Letter: A warning for GOP

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

I have voted Republican for most of my adult years. One recent exception was in 2012, when I voted straight Democratic for the state offices. I did this because I was disgusted by the news articles describing the antics of Bill O’Brien and his minions in the state Legislature. Granted, the news may have been slanted, but this then speaks to O’Brien’s inability to manage the media, which to me …

Penacook man killed in crash was a father, hiker, musician

Monday, November 3, 2014

A Penacook man was killed in a car crash Saturday in Salisbury after he veered across Route 4 and struck a tree. Warren Leary IV, 24, was traveling eastbound at a “very, very high speed” in a 35-mph zone when his 2001 Chevy Impala hit a large tree hard enough that the engine was ripped from the car, said State Trooper Max King, …

Letter: Avoiding the facts

Sunday, October 26, 2014

I couldn’t agree more with Don Mason’s statement about the oversimplification and omission of “facts” that predominate election year advertising (Sunday Monitor letters, Oct. 19).

Merrimack Valley (2-13-1) closed out its season with a loss on the road. Freshman Tim Bortnick scored his first varsity goal at the end of the first half to keep MV in the game, 2-1, at the break, but the Cavaliers (12-1-3) scored on a free kick and …

Advantage Bow, one more time

Sunday, October 21, 2012

The story remains the same. Just like in last year's championship game and in this year's season opener, the Bow High field hockey team was just a little bit better than rival Merrimack Valley yesterday. The Falcons scored late in the first half and survived a late scare …

Con-Val 47, Merrimack Valley 0

Saturday, October 20, 2012

A tough first half for the Pride (0-8) escalated into a difficult road loss against the Cougars (3-5) on Thursday. Freshman Colby Weyant provided a strong second half and finished with 13 tackles. Ivan Niyomugabo also played well on defense. Offensively, Tom Schneider led MV with 38 yards …

Bright attitudes at cross-country championship

Saturday, October 20, 2012

PENACOOK - Wet weather made for a muddy course and less than ideal conditions for the 36th annual Capital Area Cross Country Championships, but it didn't discourage Concord High. The Crimson Tide embraced it. Going into the meet with a positive attitude and enthusiasm, the Concord cross country …
