Letter: A bad argument

Tuesday, January 27, 2015

Americans For Prosperity hot air is behind the threat to pull New Hampshire out of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative. It was stunning to hear the AFP spokesman try to link RGGI to increased electric prices when the facts are clear that efficiency spending from funds paid by big generators has saved New Hampshire residents money and will continue to do so. The disingenuous response to the question about Koch …

Letter: Don’t forget the arts!

Tuesday, January 27, 2015

Again, a Capitol Center for the Arts performance – “Pete Seeger; The Storm King” – is not noted in the Arts and Entertainment section of Thursday’s Monitor. Last week, I looked for an article on “A Centennial Salute to ‘Old Blue Eyes’ Frank Sinatra.” Nothing! Not even a posting in the calendar listings. Tom Brady, with his deflated footballs, would gladly relinquish space …

Letter: Every life matters

Tuesday, January 27, 2015

New Hampshire Right to Life recently held its annual March For Life Rally. There were more than 400 people in attendance at our event, which culminated in a wonderful speaker presentation by Catherine Adair. As a past employee of Planned Parenthood in Boston, Adair shared her experiences of what really happens within the walls of a Planned Parenthood clinic. Her speech was thought-provoking …

Letter: A fair tax proposal

Friday, January 23, 2015

I am not a big fan of taxes. But I dislike unfairness even more. Therefore, I am following with interest legislation being sponsored by Sen. Dan Feltes and Rep. Richard Ames, both Democrats, that will close tax loopholes benefiting a small percentage of our citizens in favor of …

Letter: We appreciate the help

Friday, January 23, 2015

My family and I would like to say a big thank you to the Franklin police and fire departments for responding fast to the scene of an accident when our car slid on ice and hit a pole. Everyone was extremely sympathetic and understanding and handled the situation …

Letter: Support your library

Friday, January 23, 2015

The Gilmanton Year-Round Library provides a central meeting place for a town so widely spread out. Besides books and magazines, DVDs, computer use, scheduled children’s and adult programs, the GYRL hosts many group meetings in comfortable community space. Some of the groups meeting regularly this year at the …

Letter: RGGI leading the change

Friday, January 23, 2015

I am deeply concerned that RGGI is being put on the chopping block. Carbon is not going away. Climate change is not going away. Worldwide and across the country, the effects of climate change are manifesting daily. Since New Hampshire joined the RGGI in 2009, carbon emissions are …

Letters: Memories of Islam

Thursday, January 22, 2015

There seems to be confusion between Islam and terrorism. In West Africa, I lived a pleasant year with a Muslim family. The wife, Anna, cooked a mean pot of rice and cassava leaf, the kids were playful and inquisitive, and the father, Allieu, was an El Hadj, respected …

Letter: We need time on pipeline

Thursday, January 22, 2015

I very much appreciate the coverage of the pipeline issue by Allie Morris (Monitor, Jan. 18). While our Congressional delegation has plainly asked the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and Kinder Morgan to give New Hampshire towns and constituents more time to learn about the pipeline costs and benefits, …

Letter: Two Saturdays, $8 million

Thursday, January 22, 2015

Do you pay a tax bill, have kids in school, want your roads plowed or expect the police and fire departments to come when called? These things cost money, lots of it. On March 7 and 14 Chichester residents will authorize the Selectman and School Board to collect …

Letter: Ride Concord’s wave

Thursday, January 22, 2015

This is in response to your request for ways to boost the mall’s popularity (Monitor, Jan. 14). I feel Concord needs something to bring more people to this city all year round. My suggestion is to create an indoor amusement park with a wave pool or a lazy …

Letter: A display of cruelty

Thursday, January 22, 2015

To the owner of a short-haired tabby colored cat with white on back legs and its muzzle that was possibly thrown from your vehicle in a purple blanket the other night, on Langley Street halfway before getting to Concord Hospital….I couldn’t bear to see its body lay on …

Letter: Stand up to save RGGI

Thursday, January 22, 2015

As a citizen of New Hampshire and a member of the City of Dover Energy Commission, I feel strongly that greater energy efficiency and conservation are keys in lowering our energy costs. I ask that the Legislature reject the RGGI repeal bill – HB208. If this bill passes, …
