SHARE benefit

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 ...

Oversight of the presidency

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

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?

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 ...

Smear campaign

“... 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

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 ...

Salvage what’s left

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

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

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

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 ...

Support Elizabeth Warren

Not too long ago, I spent a good deal of time reflecting on what I might do to give back to the world around me. I had worked hard at my jobs, had raised a wonderful daughter who is already giving back as an environmental consultant, and had taken care of my friends and family. One skill that I ...

Great news for Milford

As the Sept. 26 edition of The Cabinet went to press, state budget negotiations were underway between the Legislature and Gov. Chris Sununu. The Sept. 26 article, New Hampshire citizens need a budget now, spoke to the state budget impasse due to the governor’s July 1 veto of the state budget ...

A ‘pig in a poke’

Will someone in the Democrat party in New Hampshire please do a little research into what single payer government run health systems have done to, not for, the citizens of those countries that have such a scheme in place. Start with the National Health Service in the UK which is the oldest ...

Klobuchar has proven ‘electability’

I just returned from a “Hot Dish House Party” given for the Amy Klobuchar campaign. That is the Midwest version of our “pot luck suppers.” Amy Klobuchar is on my short list of presidential candidates. We Democrats have a great field of candidates and the debates going on within the ...

Still providing quality entertainment

In a recent article announcing the opening of Zingers, in the Colonel Shephard House in Milford, your readers may have been given the impression that Nelson’s Candy and Music venue in Wilton has been closed. Nothing could be further from the truth. We continue to offer a unique listening ...

Put the country first

Time has come for all good men and women to come to the aid of their country. Robert S. Mueller has and all Americans who believe in the Constitution of this great country need to as well. I have been listening to an audible version of the Mueller Report. Mueller’s testimony last week was ...

Clear and present danger

Robert Mueller’s sworn testimony before Congress made clear, once again, that Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to the United States of America. While Mr. Mueller testified that Russia engaged in a “sweeping and systematic” attack on the 2016 election, Trump refuses to even ...

Settled silence

If man-made climate change is indeed the most urgent threat facing humanity, then experts should embrace the opportunity to make that case and convince non-believers. Unfortunately, the most strident advocates for climate-change remediation seem uninterested in coming to the table. Not ...

Continued progress

I’d like to thank Gov. Chris Sununu for signing three important mental health bills into law late last week: House Bill 239, Senate Bill 80, and Senate Bill 177. House Bill 239 makes it easier for counselors seeking to get certified to undergo the necessary processes. SB 80 further deals with ...

Full support

Despite claims that Gov. Chris Sununu’s recent decision to veto HB365, more commonly known as the net-metering bill, is a step backwards, clear-minded New Hampshire residents should fully support the governor’s veto. I’m glad that Gov. Sununu didn’t give into corporate pressures on ...
