High schools: Belmont volleyball rallies from two-set hole to beat Inter-Lakes

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

The Belmont girls’ volleyball trailed Inter-Lakes, two sets to none and two points away from losing the third. What could have ended as a loss in straight sets instead became a come-from-behind 3-2 victory for the Red Raiders (5-9) over a higher-ranked Lakers team (8-6), one that all but clinched a spot for …

Preview capsule outlook of today’s high school tournament action

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Field hockey Division II first round No. 9 Hanover (6-7-1) at No. 8 Merrimack Valley (7-7-0), 3 p.m. head to head: MV blanked Hanover, 3-0, in late September. Notes: A 7-2 start to the season turned into a winless October for MV, but don’t read too much into that. The Pride’s last four games were against the division’s top three seeds, and Coach …

Letter: The wrong choice

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Please vote against Sen. Jeanne Shaheen. She is not a moderate. Shaheen has supported every radical left Obama/Reid policy. Obamacare was forced upon us in a dishonest, partisan manner. Shaheen said we could keep our doctor; not true. She voted for the nuclear option, changing our government for …

It is not necessary for me to point out all the disasters this president and the Congress have caused by poor leadership, as everyone is well aware of them. Nov. 4 is a very important election. The welfare of America is at stake. I am not voting for …

Letter: A fresh perspective

Sunday, October 19, 2014

In this political atmosphere of negative (and sometimes dishonest) campaigning, it is difficult to become excited about a visit to the polling booth. However, during his first term as a New Hampshire representative, Howard Moffett (not Mike Moffett – we ask that you not confuse the two, as …

Letter: Other side of school choice

Sunday, October 19, 2014

I found Jane Hunt’s article (Monitor Forum, Sept. 24) to be very narrow-minded when it comes to education. I also believe it is very negative and divisive, stating choice “further splinters our social infrastructure.” If we look at history and the many ways people have learned with many …

Letter: Poor Route 28

Sunday, October 19, 2014

As I drive around the state, I have to wonder why it seems the New Hampshire Highway Department has abandoned the repair and maintenance of busy Route 28 from the circle in Epsom to the circle in Alton. It seems it truly is the “bastard child” of the …

Letter: Chicken plant wrong for city

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Many people do not agree that the city should say yes to the chicken slaughterhouse plant. Property owners are concerned about their property values, because a person’s home is the most valuable thing that they ever buy. It seems that everyone who wants the chicken slaughterhouse does not …

With Hyundai having introduced its first fuel cell vehicle, the Tucson SUV, on July 1 and with Toyota to release its fuel cell sedan by the mid-2015 and Honda its fuel cell vehicle sometime in 2015, all in California, what’s keeping the Northeast and, in particular, New Hampshire, …

Letter: Wonderful care

Saturday, October 18, 2014

My mother recently passed away at the age of 103 at the Merrimack County Nursing Home. As amazing as it was that she reached such an age, the care and compassion she received during her entire stay at MCNH was equally amazing. Even as her condition deteriorated, making …
