A memorial has been set up for Joshua Savyon on the front steps of the Manchester YWCA. Police say Muni Savyon shot and killed his 9-year-old son during a supervised visitation at the center on Sunday. He then killed himself.
Copper Cannon Camp is tucked away in Franconia Notch on 128 acres of White Mountain National Forest. In some ways a typical overnight camp with sing-a-longs at night and archery during the day, Copper Cannon is unusual in one respect. As Sean Hurley reports, it's one of only a handful of co-ed camps in the country that's absolutely free for kids of low income families.

Unlike maple sugaring or beekeeping, wine making is not a typical agricultural pastime in New Hampshire.
But new techniques in viticulture, along with classic Yankee persistence, are making local wine production a larger part of New Hampshire’s agricultural mix.

Funeral services for a conservation officer who died last week drew hundreds to North Conway on Saturday. Police, firefighters, the governor, state officials and others went to celebrate the life of Sgt. Brian Abrams.
Green trucks fill the parking around the Congregational Church in North Conway.
Just outside the church door a row of 30 men stand at attention.
Each man wears a red jacket, green pants tucked into their boots, a Stetson and white gloves.
