The sale of the Balsams in Dixville Notch is a mixed event for the North Country, says reporter Chris Jensen. Planned renovations mean hundreds of workers will be out of work for up to 18 months, but it could mean increased tourism in the long term.

There's been plenty of news in New Hampshire's North Country this year, from the Gorham mill to the Berlin prison, from the towers proposed for Northern Pass to the tragedy of Celina Cass.

NHPR’s Chris Jensen talks with All Things Considered host Brady Carlson about the big North Country stories of 2011.
