Constantly Pizza whips up heart-shaped pies for Valentine’s Day

Constantly Pizza has been in the pizza-making business since 1990. It’s safe to say they know a thing or two about making a delicious pie. You probably already know that though. What you might not know is that since the beginning, John and Dave Constant have been offering heart-shaped pizzas for Valentine’s Day. “We never advertise it,” Dave Constant said. “We don’t even put it on the menu.” Instead, it’s one of those things that you...

Haven’t found a Valentine’s Day gift yet? Don’t worry, we did the shopping for you

A wise man once said, “If not for the last minute, I’d never get anything done.” That’s sort of our mantra over here, and we imagine we’re not the only ones. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner (or in some cases, already over), and there’s no doubt plenty of you still have to get something for that special someone. Luckily, we went out around downtown Concord and did the shopping for you. You don’t have to thank us, it’s our...

It’s gonna be a crazy couple days for those in the flower business

Just for a second, imagine your busiest work day of the year. We know, it’s not all that fun reliving the stress that comes with it, but we wanted you to have that feeling. We wanted you to visualize the chaos that it means. Because for local florists at D. McLeod, Cobblestone Design Company and Cole Gardens, that day is just around the corner. Yep, you guessed it, Valentine’s Day is by far the most hectic one on the calendar, and...

Bow fourth-graders are putting a new twist on Valentine’s Day

We all remember Valentine’s Day as a kid. Your parents went out and bought a box of cards with superheroes, princesses or the latest and greatest trend on them. You spent about a half hour after school one day filling out your classmates names on the To line and yours on the From, and maybe added a few pieces of chocolate to a bag. You’d hand them out the closest school day before V-Day and get about 15 to 20 from your classmates to...

It’s Primary Day! Oh, and there’s plenty of other stuff going on, too

Tuesday If you’ve been completely disconnected from the outside world for the past six or so months, we feel bad for you. That’s no way to go through life. It’s also no way to learn that the presidential primary – the first in the nation – is upon us. We’re not big on the political stuff here at the Insider, but we’re sure many of you are, so here is your official reminder to go out and vote. You know, if you want to. If you’d like to...

NHTI Wheelchair Basketball Benefit raises money for students with disabilities

The 14th NHTI Wheelchair Basketball Benefit was held last week, and as you can probably guess, there were lots of out-of-control drivers rolling around the NHTI court. In addition to all the high-speed crashes and missed wheelers down the lane, the annual event, held in honor of former NHTI student Zech DeVits, helps raise much-needed funds to purchase assistive technology for NHTI students with disabilities. The total raised through...

Jon lit up the scoreboard at the NHTI Wheelchair Basketball Benefit

During the middle of winter, it’s not as easy to stay active and have fun as it is in the warmer months. My days are often spent entirely indoors, with little to no physical activity whatsoever. But last week I had the chance to get a good, fun workout in at NHTI’s 14th annual Wheelchair Basketball Benefit. The wheelchair basketball game, which features a team of NHTI staff and a team of students, is a fundraiser for the NHTI Student...
