The other twist is the comments made by New Hampshire Rep. Stella Tremblay of Auburn. She believes the U.S. government could have contrived the bombing and the FBI could be part of a cover up. She also questioned the injuries of one of the victims.

How does Rep. Tremblay represent her district with absurd comments like that? How was someone like her elected to office?

Never forget that we are at war with the Islamic terrorists of the world.

A park to honor patriots

To the editor:

We, the Friends of Patriots Memorial Park, are thankful that so many came to help get the park ready for summer — Boy Scout Troop 82, the North Andover Garden Club and neighbors. We also wish to thank the Barker Farm for donating the 10 yards of mulch we spread on May 4.

This is a historic park, part of Tavern Acres National Register Historic District, designed by Olmsted Brothers Landscape Architects, and given to the town by the Stevens family in 1922 as a site for the World War I monument and a park in “honor of the men and women who ... have rendered the State or Nation patriotic service of either a civic or military nature.”

The World War II monument and Korean and Vietnam memorials are now here also. Further, we intend to place a granite marker to name the park, explain its history and honor Lt. Col. Harold Dushame, who gave so much time and effort to the park.
