Local Harvest CSA is a good way to meet all your vegetable needs

Eating your veggies is an important part of being a healthy human being. At least that’s what we’ve been told since we were old enough to know it was the only way we’d get to leave the dinner table and play with our toys. Maybe that’s why we bring carrots for lunch every day, because if not, there’s no way we could go outside for recess. But in all seriousness, vegetables are actually quite tasty, whether they’re raw or cooked in...

Instagram photo of the week – Tue, 09 Jun 2015

Um, construction guys, we hate to break it to you, but it looks like when you were putting in the gymnastics rings for when Concord hosts the 20-whatever summer Olympics thanks to its revitalized downtown, you put them in upside down. Also, nobody has three arms. Signed, management. That’s a joke, of course (complete list of things that would be worse than having the Olympics in Concord: full-body poison ivy). These are actually the...

Grab a blanket and pull up some lawn for the library’s music series

So we just want to paint a little picture for you – using words, of course. It’s a weekday night and you’re down by the library. All of a sudden you hear music around the corner and catch the sweet smell of hot dogs and pizza. Of course, you have to check it out. And what you’ll see is not only a band set up in the middle of Prince Street (the one that stretches from Green Street to North Spring Street between the library and the...

These St. Paul’s alumni and students made summer’s dog days bearable

It can get hot out there this time of year, especially if you happen to be under a thick, luxurious coat of fur. And dogs can’t do any manscaping, so they’re pretty much just stuck with what they got. Not anymore, though – at least not outside at the Pope Memorial SPCA, where a group of St. Paul’s alumni and students stopped by last Friday to help clean up the dog yard and build a shady area for the pooches to hang out in. The...
