Scout Breaks Ground on Eagle Project Honoring Soldiers
by Jay Hobson Eagle Scout candidate Danny Stacey wants to build a memorial to fallen soldiers from all branches of the military at Pine Grove Cemetery, and his project took another step closer to completion with a groundbreaking last week. The project, a golden ribbon of brick similar in shape to ribbons worn in support of our troops around a central flagpole and bordered by granite monuments honoring each branch of the military, will be located in the veterans’ section of the cemetery. “This is something I wanted to do to honor the soldiers from all branches of the service,” Stacey said. Stacey is in the midst of a fundraising campaign and is selling bricks with the donor’s name engraved on them. To help accomplish his fundraising goal, he held a dunk tank booth at the Independence Day festivities at Grant Field. Stacey estimates Selectman and Scouting supporter Pat Hargreaves, Eagle Scout Candidate Danny Stacey, and DPW Director Rick that it will take approximately Russell turn the first shovels of earth to begin Stacey’s project 35,000 bricks to complete the “ribbon” around the flagpole. Department of Public Works Director Rick Russell was on hand and is helping Stacey with his project. “This is a great thing. To honor all servicemen and women with this particular memorial is a great thing,” Russell said. Selectman Pat Hargreaves, who has been involved with Scouting for decades, also took part in the ground-breaking. “Danny has worked really hard on this [project] and it’s nice to see it taking shape,” Hargreaves said. To donate towards the project, Stacey can be reached at 893-9202. Steve Labrecque of Labrecque Landscaping Danny Stacey directs the heavy equipment into place donates his time and machinery
Governor Lynch Signs into Law
Bridge to Fallen Soldiers
Gov. Lynch signs into law the bill naming the Cross St. Bridge for Staff Sgt. Edmond L. Lo, Cpl. Nicholas Arvanitis, and Marine Lance Cpl. Robert Moscillo by Jay Hobson Governor John Lynch signed into law last Wednesday a bill that allows for the naming of the renovated Cross Street Bridge in honor of three fallen soldiers. “The loss of these three young men has hit the community very hard here in Salem,” Lynch said. Lynch noted the diversity of interests of the soldiers and also their camaraderie of purpose. “Nicholas was a talented musician and a friend to many, Robert was a sports fanatic who was a member of the Salem High School wrestling team and helped to uphold that school’s very proud tradition, and Edmond was a gifted student and a natural leader in ROTC. These were three distinct individuals, but they shared a common desire to serve our great country, to help others, and to protect our freedom with courage and bravery. Each was dedicated to his community, to his country, and to his family,” Lynch said. Corporal Nicholas L Arvanitis, 22, was killed October 6, 2006, while on a mission near Baghdad and Mosul, Iraq. Staff Sergeant Edmond Lo, 23, was killed June 13, 2009, while he was trying to neutralize a bomb in Samarra, Iraq. Marine Lance Corporal Robert Moscillo, 21, was killed, May 1, 2006, by an improvised explosive device in the Al Anbar province in Iraq after being in Iraq for 10 weeks. He had been in the Marines since 2005. Standing under an awning against the bright, afternoon sun, Lynch invited the Mascillo, Lo, and Arvanitis families to join him as he sat down to sign the bill into law. With the mothers of the three soldiers standing beside him, Lynch signed the bill into law using three pens and when he had finished, he gave each mother a pen. The bridge is state property and, therefore, a series of events had to take place before Wednesday’s signing. According to State Representative Ronald Belanger interviewed prior to the signing, permission had to be sought from the families to have their loved ones’ names so honored. “From there, a bill had to be introduced in Concord and a committee formed. From the committee, it went to the House to be voted on and once passed, it went to the Senate. When it was approved by the Senate, the bill went to the governor and he’ll sign it today,” Belanger said.

Crimeline’s Crime of the Month – Stolen Cars Cross State Lines
by Ron Penczak Salem police are seeking the public’s help to identify two individuals shown in the accompanying photos who are suspected of stealing Honda automobiles in Lawrence, MA, and Salem. The suspects are believed to be two Hispanic males in their teens or early 20s. On June 23, a Honda Accord was stolen in Lawrence and recovered at the Mall at Rockingham Park in Salem. It appears that they stole another Honda Accord from the Tiffany Road apartment complex in Salem to provide them with transportation back to Lawrence. This apartment complex is close to the Mall at Rockingham Park. The photos were taken at the Mall on June 23 around 9 p.m. Subsequently, another Red Honda Accord, although it was never reported stolen out of Lawrence, was found in the Kohl’s Department Store in Salem, with damage to the window and ignition. Salem police believe the three vehicles were stolen by the same two individuals. If you recognize either individual, report them to Crimeline of Southern NH. By doing so, you could be awarded up to $1,000. This is an easy way to earn legal cash by doing what’s right. If you have information, call Crimeline of Southern, NH at 893-6600 or 1-800-498-4040, or go online to www.crimelinesnh.com. Your call will be confidential and your tip will be made anonymously.

Summer Adult Reading Program Ends on a Juicy Note
by Robyn Hatch The Kelley Library recently completed their adult reading program for the summer, which ran from June 24 to August 18, and included watermelon recipe trading as part of its final activities. Approximately 515 people participated, with a total of 1,000 books read over the course of the program. For every two books read, one prize ticket was issued. Prizes ran the gamut from a rubber boat (Seahawk 2, won by Veronica Schaefer), many cups and mugs, to certificates to T-Bones and Chief Wok. As prizes were awarded, people traded their favorite recipes for treats that incorporate watermelon—a summertime favorite. Two of the notable watermelon recipes follow: Watermelon Cookies 1 package watermelon (or any other flavor) Kool-Aid powder (Don’t get the kind with sugar or substitute added) 1 2/3 cup white granulated sugar 1 1/4 cups softened butter (2 1/2 sticks) 2 large eggs, beaten (just whip them up in a glass with a fork) 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking soda 3 cups all-purpose flour (pack it down in the cup when you measure it) 1/2 cup white granulated sugar in a bowl

House Bill 1437: Consumer-Directed Services

HB 1437 represents an children in state. I am trying to find a better opportunity for the state to provide better “care and more cost-effective way to care for these services” and significantly reduce the cost of 534 children. This is what Healthcare Reform services provided to chronically ill or medically should be all about: A better system for less fragile children who are already receiving money. services. The State’s Interim Study on In-home support waivers are HB 1437 suggests performing Consumer Directed currently available to families a “Pilot Program.” If the “Pilot Services/Waiver of children with developmental Program” got 30 (or six percent) Cost $28,000 a year disabilities.

America Exits from Iraq
One of the most ignominious periods of America’s modern history came to a surprisingly quiet close last Thursday, August 19, when the remaining vestiges of our combat troops in Iraq crossed over to neighboring Kuwait to jump on their waiting planes for a happy departure home. That final American brigade exiting the war-torn nation turned out the be our Army’s 4th Stryker Combat team, and represented the concluding chapter of the extrication of our last 14,000 soldiers ensconced in the country, with August 31 remaining the official ending date of our military involvement. The tenuous democracy of this embattled nation, sinned against by its executed prior leader Saddam Hussein as well as the avarice of the George W. Bush administration, is now in the hands of an Iraqi security force numbering about 200,000 strong that has been trained for much of this bloody, seven-year occupation to begin to handle the reins of its own destiny. Nearly 50,000 American troops and advisors will remain there as a continuing transitional presence for humanitarian purposes, as well as assisting Iraqi units in attempting to maintain order in a country still awash in the Sunni/Shiite civil war inflamed by America’s ill-fated 2003 invasion. These non-combat
Pride and Gratitude for our Servicemen and Women
My heart was bursting with pride as I bid goodbye to a new troop of servicemen and women heading overseas. I recently became one of the “Pease Greeters” at Pease Tradeport in Portsmouth. We gathered together to meet young men and women dedicated to serving their country. Upon arrival from Texas to Pease, refreshments were served free of charge and cell phones were made available for calling home to their loved ones before departure to an unknown destination. More than 100 people assembled to show their gratitude and wish a safe journey to these young, upbeat men and women happy to serve their country. Also on that day, I became an official member of the “Fence Force.” We stood at the gate on the tarmac, waving goodbye as the plane flew away. Many thanks to my friend, Richard Forde. Dick is a member of the Windham American Legion whose members are active in their support of the program. A greeter himself, Dick was kind enough to invite me to participate. We can never repay these young men and women, as well as all service personnel, who served in the armed forces for our country. We live in the greatest country in the world. God bless America. Representative Mary F. Griffin, District 4 Windham
The Whole Truth
It’s not considered a lie, but a partial truth can bring us to the same venal result. Ed Brooks says that “Democrats controlled the House and Senate for the last two years in G.W. Bush’s presidency,” subtly implying that Democrats caused the problems in which we find ourselves. The whole truth: The President proposes and the Congress disposes. In addition, the President has a veto pen and the pocket veto for the express purpose of putting a halt to undesirable legislation. Partial truth: “We all were in favor of supporting the troops at war in Iraq and Afghanistan.” The
whole truth: We supported the troops but have long learned that we were misled into war in Iraq and the “just” cause was not to free repressed people, but to bring a measure of security to Americans deceived by the Bush administration. Partial truth: The cost of war has been about $2 trillion and our debt is now $14 trillion. The whole truth: President Reagan increased the debt from under $1 trillion to $5 and after Bush 41 and 43 concluded, a debt of $10 trillion was handed to Obama, without which Obama’s spending to block a great depression would be somewhat inconsequential. Partial truth: Brooks rants about billions to GM and banks, but does not mention that banks are back on their feet and are paying the government back with interest, as are the automotive bailouts that saved countless jobs. Leave out the good news and hope the bad news will stick seems to be the pattern. Let’s hope the banks start lending instead of seeking big profits by other questionable means. Most offensive in Brooks’ letter of August 20 is his reference to progressives as “powerhungry people who care very little for the hard-working middle class.” OPEN DAILY THRU LABOR DAY!

forces’ target date for departure is sometime near the close of next year. There should be no reason to have to again detail the three-pronged mountain of lies propagated by Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld/Powell to “sell” this dirty war to Congress, the American public, as well as the rest of the world (Iraqi WMDs, their burgeoning “nuclear enrichment program,” and Hussein’s 2001 “complicity” with Al-Qaeda in carrying out their 9/11 attacks). History will (and already has) recorded these warmongering fabrications as what they turned out to be, despite all the administration’s backpedaling about “removing an evil dictator” that were repeated continuously after those three actual driving forces became public knowledge. It was an oil war, pure and simple, enriching dozens of major American corporations and their subsidiaries, all of whom gleefully signed contracts before the first bombs were dropped, covering their future participation in rebuilding Iraq’s infrastructure, medical supervision, housing for American forces, food preparation, etc. With a total death/casualty toll numbering in the millions over the past seven years of pain, as well as thousands of displaced families, our military operation was, aside from the Vietnam War, easily the most indefensible of all America’s overseas “excursions,” despite the revisionist sugarcoating that continues from pundits and conservative commentators who were uninvolved and safely unaffected by the bloody toll this war took on so many innocents.

turnaround and recovery from the past seven years of occupation? Obviously not, if one simply peruses the destruction and loss of life that continues almost daily from recurrent suicide bomber attacks, mainly concentrated in public areas, shopping districts, family gatherings, etc. But the nation is in far better shape now than even a couple of years ago, with a retooled army and police force, most of Baghdad’s and Mosul’s railways and buildings finally restored, as well as its people able to finally rejoice over their freedom from the yoke of the murderous Hussein regime, the sole undeniable positive benefit for Iraq’s surviving population. One of President Barack Obama’s campaign pledges to all of us in his 2008 campaign was for our nation to engineer a “responsible” extrication from this Vietnam-resembling quagmire, and last week, he made good on his promise, which should make all decent Americans rejoice—especially parents of our men and women currently in our fighting forces. The United States’ long-term commitment to Iraq will continue. But our soldiers’ days of serving as cannon fodder for the Bechtels and Halliburtons of America are thankfully over. William F.

Spend $100 at a national chain and only about $14.00 recirculates.” I’m not sure about you, but that gave me pause, and really made me think twice before complaining about the price of local homegrown/ homemade products.

Anyone who has spent much time in a deer stand, watching wildlife or even viewing scenery, is aware that using binoculars can improve the odds of success, as well as add to your time outdoors. Properly using binoculars will open your eyes to animals and scenery you may have never noticed otherwise. A good pair of binoculars can be a lifetime purchase, and will provide you years of pleasure. Some of the best values exist in the mid-priced roof prism (straight-barrel design) binoculars. These are the binoculars that will do the best job for most individuals. Waterproofing should be a must in hunting binoculars, and most of the mid-priced roof prism binoculars offer this feature. Look for the most features you can afford, such as phase correction (coatings that improve brightness, color, and resolution), heavy rubber armor, rugged assembly, and nitrogen-filled. These were formerly available only in high-priced European optics. Now, you can purchase binoculars with these features in the $300-$500 range. Buying binoculars in the $50-$150 range will limit you to the Porro (shoulder design) prism binoculars. These binoculars will still give you nice, sharp optics, but you’ll have to accept the fact that the binocularsinchesprobably not be waterproof and will be 1.3 will by 1.5 columns relatively fragile.

Presidential Oath of Office
Every president of the United States of America, from George Washington to President Obama, has been required to pledge in an oath that they will protect and defend the Constitution and this country against all foreign and domestic enemies! It appears that President Obama may be slightly off-track with doing nothing about the threats to this country as he signs congressional bills proposed by his administration and backed by liberal, progressive Democrats in Washington, DC. For example: By not enforcing the immigration laws, Obama puts Americans at great risk, with illegals having auto accidents, committing crime, taking American jobs, and getting welfare, which is a constant financial drain on our country, and forcing an allliberal, Democratic healthcare bill down the throats of the majority of Americans, without revealing the honest, true costs of $1.3 trillion or even considering modification that may have made this better for all Americans. Apparently, our local Massachusetts-New Hampshire Congressmen never read the bill, or they would not have voted for passage. There is danger of having to borrow money from foreign governments like communist China! They can dictate what our import and export trade will be, and even our protection of free Taiwan. The extreme regulations of the Financial Reform Bill have many loopholes that will be super expensive to the American people—same goes for the new allowed liberal banking fees, and now, the lack of protecting housing loans in Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac. The organizations that Democrats allowed to cause the biggest housing failure in foreclosure history may be free to do it again! Medicaid and Medicare—highest fraud in history! Obama said, “That the taxpayers lost 50 billion dollars in 2009.” Think if we could start to recover these losses. These programs are not protecting the American people of this country, causing great hardship. We see nothing from this president but spending trillions of dollars. Apparently, Obama feels the big government can spend itself out of recession. As the song says, Americans are “15 tons and deeper in debt.” Unfortunately, the government has to borrow more money from foreign lenders. This repeated big spending cycle could cause the downfall of our free will and thinking values, as well as the rushing in of compliance taxation in 2011 to pay for socialist programs like in the countries of Europe. We need a big change in direction—”in something we can really believe in!” Free enterprise and conservative spending are needed to keep our freedom as a nation. Ed Brooks - Salem

David L. Lanzoni Golf Tournament a Success
Jimmy Fund Golf extends a sincere thank-you to the organizers and sponsors of the David L. Lanzoni Memorial Golf Tournament held on August 2, 2010, at Campbell’s Scottish Highlands in Salem, NH. Special recognition and appreciation goes to David Lanzoni of Ellington, CT, who organized the fourth annual event. The dedicated sponsors, participants, and volunteers helped raise critical funds in memory of David L. Lanzoni to support lifesaving cancer research and care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. In 2009, this tournament raised over $18,200 to support the groundbreaking work of Dana-Farber’s doctors and researchers. 2010 marks the 28th year of Jimmy Fund Golf, one of the country’s largest golf programs for charity. From traditional golf tournaments and country club member events to mini-golf tournaments and all-day golf marathons, volunteers create golf fundraisers that combine their love of the sport with their desire to support the fight against cancer. Each event is an incredibly rewarding and fun way to support a great cause! The David L. Lanzoni Memorial Golf Tournament was one of the many golf tournaments that will be held in 2010 to raise funds for the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber. American Airlines, Callaway Golf, Dunkin’ Donuts, Forty Seven Brand, the International Golf Club, and GateHouse Media New England are the presenting

Garcia Seeks Re-Election
From Washington to Concord, it seems an ever-growing government has decided that it can make better decisions than we the citizens can—that it knows better than we do how to manage our lives and finances, and how to run our businesses. The same problems are evident in our federal and state government—new taxes and new controls over our healthcare, our manufacturing companies, our banks, and our car companies. To keep New Hampshire Marilinda Garcia unique and attractive, we have to preserve the economic advantages that our state has—especially our no sales tax or income tax status. We have to keep power and choice in the hands of its citizens and we have to keep our government accountable to us—We the People. I have served two terms as a State Representative for Salem and Windham, and I am running for re-election because I know that the ideals of liberty are worth fighting for. In the past two years, the Democrat majority in Concord has made every effort to raise gas taxes, capital gains taxes, lottery taxes, death taxes, cigarette taxes, and to increase fees. With your help, I would like to return to the State House to try to stop this continued assault on your wallets and the attempts to ruin our State’s low-tax status. The government is always asking us to tighten our belts in harsh economic climates, to be fiscally responsible, and to be efficient with our resources. We ask the same of the government. We need the freedom to use our hard-earned money as we see fit, at our own discretion according to the needs of our families, and with as much charity and generosity as Americans have always demonstrated to those less fortunate. We need the freedom to be stewards of our own finances, in our own best interest, and in the best interest of our state and country. Our leaders must be held accountable for protecting our freedoms and ensuring that our children and grandchildren enjoy liberty and opportunity. I have been honored to be one of your Representatives in the NH State legislature, and ask for your vote. – Marilinda Garcia, State Representative for Salem/Windham, District 4.
Last Chance to See Canobie Lake Park’s Tribute to Michael Show
submitted by Canobie Lake Park Canobie Lake Park is open every day and evening through Labor Day with its full complement of rides, games, and live entertainment. The first week of September is also the last chance to catch the extremely popular, live Tribute to Michael show appearing at Canobie’s Dancehall Theater for its final run of the year from September 1-6. The fun doesn’t stop at Labor Day, though. Canobie’s new Oktoberfest celebration will be presented for seven weekends beginning September 18. The event will feature a beer garden with seasonal brews under the tents in the middle of the Park, traditional German fare, music, live entertainment, and other festivities. Then, Canobie Lake Park SCREEEMFEST joins the party, haunting the Park every weekend during the entire month of October. There’s a lot to “screeem” about with creepy haunted houses, Halloween games, zombies and monsters lurking about, and even more live entertainment that will include an all-new, live tribute show featuring Frank Moore as Prince. And to top it all off, you can also enjoy several Canobie rides and games that will be open throughout both fall events, weather permitting.

Salem Church Expelled from Methuen School
by Jay Hobson Granite United Church, which is located on Sandill Road, has been using the Tenney School in Methuen, MA, until last week, when the church was told to leave by August 31. The former Granite State Baptist Church, under the leadership of senior pastor Anthony Milas, was using the 1,250-seat auditorium to hold its Sunday morning worship services until the Methuen School Committee, who received $35,000 in rent, asked the church to leave. The church will now hold its services at the Sanhill Road site, which is being renovated to accommodate the worshippers. School Committee member Gary Marcoux told committee members that there were “complaints from neighbors” when the church held what Milas described as an outdoor church picnic that included food, refreshments, and music. Teens Marcel “The Man” Romero; Tracy McTiernn, on ladder; Kenisha McFadden, sitting on countertop; “There are basically three reasons why they and Hillary Fetter, standing, prepare the teen room asked us to leave. 1.) That there was no lease agreement, 2.) There was no insurance rider, and media room. No one said, ‘has anyone checked to see if there’s a 3.) That we caused damage to the media room,” Milas said. rental agreement or insurance binder on file?’ They just took this Milas produced an insurance binder and a rental agreement man’s [Marcoux’s] word and voted us out,” Milas said. signed July 28, 2009, by Karen Silva, the town official who rents As far as the issue of complaints from neighbors, Milas said that town properties—all documents refuting the School Committee’s the permit necessary to have the music and picnic was obtained. claims.

The School Committee also took offense at the words Tenney Milas also questioned why the committee voted to expel the Grammar School that is written on the church’s bus. church unanimously when no one had bothered to check the records “It’s where we meet.

We’re just saying who we “No one even asked the custodian if we had access the are and where we worship, so if people wanted to visit us, they’d know where to go,” Milas said. Milas said that there are between 250 to 300 members of the church that are Methuen residents. “Eight people are said to have complained about an event that we had a permit for and the school committee kicks the church out—a church that includes 250 to 300 Methuen residents,” Milas said. Granite United isn’t sitting by doing nothing. “We view this is an opportunity, not a setback; we’ll just have multiple services and go with it,” Milas said. Workmen perform renovations to the auditorium of Granite United Church now that the church will no longer be meeting at Tenney Grammar School as of August 31

New Deputy- continued from front page
“Unfortunately, in this job, we deal with a lot of tragedy and everyone who works this job has to deal with those instances,” said Patten. “In this profession, you often see what most people don’t see or can’t believe could happen. Nothing shocks me anymore,” Patten added. So now that Shawn Patten is officially Deputy Police Chief, he has goals and aspirations he would like to see in his career. His personal accomplishment was earning his master’s degree in Organizational Leadership from Southern New Hampshire University’s School of Business this past June. Some of the changes and improvements he has assisted with or overseen the last few years are bringing back the motorcycle unit, which was made possible through very generous donations; computer system upgrades, bringing the Salem Police Department up to where other departments have been as far as technology goes for quite some time; and a new fleet management system, which keeps all of the department’s vehicles and equipment in tip-top condition. He described the department as a people-driven business. “I am tasked with leading people who deal with people. We [management] have a great relationship with the employees here and, as a team, we continue to set things in motion, as we have been doing over the past several years to make a better department that serves its community in the best way possible. We are now using cutting-edge training techniques and are a much more progressive department with training, management, and how we do things as a whole and as a team. We have fostered a great relationship with the unions and that benefits everyone; the employees of Salem Police Department and the Salem taxpayers,” Patten said. Shawn says he has learned a lot from the people he works with and works for. Salem police is a very young department, as there has been a high level of turnover of personnel over the past few years. As for the past 20 years, the department has maintained a maximum staffing of 60 full-time officers, who are now doing 135 percent more of the workload than there was 1020 years ago. Approximately two years ago, to try and better handle the increase in activity, the department strategically redeployed its manpower by implementing an overlap of officers across the shifts during peak time activity. Patten said that by just adding a few extra officers while shift changes happen during peak activity levels has worked out well and made the team stronger, and enables officers to provide a quicker response. The department’s teamwork also pulled together after the proposal for a new police station was voted down in March 2008. The department pulled together as a team and sat down looking to address some of the safety issues inside the building on their own. “We have a very talented group of people here as far as carpentry and such goes. We banded together as a team and some of the materials were even donated to us. We did the booking room over, as there were major safety issues there that are now fixed, we painted walls, replaced ceiling tiles that were damaged by water leaks, and put up new cabinets. As a collaborative effort, we all got together to see what was most important and what we could do on our own, and we got it done. It really helped make the station a better place to work and helped to boost morale,” Patten said. Improvements to the station are an ongoing project and have been for years. It is unclear at this point in time if a new station will be proposed to voters several years down the road. “We have outstanding men and women working here and we are always looking for ways to improve. Chief Paul Donovan has set the standards very high and it takes a team effort to be successful. After 15 years, I still love coming to work every day. I live here in Salem with my family, my children attend Salem schools, my wife is very involved with the schools, and I am very fortunate to be where I am at now. I have a vested interest in this department, but also in the community as well, as this community is where my family and I call home,” said Patten. I really must express my appreciation to Chief Donovan, the Town Manager, the entire police department, my family, and the community for giving me this opportunity of a promotion to Deputy Chief, but I really need to express also how critical it is to get the remaining promotions approved. I was really disappointed to learn those promotions were not approved. The operation of the police department is a team effort. We know that without the hard-working and dedicated people, none of the improvements and inner workings of the department would be successful. The remaining promotions issue is a critical one as far as operations and morale are concerned. I hope to see this resolved sooner than later, as the people waiting are very deserving and committed to this department and community,” said Patten. In all, after really looking back at his career, Shawn Patten has, in essence, grown up at Salem Police Department. Now to see so many young officers coming in and joining the force over the past few years, he really enjoys being a mentor and leader. “I try to lead by example and have set the standards for myself very high. The Chief has been a catalyst for this department and a great Chief who supports this department. He makes sure that we are all safe, progressive, and committed to serving this community. I have taken the lead from him in how we work to meet all our goals,” said Patten. So, what would it take to make Patten retire? He laughs at this question since he loves coming to work every day. “A close friend and I split Powerball tickets all the time. He asked me once how much it would take for me to retire. I told him $100 million. He told me, ‘You’re nuts! Well, forget it, then—I don’t want to split Powerball tickets with you anymore!’”
“Kn w Y ur Car”
less to insure. Hanging on to a car – and taking care of it – can definitely save you money versus taking on a new-car payment. The key to maximizing your savings on an old car is actually to spend a little on regular maintenance. That will allow you to avoid more costly, emergency repairs caused by the breakdown of poorly maintained parts. Follow these simple steps to ensure good maintenance helps you avoid expensive repairs: 1. Get to know the owner’s manual. Your owner’s manual will provide vital information on your vehicle’s systems, and should include a maintenance schedule. If you no longer have the owner’s manual or want more detailed maintenance information for your car, you can buy a factory service manual online. Auto parts retailer RockAuto.com sells manuals for $12 to $50—money well spent if it helps you avoid a repair that costs hundreds or even thousands. 2. Take care of the timing belt. Most cars newer than 20 years old have timing belts that need to be changed, sometimes as often as every 60,000 miles. When the timing belt breaks it may either simply leave the car immobile or, worse, if the car has what the RockAuto.com auto parts catalog calls an “interference engine,” then a broken timing belt will likely cause expensive damage to other engine parts. Look in your owner’s manual to see if your car has a timing belt and when it must be replaced.

Five ways to ensure your older car costs less to keep running

Which is cheaper—a monthly car payment for a new vehicle that will almost certainly have lower maintenance and repair costs than an older car? Or keeping on top of regular maintenance and repair of an older car, and saving yourself the monthly car payment? If the numbers are any clue, it would seem more Americans believe holding on to an older car costs less than paying for a new one. The average age of passenger cars is now more than 9 years, according to data from R.L. Polk. And the average price of a new car tops $28,000, according to the Federal Trade Commission. What’s more, older cars depreciate less and often cost
3. Check your fluids. Make sure you know the manufacturer’s recommendations for what type of oil, antifreeze, transmission, power steering and brake fluid your vehicle uses. Using outdated or the wrong fluid can cause damage—and void any remaining warranty on your car. Check your owner’s manual to determine what kind of fluid to use and when each needs to be changed. 4. Pay attention to shock absorbers and struts. These parts protect the suspension, steering, brakes and other vehicle systems. Waiting until the car starts to ride funny or bounce before replacing the shocks and struts may cause costly damage to other parts. Plus, a car that handles and stops poorly is less safe. Monroe.com presents a strong case for replacing original shocks and struts on most popular cars at 50,000 miles. Consult your service manual or mechan8-6 ic to get recommendations for 8-? your specific vehicle. 5. Stay on schedule. The maintenance schedule in your owner’s or shop manual will also list important inspections to perform periodically, and repairs or maintenance you can expect the vehicle will need throughout its

serviceable life. It will often be cheaper to replace auto parts before they break than after. Use the chart in your manual to keep track of completed maintenance. Performing regularly scheduled maintenance also will allow you to anticipate expenses and budget for them—a tactic which will always save you more money than paying for emergency repairs. - Courtesy of ARAcontent

Voluntary Water Restriction
by Jay Hobson Residents using the public water supply are being asked to voluntarily restrict the amount of water they use due to low levels of Canobie Lake, the town’s water source. According to Dept. of Public Works Director Rick Russell, the surface of the lake has fallen to 216.64 feet above sea level, which, according to current protocols, triggers a voluntary reduction in water use. “This is voluntary; there are no penalties for non-compliance now, but it could trigger a mandatory restriction if levels [of the lake] fall low enough,” Russell said. Residents are asked to conserve water and to limit outside water use from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., to use commercial car washes to wash their cars, and to water their gardens sparingly and limit the times when irrigation sprinklers are used. At a recent selectmen’s meeting, Selectman Pat Hargreaves suggested the voluntary reduction in water use might be implemented sooner. “Why don’t we do it now if we see the level of the lake is falling?” Hargreaves asked. Board member Elizabeth Roth said that there were protocols in place and that the ordinance already on the books should be observed. “I agree with Beth. We already have a system in place and we need to follow the established guidelines,” Selectman Everett McBride said. A mandatory restriction would be put in place if the water level falls below 216.15 before August 30 and 215.95 between August 30 and September 15. Violations of a mandatory restriction include a fine and possibly the resident’s water being shut off.

Smart moves: Five tips that will make moving to college a snap
think of them. In addition, keep a running list of items that you want to bring, but which you’re still using leading up to the move. When the time finally comes, make sure you have sturdy boxes in a variety of sizes, along with foam “peanuts” and bubble wrap to protect your fragile items, a good supply of packing tape and bold markers for labeling boxes. Moving blankets and hand trucks will make the experience easier—be sure you’ve got them on hand. 3. Mark and group. Label the outside of your boxes as you pack. Try making a generalized list of what’s in the box. It’s also a good idea to put your first name or symbol that’ll help you recognize what’s yours on the box, particularly if you have roommates or are moving into a dorm. In the hectic whirlwind of thousands of students moving in at once, it’s important to cut down on confusion. 4. Plan ahead. If you’re renting a moving truck, it’s essential to reserve at least two weeks in advance. Because it’s a busy moving season, delaying could leave you stuck without transportation. Most movers find the 12- or 16-foot truck perfect for moving a few large items or the contents of a small apartment. For guidance with truck selection, visit www.PenskeTruckRental.com. 5. Safety and security. Trucks are taller, wider, heavier and require more stopping distance than the vehicle you are used to driving. Take extra precautions, especially when the truck is loaded. Watch out for low-hanging tree branches and building overhangs and use extra caution when cornering. To protect your belongings, park in well-lit areas and padlock the rear door. This can be particularly important when moving to college, as thieves have a ripe opportunity to take advantage of the hectic moving days leading up to the start of the academic year. To make sure you’ve got everything you need on moving day, create a travel bag for keeping important paperwork (like your registration information and dorm confirmations), credit cards, identification, change of clothes, drinks and snacks close at hand. For a complete list of moving tips, visit www.PenskeTruckRental.com. As summer winds down, college freshmen – and sophomores, juniors and seniors – are gearing up to move onto campus. Whether you’re moving to college for the first time or the third, you’ll find there are ways to make your move smarter and, believe it or not, more enjoyable. You can find many resources designed to lessen the headaches of moving, and it’s worth it to use them. One of the most practical things you can do for a college move is to rent a moving truck. Since college moves often mean traveling long distances, it can be hard to get a lot of people to help with the move. Rather than stuffing gear into multiple vehicles, a truck is a good simplifying solution. Rather than relying on guesswork, take some tips from the experts at Penske Truck Rental, who have been helping people move for more than 40 years: 1. Condense. It’s quite likely that your space at college is going to be smaller than what you’ve been accustomed to living in at home. Stuffing every last thing you own into your moving boxes is a bad idea—you’ll only end up with a cluttered mess in your new home. Start paring things down by considering what you need most and what you use most now. For instance, if you have some clothes that you like for special occasions but wear rarely, it’s best not to bring them. Take the clothes, shoes and personal items that you go to time and time again. As for what you’ll need, see if your college has a checklist of essential items to act as a guide. 2. Tackle packing bit by bit. By starting early, you’ll avoid the stress that comes with rushing. Because you want to take a minimum of items, it can be difficult to actually get packed ahead of time, but it’s worth it to keep an open box to put items in as you - Courtesy of ARAcontent

Teachers Funding Classroom Supplies
Many teachers look to provide exciting experiences for children in the classroom, frequently using interactive supplies and techniques intended to make learning fun. While teachers often get an annual school supply budget, too often what teachers use in the classroom is purchased with money out of their own pockets. That’s even more true in light of recession-related budget cutbacks that have forced teachers to reach deeper into their own funds to pay for supplies.

Maria Bertolone Installed as Greater Salem Rotary President
submitted by Laura Allain Maria Bertolone, President of the Greater Salem NH Rotary Club, invites you to Salem’s Oktoberfest on October 15 from 6-10 p.m. and October 16 from noon-10 p.m. on the grounds of Rockingham Park. Why don’t you bring your friends and family for some food, beverage, music, and entertainment? Maria was installed as Greater Salem Rotary’s ninth president at the annual installation dinner held on June 23 at the Atkinson Country Club. Maria is a Paul Harris Fellow, an honor bestowed on her by the Greater Salem Rotary Club for her dedication to the Rotarian motto of “Service Above Self.” In April 2008, the Club sponsored Maria to be part of a team of volunteers from the Greater Boston Rotary District No. 7930 that spent two weeks in remote Honduras villages through Rotary International’s Clean Water Project. Maria is a long-time resident of Salem and is currently employed at TD Bank’s North Broadway office as Vice President and Small Business Relationship Manager. Maria has been a Rotarian for seven years and has been in the Banking Industry for over 30 years. Besides the Oktoberfest event, the Rotary Club of Greater Salem, NH, is actively involved in community projects such as sponsoring Salem’s Annual Fishing Derby, donating over one thousand dictionaries each year to every third grader in the Greater Salem Area, granting higher education scholarships to local seniors, and providing backpacks and school supplies to many young students in need. The Rotary Club of Greater Salem NH is a part of Rotary International, which has more than 1.2 million members in over 33,000 service clubs worldwide, and members of the Greater Salem Rotary Club are welcomed at any of those club meetings. On behalf of the Club, Maria extends her warm welcome to members of the Greater Salem business community to experience Rotary. The Greater Salem Rotary Club meets for breakfast at 7:30 every Friday morning at the Rockingham Race Track. Community leaders who either live or work in Salem, Windham, Atkinson, Hampstead, or Pelham, and are interested in placing service above self within their own lives, are invited to attend. For more information about Rotary International, go to www.Rotary.org, or about the Greater Salem NH Rotary Club, visit our Website at www. salemnhrotary.org.
Salem Men Stabbed Over Estate Issues
by Andrea Ganley-Dannewitz Two Salem men who were stabbed during a family dispute on Thursday, August 19, are recovering and the suspect in the assault is being held without bail. Salem police say they, along with the Salem Fire Department, were dispatched to 84 Bridge Street at 10:45 p.m. that night for a report of a double stabbing. Officers were on scene very quickly and encountered one victim, Scott Sullivan, Sr., 48, of Salem, in the driveway with stab wounds to his arm. According to Salem Deputy Police Chief Shawn Patten, Scott Sullivan stated to the officers that he and his son were both stabbed during a fight. He then told the officers that his brother, Jeffrey Sullivan, 49, of Salem and Lawrence, MA, was the suspect. Officers located the second victim, Michael Sullivan, 21, of Salem, lying on a couch in the residence with a cloth to his chest and abdomen suffering from life-threatening injuries caused by stab wounds. He was immediately transported by the Salem Fire Department to the Lawrence General Hospital in Lawrence, MA, where he underwent emergency surgery. Michael’s father, Scott Sullivan, Sr., was treated at the scene and went to Lawrence General Hospital on his own. He was treated there, receiving stitches for his wounds, and then released. Michael Sullivan remained hospitalized after undergoing surgery. The suspect, Jeffrey Sullivan, fled the scene about one minute before the first officer’s arrival and was apprehended by Salem police just over the Massachusetts border in Methuen on Route 28 just minutes later. Police from Methuen were called out to the scene in their town, where they took custody of Jeffrey Sullivan and arrested him, charging him as a fugitive from justice. He was then taken to Methuen Police Department, where he was held with no bail as a fugitive from justice, pending extradition back to New Hampshire. The vehicle he was driving was also towed from that scene and brought back to Methuen Police Department as well. Methuen Police later took Jeffrey Sullivan to Holy Family Hospital for treatment for broken ribs. It is not clear at this time if his ribs were broken while he attacked his brother and nephew or at another point in time. He was arraigned at his hospital bed at Holy Family Hospital and pleaded not guilty to the charge of being a fugitive from justice on Friday afternoon. He was also extradited back to New Hampshire the same day. Salem detectives brought him back to Salem Police Department once he was released from the hospital and processed him on charges of first-degree assault and attempted second-degree murder, both felonies. According to police affidavits, Jeffrey Sullivan went to the home of his brother, Scott, and nephew, Michael, to confront them over “estate issues.” A dispute ensued and Scott Sullivan, Sr., instructed his brother to leave the property. Allegedly, Scott Sullivan returned inside his residence and a few moments later, he heard the sound of air leaving a tire. He quickly went back outside with his son, Michael, and saw that the rear passenger tire of Michael’s girlfriend’s vehicle had been stabbed and deflated. Together, he and his son walked around the vehicle and allegedly found Jeffrey Sullivan hiding there. It is then that a physical fight ensued and Jeffrey Sullivan stabbed his brother and nephew in the driveway during the altercation. Jeffrey Sullivan was arraigned at Salem District Court on Monday, August 23, to face both felony charges of firstdegree assault and attempted second-degree murder. He did not have to enter a plea during his video arraignment on Monday due the charges being felonies. He remains at the Rockingham County House of Corrections on $100,000 cash bail. Robert Price, Prosecutor for the Salem Police Department, asked Judge John Korbey to maintain that bail due to the serious nature of the offenses he is accused of committing. He is due back in court on Monday for a probable cause hearing.

Man Claims Detox, Arrested on Crack/ Cocaine Charges
by Andrea Ganley-Dannewitz Police in Salem responded to a call of a man who appeared to be in some sort of distress on Tuesday, August 17, around 8:45 a.m. in the area of Citizens Bank on South Broadway. Responding officers located a vehicle in the Rite Aid parking lot next door with a male subject inside, identified as Scott Eaton, 38, of Auburn. Officers observed Eaton’s behavior and actions, and he claimed to the officers that he was detoxing from drug abuse, according to Deputy Police Chief Shawn Patten. The officers at the scene dealing with him described Eaton’s behavior as “erratic.” A search of Eaton and the vehicle turned up crack cocaine, powder cocaine, drug paraphernalia, a stolen social Scott Eaton security card, and a knife in his possession. The officers determined that Eaton had been smoking crack in his vehicle and once he was taken into custody, a background check revealed that he was a convicted felon in California and also had outstanding warrants there. Eaton was arraigned at Salem District Court last Tuesday and is being held on $50,000 cash bail. He faces a slew of charges, including two counts of felony possession of a controlled drug, transporting a controlled drug, and being a felon in possession of a dangerous weapon. The outstanding warrants out of California do not require extradition, according to Patten. It is unknown if authorities there will be coming to claim Eaton at this time.

Competition Will Breed Success for Blue Devils
by Chris White It’s not always easy to reach the next step, but most often, a little healthy competition within your own team might just do the trick. That will be the case for the Salem field hockey team this season, as it looks to build on last year. The Blue Devils went 11-4-1 in 2009, tying them for fourth in Class L at the end of the regular season. The Devils won their opening round playoff game at home against Manchester Central, but then fell to Exeter on the road in the quarterfinals. The league was deep last year, and this year will be very much the same, competing in what is now Division 1. The Devils will need to step up, and they plan to do that by pushing each other to improve. “There’s good, healthy competition and I think it’s pushing these girls very well,” Salem head coach John Gatsas said. “Competition will breed success again, and we just have to improve every game and work on our consistency.” This year, the Blue Devils had 37 athletes come out for field hockey—18 of them freshmen. Even with the competition between the players, the veterans are still meshing well with the newcomers and vice versa. “The seniors we have this year are great role models,” Gatsas said. “They’re working with the younger kids at practice. They’re helping them out by showing them things they need to know for the high school level. They’re molding very well together.” Salem returns a strong nucleus that includes Meghan Bench, Melissa Higgins, Sarah Frahm, Danielle Ferraro, and Shayla Derosa. Bench and Ferraro will provide a solid attack on the front line, while Higgins and Frahm will play the midfield. Currently, there’s a battle for the starting goalie position between three players, including Ali Breton, the team’s goalkeeper last season. Another addition to this year’s program will be Melinda Rozumek, as she returns to Salem to coach the junior varsity squad. Salem opened its pre-season competition in a scrimmage versus Windham at Salem High. Despite Salem dominating the first quarter of the scrimmage, the teams played to a 3-3 tie. The Devils will continue with practices, scrimmages, and a couple jamborees until their regular season opener at home against Nashua North on Wednesday, September 1. Game time will be at 4 p.m.

Boys’ Soccer Primed for 2010 Season
by Chris White The Salem Blue Devils are coming into this season poised to build on last year. In 2009, the Blue Devils made the playoffs as a lower seed and upset Winnacunnet on the road in the first round of the Class L boys’ soccer tournament. They went on to lose in the quarterfinals, but the step provided a good benchmark. With their hard work in the off-season, the Devils will look to surpass what they accomplished last fall. “The fact that everyone came in really fit and in shape was a plus for us,” Salem coach Anthony Karibian said. “We have a lot of guys who have been training and working hard all year-round. Hopefully, that will translate into some positive results.” With most of the team’s players on their last go-around (13 seniors), this season can be a great opportunity for Salem to do some damage in Division 1. The team will be led by Brandon Cole and Brad Hosey in the backfield, and Max Gordon in the midfield. Meanwhile, Peter Ventola and Brian Smart will lead the attack up front. Despite a senior-laden squad, this season may be even more challenging than in 2009 with the divisional realignment by the NHIAA. Every game will be a battle up until the last week of the regular season, which is due in large part to the fact that only 12 teams will make the post-season instead of the usual 16. “It’s going to be more challenging with the new format,” Karibian said. “We can’t take games off or take it easy. We have to play everything and steal every point we can. Every match is going to be a battle, but I think it will make us stronger in the end.” The Blue Devils started preparing for their new challenges this season with a scrimmage at home versus Timberlane last Thursday. The Devils did well, as both veteran and younger players competed hard and showed a lot of promise. The Devils will rely mostly on their defense to win games this season. They have a solid goalkeeper in John Lyons, and they will look to balance their strong defense with some good attacking runs as well. The team will also look to play a lot of smart soccer in order to be successful. SEPTEMBER 17, 2010 “If we can play more intelligent soccer instead of kick and chase, that would be good for us,” Karibian said. “We’ll need to play that way to get into the playoffs. Hopefully, we can reach the final game, which is definitely a reasonable goal for us.”

Boys’ Cross Country Returns Solid Crew for 2010
by Chris White After some rigorous summer training, the Salem boys’ cross country team is looking to prove itself on the Division 1 circuit this fall. The Blue Devils have many of their runners returning, but still feature a relatively young group. The tight-knit squad of 13 athletes is on the rise and will start this season by building on what they accomplished last year. “We can make a push this year,” Salem coach Jason Thibodeau said. “We’re mainly focusing on training right now, but we’ll see where our times are soon.” This year, Salem will return five of its top seven from 2009. Ben Dutton and Dan Schmidt will be the team’s top two runners to begin the season. Both athletes ran times in the low 17s at the Send in photos of your pet. Class L Championships held at Derryfield Park last year, while Submissions will receive coupons also placing in the top 50 of the field. to many local businesses Mitch Dutton, John Rheaume, and Eric Hutchins will round out the top five. The team will be captained by seniors Hutchins and Schmidt. Mark Lambert will also be a member of the team’s senior class in his fourth year with the program, while senior Connor Tremblay joins the Blue Devils for his first cross country season. The ultimate goal for the Blue Devils is to finish in the top eight at the Division 1 Championships in October. A top-eight finish there will allow the team to move on to the Meet of Champions. It will be a challenge, though, as the competition in the state continues to get better each year. “We’re going to work at getting to the Meet of Champions first and then go from there,” Thibodeau said. “After that, we’ll see if we can make New Englands. If we can just keep improving times, we’ll get to where we want to be.” Ben Dutton finishes strong in a home meet last season photo by Chris White
