Good Morning everyone. Wow, what a busy week. What with food
deliveries and the day at elections (glad that is over with, now to
the next one), we have been busy.
Our donations have been very appreciated. Some folks want us not to
mention names, so we thank you and to our good friends, the
Werner sisters, who remember us monthly and to Nancy and Phil
Yeaton, many many thanks for your generous donation.
I chatted with Ken this morning and he
suggested that you folks who want Thanksgiving Baskets need to sign
up on your next visit to the Pantry. I will let you know the
deadline date as soon as I get it.
I do want to thank all the people who have
given us veggies from their gardens and to all who have given us
eggs and milk, you are the BEST.
Until next time,
To my constituents in Allenstown, Epsom,
and Pittsfield, Thank you for your votes in the primary election. Of
course, with no opposition, it was just a gesture of support, but
Iím glad to have it.
Iíve decided to run for Speaker of the
House for the next session. Our current speaker has been very
divisive, ever since he won the election with most of the
Republicans voting against him Ė but all the Democrats voting for
him. The Republicans in the House have spent these two years
fighting among themselves, with the more conservative and/or
libertarian representatives split from the speakerís leadership
team. The Speaker and his majority leader have proposed amendments
to the party platform, removing all the detailed positions that he
fails to support (such as pro-life, opposed to taxes and fees, and
with the legislature retaining its position relative to the other
branches of government.) Even more important, in this primary, the
speaker and his PAC to elect House Republicans, has campaigned
against incumbent representatives who donít support the Speaker. In
contested primaries across the state, this PAC sent out mailers
supporting some incumbents in a district, or even the challengers to
incumbent Republicans. In Epsom and Pittsfield, his mailer urged
votes for John Klose and David Palfrey, but not the incumbent
Michael Brewster. Thatís unacceptable to me: if the speaker wishes
to do something like that as an individual, itís his prerogative,
but fundraising for ďa Republican HouseĒ PAC and then using those
funds to oppose some House Republicans is simply wrong.
Interested readers can email me for my
newsletter, with more details than fit here.

Awana Clubs at Epsom Bible Church will
begin our 2016-2017 season on Thursday night September 15th. This
will be our 30th year of having Awana Clubs and we are thankful for
the things God has accomplished through this program in previous
For those of you who may not be familiar,
Epsom Bible Awana Clubs are a branch of Awana International which
started in the early 1950ís in a Chicago church and has grown into a
worldwide program teaching boys and girls the Word of God in unique
ways. Awana Clubs offered at Epsom Bible include Cubbies for girls
and boys ages 3 and 4, Sparks for girls and boys in school grades
K-2, as well as Truth and Training for girls and boys in grades 3
Each Awana night consists of a game time,
handbook time, and council time. Once or twice a month we plan a
special theme night. We try to make our clubs as fun and exciting as
possible. During Council time one of our leaders or a special guest
speaker presents a message from the Bible, and awards are presented
to those clubbers who have earned them for completing handbook work.
Our Clubs are open to all children in the Epsom area, and we would
love to have your children attend. You do not need to be a member
of, or attend, Epsom Bible Church, for your children to attend. Come

and 6:30 PM. Club starts at 6:30 and we end the evening at 8:00.
