LACONIA— The running battle between policyholders and state officials over the $110-million in the accumulated surplus of the of the New Hampshire Medical Malpractice Joint Underwriting Association (JUA) promises to add fireworks to the November election. In the Lakes Region, where LRGHealthcare, as the single largest policyholder of the JUA, has led the challenge to
the state, Democrats may find themselves caught between their governor and legislative leaders and their constituency. LRHealthcare is easily the largest economic engine in the Lakes Region. Ever since Lynch included the money in his 2010-2011 budget adopted by the Democratic majority in the Legislature, Republicans have charged the Democrats with taking private property to balance the state’s books.

The Luschers, originally from Switzerland, have constructed a hilltop home in the style of a traditional Swiss chalet. Their grandson, Morgan McCarthy, attends the summer program and so
they invited the group of about 30 to their home. There, the students heard traditional Swiss music, rang an authentic cow bell, heard Sylvia McCarthy – Morgan’s mother – speak about the Swiss flag and heard Henry Luscher tell about Switzerland and the story of William Tell. see SWITZERLAND page 11

Mel Gibson tapes fodder for jokes NEW YORK (AP) — Since the celebrity website RadarOnline.com gradually released recordings purportedly of Mel Gibson, the tapes have been used for comedy fodder across the Internet, inspiring remixes, mash-ups and an endless stream of tweets. The recordings reveal grim, ugly arguments between a man who sounds distinctly like Gibson and a woman identiﬁed by the site as his ex-girlfriend and mother of his child, Oksana Grigorieva. The anger and ethnic slurs make the tapes difﬁcult to listen to. Parody, though, has come easier. “It’s the gift that keeps on giving,” said Justin Stangel, who, with his brother Eric, is co-head writer and executive producer of “Late Show With David Letterman.” Late night shows have put the subject in heavy rotation, none perhaps as much at CBS’ “Late Show.” Letterman has joked that the biggest problem of Apple’s iPhone 4 is that it “only accepts calls from Mel Gibson.” “We always try to focus on: This is A-list celebrity Mel Gibson losing his mind,” says Justin Stangel. “It’s such a big story that you have to make jokes about it, but you’re not going to make jokes about some of the grim things that may or may not have been going on.”

North Korea vows powerful nuclear response HANOI, Vietnam (AP) — North Korea threatened Saturday to mount a powerful nuclear response to upcoming joint U.S.South Korean military drills, calling the exercises an “unpardonable” provocation on top of wrongly blaming Pyongyang for the sinking of a South Korean warship. North Korea’s powerful National Defense Commission, led by leader Kim Jong Il, warned that its troops would counter the move to hold military maneuvers involving a nuclear-armed U.S. supercarrier with a “retaliatory sacred war.” “The army and people of the DPRK will legitimately counter with their powerful nuclear deterrence the largest-ever nuclear war exercises to be staged by the U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces,” North Korea’s official news agency in Pyongyang quoted an unnamed commission spokesman as saying, referring to the country by its official name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. Pyongyang routinely threatens war
when South Korea and the U.S. hold joint military drills, which North Korea sees as a rehearsal for an attack on the North. The U.S. keeps 28,500 troops in the South to deter against aggression, but says it has not intention of invading the North. U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates and South Korean Defense Minister Kim Tae-young announced earlier this week in Seoul that the allies would stage a massive four-day military show of force starting Sunday to send a “clear message” to North Korea to stop its aggressive behavior. Washington and Seoul blame Pyongyang for the deadly sinking of a South Korean warship in the waters off Korea’s west coast. Forty-six sailors were killed in what Seoul calls the worst military attack on South Korea since the 1950-53 Korean War. North Korea vehemently denies any involvement, and has warned that any punishment would trigger war. In Vietnam for a Southeast Asian regional security forum, U.S. Secretary of
State Hillary Rodham Clinton and a North Korean official traded barbs over the sinking, the military drills and the imposition of new U.S. sanctions against the North. Also Friday, the U.S.-led military command monitoring the cease-fire on the Korean peninsula confronted the North about the March 26 sinking of the Cheonan, calling it a violation of the armistice signed in 1953. Colonels from the U.N. Command, who met at the border with counterparts from the North’s army, reminded them of the U.N. Security Council order to honor the truce. Officers also proposed a joint task force to discuss armistice violations, the military commission said in a statement. A team of international investigators concluded in May that a North Korean submarine fired the torpedo that sank the Cheonan. The U.N. Security Council approved a presidential statement this month condemning the sinking, but did not directly blame Pyongyang. see NORTH KOREA page 8
BELL, Calif. (AP) — Residents in this modest blue-collar Los Angeles suburb where one in six lives in poverty were angry: Their city manager was getting paid more than President Barack Obama and the police chief more than the commander of the nearly 13,000-member LAPD. They demanded and got the manager, the chief and another high-salaried official to resign.
They looked for the culprits and found them in the very people they entrusted to lead their city of 40,000 people. Now, they’re campaigning to boot them out of office. Their mayor and three of their four council members, people they see every day at the grocery store or church, approved the contracts, and put an obscure measure on the ballot that allowed council members to pay themselves any amount of money.
And they did: collecting between $90,000 and $100,000 a year as part-time officials. “This is America and everything should be transparent,” plumber and longtime Bell resident Ralph Macias said. In Bell, however, not many people really paid attention. The city of mostly small homes is like many American cities and towns: No newspaper covers them regusee SALARIES page 9

Rangel case confronts Democrats with unsavory choices WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats nervously anticipating Rep. Charles Rangel’s ethics trial know all about the media frenzy and negative ads accompanying election-season scandals. They generated it themselves in 2006, when Republican Rep. Mark Foley was forced to resign in disgrace. Foley’s misdeeds stemmed from his dealings with House pages and efforts by Republicans, then in the majority, to ignore and cover them up. Rangel’s ethics charges raise questions about his management of money and taxes and his official role — and pose difficult choices for the party that won its majority in large part by vowing to run the most ethical Congress in history. Rangel has long acknowledged that his ethics troubles had no upside for Democrats in difficult reelection bids. The good news, he said at a news conference Friday, was that perhaps the matter would soon end. Not if Republicans, still feeling the decisive sting of the Foley scandal, can help it. “Rangel announcement a reminder of Washington Democrats’ ‘Most Glaring Broken Promise,’” read the headline on a news release quoting House Republican Leader John Boehner. Across the Capitol, Republicans in the Senate tried to get some mileage out of Rangel’s difficulties with a briefing leading off with: “Dem Senate hopefuls stand by Charlie Rangel and his tainted cash.” That wasn’t quite true. Rep. Brad Ellsworth, D-Ind., a candidate for the Senate, announced Friday he will donate past campaign contributions from Rangel to Indiana charities. His campaign received $12,000 from Rangel between 2005 and 2007, but Ellsworth said he has not received contributions for his Senate race. For his part, Rangel vowed to fight the charges, starting with a public hearing on Thursday. “I hope you do get some sort of satisfaction that this
thing is coming to a head,” Rangel told reporters. That may or may not be a good thing for Rangel and the Democrats. There was an emphatic lack of meaningful comment from House Democratic leaders Friday, an indication that the way forward for the 40-year congressional veteran, beloved in many quarters, was unclear to just about everyone. More clear was evidence that the stress of living day-to-day as a scandalized public figure had begun to weigh on the feisty, 80-year-old former Ways and Means Committee chairman. Shortly after the ethics committee announced what amounted to an indictment on unspecified charges Thursday, Rangel snapped at a reporter for asking the “dumb” question of whether his job was in jeopardy. He apologized Friday and convened a news conference to give reporters who had been hounding him everywhere he went a chance to ask any questions they wanted. But there would not be many answers, Rangel said, several times describing his situation as “awkward.” “My lawyers would kill me because they say the best thing in my best interests is not to make any comment,” Rangel said during a news conference in New York. “I don’t know how to say no comment.” Was he relishing the fight, he was asked? “Hell no,” he replied. On Capitol Hill Friday, several knowledgeable Democrats said any strategic planning had effectively been placed on hold until it became clear whether Rangel could avoid a public trial by striking a deal — or resigning. Absent that, the choices for Democratic leaders were stark: Option one: Urge him to cut the proceedings short by admitting guilt to some charges and/or resigning from the House. This would kick up a storm of see DEMOCRATS page 6

Lynch vetoes new exception to Right-to-Know law
CONCORD (AP) — Gov. John Lynch has vetoed a bill that would exempt public officials and the staff of a public agency meeting as a group from complying with New Hampshire’s Right to Know Law. Lynch said the law plays a critical role in assuring transparency and accountability in government. He said the bill could dilute the public’s access to government records. Under the bill, a public body would not include
an individual executive or administrative officer of a public agency or staff of an agency meeting as a group. They would not be subject to the law’s open meeting requirement. Lynch said changes to the law should be narrow and not leave room for ambiguity or misinterpretation about existing obligations to provide the public access to records.

‘2001’ revisited The most wrong assumption in the sci-fi movie classic “2001: A Space Odyssey” was that technology would liberate humans from a life of hassle. Made 42 years ago, Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece shows 21st century humankind going about its business in a leisurely fashion as machines do the bull work. A gentle Strauss waltz plays in the background. Futurists of the past clearly thought that if machines could help humans do eight hours of work in six, people would have two more hours of free time. That didn’t happen. Instead, people started doing 10 hours of work in eight hours. Humans were offered the gift of free time, and they turned it down. Many now plan their 24-hour day around how much computers will let them do. The phenomenon of assignment overload goes well beyond work. After all, we multitask in our offtime, as well. We simultaneously watch TV, surf the web and talk on the phone. The technology lets us turn our cars into second homes and offices. It’s amazing, when you think of it, that states actually have to pass laws telling people not to textmessage and drive at the same time. Some of this speed-up could be the legacy of the two-job couple. The tranquil housekeeper of generations past has pretty much disappeared. No one’s home during the day to do the laundry, cooking and other household chores. So when breadwinners leave the job, they try to stuff all these domestic duties into their “free” time, again with the help of technology. They call the folks while driving. They shop on the Internet for presents while waiting at the doctor’s office. Were it not for “time-saving” technology, they’d have no choice but to do less. And the more they can do, the faster they want to do it. “Waiting has become an intolerable circumstance,” cultural critic David Shi has noted. “We get on an elevator and immediately rush to the close-door button for fear of waiting 10 seconds.” If the computer doesn’t download a Web-
page in 15 seconds, we move on. All this doesn’t seem to be making people very happy. An entire industry has grown around reducing stress. The popularity of yoga and meditation, which train people to become aware of the present moment, speaks of the need to combat the ill effects of jumping from thing to thing. An elementary school in Silver Spring, Md., offers a stress management class for second-graders. Merchants do a brisk business in scented candles with alleged calming properties. Meanwhile, Americans gulp all varieties of legal and illegal drugs “to take the edge off.” But doing one thing at a time is more than some people can take. Hence, power yoga, which purports to combine the meditative process with burning carbs. Perhaps all this frenetic activity is itself a drug to drive off the demons of depression. Weaker family ties and friendships leave many vulnerable to loneliness. Television and the Web offer only the illusion of companionship. The most famous scene in “2001: A Space Odyssey” shows a sassy computer named HAL 9000 turning into a crazy human-like “being.” He begs for his life as an astronaut removes his modules one by one. (The humans in the movie are the ones without emotion.) When humans malfunction, we now use such machine-related terms as “flameout” and “overload.” Indeed, “multitasking” started out as a computer word, referring to the machine’s ability to run several programs at once. Have soulless machines commandeered our waking hours without our consent — or have people chosen to let technology-driven busy-ness hide the pain of being human? That question is worth pondering.

She has written for such diverse publications as The New York Times, Harper’s Bazaar and Institutional Investor.)
— LETTERS — Once again Robbie Mills’ father has been done an injustice To the editor, My brother, Robert LaPierre, the father of Robbie Mills, has once again been ignored. He, nor any member of my family, were notified when the new sign for the Robbie Mills Field was to be erected. My family were the ones to first contact the city manager, Laconia Savings Bank, and the Muskrats in protest of the red LSB sign. My brother worked directly with Mr. Curtis, Executive Vice President of Laconia Savings Bank, not only to correct this sign but to be involved in the design of the new sign for the Sports
Complex itself. My brother is a man of few words but what he accomplished behind the scenes was admirable. This is a man who talked to his son every day and at the end of each conversation told him he loved him. He continues these conversations with Robbie but it requires a daily trip to the cemetery. My brother does not want to be in the “spotlight,” just remembered as Robbie Mills’ father. Linda LaPierre-Giuliano East Hartford, CT
LETTERS Yes, there are some great patriots out there doing great work To the editor: About Professor Sandy’s column “Enduring War”: It was a long, tough, agonizing read I but managed, with the help of antacids, to complete it, only because I recognized a couple of names among the professor’s list of ”Peaceful Patriots”. Actually, I recognized a few but will only mention two. Bobby Muller, Vietnam Veteran and founder of the Vietnam Veterans of America: I had the opportunity to meet Bobby many years ago in Rutland, Vt., along with the two Vietnam Veterans who started Chapter #1 in Rutland. The three are Vietnam Veterans, brother’s, I respected and continue to respect (one has passed away) to this day. I know where their hearts are, what they believe and why they believe the way they do. Bruce Bouley of Rumney, NH,Vietnam Veteran and Counselor to veterans with PTSD. The professor forgot to add or didn’t know enough to add, “A true hero and believer in Faith, Trust and Truth. I’ll add that. A respected friend of mine and many others. I don’t think Bruce will mind. The professor’s article goes on to discuss more information about war, the feelings, costs and ideas of others, as usual. I was just interested in the names. I’d like to add another to the list to be considered as
a “Peaceful Patriot”. His name is John “Top” Holland. The professor and probably all of the others listed may not recognize the name (Bruce and Bobby might). I won’t go on a rant here. Top passed away two days ago. He served in the Marine Corps in WW2 and served in the Army during Korea and Army Special Forces during Vietnam. Top was a founder of Rolling Thunder. In fact, he funded the rally and for the first eight years by mortgaging his farm. That was when Rolling Thunder was first founded and truly involved in the POW/MIA issue and “Truth”, and not just the sale of T-shirts. Top’s life will be celebrated by family and friends at the farm in Morres Hill, Indiana and his ashes will be spread at “The Wall” in Washington, DC. Yup, there are some great “Peaceful Patriots” out there doing some great work who believe in Faith, Trust and Truth and that one generation of Veterans can never again leave another generation of Veterans behind. We have an American Serviceman being held “POW” in Afghanistan this day and hidden by terminology and I’d like to ask the professor when he last made an effort to do anything besides writing article’s using the words of others to make a difference? Bob Jones Meredith
‘Democratic’ refers to fair or uniform; Democrat is a person To the editor, This is written in response to Bernadette Loesch’s letter of July 22. The correct way to refer to a member of the U.S. Democratic Party is Democrat, or if many members, Democrats. Democratic refers to fair or uniform, which can and often describes Republicans. That may refer to some Democrats, but as a group, they seem to want to hide that. It’s sad that you can’t recall real history, and want me to teach it to you again. But, if you failed the first time I doubt if you’ll understand it again. I apologize for my error in referring to Obama’s staff: I intended to say “as
stupid”, not more, since more might be impossible. Again, if you can’t observe that, as most people do, then clearly I can’t explain it to you. Surely you must know that BP did NOT build that oil rig, or operate it, but in typical convoluted corporate interactions, financed it for a portion of the net profits, and thus became responsible. Their stated goal was to totally control the leak and recover oil from the well (it’s only reason for being drilled), thus reducing the pressure and assuring no more leaks. Instead, when Obama finally got involved, he blocked any oil recovery plans and is see next page

LETTERS Treaty of Tripoli was only signed to appease the Barbary pirates To the editor, Gary Walker’s July 16 letter in the Laconia Citizen — “Clueless?” — needs to be answered, so I will give it a shot. I must say that I have no problem understanding that our federal government is a secular government. I have very much a problem with those who would sever the flow of Christian principles from being disseminated throughout our culture, for they are the very principles that have sustained our nation in generations past. Gary seems to like to use quotations, so I will give him some. The following is a quote from George Washington’s Farewell Address. “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connections with with private and public felicity. Let it simply be asked: Where is the security of property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice? And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to
expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle. It is substantially true that virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government. The rule, indeed, extends with more or less force to every species of free government. Who that is a sincere friend to it can look with indifference upon attempts to shake the foundation of the fabric.” This address was presented to the people of the United States in written form around the same time in which Gary’s Treaty of Tripoli was signed. It’s revealing that strict separationists use the Treaty of Tripoli of 1797 to support their view of what the relationship between church and state should be like. It was only in force for a few years, was accompanied by a hefty tribute payment so that the Barbary pirates would not seize our ships and sell the crews and passengers as slaves. The Barbary States, which Tripoli was one of, were Muslim states. If any of their captives were Christians they would treat them very badly and many would die. Understanding this, it’s not surprising that the treaty would have language assuring that we were not a Christian nation. The purpose of the treaty was not to give instruction to the people on domestic affairs but to appease an enemy, which we had not yet had a navy to fight. On the other hand, Washington’s Farewell Address was published in 1796 and was written to exhort and encourage the American people in the things needsee next page
Who’s going to pay for these low-income, year-around residents? To the editor, Bring on the big Tilton Walmart and its 80 plus jobs. I might take one. There were six jobs listed in the paper week last week. At last months Tilton Planning Board meeting our beloved Selectman Dawson stated that she does not support the expansion of Walmart or its policies. Let me shake my head, maybe I have a hearing problem. It must be because of all the construction noise in Lochmere for the USDA low income housing thats going on and there is from preceding page thus trying to get the well destroyed, a sure fired way to assure more massive leaks. IF you have followed the whole case, you would know that the purpose of that intercepting well (almost completed now, they claim) was to get the oil out that way and reduce or eliminate pressure on the original poorly constructed well. Since the last cap has held well, the obvious next step (which should have happened a week ago) is to install the pipe to surface recovery ships and reduce pressure while recovering oil. I guess you didn’t notice, or understand my reference to the value of oil recovery off shore from Santa Barbara, California. Oil seeps from the sea bed there had left tar balls on those beaches for as long as recorded history there. To get those wells installed took a hell of a battle with pseudo environmentalist who claimed the oil rigs would be an
another one in the works. The residents I have talked to in Lochmere will be locking their doors for the first time. We can’t call Wellington to express our concerns, he’s gone. I wonder why? Who’s going to pay for all these new low income, year-round residents that need schooling etc? I know, let’s ask the voters. Look on the bright side, Lynch and Obmna will save us all. Thomas Sellew Lochmere (Tilton)
unacceptable scourge on boating and fishing. But the rigs went in, oil was harvested, oil seeps stopped. The oil rigs became good navigation references, and fishing around them was so great that when oil was exhausted and the oil companies wanted to take out the rigs, the protest from fishermen and boaters prevented that! Note, at that time we were doing a lot of sailing in that area of California, and observed all that first hand. BP should ignore Obama’s goons and pump out that oil as fast as they can. But, that would be just good engineering and environmentally friendly, not politically correct. They complain that Obama was far too slow to even recognize there was a problem there, but when he finally, slowly, got involved all he did was block intelligent progress! Is that what makes him your “hero”? Jack Stephenson Gilford

DEMOCRATS from page 3 unrest especially from the Congressional Black Caucus, which Rangel helped found. Option two: Sit back and watch the New York Democrat’s trial unfold, hope that voters aren’t as incensed by Rangel’s fundraising practices and his failure to pay taxes as they were over Foley’s come-ons to former male pages. And get some defense ready for the Republican charges of hypocrisy and failure to “drain the swamp” of corruption as Democrats vowed four years ago. from preceding page ful to keep our republic. It’s interesting that strict separationists chose the Treaty of Tripoli out of context to hide the fact that their understanding of the 1st amendment represents a change in it’s clear meaning and how it was understood for more than a century after it was written. Again I’ll show you the kind of thing that Gary does to mislead the reader. He says, “the phrase religious freedom is not in the Constitution.” Though the “phrase” is not there, it says, “ Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” The amendment is actually stronger than the phrase “freedom of religion” for it forbids the branch of the federal government responsible for writing laws from prohibiting the free exercise of religion. Some of the states had state sponsored religions. The establishment clause didn’t apply to the states. In fact one of the reasons that the Bill of Rights was added was to assure states that the Federal Government would not interfere with these things. Less than 200 years after the ratification of our Constitution what Congress was forbidden to do, and what I believe with all my heart was unconstitutional for the court to do, the Supreme Court did. In short it applied the 1st amendment to the states through the equal protection clause of the 14th amendment, ignoring 9th

At the very least, majority Democrats are getting a taste of what it’s like to manage a transcendent scandal in the shadow of an election. Four years ago, then-Speaker Dennis Hastert and other top Republicans were besieged daily by reporters demanding to know why Foley’s conduct was allowed to go on for years. Then, it was Democrats running the negative ads. And, while all the Republicans wanted Foley to quit, his resignation didn’t stop the bleeding. The cover up became the story. Then came the election. Republicans lost the House. amendment, for when state and local governments are functioning properly they reflect the will of the people. I see it as an indictment on our judiciary that in the 1963 supreme court case of Abington School District v Schemp, which threw state sponsored Bible reading out of our public schools, that only one justice out of nine was careful enough — considering the father of our country’s exhortation above — to want to remand the case for further investigation, saying of the court’s ruling, “ this argument seriously misconceives the basic constitutional justification for permitting the exercises at issue in these cases. For a compulsory state educational system so structures a child’s life that if religious exercises are held to be an impermissible activity in schools, religion is placed at an artificial and state created disadvantage. Viewed in this light permission of such exercises for those who want them is necessary if the schools are truly to be neural in the matter of religion. And a refusal to permit religious exercises thus is seen, not as the realization of state neutrality, but rather as the establishment of a religion of secularism, or at the least, as government support of those who think that religious exercises should be conducted only in private.” 47 years later Justice Stewart’s words appear to have been all too prophetic.

Hiring of private executive director highlights hybrid relationship between city & development of WOW trail By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — City Hall and the WOW Trail have historically had a muddy relationship. The recreational trail is by all measures a city park, but some members of City Council, fearing the long-term costs associated with the maintenance of a several-miles long trail, have caused the city to keep the project at arm’s length, instead of embracing it as a municipal operation. Many city employees have offered services here and there, but the driving force behind the trail — especially its fundraising — has been, since its creation, a private, non-profit organization made up of interested citizens. This strange arrangement is being solidified this year as the non-profit organization is hiring its first paid staff member, an executive director, who is expected to pursue grants and memberships, which will benefit the development of the city amenity, as well as troubleshot issues that come up with the existing trail. Phase 1, opening this year, runs from Veterans Square downtown up to Lakeport Square. Phase 2 will connect the Veterans Square end to a similar project being developed in Belmont. Phase 3 — or phases 3, 4, 5, etc. — is by far the most challenging. It would connect Lakeport Square with Meredith and the issues surrounding its development are complex — especially as they deal with the lakeside neighborhoods or South Down Shores and Long Bay — and the politics involved is seen as contributing to lack of solid, unanimous support on City Council. Diane Hanley, president of the WOW Trail board, said many within the city, especially the Public Works and Parks, Parks and Recreation and Planning departments, have been quick to offer technical and logistical support for her organization. “The city has done a lot with the trail,” she said, but there are facets of the trail – primarily, fundraising – which she said land within the non-profit’s area of obligation. “That really is what we consider our responsibility,” said Hanley. “Honestly, I don’t think the city councilors would appreciate us asking for help with those things... We are the fundraising arm, it just seemed like our job. It just didn’t seem like something we should ask the city to do, based on our rela-
tionship.” While the WOW Trail is a city amenity, City Manager Eileen Cabanel said the private fundraising, for both initial construction and ongoing maintenance, was a compromise made in response to concerns expressed by councilors. “It was a request of some of the council members, they were concerned from the beginning that this trail would take additional staff or resources to maintain,” she said, adding that proponents offered to privately raise the funds to create and maintain the public facility. Henry Lipman serves on both City Council and the WOW Trail’s board of directors. He said the need for the non-profit to hire a part-time director, who will be paid through the organization’s fundraising efforts, is necessary due to the “fundamental structure” of the effort to build the trail, a venture he called a “public-private partnership”. “The concept here is a group of private citizens who had a civic interest to promote the development of the trail,” Lipman said. Those interested citizens saw that they could pursue their goal with fewer limitations than the city could. “It goes beyond what government can do on its own,” he said. “I don’t think it’s a bad thing that there’s a private non-profit, the tax base can only support so much.” As a non-profit, Hanley suspected they have a better chance to raise funds through private donations compared to a city department attempting to solicit donations from private individuals. She also considered it a selling point to potential donors that the WOW Trail’s maintenance will be paid using a trust fund and that city residents won’t see their tax bills rise as a result of the trail. Mayor Michael Seymour wasn’t on City Council when the seeds of the WOW Trail were sowed. He’s seen the fruits of the decade of effort, though. “If it’s 6:30 on Saturday morning, seven o’clock on Wednesday night, there’s people out there biking and walking,” he said. The city’s trails are conceived to connect with trails in neighboring towns, starting with Belmont. The concept envisions many miles of trails running through the Lakes Region. Seymour said, “Once it is wholly completed, it is going to see a lot of use.”

Blizzard trial on reckless driving charge put off to September LACONIA (AP) — A trial on a negligent driving charge has been postponed for a New Hampshire woman who is serving a one-year sentence for killing her best friend in a speed boat crash. Erica Blizzard of Laconia was convicted of negligent homicide in March in the death of Stephanie Beaudoin. Beaudoin was killed and Blizzard and another woman were injured when Blizzard’s boat crashed into the ledge wall of Diamond Island in Lake Winnipesaukee. The day after she was convicted, Blizzard was cited for driving 84 mph on Interstate 93. She was

ASEAN and countries with major interests in the area like the U.S., China, Japan, North and South Korea and Russia — expressed “deep concern” over the Cheonan’s sinking in a joint statement, a weakened version of an earlier ASEAN statement. On Wednesday, Clinton announced in the South Korean capital that the U.S. would slap new sanctions on the North to stifle its nuclear ambitions and punish it for the ship sinking. The penalties will target the country’s elite by taking aim at illicit activities, such as counterfeiting cigarettes and cash and money laundering. On Friday, the European Union said it will also consider imposing new sanctions on the North. In addition to North Korea’s behavior and its nuclear program, Clinton raised concerns about potential atomic collaboration between the North and Myanmar, also known as Burma, which is restricted by U.N. agreements. Numerous reports in past months have suggested that Myanmar’s military rulers are attempting to develop nuclear weapons with North Korean help. Clinton lambasted Myanmar for its dismal human rights record and called on its military junta to hold free and fair elections this year and release political prisoners, including Nobel Peace laureate and democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi. Clinton’s comments on Myanmar echoed those of previous U.S. administrations, but they come as President Barack Obama has made a push for expanded engagement with Southeast Asia. In an indication of increased involvement, Clinton said “the United States has a national interest” in resolving conflicting claims over the Spratly and Paracel island chains in the South China Sea, particularly between China and Vietnam. She said the disputes interfere with maritime commerce, hamper access to international waters in the area and undermine the U.N. law of the sea. Her remarks are likely to anger China, which asserts sovereignty over the whole South China Sea, but Clinton said the U.S. did not support any country’s sovereignty over the islands.

NORTH KOREA from page one The U.N. Command, however, blames North Korea and considers the sinking a violation of the cease-fire, a command official said Friday, speaking on condition of anonymity because the results of the command’s own investigation have not been released. At the Association of Southeast Asian Nations meeting in Hanoi, North Korean spokesman Ri Tong Il repeated Pyongyang’s denial of responsibility for the sinking. He said the upcoming military drills — to be conducted in the Sea of Japan off Korea’s east coast and in the Yellow Sea closer to China’s shores — were a violation of its sovereignty that harkened back to the days of 19th-century “gunboat diplomacy.” The exercises will be “another expression of hostile policy against” North Korea. “There will be physical response against the threat imposed by the United States militarily,” Ri told reporters. Clinton responded by saying the U.S. is willing to meet and negotiate with the North, but that this type of threat only heightens tensions. She added that progress in the short term seems unlikely. “It is distressing when North Korea continues its threats and causes so much anxiety among its neighbors and the larger region,” she told reporters. “But we will demonstrate once again with our military exercises ... that the United States stands in firm support of the defense of South Korea and we will continue to do so.” Shortly before Ri spoke, Clinton had lashed out against belligerent acts by the North, warning Pyongyang must reverse a “campaign of provocative, dangerous behavior” if it wants improved relations with its neighbors and the United States. She said stability in the region, particularly on the Korean peninsula, depends in large part on persuading an “isolated and belligerent” North Korea to alter course and return to nuclear disarmament talks which it pulled out of last year. Members of the U.S. and North Korean delegations did not meet at the annual ASEAN Regional Forum, which has in the past been a venue for talks between the two sides.

Bypass bridge over Gilford Ave. to get new deck BY GAIL OBER
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
GILFORD - The 80-foot bridge that goes over Gilford Avenue and is part of the Laconia Bypass will be getting a new deck next year that is partially funded by a $300,000 Highways for Life Program, said Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter yesterday. The bridge — officially listed as the U.S. 3/NH 11 Bypass at the interchange with NH 11A - is on the state’s Department of Transportation’s “Red List” and, according to Mark Richardson, the administrator of the state Bridge Design Bureau, has a deck that is in serious need of repair. “The concrete deck is in poor condition and we’ve installed debris netting under it,” Richardson said. He said the steel girders and the abutments are still in good condition and there “is no danger of bridge collapse or failure.” SALARIES from page 2 larly, and the citizens spend what little free time they have with family and recreation. A few who kept tabs on City Hall said they were suspicious because the officials were secretive, brusque and quick to act without explaining themselves. “What caught us by surprise was the amount of money they were paying people,” said Ali Saleh, who helped form the Bell Association to Stop the Abuse, whose acronym BASTA, translates to “Enough!” in Spanish. The salaries exploded into public view last week after a Los Angeles Times investigation, based on California Public Records Act requests, showed that the city payroll was bloated with all sorts of six-figure salaries: — Chief Administrative Officer Robert Rizzo made $787,637 a year, getting a series of raises since being hired in 1993 at $72,000. President Obama makes $400,000. — Assistant City Manager Angela Spaccia made $376,288 a year. — Police Chief Randy Adams earned $457,000. Hired just last year to oversee a force of fewer than 50 people, he was making 50 percent more than Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck’s $307,000. All three Bell officials resigned after a late-night meeting Thursday. “To the residents of Bell, we apologize,” Mayor Oscar Hernandez said. Now, Hernandez and the council members may be next.
He said the overall cost of the project, which, “provided that all funds are available” will go to bid in August of 2011 for construction in 2012, is projected to be $1.5-million with 80-percent of the balance coming from federal funds and 20-percent from state money. The bridge was built in 1965 and Richardson said it has been repaved a number of times but the deck has never been rebuilt. He said project includes replacing the bridge deck, guardrail, barrier membrane and asphalt. He said the process will close the bridge for about 60 hours in a row and traffic will routed around the construction through the on and off ramps. He said construction will be round-the-clock. “We’ll basically close the bridge for a weekend and do it,” Richardson said. He said there will be informational hearings as the project nears. By law, the council would have had to approve the contracts in an open session, but several residents complained that officials are loathe to explain what they are doing and quick to race through matters at public meetings with little discussion. The Times said Hernandez, Vice Mayor and Councilwoman Teresa Jacobo and Councilmen George Mirabal and Luis Artiga are paid $8,000 a year, plus about $8,000 a month for boards and commissions they sit on. The other council member, Lorenzo Velez, said he is only paid the base $8,000 salary. Earlier in the week, both Hernandez and Artiga said they deserved their salaries, adding that in addition to council meetings twice a month they are constantly on call for city business. “That would be obscene, to think we’re getting paid for only two meetings a month,” Artiga said. “But that’s only half the story.” The residents’ group is demanding that the big salaries be cut by 90 percent or that the officials resign. If they don’t resign, Saleh said, his group will initiate a recall. He gave the council until Monday’s meeting to respond. In the meantime, organizers planned to paper Bell with 12,000 flyers over the weekend, urging people to attend the meeting. City officials have declined to respond to the recall threat. A message left on City Hall’s public information line was not returned nor were messages left for Hernandez at the grocery store he owns or on Artiga’s cell phone.

13.7% from page one “This is good news for the system and its stakeholders,” said Dick Ingram, executive director of the New Hampshire Retirement System. The performance exceeded the fund’s assumed rate of return on assets of 8.5-percent. Marketable assets include all of NHRS’ portfolio except real estate and private equity investments and make up 93-percent of the system’s total assets. “What’s most important for us is that we meet the long-term goals for our investment performance that will allow us to keep the promises we’ve been entrusted with,” Ingram said in a telephone interview, Based on preliminary calculations, the fund’s assets stood at $4.8-billion on June 30, compared with $6-billion at the peak in fiscal 2007. The state retirement system serves about 53,000 active members and 24,500 pensioners. “I was certainly satisfied,” said Harold Janeway, chairman of the retirement system’s investment committee. Janeway, who is also a state senator from Webster, said it’s too early to know how the state did in relation to its peers.
“Obviously, we gave up money in the fourth quarter when the market was quite weak,” he said. “I would have been more pleased at the end of March, in other words.” Last year on June 30, the funded ratio of the pension plan was 58.3 percent, with assets at $4.4 billion. The funded ratio is measured by comparing the net assets available to pay benefits to current and future benefits owed. Ingram said an actuarial calculation will begin next month to determine total assets and liabilities, which will determine the funded ratio as of June 30 this year. Last year, he said, “probably 80 to 85-percent of the change in the funded ratio could be attributed to the asset side of the equation and a smaller portion to the liability side of the equation.’’ “It’s very difficult to predict what ... results might be for this year,” he said. The fund covers teachers, firefighters, police officers and other employees. At least anecdotally, Ingram said, it appears retirements have slowed down and people are holding onto their jobs for an extra year or two.
DEMOCRATS from page one off a fresh burst of rhetoric. John Stephen, the Manchester Republican seeking to deny Lynch a fourth term, likened the governor to a burglar, charging that after the justices “locked the front door . . . he’s trying to break in the back window.” In an editorial, the Manchester Union-Leader pictured Lynch as a kid caught stealing his sister’s candy, who didn’t learn “not to take what doesn’t belong to him.” State Senator Deborah Reynolds of Plymouth, the incumbent Democrat in District 2, who will face either Representative Fran Wendelboe of New Hampton or Jeanie Forrester of Meredith in November, said this week, “I don’t have a strong position either way.” She recalled that former Attorney General Kelly Ayotte, who is now a Republican candidate for the United States Senate, provided a legal opinion indicating that the state had a valid claim to the funds. “I respected her opinion and considered the JUA a quasi-government fund.” Reynolds acknowledged that there is “a public perception that it is not the state’s money,” but said that as she understood the Supreme Court decision “it left the door open to the state to prospectively claim a portion of the excess funds.” However, noting that she had not had an opportunity to study the Insurance Department’s proposal in light of the court’s ruling, she stressed that she had no strong opinion about how to proceed. Should Wendelboe win the GOP nomination, Reynolds will likely have to answer for her initial
support for transferring the surplus. Wendelboe criticized the proposal when Lynch introduced it and this year, as the Legislature wrestled to close $300,000 deficit, risked the ire of her fellows Republican by seeking to broker a compromise between the policyholders and the state. With the support of the policyholders, she proposed that for each three dollars distributed to policyholders, one dollar would be transferred to the state up to a maximum of $25-million, which would be applied to programs providing access to health care for uninsured and underinsured individuals and families. Representative Judie Reever (D-Laconia), though she is not running for re-election, finds herself in a particularly rough spot. She has long been wired soundly into the Democratic establishment in the state but is also the current chairman of LRGHeathcare’s board of director. Reever said she long ago recognized her predicament and notified her party’s legislative leaders that she would rescue herself from taking a position on the matter. Representative Beth Arsenault (D-Laconia), who is running for a third term, said that although she voted to take the money as part of the budget, she believes “they should have cut a deal” rather than gone to court. She said that shortly after the budget was presented, officials from LRGHealthcare and other policyholders offered to negotiate a compromise, but their overture was rejected. “It was a poor see next page

General McChrystal retires in emotional ceremony
WASHINGTON (AP) — Gen. Stanley McChrystal ended his 34-year career as an Army officer Friday in an emotional retirement ceremony at his military headquarters here, marking the last chapter of his swift and stunning fall from grace. Before a crowd of a few hundred friends, family and colleagues on the Fort McNair parade grounds under an oppressively hot July sun, McChrystal said his service didn’t end as he hoped. But he regretted few decisions he had made on the battlefield, cherished his life as a soldier and was optimistic about his future, he said. “I trusted and I still trust,” McChrystal said. “I cared and I still care. I wouldn’t have it any other way.” The former commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan was fired last month after Rolling Stone magazine published an article titled “The Runaway General” that quoted scathing remarks he and his from preceding page
mate claim to the funds by the Attorney General’s Office. He noted that the Supreme Court split threeto-two, which indicated that the issue was not easily decided one way or the other. Although he was not familiar with the changes proposed by the Insurance Department, he considered it appropriate to restructure the JUA in light of the court’s decision. “The state took a reasonable position,” he said, “and has a right to a share of excess premiums.” However, given the uncertainty surrounding the issue, Johnson emphasized “I would not vote to include that money in revenue estimates.” The next round between the policyholders and the state will be fought in a political arena when the Joint Legislative Committee on Administrative Rules (JLCAR) considers the Insurance Department’s proposal. Under the proposed rules the JUA would be effectively dissolved and replaced by a medical malpractice insurance program under the exclusive authority of the Insurance Commissioner, who would control its assets and manage its operations. The rules provide that the commissioner may terminate the program and transfer its assets to “the general fund of the state.” Proudly Serving the Lakes Region for Over 20 Years!

decision to go for it,” she said. Arsenault said that she thought the court would have settled the matter and was disappointed that the confrontation has continued. “The Supreme Court ruled and the Governor and Legislature lost,” said Representative Kate Miller (D-Meredith), who is running for re-election. “That should have been the final word. I know LRGH feels strongly and I appreciate what they’re doing,” she remarked. Referring to the effort to overcome the court decision by revamping the JUA, she said “this particular skirmish, this end-run through rule-making, politicizes something that was settled by the judicial branch.” She said that it was unfortunate that controversy about “these small pots of money” has diverted attention from the structural budget deficit. “These are desperate times,” Miller continued, “and we’re looking under every rug there is, but I’m not real comfortable about lifting this one up again.” As a member of the House Ways and Means Committee, Representative Bill Johnson (D-Gilford) said that he was persuaded that the state had a legiti-
aides made about their civilian bosses. McChrystal complained President Barack Obama had handed him “an unsellable position” on the war. The general’s closest advisers mocked other government officials, including Vice President Joseph Biden, as fools who were ignorant of the complexities of war. “Biden? Did you say, ‘Bite me?’” one aide is quoted saying. Shortly after the article was published, McChrystal was sent packing. In his 18-minute farewell tribute before the VIPstudded crowd, McChrystal made light of the episode. He warned his comrades in arms: “I have stories on all of you, photos of many, and I know a Rolling Stone reporter.” But McChrystal also sounded a more serious note, see next page

from preceding page when he talked about the pain of leaving behind unfulfilled commitments in Afghanistan and watching colleagues ensnared in the scandal. “There are misconceptions about the loyalty and service of some dedicated professionals that will likely take some time, but I believe will be corrected,” he said. Still, he said he was approaching the future with optimism. “I need to celebrate,” said McChrystal, who inspired intense loyalty among many of those who served under him. McChrystal spent much of his speech paying tribute to his wife of 33 years, Annie, who watched tearfully from the front row. He described her endless support, as he repeatedly headed off to war, and as inspiring him during dark times following the 2001 terrorist attacks. “She’s here, like she’s always been there when it matters, always gorgeous,” he said. Soldiers attending the ceremony were allowed to forgo their formal dress uniforms in lieu of combat fatigues — an apparent tribute to a war commander fresh from battle and whose career was marked by more secret operations to snatch terror suspects than by pomp and circumstance. Wearing his own Army combat uniform for the last time, the four-star general received full military honors, including a 17-gun salute and flag formations by the Army’s Old Guard.

Despite Sherrod case spotlight, Senate has again refused to pay $1.2-million to black farmers WASHINGTON (AP) — Black farmers, due $1.2 billion for a legacy of discrimination by the Agriculture Department, suffered a new and disheartening setback this week, despite the national spotlight provided by the quickly disavowed firing of a black department worker. The Senate refused again to pay the bill. Opponents say it’s a question of where the money would come from, and that’s a a major issue with an election nearing and voters up in arms about federal spending. Late Thursday, the Senate stripped $1.2 billion for the claims from an emergency spending bill, along with $3.4 billion in long-overdue funding for a settlement with American Indians who say they were swindled out of royalties by the federal government. Even the attention the Shirley Sherrod case brought to the issue of discrimination at the Agriculture Department couldn’t bring lawmakers together on a deal. Instead, Republicans and Democrats alike proclaimed their support for the funding — appeasing important constituencies — while blaming the other side for not getting anything done. The result: Thousands of black farmers and Indian landowners will keep waiting for checks that most lawmakers agree should have been written years ago. “If you say you support us, then, damn it, do it!” said John Boyd, a Virginia farmer and the lead organizer for the black farmers’ lawsuits. Sherrod’s resignation under pressure from the Agriculture Department over her comments about race, and the subsequent White House apology, brought fresh attention to the black farmers’ claims. In explaining why he acted so hastily in asking her to resign, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said he and the department were keenly sensitive to the issue of discrimination and race given the agency’s dismal track record on civil rights.
It’s a record that Vilsack routinely describes as “sordid.” For decades, minority farmers have complained of being shut out by local Agriculture offices, well after the days of blatant segregation. African-Americans, for example, complained that loan committees across the rural South were dominated by white “good ol’ boys” networks that gave the vast majority of loans and disaster aid to whites while offering scraps to blacks. Sherrod herself was a claimant in a case against the department. She had been part of a cooperative that won a $13 million settlement just last year. The department also has faced persistent complaints of racism and discrimination in its own hiring, and government audits going back two decades have found that complaints often sit for years without attention. The Government Accountability Office — an independent federal watchdog — reported in 2008, for example, that the Agriculture Department was still issuing misleading reports about discrimination and still didn’t have a firm handle on how many complaints were outstanding or how they were resolved. The auditors said their findings raised questions about whether the department took the issue seriously. Vilsack and his boss — President Barack Obama — say they do, and they have acted far more aggressively than the Bush administration to resolve minority settlements. The blockade has come in Congress. Leaders in both parties say they support the funding but things break down when they try to hash out how to pay. The money for both the black farmers and the Indian landowners was stripped from the Senate war-funding bill Thursday after the House had see next page

from preceding page passed it earlier this month. Senate Republicans objected to a variety of other Democratic priorities as well, insisting they be paid for rather than adding to the federal deficit. Democrats have offered a variety of proposals, including one package that included tax increases on oil companies and multinational companies. Republicans have objected, calling instead for spending cuts elsewhere. “This is an interesting game we’re playing around here,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said Thursday when asked about the black farmers’ money, arguing that Republicans are simply stalling the funding. A spokesman for Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., disagreed that Republicans are stalling and noted that several Democrats also voted against consideration of the whole package of add-ons, including the black farmers’ money. The final bill was passed by unanimous consent. “There was no game, only an unanimous, bipartisan vote,” said McConnell spokesman Don Stewart. The black farmers’ settlement is the second round of damages stemming from a class-action lawsuit the government originally settled in 1999. The new money is intended for people who were denied earlier payments because they missed deadlines for filing. Individual payments will depend on how many claims are successfully filed. The Agriculture Department also faces further lawsuits from Hispanic and Indian farmers. In the Indian landowners’ case, the plaintiffs claim they were swindled out of royalties overseen by the Interior Department since 1887 for things like oil, gas, grazing and timber. The settlement, 14 years in the making, must be approved by Congress. Boyd said the farmers he works with don’t care
about the machinations of Congress. All they see is a dysfunctional body that can’t get a broadly supported goal accomplished. The farmers don’t have the lobbyists and fat campaign contributions that get lawmakers’ attention, he said. Willie Adams, a 60-year-old farmer who’s been raising chickens all his life in Greensboro, Ga., said he’s had to let his farm sit idle in recent months because he doesn’t have money to invest and can’t get loans. “I don’t like it one bit,” he said of the latest delay. “Basically they just don’t want to pay the farmers.”
Tom Rath charged with DWI
PORTSMOUTH. (AP) — Portsmouth police say Republican strategist and former New Hampshire Attorney General Thomas Rath has been charged with driving while intoxicated. Police Capt. Mike Schwartz says Rath was arrested Wednesday evening after callers reported his “erratic” driving. Schwartz says police pulled over the 65-year-old Rath and gave him a field sobriety test. His attorney, Alan Cronheim, told the Portsmouth Herald he would “review the case and deal with it at the appropriate time.” Rath served as state attorney general from 1978 to 1980.

Lakes Region Real Estate Market Report / Roy Sanborn
Winnipesaukee/Winnisquam waterfront sale report for June Winnipesaukee/Winnisquam Waterfront Sales Report June was a pretty good month for Winnipesauke waterfront sales with a total of eight happy new homeowners finding a home to dock their boats on the shores of the big lake. This doesn’t quite measure up to the eleven sales last June, but the average sales price came in higher at $1.38 million compared to an average of $771,773 last June. There were five sales over $1-million last month compared to three last June. The least expensive home that sold on the lake was at 56 Braun Bay Road in Moultonborough. Originally listed at $1.2-million, it was reduced to $895,000 and sold at $830,000 after 754 days on the market. This home is a 1,660-square-foot, six room, three bedroom cottage that was completely and tastefully remodeled in 1996. The home has a nice eat in kitchen, living room with fireplace, loft area, a nice deck offering great views of the lake and mountains beyond, and a two car garage with a playroom above. The cottage sits on a .42 acre lot with 100 feet of frontage, a sandy beach, and a covered dock. I bet the new owners have enjoyed it immensely during this recent heat wave. On the other end of the price spectrum, a vintage cottage at 304 Woodlands Road in Alton with two separate lots of record totaling 2.79 acres sold well below the $2.4-million asking price at $1.9-million. The property has expansive lake views, a total of 565 feet of shorefront, and a deepwater boathouse. There is a new five bedroom septic system servicing the cottage with another five bedroom septic design included for the other lot. You can expect to see a couple new homes there in the future… The highest sale on Winnie in June was at 45 Swan Point in Moultonborough. This high end, Craftsman style lake home has 6,000 square feet of living space including 6 bedrooms, eight baths, a designer kitchen, great room with cathedral ceilings and fireplace, game room, and all the other requisite amenities expected at this price point. There is even a 700 square foot, three season pavilion sitting steps from the water on a point of land that provides gorgeous views. There is no need to go back to the main house for lunch as inside the pavilion you’ll find a kitchen, dining area, and half

bath. This home sits on a very private 1.73 acre lot with 668 feet of frontage with a sandy beach, three docks, and a boat ramp. The home was listed at $3.49-million and sold for $3.15-million after 421 days. My kind of place. Waterfront sales over the first 6 months of 2010 are ahead of last year with a total of 39 sales compared to 30 last year. The average sales price is up considerably from $839,858 in the 1st half of 2009 to $1.25 million so far this year. The total sales volume year to date comes in at $48.7 million compared to just $25 million over the same period last year. There were nine sales over a million in the 1st half of 2009 compared to nineteen so far this year. It seems that perhaps there is some confidence returning in the marketplace with buyers realizing that Winnipesaukee waterfront is a sound and safe place to invest. There was only one sale on Winnisquam in June. Located at 30 Broadview, this like new, 1,963-square-foot contemporary home built in 2005 has six rooms, three bedrooms, and two and a half bath. The home sits on a .12 acre lot with 55 feet of frontage and has a nice sandy beach with great views down the broad part of the lake. This property was listed at $399,900 and sold for $389,000 which was well below the assessed value of $468,500. Sales are definitely up in the first half of 2010 on Winnisquam with seven sales at an average sales price of $521,571 compared to just two sales in the first half of 2009 at an average of $341,250. Currently there are over 260 waterfronts for sale on Winnipesaukee including island properties and almost 30 on Winnisquam. That is one very large boat load of expensive real estate. Let’s hope the great weather continues to heat up the interest in these properties and we have a banner summer season!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Look through pictures, listen to old songs, get out the yearbook. A trip down memory lane will remind you who you are and how far you’ve come. It will also inspire you to shape your future. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You might be disappointed in the level of attention a loved one gives you, but at least this affords you some time to yourself. You are too wise to rely on others to entertain you anyhow. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A sudden shift in a relationship between two friends means you have to make a difficult choice. Or do you? Neutrality works for Switzerland. There is still a way to be friends with everyone. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 24). This birthday is a fresh start -- it’s like you press the “reset” button and whatever was holding you back before disappears. Relationships will be especially harmonious through the next five weeks. September features a sweet deal. November brings travel and excitement. You’ll be picked for an honor in February. Gemini and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 40, 30, 13 and 4.
by Darby Conley
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You will do purposeful work. It may not be related to the job you do for money. Amateur status frees you to be creative and unbound by the rules that bind others who must make a living at this. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You may be feeling shy, but don’t think for a minute that this gets you out of social obligations. You’ll show up and make more friends than anyone else. After all, people feel comfortable with those who are shy. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If you want to be creative, you must go beyond the fear of not knowing enough or being good enough. It should help you to realize that most creative people are insecure -- it comes with the territory. Man up. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Moments spent disliking your job or not knowing what to do are wasted time. Change your inner dialogue about work. You are a healer and a helper. When you are at peace with this, your talents will be put to good use. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There will be a funhouse effect on your day. It’s like you wait in line to enter a great hall of mirrors. And while you’re inside trying to find your way out, you may wonder why anyone would pay for such an illusion. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are many things, but one thing you are not is a faker. In a world of posers, you know what you know, from the inside all the way out. You’re a person of substance, and that’s what everyone notices now. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). What is going on in the black box of this person’s mind? You may never know, and for some reason that might bother you now. What’s important is that you know

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, July 24, 2010— Page 17
––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Saturday, July 24, the 205th day of 2010. There are 160 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 24th, 1959, during a visit to Moscow, Vice President Richard Nixon engaged in his famous “Kitchen Debate” with Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev. On this date: In 1847, Mormon leader Brigham Young and his followers arrived in the Great Salt Lake Valley in present-day Utah. In 1866, Tennessee became the first state to be readmitted to the Union after the Civil War. In 1929, President Herbert Hoover proclaimed the Kellogg-Briand Pact, which renounced war as an instrument of foreign policy. In 1937, the state of Alabama dropped charges against four of the nine young black men accused of raping two white women in the “Scottsboro Case.” In 1969, the Apollo 11 astronauts — two of whom had been the first men to set foot on the moon — splashed down safely in the Pacific. In 1974, the Supreme Court unanimously ruled that President Richard Nixon had to turn over subpoenaed White House tape recordings to the Watergate special prosecutor. In 1975, an Apollo spacecraft splashed down in the Pacific, completing a mission which included the first-ever docking with a Soyuz capsule from the Soviet Union. In 1980, comedian-actor Peter Sellers died in London at 54. One year ago: Trying to tamp down a national uproar over race, President Barack Obama acknowledged using unfortunate words in declaring that Cambridge, Mass., police had “acted stupidly” in arresting black scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr., adding he’d invited the Harvard professor and Sgt. James Crowley, the arresting officer, for “a beer here in the White House.” Today’s Birthdays: Movie director Peter Yates is 81. Actress Jacqueline Brookes is 80. Actor John Aniston (TV: “Days of Our Lives”) is 77. Political cartoonist Pat Oliphant is 75. Comedian Ruth Buzzi is 74. Actor Mark Goddard is 74. Actor Dan Hedaya is 70. Actor Chris Sarandon is 68. Comedian Gallagher is 64. Actor Robert Hays is 63. Actor Michael Richards is 61. Actress Lynda Carter is 59. Movie director Gus Van Sant is 58. Country singer Pam Tillis is 53. Actor Paul Ben-Victor is 48. Actor Kadeem Hardison is 45. Actress-singer Kristin Chenoweth is 42. Actress Laura Leighton is 42. Actor John P. Navin Jr. is 42. Actress-singer Jennifer Lopez is 41. Basketball player-turnedactor Rick Fox is 41. Actor Eric Szmanda is 35. Actress Rose Byrne is 31. Actress Elisabeth Moss is 28. Actress Anna Paquin is 28. TV personality Bindi Irwin is 12.

Page 18 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, July 24, 2010
Dear Annie: I’ve been dating “Bob” for almost two years, and we moved in together a year ago. For the most part, it’s been OK. Eight months into our relationship, Bob gave me an STD that I will have for the rest of my life. He insists he never cheated, and although my doctor seemed skeptical, I decided it was possible he’d had the STD before he met me and just didn’t know. However, Bob has done other things that disturb me. I found out he was looking at online adult websites. He also checks out Internet porn and lies about it. I know he used to go to strip clubs, but he claims he doesn’t do that anymore. Bob says he loves me and we will never split up. But when I was working, he’d call twice a day, and it felt like he was checking up on me. If I go out with my friends, he jokingly asks how many guys I picked up. He seems very insecure about our relationship. I do love him, but sometimes I feel as if I am dating him only to have a roof over my head. I’m currently unemployed, and moving out would be impossible. Do you think I should dump him now before something drastic happens, like he proposes or I get knocked up? Or should I enjoy my time with him and see whether the situation changes a year or so down the road? -- Bummed and Confused Dear Confused: We aren’t sure why you say you love Bob when you would rather break up than risk his proposing. We think you are staying for the rent money and are reluctant to deal with it. It’s unlikely Bob is going to improve with age. Start saving your pennies, and move out as soon as possible. Dear Annie: I seem to be having a slight problem with my wife. She doesn’t remember anything I tell her, whether it’s about a withdrawal from our bank account or asking her to stop at the store on her way home. I’ll say something to her, remind her later via e-mail or text message, and within a few
hours -- poof! -- it’s totally forgotten. But she has no problem remembering things at work or regarding her friends and family. She even performs at a local theater and memorizes lots of lines. Is this worth making an issue over? It’s getting frustrating and seems to imply a total lack of respect for me. What should I do? -- The Camel’s Straw Dear Straw: People are easily distracted and overburdened with information these days, and things can slide out of their heads. This could be why your wife isn’t filing away your comments in her memory bank. It requires more concentration than she is capable of. However, if she manages to remember everything else, she may simply be tuning you out -- not an uncommon occurrence with married couples. Talk to her about it. Dear Annie: I was struck by the letter from “Appreciate the Cleaning Ladies,” who said her clients hadn’t given her a raise in 10 years. While I agree with your response, I have a different take on it. This person is a business owner and an independent contractor, yet sees herself as an employee of these households. She needs to understand that she alone has the responsibility to set her rates, choose her clients, take vacations and give herself raises. Her clients expect her to do this for herself. If you went to get a manicure, you wouldn’t tell the manicurist you were going to pay them more than the price they had already established. As an independent contractor myself, I know it is hard to tell clients you are increasing your rates, but it is a necessary part of the job. Even if she loses a couple of clients, she will make up the income. Ten years is a long time to go without a pay increase, and she deserves a big one. -- Boise, Idaho

Tony Allen signs with Memphis Grizzlies
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Grizzlies guard Tony Allen said Friday he’s ready to bring defensive toughness and championship experience to his new team as it guns for the playoffs this season. Allen signed a multiyear contract with the Grizzlies two weeks ago, leaving the Eastern Conference champion Boston Celtics after six seasons. He appeared in two NBA Finals against the Lakers, winning the title in 2008 and losing this past season. Allen has averaged 7.2 points per game and 1.04 steals per game in his career. The 6-foot-4 guard is valued for his ability to cover the other team’s best player. Last season playoffs saw Allen defend Kobe Bryant, Vince Carter and
Dwyane Wade. “I’m definitely going to try to start early defining a role, try to bring some sort of toughness to the ballclub,” Allen said. “It’s obvious I have experience and I’m just looking forward to just letting that marinate amongst the players that’s in this locker room.” Allen joins a young team with a crowded backcourt. O.J. Mayo and Mike Conley are projected as starters, with Allen, Sam Young and first round picks Greivis Vasquez and Xavier Henry as possible contributors. Allen, who was drafted by Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace when Wallace was with Boston, says he considers his arrival in Memphis as a fresh start.

SEATTLE (AP) — The battered Boston Red Sox are slowly making their way back. Dustin Pedroia is hitting indoors and taking grounders outside, the next steps to the second baseman returning from a broken left foot. The 2008 AL MVP, who has been out since June 26, played catch on the field without his walking boot hours before Boston welcomed recuperated right-hander Josh Beckett back to its rotation on Friday night against Seattle. Manager Terry Francona said the Red Sox hope to have Pedroia looked at by a doctor in Southern California early next week during a series at the Los Angeles Angels. Boston’s doctors want to examine Pedroia when the team returns home on Thursday before deciding whether to accelerate his recovery plan. “They keep saying he’s unique.
Maybe he is,” Francona said of Pedroia’s healing powers. Pedroia is hitting .292 in 73 games. The Red Sox entered Friday 10-11 without their No. 2 hitter and twotime All-Star, and seven games behind the first-place New York Yankees in the AL East. Bill Hall, who has been filling in at second base, made a crucial error in the ninth inning Thursday night trying to rush his throw to first base on what could have been a game-ending double play. Seattle’s two tying runs scored on the play, completing a five-run rally that sent the game into extra innings. Boston ultimately won in 13 innings. Francona praised the veteran Hall, who also homered Thursday, for doing “a pretty good job” in Pedroia’s absence. But the manager added, “You can’t replace Pedroia. That’s just not how it works.”
