Letter: Luneau solid on the issues

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

As the Nov. 4 general election nears, I urge you to consider David Luneau, independent candidate for the state House of Representatives, Merrimack County District 10. When Rep. Gary Richardson indicated to me that he would not seek re-election, I immediately thought of David. After graduating from MIT, he started his own technology company. It is that spirit of risk-taking and starting something new that draws me to David. I …

Letter: Keep Jews in mind

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Many Jews who otherwise do not attend worship services do attend services or observe these days with introspection, reflection and prayer. We seek to make amends with those whom …

Letter: Time to party, Concord

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Realizing that 2015 is my 50th year since graduating from CHS, I recently pulled out of my archives a book called At the Bend in the River, which was written to commemorate Concord’s bicentennial in 1965. It then dawned on me that my original home city will be …

Letter: Chicken plant wrong for city

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Recently, state Sen. Sam Cataldo of Farmington signed a “Pledge of Allegiance” to Americans for Prosperity, a Virginia-based, Koch brothers founded and funded, right-wing political advocacy group. This means that Cataldo now cannot vote for any bill, no matter how beneficial it would be for New Hampshire citizens, …

Letter: Falling behind Massachusetts

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Whether you worry more about the environment or the economy, reducing fossil fuel use in New Hampshire matters a lot. It’s time to ask local political candidates what they plan to do about it. Most people recognize that fossil fuel use threatens to devastate our environment. But fossil …
