So many Americans are benefiting from many of the provision of the ACA. Republicans must come upRead More with an alternative that preserves these benefits while correcting the problems. Simply demanding repeal (over 50 times in the House so far) is idiotic, and emphasizes the lack of empathy that is part of the Republican agenda.

Pati beardsley April 20, 2014 at 11:46 pm
Her rights were violated. If "I" have to look at all the jesus propaganda, then I shouldRead More be able to voice my right to free speech. While I would never choose such a plate for fear that my car would get vandalized, I totally support this woman's right to request it.

Definitely will add these to my long, long list of "to reads". Maybe I'll live longRead More enough to get to them all. Just finished an oldie but goodie ... but you know? The stories only stay with me for a while, I read so much that I forget what I've already read and after the first few pages, I get into it again and often continue since I liked it the first time around. There will never be enough hours in any day to read all I want to and thank goodness and God for Goodreads and, of course, my library and you, Danielle, for adding to my lists. Was offered a Kindle but know what? I really prefer to hold that book in my lap to read, plus I prefer to use my library ... it's FREE, for goodness sake, why would I pay to read anything but a newspaper? And, even that can be gotten at the library. If nothing else, I just love the smell of a library! (Sorry for my longwinded-ness ... just love, love books.)
Mamie Huggins April 20, 2014 at 08:37 am
Hey Anna - I'm a book lover too and use the library on occasion. But it's not FREE as you say, it'sRead More paid for by us taxpayers. Also, when I buy a book, especially by an unknown and/or local author, I'm helping that person to keep writing.
Anna Bucciarelli April 20, 2014 at 05:48 pm
Of course you're right Mamie but if I don't have to part with an additional penny from my pocket IRead More feel it's a treat. And you're right too about keeping authors writing I especially like books by new, first-time novelists who often surprise me with the wonder of their words.

What nonsense. New Hampshire winters have cooled for the last 20 years according to data from NOAARead More NCDC. This March was the second coldest March sine 1895 in NH and ME and coldest ever in buried in snow VT. Our snows have increased with 14 major impact east coast snows this decade just 4 years in beating out the snowy 1960s which had 11. Globally temperatures have not warmed for going on 18 years. It is just a scheme to wrestle more control and tax business (which i the end costs all of us) and gain revenue for the state, federal government. We came within two days of running out of backup oil this winter which would have forced us into rolling brownouts. Energy costs have skyrocketed. We don't need a DES. We need a sane administration in Concord and Washington who really care about the low and middle class who are affected most by their policies not ideologues celebrating Earth Day. How about celebrating people day. As a climatologist who has studied, taught and used climate in business, I can tell you we have started down a path towards serious cooling worse than the 1960s and 1970s. All the plans the DES have for us will kill our state's economy. We are all for a clean environment. But we can do it without you Burack and Barack within our communities.

Pollution is a problem that is very real, but this climate change stuff sounds like a lot of hokeyRead More BS to me. It appears designed to allow money to flow to those in power and those who now have built careers studying this phantom issue.

Real Justice would be an asteroid falling on Queen Rath and incinerating her but who would wish suchRead More an awful fate on a defenseless asteroid. Hopefully your story will shine a bright light on the underhanded and slimy dealings involving the district and Rath and in the end we will all be rewarded with the hasty departure off Chis Rath.
Truth & Justice April 20, 2014 at 09:26 am
Just a thought Barb. When the district attorneys asked what it would take to sweep this under theRead More rug I hope you replied your restoration as a teacher in Concord with all your tenure, a financial settlement and the resignation of Cris Rath. Only seems fair.
Alicia Pacelli April 20, 2014 at 12:19 pm
Dear Barb, Thank you so much for your honesty, and for being courageous enough to share your storyRead More with the community. We all know that none of us is perfect, but we all deserve to have our voice heard. As my cross-country coach for four years, and as my Health teacher, you changed my life in so many ways, and are part of the reason why I am the strong, confident, and outspoken woman that I am today. You taught me how to have a sense of humor about everything in life, and to speak the truth without sugar-coating. You instilled in me the values of expressing myself, loving myself, and pushing my limits. Before I met you I had never run more than a mile in my life, and am now proud to say that I have been a runner for 11 years and don’t plan on stopping. I admire your strength, resilience, spirit and passion, and I know that I am just one of the many runners and students who stand behind you today. Thank you for being the most incredible coach that I have ever had, and will ever have! Keep fighting. Alicia Pacelli

I'm not against paying a little more, I just pay a toll every day going and coming to work andRead More Merrimack is surrounded unlike any other town. Like jpf2361 said, if its dedicated to fixing roads, especially bridges, it would be worth it. Are they spending that money elsewhere???? We all sound disappointed in the state government.....
Exeter Resident April 20, 2014 at 06:26 pm
Ray thinks that without government taxation and "investing" (i.e., spending on thingsRead More consumers are not willing to pay for voluntarily), the earth will spin off its axis, and we will all be in eating worms in the mud. Many decent people opposed abolishing slavery because they could not answer "Who will pick the cotton otherwise?" Government command of the economy is so entrenched into people's minds that they cannot fathom a life where trade and production is voluntary instead of coerced. A real shame.
Michael Todd April 20, 2014 at 09:18 pm

Ok........lots of happy people here. When my children were young we hid eggs in the yard for theirRead More hunt. One dog used to collect them before we went outside and put them on his bed, smelling the candy inside. Kids learned to trade dog treats to get their eggs back. A different kind of egg hunt- and I miss that dog.

hey hey hey -Didn't you get the message -dogs have rights too, the Supreme Crt should be rulingRead More on his soon. We need Al Gore to make us a documentary about the new meaning of puppy love then he can sell us dog food instead of energy credits.

This is a really tragic story. It scares me. I work with several young people who put video gamesRead More ahead of their kids. They get the big earned income tax credit checks, buy game consoles, big screen tvs, games up the ying yang. Their kids get yard sale flip flops, wear torn under sized clothes. They give their kids cough syrup to put them to sleep and stay up playing games. I pray no of them would ever do this.
