New Hampshire apples are already ripe, about two weeks ahead of schedule. They're available at farm stands and farmers' markets, but that doesn't mean you can head to the orchards to pick them yourself – just yet.
The professional firefighters are one of several public sector unions to back Jackie Cilley in the democratic primary. At a firehouse in Manchester, Cilley said the state needs to do better by public employees, and to do that, she says, will require more than simply winning the concern office.

Speaking in the sweltering gymnasium of Windham High School, Mr. Obama told a crowd of 2300 that the policies of Mitt Romney and Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan would benefit the rich and hurt the middle class. Mr. Obama argued that under the budget supported by Ryan, Romney would pay less than 1 percent of his income in taxes. The President also said Romney’s plans would raise taxes on middle class families by $2000 a year.
New Hampshire athlete Victoria Arlen headed to Europe Wednesday in preparation for the Paralympics on August 29.
Victoria Arlen’s chances at a medal are pretty good. The Exeter High school senior broke two world records for competitive swimming at the Paralympics trial this past June. Arlen was an avid swimmer before an undiagnosed spinal inflammation put her in a vegetative state at age 11, leaving her paralyzed from the waist down.
Only three years after waking from her coma she broke records in the 100 and 400-meter freestyle, securing her place on the U.S. team.
