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

Third N.H. loon death this year linked to lead poisoning

Seems like a piss-poor reason for Loons to be dying. Why not ban lead fishing tackle, altogether? Surely, we have the technology...(full comment)

Letter: Feltes gives voice to voiceless

Sunday, July 20, 2014

I encourage all voters in Concord, Hopkinton, Henniker and Warner to learn more about New Hampshire Senate candidate Dan Feltes. Dan has a very long record of working for and advocating for those without a voice. He is a hard-working, conflict-free, clear thinker with sterling ethics. Our district … 1

Letter: You can trust Ardinger

Sunday, July 20, 2014

I am writing in support of Kass Ardinger for state Senate District 15. Kass’s efforts during her tenure on the Concord School Board have resulted in an improved public school system and three brand new elementary schools, which affects me, as a mother of young children, directly. Kass … 0

Letter: Pappas earned another term

Sunday, July 20, 2014

When I saw that Chris Pappas had officially filed to seek re-election to the Executive Council, I could not have been more excited. Pappas has worked hard to give a voice to those he represents in the greater Manchester area in his first two years in office and … 0

Letter: State’s role in border crisis

Sunday, July 20, 2014

Since 2008, more than 150,000 unaccompanied juveniles from Central and South America have crossed over our borders and are now residing in military and medical facilities here in the United States. According to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, after their hearings, they are set free to join families with … 1

Letter: Circus no fun for animals

Sunday, July 20, 2014

While the circus may seem amusing to some people, it is never fun for the animals that are being exploited. The two elephants in attendance at the Kelly Miller Circus that recently performed in Bristol and Hillsboro were Lisa, who is 49 years old, and Traci, who is … 1

Letter: Climate change wisdom

Sunday, July 20, 2014

After recently chastising the Monitor (Monitor letters, July 3) regarding a recent editorial, “Everybody has a church in the woods” (Monitor Opinion, July 1), I must complement the paper on following up with “Climate change for beginners” (Monitor Forum, July 13) and the ensuing letters generated by this … 1

Letter: ‘Monitor’ wrong on hate

Saturday, July 19, 2014

The editorial “A Powerful Incubator of Hate” (Monitor, July 15) states that people who dedicate their time to hatred “simply long to be understood, for their ideas to be embraced.” It appears that the editorial staff of the Monitor has embraced at least one idea of the hate … 2

Letter: What day is it again?

Saturday, July 19, 2014

I’ve shaken my head many times over spelling errors in the Monitor, but this error takes the cake: The front page on Tuesday, July 15, tries to tell us it’s actually Monday, July 15. Get a grip people. At least get the date right. JOAN JOOS Hopkinton … 1

Letter:

Saturday, July 19, 2014

Help lead on climate change Many thanks for the “Climate change for beginners” article (Sunday Monitor, July 13). Humankind will have a much kinder, gentler future in coming years if we can overcome the misinformation, willful blindness and political payoffs that are contributing to our deer-in-the-headlights inaction on … 1

Letter: Vote with parks in mind

Saturday, July 19, 2014

We are lucky to have great state parks in New Hampshire. Recently, we canoed and picnicked at Kingston State Park. It’s always crowded, and it’s encouraging to see families and friends experience clean, wholesome activities and making memories that last a lifetime. We take experiences like these for … 2
