We want your Shoes!
That is correct; the Lions Club is having a fund raiser for their
Camp Pride. Each pair of gently used shoes; men’s, ladies,
children’s, athletic, sandals (no high heels or winter boots) that
you donate will help the cause.
So rake those shoes out from under your bed and out of your closet
and bring them to one of the 4 collection sites, the First
Congregational Church, Globe, Jitters and Stars & Stripes Auction.
This fundraiser is only in the month of February, so you do not have
much time left to help support a summer vacation for a child with
Suncook Valley Area Lions Club

At Tops this past week we went over ten ways to be your own
Valentine, and a couple of weeks ago we made calorie free
Our Tops Best Loser of the week was Heather and our Kops Best Loser
was Pat. Congratulations to Pat on celebrating her 13 years of
being a Kops. It’s a real accomplishment when you can do that as we
all know maintaining a weight loss is not an easy thing to do, so
again we say Kudos and give yourself a huge hug for working so hard.
We talked about our upcoming events like awards dinner, bingo, and
Inspiration Workshop. We handed out awards for Royality to members
for having a weight loss during the month.
It sure is tempting this time of the year when every time you walk
into a store they have chocolate right at the door with Valentines
and now Easter candy. I think they should have all of that stuff in
the back of the store so by the time you get there you may not want
it or you just don’t want to walk all the way to the back and think
about it. Look at all the money you would save.
It sure is hard to get out there walking with all of this snow. One
of our members shared how she has lost some weight by using Walk the
Walk right in your own home.
If anyone is interestested in joining us, we meet on Tuesday nights
at the Berakah on Fairview Rd. in Pittsfield at 5:30 for weigh-in
and at 6:30 for a meeting. Any questions please call Janis White at
491-5532 or Clair Coll at 435-7271.
Well, I hope that everyone has a great week and stay warm! See you
all lighter next week!

Hello, my name is Daniel Schroth. I am a candidate for a 3-year term
on the zoning board.
I have had the honor of serving our town on the planning board and
the select board. I am trying for a trifecta.
I have also had the honor of serving with the Chamber of Commerce,
Pittsfield Historical Society, Pittsfield Youth Baseball
Association, Pittsfield Beautification Committe, and Pittsfield
Center Development Corporation on various stone projects.
Favorite color: stone grey.
Favorite saying: When the sun comes up, we go to work. When the sun
goes down, we take our rest. We dig the well from which we drink. We
farm the soil that yields our food. We share creation. Kings can do
no more. - Ancient Chinese

I would like to thank you for the privilege of serving the town, and
I would like to ask for your vote again for one of the two Planning
Board 3 year positions on the March 10 ballot. I have served on the
planning board since 2009 - 2 years as alternate, 1 year as
vice-chairman, and 3 years as chairman. This period covers the
transition from a 7-member appointed board to a 5-member elected
board. The transition has been difficult but in my opinion well
worth the effort.
During this transition, we have attempted to compare and update our
procedures with current state law to ensure compliance and to add
guidance. For a second opinion, we surveyed surrounding towns and
called on the experience of CNHRPC and legal counsel from the NHMA.
This is important since the planning board must represent and is
obligated to help all affected parties. This is quite a
responsibility and requires clear procedures with legal guidance so
that all parties understand their rights. The board members should
not rely solely on personal opinion but should understand and follow
the law to make decisions.
Of all documents, none is more important than the Zoning Ordinance.
The PB has made it a priority and has worked hard to keep it
consistent with state law and the town’s plan for prosperity. During
the last few years, the planning board has greatly improved both
voter trust and the board’s approval record for amendments (6 for 6
in 2014) by submitting fair and judicious proposals on the ballot.
I believe that this approach – representing all parties fairly,
following the law and being proactive - has set us on the right
track. I would like the opportunity to continue this effort, and I
ask for your vote.
