We will gather & pray for Laconia on Saturday morning at Rotary Park

To The Daily Sun,

A group of concerned neighbors are getting together at the gazebo located in the park by Belknap Mill at 9 a.m. this Saturday, Nov 1. We will supply coffee & donuts .

We would like to gather & pray for Laconia and surrounding communities in the light of the recent overdoses and drug use locally. This is a group gathering to show love & support to the community as well as talk about ways to reach out to our neighbors in the future. All are welcome.

Social Security & Medicare under attack by the Republican Party

To The Daily Sun,

What do Scott Brown and Frank Guinta have in common?

Scott Brown and Frank Guinta are Republican candidates that have taken large donations from people who do not live in New Hampshire. These wealthy people are trying to buy our voice in Washington. What is good for them is not necessarily good for us. Do you believe that Scott Brown and Frank Guinta will vote against the people who are making the large donations to their campaigns?

If you are a veteran, a senior citizen, a student in college or a former student trying to pay back college loans, you know that Jeanne Shaheen and Carol Shea-Porter have been working for you. They are working for the people of New Hampshire.

Programs like Social Security and Medicare are under attack by the leadership of the Republican Party. We know that Jeanne Shaheen and Carol Shea-Porter have worked to protect these programs. We know that they have tried to help veterans and students. We need to support Senator Jeanne Shaheen and Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter with our vote on Tuesday, Nov. 4.

4 years & counting; our opposition to Northern Pass will not waver

To The Daily Sun,

On Sunday, Oct. 26, no fewer than 70 grass roots members opposed to the Northern Pass gathered in Franco for a celebration dinner marking four years strong in fighting the Northern Pass as it is proposed. Guest speakers talked about rights-of-way and how Vermont, Maine and New York are burying HVDC lines. PSNH is pushing forward with this project, and as long as they do the opposition will be there for however long it takes. We will not stop.

Hydro Quebec said they would not build this line if the people of New Hampshire didn't want it. Why is it taking so long for the New Hampshire legislators to follow suit with the other three states that are burying these lines? It has been four years of committees, studies, meetings, disappointments. When will the state House act?

Remember this Northern Pass HVDC line is a merchant-funded project not needed for system reliability. It will put millions upon millions of dollars in the pockets on PSNH and North East Utilities' stockholders. It is only sensible to bury he line under Interstate 93 and other state-owned rights-of-way. Think of that revenue instead of casinos and gambling.

Thank you allfor the tremendous Tobin/Hicks family benefit

To The Daily Sun,

Unbelievable!! Thank you tremendously from the Tobin/Hicks family benefit.

The gift items for auction, donations and an abundance of food was amazing and so much appreciated. The community spirit of Sanbornton and surrounding towns, friends and family, businesses and organizations were especially overwhelming. We may live in a small community but the love, gifts and caring are worldly. We will always be grateful as these memories will brighten the tough days ahead.

A special thank you to the Van Tassel, Fournier, Mcgirr and Ober families who organized and dedicated many hours of work and love to make this an unforgettable event.

We have a clear moral choice when we vote — for Shea-Porter

To The Daily Sun,

Former Congressman Frank Guinta says he's a proud Catholic living in a Christian nation. Yet, Mr. Guinta endorses the Republican-Ryan budget that he helped write in committee and voted for four times. Mr. Guinta should heed what Catholic faith leaders said about the Ryan budget.

On April 13, 2012, 60 Catholic faith leaders released a statement calling Ryan's budget "morally indefensible," saying it "betrays Catholic principles of solidarity, just taxation and a commitment to the common good. A budget that turns its back on the hungry, the elderly and the sick while giving more tax breaks to the wealthiest few can't be justified in Christian terms."

John Gehring, Catholic outreach coordinator at Faith in Public Life, commented on their statement: "This budget turns centuries of Catholic social teaching on its head. These Catholic leaders and many Catholics in the pews are tired of faith being misused to bless an immoral agenda."

We have a clear moral choice when we vote on Nov. 4. Whatever your religious practice or political affiliation, there is wisdom in these faith leaders' verdict on the Ryan budget that Mr. Guinta endorses.

The Rev. Susan (Andy) Jepson
