Help Get Keene’s LRN.FM Back On Satellite in Africa

As you may already know, Keene is the liberty media capitol of the world. Television, radio, newsprint, youtube, blogs – we’ve got it all. One aspect of that is LRN.FM – The Liberty Radio Network. LRN.FM is a radio network of dozens of liberty-oriented shows, airing 24/7 on both the internet and via satellite, since 2009. The network feed originates from downtown Keene, New Hampshire and is listened to around-the-world. The LRN.FM “free-to-air” satellite channel is available in North and Central America and was until February of this year, available across most of Africa.

Our signal had been on satellite over Africa since 2012 as a bonus from our satellite provider, but in February of this year, they pulled the channel off-the-air. Now, we need to raise $22,000 to get the message of liberty back on satellite in Africa for the next three years.

You can help. Please visit our Indiegogo fundraiser at AFRICA.LRN.FM to learn more. Give what you can and please share the fundraising link or this video with your friends:

Hundred Nights’ 4th Annual Masquerade Ball is March 28th!

The Ball's Costume Contest Winners from Last Year

The Ball’s Costume Contest Winners from Last Year

The Hundred Nights cold weather shelter has for years provided a warm, safe place for people down-on-their luck to stay during the hundred coldest nights each year. The shelter is privately run and does an excellent job at providing resources to the area’s homeless population in an attempt to help get them back on their feet.

For the last several years, they’ve thrown a fundraising masquerade ball which I’ve enjoyed attending and sponsoring. 2015’s event is coming up in less than two weeks at the Keene Country Club, 55 West Hill Rd, on Saturday, March 28th. (Here’s a facebook event.) Doors Open at 7:30pm and the event will feature the Murphy’s Blues Band, hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction, cash bar, and plenty of dancing!

Sadly, I’ll be out of town on business that weekend, so it will be the first year I haven’t been able to make the event. Thankfully, Derrick J Freeman will be going in my stead! Tickets are just $50 per person and goes to a good cause – Hundred Nights! Call 352-5197 or drop in to Hundred Nights at 17 Lamson St to get your tickets.

Susan the Bruce Needs Help Recovering From Car Accident

Susan the Bruce

Susan the Bruce

I just donated $25 to Susan the Bruce‘s recovery fund. Despite her anger and vitriol toward the Free State Project and Free Keene, she doesn’t deserve being broadsided in her car.

Hopefully someday she’ll see the hypocrisy in her support of the state while at the same time claiming to be for peace. (She’s a board member at NH Peace Action.)

Please join with me and State Representative Cynthia Chase in stepping up to help Susan with her $10,000 fundraiser.

Excellent Video Overview of Shire Sharing 2014

In this excellent new video about Shire Sharing posted to the 101 Reasons youtube channel, several participants are interviewed from Shire Sharing and foundress Amanda Bouldin discusses the impact of the successful charity and its future.

If you’re looking for the strongest community of liberty-loving people, you need to get to New Hampshire. We’ve got an amazing community here and it just keeps getting better as more Free State Project participants move in and bring their unique talents to the market and the activism world.
