Kentucky Senator Rand Paul has plans to endorse Republican Senate candidate Scott Brown this afternoon among college students at UNH. Last night, Paul addressed a similar demographic at an event in Manchester.
Before 150 or so young people brought together by GenOpp – a liberty-minded youth activism nonprofit – Rand Paul hammered away at issues many millenials say they care about: from the President’s power to declare war, to the NSA, to Guantanamo Bay:
Manchester Police have reported the seizure of more 11 pounds of synthetic marijuana known commonly as spice from a Manchester tattoo parlor. The drugs sold as incense had a retail value of more than $25,000.
The search warrant was executed at two Spider Bite locations two weeks ago as part of a months-long, multi-agency investigation that began well before a spate of overdoses that occurred in the middle of August.
Sgt. Brian O’Keefe says the department kept the seizures close to the chest since the investigation is still ongoing.
Gov. Maggie Hassan has directed flags to fly at half-staff, proclaiming it as a Day of Remembrance in honor of those killed by terrorists on Sept. 11, 13 years ago.
Hassan is participating in two remembrance ceremonies: Manchester's 9/11 remembrance ceremony at Henry McLaughlin Middle School and the American Legion Post 35 Global War on Terrorism Monument Unveiling and Rededication in Hampton on Thursday.
The New Hampshire Supreme Court is set to hear arguments that a man convicted of attempted murder in the 2012 shooting of a Manchester police officer should get a new trial because release of his booking photo tainted eyewitness identifications.
Myles Webster of Litchfield is serving 60 years to life in prison in the shooting of Officer Dan Doherty on March 21, 2012, as Doherty closed in on him during a foot chase.
Doherty, who suffered at least seven gunshot wounds to his legs and torso, returned to work nearly a year later after multiple surgeries.
Former BAE Systems CEO Walt Havenstein is the Republican nominee governor.
Walt Havenstein didn’t always run strong in this race but he won by nearly 20 points over Andrew Hemingway. He said voters in the general election will have a clear choice.
“The choice is going to be about the future of our state and whether or not we’re gonna maintain and stay in this economic stagnation or if we’re actually gonna take a bold course to change our economic outcome for the future prosperity of our state.”
A 39-year-old New Hampshire man who had been running and hiking with friends along the Appalachian Trail when he collapsed and died has been identified.
Chad Denning from New London had stopped breathing along the Beaver Brook Trail on Mt. Moosilauke in Benton after noon on Sunday. He had stopped to take in some views of the area after running and hiking for about four hours.
About 10,000 customers around the Concord area were without power for several hours Monday evening.
The city's main utility, Unitil, did not immediately provide a reason for the outage that hit shortly after 5 p.m. Monday, but later posted updates on their Twitter feed which indicated the blackout was caused by a pole fire that occurred at a substation.
Power was restored to all Capital Region customers shortly after 8 PM.
The Vermont Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing is shutting down later this month.
The center announced in the spring that its Austine School would not be opening for the 2015 school year. Its board had hoped to keep some of its programs operating this year, and to reopen the school in two years, but at an emergency meeting last week voted to completely shut down both the school and the center.
As former President of BAE Systems, Walt Havenstein led one of New Hampshire’s largest employers. That’s one reason top Republicans encouraged the millionaire business-man to get into the governor’s race. Havenstein has vastly outspent his Republican opponent but this race remains tight.
The turmoil at Market Basket actually dragged down U.S. jobs numbers last month.
In the August jobs report issued Friday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, “employment disruptions at a grocery store chain in New England” is cited as having an impact on food and beverage employment numbers nationwide.
