Can we coexist with Asia’s communists?

Wednesday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met for seven hours at Hickam Air Force Base in Hawaii with the chief architect of China's foreign policy, Yang Jiechi. The two had much to talk about. As The Washington Post reports, the "bitterly contentious relationship" between our two ...

Crimes against common sense

What the hell is going on in this country? When did we, the majority, stop speaking up for ourselves? Crimes against common sense seem to happen every week, yet most of us stay silent. Or is it that the media only highlights those who scream the loudest, leaving the impression that what they ...

Success breeds failure

Success breeds failure. That's a lesson taught by America's current woes, the stumbling attempts to cope with the novel coronavirus, and the all-too-familiar scripts for responding to police misconduct and violent riots. What worked once upon a time no longer proves functional; policies that ...

George Floyd changed my mind

For many years, I was skeptical about accusations of racism in the criminal justice system. Yes, I knew that blacks comprised only about 12% of the population yet represented 33% of the prison population. But those data alone did not prove that police are racists or that courts are tougher on ...

The wheels are coming off the Trump chariot

WASHINGTON -- Less than five months until the 2020 presidential election, an epidemic of major political blows from various quarters has thrown Donald Trump into panic mode. One surprising setback came from the Supreme Court he thought he had put in his pocket with his appointments. With ...

Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down

Editor’s note: During the course of a week, issues are covered that might not lend themselves to full editorial comment, but they are worthy of The Sunday Telegraph weighing in – thumbs up, thumbs down or neutral. ––– THUMBS UP to the River Casino and several other local ...

Saying goodbye to a good friend

A friend is somebody who supports you when you want to get something done. A friend is somebody who lends a shoulder when you are in pain. A friend is somebody who celebrates your accomplishments with you without taking the credit for themselves. And a friend is somebody who gives you honest ...

Remember the fallen

Sunday marks the one-year anniversary of the terrible motorcycle crash that took the lives of seven people in Randolph, New Hampshire. The seven were members of the Jarheads Motorcycle Club, a New England group that includes Marines and their spouses. The victims were from New Hampshire, ...

Nov. 3 can’t come soon enough

The November 3 general election can’t come soon enough for us to rescue our country and our state. At the national level, the general ineptitude of the current president is appalling. Loss of more than 100 thousand lives, with more to follow, unfortunately, due to the administration’s ...

Support Chris Connelly for sheriff

Chris Connelly is the right person to serve as the next Hillsborough County Sheriff. As a career law enforcement officer, Chris will not need on the job training. He is loyal, hard working, trustworthy and well respected. We are proud to endorse Chris Connelly for Hillsborough County Sheriff. ...

Understanding racism’s roots

I’ve just written to the few people I know reading or having copies (that I gave them) of Maine author Carolyn Chute’s just-out novel, The Recipe for Revolution (Grove Press). The paper jacket has this Kirkus Review recommendation: “Essential Reading.” I agree. It’s a big book, 732 ...

PBS must be fair to conservatives

The Public Broadcast System is supposed to be just that, public. Half of us in America are Conservatives, but most PBS broadcasts give only the progressive’s viewpoints. Media broadcasts are often editorial opinions disguised as news-- as they decline to discuss many of the pertinent facts ...

Omnibus bill for heroes, not Holocaust

An Omnibus bill SB 727 (HB 1135) is rightfully called the Heroes Bill. It honors Mark DeCoteau who died in Afghanistan and police officer Steve Arkell who died trying to moderate a domestic dispute. The Senate bill is scheduled for Tuesday, June 16, after which it will return to the House as HB ...

N.H. needs paid leave

New Hampshire families need paid family and medical leave. When working people in New Hampshire need to take time off because of a serious medical issue or to take care of a child, spouse, or parent’s serious medical issue, this is more often than not experienced as lost income and even lost ...

Absentee voting

I am grateful for the hard work and dedication of the Select Committee on 2020 Emergency Election Support. The Committee’s Final Report is the product of many hours of listening to the concerns of Granite Staters, including election officials. Secretary Gardner’s cover memo publishing the ...

What is it really?

Hillwood is proposing a “Logistics Center” for south Hudson. Sounds nice, but what is it really? It is 3 massive buildings with 2.7 million square feet of space operating 24/7. Picture three Pheasant Lane Malls placed close together! There would be approximately 350 truck loading docks, 800 ...

Hey police, we can do better!

I like everyone else in the country watched in utter disbelief of the abhorrent killing of George Floyd at the hands of then Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin that fateful day in May. George Floyd’s unnecessary death went against everything that I, and all the police officers I know ...
