Hudson Fire and Police Personnel
Assist NY/NJ in Recovery Efforts
by Len Lathrop
When tragedy happens in our country, Hudson Firefghters step up
to help those in trouble.
This year, our Firefghters were joined by Hudson Police as they
traveled to New York and New Jersey to assist in the recovery efforts
from Hurricane Sandy.
The group left Saturday at 7 a.m. from the Central Fire Station
with their personal trucks loaded with supplies and equipment to
assist. Hudson had coordinated their efforts with the New York City
Firefghters Brotherhood, who assigned them work locations and

Between raising funds for their
project and purchasing items these
moms have been busy. Their energy
could be seen on Sunday morning at
the Hudson American Legion where
they and their friends and families
gathered to package and ship supplies
and goody boxes to our servicemen.
When the tables were empty there
were 213 boxes ready to be shipped on
Tuesday.
The Moms want to thank all the
volunteers who make this effort
possible. They will continue to collect
items all year. If you want to become
involved there is a drop box at Donna’s
Place on Lowell Road.

At around 2 o’clock Friday afternoon chants of “B-R-O-N-C-O-S”
and “SENIORS” could be heard echoing throughout Alvirne’s parking
lot. Upon entering the jam packed gymnasium the deafening noise
only grew louder, causing the ground to actually tremble. And yes,
in true AHS “spirit week” pep-rally tradition there were games to
be played. Shenanigans that have grown to be a part of who AHS
students really are such as the very popular “tug of war” or the
“grape fruit challenge” which students representing each class stand
in a line passing along a grapefruit using only their chins. Yet almost
as quickly as the rally started, it had ended, somewhat foreshadowing
the students high school careers.
As the seniors proudly walked toward the exit, they slowly
took one last look at what was their fnal “Spirit Week Rally” after
briefy glancing at their NHIAA sportsmanship award. Some, with
compassion in their eyes hugged one another, cracking a smile or
two as they reminisced on past memories. Seniors like class of

Saying Goodbye with Spirit
by Michael Linehan
Tuesday’s meeting witnessed the return of
Chairman Coutu to the board after medical leave.
In addition to the previously-scheduled agenda, the
selectmen tackled the remaining line items to wrap
up the review for the 2014 town budget. The night,
however, wasn’t without some debate.
“Our town’s most valuable asset is our
employees,” Coutu stated. He went on to give an
impassioned testimony about how, from what he
saw of the televised deliberations from previous
meetings, the selectmen had neglected their
duties in properly accessing the recommendations
from department heads. Coutu also stated that
they needed to stop threatening the jobs of town
employees and that these individuals deserved
better treatment and consideration.
Some of the other members went on the
defensive, among them Selectman Luszey. He
argued the importance of their position and that
they didn’t need to add more people to put on
the budget. Selectman Maddox supported Luszey
on this issue and pointed out, “We have good
department heads, but it’s our job to ask them
the tough questions.” The tension in the room
eventually eased before the board continued with
their meeting.
In wrapping up the budget review, the selectmen
touched upon the new tax of $6.29 which is a
.4% percent increase. Furthermore, there is over
$13 million contained in the revenue budget.
The board also unanimously voted to pass
recommendations on to the voters to approve a
2 percent wage and beneft increase for the Town
Clerk/Tax Collector as well as other Non-Union
Personnel in warrant article format.
As for new business, a proposal was made to
recommend a new ordinance to the Benson Park
Committee to ban smoking in the park’s playground
area. The board accepted a generous donation of
two white oaks and one bloodgood Japanese maple
from Countrybrook Farms Nursery and Garden.
To conclude the meeting before entering into
non-public session, the selectmen expressed their
sincere gratitude to those citizens who came out to
vote in last week’s election.

A Debt That Should Not Be Forgotten
by Len Lathrop
The Merrimack River quietly received the
wreath that the American Legion had launched
from Veterans Memorial Bridge as the Legion
fring squad and offcers paid homage to those
who serviced our country and to those still
serving. Since 1987 the Legion has celebrated
those who serviced here and abroad. Our nation
began celebrating Armistice Day to commemorate
the armistice signed between the allies of World
War I and Germany at Compiègne, France, for
the cessation of hostilities n the Western Front of
World War I. After World War II, the name of the
holiday was changed to Veterans Day. Veterans
Day should not be confused with Memorial Day;
Veterans Day celebrates the service of all, while
Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men
and women who died serving our country.
After the salute at the bridge, the Honor
Guard visited the other memorial in Hudson
and offered the same gratitude and respect for
those who have served. Members of the Honor
guard this Veterans Day were Valerie Harnadek
Post Commander, Mike Morin, Mike Mondo,
George Rowe, Mike Millette, George Fournier, Bill
Barnett, and Alden True

MooreMart’s Veterans Day Packing Event
Celebrates the Packing of the 50,000th Care Package!
submitted by MooreMart
On November 10 MooreMart volunteers
meet at the Nashua National Guard Armory
to collect donated supplies and pack and
ship care packages to members of the
United States Armed Services serving in
the Middle East. MooreMart is a non-proft
volunteer organization that was founded
in 2004 by Paul and Carole Moore as a
way of showing their
support for his brother
Brian who at that time
had been deployed to
the Middle East with the
New Hampshire National
Guard.
The milestone occurred
just days before Veterans
Day. On November 10
MooreMart volunteers
packed and shipped 3,421
care packages reaching a
major milestone of 50,000
care packages shipped
to our troops serving in
harm’s way In the Middle
East!
The 50,000th care
package was packed and
shipped by members of
the New Hampshire Blue
and Gold Star Families as a
tribute to their loved ones
service in the Middle East.
The care packages were shipped
to over 2,200 members of the armed
services from New Hampshire serving in
the Middle East, to members of the armed
services from throughout the United
States serving in Iraq and Afghanistan,
to retired veterans residing at the Tilton
retirement Home, veterans in transition
staying at Liberty House in Manchester,
Buckingham Place and Dalianis House in
Nashua, as well as the Veterans Medical
Center in Manchester.
MooreMart also shipped care packages
the Chaplains Offce to be distributed
to orphanages throughout Iraq and
Afghanistan, the MWR (Morale, Welfare
and Recreation Offce) in Iraq and
Afghanistan to be distributed to any
serviceman or woman who arrived in
the Middle East during Christmas week
to insure that they have a care package
and Christmas Stocking waiting for
them. According to Moore, the most
remarkable aspect of the care packages
isn’t the precious material inside, but
rather, it’s something tangible. It’s proof
to the soldiers serving overseas that they
have not been forgotten. “They are the
best this country has to offer,” Moore
said.
Moore was in tears on Saturday. “We are
Americans, and this is what we do. Thank
you for inspiring me,” Moore said.
Congressman Charlie Bass expressed
his gratitude, “This is the nicest thing
I’ve been to all week,” he added, “It
hasn’t been a very good week.” Bass
was alluding to his recent political
upset.
In the eight years since its inception,
MooreMart volunteers have given
over 500,000 man-hours. MooreMart
has mailed packages to soldiers from
every state, with the exception of
Washington. November’s packing
event brings the total number of care
packages shipped by MooreMart
to 52,238 and Humanitarian Aid
to Schools and Orphanages in Iraq
and Afghanistan to 6.7 tons. 40,200
S’mores and 8,000 boxes of Girl Scout
cookies have been included in the
packages.
The program has offered volunteer
opportunities to many groups in and around
southern New Hampshire. Boy Scouts,
Girl Scouts, School children and local
groups have all had the opportunity to
pack care packages during their monthly
packing events. The charity opens its doors
to volunteers in an effort to reach as many
soldiers as possible.
Senator Jeanne Shaheen and
Congressman Bass as well as staff
members from their offces participated
in the event. Both Congressman Bass
and Senator Shaheen have been avid
supporters of MooreMart since 2008 and
have been instrumental in the expansion of
MooreMart’s mission to send care packages
and relief supplies to our troops serving in
the Middle East.

Greater Nashua’s frst board-certifed colorectal surgeon trained in
robotic procedures is treating patients at Southern New Hampshire
Medical Center (SNHMC). John Friel, MD, of Colon & Rectal
Surgery of New England, is the area’s only colorectal specialist using
the da Vinci Surgical System for a variety of surgeries. On October
23, Dr. Friel successfully completed Nashua’s frst robotic-assisted
hemi colectomy, surgical removal of one side of the patient’s
colon. The patient experienced less post-operative pain, fewer
complications and fast recovery time.
“We want our patients to have access to the most effective
surgical approach for their specifc conditions,” said Dr. Friel. “The
da Vinci is our newest tool which allows us to perform complex
procedures through tiny incisions with unsurpassed precision and
control.”
Colon and rectal surgeons are experts in the surgical and non-
surgical treatments of colon and rectal problems. To meet board
certifcation, Dr. Friel has completed advanced training in these
areas, in addition to full training in general surgery. Colorectal
surgeons treat benign and malignant conditions, conduct routine
screening examinations, and surgically treat problems when
necessary.
Dr. Friel can perform surgeries for patients who suffer
from illnesses such as colon or rectal cancer, rectal prolapse,
diverticulitis, Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. The da Vinci
Surgical System enhances Dr. Friel’s expertise. A second colorectal
surgeon trained in robotics will join Dr. Friel at SNHMC this month.
Surgeries with the da Vinci at The Medical Center also include
procedures in gynecology and urology.
For several years, SNHMC has been working to build
sophisticated and comprehensive services, ranging from routine,
minimally invasive procedures to complex neurosurgery. Integrating
robotics into the hospital’s total surgical program means SNHMC
offers an array of options in one location to any patient who seeks
treatment there.
“All of these advantages for our patients, along with
compassionate surgeons and a superior surgical services team,
make SNHMC the destination surgical hospital in southern New
Hampshire,” said Dr. Kenneth Howe, Chief Surgical Offcer at The
Medical Center.

Hudson votes 6,683 for Romney,
5,451 for Obama
According to the NH SOS website, http://sos.nh.gov/2012GenElectResults.
aspx, the voters of Hudson selected Romney over Obama by 1,232 votes, Bass
over Kuster (6,025 Bass to 4,930 Kuster) and elected 10 Republican candidates
out of the 11 positions for NH State Rep. Hudson also voted for all of the
Republican candidates over the Democrat candidates in the Hillsborough
County elections and fve out of six of the Republican candidates were elected.
Both parties put in a tremendous efort to get out their vote. I would like
to thank all of the Republican volunteers that helped by knocking on doors,
holding signs and acting as poll watchers. Election Day is a long day for
our town moderator, town clerk, checklist supervisors and all of the election
ofcials that hand out the ballots. Every voter in Hudson is indebted to all of
those that work at the polls on Election Day.
Te new few months will show us how those that were elected on
November 6 will work to make our county, state and nation better, or worse.
Te so called experts, from both political points of view, will have lots to say
about the outcome of the election. One thing that is abundantly clear to me
is that my three kids will have nowhere near the economic opportunities over
their lifetime that I had in mine. Tat, I am afraid, is the real outcome of the
recent election.
Bryan Donovan, Chairman, Hudson Republican Committee, Hudson
Ron Paul Only Savior for the Republicans
A slave ship, armed against pirates, was at sea when one of the slaves was
able to seize a grenade.
“Turn back, and set us free, or I will drop this grenade, which will break the
hull and sink the ship.”
Te captain replied, “If you do that, you will perish with us.”
“What’s the diference?” asked the slave. “How is a lifetime of slavery any
better than death?”
Ron Paul supporters have demonstrated that we can and will sink the
Republican Party if our demands are not met. Te Republican Party big shots
knew Mitt Romney was totally unacceptable to us, and no better than four
more years of Obama.
Republicans such as Charlie Bass and Frank Guinta are gone, defeated by
Democrats, while newcomer Kerry Bentivolio, a Ron Paul supporter won a
U.S. House seat in Michigan.
To beat the Democrats, the Republican Party must stand united, and
that can only happen if the party unites behind supporters of the Ron Paul
Revolution. Delay and denial will get you nowhere.

of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It at one time was easier
to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the
necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing
to have such a man for their president. Now severe damage is done, and with
four more years of the same leadership and worse, this great nation is virtually
lost.
Te problem with America goes much deeper and is far more serious than
Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what really ails this nation. Blaming
the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast alliance of fools
that made him their prince. Te Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who
is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such
as those who made him their president. Liberalism is an infection on nations
that brings fools to power and is usually fatal to the nation.
Merilyn Carnes, Hudson
Tank You For Voting
Te election is over, the results are in, the fscal problems persist and serious
work remains to be done. Tank you for your vote and your support last
Tuesday. Te next legislative session will be difcult, time consuming and
taxing. Tat is literally taxing based on the titles of “bills” submitted thus far
and from what my friends on the opposing side of the aisle have told me. I
greatly appreciate the honor and privilege of representing the people of Pelham
and Hudson for 2013-2014. I will work with others in the delegation to
prevent, as much as is possible, the increased spending, increased taxing and
fee imposition that is about to hit us all. It will be difcult, even with the large
minority elected. If you have any questions on legislation or comments on
process please contact me at repulery@myfairpoint.net.
Jordan Ulery, Hudson
Despite Loss, Candidate
Tanks All for Support
I want to thank all the citizens of Hudson and Pelham who voted for me
for State Representative on November 6. Although I did not quite succeed in
getting back into ofce, I had a good run, and the support I received was very
gratifying.
Although I didn’t make it, I am extremely glad that my wife Mary Ann did.
She will again be an excellent representative for our district, and I know she
will be open to comments or questions from any constituent. I am proud of
her for running and will undoubtedly be even more proud as she serves.
I am encouraged by the signifcant change in membership in State
government, and expect that the new people in Concord will be able to undo
much of the damage done by the O’Brien legislature. I hope, and trust, that
incumbents who are returning will also hear the voice of the people, and help
to recover the civil and less ideological approach to governing that had been
the tradition prior to this last term. I will do whatever I can to help all those
who have been willing to ofer their time and energy to making our state great.
I can still be reached at 880-4908 or jkknowles@comcast.net.

What Will You Do?
Just a shade over 50 years ago, immediately after taking the oath of ofce,
President John F. Kennedy stated in his brief inaugural address “Ask not what
your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country.” Tat
statement was taken to heart by most people then and people were proud of
it. Based on the results of the recent election, that is no longer the case. Te
majority (albeit a slim one) voted in favor of “what can the country do for
me?” Tey voted in favor of raising other people’s taxes and the concept of
wealth redistribution. Tey voted in favor of increased control at the federal
level and continued assaults on the Constitution upon which this country was
founded. Tey voted from an ‘all about Me’ perspective instead of an ‘an all
about Us” perspective.
I’m just looking at the facts. Te above assertions are based on well
documented data and portray the approach and direction this administration
has and will continue to push this great nation. I do not intend to go on
about which candidate was better, is the U.S. becoming socialist, or any of
that. Just sharing a perspective to give folks something to think about.
Regardless of which party is in the White House or controls the Senate
or the House, or the decades of history behind why and how the economy
and current jobs situation came to be (both parties share blame, don’t kid
yourself ), the majority of this country continues to move towards less personal
responsibility, forced ‘fairness,’ and the belief that most people cannot think
and therefore must be protected from themselves. Examples? Sure! Bans on
soft drinks, teaching children they don’t need to keep score in athletic events,
A ban on toys in Happy Meals, rigid control of school lunch content, and
there are even groups even pushing for what words can and can no longer be
used. Heck, in San Francisco a person can be fned $500 for not recycling
their trash ‘correctly!’
And so I ask: Who decides what is ‘fair,’ or ‘correct,’ or just how much
control anyone should have over what they eat, drink, read, watch, or listen to?
Tis is somewhat cliché but has become a very pertinent question: What
will you do when they come for You?
Matthew J. Harper, Hudson
Editor’s note: Te following was received as a “Tumbs” submission. Due to its
length, I elected to share it with our readers as an “anonymous” Letter to the Editor.
Tis exceptions is made due to all the negative “thumbs” that the football coaching
staf received throughout the season. We encourage all writers to state their opinion
and sign their name.
Harsh Comments Led
to Painful Last Season
A huge Tumbs Down to the group of football parents who took it upon
themselves to repeatedly complain and whine about the Alvirne coach’s
abilities and the amount of play time their boys had. You do not speak for all
of us! Tere are many of us who have always appreciated the time and efort
these men put in to support and teach our boys - whether or not our sons were
one of the starters, or had much time on the feld. Tese boys learned more
from the coaches than what the scoreboard showed, perhaps you could have
asked your son what he was getting out of it, you might be surprised.
Every week, we in the stands had to listen to the complaints and obnoxious
banter when all we wanted to do was watch our kids play. Tis is a game and
believe it or not, chances are your son isn’t going to get picked up by a big
name school for football, nor is he going to be drafted by the NFL, regardless
of the coaching staf here. You all needed to take a step back and let it go
until after the season ended - but you didn’t. So now it would appear that the
negativity and commotion stirred by all of you resulted in not only the coaches
stepping down, but also the decision to have an awards ceremony without
the parents present. Can’t say l blame them, l wouldn’t want any of you there
either. As a parent of a Senior football player, I am extremely angry that I did
not get to share that with my son, thanks to you.
Just think, now your calendars have all opened up now that there is no
need for that “meeting.” I hope you think of us when you attend the awards
banquets for your Senior sons in the years to come.

The St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a volunteer-
driven charity dedicated to raising money for
childhood cancer research, will host one of
its signature head-shaving events at The White
Birch on New Year’s Day, where volunteers
will shave their heads in solidarity with kids
with cancer and raise money to Conquer
Childhood Cancers!
Why all the shaved heads? Worldwide a
child is diagnosed with cancer every three
minutes, and one in fve children diagnosed
in the U.S. will not survive. With only 4
percent of all federal cancer research funding
dedicated to pediatric cancer research, St.
Baldrick’s Foundation volunteers, supporters
and donors are needed to continue the battle
against this devastating disease.
The event is open to the public. Admission
is free. There will be entertainment and raffes
for the whole family to enjoy.
Volunteers are looking for local
businesses interested in making a charitable
contribution to sponsor this event. For more
information, and to make any donations,
visit our team page at http://stbaldricks.org/
events/Bald Beauties.
About the St. Baldrick’s Foundation

driven charity committed to funding the
most promising research to fnd cures
for childhood cancers and give survivors
long and healthy lives. Since 2005, St.
Baldrick’s has awarded more than $101
million to support lifesaving research,
making the Foundation the largest private
funder of childhood cancer research
grants. St. Baldrick’s funds are granted to
some of the most brilliant childhood cancer
research experts in the world and to younger
professionals who will be the experts of
tomorrow. Funds awarded also enable
hundreds of local institutions to participate
in national pediatric cancer clinical trials,
which may be a child’s best hope for a cure.

submitted by U.S. Department of Justice
United States Marshal David Cargill, Jr.
and Hillsborough County Sheriff James
Hardy have joined forces and resources in a
commitment to the United States Marshals
– New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force.
This commitment has been in existence
since the inception of the New Hampshire
Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002 on a part-
time basis, but the latest improvement to the
task force is a full-time commitment by the
Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Offce to the
U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force.
The United States Marshals – New
Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force was
formed in 2002 with agreements with all 10
County Sheriff’s, The New Hampshire State
Police, and countless other federal, state
and local law enforcement agencies to work
together in combating the warrant backlog
within the State of New Hampshire. This
allows all of these agencies to pool their
resources, manpower and knowledge for
the common goal of locating and arresting
violent fugitives in an effort to make New
Hampshire safer.
“This partnership between the
Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Offce and the
United States Marshals Fugitive Task Force
is a great match of resources and we look
forward to teaming up and apprehending
wanted fugitives, “ said Marshal Cargill. “
The United States Marshals are extremely
dedicated and knowledgeable in the feld
of fugitive investigations and this pairing;
with skilled and experienced fugitive
investigators from the Hillsborough County
Sheriff’s Offce is a natural ft. Hillsborough
County is the largest and most populated
county in the State of New Hampshire and
receives a large amount of felony warrants
from the courts. Combining our resources
and manpower will assist in the reduction
of outstanding warrants and reduce the
amount of wanted felons on the streets of
Hillsborough County resulting in even safer
streets,” said Sheriff James Hardy. Hardy
continued, “This initiative enhances and
expands our long time partnership with the
United States Marshals.”
Sheriff Michael W. Downing of the
Rockingham County Sheriff’s Offce
said “The partnership we have with the
United States Marshals Service has greatly
enhanced our ability to track down
and apprehend wanted fugitives. The
collaborative effort is working to make
Rockingham County and the State of New
Hampshire a much safer place.” The
Rockingham County Sheriff’s department
joined the task force earlier this year.
The New Hampshire Joint Fugitive
Task Force also has a ‘Fugitive of the
Week’ program which broadcasts a
different fugitive each week on WTPL-FM
radio, WMUR-TV, and the Union Leader
newspaper. This program has also resulted
in numerous arrests due to the outstanding
partnership with the public. We hear
from the public on a daily basis providing
information on the whereabouts of fugitives.
We are always grateful to the public who
obviously care about the safety and well-
being of their communities.
In 2006 Congress enacted the Adam
Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act
(AWA). The AWA replaced the Jacob
Wetterling Act and expanded on existing
National standards for the registration of
sex offenders. One provision of the AWA,
provides the United States Marshal Service
with the authority to investigate criminal
violations of the act. Over the last two
years the district of New Hampshire and its
task force partners have been involved in
150 sex offender investigations resulting in
27 federal and 41 state convictions.
The United States Marshals Service
fugitive programs are carried out with local
law enforcement in 94 district offces, 85
local fugitive task forces, 7 regional task
forces, as well as a growing network of
offces in foreign countries.
The U.S. Marshals are designated by the
Department of Justice as the primary agency
to apprehend fugitives that are wanted
by foreign nations and believed to be in
the United States. Fugitive apprehension
efforts have expanded abroad with the U.S.
Marshals Service offces in Mexico, Jamaica,
the Dominican Republic and Colombia.
The Marshals Service is the primary agency
responsible for tracking and extraditing
fugitives who are apprehended in foreign
countries and wanted for prosecution in the
United States.
Since the inception of the New
Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in
2002, these partnerships have resulted
in over 4,392 arrests. These arrests have
ranged in seriousness from murder, assault,
unregistered sex offenders, probation
and parole violations and numerous
other serious offenses. “It is this kind of
collaborative effort that has proven itself to
be highly effective in helping get dangerous
people off our streets. We have seen frst-
hand here in Belknap County how effective
the task force is in mobilizing resources
that otherwise take considerable time to
organize” said Sheriff Craig Wiggins of the
Belknap County Sheriff’s Offce.

Our vision was simple, but clear ... to
make a difference in the lives of students
by providing clothing and fundamental
necessities which would allow them to ft
in with their peers and be better prepared
to focus on their education. Thirty months
later, the organization has expanded to
include a full distribution center and nine
closets.
Catie’s Closet is proud to bring another
closet to the Hudson Community at Alvirne
High School. On Saturday, a team of
friends and family from Catie’s Closet,
along with the high school principal
Steve Beals and his family, outftted and
stocked the closet so it was ready for the
start of school Tuesday. Over 600 pieces
of clothing and shelves of toiletries were
placed in the closet to be accessed by
students in need. This closet is the third
for Hudson (Nottingham West, Hudson
Memorial) which allows students grades
Pre-K through high school, who are facing
severe fnancial times, to attain clothing
and toiletries.
Catie’s Closet is extremely grateful
to everyone who has so generously
supported our organization by giving
us their time, monetary contributions or
clothing donations. Catie’s Closet works
hard to ensure that students receive age
appropriate, trendy clothing that is worn
by their peers. This detail is essential in
ensuring that the students feel proud in the
clothing they are wearing, so they may face
each day with an optimistic attitude. If you
would like to make a donation, visit our
website at www.catiescloset.org or e-mail
us at info@catiescloset.org.

Santa arrives at the Hudson Community Center on Friday,
November 23, at approximately 4:30 p.m., directly after the tree
lighting at the Hudson Common. All boys and girls, along with
their families, are invited to join Santa and the Hudson Lions for
an afternoon of fun, crafts, and snacks.
Once again, Santa will help the NH Lions and the UNH
Community Leadership Program “Warmth from the
Millyard” by placing a collection box at the front door
for gloves, scarves, hats and socks. On any given
day, 2,248 of New Hampshire residents are homeless
and many more live below the poverty line. Poverty
and homelessness impact everyone and this is one way
we all can help. All donations will be given to a local
charity program.
Along with the Hudson Lions, Santa will be helped by
the Hudson Senior Citizens, Alvirne Culinary Art Department,
Little Broncos (Alvirne Child Care Dept) and local Girl Scouts
troops. We are all looking forward to this fun day with Santa!

Shaheen Inducted into Hall of Fame of NH
Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence
submitted by the Offce of Senator Jeanne Shaheen
U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen today was inducted into the
Hall of the Fame of the New Hampshire Coalition Against
Domestic and Sexual Violence for her work to support victims
of sexual violence and reauthorize the Violence Against Women
Act (VAWA). Shaheen has been an ardent supporter of VAWA
in Congress and has visited crisis centers throughout New
Hampshire to highlight the critical services the program provides.
“Protecting New Hampshire citizens from domestic and
sexual abuse is a critical priority, and the work carried out by
the Coalition has a huge impact in keeping our citizens safe,”
Shaheen said. “I’ve spoken with victims of sexual violence across
New Hampshire and one thing that I’ve heard over and over is
that the services offered by the Coalition and through VAWA
really make a difference. I am proud to stand with the Coalition
in support of VAWA to make sure people throughout our state get
the protection they deserve.”
“Senator Shaheen has been an integral part of the Coalition’s
history through her work as Governor, and now as U.S. Senator,”
said Maureen McDonald, Community Relations Director at the
Coalition. “Her leadership on the Violence Against Women Act
is greatly appreciated in this community and we cannot thank her
enough for all of her tireless efforts on behalf of victims.”
With Shaheen’s support, the Senate passed a version of VAWA
in April that honored the bipartisan history of the legislation and
included new protections for victims of same-sex relationships,
for immigrant victims and for women on tribal lands. The
reauthorization passed the Senate with a bipartisan vote of 68-31.
Shaheen has repeatedly called on the House of Representatives
to take up the Senate-passed version of the bill so that it can be
approved and passed to the President for his signature.
Shaheen has also introduced legislation that would provide
health services to victims of sexual assault in the military. The
Shaheen Amendment would put Department of Defense rules
in line with other federal policies by giving women in uniform
who are victims of rape or incest the right to access affordable
abortion care. The amendment was included in the 2013
National Defense Authorization Act and has been supported by
military leaders.
Other inductees into the Coalition’s Hall of Fame today
included: N.H. State Representative Julie Brown; Debra Hastings,
Director of Continuing Nursing Education at Dartmouth-
Hitchcock Medical Center; John Tobin, Executive Director of
New Hampshire Legal Assistance and Pamela Dodge, an active
member in the Domestic Violence Emergency Project.

Wizards Dazzle Litchfeld with their ‘Basketball Magic’
by Tom Tollefson
Campbell High School gym was alive with the energy of dazzling
dunks and dribbling displays last Wednesday night, November 7,
when the Harlem Wizards came to Litchfeld. The game, flled with
classic comedy and audience involvement, was made possible by
the Campbell High School Athletic Booster Club. A portion of the
proceeds of the game went towards the general fund of the club,
which funds college scholarships for Litchfeld students, varsity
sweatshirts, and various items that support the high school’s athletic
programs. Baked goods, donated by booster club members, were
also sold at the game as a fundraiser for the club.
“We’ve done this event in the past and it was a success so we
thought we’d do it again,” Gil Walton, President of the Campbell
High School Athletic Booster Club, said. “I’d like
to thank everyone who has pitched in for all their
volunteering. This is for our kids.”
The Wizards played against the home town
team consisting of members of the Litchfeld
Police and Fire Departments, Litchfeld youth
recreation coaches, and teachers at Litchfeld
Middle School and Campbell High School. The
home crowd enjoyed the show style of basketball
and comedy.
“It’s really funny and the kids are really letting
loose with the music, and it’s been fun watching
the staff from Litchfeld Middle School,” said
Heather Dwyer, Litchfeld Middle School 6th
grade Language Arts teacher.
Only a few seats on the back row of the
bleachers could be found, as dozens crammed
into the gym for the fundraiser with a unique
blend of comedy and athletic performance.
“I thought from the beginning to the end the
crowd was into it and it makes it easier to do your
job when you have an enthusiastic audience,” said Eric “Broadway”
Jones, one of the Harlem Wizards.
In addition to the comedy and basketball skills, the Wizards also
interacted with the crowd. Some even went into the stands during
the game. At half time, the team invited the children onto the court
for a few interactive gym games.
“It was a lot of fun. These guys did a great job of getting the fans
into the game and the kids seemed to love it and that’s what it’s all
about,“ Jeremy Bergh, assistant volunteer youth recreation basketball
coach said. Bergh even added a dunk of his own to the explosion of
the home crowd’s cheers.
Fellow teammate and Campbell High School Athletic Director
John Patterson also had high praise for the Wizards. “These guys
are great goodwill ambassadors for the game. We see so much
negativity in sports that it’s great to see people who are such positive
role models,” he said.
The Harlem Wizards were established in 1962 by New York sports
promoter Howie Davis. The Wizards bring a show style of basketball
and comedy to their games. Over the years they have helped raise
millions of dollars at fundraisers. More information on the Harlem
Wizards can be found on their website at www.harlemwizards.com.

October Activities at Campbell
submitted by Leah Stagnone,
CHS Student Council Historian
With fall sports seasons drawing to a close, Homecoming Week
festivities in full swing, PSAT testing, and other exciting events,
October proved to be a busy month for all students of Campbell
High School. Homecoming weekend began on Friday the 26th,
when students represented their school with remarkable spirit in
the annual pep rally. Fall athletes performed various skits, bringing
laughter and energy to the atmosphere with their choreographed
dances and silly costumes. That evening, football fans returned
to the school to watch the Cougars play under the lights against
Newfound. The Homecoming bonfre and concessions were
enjoyed by all. On the morning of Saturday the 27th, the Campbell
Cross Country team competed in States at Derryfeld Park in
Manchester. Back at the school, the National Honors Society
hosted the Laugh Everyday 5K to raise money for the Allison Corf
Memorial Scholarship. Later on the same day, the volleyball
team competed in a home playoff game, which was immediately
followed by the 2nd Annual Homecoming Dance. The dance was
hosted by the Campbell High School Student Council, and had
an impressive turnout. Homecoming week gave each student in
Campbell High School a chance to get involved and have healthy
fun with their peers. A big thank you to all who helped organize
events, as well as everyone who showed their support by attending!
GMS Students Honor Vets
Tommy Groulx welcomes his mom and father, Army First Sergeant Tom Groulx
submitted by Kerri Sullivan
Students at Litchfeld’s Griffn Memorial School recently honored
the special veterans in their lives through art and music. Students
of all ages were asked to invite Veterans they knew to a special
assembly organized by Music Teacher Barbara LaBelle and held on
Friday, November 9. Once there, the veterans were seated under
large poppies inspired by the poem “In Flanders Field” and painted
and created by third grade students in Mrs. Miller’s Art classes.
Students performed the Star Spangled Banner as well as a Patriotic
Sing-Along after the veterans were welcomed by Principal Thompson
who spoke about how the sacrifces made by these veterans allowed
students the freedom to learn. Assistant Principal, Connie Farro read
the names of all of the more than 50 veterans present, asking them to
stand with their student family members. The whole assembly was a
very moving tribute to American Veterans and a learning experience
for the new generations of students in Litchfeld.

Nottingham West Fifth Graders Make Halloween Count!
submitted by Gloria R. Eno,
Nottingham West Elementary School
Halloween is usually a time for kids to think about what
they can get, but a group of Nottingham West ffth graders
used their Halloween trick or treating as way to think about
what they can give.
All ffth grade classrooms participated in Trick or Treat for
UNICEF, the annual program that raises funds for children
living in poverty around the world. After learning more
about the mission of UNICEF and the needs of children
in developing countries, students
took their UNICEF collection boxes
along with them for Trick or Treating.
Leadership Team students counted
the money raised, and a total of
$732.75 was collected for this
important cause, exceeding the goal
of $550.00.

Litchfeld ‘Scouts for Food’ and
Finds Outstanding Generosity
submitted by Kerri Sullivan
On Saturday, November 10, Litchfeld Boy and Daisy
Scouts collected food to help the hungry in their town.
Throughout the morning, they collected almost 5,000 food
and toiletry items from around the town. They sorted all of
the items at the Fire Station and then delivered them directly
across the street to the Litchfeld Food Pantry. It was a great
way for Scouts of all ages to understand the importance of
helping others and the generosity of their town.
Scouts of all ages sort the almost 5,000 items donated

The importance of Veterans Day can be lost on young
students. Litchfeld Middle School ensured that would not
be the case for their students.
Several speakers, including veterans, activists and
student essay contest winners addressed the students on the
importance of recognizing veterans for the sacrifces they
made. Many spent their youths in war zones, fghting for
freedoms.
Eric Gibbons, a Gulf War veteran described the great
sacrifces made by World War II veterans. Those veterans,
the youngest of whom are in their early to mid eighties are
dying at an alarming rate, with hundreds dying every day in
the U.S. Gibbons stressed the importance of thanking them
for their service, and defending the nation’s freedom in a
time of great need.
Sarah Stagnone, Sean Lessard and Sara Keane won the
school’s Veterans Day Essay contest. All students wrote
of the tremendous gratitude they have for the men and
women in the armed forces. Keane’s essay asked students
to pause and think about the real meaning of Veterans
Day. Stagnone’s essay echoed a similar message, while
Lessard posed a rhetorical question, asking what the
nation would be like if there were no soldiers to thank.
William Trueheart, a self-described military brat and a
retired Army Offcer, explained the role of veterans, the
burden they carried and the oaths they take for the nation.
Andrea Hamblett, the school’s Administrative Assistant
said the program has been running at the school for fve or
six years. “I always tear up when they play the anthems,”
she said. One of the central parts to the ceremony is the
eighth grade band’s performance of “Salute to the Armed
Forces.” Veterans in the audience are encouraged to stand
when their branch’s theme is played.
The students, some as young as ten
were captivated by the presentation.

We are open for overnight shoppers and

to 1 PM on Friday, Nov.23, Black Friday - 2012. 2013 Vice President Ryann Mcquaid who explained the passion of her particular class by saying, “The
spirit week really means family to us, all of the seniors get a chance to bond together and no one gets left
behind. Everyone is involved and it is just such a special time in our last year.”
But Ryann and her senior classmates aren’t the only ones leaving AHS forever. Head custodian
Jerry Michaud also will be departing from the “Family” that is Alvirne High School this winter. When
asked how this make him feel
Michaud replied, “Very sad,
at his moment, very sad to be
leaving the school system.”
Jerry who had lost count of
how many times he had kissed
a cow in the name of school
spirit, had then mentioned why
he puckered up one last time,
“The seniors came up to me
and asked me to be in the cow
kissing contest,” said Michaud,
“I said yes because this is my
last year and I wanted to show
them what spirit I had.” The
long-time AHS icon ended his
interview by saying, “I would
like to thank everyone for this
spirit week, they had Custodial
Day on Tuesday for me, and it
was just the greatest honor in
the world. Thank you all.”
AHS Spirit - continued from front page
Here’s a story of “this
could only happen to
me.” I just got back
from a great seven day
cruise in the Eastern
Caribbean. My frst day
on the boat as I’m sitting
in a deck chair with a
beer (I’ll come clean
… it was a Corona) a
guy approaches me
with a can of Molson in
his hand. I’m wearing
a Bruins colored baseball hat that says “Parry
Sound Ontario, home of Bobby Orr” and he
mentions that he lives not far from that hallowed
ground for all Bruins’ fans. Very pleasant guy
and as I ask him the inevitable “What do you
do for a living?” he answers, “I own a brewery.”
This may come as a surprise to you but yes,
we hit it off. Greg MacIntosh is the owner of
Brewer’s Paradise in St. Catherine’s, Ontario,
within close proximity to Niagara Falls. His
business is actually designed along the lines of
the IncrediBrew facility in Nashua where Greg
will actually brew your own custom beer for you,
crafted to your specifcations, in bottles, kegs, or
whatever you prefer. So for example, if one of
Greg’s local customers wants a keg of a hearty
stout for an upcoming Buffalo Bills game (and let’s
face it, if you’re in Ontario in the middle of winter
or nearby Buffalo and a fan of the Bills … you’ll
need every drop of the stuff), he’ll put it together
for you. Doubting any of you folks will be
making the trek to Niagara Falls in the winter but
if you are one of the many tourists who visit next
summer please stop by and see Greg at Brewer’s
Paradise. He is a just a terrifc guy and you’ll be
glad you did. Save the website address for more
details www.brewersparadise.ca.
what you think. Almost as good as discovering
the beer was discovering the spot that we found
it in. Opened just this summer on Main Street
in Ogunquit, Cornerstone Artisanal Pizza and
Craft Beer (nice combo by any measurement) is
a terrifc place to sample hard-to-fnd craft beers.
Very impressed and I’d recommend it highly.
Glad Someone is Reading …
Had to laugh at a recent visit to the Grill Next
Door. I was standing near the bar waiting for a
table when loyal reader (and possible relative,
we’re still trying to fgure it out) Ken Rayno
of Salem waves me over to his table. After
exchanging pleasantries he says to me “Look at
my beer.” I’m stumped at frst until he points out
“I ordered a Guinness and it’s in a Coors Light
Glass.” Ken hit on one of my pet peeves that I’ve
written about in the past, that being when in a
sensational ale house like The Grill Next Door
it’s always a small let down when the beer you
order is served in a glass from another beer, made
worse when that other beer is Coors Light for
cripes sakes. Thanks for reading as always Ken
and for pointing that out.
And thanks to all of you for reading as well.
We’ll be back with a new installment of the Craft
Beer Chronicles in your local Area News Group
editions soon. And remember that comments
and suggestions are always welcome at peter@
areanewsgroup.com. Finally, please be sure to
enjoy all these terrifc craft brews responsibly.

A Close to the Oktoberfest Season
My Oktoberfest season is just not complete
without a visit to good friends Jim and Diane
Stillian’s Oktoberfest party. Jim is a devoted home
brewer and a legendary member of the Brew Crew
at the Grill Next Door in Haverhill. The best part
of Jim’s Oktoberfest party is his debut of some of
his hand crafted home brews that he rolls out for
the bash. This year I was blown away by a very
drinkable IPA that Jim tapped the very day of the
party. He had a few IPAs out for his guests but
one lighter one with a mid 4% ABV really hit the
spot. Jim is extremely diligent about his craft beers
and the care that went into this particular IPA was
more than noticeable. Using ingredients such as
crystal malts, with a dash of rye and wheat, the
brewing process started in July. After fermenting
in his private wine cellar for two weeks, the cask
aged until the day of the party. It’s a heck of a lot
easier to taste and critique a craft ale than to sit
down and plan your own home brew but Jim did it
perfectly at his Oktoberfest party this year. Thanks
to Jim and Diane for the annual invite and I’ll be
checking my inbox in September 2013 for next
year’s Oktoberfest date.
Discovery of the Month
Friends know I keep my iPhone by my side and
whenever I stumble (fguratively) upon a beer that
I really love I jot down some notes on it. Over
the last few weeks I found a few worthy of passing
along. Here’s one that really stood out.
The Maine Brewing Company (not affliated
with Shipyard or any of the other larger craft
brewers up in the Pine Tree State) has a nice track
record of rolling out exceptional craft ales in
bottles and kegs that you’ll fnd at the better ale
houses in Maine and New Hampshire. However
I can’t imagine one any better than their Mean
Old Tom, a deep and rich stout. Black as
night with a creamy, almost mocha colored
head, I’m not usually a big stout fan but this
was an absolute winner. Hints of vanilla and
chocolate throughout, these favors were not
so overpowering so as to turn it into a type of
“dessert beer.” But with a solid yet not over
the top of ABV of 6.5%, The Mean Old Tom
was as good a stout as I’ve enjoyed in a long
time. If you can fnd it, buy it and let me know

David William Hutchings, Sr., 86, of
Hudson entered the presence of our Lord
on November 6, 2012, after fghting a battle
with pulmonary disease at Southern New
Hampshire Medical Center, Nashua.
He was born February 13, 1926, in Newark,
NJ, the youngest child of Joseph Lyall and
Ruth Corkill Hutchings, and was predeceased
by his sister, Florence Hutchings Watson of
Ft. Meyers, FL; and his brother, Joseph Lyall
Hutchings, Jr. of Granby, CT. He attended
public schools in Nutley and Montclair, NJ.
David joined the third Marine division during his senior year of high
school, training at radio school and serving in the Pacifc and in
China at the close of World War II. He returned to attend forestry
school in Montana, which prepared him to serve as a National Park
Ranger for 25 summers at Yellowstone, the Smokies, and Acadia
National Park and the Edison Historic Site, much to the delight of his
family. Hiking and mountain climbing was undertaken frequently,
even when he was deeply involved in books. He attended Biblical
Seminary and graduated from Columbia University and New York
University, with an emphasis in American history.
He married Esther Lauer on September 8, 1953, at the chapel
in Yellowstone Park, and they had two daughters, Barbara Lynn
currently of Scranton, PA and Katherine Anne Porter of Randolph,
VT; and a son, David William (Bill) Hutchings, Jr. of Windham. Their
grandchildren are Emily Katherine, Madeline Christie, David Joseph
and Andrew (Drew) John Hutchings and Samuel Tucker Riley. Bill’s
wife, Michele (Mike), is a special daughter and Daniel Riley, Tucker’s
father, often takes him mountain climbing.
David taught history at Wasatch Academy, a Presbyterian Missions
School in Mt. Pleasant, UT, and Clifford Scott High School in East
Orange, NJ. He was invited to write a book and in 1974 Edison at
Work was published. The family was active at Grace Presbyterian
Church in Montclair, NJ and David became an elder, as well as
singing in the choir, and with the John Hallet Chorale. When he
retired from teaching for 30 years, he joined the Rutgers University
research team working on the Thomas Edison Papers Project for 10
years. Then, he and his wife moved to Gorham, ME with one and
a half acres of quiet among lovely neighbors. David continued
researching, volunteering for 12 years at the Oscher Map Library
of the University of Maine, as well as helping at the Root Cellar, an
inner city ministry in Portland, and being active at the South Gorham
Baptist Church, and enjoying the activity at 470 Railroad Club.
Finally, the property became more diffcult to manage and
he agreed with his son that he should move near his family in
Windham. In July 2010 they moved to Highland Woods, Hudson,
where he further developed his interest in trains and in rare railroad
schedules on lines that interested him. They joined the Windham
Presbyterian Church where Bill’s family is active, and he joined the
choir, where Mike sings and Christie is pianist, much to his delight.
His “swan song” was singing with the choir the day before his
doctor sent him by ambulance to the hospital. We trust he enjoys a
heavenly choir.
A Memorial Service was held on November 10 at Windham
Presbyterian Church. Interment will be in the Memorial Garden
at Grace Presbyterian Church, Montclair, NJ, at a date to be
determined.
Memorial contributions may be made to World Vision, PO Box
9716, Federal Way, WA 98063; Source-code: 105429654, or sent
to World Vision c/o Windham Presbyterian Church, 1 Church Road,
Windham, NH 03087.
Arrangements are under the care of Douglas and Johnson Funeral
Home, 214 Main Street, Salem.
David W. Hutchings
The frst day they cleaned out a house where the cement block
wall was completely blown out by the water surge. The area on Long
Island they were in was about 10 blocks - every house was completely
or semi-destroyed by the water. Morin reported you could walk down
the street and every other house had FEMA signs on them as they had
been condemned.
Sunday they worked on another house to clean it out, bagging
everything that was destroyed in big plastic bags to contain the mold.
Monday, the team was on Staten Island, again removing damaged
debris from a home. This house had lost everything in the basement
and the frst foor. The storm washed everything away, taking doors of
the hinges.
Capt. Morin closed by stating, “These areas will never be the same.”

Thumbs Up? Thumbs Down? Thumbs Up? Thumbs Down?
“Thumbs up to Chili Dogs with a side order of
bread and people who make them.”
“Thumbs up to the pretty lady in Litchfeld who
just celebrated her 39
th
(again) birthday!”
“Thumbs up. The freworks on Rte 3A were
awesome. Big thumbs way, way up!”
“Thumbs down to whoever put the fence
between the neighborhoods of Souca Boulevard
and Marsh Road. We can’t even walk our strollers
or the kids’ bicycles between the neighborhoods
and enjoy a nice walk. Please make an opening
for people. Thank you.”
“Thumbs up for the generous boot parkers of
Litchfeld. You raised $198.50 for hurricane Sandy
relief fund. Thank you and thumbs up.”
“Thumbs up. God Bless America! Voting
in America is a thing of beauty. Democrats,
Independents, Republicans, Liberals,
Conservatives, Protestants, Catholics, Jews,
Muslims, Hispanics, Blacks and Whites, all line
up together, peacefully, to cast their vote for the
person, or cause, of their choice. I pray for all
of the newly elected and re-elected government
offcials that they may govern as Americans.
Nothing is impossible when we work as one
because, in fact, we are ‘One nation under God,
indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.’”
“Thumbs up to all the guys at the Litchfeld
Dump! I go there every weekend and have
never had a problem or been turned away with
anything! All the guys that work there are helpful,
polite and generally good guys. Thanks and keep
up the good work.”
“Thumbs up to the ballot clerks, poll workers,
and town offcials in Litchfeld who worked
tirelessly to ensure that my right to vote could be
exercised. Thank you all for your hard work and
for making the process as smooth as possible.”
“Thumbs down to the Alvirne Football
Coaching Staff! Your ineffective coaching practice
is to blame on your inability to win a football
game, not the lack of dedication or athletic ability
by the players. Please keep in mind that some
quit because they never see playing time, while
others need to work to help put food on the tables
for their parents. These boys you are complaining
about have won state championships or made it
to the playoffs time and time again. As far as their
ability to be effective on the feld...they run your
plays!! All fve of them! Take responsibility for
your actions and act like men! Blaming nine years
worth of football players is just a cop out. Shame
on all of you.”
“Thumbs up to the LMS Lady Raiders Volleyball
Team for their League Championship Victory!
Way to go LMS!”
“Thumbs up to LMS for their parent conference
sign-ups online. I appreciated the excellent
communication through the process for the
conference with my son’s teachers.”
“Thumbs up to the Hudson Police Offcer at
the polling station on Election Day, who was
so concerned that the Police Force would get a
thumbs down for their efforts at traffc control and
crowd control. They had
done their best; he wished
they could have done better.
He specifcally mentioned
thumbs down. It was so
heartening and refreshing to
meet a public servant who
really cares about the people
he serves. It made me glad I
live in Hudson! Thank you.”
“Thumbs up to the 47
young adults that received the
Sacrament of Confrmation at
St. Kathryn’s Parish. It is good
to see young people confrm
their faith in God.”
“Thumbs up to the classy
way the Alvirne High School
football staff resigned as a
unit. Although, I am deeply
saddened that they will no
longer be coaching my son, I
have to admire the way they
exited the ‘system’. They
all believed in each other
and left as a unit. To the
parents who were always
complaining about them and
how things were done, they
left our kids with the biggest
lesson of all, ‘stick together
and be a unit, don’t be an
individual in this game of
football and/or life.’ Thank
you for making a difference in
my son’s life.”
“Thumbs up to the Town of
Hudson for creating the Town
of Hudson NH Emergency
Management Facebook Page!
They kept all of us that were
in the dark out of the dark
during Hurricane Sandy!
Their updated posts kept us
all informed
when our
power was going to be turned
on, road closures, Halloween
updates...etc. They were great!
Keep up the great work! Thank
you!”
“Thumbs down to the lunches
at Campbell High School. I
have seen recent comments
about the lunch provided or not
provided, I should say, and I
also spoke with my child about
it, who said the food is either
burned, cold, or they don’t have
any left. How would you like to
go hungry or have to eat crappy
food and still pay good money
for it?”
“Thumbs up to the voting
polls at the Lions Hall in
Hudson. I think it was very well
organized with plenty of people
to help with parking and stuff.
It went smoothly, especially
with record number of voters.
Good job!”
“Thumbs up for the response
about how you believe the
HLN leaked the writers
information to HPD. No, I am
not an employee with HPD.
I am just very familiar with
this enabling mother and her drug addict and
convicted criminal son of hers. I just love how
you confrmed everything I said about them. You
do not dispute my post’s accuracy, but if I received
the writer’s information from the HLN. Thanks.”
“Thumbs up to voters in Litchfeld and Hudson.
You voted for change in our leaders, but where
sadly disappointed. Obama got his photo op in
NJ and NY and then let FEMA
fail to help them. They voted
for him. Bush was chastised
for FEMA’s failure in LA. Not
a word about the victims of
Sandy living in tents in parking
lots. No heat during the snow-
storm and cold nights. No
press allowed in these camps
to document the failings of
the government. What a great
choice for America.”
“Thumbs down to Coach
Nimblett’s resignation. Jeremy
B., 2009 Captain and our
family are very saddened by
this. You gave our boys not only the drive and
determination that was carried through all other
areas of their lives, but you also gave them the
gift of becoming young men with dignity, respect,
integrity and compassion for others. My personal
belief has always been that these gifts were
more important than winning, but 2009 was an
unforgettable year! I will be forever grateful that
he had you and your staff to guide him toward
being the amazing young man he is. I wish
nothing but a wonderful future for you and your
family.”
“Thumbs up. Thank you to all the volunteers at
the Hudson Community Center on voting night.
You really kept the voters’ spirits up as we waited
in line in the cold weather. Particular thanks
for the coffee and hot chocolate, as well as the
music.”
“Thumbs up to the Nottingham West
Elementary PTO Co-Presidents. You are doing a
great job!”
“Thumbs up to the voters
of Hudson. After viewing
the results in the Nov. 9th
HLN, it was refreshing to
know that for the most part,
the voters in Hudson got it
right. Unfortunately, we were
overwhelmed by a sea of
stupidity by our fellow citizens.
(I use this term loosely). So,
hang on as best you can. I
fear that it’s going to be a very
tough four years now that this
unqualifed Marxist is going to
spend another term in our White
House.”
“Thumbs up to a phenomenal
Veteran’s Day Ceremony at
LMS. The speakers, band, and
students did a great job. Also,
the student body showed the
utmost respect to the veterans present. It is events
like this that make me so proud to be part of our
Litchfeld and Middle School community.”
“Thumbs up to the town of Hudson. The
directing of traffc, and checking in to vote on
Nov. 6th was so well organized. My husband
and I were in... voted... and on our way home in
20 minutes. Also, the people who worked at the
polls were helpful, smiling, and very effcient.
Made for a good experience.”
“Thumbs down to Frank and Paul for creating
a sixth grade test for your new leaders. Just know
we are watching your every move. The town will
not be very happy when everything comes out,
and believe me it will. Just watch what you say
and do because your best people are your worst
enemies.”
“Thumbs down to the comment about 1 polling
place. Really?? People in other
countries would wait for hours for
the privilege to vote.”
“Thumbs up. A big thumbs
up to the Litchfeld Community
for their tremendous generosity
with food donations for Scouting
for Food! You are all awesome!!!
Thank you, Troop, Pack and Crew
11.”
“Thumbs down to the extremely
loud truck in our neighborhood.
Especially love the early morning
wake ups! Consideration is a
wonderful thing. Think about it.
Thanks so much.”
“Thumbs down. It is a sad
day in America when deceit, lies
and slander can trump character,
honor and integrity. Looks like
Mitt was right about the 47% with
their hand in the till, ‘Takers Rule.’
Look out, Greece, we are coming
through.”
“Thumbs up to the residents of
Hudson. I don’t live in Hudson,
but I have recently built my
business here. In a time of
political division and economic
hardship for most, I am very
grateful for the support of the
town and its residents. I don’t get
a chance to thank all the people
that attend events here, so I just
want to say ‘thank you.’ I’ve made
the right choice to locate here in
Hudson. Your community really
cares about the issues that affect
the quality of life here and I’m
glad to be a part of it.”
“Thumbs down to the
transformation at Alvirne High
School. In a few short months
the school has gone from an
environment of learning as its
priority and respect for everyone, to a chaotic
irreverent atmosphere. This can only come from
the top where one apparently seems to believe
that policies and procedures have no place in
a school setting and therefore has abolished
them. One’s refusal to back the faculty in their
decisions, but rather appease parents and students
at the faculty’s expense doesn’t show leadership
ability. The school board should have seriously
considered past job performance rather than
friendship.”
“Thumbs up to all the Alvirne football players.
Keep working hard and having fun.”

We need all the names and addresses, so we can mail them by December 7.

heroes?
If you have any questions, call Pat Jewett, 424-6636. Tanks again for your support.

The CHS Auditorium was flled to capacity on
November 13 as parents, students, teachers and
administrators joined in recognizing the fall season
Campbell athletes. Athletic Director John Patterson
began the ceremonious evening by congratulating
the collective group of athletes for a great season
which saw many accomplishments; including three
semi-fnal appearances and a team school record.
In saying there were so many people to thank for
their roles in the successful fall campaign, Patterson
extended special kudos to Dawn Miller (assistant to
the A.D.) and Laurie Rothhaus, frst year principal of
the Litchfeld high school. Rothhaus, a former athlete
during her high school years, was commended by
Patterson for being such an “advocate for athletics” in
her current administrative role.
In a swift moving affair, the presentation of awards
began with “senior night” for cross country and
golf team members; as each senior athlete and his/
her parents were recognized and presented with the
customary Campbell red rose. From football to the
spirit team, a total of eight sports programs saw 17
individual receive either a ‘coach’s award’ or ‘most improved award’-
a two award system implemented years ago by former A.D. Dan
Kiestlinger.
Boys’ cross country coach Kelly Fraser kicked-off the awards
presentation by saying this team is “the fastest, largest, youngest cross
country team in Campbell high school history.” - referencing the boys’
ninth place fnish at the state championships with a school record
time of 19:10, in the 5K race. Fraser also recognized sophomore
Sean Munnelly for his ninth place individual performance at the states
which qualifed him for the Meet of Champions. For his awards,
Fraser presented Patrick Mackey with the Most Improved award
while his Coach’s Award went to Nate Helie. On the girls’ side,
Most Improved went to Meghan Otis, refecting an over 6 minute
improvement in her fnish times over the course of the season, while
Leah Stagnone (current girls’ 5K school record holder) walked off the
stage as the frst non-senior to ever receive Fraser’s Coach’s Award.
Coach Marc Prindiville included CHS athletic trainer Chip
Cloutier in his list of acknowledgements for his important role in
the conditioning and treatment of injuries incurred by the Cougar
football players. Prindiville recognized the senior leadership as well
as the impactful role of younger players that led to a 7-2 regular
season record and a semi-fnals appearance. Most Improved went
to Steven Amadio while the resounding choice for the coach’s award
went to Jesiah Wade, who rushed for 34 touchdowns and 2,200 yards
(breaking the previous school record by nearly 800 yards.) Prindiville
also thanked Dennis Miller and the Campbell Breakfast Club for their
tireless effort of preparing pre-game meals for the entire team before
every home game.
Once again, the girls’ soccer team made another run at a state
title, only to lose to Hopkinton in the semi-fnals. But as Coach Bob
Gannon expressed, it’s easier knowing that the team that eliminated
the Cougars went on to win the state title. Gannon’s group of
perennial contenders included 4 All-State recipients. Nicole Golden,
Olivia Crema and Savannah Cavanaugh received honorable mention,
while senior stalwart Casey Mellen received frst team recognition for
the second consecutive year. Mellen followed the state award with
one from her coach; receiving one of the two Coach’s Awards for her
play on the feld as well as maintaining a 3.46 grade point average
(GPA) in the classroom, which earned her All-Scholastic status. Erica
Guilbeault, who received identical All-Scholastic recognition for her
stellar 4.17 GPA, received Gannon’s other award.
Boys’ soccer coach Steve Levine recognized some All-Scholastic
achievers of his own; honoring Jared Saunders, Jacob Morgan and
Justin Prindle for their academic excellence. On the feld, Morgan’s
seven regular season shutouts as the Cougar keeper earned him Most
Improved. Levine’s coach’s award went to John Paul Galvez; “he
demonstrated daily, his love to play the game,” noted the Campbell
coach. State-wise, senior striker Ian Hutchinson earned frst team All-
State honors, with Tyler Guarino receiving honorable mention.
Spirit Coach, Renee Lubinski, applauded her team’s third place
fnish in the state competition as well as their frst place performance
at the Stacey Stott Invitational held in Lowell, MA. In turn, members
of the team, in a gesture of appreciation, presented the trophy to
Principal Rothhaus. Receiving Lubinski’s ‘three’ coach’s awards were:
Jamie Carty, Nicole Gray, and Lindsey Morlach.
Speaking on behalf of Volleyball Coach Colin Walker, senior
team member Jayla Brennen relayed his ‘team congratulations’ to
the audience for the Cougars perfect 16-0 regular season record in
addition to making a trip to the state semi-fnals. Receiving Walker’s
Most Improved award was Alex Trevains (who led the team in blocks).
The Coach’s Award went to two year captain, Jayla Brennen, who
dominated the court this past season on her way to receiving 1st team
All-State honors.
CHS Boosters Club President Gil Walton spoke briefy but
profoundly to conclude the evening’s, noting that in addition to the
athletic accomplishments that were being recognized that evening,
there were Campbell students who also received All-State honors
outside of the sports arena. Chosen from nearly 400 singers and
instrumentalists statewide, Molly Connor (soprano), Megan Connor
(alto) and Kian Fuertes (guitarist) were all honored by being selected to
play in the Jazz All-State Choir and Band, respectively.

Awards Night was
held on November
6, in the AHS Gym
to honor all Alvirne
fall athletes and
teams. AHS Athletic

Bonney, adeptly
emceed the Alvirne

event, which drew
more than 200
enthusiastic players
and fans. The AHS

(thank you!) for all to enjoy on hectic election
night.
“First and foremost, this night is to honor all of
our Alvirne fall student-athletes and distinguished
award recipients,” announced Bonney. “It is also
to recognize and thank our dedicated coaching
staff, as well as the many people behind the scenes
that support Alvirne athletics, including the AHS
Booster Club, parents, my indispensible assistant,
Lori Stolos, AHS Principal Steve Beals and the
general AHS community.”
In addition to the more than 20 specifc team
awards highlighted below, dozens of coveted
Alvirne Varsity light gray sweatshirts were awarded
to all frst-time two-letter AHS varsity athletes,
along with Bonney’s standard advice, “bigger is
better.” AHS Varsity sweatshirts were provided by
the AHS Booster’s Club, made possible by proceeds
from the Turkey Raffe (11/3/12) and concessions.

Assistant Coaches – Kyle Tave, John Conrad, Joell
Williams, Adam Perkins, Glenn Costello, Robert
Russell, Mark Cohen, and Tom Eldredge -- also
all stepped down in unison, leaving a gaping
hole in the AHS football program.
While rousing cheers were heard for the
aforementioned AHS athletes, the only standing
ovation of the night came when AHS Principal and
Coach Steve Beals introduced his three very special
Alvirne athletes from his Unifed Soccer team –
Deanna Donadio, Tristan Lindsay and Justin Lowe.
Justin was also awarded the Coaches Award for his
“Can-Do Spirit.”
Immediately after the main ceremony, each
coach held team break-out meetings in classrooms
to individually award each JV and Varsity player
with certifcates, pins and letters. Special thanks to
Coach Bonney, Boys Soccer parents and the AHS
Booster Club for putting together a great fall awards
night. Congratulations to all AHS fall athletes,
teams, and special award recipients – Go Broncos!

Da’ Bears do it again! The 5th Grade State
Champion Hudson-Litchfeld Bears faced Rhode
Island in the New England Regional Quarter
Finals on Saturday. It was a tough, hard hitting
game but the Bears pulled it off again beating
Rhode Island 32-13. The Bears came out
swinging and played a very physical game. The
CFCL Chiefs of Rhode Island won two Super
Bowls and hadn’t lost a game in three years.
The Bears now get a bye to the New England
Regional Finals that will be played at Brown
University in Rhode Island. They will face the
winner of Bridgeport, CT vs. Shrewsbury, MA on
November 25. The Bears are taking it one game
at a time, but if they win the Regional Final
game they advance to the Nationals in Florida.
We want to thank the Hudson Police
Department for giving the Bears an escort to the
game. The kids, parents and coaches all loved it
and everyone at the stadium knew that we had
arrived. Go Bears!

The Rockingham Area Youth Swim
team (RAYS) kicked off its 2012-
2013 season with an intra-squad
“Fun Meet” on October 21. Events
included a pumpkin toss relay. Even
the coaches were coaxed into the
pool to compete. The 2012 Summer
Olympics inspired many youngsters
to be the next Michael Phelps or
Missy Franklin, so the event was a fun
way to introduce the new members
to the youth swim meet format and to
receive instruction from some of the
older team members.
On October 27, the RAYS traveled
to Harvard University to face the
Crimson Youth Swim Club and the
YMCA of South Shore. In the 8
year old and under events, Erin
Prendergast of Windham and Jack
McCarthy both shaved time off in
the 25 yard breaststroke. In the 12
year old and under races, Hannah
Pickett of Windham slashed two
seconds off her best time in the 50
yard breaststroke. Jason Domogala of
Windham improved his times
in the Butterfy, Backstroke
and Breaststroke. His older
sister Ashley matched his
efforts in the 200 Freestyle and
100 Backstroke. Bradley Valo
of Windham also improved
times in a number of events.
Owen Caprioglio and Emily
Caprioglio of Litchfeld
competed as well, with
both swimming the 200 IM. Sasha
McNeal of Salem improved in the
50 Freestyle, 100 Butterfy and 100
