Snow rules to follow

Aspell handed down some rules and regulations regarding snowy parking situations. Hmm, nothing about doing donuts . . . It is illegal to pile snow into a handicap accessible parking space or access aisle. Accessible parking spaces and access aisles must be cleared within 24 hours of a storm. Signs designating accessible parking spaces and access aisles that are relocated for the purpose of snow removal must be immediately returned after the weather event.

White Park pond is not ready for skaters

Aspell reports that the recent warmer temperatures left the pond at White Park unskatable. While we don't remember breaking out the Bermuda shorts anytime recently, we're gonna take his word for it and wait for the okay to skate.

Lose the spruce

Through Jan. 30, you can bring them to the transfer station at 77 Old Turnpike Road., Beaver Meadow Golf Course, or the White Farm on Clinton Street. Just don't forget to remove the lights first.

Age: Not since I started wearing sunscreen. Job: Director of public policy for the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence and Concord city councilor. Single or taken: Both or neither. How did you become such a hunkette anyhow? No one actually considers themselves a "hunkette," but no one argues with the Insider either. It is hard being such a hunkette? Not as hard as it is to answer these questions. What advice do you have for aspiring hunkettes? Perhaps next year, your friends will be kind enough to nominate you. If not, a friendly reminder wouldn't hurt. How long have you…
