Courts will decide intention of deed

March 6 - To the Editor:

Regarding Article 12 on the Rye Town Hall (purchase of TD Bank property). Mr. Donavan and Mae Bradshaw are lawyers. As attorneys they are limited to voicing opinions.

The courts alone have the sole authority to make rulings.

They will not have the last word.

The issue is uncontrolled dogs, not leashes

March 4 - To the Editor:

Re: Unleashed dogs harass wildlife

It is not unleashed dogs that menace wildlife: it is uncontrolled dogs.

You ran a story about David Tilton's problems with uncontrolled dogs on his property, and the article seemed to say that the problem is with the current leash laws. That makes no sense.

Currently, the law is that dogs must be under the control of their owners, in most places with or without a leash. Obviously, the dogs running rampant on Tilton's property are not being controlled by their owners. How would punishing law abiding dog owners with stricter leash laws change Tilton's problem aside from making life more difficult for innocent dog owners?

It appears that Mr. Tilton already gave up on a pretty good solution: his baited coyote traps. When dogs were caught, why could he not have called an animal control officer to retrieve the dogs and fine their negligent owners?

These articles encourage the hotheads who have been going around shooting our dogs. Take the guns away from people who use them to menace people or dogs!

To suggest punishing the public at large for the negligence of a few is wrong.

Rye Voters: Say NO to Article 9

March 5 - To the Editor:

When I first moved to New England 16 years ago from Florida, I heard the phrase that embodies Yankee frugality - "use it up, wear it out, make do or do without".

After living in rural Vermont and now in Rye, I fully understand why this is part of the character here; a practical belief that "new" is NOT necessarily being better when you can find a reasonable and economical solution.

Article 9 flies in the face of this Yankee frugality. A $3 million new office building is costly and excessive, denigrating the rich heritage of a coastal rural town. We have the option to repurpose an empty bank building (Article 9) and restore Town Hall, which has had a new roof and new HVAC in the last few years, with funds allocated already to repaint the exterior.

In a recent letter, John Loftus states many incorrect facts. For example, the building is not hazardous or toxic,; nor does it show mold, otherwise no one would be able to work or meet in it. It has the same issues as any older home, in which many Rye residents live and have the same conditions. Loftus, like the shrewd and opportunistic tailor in Hans Christian Andersen's "Emperor's New Clothes" would like us to believe that the historic Town Hall is something other than what it is for the furthering of his agenda.

I understand the frustration of many who see this issue as an endless circle of proposals with no resolution. But there is an opportunity now to create the best and most economical outcome for the town, which is not an expensive office building. To Article 9 , I say "do without". VOTE "YES" FOR ARTICLE 12

I'm voting against the tear down and rebuild of town hall

March 5 - To the Editor:

Last year at this time, Rye was in an uproar with competing arguments over what to do with its town hall. There had been an earlier effort to renovate and expand (to the tune of $3 million or more). Some wanted to tear it down, promising a much more reasonable and less expensive option if we waited another year. Others wanted to repair what was there to keep it operational and structurally sound until the town could resolve what it wanted to do. Upshot? Nothing passed.

Now, a year later, we are back at it again, with townsfolk at odds over what to do. On the table is not a less expensive alternative but a $3-plus million dollar tear down and rebuild. Question: why would we want to pay over $3 million now for a new structure when we wouldn't pay $3 million to upgrade and expand? The possible issues that have been put forth by some about mold and such have no basis in fact.

Also, if we chose to spend this $3.2 million on a new building, we do not get a voice in how that is spent. We are voting on this design with no changes at all. If we actually wanted to tear down this historic building, why wouldn't we go through the traditional process of multiple designs so we can have a voice in what we are buying? And, what if there need to be changes because of bids that might come in over the money we budgeted? Does it get scaled back without input? Does it all stop in its tracks?

The "destroy and build" group is very active and vocal. It is feeling in town like this is the one and only option. I do not agree. I, for one, do not believe that "new" is always better. Yes, renovation is tricky, but new (as we have seen in the construction and wear of our "new" fire station) is not always the best (or the less expensive) option either. In addition, money has already been raised from outside sources to paint the town hall and repair some of the issues at hand.

For these reasons I will definitely be voting "no" on 9, the tear down and rebuild of a $3.2 million new town hall.

Something for Portsmouth car buyers to think about

March 5 - To the Editor:

So you buy a new Japanese car with great gas mileage. The profits go to the owner of the dealership, The owner hires an aggressive lawyer. The aggressive lawyer sues the city for $3, $10 or more millions of dollars over a land dispute. The lawyer wins the case (maybe) and the city has to pay the owner of the car dealership millions and the tax payers of Portsmouth have to pay the city for these uninsured awards in the form of higher real estate taxes. Makes you think about where you buy your cars, doesn't it?

Vote no on bills aiming to suppress young voters

March 5 - To the Editor:

As our state ages out and loses our young adult population to other locations, we are sending the wrong message in HB 1543 and HB 372. Both bills look to restrict college students from voting in New Hampshire. Not only do these bills fly in the face of inclusion in our core democratic process, it gives the message that this population is not welcome here.

Rather than proclaim vote, play and stay here, these legislative statements tell our potential Granite Staters to go away, don't bother us and take their talents elsewhere. Is this the message we want to be sending? Please urge your State Representatives to vote "no" on these bills.

TD Bank is a game changer

March 6 - To the Editor:

As the nature of the proposed projects under articles 9 and 12 on the Rye Town Warrant become more clarified by public presentations, community meetings, and press, we are hearing that it is time to bite the bullet and vote $3.1 million plus for a new building (a number that has not and cannot be clearly determined, as even the supporters of the article have admitted) and move on.

There are, however, many benefits to the Town in the recently available TD Bank purchase opportunity. The nature and cost of the project are clearly established without any uncertainty; $862,000 complete for turnkey occupancy. No 10-year tax burden for the bond issue. No dislocation of the town employees for at least eight months. No search for alternative work spaces elsewhere in town or in temporary trailers with questionable handicap access. No uncertainties of excavation and site work. No questions about what subcontractors might charge. No speculation about what competitive bidding might result in for overall price. No uncertainty about the start date and when the project might be complete. Virtually no disruption in Town business. And there will be no need to address other issues in the Town Hall building at the present time.

While I think it is important that we honor our heritage, this appears to be a clear matter of dollars and cents. $842,000 vs. $3.4 million plus including the bond cost. Please be sure to vote on March 13, and vote yes on Article 12 and no on Article 9.

Rye needs a new Town Hall

March 6 - To the Editor:

It is finally time for the citizens of Rye to make the correct decision regarding their Town Hall. The Town has spent years and $300,000 of taxpayers' money doing studies to determine how to "fix" the old Town Hall building. The prior proposals have been voted down each election day, because the voters knew that these proposed plans were not feasible, too expensive, and didn't solve the problem.

There are some who feel strongly that the old Town Hall must be preserved, but this is neither prudent nor financially justified. At best, the "fix" would be good for a few years - only to pose a bigger problem down the road.

Similarly, the "new" proposal to have the Town purchase the old TD Bank building and use it for a portion of the Town offices is also a poor choice and throws good money after bad.

The only logical answer is to build a new Town Hall. The Town owes a debt of gratitude to John Loftus for his insightful plans and design for a new building which will fill the Town's needs while maintaining a reasonable budget.

The final product will be a new Town Hall which will be the pride of our Town. I urge all Rye voters to get the facts and to vote YES for Article 9 (new Town Hall) and NO for Article 12 (TD Bank) on March 13.
