Winnipesaukee Wellness Center is a great local gem

To The Daily Sun,

I would like to tell you about a great local gem you should look into. My wife and I go there the three days, Monday, Wednesday and Friday, they are open from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Winnipesaukee Wellness Center (WWC) is located at 78 Whittier Highway (Rte. 25) in Moultonborough (next to Dunkin' Donuts). They are a nonprofit facility under LRGHealthcare, but are self-sustaining.

There are many different exercise machines as well as weight strengthening classes, as well as a mind challenging word game on the board. 

All are supervised by a health professional. If you have a particular problem they will set you up with a program designed to help get you going. We are a great group and have fun while getting fit.

We are grateful that we have the WWC to enjoy a much more active lifestyle. Come and check us out.

If the town had kept the Belmont Mill is good repair . . . maybe

To The Daily Sun,

I read with interest a letter in today's papers saying how wonderful the old mill building is in downtown Belmont. The suggestion that the taxpayers would even consider spending money on the old building is foolish. Perhaps, had the town maintained it over the years and not allowed it to become such a mess then, perhaps, we could do something with it.

What don't the selectmen understand — we simply can't afford it — period; end of story. We are already overtaxed beyond our means and the school (department) has seen to that recently. If you want to buy the mill you will need to first give taxpayers a huge break as of now they can't afford it period. Sell it. Rent it. But do not buy it under any circumstances. The building is not worth the estimated costs to renovate, etc.

If the building is owned by the town and thus by the taxpayers then we should say no to this foolish idea. Many of us would love to own waterfront property or drive a Lincoln, but no we really can't afford them, and the taxpayers of Belmont can't afford this either.
