Kathleen Connor (10-7) 335Tortuga Trail Trot on Nov. 1 is open to all ages and abilities

To the Daily Sun,

On Nov. 1, at 10 a.m., central New Hampshire will have the first running (or walking) of the Tortuga Trail Trot. The event will be on wooded trails at the Holderness School, have hand-crafted awards, music, food, costumes (optional and fun) with people from the local community, and beyond. This will be a meaningful day, for people of all ages and skills, with all profits going to the Betty J. Borry Breast Cancer Retreats. None of it however would be possible without the support of many generous people and businesses.

So please share in a shout-out of appreciation to the sponsors. At the four-ribbon level, Construx Inc., and the Holderness School; at the two-ribbon level, Speare Memorial Hospital, Concord Imaging Center, New Hampshire Electric Co-op, Sistas With Blistas, Cottage Bay Designs, Barn Works, and Community Clay Center; and at the one-ribbon level, Sharon Thorne Allstate Insurance, Bank of New Hampshire, Granite State Glass, and Lexian Management Associates. In addition to all of these folks, contributions were made by NAPA, Patty Stewart and Associates, Shokal Builders, Venture Printing, and several individuals.

The list of supporters does not end there, and at the risk of giving away surprises, we must share thanks to the yummy and satisfying contributions the trotters will enjoy at the event – Hannaford's, Newfound Grocery, Purple Pit, Café Monte Alto, Sweet Mountain Living, Dunkin Donuts, and Popcorn Passion. Trotters will also appreciate a multitude of prizes from local and regional businesses.

You can learn more about the details and sign up on line by checking out this link, http://www.bjbbreastcancerretreats.org/content/tortugatrail-trot-11115

If you sign up before Oct. 16 you will receive a Tortuga Trail Trot Logo T-shirt and a discounted registration fee. Please join us! Share in the generosity of our sponsors, have healthy fun, and know that your participation will be making a difference in the lives of women moving from surviving to thriving with breast cancer.

BJB Director of the Tortuga Trail Trot

Image in Kelly Ayotte’s ne-ewsletter implies pro-choice association

To the Daily Sun,

There never has been any question of Jeanne Shaheen's position on abortion. She is pro-abortion. Same with her buddy Hillary Clinton.

Gee, if Jeanne's daughter runs for governor, she could be running against Chris Sununu, son of John H. He says he is pro-choice. If Jeb! is the Republican nominee, he could be up against another abortion queen, Hillary.

And who is in a picture with Jeanne Shaheen congratulating New Hampshire's 2015 Angels in Adoption honorees, well it is Kelly Ayotte, reaching across the table of make-believe in an effort by Jeanne to prove she cares about the pre-born and recently born babies.
BTW, that picture is from Sen. Ayotte's E-newsletter of Oct. 7.
