A Morning Cruise On The Gundalow “Piscataqua” by Brendan Smith

in the 1700s up to the early part of the 1900s. They were really “eighteen wheelers” on the water. Flat-bottomed boats that carried cargo. They measured up to seventy feet and nineteen feet wide and could carry as much as fifty tons of cargo between ocean schooners and the growing towns along the Piscataqua. The Piscataqua is the only gundalow on those waters today (well, there is another one, but I’ll get to that in a minute). The last one was the Fanny M, which was owned by

Weirs Times Editor

If someone had asked me if I wanted to wake up early to take a twohour ride in an eighteenwheeler, I might come up with a convenient excuse to opt out. I did, however, jump at the chance last week to rise a bit earlier than usual to ride aboard the new Gundalow Piscataqua in Portsmouth. What, you might be asking yourself, does one have to do with the other? Gundalows were once ubiquitous craft along the very same river back

Annual Gem, Mineral and Jewelry Festival The Capital Mineral Club is holding its 49th Annual Gem, Mineral and Jewelry Festival at the Everett Arena in Concord Saturday and Sunday, August 25th and 26th. Over the years, this festival has expanded from its beginnings as a small specialty event for dedicated mineral collectors to become one of the largest of such shows in the Northeast (and, some say, the best). It now offers something for almost everyone, from children to adults and from the merely curious to hard-core rockhounds. Visitors will find an amazing variety of treasures from the earth and most are available for purchase. Mineral specimens, fossils, geodes, jewelry, carvings, gems, and much more will capture your interest. The Capital Mineral Club is a non-profit organization dedicated to the education of the earth sciences and provides scholarships and grants to students and researchers. The Gem, Mineral and Jewelry Festival is its primary fund-raiser for doing this and is an educational experience in itself. Open 9-5 on Sat., Aug 25th, and 10-4 on Sun., Aug 26th. Admission is $5 for adults and children over 12. Children 12 and under, with parent, admitted free and given free mineral specimen. Admission ticket stubs are used to determine winners of gift certificates redeemable at the show.

Candidate Introduction To The Editor: My name is Jane Cormier of Alton, New Hampshire, and I am running for the New Hampshire House of Representatives in District 8 of Belknap County for the towns of Alton, Barnstead and Gilmanton. Having been a resident of Alton for 15 years, my husband Carlos Martinez (who is running as a NH Delegate), and our children Catherine and Christopher, are proud members of District 8, and believe in the “citizen legislature” form of public service. Our family has decided not to accept any financial contributions in this first political contest, rather we are willing to sacrifice monetary security to insure an indisputable platform on which I can present the truth about government and politics. I believe in a fiscally conservative government with limited government intervention and no new taxes or fees. I believe in growth of small businesses and helping them to thrive, not just survive. The protection of personal liberty of which New Hampshire is famous is also paramount to our “Live Free or Die State”. In order to meet the challenges ahead, I desire an honest and open dialogue. A public servant is one who serves the people and does not deceive or abuse the office they have been offered by our citizenry. This is my philosophy for entering public service: to serve in integrity and truth.

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

Please visit my website www.jane4newhampshire. com to read more about my stand on the issues. Feel free to contact me and let me know of your concerns for Belknap County, and how I can make our county and State once again a place of integrity. Jane Cormier Alton, NH.

Wants To Learn More To the Editor: I am a voter in NH Senate District 2 and would like to learn more about the candidates running for election in this district. As for Senator Forrester I can look to the promises she made when elected and the record she has since being in office. What is troubling to me is trying to find out what Mr. Lamb, the opponent stands for. So far I’ve discovered that he is a former Wall Street banker, the Chair of the Plymouth Area Democrats, and he refuses to answer hypothetical questions, which was his response at a recent house party event when asked what he would have done to fix the $800 million deficit NH was facing in 2010. Based on a recent article written by a reporter I gather that he also refuses to compromise. There is much ado being made claiming that Senator Forrester is refusing to have any regular debates when she would like forums where the voters ask the questions of both candidates. Senator Forrester offered a compromise to Mr. Lamb to choose the

predecessor as well as his devotion to the interests of Lake Winnipesaukee and vicinity. Locally owned for over 20 years, this publication is devoted to printing the stories of the people and places that make New Hampshire the best place in the world to live. No, none of the daily grind news will be found in these pages, just the good stuff. 30,000 copies are distributed every week in the Lakes Region/Concord/Seacoast area. 15,000

format of the Plymouth event that he rejected because he wants to choose the location and format of EVERY event they jointly appear at. The voters are going to have to make a choice at the polls in November. These choices are not only for which Senator to elect but also for their Representatives in the NH House. In these economically challenging times the State Budget is critical to NH’s success. These budget bills originate in the House and these Representatives also make up the County Delegation and approve the County Budget. These budgets will affect the taxpayers of NH and I believe that the voters should be able to hear from ALL the candidates. I have read and heard that Mr. Lamb is also refusing to allow any candidates for the NH House to appear at any event he is at. I guess he doesn’t want to be inclusive and let the VOTERS hear ALL the candidates. I really do hope that someone can convince Mr. Lamb that the voters do not want a Senator that is so very inflexible and unbending. I don’t want someone who refuses to be inclusive and is unwilling to compromise. Please Mr. Lamb, I ask you and I am quite certain the Voters in this district ask you to accept Senator Forrester’s offer to have an event in Meredith arranged by her volunteers; an event in Plymouth arranged by your volunteers and an event in Haverhill arranged by the local media. I and the voters in District 2 are awaiting your response. You should know that your response could be the decision maker for the voters this November. Greg Knytych New Hampton, NH.

Live Free or Die.


A Humble Plea of shame, that lasts deep into the winter and even hangs on lightly the next spring. No one needs to go through such suffering. That is what TAIALBBHTWICFF is, well was, all about. The first few years were beautiful ones for TAIALBBHTWICFF. To see the look on the faces of families as they gingerly stepped from the musty confines of their Lexus wagons onto a sandy beachfront on Lake Winnipesaukee, used to bring tears to my eyes. Even as they avoided eye contact and gently wiped off their hand after shaking mine after greeting them on arrival, I was always left misty. Fundraising was easy back then. Many local businesses were on board. It wouldn’t just be good for the soul, it would be good for the economy as well. I was proud of the good work we were doing and, I must admit, the hearty treasury we built up. About three years ago a few, and I won’t mention any names, less than altruistic folks managed to finagle their way onto the board of TAIALBBHTWICFF. Suddenly, the “truly needy� were being replaced by the “not so needy.� It wasn’t random families picked by our original process of names from a hat, it was now, conveniently, relative and friends and friends of friends. In all the years I headed TAIALBBHTWICFF I never played favorites, even when family and friends from New York called me in desperation. Well, there was Uncle Louie that one time, but that was it. Two years ago, a vote was taken to create a position for someone to go out and travel, looking for

families to participate. Sure, that doesn’t sound so bad, but it was soon found out that the person in charge needed a few assistants (wink, wink). It wasn’t until I saw the bill from Foxwoods Resort in Connecticut for three nights, four shows and a case of Moet Chandon that I grew suspicious. That, it seemed, was only the first leaf to spring from this dirty tree. I could go on, but I’m sure I’d only bore you. Here we were, soaking in all sorts of cash under the pretense of using it to help others and, well, I think it’s a story you’ve heard before. The Air Is A Little Bit Better Here Than Where I Come From Fund has lost its way. Soon the hundreds of middle to upper class families who looked forward to escaping the stuffy confines of their gated communities to spend a few precious days along the shores of Winnipesaukee (and even some of the smaller lakes, if they must) will no longer have an honest advocate here in the Lakes Region. So, I am asking you, the next time that letter comes in the mail, tastefully done, showing a before and after picture of a family with 2.4 kids in their transition from being stuck for the summer in a sweltry, suburb to enjoying time on a private home on the lakefront, don’t fall for it. Don’t give in. I am ashamed to have to write this column, but I know what is right. Thanks for reading. Brendan Smith welcomes your comments at, You can follow him on Twitter at @weirsbrendan.




I used to be the President of The Air Is A Little Bit Better Here Than W h e r e Come by Brendan Smith I Weirs Times Editor F r o m Fund (TAIALBBHTWICFF). Today, it behooves me (whatever that means) to be forced to use this column to blatantly and without any shame, call upon you, the unsuspecting reader, to stop contributing to this organization I so proudly began ten years ago. I started TAIALBBHTWICFF with every one of good intentions. Today, as some rather uninspiring individuals have joined on and, over time, gotten themselves elected to the board, and me thrown out I have seen the true mission of this once great organization fall into disrepair. TAIALBBHTWICFF was developed to help middle to upper class folks who forgot to book their lakefront summer vacations in time, only to be told there is “no room at the Inn.� Well, there was room, but not the one they’d prefer. They, through only a small fault of their own, are now left helpless; sitting quietly, yet resentfully, in their surburban neighborhoods somewhere while some of their neighbors are gone, basking in the sun and cool waters on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee. Why should these poor souls have to listen to the jabbering and be forced to stare at the cell phone images of their neighbors when they return from their week in paradise? TAIALBBHTWICFF was set up to help them find their place in the sun so they won’t have to go through that mountain

MUSEUM MASTERPIECE... Needs A Permanent Home

International artist TERESA SPINNER is offering her painting Afternoon in the Mountains for sale. It is 5’X7’ & too big for her studio. It is Framed & ready to hang. Call 941-504-1966 or 934-3222 for more information and/or an appointment to see it.

Some people think of art collectors as stuffy folks who attend auctions and spend millions for art. Then they pay more than the average person makes in a year to insure it. Collecting art is only for the wealthy. Well that isn’t fair, is it? So, how can you become an art collector? First of all, forget about purchasing famous “A list” art work. You can go see that in the many beautiful art museums available to everyone. Instead, checking out local art galleries is the way to go. There is no pressure to purchase. If so, find another gallery! It is not the job of the gallery to intimidate you. It is the job of the gallery to introduce you to the art. Start by asking about the artist. Obtain a copy of his or her resume to see how established the artist is. Find out what processes the artist uses and what his or her inspirations are. This





“Snappers” by local artist Marcia Santore. Perhaps a piece for your personal art collection. Her website is can help you decide if you want to collect the art you have seen. If nothing inspires you, just thank the gallery worker and move on. Simple as that! Let me back track a bit. Collecting art should be kind of like falling in love. Your art collecting will fall flat unless you walk into the room and see that special artwork across the room. Love at first sight! Your art might never become famous but you will love your unique, one of a kind work of art. Another tip for the budding collector is to decide what you are looking for before you start looking. Perhaps you like traditional art. Perhaps you like interesting outdoor sculptures. There are so many options! Best of all, collecting can be a passionate pursuit as well as a way to live with beauty

every day. Purchasing original art is more of an investment than purchasing mass produced art. On the other hand, if you purchase mass produced art, someone else has inevitably decided what you will like and mass produced it. I find something very wrong with that scenario! Now to get started… There are reputable galleries and there are reputable shows. Some shows are juried. That means the artist has passed the quality test. And, by the way, it is O.K. to politely ask if the show is juried. If it isn’t, you still might find some great treasures. Remember, this is your art collection! Kimberly B. Severance is an artist and art teacher. She will be contributing occasional articles on all things art.

The Feds’ War on ... Buckyballs!

The New Normal WASHINGTON, D.C. -- This

week’s revelation about the president’s authorizing covert action in Syria should not have come as a surprise to anyone. by Oliver North On WednesSyndicated Columnist day, August 1, CNN carried a breathless report sourced to “U.S. officials” that our beloved Nobel Peace Prize recipient in the Oval Office “has signed a covert directive authorizing U.S. support for Syrian rebels battling President Bashar al-Assad.” According to the story, which was picked up by dozens of other outlets within hours, “The secret order, referred to as an intelligence ‘finding,’ allows for clandestine support by the CIA and other agencies.” Given the torrent of self-adulatory leaks since the O-Team arrived in Washington three and a half years ago, this should have been the non-story of the month. But the mainstream media fell for it faster than Missy Franklin could

swim 100 meters. That’s just what the O-Team wanted -- and has come to expect. It turns out the story is true. Obama did sign a “finding” -- a document required by the 1974 Hughes-Ryan Amendment to the Foreign Assistance Act. The Nixon-era law compels a president to notify Congress that he has formally authorized a “covert” U.S. intelligence activity that goes beyond the collection of information, and that the activity is important to U.S. national security. As a result of Hughes-Ryan, Congress set up “permanent select committees” in the House and Senate and committed to protect sensitive sources, methods, identities and operational details that would put Americans and/or our allies at risk. Both committees were provided special access facilities where classified material could be discussed, debated and stored. Members of the committee staffs are subject to background investigations and granted security clearances. In the 38 years since HughesRyan and the “presidential finding” See north on 41

It’s come to this: In the name of protecting parents from their own lack of responsibility and common sense, the U.S. Conby Michelle Malkin sumer ProdSyndicated Columnist uct Safety Commission is waging all-out war on an innovative consumer product company in New York. The vengeful, destructive feds won’t stop until the world is safe from tiny, magnetic Buckyballs -- and until every last job created by the firm is wiped out. Where are the defenders of American innovation and entrepreneurship when you need them? While the White House doles out billions of taxpayer dollars to failed crony ventures, this phenomenally successful toy maker is fighting for its life. Last week, the agency filed an “administrative complaint” against the manufacturer/distributor of Buckyballs and Buckycubes, New York-based Maxfield and Oberton Holdings LLC. The legal action -- only the second of its kind in 11 years -- seeks to stop all sales of Buckyballs products, force a recall and order full refunds. According to the bureaucrats, “dozens of young children and teenagers swallowed” the adult desk toy, causing “internal injuries requiring surgeries.” A dozen swallowing incidents have been linked by the CPSC to Buckyballs since 2009. Compare that to the estimated 30,000 emergency room visits that occur every year as a result of children swallowing government-minted

coins. There are no fewer than five cautionary labels on every Buckyballs or Buckycubes product box; the company distributes an educational video on the dangers of swallowing the toys. And Maxfield and Oberton has cooperated with the government on safety policy since its inception. Yet, several feckless retailers (including Brookstone, Amazon and Urban Outfitters) under the regulatory gun have already yanked the magnets from their virtual and physical shelves despite the company’s clear warnings that Buckyballs and Buckycubes are for adults -- not children. “Obviously the bureaucrats see danger everywhere, and those responsible people -- like our company who have vigorously promoted safety and appropriate use of our products -- gets put out of business by an unfair and arbitrary process,” Craig Zucker, founder and CEO of Maxfield and Oberton, said in a statement. Obama’s big-business pals sit on do-nothing jobs councils and host countless dog-and-pony shows touting their commitment to “Startup America.” But when a 3-year-old startup that has earned $50 million in sales all on its own faces ruthless bureaucratic extinction, the government jobs blowhards are nowhere to be found. The Obama administration has issued thousands of waivers to union donors and other politically connected recipients to protect them from onerous federal health care regulations. Where’s the usurper-in-chief’s special executive order to keep the CPSC’s hands off of America’s Buckyballs?

London Olympics Mirror Global Competitions —As the London Olympics set new records for athletic achievements, the Summer Games equally highlight by John J. Metzler global compeSyndicated Columnist titions, both in the field of sport and nationalism. And despite all the naysayers that the London Games would not be ready, the traditional British can-do attitude prevailed (as they did in London 1948), and came through with a spectacular opening ceremony and subsequent sporting contests. I’ve been watching the Games from across the Channel. Here with a splendid setting of Paris and, to the backdrop of Notre Dame cathedral and the River Seine, the city of Paris has a widescreen for viewing in a British themed park. During the Opening Ceremony, most popular with the crowd were the segments with James Bond and the Queen, as well as the Mr. Bean skit showing the buffoonish comic in a marathon running sequence based on the Chariots of Fire movie. (an amazing Olympic movie by the way). Mr. Bean was uproariously popular with the largely French audience. Just as an aside, the British industrial revolution segment with rising smokestacks without the soot was clever, but the National PARIS

Health Service (NHS) skit with dancing doctors, prancing pediatric nurses, and somersaulting kids evoked the kind of gymnastic ode to socialist medicine one would come to expect in Pyongyang, not London. Now to sport. Team USA, despite those “Made in China” Ralph Lauren outfits I groused about a few columns back, are giving an amazing athletic performance both on land and in the water. Team USA ranks second among the 200 national team contestants. The People’s Republic of China now is in first place with the Mainland’s athletes still apparently in the afterglow of the Beijing 2008 Olympics. China’s powerhouse team already has ten gold medals and counting. Tough training, rigorous discipline and State-directed focus seems to be paying off, at least for now. Importantly Taiwan, the “other China” is separately represented, under the rubric “Chinese/Taipei.” So far, Taiwan’s athletes have scored a medal in the shadow of the dragon. France ranks third globally with nine medals, four of them gold. The French team has been especially adept in the water from swimming to kayaking. The Koreans have been doing remarkably well. South Korea now stands at number four in the overall rankings and communist North Korea amazingly ranks number five. Clearly, the 1988 Seoul Summer Olympics,

an amazing achievement putting South Korea on a global pedestal, may be part of it, as much as South Korea’s increasingly global status. Interestingly, of the top five teams in the current standings,

three are East Asian. The Russian team, once a sporting dynamo (with or without steroids) has fallen to number nine. Naturally many of the other teams have scored well with Japan winning a

Milton Friedman’s Centenary If Milton Friedman were alive today -and there was never a time when he was more needed -- he would be one hundred by Thomas Sowell y e a r s o l d . Syndicated Columnist He was born on July 31, 1912. But Professor Friedman’s death at age 94 deprived the nation of one of those rare thinkers who had both genius and common sense. Most people would not be able to understand the complex economic analysis that won him a Nobel Prize, but people with no knowledge of economics had no trouble understanding his popular books like “Free to Choose” or the TV series of the same name. In being able to express himself at both the highest level of his profession and also at a level that the average person could readily understand, Milton Friedman was like the economist whose theories and persona were most different from his own -- John Maynard Keynes. Like many, if not most, people who became prominent as opponents of the left, Professor Friedman began on the left. Decades later, looking back at a statement of his own from his early years, he said: “The most striking feature of this statement is how thoroughly Keynesian it is.” No one converted Milton Friedman, either in economics or in his views on social policy. His own research, analysis and experience converted him. As a professor, he did not attempt to convert students to his political views. I made no secret of the fact that I was a Marxist

when I was a student in Professor Friedman’s course, but he made no effort to change my views. He once said that anybody who was easily converted was not worth converting. I was still a Marxist after taking Professor Friedman’s class. Working as an economist in the government converted me. What Milton Friedman is best known for as an economist was his opposition to Keynesian economics, which had largely swept the economics profession on both sides of the Atlantic, with the notable exception of the University of Chicago, where Friedman was both trained as a student and later taught. In the heyday of Keynesian economics, many economists believed that inflationary government policies could reduce unemployment, and early empirical data seemed to support that view. The inference was that the government could make careful trade-offs between inflation and unemployment, and thus “fine tune” the economy. Milton Friedman challenged this view with both facts and analysis. He showed that the relationship between inflation and unemployment held only in the short run, when the inflation was unexpected. But, after everyone got used to inflation, unemployment could be just as high with high inflation as it had been with low inflation. When both unemployment and inflation rose at the same time in the 1970s -- “stagflation,” as it was called -- the idea of the government “fine tuning” the economy faded away. There are still some die-hard Keynesians today who keep insisting that the government’s “stimulus” spending would have worked, if only it was bigger and lasted

Once again my warning to parents: sun or no sun, wear sunglasses! They are on their own. Be proud. ******** Now the bad news. If your student is attending a 4-year university, and if Obama gets a second term, keep in mind that Obama punishes success. You want your son or daughter to have the opportunity to make the amount of money they deserve for those years of studying. Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that the American way? Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t vote for Obama. ******** Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Friday (8/3).

Liberals, a.k.a. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Liberal Ladyâ&#x20AC;?, has been a frequent caller. Her goal is to get in a free ad for the Liberal agenda and to insult me and my guests in the process. She is most definitely the voice the listeners hate to hear. Many of them turned their radio down, and in recent times, they have strongly suggested calls from her should be terminated. She is an Obama Zombie, the intolerant tolerant. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t abide by â&#x20AC;&#x153;no stinkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rules.â&#x20AC;? This caller who is obvi-

ously a â&#x20AC;&#x153;faithful listenerâ&#x20AC;? tells me on air who I should have for guests, what to discuss, and then suggests that local businesses should NOT purchase ads which would possibly limit airtime for my 4-time award winning program. Oh, did I mention that for all these years she fears that someone will identify her. She is rude and mean, and she wants to remain anonymous? ******** Call it what you will; subsidized housing, lowincome housing, etc. Did the taxpayers pay for these buildings or not? When did many of these projects, slums, or a ghetto appear across America, was it after the residents took possession of the apartment? Barack or Rahm, perhaps you could answer this for me, being from Chicago. I believe the American taxpayers, not the government, own the buildings, so could you please see that the folks who occupy these TF dwellings, act accordingly as good citizens. ******** Barack I know you are busy planning the Road to Socialism, Part II, in your next term. There are instances in the past 4 years that many of us have gotten the feeling that you and Mrs. Obama have been really angry at America for many years. You do recall that Mrs. O said after your victory, this is the FIRST TIME, she has been proud of our country? ******** Thanks to for the inspiration of the following.Ray Gaster, a Viet Nam Vet, started a business 28 years ago, now three locations in Savannah, Georgia area.

But he bounced back to win the 2011 U.S. Open with a record-setting score.

Players carry, bounce, kick, hand-pass and solo the ball into scoring position. Two types of scores are possible: points and goals. A point is awarded for kicking or handpassing the ball over the crossbar, signaled by the umpire raising a white flag. A goal is awarded for kicking the ball under the crossbar into the net, signaled by the umpire raising a green flag. Hurling has been played for at least 3,000 years, and has been called the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fastest field team game. It shares a number of features with Gaelic Football, such as the field, goals, number of players and terminology. Hurlers use wooden sticks called hurleys to hit a small ball called a sliotar  between the opponentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; goalposts either over the crossbar for one

Trinity College is another Dublin Landmark. moffett from 15

sic station. I did eventually find a sports-talk radio station, hosted by a knowledgeable and polite woman. The show featured none of the ranting so typical of American sports talk radio. As to being on the road, driving the narrow Irish thoroughfares was truly terrifying. The roads in some parts of the country are approximately 15 feet wide, with ancient stone walls taking up space that in America we would call SHOULDERS. Driving on the left side of the road in a car with a steering wheel on the right is disconcerting enough, but to have trucks and buses barreling down on you at almost 60 miles per hour with only inches to spare between traffic lanes is to have your life pass before your eyes as you brace for collisions that somehow never happened. The speed limit on these country lanes was 100 kilometers per hour (63 mph). Crazy. Irish Sights Still, the ancient country roads eventually led to modern multi-laned highways which took our American travelers to the Irish capital of Dublin, with all its history. A visit to Trinity College to see the 1200 year-old Book of Kells was a must, as was a service at St. Patrick’s Cathedral. That the Irish have a long history was made apparent by a visit to the massive Newgrange and Knowth burial sites, the construction of which pre-

dated that of both Stonehenge and the great Pyramids of Egypt. A trip back across the country brought the American visitors through County Cork to the famed Cliffs of Moher on the west coast in County Clare, and later to stirring vistas in the highlands around County Kerry. Highlands Time didn’t quite allow for a climb of Carrantuohill Mountain, the highest point in Ireland at 3414 feet. I did don my green 2008 Boston Celtic championship t-shirt to ascend nearby Kerry Mountain. The word “Celtic” (pronounced “Keltic”) is everywhere in Ireland. The Celtic people flourished in ancient Ireland, prior to the Vikings coming to plunder, pillage, and rape, and before the English inflicted their own depredations upon the Irish people. I had my photo taken next to a cairn atop Kerry Mountain just before an older, diminutive whitehaired man bounded up to the summit. We chatted for a while and he explained he often ran up and down Carrantuohill and adjacent mountains to stay in shape for expeditions to Africa’s Mt. Kilimanjaro. The leprechaunlike hiker shared some local history in a delightful Irish brogue before picking up his walking stick and bounding down the mountain, disappearing into a late July mist. Irish Love As our time in Eire drew

You are never sure when you’ll run into a leprechaun in Ireland. short, I chatted up local pub patrons, who confirmed that their economy was indeed in dire straits, Ireland having been hit especially hard by the post-2008 world recession. But if the Irish were poorer financially, they remained rich in spirit -- generous and hospitable to Americans. In

fact, they seemed to love Americans more than any other people I’d met anywhere else in my travels, which include England, France, Norway, Afghanistan, Panama, Japan and Hawaii. (Yes, I know Hawaiians are Americans, but a lot of Hawaiians just don’t seem to like American mainlanders.)

During my last day in Ireland, I was a bit anxious about my return flights from Shannon to London Heathrow to Boston Logan Airports. A lot of Olympic traffic was coming into London, and I braced for possible delays. While waiting, I concluded that Ireland was the best See moffett on 21

I pulled out an Irish newspaper Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d saved and reviewed an impressive 16-page sports section, which included a wonderful firstperson â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tour Diaryâ&#x20AC;? of cyclist Nicholas Roche, who was hoping for a top ten finish in the on-going Tour-de-France. The cycling news augmented the many stories and col-

umns on soccer, hurling, Gaelic Football, horse racing, and golf. That sports were so important to the Irish really resonated with me.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand how and why they did this without following their own rules before allowing us to make our case,â&#x20AC;? Zucker said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It almost seems like they simply wanted to put our products and industry out of business.â&#x20AC;? The magnetic toy company is not alone. The heavy-handed CPSC is notorious for imposing nonsensical rules that have decimated small businesses across the country. A hysterical overreaction to lead in childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s toys three years ago ushered in a trial lawyer-friendly nationwide witch hunt against handmade toymakers, manufacturers of artisanal books, sellers of musical instruments and other educational entrepreneurs.

Richard Woldenberg of the family-run Learning Resources, Inc., summed up the nosybodies run amok last year: â&#x20AC;&#x153;As directed by Congress, the CPSC has dutifully banned the sale of rhinestones to children, ended the era of youth model ATVs and forbidden the use of brass bushings in toy car wheel assemblies. Why? They might emit a single atom of lead! ... Advocates have never produced victim case histories to justify the draconian rules and simply wag their fingers at anyone daring to question their cherished law.â&#x20AC;? In 2001, I reported on the CPSCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crackdown on baby bath seats -which was based on dubious fatality statistics that whitewashed parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; idiotic decisions to leave infants alone in the seats or with younger siblings

who dumped the babies into the tubs to drown. According to the manufacturers, all but three of the bath-seat deaths cited by the feds over the past two decades occurred when a child was left alone. Government paternalism is wreaking havoc on the economy. They have self-made entrepreneurs who refuse to play their games by the balls. The Nanny State is not a lifesaver. It is a self-serving serial job-killer. If Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s builders donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand together, the American Dream wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last for long.

started to build a new gundalow. In 2011, with funding in place, construction began on the Piscataqua. Six professional boat builders worked with 50 volunteers who contributed over 2,500 hours until the new gundalow was completed. There was a launch in December of 2012 and the first official season began in May. Once we were underway

under the power of engine, it was hard for me to discern exactly where we were. The fog was a bit heavy, but it slowly began to lift, very slowly. It was nice to be on the water, that calming effect I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had much of lately. Still, I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let my guard down. After all, I was on assignment.

I would have helped, but someone needed to take the pictures. Heather Froumy explained the handing of the Main Sheet, to the four passengers who jumped to her assistance.. It was effortless team work as soon the sail was unfurled to its full length and the real beauty of the Piscataqua was apparent. The fog kept us a little limited to where we would sail that day. Captain Glenn said it was one of the foggiest mornings he had seen all season, just my luck. He said that he would usually take the Piscataqua a bit further into the harbor. After awhile, Captain Glenn shut off the engine and we were under full sail; the only gundalow on the water. Captain Glenn came on board with the Gundalow Company to take the helm of the vessel in March. His previous experience impressive. He holds a 500 ton Ocean Masters license. He has served as a deck hand and mate on a number of tall ships in the Atlantic and Pacific, was a schooner captain in New Jersey and Boston and had even spent a season as a deckhand on a tugboat. So, we were in good hands. His wife, Megan, soon gathered up the passengers in her role as onSee Gundalow on 34

I must admit I thought, at first, it was just an exercise in, well, something to do, but I soon became absorbed in the process as well. To see a tablespoon full of Piscataqua water in a magnified setting, and the hundreds of shrimp-like microscopic plankton and then look out upon the river itself

and try to multiply that number to the point of exhaustion, is truly an eye-opening experience. The entire eco-chain in the Piscataqua depended on them. Even at 56 years of age I am amazed at what you can still learn every day if you just pay attention. Soon the lesson was over and we relaxed as

we sailed by the shores of Portsmouth and Kittery. I saw a man playing “fetch the stick” with his dog off of Pierce Isand. Seemed innocent enough until Captain Glenn explained that the current at that particular point created a riptide, which you could see, and that dogs had been lost there See Gundalow on 38

in the past. A bit frightening. Soon it was time to “Ready The Brail” as Captain Glenn shouted and Heather and Megan, along with the very enthusiastic young passengers, worked hard at bringing in the sail. We cruised the rest of the way under engine power, past the Portsmouth Navy Yard, cordoned off by fencing in the water and signs reminding us to not even think about coming close. I spied a few workers along the perimeter who were, most likely since they were wearing side arms, not there to build ships. I was even a little

Oh yeah, this is the “head” I didn’t make the trip so I can’t tell you anything. You’ll have to find out for yourself. nervous about snapping photos, but all went well. Then it was back to the dock at Prescott Park. The fog was completely lifted now and it looked like the 2-4pm cruise might have a little better view than we did. I would have liked

to have taken that cruise but I had to get back to write this story. There are a lot of ways you can enjoy a trip aboard the Piscataqua. There are morning, afternoon and sunset sails as well as speciality sails on Thursday evenings which provide either entertainment by local musicians or programs by special maritime and environmental experts. They are BYOB and you are encouraged to pack a picnic lunch as well. A full listing of Thursday sails can be seen on their website at Cost for a public sail is $35 for adults and $15 ages 5-12. There are also private charter rates for both cruises and dockside gatherings aboard the Piscataqua. There are also opportunities to book school field trips and discounts for educators by calling 603-4339505 or emailing educaSee gundalow on 41

THE WEIRS TIMES & THE COCHECO TIMES, Thursday, August 9, 2012 north from 8

process was instituted, not a single year has passed without the unauthorized disclosure of very sensitive national security information. Just months after the procedures were put in place, the Los Angeles Times and The New York Times carried articles describing a CIA covert operation to recover and exploit a sunken Soviet nuclear submarine in the Pacific. Later that year, the names of dozens of CIA personnel working undercover overseas were published. Shortly thereafter, Richard Welch -- the CIA station chief in Athens, Greece -was murdered. Stanislav Lunev, a Soviet military intelligence officer who defected to the United States in 1992, wrote in his memoir, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Through the Eyes of the Enemy,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was amazed -- and Moscow was very appreciative -- at how many times I found very sensitive information in American newspapers.â&#x20AC;? The Soviet Union is gone. But the leak problem

isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Radical Islamic terrorists now benefit in the same way as our Cold War adversaries. In 1998, major U.S. media outlets revealed that the National Security Agency was able to monitor Osama bin Ladenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conversations on his satellite telephone. Within days, bin Laden stopped using the phone, and less than three years later, nearly 3,000 people died in the 9/11 attacks. The carnage at the World Trade Center, at the Pentagon and in a farm field in Somerset County, Pa., hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deterred leakers, either. On June 8 of this year, Attorney General Eric Holder pledged that the Obama administration would investigate and bring leakers to justice. And now, we have yet another leak, this one about a presidential finding to provide â&#x20AC;&#x153;covert supportâ&#x20AC;? to the Syrian opposition. So much for swift justice. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing about this revelation is that there is nothing covert about

what little the United States is doing to support opponents of al-Assadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brutal regime in Damascus. In fact, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton announced it all publicly on April 1, in Istanbul, Turkey -- April Foolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Day here at home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I detailed measures that the United States is taking,â&#x20AC;? she said, and went on to describe everything that has been written and said about the presidential finding: financial aid, communications support, training, medical aid and humanitarian aid for refugees. This begs the question: If this presidential finding was issued months ago, why leak it now? Four reasons are evident: First, the White House wants to deflect blame for not doing enough to prevent al-Assad -- and anyone else in the neighborhood -- from using Syriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stores of chemical or biological weapons. Second, they knew in advance that Kofi Annan, the United Nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;peace

planner,â&#x20AC;? was about to step down -- and blame everyone for his failure. Third, the O-Team doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want us dwelling on our appalling lack of human intelligence about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really happening on the ground in Syria and who is likely to take over when this civil war is over. But most telling of all is the inescapable conclusion that leaks have become the new normal for the White House and our media. A leak of â&#x20AC;&#x153;classified informationâ&#x20AC;? gets play -but a press release about helping the rebels wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. A press conference requires straightforward answers to questions. Leaks donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. The O-Team is full of master leakers. If you want to solve the mystery of â&#x20AC;&#x153;whodunit,â&#x20AC;? donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count on Eric Holder. Call Sherlock Holmes.

Salome’s Stars Horoscope ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Relationships continue to thrive, but watch for any telltale signs of potential problems. Take needed action now to set things straight before they become troublesome later. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your powers of persuasion, backed up, of course, by your considerable expertise, help you establish your case even to the most dubious decision-makers in your workplace. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might still be a bit reluctant to face up to some less-than-pleasant realities. But the sooner you accept the facts, the sooner you can set about making some needed changes. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Expect to make adjustments, even when things seem locked up and ready to go. But cheer up: At least one change could lead to something you’ve been hoping for. LEO (July 23 to August 22) The success of a recent project should do a lot to boost your self-confidence. You might want to

It takes time for a budding relationship to blossom. Show more patience and understanding. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You have lots of inner strength in reserve. Use some of it to resist intimidation from those who might try to impose on your good nature for their own reasons. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) The good news is that your on-the-job status is improving. The one cautionary note, however, involves a personal situation you might have been ignoring for too long. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Congratulations. Once again, your sharp Sagittarian “horse sense” helps you work through a complicated situation that would leave most people confused.

longer. This is one of those heads-I-win-and-tailsyou-lose arguments. Even if the government spends itself into bankruptcy and the economy still does not recover, Keynesians can always say that it would have worked if only the government had spent more. Although Milton Friedman became someone regarded as a conservative icon, he considered himself a liberal in the original sense of the word -- someone who believes in the liberty of the indimetzler from 9

Gold in Judo, Hungary a Gold in Fencing, and Germany Gold in equestrian. Expect the medal standings to show dramatic shifts in the next days. An academic question? Do the powerhouse sporting teams largely come from the biggest G-8 economies? Most do such as the USA, France, Italy, Germany, Russia and Japan. But Britain and Canada have not as of yet. Furthermore while many economists have touted the virtues of the BRICS; the business acronym for the purportedly mega-economies of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, it’s really only China and Russia who score in the top ten list in sports here.

vidual, free of government intrusions. Far from trying to conserve things as they are, he wrote a book titled “Tyranny of the Status Quo.” Milton Friedman proposed radical changes in policies and institution ranging from the public schools to the Federal Reserve. It is liberals who want to conserve and expand the welfare state. As a student of Professor Friedman back in 1960, I was struck by two things -- his tough grading standards and the fact that he had a black secretary. This was years

before affirmative action. People on the left exhibit blacks as mascots. But I never heard Milton Friedman say that he had a black secretary, though she was with him for decades. Both his grading standards and his refusal to try to be politically correct increased my respect for him.

What about population size? Well, there’s no question about Mainland China but what about nearly as populous India? The USA has a large population as does Brazil, but Team USA leads without question. What about the actual sports offered? Both team and individual sports usually favor the big countries, but if this were the winter Olympics, small populations countries like Austria, Norway and Switzerland would score disproportionally well. And despite all the hype and spectacle for the Summer Olympics, do the Games really excite interest? Surprisingly a poll in the French daily Le Figaro found that a mere 50 percent of the people were

interested in the Olympic Games with 49.9 percent saying they are not. Still stated another way the Olympics provide a welcome respite from the seemingly endless Euro banking crisis, conflict in the Middle East, and perpetual political campaign in the USA. Although the clash of sports teams does not seem to reach the din and hyper-nationalism of World Cup Football, the Olympics certainly provide a proper venue for excellence, national pride, and the often once in a lifetime chance for athletes’ to set sporting records.
