Coverage of New Hampshire from New England Public Radio, NPR, and other NPR stations.

Over the first weekend in April, U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested 20 people for entering the country illegally in Vermont, New Hampshire and New York.

A bill that would abolish the death penalty in New Hampshire has cleared both the House and Senate, but Governor Chris Sununu has promised to veto the measure. Sununu says he's standing with law enforcement in his promise to veto.

A former New Hampshire Supreme Court chief justice is visiting schools in New England to talk about the darkest time in his life. Usually he ends up hearing from students about some of their dark times, too.

The former justice, John Broderick, wants to encourage people to talk about mental illness, so he tells the story of his oldest son.

“He was a really talented artist and so he spent a lot of time in his room with the door closed, at his desk, drawing. Today I would describe it as withdrawing,” Broderick says.

Around noon on Nov. 9 of last year, a black Chevy Suburban pulled up to a New Hampshire liquor store. The driver, a 46-year-old Queens, New York, resident named Juncheng Chen, bought some booze, then headed off to another liquor store to make another purchase.

Then another, then another.

In total, Chen bought liquor at six different New Hampshire stores that afternoon.

Energy leaders from around New England met in Manchester Friday to brainstorm how to keep the region’s lights on at a reasonable price long-term.
