The Insiders: It’s almost time to celebrate America’s independence so rest up

Friday, July 3, 2015

We hope that most of you are rereading this in your swim suit and arm floaties as you ramp up to celebrate America’s independence. It’s never too early to get ready, especially when arm floaties are involved. And since the holiday will likely be filled with lots of backyard activities, a significant amount of food and maybe a trip to …

The Insiders: Go to Gibson’s tonight for this novel discussion and maybe find a quote from us on a book jacket

Wednesday, July 1, 2015

You know you’ve officially arrived when you’re a person quoted on a book jacket. It’s an even bigger representation of said arrival when the quote is actually printed on the book jacket and not just scribbled there with the pen you had in your pocket while walking the aisles of the book store. …

The Insiders: It’s the first day of July and St. Paul’s is hosting a blood drive

Wednesday, July 1, 2015

In case it slipped your mind, let us be the first to officially welcome you to July. We’re expecting it to be quite a month ’cause things can really get crazy as the summer fun sets in. But before all of that, why don’t you take a few minutes to flip the page …

The Insiders: Remembering the Holocaust on screen

Saturday, April 11, 2015

The Insiders: These local students are all about the drama – on stage, we mean

Thursday, April 9, 2015

If you get the urge to watch a child perform a drama, you probably just hide your kid’s iPhone . Or you can just wait 15 minutes – a kid blowing a gasket can be a lot like …

The Insiders: Can you really use an umbrella to fly? Go to Merrimack Valley to find out

Thursday, April 9, 2015

This might be a silly question, but have you ever thought of what it would be like to fly high above the clouds? We thought so, but to be clear, we’re talking about doing so without the use …

The Insiders: These are voices of generations, but also voices of regular people you might know

Tuesday, April 7, 2015

It seems like society is always trying to assign voices to a generation (we like to think ours speaks with a flirtatious southern accent, and a barely noticeable but endearing lisp). That’s a lot of pressure. Just look …

The Insiders: Enjoy Easter today, do this stuff tomorrow

Saturday, April 4, 2015

Happy Easter, the day we all celebrate the role pastel-colored eggs, artificial plasticky grass and chocolate bunnies played in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It’s a day for getting together with your extended family and arguing with your extended family and eventually being excited about not having to …

The Insiders: Do embarrassing things in front of your friends and forget about it tomorrow – without having a single drink!

Friday, April 3, 2015

You are getting verrrrry sleepy. *Swings clock thingy in front of your face.* Seriously, did you get any shut eye at all last night? Maybe you should start going to bed earlier. But how about you wait until …

The Insiders: Meet Sir William Herschel – or at least someone who impersonates him

Thursday, April 2, 2015

There have been many times in our careers where we’ve hoped that we could have just a simple conversation with one of our favorite historical figures. Just imagine how great an electricity issue would be after meeting Benjamin …

The Insiders: Want to know about the history of Concord Library? Go there tonight to find out

Wednesday, April 1, 2015

As you may know, Concord is celebrating a pretty impressive milestone this year. No, we’re not talking about the redesign of Main Street or the first full year without use of the Sewalls Falls Bridge, but rather the …

The Insiders: Check the date, then read this column and go to this gallery

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

Good morning, readers! And what a morning it is. Why, you ask? Because today’s the day we all get to stroll downtown and finally lay eyes on the finished Main Street project in all its glory. Finally, no …

The Insiders: Didjeridoo - there, we said it. Now go listen to it

Saturday, March 28, 2015

We could write all kinds of words about today’s Tom Chapin appearance at the Capitol Center for the Arts, but how about just one? Didjeridoo. What’s that? We’re not entirely sure, but we think it’s a funky musical instrument that hopefully makes noises that are as fun to …

The Insiders: Spring is in full swing at the League of N.H. Craftsmen

Thursday, March 26, 2015

With the temperatures slowly rising and the snowbanks melting at a similar pace, it’s hard not to think spring. Like us, you probably have a mild case of spring fever. And that, coincidentally, just happens to be the …

The Insiders: Ain’t no ‘keg party like this Amoskeag Manufacturing party at the Pierce Manse

Wednesday, March 25, 2015

We feel we’ve been somewhat misle d by movies we’ve seen over the years. Isn’t everything in the movies supposed to be true? Like, shouldn’t flying cars be a thing by now? Also, anyone that watched John Travolta …
