Letter To The Editor


Regarding the letter about gun propaganda and President Barack Hussein Obama, I believe that it is necessary to point out that she may not recall Operation Fast and Furious. The following internet link should be helpful:


The same Mexican drug cartel that has these guns, which include .50 caliber sniper rifles, is everywhere in the United States, including ours. Federal prosecutors in New Hampshire are currently preparing to try three men linked to a notorious Mexican drug cartel on charges of conspiring to distribute 1,000 kilograms of cocaine in a case that spans the globe. Prosecutors say they are members of the notorious Sinaloa drug cartel based in Mexico. Zazueta Valenzuela fought extradition but is scheduled to appear in U.S. District Court in Concord for the first time after being flown from Spain over the weekend. See, I’d rather have the hunters with guns than the Mexican drug cartels who are without consciences and kill men, women, and children on both sides of the border, including when they murdered a true hero Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, with guns from Operation Fast and Furious. But that’s me.

Art Exhibit At The Oscar Foss Memorial

Amasepiachan Art Works September 28th – November 2nd

Barnstead OFML.jpg

Amaranthia Sepia Gittens-Jones known as “AmaSepiaChan,” is a 14 year old artist. She has recently studied with acclaimed artist Ian Torney and teacher Sylvia Brofos of Kimball Art School, Concord, NH. Amaranthia is now on full scholarship at Kimball Jenkins. On Friday April 22, 2011 she was recognized as the best artist in her school. She was featured in the Concord Monitor’s education column titled Profiles in Positive on Saturday April 30, 2011. So far Amaranthia has donated 100% proceeds from her art to several charitable causes.  Amaranthia would like to attend college for Graphic Arts focusing on comic books and inking. She wants to do “big things with her art” as well as to give back to those in need. Recently she designed an iPad presentation titled, “Do You Know Who I Am?” to combat bullying. This presentation along with a variety of other works can be viewed at the Oscar Foss Memorial Library. She is also creating two Manga series and is busy developing characters for them daily. Amaranthia’s work is influenced by earlier years spent in Tokyo, Japan. One day Amaranthia hopes to create a foundation so young artists like herself can have their work shown.

Letter To The Editor


Dear Editor,

It has been recently reported that 93% of FDA personnel were deemed non-essential. That breaks down to 9 out of 10 employees. How much money does this mostly non-essential department control?


An online article reported that the 2012 FDA budget was going to stay the same at $2.5 billion dollars. This year, in a press release, the FDA said that it requested $4.7 billion dollars to ensure the safety of food and medical devices. That is not quite double last year’s budget.


And now, the $4.7 billion dollar question; in this bad economy, with millions of Americans financially suffering, why would this government fund a department that is almost wholly non-essential?  An additional question could be, is it possible for a private company to do a better job, for much less money? If we care about those paying taxes, should we at least explore some of the answers to these questions?


We need to make much wiser decisions in how our immense, yearly tax burden is spent. Maybe, just maybe, we could decrease taxation, which would effectively give everyone a pay raise. If the government really doesn’t need so much, then they don’t need to take and spend so much. I know- call me radical!


Respectfully submitted,

Don Walker
