Kavanaugh and the FBI

If the Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee had any interest in learning the truth about the Kavanaugh attempted rape case, they would have called in the FBI (via the Executive Branch) all by themselves. Instead, they are quite willing to put a man on the Supreme Court, for life, who ...

Grateful for response

Recently, there were issues regarding the fire alarms sounding at our condos at Exit 1. The response: Caring, prompt attention from the fire department was very professional and reassuring to those who exited and were observing those brave and kind firefighters search the buildings and give an ...

Is this where are we going?

No person chooses to get ill. No ill person wants to be a pre-existing condition. Certainly, no individual/family should go bankrupt from their personal tragedy. However, if the current lawsuit in Texas, brought by 20 Republican states and supported by the Trump Administration succeeds, the ...

The best is yet to come

Thursday’s front-page article on the value of getting seventh graders out on the Nashua River was right on the mark. Too few residents seem to take advantage of the city’s efforts to make the river more accessible to all by upgrading access at the Millyard and Stellos Stadium/Mine Falls Dam ...

The opioid crisis mural

The newest mural in progress in Nashua by the Positive Stree Art group is now referenced in the Sunday Telegraph as “ The Rememberance Mural.” This art group had earlier called the mural “Take Courage” as reported in The Telegraph on July 24. Numerous articles in our local paper quote ...

Vote for Chandley

Since announcing my candidacy for State Representative for Merrimack, I have come to know another candidate, Shannon Chandley, who is running for State Senate. Shannon has a record of bipartisanship in her tenure as a state representative, and she works hard on issues important to her ...

Make the pledge

In 2010, the Affordable Health Care bill was passed by Congress and signed by President Barack Obama (thus its nickname, “Obamacare”). Since then, tens of millions of lower-income Americans – 130,000 New Hampshire residents – have been able to purchase health insurance through this ...

Seeking support on Nov. 6

I am writing to thank all those residents of Bedford that supported me in the recent primary election. I am campaigning for a New Hampshire House position from Bedford, because I believe the residents of Bedford deserve a choice of representation. The following areas are my priorities as ...

Shaking in their boots

Could The Telegraph pick a more unattractive picture of Brett Kavanaugh on Sept. 11 – placed right next to Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hasan announcing they will not vote for him? I’m shocked. I’m surprised the senators, with all due respect, didn’t insist The Telegraph add a ...

Wake-up call

We’ve heard about the tragic gas explosions in Andover. Right now, Liberty Utilities is proposing a new gas line from Manchester to Stratham, with an associated large liquid natural (fracked) gas storage tank in Epping. This pipeline, which will run along 101, poses explosion risks. And ...

Is this the America we want?

America is a nation of people from diverse backgrounds, working together for peace and prosperity, and welcoming others with the same goals. However, current immigration policy defies that notion. Prospective immigrants are deprived of human rights, to the horrendous extent of separating babies ...

Bigotry

Your recent editorial “Hatred more common” failed to offer an answer to the question it raised: Why do more people today feel free to express their racial hatred? The answer is obvious, I believe, when one considers the continuous racist words and actions of the one person Americans are ...

Kind gesture

As a candidate for office, I was prohibited from handling ballots in the recent election, which is normally part of my duties as a Ward 3 Selectwoman. So, after the polls closed, one of my tasks was to record write-in candidates that were on the Republican ballot. My fellow selectwoman read the ...

Real leadership

The always, “ever so humble” ex-President Barack Obama once again expressed his self-love by referring to himself 102 times during his diatribe in Illinois. True to form, he attempted to take credit for all of President Donald Trump’s successes as he had blamed President George W. Bush ...

True allegiance

There is much angst among the Trump Administration and some Republicans these days about the so-called “Deep State.” But who exactly are these people, and why do they matter? There are approximately 2.8 million full-time federal civilian employees as of June 2017, according to Bureau of ...

An open letter

Dear President Schriock, I know Emily’s List has supported some very progressive and capable female candidates from across our great country, and I applaud that. However, this election cycle, your organization really blew it by supporting and promoting the candidacy of political ...

Override veto

On behalf of the New Hampshire Sustainable Energy Association and our hundreds of business and individual members, I call on the New Hampshire Legislature to override the vetoes of SB446 and SB365 on Thursday 9/13. We and our members support a strong economic future for the Granite State that ...

Being and doing

Educators (parents or teachers) sometimes show more appreciation for guys for who they do than for what they are. They praise them when they get excellent grades from college and reproach them when are low. However, we must value people by their human dignity, regardless of their academic or ...

A good start

The Hollis-Brookline Junior Cavaliers football season had a great start at ConVal when both teams beat the hosting team by crushing numbers. The arsity team won 24-8 and JV 28-0. The first touchdown was a high catch at the end zone just minutes into the game by No. 3 Amani Elfadil, followed ...

We must speak out

First, they’d come for the rapists and murderers (they claimed), and the crowds chanted and cheered. Then, they‘d come for the “bad hombres” (they promised), and the rallies went wild. Then, they came for asylum seekers at the borders and the children in their arms, and the true ...
