Soros: Crusader for human rights

Do not believe the conspiracy theories currently circulating about George Soros, the internationally-know billionaire philanthropist. Phony claims include, undermining governments worldwide, plotting with and funding opposition groups to overthrew legitimate governments, and most recently, ...

John Lewis’ legacy

Since the George Floyd murder in May, the heinousness of which finally seems to have struck a major chord throughout the heart of White America, a prevailing question bandied about from our print media, many political speeches to the massed crowds of shouting demonstrators on our streets has ...

The irony of Trump’s new strategy

As he falls further behind Biden, Trump has come up with what his staff considers a winning strategy. Rather than responding to the nation’s Governors and Mayors for help with the Covid Pandemic. He is responding by attacking the Constitution’s first amendment’s clause: “Right of the ...

Single data points

Of polls, expert opinion, second order questions, and single data points. As we slide into the political season, you are going to see many polls, opinions, interviews and statistics. Let me warn you now. Polls Polls used to be taken to judge what people were thinking. Most today are ...

Coming together

Unfortunately, we are now, in late July, having this discussion on how school reopening will be structured with only a month or so before classes are set to start. This is because our elected leaders in Washington and Concord have dragged their heels and then completely abdicated their ...

Vote absentee!

It’s the law now! Every New Hampshire voter with concerns about Covid-19 can vote by absentee ballot for the upcoming elections, the Sept. 8 primary and the Nov. 3 general election. This is welcome news to those with health, age, or other factors who are more vulnerable to COVID-19. The ...

I am a CASA GAL

I am a CASA GAL. I am a volunteer who advocates for children in a case of abuse or neglect, where their future depends on what is in their best interest. I am one of over 500 residents of the state of New Hampshire who have undergone extensive training ( 40 hours +) to support the wishes ...

Do your job!

“Do your job!” These three words supposedly sum up the work ethos of Bill Belichick. On the eve of the 2016 presidential election, Belichick sent candidate Trump a letter that stated, “Your leadership is amazing. I have always had tremendous respect for you, but the toughness and ...

Voting just eight weeks away!

When Secretary of State Bill Gardner created the Select Committee on Emergency Election Support for COVID-19, I rejoiced that New Hampshire would do right - as we have in all elections. The deluge of testimony and letters received by the Select Committee demonstrated that NH citizens are ...

Put N.H. families first

Gov. Chris Sununu is nothing if not consistent. During this deadly pandemic that has hurt so many, physically, emotionally, and economically, I had hoped Gov. Sununu might see things through a new lens when it comes to supporting NH families. Last summer he bragged about his record 57 vetoes. ...

Dear Ward 9 neighbors

My name is Paula Desjardins Moran and I am running for Ward 9 NH State Representative. As many of you know, the New Hampshire House of Representatives is made up of 400 members state wide, making it one of the largest legislative bodies in the world. In accordance with the NH way of fiscal ...

Climate change still a serious threat

Climate change is still a looming threat that hangs over all of us. And for us to combat this growing issue we need a clear plan. The Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act will help to fight climate change while also aiding the economy. With this plan a fee will be placed on carbon at ...

This is NOT who we are

“Voice” ... Webster’s Dictionary explains it as “an instrument or medium of expression” We all have one. Of late, I confess, we’ve been careless. Recently, Dianna Ploss, with the luxury of a public voice, stole mine! Her ugly diatribe, proudly videod, harassing workingmen won much ...

Biden vs. Trump on the environment

Donald Trump and Joe Biden have outlined their approaches to environment, infrastructure and jobs. Trump, ignoring our need for clean air and water, says he will eliminate environmental reviews of highways, pipelines and power plants under the 1969 National Environmental Policy Act. In doing ...

Cancel movement?

I’ll consider cancelling anything only after the original US political party of slavery, the Democrat Party, is cancelled. The Democrat Party advocated for slavery and voted with southern states to secede from the Union in opposition to making all men free and equal. So, according to the ...

Don’t destroy Hudson

In case you have not heard about the “Hudson Boulevard,” it is a four-lane highway proposed by the Hudson Planning Board and the Nashua Regional Planning Commission that would wind from Wason Road up through the Musquash Conservation land and connect to Route 111. This proposed project is ...

Re-elect Jeanne Shaheen

Six years ago New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen was opposed in her successful re-election bid here by former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown. And it looks like history is repeating itself in 2020 as another out-of-stater, the very deep-pocketed Bryant “Corky” Messner, fresh from the ...

So infantile a president

We have so infantile a President that it becomes world news when he at last, in mid-July with his “not me!” going on since March, wears a mask to protect himself and others from coronavirus. It’s like news within a family when a toddler is “finally potty trained!” There’s a shared ...

Ensure comprehensive coverage

In the time of a global pandemic, requiring comprehensive and equitable health care coverage has never been more critical. As a woman who relies on the New Hampshire health care system, I am writing in support of the Reproductive Health Parity Act, which will require commercial and ACA ...

Not Hudson’s Best Option

A previous writer stated that the proposed Hudson Logistics Center is “the best option we will ever get for our town.” Given the negative impacts a project of this magnitude will have on Hudson, I for one don’t want to settle for this project just because it happens to be the one on the ...
