· 67 Bald Eagles were sighted in NH during the 2008 National Midwinter Bald Eagle Survey, which is up from the 2006 count of 44. NH Fish and Game Department.

· 1 Million gallons of biodiesel were used throughout NH in 2007, resulting in an 11,000 ton reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. That is equivalent to removing approximately 2,500 cars from NH’s roadways. NH Dept. of Environmental Services.

· Concord NH was ranked #2 in the U.S. News and World Report’s list of the best places to retire. Some desirable traits of the town include a median home price of $211,000 and a population of 42,336. Concord was the only New England city featured in the Top Ten. U.S. News and World Report.

· The unemployment rate in NH in December 2007 fell below the national unemployment rate of 5%. NH’s was 3.6%. NH Employment Security.
