Instagram photo of the Week – Tue, 16 Jun 2015

Look at good ol’ Danny Webster, still getting the ladies excited at the ripe old age of 235. We guess that’s what happens when you’re tall, dark and literally sculpted. Word has it he’s also a tremendous listener and he never talks back. This photo is from Instagram user @cherryblueskies89 and was snapped during her second day in New Hampshire – we can only assume she was hangin’ with Franky Pierce the first day. Keep ‘em coming,...

Hurling happened this weekend – on a field with referees and stuff

The Barley House Wolves had their hurling home opener at Amoskeag Beverages in Bow on Saturday afternoon, and hurl they did! They defeated a visiting team from Hartford, and if we understood how the scoring went in hurling, we’d totally put the final score here. It was a perfect day for some good action, though, and there was plenty of opening-day pageantry – the teams walked onto the field to the sound of bagpipes and the first ball...

This Week In Concord History

June 16, 1842: The Democratic platform, as reported in Concord’s New Hampshire Patriot, rails against Whig support for broadening the rights granted to corporations. Only “an unwarranted construction of the Constitution” sanctions corporate privileges, the platform says. “If the policy of creating corporations be continued much longer, our country will (have) all the outward forms of a free Government, but . . . will in fact be...

The Green Street Community Center basketball floor is so perty now

The Green Street Community Center underwent a significant facelift this spring. Or maybe it was more a face replacement – the old gym floor was ripped up and a brand new one was put down. Dare we say, it looks tremendous!

Classic Concord Photo – Tue, 16 Jun 2015

We thought this might have been a prototype for the original game of Clue (“Rev. J.E. Barry did it, in the gymnasium, with the Samurai sword. That was a Clue weapon, right?) But it turns out it’s something even weirder than that, a postcard of St. Paul’s School buildings! That way you could send your classmate in the lower school a special note from the upper school so you wouldn’t have to miss each other between breakfast and dinner....

Well, you can thank the East Concord Garden Club for the visual pleasure. Every spring for quite a while, and we mean quite a while, the ladies of the club have been weeding and...

The Capital Area Wellness Coalition wants you to get the heck outside

It’s New Hampshire, so by the time you read this article, spring is over and the leaves are just about ready to turn color again! While that might be a bit of an exaggeration, there is no doubt that the summers fly by, so we need to get off the couch and take advantage of every beautiful day. I am not much of a “winter sports” guy, although my friends Frank and Kate are always trying to get me out on my cross country skis a little...

Merrimack Valley b-ball is about to look real good on the court

As you all can appreciate, it’s important to look good. Fashion is a big thing nowadays, but it can be downright exhausting trying to pick out the perfect outfit. And we’re just talking about for ourselves when we hit the town, which is nowhere close to the kind of pressure members of the Merrimack Valley basketball teams recently had to deal with. How do you decide not only what you’re going to wear on the court next season, but what...

Ulbrich family thankful for kind messages about their beloved Lily

I write this with a heavy heart yet a glad heart. We lost our beloved chocolate Labrador, Lily, on May 23. Lil touched the lives of so many people – young and old.

Along with my then 10-year-old grand daughter, Amelia, we took Lily to therapy dog training classes with Mary Finlayson. Lily passed with flying colors! We joined a therapy...
