Boycott Burt’s Hot Dog Day

June 13 marks Goffstown Representative John Burt’s 8th annual Hot Dog Day at State House. Although this is a fundraiser for the Granite State Paw Rescuers which is certainly a worthy organization, I am asking that elected officials skip this event. Representative Burt has a history of making ...

Trains will not solve the traffic problem

We are stunned that the Union Leader would print such a misleading statement on their FaceBook page — specifically that a poll “finds 75.5% percentage of Granite State residents favor passenger train service between Boston and southern New Hampshire.” The poll they cite obviously did ...

Open house

The Milford Historical Society is getting ready for the third in a year long series of events celebrating the 40th anniversary of being in the Carey House Museum. Each month a different program is being presented and June’s program promises to be very exciting. We are delighted that Milford ...

Be prepared!

Bedford’s current Master Plan, which was last revised in 2010, is rife with the goals and language of the “Congress for the New Urbanism”. The CNU.org is a group of about 2,500 people nationwide which espouses the radical philosophy of “new urbanism”. This philosophy is also espoused ...

Possibly The Worst Road in Bedford

I hope most of my neighbors would agree that the Beaver Lane/Blanford Place continuum is one of the worst roads in Bedford. It is a heavily travelled road used by resident neighbors and other travelers going between Rte. 101 and North Amherst Road. It is filled with large cracks and potholes ...

Truth vs Believable-Lies

Is it true that “noise from windmills causes cancer,” as President Trump claimed? Politifact.com and the American Cancer Society report that there is no evidence for this. Most people are fearful of cancer, however. Once their fear is aroused, people opt for survival. Trump’s claim ...

Common sense legislation

In regard to “Why reward illegals” and “Licenses for people here illegally”, it would be constructive to step back and take a deep breath. Please, we need to talk about this. We can all agree that we have a broken immigration system that needs to be fixed. The 2013 bipartisan Senate ...

Update: Stevens-Buswell Community Center

In case you missed the open house last October at the future Stevens-Buswell Community Center, the Bedford Historical Society will be giving you another opportunity to tour the main floor of the building on Sunday, April 28, from 2:00 until 4:00. We have made many changes to the building as it ...

What constitutes a socialist?

My prior two letters identified socialism’s antithetical morality and dysfunctional economic theory that assuredly leads to oppression, violence, privation and lost liberty. Most of the world’s economies are a mix of markets and socialistic government control and ownership, but ...

Thank everyone for their votes

I want to thank everyone for their votes on March 12. I am honored that the people have elected me to the Bedford Town Council. I will do my best to keep the best interests of the Town and the Residents as a top priority. Again, I thank you for the trust you have placed in me.

It was a good day for Bedford!

We wish to thank Bedford voters for turning out on March 12 and 13. Many received an unsigned, unauthorized flyer from a California PAC (despite the NH name) that attempted to fool people into thinking their recommendations would “make Bedford a great place to live”. Town Council ...

HB 415 would only allow ballot voting

We hear constant complaints that by enforcing clean election laws, we are “suppressing the vote”. But now Democrats, those crafty devils, have sponsored HB 415, a bill which would completely take away the right of the townspeople to vote on SB2 by ballot, which means if SB2 is defeated, ...

Why Does Socialism Invariably Fail?

The functional results of socialism are consistent with its antithetical morality discussed in a prior letter. The free market is the only possible way of determining commodities’ true economic values and the economical allocation of scarce resources; i.e., an agreeable monetary price based ...

I would support the President

72000 deaths in 2018 from opioid overdose is a national emergency. 700,400 people, the projected number of people that will die of an opioid overdose from 2016 to 2025, is a national emergency. 39770 people dying from firearm injuries in 2016 is a national emergency. 5,790 children being ...

Councilor seeks re-election

My name is David Gilbert, and I am running for re-election to the Bedford Town Council. I want to continue to represent the residents of Bedford by insuring that we continue to provide a high level of services at a reasonable price. I believe our goals should include maintaining our appeal as ...

Diane O’Neil for Bedford

I am writing to support Diane O’Neil for Bedford Town Clerk because I believe she is the most qualified person running for the position. As a candidate, she brings 10 years of town government experience and over 25 years of professional experience. I am positive Diane will deliver exceptional ...

Diane will bring experience

I am writing in support of Diane O’Neil as candidate for Town Clerk. Our kids played softball together and I met Diane through my coaching in the Bedford Sports Recreational program and got to know her well. Over the years, I found Diane to be available and always supportive of the needs ...
