Cabinet Letters

Be a part of the solution

In a recent letter to the editor, State Rep. Fred Douchette, a Republican, scolded those who have vehemently criticized our current President Donald J. Trump. He instructed them to show respect for the Office of the President. I think Mr. Doucette has overlooked the fact that President ...

Defending the defenders

Five times in just the last month, sometimes in sub-zero temperatures, groups of environment-defenders have delayed delivery of 10,000 tons of coal shipped from West Virginia to the Merrimack Generation station in Bow. Protesters came from all over New England, representing groups such as ...

Can Bernie deliver?

Bernie Sanders is surging in Iowa and New Hampshire. His supporters are fervent, loyal and, more important, they believe a vote for Bernie is a vote for: Medicare for All, elimination of all student debt, the Green New Deal and everything else that Bernie rails for in his speeches. It’s ...

Why only two articles of impeachment?

It is my considered opinion that the House Democrats committed a strategic blunder in specifying only two articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump. The apparent justification was to present that charges in as simple a manner as possible. But simple for whom? I would assert ...

Zaino running for school board

Carbon fee and dividend is the answer

Worldwide, we have been seeing a climate-fueled crisis from the wildfires in Australia, extreme flooding in Indonesia and tornadoes in the Midwestern states. In order to combat this ongoing crisis, we need to employ the carbon fee and dividend plan. This is a bipartisan based plan where a fee ...

When other people’s money runs out

Supporters of (Bernie) Sanders, (Elizabeth) Warren and others who campaign on free health care, free college, guaranteed income and other nonsense should look at the situation in France. Years of promises of less work, guaranteed pension with early retirement and other perks enacted by prior ...

Bernie Sanders understands

Bernie Sanders believes health care is a human right, not a privilege. This is a corollary of The Declaration of Independence, since the human rights proclaimed therein (life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness) can’t be fully realized without a guarantee of health care. Why is Medicare ...

Warren not satisfied with crumbs

If the United States is such a great and wealthy country, why are so many Americans struggling to make ends meet? Why has our country not seen more progress in our social life? For decades, many politicians from both major parties have been telling us to be satisfied with the crumbs that fall ...

Vote for Bill Weld

As a registered independent in New Hampshire, I intend to pick up a Republican primary ballot and vote for Bill Weld for president. I encourage all independents and Republicans to do the same. I don’t agree with many of his policy positions, but he is at least intelligent, moderate, ...

Be a part of the solution

I offer no apology for what I am writing. If you disagree, or find my position offensive, I’m perfectly fine with that. We can agree to disagree. I have lived through numerous presidents in my lifetime. I have never seen a president scrutinized 24/7 over every word he speaks, facial ...

Thank you

Throughout 2019, the Milford Historical Society created an event for every Open House to celebrate the 40th anniversary of our move into the Carey House. None of the events would have been possible without the support of financial contributors, visitors who came to enjoy them or the donation ...

Climate change is here

Climate change is here, it is real, and it is the most urgent existential threat of our lifetime. Australia is on fire, temperatures and sea levels are rising faster than expected, and American policies are going backwards to benefit corporate interests. We don’t have time to embrace ...

Thank you to our community!

The Salvation Army would like to thank everyone in the community who contributed to making this past Christmas possible. The Salvation Army was able to serve 623 families. This includes 1,324 children. Serving 623 families at Christmas would not have been possible without the help of the ...

Disappointment and anger

New Hampshire Magazine just published and sent out a list of their calendar of events. I noticed one event in particular that was called “Elite PBR: Unleash the Beast,” which is being hosted at SNHU Arena in Manchester on Jan. 18-19. When I read what this event was about, I experienced an ...

Getting our country back on track

A while back I had the opportunity to attend and meet Joe Biden at an event in Manchester. I was interested in his viewpoint on many issues, health care in particular. I was impressed with his ideas. We need to move forward and continue to improve health care. Tearing it down without having ...

Narcan kits in schools?

How is having Narcan kits available in some New Hampshire schools going to help our opioid crisis? It only invites permission to use drugs, because the users know they will be saved! Why, oh why, in the world does New Hampshire not make it mandatory to teach in our schools about addiction? ...

Supporting an important resource

I want to thank Gov. Chris Sununu and Executive Councilors Ted Gatsas, Russell Prescott and Michael Cryans for their recent vote to continue Bethany Christian Services’ contract with the state of New Hampshire. Bethany Christian Services provides support for foster children in New ...

Concerns about our N.H. State House
