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.

I don’t golf, but I spend a lot of time in Arizona tooling around in a golf cart. It’s just something lots of us do in a retirement community when the posted speed limit is 10 miles per hour.

Last week, we talked about new businesses and new authors in town and I know they want to thank all of us for supporting them and spreading the word. When I was teaching career education classes at the high school, we spent a lot of time discussing the word “networking."  I believe it will a…

Nine retail pot stores are open for business in Massachusetts, including one on the North Shore, and more are expected in the near future in communities such as Haverhill, where the city has come to terms with three would-be marijuana merchants, Salisbury and Amesbury.

Over the last two weeks I have sat at many different unexpected tables.

I don’t know what it is, but just after all the holiday celebration and preparation my “curmudgeon” side seems to be popping out!

As we were all lined up for the start of the Millennium Mile this year, a beautiful voice, and I only caught her name as Karen, announced to all of us runners “This will give us a running start into the new year!”

Happy Happy New Year everyone! I can’t even believe that Hanukkah and Christmas 2018 have passed and by the time you are reading our story this week New Year’s Eve 2019 will have either rung or will be ringing in!

It’s hard to believe that by the time you are reading our story this week, Christmas 2019 will have passed. I pray you had a nice Christmas and I also pray that you were able to check on a least one friend, neighbor, or loved one that you haven’t checked in with for a while. That’s really wh…

I can’t believe I can even be doing this…. but I’m writing our story from the sky!

Last week we lost a wonderful man, 41st President George H. W. Bush. His message was the same to us from beginning to end — he prayed for a gentler, kinder America.

JEERS to the school administration of Pinkerton Academy for switching up the color scheme for graduation apparently without involving the class of 2019.

Last week we ended our story with a little reminder to shop locally and to head on over to the Nashua Stroll, held this past weekend.

In a collection of essays and stories about farming and food, Wendell Berry, the Kentucky novelist, poet and farmer, mused on the distinction between what we eat and how we eat it.

Last week’s story ended with me saying to you, “I don’t like getting older, but I love watching little ones grow."

Lester W. Chase was a shoemaker, the son of a painter, when he signed up for the National Guard. It was 1916. He was barely 20 years old when his 1st New Hampshire Infantry was sent off to the Mexican border to hunt for the elusive Pancho Villa with Gen. John Pershing.

I’ve been trying to decide which week’s story would be best for us to honor and thank our veterans — those who have served, and are serving now.

Forget season tickets, you could buy your own pro sports franchise. Never mind shopping on Fifth Avenue, you could hire a designer and create your own line of clothes. Why buy a private jet when you could buy an airline? A place in the Bahamas? Phsaw. You could own an island.

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., may have thought she was putting the questions raised about her claim of American-Indian ancestry behind her by announcing the results of a DNA test on Monday. And, given the widespread – and much more accessible – use of DNA tests for people interested i…

The federal government last week announced what most parents and educators have known for at least a couple of years: Vaping among teenagers has reached epidemic proportions.

Finally, football season is back and the voice of the Londonderry Lancers can be heard and loved for another season, thanks to our own Town Manager Kevin Smith who has been our LHS announcer for over 20 years. This week there was a lot of talk about “I had no idea so and so did this, or that…

This is kind of an odd one to talk about, but since it just happened again when John and I were at the Hampton Beach Seafood Festival, I thought maybe I should tell you about it. It’s happened more than once.

I’m not really sure how or when this started, but it's been the way we start some of our mornings for a few months now.

What do you think of the governor's idea of starting school after Labor Day?
