To celebrate the first day of summer, or what officially is known as the Summer Solstice, June 21 at 11:54 a.m. to be exact, I thought I'd keep things a little light and breezy.

Anyone laboring under impression that Facebook actually plans to do something about the waves of “fake news” flooding the social media platform got a wakeup call recently. Or at least it should be a wakeup call.

June 6, 1944 was a day that no French or America citizen during World War II will ever forget.

Thousands of commuters pass by the statue every day. Bobby Orr captured forever in bronze, flying through the air, face suffused with joy after scoring the game-winning overtime goal against the St. Louis Blues in the 1970 Stanley Cup finals.

This week I can bet that I have driven more miles in one week than most people in New Hampshire! It started off with a quick turn around inexpensive Mother's Day weekend to Bethany Beach, Delaware, and ended with a take your breath away University of New Hampshire law graduation ceremony for…

Why is it important to help others during Little Lancer Day at Londonderry High?

May 8, 2019, has been a date I have dreaded for just about five years. You might be wondering why? Well, this is something I never wanted to admit, but it has crossed my mind at least a few times each week.

Combatting tobacco use among teenagers was hard enough when the enemy was cigarettes, with their tell-tale traces of yellowed skin, stained teeth, a rattling cough and, above all else, a stale odor so sticky it could imprint on just about anything. This generation’s habit is far cleaner.

Most of my friends know that once, long ago, I was in the United States Army and that I had served in Vietnam.

Let’s start this week with a very special Happy Mother’s Day out there to all of us moms.

Now that we've observed Earth Day on April 22, let’s take a moment to reflect on the power of the grassroots movement behind that first celebration in 1970, which led to dramatic changes that improved the quality of our lives through cleaner air and water. Shocked by the massive oil spill th…

Last week we ended with me promising to finally answer the question asked by Lois: How did “On The Road With Sherry” get started?

My big plan for this week's story was to tell you how "On the Road with Sherry" got its start.

What makes historic First Parish Church special as the area celebrates Nutfield's 300th?

Last Thursday was a pretty regular day. I had to be in Concord in the morning for a meeting and I thought the afternoon would be filled with the regular kinds of things I would need to make up time. Nothing too exciting one way or another or so I thought.

Here it is, 9:56 p.m. on a Sunday evening and I'm just getting started on our story. I knew what we were going to talk about earlier in the week but I always wonder why sometimes I wait to get started. Usually it means something else is going to happen on the weekend, or somehow the story mi…

Maybe you have heard of this word before but I know that I hadn’t until the other night. John and I were sitting around with Bart and somewhere in the conversation, Bart said something like, "Well, he is plucky!”

Maybe we’ve become spoiled here in the center of the sports universe, but there was something less than stirring about the notion of the World Series champion Boston Red Sox opening the defense of their title some 3,000 miles from home, at T-Mobile Park, the somewhat antiseptic environs of t…

Anyone holding out hope that the completion of Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election would somehow also bring an end to one of the most divisive, fraught times in American political life are likely finding themselves quite disappointed.

The idea behind community recycling has always been simple. Separate your paper, plastic and glass from the rest of your refuse, watch it get picked up curbside and assume it would return to you later in the form of recycled goods.

Are you interested in the political season gearing up with candidates visiting the area?

One thing’s for sure about that hour of sleep we lost over the weekend: We won’t get it back, and generally speaking, that’s not a good thing. In fact, it’s an unhealthy thing.

Six months ago we gained an hour, setting the clocks back before hitting the hay that night. Maybe we stayed up an hour later, finishing a book or mindlessly scrolling through Instagram posts. We might have finished a project we hadn’t had time for before that day.

I have a feeling many of you are going to be like me, and hadn't heard of Public Law RSA 265:37–a. I wish I could say that the first person to contact me with what this law is all about gets a “Sherry’s Not So Famous Chocolate Chip Banana Bread," but this information just can’t wait another week.

After a mentally ill 20-year-old slaughtered 20 young children, six teachers and staff members at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut on Dec. 14, 2012, the nation was stunned. Citizens and lawmakers across the country called for tougher gun laws. The righteous anger at many levels of…

Some of the first things I noticed about Pueblo El Mirage last year, the retirement community where my wife, Betty, and I, have spent the last two winters, were all the brightly colored banners hanging outside the homes with names like Hoosiers, Cornhuskers, Badgers, and Wolverines emblazone…

One thing you all know about me is that I’m a hugger. It just seems so very sad to me that today we have to really stop and think twice, maybe three times, before we reach out to offer a hug or even just touch a hand. (Oh, I’m a hand toucher, too.)

There is still much to be learned about the sting operation at the Jupiter, Florida, massage parlor that led to a charge of soliciting prostitution for Robert Kraft.

By the time you get our story this week it will either be Valentine’s Day Eve or Day 2019. Maybe this Valentine's Day we can all pick just a couple people to spread a little love to.
