Letter Submission

To submit a letter to the editor, please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Letters must contain the author's name, hometown (state as well, if not in New Hampshire) and phone number, but the number will not be published. We do not run anonymous letters. Local issues get priority, as do local writers. We encourage writers to keep letters to no more than 400 words, but will accept longer letters to be run on a space-available basis. Editors reserve the right to edit letters for spelling, grammar, punctuation, excessive length and unsuitable content.


We mahy not have the power to stop it but we won't approve it either

To The Daily Sun,

Dear Jean:

I can't tell you how delighted I was to read your letter in The Laconia Daily Sun today. Information we have provided to the press in seeking attention and support has had to be mostly factual and informative. Your letter had personal warmth and experience of heritage in your hometown. Your background shows a love for culture and architectural design. I am so pleased with your attachment to Laconia.

Now you are living in a community that has been totally restored as the very important knitting industry and is a famed historical site to make trips to visit. My Uncle Lowell of our Lowell family worked in the Lowell Mills. He lived in Methuen and I lived with them for a year. Fond memories of that area too.

We will not approve the demolition even though we have not power to stop it. We will conduct a public hearing Wednesday, January 22 at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, Laconia. We may go for an injunction. And we will continue to picket Dunkin' Donuts (by Hathaway House) on Union Avenue each weekend.
