Zoning board has another chance

I am glad I don’t live on Chaucer Road any more. When I was there, the Flatley Co. agreed to the provision of a 100-foot buffer so lights and noise behind the hotel would not interfere with the comfort of the residents bordering on that property. It wasn’t that long before the 100 foot ...

A tasty surprise

During my visit to Main Street Nashua on Friday night I did not discover a rainbow or a leprechaun, but I did happen upon a most delightful dish of corned beef and cabbage. At 89, I have sampled this meal in many different places, but this one was outstanding; the meat was so tender it cut with ...

Our nation deserves better

President Trump fancies himself to be a tough, security-minded leader. He is neither, and his words and policies make America a more dangerous place. He recently stated, “ I can tell you I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump – ...

Reducing the need

I do see the merit of ELL, but I question the affordability. As a Welcoming City, there are limits to what we can afford. Rather than increasing the ELL staff, consideration needs to be given to reducing the need. Suggest BOA/BOE take a hard look.

Why N.H. needs the SMART Act

We must fight for recycling

On March 12 at the Board of Alderman meeting it was called to the city’s attention that the recycling program in Nashua is under funded and needs an additional $120,000 to continue to operate in the 2019 fiscal year. This means operating for the months of May, April, and June. Without this ...

Budget balances needs

Gov. Chris Sununu’s budget balances the need to solve existing problems and to responsibly manage taxpayer dollars. The most notable aspect of his budget is the overarching theme that one-time monies should only be used to pay for one-time expenses. Surplus funds are often seen as a green ...

Cursive still matters

Handwriting matters: does cursive matter? Research shows that legible cursive writing averages no faster than printed handwriting of equal or greater legibility. (Sources for all research are available on request.) The fastest, clearest handwriters avoid cursive: though they aren’t ...

A job well done

Feline Friends recently saved a cat that was being tormented to death in Derry by a psychopath coward. Feline Friends were the only people I know that gave this cat a chance – an operations, love, medical care, etc. But still, there are cover-ups by the animals controls of America, courts ...

Lyndeborough zoning changes

Article 2 (Question 1) merely replaces the existing zoning articles with the proposed articles with minor changes. For example, in section 408.00 it replaces the name USDA Soil Conservation Service with the new name of the agency being USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service. Article 3 ...

Not so strong

Just a quick correction to your editorial about legal marijuana. You stated that today’s pot is much stronger than before, and you quoted THC in the 90 percent range. This is not true, most marijuana is in the low teens to mid 20 percent range not 90 percent.

Don’t be fooled again

In 2016, Milford selectmen promised quick riches from a gravel operation on town owned land, the former Brox property, but my taxes are still going up this year. At the polls selectmen handed out phony million dollar promises, but I haven’t seen benefits of real money. It was a ...

Reduce class sizes

We are writing in support of Article 14, which would reduce class size in Amherst (PreK-8) schools. We have seen first-hand the effect of larger class sizes and the impact on students in our schools. Amherst currently has the 3rd highest class size in NH for Grades 3&4 and the 7th highest ...
