N.H. news in brief
Syrup Season
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – New Hampshire’s maple syrup season may be a record-breaker.

The state Maple Producers Association said many producers broke records in an encouraging turnaround from last year’s disappointing season.

The final figures aren’t in yet, but the group said it expects farmers made more than 75,000 gallons of syrup this season. Last year they produced about 57,000 gallons.

Conway Shooting


CONWAY, N.H. (AP) – A Maine man was wounded and a Conway man arrested after a shooting Tuesday night.

Police said James Behan, 28, of Denmark, Maine, was shot in the chest. He was in stable condition after surgery.

Police arrested Christopher Frost, 28, of Conway. He’s charged with assault and reckless conduct. The shooting happened at Frost’s address.

Health Plan Scam


CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – State officials are warning residents about a health plan scam.

Attorney General Peter Heed and Insurance Commissioner Roger Sevigny say they’ve noticed an increase in potentially misleading or deceptive ads for discount health insurance. Sevigny said the programs are not insurance policies because all they offer is the possibility of some sort of discount. Customers still have to pay their medical bills.

They say the warning signs include claims of extremely broad coverage, that everyone is eligible to enroll and that automatic payment is required through a credit card or checking account.
