“Shall We Have A Hospital?”

The Story of Origin & History Of Lakes Region General Hospital Told Through New Exhibit at The Laconia Library attention and the pleasant surroundings for which they gladly pay.” So went an editorial in the Laconia Democrat on November 27th, 1891, thus prompting a series of events which led to, what is today, Lakes Region General Hospital. The Laconia Historical Society has put together

a fantastic exhibit at the Laconia Library telling the story of the development and progression of the hospital in words, pictures and artifacts. The exhibit will run through the rest of the year. After reading that editorial in the Laconia Democrat, Mrs. Rhoda C. Ladd of Court Street in Laconia, was prompted to name

Laconia in her will. (Laconia was, at that time, still a town.) When Mrs. Ladd died on December 21, 1892 made the town her residuary legatee (meaning anything left in the estate after other bequeathed items). “…. I give to the town of Laconia in trust for the See hospital on 14

“We notice that the people of both Claremont and Exeter are moving to supply their towns with a hospital and this fact naturally suggests that Laconia is in quite as much need of something of the sort of her sister towns. In a town this size, cases are frequently met with when parties falling sick are unable to command the


Laconia Hospital in 1966, Today, Lakes Region General Hospital sits on this site, deeded to the then Town of Laconia in 1905 by Rev. Jeremiah S. Jewett. Laconia’s first hospital was a cottage hospital that came to fruition in 1898 through the kindness and dedication of some Laconia citizens. An exhibit telling the complete history of this major New Hampshire hospital is on display at the Laconia Library through December. courtesy Photo

On Wednesday, October 2nd at 7pm, The Lake Winnipesaukee Historical Society presents “Black Bear Happenings in NH”, featuring Candice Rogers, NH Fish & Game Wildlife Steward. At the talk, Candice will explore the natural history of our native black bears, current research being done on black bears in New Hampshire, and how this powerful species is managed in the Granite State. You’ll learn some intriguing facts about bears, including how the quality of habitat affects bear productivity and how food provided by humans can affect that natural balance. You’ll also hear about the Federal Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program, now in its 75th year, which makes wildlife management work possible. This program is free for members, $5/non-members. 366-5950 to RSVP. The Lake Winnipesaukee is located on Route 3 in the Weirs, next door to Funspot.

N.H. Youth Waterfowl Hunt Weekend New Hampshire’s 2013 Youth Waterfowl Hunting Weekend will be held statewide on Saturday and Sunday, September 28-29. To participate, youth must be age 15 or younger and must be accompanied by a properly licensed adult age 18 or older. The adult may not hunt. The youth does not need a hunting license or duck stamp. “The youth weekend is a great way to get kids involved in waterfowl hunting. It gives them a chance to go with an adult who knows the sport, at a time when it’s still fairly warm and good numbers of birds are around,” said Ed Robinson, waterfowl biologist for the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department. “Quality time spent with a child during the youth weekend can help instill in them an appreciation of hunting lore, ethics and our outdoor environment.” All regular season waterfowl regulations, including shooting hours, use of non-toxic shot, etc., apply during the youth weekend. Specific seasons and bag limits for various waterfowl are listed on the Fish and Game website at hunt_waterfowl.htm. The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department works in partnership with the public to conserve the state’s fish, wildlife and marine resources and their habitats. Visit

Live Free or Die.


Staying Fit

by Brendan Smith Weirs Times Editor

As I reach the winter of my fifty-seventh year I admit that I don’t have the get up and go that I had when I was seventeen. In fact, I don’t have the get up and go I had when I was forty-seven. For a lot of men my age, “get up and go” is something that they deal with a few times in the middle of the night. I think that too much “get up and go” at the wrong time leads to not enough actual get up and go when it is really needed. Of course, it is important as you age that you try to keep up some sort of exercise regime. Getting exercise and moving around is more important as we get older. (Note: for you men “get up and go” does not count for exercise.) I have, through my life, always been aware of the need to exercise. That doesn’t mean I’ve always done it, it just means I have been aware of the need. Recently, we purchased a treadmill and put it in the basement. Legend has it that people buy treadmills with the best intentions but then soon lose interest. This can be verified by going to any yard sale. Nine out of ten times you will see a used treadmill or some other expensive piece of exercise equipment for sale. It is easy to negotiate a price with the owners, who are usually at the yard sale eating

doughnuts, since they will do anything to get rid of the beast and not have to drag it back into the house. In fact, getting the damned thing out of the house and onto the lawn in the first place is most likely the most exercise they have gotten with the machine in a few years. Up to this point, we have made good use of our treadmill. If we are not walking or running on it, we occasionally use the handles to hang wet clothes that are not meant for the dryer. It’s been almost a year since we bought it and I use the treadmill a good four or five times a week. I do enjoy it more than when I used to belong to a gym. Buying a gym membership is similar to buying an exercise machine. It is usually done with great intentions but then, after a few tries, other things get in the way, like the new season of “American Idol.” Unfortunately, you cannot get rid of a gym membership at a yard sale. I was never much of a weight guy when I was at the gym, but I would occasionally drift into the Nautilus Room. This is where you could, using odd looking machines and tone up parts of your body you didn’t know you could tone. “Man, look at the muscles on that guy’s index finger.” “Ears are looking good, Joe!” The Nautilus machines are stressful. If you don’t adjust them properly, it is all for naught. Once, I was using a chest machine for two weeks and had the seat level on 3. I was told by an instructor that it really should be on 2. It was clear that my chest wasn’t getting any bigger. I failed to notice,

until it was too late, that my right shoulder was now big enough to play a game of chess on. Once, I mistakenly went into the free weight room. Guys, the size of Mount Washington, wearing large leather belts were lifting Mini-Cooper sized weights over their heads with one hand. All eyes turned towards me. In order to keep my pride, I went to the largest dumbbell (the weights, of course) and lifted it over my head without thinking. After I put it down, I got a thumbs up from the Mount Washingtons and then quietly left. My arm and neck were sore for two weeks. I never dared cross into the free weight room again. I used to use the sauna at the gym, it seemed like a real benefit since it was something you couldn’t do at home. After a few months of spending ten minutes in a room with a lot of hot, sweaty, naked guys, the benefit of it suddenly eluded me. At fifty-seven, I’m happy with just the treadmill and so is my doctor. It is because of his insistence that I sometimes force myself to get on the thing. Still, once I am done with a workout I do feel great and glad I did it. The doctors have also told me I shouldn’t go crazy trying to lift heavy things so I guess I’m stuck with it since I’d never be able to get it out onto the lawn for a yard sale.

Urgent Matter To The Editor: In 1989 Stuart M. Butler of the conservative Heritage Foundation published a proposal called “Assuring Affordable Health Care for All Americans,” which included a provision to “mandate all households to obtain adequate insurance.” In 2006 Mitt Romney, Republican governor of Massachusetts signed off on a law requiring individuals of the state to purchase health insurance. This law has proven successful and is popular with the satisfied citizens of Massachusetts. It served as a template for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) put into place by President Obama’s signature in 2010. ACA puts the private health insurance market within the reach of millions who will deal directly with their providers and the insurers - the farthest thing from a “government take-over of health care.” It all sounds like a Republican dream come true! But no - it’s a Republican nightmare - a “train wreck,” a tornado that will leave “nobody safe from its wrath!” What is keeping Republicans up a night is a very scary thought - Americans able to see for themselves the benefits of ACA and Obama being given credit for it! Yes, “the fight to stop ObamaCare now is an urgent matter” for the GOP! One wonders how a Re-

Workforce Housing To The Editor: What is happening at the Lakes Regional Planning Commission in Meredith?

Email of 9-1-13---this email asked for the format of this workshop, and is the public allowed questions. As of 9-1513, I have not received acknowledgement from Mr.Coogan. Email dated 9-4-13...

be less input from “WE the PEOPLE”. I think the time should be changed to accommodate the “Working Class”. As of 9-15-13 . I have not received acknowledgement from Me. Coogan! This appears to be an illegal “Public Meeting” because most people who pay taxes and work are unable to attend. Can people walk away from their jobs at 11AM? Why would you have a public meeting without a majority of the people? Under your Enabling Statute--RSA 36:47,General Powers & Duties, the Regional Planning Commission’s are required “to make a good faith effort and respond to our communities”. Having meetings during the lunch hour is not a Good Faith effort , particularly when you’ve had other meetings in the evening when more tax payers can attend. Those who show up are not a representative of the majority of taxpayers in any community. It is offensive that you would hold this important hearing at a time which is only marginally consistent with due process of law and suggests that you want to do an end-run around important public input. The meeting should be rescheduled for an evening time. Rosemary Landry Meredith, NH.

THE WEIRS TIMES & THE COCHECO TIMES, Thursday, September 26, 2013

From The State House Time to Wake Up and Stand for LOCAL Control! It has been a very exciting week in Alton. On Sept. 16, Alton became the first community in NH to vote AGAINST Comby Rep. Jane mon Core. The Cormier School Board Belknap District 8 vote of 3 – 2 was a vote for local control as it became apparent that local governance was eroding under the mandating weight of Common Core. It was a spirited debate to be sure, but one which included all sides of the issue. I am very sure there will be much more to come in the days ahead and we will keep you posted.

On September 18, the Alton Business Association graciously hosted a presentation of Workforce Housing with Ken McWilliams, Alton Town Planner, and Steve Whitman of Jeffrey Taylor and Associates. Alton voted down three warrant articles on housing ordinances in March 2013, but the Town Planner continues to believe more “education” is needed for citizens to understand Workforce Housing state laws. I think we learned more than we perhaps wanted to know! For instance, we learned Mr. McWilliams wrote a HUD Grant for $30,000 with the paid assistance of Steve Whitman, who was then awarded the actual $30,000 grant! When asked See cormier on 35

Warning: Our Government Is a Threat to Public Safety Forget gun control. America needs government control. Have you noticed the common thread among several mass killings and by Michelle Malkin h o m e l a n d Syndicated Columnist security incidents lately? Time and again, it’s the control freaks in Washington who have fallen down on their jobs, allowing crazies, creeps and criminals to roam free and wreak havoc while ignoring rampant red flags. Let’s review: Washington Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis: Despite gun-grabbing Democrats’ best efforts to blame a nonexistent “AR-15” for this week’s horrific Navy Yard massacre, the truth is seeping out about shooter Aaron Alexis. The 34-year-old Navy veteran had been treated since August by the Veterans Administration for a host of mental problems that plagued him for up to a decade. Officials say Alexis was paranoid, had a sleep disorder, suffered from schizophrenia and was “hearing voices.” He told Newport, R.I., police after an altercation just last month that he believed a “microwave machine” was sending vibrations through a wall into his body. Friends say he was a heavy drinker and violent video game addict. A ticking time bomb, he had racked up a string of misconduct incidents during his military stint ranging from absenteeism to insubordination to disorderly conduct. He was arrested in Seattle in 2004 and in Fort Worth, Texas, in 2010 for separate anger-fueled shootings that terrorized neighbors and innocent bystanders.

Yet somehow Alexis passed several military background checks, gained high-level security clearance and had access to multiple military installations. The civilian contractor who employed Alexis blasted the feds on Tuesday for failing to fully disclose his history. “Anything that suggests criminal problems or mental health issues, that would be a flag,” Thomas Hoshko of The Experts told The Washington Post. “We would not have hired him.” And 12 innocent people might still be alive today. Fort Hood jihadist Nidal Hasan: The red flag-ignoring government seems to have become an affirmative action employer for rage-filled madmen. Fort Hood jihadist Nidal Hasan, sentenced to death last month, had warned his military superiors well in advance of the massacre that he was prone to violence. Citing convicted Army fragger Hasan Akbar and others, Hasan emphasized that he was not alone among Muslim soldiers who believed they “should not serve in any capacity that renders them at risk to hurting/killing believers unjustly.” The feds buried concerns about Hasan and instead kept him employed to prevent accusations of discrimination. They did not want to be “crucified,” according to one Army investigator. Twelve innocent men and women, plus one unborn baby, died as a consequence of the government’s malign neglect and feckless indulgence of political correctness. TSA nutball Nna Alpha Onuoha: Then there’s the TSA. Last week, a former TSA agent was arrested on the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks for calling in threats to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and warning that there would be a “baptism of fire” on 9/11/13. Investigators found a

Syria Crisis Clouds UN General Assembly Session UNITED NATIONS—P r e s i -

dents, Prime Ministers, Kings and Potentates will be in New York for the 68th annual by John J. Metzler U N G e n e r a l Syndicated Columnist Assembly. The ongoing Syrian crisis and the toxic haze of recent chemical weapons use, clouds the diplomatic horizon at the global gathering as delegates confront issues of war, peace and widening humanitarian disasters. But it’s the General Debate, the key policy speeches over the next two weeks where the headlines are generated, that’s the highlight of the session. While delegates speak with broad brush themes concerning development, disarmament, poverty and peacekeeping, be certain the focus will remain on Syria’s ongoing civil conflict and the regional shockwaves reverberating throughout the Middle East from Turkey to Lebanon and Jordan. By tradition Brazil speaks first followed by the United States. Normally this is a gracious formality between two friendly nations but this year Brazil’s leftist President is irate over alleged U.S. electronic eavesdropping on her government and herself personally. Dilma Rousseff has taken the unprecedented step to cancel a State visit to Washington D.C. planned for October. Brazil a close U.S. Latin American ally and rising economic power has been plainly insulted by the eavesdropping allegations and it looks like political damage control won’t work this late in the process. Key figures to speak opening day after Brazil and the USA’s Obama include, Argentina’s President Christina FernandezKirchner, Islamic Iran’s Hassan Rouhani, France’s Francois Hollande, and Mexico’s Enrique Pena Nieto. King Abdullah of Jordan, probably the most erudite and sagacious speaker on the first day, as well as the Monarchs of Monaco and Qatar shall also

address the delegates. More controversial leaders to speak besides Iran, include Zimbabwe’s longtime dictator Robert Mugabe, Bolivia’s buffo ruler Ivo Morales, and Venezuela’s up and coming demagogue Nicolas Maduro. At the same time will President Obama use the diplomatic occasion in New York to just “coincidently” meet with his Iranian counterpart to discuss and attempt to defuse global concerns over Tehran’s embryonic nuclear weapons program? Contrary to past years, delegations from 193 UN member states will not meet under the dome in the majestic General Assembly hall with its soaring ceilings, marble rostrums and aura of history but rather in what looks like an IKEAtype building with low ceilings, functional furniture, and a faux marble rostrum more akin to a model UN than to the real deal. Given that the Assembly hall is under renovation, as was the 38 story UN Secretariat building for the past five years, the whole presence looks a bit low budget. One hundred thirty-one heads of State and Government will attend the session as shall sixty Foreign Ministers. Yet many of the heavy-hitter countries such as the United Kingdom, Canada, China, Germany, Russia, and South Korea will be represented by their respective Foreign Ministers. There’s the plethora of 174 Assembly agenda items to wade through; from hot button political issues, to vital peacekeeping operations, and budgetary items to a gaggle of the usual perfunctory anti-Israel resolutions, and slap on the wrist items ranging from the Question of the Falkland Islands to the continuing American economic embargo on Cuba. Many of the agenda items center on the mantra of sustainable development. After the controversial one year tenure of Serbia’s Vuk Jeremic, this year’s new Assembly President Dr. John Ashe hails from Antigua and Barbuda in the Caribbean. Secretary General Ban Kimoon, himself from Korea, addressed some of the key devel-

opment concerns on the eve of the Assembly. “While global economic trends are slowly improving, the crisis continues to takes its toll; for the first time official development assistance (ODA) has fallen for two con-

secutive years,” the Secretary General said. Indeed according to a UN report, ODA declined in 2012, down to $126 billion from $134 billion in 2011, mainly due to fiscal austerity measures

Minimum Wage Madness Political crusades for raising the minimum wage are back again. Advocates of minimum wage laws often give themselves credit for being more by Thomas Sowell “compassionSyndicated Columnist ate” towards “the poor.” But they seldom bother to check what are the actual consequences of such laws. One of the simplest and most fundamental economic principles is that people tend to buy more when the price is lower and less when the price is higher. Yet advocates of minimum wage laws seem to think that the government can raise the price of labor without reducing the amount of labor that will be hired. When you turn from economic principles to hard facts, the case against minimum wage laws is even stronger. Countries with minimum wage laws almost invariably

have higher rates of unemployment than countries without minimum wage laws. Most nations today have minimum wage laws, but they have not always had them. Unemployment rates have been very much lower in places and times when there were no minimum wage laws. Switzerland is one of the few modern nations without a minimum wage law. In 2003, “The Economist” magazine reported: “Switzerland’s unemployment neared a five-year high of 3.9 percent in February.” In February of this year, Switzerland’s unemployment rate was 3.1 percent. A recent issue of “The Economist” showed Switzerland’s unemployment rate as 2.1 percent. Most Americans today have never seen unemployment rates that low. However, there was a time when there was no federal minimum wage law in the United States. The last time was during the Coolidge administration, when the annual unemployment rate got as low as See Sowell on 28

Fight Seasonal Flu by Getting Vaccinated Fall is just around the corner, and with the colder weather each year comes flu season. “The flu vaccine is one of the best ways we can protect ourselves and our families from the flu,” said LRGHealthcare Medical Director of Infection Control Dr. Abigail Dacuycuy. “The CDC recommends that everyone, six months and older

should get a flu vaccine, and we support this recommendation. For some people, the flu is truly a health risk; for others, it is just an inconvenience, but everyone benefits from limiting its spread in our community. Widespread vaccination, including vaccination of children, is the best way to protect everyone in our community.”

Your Health is in Your Hands by Dr. Graham Moneysmith, DC. Contributing Writer

Have you ever taken the time to consider the difference between what’s “normal” and what’s “common”? When it comes to our health there is much that we accept as normal when actually it’s just common. Here’s what I mean: take headaches. We have many folks who come into out offices and say something along the lines of, “well I have headaches a couple times of month, like everybody else”. See the difference? Headaches may be common, but they are not normal. Our failure to make this differentiation is quite detrimental to our health. We begin to see problems or issues in our health as normal, just because so many other people have the same issues….mom said if your friends all jumped off bridges, right?. We look around at a very unhealthy culture and see issues. We see people in pain, people on a multitude of meds just to “function”, and we see too much illness and disease. We begin to believe that if everyone has these problems this commonly then they must be normal. Here’s the problem: our country is not healthy and a poor example to build a normal. We have high obesity rates, lifestyle disease rates, we spend more on healthcare than any other nation, and we take the bulk of the world’s medication. When it comes to health we are failing and so is our system. A first step in the right direction will be to create a new normal. A normal that may not be common, but more closely resembles what God made

our bodies to do. Here are a few places to create a new normal: 1) Exercise: the common way is to say that you don’t have enough time. The day is simply too busy to find 30-60 minutes of activity. The truth is that the day is too busy because we have fallen into the cultural norm of cramming every minute so full that we are stressed, exhausted, and overwhelmed. You do have enough time, because you will make the time. If you don’t create the space for healthy choices, your body will eventually become worn so thin that it will simply shut you down via exhaustion, injury, etc. Trust me it’s better to create the time on your own terms. 2) Food: we think eating processed, convenient, and cheap “food” is normal. It seems to be, because it is so readily available and look at how busy fast food places seem to be. This cultural “norm” will damage your health, your waistline, and your lifespan. We as a country are overfed and undernourished. It’s time to follow a simple rule: if it didn’t grow from the ground, or walk/swim/ fly… probably don’t need to eat it. Or if you can’t instantly recognize the stuff on the ingredients list of a product….you, again, should probably skip it. Don’t overcomplicate it. Michael Pollan in his book “The Omnivore’s Dilemma” summed it up perfectly: “Eat food. Not too much.

Mostly plants.” Follow this and food confusion should be simplified. 3) Pain: we have begun to believe that pain is normal because it is so common. We say things like “it’s just my normal pain”. This is crazy. No pain is normal. Needing pain meds to function, whether over the counter or prescription, is not normal. People pop Advil like breath mints, but this doesn’t make it normal. Start respecting pain for what it is: not a problem, but information on what’s happening in your body. If you get low back pain, don’t ignore it or cover it with pain meds. Doing this overlooks that your body is signaling that there is damage occurring. If we push the symptoms aside either by drugs or toughing it out, we allow the area to continue to be damaged and eventually it will breakdown and you will require a major intervention. Care for yourself at the first hint of pain; discover the cause and get it fixed not hidden. If you keep living in the common ways of our culture, believing them to be normal, then you will always have the health of our culture. Further, if you have the health of our culture, you probably fall victim to the some of the most common killers of our people: preventable lifestyle deaths. Clearly, it’s time for a new normal and that starts with a change of your mind.

ACAM To Provide Arcade Exhibit At Granite State Comicon

The American Classic Arcade Museum (ACAM), located inside the Funspot Family Entertainment Center, is constantly in demand to provide exhibits of classic arcade games to various gaming conventions around the United States. ACAM has been proud to participate in these events and demonstrate to the public at large why it is so important to preserve these classic games for future generations. In just a few short days, ACAM will open a new chapter of trade show appearances at, of all places, a comic book show. ACAM will be providing an arcade exhibit featuring popular games from the 1970’s and 1980’s at the 2013 Granite State Comicon. The event will be held in Manchester, NH on September 28th and 29th at the Radisson Center of New Hampshire. Now in its 10th year, the Granite State Comicon is the largest comic convention in the state. Founded by Double Midnight Comics of Manchester, the convention features comic book

and collectibles dealers, guest artists & writers, table top and video game tournaments, costuming and other events. According to convention organizer Chris Proulx, the goal of this event has been to bring a slice of the big city comic shows to the Granite State. “For the first few years the show was relatively small,” said Proulx. “However, the last few years have shown tremendous growth and a definite spike in attendance. Geek culture has crossed into the mainstream thanks to Marvel’s movies (Iron Man, Captain America, The Avengers, etc.) and television shows like The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. That mainstreaming has led to an increased interest in comic book conventions.” Do videogames tie in with comic books? “Absolutely,” said Mike Stulir, one of the Directors of ACAM. “Comic books, video games, board games, card games and other similar activities all tie together into a form of escapism. We see a lot of people with lives, careers

and responsibilities that are always on the lookout for a way to briefly escape their reality as a form of relaxation. At ACAM, our escapism is arcade games. The comic book fans look for the same escapism we do, but achieve it in a different way. I think ACAM will feel right at home while attending this event.” “We are looking forward to participating in our first comic book convention,” said Gary Vincent, President of ACAM. “We have taken an arcade exhibit

on the road for many large video game shows in the past several years, and we think that bringing some of our games to the Granite State Comicon should be a lot of fun.” What can someone expect that attends this event? Well, aside from vendors selling all kinds of comic-related materials, you will be able to see voice actors from TV & movies, costume contests, the Delorean Time Machine from Back to the Future Part 3, and even R2-D2. “Comic book conventions feature things like gaming tournaments, celebrity appearances, costuming and more,” said Proulx. “Comic conventions are a great way for people that are curious about comics, science fiction, horror, etc. to get a taste of everything the geek world has to offer!” The American Classic Arcade Museum is located on the third floor of the massive Funspot Family Entertainment Center in Weirs Beach, NH. ACAM was founded and established as the first 501c3 non-profit facility dedicated to the preservation, history and play of classic arcade games. Funspot is the largest arcade in the world as recognized by the

Guinness Book of World Records. Over the years as more machines were added by being purchased or by donation, the American Classic Arcade Museum became the Mecca for arcade game enthusiasts, and the merely curious. It is now the largest collection of fully operational classic arcade video games in the world. The museum has gained national and international recognition being highlighted in ESPN: The Magazine, MSNBC, EDGE Magazine, Retro Gamer, The Escapist, Yankee Magazine, in-flight airline publications and locally in NH to DO magazine & The Boston Globe. ACAM has also been the backdrop for several feature films and has been utilized by collegiate educational institutions as a learning & research facility for their students.

We are looking forward to the 2014 primaries for state offices, US Congress, and the US Senate. The only question for the progressive/liberal/ Democrat candidates/incumbents is: will you run as far away from Barack Hussein Obama, your leader for six years? Hussein has brought enough TAKERS into the party to be a big boost for any candidate who promises to continue the Obama gravy train. Just a minute republicans, it will not be a cake walk for incumbents. Many of you have stuck your finger in our eye once too many times and we pray and will work for your defeat. It is unfortunate that we will still have to wait until 2016 to clear the buildings of other RINOs and border line criminals, here is a newsflash for you, The Tea Party movement WILL continue. Let’s be just as aggressive with state republicans. There will be a list. Remember in the 60’s and 70’s how we worked hard to dump the RINOs. What good is a republican who will support Democrats with “Republicans for (Democrats name)�? What’s that, you say we need to elect republicans?

In a new campaign ad called “Stand for coal.� Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s voice booms powerfully over a soaring musical score. “I tell you, I will be the leader of the forces that take on the war on coal,� he says over video of pro-coal Kentuckians, an American flag, and McConnell himself. It is really insulting our intelligence when you RINOs lie to our face because we don’t know any better in Mitch’s opinion. Google his name and for or against the coal industry? 30 years in the senate and he is called a leader. Time for Mitch, McCain, Reid, and Pelosi to leave. “ Indeed, just as the Environmental Protection Agency prepared this week to release new rules regulating coal-fired power plants, McConnell pushed to stop the agency from implementing them. Meanwhile, McConnell’s campaign sent out a fundraising email touting his pro-coal credentials. “But, more than two decades ago, McConnell was one of 89 senators who voted for the Clean Air Act amendments that authorized the EPA to regulate such air pollution in the first place.� ******** Thanks DAILY CALLER: “In the wake of the Navy Yard shooting, a journalism professor at the University of Kansas is calling for children of NRA members to be the NEXT people killed in a mass shooting.�

“DAVID GUTH, an associate professor at UK’s journalism school, took to Twitter to lay the blame for the Navy Yard shooting on the shoulders of NRA members. If anyone has to die in a mass shooting, it should be their children.� FRIEND: He’s too blinded by his ideology to understand that those “no gun zones� should be relabeled “killing zones�. A statement issued Friday by UK Chancellor saying: “in order to prevent disruptions to the learning environment.� DC: “Guth was placed on indefinite administrative leave pending a review. His classes will be taught by other faculty members.� ******** Will the Republicans in NH District 1 have a candidate in the 2014 primary with a spouse of the same gender? Remember that Cong. Barney Frank and Cong. Gerry Studds had not taken a spouse of the same gender. Barney has since retired from politics and does have a same gender spouse. I am not a big tent guy, my country is going to ruin, and the republican party is just about dead. Move along, nothing here to see – or save. ******** Barack is crying again.

of the town.� Mrs. Ladd’s home on Court Street was appraised at $4,125 with a small amount of furniture and a Laconia Saving Bank account with $2,049.31. It was to be held in trust until $10,000 could be secured for a hospital. The Rhoda C Ladd Hospital Fund Committee was formed. Mrs. John F. Zebley, a summer resident at the “Nestledown� in the Weirs showed her inter-

est in a local hospital. When the first attempt to raise funds was made she contributed $100. In the latter part of 1895, when another effort was made to raise $1500 to establish a cottage hospital, Mrs. Zebley had little booklets manufactured. These booklets were two leaves of thick cardboard with twenty-five holes, each big enough for a silver dime, punched in each leaf. When filled, each booklet would have a value of $5. She then sent the fifty booklets to Woodbury L. Melcher of the Hospital Fund Committee to be distributed in Laconia while she sent fifty booklets to her friends in New York City. She also contributed twenty-five dollars. The local ladies auxiliary was also hard at work raising funds. They were encouraged by Mrs. Zebley’s assistance as they were getting discouraged in their own efforts in raising $1.500. The fundraising was still going on when incidents happening in and around Laconia showed the need for a hospital to finally be established. One item in the exhibit tells of an incident in September of 1897 at the railroad crossing on Messer Street. It was known as “Nichols Crossing.� Frank W. Clay and Minnie B.

the 7:45 Lake Shore train while out for an evening drive in Mr. Clay’s horse and carriage. According to the Laconia Democrat: “The terror maddened horse dashed off, tearing itself away from the harness and team as the latter was struck by the swiftly-moving locomotive, lifted high in the air and thrown a distance of fifty-feet. While the two occupants were hurled an even greater distance and lay insensible and bleeding.” The couple was transported to a house in Lakeport and two physicians,

Rhoda Ladd’s house on Court Street eventually became the Laconia Cottage Hospital. The building still stands today courtesy Photos and is occupied by Demo Shoe Repair. Dr. Harriman and Dr. Saltmarsh, were called for. As the Democrat noted in a subhead: “Victims Still Lying Unconscious, He Fatally Injured; She Barely has a chance for recovery.” Funds were finally raised on July 19, 1898, the Laconia Cottage Hospital, at the former home of Mrs. Rhoda C. Ladd, was finally dedicated and opened. It had a capacity of about six to eight patients at a time. The Cottage Hospital paid a rent of one-hun-


dred and fifty dollars a year. It was in 1905 when the present site of what is today, Lakes Region General Hospital was deeded to Laconia by Rev. Jeremiah S. Jewett who, in conjunction with the celebration of 50th year of Laconia’s incorporation as a town. Rev. Jewett sold the land to the town for $6,000, a fraction of its worth, and then donated $3,000 back to help with the building of the hospital. See hospital on 16

It is the site where LRGH courtesy Photo stands today. the rest of its history to present day. Two large displays give a detailed timeline of significant events in the hospital’s history and there are pictures and artifacts that will take you on a trip through time.

What’s Your Home’s Price Tag?

Wolfeboro 569-3128 / Center Harbor 253-9360 / Alton 875-3128

As the housing market bounces back in many parts of the country, you may be wondering: What’s my home worth now? There’s actually more than one answer, according to Scott Halliwell, a certified financial planner at USAA. He says your home has three potentially very different price tags based on its: Market value, Replacement value and Property tax value “Since different values can be used for different reasons, it’s important to understand when each applies,” Halliwell says, adding that some of these values may move in different directions at the same time. Market value -This is

the amount homes in your area are bought and sold for. It’s the measure most folks think of when they try to estimate their home’s worth or value. Determined in part by the going rate for similar houses in your city and neighborhood, market value is not based on what you paid for the home or how much it cost you to finish out the basement, reroof or remodel the kitchen. Many intangibles factor into this figure. Understanding the market value helps you calculate your total net worth and how much equity you have in your home. To calculate equity, subtract the amount you owe on your home from its market value: That’s about how

much profit you could receive from a sale. To strengthen your negotiating position with potential buyers, get an accurate idea of your home’s market value. A real estate agent can tell you the selling prices of similar homes in your area, helping you set reasonable expectations. Even if you’re planning to stay in your home, market value matters when taking out a home equity line of credit or home equity loan. For example, you may be planning a kitchen remodel and need $40,000, or you want to tap your equity to help pay your kids’ college tuition. Depending on your creditworthiness, many lenders will allow you to See price on 19

borrow up to 85 percent of your home’s value, less any mortgage or other equity loan on that property. Replacement value - If your home is completely destroyed because of, say, a fire or natural disaster, replacement cost is what it would take to remove debris and rebuild the structure from the ground up based on construction costs in your area. “Our philosophy, which is backed by years of experience, is that homes should be insured for 100 percent of the minimum estimated replacement cost,” says Cedric Matterson, a senior staff underwriter with USAA. Unless your insurance covers replacement costs, he says, you run the risk of coming up short if the costs to rebuild your home are more than your coverage will pay. As building costs go up, homeowners insurance can shield you from rising building costs. “It’s very possible to see local building costs increase while market values decline,” Halliwell says.

“This can lead to a situation where you actually need more dwelling coverage, despite seeing your home’s value drop.” Property tax value This is the number taxing authorities use to calculate your property tax bill. A given home may be taxed by more than one jurisdiction hospital and school districts, for example - and each may apply its own math. Typically, property tax values are meant to approximate the home’s market value, though sometimes there’s a big discrepancy between the two because of outdated assessments or mistakes by assessors. An accurate property tax valuation ensures your tax bill isn’t too low or too high and helps to ensure that your entire tax burden is understood. If the property tax value of your home exceeds the market value, consider contesting the value with your taxing authority. And be aware that certain actions on your part, such as remodeling, could cause a reassessment and result in a larger tax bill.

by countries in the European Union. In parallel to aid cutbacks, key political flashpoints such as a nuclear stand-off on the Korean peninsula and the percolating political instability in Egypt, and near-continuous crisis in the Congo, have been overshadowed by Syria’s civil war and the massive humanitarian disaster in the making.

Ask The Builder Choosing And Using The Right Shovel by Tim Carter

Syndicated Columnist

DEAR TIM: Last weekend, I had to dig a trench and shovel gravel. It was very hard work and I struggled the entire time. My wife said I was using the wrong shovel for the job. I had a simple squaretipped shovel my dad gave me years ago. The sides are bent up slightly. The gravel I was shoveling was slightly angular and the size of pieces of medium to large shrimp, if that helps you visualize what I was working with. I’ve got lots more digging to do and must discover an easier way. --Patrick S., Omaha, Neb. DEAR PATRICK: I’m really sorry you had such a difficult time. Digging dirt and moving gravel by hand is a tough job. To maximize progress and minimize work, you must use the right tools. I have no fewer than five different shovels that I use for working in dirt and moving gravel. I was really lucky many years ago to work with an older ditch digger. Yes, that was a craft 50 or more years ago, prior to the widespread use of mechanical digging machines you see today. He taught me a lot about choosing the right shovel for a job. These days, even homeowners have a variety of backhoes and excavators available to rent, especially tiny ones that are more like oversized children’s toys. You may discover this is the way to tackle future digging tasks. But back to the question at hand. As crazy as this sounds, let’s compare digging with eating. If you look at

These shovels are shaped differently for a reason. Each one does a particular job very well. my German shepherd’s mouth and teeth, you’ll discover that Mother Nature outfitted her with an assortment of pointed tools. I’m not an expert on canine dentistry, but it doesn’t take an Einstein to notice the giant pointed canine teeth are designed to puncture while nearby teeth are sharp and so they can cut. These teeth start to process the food, while teeth farther back are designed to crush and mash the food. You can see similar metal teeth on mechanized digging equipment. These are meant to make the initial cut into soil to loosen it so the surface area of the main body of the bucket experiences less friction. It’s all about friction when you dig anything. The less friction, the less work you have to do to move the shovel through the material. If you want to cut into soil or dig into a pile of medium or coarse gravel, I suggest you use a round point shovel. This tool is shaped much like a spoon you’d have in your kitchen drawer. The tip of the shovel has a point and is shaped very similar to a broad or wide heart you’d see on a valentine card. The tip of the shovel produces minimum friction as it starts to cut into the material.

You had difficulty because you were trying to use a shovel that did not have a tip on its end. The entire edge of the shovel was trying to move its way through the soil. Since you only have a fixed amount of force pushing the shovel, this force is spread out across the entire edge of the shovel. When you use a round-point shovel, the same force is concentrated on the tip. When shoveling gravel, I’ve discovered it’s best to slide a round point shovel into the pile at about a 30-degree angle. Don’t try to drive the shovel into the gravel straight on. That’s tough on you and the shovel. Remember, it’s all about friction. When I dig ditches in a sandy or clay soil, the two shovels I use are a duck-billed shovel and a flat-tipped garden spade. The duck-billed shovel is named because it closely resembles the bill on a duck. The blade of the shovel is nearly twice as long as the blade on a typical shovel. The blade is also much narrower. This shape means that there’s less metal in contact with the soil. Less metal means less friction. Think of it this way: imagine pushing a hypodermic needle into skin, and then imagine trying to puncSee builder on 27

Winter Home Safety: Quick Steps To Help Protect Your Family As cooler weather descends, homes heat up and so does the risk your family could experience a home fire or carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. According to the National Fire Protection Association, most home fires and CO poisonings occur in the winter. Besides heating appliances, seasonal activities such as increased

cooking, candle usage and holiday decorations all add to the risk. In fact, the U.S. Fire Administration reports that each year winter fires claim an average of 945 lives, injure 3,825 people and cause more than $1.7 billion in property loss. To help keep your home worry free from fire and CO this winter, the experts at

Kidde Fire Safety have developed a quick check list. Answer these questions to customize your winter home improvement projects with tasks that save money, reduce a common household annoyance and increase safety. One in four older homes needs to update fire safety equipment. How old are your alarms? •Replace smoke alarms every 10 years and CO alarms every five to 10 years, based on the alarm model. •Purchase an alarm with a 10-year sealed lithium battery, such as Kidde WorryFree smoke and CO alarms, to receive hassle-free protection for a decade -- no need to change a battery or hear a low-battery chirp. Available at retailers nationwide, with each alarm installed saving you $40 over its life in battery costs. Seventy-five percent of homeowners don’t know where to install smoke alarms. Do you have enough? •Fire experts recommend placing smoke alarms on every floor and inside/outside all bedrooms. Choose

If you need it, just call. . . . .

alarms with room-specific features, such as an LED light in the hallway, or a voice notification for the bedroom. •Place a CO alarm near sleeping areas and on each floor. Keep them 10 feet away from fuel-burning appliances. Do your alarms incorporate the newest features and technology? •A sealed-in 10-year lithium battery not only continuously powers the alarm, it’s also tamper-proof and can’t be removed. •A digital display shows the level of CO in the air and updates the reading every 15 seconds. •An intelligent multi-sensor responds faster to real fires and CO, while reducing nuisance alarms like those commonly caused by cooking. •An end-of-life appliance warning lets you know when to replace your alarms. Do you need other safety products? •Fire extinguisher - place one within reach in rooms where fires often begin: kitchen, garage, bedroom,

living area •Escape ladder - place in second- and third-floor rooms as an alternative escape route Have you developed a family escape plan? •Create a plan and practice regularly. Know two ways out of every room and who will assist children and loved ones with mobility/ health issues. Do your children know their address and how to dial 911? • Post your home address and emergency phone numbers on the refrigerator. Are your appliances and chimney winter-ready? •Have a professional inspect fuel-burning appliances to ensure they function properly and that they vent outside. •Have a professional clean or inspect fireplaces annually. Birds and small animals can cause leaves to build up on top of the chimney, preventing carbon monoxide from venting properly. •Create a 3-foot clutter free zone around fireplaces, space heaters or wood stoves.

Why Bother Migrating?

by Steve White Contributing Writer

weather conditions periodically exist where very strong, turbulent winds and rain create the “fallout.� This naturally happens when a virulent cold front crosses the Texas coast and moves into the Gulf of Mexico during the daylight hours. The rain and wind practically stops the migrating birds, forcing them to use up most of their energy reserves. Thousands of exhausted migrating birds are forced to seek any shelter and available food when they finally reach the coastline. Without adequate, natural habitats along this important coast, tens of

thousands of birds would perish each migration. Enjoy your birds! Wild Bird Depot is located on Rt 11 in Gilford, NH. Steve is a contributing author in major publications, a guest lecturer at major conventions in Atlanta and St. Louis as well as the host of WEZS 1350AM radio show “Bird Calls� with Lakes Region Newsday @ 8:30AM. Wild Bird Depot has donated over $5,000 to local rehabilitators and local nature centers since 1996. Be sure to check out our blog “Bird Droppings� via our website www. Like us on Facebook for great contests and prizes.

Why do birds migrate? Wouldn’t it be simpler and safer for wild birds to stay in the same regions they nest in rather than risk flying thousands of miles twice each year? In truth, if birds did not migrate their lives would be even more difficult to survive than making their vast journeys. If no birds migrated, natural food sources in their breeding areas would be depleted very quickly and many baby chicks would starve. Competition for nesting sites would, ultimately, be extremely fierce and the population of preda& RESIDENTIAL MAINTENANCE Highest Quality and Truly Reliable Service CONTRACTS tors would increaseACCEPTING due to COMMERCIAL Tree Brush Removal • Skid Steer Services "FSBUJPO0WFSTFFEJOHt'VMM4FSWJDF*OTUBMMBUJPO the higher concentration • Patios • Lawn Care • Spring Clean-ups of breeding birds andMulch the Delivered &YDBWBUJPOt*SSJHBUJPOt)ZESPTFFEJOH Quality & Reliability • Fully Insured • Free Estimates easy meals of the nestlings.

ture your skin with a flat screwdriver instead of a needle. You’d need much more force when using the screwdriver. A small, flat garden spade is a fantastic tool to trim the sides of a trench if you want to create smooth side walls and a flat trench bottom. These spades shave moist clay

soils like a hot knife cuts into butter. The square-point shovel you were using is best suited to shovel dry or moist sand or any other powdered product. It’s also great for shoveling fluffed mulch. However, if you try to push this shovel straight into a semicompacted pile of mulch, you’ll discover you don’t

get very far. Do the same thing with a round-point shovel and it bites right into the mulch. Clean shovels work best. Don’t try to dig with hardened clay on the shovel surface. This just creates more friction. Always clean shovels after you’re finished with them. Oil the metal surface to prevent rust.

You’ll discover that, most of the time, it’s easier to dig moist soil instead of dry. If you’re experiencing a drought, try to water the area you plan to dig with a soaker hose. Want free home-improvement information? Go to and sign up for Tim’s free

1.8 percent. When Hong Kong was a British colony, it had no minimum wage law. In 1991 its unemployment rate was under 2 percent. As for being “compassionate� toward “the poor,� this assumes that there is some enduring class of Americans who are poor in some meaningful sense, and that there is something compassionate about reducing their chances of getting a job. Most Americans living below the government-set poverty line have a washer and/or a dryer, as well as a computer. More than 80 percent have air conditioning. More than 80 percent also have both a landline and a cell phone. Nearly all have television and a refrigerator. Most Americans living below the official poverty line also own a motor vehicle and have more living space than the average European -- not Europeans in poverty, the average European. Why then are they called “poor�? Because govern-

ment bureaucrats create the official definition of poverty, and they do so in ways that provide a political rationale for the welfare state -- and, not incidentally, for the bureaucrats’ own jobs. Most people in the lower income brackets are not an enduring class. Most working people in the bottom 20 percent in income at a given time do not stay there over time. More of them end up in the top 20 percent than remain behind in the bottom 20 percent. There is nothing mysterious about the fact that most people start off in entry level jobs that pay much less than they will earn after they get some work experience. But, when minimum wage levels are set without regard to their initial productivity, young people are disproportionately unemployed -- priced out of jobs. In European welfare states where minimum wages, and mandated job benefits to be paid for by employers, are more generous than in the United States, unemployment rates for younger

workers are often 20 percent or higher, even when there is no recession. Unemployed young people lose not only the pay they could have earned but, at least equally important, the work experience that would enable them to earn higher rates of pay later on. Minorities, like young people, can also be priced out of jobs. In the United States, the last year in which the black unemployment rate was lower than the white unemployment rate -- 1930 -- was also the last year when there was no federal minimum wage law. Inflation in the 1940s raised the pay of even unskilled workers above the minimum wage set in 1938. Economically, it was the same as if there were no minimum wage law by the late 1940s. In 1948 the unemployment rate of black 16-yearold and 17-year-old males was 9.4 percent. This was a fraction of what it would become in even the most prosperous years from 1958 on, as the minimum wage was raised repeatedly to keep up with inflation. Some “compassion� for “the poor�!

We switched back and forth up the mountain to Zeta Pass and we stayed on the Carter Dome Trail bypassing Mount Hight since there would be no views from its summit because we were now in the clouds. The temperature drops a few degrees and we put on some more clothes. We kept moving and promised ourselves a good long lunch on top of Carter Dome.

THE WEIRS TIMES & THE COCHECO TIMES, Thursday, September 26, 2013

We walked past the spinning gondola and headed down the Polecat Trail. The Polecat Trail is 2.75 miles long and is the longest summit to base novice ski trail in New Hampshire. Polecat’s gentle grade and good footing make it a nice hiking trail too. Clouds blanketed Mount Washington and I hope when we do the rest of the Carters we will see grand views. After being on the trail nearly 8.5 hours, the time it takes to play 36 holes of golf, we’d traveled over three 4,000 footers! Of the Yours Truly and the Nineteen Mile Brook are looking good! 48, Sarah has 23, Sharon The Nineteen Mile Brook Trail isn’t nineteen miles. The 21 and Nancy now has 7! Have fun. trail begins on Route 16 and ends in 3.8 miles at the Carter

From the summit of Carter Dome, Sharon leads the way down the Carter-Moriah Trail to Carter Notch. patenaude from 32

with a view of the valley below, the roofs of the hut buildings and the Carter ponds. Sarah doesn’t like heights and didn’t enjoy the lookout ledge. She warned us not to fall off. We walked around the pretty pond and up to the trail intersection. We agreed to stick to our plan and continue up the Wildcat Ridge; five more miles in the clouds. The summit of Wildcat A is just 7/10th of a mile nearly straight up from the floor of the notch. Nancy and I hiked ahead and near the top we met a couple that asked me if they were near the top yet. I told them they had already been over it. They didn’t know whether to believe me. The true summit is near the look out ledge and isn’t marked by a sign. They followed us and I pointed out the short herd path to the high point. They marched over and touched it and then took off again. The Wildcat Ridge is made up of five peaks; A and D Peaks are included on the 4,000 footer list. The ridge is rugged and there are a lot of steep ups and downs and little bumps that confuse and

might cause a hiker to loose count. Especially in the dense clouds it is understandable how hikers could to march right over the top of A peak and not know it. In the middle of the ridge we passed by six north bound AT thru hikers. They were spread out and

hiking hard to try to make it to Kathadin before it gets too cold. On top of D Peak we stand on the observation tower and the only thing we can see are the red-orange berries on the Mountain Ash trees. We can hear the whirl of Wildcats gondola just below. At the top of the ski resort we were just below the clouds! To the south it was sunny and we can see all the way to Mount Chocorua and a little beyond. I noticed that the old tram building is missing; it was taken down this spring.

Onuoha also operated a bizarro website titled, which featured â&#x20AC;&#x153;end of the worldâ&#x20AC;? essays. He was the same TSA agent who made headlines earlier this summer after harassing a 15year-old girl at LAX over her website: modest apparel.

about this, Mr. McWilliams stated the grant “went out to four other bidders” but was awarded to Mr. Whitman. How is this even possible? The person PAID to write the grant, gets awarded with the actual grant? This makes for very murky waters, folks.

in Alton, reviewing the existing land use regulations to “identify any barriers to the creation of Workforce Housing” and then drafting regulatory language that would provide for the development of Workforce Housing in Alton – I assume to be voted on in March 2014.
