Barnstead Open Farm Day has become a fourth Sat. in July tradition

To The Daily Sun,

The fifth annual Barnstead Open Farm Day was a great success. We added three new farms to the event, and to our local community.

The Barnstead Farmers and Gardeners Network would like to thank our visitors for making this day so successful for our local farmers. Without your support, this event could not go on. Thank you.

Thank you to all of the participating farms. We appreciate the work it takes to get ready for this event, while you are juggling numerous other important responsibilities. You make this event the unique day that it has always been.

Thank you to our faithful sponsors: KDL Mold Solutions, The White Buffalo Trading Post, Valley Dam Feed, The Local Butcher, Good Stuff Farm, Barnstead Community Grange, and our newest sponsors: The Garden Bar and Coop-Da-Hill Farm. Our farmers and the greater community are so fortunate to have you.

Open Farm Day is an annual Barnstead event that takes place on the fourth Saturday of July. Admission is always free. Mark your calendars and we will see you next year. Check us out on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/TheBarnsteadFarmersAndGardenersNetwork/

Most qualified is easily outweighed by untrustworthy & mendacious

To The Daily Sun,

I am responding to Susan Estrich's column which appeared in in the Aug. 3 Daily Sun.

Apparently, the Democratic nominee for president just can't answer questions without making prevaricating statements. Like saying to Chris Wallace that the director of the FBI said she had no emails that were classified.

She is riding on the coattails of her husband and is used to having her way by being the epitome of a stranger to the truth.

The Benghazi video lies are one example. As you so aptly state, the question should not be who you like or want to have a beer with, but who will work for the people, and not equivocate and pander to suit her purpose.

It is also true that absent the conspiracy and collusion involving Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Hillary Clinton would not nave been the Democratic nominee.

Being the most qualified to run for president of the United States does not compare to being untrustworthy and mendacious. The power of the president is to persuade and negotiate, but above all, be truthful, not licentious.

With all due respect to your esteemed background, you seem to have a clouded view of what Hillary Clinton accomplished as secretary of state.

Rich Tjaden
