They sacrificed their lives so a man can use the ladies room

To The Daily Sun,

President Kennedy put a man on the moon. President Obama put a man in the ladies room, and our governor, Maggie Hassan, supports this crazy idea.

And there are those out there that want her to be our next U.S. senator.

I attended Memorial Day services in Meredith today and when I returned home all I could think of was my fellow veterans who never came home while protecting our freedom. I don't know now, or if I ever will believe they made these sacrifices so some man can go into the ladies room with one of our young daughters.

East Alton General Store is not closing; former owner is back

To The Daily Sun,

Thank you for printing our letter in your weekend edition. We did not realize until reading it in your paper, that those who do not know why we are having the customer appreciation event to say farewell may not understand the letter. We should have mentioned that the reason for the title "out with the new...in with the old" is to signify that the former owners of the store are taking it back over.

We have been running the store for the past 13 months, but the property is up for sale and our lease expires on June 14. So the store itself is not closing due to lack of business. It actually has been increasing in business since we took over, but it is going back to what it once was.

Our apologies that the letter did not mention this. We are so used to our customer base here knowing the reason behind our farewell, that it took an outsider coming in to wish us well after reading the article for us to realize that we should have communicated the story more clearly.

Douglas Vincent
