New stop signs on Gilford cross street will stay in place By Gail OBer


GILFORD — Despite a petition organized in protest, the selectmen last night decided the new stop signs on Ridgewood Avenue will stay right where they are. But although nearly 20 people signed the petition to remove the three-way stop, the neighborhood residents who packed last night’s selectman’s meeting were overwhelmingly in favor of keeping them. “I’m delighted to see the stop signs,” said Blythe Gustafson who lives in the Ridgewood Avenue home with her family that she grew up in. “My 10-year old can ride his bike see stOP sIGNs page 8

Supreme Court strikes blow against tax caps but GOP lawmakers likely to ride quickly to the rescue By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

CONCORD — In a unanimous opinion issued yesterday, the New Hampshire Supreme Court ruled that the property tax cap approved by the voters of Manchester in November 2009 violates state law by requiring a super-majority of twothirds of the board of mayor and aldermen to override the limit the cap imposes on the increase in the annual city budget.

The decision applies to a similar ordinance adopted in Laconia in 2005 as well as tax caps enacted in Franklin, Derry, Dover, Nashua and Rochester. City Manager Eileen Cabanel said yesterday that she has asked Judith Whitelaw, the city attorney, to report on the ramifications of the opinion for the 2011-12 budget process.

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Corpses, cancer patients and diseased lungs are among the images the federal government plans for larger, graphic warning labels that would take up half of each pack of cigarettes sold in the United States. Whether smokers addicted to nicotine will see them as a reason to quit remains a question. The images are part of a new campaign announced by the Food and Drug Administration and the Department of Health and Human Services on Wednesday to reduce tobacco use, which is responsible for about 443,000 deaths per year. “Some very explicit, almost gruesome pictures may be necessary,” FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg said in an interview with The Associated Press. “This is a very, very serious public health issue, with very, very serious medical consequences,” such as cancer, heart disease, strokes and lung diseases. The share of Americans who smoke has fallen dramatically since 1970, from nearly 40 percent to about 20 percent, but the rate has stalled since about 2004. About 46 million adults in the U.S. smoke cigarettes.

Deficit Commission targets Social Security & mortgage tax break WASHINGTON (AP) — In a politically incendiary plan, the bipartisan leaders of President Barack Obama’s deficit commission proposed curbs in Social Security benefits, deep reductions in federal spending and higher taxes for millions of Americans Wednesday to stem a flood of red ink that they said threatens the nation’s very future. The White House responded coolly, some leading lawmakers less so to proposals that target government programs long considered all but sacred. Besides Social Security, Medicare spending would be curtailed. Tax breaks for many health care plans, too. And the Pentagon’s budget, as well, in a plan designed to cut total deficits by as much as $4 trillion over the next decade. The plan arrived exactly one week after elections that featured strong voter demands for economic change in Washington. But criticism was immediate from

advocacy groups on the left and, to some extent, the right at the start of the postelection debate on painful steps necessary to rein in out-of-control deficits. The plan would gradually increase the retirement age for full Social Security benefits — to 69 by 2075 — and current recipients would receive smaller-thananticipated annual increases. Equally controversial, it would eliminate the current tax deduction that homeowners receive for the interest they pay on their mortgages. No one is expecting quick action on any of the plan’s pieces. Proposed cuts to Social Security and Medicare are making liberals recoil. And conservative Republicans are having difficulty with options suggested for raising taxes. The plan also calls for cuts in farm subsidies, foreign aid and the Pentagon’s budget. The document was released by Democrat

Erskine Bowles, a former Clinton White House chief of staff, and Republican Alan Simpson, a former senator from Wyoming. Acknowledging the controversy involved, Simpson quipped to reporters: “We’ll both be in a witness protection program when this is all over, so look us up.” Said Bowles: “This is a starting point.” Controversial or not, Bowles said serious action was demanded. He declared, “This debt is like a cancer that will truly destroy this country from within if we don’t fix it.” The government reported separately Wednesday that the deficit for last month alone was $140.4 billion — and that was 20 percent lower than a year earlier. The red ink for all of the past fiscal year was $1.29 trillion, second highest on record, and this year is headed for the third straight total above $1 trillion.

SAN DIEGO (AP) — The food on the disabled cruise ship Carnival Splendor is cold and the lines to get it stretch for hours. And with the pool and casinos closed and rooms pitch black and stuffy, the nearly 4,500 people and crew on board passed the time with live music, scavenger hunts and trivia contests as they are slowly towed to San Diego. The bar is also open and offering free drinks. Two tugboats were pulling the 952-foot ship back to the U.S. The journey could take at least until late Thursday.

The ship entered cell phone range on Wednesday and the crew set up a bank of eight Satellite phones, allowing passengers mostly cut off from communication since an engine fire disabled the vessel on Monday to finally reach loved ones — and provide the first details of the conditions on board. Among them was David Zambrano, who phoned his employer, Denver TV station 9NEWS, and said people were trying to keep their spirits up by singing, socializing and playing cards. Rooms in the interior of the ship were

dark, and passengers propped open their doors to let in air and emergency lighting from the hallways, Zambrano said. “So really, all we’re doing is just kind of hanging out on a boat waiting for the next mealtime,” Zambrano said. Mealtime requires a two-hour wait for cold food, he said. Navy helicopters flew in Spam, Pop Tarts and canned crab meat and other goods for the passengers and crew. “It’s almost like a diet cruise because we’ve been eating salads and fruit and small sandwiches,” Zambrano said. see SHIP page 11

Auburn man accused of killing his wife with a flashlight, 4-year-old also dead CANDIA, N.H. (AP) — A man appeared in court Wednesday on charges he beat his wife to death with a flashlight, but authorities still haven’t said who killed the couple’s 4-year-old son, who was found strangled alongside his mother. Christopher Smeltzer, 37, of Auburn, was arrested late Tuesday and charged with second-degree murder in the death of his wife, Mara Pappalardo Smeltzer, 39. She and son Mason were found dead Monday in the couple’s home, and her husband and the couple’s 7-year-old daughter were taken to a hospital for treatment of undisclosed injuries. Smeltzer was arraigned Wednesday in Candia District Court, where he entered no plea and did not speak other than to answer “yes” when asked if he accepted his court appointed lawyer. According to a complaint filed with the court, he is accused of killing his wife by hitting her in the head multiple times with a flashlight. The medical examiner also said she died by ligature strangulation. Arrest warrants and affidavits in the case were sealed; Public Defender John Newman argued that he should

be able to see them so he could prepare for Smeltzer’s next court appearance, expected later this month. Senior Assistant Attorney General Jane Young objected, and several minutes after they approached Judge David LeFrancois, he ruled to keep the documents sealed. Young later said authorities were still investigating the circumstances of Mason’s death. “The house is still being searched, interviews are being conducted, and that will continue over the next several days, if not several weeks,” Young said. “We are trying to protect the integrity of the investigation to make sure we can get all the evidence to determine what happened in that residence.” Other court records show that Mara Smeltzer had filed a petition seeking custody of the children in September. She told a Salem family court judge she was homeless and living with her mother-in-law, and that she couldn’t afford to pay any court fees at the time but would once she was back on her feet. There is no indication the petition was ever served on her husband. see FLASHLIGHT page 11

Wolfeboro jury award overturned CONCORD (AP) — The New Hampshire Supreme Court on Wednesday reversed a $6.7 million verdict against a wireless communications provider, saying its advertising campaign against a competitor was protected as free speech. Fifth Estate Tower waged the postcard and advertising campaign to defeat a bid by Green Mountain Realty Corporation to install communications towers in Wolfboro. Wolfboro voters defeated the proposal in a special town meeting in 2005. Green Mountain sued, eventually winning the jury verdict against Fifth Estate. In its unanimous ruling, the Supreme Court ruled that Fifth

Estate’s campaign was political speech and exempt from the state Consumer Protection Act. It rejected Green Mountain’s argument that the campaign contained false claims and, therefore, violated the act. The justices noted that even if Fifth Estate’s campaign involved unfair or deceptive practices, the act does not apply because Fifth Estate’s conduct occurred in a political setting. Its campaign against Green Mountain Realty, the court wrote, used public media “for the purpose of influencing political decisions of the general electorate.” Green Mountain lawyer Robert Ciandella said the company had no comment.

Kirk Cassavaugh murder conviction upheld CONCORD (AP) — The New Hampshire Supreme Court has upheld the murder convictions of a Belmont man who killed a brother and sister in 2006. Kirkman Cassavaugh III was convicted of killing his girlfriend — 26-year-old Jennifer Huard — and her 29-year-old brother, Jeremy. The court ruled it was lawful to admit Cassavaugh’s threat to kill Jen-

nifer Huard, which a friend of hers had overheard during a phone conversation two months before the killings. The court also said other evidence of guilt was overwhelming, such as freshly caulked bullet holes in Cassavaugh’s refrigerator. The bodies were found in a debris pile in Cassavaugh’s back yard. He was sentenced to 40 years to life in prison.

Washington state says ‘no’ to soak the rich scheme Do Americans share President Obama’s desire to impose redistributive social justice on the well off? In liberal Washington State, of all places, voters gave a definitive answer this Tuesday: No! The resounding rejection of a punitive “Robin Hood” initiative shows that it’s not just red-state Republicans who oppose extreme tax hikes on the nation’s wealth generators. As Capitol Hill resumes debate on whether to extend the so-called “Bush tax cuts,” the White House should pay special heed to the fate of little-noticed Initiative 1098. Its defeat by a whopping 65-35 margin doesn’t bode well for Team Obama’s class warriors still clinging bitterly to their soak-the-rich schemes. Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner insisted this summer that saddling higher earners with higher taxes was “the responsible thing to do.” Given the chance to weigh in at the ballot box, a diverse majority of voters in the other Washington determined otherwise. The Evergreen State is just one of seven states in the nation without a personal income tax. The ballot measure, which would have enacted a state income tax on the wealthiest 1-percent of Washington residents to raise $2-billion for bankrupt public schools, was sponsored by Microsoft founder Bill Gates and his left-wing corporate lawyer father. Top donors? The Service Employees International Union, whose state and national chapters threw in a combined $2.5-million of its members’ hard-earned dues money, and the National Education Association, which pitched in nearly $760,000. Hiding behind kiddie human shields, the I-1098 campaign assailed the wealthy for “not paying their fair share” and plastered their campaign literature with sad-faced students and toddlers. Big Labor has been pushing a punish-thewealthy movement for months. According to Forbes magazine, “six of the 10 states with the highest income tax rates — Oregon, California, Hawaii, New York, New Jersey and North Carolina — raised their levies on high earners, at least temporarily” last year. But business owners large and small, representing companies from Bartell Drugs to, successfully fought back against the job-killing measure in Washington State. Disavowing the Gateses, Microsoft honcho Steve Ballmer also joined the opposition. The software company’s senior executives expressed grave concern “about the impact I-1098 will have on the state’s ability to attract top tech talent in the future.” Liberal newspaper editorial boards including the Seattle Times and Tacoma News Tribune added their objec-

tions, citing I-1098’s reckless targeting of wealth-creation in the middle of a recession and the inevitable extension and increase of income taxes to the middle class. And economists at the independent, nonpartisan Beacon Hill Institute at Suffolk University found that I-1098’s tax burdens would lengthen and deepen the current economic downturn by destroying private sector jobs, reducing residents’ disposable income and prolonging the state’s high unemployment rate. Amber Gunn of the free-market Evergreen Freedom Foundation in Olympia, Wash., gave the bottom line on I-1098’s unreality-based advocates: “Initiative proponents like to operate in a Keynesian world where higher tax rates and their effects on human behavior and competitiveness among states don’t matter. But those effects are present in the real world and must be accounted for.” I-1098’s promoters tried to disguise their wealth-suppression vehicle as tax “relief” by tossing in a few stray targeted cuts. But they were called out by a judge and slapped with a court order to make the income tax burden explicit in the ballot title. If only the taxmen in Washington, D.C., were required to do the same. Obama’s budget proposal is a soakthe-rich scheme adorned with a few business tax breaks that would — for starters — impose nearly $1-trillion in higher taxes on couples making more than $250,000 and individuals making more than $200,000. Some “relief.” On Thursday afternoon, still smarting from the nationwide “shellacking” the Democrats received on Election Day, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs signaled that Obama would be willing to “entertain” temporary — not permanent — tax relief for the nation’s highest earners. But a time-limited reprieve in prolonged economic hard times is expedient politics and bad policy. Tax relief should be all or none. The new House majority should force the Democrats to choose. Republicans must stop allowing the White House to demonize America’s entrepreneurs and producers. By continuing to refer to them as beneficiaries of the “Bush tax cuts” instead of as the besieged victims of Obama tax increases, the GOP cedes the moral high ground. It’s time to make the White House own its noxious war on wealth. (Syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin is the daughter of Filipino Immigrants.

LETTERS We must, as a community, prioritize in these difficult economic times To the editor, This is the time of year that we asked by our community leaders to increase our participation in our limited democracy, while they attempt to befuddle us with misinformation, misdirection and malfeasance. We, as participants in this badly orchestrated delusional exercise are asked to refer to the current, ignore the past, and delay our consideration of the ramifications of the chimera that is being presented to us to make our informed decision. It is no wonder, that we have scheduled this elective process so close to Halloween. Ah, so much for the elective process, let us not forget that while we are considering the enchantment of our political system, we have other critical issues before us as small community. These issues involve the monetary process of community (municipal and school budget) and the services that we are to receive as a result of this process. It is surprising or maybe not that these important issues are run in a parallel manner to the elective process. Is this process one of a deliberative and crafty effort to allow the populace not to have to examine the use of their monies by allowing the misinformation, misdirection, and malfeasance of the election process or to be so overwhelmed with the negativity of the campaign process that they will not utilize the just care warranted to assure that the monies being appropriated are fair, just, and providing the services that are needed. The municipal budgets of the towns of Tilton and Northfield have shown remarkable constraints in these difficult times. We may argue about specific components of budget such as the potential fire district costs and some of us would debate the need to return to the system of the volunteer on-call system for the fire district. We may debate how certain components of the town system have become negative in their approach to town safety issues and the services that we need as a community may not be as effective as can be but for the budget process, I applaud the town community system of budgeting for it has questioned and

attempted to resolve the hard questions that have arose. The school component of this community’s budgetary process has to proceed along these lines and has much adversity to overcome. WE must decide as a community, what services do we want our school system to provide, at what level can we as a community afford to continue to be questioned by the state and federal government as to the effectiveness of our teaching curriculum or methods, and what is the level of funding are WE willing to allow for the services we as a community expect from this component of our community. WE, as a community must decide what an appropriate funding amount of these services is and whether there are areas that WE must as a community prioritize in these difficult economic times. WE, as a community need to decide whether WE want a flat budget or one that reflects the savings that the municipal side of this budget process has managed to carve out. WE, as a community need to become active in this process and express our views to the Winnisquam School District Budget Committee of which I volunteered to be a member. WE, as a community do a disservice to ourselves and our children by remaining passive or in some cases by being passive-aggressive as individuals and as a community because of our anger. I would welcome your feedback and input as to the direction that this budget process should precede so I may pass on this data to the committee during our meetings and truly represent the thoughts on this important process. It is through this dialogue that you the citizens of this excellent community can reinforce the foundation of our community democracy and control your own destiny. I would like to impress on you, that this is your money and your government, so utilize them in an active and practical manner. Please feel free to contact me through my e-mail address which is with any feedback or input that you may wish to share. Wayne Brock Tilton

LETTERS Why was Kimberly Cates’ life worth less than a police officer’s? To the editor, Last Friday I wrote a letter about how I believe capital punishment is not only absolutely right in some extreme instances, but necessary. I think that one of the best compliments you can be paid as a writer to these editorials is when you use strong language to make a point and there is no rebuttal from the usual suspects. Yesterday, Stephen Spader was sentenced to life in jail without parole. It’s not good enough, and here are two reasons why; First off, people who believe that capital punishment should be abolished always cite parents or spouses of murder victims who find peace in later life, or ones who find solace in knowing that the killer(s) will spend life in jail or even ones who ‘forgive’ the killer(s) and wish them well. They make it sound like this is the norm, or that the people who feel this way some how set the moral bar for how victim’s relatives should act. This absurd. I’m sure that for every example of a victim’s relative who forgives their child or spouses or family’s killer I could find THOUSANDS of those who do not. Included in that list is David Cates who stated, “…the upcoming sentence is not justice. My only hope is that very soon, true justice finds you.” I hope so too David. Secondly, I believe that the law here in New Hampshire is unconstitutional. In the fourteenth amendment to the Constitution, the Equal Protection Clause states that “no state shall… deny to any person within it’s jurisdiction the equal

protection of its laws” In New Hampshire, unless it’s a kidnapping, sexual assault, contract killing or a state employee who is in the legal business (police, judge, prosecutor, etc..) then the death penalty is not able to be legally pursued. Is that equal protection? Kimberly Cates was a nurse who was instrumental in improving the quality of life of strangers. My brother-in-law is a radiologist in the same hospital where she worked. He shared a story with me of how he had a specific memory of her. She had brought a patient down to him, but he remembered her for her gentle demeanor and overly nice personality. Everything that I have read or heard about her was that she was a genuine, lovely person. With all due respect to the men and women who serve as police officers, will somebody please explain to me how her life is worth any less than that of a peace officer? If the state is responsible for equality for all men and women, then the punishments should be equal as well, no matter what profession you work in, because I would argue that Kimberly helped or saved as many lives in during her nursing tenure as any police officer during that same time. If any lawmakers are reading this, I am pleading with you to revisit this law and make it so that the next time an animal like Stephen Spader has his way with an outstanding citizen such as Kimberly Cates, justice will be served equally no matter what profession the person happens to thrive in. Thomas Lemay Laconia

The over-riding message of campaign was need to reduce spending To the editor, I am deeply humbled and honored that the voters of District 4 selected me as their next State Senator. I want to wish my opponent Andrew Hosmer and his family all the best. I know very well how much of a strain a campaign is on the family, and I appreciate the sacrifices Andrew and his family made during this campaign. I also would like to congratulate Senator Sgambati on her retirement. She put in a lot of time and effort to serve as the Lakes Region senator for four years. I am extremely grateful for all the hard work of our volunteers who made our campaign a success. Together, we knocked on over 10,000 doors, made thousands of phone calls, and distributed literature to the entire district. To everyone who helped out by driving me around, showing your support at an event, or braving the cold to stand outside of the polls, I extend my sincerest gratitude. I am also incredibly grateful for my two campaign managers — Zach Azem (for the primary) and Andrew Sharp (for the general). They went above and beyond the call of duty and made it easier for me to

travel the district and talk to as many voters as possible. The over-riding message of our campaign was that we need to reduce spending so that we can reduce taxes on businesses and property owners in order to create jobs. Now that we are past the election, the difficult work to achieve these results begins. We need to keep in mind that, while the Republicans won veto-proof majorities in the Senate and House, our job is to represent all of the residents of New Hampshire, no matter which party they belong to. Above all, we must work to ensure that government remains a servant of the people, and not the other way around. Again, I am honored to have the opportunity to serve you as your next State Senator. I am always available by e-mail ( or by phone (cell: 822-2588), and you can sign up for updates at I look forward to hearing from you over the next two years about how I can better represent you in Concord. Jim Forsythe State Senator-elect, District 4 Strafford

We have seen no reliable evidence that Obama was born in U.S. To the editor, Froma Harrop’s Nov. 10 column had an error. She omitted a very important adverb in her opening statement. She said “Barack Hussein Obama, the mixed race president born in Hawaii,...” To be accurate, she should

There has so far been no reliable evidence provided that he was actually born in Hawaii. And simply branding people kooks or racists when they ask for such evidence in light of all the questions raised is no longer good enough.

To the editor, It isn’t any news to anyone that Social Security (S.S.) is going broke. Last year it paid out more money than it took in. Same is likely this year. All the major entitlements programs are broke and neither party wants to deal with fixing them for fear their message will be fear mongered or used as a chess piece to gain a political upper hand. It is politics at it’s lowest. S.S. is a guaranteed benefit, not an asset — it’s first flaw. There is no guarantee you will ever collect one penny of benefit despite having paid into it for a working lifetime. The rate of return is related to treasury debt instruments returning a paltry 2 or 3-percent. Good for Uncle Sam, lousy for you. The very best option for maximizing your best interests would be to establish a S.S.asset that is in YOUR name and can be passed on to an heir. One where the contributions are pegged to returns in the equity market, not the bond market. Shouldn’t all Americans want to be first and foremost invested in the economic genius and engine that is the American economy and profit from it. The secret of success to this investment is the 40 year time horizon of deposits that flatten out moves both up and down. It allows for an averaging in of investments in both cheap and expensive markets. Since 1926 the stock market as measured by the S&P

500 has returned an astonishing average of 9.66-percent per year. The average S.S. payment to those retired is around $1,000 a month. Current retirees if they had been indexed to stocks rather than bonds might be getting as much as three times that amount. Ironically, the people who would benefit most by this approach fear it most. Why? Because Democrats fear monger any change to S.S. no matter how logical because the current formula chains the hands and wrists of their voter base to government & socialism rather than capitalism with all it’s opportunity, especially over long periods. Any 25 year old seeking the very best investment counsel he or she could get from ANY certified financial planner whether that adviser be registered Democrat, Republican or independent will get almost identical advice.That advice will be to put almost all those investments into stocks, NOT BONDS. It is well known that the best course of action to prepare for a known far future financial need is to invest in the equity markets. Democrats knowingly and willfully minimize the S.S. income levels of every American, holding them hostage and taking advantage of their fears and insecurities all for a vote. Tony Boutin Gilford

I thank you for the opportunity to represent you; it’s been a privilege of the highest order. I hope I’ve made some small difference in how Concord impacts on your lives. Thanks for your communications, your votes, and your support. To those who worked on my campaign, I can never repay your generosity. The fact that it was unsuccessful is not in any way attributable to your wonderful efforts. But today is a new day! I congratulate all the candidates who will now represent the towns in Belknap County District #5. For the near term, my wife, Erika, and I await the arrival of our 7th grandbaby and look for-

ward to spending the holidays with family. However, our commitment to the community continues with St. Vincent de Paul, Neighbors in Need, and any other way we can serve the Lakes Region. I also do NOT intend to leave the political world. I have already contacted the local newspapers about continuing my “Legislative Alerts,” only now as an outside commentator. As one editor put it, I will now be a part of the “loyal opposition”. My analysis of future legislation and budgets will be disseminated as in the past – both via newspaper “op-ed” articles and by email to the district’s voters. In the meanwhile, enjoy the coming holidays with your families and friends. Bill Johnson Gilford

My letter was written tongue-in-cheek & not to be taken literally To the editor, I’m sorry that Ed Chase missed my point in my letter about the southern pastor who was going to burn the Koran. It was a tongue-in-cheek letter in which I was trying to say that it was easy for most Christians to take a stand against that pastor because they were in no personal danger in doing so. This pastor did NOT have a large following of armed terrorists ready to kill those who opposed him. In the Mideast, when

moderate Muslims speak out against the terrorists, they and their entire families can be killed. The point I was trying to make that was taken literally by Mr. Chase is that it is easy to tell others that they should sacrifice their lives and the lives of family members but if we are in the same position, we might also be less likely to do so.

LETTERS Our annual ‘Harvest of Quilts’ wouldn’t be success without support To the editor, The Belknap Mill Quilters’ Guild extends a thank you to the following area businesses for their support of its 33rd annual quilt show. Our annual “Harvest of Quilts” would not be a success without their support. Thank you to, BJ’s Club, Coca Cola of Belmont, Demoulas, Hannaford’s of Gilford and Meredith, Dunkin Donuts of Tilton, Laconia Ice Company, Michaud Quality Snacks, Shaw’s Supermarket of of Belmont, Gilford and Tilton, Taylor Rental of Belmont, Vista Foods, Walgreens of Laconia, and Walmart of Gilford, Cathy and Jack Eastman of the Conference Center, Lake Opechee Inn & Spa and Dave Lavalley of Bittersweet Fabrics in Boscawen, New Hampshire.

Thank you. BMQG was proud to display 46 wall

hangings from “Thanking Our TroopsGod Bless America” traveling quilt show, originating in Oklahoma and on a 3 year tour of America. We were delighted to display over 200 quilts, which included 11 junior quilts made by children ranging from 6 to13 years of age, along with member’s quilts. Proceeds from the quilt show are used to help support local agencies; including The Salvation Army, St. Vincent de Paul and area food pantries.

Comfort Quilts made by the Guild are provided for the local police and fire departments and for New Beginnings shelter. Police and fire vehicles are equipped with BMQG quilts to provide comfort to accident and fire victims. The Laconia police department places a quilt in each of their annual holiday baskets. Lastly, we thank the general public for attending our show. Without the support of local communities, our Guild would not thrive and grow.

I only recently starting watching MS-NBC & never listen to NPR To the editor, Well, Steve Earle certainly has me over a barrel on this one. I must have missed the letter where he challenges me to come up with some facts to prove my claims that Fox “News” tells lies. While my opinion of Fox is that they attempt to pass off opinion as news, I might well have said that. It’s just that I don’t remember doing so. I am not trying to weave or dodge this issue, so if you would be so kind, would you refresh my memory. I don’t need dates, just what it was that I said that lead you to believe that I said Fox lied. Then if you could restate your challenge, I would be happy to back it up. If what you are talking about is my comparing Fox to the Globe and the National Enquirer, then you are mistaken, because what I said was that they compete for the most outlandish stories. Outlandish does not mean a story isn’t true necessarily, just that it is out of the main stream. And it was meant as a joke. If you took offense at that I am truly sorry. I thought that someone that spends so much time calling people names, as you do, would have skin a little thicker than that. Now, I have to ask you Steve, are you not “rising to the bait” of my last challenge because you realized that I have never attacked you, personally, in any way? Bombastically or otherwise. I

would hate to think that you would try to avoid the spot light or slip away from something you can’t support. As to my gullibility, and not checking my facts, I honestly don’t have a clue as to what you mean. Just to make sure there is full disclosure here, I have to say that I haven’t been subjected to Fox “News” for more than a couple of minutes in the last four years. (Four years ago I had a hospital room mate who played Fox for two straight days at full volume; turns out he was comatose for most of that time) . I only recently started watching MS-NBC (on 10/27/10) and only then to get away from those annoying political ads and I stumbled across Morning Joe, and saw that Mika Brzezinski was on, I have liked her since I saw her in my native Connecticut. I don’t know what Move or the Huffington Post even are, although I have heard others talking about them. And to be on the safe side, I never listen to NPR, but I have a brother who listens to nothing else. So I guess I get all my opinions from “whatever”. One last thing Steve, is this a great country or what? Here we are pretty much polar opposites politically and we have some of the same hero’s, my list is slightly longer but all the ones you mentioned are on it. Marty Valengavich. Belmont

Those who don’t know Bob Kingsbury will grow to admire him To the editor, Having been introduced to Bob Kingsbury a number of years a go, I have grown to not only admire the man but have a deep respect for his wisdom and love he has for our country and a keen understanding of the Constitution of the United States and our own state Constitution. We are fortunate indeed to have him going to Concord as a representative. He is an

scholar who never hesitates to stand up for what is right. Those who voted for him will find these attributes to be a valuable asset to have in Concord, and will be grateful they cast their vote for one who represents correct principles. Those who did not vote for Bob, if they keep their eyes opened will grow also to admire his character. Gene F. Danforth

People who live in this Gilford neighborhood seem to love the new stop signs on Ridgewood Avenue but some drivers who use the road  as a throughway would like to see them removed. (Laconia Daily Sun photo/Gail Ober)

STOP SIGNS from page one for the the first time ever.” The request to remove the stop signs was led by Joe Polovick who lives on Countryside Drive, on the top of Sleeper Hill. Residents of that part of town typically use Ridgewood as a bridge between Gilford Avenue and Sleeper Hill Road or Morrill Street. Polovick said he would prefer to see the speed dropped from 30 miles per hour to 25 and cited the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices used by the N.H. Department of Transportation as a guide that says stop signs should not be used for speed control. This was Polovick’s third trip to see the selectmen about the stop signs that were installed at the corner of Ridgewood Avenue and Sunset Drive after the street was rebuilt about six weeks ago. Polovick, and many others who use those back roads as a “Lakeport Bypass,” say the stops signs are an inconvenience and would be unnecessary if the speed limits were lowered. Ernest Goodwin has lived on the corner of Sleeper Hill Road and Morrill Street for 23 years and said he supports the new stop signs. Goodwin said he has spent the past few days working outside his home and told selectmen he had noticed a reduction of traffic since the stop signs were installed. He also said that “people from Ridgewood are coming slower.” “I’m all for it,” he continued, saying that although it can be noisier living next to a stop sign because of traffic stopping and starting up again, he thinks safety of the many children that live on the street is more important. “It’s sad someone would want to petition to get rid of a stop sign because it’s an inconvenience,” he said. “Life’s full of inconveniences.”

“Stopping would only add a few seconds to someone’s day,” said Carolyn Ellingson who also spoke in favor of keeping the stop signs. After everyone who wanted to speak spoke, Selectman’s Chair Kevin Hayes asked the other two members what they wanted to do. Selectman Gus Benevides first wanted to know if there had been any traffic studies done in recent years. “This sounds like the most dangerous road in Gilford.” he said. Geoff Ruggles, Gilford’s finance director who also lives in the neighborhood, said he recalled one being done about 15 years ago that indicated people traveled on average 10 miles an hour more than the speed limit. Ruggles, who coined the term “Lakeport Bypass” said ever since the new traffic lights went up on Union Avenue in Laconia, local people have been using the Stark Street/Sleeper Hill/Ridgewood Avenue corridor as a way to avoid them. He said he also recalled at least two formal complaints regarding excessive speed in that general neighborhood. Others also said that during Motorcycle Week, the bikers who are familiar with the route use the shortcut as well. “Joe, I’m sorry,” Benevides began, addressing Polovick directly. “I’m always going to err on the sign of caution.” “I think it’s unfortunate the town didn’t address this years ago,” he said. Polovick said he agreed that there was a speed problem but again said he didn’t think the proper solution was a three-way stop. Though it didn’t come to a formal vote, Hayes said there was no will on the part of selectmen to remove the stop signs.

Police want extra $74,000 to use when Hells Angels’ ‘World Run’ is in town By Michael Kitch LACONIA — Police Chief Mike Moyer anticipates that the presence of law enforcement during the Hells Angels World Run, which will be held here during the last four days of July 2011, will cost $73,728, more than 25-percent less than the $100,000 spent to staff the same gathering in 2003. The “World Run” is a kind of convention that attracts members of motorcycle club from around the globe. In a memorandum to City Manager Eileen Cabanel outlining the department’s budget request, Moyer explained that in scheduling for the event “I have made major cut backs in our enforcement.” He noted that

in 2003 all of the expenses were met with funding from the federal government and stressed that “we are aggressively seeking all options to get this federally funded.” Moyer said yesterday that the bulk of the expenses would be applied to the cost of compensating officers for over-time and supplementing the local department with personnel from other departments. He said that in 2003 several federal law enforcement agencies assigned personnel to Laconia and anticipated that they would do so again. Likewise, the Belknap County Sheriff’s Department will assist in policing the event. Moyer said that if federal funds are not forthcoming, he will “scale back” the oper-

ation without compromising the capacity of the department to ensure public safety. He said that the department has been engaged in an ongoing dialogue with representatives of the Hells Angels and expects the World Run “will be just as peaceful as it was 2003.” Then a small fight outside a Lake Street restaurant in Gilford was the only incident requiring a response by police. Each year the Hells Angels hold a World Run, which is billed as a business meeting, attended by two representatives from each of the more than 25 chapters of the international motorcycle club. As many as 2,000 Hells Angels are expected for the event, which will be headquartered at the clubhouse on Fillmore Avenue, off White Oaks Road,

high above Weirs Beach. Ed Shaughnessy, senior member of the New Hampshire Nomads chapter, has discussed the event with city officials, including the police and City Manager Eileen Cabanel. In 2003, the club was granted an assembly permit for a large tent on the Fillmore Road site as well as permits for a fireworks display and outdoor loudspeakers. On the eve of the World Run in 2003, the Police Station was ringed by dump trucks and heavy equipment from the Department of Public Works, all of which were hastily removed when they caught the attention of the press. Moyer stressed that he was not contemplating any such security measures for next year.

TAX CAPS from page one outspoken opponent of the tax cap when it was originally proposed, said that “the clear import of the Supreme Court’s decision is that the defect in the Manchester tax cap is fatal for the entire tax cap provision of the city charter. The council must address the legality of our tax cap.” On the heels of the opinion, Senator Peter Bragdon (R-Milford), the Republican leader of the New Hampshire Senate who will become its president in January, announced that the Senate Republicans, who hold 19 of the 24 seats, will file legislation “to resolve the conflict between municipal tax/spending caps and state law.” Last year, while the litigation wended its way through the courts, Republican lawmakers introduced several bills to authorize municipal tax caps, all of which were thwarted by the Democratic majorities in the House and Senate. Before Manchester voters endorsed the tax cap a group of petitioners, acting under the auspices of Keep Manchester Moving, a progressive organization, challenged it. They drew heavily on a decision by Justice Diane Nicolosi of Merrimack County Superior Court, who in March 2009 ruled that a similar tax cap proposed in Concord was contrary to state law. In that case, the city claimed that the proposed tax cap ran afoul of the “preemption doctrine,” which holds that if the state has enacted a “detailed and

comprehensive” statute governing a particular subject, it intends to preempt that subject by wielding exclusive authority over it. Concord argued that since the Legislature enacted a statute governing the municipal budget process (RSA 49-C:23) a tax cap would infringe on the authority of the Legislature. Nicolosi agreed, finding that “the legislature has not authorized municipalities to regulate the process.” Attorney Bob Backus, representing the petitioners, mounted the same argument against the Manchester tax cap before the Supreme Court. In addition, he argued that a tax cap interferes with the duty of the mayor to present a budget based on the financial needs of the city and impairs the authority and duty of the board of mayor and aldermen to adopt a budget. Finally, the petitioners contended that a tax cap exceeded the scope of authority granted to municipalities by the Legislature. By contrast, the New Hampshire Advantage Coalition insisted that RSA 49-C:23 provides “a basic structural form for a city to charter to follow” without prohibiting the inclusion of a tax or spending cap in a municipal charter. A tax cap, the coalition, described “is simply a change to the structure and formation of the citys annual budget procedure.” In addition to addressing the issue of preemption, the justices also chose

to consider whether requiring a twothirds majority to override the tax cap conflicts with the statute (RSA 49-C:12, I) governing the conduct of meetings in cities with a mayor and board of aldermen or city council. The New Hampshire Taxpayers

Coalition held that he provision for an override ensured that a tax cap would not impair the authority of the mayor and aldermen to adopt a budget. But, the petitioners countered that by statute (RSA 49-C:12, I) all issues, includsee next page

LHS principal considers ‘The Many Faces of Facebook’ a must see program LACONIA — Laconia High School Principal Steve Beals said he isn’t one to insist that every event the district hosts be mandatory for students and staff. However, he’s making an exception for an upcoming presentation, “The Many Faces of Facebook,” which he said is going to be available for every high school student and seen by every member of the school’s staff. He feels just as strongly that any parent of a child who participates in social networking should attend the community presentation, which will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 22 at Laconia Middle School. “This is one I really believe people should come to – there is so much more information on Facebook than most parents realize,” Beals said. The presentation will be delivered by Jennifer Frank, an investigator with Plymouth State University’s police department. Beals saw Frank’s presentation at a conference over the summer and decided that it was something the rest of his school should see. He found funding within the school’s budget for Frank to give two presentations to students during the school day. Project E.X.T.R.A.! paid for an afternoon presentation for staff and faculty and the Laconia Public Library is paying for Frank to give the evening’s community presentation. Beals said “The Many Faces of Facebook” will last for about an hour and 15 minutes, including a question-and-answer session. Some parents might not even be from preceding page

ing budgets, coming before a board of mayor and aldermen must be decided by a simple majority vote and that the same statute “disallows super-majority votes.” The justices agreed that boards conduct business by simple majority votes and noted that this conclusion is supported by other statutes requiring two-majorities in specific instances, among them supplemental appropriations for purposes not incuded in the budget and overriding a mayoral veto. Consequently, the court found that the tax cap, by requiring a two-thirds majority for an override, conflicts with state law and in preempted by statute governing the municipal budget process (RSA 49-C:23) as well as the statute requiring that business be conducted by simple majority vote.

aware that their children have an active online life. Beals, though, isn’t able to ignore the fact that 80-percent of his students have a cell phone they can text with and that he estimated 70-percent of the student body has a Facebook page they regularly use. Many of those students will have several hundred Facebook “friends” who can access whatever photos or information the students post. Although all that communication happens online, Beals said it can have serious implications in real life. It would be rare, he said, for a week to go by where he doesn’t deal with a behavior issue at the high school that was started or exacerbated by something said or posted online. “That’s why I thought the issue was so timely,” said Beals. Bullying is one concern, predators are another, said Beals. Through the presentation, he learned that those with bad intent and advanced cyber skills can extract a shocking amount of information from social networking sites. Beals said the presentation teaches how to “be aware how vulnerable you can be when you put information on the web.” “That’s what scares me,” Beals said about personal information posted innocently online. “That’s why I’m saying to parents this is important... If a family has a child that has Facebook or participates regularly in social websites, this would be very helpful.” — Adam Drapcho did not specifically address challenges that were raised in other areas. Backus said that even if a city were to replace the super-majority requirement in its tax cap it would remain open to future challenges on other grounds. Because Laconia’s council has six members the two-thirds vote requirement takes a possible tie-breaking vote by the mayor out of play. Votes from four of the six councilors are needed to form a super-majority. If a simple majority is all that is required to override a tax cap, the mayor could join three councilors in forming that majority. Zandra Rice-Hawkins of Granite State Progress, a progressive advocacy group, said that her organization will mount a lobbying effort against legislation that would enable municipalities to adopt tax caps.

Young couple heading into first holiday season as captains of Salvation Army BY ADAM DRAPCHO THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Captains Steve and Sally Warren have been at their post, leading the Laconia Salvation Army, since July. However, with the many activities over the course of the next month and a half, they could be forgiven if they feel as though their work is just beginning. The Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons are when vulnerable families often find their needs to be most acute, and this year is shaping up to be no exception to that rule. It’s also the time of year when the Salvation Army schedules its biggest fundraisers to generate the revenue needed to run the much-needed relief programs. The Warrens, each 28 years old and parents of an 18-month-old boy, have been married since 2003 and after a few years in civilian careers, they said they felt called to join the ranks of the Salvation Army, an organization that had already played a large role in each of their lives. The Salvation Army is an organization that requires its officers, if married, for both of the spouses to become officers. Steve explained that the rule is justified because the workload and time commitment would ruin relationships otherwise, and that the Salvation Army’s practice of reassigning officers to new posts every five to seven years would make a career out-

side of the religious organization challenging for the spouse. It’s a lifestyle that Sally knows well, having grown up as the child of Salvation Army officers. She moved a lot during her youth and spent her middle and high school years in Burlington, Vt. Steve, who grew up in Manchester, got to know the the organization through his local Salvation Army’s “Kids’ Cafe,” in which they offered a warm meal and programs for local young people. “I was there literally every night, escaping a home life that was not so good,” Steve said. “It developed into a great relationship from there.” Steve and Sally met while they were both working as counselors at Camp Sebago, a summer camp the Salvation Army runs in Maine. Their first assignment was in Derry, where they served from 2007 until coming to Laconia. The Salvation Army is a religious organization with its roots in the Methodist tradition. The Warrens’ primary responsibility is leading the church, which meets inside the Salvation Army building on Union Avenue in Laconia. However, the couple has many other responsibilities that reflect the organization’s commitment to community service.

Carnival CEO Gerry Cahill said the challenges on the cruise ship are unlike any others his company has faced in its 35-year history. “The conditions on the ship have been challenging and we are very, very sorry for the discomfort and the inconvenience that our guests have had to deal with in the past several days,” Cahill said at a news conference in San Diego. “They signed up for a great cruise vacation and obviously that is not what they received.” Gina Calzada, 43, of Henderson, Nev., said her diabetic sister, Vicky, called her Wednesday morning on her cell phone and started sobbing. She said she has not been able to take her

on 7-year-old Mercey Smeltzer and ensuring she is cared for, and said the loss of Mason at such a young age was unbearable. “His chubby little cheeks and his big smiles will remain in our hearts forever,” she said. Harris described her sister as a devoted mother. “We will miss her beautiful smile, the sound of her laugh and her shiny black hair,” she said. insulin for her diabetes because she is not eating enough. She told Calzada all that she had eaten was some bread, cucumbers and lettuce. “I told her where are the Pop Tarts and the Spam? I thought they brought in 70,000 pounds of supplies,” Calzada said. “She said I haven’t seen that.” Alvarez and her husband saved up for months to take the cruise to celebrate their wedding anniversary of more than 20 years and her 48th birthday, which was on Nov. 4. They had not been able to take a vacation for years because Alvarez was caring for their aging mother, who died in June. She said it stinks of rotten food and smoke,” Calzada said. “It’s dark, and it’s cold.’”

from preceding page pantry which last year provided baskets of foods to 631 families. The Salvation Army also runs the Carey House, one of the few homeless shelters in New Hampshire which can accept families and the only shelter in Belknap County. The Warrens plan to re-open a Salvation Army thrift store in the city and plan to start a family-building program. In the months that they’ve been in Laconia, they said they’ve begun to get to know a community that is experiencing some troubling transitions. Sally noted that many storefronts in downtown and surrounding areas are shuttered, and with them went local employment opportunities. “It seems a lot of people are looking for work,” she said, and they’re forced to look further from home than they’d like, especially those with limited access to transportation. For a starker view of the community, they only have to look next door, at the Carey House, which has capacity for three families, eight men and six

women. Nearly every bed is filled, nealy every night of the year. In just the time since the Warrens have arrived, Steve said the Carey House has counted 400 times they’ve had to say “no” to someone looking for shelter. Soon the Carey House will open a new wing, offering space for six more men. “We know as soon as we open that wing, it will be filled immediately – we have seen the homeless in this community as a great need,” said Steve. The Laconia Salvation Army runs all of its programs within an operating budget of about $400,000, said Steve. While there is some state funding that helps pay for the Carey House, he said most of their revenues come from local donors who drop a few coins – or better, a few bills – into the red kettles which will very soon be placed throughout the area. Another big fundraiser for the organization is the annual Turkey Plunge, which will occur this year on Saturday, Nov. 20. The event, which has become a see next page

In Laconia to meet with GOP faithful, Chandler says he won’t make deal with Democrats to win race for House Speaker By Michael Kitch LACONIA — Addressing the Belknap County Republican Committee last evening, Rep. Gene Chandler of Bartlett, one of four candidates vying to lead the new Republican super-majority in the New Hampshire House of Representatives, told party members that “the Speaker’s race has gotten very contentious” and vowed “I will not stoop to that level.” Chandler did not elaborate. But, many gathered in the back room of the Shang-Hai Restaurant caught his allusion to insinuations that appeared yesterday on Granite Grok, the conservative blog hosted by Skip Murphy of Gilford, that if Chandler failed to corral enough votes in the Republican caucus, he would turn to the Democrats to win the speakership. Both Republican and Democratic members of the House will nominate a candidate for Speaker, who will be their party leader. There are 302 Republicans and 98 Democrats. The Speaker is elected by all 400 House members. Chandler’s chief rival is Rep. Bill O’Brien, an attorney from Mont Vernon beginning his third term in the House. O’Brien chairs the GOP platform committee and, more significantly, serves as co-chair of the House Republican Alliance, the conservative wing of the party caucus. He is running for speaker to fulfill “the promise of conservatism — freedom based on limited government, local control and individual liberty — because I have not seen Republican House leadership that has worked to achieve these goals and I don’t see the prospect of anyone else stepping forward to provide it.” A veteran legislator, Chandler served as Speaker from 2001 to 2004, but did not seek a third term when his failure to report $64,000 in gifts from “Friends of Gene Chandler,” which staged an annual “Old Fashioned Corn Roast,” triggered an investigation. Although the ethics committee recommended expulsion, the House chose to censure him and his successor restored him to a place in leadership. The other candidates, Representatives John Reagan of Deerfield and Susan Emerson of Rindge, are both considered dark horses. The insinuations about Chandler originated with a blog post by pundit James Pindell, who speculated that since Chandler had stressed his abil-

ity to work with Democrats, they could throw their 98 votes to him, which with 103 of the 298 Republicans would give him a majority of 400 House members. O’Brien, on the other hand, Pindell said must win his majority within the GOP caucus. Pindell went on to quote Teri Norelli, the Democratic leader in the House, who coyly remarked that she doubted either O’Brien or Chandler had enough Republican support to become Speaker. Early yesterday morning Tim Condon, an attorney active in the Republican Liberty Caucus, posted Pindell’s speculations on Granite Grok. And shortly after 1 p.m. posted his own musings — “The plot THICKENS! Is Chandler plotting with the Democrats to seize the Speakership?” According to Condon, O’Brien proposed that all candidates for Speaker pledge not to oppose the choice of the Republican caucus, but Chandler refused to agree. Condon quoted a GOP lawmaker as saying “Gene Chandler will never promote an elected leader unless that person is devoted head-totoe to Gene Chandler first, before either the Caucus or Republican principles in general.” Condon closed by remarking “uh oh. Houston Republicans, we have a problem.” At the same time, Representative Bob Mead of Mont Vernon, a staunch supporter of O’Brien, circulated Pindell’s remarks in an e-mail, to fellow Republicans. He urged them to withdraw their support from any candidate other than O’Brien and reminded them “understand that your support would be thrown in with the Democrats in order to elect Gene Chandler as their Republican Speaker, despite who the Republican caucus elects.” By mid-afternoon, Chandler was dousing the fire in an interview with the N.H. Union-Leader, the states largest newspaper. Seeking to scotch any speculation that he would court Democrats, he declared “I’m running in the Republican caucus to be the Republican nominee for Speaker. It’s as simple as that. I’m not running for any other position or for any other party.” Last night he assured Beknap County Republicans that all four candidates for Speaker pledged to support the choice of the GOP caucus. “We assured (party chairman John H.) Sununu of that on Monday,” he said. The House Repubican caucus will meet on Thursday November 18 to choose its nomineee for Speaker.

We have also witnessed a community that is so willing to rally and do what needs to be done so we can all come out of this better.”

Gilford High students to premier ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ this weekend GILFORD — Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” will be soaring on to the stage at Gilford High School over the next two weekends. This will be the first time this classic; fan favorite musical will be presented at Gilford High School. After hosting heavily attended auditions in early September, Director Matt Demko, Vocal Director Denise Sanborn, and Choreographer Sarah Sedgley selected a cast of over 25 talented students and began rehearsals right away. Vocal Director Sanborn has put the cast through their vocal paces with classic music and lyrics written by Lloyd Webber and Rice. Choreographer Sedgley will be providing toe tapping choreography for the great tunes including a Calypso song (Benjamin Calypso), a 1960’s Rock Song (Go, Go Go Joseph) and an Elvis inspired dance number (Song of The King). Heading up the technical side of things will be long time technical director Scott Piddington who leads a wonderful crew of GHS students. Tammy Denver will provide the wonderful costumes and Lyvie Beyrent will direct an orchestra of high school students and local musicians. Featured in the title role of Joseph will be GHS junior Zack Tousignant with Katy Krauss, Sam

Drouin, and Grace McLaughlin as the three narrators. Featured roles will be played by Josh Ritson (The Pharaoh), Corwin Leber (Jacob), Cameron Graaskamp (Potipher), with Nick Denver (Simeon), Parker Ayer (Reuben), and Roland Dubois (Judah). The ensemble is comprised of 25 talented GHS students ranging from 9th to 12th grade. The company is very excited to present this classic musical. “I enjoy producing and directing all types of musicals,” said Demko. “We had a lot of success with last year’s production of ‘Anything Goes’. We wanted to go in a different direction with this year’s musical and do a ‘Pop Opera’. This musical is comprised of 30 songs that tell the story and each song is in a different music type. We have songs that range from standard musical theater to 1960’s rock to Elvis to country western to calypso to French cabaret. We hope there will be something for all types of audience members.” Show dates will be Friday and Saturday November 12-13 at 7 p.m. and Friday and Saturday November 19-20 at the same time. All performances will take place at the GHS Auditorium. Tickets will be $7 for adults and $5 for students and senior citizens and can be purchased at the Gilford Village Store and Greenlaw’s Music.

By Holiday Mathis tain people are known to be a bad influence on you, and now is a good time to steer clear of them. Fill up your schedule with choice appointments that you can actually look forward to keeping. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When people want to put you to work, you see the gift in it. Status players will be attracted to what you offer. Work with the one who can put your talent in the best possible light. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The old rules still apply. You may see people bending and breaking them around you, but you’ll benefit by staying in line with the traditions that have kept things running smoothly for many years. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Making amends isn’t something you reserve for religious holidays or 12-step programs. When you think you could have behaved better, you say “sorry” and move on. This habit will bring you success. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll be working with a diverse team. Each person has unique gifts to bring to the table. You have a way of making others feel comfortable enough to do their very best. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 11). Your ability to dream in vivid detail will help you to make this a wonderful year. You imagine the way you want relationships to be, and one will improve drastically this month. A new connection in December brings good fortune. An important job takes more time than anticipated, and you do exceedingly well. Gemini and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 44, 18 and 52.

by Darby Conley

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You don’t have to be strong all the time. When you forget to believe in yourself, other people will remind you. They are so convinced you can succeed that you can’t help but follow suit. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You don’t expect your loved ones to be perfect. You accept them the way they are, which makes you the go-to companion when they are facing challenges and also when it’s time to have fun. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will be dealing with intricate and complex personalities. Pay attention and you’ll find it easy to get along. If anyone can find a solution that pleases everyone involved, you can. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your plate is full. What’s going on for you will require your undivided attention. There’s no time to go poking around in other people’s business. That will only lead to further distraction. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Each person has his or her own way of getting into a successful groove. Paradoxically, you feel more present in the “now” moment when it’s a moment you planned out well in advance. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You need to know what you are looking for in a friend in order to attract the right one for you. Think about the qualities and values you would like a companion of yours to possess. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ve been looking at a problem your group is faced with, and you’ve seen and understood the issue in a way that’s different from that of any other person. Your solution is excellent, but no one will know unless you speak up. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Cer-

––––––– ALMANAC –––––––


Today is Thursday, Nov. 11, the 315th day of 2010. There are 50 days left in the year. This is Veterans Day in the U.S., Remembrance Day in Canada. Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 11, 1918, fighting in World War I came to an end with the signing of an armistice between the Allies and Germany. On this date: In 1620, 41 Pilgrims aboard the Mayflower, anchored off Massachusetts, signed a compact calling for a “body politick.” In 1889, Washington became the 42nd state. In 1909, President William Howard Taft accepted the recommendation of a joint Army-Navy board that Pearl Harbor in the Hawaiian Islands be made the principal U.S. naval station in the Pacific. In 1921, the remains of an unidentified American service member were interred in the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery in a ceremony presided over by President Warren G. Harding. In 1960, South Vietnamese President Ngo Dinh Diem survived a coup attempt by army rebels. (However, he was overthrown and killed in 1963.) In 1966, Gemini 12 blasted off from Cape Kennedy with astronauts James A. Lovell and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin Jr. aboard. In 1983, President Ronald Reagan became the first U.S. chief executive to address the Diet, Japan’s national legislature. In 1990, Stormie Jones, the world’s first heart-liver transplant recipient, died at a Pittsburgh hospital at age 13. One year ago: For the first time since World War I, the leaders of Germany and France held a joint ceremony to commemorate the end of the conflict, saying it was time to celebrate their countries’ reconciliation and friendship. Today’s Birthdays: Dancer-choreographer Nicholas Royce is 85. Comedian Jonathan Winters is 85. Jazz singer-musician Mose Allison is 83. Author Carlos Fuentes is 82. Actress Bibi Andersson is 75. Country singer Narvel Felts is 72. Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) is 70. Rock singer-musician Vince Martell (Vanilla Fudge) is 65. The president of Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega, is 65. Golfer Fuzzy Zoeller is 59. Pop singermusician Paul Cowsill (The Cowsills) is 58. Rock singer-musician Andy Partridge (XTC) is 57. Singer Marshall Crenshaw is 57. Rock singer Dave Alvin is 55.

LACONIA — Local business professionals interested in meeting with LHS NH Scholars at a Meet & Greet are requested to R.S.V.P. by November 22. More than 60 Laconia High School students are committed to a rigorous college preparatory course of study through participation in the NH Scholars program, a federally funded program developed and administered through a partnership between the NH College and University Council, the NH Forum on the Future, the NH Department of Education, and the National State Scholars Initiative Network. The State Scholars Core Course of Study is basic to acceptance at most four-year colleges and recommended for students pursuing two-year degrees and certificate programs. It is also recommended by employers for most, if not all, potential employees entering the workplace upon graduation from high school. Research shows a strong positive correlation between the academic rigor of a student’s high

school course of study and the completion of a postsecondary program of study. LHS is proud to offer this statewide program to their students, who are recognized for their commitment to their courses on their diploma and last year at the State House at a program with Governor Lynch. Another vital piece of the program is the connection to local business leaders, who can provide mentorship and encouragement to the students. The LHS Guidance Department invites all local business professionals to a Meet & Greet with the LHS NH Scholar students in the LHS library at 7:30 a.m. on Friday, December 3. Stop by and meet the students, tell them about your education, career, and career path. Bring business cards and a colleague. Morning refreshments will be served. Please R.S.V.P. by November 22 to or call Holly Vieten at 524-3350.

LACONIA — St. Andre Bessette Parish will host a Nutcracker Festival at 291 Union Ave. on Friday, Nov. 12 (5 to 8 p.m.) and Saturday, Nov. 13 (9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.).

Dear Annie: Years back, Ann Landers printed a poem my father wrote for his own newspaper column. With November 11th approaching, I thought you might like to print it again. -- Randy Vaincourt Dear Randy: With pleasure, in honor of our veterans. “Just a Common Soldier” by A. Lawrence Vaincourt He was getting old and paunchy and his hair was falling fast, And he sat around the Legion, telling stories of the past. Of a war that he had fought in and the deeds that he had done, In his exploits with his buddies; they were heroes, every one. And tho’ sometimes, to his neighbors, his tales became a joke, All his Legion buddies listened, for they knew whereof he spoke. But we’ll hear his tales no longer for old Bill has passed away, And the world’s a little poorer, for a soldier died today. He will not be mourned by many, just his children and his wife, For he lived an ordinary and quite uneventful life. Held a job and raised a family, quietly going his own way, And the world won’t note his passing, though a soldier died today. If we cannot do him honor while he’s here to hear the praise, Then at least let’s give him homage at the ending of his days. Perhaps just a simple headline in a paper that would say, Our country is in mourning, for a soldier died today.

Dear Annie: My wife and I were childhood sweethearts, and we have been happily married for 30 years. We’ve been together most of our lives except for a brief time in our late teens, when she left me for another guy. Here’s the problem. She still keeps some photos and memorabilia from that relationship and, on occasion, communicates with this guy via e-mail. This brings back bad memories and often makes me feel jealous and insecure. My wife says, “After almost 35 years, you should be over it.” Is she right? -- Still Jealous After All These Years Dear Jealous: You can’t help how you feel, but you can certainly put a lid on your reactions. Unless your wife is poring over these old photographs and memorabilia, ignore them. They are part of who she is and are no threat to you as long as she doesn’t shove them in your face. They should be put away somewhere. Keeping in touch with an old boyfriend is only worrisome if she hides the e-mails from you, sends flirtatious and suggestive messages, confides personal marital intimacies to him or tries to meet him secretly. Otherwise, please trust your wife to be faithful to you. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Uncomfortable in Florida,” who met a woman who stuttered. As a speech-language pathologist who has treated both adults and children, I agree with your recommendation to not complete the word for the person. It can be uncomfortable to see a person suffer when speaking, but patience is important. It would have been more embarrassing for the woman who stuttered to have had the word completed for her. I would also like to recommend that those interested contact the American Speech-Language Hearing Association ( for additional information or call their Action Center at 1-800-638-8255. -- Daily Reader Dear Reader: Thank you for the excellent referral.

Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column. Please e-mail your questions to:, or write to: Annie’s Mailbox, c/o Creators Syndicate, 5777 W. Century Blvd., Ste. 700, Los Angeles, CA 90045.
