Local control of high schools ends

Most people are unaware that the New Hampshire Department of Education has voted to end local control of high school curricula. Even fewer realize that the rule moving the credit authorization from local to state control (ED 1400) will come before the Joint Legislative Committee on ...

Stop the insults

I am honored to hear the Paul Revere bell ring each day over our town and recall the echoes of liberty that our forefathers and foremothers fought and sacrificed so much to achieve for us. I have recently learned that many slave and free black Americans also shared in the struggle for liberty ...

Support Sununu’s decision

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 Sununu didn’t give into corporate pressures on this ...

Let us not repeat history

Historically, when times are bad economically, we look for something or someone to blame. This tendency becomes dangerous when it is a group we blame. This happened in pre-war Germany when, left devastated by World War I, the Germans blamed the Jews and the intellectuals. I see this same ...

Construction detours

While the construction continues along Nashua St. in Milford, please understand that the detours are set in place to help you get to your destination as easily and quickly as possible. But, please, please keep in mind that this detour runs through a heavily-populated, young-children (and pet) ...

A job well done

On behalf of the Souhegan Valley Transportation Collaborative (aka The Blue Bus) during National Transit Week from June 17-21, we thank the many employees and drivers of the Nashua Transportation System for their hard work. Dispatch answers phone calls and ensures that schedules are efficient. ...

Shame on you

I read with interest your reporting on the current BOE/Superintendent/Teacher kerfuffle. Lots of issues here but one to me hits me squarely. Since safety is and should always be the paramount concern of our government the comments regarding a police presence being misguided by Ms Tlapa and Mr. ...

The benefits of small business

We all know and should appreciate local businesses. In small towns throughout Southern New Hampshire we are used to seeing and visiting our favorite boutiques and coffee shops that resonate the beautiful local culture. But small business goes much deeper than that. The benefits that small ...

Voting records

Below are the voting records of the Amherst House members for June 5-6. It is a most likely except on a very few bills that every Democrat in NH voted almost identically. Please note that your Amherst Republican members of the House, Reps. Panasiti and Sanborn voted NOT to pass on all the ...

Best wishes

It has come to my attention that your fine investigative reporter, Kathy Cleveland, is retiring from the Milford Cabinet effective June 5. I’ve not seen anything about it published in the paper, as of yet. I would like to take this opportunity to make a few comments about this milestone in ...

Not pro life

Alabama and Georgia legislators are not pro life. They may be anti-abortion, but they are not pro life. Their states consistently have high infant mortality rates. Pro life people would work to keep more of those infants alive. Georgia has one of the highest maternal mortality rates. People who ...

Two sides

As the old saying goes, “There are two sides to every story.” So, as former Rep. Peter Hansen shared his views on some recent legislation in his May 16th Letter to the Editor, here’s another perspective for the readers to consider. SB193 would prohibit the sale of certain furniture ...

On the move

After 40 years at St. Patrick’s Church, the SHARE Clothing Barn is moving. The clothing part of SHARE’s mission will ultimately move to the SHARE Center at 1 Columbus Avenue where the rest of SHARE’s services are offered. Dates for donations and shopping as well as new hours will be ...

A hidden gem

My wife and I are frequent diners availing ourselves of Nashua’s many eating establishments. Being empty nesters, we have entered into this enjoyable--though regretful--period of our lives. One of several area restaurants we popularize is The Arbor Restaurant located at 57 Palm St., off the ...

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 ...
