Put aside differences

The people of Parkland were not as fortunate as I was my freshman year at Manchester West High School. Although we practiced a variety of safety procedures every year since kindergarten, nothing could have prepared us for the real situation. Not a single shot was ever fired in Manchester, but ...

Vote for Mike Akillian

I’m running for re-election as an Amherst Selectman. Here’s why, and why I’d like your vote in March. My wife, Carol, and I have lived in Amherst since 2009. In that time, besides serving twice as selectman, I’ve served on the town’s Ways & Means Committee, the Capital ...

Hoyt seeks vote

Select Board?

In Wilton, men are men and so are women, at least in the opinion of Selectmen William Condra and Kermit Williams. During the February 12, 2018, selectmen’s meeting, the two defeated a motion proposed by Selectwoman Kellie-Sue Boissonnault to change the official name of the group from its ...

It may come as a surprise to many, but our little town of Milford played an important role in African American History. Within the year, we are dedicating a large area in the museum and have assembled an experienced team to create a new exhibit, but we need you to help make the story complete. ...

‘NO. 1 MOM’ Samaritan

Returning to my Milford apartment on Tuesday morning Jan. 23 from Cumberland’s, still-melting snow from in front of Granite Square Apartments was found to have melted overnight and refrozen at end of the private road ending at Bridge Street – black ice for about six feet before return to ...

My take on safety and security at Souhegan

While safety/security data and solutions are still under consideration at Souhegan High School (SHS), it is time to review the status and state some facts from this SHS School Board member’s perspective. The SHS School Board must weigh the concerns of all members of the community, because ...

Pumpkin Fest

From 2000 until 2016, the Milford Improvement Team coordinated the Milford Pumpkin Festival on behalf of the town of Milford and its citizens. When the Executive Director of MIT left the organization in June 2017, no replacement was hired. Not wanting to put the festival at risk for ...

On Jan. 17, the Public Works and Highways House Committee will be hearing testimony on HB 1706. The bill reinstates the financing for the Wild Goose boat launch on Lake Sunapee killed by the Senate in the last term and buried by the governor shortly thereafter. Very briefly, after all, there ...

We can do better

Last month, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published its annual data findings on U.S. drug overdose deaths. Once again, New Hampshire was featured as one of the top ranking U.S. states for drug overdose death rates in the country (No. 3). In October, UNH’s Granite State Poll ...

Renovation

As the architect of the original building in 1980 and of the addition in 1996, I am concerned that Kathy Cleveland’s article on her interview with chief Mark Reams may be misinterpreted: When a detainee is released from the cell area there are four ways to get him/her out of the building – ...
