I talk to God; I've seen his face; I know the sound of his voice

To The Daily Sun,

In response to James Veverka's letter of Jan. 31, Jim I talk to (God) every day. He answers me also. He makes promises and keeps them. He heals my body. I've seen his face. I know the sound of his voice. No one who knows me has ever accused me of be crazy, though I must admit some who don't know me have. As to Jesus being God, if you read the gospel accounts you will see that He was crucified for announcing Himself to be so.

As to his being historical, as I understand it the New Testament is unique among texts from antiquity, in that there are more surviving copies of texts and fragments from a closer period of time to the actual occurrence than any other document from the ancient era. There's nothing even close. If you deny its authenticity you have to throw out all writings from antiquity.

Jim says, "Nobody knows if there is an intelligent first cause." Poor Jim. He reminds me of an article I read a while back where a group of scientists proved that animals have feelings. Really, I never would have known that. I don't know how much money these guys spent discovering what millions of pet owner throughout the generations have know intuitively, but you know, we couldn't have known that. We needed this group of scientists to tell us. Right Jim?

I would like to take up challenge for the betterment of Meredith

To The Daily Sun,

I am running for one of the two Selectboard positions in Meredith.

For more information about myself, I am a graduate of Inter-Lakes High School and attended New Hampshire Technical Institute. I spent four years in the Coast Guard and have earned First Class Petty Officer rank after my service. I have been involved with construction, maintenance and management throughout my working career and was the Director of Buildings and Grounds, Housekeeping and Security at Tilton Prep School for 10 years.

I have lived in our town for more than 50 years and have seen many changes through those years. In the past, I have served on the Zoning Board Committee, a Trustee of Trust Funds, and most recently was a member of the Water Committee Board. Currently, I am also a committee member for the upcoming 250th Anniversary celebration of our town.

Meredith is a great town and has a lot to offer both to our residents as well as our guests. It has also a lot of challenges with our changing times. From finding a solution toward better traffic management for both cars and pedestrians, to strengthening the basic services we provide to our residents. These are just a few of the challenges we can work on.

With your help, I would like to take up the challenge and responsibility for the betterment of our town. A place to live, work and play. If you wish to share your concerns or enthusiasms about our town, please do contact me at 603-279-8603 or email me at This email address is being protected from spambots.
