90 MPH, Josh Spaulding, Local Celebrity News Editor, Now Falls Asleep At The Wheel.

by Anura Guruge


He is a local celebrity.

So, he is ABOVE THE LAW.

I am going to get into trouble just for pointing this out.

But, I have KIDS that share the same roads that Mr. Joshua Spaulding drives! Yes, that scares me.

That is ALL I am going to say.

I will let Mr. Joshua Spaulding’s OWN WORDS, IN PRINT, say it all.

Lets Get Josh Spaulding, The Baysider,
To The ’2014 Winter Olympics’ In Sochi, Russia.

Josh Spaulding, self portrait.

Good news. I had an e-mail from Josh this morning.

He has set up an account for this effort at TD Bank.

It is called the:
Joshua Spaulding – 2014 Olympic Fund.

You can go to any TDBank and make a deposit specifying that account name, viz. ‘Joshua Spaulding – 2014 Olympic Fund’.

Or you can mail it to:
TDBank

36 Center St.
Wolfeboro Falls 03896

Attn: Joshua Spaulding – 2014 Olympic Fund.


Josh’s publisher, Salmon Press, has also agreed to MATCH all donations (up to $5,000).

That is great.

Not sure we will need $10,000, but more the merrier for Josh.

Josh’s column above, as it appeared in yesterday’s Baysider tells it all.
All I am trying to do is make sure that Josh gets the necessary funds to make this happen.
I have already pledged a minimum of $10 (being the last of the big spenders, that I am).
Another 299 $10 pledges should be sufficient.


If you live around the Lakes Region you really should know Joshua Spaulding.

Josh, in addition to being the intrepid, indefatigable editor of ‘The Baysider’, the local weekly for Alton, Barnstead and New Durham, does double-duty as the Sports Editor for the Baysider and 6 (yes, 6) OTHER local newspapers! He covers 35 to 50 high school sports teams, ranging from skiing to football, as well as all of the local 5Ks, turkey-trots and even the NASCAR! Josh writes 7,000 to 9,000 published words a week — and that is quite a feat. Furthermore, Josh has been doing this Herculean (most likely unprecedented) ‘editor x editor x reporter‘ ‘beat’ for 10+ years WITHOUT EVER taking a week off.

How do we know that for sure? A few weeks ago, Josh, one of the most self-effacing, modest and humble people that I know (next to me, of course), let it be known, through his always extremely readable (and invariably entertaining) column that he had written 500 published columns — WITHOUT nary a single break. That is beyond impressive.

Josh, over the years, has chronicled the sporting exploits of thousands of kids — some that have gone onto find greatness. Josh has touched the lives of tens of thousands. He is one of the most obliging and helpful folks that I know. He is always trying help, make the lives of others pleasanter.

It is no secret that Josh is married to his job. His job and covering the local sports scene (and watching ‘Survivor’ among other other shows on TV (now augmented, quite recently, by a DVR)) is his LIFE. He gives us so much. I think that with his travel schedule, which makes me tired just reading about given that it covers around 8,000 sq. miles in total, he works around 70 – 80 hours a week.

Going to Sochi will be such a great thing for Josh. It will also be a great honor for us. Just think of Josh’s columns from Russia. We will learn stuff from Josh’s coverage that we will never hear from any other journalist. Josh will tell us how Survivor comes across in Serbian. Who knows. Josh might even meet a nice Russian athlete over there.

I haven’t spoken to Josh about my campaign as yet — other than pledge my (minimum of) $10.

I am sure that sponsorship opportunities abound. Yes, Josh would go to Sochi dressed like a NASCAR driver emblazoned with logos head to foot. I will also see if he will set up a bank account so that funds can be sent to it directly. Maybe he might set up a FaceBook ‘donate’ page.

But, we need to make sure that we raise a minimum of $3,000 to get Josh to Sochi.
