I absolutely adore this photo by Valley News photographer Rick Russell, which he took on earlier this week on near the Mascoma Sailing Club on Mascoma Lake. The boat is named “Little Which Hazel,” Rick told me. (P.S.: Any guesses which animal left the tracks?)
Morgan Bardonstone, 18, of Unity, right, and Ambrose Donth, 19, of Claremont, pass by a large menorah on display as part of the holiday decorations in Broad Street Park in Claremont, N.H., Tuesday, Dec. 18, 2018. City resident Sam Killay, an atheist, has registered a complaint with the city council against the display of the menorah and a creche in the park. He said that having the symbols on city property violates the establishment clause of the first amendment and that if they are not taken down he will apply to put up anti-religious symbols alongside them.

A Claremont man is embroiled in a conflict with his fellow residents, who have taken to social media to protest a request he made to the City Council last week asking it to remove the holiday decorations it has installed in Broad Street Park, claiming it is a First Amendment violation.

In episode 3 of the Valley News’ collaboration with CATV, news editor John Gregg talks with reporter Nora Doyle-Burr about a $70 million class-action lawsuit that seven female science students filed against Dartmouth College in mid-November, alleging sexual harassment and assault by three former professors.
Then, staff photographer James M. Patterson joins Gregg and Doyle-Burr to talk about the story of Mandy Dube, a Unity resident who sued the state of New Hampshire nearly five years ago in a different class-action suit brought on behalf of people with serious mental illness. Patterson has followed Dube’s story for 8 years and he and Doyle-Burr checked in with Dube — and the state of New Hampshire’s mental health care system — for a story in a recent edition of the Sunday Valley News.
