Letter To The Editor

Hello All at The Suncook Valley Sun!


I just wanted to tell you how important it is to me that we have a positive local newspaper. I live in Chichester, and Iím graduating from high school this year. The stereotype is that the news is always bad, but The Sun has broken that stereotype. Every time one of your papers arrives, the front is always about something awesome that local people are doing, especially youth. This definitely had an impact on the way I saw the world growing up and the way I see it today - as a place where people are making positive change, where I can make positive change, too. Thank you so much for reporting on awesome things and showing what a great place we live in!

Letter To The Editor


I went to a planning board meeting last night, (Iím still hoping Iím appointed), and itís discouraging to see the lack of public support. There were four people in the audience, one of which was Mr Debold, a selectman, and three townspeople which included myself.


I was suprised to see someone on their cell phone most of the meeting, if youíre going to go, at least pretend to pay attention.


The town is going to have some growing issues with Concord continuing to grow and moving east. We need to have the correct zoning in place before we need it, and change or improve some of our zoning laws.


Last nightís meeting, the board told one man that his business wasnít zoned for the area he wanted, but he could apply for a waiver.  Itís not the first time the board has suggested this, but, if itís an issue, letís change this.


I will say, everyone on the board, seems to want Chichester to grow.

Chichester Heritage Commission Announces Grant Award


The Chichester Heritage Commission has received a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council to present ďOn this Spot Once Stood ...Ē Remembering the Archi tectural Heritage of New Hampshire. This program, given by Maggie Stier, statewide field service representative for the NH Preservation Alliance, will take place Thursday, June 18th, Chichester Grange Hall, 54 Main Street at 7 pm.


Maggie Stierís program will showcase some of the celebrated buildings that New Hampshire has lost, and explore how and why we remember and commemorate those losses. It will draw from historical and contemporary photographs, maps, and other historical records to explore the significance of these structures and explain their eventual fate. Particular attention will be devoted to places where a build ing was memorialized in some way from simple wooden signs to a large-scale installation of architectural fragments. The audience will be challenged to think about other examples and consider the ways in which we remember what isnít there any longer.


This program is free and open to the public. There is plenty of parking. Refreshments will be served.


The New Hampshire Humanities Council nurtures the joy of learning and inspires community engagement by bringing life-enhancing ideas from the humanities to the people of New Hampshire. Learn more about the Council and its work at


For more information, contact Lucille Noel, Chichester Heritage Commission, 798-5709.
