Letter: Ardinger is a class act

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

I would like to say thank you to Kass Ardinger. Thank you for wanting to continue in public service representing us in the state Senate. Thank you for running a very clean race against Dan Feltes. Even though I voted for Feltes, the district would have been well-represented by you if the election results were different. Thank you for showing the young people watching this election your class act of … 0

Letter: A place of their own

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

When I walk along Main Street and on the Heights, I notice that there are no places where teenagers can hang out besides the skate park. I know there’s the Concord Boys & Girls Club and the YMCA, but why isn’t there a place just for teenagers to come and go as they please without worrying about paying? The place should be run … 0

Letter: Insulting Foley’s memory

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

As a veteran who believes that militarism and war are not the answer to the recent events in the Middle East, I want to point out that President Obama, in part, is using the death of James Foley to justify further violence there. In 2012, I went to a NATO conference in Chicago to offer support to Iraq and Afghan war vets who … 0

Letter: Let’s elect Scott Brown

Are we talking about the same Scott Brown that is calling himself an independent thinker in his ads? Not a GOP drone?...(full comment)

Letter: Hosmer is leading charge against domestic violence

Sunday, September 14, 2014

The shocking video of a professional football player violently and viciously assaulting his fiancée has brought the issue of domestic violence to the nation’s attention again. The callous indifference of the NFL compounds the problem and is emblematic of the challenges faced by victims. The National Coalition Against … 1

Letter: Studies don’t support vouchers

Sunday, September 14, 2014

Jason Bedrick’s recent column in praise of New Hampshire’s “educational choice” law, permitting businesses donating to “nonprofit scholarship organizations” like Network for Educational Opportunity to receive tax credits, attempts to put lipstick on a pig (Monitor Forum, Sept. 6). Leaving aside the important but separate issue of whether … 2

Letter: Racism lessons

Sunday, September 14, 2014

I, too, am a racist, and I realized it one day in the 1970s. I was on Manchester’s West Side, and being from Deerfield I always heard stories back then about the tough neighborhood. Two young, white, tough-looking guys walked past me. I didn’t give it a second … 4

Letter: Harman in District 15

Sunday, September 14, 2014

I am supporting Lydia Harman for state Senate District 15 because she has real answers to the challenges for our state. The state has lost the New Hampshire Advantage and has lost its business friendliness. Harman can get that advantage back. The first thing the state needs to … 0

Letter: Post-primary thoughts

Saturday, September 13, 2014

The battle is over! The primary is done, now the “big war” of ugly begins – the November grand finale. As a Republican, I couldn’t vote in the Senate race but would have voted for Dan Feltes. I knew the Monitor would say nice things about both but … 0

Letter: Hassan helping veterans

Saturday, September 13, 2014

It’s always frustrating for me to see our veterans finish their service to our nation and then struggle to achieve the American dream that they fought so hard to protect. As a retired Marine Corps lieutenant colonel, I know that the men and women who have proudly served … 0

Letter: Scary revelations

Saturday, September 13, 2014

Be afraid. Be really, really afraid. According to Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, the Obama administration is imposing strict Islamic or Sharia Law on the U.S. military. And here’s another frightening revelation, so to speak. The American Family Association confirms it was God who created national … 4

Letter: The mall and Main Street

Saturday, September 13, 2014

I just read “Prepping for Main Street preseason” (Monitor front page, Sept. 8). City Engineer Ed Roberge said “this fall is to be limited to say an excavator taking up a lane.” Do you take Concord residents as stupid? In the late fall, when we are down a … 1

Letter: A matter of importance

Saturday, September 13, 2014

I am very concerned about the Monitor’s front page of Sept. 8. The president’s concern about the trouble happening overseas was delegated to maybe one quarter of the page while a picture of the Patriots losing a game was given three-quarters of a page coverage. I think the … 0

Letter: State lucky to have Shaheen

Saturday, September 13, 2014

New Hampshire is fortunate to have someone of Sen. Jeanne Shaheen’s caliber representing us in Washington. Her credentials, knowledge of the state and ability to put reason ahead of politics or special interests are beyond compare. New Hampshire is unique. Representing it requires understanding the people, their needs … 0
