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.
