Cabinet Letters

Leaders prove incapable of compromise to achieve greater good

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 ...

Term limits

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

To the community

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?

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

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

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, ...

Thank you

The families of Brandon “Memo” Kluz wish to express their deep appreciation to those who offered such kindness, support and messages of sympathy over the past weeks. We are grateful to all who have made donations to Brandon’s memorial fund from which we plan to make the Milford Skate ...

This needs to stop

Last week’s article about school students needing more sleep is laughable. This same topic has been floating around for some time, usually referencing some hallowed institution for research. These experts never mention the bad habits that they are creating for these kids. Have any of them ...

Gratitude

On Dec. 8, the community of Milford as well as friends and family from other towns gathered to honor the memory of Corey Stoller. Thanks to the donation of time and talent from the Murphy-Clark Band and Morgan Keating and the Russell Hill Band, a concert was performed at the Congregational ...

‘Operation Kindness’

Last week, my husband and I, as well as the other neighbors on our street, were treated to four nights of sweet treats as well as inspirational messages. A family of four children on General Amherst Road initiated and carried out a program they called “Operation Kindness,” which was to ...

SHARE gives thanks

Last week, SHARE Outreach prepared Christmas for 462 children and another 185 households with adults. We were a little exhausted, but exhilarated, knowing that these families have gifts and food to celebrate the holiday. And believe me, they are very grateful. We could not have done it ...

Insane

For Trump to say he’ll “shut down the government” if his wall doesn’t get funding is insane; not to mention blackmail in the highest degree. To then suggest there would be “a revolt” if he didn’t get his way, constitutes inciting a riot! Why would the president of our country do ...

Holiday cheer

This week we had the pleasure of attending the Nashua South and Elm St. holiday concerts. Our two granddaughters play trumpet (and French horn) at each school, and it was a wonderful experience listening to them and the other students displaying what they have been practicing for months. ...

Advocate

For most girls, their 16th birthday is expected to be a day full of joy. For Alexis McKinney, however, an ambitious teen who was looking toward adulthood, her sweet 16 was spent being mourned at her own funeral. On July 11, 2016, a party thrown for fun memories resulted in Alexis’s death ...

Crimes against humanity

On Sunday, Nov. 25, I viewed online images and read news stories of U.S. Border Agents use of tear gas to envelop immigrant women and children, who were screaming and coughing in pain. Over the past year, I heard of stories of young immigrant children being taken out of their mother’s arms ...

Support Gardner, save primary

To the voters of Greater Nashua: The Democrats have taken over the Legislature. I get that. The voters of New Hampshire have spoken. But did anyone expect that the Democrat-controlled Legislature’s FIRST official action will be to endanger New Hampshire’s first in the nation primary by ...

Inappropriate vote

At the last Bedford School Board meeting, members were pressured to vote whether to allow private developers access to the high school’s sewer and water lines for their proposed apartment project. The developers apparently felt that if they had a confirmed source of tie-in, it would ...

This month, sites in the Milford area will be among 5,000 U.S. drop-off locations collecting shoebox gifts for children overseas during Operation Christmas Child’s National Collection Week, Nov. 12-19. Milford families, churches and groups are busy transforming empty shoeboxes into fun ...
