Tilton officers to ‘ticket’ children with vouchers for free ice cream cones

TILTON — Tilton. Police officers are on a very serious mission this summer and will be handing out tickets left and right.
Effective next week, officers will have a quota for tickets, at least one per shift. They are going to be profiling, too. They will target a specific group, with the express purpose of writing as many tickets as possible.
The Tilton Police Union – NEPBA Local 29, has partnered with the Tilton Dairy Queen in targeting healthy safe children this summer. It is called Project Safety Cone.
Officers are targeting kids 12 and under. When on patrol if an officer spots a child demonstrating proper safety such as; wearing their bicycle helmets while riding, wearing protectivegear when skateboarding or inline skating or even playing outside in a safe place, that suspect will be stopped and issued a ticket.
And what is that ticket good for? One free ice cream cone from the Tilton Dairy Queen.
Police expressed a special thank you to The Dion family for their support in the community.
Contact Corporal Nate Buffington or Corporal Steve Henry with questions or comments at 286-8207.

Exploring the Bible class at Gilford Methodist Church

GILFORD — The First United Methodist Church located at 18 Wesley Way in Gilford is offering an educational Bible Study from Exploring the Bible: The Dickinson Series – What is the Bible? on Tuesday May 12 at either 2 p.m. or 7 p.m.

This first course of Exploring the Bible: The Dickinson Series gives students a broad overview of the entire Bible, including chapters on how to select a Bible suitable for each persons individual needs, how the Bible is organized, how the collection of books that comprise the Bible were chosen, different ways that people approach the text, and what archaeology has to tell us about the text and its stories.

Taught by Reverend Tom Getchell-Lacey, this six-week course in basic biblical literacy assumes no prior knowledge of the Bible and is not biased toward any particular Christian tradition. In fact, it is being successfully used in both Protestant and Catholic churches, in ecumenical groups, interfaith groups, and in groups that mix church folks, agnostics, and atheists.

Class will be held on Tuesday's for six consecutive weeks. For more information or to sign up call 524-3289 or e-mail the church office at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to sign up.
