MANCHESTER, NH — Crime doesn’t pay, but it sure brings the clicks, and this week was no different. Our top story was an update on Manchester Police Department’s Operation Granite Hammer, which has had more than 10,000 views, and continues to be our top daily story.

But good news prevails, as the No. 2 and 3 stories both have a positive vibe — New Hampshire businessman Alex Ray has issued a fundraising challenge to pay for more treatment and recovery services in the way of beds to the Granite State; and our own Queen City Cupcakes

was the $10,000 winner in a new Food Network competition.

After that, it’s mostly crime and news that brought viewers to our site — with the exception of one story, a tribute to local cable TV personality Howard McCarthy, who died Thursday night.
