A New Hampshire Year In Review



Published:

Many of New Hampshire’s daily newspapers have taken the annual look at 2007’s top stories, which include: April flooding knocking out roads and bridges, then later a wave of presidential candidates washing over the state as the primary season heated up, the replacement of embattled Nashua school superintendent Julia Earl, increased home foreclosures, a tax cap in Dover, the death of Irish music legend Tommy Makem, the election of Nashua’s first female mayor, the approval of civil unions for same-sex couples and the Ed and Elaine Brown stories, to name a few. The New Hampshire bureau of The Associated Press also chose a top ten story list, which also includes a statewide restaurant smoking ban, a deadly multiple shooting in a Conway store, and congressional hopeful Gary Dodds being charged for faking a car crash. You can find the whole AP list on the NashuaTelegraph.com Web site.
