Updated: May 02, 2015 - 1:41 pm

WILMINGTON - After a record breaking and brutal winter, it’s not surprising to see the potential purchase of additional safety vehicles topping Warrant Articles for Saturday’s Annual Town Meeting. In addition, schools are looking at improvements, and the ever present battle for the Whitefield School, the Ristuccia Arena and Yentile Farm are last but certainly not least.

Quebec City and Montmorency Falls
Posted: April 25, 2015 - 12:51 pm

As the weather improves and gas prices remain somewhat reasonable, planning a road trip might enter your thoughts. If you crave getting beyond the borders of our two little towns, nee the borders of our country, consider a visit to Quebec City and a side trip to Montmorency Falls. While known for its winter carnival and famous ice hotel, the city is a marvelous destination in warmer weather, perfect for families, couples or single travelers. Travel services abound and tourist offices are readily available, staffed with English speaking assistants.
