Help ensure quality education for all Gilford students on March 8

To The Daily Sun,

As a candidate for the Gilford School Board, I am running to retain the seat I have held for the past two years. During that time I have come to know how, working together, a team of an experienced school board, a superintendent who sets high standards and highly qualified professional teachers and administrators have created a 21st Century educational system second to none. I wish to remain part of this team to help ensure that now and into the future Gilford students will benefit from what has and will continue to be accomplished.

I believe that my Masters degree in Education along with my background as a teacher, former three-term member of the Laconia School Board and my last two years' experience in Gilford provide the me with the knowledge and insight to be a productive member of the Gilford School Board. If elected I will continue to work for what I believe to be best for our students and community.
I ask for your vote on March 8 to help ensure quality education for all Gilford students.

Regardless of color, place the right people in the right positions

To The Daily Sun,

I have no problem with starting five, or the entire 12-man roster, of the Celtics all being Black Americans. The true fan wants the hometown team to win. I am not thinking about "if only they would put a white guy on the court." I know why. The black guys are the best, and if winning is the objective, while entertaining the fans, the coach and management, place the right people in the right position to do just that.

Bill Russell did not like playing Boston because he was the only black ball player and he was a star, but fans did not like the color of his skin. Sixty years later the sneaker is on the other foot. Millions of fans hold the athlete in high esteem, until that hero does something stupid. Hey, O.J. got away with two murders because he was black.

For those two-bit actors whining about the percentages and threatening to leave my America, go, and take other bonehead hate-America people with you. Whoopi, Rosie, Sharpton, why not take Hussein Obama with you? He doesn't like white people, and he uses black people. (Recent stats regarding black on white murders in USA?)
