Epsom Food Pantry


Hi Everybody.  Well, another busy week at the food Pantry.  As I have said before, meat is not easy to come by.  Shaws had a sale on hamburg this week, so I bought 60 pounds and Ken will take it to a butcher in Pittsfield who divides it up in one pound packages. So if you see a sale anywhere, call me at 219-3025 and I will get on it, pronto.


At this time I want to again thank our absolutely terrific volunteers who are the backbone of the Pantry itself. Always there, and never let us down. So, with trumpets and fireworks, let us thank June, Eva, Alice, JR, Dianna, Janet,  Joyce and Armand. And I thank the great gentleman at The Suncook Sun who puts up with me. 


Until next time,




Letter To The Editor


I just want to share with you all why I am a firm believer of shopping locally. Ten years ago I needed to buy a pickup truck with a plow. I went to a local car and truck dealer, Tim’s Truck Capital. After looking at a few, I settled on one. This truck lasted through 10 years of hard New Hampshire winters. I really got my money’s worth!


Last year during the storms from Hell, the truck died. Again I went back to Tim’s after the no pressure experience from last time. Although they didn’t have anything on hand that fulfilled my immediate need, the salesperson and the staff did everything to get me into a good workable plow truck in a reasonable amount of time. They did that and then some! I now have a truck I never thought I could own. They had a plow installed and made sure everything was working to my satisfaction. They went above and beyond what you would get in a large national dealership!


They now have a brand new service area. I recently brought my truck in to be serviced. Dealing with Ben, the service manager, I could not have been treated better anywhere! I was really impressed with the quality of workmanship.


Timmy has put together a great people-oriented staff from sales, service, and office help.


Shopping locally, you’re dealing with your neighbors and you have that personal feeling you don’t find anywhere else! It is for these reasons that I’ll continue to be a loyal customer and continue to shop locally every chance I can!

Thank you to all who participated in the Town of Epsom Holiday Gift Program. With the support and generosity of so many individuals and organizations, we were able to help many children with holiday gifts as well as needed winter clothing. It is a pleasure to be part of such a caring community. Happy New Year!

Welfare Administrator





To my constituents in Allenstown, Epsom, and Pittsfield, This week, the House approved three fast-tracked bills dealing with the opioid crisis. SB447, creating a commission to study the use of Narcan, was debated over whether a study was needed, or it would inhibit Narcan’s use. Most of the information they want to study should be available already, so I voted against it; but the bill passed 275-71.


I spoke against SB576, which is a grab bag of measures against opioids. First, I tried to divide the question, splitting out the good parts (increasing the criminal penalties for fentanyl abuse, adding two specialists to the board of medicine to provide expertise in proper opioid use) from the questionable (adding a new insurance mandate for drug treatment, requiring more training for prescribers, and authorizing spending tax money on the prescription database.) This motion failed, 106-239, as leadership insisted that the task force had vetted the entire bill and we shouldn’t worry about it. The house continued on to approve the entire omnibus, 276-69.


SB369, requiring schools to include drug and alcohol instructions in their health curriculum, was vigorously debated over whether the department of education “shall” require this, as the Senate preferred, or “should” do so, as the House education committee recommended. The house committee amendment passed, 196-150, and then the bill was approved on a voice vote. I preferred the House version, as it eliminates any concern of unfunded mandates on local school systems.


We also voted on all the remaining 2015 bills, including Dan’s HB630, which would allow restaurants to have up to 6 “video lottery” terminals (essentially, slot machines.). After a lengthy debate, it was killed, 200-129.
