Not the same Timothy

The newspapers of yesteryear were full of funny little stories about the picadillos of the folks of the day. Stories, of which, you won’t see printed in today’s papers.

 

 

SaintsandSinnerscover2I’ve included a lot of these short newspaper stories in my first book, Saints & Sinners – The Pioneer Irish of Manchester, NH -1835 to 1900.

Here’s a glimpse of some of those stories-  SS183funnynewsclips

Rev. Fr. William McDonald – The St. Patrick of Manchester, NH

The “St. Patrick of Manchester, NH”.

Founder of Manchester’s first Catholic Parishes and great champion of the poor and needy of his time.

As published in “Saints & Sinners – The Pioneer Irish of Manchester, NH – 1835 to 1900″, by John Patrick Jordan

Calling John Hikel, NHF&G looking for turkey counters

Former NH Rep. John A. Hikel (R) Goffstown

Reading the local newspaper today, I noted an article published seeking volunteers to report wild turkey brood sightings as part of the NH Fish & Game web-based survey program.

Remembering how much former NH State Representative, John Hikel, enjoys turkey hunting, I thought he’d definitely enjoy helping NH Fish and Game out.

What’s the big deal? Word is that former Rep. Hikel, owner of UpTown Auto in Pinardville, is going to run for reelection for NH House. Considering some of the stunts and stories he’s embarrassed our town with in years recent past, I thought a refresher of these stories were in order to remind voters of what’s in store should he prevail. This is just one of many stories.
