Problem 92. Find state names that start with the letter N

Given a list of US states, remove all the states that start with the letter N, leaving surrouding spaces intact. For example:
If
s1 = 'Alabama Montana Nebraska Vermont Nevada';
then
s2 = 'Alabama Montana Vermont ';
Notice that the spaces before and after "Nebraska" in s1 still remain between "Montana" and "Vermont" in s2. The same applies for the space before "Nevada".
Be mindful of two-word states that also start with the letter N, like "New York" or "North Carolina". For example:
If
s1 = 'Alabama Montana New York Vermont';
then
s2 = 'Alabama Montana Vermont';
Notice that the spaces before and after "New York" in s1 still remain between "Montana" and "Vermont" in s2.
