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 the inability to get things done, one where working across party lines for the good of all has been abandoned and one … 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 know that left untreated, mental illnesses often end in suicide. Just as cancer was once … 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 away from them, where would they be? How many times have I checked out at … 0

Letter: A different kind of party

Sunday, July 20, 2014

Tea Partyer Ann Kolifrath lets us know us how angry she is about a Monitor cartoon that failed to coincide with her views (Monitor letters, July 16). Given our freedom of the press, I’m sure there are periodicals whose cartoons are acceptable to her, however offensive to others. … 1

Letter: Condemn DIME bombs

Sunday, July 20, 2014

Letter: Feltes gives voice to voiceless

Sunday, July 20, 2014

I encourage all voters in Concord, Hopkinton, Henniker and Warner to learn more about New Hampshire Senate candidate Dan Feltes.

Letter: Pappas earned another term

Sunday, July 20, 2014

Letter: Circus no fun for animals

Sunday, July 20, 2014

While the circus may seem amusing to some people, it is never fun for the animals that are being exploited. The two elephants in attendance at the Kelly Miller Circus that recently performed in Bristol and Hillsboro were Lisa, who is 49 years old, and Traci, who is … 1

Letter: Climate change wisdom

Sunday, July 20, 2014

After recently chastising the Monitor (Monitor letters, July 3) regarding a recent editorial, “Everybody has a church in the woods” (Monitor Opinion, July 1), I must complement the paper on following up with “Climate change for beginners” (Monitor Forum, July 13) and the ensuing letters generated by this … 1

Editorial: On casinos, it's best to listen to The Donald

Sunday, July 20, 2014

The annual attempt to convince the Legislature to adopt casino gambling has become as certain as the changing of the seasons, so we fully expect the battle to continue. But Gov. Maggie Hassan, perennial casino proponent Sen. Lou D’Allesandro, and the rest of the easy-money crowd should slow … 16

My Turn: Blueprint for a stronger economy

Sunday, July 20, 2014

In order to move New Hampshire’s economy forward, it’s not just about creating jobs. It’s about creating good jobs that allow families to reach and remain in the middle class.
