News for Wolfeboro, NH and Surrounding Communities

It seems that our “Commander in Chief” is out of touch with America!  The vast majority of US citizens are very concerned with homeland security related to terrorism, illegal immigration and refugees. Without transparency… President Obama opened the gates and placed Syrian refugees in many states without telling us.  Thankfully, the US Congress stepped in to tighten the screening process of refugees, with a bipartisan veto-proof vote.

Frequently, the President is not acting with due diligence to protect America, despite the will of the people.  His apathetic actions against ISIS has allowed them to not just survive, but to thrive...while he tells us they are neutralized.  WRONG!   America is at war against Islamic terrorists and we need American might to defeat them now!

At the same time President Obama has managed to grow the National Debt through roof, disrupt our health care system, increase racial tensions, polarize the political parties, fail to turn the economy around…and the list goes on and on.  Obama is amazingly narcissistic.  His speeches are frequently “I want this” or “I did that”, making matters of America about HIM.  Two of his most frequently used lines these days are “That’s not how Americans are” or “Those are not the values of Americans”.  He uses his bully pulpit to influence those who follow his every word as truth.

In reality, Obama is disconnected from the average American in many ways.  More people stand strong for the right to keep and bear arms than stand against it.  Yet, he keeps pushing to diminish our SECOND AMENDMENT rights… even in the face of increasing threats of random terrorism to the homeland.  An armed citizenry is a safer population.  And for those of you who did not know… gun violence numbers are way down from a decade or two ago…despite more guns being owned nationally.  Yes, we’ve had some tragic public shootings, and large numbers of black-on-black homicides continue in Obama’s home city of Chicago, despite the strict gun regulations there.  But those are examples of criminals, not obeying the law...the very reason that law-abiding Americans need the right to protect their families & homes.

RADIO GETS RESULTS...and WASR features AM TALK RADIO... the HOT radio format.  And since talk radio listeners are paying attention, your ad gets heard...and remembered.  

Talk Radio popularity has grown strongly, while at the same time, print readership has been in steep decline... Just look at any magazine or newspaper...its content is nothing like it used to be.  

While a website and email may be part of your marketing, they should not be your focus. The public is in internet advertising overload.  Efforts in these areas tend to have the least return on investment (in terms of both time & money).  

If your advertising budget does not currently include radio, a simple re-allocation of 20-30% of your print budget will get you started.  Readers do not even perceive these reductions in print ads...and that same money re-allocated to talk-radio can give you much greater results.

Certainly, even more radio ads can give you even more results, but getting started is the most important thing you can do to help promote your business. Start off the new year by giving yourself more chance for growth and success!  

Also...Ask yourself, "What did you do differently with your advertising  last year to make your business stand-out and help it succeed?" No matter what the answer... you need to CALL WASR!  

WASR Radio Gets Results! Here's Why You Should Advertise on WASR:  The average person listens to about 20 hours 

In our area, and for most states in America, daylight savings time ends at 2 a.m. on Sunday, November 1st.  

A few quick facts regarding DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME:  

Ben Franklin is considered to be the first person to suggest daylight savings, thinking that it would allow for a better use of daylight.  In 1918 a federal law standardized the yearly start and end of daylight savings time for the states that choose to observe it.  The dates and times of daylight savings have varied over the years.  

The Energy Policy Act of 2005 mandated an extension of it by one month starting in 2007.  

While not embraced by all, surveys show that most people enjoy having an extra hour of light in the evening for eight months of the year.  

Time will" SPRING FORWARD" to Daylight Savings Time again on Sunday, March 13th, 2016.

UPDATE:  OCTOBER 27th... It has been a remarkably vivid season this fall in the Lakes Region, but the leaves are now starting to lose their luster and the trees are starting to lose their leaves. That said, there is still plenty of foliage but it is now a bit subdued with yellows and greens dominating the color scheme -- though there are still some standout examples of oranges and a (few less) reds. The best foliage in the state is now in the seacoast region. Scenic Routes: Most any road in the Lakes Region will still provide a scenic sight right now. Try driving around any of the region’s sparkling waters for nice views. For foliage reports in other areas of NH click on the NH FOLIAGE REPORT link on the website (above).
