Mr. SHS: And the Winner is…
by Jay Hobson Salem High held its 12th annual Mr. Salem High School search to a packed house on Friday evening. With hundreds of screaming fans all cheering for their favorites, the program was filled with campy humor, dance numbers, sexy legs competitions, formal wear competitions, and well – to be kind – we’ll call it singing. Ten young men, each sponsored by a young lady, danced and performed their hearts out vying for the coveted title, but it was Mike Melino performing a Lady Gaga song with an entourage of female dancers that clinched the title for Melino. Wearing a sash and crown and clutching a trophy, Melino posed with his dancers after his win. “It feels great, to be quite honest. I was a little nervous,” Melino said. Asked what made him choose the number he performed, Melino said, “I’m a real big fan of Lady Gaga.” The winner of the sexy legs competition went to Chad Livingston, who, along with the other nine contestants, walked past a closed curtain with enough of an opening to only show their legs. Some were adorned in heels and fishnet stockings, and some wore work boots and other accessories. Overall, the students and staff put on an excellent evening of fun, competition, and – well – “singing.”

Preschoolers Learn about Early Native American Life

submitted by Rachel Hill, Boys & Girls Club of Salem The preschool students at the Greater Salem Boys & Girls Club were delighted by the visit of Harry Burnham of Windham and his granddaughter Bryanna of Salem. Dressed in Native American costume, Burnham regaled the students with tales of what life had been like for the first Americans indigenous to our area. Burnham brought along a wonderful collection of artifacts that the children were allowed to touch and explore, bringing to life many of the stories they have heard this month.

St. Joseph’s Second Annual

Service Night
by Robyn Hatch St. Joseph’s School in Salem held their Second Annual Service Night to a huge crowd. The junior-high students had been working for many months with the service projects. Advent calendars, made out of strung candy, were designed for over 70 orders that had been prepaid. Rosaries, strung by seventh graders, were made in unbelievable amounts for their Kenya Pen Pals. The famous Blankies were again made by seventh graders for donations to Project Linus, and the eighth graders assembled Thanksgiving baskets for the needy in the Salem community. The kids were having a lot of fun with each project, but the feeling of “giving” was carried on throughout the night. This was a time to be creative, laugh, and be silly, and to know that even the smallest project was a big help to a needy family. This was an incredible evening of food, fun, and community service. Good job to everyone who helped make this such a great event! Margie Lealonos and Mo Shyne work on blankets Harry Burnham, Bryanna Burnham, and Abby Ahlers staff photos by Robyn Hatch

New Hampshire Church Hosts ‘Barefoot Weekend’
This coming Thanksgiving weekend (November 27 and 28), Granite United Church of Salem is hosting a unique event to raise awareness for several Boston Homeless Shelters. The event is “Barefoot Weekend” and the goal is this: church attendees are being asked to bring an extra pair of shoes with them to church and leave them to be donated to Boston Homeless Shelters. Early in November, Granite United Church raised over 5,000 pounds of food with the help of the church and local businesses. It was during this time that they learned that lightly worn shoes were a huge request from homeless shelters in Boston. One of the core values of Granite United Church is to be a community of people who are known for generosity and throughout the months of November and December, they will continue to do events for non-profit charities and organizations. Anyone who wishes to donate a pair of gently worn shoes can do so during the weeks of November 22 to December 3. You don’t have to be a member of Granite United Church to be a part of this collection. The church is located at 1 Sand Hill Road, Salem, and donations can be dropped at the church offices during normal business hours (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.). Please wrap the shoes in a clean, plastic grocery bag, so that pairs of shoes will stay together and make it easier for the shelters to sort through when they are donated. Following the “Barefoot Weekend,” Granite United Church will be hosting a series of Christmas Concerts the week leading up to Christmas (December 22-24). The concert will be completely free, but they have made a request that each family bring a new, unwrapped toy. The toys will be collected and given to the Salem Police Department as a part of their Toys For Tots toy drive. For more information on “Barefoot Weekend” and/or the upcoming Christmas concerts, you can visit www.GraniteUnited.com, contact Patty Klinger pklinger@gsbc.net or (617) 470-7632, or contact Tom King at 893-4065, ext. 13. Patty Klinger, Granite United Church - Salem As free Americans, we cannot continue to tolerate our elected officials to make laws that undermine our freedoms that were given under the U.S. Constitution. Current, newly elected Pro-leftist politicians in NH and MA are persons that need to stick to obeying the laws of the land and following the Constitution and Bill of Rights! Will they do such a thing? Or will they continue to love more power, hurting all American citizens? Example: By supporting Illegal immigration. They do not do this for money, but more for political power to move their World Socialist Agenda forward for more big government control over all our lives. They are trying to control our lives from the cradle to the grave by bankrupting America. With the help of international bankers, these misled American politicians want control of this country by manipulating the currencies of the world, which will cause disruptions. The Federal Reserve, now printing up to $600 billion more dollars and flooding the world markets with less value, will increase goods and services, causing inflation and lowering the value of the American dollar. The People in Communist Russia and Nazi Germany allowed manipulation, and their countries were lost. Thank God America is not yet lost. However, how soon before our country becomes controlled by a big, central government, liberal dictatorship? Dictated, progressive, liberal goals do not change! In Congress, D.C., Massachusetts, or Concord, NH, we could lose some or all these rights if elected leftists continue to do the bidding of powerful, lobbyist, socialist groups that want to destroy America. Americans have a clear choice now that many new patriotic candidates have been elected— either “live free or die.” Americans need to stand up! History can repeat itself—our grandchildren deserve better! Be vigilant! Fight for Conservative freedom values every day. Do not accept the deceptive lies on these “changes for the better” they want us to accept. Contact your elected officials and express your concerns on issues. Ed Brooks - Salem

by Ron Penczak Salem police haven’t given up on two Flim-Flam incidents that took place at the Sears store in the Mall at Rockingham Park, and are hoping the public can help them solve these crimes. The first took place on June 1, and a copycat crime occurred on September 21; on both occasions, the victims were notified at their place of employment

Air Force JROTC Undergoes Evaluation
submitted by Thomas J. Puzzo, CMSgt, USAF (ret), AFJROTC Aerospace Science Instructor, SHS On Monday, November 8, Salem High School’s Air Force JROTC program received a visit from Colonel Gary Chillcott, who conducted a Unit Evaluation on behalf of Air Force JROTC Headquarters. Each Air Force JROTC unit around the world is required to have a unit evaluation every three years. All areas in the program are inspected to include contractual agreements between the Air Force and school, instructor performance, cadet operations, logistics, financial management, dress and appearance, drill and ceremony, and community service involvement. As was the case in the 2007 inspection, Salem’s JROTC program received an “Exceeds Standards,” the highest possible rating this year. “My deepest thanks to all of you for your hard work in preparing for and executing your unit evaluation Monday,” commented Colonel Chillcott. “What a wonderful unit with superb instructors and exceptional school and administration support. Additionally, I was extremely impressed with all of the cadets— specifically their absolutely outstanding dress and appearance, respect and courtesies, emphasis on academics, excellent ownership initiatives and briefing, perfect drill, and countless diverse community service accomplishments. I am extremely proud that both the cadets and the instructors earned the highest rating in their respective sections of the evaluation. Again, my congratulations to all of the staff seniors and juniors for their outstanding leadership and numerous contributions to your Doggie Daycare program.” & Training Center Sundays, 9:30 am Cadets Joseph Sweeney and 890.6239 (for puppies up to 6 months) Evan Malinowski were singled out wwwWOOFWOOF.net • 70 Range Rd, Windham, NH for earning special recognition as the unit’s Top Performers for Windham Bible Chapel their involvement in the unit and Invites you to hard work in preparing the unit for the inspection. “You all truly exemplify the AF core values of integrity, service before self, and excellence in all we do.

that Sears had an inventory of Samsung televisions that they wanted to liquidate. The telephone contacts were made by a male. On June 1, the suspect, a male wearing a Sears badge, met the victim outside of Sears, where $1,700 in cash was exchanged for two televisions. The suspect told the victim to wait outside the pick-up area, where he would deliver the televisions. The receipt was proven to be fraudulent. On September 21, the victim agreed to meet

at the Sears store around 2 p.m. After arriving, the victim by cell phone talked to a man named Teddy, who said that an employee by the name of Shannon, who was wearing a Sears ID, would meet her outside the receiving door with a receipt for four televisions. The suspect took the $3,000 and said she was going to accounting to advise ‘Helen’ that the televisions were paid for. The victim then received another phone call from Teddy, who told her to wait by her car with the trunk open and the sets would arrive in two minutes. After 10 minutes, the victim went inside Sears and learned that she was duped. Fortunately, with the September 21 incident, the victim was able to identify the female suspect from surveillance video. The suspect, having a slim build, was between 5’5” and 5’7” with dirty blonde hair that fell below her shoulders, and appeared to be in her mid to late 20s. She was wearing a pink V-neck sweater, blue jeans, and black suede boots that came just below her knees. Salem police can’t say for sure the crimes are related, but there are too many similarities that they can’t rule out that possibility.

Prepping the Holiday Bird

photo by Andrea Ganley-Dannewitz

Here are a few ideas for your holiday bird. Bradley brand smokers provided these for your use. Kitchen oven simple This is an incredibly quick and easy way to put rich, smoke flavor on an oven-cooked turkey. Put your choice of wood in the smoker. Most turkeys and chicken benefit from 60-80 minutes of heavy smoke and you will get an incredibly rich flavor. Place thawed, washed, and dried turkey into the smoker and allow it to smoke for 60-80 minutes. For this recipe, you need not turn on the Bradley cooker unit—just the smoke unit. Once the turkey is smoked, prepare and cook it in your kitchen oven as you normally would. Smoke and oil frying Generally, the only way to add flavor to deep-fried turkey is to inject all kinds of stuff into the bird before lowering it (carefully) into the deep fryer. This time, try placing the thawed, washed, and dried bird into your smoker for 60-100 minutes (no need to turn on the Bradley cooking unit). After this smoking period, then season and deep-fry it per your fryer’s directions. What you get is a deep-fried bird with rich, smoke flavor—life is good and this fried bird is great.

Officials from Two States Celebrate Lowe’s Grand Opening
by Jay Hobson Lowe’s, the long-awaited replacement to the razed Salem Plaza property, officially opened its doors with a “board-cutting” ceremony that was attended by officials from Salem and Methuen, MA. The property straddles the border of Methuen and Salem, with the building in Salem and part of the parking lot in Methuen. Store manager Brian Bucknam cut the hammer-shaped board rather than a ribbon. . All were beaming as the hand saw sliced through the wooden hammer, officially bringing to an end the construction of the facility that produced about 120 new jobs for area workers, according to Bucknam. The building was supposed to include a Staples store, but Staples “backed out,” according to planning director Ross Moldoff, who was also in attendance along with Salem police and fire officials, and an empty space stands in its place. The store had an opening last week for contractors and business has been brisk ever since, according to Lowe’s staff. Immediately after the boad cutting, Bucknam announced a $1,000 donation to the Salem school district, which Superintendent of Schools Michael Delahanty announced would be used to purchase books for teachers to use for the school district’s anti-bullying campaign.

Pine Grove Cemetery Memorial
by S. Aaron Shamshoyan Thanks to the work of Eagle Scout Danny Stacey, along with support from the community, a new veterans memorial was unveiled at Pine Grove Cemetery. The memorial, in the shape of a yellow ribbon, contains six flags for the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, and the POW/MIA. The flags were sponsored by local residents and organizations, with the American flag standing tallest in the center sponsored by the Salem Firemen’s Association. The project started about 18 months ago when Stacey approached Hargreaves asking for some ideas for projects. Hargreaves passed the inquiry along to Rick Russell, DPW Director, who suggested “a little memorial over here at the Pine Grove Cemetery,” according to Hargreaves. From then until now, a lot of financial, spiritual, and physical work went into the project, said Hargreaves, putting emphasis on physical efforts. As the ceremony concluded, the sponsors raised the flags, with the American flag being raised last to the Pledge of Allegiance, and then followed by the National Anthem. Some military mothers then presented wreaths decorated with the theme of each branch of the Armed Forces. State Rep. Anne Priestley presented Stacey with a certificate of appreciation signed by the Salem State Representatives. This was only a soft opening of the Danny Stacey’s Eagle Scout Project reaches completion in Pine Grove Cemetery memorial, with a larger ceremony to be held on Memorial Day weekend in 2011.

submitted by NH State Attorney General’s Office Attorney General Michael A. Delaney announces that New Hampshire recently finalized a settlement with AstraZeneca as part of larger national case against the drug manufacturer. The case involved the company’s alleged off-label marketing of Seroquel, an antipsychotic medication approved to treat certain psychological disorders. New Hampshire received more than $2.4 million in the settlement out of the $520 million that was paid to states for Medicaid program damages. The settlement addressed allegations that from 2001 to 2006, AstraZeneca promoted the sale of Seroquel for uses that the Food and Drug Administration had not approved, including Alzheimer’s disease, anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and dementia. In a separate case, New Hampshire has recovered more than $175,000 from drug maker Novartis as part of a national Medicaid settlement worth $66 million. In that case, it was alleged that Novartis, and a predecessor company, Chiron, engaged in the offlabel marketing of tobramycin, an inhalable antibacterial marketed under the name TOBI. The Food and Drug Administration had approved TOBI for treating lung infections associated with cystic fibrosis. The settlement addressed allegations that between 2001 and 2006, Chrion and then-Novartis promoted TOBI for unapproved uses, including for diseases other than cystic fibrosis and for cystic fibrosis patients that did not meet the parameters for FDA-approved use. “The Medicaid program provides important prescription drug coverage for New Hampshire’s most vulnerable residents. In order to protect New Hampshire taxpayers from paying no more than is necessary for this program, and as demonstrated by these settlements, my Office will continue to work closely with the Attorney General from other states in pursuing drug manufacturers when the evidence supports such action,” said Attorney General Delaney.

Haigh School Receives Turkey Donations for Thanksgiving Baskets
by Robyn Hatch Now is the season for giving, and no place but Haigh School is this showing up to such an extreme. Ten turkeys and home-baked pies were donated by a Salem family to put in each of the baskets that are being given to Salem families in the Haigh area. Each basket was made with individualism, and a special “love” was added to each. Candy bars, towels, and cute little extras were added to each basket. This was an anonymous delivery of these 10 family baskets put together by staff and friends. These were made for those families who are facing hardship at this time of year. These baskets will do more than fill empty bellies; they will help restore faith that there really are people who live among us who care for their brothers and sisters. There is a saying, “The more you give, the more you have. Abundance creates the ability to give; giving creates abundance.” This is a wonderful way to start the holiday season! (Michael Ouellette and son, Kyle, were the generous people who donated the turkeys and pies.)

Keeping Your Car Battery On Track For Winter

“Kn w Y ur Car”

40 Route 28 Windham, N.H 03087

Preventing a frozen battery in the winter is easier than you may think if you take some time to check out the situation before nasty weather sets in. To ensure that your car battery starts dependably, no matter how outrageous the weather, Interstate Batteries cold weather expert Gale Kimbrough offers some simple tips to protect your car battery against severe cold conditions: Test the starting power: The cold weather can dramatically reduce a battery’s available starting power, so have the vehicle’s starting and charging system tested every three months or every oil change. Charge the battery: Use a battery charger to maintain charge levels and keep the battery in good condition. If the battery is more than three years old, it should be tested to make sure it can survive the coldest winter months. Test the battery: Have the battery tested before taking a long trip or after it’s been recharged. Inspect the battery cables, posts and fasteners: Preparing your car for the winter doesn’t end with the battery itself. You need to inspect

your battery cables, posts and fasteners. Make sure the cables are in good shape and are secured firmly to the battery. Corrosion keeps power from flowing freely from the battery, reducing the power that is available to start the car. Keep it clean: Clean the battery terminals with a wire brush or spray some battery cleaner on the terminals. Here’s a cool idea: Be sure your car’s battery In just 30 seconds, is in good condition before venturing out Interstate All Battery Center into the cold. locations can provide motorists with a free printout analysis of their vehicle’s battery condition—from projected battery life to cranking performance. It’s important to have the battery and electrical system checked by a professional. Sometimes the naked eye cannot detect the presence of corrosion because it is hidden under the metal between the connection and the post. A fully charged battery is the best defense against cold weather and vehicle nonstarts because engines require more cranking amps in colder weather. The cold also reduces a battery’s efficiency, reducing its charge acceptance and ability to start an engine. An engine at 32 degrees Fahrenheit often demands more than 150 percent cranking power from the battery than it does at 80 degrees. At 0 degrees Fahrenheit, it can be 250 percent.

North Salem
submitted by North Salem School Happy Thanksgiving to all of our North Salem families! As the season of giving is now upon us, we’d like to extend a heartfelt thank-you to all who contributed to our VIPS (Volunteers Interested in Providing Service) Food Drive. There are many Salem food pantries that will benefit directly from your generosity! North Salem is abuzz with the holiday spirit and have several activities planned for December, including the Fifth Grade North Salem Winter concert, set for Monday, December 13, at 7 p.m. In addition, the fifth-grade chorus has been invited to sing at the Salem Traditional Christmas Concert on Friday, December 10, at 7 p.m. at Salem High School. Admission to the concert at the high school is free, but they are asking for either monetary donations or canned goods to support the Salem Food Pantry. The holiday season can also bring increased financial hardships as families try to make their children’s wishes come true with resources that are already stretched in today’s economy. The North Salem School has designed a two-fold program called The Giving Tree, which will provide some assistance to our North Salem families in need, and would allow other North Salem families the opportunity to help make the holidays brighter for these families. For those families who wish to receive gifts from our Giving Tree, their wishes will be written on ornaments placed on a Christmas tree in our lobby. No identifying information other than the child’s gender, age, and wish will be made available to anyone. For those families who have signed up to receive an ornament from our giving tree, we thank you for your generosity. When you have purchased the gift listed on the back of the ornament, please send it, preferably wrapped, by December 10 to school to the office. Please make sure that you attach the original ornament to the outside of the package to ensure that the gift gets to the right family. The drawing for the Dell Give the holiday gift of Inspiron Laptops is drawing near. The winners will be contacted by phone on (or before) December 15. All proceeds from the raffle will go toward the Playground Project. Thank you to all those who purchased tickets, and good luck! Thank you to all the parents and caretakers who visited North Salem last week as part of National Education Week. The students were very excited about having you get a glimpse into what they are learning in the classroom. Thank you to all the teachers, too! Character Counts has officially begun at North Salem! The program, in its fourth year, is a student recognition program based on six character traits of Respect, Caring, Responsibility, Fairness, Trustworthiness, and Citizenship. The school began this recognition program after starting out the school year with a focus on bullying. The first trait emphasis is Respect. Our school definition is: a respectful person lives by the Golden Rule; is polite and courteous to everyone; accepts others even if they look, act, or believe differently; and uses peaceful ways to solve conflicts. Students “caught” by staff members earn certificates, and recognition in our Caught Pond and in our local newspaper. You can

Book Bag Drive Brings Success
by Robyn Hatch The Salem School District wishes to thank Kevin Morales, owner of High Line Auto Sales; his two daughters, Madison, 7, and Marissa, 4; and Katy Palmer for their generous donation of 40 book bags to the students. After a larger company failed to come through with the donation of the book bags, Mr. Morales decided to donate both the bags and their contents. One weekend in mid-September, Ms. Palmer, Madison, and Marissa assembled them. With book bags, notebooks, folders, pens, pencils, crayons, markers, glue, and scissors spread out across the living room floor, Marissa and Madison put together the 40 book bags in assembly-line fashion. Ms. Palmer contacted the Superintendent’s Office and made arrangements with Mrs. Soley, Assistant Superintendent, to drop them off. The book bags have been distributed to the guidance counselors at Barron, Fisk, Haigh, North Salem, Soule, and Woodbury Schools to be given to any student in need of a new replacement book bag. The idea for this Book Bag Drive came from Volunteers Across America. What started out as one or two bags quickly grew into 40. The district appreciates the generosity from this family.

submitted by Haigh School Haigh School held several fun fall activities for students and families, thanks to many volunteers and a dedicated staff. The children enjoyed making candy apples, scarecrows, and scrapbooks as part of the Afterschool Program. At the school’s annual “Haigh Harvest,” the children especially enjoyed seeing many staff members and parents dressed in costume. Other Harvest activities included games, face painting, crafts, and a DJ that kept students dancing. Harvest attendees also supported the Salem Animal Rescue League by bringing much-needed donations. The school grounds were filled with family and friends watching the children parade by in their Halloween costumes, and classroom celebrations were a fun way to close out the month. Awards: Several awards were given out at our October school-wide assembly. “Haigh Hero” ribbons were awarded to students who demonstrated the September/October theme of ‘respect.’ Salem’s Postmaster Heidi Stewart was there to swear in students who were awarded jobs in Haigh’s “Wee Deliver” mail program. Students work together to sort, process, and deliver internal mail. Haigh also held their own election—candidates running for Student Council were required to write speeches and read them at the assembly; then, students voted.

Golf Course Holds ‘Turkeys for Golf’ for Local Food Pantry

Fisk Students Learn the Value of Respect
by Robyn Hatch On Wednesday, the entire student body at Fisk School went outside on the school’s grounds to culminate their school-wide Respect activity. Over the past month, during classroom guidance, over 300 students from 16 classrooms in the school brainstormed ways to show respect to others, to themselves, and to the environment. The students danced to Aretha Franklin’s “Respect” and created “respect chains,” with each “link” telling a way to show respect. Then, each classroom linked their chain to the chain of another classroom until they created one enormous respect chain encompassing everyone in the school. The students couldn’t wait to see if the chain was long enough to wrap around the school—lo and behold, it was! Everyone gets involved as the students walk around with thier linked chains!

Golfer Lou Porcelli, Feed the Hungry volunteer Donal Zube, and golfers Ron Terburgh, Barry Keohan, and Nelson Rheaume pose with donated turkeys by Jay Hobson Scottish Highlands Golf Course hosted its 12th annual benefit for the Pleasant Street United Methodist church’s Feed the Hungry food pantry on Monday. Golfers could play for free if they brought a turkey weighing at least 12 pounds and donated it to Feed the Hungry. According to Marilyn Campbell of Scottish Highlands, as of 9:40 a.m., 63 turkeys had been donated and $110 in cash had been raised to feed area families in need. “The event was supposed to be held last Monday, but had to be rescheduled due to the heavy rain. Some players couldn’t play today, but they dropped off turkeys, anyway,” Campbell said. Scottish Highland’s General Manager Donna Zacharias said that the day was a success. “We were able to raise 110 turkeys, totaling 1,681 pounds of turkey, $210 in cash, and gift certificates to local supermarkets from 119 golfers that participated,” Zacharias said. Zacharias also noted the 12-year total. “Over the 12 years we’ve been doing this, we have been able to raise 1,203 turkeys, totaling 17,335 pounds of turkey and $3,338 in cash and gift certificates to local supermarkets. The cash and gift certificates are accepted in lieu of turkeys because some people can’t carry a heavy turkey, and the cash and gift certificates help the food pantry provide the ‘trimmings’ that go with the turkeys,” Zacharias said.

Selectmen’s Update
by S. Aaron Shamshoyan The Howard Street water tower was the talk of the selectmen at Monday’s meeting, with concerns of rusting and pitting of the walls expressed by Rick Russell, DPW Director. The water tower is currently empty while a contractor installs a mixing valve system that will prevent ice from forming in the winter and keep water in the tank moving at all times. The interior lining of the 1980s tank has dissolved over the years, and now water is causing the metal walls to rust. The tank was inspected in 2007 by a diver who saw signs of pitting, but a wet inspection is not very accurate. When the tank was emptied for the mixing valve contract to be executed, the extent of the wear on the walls became evident. The lining was budgeted to be replaced in 2013, but Russell feels that they cannot wait that long. The current status of the tank is not a health and safety concern, Russell said. The tank can remain empty for the remainder of the winter, as demand for water is down. The Lawrence Road tower is also scheduled for a mixing valve system to be installed this year, but the liner of the tank is not a concern.

Being an American Essay Contest Deadline Approaches
Students and Teachers Can Win Up to $5,000 and Washington, DC Trip in American Citizenship Essay Competition
The deadline for high school students and their teachers to submit essays for the Bill of Rights Institute’s national Being an American Essay Contest is fast approaching. The contest asks students to share their thoughts on American citizenship by answering the question: “What civic value do you believe is most essential to being an American?” The Essay Contest calls upon students to think about the greatest civic values in America. By encouraging students to consider and weigh American values, the Essay Contest serves as a key part of the Bill of Rights Institute’s mission to educate young people about the words and ideas of America’s Founders, the liberties guaranteed in our Founding documents, and how our Founding principles continue to affect and shape a free society. Essay entries are due by 11:59 p.m. EST on December 1. Teachers must submit essays online at www.BeingAnAmerican.org for a chance to win cash prizes from a pool totaling $115,000 and one of 54 all-expenses paid trips to the nation’s capital (awarded both to teachers and their students). Supporting contest materials, including lesson plans meeting national academic standards, are provided at no cost to teachers who want to incorporate the essay topic into the classroom. The names of the top three prize winners in the nine contest regions will be announced at a special Washington, DC Awards Gala in the spring of 2011. The first-place winners in each region and their sponsoring teachers will each receive $5,000 cash awards; second-place winners, $1,000; and third-place winners, $500. Honorable mention prizes of $100 will be awarded to seven students and teachers from each contest region. The winners will also be treated to a tour of prominent national landmarks and will hear from a range of important voices on American citizenship. This year’s keynote address to the winning students will be given by FOX Business Host John Stossel, and author and FOX News Commentator Juan Williams will serve as Master of Ceremonies. Past years’ winners met with Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, who keynoted the awards gala; retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor; Pro Football Hall of Fame Cornerback Darrell Green; and FOX News Commentator Judge Andrew Napolitano. “The Being an American Essay Contest encourages students to see how vital it is to the future of our country and Constitution that they embody key civic values every day,” said Bill of Rights Institute Vice President of Education Programs Jason Ross. “By thinking about the civic values evident in our Founding documents and in the lives of American civic heroes, students can begin to see how their own actions are significant in supporting the experiment in self-government started by our Founders.” The contest, which has fast become the largest high school essay competition in the country, totaling over 100,000 student-submitted essays, is hosted by the Bill of Rights Institute, an organization based in Arlington, VA, that provides free materials and a host of educational opportunities focused on civics and history for teachers and students across the country. The contest is sponsored by the History Channel and the Stuart Family Foundation. Visit the Being an American Website at www. BeingAnAmerican.org for complete rules and materials, including submission details, lesson plans, and background information on the Constitution, Bill of Rights, Founders, and other Americans who have contributed to America’s shared civic values.

submitted by Donna Sovie The Saints Mite 2 team continues to amaze with its skating and passing skills. On Sunday, November 7, we saw a number of Saints, including Sam German and Mac McCarthy, selflessly agree to play for an undermanned Masco squad. The efforts of Ryan Trainor and Thomas Burke were especially noticed that day. The play of the game went to a German pass. The Saints Squirt 3 provided plenty of biscuits in a basket on a Sunday morning brunch date with the Lady Wizards. They skated away with the 5-2 victory, but it was no cake walk, as these girls came to play. Joe Depardo started off the festivities and tallied two for the day. Anthony Survilas, who had a great game, banged home two, and David Olsen snapped one by the goalie on a clean breakaway. The defense was solid, as they jumped on loose pucks in the offensive zone and did a great job clearing in front of their own net. Goaltending by Mason and PJ was solid as usual. The Saints Squirt 1 team tied Melrose, 3-3. The Saints fell behind early in the first, but tied it mid-way through the second on a nice goal by Michael Borelli. The Saints took the lead early in the third on a goal by Brendon Banks assisted by Mason Drouin, but Melrose charged back and scored two goals in three minutes to take the lead. The Saints would not quit, and with the goalie pulled, Joe Moore made a nice pass to Steve Birch, who took a hard wrist shot that was tipped in by Jimmy Harootian with only 17 seconds to play to tie the game. Charlie Beneze, Sebastian Farah, Jon Pinksten, and Birch played strong defense, while Matt Dowdy was spectacular in the net. The Saints Mite 2 team had their first full ice game on Saturday morning, November 13, and the boys came out ready to play. Although a little out-matched by a speedy Top Gun team, our guys held their own and

Salem Saints Game Summaries

Danny Donovan (#8), Nick Donnelly (#81), and Evan Zabarsky (#99) looked great out there. The Saints lone goal was scored by Evan Foskett on a penalty shot. The Saints Squirt 1 team split the weekend with one win and one loss. After their 7-0 defeat from Chelmsford, the Saints Squirt 1 team bounced back by beating Wilmington 5-2 on Sunday afternoon. Birch scored just 17 seconds into the game, with Drouin picking up an assist. Drouin then added one of his own with just over a minute to go in the second on a nice play from Jon Last and Borelli. Just eight seconds later, Borelli scored to give the Saints a commanding, 3-1 lead. Beneze and Harootian scored in the third with assists going to Mason Healey and Drouin. The Saints were anchored by goaltender Dowdy, who received stellar defense by Birch, Moore, Jon Last, and Healey. The Saints Bantam 2 team played on Monday, November 8, against a tough Newburyport B2 team. Salem’s Dominic Bruzzese started off the scoring 20 seconds into the game. The play was back and forth until Newburyport scored in the second period to tie the game at one. Newburyport would go ahead late in third period and, with 22 seconds left in the game, Bruzzese would get his second goal of the game, assisted by Jared Carlson and Evan Zabarsky. The game ended in a tie, 2-2. On Saturday, November 13, the Saints Bantam 2 team lit it up with a 6-1 win against Waltham’s Bantam 3 team. Ryan Nelson had a hat trick. Bruzzese also had a goal, as well as Jake Yennaco and Ryan Montbleau. Assists went to Montbleau, Brad Brock, Carlson, and Dawson Merrill, with great goaltending by Andrew Gosson and Tommy Gillespie. We had some great defensive play by Dustin Kingsley, and great forechecking by Jimmy Tokanel and Seth McCarthy.

Janet C. Pappathan Hughes
Janet C. Pappathan Hughes, 82, of Salem, and Marco Island, FL, daughter of the late George and Olivette Chacos of Nashua, passed away peacefully on November 20, 2010. Janet is survived by her devoted husband, John Hughes of Salem; sons, Arthur D. Pappathan, Jr. and wife Kathleen Wilbur of Derry, Paul Pappathan of Everett, MA, Chris Pappathan and wife Jeannie Pappathan of Pelham, and Matthew N. Pappathan of Northfield, VT. Janet also had three stepchildren, Michael Hughes, Shelly Hughes and the late Brian Hughes. Janet is also survived by sisters Mildred Welch and her husband Leonard Welch, Carole Chacos, Lorraine Lang and husband William Lang, and brothers Edward Chacos, Richard Chacos and his wife Shirley Chacos. Janet’s grandchildren are Christopher Matthew Pappathan and wife Patricia Pappathan, Jessica Pappathan and husband Robert Bertini, Cassandra O’Brien and husband Robert O’Brien. Her greatgrandson is Benjamin Bertini, with another greatgrandchild expected in May. Janet had many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews. She was predeceased by brother, Thomas Chacos; and sisters, Delores LaParl and Alice Sullivan. Janet was a woman of a unique, caring character and personality who quietly influenced the lives of the many family members, friends and acquaintances who knew and loved her. Janet, until stricken with Parkinson’s disease, sailed the Gulf of Mexico with her loving husband, John Hughes, walked the beach of Marco Island, and spent her summers at Canobie Lake in Salem. While she faced many difficulties in her earlier days, Janet found her later years to be truly golden, as they were filled with the peace and happiness she found in the company of her devoted husband, family, and friends. Janet taught her four sons how to fish, play baseball, basketball, football, and other sports, while also passing along her passion for music, art, history, science, and reading. She was a Cub Scout Den Mother, yoga instructor, past president of the Junior Women’s Club and loved to sing. She sacrificed her needs for the needs of others, without comment or complaint. She was a hero to her sons, a devoted wife, a loving sister, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, great-aunt, and a friend to many. She was a kind woman who opened her home and heart to any person in need without hesitation. She always chose the see the best in people, encouraging others to see themselves as she did. She would eat cake for breakfast, loved nature, and appreciated the beauty of the small things one can see when not rushing through life. Some go through life making a big noise without an echo or effect. Some, like Janet, proceed more quietly through life while leaving a lasting, memorable impact that echoes through the lives and hearts of others. Janet will truly be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. Service to be held Sunday, December 12, at 1 p.m. at The Church of the Good Shepherd, 214 Main Street in Nashua. An informal service was held for friends and family in Marco Island on November 21. In lieu of flowers, please make memorial contributions to the charity of your choice in Janet’s name.

Season’s Greetings
Holiday Craft Fair December 5 th

Season’s Greetings
Entertaining at its best happens during the holidays and families and friends create many nostalgic memories around the dinner table. At this busy time of year, you may be tempted to put your table setting on autopilot by using the same plates, stemware and napkins from years before. This season, strive to update your look by dedicating your decorating time to the area where guests gather to eat. A well-appointed tabletop can elevate an everyday meal to an elegant and sophisticated soiree. “Table settings are the backdrop for every meal, yet many hosts often overlook the importance of making that backdrop as appealing and functional as possible,” says Angela Giannapolos, event designer for STUDIO 3 Group, a New York event design and planning firm. “While it’s nice to bring traditional items back year after year, adding new hints of style to your table can go a long way to refreshing your look each season.” Rather than setting a uniform table this year, consider these entertaining tips to add flair to your holiday look: Accentuate with accessories Linens and cloth napkins bring a rich feel to the table. Adding these accents in vibrant colors can make your dinnerware pop and bring a fresh yet festive air to your meal. A simple way to do this is to choose your favorite color and build a theme around it. Blue, green, silver and gold are on-trend holiday colors that can be used in monochromatic variations to make your decor shine. Personalizing your table is another accessory tip that will go a long way with guests. Add reminiscent decor to your setting with items such as vintage Christmas ornaments and pictures from past seasons. Not only will your table look festive, it will also be a fun way to spark holiday conversation. The perfect tabletop pieces When decorating the table, keep in mind that your dinnerware is the star of the show. Consider your personal style when choosing a plate pattern and be sure it’s versatile for many holidays to come. Visit Oneida.com for a range of options, such as the Culinaria Collection offering classic, elegant styles in festive colors or the “HoHoHo” dinnerware line to create a whimsical, seasonal approach to your table.

Salem Animal Rescue League is ‘Halfway There’ to Constructing New Building
SARL and their endeavor to build a new facility on the Farm, which is located on Brady Road in Salem. SARL is fortunate for the donation of the farmland to build their new facility, and are more than halfway there to raising their $3 million goal, they claim. More than 60 people attended the event and were privy to viewing the proposed site plans, asking questions of the “state-of-the-art building,” receiving up-to-date information of the ongoing processes, and participating in one-on-one dialogue about the project. SARL also presented their annual awards for Animal Hero, Best Veterinary Services, Volunteer of the Year, and their Community Service Award during the brunch. SARL is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization whose goal is to find permanent, loving homes for the abandoned and unwanted animals in Salem and the surrounding communities. SARL prides itself on finding the right home for the right pet. For adoption consideration, as a first step, please fill out the Adoption Request/Waiting List Form found under the photos of their dogs and cats on their Website at www.sarl-nh.org. They will contact you when a pet that meets your profile is available for adoption. At that time, they will talk about your expectations, lifestyle, and previous pet experience. SARL reserves the right to refuse to adopt to any applicant. By requesting information on an animal and initiating the screening process, it is not a guarantee that particular animal is yours to adopt. SARL does not place their pets on a “first-come, first-served” basis. They only adopt to local candidates who are able to visit their shelter, and never ship any of their pets, regardless of the suitability of the prospective home. For more information about Salem’s new animal facility, call 893-3117, or e-mail sarldevelopment@aol.com.

by Doug Robinson The Salem Animal Rescue League (SARL) recently hosted their annual Ronald R. Kimball Family Farm Autumn Brunch, on the site of their new location. Those in attendance were offered the opportunity to view plans, communicate with

supporters, and enjoy the complimentary brunch being served. SARL has been hosting the Ronald R. Kimball Family Farm Autumn Brunch annually for four years. The purpose of the brunch is to invite guests who might be or who are interested in

It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is here already and we have completed the first quarter of the 2010-2011 school year! The Lancaster PTA’s fundraising efforts have gotten off to a great start this year. Thanks to all the families who came out to the Family Fun Night in October. The students enjoyed pizza, games, raffles, and face painting. Our fall fundraisers were a great success, and again, a very big thankyou to all the parents and extended families who support our fundraising efforts! We continue to collect Box Tops, Campbell’s Labels for Education, and Tyson Project A+ labels. October’s collection efforts yielded $167 worth of Box Tops! Way to go, Lancaster families! The winner of the October contest was Ms. Rayment’s Team 2. Also, don’t forget to check out www. boxtops4education.com for coupons on your favorite goodies and to enter contests that could win our school free money! In addition, shopping through the Marketplace also gives money back to the school. The next contest runs through November. The classroom earning the most labels will win a game for the classroom, and each student will get to choose from the prize bucket! Good luck and thanks for all your clipping! Please mark your calendars for some exciting upcoming events. The Lancaster PTA will be hosting its second annual Craft/Vendor Fair on Saturday, December 11, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Lancaster Elementary School. We have more than 26 vendors signed up, with a great selection of unique products. Come get some holiday shopping done and let your children enjoy a “Craft and Cocoa with Santa!” from 9 a.m. to noon. This promises to be a great event that you won’t want to miss! Also, students will have the opportunity to do their own holiday shopping at the Lancaster Holiday Store, which will be held December 14-16. Please keep an eye out for additional information that will come home with students in early December. We will need volunteers to help staff the store each day. Lancaster PTA has a new Website: www. lancasterpta.org. Please check it and save it in your Favorites. It will be updated often and has valuable information about upcoming PTA events, fundraisers, and school happenings.

Second graders have news@areanewsgroup.com been very busy at the start of the second quarter. Now that report cards and parent-teacher conferences are behind us, students are fully engaged in Readers and Writers Workshop, Everyday Math, and learning to print neatly with a program called “Handwriting Without Tears.” In addition, they are learning all about the First Thanksgiving, when only 52 surviving Pilgrims joined with almost 100 Native American friends to celebrate the joys of family, food, and friends. They’ve discussed the history of this special holiday and have given pause to reflect upon all the blessings they have to be thankful for. The students and staff at the Barron wish all of our family and friends a Happy Thanksgiving, and look forward to learning new skills each and every day!
