    New York Post ^ | May 25, 2015 | Marisa Schultz
    Ignoring the polls and pundits, former New York Gov. George Pataki plans to announce Thursday that he’s joining the crowded Republican field for president. The three-term governor will unveil his candidacy in Exeter, N.H., – which claims the birthplace of the Republican Party – and join a group of contenders who are inching toward the 20 mark. Skeptics abound about Pataki’s chances.
  • RI:Exeter recall election opponents far outspent gun-rights supporters

    02/14/2014 6:07:23 AM PST · by marktwain · 5 replies ^ | 3 February, 2014 | JOHN HILL
    A month and a half after the unsuccessful effort to oust four Exeter Town Council members, financial reports filed by both sides show that in the weeks leading up to the recall vote, the firearms-rights supporters who mounted the effort were badly outgunned in terms of campaign cash. According to contribution and spending reports filed by We The People/Rhode Island Firearms League, the Exeter Democratic Town Committee and Save Exeter, the council members’ own political action committee, the anti-recall forces were able to outspend We the People by a better than 2-to-1 ratio in the 10 weeks leading up to...

     “I didn’t realize that so many people here in our corner of Rhode Island were so passionate about guns,” a nonplussed Calvin Ellis told the Wall Street Journal. Bless his heart. It’s safe to say, though, that he his three fellow Exeter town council members have now been thoroughly educated on that matter. That’s because, as RF relayed, 80% of the town council – Ellis included – stand to lose their jobs in a recall election today because they voted to transfer their shall-issue concealed carry licensing authority to the state’s may-issue attorney general. As resident Letitia Davis told, ”Our rights are...

    A SOLDIER was attacked in an Exeter underpass by a gang who chanted “Lee Rigby” as they kicked him on the floor. The 18-year-old, known as Alexander, has been a member of the Coldstream Guards for six months.

After a period of about two minutes he managed to escape after fighting off but fear his injuries could have been a lot worse. The incident happened at just before 2pm on Wednesday...

    The New Hampshire hospital lab technician indicted last week for infecting 31 people with Hepatitis C might have infected "tens of thousands" of patients in at least 13 hospitals, ABC News has learned. David Kwiatkowski, a former lab technician at Exeter Hospital in New Hampshire, had allegedly been stealing the Fentanyl syringes intended for patients, injecting his own arm and then refilling those empty syringes with another liquid-like saline, according to a statement from the United States Attorney's Office in New Hampshire. Since Kwiatkowski tested positive for Hepatitis C in June 2010, he passed it on to the hospital patients...

    ­­The Academy will no longer host blood drives through the Red Cross, whose ban on blood donations from men who have had sex with other men was found to be inconsistent with the Academy’s anti-discrimination policy, Principal Tom Hassan decided this week. The FDA policy has been in place since 1977. Gay men are more likely to transmit HIV through blood donations, an FDA representative said. An Academy employee brought the clashing policies to the attention of Dean of Faculty Kathleen Curwen, Director of Human Resources Kate Anatone and Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Chris Wejchert. The Academy was unaware of...

    Exeter archaeologists believe they have found a second Roman fort on a development site in the city. As the Echo has already reported, a team of city archaeologists has unearthed a previously unknown fort on the site of the former St Loye's campus off Topsham Road. Archaeologists said the original discovery was set to rewrite Exeter's early history. Now the excavations have revealed what the experts believe could be a second fort, built on top of the first... Suspicions that there was a fort on the site arose three years ago during trial trenching. Excavations before the site was developed...

    WILKES-BARRE – An Exeter man was sentenced Tuesday to eight to 16 years in state prison on charges he set fire to his home. The fire set off an explosion that damaged 55 homes, three businesses, an elementary school and left two 13-year-old girls injured. Luzerne County Court Judge Tina Polachek Gartley sentenced David Lamoreaux, 43, of Penn Avenue, on three felony counts, including two charges of arson and one charge of causing a catastrophe. “I truly am sorry,” Lamoreaux said Tuesday. “I’m not that kind of person at all … I’m sorry.” Lamoreaux pleaded guilty to the charges in...

    seacoastonline ^ | September 04, 2009 | Barbara Rimkunas
    Thanks to a highly publicized UFO sighting in 1965, Exeter is known as the "UFO Capital of New England." Should we believe in UFOs, or are they just nonsense? The idea of "belief" shouldn't really be part of the question. A UFO, after all, is an "Unidentified Flying Object" — "unidentified" being the operative word. It's when we begin to interpret what the object is that we get into trouble. As soon as it's called an alien spacecraft it becomes an "Identified Flying Object," then you have to start talking about "belief." And in spite of all the sightings and...

    EXETER – Five days before David Lamoreaux’s home was destroyed in an explosion on Saturday, police allege that his wife and another man assaulted him Deborah Lamoreaux, 45, and Christopher Pack, 45, of Market Street, Pittston, were charged Monday with assaulting David Lamoreaux in the couple’s home at 58 Penn Ave. on July 27. Police said that after David Lamoreaux was attacked, he crawled outside for help, screaming “They’re trying to kill me,” according to arrest records.

    EXETER - A massive explosion leveled a home and injured two men in the borough Saturday afternoon, rocking homes and businesses throughout the neighborhood and in nearby communities. Exeter police labeled their probe into the blast at 58 Penn Ave. a "criminal investigation," but would not release further details on the cause Saturday night. A bystander and a man in the garage area at the rear of the home were injured and taken to the hospital for treatment. Their conditions were not immediately available Saturday night.

    Extremists are winning the battle for the hearts and minds of Britain's young Muslims, a disturbing police report warns. Increasing numbers have become so alienated from mainstream society that they could even lend their support to jihadi terrorism, the study claims. While most reject violence, many distrust police and are reluctant to inform on extremists. The report was commissioned by the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) after last year's failed bomb attacks in London's West End and at Glasgow Airport. It is to be discussed at Acpo's annual conference this week. In the most comprehensive research of its kind...

    Christians take stand against university By Jonathan Petre, Religion Correspondent Last Updated: 4:01am BST 20/08/2007 A Christian student society is going to the High Court to overturn a ruling requiring it to admit non-Christians. The Christian Union at Exeter said the ruling by an independent adjudicator would mean Muslims or atheists could become its leaders. Lord Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, is backing the organisation. His successor, Dr Rowan Williams, has criticised the "suppression" of Christian groups on campuses. The 350-strong Union was told by the Students' Guild, which regulates student bodies, last year that it may lose its...

Rowan of Exeter won the Democratic nomination for the New Hampshire House of Representatives in District 13 which includes Exeter, Stratham and North Hampton. Rep.

He was sanctioned by the medical board for having a sexual relationship with a patient. He appealed the decision to the New Hampshire Supreme Court, claiming the board had no right to sanction him. Dr. Rowan...

The incident began around 5 p.m. Wednesday when a man with a handgun entered the bank as it was closing and demanded money. When he realized the alarm had been triggered, he took eight customers and staff hostage, CBS reported.

    A RETIRED social worker was jailed yesterday for seven days for refusing to pay a £53.71 increase in her council tax. Sylvia Hardy, a 73-year-old spinster, had refused all offers of help from well-wishers. She was making a stand in the hope of forcing the Government to reconsider an unjust tax, she said. Bag in hand, she marched to the court from her Exeter home accompanied by a small crowd of banner-waving supporters. Hundreds more were waiting to wave her off. Hardy, only the second council tax protester to be jailed, was compared by supporters to Emily Pankhurst, the...

    EXETER - There was something odd in the sky last week, something that caused a Navy veteran with 10,000 hours of flight experience to have his own close encounter. The former flight engineer, who wished to be identified only as "David," said of the experience, "this was like nothing I’ve ever seen before." What the retired Navy chief petty officer said he saw last Wednesday could only be classified as a UFO, an unidentified flying object. It was a bright and sunny afternoon, about 3:15 p.m., and David was outside preparing his lawnmower. He had filled the mower with gas,...

    EXETER (PA)– As people question why a police sergeant shot and killed a snapping turtle last week, a municipal police training commission recommends the sergeant be placed on administrative leave or administrative duty while an investigation is conducted. Police Chief John McNeil says that’s nonsense. “It’s like if an officer decides to shoot a deer hit by a car, it’s his decision.” McNeil, who was at a conference for the Police Chiefs Association in Valley Forge this week, said he does plan to review Sgt. Len Galli’s report but will not put him on administrative leave. “I was absent during...

    The periodic squabble over where the Republican Party began is mildly amusing. The national committee says the first official gathering of Republicans took place on July 6, 1854, in Jackson, Mich., about 80 miles from Detroit. Don't be so cheesy, says Ripon, Wis., which according to lore and a 2004 congressional resolution hosted the first gathering of Republicans on March 8, 1854. In a pig's eye, say the folks of Crawfordsville, Iowa, who claim their hamlet hosted a group of abolitionists on Feb. 23, 1854, who debated a campaign platform and nominated candidates who ran under the Republican banner in...

At one point in the pursuit, Exeter Officer Dion Fernandes fired a shot at the stolen Ford Bronco Sando was driving. The bullet shattered a window in the vehicle, but did not hit anyone. "They tried to shoot me and my girlfriend in the head," Sando said after being led away from his arraignment by police. He had been asked why he ran from police. But according to the affidavit of probable cause, numerous attempts were made to...
