Talkback

One more time: You are confused and have it exactly backward. NONE of the claims made by deniers and reposted by you and sail come from science sources. Instead they come DIRECTLY from denier sources that actively manipulate the truth for their "ideology, politics, and agenda. Which is why both of you rarely post the links to the sources of fraudulent claims. My posts are either science sites or provide DIRECT links to the research supporting the statements I make. ...(full comment)

Editorial: LGBT community should support constitutional amendment

Sigh, and no. Look at where we are with the women's rights. We've seen the ERA hung up across the country, 3 states short of passage for the last 30 plus years, after well more than a century of advocacy for equal rights. Supporting half a loaf while leaving out the most vulnerable and persecuted means transfolk will *never* be included. Mis-assumptions and misjudgements driven by ignorance play on fear and predominate, even if they are light years from the truth. ...(full comment)

Editorial: LGBT community should support constitutional amendment

Uniforms are the way to go. Everybody is judged on who they are, not what they are wearing. That is a plus for everybody. That policy enables the students to get to know each other with no perceived notions about them. I use to get a chuckle at my daughter's school where uniforms were required. The kids all had different shoes. No two pair of shoes were alike. Another plus, is the students do not have breakdowns at home about what to wear. No "I have nothing to wear" scenes. Uniforms are less expensive also in the long run. Prevents the kids from being a slave to fashion. ...(full comment)

Letter: What it means to vote for the Republican Party

Once more, the actual science behind each of your headlines does NOT support the claims those headlines make. ALL those purported "headlines" are from denier sites that distort and lie about the science. And George Will has been called out repeatedly for the inaccurate claims he has made whenever he writes about climate change. ...(full comment)

My Turn: The building blocks of obesity and a parent’s role

Private schools can have students from anywhere attend. The Trinity team had a kid from Lebanon, Concord, Goffstown and Derry back a few years ago when Frank coached. There is nothing wrong with that. These are public schools and that is the issue. Not saying there is a any impropriety here, just explaining the difference. Hope this gets worked out so the kids can play. ...(full comment)

Letter: What it means to vote for the Republican Party

It seems the big issue is not the kids but the appearance of impropriety between the father/son Alosa tag team. That is the issue that needs to be cleared. I find it somewhat suspicious that there is a uniform feeling toward Alosa's team buy the folks in division 1. Furthermore, it is not unheard of for parents to choose a school based on the sports team there. Not quite a stellar reason on my list but it is fairly common and it's a free country. ...(full comment)

It's hard to know where to begin. All hydrocodone is equally potent. Mixing acetaminophen with hydrocodone does not make it less potent, which you seem to suggest. There is only one medication that the FDA recognizes as "abuse deterrent," and it does not have hydrocodone. There is no similar medication that fits your description. Vicodin is schedule three, and Zohydro is schedule two with no abuse deterrence, so they are no terribly similar. You seem to be making stuff up. ...(full comment)

Zohydro ban unlikely in N.H., as doctors and pharmacists voluntarily postpone using it

I do not follow nhiaa sports or basketball at all, however I find it ironic a Pinkerton official is opposed to what Pembroke Academy is alleged to have done by way of recruiting. A friend's of mine son was admitted to Pinkerton for the sole purpose of playing on the hockey team, they live twenty miles from Derry, and there were others from afar who were also big contributors to Pinkertons back to back hockey championships a two or three years ago. Also if this were a school such as Brady, Trinity, St Thomas , or Bishop Guertin, would this be an issue? They enroll kids from various Towns. ...(full comment)
