Letter: Risky business

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

The Mount Sunapee lease saved two mountains – Mount Sunapee and Cannon Mountain. More than $7.5 million in lease payments have gone to Cannon Mountain to provide for a high-speed quad, snowmaking, grooming and other improvements. People come to Sunapee from various backgrounds: young families with children learning to ski; school programs; the inspirational adaptive ski program; seniors well into their 70s, 80s and even 90s; and many visitors from …

Letter: Competent and reasonable

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

I was delighted when I found out that my neighbor, Anne Baier, was running for one of the Bow-Dunbarton State House seats. She is a great listener and cares deeply about our community. She has lived in Bow for 27 years and devoted 11 years to serving on the Bow School Board. For six years, she was trustee of the Concord Community Music …

Letter: The straight ticket

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

This political season it seems all the Democrats in contention for re-election want to do is characterize their Republican opponents as the “bogeyman.” They don’t seem to want to run on their record. At least I haven’t noticed much political glorifying by Democrats so far. Understandable given the facts available to consider on their collective record. To me it’s not the Republicans that …

Editorial: Kansas has a few lessons for New Hampshire

Letter: Subversion

Friday, October 17, 2014

Dear Republican Governors Association: I received in the mail today an application for an absentee ballot, designed carefully on the front to appear to be an official communication from the State of New Hampshire. It wasn’t until I opened the envelope that I realized it was a Trojan …

Letter: A true public servant

Friday, October 17, 2014

Incumbent state Rep. Lorrie Carey continues to be the best choice to represent Boscawen, Canterbury, Franklin Ward 3, Loudon and Northfield. Experienced, effective and engaged are the first words that come to mind when I think of Carey’s service in the Legislature. When Carey goes to the State …

Letter: What do higher rates buy us?

Thursday, October 16, 2014

The Oct. 5 Sunday Monitor article “Why are electric costs soaring?” suggests an editorial discussion of the Public Utility Commission’s actions in granting electric utility companies rate increases that double costs to consumers as we approach winter. The Monitor article indicates the problem is a shortage of pipeline …

Letter: Behind the numbers

Thursday, October 16, 2014

The Oct. 7 Monitor editorial on charitable giving was interesting, but some further investigation would be fascinating. At first glance, our area seems stingy in comparison to other places. While Utah has a high rate of charitable giving, much apparently is to the giver’s church. When I give …

Letter: Vote for Tanner

Thursday, October 16, 2014

I enthusiastically support Linda Tanner for District 8 state senator. I believe that Rep. Tanner has both the legislative and life experience to represent my interests at the State House. I am especially appreciative of her support for repeal of the death penalty during the past legislative session. …

Letter: Other invasives

Thursday, October 16, 2014

I was happy to see Ayn Whytemare’s piece “Destroy the invaders (with some help from the goats)” in the Sept. 8 Monitor. I’d rather have seen photos of the mentioned invasives, however, than a photo of a Maryland goat. I was also disappointed to see no mention of …

Letter: Not so clear

Thursday, October 16, 2014

Let us clarify a major truth about Sen. Jeanne Shaheen’s “Clear Choice” (Monitor front page, Oct. 4). This is not entirely a woman’s issue. In the opinion of the majority of both men and women, it is an offense against women and their ability to bear children. Women …

Letter: A call for change

Thursday, October 16, 2014

To the Hopkinton State Fair Association board of directors: Do you think it’s time for a turnover of leadership? STEVE LUX Jr. Hopkinton …

Letter: Hosmer focused on education

Thursday, October 16, 2014

As a lifelong educator and parent of two boys currently in the public school system, I will be voting to re-elect state Sen. Andrew Hosmer. Hosmer is a strong, committed advocate for teachers, parents and students. My children have thrived in the public school system here in Gilford. …

Letter: Georgevits is right choice

Thursday, October 16, 2014

We’re supporting Ken Georgevits for county commissioner from District 1. We’ve known Ken for approximately 15 years and are impressed by his commitment to projects and issues. A born and trained leader, Ken displays strong character and drive. As a military officer, he takes a very logical and …
