Why are flotation devices banned from City of Laconia beaches?

To The Daily Sun,

I am hoping to get a reply, and or even a change to the following subject:

Why does the City Hall/Recreation Department, of the City of Laconia not allow float devices, water wings, and life jackets in the water?

We purchase stickers to let us use the beaches and lake sides.

I asked one of the attendants on my way to the Bond Beach Sunday morning, July 3. Her response was, "It gives the kids a sense of false security, as there are lifeguards on duty."

Excuse me. They use life jackets and water wings to increase their security and safety in the water, no false security. We all purchase floating devices to enjoy on the lakes, only to be told we cannot use them at the beaches.

So on this American Holiday Weekend — Fourth of July — I am asking the City of Laconia why? How can this be changed? It is all part of summer and why we live in New Hampshire.

We are the Live Free or Die state, are we not?

There is no equal to live musical theatre; get those tickets today

To The Daily Sun,

The second show at Interlakes Summer Theatre, "9 to 5 The Musical," was a rousing success. Featuring a cast of what seemed hundreds, the music and performances of the cast were first rate. That is something we have come to expect from the production team at ILST. And they never disappoint.

You still have a chance to attend quality musical theatre in the Lakes Region this summer. The current show, "9 to 5 The Musical," plays through next weekend. The final three shows of the year feature three blockbusters, the 12 time Tony Award winning "The Producers," the beautiful and serene music of "My Fair Lady," and the last show of the season is what I expect to be a foot stomping, hand clapping and dancing in the aisle type performance of "Footloose."

There is no equal to live musical theatre. These are quality shows performed by a wonderfully talented group of actors. These are shows your entire family will enjoy. Now is the time for you to introduce your children and teens to the world of musical theatre. From "Les Miserables" on Broadway, to "Footloose," at Interlakes Summer Theatre, you and your family will not be disappointed. Get those tickets today!
