Disappointing

I am appalled after reading two articles this week that appeared in the paper. To say that I’m angry at the NRA and Gov, Chris Sununu is putting it mildly. To read that the CEO of the NRA has a seven-figure salary, and feels that the NRA should buy him a $6 million mansion, among other ...

Cal Thomas is wrong

Cal Thomas, in his recent editorial, “Smelling Rats in Baltimore,” thinks the word racist is overused, just a knee-jerk, default position by Democrats to distract from real problems, (as if racism is not a problem in the U.S. in 2019). He said elected officials, especially Democrats, ...

Still providing quality entertainment

In a recent article announcing the opening of Zingers, in the Colonel Shephard House in Milford, your readers may have been given the impression that Nelson’s Candy and Music venue in Wilton has been closed. Nothing could be further from the truth. We continue to offer a unique listening ...

Put the country first

Time has come for all good men and women to come to the aid of their country. Robert S. Mueller has and all Americans who believe in the Constitution of this great country need to as well. I have been listening to an audible version of the Mueller Report. Mueller’s testimony last week was ...

Bélanger announces resignation

I have served all the residents of Hollis to the best of my ability for nine years as your state representative in Concord. Not only have I represented you at the state level, but also as a member of the Hillsborough County delegation and Executive Committee. I appreciate your support, ...

Clear and present danger

Robert Mueller’s sworn testimony before Congress made clear, once again, that Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to the United States of America. While Mr. Mueller testified that Russia engaged in a “sweeping and systematic” attack on the 2016 election, Trump refuses to even ...

Health care system in shambles

I retired and bought the best health insurance you can buy in New Hampshire. They said the price was fixed until we reach Medicare age. The company was bought out, our health insurance cost doubled. Not a 20% increase, it doubled when we were guaranteed, under Obamacare rules, no price ...

The Mueller Report

As I watched Mr. (Robert) Mueller testify, I realized that he didn’t write the report, which is OK. Managers usually will have staff gather info and write reports. It’s done all the time. Especially when you have an unlimited budget and no deadlines. But you and I and most managers will ...

Settled silence

If man-made climate change is indeed the most urgent threat facing humanity, then experts should embrace the opportunity to make that case and convince non-believers. Unfortunately, the most strident advocates for climate-change remediation seem uninterested in coming to the table. Not ...

Put food on the table

In the Democratic Presidential Debate Sen. Harris gave a statement that” people want to know how we are going to put food on the table.” People want to hear the facts because the facts lead to truth. What Senator Harris will not tell you is the fact that African Americas enjoy the lowest ...

Full of baloney

Since I am an easy-to-get along with liberal/progressive Democrat who has never felt intimidated by or susceptible to by bullying by any conservative-Republicans and who sincerely and genuinely respectfully disagrees with conservatives who sincerely believe in political conservatism and who are ...

Continued progress

I’d like to thank Gov. Chris Sununu for signing three important mental health bills into law late last week: House Bill 239, Senate Bill 80, and Senate Bill 177. House Bill 239 makes it easier for counselors seeking to get certified to undergo the necessary processes. SB 80 further deals with ...

Tim Ryan for president

In the race for the Democratic nomination for President, I encourage New Hampshire Democrats to take a good look at Ohioan, Tim Ryan. Tim represents a congressional district in Ohio that was devastated by NAFTA. He has intervened many times on behalf of his constituents to help them through ...

Full support

Despite claims that Gov. Chris Sununu’s recent decision to veto HB365, more commonly known as the net-metering bill, is a step backwards, clear-minded New Hampshire residents should fully support the governor’s veto. I’m glad that Gov. Sununu didn’t give into corporate pressures on ...

Local control of high schools ends

Most people are unaware that the New Hampshire Department of Education has voted to end local control of high school curricula. Even fewer realize that the rule moving the credit authorization from local to state control (ED 1400) will come before the Joint Legislative Committee on ...

Heat wave driven by climate change

This weekend up to two thirds of the United States was under an extreme heat warning. Many government agencies warned of the dangers this heat can cause and to especially to look out for younger and older people as they become affected to the heat more quickly. This rise in heat waves in fueled ...

Not representative

Much has been made lately of the four freshman Reps to Congress know as the squad. The four Reps Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley and the always quotable Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are stealing all the oxygen from the Democratic party. For better or worse these four freshman Reps are ...

Stop the insults

I am honored to hear the Paul Revere bell ring each day over our town and recall the echoes of liberty that our forefathers and foremothers fought and sacrificed so much to achieve for us. I have recently learned that many slave and free black Americans also shared in the struggle for liberty ...

MacDonald should not be confirmed

Gordon MacDonald should not be confirmed as New Hampshire’s next Supreme Court Chief Justice. Aside from MacDonald’s lack of experience, his connections to the Koch network signifies that his allegiance is to private interests, not the people. MacDonald served as a Board member and ...

Open borders

Some candidates for President are talking open borders. What does that mean? Does that mean we can tax Mexicans, or that Canada can tax us? If there is no line of demarcation, how do you know where one country stops and another begins. If we have no country borders, do we need state ...
