Lemonade Stand
to Raise Funds for Juvenile Diabetes
by Doug Robinson She has devoted her life to finding a cure. She walked, held fundraising events, participates actively with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), and she is only 12 years old. On Saturday, July 24, Jessica Tate of Hudson, who was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes, will be serving lemonade to all who visit her lemonade stand, which will be located at Wesley Tate’s Seal-Coating (Jette Farm), 117 Lowell Road, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Included with the lemonade will be face painting by Hudson artist Kristen Jensen and food provided by Pearl Street Pizza of Nashua. All donations will be given to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JRDF), whose mission is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. JDRF is also committed to developing new and better treatments that improve the lives of people with Type 1 diabetes in the near term and keep them healthy while they advance toward a cure, they claim. Throughout history, diabetes has affected writers, reporters, editors, business leaders, sports legends, some of our greatest science minds, entertainment and music icons, politicians, statesmen, artists, and those who work and live in every walk of life. continued to page 7- Lemonade Stand

12-Year-Old to Host

Begin to Receive the Benefit of a ‘DASH’ Unit

Ottarnic and Robinson Ponds

The DASH unit rests above an area of Ottarnic Pond where AB Aquatics mitigates the Milfoil and the Fanwort concerns by Doug Robinson Hooked to a breathing apparatus, Cornell student and high jumping athlete Lindsey Patterson, employee of AB Aquatics, had been under water for over three hours. Tethered by air, she has been spending her summer vacation cleaning up the Milfoil and Fanwort that have been growing in Ottarnic Pond and Robinson Pond for years. According to her dad and master diver, Bob Patterson of AB Aquatics, she had another six hours of diving to do before the day would be completed. “This is our first day in Hudson,” commented Bob, “and we will be spending nine days in total sucking up the Milfoil and the Fanwort which has been growing in Ottarnic Pond, and then we will be spending an additional three days in Robinson Pond.” Thanks to a grant from the New Hampshire Lakes Association, their 2010 NH Lakes Association Innovative Exotic Weed Control Program grant to Hudson has afforded Hudson the ability to purchase a diver-assisted suction harvesting unit (DASH) in the amount of $5,000. The DASH unit will be used in both Ottarnic and Robinson Ponds “for the management of variable Milfoil and Fanwort,” states the grant. Both cooperatives from Ottarnic Pond and Robinson Pond agreed to hire AB Aquatics from southern NH to attack the weed problem. AB Aquatics, Inc. is a professional diver services company based out of southern New Hampshire that specializes in the management and mitigation of invasive exotic weeds. They offer education, management, instruction, sales, and services of specialized equipment, including DASH units, GPS mapping technology, customsupplied air units for weed harvesting, and PADI scuba instruction, according to AB Aquatics, who employs a core group of five professionally trained divers. All divers have multiple advanced scuba diver certifications, CPR certification, and a minimum of two years of exotic weed diving and DASH unit operation. continued top page 12- DASH

Bob Guessferd Retires from Air Force
by Lynne Ober Hudson resident Robert (Bob) Guessferd is now a retired Air Force Lt. Colonel after 28 years of distinguished active duty service. Guessferd really began his career four years prior to entering active duty. He attended the Air Force Academy and from there went into the Air Force, which he loved. However, along the way, he had to balance family needs with his career. With a daughter facing several medical procedures that would occur over several years, Bob made the difficult decision to leave the Air Force and base himself and his family in the area so that his daughter would have consistent and quality medical care. He decided, however, to continue his career with the Air Force National Guard, which would allow him to continue serving his country and the service that he loved while providing the care for his family. It was a decision that just came to an end with his retirement after 28 years. With Senior Master Sergeant Mike Dubeau acting as Master of Ceremonies, friends and relatives gathered at the Hudson VFW first for the retirement ceremony, and then for an evening filled with food, fun, and laughter. Bob’s two daughters, Terin and Christiana, sang the National Anthem to open the retirement ceremonies. Dubeau said, “Today, we recognize true patriotism by honoring Lt. Col Robert Guessferd and his 28 years of loyal and dedicated service to the defense of our Nation.” He talked about the years that Bob spent on active duty, including his final years where he was the liaison officer between the Jr. ROTC programs in the state, as well as performing other official functions.

Colonel Kevin Brady, the presiding officer, presents Lt. Colonel Guessferd with his retirement certificate “Formal, ceremonial recognition upon military retirement is a long-standing tradition that honors a service member’s sacrifices, loyalty, and patriotism. Patriotism is a feeling of love, devotion, and sacrifice for one’s country. Personal patriotism is emotional and voluntary. Patriotism is not a short and frenzied outburst of emotion. It is the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime,” said Dubeau, before turning the podium over to the Senior Aerospace Science Instructor, Colonel Kevin Grady, who leads the Jr. ROTC program at Alvirne High School. continued to page 12- Guessferd Retires

Stephen Burton receives a Senate Proclomation from Senator Sharon Carson

Stephen and his parents listen as the Scout Master presents the Eagle Badge

by Doug Robinson Stephen Burton has always dreamed about earning the rank of Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America. Since joining Scouting as a Webelo only eight years ago as a part of Scout Troop 252 of St. Kathryn Church in Hudson, Burton has focused his energies, his time, and his talents to become one of the less than one percent of all those who enter the ranks of Scouting by becoming an Eagle Scout, which he has achieved. Eagle Scout is the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouting program of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). Those who attain this rank are called an Eagle Scout or Eagle. The title of Eagle Scout is held for life, thus giving rise to the phrase “Once an Eagle, always an Eagle.” Requirements include earning at least 21 merit badges and demonstrating Scout spirit, service, and leadership. This includes an extensive service project that the Scout plans, organizes, leads, and manages. Now a senior at Alvirne High School and member of the Key Club, Burton will continue with Scouting as an Assistant Scout Master. “I want to help kids grow up from Tenderfoot to First Class and then enjoy Scouting,” he stated. Burton fondly remembers the many Scouting outings in which he has participated, which include trips to Northfield, Mount Monadnock, and Norton, ME. Whitewater rafting, camping, and fellowship among other Scouts will always remain vivid memories to Burton. “When we joined Scouting as a family, it truly has been a family effort,” states his Eagle Court of Honor Brochure. “Stephen’s Memere and Pepere were very supportive of him. They were family faces at pancake breakfasts and Courts of Honors. Fellow Scouts Matt Emanuelson, Mike Buxton, and Tim Hebert were older Scouts to whom Stephen has looked up to. We are grateful to all,” writes his program. Since May 2004, Burton has earned the Merit Badges of art, leatherwork, citizenship in the nation, emergency preparedness, first aid, fishing, swimming, rifle shooting, camping, citizenship in the community, golf, small boat sailing, and personal management. Burton’s leadership history included Assistant Patrol Leader, Patrol Leader, Quartermaster, Troop Guide, and Junior Assistant Scoutmaster. To achieve his Eagle community service project, Burton teamed up with St. Vincent de Paul of Hudson. “I first thought of painting the St. Vincent de Paul Society Food Pantry at St. John the Evangelist Church Parish Center on Library Street when I participated in the Scouting for Food drive, which we held last year. It was then that I realized that this wonderful organization needed some help,” stated soon-to-be Eagle Scout Burton. As outlined in Burton’s Eagle Scout application, he would paint all walls, the ceiling, the exposed joists, and the floor. Before authority by the BSA was given, Burton underwent seven intensive reviews of his project by members of the BSA Review Board. Going before the Board of Review is the last major step for an Eagle Scout candidate. All his efforts peak at the Eagle board of review. It’s akin to a job interview, but it allows the panel to determine whether the candidate is worthy of the recognition. The interview focuses on the Eagle candidate’s attitude and his acceptance of Scouting’s ideals, according to the BSA. Burton, a Life Scout at the time, was required to plan, develop, and give leadership to others in a service project helpful to his religious institution, school, or community. His project needed the support and approval of the organization benefiting from the effort, his unit leader, varsity Scout coach, crew advisor, unit committee, and the Council. “I remember how dark and dingy this pantry was when I first came here. I want to brighten up the pantry and make it really nice,” said Burton. In order to paint the room, Burton had to first empty the room of all the food, shelving, boxes, and materials currently being used to provide food for the many needy families in Hudson. A major concern for Burton was to find a way for St. Vincent de Paul to be able to continue to provide over 2,500 meals to those in need while he was painting the room. Light fixtures were taped, electrical sockets were covered, and refrigerators, chairs, and a desk needed to be removed from the room before the painting could begin. Shelves were dismantled and supplies were ordered. To paint the room professionally and properly, Burton consulted with professional painter Walter Buynowski. With his help, Burton purchased 25 gallons of wall paint, five gallons of light gray floor paint, and masking tape, rollers, paint brushes, plastic trays, masks, markers, towels, and trash bags—all necessary supplies.

Burton estimated that his project would require 23 hours of labor and would last one week. Burton’s plan listed the additional help of four Scouts and his parents to assist him with the painting of St. Vincent’s. During the first day of work, over a dozen friends, volunteers, and family members participated with the painting of the pantry. Burton states that he is “very appreciative for the generosity of True Value of Hudson and the Kiwanis Club of Hudson, as they helped me with the expenses of this project,” stated Burton. With his newly earned Eagle Scout ranking, Burton has joined those elite Eagle Scouts who have walked the same path before him: Sam Walton of Wal-Mart, Astronaut Neil Armstrong (the first man to set foot on the moon), President Gerald Ford, and film producer Stephen Spielberg.

Why am I supporting Karen Testerman to be our next governor? Karen’s beliefs are so much like my own that I can’t not try to help her campaign. Karen’s campaign of conservative values includes, but is not limited to, refusing unfunded federal mandates or even with federal dollars that will lead to a future fiscal crisis in New Hampshire. The federal government has violated its constitutional role and taken away many of the rights reserved to the states, making New Hampshire dependent at many levels. Karen Testerman will support reintroduction of firearms safety training for young adults, and she will ask the General Court to reintroduce a Parental Notification Bill and open hearings on the end-oflife laws that threaten our elderly. I agree with Karen Testerman that gambling should not be a source of revenue for the state and should only be considered on whether it benefits or detracts from our New Hampshire, quality way of life. I have not done a lengthy comparison of how my viewpoints are a mirror image of Karen’s Testerman’s, as her Website, www.karentesterman. net, will provide a wealth of insights and information to make an informed decision at the polls on Election Day for the primary and general elections. The time has arrived for a new way of looking at how the State of New Hampshire can recapture its heritage and reputation, and that new way is with voting for Karen Testerman. There’s only one way for the voters to understand what the new way meant to the State of New Hampshire, and that’s by looking back one year after she’s been elected at what a new way looks like. I’ve known Karen Testerman since the late 1990s and although we became disconnected as we both moved around the same time and lost track of each other, I knew that when I became aware of her campaign, I had to help her get elected. Jerry Gutekunst - Hudson food baskets, as well as Christmas gifts for over 90 children this past year. Numerous local families continue to use the food pantry all year long and throughout the summer months. As the local economy continues to struggle, many family budgets suffer and basic back-toschool supplies can be difficult or impossible to purchase. In an effort to help these families with school-age children, school supplies are being collected and will be distributed through the food pantry. Back-to-school sales in stores have already begun, so please consider picking up a few extra supplies and donating them to help local children. Items can be dropped off at the church office/food pantry at 259 Charles Bancroft Highway across from the fire station, or at a collection box located in Town Hall at 2 Liberty Way. Efforts are also being coordinated with the help of St. Francis, and donations can be dropped off there as well. Cash donations can also be made with checks payable to Litchfield Presbyterian Church, and please write “school supplies” on the memo line so they can be directed appropriately. Some suggested items for elementary-school students: backpacks, lunch boxes, crayons, markers, pencils, erasers, pencil boxes, glue sticks, pocket folders, non-spiral notebooks, hand sanitizer, and healthy snacks such as packaged crackers, fruit cups, granola bars, etc. Suggestions for middle- and high-school students, in addition to the items listed above, include: highlighters, pens, spiral notebooks – both single- and multiple-subject, three-ring binders, filler paper, graph paper, notebook dividers, calculators, and three-hole punches. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the church office at 424-6057 or Cindy at 889-2148. Cindy Couture - Litchfield

Attorneys, Millionaires, and Me
Are you fed up with the people who represent us in Washington? Are you fed up with the people who follow the party line and vote away our freedoms? Are you wondering who these people are that are leading this country down the wrong path? Do attorneys and millionaires come to mind? As of November 2009, there were 157 attorneys (36 percent) in the House and 54 in the Senate; there were 237 millionaires (54 percent) in the House and 40 in the Senate. Thomas Jefferson said, “If the present Congress errs in too much talking, how can it be otherwise in a body to which the people send one hundred and fifty lawyers, whose trade it is to question everything, yield nothing, and talk by the hour?“ Are we going to be part of the solution or part of the problem? We complain all the time that: the people in Washington don’t listen to us, do what they want and forget about us, the ones who sent them there; that there’s never anyone in Washington that “really represents us,” that we always get the raw end of the deal! Ever wonder how they got there? We vote for them time and time again! Do we want more attorneys or millionaires in Washington leading us down the road to who knows where? I say no! Now is the time to stand up for ourselves, shake off the status quo, and bring common sense back to our country! There is one candidate who is neither an attorney nor a millionaire, and who considers you family, friend, and neighbor. One who knows the pain of losing a job, paying the bills, and just making ends meet. That one candidate is me, Dennis Lamare. I don’t have all the answers to the problems facing this world, but I do have life experiences and common sense to take on the issues. I never take for granted the things that matter most to us: freedom, life, and the American Dream! I will always look to the Constitution to make my decisions to do what is right for America, good for New Hampshire, and keep the trust that you put in me as your Senator. This election, let’s finally do the right thing for ourselves and for New Hampshire! The right thing is when you cast your vote, vote as if your future depends on it ... because it does! Vote “For Me,” not me, Dennis, per se, but say to yourself, “this vote is for me!” Then, your vote for me, Dennis, will be the solution in Washington against the attorneys and millionaires that are the problem. Dennis Lamare, Candidate for U.S. Senate - Lee

Support for Jennifer Horn for Congress
The people of New Hampshire’s 2nd district have a critical choice to make shortly. They can support Charlie Bass, if they want a Congressman who, based on his 12-year record in the House, sponsored a Cap & Trade bill; opposed oil and gas exploration in Alaska and the Gulf; opposed lobbyist transparency; opposed the right to appeal property seizure due to zoning laws; openly supports abortion; broke his term-limits promise; consistently supported deficit spending; promoted Global-Warming climate-change constraints for America (Kyoto Protocol); and supported a bill allowing minors to be transported across State lines for abortions without parental consent. Or they could choose a candidate who will honor the Constitution (to the letter), including States’ rights; fight for a balanced Federal Budget amendment; repeal National Healthcare; outlaw earmarks; enact sensible term-limits; promote lobbyist transparency; require sunset provisions for all spending; shrink the size of the bloated Federal Government (and reduce federal tax rates); secure our nation’s borders; fight illegal immigration, and promote a balanced energy independence plan. Unequivocally, that candidate is Jennifer Horn. As we speak, across our nation, dozens of new, fresh, passionate individuals are stepping up and running for Congress—because they have seen enough arrogance, corruption, and entitlement from career politicians, who are more concerned about party politics and the next election than the next generation. This new class of “citizen legislators,” along with Jennifer, can lead the change we truly need in Washington, re-routing our United States back to the path envisioned by the Founders.

In My Opinion...
by Representative Jordan Ulery, District 27, Hillsborough County First, the so-called “austerity” budget failed and then had to be fixed in a oneday Special Session. What was discussed in that spectacle were increased taxes and fees previously rejected, and the breaking of promises made to grow business in New Hampshire. This socalled emergency fix was the direct result of a failure to lead and manage by the administration. Instead of making hard, but necessary decisions, the majority party opted for their tried-and-failed song of “increase a tax on (this term, quite literally) everything.” As the TV commercial goes, “but wait, there is more.” In their rush to tax and spend your dollars, the Administration of New Hampshire took an unprecedented

by Jordan Ulery

I do not subscribe to chew or snuff, nor do I even like cigarettes, I do know right from wrong. It was and is wrong for the Democrat-controlled legislature to pass a bill that immediately imposes as tax, upon signature of the governor. It is wrong for the Governor to sign such a bill. Not only was it wrong on the basis of the edict from St. Thomas, it is wrong from a sense of decency and fair play. It is wrong from an administrative point of view as well. How can a tax collector be fair and even handed when the Governor forces the tax collector to immediately collect a tax businesses do not even know exists, and have not been notified that they would be responsible for collecting from an unsuspecting public? Our Democrat-led legislature and the Governor’s office did a disservice to the people of New Hampshire when they rammed through an incomplete, un-vetted, and unreasonable tax law to fix yet another unreasonable and unsustainable budget bill. The people of New Hampshire deserve better than this type of mismanagement.

Shameless Mismanagement Abounds
step of immediately applying certain taxes. That is correct, immediately, with no notice to the Department of Revenue, no notice to retailers, no notice to wholesalers – just tomorrow, start paying a tax – and by the way, this tax is hidden in a bill thick enough to keep a home warm all winter if burned. In Ways and Means, a so-called equity tax on non-smoke tobacco was proposed and, over the objections of many, passed. That tax was to take place on July 1, meaning that those who collect the tax would have had a least a month to re-mark their product and re-program their checkout scanners; in short, there would have been notice, which is only right. A long time ago, St. Thomas Aquinas, Patron Saint of Law Makers, stated that a law that is not published cannot be enforced. That is fair, equitable, and the reasonable process that should be expected of your legislators. This administration, with a seemingly lack of sense of fairness or of the rule of law, implemented, overnight, a tax in Section 45 of Special Session House Bill 1 (the fix-a-broken-budget bill).

Bomb Squad Called In for Suspicious Device
submitted by Hudson Police Department On July 18, at approximately 9:30 p.m., Hudson police responded to Chase Street near School Street for a suspicious container in the road. It was reported as a possible pipe bomb. Hudson police officers responded to evaluate the threat potential. It was determined that the PVC-type container may have been an explosive device. A portion of Chase Street was shut down. Three nearby houses were evacuated voluntarily. The Hudson Police Department contacted the Nashua Police Department and requested the assistance of the Nashua Police Bomb Squad. The Nashua Bomb Squad responded to the scene and used a robot to render the container safe. It was later determined the item was apparently a container usually attached to trailers to keep vehicle paperwork dry. The road was cleared and reopened.

Bomb technicians prepare the robot to investigate the potential bomb

Asian Longhorned Beetle Discovery Adds Urgency for Early Detection, Prevention
submitted by Gail McWilliam Jellie, Director, Division of Agricultural Development The recent discovery of Asian longhorned beetle (ALB), an exotic pest native to China and Korea, on six trees in Boston, MA, adds to the urgency of efforts to prevent the spread of ALB, and to ensure early detection of any possible infestations in New Hampshire. ALB attacks a wide variety of hardwoods, including, but not limited to maple, birch, poplar, elm, and horse chestnut, and is a threat to forest resources and community trees. Infestations in the U.S. have occurred in New York, Illinois, and New Jersey, and more recently in the Worcester and Boston areas of Massachusetts. The area affected in and around Worcester encompasses 74 square miles, and has already required the removal of over 24,000 infested trees. ALB has not been found in New Hampshire. Public awareness is crucial for helping to increase the likelihood of early detection, and for preventing the spread or transport of ALB. All major ALB infestations have been found by members of the public. Unfortunately, in most cases, the beetles have become well established before being detected. The beetles are easiest to see when they are most active in July and August. This is one reason why Governor John Lynch is declaring August as New Hampshire ALB Awareness Month. New Hampshire residents are being asked to look for the beetles in their trees and even in their swimming pools this July and August. The Department of Agriculture, Markets and Food (DAMF), University of New Hampshire (UNH) Cooperative Extension, and Department of Resource and Economic Development (DRED) Division of Forests and Lands are cooperating with the USDA Forest Service and Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) in the effort to prevent the spread of this pest, and detect any ALB infestation early so that it can be contained and controlled. Asian Longhorn Beetles do not fly long distances, probably less than a mile at a time. For this reason, Brad Simpkins, director of the New Hampshire Division of Forests and Lands, and State Forester, says, “We can keep these infestations local only if we don’t transport the wood out of the infested Extension Service, and the NH areas.” It is important for Plant Growers Association. people to obtain firewood for Last season, trees were summer camping and for winter planted in city parks, near heating locally. town offices, on private State Entomologist Tom school grounds, urban forestry Durkis, who is also director centers, and in private and of DAMF Division of Plant state university experimental Industry, has introduced the nurseries.

Changes in Eligibility for NH Veterans Home Opens Admission to More Veterans
submitted by Jackie Bonafide A new bill, which will take effect in August, was recently passed by the New Hampshire state legislature and will greatly expand eligibility for the New Hampshire Veterans Home. Under the new law, all veterans who have been have been honorably discharged, including Reserve and NH Air and Army National Guard members, will be eligible to apply. In the past, eligibility for admission to the New Hampshire Veterans Home required that a veteran serve a minimum of 90 days in the military on active duty during a “time of war.” The State-Federal Relations and Veterans Affairs Committee felt it “was time to honor and recognize the above service members in our state and allow them access to the same services to which others who have served our country are currently entitled.” Additional admission criteria include the following: • The applicant must have been a resident of the State of New Hampshire for one (1) year preceding his or her application, or can prove New Hampshire as home of record upon discharge. • The applicant’s condition(s) must be within the Home’s resources and ability to treat, and the applicant may not present potential harm to self or other residents. • Financial Certification: The applicant must meet income guidelines. Information is available by contacting the Admissions Coordinators, Ellen Douville and Shirley Ray, at 527-4400. NHVH Commandant Barry Conway said, “The New Hampshire Veterans Home is very pleased with this change in the law. We can now encourage applications from many other veterans and look forward to serving them in the future.” Established in Tilton in 1890 as the Soldier’s Home for Civil War Veterans, the New Hampshire Veterans Home was one of just four New Hampshire nursing homes to win the first Quality of Life Award from the New Hampshire Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) in 2007. NHVH was recognized again in 2009 by DHHS for its continuing commitment to nursing home culture change and quality of life. The NHVH campus is home to 200 men and women who have served their country and fellow New Hampshire citizens. The mission of NHVH is to provide high-quality, professional long-term care services to the Granite State’s elderly and disabled veterans. Now celebrating its 120th anniversary, NHVH is the only long-term care facility in the Granite State that is dedicated exclusively to veterans.

Ferry Street Reconstruction Begins
by Doug Robinson The announcement written in a yellow block and submitted by Kevin Burn, Hudson Road Agent, that was published in the July 16 edition of the Hudson~Litchfield News simply stated: “Extensive reconstruction of Ferry Street will begin next Tuesday, July 20. The work will include removal of the existing pavement and repaving. The affected areas will be from the bridges to Ridge Avenue. The work will run from 4 a.m. until 3 p.m. for four consecutive days. Weather permitting; the work will be completed by Friday afternoon. Major traffic delays and detours are to be expected, and motorists are asked to seek alternative routes.” The affected roadway will expand from the Twin Bridges separating Hudson from Nashua, and continue approximately one mile to Dairy Queen. Road signs that state “Uneven pavement,” “Caution,” “Raised Man Hole Covers,” and “Bump” line the affected roadway. While the repaving efforts have been scheduled for the overnight hours, traffic jams and traffic back-ups have been occurring on Routes 102 and 111. According to the Highway Department, “traffic was very good,

I am an active and playful girl who loves to go for walks, but also I am nice to cuddle with at the end of the day. I don’t mind being in a crate or riding in a car and I don’t have any accidents. I do well with children and other dogs because I like everyone. I am just a fun-loving, goofy girl who is patiently waiting for my new home. Like all of the pets here at the Humane Society

My name is Baby Girl, but I am no baby! I am a sweet and independent 12 year-old black cat. I love to get attention, and will come up and sit next to you while you pet me. I would love to live in a quiet home where I can get some rest and relaxation. I would make the perfect companion for someone who is just looking for some nice company. Since I am a senior, someone over the age of 60 could adopt me for very little out of pocket expense through the Pets for the Elderly Foundation. Please come to the Humane Society to meet me and my friends and learn more about this program to help place senior animals with senior citizens.

Route 111 Paving Hits ‘Bump’ in the Road
by Doug Robinson The traffic signals at the corners of Derry Road, Ferry Street, and Chase Street were put offline as a result of the paving of Route 111. Hudson Highway workers worked for several hours directing traffic as they awaited maintenance personnel to correct the electrical concerns with the switch box controlling the lights at this busy corner. Unknown and unseen to the motorists, the traffic signals are controlled by “electrical pads” in the roadway. As vehicles approach and cross the pads, electronic signals are sent to the various traffic lights, and the control box, which is located on Library Park, electronically activates the lights to shine green, red, and yellow. The same control box also activates the various arrow lights. Hudson Highway workers, who had already been working in excess of 16 hours for the day as a result of the repaving efforts going on, controlled the traffic entering and exiting Hudson over the twin bridges. They directed the traffic in excess of three and a half hours until approximately 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday night, providing for a smooth flow of traffic during one of the highest traffic times for Hudson at that intersection. In speaking with Police Chief Jason Lavoie, he stated that the highway workers are “trained to direct traffic” and that the police contract does not require a policeman to direct the traffic when the lights are out. A Hudson resident, who asked to remain anonymous, stated that maybe the “highway guys” should be there all the time, as “traffic has never flowed better through the intersection.” Hudson Highway employees work in teams to keep the traffic flowing across the Twin Bridges while they wait for service repairmen to arrive to fix the traffic control box

We are fortunate enough to have her sister at our school, Kiddie Academy, and have been amazed at the strength of her family and friends, and felt strongly about organizing a Benefit Ball to help this family in some way. The ball will be held on Sunday, August 1, at Searles Castle in Windham from 4-8 p.m. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at Kiddie Academy. The cost is $50/adult and $30/child. Chris Renn with Get Down Tonight Entertainment will provide DJ services. And there will be a special guest performance by Christian Wisecarver, who will be performing his song “Granite State of Mind.” All services, raffle prizes, and food have been donated by local businesses, and 100 percent of the proceeds from the sales of the ball tickets, raffle prizes, and silent auction will go directly to the Bella Tucker Fund. Raffle prize tickets can be purchased at Kiddie Academy, located at 156 Haverhill Road in Windham (882-5434). Winners do not need to be present at the ball to win. Everyone is welcome to stop by the center to purchase ball tickets and/or raffle prize tickets. More information about Bella can be found on her Website at www.bellatucker.org.

Bring back the summer memories and share them with your kids
Remember the summer days when you held a camping adventure under the stars in your own backyard, played board games with your parents or enjoyed an ice cream bar on a hot night? Do you remember learning to ride a bike through the neighborhood, waving to everyone sitting out on the front porch or working on their landscaping? Now that you have children of your own, summer is a great opportunity to repeat those memories and share them with your kids. Here are some ideas to bring back the memories: different body parts. And there’s easy clean-up—either wait for rain from Mother Nature or wash away the art with a hose for a clean canvas. $10,000 cash sweepstakes and review the full sweepstakes rules.

Cool off with an ice cream treat

Announce a family games tournament

Camp in the backyard

Remember making s’mores and chasing fireflies while camping in your backyard? Recruit help from your kids to set up the campsite and then spend the afternoon playing games, looking at the clouds and talking about bugs. After grilling out and roasting marshmallows over a fire pit, make the experience an educational one and teach your children about the planets and stars they’ll be sleeping under.

Decorate the sidewalk

Who hasn’t drawn oversized pictures on the sidewalks and driveway? Bring the kids outside for a day of fun and creativity—decorating the sidewalk with chalk drawings is a creative outlet for young artists. Trace the outlines of your kids’ bodies and teach them about

For 90 years, the familiar jingle of the Good Humor ice cream truck has brought smiles to many children in neighborhoods across America. And for adults, the ice cream man brings back special happy memories from their own childhoods. Memories of when they played hard all day and their moms let them visit the truck when dinner was finished. Parents can treat their families to classic nostalgic frozen treats all summer when they see (or hear) the ice cream truck coming down the street. It’s the perfect opportunity for parents to share with their kids stories from when they were young. This summer, that specially marked 4 oz. single-serve Strawberry Shortcake, Chocolate Eclair, Toasted Almond or Candy Center Crunch bar could win you $10,000—or one of 10,000 instant-win prizes. Check the stick to see if your ice cream bar is an “instant winner” or, for free instant-win game play, mail a 3×5 paper with your name, date of birth and full address to Good Humor. Log on to www.GoodHumor. com to redeem prizes, enter to win the

The games of your childhood can entertain your children for hours—especially if they haven’t played them before. Organize various competitions and races, such as an egg-carrying race, an obstacle course and a soccer ball dribbling contest. Fashion a challenge to see who can create the most delicious or craziest ice cream sundae. Bring all the fixings to the patio, and if there’s a mess, turn on the sprinkler for a fun way to clean up sticky hands and faces.

Create a backyard adventure

Bring back the homemade stage by having your children bring their favorite books to life. Don’t forget to share the stories you loved when you were a child—they might become favorites of your children. If there’s a sandbox, dress as pirates and have a buried treasure hunt. For mystery fans, set up a scavenger hunt with clues hidden around the house and yard. And for young playwrights, the backyard area provides the perfect stage to decorate, dress up and play out a scene.

S’mores is the right activity for more than just camping
Americans have a love affair with that classic campfire treat, S’mores. The good news—S’mores are no longer reserved just for campfire cooking. Did you know you can enjoy the chocolate, marshmallow and graham cracker goodness every day, inside and out? S’mores have been helping families create memories since the delicious campfire recipe was first published in the Girl Scouts handbook in 1927. According to recent research, 79 percent of consumers polled believe S’mores are as much fun to make as they are to eat. To help families make everyday S’mores moments this summer, Hershey’s and Kraft Foods offer the following S’mores “snacktivity” ideas. * S’mores time, any time – S’mores are the perfect summer campfire companion, and they offer a great “snacktivity” for after school, a ball game or family dinner. Incorporating S’mores into your regular summer activities allows you to create a memorable Monday or tasty Tuesday that the family will all enjoy. * Turn your backyard into a fun get-together – Get the family, friends or neighbors together for an impromptu backyard party at the fire pit. Tell them all they need to

Keep dogs healthy and happy this summer
When the warm summer months roll around, our dogs are just as eager as we are to get outside and enjoy the season. Whether he tells you by nudging his leash or staring at the door knob, one way or another, your pup knows it’s time for some fun in the sun. Before you head out, keep in mind that warm weather and sunny days are fun, but they can also mean you might need to take some extra precautions with your pet. The whole family can rest assured knowing their four-legged best friend is healthy, hydrated and happy by keeping the following tips in mind: 1. Schedule a checkup. Before you go anywhere that requires your dog to interact with other dogs, be sure to schedule a visit with your veterinarian. Get updates on shots for dangerous communicable diseases like bordetella. While you’re there, ask your veterinarian to evaluate your pet’s overall health. Your veterinarian’s office is also a great place to pick up two essential medications for the season—heartworm preventers and flea and tick control. 2. Run free. It’s easy for humans and canines alike to slide out of shape during the winter months, and now is the perfect time to work off what you’ve packed on. Taking your dog on regular walks will help, but even more fun for him is a trip to the dog park. Off-leash areas are a treasure for pets and their owners because dogs can run free and play to their heart’s content. They also get natural lessons in socialization. In fact, 44 percent of dog owners who take their dog to the dog park say their dog is more social with other people and dogs. Plus, it’s fun for you, too! Because pet owners value off-leash areas so much, dog parks across the country are expanding and improving now more than ever. To help support dog parks in local communities, The Nutro Company, a leading manufacturer of natural pet food products, is leading a movement called Room to Run this summer to enhance local dog parks in 30 communities around the country. Pet enthusiasts are invited to join the effort and lend a hand. Whether there’s a Room to Run event in your area or not, you can make a difference by going to your local dog park and making small changes to make it more enjoyable for everyone. To find out more about the initiative, go to www.thenutrocompany. com. 3. Be prepared. Dogs aren’t much for strolling around the mall. They love to be out running around and often don’t want to stop no matter how warm it is or tired they feel. Brush up on the signs and symptoms of health problems like dehydration and heat stroke, as well as basic first aid techniques. Keep a canine first aid kit in your car. At a minimum, it should include antiseptic spray, waterbased antibiotic ointment, bandaging (including sterile gauze and a binder like Vetrap or other elastic bandages), a thermometer, tweezers and single-use cold packs. You should also keep the number and address to your veterinarian and an emergency vet stored in your phone or on a slip of paper in your wallet. 4. Good on the inside. To keep your pet’s energy and health at optimal levels for increased summer activity, be sure you feed a high-quality dog food. It’s easier than ever to make sure your dog is getting complete, healthy nutrition without fillers. High quality foods can be found at your pet store and come in a variety of options that cater to your pet’s size or life stage. Whether you’re going on a weekend camping trip with your four-legged friend or just heading out for a romp at the dog park, a safe summer is the happiest kind of summer there is. - Courtesy of ARAcontent

Thumbs Up?
“Thumbs up to the Litchfield Blast U10 and U12 teams for not only winning the District 4 title but for sweeping the tournament. You girls rock and we are so proud of you! Good Luck at States. Go Blast!” “Thumbs up to all of the Litchfield Blast families for an awesome District weekend. We are so lucky to be surrounded by such amazing people.” “Thumbs down to the newly renovated Hannaford store in Hudson. Checking out has never been easy, but with the new system they have created a nightmare. The lines are ridiculous. Bring back the 14 items or less registers! My business is going to the south Hudson competitor.” “Thumbs down to Obama. So, does Obama really care about YOU and ME? Think about it. Take the moratorium on shutting down 33 oilrigs in the Gulf for ONE. This is the first accident in 50 years, a safety record of 99.98%, but yet, the loss of well over 30,000 jobs as a result of this moratorium which is MORE than the oil spill effect on the fishermen and related businesses, does not deter Obama from continuing to pursue this moratorium. ‘Why so?’ you ask. Could it be that Obama is looking ahead to the Nov. elections and seeking only to please his environmentalist base and to maintain the liberal vote? I think Obama cares more about getting his agenda through Congress than YOU and ME. Stay tuned.” “Thumbs up. Why not white pride they have black power, gay pride, etc. and now whites are the minority so its our turn now, we have rights too, and as far as all you people that are boasting about illegal aliens and how happy you are they are here well, please stop your college brain for a while and just think about all the soldiers that are fighting now as you read this and for those who have died. Now these illegal’s don’t have to ever worry about sacrifice for this country they are enjoying because they are invisible to our government, sure they clean toilets and water your lawns, but ask one to go fight for our country and they will speak no English all of a sudden, you people make me sick, why don’t you take your sparkling toilets and put them where the sun don’t shine, oh wait, all you illegal lovers think the sun shines everywhere on your prissy bodies. White power rules!!!” “Thumbs down: To the girl who works at the local fast food restaurant early in the morning. She is rude to co-workers rude to customers she swears and refuses to cook things when asked to. She needs to be FIRED ASAP. Have it your way? Well I don’t like waiting 10 min for my food a simple order. She has been there a while she should know how to do her job by now! I will not return until she is fired!” “Thumbs down, numerous thumbs-down to NH Grizzlies organization, the past couple years, I agree. They’re all about the money, not player development. Very arrogant coaches who’ll teach your kid for $2K a year, but additional help in hitting and pitching are EXTRA money, no exceptions. Is not part of registration fee. Nickel-and-dime you. Staff inadequate, at best. Philosophy is players learn, then on their own. No continued instructions in facility, though they advertise it. Coaches watch TV telling jokes during indoor practices instead of instructing. Choose another AAU team, if you’re wise. GRIZZLIES=JOKE. Bad for baseball! They should retire.” “Thumbs up. You don’t become the longest run AAU baseball organization in NH by allowing parents to manipulate circumstances for their own benefit and not for the good of the team. The NH Grizzlies have given more than I expected in the past two years and am glad there is such a top-notch program in our area. I am sure if you contact them they will give you the *other side* of the story.” “Thumbs down to those who use the Thumbs page to express their political messages. The HLN should restrict the Thumbs comments to 50 words or less. People who want to express political views should use the Letter to the Editor forum and sign their name.”

Thumbs Down?
son absolutely loves this little thing, and it cracks him up every time he pushes the button. His laughs make the rest of us laugh, thank you for taking the time to put your child’s items on the recycling table instead of in the trash. My 3-year-old son was very excited to find something so funny!” “Thumbs up to ‘Ability to Pay!’ What is it? It’s basically the way divorce lawyers create an ongoing revenue stream though grossly inequitable alimony settlements. Historically, this is where lawyers would take every dime of the husband to give to the woman in the form of court-mandated alimony setting up an endless series of appeals. Now with men facing structural unemployment, things are changing though not for the better. You see, lawyers don’t care who they take the money from, husband or wife, just as long as they get the money and Ladies, as part of your ongoing success, you are increasingly the one’s who have the ‘Ability to Pay’ and pay you will to your ex-husbands. So until there is meaningful Alimony Reform guys, don’t spend too much effort trying to find a job another job after that big layoff. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!” “Thumbs up to Chelsea Blanchard! Congratulations on graduating Alvirne High School we are very proud of you. Hold your head high and good luck going off to college for nursing and congratulations for 15 long years of dancing at Rosita Lee, Love, Mom.”

Football Training Has Begun It’s Hurricane Season in Softball
by Doug Robinson They stood less than a yard stick tall, but their faces said it all. In the sweltering heat, dozens of Hudson youth participated in the annual Football Training camp, which is held on the athletic fields of Alvirne High School. Hosted by the coaching staff of Alvirne High School, youth ages six to 13 lined up in straight lines on the grassy fields to learn the lessons of football from Hudson’s football professionals. Each year, the Football Youth Camp offers a three-day seminar for Hudson youth, where they are offered hands-on experiences and lessons as they are taught the fundamentals of football. Offensive drills, defensive drills, running back skills, running as a wide receiver, and performing the skills of a quarterback are taught to the students, according to Coach Dave Williams. They also learn the lessons of blocking, tackling, throwing, kicking, and passing the football. “Keep your hand back, and keep two fingers off the laces of the ball,” teaches Coach Williams. “Remember to point your foot into the direction which you are throwing the ball, and make sure you completely bring your throwing arm across your body, and have it end up at the pocket of

As parents watched from the sidelines, the soon-to-be Hudson Bronco Football athletes traveled from learning station to learning station as they practiced the various aspects of the game of football.

The 10U Hurricanes, a premier travel softball team based out of Play Ball in Salem, won five of the six tournaments that they entered, came in second place in the sixth tournament, and also came in 15th place in the Pony 10U National Softball Tournament in Wilmington, DE, the week of July 5; a very strong showing for a first-year team.

Comprised of girls from New Hampshire and Massachusetts, the 10U Hurricanes include Victoria Andrade (Salem), Hailey Cockroft, Lindsey DuMond, Jordan Hillyer (Windham), Kellie Kennedy (Hudson), Abigail Latham (Salem), Brianna Marino (Salem), Brooke Murphy (Salem), Madison Rastello (Salem), Nicole Teague (Hudson), Alyssa Upton (Windham), and Niamh Walker (Salem).

Guessferd Retires- continued from front page
Grady talked about the exemplary work that Bob Guessferd had done as Air Force liaison to the various Jr. ROTC groups in New Hampshire. “The AF JROTC program mission statement is ‘To develop citizens of character dedicated to serving their nation and community,’” he stated. He talked about motivating the members to achieve more and to believe that they could achieve. Grady said that although this work was over with the retirement, he and Lt. Col. Bob Guessferd would continue to work together to shape the youth of the future. “Bob has agreed to continue to mentor the Alvirne Jr. ROTC members, even though he has retired,” he said. Retirement ceremonies follow a set pattern with the reading of the retirement orders, making the retirement official, but they also bear the mark of the men and women who retire. So it was no surprise that Bob wanted to honor the other men and women who had served and who would serve the military in the future. Dubeau announced, “We ask that the following individuals please stand and remain standing until all of our special guests are introduced… • “Would all guests currently serving on active duty in the United States Armed Forces please stand and be recognized… • “Would all guests who have ever served in the United States Armed Forces please stand and be recognized… • “Would all guests who are or were spouses of a member of the United States Armed Forces please stand and be recognized… • “Finally, would all guests who are in the Delayed Enlistment Program, waiting to report to Basic Training, please stand and be recognized… “Ladies and Gentlemen, what you see before you now are the reasons why we enjoy our freedom in America today. Thank you for your unselfish service to our grateful Nation.” Then, it was time for the retirement orders to be read. Dubeau also read a letter from President Barack Obama that honored Bob Guessferd for his service to the nation. Grady then pinned the official Air Force Retirement lapel pin onto Bob’s uniform. It was also time to honor the women who have supported Come Meet Our Team Bob throughout his career. Using of Caring, Dedicated The retired LT Colonel poses with his family after the official ceremony a long-standing Professionals Guaranteed military tradition, let those of us who have chosen to wear the uniform of our country flowers were presented to the important women carry on where you have and so many before you have left off.” To Make You Smile! in Bob’s life.

Hudson~Litchfield News
by Len Lathrop The Hudson American Legion Junior team is made up of 18 student athletes from Hudson (13), Windham (2), Litchfield (2), and Pelham (1). They range in age from 14-17. Their home field has been the Alvirne High School varsity field. This season, they played 18 games against teams from across our state, posting a record of 15 wins and three losses with one final regular season game to be played. The team clinched first place in their District last week, and start the State Tournament on Friday, July 23, at Gill Stadium in Manchester at 7 p.m. Manager Matt Keller is very excited about this team. “This team is made up 18 great young men and ball players. They work as a team and never give up,” he says. “I can’t tell you how important that is. We’ve been down early in games and we’ve watched them pick each other up and win the games.” “I described them as great young men earlier and know this to be true because I’ve watched and listened to them compliment the other teams, even after a loss,” Keller enthuses. “They exhibit everything that is good in sports today without the huge salaries and egos.” “It’s been a pleasure being their coach, and look forward to working with them through the Regionals,” says Keller.
