75.    Go Seacoast.com     
        This website features everything going on in the Seacoast area.  What continues to surprise me is that although officially the city of Portsmouth is 21,000+ people, there's a lot to   
        pick and choose from.  For example, this website receives more 50,000 hits a week.

       Now there is also something about NH (this geographic area) that's true...there are trees everywhere (+ everywhere) so it provides the biggest natural privacy walls one could work   
       with thus it never ever seems like the area is over populated in any way.   Lots happening is also due to this area being located on the coast and alongside the only N & S interstate   
       (the one you must take in order to get to ME or MA).

                                                                                www.goseacoast.com

76.   Farmers market on Saturdays 8am- 1pm in Portsmouth via the Seacoast Growers Association. This group manages the Farmers Markets for Portsmouth and the 
        neighboring communities of Durham, Hampton, Kingston, Dover, and Exeter making it possible to shop at a farmers market on multiple days of the week (with a short drive).

Durham: Mondays 2:15—5:30 
Kingston: Tuesdays, 2:15—5:30
Hampton: Tuesdays, 3:00—6:00
Dover:(new location) Wednesdays, 2:15—6:00
Exeter:Thursdays, 2:15—6:00
Portsmouth: Saturdays, 8:00—1:00

77.  Odiorne Point State Park.   This is great place to go hiking/walking as it's a track of over 331 acres.  Below is more description from the Gov. website., day use is $4.

Odiome Point is the largest undeveloped stretch of shore on New Hampshire's eighteen mile coast. Located three miles south of Portsmouth on Route 1A in Rye, Odiorne offers an extensive array of habitats. On the south end of the park, sheltered tide pools of the Sunken Forest give way to an exposed rocky shore. Just north, the shore evolves into a pebble beach which shelters a fresh water marsh. Along the way to Frost Point where a jetty extends into Little Harbor, lies a small sand dune environment. At the end of Little Harbor, Seavey Creek feeds the neighboring salt marsh. Extensive inland disturbances during World War II induced the growth of dense forests in various stages of succession. Large stone walls bound open fields. Fresh water systems are represented within the park by a man-made pond and marsh. Remnants of formal gardens and wildflowers grow side by side; and the man-made military bunkers lie hidden under mounds of earth.

78.  The city of Portsmouth does not require Business Licenses.

       They say this on thier website but I couldn't belieive it so I had to call and confirm.  They answered the phone during the first ring and confirmed it, however there are a few
        exceptions:

       Amusement games, Bowling, Billiards, Employment agencies, petroleum products, pawnbrokers, taxis and vendors (hawkers and peddlers license)

79.  Hampton Beach Casino, Hampton Beach, NH.  Since 1899, a Casino rich in history that's still very alive with live music shows and much more.  Tomorrow night, the Pretenders are on stage (tickets $45).  It's located about 20 minutes south, or 16 miles from downtown Portsmouth.

Here's a clip from their history on music:

"In the 60's, rock 'n roll started to creep into the Ballroom with acts like the Supremes, the Four Tops and the Four Aces. Plus there were folk acts like the Kingston Trio and Peter, Paul & Mary. Gradually, louder bands were added to the schedule -- The Beach Boys, the Fifth Dimension, the Who and the Lovin' Spoonful."

80. NH Seacoast Greenway.   A Bike route and Multi - Use trail.

I've been through Odiorne Point State Park 20 times - there's no fee. (Oh, maybe in "summer"? I never paid a fee) Just park 10' outside and walk in.

Odiorne is very, very, nice. Covered in snow, especially.

Colonial history, (quite moving) and later-ea, too.

Thanks for that, I failed to mention they drop the fee after Labor Day and start it again on Memorial day.

Thanks DREEPA!  We'll make it number 84.


84.  The cops seem to understand open carry in Portsmouth.

The most suprising thing to me about Obama's Health Care Town Hall meeting in Portsmouth yesterday was that the Police Chief of Portsmouth, after being contacted by the Feds regarding "the man with a gun" (i.e.; William), first got the idea, then took the initiative to contact the Priest, (very quickly I might add) and thus give William a "sanctuary" that allowed William to stay, with his gun.   Amazing.  Only in NH!  (here's Williams' interviews for those who missed them -  www.freekeene.com  )
     
I do not know of any Police Chief who has ever done something like this to aid an anonymous freedom loving gun carrying American!  Major KUDOS to the Police Chief of Portsmouth!

85.  Natural Liberty Activists allready in motion.  The Granite State Patriots is one Liberty oriented group that's very outspoken in the pursuit of more liberty.
       People are really used to and all about the Liberty thing!

I don't know.  To me, it seemed that the cops violated the law.  Additionally, I doubt William needed permission to stand near the road or on the church property.

But, yes, the cops could have done an even worse job.  Either way, William did a good job.

Hey Keith, with all due respect.  Think for a second Buddy?  How many states in this country wouldn't have sent in a SWAT Team and took Will away?

I agree in an ideal world it shouldn't have even been an issue, but we don't live in a perfect world.  The police aren't the enemy, the system is.

We have a constitutional right to bare arms, and it seems to me the police in Portsmouth did the best they could, under the system they have to live with too, to respect Will's rights.

Personally I think 84# should stand!

In the couple incidents that I have had dealings with the Portsmouth Police, I have found them to be most respectful.
