Thanks to local authorities, I have trailer stolen in 2012 back

To The Daily Sun,

In 2012 my Yacht Club snowmobile trailer was stolen out of my driveway. It had been full of things I was getting rid of and the sign read "free stuff." The sign also read, "Not including trailer." However, a thief in the night, backed into my driveway, hooked onto my trailer and away they went.

In January 2016 my trailer was spotted in Laconia by an off-duty Gilmanton police officer. I had modified it so it was easily identifiable if someone knew what to look for. The trailer had been sold twice after it was taken from me. The man who had the trailer had no idea it had been stolen.

I would just like to say thank you to the Gilmanton Police Department, Trooper Ed Shannon of State Police and also to the Belknap County Attorney's office. I greatly appreciate your time in investigating, recovering and returning my snowmobile trailer to its rightful owner.

This week the court decided in my favor and I now have my trailer back.

If elected I'll continue to move Sanbornton forward in a positive manner

To The Daily Sun,

For those of you who don't know me, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Katy (Wells) North and I am running for a three-year term for the Sanbornton Board of Selectmen. I was appointed to the vacant selectmen seat in September 2016.

For the past five months I have worked diligently for the best interest of the taxpayers of Sanbornton. In my five month time as a selectmen, I have been a team player on the current board and we have made significant accomplishments, including stabilizing the tax rate. I have been a Sanbornton resident for over 21 years and for the last 20 years I have held various town positions both elected and appointed. I have applied these years of experience to my last five months serving as selectman and look forward to continuing this service.

If elected as selectman, I look forward to addressing the building space needs of the town, assisting in the process of evaluating our town roads and looking at long-term plans for keeping our infrastructure maintained. I ask for your support to be elected as selectman on March 14. I will continue to move Sanbornton forward in a positive and productive manner for the betterment of the town and benefit all citizens. I appreciate your consideration.

Katy (Wells) North
