Dave DeVoy is a gentleman. He is not crass, impulsive or vindictive

To The Daily Sun,

Seeing all the mud-slinging that is going on at the county offices we should ask ourselves: must our politics be so ugly that this boorish behavior is accepted? Each commissioner should look in the mirror and decide whether his behavior is advancing the county or just indulging himself and his ego.

Steve Nedeau apparently knew exactly what he would be faced with and, being the gentleman that he is, had no stomach for it. Who will want to serve if they have to spend their time dealing with pre-conceived notions, reactionary intransigence. and personal attacks?

Having run against Dave DeVoy for county commissioner, I can say unequivocally, though we disagree in many ways, that he is a gentleman. He is civil, not crass; thoughtful, not impulsive, and forgiving, not vindictive. After he was elected, he spent the time necessary to learn how the county operates and has acted accordingly as commissioner.

Surely we could make better use of seldom used railroad corridor

To The Daily Sun,

After seeing the front-page picture of The Daily Sun of the two young girls playing on the railroad tracks along Paugus Bay, and then reading the response from the N.H. state coordinator of Operation Lifesaver, it made me wonder. Why not turn this state-owned land that has "admittedly seasonal and very rare railroad" usage into an active recreational corridor for our community?

Surely this land would be of much greater use and benefit if our residents and tourists could walk and bike (and fish) from Laconia to the Weirs. Wouldn't this make it much easier to complete the WOW Trail? I would think the Winnipesauke Railroad could continue to run from The Weirs to Meredith and beyond and everyone would be happy.
