Psychiatric patients choose hospital over homelessness:
CONCORD NH (AP) ? About a quarter of patients at New
Hampshire's state-run psychiatric hospital could be
discharged, but stay there because of a lack of affordable
housing and appropriate community services.
It's not uncommon for patients to stay for months after
they could have left, advocates of the mentally ill say.
Others who do leave sometimes end up in homeless
shelters or on the street.

Charities searching for food:
NASHUA NH ? Fall is harvest time for farmers, but
for local food pantries and the families they feed, the
season is more akin to famine.
The cause of the scarcity is twofold: summer donations
are typically low, while summer demand is high.
