Shoveling Sand
By Theodore Sares

It takes a while for a newcomer, particularly one accustomed to daily dog-eat-dog business dealings with the Corporados, to adjust to a small town. I was no exception, but a few years back while finding my way sometimes burning some bridges, most of which I have since earnestly tried to repair and while serving on the budget committee, the people voted down the Town's proposed budget along with several warrant articles. The school budget barely passed and several related warrant articles were rejected. Right there and then, I fell in love with the town Conway, NH, for I knew the people here tend to do the right thing when they have had enough and act as one.

My continuing affinity for Conway was affirmed this past July 15 when this paper's headline proclaimed, "Public opinion prompts Audubon to reconsider Dahl property lodge." Occasional triumphs work wonders on the soul and it's truly amazing what can be accomplished when the people rise up. The very same thing may happen with respect to the plans to put more signs up on the scenic West Side Road. Already, many residents are smoldering and it won't take much to start a fire. "Share the Road" indeed.
