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 ...

Clear the snow off your car

Cabinet Editorials

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 ...

Thumbing the Files for Jan. 17

Cabinet Editorials

71 years ago, 1948 The March of Dimes was beginning its annual campaign to raise money to fight polio. The Milford and Conant high school girls basketball teams played to a 29-29 tie. The W.E. Aubuchon Co. in Milford was looking for a trainee manager, “preferably married.” The ...

The ‘Heidi’ game and more

Cabinet Editorials

Ah, the Golden Globes. Missed ‘em again. Was I supposed to watch them? Actually, I’m with Nate Davis on this. He writes the “32 Things We Learned ...” column on the NFL for USA Today and he had this to say after wild card weekend: “Did anyone else want the Eagles-Bears game to ...

It’s about responsibility

Cabinet Editorials

Two things are coming as we approach the new year and it is wise to be aware that they loom: The first is the insanity of New Year’s Eve when far too many people give themselves permission to act in ways they would never act on any other day. They go a little nuts, they drink too much, they ...

Thumbing the Files for Dec. 27

Cabinet Editorials

71 years ago, 1947 Amherst published a 112-page book called “Amherst in the World Wars” to pay tribute to local veterans. Milford police officer Fred Ayers left for Canada to spend the holidays with his wife’s sister, Mrs. F. Christian, in Montreal. He joined his wife, who had gone to ...

It’s got to be bad

Cabinet Editorials

Friends, I know I cannot speak for you most times but I have a feeling that this time I can when I say this in response to this New York Time’s headline: “President Vladimir Putin of Russia praised President Trump’s plan to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria, calling it ‘the right ...

Thank you

Cabinet Letters

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

Cabinet Letters

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

Cabinet Letters

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’

Cabinet Letters

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

Cabinet Letters

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

Cabinet Letters

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 ...
