Simplicity is best approach for proposed monuments

Cabinet Editorials

Milford’s war monuments are all simple and respectful, and we believe all future monuments should be too. So we agree with Vietnam War veteran Rodney Richey’s assessment that the proposal for a Vietnam War memorial would be best as, in his words, “a simple granite memorial and ...

Thumbing the Files for Jan. 31

Cabinet Editorials

A brighter future for New Hampshire’s students

A little of this and that

Cabinet Editorials

OK, this is serious, and I’m telling you because I want you to be aware that you, too, might be in scam danger: The other night I got an email from my credit card company — I have a Chase Bank Southwest Airlines Visa, which I tell you just in case it’s pertinent — asking if I ...

Leaders prove incapable of compromise to achieve greater good

Cabinet Letters

The inability of our elected leaders to compromise has led to the longest government shutdown in U.S. history. I am proud of my work as a federal employee in service to the country I love. Federal workers nationwide are forced to stay at home and wait for the government to reopen, and are no ...

They are as a group, the people not doing their job

Bedford Letters

Now that the latest Federal Government shutdown has been resolved (at least for 3 weeks that is), I would like to suggest that the people that should be most impacted by a Federal Government shutdown, members of Congress, are the least affected. They are as a group, the people not doing their ...

Americans Could Love Trump

HB Letters

I was crossing the Hudson to Nashua bridge in December and spotted a man asking for money. I thought to myself, I can help him. I pulled a $10 bill out of my wallet to give him. He walked to my car with great effort on his part. He looked me right in the eye and say “May God bless you.” I ...

Necessity, unfortunately, always may win out

Cabinet Editorials

Is there a more common phrase during local budget season than this: “Seems like a nice thing to have, but not a necessity.” Perhaps “We can’t afford it,” but they’re close. The latest use of the “Seems like a ...” phrase came from Peter Moustakis of the Amherst Ways & ...

March smaller, but very important

Cabinet Editorials

There were fewer than there had been two years ago, fewer than last year, but the 34 men, women and kids (three) at the Wilton Peace Action sister event – one of an estimated 350 nationwide – for the third Women’s March. The big one was in Washington but this smaller one in Wilton was ...

Term limits

Cabinet Letters

Please enthusiastically support term limits. Our system is broken. Term limits is the only possible solution. Our country depends upon it.

To the community

Cabinet Letters

The New Year is a good time to look back and acknowledge those who have helped us to achieve so much for families in need in Greater Nashua this past year. We at the Front Door Agency are especially grateful for the strong support from area Rotary Clubs whose members often work tirelessly ...

What’s changed?

Cabinet Letters

President Obama was in favor of a wall. Nancy Pelosi was in favor of a wall. Hillary Clinton was in favor of a wall. Chuck Schumer was in favor of a wall. What has changed? Oh, yeah. A Republican is now in the White House. Maybe someday the Democrats will care more about the country ...

Solution to climate change

Cabinet Letters

We have a major problem on our hands for 2019, climate change. This issue isn’t going to solve itself and will continue to get worse if we fail to act. But there is a ray of light at the end of this dark tunnel, carbon pricing. Carbon pricing is when a government places a fee or tax on ...

An open letter

Cabinet Letters

Dear Mr. Watkins, I am impressed with your empirical evidence of arrests , criminal charges, criminal convictions and overall apprehensions at the border. Does a wall make sense? The arrest data makes the case that border security does not allow people to pour into the country undetected, ...

Marriage age needs to be higher

Cabinet Editorials

Rep. Cassandra Levesque has introduced a common sense bill to raise New Hampshire’s marriage age to 18, something any rational adult should be able to support. Right now, girls who are 16 can marry under a relatively new law that raised the age from 13, which was absurd. But Levesque, who ...

Just in case you don’t think about such things as the amount of snow on the roof of your car and the danger it imposes, the state police have sent out this reminder: Clear that snow off or face a fine of $250 for a first offense, $500 for a second, and then possible license ...

Top 10 Democrat contenders

Cabinet Editorials

Recently, we posted rankings for the top three Democratic presidential contenders for 2020. However, when as many as 40 candidates have either confirmed they are running or are widely reported to be considering runs, this seems inadequate. Therefore, we are listing our top 10 contenders as of ...
