Portfolio Exchange Exhibition: The Average Path Length at PSU Lamson Learning Commons March 7-April 25

PLYMOUTH — The Average Path Length 2013 portfolio exchange exhibition will be presented under the aegis of the Lamson Learning Commons Print Series at Plymouth State University March 7 through April 25.

An opening reception and artist talk by portfolio curator Fawn Atencio will be held at 4 p.m. March 10 at Lamson Learning Commons on Highland Street in Plymouth.

The exhibition presents selected works from 22 nationally and internationally noted printmakers, including Kimberly Anderson Ritchie of the PSU art faculty.
In this portfolio exchange, artists were asked to consider how they interpret path, pattern and the idea of collaboration and building new and positive print relations.
Atencio says, "Small world experiments designed by Stanley Milgrim and other researchers in the 1960s examined the size and connectedness of social networks in the US. The research offered that human interactions can be represented as paths (relationships) connecting nodes (individuals). Thus the idea of six degrees of separation; the average path length between any two people in the world is six relationships from each other."
Fawn Atencio graduated with honors from the University of Northern Colorado School of Art and Design, earning a bachelor's degree in art with a minor in environmental science. She continued her education in printmaking and drawing at Washington University in Missouri where she assisted master printer Maryanne Ellison-Simmons at the Washington University's Island Press from 1998-2000. She completed her MFA degree in 2000 and works as a full-time studio artist in Denver. Atencio's work has been shown and is in private collections internationally and nationally.

Story of Belmont postmaster's thwarting of JFK assassination to be aired beginning tonight

BELMONT — A nearly forgotten Belmont historical saga will air on a Travel Channel "Mysteries at the Museum" episode premiering Thursday, February 27 at 9 p.m. The story is about the heroism of former Postmaster and community leader Thomas Murphy – widely credited as thwarting a 1960 assassination attempt on then President-elect John F. Kennedy. Pauline "Polly" Murphy, his widow, provided family files and memorabilia for the filming, shot on site last summer at the Belmont Public Library. The segment also interviews veteran political journalist and author Jeff Greenfield, whose book "Then Everything Changed", brought the incident to light.

MetroCast Travel Channel 70 and TravelHD 770 schedules show the segment running nearly 20 times through March 7. Program promotion is featured on www.travelchannel.com/tv-shows/mysteries-at-the-museum

GOP state senators hosting info session Monday in Meredith on Senate Health Insurance Proposal

MEREDITH — Senate Finance Chairman Jeanie Forrester, R-Meredith, will hold an informational session to discuss the Senate Health Insurance Proposal (Senate Bill 413) on Monday, March 3 in Meredith.

The session will be an opportunity for Lakes Region residents to learn more about the Senate proposal which will use federal funds to establish a two-year pilot program that will help low-income New Hampshire residents purchase health insurance though the private market. Senator Forrester will be joined by Senate President Chuck Morse, R-Salem, and Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley, R-Wolfeboro to discuss the bill and take questions.

"Today, the state and our hospitals are footing the bill to cover the cost of health care for uninsured Granite Staters," said Sen. Forrester. "As a result, New Hampshire families and businesses are burdened with hundreds of millions of dollars in hidden taxes, paid for in the state budget and through higher cost insurance policies. Further, the improper utilization of our health care system by those who cannot afford insurance increases emergency room wait times, limits the availability of doctors, and impacts the quality of care we all receive. The Republican Senate Health Protection Plan will address these issues based on the conservative principles of state sovereignty, taxpayer protection, and personal responsibility, and I look forward to discussing the merits of the plan with residents at this informational session."

The information session is open to the public but seating is limited. Residents interested in attending are asked to RSVP to Liz Sheil at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 271-4980 by Monday, March 3 at noon.
