Pelham: Support Knowles
Please join us in voting to re-elect John and Mary Ann Knowles as State Representatives. We have known John and Mary Ann for more than 10 years and are proud to call them friends, and extremely proud to have them represent Pelham in Concord. We have found them to be thoughtful and concerned legislators, voting with – and for – their constituents. Unlike many in the political arena, they have no personal agenda and work tirelessly on our behalf. They have a record of solid accomplishments...ch

Paul and Ann Dadak - Pelham What’s In a Name?
What’s in a name? Apparently, a lot. In the last General Election (2008), Rep. Valerie Hardy got 1,257 votes in
Litchfield, where she resides. She garnered 2,084 votes in Pelham, where she is virtually unknown—apparently connected by name with our good Sheriff Jim Hardy. I suspect a connection was also made to the venerable Hardy family known to generations of Hudson residents. Make no mistake, voters of our district (Hillsborough 27: Hudson,
Litchfield, Pelham). Rep. Hardy is just as ultra-liberal as the Knowles duo. Just a heads-up.
Nicholas D’Alleva - Litchfield Please Make a Difference and Vote!
Our constitution is a wonderful document that was written with checks and balances built in to protect our personal liberties and freedom. Knowing this, I have always felt comfortable being an independent voter and choosing the candidate that I thought was best suited for the job—with no regards given to party affiliation. But no more! After this past election cycle, I believe many of our elected officials have abused their positions to push agendas through that; (1) were strictly along party lines, (2) were directly beneficial to their campaign contributors, (3) were not supported by a majority of the people, (4) were not in the best interests of the people, (5) used forms of illegal coercion and bribery, and most importantly, (6) were unconstitutional.
I read a Letter to the Editor recently … it said that this election was being nationalized—and that the results of local, state, and national races will be either a repudiation or approbation of Obama’s policies and agenda. I agree—which is why this will be the first time in my life that I will vote upon party lines.
Our local and state elections are just as important as the federal elections. Whether you like the direction we are heading in, or if you would like to return to the principles of our founding fathers … please let your voice be heard and vote!
Ken Eyring - Windham Consider the Associates of the Candidate
I am a Democratic candidate for the House of Representatives, 4th District. A few weeks ago, Corey R. Lewandowski, state director of Americans for Prosperity (AFP) – New Hampshire Chapter and a Windham resident, drew attention to a “pledge” they had mailed to all candidates for public office. The “pledge” is a re-do of the late Governor Meldrin Thompson’s pledge of no taxes 40 years ago. Mr. Lewandowski noted that 30 percent of the candidates had signed the pledge and urged others to sign it. I didn’t and won’t. I didn’t sign the pledge – not because I am against keeping taxes
as low as possible and state government budgets balanced – but because the AFP is an “astroturf” organization started and funded by billionaire David Koch and a board member of Koch Industries. Koch Industries operate oil refineries in Alaska, Texas, and Minnesota, and control some four thousand miles of pipeline and other consumer brands. Forbes ranks it as the second-largest private company in the country. The Kochs have funded the Tea Party movement from the shadows. Like their father before them who was an early member of the John Birch Society, the Kochs are against anything that will impede their progress to make more money or keep their fortunes. These include lower taxes; maintaining the Bush-era tax cuts for the wealthiest two percent (e.g., the wealthy elite), less government services for the

needy, the elderly, and children; less government oversight of the banking industry; and the denial of climate change global warming. As Libertarians, the Koch brothers have supported in the past ending social security, minimum-wage laws, gun control, minimal regulation of all markets, and all personal and corporate income taxes. The AFP has opposed healthcare reform, stimulus spending to
save and create jobs, and cap-and-trade legislation that would make industries pay for the air pollution they create. Perhaps my Windham and Salem neighbors might want to examine not why someone like myself, Democrat Carolyn Webber, or others didn’t sign this pledge, but rather why Republicans Charlie McMahon, Donna Mauro, Walter Kolodziej, Mary Griffin, Marlinda Garcia, D.J. Bettencourt, and Gary Azarian signed a pledge from a radical fridge group like the AFP. Did healthcare and prescription drugs suddenly become more affordable for New Hampshire residents? Wasn’t stimulus spending received by Windham and Salem schools and businesses? Isn’t acid rain polluting our lakes and ponds? Before you vote on November 2, don’t just consider a candidate’s political association, consider the associates of the candidate. Using the famous quote from W. Clement Stone, “Be careful the friends you choose, for you will become like them.”
Neil Fallon - Windham Marilinda Garcia for State Representative
It was an honor and privilege to serve as your State Representative from 2006-2008, and I am proud of my exemplary record from that term. I was subsequently re-elected in a special election at the end of the 2009 session. My campaign was open and straightforward—I made no secret of my position on the issues and of the fact that I was concurrently enrolled in graduate school at Harvard. I promised to vote according to what I had campaigned upon and to serve my district to the best of my ability for the remainder of the term, and that is exactly what I did. I loaded up my fall semester schedule with as many classes as it was possible to take, so as to have the most flexibility in the spring semester and January to June legislative session to schedule around Wednesday house session days and Tues/Thurs morning committee meetings. Since I was not elected until the end of 2009, I was not in attendance that year. However, during 2010, I was an active presence in my legislative committee and town committee, I co-sponsored and testified for important legislation, I supported causes on behalf of various organizations that are important to our state, I served as mentor and public role model for young women, I volunteered as a special advocate for abused and neglected children, I was a vocal advocate for our state and for conservative values on the national level, and I made it a point to stay in close contact with my constituents and respond to their questions and concerns. Unfortunately, some representatives in the current legislature had no qualms about wasting the time of the collective House membership on hours of debate over pointless resolutions, such as HCR27, “Urging that the United Kingdom return the Parthenon (Elgin) marbles to Greece” and thus delaying other votes until well into the evening or the next day, at which times I occasionally had study sessions, presentations, or exams scheduled. Fortunately, as relates to the upcoming 2010-2012 term, I am now graduated and recently employed, with a flexible schedule, at an office two streets away from the State House in Concord. For this, I am grateful and excited.
After talking to constituents about their struggles with finding employment, being able to afford their homes, securing services for their family members with special needs, starting a business, and getting the best education for their children, I am looking forward to supporting legislative initiatives that will help meet their needs and develop the NH economy.
have consulted with businessmen, entrepreneurs, social service providers, and educators across the district, state, and country, and am always happy to talk with anyone about any issue. At the same time, I promise to continue to be a strong advocate for limited government, fiscal discipline, low taxes, traditional family values,

Chalk about Deer
Learning as much as possible about white-tailed deer will enable you to hunt better and smarter. Wayne Fears, the Deer Hunter’s Pocket Reference, available at www.pro
toolindustries. net/fears, is full of information about deer. What You Can Learn about a Buck Deer: Although you can’t determine a buck’s age by his antlers, you can follow some general rules to approximate his age. Small and narrow racks generally indicate a young deer, while wider and taller racks usually imply an older deer. The number of points a deer has on his rack may not represent the length of time the deer has lived. From studies done at Auburn University in Auburn, AL, scientists have learned that generally, the availability of highly nutritious food plays a larger role in antler development than any other factor. How Deer Eat: Deer browse, and when feeding, a mature deer breaks off twigs and branches and chops its food with its 24 grinding teeth. A deer chews its food only briefly before passing the food to its rumen, a storage compartment. Within 1½ days after the deer chews the food, this waste will have passed from the deer’s body. Which Deer Make Scrapes: Although most hunters believe only dominant bucks make scrapes, wildlife biologists have found indications that does also make scrapes sometimes, and this behavior isn’t limited to breeding season. The more scientists study the scraping behavior of deer, the more they realize how little they understand the social behavior of whitetails. Charlie Chalk can be reached at email@example.com
