Take care of new sidewalks

The completion of the new sidewalk in a retail section of downtown Nashua, on the west side of Main Street between Water and Factory streets, is in its final stage. I would like to encourage the citizens of Nashua to come downtown to see the new sidewalks versus the old sidewalks. Back in the ...

Zimmerman win was really prosecution’s loss

George Zimmerman’s defense did not win his trial. It was lost by the prosecution. When a dummy was brought into court and slammed forcefully repeatedly against the floor, I heard no outrage from the prosecution. In reality, Zimmerman had minor injuries, referred to as ...

Buchanan makes up own ‘facts’ about shooting

If you believe the first two “facts” pushed by Patrick Buchanan regarding Trayvon Martin, you might have believed that either – as Buchanan put it – Trayvon Martin was shot by a “racist, profiling, wannabee cop named George ...

Chance to support a local station on cable

We are the beneficiaries of the fantastic advancements in the electronics industry which provides us with the ability to receive high-definition, digital television programming and first-run motion pictures on demand. The company that provides that service at, I believe, a somewhat inflated ...

Purple Heart plate law not right

Gov. Maggie Hassan signed SB 47, effective Aug. 31, that allows a spouse to retain the Purple Heart license plate after the recipient’s death, until the death or remarriage of the surviving spouse. I strongly protest this decision. A recipient of this medal should be the only person ...

Taking issue with mayor’s paving idea

Nashua citizens paid $5 million over 10 years to purchase our local water delivery system from corporate ownership. The primary reasons were to keep decisions governing our natural water supply locally controlled, and to save from development what was left of the company land in ...

More to Nashua parking issues

Thank you for the article on Nashua’s consideration of changing the current parking restrictions for overnight vehicles. This is very important to me for another reason. Someone I know has been homeless off and on for the past five years. His vehicle is everything – ...

Shaheen did state a disservice

It is nice to know how to act as the senior senator. Jeanne Shaheen, New Hampshire’s senior senator, has shown the way. When you are required to be in D.C., acting in the best interest of the citizens of New Hampshire, you go to New York to raise money for your own reelection. Why ...

Repeal unjust laws to aid enforcement

Repeal unjust laws to aid enforcement Florida has a “stand-your-ground” law, but self-defense is an inherent natural right, and such rights are not gifts from the government. I have a free speech right to forbid George Zimmerman to drink lemonade, but he has an inherent ...

Obstructing burial is misguided act

The Nashua Area Interfaith Council, made up of religious congregations and ministries in greater Nashua, focuses on how we can be a compassionate presence in the life of our community. Our work has included organizing Anne Marie House, the annual CROP Walk and more. At our last meeting, which ...

Protest ‘carry’ laws instead

There was a time when one of the benefits of a “state” government (as opposed to a tribe or clan) was the mitigation of conflict between unrelated strangers. By allowing citizens to carry concealed or unconcealed weapons the “state” implies that it is no ...

What the Zimmerman verdict means for us

It’s my opinion that, as a direct result of the rantings of race-baiting loudmouths like the Rev. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, there will be a resurgence of racial hatred and unrest. Those who want to overturn the Zimmerman decision want a return to the old west and vigilante ...

Letter cites selective “facts” in Florida killing

A letter published July 17 made the assumption that Trayvon Martin punched George Zimmerman and slammed his head on concrete, a “crime” apparently punishable by vigilante execution, if true. Not only was there no proof that Martin hit Zimmerman first, but cellphone ...

Our justice system still the world’s best

First, I admit that I don’t know what happened between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin, because I wasn’t there. The Telegraph editorial on July 16 that opined no justice was yielded is tainted with the same emotion used to dupe the Martin family with a case that lacked ...

Support disclosure of GMOs in NH food

Do you suffer from allergies and health problems? According to the American Academy of Environment, the consumption of genetically engineered food, such as corn, sugar, canola oil, soy, vegetables and fruits, can cause serious risks to human and animal health. GMOs (genetically modified ...

Market Basket CEO deserves to stay on

I have been a loyal Market Basket customer for more than 30 years and it is, hands down, the best supermarket in this area. Apparently Consumer Reports agrees with me, for when they rated supermakets for service, perishables, price and cleanliness in their May 2012 issue, Market ...

Million homes series was a waste of space

The recent blitz of expensive New Hampshire real estate articles printed by The Telegraph - I hesitate to call you a newspaper, as you apparently believe news is less important than People magazine-type stories of how the rich live - has me bewildered. Is there no serious news your readers ...

Thank You from Special Olympics New Hampshire

Thank you to everyone in the Nashua Police Department who participated in the 2013 Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics New Hampshire. Together with the Merrimack, Milford, and Bedford Police Departments and area volunteers, they ran the “Flame of Hope” from ...

Zimmerman editorial missed the real point

Your editorial (Fla. court verdict yields no justice) totally misses the point of a jury of peers coming to a verdict. Following someone is not a crime. Carrying a concealed weapon is not a crime. Questioning someone’s intent is not a crime. Punching someone in the face and slamming ...

Supporting disclosure of GMOs in food

According to the American Academy of Environment, the consumption of genetically engineered food such as corn, sugar, canola oil, soy, vegetables and fruits can cause serious risks to human and animal health. GMOs (genetically modified organisms) have been part of the American diet for the ...
