Boars Gone Wild
Lorraine Cloutier and Bert Smith both residents of Cash Street found their lawns rooted up from wild boar. Muriel and Steve Brock of Barton Road also reported the creatures in their backyard. Also on Thursday evening, a group of the wild boar was on Route 10 near Spectacle Pond. In addition to the sightings and damage in Croydon Village, Brenda McGuire of Brighton Lane reported she saw two wild boars and a black bear. The black bear was on Brenda?s porch. The boars also tore up a lawn in Newport on Route 10.

The wild boar is a Prussian Wild Boar and not a native of NH. They were brought here from the Black Forest in Germany for Corbin Park. In years past, fire and tricksters cutting holes in the fence, have left the wild boar free to roam in the Croydon area. The boar population is NH is unknown.

Tom Howard wants to thank all the residents of Sullivan County who voted for him in District 2. If you do not believe me, drive by Serenity Carpets and you will see the sign he has in front saying "Thanks for your support" Arthur Jillette (D) of Goshen is asking
for a recount on the vote.

I don't know about anyone else, but I had two different visits from people driving out of state cars on election day from Barack Obama workers asking if I was going to vote.
Tammy Howard reported that on election day, one of the workers who was holding up a sign was in the wrong district. She informed them that they were in the wrong place and they informed her that they were dropped off there and being paid for it. So much for civil duty.
