Delegation stays silent

As I write, it is the eve of Independence Day. America’s iconic national anthem, the “Star-Spangled Banner,” originally was penned as a poem on the morning of September 14, 1814 by Francis Scott Key. Key was inspired to see America’s flag still waving, still standing over Fort ...

A triumph at Mount Rushmore

If nothing else, President Donald Trump's July Fourth speech at Mount Rushmore clarified the battle lines of our culture war. The New York Times called the speech "dark and divisive," while an Associated Press headline declared, "Trump pushes racial division." A Washington Post story said ...

Who’s ‘divisive’?

As near as I can tell it began in 1995, when Republicans won control of the House of Representatives for the first time in 40 years and captured a Senate majority. By "it" I mean the accusation that Republicans and especially conservatives (not always the same) are "divisive." One reads and ...

I want to ride my bicycle…

While recently shopping to become a future member of the e-bike movement, I could hear the Queen hit Bicycle Race churning in my head. Several years ago, that tune would continuously swirl from ear to ear as I prepared for my nightly ride, doing up to 20 miles per night on my newly purchased ...

Where do we want to go from here?

Independence Day is here and this year we celebrate our country’s 244th birthday. America is in a time of major transition and transformation right now. We are facing a public health crisis, along with challenges in our economy and a powerful social justice movement. Together these events ...

A great opportunity for Hudson

I’m as sad as anyone to see the beautiful Green Meadows Golf Course close after so many years but as a Hudson resident we knew it was inevitably going to happen and that property was going to change. The family that operates the golf course has been trying to sell the property for years but ...

Don’t confirm Scott Mason

Gov. Chris Sununu passes up several well-qualified professionals by nominating Scott Mason for Executive Director of NHF&G. The NHF&G Department is a 200-plus person organization with seven divisions and four regional offices. The Department has annual budget of approximately ...
