INMATE-PAY TO STAY
CONCORD, N.H. — A former inmate who blames the New Hampshire prison system for his poor health said he is being retaliated against for suing the state. Eric Cable sued the state in March alleging prison officials were negligent in not properly treating him for Type 2 Diabetes by failing to perform regular lab tests, foot exams or thorough eye exams. The state denied the allegations, and filed a counterclaim in July seeking a $119,000 reimbursement for the cost of Cable’s incarceration. By Holly Ramer. SENT: 400 words.
CONSOLIDATED-INVESTIGATION: The Vermont Department of Public Service is launching an investigation into customer complaints about telephone company Consolidated Communications. Complaints prompted by delayed resolution of service outages increased more than 2,000 percent between July and September compared to last year, the agency said, while complaints about installation delays grew 500 percent in the same period.
DARTMOUTH-INSENSITIVE MURAL: Dartmouth College says a set of racially insensitive murals that offended Native American students is going to be used as a teaching tool. The four painted scenes inspired by a college drinking song belittle the intellect of the tribal subjects, one of whom is holding a book upside down.
RIVIER UNIVERSITY-NEW DEGRES: Rivier University is launching two new business degrees in fields that are expected to grow rapidly in coming years. The Nashua school will add undergraduate degrees next fall in sports management and cybersecurity management. Officials say they reflect both student interest and projected U.S. employment demands, as jobs in both disciplines are expected to grow 10 to 28 percent by 2026.
