Voicing 'opinions' as truth, without proof, is same as fabrication

To The Daily Sun,

While I can understand why Earle would be discomforted by the mention of "birthers", considering the embarrassment they brought upon themselves and the Republican Party, he is well aware that they are alive and well and have redirected their efforts to a new conspiracy I have referred to as the Transcript Disorder.

The notion that any Obama record is "sealed" is false. Research will show, that the word "sealed", when applied to documents refers to records that would normally be public information, but that a judge has ruled cannot be released without the court's permission. These supposedly "sealed" (they like the term "sealed" because it makes it appear so much more sinister) records that Earle refers to, are private documents that Obama hasn't released — and as I've stated before, other presidents haven't released them either.

It is public knowledge that President Obama graduated Magna Cum Laude from Harvard Law School and was elected president of the law review, which should make it clear that he obtained good grades and really didn't have a difficult time graduating. Graduating with honors is granted to undergraduate students who achieve high grade point averages. To obtain the honor of graduating Magna Cum Laude, one must obtain a grade point average of 3.65 to 3.79. This may vary slightly from school to school. So, for Obama to claim a 3.7 gpa is well within the whelm of possibility.

I would hope that Earle would enlighten us with his conspiracy theory as to how Obama could be elected president of the Harvard Law Review, considered the most prestigious law reviews in the country, as the first black president in its 104-year history. The position is considered the highest position at Harvard Law School.

Earle insists that I point out his various lies. Most recently, his lies have been to claim the President defrauded Columbia and Harvard, that the administration has six American Islamic activists working for them that are Muslim Brotherhood operatives, and closer to home, that I get my information from MSNBC. He continues to justify these lies by claiming they are his "personal views", or a "difference of opinion." While I recognize his "personal views" and respect his "difference of opinion", Earle doesn't seem to understand that when voicing these "views" and "opinions" as truth, without proof, they are considered fabrications. He submits these concocted "views" and "opinions" often, not knowing whether or not they are actually true — false statements made with the intent to deceive. Earle's lame defense for this misinformation is that he relies on a "blog site he trusts", his "reliable sources", and the "accuracy" of others. It would be enlightening if Earle could support his contentions with facts and appropriate sources to substantiate his claims. Lacking this information, we must conclude that his statements are manufactured. I would caution Earle not to equate "lack of proof" as "proof."

Another observation I'd like to make, is that centrist independents now determine election outcomes, and no one that can rub two healthy brain cells together is buying the various conspiracy theories which emanate from the far right.

We requested LPD check in on our property while we were gone & they did

To The Daily Sun,

We would like to express our appreciation to the Laconia Police Department. We requested a check of our property several time. On the days of our return, an officer came by to be sure we resided here. Additionally, we received a security check list noting each time our premises was checked. How blessed we are to have such a caring, dedicated Police Department. We thank them for their service.

Thanks for your support of the St. James Church Christmas Fair

To The Daily Sun,
On behalf of the Women's Guild of St. James Episcopal Church, I would like to thank the people that were instrumental in the success of our recent Christmas Fair. Because we have recently sold St. James building to the Boys and Girls Club we were afraid people might not know where we are located. Our concerns were unfounded because local people came to our aid and spread the word that the congregation of St. James Episcopal is alive and well and sharing space at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church on Parade Road.

Thanks to Stafford Oil, American Eyecare, Carole Johnson, Rose Nyatsambo, Sheila Akerstrom, Betty Lacroix and Judy Farr for raffle prizes; Bob Meade for articles for the papers, Taylor Community for the use of their sign, Lou Gaynor of HATT who made the chowder for our luncheon, Karin Salome and Carole Johnson for hosting craft groups in their homes, the members of the youth group who waited table and all of the members
of St James who volunteered their skills, time and talents to make the fair a success.

Karen Vliet, Secretary

St. James Women's Guild

We mahy not have the power to stop it but we won't approve it either

To The Daily Sun,

Dear Jean:

I can't tell you how delighted I was to read your letter in The Laconia Daily Sun today. Information we have provided to the press in seeking attention and support has had to be mostly factual and informative. Your letter had personal warmth and experience of heritage in your hometown. Your background shows a love for culture and architectural design. I am so pleased with your attachment to Laconia.

Now you are living in a community that has been totally restored as the very important knitting industry and is a famed historical site to make trips to visit. My Uncle Lowell of our Lowell family worked in the Lowell Mills. He lived in Methuen and I lived with them for a year. Fond memories of that area too.

We will not approve the demolition even though we have not power to stop it. We will conduct a public hearing Wednesday, January 22 at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, Laconia. We may go for an injunction. And we will continue to picket Dunkin' Donuts (by Hathaway House) on Union Avenue each weekend.
