Plans to dual the entire road were scrapped with the local authority doing a U-turn following a heated public consultation into the £62m City Deal proposals.

The preferred option following the consultation is only dualling the section between the James Hamilton Heritage Loch junction (at the eastern end of Stewartfield Crescent) eastwards to the Kingsgate/roundabout.

Proposals to introduce a new roundabout at the Playsport access and to

NAACP: social workers, judges need better training; a second questionable case of transracial adoption emerges | Courts

A controversial adoption case that has generated accusations of racism shows that police aren’t the only government officials who need to be aware of implicit bias and systemic racism, an official with the Manchester NAACP chapter said last week.

Donna Brown, a lawyer and chair of the chapter’s legal redress committee, said the case of Sandra and Clyde Lunsford — Black grandparents whose efforts to adopt their biracial grandchildren have been rejected by New Hampshire officials — is not an isolated case.

Mageorie Richardson, a Haitian-American in Medford, Mass., who has seen her nephews placed with a White family in New Hampshire, said this state’s social workers and judges have stymied her efforts to adopt her two biracial nephews.

“People who look like me, we don’t get justice,” Richardson said.

Brown said the second case reinforces the Manchester NAACP’s concern about how New Hampshire handles transracial adoptions.

A judge temporarily blocked the state health department from releasing the names of businesses linked to COVID-19 cases on Thursday, after the Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce sued to stop the release of the information to media outlets.

The state’s largest business lobbying group argued Thursday that the records are protected by patient confidentiality laws and that disclosure will “irreparably” harm businesses by “effectively blacklisting them.”

The order from Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Lloyd V. Carter will remain in effect for five days.

Business of Football: Big Ten returns; Tyrod Taylor’s legal case

Before getting to the usual column, a word about today’s breaking news of positive COVID-19 tests shutting down team activities in the NFL:

Despite all the vigilance that the NFL and its players have shown, it was inevitable that COVID-19 would rear its head with a group of players and/or team personnel. That has now happened with the Titans and, by extension, their opponent on Sunday, the Vikings. It is way too early for alarm, as this “abundance of caution” (keeping teams out of their facilities) is what we have all prepared for. But as I said throughout the offseason, playing through the pandemic is no sure thing. The NFL has powered through with confidence since March: Free agency, the draft and training camp all went full speed ahead with necessary testing and precautions. And the first month of the season seemed surprisingly normal, with the biggest COVID-19 story line
