There are old pinball machines and arcade cabinets littered here and there in dive bars and restaurants all across the country.

But have you ever considered what it takes to maintain and repair them? I have.

Police in New Hampshire are working to find who strung up barbed wire across a neighborhood trail in Pelham.

Pelham police say the way the wire was wrapped led them to believe it was intentional, as it was also found deep in middle of the trail. WMUR-TV reports  police believe the barbed wire was set up sometime between last Thursday and Sunday.

Pelham Police Sgt. Glen Chase says it serves no purpose other than to injure someone. He says it would have been "catastrophic" if a jogger ran into it.

A town in Southern New Hampshire is considering banning 55-and-older housing.

Voters in Pelham will decide the issue during a special meeting this Saturday. The ballot question would also impose tighter zoning regulations on 62-plus housing built in town.

The measure first passed in March, but the town is holding a re-vote because town officials failed to follow proper notification requirements leading up to the first vote.

The issue is stirring a lot debate in the community about what to do about the town’s rapidly aging population.

  The Pelham Fire Chief is renewing his call for a ban on a type of controversial fireworks called reloadable mortars. That follows a second accident in his town over the holiday weekend.

Pelham Fire Chief James Midgley remembers seeing what he describes as a mushroom cloud coming from behind a residence where thirteen people were injured two years ago. Then, on July 4th this year, just around the corner, another fireworks accident injured two people. And the common thread, says Midgley, is reloadable mortars.
