Wish we'd found the 'Grand Prize' but thanks for the adventure

To The Daily Sun,

In the midst of all the negativity and turmoil that politics and elections cause, we would like to take a minute to thank the Daily Sun and Mark Brady for running the Grand Prize contest.

Being out of the Lakes Region area, we didn't know a whole lot about some of the places we were taken to by the weekly clues. In some instances we enjoyed visiting the sites and in other instances enjoyed reading information online. We spent many days wondering about the reasoning behind some of the clues and we understand that Mark will soon be revealing hidden meanings.

We obviously wish we were located closer to the final hiding place to be able to get there earlier, but we don't regret a moment of our time! Maybe another year. Thank you very much.

Joanne and Chuck Jette

Van Ostern recognizes demands a changing climate places on N.H.

To The Daily Sun,

New Hampshire needs Colin Van Ostern as its governor — to lead the state in adopting policies consistent with climate realities of the 21st Century.

Van Ostern, in his position as executive councilor, has supported carbon-neutral renewable energy projects throughout the state. His opponent and fellow executive councilor, Chris Sununu, has consistently voted against solar and wind projects.

Sununu, CEO of the Waterville Valley ski resort, has said, "The jury is still out" on climate change. Yet the average snow-covered season is 15 days shorter than 30 years ago and ice out on Lake Winnipesaukee comes eight days earlier. Last season Waterville logged fewer than half the number of skiers it did in 2010, the year Sununu took over. Sununu continues to support Donald Trump, another climate denier.

In August one of the oldest mail boats in the country ran aground in Lake Winnipesaukee because of low water. The Mount Washington cruise ship later canceled stops in Wolfeboro because of shallow waters there. Extreme events, such as this year's spring and drought, may be the new normal for the Granite State.

Please vote for Colin Van Ostern on Nov. 8 who recognizes the demands that a changing climate places on the Granite State and will lead the state in addressing them.
