    New Hampshire to Hold Meetings Across State on Mental Health

    The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services says it will conduct meetings across the state to get public input on a 10-year mental health plan.

    The department's director Julianne Carbin said Thursday that the development of the plan has been underway since the beginning of the year. New Hampshire Public Radio reports a draft report of the plan is expected by mid-October.

    Children's Behavioral Health Collaborative Coordinator Rebecca Whitley says the last 10-year plan issued in 2008 didn't address children, something that she feels should change with this plan.

    Carbin says the draft plan will be published in time for a final public meeting in Concord in October.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
