Letter: An imperial court
06-12-2024 4:29 PM

Americans deserve a Supreme Court we can trust to act fairly in the country’s best interests. We hope the justices will act wisely but at a minimum, they owe it to us to be impartial and to appear to be impartial, to be open-minded about information...


Letter: A step backwards
06-12-2024 4:29 PM

Well Monday night’s select board meeting resulted in the board voting to suspend enforcement of the use of green bags. Seems they have decided it is not worth the hassle of trying to make the program work through monitoring and enforcement. To me that...


Letter: Franklin stands ready to help
06-11-2024 3:59 PM

I must admit that I am angered by the article “Taken for taxes, waiting to die” by Michaela Towfighi that clearly smacks of sensational journalism and implies that the state’s smallest city forced a homeowner out of his home, not true, and that no...


Letter: Middle school additional questions
06-11-2024 3:59 PM

We now have an updated cost estimate for the proposed new middle school project as presented to the school board on June 6. The upper limit estimate is about $10M less than the previous $176M. But based on the last report (Monitor, 6/8) there are...


Letter: Local towns increase unity with flags
06-11-2024 3:59 PM

In Henniker, Hillsboro and Bradford, American flags are put up for five national holiday weekends as the major fundraiser for the Henniker Area Rotary Club. When we first started this program four years ago, I was fearful it would be supported by...


Letter: Styrene blues
06-11-2024 3:59 PM

This is a euphoric time of the year for home gardening, everywhere you look is a sea of green, as early vegetables are already being harvested and flowers are in full bloom. Trips to the gardening store are like a childhood candy store fantasy. There...


Letter: Words you don’t hear
06-11-2024 3:59 PM

Ever since the guilty verdict in New York, supporters of the ex president, including many currently in office, have been vociferous in their defense of him. Politicized justice system, rigged case, corrupt judge are all shouted over and over. The one...


Letter: Just noise
06-10-2024 3:31 PM

Democracies are inherently noisy and ours is more so in the wake of Donald Trump’s conviction and Sam Alito’s flags. One can make a reasonable argument over whether the seriousness of the charges against Trump rose to the level of a criminal trial....


Letter: City’s snow devices deemed ironic amid climate crisis, economic strain
06-10-2024 3:31 PM

I am writing to express my delight over the brilliant decision to purchase a snowmaking machine and snow-melting apparatus in our city. This is a stroke of genius, especially during a climate crisis and when taxpayers are practically swimming in spare...


Letter: Urge Sununu to veto harmful LGBTQ bills
06-10-2024 3:31 PM

Gov. Sununu will have four bills that could harm our LGBTQ+ friends and family on his desk soon. The unprecedented magnitude of anti-LGBTQ+ bills this session has been nothing short of appalling. These bills target the education and quality of life of...


Letter: Faux outrage
06-10-2024 10:31 AM

In Mark Zaccaria’s letter (Monitor, 6/2) “Will outrage scare us straight?” he writes about the weaponization of the courts in prosecuting Trump. Beyond the many (false) claims that the courts have been weaponized by the Biden administration, where is...


Letter: Trump’s two truths
06-10-2024 10:31 AM

After Donald Trump’s 34 guilty verdicts, Vivek Ramaswamy cried out on his behalf, “This is not the United States of America!” Oh, but it is. A rich, powerful man gets a dozen chances to amend his threatening and disruptive behavior before being held...


Letter: Do you know how the courts work?
06-10-2024 10:31 AM

I’m amazed that we keep hearing how the DOJ and president Biden have weaponized the courts against former president Trump. I suspect most of the “noise” is being generated by foreign actors trying to influence our form of government and stir up...


Letter: Prevent tragedy at Friendly’s
06-06-2024 3:58 PM

A jungle is rapidly growing at the former Friendly’s parking lot on Main Street. The abandoned building hosted squatters, burned down, and a person overdosed in the parking lot. Let’s prevent further tragedy. The former Irving station nearby installed...


Letter: A number of exemptions
06-06-2024 3:58 PM

I’ve been reading about the tax increases the city is imposing on residents of Penacook and Concord and the discussion of exemptions came up but there seems to be some comments that all there is is just a $300 exemption for anyone 65 and over. There...


Letter: We can change the way we pay for schools
06-05-2024 3:42 PM

Two weeks ago the Monitor ran a My Turn by Rep. Dianne Schuett describing the near impossible challenge of the Pembroke School District to drastically reduce expenses. Pembroke may be this year’s “poster child” for the consequences of relying on...


Letter: Good bye, Norris House
06-05-2024 3:42 PM

My first job in Concord was in 1976 in a small room on the third floor of the Norris House on Main Street, now demolished. A year later I became executive director of the NH Social Welfare Council and moved downstairs to the main front office on the...


Letter: Protect NH’s families and bees
06-05-2024 3:42 PM

Tell Gov. Sununu to veto HB 1698-FN and its amendment, thus protecting NH families, pollinators, and biodiversity from drones spraying pesticides. The amendment would allow pesticides to be sprayed from an elevation of 20 feet. This bill violates a...


Letter: $300 for tax relief?
06-05-2024 9:42 AM

I was stunned to read that the elderly tax exemption in Concord is $300, having been raised from $200 not so long ago. Are you serious? Against a tax bill of $6-8,000 for a lot of elderly folks, myself included, $300 is not much help. For many of us,...


Letter: Response to Robert Azzi
06-05-2024 9:42 AM

I am a fan of Robert Azzi’s essays. If I agreed with everything he wrote as a knee-jerk matter of course, I’d have little need to read his essays. His June 1 column struck me as if not overtly so, then at least edging toward calling “whites” as a...
