No Fret Cooking


Marilynn Carter will be at the Epsom Public Library on October 5, 2016, at 7:00 p.m. to acquaint us with her cookbook for healthy eating, “No Fret Cooking”. This book has over 200 recipes for all eating styles - - recipes with whole wheat and alternative flours, ancient and modern grains, gluten-free recipes, vegetarian dishes, dairy-free recipes, medicinal support, and simple and fancy dishes. She will make a power point presentation with a simple demonstration. She will bring samples for tasting!


The cookbook includes two CDs, “Music to Cook By” and “Music to Dine By.” The music is composed and performed by her husband, Steve Carter, a former Berklee College of Music teacher. Music to Cook By is upbeat, making people smile and have fun, and “Music to Dine By” is more mellow and is a hit at dinner and cocktail parties.


Come and meet Marilynn and Steve Carter and learn about traditional and alternative ingredients and use them to make attractive, flavorful, and healthy eating.



Representative Carol McGuire To Run For Speaker Of The House


Representative Carol McGuire, a four term member of the New Hampshire House of Representatives from Epsom, today declared her intention to run for Speaker of the House this fall.


“During the past two years, Republicans in the House were splintered, spending most of their time fighting amongst themselves,” said McGuire. “My goal is to unify the party and administer a smooth running House to accomplish our goals.  There were too many instances, from school choice to our response to the opioid crisis, where Republicans fought among themselves over details while losing sight of the bigger picture,” she added.


Representative William Ohm (R-Nashua), a supporter and co-chair of the influential House Republican Alliance, said, “Carol has been extremely effective in the House, whether it be while working as a member of the majority or minority party.  She works well with people of all political persuasions and as Speaker of the House, I expect her to engage with all representatives by using her wide range of expertise and experience.”


Representative McGuire, a retired engineer, represents the towns of Allenstown, Epsom and Pittsfield in Merrimack County District 29.  She currently serves as the chair of the Joint Legislative Committee to Administrative Rules (JLCAR), and has served three terms on the Executive Departments & Administration Committee, including one term as the chair. She is also co-chair of the conservative House Republican Alliance.



Letter To The Editor


Friday, September 16, the manipulative Donald Trump admitted President Obama was born in United States. This, after six years of knowingly and willingly peddling the “birther conspiracy,” in order to delegitimize our twice elected President of the United States of America. .


Did anyone else feel the need to regurgitate? Or was it just me?

“The Road Not Taken” At The Epsom Public Library


The Road Not Taken is an art exhibit inspired by the poetry of Robert Frost and conceived by Derry artists Corinne Dodge, Judy Krassowski and Ingeborg Seaboyer for the grand re-opening of the Derry Public Library, Derry NH, in September 2011. After a few months’ residence at the Derry site, the artists decided to look for other New Hampshire venues for the exhibit - other “roads” for it to travel. The art collection is currently touring public libraries, community and university venues throughout southeastern New Hampshire, and has received requests to bring the show to Massachusetts and Vermont.  For more information on the exhibit and artists visit the newly launched website


The artwork viewed in The Road Not Taken includes both new works inspired by the words of Robert Frost and some older pieces that provide vivid and connective imagery for his anthology of poems. Planning for this exhibit afforded the three artists the opportunity to revisit Frost’s work, reading and rereading, to match just the right words to its appropriate visual. Many of the poems resurfaced with the familiarity and comfort of old friends; others, more unfamiliar or obscure, presented their own intrigue and challenges. The artists chose one poem to be interpreted with their individual styles as the lead works for the exhibit. Each subsequent work is accompanied by a selected verse with artist’s notes, explaining the process or personal perspective that the artist applied to that particular piece.


The exhibit is scheduled for display during a one to two month period at each venue, and can be seen at the Epsom Library in Epsom NH from October 8 to November 19, 2016. Stop by and view the works inspired by America’s most famous unofficial poet laureate, Robert Frost. Enjoy the comfort of an old friend, or introduce yourself to his view on neighbors, survival and nature. It’s worth checking out.  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 603 736-9681, visit, or the exhibit website listed above.





To my constituents in Allenstown, Epsom, and Pittsfield, This week, I worked recounting two primary races. As expected, there was no change in results; as long as the voters can fill in the circles, the machines do a great job of tallying the votes. Changes are usually due to human error: crossing out a mistaken vote, not filling in the circle, arithmetic mistakes, and misplacing a stack of ballots. These races had no major errors, so the results didn’t change.


The Legislative Youth Advisory Council is being formed for the next session, and interested individuals can contact me for more information. Members must be 15-22 years of age, and serve for two years. This council advises the legislature on issues of concern to youth, “such as education, employment, strategies to increase youth participation in local and state government, safe environments for youth, substance abuse, emotional and physical health, foster care, poverty, homelessness, and youth access to state and local services.” That’s a direct quote from the authorizing law, and I’m impressed they can do all that in six meetings a year.


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

Rug Braiding Featured Artist At Deerfield Fair


Rita Jane Davis will be the featured artist for her rug braiding craft at the Deerfield Fair this coming weekend, Thursday through Sunday. She will have a collection of her rugs on display with examples of the styles, fashions, and designs of the past 40 years.


Rita has been teaching an showing her rugs at the Deerfield Fair for more than 30 years, receiving many awards for her masterful work.


Don’t miss this exhibit in the craft building that all will enjoy, especially her Old Man of the Mountain rug. She has learned that many New Hampshire men would help their mothers and grandmothers make the rugs that she now mends and replaces the characteristic black borders that are worn out.
