The movie scheduled at the Library for Wednesday, October 3 at 1:30 is “Tully”.  The film tells the story of Marlo, played by Academy Award winner Charlize Theron, a mother of three who is gifted of a nanny by her brother. Uncomfortable to accept the gift at first, she forms a unique bond with the thoughtful, unpredictable young nanny Tully played by Mackenzie Davis.  “Time Out” says ‘Charlize is hilarious” in this new comedy.


Betsy Bosiak will be teaching a basket class at the library on Saturday, October 13 at 9:00.  The cost of the class is $10 and sign-up is required as class size is limited.  The sign-up sheet is at the front desk as is a sample of the fall basket.

The dinner/show begins at 6 pm and includes appetizers, beverages, salad, rolls,  turkey, roast beef, vegetables and homemade dessert.  The show is directed by Elizabeth Lent and features all local talent! Cost is $25.00 per person or a table of 6 for $125.00. Call Vickie 736-4707 for reservations or for more info. Plan to join us for a fun night of great food and entertainment.

Recently, ammunition has been exploding in the garbage bunker at the BCEP facility. This is a VERY DANGEROUS situation for employees and patrons alike.

In Support of Annie Kuster


I recently heard a state rep tell a voter (who was on the way in to vote) that she (state rep) had never heard anyone say a good thing about Congresswoman Annie Kuster.  Nothing could be further from the truth!


I support Annie Kuster for reelection wholeheartedly. She has supported and advocated for veterans to improve delays in disability compensation and authored the bill that made it happen.  Did you know that her father was a WWII POW? My husband and I are two vets who appreciate her support and work on our behalf.


She has been working diligently since 2015 and helped secure billions of dollars to fight the opioid epidemic. She will continue that fight to make sure NH gets its share of resources. As an ED nurse who worked in Concord Hospital when I retired from the Air Force and a retired Nurse Practitioner who had a DEA license and the responsibility to prescribe addictive drugs, I know how important and difficult this crisis is.  As a patient who had back surgery in 2003 and was astounded at the number of Vicodin I was sent home with (90), and as the sister of a 52-year-old who died as the result of a combination of prescribed opiates and severe emphysema that reduced her respiratory drive, I am grateful for legislators like Annie. It is going to take a lot of time, effort, and money to improve this problem; I know she’ll be on the job for us. 


She has also worked hard to build apprenticeships and job training programs, so our citizens can compete for jobs that today’s companies need to fill. I can’t think of anyone else I would rather have in Washington DC representing NH.  She has our back and she will have my vote for sure.

Letter To The Editor

September 20, 2018


This is the year of the “Rodent,” if you didn’t know that already by checking out the 10,000 squirrels that are dead on the roads.  We need to do an extra good job of rodent control this fall!


We have been very lucky with just missing the bad weather most of the year so far!


The main grading is done with some touch up this fall to follow.  We have a little more paving to do.


This year has gone very well!


Bless you,

Gordon Ellis

Alfred “Fred” Winzer, Jr.

Epsom Winzer 2.jpg

EPSOM – Alfred “Fred” Winzer, Jr. of Epsom, formerly of Connecticut, passed away unexpectedly on Monday September 10, 2018 at his residence.


Born on March 28, 1966 in Bridgeport, CT, he was the son of Patricia (Halitsky) Winzer and the late Alfred Winzer, Sr.


Fred worked for himself for as an electrician for many years and loved the act of restoration. His home was his space for tinkering and imagining for the future. His passion for the outdoors burned inside of him and he was happiest fishing, tending his vegetable gardens, and taking his beloved dogs, Dempsey and Blu, on hikes or down to the river. When he wanted a break from his quiet life he did so through visits to Europe, road trips across the U.S. and always looked for that new spot to explore.


He was especially happy if a concert was waiting for him at the end of a long flight and traveled to see many of his favorite bands, saving all his ticket stubs along the way, as a way of honoring the musicians he enjoyed jamming out too. A prankster at heart, his jokes and shenanigans have left us with countless memories overflowing with laughter and love.


He is survived by his mother Patricia Winzer of Milford, CT; his brothers, Joseph Winzer and his wife Allyson of Orange, CT and Timothy Winzer of Milford, CT; his partner Jeanne Mauri of Epsom, his step daughter, Steph Camerone of Lincoln, NE, his nephews Jack and Cooper Winzer as well as many other family members.


There are no calling hours. A service in Connecticut will be held at the convenience of his family. The Still Oaks Funeral & Memorial Home is assisting the family with arrangements. To share a memory or offer a condolence, please visit www.stilloaks.com
