Cabinet Letters

Shame on you

I read with interest your reporting on the current BOE/Superintendent/Teacher kerfuffle. Lots of issues here but one to me hits me squarely. Since safety is and should always be the paramount concern of our government the comments regarding a police presence being misguided by Ms Tlapa and Mr. ...

The benefits of small business

We all know and should appreciate local businesses. In small towns throughout Southern New Hampshire we are used to seeing and visiting our favorite boutiques and coffee shops that resonate the beautiful local culture. But small business goes much deeper than that. The benefits that small ...

Voting records

Below are the voting records of the Amherst House members for June 5-6. It is a most likely except on a very few bills that every Democrat in NH voted almost identically. Please note that your Amherst Republican members of the House, Reps. Panasiti and Sanborn voted NOT to pass on all the ...

Best wishes

It has come to my attention that your fine investigative reporter, Kathy Cleveland, is retiring from the Milford Cabinet effective June 5. I’ve not seen anything about it published in the paper, as of yet. I would like to take this opportunity to make a few comments about this milestone in ...

Not pro life

Alabama and Georgia legislators are not pro life. They may be anti-abortion, but they are not pro life. Their states consistently have high infant mortality rates. Pro life people would work to keep more of those infants alive. Georgia has one of the highest maternal mortality rates. People who ...

Two sides

As the old saying goes, “There are two sides to every story.” So, as former Rep. Peter Hansen shared his views on some recent legislation in his May 16th Letter to the Editor, here’s another perspective for the readers to consider. SB193 would prohibit the sale of certain furniture ...

On the move

After 40 years at St. Patrick’s Church, the SHARE Clothing Barn is moving. The clothing part of SHARE’s mission will ultimately move to the SHARE Center at 1 Columbus Avenue where the rest of SHARE’s services are offered. Dates for donations and shopping as well as new hours will be ...

A hidden gem

My wife and I are frequent diners availing ourselves of Nashua’s many eating establishments. Being empty nesters, we have entered into this enjoyable--though regretful--period of our lives. One of several area restaurants we popularize is The Arbor Restaurant located at 57 Palm St., off the ...

Making progress

For the second winter, The New Hampshire Wellpoint Foundation, in conjunction and in cooperation with the Hampshire Dome, again offered a free opportunity for seniors 70 years of age and older in the Souhegan Valley to walk, jog and socialize in a safe environment. The “Walkie-Talkie” crew ...

Let your representatives know

SB 193 bans products containing flame retardants for alleged health reasons but allowing those same “unhealthy” products in schools, hospitals and yes even jails. Both Representatives Murray and Radhakrishnan voted for the bill , Panasiti voted no and Sanborn was absent. SB 205, allowing ...

Addressing climate change

Climate change isn’t happening 100 years from now. It’s happening now. Here in New Hampshire we’re seeing increased flooding along the Seacoast due to sea level rise. We’re also experiencing a decrease in maple syrup production due to changing weather patterns. Some of our largest ...

Thank you

A heartfelt thank you to the organizers of the Souhegan Sustainability Fair, which took place on May 4 at the Wilton-Lyndeborough Cooperative Middle High School. As a former WLC board member I understand the value and challenge of forming bonds between the school and the wider community. This ...

Hiring fair earns praise

Thank you for the article regarding the Milford High School hiring fair. Not only does this promote hiring to fill much needed positions, but it also assists our future generation in promoting responsibility and a good work ethic. I must, however, point out an error. You mentioned Crestwood ...

Recreation Dept. thanks volunteers

On Saturday, April 20th, Milford Recreation Department held its Annual Easter Egg Hunt at Milford Town Hall Auditorium. We had over 300 people join us for our event. The Recreation Department wants to give a big thank you to Anrik Irrigation and Hitchiner Manufacturing for being our 2019 Easter ...

Thanks to all

With the help of many, many volunteers and sponsors, the Milford Historical Society’s April Open House was a wonderful success. The first event celebrating the 40th anniversary of our move into the Carey House was sponsored by the Milford Rotary Club. “A Visit From The Hutchinson Family” ...

Helping the planet with solar energy

We the people can do a lot of good for our earth if we support, develop and use solar energy in the right places. Where and how we implement solar makes the difference between reaping the most benefits for the planet rather than simply swapping one good for another that results in zero net ...

A violation

“On America Day celebrating our great country at the Epping High School, a freshman student chose to wear a Trump T-shirt for the event. The school dress code does not forbid this attire. The student was contacted by the principal of that school and told she had two choices, one to cover up ...

N.H. families are ready

Decades. That’s how long New Hampshire’s mental health system has needed critical attention and investment. Civilly committed patients need to be removed from the secure psychiatric unit (SPU) located within the Men’s prison in Concord. Patients who need admission to the state’s acute ...

Journalism masquerade

Just when I think Trump can do no more for me, he surprises with another triumph. The latest is emphatically exposing the Main Stream Media (MSM) for breaking basic rules of bona fide journalism. They have committed figurative suicide, and by choosing to go all-in, they should pay the price for ...

Reinstate the funding

Democrats in the New Hampshire House of Representatives removed funding for the state Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, and there’s simply no excuse for it. In response to the Governor Sununu’s proposed budget, the Democrat-led House Finance Committee vowed to remove all of the ...
