I'd hope N.H. college kids in other states would want to vote here

To The Daily Sun,

After this past election there is just so much to write about and respond to I am being kept very busy, thanks to progressives. A short letter caught my eye here on Saturday. Charles Wibel thinks Alen Vervaeke is in need of an intervention because he has become "unhinged" by the election results. My comment: Oh, you noticed that too, Charles?
Scott Cracraft writes in defense of out-of-state collage students voting in our elections, to which I have an alternate view. To me I would hope that the N.H. kids that go off to school in say USC, Texas Tech, West Virginia or some other state would get absentee ballots from N.H., where they have their roots and interests, not the state where they are just going to school and likely have no long term commitment to. That should be the same for our out-of-state students here in N.H. What with early voting and absentee ballots so easy to get, why not? It would eliminate much of the concerns over voter fraud. Then all to worry about is the influx of campaigner workers that come in for a few weeks then show up at our poles to vote and go home the next day. Yes it does happen sometimes and as the Democrats like to say, "Every vote counts", just not twice. One other thing about elections I think it is overdue that the federal government issues national identity cards, just like most other country's do. It would go a long way to quell any concerns about illegal voting. Maybe President Trump can find a few moments to fit it in though he has tons of work to do repairing all the damage Obama has done to the U.S.
Keep the issues coming liberals, I have lots of time on my hands.

180 guests attended Christian Academy's 2016 Holiday Gala

To The Daily Sun,

By all accounts, Laconia Christian Academy's 2016 Holiday Gala at Church Landing in Meredith was an incredible
success. With nearly 180 guests in attendance, the event produced the second highest revenue in its 12-year history. After the silent auction, guests enjoyed a delicious dinner catered by The Common Man Restaurants and participated in the highlight of the night—the live auction. Ninety-six local businesses contributed items to the auctions, allowing us to generate just over $30,000 for the tuition grant fund. Another $26,000 was raised through ticket sales, underwriting, donations, and pledges.

LCA would like to thank the many friends and families of LCA who contributed items to the auctions and who donated to the Annual Fund. Additionally, the families of LCA would like to thank the following individuals and businesses
