Ribbon Cutting Celebrates Business Name Change

The T. Murray Wellness Center, Inc. was founded by Dr. Trish Murray over 12 years ago and has been the place to go in Mt. Washington Valley to alleviate pain. Over the past 6 years, Dr. Murray has trained and become certified in another specialty, functional medicine which is root cause medicine, focusing on finding the underlying cause of chronic diseases or conditions. “This is a multi-systems approach to medicine”, said Dr. Murray. “We look at all systems to find the reason for the condition and help people learn what changes they can make to help improve their health.”

JOSIE PEARCE CROWNED AS 12TH MISS BERLIN-GORHAM AND MIA LETOURNEAU CROWNED AS MISS BERLIN-GORHAM’S OUTSTANDING TEEN!

The Twelfth Annual Miss Berlin-Gorham Scholarship Competition took place in the Medallion Opera House at the Gorham Town Hall on Saturday, November 4th.  Miss Josie Pearce of Hanover was crowned Miss Berlin-Gorham 2018 and was awarded a $5,000 scholarship.  The daughter of Owen and Erin Pearce of Rossmoor, California.  Josie attends Dartmouth College.  Josie performed classical piano:  “Doctor Gradus ad Parnassum” her platform is “Lupus Foundation of America”.  The local title earned her the right to compete in the Miss New Hampshire Scholarship Program to be held on April 26, 27 & 28th, 2018 at the Stockbridge Theater at Pinkerton Academy in Derry, NH.

The first runner up, Ashley Marsh of Laconia who attends Plymouth State University, and is the daughter of Dawn Marsh, won a $500 scholarship, and the second runner up, MacKenzie Herlihy of Tamworth who attends Southern Maine Community College and is the daughter of Thomas and Alexandra Herlihy, won a $250 scholarship. Contestants who are residents of or attend school full time in Coos, Grafton or Carroll County are eligible to compete for the title of Miss Berlin-Gorham.

Mia Letourneau of Berlin was crowned Miss Berlin-Gorham’s Outstanding Teen 2018 and won a $250 scholarship.  Mia is the daughter of Steven and Lauren Letourneau.

Mark Mandeville and Raianne Richards will perform live on Saturday, November 18th at 7:30 pm at the Medallion Opera House

Mark Mandeville and Raianne Richards will perform live on Saturday, November 18th at 7:30 pm at the Medallion Opera House, 20 Park Street, Gorham Town Hall, Gorham.  Tickets will be $12.00/Adult and will available in advance at the Gorham Town Hall and online at Medallion Opera House or at the door. The concert is sponsored by Marie’s Boutique and Scoggins General Store in Gorham.

Mark Mandeville and Raianne Richards are clearly inheritors of a timeless legacy, creating music that is both original and evocative of a rich tradition. Blending distinctive voices and a wide range of accompaniment (guitar, harmonica, ukulele, clarinet, penny whistle, electric bass), their songs have been well-received by audiences around the eastern United States since 2010. Transcending the genre of folk Americana, their music echoes inspiration from traditional folk duos and singer/songwriters like Ian & Sylvia, Kate Wolf and Neil Young – combining beautiful harmonies and a lyrical intensity, while establishing a unique sound of their own.

Their new CD, Grain by Grain, demonstrates an ever progressive richness in songwriting and performance. From the opening title song through its closing track—“Across the Morning”—it is an exemplar of what modern Americana can and should be. I maintain that Mark and Raianne’s previous CD—Hard Times & Woes—is one of those rare singularly perfect albums, but with Grain by Grain this talented duo takes it all to a new level, rivaling their earlier effort with terrific original songs beautifully presented.

Both artists are products of central Massachusetts mill and factory towns, and for all their national exposure, they are passionately dedicated to the region and what it has to offer. Each summer for the past eight years they have organized the “Massachusetts Walking Tour” where they hike the roads and trails of the Commonwealth, more than 100 miles in less than two weeks, in support of the arts in local communities along the way. Each eveningthey stop over in yet another Massachusetts town, putting on a free concert there, along with local performers and fellow artists who accompany them on their journey. These annual two-week treks also raise awareness of the trails and greenways in Massachusetts, using music to make important connections. It is my privilege to be able to join them each year for these annual walks and evening concerts, just as it has been my pleasure and honor to have Mark and Raianne on my radio program multiple times over the last several years. They also represented the folk tradition at WICN’s 45th Anniversary gala at Worcester’s Mechanics Hall. With their bandmates—Doug Williamson on bass and piano and Peter Hart on pedal steel guitar—they continue to  impress listeners with their heartfelt songs and to inspire in me an even deeper appreciation of contemporary American folk music.
