We'll not spend county funds on appeal of Matthew Logue matter 111 NO APPEAL

To The Daily Sun,

As commissioners elect, we would like to state that Belknap County has wasted much time and money on lawsuits. We intend to execute county policy in accordance with state statutes. We do not intend to support an appeal of the Matthew Logue personnel matter to the New Hampshire Supreme Court. It is counter-productive, in our view, to spend time and the public purse on a course of action which has been repudiated by the voters,

Vanity aside, the current county commissioners should respect the wishes of the voters of Belknap County and put an end to expensive legal wrangling.

Richard Burchell & David DeVoy
Belknap County Commissioners Elect

Raffle & Turkey Bowl to raise funds for new LHS health facilities

To The Daily Sun,

Laconia High School has two great organizations that have offered to assist in a renovation project that will result in new health and wellness facilities at LHS. These rooms will be utilized by not only the students and faculty but also be accessible to members of our community as well.

This project entails moving the existing weight room and relocating it into a revamped strength training room and aerobic/cardio room. The aerobic/cardio room will support programs such as yoga, Zumba and cardiovascular equipment as well. Our goal is to offer state of the art health/wellness opportunities for our students and the community so we can be a healthier Laconia.

Laconia Youth Football is sponsoring one of these fundraising campaigns. This is a raffle involving two packages which include a pair of tickets to the New England Patriots vs. Buffalo Bills on Dec. 28 at 1 p.m. at Gillette Stadium. These packages also include a night stay on 12/27 at the Courtyard Inn in Norwood, Mass., which is less than 10 miles from the stadium. The first-place prize also includes a $100 gift certificate to Splitsville Luxury Lanes, the newest restaurant located at Patriots Place. The third place prize is a $50 gift certificate to The Local Eatery in Laconia. All proceeds from this raffle go back into the renovation for the studio.

The other event we have is the first annual Turkey Bowl taking place at the Bank of New Hampshire Stadium behind Laconia High school on Nov. 28 and 29. This is being sponsored by Lakes Region Flag Football and will be a two-day flag football tournament. This will be a great event to bring Thanksgiving football to the Lakes Region. Proceeds from this event will go toward purchasing equipment for the health/wellness studio at Laconia High School.
