Rebecca Lavoie

Age: 37 Job: Producer, Word of Mouth, NHPR Single or taken: Taken. How did you become such a hunkette anyhow? Big hair, awesome boots, and careful camouflage of a not-so-hunky midsection. It is hard being such a hunkette? Devastatingly, especially as photo editing technology isn't quite keeping up with my touch-up needs. What advice do you have for aspiring hunkettes? Watch everything J-Woww does very carefully. And then do exactly that, minus the random rage. How long have you dreamed of being a hunkette? Ever since I saw my very awkward high school yearbook photo. When I look in the mirror…

Lose the spruce

Don't kick those dried-out old Christmas trees to the curb. Get rid of them at one of the city's approved disposal locations. 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.

Amanda Grady

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.

If not, a friendly reminder wouldn't hurt. How long have you…

Marianne Jones

Job: Executive director, Women's Fund of New Hampshire. Single or taken: Married 20 years, three kids, two dogs, messy house . . . ah, can you repeat the question? How did you become such a hunkette anyhow? You have to be born into it. Is it hard being such a hunkette? Not when you shop at Fabulous Looks Boutique on Main Street! What advice do you have for aspiring hunkettes? It's all about brains, exercise and inner peace. How long have you dreamed of being a hunkette?

This week in Concord history

- Dec. 28, 1835: William Chandler is born in Concord. He will go on to become a U.S. senator and secretary of the Navy. He will found the Rumford Press and revitalize a struggling Monitor. - Dec. 28, 1978: State and Concord police officers arrest 28 people in the largest drug bust in city history. Thirty-one people are eventually charged, but the Merrimack County attorney will eventually drop all charges. The chief reasons: a lack of cooperation between the police and prosecutors and flaws in a diary recording the work of an undercover agent. - Dec. 29, 1933: The low temperature in Concord is 21…
