New Hampshire officials are issuing a thin ice warning for area ponds after a Concord city worker rescued a man from a pond in a city park.
On Christmas Eve, Concord Parks and Recreation employee Tom Wright noticed a young man struggling in vain to get out of the icy waters of a pond in White Park.
Officials say the man went out on the icy to rescue his dog, which had fallen through about 30 feet from shore. He managed to get his dog back onto the ice but couldn't pull himself up or break a path through the ice.
Wright ran into the pond and pulled the man to safety.
Utah has one. Colorado does too. And now New Hampshire has its very own Ice Castle open to the public at Loon Mountain. It's taken Mother Nature and 20 workers about a month to turn tons of homemade icicles into a glacial maze of frozen caverns and clear blue coliseums. NHPR's Sean Hurley recently took a tour of the nearly completed castle and sends us this report.

US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, is the investigative arm of the US Department of Homeland Security. The purpose of ICE is to enforce federal laws governing border control, customs, trade and immigration. As part of that mission, the agency conducts crackdowns on businesses who hire illegal workers. In the past two years, the agency has made a shift in its actions, directing more resources on identifying and fining employers rather than large scale raids on employees.
