Letter: Why does his age matter?

Thursday, March 26, 2015

A few questions concerning the Monitor headline “73-year-old surrenders” on the front page of the March 19 edition and one comment: What is the significance of the man’s age? How old is the writer of this headline? How old is the editor who let it pass? Hey, it’s okay! I can remember when I never thought I’d be 30. DAN DUSTIN Contoocook …

Letter: An elder plot

Thursday, March 26, 2015

It appears from reports that the Republicans in Congress are proposing to cut funding for Meals on Wheels. Apparently, some billionaire donor has convinced them that us elderly folk are staying elderly longer just so we can get Meals on Wheels. ART MORSE Pittsfield …

Letter: Speak out about cable

Thursday, March 26, 2015

It is time for the residents of Concord to voice their concerns regarding renewal of the contract with Comcast. Seniors and disabled persons on fixed incomes should demand a low flat rate. It is my understanding there is currently available a $2 per month discount for seniors if they meet the qualifications. It seems to be a well-kept secret as those I have …

Well, I just reread my comment and realized it's pretty much what John_V_Kjellman wrote, albeit in slightly different words. ...(full comment)

Letter: Great shots

Tuesday, March 24, 2015

Compliments to Cameron Johnson on the great shots of Irish dancers at the Barley House (Monitor Local & State, March 18). Low light, fast action. Good job! SHERRY YOUNG Contoocook …

Letter: Why we need term limits

Monday, March 23, 2015

The preponderance of letters on a single subject – Sen. Kelly Ayotte and the Iran letter (Monitor Forum, March 13) – makes a political cynic like myself think there may be some organization behind the effort. It was admirable for Peter Hoe Burling to reveal his political preference. …

Letter: Fund kindergarten

Monday, March 23, 2015

One of the many cool things about having a granddaughter is watching her go through her developmental stages. As a lifelong special educator, I am in awe at how quickly she is acquiring language and social skills. This is due in no small part to her active, engaged …

Letter: A great show

Monday, March 23, 2015

The Magic of Movies and Television produced by the Rotary Club of Concord at the Concord City Auditorium recently can be summed up so beautifully with the musical number that Caroline and Claude Gentilhomme sang, “Unforgettable.” Martha Kuepper and Marc Murai should be commended for putting together a …

Letter: A good time in Pittsfield

Monday, March 23, 2015

To the good citizens of Pittsfield: I did not make it on the zoning board. I’m not really too disappointed due to the fact that Paul Metcalf is still onboard. I was going to try to vote along his way, which is to favor an applicant to the …

Letter: That’s ‘Gandhi’

Sunday, March 22, 2015

Whoa! “Cameron unveils Ghandi statue” (Sunday Monitor, March 15)? Your copy editor isn’t aware that in Hindi “ghandi” means dirty. The proper spelling of the champion of nonviolence is Gandhi. Bet you’ll never make that mistake again! SHEILA ZAKRE Concord …

Letter: Trust the data

Sunday, March 22, 2015

It was refreshing to read Steve Mongan’s thoughtful article on climate change (Sunday Monitor Forum, March 15). My criticism toward conservatives on this issue has always been toward the Republican leadership and not toward individual members of the GOP or Libertarians. This is a human issue that gets …

Letter: The point of no return

Sunday, March 22, 2015

Steve Mongan urges “serious, intelligent” debate on climate change (Sunday Monitor Forum, March 15). Where has he been? Ice fields are breaking up, ocean levels rising. There is overwhelming consensus among world scientists on the phenomenon and its causes. Our planet is in trouble, and the point of …

Letter: The debate is over

Sunday, March 22, 2015

Steve Mongan’s “My Turn” piece (Sunday Monitor Forum, March 15) deserves an answer, although it’s likely not the one he wants. Virtually everything about climate change, including what it’s called, use of the term “deniers,” and so on, has been debated to death for the past several decades. …

Letter: The rest of the DOT story

Sunday, March 22, 2015

Rep. Patricia Higgins’s statement about New Hampshire Department of Transportation employees versus contractors was far from the truth (Monitor Forum, March 13). I do not think it is fair to say and I do not agree with the statement that contractors are not as dedicated and do not …
