Democrats believe Islamic terrorists will obey strict gun laws

To The Daily Sun,

Things I know or believe:

— Hillary lied to the families of the men killed in Benghazi (video was the cause).

— Hillary did not ask the military to help in Benghazi.

— Hillary's email scandal should get her arrested.

— The new film – "13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi" will not be Hillary's favorite movie.

— Hillary and her followers will claim that answering questions on Benghazi qualifies her for president.

— Hillary will cite travel as her national security strength. Will not mention Benghazi, Russian Reset, Libya or Egypt.

— The Democratic Party and Hillary will credit the Paris Climate Change Agreement as a major step in the defeat of ISIS.

— In spite of everything, Hillary will be the Democratic Party nominee for president. Senator Sanders does not have a chance.

— Senator Sanders will be forgotten by April 1, 2016.

— Hillary and the Democrats will not say the words — radical Islamic terrorists.

— Democrats will keep searching for a motive (lack of a job, global warming, etc.) as to why radical Islamic terrorists want to kill us.

— Despite the fact that there are over 20,000 gun laws, Hillary and the Democratic Party is calling for more gun laws.

— Democrats believe radical Islamic terrorists, killers and criminals, will obey gun laws or pay a severe penalty.

— The Dallas Cowboys/NY Jets game will get higher ratings than the Democrat Party debate.

My fiance & I wish to get married at Timber Hill Farm in Gilford

To The Daily Sun,

My fiancé and I both grew up in small New Hampshire towns. We knew we always wanted to have our wedding on a family-owned New Hampshire farm. That is why we visited the farm of Andy, Martina, and Isaac Howe. We instantly fell in love with the farm, and its history.

I was lucky enough to have my fiancé, Tom, propose to me on an uncharacteristically warm Sunday morning in December. It would mean the world to Tom and me to say "I do" at Timber Hill Farm, among our family, friends, and the amazing Howe family.

From the time we spent with the Howes, I could tell how much their farm truly meant to them. Timber Hill Farm is their life, and to be able to share the beauty and history that is Timber Hill Farm with others on the most important day of their lives is truly magical.

Not only are the Howes committed to their farm, and the Town of Gilford, allowing weddings and farm-to-table events, under the control and discretion of the Howes, is integral to small family farms to ensure economic viability for New Hampshire's remaining working farms. It is the New Hampshire way to support the growth of our own local family businesses and farms.

I truly hope the residents of Gilford reconsider the disallowance of weddings at Timber Hill Farm. Tom and I would truly be blessed to be welcomed to your town, and at Timber Hill Farm, to share the most important day of our lives.

Lauren Jenkins & Thomas Warner
