His first year of college ball was played for Division 3 Williams in Western Mass. back in 2014.</p> <p>&#8220;He&#8217;s definitely a local product and loves his teams here,&#8221; Robinson&#8217;s coach from Phillips Exeter Jay Tilton said. &#8220;It will be really interesting. This will be the challenge for a lot of people tonight who are longtime Celtics fans. But, I&#8217;ll tell you this, I am a big Duncan Robinson fan.&#8221;</p> <p>While he was able to move on to Michigan for the remaining three years, he went undrafted until he was finally given the change to play in the Miami Heat organization. He only played 15 games in that first season.</p> <p>From there on is was there he really began to shine and was able to work his way up the roster with hard work and grit.</p> <p>&#8220;He spent so much time honing his craft in his free time,&#8221; Tilton said. &#8220;He didn&#8217;t need people to structure workouts for him. He was very independent in that regard and you can tell right away that he had a really high ceiling.&#8221;</p> <p>The teenager from Exeter has grown into a man and thus into a star in the NBA &#8212; something Tilton said he had no idea would happen.</p> <p>&#8220;He was definitely was a late bloomer in the sense that you know,  physically he needed some time to kind of put it all together,&#8221; he said, &#8220;So many people ask me all the time, &#8216;Isn&#8217;t it unbelievable what Duncan is doing?&#8217; I used to say that. Now I think everything is believable with him.&#8221;</p> <p>Tilton said he now finds himself rooting for his player no matter what uniform he wears.</p> <p>&#8220;I&#8217;ll say this, I wore my Heat sweatshirt on the walk today and I got a few funny looks,&#8221; he said.</p> <p>While he may not have been the best player back in high school, Robinson has made himself someone the Celtics are going to have to worry about as they head into Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Salem to sell old fire station https://www.eagletribune.com/news/new_hampshire/salem-to-sell-old-fire-station/article_8d86272f-dc53-5574-95ee-8633bb78bcfe.html www.eagletribune.com - RSS Results in news/new_hampshire of type article urn:uuid:a570544d-e3f4-999d-ae5f-80f080f37bbb Tue, 15 Sep 2020 20:49:39 +0000 SALEM, N.H. — Town officials hope to sell the former North Salem fire station this autumn.

The last parts were a fishing platform at Profile Lake and a pathway.</p> <p>The massive, naturally formed granite profile attracted tourists to Franconia Notch for about 200 years before it crumbled in 2003. Since then, a nonprofit legacy fund has created a memorial plaza, featuring seven steel “profilers” that recreate the Old Man’s image.</p> <p>The legacy fund will turn over the site to the state and will reorganize as a volunteer group called the Friends of the Old Man of the Mountain. It will help maintain the memorial.</p> <p>“We hope we can find some dedicated people to carry it on,&#8221; said Dick Hamilton, a past president of the legacy fund, the Caledonian-Record reported. “Right now, the Friends group has six members and we hope to expand that considerably, especially with young people who have an affinity for the park.&#8221;</p> <p>The memorial also includes a new bridge at the south of the end of the lake, which is stocked yearly with brook trout.</p> <p>Half of the money for the $150,000 project came from the state, and the rest was raised by the legacy fund through donations and sales of granite stone pavers at the plaza, engraved with names and messages of individuals, families, organizations, and businesses.</p> <p>Hamilton said about 35,000 people visit the plaza each year between the Memorial Day and Columbus Day holiday weekends.</p> <p>The image of the Old Man has been a symbol of New Hampshire for generations, appearing on the state quarter, highway signs and license plates. The stone profile was first discovered in 1805.</p> Haverhill library offers virtual programs https://www.eagletribune.com/news/haverhill/haverhill-library-offers-virtual-programs/article_f3e7474d-2a82-508f-b63e-d3a1f974da03.html www.eagletribune.com - RSS Results in news/new_hampshire of type article urn:uuid:ff173ad3-a7a4-be99-6667-1d0cab94eeaf Mon, 14 Sep 2020 10:00:00 +0000 HAVERHILL — The public library is offering a variety of virtual programs.
