Letter: A fact is a fact

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

It was very encouraging to see 300,000 people turn out for the Climate March in New York to express their deep concern for the human-caused changes to the Earth’s climate and its impact on all living things. People from all walks of life demonstrated their passion about the issue and their sense of urgency about the need for global cooperation to save the climate. Since the population of the United … 4

Letter: We deserve better

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

Are the voters of Candia, Deerfield and Nottingham as embarrassed as I am by the behavior of our state representative, Kyle Tasker? He’s running for re-election, and I would urge voters in these towns to carefully consider whether he is the person you want representing you. You may remember one of the first times he made national news as a freshman legislator when … 0

Letter: It’s not Boehner’s bridge

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

In a letter to House Speaker John Boehner, Congresswoman Annie Kuster pushes him to fully restore money for the Sewalls Falls Bridge and the Highway Trust Fund (Monitor Local and State, Sept. 24). Poppycock. Whether, how much and when federal money is spent on the bridge is not up to Boehner, or Kuster, or Congress. Spending priorities are set by the state, through … 5

Letter: Shame on the board

Thursday, September 25, 2014

The Chichester Board of Selectmen should be ashamed of themselves after their performance at the meeting last Thursday (Monitor Local and State, Sept. 19). Regardless of which side of the issue you find yourself on, you should be appalled that Selectman Richard DeBold chose to let one of … 0

Letter: Poor choice of words

Thursday, September 25, 2014

Boots on the ground. If this is the wordage you choose to describe our combat soldiers, you have a deep-rooted mental problem and should seek immediate help. If not, don’t ever let me hear you use this phrase. WILLIAM J. BREAGY Epsom … 5

Letter: Lessons from California

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

While reading the editorial “Kansas has a few lessons for Granite State” (Monitor Opinion, Sept. 22), I remembered my own situation in California in the 1970s. Along with millions of others, I voted for Proposition 13, which promised to keep our real estate taxes low. It was a … 4

Letter: Why Barney?

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

Maybe I am missing something or I did not receive the proper email. I just read that the Merrimack County Democrats held a Saturday night harvest supper at Carter Hill Orchards in Concord and that former U.S. representative from Massachusetts Barney Frank was the keynote speaker. He is … 10

Letter: Vote for Rago

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

I am writing in support of Kathy Rago for state Senate District 7. As a small-business owner in the Lakes Region, I have found that it’s becoming more difficult to do business in New Hampshire with higher and higher fuel costs and the increasing fees that I am … 0

Letter: The case for Mount Sunapee

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

An open letter to Jeffrey Rose, commissioner of the Department of Resources and Economic Development: Dear Mr. Rose, I am writing you this letter to advocate for the proposed expansion of Mount Sunapee. I have been a resident of Sunapee for 17 years and can attest to the … 0

Letter: Don’t let Big Oil win

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

Recently, Frank Guinta denied “man-made” climate change. Climate change deniers often cite a bogus non-peer-reviewed report by the oil industry-funded Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change. Don’t be fooled. NIPCC’s main funding comes from the Heartland Institute, an industry shill with a clear conflict of interest and bias. … 12

Letter: We need more Roosevelts

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

Hopefully, many in New Hampshire have enjoyed one of our state’s great natural resources, the creativity of Ken Burns. Viewing his intimate portrait of the Roosevelts has been both educational and inspiring. The ability of people to rise up from great personal sorrow to contribute so much to … 4

Letter: The puppet candidate

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

Pinocchio began life as a puppet and eventually realized his passion to become a real live boy. New Hampshire Senate candidate Scott Brown appears to be a real live boy with a fervent wish to become a puppet. We only hope that when he succeeds, he’ll inherit Pinocchio’s … 3

Letter: The trouble with Havenstein

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

I believe Walt Havenstein, Republican candidate for governor, is either seriously delusional or gives New Hampshire voters virtually no credit for being able to sort fact from fiction. His TV ads imply his experience as a corporate CEO provides the necessary skills to run the New Hampshire government … 4
