My Turn: Obama has left United States with no good options

Tuesday, September 2, 2014

I served in the U.S. Marine Corps for more than 35 years, both active and reserve, including a deployment to Iraq in 2004 where I served as deputy legal counsel, Multi-National Force Iraq. I retired June 1 as a colonel. As I’m sure you can imagine, Marines don’t like to beat around the bush with double talk and non-answers. Every … 0

My Turn: Hemingway is the kind of leader the GOP needs

Tuesday, September 2, 2014

Being a good leader isn’t about your age or how many years of business experience you have. It’s about the kind of experience you have and what you can do with it.

Letter: Rubens is the easy choice

Monday, September 1, 2014

There are three prominent Republican candidates running for the U.S. Senate. I can’t imagine why anyone would vote for either of the two candidates who have recently come here from another state. My old friend Bob Smith is a nice guy and did an admirable job when he … 1

Letter: Choose Rubens over Brown

Monday, September 1, 2014

I see these points made against Scott Brown as a U.S. Senate candidate from New Hampshire – and I think my e-mail delivered me something very sound. “When nearly a quarter-million people were out of work in Massachusetts, Scott Brown is still the guy who voted against three … 0

Letter: Ardinger is most qualified

Monday, September 1, 2014

I plan to vote Kass Ardinger for state Senate because she has already proven that she is a superb public servant. She has worked tirelessly for the parents, school children and taxpayers of Concord. She has shown that she can work with others whose opinions she may not … 0

Letter: Feltes offers diversity

I knew Gerry Little when he served on the Weare Finance Committee. I have seen his conservative decisions made with a rational thought process and his dedicated commitment to that committee. Having been on that committee myself, I know that it does take a solid commitment to serve. … 0

Letter: Many reasons to vote blue

Monday, September 1, 2014

Remember when Barack Obama became president, the first time? Mitch McConnell said his goal for this president was to make him a “one-term president.” When the president won election for a second term, McConnell said his goal for the president and the Democrats was to make sure that … 2

Letter: Speak up about cancer

Monday, September 1, 2014

Many important decisions about cancer are made in the doctor’s office, but also in Congress. Government officials make decisions every day about health issues that affect your life. As a cancer victim, I know first-hand how important these decisions are to people here in New Hampshire. Cancer will … 0

Letter: Violent injustice

Monday, September 1, 2014

Imagine the hatred it takes to slaughter more than 2,100 Palestinians in Gaza as their bodies are violently shredded to pieces by sophisticated weaponry and munitions largely supplied by the United States. Of the Palestinian dead, 85.6 percent were civilians, including 440 children. People around the globe are … 3

Editorial: GOP should choose Rubens for Senate

Monday, September 1, 2014

Scott Brown may be dominating the headlines and the airwaves in the GOP’s quest to unseat Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen. But Jim Rubens is the candidate who offers New Hampshire Republicans the clearest view of where he stands and where the party should be going. Brown has been … 4
