I am somewhat surprised at the reaction from some this week that some of the recent posts are not "local" news. No need to quote Tip O'Neill, but it all trickles ( sometimes its a deluge) down to the local level.
Do these issue have an impact on NH and even little Moultonboro? Of course they do.
Some local groups and organizations also routinely request a posting about a special event or other function. Always glad to do it. Somethings I just find interesting and personal and will write about it such as the nonsense about " death panels" and " death chats."
A selectmen violating the sanctity of the non-public session is for sure a local issue. It is a learning experience for all elected officials especially if you read the parting comment from the departing selectman that he really was not aware of the law. How is that even possible? I am still surprised to see and hear elected officials that are completely unprepared for meetings and ignorant of the RSA's.
Despite the naysayers, the town is in really good shape. We are fortunate to have so many good volunteers and committed and responsive employees.
In the end, I choose to write about things I choose to write about. Period.
