I can name that tune

Local Commentary

Anyone who has read my columns in the past probably knows I’m a music junkie. From Doo Wop to hard rock, my tastes run the gamut. But in addition to that, like most, my mind always associates a specific tune to a specific time in life. Some of those memories are good and some not so good. ...

Is digital addiction changing our brains?

Local Commentary

Know the state

Editorials

Some will probably accuse us of New Hampshire elitism for this editorial, but we don’t care. New Hampshire has been widely known for its first-in-the-nation presidential primary since at least 1952. Regardless of where they live in the U.S., those who follow presidential politics know many ...

Keep laws safeguarding elections

It can’t be Corey

Corey Lewandowski, deemed too corrupt and aggressive for the Trump campaign, is reportedly considering getting back into politics by running for office out of New Hampshire. Here is a list of things he has done in his life. He attacked and choked a protester. He was charged with battery ...

We can do better

Letters

We have added layer after layer of bureaucracy to our health care system in New Hampshire. These layers have not brought our citizens closer to receiving care. Gov. Chris Sununu and Commissioner Meyers have recommended a targeted approach for provider rate increases. This approach would ...

The tip of the iceberg

Letters

One of the more ridiculous Telegraph editorials I have ever read was your Aug. 31, 2019, editorial entitled, “WE MUST DO MORE TO END RACISM.” It should be obvious to even the casual reader that this editorial is not in the public interest, completely out of touch with the history of this ...

Sununu is right

Letters

Gov. Chris Sununu is correct, “... fiscally responsible and sustainable rate increases” are needed. An across the board increase of 3.1% for all providers will not address the very serious problems we are facing in our health care system. Rate increases should be targeted to address access ...

Something to think about

While at the protest of the recent Trump rally in Manchester, I saw several elderly Catholic nuns in the front row of the protestors, holding a sign that read, “Sisters of Mercy Stand with Immigrants.” They are of the order of nuns who taught me in high school. I am thankful for their ...

That is not unreasonable

Letters

Did you know that our Democrat majority in the New Hampshire Statehouse and Senate recently proposed and passed a state income tax bill? Fortunately, our Republican governor vetoed it. This is a big deal and we deserved to have a say and not have it “sneaked in” and learned about after the ...

Be aware of heart disease

Letters

I was at a new height in my fitness journey when I had my heart attack. I thought I had been doing everything right for my health, which is why I wasn’t concerned about my indigestion. The acute pain in my chest that followed, a grind-your-teeth kind of pain, was over before it started, as ...

Don’t be gullible

Editorials

Well, they’re at it again, trying to pit Americans against each other and thus, disrupting the upcoming presidential election. The Russians? We don’t know, although it is certain that the Kremlin’s online campaign of inciting dissention among us never stopped. Someone decided ...
