BESOpenHouse-CI-090115

With the school year set to begin and the “Insider” just getting to know the ins and outs of Bow, we decided it might be a good idea to check out the school we’d most likely fit into, Bow Elementary School. What? We may write at a professionalish level, but our math and science skills are hovering around a second- to third-grade level. So with less than a week before the start of another school year, BES held an open house for parents...

WinantMemorial-CI-082515

On Aug. 14, people who looked pretty important gathered in front of the N.H. State Library for the unveiling of a sign at the site of the future John Gilbert Winant Memorial, Winant was a decorated pilot during WWI, elected to the N.H. House and Senate, and served three terms as governor.

We hope you’re sitting down for this. Standing can get pretty tiring, that’s all. Anyway, the Insider’s fearless leader is leaving (note: fearlessness approximate). That’s right, Keith accepted a job with the UNH School of Law, and this issue is his last hurrah after almost two years as editor, and almost four years with the newspaper. He’s had some adventures, as evidenced by the photos on this page showing him as a zombie (photo...
