by Susan Miner Despite the fact that the Microsoft store does not open its doors at the Rockingham Mall until September 29, employees were already making a difference in the community. On September 7, about 40 employees gave a full day of work as a team at the Salem Boys & Girls Club. Denise Dolloff, Special Events Coordinator at the Boys & Girls Club of Salem, coordinated this effort with the Microsoft team. David Verheyen is the new Salem Store Leader and he said before Microsoft opens a new store, they coordinate with a worthy local organization, and give back to the community as a team. Employees in smaller groups also volunteer on a regular basis. All the Microsoft employees had on bright yellow shirts with the company logo on the front and the phrase “Microsoft gives back” on the back of the shirt. In addition to the company t-shirts, each employee wore a smile on their face. Merissa LivermoreJohnson belonged to the Greater Salem Boys and Girls Club when she was young. On Friday, she returned as a Microsoft employee giving back. It was a great example of life coming full circle. The Microsoft employees organized and catalogued all the childrens’ books, cleaned

Central Fire Department Honors Those Who were Lost on September 11
by Kristen Hoffman It was a quiet affair, broken only by five sharp rings of a fire bell for their fallen brothers. It was the only way to honor those who died in the line of duty 11 years ago. Central Fire Station held a solemn memorial for their brothers and sisters who died in the line of duty on September 11, 2001, on Tuesday. Nearly 30 members of the Department attended the observation. The service began promptly at 8:46 a.m., exactly 11 years after American Airlines Flight 11 struck the south tower of the World Trade Center. Assistant Chief Paul Parisi and Chief Kevin Breen recapped the events of September 11, 2001, while members of the Salem Fire Department bowed their heads in remembrance. “On September 11, 2001, members of the New York City Fire Department gathered for another day of work,” Breen said, adding that 343 men and women died in the line of duty. “We didn’t lose 343 members, one member died 343 times,” Breen said, furthering the solidarity shared throughout the brotherhood. Since the attacks, an additional 64 firefighters and other emergency personnel have died due to illnesses caused by the attacks, Parisi said. Many of men and women at ground zero fell ill with cancer in the years after the attack. Firefighter Brad Palmer signaled “5555,” the call that is sent out when a firefighter is killed in the line of duty. The call was followed by a minute of silence, concluding the ceremony. After the moment of silence, the team went back to work, further solidifying what it means to be part of the family: September 11 is just another day of work for the firefighters of America.

Primary Election Brings Good News For Incumbents

by S. Aaron Shamshoyan New and consolidated polling locations used in Tuesday’s primary led Town Moderator Christopher Goodnow to the term “The Change Election.” Voting at the Fisk School was busier then usual, as Soule School voters relocated to the facility. Town Hall and Barron School voters were not allowed to cast ballots at their usual locations, as a new polling location was set up at the Ingram Senior Center. “The results have exceeded our

Republican incumbents Bob Elliott (left) and Gary Azarian review the primary results after hearing word that they will be moving on to the general election in November. Azarian said concerns were raised from the low voter turnout but said campaigning hard paid off. Elliott agreed, adding, “out of almost 18,000 voters, only twenty percent showed up.” He said he was glad to see Azarian re-elected, and noted four of the candidates oppose gaming. expectations,” said Goodnow. Voters were also asked to provide identification prior to receiving a ballot. Beginning in November voters will need to provide photo identification before casting a vote, per a new state law. Goodnow said the state asked workers to begin the practice for primaries. Close to 20 percent of registered voters cast ballots. According to Goodnow, the turnout was typical of a primary. “From seven to eight was the slowest I’ve seen it for some time,” he said. Polls were open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Results were announced at the town hall around 10 p.m.

Republican incumbent John Sytek will also appear on the general election ballot in November

by S. Aaron Shamshoyan Only six months after final votes were taken at Salem’s final Second Deliberative Session, budget season has begun for Selectmen. Review of the proposed Police Department budget showed a $793,000 increase mostly due to personnel costs. Town Manager Keith Hickey explained renegotiated contracts eliminated sick leave buy-back increasing union members base pay. Selectman Stephen Campbell questioned the increase saying the proposal brought before the board previously would lower operating costs. “Yea, the contracts were supposed to save us money,” he said adding offsets were intended to come from other areas within the budget. Hickey responded saying the town broke even in 2012, but will not see significant savings in 2013-2014. He said reduced buy-outs and reduced caps would prove savings in out years, but a $320,000 increase in retirement costs was causing the budget to rise. The town manager also justified the increase saying the department will foot the bill for the school resource officers until revenues are received from the school district to offset the cost. Campbell questioned an 11.2 percent increase in holiday pay, saying officers could work too much and could get burned out. Hickey responded saying, “The ability to work holidays is a long standing practice.” “We couldn’t fix everything at once,” he added. Deputy Police Chief Shawn Patten explained a $138,000 increase in police support services. He said two record clerks were necessary for the department. He said reductions forced the department to close the record window and said the department is holding steady with staffing levels. Selectman Michael Lyons asked where the department felt challenged. “We do run a lot of overtime,” said Police Chief Paul Donovan. He also added replacement pay was taking a toll on the department. Patten said budget cuts forced the department to eliminate the former community services division. “There’s nothing left to buy stuff to give out,” he said. Patten also told selectmen the department receives weekly requests for officers to help at various events including driver’s education and noted the department can no longer hold their annual National Night Out. He said the summer youth program was being funded by increased donations from businesses in town. The department will also lease 12 new Ford Fusion police cruisers for the front line patrol cars. The new Fusions will replace aging vehicles with over 100,000 miles. The Fire Department also presented their budget to the board, asking for funds to replace a radio box received in the central station dispatch center. Fire Marshal Jeff Emanuelson explained the box would add two new frequencies to allow for additional alarms to be sent to the station. He explained the town currently monitors 489 master boxes, each handling up to 540 alarm systems. “We’re already in that non compliance area,” he said. The overload could lead to the department missing an alarm. Emanuelson said the department replaced a 20-yearold system in 2010, and this component would allow for more connections. “It will double our capacity,” he said. Emanuelson noted around $86,000 is received in alarm revenues and will help offset the cost of the upgrade. Currently the moneys go into the general fund. Funding for the town’s information technology services may also see an increase in 2013, as part of a contracted obligation to the current vendor. “The IT departments primarily made up of contractual services for the consultant Neoscope to continue managing IT operations for the Town of Salem,” said Hickey. A $29,400 increase in contracted IT services raised concerns for selectmen. Hickey said this was due largely to a cost of living increase built into the contract. Selectman Campbell questioned the 12.4 percent increase saying it seemed to be more then a cost of living expense. Hickey explained changes to the contract would increase the number of items covered under a maintenance agreement, saying printers were being added along with laptops in police cruisers. He said the cost of living increase would only total about three percent. Hickey also said $100,000 was being requested for capital improvements on the server room. He explained currently servers were being stored behind the collections department but insufficient cooling and a lack of emergency power were less then ideal. An original plan to move servers to the school districts newly constructed server room weren’t possible because of a lack of space, but Hickey said Neoscope was looking into the recreation director’s old office. Hickey also explained a server room could be constructed in the current location, but it would be the most costly option. Chairman Patrick Hargreaves questioned the size of the room. continued to page 8 - Department Budgets

Fifth Annual Benefit Ride in Memory of Chris Macy
Staff photos by Susan Miner

by Susan Miner Engines were roaring at the Derry-Salem Elks on September 8 in preparation for the Fifth Annual Benefit Ride in Memory of Chris Macy. Macy grew up and went to school in Salem, he was athletic and enjoyed music. Macy’s life ended on August 14, 2007, at the young age of 14. Profits from this year’s event will go to the playground fund at the Boys & Girls Club of Salem where a plaque in Chris’ name will be placed on the equipment once it is installed. Funds will also go to the Dollars for Scholars program as well as local youth sports. Registration started at 8 a.m. Denise Dolloff from the Boys and Girls Club along with Gloria DeFrancisco (motherin-law of Steve Ring who is the Director

of the Benefit) helped get registrations processed and t-shirts to the riders. Registrations were at approximately 78 this year which was up from last year by about 10 to 15. Coffee and doughnuts were served for the riders while they waited for the departure time to arrive. The morning started out humid and cloudy. The ride started at 9 a.m. promptly and just as the riders started their bikes to leave the parking lot the clouds broke and the sun began to shine. The riders drove up the Seacoast and stopped briefly at Wally’s in Hampton and then returned to DerrySalem Elks for a barbeque and lots of other good food and beverages. The George Williams band was cranking out the classic rock while the riders

enjoyed their meal. There were lots of generous donations from local businesses. There was a special raffle for just the riders which had 10 prizes which included items like the Richard Petty Driving Experience, a generator, Coliseum Restaurant gift certificate, T-Bones gift certificate, and other great gifts. There were lots of amazing items from Dick’s Dugout which were up for silent auction. In addition to the previously mentioned items, there were 25 additional items up for raffle. Chris’ parents Bryan and Deborah would like people to go join the Chris Macy Benefit Facebook page. Steve Ring, the Director of the event said he is glad the community is still working together even in this economy.

The Word Around Town...
Letters to our Editor
our way to recovery, 4.5 million jobs have been created in the private sector, tax cuts (stimulus) for middleclass families, 18 tax cuts for small businesses, payroll tax cut, financial aid and scholarships for students, raising standards for K through 12, protecting the environment and creating jobs while moving toward energy independence, repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, revised the Americans with Disabilities Act, troops home from Iraq, support for returning troops, Lilly Ledbetter Act, saved the automobile companies, the stock market is over 13,000 and my favorite, strengthen Medicare. Plus Obama sent in a team into Kazakhstan and dragged out 11 tons of weapons grade uranium and 3 tons of weapons grade plutonium. His team went to South Africa and Chile brought out all their nuclear material and “down blended,” de-weaponize it at a site run by the Atomic Energy Commission. His team is still chasing down loose nuclear material that is out in the ether. (google Obama Loose Nukes) Oh ya, he sent Seal Team Six after Osama Ben Ladan. We need to keep our gutsy President. Rebecca Fee, Salem

Waste, Fraud, and Greed
President Obama this past week said, “he had no problem taking $716 billion from Medicare to help fund Obama Care.” He went on to say, “he would make this money up by reducing fraud in Medicare.” Well, you know what we have been losing and continue to, lose one billion dollars a week, in Medicare, every week since President Obama, has been President. This ill-conceived procedure is an outright theft of money in phony programs developed by his Czar Administrators for Medicare. Mr. President, your record to save money is very poor. If you cannot stop these losses every week, how are you going to save up $716 billion to restore the future Medicare program to make it solvent for the people who paid into this program and our future retires? Three ways to make Medicare much better and available to seniors in the future is to abandon ObamaCare, a Big Government disaster, and restore the $716 billion back to Medicare fund. Then put into place the 10 free enterprise principal programs to strengthen government long term Medicare by the Romney/Ryan ticket for President. In addition we could create and hire thousands of honest collage graduates that need a job, to set up a private independent anti-fraud program for Medicare. (Program would more than pay for itself.) This would seriously go after the cheats and one billion dollars a week loss money being taken advantage of by the legalized crooks within and out of big government. Thus increasing the current (unapproved) budget to

over a trillion dollars per year for four straight years. Plus he has added five trillion dollars accumulative National debt since taken office. This country is about to be $16 trillion in Debt. Anyone with good reasoning can realize if we do not change from our present course, the Obama Administration will bankrupt America in less than four years. Was this a plan from the beginning to destroy America and install a socialism system? This out of control Big Government Liberal Obama spending must be reversed with people who really care about America, if its people are to remain free in America. Ed Brooks, Salem

Yes, We Are Better O Now

Studio 9
For a

Complete hair care for the whole family!

“Are you better off today than you were four years ago?” The answer is yes, even though some Republicans tried their best not to make it so. On January 20, 2009 (inauguration day) 19 Republican politicos met for a secret dinner in Washington, DC, to plot the destruction of President Obama (and the Country). Attending the dinner were House members Eric Cantor, Jeb Hensarling, Pete Hoekstra, Dan Lungren, Kevin McCarthy, Paul Ryan and Pete Sessions. From the Senate, Tom Coburn, Bob Corker, Jim DeMint, John Ensign and Jon Kyl, Newt Gringrich and Frank Luntz. The meeting lasted four hours and they came up with a plan. They would take back the House and use it to obstruct the President in every way they could to destroy the President. (Robert Draper: “Do Not Ask What Good We Do: Inside The House Of Representative.”) 9 N Broadway, Salem, NH 03079 These revelations are the first time 603 • 898 • 8911 we have evidence for the people of the United States to see that the ank you for GOP puts the party before country. your business! Remember, in the month of January 2009 the country lost nearly personalized style that’s as unique as you are! 800,000 jobs.

Had Republicans put the country first and passed the Grand Bargain, and 10 yea the American Jobs Act (paid for) in Bus rs iness! putting millions back to work with millions more spin off jobs, instead they voted several times to overturn Obamacare, many abortion bills, defunded Planned Parenthood, Ryan’s Personhood bill and 60 bills to name Post offices but zilch to save the Postal Service. In spite of all that the we’re on

Obama, He’s no Bill Clinton
Watching Bill Clinton at the convention, you realize how incompetent and divisive our President has become. During Bill Clinton’s tenure, he did raise taxes but he worked with the other party to reduce spending and put in a work requirement into welfare. The only similarities that I can see between the two is the raising of taxes. Obama has no clue on cutting spending and has promoted government dependency. He gives waivers to states to reduce workfare. This was a signature event during Bill Clinton presidency. Does anyone remember the “the era of big government is over” remark. The big difference I see between Bill Clinton and Barack Obama is one of attitude and competency. Bill Clinton praised success and worked with the other party to solve the nation’s problems. He certainly had more trouble with the other party than this president but he was a problem solver who knew how to negotiate. In the new Bill Woodward book, he notes that Obama has no clue in negotiating. I see more of Bill Clinton’s skills in Mitt Romney than Obama. Romney is a problem solver who worked with a Democratic legislature to get things accomplished. Never did I feel Bill Clinton was as divisive as the President. Look what the President has done. He has played the poor against the rich, races against each other, anti-business attitude, anti-Catholic, played the seniors against the young for health care, men against women, union against non union. Do I say more. Bill Clinton certainly had his battles with the other party but he somehow worked toward the good of the nation. Ask yourself the question, in your world, if you did the job Obama has done, would you still be working or would you be fired? As a skeptic of all politicians, I say it’s time let Obama to retire to start on new foundation and give Mitt Romney a chance. Matt Habinowski, Salem

been rectified by joining with Bathensna in 2011. Will Romney and the Republicans stay with their “if you can’t take care of yourself - you don’t count” philosophy and - as in the Republican Convention barely acknowledge the service our troops and Veterans have given for US - the American People? As I see it, our troops and Veterans deserve the best. For those injured in the line of duty, this is a responsibility we as Americans share. We must ensure their care and treatment. From the signals at the Republican Convention and the ruthlessness of the Ryan budget, I fear that Veterans’ medical benefits would be on the chopping block and caring for the troops would be minimal. After all, the Republican philosophy is “every person for themself.” If you are a Veteran or relative of someone in the military you must think about who you want as President. Romney/Ryan barely even mentioned our troops or Veterans at their convention. On August 12 President Obama signed an Executive Order - Improving Access to Mental Health Services for Veterans, Service Members and Military Families. The order expands suicide prevention programs and mental health care for service members, Veterans and their families. Over 1,600 mental health care providers will be hired and in place by June 2013, most of whom will themselves be Veterans, thus opening up job opportunities for Veterans. Obama has made a point of ensuring that services are in place to help Veterans coming back from active duty have help entering the workforce. This is the kind of caring and respect President Obama has shown for our troops, their families and our Veterans. Dee Lewis, Salem

Are We Better O Now an Four Years Ago?
Four years ago we were shedding 750,000 jobs per month and now we are adding 100,000 private sector jobs per month. The stock market was at historic lows and now is almost back to pre-recession levels. The American automobile industry was losing billions of dollars and was close to bankruptcy and today the three major manufacturers Ford, GM, and Chrysler are again profitable corporations. Real estate markets are beginning to improve and real estate values are increasing again. Manufacturing jobs are beginning to return to the United States at the highest rate since the 1990s. For the first time ever we have consensus on national curriculum standards as well as student achievement benchmarks in mathematics and science education and an administration committed to implementing them. Millions of American now have access to healthcare insurance that did not four years ago and do not have to worry about exclusion because of a pre-existing condition. We have a President committed to protecting Medicare and Social Security. I feel better now than four years ago knowing that Osama bin Laden and his henchmen are being delivered to justice by a Presidential administration committed to protecting the American people. I also feel better that we are out of Iraq, a questionable war that cost many lives and was not even paid for by the previous administration. I also feel better knowing that we have a President who understands that the key returning full prosperity to the country lies in rebuilding the middle class and also is committed to tax policies that are built on the premise of everyone paying their fair share. There is a long way to go for a full economic recovery but we should not go down the supply side nonsense road that got us into this mess in the first place. John Mosto, Salem

“Everyone For emselves,” Mantra Puts Veterans at Risk
One thing that struck me about the Republican convention - in all the rhetoric there was very little reference to our Troops and Veterans! One of the most important jobs of the President is his “Commander in Chief ” role. Michelle and Barack Obama have - from the very beginning - focused on and supported our warriors, their families, and our Veterans. One of the “disasters” Obama inherited in the legacy of the Bush administration (scandal of 2007) were the abysmal conditions at Walter Reed Hospital – supposedly the primo site for caring for wounded soldiers and Veterans. That situation under Obama has

Sarah Rastello Receives ‘Volunteer of the Year’ Award from Greater Salem Chamber of Commerce
by Mary Reese Five years ago, when the Greater Salem Chamber of Commerce’s Hidden Jewel event was first conceptualized, committee chair Sarah Rastello’s vision was a celebration of women in the community who go above and beyond in helping others. While there are many individuals who fit that description, her intent was to find the unspoken heroes who are motivated by the satisfaction of their contribution and not by recognition. “These women are working hard at making a difference silently and are the hidden jewels within our community,” said Rastello. Over the last four years 35 women have been recognized at a luncheon as “Hidden Jewels.” Through Sarah’s determination to honor those who give back she is being recognized for the same qualities she admires in the Hidden Jewel recipients as this year’s recipient of the Salem Chamber’s Volunteer of the Year award. Sarah has spent the last five years of her 27year banking career at Salem Co-operative Bank as Vice President of Retail Administration and Business Development. The Volunteer of the Year is selected by Donna Morris, the Executive Director of the Greater Salem Chamber of Commerce. “Sarah was selected to receive this year’s award in acknowledgement of the instrumental role she has played in creating and implementing the Chamber’s Hidden Jewel event, now in its fifth year. The Chamber is thrilled to honor Sarah. Her efforts have allowed for the recognition of the “precious jewels” who, like Sarah herself, give unselfishly. Sarah has been instrumental in bringing awareness to the important role women have in enriching our local community,” Morris said. Seven women will be recognized at this years’ fifth celebration on October 17 at the Merrimack Valley Golf Club. Stoneyfield’s Meg Hirshberg, freelance writer and author of “For Better or For Work – A survival Guide,” is the featured speaker. “We are not surprised to hear that Sarah is being honored with this award” Ann Lally, President of Salem Co-op Bank stated. “Sarah is the first to step up when there is an opportunity to help others and gives generously of her time. We are very proud of her.” In addition to Rastello’s work with the Hidden Jewel event she also serves on the board of the Greater Lawrence (MA) Department of Children and Families, and donates her time to the Salem Relay for Life, and the Greater Haverhill Children’s Fund. Rastello is quick to acknowledge that she has been fortunate to work for a business that allows her the time and resources to dedicate to the organizations she chooses to support. “Salem Co-op is very generous to the organizations that I am involved with.” While discussing the award she is receiving Rastello’s passion for the Hidden Jewel event and other organizations she is involved Sarah Rastello, Greater Salem with in the community is evident.

“The Hidden Jewel recipients are the silent heroes within our community which make significant contributions without seeking recognition for their efforts. Some of the women don’t even recognize their own contribution and how much good they have done. The Hidden Jewel event is empowering to women; providing recognition, networking, and an opportunity to celebrate those who do so much for our community.” Sarah Rastello
When asked about the work she has done she naturally shifts the recognition away from herself and praises other women who are admirable and have made a significant contribution to the community. Sarah also credits her family for their support which allows her to be generous with her time and talent. “My husband’s support and my kids help over the years has allowed me to spend time doing things that I am passionate about.” Rastello lives in Methuen, MA, with her husband Bernie and two sons Ryan and Brendan and will be receiving the Volunteer of the Year award at the Salem Chamber’s Annual Dinner on September 19 at The Castleton Banquet and Conference Center.

Ararat Armenian Church to Hold Annual Shish Kebob Supper
submitted by Linda Ferragamo The Ararat Armenian Congregational Church in Salem will hold its annual Shish Kebob Supper on Saturday, September 29, from 4:30 to 7 p.m. The dinner will take place at the church, which is located at 2 Salem Street in Salem. The Ararat Church is New Hampshire’s only Armenian church. In the late 1800s, Armenian refugees came to America in order to establish themselves in a place where they could work and live in a free society. These newcomers wished to practice their religion as well as nurture and preserve their precious Armenian culture. It 1912, a group of individuals in Salem met to establish a church where they could nurture their faith and maintain and preserve their Armenian culture and traditions. Help was attained from the Congregational Conference (today known as the United Church of Christ), and a land grant was obtained from the Northeastern Street Railway Company. Within a short time the church was built, and the building was dedicated in November 1913. For nearly a century, the church has participated in the life of Salem’s community, and shared its cultural heritage by hosting an annual shish kebob supper. The photo accompanying this article was taken at a shish kebob supper held in June 1955, and was published in a local paper at that time. Church moderator John Janigian reports that all church members participate in hosting the shish kebob supper. Children assist with cleaning up, setting tables, and serving soda and coffee. Adults work the grill, make the pilaf, fill the plates and sell tickets. Every household contributes to the bake sale. In 2011, there was much disappointment in the church community when the shish kebob supper had to be cancelled due to a defect in the church’s stove. Thanks to a grant from the Armenian Missionary Association of America, the stove has been replaced and preparations are being made for an evening of delicious food and fellowship. Proceeds from this year’s supper will go towards the cost of replacing the church’s steps. As the church is now 99 years old, the building requires frequent repairs and renovations. The menu on September 29 will consist of lamb or chicken kebob dinner, rice pilaf, salad, pita bread and dessert. Take out is available and all are welcome. Moderator John Janigian urges the community to stay tuned for the Ararat Church’s 1 00th birthday celebration, coming in 2013.

Congressman Charles Bass Speaks at September Salem Republicans Meeting
by Susan Miner United States Representative Charlie Bass was the guest of honor at the Salem Republican’s September meeting. Chairman David Garcia introduced congressman Bass. Congressman Bass discussed the current administrations view on the current state of affairs. Congressman Bass told the crowd “What’s refreshing and exciting about the candidacy of Mitt Romney is he says no! We don’t have to accept the new normal, American’s don’t have to accept the fact that unemployment is above eight percent for the Congressman Bass discussed his run longest period of time since the for re-election. great depression.” “Mitt Romey’s slogan is a path to prosperity.” Congressman Bass went on to discuss about when the Republicans take over in January there will be a completely different direction for this nation. He discussed his opponent’s latest negative campaign as well as why he is running for re-election. He feels Salem and the towns along the border will mean the difference in the election. The congressman stated that he has never needed their help more than he does today. He doesn’t want this district represented by somebody who supported Mark Fernald against Jeanne Shaheen for Governor because he was for a 5 percent across the board income tax for New Hampshire. Congressman Bass is running at least one more time to make sure that America is safe and strong and secure and prosperous and free for his children. Congressman Bass discussed his going door-to-door talking to people. He also encouraged people to take and display lawn signs. There was some discussion from the attendees about the Democratic party, the lame duck session and how Congressman Bass is not for raising taxes especially in an economy like this. Health care was discussed and the possibility of selling it like insurance and creating competition for providers. Social security was also discussed and how it is now drawing down the trust fund so there is no surplus any more.

Congressman Bass speaks with an attendee of the September Salem Republican Meeting.

Civil Liberties Examined at Lecture

Department Budgets - continued from front page
The town manager said Neoscope recommended a 10 by 15 foot room. “The recreation director’s room is just about perfect,” he said. The space would provide for sufficient access to the front and back of the machines and could be fitted with climate control. Campbell opposed the plan saying he wanted more information regarding what would be purchased and what would be done. “I can’t see telling people they should pay $100,000 without some firm plan,” he said. Selectman James Keller said a plan should involve server racks, HVAC, and back up power. Hickey said Neoscope would determine the specs and the project would later go out to bid. He noted the town could be eligible for a 5050 match on a generator, as it would power equipment necessary for the Fire Department to run at full capacity. He said Fire Chief Kevin Breen was looking into the possibility. Hickey also told selectmen the town hadn’t purchased PCs in three years and was looking for direction on a replacement cycle.

The audience listens in as Professor Richard A. Hesse explains his points on national security and civil liberties. by AJ Dickinson One of the biggest controversies in is civil rights versus national security. Due to the anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, Professor Richard A. Hesse volunteered to speak about the current state of affairs. He held a lecture, “Civil Liberties versus National Security” at the Salem Historical Society on Tuesday night. The Georgetown University Professor had begun his speech by entertaining the fact that with heightened security comes less liberty, and with greater liberty comes less security. In the past decade we have experienced a “war on terror” and we will continue to experience a “war on terror” but should this mean we should also be experiencing the lack of liberty it brings us. If you look in the past at what had formerly been done as our country faced terror and fear we can see that during World War II for example President Roosevelt had issued an executive order in which allowed for the incarceration of 120,000 people of Japanese decent, “an example of a discreet problem which came to a discreet end in which the rights were restored following the events,” said Hesse. But if we are always in a constant state of war, than aren’t we giving up liberties in which we might never re-gain. Yet, do Americans hear debates on these policies being adopted in order to protect our national security? Do we have a voice in setting these policies? Just look at how much the Patriot

SHS Student Named Semifinalists in National Merit Scholarship Program
submitted by National Merit Scholarship Corporation Officials of National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) have announced the names of approximately 16,000 Semifinalists in the 58th annual National Merit Scholarship Program including Salem High School student Neal P. Foley. These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 8,300 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $32 million that will be offered next spring. To be considered for a Merit Scholarship® award, Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition. About 90 percent of the Semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and more than half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar title. Steps in the 2013 Competition About 1.5 million juniors in more than 22,000 high schools entered the 2013 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2011 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®), which served as an initial screen of program entrants. The nationwide pool of Semifinalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest scoring entrants in each state. The number of Semifinalists in a state is proportional to the state’s percentage of the national total of graduating seniors. To become a Finalist, the Semifinalist and their high school must submit a detailed scholarship application in which they provide information about the Semifinalist’s academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, and honors and awards received. A Semifinalist must have an outstanding academic record throughout high school, be endorsed and recommended by a high school official, write an essay, and earn sat scores that confirm the student’s earlier performance on the qualifying test. From the approximately 16,000 Semifinalists, about 15,000 are expected to advance to the Finalist level and in February they will be notified of this designation. All National Merit Scholarship winners will be selected from this group of Finalists. Merit Scholar designees are selected on the basis of their skills, accomplishments, and potential for success in rigorous college studies, without regard to gender, race, ethnic origin, or religious preference. National Merit Scholarships Scholarships that will be awarded on a state representational basis. About 1,000 corporatesponsored Merit Scholarship awards will be provided by approximately 240 corporations and business organizations for Finalists who meet their specified criteria, such as children of the grantor’s employees or residents of communities where sponsor plants or offices are located. In addition, about 200 colleges and universities are expected to finance some 4,800 college-sponsored Merit Scholarship awards for Finalists who will attend the sponsor institution.

Professor Richard A. Hesse closing his lecture Act of 2001 suffocated our civil rights, a massive bill in which included changes in 370 different laws effecting “national security” but at the cost of our liberty. Politicians should be the very people who pay attention to the delicate balance between our security and our liberty. Hesse’s point does not argue that there is no real need for steps to protect our national security. But that there should be due attention paid to our right to privacy.

*Try out alternatives: We may not like them, but we all become attached to our habits and routines, and it can be hard to see alternatives. Trying out new things, even once, can open your eyes to great possibilities. For example, when it’s time to do research for a homework assignment, do you automatically go to the same search engine for help? Most people visit the same sites and use the same resources because it’s what they’re used to. But, is there a better alternative? To see for yourself go to www.bing.com and take the Bing It On Challenge. You might be surprised the impact one small change can make during homework time. There are many other ways to shape up your family’s homework habits. Try changing homework time to after dinner instead of right after school, when kids are itching to burn off energy. Or, if children are dragging at the dinner table to avoid doing homework, set a time limit for dinner. “Procrastination at the dinner table often led to late-night homework sessions at our house, leaving everyone tired and slow the next morning,”; adds Gurry. “To combat the problem, we started using a timer, giving ourselves 25 minutes to eat, once dinner is served. Once time is up, the table is cleared for homework. This minor change has given us back an extra 30 minutes each night before bedtime.” *Add in rewards: A great way to overcome bad habits is to integrate a rewards system. If your child usually feels like plopping down on the couch and zoning out instead of completing a reading assignment, give him/her a reward for doing the right thing, such as a call to grandparents or a family bike ride. Rewards are important because they help reinforce good behavior and keep everyone motivated to stick with the new routine. Bad habits may be hard to break, but with a few simple steps, you can weed out routines that are slowing your family down and be on your way to a happier, better life. - ARA Content

Thumbs Up?
“Thumbs down to those people who use this forum to complain, but yet do nothing to come forward and bring about change. It’s easy to hide behind a computer screen and complain about people. However, if you really want to make a difference, try having the courage to come forward and speak up in person. You’ll find out people aren’t as horrible as you think!” aware of the truth. These ladies do the research and what they print are the facts. Thumbs down to the person who feels they ‘knit pick Romney’. If you feel you know better why not write the specifics instead of trashing two women who care about other people bringing awareness to the readers. My name is Jane Lang and I am not hiding behind this column.” “Thumbs down to the remark that Jeanne Shaheen ‘stated at the Obama campaign visit in Windham regarding the attack on Osama Bin Laden.’ Fact is, she was not at the rally in Windham and never made that remark. Lie after lie. Know what you are talking about before you make a statement such as that. Back it up with facts. None of it is true.” “Thumbs up to the two drivers on Haverhill Road who stopped to help me and my running partner on Saturday. You’ll be happy to know she is doing well despite a concussion and broken nose. And just a note to all the drivers out there - be careful of the runners who share the road with you! I can’t tell you how scary and dangerous it is as a runner; the shoulder is not safe enough for a driver texting and speeding. But, when you are running high mileage, like training for a marathon as we are doing, you need to run outside and the only place to run is on the roads.”

Thumbs Down?
here is what you stand for: if anyone is against gay marriage you are labeled a homophobe, if you are for legal immigration and against the dream act you are anti-immigrant and a racist, if you vote against Barrack, you are a racist, if you do not believe that government should pay for birth control, then you are anti-women. Nice platform. You all should be really proud.” “Thumbs down. Patrick McDougall is a bully. He, I am sure, was raised that way and it continues as an adult. What’s wrong Patrick? Daddy didn’t love you as a kid? Someday you will bully the wrong person, and that is sad for your family. You need to resign asap. You embarrass me as a rep. We, the people in Salem, do not want you here anymore. Time to give it up.” “Thumbs up to Congressman Charlie Bass for what you have done in the past and I know you will always be there and never let us down! You are a friend of many including veterans who have served their country! You are there for those who are having times of trouble and are greatly appreciated! Best wishes in 2013 and beyond!” “Thumbs down to Rep Charlie Bass. Mr. Bass is conning us all implying that voucher care is ‘saving’ Medicare. Voucher care like Medicare Advantage is welfare for big insurance, adding costs to senior health care including executive salaries, unproductive overhead and monopoly profits while seniors lose money as their premiums to big insurance rise out of control. Voucher care is not choice, it is not saving Medicare, it is US seniors and their Medicare being thrown to the wolves of the health insurance cabal. There is no market in delivering health care to aging people.” “Thumbs down to the person who was critical of Dee Lewis and me you don’t know us. I am not angry I am sad, that the GOP a once grand party has resorted to lying about themselves and their opponent. When Romney and the Republicans stop lying about President Obama I will stop telling the truth about Romney/Ryan.” “Thumbs down. To the seniors of Salem, the politicians that are coming to town now want your vote and they could care less what’s happening. I think that some of the taxes that we are receiving at a certain age are absolutely horrendous. The school tax alone, if they gave us that, after taking care of 4-5 generations of kids going through school and living in the town yourself for 45 years, you’ve done your share. To hear these people say, ‘it’s for the children’, that is so horrendously stupid now! We’ve done our share. We’ve taken care of these kids, and a lot more than ours, but they can go ahead and make additions to the school and everything. Well, you can’t spend money you don’t have and that’s just what’s happening to some of our seniors.” “Thumbs up. The Patriot is doing a fantastic job and gives us a chance to vent. When the liberals come to town, and I’m registered Independent, but have you noticed the people coming to town, they approach G.E. the Police Dept, the Fire Dept, the Postal Dept, the teachers, then they go to senior who can’t get out, and have to listen to them and then they approach the college students. I ask you, what do they all have in common? They are used to being led. The liberals don’t want us to think, they want someone to lead us through everything and take their word for it. I’m sorry but if the liberals are going start throwing mud every time they open their mouths, then lets fight fire with fire.” “Thumbs down to Charlie Bass for trying to take Social Security away. Why would anybody that gets Social Security or Medicare want to vote for Charlie Bass when he wants to get rid of it? That’s just plain crazy!” “Thumbs up to Clint Eastwood for speaking the truth at the Republican National Convention. We the people are the government. We hire politicians to work for us. If they don’t do the job, we fire them! In November, let’s tell Barack Obama and his colleagues to take a hike back to Chicago.” “Thumbs down to the senior citizens on Medicare that think that Romney and Ryan are going to help them. Must have Alzheimer’s. Instead they’re going make you pay more and take away from you more. Better think about it before you vote.” “Thumbs up to three of the five selectman, and I’m not talking about Steven Campbell or Everett McBride. It seems like Steven Campbell and his buddy, Everett McBride, wants one in forty to be able to do 20 different jobs, pay them nothing, give them no benefits and expect stellar performance. Steven Campbell is out of touch with reality.” “Thumbs down to Hickey. You are so cruel. I don’t know how you can sleep at night. You’re taking away our transportation. How can you sleep and not worry about the elderly who can’t get to their doctor’s or dentists appointments. Maybe your mom could be in our place. How much did you pay for all the chairs that you and the selectmen have in the town meeting room? I believe that they cost more than $48,000. Get real, help us poor people. We pay when we get on and off the bus. Give us a break. You’re like a scrooge to us. Shame on you.” “Thumbs down to the thugs that stole my street’s ‘Defeat Obama’ sign. I hope the owners roll the next one in Poison Ivy for you to enjoy.” Thank you for your submissions.

“Thumbs down to the owner of the old railroad car barn on Main Street. That building is such an important part of Salem’s history and yet it’s covered with graffiti, littered with broken down construction equipment and covered with faded old signs. Stop into the old depot building and look at the photos of what a glorious looking building that once was. Now in your care it’s starting to look like the old Coca Cola plant.” “Thumbs down to the Salem Town Manager for even thinking of cutting the CART program that is so needed for the elderly and disabled in Salem. Many who have and still pay taxes! You cannot get around this town without a car and who can afford a taxi? If you use a wheelchair, forget about a taxi even if you could afford one. Here is an idea for the Selectman. Take the money out of the Town Managers salary, or better yet, get a new Town Manager who cares about the citizens and hire one with compassion and for less money.” “Thumbs down. Just read where the Merrimack NH Police Dept. are looking for 10 volunteers to help with clerical, data entry, filing, etc. - Bravo to them for realizing that we can’t keep hiring people with benefits - there are plenty of highly experienced individuals that would relish this in our Town. Wake up and start saving $$$ instead of spending, spending, spending.” “Thumbs down to all the Salemhaven staff that use the town hall grounds as their smoking area. Shame on you! I personally don’t appreciate smelling your nasty cigarettes, and I have noticed this to become a daily rountine between the hours of 1 and 2 p.m. Some of you even sit in your cars along with parked vehicles while people that are doing business there are getting in and out of their vehicles! This is unacceptable and should not be allowed!” “Thumbs up to Rebecca ‘Becky’ Fee and Dee Lewis for addressing the issues with their Letters to the Editor making us

“Thumbs up to the Dick Act of 1902 (the Efficiency of Militia Bill H.R. 11654), of June 28, 1902 invalidates all so-called gun-control laws. The militia encompasses every able-bodied male between the ages of 18 and 45. All members of the unorganized militia have the absolute personal right and second Amendment right to keep and bear arms of any type, and as many as they can afford to buy. The Dick Act of 1902 cannot be repealed; to do so would violate bills of attainder and ex post facto laws.” “Thumbs down. It is imperative that all citizens should know that are military are being prevented from voting in the upcoming November election due to a gross violation in the 2009 Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment Act. This indicates the Obama administration has failed to protect the voting rights of our military that in fact and without a doubt made voting possible in this country. This is an outrage and we should all contact our Congressmen/women and Senators to express our disgust and to resolve such a disgraceful situation. Why would any President allow this to happen?” “Thumbs down. If you are a liberal progressive

by Ron Penczak The Salem Police Department is looking to identify the suspect shown in the photographs. This suspect stole a wallet that held a number of credit cards from an individual in the NH State Liquor store in Salem. This incident occurred on October 16, 2011, at approximately 9:35 a.m. The suspect used the credit cards of the victim at Discount State Line Liquor, Target and Macy’s Department store in Salem. He also used the victim’s credit cards at two gas stations and at Target in Methuen. The suspect is described as being a white male, with light facial hair, 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet 1 inch, and brown hair that is slightly longer in the back. While in the NH State Liquor store he was observed wearing a red bandana. The suspect then switched to a dark colored baseball cap that appears to have a logo on the front that is similar to a University of Texas Longhorn or possibly a galloping mustang mascot of some type when using the stolen credit cards. He was wearing tennis shoes or Van’s (skateboarder type sneakers). The left shoe appears to have white shoelaces and his right shoe appears to have black shoelaces. The suspect was operating a gray late model Jeep Cherokee/four-door with a roof rack and dark tinted windows. The Jeep may have damage to the left corner of the rear bumper. If anyone has any information about the suspect you are encouraged to call Crimeline of Southern New Hampshire at 893-6600 or 800-498-4040 or go online to www.crimelinesnh.com. Callers remain anonymous and are issued a secret number known only to them and Crimeline. Callers are eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000 from Crimeline of Southern NH.

Volleyball Showcases Potential in Win Over Memorial

Blue Devils Field Hockey Lose to Memorial in Overtime
Memorial’s goal. “I thought we played pretty well,” said Gatsas. “We played more defense in the second half and we did a nice job with that.” Senior Danielle Donovan led the Blue Devils defensively all game, as did what Gatsas refers to as “the usual suspects,” who the team depends on to deliver every time they step on the field. Chantalle Dumont, Kiley Keenan, Erika and Danielle Smith, Abbey Raymond and, obviously, Gauvain, all had strong games on both sides of the ball. Senior Brianna Rastello had another impressive outing in between the pipes for the Blue Devils. It is a team that appears to be getting better every contest although with a second consecutive overtime loss, it can be difficult to look past that and focus on the positives. “We just got to be more aggressive in going after that ball and knocking it in,” said Gatsas. Gatsas noticed that his team had a tendency to reach for the ball during scoring opportunities as opposed to pushing and shoving the ball through to make the Crusader’s goalie work. There were numerous occasions on Friday when the Blue Devils had a chance in front of Memorial’s goal that they could not take advantage of. “It was disappointing. We really wanted to win it. It was a game we were all looking forward to,” said junior Alexandra Breen. The goal for the Blue Devils and for Gatsas is to use these close, heartbreaking losses as fuel to move forward. “We learned from today that we need to keep our intensity up throughout the entire game,” said Chantalle Dumont. “Overall, I was just happy with the performance,” said Gatsas. Salem High School Field Hockey will need to edge out their opponents in the close contests if they are to have a future in the postseason. Gatsas knows how hard his team is working; he just hopes that the team’s record will reflect that. “I think we’re going to get it eventually. But we have to get it sooner, rather than later.”

by Jacob Gagnon When Salem High School Girls Volleyball Coach John Roemer promised that his squad of girls would progress at a scary-fast rate, it may have been easy to dismiss it as a coach’s overconfidence. After watching the Blue Devils dominate Memorial High School on Wednesday, September 5, in three straight sets, it is difficult to dismiss the talent that Roemer is coaching. “I think they played together as a team. They kind of talked more today. They started playing where they should have played,” Salem’s Hannah O’Shaughnessy knocks the ball over Memorial’s net. said Roemer. “(There was) more aggressive defense today, more aggressive offense.” The Blue Devils won the first two sets by nearly 15 to get used to each other, all the moving parts points each. It was not until the last set that the together,” said Roemer. “We still need to improve Crusaders fired back, mounting some offense of on defense, our hitting abilities, picking up shots, their own. being more aggressive.” After taking a 16-12 third set lead, Memorial’s Salem High girls will not use their win over attack was stopped by timely Salem defense Memorial just for confidence.

Danielle Smith prepares to strike the ball during Friday’s loss to Memorial by Jacob Gagnon On Friday evening, September 7, Salem High School Field Hockey team was faced with a decision as Manchester Memorial High School scored the first goal of the contest early in the first half. They had to regroup or accept defeat. Just as they have shown all season through reinvigorated aggression, they chose the former. “They picked it up themselves. They knew what they had to do,” said Salem Field Hockey coach John Gatsas. Despite pushing their opponents to the absolute limit, the Blue Devils could not overcome the Crusaders in overtime. Memorial defeated Salem, 2-1, at Chabot-McDonough Field in Manchester. “We had scoring opportunities but we just didn’t capitalize on them,” said Gatsas. When Memorial broke the scoring barrier 10 minutes into the game, flashbacks of last season’s 1-0 defeat served as motivation for Gatsas and his team. “I think that all kicked in there,” said Gatsas. The Blue Devils played more intensely following the goal and got a point on the board when junior Mikaela Gauvain fired a shot past the

Boys Soccer Falls to Memorial 1-0
by Jacob Gagnon The Salem High School Boys Soccer team suffered another close loss this season, this time to Manchester Memorial High School, 1-0, on Wednesday, September 5, in Manchester. The difference, according to Salem Head Coach Anthony Karibian, was the Blue Devils’ inability to play as a team. “We had eleven good players out there, and they had one team. They were more organized. In the end, that organization beat us,” said Karibian. It is a problem that Salem High plans to work through as the team will move past the string of tough losses. “I think we played well at times, but it certainly wasn’t enough to get the job done,” said Karibian. The first half belonged to Memorial as scored early on the only goal they would need in the contest. The Crusaders defense was able to neutralize Salem’s attacks throughout that first half. It was not until the second frame of play that Salem played a team, eager to score and hungry for a victory. The Blue Devils were able to penetrate that Crusader’s heavy defensive armor, at times, but could not capitalize on the opportunities they had worked for all game. Karibian blames that on a composure that he hopes will strengthen as the season progresses. ”We got the ball a lot and mostly in their half. We win the ball, we get it forward, and then

Todd Righini moves the ball forward in a loss against Memorial. we lack composure,” said Karibian. “We can grow from that. That’s important and I think that’s what we’re going to take away from this game.” Salem High School’s defense has looked solid so far this season. Senior captain Andrew Zani, played well between the pipes, a place he has looked comfortable all year. Sophomore Brett Greeney impressed his squad at the center back position, a spot that Karibian admits is not easy for a younger player. “He won every ball that came near him,” said Karibian. The Righini brothers, once again, shined for the Blue Devil offense, often finding breaks in Memorial’s defense to move the ball along. As the time was running out and Coach Karibian perpetual shouts from the sidelines telling his team that “they’ve got to want it,” the Blue Devils earned themselves a chance to even the score. A penalty shot late in the game for Todd Righini would have tied the game up if it were not for an excellent, diving stop from the Crusader goalkeeper. The stop dashed the final hopes of the Blue Devils, although Salem continued hustling after the ball until the whistles ending the game sounded. “We definitely kept playing, kept plugging away, we just couldn’t get that final ball,” said Karibian. “We build our composure, build our organization, we’ll be in good shape,” said Karibian. The loss to Memorial is now in the past for the Blue Devils. They will remember the mistakes and the missed shots. They will grow from them. Salem High will leave the memory of this loss behind like a hermit crab shedding its shell. Karibian and his Salem Boys Soccer team are ready to move on.
