Don't presume to guess about my political stands or views on anything

To The Daily Sun,

Could someone please, other than those two women who are major Trump supporters, point out to me where and when Mr. Vervaeke said in his letter(s) that he is supporting/voting for Hillary?

Was I reading the wrong article? Did I miss something? Or perhaps they read what they wanted to, and went off with their support of, I guess the only candidate they think should win.

Oops, does that mean because I defended Mr. Vervaeke or said that about Trump that I too must be a supporter for Hillary? Or I support Hillary because she is a woman, same as me?

Do not ever assume to guess about my political stands or views on anything. It's not worth your time, ladies. And frankly it is none of your business either.

Motorcycle Museum will be holding sales over next several weekends

To The Daily Sun,

It was with sadness that we announced the closing of our motorcycle museum in Meredith on July 18. This has been a lifelong dream of mine to honor police officers who rode the primitive motors of old and to bring their history to the general public. Our greatest satisfaction has come from the public who leave our museum with a greater understanding and renewed pride towards those that protect and serve.

We are proud of the fact that the museum has been solely funded by admission and the proceeds from our gift shop. It was our goal to stay in the Meredith location until at least the 100th anniversary of Laconia Motorcycle Week, at which time we were hoping a family member would continue our dream. We cannot thank Charlie St. Clair and Jennifer Anderson enough for all they have done for us.

Over the next several weeks we will be conducting a sale on our property every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The sale will help to fund our relocation and to help pay our legal bills.

Most of what we are selling is non-motorcycle related but we will be selling some parts and pieces that we have multiples of. Antiques, boats, a jet ski, trailers, antique tractor, toys I had as a kid and collectibles of almost every variety will be on sale. Everything that says Meredith is also for sale in the gift shop at half price.

We have been allowing elderly residents in the area to put their bikes for sale at the museum free of charge and there are still four of those motorcycles left. We do this for their safety.
During the sale, we will also be making Junior Motor Officers until all of our badges and ID cards are gone. Every child who takes a pledge to read every night for a half hour, always obey their parents and promises not to bully will receive a free badge and Junior Motor Officer ID card.

Doug Frederick
