The Tampa Bay Rays outfielder helped the Seacoast Mavericks celebrate their first annual Hot Stove Dinner and Auction at Harbor Events Center.
The Seacoast Mavericks first Hot Stove Dinner and Auction was greeted with a lot of excitement and energy just a month after the Futures Baseball Collegiate League team announced they would call Portsmouth home. Boston Red Sox Catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Sam Fuld, a Phillips Exeter Academy graduate, added even more buzz to the evening.

It's part of a unique new system.
Those huge green rigs on the Phillips Exeter Academy lawn are digging hundreds of feet into the ground to make way for an alternative energy system that the school says will give off less pollution. Crews are installing a geothermal system that will harness heat generated naturally underground. Plans call for 49 wells that will reach 400 feet underground, according to an overview of the project. A sketch of the project can be found above in the photos. A pump will push a glycol solution through a pipe system. The solution will be warmed by the earth and shoot back up to a mechanical system that will cool or heat Phillips Hall. The system is about 30 percent more efficient than a traditional heating/cooling system. There's no air pollution …

Deaglan McEachern is hoping to qualify for the Summer Olympics.
Deaglan McEachern said it takes 10,000 hours before someone can get really good at something and he has spent at least that much time rowing since he first took up the sport as a sophomore at Phillips Exeter Academy in 2000. Twelve years later, the 28-year-old Portsmouth native hopes to qualify for the men's pair event at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London and it will all come down to how well he and his teammate on the U.S. National Rowing Team perform in the qualifying race on June 12 in Princeton, N.J., where the U.S. National Rowing Team trains. McEachern is confident he can achieve a time of 6:24 or less in the 2,000-meter rowing event. There will be as many as 12 two-man teams from across the country who always want to compete …

School officials want to make them safer.
Phillips Exeter Academy will soon test a new crosswalk system with enhanced safety features. The pilot program will be at the crosswalk near the Exeter Historical Society. Phillips Exeter will pay for it. If it's successful, it could be expanded to about a half-dozen other crosswalks around the Phillips Exeter campus. The new system will use a combination of LED lights and reflective signs, among other features. Currently, the crosswalk near the historical society has faded paint and a small, free-standing sign in the middle of the road. School officials devised the system over the last few months. Exeter Selectmen approved the pilot program Monday night. "It sounds like a good plan," said Selectman Frank Ferraro. "It's a step up from what…
