Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) can strike at any time, and fewer than 10 percent of SCA victims typically survive. Studies have shown that the likelihood of survival increases if the victims receive Cardiac Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) or use an AED within five minutes of collapse. The clinically advanced AED is an easy-to-use product that helps lay rescuers respond quickly and effectively to a SCA event. “We are thrilled with the AED donation. Although we are certainly hopeful we will never have to use it, it is great to know we have this life saving tool available at the Depot

Casino Advisory Committee Approved
by S. Aaron Shamshoyan Selectmen were flush with support for a Casino Advisory Committee Monday, but the make-up of that committee split the board. With the anticipation of an expanded gaming bill to face state lawmakers this session, local officials are betting Rockingham Park will obtain a license. Earlier this month, members of New Hampshire Casino Now, a local advocacy group supporting expanded gaming at Rockingham Park, requested the committee be established. The suggested make-up of the nine-person committee included the Town Manager, Community Development Director, and a budget committee member, all of which selectmen felt weren’t necessary. Chairman Patrick Hargreaves recommended a committee consisting of two Board of Selectmen members, one School Board Member, five Residents, and one State Representative or Senator. Selectman James Keller favored some of the changes. “I’m all for more citizens and less administration,” he said. Keller also suggested an equal distribution of officials, noting two selectmen would sit on the committee as proposed and only one school board member. Selectman Stephen Campbell felt the distribution was fair. “the casinos aren’t going to do much if anything to the school district,” he said. Campbell added the school district would benefit from an increase in property value, but said the three percent of gross revenues, a number proposed to go to the hosting town of a casino in previous bills, would help the town fund increased police, fire, and road continued to page 3 - Casino

Head Football Coach Adam Gagne Resigns After One Season
by Jacob Gagnon First year Salem High School Football Coach Adam Gagne will not return to the gridiron for the Blue Devils next season. Following a winless (0-11) 2012 campaign, Gagne has announced that he is stepping down from his Head Coach position at Salem in order accept the same position at Westford Academy in Massachusetts, where he also teaches. Gagne was an offensive coordinator at Westford Academy for three seasons prior to being named the Head Coach of Salem High School in February of 2012. With Gagne gone, the void that former Head Coach Jack Gati left after the 2011 season is evident once again. Gati served 18 years as Head Football Coach at Salem and recorded 121 career victories. From the start of his short stint at Salem High, Gagne vowed to take everything day by day. It was a simple philosophy that Gagne and his team stuck with, even as the season progressed and the losses piled up. “We don’t talk about or worry about anything down the line. We’re worried about next practice,” said Gagne last August, one week before the start of the regular season. “We don’t use any future games or any future rivals or anything like that to stay motivated. We’re worried about our day-to-day operations. We work on getting better day by day.” It was a way for both Gagne and the Blue Devils Football squad to not dwell on each defeat. By worrying about the next practice, the next day, Gagne helped his team maintain a level of focus for each activity without fear over the future. After every game, Gagne’s comments about anything further down the road than the next practice or the next game were not mentioned. The young team, he knew, would progress with time. In a season that, on the record book looked dismal, there were plenty of bright spots that shined like stars through a cloudy night sky. Junior Jason Martinez led the Blue Devils offense with a breakout year at running back. Martinez will return to the field for Salem motivated to not only match his multiple touchdown performances from last season, but to far exceed them. Even without Gagne at the helm, the Blue Devils future has not dimmed.

Keith Belair on ‘Flipping Boston’
by S. Aaron Shamshoyan National attention is coming to a local businessman after being contracted to design and install space-saving furniture in a small Lynn condominium. Flipping Boston, a national A&E Network show, follows CityLight Homes contractors Dave Seymour and Peter Souhleris as they purchase properties in the Greater Boston Area, renovate, and sell them for a profit. But when the duo took on a 330 square foot Lynn, MA, condo, they approached Keith Belair, owner of More Space Place in Salem, to make the most of the confined space. “This renovation is a perfect example of what we do,” Belair said. “More Space Place is all about helping people make the most of their space by utilizing built-in organization and customized storage to meet their individual needs.” Interior designers from the show met with Belair to determine the best configuration of his space-saving modular furniture, to maximize the condo’s use. A fold up murphy style New Yorker Panel Wall Bed was installed in the main room of the studio, featuring shelving, slideout nightstands, a queen bed, and cabinet space. The other side of the room received an entertainment center and custom built desk. Belair said Souhleris came to his store to pick out a bed, but quickly discovered the availability of a matching entertainment center and office desk. “The whole wall used the same panels,” Belair said. “The whole big room was done by me.” There wasn’t much Belair didn’t install in the small studio. “The only other things left in there were the kitchen and bathroom.” The space-saving furniture provided added function to the room. Without the fold up bed and compact entertainment center, Belair said it would only be a bedroom. “You’re not throwing away your one room on a bedroom,” he said. On the set, Belair said it was a typical job. CityLight Homes began prior to the A&E series, and Seymour and Souhleris continue doing what they do best, flipping homes. “They’ve been doing it for years,” Belair said and while they may argue with each other, he was treated well.

The episode will premiere March second on A&E. After the bed was installed, Belair said Souhleris tried it out, giving directions and ordering food. Belair enjoyed working with the team, and hoped to work with them again in the future. After the renovation, the condominium was put up for sale and the results are unknown. “You’ll have to watch the show to find out,” Belair said. A tentative airdate on March 2 is planned for the episode on the A&E Network. More Space Place has 38 stores across the country offering modernized space-saving furniture to fit any room.

Shaheen Renews Strong Support for Violence Against Women Act
throughout our state get the protection they deserve,” Shaheen added. “Throughout her career, Senator Shaheen has stood up for women in our state and across the country and we are fortunate to have an advocate like her representing our interests in the senate,” said Amanda Grady Sexton, Director of Public Policy for the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence. “Senator Shaheen has been a tireless advocate and the strongest of leaders when it comes to the Violence Against Women Act and we can’t thank her enough for all of her support.” Shaheen has visited crisis centers funded by VAWA throughout New Hampshire to hear from survivors of domestic violence and has spoken several times on the Senate floor in support the bill. This past November, Shaheen was inducted into the Hall of Fame of the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence for her support of women and families in need. Despite the advocacy work being done in New Hampshire, nearly one in four women has been sexually assaulted, at least a third of New Hampshire women have been the victim of a physical assault by an intimate partner and more than half of all women in the state have experienced sexual or physical assault over the course of their lifetime, according to the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence. According to the Department of Justice, twenty-five percent of college women will be the victim of rape by the time they complete a four-year program. The Violence Against Women Act was first passed in 1994 and was reauthorized with broad which includes 8 small group bipartisan support in 2000 personal training sessions and 2005.

Shaheen, an original co-sponsor of the bill, was part of a bipartisan group of senators who reintroduced the legislation. “Protecting New Hampshire citizens from domestic and sexual abuse is a critical priority, and the services afforded through VAWA have an enormous 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 repeatedly is that VAWA Service Credit Union’s low rate makes a difference. All of us share an obligation to stop this epidemic, will get you moving. and VAWA is a proven tool in the fight.” “I am proud to stand support • New, used and refinances are eligible of VAWA to make sure people

The Word Around Town...
Letters to our Editor
Why Should We Invest $17M in Soule, Fisk and Haigh Schools?
It’s important to remember, as we approach the February deliberative session and the March vote, why we’re doing elementary school renovations and upgrades. We need to improve the safety and security of our schools and maintain our buildings. We need permanent space for state required kindergarten and appropriate permanent space for student special services. We need to stop teaching in portable classrooms, closets, stairwells, bus ports and hallways. Fisk and Soule schools do not have permanent kindergarten space. We have to spend $40,000 per year just to rent portables at Soule and Fisk to get that space. That cost doesn’t include lighting and heating and it’s easy to believe we’re spending too much money on heating energy-inefficient structures. Because there’s no dedicated space at Soule and Fisk for individualized reading instruction, physical therapy, occupational therapy or student special services, like there is at North Salem, Lancaster and Barron, we’re still trying to teach in portables, closets, hallways and stairwells. There are no dedicated multi-purpose rooms so we’re still using cafegymatoriums; no adequate nurse’s rooms; no fire sprinklers and no new improved security entrances. We need to address our real student educational and safety needs. Based on the current enrollment projections, Haigh School will continue to be an active school with students in attendance for the next few years. While a multi-million dollar renovation might not be appropriate at this time, the students and staff at Haigh deserve a sound, safe and secure building too. The building needs a sound roof, a fire sprinkler system and an upgraded fire alarm system. The students need good lighting, good heating and air circulation and better security. In fact, any future occupants, whether they are students and staff or rent-paying tenants, will need these upgrades. Most of these upgrades would be needed to keep even an unoccupied building in sound and safe condition. We can renovate the Fisk and Soule Schools and upgrade Haigh School using bonds totaling approximately $17 million. The maximum tax impact, on a $300,000 house, is just over $100 per year in the highest year. The amount decreases every year after that. Less than $10 per month is a reasonable price to pay to get permanent space for state required kindergarten, appropriate permanent space for student special services, new multi-purpose rooms, new entrances, new adequate nurse’s rooms, upgraded plumbing, electrical, heating/ventilating and safety systems. It’s true that just making buildings “nicer” won’t guarantee a better education. But we’re not just making these buildings “nicer”; we’re adding new educational spaces for kindergarten and student special services and we’re making them safer. These renovations can make a better education easier to achieve. We’ve heard from parents and staff at Lancaster, North Salem and Barron that renovations there improved educational outcomes, especially for students who require special services. These proposed renovations can help make a better education easier to achieve at our other three elementary schools. Shouldn’t we help make a successful outcome easier to achieve? The March school warrant will have two articles to vote on in order to provide the funding for these renovations and upgrades. Article 2 will be for just over $16.2 million and Article 3 will add just over another $805 thousand to give a total of just over $17 million worth of necessary improvements to our buildings. It is a testimony to the soundness of this plan that the Budget Committee recommended both articles. Join me in voting “Yes” on Article 2 and 3 because these renovations will make a successful outcome for our students easier to achieve. Peter Morgan, Salem

Shaheen, Ayotte Lead Bipartisan Effort to Improve Mental Health Care and Awareness
submitted by the Office of U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen U.S. Senators Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) have introduced legislation aimed at expanding mental health first aid training and increasing the effectiveness of mental health care across the nation. The Mental Health First Aid Act of 2013 provides support for training programs to help the public identify, understand, and address crisis situations safely. The bill also calls for protocols for initiating timely referrals to mental health services available in local communities. “As a country we simply must do better when it comes to increasing access to mental health services, particularly for children and young adults,” said Senator Shaheen. “This bill represents an important step towards expanding access to mental health services and provides training for healthcare professionals and teachers who work with young people. We hope that programs like these will help diminish the stigma that sadly prevents too many from seeking the treatment they need. More importantly, this could play a role in preventing future tragedies like the one we saw in Newtown last month and that is a move that our entire country should be ready to rally around.” “Our bipartisan legislation takes an important first step toward strengthening our mental health system,” said Senator Ayotte. “Improving mental health training for those who work in our schools, communities and hospitals will give them the tools they need to identify warning signs and help individuals get treatment.” The bill will provide grants for mental health first aid training programs for groups of individuals such as teachers, first responders, police officers, school and college administrators, veterans, and nurses. The bill also outlines a particular focus on training in rural areas. The legislation is also being cosponsored by Sens. Michael Bennet (D-CO), Roy Blunt (R-MO), Jack Reed (D-RI), Marco Rubio (R-FL), and Debbie Stabenow (D-MI). Specifically, the legislation would: · Highlight available mental health resources in local communities, including Community Mental Health Centers, emergency psychiatric facilities, hospital emergency rooms and other programs offering psychiatric crisis beds; · Teach the warning signs and risk factors for schizophrenia, major clinical depression, panic attacks, anxiety disorders, trauma, and other common mental disorders; · Teach crisis de-escalation techniques; and · Provide trainees with a five-step action plan to help individuals in psychiatric crisis connect to professional mental health care. The bill is endorsed by the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, and the Suicide Prevention Action Network USA.

maintenance. Hargreaves noted his suggestion removed a budget committee representative. “What does the budget committee do,” he said, “They don’t meet in the summer.” Hargreaves added the budget committee would review the selectmen’s proposed operating budget, which would include and increases in revenue. Selectman Michael Lyons proposed an amendment to the bill suggesting the committee consist of a selectmen’s representative, one school board representative, six residents, and a state representative or senator. Keller favored the amendment saying it had an equal distribution of participation. The amendment passed with Selectman Everett McBride and Campbell in opposition. The board then unanimously voted in favor of the amended proposal. Hargreaves appointed Campbell to the committee with McBride to serve as an alternate. Dan Norris, chairman of New Hampshire Casino Now, was pleased with the results. “The important thing is the board move forward with the committee,” he said. Voters will face a non-binding referendum this March regarding support for expanded gaming at Rockingham Park. If lawmakers pass a bill and Rockingham Park is granted a license, residents would cast another vote on a binding referendum, to allow a casino to be constructed.

Barron School
submitted by Barron School Another new year has come and gone and everyone has come back to school rested, excited, and ready to learn. As you can imagine, students have lots of exciting ideas and stories to share about their vacations. Students have been working to capture these memories in words and have written some wonderful stories. Germs have been a big focus in the science classes. Proper hand washing and nose blowing techniques have been learned as well as how germs are spread. No one likes to get sick and hopefully the lessons learned will aid in fewer colds being spread. Sharing is an important skill but not when it comes to germs. Students have been working hard to grasp the concept of place value in our number system. Having the opportunity to work hands on with the concept really allows children to “see” exactly what is happening as they add or subtract ten or even one hundred to and from a number. Working with different counting patterns such as 2s, 5s and 10s really makes them think about how the number system works. In addition, they have been learning strategies for adding and subtracting numbers by adjusting them to make them easier to work with. For example, if you have 9 + 6 you can take one from 6 and put it with the 9 to make 10 changing the problem to 10 + 5 which is much easier to solve. They’ve also learned strategies to turn subtraction into addition by counting up. This foundation and ability to think and work flexibly with numbers is so very important for future success in mathematics. Making connections is so very important in all aspects of life and is critical when it comes to reading. Students have been learning about schema; memories and experiences that help us understand the world around us. When reading, schema is activated and students are learning to make connections to similar events in their lives as well as similarities amongst other stories they have read. This all helps to develop a clearer understanding of what is read, increasing comprehension. The coming of the New Year is also a time to reflect on our lives and make resolutions for improvement. At this time, students think about what they can do to improve themselves as learners and put it in writing. There is always something to work on in order to make ourselves better, whether student or adult.

Students Form a Special Partnership
submitted by St. Joseph Regional Catholic School A special partnership and love of reading is developing at St. Joseph Regional Catholic School between the second grade and kindergarten students. The children in Mrs. Palmer’s second grade class are sharing their love of reading with the children in Mrs. Byron’s kindergarten. This program began in September with the second graders performing thematic and seasonal skits for the kindergarteners. As the year is progressing, the children are now reading books followed with an interactive activity involving both classes. The children in second grade enjoy this special literature sharing time and take pride in how much they have accomplished and learned since they were in kindergarten. The kindergarten children eagerly anticipate each visit from their second grade friends. What a great early introduction to the love of reading in our school.

New Goals Set for 2013 Relay for Life
submitted by Sonny Tylus Relay for Life of Salem recently held its kick off meeting at the Knights of Columbus. This year’s Event Chair, Terri Conroy, started the meeting off by reviewing last year’s event. In 2012, the Salem event raised $146,000, had 543 participants, 113 cancer survivors and 30 new teams. The top team was PB&J, which raised $14,000. The second place team was the Knights of Columbus and the third place team was Synthroid Sluggers. Terri than talked about this year’s goal which are 60 teams, 679 participants, 200 cancer survivors and to raise $165,000. She said, “this is everyone’s event not the committee.” Bill Sherry introduced the guest speaker, Dr. Julian Chmieleki from the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Boston MA, and the Broad Institute where she works. The American Cancer Society funds her research. She started off by talking about how she lost her dad and this led to her becoming interested in cancer research. Her program matches treatment to a specific gene in the cancer and has made some progress. Her work is at the molecule level, specifically the makeup of the DNA in the cancer. She talked about how today’s cancer treatment is geared to the individual because not all people react to the same treatment. The American Cancer Society enables researchers like Julian to interact with patients,

clinicians and caregivers. Nanci Carney than talked about how ACS has set up a networking group called Cancer Action Networking or ACSCAN. The purpose is to advocate political positions. They meet with politicians on issues like raising the cigarette tax as well as supplying information to them. Peter Ames form the ACS Health Institute than explained how ACS spends the money the raised. They have an 800 number that is a resource for people to get information about all aspects of cancer. One of the programs they offer is the Road to Recovery. This Program offers free transportation to patients with cancer. Last year they gave 5,000 rides. Another one is the supplying of free wigs to women undergoing treatment. A big portion of the money is spent on research. There biggest challenge is to let people know what ACS does. This year’s honorary Chair is Mike Carney who talked about past chairs and their contribution to Relay. Mike said, “he is honored to be this year’s chair.” His final remark was “this is a team game and if you don’t commit you don’t win” which is quote from Belichick. This is year’s event will be held June 22 and 23. If you which to get involved, make a donation or start or join a team visit their website, www.relayforlife.org/salemnh.

FBLA at Microsoft
submitted by Rachel Ratay On January 14, students from Salem High School’s Future Business Leaders of America visited the Microsoft store at the Mall at Rockingham Park. During their visit, students toured the store and learned about potential prospective jobs that Microsoft offers. Students learned how product placement and store design affect a business. Students also learned about various products. In addition, students teamed up and created a skit to sell a specific product. All of the students did a great job and had a wonderful time. Salem High School’s Future Business Leaders of America would like to thank Microsoft for the opportunity.

Since the late 1600s, the lively tradition of contra dancing has kept people of all ages swinging and sashaying in barns, town halls and schools around the state. Contra dancing came to New Hampshire by way of the English colonists and remains popular in many communities, particularly in the Monadnock Region. Presenter Dudley Laufman brings this tradition to life with stories, poems and recordings of callers, musicians, and dancers, past and present. Live music, always integral to this dance form, will be played on the fiddle and melodeon. Willing audience members may be invited to dance the Virginia Reel. 2:30 p.m. Heritage Heights - Tad’s Place, 149 East Side Dr. (603) 229-1266. February 9: Syria: What’s Really Going On?, Nashua, NH.

She’ll examine the historical background of the dispute and give an objective assessment of the current situation. Abdelkader, an assistant professor in the political science department of the University of Massachusetts/ Lowell, specializes in comparative politics, international relations, and the Middle East and Muslim world. She has a Ph.D. in international relations and international comparative politics from the University of Maryland. No registration is required.

February 10: Dinah Whipple: Freed Slave, Wife of Prince and Teacher of the African Children, Nottingham, NH. The name of Dinah’s husband, Prince Whipple, is well known as the African man who was emancipated after accompanying his owner, General William Whipple, to fight in the Revolutionary War. He was one of 20 enslaved men who petitioned the NH Legislature for their freedom in 1779. Dinah Chase also had been enslaved up until the day she married Prince in 1781. After Prince’s death in 1797, Dinah began a school for African children in her home. This program, presented by Valerie Cunningham, describes Dinah’s world, first in New Castle as a slave, then as a freed married woman in Portsmouth, who became a teacher and community leader. 2 p.m. Blaisdell Memorial Library, 129 Stage Rd. (603) 679-8484. and spy for the Union cause and she battled courageously behind enemy lines during the Civil War, but Tubman is best known for her role as a conductor on the Underground Railroad. Though she is one of the most famous women in our nation’s history, we have come to know her life through fictionalized biographies written for school children. Quezaire-Presutti separates reality from myth to reconstruct a richer and far more accurate historical account of Tubman’s life. 7 p.m. Hopkinton Town Library, 61 Houston Dr. (603) 746-3663. February 14: A Visit With Queen Victoria, Littleton, NH. In 1837, teenaged Victoria ascended to the British throne, untrained and innocent. Those who would try to usurp her power underestimated this self-willed intelligent young woman whose mettle sustained her through her 63-year reign. Using Queen Victoria’s diary and letters, this program reveals the personal details of a powerful yet humane woman, who took seriously her role as monarch in a time of great expansion. She and her husband, Albert, set an example of high moral character and dedication, a novelty in the royal house after generations of scandal. Through her children she left a royal legacy; an era bears her name. Sally Mummey performs this living history in proper 19th Century clothing resplendent with Royal Orders. 1 p.m. Littleton Area Senior Center, 77 Riverglen Lane. (603) 444-6050. February 14: Crosscut: A Spoken Documentary, Rye, NH.

Through the stories of individuals, a picture of a rich culture emerges.

(603) 964-6281. February 15: Mary Todd Lincoln: Wife and Widow, Durham, NH. Join Mary Todd Lincoln as she reflects on her life.

Fire at Tuscan Kitchen
by S. Aaron Shamshoyan A wood fired oven is to blame for a fire that led to The Tuscan Kitchen being evacuated Sunday night. At about 6:15 p.m. fire crews traveling through the depot returning from a small fire at McKinnon’s saw the smoke and responded to the Main Street restaurant. The fire was contained to the oven and chimney, but caused damage to the ceiling and roof. Damage is estimated at $25,000. Fire crews spent about two hours on scene where they discovered the source of the fire to be a wood-fired oven in the restaurant. Derry, Pelham, Windham, and Methuen fire departments assisted Salem firefighters. No injuries were reported. The restaurant was open for normal operation by Monday.

“Thumbs down to Republicans. The New Hampshire brand subverts our ‘experiment in self government.’ They demand injustice and rig the ‘system’ to enforce iniquitous laws. They would never ratify the Thirteenth Amendment, they ignore the half of the Second Amendment that makes sense. Goldwater was a traitor to the Declaration of Independence. Extremism is only defensible to save our highest ideal that ‘all men are created equal.’ The ‘defense of liberty’ is what the South did when they seceded from our ‘great experiment in self government.’ The experiment goes on!” “Thumbs down to Senator Ayotte’s Benghazigate. The CIA was operating a ‘secured’ facility in Benghazi staffed by 40 security personnel and that two of the Americans killed at the consulate were responders from the fortified CIA facility in Benghazi. The CIA is in Benghazi working ‘operations’ that make Ayotte’s John Birch Society sponsors very happy.” “Thumbs up to our Second Amendment? And police chiefs who support it? Really sheeple? First of all, it’s not our Second Amendment. The Constitution was a contract between the several states giving guidelines to the Federal government it was about to create, to look after their newly acquired property – the Northwest Territory. Article 2 of the Bill of Rights simply reminds that fictional creation that Man’s rights were given to him by his Creator, and can never be infringed, ‘so help me God.’” “Thumbs down to the woman who was wondering what happened to the men in this country. You feel men are smarter, calmer, more professional and efficient? Wow! Don’t you have any self respect? You are a disgrace to all women. Have you heard the word equality? I can’t believe that you wrote that trash.” “Thumbs up to the announcer at the Salem High home hockey games. I have been following the team for years and it is really refreshing to have an announcer that can get the crowd going and passionate about the team!” “Thumbs down to the local news papers, including the Salem Community Patriot, for not covering the red hot Salem High hockey team. It has been a stellar season, most notably: highest scoring line in Div 1 NH hockey, #1 goalie in Div 1 NH hockey for 2 years in a row, Stingiest defense (least amount of goals let up). Come on, give the kids and coaches their due!”

“Thumbs up/ down. The selectmen made the right decision on the make up of the Gaming Committee. The final vote was one Selectman, one School Board, one State Rep or Senator, and six citizens to make up the committee. This was Jim Keller’s recommendation and it was the right one. Steve Campbell’s idea to have two Selectmen as Reps on the committee and one School Board representative was in my mind, unfair. The School Board should have equal representation. The picking of Steve Campbell to be the rep for the committee was a bad decision. While Steve is a smart person, he will bring a lot of negativity to the committee especially if they don’t see things his way.”

“Thumbs down to the woman saying that a women should never become President or hold any position of power. Women all over the world have been struggling to get equality for over 90 years. Who is to say men are any different than women, anyway? If it wasn’t for the women of the past, think of where you would be today.

Cultural Adventures at Home in NH
by Gloria Lavoie “Open Your Doors, Open Your Hearts.” That is International Cultural Exchange Service’s (ICES) motto. ICES is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to promoting a more peaceful world by increasing international awareness and understanding among people of the world through experiences in cultural sharing. The organization, together with their representatives, finds host families here in America for foreign exchange students from Asian, European and South American countries. Kati Kulesza, of Windham, is an ICES area representative. She is passionate about travel and even dreamed of being an exchange student when she was growing up in Finland. She now enjoys her role with ICES immensely. She explained, “I was looking for a part-time job and have always been interested in working with people. I love learning about new cultures and languages and I truly believe this is a wonderful opportunity not only for the students but also the American families! Since America is such a huge country many people never travel abroad and miss opportunities of meeting people of different background. It is such an amazing way of exposing your kids to new experience right at home and encouraging their cultural curiosity!” Felix from Germany, Philip from Sweden and Sindre from Norway are all attending Derry’s Pinkerton Academy this year as foreign exchange students. They all are enjoying the time they are spending in the United States with their host families. They are enjoying their classes as well, although their grades do not transfer to their home countries. “I get to retake the year when I get home,” explained Philip. He was willing to take on a summer’s worth of courses when he returns to his home in Sweden in order to experience life in America for a year. “I decided to take this trip to speak better English and to explore another culture,” he explained. Philip jokes that he hopes to sample every fast food restaurant in the area. He admits that fast food is not his favorite thing that he has discovered in America. “It’s not my thing really. I like shopping for clothes. Everything is so cheap compared to Sweden,” he said. Felix is mostly enjoying American schools. “The tests are much more relaxed than in Germany where we have strict time pressure,” he explained. Sindre explained that being away from his family is the hardest part but he enjoyed celebrating the holidays with his host family. “They started introducing me as another cousin. Everyone was really nice and open,” he explained. The boys seem the most impressed with how welcoming and friendly Americans are. “It’s very different compared to Sweden,” said Philip. “Everybody wants to be your friend here,” he added. The boys agree that it is very common in their countries for people to keep to themselves and avoid eye contact with no small talk on the subways and city streets. ICES places about 900 students per year. Kulesza interviews families and presents the families with multiple profiles of students that she feels would fit in best with their lifestyle. She speaks enthusiastically of her 6 exchange students that she has helped place locally. “One student was placed with a host family on a temporary basis because they already had a student but they liked him so much, they asked if he could stay,” she said. “They are all so ambitious. This is like a dream come true for them,” she added. Host Mom, Asteria, of Chester, enjoys having an exchange student residing with her family. “It’s really good. We really enjoy doing it. People don’t understand why we do it. It is an experience people should have. You’re not just doing the student a favor; you’re really enriching your life and extending your friendship base and your world beyond just your little town,” she explained. Host dad, John, enjoys talking politics and sharing views on world events with his exchange student. “Sindre commented how the President’s family is altogether up on stage and it is quite a family affair.

Maintaining Your

The Tax Return –What was the "Fiscal Cliff"?
W.F.Boutin EA - Total Tax Solutions LLC Without a question of doubt, the present tax code is cumbersome, complex and confusing. A large majority of taxpayers may not understand the code but do pretty much know what to expect they need to pay under the current system. We must all realize that whenever there is a tax cut, it will always benefit those with high incomes more so than lower incomes. Lower income earners should also realize that many of the benefits that they receive under the present code in tax credits or deductions are not available to the higher income brackets because most of these benefits have a phase-out income limit. To begin understanding the "fiscal cliff" and how it would have affected you, you must remember the tax laws as they existed in 2001. ( This may not be an easy task ). The biggest change that took place was the modification of the tax brackets. The tax brackets are divided into four categories of filing statuses, Single, Married Filing Joint or Qualifying Widower, Married Filing Separate and Head of Household. Then within each category , there were five percentage rates applied to a range of income. The tax rates that existed in this ancient time were 15%, 28%, 31%, 36% and 39.6%. The range of income varied for each category and percentage rate. A Single person's 15% range was $0 to $26,250 whereas the Married Filing Joint couple's 15% range was $0 to $43,850. ( Please note at this point that another matter of contention was that married people, who could be considered as two singles ( individual taxpayers) were penalized for being married. You can see that their 15% range was not 2 times the single rate. Also back in those days, the standard deduction for a single person was $4,400 while a married couple only received $7,350, thus the term marriage penalty tax.) The tables for single and married taxpayers were as follows:
0 to 26250 26250 to 63550 63550 to 132600 132600 to 288350 288350 to infinity Single 15% 28% 31% 36% 39.6%
0 to 43850 43850 to 105950 105950 to 161450 161450 to 288350 288350 to infinity Married 15% 28% 31% 35% 39.6 %

Three exchange students and area representative Kati Kulesza from Windham enjoy a day of skiing at Bretton Woods. not quite like that where he is from,” he commented. “It’s really interesting to hear his take on world events and also events that happen in the US,” he added. Host families are hoped for in Pelham, Windham, Hudson, Derry, Chester and Hampstead. Profiles are already coming in and Kulesza is hoping to match them with host families for the next school year where the students can help enrich the High School culture. Only students who demonstrate exemplary character, emotional and intellectual maturity as well as English speaking ability are accepted into the ICES program. While living in the United States, students have the same responsibilities as American teenagers as they must help with family chores and observe all family rules. When asked what criteria a host family needs to meet, Kulesza replied, “All they need to provide is meals and a bed. Most host families do it to expand their own children’s worlds. The students become part of your own family.” For more information on ICES, contact Kati Kulesza at kati.kulesza@gmail.com or view ICES website www.icesusa.org

Philip from Sweden, Felix from Germany and Sindre from Norway take time out from studying for their finals to talk about life in America.

So how do we calculate a tax from these tables. Take the amount that is on the taxable income line from the Form 1040 and interpolate the tax in this manner. A single person has taxable income of $35,600. The first $26,250 is multiplied by 15% , the balance from 26251 through 35600 is multiplied by 28%. Add the two totals together to arrive at the tax for the income. The table to use to do the calculation is dependent upon the filing status reported on the income tax return. ( The tax tables that exist in several IRS publications for any given tax year are derived from this method. However, the tables are only calculated to taxable income of $100,000. Therefore taxpayers who have taxable income over this amount must use the tax rate schedules.) With the bill passed in 2001, these 5 tax rates were increased to 6, with the range of income spread out over the new rates. These rates were first put into effect on the 2002 tax return. The percentage rates were scheduled to gradually decrease to their present levels of today, however, in 2003 the timetable was accelerated to reflect today's rates. In 2002 the new rates were 10%, 15%, 27%, 30%, 35% and 38.6%. Next week we will take a look at the tax rate schedules of 2003 and compare the same taxable income as above Next week- The 2003 Tax Rate Schedule Have a tax question?

by Jacob Gagnon The final minute of the game between the Salem High School Men’s Hockey team and Manchester Memorial High School unfolded as if in slow motion. The Blue Devils, down by a goal, pulled their goalkeeper in order to have an extra skater on the ice. The Salem fans, anxious and desperate, stomped their feet and clapped their hands in unison, shouting encouragement to their boys. The final buzzer sounded just as sophomore Cody Soucy made a diving stop in order to save an open-net goal, but the damage had already been done. The Crusaders, on Saturday evening, January 26 had halted the Blue Devils, 4-3, at the Salem Ice Center. “It lived up to the hype a little bit,” said Head Coach Mark McGinn of the battle between two of the top teams in the division. “First period we were kind of on it, the second they kind of came back. It was back and forth. Good effort, good game.” Just 1:18 into the first period, Salem High School, coming off of a dominating, 8-0 victory over Bishop Guertin High School on January 19th, struck first. Senior Shane Morin scored, while classmate Garnett Antkowiak and junior Dan Barbin assisted. Sophomore Cody Soucy celebrates his first goal of the night against Memorial.

15th goals of the season on Saturday. Seconds later, the Crusaders put one past the Blue Devils to even it up again. With 1:11 remaining, Memorial took the lead for the first time all game with an unassisted goal. It was a lead they were destined to maintain. The Blue Devils, as any strong program is able to do, will make adjustments and use this loss as a lesson. Or, for Coach McGinn, three lessons. “One is stay out of the box. Two is you have to put a full game together. Three is you need to practice during the week, prepare better,” said McGinn. “Those are pretty much the three lessons that we got out of here today.” With the loss, the Blue Devils fall to 8-2-1 on the season. They will return to the ice in practice with a whole new motivation moving forward. They now know that, despite a strong game, they are just as vulnerable as any other team in the third period. “We’re going to pick practice up. We did a lot of good things too tonight, so we’re not going to change a whole bunch, but that fullgame effort has to get better. We’ll work on that in practice,” said McGinn. “We’re going to come back and play our hardest and do what we can do for the next games,” said Soucy. “We got to keep working. We let down a little and we can’t do that and that.” McGinn, Soucy, and the rest of the Salem High Hockey squad are aware, with the postseason looming in the near future, that it will take a whole new level of effort in order to hoist a New Hampshire State Championship. It is the final period of a hockey game, that the real victors are declared. The Blue Devils, through practice, preparation and production, plan to be that team.

Girl’s Gymnastics Team Remains Unbeaten

by Jacob Gagnon Salem High School Girl’s Gymnastics Head Coach Kyle Redmond can sum up her first season with the team simply and happily: “I don’t know how I’ll ever be able to top this season with the group of girls that we have.” It is that kind of year for the Blue Devils and Redmond in her inaugural campaign as Salem’s Coach. With their most recent victory, Salem improved to 6-0 on the season. On Wednesday, January 23, the Salem Girl’s Gymnastics team defeated Bedford, Keene, Milford, Merrimack Pelham, Souhegan, WiltonLyndborough and Windham High Schools in a multiple-team meet in Salem. The Blue Devils earned the victory with a team score of 135.3 points. As she has done all year, Nina Whittaker propelled her team into the top spot with leading performances in the Vault (9.3), Floor (9.4) and All-Around (35.8) categories. “Nina Whitaker has been a huge score for us all season,” said Redmond. Finishing just behind Whittaker in the All-Around scores was Kadie Tommasi (35.55 points), who has only recently returned from injury. It is yet another strong addition to a seemingly unstoppable Salem team. “Our seniors are stepping up. Every girl on the team has competed this year and they’ve all done exceptionally well for us. There isn’t one person who hasn’t put forth their best effort for the team,”

said Redmond. The Blue Devils plan to finish the season with an untarnished record as they will host Pinkerton Academy on Thursday, January 31, in the final meet of the season. Their pursuit of perfection will culminate on Saturday, February 16, in the State Championship meet hosted by Salem High School. Redmond, along with her athletes, are confident in their ability to score, to win, yet not satisfied with merely victory. It is the mark of true champions to want to constantly and continually improve. “The success can be attributed to the girls showing up for every workout and wanting to be there and wanting to work hard, change their routines and make them better , learn harder skills,” said Redmond. “Every girl wants to get better. They’re not just going to rest on the routines that they have. They still want to progress.” Whether Salem High School, led by Whittaker, will be able to complete the 2013 season unbeaten, Redmond and her team will maintain positive memories of their first season together. “Nothing will ever compare to your first year especially when you have such a great group of girls and such a talented team that’s doing so well,” said Redmond. “It will definitely be one to remember.” Redmond hopes that the State Championship meet will provide another memory they will never forget.

Nina Whittaker prepares for a vault. Whittaker has led the Blue Devils all season.
