Interlakes Theatre Co. is here to lift you out of the holiday season abyss

To The Daily Sun,

As President Gerald Ford said many years ago, our long national nightmare is over. This historic election has come to an end. Whether you celebrated or mourned the decision, the stress that many off us had hoped would disappear seems to have been turned up several notches.

Thankfully, Thanksgiving is here to kick off our holiday season. For many of us, this truly unique American holiday involves one specific action; eating. Yes, bring out those loose-fitting pants. Have the Tums or Roland's at the ready! It's time for Thanksgiving dinner. White meat or dark meat? Cornbread stuffing or oyster stuffing? Jellied cranberry sauce from a can or homemade cranberry sauce? Pumpkin pie or apple pie? Decisions, more decisions and more decisions. And that means stress. A lot of stress.

Right after Thanksgiving comes Black Friday. Getting to the stores in the middle of the night. Specials. Getting to the front of the line. Stress and more stress. After Black Friday the shopping season really begins. What do I buy my husband? What do I buy my wife? And grandma and grandpa? The shopping list is endless. Just when you are about to lose your mind, someone or something comes along and lifts you out of the abyss and places your world back in proper alignment. This year, Interlakes Theatre is just that someone!

On Dec. 10 at 7:30 p.m. and again on Dec. 11 at 2 p.m., join all of us at Moultonborough Academy, 25 Blake Road in Moultonborough, as the Interlakes Theatre Company presents a holiday spectacular "Nuncrackers the Musical." This holiday classic, written by Dan Goggin, features Maggie Letsche Lavagno as Reverend Mother, Julia Suriano as Sister Amnesia, and ILST favorite Mikey LoBalsalmo as Father Virgil. This outstanding cast is directed by Mary Kate Burton, is choreographed by Al Kresheh, and produced by the one and only Nancy Barry. This outrageous musical is brought to you for the unheard of price of $25. You read that right. It's just $25 per ticket to see the holiday event of the season!

These two presentations will be live and on stage at Moultonborough Academy, 25 Blake Road in Moultonborough. Interlakes Theatre has made it easier than ever to purchase tickets. You can order your tickets by calling 1-603-707-6035 or by purchasing them online at

So pick up that phone and make that call. Charge up that battery and hit the internet. Whatever you do, get your tickets before they're gone. We'll see you Dec. 10 at 7:30 p.m. or Dec. 11 at 2 p.m. at Moultonborough Academy for Interlakes Theatre's presentation of "Nuncrackers the Musical." See you there.

Obma told the truth about Hillary for President back in 2008

To The Daily Sun,

I take umbrage with E.Scott Cracraft's column of Nov. 15.

The American people have spoken. Trump won the election with almost 300 electoral votes fair and legal. You state it wasn't a mandate, but I've stated before, Clinton won big in three states. California, Massachusetts and New York, encompassing 110 electoral votes. That was about half of her total. I would call that a mandate.

The country is not united, indicative of the mainstream media like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and the Washington Post, ranting pernicious and prevaricating stories about Donald Trump. To be fair, Trump is not without faults, but the daily vitriol espoused during the campaign was scurrilous and mendacious to say the least.

The people wanted change and were tired of the establishment rhetoric of the last eight years.

The Democratic Party put up a candidate who ran on the fact she was the first female to run for president. Also 30 some years as first lady, senator, and the secretary of state with no real accomplishments to her credit.

You allude to the blame factor, which includes the Bernie supporters, the D.N.C., etc. You fail to include Hillary herself.

President Obama in 2008, said Hillary was a likable person, but not to be president.That was also true in 2016.
