agriculture in the Classroom (NHAITC ) and the Belknap County Farm Bureau are sponsoring the fourth annual Belknap County School to Farm day on September 24-25 at the Ramblin’ Vewe Farm in Gilford. The event has grown rapidly, expanding to two days and reaching nearly 400 Belknap County fourth graders. Students from Alton, Barnstead, Gilford, Gilmanton, Laconia and New Hampton will meet farmers and learn about how agriculture impacts their daily lives. They will watch sheep being sheared, learn about how bees make honey, discover where milk comes from (hint: it’s not the grocery store), explore the mysteries of soil, find out how plants grow, drive a team of oxen, taste sweet maple syrup and more. All of the farms and organizations that are presenting come from within Belknap County so students will learn that some of the food and fiber
that they depend on is being produced locally. Participating teachers receive resources to help integrate agriculture into their curriculum. In addition to funding from the Belknap County Farm Bureau, this event is sponsored by Meredith Village Savings, Moulton Farm in Meredith, Farm Family Insurance (Ashland Office), Barbara and Bill Angevine, Lindon Garlic Farm in Gilmanton, Huckins Farm in New Hampton, Cabot Creamery Cooperative and the host Ramblin’ Vewe Farm in Gilford. Other volunteers include representatives from Belknap County Conservation District, Belknap County Cooperative Extension, Shepherd’s Hut wool workers, Pemi-Baker Beekeepers Association, Ox-K Farm in Gilford, Suroewic Farm in Sanbornton, and Prescott Farm Environmental Education Center in Laconia.

She is survived by her husband, John Larson, a son, Norman Larson and his wife Joyce, a daughter, Lacy Sutak, sisters, Ruth Laird and Elizabeth Mohr, brothers, John and Jeffrey Young, and her grandchildren, Ethan and Eric Larson, and Benjamin and Meredith Sutak. Mrs. Larson was born in Brooklyn Methodist Hospital to Methodist minister Louis Young and his wife, Jean, on November 19, 1940. She spent her pre-high school years in Patterson and Hackensack, New Jersey and high school in Trumbull, Connecticut. She graduated from Lycoming College in Williamsport, Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration. While in college, Mrs. Larson was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, a condition she struggled with for the rest of her life. After she married, she worked in an employment agency until she began to raise her family, which she did lovingly. She also worked part time as a church
youth fellowship director in various churches in Connecticut. Mrs. Larson enjoyed reading, flower gardening, all kinds of crafts and quilting. An avid card player, she enjoyed bridge, Michigan rummy and other games. She enjoyed watching television, especially classic movies. She played the piano and computer games. She excelled at canning and her family looked forward each Christmas to receiving her cross-cut pickles and peach jelly. She especially enjoyed making hand stitched quilts and giving them to family and friends. As her health failed, she loved to sit in her recliner watching television, especially westerns, or “talent shows” like “Dancing with the Stars” and “Bachelor/Bachelorette”. Her funeral will be private. Donations in her name may be made to The National Multiple Sclerosis Society or the Taylor Community Sunshine Fund. The family would like to extend a heartfelt thanks for the wonderful care extended to Mrs. Larson during her residence at Taylor. For Patricia’s Book of Memories: www.mayhewfuneralhomes.com

Doreen A. Knight, 76 LACONIA — After years of giving to our Community, sadly, Doreen Knight, RN, died on September 19, 2013 at the Laconia Rehabilitation Center. Doreen always knew that nursing was the career for her. In high school, she volunteered as a junior nurses’ aide, called “candy stripers”, the first person to ever do so in Minneapolis. She then studied 48 months to earn both her Registered Nurse [RN] and a Bachelors’ degree in Nursing Science, from Hamline University, in St. Paul, Minnesota, in 1959. She later earned her Masters’ degree, from Plymouth State University. The week after university graduation, she married Gerald Knight, and they immediately moved to Boston, where Doreen became the evening charge nurse in infant surgery, at Boston’s Childrens’ Hospital. In 1960, they moved to New Hampshire and gave all their energies to their new home state. Doreen did bed-side nursing at Cottage Hospital in Woodsville, at Dartmouth-Hitchcock [then in Hanover], Littleton Hospital and Laconia’s Lakes Region General Hospital. Doreen’s nursing career changed greatly when she worked for 13 years for the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services, in epidemiology. She specialized in searching for communicable disease sources, especially TB. Her efforts ultimately saved the lives of countless New Hampshire citizens. Doreen’s contribution to the Lakes Region’s medical services came in the 1970’s, when Betty Farmlett, Edna Gadd, Bobbi Thomas, Alida Millham and Doreen established what is today’s Central New Hampshire Visiting Nurses Association [VNA] and Hospice. That
agency today is one of the Lakes Region’s most honorable sources to countless people. Her work in Hospice has become well known and appreciated by hundreds of Lakes Region families. She eventually specialized in the area of Bereavement, a Hospice program that continues to this day. Memorials honoring Doreen, may be sent to Central NH VNA & Hospice, at 780 North Main; Laconia, NH 03246 Doreen is survived by her husband of 54 years, Gerald; a daughter, Sara O’Sullivan, of Belmont and her fiancée, Robin Lounsbury. She has three grandchildren, Jonathan O’Sullivan and his wife Kaitlyn of Laconia and Emma and Samuel Knight, of Greenfield, Massachusetts. Also, a son, Jeffrey in Vermont and her sister-inlaw Margaret Johnson and nephews Eric Johnson and Dr. Timothy Johnson, all of Minnesota. Visiting for family and friends will begin at 1 p.m., Sunday, September 29, 2013 in the Carriage House of the Wilkinson-Beane-Simoneau-Paquette Funeral Home, 164 Pleasant Street, Laconia. A service honoring Doreen and her contributions to the Lakes Region will follow at 3 p.m. also at the Funeral Home. Following the service, a special social hour will be at the Beane Conference Center, 39 Blueberry Lane, Laconia. As Doreen wished, the service’s theme of “September” even continues to the social hour! Wilkinson-Beane-Simoneau-Paquette Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 164 Pleasant Street, Laconia, N.H. is assisting the family with the arrangements.

LACONIA — The Lake Winnipesaukee Museum is hosting a presentation of “The Weeks Act of 1911-Conservatives, Conservation and Not One Cent for Scenery”, on Wednesday September 25 at 7 p.m. Carl Lindblade said the act was passed by Congress and, for the first time authorized the use of federal money to purchase private land for national forests. The White Mountain National Forest was the result. Congressman Weeks was a NH native and conservative Republican from back bay Boston. The story continues as he fought for the bill against Democratic Speaker Cannon who famously said “Not one damn cent for Scenery.” Lindblade began his hotel career at the Balsams Resort in Dixville Notch and for the past 40+ years has operated 3 and 4 diamond hotels and resorts. In addition to years of hands on experience he brings a commitment to community and industry service. He is currently a lecturer in the hospitality management department at the University of New Hampshire where he enjoys teaching as it affords him the opportunity to share experiences with students. This lecture is free for current LWHS Museum members and $5 per person for non members. Refreshments will be served. RSVP to 366-5950 for this event.

Soviet takeover, the only nation that would accept him was Nazi Germany. In 1940 Berlin, he meets a young German woman, Lilo, and a love story begins that will endure more than 70 years and span two continents. Rolf’s worst fear comes to pass when he is drafted into the Luftwaffe in 1941. Despite the immeasurable evil, suffering and desolation of World War II, a synchronistic chain of events enables Rolf and Lilo to see their most cherished dreams materialize out of postwar catastrophe and ruin. For Rolf, that includes a career in aerospace engineering with the Chrysler Missile and Space Division during the “Age of Big Rockets” in the 1950s and 60s.The author will discuss the book’s subject matter, protagonists, inspiration, and special research accompanied by World War II era photographs.

try to express yourself in the heat of an angry moment. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). So often the roles we cut out for ourselves become like traps. Real power is feeling that you are free to be the role or not and come or go as you please. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your sign mate Abraham Lincoln, the great humanitarian and 16th president of the United States, said, “When I do good, I feel good; when I do bad, I feel bad. And that is my religion.” PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When receiving a compliment on work that was done by someone else, for instance for a haircut or an item of clothing, some take the credit. You’ll assign it appropriately, and your honesty attracts an admirer. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 24). Your talents shine this year, but do not rely on them. It’s hard work and dedication that will see you through the finish line of a big project. Someone with opposing views will make your work and life richer in October. You’ll get to experience something special and exclusive in December. Aries and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 2, 33, 19 and 4. Today’s Birthdays: Actor-singer Herb Jeffries is 102. Actress Sheila MacRae is 92. Rhythm-and-blues singer Sonny Turner is 74. Singer Barbara Allbut is 73. Singer Phyllis “Jiggs” Allbut is 71. Singer Gerry Marsden is 71. News anchor Lou Dobbs is 68. Pro and College Football Hall of Famer Joe Greene is 67. Actor Gordon Clapp is 65. Songwriter Holly Knight is 57. Actor Kevin Sorbo is 55.

Contemporary Christian musician Juan DeVevo (Casting Crowns) is 38. Actor Justin Bruening is 34. Olympic gold medal gymnast Paul Hamm (hahm) is 31. Actor Erik Stocklin is 31. Actor Kyle Sullivan is 25.
HOROSCOPE ARIES (March 21-April 19). Beware of those who associate with you primarily because they think it makes them look better. While this is flattering, it’s so superficial that you can’t trust the connection. It could change at any moment. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You believe in every person’s right to live well. That’s why it makes you angry when people waste the things that would mean so much to another person. You’ll proudly take part of an effective redistribution. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You believe that life is full of beauty. But for some reason, people talking about that in overly simplistic and sentimental ways makes you feel inwardly rebellious. You prefer to find beauty on your own terms. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Should you stick to your ritual or veer from it? Every time you repeat an action, it strengthens the neural pathways in your brain that make the next repetition easier. Will that be better for you or worse? LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Just because you can sense the layers inside yourself and spend time in those depths doesn’t mean others are able to do this. Your gift for introspection is a rare talent to celebrate. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A person who enjoys you will tend to overlook any less than perfect things you do and even make up reasons why your flaws and mistakes are actually glorious. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There are those who will try to get away with anything and everything they can. It’s up to you to uphold the ideal of justice for all. Where justice is denied, everyone suffers, not only the oppressed. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It’s as though the wind wants to mess up your hair -- and not in a mean way, but in an older sibling way that lets you know that wherever you are, someone is keeping you in check. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Anger is an emotion that makes you seek your own interest instead of seeking the truth. That’s why it’s better not to make any decisions or

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Tuesday, Sept. 24, the 267th day of 2013. There are 98 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 24, 1976, former hostage Patricia Hearst was sentenced to seven years in prison for her part in a 1974 bank robbery in San Francisco carried out by the Symbionese Liberation Army. Hearst was released after 22 months after receiving clemency from President Jimmy Carter. On this date: In 1789, Congress passed a Judiciary Act, which provided for an attorney general and a Supreme Court. In 1869, thousands of businessmen were ruined in a Wall Street panic known as Black Friday after financiers Jay Gould and James Fisk attempted to corner the gold market. In 1929, Lt. James H. Doolittle guided a Consolidated NY-2 Biplane over Mitchel Field in New York in the first all-instrument flight. In 1948, Mildred Gillars, accused of being Nazi wartime radio propagandist “Axis Sally,” pleaded not guilty in Washington, D.C., to charges of treason. Gillars, later convicted, ended up serving 12 years in prison. In 1955, President Dwight D. Eisenhower suffered a heart attack while on vacation in Denver. In 1961, “Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color” premiered on NBC. In 1963, the U.S. Senate ratified a treaty with Britain and the Soviet Union limiting nuclear testing. In 1969, the trial of the “Chicago Eight” (later seven) began. Five of the defendants were later convicted of crossing state lines to incite riots at the 1968 Democratic National Convention, but the convictions were ultimately overturned. In 1991, kidnappers in Lebanon freed British hostage Jack Mann after holding him captive for more than two years. Children’s author Theodor Seuss Geisel (GY’-zul), better known as Dr. Seuss, died in La Jolla, Calif., at age 87. In 2001, President George W. Bush ordered a freeze on the assets of 27 people and organizations with suspected links to terrorism, including Islamic militant Osama bin Laden, and urged other nations to do likewise. Ten years ago: After four turbulent months, three special legislative sessions and two Democratic walkouts, both houses of the Republicancontrolled Texas Legislature adopted redistricting plans favoring the GOP. The top candidates vying to replace California Governor Gray Davis joined in a lively debate. Five years ago: Officials reopened Galveston, Texas, to residents who were warned about Hurricane Ike’s debris and disruption of utilities. Japanese lawmakers elected Taro Aso, leader of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, prime minister. One year ago: President Barack Obama told the ABC talk show “The View” that the deadly attack earlier in the month on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, was not the result of mob violence; he said “there’s no doubt” that the assault wasn’t spontaneous. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney accused Obama of minimizing the Benghazi attack as a mere “bump in the road.” Provocative ads began appearing in New York City subways, equating Muslim radicals with savages.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, September 24, 2013— Page 25
Dear Annie: My fiance’s mother has a rocky relationship with both of her sons. We see her infrequently, but still, my fiance loses his patience with her quickly. At first I was OK with her, but now she annoys me, as well. She brags about things, pleads to get her way, plans visits without checking with us, is sensitive to being told no or to anything she perceives as criticism, and is very demanding. She also recently pulled a childish trick. When my fiance told her no repeatedly, she simply called me to plead her case, knowing I am uncomfortable saying no. She is in her late 60s and continues to blame her actions on a rocky childhood. My mother says to just be polite to her, which I try hard to do. But now that she is in my home for a week, conversations with her are impossible, and I feel I need to walk away. She has a psychiatric disorder, although I am not sure of the diagnosis. My fiance’s grandmother indicates it is schizophrenia, so I don’t want to push her too far. We are getting married soon at a courthouse. During this unplanned and uninvited trip, she said it is too expensive for her and my fiance’s father to travel to see us get married. I am fine with this, but my fiance is upset that his parents do not care enough to make it work. They can afford the airline tickets. I think it is my fiance’s place to explain his hurt feelings to them. Do I continue to be polite about it? I am currently working long hours to avoid being in my home while she is visiting. Is there a better way to handle this? -- Z. Dear Z.: Yes, please continue to be polite. We recognize that his mother’s behavior is difficult, but you see her infrequently, so try to tolerate her as best you can for your fiance’s sake. He obviously cares a great deal about his parents. He should tell them how impor-
tant it is to him that they attend the wedding, but he cannot control their response. We hope they will make the effort to be there, and we hope you will be supportive without commiserating too much. Dear Annie: Lately, it seems as if my siblings have been ignoring me, except for the eldest. I’m a teenager, and my siblings are older. The eldest tries to involve me in everything she can, but she’s moved out of the house. The other two go off and have fun, and when I try to join in, they give me nasty looks and tell me to go away. What should I do about them? -- Indiana Teen Dear Teen: You should recalibrate your expectations. Your siblings are not responsible for your social life. We know it hurts when they go off without you, but such rudeness is not uncommon. Learn to ignore them. When they leave, casually wave goodbye and be occupied with something else. As you grow up, this situation will improve, but it will take time. Meanwhile, phone or text your friends and schedule some activities so you are less focused on what your siblings are doing. It also will make you much more interesting to them if you seem independently busy and happy. If you need help doing this, talk to your parents, your school counselor, a favorite teacher or other trusted adult. Dear Annie: I’m responding to the comment from “Germantown, Tenn.,” about store employees being forced to stand all day. That’s part of their job description and how products get to the shelves. In the store that I manage, the older employees never have complained about standing all day. -- The Manager Dear Manager: The fact that your employees don’t complain doesn’t mean they aren’t suffering. Standing is OK if you get to walk around, but otherwise, it is hard on the feet and back.
