Thank you

On behalf of the 2019 “Fire and Fusion-An Executive Chef Competition” event committee, the Board of Directors and the staff of the Nashua Senior Activity Center, we would like to express our deepest gratitude to all of those who made our 7th Annual Fire and Fusion Executive Chef ...

A do-nothing board of education

In reference to Mr. Guarino’s letter of April 14, where he touts the supposed good works of this most recent board of education and continues to disparage the past board and Mr. Farrington, I would like to point out some facts that he leaves out. First, the notion that this board has been ...

Comcast Cares Day thank you

On behalf of the Windham Recreation Department, thank you to Comcast NBCUniversal for the two projects that they volunteered with in Windham – Bingo with the Seniors and Sprucing up Wonderland Playground. On April 30 and May 4, more than 50 volunteers from the Town of Windham joined forces ...

‘100 percent fossil free?’ – Nonsense!

I don’t want a “climate” mayor, I want a “budget” mayor. Don’t waste our money on feel-good eco-nonsense that is driving up our taxes and driving seniors on fixed incomes out of their homes. Electric cars don’t eliminate emissions, they just move the emissions to a different ...

Fix Route 101

I agree with the Telegraph editorial of Sunday May 5, 2019, in that The Route 101 bypass is a hot spot of horror stories. The historic crash data, I believe, proves this to be true. I do not; however, agree that the solution is to lower the speed limit. The bypass was built as a limited access ...

Nashua landfill issue

It was reported at the public hearing for the proposed expansion of the Nashua Landfill, “no residents spoke in favor or in opposition to the project.” My neighbors, who border the landfill, didn’t speak because we were not on notice by the town of the hearing. Now, the town writes Dear ...

We can restore Notre Dame

My daughters and I shared shock and horror over the news of Notre Dame’s burning. The saving of the medieval rose windows and stone facade comforts us; we are encouraged by France’s determination to rebuild. But some are not so optimistic, such as syndicated columnist L. Brent Bozell, in ...

Thanks to all

With the help of many, many volunteers and sponsors, the Milford Historical Society’s April Open House was a wonderful success. The first event celebrating the 40th anniversary of our move into the Carey House was sponsored by the Milford Rotary Club. “A Visit From The Hutchinson Family” ...

Common sense legislation

In regard to “Why reward illegals” and “Licenses for people here illegally”, it would be constructive to step back and take a deep breath. Please, we need to talk about this. We can all agree that we have a broken immigration system that needs to be fixed. The 2013 bipartisan Senate ...

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 ...
