Gilford Officer Named K9 Handler of the Year

GILFORD — The Working Dog Foundation held its annual dinner last week in Portsmouth to recognize the hard work of the Police K9 teams that receive their training and certification through the program. Every year the Foundation, through its committee, chooses a K9 team that has gone above and beyond for their efforts while training and their performance while on duty.

This year's recipient of that award was Gilford Police K9 Officer Adam Vansteensburg and his K9 partner IKE. This is Vansteensburgs second year as a K9 handler and he trains with some very skilled and experienced teams from around the State of New Hampshire as well as Maine.

The Gilford Police Department is both proud and excited for the award and feels that it is a true representation of our K9 team.

Local Authors will be at Book Signing at Innisfree

MEREDITH — Innisfree Bookshop at the Mill Falls Marketplace in Meredith is pleased to be hosting a local author signing event. Lisa Olech and K.D. Mason will be appearing on Saturday May 3,  from 2-4 p.m. All are welcome to attend and meet the authors.

A lifelong runner and sailor, K.D. Mason lives on the New Hampshire seacoast with his wife of over 40 years and two cats. Retired from a lifetime of working in the restaurant business, he now weaves compelling tales of mystery, romance and suspense set on the NH Seacoast. Years of sailing in the Caribbean and New England as well as hanging out with an active running community have given him a wealth of story ideas. This summer, audio versions will become available starting with Harbor Ice.

Living and working in the Lakes Region, Lisa Olech is one of our own. Her debut novel is Picture Me Naked. This author/artist loves writing fun and steamy contemporary and historical romance. She believes in ghosts, silver linings, and the power of a man in a tuxedo. Picture Me Naked is the first in her five-book Stoddard School of Art series.
