Cabinet Letters

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

The following is a statement from New Hampshire State House Representative Deborah Stevens from Nashua in June 2019: (sic) “I have visited gun sites where there is open discussion about shooting ppl. And about total anarchy, too. Total unbridled violence ... so pathetic to have those values, ...

More horror stories

So the horror stories about national health insurance have started. Just remember, people in other countries that have it love what they have. You do not see politicians in their countries running on a platform to install a United States health system in their country. It might be easier to ...

Oust Trump

Donald Trump keeps his federal tax returns secret because he doesn’t pay federal taxes. Donald Trump’s business finances are funded by Russian oligarchs who are closely connected to Putin. Donald Trump is running trillion-dollar annual budget deficits to benefit his billionaire friends. ...

Twisting of facts

Whew, just saw my neighbor to talk to a bit, as she passed, on her way home from work, my dogs and me on our road. She, too, is distressed by the Republicans’ twisting of facts, hoping to stay in Trump’s good graces. (Could be the only good thing about Donald John Trump is that he pays ...

Free! Free? Free*

Free, free, free, lots of free stuff being floated around by presidential candidates. Nothing is free. Nothing, someone always must pay. So, let’s look at a Free! education. Does that mean that the professors, faculty and staff, will work and educate for nothing? I don’t think so, although ...

A thoughtful alternative paradigm

My, how things can change on a dime. Trump’s assassination of Qasem Soleimani may just be what gets us into a war with Iran, not to mention a renewed and expanded war in Iraq against perhaps some of the very same Iraqi troops we’ve trained and equipped. Yet another costly war in the Middle ...

Support HB687

Nearly two thirds of gun deaths in the U.S. are suicides (CDC data), and our tiny state is not immune to this epidemic. It may be a surprise to your readers to learn that one New Hampshire resident dies by suicide by gun every four days. In New Hampshire, 90% of all gun deaths are suicides. ...

A heartfelt thank-you

“It’s a Wonderful Life” here in Wilton – a perfect example of life imitating art. On Dec. 22, people streamed into the Town Hall Theatre carrying food items for the Open Cupboard Pantry, the only admission charge. The pantry is a food source for those families in need who reside in ...

Real and urgent concerns

I am not a huge Elizabeth Warren supporter, but I was disgusted by the front-page editorial disguised as a news article entitled “Dem candidates pushing ‘green jobs’ agendas: Warren wants to spend $1 million per job.” This article takes the total price tag for Warren’s Green New Deal ...

Bernie is a sure loser

There are several Democratic presidential candidates who support Medicare for All who also happen to be viable general election candidates (unlike Bernie Sanders, who has no realistic chance of being elected president). If you actually want to see Medicare for All implemented, vote for ...

Hope the Dems win

Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign strategy is to get uneducated rural white nationalist (so-called) religious bigots to vote for him, and also have his billionaire friends put big dollars into his coffers so he can give them more federal tax breaks while we will continue to have years of trillion ...

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 ...
