Candidates must address Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s is a devastating disease, and that’s why I’m advocating with the Alzheimer’s Association and fighting this public health crisis. I was first introduced to Alzheimer’s Disease as a child when my grandmother was diagnosed, and in 2001, passed away as a result. In 2014, at ...

How to tackle climate change

In my view, we have only a few decades left to reduce greenhouse gas emissions without catastrophic climate destabilization. This can leave us trembling in our boots and reduced to turning our backs on any possible solution. But I say, let’s give it a try, for the sake of future generations, ...

We are in this together

As goes Australia, so goes New Hampshire?  As I sit here in New Hampshire, with almost no snow on the ground in January, all I can think of is what will future generations experience in this world. Australia is on fire now, California is still reeling from ever-expanding fire seasons, our ...

Why Bernie?

There is nothing more important for America and the world than to oust Donald Trump. Any one of our Democratic candidates – all very good men and women – would be miles above Trump, who is the gravest danger to democracy since World War II. While I had the honor of serving as a Bernie ...

A shining light

The news these days is terrible. All over. I remember the Clinton impeachment and how it dominated the news. I compare it to today’s coverage, and the media can’t even begin to cover it with all due justice for fear we will miss something else. Burning kangaroos, a shooting here and there, ...

Bennet is worth a look

With the passing of Jim Lehrer, there were tributes from friends and colleagues for this very good journalist who brought us the news without dramatic audio, flashy graphics or bias. Together with Robert MacNeil, Jim Lehrer founded what is now The PBS News Hour, which provides not just the ...

In our best interest

I, like many, took an oath of office. I’ve never unoathed, and thus feel compelled to comment on what is going on in our government. Five years of my Air Force career were spent in various assignments in Washington, including the Defense Intelligence Agency, the Air Staff and Military ...

Thank you, Rep. Kuster

On Monday, U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster joined 76 bipartisan cosponsors on the most effective and beneficial climate bill to ever get this far in Congress. It will stop climate pollution at the pace required and on a global scale, while growing America’s economy and helping the poor. This bill is ...

A uniquely American solution

A while back, I got a small piece of glass stuck in my foot and went to the doctor’s to have it removed. Several visits later, it was finally out. This small piece of bad luck cost me $800. That was my co-pay – my co-pay. Poll after poll shows that most Americans think our current ...

Politics and climate change

It’s an election year and all the top issues are being debated by the possible democrat incumbents and President Donald Trump. But on issue seems to be missing from the debate stage and polls: climate change. There’s only been one climate town hall back in September of 2019. Where the ...

Gabbard can repair America

On Jan. 14, Tulsi Gabbard hosted a roundtable discussion in Concord with award-winning foreign correspondent, Stephen Kinzer, and former presidential candidate, Dennis Kucinich. Kinzer stated: “All those programs that many of the progressive candidates want, realistically speaking, are ...

Use common sense

“Who are you going to vote for in the primary?” I repeatedly ask friends, relatives and members of various groups to which I belong. With few exceptions, they respond that they do not know. Most have a favorite whom they feel would reflect their values and be good for the country, BUT they ...

Be a part of the solution

In a recent letter to the editor, State Rep. Fred Douchette, a Republican, scolded those who have vehemently criticized our current President Donald J. Trump. He instructed them to show respect for the Office of the President. I think Mr. Doucette has overlooked the fact that President ...

Trust Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders advocates for policies that get to the root issues that matter to us-- low wages, economic inequality, infrastructure decay, environmental destruction, climate change, and inadequate healthcare. “Not me, us” is our call to action. Bernie’s honesty and consistency make him ...

Thank you

This letter is being written in gratitude of all the folks in my town, state and all the people who have worked steadfast supporting Community Rights for Local Self Government. The Community Rights Movement is all about strengthening the rights of self determination for a sustainable future ...

Vote for Joe Biden

The primary is almost here, and I know who I am voting for. I am “Riding with Biden,” because he is a good man who has a solid record and reputation for helping people. President Barack Obama chose Joe as his vice president because he knew Joe understands and cares about those of us who ...

Trump will remain president

The Telegraph continues to follow in the footsteps of the other members of the media who cannot fund any way to promote the many reasons to state the number of accomplishments that have been done by our president of the United States. They are, but not limited to CNN, the Washington Post, ...

What the pope is thinking

As the spokesman for the high command in the military, I’d like to make an interesting observation about one of the more than 10,000 minds read by the military. The pope at the Vatican does not believe in the first century Christian muthology that Jesus Christ is in some magical way partly ...

Time for Trump to go

I agree to disagree with a letter to the editor published in the Jan. 19 edition of The Telegraph. Mr. Doucette, if you are ashamed by the ruthless, mean-spirited, hateful, cruel, biased people who display themselves as having no civic pride, morals, ethics, decency or respect for our fellow ...

Humor in darkness

When it comes to bizarre behavior, we humans are very creative about defining “messed up.” As a former well-seasoned volunteer 911 first responder, I often thought I’d seen it all, but then about once monthly, I’d have to say, “obviously not yet!” And I did this for 35 years as ...
