Letter: Risky business

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

The Mount Sunapee lease saved two mountains – Mount Sunapee and Cannon Mountain. More than $7.5 million in lease payments have gone to Cannon Mountain to provide for a high-speed quad, snowmaking, grooming and other improvements. People come to Sunapee from various backgrounds: young families with children learning to ski; school programs; the inspirational adaptive ski program; seniors well into their 70s, 80s and even 90s; and many visitors from …

Letter: Competent and reasonable

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

I was delighted when I found out that my neighbor, Anne Baier, was running for one of the Bow-Dunbarton State House seats. She is a great listener and cares deeply about our community. She has lived in Bow for 27 years and devoted 11 years to serving on the Bow School Board. For six years, she was trustee of the Concord Community Music …

Letter: The straight ticket

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

This political season it seems all the Democrats in contention for re-election want to do is characterize their Republican opponents as the “bogeyman.” They don’t seem to want to run on their record. At least I haven’t noticed much political glorifying by Democrats so far. Understandable given the facts available to consider on their collective record. To me it’s not the Republicans that …

Letter: We need the Tea Party

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

To my fellow citizens: I hope that we as voters are getting informed and engaged because I think as all of us can see after the last election, there have been consequences. With the amount of scandals coming out of this administration and the passing of the buck …

Letter: Time to regain world’s respect

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

How in the world can you vote for the Democrats this upcoming election when President Obama himself recently said in a speech that voting for the Democrats is a vote for his policies. That should scare all of us who vote knowing that the liberals all march in …

Letter: Pick McConaha

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Jim McConaha’s involvement and accomplishments in this community are well documented. That is why I am supporting Jim for state representative in District 27 (Wards 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 7). Jim has served as the director of the USDA’s Farm Service Agency and a faculty member …

Letter: A skilled leader

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

I grew up in Bow and remember as a middle school student being assigned an ancient history project – to build a sarcophagus. We instantly sought the help of my friend’s stepdad, knowing how handy he could be. We assumed he would roll up his sleeves and put …

Letter: Enough is enough

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

To all politicians currently running for office: Please stop filling my shredder with your glossy print propaganda. I don’t even look at the mailings because most of what is printed on them is lies. Save your money and help out a homeless person. I have already decided who …

Letter: Georgevits is a solid leader

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Ken Georgevits, candidate for county commissioner, has been a long-term member of the Concord Kiwanis. Ken has held leadership positions in Kiwanis, including club president, division lieutenant governor, and has served on multiple occasions as a board member. Through these roles, Ken has long been an active participant …

Letter: Waiting for a retraction

Monday, October 20, 2014

I’m choosing to believe that Scott Brown is not racist. I assume that he’s not unintelligent. That leaves naivete – not a good quality for a senator. He suggested that “the Ebola crisis underscores the need to secure our borders.” One way to fuel prejudice and discrimination is …

Letter: A worthy trio

Monday, October 20, 2014

On Nov. 4, the voters of Canterbury and Loudon have the chance to place an impressive trio in the next state Legislature: Rep. Howard Moffett (District 9), Rep. Lorrie Carey (District 26) and George Saunderson (District 9). These three candidates for state representative embody the spirit of cooperation …

Letter: Dawson knows education

Monday, October 20, 2014

One of Laconia’s candidates for state representative has seen how vital education is to making our state strong and has a record of walking the walk, not just talking the talk. Tom Dawson’s mother was a lifelong teacher; his father a teacher and a principal. Tom earned a …

Letter: Lengthy service

Monday, October 20, 2014

I am really impressed by how long these candidates have served New Hampshire. Dianne Schuett, who is serving as the Pembroke-Chichester representative, was also clerk of a committee that eliminated 60 boards and commissions. Richard DeBold, a lifelong resident of New Hampshire, served 12 years as a Chichester …
