‘Operation Kindness’

Last week, my husband and I, as well as the other neighbors on our street, were treated to four nights of sweet treats as well as inspirational messages. A family of four children on General Amherst Road initiated and carried out a program they called “Operation Kindness,” which was to ...

SHARE gives thanks

Last week, SHARE Outreach prepared Christmas for 462 children and another 185 households with adults. We were a little exhausted, but exhilarated, knowing that these families have gifts and food to celebrate the holiday. And believe me, they are very grateful. We could not have done it ...

Insane

For Trump to say he’ll “shut down the government” if his wall doesn’t get funding is insane; not to mention blackmail in the highest degree. To then suggest there would be “a revolt” if he didn’t get his way, constitutes inciting a riot! Why would the president of our country do ...

Holiday cheer

This week we had the pleasure of attending the Nashua South and Elm St. holiday concerts. Our two granddaughters play trumpet (and French horn) at each school, and it was a wonderful experience listening to them and the other students displaying what they have been practicing for months. ...

Advocate

For most girls, their 16th birthday is expected to be a day full of joy. For Alexis McKinney, however, an ambitious teen who was looking toward adulthood, her sweet 16 was spent being mourned at her own funeral. On July 11, 2016, a party thrown for fun memories resulted in Alexis’s death ...

Crimes against humanity

On Sunday, Nov. 25, I viewed online images and read news stories of U.S. Border Agents use of tear gas to envelop immigrant women and children, who were screaming and coughing in pain. Over the past year, I heard of stories of young immigrant children being taken out of their mother’s arms ...

Support Gardner, save primary

To the voters of Greater Nashua: The Democrats have taken over the Legislature. I get that. The voters of New Hampshire have spoken. But did anyone expect that the Democrat-controlled Legislature’s FIRST official action will be to endanger New Hampshire’s first in the nation primary by ...

Inappropriate vote

At the last Bedford School Board meeting, members were pressured to vote whether to allow private developers access to the high school’s sewer and water lines for their proposed apartment project. The developers apparently felt that if they had a confirmed source of tie-in, it would ...

Local families make impact

This month, sites in the Milford area will be among 5,000 U.S. drop-off locations collecting shoebox gifts for children overseas during Operation Christmas Child’s National Collection Week, Nov. 12-19. Milford families, churches and groups are busy transforming empty shoeboxes into fun ...

Thank you

My thanks go out to all the people of Mont Vernon who participated in any way in the recent election of New Hampshire State Representatives. My successful campaign could not have been possible without your help, not only by going to the polls, but by helping Donna, Kat and me out be canvassing ...

Ongoing support

I would like to thank voters for their on-going support in last week’s election. It has truly been my honor to serve as your State Senator over the past four years.

Gratitude

I would like to thank all my Amherst supporters and constituents for allowing me the experience and honor to serve you in our New Hampshire House for the past eight years. I cannot fully express to you the gratitude I feel for your encouragement, support, and belief that together we could ...

‘Yes, we’re elitists’

The New Hampshire Democratic Party did Republicans, and especially Donald Trump and his cheerleaders at Fox News, a huge favor when, in a perfect act of shooting itself in the foot, it chose as its guest speaker for its first Eleanor Roosevelt Dinner. ... Alec Baldwin. Congragulations on ...

Best representation

Will you vote on Nov. 6? Who gets your support, and why? I support Joelle Martin, Milford’s current House Representative. Here’s why: Joelle listens to us, her constituents, and responds promptly to our concerns. In Concord, she works collaboratively to develop cost-effective ...

Get educated and vote

With the Nov. 6 general election less than 30 days away, I’ve got a simple message for every potential voter: Get educated and go vote! This is a midterm election where typically only a third of voters participate. Why should 1/3 of voters dictate what happens to everyone else? Why ...

Chandley for Senate

In 2016, I decided to learn about local politics and become more engaged in New Hampshire’s political landscape. To that end, I reached out to my local representatives. In Amherst where I live, Shannon Chandley immediately responded to my queries, inviting me to Concord and advising me on ...

Not far enough

I read the letter to the editor headed “Disgusting and Vile Attack” and wonder at those who said they were glued to their TV during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings and testimony, yet missed the part where the FBI was instructed by the current resident of the White House not to follow-up with ...

A special sense of gratitude

On Sept. 22, a special event took place at Lamson Farm in Mont Vernon, NH. Julia Griffith, a long term resident of the area celebrated a very special birthday, with the help of the town, neighbors, friends and family. As Julia has brain cancer, the celebration that was made possible for her was ...

Bigotry

Your recent editorial “Hatred more common” failed to offer an answer to the question it raised: Why do more people today feel free to express their racial hatred? The answer is obvious, I believe, when one considers the continuous racist words and actions of the one person Americans are ...

Kind gesture

As a candidate for office, I was prohibited from handling ballots in the recent election, which is normally part of my duties as a Ward 3 Selectwoman. So, after the polls closed, one of my tasks was to record write-in candidates that were on the Republican ballot. My fellow selectwoman read the ...
