Lawyers for President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and his neighbors on Wednesday said they have resolved most of the issues related to a testy property dispute.

Glenn and Irene Schwartz countersued Lewandowski after he filed a $5 million lawsuit over access to a pond-front property in Windham, New Hampshire. Lewandowski accused the couple of blocking an easement granted to him so he could reach the tract while the couple said he threatened them. Court documents indicate Lewandowski is building a garage at the property alongside a cottage.

The Portsmouth Police Commission is putting together a group to study whether the city police department should start using body cameras or patrol car cameras.

The group will look at the cameras' costs and how other New England communities use them, either for trainings or in court.

Jim Splaine is a Portsmouth police commissioner, and he proposed this review group last month.  He says, getting body cameras might just be a matter of time.

Major Joyce Craig ordered an internal audit into the practice of so-called "chief days" this summer. Those are paid days off for police personnel that do not count toward vacation time.

 

The audit found that 466 "chief days" had been awarded since 2009, but it did not reveal the amount of money it cost the city.

The New Hampshire Preservation Alliance announced its "Seven to Save" properties Tuesday. The annual register highlights historic places in the state that are in danger of disappearing due to neglect, demolition and other factors.

 

"This year we're touting it as our most diverse list and certainly that involves its age,” says Andrew Cushing, Field Service Representative with the Alliance. “We have buildings from the 1790s all the way up to the 1940s."
