10. Free Speech Fridays – Derrick J hosts a weekly open-megaphone session at Central Square.
11. Live Free or Dance – Derrick J hosts a weekly dance party on Friday nights after 10pm at Central Square.

If these do happen, DJ is likely not the host.

Quote
12. Calling WKBK’s “Talkback” – Activists tune into a local Saturday morning politico show, pick up their phones, and present the pro-liberty message to the hosts and listening audience. See the details in the Free Keene Forum.

Does this still happen?

Quote
19. Getting involved with other activist movements – From Occupy Keene to the Tea Party, democrats to republicans, liberty activists are getting involved.

If you are going to capitalize Tea Party, which is debatable; then, it makes sense to capitalize Democrats (short for Democratic Party) and Republicans (short for Republican Party.)

Quote
7. The CRAP Campaign – Satirical video productions by liberty activists featuring “Byron Kingsley”.

Is this still happening?  If not, you may want to refer to it as something that did happen.  The latest video is from Jul 6, 2010.  Also, there were only two videos.

Quote
15. 24-hour CVS and other drug stores including Walgreens and Rite Aid.

Good news.  Isn't Walgreens also 24-hour?  The website says it is. http://www.walgreens.com/

Excellent advice for those considering moving to the Keene area

I don't think Rite-Aid is 24 hour.

Did you feel like it read that way?

"24-hour CVS, 24-hour Walgreens, and other drug stores including Rite Aid"

This way is less confusing. 



although, if you're moving to Keene for the dream of THREE 24-hour drugstores...just buy the meth off the street, already.  Division of labor and all that.

In the Shopping / Food section,
(#4) I beleive Sears Essentials has either closed or is closing.
(#9) I'd add Five Guys.
(#10) 1 of the Friendly’s closed.

In the Endorsements section,
(#1) The Penn endorsement link doesn't work.  Here is a working link,
Penn: "I Should be in Keene, New Hampshire with the Free Staters"

Keene Liberty Activism
6 Television Production – Free Keene TV and Free Minds TV are produced weekly in Keene at Cheshire TV by liberty activists.

Free Minds TV is over.

Quote
12 Free Speech Fridays – Weekly open-megaphone session at Central Square.
13 Live Free or Dance – Weekly dance party on Friday nights during the Summer after 10pm at Central Square.

These don't happen.

Quote
Keene Social Activity and Community Involvement
4 Game Night – Sunday nights at the KAC, activists gather for board, card, and sometimes electronic games.

This doesn't happen anymore as far as I know.

Keene: Liberty Media Capital of the World
2 Free Minds TV & Radio – Hosted by liberty-loving NH natives Toby and Nick, FMTV is widely distributed on cable access channels across New England and originates from Keene’s Cheshire TV. The nationally syndicated talk radio version of the show also originates from the LRN.FM Studio in Keene.

These shows are no more.

Quote
6 Talley.TV – Jason Talley, reporting from the front lines of freedom.

This is no longer based in Keene.

Quote
Shopping / Food
7 Blueberry Fields, for natural/organic enthusiasts. Plus, each major grocery store has a large selection of these foods as well.

You might want to also mention the Hannah Grimes Marketplace here or give it it's own number www.hannahgrimesmarketplace.com

Media Endorsements

It looks like part of that quote is missing.

Good point.  And it isn't just a restaurant.  Last I checked, it's also a store.  If http://www.zepandkal.com/ is still open, it is a veggie restaurant though not strictly vegan on everything.

In the Keene’s Challenges section, maybe add that Rep. Cynthia Chases lives in and represents the people of Keene.

I accidentally posted this in the old 150+ Reasons thread.

3 County Music radio stations in Keene. Many major cities in the South only have 1 or 2 Country Music radio stations. For example, Memphis has 1 or 2 at most, County Music radio stations. Keene, New Hampshire has 3 Country Music radio stations. That might make Keene the Country Music capital of New Hampshire!

WINQ      98.7 FM
WKKN      101.9 FM
WYRY      104.9 FM/W288BN     105.5 FM
