The problem with dirty dishes

Dear Bill and Casper, My boyfriend and I have been living together for about six months. Everything is going swell, except for one minor detail: He never does the dishes. Washing dishes is my least favorite chore, but I feel disgusting when I see them pile up in the sink. Granted, he does most of the cooking, but I help with a lot of other chores.

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. The Greater Concord Safe Community Coalition honored Murray at its annual police appreciation breakfast on Sept. 21. During the 2009-10 school year, Murray completed 60 school-zone patrols, the most of any officer in the department. Way…

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. Sue Ann touched many people in this community, from her Broken Ground students and their families, her coworkers, her neighbors and church friends to her friends in the running community. Education was Sue Ann's love, and Broken Ground School was where she shared this love with her students and fellow teachers. We want to continue her love and support of education and of Concord's youth. The Sue Ann Martin Fun Run will support a scholarship fund…
