Hall of Fame Inductees
by Chris White The Salem/Woodbury Hall of Fame held its 27th annual induction ceremony at Atkinson Country Club on Friday, September 25. Family and friends of the inductees gathered for the evening to have dinner and then watched the honoring of the five distinguished Salem High School alumni. The class of 2009 included Bernard H. Campbell ’74, Charles Samataro III ’82, Jonathan K. Barry ’94, Lt. Gary J. Khoury ’85, and Dr. Susan Habinowski Chow ’90.

He has also served on the Salem Planning Board and is a member of The Greater Salem Chamber of Commerce. At Salem High School, he was a varsity track manager and a member of the 1974 All-State Orchestra. He also served as the senior class vice president. Campbell has been calling Salem High School football games for years on Salem’s local station. He has been a dedicated broadcaster and a detailed statistician for the Blue Devils. “The stats were a way to sound more knowledgeable and make the broadcast more interesting,” Campbell said in his induction speech.

Charles Samataro III ’82
Mr. Charles Samataro competed for four years in the soccer program during high school. In 1979, he was recognized as the Boy Scout of the Year and was later elected to “Order of the Arrow,” a National Camping Honor Society. After graduating from Salem, probably his most notable accomplishment is working as a senior videographer and producer at the ESPN Television Network. Samataro has won five Emmy Awards, the most prestigious honor in the television industry. His roots are deep within Salem High School as he was dedicated to the Salem High School Television Production Program and took advantage of career opportunities that were presented to him after gaining valuable experience there. “To think when I was a freshman that I would have the career that I have is ironic,” Samataro said. “I just latched on to a growing company and succeeded.”

Salem Community Patriot
October 2, 2009 - 3

Town Property Use Policies Questioned
by Jay Hobson Laurel Redden, chair of the Democratic Town Committee, appeared before the board of selectmen to voice her concerns regarding the denial by Kelley Library staff of an event sponsored by her committee to discuss the issue of healthcare reform last month. “The triggering event for bringing this to your attention is an event that we had scheduled at the library last month and we were told the day before the event took place that we could not have the event at the library because it was a topic deemed ‘political.’” Redden stated that “we were doing a forum on healthcare and had invited guests who were experts in the academic and healthcare fields that it was to be a non-partisan informational session.” The proposed healthcare forum at the library was scheduled at a time when politicians were holding similar events around the country that were drawing opposition and vocal demonstrations. Redden said that she wasn’t looking for the library staff to be “admonished” stating that if it was specifically related to the library they would have brought their concerns to the library’s trustees and “had it taken care of at that level.” Redden said that this had happened several times with various town department staff people over the past few years. Redden’s stated purpose in presenting the issue to the board was the cessation of staff interpreting the policy independently and she questioned whether the policy (regarding the use of town property) was written down or “made up on the spur of the moment.” She asked the board to review the situation to make sure that policy was written and uniformly applied. Selectmen Mike Lyons said that because the library had its own governing body in the library the board of trustees and the selectmen had no authority over the library. “I think we’re all in agreement that the library is off the table because we have no authority there so what specifically are we talking about?” Redden said that her presumption was that town properties would have a uniform town policy and that the selectmen would have oversight. “Town-wide, my presumption was that any property owned by the town and managed by the town with town funds should have some policy,” Redden said citing that “across the street” the school district has a six page policy regulating how different organizations can use school property. After some discussion the selectmen reiterated that the library board of trustees is the organization that Redden needed to address her concerns with and that the trustees have final say on the matter.

Turning Tragedy into Triumph
submitted by Erin Robinson Usually the Merrimack Habitat for Humanity is in a position to help several families each year. But when a January 2008 fire ravaged five homes under construction in Lawrence, MA, the organization was left looking to others for help. With almost an entire block destroyed, families in need lost their homes before they even had a chance to move in. Facing a grim situation, the staff of Merrimack Valley Habitat for Humanity and community volunteers committed to rebuilding the homes as quickly as possible. MSI Mechanical Systems of Salem answered the call for help by volunteering to install HVAC systems for an entire duplex. The company’s donation totaled more than $22,000. “In these tough times, it’s hard for anyone to help,” said Brian Hooper, vice president of operations for MSI Mechanical Systems. “We wanted to do more than write a check. We’re a specialty trade, and we knew we could make our abilities useful. We all worked hand in hand to get it done.” After a 14-month delay, families are now settled into their new homes. “They held a blessing for the houses, and it was a fabulous event,” Hooper said. “It was very emotional for the families and also for those of us involved in the project.” Habitat for Humanity is just one of the organizations MSI Mechanical supports. Hooper was moved to help others in need after meeting a Make-A-Wish family while on vacation at Disney World. The experience touched Hooper’s entire family, and they decided they could use their business connections to make an impact in Salem. Hooper reached out to the Make-AWish Foundation of New Hampshire to help launch the Driving for Dreams campaign, which allows local corporations to sponsor a wish and emblazon their support for the foundation on their vehicles as a way to remind and encourage others to make a difference. In the past two years the company also has volunteered for the Boys & Girls Club of Salem, as well as presented $1,000 to the New Hampshire Food Bank in support of the organization’s first annual golf tournament. “We’ve decided that giving back to our community is very important to us,” Hooper says. “Everyone in the community has been great to us by giving us their business, so it’s our turn to give back.” Hooper admits that finding the resources to donate has become harder during the last year, but he remains optimistic that other contractors can make a difference even with a smaller budget. “The biggest thing is to not get overwhelmed,” he says. “Pick something that means a lot to you and do what you can. Every little bit helps.”

decision-making ability when choosing one of his many Czars. Oh, I know a number of presidents had Czars, but President Obama picks a man (Van Jones) who is a self-professed Communist, an excon, and a racist. Perhaps this was an example of the type of change Obama wanted? Maybe some of you Obamaites out there can write letters explaining why President Obama needs approximately 30 Czars, paid by the taxpayers, to help him do a job that the people elected him to do, and why a self-professed communist and an ex-con was among them. President Obama’s brilliance and competence again radiated when he intervened in the Black Panther voting intimidation case when he ordered all charges dropped due to lack of evidence. In fact, there were mounds of evidence to prove the voting intimidation did exist, specifically the video footage. Then there was President Obama’s great apology tour to Europe and the Middle East. Imagine a president of the United States apologizing to the world for America — another prime example of his inadequacy to be president. Simply put, a president of the United States just doesn’t do that. Another action that brings more evidence of his inability to lead is his government healthcare bill. President Obama wants to rush this healthcare bill through the House and Senate with little or no research to impacts on taxpayers, the medical profession, and the huge deficit. It appears President Obama missed the day they taught the basics of simple math. Any intelligent and competent person knows you don’t rush a bill of this magnitude through without realizing what the impacts are and will be in the short and long term. That exhaustive research alone would take many months and possibly years. The majority of polls are reflecting a lack of confidence in President Obama, and for good reason. A competent leader is able to provide specific details of a plan that will convince people the plan will work. To date, President Obama has failed to supply any of the details and failed to convince lawmakers, some in his own Party, that his plan will work. But he still wants the lawmakers to hurry up and pass it. What is the rush? Is there a hidden agenda? To date, they are adding and subtracting from this bill with still no majority consensus. And we can’t blame the Republicans for this one. The Democrats have the majority in both the House and Senate and do not need the Republican vote to pass this bill and put it into law. If President Obama’s plan is so great, why hasn’t it passed? For President Obama to have created such a debacle exemplifies rash and incompetent decision-making by a president. Believe it or not, there are other issues more important in America that deserve the attention of our lawmakers. One more example of a man out of his element is the President Obama-requested and approved provision in the stimulus package, which grants billions of our tax dollars to the ACORN organization. Does President Obama really know what is going on? For President Obama to have a proven ongoing close association with the ACORN organization that has blatantly conducted and still is conducting illegal activities is very difficult to understand. May I also say that all President Obama’s actions to date indicate that his Harvard education didn’t give him an advantage? A degree from Harvard doesn’t automatically guarantee common sense and competency. President Obama’s actions to date prove me correct. I do, however, give President Obama some credit in the ability to deceive some Americans into believing that his (in my opinion) destructive, radical, left-wing agenda will work. He is, after all, the master of rhetoric (with the teleprompter). You Obamaites may think he is very competent as president and you are certainly entitled to that opinion. So far, in my eyes, President Obama has exhibited an amazing level of intervention never before seen by a U.S. president, and his obvious goal of expanding the government poses a very serious risk to our Constitution.

Charter Reform Ideas

number for groups to quickly make decisions. B. The town manager’s position becomes an elected one (like a mayor). C. There is no budget committee. The town manager comes up with a budget, and the council can deny/change it with at least a 60-percent majority. D. Items A-C in the selectmen option apply with this method as well. Obviously these ideas require more refinement, but at least they are a starting point toward creating a streamlined, but accountable, town government. Richard Carlin - Salem

I Nominate Charlie Bass to Run for Governor
My Fellow Granite State Voters, The State of New Hampshire is on the move. The problem is, under the leadership of Gov. John Lynch, NH is moving in the wrong direction. According to the Government Performance Project conducted by The Pew Charitable Trust, NH ranks dead last in how well we manage employees, budgets, finances, and infrastructure. Last! Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine, and Rhode Island all ranked higher than we did. I’m mad as hell – 50th is not good enough for NH! I have seen and waited long enough. The past few election cycles we’ve all sat back and waited for someone to announce their candidacy for Governor of NH. This cycle, I decided that waiting isn’t for me. So I have searched for a viable candidate for NH’s corner office. Over the past few months I’ve talked to many activists throughout NH and one name keeps coming up over and over again. He’s well-known throughout the state. He would appeal to both Republican and Independent voters. He has a tremendous amount of experience and is respected across the aisle. That man, my friends, is Charlie Bass. He is a Republican who can beat John Lynch and return NH to economic health! I ask you to please join me in a ‘Draft Charlie Bass for Governor of New Hampshire’ campaign. All you have to do is send Charlie Bass a note by e-mail or Facebook asking him to save NH by running for Governor of New Hampshire in 2010. Charlie Bass’s e-mail is scott@montagnecom munication.com. Or you can log onto Charlie’s Facebook page, become a sponsor, and leave a message. Please pass this on throughout your families, friends, and organizational e-mail lists. We can save NH, but we need to start today. Jeffrey S. Hatch - Salem

President Obama’s Intelligence
So some say President Obama is an exceptionally brilliant man and very competent to be President of America. Well, to date, you can’t prove that by me, and let me tell you why. For starters, let me refresh your memory: I can remember during Obama’s campaign, he stated he had completed a visit to 57 states and would like to visit the remaining two states. (I still have that unbelievable audio). “Duh, Obama, we have only 50 states.” I am no big fan of Bush, but imagine if Bush said that? Wow — he would have won first prize in the buffoon contest, happily presented by the liberal media, and all the liberal media networks would have material for months. Not very long after Obama was elected President, he demonstrated his lack of competency with his comments in the Professor Gates and Sargeant Crowley incident. Oh, I forgot, he didn’t have his teleprompter to tell him what to say, or better yet, what not to say. Then we have more evidence of his incompetent

of billions of our tax dollars to bail them out of their various predicaments. Here’s a partial list of where we stand now, and all of these facts are easily Google-able. First, the recession is over, per Fed chairman Ben Bernanke, and has been from anywhere from mid-July to early August. The bailout packages that so many of us held our noses over for AIG, et al, succeeded in staving off what could’ve been a worldwide financial and insurance meltdown. The Cash for Clunkers program worked beyond even the planners’ wildest dreams, both for new car dealers as well as scrap metal junkyards. National home building numbers are up dramatically and have been for months, as the costs for both construction and renovating is way down. The NYSE is approaching 10,000 again, unthinkable just last January. Only our sorry unemployment numbers, 9.7 percent last month and about the same for September, remain a huge problem, but, historically, employment figures are always the last ones to rise after a recession. Three great speeches. Lots of verifiable information; certainly more than you’ll ever hear from Rush and friends. And more than we got in eight painful years of an administration that caused and sat on the problems that many of the people who voted for them back then are blaming President Barack Obama and the Democrats for now. William F. Klessens - Salem as the interrogation techniques the Bush administration used. If the terrorists are planning another attack that could kill my family, I will water-board them myself if it keeps them safe. Your twisted facts are amazing. Unlike President Obama, Mr. Bush has a lot of administrative experience. Bush was governor of Texas and was a successful businessman (including ownership of a baseball team). President Obama has no experience running anything (not a company, state, or local government), and his inexperience is destroying this country at record speed. When Mr. Bush was very young, like many young people, he drank too much and got caught. Are you telling me you never made a mistake when you were young and stupid? But Bush straightened his life out and became a successful businessman and politician. You spoke of Gore and Kerry in your letter. Again, twisted facts! Kerry was NOT a war hero, according to the men who served with him. And Gore lost the election because more Americans voted for Bush. Gore should have used Clinton to help him get elected, but distanced himself because of the lies and scandals. Even with all of Clinton’s faults, the majority of Democrats still liked him and punished Gore for not letting Clinton campaign for him. Your Republican friends told you they voted against Gore and Kerry? I voted for Bush because I believed then and now that he could keep us safe! Ask your Republican friends if they feel safe now?

Is Hunting Good for kids?

Three Great Speeches
President Barack Obama, who, with his administration, has been fighting an increasingly difficult information battle against the GOP Congress as well as America’s media-led conservative populace, thrice oratorically delivered this month via our television airwaves. Seeking to drive a stake through Republican obstruction tactics re: the Democrat party’s solutions to many of the policy failures that the GOP caused over the past eight years, President Obama concentrated on three of the most important subjects facing our nation right now: America’s future, as engendered in our children, his universal healthcare package, and the current turnaround from the tortured economy his team inherited from the Bush administration. First, despite much criticism from Republican Party operatives nationwide, as well as many misguided anti-Obama citizens, the president delivered a beautifully nuanced, totally apolitical address on September 8 to America’s school children. Why any thinking person would have a problem with the nation’s leader imparting a message of hope and perseverance to our youth, a message absent of the partisanship and rancor inherent in so many “adult level” discussions in our increasingly intolerant society, shows just how anger and ignorance have taken over the GOP since the Bush years. President Obama dealt with anecdotal examples of his audience’s peers and how they succeeded due to their own hard work, as well as discussed their futures, dreams, and responsibilities in more general terms. And our conservative minority didn’t do themselves proud, as many of them in both print and airwaves succeeded in both insulting President Obama’s useful message even before he gave the address, as well as diminished his office by preventing children from many school districts from viewing the oration live. President Obama’s September 9 nationally televised healthcare speech explained in simple terms the details of this economically-necessary plan, and stands as his administration’s attempt to cut through the Beck, Limbaugh, Savage, Hannityinspired lunacy that so many Americans incomprehensibly accept as facts. After giving several examples of American citizens caught in the crosshairs of a system that has grown far too expensive and impersonal, the president articulated the basics of “Obamacare”: NOBODY will be forced to leave their existing coverage if they don’t want to, pre-existing conditions WILL be covered, illegal immigrants ARE exempt from the coverage, large businesses WILL BE REQUIRED to cover their employees, along with many other beneficial rules. The still-distrustful are urged to go online and read the speech, check out some credible websites to see how it dovetails with the bill that Washington is currently working on, and then compare all this to the puerile, viral junk being blathered out by media hate mongers, none of whom ever caring a whit about your lives or mine, while happily cheerleading America crumbling during the Bush years because their boys were doing the destruction. Finally, on September 14, President Obama addressed the press in New York to update the nation on the continuing financial recovery. After delivering a snapshot of where the nation stood last January, with the stock market in the 7,000s, banks and other credit institutions failing, and America losing over half a million jobs every month, he explained the progress in many areas that have been made since then. Afterwards, he stated some of the new rules that our financial organizations will have to abide by, certainly a reasonable request seeing that both the Bush administration, as well as his own, had just spent hundreds

It is a unique privilege to have a column read by hunters and non-hunters alike. You allow me to share my interests and passions in the outdoors, and I thank you. Occasionally, I find a unique book that I would like for each of you to purchase. It answers the questions: Is hunting good for kids? Why do they do it? Is it sport or is it instinctive? Does hunting encourage violence or does it teach empathy and compassion? Would it be a more peaceful world if more men hunted? These are some of the questions addressed in a new book entitled From Boys to Men of Heart: Hunting as Rite of Passage. Award-winning author Randall L. Eaton, Ph.D. is a behavioral scientist with an international reputation in wildlife conservation who has been studying hunting for 35 years. “It’s a good thing for kids to spend more time outside, but I doubt that the connection they make with nature is deep enough to promote a conservation ethic.” In his opinion, “Not only are hunting and fishing better for kids, kids who hunt and fish are better for the environment.” For more information, contact Dr. Randall Eaton at 513-2442826 or at reaton@eoni.com.

Response on Health Care Letter
This is in response to the letter from Jane Lang Slavin about the public option on health care. At least she did not attribute the concern of people about a governmentrun option to racism, just that all who are opposed are just stupid. Perhaps she should take in account what happened with the Cash for Clunkers program that the government sponsored, which was totally under-funded. Maybe she should check to see if her bulb is out.

The President’s Economy
This is President Obama’s economy, not former President Bush’s, and it’s long overdue that the Obama administration, the Democrats in Congress, and their liberal supporters stop blaming others for their own eye-popping mistakes. The liberal tunnelvision would be laughable if the damage they are creating wasn’t so dangerous. The American people are getting fed up with the constant excuses that this administration inherited the bad economy, and the near collapse of the banking industry to justify the binge spending, as well as the takeover of private businesses, banks, and our healthcare system. Let me remind you, Mr. Ippolito, who was in charge of the banking and finance committees in Congress for the last three years. Barney Frank and Chris Dodd were, and still are, the committee chairmen. Both Frank and Dodd pressured Fannie and Freddie to lower mortgage requirements to allow low-income people to buy homes. Frank stated that “welfare and paroled felons should be able to buy a home just like anyone else.” And Frank is pressuring Fannie again to lower the loan requirements to more low-income home buyers. The liberals never learn from their mistakes! The Bush administration kept us safe for eight years since 9/11. People felt safe from another attack because of Bush’s hard stance against terrorism and our enemies. We can’t even call the killers of 3,000 Americans terrorists anymore and President Obama wants to transfer and try those killers in the U.S. If any of those killers are set free because of a technicality, will you invite them to live in your neighborhood? When Bush took office, he had to rebuild a muchdepleted military because Clinton balanced his budget with a 35 percent cut to the military budget. And Clinton left office with a budget surplus, thanks to the Republicancontrolled Congress headed by Newt Gingrich. Eric Holder has targeted the Bush administration and the CIA for the enhanced interrogation techniques. Why isn’t he also investigating the Clinton administration for their use of rendition? President Obama is considering the same treatment of detainees now. That is real torture (beatings, threats, sleep deprivation). Flying the terrorists to countries like Egypt with legalized torture should be just as criminal to you

Rotary Club Fundraiser at Victorian Park
by Jay Hobson The Rotary Club of Greater Salem held a fundraiser at Victorian Park where visitors could play “goofy golf” otherwise known as miniature golf to raise funds for the Rotary Club’s effort to eradicate polio. “Polio has been pretty much erased from the United States since the 70s, but it has re-surfaced in countries like Afghanistan, Nigeria and Pakistan. Our organization provides support to local governments in an effort to rid the planet of this disease,” Mark McGinn of the Salem Rotary Club said. The Rotary Club of Greater Salem was once known as the Salem-Methuen Rotary Club but branched out on its own in 2001 with 20 charter members.

Longtime Salem Resident and Community Leader Organizes a Fundraiser
Joe Prestipino, a longtime resident of Kingston, has been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. In an effort to assist with medical expenses and lessen the stress that accompanies such an illness, a ‘Gathering of Giving’ has been planned. Community leaders, business owners, and co-workers have joined together to host a fundraiser to be held on Wednesday, October 7. The gathering will take place on the grounds of Freshwater Farms in Atkinson from 4- 6 p.m. Azim Jamal, international inspirational speaker and co-author of the bestseller The Power of Giving - How Giving Back Enriches Us All is the guest speaker for the gathering. Joe and his wife Elaine owned Granite Creek Garden Center, a landscaping design and installation company located in Brentwood. Longtime friend and colleague Rhonda Locke describes Joe as a true nursery man with a broad product knowledge who always took the time to answer your questions. Locke recalls that Joe especially liked the holiday season, probably because he was able to share in the joy of selecting a Christmas tree with your family or spraying ‘wilt pruf’ on your tree to make it last longer and protect your family from fire. “Joe has always been there, every step of the way, offering to lend a hand and share his knowledge,” says Locke. Now, as we look forward to another holiday season with families and friends, it is our turn to lend a hand and give back to Joe and his family. Former State Senator and businessman Chuck Morse says he was saddened to learn of Joe’s illness and considers it an honor that he is able to offer his support at this time. “I ask and encourage all who are able, according to their means, to join me at the ‘Gathering of Giving’ for Joe and his family,” said Morse. We have three opportunities to give. The event ticket is $100. The raffle ticket for a chance to win a Canobie Lake Park Screeemfest family package is $10. Event sponsorships are available for $500. Personal donations in any amount are gratefully appreciated. Please make checks payable to Friends of Joe Prestipino c/o Salem Cooperative Bank, 3 South Broadway, Salem NH 03079. Tickets for the event may be reserved by calling the offices of Chuck Morse at 642-6400.

School News

Soule School Receives Grant
The Soule school has been fortunate to be selected to receive a financial grant through the Early Childhood Reading Grant offered by Target Stores. This monetary grant will enable the school to set up a book room, purchase leveled texts, and other materials that will make strategic literacy teaching possible. This book room is available to all staff and contains sets of books that are leveled by difficulty. Teachers can borrow sets of books to bring into their classrooms for small group instruction. Second-, third-, or fourth-grade teachers can use some of these books. The school has been working to help students build a love of reading and writing; many of them have become enthusiastic about reading because of their teachers’ influence. The Soule School community would like to extend their warmest appreciation to Target for allowing them to improve and better the reading program to help many children develop a love for reading.

North Salem PTA Happenings
Get ready to “mangia” as they say in Italian! That means EAT, and that’s what you’ll do (and plenty of it) at North Salem’s “Pasta Palooza” on Friday evening, September 25. Our fifth graders will be helping to host this family-style meal of salad, bread, pasta, and dessert. Families will need to bring their own soft drinks, juice, or water. Donations of peanut-free desserts are welcome and may be brought in that day or evening. Also, 50/50 raffle tickets will be sold that evening with proceeds to benefit our playground fund. Please fill out the form that was sent home with your child if you are interested in attending. There will be two seatings; the first starting at 5:30 p.m., and the second at 6:45 p.m. Due to fire regulations, there is a limit to the number of people we can accommodate, so forms and money will be accepted on a first-come, firstserved basis. The fundraiser has begun! By now, you’ve probably received the catalogues for our annual fundraiser. Once again, students will be able to sell a variety of great items for a great cause – our school! This year, we are offering more of a variety than ever before. Returning once again is the popular line of “peanut-free” coffee cakes, as well as some delectable cookies, cake, bread, and pretzel mixes. Many of our best-selling items, like gift wrap, candles, house wares, candy, and photo plates will also be offered. This is the biggest fundraiser for North Salem, and we are hoping for your support. The fundraiser ends on Thursday, October 1, at which time all the money and order forms must be sent in to school. Fundraiser items cannot be picked up until all payments are made. Thank you in advance. The Fall Open House was well attended by North Salem parents. Teachers and staff were able to discuss overall school/classroom expectations, regulations and procedures. We hope everyone had a fun and informative evening. Thank you to all the North Salem teachers and staff, and to Principal Janice Wilkins for all their hard work preparing for the evening. In addition, the first meeting of the North Salem PTA was a great success. We welcomed many new faces as well as existing members. The PTA discussed and approved several new and exciting programs for the upcoming year. One major goal for this year is to raise funds for a brand-new school playground. The playground committee is seeking new members in order to realize this goal. Anyone interested in becoming part of the playground committee can email Rebecca Daniels at playground@northsalempta.org. If you are interested in becoming part of the PTA, please contact Jon Tripp at membership@northsalempta. org.

School Board Wants Your Input Proposed Facilities Master Plan
The Salem School Board will host two public forums concerning a proposed facilities master plan. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and offer recommendations for consideration. The architects, members of the school board, and the administration officials will provide information and solicit thoughtful contributions from community members. It is the School Board’s intent to bring forward a master plan designed to meet the community’s long-term school facility needs, and your input will be most helpful. The current facilities require renovation to address infrastructure needs, such as plumbing, electrical, and mechanical systems. Further, several academic and support service programs are conducted in sub-standard spaces, such as converted storage closets, the tops of stairwells, and the end corners of hallways. Finally, some classes and programs are meeting in portable classrooms. A facilities master plan will offer solutions to such problems and guide decisions to address infrastructure needs for several years to come. Your help is essential as we look to members of the community to ensure we give consideration to available options. School district officials hope everyone takes the time to attend one of the sessions to receive first-hand plan information and offer thoughts and ideas. Both of these sessions are scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. in Salem High School’s Seifert Auditorium on Tuesday, October 6, and again on Thursday, October 8. The public forum is being offered twice to provide individuals the option to attend one date or the other. Again, your input is invaluable to us so please take the time to attend. District officials are most grateful for everyone’s support and valuable assistance.

Montessori School Celebrates Day of Peace
submitted by Roberta Wilson On September 21, children at the Merrimack Valley Montessori School of Salem recognized the United Nation’s International Day of Peace with a special celebration. Approximately 55 students and eight teachers at MVMS joined over 80,000 Montessori students from 35 countries all over the world in an event to sing peace around the world. The goal was to have a school in each time zone sing the children’s song Light a Candle for Peace, starting in New Zealand and ending in the Hawaiian Islands 24 hours later. The song, written by Shelley Murley of Vancouver British Columbia, was taught to children in participating schools all around the world, with most schools also incorporating sign language with the song. In Salem, the students, 3 to 6 years old, stood in a circle in the school’s peace garden, lit a candle, and all sang and signed together at 10:55 a.m. for 10 minutes. After, they logged their time on a special website with students and schools from around the globe. By the end of International Peace Day, 80,163 students in 35 countries around the globe had participated. More information and the lyrics for this special children’s song is available at http://singpeacearoundtheworld. blogspot.com/.

North Salem School
We hope everyone had a successful fundraising effort! The fundraiser officially ends this week, at which time all order forms and payments should be returned to the school. If you still have the order forms and/or outstanding payments, please return them to the school as soon as possible. Fundraiser items cannot be picked up until all payments have been made. Thank you in advance. All items can be picked up on distribution day, which will be held on October 29. Any questions can be directed to fundraiser@northsalempta.org. There are still some volunteer positions available through the North Salem PTA. The After-School Program, which provides fun activities for Grades 1-5, is looking for a co-chair to help find entertaining children’s programs and to help staff these programs. In addition, the Holiday Parade Float Committee is looking for a chair to lead the team to create a festive float for Salem’s Annual Holiday Parade. General volunteers are needed throughout the school for many other activities such as baking at home, creating appealing bulletin boards, and other general assistance. Please take a minute to fill out the PTA Volunteer Form that was sent home with your child. Volunteering is a great way to become an integral part of your child’s education. For more information, please contact Valerie Conneilly at volunteers@northsalempta.org. Don’t forget to turn in those “Boxtops for Education”! Each box top can earn up to 10 cents for our school. If you multiply that by the 385 students here at North Salem, that means lots and lots of money for our school. These funds are used to buy replacement toys and new games for use by our students on the playground. Please read the “Boxtops for Education” form that was sent home with your child last week for more information on how you can support our school. The program “Character Counts at North Salem” is back at North Salem. The program, which teaches ethical behavior, was introduced into the school two years ago and is already having a positive impact on students. The program provides teachers with tools they need to help strengthen students’ moral compass. Character Counts is centered on the six pillars of character: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship. The school’s guidance counselor teaches students all about each trait in the classroom and ways that they can live by the program. Students will earn recognition when a staff member “catches” a student demonstrating one of these traits. Students receive special certificates and recognition during morning announcements, as well as their names in the newspaper. The current trait focus is “Respect.” Students caught being respectful last week include: Liam Tremblay, A.J. Conneilly, Ryan Allard, Cassandra Lira, Anthony Quintal, Katherine Hamlin, Mathieu Raymond, Kierstin Lock, Xiara Glickel, Taylor Vartanian, Casey Myer, Abigail Harris, James MacBride, Jillian St. Hilaire, Connor Silloway, Molly Porter, Kristen Carney, Sarah Rochdi, Paul St. Louis, Drew Leamy, Kaleb Brewstart, Tyler Bedrosian, and Raymond Giuffre.

Barron School
Second graders at the Barron School are back and ready to learn! The first weeks of school involve a lot of listening as routines and rules are established in each classroom. Everyone is working hard to learn each other’s names as new friendships are made. It’s also time to wipe away the cobwebs and review our basic skills in Phonics, Reading, Writing, and Math. As classroom communities are established, we will begin learning about many different communities we are a part of. By the looks of all the happy, eager faces, the 2009-2010 school year will be an awesome one! As a new school year gets underway, third-grade students eagerly anticipate a year of learning, fun, and growing. Students look forward to reading chapter books, writing fiction and non-fiction stories, and learning to write in cursive. Students will be encouraged to use math skills for problem solving to practice math facts weekly. Map skills have already been introduced and will be an important on-going skill in the Social Studies area. Science will include study, making predictions, and constructing models. Third-grade classrooms will be alive with activities from now until June. Making new friends, learning to respect one another, and working as a team is already underway. Since learning is a life-long endeavor, it’s rewarding to hear students say, “Learning is fun.” Once again, third graders at the Barron school have the right attitude for a successful year.

Salem’s Joao Vitor keeps the ball away from the Astros. Devils proved many of their doubters wrong. Running back Max Jacques led the rushing attack as usual with 152 yards on 27 carries. Meanwhile, his backfield mates took care of the scoring. Jerickson Fedrick ran the ball for two touchdowns on 10 carries for 71 yards and Alex Sobrado punched in for six points from the goal line as he collected 67 yards on 11 carries. Once again, the hard work of the offensive line freed up the Salem backs and allowed quarterback Matt Cannone to complete five passes for 44 yards. He completed four of his passes to tight end Kyle Henrick for 40 yards and one pass to Jacques for a gain of four. Kicker Chris Saulnier connected on all three extra point attempts and booted home a 30-yard kick to add to the Salem offense. The Salem defense played a solid game not allowing a Pinkerton score until the fourth quarter. The Blue Devils forced the Astros to punt on three occasions and Joe DiPalma picked off an interception. “Beating a potential playoff team like Pinkerton is a big win coming four weeks into the season,” Gati said. “Hopefully it won’t be our biggest win this season, but it is a good win.” Girls’ Soccer: Salem 3, Pinkerton 0

Hidden Jewel Award Winners for 2009 Recognizes Outstanding Women
The Greater Salem Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with Salem Co-operative Bank, is pleased to announce the 2009 Hidden Jewel Award winners. The Hidden Jewel Awards is a program developed to honor the area’s most valuable women, those women who are the heart and soul of their community, but often go unrecognized. The intent of these awards is to acknowledge and celebrate the accomplishments of these women who excel in their chosen field or vocation and define their role through their initiative, dedication, leadership, and involvement. The 2009 nominations were outstanding in quality, making the decision very difficult. The winners are: Mother of Pearl Award Winner – Jeannette Frahm This lifetime achievement award has been named for the gem that signifies Faith, Charity, and Integrity. These three integral components also describe this year’s winner Jeannette “Janet” Frahm. Janet’s charity is far reaching, and given without Jeannette Frahm hesitation.

In addition, Christie organized a freshman-sophomore semiformal dance, developed fundraisers in support of the Destination Senior Prom event to be held at Gillette Lee Alphen Stadium, and has served on numerous committees and projects.

Acting as the volunteer chaplain at Rockingham Park since 1975, Lee has worked to bring churches together with those in the racing community. In her 30 years serving this community, Lee has started a food pantry, a clothes and furniture closet, and raised funds to start a daycare center for the children of the horsemen and women. Her passion did not end there! Lee continued to help the families of those working at the racetrack, and even traveled to many of their hometowns in Mexico. While in Mexico, she instigated the drilling of a community well, as the town lacked a water source. Funds for livestock and irrigation systems were also raised. In addition to her service as a Chaplain, Lee is an active member of St. Joseph’s Parish, creator of the Growing In Faith TV show, and a member of the Salem Clergy Group. Sapphire Award Winner – Martha Breen Sapphire is the stone of Martha Breen loyalty. Symbolizing unending devotion this gem accurately represents the commitment that Martha has shown to the schools and the community. Martha has worked tirelessly making a safe and positive environment for the children of Salem. In addition to the dramatic impact she has had on the community through the Boys & Girls Club, Martha has served on the Salem Youth Committee, the Salemfest Committee, and the School Board.

She served as a board member for the NH Partners in Education and moved into the program director position where she cultivated partnerships between the public schools and their communities.

Funeral Advice by
Q. It’s been several months since my dad passed away and the pain of his loss continues to affect our entire family. When do people start to feel better and what can we do to start healing sooner? A. First and foremost I’d like to express my sympathy for your loss. People grieve a loss in many different ways. I have assisted many families in the recovery process after they have experienced the loss of a loved one. Every journey in recovery is different. There are different lengths of time, different circumstances and different paths to travel. I have found several helpful strategies that aid in the process of becoming whole once again after someone you have cared about has died. First would be that of involving a spiritual leader to assist in recovery. For those folks who belong to a faith community, that community and its clergy person can be an invaluable resource in moving through the grieving process. Many clergy are especially skilled in post funeral care. Their knowledge, expertise and caring should be sought out early in the process. Secondly, the there are many capable counseling agencies and service bureaus that provide support and guidance in this area. Most funeral care providers, social service agencies and clergy have access to these resources. Thirdly, taking care of yourself should be a main priority. It is very easy in the wake of a loss or depression to neglect proper nutrition, exercise and proper rest often while turning to artificial means of coping such as alcohol or prescriptions. It is vitally important to realize


Richard C. Dewhirst

that if you are letting yourself wear down, that will only exacerbate the grieving process. Forth, It is imperative to understand that when you are grieving, it is very easy to lose interest in being active and involved in life. Most folks initially tend to isolate which only compounds the grief and allows it to feed upon itself. While it is often difficult to want to keep moving, it is vitally important to realize that if you don’t fight forward, the isolation and feeling of despair and hopelessness will only continue to grow. Knowing this dynamic will not necessarily solve the problem but at least you will understand what is happening and why. Finally I would like to suggest that there are lots of great spiritual and devotional guides that help to put the whole life and death process into a perspective that folks can understand. I have personally found several dozen resources that I continually share with families that I counsel. While not all devotionals speak to every individual, over the years I have uncovered enough to at least start most people on the road to recovery and healing. I think in closing that it’s so important to realize that you don’t have to make this journey alone. I think the hardest thing for people to do is to be strong enough and willing enough to ask someone for help. Even if the entire family is hurting, there are people and resources out there to help you in moving forward. Those resources can be sought out with the help of your funeral care adviser. Remember, sorrow shared is sorrow divided in half.

Students Arrested at Freshmen Reception
by Andrea Ganley-Dannewitz Salem police made nine arrests at Salem High School Saturday evening, after a dozen students were determined to be intoxicated while attending the high school function. Staff members and two Salem police officers assigned to the event began to question students in attendance that appeared to be under the influence. Between the hours of 7 and 9 p.m. a dozen students were taken into custody. Of the 12 taken into custody, nine are facing charges: Justin Shepley, 18, of Windham, unlawful possession of alcohol; Kina Wilbur-Kabien, 18, of Windham, unlawful possession of alcohol and transporting of alcohol; six seventeen-yearold juveniles from Salem; and one seventeenyear-old juvenile from Windham. All are charged with unlawful possession of alcohol, with two of the juveniles from Salem also charged with transporting of alcohol. Salem Police Captain Shawn Patten said the officers also had three vehicles towed from the Salem High School parking lot. Those three vehicles contained alcohol inside of them. He also said all teens taken into custody were released to parents and will have to appear at Salem District Court at a later date.

The Area News Group Thumbs column should not be used to hurt or defame an individual or business. Town and school officials encourage readers to seek out assistance directly to resolve any problems or issues. The Area News editorial staff holds the right to refuse any comment deemed inappropriate. “Thumbs up for a wonderful Salem Fest look forward to next year.” “Thumbs up to ‘keeping an open mind’ Letter to the Editor (9/18/09). We need more open minds in Salem. Thank you for having one.” “Thumbs up. I want to thank the young man called Vinnie. He is on the conservation committee. He has done so much for this town of Salem . I have seen him in the water ways cleaning it and at the community gardens. Yet I never hear the chairman say thank you to him. By the way where are the rest of the committee members? I see a man mowing the lawns and an older woman working the gardens. So a big Thank You to them. “ “Thumbs down to customers who tip a waitress then sit in there section for hours talking. Their tip is no longer a good tip because the poor waitress never got to flip there table. At least tip for the time you sit in the table. This is the only way waitresses pay their bills.” “Thumbs down to Rep. Bob Elliot. Disagreeing with Jeanne Shaheen’s policies is fine, but to end a letter saying “But fellas, don’t be upset; after all, isn’t it a woman’s prerogative to change her mind?” is way over the line. This comment is outrageously sexist. Before you point the finger at the rude Congressman who accused the President of lying, perhaps you’d better take a good long look at yourself.” “Thumbs up to the idea of using the old Coca-Cola building to house the Salem Police Station.” “Thumbs down to the Salem High School students who were drunk at the Freshman reception. What type of example are you trying to show? All you demonstrated is that you have not matured enough to enter the real world. Your careless behavior put innocent people in danger and you should all be expelled from SHS and made to serve community service. ‘Thumbs down’ to the Superintendent and other adults there for not properly monitoring the outside parking areas for these deviant students, that is your job and your responsibility to make sure everyone is safe.” “Thumbs up to the town of Salem for completing the Pelham Road Bridge, it’s perfect!” “Thumbs down way down to Stephen Campbell for his recap of the Board of Selectman’s review of next year’s budget. First of all the budget has been cut repeatedly in your path regardless of the economy being good or bad. So we’ve come to the point where we can not longer afford to make cuts. Second of all to put Pat Hargreaves on a pedestal just because he is the only one who doesn’t seem to get that concept is ludicrous. His credibility is questionable especially since the recent stunt of challenging the Salem police dept. with his position. Have faith in the gang of 4 that Stephen referred to. Pat Hargreaves should have been removed from office.” “Thumbs down to Pat Hargreaves for expecting his fellow selectmen to back him up. If I remember it was not too long ago that he threw them under the bus, calling them bums.” “Thumbs down to officer anonymous for backing into me in a middle school parking lot while I was on foot.” “Thumbs down to Comcast for raising rates by $2 in November instead of January 2010. (when they will no doubt raise rates again) They say it’s to cover programming costs and business expenses. But with heavy advertising from the competition they are losing customers. It didn’t help that they no longer provide basic service to new customers and have removed MSNBC and National Geographic from their expanded basic service. They shoot themselves in the foot and ask us to foot the bill. I too will be moving on as so many others have.” “Thumbs up to the Salem public library.. Last week I brought my daughter there to find books for a school research project. The staff in the children’s room as well as upstairs in the adult section were extremely helpful. Not only did they walk us to the section we needed they also suggested books. Another ‘thumbs up’ for how well the building is maintained and kept up. I really found it a nice place to visit.” “Thumbs down to the person who didn’t want to give kudos to the school board for their efforts at kindergarten. Sounds like sour grapes to me. Just the fact that we have to wait for the state to mandate kindergarten says a lot. It says that ignorant people like yourself refuse to recognize that education should be given a high priority. School boards have to work tirelessly to get past this outdated mentality every day and for that alone they deserve credit.” “Thumbs up to Bill Sherry for being the Bill Brown Citizen of the Year, your deserve the award!

Boil the pasta until it is almost al dente. In a casserole dish, mix the pasta with the sauce, add the cheese and the herbs. Bake it for 15 minutes. Add the fresh mozzarella and bake it for another 10 minutes.

Police Searching for Man Who Assaulted Woman
by Andrea Ganley-Dannewitz Last Saturday, two vehicles pulled into the front parking area of Salem Police Department around 11:30 a.m. An officer at the station witnessed a male get out of one vehicle and a female get out of the other. When the officer stepped out of the building to speak with the subjects in the front lot, he saw the male subject grab the female and begin to assault her, slamming her into one of the vehicles. The man was ready to continue assaulting the female, so the officer physically restrained the suspect, Matthew Miranda who continued to fight with the officer. The suspect was taken into custody and is identified as Matthew Miranda, 21, of Methuen, MA. While officers spoke to the victim of the assault and an acquaintance who was with her, the acquaintance told the officer that Miranda had been following them in his vehicle prior to pulling into the police station parking lot. Miranda was taken into the booking area of the Salem Police Department and was formally charged with domestic assault and resisting arrest. He was released on $1,000 personal recognizance, pending arraignment at Salem District Court. He was ordered upon release to have no contact with the victim. However, once Miranda was released from police custody, he immediately called the victim and threatened to kill her. Police say they have now issued new warrants for Miranda’s arrest on charges of stalking and criminal threatening. Miranda had an opportunity to turn himself into Salem Police but failed to do so. Police in Salem are now actively attempting to locate Miranda and take him into custody.

submitted by Coach Scott Wright The Salem junior varsity is stepping out of the shadow of the varsity program and beginning an undefeated streak of their own. The current junior varsity program has had great successes with providing its continually dominating predecessors with strong, competitive athletes with the will to win and carry on the tradition. This time around, the student athletes don’t plan on waiting to reach the varsity level to keep the streak alive. Salem’s JV program has jumped to a quick start and is currently 9-0 with no intention to stop rolling. Salem’s strong competition at this level comes from the Londonderry Lancers with their great size and scrappy defense, but even with that, Salem only dropped one game to bounce back and take the match 2-1.

JV Volleyball Setting Up for Next Year
Salem starts five sophomores and two freshmen every game; Salem’s offense is directed by freshman Andrew Ruffen, who averages just below 10 assists a match. The first-year player also contributes one service ace per game. Salem’s sophomores do all the damage on offense with the attack power of running a tri-middle offense — something New Hampshire volleyball isn’t familiar with — giving the team an opportunity to put up bigger blocks and more points. Sophomores Jon Klecan, Ryan Foster, Drew O’Shaughnessy, and Joe Dube account for a total of 119 kills of the team’s 195 to date. Ryan Foster and Joe Dube aren’t only a threat at the net; they are just as dangerous at the serving line with 33 and 32 serving aces so far this year. Drew O’Shaughnessy leads his team in defense and offense at the net, totaling 37 kills and 15 blocks. Jon Klecan, captain, is an outside without boundaries, using all of his talent to be competitive in all aspects of the game with untold athleticism. The young sophomore

has even had his time fighting on the varsity floor. These four are heading straight for starting positions next year with the intention of pushing all the current juniors to fight for their spots on the team. Sophomore libero, Jon Buatti, leads the team’s defense with 25 digs, and freshman middle hitter, Eric Denning, continues to use his size as an advantage to take control in pressure situations. Eric has showed great leadership in stepping up against Londonderry, leading his team in both blocks and kills in a tight game three. Other first-year players that are soon to make their impression on the program include Steve Nugent and Peter Coufos, sophomore outside hitters; Zach Arnold, a freshman right side hitter; and Josh Boutin, freshman setter. The team as a whole has put up impressive stats: a 9-0 record with 24 wins and 3 losses with 121 assists, 35 blocks, 97 digs, 195 kills, and 156 serving aces.

Salem Saints Hockey
The Salem Saints Mites ran into a very good Newburyport team on Sunday and were dealt their first loss of the season – 4-2. Patrick Cohen and Mason Drouin scored the goals for the Saints. The Squirt 1 kids were 1-1 for the weekend, losing to Andover 5-0 and winning against Burlington 4-0. With a complete team effort, the Squirt 2s had a strong 5-1 win against Methuen with Shea Kingsley, Eric Defelice, Mason Healey, Thomas Defelice, and Patrick Hare getting the goals and assists by Jacob Heckman, Eric Defelice, and Thomas Defelice. Aleksei Lavrentyev and Brandon Paiva combined for the win in goal. The Peewee 1s won on Saturday against Medford, 2-1, and lost the next day against NH East 82. Danny Donovan scored the 2 goals vs. NH East with assists by Brad Brock and Chad Desautels. The PeeWee 2 team had a 1-1 weekend. The first game against Medford was an early morning shutout of 6-0 with Nick Sturgess getting the win. Goals were scored by Abigail Lagos (2), Joseph Goudey, Dustin Kingsley, Seth Rebecca Healey and Abigail Lagos from PeeWee 2 against Lexington/Bedford. McCarthy, and Curtis Culcasi with assists by Brian Stanford, Ryan Vallon, George Nicolopoulos, and Rebecca Healey. They finished up the weekend with a loss against Lexington/Bedford 7-0. The Bantam 1 team had a stellar game against Methuen, winning 11-2. Goals were scored by Matt Bauchman (3), Dustin Lubinger (3), Jake Barnacle, Shane Morin, Zach Sylvester, Dylan Yameen, and Jason Parker, and assists by Shane Morin, Zack Fuller (2), Matt Bauchman (2), Connor Donahue, Nick Yameen, and Jake Barnacle. The Bantam 2 kids had a 1-0-1 weekend with a 5-5 tie against Andover and a win against Lexington/Bedford on Sunday. The Bantam 3s had one game this weekend, losing to Andover 6-0. The Midget 2 team opened their season with a win on Thursday evening against the River Rats 1 team 2-1. The two goals were scored by Cam Brock with assists by Ryan Corbett and Matt Merchel. Nick Phair stood strong between the pipes and turned away several River Rat opportunities.

submitted by Dianne Wright The Salem High School varsity men’s soccer team split this week’s matches against two tough opponents. The team took their show on the road by playing a tough physical match against Nashua North. The match was exciting, if not at times painful. Tackles were fast and furious, but Builders, LLC the Salem team kept their poise throughout the game. The team showed its mental toughness and ability to focus under tough game conditions. Nashua scored first on a long ball played behind Salem’s defense. Salem fought back and Captain Brett Miller was able to serve a ball into senior Mike Abiaad, who headed the ball into the back of the Titan net to tie the score. Throughout the second half, the play continued to be strong and physical; both teams tested each other. Nashua North took the lead on a penalty kick at the 60-minute mark, but Salem never gave up.

Colleen Gill (81st overall, 22:18), Kerrin Foley (82nd overall, 22:19), and Amy DeNuzzio (95th overall, 22:42) also placed in the team’s top five to score for the Blue Devils. Amanda Buck and Emily Anyon ran hard in the race as Salem’s sixth and seventh runners. The boys’ team came in 16th place out of 30 competitive teams at the large school division race. Ben Dutton led Salem as he came in 44th place overall, clocking in with a time of 17:41. Dan Schmidt’s run of 17:57 was good enough for second on Salem and 59th overall.
