What does 2019 have planned for us?

A lot went down in Concord in 2018. And we were there to not only enjoy it (like all the new places to grab a bite, sweet treat and have a little fun) but also share all the juicy details.

So instead, we’ve come up with some things to be on the lookout...

Our old friend Tim reacquaints himself with Concord

It’s only been a few months since I sadly left the Insider, but it feels like forever ago that I was scouring the streets of Concord in search of the next great story. As some of you know, I still work half my week for the Monitor (the other half for the Ledger-Transcript in Peterborough), but most of said work is done at home, and very rarely do I make my way to the big city. And I’ll have to say, I’ve missed this place. As a member...

Tandy’s wants to find you a match

In today’s world, meeting someone to spend the rest of your life with – or even a few casual dates – just isn’t as easy as it used to be.

At least that’s how it all went down for me. But with busy schedules, online dating apps and people being more guarded toward others, it...
