We are failing to meet climate goals

It has been five years since the Paris Climate Agreement was created and put forward climate goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and halt the rise of the overall temperature of the Earth. But as a collective, we have failed to meet these goals. The nations that have signed this agreement, ...

Realistic governance

If you live in the towns of Milford, Hollis, Mont Vernon and New Boston (House District 40), one of your New Hampshire state representatives is Keith Ammon, who is a member of the Free State movement, those libertarian-leaning folks who moved to New Hampshire from elsewhere expressly to ...

Three priorities for 2021

I am humbled and honored that the voters of southern New Hampshire, from Rindge to Nashua, have sent me back to represent them in the New Hampshire Senate. As we begin a new term, I want to share my top three legislative priorities with you. First among these is helping our state’s economy ...

Which election was rigged?

Poor Donald Trump. He has never been in an “un-rigged” election. In October 2016, a few days before FBI Director Comey plunged that email dagger into the heart of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, Donald Trump complained, without evidence, that the election was rigged. In favor of whom, he ...

Books for Christmas giving

I’ve just read Holderness resident Ty Gagne’s new book, The Last Traverse. I bought additional copies for Christmas gifts, going to both Gibson’s in Concord and Innisfree Bookstore in Meredith. Other New Hampshire bookstores should carry it. Ty specializes for his career in risk ...

Give it a rest

Donald Trump and his most ardent supporters keep saying Biden stole the election from Trump because of fraud and illegal voting machine dumps. This is ridiculous. If as a Democrat, I ‘messed’ with tabulations, don’t you think I would have gotten rid of Republican Senate Majority Leader ...

Thanksgiving words of gratitude

I’m writing to express my gratitude to Fred Manheck, owner of Celebrations Catering, who for many years has served a beautiful and bountiful Thanksgiving meal to our residents at Mary’s House located in Nashua. Each year we send him a thank-you letter expressing our appreciation. This year, ...

Unconscionable

Rousting and displacing people who are homeless without a clear plan for where they are going and support services is unconscionable. While tents on the courthouse lawn may not be attractive; it is nothing compared to the ugliness of a society that does not fully support the people, ...

Elections were fair and free

On Nov. 3, I was honored to be one of more than a hundred volunteers working at my town’s polling place. I was registering voters – those new to voting, and those new to the town. I served citizens who were Republican, Independent, Libertarian, Democrat and Undeclared. All approached the ...

Sununu disappoints on COVID

On Friday the 13th we learned that yesterday NH had a record 323 new COVID-19 cases. Surely we will see new records every day. Yesterday saw 4 new hospitalizations, 3 deaths and a record 2,538 active cases. No mask mandate from the Governor. And now reduced contact tracing! Governor Sununu ...

Scouting for Food

As we approach Thanksgiving, nearly 3,000 scouts across New Hampshire recently participated in the Daniel Webster Council’s 33rd annual “Scouting for Food” event. In this very difficult year when the COVID pandemic has created unique challenges for all of us, it is more important than ...

Truth decay

In the November 15, 2020 Telegraph there was a letter to the editor that boggled my mind - the writer was claiming that BLM and Antifa have cost taxpayers billions of dollars for riot damage, that Democrat-led cities are begging for relief because of mismanagement, that dead people voted, that ...

Thank you

With the final votes tallied in the recount for State Senate District 11, it is now clear that our campaign for re-election came up just a little short. I want sincerely to thank everyone who joined us in this effort – especially the volunteers who have been the guiding force of this ...

Appreciation

Friends of Veterans would like to thank all our donors, sponsors and players who made our annual golf fundraiser at the Baker Hill Golf Club a tremendous success. This fundraiser along with the many grants we receive will allow us the opportunity to make this challenging year the fourth ...

Battered and bruised

A genuine American hero is on the verge of political defeat. He is being overwhelmed by a diabolical array of opposing forces that include wealthy liberals, media moguls, the political elite, and the 4th estate; forces that would not, could not, tolerate his intrusion into their arena, his ...

Affordable housing

With a vacancy rate of less than 1% in Nashua, there is a dire need for all housing, but especially for people who earn less than 50% of the median income for the area. This is not new. City studies and proposals as far back as 1987 and as recently as last month have affirmed this need. It is ...

Biden and climate change

Last Saturday, it was announced that Joe Biden will be the 46th President of the United States. With a gain of 290 electoral votes, the former VP has secured victory for the democratic party. One of Biden’s biggest struggles he will face when in office will be climate change. Lucky the ...

Let the process go on

Amazing over a week after the election not a single Trump voter has burned down or vandalized a building, statues remain intact, not riots have taken place and government property is still in working order. Since 2016 the democrats, BLM, Antifa and other groups have costs taxpayers billions of ...

World Language Teachers

Even though we will not see each other during an in-person World Language Teacher’s Conference this November, we want you to know that we at NHAWLT still see you. We see you trying to make your language as meaningful, fun and interesting to your students as possible. We see you teaching ...

A wonderful night

Republicans who watched the Biden-Harris acceptance speeches and saw this compassionate, truthful, intelligent and honest duo are wondering “How come we can’t get candidates like that. We get a showman who says “Who’s going to pay for the wall, or that North Korea is no longer a nuclear ...
