Movie matinees continue as the Epsom Public Library shows the movie “Eye in the Sky” on Wednesday, August 24 at 1:30 PM.


Academy Award winning actress Helen Mirren plays a commander of an international mission to capture lethal terrorists in Kenya.  The mission becomes complicated when drone pilots see a young girl in the “kill zone.”  Also starring the late Alan Rickman and Academy Award nominee Barkhad Abdi, “Eye in the Sky” “holds us in a vise and keeps squeezing” (Rolling Stone). 



Abstract Painter Gretchen Warsen To Exhibit “Ladders” At Epsom Public Library


Award-winning artist Gretchen Warsen will exhibit her collection of acrylic and mixed-media abstract paintings entitled, “Ladders” at Epsom Public Library, August 20-October 1, 2016. The opening reception will be Saturday, August 20, 3-5pm; the public is cordially invited to meet the artist and enjoy light refreshments.


Over the past 2 years Gretchen has put together a body of work that has a common element: a ladder shape. Gretchen is attracted to the repeating angular pattern and the fact that a ladder is a useful tool, not only for accomplishing tasks, but for moving the eye around the painting. She feels that the ladder represents a bridge between high and low—a connection between Heaven and Earth—and fosters a change in perspective. The works on canvas/wood panel are all large-scale, colorful, multi-layered paintings which often give a sense of—and are inspired by—local landscape and nature, while the mixed-media paper pieces are smaller with ample white space and represent little worlds of imagination and wonder.


Gretchen Warsen grew up in Swanville, Maine where the weather and raw landscape made its impression on her. Gretchen graduated from Bates College as a Studio Art major, with one semester spent abroad at the Tyler School of Art in Rome. After the birth of her first daughter in 2002, Gretchen became a full-time mom, but by 2012, decided to make painting more of a priority. Gretchen lives in Westford, Massachusetts with her husband, two girls, and several pets. You can contact Gretchen via email: [email protected] or her web site:


Awards: “Foggy Morning” won best in show at the Westford Parish Center for the Arts Regional Art Event 2016, and “Snow” won honorable mention in 2015.  Her acrylic painting, “Nantucket Sails” was accepted in the first-annual juried exhibit of the Milton Art Center in 2016.


The exhibit may be viewed during regular library hours: Monday – Thursday, 10 am to 7 pm, Saturday, 9 am to 1 pm.  For more information, call 736-9920.



Letter To The Editor


My name is DAVID PALFREY.  I am a candidate for State Representative for Merrimack County District 21 representing Epsom and Pittsfield.  I am a former State Representative having represented Merrimack County District 2 for two terms from 2008 through 2012 serving on the house Commerce and Consumer Affairs Committee.


In my second term I was elected chairman of the Merrimack County House Delegation responsible for the approval of the Merrimack County budget. I am a member of the Merrimack County Republican Committee and The NH Republican State Committee.


I believe that it is the obligation of a State Representative to, first and foremost, represent the interests of the residents of the communities from which elected.  My agenda will be driven by the needs of my district as determined by being available to listen to all of the residents, their ideas, needs and concerns.


I strongly believe that it is important to work with other legislators in making New Hampshire an even better place to live, work, raise a family, operate a business, and retire.


Being a veteran of 4½ years in the U.S. Air Force, I am supportive of our veterans.  I am a member of two veteran organizations.


I ask my fellow Republican for your vote in the primary election on September 13, 2016.


David Palfrey




Letter To The Editor

“Shame on you, New Hampshire”


We are writing this letter to bring to the attention of the State of NH what seems to be the reason why the State Parks aren’t mowed and taken care of on Rt. 4 in the town of Epsom, also sides of the road are not mowed either, and also, the road itself is not fixed. The other towns are mowed and taken care of.


This State, two years ago, spent 1.2 million dollars for two welcome centers on Rt. 93, but cannot seem to have any money for the above parks and road.


What seems to the reason for this not being done, when it’s done elsewhere? Why isn’t this State taking care of this? This has been going on the past four years, that we know of.


Two very concerned, Town of Epsom Citizens
