Letter: A series of missteps

Monday, July 28, 2014

Market Basket’s implosion? Implosion is when an organization is destroyed by things that are happening within it.

In July 2012, the company reported an unprecedented loss of $21 million compared with a $25 million profit during the … 0

Letter: Greed is not good

Monday, July 28, 2014

Regarding Market Basket turmoil: This is not a typical labor/management dispute. This is a family feud. Co-CEO’s and board of directors: WAKE UP! STOP THE GREED! I’m 77 years old and have been shopping at Market Basket for decades. I don’t like boycotts, but I am supporting this one. Managers, employees and customers are sticking together, pleading for and awaiting the return of … 0

Letter: Board ignored voters

Monday, July 28, 2014

At the March school district meeting, Chichester voted down what was seen as excessive raises. Voted down was a contract that would have paid an almost 20 percent salary increase to staff over three years, costing the taxpayers an additional $300,000.

Letter: For Market Basket leaders, one misstep after another

Saturday, July 26, 2014

It is rare to see a company self-destruct on the front pages of newspapers and via social media, but the tragic collapse of Market Basket is just that. The new corporate leadership has done everything wrong from a communications perspective. They should have started with a clear case … 3

Letter: A spineless response

Saturday, July 26, 2014

What is going on at the Malaysian Airlines crash site? The manner in which the international teams have been treated and the very fact that we, and the entire world, have allowed ourselves to be dictated to by the separatists and Russian President Vladimir Putin on sovereign Ukrainian … 7

Her views and positions are clearly stated at KassArdingerforNHSenate.com. Why? The current narrative surrounding politics is one of disenchantment, one of … 0

Letter: A chance to walk the talk

Friday, July 25, 2014

Regarding “A garden for those lost” (Monitor article, July 6): Because we would never think to talk about such a touchy topic as mental illness around the dinner table, much less admit to ourselves that we might need to make an appointment with a psychiatrist, let it be … 0

Letter: The downside of technology

Friday, July 25, 2014

Change! It is evident that the world is changing. In some cases it is good, but sometimes it is not. Where will the youth of today be five or 10 years from now? Their education is based around computers. If you were to take a computer or iPhone … 1

Letter: Reckless or human?

Friday, July 25, 2014

I read with interest the article on prescription long-acting opiate pain medications (Monitor front page, July 16), and that “in certain respects” we are among the highest prescribers in the nation. In the article, it was noted that Gov. Maggie Hassan and U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte are quite … 0
