Travel & Leisure

An employee of Utah-based Ice Castles LLC worked Monday afternoon on the ice castle under construction on the grounds of the Hobo & Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroads in Lincoln. The ice castle is about a week behind schedule due to warm temperatures during both the day and night, and most recently, rain, which fell in abundance in Lincoln and throughout the North Country this week.

Warm temps and rain delaying construction and opening of Lincoln ice castle

Warm temperatures and rain are delaying the construction and opening of the ice castle that is being built on the grounds of the Hobo & Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroads.

It didn't look like much on Friday, but Dan Beck, Ice Castle LLC's site manager in Lincoln, has a plan to build an acre-sized palace out of nothing more than frozen water on the grounds of the Hobo & Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroads. The ice castle is expected to open in late December, and, weather-permitting, to be around until late March.

Ice castle to rise again in Lincoln

Coming off an inaugural season that boasted 50,000 visitors, an ice castle is returning to town, albeit bigger, better, and at a new location that offers more parking and easier access.

Nature Talks: Taking a closer look at the red-bellied woodpecker

A FACEBOOK FRIEND posted a message a couple weeks ago excited about seeing a red-bellied woodpecker for the first time at her home in Effingham, a small town at the foothills of the White Mountains near the Maine border. Other friends commented on her post about their own sightings, including one person from Concord who began seeing them a few years back.

Dining & Food

Fire-roasted Tomato Feta Relish is easy to make, and can be retitled depending on what kind of canned tomatoes you use.

Store-bought snacks? Really? These treats are almost as easy, and much more delicious

Going to a party? Don't bring store-bought munchies when you can make these in no time.

Jaime West and her son Ian pose in front of the Conway Public Library recently with West's 2002 Dodge Caravan, which she received earlier this year from Good News Garage. A Manchester-based charity, GNG since 1996 has provided more than 4,000 donated vehicles to qualified, low-income recipients in Vermont, Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

Good News Garage offers hope to those in need

It may not be new or laden with luxuries, but Jamie West says her minivan, provided by Good News Garage, is a life-changer and a life-saver, as well as an example of the kindness and consideration that the single mom is working to one day repay.
