To The Daily Sun,
Something very serious and troubling happened last week that needs to be shared with your readers. A man called my home phone. Normally this would not warrant a letter to the editor. But it seems that someone has an "ax to grind" and has targeted me with his angry rants. This person asked for me by name and referred to the letters I write to the editor of The Laconia Daily Sun. Then this person proceeded to use very vulgar, obscene and profane language directed toward me.
After much thought, I decided that this needs to be addressed and taken very seriously. As a follow-up, my husband visited the Laconia Police Department to file a police report concerning this particular caller. We are now monitoring our incoming phone calls. I also contacted our phone company provider to let them know I received a threatening, abusive phone call.
This country affords us the right of free speech under the United States Constitution. Our Constitution is what separates this country from dictatorships where the media and its citizens are completely controlled.
I want to take this opportunity to thank Ed Engler - president, Adam Hirshan - publisher and Ginger Kozlowski - managing editor of The Laconia Daily Sun for taking the time to meet with me and allow me to share my concerns about this incident. This letter is a result of their advice to me.
