The 39th Annual Lake Winnipesaukee Antique and Classic Boat Show takes place this Saturday, July 28th, at The Meredith Public Docks starting at 9am. A popular summer tra-


This year’s Antique Boat Show poster by Peter Ferber depicts a marathon water ski race rounding the bandstand in Alton Bay. These races ran from the late 1950’s thru the 1960’s. Starting from The Weirs, they crossed the Broads to Wolfeboro, then down to Alton Bay, and finishing back at The Weirs. Each segment was skied by a different skier, with at least one of them being female. The favored tow boats were large Century inboards which would reach speeds in excess of 50 mph. A variety of them are pictured here, including a black Century Raven Marine Patrol boat. A number of these beautiful mahogany runabouts will be on display this Saturday, July 28th, from 9 am to 3 pm at the annual Antique and Classic Boat Show in Meredith. A revival of the race was staged last summer.

PLYMOUTH- The Flying Monkey Performance Center is honored to present singersongwriter, Marc Cohn with his band on Friday, July 27th at 7:30pm. Cohn first made a name for himself in 1990 with his critically acclaimed self-titled debut album, which featured the hits Walking In Memphis, Silver Thunderbird and True Companion. Special guest Rebecca Pidgeon will open the show. Tickets for this concert start at $35. A favorite of listeners and critics alike, pianist/singer/ songwriter Marc Cohn’s 1991 debut earned him a Grammy for “Best New Artist.” On the strength of the single “Walking to Memphis,” Cohn fashioned a career that took cues from Van Morrison’s blue-eyed soul and other ‘70s staples like Jackson Browne and Joni Mitchell. Along the way he has received assists from David Crosby, Graham Nash, Roseanne Cash and Martin Sexton. Tickets for the Marc Cohn concert are $35, and $45 for premium seats.

Made in the USA!

Built in 1812 by Nathaniel Rogers as a residence, this building at the corner of North Main Street and Sewall Road in Wolfeboro saw many changes in ownership. Today it is the Wolfeboro Inn.

The Wolfeboro Inn Celebrates 200 Years The Wolfeboro Inn is celebrating 200 years. Considering that the town of Wolfeboro turned 250 years old in 2009, the building has roots deep in the town. The Inn has gone through many different owners and renovations in 200 years and its history is extensive. Built in 1812 by Nathaniel Rogers, when Wolfeboro’s population was 1,794, it was originally a private residence on what was once a hundred acre homestead that Nathaniel inherited from his father. It didn’t open its doors to guests until 1887 as the summer tourism visitors

to Wolfeboro began to grow in numbers. It is located on North Main Street at the corner of Sewall Road. The front of the building, as seen today, is the original house. In 1931, HR Carlisle bought the house and called it “The Copper Kettle Corner.” It was operated as a restaurant and gift shop. In May of 1936, it was bought by Mr. and Mrs. James W. Carr who changed the name to the Carr House. Mr. Carr had previously been the manager of the Hollender Hotel in St. Petersburg, Fla. In addition to the dining room, it now featured the

Colonial Tavern room and the Pine Lounge in addition to its dining room. Sunday dinners were offered for one dollar. It operated during the summer months and was complete with waiters in white gloves who pampered the guests. In 1939, the dining room was opened to outside guests During World War II, James Carr served in the Pacific, and the Inn was closed until the end of the war. When it reopened it had a house motto of: “A country inn on Lake Winnipesaukee.” In 1946, The Carrs See inn on 38

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 the patriotic spirit of its

Where Do They Stand? To The Editor: While I applaud Ayotte’s stand on the recently passed Transportation Bill, she not only brought to question whether expending $20 billion more than the Federal Gas Tax gathered in revenue... she brought to question the true wishes of our district voters. It brings to question how two politicians from the same party, being seated in the same election, can have two opposing views and neither be held accountable? Obviously, I can’t blame voter integrity in our ‘either/or’ political world. But I can question open support for such candidates. Our next line of defense will be the incoming members of the NH Legislature and Governorelect. So where do each of these candidates stand? Will they stand with Senator Ayotte, and vote not to budget or expend funds from the Transportation Bill in areas she opposed? Or will they vote to support its expenditure, while publicly basking in her with praise? Now is the time, before the primaries, and the limiting choice of ‘either/ or’ that we must know the positions of those aspiring to the governorship, or a legislative seat. Do they stand with Senator Ayotte? Or with Senator Shaheen? Can we expect them to refuse to budget and expend those ‘wasteful’ monies? Or can we expect them to support Shaheen’s deficit spending? We already know that

Guinta and Bass sided with Senator Shaheen, but what of those that aspire to be ‘our last line of defense’? Where do Lamontagne, Smith, Hassan, and Cilley stand? Would they side with Senator Ayotte, and stop expenditure on clean air mitigation, recreational trails and transportation enhancement projects? Or will they simply sign-off and change the subject? What about those seeking seats in the Legislature? And, of course, will the voters that publicly support Senator Ayotte’s position have the strength of integrity to speak and vote against those that side with Senator Shaheen? John Edward Mercier Belmont, NH.

Uh Oh! To The Editor: U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that voter identification laws are constitutional. On July 6, 2012, after many battles Governor Lynch has finally permitted New Hampshire’s voter ID bill to become law. Great! Those of us who believe today’s technology easily hoodwinks yesterday’s voting processes see this as a win for the good guys. Done deal right? Not so fast! Unfortunately due to historical events, New Hampshire is subject to Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, which requires all voting process changes to be approved by Washington. So our new voter ID law cannot take effect until Washington approves. New Hampshire’s new voter

id law is now in a 60-day queue waiting approval from the US Department of Justice. Uh Oh! The Attorney General of the United States (one who is supposed to represent all of us) and his Justice Department evidently hold the belief that that it is so hard for some to get photo IDs that a mandate to produce an id to vote amounts to government-sponsored voter disenfranchisement. Preposterous! In addition to needing a photo ID to be admitted to Washington’s own Justice Department, today one needs a photo ID to cash checks, travel on airplanes, purchase a firearm, complete any large credit card purchase, open a bank account, rent an apartment, be admitted to a hospital, and get a marriage license. Interestingly you need valid photo identification to qualify for many government programs as well. These are the government programs designed specifically to help the folks our Justice Department is presumably trying to protect. These government programs require photo IDs! Why? Because the administrators of these programs want to eliminate fraud. Well, guess what! That’s the same reason we want voter id prevent fraud. Voter fraud is simple to imagine but very hard to prove. One case in Mississippi was closed only when the culprit’s DNA was lifted from the glue she licked to seal absentee ballot envelopes. DNA! With assistance from today’s modern technology, identity theft is rampart. Our voting processes are antiquated. You do the math. It’s a new day. We need new leadership and we need voter ID!

Live Free or Die.


This Week’s Column I don’t always k n o w what I am going to write about before I sit by Brendan Smith d o w n t o Weirs Times Editor write it. I get a lot of ideas from day to day living, but not all of them translate into a 700 word column. For example. I recently bought a gas powered weed whacker. Those of you who know me understand that I am a good example why there should be a three day waiting period for selling any kind of power tool to certain people like me. Much like a car, if it has a motor, people like me should be required to first take a road test. My old weed whacker was electric and not very powerful and was pretty ineffective on some of the thicker brush I have. Also, I often found myself in the situation where I was close to actually weed whacking the power cord itself. Not a very safe proposition. So, I bought the gas powered one and, to everyone’s amazement, I have handled it pretty well. The only problem being that when I was done, I had an awful ringing in my ears. I went to the local big chain hardware store and searched for ear protectors. The salesman, who was about my age, showed me their selection and asked me if I wanted a pair with a radio built into it. “That’s sort of counter productive to the reason you wear ear protectors, isn’t it?� I asked. “Well,� he said. “Some people like to ‘Rock Out’ while working.�

After all was said and done I thought it would make a good column. Not the story about the ear protectors, but the fact that a guy pushing sixty would actually use the phrase “Rock Out.� Still, I couldn’t seem to push it for 700 words, so I let it go. Last week I received two, not one, but two letters in the U.S. mail from Verizon to inform me that I had signed up for email billing only so as to cut back on the amount of paper that was needed to send out paper bills in the U.S. Mail. I had, without hesitation, signed up for this after visiting a Verizon store after a long day on airplanes when my phone stopped working and I couldn’t figure out the problem. I needed the help of a cocky, self assured tech person. He saved my phone but then hounded me with all of these other options, including one for paperless billing. I had just spent hours in the air looking down at a country loaded with trees. I wasn’t anxious to save any of them; in fact, I thought we have too many as is, I just wanted to get out of that store and get home and get into bed. So, I signed the paper. I had done my part, though maybe not for the reasons you’d expect, but Verizon didn’t seem to be doing their fair share. It was, I thought at the time I got the letters in the mail, an “Ah Ha� moment. This would make a great column for a future issue. But, as you can see, it was really only good for a few paragraphs. Then there was President Obama’s self defining moment when he claimed that anyone’s success was dependent

upon the government. If it wasn’t for roads and bridges, etc. that were built by the government then no one would be able to actually be successful. I must admit it irked me more than a little. There’s a great column by Thomas Sowell in this issue that talks about that better than I can, so it’s another idea I can’t use. But I still needed to come up with something for this week. After all, this is what I get paid for and, minus the taxes deducted from my paycheck to give the government the money they need to build those roads and bridges, it does help pay the mortgage. But I won’t got there. Last week, I signed up for Twitter. I was hoping it would provide me with some good ideas. So far, it’s only made me realize that my skills in figuring out social media are on about the same level as my skills with power tools. I am enjoying social media though, I’m not much for talking to people face to face. Hopefully, next week, I will have a more cohesive and complete thought for a column. Maybe not. We’ll see. By the way, you can follow me on Twitter at @ weirsbrendan. For whatever that is worth. Brendan Smith welcomes your comments at

On Garden State Grid Gambling New Jersey Governor Chris Christie wants to legalize sports gambling in the Garden State. He wonders why organized crime should reap all the benefits of current sports gambling. The penchant so many sports fans have to bet on game outcomes is powerful and it creates a lucrative market for bookmakers who pay no taxes on their illegal income. The Associated Press reported that Christie’s decision to defy a federal law against sports betting is an exciting thought for New Jersey residents, who voted 2-1 last year in favor of sports books in Atlantic City casinos and four major racetracks. However, to succeed here, Christie needs not only to vanquish the Feds, but also the NFL, which strongly opposes the idea. Toni Monkovic’s New York Times football blog points out that Christie is undaunted. “If someone wants to stop us, then let them try to stop us,” said the first-term N.J. governor. “We want to work with the casinos and horse racing industry to get it implemented. Am I expecting there may be legal action taken against us to prevent it? Yes. But I have every confidence we’re going to be successful. We intend to go forward.” Christie says he has common sense on his side. In speech after speech, he tells the story of going to a Giants game and talking to a fan who was happy

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. with a victory against Miami but disappointed that the Giants didn’t cover. His point: Gambling is going to happen regardless, so regulate it and take it out of criminal hands. Some the licensing fees would be earmarked for programs to deal with gambling addiction. Christie has valiantly “tackled” a systemic state budget crisis brought on by too many years of Democrat misrule. (See Corzine, John). Desperate times, call for desperate measures. But is sanctioning sports betting really that radical? Many people make a living from it in Nevada. There should be plenty of data from the Silver State on how that’s worked out in Nevada. Check out the United Kingdom. One can legally bet on almost anything in England and the Brits seem to be OK with it. Legalized sports gambling could actually create unprecedented interest in sports, as suddenly that Charger-Chief game could mean a lot to a bettor, who otherwise could care less about that game’s outcome. This means higher television ratings, which the NFL must be aware of. It’s not going to happen as quickly as Christie wants, and it may not save Atlantic City or the state’s horse racing industry by itself. But he’s the first major politician to come

out aggressively favoring sports betting, and I’m left wondering why New Hampshire didn’t lead the way in this area. Remember that the Granite State instituted the first modern state lottery in 1964, and that seems to have worked out OK. Millions of people regularly bet on the stock market. Why not let people bet on sports? It may be stupid to bet on the Red Sox, but it shouldn’t be criminal! Live Free or Die! A Gambling Story (From Professional Gambler.Com) It was the 1999 MLB playoffs. It was the bottom of the 15th inning between the Braves and Mets. The game was tied, 3-3. The bases were loaded and my friend Adrian from Singapore was on the “Over” 9.0 runs. With the score 3-3, he needed to catch a longshot break to win, of course. Then, with the bases loaded Robin Ventura came to bat and hit a grand slam home run! Adrian was ecstatic, of course. A final score of 7-3! “Over” 9! His sportbook credited his account with his winnings and all was right with the world. But wait! The fans flooded the field, the players piled onto Ventura, and there was instant chaos. Ventura was swept off his feet before he could run See moffett on 33

I was in by Oliver North Syndicated Columnist the cereal aisle, squinting at the list of ingredients on a brightly colored box of “high-fiber multigrain something,” when a fellow shopper put the question to me: “So, Col. North, what’s the ‘October surprise’ for this election?” I almost said, “High-fructose corn syrup” -- the ingredient I had been instructed to avoid -- but settled instead for this: “Syria.

tion, it didn’t suit me. That’s because the first “October surprise” in a presidential campaign I recall affected me personally. It was 1968. Richard Nixon vs. Vice President Hubert Humphrey. Nixon had campaigned on a promise to end the war in Vietnam, and I was a newly minted U.S. Marine infantry second lieutenant with orders sending me to the widely unpopular fight shortly after the election. On Oct. 31, just five days before Americans were to go to the polls, President Lyndon Johnson announced a halt to the “Rolling Thunder” air campaign against military targets in North Vietnam and a “breakthrough” in the “Paris peace talks” with the regime in Hanoi. Johnson’s last-minute ploy to help his vice president’s political fortunes had little effect on the election; Nixon won in a landslide. Worse, Johnson’s bombing See north on 48

O b a m a campaign adviser David Axelrod and his hatchet people are still yammering about GOP presidential rival by Michelle Malkin Mitt Romney’s Syndicated Columnist overseas investments. It’s time for the Romney campaign to educate voters about all the shady financial institutions embraced by Democrats right here on American soil. The fat-cat narrative attacks on Republicans won’t go away by making nice with the White House -- or by relying on Beltway journalists to drop their double standards and vet the president’s own bad bank entanglements. Indeed, The New York Times admitted this week that their staff and other political journalists from every major media outlet submit their work to the White House for unprecedented review, editing and “veto power.” Fortunately, the truth manipulators and message massagers haven’t gotten to this column yet. So, let’s talk sleazy Democratic Party-backed banks, shall we? Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac. Forget Switzerland. The mother and father of all financial industry outrages are rooted in Washington, D.C. And Obama Democrats are among the biggest winners of lavish, out-of-control compensation packages from fraud-plagued Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Obama confidante James Johnson raked in $21

million. Former Obama chief of staff and current Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel “earned” at least $320,000 for a brief 14-month gig at Freddie Mac. And Clinton Fannie Mae head and Obama economic confidante Franklin Raines bagged some $90 million in pay and stock options earned during the governmentsponsored institution’s Enronstyle accounting scandal on the public dime. Self-appointed banking policewoman and DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz has, uncharacteristically, kept her mouth shut about these wealthy barons. Superior Bank. One of the Obamas’ oldest Chicago friends and wealthiest billionaire bundlers, former Obama national finance chairwoman Penny Pritzker, headed up this subprime lender. Even after it went under in 2001 and left 1,400 customers destitute, Pritzker was pushing to expand its toxic subprime loan business. Pritzker and her family escaped accountability by forking over $460 million over 15 years. Obama happily accepted the nearly $800 million in campaign and inaugural funding Pritzker drummed up for him. To protect her family’s multibillion dollar fortune, Pritzker’s enterprises park their money in the very same kind of offshore trusts her candidate is attacking Romney over. Broadway Bank.

Olympic Uniform Controversy Brings Bipartisan “Gotcha Moment” UNITED NATIONS—With the

London Summer Olympics fast approaching, the eyes of America are on Team USA, or more preby John J. Metzler cisely on the Syndicated Columnist manufacturer’s labels on their uniforms. What looked like a proud sporting moment when designer Ralph Lauren unveiled a really classy looking blue navy blazer, white pants and slightly improbable beret, became a political “gotcha moment” as the ubiquitous “Made in China” label was part of the kit. Whoops! Politicians and pundits alike were energized as fast as a July thunderstorm. And rightly so--to a point. That the Team USA dress uniforms were not made in the USA comes as shock but hardly a surprise. Have you been to a clothing or shoe store recently? While the Ralph Lauren manufacturer portrays a classic and classy “American look,” the actual product is Made in China. Surprise? So are so many men’s and women’s clothes be they Brooks Brothers polo or dress shirts, or garments at the GAP or Crew. The real outrage was not so much that the product comes from a low wage, non-union manufacturing base in communist China, but that in these times of recession, eight percent plus unemployment, and a continuing hemorrhage of American jobs, that the outfits can and should be produced here in the USA. The disputed uniforms are the responsibility of the Coloradobased U.S. Olympic Committee, a private organization without taxpayer funding. U.S. Olympic Committee fundraising often includes various promotional items, umbrellas, t shirts, kit bags etc, which are…Made in China. Many politicians drew the line in the sand on nationalistic grounds as well as the fact that China has siphoned off so many American manufacturing jobs. Nevada Democrat and Senate Majority leader Harry Reid, in a pique of disgust said “I think they should take all the uniforms, put them in a big pile and burn them..” Almost sounds like

Mao’s Cultural Revolution! Republican House Majority Leader John Boehner of Ohio said sarcastically of the Olympic Committee, “You’d think they would know better.” Vermont’s Independent Senator Bernie Sanders, whose economic policies often seem to the left of contemporary China’s, chimed in but with reason that, “At a time when millions of Americans are unemployed, there is no reason why U.S. Olympic uniforms are not being manufactured in the U.S. This action on the part of the U.S. Olympic Committee is symbolic of a disastrous trade policy which has cost us millions of decent-paying jobs.” The U.S. Olympic Committee must have been appallingly dense not to have thought that the Made in China label creates a political lightning rod especially in hard economic times. Let’s look at the record of our lopsided trade with the People’s Republic of China. The USA/ PRC trade deficits have soared and dangerously so even during recession. In 2011 a recession year, Beijing held a $295 billion trade surplus with the U.S. In 2010 the surplus was $273 billion in China’s favor. Such sobering statistics clearly overshadow the uniform uproar. Sadly the story becomes about the uniforms not the amazing athletes on Team USA.In the 2008 Olympics in Beijing China, Team USA’s uniforms were also Made in China. Bob Beckel, a prominent Democrat commentator on FOX News went ballistic on the show, “The Five.” He boomed, “They are so competitive, they probably would have put downers in the fabric to hurt our athletes… I don’t trust them worth a damn, and I tell you, I wouldn’t let anything be done over there.” Beckel blasted Beijing, saying that Islamic terrorists are not nearly as great a threat to the United States as is China. Democrats seem to outdo the Republicans in Beijing-bashing as they do self-righteous outrage. Outsourcing becomes the issue. Not just with the traditional manufacturing jobs, but increasingly high-tech and scientific production which has gone offshore. Firms like Boeing aircraft and Mi-

crosoft have facilities in China. Here at home, have we noticed the Obama Administration has cut over 10,000 highly paid scientific jobs in Florida before outsourcing the U.S. space program launches to Russia? NASA’s

manned launch capacity has been outsourced by Obama. Given that it is too late to remanufacture the Olympic uniforms, let’s end on a positive note. The U.S. Olympic Commit-

Obama’s Rhetoric Barack Obama’s great rhetorical gifts include the ability to make the absurd sound not only plausible, but inspiring and profound. by Thomas Sowell H i s l a t e s t Syndicated Columnist verbal triumph was to say on July 13th, “if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own.” As an example, “Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business -- you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” Let’s stop and think, even though the whole purpose of much political rhetoric is to keep us from thinking, and stir our emotions instead. Even if we were to assume, just for the sake of argument, that 90 percent of what a successful person has achieved was due to the government, what follows from that? That politicians will make better decisions than individu-

al citizens, that politicians will spend the wealth of the country better than those who created it? That doesn’t follow logically -- and certainly not empirically. Does anyone doubt that most people owe a lot to the parents who raised them? But what follows from that? That they should never become adults who make their own decisions? The whole point of the collectivist mindset is to concentrate power in the hands of the collectivists -- which is to say, to take away our freedom. They do this in stages, starting with some group that others envy or resent -- Jews in Nazi Germany, capitalists in the Soviet Union, foreign investors in Third World countries that confiscate their investments and call this theft “nationalization.” Freedom is seldom destroyed all at once. More often it is eroded, bit by bit, until it is gone. This can happen so gradually that there is no sudden change that would alert people to the danger. By the time everybody realizes what has See Sowell on 35

—OFF THE SHELF— Being The Bookman by Debby Montague Entertainment Correspondent

Booked To Die, John Dunning, Scribner, 1992 Sometimes it happens like this: My friend suggested an author she’d come across when she was researching old time radio. The book and author sounded interesting. I sprang for the b o o k , and everything I love about books c o n verged – good writing, good story, good character, good stuff. A few weeks ago my friend, J, mentioned John Dunning’s Booked To Die. Booked To Die won a Nero Award (http:// htm/neroaward/award. htm). J and I are ardent fans of the Nero Wolfe mysteries by Rex Stout, and I’ve read several of the Nero Award winners and in most cases found them good reads. So off I went to the Amazon website to see what Booked To Die was about and it looked promising - a murder mystery centered on books and bookstores. Some people just dive into the first chapter, but I like to read the intro particularly when it’s written by the author. This paperback contained the author’s introduction, and that was worth the price of the book even if the mystery had turned out to be so-so. Dunning, a bookman himself, talks about

the book business – writers, sellers, collectors, prices – and I was smitten before I even started reading the mystery. Booked To Die introduces Cliff Janeway, Denver homicide detective and book collector. Bobby the book scout is murdered, and right away Janeway suspects big, rich, and bigoted Jackie Newton of the crime. T h e r e aren’t a lot of clues to Bobby’s murder as Janeway questions the book s e l l e r s who buy books from B o b b y , and there are none that lead to Jackie Newton. Janeway gets sidetracked from time to time since his hobby is book collecting, and I got sidetracked, too, picturing all those pristine first editions that Janeway mentions. When he’s not distracted by the books, Janeway is increasingly frustrated by the case. There are no clues, and no discernible reason why a book scout living in a dump would be murdered. And for Janeway there’s nothing to tie Newton to Bobby’s murder. Happily for this reader (if not for Janeway) Janeway’s obsession with Newton is his undoing, and he resigns from the police force and begins life as a bookman. He finds a store, buys books, and makes a living, as Janeway puts it “in the work I’d been born for.� All’s right with Janeway’s world until he’s pulled back into the investigation of Bobby Westfall’s

murder. Dunning’s writing is engrossing. There are no let-downs, no tedious intervals, just crisp dialogue and well-drawn characters, and authors and titles strewn like little prizes throughout the pages. Dunning, Janeway, and I agree that Thomas Harris’ Silence Of The Lambs was the best thriller of its day, and that “the good guys, like Melville, might die and be forgotten with the rest, but they always come back.� Some fans of Rex Stout’s Nero Wolfe mysteries read all the books that Wolfe reads in the stories, and fans of John Dunning’s Bookman series would have a ball reading all the books and authors mentioned in Booked To Die. I’ll never be a book-

Your Health is in Your Hands

Contributing Writer

Remember when you were a kid and you didn’t want to sleep because you were scared to miss out on something? Then we become adults and we all stagger around haggardly like sleep deprived zombies and all we want is to actually sleep. Take a look at people’s morning habits: coffee, soda and grumbling. We are stretched too thin with our time, overbooked with our activities and just generally never taking any time to slow down; least of all sleep. Going further, look at the rise of energy drinks like Red bull or 5 Hour Energy. We are some tired people. The problem is that a lack of sleep is very detrimental to your health. The magazine Prevention ( presented a synopsis of some interesting research articles indicating findings between lack of sleep and disease: - Researchers at the West Virginia University School of Medicine found a link with cardiovascular disease. (Published in the Journal of Sleep.) - Published in the Journal of Diabetes in 2011 was research from the U of Chicago and Northwestern University demonstrating problems for diabetics who under sleep. - Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine in Japan found that women sleeping less 6 hours had a 62% higher risk of breast cancer while women sleeping more than 9 hours had a 28% lower risk. - Researchers from the New England Research Institute in Watertown, MA found a link between too little sleep and urinary problems.

- Case Western University researchers found a link with increased colorectal polyps which could potentially become cancerous. - In a 10 year study from the University of Copenhagen looking at 16,000 people a connection between lack of sleep and an increased risk of mortality was found. These are huge findings. These studies don’t even get into the way that sleep deprivation affects mood, daily functionality and weight. (Want to drop a few pounds? Simply sleep more.) Sleep is when your body repairs and heals. Sleep is when your body consolidates memory. It is more than a rest period, sleep is a rebuilding period. The key to good sleep is experiencing all 5 phases of the sleep cycle. The most important being the last two: deep sleep and REM (rapid eye movement) phases. During REM sleep the body becomes more and more relaxed and the brain becomes more active. The voluntary muscles even become paralyzed. This is where dreaming occurs. If you are a person who tosses and turns all night and/or sleeps dreamlessly perhaps you are not reaching REM sleep. If this is the case you are missing out on the true healing and restorative powers of sleep. Maybe you are a person who burns the candle at both ends, thus not sleeping enough hours and not experiencing enough REM cycles in a given night. Either way, missing out on deep, good sleep will leave you vulnerable to not just being groggy, but as aforementioned, many health risks. Finding your way to REM sleep may be as simple as these easy steps: 1) Actually sleep, simple I know, but how many of us are simply

going to bed too late or cramming too much into a day? It’s not worth your health. Set aside time to sleep. 2) Get rid of the TV/computer from your bedroom. The blue light from our modern entertainment devices interrupt the sleep hormone melatonin, which allows the body to relax enough to sleep. Even cell phone lights and alarm clock lights could have this effect. Block out or remove all of these. 3) Exercise daily. This will help you sleep better. Isn’t exercise an answer to almost every physical problem? 4) Consuming caffeine too late in the day or alcohol within 2 hours of bedtime. 5) Too much stress, which I realize is a complex problem, but add this to the list of stress damages. However, if you follow the other steps listed, you could see your stress decrease naturally as you sleep and exercise more. The bottom line is that our bodies need sleep. For the sake of our physical and emotional wellbeing we need good quality sleep and the right quantity of sleep. This will require us to take responsibility for ourselves and our life choices. It’s amazing that the answer to many of our health concerns and questions may, ultimately, be as simple as sleeping on it.

Everyone is born with about 100 billion brain cells. We form new connections between these cells throughout life, but the rate is particularly high when we’re young.

with both proper nutrients and varied experiences, especially when they are young and developing at such a fast rate, is crucial,” says speech pathologist Lauren Zimet, founder of Early Insights, LLC, and an expert on childhood brain development. “The connections in brain circuitry can be enhanced through the environments and activities a child is exposed to, and participates in, as well as the nutrients a child consumes.” Zimet offers five tips to help parents enhance healthy brain development in their children, positioning them for success in school today, and well into their future: 1. Select a rainbow It’s no secret that the benefits of fresh fruits and vegetables are numerous, but thanks to the results of ongoing research, you can confidently add brain health to that list. Encourage your children to eat a colorful array of produce (organic when possible) each day so they get the antioxidants, vitamins and minerals needed to

nourish and protect their growing brains. If your child is resistant to eating produce, encourage them to come shopping with you and select something new to try. Kids are more likely to eat what they have selected themselves. 2. Relax the right way While it’s true that exercise boosts brain power, it’s also important to teach children how to relax. Balancing activity with relaxation is important so that kids don’t get too stressed, which can impact the brain’s development and lead to learning and behavior problems. Teaching children early on the benefit of setting goals, working towards those goals, and giving their brain and body time to relax are important life skills. When it’s time to relax, skip the TV and teach your child that taking a walk in nature, reading a book or drawing are great ways to unwind. Deep breathing is also an excellent practice to teach children of all ages. 3. Eat omega-3 brain See brain on 18

food Omega-3 essential fatty acids are critical to a child’s brain development. They are called “essential” because we need them for optimal health. The problem is that our bodies cannot manufacture them and we can only get

them from the food we eat or supplements we take. While fish, nuts and seaweed are good omega-3 sources, kids typically don’t gobble down these foods. That leaves many parents worried that their kids aren’t getting enough, and with omega-3 deficits linked to ADHD, dyslexia

and other behavioral and psychological disorders, many are turning to supplements for their children. Experts agree that the safest, most reliable source of the most important essential fatty acids (EPA and DHA) is a high quality fish oil supplement. Fortunately, there are purified, molecularly distilled fish oil supplements that are manufactured with kids in mind.

5. Be a positive support system early on Learning is a complex process, but children will be more open to trying new things when they know their parents believe in them. Acknowledging effort, instead of the outcome, strengthens a child’s belief in himself or herself. Teaching goal setting, prioritizing activities and working off of check lists exercises the prefrontal cortex (PFC) in the brain. Experimentation through trial and error is the way the brain learns best. “Giving your child’s brain what it needs to grow strong can help him or her at school and in all social situations,” adds Zimet. “Utilizing these tips is a great way to help position your child for success in the coming school year, and beyond.”

 “Due to popular demand, we’ve expanded the number of wooden boats for the water tour to twelve,” stated Kristin Isley, the Boathouse Tour Chair. “The Boathouse Tour has become one of the Museum’s most popular events and funds raised from the tour assist the Museum’s general operating fund.”
 Those who opt to take the tour by water will be driven in twelve vintage boats including some of the original Lake Winnipesaukee ride boats. The water tours will leave at 9am and at 1pm from one of two locations: the landing at Saw Mill Marina (33 Bay Street, Wolfeboro), or the Wolfeboro Corinthian Yacht Club(12 Nancy’s Way, off Main Street in downtown Wolfeboro). Water tour

tickets are $105 for notyet members and $94.50 for Museum members. Tickets sell out each year, so everyone is encouraged to purchase tickets as soon as possible.

 If a leisurely land tour is your preference, guests can take a tour in their own cars throughout the day from 9am until 4pm. Detailed maps with driving directions can be picked up at the Museum that morning, which will open early at 9am to accommodate tour participants. Each boathouse location has parking easily available with signage clearly marking the site. Land tour tickets are $40 for not-yet Museum members and $36 for Museum members. Land tickets can be purchased up to the day of the event or in advance by calling the Museum at 569-4554 or on line at

Boathouses on the tour this year are located on Lake Winnipesaukee in the Tuftonboro and Wolfeboro areas and will include boathouses with a variety of styles and stories behind each of them. Docents will be on hand to discuss the boats and the boathouse histories. A special treat for the water tour is two bonus island camp locations. Car tour visitors will have their own bonus car location that features a collection of vintage canoes and cars. Boathouses that dot our shores have often held a certain mystery to those who cruise by them. Their utilitarian purpose was important

to the early twentieth century cottagers. Families would spend the summer here and, with few roads, boats were their primary mode of transportation.

“Carlson’s Raiders; 2nd Marine Raiders Battalion”

TUESDAY, JULY 31ST AT THE WRIGHT MUSEUM HAROLD SHEFFIELD recounts his service with the elite division of the Marine Corps, the “Raiders” - the “best of the best” – the most aggressive, experienced and innovative fighters to serve in the Pacific island campaigns.

and Giannoulias -- convicted Obama fundraiser and slumlord Tony Rezko -- used to bounce nearly $500,000 in bad checks written to Las Vegas casinos. Chicago’s former inspector general blasted Giannoulias and his family for tapping $70 million worth of dividends in 2007 and 2008 as the real estate crash loomed. Broadway Bank was sitting on an estimated $250 million in bad loans. The cost to taxpayers after the bank was shut down two years ago: an estimated $390 million. ShoreBank. The “progressive” Chicago-based community development bank, a “green” financial institution whose mission was to “create economic equity and a healthy environment,” folded in August 2010. Obama personally had endorsed the politically connected bank and appeared in a video promoting its Kenyan microlending project. But it was a doomed social justice experiment. After regulators shut it down, Obama crony companies including Bank of American and Goldman Sachs took over the mess courtesy of taxpayer subsidies. Countrywide/Bank of America. Earlier this month, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee released a report on corruption-plagued Countrywide Financial Corp., which was bailed out by taxpayer-bailed-out Bank of America. The House investigation confirmed the notorious favor-trading scheme, which involved sweetheart home loan deals for members of Congress and their staff, top government officials and executives of doomed mortgage giant Fannie Mae. “These relationships helped (Countrywide CEO and Democratic subprime loan king Angelo) Mozilo increase his own company’s profits while dumping the risk of bad loans on taxpayers,” according to the new report. Mozilo copped a $67.5 million plea to avert a high-stakes

public trial in the heat of the 2010 midterm election season. Since then, Obama’s Justice Department has taken no action to prosecute Countrywide officials on federal bribery charges. Among the influencepeddling operation’s most prominent beneficiaries: the aforementioned Obama top adviser Jim Johnson, who accepted more than $7 million in below-market-rate Countrywide loans, and former Senate Banking Committee Chairman Chris Dodd, whose ill-fated 2010 reelection bid was personally endorsed by Obama. Obama stood by Dodd even as sordid details of his two discounted Countrywide loans and record Countrywide PAC donations mounted. Bank of America, which raked in $45 billion in Obama-supported TARP bailout funds and billions more in secret emergency federal loans, footed the $50 million restitution payment bill for Mozilo and another Countrywide official. In 2008, BofA’s political action committee gave its biggest contributions to Obama, totaling $421,000. And as I noted in January, Bank of America supplied the Democrats with a $15 million revolving line of credit, along with an additional $17 million loan during the 2010 midterms. Embarrassed by the party’s ties to shady Bank of America, progressives are now trying to rebrand the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C., where Obama will give his nomination acceptance address. They’re referring to it as “Panthers Stadium” instead. Obama’s copious crooked friends and funders are going to need a lot more whitewash than that to cover up their ill-gotten gains.

man. I don’t mind buying a ratty paperback of a book I’ve been searching for as long as it’s readable. I cherish my Grosset & Dunlap copy of Rex Stout’s Black Orchids with the penciled notes by the original owner, “ CWM 9-21-44� as much as I do the Farrar & Reinhart first edition that I subsequently bought. I love books – their smell, their feel, old books, new books, ebooks, audio books, the Colin Dexter Inspector Morse well-worn paperback reprints, the brand new James R. Benn Billy Boyle hardbacks. I do part with books from

time to time – boxes to the library, to St. Vincent De Paul, to my nieces. But how could I sell them? It would be like selling blood instead of giving it to the Red Cross. So I won’t be giving up my day job to become a bookman, but I can live the life vicariously in Dunning’s Bookman series. I won’t have to pack a gun, and I’ll get some good tips for finding that long soughtafter, impeccable first edition for my shelf.

To increase the likelihood that birds will come and hopefully nest in your yard, add certain natural features that appeal to them. Hedgerows, for example, are more likely to attract nesting birds than that â&#x20AC;&#x153;golf courseâ&#x20AC;? green look many homeowners try to achieve each year. Twiggy or thorny shrubs like holly or virburnum are attractive to many birds as are briar patches, brambles and brush heaps. Every section of the country has unique climate and soil conditions that will determine your choice of what to plant. As much as possible, try to incorporate varieties of trees and shrubs that are indigenous to your region. These native plants have had centuries to adapt to local environments and will prove hardier and more disease-resistant than exotic varieties. Look

around at the conditions in which your natural vegetation grows. Then, choose plants appropriate to your property. For instance you would want to plant willows in wet areas and pines in the open, sunny areas. The time you invest in research and planning before you turn one shovel of dirt assures that the tallest trees donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wind up in the center of your yard. Diverse plantings, placed on different levels, will provide greater attractiveness to both birds and birders. Minimizing problems with plant disease and pest control are also important contributing factors when a site plan is developed. Tall trees, large shrubs, small bushes and ground cover create natural layers to supply the proper habitat in small spaces. By varying the height of growing things, you accommodate bird species that spend most of their time on the ground as well as those that prefer low, bushy cover or treetops. Plant variety also helps to meet wildlife needs through all four seasons of the year. As a main element of

your habitat plan, trees and shrubs provide food, cover and nesting sites. However, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rush Mother Nature. Patience is more than a virtue when it comes to creating a backyard habitat, it is a necessity. But over time, with careful attention, you will find your property has come alive with the sights and sounds of birds and other wildlife. Enjoy your birds!

happened, it can be too late, because their freedom is gone. All the high-flown talk about how people who are successful in business should â&#x20AC;&#x153;give backâ&#x20AC;? to the community that created the things that facilitated their success is, again, something that sounds plausible to people who do not stop and think through what is being said. After years of dumbed-down education, that apparently includes a lot of people. Take Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s example of the business that benefits from being able to ship their products on roads that the government built. How does that create a need to â&#x20AC;&#x153;give backâ&#x20AC;?? Did the taxpayers, including business taxpayers, not pay for that road when it was built? Why should they have to pay for it twice? What about the workers that businesses hire, whose education is usually created in government-financed schools? The government doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any wealth of its own, except what it takes from taxpayers, whether individuals or businesses. They have already paid for that education. It is not a gift that they have to â&#x20AC;&#x153;give

backâ&#x20AC;? by letting politicians take more of their money and freedom. When businesses hire highly educated people, such as chemists or engineers, competition in the labor market forces them to pay higher salaries for people with longer years of valuable education. That education is not a government gift to the employers. It is paid for while it is being created in schools and universities, and it is paid for in higher salaries when highly educated people are hired. One of the tricks of professional magicians is to distract the audienceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attention from what they are doing while they are creating an illusion of magic.

Pious talk about â&#x20AC;&#x153;giving backâ&#x20AC;? distracts our attention from the cold fact that politicians are taking away more and more of our money and our freedom. Even the envy that politicians stir up against â&#x20AC;&#x153;the richâ&#x20AC;? is highly focussed on those particular high income-earners whose decisions the politicians want to take over. Others in sports or entertainment can make far more money than the highest paid corporate executive, but there is no way that politicians can take over the roles of Roger Federer or Oprah Winfrey, so highly paid sports stars or entertainers are never accused of â&#x20AC;&#x153;greed.â&#x20AC;?

If you like extraordinarily large dogs, and you are familiar with the Bull Mastiff breed, then waste not another second to visit New Hampshire Humane Society to meet HAMBONE! A word of caution – Hambone - so named due to his supreme interest in all things ham, is one of those “Ferrari-type” canines. Not as in he likes to ride around in that fabulously styled Italian job, he probably wouldn’t fit anyway, but rather that to drive a Ferrari, you need superior driving skills. Ergo, to own Hambone, you truly must be a superior dog owner. He’s big, really big, we are training him NOT to jump up on folks –a 100lb dog is a force of nature. He’s puppy like in his play – but he is aware of his supersized body. He requires room, and exercise, but not the kind of running games that will find you pitched on your chin in the dirt! No cats please, and no young children. But, those that love the Mastiff breed, will instantly fall in love. Shelter is open Tuesday-Saturday call 603-524-3252 or check

In 1963, The McBrideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s began planning construction of a waterfront motel on the property and in 1966 they began to advertise it as The Wolfeboro Inn and Motel. In 1970, the McBrideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s were granted a permit to build a 10x24 foot addition. In November of 1971 the McBrideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s purchased the property next door on Sewall Road, upon which stood Natalieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Guest House which, in turn, was

It was only a year later, in 1976, that the McBrideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resumed ownership of The Wolfeboro Inn after bidding on the property at a mortgageeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sale.

For the next ten years there were two new owners of The Wolfeboro Inn, each one ending with ownership being reverted back to the McBride’s. In 1988, the Inn was purchased by a group of investors and was expanded with an impressive hotel added to the rear and the Wolfe’s Tavern set up in the front. There were now 44 guest rooms, including the eight

original rooms. With its new renovations the Inn was now better equipped to handle larger functions like weddings and more. In 1989, they purchased the excursion boat, The Judge David Sewall, a 65foot, 43-ton vessel which had a crew of four and could carry up to sixty passengers. Originally built in 1946 as The Longfellow, the Judge Sewall had its difficulties and sank twice during the

Summer And The Lakes Contributing Writer

Even though the visitors start coming about Memorial Day, Motorcycle Week seems to be the start of the full summer season here at the Lakes. All summer, we will have motorcyclists as well as people pulling their homes behind them. We will see an increase of out-of-state visitors, and even visitors from around the world. I have talked with Amish visitors from Ohio and Korean newlyweds from much further! We will also see an increase of college-aged students and international students who come here on cultural exchanges and to work in the tourist industry. Summer camps will be full, and there are usually tents popping up at Gunstock and other camp sites. Then, if it is like other years, the state will decide to fix the roads, slowing traffic even further. I enjoy all the visitors, and as I see chairs set up alongside the roads, I think others also enjoy seeing what is happening. There are downsides other than slow traffic - it’s harder to get into your favorite restaurant, and tempers are a bit touchier. We pick on the Massachusetts drivers saying they drive too fast, but we who live here have to admit that we are hitting the horn more often as well – and it’s not all the fault of the flatlanders! We are blessed to live in a beautiful area, and we are blessed that others want to share it with us. And so, we open our lives and our businesses. We also open our churches. This is not the time to stay away from worship as if it were a job from which we needed a vacation. This

is a time to come and experience a more relaxed time with God, welcoming visitors and sharing our faith. I am always impressed by the Christian motorcycle groups that set up at the United Methodist Church at the Weirs during Motorcycle Week. They provide worship and Bibles, childcare and counseling. Churches from all over send cookies to be served with coffee for anyone who needs a break from the hectic activities of the week. “Got Lunch”, operating from the Laconia Congregational Church, is sending food home for children in families that rely on school lunches so the children will have food over the summer. Salvation Army and “Hands Across the Table” will continue to provide meals to those who need them, with the support of area churches. Collections for food banks will continue. Churches will change their worship times to accommodate people on vacation or staying on the islands or working in the tourist industries. Most of us will be spending more time outdoors, whether mowing the grass or hiking the trails. This is a good time to reflect on God’s beautiful work of creation. As we sit trapped in traffic, take a moment and pray for the people in the cars around you. As you drive around town, look at the ones who are walking and learn more about your neighbors – their needs and their abilities. Go to a band concert and meet your neighbors. Look at the stars and the fireflies and see the hand of God. Find a church as you travel and attend a service – experience a new style of worship, and cheer the people who regularly go to that church. If you have let God lapse in your life, come home.

Make this summer special. Rev. Victoria Wood Parrish is the pastor of the First United Methodist Church in Gilford, NH, located on Route 11-A. It is a congregation of open hearts, open minds, and open doors. Worship is at 10:30 am on Sundays. In July and August, we will have additional services at 8:30 am and 7:00 pm. Children’s activities and nursery are available during the 10:30 morning worship. We also invite you to the United Methodist Church in the Weirs, 35 Tower St., which worships at 10:00 AM. There are also many other local congregations who would welcome you to worship.

north from 8

halt had an adverse impact on U.S. and allied troops in Vietnam. By the time I took command of a rifle platoon along the socalled demilitarized zone later that month, North Vietnamese army troops were flooding across the border, and casualties escalated accordingly. Since 1968, there have been numerous â&#x20AC;&#x153;October surprises.â&#x20AC;? On Oct. 26, 1972, 12 days before the Nixon-McGovern presidential election, national security adviser Henry Kissinger, Nixonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief negotiator with the North Vietnamese, announced that peace was â&#x20AC;&#x153;at handâ&#x20AC;? during a White House news conference. Nixon almost swept the ballot, carrying 49 of 50 states, losing only in Massachusetts. Conspiracy theorists claim that Ronald Reagan prevented Jimmy Carter from reaping the benefits of an October surprise in 1980 by somehow persuading Ayatollah Ruhol-

lah Khomeini to delay freeing the 56 American hostages being held in Iran until after the U.S. elections. For those who believe such nonsense, the hostage release -- just minutes after President Reaganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inauguration -- â&#x20AC;&#x153;confirmsâ&#x20AC;? their suspicions. Notably, all of those October surprises involved foreign intrigues, unexpected events in other countries and no small degree of jeopardy for the American people. Whether they actually altered the outcome of any of those elections is debatable. But given the state of world affairs and the abysmal state of our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s security, this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presidential campaign presents all manner of October surprise opportunities. Here are the top five: --Syria. Counting on the United Nations to stop the carnage and prevent a bloody sectarian civil war has proved to be a devastating mistake. Syria is increasingly likely to

become a catastrophically failed state in a matter of weeks. But neither the Romney campaign nor the Obama campaign appears to have a plan on how to deal with radical Islamists occupying Damascus and acquiring stockpiles of chemical weapons. --Iran. Sanctions imposed by the U.N. have utterly failed to deter the ayatollahs from acquiring nuclear weapons and the means of delivering them. Tehranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s threats to close the Strait of Hormuz have driven up the worldwide price of crude oil and Americansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pain at the pump. The O-Team has dissuaded Israel from military action until after the presidential election -- but after Nov. 6, all bets are off. The Romney campaign has yet to explain how Mitt Romney would handle the Iranian threat if he were to become commander in chief. --Latin America. Authoritarians Hugo Chavez in Venezuela and Daniel Ortega in Nicaragua arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

the only problems south of the border. Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala are combating narcoterrorists, who threaten civil governance and rule of law with a tidal wave of murder and corruption. Members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps are in Venezuela and Bolivia, and the Chinese are now the biggest outside investors in Brazil. Both campaigns are mute about their policies for the region. --China. Beijing now asserts sovereignty over the entire South China Sea -and all fishing and mineral rights therein. Benigno Aquino III, president of the Philippines, has tried and failed to get the attention of the Obama administration, which claims to have a new â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pacific strategy.â&#x20AC;? The media have yet to ask Romney how he would handle the issue. --Afghanistan. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no longer news to the socalled mainstream media, but even with the Obama drawdown, there are still

more than 85,000 young Americans at war in the shadows of the Hindu Kush. The Afghan army is being handed greater security responsibilities daily. In neighboring nucleararmed Pakistan, Taliban militants and members of the Haqqani network are trying to acquire manportable surface-to-air missiles to bring down a planeload of U.S. troops heading home. This election is supposed to be about the economy and jobs. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no surprise. But if one or more of these foreign flash points catch fire, it would be nice to know that the commander in chief we hire in November has at least thought about how to put it out. Oliver North is the host of â&#x20AC;&#x153;War Storiesâ&#x20AC;? on Fox News Channel, the founder and honorary chairman of Freedom Alliance, and the author of â&#x20AC;&#x153;American Heroes in Special Operations.â&#x20AC;?

A Message From Weirs Times Columnist Mal Fuller

Here’s Diablo relaxing with me in my hospital bed. That’s not his tail on my arm, but instead it’s a hind leg that he’s kicked up over my arm. He and I were some glad to see one another after our too long separation. He stayed with mall during his long visit. I’ll be back soon and walking on my new prosthetic device! (It’s a very long story which I’ll tell you all someday soon.)

Salome’s Stars Horoscope ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A turn in a relationship upsets the amorous Arian, who is puzzled by Cupid’s romantic antics. Be patient and considerate. The confusion soon will sort itself out. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) It’s a good time for travel-loving Taureans to take off for fun-filled jaunts to new places. And don’t be surprised if Cupid tags along for what could be a very eventful trip. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You appear to be of two minds about continuing a relationship that seems to be riding roughshod over your emotions. A frank talk could help you decide one way or the other. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Stepping back from a relationship problem provides a new perspective on how to deal with it. Meanwhile, watch your words. Something said in anger now could backfire later. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A changing

situation makes the Big Cat uneasy. But hold on until things settle down around the 4th. Meanwhile, continue your good work on that still-unfinished project. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A decided improvement in a workplace situation results in an unexpected, but very welcome, added benefit for everyone. Personal relationships also improve. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Money matters remain a bit unsettled but soon will ease into the kind of stability you appreciate. Meanwhile, an expanding social life offers a chance to make new friends. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Use an unexpected roadblock in your monetary dealings to reassess your financial plans and make changes, if necessary. It soon will be smooth sailing again. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Aspects of love are strong for both single and paired Sagittarians. Professional

Gives a new meaning to the phrase Paper or Plastic! -Jackie Gentile, Randolph, MA.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Set a realistic goal and follow it through to completion. Remember: You’re more likely to impress the right people with one well-done job than with lots of jobs left undone.

A scene from the lesser known comedy-crime caper film, “Ocean’s Six” -Linda Whittemore, Moultonborough, NH.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You like to plan ahead. That’s fine. But be prepared to make some changes because of an unsettled period that influences your aspects through the 4th. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A brief phase of instability affects your usual work cycle. Use the time to catch up on chores around the house or office. Things settle down soon after the 4th. BORN THIS WEEK: You love being the center of attention and probably would be a big success in show business.
