Brentwood Native's First Tour De France

A New Hampshire native will be among the pro cyclists setting out on the Tour de France this weekend.   

Thirty year old Brentwood resident Teddy King arrived late to cycling – compared to other pros, at least.  He was already in college at Middlebury, when he took up the sport. But now, his mom Margie King says, he’s hit the big time:

Oh my gosh, yes, Teddy has raced at least two major tours in Europe, two Giro D’Italias, which are the same length, same distance, but they just don’t have the same cache that the Tour de France has.

As expected, Governor Maggie Hassan signed the state's next two-year budget into law Friday.

The $10.7 billion budget goes into effect Monday and covers Fiscal Years 2014 and 2015.

Hassan said the budget reverses many of the deep cuts from the state's last budget and sets the foundation for the state's economic future.

While the budget does not include the casino revenue Hassan initially wanted, it restores cuts to higher education, funds the construction of a new women's prison, and increases funding for programs for the disabled and mentally ill.

Seacoast Farm-a-Q Brings Farms To Forks This Sunday

Twelve chefs are converging on the Brandmore Farm in Rollinsford this Sunday for a Farm-a-Q, a local food BBQ open to the public. 

Portsmouth chef and restaurateur, Evan Mallett, organizes the event.  He says all of the food is grown locally.

We try to unite chefs, farmers and consumers around heirloom vegetables, heritage breed animals, and now endangered fisheries, too.

The event raises funds for two organizations: Slow Food Seacoast and Heirloom Harvest. The groups also hold an annual high-end multi-course barn dinner.

The University System of New Hampshire Board of Trustees voted Friday to freeze tuition for in-state students for the next two years.

The move comes after lawmakers agreed to substantially restore funding cuts made to the system in the last budget.

The tuition freeze for in-state students marks the first time in 25 years the cost of attending University System of New Hampshire schools will not rise.

After the Legislature cut support for higher education in half in the last budget, tuition rose by 9 percent in 2011 and by another 6 percent last year.

Marsupial On The Move

New Hampshire is home to the Virginia opossum, our country's one-and-only marsupial.

As a marsupial, an opossum's development takes place ex utero in the mother's pouch instead of in utero, as placental mammals do.

Opossums are a backyard species, but because they are nocturnal, casual sightings are rare. More often, they will be seen as roadkill--an unfortunate consequence of being an urban, slow-moving animal.
