New Hampshire number crunchers celebrate as the Granite State ends its fiscal year, forty eight million dollars above expectation, house and condo sales have reached an eight year high, while our food banks seem to be running out. House republicans rank their representatives giving six a perfect score, while a high amount of rainfall creates imperfect conditions at local beaches. Armored vehicles may be coming to a police department near you and despite the fact that lawmakers have gone home for the summer, killed legislation on gambling and a gas tax seems to have risen from the dead as a some have suggested that money could help pay for our cash-strapped roads.  We'll look at the big stories for the week of July 29th.
