Socialism Versus Societal Awareness – There’s A Difference 

The fall election will not determine "Freedom" or "Socialism"

By Pecco Beaufays

In Louise Andrus’s Opinion piece, published in the June Beacon, she ends with the statement “I believe the election in the Fall will decide New Hampshire’s future, either Freedom or Socialism.” In my opinion, that’s a false choice. One ideology does not necessarily exclude the other. Perhaps she should explain her take on “socialism” as […]

By Ken Wells

As of June 10, the New Hampshire Legislature is back in session again, finally. Since the House of Representatives’ 19-hour marathon session back on March 12, the House has been unable to meet.

Agree Or Disagree, Chris Sununu is the Governor of New Hampshire

By Louise Andrus

I was very disappointed with an opinion article in The Andover Beacon last month on “How Do We Govern the State Without Holding Meetings? GOFERR is not in the best interests.” I have felt and continue to feel that during this COVID-19 period of time, with everything pertaining to this virus being new in nature […]

 Report From Concord

By Ken Wells

The customary title of this column, “Report from Concord”, seems peculiar to me now, since I’ve been unable to go to Concord for the past month. Just days after the all-night House session I described in the previous issue of the Beacon, the Governor locked down the State House and all the related government offices […]

The Local Area Has A Problem With Nighttime Littering

Exiting off Route 11 in Andover onto Route 4 toward Danbury, you can’t help but notice the accumulation of garbage deposited along this stretch of road. As locals perform area clean-ups, it’s only a matter of days before progress is reversed and fresh trash emerges. This route, popular and well-used between Andover, Wilmot, and Danbury […]

Friends, All of us, from the President of the United States to everyday citizens, have a job to do to combat the virus, COVID-19. We are not going to contain this overnight and it’s going to get worse before it gets better. But we’re all in this together. This virus doesn’t care who you love, […]

Report From Concord – March 15, 2020

By Ken Wells

The first two weeks of March provided ample reminders that while our state government is charged with important duties and responsibilities to the public, the “politicking” involved in getting the job done can be petty, cutthroat, and infuriating. During the current session, the House heard 951 House bills. Each bill gets an introduction and public […]

Report From Concord, December 2019

By Ken Wells, NH State Representative
Report From Concord, December 2019

We in the United States have reached a “now or never” moment in dealing with the pollution caused by the generation of electricity, our transportation system, and heating our buildings. The answer is not to do without the benefits of modern living, but to do it all differently. You may recall that at one point, […]
