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. Why, they’ve even taken to trashing each other while their top candidate trashes them and anyone else. Let’s play … 1

Letter: We need to speak out about pipeline

Wednesday, August 26, 2015

To the editor: I honestly can’t believe I am writing a letter to the editor. Usually when it comes to important issues, I tend to put my head in the sand and hope for the best.

Letter: Patience, bologna, a happy reunion

Wednesday, August 26, 2015

To the editor: Seven weeks ago a young, beautiful puppy came to our yard. We sat on our deck.

Letters: Things to think about

Tuesday, August 11, 2015

To the editor: Interesting article in Aug. 17 edition of Forbes magazine that all interested in the current pipeline issue should read. Titled “Nimby Nation,” it’s something everyone needs to think about. I hate the concept of eminent domain, always have; but I’m always open to new information … 0

Letters:

Tuesday, August 11, 2015

To the editor: Based upon the Select Board’s recent decision to prohibit dogs from Evans Flats, they demonstrated that they continue to kowtow to the Conservation Commission. The Commission had posted an illegal sign prohibiting dogs and, instead of reprimanding them for their high-handed action, the Select Board … 0

Letter: Water at risk of pipeline pollution

Monday, August 17, 2015

To the editor: My father loved coming to Mason from Nashua to visit, of course, and to take home a couple of gallons of our well water; the best he’d had ever had, he’d say. In early June I saw a spotted turtle crawling across the field that … 0

Letters: Limited leadership capability

Tuesday, August 11, 2015

To the editor: I am writing to inform the public that I have written practically all the declared presidential candidates asking that they express opposition to the Kinder Morgan proposed pipeline. I naively thought that some of these second-tier candidates like former New York Governor Pataki would seize … 0

Letters: Learn about Right-to-Know

Tuesday, August 11, 2015

To the editor: Chris Condon’s comments about the illegal meeting the Antrim Board of Selectmen held in Concord a few weeks ago point to his ignorance on these legal issues. When the Antrim Selectmen were taken to court — and lost — on the same issue a few … 0
