LACONIA — A meeting of the Belknap County Convention's Executive Committee scheduled for Tuesday afternoon was cancelled due to lack of a quorum.
Committee Chairman Frank Tilton (R-Laconia) and members Don Flanders (R-Laconia) and Robert Greemore (R-Meredith) were the only members of the seven-member committee present. Absent were Guy Comtois (R-Barnstead), Herb Vadney (R-Meredith), Jane Cormier (R-Alton), and Colette Worsman (R-Meredith).
Tilton said that the meeting had originally been scheduled to take up a request from the Belknap County Commissioners for a $10,500 budget transfer to the corrections department but the request had been withdrawn by the commissioners, who wrote a letter to the committee in which it said a decision had been made to use the county's contingency account to make up the shortfall.
The committee took no action on the request at its October 22 meeting.

GILFORD — A quick-thinking police officer was able push a burning car away from a fuel pump at the Gilford Mobil Mart Monday morning.
Police and fire fighters were called to the store at 8:07 a.m. for a reported car fire. The first person to arrive was Officer Kevin Baron, who saw a car at the gas pumps smoking with flames coming from the underside.
He used the push bar on his cruiser to push the smoking car into a nearby parking lot. He and Officer Curtis Mailloux engaged the fire extinguishers from their cruisers but were unable to put out the fire.
Deputy Fire Chief Brad Ober said fire crews had to pry open the hood of the car to extinguish the blaze. He said police were able to push the car from under the gas station canopy and that action prevented the fire suppression system from deploying.
Ober said heat triggers the suppression system and the fire hadn't gotten that hot yet. He also said it's quite messy when one of those systems deploys.
The car was a total loss but no one was injured.
