Deeply disappointed over governor's appointments to site panel

To The Daily Sun,

I have a deep concern over the appointment of state officials to fill the public representation positions on the Site Evaluation Committee, as mandated in SB-245. This is clearly not the intent of the bill in regard to public representation.

Both candidates are legislators, one a career state senator and the other a state representative. Even more concerning, is the past involvement of both legislators in the crafting of state energy bills, the very ones over which they would be providing input and decisions from a public perspective. This is clearly a conflict of interest and ethically wrong.

The three public positions should be filled by laypeople, void of state legislative and political affiliation, who truly represent the public.

Today is last Thursday downtown Laconia market of the season

To The Daily Sun,

The last day of the Thursday outdoor market season is on Thursday, Sept. 25, and we've arranged for a great finale in the Savor the Season tent.

Rachael Burklund of Laconia Village Bakery returns, preparing butternut squash latkes with sage yogurt sauce, and coffee-balsamic brined pulled pork. All the main ingredients come from vendors at the market, including squash and sage from Minglewood Farm, pork roast from Biblical Acres Farm and the coffee from Woodshed Roasting Company. The yogurt is local too, from Swain Farm in Sanbornton. Rachael will be in the tent serving samples and explaining how to make this savory yet simple combo from 3:30-4:30. Be sure to visit the Savor the Season tent and then check out all the great produce still available from our local farmers.

If you miss the Thursday market, you'll have one more chance at the Saturday Farmers' Market, which is from 8 a.m. to noon in the City Hall parking lot. It has been a great market season and all of the vendors at both markets appreciate your patronage.

The Savor the Season events this summer have been sponsored by the Lakes Region Food Network (LRFN), with grant support from the New England Grassroots Environment Fund and support from the Main Street Outdoor Marketplace.
