Letter: Hassan best for my daughter

Thursday, July 31, 2014

I graduated from college in 1970, and many career and academic doors have opened for women since that time. Women are attending medical school, law school and studying engineering in record numbers, and many now play an ever more important role in government. Unfortunately, more than 40 years later, some things have not changed. I watched with dismay as the Supreme Court first struck down buffer zone measures that would … 0

Letter: ‘Monitor’ missed big event

Thursday, July 31, 2014

I was extremely disappointed to find no coverage in the Monitor for the recent flagpole dedication at Keach Park on the Concord Plains-Heights. The well-attended event also recognized the 100th anniversary of Pineconia-Concord Grange No. 322, which donated the flagpole for all members of the community to enjoy. The July 22 event featured a concert by Nevers Band, refreshments and a presentation of … 0

Letter: Housing solutions

Thursday, July 31, 2014

Months ago, I was watching HGTV and they were transforming shipping containers into housing. When a homeless group was forming in Concord, I wrote a letter suggesting that train cars could serve the same housing ideas here in Concord. Noticing a vacant box car on the tracks by the Friendly Kitchen got me thinking: Why not a “village” of several updated, room divided, … 0

Letter: Palestinian propaganda

Sunday, July 27, 2014

The July 19 edition of the Monitor presented us with a political cartoon that was seriously unfunny and shockingly misleading. It posited the question: “Which is worse?”: Gazans using human shields or Israel hitting them. Let’s peruse the facts shall we? Israel accepted the Egyptian proposed cease-fire while … 0

Letter: The language of hate

Sunday, July 27, 2014

Of the many horrific images we’ve come to expect in the news media lately, there is one image that hurts my heart more than any. It is the image of “ordinary” citizens gathered together to blockade routes into their towns. From the faces contorted in anger and fear, … 0

Letter: Free Staters part of the New Hampshire tradition

Sunday, July 27, 2014

Regarding Matt Murray’s opinion piece titled “Don’t fall into trap set by Free Staters” (Monitor Forum, July 19), as any educated New Hampshire native would know, in their advocacy for limited and non-intrusive government, Free Staters are doing no more than espousing and acting upon the same ideas … 0

Congratulations and thanks to Intown Concord’s staff and many volunteers who put in hundreds of hours of planning, coordinating, problem solving and organizing the fabulous Market Days Festival downtown.

Sunday, July 27, 2014

I have many reasons to be a proud supporter of Kass Ardinger for state Senate. At the top of the list is my firm belief that we need more women fighting for women’s parity on all fronts, especially with regards to health care rights. As an activist and … 0

Letter: Feltes is leader state needs

Sunday, July 27, 2014

Dan Feltes is devoted to those concerns that directly affect women and are, therefore, important to men and families. He’s the candidate who has been fighting passionately in the trenches and is the leader we need to champion important issues that will move us forward. As a state … 0

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 … 8

Letter: Long live the loons

Saturday, July 26, 2014

I appreciated your loon report from Squam Lake (Monitor front page, July 21). Loons live farther south, of course. I pulled up to the stop sign at the north end of Long Pond Road last week. Swimming and diving in front of me was a family of four … 0

Letter: Ardinger will change narrative

Friday, July 25, 2014

Kass Ardinger is my candidate in the Democratic primary for state senator. I ask that you consider her as your candidate – Dan Feltes supporters as well! Her views and positions are clearly stated at Why? The current narrative surrounding politics is one of disenchantment, one of … 0
