This year is the 90th Anniversary of Motorcycle Week in New Hampshire. Motorcycling is more popular than ever…and with it comes the thunder of thousands of bikes and activities of all kinds, especially in and around the Lakes Region.

The week is full of events including the Biker Build-Off / Motorcycle Displays & Demos / Charity Rides and Group Rides / Band Concerts and Music / Fireworks at the Weirs on Wednesday / and of course, the Races!

Americans all across the country will be celebrating and observing the real reason for the holiday weekend on Monday…to honor those who gave their life and those who served our country in the military to make our freedom possible. Be sure to thank all veterans you see.
In the United States this weekend is also the unofficial start of summer, with lots of seasonal businesses opening and lots of people on the road to be with family for beach going and barbecues. Be safe.

Citizen’s trust of Washington is falling fast. In the last few weeks, with increased media scrutiny, it has become more apparent that President Obama’s lack of leadership and focus on governing has put the country into a position of not just expanded debt, but expanded corruption and an increased distrust of Washington.
Amidst the Obama Administration’s growing scandals of Benghazi, IRS, AP Record-Confiscation and more… the President resumed his lack of dealing with the country’s important problems, and left Washington Friday to visit a kindergarten. The President’s unwillingness to diligently deal with important matters, in favor of his ongoing campaigning, hurts America every day.
Having placed layers of bureaucracy between government agencies and himself, President Obama continues to use plausible deniability in the scandals that are now apparent in government under his administration. While the President certainly cannot personally oversee all the Fed’s agencies, departments and branches…a good president would certainly instill and insist on high values, expectations, and exude leadership! Why hasn’t this happened? President Obama was elected with only community-organizer and junior-senator skills, and so Americans are now seeing what little they get from voting in a president with no leadership experience.
Over the next few weeks, months and years, it will likely become apparent that the President has lied to the American public about having government transparency from his administration.
America is still the greatest country on earth! As its citizens, we need to come together and stand behind the values our forefathers founded this country on. Going forward, we need to hold government officials (at any level) to higher standards. If they break the law or fail in their jobs, they need to face losing their job, forfeit all benefits for life, and jail them when appropriate.
Despite the current scandals, there is nothing linking President Obama directly to any illegal activity, so nobody should be jumping to conclusions. Let independent non-political investigations lead us to the truth. Once we have that information, we should support or punish government personnel appropriately, as unified citizens.

The entire staff of WASR is saddened by the passing of Alan Severy, original owner of WASR.
Alan Wayne Severy passed away at the age of 68 on Friday, April 26, 2013, in Ellsworth, Maine. Alan was born September 12, 1944, in Laconia, New Hampshire, to Merle and Theresa (Bookholz) Severy. He grew up in South Tamworth, New Hampshire, and graduated from Conway High School. After high school, Alan attended Boston University and the University of New Hampshire at Durham. While at Durham, he helped establish the school’s radio broadcasting station. After college, Alan served in the United States Navy for four years. Following his naval service, he returned to radio in 1970 and, with Sharon Severy, established WASR radio in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire. Dedicated to his work, Alan owned and operated WASR radio with Sharon for over 30 years. During his career in radio, Al won many awards for excellence in news broadcasting and was recognized as the New Hampshire Associated Press “Broadcaster of the Year.” In 2004, Alan and Sharon sold WASR to the current owners and Alan partially retired to Maine. Alan is survived by one brother and three sisters in the Washington D.C. area and two brothers and one sister in Maine.
Donations in remembrance may be made to any no-kill animal shelter.
Now is this time to visit one of NH Fish & Games FISH HATCHERIES. Holding tanks are full, but they won’t be for long. Fish are now being distributed to New Hampshire’s rivers, streams and lakes for anglers. Transferring the stocks while the water is still cold makes it less stressful on the fish.
A visit to one of NH’s hatcheries is exciting! You can see tens-of-thousands of fish (mostly trout and salmon) from hatchlings to some over two-feet in length…and learn about how they are hatched and reared. Hatcheries are open year-round 8am to 4pm. Guided tours are available by reservation and are staffed by a dedicated, hardworking group of professionals who not only understand the technical challenges of raising fish... they also love to go fishing!
Fish hatcheries in this area… Something fun to do…close to home!
Powder Mill Hatchery - New Durham, 288 Merrymeeting Road, 859-2041
