Jamboree a huge success; thanks!

To The Daily Sun,

I would like to thank everyone involved with helping to make the third annual Unified Basketball Jamboree a huge success once again this year. The day was filled with joy, laughter, dance parties, crazy 3s and the biggest smiles.

This couldn't have been done without the help and support of our local businesses and sponsors: Bank of NH Pavilion, Brookside Pizza of Belmont, Catherine Contigiani, Dairy Queen of Laconia, Gilford Cinema 8, Lakes Region Coca-Cola, Piche's Print Shop, Sal's Pizza Laconia, Sottak Orthopaedic & Surgical, Smitty's Tilton Cinema Pub and the New Hampshire Fisher Cats.

Thank you to everybody who came out and supported our local unified basketball teams and helped raise money for the Special Olympics of New Hampshire.

Cassandra Contigiani

Planned Parenthood funds should be used to help women become mothers

To The Daily Sun,
The Jan. 10 edition of The Laconia Daily Sun had an article about New Hampshire's U.S. Senators Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan visiting the Planned Parenthood Clinic in Exeter. Though this clinic doesn't offer abortions, it is part of the larger organization that does perform them.

The senators said their goal is to protect funding for Planned Parenthood. That funding would be in part helping to murder living babies. If Planned Parenthood planned for a woman to become a parent rather than helping her to kill the infant, it might be acceptable. Planned Parenthood in Concord, Manchester, and at other sites in New Hampshire does perform the life-ending act of abortion.

I would urge all women to save your child, not murder him or her. Abortion kills. Life is precious.

Harry Mitchell
