Gilford woman & her dog were shot to death


Woman walks through wall of flames to escape Gilford home

AG’s office assures residents murder was not a random act & there’s no community-wide danger By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

GILFORD — Authorities confirmed that the Gilford woman, whose body was found in her home on Country Club Road late Monday afternoon, died at the hand of a murderer from multiple gunshots. In a statement released yesterday, New Hampshire Attorney General Michael

Delaney announced that an autopsy performed by Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Thomas Andrew on Wednesday confirmed that Roberta Miller, 54, was the victim of homicide. He added that in the course of the investigation the body of Miller’s dog, which had also been shot to death, was found in her home. Although Delaney said the autopsy was

complete, he made no mention of when Miller was killed. Town Administrator Scott Dunn said yesterday that Assistant Attorney General Ben Agati assured him yesterday that Miller’s death was not a random act and there was no reason for neighbors and residents to fear for their safety.

GILFORD — A woman apparently suffered significant burns but was able to escape her home in dramatic fashion as it burned around her, shortly after noon yesterday. The first Fire Department Crew responding to 72 Varney Point Road called for a third alarm response to the fire, based upon the column of smoke they saw while approaching the scene. Crews from eight area fire departments assisted Gilford. The one story home, located just north of the town beach, was severely damaged to the point where it is no longer habitable. Radiant heat from the fire also damaged a nearby residence. The woman, whom the Fire Department did not identify, was treated by paramedics for burns. She was transported to Lakes see firE page 8

GUSTAVIA, St. Barts (AP) — Eugenie Blanchard, a nun who was considered the world’s oldest person, died in the French Caribbean island of St. Barts on Thursday. She was 114. Blanchard, who friends called “Sweets” because of her kindness, died at Bruyn Hospital, where she had lived in the geriatric ward since 1980, said hospital director Pierre Nuty. Her death leaves Eunice G. Sanborn of Jacksonville, Texas, as the world’s oldest person, according to two organizations that monitor that status. Blanchard’s cousin Armelle Blanchard told The Associated Press that while her relative could no longer talk, she had seemed to be in relatively good health. “When you talked to her, she would smile,” she said. “We don’t know if she understood us.” Blanchard was born in St. Barts on Feb. 16, 1896, and lived much of her life in a convent in the Dutch Caribbean island of Curacao before returning home in the 1950s. She was the last survivor of a family of 13 brothers and sisters. Blanchard worked hard from an early age, her cousin recalled. “At that time, life was very hard in St. Barts,” she said. “She tended the garden and took care of the animals.”

Death toll from Indonesian volcano climbs to 56 MOUNT MERAPI, Indonesia (AP) — A deadly surge of blistering gases cascaded down the slopes of Indonesia’s most volatile volcano Friday, torching houses in one mountainside village and triggering a chaotic midnight evacuation. At least 12 people were killed in the inferno and 50 others injured. Men with ash-covered faces streamed down Mount Merapi on motorcycles and women and crying children packed into trucks, as officials announced over loudspeakers that they were again expanding the volcano’s “danger zone.” Even staff at the mountain’s main monitoring post were told to move farther from the glowing crater. Mount Merapi, which means “Fire Mountain,” has killed 56 people since

bursting back to life on Oct. 26. Though scientists earlier expressed hope dozens of big explosions in the last week would ease pressure building up behind a magma dome high up in the crater, eruptions Friday appeared to be intensifying. “We have no idea what to expect now,” said Surono, a state expert on volcanos, adding that he has never seen the needle on Merapi’s seismograph working with such intensity. Towering clouds of ash shot from the crater with a thunder-like roar on Thursday morning, sending soot 20,000 feet (6,000 meters) into the air and dusting towns up to 150 miles (250 kilometers) away. Just before midnight, Merapi unleashed a deadly surge of searing ash, gases and rock fragments. Known to experts as pyro-

clastic flows, such clouds race down the slopes at speeds of up to 60 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour). Though more than 75,000 people living along Merapi’s fertile slopes have been evacuated to crowded emergency shelters, many by force, others are reluctant to leave their precious livestock and homes. It is not clear how many people were in the village of Bronggang, nine miles (15 kilometers) from the crater, when the heat cloud hit. Waluyo Raharjo, a search and rescue official, was on the scene as at least 12 bodies were pulled from burned homes. Soldiers helped load the corpses into vehicles, delivering them to a hospital morgue. A 3-year-old girl was killed in the inferno, said Pangardi, a forensic expert at Sardjito hospital, where the wounded were being treated.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Victorious at the polls, congressional Republicans asserted their newfound political strength on Thursday, vowing to seek a quick $100 billion in federal spending cuts and force repeated votes on the repeal of President Barack Obama’s prized health care overhaul. At the White Houses, Obama said his administration was ready to work across party lines in a fresh attempt to “focus on the economy and jobs” as well as attack waste in government. In a show of bipartisanship, he invited top lawmakers to the White House at mid-month, and the nation’s

newly elected governors two weeks later. Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio, in line to become the new speaker of the House, brushed aside talk that the No. 1 GOP goal was to make sure Obama is defeated at the polls in 2012. “That’s Senator McConnell’s statement and his opinion,” he told ABC, referring to the party’s leader in the Senate and adding that his own goals included cutting spending and creating jobs. But tentative talk of compromise competed with rhetoric reminiscent of the justcompleted campaign. In a speech at the conservative Heri-

tage Foundation, Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell said the only way to achieve key party legislative goals such as ending government bailouts, cutting spending and repealing the health care law “is to put someone in the White House who won’t veto” them. “There’s just no getting around it,” he added. Obama has ruled out accepting repeal of the health care measure, and Senate Democrats responded quickly to McConnell. “What Sen. McConnell is really saying see GOP page 10

Coroner says Mont Vernon woman was alive for 32 machete & knife wounds

NASHUA (AP) — A woman hacked to death with a machete and knife in her home was alive for all 32 slash and stab wounds that split open her skull, sliced through bones and pierced organs, a medical examiner testified Thursday. Both sides in the murder trial of 18-year-old Steven Spader have rested. The defense called no witnesses, ending speculation Spader might take the stand. Jurors will begin deliberating Monday, after final arguments. They heard from 45 witnesses during the nine-day trial. Spader has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder, attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder and burglary and witness tampering. He was 17 years old when prosecutors say plotted the home invasion and rounded up the three other young men who accompanied him. During the home invasion, 42-year-old Kimberly Cates was killed, and her daughter was severely injured. Prosecutors said Thursday that Spader’s own words on paper and to witnesses are enough to convict him. In arguing against a defense motion to acquit Spader on all charges, prosecutor Jeffery Strelzin

Jeb Bradley in line to be majority leader when N.H. Senate meets in January

Milford’s Bragdon will be president CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire’s newly elected Republican senators voted unanimously Thursday to nominate Senate Republican Leader Peter Bragdon for president of the chamber. With 19 of the Senate’s 24 seats held by Republicans, Bragdon should win when the Legislature meets to organize and elect leaders on Dec. 1. The Republican senators haven’t developed an agenda but have agreed to focus on economic issues, said Bragdon, of Milford. “We plan to focus our attention as much as we can on those key issues that voters are concerned about,” he said. He said senators are free to file legislation on see SENATE page 11

said Spader’s letters to fellow inmate Chad Landry “are sufficient to prove every charge.” In those letters, which Spader described as “bedtime stories” to Landry, he detailed the many machete wounds he inflicted on Kimberly Cates, and what her body looked like afterward. Witnesses say he brought the machete down on 11-year-old Jaimie Cates, who survived. Spader’s description of Kimberly Cates’ body to Landry closely matched the testimony of state deputy chief medical examiner Jennie Duval. Spader wrote that he could see brain and an eye hanging out of its socket. Duval said she counted 32 wounds on Cates that were inflicted by at least two weapons. She said a machete could have made the long and deep cuts that cleaved bone and split Cates’ skull. One slash to the left side of her face broke the bone around her left eye socket, Duval said. Duval said Cates died from massive blood loss. Strelzin stood over Spader and glared at him as he asked Duval if Cates was alive for every wound that was inflicted. She said she was. Duval said one slash cut through Kimberly Cates’ upper arm bone and another broke her jaw. She said

Cates likely was trying to fend off the blows when her palm and forearm were slashed. Co-defendant Christopher Gribble of Brookline, who prosecutors say used a knife to hack at the victims, is set to go on trial in February. Now 12, Jaimie survived by pretending to be dead, then staggered, covered in blood, to a kitchen phone to call police. A doctor testified she would have died of a punctured lung if she had lost consciousness before summoning help. She was on the state’s list of witnesses but was not called to testify. She has not been seen at the courthouse throughout the trial. Blows that cut off portions of Jaimie’s left foot, split open her head and struck her face with enough force to break her jaw had to have come from a heavy and sharp weapon such as a machete, several doctors testified. Document analyst Alan Robillard of Vineyard Haven, Mass., testified that the letters to Landry and song lyrics found in another inmate’s cell were Spader’s handwriting. The song lyrics include the lines: “We went up in the room, Mommy is it you?, Mommy isn’t here, I slit her throat from ear to ear.”

Just 2 years from the ashes, an epic victory for GOP No matter how you spin it, what happened in the 2010 midterm election, across the country, and here in New Hampshire, was an epic event. November 2 was nothing less than “Resurrection Day” for a party that only two years ago was read its Last Rites. In the Granite State, not only the two congressional districts and the open U.S. Senate seat were handily picked up by Republicans, but the five-member governor’s council and both houses of the state legislature went Republican, with the GOP taking 19 out of 24 senate seats, and in the 400-member house, the party won an astounding 298 races. This included the defeat of such Democrat icons as Senators Martha Fuller Clarke and Maggie Hassam, and Executive Councilors Beverly Hollingsworth and Deborah Pignatelli — all from liberal-leaning districts. Only John Stephen, the young Republican gubernatorial candidate, went down to defeat. This is significant because it means voters had to make a calculated effort while going down the Republican column, to divert over to the Democrat side to make their mark for incumbent John Lynch, who was clearly vulnerable this year. Why? Stephen could not make the sale, for whatever reason. Phone bank people will tell you they saw it coming. Was it Stephen’s youth (read: not ready for prime time)? Was it style (urgent, intense, a little rough around the edges)? State party chair John Sununu blames the Lynch attack ads, which Stephen couldn’t seem to effectively counter, or otherwise neutralize. Having captured another term in the Corner Office, Governor John Lynch, the gentle soul, not known for his spunk and strong leadership skills, will now face a veto-proof legislature in both houses, so he will essentially be a captive of the Republican agenda. This, however, will likely not bother him much. We predict the ever smiling Mr. Lynch will ride out the next two years, the way he has for the past six: by cutting ribbons, entertaining visiting school children at the state house, and occasionally appearing on the Morning Buzz radio shows, while letting the legislature make all the hard decisions, decisions that include coming up with ways to put New Hampshire’s dreadful fiscal house in order, which collapsed on Lynch’s watch. S’ppose if you’re going to have a figure-head for governor, John Lynch is as good as any. Now, let’s fast rewind to winter 2009 to the ironies of ironies. Fresh from parties at the White House and news that Judd Gregg had accepted

a cabinet post in the Obama Administration (huh? We still haven’t figure that one out — late, very late midlife crisis, Judd?), Second District Democrat Congressman Paul Hodes, jubilantly announces his intention to seek the open seat. Judd later backs away from the White House offer, but announces his retirement. Today, that dream of a seat in the U.S. Senate is in shambles, with Hodes getting smoked by former Attorney General Kelly Ayotte to succeed Gregg by over a 105,000 vote margin. Ayotte had come out of a difficult primary unscarred, overcoming the stigma of being handpicked for the race by “Washington GOP power brokers,” with a united party behind her. If Obama is any friend to the luckless Hodes, there should be an ambassadorship to some exotic clime where he can serve cocktails to visiting dignitaries, while licking his wounds, before returning to New Hampshire to practice law. In a perverse way, I feel sorry for defeated Congresswoman Carol Shea Porter, bested in the Second District by Republican, former Manchester Mayor Frank Guinta. Shea Porter has essentially remained true to her liberal ideas during her four year tenure, even as political doom creeped up on her. “I’m a liberal. I campaigned for health care reform. I believe in it,” she’d tell Tea Partiers and others at her town hall meetings, as they raised a ruckus. Maybe the president will take care of her, too. There’s still something endearing about a politician who doesn’t weasel about her record, as her career goes up in smoke. In the Second District, Republican ex-Congressman Charlie Bass beat back a hard challenge from Concord lobbyist Ann McLane Kuster, who interestingly ran a strong campaign touting bigger government and higher taxes. Oops. Wrong year for that, although at times it looked like Bass would be in trouble. Running on a cut-spending, anti big government platform, many Republicans nevertheless were not enthused with the Bass candidacy since he was turned out office by Hodes in 2006. It’s because, always given to politically moderate tendencies, Bass still had forgotten he was supposed to be the Reagan fiscal conservative he first ran as, back in 1994. Now, his defeat and come-back appears to have made him a true believer again. Hope it sticks this time.

LETTERS People are afraid and frustrated and when this happens . . . To the editor, In a bad economy with a slow recovery, these election results are no surprise. People are afraid and frustrated, and when this happen, they turn their rage onto people already in office. It’s hard to win reelection in bad times. The problem with this is that the cure may be worse than the disease. Decisions driven by emotion are often not good ones. History has many accounts of bad economies followed by the rise in power of unsavory people who led their nations to destruction. The real winner of this election is corporate America, especially the defense industry, the health industry and the insurance companies. While there are many fine people in the Republican party, the party itself tends to attract the kind of people who write nasty letters to the editor – name-callers, bigots, anti-intellectuals and those prone to violence. When Democrats are in office, I have

some hope and expectations that we can move forward as a society. However, I have been disappointed that these wars of choice we are engaged in have not ended and that the health care bill was not stronger. Now with the Republicans back in power, I will no longer be disappointed because I have no expectations. This really hit me when Newt Gingrich recently said that the Republicans should cooperate with the Democrats but never compromise and when Mitch McConnell said that Democrats must now go along with whatever the Republicans want to do. In other words, it’s our way or the highway. I seriously doubt that the Republicans can bring peace and prosperity but good luck to them. I don’t see how a party that lacks ideals, soul and even a conscience can pull that off but I don’t mind being surprised. Leo R. Sandy New Hampton

This is American buddy, feel free to believe whatever you want To the editor, My-oh-my but Steve Earle is in a snit, eh? First, Steve, I don’t, and wouldn’t if I could, have my letters printed on any certain day. I send them and the wonderful editors of this fantastic paper print them when they see fit to do so. I have to thank you, Steve, for the best laugh I’ve had in a long time, I can always use a good laugh. Since most of your letter has nothing to do with me I will only comment on that part of it that does. I would now like to see you give one example of my “bombastic” slurs and insults against you. If you mean when I commented on someone else saying that the tea party might have more followers if they were more civil, you certainly put me in my place by accusing me of wearing a chicken suit to a tea party rally, and several other nonsensical acts. Or

maybe when you accused me of “watching” you when you delivered a letter to this great paper. I did comment that I didn’t want you to think I was stalking anyone, how “bombastic” of me. Now as to the nonsense of the president using the race card debate we had going on there for a while. You see, Steve, civilized people can agree to disagree on certain matters (oops, there’s that offensive, bombastic word again, those pesky “civil” people). I really believe that Martin Luther King, Jr. had a huge role in getting, um, civil rights laws passed and that mentioning him would have been the prudent way to go. This is America buddy and you are free to believe whatever you want, and Steve, I would fight to the death for your right to do so. Marty Valengavich Belmont

Democrats can’t lock the doors, the people now have the keys To the editor, Goodbye Paul and Carol. Good riddance to both of you. Too bad Jeanne isn’t with you. Please crack the windows to let in some fresh air and oh,

by the way, don’t worry about locking the door, the people have the keys. Jon Tyler Laconia

Again, thank you for your support. Senator Deb Reynolds Senate District 2 Plymouth

I hope this puts country on the right track & not same ole garbage To the editor, Thank God the election is over and done with. No more attack adds for a while. This was NASTY and dumb. All they had to do was tell the people what they were going to do instead of wasting all that money on attack adds that could have been used for reducing the deficit or feeding the hungry. I know how disgusted everyone has been with the Democrats. I just hope this puts our country on the right track and not the same old same garbage as before. But CHARLIE BASS? He has had 12 years. Why did people

give him another chance to be in again? What good did he do? Just because he is a Republican does not mean he is going to do the job well. I just hope they all do the right thing by the AMERICAN people and bring this country back to what it should be. Watch and we all will see. I’m glad it is over with. No more nasty adds or these phone calls. Put a stop to giving illegal aliens free everything. We need to be tough one all issues. Lets become a strong AMERICA again and not a SOFT AMERICA.

Cash-hunting commission told Laconia State School & Ahern State Park won’t be quick fix for state budget woes By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN


CONCORD — The commission exploring the liquidation of state assets, including real estate, to balance the biennial budget yesterday concluded that neither the former Laconia State School property nor Ahern State Park are ripe for sale. City Councilor Matt Lahey (Ward 2), who chairs the commission considering the redevelopment of the State School property, told the commissioners that the value of the site cannot be determined until a number of environmental problems on the site, including conditions in most of the 26 buildings on the property, are assessed and addressed. At the same time, George Bald, the commissioner of Resources and Economic Development whose agency owns and oversees state parks, explained that the process of selling state land is lengthy and open to close public scrutiny. The commission, chaired by Senator Lou D’Allesandro (D-Manchester) is charged with recommending state assets that could be sold or leased for total proceeds of $60-million by June 30, 2011, when the current biennium closes. It is scheduled to report on or before January 1. The $60-million sum was used by lawmakers to bring the state budget into balance. Soon after the commission convened, the 212 acres on Parade Road that housed the State School caught its attention and last month the members toured the property. When the commission met afterwards, State Treasurer Catherine Provencher noted that the value of the property would be enhanced by frontage on Lake Winnisquam and asked if a portion of Ahern State Park could be added to the tract. Describing Ahern State Park as “one of our little jewels,” Bald stressed that it represented one of very few places providing public access to Lake Winnisquam. He said that the agency was working toward entering a longterm lease of the park to the city of

Laconia, which would manage the property. Moreover, the commissioner noted that the Ahern Park Advisory Committee, established by the Legislature to advise the agency on the development of the park, was slated to disband and indicated that if the Legislature did not reconvene it, he would form a similar panel. Bald explained that the process for disposing of state property, including parks, began with referring the proposed sale or lease to the Council on Resources and Development (CORD), consisting of representatives of a variety of state departments and agencies. CORD then forwards its recommendation to the Long-Range Capital Planning and Utilization Committee, a panel of legislators drawn from the House and Senate joined by the commissioners of administrative services and transportation as well as a representative of the governor. The committee presents its recommendation to the governor and Executive Council, which finally approves any sale or lease. “It is meant to be time-consuming,” Bald said. “You want a lot of eyes to see what you are doing.” Lahey presented the findings of SRA, Inc. and Vita Nuova, LLC, the consulting firms that have assessed the prospects of redeveloping the former State School property. He emphasized that an initial environmental assessment of the site indicated that there were typical but significant concerns, chiefly contamination of soils and groundwater by petroleum products and possibly other hazardous materials as well as the presence of asbestos, lead paint and other contaminants in the buildings. Lahey said that a thorough investigation, estimated to cost from $200,000 to $300,000, was required to determine what remedial action would be necessary. Linda Hodgdon, commissioner of administrative services whose department oversees state property, said that she has included funding for the work in the see next page

UNH aims to boost revenue & increase diversity by recruiting international students CONCORD (AP) — The University of New Hampshire is hoping to boost both revenue and the diversity of its student body by partnering with an outside company to recruit and support international students. The university recently became the fifth U.S. campus to sign an agreement with Navitas, a forprofit Australian firm that sets up and manages international pathway programs. About two dozen students are expected to arrive on the Durham campus in May for a year of English-language classes and modified academic courses. Those who succeed will be eligible to continue their studies at UNH alongside their American peers. “It’s an extraordinarily complicated undertaking to understand secondary education systems literally in countries from Argentina to Zimbabwe, and we really have not been able to invest the time and personnel,” said Lisa MacFarlane, senior vice provost for academic affairs at UNH. “It was important for us to have a partner in doing that, and Navitas has a very long and really excellent track record in working really responsibly and successfully with students.” The goal is to have 10-12 percent of the under-

graduate student body come from other countries by the end of the 10-year agreement, university officials said. In the last academic year, 76 of the school’s approximately 12,200 undergraduate students were from other countries, along with 245 of the 2,200 graduate students. Increasing the international student population will mean more money at a time when the number of American high school graduates is expected to decline over the next decade. That means a smaller applicant pool of students, particularly those paying the higher out-of-state tuition. Out-of-staters pay $27,762 per year on tuition and fees, about twice as much as New Hampshire residents. Under the new partnership, UNH will set admission criteria and will review applications from international students. Applicants will be required to meet the same academic requirements as U.S. applicants, except for English-language proficiency, said MacFarlane. For their first year, students will take mix of English language courses taught by staff at the university’s existing language institute and “language-enriched” academic courses. Navitas will hire

from preceding page department’s capital budget request. Moreover, Lahey noted that nine of the buildings were in a state of “major disrepair and required demolition.” Four other buildings are in need of repair and the condition of 10 is described as “good.” Lahey told the commission that Michael Taylor of Vita Nuova reported that “the land is underwater (financially)” because the cost of addressing the environmental problems and condition of the buildings likely exceeds the value of the property. Taylor said that the next steps are to investigate the environmental problems, assess the condition of the buildings and determined the capacity of the infrastructure — roads, water, sewer and utilities — and cautioned that “there

will be significant costs on this site.” The city has assessed the 212 acres for $23.3-million. But, Lahey said that the figure had little meaning since the property is owned by the state. “Be very, very careful of the value,” he advised. When Lahey concluded his remarks Senator Harold Janeway (D-Webster), a member of the commission, said that the panel should not preempt the work of the Laconia councilor’s committee, which is scheduled to present its recommendations for the highest and best use of the property in June. Janeway also commented that the value of the property would not be realized for some time — perhaps not for five or more years — which is well beyond the commission’s time frame.

instructors for the latter from an applicant pool that could include retired and current UNH faculty and staff. The university will approve all hiring for those courses, MacFarlane said. “So Navitas couldn’t just go off and hire someone and put them in the classroom, our faculty would have to approve those hires,” she said. The agreement calls for Navitas to reimburse UNH for the use of the institute and the content of its first-year curriculum. Students pay tuition directly to Navitas during their first year on campus and to UNH after that. “It’s not the kind of relationship a lot of schools have where they hire a recruiter. It’s a more holistic approach than that because it establishes a partnership between Navitas and the university to ensure that these students who are coming halfway around the world to go to school in a language that’s not their own have a context during that first transitional year that helps them to really be successful,” MacFarlane said. Western Kentucky University became the first U.S. college to partner with Navitas earlier this year, followed by the Boston, Lowell and Dartmouth campuses of the University of Massachusetts. Winston Langley, provost at UMass Boston, said only five students are enrolled through the program this semester because the agreement was signed so late in the year, but so far, the students are doing well. Like officials at UNH, he sees the program as a way to not only bring international students to the U.S. but to expose American students to other cultures. “Our students are from fairly modest socio-economic backgrounds generally, and we think especially for those who can’t go abroad, having a critical mix of students from abroad would help to shape the campus’s culture and benefit many of our students,” he said.

Firefighters pour water on the remains of a house fire on Varney Point Road in Gilford on Thursday afternoon. (Alan MacRae/for The Laconia Daily Sun)

FIRE from page one Region General Hospital and later to Massachusetts General Hospital for further treatment. Ron Lien, of Gilford, was at Fay’s Boat Yard yesterday to inquire about an engine part when he witnessed the blaze. As he was pulling out of the business, he noticed the small cabin directly across the street had a small area of flames showing on one end of the roof. He ran into the boat yard’s store to have someone there call 9-1-1, then ran the few hundred feet back to the building, to find that the fire had quickly spread to engulf half of the building. “The woman inside was screaming,” Lien said as he recalled the scene. “I yelled at her to get out, get out, get out.” Lien circled the structure, which he said was emitting flames 30 feet high and singing nearby pine trees. He could hear the woman’s screams, but couldn’t see her through the fire and smoke. Then he saw her. “She comes out the door. Her hair’s on fire,” said Lien, still disbelieving what he saw moments earlier. He watched the woman walk – not run – through seemingly impenetrable flames to exit the house. “I can’t believe the wall of fire she came out of. I’m not embellishing this one bit, the flames were billowing out, the pine trees were on fire.” Lien said the woman was distraught but not seemingly badly hurt once out of the house. She told him that the fire was started by a candle near a television, and that she had tried to extinguish it herself. He said she seemed not to realize the near-miss she had experienced, and was mostly concerned with the loss of property and items in the home, instead of feeling relieved to be alive. She also told him that no one else, including pets, were in the home at the time. “If you had poured gasoline on that fire it would not have gone faster,” Lien said about the intensity of the blaze. Within a few minutes, he estimated, the fire had

destroyed the home. “I cannot believe she walked out through that wall of fire, with her hair on fire.” Jeff Fay, part of the family that owns the boatyard, said he thinks the house has been there since the 1970s and that the couple that owns the property has been there for about six or seven years. He thought the lakeside cabin was used as a vacation property, though the owners would visit year-round. According to 2009 tax records kept by the town, the property is owned by Deborah Roy. However, both Lakes Region General Hospital or Massachusetts General Hospital reported that they had no such patients by that name yesterday evening. Fay said his family’s business was fortunate that the wind was not blowing in the boat yard’s direction, in which case the hot embers could have very easily ignited the shrink-wrapped sailboats and many wooden buildings, examples of each were less than 50 feet from the burning home. “It could have been a huge disaster,” he said. GOP from page 2 is, ‘Republicans want to let insurance companies go back to denying coverage to people with pre-existing conditions, let them go back to charging women twice as much for the same coverage as men, and let them push millions of seniors back into the Medicare doughnut hole,” said Jim Manley, spokesman for Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. The maneuvering unfolded two days after elections that swept Democrats out of power in the House and cut deeply into their Senate majority, scripting an uncertain new era of divided government for the final two years of Obama’s term. In the House, Boehner asked members of the Republican rank and file to support him for speaker see next page

Selectmen & budget committee agree on Gilford police budget for 2011 By Gail OBer

GILFORD — The 2011 austerity movement continued last night when the Budget Committee approved a level funded 2011 Police Department budget of $2,195,211. The budget, down about one-half of a percent provides 1.9-percent raises as stipulated by a collective bargaining agreement that covers 18 of the 23 full-time employees. Other items cut for this year by selectmen and approved by the Budget Committee was the purchase of a second police cruiser. According to Town Administrator Scott Dunn, the selectmen acknowledged that by only buying one new cruiser in 2011, they knew the town would be forced to buy three new cruisers in 2012. Each cruiser costs about $30,000 by the time it is purchased and fitted for equipment. Typically, the department purchases two new cruisers annually and recycles their older vehicles through the other town departments before they are sold or disposed of. Deputy Chief Kevin Keenan explained that the biggest liability the police department has is cruisers and its exposure to automobile accidents. “Our cars need to be at their best,” he said.

He said he and Chief John Markland are continually reviewing the patrol routes for efficiency but acknowledged that putting 40,000 to 50,000 miles on a car each year is not unusual. Keenan said the department requested an increase of overtime to 2009 levels. He said selectmen reduced it for this year, but the department has already exceeded it and the Budget Committee agreed with selectmen to increase it to last year’s levels. Other cost drivers, said Keenan, are the cost of ammunition — officers are required to certify twice annually with their duty weapon — and the price of fuel, which is bought through the state contract at $2.82 per gallon. Keenan also said the costs for training the police dog Agbar have gone down slightly, but added that the generosity of many in the community and his handler Officer Dustin Parent are a huge cost savings to Gilford. Responding to a question from Phyllis Corigan, Keenan said Agbar is 6-years-old and probably has two to three years left before he’ll be retired from service. Keenan said the department will continue to provide 80 hours per week of patrol services to the Glendale docks during the summer months and selectmen agreed the school resource officer position at the Elementary School should be continued.

from preceding page when the new Congress convenes in early January. His victory is a formality, given the huge 60-member gain he engineered as party leader. Nor did there appear to be any competition to Rep. Eric Cantor of Virginia as majority leader, the second-most powerful position in the House. Among Democrats, Speaker Nancy Pelosi has yet to disclose her plans. The most recent speaker whose party lost its majority, Rep. Dennis Hastert of Illinois, resigned from Congress a few months later. Even before the new Congress comes into office, the old one is scheduled to meet the week after next for a post-election session.

In remarks to reporters after meeting with his Cabinet at the White House, Obama urged lawmakers to avert an income tax increase that could take effect Jan 1, ratify a new arms-reduction treaty with Russia, provide unemployment aid to victims of the recession and extend expiring tax breaks for business. Congress also must enact a spending bill that permits government to remain in operation, and the issue already has emerged as a likely flash point in the post-election meeting of Congress. Many House Republicans campaigned on a platform of cutting government spending to levels in effect in see next page

CONCORD (AP) — The last surviving paper mill in New Hampshire’s North Country could reopen if a pending sale goes through, Gov. John Lynch said Thursday in announcing the deal. Lynch said Fraser Papers has reached an agreement to sell its Gorham mill to MM Consulting and Contracting Co. for an undisclosed price. If the deal is finalized, the mill and 240 jobs will be saved, Lynch said. Fraser closed the mill last month after another proposed sale fell through. “This mill is important to the North Country economy, and it’s important that we keep our workers employed. It is because of the workers — and their skills and strong work ethic — that made this agreement possible,” Lynch said in a statement.

The mill is in Coos County, which has the highest unemployment rate in the state. In September, it was 6.2 percent, compared with 5.1 percent for the state. U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen said she was heartened by the prospective buyer’s willingness to try to save the mill and the jobs. Shaheen secured $1 million earlier this year to help reduce the mill’s energy costs, which she said helped attract the buyer. “Today is a good day for the North Country, and I will work hard to ensure that we create more economic opportunity for the region in the weeks and months ahead,” Shaheen said. In September, Fraser announced it would shut the mill indefinitely on Oct. 13, because a potensee next page

from preceding page in 2008, before enactment of an economic stimulus bill and other increases that Democrats passed. Rep. Jerry Lewis of California, the senior Republican on the House Appropriations Committee, notified Democrats during the day that GOP lawmakers will try and implement the cuts when Congress considers the spending bill needed to keep most agencies running for the next eight months. The estimated savings total $100 billion. “The unmistakable message sent by the American people on Tuesday is that they are justifiably angry at Washington. They want Congress to cut spending,” wrote Lewis, who faces an internal challenge in his attempt to become chairman of the panel next year. At a news conference on Wednesday, the president signaled he was ready to jettison his campaign-long insistence that tax cuts be extended for earners at incomes up to $250,000 but be allowed to expire for higher-income people. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs made the hint explicit on Thursday. He said extending tax cuts permanently for upper-income earners “is something the president does not believe is a good idea,” but that Obama would be open to the possibility of extending the cuts for one or two years.

Republicans responded coolly to the overture. “I take any signal that the president may be backing off his pledge to raise taxes on small businesses as a good sign, but we have to see where this discussion goes,” said Rep. Dave Camp of Michigan, in line to become the chairman of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee. He and other Republicans say that the expiration of some income tax cuts would be felt on numerous small business owners. McConnell’s speech reflected his status as leader of a minority unable to originate legislation, a position different from the one Boehner will soon hold. “We have to be realistic about what we can and cannot achieve, while at the same time recognizing that realism should never be confused with capitulation,” the Kentucky senator said. “On health care, that means we can — and should — propose and vote on straight repeal, repeatedly. But we can’t expect the president to sign it.” Boehner, in his ABC interview, said he’s not sure the president and other Democrats fully understand the message delivered by the voters on Tuesday. “When you have the most historic election in over 60, 70 years, you would think the other party would understand that the American people have clearly repudiated the policies they’ve put forward in the last few years.”

Gilford woman burns hands extinguishing basement fire GILFORD — A woman was able to successfully extinguish a fire in the basement of her home yesterday afternoon but had to be transported to Lakes Region General Hospital for treatment of burns to her hands. According to the Fire Department, a fire was reported at 3 p.m. yesterday at 96 Woodland Avenue, where a homeowner was alerted to a basement fire by a working smoke detector. By the time the first responder arrived, about four minutes later, the fire was

extinguished by a woman identified as the homeowner, who had suffered what the Fire Department report called “significant” burns to her hands and was transported to Lakes Region General Hospital for treatment. A second patient was treated on scene for smoke inhalation. There was no fire or water damage to the building, although it had filled with smoke by the time firefighters arrived. — Adam Drapcho

from preceding page tial buyer could not secure sufficient financing. The state worked to keep the mill open by calling companies that had expressed an interest in buying it in the past. Lynch recently met with MM Consulting and Contracting Co. to discuss the mill’s purchase, his office said. If the agreement is finalized and the mill reopens, a project to bring a gas line to the mill to help cut operating costs will proceed. The $4 million project is being funded from various local,

state and federal sources. The gas line was an attractive draw because it would supply power to the mill from a landfill, a much cheaper option than the current heating source, oil. Berlin Mayor Paul Grenier said Thursday he is “forever grateful to the governor and (Resources and Economic Development Commissioner) George Bald for all their effort and their commitment to the North Country. It is truly a beautiful day in Gorham and Berlin.”

BAND from page one “I would certainly welcome that coming back,” Hayes said. The Community Band cost taxpayers $1,500 annually and the selectmen agreed in their final budget proposal to cut that figure in half. A letter-to-the-editor writing campaign mounted by longtime band clarinetist Alice Beyrent and other community band supporters lead to others speaking up and expressing support for the 38-year-old band. “The heart of the community is in its participation,” Beyrent said earlier yesterday. She said the participants are musicians from all ages and walks of life and at one point the band was 68-members strong. She said for the most part, the musicians were not professionals but people who play musical instruments who want to play with other musicians and give back to their community. “Without this opportunity, many would have no place to play,” she said. Beyrent also said another positive about the community band was that different generations play together and learn from each other. She said for years she played clarinet next to a 90-year-old summer resident from Lowell and that her

daughter, who is a professional musician with the U.S. Coast Guard Band, began playing with a community band when she was in third grade. She said the $1,500, distributed to the conductor, who is her daughter-inlaw and the music instructor at the high school, pays for music and royalties, and pays for the lighting and sound people for the concerts at the high school. The Community Band plays five annual free outdoor concerts at the Gilford Commons, unless it rains and the concert goes to t, performs twice for old home day and gives the annual Christmas concert in the high school auditorium. Hickok said he would entertain a motion from any of his Budget Committee members to reinstate the $750. At the close of last night’s Budget Committee meeting, member Phyllis Corigan asked Town Finance Director Geoff Ruggles how one would go about contributing to the band. He said people would have to contact one of the individual members because the money that the town gives is also considered a contribution. He said the band only “puts the hats out” for collections at the Christmas Concert. The meeting ended with no other motions were made.

SENATE from page one other issues, such as abortion limits and repealing gay marriage, but the Republican-controlled House appears poised to take up the social issues and possibly send legislation to the Senate. Bragdon said he will not bring a personal agenda to the Republican Senate caucus but plans to help members develop an agenda. “My biggest challenge will be to try to coordinate all those opinions,” he said. He said he expects the Senate to tackle budget-related issues as well as a prison reform law mandating early release of inmates with supervision. The prison bill passed with bipartisan support but Republicans argued

afterward that they acted without realizing it meant releasing violent offenders. Bragdon said the law needs to be revisited, possibly giving more discretion to the parole board over the releases. Bragdon said he would appoint Salem Republican Chuck Morse as his Finance Committee chairman, a post Morse held during an earlier stint in the state Senate. He picked Lempster Republican Bob Odell to head the Ways and Means Committee. Other committee assignments have not been decided, Bragdon said. Bragdon said he planned to appoint Wolfeboro Republican Jeb Bradley as see next page

There was still a considerable State Police presence at murder victim Roberta Miller’s Country Club Road home in Gilford on Thursday, though the street was open to public traffic for the first time since her body was discovered on Monday evening. (Laconia Daily Sun photo/ Gail Ober)

MURDER from page one was reopened to through traffic Thursday, although state police remained at the home. In June 2007 Miller separated from her husband of 26 years , Gary Miller, a former car dealer from Wolfeboro, and soon after filed for a divorce, which was granted on Aug. 13 of this year. The couple have two adult children, Jennifer, who lives in California, and Jonathan, who a neighbor said frequently visited his mother in Gilford. Three days after the divorce decree, Miller purchased the property at 123 Country Club Road and on October 28 placed it in a trust of which she was the trustee. That same day Miller also placed the former family home at 82 Haines Hill Road in Wolfeboro, which she was awarded in the divorce, in the same trust. Court documents and sources familiar with the Millers indicate that the divorce proceedings were protracted and contentious, as the two quarreled over

the division of property. On October 7, her former husband filed a motion for contempt of a court order, claiming that Miller owed him $74,094.50 in taxes and $6,097.34 in legal fees. Miller countered that she was without work and attending college and had exhausted the more than $900,000 she received when the joint assets were divided to pay taxes, mortgages, insurance, tuition and living expenses. The two were scheduled to appear in Carroll County Superior Court for a hearing this week. Meanwhile, last Friday, three days before Miller’s body was discovered, a three-season cottage in Acton, Maine, owned by Gary Miller, was destroyed by fire. The fire remains under investigation by the Maine Fire Marshal. Authorities have repeatedly asked anyone with information with about Miller’s movements or whereabouts in the week before her body was found to contact the state police at 223-4381. Otherwise they have revealed little information, which has troubled Administrator Dunn, who see next page from preceding page majority leader.

Cuban airliner crash kills 68 people

HAVANA (AP) — A Cuban airliner flying from the eastern city of Santiago de Cuba to the capital crashed after declaring an emergency Thursday evening with 68 people aboard, including 28 foreigners, state media reported. There was no immediate word on whether any survived. AeroCaribbean Flight 883 went down near the village of Guasimal in Santi Spiritus province, carrying 61 passengers and a crew of seven, state television said. It said 28 passengers were foreigners, but did not give a breakdown of nationalities. State media said the names of those on board would be released later. The twice-a-week flight goes from Port-au-Prince, Haiti, to Santiago de Cuba to Havana. It had been due to land in the Cuban capital at 7:50 p.m, but reported an emergency at 5:42 p.m. and subsequently lost contact with air traffic controllers. State media said that the plane was an ATR-72 twin turboprop and that the crash site was not far from the Zaza reservoir, the largest in Cuba. It said doctors and emergency workers in the area were mobilized. At Havana’s national terminal, relatives of those from preceding page yesterday on behalf of selectmen and residents expressed his “indignation” at the handling of the investigation by the major crimes unit of the state police and the attorney generals office to Executive Councilor Ray Burton. He told Burton that Country Club Road has been closed since Monday and no information has been shared with the public, calling the conduct “baffling and unacceptable.” Explaining that he had no wish to compromise the investigation, he wrote that “the time has long passed for a press release or news conference pertaining to the safety of the citizens of the neighborhood, the continuing need for the road closure and the status of the investigation.” Later in the day Dunn reported his reassuring conversation with Agati.

on board the plane were kept isolated from other passengers and journalists. “This is very sad,” said Caridad de las Mercedes Gonzalez, who was manning an airport information desk. “We are very worried. This has taken us by surprise.” State media gave no details on what happened to the airliner, saying only that the cause of the crash was being investigated. The flight would have been one of the last leaving Santiago de Cuba for Havana ahead of Tropical Storm Tomas, which was on a track to pass between Cuba’s eastern end and the western coast of Haiti on Friday. Cuban media said earlier that flights and train service to Santiago were being suspended until the storm passed. AeroCaribbean is owned by Cuban state airline Cubana de Aviacion. The last passenger plane crash on the island occurred in March 2002, when a Soviet-made biplane carrying 16 people — including 12 foreigners — plunged into a small reservoir in central Cuba. The plane was operated by a small local charter company called Aerotaxi.

Pittsburg man faces murder charge PITTSBURG, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire man accused of shooting two people at his Pittsburg home also will be charged with killing a man whose body was found in a burning car on his property. The attorney general’s office said Thursday that 50-year-old Kenneth Arsenault will be charged with first-degree murder in the death of 21-yearold Justin Flanders of Stewartstown. According to autopsy results, Flanders died of a shotgun wound to the chest and severe burns. His body was found Tuesday morning when authorities responded to the shooting. Arsenault is charged with two counts of attempted murder for the shooting of 25-year-old Jesse Parker and 30-year-old Tanya Rancloes. Parker was in good condition Thursday. Rancloes was in critical condition.

Through trial and error, you’ll finally figure out how to get through to someone. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Arguments can go on without you, and you won’t feel a strong need to weigh in on one side or the other. Your neutrality helps you stay open to communication and remain helpful to all. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You are smart to admit your mistakes when pressed and even smarter not to offer them up willy-nilly when there’s no reason to do so. Success will have a lot to do with knowing when to stay quiet. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You have faith in yourself, and you trust life. Because of this, you will be able to sustain your power during challenges. Your inner essence is strong, and that’s what’s important. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Helping someone else will help you. Your self-esteem rises with every kind action. Your talent grows and you radiate confidence, all because you treat others so well. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 5).

That’s why they feel secure around you. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Taking yourself too seriously is a real danger. You have terrific instincts, and there’s no reason to second-guess your choices. So just relax and trust yourself. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You have a demanding person inside you, directing you at every turn to try harder, be bigger and strive for more. Tell that person to pipe down. You can do your best without being so hard on yourself. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There are no “shoulds.” You are either doing something or you’re not doing it. Lose the worry and regret. Get comfortable with your choices. Accept them, or do something else. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have strong conceptual skills and will come up with a winning plan to sell an idea or move a business forward in some way. Apply this talent to your personal life, too. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It’s safe to give feedback to anyone who asks for it, but don’t chime in if you’re not asked -- that will only lead to trouble. You are more truthful than some people can handle.

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, Nov. 5, the 309th day of 2010. There are 56 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 5, 1940, President Franklin D. Roosevelt won an unprecedented third term in office as he defeated Republican challenger Wendell L. Willkie. On this date: In 1605, the “Gunpowder Plot” failed as Guy Fawkes was seized before he could blow up the English Parliament. In 1872, suffragist Susan B. Anthony defied the law by attempting to vote for President Ulysses S. Grant. In 1935, Parker Brothers began marketing the board game “Monopoly.” In 1946, Republicans captured control of both the Senate and the House in midterm elections. In 1960, silent film producer Mack Sennett, best known for his “Keystone Kops” comedies and introducing Charlie Chaplin to the screen, died in Los Angeles at age 80. In 1968, Richard M. Nixon won the presidency, defeating Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey and American Independent candidate George C. Wallace. In 1974, Ella T. Grasso was elected governor of Connecticut, becoming the first woman to win a gubernatorial office without succeeding her husband. In 1990, Rabbi Meir Kahane, the Brooklyn-born Israeli extremist, was shot to death at a New York hotel. In 1999, U.S. District Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson declared Microsoft Corp. a monopoly. (Judge Jackson later ordered Microsoft broken up into two companies, but the Justice Department subsequently said it was no longer seeking a breakup.) One year ago: A shooting rampage at the Fort Hood Army post in Texas left 13 people dead; Maj. Nidal Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, was charged with premeditated murder and attempted murder for the worst mass killing on a U.S. military base. Today’s Birthdays: Actor Chris Robinson is 72. Actress Elke Sommer is 70. Oregon Gov. Ted Kulongoski is 70. Singer Art Garfunkel is 69. Actor-playwright Sam Shepard is 67. Singer Peter Noone is 63. Actor Nestor Serrano (“24”) is 55.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, November 5, 2010— Page 19


Dear Annie: I’ve known my 26-year-old stepdaughter, “Monica,” since she was 5. She never spent much time with her father, but when the first grandchild was born, she came by more often because she wanted a babysitter. Her dad and I were together 21 years before he passed away six months ago. Now when I hear from Monica, all she wants to do is rehash everything that happened at the end of her father’s life. She harangues me about difficult choices I had to make, even though my husband and I discussed those things in advance. I still have two children at home and work full time, and I am trying to deal with my own grief. Monica’s attitude makes it hard to stay in contact. I know she is grieving, too, but I think she feels guilty for not spending more time with her dad before it was too late. She hurt him a great deal over the years. I’m sure Monica is angry that I haven’t called lately, but I just can’t deal with her. I do love her and our grandchild, but am I wrong to want some distance right now? -- Still Grieving Dear Still: We understand that you want to avoid being assaulted by Monica. But please know that these things can take on a life of their own, and the relationship may not recover -- even when you are ready. Because you love her and the grandchild, we recommend instead that you maintain minimal contact (as much as you can handle at a time) and urge Monica to get grief counseling. You might even offer to go with her. Dear Annie: My wife and I have been happily married for 30 years without any major arguments, until now. Our 22-year-old daughter recently moved into an apartment and discovered that no pets were allowed. This meant her 9-yearold cocker spaniel, who is blind and incontinent, did not have a home. My wife offered to take the dog into our house, and it has been living with us for six weeks. I cannot tolerate the smell and the mess any longer. I told

my wife the dog must leave. She said if the dog goes, she goes with it. I do not wish to end my marriage, but I cannot remain here with the dog. What should I do? -- Solicitous Spouse Dear Spouse: Something more is going on if your wife of 30 years is willing to throw you over for a blind, incontinent dog she’s had for only six weeks. It’s possible she is reluctant to part with the animal because the dog is her link to her daughter. You need to talk to her and find out why she has put the dog first in your marriage. You might also enlist a neutral third party to referee. Or give your daughter a few months to find a new apartment that is dog friendly. Dear Annie: Your advice to “Shirley” regarding a 5-monthold, 12-pound baby whose mother kept him wrapped in a blanket most of the time was off the mark. Having worked as a child abuse/neglect investigator, I can tell you that if Shirley had contacted Child Protective Services, we would have opened an investigation based on Petey’s size alone. Keeping the baby wrapped tightly and napping most of the time also sets off alarm bells. If Petey is not given enough attention and stimulation, not to mention food, he could suffer lasting developmental delays or even starve to death. Petey is likely the victim of physical neglect. Shirley should immediately report Petey’s situation to her local Child Protective Services office. Whether or not the child is being neglected, CPS will likely offer Petey’s mother some assistance and monitor the family until the situation improves. -- Concerned Social Worker Dear Social Worker: Depending on the child’s birth weight, 12 pounds is not unreasonably low at five months. And Shirley is only guessing the actual weight. Petey sees the pediatrician regularly, and if he were failing to thrive, it would be noticed. We do agree, however, that the situation bears watching.

Deadline to contribute to Feeding NH Food Drive is Tuesday, November 16 LACONIA — Laconia Savings Bank is hosting a Feeding NH Food Drive at each of its 19 community offices until Tuesday, November 16. LSB is banking on the generous spirit of Granite State residents, collecting non-perishable food items as well as monetary donations. The items collected in each office will benefit local food pantries throughout the state as they prepare to assemble Thanksgiving baskets for those in need. “Hunger is a problem all year long, not just during the holidays,” said LSB Vice President, Director of Marketing and Public Relations Vickie Routhier. “Our goal is to help stock the shelves of local food pantries during the season of giving.” Saint Vincent De Paul, a Laconia food pantry, distributes 500 Thanksgiving baskets each year and this year the shelves are virtually empty. NH Food Pantries rely heavily on members of the local communities for support and, unfortunately, many members of the community who were making donations in the past are now in need of this service themselves. When asked about the current conditions, Jo Carignan of the Saint Vincent De Paul Food Pantry stated, “In 20 years, this is the worst I have ever seen it.” from preceding page basis. Participants must R.S.V.P. no later than noon on Friday, November 12. For more information or to R.S.V.P., contact Parks and Recreation at 527-4722.
