The Radisson ballroom was not yet full, and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump would not arrive for almost an hour. Already, the crowd chanted, “lock her up.” Peter Vincello from Raymond was on his way in, with his 15 year-old son. “He kinda talked me into it. I was actually supporting Cruz in the primary.” But now, Vincello said, “He says all the right things, second amendment, getting the economy back, law and order.” As the rally got underway, Donald Trump did not veer from his...

Two defendants are set to become the first to plead guilty in Nevada to federal charges stemming from an armed confrontation with U.S. land management agents near Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy's ranch in 2014.

Gerald "Jerry" DeLemus of New Hampshire is expected to enter his plea Tuesday.

Blaine Cooper of Arizona is due in court Thursday.

Attorneys for both defendants say they can't talk about the pleas until after they're entered.

 

New Hampshire Department of Transportation officials say the Sarah Mildred Long Bridge remains closed to traffic following a malfunction, and it's possible the span may never reopen.

The 76-year-old bridge, which connects Portsmouth to Kittery, Maine via the U.S. Route 1 Bypass, malfunctioned at about 11 a.m. Sunday and became stuck in its down position.

Because federal law mandates that river traffic takes precedence over cars, the lift span was raised early Monday morning and now remains stuck in its up position.

When Governor Maggie Hassan talks about why she got into politics her explanation tends to center on her son, Ben.

“Right after he was born Tom and I learned that Ben had severe and pervasive physical disabilities.”

Less emphasized is the role of her father, Robert Wood, a pioneering academic and who held top government jobs -- and even considered his own run for United States Senate in Massachusetts.

Surf’s up, boards out. It’s still summer, and there’s still time to get out on the water. On the New Hampshire seacoast, paddleboard yoga is an up-and-coming summer sport.

It was 6:30 on a recent Tuesday night. Seabrook Harbor at sunset. Motorcycles on the strip, planes overhead, and a crew of women, doing yoga on paddleboards. I was one of them, out on the water in downward dog, bobbing in the waves.

Today, we pull the tent flaps back on camping. 

Every summer, thousands of Americans load up the car and head into the wilderness on outdoor excursions.

Now, a new book traces the origins and evolution of this tradition, examines a few unorthodox camping methods, and ponders the joys of subjecting ourselves to the buggy, lumpy, and unpredictable great outdoors. 

Is Donald Trump considering wavering on a key campaign promise?

That's what several news reports published over the weekend suggest. And while the Trump campaign issued a statement denying any shift on immigration policy, top surrogates and campaign operatives hinted that a change just might be on its way.

The issue: what to do with the estimated 11 million immigrants already living in the United States illegally.
