I have served Sanbornton with respect for the past & attention to the present

To The Daily Sun,

I would again like to ask for Sanbornton voters' support at the election on March 10 for another term as selectman.

I have served as selectman for the past four years with a respect for the past, attention to the present and a vision for the future.

Over this time, I have attended many workshops/programs provided by Primex (our liability insurance) and available to all town employees and officials. These training sessions have helped me to be reminded of the laws that govern our actions, the liability and costs associated with not following them and a much deeper appreciation for the need for all town residents to be informed and educated with facts.

I look forward to serving you for the next three years with the knowledge of the past, the facts of the present and a plan for the future. My plan for the future would include looking at alternative income sources to reduce taxes to our property owners, a plan for seamless transition into an elected position with in-house support and materials and continued respect and support of our dedicated employees.

I hope to see you at the polls. Yes, your vote does make a difference

Watch the tape & you'll agree it's time to make changes in Alton

To The Daily Sun,

After I read an op-ed piece in the Union Leader written by publisher Joe McQuaid referencing the conduct of our Alton elected officials at a February selectmen's meeting, I am speaking out.

In watching the video clip of the public input session by Alton resident, Jeffrey Clay, I was appalled and embarrassed at the manner in which the selectmen handled the situation. Mr. Clay had every right to speak his piece, regardless of whether you liked his remarks or not. Cooler heads should have prevailed in letting Mr. Clay have the floor for the allotted five minutes. To have called on the Alton police to arrest Mr. Clay was more outrageous than anything Mr. Clay said. Grow a thicker skin or get out of the game!

It is time to make some changes to this board at next week's election. I'll be voting for Phil Whittmann and hope others will as well.

Standards are tougher but Golden View remains a 5-Star nursing home

To The Daily Sun,

Starting in February, the government will implement changes to the 5-star rating system used to rank skilled nursing centers. Specifically, there is a change in how the staffing component is weighted, the cut points for each star level on the Quality Measure component have been rescaled, and two new Quality Measures for antipsychotic use have been added.

These changes will result in several area nursing centers receiving a lower rating. However, Golden View Health Care Center is proud to announce that it will remain a 5-star rated facility, which is the highest rating. As always, our staff will continue to strive for excellence while caring for seniors of the Lakes Region and beyond.

I would like to invite members of the community to stop by Golden View any time to see our two new assisted living options, The Terrace and The Cottage, and to enjoy our free monthly community event series sponsored by the Bank of New Hampshire. Information about our daily events and activities can be found at www.GoldenView.org, and additional information about the 5-star rating system changes can be found on the Nursing Home Compare website at www.medicare.gov/nursinghomecompare.

Laughable that Obama dediced that terrorists aren't really Muslims

To The Daily Sun,

My goodness, it takes The Daily Sun more than two weeks to print a letter I sent in on Feb. 7 and James Veverka replies the next day. I am impressed but have to ask, is he sitting on the editor's lap?

Oh well, back to JV. Jim says he didn't say this or that exactly but still he makes a big deal out of his assertion that secularists were major players in the anti-slavery movement. Okay James, name some. Wonder just which history books he might find them in? I suspect the got them right out of thin air but hey, I could be wrong, so let's here it Jim?
Readers might want to recall that all this the results of many of we conservatives being critical of Obama's failure to call Islamic terrorism just that. James, L.J. Siden and the usual suspects go on Christian-bashing campaigns all the time to try to distract people from the president's pro-Muslim stances. They have to reach back deep into history to come up with their moral equivalency.

So why not debate the modern problems? Doesn't fit with their narrative? Doesn't give Obama enough cover? Well, both of those really. No matter how many Christians ISIS beheads or people get burned alive, stoned to death, girls sold into sexual slavery, boys buried alive, none of that matters because Obama favors Islam over every other religion or culture. And so the boys on the left are working overtime to give him cover, change the focus, spread smears and slanders trying to discredit we conservatives but as they say facts are stubborn things they just stay there and stay there.

It's laughable that the president and his gang have decided that the terrorists are not really Muslim. Islam is a religion of peace after all. It's not like they have been attacking, killing and enslaving as long back as their religion goes. Except they have. Christians have evolved in the past few hundred years, but not Islam. They still violate women, treat them like subjects, kill gays for being gay and still today refuse to evolve from their 11th century roots. And by the way who the heck does Obama think he is to decide who is or isn't a true Muslim?

So boys, you can keep up the smoke screens, call names, deny facts, try to discredit critics but I'm going to keep on exposing you for the phonies you are.
