Katie McQuaid's Scene in Manchester: High-tech kids can get smart
Zlokower understands the influence that media have on children and young adults. She is executive director of the Manchester-based Media Power Youth, a non-profit that teaches students, parents and educators about the effect all this media has on our children and how we can choose to consume and produce it in smarter and healthier ways.
Most of you who tried to get the free Fun Pass from Breathe NH I gave away to the first person who emailed me last week didn't stand a chance. The winner, Christine L. from Manchester, read the newspaper during her overnight shift at 7-Eleven and emailed me at 3:46 a.m. Congratulations to Christine, who asked me not to use her full name, probably because she was reading the newspaper while she was supposed to be working.
I was pleasantly surprised during a recent visit to Livingston Park last week when I noticed a beautiful, new fountain in the middle of Dorr's Pond. It has a refreshing sound and seems to keep the water from stagnating.
