    Checklist for a Healthier Fall

    A New Hampshire brewery housed in a historic farm has adopted two donkeys as new mascots for the establishment.

    Throwback Brewery owners Annette Lee and Nicole Carrier purchased Hobbs Farm in North Hampton in 2015. They inherited local staple Jericho the donkey, who was beloved by the community and mourned after his death in 2015.

    The Portsmouth Herald reports Throwback dedicated a beer to the 27-year-old Jericho after his death, calling it the Donkey-Hote — a brew which quickly became their top seller. Carrier says patrons kept asking them when they would get another donkey.

    Lee says they found the donkeys Earl and Rockwell from an online ad in November. They are now housed in an open enclosure close to the brewery with a host of other farm animals.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.
