Thoughts following Veterans Day

Cabinet Editorials

“The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated (this ground), far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.” President Abraham Lincoln “I saw your sons and ...

SHARE benefit

Cabinet Letters

Kick off your holiday season by strolling through a magical, wondrous forest of beautifully decorated Christmas trees. SHARE Outreach Inc., in partnership with Gatherings at the Colonel Shepard House, LLC, will present Milford’s first annual Festival of Trees on Friday, Saturday and Sunday ...

New Hampshire simmers as a melting pot

Cabinet Editorials

Immigration is a powerful mechanism for the economic growth and development of American cities. A“grown-up” -New Hampshire, mature and stately, (after all, it is one of the original 13 colonies), reveals more and more cities that are home to New Americans: people from far parts of the ...

Price controls don’t put America first

Cabinet Editorials

President Trump is reportedly planning his most ambitious executive order yet. It would require pharmaceutical companies to sell drugs to Medicare and Medicaid for the same prices they charge in other developed countries, where medicines are often far cheaper. That might sound like the sort ...

Oversight of the presidency

Cabinet Letters

I saw Donald Trump’s television ad – can’t call it a campaign ad, though his voice-over “approves of this ad.” He wants his followers to see the impeachment proceedings as “Democrats wanting to undo the last election.” Well, no. That’s not it. The Constitution gives our ...

Pancreas Education Day

Cabinet Letters

By now you’ve most likely seen on the news the very public battle Alex Trebek is facing with pancreatic cancer. Unfortunately, not as newsworthy, but still a reality, are people in NH diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, pancreatitis or diseases of the pancreas. November is Pancreatic Cancer ...

Is it socialism?

Cabinet Letters

The big Republican attack on Democrats is that they are socialists. It’s all over Fox News, echoed by Republican candidates, Breitbart, Donald Trump, radio talk show hosts, etc. The basic definition of socialism is: an economic system advocating that the means of making, moving, and trading ...

COLA not cutting it for seniors

Cabinet Editorials

Most Social Security recipients are rightly disappointed in the 1.6 percent cost-of-living increase that they will be receiving in 2020. As in most years of the recent past, they will complain that the “yardstick” for determining if they will receive an increase – and if so, how much ...

Feltes: Why I’m running for governor

Cabinet Editorials

My amazing wife Erin and I live on Hope Avenue in the South End with our two wonderful daughters, Iris and Josie, our two dogs, Franklin and Roosevelt, and, like a lot of working families, a whole bunch of student loan debt. Right out of law school I had the honor of working as a legal aid ...

Endicott Park, industrial carnival

Cabinet Editorials

This photo by Charles A. Langdell, great uncle of Polly Cote of Milford, and it was probably taken Oct. 6, 1911, when Milford held a big industrial carnival. Langdell and his family went ‘to the high school grounds to see the exhibits,’ as noted by Charles’ mother, Cate, in her diary ...

Smear campaign

Cabinet Letters

“... A few weeks ago, I spoke up in New Hampshire at the invitation of the Sullivan County Republican Party, and the whole incident showed in microcosm how the far left has gained control of the media, the educational system, and the culture in general, without any significant pushback from ...

A Declaration of Conscience

Cabinet Letters

As the governmental chaos continues to escalate, worsening daily, I recalled an earlier time in our history when Sen. Joseph McCarthy created his personal brand of domestic chaos. I was reminded of the courageous actions of freshman Republican Senator from Maine, Margaret Chase Smith, who was ...

Support of net metering

Bedford Letters

I support government promotion of net metering. This program allows consumers to use energy from solar panels to reduce their electric bills. Increasing the use of solar panels further cuts energy costs in two ways; it reduces peak demand, and it lowers our share of regional transmission ...

It really is a war

Cabinet Editorials

The standard measuring stick for determining the human cost of the drug abuse crisis tends to be the number of lives claimed by it – more than 70,000 annually in the United States. As we have pointed out, that exceeds the total number of U.S. deaths in the Vietnam War (58,220). But an ...

Salvage what’s left

Cabinet Letters

I teach a self-defense system that enables weaker people to defend against stronger attackers. The way this is done is to continuously change the focus of your counter attack. For example, instead of repeatedly hitting your attacker in the head, you hit him/her in a different vulnerable target ...

Behavior is disgraceful

Cabinet Letters

To start, I do not have any students in the Milford School District. I am, however, acquainted with many students and their parents through the theater performances that I have been involved with at the Amato Center and with the Amherst PTA. I have been following the school board meetings for ...

Feltes for governor

Cabinet Letters

Sen. Dan Feltes continues to get the job done for the people of New Hampshire, and I am very grateful that he is running to be our state’s next governor. Dan not only understands the day-to-day struggles of everyday Granite Staters, he works everyday to implement solutions to address these ...

Decision not a proven strategy

Cabinet Letters

As a retired pulmonologist and member of the board of directors of Breathe New Hampshire, we are disappointed in the new state law raising the tobacco-products’ sales age, including e-cigarettes and vapes, to 19. This is not a proven public health strategy and is not based on ...
