Letter: How about some solutions?

Wednesday, October 1, 2014

Have you seen it? I’m sure you have. Mudslinging ads on TV have trickled over to news stories and letters in the paper. Many Democrat candidates for office and liberal organizations are on an endless smear campaign of Republican candidates, regardless of whether running for state representative or U.S. Senate. Big oil this, Koch brothers that, blah, blah, blah. What’s big are the problems facing this country. What’s even bigger … 2

Letter: Abomination

Wednesday, October 1, 2014

If you are upset about ISIS beheading Westerners, then consider how we kill 3,000 American babies a day by abortion, which cuts off their arms and legs and then crushes their skulls. So who’s worse? God is not going to give America peace and prosperity as long as this abomination continues. STEPHANIE PADOVANO Concord … 0

Letter: Immorality isn’t funny

Wednesday, October 1, 2014

Regarding the Concord visit of Sarah Silverman (Monitor Local And State, Sept. 23), I am saddened that so many “women’s activists” are fond of saying, “It’s my body; it’s my choice.” Immorality is all around us and is seen as humor. I am one who cares about the dignity of the human body. There are many others who care, and that is why … 0

Letter: Underestimating voters

Monday, September 29, 2014

Recently on New Hampshire Public Radio, Scott Brown again stated he was in favor of the total recall of the Affordable Care Act. He said he wanted New Hampshire’s citizens who are eligible for the Expanded Medicaid program to keep their insurance. This means he is in favor … 9

Letter: Choose Hosmer

Monday, September 29, 2014

I’m supporting Sen. Andrew Hosmer in this election because he’s been a strong advocate for education, and he works tirelessly for the people in our community. As a mother of two public school children, I would like to see them receive a great education so they have the … 0

Letter: Obvious choices

Monday, September 29, 2014

The New Hampshire GOP has done us all a favor. At last they have made clear how thoroughly they intend to suppress women’s rights if they are elected. Finally they have told us how far they will go to stuff big government into the private lives of our … 12

Letter: None of the above

Monday, September 29, 2014

I have decided to listen to the politicians running for office and to take their advice. As a result, I won’t be voting for anyone. Isn’t it time to put an end to the ludicrous negative campaigning? If a candidate would stop the negative ads, give a realistic … 4

Letter: Feeding the problem

Monday, September 29, 2014

As I see it, the Islamic State terrorist army of approximately 40,0000 trained soldiers may have its battle objectives correct. Islamic State is a highly organized army and generates more than $3 million a day from sympathetic supporters. They attack like packs of mindless, subhuman animals using torture, … 4

Letter: A fresh view

Monday, September 29, 2014

As Brian Dobson’s opponent in the Republican primary, I couldn’t be happier that the race was won by a young man who offers a new perspective on what his generation can afford in terms of laws passed by the current Legislature. I was especially appalled that Maureen Mann … 0

Letter: Still hiding

Monday, September 29, 2014

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen’s 99 percent voting record with President Obama is certainly an embarrassment to New Hampshire. However, in my opinion, I am equally embarrassed that our senior U.S. senator is rightfully losing an argument about town hall meetings to a guy in a chicken suit. Seriously, Jeanne … 5

On behalf of the Belmont High School PTO board, we would like to express our sincere thanks to area businesses for their support of our second annual taco bar fundraiser at Belmont Old Home Day. The generosity of our local businesses helps the BHS PTO meet its goals … 0

Letter: Thank you, Ray Duckler

Sunday, September 28, 2014

I am writing to thank Ray Duckler for his article on my daughter, Aimee Sherman, and Katie Landridge about their efforts to spread awareness of pancreatic cancer and raise money for more research to find a early diagnosis tool and a cure for this dreaded cancer (Monitor front … 0

Letter: Conflict of interest

Sunday, September 28, 2014

I have a deep concern over the appointment of state officials to fill the public representation positions on the SEC, as mandated in SB 245. This is clearly not the intent of the bill in regard to public representation. Both candidates are legislators, one a career state senator … 0
