Letter: Time’s up

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

Since it is almost three weeks since the election, all of the political signage should have been removed. I am referring specifically to the Garcia, Guay and Burns signs that are littering Exit 1 in Bow and elsewhere around town. These signs are on the state and town right of way, not private property. There may be others out there, but these are the ones I see daily. HELAINE KANEGSBERG …

Letter: The wrong headline

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

It’s been a while, but I see that the writer of the sub headline for an article who doesn’t read the article is back working at the Monitor. The latest example of his or her talent is on page A6 of the Monday, Nov. 24, edition describing an article by Michael Birnbaum from the Washington Post. The first sentence of the second paragraph …

Letter: Local food, locals sources

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

This is in response to the brewing opinions in regard to the Fournier Foods processing plant. It seems to me after observing the process for some time that some of us take a prejudicial view and overlook the contribution that growth makes to our communities. I believe that processing plants bring us closer to local food from local sources. We should begin to …

Letter: A poor strategy

Friday, November 21, 2014

Glenn K. Currie’s “My Turn” (Monitor Forum, Nov. 20) was something that a lot of people needed to hear. Unfortunately, his conservative message of individual freedoms and small government is being drowned out by the message of Christian hate toward Islam and homosexuals, and pure hatred of the …

Letter: Party problems

Friday, November 21, 2014

If I may, I would like to respond to Glenn K. Currie’s reply (Monitor Forum, Nov. 20) to my article (Sunday Monitor Forum, Nov. 16). I tried to be careful to talk about “Republican politicians,” not “Republicans.” I find most Republicans – as well as most Democrats and …

Letter: Truth about turkeys

Friday, November 21, 2014

Thanksgiving turkeys have nothing to be thankful for. More than 170 million of them are crammed for their four short months of life in open sheds allowing 1 square foot per bird. Intense crowding, filthy litter and ammonia fumes from huge amounts of urine cause respiratory ailments, foot …

Letter: The death of science

Friday, November 21, 2014

Katy Burns’s column (Sunday Monitor Forum, Nov. 16) roused some cheers among the growing numbers of citizens who understand where climate change and its deniers are taking us. What I fail to understand is how our great country, which became great because it embraced science, could now find …

Letter: A forest worth saving

Friday, November 21, 2014

Mount Sunapee Resort has proposed a major expansion that would link the current ski area with private land outside the state park on the west flank of the mountain. Staff from the New Hampshire Natural Heritage Bureau conducted a field study of that part of the proposed expansion …

Letter: Back in time

Thursday, November 20, 2014

Regarding the Supreme Court decision in the matter of Citizens United and the recent election, if money does indeed equal free speech, then some people have a much louder voice than others. Much louder. And while we’re on the subject of elections, since the U.S. Senate has flipped …

Letter: Just joy

Thursday, November 20, 2014

The holiday season is fast approaching, also known as the season of grumbling about whether or not to wish anyone a happy holiday and how to go about it. I thoroughly enjoy celebrating Christmas. I’m not a churchgoer, so I guess my celebration is more pagan in flavor. …

Letter: Thanks, District 27

Thursday, November 20, 2014

My deepest thanks to voters in Merrimack District 27 (Wards 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 7) for your continuing support and vote on Nov. 4. I am especially grateful for the help and support of friends and neighbors, those who displayed a “Gile” sign on their lawns …

Letter: Where’s the story?

Thursday, November 20, 2014

On Saturday, all the stores in Franklin were sold out of the Union Leader so I got the Monitor instead. I wanted to read more about MIT professor Jonathan Gruber. I read the paper from cover to cover but I didn’t find a single word. Must have been …

Letter: Amend the Constitution

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

Thank you for publishing Arnie Arnesen’s plea for bipartisan cooperation (Monitor Forum, Nov. 15). I agree that our political atmosphere is toxic and the real power now is mostly covert. However, we need not despair: There are many volunteers from both camps working hard to detoxify our democracy. …
