Boot drive proceeds will allow 2 kids to attend Camp Foster

To the editor,

You may have noticed and additional delay traveling down Main Street of Tilton on Thursday, August 8. The delay was due to the Tilton-Northfield Professional Firefighters Local 4659 annual collection that was able to collect $1,600 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. We want to thank you for emptying your cup holders and wallets; as you may have heard us say, every little bit adds up.

On July 9 this year, four of our members had the chance to witness how these funds collected are utilized. Each year MDA holds a week long overnight summer camp with children with muscular dystrophy at a handicap accessible camp in Bedford, New Hampshire. Tuesday of that week is IAFF day; firefighters get to spend the day at the camp, playing games, doing projects, and preparing and sharing a meal with campers.

"It was great to see all the MDA does for the kids at Camp Foster!" recalls Paramedic Gilman. It was clear from our interactions; this camp is a highlight in these children's difficult lives.

$1,600 is enough to pay for two kids to attend next year's camp. Thank you for your generous contributions and patience.

Support GOP candidates who keep their word after the election

To The Daily Sun,

If I were a wealthy person I would send money to any primary challenger to Mitch McConnell and Lindsay Graham. The same should be happening for the 2016 GOP Primary with Kelly Ayotte. Of course the goal is to have an honest republican who keeps their word after the campaign. It is always fun to watch the elite republican establishment scurry to protect one of their own. The reason for the small "r" in republican is to show what many of us think of today's GOP.
Both McConnell and Graham are worried because they know they are of no help to the America loving Joe until election time, and then, let's hope it is too late!

With the exception of Dennis Fields, I support the hard work/decisions of the GOP members of the County Delegation. Please don't let us down. Support those who understand that without a government job, nothing is for certain.

Only the court system can clarify the county budget discussion

To The Daily Sun,

Lewis Carroll to one side, it does seem strange that Rep. Huot puts such little faith in New Hampshire's court system, most especially since the learned gentleman is a retired judge. Could his reluctance stem from the confidence by the convention's attorney that the case for line item authority is pellucid? Could it be that this representative is not in fact representative of the ordinary people of Laconia but instead is a shill for the favored few?

Only Rep. Huot knows his motivation but there should be a concern on the part of everyone involved that it is good public policy to have the statutes under discussion be clarified; the only place that can be done is in our court system.

Waterski Boat Classic was a success, look for us next summer

To The Daily Sun,

I would like to thank Winnisquam Marine, Mike Testa State Farm Insurance and the Lake Winnipesaukee Historical Museum for helping to make the second annual Lakes Region Waterski Boat Classic a success. It was a beautiful day and many people turned out to enjoy the free boat rides and displays of boating memorabilia.

Special thanks to Lynda Laflamme of the Historical Museum at Funspot for help in researching local boating history and loan of race related memorabilia. Thanks to the boat owners, the Magnums in particular for their generosity in sharing their rides. Look for us again same time next summer.
