Reps who want to de-fund the county farm shouldn't be re-elected

To The Daily Sun,
Last spring, certain Carroll County representatives voted to slash the Carroll County Farm's budget — thereby forcing employee terminations, reduction in the application of fertilizers and discontinuation of cord wood procurement for the firewood business, among other restraints. Many of these short-sighted representatives are now advocating for a plan
to convert the farm into a 'learning center,' duplicating the work of the UNH Cooperative Extension. Don't be fooled by this facade; these people are trying to terminate our historical farm.

Although this attack on the farm is only one issue in a campaign of many concerns, many of us in the agricultural community believe that these representatives showed such poor judgement in de-funding the farm that they should not be re-elected.

Defend the county farm by voting to unseat incumbent Glenn Cordelli and vote instead for farm supporters in District 4: Karel Crawford, Gary Chehames, and Paul Puntureiri (vote for two of the three).

Mainstream media needs to report all the news; stop censorship

To The Daily Sun,

Wake up America! We are facing a very serious problem in our country. This has to do with our mainstream media news stations.

It is a proven fact that they are censoring their news reports, to suit their own personal political agenda. They have taken it upon themselves to decide what news our citizens should be allowed to see and hear. Sounds like a communist country to me.

This is a very serious problem which must be addressed, immediately.

Whether we like what we hear or not, the choice to hear it, should be left up to the citizens, not the media. It is their job to report all news in a truthful manner, not pick and choose what they want us to hear.

For example, the day Wikileaks released the emails that exposed the revelations about the Clinton email scandals, it was not reported by the Associated Press, CBS, CNBC, CNN, MSNBC or NBC. It was reported on Fox News.

It should have been reported on all media stations. It was news that all Americans have the right to know.
Is this where we want to go? Do we want to let the media pick and choose the news they want us to hear or do we want to hear the facts as they happen? Demand that these deceitful practices be stopped now.

Tell our mainstream media to report all the news just as it happens and stop the censorship, immediately.
This is America, not China, Russia or any other communist country. Don't let them turn us into one.
