Cabinet Letters

Making progress

For the second winter, The New Hampshire Wellpoint Foundation, in conjunction and in cooperation with the Hampshire Dome, again offered a free opportunity for seniors 70 years of age and older in the Souhegan Valley to walk, jog and socialize in a safe environment. The “Walkie-Talkie” crew ...

Let your representatives know

SB 193 bans products containing flame retardants for alleged health reasons but allowing those same “unhealthy” products in schools, hospitals and yes even jails. Both Representatives Murray and Radhakrishnan voted for the bill , Panasiti voted no and Sanborn was absent. SB 205, allowing ...

Addressing climate change

Climate change isn’t happening 100 years from now. It’s happening now. Here in New Hampshire we’re seeing increased flooding along the Seacoast due to sea level rise. We’re also experiencing a decrease in maple syrup production due to changing weather patterns. Some of our largest ...

Thank you

A heartfelt thank you to the organizers of the Souhegan Sustainability Fair, which took place on May 4 at the Wilton-Lyndeborough Cooperative Middle High School. As a former WLC board member I understand the value and challenge of forming bonds between the school and the wider community. This ...

Hiring fair earns praise

Thank you for the article regarding the Milford High School hiring fair. Not only does this promote hiring to fill much needed positions, but it also assists our future generation in promoting responsibility and a good work ethic. I must, however, point out an error. You mentioned Crestwood ...

Recreation Dept. thanks volunteers

On Saturday, April 20th, Milford Recreation Department held its Annual Easter Egg Hunt at Milford Town Hall Auditorium. We had over 300 people join us for our event. The Recreation Department wants to give a big thank you to Anrik Irrigation and Hitchiner Manufacturing for being our 2019 Easter ...

Thanks to all

With the help of many, many volunteers and sponsors, the Milford Historical Society’s April Open House was a wonderful success. The first event celebrating the 40th anniversary of our move into the Carey House was sponsored by the Milford Rotary Club. “A Visit From The Hutchinson Family” ...

Helping the planet with solar energy

We the people can do a lot of good for our earth if we support, develop and use solar energy in the right places. Where and how we implement solar makes the difference between reaping the most benefits for the planet rather than simply swapping one good for another that results in zero net ...

A violation

“On America Day celebrating our great country at the Epping High School, a freshman student chose to wear a Trump T-shirt for the event. The school dress code does not forbid this attire. The student was contacted by the principal of that school and told she had two choices, one to cover up ...

N.H. families are ready

Decades. That’s how long New Hampshire’s mental health system has needed critical attention and investment. Civilly committed patients need to be removed from the secure psychiatric unit (SPU) located within the Men’s prison in Concord. Patients who need admission to the state’s acute ...

Journalism masquerade

Just when I think Trump can do no more for me, he surprises with another triumph. The latest is emphatically exposing the Main Stream Media (MSM) for breaking basic rules of bona fide journalism. They have committed figurative suicide, and by choosing to go all-in, they should pay the price for ...

Reinstate the funding

Democrats in the New Hampshire House of Representatives removed funding for the state Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, and there’s simply no excuse for it. In response to the Governor Sununu’s proposed budget, the Democrat-led House Finance Committee vowed to remove all of the ...

Inspiring

Kids don’t vote, and they don’t donate to political candidates. In other words, they often don’t have a voice with elected officials. Fortunately, U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster understands the need to advocate on behalf of children. She spoke at Save the Children Action Network’s recent ...

Alcohol Awareness Month

April is Alcohol Awareness Month. As a member of our community, you understand the urgent need for addiction recovery solutions. New Hampshire’s lack of treatment funding, rural surroundings and high prescription rates contribute to make the drug and alcohol dependency in New Hampshire among ...

Apologize, governor

I take offense at the inaccuracy of statements made by Gov. Chris Sununu in last Saturday’s speech on the steps of MY house, the state capital. I am a New Hampshire resident, taxpayer and deserve to be heard. Regardless of party affiliation, you are the governor of ALL of New Hampshire and ...

Incurable cancers

The cancer problem was solved in 1931 when the Nobel Prize for Physiology and Medicine went to German Dr. Heinrich Warburg who had established that any cancer can be defeated by adding extra oxygen to the body. The state-of-the-art treatment these days is the hyperbaric chamber, available at ...

Divisive politics

I’m not sure why an op-ed by a guest writer from Canterbury/Loudon, which unfairly attacked a state representative from Concord, would appear in our local newspaper. I am referring to Jose Eduardo Cambrils’ written assault on Rep. Safiya Wazir in the April 4 edition of the Cabinet. I ...

Put a halt to the spending

The Democrats in the New Hampshire Legislature seem to have lost their minds. The sheer number of bills with enormous price tags have been passed by the Legislature is staggering. As it stands, spending for the 2020-21 budget would grow by $319 million. In the 2022-23 budget, spending would ...

Why reward illegals?

According to a March 22, 2019, article in The Telegraph concerning the recent NH House of Representatives vote on HB 397, 203 democrats and one republican voted to reward some 15,000 illegals in our state with State driver’s licenses. The rationale given by Rep Casey Conley (D-Dover) was that ...

Licenses for people here illegally

Has the lefts agenda dawned on you yet? First, they want to cripple law enforcement, not allow the state and local police to work with the feds regarding illegal immigration. Then they want to abolish ICE. They have pretty much lost the voter id argument, so now the latest ploy, let’s ...
