Letter: An important contribution

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Thank you for printing Robert Azzi’s contribution to the discussion on the situation in Israel/Palestine (Sunday Monitor Forum, July 27). It is a viewpoint that most American papers fail to represent adequately. As someone who has been involved with that area since 1960, I have seen great changes, mostly for the worst, especially after 1967 and the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. My only concern was that … 0

Letter: Fresh faces in GOP

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Attention Republican and independent voters: There’s a chance to vote in some new and energetic faces up and down the Republican primary ballot on Sept. 9. Republicans’ best choices to top the ticket this fall are Andrew Hemingway for governor and Marilinda Garcia for Congress. Their youth and energy and principled experience will appeal to a wide range of voters. Republicans want to … 0

Letter: Be proud, Granite State

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

I had the pleasure of attending the historic signing of two important bills related to paycheck equity called the Paycheck Fairness Act by Gov. Maggie Hassan on July 22. The signing of HB 1188 and SB 207 closes important loopholes for equal pay with the sole purpose of strengthening New Hampshire’s economy since statistics have shown that women make up more than 40 … 1

My Turn: It’s time to take a hard look at climate hyperbole

Letter: Ardinger will change narrative

Friday, July 25, 2014

Kass Ardinger is my candidate in the Democratic primary for state senator. I ask that you consider her as your candidate – Dan Feltes supporters as well! Her views and positions are clearly stated at KassArdingerforNHSenate.com. Why? The current narrative surrounding politics is one of disenchantment, one of … 0

Letter: A chance to walk the talk

Friday, July 25, 2014

Regarding “A garden for those lost” (Monitor article, July 6): Because we would never think to talk about such a touchy topic as mental illness around the dinner table, much less admit to ourselves that we might need to make an appointment with a psychiatrist, let it be … 0

Letter: The downside of technology

Friday, July 25, 2014

Change! It is evident that the world is changing. In some cases it is good, but sometimes it is not. Where will the youth of today be five or 10 years from now? Their education is based around computers. If you were to take a computer or iPhone … 1

Letter: Reckless or human?

Friday, July 25, 2014

I read with interest the article on prescription long-acting opiate pain medications (Monitor front page, July 16), and that “in certain respects” we are among the highest prescribers in the nation. In the article, it was noted that Gov. Maggie Hassan and U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte are quite … 0

Friday, July 25, 2014

We are writing to enthusiastically support Dan Feltes to be our next state senator in District 15, representing Henniker, Warner, Hopkinton and Concord. Dan has a master’s degree in public policy from Georgetown University and law degree from the University of Iowa. He has committed himself to public … 1

Letter: Shaheen cares about veterans

Friday, July 25, 2014

My late husband, James Goodwin, a veteran of the Korean conflict, and I have always looked to Sen. Jeanne Shaheen to provide the support and leadership needed for veterans affairs. Throughout her political career, going back to her time as a state senator, then governor and now as … 1

Letter: In defense of traders

Friday, July 25, 2014

I wish to correct a few points made by Mark Connolly in his recent commentary (Monitor Forum, July 12). While he is correct that “gaming” does occur in today’s marketplace and that it should be rooted out, it is incorrect to assert that abusive practices are limited to … 0

My Turn: Atlantic City offers a skewed view of casinos

Friday, July 25, 2014

The debate about casino gambling has hit the silly point when this newspaper suggests following the lead of none other than Donald Trump (Monitor Opinion, July 20). As a matter of fact, it is way beyond silly to tell legislators to thumb their noses at $120 million in … 30

My Turn: Democrats clinging to Hobby Lobby myth

Friday, July 25, 2014

Democrats are facing stiff head winds as they head into this fall’s elections. They can’t win on the issues, so they’re trying to scare and confuse voters. We’re seeing that strategy play out right now in New Hampshire. Democrats are spreading myths that a recent Supreme Court decision … 3

Editorial: State needs to keep an eye on its children

Friday, July 25, 2014

New Hampshire is slipping, and its most vulnerable residents are the ones at risk. No, we’re not talking about the mentally ill, or the homeless, or populations that the state has sometimes disregarded in the past. Instead, we’re talking about the state’s children. The Kids Count index, produced … 5
