Labor Day was one of the last days customers had to move their stuff out of Extra Space Storage, a self-storage facility in Manchester.
The Manchester mill building that contained the storage company was purchased a developer called Brady-Sullivan, which has plans to convert the building into luxury condos. The closure came a lot earlier than expected, however, after lead dust was detected in the storage units in January during renovations on the upper floors.
For some Granite Staters the loon represents the state in a very emotional way, and supporters of the bird were out in force on Tuesday, defending a bill that would ban lead fishing gear. The bill was being heard by the House Fish and Game Committee, and attendees over-flowed out the door of a double capacity hearing room.
