Brewtopia was a huge success and has definitely become one of the “Big Events” of the year! It was clearly evident that this was a night for the community to come together and have fun.

All this would not have been possible without the help of our generous sponsors so a big “thank you” goes out to Burgess Biomass, Aerial Site Communications, Nordic Construction, Berlin City Dealership, Chapman Container, P & L Auto Parts, Great North Woods Container Service, Maureen’s Boutique, ReMax, Pete’s Auto Body & Seventh Street Graphics. Your continuous support is greatly appreciated. White Mountain Distributors had an awesome selection of beverages on hand and PLAN B rocked the Chalet! We couldn’t have done it without you guys…thanks!

The guest column titled Karmic National Debt by Frank LaFerriere is without a doubt one of the most insulting and gross misrepresentations of America that I have ever read in your paper. A column written with such hate and vitriol one would expect to see it in a North Korean or Jihadi newspaper. One can only assume that the karma Mr. LaFerriere is talking about- is that the innocent people killed and maimed in Boston by Muslim terrorists deserved it, because of what Mr. LaFerriere perceives that America has done to the rest of the world. Mr. LaFerriere is entitled to his insensitive, outrageous, callous opinion, but he would be better off as leading critic of America outside of the United States of America- maybe as party member in Cuba, North Korea or a Imam of the Taliban in Pakistan as his attitude about America is more in tune with theirs. I am optimistically looking forward to less drivel to appearing in Berlin Daily Sun in the future. May your Karma catch up with you Mr. LaFerriere, you reap what you sow.

This letter concerns Wednesday, April 17th's edition of the Berlin Daily Sun. In particular it is addressed to Jean LeBlanc, sports writer. Jean, what went through your mind when you wrote about the girl's softball team? In your article you mentioned two young ladies by name who are part of the Mountaineers team. It is bad enough they never play, yet are part of the team, without being degraded by your pen in the paper. These girls are a part of a team not to be mentioned by you as roaming Community Field's green pastures where the Mountaineers make their home. They have feelings. We as a community should support their efforts. Perhaps it was a slip of the pin or another quite simple explanation which I hope you address in their paper as soon as possible.
