To The Daily Sun,
On behalf of the Laconia School District, I would like to thank the following Lakes Region businesses again for the third year who donated items to go into welcome bags for new Laconia School District professional staff. These businesses include: All My Life Jewelers, Stafford Oil Company, Whittemore's Florist, The Studio, Bank of New Hampshire, Franklin Savings Bank, Polished and Proper Barbershop, U-Frame We Frame, Labelle's Shoe Repair, Mr. Paul's Hair Affair, MC Cycle and Sport, SunDays Salon and Spa, The Insurance Outlet, Belknap Independent Business Alliance, and Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce.
Sue Bullerwell from All My Life Jewelers and Karmen Gifford from Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce deserve special thanks for organizing this again this year and making it so successful. Many of our new teachers are new to the Lakes Region and we felt it would be helpful to introduce them to local merchants and services that are available in the area. These teachers are very excited about all the goodies they received. This is a great example of community partnerships with local merchants and the School District. Thanks again!

As co-owners of a new consignment shop featuring local crafts and vintage items, we want to thank the staff, board members and especially our loan officer, Ken Wilson for assisting us in obtaining financing for our new store located at 24 Mount Major Hwy. in Alton Bay. We would encourage anyone thinking about starting a small business in Belknap County to give the BEDC a call. Thanks again for all of your help and sharing your expertise!

In recent days we have all read or heard of stories about whites being killed by blacks. Three black teens shot and killed a 20 something white Australian jogger for the fun of it as they were bored! Two black teens beat up and killed an 88 year old WW II Veteran in Spokane, Wash. in his car while they robbed him. And a black 17-year-old is going on trial for shooting a 13-month-old baby in the face because his mother would not give him money when he demanded it. And these are just the FEW that have been in the national headlines in recent weeks.
So where is Mr. Sharpton, Mr. Jackson and Mr. Obama to highlight these atrocities? They all got very vocal over the Martin-Zimmerman case when it involved a black kid being killed by a white man! Do you think these men all condone the black juveniles killing white people as acceptable or nothing to be concerned about? Can you tell me how any one is more or less worthy of their attention than any other? None of these men have uttered a single word about any of these black on white killings and that worries me.
Why do you think these three influential black men pick and choose which racial killings they talk about and which ones they ignore?

To The Daily Sun,
Former Senator Scott Brown thinks that you're the problem if you are a conservative. Brown argued on Fox News (http://video.foxnews.com/v/2625540265001/the-state-of-the-republican-party/) that Republicans should cut more deals with Democrats in Washington and shouldn't fight so much for conservative policies.
Handed a rare opportunity to fill in for Bill O'Reilly on Fox News on August 23, Scott Brown chose to throw away that platform opportunity over fighting Obama and liberals. Instead, Brown criticized conservatives and the tea party. The same tea party who helped elect Scott Brown to the U.S. Senate in Massachusetts in a special election in early 2010. The same tea party he abandoned while in office.
Brown camouflaged his attack as a call for GOP unity. Yet Brown identified only conservatives as the cause of all the problems. Brown can't see why moderate campaigns like Romney and McCain keep failing.
Brown repeated the myth that Ronald Reagan couldn't win the support of conservatives and the tea party today. What a joke! Reagan was a tea party leader before there was a tea party. Establishment moderates fought to block Reagan at every turn, now they want to claim Reagan as their own.
Brown assumed that voters want Republicans to pass more Democrat legislation and don't want policy contrasts or debates over policy. This assumes that more and more legislation is what America needs.
He endorsed New Jersey's Chris Christie as a "good conservative" and said Christie ought to be a "darling" to Republican conservatives. Brown called for a "Big Tent" (the insider's plan to make the party more liberal). Brown's monologue appears to have been written for him by Karl Rove. Brown sees his role as supporting Rove in the orderly elimination of conservative policies.
Brown, flirting a run for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire or for president, claims a home in Rye, but his chosen residence ("domicile") and voting location — Massachusetts. Brown might play games and pretend that he is a Granite Stater — just like numerous out-of-state Democrat campaign staffers and students did in 2012. This smells like Hillary's carpetbag move in New York for her Senate seat. Birds of a feather?
