    A regular patron has stepped up to save a beloved neighborhood bar in New Hampshire from closure.

    The Portsmouth Herald reports Craig Devino offered to pay off debt at Local Restaurant & Pub, become a partner and reopen the North Hampton bar two days after it announced it would close for good Sept. 10.

    Devino has spent 35 years as a management consultant, and he has managed and sold various companies over the past 15 years.

    He says he plans to make Locals "leaner, neater, crisper."
