Merrimack Letters

Vote Chandley

As a Merrimack resident for 28 years, I have seen a number of state senators represent Merrimack. I have never seen a State Senator that has worked across the aisle to get solutions passed like Senator Chandley has with the tolls. For over 30 years, Merrimack residents have been overburdened ...

New phase

Our state is entering a new phase dealing with the impact of the Coronacvirus as businesses reopen.  The economic hardships that so many people in NH are facing are overwhelming. People who provide services such as barbers, hairdressers, waiters and waitresses, and so many others too numerous ...

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 ...

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 ...

Thank you

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 ...

Elizabeth Warren has a plan to fix that

We all know that the opioid epidemic is an ongoing and heart-breaking problem. President Trump’s Council of Economic Advisers estimated that this crisis cost the nation more than $500 billion in 2015 alone with New Hampshire being disproportionately affected. Every day we lose people to ...

Our Thanks To

On Wednesday, April 17, Merrimack High School held their 3rd annual Vietnam Veterans’ Panel Discussion. Seven veterans were in attendance to share their experiences with all US History and American Experience classes. In order to show our appreciation to the veterans for their service to our ...

Southern New Hampshire’s PFAS

Southern New Hampshire’s PFAS water contamination situation is getting attention from the Presidential candidates and the national news. We’ve already had several candidates visit Merrimack to hold PFAS discussions with the communities. As more and more attention comes to southern New ...

Want to become a millionaire?

Want to become a millionaire? Just invent a fire alarm that will shut off when you yell, “Hey, I’m just cooking”. Another way would be to get Hannity (Fox News) and Rachel Maddow (MSNBC) to appear in a debate. It would set records for listeners. Advertisers would pay dearly for a spot ...

BSA Troop 401 Thanks All

On behalf of the members of BSA 401 & their families, we would like to extend a heart-felt thank you to the attendees of the auction and the following outstanding businesses, whose generosity made the 13th Annual Silent Auction and Dessert Buffet, on 4/7/18 a great success! Those ...

Vote for Lon Woods on Tues., April 9th

We have called Merrimack our home for the past forty-four years. During this time we have seen dozens of selectmen and town councilors, some good, and some forgettable. The best have been good listeners, logical thinkers, and have had an unabrasive style. Lon Woods will be on the Merrimack ...

We cannot allow history to repeat itself

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention there is a justifiable amount of evidence to keep the youth of America away form vaping products. These products contain the highly addictive substance nicotine, which has been shown to harm the developing brain. As a college ...

Vote ‘yes’ on Article 8

Article 8 on the April 9th Merrimack School District Warrant: returns control of grading practices to the individual classroom teacher; restores grade reporting equity to its previous norms; and, brings back confidence in our school district which then equates to maintaining higher property ...

Been a unique and joyful experience

Please consider becoming a host family for the Nashua Silver Knights. We became a host family in 2005, and have housed players from the Nashua Pride, the NH Fisher Cats, and now the Nashua Silver Knights. These are hard working young men chasing a dream. All they need is a little help along ...

Gun-Free School Zones Don’t Work

This letter is in response to the article entitled “Gun-Free School Zones” written by the members of the Oyster River Cooperative School Board. HB 564, an act allowing for “Safe School Zones”, will do nothing to ensure the safety of our children. 86% of public mass shootings took ...

Why is State Curtailing ATV Use and Tourism?

I am a New Hampshire resident and I am extremely troubled about several measures before the State Legislature that would essentially kill Off-Highway Recreational Vehicles (OHRV) (i.e., ATVs, UTVs) use and the associated tourism it brings to NH. Just as bad is the position the State has taken ...

If the EPA won’t protect us and our communities

The long-awaited EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) PFAS (per- and polyflouroalkyl substances) Action Plan released on February 14th outlined steps the agency will take to address PFAS contamination and to protect public health. The plan: · Provides both short-term solutions and ...

To “Disappointed”

I am writing to rebut some of the inaccurate claims laid forth by Rep. Jeanine Notter, and to call her out for the name-calling that passes for “dialogue” from some of today’s politicians. In her recent letter about NH state reps being forbidden from carrying firearms into the state house ...
