Mark Dec. 18 on your calendar; let's vote to reopen recycling center

To The Daily Sun,

Sanbornton residents have shown with petition-signing and attendance at a public hearing that we want to have our swap opportunity at the Transfer Station/Recycling Center back again. We want access to the metal pile, in what likely will be a new set-up, to respond to the insurer. Coming up is our Special Town Meeting for Friday, Dec. 18, at 7 p.m. at the elementary school. Registered voters: come and cast the votes to make this all happen. Put this on your calendar.

When I was at the Transfer Station/Recycling Center before Thanksgiving, a couple brought a pick-up with "reusables" in the back. I brought home the very large bureau mirror in a lovely frame — to bring back for someone's reuse when we have our swap area again. Manager Mike Adams set aside a sturdy wooden bench that "could be for children to sit on when they look at books," as he put it. Mike has saved the bookcases.

The inter-knit community that we are truly believes in swap, in re-use. Repairs to equipment can be done with re-use out of the metal pile. It is up to all of us now to come to the Special Town Meeting and put our votes to use. We also need volunteers to give letters of interest to the selectmen, for filling seats on a restored Solid Waste Committee, that hasn't met since 2009.

Shaheen has demonstrated blind allegiance to the White House

To The Daily Sun,

Where is Senator Shaheen? I would like to know more about why she supports "sanctuary cities" and where she would like to see on in New Hampshire.

In all fairness to the senator, she has emulated everything that President Obama has stood for during her term in the U.S. Senate, including the silly plan to contain ISIS. We have all seen how well that is working out.

I watched Senator Shaheen recently getting off Air Force One with President Obmaa. She is someone who the president can count on no matter wheat the issue is; however, she demonstrates nothing as a senator other than blind allegiance to the White House.

New Hampshire needs more than this.
