Please respect my property & I will continue to let you use it

To The Daily Sun,

I went for a walk this morning on the main corridor snowmobile trail that runs through my property on Livingston Road in Meredith. I was appalled to see that someone had blatantly and deliberately run down the stakes that were running the length of the field. I believe that this occurred over this past weekend. Stakes were broken and strewn across the trail. The driver of the snowmobile even zigzagged in order to catch some posts on the other side of the trail. This was no accidental incident.

Post and signs cost money. Shame on you, whoever you are. It is people like you who ruin things for everyone else. It is people like you who cause people to post their property. What pleasure do you get out of damaging someone else's property? If you choose to disrespect the privilege of crossing my land, stay off it.

I have owned this property since 1973 and the snowmobile club has had permission to run their main corridor trail through my property ever since I can remember. We have had some minor problems over the years with people throwing out trash. People have also traveled in the wee hours of the morning and awoken me because a portion of the trail is only a few 'feet" from the corner of my house. People have gone through my flower beds and broken off shrubbery because they didn't stay on the trail, accidental or otherwise. I have never felt the need to complain before now.

Stakes were put up the length of the field and across my lawn to keep the snowmobiles on the "trail" and prevent damage to my property.

Many people who have used this property for snowmobile, skiing, hiking, snowshoeing, walking their dogs, etc., have thanked me for the privilege of crossing my land. I am happy to have them use and enjoy the land that I love. Please respect me and my property and I will continue to allow you to use it.

Fentanyl seller made the choice & now he needs to pay the price

To The Daily Sun,

I applaud judge James O'Neill's sentence in (the case of Brian Watson, sentenced Tuesday for selling the drug fentanyl to a man who later died from an overdose). As the mother of Ray Delucca who overdosed in 2007, I don't understand why selling drugs is an okay thing to do in order for a person to pay his bills. Just the possibility of someone losing their life should be a deterrent to taking this action.

The person who sold my son the drugs that killed him was supposedly doing it for this same reason. Yes, my son made the decision to take those drugs and he paid the ultimate price for that. The seller made the choice to sell them and he did it fully knowing the possible consequences (who doesn't?) so he needs to pay the price for his actions.

Thank you Judge O'Neill for making this point with your sentence.

Gail Delucca
