Thank you 'Phantom Flagger' for this random act of patriotism

To The Daily Sun,

We just want to thank the person(s) responsible for placing the American flags on the front lawns of each and every house on Walker Street and Cottonwood Avenue. This happened last year as well and we never found out who was responsible.

To the "Phantom Flagger:" thank you for this random act of kindness and patriotism. Given the current political climate it is refreshing to have neighbors who would take the time to do this. If you are out and about, take a drive up Walker and Cottonwood and see for yourself. God bless America.

Why does state still own those two homes on Main Street in Laconia?

To The Daily Sun,

Why is the state of New Hampshire in the house rental business in Laconia?

Back in October 1999, the state bought the home at 14 Main St.. Several months later, in June 2000, the state the bought the home next door at 24 Main St.

The intent in purchasing these homes, as I understand it, was that these homes were in the path of a proposed new off-ramp from Route 106.

That plan was never developed and the state still owns the homes. The state pays the City of Laconia taxes on these homes and the taxes are up-to-date, according to the tax collector.
The state now rents them and has for many years. Both are occupied.

I am curious why the state doesn't sell these home as there are no known plans to ever build a new off-ramp from Route 106 to the intersection of Route 107.
