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.

Some Manchester aldermen are pushing back on a decision by Mayor Ted Gatsas to close a park to the public during school hours.
The decision to erect signs at Bronstein Park warning the public that the park is off limits during school hours came a week after a spike in spice-related overdoses, some of which occurred at the park. Gatsas argues the park is city property meant for use by Central High School. But some aldermen, like Garth Corriveau, say the unilateral decision may have unforeseen consequences.

The company’s annual report, which Brown signed off on, says it plans to grow in the US market by “using low cost manufacturing bases, such as China and Mexico.”

The Mass was attended by Foley's parents and hundreds of others.
Every kid knows there’s something magical about being in a tree house.
Sure, you can play “house” anywhere and pretend to be living out the joys and jobs of adulthood. But in a tree house, you’re 10, 15, or 20 feet up in the air, far above any adults telling you how do to things. It’s like playing house and being a superhero, all the same time.
And that feeling is one you can never forget, Laconia’s Randy Bartlett discovered.
