I told you so; I'm now two for two on prophecies; not bad!

To The Daily Sun,

After much prayer, this is my response to the closing of the unholy grail of the lakes: "The Lord is not slack concerning his promises as some men count slackness, but is long-suffering to usward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come repentance."

And so I take no pleasure in the loss of the Kennedys' business. I do take pleasure in the fact that the Almighty counts me worthy to be used by him. For 2 1/2 years I kept saying, "please, take down that cross, or you will be judged." I said, "Thus saith the Lord, repent."

I say thank you to Brother John Demakowski of Franklin a true prophet of God, Sister Debbie Davis of Concord, all the others who believed the bishop's message.

To my Lord's enemies and mine, I won't call them out. They know who they are! I told you so. Two for two prophecies, Chief Canfield, now the unholy Grail. Not bad!

2 Chronicles 20:20b, "Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be establish; believe his prophets. So shall ye prosper." Amos 3:7, "Surely the Lord will do nothing, but he reveal his secrets unto his servants the prophets."

Bishop Paul W. Blake

We will not be bullied into ending our support for the WOW Trail

To The Daily Sun,

Our family business is proud to have signed on as the presenting sponsor of the WOW Sweepstakes Ball this year. It's a fun event for a great cause and we're very happy to support it. However, it was disappointing to receive the following e-mail message last week:

"Please understand that I live in South Down Shores and most of South Down and Long Bay are opposed to the WOW Trail coming through South Down/Long Bay. Given the fact that you do work in this community, I will notify the community —through our community newsletter — of your support for the trail and recommend that no residents use your services. Equally important, I will notify the building committees of each community of your support as permits are submitted for approval."

Needless to say, we were shocked. We have been a Gilford-based, family-owned and operated business for 23 years and have done little business in South Down and Long Bay, so this threat will not affect us financially. That said, we are aware that some of our fellow WOW Trail sponsors have also received similar threats and so, as the lead sponsor of this year's event, we feel the need to respond publicly.

The proposed WOW Trail is to be built on the state land South Down Shores and Long Bay was built around. It is absolutely unacceptable for them to threaten the livelihood of the local businesses who support the trail. This type of behavior is simply unacceptable.

And while it may have been the intent of these South Down/Long Bay residents to bully us into relinquishing our support of the WOW Trail, it has in fact strengthened our resolve for this project and we want to make this year's WOW Sweepstakes Ball the most successful yet! We invite you to join us in support of this great community cause and remind folks that the best way to respond to these kind of threats is by standing strong.

On Sat., May 20 at Gunstock we are having a party to support the WOW trail. We are expecting an awesome crowd for dinner, dancing and lots of laughter. Please join us. Get your tickets through Bank of N.H. Pavilion online (www.banknhpavilion.com) or Patrick's Pub in person. There will be a silent and live auction done by the one and only Jesse Thompson. Also, a chance to win the $10,000 grand prize just for buying your ticket. Or, if you'd rather just send the WOW Trail a donation, their address is P.O. Box 6832, Laconia, N.H. 03246.

Let's go!

Jerry Milligan, President
