Would Mr. Knowlton be 'moving on' if the situation were reversed?

To The Daily Sun,

Three points in response to Ken Knowlton's recent letter.

First, ask the tens of millions, repeat, tens of millions of Americans who have been enabled to buy health insurance due to ACA how it's working.

Second, if by some remote chance Hillary had won the electoral vote by the same margin as she won the popular vote, would Mr. Knowlton just check his principles at the door and "move on?" I'm skeptical.

Third, for future reference, it's Mr. Andersen to you.

Thanks for helping keep the 'Greatest Show on Snow' running

To The Daily Sun,

On Dec. 1, the Lakes Region Sled Dog Club held its 17th annual auction to raise funds for the World Championship Lakes Region Sled Dog Derby, scheduled for Feb. 10-12.

This derby holds the distinction of being the longest-running sled dog race in the world. It is with the generous support of the citizens of the Lakes Region and patrons of our auction that we are able to keep sled dog racing alive in Laconia.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who made our auction such a great event and we appreciate your help in keeping the "Greatest Show on Snow" running.
