Letter: Time’s up

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

Since it is almost three weeks since the election, all of the political signage should have been removed. I am referring specifically to the Garcia, Guay and Burns signs that are littering Exit 1 in Bow and elsewhere around town. These signs are on the state and town right of way, not private property. There may be others out there, but these are the ones I see daily. HELAINE KANEGSBERG …

Letter: The wrong headline

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

It’s been a while, but I see that the writer of the sub headline for an article who doesn’t read the article is back working at the Monitor. The latest example of his or her talent is on page A6 of the Monday, Nov. 24, edition describing an article by Michael Birnbaum from the Washington Post. The first sentence of the second paragraph …

Letter: Local food, locals sources

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

This is in response to the brewing opinions in regard to the Fournier Foods processing plant. It seems to me after observing the process for some time that some of us take a prejudicial view and overlook the contribution that growth makes to our communities. I believe that processing plants bring us closer to local food from local sources. We should begin to …

Editorial: Kansas has a few lessons for New Hampshire

Letter: Let Sunapee grow

Monday, November 24, 2014

I am writing this letter to support the expansion of Mount Sunapee into the West Bowl. Mount Sunapee State Park and ski area was created in the late 1940s while trying to salvage a lake economy suffering from a consistent decrease in rail travel as people took more …

Letter: O’Brien needs to be a leader

Sunday, November 23, 2014

Oh no! Here we go again. Bill O’Brien again elected as House speaker. Didn’t the representatives learn anything the last time around when he made New Hampshire a laughingstock nationwide? I hope O’Brien will at least attempt to be a leader this time around. The threats, shoving and …

Letter: Why Facebook?

Sunday, November 23, 2014

Your new procedures for leaving comments has really cut down the number of comments. You must have a Facebook account? Why? What on Earth does that have to do with it? I haven’t figured out why, after writing a couple of comments several weeks ago, I can no …

Letter: Sticking to our principles

Sunday, November 23, 2014

Rep. Barbara French and I would like to thank the voters in Bradford and Henniker who put their confidence in us to move New Hampshire forward and protect the valuable work we accomplished over the last two years. We know the coming legislative session will have challenges, but …

Letter: Medicare changes

Sunday, November 23, 2014

Seniors and other Medicare beneficiaries should be aware that this year is an important one to pay attention to their Medicare coverage options during the open enrollment period, which ends Dec. 7. And that’s because of the Affordable Care Act. The ACA brings with it notable changes to …

Letter: Two-state solution

Sunday, November 23, 2014

We don’t have to go far to read and hear about increased tensions and violence in Israel and the West Bank. The recent uptick in violence requires that we act with reason and compassion for all those Israelis and Palestinians affected. As J Street members, we believe that …

Letter: Liberal bias

Saturday, November 22, 2014

It’s been nearly two weeks and not one mention of Jonathan Gruber’s Obamacare remarks regarding stupid Americans. I guess it just doesn’t fit into the Monitor’s biased liberal agenda. It’s actual news that you refuse to report on. So maybe I’m the stupid American because I continue to …

Letter: Move Sunapee forward

Saturday, November 22, 2014

I am writing to support the proposed expansion at Mount Sunapee. My support is based on the following: Mount Sunapee’s operation is a major contributor to the economic well being of the entire Lake Sunapee region. Not only is the mountain a major employer, the guests who come …

Letter: History lesson

Saturday, November 22, 2014

William O’Brien returns to the speakership of the New Hampshire House of Representatives. Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. MIKE BRADLEY Hillsboro …

Letter: A pumpkin past its prime

Saturday, November 22, 2014

Oh, jack o’ lantern on my step, how swiftly by the time has crept. All Hallow’s Eve was your night with glowing yellow candles bright. And trick-or-treaters all athrill at your orange globe (and my carving skill). But now the candy’s disappeared and costumes put ’way ’til next …
