GHS Class of 2017 very grateful for support of Holiday Craft Fair

To The Daily Sun,

The Gilford High School Class of 2017 just had its annual fundraiser, the GHS Holiday Craft Fair and it was a rousing success! There are so many to thank for their support. Mother Nature certainly complied with a beautiful sunny day! The Gilford School District facilities staff, as always, did a great job helping with and supporting the students in the set up and break down of the electrical needs and tarping the floors to protect them.

The following businesses donated space on their electronic signs; Melcher and Prescott, Cross Agency, Patrick's Pub, Laconia Daily Sun and The Taylor Community. Also thanks to the Bank of NH and Sawyer's for allowing the placement of wooden advertising signs. Thank you very much!

The crafters remarked time after time on how pleasant, helpful and courteous the students were.
Mark your calendar, next year's fair is Saturday December 2 from 9-3!

The minority population is growing & a brighter future is ahead

To The Daily Sun,

In response to Steve Earle, I'll quote Molly Ivins, who once wrote, "I prefer someone who burns the flag and then wraps themselves up in the Constitution, over someone who burns the Constitution and then wraps themselves up in the flag."

That is the difference between Mr. Earle and myself, and it keeps me warm at night. That and the fact that the old white population in this state and many others is dying out faster than it can replace itself. And why is that? It is due to an aging population making poor health choices, a lack of jobs to keep younger folks around, and a dearth of women willing to mate with whatever is left over.

So I'll invite Mr. Earle to go ahead and laugh away for the next four years, because the minority population is growing in this state and in this country and soon he and the rest of that band of uber conservative, racist, backwoods, misogynistic, GI Geritols will be dying out. And when that happens I'll gladly burn a flag over each of their graves and salute a better and brighter future.
