The Epsom Public Library will be showing the movie “The Water Diviner” on Tuesday, October 6 at 6:30 PM.  Starring Russell Crowe, the film tells the story of an Australian farmer’s life-changing  journey as he searches for his three missing sons who had fought against the Turks in the bloody battle of Gallipoli in 1919. This movie is rated R for its war violence.  For more information, call the library at 736-9920.

To my constituents in Allenstown, Epsom, and Pittsfield,

I’ve submitted eight bills for next year, with only one my own idea: the others were requests of constituents or colleagues. My idea was some minor fixes to the administrative rules procedure – clarifying what documents are “produced for” an agency, and allowing a board to respond to a petition for rulemaking after their next meeting, rather than immediately.


Allenstown selectmen requested I submit three bills: one, allowing towns to contract with another town or organization to provide their cemeteries; two, clarifying electronic record retention; and three, reducing the penalties for violators of their wastewater rules. They wanted the fine cut from from $10,000/ day down to $1,000 per day, since that would allow them to negotiate with the violator and correct the situation without having to go to Superior Court. It also allows them to explicitly recover costs, which is more appropriate than a fine.


Another constituent requested a property tax exemption for standby generators, which can be life savers for seniors or people with medical equipment. Epsom, but not all towns, includes the value of the generator in the property assessment.


Two other bills deal with professional licensing: the speech-language pathologists asked me to clarify the statute on allowable titles for speech-language aides in school, as there is some conflict; occupational therapists want to change their board to delete a physician and add another member, since they can’t find a doctor who wants to be on their board.


Finally, the state building code review board asked to update some of the building codes. The current versions of some them are more flexible for renovations, which is a major point of contention with the current codes.


Interested readers can email me for my newsletter, with more details than fit here.
