Epsom Public Library Touch A Truck Saturday, September 9th 10-1


Join us for this fun event for the whole family. There will be trucks, construction vehicles and community vehicles for the children to check out, “Blake’s Bounce House,” refreshments and our raffle for Lego sets and a Tonka excavator.

Epsom Public Library’s movie matinee on Wednesday, September 6 at 1:30 is “The Zookeeper’s Wife.”  In 1939 Poland, Antonia Zabinska and her husband are successfully running the Warsaw Zoo and raising their family.  When the country is invaded by the Nazis, they are forced to report to the Reich’s newly appointed zoologist.  To fight back on their own terms the couple risks everything by covertly working with the Resistance and using the zoo’s hidden tunnels and cages to save families from Nazi brutality.



Epsom Food Pantry


Well, Old Home Day is over and a good friend to the Pantry, Don Harty, was Citizen of the  Year. Congratulations.


We have had a busy week and the fresh veggies are making their way into our Pantry and we are so grateful to you all. Yes, we have plenty of canned veggies, but nothing as yummy as nice fresh squash or cukes. Thank you.


We also have received some great donations this week from Mr. and Mrs. Jon Moulton and from our old friend, Bob Hahn, and a young lady from Loudon, Hannah Walden, who placed a Nothing Can in our behalf and presented us with a can of coins.  Lovely.


Also, again our neighbor, Dollar General, brought us another donation from the store.  Thanks again.


Do not forget we are closed September 2nd, but open the following Wednesday as usual.


Until next time,

Cherylann Arvanitis Earns NAR Pricing Strategy Advisor Certification


Cherylann Arvanitis with The Arvanitis Team of Century 21 Thompson Real Estate has earned the nationally recognized Pricing Strategy Advisor (PSA) certification. The National Association of REALTORS® offers the PSA certification to REALTORS® as determining property values depends more than ever on professional expertise and competence, the best use of technology, and a commitment to approach the pricing assignment from various perspectives.


“The market demands accurate property value assessments, so NAR is excited to provide Realtors® with enhanced tools, education and expertise to determine the most accurate value for a home and give their clients a leg up when buying or selling,” said NAR President Tom Salomone, broker-owner of Real Estate II Inc. in Coral Springs, Florida.


“Pricing Strategies: Mastering the CMA” is the required one-day course for the PSA certification that provides REALTORS® with knowledge and skills to select appropriate comparables and make accurate adjustments, guide sellers and buyers through the details of comparative market analyses and the underlying pricing principles that inform them, and interact effectively with appraisers. In addition to completing the course, participants are required to view two required webinars. Once awarded the certification, REALTORS® will be equipped to guide clients through the anxieties and misperceptions they often have about home values. For more information about the PSA certification, visit www.pricingstrategyadvisor.org.





Anybody else tired of President Trump’s tweets, infantile/toddler cartoons, golf outings coverage? I believe we need to focus on the economic destruction the “Grand Ole Party” is up to.


Health care reform? Republican majorities and President Trump are focused on ‘gumming up the works’ rather than improving Affordable Health Care Act.  Do voters know the Kaiser Foundation just released a report stating the uncertainty caused by Trump Administration “far outside the norm” is leading health care insurers to increase premiums by double digits in 2018? A CNBC report calls the increases a “Trump Tax”. Quoting President Trump: “Nobody knew health care would be so complicated.” I beg your pardon, Mr President, everybody knew, but you.


Tax reform? A key provision of GOP tax reform is to completely eliminate Inheritance Tax which, over a couple decades, has been “rebranded” by Republicans as “the death tax”. Currently if you are single, die leaving an estate of 5.49 million and “one dollar(s)”, your Federal Inheritance/death tax is 40 cents. Because of “avoidance strategies” a typical billionaire’s estate is taxed around 17%. Inherited wealth is pretty much the definition of “aristocracy” according to Thomas Jefferson and Adam Smith.


Infrastructure? Public/private partnerships are the Republican goal. As governor of Indiana, now Vice President Mike Pence succeeded in establishing a public/private partnership to extend Interstate 69. Under the deal, the private sector contractor was responsible for maintaining the highway for 35 years after completion. The project is 2 years behind schedule with cost overruns. The State wanted out of the deal. They succeeded in June. It is not yet known if private contractor or taxpayers will maintain the highway.


Immigration? Go to this website to see whether or not President Trump’s grandfather or you would qualify to immigrate to America: http://time.com/4887574/trump-raise-act-immigration/
