There were 16 responses to this week’s Tele-Talk question: “What advice do you have for the graduating class of 2016?”

To the class of 16, all unsolicited advice is is usually wrong, my advice is don’t listen to any of it, including this!

Protect your town’s precious water resources and push for local control so your community will enjoy accessible clean water for generations to come. The future of this valley is in your hands and water is life!

Travel!

Live life, work hard, play harder.

Go to be educated not indoctrinated. Think for yourselves and do the research then make up your own minds. Good luck!

Truly find your talents. You can look at the type of personality you have, that is best four your chosen career path, by seeking help from places like www.16personalities.com, reading books like “What Color is Your Parachute.” Don’t be afraid to be an entrepreneur, seeking help from the SBA, or Score, or strategically work with several successful business people. Aside from school and college, you can learn a lot on the Web alone. From www.toofamousquotes.com by the founder of the world’s biggest Catholic TV net: “Your plans, your projects, your dreams always have to be bigger than you, so God has room to operate ... get good ideas, extravagant ideas. Nothing is to much for the Lord to do.” — Mother Angelica

You are owed nothing.

Everything you’ve been taught is a lie.

Save your money.

Enjoy your life.

My advice for the graduates is to get out of this town. There are no jobs, and they will tax you to death. Their best bet would to go where there are the jobs, not just retail. Julie from Conway.

Start thinking right now about whether you want to make a lot of money or live in a friendly, close-knit community, because you can’t have both. The tightest communities are those where money is tight, too. Where money is abundant so is greed, and it’s every faction for itself. Just look at Conway.

My response would be in this fallen world, seek the Truth and do your best. This is Jim from Glen.

This is J.J. from Conway. When you get a job, the less you do, the less you do the less you get blamed for. But then you’re going to get blamed for not doing anything.

The only one thing that I have to say is the best advice to people graduating from Kennett High School to have is whatever you do, do not vote for any of the Democrats. You need to get out and do an honest day’s work. We don’t need the government taking care of you. It’s time some of you young kids get off your lazy you-know-whats and earn an honest day’s pay. Just because your parents are deadbeats doesn’t mean you need to be.

Never lose that twinkle in your eye. Never dismiss the beauty of a butterfly. And when you’re down and out, just belt out a loud version Kumbaya; that’ll put you right on the right track. And take a close look at your grandmother who walks with a cane, at your grandfather who can hardly hear. That’s going to be you in the future. It’ll be coming sooner than you ever imagine.

Don’t take any wooden nickels.  If you break anything, don’t get hurt.

Tele-Talk Response: Are you happy with the school calendar, or would you like to see school start in August and let out soon after Memorial Day?

There were five responses to this week’s Tele-Talk question: “Are you happy with the school calendar, or would you like to see school start in August and let out soon after Memorial Day?”

I think the calendar year for the students seems to be OK from my point of view but it is shame that the kids have to get out on the road so early in the morning to catch the school buses. After all they’re just small children sometimes.

I believe that the school should start earlier and get out earlier. Look at Fryeburg Academy. Their seniors have already graduated. I think it would be a good idea. I’m in Conway.

I am happy with the school calendar the way it is. Kids need to go to school 180 days. Just deal with it. Why have them go in August when it’s hot?

It really doesn’t make any difference because you people have turned this is valley into a bunch of people who don’t wanna work and just wanna suck off the system.

Since the teachers are the bread and butter winners — not the students — the only criteria should be what is most comfortable for teachers. It’s the teachers who deserve the consideration as to when summer break starts and summer breaks ends — nobody else.

Shorten the school year by 10 days.  Classes can start aftah Labor Day and finish in May.  This will $ave the taxpayah$ money and make the kiddie$ happy.

Tele-Talk response: Is Airbnb a blessing or a curse to tourism-driven economies like the Mount Washington Valley’s?

There were four responses to this week’s Tele-Talk question: “Is Airbnb a blessing or a curse to tourism-driven economies like the Mount Washington Valley’s?”

Nearly everyone screams about living in a capitalistic nation and never a socialist one, but then are quick to whine and complain when capitalism is practiced by successful competitors. Airbnb is proving a successful business. If their competitors don’t like it, then they need to work harder and better or get out of the business altogether. Individuals who complain about products made in China and not America should remember that they have chosen this capitalistic system, and if they don’t like it then they must stop patronizing local and distant box stores or move. This is capitalism at its purest; competition and monopoly both. Like it or leave it. And if your business is based purely on tourism, you know all the pitfalls, of which there are many. Madison.

Honestly? The Mount Washington Valley is a little nervous about some of these people opening their houses up for let people come in and stay in them to save a little money?Maybe they can put it towards the taxes that they can’t afford? You people have just going over the edge. You control everybody here in the Valley. Just step back, please because most of the property in the valley here isn’t owned by locals; it’s owned by people from out of town that don’t care about us anyway.

What are you asking me for?  I don’t know and I don’t care.

The curse is tourism itself.
