Boys and Girls Golf Fundraiser
to be Held in Memory of Bill Flynn

original mission of providing children with the opportunity to play golf. This year the Salem Boys & Girls Clubs Annual Golf Tournament Fundraiser hosted by the Windham Country Club will be dedicated to the Memory of Bill Flynn. Bill who founded the Windham Country Club in 1995 died at the age of 74 in July of 2011. He was an accomplished club pro, champion player, business owner with three country clubs, and junior golf pioneer. Although few have accomplished as much as Bill has in the golfing world he is best remembered by those closest to him as a man who was not only humble, but also quietly generous and gracious and someone that made a tremendous difference in the lives of children through golf. Bill Flynn began his love of golf when he accepted a job as a caddy at the Old United Shoe Golf Club in Beverly, MA, in 1946 at the age of 10. Although neither of Bill’s parents golfed and he was born with a partially paralyzed right arm that never healed, he did not let it deter him from learning to play. He was a natural righty but his desire and determination drove him to learn to golf from the unorthodox left side. He turned pro at the age of 17 and four years later won the 1959 Vermont open at 22 with a 64-67131 at Lake Morey, one of the lowest scores continued to page 5 - Bill Flynn Golf

Rev. Theresa Novak Chabot the New-Norm?
submitted by Pat Blodgett The buzzword ‘new-norm’ refers to a paradigm shift from traditional ways, exemplified by women throughout history who courageously brought about change as a newnorm to society, such as Suffragettes, Civil Rights demonstrators, female CEOs, Congresswomen, and most recently, women serving in the military. Rev. Theresa Rev. Theresa Novak Chabot Novak Chabot, New Hampshire’s first Roman Catholic Woman Priest, is one of thousands of women and men working to bring about a new-norm to their religion. A product of a strict Polish Catholic upbringing, the New Hampshire native received a Masters in Theology in Pastoral Ministry/Spirituality from St. Michael College in Vermont, intending to become a hospital chaplain. From 2003-2006, she was Director of Development for NH Catholic Charities, heading marketing, public relations, and fundraising efforts for the state’s largest private, non-profit, social service agency that is affiliated with the Diocese of Manchester. Those close to Rev. Chabot knew of her yearning to serve the Catholic Church as a priest and a married woman, and empathized with her frustration at being excluded only because of her gender. She describes the first time she attended a Mass celebrated by a Woman Priest in New York state, saying, “I sobbed the entire time. I was joyful about what I was witnessing, but it was extremely painful, knowing I would have to give up my many parish ministries that I loved if I were ordained. In spite of the pain and uncertainty, in 2008 she made the decision to answer her call to ordination through Roman Catholic Women Priests, a movement from within the Catholic Church. Following additional study and liturgical preparation, she was ordained a deacon in 2009 in Weston, MA, and a priest in 2010 in Rochester, NY . Rev. Chabot is a very soft-spoken woman, and speaking with her leaves no doubt about her sincerity and passion for serving people as a Catholic priest. In spite of her frustrations and struggles of the past, you won’t see a fist raised in anger against the Church. “It’s not about power, and it’s not a reaction to the abuse controversy. I simply followed what was in my heart. I knew I needed to say “Yes” to ordination not only for myself but for the women who will follow in the future. I was not afraid to do this, but I was afraid not to do what God had wanted of continued to page 5 - Rev. Theresa Novak Chabot

Sean Corey Thanks Fire Station for Making his Dreams Come True
by Kristen Hoffman When the fire truck rolled up to Patricia Corey’s house on August 9, sirens and lights blaring, spirits were high. The scene was familiar, but the emotions were not: Patricia was not in a panic. Unlike all the other times, there was not a medical emergency at Corey’s south Salem residence. At five years old, her son, Sean Corey has seen his fair share of fire trucks, and paramedics. Born with multicystic dysplastic kidney, he has been rushed to the hospital numerous times. But on that day, the trucks arrived with a message of hope: he got to live out his lifetime dream: become a firefighter. Members of the Salem Fire Department in conjunction with the Windham Fire Department helped make Sean’s dreams come true, by taking him on his very own mock training mission, “It was a day of hope for him,” Patricia said. According to Firefighter Mike Marchand, it took almost a month to coordinate the visit. Marchand added that everybody on the department was more than willing to help make the boy’s dream come true. Sean was fitted with his own Salem Fire Department uniform, and an official, navy blue, Salem Fire Department T-shirt. With the help of the Windham Fire Department, who donated a simulated smoke machine, Sean was able to help fight a simulated fire at Rockingham Park Sean is essentially surviving with the help of his right kidney, which is about 90 percent formed. Despite a primarily grim outlook, Sean has managed to beat the odds. His right kidney continues to grow while his left kidney dissolves, which, according to Patricia is the best-case scenario. According to his mother, he has been fascinated with them since a young age. “I remember they came for an emergency call, and he pointed at the fire truck, and said, ‘mommy, I want to go to the hospital in that truck,” Patricia said. From that point on, he has been interested in fire trucks, and the lives of firefighters. Though his illness has left him fragile, his spirit remains high. “We’ve come a long way,” Patricia added. Sean has had a tough life so far. He spends most of his time in and out of the hospital. But it’s impossible to see that when you look at him. All you can really notice is his infectious smile, “He’s a trooper, it’s really amazing,” she continued. A week later, the boy decided to thank the departments that helped make his day. On August 17, Sean presented a hand painted picture to Salem’s Lawrence Road Fire Station 3. Lieutenant Chris Hamilton, and Firefighters Nick St. Pierre and Bryan Murray were more than happy to accept the gift. The men then showed Sean around the fire station. Unsurprisingly, Sean was able to name most of the parts of the fire truck, and was able to describe what the different apparatuses do. Patricia said that all of the attention from the fire departments has really made an impact on Sean, “every morning, he comes in,

School Board Looks at Solid Waste Management Alternatives
by S. Aaron Shamshoyan An increase in solid waste removal price for the Salem School District is causing the board to look for a more cost efficient solution. The district currently holds a contract with Casella, according to Superintendent of Schools Michael Delahanty, but since the town has recently severed their relationship with the company, costs are increasing. Delahanty said the district would look into two other companies, Waste Management and E.L. Harvey. Estimates from both companies were not received prior to the meeting. Delahanty said Waste Management, the company currently contracted by the town to operate the transfer station, had not returned the quote over a week after being contacted. He said the extra time provided the staff the opportunity to contact E.L. Harvey, a company that submitted a bid to operate the transfer station. “We did have the opportunity to talk to a third party,” Delahanty said. “We provided all the companies with the exact services we are being provided now.” Estimates from the companies will help the board determine if they should put the service out-to-bid. This would allow any company interested to submit offers for the contract. The district has maintained their current relationship with Casella over the past 10 years, Delahanty said.

Lt. Chris Hamilton, Sean, and Firefighters Brian Murray and Nick St. Pierre and says, ‘firefighter Sean reporting for breakfast,” she said. She added that she has to wash his Salem Fire Department shirt every night, because he wears it every day. On Friday, Sean was treated to yet another tour of the fire station. Unsurprisingly, he was able to name the different parts of the fire truck, and describe what different apparatuses did. Murray even set him up on the fire pole, but, with a coy smile, Sean refused to slide down it. Patricia said that Sean plans to bring gifts to the other stations that helped make his dreams come true. She added that the Fire Departments have done amazing things for her son, “Now he wants to save and rescue people,” giving her hope for her son’s future.

“Bach” to the Future at St. Joseph’s Parish
Staff photos by Gloria Lavoie Sullivan

by Gloria Lavoie Sullivan The ominous and thrilling sound of Toccata and Fugue played on the pipe organ was just the first thing that enchanted the guests as they sat in St. Joseph’s Church last Friday night. Musicians Nicole Routhier and Christopher Pelonzi organized an evening of music and charitable giving in their hometown of Salem to the delight of a full house. Routhier, a 21-year-old flutist is pursuing Flute Performance at the University of Texas at Austin. She explained, “We’re both music majors home from college for the summer and we both wanted to do something special for the community.” Pelonzi, a 21 year-old organist who is in his last year at McGill University for organ performance said, “This is what we like to do. This is our passion so we figured we would share it and help somebody at the same time.” In just five week’s time, the two young Salem residents began recruiting other musicians and performers to join them for a night in which they could showcase their

skills and give back to the Community. Father John suggested that guests could be encouraged to bring non-perishable items to donate to the food pantry. Guests also filled a “Free Will” donation box in appreciation of the evening’s offerings. Professional musicians, emerging professionals and music students from the area donned the stage in their formal finery and filled the night air with their voices and music. The evening’s entertainment was aptly named “Bach to the Future” to illustrate the variety of music that would be heard. The music genre varied from classical, to Jazz, to Christian rock, to folk songs. Pelonzi and Routhier hope that this event will not be the only one to be hosted by the Parish. They were so thankful by the support they received by the Parish, the Community and the other musicians. Pelonzi’s mother, Pat Kulesz, proudly stood and chatted with guests at the entrance to the Church during intermission. “It’s so nice to see young people doing this. They are only 19, 20 and 21 and they are putting on music of a very high quality,” she stated. The performers all gathered on stage

The Word Around Town...
Letters to our Editor

Insight Into Obama’s Prior Life
I just finished Dinesh D’Souza’s book, “Roots of Obama’s Rage” and his analysis of the first three and a half years of the President’s time in office is chilling as well as interesting. He does in-depth research into the earlier years of Obama’s life to try to decipher why he might be acting as he is as President. Some of the questions he asks as groundwork for his analysis are: Why was Obama so intent on getting our troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan ... and why would he tell the world the deadline for the removal. Why was he making so many decisions that are detrimental to small businesses (those who made more than $250K) and therefore the life of our economy? Why would he work to get funding for offshore drilling in South America but refuse to be open to drilling off our own shores? Was his decision to plunge the nation into deeper debt than ever before really an attempt to stimulate the economy? If so, why was so much money used in “public” projects rather than to help businesses expand and hire more employees? Is a concern for the poor really behind his push for national healthcare? Mr. D’Souza suggests that there is a hidden agenda behind these decisions and much of it springs from his father’s history. Barack Obama Sr. had a deep hatred for the nation that colonized Kenya and exploited the country for all its wealth and resources. Mr. D’Souza also brings to our attention the individuals who most influenced a young Obama prior to his involvement in politics; Edward Said, Roberto Unger both anti-colonists who taught him at Harvard. Both Said and Unger preached strong messages of the evil of nations that would impose their will on the poor people of developing countries. Because it’s so hard to capsulize the message of this book, I urge all who read this to go to the movie, “2016: Obama’s America”, which is opening at the Methuen 20 theater at the Loop on Friday, August 31. Judge for yourselves if there is a hidden agenda behind the man we call our President. It may well influence your vote in November; it should! David Costello, Salem

Mitt Embraces Socialism
Mitt Romney’s lavish praise of Israel’s Healthcare system is well deserved. The Israeli system has created a longer life expectancy for both men and women. The infant mortality rate is much lower. The per capita spending is only one – third that of the United States and expenditures as percentage of GDP is half (see page A10 August 1, 2012 Boston Globe). All senior citizens are covered by health insurance. The healthcare system is run by the government and all citizens are expected to purchase health insurance, in other words Israel has a socialistic healthcare system with more controls than Obamacare. This should not be too surprising since 95 percent plus of the industrial nations in the world have a health system that is controlled completely or partially by the national government. Required participation in an insurance program is what makes a wide variety of healthcare systems work effectively. This is no surprise to Mitt Romney, which is why as Governor he signed the Health Care Reform Act in Massachusetts. Endorsing the notion that government can do anything well violates the core belief of the Tea Party; who as we all know have all the answers to all the country’s problems. The real reason that Republicans are against the Affordable Care Act is that it was signed by a Democratic President, which violates a second core belief, “No Democrat shall receive credit or credibility for any piece of legislation.” Mitt knows very well that government involvement in healthcare is necessary for an effective system whose goal is healthcare for citizens and not maximum profits for insurance companies. Pandering to the right wing Tea Party only makes the problems within the healthcare system more difficult to solve. Obamacare is not perfect but it is a good beginning. In order to improve it will require the cooperation of both political parties, this will happen when the Republican Party reclaims leadership from the radical Tea Party that has taken control. I can’t wait for the Romney - Ryan voucher plan to end government involvement in Medicare. I wonder why current seniors are exempt if it is such a great idea? Without government controls will insurance companies cover seniors with pre-existing conditions? Will lifetime limits on coverage be re-instituted? Will all seniors be guaranteed access? And here is a real difficult question: Will health insurance companies’ profits dramatically increase? I think the time has come for Mitt and Paul to get very specific on where they are going to take senior citizens when the current Medicare system is gone. John Mosto, Salem continued to page 5 - Letters to our Editor

ink About the Future, Not the Past is Election Season
February 8, 2008, George Bush signed the stimulus package which allowed many of us on Social Security to get checks for $300. Congress went along with it but they did not cut spending at that time, therefore, when President Bush left office, we had a $10 trillion deficit. This caused higher oil prices and inflation. That was the first stimulus package. Our leaders knew that we were in trouble. How big was this trouble? Did anyone know? President Obama’s stimulus plan didn’t fix everything the way we would have like it to but what would have happened without it? A repeat of 1929 when people lost everything and many jumped out of windows to their deaths. Did anyone realize just how bad the economy was? I think not! No one died and stocks will recover. Economists say that it will take five years to fully recover. Our auto industry is on the mend because of President Obama. I believe that those who have the money (corporations as well as those earning over $250,000) don’t want to invest in energy of the future. They are just sitting on their money, hoping that President Obama will not be re-elected Then they will invest in coal and oil. Is that caring about our country? If Mr. Romney wins our millionaires will be happy because they get to pay less taxes (per cent age wise) (Keeping the first million, tax free, isn’t enough?) Under the republican plan only two of American households will benefit from their proposal. President Obama is thinking about the future. Long range programs. What is good for the long term, not a quick fix and then we have to rethink everything again. His health Care Plan is not a quick fix. It is a great beginning. Our Republicans friends want to continue with coal and oil (even though, we ,the people subsidize the oil industry) (The oil companies make the profit and we help them with subsidies.) Exxon, made the highest profits of anyone this year and we, the taxpayer Helped them.. Do we, as a people not want to have clean air, and water for our future generations. How can we not believe that our earth is in danger from climate change? The ice is melting oceans are rising, polar bears are becoming extinct (because of the melting) yet we continue with the oil industry in charge. Oil, is not clean energy (note the oil spills in our oceans (will they be cleaned up in our life time? I doubt it!). Investing in new energy will create jobs and protect our world for the generations to come. We, constantly say, that we want a better future for our children and grandchildren. This earth was given to us by God and we were to take care of it but greed seems to have overtaken us and we think that getting our deficit down is the only important thing. Our world is what we leave our children and many of our law makers still don’t believe that the climate is changing( I understand that Paul Ryan is one of them. Please, independents and those that believe that we are at a crossroads. Is the future really only about money or are we a better society than that?. President Obama is thinking ahead. Our world is at stake. Catherine Panciocco, Salem

Supporting Kuster

is Election

Annie Kuster, Democrat candidate for Congress in our Second District, inherited her political drive and ambition from her two parents, her father who was mayor of Concord and ran for governor as an Independent and her mother who served as a state senator. She ran a brilliant campaign two years ago against present incumbent Charlie Bass, losing by 1 percentage point (48-47). Bass was the recipient that election of New Hampshire’s Republican Red Tide, a conservative resurgence that due to GOP enthusiasm and Democrat inaction has led to both rampant job loss and destructive education cuts in the Granite State, as well as the ugly right-wing social engineering by Bill O’Brien’s House of Representatives in Concord. Kuster’s June 7 announcement to run once more against Bass was great news to both citizens who have watched the scuttling of our former “New Hampshire Advantage” that governor John Lynch built over his eight years in office, as well as for Independents and Democrats alike who are tired of the anti-everything agenda of the Grover Norquist-cowed Republicans in Washington, DC. Along with her legal career with law firm Rath, Young and Pignatelli (which included work as an adoption attorney), Annie worked on the presidential campaigns of both John Kerry and Barack Obama. She also has served on the boards of numerous charitable organizations including founding and vice-chairing the Women’s Foundation of New Hampshire, as well as helping to create the Granite State’s unique College Savings Plan and the New Hampshire Medication Bridge Program. Unlike Bass, who has demonstrated the same lurch-to-the-right voting record and ideology that most modern-day Republicans “boast” in order to gain any traction with their Tea-Party mandated madness (see latest example Missouri Congressman Todd Akin), Kuster has the backs of America’s middle class, a constituency that is under siege currently by the GOP on both state and national levels. While the priorities of the Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan collaboration is an open-faced boon for the nation’s affluent and a knockout punch for our middle class and poor, Kuster’s centrist platform is a common sense series of policies that will raise the boats of most of our citizens while reducing the national deficit. Here is a good overview of her platform from the candidate herself: “I believe we need to cut wasteful government spending - like the billions in subsidies for oil companies, the corporate tax breaks for moving jobs overseas, and the billions more spent on redundant weapons systems that our military leaders have identified as wasteful and unneeded. But instead of these cuts, the U.S. House of Representatives is cutting what we need most: education, public safety, and the clean energy research that will reduce our dependence on foreign oil. It makes no sense. America can do better than this - so, it’s time for all of us to do something about it.” Kuster will work and vote to end the obscene $4 billion in subsidies that our tax dollars inexplicably still funnel to Big Oil every year, as well as stop the annual windfall realized by offshore corporations and direct those funds to creating more jobs here in New Hampshire. She will fight the financiallynonsensical GOP aims to change Medicare to a voucher program, invest in the welcome national trend to renewable energy to reduce our overlong dependency on foreign oil, and increase college student loans while keeping their interest rates low. Annie Kuster has a present small lead over Charlie Bass in current polling, a lead that won’t mean a thing in November unless voters who want to restore our state to where it was two years ago, as well as prevent America from falling to the anti-middle class morass promised by Romney/Ryan, exercise their voting rights more purposefully than they did in 2010. She will be a welcome panacea to the O’Brien-led devolution of the state we all love, as well as a sure vote in Washington to counter the erosion of everything 99 percent of us are working for in order to line the pockets of the nation’s

A Vote for Ryan is a Vote Against Women

Women must be aware! Paul Ryan is a troubling choice as Romney’s running mate. The facts:  Paul Ryan voted against the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay act. He apparently doesn’t believe women should get the same pay as men get for the same job.  Ryan opposes abortion even in cases of rape and incest. He voted 59 times against a woman’s right to choice. He would let a woman die rather than An extra 10% OFF your entire purchase (includes sales) have an abortion. from 8-10 am every morning. Good Aug. 24-Aug. 30  Ryan has repeatedly said he would defund Planned Parenthood. This would Hurry, Discount ends at the registers 10 am promptly. leave millions of women without access to reproductive healthcare and preventative healthcare services such as mammograms. MUMS ARE HERE! Great Selection!  Ryan would criminalize some forms of birth control. Not only does he oppose the health care law’s  requirement that insurance companies cover birth control, he supports legislation that would outlaw some forms of birth control.  Ryan laws would make In Vitro fertilization very difficult, driving practitioners out of the business. Women around the world use In Vitro fertilization routinely as they Rochelle Moore, Client currently do here in the U.S. The In Vitro process is used by some of the estimated 10 percent to 15 percent of couples who want to have a child but are having trouble getting pregnant. Women’s healthcare and reproductive rights should not be legislated.

Counting the “Untruths” in Romney and Ryan’s Rhetoric
While driving today I listened to Mitt Romney on the radio, he spent 20 minutes saying nasty things and untruths about the President and not one thing on how he would govern if elected. The latest untruth is about Medicare how the President took $716 billion from Medicare; the truth is the Affordable Care Act Medicare portion saves $716 billion over 10 years. The savings will come from reducing the increase to providers (agreed to by the providers), removed subsidies to insurance and drug companies, waste and fraud. Waste is 15 percent of Medicare costs, caused mostly by redundant testing. This waste will be removed with the new delivery system. The ACA is not telling how they will deal with fraud, by telling us they would be telling fraud committers. Today the best fraud detectors are seniors checking their CMS Summary. The $716 billion in savings will increase the life of Medicare by eight years. There have been improvements to Medicare. Medicare covers annual wellness physicals. Now seniors will get free preventive care, like mammograms, colon screening, cancer screening and flu shots, etc. Seniors that fall in the donut hole gets a 50 percent discount on prescriptions and by 2020 the donut hole will be closed. Also primary care providers and specialists across the country in areas that have a shortage of doctor gets a bonus payment from Medicare, which helps make sure that everyone can get the care they need. It is a lie when Republicans say that Medicare has been weakened by the ACA, it has been strengthen with best practices, with these improvement no benefits have been cut from Medicare. Check it out at www.medicare.gov. I can’t figure out why Romney picked Ryan. Ryan says he is a fiscal conservative, the definition of which is: Don’t spend anything if you can’t pay for it. Ryan voted for the Bush tax cuts, the two wars, part D in Medicare, and TARP (Wall Street Bailout) all unpaid for. Obama is still paying for all that so it keeps his budget high. Ryan came up with Ayn Rand’s dream budget. (Rand’s favors the rich, do everything to protect the rich). In making Medicare a voucher program (in 2020 seniors would have to pay an additional $6,400 out of pocket for insurance) he takes $716 billion paid by Medicare recipients to give tax breaks for the rich. He now adds traditional Medicare as an option. Romney favors a mix of traditional Medicare and vouchers and does not take the $716 billion; he has neither price control nor a system to cut out waste or fraud. How in the world would they be able to score either plan not knowing what a person turning 65 would do? When I turned 65 the last thing I wanted to do was deal with insurance companies, I love Medicare. Rebecca Fee, Salem On behalf of the Salem Firefighters Relief Association, we would like to thank the participants and sponsors of our 26th Annual Dog Days Open Golf Tournament that was held on August 9 at Merrimack Golf Club in Methuen, MA. Due to the generosity of our players and sponsors, we were able to donate $2,000 to the New Hampshire Police, Fire, and EMS Foundation. Their mission is to be a resource for the needs of Police, Fire and EMS personnel and their families in dealing with a crisis or catastrophes not covered by insurance, employing agencies, or workers compensation funds. Further information about NH Police, Fire, and EMS Foundation can be found at www.nhpfef.com. We would ask that people support and patronize the following sponsors that made our donation possible: Santo Insurance, BJ’s Wholesale Club, Salem Cooperative Bank, Canobie Lake Park, Home Depot, Firematic Equipment, Streamlight, Atkinson Graphics, Atkinson Country Club, Best Buy, Woody’s Towing, Two Guys Smoke Shop, Liberty Mutual Insurance, Murray’s Tavern, , Eastern Bank, Gemini Electric, Greenwood Emergency Vehicles, Bergeron Protective Clothing, Molan Milner and Krupski, LLC, Tuscan Kitchen, Plaza Azteca, Balduccis Pizza, Polcaris, T-Bones, Buono Panini, Esco Awards, Market Basket, Scrub-A-Dub Car Wash, It’s All About Moi, Vibe Salon, Salem Kiwanis, and the Holiday Inn.

in tournament history. He went on to win the Massachusetts Open in 1963, became the New England Professional Golfers Association of America (NEPGA) Champion in 1968, and purchased Lakeview Golf Club in Wenham, MA, in 1972. He served on the Board of the NEPGA as secretary-treasurer in his early years and eventually became the organizations national Vice President. He inaugurated the North Shore Amateur Championship three years later which recently played their 36th annual event. After winning the “professional of the year” award by the NEPGA he purchased his second golf course in 1977, Far Corner in Boxford, MA. Over

“There is no better game for getting kids off the streets, keeping them out of trouble and giving them a chance to have some fun than golf.” Bill Flynn (1936 – 2011); NEPGA Hall of Fame Member and pioneer of junior golf.
the next 10 years he managed Mount Hood Golf Course in Melrose, MA, and introduced “free Monday,” a teaching playing clinic for children, and was awarded a second “professional of the year” award by the NEPGA. In 1992 Bill began the development of the Windham Country Club, and the 18-hole course opened in 1995. Bill’s love of golf showed through his encouragement to others as he was known to inspire club members, caddies, and young people to get involved in the game in any way that they could. He gave indoor lessons to hundreds of women before anyone else. Bill pioneered junior golf in the 1970s before it was expected or in vogue for athletes to support their sport through volunteerism. While managing Mount Hood, George Wright in Hyde Park, and

Chabot celebrates Mass for the members of the Church of the Holy Spirit in Manchester in house settings much like the early Church, but is searching for a larger location for Sunday mornings. She is available to speak to groups throughout the state and can be reached at www. holyspiritnh.org. In her words, “Every Catholic woman should experience seeing a woman at the altar, just to know that there is hope. It’s a very profound experience.”

Franklin Park Golf Course he started the first revolutionary golf camps that believed in giving inner city kids from Dorchester and Lowell, MA, the chance to experience golf in a safe and healthy environment. He wasn’t just a facilitator of the golfing camps he was in the trenches working with the kids when there were 500 there at a time. Bill has been quoted as saying that “There is no better game for getting kids off the street, keeping them out of trouble and giving them a chance to have some fun then golf.” Bill’s children are committed to carrying on his legacy in the way that he conducted business, in supporting the community by hosting charity events and by introducing golf to children. Bill’s sons, Bob and Michael, manage the two golf courses in Massachusetts, Far Corner and Lakeview. Bill’s daughter Joanne is a PGA member and the Director of Golf at the Windham Country Club which hosted 75 charity events last year. Joanne supports the Salem Boys & Girls Club and has chaired the annual auction for several years while currently serving as the Vice President of the Board. She is also a Board Member of the Salem Animal Rescue League (SARL). Bill Flynn’s legacy and his ability to succeed both on and off the course has had a positive impact and left a lasting impression on many people including the current generation that is learning to play golf in Windham through the Boys & Girls Club. When I attended this week’s lesson I couldn’t help but notice how happy the kids were to be playing golf. After putting on their new golf t-shirts and getting their clubs I overheard Aiden Azevdo and Devin Dimento discussing their game. “I don’t like to chip” Aiden commented, “I would rather drive” responded Devin. When I asked Lee Poulin what his favorite part of golfing was he responded with a big smile “I like it all.”

Importance of Social Interaction Subject of Upcoming Seniors Count Workshop
submitted by Beth Quarm Todgham, Southern New Hampshire Services As they age, many older adults find it harder to drive, walk, think clearly, remember and manage stress. Staying home, watching TV and limiting social activities can easily become a simple solution to making their lives more manageable. Staying close to home can be an effective way to address these challenges of aging and reduce anxiety, but on the flipside, the lack of social interaction can have an effect on an individual’s overall health, including their emotional and psychological health. The “Danger of Isolation for Older Adults” is the theme of the September Seniors CountNashua workshop. The workshop is scheduled for Monday, September 10, at the Nashua Senior Activity Center, 70 Temple St., Nashua. The free workshop begins at 1 p.m. Workshop presenter is Alice Cassidy from the Greater Nashua Mental Health Center. Advance registration for the workshop is requested. Call Beth Todgham, Seniors CountNashua facilitator for Southern New Hampshire Services at 889-3440, ext. 629 for more information. Workshop participants can come early to enjoy lunch offered by St. Joseph Community Services (Meals on Wheels) in the cafeteria at the Nashua Senior Activity Center. A $2 donation is requested for diners age 60 and over; the price is slightly higher for those under 60. Pre-registration for lunch is required. Call Steve, SJCS site manager, at 882-2106 to reserve your lunch. Lunch is served from 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. The workshop is one of a series of free programs offered monthly at the Senior Activity Center by Seniors Count-Nashua. The workshops provide area residents with information on resources available in the community as they age. Past workshops have included topics on senior fraud and identity theft, senior driving issues, gizmos and gadgets to stay safe in your home, clutter control and understanding what a loved one with dementia is experiencing. All programs have been filmed by Nashua’ Education Channel 99. Programs are broadcast Mondays at 1 p.m. and can be viewed on-line at http://nashua. ezstream.com.

School Supplies Donated During Boys and Girls Club Event
by AJ Dickinson Marlinda Garcia, a third term state representative from Salem, recently partnered with the Office Depot Foundation, in an attempt to donate colorful new sackpacks containing essential school supplies to the Greater Salem Boys and Girls Club. The Foundations 2012 National Backpack program is in partnership with the Nation Foundation for Women Legislators (NFWL). A non-profit , non-partisan organization that serves as a forum for women legislators to be empowered through information and experience. “It is critical that we ensure that all youth have the supplies they need to be successful inside the classroom,” said. Garcia. “I am honored to have the opportunity to present these sackpacks to deserving students. Public-private partnerships like this are crucial during tough economic times. As New Hampshire’s NFWL Education Team Leader, I must commend the Office Depot Foundation on its efforts to help children succeed by providing basic school supplies, which many of us take for granted,” she added. The NFWL who has been partnering with the backpack program for the past seven years will be provided more than 15,000 sack packs for distribution this year, by female officials in all 50 states. By the end of this year the Office Depot Foundation which began in 2001 has helped more than 2.9 million children get the supplies they need for school. “While we are working to improve education standards and setting the stage for our children to acquire the skills and knowledge they will need in the future to be able

actually be a cheaper option than providing the insurance. “We provide employment to over 300 workers. We currently offer health insurance at the employee’s cost but virtually none of them take it because of the high cost. What will possibly happen is that we will either have to increase our markup to our customers seven or eight percent, or pass on that cost to the worker effectively producing a pay cut. No one likes a pay cut especially in this economy,” Gudak said. Bass stated his belief in the need to vote for Republican candidates to create an opportunity to overturn the law. “The only way that the situation can be fixed is when the population says ‘that’s enough’ and gets out to the ballot box and votes for the candidates that will overturn the law,” Bass said.

School Lunch vs. Bag Lunch: What’s Best for Your Kids?
Bag it or buy it? What’s healthier and what will they eat? It’s a question faced by parents each school year. Often, there’s an assumption that bagging is better, but there’s also the convenience and choices of school lunch to consider. Good news: both the tray and the tote can be winning meals. A few important facts can help make this year’s lunchtime decisions a breeze. New school lunch initiatives Much attention has been paid to children’s health and there’s an increased awareness that lunch at school is a critical source of nutrition for students. New federal guidelines have been introduced to ensure that menus provide more whole grains, more fruits and vegetables and less fat and sodium. Thanks to dedicated efforts driven by schools, parents and the federal government, many positive changes are occurring. “There’s a lot happening in the lunch line,” says Dr. Brian Wansink, researcher and professor at Cornell University. Wansink and Dr. David Just, researcher and associate professor at Cornell University, created Smarter Lunchrooms, a multi-faceted program that provides schools with tools that can improve children’s eating behaviors in the cafeteria. “It’s a common misconception that kids won’t eat healthy foods, but our work shows that not to be the case. We can encourage healthy choices in the way we present foods to kids,” says Wansink. He and his team have carefully studied the cafeteria line and how kids choose foods. The placement of foods on the lunch line, how foods are named on the menu and offering choices significantly affect which foods kids select. For example, moving fruit from a commercial bin to an attractive fruit bowl near the end of the line is proven to increase selection. “Banning favorite foods such as tacos and pizza from a cafeteria can backfire,” adds Wansink. “When kids feel restricted or forced into a decision, they rebel and may choose not to eat. Nobody wins in that scenario. We know a healthy lunch is necessary for good school performance.” Companies have stepped up to improve nutrition by creating new versions of kid-favorite foods that meet the new USDA school meal rules. Stir-fry, tacos, pastas and pizzas have become healthy fare as lower fat, lower sodium, whole grain versions have been introduced. For example, Schwan’s Food Service created Big Daddy’s(R) Cheese Pizza with a 51 percent wholegrain crust. It contains 25 percent Daily Value (DV) fruit drinks, and popular energy drinks and sports drinks lack calcium and often contain added sugars. That’s a problem. Up to 90 percent of a person’s bone density is formed by age 18 and those school years are crucial for building bone strength to last a lifetime. Be sure to pack a calcium-rich drink. New grains and new ways of making bread mean better whole grain bread choices are available for sandwiches. Breads can be soft and moist yet still deliver whole grain goodness plus, in some cases, enough nutrients to rival fruits and vegetables. Food safety is a big concern for bag lunches. Perishable foods need to be eaten within two hours if they’re left at room temperature and most brown bag lunches sit in a desk or locker for longer than that, turning them into bacteria havens and making them risky to eat. Home-packed meals need to be put in insulated, chilled bags that will keep foods in a safe temperature zone, sometimes for four or five hours. If your child isn’t keen on carrying an insulated bag (many older kids aren’t), or to reduce overall food safety risks, school lunches are an easy, nutritious fix. Lunchtime is a highlight of many school days and an essential part of a productive one. Talk with your kids about what they eat and how lunch can help or hold them back from learning, running faster at recess or performing their best in after school activities. A healthful lunch will keep them fully fueled for the rest of their day. - ARA Content

of calcium, as well as healthy amounts of potassium and protein, for less than 320 calories. Spicier sauces and more ethnic food choices are meeting students’ expanded flavor palates, too. As of this fall, school lunches will also offer more produce, including dark green, red and orange vegetables, dry beans and legumes, all of which are nutrientrich. More farm-to-school programs add the option of locally grown produce for portions of the school year. Bag lunch betterments Much like the cafeteria, the quality of a bag lunch hinges on what’s been chosen and eaten. To paraphrase Wansink, it’s not nutrition until it’s eaten. One easy step to improve the quality of a bag lunch and the chance it will be enjoyed is to increase your kids’ involvement in the process. Have them help shop for foods and talk to them about which food categories make a lunch that makes a difference. Then have them help bag it up. Remember that drinks matter at lunchtime. Soda,

Safely Share the Road with School Buses
submitted by David Silvey According to the American School Bus Council, school buses are designed to be safer than passenger vehicles in avoiding crashes and preventing injury. Today, as compared to years ago, school buses are built with safety in mind. In fact, a study by the U.S. Department of Transportation states that children are safer riding the bus to and from school than being driven in a car by an adult. When you are sharing the road with school buses, follow these tips. Yellow and Red Flashing Lights – School buses have yellow lights to warn drivers they will be making a stop and red flashing lights and an extendable stop sign to tell drivers to stop. Yellow does not mean go faster, it means slow down. Be aware of your surroundings and always come to a complete stop. Do not continue driving until the lights have turned off and the sign is pulled in. Passing a School Bus – It is illegal to pass a school bus on the right side of the road because you cannot be aware of where the bus needs to stop to load or unload. Always wait for the bus to move to the right lane or stay a safe distance behind it. Additionally, it is illegal in all 50 states to pass a school bus that is stopped to load or unload children. It is vital that you stop your vehicle at least 10 feet away from the school bus to allow for riders to enter and exit safely. Railroad Crossings – In most states it is required that school buses stop at all railway crossings. Be alert when a crossing is ahead and a school bus nearby so that you can stop as well. Divided Highways – You must always stop for flashing red lights; however, most states do not require drivers to stop when on the opposite side of a divided highway. Use extreme caution if you are in this situation as passengers may be trying to cross in that area, especially if there is a crosswalk. Buses Need Turning Space – Just like trucks, buses have a wide turning radius. Remember to provide them with ample turning space so they can maneuver easily on the road. Watch for Children Waiting for the Bus – As the driver, you are responsible for keeping an eye on the road and on children waiting for the bus. Come to a complete stop at all stop lights and stop signs, drive slowly near bus stops and watch for children crossing the road. Slow Down – Use caution if you are driving in residential areas and school zones. Fines for speeding in an area can be hefty. Allow for Extra Time During Your Commute – School bus drivers have to follow the same speed limit rules as every other driver; however, they make frequent stops which can delay traffic. Know the bus routes in your community and allow ample travel time when school is in session.

Dentist Charged with Simple Assault on a Child
submitted by Salem Police Department On Friday, May 18, at approximately 2:15 p.m., Salem Police received a report from a mother stating that her eight- year-old son had been assaulted by his dentist, John Bassett, DMD, during a follow-up appointment at Bassett’s Stiles Road office. The eight year old was touching some glass jars on a counter that held Bassett dentistry equipment. The boy then opened the lid to one of the jars and started pulling out gauze. The child’s mother reported that Bassett yelled, “We don’t do that here!” and slapped the boy on the back with an open hand. The mother immediately grabbed her son and left the office. Once outside the office she found a large red welt in the shape of a hand on his back. The mother photographed the injury and returned home. The case was assigned to detectives who conducted a followup investigation and determined an assault had taken place. An arrest warrant was issued for Bassett, charging him John Bassett with Simple Assault, a class A misdemeanor. Bassett, 63, of Windham, turned himself in to police on Monday, August 13, and was released on $1,000 personal recognizance bail.

“Thumbs down to Obama and his supporters. He is such a liar. He has ruined this country. There are so many screw-ups, I don’t have time for it. He is evil, and has a secret agenda planned for us if re-elected. We can’t let that happen. Can’t you supporters see the face behind the face? Michelle should zip it, too. She is almost as annoying as him. In the beginning I heard that the public said she was so much like Princess Diana. Are you kidding me?” “Thumbs down to the inconsiderate tenants who seem to think that everyone wants to listen to the booming bass of your music day in and day out. If you want to ruin your hearing, so be it, put on headphones and give the rest of the tenants a break from the annoying pounding.” “Thumbs up to those who want Republicans and Conservatives out of their bedroom.

My daughter saw on channel 17 (SCTV) to contact police for a permit if you have an alarm. What?! We have an alarm and we don’t need a permit! It is ‘private’ and we don’t want people to know so when someone breaks in, it will be a surprise! You think we’d announce our alarm to police? Or to anyone? No! That would be ‘gossip’ for them to tell and talk about, all over town. Don’t tell anyone you have alarms! No one!”

“Thumbs down to the US congress. Why is there no declaration of war? If no war, how can the congress ignore the constitution maintaining a standing army? The US wastes most of the $2800 it spends each year for each person in the US on war things. I want a voucher for that $2800 for me, and each of my dependents. George Washington was opposed to standing armies. The second amendment means I am responsible for my own militia, that is why I have a clear right to my guns. It is a duty to be armed, and to make sure tyrants don’t run congress. I do not want any of my money going to Lockheed, Boeing, Pratt and Whitney or any other defense contractor. They are all inept, selling junk and are in reality on the dole. I can keep the terrorists away better than the pentagon, and their useless super weapons. In war, the militia is called out and an army raised, with no money more than 2 years.”

each of us must decide for ourselves and our family whether we continue the corporate agenda, or do what’s right. And that day may come soon. We know it, and we have our own integrity to protect, as well as our families and neighbors. Rest assured, we will do the right thing.” “Thumbs down to the person with the comment about the other lady at the Salem Transfer Station. She does her job. There where other people there, and you where throwing out wood. Next time tell the whole story.” “Thumbs up to that woman at the Salem Transfer Station. I find her to be professional and helpful.

“Thumbs down to Patrick McDougal. He claims he has no money for health insurance, but has money for political signs. I wonder if he knows that we have school buses that pick up children for school, so why is he taking his child to school?” “Thumbs down to the board of Selectman. They have news, but you can’t hear them when they speak. If they laugh or cough, you can really hear them through the microphone. Turn up the volume a little. Why don’t they put the water and sewer together repairing Pond Street, it will never pass. How many residents will have water and sewer? Good luck with having Pond Street reconstructed in 2013.” “Thumbs down The real estate agent, Diane LaConte, last week had an article in the Patriot about the property values in Salem are good and people should buy houses now for the low interest rates and making Salem sound rosy. What she should have added was a lot of things like that for the elderly, like myself, that we are struggling with property taxes. Some of us have to sell our homes and get out of Salem because of high property taxes. Living on a fixed income, you can’t pay taxes that high. She didn’t mention that in her article, she mentioned all the other stuff that she thought was good.” “Thumbs down to all the bleeding heart liberals that are totally worthless, but good on complaining.

“Thumbs down to the person who wrote, ‘the gas prices are sharply rising under Obama, and the liberal media mentions nothing.’ That makes you a liar, because gas prices on the rise have been in the news of late. Actually, six months ago, Fox News and other Republican critics where blaming Obama for rising gas prices. Then gas prices went down and no one credited Obama for that, of course. Lastly, comparing George Bush to Jesus tells us readers just what a nit-wit you really are!” “Thumbs down. My husband was just reading a comment in regards to Wanda at the dump. All summer long, my son and I have been doing a lot of work on our home here in Salem, and we go to the dump about 3-4 times per week to get rid of stuff. Everytime we leave there we say how kind she is. I’m not disabled and I’m not elderly. I’m 50 years old and my son is 18, and she is the most kind and helpful woman, and we say that every time we leave. Whoever left that comment is so wrong. He’s got the wrong person.” Thank you for your submissions. All comments, thumbs up or down, are anonymous and not written by the Salem Community Patriot staff.

By Jacob Gagnon True competitors are rarely content. That is why the Salem High School Field Hockey team is not going to depend on last season’s accomplishments for this year’s motivation. “Our goal is to improve on what we’ve done in the past,” said head coach John Gatsas. Two seasons ago, the Blue Devils made it to the semi-finals of the playoffs. They finished last season with a record of 11-2-1 and were ranked third in New Hampshire. Their championship hopes were dashed, however, following a devastating first-round defeat to Merrimack in the playoffs. While Gatsas and his team may never forget the loss, it is in their rear-view mirror as they prepare to make an even harder run at a state title. Gatsas is well aware of where his team needs to improve. “We’d like to become a more efficient team in scoring from the corners and aggressive play and moving the ball up the field,” said Gatsas. Salem will need production more than anything else this season, on both sides of the ball. Rachael Denning, Mikaela Gauvain, Brianna Rastelloare, Salem’s goalkeeper, and the twins, Danielle and Erika Smith, are all going to be crucial components in Gatsas’s championshipcaliber plans. After Gatsas and his coaching staff narrowed down the number of field hockey hopefuls from 55 to 41, they were ready to compete on Saturday, August 18th, in a jamboree in Keene. “We felt

Field Hockey’s Pursuit of Greatness Continues
pretty successful there. We played aggressive. We moved the ball up the field. We played the corners pretty well. So, we’re going in the right direction,” said Gatsas. There was another, somewhat surprising thing that happened in Keene. The youth of the team shined throughout the competition. “I was very impressed by some of the younger players.” The younger players not only hope to be the future of the Salem High School Field Hockey program, but the present as well. Most of them are currently vying for a spot on this season’s varsity roster. Lizzy Twoney, a forward, played aggressively and moved the ball up the field smoothly. Mikayla Ramstell, Alexandria Sirmaian and Aly Twoney all played strong, aggressive styles defensively that caught Gatsas’s eye. Salem’s solid jamboree performance set the tone for yet another successful season, with ever expanding hopes. “We need to keep our intensity up. I think that the players, especially the junior and senior class, are very dedicated to the hard work and are expecting to have a good season. (They) want to repeat on what we did last year and, hopefully, do even better,” said Gatsas. Not being satisfied with merely good Salem’s Field Hockey program will continue to strive to be great this season. Then again, the competitor’s spirit is never satisfied.

Blue Devils Boys’ Soccer is Staying Focused
by Jacob Gagnon Tunnel vision is the tendency to focus on a specific goal without letting peripheral distractions interfere. It is a philosophy that Salem High School Boys Soccer coach Anthony Karibian is embracing this season. “One game at a time. Every match we play, every event we have is just one day,” said Karibian regarding his young team’s motivation this season. His idea is to focus on specific elements in order to grow as a team. It is Karibian’s coaching style that the team hopes will propel them to the playoffs this season as well as maintaining an overall record above .500. While the youth of the squad may seem like a challenge, Karibian views it as an opportunity to start something special. “We have a lot of youngsters in the group so getting them up to speed is going to be important,” said Karibian. The Blue Devils, as well as Karibian, will be relying heavily on the veteran players to help guide the team. The team captains, Andrew Zani and Josh Given are already looked at to lead while also setting examples for the younger players that are coming up in the ranks. The Righini brothers, Todd and Darren, are also going to be pushed this season which Karibian believes will not be a problem for the tandem. “They are both attacking players.” “We have some very, very good technical players in our midfield. We have kids that can really shine on their own but we’ve also got players who are very athletic. A lot of different components working together,” said Karibian. “That’s our strength.” On Saturday, August 18, the Salem High School Boys Soccer team participated in a jamboree in Amherst. The team continued to work out its preseason kinks, a necessary process for all programs. Like always, Karibian had a plan for his team going into each section of the jamboree. “Each game was a different goal. Like let’s do this properly. Let’s spread the field properly. Let’s defend well,” said Karibian. The Blue Devils finished the afternoon with two wins and two losses. Most importantly, the event gave Karibian a feel for this season’s boys soccer team. According to Karibian, the boys still need to work on the defensive aspect of their play which will be a critical tool as the season progresses. From his “one game at a time focus”, however, Karibian was pleased with his squad’s performance. “We scored goals. We developed some good looking attacks,” said Karibian. The rest of the season, Karibian hopes, will be as focused a venture for Salem as the jamboree. That is how this team, Karibian’s team, will develop into a force in the New Hampshire high school soccer community. “Each game had a goal and that’s how we’ll get through the season.” The team will remain focused, their tunnel vision set for the next game, $ .99 while their minds can’t help but PROPANE 20lb. tank fill wander into the playoffs and We fill larger tanks up to 100lbs & RVs $1.84 /gal $1.96 beyond. price subject to change +/- .
