    New Hampshire health officials are hosting the first of nine forums to explain the state's new system to streamline and coordinate drug abuse treatment and recovery services.

    The federal government recently awarded the state the first installment of $45.8 million in grants for the project, which is being called ``The Doorway-NH.'' The system involves a hub-and-spoke model in which hospitals and others work with local providers to ensure that help is less than an hour away anywhere in the state.

    Public forums are being held in each hub region through the state for individuals, families, policymakers and other stakeholders.

    The first forum is set for Monday at 1 p.m. at Concord Hospital. Others will be held in Lebanon, Berlin, Littleton, Keene, Nashua, Manchester, Dover and Laconia.

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
