Letter: Important step for women

Thursday, July 24, 2014

On Tuesday, Gov. Maggie Hassan signed into law SB 207, the Paycheck Fairness Act. I would like to thank the sponsor of the bill, Sen. Sylvia Larsen, for her commitment and effectiveness in helping to raise the level of economic security experienced by women and their families in New Hampshire. According to the United States Census Bureau, New Hampshire women working full time, year-round earn 77 cents for every dollar … 0

Letter: Disappointed in Ardinger

Thursday, July 24, 2014

I know Dan Feltes is committed to making the primary campaign for the District 15 Senate seat about the issues that matter to the citizens of this district, rather than about attacks. This is why I am particularly disappointed that Kass Ardinger has chosen to attack Dan on the issues of choice and women’s health rather than engaging him in a conversation on … 0

Letter: Women and freedom

Thursday, July 24, 2014

We have been told that we women need freedom, and that includes killing the unborn through abortion. A big part of being a woman is a strong maternal instinct. We are not men. We by design are meant to carry life. The topic of health care includes our mental health. Many women are hurt by abortion. Freedom is actually accepting a God-given role … 0

Letter: Alligator alley?

Letter: A question of accessibility

Monday, July 21, 2014

How is it that CATCH, whose mission would seem to imply attention to the needs of persons with disabilities, has built an inaccessible store in its Endicott Hotel renovation? Did no staff member, board member or architectural consultant catch this flaw? The renovations to the Endicott were clearly … 0

Letter: Alligator alley?

Monday, July 21, 2014

Here is a little hint for New Hampshire’s small but persistent group of climate change deniers. If our weather remains as tropical as it has been for several weeks, we had better start keeping our eyes peeled for alligators and even piranhas showing up in our major rivers … 14

Letter: Motivated for change

Monday, July 21, 2014

This letter was sent to Sen. Kelly Ayotte’s office: Dear Sen. Ayotte: Thank you for reminding me just how debased the English language can become in the hands of people with an agenda whose job is financed by people with the same agenda. This bit of double-talk drivel … 4

Letter: Feltes gets things done

Monday, July 21, 2014

I am supporting Dan Feltes to represent the towns of Concord, Hopkinton, Henniker and Warner in the New Hampshire Senate and am urging citizens in those towns to vote for Dan, too. On Saturday, July 12, I had the chance to hear Dan speak about the issues that … 1

Letter: In defense of Sagan

Monday, July 21, 2014

To Ayn Whytemare, who wrote the article “Climate change for beginners” in the July 13 Sunday Monitor: Please, before disparaging real scientists, do your homework. I was appalled when I read “Carl Sagan (more philosopher than scientist)” and that his predictions were “rudimentary and completely wrong” and were … 1

Letter: Un-American activity

Monday, July 21, 2014

I am appalled that the United States would even consider rejecting refugee children, sending them back to face death at the hands of narco-gangs that have overtaken their countries due to U.S. intervention. As a country of immigrants, proud of its heritage and values, how can we perform … 3

Letter: Pain and Medicaid

Monday, July 21, 2014

I was struck by your article (Monitor, July 3) stating that “the rising rate of substance abuse, especially for highly addictive opioids, is a serious public health and safety challenge and Gov. Hassan is working to address this crisis.” As a health care provider in pain management, I … 1

Letter: A missed opportunity

Monday, July 21, 2014

I want to express my disappointment at the Monitor’s lack of coverage of the beautiful concert presented in the parking garage by the New Hampshire Master Chorale on June 21. The Bernstein Mass was exciting, the acoustics phenomenal and there was a good and appreciative audience. A creative … 0

Letter: A different kind of party

Sunday, July 20, 2014

Tea Partyer Ann Kolifrath lets us know us how angry she is about a Monitor cartoon that failed to coincide with her views (Monitor letters, July 16). Given our freedom of the press, I’m sure there are periodicals whose cartoons are acceptable to her, however offensive to others. … 1

Letter: Condemn DIME bombs

Sunday, July 20, 2014

Dear Sens. Ayotte and Shaheen: Concerning the current conflict between Israel and Palestine, I condemn the firing of rockets from Gaza into Israel as a war crime. On the other hand, I strongly condemn the firing of U.S. Hellfire missiles into one of the most densely populated areas … 4
