Brendan Smith moved to New Hampshire from Long
Island, New York in 1985.
His first ten years were spent learning to
adjust to life here in Central New Hampshire,
the last seventeen have been spent writing about his
adventures and misadventures for the Weirs Times
as a "Flatlander" - From "Raking
The Roof" to "A Day At The Dump"
and everything in between. In 1997 after being
a contributor to the Weirs Times for many years, Brendan came
to work for the Weirs Times and is now the editor.
Among his "Flatlander" accomplishments:
he started the group F.A.T.S.O. (Flatlanders
Adjusting to Solitary Oblivion) a winter support
group for new transplants; he has run for Governor
of New Hampshire under The Flatlander Ticket
and has entertained groups and organizations
around the state with his speaking.
Brendan'sweekly "F.O.O.L. in New Hampshire" column now takes a tongue-in cheek view on anything and everything that has to do with New Hampshire, The Country and the world.
