LACONIA — Irwin Automotive is taking part in Hiring our Heroes, a nationwide effort sponsored by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce which was created to help military veterans and their spouses find meaningful employment.
Irwin Automotive has found many advantages in hiring veterans at all of their dealerships. Veterans have proven leadership skills, strong work ethic, and real-world experience according to Chris Irwin, Vice President of Irwin Automotive.
"Every veteran we have hired here has been a true team player. They recognize a common goal and work hard with their coworkers to achieve that goal. Taking part in the Hiring our Heroes Program has been beneficial to many veterans, but has greatly benefited Irwin Automotive, as we have gained many well-rounded, ambitious employees,'' says Irwin.

PLYMOUTH — The Department of Music, Theatre, and Dance at Plymouth State University will host a staged reading of Shakespeare's King Lear at 7 p.m. February 21 and 22 in the Smith Recital Hall at the Silver Center for the Arts.
The program features professional director and actor John Briggs, a well-known and highly praised director and adaptor of Shakespeare's plays as King Lear. Briggs has created and directed provocative adaptations of Shakespeare for Georgia Shakespeare Festival, including Hamlet, Godfather of Brooklyn; The Merchant of Venice: 1938; Macbeth and Richard III; the Cowboy Comedy of Errors, and Julio Cesar (for which he received critical recognition in the prestigious Shakespeare Quarterly. At Plymouth State, Briggs has directed Ah! Wilderness, Eleemosynary, Ghost Sonata, and Illyria (a musical adaptation of Twelfth Night).
A staged reading " ... is concerned with the play proper, without visual elements and other production values. The audience is expected to hear the ideas and intent of the playwright through the actors' interpretation, and that is its beauty," according to Briggs.
Tickets for this staged reading are $6 for all seats, at the Silver Center Box Office, (603) 535-2787 or (800) 779-3869. Tickets are also available online at silver.plymouth.edu.

CAMPTON — The Campton Congregational church located on Route 175 in Campton is in the process of building a computer learning center specifically for seniors, beginners or anyone else with a specific computer need that requires special help. It will be starting in the very near future and will be available once each week in the morning, afternoon and the evening on either each Tuesday or Thursday for about 20 weeks.

You will be permitted to bring your own laptop which may have Windows 7 or an earlier operating system such as Vista but they will be limited to some extent. Windows 8 or 8.1 will not be permitted since they are quite different and not compatible with all the other Microsoft operating systems.
Specifics of the course will include: 1) Properly turning the computer on and off, 2) How and what should a person buy. 3) How to send an E-mail, 3) Protecting a computer from a virus. 4) Finding up to date medical information, 5) Retouching photos 6) Finding a long lost love or friend, 7) Using a word processor 8) Using a spread sheet and 9) Finding weather reports. The list can go on and on.
