When there’s a nip in the air in the Lakes Region, thoughts turn to ice fishing, so few were surprised in January 1962, to see a bunch of men going out onto frozen Lake Opechee with ice auger, lines and… surveyors. Up from Senator McIntyre’s house on the

western shore the augers were put to work drilling not one or two, but seven evenly spaced holes out on the thick, snowless surface. Then, guided by the surveyors from Ainsworth Associates led by engineer Bob Rose, the men drilled 28 more holes, the last group of seven being near the powerline tower off

The Friends of the Dover Public Library are pleased to sponsor a living history presentation by Adam Boyce as “The Old Country Fiddler: Charles Ross Taggert” on Tuesday evening, October 16 at 7pm. Through a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council, Adam Boyce will portray the Vermont-based,, Chautauqua-style entertainer Charles Ross Taggert (1871—1953) near the end of his career, c. 1936. As Taggert, Boyce will share recollections on his life, with some live fiddling and humorous sketches interspersed. A fiddler, piano player, humorist, singer and ventriloquist, Taggert gave over 4,000 performances in nearly all of the 48 states at that time. His routines were adaptable to any circumstance and audience, and he could easily vary any program with his repertoire of hundreds of songs, stories, and caricatures. Refreshments will follow. For more information, call 603-516-6050.

Barn Preservation Workshop & Tour

Goss Farm in Rye, Sat., October 13, 9:30am – 2:00pm Is your barn’s roof in need of repair? Is a corner post failing? Or is a sill rotting? If so, come to Rye to learn how to address these common barn issues on Saturday, October 13th. Noted timber framer, Ian Blackman of Ian Blackman LLC, Restoration & Preservation, will lead an investigation of the Goss Barn focusing on framing issues and roof repairs/ replacements. The Goss Barn, a 2011 listee to the NH State Register of Historic Places, is owned by the Town of Rye and is being restored as part of an effort with the Rye Conservation Commission to preserve the 10 acres now under a conservation easement for use as a community farm with a farm stand and program space in the barn. The early 19th century barn is in need of some major repairs to its foundation, scribe rule frame (early framing technique), and roof. Ian will focus this workshop primarily on the scribe rule framing issues and the roof repairs he will be doing prior to the installation of a new metal roof. Ian will also touch on other common problems of antique barns including: foundation problems, drainage issues, sill deterioration,

framing failures, and siding concerns. The morning workshop will be followed by a boxed lunch from 11:30am-12pm at the farm. After lunch, participants will enjoy a guided tour of two additional historic barns in Rye. This is a great opportunity to explore and assess historic barns with an expert! There will be ample time for Q & A with Ian. Wear sturdy shoes and bring a flashlight. Members - $35 Nonmembers - $45 New Member Special - $55 (workshop + 1yr. membership). Lunch is included. Advanced registration required. Space is limited so sign up early! The event is held rain or shine. To register, call the Pres-

Children’s Future Threatened





(603) 527-8779

Our Story The Weirs Times was first published in 1883 by Mathew H. Calvert. The newspaper, then named Calvert’s Weirs Times and Tourists’ Gazette, was published until Mr. Calvert’s death in 1902. One of the most remarkable features of the publication was a map of Lake Winnipesaukee which occupied the center spread of the paper. Readers will find the same map reprinted on the center pages of this, and every issue. The new Weirs Times was re-established in 1992 and strives to maintain

To The Editor: Isn’t the most important reason to bring children into this world to nurture them, protect them, and help them become successful citizens? Isn’t this what family and society is all about? According to the long term outlook from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) the stark reality is that President Obama has put us in a dire financial situation that our children, grandchildren, and unborn children will have to deal with when they’re our age. Each households share of the federal debt will increase to $382,000 over the next 25 years which is an additional $287,000 compared to current levels. Over the next 20 years high debt levels will decrease the US cumulative economic outlook by about $29 trillion. By 2025 mandatory health care spending, social security, and the interest on the debt will consume 100% of all the revenue received by the federal government. This means no money for education, infrastructure, defense, or countless over federal government programs. By 2037 the federal government will spend $2.5 trillion a year (greater than 25% of the entire budget) in interest payments. The on the record federal debt not including entitlements is greater than the value of all the goods and services produced in the US. The

CBO predicted that the growing debt will create a sudden crisis where investors will lose confidence in the federal government’s ability to manage debt meaning that the federal government will no longer be able to borrow at affordable rates. Obama’s budget will increase our debt from $16 trillion to $25 trillion in 10 years. What are we doing to our children and grandchildren? If your spouse, neighbor, or teacher was doing this to your children what would you think? You would be disgusted as you would fight to protect your children. It’s time to realize that the future of our children is being threatened by the greatest political child abuser in modern history! Brett Collopy Farmington, NH.

Don’t Change To the Editor: In response to the German summer resident who despises the Weirs Times, my husband and I find your newspaper refreshing. The mainstream media is biased and liberal.

Schedule Conflicts To The Editor: Last week the Laconia Daily Sun published a letter from Ms. Gail C. Morrison who lives in Sanborton. As often happens with letters to the editors, some people tell only half the truth. There’s an old saying, “A half truth is a whole lie.” Shame on you Gail. Gail Morrison’s October 2, 2012 letter bemoaned the fact that state senator Jeanie Forrester will not speak at a forum in Sanborton on October 18th, but that the senator is coming to our Lakes Region Tea Party meeting on October 17th at 7 pm at the Moultonborough Public Library. What Ms. Morrison failed to mention in her letter is that Senator Forrester booked an out-of-town appearance on the 18th months ago. Many months ago I tried to get Senator Forrester to speak at one of our meetings. What I discovered, much to my surprise, is that she filled her schedule each week going to many events in District Two to connect with her constituents. I thought that elected officials like Jeanie just pressed the flesh as an election drew near. Suffice it to say, Jeanie is a rare elected official that invests vast amounts of her personal time to report back to those she represents no matter their political persuasion. What bewilders me is why Ms. Morrison has See mailboat on 23

Predicting The Seasons

by Brendan Smith Weirs Times Editor

Fall is always an interesting season here in New Hampshire as it gets people into thinking about the winter. It’s that calm before the storm or, like last year, the calm before the calm. We never know what we are going to get, but we spend a lot of time trying to figure it out beforehand. Of course, global warming alarmists will tell us that last year was a sign of things to come and all our winters will be as mild as last year. I’ve heard this one too many times in the past. Usually we end up getting a snowy and cold winter right after a mild one and then global warming becomes climate change. Winters have been very mild or very cold since forever, so I don’t worry about it much. Still, I do like to play the game of trying to figure out what the coming winter will bring since, when the weather starts to get colder, there isn’t a lot else to do around here. A lot of people turn to the Old Farmer’s Almanac which is right about as much as it is wrong; just a little bit better than the TV weatherman. Still, there are a few interesting wonders of nature that old farmers, who I guess write these books, use in trying to anticipate the coming winter. For example: “If a mole digs its hole two and a half

feet deep, expect a severe winter; if two feet, not so severe; if a foot, a mild winter.” I’m sure that there is some credence to this but, seriously, who has time to find a mole hole and, if I did, I don’t usually carry around a measuring tape with me. Still, I believe in these signs of nature as an accurate predictor, but hard to really keep track of. As the founder of FATSO (Flatlanders Adjusting To Solitary Oblivion) a winter support group I started years ago to help new transplants to New Hampshire survive their first few winters here after moving from a more urban landscape, I devised my own “adages” to help the uninitiated in getting a handle on figuring out signs for the coming season. Coming from New York, we had a few sayings that helped us determine what was coming. “Red sky at night, sailors delight. Red sky at morning, something is on fire and traffic will be tied up for hours.” “You can tell it will soon be spring when wool socks go on sale at the mall.” I took that same twisted philosophy in order to explain to others, like me, what these strange New Hampshire sayings mean. “If the groundhog sees his shadow on February 2, six more weeks of winter will follow.” (Winter’s going to be just as long as it was last year no matter what happens.) “Onion skins very thin, mild winter coming in; onion skins thick and tough, coming winter cold and rough.” (If you have a really tasty pastrami and onion sandwich in the fall, you won’t have much roof raking to do this winter.) “When spiders weave their webs by noon, fine weather is coming soon.”

(I tell FATSO members to impress unexpected guests to your home with your meteorological skills when you haven’t cleaned it in a while.) I even came up with a couple of original sayings. “When the signs of the roll of the lobster begin to fade then winter is on its way.” “When the muddying rains of the spring be sent then eight dollars at the car wash must be spent.” I also try to make FATSO members realize that trying too hard to figure all of these seasonal signs of nature can be a problem as well. “If you sit by your window and track the migration of birds over the course of several weeks you will suddenly realize that you don’t have a life and you need to get out more.” I could go on with more but I don’t want to bore you and don’t have any more ideas anyway. Other members of FATSO have been gathering info for a Flatlander’s Almanac which we hope to have out for the next planting season, whenever that is. Besides great new sayings like this we will also provide a whole year’s worth of weather predictions. A day by day forecast that we will determine by spinning a big wheel. We figure our odds are about as good as the Old Farmer’s Almanac. This winter you are on your own. Now I am about to go out and enjoy this beautiful fall day because, if my itchy left arm and that fat caterpillar I saw this morning are any indication; it won’t last long.

Desperate Dems Hide Behind Big Bird


-- When our Fox News team left for Afghanistan last week, there was a palpable sense of imminent calamity in the air. Gloom by Oliver North and doom news Syndicated Columnist from here is now a staple in our so-called mainstream media. Reports of “green-on-blue,” or insider, attacks by our Afghan allies against American and NATO troops are depicted as a sure sign of mission failure and portend of worse to come. Commentaries, columns and “analysis” from “experts” urging our political and military leaders to “get out now” routinely grace our print and broadcast outlets. The terms “betrayed,” “cut our losses” and “minimize failure” appear regularly in the press, and “lost cause” is now the media watchword for Afghanistan. Defeatism of this sort is nothing new. Prognostications of failure in American military campaigns

predate the founding of our republic. The “wrong war, wrong strategy,” “no way to win” and “not worth the cost” arguments didn’t begin with Vietnam; they have been commonplace in contemporaneous critiques of every military endeavor in our nation’s history. So, too, have been calls for the heads of those leading these fights. “Fire them all” is hardly a new mantra for American military leaders -- or the politicians who send them to war. In the 1750s -- during what we call the French and Indian War -- British and Colonial troops set out to drive French forces from North America. They were thwarted by an alliance between the French and Native American tribes. During a disastrous campaign to capture Fort Duquesne -- now Pittsburgh -- the BritishAmerican effort was repulsed in part by unconventional warfare attacks perpetrated by Indians who were initially thought to be our allies. Thank goodness, the widely publicized failure didn’t destroy the future military career of an otherwise promising young See north on 21

Mitt Romney sure ruffled a lot of feathers over his proposal to eliminate taxpayer funding for governmentsponsored TV. As soon by Michelle Malkin as the GOP Syndicated Columnist presidential candidate singled out PBS for cuts during the presidential debate in Denver, the hysterical squawking commenced. Left-leaning celebrities immediately erupted on Twitter. “WOW!!! No PBS!! WTF how about cutting congress’s stuff leave big bird alone,” Whoopi Goldberg fumed. “Mitt is smirky, sweaty, indignant and smug with an unsettling hint of hysteria. And he wants to kill BIG BIRD,” actress Olivia Wilde despaired. “Who picks on Big Bird!!! #bulliesthatswho,” actress Taraji Henson chimed in. Social media activists called for a Million Muppet March on the National Mall to “show your support for Big Bird, Muppets, PBS and all that is good.” The grammar-challenged operatives of George Soros-funded Media Matters for America lectured “right-wing media” to be “more concerned with Americans having jobs insteading (sic) of obsessing whether or not Big Bird has one.” Indignant PBS, which employs not-so-neutral debate moderator Jim Lehrer, issued a statement decrying Romney’s failure to “understand the value the American people place on public broadcasting and the outstanding return on investment the system delivers to our nation.” And President Obama, awakened from his

beatdown-induced stupor, scurried the next morning to the safe confines of a campaign rally to mock Romney for “getting tough on Big Bird.” The kiddie character kerfuffle is a manufactured flap that may play well to liberals in Hollywood and Washington. But beyond the borders of La-La Land, desperate Democrats who cling childishly to archaic federal subsidies look like cartoonish buffoons. Let’s face it: The Save Big Bird brigade is comically out of touch with 21st-century realities. In 1967, when Congress passed the Public Broadcasting Act, family options for quality children’s programming were severely limited. More than four decades later, there’s a vibrant marketplace for educational broadcasting -- on radio, TV and the Internet -- that teems with furry friends and information-packed shows. PBS speaks of itself with cultish self-reverence: “For more than 40 years,” the government network chastised Romney, “Big Bird has embodied the public broadcasting mission -- harnessing the power of media for the good of every citizen, regardless of where they live or their ability to pay. Our system serves as a universally accessible resource for education, history, science, arts and civil discourse.” In reality, of course, PBS affiliates have become increasingly corporatized. As GOP Sen. Jim DeMint noted last year, franchises like Sesame Street “are multimillion-dollar enterprises capable of thriving in the private market. According to the 990 tax form all nonprofits are required to file, Sesame Workshop President and CEO Gary Knell received $956,513 -- nearly a million dol-

Syrian Conflict Shadows UN Session UNITED NATIONS —Syria’s

ongoing civil war has shadowed the current UN General Assembly both with the danger of by John J. Metzler a w i d e n i n g Syndicated Columnist regional humanitarian crisis and the challenge of a politically deadlocked UN Security Council. The eighteen month conflict between the Damascus rulers and a wide coalition of opposition forces has seen over 20,000 people killed, mostly civilians. Equally is has triggered a major refugee crisis impacting not only inside Syria but on neighboring states such as Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey. “With no end to the fighting in sight, with serious food and medicine shortages and with winter approaching, it was high time to discuss at the highest level what the needs are and how we can bring help to people who need, it,” advised Kristalina Georgieva, Europe’s Commissioner for humanitarian aid. During a high level meeting hosted by the European Union and the Kingdom of Jordan, UN member states were updated on the tragic humanitarian toll as a consequence of the widening violence inside Syria. Significantly the EU is the largest donor of emergency relief with a combined total of $287 million in aid from both member states and the European Commission. Commissioner Georgieva told correspondents that as a result of the conflict the “flames are spreading to other areas beyond Syria,” and while countries need to do more, relief agencies “need more access in Syria” where both sides must allow humanitarian access. Headlines from Homs, Hama and Aleppo, have highlighted what she later told this writer “is largely an urban war, “and thus “delivery of humanitarian aid is difficult.” The UN’s humanitarian chief Valerie Amos put the matter into wider context. Since March, when about one million people were affected by the fighting, the number has jumped to 2.5

million displaced persons. These figures come from a population of 22 million. The number of refugees leaving Syria stands at 300,000, mostly fleeing to the neighboring Jordan, Lebanon, or Turkey. Tragically according to the UN High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) that number could double by year’s end.. In other words the crisis is worsening. While 90,000 refugees are currently in Turkey, the Ankara government is quickly expanding reception centers which are expected to hold up to 130,000 people. I’ve been discussing the sanguinary symptoms of the Syrian revolt; the root cause to solving the problem remains political. But barring a swift victory of the Free Syrian Army and a gaggle of opposition forces, including some hard-line Islamic jihadists over the Assad dictatorship, the paradox returns to possible outside military intervention. The fifteen member UN Security Council remains dangerously deadlocked in an East/ West divide where even tepid resolutions against the Damascus regime have been blocked by Moscow and Beijing. During the past year Russia and China have used their rare double-veto on three separate occasions. German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle advised the General Assembly, “To this very day, the Security Council has failed to live up to its responsibility for people in Syria. The deadlock in the Security Council must not continue. Every day, the violence perpetrated by the Bashar al‑Assad regime is escalating.” French President Francois Hollande implored, “We have the duty to take action. To take action together because it is a matter of urgency… How can we accept the UN’s paralysis?” Hollande called for “France to recognize, once it’s formed, the interim government representing the new Syria…I demand that the United Nations immediately provide the Syrian people with all the assistance, all the support they’re asking for, particularly for the liberated areas to be protected and humanitarian assistance provided to the refugees.”

Speaking of “liberated areas” and safe zones may hold a rhetorical appeal for France, but who will send troops to protect the “buffer zones”? I asked Commissioner Georgieva whether she supports such a plan to help

deliver humanitarian aid? She carefully responded that the EU would only favour such an arrangement if it were supported unanimously by the Security Council. That’s means Russian

Capital Gains Taxes One of the many false talking points of the Obama administration is that a rich man like Warren Buffett should not be paying a lower by Thomas Sowell tax rate than Syndicated Columnist his secretary. But anyone whose earnings come from capital gains usually pays a lower tax rate. How are capital gains different from ordinary income? Ordinary income is usually guaranteed. If you work a certain amount of time, you are legally entitled to the pay that you were offered when you took the job. Capital gains involve risk. They are not guaranteed. You can invest your money and lose it all. Moreover, the year when you receive capital gains may not be the same as the years when they were earned. Suppose I spend ten years

writing a book, making not one cent from it in all that time. Then, in the tenth year, when the book is finished, I may sell it to a publisher who pays me $100,000 in advance royalties. Am I the same as someone who has a salary of $100,000 that year? Or am I earning $10,000 a year for ten years’ work? It so happens that the government will tax me the same as someone who earns $100,000 that year, because my decade of work on the book cannot be documented. But the point here is that it is really a capital gain, and it illustrates the difference between a capital gain and ordinary income. Then there is the risk factor. There is no guarantee to me that a publisher will actually accept the book that I have worked on for ten years -- and there is no guarantee to the publisher that the public will buy enough copies of the book to repay whatever I might be paid when the contract is signed.

Yours truly and Stacey on top of North Hancock. From reading The 4000-Footers of the White Mountains by Smith & Dickerman, I learned that Hancock Mountain was formerly known as Pemigewasset Peak and in the 1870’s was named in honor of the patriot signer of the Declaration of Independence though Dr. Edward Tuckerman contended that the name in fact honored a 19th century lumberman. We were hoping for a chance to hike together above treeline one more time this season. But after looking at the wet forecast I decided instead of canceling our hike we should tackle something with less exposure and I suggested the Hancocks. I reasoned that sometimes you just have to hike in the rain. At least the weather wouldn’t be too cold and we’d get plenty of exercise during this 9.8 mile trek over two 4,000 footers. Kris, Sharon, Sarah and Stacey met in New London and then they picked me up at the New Hampton park and ride at 8 am. The slapping windshield wipers reminded me that it was likely going to be a wet feet kind of day. We drove north on I-93

to Lincoln and then up the Kancamagus Highway until we pulled into the parking lot just after the hairpin turn. We shoved three dollars into an envelope, put it in the money slot and put the proof of payment stub on the dash. At 9 am, in the drizzling rain we put on our raincoats and our backpacks that were heavy with extra dry warm clothing. To reach the Hancock Notch Trailhead we walked across the Kanc at the middle of the hairpin’s curve after passing thorugh a gate that has a warning meaning something like don’t become road kill (well, that is what I remember). The trail begins on one of Henry’s many railroad grades and it is plen-

ty wide and easy—good for warming up. At the first brook crossing we reached there was a tree lying across that made for a nice hand railing while we hopped on wet rocks. We marched on, chatting away about work and many things in the dreary morning light. We felt like no time had passed when we reached the Cedar Brook Trail. Lots of brook crossings and boggy places make up this trail and I was amazed by the low water. My previous trips have always included wading but not this trip. Even the last crossing before the beginning of the Hancock Loop Trail was easily crossed by stepping from rock to rock. We kept moving; it was the only way to keep comSee patenaude on 19

Just returned from my Advocates Daily radio show (9-10 am at WEZS AM1350 and wezs. com.). My by Niel Young Advocates Columnist Friday now consists of writing this column, then send ad schedule for Saturday show (8:05Noon) same locations as Daily. Then it is time for â&#x20AC;&#x153;show prepâ&#x20AC;? for Saturday. One caller who came to America 34 years ago from the Middle East and is an American citizen, at one point admitted that she would answer that she is voting for Obama to protect her safety. Four more years of Obama we will all claim that we voted for him. What a sad state of affairs. I rejected Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hope and Changeâ&#x20AC;? and am not interested in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Forwardâ&#x20AC;?. ******** Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not really a psychiatrist, but play one on radio. What is Obama thinking? He shows up at the first debate last Wednesday in Denver. Mitt Romney took it to him, and he recoiled into a dark place. No sympathy from me; he has the title of President of the U.S. Mr. Obama, you really should be competent enough to defend your legislation and laws passed to force Americans into your â&#x20AC;&#x153;hope and change.â&#x20AC;? Instead, we were treated to a 51 year old man babbling in front of 60 million people. Analyze why Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission in life is to punish this country, specifically white Americans. My fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grandfather was an Indian living in Lancaster. His wife was Betsy Remick, just off the boat. History tells us the Irish need not apply.The American Indians placed

on reservations, and later given gambling casinos. Jewish immigrants made America home. They took care of themselves. Most of the Jews I know, personally or through history, have been good Americans, and they have been successful, while caring for their own- not using public assistance. The US has some bad history when it comes to Black Americans, who I think we all agree were not always treated fairly in this country since the 1700â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Remember the 1950â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and 60â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s? You and I had nothing to do with the mistreatment of Black Americans. As I watched the black and white television evening news I knew that my fellow Americans of color did not deserve what was happening to them! FAST FORWARD: Why is Obama so angry? The most outspoken President regarding â&#x20AC;&#x153;social injusticeâ&#x20AC;? for a person who did not live in this country (Kenya), or his time in Hawaii where there was not a problem with Black vs. White. Obama has been the most outspoken President for the Gay Agenda. AND he promotes abortion! I recall a fellow in Germany who hated Jews â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to the point he wanted to kill all of the Jews. A gas chamber was his choice of mass elimination. My father and hundreds of thousands of Americans went to war on foreign soil to put an end to this genocide, and today, Our Dear Leader is getting even with America and Israel. How could anyone vote for this anti-American American president? ******** Emailer: â&#x20AC;&#x153;This analysis of race needs to go further. Blacks were brought here in the 1600â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as slaves. They were obviously badly

mistreated. That needs to be noted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I make no excuses for race hustling done by Sharpton and Jackson. Black Americans need to stop being victims and start being proactive about their futures. They need new spokes people.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;A manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s admiration for absolute government is proportionate to the contempt he feels for those around him.â&#x20AC;? - Alexis de Tocqueville (1805-1859) French historian. It is painfully obvious that this French citizen traveling around our United States knew more about the future of America than we did in 2008. ******** The following is a section of a text from 2002. Illinois State Senator Obama speaking in a church at a 2002 Martin Luther King Jr. Day memorial service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The philosophy of nonviolence only makes sense if the powerful can be made to recognize themselves in the powerless. It only makes sense if the powerless can be made to recognize themselves in the powerful. You know, the principle of empathy gives broader meaning, by the way, to Dr. Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s philosophy of nonviolence. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve noticed, but rich people are all for nonviolence. Why wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t they be? Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got what they want. They want to make sure people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take their stuff. But the principle of empathy recognizes that there are more subtle forms of violence to which we are answerable. The spirit of empathy condemns not only the use of fire hoses and attack dogs to keep people down but also accountants and tax loopholes to keep people down.

Tom Kudzma holds the Paul Kinney Trophy in 2012. not only that race, but the premier event for Heavyweight Singles to be the first recipient of the Berry Shea Trophy. Jeremiah J. Shea was a champion sculler in the days before World War II, and later coached such national and international champions as Sy Cromwell and Don Spero at the Riverside Boat Club. These and many others represented the U.S. in the Olympic Games and World Championships. Shea was present to award the new Trophy to Lea, and was quoted as praising Lake Opechee: “It’s the most beautiful course I’ve ever seen.” Accompanying Shea was an old friend and wrestling celebrity Steve “Crusher” Casey, himself no mean sculler during Shea’s heyday. The most spectacular race of the day was the Senior Eights. Four crews competed: Brockville, New York A.C., Union, and West Side, with Brockville the leaders in that order. So impressed was the Committee with this race and Paul Kinney’s dedication to rowing and the NEARA Championships, that they afterwards inaugurated the Paul Kinney Trophy for Eights; subse-

quent winners included the cream of American Rowing on the university, club, and Olympic Development Camp levels. The Laconia Difference Many of those who rowed at Laconia in 1962 formed the base of North American rowing for many years. They were there for the “new” 2000 meter distance which was soon adopted by most regattas, including the U.S. Nationals. They became accustomed to the International “FISA” Rules of Racing, which better prepared them for the Olympics. The rowing world found that Laconia had not only the resources, but also the will to run a first class event from scratch. Coaches and the officials of U.S. Rowing also took notice of Laconia’s facilities and willingness to go “all out.” This led to the “Laconia Plan” crews of 1964 in preparation for the Olympic Trials; this three week camp was the precursor to the present “Camp System” for selecting crews - men and women - for the U.S. Olympic Team. The NEARA again selected Laconia’s Lake See regatta on 15

The primary goal of the new business unit is to offer a broad spectrum of support in the areas of total quality project management,

business process improvement, product research, business analytics, and data management and manipulation – all areas that Joncas will be responsible for managing in his new role as assistant vice president of business technology services.




Joncas graduated from the University of Lowell (now UMass Lowell) with a Bachelors of Science degree in Electrical Engineering. He also holds a mini MBA in Global Technology from Tufts Gordon Institute, and has undergone extensive training in total quality management, continuous process improvement, project management, leadership, and several programming languages. Joncas is an active member of his local community, having served as a past school board member and building committee chair in Hampstead, as well as board member of the Spinnaker Cove Yacht Club in Laconia.

We retreated back to the trail out of the wind and put on warmer clothing and we drank and ate a little more. The ups and downs on the ridge between the peaks made for a nice walk. The trail through the dark woods felt spooky and sometimes magical. On top of South Hancock we paused long enough to take a few photos before beginning the steep descent. We picked our way down the trail See patenAUde on 20

CafĂŠ and enjoyed some hot creamy mushroom soup and nachos. The warm food tasted good and it felt good. We also stopped by the Mountain Wanderer Map and Book Store. Sharon and Sarah bought guide books written by the owner, Steven Smith and he graciously signed and wrote notes encouraging them to keep hiking.

THE WEIRS TIMES & THE COCHECO TIMES, Thursday, October 11, 2012 north from 6

Colonial officer named George Washington. Washington’s eventual success as the commander of the Continental Army during the American Revolution is remembered fondly today. But in the long fight from Boston in 1775 to the British surrender at Yorktown in 1781, his military prowess was anything but certain. He was roundly criticized for failing to deal effectively with a lethal Tory, or loyalist, insurgency behind the lines. The disastrous winter of 177778 at Valley Forge nearly finished his army. And when Benedict Arnold, one of his most successful subordinates, betrayed the cause and defected to the British, there was a chorus in Congress demanding Washington’s replacement and insisting that we “settle our dispute with the Crown” and sue for peace. That same sense of defeatism was pervasive during the War of 1812, particularly after President James Madison was forced to flee our new capital when the British burned Washington. Though Francis Scott Key was inspired to record in verse that our flag still was flying over Baltimore’s Inner Harbor after a vicious bombardment by the most powerful navy in the world at the time, there were others in Congress and the press who wanted us to abandon the fight because we could not win.

Two centuries have changed little about the appeal of defeatism among certain of our political and media elites. Though “jingoistic journalism” is derided in our institutions of higher learning, the portent of potential failure is a far more frequent theme in much of the reporting on the American Expeditionary Force in 1917 and the bloody campaigns of World War II. The premise that Americans no longer can win wars was expanded during the Korean War and perfected by the time my brother and I arrived in Vietnam. Now, 11 years to the week since U.S. troops arrived in Afghanistan, the storyline that “America’s longest war is unwinnable” has become pervasive throughout our homeland. There is a minor problem with this narrative. The American, allied and Afghan troops we are accompanying didn’t get the memo. They stubbornly refuse to admit defeat, persist in believing they can prevail over the Taliban and have convinced themselves, if nobody else, that Afghanistan can be a good news story someday despite all “evidence” to the contrary. According to the MSM, green-on-blue attacks compelled U.S. troops to cease accompanying Afghan security forces on missions and to halt all training. That simply isn’t true. This column is being written on outposts where we are surrounded

and vastly outnumbered by well-armed Afghan soldiers, police, commandos and special forces. We already have accompanied them on a half-dozen operations. The distrust and Serving the Lakes Region & Beyond since 1971 disdain being reported in our media and on variVinyl Replacement Windows ous blogs simply aren’t evident. 2OOFINGs3IDING When the number of U.S. combat deaths here passed the 2,000 mark this past week, reports in the U.S. and international press cited this milestone as a point of “dismay” for the 67,000 U.S. troops still here.

not taken the time to attend perhaps 100 or more events over the past two years where Senator Forrester has spoken or appeared. Senator Forrester publicizes these events on her website and in her newsletter. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been more than enough time for Ms. Morrison to quiz Jeanie in public about her stance on the issues. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too bad that Ms. Morrison discovered Senator Forresterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s schedule is filled months in ad-

vance much like that of a dentist or doctor. But have no fear, I have a solution! Ms. Morrison I cordially invite you and all of your followers to attend our Tea Party Meeting on October 17th. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to explore all of the things we have in common and work together. Bitter partisan politics have pushed our great state of New Hampshire and the United States of America to the brink of disaster. Ms. Morrison, I implore

you to contact me and take my offer seriously. Please come to our meeting, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talk about solutions not differences. I believe youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be shocked about how much we have in common. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m easy to locate. Just go online to and enter my name. P.S. Wait until you see the great desserts we have at our meeting. Tim Carter Meredith, NH.

equivalent of what Bull Connor did to black folks, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tell you what, the employees at Enron feel violated. When a company town sees its plant closing because some distant executives made some decision despite the wage concessions, despite the tax breaks, and they see their entire economy collapsing, they feel violence.â&#x20AC;? ******** At Debate 1, when Gov.

the federal deficit and the federal debt, Romney addressed moderator Jim Lehrer: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is the program so critical itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth borrowing money from China to pay for it? And if not, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get rid of it. I am not going to keep spending money on things to borrow money from China to pay for.

Salome’s Stars Horoscope ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might feel compelled to get involved on the “right side” of a seemingly unfair fight. But appearances can be deceptive. Get the facts before going forth into the fray. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Bullying others into agreeing with your position could cause resentment. Instead, persuade them to join you by making your case on a logical point-by-point basis. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Resist pushing for a workplace decision you might feel is long overdue. Your impatience could backfire. Meanwhile, focus on that still-unsettled personal situation. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your aspects favor doing something different. You might decide to redecorate your home, or take a trip somewhere you’ve never been, or even change your hairstyle. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You might want to take a break from your busy

schedule to restore your energy levels. Use this less-hectic time to also reassess your plans and make needed changes. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) What you like to think of as determination might be seen by others as nothing more than stubbornness. Try to be more flexible if you hope to get things resolved. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Watch that you don’t unwittingly reveal work-related information to the wrong person. Best to say nothing until you get official clearance to open up. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) With things settling down at work or at home, you can now take on a new challenge without fear of distraction. Be open to helpful suggestions from colleagues. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your creativity can help resolve an emotional situation that might otherwise get out of hand. Continue to be your usual

caring, sensitive self.

Photo #404 Winning Captions:

OUR PICK FOR BEST CAPTION ENTRY... Runners Up Captions: American Gothic...pre-school version. -Carl Gunderson, Conway, NH.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You could impress a lot of influential people with the way you untangle a few knotty problems. Meanwhile, a colleague is set to share some welcome news. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Aspects favor recharging your social life and meeting new people. It’s also a good time to renew friendships that might be stagnating due to neglect on both sides.

People say, “You shouldn’t marry until your through with school”, so we just quit kindergarten!” -Tom Hopwood, Meredith, NH.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Congratulations. Your talent for working out a highly technical problem earns you well-deserved praise. The weekend could bring news about a friend or relative.

Even the $10,000 a year -- which is less than anyone can earn on an entry level job -- is not guaranteed. If my years of work produced an unpublished manuscript, I would not even have been among the first thousand writers who met this fate. Very similar principles

apply to businesses. We pay attention to businesses after they have succeeded. But most new businesses do not succeed. Even those businesses that eventually turn out to be enormously successful may go through years of losing money before they have their first year of earning a profit.

Member of The National Chimney Sweep Guild spent years losing money before turning a profit for the first time in 2001. McDonald’s teetered on the edge of bankruptcy more than once in its early years. Desperate expedients were resorted to by the people who ran McDonald’s, in order to just keep their noses above the water, while hoping for better days. At one time, you could have bought half interest in McDonald’s for $25,000 -- and there were no takers. Anyone who would have risked $25,000 at that time would be a billionaire today. But there was no guarantee at the time that they wouldn’t be just throwing 25 grand down a rat hole. Where a capital gain can be documented -when a builder spends ten years creating a housing development, for example -- then whatever that builder earns in the tenth year is a capital gain, not ordinary income. There is no guarantee in advance that the builder will ever recover

his expenses, much less make a profit. There are whole industries where no one can expect to make a profit the first year -- publishing a newspaper for example. Virtually every major American airline has lost money in some years, and some of the biggest and most famous airlines have ended up going bankrupt. If a country wants investors to invest, it cannot tax their resulting capital gains the same as the incomes of people whose incomes were guaranteed in advance when they took the job. It is not just a question of “fairness” to investors. Ultimately, it is investors who guarantee other people’s incomes in a market economy, even though the investors’ own incomes are by no means guaranteed. Reducing investors’ incentives to take risks is reducing the jobs their investments are likely to create. Business income is different from employees’ income in another way. The profit that a business makes is first taxed as profit and the remainder is then taxed again as the incomes of people who receive dividends. The biggest losers from politicians who jack up

tax rates are likely to be people who are looking for jobs that will not be there, because investments will not be there to create the jobs. Thomas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305. His website is

and China too. United Kingdom Foreign Secretary William Hague stated, “That the Security Council has failed to act on its clear responsibilities in the case of Syria is inexcusable…it is a terrible indictment of the Council that over 22,000 people have died since it first failed to agree to a resolution to stem to violence.” As French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius conceded, “As long as the Security Council is deadlocked, with the Chinese and Russians sticking to their positions, Bashar al-Assad will stay there.” Tragically this crisis seems far from over.

Dover Civil War Soldiers / Sailors Monument 100 Years Old On October 19, 1912, one hundred fifty Civil War veterans led by members of the Charles W. Sawyer G.A.R. Post No 17 marched from the Third Street B&M railroad station to the front lawn of the Dover Public Library to officially unveil and dedicate the newly erected Soldiers and Sailors Monument….a gift to the city of Dover from Civil War veteran and prominent attorney, Col. Daniel Hall. Standing just over 41 feet tall, the monument was designed by Lewis J. White from Quincy, Massachusetts and made of Barre, Vermont granite. The Army and Navy soldiers standing on each side are bronze. On Saturday October 20, at 11am a Civil War Color Guard will place a wreath at the monument. The trustees of the Woodman Institute Museum have arranged for a procession to march from the City Hall parking lot across Locust Street to the monu-

ment. The color guard will represent Civil War Army and Navy soldiers with the original Charles W. Sawyer G.A.R. banner carried by a soldier and wife representing the Sawyer Relief Corps No 34. A wreath will be placed to commemorate the 100th Anniversary and Mayor Dean Trefethen will read a proclamation. Museum trustee Thom Hindle, says that many folks drive by or around the monument every day and have no idea what it represents. One hundred and fifty years ago the rebellion between Northern and Southern states began. Many young men from Dover and surrounding communities joined local regiments, leaving home and families behind, traveling to parts of the country most had never heard of. Hindle says,” this is a small gesture to remember those men who gave their lives during the many bloody battles and to the members

of the G.A.R. and to Col. Hall, for erecting this monument in their memory.” Civil War re-enactors will be on hand after the ceremony at the Woodman Museum on Central Ave. from 12 -4 to talk with visitors and explain some of the letters and artifacts on display in the museum’s Civil War room and the special “Letters Home” exhibit which will close on December 1. The Woodman Institute Museum is a traditional nineteenth century natural science, local history and art museum experience that has been educating and entertaining children and adults since 1916. The Woodman is located at 182 Central Avenue in Dover…open WedSun. 12:30-4:30. Visit or call 603-742-1038 for additional information or arrange a group tour.
