Letters to the Editor: April 27, 2017

Let’s send sewage right to Washington President Trump’s executive order about coal mining permits mining companies to dump wastes into streams and rivers. Municipalities are much larger job creators than coal mining companies and one would assume they too are now permitted to dump wastes ...

F-35 program good for our region, state As a first generation immigrant, I understand the benefits of hard work. I immigrated to the U.S. to pursue my passion for my career as a speech pathologist and audiologist and the advanced research opportunities that are available here. We are here ...

It’s been all downhill for Gov. Chris Sununu Gov. Chris Sununu’s first 100 days in office has been all downhill. I’m not talking about his abuse of a government twitter account to promote his family’s ski resort. I’m talking about the job losses he has overseen – half a billion ...

Phone companies need to get rid of scammers I get several scam calls every day.   The Do Not Call List is simply ignored by scammers. And I get the same recorded message over and over – regardless of whether I hang up or press a button to speak to the scammer and then tell them to stop ...

Let’s clean NH’s environment clean Some years ago I fled the urban life for the tranquility of the country. I settled in a home up on a ridge in a wild, remote part of Lyndeboro adjacent to a beaver pond. I spent many hours by that pond and sometimes was lucky enough at dawn or twilight to ...

Letters to the Editor: Friday, April 7

Congress needs to amend, not repeal I was a little dismayed with the Telegraph editorial from March 31 in that you pointed out that “Democrats point with glee to the failure of GOP plan.” First, you spoke of the glee in the final paragraph of the editorial and then you pointed it as if it ...

Letters to the editor: April 5, 2017

We need Sen. John McCain now more than ever before I met U.S. Sen. John McCain so often when he was campaigning in New Hampshire against George W. Bush. He even introduced me by name to his wife at our chamber of commerce dinner. Over the years I have come to admire him because he has such ...

All-day kindergarten is expensive, unnecessary The Nashua School District wants to offer all-day kindergarten in every elementary school. The reason is obvious – the district wants to fill the open space in its elementary schools rather than save millions of dollars by closing ...

Thanks to Sen. Avard for clean energy bill I’d like to recognize Sen. Kevin Avard and his support for Senate Bill 129, NH Clean Energy Bill. The bill supports renewable energy in the form of wood chip electricity markets. These markets create thousands of jobs in the state in forest ...

Gov. should protect women’s rights in NH

Gov. Chris Sununu recently came out and opposed the Trump/Ryan attempt to repeal Affordable Care Act. Sununu said that “he wants to see a bill that gives more flexibility to New Hampshire” and that “the uncertain future of expanded Medicaid also gives pause.” I read on, expecting him to ...

Something is fishy with group’s mailing

Several days ago I received a rather large envelope in the mail from the Disabled Vets organization in Maryland. In this package were a pad of paper, a pen, a 2017-2018 planner and a battery-operated calculator. With the letter asking for a donation was an attached check for $2.50 all ...

Gorsuch isn’t a good fit for Supreme Court

The Telegraph editorial on March 25, supporting Neil Gorsuch as a good choice for the U.S. Supreme Court is superficial and wrong.  You write admiringly of the impression Gorsuch has made in his responses during his recent Senate hearings, but you do not actually address how his ...

Education shouldn’t go to highest bidder

The recent withdrawal of the Republican’s attempt to replace the ACA is evidence that there are Republicans with some common sense; millions of people would have lost their health care. The Obama administration said the ACA wasn’t perfect, but rather a starting point. So let’s not waste ...

Thanks to those who came out in storm

The politicians, not the voters of New Hampshire, said changing the day of voting due to a major snowstorm was the right decision and safety prevailed. Stating the results would be different only proves protecting the “family corporation” has always been the life goal. The makeup of Board ...

There are many AARP courses available

As an AARP driving instructor, I was very please to read your editorial “Everyone could use a refresher.” I think that is appropriate to note that there are several AARP safe driving classes that are being presented throughout the year in Greater Nashua. In fact, over the next several ...

On behalf of the Hudson School District Leadership Team, we would like to thank you for voting to support our three-year contract. We deeply appreciate your recognition of the hard work and dedication of our membership and look forward to a productive future of working with your students. Dan ...

Nashua’s educators are not babysitters

[sic]I am writing in response to comments made by Ward 5 Alderman Don LeBrun in the Nashua Telegraph an article, “Public hearing on Nashua education budget set for Wednesday,” published Tuesday, March 21. As an educator for nine years with a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree, I am ...

Many used out-of-state IDs to vote here

An article in the March 5 edition of the Union Leader says that data from the Secretary of State’s office shows that nearly 7,000 votes were cast by voters who presented an out-of-state driver’s license for identification – 5,903 of the newly registered voters in November used an ...

A look at downtown’s homeless population

The day after the latest winter storm, as we walked to Norton’s for breakfast. We approached an elderly man sitting on a bench near City Hall, dressed the way homeless people dress, and asked him whether we could bring him a cup of coffee and a piece of bread. “Rather hot chocolate and ...

Consider becoming a volunteer for CASA

In 2016, New Hampshire experienced over 500 opioid-related deaths. Unfortunately, this number is only the tip of this iceberg of the number of children whose young lives are impacted by drug abuse. The innocent victims of this epidemic are the children who are exposed to the trauma of their ...
