How sad but appropriate for Professor Cracraft to be celebrating the Bolshevik Revolution

To The Daily Sun,

I didn’t know whether to laugh out loud, or cry, upon reading a letter in this past Saturday’s Daily Sun promoting an event at LRCC commemorating the 1917 Bolshevik (communist) revolution in Russia: "LRCC Professor E. Scott Cracraft will discuss the 100th Anniversary of the October Revolution in Russia on Nov, 8, 1917, when V.I. Lenin and the Bolsheviks took power.” It goes on to note that "Professor Cracraft teaches History and Social Sciences at LRCC. Russian history is one of his areas of academic interest.”

I can’t help but think that he celebrates the Russian event as a great positive and, if he was to do a presentation on the American July 4th Declaration, it would be to “enlighten” us and his students on what a sad occasion it was. I shudder at the thought of this guy “educating” our students in history and social sciences.

How lucky we are to have such talented musicians here

To The Daily Sun,

Music is alive and well in the Lakes Region. This past weekend, on Saturday night, we attended the Lakes Region Symphony Orchestra 42nd season and heard not only a Schubert Overture and Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony beautifully played by this gem of an orchestra but also guest soloist Roric Cunninigham, a high school student and co-winner of the LRSO Concerto Competition, play Tchaikovsky with incredible technique and passion. It was wonderful.

Sunday, the Unitarian Universalist Society in Laconia hosted Aniko Gedaze and Noelle Beaudin, who played an electric mix of Celtic, Quecbecois and modern fiddle and piano music. Again, it was an energizing and delightful concert of music.

Fortunately, both organizations will be offering concerts for the holiday season. The LRSO will offer its Holiday Pops Dec. 9 and 10, and UUSL will present its “Cool Yule” Concert with the Tom Robinson Trio on Dec. 17.

How lucky we are in the Lakes Region to have such talented musicians who bring music into our lives.
