N.H. News Roundup: Spring is coming, Dartmouth alum fights for Title IX

(Video credit: Michele Cota YouTube) 

Happy Monday!

I hope the nice weekend treated everybody well. The sun was out, and we avoided a winter storm warning for the first weekend in what seemed like months (today's light flurries don't count!).

I heard birds and saw bugs for the first time since 2012, which is a good thing because that means spring must be on the way. It did get me thinking, however. What can I take advantage of during the waning weeks of winter? There’s still plenty of skiing and snowboarding options available, and in the video above, a group of Granite Staters decided to hike Cannon Mountain in the snow last month.

∎ New Hampshire Parks and Recreation asked “What do N.H. State Parks mean to 18-29 year olds?” There’s also a survey at the end of the blog post.

∎ Looking to the months ahead: if zip lining interests you, check out New Hampshire’s Adrenaline Tour at 10 different locations across the state.

In other news:

∎ Portsmouth police officials said guidelines weren’t violated when a woman named a police sergeant as her new primary executor and beneficiary.

∎ The Manchester police will be conducting sobriety checkpoints during Friday and Saturday of St. Patrick’s Day weekend.

∎ Dartmouth alum and former U.S. womens national soccer star Julie Foudy is still advocating for Title IX.

∎ 37 New Hampshire students made it to the oral round of the 60th New Hampshire Spelling Bee. It was won by 12-year-old Concord-native Hannah Miller. The winning word was “temerarious.”

∎ An ex-Londonderry youth football coach was arrested for youth sex assault.

∎ Intrigued by the evolution of UNH’s mascots? This slideshow from the university should provide some answers.

∎ A bill proposes that the official state colors of New Hampshire should be orange, red and yellow.

∎ Maple Sugar Weekend is just around the corner.
