The Exchange http://nhpr.org en From The Archives: America Hustles http://nhpr.org/post/archives-america-hustles <p>“Our country is a nation on the make,” according to historian Walter McDougall. He says we’re builders, dreamers, go-getters, inventers and organizers, so much so that "hustling" has become an indelible part of the American character and American history. He means it in all senses of the word, even going back as far as colonists's first arrival on American soil.</p> Thu, 03 Jul 2014 13:04:29 +0000 Andrew Parrella 51250 at http://nhpr.org From The Archives: America Hustles The Exchange On The Road http://nhpr.org/post/exchange-road <p><strong><em>The Exchange</em> on the Road<br />with Laura Knoy</strong></p><p>July 10, 2014</p><p>5:30 pm Reception; 6:30 pm Event</p><p>Colonial Theatre, Bethlehem, NH</p><p><em>The event is free to attend, but tickets are required. <a href="https://www.eventbrite.com/e/nhpr-presents-exchange-on-the-road-in-bethlehem-tickets-11573517703" target="_blank">Register for tickets here</a>.</em></p><p>*</p> Thu, 22 May 2014 19:14:24 +0000 48977 at http://nhpr.org The Exchange On The Road From The Archives: Town Meeting; Killington Secedes http://nhpr.org/post/archives-town-meeting-killington-secedes <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">It’s town meeting time!

The centerpiece of his plan is imposing, for the first time, limits on carbon emissions from existing power plants.&nbsp; Environmentalists applauded the announcement, but industry representatives balked, calling the approach heavy handed and warning of plant closures.
