Autumn in New Hampshire is a wonderful time to watch and observe some easily recognizable stages of natural cycles: hawks migrating, leaves changing color…bears fattening up as they get ready to hibernate.

But while we tend to think of cycles as a circular, repeatable pattern, unfolding year after year-- we should note that there are varying degrees of “cyclical” activity that can be quite complicated.

The main reason for this?

In March, a lunchroom employee named Bonnie Kimball lost her job at Mascoma Valley Regional High School.

Her employer, a company called Cafe Services, based in Manchester, fired her for providing lunch to a student who had no money in their account.

The story is getting a lot of attention around the state and reporter Tim Camerato broke the story in the Valley News. He spoke with NHPR's Emily Quirk on All Things Considered.

Vice President Joe Biden becomes the 20th Democrat to get in the 2020 presidential race. Josh Rogers, NHPR’s senior political reporter, joined Emily Quirk to talk about Biden kicking off his campaign and the state of the race as it now stands in New Hampshire.

After eight years as vice president and decades of representing Delaware in the U.S. Senate, Joe Biden is definitely a known quantity. But what's his political experience been like here in New Hampshire?
