In addition to the national election, there are other important elections that will impact our future here in the Granite State. One involves the election of County Attorney. Here in Hillsborough County, we will have a great opportunity to vote for a solid candidate that not only represents ...

‘Come let us reason together’

Your Sunday, Aug. 9, guest column by Steve Negron went into some details about House Resolution 5717 regarding gun rights and his reasons to inform the public. As a candidate for New Hampshire’s Second Congressional District House seat, I am sure that he is aware that this HR must pass ...

Re-elect Shannon Chandley

We have lived in Merrimack for over forty-five years and we have seen a number of state senators come and go. We had one who was kind to animals, another who seemed more pre-occupied with the senate presidency, and yet another who had his eyes on the governor’s chair. None of them really ...

Sununu understands

Through a multitude of programs, New Hampshire has provided much needed relief to our state’s small business. Gov. Chris Sununu has stood by the small business community and these funds have helped ensue business can keep their doors open and provide employment for Granite Staters and their ...

Free press is the perfect check

Systemic failures in health care and law enforcement have reared their ugly heads in this great nation. We’ve all been left with a deeper sense of distrust for these institutions than we’ve ever had before in our tumultuous history. We suffer as a populace from an accountability problem. ...

Support Emmett Soldati

I am a born and raised Granite Stater and a New Hampshire small business owner, and before I heard about Emmet Soldati running for Executive Council’s District 2 seat, I had no idea what the Executive Council even was. (And I’m sure I’m not alone.) New Hampshire is the only state with a ...

Ignored voices

I was one of those who testified against the appt of Scott Mason to the position of Executive Director of the Fish and Game Department. My objection was mostly regarding his lack of experience for the job. However, after listening to the testimony, I found that there were many compelling ...

Voters should know now

You would hope that Congress would function in a time of a pandemic and deep recession. The House of Representatives took action to address these problems in May, but Mitch McConnell and his party in the Senate decided to ignore what they saw and wait until mid-July to see if the virus ...

Board should give notice

When Superintendent Jahmal Mosley pursued a position outside of the district without giving the Nashua Board of Education prior notice, he demonstrated a lack of commitment, not only to completing his contract, but to the City that welcomed him with open arms. Jahmal Mosley was given a great ...

The point of no return

Climate change has always been a looming threat. But we have hit a point of no return with Greenland’s ice sheets. These ice sheets help to hold back the rising sea levels allowing coastal cities not to flood. Greenland has been suffering from the effects of climate change for decades. But ...

Uplifted

It’d be 1983 that I met Congresswoman Shirley Chisolm in our New Hampshire State House. Our first black Congresswoman. Because I was working for the Jesse Jackson campaign, I was called to come to Concord. I was thirty-eight. My daughters were thirteen and ten. My ten-year-old grew up to ...

Look at all sides

I didn’t realize when I was in high school how much my favorite history teacher taught me when I was in her classes for both English History and United States History. Studying English History was a good way to build a foundation to understand the founding of the United States of ...

Thank you, health care distributors

I serve as the primary caregiver to my elderly mother who suffers from Crohn’s Disease and other ailments associated with her age. She has become fully dependent upon me for her basic needs, a responsibility which has only increased since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result ...

Jobs: The whole story

Lots of jobs: that’s what Amazon says it will bring to Hudson. They say they will have 1,000-2,500 employees at their Hudson location. But, let’s dig deeper. How many are part-time or seasonal jobs? How many are drivers; in recent months 1,200 Amazon drivers across the U.S. were laid off ...

Who’s really to blame

The U.S. Postal Service is in the news a lot, lately. I see a lot of misinformation falsely explaining the financial predicament they are currently in. The experiences I share come from my 36 year career as a letter carrier. First, some background. No, I’m not going to speak about mail ...

Is Hudson prepared for Amazon?

Amazon wants to come to Hudson. What would it bring? Along with traffic, pollution, noise and a burden on town resources comes the very real possibility of a damaging fire. Google the Amazon Redlands fire. Just this past June 5, 2020, the 3-year old LA-area facility (the size of just 1 of the 3 ...
