Salem Community Patriot
submitted by Paula Patten There were long lines at Merrimack Valley Montessori School in Salem Tuesday as the preschool and kindergarten children cast their votes for snack. It was a tough race between cookies and cupcakes all week with strong arguments for both sides. The ballot counters will be busy counting ballots well into the night since the children are very anxious to learn who the winner is! The children learned about our democratic process and were all very excited to cast their vote, have their voices be heard and receive the coveted ‘I Voted’ sticker that they proudly wore for the rest of the day.

Rotary Club Recognizes Salem Girls Softball Support of Salem Holiday Parade
Elections Ran Smoothly Despite Big Changes at the Polls
Rotary President Peter Rayno and Treasurer John Moynihan present check to Salem Holiday Parade Chairman Brett Grande submitted by Greater Salem Rotary Club At a recent meeting of the Greater Salem Rotary Club, Brett Grande, VP of Salem Girls Softball and Chairman of the Salem Holiday Parade, was presented with a check for $600 in support of the Salem Holiday Parade. On an annual basis, the Rotary Club recognizes a youth sports volunteer for their work with one of our local youth sports leagues. This year, in recognition of Salem Girls Softball volunteering to continue the tradition of the Salem Holiday Parade, the Club awarded this recognition to Salem Girls Softball. Mr. Grande thanked members for their gift and gave details on the exciting new

Governor-Elect Maggie Hassan (D) greeted supporters at Lancaster School Tuesday morning. by S. Aaron Shamshoyan Long lines as a result of consolidated polling locations had some voters on edge Tuesday, with over 7,000 voters casting their ballots at the Ingram Senior Center. Selectmen’s Chairman Patrick Hargreaves said a high voter turnout caused delays. “It was the perfect storm,” he said, “we had a lot of voters which was challenging.” Hargreaves said the new voter identification law also created a challenge. New legislation requires New Hampshire voters to show identification or sign an affidavit prior to casting their votes. Poll workers said a majority of voters cooperated with the new law. A change in polling locations sent Barron and Town Hall voters to the senior center, creating an extended wait. “We closed two polling areas, combine them into one, and we didn’t add any workers,” Hargreaves said. Parking at the center was also cause for concern. “Parking killed us,” Hargreaves said. Voters lined the sides of Veterans Memorial Parkway, Sally Sweets Way, and parts of Geremonty Drive. The senior center parking lot was full. Voters recently approved the polling changes. “The people voted for this,” said Selectman Stephen Campbell. “We probably had three times as many voters,” he said referring to town elections. Campbell said the turnout won’t be seen for another four years, and will give the board time to review polling procedures. Selectman Everett McBride said delays were cause for concern. “I’m sure we’ll have a great deal of discussion,” he said. McBride suggested the board look into redistricting voters, moving some from the senior center with about 7,200 voters to Lancaster, which has only about 2,800. Both gubernatorial candidates Maggie Hassan (D) and Ovide Lamontagne (R) visited the town, with Hassan stopping by Lancaster in the morning and Lamontagne at the Senior Center in the afternoon. Congressman Charles Bass also visited local polling locations, including the senior center. Moderator Christopher Goodnow announced results of the election early Wednesday morning just before 1 a.m. at the town hall. “The checklist supervisors along with many people were very, very busy,” he said. Goodnow said the day began with 17,856 registered voters, and ended with 19,286. “That’s a huge number,” he said, referring to the over 1,400 newly registered voters. Republicans took every position in Salem, which contradicted the state’s majority.

Rotary Club Volunteers for Quarry Brook Outdoor Learning Center
As a Salem newspaper, the Community Patriot is once again proud to announce its support of the Salem Christmas Fund .during its 2012 campaign. According to Chairman Alan Phair, since the beginning of the fund almost 40 years ago, this organization has been the primary provider of help for Salem residents in need during the Holiday Season. Last year, the Salem Christmas Fund helped close to 900 Salem residents with food baskets, clothing vouchers and toys. They also worked in conjunction with the Knights of Columbus in helping provide a Christmas Day Dinner for those who would otherwise be spending the Holiday alone. Just the thought that such an organization exists, shows people that there is help available in these hard economic times and that our Community understands and cares! The Christmas Fund works with local guidance counselors, human service agencies, Churches and others to make sure that those with the greatest need are cared for. Sometimes just a call from a school to say they have a child without a coat reveals a family in need. Unfortunately, any times individuals are too shy to come forward for assistance themselves. The fund attempts to help by providing outreach services for those people. Confidentiality is always maintained so people need nor worry that others will know of their plight. We all know that economic conditions are worse than ever Phair said & we anticipate the request for help this year to be the greatest in its long history. We are still very proud to say that since its inception, the Salem Christmas Fund, Inc. has never let an eligible family miss a Christmas dinner or failed to let a child get a visit from Santa.. Once again, we had to dig into what little reserves we had last year so we need help more than ever this year, if are to meet this our anticipated demands. Once again, here are numerous businesses and Churches that help out with our “wish trees” This year, thanks to the generosity of the Simon Property Group and the Mall at Rockingham Park, they will also participate with a tree full of “wish” tags located at the Mall Service Center. Please pick up a tag and help a make Christmas special for a child in need.

by Len Lathrop At 9:30 a.m. Saturday, there were 40 people waiting for the 10 a.m. opening of the Tuscan Market. Located across the parking lots of the Tuscan Kitchen, it appears that Joe Faro has a second success on his hands. Following a Ribbon Cutting by Master of Ceremonies and TV celebrity Billy Costa, the doors opened. The 10,000 square foot marketplace has everything you would find in Italy, truly authentic food made from scratch. Located at 67 Main Street, you will be overwhelmed by the sights and smells before you even enter the building. The beauty of the market concept is that it takes all of our favorite traditional Italian experiences that we love to enjoy and usually visit individually and combines them all under one roof. The experience begins and invokes all of the senses long before the first bite of food is tasted. If the cobblestone piazza, beautiful fountain and classic pergola columns don’t make you feel like you are in an Italian Village as you Tuscan Market owner Joe Farro and TV celebrity Billy Costa at the ribbon cutting approach the Tuscan Market, the sights and smells that greet you when you step inside will. The aroma of fresh baked bread, slow cooked sauces, homemade pizza, Panini and Italian-espresso will greet guests that have come to shop or eat. The open concept provides visitors with the ability to watch all types of food being prepared from homemade pasta and cannoli shells to 25 flavors of gelato that have been refined to perfection. In addition to prepared foods a butcher shop, cheese selection, variety of produce, a wine cellar featuring over 3,000 bottles of imported Italian wines, and an extensive selection of specialty products imported from various regions in Italy such as Tuscany, Sicily, Puglia and Emilia Romagna are available for purchase. If you would like to linger for a while the café includes seating for 65 where you can enjoy coffee, espresso and a bite to eat and the 50-seat patio will be open for lunch or a late afternoon snack. For those that require instruction on how to create an Artesian Italian experience in your own home, cooking demonstrations and classes will be available. “Allowing our customers the opportunity to see all of our products being prepared gives them the chance to “look Joe’s vision has taken him back to his culinary under the hood” and see how we roots and his business experiences have led him make the food that they enjoy.” to be people centric. “My goal is to provide people with a true Artisan Italian experience. There is no greater satisfaction for me than seeing the pleasure people experience when they enjoy our food.” The Tuscan Market will be open seven days a week; Monday through Thursday, Personal Benefits Consultant 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Friday and Karen A Archer 603-553-9040 Saturday, 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Independent Licensed Agent 877-728-9593 Sunday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Salemhaven’s Pet Cat Needs Help
by Kristen Hoffman Tux, Salemhaven’s furriest resident is in need of help. Tux the cat, named for his tuxedo-like coat was introduced to Salemhaven with much fanfare in March. The three-year-old feline is in need of about $1,200 worth of veterinary care. According to Stephanie Micklon, the Community Liaison for Salemhaven, the cat has been displaying some odd symptoms: He’s been having a hard time keeping his head straight. When standing straight, the black and white cat’s head has a tendency to roll backwards. Tux was adopted as part of Salem Animal Rescue League’s “Pick of the Litter,” program. Tux, and his sister cat, Vader were previously owned by a Salem resident, who was serving the country as a member of the armed forces. When their owner was dispatched overseas, she brought the animals to SARL in hopes that they’d be placed in a nice home. Vader was adopted several weeks after Tux. Micklon explained that the vets do not know what is causing this peculiar issue. They will only be able to find out once x-rays and, if needed, an ultrasound is completed. Tux started out his new life at Salemhaven with a hefty bank account. The animal attracted donations from all over Salem. “He had an account for all the creature comforts,” Micklon said. But his bills are adding up. Despite the financial hardship, no one is giving up on Tux just yet. “We’re doing everything we can to get him healthy again. The residents love him,” Micklon said. She added that Vet bills are very expensive. Most likely, Tux will have to spend the weekend and a good part of next week at the animal hospital in wait of an ultrasound. In his nine months at Salemhaven, Tux has made quite an impression on many of residents and family. Micklon said Tux has brought comfort to visiting families, giving them something else to focus on when visiting a family member with failing health. Micklon said such stories were unexpected, as Tux was introduced to be a friend for the residents, but his comforting abilities have spread far beyond the walls of patient rooms. “He’s king of the hill around here,” Micklon said. Micklon said the staff and residents are being realistic about the situation at hand. While they don’t want to lose Tux, they also don’t want the animal to suffer. “We’re looking for the most sensible and humane answer for everybody,” she said. She added that the decision could be easier to make if he was one pet’s family, but he isn’t. He has dozens of owners; all who look forward to seeing him make his rounds every morning. If anyone is interested in sending a donation, they are asked to make a check out to Salemhaven and write, Tux the cat account on the memo line. “We’re praying for Tux,” Micklon said.

Ken Gray of Nashua participates in the event every year. Around 11:30 he dropped of a 23-pound butterball. He said while he loves playing golf, the charity aspect makes it even nicer. Marilyn Campbell, the owner of the course was pleased with the turnout this year. Turkey Day is the last event of the course’s season. By noon, the course had collected about 90 turkeys and 11 gift certificates. By the first hour and a half the course collected 800 pounds of turkey. After three hours, that number was closer to 1000. The crew, including volunteers from the food pantry continuously loaded the bed of a Ford pick up truck. Once the bed was filled the truck delivered the birds to the pantry. The made at least three drop offs during the course of the day. Luckily for the turkeys, the temperature didn’t get much above 40 degrees. Thanks to hard work, caring hands and diehard golf fans, the holidays will be a little brighter for some struggling Salem families.

Turkey Day Turns Out Big Crowd
by Kristen Hoffman It’s always encouraging to see people come together in times of need. As the holiday season approaches, it is often asked that the more fortunate offer an hand to the less fortunate. This traditional spirit of giving has persevered through good times and bad. Campbell’s Scottish Highlands Golf Course is helping to keep the tradition alive through golf. The Course held it’s 17th annual “Turkey Day” golf event. All 117 participants had to donate either a turkey or a gift certificate in order to play 18 holes of golf. All turkeys and gift certificates were donated to the Salem Food Pantry.

Salem Brings Attention to Prevention of Infant Abuse
submitted by Salem Family Resources-Success By 6 Salem Family Resources-Success By 6 collected over 200 handmade purple colored baby caps to help raise awareness of the work being done around the state with the Period of PURPLE Crying infant abuse prevention program. Salem Family Resources was invited to participate in this campaign by New Hampshire Children’s Trust. Talented crafters included the Knitting group at the Ingram Senior Center in Salem, led by Amy Wallace, Virginia and Anne Rowe, Betty Tonnesen, Jeanne Bedrosian, and Louise Olson from the Triumphant Cross Lutheran Church, Prudence G. Nies of Salem and other generous members of local communities. Many parents have no idea what to expect when they bring their new baby home from the hospital,” says Maria Doyle, Training and Evaluation Director with the New Hampshire Children’s Trust and Prevent Child Abuse Hew Hampshire. “The goal of the Period of PURPLE Crying program is to give parents reasonable expectations and let them know that all healthy infants cry more in the first few weeks and months of life. The crying will come to end and it is okay to put the infant down in a safe place and take a break when feeling frustrated.” The Period of PURPLE Crying is a new way for parents to understand their baby’s crying. The word PURPLE is an acronym, which reminds parents in an easy to remember way all of the characteristics of normal infant crying. The letters in PURPLE stand for: Peak of crying - The baby may cry more each week, peaking at two months, and then less at three to five months. Unexpected - The crying can come and go, with no explanation. Resists soothing - The baby might not stop crying no matter what you try. Pain-like face - It may look like the baby is in pain, even when they are not. Long lasting - The baby might cry 5 hours per day or more. Evening - The baby might cry more in the late afternoon or evening More information about the campaign is available at www. nhchildrenstrust.org. More information about programs of Salem Family ResourcesSuccess By 6 is available at www.salemfamilyresources.org and contact at firstname.lastname@example.org or 898-5493. Youngsters from the Salem Family Resources Parenting & Play Groups join Amy Wallace, Ingram Senior Center knitters group, Cindy Jury, Salem Family Resources, and Anne Rowe, Triumphant Cross Lutheran Church, with a display of the handmade purple colored baby caps collected for infant abuse prevention.
Emergency Power Concerns Leave 2013 Server Room in the Dark
by S. Aaron Shamshoyan Lights could be out for a plan to construct a server room at town hall as reductions in allocated funds and concerns about emergency power may cause selectmen to pull the plug. A plan, originally proposed to be funded at $100,000 to construct a new server room and relocate town machines, has been cut twice as selectmen sought additional reductions to lower the proposed 2013 tax rate, leaving only three quarters of the original amount. Plans changed Monday when Town Manager Keith Hickey told selectmen the current generator would not be able to power the necessary additional cooling. “There is not enough power form the generator to supply an additional HVAC unit.” Hickey told the board currently some necessary emergency lighting was not functioning. The town manager said a new unit in a smaller room could run more efficiently, adding the current room was excessively warm for computer equipment on hot days. The lack of emergency power was a concern for Selectman Everett McBride. “We really need to replace the generator,” he said. Hickey said Fire Chief Kevin Breen was looking into the possibility of a fifty-fifty match to fund a replacement generator, saying the unit would power equipment used by the department. “I certainly think we should do the generator,” said McBride. Chairman Hargreaves said $56,000 would fund half the generator, construction of the server room, an HVAC unit, control and surveillance equipment, and a fire protection system. He said the money would cover 60-percent of the project leaving the rest for 2014. Generator costs were a concern for Selectman James Keller, saying the install would be more than $65,000. He said moving the generator to reduce noise impact for neighbors would mean new wiring, a new cement pad, and burying lines under the parking lot. Selectman Stephen Campbell suggested the town enclose the generator in its current location to reduce noise and costs. “I just want to make progress,” he said. McBride suggested the town use allocated moneys to install the generator in 2013. “I’m willing to put the generator in,” he said. Hickey said the results of the grant request will be known late 2012 or early 2013. The board did not vote on the issue but said they could amend the current allocated $75,000 at town meeting when a formal plan to replace the generator could be presented. The board based the discussed $65,000 generator replacement cost on a generator recently replaced at Central Fire Station. That generator replaced an existing one in the same location.

Annual Prudential Verani Realty Coat Drive Kicks Off
submitted by Nick Wheeler Thursday, November 1, marked the official start of one of the largest coat drives in the state of New Hampshire. For the 11th year running, Prudential Verani Realty will be collecting coats from all over the state and distributing them to charities in need. In past years the drive has brought in 12,000-plus coats, and the coat drive team at Verani Realty looks to make 2012 another banner year of bringing warmth to those who need it in New Hampshire. The Verani Realty coat drive was established 11 years ago. Since the initial coat drive in 2001, the Prudential Verani Realty Coat Drive has been responsible for distributing coats to the shoulders of well over 50,000 of those who needed help staying warm. In 2012 the committee is headed up by Val Lewis. Val is a Customer Account Manager in the Londonderry office and is handling the coordination of the company’s coat drive efforts for the first time. Val has worked with Verani Realty for six years, and has participated in the coat drive since she started in 2006. Val is coordinating the efforts of seven team leaders including Debbie Paone from Salem. The coat drive team consists of several current agents, administrators, and corporate team members who are committed to making 2012 another great year. If you have coats that you would like to donate to this cause, you may drop them off at our Salem Verani Realty Office lobby located at 236 North Broadway. If you are interested in helping contribute as a drop-off location, large donation contributor, sorting volunteer, or any other form of volunteer, visit coats.verani.com for more information.

It was 100 years ago, in 1912, when PolishAmerican scientist Casimir Funk identified the first vitamin. Now, on the 100th anniversary of the discovery of vitamins, men and women still do not get recommended daily intake levels of vitamins. According to a paper published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, only 1 percent of the population meets minimum standards of a balanced diet. Age matters when it comes to vitamins. All vitamins are essential - meaning our bodies can’t make them, so they must be obtained from the diet. Throughout life, we all need the right mix of the 13 essential vitamins, but some are more important than others when it comes to different life stages. “With a century of vitamin knowledge upon us, it’s a good reminder to stay up to date on the latest vitamin recommendations,” says Elizabeth Somer, registered dietitian and author of “Eat Your Way to Sexy” (Harlequin, 2012). “New vitamin research findings are continuously being uncovered around the needs of men and women during unique times in their lives.” A quick stroll through life’s stages reveals:
healthy body, mind, and spirit.
Age Matters: Vitamins for Every Life Stage
20s: Folic acid is important for women in their 20s - a prime childbearing age - because this B vitamin is essential in preventing birth defects like spina bifida in infants. Women need at least 400mcg per day, but often don’t get enough. By the time a pregnancy test comes back positive and women ponder taking a supplement, it could be too late. 30s: Antioxidant vitamins, including C and E are important for men and women in their 30s because these vitamins help protect against the development of cataracts and macular degeneration. Adults with high levels of these antioxidants are at a low risk of vision loss later in life. 40s and beyond: Vitamins D and B12 are important in the 40s and well after. As we get older, we are less efficient at making vitamin D and we may be susceptible to drops in the levels of vitamin absorption. Vitamin B12 deficiencies are typically due to insufficient diet and absorption challenges. Somer shares tips to help you get more of the essentials into your daily diet. Tip 1: Survey what you’re eating. Use a food journal to see what you need to add or remove
healthy body, mind, and spirit.
from your diet. Make a weekly food schedule to help you meet nutritional requirements. Gain an understanding of the vitamins found in different foods - one helpful resource is the 100 Years of Vitamins website. Tip 2: Up your fruit and vegetable intake to help add one or two extra servings of these vitaminpacked foods. Have a cup of frozen blueberries; it will give you about 25 percent of your vitamin C requirement. Eat about a half cup of baby carrots and get 120 percent of your Vitamin A requirement. Try dipping the carrots in low-fat vegetable dip or salsa for added flavor. Tip 3: Add one or two enriched or fortified foods to your daily diet, like whole grain cereal or oatmeal fortified with vitamin D, soy milk and other soy products fortified with B12, or whole wheat tortillas - like Mission Life Balance - fortified with vitamin A. Tip 4: Eat “real” unprocessed foods at least 75 percent of the time. You may want to add a multivitamin supplement to your diet to help fill in the gaps on days when you don’t eat perfectly.

Governor Announces Unemployment Insurance Tax Cut for NH Employers
Gov. John Lynch has announced a cut in the unemployment insurance tax paid by 40,000 New Hampshire employers. The reduction applies to taxable wages paid to employees during the fourth quarter of 2012, which began on October 1. This .5 percent reduction will be the first of two reductions in the unemployment insurance tax. A second reduction is expected go into effect January 1. “This is good news for New Hampshire businesses, and I am very pleased that we are able to provide this tax cut for employers across the state. We made a promise to businesses that we would cut this tax once the unemployment trust regained its strength and we are keeping that promise,” Gov. Lynch said. “The recent recession marked the most difficult economic time the state has faced since the Great Depression. Through our careful management of the unemployment trust fund, we were able to ensure the fund was able to meet the needs of New Hampshire families at a time when they needed it most.” Due to the national recession and the greater number of unemployment claims that resulted from it, the balance of the unemployment trust fund dropped significantly, putting the fund at the risk of insolvency. In accordance with state law, a .5 percent emergency surcharge was added in 2009 to help increase the fund balance. A second .5 percent surcharge was added in 2010 as the effects of the recession continued to impact the state and the nation. The law gives the commissioner of Employment Security the discretion to add or remove the surcharge based on the balance of the trust fund. The Advisory Council on Unemployment Compensation, which includes representatives from the state’s business community, supported the addition of the surcharge. “The New Hampshire business community supported these surcharges because they recognized the importance of keeping the trust fund viable. Our management has strengthened the fund and is allowing us to take these important steps for our businesses,” said Employment Security Commissioner George Copadis. The average New Hampshire employer pays 3.5 percent in unemployment compensation tax on the first $14,000 in wages per employee. Currently, that amounts to $490 per employee. Each .5 percent reduction will provide the average New Hampshire employer with a savings of $70 – or 14 percent cut in tax – per employee, according to Employment Security.

Boys Cross Country Qualifies for State Meet
by Jacob Gagnon To be successful in the sport of cross country, a runner must be driven both physically and mentally. It was that mentality that comprised the core of the Salem High School Boys Cross Country squad. Senior captains Mitch Dutton, John Rheaume and Tyler Breen shined in both the Division I and Meet of Champions races. It was what Head Coach Jason Thibodeau had expected. “I expected us to meet the Meet of Champions which we did which will show all of the work we put in the past few months,” said Thibodeau. The Blue Devils finished seventh in the Division I race on Saturday, October 27, at Derryfield Park in Manchester. While a couple of the Salem runners would have qualified by finishing in the top spots for individuals, Salem was able to advance as a team. It was a complete effort from the Boys’ squad. “We had some strong performances in the middle of our pack. We didn’t run our best race, but we qualified,” said Thibodeau. “We worked as a team, not towards any individual runner to get us to the Meet of Champions.” Junior Joe Settineri finished 20th overall in the Division I meet with a time of 17:00. Dutton finished at 17:14 in 29th place. While it was not Dutton’s greatest race, it did maintain his title of the team’s most consistent runner. Dutton has led the team all season, along with his Breen and Rheaume. “My three seniors have stepped it up quite a bit,” said Thibodeau. “Those three guys are the backbone of our team right now.” On Saturday, November 3, Salem High competed in the Meet of Champions held at Nashua South High School. The Blue Devils were not able to achieve their next tier of goals by earning a berth to the New England Championships but still finished in a respectable 13th place. Still, Thibodeau was pleased with how this year went for both his seniors and his younger runners who will look to make an even bigger impact next season. Juniors Settineri and Alex Fredette will be returning in leadership roles for Salem. Sophomores Brandon Lacroix and Sean Bolvin, two first-time varsity runners this season, will continue to develop under Thibodeau’s guidance. “Overall I will look back and call this season a team success. It shows that every runner can make an impact,” said Thibodeau. Few runners, Thibodeau knows, have made the kind of impact

that Mitch Dutton had in his career at Salem. “Mitch Dutton will go down as one of Salem’s best runners ever. He was our top runner all year, broke 16 minutes a few times on a three mile course,” said Thibodeau. “Mitch had the determination, diet and physical drive you look for in a runner.” Dutton will use his frustrations at not making it to a New England tournament to push him for the upcoming track season. “I know this will feed his fire to become one of the state’s top track runners,” said Thibodeau. For the rest of the Blue Devils program, it will soon be time again for offseason workouts. While the captain’s leadership may be leaving after graduation, the Boys’ Cross Country team’s focus will not waver. As always, the veteran runners will ascend to the helm of the squad and the younger runners will continue to improve. Thibodeau’s goals, every year, will not change. His desire to be one of the best is infectious and, soon enough, the 2013 Salem High Boys’ Cross Country team will have it. “We will continue to push our underclass and make it our goal to be at the state meet in 2013,” said Thibodeau.
Girls Volleyball Claims Division I Title with Win Over Goffstown
by Jacob Gagnon The Blue Devils have had the ability to get better as a game wears on, which is a quality that separates champions from contenders. That is one of the reasons why on Saturday, November 3, the Salem High School Girls Volleyball team became the New Hampshire Division I State Champions. Salem defeated Goffstown High School, three sets to one, in front of a packed gymnasium at Pinkerton Academy. The team, led by Head Coach John Roemer, looked as focused and ready as ever. Stoic looks were etched across their faces that only broke into a smile, albeit a quick one, after a good point or a block. All energy was reserved for their opponent. It was the same squad, although consistently improving, that has dominated the Division I ranks all season. In the semi-finals, Salem took a decisive win over Dover High School, three sets to none, on Wednesday, October 31 at Pinkerton Academy. As each point passed, and the game wore on, Salem’s dominant qualities began to shine through. Their talent, along with their vicious mentality, was evident. “We didn’t let anything drop, which is a very aggressive mentality,” said Roemer. Senior Hannah O’Shaughnessy collected 10 kills in the semi-final win. Juniors Olivia Burke and Alyssa Kolbert each had three blocks. Senior Rachel Morrissey had 18 digs, as well as four aces. Senior Kelsey Card, as she has done all season, set the pace for the Blue Devils offensively. Junior Amanda Bickford, once again, proved that she is as crucial to this squad this season, as she will be as a leader next year. While she may be a year behind some of her starting peers, Bickford has shown that she belongs among the best players in the state. “Amanda Bickford impressed us quite a bit,” said Roemer. “Amanda stepped up when she needed to step up.” Roemer had hoped his team would continue to hit their postseason stride three days later. “We’re peaking. We’re getting better and better every game.” On November 3, Salem peaked. “We were definitely nervous but we got over those nerves,” said Morrissey as she gripped onto the Division I, New Hampshire-shaped championship trophy. “It’s amazing how we’ve grown since our very first game.” Burke had 13 kills with 4.5 blocks, while Bickford had 11 kills in the championship match. Card earned 43 assists as she set up the Blue Devil offense through each set. Morrissey, as she has been known for all season, collected 26 digs. Senior Brianna Wojtas had four blocks and junior Alyssa Kolbert had 3.5 blocks. Junior Alyssa Matthews and O’Shaughnessy had four aces apiece. “We overcame those nerves and we played together as a team. I feel so proud. The seniors deserved it. We just decided that we needed to play like we played the whole season and never give up,” said Bickford. Roemer, who had coached the Salem High Boys Volleyball squad through an undefeated state championship season months earlier, believes that the girls’ title was more difficult to attain because of the stiff competition within the division. Goffstown High School won the first set, 25-23, and held their own throughout the contest. Salem took the final three sets, 25-23, 26-24 and 2517. Still, the Grizzlies did not let the Blue Devils have their celebration without a battle. Roemer understood how hard-earned the victory was for his team. “They wanted it bad. They played the best volleyball I’ve seen them play,” said Roemer. “We knew eventually we were going to get into our rhythm and we finally did.” As the Salem High School athletes grouped together for pictures, clad in their championship medals, they all seemed to breathe a sigh Junior Olivia Burke blocks a ball in the final set of relief.

Football Falls to Central in Regular Season Finale
High defeated Salem, 50-6, to close out both team’s regular seasons. While the winless plateau has yet to be shattered, the improvements of the rebuilding Salem squad are evident. The Blue Devils turned in a strong defensive effort for the first half of the game, before Central was able to push through for more points in the second half. Seniors Steve Bemister at running back and Dominic Gigante at linebacker returned for the Blue Devils after taking time off due to injuries. Junior Anthony DeNuccio has done well filling in at the linebacker position. Senior Ryan Nichols also made his return to the gridiron and battled throughout the game. Nichols outpouring of effort has been clear in every game of the season. “This year is something that most of us seniors are going to carry on the rest of our lives with facing adversity,” said Nichols. “I’ll happily say that the only thing that stunk about this year was our record. That’s it. Nothing else.” On the offensive side of things, junior Jason Martinez continues to develop into an impact player at running back. Martinez scored the Blue Devils’ lone touchdown of the game in the first quarter. “I’m impressed with Jason Martinez. He’s starting to figure things out. I’m impressed with his leadership skills and it’s exciting that he’s a junior,” said Gagne. Sophomore Jacob Lakos, at quarterback, was able to drive down the field at times but the Blue Devils could not find a way to reach the end zone again after the first quarter. Senior Rasheed Adigun collected an interception as well as a few hard-hitting defensive plays to keep Salem competitive until the end. “We’re a much better team than what we showed. They’re a good team, but we showed that we could hang with them in the first quarter but then we lost our heads,” said Nichols. “This was not us.” “We’re a better team than what we showed tonight. All season long we’ve been progressing, the kids have been playing hard and tonight I feel like we took a step back,” said Gagne. “I don’t know what happened, but I’m going to fix it.” The Blue Devils will move on from another defeat with their focus now set on Lawrence High School the day before Thanksgiving. With nearly three weeks left before the contest, Gagne is as motivated as ever. “We’ve got two and a half weeks of cold football, New England-style football and we want to win a football game,” said Gagne. The practices will not lose their intensity even though the regular season has ceased. Positions for next season, as well as the next game, are at stake every time the Blue Devils take the field. “We have a next-man-up mentality. I like to keep the competition going, I like to have kids feeling like they have another kid on their heels and the motivation takes care of itself,” said Gagne. Coach Adam Gagne is in internal overdrive when most coaches would be taking time to lick their wounds. He sees the negatives on the scoreboard and on the field, and the work that still needs to be done, but he also sees through all of that. He sees the potential. For Gagne, it is the “what could be” for the Salem High Football program that drives him. Gagne is able to view each loss the way Babe Ruth saw each strike, with every one bringing him closer to his next home run. Gagne believes each loss in this trying season will be worth it in the end for the Blue Devils.

by Jacob Gagnon It has been a season of challenges for the Salem High School Football team. It had not exactly been a dream year for Head Coach Adam Gagne in his first season with the program. The resilience of both Gagne and his squad, however, have illuminated the 2012 season amidst the darkness of defeat. In their final game of the regular season, the Blue Devils continued to show their fight as they battled Central High School at Gill Stadium in Manchester on Friday night, November 2. While the Blue Devils no longer had the opportunity to spoil Central’s season, as the Little Green had already clinched a playoff berth, Salem still took the field looking to secure their first win of the season. The Blue Devils will have to wait until the day before Thanksgiving on November 21, before another opportunity at victory arises. Central
