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: ‘Lowest of the low’

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Your editorial cartoon denigrating the Tea Party was the lowest of the low (Monitor Opinion, June 17). The Tea Party is working hard to try to save this country from a dictator who only wants to destroy it by overwhelming the system. It’s obvious you are a left … 10

Letter: Concerns about Ardinger

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Let’s not forget that Kass Ardinger has been on the Concord School Board since 2006 and was involved in the under-the-table purchasing of houses in the Kimball Block to ensure that the elementary school would stay downtown. Historic properties were demolished so Christa McAuliffe Elementary could be erected. … 3

Letter: Climate change economics

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Thanks to Ayn Whytemare for the terrific article on climate change (The Forum, Sunday Monitor, July 13). I especially liked seeing the rarely mentioned use of land as a carbon sink. There’s a great TED talk by Alan Savory about what he calls “mob grazing,” using herd animals … 0

Letter: Support Cain in Pittsfield

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

I am very pleased and honored to urge the Pittsfield Board of Selectmen to give serious consideration in hiring acting Police Chief Jeff Cain as the full-time police chief. I have known Cain since the mid-1990s, when I was the administrative assistant/dispatcher for the police department from 1992 … 0

Letter: Leave biology to biologists

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

It’s kind of Sister Mary Rose Reddy to explain the science behind the Hobby Lobby decision (Monitor letters, July 13). The explanation is incomplete, though, and in a particularly perplexing way. However “alive” a fertilized human egg may be, it’s also doomed until and unless implanted, preferably within … 19

Letter: Thanks to Megan Doyle

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

I had the pleasure of reading Megan Doyle’s article related to the services provided by our men and women who so ably serve our country (Sunday Monitor front page, July 6). Doyle brought us so artfully and powerfully into the lives of these men and women. Thank you, … 0

Letter: An old double standard

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

My faith in the court system has been restored: Former Manchester police officer Steve Coco has been sent back to jail. Although I do question why he did not get prison time. If this was you or me, we would be sitting in prison right now. The blue-wall … 0

Letter: They are refugees

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

Funny that we don’t call Iraqi people gone to Turkey or Syrian people gone to neighboring countries “migrants.” We call these desperate people refugees. Refugees coming through Mexico from Central America are from Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador – countries we destabilized. Destabilizing happened with President Ronald Reagan’s Central … 2

Letter: Benefits of Five Rivers

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

We were pleased to read the editorial on July 9 recognizing the success of Five Rivers Conservation Trust. As residents of Hopkinton, we benefit from the many acres of land protected by Five Rivers. From Ransmeier Woods and the Sweatt Preserve, where we hear the song of the … 0

Letter: Real green is real clean

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

The New Hampshire Office of Energy and Planning held a public hearing in Plymouth recently to present a draft of the new energy strategy that came about as a result of Senate Bill 191, passed in the last legislative session. The state paid $200,000 for the strategy, which … 1
