It’s about the LGBTQ+ group that wants to plant the “Pride” tree. The LGBTQ+ group, led by former Selectboard member Amanda Jordan Smith, deserved better. “Not all Windsor residents are on board with this,” said Howard, a 2003 Windsor High School graduate. It was about Howard’s and Woodman’s lack of tolerance for the LGBTQ+ community. The LGBTQ+ community wasn’t looking for a “big ceremony or proclamation,” Jordan Smith said.3 months ago Valley News
When I speak with people on the campaign trail, one of the most frequent concerns I hear about is public education funding. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, New Hampshire is last in the nation in funding that a state contributes towards public education. Because assessed valuation varies from community to community, funding public education becomes a much heavier burden for municipalities that are property poor. Rather than resolving the issue of properly funding public education, the state has side-stepped it by introducing Education Freedom Accounts (EFA). However, we need state elected officials who are committed to resolving public education funding before introducing alternatives such as EFAs.3 months ago Valley News
Who knows, maybe next year the girls might have a Friday night game under the lights? Teaching is an honorable profession and public education should be accessible and equal in resources to all our youth, regardless of Zip code. It’s clear to me that Upper Valley Democrats are on the side of children, families, and teachers when it comes to supporting public education, not dismantling it. Public education is on the ballot. Please vote Nov. 8 and remember a vote for Sue Prentiss is a strong voice for public education, and for New Hampshire.3 months ago Valley News

In short [fuck my life],” Roth apparently wrote in an internal message, Taibbi reported. The meeting happened about 15 minutes after the aforementioned Hacked Materials implosion; the government declined to share anything useful when asked.”Roth’s weekly meetings with government officials may have involved separate meetings, with not all agencies present, Taibbi reported. Taibbi did not indicate whether or not the company took action on this particular tweet. “Examining the entire election enforcement Slack, we didn’t see one reference to moderation requests from the Trump campaign, the Trump White House, or Republicans generally,” Taibbi tweeted.1 month ago Valley News
An electric vehicle charger is plugged into a vehicle at an Energy Absolute Anywhere charging station in Bangkok, Thailand, on June 5, 2019. The rule, called Advanced Clean Cars II, is part of a set of regulations that are designed to lower emissions in cars and trucks. Advanced Clean Cars regulates manufacturers, not people. Groups such as the Vermont Sierra Club, Conservation Law Foundation, Vermont Natural Resources Council, Vermont Public Interest Research Group and Vermont Conservation Voters support them. Car manufacturers who make electric vehicles will be incentivized to make more affordable electric vehicles, he said, including by selling previously leased vehicles at lower prices.2 months ago Valley News
Erling Heistad helped his father - also Erling Heistad, Lebanon High School ski coach and founder of the Lebanon Outing Club - to build the jump in 1947. “I was here at its beginning, and I am here at its end,” reflected Erling H. Heistad, who as a 7-year-old boy helped his father, the late famed Lebanon ski coach and ski jump designer Erling Heistad, build the 25-meter ski jump during the summer of 1947. The ski jump “lost some of its structural support over the summer, so we are forced to take it take it down. Where the razed old ski jump stood, a new one will go up, according to Grant. Key Corp. owner Andy Key brought his excavator to Storrs Hill, has been volunteering crews and equipment and has been moving around earth on the hill to build a new 15-meter beginner-level ski jump.3 months ago Valley News
Solve New Hampshire’s school funding issuesThe largest taxes people pay in New Hampshire is by far property taxes and they vary from town to town. Yet when it comes to funding our local public schools, we struggle to raise the needed tax revenues to fund the yearly budget. Please support the following candidates to finally solve the decades of school funding unfairness once and for all. Slashing the local school budget is not the solution to the tax burden. The solution lies in electing the right people to the state Legislature — who will act to provide fair funding to all public school districts.3 months ago Valley News
