Best of NH 2005




You can find examples of "The Best of New Hampshire" in every city town and borough, and sometimes even a thousand miles away from New England. That's where we "discovered" Valerie Beach (pictured here), a national champion arm wrestler (and sixth in the world). We met her while boarding a flight back from Las Vegas. We were at a convention and she was off promoting her sport (which is finally gaining some respect - it will be featured in the next Olympics). She's also a model and a single mom. We're leading this 2005 Best of NH list with her picture because we think she exemplifies the pluck and talent that defines our state's excellence. She also takes a very nice photo.
