To The Daily Sun,
In response to James Veverka, our nation has many hostile nations that hate us for who we are as Americans, and, Mr.Veverka, Americans are willing to lay down their lives in defense for our country and freedom.
All your letters are against Americans, our Christian heritage, against our elected Republican Party members, also the Tea Party, Fox News, ect. Remember you are insulting half the population of the United States of America. You would be welcomed in any Muslim country to write an anti-American slander. I will even pay for your one-way ticket, for you to go and stay there.
As regarding to John Demakowski, what he says is right, he encourages everyone to trust in God, and believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins, even yours, James.
Furthermore, you said his name is "God John Demakowski." How wrong you are, hear O Israel, the Lord Our God is one Lord (Deu 6:4). John Demakowski would say amen to that. You may be the cheerleader for the anti-American party, all payed up to Obamacare, but 80 percent of all the people of Tilton are ashamed of what you write in The Daily Sun. United as a Godly nation we stand, divided we fall. You will fail because the majority believe in God we trust, God bless the U.S.A.

To The Daily Sun,
I generally agree with Steve Earle and his assessment of our beloved collector of all things obtuse, irrelevant, irreverent and trivial, Mr. James Veverka. However, I must take issue with Steve regarding his lack of acknowledgment of the new post assumed by the esteemed letter writer of all things progressive and mindless.
Based on his astute 2013 letters to the editor, and his exalted position in the Center for the Study of Absurdity, he must have been recruited from the elite Mensa Society. His brilliant edifications regarding the foibles of the "right wing nuts" and the too numerous to mention "Tea Party Potty Tricks", have recently left me speechless and in awe.
So Steve, please, please, we must all give credit where credit is due. In fact, I'm hoping James will be more forthcoming and not be so darn humble. I am willing to bet that he is indeed the president of the Center for the Study of Absurdity. I can't possibly think of anyone more qualified for the position. In fact, I'm even betting the voting was unanimous. Me, myself and I all voted for the same person. I would so much love to be a fly on the wall during one of those "heated debates" that occur among the editorial board. I salute James, clearly a legend in his own mind. Carry on the good fight my man. I promise you, we will give your future submissions all the attention and concern that they deserve.

To The Laconia Daily Sun,
A little about myself: Welton Falls and Cardigan Mountain, these were my playgrounds as a child. New Hampshire and its mountains so beautiful.
I'm a person who likes to stay informed of things that concern my environment. I do not promote things that would harm our environment or the beauty of our great state.
I know that to produce electricity they have nuclear plants. These do harm the environment. These plants make radioactive waste that is harmful and remains forever. The method of disposal is to go destroy another piece of property by burying this waste encased in millions of pounds of cement. A rather large hole is needed here. Coal, fuel oil, or jet oil is another source to make power. These however, are caustic and harmful as well. Never mind the devastation left behind from mining or extracting from the earth and the refining process.
Wind towers to me are mysteriously beautiful, kind of like stars in the night sky. I know, now your saying this is a stretch of the imagination comparing the two, but I like to think that the same Divine Spirit that created the stars in the night, also planned out the life and intellect of the person/persons who invented such an amazing machine as the wind tower. My thought is that these towers do hot harm the environment, and they are not offensive. The towers take nothing from us but only borrow the wind as it passes by.
In closing, I would like to thank the company for the thoughtful planning and designs to make these farms safe and the environment a friendly source of power.
I hope some day there will be others that think as I do.

To The Daily Sun,
In the past few weeks, Walter F. Kalin has written two letters to the Sun. The first letter reported the decline of Laconia High School. The second letter expands this decline to include our entire educational system. I have since reread both letters and have a couple of observations:
The first letter describes the well-intentioned efforts of a substitute teacher, recalling horrible behavior by some students. I would, however, like a clarification of the following:
"I know a lot of families in Laconia. Students from good families seem to do well, but are frustrated by so many rotten apples in the barrel. Students from broken families or indifferent parents do poorly and are a big part of the discipline problem."
So sad. How judgmental and ignorant.
I would really like to have this gentleman's definitions of "good families" and "broken families".
I haven't heard the term "broken family" in many years. I honestly thought that we, as a society, had evolved beyond that mentality. I sincerely hope that "broken" does not mean divorced, widowed, or separated. Broken relationships do not determine broken families. I have many dear friends, co-workers and acquaintances who are single parents. They have astonishing children and are astonishing parents. I returned to Laconia 20 years ago to raise my two children. We were NEVER a broken family. Who sets the parameters for "good"? Are there really that many "rotten apples"?
Letter two quotes a very "wise" friend who blames education for the world's inability to live in peace and the ultimate fall of civilization.
Isn't it just possible that, on his last substituting excursion, Mr. Kalin simply had a bad day? Education is a two-way street. To get students involved, teachers need to illuminate their subject matter and inspire their students.
Our schools are filled with "good" — in fact — "great" kids. It is a shame that these gentlemen are incapable of appreciating our greatest national resource.

To The Daily Sun,
I would like take time to recognize Broadway North dancer Kylee Drew for taking her time and working with the Boys & Girls Club of the Lakes Region. She has been working with several girls and boys at the club one day a week for the past several weeks. Broadway North was very gracious and allowed the club to take part in their Christmas Extravaganza that was held at Inter-lakes High School on December 14. This invitation to participate in their recital was very last minute and some of the dancers were not able to make it. None of it could have happened however, without the support of the Boys and Girls Club and parents.
I would like to thank Kelsey Nims of Beyond The Fringe for donating her time and her help with hair, make-up and costumes. I would also like to thank Lacy Lewis for taking the dancers out to lunch in between recitals; and of course none of this could have happened without the Boys and Girls club and Dana Meade & Broadway North!
