Column: We need 603 Reasons — from you


We’re collecting a list of 603 reasons why New Hampshire is like no other state. From that list, reporters for the Derry News and the New Hampshire edition of The Eagle-Tribune will write stories for the next year, examining how those reasons our readers put forth affect life in the Granite State, separate fond memory from fact, explore how safe some of the reasons are from the march of time and development.

But we need help. We’re more than halfway there, thanks in large part to our Derry News Facebook “friends.”

We need more.

Does some of the Northeast’s best fishing, fresh and saltwater, keep or drive you here? Do you thrill to the smell of fair food or the first taste of maple syrup in the spring? Do you track the reports from high atop Mount Washington? Are your family’s scrapbooks filled with images of generations visiting Clark’s Trading Post, Santa’s Village, the cog railway?

Without your input, we can’t move forward. Tell us why you love this state in an email to, on our Facebook page, in a letter or when you see a reporter out and about.

We’re eager to dig deeper, so we’re counting on you.
