Letter: Minutes show Ardinger didn’t support full-day kindergarten

Friday, August 22, 2014

A supporter, close friend and fellow school board member of Kass Ardinger claimed Kass did not vote to stop full-day kindergarten in Concord (Monitor Forum, Aug. 21). That is inaccurate. As the Monitor noted in its recent “on the issues” story on Aug. 17, when the Concord School Board considered full-day kindergarten, Ardinger did not support it at the time. Here are the original minutes, still viewable online, from the … 1

Letter: Feltes for full-day kindergarten

Friday, August 22, 2014

Dan Feltes’s unwavering support for full-day kindergarten is, more than any other issue, what compels me to strongly support his campaign. Every child and family in Hopkinton now has the opportunity for full-day public kindergarten and this is a tremendous boost to our community. The school board concluded that full-day kindergarten is a smart investment that helps establish a strong foundation for learning … 1

Letter: A bonus for hard work

Friday, August 22, 2014

I am a 20-year veteran teacher at Chichester Central School and could not ask for a better school to work in. I was out of town for the school board meeting, but I feel the Aug. 15 article on the Monitor’s front page did not properly portray the situation at our school. A stipend is, by definition, a fixed regular sum paid as … 1

As a longtime Hannaford shopper, I would like to publicly thank the staff there for their extra work these last few weeks. With Market Basket shoppers filling the aisles, Hannaford has stepped up with more checkout lanes, restocking shelves more frequently to keep items on hand, and the … 3

Letter: Hazardous steps

Friday, August 15, 2014

I recently attended the EPA’s public information session on its Clean Power Plan held at the Concord Library. Evidence abounds that our health, the economy and future generations will be positively affected by cleaner air. We in the Northeast in particular are in the path of carbon and … 3

If you think the Main Street proposal is bad, just wait until they complete the changes approved for Loudon Road. With an estimated 100 accidents per year (based on more than 20,000 vehicles per day), the city council accepted a proposal from an engineer to implement a turning … 3

Letter: A different road

Friday, August 15, 2014

I would hope politicians of all shades read letters to the editor, but my feeling is they don’t. Twice now, sensible citizens have suggested a good idea for the road changes proposed for Concord. The Main Street project and earlier the Loudon Road development both received the same … 0

Letter: Don’t mess with Grammy

Thursday, August 14, 2014

I’d be willing to bet you’ve never met a more hard-working lady than my grandmother. She is incapable of doing anything halfway or slow. She puts her heart, sweat and most recently her tears into her many gardens. This past week she called me all in a tizzy … 0

Letter: A reliable conservative

Thursday, August 14, 2014

This election season it is critical that we Republicans elect common-sense, reliably conservative candidates to our state Legislature. With this in mind, I would encourage you to support state Sen. David Boutin of Hooksett in his re-election campaign. David and I have spent the past few years fighting … 0

I was saddened and angered when I read about the man from Salisbury arrested for cultivating 30 marijuana plants (Monitor Local and State, July 16). You know, some people want to get high and smoke without drinking alcohol or smoking cigarettes. Never mind it helps folks who are … 0

Letter: Ad nauseam

Thursday, August 14, 2014

It seems election season is in full swing already. Some commercials are incredible. The pharmaceutical companies’ lobbyists are working overtime trying, still, to get the Affordable Care Act rescinded. They sure don’t like being hit in the wallet. (The rest of us know what it’s like, now it’s … 1

Letter: Working-class candidate

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

Dan Feltes has my vote in the District 15 Senate primary because he truly understands the challenges facing working families. Dan himself grew up in a working-class family. His father worked at a factory upholstering sofas for his entire adult life and his mother held part-time jobs to … 11
