It’s already started

We are still in the month of January 2019, and yet every day there is at least one item in The Telegraph about the 2020 election. This election is well over a year and a half away, so it appears that we are going to be subjected to a ceaseless cacophony of campaign claptrap until the day of ...

To the community

The New Year is a good time to look back and acknowledge those who have helped us to achieve so much for families in need in Greater Nashua this past year. We at the Front Door Agency are especially grateful for the strong support from area Rotary Clubs whose members often work tirelessly ...

What’s changed?

President Obama was in favor of a wall. Nancy Pelosi was in favor of a wall. Hillary Clinton was in favor of a wall. Chuck Schumer was in favor of a wall. What has changed? Oh, yeah. A Republican is now in the White House. Maybe someday the Democrats will care more about the country ...

Solution to climate change

We have a major problem on our hands for 2019, climate change. This issue isn’t going to solve itself and will continue to get worse if we fail to act. But there is a ray of light at the end of this dark tunnel, carbon pricing. Carbon pricing is when a government places a fee or tax on ...

Term limits

Please enthusiastically support term limits. Our system is broken. Term limits is the only possible solution. Our country depends upon it.

An open letter

Dear Mr. Watkins, I am impressed with your empirical evidence of arrests , criminal charges, criminal convictions and overall apprehensions at the border. Does a wall make sense? The arrest data makes the case that border security does not allow people to pour into the country undetected, ...

Clear and unequivocal

Reports of prejudice and discrimination are on the rise in this country, and New Hampshire is far from exempt. Racism is a systemic issue that many New Hampshire residents have had the privilege of overlooking for most of their lives. The racial makeup of our state is severely lacking in ...

Let’s come together

After reading Rep. Jeanine Notter’s letter to the Editor on Jan. 6 titled “Tyranny starts with disarming citizens,” I’m feeling compelled to write a rebuttal, not because I think she is wrong that a sign stating that you are entering a “Gun Free Zone” will stop a criminal from a ...

Let’s not forget Barton Carter

Heroes are archetypes for generations to come – some became iconic figures like Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Albert Schweitzer, and Martin Luther King. None of them pursued the glory or wanted to leave in the memory of humankind their accomplishments neither Barton Carter. Barton had ...

Goals for 2019?

On Dec. 22, 2018, I asked both our U.S. senators, via their web sites, “What are your goals for 2019?” Simple question. As of this writing, I have yet to hear back from either. To me, that means that they either don’t have any goals, or they don’t want to share them with me or anyone ...

A bad solar site in Milford

If someone asks me “Do I believe in global warming?” I say, “It’s not a matter of belief, it’s a matter of evidence, so yes, I do.” Solar farms are a good solution to our current ecological crisis. But there are good sites and bad sites for solar farms. The 120-acre deforestation ...

Traumatizing the country

The Labor Department added 312,00 jobs in December 2018. President Trump shut down the government, furloughed 400,000 workers and mandated 300,000 more to work without pay. Is this making America great again? We should have no fear of Russia, China or North Korea destroying America, we ...

Thank you for your support

The Salvation Army would like to thank everyone in the community who contributed to making this past Christmas possible. The Salvation Army was able to serve 681 families. This includes 1,468 children and 1,016 adults. Serving 681 families at Christmas would not have been possible without ...

A practical look at a border wall

Will a border wall prevent or hinder legal border crossings or legal immigration? No. Does a border wall discriminate against women or children? No. Will a border wall prevent all illegal entry? No, probably not. So, what exactly will it do? It will hinder illegal border ...

A heartfelt thanks

We want to express our deep gratitude for the outpouring of generosity from the Greater Nashua community for children in need this holiday season. As we have for more than 25 years, the Front Door Agency again coordinated a Holiday Santa Program in collaboration with other agencies and ...

‘A pox on all their houses!’

The latest episode of the recurring government shutdown fiasco should serve to make people realise the underlying stupidity of the way that the Federal Government conducts its operations. Consider numerous government agencies that have been created to provide a multiplicity of services for the ...

Consider this

As you prepare to take your oath of office in the coming days and begin working on my behalf, I ask you to please consider these points: You represent everyone in your jurisdiction. Rich and poor, young and old, employed and unemployed, PhDs and high school dropouts. This also includes ...

Veoride program discriminates

This is in response to the opinion on Page A4 of the Dec. 28, 2018, edition of The Telegraph about the Veoride bike program. The piece went on and on about what a great idea it is, but no one thinks about how it discriminates against two groups of people, and I am in both groups. I am severely ...

Tyranny starts with disarming citizens

The State Legislature had its first Session on Wednesday. The Democrats first order of business was to disarm state representatives. I campaigned as a defender of the Second Amendment in every election and am grateful to the voters who elected me. My voting record shows that I have always ...

Thank you, Gov. Sununu

The New Hampshire economy is roaring thanks to Gov. Chris Sununu. In just these past few weeks it’s been reported that not only has the Granite State’s unemployment rate dropped to 2.5 percent, but the number of young people moving here has also been on the rise in recent years. The ...
