13 areas of Lower Bay Road need fixing before the onset of Winter

To The Daily Sun,

An open letter to the Sanbornton Department of Public Works and the N.H. Department of Transportation:

I've taken the time to list 13 areas of Lower Bay Road that need immediate attention for pot hole repair prior to the winter months. September is here and the road condition is terrible. This is also a safety hazard since many cars drive in the middle of the road to avoid the road damage. If I was a home owner in these areas the noise must be terrible from cars and trucks hitting them. Vehicle damage is very likely in the months to follow with snow, ice, and frost heaves. Our fuel delivery man said he travels 5-10 mph in spots.

The problem areas are: 29 Lower Bay, 203-211 Lower Bay terrible area, 100 Lower Bay (B&B on a curve), 229 Lower Bay, 106 Lower Bay, 305 Lower Bay (on a hill), 136 Lower Bay, 465 Lower Bay, 183 Lower Bay, Dr True Road through 564-569-580 Lower Bay (just terrible).

I urge all residents of the area to contact the town for just repairs before winter. Thank-you for my time. A truck load of tar won't break the bank.

Democrats have hands in the cookie jar just as deep as GOP's

To The Daily Sun,

Bernadette Loesch on Friday asked what are we going to do about all the differing funding sources supporting candidates running for office and, I suppose, funding political parties by extension? My suggestion would be for people to stop voting for professional politicians.

She's is wrong about the Supreme Court being wrong about their freedom of speech decision because nowhere in our Constitution is that freedom restricted to any group, party, organization, or person. Aside from laws against slander or hate speech people are free to say as they will, organize as they choose and support whom they like. Besides just who does Bernadette desire to make that decision on who can or can't spend money on an election? Bet your bottom dollar it wouldn't be on a bunch of conservatives so why should we conservatives consider allowing such decision be ruled by liberals even if it wasn't unconstitutional?

I have the uneasy feeling Bernadette is supporting another liberal dream of shutting off the rights of non-liberals much like the administration did by having the IRS do three years ago, before the last election. Sounds to me as though she only wants funding to be unrestricted to Democrats, and speaking of such, where does she think they get their billions'? It's not all from grass-roots working people. It's from unions that are big businesses in themselves, multimillionaires, billionaires, and trillionairs that Obama goes golfing with. What? You thought he was out with the boyz from the hood?

No sir, you Democrats have your hands just as deeply in the cookie jar as any Republican so climb down of that white horse and put your own house in order.

Sen. Forrester got my vote on Tues.; please give her yours in Nov.

To The Daily Sun,
I have found state Sen. Jeanie Forrester to be very open and responsive to all questions and the concerns of her constituents, and never hesitant to express her views. I like her approach and the way she has represented Senate District 2 and would be very happy to see her re-elected in November.

She got my vote please give her yours.

Shaheen & Shea Porter refuse to release corresondence with IRS

To The Daily Sun,

At the behest of liberal career politicians like Sen. Jeanne Shaheen and Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter, Lois Lerner and the IRS deliberately targeted conservative groups. However, now that they have been caught red-handed, in our nation's Capital, the IRS is stalling and destroying information.

In New Hampshire, Sen. Shaheen and Congresswoman Shea-Porter, who are hiding behind their exemption to FOIA requests, have ignored multiple pleas from Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire to release all correspondence between their offices and the IRS.

Transparency is paramount in a well-functioning republic. Sadly though, for the same reason Shaheen and Shea-Porter will not hold town hall meetings with their constituents, they refuse to release their correspondence with the IRS. That's wrong, and New Hampshire deserves better.
