Jaffrey-Rindge: Student goes to primary meet

Wednesday, February 3, 2016

The stereotypical American teenager is lazy, self-absorbed and apathetic about politics. But if students from Seth Farmer’s senior civics class at Conant High School are any example, that image may soon change, and senior Alex Dunn could be the poster child.

Looking Back: My love of tennis and a valentine for Bud

Monday, January 25, 2016

When my parents bought our house in Claremont in 1943, a clay tennis court came along with it. This was the last thing they needed, but apparently the previous owners, the Fry family, played tennis, so we inherited the court along with an arrangement with a group of …
