Lions club holding electronic waste collection day Saturday

GILFORD — Got an old computer collecting dust in your closet, or a broken refrigerator sitting on the back porch? What do you do with such items when you replace them? Everything from laptops, phones and radios to home appliances or TV's cost a fortune to haul away.

Turn all that junk over to the Laconia-Gilford Lions Club during their Electronic Waste Collection Day on Saturday, April 18 in the Lowe's parking lot in Gilford from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. For a small disposal fee, not only will we take your old electronic items off your hands, we will recycle them. The disposal charge is almost always less than the prices at local transfer stations. Cash or checks will be accepted but not debit or credit cards.

In addition, we will also take microwaves, air conditioners, refrigerators, freezers, water heaters, washing machines, dryers, gas or electric stoves, dishwashers, dumb terminals, and TVs. Anything with a cord not listed will also be accepted.

You cannot drop off: oils, paints, thinners, batteries, tires, items containing mercury such as fluorescent and CFL light bulbs or thermometers, capacitors, ballasts, or any other hazardous waste.

Disposal fees frange from $1 to $30 per item depending on size (almost always less than the cost at local transfer stations).

Pitch Black Ribbons playing at Pitman’s on Friday

LACONIA — The Pitch Black Ribbons perform at Pitman's Freight Room in Laconia on Friday, April 24 at 8 p.m.

Clint and Cody are brothers and with their new acoustic project, the Pitch Black Ribbons, they return to the roots of their knowledge. A style that draws from all genres epitomizes the philosophy that there are two kinds of music in this world: the good, and the rest. People mistake the band as country all too often, thanks to the visual cue of the cowboy hats, but the brothers revel in such miscategorizations that illuminate more about the mentality of the surrounding world than any individual within it. Pitch Black Ribbons music encompasses the varieties of human experience, from love to revelry, from anger to happiness.

Catered dinner buffet available before the show. For more information or to make dinner reservations call 527-0043 or visit www.pitmansfreightroom.com.

Over 90% of people use the internet to locate businesses, but fewer than half of local businesses have complete or accurate information listed with Google. This workshop gives a business control of their information and helps them be found more easily."

Gilford police to generate firearms storage awareness by providing gun safety kits to residents

GILFORD — The Gilford Police Department (GPD) today announces its involvement in the Own It? Respect It. Secure It. (ORS) Initiative to help raise the public's consciousness on the issue of firearm safety and responsibility through the core message: "Store Your Firearms Responsibly."

To generate awareness around this important message, GPD will be providing free gun safety kits to Gilford residents while supplies last (a maximum of two safety kits per household will be allowed). Kits include a cable-style gun-locking device with accompanying brochure that discusses safe handling and storage in order to help deter access by unauthorized individuals, including at-risk persons. Residents may stop by the police department in order to retrieve kits from police Dispatch personnel.

"Through the ORS Initiative, we want to reach as many people as possible with this message to encourage safe and responsible firearm storage," said GPD Chief of Police Anthony Bean Burpee. Bean Burpee continued by saying, "Our goal is to make proper firearm storage as second nature as keeping medicine in child-resistant containers. With the ORS Initiative, we can have a positive impact in helping to prevent accidents and unauthorized use of firearms."
