Prior to their season finale Saturday afternoon, Serra coach Patrick Walsh said he told his counterpart at St. Ignatius, John Regalia, that the real win would be that this whole COVID season would be over at the end of it.

Pawn shop switches service style

At the very beginning of March 2020, when there were relatively few cases of coronavirus in the Granite State, Roger Weinreich, president of Good Fortune Jewelry & Pawn in Keene, caught the virus. That, coupled with his conversations with business contacts in Asia, prompted Weinreich to shut down his shop even before the governor issued a stay-at-home order.

Collaborations, apparently, are so last season. Now it’s all about “hacking”: history
