We've got some good police officers

Oh, Tom Aspell, you've outdone yourself again. This week's memo from the city manager is a whopping four pages of municipal goodness. We've included some the highlights, of course: We've got some good police officers Concord Police Officer Nicole Murray received a certificate of appreciation earlier this month for her efforts to keep traffic under control near city schools.

Road race to honor Concord teacher; new vegan restaurant; haunted house

Road race in memory of beloved teacher The Concord community lost a great teacher and friend this year when Sue Ann Martin tragically died unexpectedly.

Education was Sue Ann's love, and Broken Ground School was where she shared this love with her students and fellow teachers.

From the fifth-grade correspondents who brought you the Great Splashdown of 2010 . . . .

Sophia and Ella infiltrate the Concord Crew team!

We both hitched a ride on a launch – a boat for you landlubbers – with Charmie Curran, the Concord Crew coach for the novice girls. We watched the novice girls practice their boating skills (maybe they plan on being Vikings). Here is a glossary of six terms Concord crew mates use that you probably didn’t know about. Surf: A move in which rowers stand up and, well . . . SURF! Way…

With our hands

Stepping back in time with the Bristol Watchmaker

It's a mad, mad, lightning-paced, satellite-synchronized world we've created for ourselves. Productivity and multitasking are the highest of virtues, and time - always of the essence, yet always running out - has become our greatest obsession. We live in such constant fear of missed deadlines and ill-spent hours that we surround ourselves with clocks: on the computer, in the car, and…
