Letter: How about some solutions?

Wednesday, October 1, 2014

Have you seen it? I’m sure you have. Mudslinging ads on TV have trickled over to news stories and letters in the paper. Many Democrat candidates for office and liberal organizations are on an endless smear campaign of Republican candidates, regardless of whether running for state representative or U.S. Senate. Big oil this, Koch brothers that, blah, blah, blah. What’s big are the problems facing this country. What’s even bigger … 4

Letter: Abomination

Wednesday, October 1, 2014

If you are upset about ISIS beheading Westerners, then consider how we kill 3,000 American babies a day by abortion, which cuts off their arms and legs and then crushes their skulls. So who’s worse? God is not going to give America peace and prosperity as long as this abomination continues. STEPHANIE PADOVANO Concord … 0

Letter: Immorality isn’t funny

Wednesday, October 1, 2014

Regarding the Concord visit of Sarah Silverman (Monitor Local And State, Sept. 23), I am saddened that so many “women’s activists” are fond of saying, “It’s my body; it’s my choice.” Immorality is all around us and is seen as humor. I am one who cares about the dignity of the human body. There are many others who care, and that is why … 1

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

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

Letter: It’s time for Tebow

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

It’s not going to be easy for the NFL to rehabilitate its reputation. Seems to me it might be a good time for a few teams to take another look at Tim Tebow. Just saying. LISA BROWN Concord … 0

Letter: Hassan strong on civil rights

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

Voters have a very important choice to make in the race for governor between Gov. Maggie Hassan and Walt Havenstein. I believe the choice is clear. Hassan deserves a second term for a variety of reasons. During her first term, she helped advance civil rights for all people … 3
