    A North Carolina man is dead after a boat hit him Friday on Lake Winnipesaukee, according to New Hampshire State Police.

    The crash was reported just after 10 a.m. near Little Mark Island in Alton. Police arrived and found the 23-foot powerboat tied to the dock.

    Police believe 74-year-old Edmond Macri of Simsbury, Connecticut, was driving the boat, which was carrying five adults and three children.

    When Macri made an abrupt maneuver, police say 35-year-old William Rowan of Wilmington, North Carolina, fell into the water. The boat hit Rowan, who was brought to shore and pronounced dead.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.
