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
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 $5000/day
to $250/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.

receive once a month training on all the latest techniques and
products such as cuts, colors and perms. As a full service salon,
Mary also provides manicures, pedicures and acrylic nails; and

that went out in The Suncook Valley Sun last week, she had to stay
open past closing time last Saturday to accommodate all.
“I really appreciate all the great new
customers I’ve gotten,” Mary says, “keep it coming!” Mary is excited
at her new position as shop owner and says it’s been a dream of hers
for some time. Mary is always there to greet customers with her
