We'll tackle couplets, stanzas, limericks, sonnets, odes, dirges; free or rhyming verse of any meter. From the epic to the cursory, from the aggressive to the consolatory, we’re all about poetry today.
The Granite United Way's 2-1-1 New Hampshire service is a directory assistance of services available in the state. It puts those in need in touch with the services that can help.
Cassie called 2-1-1 for help with disability rights when she ran into trouble with her housing arrangement. Her landlord had issued an eviction notice after she acquired a dog, because her lease forbids pets from the building. But Cassie's dog isn't a pet; she's a psychiatric service dog that provided therapeutic assistance.
Oral arguments were heard Friday in a lawsuit which will determine if the state’s new education tax credit is constitutional. The state argues that for the tax credit to be considered unconstitutional, the judge has to consider first if directing money through a tax credit is the same as spending money in the budget. Next the judge will have to determine if because some parents use that money to send their kids to religious schools, does that violate the state’s constitution?
Congress passed a bill to prevent traffic controller furloughs by granting $253 million to the Federal Aviation Administration. And it may also keep the contract towers slated for closure, like the one in Nashua, running through the end of the year.
A New Hampshire man convicted of hacking to death a woman and maiming her daughter in a 2009 home invasion in Mont Vernon has been sentenced once again to life in prison without parole, plus 76 years.
Steven Spader was required to be re-sentenced under a U.S. Supreme Court ruling involving life sentences for people under the age of 18. He was a month shy of turning 18 when he killed Kimberly Cates in 2009, but in a recent letter to the court said he did not want a reduced sentence.
New Hampshire is already small, but for artist Sue Anne Bottomley, everyone's practically a neighbor.
Or they are since the New London woman spent the last two years visiting each town with the goal of drawing pictures of all of them. Bottomley has produced a blog called Colorful Journey where she displays her drawings and tells each town's tales.
Bouncing beside her grandpa down rutted dirt roads in his old Chevy pickup truck, a 5-year-old, Sue Anne Bottomley discovered New Hampshire.
A lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the controversial Education Tax Credit will be heard today in Strafford County Superior Court. The law was passed last year by Republicans seeking to create more avenues for educational choice. But Democrats say it saps resources from Public schools and have targeted the law for repeal.
Morning Edition host Rick Ganley spoke with NHPR Education Reporter, Sam Evans-Brown about the lawsuit.
One of the rituals I shared with my children when they were growing up was stalking woodcocks during their spring courtship display. I guess I was sort of emulating a hero of mine named Aldo Leopold.
At twilight on April evenings, the woodcocks perform what naturalist Aldo Leopold described as "The Sky Dance" in an essay of the same title from his book A Sand Country Almanac, it's a sort of Bible for conservationists.
Testimony turned emotional today as a House subcommittee considered the social costs of allowing a casino in New Hampshire. Most of the comments focused on studies of gambling behavior and public policy. The exception was Mell Brooks, of Littleton. He discussed his five years as a restaurant owner in Oregon, where he was allowed to have five video slot machines.
Since 2006 the Suncook River has been on a different course: it jumped its bank in the Mother’s Day flood, and the state has been trying to stabilize it ever since. Now as part of a recent fine for filling wetlands, a gravel company will give the project 8,000 tons of stone for the project. But this is only part of a continuing effort to live next to a changing river.
