Instagram photo of the Week – Tue, 30 Jun 2015

There was a tornado watch in Concord when Instagram user @starryeyedandrestless snapped this photo, but there was strangely no eerily-backlit-clouds-that-look-like-buttered-popcorn warning. Weird.

The VNA does a lot more than just come to your home for a visit

About four years ago, the Concord Regional Visiting Nurse Association wanted to know what was important to you. “Our agency really wanted to learn from our community,” said Keliane Totten, vice president of community health and business development. So they held a bunch of listening groups in their 39-town coverage area to find out what kinds of programs people were interested in. While the VNA sees patients ranging from birth to end...

For patients and families, the VNA Hospice House feels like home

The couches in the living area are big and comfy and face a rather large flat screen TV mounted to the wall. There’s always snacks on the kitchen counter, baked goods and fruit, and the art work as you walk down the hallway is vibrant and calming. Outside the front door is a lush garden of flowers and plants, with a seating area next to a small water feature. There’s even a granite bench in the shape of the Granite State. Now all of...

Help Heights residents celebrate past and present at Old Home Day

In 2013, a group of former Dame School classmates from 1960-1968 decided it was long overdue to host a reunion of sorts for neighbors and friends that grew up on the Concord Heights. A decade when on any given day there would be a neighborhood pick-up basketball or baseball game, the pool was filled to its limits, the park was filled with families and the sound of laughter; where the community held Fourth of July and Christmas parades...

Playing dodgeball in a rock climbing gym is a thing that exists now

In the famous words of Patches O’Houlihan, if you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball. And if you ever happen to be playing the character of Justin in a remake of the movie Dodgeball, this is when we’d urge you to quickly use one of the five D’s of dodgeball – dodge, duck, dip, pe or dodge. Yes, we know there are really only four, but you can’t really argue with Patches. Luckily for all of us, wrenches aren’t typically used when...

In the market for new Market Days entertainment? Good, here’s some

We love being able to walk down the middle of the street without the threat of a moving vehicle causing what would be an otherwise unnecessary trip the emergency room. And while that’s one of the many reasons we enjoy Market Days, it’s not the only one. There is delicious food, music and mini golf to sweeten the pot.

If you’re in need of care, CRVNA will come right to your front door

The last thing any of us wants is to get sick or injured. Unless it happens to be on a Friday when it gives you a random three-day weekend. But usually when those circumstances arise, it’s more of a quick thing and you’re back to your normal self when Monday rolls around. What we’re talking about are real illnesses or injuries that require more than a day on the couch and an extra nap; like a trip to the emergency room or maybe even...

This Week In Concord History

June 30, 2003: The House narrowly fails to override Gov. Craig Benson’s veto of the Legislature’s 2004-05 state budget, leaving New Hampshire without a new two-year spending plan when the 2004 fiscal year began at midnight. The government will not shut down today, however, because lawmakers passed a temporary budget that will keep the state running through Oct. 1.
