Paul Butler is a former football player himself, but says the evidence now shows the game is too dangerous for young people and their developing brains.  Butler called for a ban on the sport in his hometown.  But many say his concerns go overboard and that it’s a hard sell to interfere with America’s second favorite pastime.  We'll hear from both sides of this debate.

What the Fiscal Cliff Could Mean for NH

Now that the elections are over, It’s now the number one topic on Capitol Hill. If the parties can’t agree on debt reduction, we’ll see tax increases and spending cuts that many predict could slide us into recession. In New Hampshire, thousands of jobs are said to be on the line. We’ll talk about efforts to avoid this, why some say going over the cliff may not be as damaging as feared and what each scenario could mean for the Granite State.

This follows a rancorous period of governing and campaigning …attack ads, finger pointing and name calling. So, how do we move on from here?  Today we'll talk with party members and see if we can all 'get along'.
