Dysfunctional Aldermans/Alderwomans Meeting

I tuned in to the Board of Aldermen meeting last Sunday. At first, I thought I landed on a pilot for an upcoming sitcom. Then I remembered “All In The Family” is off the air. The meeting was a demonstration of bruised egos, vocal outbursts, bitterness and gender-phobic ...

Bachman family grateful for support

On Dec. 23, our family’s life was turned upside down when our father, husband and grandfather was senselessly killed by an inattentive driver. Due to a moment of carelessness, for the remainder of our years Christmas will only serve as a grim reminder of the loss of our beloved ...

Alderman: Process was messy but productive

Sunday’s organizational meeting was not unlike labor pains in that, it was painful, but it gave birth to the 2014-15 Board of Aldermen. It wasn’t pretty; it was quite messy, yet the results were truly a win-win for the board and city of Nashua. Since four members of the ...

Aldermen acted with pettiness

To the 2014 Nashua Board of Aldermen: Please check your egos at the door. I watched the inauguration of the BOA on Sunday and was appalled at the pettiness of some of the new members with regard to committee assignments. I am sure that board President David Deane put a great deal of thought ...

Climate change may be topic that leaves them cold

SOS reply to the passengers and crew of the Russian reseach ship, stuck in the ice in Antarctica: “How’s that global warming workin’ out for you folks?” George Keiper Nashua

Vote against license-plate scanners in NH

On Jan. 8, there will be a vote in the New Hampshire House (HB 675) to allow license plate readers in the state. Currently, the only license plate readers authorized for use are at E-ZPass toll booths. License plate readers are a serious civil liberty and privacy concern. The American Civil ...

Snowden is a national hero

The state of our nation is a sad one when a hero like Edward Snowden has to flee the country to avoid persecution from big government. The National Security Agency and the federal government is out of control, and the propagandist media machine just helps to perpetuate the whole slippery slope ...

Marijuana should be decriminalized in NH

Twenty years ago, I nearly lost a family member to marijuana. He is one of the 2-3 percent of the population who are hyper-reactive to pot and his habitual use in college reduced him over time to a near-vegetative state. Had he continued to smoke, he would have likely remained permanently ...

Democrats can’t have it both ways

Having read Kevin Landrigan’s piece, essentially criticizing the super PAC ad exposing Jeanne Shaheen’s position on the Affordable Care Act, I am struck by the constant effort to denigrate the GOP while ignoring the continuous attempt by the Democratic Party and the Obama ...

Rivier will be the poorer when it loses Art & Music department

In a Sunday Telegraph feature in December, the president of Rivier University stated that Rivier was not cutting back on anything, unlike many schools. It is surprising how quickly the closing of Rivier’s Art and Music Department, scheduled for spring 2014, is forgotten. Although the ...

Duck killing State Rep.

Rep. David Campbell should not be a state representative. Anyone with no respect for any living thing has no business representing anyone. Really, the ducks would not move? People, keep your kids out of this man’s way. Please get this poor excuse of a state representative out of ...

She’ll remember the ‘Crowne Six’

I don’t accept Rep. David Campbell’s apology (which looks like a futile attempt to save his political career) for viciously killing the ducks at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Nashua. He has angered a voluminous constituency that will remember the “Crowne ...

Who does David Brooks think he is?

Who does David Brooks think he is? In his article “We are in a golden age of skiing – but it won’t last” (Dec. 20) he tells us he firmly believes in global warming. We are not sure why, he just does. Later in the article he states, “some ...

Physician backs expanded Medicaid

I am writing this in support of the recent article by Rep. Cindy Rosenwald, concerning the benefits to our state of the expansion of Medicaid; As a physican, taxpayer and resident of New Hampshire, I think the expansion of Medicaid is critical to the welfare of our citizens. We are all, as a ...

In favor of labeling so she knows what’s in her food

As a consumer and cook, I definitely want to know where my food comes from and whether or not it’s genetically modified. I am not persuaded by anyone’s insistence that GMOs are harmless; we simply cannot know for many more years, and if the squirrels won’t eat ...

Anything would be an improvement

Your Sunday guest commentary from Paul Bauer of Newfields (Dec. 29) leaves the reader suffering from an overdose of nonsensical bias which has historically been the prescription of choice from Democrats. He castigates Scott Brown for wishing to unseat the lackluster, (Obama cheerleader) Jeanne ...

She’s ashamed of Rep. Campbell’s actions

I am absolutely appalled and enraged by the front page story in The Sunday Telegraph, regarding state Rep. David Campbell and his blatant disregard for a group of ducks in the road at the Crowne Plaza Hotel last week. Who deliberately runs over a group of ducks with their car? I am ashamed ...

First the ducks” what comes next?

Regarding the ducks that were run over at the Crowne Plaza Hotel: First it was ducks. What’s next? Three legged dogs? Senior citizens in wheelchairs? All because “they wouldn’t get out of the way.” If you don’t get out of the way, you too, may ...

Broken-hearted for the ducks

It broke my heart to read about the killing of innocent ducks at the Crowne Plaza Hotel (Dec. 29). This says all we need to know about state Rep. David Campbell – no morals, no ethics, no heart. I will be sure to make a contribution to whomever should run against him. A big shame ...

Texting editorial ignored privacy issues

The Telegraph editorial “Time to stop the texting charade” (Dec. 30) was very eloquent and persuasive in arguing for a better law to hopefully limit the growing carnage. But it failed to grapple with the real privacy issues. Its easy to say “there ought to be a ...
