Merrimack, NH

I got to walk on a frozen lake today. Two months here and that was still something I had yet to do. Mission Accomplished.

I did a quick multimedia piece on a local martial arts instructor yesterday (still editing) which I'll post soon. This is a little side action that won't make it into the final cut.

Since graduating from Alvirne High School last month, seventeen-year-old Matt Lavigueur of Hudson has committed his time and energy to the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign. He campaigned for the senator in the New Hampshire primary as well as in the most recent Massachusetts primary. "If you want to see some crazy stuff you should join a campaign," he said about his many hours calling voters and campaigning door to door.

New Hampshire: A Look Back

Since it's Super Tuesday and the race is getting smaller every day...let's look back the campaign season, only a month ago. Remember a month ago? Fred Thompson? Bill Richardson? Who were they? Here's a little gem I found from NY comedian Eugene Mirman.

Arena Football


Arena Football, originally uploaded by Johnny Simon.

I went to cover the open tryouts for the Manchester Wolves arena football team yesterday afternoon. I was expecting some sort of scrappy little tryout, kind of like a grown up Bad News Bears, but it was mostly guys in their mid-late 20s and some pushing their mid thirties. One kid was even my age (20). I was shooting for a multimedia piece that was supposed to run today, but it seems the Telegraph's trusty online staff forgot to put it up.
