New Hampshire foreclosure numbers from July are up from the previous year.
New Hampshire had 269 foreclosures in July. That’s up 13 percent from July of last year. However, it’s a decrease compared to the month before. In fact, it’s the third monthly decline in a row so far this year. The numbers come from the Mortgage Bankers Association’s National Delinquency Survey.
“Even though it’s higher than last July, it’s still more on a steady downward curve.”

New Hampshire’s House and Senate have together passed two separate bills legalizing medical marijuana. Governor Lynch vetoed both. Now, as gubernatorial candidates vie to fill his seat, a medical marijuana bill could finally make it past the governor’s desk.
To date, 17 states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana. In 2009, President Obama encouraged federal prosecutors to respect these states’ laws – despite the fact that the substance is illegal on a federal level.

Distance runner Guor Marial has called New Hampshire his home for 11 years. But after qualifying for the London Olympics, he had no home country to represent. The refugee isn’t a U.S. citizen, and couldn’t run for South Sudan. The world’s newest country wasn’t sending a team.

Mosquitoes get West Nile Virus from birds, and then they give it to us. It’s Ryan Naujoks's job to stop that. He works for Dragon Mosquito Control, a private company that municipalities like Derry hire to spray insecticides.
"I’m at Rider Field right now, and everything is locked up," Naujoks says over the phone. "Rider Field…"
Eventually, someone from the Town of Derry comes and unlocks the gates. Naujoks fires up the sprayer.
The truck makes a lap around the field emitting a small puff of white smoke.
