Color doesn’t matter

Cabinet Letters

With all this rioting, looting, pillaging and punching (white women in the face for being white) taking place across the nation, I wish to offer my native city of Nashua a recommendation for self protection in future abuses of police and of any designated authorities duly placed for the ...

Remove officials if needed

Cabinet Letters

Help to restart the economy is needed

Cabinet Editorials

About 156.5 million Americans are categorized as members of the civilian labor force. At least 41 million people who can work and by definition want to are unemployed. In other words, approximately one of every four people able to work is not employed — and is being supported by the rest. ...

Trump only cares about re-election

Cabinet Letters

I grew up in the church. We lived two doors away, and my dad was a deacon. Sunday mornings, I sat between my parents in the pews. I sang in the choir and attended Scouting at the church. Among my keepsakes are pins denoting eight years of perfect attendance at Sunday school. I was president ...

Help solve climate change

Cabinet Letters

I am a high school junior and I’m writing a research paper about climate change in English class. In my research, I found a Chris Thomas study in Nature that says human-caused climate change already has committed 1/5 of all species on Earth to extinction. If we exceed 2 degrees Celsius of ...

Disrespect

Cabinet Letters

One of our current Executive Council members from Nashua, Deborah Pignatelli, thinks she is so special that she has somehow earned the right to change the words to the Pledge of Allegiance. Really – it happened at the recent New Hampshire Executive Council Memorial Day meeting when she ...

Come to your own conclusion

Cabinet Letters

Before Donald Trump, I believed that most people wouldn’t have accepted a sensitive FBI investigation beset with fundamental performance failures. Why has my belief changed after Trump? First, Hillary Clinton was not prosecuted for negligently handling highly classified information and ...

$2 to vote

Cabinet Letters

Sounds minimal, right? But the proposed $2 postage needed to return an absentee ballot is a FEE for voting – a poll tax. For the folks without jobs, recently evicted or otherwise struggling economically, it’s an insult. To postal service workers, it’s an influx when they’re ...

Find better ways

Cabinet Editorials

Many school districts and individual teachers have contingency plans for classes to be interrupted for a few days. We doubt more than a handful had strategies for the current situation, in which the last couple of months of school for millions of students was canceled. There is evidence many ...

Lessons learned

Cabinet Letters

There’s an essential part of the COVID-19 support system in New England and across the country that often goes unnoticed. It’s been fueling hospitals, drive through testing, outdoor testing sites; and providing heat, hot water and clean cooking energy to New Englanders during a cool spring ...

Warning signs ignored

Cabinet Letters

President Donald Trump just said the coronavirus was worse than the attacks on Pearl Harbor and the World Trade Towers. How stupid does he think the country is? More than 2,400 died when Pearl Harbor was attacked, and almost 3,000 at the World Trade Center. Six died at a nursing facility in ...

Quality leadership

Cabinet Letters

In “County nursing home boasts ‘well-coordinated team’” (The Sunday Telegraph, May 11), I read, “... a state mobile testing unit also came to the facility in an effort to test approximately 150 more staff members and residents.” Staff members. Testing. How novel. I live in the ...

Put project on hold

Cabinet Editorials

Long has the Nashua Performing Arts Center been a dream. Prior to the pandemic – and even recently – that dream has started to materialize, bit by bit. The $23-plus million project has the potential to transform downtown Nashua and make it a destination for all of New Hampshire and ...

Proposed project would be beneficial

Last week, officials announced plans for a logistics center in Hudson that could transform the local economy. The proposed center, which would be on the Green Meadow Golf Club property, would bring 2,500 direct and indirect jobs to the area and infuse millions of dollars into local and state ...

Trump should focus on issues

Cabinet Letters

I sure wish Donald J. Trump would consider something other than getting himself re-elected as an important part of being president of the UNITED States of America! For instance, he could promote and support: • The safety and security of ALL the American people. • The economic ...

Take a break from spending

Cabinet Letters

We need a break, a fiscal time-out, while we get our economy back to the growth level we were experiencing a few months ago. Also, we need to get our residents and businesses functioning with a normal and healthy life. We should put on hold hiring for non-essential government positions that ...
