To my constituents in Allenstown, Epsom, and Pittsfield,
The House will meet after The Sun’s deadline this week, to finish
setting up committees of conference with the Senate. I went to a
briefing on the budget, explaining the differences between the
governor, House, and Senate versions. The Senate version is more
generous than the House’s, because with three more months of data
they have a better estimate of revenue over the biennium! Our Ways &
Means committee met to review revenue estimates, and they increased
their estimate, so it’s a lot closer to the Senate number. Having
more revenue gives us more flexibility in negotiating, although
final results are almost always between the two versions.
The Merrimack County Republican Committee is having an Independence
Day picnic in Bear Brook Park, July 5, 1-4 pm. Since we’re gearing
up to the presidential primary, some candidates will be there, but
speeches will be held to a minimum! I have tickets if anyone wants
to attend, although they’re also available at the door.
Interested readers can email me for my newsletter, with more details
than fit here.

Photographs By Sandra Hewson At The Epsom Public Library

sweeping vistas to intimate close-ups, with the majority reflecting
the artist’s travels in Ireland, France and the American Southwest.
Currently residing in New York state, the artist has a background in
graphic arts and continues to experiment with various mediums; an
exhibit of her of abstract paintings was hosted by the library in
May of 2012. The show runs through July 18th, and may be viewed
during regular library hours: Monday- Thurday, 10 am to 7 pm and
Saturday, 9 am to 1 pm. For more information, call 736-9920 or

Things are going well. The roads are hard, the ditches as dry as
they get this time of the year and the brooks are extremely low. The
one plant that is noticeably liking the dry ground is Poison Ivy.
The roof is on the pole barn at the Highway Department. Come and see
the progress during working hours. We have a ways to go, but we’ll
get there. Thankfully, after weeks, someone was able to get Herb
Bartlett’s boom lift running again.
We’ll be back on Goboro Road sometime after school is out. We’ll put
a sign out to let you know.
Have a great summer.

Letter To The Editor
In the days leading up to the American Revolution, Thomas Paine
wrote, “Casting off a king may at first seem strange and difficult,
but like all other steps which we have already passed over, will in
a little time become familiar and agreeable:”
In other words, you’ll get used to it!
Same holds true for Americans today.
Freedom demands that certain things be done that may “seem strange
and difficult”. but you’ll get used to them.
Abolishing the Federal Reserve Bank is right at the top of that
When the Fed was created in 1913, it was supposed to be a
It has been anything but a stabilizing factor.
Since the Fed’s creation, we have had any number of recessions,
three major depressions, i.e., the Great Depression, the Collapse of
1987, and the Great Recession of 2008. All . . . all of which were
directly caused by the Fed and its policy of credit expansion, i.e.,
increasing the money supply via the credit markets.
And another, even bigger, depression is already on the way.
The Fed’s policy of credit expansion or as the Fed now calls it,
“Money” was not created by government.
Money was created by the Market.
You don’t need “government” to have money.
Governments seize control over money, i.e., give themselves a
monopoly over money and the supply of money, primarily so they can
cheat their citizens through inflation (an increase in the supply of
money) and spend more money than it takes in.
Money is much too important to trust to the government.
The best, the fastest way to restore sound money and put an end to
the steady stream of recessions and depressions is to abolish the
