We are getting job done

As a current member of Nashua’s Board of Education, I feel compelled to respond to Mr. Farrington’s guest editorial entitled, “It’s time for the board of education members to put differences aside and get the job done.” Despite Mr. Farrington’s criticisms, we are getting the job ...

N.H. families are ready

Decades. That’s how long New Hampshire’s mental health system has needed critical attention and investment. Civilly committed patients need to be removed from the secure psychiatric unit (SPU) located within the Men’s prison in Concord. Patients who need admission to the state’s acute ...

Off the mark

According to Mr. Teeboom’s latest Telegraph column, he believes that badly needed educational services for special education students and non-English speaking students are a colossal waste of money. Mr. Teeboom seems to give us the price of everything, but unfortunately, neglects to show the ...

Not everyone is so fortunate

Congratulations to Mr. Teeboom for being such a quick study when it came to learning English and thanks for being civic-minded and serving as an elected official for so many years. That said, he is wrong on nearly every point he makes in Sunday’s op-ed about special programs and supports in ...

Nashua, we will miss you

Was Nashua a good place to live? You bet it was, and as we move forward to the next chapter in our lives, we look back with fond memories of 46 years in the Gate City. We arrived in Nashua as kids right out of college, and traveled our way through several successful career/business adventures, ...

Journalism masquerade

Just when I think Trump can do no more for me, he surprises with another triumph. The latest is emphatically exposing the Main Stream Media (MSM) for breaking basic rules of bona fide journalism. They have committed figurative suicide, and by choosing to go all-in, they should pay the price for ...

Subsidizing solar

In response to Mr. Bill Hooley’s letter regarding subsidizing solar, perhaps he did not realize that every taxpayer already is subsidizing the oil and gas industry, at a cost of about $10 billion each year. In addition to subsidizing the big oil companies, U.S. taxpayers are spending billions ...

Oppose SB 263

Recently, Connecticut runner Selina Soule was beaten by two muscular young men in a girls’ high school track championship, missing out on a chance to compete before college coaches. “We all know the outcome of the race before it starts; it’s demoralizing,” she said of having to ...

Board must take action

Every taxpayer, every citizen, every parent should be saddened by the lack of professionalism and lack of respect shown by board of education members in Nashua. Members need to listen to each other and the public, as well as to allow free speech without interruption or commentary. Foul ...

Comparing costs

Now that the Muller investigation is over, there are those on the right who are complaining about its excessive cost - a tremendous waste of taxpayer money! Taken in context of other special prosecutor investigations, it turns out that Muller’s is a deal. According to recent Time magazine ...

Get to work

Decades. That’s how long New Hampshire’s mental health system has needed critical attention and investment. Civilly committed patients need to be removed from the secure psychiatric unit located within the Men’s prison in Concord. Patients who need admission to the state’s acute ...

Stirring up trouble

Make America Great Again is not a policy. Lock her up is not a policy. Greeting is not a policy, but you have to admit President Donald Trump has engaged 100 percent of the electorate, however it’s not about love or hate, it’s about necessary or unnecessary. Is a Trump wall really ...

Work or tricks?

Will the Nashua Assessors Department do the work, or use their magic tricks? This year, Nashua property owners submitted 376 abatement requests before the March 1 deadline. This number is about 340 percent higher than last year’s number of abatement requests and about 45 percent more than ...

Taking the wrong path

I believe that I speak for many Democrats when I tell you that I don’t like some of the overall direction that the national Democratic party is taking. Neither do some authors such as Thomas Frank. I would like the Party to be more like it was in the 1960s when it focused primarily on the ...

Licenses for people here illegally

Has the lefts agenda dawned on you yet? First, they want to cripple law enforcement, not allow the state and local police to work with the feds regarding illegal immigration. Then they want to abolish ICE. They have pretty much lost the voter id argument, so now the latest ploy, let’s ...

When Does 2+2=3?

At the budget review committee of 25 March, Alderman Jette asked the Mayor what was the cost impact to the budget as a result of the recent events in the Assessor’s Office and the hiring of an Administrative Services Director. In paraphrasing the Mayor’s response: “well, the Chief ...

Subsidizing solar

I think most people don’t realize that every taxpayer is already subsidizing solar. When a solar user sells power back to the utility they are paid the retail rate. They should be paid the wholesale rate ... the same rate that the utility pays for buying power. What right do they have to make ...

We need a livable wage

Arguments against raising New Hampshire’s $7.25 minimum wage are so tiresome. They’re nothing but myths written by spin doctors to justify the redistribution of wealth from the base of the economic pyramid – the hourly workers without whom businesses would collapse – to the ...

Sununu deserves praise

Recently, the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services finalized an ambitious 10-year plan to rebuild our state’s mental health system, and Gov. Chris Sununu deserves applause for wasting no time getting to work on its recommendations. The governor’s budget proposal provides ...

Support the N.H. advantage

New Hampshire Democrats, led by State Sen. Dan Feltes, are putting our state on the pathway to an income tax. They are pursuing an income tax by tucking it inside proposed paid family medical leave legislation, called Senate Bill 1. Put simply, their plan is an 0.5% income tax. Democrats have ...
