Our cost for 90-day Rx has gone up 1,000% while Hassan spends away

To The Daily Sun,

Thank you Governor Hassen,

As a retired state employee I was shocked to receive a letter from the state this past week. My cost for long-term (90 day) prescriptions has gone up 1,000 percent. You read that right, 1,000 percent. It seems the profligate spending by our governor is to be paid, at least in part, on the backs of retired employees. We often worked at substandard wages because of the benefits we received. I guess that is now much less true than in the past.

Our governor just can't stop spending our money, and when I called to complain about her outrageous spending I spoke to a condescending minion who, while overtly polite, could not keep his disdain out of his voice. He was just not interested in someone who wanted to rein in the free-spending activities of those we had elected.

So, thank you governor. My wife's prescriptions are many, and my costs will increase enormously. I just hope we can keep such as yourself from continuing in office.

I am thankful to have been born in this wonderful country of ours

To The Daily Sun,

Thanksgiving is the day to be thankful, and I am thankful.

I am thankful for my loving husband and for every day that we can be together.

I am thankful for my wonderful daughter, my equally wonderful son-in-law and his great family, and my amazing and beautiful granddaughter.

I am thankful to have been born in and am able to live in this wonderful country, and for my grandparents who had the wisdom to come to this nation. Thank you to America, land of trial and error in her history, but I like to think of as an eventual success in a great experiment in human dignity. Even in spite of the loud and clamorous voices on all sides of the political spectrum. And maybe because of those loud voices, because they prove we are a free land.

I am thankful for those who keep us safe.

I am thankful for the beauties of New Hampshire, for friendship, for being able to create music with good friends, and for so much that I can't think of at this time to list.

And last and not least, I am thankful for the wonderful team of nurses, caregivers, food service workers, and aides of all departments who work 24/7, holiday or regular day, at the Belknap County Nursing Home to give loving care to my husband.

I am thankful.

Thea Aloise
