The majority of Americans don't let politics rule their lives

To The Daily Sun,

Russ Wiles wrote Tuesday, July 5, that President Obama and every other Democrat in the country doesn't want to give us the opportunity to feel good about ourselves or feel patriotic. I think he needs to get out of the bomb shelter he's living in because I and most Americans just had one hell of a Fourth of July.

And who's not feeling good about themselves? Maybe you. I feel good, and I'm pretty sure that most Americans are. This country has its flaws, and we're by no means perfect, but the majority of us don't let politics rule our lives. You use words like "alleged" when you talk about articles you read, but then you take what you've read as fact. Most everyone else knows that if it's alleged it can't be factual.

Honestly, in the year or so that I've been reading your letters you have never written one word that has been positive. Have you ever thought about looking for all the positive things in the world today? Maybe you should. They won't be hard to find. Times in this country aren't the best they've ever been, but they sure aren't the worst.

With an outlook like yours how could you not think that things will only get worse. Most of us though don't have your outlook. The United states of America is still the best country in the world and always will be. For some reason all you want to do is bash on it. It's not all bad, you know. You live in one of the most beautiful areas in the world, where year after year people come from all over to enjoy all the natural beauty that it offers. How can you not be enjoying it.

All you have to say is that someone is trying to take it all away from us. Enough is enough Russ. You're bringing us down. Don't worry, be happy. Or at least don't be so @#$% negative!

Team behind fireworks an example of what makes Meredith great

To The Daily Sun,

It was wonderful to see so many people enjoying the festivities and watching the spectacular fireworks display in Meredith on July 4. The Greater Meredith Program facilitates the fireworks display for the town and would like to thank Matt O'Neill of Meredith Marina for donating the boat that was used to pull the fireworks barge into Meredith Bay and remain with them throughout the event.

Our appreciation is extended to Fire Chief Jones, Police Chief Morrow, Town Manager Phil Warren, DPW Director Mike Faller and Community Center Director Vint Choiniere for their planning and organization.

It is the cooperation and support of our town officials, local businesses and residents that make Meredith such a great community. Wishing everyone a wonderful summer.

Liz Lapham
Executive Director
Greater Meredith Program
