Survive the next disaster with this class

Do you know what to do if an emergency happens? If an earthquake or tornado hit right now, what would you do? Of course, no one thinks that will ever happen here, but people were probably saying that prior to the ice storm back in 2008. Got your attention didn’t we? The Community Emergency Response Team is willing to teach you what to do when a disaster happens. All you have to do is sign up for a three-day class in Bow next weekend...

Finally, a group and place dedicated to slacking off here in Concord

If there’s one thing we can get behind here at the Insider, it’s slacking off – just don’t tell our bosses. Luckily, a new club gives us a place to do just that without that pesky risk of being fired. It’s called Slack Off Concord, and it meets at Rollins Park on Monday afternoons (and sometimes Wednesdays). So what do you do, just sit around and fail to accomplish things all day, pushing them off into the extremely distant future...

Ladies and gentlemen, meet Miss Capital Area’s Outstanding Teen

It’s not every day that you get the chance to talk to a real-life beauty queen. So when we got word that we had one right here in Concord, we had to jump at the opportunity. Brooke Mills, 16, a junior at Concord High, was recently named Miss Capital Area’s Outstanding Teen. She was able to squeeze us into her celebrity-like schedule to answer a few questions. How did you get into this? I was adopted into the Miss America system...

Have you ever seen how the ‘Insider’ is made each week?

Every week is a little different in the “Insider” pod. Sometimes we can kick back, eat some free food that’s been lying around the office for a few days and even take a couple naps in our super secret spot. Shhhh! Others, like last week, can be a bit of a time crunch with the holiday throwing a well-placed monkey wrench into our production cycle, which in turn greatly affects our nap time. So in an effort to show our transparency, we...

Kurt Gergler wanted to work in Bow, so now he’s the BES principal

Every day Kurt Gergler drives to work, it’s like taking a trip down memory lane. His childhood paper route stretched from the end of Albin Road, up Logging Hill, down Grandview and to the highway. And this was a paper route he rode his bike for – no car rides for this one. “Everywhere I turn I see something familiar,” Gergler said. The house he grew up in still stands on Albin Road and hours were spent fishing in the town pond. His...

Good news then, ’cause this Saturday and Sunday just so happen to be the third annual Weekend on the Water at Riverfront Park/Everett Arena. Celebrate Concord’s stretch of the Merrimack River by cheering on the dragon boat races and watching several schools power down the river competing in the Concord Crew...
