Stop the trashing; give us Hillary

Wednesday, August 26, 2015

To the editor: “Benghazi,” “emails,” “Benghazi,” “emails,” ... it’s a broken record with lyrics stuck in a groove. It’s the only record Republicans have got, the only lyrics they can think up. It’s no surprise that all Republicans can sing and play to the American public is some form of trashing.

Letter: Adding my opinion to the discussion

Tuesday, August 25, 2015

Letter: Eminent domain: How does it work?

Tuesday, August 25, 2015

To the editor: Monday, Aug. 10, marked the dubious pleasure of witnessing an appalling abuse of our legal system, one that will result in all Francestown citizens needing to reach deeper into their pockets to pay for the town’s legal bills. It is hard to believe that Francestown … 0

Keep funding for Planned Parenthood

Monday, August 17, 2015

Planned Parenthood is a vital and necessary service for the people of New Hampshire, and the all-male Executive Council’s decision to defund state contracts with the agency was a critical mistake based on unfounded speculation. Ever since the deceptively edited video by the disreputable “nonprofit” Center For Medical … 1
