Letter: What happened to area near Turtle Pond
I have lived near the Turtle Pond wetlands area for over 20 years. In that time, I’ve seen beavers, deer, turtles, turkeys and even the occasional fox and bear. I’ve also seen a lot of powerlines. Although an eyesore, powerlines are part and parcel of energy delivery and I didn’t think much of it when I got a letter from Eversource saying they were going to prune back some trees. I never would have imaged what actually happened. Huge swaths of brush and natural vegetation have been razed to the ground. The people who did it claim they had all the rights and permissions, but I can’t but lament the loss of so much foliage so close to a natural wetland. It’s one thing to say you need a trim to keep the power lines clear, but this was shaving the place bald. I’m not a wildlife expert, but when you’ve seen so much wetland destroyed right before your eyes, you can’t help but feel for the animals that once lived there.

Letter: Net metering veto was the wrong decision | Concord Monitor
For over a century, the United States has subsidized the fossil fuel industry. Every year, billions of dollars in tax relief have gone into digging carbon out of the earth and throwing it into the atmosphere. In his self-proclaimed “tremendous” tax cut of 2018, President Donald Trump and his supporters in Congress provided the fossil fuel industry with an additional $25 billion in tax cuts. Was this done in the name of “we the people?” Did we the people even know about this?

Do you remember where you were and what you were doing in 2010? President Obama was serving his second year in office, and he signed the Affordable Care Act into law that year. Gov. John Lynch was finishing his third term in the State House, while Judd Gregg was on the verge of concluding his 18 years of service in the U.S. Senate. The Celtics lost the NBA finals to the hated Lakers, and Iron Man 2 was released – which has since been followed by 19 other Marvel Universe movies. Something else happened in 2010. Northern Pass was first introduced to New Hampshire.
