Belknap County Delegation’s first allegiance is to taxpayers

To The Daily Sun,
In response to Ms. Doyle’s letter of Dec. 24, I feel compelled to illustrate the responsibilities of the Belknap County Delegation.
All members have a fiduciary responsibility to county taxpayers protecting their money from willful and profligate spending. If this requires careful examination and vetting of monetary disbursement, this falls under the heading of the delegation doing its job. Just as we balance our budget at home, the delegation must ensure that the county lives within its means. This current delegation’s first, last, and only allegiance is and shall remain with the taxpayers of Belknap County.
To inaccurately suggest that members have done otherwise is, I believe, a disservice to all of us who pay our fair share of taxes to benefit our community here in New Hampshire’s finest county.
State Rep. Peter J. Spanos
Belknap County, District 3
Finance Committee

We are lucky to have the quality care given by LRGHealthcare

To The Daily Sun,

Having been privy over the years to criticism about our local hospital, Lakes Region, I am compelled to write a second affirmative commentary on how lucky we locals are to have such quality care in our backyard.
It’s been a challenging year for me with three surgeries, two of them at Lakes. As a longstanding healthy Baby Boomer, being compromised is an awkward and frustrating dilemma with the accompanying loss of control.
Last week it became necessary for additional adjustments to my July surgery and once again I was fortunate to have the expertise of Dr. Arnold Miller. In addition, his nurse Mandy held my hand through the entire procedure. Since light sedation was medically advisable, being awake was quite stressful. Her steady pressure kept me calm. How lucky was I to have such a caring nurse who would play this singular role.
I would not have missed an opportunity for a personal shout-out to Brian, my admitting nurse, and Claire, my discharge nurse, who both showed such professionalism. But, receiving a personal note from them through the mail saying “it was a pleasure taking care of you” was above and beyond the normal course of patient discharge.
The tagline under the LRGHealthcare note card reads “care, compassion, community” – what more could any of us potential patients ever want?
Claire L. Hebert-Dow
