November Letters

One Tough Cookie
My sister-in-law got a subscription to your magazine last year for Christmas. I usually read a portion of it every month. This morning I was reading an article [UpFront, Oct.] where Mrs. Bush and Mrs. Kerry gave some cookie recipes where the money raised would go to charity. A nice human interest story.
In the middle of the article was a political dig. I thought, “Why is this in here?”
I don’t feel that this dig belonged in this article, and it should have been edited out. I hate sending this, but the more I thought about it the more upset I got. Degrading an article about people trying to do something positive should not be a goal of your magazine. I hope you do better in the future.

We Forgot to “Tell”
We enjoyed your “Oktober” 2004 edition very much and will visit some of the fine German restaurants mentioned in this edition.
However, you forgot the BEST German restaurant in all of New Hampshire: The William Tell in Campton, on the road to Waterville skiing. A visit to this “William Tell” is definitely worthwhile.
Luisa Herte
P.S. Besides being a guest at this restaurant once in a while, I have no connection to the William Tell.

The Quest Must Go On
My husband and I have been enjoying your “quest” [Editor’s Note, Sept.] over the past weekends. We visited the [name withheld] monument today and wandered down the path to find the third treasure.
We’re hopeful that you have more clues and that the quest is far from over.
Ron & Carrie Hughes
Editor’s reply: Several people have completed the first leg of the New Hampshire Magazine Quest. Details and a new clue for the second phase of the quest (along with the original first clue) will be posted soon on the Web at People such as the Hughes, who finish the first part of the quest, will be given advance notice.

The Naked Truth
Regarding the nude calendar concept [UpFront, Sept.] — as a librarian, I considered this option of raising money for the library, our present budget slipping away as the months go by, but my trustees shuddered and nixed the idea. Oh well, it was fun thinking of shock waves rolling throughout town if such an idea actually caught on. You might want to do a story on the new library addition in Plainfield. This library has Maxfield Parrish memorabilia on display and for sale. Their collection is quite extensive.

Thank the Newt
I want to thank you so much for the beautiful gift basket filled with special treats that arrived at my desk yesterday. I have always enjoyed puzzles and challenges, and Spot the Newt is one of my favorites. I always enjoy reading all the New Hampshire Magazine articles and then spend more time studying the ads. I’ve learned a lot doing this and have found many good ideas!
Thanks again for the wonderful reward.
