Letter: Believe in this underdog

Saturday, August 23, 2014

They said man would never fly. They said we could never get to the moon. They say Market Basket employees can’t win this fight. They say we won’t ever be the same. History is filled with stories of people who overcome the odds. At the start of this, experts and professors said we were committing corporate suicide and that we could never win this fight. Now they are changing their … 0

Letter: Moved by Market Basket

Saturday, August 23, 2014

I have rarely shopped at Market Basket, but I’d like Dennis Emery (Monitor letters, Aug 16) to know that if the current owners don’t kill the company, and Artie T. returns to the helm, I will shop at Market Basket occasionally in the future in support of him and his co-workers. It is rare these days when large numbers of us get riled … 0

Letter: A beauty of an effort

Saturday, August 23, 2014

Kudos to the individuals and groups who have done such a terrific job planting and maintaining the flower islands around the city. I particularly enjoy the roundabout at Centre and Liberty streets, and the Washington Street island. Their commitment is part of what makes Concord special. ELIZABETH CORELL Concord … 0

Letter: Don’t let Free Staters fool you

Friday, August 22, 2014

‘The lady doth protest too much, methinks.” On Aug. 12, the Monitor gave Free State President Carla Gericke space to write about her organization’s goals and objectives that most New Hampshire people would support (Monitor Forum, Aug. 12). But I read her “My Turn” piece as an effort … 3

Letter: Don’t let polluters win

Thursday, August 21, 2014

Flash floods warnings across the state this week are coming on the heels of the fifth wettest July in history for the Granite State. But as crazy as the weather seems right now, extremes today could be the new normal for future generations tomorrow unless we rein in … 13

Letter: Path of homelessness

Thursday, August 21, 2014

On a recent Monday night, I got a call from my boyfriend about 10 p.m. He usually volunteers for St. Vincent de Paul’s Food Pantry on Monday and Tuesday nights, and a call from him is most times to say he’ll be home late. But not this Monday … 1

Letter: Trouble at the jail

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Much discussion and controversy has surrounded the Belknap County jail in recent months. As a candidate for state representative from Laconia, I decided to visit this facility and tour the inside. The jail is made up of a hodgepodge of several additions constructed over the years. It was … 0

Letter: Experience matters

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

I’ve compared the two Democratic candidates for District 15 state Senate, and here is my conclusion. Dan Feltes and Kass Ardinger are both smart and caring candidates who are focused on the right issues. The difference, for me, is in their experience. Feltes has lived here for eight … 0

Letter: The family picks Feltes

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

While we are politically aware, it takes a special candidate to get our family actively involved in a campaign. Dan Feltes is that candidate, and we proudly support and endorse him for state Senate. We recently held a house party for Dan, and his remarks reinforced our belief … 0

Letter: Chicken versus BearCat

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Political speech is the most protected speech we have in this country, except in Londonderry, where the police cited Michael Zona for disorderly conduct. While wearing a chicken suit, Zona allegedly aggressively clucked and flapped his wings at Gov. Maggie Hassan and Sen. Jeanne Shaheen. Warning, Mr. Zona: … 4

Letter: What climate change looks like

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

Your recent article on Lake Sunapee (Monitor front page, Aug. 11) notes how “in the late 19th century . . . wealthy families would arrive by train and be ferried to one of a handful of remote waterfront resorts.” This reliance on navigable water, in the absence of … 32

Letter: The scoop on beans

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

Hillary Nelson’s article about bean hole beans (Monitor Food, Aug. 13) is interesting and informative. However, Hillary’s research went off track in writing about the process of putting the kettle of parboiled beans into the hole. She described the hole, the rocks and the coals, but then goes … 0
