MANCHESTER, NH – News is news – bad guys getting arrested, presidential politics, even the weather sometimes, and last week was no exception. The stories that resulted in 31,386 clicks to Manchester Ink Link run the gamut.
Granite Hammer bust was the top news story of the week, and it’s no wonder in a city that has been besieged by heroin use and abuse. Also among the top stories: random gunfire, an unfortunate outcome in Nashua during torrential rain, 20 drug dealers indicted on federal charged, and a woman charged with reckless driving whose mugshot brought in readers from around the country (with a shout out from The Official Dave Barry Blog).
But we also brought you some heartwarming, informative and uplifting news – Manchester
