BOSTON (AP) — A state review has found no "serious wrongdoing" by former early education commissioner Sherri Killins, who participated in an internship outside of her state job.
But Education Secretary Matt Malone says some administrative procedures apparently were not followed.
Killins stepped down from her post earlier this week amid questions about whether her participation in the school superintendent training program, which required her to spend 300 hours in the town of Ware, was distracting from her ability to perform her nearly $200,000-a-year state job.
MANCHESTER, Conn. (AP) — Manchester police say the Manchester Community College campus has been cleared after officers searched campus buildings for several hours when a student reported seeing a man with what she believed to be a gun in his waistband.
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo denies he was close to approving limited hydrofracking for natural gas last month before talking with environmental lawyer Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
Cuomo says an Associated Press report citing state officials and an interview with Kennedy was wrong. State officials close to Cuomo and Kennedy had said Cuomo was near a decision last month to order limited drilling.
GROTON, Conn. (July 22, 2009) Culinary Specialist 1st Class Joseph Appold hugs his 1-year-old son Kameron upon the return of the Virginia-class attack submarine USS New Hampshire (SSN 778) to Submarine Base New London. New Hampshire returned from her maiden deployment and was the first Virginia-class submarine to be deployed to the U.S. European Command area of responsibility.
BOSTON (AP) — The Pentagon says New Hampshire could be facing $5.8 million in Defense Department civilian payroll cuts if automatic government spending cuts kick in March 1.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told Congress on Wednesday that if a budget deal isn't reached, he may have to shorten the workweek for the "vast majority" of the Defense Department's 800,000 civilian workers. They'd lose one day of work per week, or 20 percent of their pay, for up to 22 weeks, probably starting in late April.
