Common objects, uncommon art
How X-acto knives, children’s clay and other everyday stuff inspired local artists
By Adam Coughlin acoughlin@hippopress.com

There is usually a crowd surrounding Tom Worcester. This day is no different. The early August sun beats down as Worcester chats with a group of people. With his gruff voice, tattooed arms and bandana, Worcester looks like a tough character. But his smile betrays his rough exterior. He loves his job. And he is about to go to work.

Reading Afghan women’s stories aloud
By Jeff Mucciarone jmucciarone@hippopress.com

As it has for the past five years, Goffstown Public Library (2 High St., 497-2102) is hosting the September Project, which grew nationally out of the 9/11 attacks. The library remained open for 24 hours on Sept. 11 and hosted a candlelight vigil earlier this month. It will host a free public event, Out of Silence, which entails theatrical readings of stories and poems by Afghan women Sept. 30 at 6:30 p.m. Visit septemberproject.org. Sandy Whipple coordinates adult services and outreach at the library.

By Dave Long dlong@hippopress.com

Time to empty out the thoughts collecting in my cluttered mind.

Since I’m more biased than the fair and balanced network when it comes to college football, my number-one team in the land is Chip Kelly’s Oregon, I can’t remember if it’s Ducks or Beavers — but I’ll get an e-mail from brother Keith Kelly straightening me out on that.

FOOD: Vegetarian: ‘not as scary as it sounds’
It’s easier than ever to eat out and eat veggie
By Angel Roy aroy@hippopress.com

Local restaurants are boasting unique all-veggie menu items that they say will even satisfy the appetites of most meat-lovers.

TECHIE: Netbooks under $100
Oh, you better believe there’s a catch
By John Andrews  jandrews@hippopress.com

The catch is that they suck.*

The pitch is, OMG, a computer for really cheap! And with the way computers have been divebombing in price for years, it’s really not that astonishing that a serviceable computer might finally appear at that magical two-digit price point.
