Thanks to Bank of N.H. for giving Full Basket Co-op temp home

To The Daily Sun,

The Full Basket Co-op, a local farmer sales cooperative, would like to express its gratitude to the Bank of New Hampshire for allowing us to use their atrium for our market deliveries for the past three weeks. We had arranged to be at Pitman's Freight Room, but the fire they experienced meant we needed to find an alternative location on short notice. The atrium space worked great for us and was very convenient for our customers. As local small farmers we appreciate the support the Bank of New Hampshire has shown for the Thursday Outdoor Marketplace where we have a sales booth during the regular market season. Though a small gesture for the bank, it meant a lot to our group.

We'll see our customers at Pitman's Freight Room this week, and for the rest of the fall market season. To learn more about the Full Basket Co-op, visit www.minglewoodfarm.co.nf.

I'm still waiting for one specific example of a Fox News lie

To The Daily Sun,

Another day and Obama's much criticized ACA sign-up boondoggle shows no signs of improvement. Young folks would post lol (laughing out loud) if they we not so embarrassed by voting for the incompetent community organizer. Funny how they keep saying those of us who didn't vote for the man are racist while they voted for him exactly for the color of his skin, imo (in my opinion). After all he had zero accomplishments to his record. It might have been different if he had signed aboard some competent help but his crew consists of equally deficient talent or more so. You know it's bad when even the unions are screaming their discontent. Still nothing moves the man, he has a plan and he's sticking to it no matter how many other people it hurts. It's for the greater good of socialism you know, we must copy the European models even while the Europeans are working to get out from under those models. I read they are having some success too. There approach is for austerity and raising taxes. Conservatives here are pilloried by the left because we want austerity without raising taxes. The left's true disciples call us villains and liars because we want smaller efficient government with lass waist and corruption, what extreme positions.
I see alias L.J. Siden is much disturbed that I wrote that no L.J. Siden exists, based on reliable information. Does L.J. deny he is using an alias? He says he has addressed my accusation that the left uses lies and misinformation, while true he has not attacked my person, I still must wonder why the alias? Now about the "birthers". Obama has only himself to blame for that because he used fraud to get into the collages he attended by claiming to be a foreign student, traveled on a foreign passport and generally lied his way through. Nuf said!
I'd still invite any liberal to give readers an example of a lie told by Fox News. It's one of their favorite smears but as yet, after years, I have heard none. They run for cover when challenged saying things like "it's all lies" or "I don't have the time now". And how about the one where they claim the Tea Party are all racists, but have yet to show any evidence of any extensive racism among members. Plenty of examples of lies on NBC, CNN and such though. Maybe they just get confused by all those initials.

Everything was great about my stay except for the lack of recycling

To The Daily Sun,

On September 23 I entered LRGH and had my right hip replaced. The procedure went well. I was so pleased with all of the nurses, aides and therapists. They had such a great attitude which made my stay very pleasant.

On September 26 I was transferred to Golden View Retreat in Meredith for rehab. I had a private room which was very home like. There were a number of choices on the menu and everything was delicious. I had therapy twice a day. I was very impressed by the nurses, aid and therapists and everyone else I came in contact with. I recommend Golden View for anyone that needs rehab.

There was one thing that disturbed me, and that was the need for recycling. A great many items that were recyclable went into the trash.

Talk about condemning an entire class of people, with no exceptions

To The Daily Sun,

I had to laugh out loud at the hypocrisy of the lady who, in your October 22 edition, bemoaned the idea that people condemn everyone who receives public assistance in any way as taking advantage of the system, yet in the same letter demonizes all of the so called one percent of "Uber Rich" as she characterizes them as follows — "The one percent of the wealthy want to keep all of what they have without caring about or feeling any brotherly concern or responsibility for others who are less fortunate than them."

Talk about condemning an entire class of people with no exception! Hasn't she ever heard of people like Bill and Melissa Gates or Warren Buffet, to name a few of the top of head, who have voluntarily given millions if not billions of their personal fortunes to many worthy causes?

You can't have it both ways. People needed public assistance are not all leches any more than all so called "Uber Rich" are not unfeeling, selfish tightwads.

378 students attended School to Farm event at Ramblin' Vewe

To The Daily Sun,

New Hampshire Agriculture in the Classroom recently hosted its fourth School to Farm two-day event for Belknap County fourth grade school students. This event was once again held at Ramblin' Vewe Farm in Gilford with 378 students attending plus their teachers and chaperones. On these two days, the farmland was bursting with excited students learning where their local food comes from and seeing how important it is to keep agriculture right here in New Hampshire.

We wish to thank all the presenters who exhibited and presented an educational program for the students during the day. This year our presenters were Pemi-Baker Beekeepers, Huckins Farm, Prescott Farm Environmental Education, Ox-K Farm, Belknap County Farm Bureau, Suroweic Farm, Belknap County Cooperative Education, Belknap County Conservation District, Shepherd's Hut Market, Ramblin' Vewe Farm and Lindon Garlic Farm. Again a big thank you to Ramblin' Vewe Trust for allowing us to use their farm land for this event.

However, this event would not be possible without our sponsorships. Thank you to Ramblin' Vewe Farm, Moulton Farm, Meredith Village Savings Bank, Farm Family Insurance, Cabot Creamery Cooperative, Barbara and Bill Angevine, Huckins Farm, and Allison and Jon Howe.

Ruth Smith, Coordinator
New Hampshire Agriculture in the Classroom
