LACONIA — Irwin Automotive Group announced today that free car seat inspections and education will be available to the community today from 12:30-2:30 p.m. at Irwin Automotive Group, 59 Bisson Avenue, Laconia. The event is part of "Child Passenger Safety Week" and will include car seat inspections by Carolyn Muller of LRGHealthcare who is a Certified Child Passenger Safety technician. Muller will be on hand to teach parents and caregivers how to choose the right car seats for their children and how to install them correctly.
"There's always danger on the road, every time you leave your home," said Muller "The best way to protect your child is to have him or her in the right seat for the child's age and size and to use that seat correctly. Even if you think you've got it right, make an appointment during Child Passenger Safety Week to know for sure. All parents want their kids to be safe, and this event will give them that peace of mind."

LACONIA — The Jazz Bar will present Ian Ethan and the Open Land Trio Thursday, September 19 at 7 p.m.
Acoustic double-neck guitarist Ian Ethan Case began a journey into truly uncharted territory when he picked up a seldom-seen 18-string instrument in 2005, two years after leaving the Berklee College of Music.
While most who venture to play the instrument are either baffled by or unaware of the possibilities that it offers (its history seems to peg it as more of a stage prop than a valid musical tool), for him it is simply "the most effective and intuitive means I've found to translate into sound the things I'm hearing in my head."
Case's music is featured on radio and TV stations throughout the country. Emmy-Winning producer/composer Peter Wilder says: "Ian Ethan represents something so new in musical approach, that the result is near impossible to pigeon hole into a 'sounds like' statement. It has been my personal privilege to observe his unwavering and deep exploration of this new technique and on a relatively rare instrument. The original music of Ian Ethan is not to be missed."
Ian will perform with saxophonist Don Davis and drummer Karl Grohmann. NH-based singer/songwriter Audrey Drake will open the show.
There is a $10 cover charge. Full bar, dinner, coffee, and desserts are available.
The Jazz Bar is located at the Tower Hill Entertainment Complex at 290 Lakeside Ave at Weirs Beach. Table reservations can be made by calling (603) 366-9100.
