Gilford community clearly cares about children and shows it

To The Daily Sun,
It is clear that community members in Gilford care about children. Our schools, Gilford Got Lunch!, community recreational leagues, programs offered at the Library and Gunstock, and the Community Center are all a testament to how Gilford puts kids and families first.
Angel Tree is another example of how Gilford supports its children. For about two decades, Angel Tree is a holiday program where many people and organizations support children of families in need in the Gilford School District. The District, community members and local organizations solicit gifts for children in need, and if they have them, their younger siblings. Children request two types of gifts: Items that they need (such as winter clothes), and items that they want for fun. People can go into each of the three schools in Gilford to choose a child to purchase gifts for.
These people buy the items but do not know the name of the child. After the items are purchased, they are brought the SAU, bagged, and given to the children. Some people donated cash to purchase last-minute items, wrapping paper, and gift bags. Several school staff and community members, the Gilford Fire and Police departments, individual students, student organizations, and local businesses purchased gifts and donated money for this important cause. Early Act, a student organization at the elementary school, ask for and receive donations and prepare stockings for each child. A total of 20 families with 48 children were supported by Angel Tree.
At Christmastime, it is great to be a part of a community that cares and does so much for its children and families.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Obama gave Israel a knife in the back just before Christmas

To The Daily Sun,
Just before Christmas, Obama gave the gift that keeps on giving to Israel, a knife in the back. Wasn’t that so Christian of him? Hope it’s fully appreciated by liberal American Jews who still believe Obama isn’t at the very least a Muslim supporter. Then both he and wife Michelle went before interviews to wring their hands with the poor-them tales. Yes, the poor deprived couple will now have to spend their own money on elaborate vacations and travel. Oh the horror!
And wifey’s dream of going into a Target store is forever to be just a dream, poor dear. The only compensation is the millions they acquired while he was in office, lifetime benefits and pension, Secret Service protection for all the family, health care, and all those speaking engagements just for spending change. Poor, poor them. Kind of chokes you up, doesn’t it?
Now for the chronically outraged who are aghast that President-elect Trump has selected people for his cabinet who have actually achieved success outside of being someone’s political stooge and know how to manage business without kissing the feet of corrupt special interests with hands perpetually in taxpayers’ pockets, get over yourselves. That’s right, free market capitalism is making a comeback. The system that created more industry, jobs and raised more people out of abject poverty all over the world then any other system created is back on the field ready to kick off on Jan. 20, Hoorah!
George Soros is calling on liberals to “take back the power.” Just what he has in mind for the gullible to do while he sits comfortably in his penthouse I don’t know, but remember he is a convicted/wanted criminal last I knew so be careful, it could be your neck on the line, not his.
Don’t know, but hope some of the more radical leftist college professors are starting to worry. After all, they could be in the same kind of leaky boat as the sanctuary cities folks. It will be fun to watch both those groups squirm. And as was demonstrated this fall, the lamestream media ain’t what it use to be, what with the personal electronic devices recording and exposing them. Truth and opposing views can’t be beaten down and silenced by the politically correct Nazis.
Colleges with their outrageous tuition and useless degrees are already under fire and that’s only going to grow, so the wack job professors will be the first to feel the pressure. And how about the Democratic Party for learning a lesson? Nope. In congress they again elect Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to lead. Talk about more of the same.
Anyway, it all bodes well for Trump and conservatives for the next four to eight years, though we will have to listen to a lot of winning and crying. Ah, a small price to pay for sanity.
