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

Town hopes for answers after missing teen returns

Letter: Ardinger is a strong leader

Friday, July 18, 2014

I support Kass Ardinger to represent Concord, Hopkinton, Henniker and Warner as state senator. I know Kass as a caring, involved parent, a strong voice for women’s rights, a compassionate and skillful leader, and a woman who has the ability to bring disparate views together in consensus. As … 0

Letter: Feltes grasps big issues

Friday, July 18, 2014

I had the pleasure of hosting a house party for Dan Feltes for state Senate last Friday evening in Henniker. We had a great turnout of interested residents, and Dan’s remarks reminded me of two key reasons why I and so many others are inspired to support his … 1

Letter: Standing up for D.C.

Friday, July 18, 2014

The recent story about Travis Mitchell’s unsuccessful attempt to purchase alcohol at the Concord Food Coop caught our attention. Travis grew up in Bow with some of our children, and we know him to be an honest and responsible man. Mitchell’s purchase was denied because he presented a … 2

Letter: An inflammatory charge

Friday, July 18, 2014

I’ve always enjoyed Robert Azzi’s contributions to the Monitor, finding his comments about Islam illuminating and inspiring. Unfortunately, I am disheartened by Azzi’s article in the July 13 Sunday Monitor. Citing a column in the Jewish Daily Forward, Azzi repeats an accusation made by that column’s author that … 1

Letter: Boost Social Security benefits

Friday, July 18, 2014

Beginning May 21, 1981, President Ronald Reagan penned a series of letters to congressional leaders and members of the National Commission on Social Security Reform urging passage of legislation preserving Social Security for current recipients and future generations. In one letter, he warned, “There has been a great … 1

Letter: Get fired up, Democrats

Friday, July 18, 2014

Everyone agrees Washington is broken. Republicans can offer nothing new until Barack Obama leaves office. They have a morbid fear of any progress that could possibly be linked to the president. They want him portrayed in future history books as a complete and utter failure. Too late for … 2

Letter: Valuable advice on bears

Thursday, July 17, 2014

It was wonderful to see Ben Kilham’s work honored (Monitor front page, July 16). I recently read his book Out on a Limb, and then within a few days had an encounter with a bear cub and her mother while hiking in Pillsbury State Park. Thanks to Kilham’s … 0

Letter: Feltes strong on health care

Thursday, July 17, 2014

In September, I will be casting my vote in the primary for Dan Feltes to represent Concord, Henniker, Hopkinton and Warner in New Hampshire’s Senate. I have gotten to know Dan through his extraordinary service as a legal aid lawyer and advocate for working families. He is a … 1

Letter: Ranking Obama

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

The Larry O’Brien NBA Championship Trophy is named after a former commissioner of the National Basketball Association. Before that job, O’Brien had a long career in Democratic politics. He is best known for his work as director of John F. Kennedy’s 1952 and 1958 campaigns for the Senate, … 5

Letter: Timeless ‘Mockingbird’

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

It is worth noting the passing of Rosemary Murphy, who played Miss Maddie in To Kill a Mockingbird. This film and book are among the most impactful achievements in the history of American literary and cinematic art. You can have your Star Wars, Star Trek, Citizen Kane, Gone … 0
