Thank you Mike Moyer for stepping up to run for Belknap sheriff

To The Daily Sun,

What wonderful news it was to see Mike Moyer throw his hat in the ring for Belknap County Sheriff.

I cannot think of anyone more qualified to take on this crucial position. With the challenges facing not only our towns and cities but our counties and states, is is more important than ever to have a man of character and compassion with the experience to get the job done and done right.

Mike has "skin in the game." This is his home. His roots here go deep, and because of that his understanding of our community is unparalleled.

I am proud to know you, Mike, and grateful that you are willing to take on this challenge for the betterment of Belknap County. I hope that all of my friends and fellow citizens will join me in supporting Mike Moyer in his bid for Belknap County Sheriff.

Thank you, Mike, for being willing to take on this daunting task.

Making band an after-school program makes it an after-thought

To The Daily Sun,

This letter is to support the music program at Laconia High School. Holding this program after school makes it like an after-thought.

Students get tired and stressed after a full day of classes and may choose not to participate. Then there are those who have after-school activities, part-time jobs or other responsibilities. Something as involved as music requires one's full attention.

As a former LHS band member, I know how rewarding and memorable those times are. I was involved from 1961-1965, under the capable direction of Mr. Bernard Williams. Over those four short sheets we enjoyed a trip to Quebec, the World's Fair in New York and an exchange concert every year. There were countless football games and parades.

Then, there were our fund raisers to support our activities — Mason's candy, peanut brittle drives and selling special calender's. Once a year we sold tickets for a concert in the school auditorium. Our activities (not tax dollars) paid for trips and the purchase of new uniforms.

The best times of my high school years were band oriented and I have bored friends and families with these stories for years.

The band showed me something that was bigger than myself and made me more confident. It left me with something I could use later and a few times I have played in our church.

Fast forward about 20 years and our daughter became involved in music. This time is was Belmont High School, under the management of Ray Cragie, He was an LHS band member, too — Class of 1968.

During those times, I relived my band experiences all over again. This gave us something in common, as we shared those times for four short years.

Music brings about relaxation, self confidence and attention to detail. When it is over, students have a skill not everyone has, but more importantly, pleasant memories that will last a lifetime of those short years.

Please support the music program.

John Morrison
