Letter: Feeding bellies and minds

Friday, September 19, 2014

We would like to express our appreciation to the Greater Laconia community for helping to make our first year of “Got Literacy” a success. Summer of 2013, we three retired teachers volunteered for the first time in the outstanding “Got Lunch, Laconia” program delivering lunches to deserving families. We observed the widespread impact this program provided our Laconia children and began a conversation about adding a literacy component to the … 0

Letter: Just say no to Shaheen, Kuster and Shea-Porter

Friday, September 19, 2014

New Hampshire is well-known for its retail politics where the candidates are required to get out and listen to the people. All across the state, Republicans are holding one town meeting after another listening to the people and letting them know where they stand on the issues. While it is clear that Republican candidates truly care about what the people think, it is … 20

Letter: A difficult day made easier

Friday, September 19, 2014

Sept. 9 was one of the saddest days for me and my husband, as we had to put down our loving family dog, Zoe, due to kidney failure. It was very hard saying goodbye to Zoe after 12 years of being known and recognized by many in Boscawen as the woman and her little beagle/Jack Russell dog that walked every morning, rain or … 1

Letter: Where did he come from?

Sunday, September 14, 2014

Dick Cheney? Is he risen from the dead? Or just returned from Florida like Bob Smith? THOMAS RICHARD Concord … 4

Letter: Sure sounds like a right

Sunday, September 14, 2014

Nicholas Cort wrote in your paper (Monitor letters, Sept. 10) that “juries in New Hampshire have neither the right nor the authority to find a defendant not guilty solely because they think the criminal law is unjust. It is true that they have the ability to do this.” … 0

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 … 5

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
