We’re back in school again, and back at the polls. Seemed like a good time to listen back to this conversation on the Exchange from 2009. Laura spoke with a few members of a newly appointed task force to examine the state of civics education in NH.
The former White House Press Secretary was also Vice Chair of the National Brain Injury Association. He came to NH for a technology expo focusing on new technology for people living with disabilities in 1995, not long after that he spoke with NHPR’s Laura Kiernan on our Perspectives program.
A New Hampshire college student's proposal for a community kitchen in Boscawen is in line to undergo a USDA-funded feasibility study.
A community kitchen would provide farmers and entrepreneurs with access to processing, packaging and storing facilities. For smaller enterprises, the access to such a facility would mean a chance for expanded production and profits.
Loyal Market Basket customers will often say it's the low prices that keep them coming back. The chain has long been associated with bargain prices on brand-name items, and that was before former CEO Arthur T. Demoulas chose to give customers 4 percent off their entire purchase this year.
But just how much cheaper is Market Basket, when compared with Hannaford and Shaw's?
Many people are under the impression that the Market Basket workers they've seen protesting outside New Hampshire stores are on strike.
That's not the case, at least not for most of them.
"No, we're not striking. We're just rallying," said Justin Desjardins, a 22-year veteran of Market Basket who was protesting outside the downtown Concord store last week. "We all plan on rallying. They're really pushing the 71 stores, 71 rallies."
Most workers are still filling their shifts, but are protesting outside their stores during off-hours.
Sagamore-Hampton Golf Club in North Hampton has all the characteristics of a golf course. It has manicured fairways, rows of golf carts and a pristine clubhouse. Its patrons are all dressed in golfing garb, awaiting their turn to tee off down the first fairway. However, there is something a little odd about this course, something that doesn’t quite fit.
Amidst the traditional golfers are young kids holding soccer balls. They are here for a different game called FootGolf. That’s right, FootGolf, a sport that combines golf and soccer.
Someone in your family probably remembers a time when receiving a letter was unusual. The message was typically handwritten and personal, and it told you that someone in another part of the world thought enough about you to sit down, organize their thoughts and craft a message, just for you.
There are still places in New Hampshire where getting mail is just as special, mostly because of how it's delivered.
Archivists are all about anniversaries…we put a man on the moon 45 years ago this week, The Exchange marked that anniversary with help from the Sky Guys the other day. This week is also the 10th anniversary of Killington, VT officials meeting with NH Gov. Craig Benson about plans for secession and perhaps throwing in with the Granite State (more about that here).
