To the editor
I serve as the medical director for both the New Hampshire Veteran's Home and the Peabody Home (a charity nursing home in Franklin). I also make house calls, do home hospice, and serve a large number of former state school residents. I live on Elbow Pond Road. I leave for work very early in order to meet the needs of the facility clients I serve.
It is important to reopen the Elbow Pond Road bridge as soon as possible in order to allow me alternate access in case bad weather closes Old College Road.
I see the note from Mr. Bardsley and Mr Prokosch (both of whom I greatly respect). In response to their question re emergency; a storm just closed Elbow Pond Road. I hope we can use that as a warning to act before a crisis occurs.
