The Epsom Public Library hosts Children’s Author, Julia Walsh on Monday, June 26th at 6:30pm. Please join us for a wonderful presentation and book signing. Julia’s beautiful book, Wings in the Wind tells the story of young Julie and her explorations along the banks of the Merrimack River where she quietly observes the ducks through the tall sea grass. Books may be preordered for this event at the circulation desk. Call the library at 736-9920 for more information.


On Wednesday, June 28 the Epsom Public Library will be showing the film, “Witness for the Prosecution” at 1:30 PM.   When a glamorous socialite is murdered in her home, all evidence points to her young lover.  As the scandalous case goes to trial, the prosecutor finds that the case may be his undoing.  The Daily Telegraph UK calls this film “a dark, perfectly contemporary morality tale” set in 1920s London.





To my constituents in Allenstown, Epsom, and Pittsfield,
This week, the only legislative activity is in the committees of conference. There are over 100 bills signed by the governor, and another 120 on their way. Most have gotten no publicity at all: many deservedly, since they name bridges and buildings, or create or modify study committees. Here’s a few of the ones that may be interesting or important to you.


HB 108 allows towns to convert paper records to electronic form for retention. HB 194 permits employers to pay bi-weekly without needing permission from the state. HB 349 requires any court-ordered removal of a child from its home give specific, written report of the basis for this decision. HB 355 requires every adult in a prospective adoptive or foster home get a complete criminal records check. HB 437 specifically authorizes local police to issue accident reports to those involved, not requiring a trip to the DMV. HB 366 updates the requirements for outdoor wood-fired heaters. HB 433 authorizes firefighter decals on multiuse license plates.


HB 460 allows a local official in a non-public meeting to object to it being non-public, and being overruled, have his objection noted in the minutes. HB 552 requires the secretary of state to check non-deliverable letters sent to people who voted with only affidavits for identity, citizenship, and domicile against public records, including the interstate voter database, and turn any suspicious cases over to the attorney general for investigation.


SB 27 repeals the maximum height requirement for motorcycle handlebars. SB 30 defines woodland buffer and waterfront buffer for calculating plant coverage for shoreland protection. SB 110 declares the painted turtle to be the reptile of the biennium. SB 234 removes used syringes from the controlled drug act and authorizes needle exchange programs.


Representative Carol McGuire
