A successful performance

Thanks in large part to The Telegraph’s publicity, about 250 turned out on Saturday evening to hear The Newmont (Vermont) Military Band concert. This collaboration between the Nashua Community Concert Association, Nashua’s SummerFun program and the Nashua School District was a ...

Our country’s failings

Aug. 2, 1776, is the day our founders signed our Declaration of Independence. “On August 2, 1776, a parchment paper copy of the Declaration was signed by 56 persons. Many of these signers were not present when the original Declaration was adopted on July 4. Signer Matthew Thornton from New ...

Not Kavanaugh

Brett Kavanaugh is being nominated for a lifetime appointment. The court must serve as a check on the executive branch – a check that’s more important now than ever, given Donald Trump’s extreme, misguided, unconstitutional executive actions. The Supreme Court must be filled with people ...

This is different?

“The American people deserve the right to have a say in who becomes the next Supreme Court Justice” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in February of 2016, explaining his decision to delay consideration of any SCOTUS nominee until after the election of November of that year (a ...

Subjective

It’s hard not to have political overload these days. There is so much on the line, and I think we are all just doing our best to keep up with the news. But then Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. This is different because this decision will effect us for years after Trump ...

Levasseur for state rep

My name is Donna Levasseur, and I want to introduce myself to you. On June 15, I filed my candidacy papers to run for the office of State Representative – District 27 in Hollis. I believe that Hollis residents deserve full-time, conservative representation in Concord. I’m very excited to ...

Andrews right for job

We’ll have a Battle Royal in Congress from the first day of the next session in January. New Hampshire needs an experienced champion to reverse the harm this Administration has done. That person is Naomi Andrews. Experienced? As Carol Shea-Porter’s chief of staff, Naomi has 10 years’ ...

To the N.H. GOP

You just don’t get it! If you had any records at all, you would know I am a conservative candidate for a sixth term, and that I have been threatened to be removed by the left wing New Hampshire Municipal Association for my exposing the “Tort of Conversion” now being perpetrated by all ...

Take action against Perdue

While you were meeting with Attorney General Jeff Sessions regarding the opioid crisis on July 12, I stood outside with many other New Hampshire citizens demonstrating our concern, anger and sadness for the lives being destroyed by addiction. One week before, I lost a family member, my ...

N.H. needs Andrews

As a social worker, I only support political candidates who have the experience and courage to fight for the people. In New Hampshire’s first congressional district race, that candidate is Naomi Andrews. As U.S. Rep Carol Shea-Porter’s chief of staff and campaign manager, she served her ...

Upholding the Constitution

In the last two years, there have been many times when I have gone to Concord to testify for citizens, especially in the area of Right to Know. Dick Hinch of Merrimack, acting as a team player, put having power over actually making sure citizens would keep their rights under the New Hampshire ...

Take action

Some U.S. citizens have a plan for how to get about $1,600 more a year while saving the planet. We know we have to save the planet; climate scientists tell us that climate change is real, it’s us, it’s bad and we’re sure. See the Fourth National Climate Assessment for details, at ...

Questions

Questions I would like to ask, but most likely will never get the opportunity. And even if I did, I doubt I would get an answer. But here goes. Sen. Bernie Sanders. How did it feel when you found out the DNC was conspiring against you, and there was no way you would get the nomination? ...

Fox News didn’t go along

It is encouraging that, for once, Fox News didn’t go along with Trump. In his obsequious fawning over Putin and his disavowal of American intelligence agencies, Trump went too far even for Fox. Trump will no doubt walk back his sell-out. So the real question is whether his new-found critics ...

Wake up Trumpists

Donald Trump’s recent performance in Helsinki once and for all exposed his incompetence, self-serving behavior and unashamed obsession with the possibility that he will be exposed for colluding with Russian meddling in his election. Not because it was illegal, but because it means he didn’t ...

Special session

The U. S. Supreme Court ruled recently in the so-called “Wayfair Decision” that states with sales taxes can require companies located in other states and selling their products over the internet, to collect the sales taxes required in those transactions. Prior to this ruling, many states ...

Shameful example

As a New Hampshire student, I am shaken by the continued presence of mass shootings in schools across the country. Youth are under a constant threat of our communities being ripped apart by bullets. Schools should be places to foster learning and growth, not unsafe, fear-ridden environments as ...

Andrews for Congress

As an Epping resident for almost 39 years, I am excited to say that I will be voting on Sept. 11 for one of Epping’s own, Naomi Andrews, for Congress. From the moment I met Naomi as a 10 year old, she was a go-getter, and her positive, enthusiastic, can-do attitude eventually carried her ...

hank you for taking action

It has been said, and rightly so, that the disability community has a powerful voice. Individuals who experience developmental disabilities and acquired brain injuries and their families have long been vocal about their experiences. The advocacy of this community was instrumental in bringing ...

Health should come first

Under the leadership of the last administration, we took steps to fight pollution and climate change. One of the most important strides was better vehicle fuel efficiency. This is incredibly important, because 28 percent of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions come from vehicles, with every gallon of ...
