MANCHESTER, NH – This week’s top stories were, no surprise, crime-related, from the tragic stabbing death at Drynk night club to a story about how off-duty Manchester Police Capt. Jame Soucy followed an erratic driver to a parking lot where she was charged for allegedly driving under the influence of heroin.

But in the spirit of a more well-rounded view of things, we’ve gone a little deeper than usual into our week’s worth of top-read stories, to remind you that things like Star Wars Day, Miss New Hampshire and NH’s presidential politics are also important to our readers. News of a $1.1 million house in Bedford for sale, belonging to popular NH WWE star Triple H also got a lot of clicks, as did the weekly fishing report and Free Fishing Day announcement, from NH Fish & Game, plus a story about Narcan legislation.

On an exciting note, thanks to your loyal readership, Manchester Ink Link is fast approaching a new milestone: 500,000 page views! We’ll be celebrating that when we get there, probably within the next few weeks, with a public meet-and-greet of some sort, probably involving free coffee. Stay tuned.

Please take some time to check out stories of interest below for this week. Keep reading, keep sharing, so we can continue to bring you a true variety of news as your only independent daily news source in the city (and the state, for that matter.)
