Walk-in applications for Santa Fund help with outerwear start soon

To the Editor

As the cold weather is coming upon us the Santa Fund of the Greater Lakes Region is getting ready for our annual outerwear distribution.

The Santa Fund of the Greater Lakes Region operates year round to help children and families. Last year we provided warm clothes, coats, boots and snow pants during the winter months to over 600 children. We will be distributing coats, boots, hats and mittens for children 16 and under living in the home. Snow pants and boots will be available for pre-k and elementary students only. WALK-IN APPLICATIONS ARE BEING TAKEN ON 10/17, 10/18, 10/26, AND 10/27 FROM 4 TO 7PM at our office at 280 Main Street in Laconia.

In addition, as recipients of funds from the Children's Auction of the Lakes Region, we feel that it is important to support Patrick's Pub Pub Mania, an event that raises so much money for the auction in our community. The Santa Fund of the Greater Lakes Region is partnering with Real Life Training and The Downtown Gym to form "Real Downtown Santas" — a Pub Mania team for the 2016 Pub Mania event.

We would like to thank our community sponsors for their donations for our team. They are Foley Oil, Insurance Outlet, Melcher and Prescott, GC Engineering, Lacasse Builders, Bootleggers, Pike Industries, Jennifer's Color Bar and Sanel Auto Parts. We would also like to thank the members of the Downtown Gym and friends who have been showing up each week to "shuffle" at Patrick's Pub to support us as well. It's for the kids!

Stay tuned for an exciting event to benefit our team as well. You're gonna love this family friendly event!

If Hillary is elected it will be bloody Islamic terrorist biz as usual

To The Daily Sun,

There they go again. Bombs going off in New York and New Jersey. People being stabbed in a mall in Minnesota and the one thing they have in common is Islam.

Say what you will, but there is no denying that fact and another fact is that Obama, Clinton and the Democrats still will not say the words "Islamic terrorist." Hundreds, no, thousands of people murdered, more thousands maimed and still these people, supposed leaders are still giving Islam cover.

Make no mistake it's Islam that is the problem, it's Islam whose Koran tells its followers to attack and murder and they have been doing this long, long before Donald Trump ever entered this world.

Hillary Clinton wants people to think that Trump is some kind of recruiting tool for terrorism. Only people ignorant of history could possible believe that. But that is exactly the people who are the targets of this misinformation ad. No mistake, there are plenty of Hillary supporters who know this to be hokum but are only to glad to spread ignorance liberally around. What is true in the ads is terrorist sites are telling prospective recruits that Trump is dangerous and anti-Muslim. Understand (that) terrorists consider that only they are true Muslims, and thus Trump is dangerous to them, the terrorists.

Hillary's ad is a clear admission that she is not a threat, not a danger to them. If Hillary is elected it's bloody business as usual. More bombs, blood, death and destruction while Clinton attacks her political enemies here at home, guts the Constitution and makes the world a far more dangerous place for our children's futures. A vote for Hillary is a vote for appeasement, the erosion of liberty and equal justice under the law.

You may not like Trump and the things he says, but consider he is for America. He does not have to do this. He could have sat home. But he saw the danger Obama and Hillary are to our safety and way of life.

Hillary Clinton is for Hillary and be damned to anyone or anything that gets in her way. She will lie, cheat, smear, slander, any means justifies her ends even if people have to die all so she gets what she wants. She is an evil, self-serving person who will sell America down the river if elected.

Moderate Democrats, Independents, hold your noses if you must, but for our nation, vote Trump.
