Column smacked of ignorance, arrogance

Joe Konopka’s guest commentary on the Ferguson riots (“Why don’t we have police riots in New Hampshire,” Aug. 17) smacks of the ignorance and arrogance one would expect a white person living in lily-white New Hampshire to display when attempting to ...

Market Basket golden goose is dead

Is Arthur S. Demoulas the modern day Nero, emperor of Rome? He is on Lake Winnipesaukee as the Market Basket food chain implodes around him. He has hurt local farmers, bakers and a multitude of suppliers, customers and employees. He will be dancing and partying as if there are no cares at all. ...

This new Gilded Age threatens our country

This new Gilded Age is a threat to country Regarding the three Market Basket board members urging an end to the standoff: We are a group that meets regularly on Wednesdays at the Church of Our Saviour in Milford to discuss the gospel for the upcoming Sunday. Recently we have been considering ...

Is ISIS on the way to America?

Is ISIS on the way to America? If you think it is not going to happen under the current administration, you had better wake up. Our borders are wide open, and who knows? ISIS militants might already be in this country. The UN is useless, our president is not qualified to be our leader, and the ...

War is no video game

Don’t believe lies of Americans for Prosperity

This week, our household received three lie-filled fliers from the Koch brothers-funded organization Americans for Prosperity. They made statements implying that Sen. Jeanne Shaheen’s vote to support Obamacare was the reason patients were given limited access to a number of hospitals ...

Market Basket customers have voted

When a hard-fought election is over, no matter how strongly a candidate thinks he or she should have won, the results sink in and the person is forced to put on a happy face while conceding defeat. Often, it is a matter of only a few hours between visualizing being sworn in and the realization ...

Shaheen and Shea-Porter are extreme liberals

Granite Staters pride themselves on independence. Regardless of the elected official, none of us agree nearly 100 percent of the time with any politician. However, we in the 1st Congressional District are stuck with a U.S. Senator and representative who are completely comfortable with voting ...

Arthur T. is worth keeping

Is Market Basket a vibrant and viable business? Is the business model developed by Arthur T. solid? If the answers are yes, why is present management wanting change? We do know their consistent intent has been to increase profits to shareholders. Employees know exactly how that would be ...

Not too late to salvage Renaissance waterfront

David Brooks’ update on the Renaissance project (“Changes made for development,” The Telegraph, Aug. 9) offered a faint glimmer of hope that the project’s current neglect of needed waterfront amenities can be reversed. Ryan Porter (no relation), the ...

A better candidate for Republicans

When faced with two good candidates for the 2nd Congressional District to defeat Ann McLane Kuster, one must look at subtle differences like a candidate’s support for the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative. Gary Lambert truly believes in the end goals of RGGI, as shown on his ...

Cousins need to work out dispute

It is time for the two cousins to sit down and work this Market Basket problem out. They need to work together for the good of all. If 15,000 people rally for “Artie T.” he must be doing something right. Arthur S. should put his pride aside and work with his cousin ...

No mystery behind the appeal of Arthur T.

The Christmas movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” is an apt analogy for the Market Basket struggle. We rejoice when good guy George Bailey’s “put people first” approach to life triumphs over bad guy Potter’s unfeeling, greedy and ...

Support effort to reduce student debt

Jeanne Shaheen’s recent campaign ad regarding student loan debt (Simplifying Access to Student Loan Information Act) should be taken seriously. Many new teachers’ starting salaries are less than $40,000 a year. Some may think that is a lot of money, given that school is ...

Supports Avard for state Senate

As we are well aware, state elections are right around the corner. I am asking everyone to support Kevin Avard in his run for state Senate. He is a candidate we can trust. A candidate who will and always has, put the citizens of New Hampshire first. He is a former state representative ...

Tour of Parkway site was encouraging

Last week, I was pleased to see Sen. Jeanne Shaheen tour the Broad Street parkway in Nashua with state Sens. Peggy Gilmour and Bette Lasky, Mayor Donnalee Lozeau and other local officials. It is refreshing to know that elected officials not only analyze policy before casting their votes, but ...

Column only told part of the story

Your guest commentary (“Give military women equal treatment” Aug. 4) by Judy Atwood Bell is only partially true and Sen. Jeanne Shaheen’s bill is a thinly veiled proposal for the availability of abortion in military medical facilities. Military women and female ...

Liberty duplicity hurts Hollis

Liberty Utilities is fairly new to New Hampshire and wants to expand its business in the state, primarily the Concord area. To do that, Liberty has joined forces with Kinder Morgan, a pipeline building company, to run a pipeline diagonally through the town of Hollis. Up to this point, Liberty ...

Gov. candidate turns to scare tactics

How sad that Republican candidate for governor, Walt Havenstein, having little to offer of his own accomplishments, has chosen to turn to scare tactics to discredit the stellar record of Gov. Maggie Hassan. Havenstein has accused Gov. Hassan of planning to raise taxes, an accusation certain to ...
