Elizabeth McCormack

Age: 30 Job: Attorney at Cleveland, Waters and Bass, P.A. Single or taken: Married. How did you become such a hunkette anyhow? I believe it had to do with my dad and mom and some birds and bees. Although we also had a very attractive milkman. Is it hard being such a hunkette? Ask me when I've had a chance to get used to this new role. Hopefully I won't need to hire an assistant. What advice do you have for aspiring hunkettes? Become good friends with the unofficial mayor of Concord and reigning hunk, Jay Surdukowski. How long have you dreamed of being a hunkette? I wouldn't say that I've dreamed…

Goodbye Cassie, hello Ben

This week, the Insider bids a tearful farewell to longtime reporter Cassie Pappathan.

She also brought us the Food Snob, braved her fear of heights and went hang gliding,…

Age: I'm 62, but I'll cop to 35 after a wine spritzer. Job: Brand-new Patron Relations Manager at Capitol Center for the Arts, founder and director of the Concord Arts Market. Single or taken: Which answer will sell more Insiders? Oh, the Insider is "Free and Awesome." In that case, I'm taken. How did you become such a hunkette anyhow? As is the seeming custom for "candidates" these days, I started campaigning four years in advance. I tried pitching a reality show to increase my popularity, but Concord TV and CBS both turned it down. It is hard being such a hunkette? I'm still acclimating to the…

Jennifer Mazzei

Age: 33, because I like that number. I won't go beyond that until I hit 40. Job: President of J Maze Design, mom of two, wife of one. Single or taken: Taken. How did you become such a hunkette anyhow? I give credit to the shake n weight and pajama jeans. It is hard being such a hunkette? I didn't even know I was a hunkette until the other day. Check back in a few weeks, once the paparazzi is gone. What advice do you have for aspiring hunkettes? Snuggies and slippers are not a good idea to go downtown in, but if you still want to, then make sure you look confident. Nothing sexier than a confident…
