Our brethren

Jesus said, “What you do unto the least of my brethren, you do unto me.” Immigrants in the caravans are the least of His brethren. Jesus and other religious leaders would welcome them with open arms. Our president wants to welcome them with a different type of arms, mainly bullets and ...

Trick or treaters

Oct. 31 was Halloween and, as usual, inundated with all sorts little creatures running around. I just want to say that every child – young ones who could barely navigate the stairs as well as the older kids, yes teenagers too – all were polite and all said thank you. Some of the little ones ...

The seasons are changing

Fall in New Hampshire isn’t like it was years before. Extreme temperature changes are occurring in the Granite State from more than 80 degrees one week to below 40 degrees the next. And although you may be excited that summer lasts longer, these extreme temperature changes are nothing to ...

Political signs

Today, while stopped at the traffic light at Route 111A and Main Dunstable Road, I noticed New Hampshire DOT workers walking the exit ramp removing political ground signs. I thought, we are spending taxpayer dollars to remove these signs; is there something wrong with this picture? I checked ...

Another take on the 14th Amendment

“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside” is the first sentence of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. No one can know how “all,” “naturalized” and ...

It will look like chaos

Looking at the outcome of the election, I see mixed results for President Donald Trump and the Republicans. They were probably never going to hold the majority in Congress. History was not on their side for that. They gained important seats in the Senate. That’s where we confirm supreme court ...

Levesque declares victory

On Tuesday, New Hampshire state Senate Democratic candidate Melanie Levesque declared victory over Republican incumbent Kevin Avard and issued the following statement: “I’m incredibly honored to have earned the trust of New Hampshire voters and the opportunity to represent them in the ...

Move forward

I want to congratulate all the voters in Bedford who participated in the election on Nov. 6, despite the terrible weather. Whether your candidate won or lost is secondary to the fact that our democratic process worked to provide a peaceful transition of power at all levels of our government. We ...

Thank you

My thanks go out to all the people of Mont Vernon who participated in any way in the recent election of the New Hampshire State Representatives. My successful campaign could not have been possible without your help, not only by going to the polls, but by helping Donna, Kat and me out be ...

Trump encourages the white supremacists

I did not vote for Donald Trump after he came up with his delusional campaign promise to deport 11 million “illegal” immigrants, comparing this with the Nazi mass-deportation of 435,000 Jews from Hungary to the Auschwitz extermination camp in Poland (see my September 2016 Letter to the ...

Love alone is power

A large crowd gathered at the Temple Beth Abraham in Nashua, New Hampshire recently for the annual Greater Nashua Crop Hunger Walk, sponsored by the Church World Service and organized locally by the Interfaith Council.  The support and purpose expressed there took on extra meaning in light ...

Chandley is right choice

Infrastructure in Merrimack is a major problem. I can say that because I, along with thousands of others, literally feel it on my way to and from work almost every day, idling or crawling along Everett Turnpike or the Daniel Webster Highway, the only alternate available when the Everett ...

Vote Republican

Today’s Democrat leaders have vastly different objectives from the Democrat friends of my youth; I can’t believe these Democrat leaders represent most Democrats today. In my youth in Illinois, Americans were patriotic, anti-Communist and worked for better futures for their children; we ...

Vote for Kelly, Belanger and Ammon

We have three great Republican candidates running to represent Hollis in the New Hampshire House of Representatives. Please vote for them to keep our economy growing, taxes down and unemployment low. Dr. Jim Kelly, a resident of Hollis since 1999, is a primary care physician who also serves ...

EV infrastructure

Over the past several year, there has been an increase in the number of electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids on the road in New Hampshire. Even here in Nashua, we see a rising demand for electric vehicle charging stations available for the public at large to use. Based on my experience there ...

Shameful and self-serving

There are facts. And, then there are lies. The letter titled “Not far enough” in the Sunday Telegraph on Oct. 14, 2018, written in response to my letter of September 30 about the disgusting and vile attack of Senate Democrats against now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh, is yet another example of ...

Linn can win

I ask all of you to go out and vote for Mark Linn for New Hampshire state representative on Nov. 6. He is your only third choice in this highly contested race. We cannot trust the Republican Keith Ammon that does not show up for debates and supports President Donald Trump. We cannot trust the ...

Vote the Republican Nov. 6

Chris Sununu, unlike his Democrat opponent, believes that stimulating economic growth within New Hampshire, rather than sending more workers south to Massachusetts, is best for our future. The evidence shows Sununu’s policies are working with New Hampshire’s second-lowest unemployment rate ...

Name-calling

Our President again dignified his office by calling a woman “horse face.” I was taught you used insults when you could’t come up with a reasonable argument or answer to your opponent. However, I love horses and find horses’ faces beautiful. I’d much rather be called “horse face” ...

Vote for Avard

Attention, ALL Nashua, Hollis and Brookline voters. It has come to my attention that a Democrat is playing dirty again, spreading rumors about our No. 1 state Senator in New Hampshire, Kevin Avard. There is no other candidate who will take the time out of his own busy schedule to help a ...
