Thursday, September 11, 2014

When Tim and Diane Mueller first proposed their lease of the Mount Sunapee Ski Area, I was on the board of directors of the local chamber. As president during their startup years, I was encouraged by their vision. Over those years I saw them transform a lethargic and …

Letter: The trouble with ads

Monday, September 8, 2014

I dislike TV and internet political ads. First, these spots never tell the whole truth. They lie mostly by omission. A person can’t reduce complicated issues to 30-second “informative” blurbs without omitting a great many details. Some ads lie outright, omitting the omission. Secondly, the real messages in …

Letter: Voice of reason

Monday, August 11, 2014

A breath of fresh air was Michael Sununu’s article “It’s time to take a hard look at climate hyperbole” (Monitor Forum, July 26).

Letter: Leave Salisbury alone

Sunday, May 11, 2014

I have read article after article criticizing the town of Salisbury for not having a police department. After reading the editorial “Salisbury needs its own police force” (Monitor, May 6), I’ve decided I’ve had a belly full of other people trying to tell the residents of Salisbury how …

Editorial: Salisbury needs its own police force

Monday, May 5, 2014

In 2010, Salisbury’s two-man police force quit, citing a hostile working environment. Since then, residents have relied on state police and neighboring towns to respond to traffic accidents and all complaints, great and small. The time has come for voters to put an end to this public safety …
