To the editor:Donald Trump has just announced his idea for a solar wall with Mexico like it was the sole child of his wonderful imagination. The Conway Daily Sun has printed my campaign ads and letters over a year ago promoting a solar wall with Mexico. At the Lincoln Day Dinner, I proposed a solar wall in front of other Republican candidates, including Sen. Kelly Ayotte and Gov. I promoted the solar wall proposal on radio and TV. Finally, I filled out an internet form during the proposal period to build a wall and make it a solar wall.

A basic question that should underlie any discussion about health care is: What is the responsibility of society to help those in need? It is not a matter of if we cover health care costs, but it is a matter of how we cover them. Many people blame Obamacare for our rising health-care costs, but a critical look at the data shows that health-care costs have been rising for decades. The current proposals being considered in Washington do not really reform health care. We have an economic and societal responsibility for everyone to have access to a health-care system with universal coverage and effective cost controls.

In this case the prayers were being answered through a United States Department of Agriculture program that helps low-income homeowners with crucial, health-related repairs. Tri-County CAP officials told Daniels that Comeau was having some serious problems with her furnace. So, Daniels visited Comeau and eventually she got one of those $7,500 grants. “But I saw there was a lot more that needed to be done than just a new furnace,” Daniels said. So, she got help from Eversource, Tri-County CAP, Sherwin-Williams Paints and the New Hampshire Departments of Energy and Environmental Services.

Toxic algae that caused the death of two dogs in Elmira and landed an Ithaca resident in the hospital with double pneumonia last summer is back and more widespread than ever, according to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. Blooming in Seneca Lake, this toxic algae, deadly to animals and harmful to humans, can cause vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, allergic reactions or difficulty breathing. Andrew Zepp ’85, executive director of the Finger Lakes Land Trust — which Zepp himself created while earning a MPS degree from Cornell — worries Cayuga Lake will be the next to be infected. But because it is difficult to distinguish these toxic algae from non-harmful algae, the DEC is warning residents against going near any bodies of water with algal blooms of any kind. Composed of scientists and policy makers, the team will “address Finger Lakes water quality issues,” a group statement read.

CONCORD — Concord police were able to locate a woman on Friday morning who had escaped a sheriff's cruiser in Laconia on Thursday afternoon. Tamara Ipock, 35, was found in a tent in a homeless camp in Concord, less than 24 hours after she had gone missing. Because Ipock had been known to live previously in Concord, the tip was shared with police in that city. Perkins said that Ipock was known to Concord police, and that the information about the vehicle she got away in helped narrow their search. One of those places was the homeless camp where Ipock was found at around 11 a.m. on Friday.

By Miranda PiedraKrystina Vizard (left) and Lexi Poirier look on as Quinn Marnich (left zip liner) and father Eric Marnich reach the end of the second zip line, Attitash Aerial Zip. (REBEKAH BLIZZARD PHOTO)BARTLETT — Recently, I was given the opportunity to test out the longest zip line in New Hampshire. Last Thursday, members of the local media were invited to do the Ziptour at Attitash Mountain Resort before it opened for daily summer operations last Saturday. Joe Boccia, now in his third year of working with the zip line, taught us the motions of stopping, braking and how to keep going. There's the Alpine Slide, a chute down the mountain; Mountain Coaster, a roller coaster ride through the beautiful forest; and chairlift rides, perfect for anyone who wants to relax rather than get that adrenaline boost.

Recently, a Wolfeboro woman was charged with two misdemeanor counts of animal neglect. Investigators believe that there were 84 Great Danes from Wolfeboro and Bartlett that were kept in filthy conditions, not properly treated for disease and fed infested food. In New Hampshire, a dog owner suspected of animal neglect is automatically charged with a misdemeanor for a first offense.
