    After the New Hampshire Division of Motor Vehicles tried to make a woman turn in her potty-humored vanity license plates, New Hampshire governor Chris Sununu stepped in to personally overturn the decision and let her keep it. Wendy Auger, a bartender in Rochester, has had plates reading "PB4UGO" for 15 years. But last week, she received a recall notice from the DMV, ordering her exchange them for a standard license plate or another vanity plate.

    Donald Trump channeled his inner James Carville last night in New Hampshire, hammering on the economy as his best argument for re-election. “Love me or hate me,” Trump told the crowd that was clearly in the first camp, “you’ve got to vote for me” to keep the economy growing. Nearly thirty years after Carville’s famous admonition to Bill Clinton’s campaign team in Little Rock, it’s still the economy, stupid: President Trump doubled down on his economic argument for re-election on Thursday night amid increasing concerns about a recession, declaring that even Americans who hate him “have no choice” but...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. — Former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski leads the 2020 Republican U.S. Senate field in a new poll conducted this week by one of the president’s top pollsters and released by a friend and ally of Lewandowski. The poll of 400 likely Republican Senate primary voters was conducted by Trump campaign pollsters Tony Fabrizio, David Lee and Travis Tunis for David Bossie, the president of the Citizens United advocacy group who co-authored two books about Trump with Lewandowski. It showed prospective candidate Lewandowski as the choice of 30 percent of those surveyed, with retired Brig. Gen. Donald...

    To the Editor: As a Representative in New Hampshire’s legislature, I hear from my neighbors every day about the challenges their families face. The time for us to elect a new president is fast approaching, and with this in mind, I believe no candidate is better qualified to address the concerns of the nation and New Hampshire than Elizabeth Warren. I am endorsing Elizabeth for many reasons, but especially because of her Universal Child Care plan. Child care and education have always been important to me, and I know firsthand that the scarcity and cost of high-quality child care is...

    EPPING — High school freshman Ciretta MacKenzie didn’t think it would be a problem if she wore her President Trump T-shirt on Monday. After all, it was a day when students were encouraged to celebrate American pride by showing off their red, white and blue. “I thought for America Day it would be OK and there wouldn’t be an issue,” said Ciretta, who turns 15 next week. But the shirt, which said “Trump” and “Make America Great Again” across the front, resulted in her being called to the principal’s office. Ciretta said she was told by Epping High School Principal...

    A former IT aide to New Hampshire Democratic Sen. Maggie Hassan mounted an “extraordinarily extensive data-theft scheme” against the office, the culprit’s plea agreement states. The plot included the installation of tiny “keylogging” devices that picked up every keystroke. Between July and October 2018, former IT aide Jackson Cosko worked with an unnamed accomplice, a then-current Hassan employee, who repeatedly lent him a key that he used to enter the office at night and who allegedly tried to destroy evidence for him. Cosko accepted responsibility for the events revealed by federal prosecutors in court Friday. A statement of facts that...

    CONCORD -- New Hampshire residents will face expanded background checks and a seven-day waiting period for gun purchases if a pair of bills passed in the House of Representatives become law. The House voted Tuesday to expand background checks for private gun sales and transfers, as well as add a seven-day waiting period before a sale can be completed. The bill, which passed on a 203-148 vote, would close a loophole in the current New Hampshire law that allows for private firearm transactions to take place at gun shows without a background check.

    But what are they going to do with all the T-shirts they made up? The owner of a soon-to-be-opening French-Vietnamese restaurant in New Hampshire is set to meet with the city manager of Keene following concerns that the eatery's name sounds like a profane phrase. Pho Keene Great, which is not scheduled to open until March, had already displayed a small sign prominently featuring the name, which is a play on both the Vietnamese dish pho (pronounced "fuh") and the name of the town (Keene).
  • Judge bars New Hampshire proof of residency requirement for new voters

    10/22/2018 7:06:55 PM PDT · by bryan999 · 31 replies
    (Reuters) - A New Hampshire judge on Monday put on hold a law requiring some voters to present proof of residency when they register, saying it would lengthen lines at polling places and make it difficult for students, disabled voters and others to cast ballots. The temporary injunction against the Republican-backed law comes two weeks before U.S. Congressional elections that will determine whether opposition Democrats or U.S. President Donald Trump’s Republicans retain full control of the federal government’s legislative branch. The measure, which passed largely along party lines and went into effect last year, required those seeking to register within...

    A 4-year-old Manchester boy is being called a hero after his grandmother stopped breathing on Tuesday and he called 911. Max Velez is being credited with saving her life, and this week, he was recognized for his actions. “I'm so proud because he's really shy, and I guess he was calm the whole situation,” said Fallon Clarke, Max’s mother. While Clarke was at work, he was home with his grandmother when she had a medical emergency. “Really extreme – she couldn't breathe,” Clarke said. “She couldn't get up, so really, Max handled the whole situation, they said.” Max said he...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. — Catalina Celentano used to hold training sessions for hospital workers in Lynn, Mass., to familiarize them with the cultures of patients from Cambodia, Russia and the Dominican Republic. When she moved to New Hampshire, she suddenly found herself in an ethnic vacuum. “I went from being able to speak Spanish every day to not speaking Spanish at all because there wasn’t anybody to speak Spanish to,” said Mrs. Celentano, who was born in Colombia to a Colombian mother and Hungarian father. “The only person I spoke Spanish with was a cleaning lady and she moved back to...

    A fiercely contested bill to make residency a condition of voting in New Hampshire was determined by the state Supreme Court to be constitutional Thursday, in a major ruling that clears its approval by Gov. Chris Sununu. In a 3-2 ruling, the court found that the bill, House Bill 1264, is not a burden on the right to vote, but rather a means to better organize state laws “in order to place voters and residents on equal footing as New Hampshire citizens.” The court’s decision, which came without warning, now sets up a high-stakes choice for Sununu. On Thursday afternoon,...

    The Donald Trump administration approved New Hampshire’s waiver, becoming the fourth state to implement work requirements for Medicaid. New Hampshire Republican Gov. Chris Sununu said in a statement on Monday: Work requirements help lift able-bodied individuals out of poverty by empowering them with the dignity of work and self-reliability while also allowing states to control the costs of their Medicaid programs. They help people gain the skills necessary for long-term independence and success. Sununu added, “Today’s announcement by CMS authorizing New Hampshire’s Medicaid work requirements is a transformative step towards a more thriving workforce.” New Hampshire became the fourth state...

    Democrat Phil Spagnuolo won a special election in New Hampshire's Belknap County District 3 on Tuesday night 968-841 (54%-46%). It is the 38th state legislative flip from Democrat to Republican since President Trump's inauguration. The contest for this state House race pitted Spagnuolo, a substance abuse recovery coach, against Republican Les Cartier, a former employee at the state fire marshal's office. The seat was left open after the death of Republican State Rep. Donald Flanders last September. Donald Trump won the district by a sizable 54-41 margin in 2016, four years after Barack Obama carried it by just one point,...

    A Merrimack County jury awarded three Manchester-area businessmen $274.5 million in their lawsuit against mortgage kingpin Michael Gill, who accused them of drug dealing and other crimes on prominent electronic billboards and social media viewed by millions. Steve Gordon, an attorney who represented AutoFair owner Andy Crews, Manchester developer Dick Anagnost and Primary Bank founder William Greiner, said it is believed to be the largest personal injury verdict in New Hampshire. "The bully has finally been punched in the mouth, which is what we wanted to do for a long time," Crews said at a press conference outside the Merrimack...
