Maybe you didn't see the NHMP message—that "this loophole needed closing."

(I didn't see it either, but apparently somebody did).

So were the loopholes that let those two "walk" from the most-serious charges brought against them.

(Those two especially.)

But the NHMP still announced our safest season among many seasons, and it was largely thanks to the (SL) effort to keep "the usual suspects" away from Lake Winnipesaukee's peaceful boaters.

Somehow—and in any way—that excellent record needs changing???

Will the skillful manipulations of FAX-machines overturn Lake Winnipesaukee's next safest season?
