Have you ever wondered why that traffic light on West Main Road takes so long to turn green? Or, why there are three gas stations within a half mile of each other? Or, why did Portsmouth High School chose the Patriot as its mascot?
Well, so do we and we're going to do something about it. But we can't do it without your help!
You Ask … Patch Answers is a weekly column for locals looking for solutions to community problems or issues. Everything from farming to potholes to eye-sores to local mysteries: Why has the town council not enforced the ban on golf at Glen Farm? Why does everything seem to close at 9 p.m. in town? Why does a blue light glow at night within the masonic lodge? Why? WHY?! WHY?!?!
If you've got a question about something in Portsmouth, send it to Sandy@Patch.com and our team of intrepid reporters will dig up an answer.
But wait, it gets better: If your question appears in our column you will receive a gift from Patch.
So email us and check back on Mondays for You Ask … Patch Answers.
