New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen is the lead author on a letter to the United Nations in support of the Paris climate accords. The UN's climate change convention is currently meeting in Spain to discuss that agreement.

In their letter, Shaheen and 28 other senators say they support and are working on a U.S. government response to climate change, even "in a moment where the commitment of the United States to address climate change seems threadbare."

When Sam Searles was a kid, she and her family visited Santa's Village and Story Land every summer. Both of these North Country amusement parks have been attracting visitors since the 1950's, even before Disney Land opened its doors.

Last summer, Story Land threw "Nostalgia Night," an event that offered the chance for adults to revisit their childhood memories. Sam returned to both parks and reflected on what it means to pursue the past.

The spending plan also says the military must phase out use of PFAS-based firefighting foam, which has contaminated drinking water at hundreds of sites including the former Pease Air Force Base.
