31 OUR STORY
The Weirs Times was first published in 1883 by Mathew H. Calvert. The newspaper, then named Calvert’s Weirs Times and Tourists’ Gazette, was published until Mr. Calvert’s death in 1902.
One of the most remarkable features of the publication was a map of Lake Winnipesaukee which occupied the center spread of the paper. Readers will find the same map reprinted on the center pages of this, and every issue.
The new Weirs Times was re-established in 1992 and strives to maintain the patriotic spirit of its predecessor as well as his devotion to the interests of Lake Winnipesaukee and vicinity.
Locally owned for over 19 years, this publication is devoted to printing the stories of the people and places that make New Hampshire the best place in the world to live. No, none of the daily grind news will be found in these pages, just the good stuff.
30,000 copies are distributed every week in the Lakes Region/Concord area. 15,000 delivered to

Gay Marriage Response
To The Editor: This is in response to
Jim Splaine’s letter tout- ing what he calls “Gay Marriage.” From what he says I am led to believe that Mr. Splaine is proba- bly a “Progressive” Demo- crat. Progressives believe in the legitimization of various perversions. For them, degeneracy is lim- ited to those who disagree with them and oppose their agenda. One of their tactics for getting perversions
accepted by society is to cloak the degeneracy in terms such as “civil rights” and “equality.” I for one resent being equated with a degener- ate and refuse to do so. If one carries the rubric “civil rights” to the ex- treme that Progressives do then there are very few actions that could be criticized, shunned or made illegal. Progres- sives and the left are no- torious for twisting the English language to suit themselves and fit their agenda. The have made an art of George Orwell’s
“New Speak.” Progressives and leftists
are quick to denounce those who disagree with them, often calling those who disagree with them vile and vulgar names. Progressives and the left claim to be the champi- ons of “Free Speech,” but that’s limited to speech that echoes their view- point. To them all other speech should be forbid- den. As for the legitimization
of degeneracy in NH, the perversion of marriage occurred in the dark of night with some chica-
nery when Progressive Democrats had control of the legislature and execu- tive office. It would have gone even further than it did had the legislature re- mained in their control. Unfortunately as the
issue of marriage again surfaced in NH the mon- ey that flowed into this state from various Leftist and Degeneracy Advocacy groups overwhelmed Con- cord, proving, I suppose, that money talks. It is unfortunate that
over the decades this nation has become more and more corrupt and it now seems that moral bankruptcy is racing pall- mall to catch up. I sus- pect that if things con- tinue along the lines they are going we are going to turn into a decadent Weimar Republic -- and we all know how well that worked out!
Moultonborough, NH. SB289
To The Editor: I want to take a moment
and thank the Senators, including our own Jeanie Forrester, who brought forth and supported SB 289 to ensure honest elections! This is a well thought
piece of legislation that does not make voting difficult for anyone ex- cept the person wishing to commit voter fraud. There is a very small per- centage (approximately See MAIL BOAT on 28
