No more Trump

“The state is me” famously said France’s King Louis XIV – absolute monarch during France’s classical age. His ornate and gold-filigreed style also is the style of President Donald Trump’s New York City penthouse. Trump is attracted to Louis XIV. Now, Trump has criticized the ...

The Emperor’s religion

The Emperor has spoken and wants his subjects to obey. By Easter Sunday he wants the churches filled and life back to normal. Praise to the Emperor whom we all know is a highly religious man only looking out for his subjects’ well-being. This edict for life to get back to normal wouldn’t be ...

Clean bill should have been passed

Once again, we find absolute proof that our representatives don’t care about the people ... especially those suffering financially and otherwise, from the coronavirus. Recognizing the need for a massive bill from the government to help everyone, our representatives follow the dictate of ...

No bailout again for airline industry

In the days following the 9/11 tragedy, Congress and the Bush administration made $15 billion available to our crippled airline industry in the form of grants and loan guarantees. As then-press secretary Ari Fleischer stated, “A safe, viable and effective commercial air travel system is ...

We’re in this together

They say hindsight is 20-20. If that isn’t the truth, I don’t know what is anymore! I recall a week or so ago reading all the memes and comments on Facebook about the time change, full moon and Friday the 13th being all in one week, and how we would survive. We talk about these things, ...

Cash-back carbon pricing

Twenty-four New Hampshire towns, including Exeter, Plymouth, Windham and Londonderry, voted this week in support of asking our state and federal leaders to address climate change with cash-back carbon pricing legislation. Ten more towns will vote on the carbon cash-back warrant article in the ...

N.H. restaurants need your trust

As the world faces the current pandemic, we must all focus inward toward our local communities and working together to survive whatever the future will hold. As CEO of Great NH Restaurants, I never dreamed I would face the situation we are now in. If you’re like me, you are filled with more ...

Media using scare-tactics

If you believe the hysteria brought on by the COVID-19 outbreak you might as well curl up and die right now, because “it’s” coming right at us! That is pretty much what we’re being told on the nightly news and in the daily newspapers. Watch for the buzzwords. How many times have you ...

The real objective

Unless he makes a miraculous recovery, it appears that Bernie Sanders will shortly yield to Joe Biden for the Democratic nomination for president. The real question is: What do his followers want? Will they continue their honest and passionate quest for a “revolution,” martyring themselves ...

Thank you, DOT

On behalf of the Nashua Beautification Advisory Committee, I would like to whole-heartedly thank New Hampshire DOT Administrator John Corcoran and his staff for working with us to clear the unsightly, felled trees on Henri Burque Highway near the intersection of Concord Street that had long ...

A climate change solution

It was 69 degrees outside today at my school in Manchester, and I have a nordic ski race scheduled for tomorrow. “March” doesn’t generally bring to mind T-shirts, birds, and hot pavement; but now, and in the near future, it will. This is only one of the many effects of human caused ...

‘Dumb’ and ‘Disastrous?’

“Dumb” and “Disastrous?” According to Gov. Chris Sununu that’s what raising the state minimum wage would be! (New Hampshire Labor News, Jan. 31, 2020) Really? Gov. Sununu is wrong. Studies from the Economic Policy Institute found that a raise to $12 an hour would positively affect ...

Climate change needs addressed

Politics has always been a fight for power either by people or political parties. This fight branches into all issues and climate change is no different. From the outright denial, ignoring of dangerous environment disasters, and lack of green energy projects, climate change has gotten stuck in ...

Protect state parks

Next week the New Hampshire House of Representatives will be voting on a bill to protect state parks from encroachment by landfill developers. The bill, HB 1319, would create a two-mile buffer around state parks, to protect all state parks from odors, scavengers animals, water contamination and ...

Ill-equipped and unprepared

Today, the president paid a visit to the CDC. Trump has spent three years taking the hatchet to all those government agencies that many people have not heard of and perhaps don’t care about – the EPA, FCC, CDC, etc. He has slashed budgets and appointed unqualified toadies to run them. Now, ...

Nashua, should you open your door?

The measure and list for all Nashua properties is starting now. All residents are being asked to open their doors and allow Vision Government Solutions entry to perform an inspection of the interior and exterior of the property. State law allows residents to say no to entry and still appeal ...

Letters to the Editor

Not acting in the best interest As a student in the Milford School District years ago, I learned that when you give someone your word, you honor it. It is a bond. When you sign a contract, you live up to its terms. Recently, we learned that Superintendent Jessica Huizenga and a majority of ...

We need to come together

The 2020 election will certainly be the most important one of our lives. It will determine if the Trump transformation of our constitutional republic into an authoritarian dictatorship will continue or not. If Trump wins in November, we will hear more pronouncements like, “I can do ...

Cartoon was reprehensible

As a military veteran with more than 30 years of active duty, I must say I was shocked and saddened to see the Branco political cartoon that appeared in the Feb. 18 Sunday Telegraph. I understand this was featured on the Opinion page and cartoonists are often deliberately provocative to get ...

Where is the humanity

Imagine this: It’s summer. It’s 100 degrees, and you can barely breathe. You’re coming out of the grocery store, and you see a dog’s face pressed against the inside of a car window, struggling to catch the next breath in a scorching car with the temperature of a furnace. If you have a ...
